Alabama bans smoking on public beach” via The Associated Press — The sugar-white sand in Gulf Shores is Alabama’s most popular half-mile stretch of public beachfront. This area also is undergoing $15 million in renovations and city officials want to keep it looking nice. So, in June, city officials adopted a wide-ranging list of regulations that included an Alabama first: The public beachfront became smoke-free. The ban is part of a national trend as politicians try to keep popular attractions from looking like ashtrays and turning away tourists. In Florida, lawmakers are considering legislation that would implement a wide-ranging ban on smoking at any public beach, empowering law enforcers to cite offenders. “What Florida is doing is not surprising,” said Grant Brown, recreation and cultural affairs director with the city of Gulf Shores, comparing smoking bans on beaches with restrictions to smoking at outdoor athletic stadiums.

ABC7 News at 7 pm Sarasota with Jacqueline Matter took a weak stab at opposing views of State Senator Joe Gruters bill to ban smoking on public beaches by showcasing the far left liberal views of ex-con and ACLU president Michael Barfield. Ex-con Michael Barfield voiced his concern that homeless vagrants would be targeted by the cops for tossing their butts in the sand, Barfield is so full of it, he will use every opportunity he gets from ABC7 News to demonize people in law enforcement and they know it. Cop Hater Michael Barfield is the president of the Sarasota ACLU, he Couldn't Pass a basic Background Check to Flip Burgers at McDonald's. A convicted felon by his own admission and barred from calling himself a lawyer by the Florida Bar Association, Barfield serves as President of the Florida ACLU Sarasota and chair of the Legal Panel of the A.C.L.U.’s Sarasota Chapter.

Two SCFD Paramedics Shot at Responding to Bogus Call on Goodrich Ave in Violent No-Go Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl.


AMBUSH FOR 1ST RESPONDERS: Two SCFD Paramedics Shot at Responding to Bogus Call on Goodrich Ave in Violent No-Go Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl. I am not surprised one bit by the violence in Newtown now turned towards first responders, I am surprised that the shooter used 'Sovereign Citizen Tactics' to get the first responders in his sights using a fake 911 call. It happened just before 4 a.m. Monday on Goodrich Avenue near 29th Street. The Sarasota County Fire Department was initially dispatched to call for a person who had fallen. "Help. I need help...please send help. I fell really hard," the caller said.
AMBUSH FOR 1ST RESPONDERS: TWO BULLET HOLES IN HEAVY GAUGE STEEL DOOR OF SARASOTA FIRE TRUCK, ONE BULLET TO THE LEFT PENETRATED THE STEEL DOOR, ONE BULLET TO THE RIGHT DID NOT PENETRATE DOOR FRAME, IT APPEARS TO HAVE DISINTEGRATED ON IMPACT, POSSIBLY AT LEAST A .40 CALIBER HANDGUN WITH FULL METAL JACKET AMMO.
SARASOTA SHOOTING INVESTIGATION: Detectives are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 2900 block of Goodrich Avenue, Sarasota, at approximately 4am. Officers were dispatched to the area after the Sarasota County Fire Department (SCFD) reported being shot at during a call. SCFD was dispatched to 2932 Goodrich Avenue, Sarasota, for an individual who had fallen. When SCFD arrived, they were told by the resident at the address that they did not call. While returning to their ambulance, an unknown person, last seen wearing a hoodie, fired one shot at the ambulance.

Both paramedics were able to get back into the ambulance and drive away during which time several more shots, approximately 3 to 5, were fired at the ambulance. No one was injured. The unknown subject fled on foot and has not been located at this time. The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Sarasota Police Department at 941-316-1199. MEDIA: Please meet at 29th and Goodrich Avenue. Sarasota Police PIO Genevieve Judge is on scene. Genevieve and SCFD Chief Michael Regnier will speak with members of the media at 8am.

Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl No Snitchin: Travis Combs Murdered & Jabez Spann Kidnapped 7 Months Ago & No One Knows Nuttin? If a kid goes missing like Jabez Spann, no fuss, no muss, no struggle just vanishes without a trace who do you look for, SOMEONE HE KNEW. Teresa Richardson is the aunt of 31-year-old Travis Combs who was murdered on August 28th, 2017, shot to death in a vacant lot in the 1600 block of 22nd St, right next to her house, in the Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl.  Richardson said one of the three people involved in her nephew’s murder took his car after he was shot and left it burned in Manatee County. The perpetrators fired one shot at 31-year-old Combs, whose body was discovered in the grass field on 22nd Street. Combs’ murder has been overshadowed by the case of Jabez Spann, a 14-year-old Sarasota boy who went missing after he reportedly witnessed Combs’ murder and now 7 months later appears to have been kidnapped by Travis Combs killers.

No Snitchin In Newtown From the Mayor of Sarasota to the Pastor in Newtown to the Sex Offender on Who Murdered Travis Combs. Apparently Reginald Parker, a registered sex offender and ex-con, witnessed the murder of Travis Combs by 3 thugs. Supposedly someone got with pastor Kelvin Lumpkin in the Newtown section of Sarasota Fl and revealed additional information about the unsolved murder of Travis Combs whose body was found in an empty lot in the 1600 block of 22nd Street in Newtown. Sarasota cops got wind that the pastor may have vital information about 'the 3 thugs' who killed Travis Combs and who may be involved in the kidnapping of Jabez Spann who apparently witnessed the murder of Travis Combs on August 28th, 2017. But in comes the Mayor of Sarasota Shelli Freeland Eddie who just happens to be an attorney with a law office on Dr Martin Luther King Way in the heart of Newtown. Mayor of Sarasota Shelli Freeland Eddie writes a letter to the State Attorney's office and tells them and the Sarasota Cops that she now represents pastor Kelvin Lumpkin and that he will not be talking to the cops or anyone else, Lumpkin will invoke his “pastoral privilege” and refuse to answer any questions about the murder of Travis Combs which could link to the kidnapping of Jabez Spann, what the hell?  
 
Newtown Teen Jabez Apparently Spann Kidnapped After Witnessing the Murder of Travis Combs on 22nd Street only 453 Feet From His House. It is only 453 feet from the house where Jabez Spann was staying on 23rd Street to the empty lot where Travis Combs was murdered near 22nd Street and Palmadelia Avenue, I walked it on September 26th, 2017 and took surveillance photos of the out in the open drug sales on 22nd Street and published my article, Wednesday, September 27, 2017, Does Murder of Travis Combs Link to Disappearance of Teen Jabez Spann in Newtown Fl. It was observed that there is an unobstructed view from the house on 23rd Street where Jabez Spann was staying to the street corner where Travis Combs was murdered. 

Jabez Spann was named in Reginald Parker’s arrest report. The documents placed Jabez Spann at the scene of the murder. It was the first official acknowledgement that Jabez Spann may have witnessed a murder before he disappeared on September 4th, 2017. According to the report, Reginald Parker told three people that Jabez Spann was outside, along with two others, when Combs was fatally shot by 3 local thugs. The document says that Jabez Spann exclaimed, “Oh my God. Y’all shot him,” after Combs was killed. But according to the report, Parker changed his account once inside the jail. When pressed by detectives, Parker denied telling anyone he saw Travis Combs’ death. Travis Combs wasn’t an angel, Richardson said. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement report showed that the 31-year-old man had been charged with possessing and selling marijuana, a lot of marijuana.
WHO SHOT TRAVIS COMBS: From information that I obtained on my own it has been discovered that Travis Combs was known to pull his vehicle into the empty lot on 22nd Street and sell marijuana from his car. It also became apparent to the 3 local Newtown thugs that Travis Combs would have large amounts of cash on him from the drug sales. Apparently Reginald Parker and Jabez Spann witnessed 3 local Newtown thugs rob and murder Travis Combs for his money.
