Retain state regulation of hospitals | Editorial

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 14:00:00 PST

Allow hospitals to open wherever they want and the free market will take it from there. Competition will drive down prices and drive up quality.

That is the tempting argument behind bills in the Florida Legislature that would eliminate the need for hospitals and other health facilities to obtain...


‘Stand your ground’ damage clear in Corey Jones shooting case | Randy Schultz

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 12:30:00 PST

You knew it was coming.

You knew, with Palm Beach County prosecutors having presented so much evidence undercutting the ex-police officer who killed Corey Jones, that Nouman Raja would fall back on the National Rifle Association’s gift to Florida: "stand your ground."

It happened last week. Raja...


Watch out, racists. Your time's up, too | Opinion

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 11:00:00 PST

It has been entire year since President Donald Trump took the oath of office, but from where I'm sitting, not much has changed since the day he descended that escalator in Trump Tower and called Mexican immigrants criminals.

Then as now, Americans are locked in a contentious debate over race —...


We're trying to build democracy in Syria. So why is Turkey attacking us?  | Opinion

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 09:30:00 PST

Three months ago, I was sitting in my office with my colleagues, celebrating the liberation of Raqqa from the Islamic State. The Islamic State's fighters were vanquished by our own Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), with the help of our American allies. We had great hopes that day: Eliminating the...

CRC Proposal 95: Bad for business, bad for cities, and bad for citizens | Opinion

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 08:00:00 PST

“The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced,” quipped Frank Zappa. While it’s usually a bad idea to seek political wisdom from rock stars, certain politicians in the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) — a committee that meets every 20 years to propose changes...


Government deal leaves an opening for Trump's leadership on immigration | Guest editorial

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 06:30:00 PST

Congress moved back from the brink of total dysfunction Monday when the Senate voted to end the Democratic filibuster blocking a House-approved bill to continue funding for the government. A vote to approve the temporary funding bill was expected to easily pass later in the afternoon.

The welcome...


Korean unity at Olympics: Is it for real? | Guest editorial

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:40:00 PST

Have the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games turned into the Pyongyang Games? Hardly.

But North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has seized the Olympic spotlight, with the agreement that athletes from both sides of the demilitarized zone will march under a unified flag during opening ceremonies at the Winter...


Florida lawmakers, stop eroding home rule | Guest editorial

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 13:00:00 PST

One of the more appealing aspects of living in Florida is that it is such a diverse state, geographically and culturally. The Panhandle has little in common with Central Florida, which is quite different from South Florida. The old saying about the Sunshine State — “The farther south you go, the...


Bipartisan failure to blame for government shutdown | Opinion

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 11:25:00 PST

Looking on the bright side of the latest attempt to break our democracy, at least the government shutdown produced bipartisan buffoonery.

Democrats and Republicans alike collaborated to show an inability to compromise in the face of a deadline.

Both parties proved they are willing to employ unbending...


Step up the search for a 'universal' flu vaccine | Opinion

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 11:05:00 PST

Seasonal influenza — the flu — sickens and kills many Americans in a good year, and this is already a bad one. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, since 2010, flu has annually caused “between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses, between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations...


The 'shock of the real': Trump should visit the national parks | Opinion

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 09:30:00 PST

The population of the United States in 2016 was an estimated 323 million, and the number of National Park System visitors was more than 330 million. So I'll venture that most of us have a favorite national park moment.

I have lots. Standing atop Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park with a...


Yes, your ancestors probably did come here legally. Here's why. | Opinion

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:30:00 PST

When Nathalie Gumpertz arrived in New York in 1858, she was 22, single and ready to build a life in her new country. Without thinking twice about her legal status, she got off the boat, made her way to the Lower East Side (then known as Klein Deutschland, or “Little Germany,” due to the preponderance...


How to get the Trump corporate giveaway back ,  and put it to work for Florida | Opinion

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 06:00:00 PST

The Trump tax scam will put literally billions of dollars in the coffers of our richest corporations, money that would otherwise protect Social Security and Medicare, and pay for roads and bridges. But we can get that money back — and put it where it matters most. And it can happen next year —...


A year in, Trump distracts while his appointees sledgehammer the government | Guest editorial

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 11:30:00 PST

With nearly every utterance, Donald Trump affirms the conclusion we reached two years ago that he is temperamentally and intellectually unfit to serve as president of the United States. But there he is, a year after his inauguration, waging a war of words with the world from behind the Resolute...


Mr. President, don't betray your base  | Opinion

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 08:00:00 PST

President Donald Trump faces a defining moment as he considers what to do about the DACA mess and the wall along the southern border that was the central promise of his campaign. Will the president make good on his repeated vows to establish a pro-citizen, pro-worker immigration policy — including...


Deaths show need to bolster Brightline's safety push | Editorial

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 12:00:00 PST

For as exciting as it is, the inaugural week of Brightline’s go-fast train generated headlines as bad as they get.

— Brightline train kills woman during VIP ride

— Brightline kills second person in a week

— Fledgling AAF/Brightline Claims a Fourth Life

The shame of it is, the people who died —...

Trump’s Stalin-like attacks on media chart dangerous path | Jeff Flake

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 14:45:00 PST

After President Trump promised to deliver “Fake News Awards” this week, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona took to the Senate floor to call out the dangers of the president’s repeated attacks on the media. His message is important. So today, we wanted you to see what he said.

Mr. President,...


We don't need new train-safety measures; obey the rules | Letters

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 13:30:00 PST

I read with interest the fact that Sen. Bill Nelson wrote a letter to U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao asking if enough had been done to boost safety at the railroad crossings after two deaths, and stating it was a "critical safety issue." I beg to differ with him. It's a issue of common...


Don't boycott the State of the Union speech — kill it once and for all | Opinion

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 12:00:00 PST

It makes me ill just imagining President Donald Trump at the upcoming State of the Union speech, preening, bloviating and bashing his enemies from the well of the U.S. House of Representatives, interrupted only by obsequious sustained applause from his partisan enablers.

I won’t watch. I’ll go...


Comprehensive energy policy helps all Floridians | Opinion

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 10:30:00 PST

Hit with unseasonably — and in some cases, record-cold — temperatures in recent weeks, Florida’s still insufficient energy infrastructure has again been brought into full view by Mother Nature, much like it was last year when Hurricane Irma triggered fuel storages and families and businesses struggled...


How federal policy could help water and wastewater utilities | Opinion

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 09:00:00 PST

President Trump has announced his intent to unveil an infrastructure initiative this month. Although details are lacking, the initiative is expected to include $200 billion of federal spending spread over 10 years, policies intended to leverage $800 billion in new investment by the private sector,...


U.S. travel industry has a foreign tourism problem | Opinion

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:30:00 PST

As more international travelers decide to skip America, 10 business associations including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Restaurant Association have created a travel industry group aimed at reversing the growing unpopularity of the U.S. as a vacation destination.

Historically, America...


The vanishing Obama presidency | Opinion

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 06:00:00 PST

One year ago, Barack Obama's presidency came to an end. His election as the nation's first black president was a major accomplishment for him and for the nation. Time will never erase that achievement.

But as time passes, this may be just about his only lasting political accomplishment; his legislative,...
