The architectural styles are a mix of Key West, Mediterranean and Modern. I definitely have my eye on the stunning contemporary […]

The Courts Did Right by this Disabled Veteran

A disabled veteran prevailed in the federal appeals courts this week on a discrimination lawsuit against a Central Florida condominium association.

The dog exceeded the condo association’s allowed weight limit of 25 pounds so the condo […]
