Nursing home legislation would put seniors’ privacy, safety at risk | Opinion

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 11:00:00 PST

Recent legislation filed by Florida Sen. Gary Farmer (SB 896) and Rep. Katie Edwards (HB 655) not only ignores nursing home residents’ rights to privacy, but also poses a safety risk for these seniors, as well as the staff who care for them.

American Senior Alliance is a non-profit organization...


Puerto Rico could use more big government  | Opinion

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 09:00:00 PST

You can't blame Ana Rodriguez for feeling bitter.

In her hillside home in Cidra, Puerto Rico, a mountain town south of San Juan, she relies on a generator and doesn't think she'll have electricity for another year - despite Governor Ricardo Rossello's recent promise to have 95 percent of Puerto...


Wholesome Mike Pence is good for Trump administration  | Opinion

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

With abundant displays of general dysfunction and specific allegations of sexual assault and harassment becoming pervasive in Washington, it is worth remembering that there are good examples of decency and leadership that we can point to. Republicans need to look no further than Vice President...

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 05:00:00 PST

With nearly 50 million people suffering from Alzheimer's disease worldwide, it is more important than ever that we find new treatments and hopefully a cure for this devastating illness. With that goal in mind, nearly 2,000 clinical trials related to Alzheimer's disease have been registered on clinicaltrials.go...


Watch out, Florida Constitution changes coming | Editorial

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 12:45:00 PST

The Florida Constitution is far from most people’s minds most of the time, but it deserves everyone’s close attention for the next 12 months.

Every 20 years, a Constitution Revision Commission is convened to review the state’s founding charter and send proposed amendments to voters. That commission...

Congress must clean its mess | Guest editorial

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:30:00 PST

The accounts from his hometown are pretty conclusive. During his early 30s, Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, trolled for young girls. His actions were creepy, possibly criminal.

Moore, a West Point graduate and Vietnam War veteran, became chief justice of the Alabama...


Keep US ban on imports of elephant trophies | Guest Editorial

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:00:00 PST

The sons of President Donald Trump already have a lot of trophies, and soon they won't have to worry about parading out the new ones they have bagged.

The Trump administration is reversing a U.S. ban on importing trophies of elephants killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia, under the guise that fees for...


Helping 'Dreamers' should be first step toward immigration reform | Opinion

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 10:30:00 PST

On Oct. 5, I flew to our nation’s capital to join conservatives and progressives, law enforcement, business and faith communities that met in Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to provide a legislative solution for those young undocumented immigrants — known as the “Dreamers” — many of whom do...

Take that hypertension news with a grain of salt  | Opinion

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 07:30:00 PST

Since worry can increase your blood pressure, it's counterproductive to fret about the alarming headlines declaring that hypertension now affects half of all Americans, including about 80 percent of those over 65. The numbers don't reflect a sudden decline in the public's health; instead, health...


Whatever happened to the presumption of innocence? | Opinion

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 05:35:00 PST

I want to praise Jeremy Piven. That’s a risky thing to do, I know. Piven is one of Those Men. One of those big entertainment figures who has fingers pointed at him. He has joined Harvey Weinstein, James Toback and many others in facing accusations that he abused his power to sexually abuse women.


Draw Broward's political map in full public view | Editorial

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:30:00 PST

Voters should pick their elected leaders, not the other way around. But when drawing boundaries for political offices, politicians often use the power of the pen to loop in communities they expect will support them — or make it harder for rivals to get elected.

The opportunity to redraw political...


Offshore tax havens fuel South Florida real estate boom | Fred Grimm

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 13:05:00 PST

Think of that lovely blue-gray (“waterfall,” Crayola calls this particular hue) super yacht moored on the Intracoastal as our glimpse of paradise.

Or rather Paradise Papers, the trove of 13.4 million documents that, according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, reveal...


No one accused of sexual abuse is irreplaceable — not even Al Franken  | Opinion

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 11:30:00 PST

It's really the picture that does it. Even by the standards of the sexual harassment stories we've heard in recent months, there is something particularly revolting about the sight of Al Franken, now a Democratic senator from Minnesota, reaching for the breasts of a sleeping woman, a naughty grin...


Sneaking in Obamacare sabotage  | Guest editorial

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 10:00:00 PST

Republican Senators remade their tax bill into an Obamacare repeal bill, announcing Tuesday that they inserted an Obamacare sabotage device into the text. In a stroke, they turned a fiscally irresponsible tax plan into a monumentally unwise piece of social policy that would do much more than widen...


Banning sex 'gifts,' selective outrage — another week in Tallahassee | Opinion

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 08:50:00 PST

On the heels of accusations of sexual harassment in the Florida Legislature, Tallahassee has been a city full of indignation and calls for action.

One moment, Politico reported anonymous accusations against state Sen. Jack Latvala. The next, House Speaker Richard Corcoran called for his resignation....


Advice from Seattle to Alabama: Dump Roy Moore | Guest editorial

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

Seattle knows what Alabama is going through all too well.

We're familiar with the awful cloud that descends when a politician's alleged sexual assaults of children emerge ahead of an election.

Having been through this with Ed Murray, Seattle's mayor until September, our advice is to dump Roy Moore,...


Dalai Lama: We need global, secular ethics | Opinion

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 05:30:00 PST

When the president of the United States says “America first,” he is making his voters happy. I can understand that. But from a global perspective, this statement isn't relevant. Everything is interconnected today.

The new reality is that everyone is interdependent with everyone else. The United...


GOP tax plan gets even worse | Editorial

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:15:00 PST

Congressional Republicans proclaim they are serious about tax reform. Their actions, however, show they aren’t.

At first, the tax proposal from Senate Republicans looked a little better than the version from GOP House leaders. On Tuesday, though, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced...


Elderly alcoholism can be prevented; know the signs | Opinion

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:30:00 PST

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are prevalent in our society. This ubiquitous illness can be found in every economic level, every race, every nationality, the young, and the elderly.

Alcohol abusers do not realize the effect alcohol is having on their bodies. If this drinking pattern is not interrupted,...


The T-word: When is an attack terrorism? | Opinion

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 10:00:00 PST

When a gunman opened fire at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the atrocity called to mind the 2015 shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. Despite apparent similarities, these violent incidents were described quite differently. The Associated...


Ugly echo chamber of Hannity, Breitbart is why women wait to report abuse | Opinion 

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 08:25:00 PST

Leigh Corfman mustered her courage.

Although reluctant to go public with what she says happened to her at age 14, at the hands of Roy Moore, she decided it was important to tell her story.

"I have prayed over this," Corfman told The Washington Post.

"All I know is that I can't sit back and let...


Has Jeff Sessions got the world's worst memory, or what?  | Opinion

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 06:45:00 PST

Attorney General Jeff Sessions' defense for apparently misleading Congress about his knowledge of campaign contacts with Russians is that he has a bad memory. No, honestly. The man who now oversees the entire Justice Department might have heard about contacts with Russia, but no alarms went off,...
