On Nov. 8, the South Florida Water Management District (District) Governing Board approved a land lease directed by state law.

During the first full week in October, public power electric utilities across the United States join to celebrate Public Power Week. It is typically filled with events and activities that help customers and stakeholders learn about the benefits of being part of a public power community. This year, Public Power Week took on a whole new meaning as Hurricane Michael -- just 2 mph shy of a Category 5 storm -- barreled toward Florida’s Panhandle.

Following the midterm elections, Florida’s senatorial result and the Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives means there are questions in the balance for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Not only did the most prominent -- though not the most politically adept -- “space politician” end up losing, but so did some prominent fixtures on committees overseeing budgets that directly concern NASA.

Now that the elections are behind us, it is time for the Legislature to address the fraud that has increasingly pushed homeowner insurance rates higher each year. Florida is the nation’s top “judicial hellhole,” according to the American Tort Reform Foundation, and Assignment of Benefits (AOB) abuse is playing a big role in the dysfunction.

Bill Nelson
To the surprise of many following the debacle of the machine counts, the state-mandated hand counting of ballots went relatively well. By the weekend the process was completed in near-competent fashion and the races were declared over. Though he did concede in private with winner Rick Scott, departing Sen. Bill Nelson also gave a farewell video message.

I find the vilification of nationalism to be appalling. It is being depicted as some sort of Fascist, racist, unpatriotic institution. The reality is, nothing could be further from the truth.

On Oct. 14 a bulldozer crew cleared 560 acres on the reservoir site
You have to hand it to Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg.  The man knows how to work a con. He could play Harold Hill in “The Music Man” without anyone ever seeing the band uniforms.
