Lol @ pnordman’s last sentence.  I’ll say!  For almost 30-yrs all we got from 60-miles away was your TV News Channels w/barely any news from our own Podunk Town.  Central FLA (meaning mostly the Big O, Orlando) News was home invasions, carjackings, & murders galore.  Sounded like a scary place! 🙂
(I’m kidding w/you of course, but not about the News!)
