This week, school board chair Bob Gause decided to follow board attorney Jim Dye’s advice and not hold a special meeting to answer items in a presentation by internal auditors and staff legal counsel to its audit committee.

On Friday, the Obama administration announced the first major federal regulations on the practice of hydraulic fracturing, a controversial method of extracting oil and gas that has dramatically increased American energy output.

On Tuesday, Governor Scott and the cabinet will consider a Recommended Order issued by the Division of Administrative Hearings in the matter of Katie Pierola and Greg Geraldson v.
