That's what happens when your local newspaper is a longtime fan of Florida developers who build clearcut forests, fill in wetlands and build houses in swamps and on sandy beaches.

Founded in 1895 by a frontman for HENRY FLAGLER's railroad, the St. Augustine Record, has a checkered past of supporting corruption and racism in St. Johns County.
