Cerabino: Keeping Trump’s military parade plans from going adrift
 We might have to start re-imagining our holiday boat parades. I’ll explain. Soon after President Donald Trump reportedly dispatched the Pentagon to plan for a military march down Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation’s capital, some members of Congress sought to thwart him by legislation. The bill, called The PARADE Act &mdash...

Cerabino: For EPA’s Pruitt, Florida visit just gives us the business
 It would be nice to have notice the next time U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt slips in out of Florida like a ninja.

Cerabino: Stop spreading the news; Florida seeking New Yorkers
 Dear New Yorkers: I am writing to give you further context to a story you may have read this week in The New York Post. The story, titled, “Florida ready to take in New Yorkers seeking tax shelter”  seems to imply that we here in Florida are eager to have more former New Yorkers living here. This is not correct...
