On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a ​​new net neutrality regulations. When the new rules are adopted, internet service will be regulated like a public utility, a move that will prevent companies from manipulating internet traffic. It will be a major victory both for President Obama and for a swarm of internet companies that vocally supported net neutrality​—everything from Netflix to Twitter​, to Mozilla, Tumblr, and Etsy. However, when these new rules are adopted, the fight will be far from over. The FCC's ruling is expected to be challenged in courts, and some Republicans have warned that years of costly litigation could lie ahead. Marvin Ammori, a First Amendment lawyer and internet policy expert, explains what this decision means, and what happens next. This is a vital issue to those of us in the outdoor amusement business who have limited access to wifi and the internet. Worth a listen.

Strawberry Festival coaster renamed after complaints

Plant City, FL -- The operators of the midway at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City have changed the name on one of their roller coasters because many could consider it offensive.

Maxine Wise, for example, could not believe the name of the ride – which she and her daughter had just ridden.

"Well, they may as well name it Auschwitz. It is in absolutely poor taste. Completely poor taste," said Wise.

Wise's reference to Auschwitz, a Nazi concentration camp, came…

I'm having a little trouble writing this as Christine and I are going through a situation that most carnival people take in stride while moving from town to town, and what I'm talking about are not police violations, or Department of Transportation inspections, but mechanical problems. Bill Lordy, operator of the Elephant Ear Bakery, is visiting from his…
