On the Saturday that came a week before Easter Sunday, the Rubonia Easter egg hunt was full of food, fun, games and music, with more than fifty children gathering hundreds of eggs at the town's community center. But beyond the festive excitement and glee in the eyes of the young, lies a commitment on the faces of the elders of this nearly 100 year old historical African-American community; a duty to hold on to the honor once bestowed.

Jeb Bush might be the Florida Republican getting the most ink in the daily news cycle, but the trickle down of GOP pols looking to vie for higher office remains considerable. With Marco Rubio set to throw his hat in the presidential ring next week, the rest of the state's Republicans have begun moving their pieces around the chessboard.

I am frequently asked why Washington seems incapable of resolving our nation’s biggest challenges. Gridlock and dysfunction have come to define a broken political system. But last week something unusual happened — bipartisanship broke out in Washington.

A couple of years back, I read some startling figures on the sustainability of cattle production and the bleak long-term outlook for beef as populations grew, living standards rose and more and more humans were increasing the amount of meat in their diet. It didn’t take much to see that when it came to a world in which everyone adopted the meat-heavy American diet, the math didn’t add up. The amount of land required (not only for the cattle but to grow their feed), along with the vast amount of water involved in the process, simply made it impossible. An excellent new documentary explores the issue.

There has been much talk over the last two weeks regarding monies accrued via last year’s constitutional amendment, which sets aside a portion of doc stamp fees for land acquisition, and whether they should be used to purchase land to protect the Everglades. The debate takes place within a larger, more convoluted story. Let's take a closer look.

For several years now, the county has been wrestling with broad changes to its property codes. We feel the ordinance that will come before the county on Thursday is not appropriate for countywide use and should be voted down by the commission.

I am compelled to point out the fallacy of our Tallahassee leadership in their rush to destroy Florida’s groundwater and thus our future.

This week, school board chair Bob Gause decided to follow board attorney Jim Dye’s advice and not hold a special meeting to answer items in a presentation by internal auditors and staff legal counsel to its audit committee. It’s the first time in recent memory that Gause has taken Dye’s advice, and taxpayers should be grateful.

This week, the governor and state cabinet voted unanimously not to adopt an ALJ’s recommended order in regards to the proposed increased density at Robinson Farms. We find this decision disappointing and feel that it is further proof that the governor’s gutting of the Department of Community Affairs is not in the best interest of sensible growth management practices.

At Tuesday's SWFWMD Surplus lands meeting, there was a good turn out from people who were involved in saving Pine Island from development in the early 2000s. If the public does not intervene, this important ecological area could be sold as surplus property for developers to build on.
