Cerabino: Snowbird season’s over; Was it good for you?
 It’s over. The signs are everywhere. Zika mosquitoes are back in the news. Tropical Storm Arlene, the first tropical storm of the season, is already churning in the Atlantic. And the checkout lines at Costco are only three deep. End of the season. Finito. Even Snowbird One isn’t at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, and there’s speculation...

Cerabino: Manalapan suicide should've been Bill O’Reilly’s unraveling at Fox
 Bill O’Reilly’s career at Fox News should have been on the rocks years ago over what Reilly did — or didn’t do — in Palm Beach County. O’Reilly has built his audience on the premise that he is a purveyor of the truth in his “no-spin zone.” And he has parlayed that into a series of non-fiction...

Cerabino: Little tickets become big deal for some in Florida
 Driving records are being used in Florida to deport some people and keep others from getting their voting rights restored. Take what’s happening in Collier County these days. That Southwest Florida county was one of 37 in 16 states that partnered with the U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement in something called the 287 (g) program...

Trump Palm Beach: Golf cart rental for president has us in the rough
 The federal government ought to buy a fleet of golf carts in Palm Beach County. The Secret Service needs them when they watch President Donald Trump play golf during his Palm Beach County weekends at Mar-a-Lago. Which happens more than we had imagined. In just the first three months of his presidency, the Secret Service has paid at least...

Cerabino: Chicken soup (and bananas) for the bicycle-riders’ soul

Posted: 9 days ago

Notes from hell; Volume 98: * Dear Frank: “I don’t know who to turn to. I accidentally threw the paper away last week with the story about the woman who was arrested for throwing a pot of hot chicken soup at her husband, or some other male, and the chicken was still in it. “I only prayed that you noticed too and are going...
Cerabino: President Trump’s got a golf addiction, and we’ve got the cure
 We need to make an intervention on behalf of President Donald Trump. This would be the time, now that he’s here for another weekend. Another weekend of temptation. That’s right, he’ll be back within playing distance to three of his South Florida golf clubs, including Trump International Golf Club in suburban West Palm Beach...

Cerabino: Florida voter finally gets to make her declaration of independence
 When Karen Milstein moved to Florida from Virginia she considered herself an independent voter. “I didn’t want to have all this junk coming in the mail from the Republicans and Democrats,” she said. “I wanted to vote with my brain.” And so for the past 20 years, this 62-year-old romance novelist in suburban...

Cerabino: Florida may soon order its children to go outside and play
 It turns out I had a charmed childhood. I didn’t realize it at the time. I thought I was just bored a lot. My mother, if she ever caught my brother and me lingering in the house on a nice day, would simply say, “Go outside and play.” No supervision. No guidance. No instructions other than to figure out how to amuse ourselves...

Cerabino: Look to Harry’s Banana Farm to define Chinese leader’s visit
 One of the advantages of holding diplomatic summits in Palm Beach County instead of Washington, D.C., is that it puts the action closer to Harry’s Banana Farm in Lake Worth. Anybody driving by on Dixie Highway this week may have noticed the new message on the bar’s parking lot sign: “I just heard China bought Lantana...
