Guest Opinion: Clean Waterways Act falls far short of what’s needed

Gov. DeSantis recently signed into law SB 712 -- the self-proclaimed "Clean Waterways Act". However, the bill falls far short of resolving Florida's mounting water quality problems.Supporters praise the bill as one of the most environmentally progressive pieces of legislation in over a decade. ...

Don’t let Trump brainwash you

To the editor:The good people of Southwest Florida are realizing that even though Trump is almost through with his first four years of his presidency, he hasn't come close to keeping his campaign promises even though his Republican Party controls the Senate. He said that the fulfillment of his ...

Where is our state leadership?

To the editor:Gov. DeSantis was roundly critiqued as feckless and reckless for opening Florida to infection from COVID-19. Now we can add murderously callous as he dismissively shrugs off the skyrocketing infection rate in Florida. Instead of leadership the governor took an early victory lap. ...
