Doctor: My criticism of EpiPens accurate | Opinion

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 14:00:00 PST

I agree with Drs. Lupoli and Baker that epinephrine is the first and best treatment for anaphylaxis, and nothing in my article says otherwise.  I agree also that diphenhydramine (Benadryl®) is not indicated for anaphylaxis — but neither is epinephrine indicated for a mild allergic reaction. That’s...


Deviating from epinephrine could be a tragic choice | Opinion

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 14:26:00 PST

The Dec. 1 opinion by Adriane Fugh-Berman ("EpiPens are oversold and overused") promotes so many dangerous misconceptions that we at Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) feel compelled to respond. In particular, it provides no credible support for its main premise that epinephrine is overprescribed...


Focus on real culprits in EpiPen debate | Opinion

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 14:25:00 PST

The death of Oakley Debbs, a 11-year-old West Palm Beach boy who passed away last month, is a tragic event. It is possible — although not definite — that immediate treatment with epinephrine might have saved his life.

Asthma in conjunction with nut allergy certainly warrants having an epinephrine...


Obama still more popular than Trump | Opinion

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 05:39:00 PST

If you listen to Donald Trump’s version of modern history, he has one of the largest mandates for an incoming president and was elected to undo many of his predecessor’s pet projects. 

It’s simply not true. 

The mandate part is a joke. Not only does Trump trail Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton...


Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is dead, so celebrate we will | Opinion

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 07:10:00 PST

Long-time friend and community leader Mario Cartaya had an opinion piece published on Fidel Castro's passing and the impact on Cuba going forward. No doubt that Mario earnestly and honestly authored that piece with belief and conviction in his message. Yet I was struck by some of the phrasing which...


South Florida 100 Forum December 11

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 13:42:00 PST

South Florida's most influential people weigh in on current events. Read their thoughts on the biggest stories of the week and see what they think will make headlines next week. Dale Holness, commissioner, Broward County Last week: Between the death of Fidel Castro and the ambush firing of Pauline...(image)

When it comes to youth organizations, keep eyes wide open | Opinion

Thu, 8 Dec 2016 12:45:00 PST

I'm very sad to say, but it was only a matter of time. The stories are different, but somehow always the same: a well-loved, well-trusted, talented individual infiltrates a youth-serving organization to gain access to children, and successfully victimizes, abuses, and shames kids into silence,...


Civil citations good alternative to juvenile arrests | Editorial

Thu, 8 Dec 2016 12:32:00 PST

When Joe Negron delivered his inaugural speech as Florida Senate president last month, the Stuart Republican told listeners how he and a friend made some mischief with political campaign signs. An officer called Negron's home and said the boys would be picked up if they did not quickly clean up...


President Obama 'walks the walk' on deportation policy | Opinion

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 17:21:00 PST

Undocumented immigrants are very scared that President-elect Donald Trump will deport hundreds of thousands — if not millions — currently in the United States without proper papers.

What few in the media have bothered to tell Americans is that there was a time when President Barack Obama has often...


Welcome news on proposed fracking ban | Editorial

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 17:21:00 PST

People who support fracking for oil and gas in Florida will tell you the process doesn't threaten our water supply because the concrete-encased wells go so deep — about two miles — that they bypass the aquifer from which Florida draws its water.

Three things they don't tell you:

• Fracking causes...


On helping the economy, Trump is the apprentice | Opinion

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 07:37:00 PST

Donald Trump's "Thank You Tour" should include a stop in the Oval Office — before Jan. 20.

After Mike Pence found $7 million to keep Carrier from moving about 1,000 jobs from Indiana to Mexico, Trump did what he does best — claim credit and use money from other people, in this case the taxpayers...


Lasting lessons of Pearl Harbor | Editorial

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 13:50:00 PST

For a lot of Americans, Pearl Harbor is another long-ago date in the history book, like the Battle of Bunker Hill or Gettysburg.

Few people have a clear memory of what happened on Dec. 7, 1941. Fewer still can tell us first-hand what happened when the American naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked...


One war, three friends, and a legacy of service

Wed, 7 Dec 2016 07:56:00 PST

My husband is 95 years old and is in ill health. He is no longer able to tell his story firsthand. Therefore, I am telling it for him exactly as it was told to me.

My husband, Ira Ehrensall, and his friends Alan Jacobs and Charles Neufeld, all graduated from Brooklyn College in June 1940. They...


Obama should pardon Clinton, Petraeus and maybe Trump | Opinion

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 13:45:00 PST

As Barack Obama's time in office winds down, the urgency of those seeking presidential clemency for themselves or others cranks up. Some of the possible beneficiaries have fascinating political implications — Hillary Clinton and David Petraeus, for example.

In the case of accused deserter Bowe...


EpiPens necessary to treat life-threatening allergy symptoms | Opinion

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 09:27:00 PST

As members of the Florida Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Society (FAAIS), we would like to respond to the opinion article, “EpiPens are oversold and overused.”

The main assertion of the piece is that self-injectable epinephrine devices (autoinjectors)  are overprescribed and overutilized for food...


Trim taxpayer support for Visit Florida | Editorial

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 13:55:00 PST

New Florida Senate President Joe Negron, sworn in this month for a two-year term, wants to direct more public dollars to higher education and environmental protection. Both are worthy areas for investments that could strengthen Florida's economy and spare it from higher expenses in the future.


Trump must prepare for showdown with China | Opinion

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 12:24:00 PST

Donald Trump faces immediate challenges—managing the war against ISIS, fixing Obamacare and boosting growth to create jobs. However, as the fallout from his recent conversation with the president of Taiwan indicates, an increasingly assertive China poses the most vexing and far reaching challenges...


How the RNC's ground game made Florida red again | Opinion

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 19:54:00 PST

Florida was always going to be a hotbed for politics in 2016.

A growing and diverse population and a history of deciding the presidential election all contribute to making Florida ground zero for politicos from D.C. to Tallahassee. But 2016 also had an X factor the pundits and analysts weren't...


Trying to make sense of how voters decide | Opinion

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 19:53:00 PST

This presidential election has been mentally and emotionally exhausting. I've had to turn off cable news to regain my sanity.

The news coverage focused almost solely on the horse race — incessantly going over the polls and charting the various scenarios on the electoral map. Very little coverage...


Broward Health should reconsider troubled firing of its interim CEO | Editorial

Sat, 3 Dec 2016 14:15:00 PST

From the moment you stepped foot in the Broward Health boardroom on Thursday, you knew something was up. The normally chatty crowd was huddled, heads-down and hush-hush. The bare-bones agenda had a last-minute update: "code of conduct." And when interim CEO Pauline Grant walked in alone, you felt...


Florida lawmakers showing a familiar attitude | Opinion

Sat, 3 Dec 2016 15:22:00 PST

For want of a better name, let's just call it the Trump-ization of the Florida Legislature.

Yes, folks, if you didn't get enough hate and fear mongering during the campaign, you can get more if you just take a peek at what might happen in Tallahassee in the coming months.

You say you need more...

Florida power companies can't stunt solar growth any longer | Opinion

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 14:44:00 PST

Floridians struck a surprising blow to the utility companies last month, rejecting a farce of an amendment that masqueraded as pro-solar.

We're already seeing the benefits.

On Thursday, Elon Musk's solar energy company SolarCity announced a large Florida expansion. It will grow its presence in...


Another pistol-packing agenda in Tallahassee | Editorial

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 17:23:00 PST

It's not as if Florida is in desperate need of more laws that let people carry guns in more places.

But that's what we're seeing in the opening volley of bills for the legislative session that begins in March. Why? Because certain gun-loving legislators believe the biggest issues facing Floridians...


State Legislature should reconsider open-carry and the violence it may trigger | Opinion

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 17:26:00 PST

Florida is poised to become a more gun-friendly state next year, a notion that sends chills down my spine. Proposed legislation would allow concealed-weapon permit holders to openly carry firearms in public spaces, including airports and college campuses.

It's almost too easy to imagine the horrific...
