California regulators may achieve the remarkable feat of making housing in the Golden State even more expensive. All they have to do is pass a mandate that most new homes come with solar panels already installed.
The California Energy Commission is expected to vote today on regulations requiring all new single-family homes, as well as all multi-family buildings of three stories or less, to come pre-fabricated with solar panels. Exceptions would be made for smaller houses and for shade-covered roofs, whose owners could substitute other energy efficiency measures. The rules would take effect in January 2020.
By the commission’s own estimates, this will increase the cost of the average new home by $10,500—in a state where the median home price already stands at r...Read More

(April 6, 2018) – The St. Petersburg Free Clinic has acquired a new location for its Beacon House, which provides safe, supportive and transitional shelter to single, homeless men working toward sober, stable, and independent living.

TAMPA, FL – The shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have ignited a passion for activism that hasn’t been seen since the Vietnam era.
But instead of college students protesting the draft, this time it’s high school students fighting to save their lives.
Sarasota mother and activist Dawn Grimes Honeycutt said activities in support of gay rights, equality for women and other civil rights issues has influenced her daughter, Julianne, a senior at Sarasota High School.
However, she believes the recent school shootings have raised an awareness in her daughter and fellow classmates that had nothing to do with Honeycutt’s influence.
"These students are realizing they have a voice and, together, they can make changes," Honeycutt said.
