Florida news

It’s been a busy week in Florida news. In the past few days, I’ve written about an alligator that attacked a 90-year-old woman, a presidential candidate and a bug that transmits bacteria by vomiting:

1. The alligator: be really careful when walking near canals or freshwater ponds. There are monsters in Florida, and they can be very dangerous.

2. The presidential candidate: Tampa is the location of the 2012 GOP national convention. So the candidates are coming to town often and some, like Mitt Romney, are opening their Florida headquarters in Tampa as well.

3. The vomiting bug: I actually cover Florida agriculture, and it’s always fun to explain what’s going on with our trees, plants and crops.
