IBD! Stories

As we describe in "Our Story," Horatio began as an eclectic site before settling in as the home of the Blue Ocean World podcast. In our earlier years of publishing article content, we recalled a local newscaster who chose one story a week as his "IBD!"--as the one story that made him say, "I'll be damned!" Here are some of our fun IBDs from that era.
