Joe's Detailing, Cleaning Up Springfield One Car At A Time

Joe's Detailing, Cleaning Up Springfield One Car At A Time

For more than 20 years Joe Linder, owner and operator of Joe's Detailing And Car Salon, has been doing his part to keep Springfield clean, doing it one car at a time.

Located at the south east corner of 5th and Main Streets, in a 1940 era gas station, Joe's Detailing offers affordable by-hand car washes, both the inside and out, for their customers. They also offer higher priced detailing options for those looking for a more thorough detailed cleaning.

Joe, an avid New England Patriots fan, is glad that Main Street construction has completed, and is thrilled to see his business recovering, though he does feel that the new median hurts his business because south bound traffic on Main Street does not have easy access to his business.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Congresswoman Corrine Brown raised more than $1 million for her 2010 re-election campaign but one agency says she short-changed them.

"Corinne Brown and her campaign committees owe our clients, who raised over half a million dollars for her, approximately $44 thousand," said Martin Lobel, the attorney representing Berger Hirschberg Strategies, a major Democratic fundraising firm.

Both parties agree, the fundraising firm began working for Brown when she was thinking of running for Senate in 2009.

They entered into a contract in July 2009.

Corrine Brown, her Chief of Staff, and Friends of Corrine Brown are now being told to pay up for underpaid and unpaid fees to the tune of $44,495.

"Congresswoman Brown is not obligated to the defendants as they claim," said Brown's attorney, Frederick Cooke, Jr.

FCN Investigates: Still No Answers as Peyton Questioned about Workers' Compensation Probe

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  A decorated firefighter, Rusty Butler spent more than two decades running into burning buildings for the city of Jacksonville.

In 1996, he had to retire. He was diagnosed with heart disease and high blood pressure.

He retired qualifying for Florida's Heart/Lung bill, which mandates that police and firefighters' medical bills related to heart disease and high blood pressure be paid for because the conditions are presumed connected with their jobs.

For seven years, Butler said he had no problems getting heart-related medical bills paid, but something changed in 2003:

The city stopped paying and started denying.
