Six weeks ago, Hurricane Irma blew through our island chain, leaving in its wake thousands of damaged or destroyed homes and shattering the lives of many of our friends and neighbors. Irma released her most destructive wrath on the Lower Keys, where many families who support our community and our tourist-based economy reside. Being priced[...]
It’s been almost two months since Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc on the Florida Keys. Recovery started moments after the storm had passed and today, in some parts of our community, one can hardly tell a storm even hit. Tragically, travel Big Pine to Big Coppitt and one would think the storm hit a week ago.[...]
“The Everglades is a test. If we pass it, we may get to keep the planet,” Marjory Stoneman Douglas, journalist-turned-Everglades crusader, was fond of saying several decades ago.

A term limit is a legal restriction that limits the number of terms an elected official may serve in a particular elected office. Every few years, we[...]

The referendum comes at a time when the lack of affordable housing has reached a crisis level. Even before[...]
Leave our time alone — that’s the message of the Florida legislature to Congress. Just as everyone is preparing to “change time” again this weekend, turning our clocks back one hour, both the state House and Senate have passed the “Sunshine Protection Act,” which would keep the state in perpetual daylight savings time. An antiquated[...]
