Good morning! You survived Wednesday. In fact, you burned Wednesday down. Let's celebrate by sifting through the ashes.

A homeless woman was arrested for vandalizing and stealing from graves in a Seffner cemetery. She's apparently not a Satanist or a seriously edgy goth or a combination of those two things, which would be super fun, but suffering from mental illness, which is sad. Our healthcare system is dubious, people.

Red tide is officially here in Pinellas County, and is suspected to have killed all kinds of marine life, including half a dozen dolphins, on its way up the coast. Oh, well, it's not as if our economy is dependent on people coming from a long way away to see and do fun things in and on clean water...

The Largo City Commission voted to commit to achieving 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. Take note: When they say Largo and Pinellas Park are going to be the cool places to live in a couple of years, they're not kidding.

How's this for a Polk County story: A police K-9 named after a Toyota truck caught a guy trying to steal a car from the Toyota dealership that donated the dog to the police. I know, right? It's almost as if there's a underlying order to the universe, and that underlying order just loves to use Florida as its own Comedy Central.

And finally, a Brooksville Beef O'Brady's has canceled its expensive DirectTV sports package to protest what the owners see as the NFL not doing enough to keep players from taking a knee during the National Anthem. Apparently the new national pastime is missing the point.
