Tania Ortega-Cowan

Back in the 1990’s, Stuart teenager Molly Sharkey faced a 6-year battle with leukemia that took her and her family all over the country seeking treatment. Accommodations for the family and others she met along the way was both expensive and stressful. This gave Molly a clear vision of what she wanted to leave behind for people facing the same challenges.

PD:  Her dream was to build a home open to everybody who was going through a medical crisis to keep the families together.

MK: Mike Kanuka and I am the president of the Rotary Club of Vero Beach.

Kanuka explains the moment they knew it was time to go to battle.

Officials at Customs and Border Protection say they have no immediate plans to transport hundreds of detained asylum-seeking migrants to two counties in southern Florida.

The news of plans to send migrants detained at the southern border to Broward and Palm Beach counties first surfaced on Thursday. Local officials said they were told by federal immigration authorities to expect as many as 500 migrants in each county every month.

Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning was sent back to jail Thursday after refusing for a second time to comply with a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.

"Facing jail again, potentially today, doesn't change my stance," Manning told reporters in Alexandria, Va., before U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga said she was in contempt of court.

"I will not cooperate with this or any other grand jury," Manning insisted. "So it doesn't matter what it is or what the case is, I'm just not going to comply or cooperate."
