When even intelligent and educated minds discuss U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, a deep and fundamental lack of a historical and cultural context, seems all to common a road block. In this short essay by NYU professor and noted Middle East expert, Dr. Alon Ben-Meir, the importance of viewing geopolitical matters and proposed foreign policy through the lens of the Arab world is not only made clear, but facilitated. It is highly recommended reading for those seeking a better understanding of the subject.

Manatee County School District officials announced this week that they would seek public approval of a one millage point school property tax increase, an extension of the half-cent sales tax option and $150 million in new debt to build more schools. The items would appear as referendums on the November 2016 ballot. The district and its board has a considerable amount of work to do in the interim, if they expect to earn the public's trust to manage such an enormous investment.

The Manatee County School District is once again addressing another issue of the Frazier investigation. There is little doubt that the board will vote to approve the legal fees for Matthew Kane in the amount of over $49,000. The board has been consistent in whitewashing everyone connected to the scandal at Manatee High School.

"They thought all along that they could call me a libertarian and hang that label around my neck like an albatross," Rand Paul said in 2010 during his Republican primary campaign for US Senate, "but I'm not a libertarian." Paul prevailed, but seems to want to forget that disclaimer now that he's running for President.

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.
