    The Florida Roundup on WLRN, February 3, 2012

    On today's show: Mitt Romney takes Florida after spending $15 million on mostly-negative campaign ads. If this is how it is now, what's in store this fall? Term limits and full-time salaries for county commissioners get a thumbs down from Miami-Dade voters. Occupiers get kicked out of their downtown Miami encampment. What legacy did they leave behind, and will the movement last? Redistricting results in South Florida congressmen playing "musical districts" -- is it all for the purpose of keeping Allen West in DC? And hopes of expanded resort casino gambling passing in Tallahassee this session are dead. Plus, what's the impact on the Everglades ecosystem by the proliferation of pythons and the disappearance of small mammals? Phil Latzman discusses the week that was around our region and state with NPR's Greg Allen, the Miami Herald's Marc Caputo, and Kelley Mitchell of WLRN-Miami Herald News. Listen now.audio Listen now

    The Florida Roundup on WLRN, July 29, 2011

    Listen here to today's show: What could federal government default mean for Floridians? When it comes to the debt ceiling, as some people question whether Rick Scott is living in the real world, he says he'll take time out to read all about it. The saga of West v. Wasserman-Schultz continues in Congress. As Miami-Dade's new mayor takes office, he says, "Reducing the size of government doesn't come cheap." And why the widening gap in wealth between whites and minorities is more dramatic here in South Florida. Phil Latzman discusses the week in news with Dan Ricker of the Watchdog Report, the Miami Herald's Tallahassee bureau chief Mary Ellen Klas, and the Palm Beach Post's John Lantigua.audio Listen now
