Florida to resume charging tolls after being suspended for Hurricane Irma

UPDATE - Sept. 19: 

Florida authorities said the state will resume charging tolls on its turnpike and other roads and bridges at 12:01 a.m. Thursday after they were suspended during Hurricane Irma.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott suspended tolls after ordering Floridians to evacuate ahead of the hurricane. Millions of people fled the state. 

Scott wrote on Twitter Monday that tolls would remain suspended as residents and officials “focus on recovery efforts.”

It’s unclear when toll fees will be reinstated, but Scott said he would keep people updated. 

Ohio firefighter resigns after allegedly saying he'd save a dog before a black person

An Ohio firefighter who posted a racially charged comment on social media last week has resigned.

>> Read more trending news

Tyler Roysdon submitted his resignation as a volunteer firefighter in Franklin Township on Monday, according to township officials.

Trustees President Brian Morris confirmed Roysdon’s resignation.

Fire Chief Steve Bishop indefinitely suspended Roysdon on Sept. 12 after learning of the racially charged comment, which had been posted to Facebook.

Roysdon, 20, indicated in the post that if he had to choose between saving a dog or a black man from a burning building that he would save the dog first because “one dog is more important than a million (expletive),” he wrote, using a racial slur.

A disciplinary hearing before the township board of trustees, on a charge of conduct unbecoming a township employee, had been scheduled for Sept. 27. 

Morris said last week that he was unsure, given Roysdon’s comments, whether he was fit to continue as a firefighter.

“He blatantly said on social media that he wouldn’t do that,” Morris said. “Even if you take race out of it, it still would be wrong. I’m disgusted in what he said.

“I want people to realize this is only one man’s comment. We have a great group of men (firefighters) and disgusting comments from one individual does not represent the entire fire department.”

Over the past few days, the presidents of the NAACP branches in Dayton and in Middletown have called for Roysdon’s termination.

Juveniles captured after collision with police, shooting at officer, officials say

Two juveniles were arrested after allegedly stealing a vehicle, crashing into a Jonesboro police officer’s car and later firing shots at that officer.

>> Read more trending news

When the officer spotted the juveniles in the vehicle on Sunday, the duo tried to evade arrest and ended up in a head-on collision with the officer, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The juveniles then got out of the vehicle, started running and fired shots at the officer who was chasing them, authorities said.

At some point, Jonesboro police lost track of the two boys and had to use tracking dogs to pick up their scents.

The dogs led officers to a warehouse where the juveniles were found hiding in the back of a box truck, the sheriff’s office said.

Both juveniles were taken into custody, and officers searching the woods later found the firearm they suspect was used in the incident.

The Jonesboro officer involved in the incident was not injured.

Prince Charles may not live in Buckingham Palace when he is king, report says

A report in The Sunday Times suggests that Prince Charles may not be as fond of Buckingham Palace as his mother is. According to reports, Charles would use the palace as “monarchy HQ” for official business, and allow for it to be open to visitors and tourists for longer than the current three months during the summer.

The Times stated that Charles “doesn’t see [Buckingham Palace] as a ­viable future home or a house that’s fit for purpose in the modern world. He feels its upkeep, both from a cost and environmental perspective, is not sustainable.” The newspaper also claimed that Prince William agrees with his father that the palace is too big and costly for family life.

“What’s to say Buckingham Palace can’t be opened to the public for at least six months, while keeping the state rooms pristine for use during big occasions?” noted one source. “That would be a modern approach and he’ll be thinking along those lines.”

Another insider added, “It makes perfect sense commercially to offset the costs of running such a big place by extending availability to the ticket-buying public.”
