In secret, behind locked gates, our Nation's Oldest City dumped a landfill in a lake (Old City Reservoir), while emitting sewage in our rivers and salt marsh. Organized citizens exposed and defeated pollution, racism and cronyism. We elected a new Mayor. We're transforming our City -- advanced citizenship. Ask questions. Make disclosures. Demand answers. Be involved. Expect democracy. Report and expose corruption. Smile! Help enact a St. Augustine National Park and Seashore. We shall overcome!

Russian Billionaire paid TRUMP $95 million in Florida deal (MIAMI HERALD)
"Follow the money!"
-- Hal Holbrook as confidential Washington Post source, then called "Deep Thoat" and now known as FBI Associate Director Mark Felt, in "All the President's Men"
Trump lawyers say he had no Russian income -- except for that big deal in Florida
WASHINGTON - The White House on Friday released a letter from President Trump's lawyers asserting he has no income from Russian sources -- except the $95 million he received from the sale of a Palm Beach estate and proceeds from a Miss Universe pagent in Moscow.
"What do I have to do with Russia?” Trump said last summer in Doral. “You know the closest I came to Russia, I bought a house a number of years ago in Palm Beach … for $40 million, and I sold it to a Russian for $100 million.”
The letter released Friday shows Trump acquired the estate in 2005 for $41 million and sold it to Russian billionaire for $95 million.
