    Global warming? So why am I shivering?

    It’s Tuesday morning, and my fingers are still thawing out from the wind-chill driven cold. And it’s supposed to be colder tonight.

    It’s snowing up north and out west, too.

    So don’t give me any more of this global warming stuff. It’s April, it’s Florida, and it’s not supposed to be like this.

    The Panthers knocked off Williston, 5-0, last Friday night in a thriller in what was billed as the Alachua County Tournament at Gainesville High School.
