Changes needed to prevent airport chaos again | Editorial

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 15:05:00 PDT

Communication failures — aggravated by false reports of more gunfire — led to the panic and prolonged chaos that enveloped Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Jan. 6 after five people were killed and six wounded at Terminal 2 baggage claim.

Though the lone gunman was subdued 90 seconds...


Scholarship criterion isn't Florida's 'Best and Brightest' idea | Opinion

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 12:55:00 PDT

A recent Miami Herald article describing how Miami ranks near the bottom — 47 out of 50 — of all major U.S. cities when it comes to housing affordability for teachers suddenly gives teacher compensation a bigger, real-world, dollars-and-cents significance.

While the state's Legislature prepares...


Broward should allow taxi companies to reduce rates | Opinion

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 09:27:00 PDT

Few of us are weeping over the demise of the taxi industry. For years, companies like Yellow Cab had a monopoly over the public and responded with subpar service. 

But I do sympathize with taxi drivers who spent years paying off loans for medallions that are becoming worthless. Transportation network...


At Capitol Hill 'joint session,' prayers go unanswered | Opinion

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 09:18:00 PDT

 It was a tokin' gesture.

Marijuana users are feeling a bit paranoid about Attorney General Jeff Sessions' threats to crack down on states (and the District of Columbia) that have legalized marijuana. So on Monday, at "high noon," activists gathered on the Capitol lawn for what they called a "joint...


Editorial cartoons from around the country

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 21:00:00 PDT

Take a look at what cartoonists from around the country are saying about current issues and events.


Delta's new gun policy not enough | Opinion

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 08:00:00 PDT

Give Delta credit for going where other airlines won't — setting new policy that keeps guns away from the baggage carousel

Unfortunately it's not enough. 

In the wake of the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting, Delta has quietly revised its policy to require passengers to pick up their checked guns...


Forest Service works 24/7 to protect tinderbox Florida | Opinion

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 06:45:00 PDT

In every corner of our state, severe drought conditions have made Florida a tinderbox. Roughly 100 wildfires are currently burning about 75,000 acres, and our Florida Forest Service wildland firefighters are working side-by-side with partnering agencies to battle these fires and protect life, property...


Too many agendas, too little competence | Editorial

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 14:50:00 PDT

Tallahassee is getting way too much like Washington. In both places, there's too much breakdown and too much talk of shutdown. Can anybody actually govern?

As of Tuesday, budget negotiations in the Florida Legislature supposedly had resumed. For the session to end on time a week from Friday, the...


Uber ignored Florida's rules, may get break from Legislature

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 14:00:00 PDT

Uber asks forgiveness, not permission. The Florida Legislature wants to give both.

Legislation that would set statewide rules for so-called transportation network companies — Uber, Lyft and any competitors — passed the House and Senate with just one dissenting vote. Gov. Rick Scott likely will...


Jeffrey Loria makes out like bandit in reported Miami Marlins sale | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 12:08:00 PDT

South Florida sports fans are rejoicing now that Miami Marlins owner/con man Jeffrey Loria is reportedly selling the team to an investor group led by Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter. 

But after Loria screwed over Miami-Dade County taxpayers, it hurts to see him make out like a bandit. 

The Miami Herald...


Scorecard — America after 100 days of Trump | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 11:35:00 PDT

It may be news to Donald Trump that the original One Hundred Days ended with Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo. In fact, if Trump learned about Napoleon from “Fox & Friends,” he would probably snarl, “I like my conquerors of Europe not to end up exiled to an island so remote you can’t even build a...


Why health savings accounts are a retirement tool Floridians need | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 10:00:00 PDT

The number of U.S.-based employers that offer high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) — a health insurance plan with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional plan — has risen sharply over the past few years.

According to the Healthcare Trends Institute, 53 percent of employers now...


A confederate and a semi-successful inventor? Florida needs new statues | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:59:00 PDT

There's bipartisan consensus that Florida needs to replace its statue of Confederate general Edmund Kirby Smith in the U.S. Capitol — even those sympathetic to Confederate history recognize that Smith barely lived in Florida and is not one of our state's most noble leaders. 

But while we're at...


Vladimir Putin, world's most powerful leader | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:18:00 PDT

Donald Trump is president of the United States, but unlike his recent predecessors he's not the world's most powerful leader. 

That title belongs to Vladimir Putin, who is continuing to meddle in international elections as he attempts to create a new alliance that's sympathetic to Russia's needs.


Accepting climate change first step to protecting Florida land | Opinion

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:05:00 PDT

In the administration in Washington, D.C., it was announced that the Energy Department may no longer use the term "climate change." The governor of Florida has kept the state's Department of Environmental Resources from using the term "climate change." So how do we plan for the eventual risks of...


A+ idea: Advance legislation to reform school testing | Editorial

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 14:36:00 PDT

It can be maddening to watch the Florida Legislature waste so much time and energy bickering over issues like the sliver of the state budget dedicated to economic development when more fundamental and far-reaching concerns deserve more attention. But legislators, to their credit, are on the verge...


Holocaust remembrance reaches beyond just one day | Opinion

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 11:00:00 PDT

On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we the children of survivors are reminded that this day, for our beloved parents, the survivors of the Holocaust, is more than a remembrance of the devastation and despair.

Today is more than a remembrance of the apathy and indifference, more than a remembrance...


Want to prevent child abuse? Start with strengthening families | Opinion

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 09:35:00 PDT

Parenting is an awesome responsibility and a tremendous privilege. It's rewarding to watch our children learn, grow and thrive. Most parents work hard to give their children the best opportunities and ensure they feel safe and loved.

But parenting can be a tough job, even under the best of circumstances....


I voted for Trump. I feel betrayed | Opinion

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 08:16:00 PDT

I voted for Donald Trump because he promised to pursue a new foreign policy. As he said in December, “We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments. Our goal is stability, not chaos, because we want to rebuild our country.” He vowed to appoint those with “new approaches, and...


Evidence of the Holocaust is something I will never forget | Opinion

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 03:55:00 PDT

Look around. Holocaust survivors are leaving us. It's a fact that'll be stated and restated today, Holocaust Remembrance Day. Thankfully survivors are dying after years of long life — not in the grip of unimaginable terror. And thanks to the efforts of Rositta Kenigsberg and others like her, we...


American Dream Miami — poster child for growth at any cost | Editorial

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 12:00:00 PDT

The numbers alone tax the imagination: 3.5 million square feet of retail, 1.5 million square feet of entertainment venues, 70,000 auto trips a day, 30 million visitors a year, 14,000 employees, a 2,000-room hotel — and all of it less than two miles south of the Broward line.

Miami-Dade policymakers...

As White House rolls back climate rules, Congress must step in | Opinion

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 03:45:00 PDT

Earth Day arrives this year with serious questions about America's commitment to preserve the environment and limit the risks posed by climate change. That's because on March 28, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to dismantle the Clean Power Plan (CPP) and other Obama-era initiatives...


Stein: Johnny wants to read? Heavens, no | Opinion

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 03:45:00 PDT

When Little Stein was truly little and not at college eating into my retirement fund, I used to enjoy reading to him just about every night.

We read stuff like "Treasure Island" and "Tom Sawyer," and those were great. But one of our favorite things was the "Captain Underpants" series.

If you have...


Walt Disney not best choice for Florida statue | Editorial

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 13:30:00 PDT

In the Florida House, Republican Rep. Jose Felix Diaz of Miami wants to replace one of the state's two statues in the U.S. Capitol with a likeness of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the journalist and environmentalist whose 1947 book, River of Grass, called to light the damage being done by draining...
