New Bishop of Tallahassee, Florida named
As Bishop William Lori is named Archbishop of Baltimore, an Orlando priest named Rev. Gregory Parkes is named Bishop of Pensacola-Tallahassee, Florida. He replaces Bishop John Ricard who retired in 2011.
The appointment of Bishop Lori is certainly a Home Run for the Holy Father, he was by far aside from the Bishop of Tulsa as one of the most supportive ordinaries towards the the SP when it was first made public back in 2007 and was very vocal as to his own formation in the 1962 Rite.

As per Chancellor Parkes this is obviously a political appointment he was Archbishop Wenski's right hand man in Orlando and its obvious he wants somebody who he can trust in the area.
