Florida Trend restaurant editor Chris Sherman stuck his finger into Key lime pie 20 years ago. He has eaten his way up down and across Florida, tucking into grits, datil peppers, and medianoche sandwiches as well as the dishes of our grandest chefs, young and old. Florida sets a big and constantly changing table, so when you find a great new restaurant or have a grand meal, let Chris know. Ditto for those dinners that don't match the hype. He can't be everywhere... although he'd like to be. Share your thoughts with Chris.

Gov Scott has proposed to increase funding to education, and half of those monies will come from property taxes. The debate is: A) is Scott's proposal a tax? Or, B) is Scott just using new monies that would come in because property values are increasing?

  • A) It's a tax
  • B) It's not a tax - only tapping natural increases in revenue
