Really? What candidate would be stupid enough to jeopardize his or her hard work by taking down their opponents’ signage? The only people taking down political signs are the sign police and private property owners finding signs on their property that they did not authorize.
Biscayne National Park and its managers failed to earn the public’s trust in the development of a highly manipulated General Management Plan worthy of an investigation by the Inspector General’s office. The plan so misleading, Rep. Carlos Curbelo was granted a House Natural Resources Committee Field Hearing in August of 2015 in Homestead to address it.
As a Miami native who grew up fishing in Biscayne Bay, on the local reefs and its offshore waters, I support the Access to Sportfishing Act of 2016, a bill supported by senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio. There is no need to close any section of Biscayne National Park or the local reefs to recreational fishing.
The Grace Jones Daycare cannot thank the Key Colony Beach Fishing and Boating Club for its very, very generous donation of $5,000 to our center. Not only did we receive this enormous donation but our children got to participate for free in their annual Kid's Fishing Derby on the Marathon Lady.
Whether it’s fishing, sightseeing or beach going, South Florida’s economy is fueled by water. Without clean water, or the right balance of salt and fresh water in our estuaries, our waterways would be less desirable and Florida would not be the global tourist destination that it is today.
I just read an article about the deaths from using marijuana. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, last year 17,465 deaths from using hard drugs — heroin, cocaine, crack, PCP, etc.
Congratulations and a deep thank you to the Islamorada Village Council for joining Martin County, Miami-Dade County and taking the lead in Monroe County asking the state of Florida to make meaningful changes in water management policies.
Nowadays, bipartisanship within Congress is about as rare as recreational red snapper fishing in federal waters (zero days in the South Atlantic, 11 days in the Gulf of Mexico). That’s what makes it especially heartening to see Florida’s congressional leaders stepping up to ensure fishing access in one of South Florida’s most popular fishing areas, Biscayne National Park.
As technology advances and cultural norms shift, financial fraud scammers may try new tactics to target victims. As we go about our lives, many of us do not stop to consider how our everyday actions are creating risk.
Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel is seeking re-election to a second four-year term, so it’s natural she, like other candidates in other campaigns, wants to reach as many potential voters as possible. But one way she apparently went about it is obtaining the names and addresses of more than 500 of this year’s Keys high-school graduates.
People calling to vilify the Key West City Commission's Uber decision [continue not allowing it for now] don't understand the issue. Commissioners had to consider potential legal ramifications of Uber's business model of wanting all of the gravy with none of the buy-in, liability or responsibility. In federal court, Uber has faced more lawsuits than any other U.S. start-up valued at $10 billion or more.
The lobster mini-season is less than two months away. We are a nation based on the rule of law. Ideally, our representatives craft laws that protect life, property and opportunity on a basis of equality for all and our government non-judgmentally enforces those laws.
The Florida Keys have water problems, make no mistake about that. Perhaps not to the extent the Treasure Coast has been having with algae blooms — which are eating into tourism — but the prevailing sentiment is that the Keys are closer, not further away, from larger problems.
I’m sure by now everyone in Florida, unless they don’t have acces to the news, is aware of the ecological disaster takin gplace in the St. Lucie River and Caloosahatchie estuary. This entire scenario was preventable.
The Monroe County The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone about the drug disposal program offered at all our county Sheriff's Substations and the reasons why it is important to dispose of medications in the right way.
