Swan Take
Someone certainly ruffled some feathers recently when six cygnets (baby swans) went missing from Lake Eola. Initially,in a post made by City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, the post mentioned that a predator or natural activity would not have resulted in such a large number of swans going missing. The post snowballed with over a thousand shares. Billboards are now reading “RETURN OUR SWANS,” and PETA has even offered a $5,000 reward for the safe return of the little guys. Many walking around Lake Eola for the 2016 AIDS Walk took notice of the one single swan on her empty nest, head cradled under her wing. It’s been noted that the security cameras around the park had not been working, which has resulted in no leads to the animal theft. If anyone has any information to the whereabouts of these six little swans, please contact CrimeLine at 800-423-TIPS.

Real Talk
Stuff just got for REAL for Watermark columnist and local radio personality Sabrina Umbra from Real Radio’s 104.1 FM’s News Junkie, who happily announced she’s not going anywhere.
