Rich Nugent, Congressman For West Central Florida, Will Retire

Washington (AP) -- A Florida Republican congressman who clashed with former House Speaker John Boehner said Monday that he will not run for re-election next year.

Rep. Rich Nugent, a Republican whose 11th district covers Hernando, Citrus, Sumter and part of Marion counties, says the job has forced him to spend too much time away from his family.

Nugent had been a member of the House Rules Committee.  But in January, he was among 25 rebellious conservative Republicans who voted against re-electing Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker.  Soon after that vote, Nugent was removed from the Rules panel, a committee over which the speaker had strong sway in picking members.

Also removed from that panel was Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., for whom Nugent had voted and who voted for himself for speaker.

Boehner retired from Congress last week, under fire from a band of House conservatives who considered him too autocratic and too willing to reach compromises with President Barack Obama.

Nugent, 64, is in his fifth year in Congress.

His Gulf Coast Florida district is considered safely Republican in next November's elections.  Nugent received two-thirds of the vote in 2014, and in 2012, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney received 59 percent of its vote against Obama.  The district includes The Villages.

"We care deeply about shrinking the size and scope of governent," Nugent said in a statement announcing his decision.  "We care deeply about restoring America's place in the world.  We'll get somebody new, somebody with real fire in the belly who shares our beliefs and is ready to give it a shot in Washington."

Man who landed gyrocopter outside Capitol will plead guilty

Doug Hughes was arrested in April.  He was carrying letters for each
member of Congress to raise awareness about the influence of big money in politics.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A man who flew a gyrocopter through some of America's most restricted airspace before landing outside the U.S. Capitol earlier this year will plead guilty to a felony in connection with the incident, his lawyer says.

Attorney Mark Goldstone said in an email Thursday that his client Douglas Hughes is expected to plead guilty to operating a gyrocopter without a license, a felony, on Nov. 20 in federal court in Washington.

Goldstone says Hughes faces three years in prison, but the government and Hughes' defense lawyer agreed that sentencing guidelines don't apply.

Man hit by car in dispute about roundabout in The Villages

November 3, 2015

Sumter County, FL - A man said a dispute over a roundabout in The Villages ended when he was almost run over.

Video of the incident shows a man almost knocked to the ground when he approached the driver of a white SUV, who then hit the gas.

The driver told Channel 9 the incident was blown out of proportion.
Sumter County deputies said the incident began at a roundabout at Hillsbourgh Trail and Buena Vista Boulevard.

The victim claims Kenneth Kardashian was going too fast and almost rear-ended his car.

The victim said afterward, Kardashian was screaming at him and giving him the finger.

Both drivers pulled over at a nearby gate and started to argue.

The victim said he went over to the suspect’s car to explain how roundabouts work.

That was when Kardashian started to drive away and nearly hit the victim.
Minutes later, as the victim was walking back to his car, he was hit as Kardashian was driving away.

“It’s terrible. We live in a resort. You aren’t supposed to act that way,” said resident Rita Poole.

After being hit, the victim is seen on the video leaning against his car and holding his arm as though he's in pain.

Cameras captured who was behind the wheel of the SUV and Kardashian was arrested.

“I have no comment other than it, yes, it’s completely blown out of proportion,” said Kardashian.

Despite what the suspect said, the victim believes the suspect purposely struck him.

"I'm Leaving It Up to You" is a song first put out by Don & Dewey in 1957 and written by Donald Harris and Dewey Terry, the members of that duo. It was popularized by Dale and Grace, with Jay Chevalier, and became a No. 1 hit for them in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in late 1963. It was the first time a duet succeeded another duet at the top spot.
