DELAND, FLA. -- 685 days have passed since Sheriff Mike Chitwood, the Scumbag Eradicator, was sworn into office. His first deliberate action: Ban  Central Florida's most prolific reporter from his press conferences, cut off the email media alerts, deny the press cards -- do everything he can to minimize the threat that he knows can upstage his mediocrity and overt cartoonish mannerisms.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The ruling by a judge in favor of CNN and White House Correspondent Jim Acosta gives me renewed hope in my own fight with Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood, a proven liar, an opportunist whose use of his office to limit my media capabilities clearly violates the law. 

Acosta returned to his post at the White House on Friday following a court ruling that forced the Trump administration to reinstate his press pass, CNN reported.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- There's a Biblical passage from Galatians 6:7 that is apropos in describing Daytona Beach's state of affairs in struggling to come to grips with its entrenched homeless zombie apocalypse: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

DEBARY, Fla. -- The Republican Club of Southwest Volusia October is holding a meet and talk to candidates tonight with the following scheduled to appear: West Volusia Hospital Authority Group B Seat 2 candidate Michael Ray and DeBary Seat 4 candidate Eugene Kowalski. 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Like many of you I was disturbed at our luncheon last month in New Smyrna Beach when Fred Costello passionately denied as false several charges which Micheal Waltz' campaign made against him in a mailed flyer.
