The state investigation into the alleged abuse of marine life off Manatee County in July -- most prominently, a live shark dragged to death behind a speedboat -- was still incomplete Monday afternoon.

Back in the '60s, I missed a chance to cover a story that haunts me to this day.

August 17, 2017 - 6:00am

How did the media get it THAT wrong about Tiger Woods? Literally dozens of news outlets nationwide listed marijuana first as the reason the golfing great was found asleep at the wheel on the side of the road in Palm Beach County in May.

Have I got this right? One of the leading columnists for a newspaper whose market serves the heart of last year's blue-green algae disaster is OK with septic tanks? 

Well, septic tanks apparently would be OK in Sewall's Point if only the town's nearly 2,000 residents weren't behaving exactly like Glades folks portrayed them -- as "wealthy coastal elites."

Waste Management does get what it wants most of the time. But every now and then, every once in a rare occasion, the behemoth garbage hauler feels the jolt of  a protest pushback.

If you followed Thursday's short South Florida Water Management District Governing Board meeting, you got the facts, not the bull, about where the algal blooms in Lake Okeechobee came from.

Well, roll me in corn flour and call me dinner ... Sewall's Point, one of the wealthiest towns in Florida -- the one at the epicenter of blue-green algae on the Treasure Coast -- this week turned down septic-to-sewer conversion.

Maybe some good will come from the heinous acts of animal cruelty against sharks and other creatures, including a pelican, mounted like trophies on social media last week by the fishermen responsible.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Donald Trump gets a break today. Instead of the political paparazzi circling the White House,  they'll be chasing down Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Well, some of them, anyway.

George Sheldon

George Sheldon is already in Miami heading up the private adoption and child services agency, Our Kids. But his departure from Illinois doesn't mean an end to the investigation into the mess the former Illinois Department of Children and Family Services director left behind. It goes on apace.

Waste Management is used to getting its own way.

Frank Brogan

Frank Brogan climbed a very tall career ladder in Florida that took him from classroom teacher to chancellor of the State University System, always by exceeding expectations.

July 18, 2017 - 6:30pm

Environmentalists cry foul when South Florida Water Management District back-pumps floodwater into Lake Okeechobee to spare wildlife and threatened Glades communities.

My favorite candidates lost in the Republican presidential primary, I admit it. And I've never seen a president use his own sense of self-importance to such strategic advantage as President Trump does.

South Miami City Hall and Mayor Philip A. Stoddard
