A recent study found black women are underrepresented at all levels of politics — federal, state and local government.
Rutgers Center for American Women and Politics and Higher Heights for America, a national nonprofit that seeks to elevate the voice of black women in politics, conducted the study.

You can’t just tear down a house in Key West’s Historic District. Even if it’s in pretty bad shape. That’s why people were so surprised when the city -- which normally enforces the preservation rules -- came up with a list of five houses in Old Town that could be torn down.

Mental health issues are almost twice as prevalent among Medicaid recipients than in the general population.
