Mar-a-Lago backlash may be the way to change Trump | Opinion

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:30:00 PDT

Do white supremacists hold black-tie galas?

Would a neo-Nazi dinner require adding tiki torches beside the pool or do guests bring their own?

These are questions the marketing team at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club may need to answer now that other organizations are dropping plans for...


The problem with piecemeal policymaking | Opinion

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 11:30:00 PDT

Suppose you wanted to sabotage Obamacare and could not get Congress to help. Short of repeal legislation, the next best strategy would be to cut off funds to health insurers — in other words, starve the beast. That should work, right?

Surprisingly not, according to a new report from the Congressional...


Give cities like Delray Beach more on opioid crisis | Randy Schultz

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 08:30:00 PDT

Last month, the FBI charged the ex-owner of a drug treatment center and sober home in Delray Beach with health fraud. The numbers were impressive.

The owner allegedly filed $58 million in bogus insurance claims over nearly five years, many for double testing of urine samples. The scam allegedly...


Mason-Dixon Line symbolic of our ongoing divisions | Opinion

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 07:00:00 PDT

In the 1760s, two English astronomers were tasked with establishing a border between the regions now known as Pennsylvania and Maryland.

The work of Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon created a line — the Mason-Dixon Line — that continues to signify the struggles we have as a society that played...


It's not rocket science: No guns in carry-ons | Editorial

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:15:00 PDT

What is it going to take for people to finally get the message about taking guns in carry-on luggage on flights?

It’s really not that hard to understand. No guns, even unloaded, in carry-ons. They must be unloaded in your checked luggage.

The no-guns-in-carry-ons directive is federal law. The same...

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 21:00:00 PDT

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


Florida education reforms open door to learning opportunities | Opinion

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 11:45:00 PDT

As our children leave behind their summer months and head back to school, we all share a common hope that they will receive a world class education, which will open their minds to new ideas and their future to brighter possibilities. To further that goal, this year the Florida Legislature passed...


Single-payer — dream, nightmare or status quo? | Opinion

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 09:30:00 PDT

The Hindenburg-like failure of congressional Republicans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act has put single-payer health care — the Left’s dream and Right’s nightmare — on the minds of true believers in both camps. To a considerable degree, though, both sides’ hopes and fears are hyperbolic...


Mary McLeod Bethune deserves 'Capitol' recognition | Opinion

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 06:15:00 PDT

The violence resulting from the recent white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., has cast a harsh spotlight on Confederate memorials and re-opened the old, divisive wounds of race and racism.

While local communities across the country brace for demonstrations over the removal of...


Charlottesville, South Florida a lot alike | Opinion

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:35:00 PDT

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – My new home is just 2.5 miles from the spot in downtown Charlottesville where a racist killed Heather Danielle Heyer on Aug. 12. It’s 950 miles north of my old home in South Florida.

Charlottesville might seem far away and very different from Broward and Palm Beach County,...

Has the train wreck reached rock bottom? | Opinion

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 11:30:00 PDT

A couple of months ago, a big deal was made when Donald Trump visited Yad Vashem, the magnificent Holocaust memorial, during a trip to Israel.

Yad Vashem is a stark reminder of unspeakable evil, and what happens when people in power don’t come out forcibly against it. If you get to Israel, you...


Scott sends wrong message with Trump lunch | Opinion

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 09:10:00 PDT

Like the famed animated movie pals, Florida Gov. Rick Scott is proving to be the Buzz to President Donald Trump’s Woody.

No matter what trouble Trump finds himself in, Scott comes along singing the movie’s theme song, “You’ve got a friend in me.”

That was true again Thursday when, despite another...


University research, a new Florida crop | Opinion

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 08:35:00 PDT

Imagine a farmer planting an orange grove, tending to the saplings, managing pests, ensuring the trees are watered adequately over many years; he nurtures the blossoms when they bloom, and waits for the fruit. Then, when the oranges are ripe he lets them fall to the ground and rot rather than take...


Be sure kids' vaccinations are up to date | Opinion

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 07:55:00 PDT

August is in full swing, and kids all across Florida are loading their backpacks and lunchboxes for a new and exciting school year. Palm Beach County classes started last week, and students report to class in Broward on Monday.

One of the most important things parents can “pack” is the reassurance...


Ditching Trump's Mar-a-Lago the right move for Cleveland Clinic | Editorial

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 13:45:00 PDT

The prestigious Cleveland Clinic did the right thing Thursday by dropping plans to hold its annual fundraising ball at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club.

The question is, why did it take so long?

A hospital whose guiding principal is “putting the patient’s needs first” shouldn’t be putting...


Trump should find other statues to support | Opinion

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:45:00 PDT

A growing movement to topple Confederate statues is raising concerns from pigeons, guys named Beauregard and, of course, President Donald Trump.

With the country still sickened by the violence that followed white supremacists and neo-Nazis marching through Charlottesville, Va., more cities are...


Water reforms empowering local communities

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 07:00:00 PDT

Last month in Fort Myers, state water managers joined scientists, environmentalists and representatives from agriculture in developing a plan to reduce excess nutrients flowing into the Caloosahatchee watershed.

Years ago, such a meeting would have been happenstance. But thanks to the comprehensive...


Editorial: UF made right call in denying Spencer's rally

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 11:50:00 PDT

Within the space of a few days, University of Florida president Kent Fuchs approved, then denied, white nationalist Richard Spencer’s petition to take his message of hate to Gainesville.

Fuchs struggled with the dilemma that regularly confronts university administrators these days: When, if ever,...


We must invest in our children

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 08:55:00 PDT

As we debate budgetary priorities nationally, our collective failure to fully fund early learning and high quality after-school programs for all children is not only a disaster for working parents throughout the state of Florida, but fails to wisely invest in our children.

Statistics from independent...


Hollywood shouldn't be renaming streets

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 14:10:00 PDT

There is an effort underway to rename streets originally established by the founders of Hollywood to more generic non-military, non-veteran names. Our community has been shaken by a handful of mostly out of town instigators who are not stakeholders. Unfortunately, several city commissioners and...


Immigration reform needed, but Trump plan falls short

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 11:45:00 PDT

It may not be his intention, but President Trump is making the case for comprehensive immigration reform almost every time he opens his mouth.

His recent embrace of the immigration plan offered by U.S. Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia ignited a debate over a rock-bottom question:...


Nation, state need pols who aim for the middle

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 11:15:00 PDT

Adam Putnam shows why Florida – like the rest of the nation – has at least three political parties.

Not so long ago, Putnam would have been the nearly uncontested Republican candidate for governor in 2018. As agriculture commissioner, he’s held statewide office for eight years. Putnam previously...


If you could do it all over . . .

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 06:40:00 PDT

Easy as it would be, I am not going to pick on the deplorables today.

No, if you voted for Donald Trump, I just want to ask you a serious question.

Would you do it again? If you knew then what you know now, would you make the same choice?

Ask yourself if this is the kind of man you want as the face...


Trump's tepid response worsens Charlottesville tragedy | Editorial

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 13:30:00 PDT

The shocking violence in Charlottesville, Va. was a chance for President Donald Trump to help a nation heal. Instead, he made a domestic tragedy even worse.

After building his presidency on bluster, Trump can’t seem to shift to empathy, even after a woman was mowed down by a car driven through...
