    Giselle Juarez threw her second consecutive complete game and Oklahoma won its fifth national championship, beating Florida State 5-1 in the Women's College World Series on Thursday. The Sooners had lacked a dominant pitcher heading into the series but Juarez answered the call, allowing one run on two hits in the decisive Game 3. Oklahoma won Game 2 6-2 behind Juarez, who went 5-0 at the World Series and was named Most Outstanding Player. She allowed four runs in 31 1/3 innings. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Much of the crowd stood when Juarez took the circle in the seventh inning. Fittingly, the final out was a popup into her glove. Teammates mobbed her and "Boomer Sooner" blared over the sound system as the crowd of mostly Oklahoma fans celebrated the win just 25 miles from campus. It wasn't easy for the top-seeded Sooners — they came out of the losers' bracket after dropping a stunner to Odicci Alexander and unseeded James Madison in the tournament's opening game. But Oklahoma beat James Madison twice in the semifinal...

In the letter, Kempinski seethed that the book is a work of “propaganda that pushes an inaccurate and absurd stereotype” of policing in America. “The vast majority of police officers are good, hardworking people,” the letter said. “With that said, police work is not perfect, and police officers are human...
    Florida became the fifth state in 2021 to enact a law prohibiting the private funding of election administration on Thursday after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) signed a comprehensive election integrity bill into law with a clear and enforceable ban on the controversial practice. The Sunshine State joins Georgia, Arizona, Idaho, and Louisiana, all of whom have enacted similar laws this year. The state legislatures in several other states, including Texas, are in the final steps of passing their own legislation banning such private funding of election administration. The language of Florida Senate Bill 90  is now codified in Section 97.0291 of Florida Statutes. It states: No agency or state or local official responsible for conducting elections, including, but not limited to, a supervisor of elections, may solicit, accept, use, or dispose of any donation in the form of money, grants, property, or personal services from an individual or a nongovernmental entity for the purpose of funding election-related expenses or voter education, voter outreach, or registration programs. This section does not prohibit the donation and acceptance of space to be used for a...
    Krishna Boodhoo, 63, lost his job at Riverland Elementary in Fort Lauderdale after the school board approved his termination last month A Florida elementary teacher has been fired for allegedly inappropriately touching seven female students despite prosecutors not bringing charges against him because they say there are too many inconsistencies in the children's statements.  Krishna Boodhoo, 63, lost his job at Riverland Elementary in Fort Lauderdale after the school board approved his termination last month.   The State Attorney's Office had decided in October last year not to prosecute Boodhoo, a fifth grade science teacher, because they believed a conviction was unlikely.  An investigative report that was presented to the school board recommending that Boodhoo be terminated did not mention that prosecutors were not seeking criminal charges, the Sun-Sentinel reports.  Boodhoo, who denies the allegations, is now appealing his firing.  The allegations against Boodhoo, who had worked for the district for 13 years, first surfaced in February last year after a mother reported that the teacher had touched her daughter's breasts in December 2019. Police reports state that the mother had questioned her...

And people are moving to South Florida in droves. Some are taking a temporary retreat during the pandemic, away from the cold weather up North. Others are making a longer term change, and businesses are following by committing to decades-long leases. At Rosemary Square, an outdoor shopping mall situated close to downtown West Palm Beach, a West Elm furniture store and Urban Outfitters are slated to open in the coming months. They'll be joined by a slew of new eateries, including a recently opened, local fast-casual taco shop, the health-driven chain True Food Kitchen, and the hip plant-based restaurant Planta. Lucid Motors, the electric car company known as a Tesla competitor, opened its second South Florida location last month at Rosemary Square, which is operated by New York-based developer Related. It joined Lululemon, Anthropologie, Yeti, Tommy Bahama,...
    President Donald Trump returned to his golf course for a fifth day on Tuesday following two humiliating defeats on Capitol Hill where he suffered his first ever veto over ride and a vast majority of House Republicans rejected his call for $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans. Trump took to Twitter to rage about the blows to his presidency before he headed to the links.  He first called on the Senate to amend the defense bill after the House vetoed it. The upper chamber is scheduled to vote to override Trump's veto today.  The president vetoed the bill because he wanted a repeal of Section 230 - part of the Communications Act that gives tech companies a liability shield from lawsuits against content on their platforms - repealed. It has nothing to do with the defense bill, which funds the Pentagon and gives a pay raise to the troops.  The Senate is expect to follow the House and support the override. The defense bill is considered must-pass legislation and the Pentagon cannot function without it.   President Donald Trump returned to...

Ian Golba has worn the controversial mask to Sunset Park Elementary in Windermere since school started last month. He got in trouble with a teacher this Tuesday, WESH reported. “I wore it and she said it was not appropriate for school,” Ian told the outlet. “I asked her why, and she said, ‘If you really want to know why, go ask the principal.’” CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE The principal told Ian the mask was “inappropriate because it expresses a woman’s body.” Eventually Ian gave in and complied. “[The principal] told me to take it off three times and I asked him why,” the pre-teen said. “He said, ‘just take it off,’ so I took it off and I had to wear a different mask.” His father doesn’t understand the commotion. “He told me it was deemed offensive,” Steve Golba told Fox 35 Orlando. “I told him we go there as a family.

    PHOTO VIA OFFICE OF THE GOVERNORFor the fifth month in a row, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ political committee was largely idle in August amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The committee Friends of Ron DeSantis brought in only $276.18 --- all from interest on a bank account --- during the month and spent $9,098.50 on consulting and accounting services, according to a newly filed finance report.

    PHOTO VIA OFFICE OF THE GOVERNORGov. Ron DeSantis on Friday suggested he will likely extend Florida’s stay-on-evictions while speaking to reporters in Fort Lauderdale. “I will work on the the moratorium,” he said. “I think we probably will continue that as well.” The current moratorium is scheduled to expire on Sep. 1 at 12:01 a.m. If signed, it will be the fifth consecutive extension. The Governor’s remarks bring some relief to the thousands of Floridians who remain financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the state received 100,000 additional unemployment claims last week. In total, 1.9 million claims have been paid in Florida for a sum of $14.22 billion since the onset of the pandemic. The moratorium is intended to suspend evictions or foreclosure for those economically-impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike earlier stays on evictions, however, the current order was signed with a narrower scope of protections for renters and homeowners. It now only limits protections to single-family homeowners and renters who are “adversely affected” by the COVID-19 pandemic. The order defines “adversely affected” as a...
