Earlier this week, a circuit judge granted a temporary injunction on the redistricting map pushed by Gov. Ron DeSantis because of changes to a North Florida congressional district where voting-rights groups say the ability of Black voters to elect a candidate of their choice would be eliminated.

After two years, the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive run by the National Association of Letter Carriers is back this Saturday. Don't forget to leave your non-perishable food items by your mailbox. Food banks are still in great need.

Weekend plans?
