The last four Scott-appointed Governing Board members had come to Thursday's South Florida Water Management District meeting with something to say. And boy, did they say it.

After the public shaming to shoo out the old South Florida Water Management District board members as fast as they could, you'd think the new Administration would have been Johnny-on-the-spot getti

A couple of high school buddies -- one white, one black -- dress up as each other in stereotypical attire for homecoming. They're immature, inappropriate showoffs looking for a laugh.

Ever wonder where "assignment of benefits" abuse came from?

Ever since the horrific congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Congressman Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika -- and came moments

You knew Gov. Ron DeSantis' thank-you paybacks were coming.

You can take it to the bank: A constitutional amendment for a $15-an-hour minimum wage will be on the 2020 ballot in Florida. As John Morgan said Tuesday in his announcement, “One good thing is, I understand how to do this."

Conservative Carlos Muñiz is Gov. Ron DeSantis' third and final choice to replace the three justices who have mandatorily retired on the Florida Supreme Court.

DeSantis, with Lt. Gov Jeanette Nuñez and the Muñiz family at his side, made the announcement during a Tuesday morning press conference on the doorstep of the Governor's Mansion.

In his remarks, DeSantis said, “The court is going to apply the law as written. You may not agree with every decision, but (the justices) are not going to go off on a major tangent. I think that is very good for us. I think that the separation of powers will be strengthened with the newly constituted court.”

“The role of a judge is to preserve the Constitution, not to add to it or subtract from it,” Muniz said. “I believe strongly in judicial independence, but judges have to earn that independence through their fidelity to the Constitution.”

A week ago, a bitter Janet Hazelit, a one-time employee in the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office, appeared on a local TV station in South Florida calling the removal of former Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes "a race thing. ..."

In an ironic twist, in the same city where Gov. Ron DeSantis rolled out his no-holds-barred environmental statement last week,  another multimillion-dollar water-contamination crisis has reared its ugly head.

Gov. Ron DeSantis proclaimed in his inaugural address that making water quality a priority in Florida isn't just the smart thing to do, it’s the right thing to do. I absolutely agree with him. I believe the governor has the best of intentions.

Blaise Ingoglia

Blaise Ingoglia, Republican Party of Florida chair -- successful against all odds -- will be a tough act to follow. But somebody's got to do it. The Spring Hill representative is a firm believer in term limits for party chairs, and when the party meets this weekend in Orlando to elect a chairman, he won't be running for a third two-year term.

Not everybody shares U.S. Rep. Brian Mast's glee over Melanie Peterson's resignation and departure from the South Florida Water Management District Governing Board. Certainly I don't.

Certainly for the past four decades Cuban-Americans from Florida have flexed impressive political muscle. But today is different. Today we've reached a time and a place where no state in the country, at any point in history, has had more Cuban-American leaders in top political positions at home and in Washington than Florida has right now.

Robert Runcie and Scott Israel

Ten months after 17 people were shot to death at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Scott Israel and Robert Runcie are still looking for redemption. Certainly neither one of them -- the Broward County sheriff nor the superintendent of schools -- found it in the MSDHS Public Safety Commission initial report released Wednesday.
