A federal judge in Florida ruled that the Department of Justice broke the law by failing to confer with victims of Jeffrey Epstein, a well-connected Palm Beach billionaire and alleged serial sex abuser of underage girls, about the 2008 plea deal that garnered him only 13 months in prison and no federal trial.

Jack Rogers, the Sandal Jacqueline Kennedy Made Famous, Is Stepping Things Up

Growing up in Hawaii, Lydia Park Luis saw many a brand of sandals and open-toed shoes. But she's still surprised over the one she didn't see: Jack Rogers, the tony sandals with the signature whip stitch and rondelle accent. Every Palm Beach doyenne, every Princeton girl, has a pair of Jacks in her closet--but Park...

DeSantis Suspends FL County Elections Chief For Missing Recount Deadlines

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended a county elections supervisor Friday who failed to meet deadlines during recounts after November’s election.

Trump’s Companies Boosted Foreign Worker Visas To 10-Year High In 2018

President Trump may have ratcheted up his anti-immigration efforts in recent months, but his family companies appear to be using foreign workers at a higher rate than ever before. The Trump Organization requested and received at least 192 visas for foreign workers in 2018, according to Department of Labor data. That number appears to be the highest for the company going back to at least 2008 and likely much earlier, based on public records. The nearly two decades’ worth of data were pulled to...

First Look: Odyssey Stroke Lab, EXO, and Toulon Putters

Odyssey Gets The Shaft in 2019 2019 is going to be a big year for Odyssey. Now I know that I’m not really going out on a limb with that prediction. Odyssey had a pretty big 2018. Odyssey putters were the most played, and most winning putters on the professional tours, and their sales were somewhere in the ninety million dollar range. Think about that number for a second. If a putter costs about $200, ninety million dollars means that they sold around 450,000 putters! That’s a lot of putters m...

How a millionaire slumlord got sweetheart government deals to maintain armed forces housing and then left them to rot

John Picerne is a hereditary one-percenter whose contribution to his family legacy of "real estate development" was to spend millions on lobbying, which landed him millions more in government loans earmarked for taking over the maintenance of 26,000 units of on-base military housing in 13 locations, with the repayment of the loans coming straight out of enlisted personnel's paychecks. Despite all that public largesse, Picerne's company, Corvias Group, did not live up to its promises: instea...

7-year-old who spoke to Trump about Santa still believes

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE | Associated Press WASHINGTON — A 7-year-old girl who talked to President Donald Trump on Christmas Eve still left out milk and cookies for Santa despite the president telling her it was “marginal” for a child of her age to still believe in the jolly old elf. Then again, Collman Lloyd of Lexington, South Carolina, says she had never heard the word “marginal” before.

Why you should visit Ft. Lauderdale

Usually when you see the name Broward County, it’s followed by something embarrassingly Florida. An election recount, maybe. Or a TV show where police officers arrest people who’ve been using alligators in very inappropriate ways. In reality, Broward County is a seaside, tropical locale with 23 miles of coastline and a population of two million, smack between Miami and Palm Beach County. It’s a vacation oasis to millions from all over the world — but somewhere along the line, Broward got an ...

Red tide is now gone from Florida

Far from the palm-studded paradise of beach bums, Florida has been a veritable nightmare for the past several months. The red tide, a natural environmental phenomenon made worse by pollution and other man-made causes, struck Florida and caused irritation, sneezing, and coughing in beachgoers and significant loss of marine life in some areas. Today, the red tide is gone from most major tourist areas and Florida’s beaches are open for business. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserv...

Thousands Of Mailed Ballots Not Counted In Florida Elections

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida officials say thousands of mailed ballots were not counted because they were delivered too late to state election offices. The Department of State late last week informed a federal judge that 6,670 ballots were mailed ahead of the Nov. 6 election but were not counted because they were not received by Election Day. The tally prepared by state officials includes totals from 65 of Florida’s 67 counties. The two counties yet to report their totals are Palm Beach, ...
