Go-to guy for algae bloom solutions is on the case | Opinion

Wed, 1 Mar 2017 10:15:00 PST

Dail Laughinghouse wants to keep CNN from returning to your community to get more pictures of green slime.

He's an algae slayer. And he saw a dragon in the footage of last summer's bloom.

It so happened that the timing of the images coincided with a help-wanted sign at the University of Florida's...

Wed, 1 Mar 2017 07:45:00 PST

Seven years ago, on a beautiful South Florida evening, Keith and Penny Grumer took off with their two dogs for their regular two-and-a-half-mile walk in their Weston Hills community.

Action must match outrage on anti-Semitic threats | Editorial

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:00:00 PST

Voices of outrage are finally being heard about the rising attacks of anti-Semitism in South Florida and elsewhere.

The outrage is needed, but the wave of intimidation against Jewish communities will require more than voices. Action and leadership are needed from the White House on down.



Here's a simple way to determine 'fake news' | Opinion

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 12:45:00 PST

Since we are living in the "post-truth" era, we must understand the definition of "fake news."

Hint: It isn't President Trump's definition.

Like some of his supporters, Trump defines "fake news" as "anything I don't like." Therefore, all stories about, say, dealings between Trump, his campaign...

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:18:00 PST

"If your dog got sick, and marijuana could help him, you'd have it in his food bowl tonight — not tomorrow — tonight."That statement — or a slight variation thereof — was made dozens of times by John Morgan while he campaigned for medical marijuana over the last four years. John is rarely wrong...

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 09:15:00 PST

Republicans belong to the party of personal responsibility. Republicans belong to the party of limited government. Republicans belong to the party that respects constitutional rights. Republicans belong to the party that works for affordable insurance rates. Republicans belong to the party that...


Rebooting the new Trump presidency | Opinion

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 08:55:00 PST

President Trump is off to the rockiest start of any modern president. He faces remarkably well-organized opposition from liberal activists, who refuse to accept the outcome of the election, but his biggest problems are bad management, staffing and questionable strategic decisions at the White House.


In-person — not online — autism training best for police officers | Opinion

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 07:30:00 PST

Marco Rubio, meet your people | Editorial

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 17:16:00 PST

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio should man up and meet face-to-face with the people he was elected to represent.

People want to be heard about the changes taking place in Washington, particularly plans to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act. It's no wonder, since 2.1 million Floridians get health...

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 11:02:00 PST

Take measures to make South Florida schools safer | Opinion

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 08:15:00 PST

Run to the door. Double check that it's locked. Pull the shade down. Turn off the lights. Shove your petrified students into one small corner of the room. And wait.

Wait for reprieve? Wait for the sound of gunshots to ring out down the hallway? You're not sure. The only thing you know is that 10...


Point: ACA repeal threatens America's rural jobs | Opinion

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 05:00:00 PST

In 2014, Adam O'Neal, mayor of tiny Belhaven, North Carolina, made headlines when he walked 273 miles from his town to Washington, D.C. The mayor put on his walking shoes because of the impending closure of the town's only hospital. O'Neal wanted not only to save his own town's hospital but to...


Counterpoint: Repealing Obamacare will create, not kill, jobs | Opinion

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 05:00:00 PST

Obamacare channeled billions of dollars out of the productive economy and diverted it toward a health-services sector that has become even more bloated than it was before 2010.

Last July, Dr. Bob Kocher, a venture capitalist who served as a special assistant to President Obama when the Affordable...


WLRN lesson: Stand up for independent journalism | Opinion

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:15:00 PST

A Florida school board wants to run a local radio station's newsroom.

Why should you care?

You should care, because this incident is about much more than one station and a handful of local politicians looking to expand their control. This is about your ability to get straight, unbiased news reporting...

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 04:45:00 PST

Enterprise Florida — the other side of the incentives | Opinion

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 04:30:00 PST

When I retired to Florida in 2002, the last thing on my mind was starting another company.

Years ago, I founded and built a national pharmaceutical research company starting from a small office above my garage in Wilmington, N.C., so I knew first-hand the challenges in building a startup in this...


President Trump should limit trips to 'Weekend White House' | Editorial

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 13:55:00 PST

Having campaigned as the champion of the working class, it's hard to see how President Donald Trump can justify his weekend jaunts to Mar-a-Lago, trips that cost taxpayers millions and create real hardship in Palm Beach County.

Bathroom ruling is just 'gratuitous cruelty' | Opinion

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 17:25:00 PST

School can be stressful enough for youngsters, what with peer pressure and parental pressure and the constant testing and always wondering about college and what you are going to do with your life.

The stress, I can only imagine, must be 10 times or 100 times greater for a transgender student.


'States rights' just a hypocritical ruse | Opinion

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 13:31:00 PST

In a Libertarian utopia, states would fend for themselves and a practically non-existent federal government would stay out of the way.

In reality, there's never been a truly Libertarian society in world history. And most Republicans aren't really Libertarians. Instead, they pick and choose when...

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:00:00 PST

Have officials really considered guns' cost to society? | Opinion

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 07:15:00 PST

There were five us, ordinary citizens, some of us life-long residents of Fort Lauderdale, and we had had enough. We were sick to death of our elected officials shrugging their shoulders and offering moments of silence for the 32,000 victims of gun violence each year in the U.S., for the families...


President Trump's immigration policies hurt Florida | Editorial

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:00:00 PST

Anyone who wondered whether President Donald Trump would craft an immigration policy that showed a decent regard for compassion, common sense, practicality and facts can stop wondering.

Executive actions are hardly democratic | Opinion

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 14:00:00 PST

In little over a month as President of the United States, Donald Trump has had more than his shares of problems.

The president tried to impose a travel ban to people going to or from seven majority-Muslim countries. His executive action did not mention the word Muslim, but because of pronouncements...
