  • There are about 14 visible cracks on a bridge pier that supports the new elevated bridge off Garland avenue in the downtown area. The bridge is completed but has yet to open as FDOT says, “Some cracking has been pointed out... We are investigating whether this is cosmetic or a structural matter.”  The L shaped bridge pier can be seen with horizontal cracks that are marked with multiple small circles and four drill holes. According to the construction expert contacted, the drill holes are used to keep the larger cracks from further expanding.  He goes on to say, if a cosmetic issue is concluded the team can fill in the cracks and the drill holes continuing with the schedule as planned. However, if it’s deemed structural then the project team must decide whether to bring down the grade of the bridge or tear it down and replace it.  Bringing down the grade of bridge could mean limiting the weight of cars and trucks that are allowed to take the ramp to ensure it is well maintained. Signs could be put up as a result with a list of restrictions.  Tearing down a bridge would be the less desirable option for a construction team, the expert says.  The I-4 Ultimate is estimated to cost more than $2.3 billion in year-of-expenditure dollars and scheduled to be completed by 2021. With many components, any setback can threaten their timeline.  The bridge is set to open June 15. Though FDOT was not open for an interview, they say the project is still on time and safety is their top priority.  
  • Actor Jim Carrey has been getting a lot of heat after his tweet on March 17  of a portrait he made. The portrait is being said to closely resemble White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a caption that reads “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” Criticism about the portrait lead to Carrey’s next portrait tweeted two days later with a caption that read “If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy... ‘THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING AND PUTIN’S FLYING MONKEYS’”  These portraits are only a few of the cartoons Carrey has been posting on his Twitter that are heavily political. 
  • Chasity Foster took to Facebook after losing her cross necklace which contained her 17-year-old daughter’s ashes.  Foster says the race was something her and her daughter, Shaylin, always ran with their large group of friends. After Shaylin died in a car accident in January, her friends and family felt they needed to run the race for her. During the race Foster said she realized the necklace was gone which left her feeling unable to finish the race, however after being reminded that it’s what Shaylin would have wanted they finished the half marathon. The search for the necklace has been overwhelming for Foster. “We’re really, really touched just beyond measure by how many people are helping us and we really, really appreciate it.”  She asks that if anyone finds the necklace to please turn it in to the Disney Lost and Found.  
  • After 26 years of racing, Danica Patrick will be retiring from her racing career to work on her other businesses and GoDaddy is supporting the new direction her life will be taking. During the Daytona 500 GoDaddy will be airing an ad with Patrick engaged in her new lifestyle; doing book signings, exercising and working on her new clothing line “Warrior”.  The focus of the ad will be “Make Your Idea Real” which is a shift from what both Patrick and GoDaddy are known for in their commercials. Patrick has made 21 commercials for GoDaddy, 13 of which were placed in past Super Bowls, but this is one of the first commercials where Patrick is fully dressed and is not classified as “racy” or “risque.” Many people have criticized past ad spots claiming they were sexualizing Patrick and using her looks to sell rather than her talent. Patrick says she does not pay to attention the criticism. “I don't ever regret anything I've ever done. Everybody grows up and evolves and GoDaddy has gone away from those kind of commercials and I've gone away from those kind of commercials,” she said. It has been 11 years since Patrick first starred in a GoDaddy ad and GoDaddy says, “Our new GoDaddy commercial highlights Danica's aspirations for life-after-racing, and how having a smart online presence helps her attain her goals.” The Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 will be Patrick’s final races before retiring. 
  • Seminole State College in Sanford recently opened the doors to their new, state-of-the-art Student Center on January 2 and held a dedication program January 19. The two-story building cost $21 million, not including design and furnishing, and was funded through a PICO request from the state. Seminole State says the total investment was $25 million. After a multiyear process, the institution received the taxpayer funds they needed to begin construction. The result was a stunning building built offering students a hub for all their college needs from advising to gaming. According to Jan Lloyd, AVP of Student Development, before this building the students had to cross different parts of campus to receive the help they now receive at the Student Center.  “They love that everything is together,” student body president Caleb Hylton said about the students’ reaction to the new facility. Though Hylton admits the commute between buildings was not something he had realized until after it was all in one convenient location, he shares that he really enjoys his new SGA office in the center. Equipped with a gaming room, food court and an ample amount of USB charging ports, students are now able to relax and study from any spot in the new Student Center.

  • Four days after the announcement of a series of executive actions to fund his signature border wall, President Donald Trump’s administration still needs to fill in the details on his plans to shift over $6.6 billion from the Pentagon and Treasury Department into funding border security, as members of Congress continue to wonder if the move will dig into their local military base construction projects. On Capitol Hill, lawmakers and their staffs were awaiting guidance on where the Pentagon would look for money in the $3.6 billion sought by the President in his emergency declaration from military construction projects, which was already the subject of new lawsuits. “Congress has not enacted any emergency legislation even remotely related to border wall construction, and thus the President’s reallocation of funds is unlawful,” read a suit filed against the President and Pentagon by several environmental groups. In a letter to the Acting Secretary of Defense, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) asked for a breakdown of which projects would be put on hold – as under the ‘national emergency’ law used by the President, the Pentagon would make those decisions – not the Congress. Congress approved $10.3 billion for military construction in Fiscal Year 2019 – the $3.6 billion sought by the President would be more than one-third of that amount – which has drawn expressions of concern from lawmakers. As Kaine noted in his letter, the move to shift money from military construction comes at a time when the Pentagon already was having to deal with hurricane damage at two major domestic bases – Camp Lejeune for the Marines in North Carolina, and Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. Tyndall was seriously damaged by Hurricane Michael in 2018 – and despite support for rebuilding the base, Congress has not yet acted on extra money for the Pentagon – or on broader hurricane relief for those hit in Florida and Georgia. During the partial government shutdown, Democrats in the House approved a bill which had $12.1 billion in disaster aid, both for hurricanes and wildfires – but that bill does not seem to be on the agenda in the U.S. Senate at this point. @DrNealDunnFL2 Dr Dunn, we are hearing here in the Panhandle that Trump is going after Tyndall rebuilding money for his wall. Please don’t let this happen! No Tyndall would be catastrophic to our area. Please help! — Billy Shears (@BillyShears9) February 14, 2019 The Commandant of the Marine Corps said over the weekend that he needs $3.5 billion just for repairs at Camp LeJeune from damage caused by Hurricane Florence in September of 2018 – which is equal to the figure of how much in military construction the President wants to shift into a border wall. Earlier this month, Air Force officials said they planned to spend $3 billion to rebuild Tyndall, which was flattened by Hurricane Michael in October of last year. House Democrats say they plan to hold a hearing as soon as next week to get a better idea on what military construction projects the Pentagon wants to scrap – in order to move money to the wall. Also still unclear is the legal underpinnings for two other moves announced last week by the White House, where the President would move money from a Treasury Department drug forfeiture fund, as well as money from a Pentagon anti-drug account – into a border wall.
  • Following two accidents in recent months, the Orlando Fire Department has announced new roadway safety procedures. The changes include shutting down two additional lanes of traffic on major highways and other roads, as well as placing cones between the crash and the responding unit, and requesting additional backup from the Orlando Police Department following an accident. This will include accidents on major roads such as I-4, State Road 408 and State Road 417. An additional fire suppression unit will also head to the scene, and be angled in a way to alert drivers of an upcoming accident. It comes after an accident Sunday on I-4, when a car slammed into a fire truck, injuring four firefighters and two others. Also, on December 21st, 2018, a vehicle rear ended a fire engine on State Road 408, causing minor injuries to the driver and three Orlando firefighters. The changes are set to take effect immediately. 
  • It's Star Wars movie season once again, and the latest installment in the series has finally finished filming. Director J.J. Abrams made the announcement on Twitter saying: ' It feels impossible, but today(Friday) wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I'm forever indebted to you all.'  To celebrate the occasion, he posted a picture of stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac embracing each other on the final day of filming.  Now that the filming is out of the way, the fun part is getting everything else done before the December 20th deadline, when it is released in theaters. So far there has been no official title, trailer, or teaser of any kind, but of course, we can expect that to come out as we get closer.
