A lot of time and attention in schools is focused on the well-known “Three Rs”:  reading, writing and arithmetic.  These are considered the foundations of a basic-skills oriented education program and are seen as the areas of core-competency children must master in order to progress in their education and—ultimately—succeed in life.  However, there is a 4th “R” that is essential to the foundation of a child’s education and development.  An “R” that we often forget or take for granted:  Recess.

Cary Pigman
In a House of Representatives that makes a priority of members behaving ethically, how is it Rep. Cary Pigman gets to come back from a DUI arrest where his dishonor and dishonesty were on full dash-cam display -- and carry on as if nothing happened?

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom Hashoah, we honor the memory of the six million Jews and other political, religious, and social minorities who were murdered in the worst genocide in human history. We take this moment to not only pledge to never let their memory fade, but solemnly rededicate ourselves to never allowing something so evil and heinous to occur again.

Foreign leaders and local interlocutors, aka pundits, might as well take a vacation for the next few minutes until Donald Trump's next foreign policy "strategy" surfaces from deep within his amygdala.

Three months ago, State Trooper Jonathan Otto, 33, of the Arizona Department of Public Safety pulled over a car that had caught his attention by traveling 104 miles per hour long after midnight, just south of Kingman. He smelled marijuana in the car. It was driven by a man with an adult female wearing only lingerie. Their passenger was a female juvenile whose fake document showed her to be 18. She was, Otto says, "not wearing a whole lot of clothing."

William Forrester was on disability, and recently had a lung removed due to cancer. After he was unable to obtain painkillers legally, Forrester forged a prescription for 120 oxycodone pills, which he then filled at a drug store. When he did it again, the pharmacist called the doctor to confirm the authenticity of the prescription. After the doctor told the pharmacist he had not authorized the prescription, Forrester was charged with trafficking 15.6 grams of Oxycodone.

Joe Negron and Frank Artiles

Syrian President Bashar al Assad is being read out of the human race, and the Trump administration seems to have done a 180-degree turn on the necessity for “regime change” in Syria because Assad used horrible, horrible! weapons against civilians, including helpless little babies.

Jim Crow is alive and well and living within the Florida Democratic Party, only this time it isn't where you think it is.

Let's be honest. Rick Scott does hold the cards. He really is the man with "a partner in the White House."
