Cerabino: Holy cow! Baseball a training ground for making porn movies?
 I was surprised to learn that the former video coordinator with the Miami Marlins thinks that his baseball experience has helped him become a better producer of pornographic movies. Cullen McRae told The Palm Beach Post’s Joe Capozzi that his old job, making baseball videos, has been valuable experience for his new job, making porn...

Cerabino: What does Enterprise Florida have to do with Lake O?
 There’s a spillover. That’s the best way to explain the complicated web of politics surrounding Lake Okeechobee’s dirty water. There was a spillover crowd at Pahokee High School last Friday that had come to tell Florida Sen. President Joe Negron that they didn’t like his plan to convert 60,000 acres of farmland south...

Cerabino: Throwing book at Trump over his Florida golf course outings
 The next time President Donald Trump comes to Mar-a-Lago for a weekend, he needs to take an outing to one of Palm Beach County’s public libraries. It will really help to clear thing up. I’ll explain. The way things stand now, it appears that President Trump is playing a lot of golf. But he’s not. It’s probably fake...

Cerabino: It was moydah the time Jimmy Breslin came to town
 I discovered Jimmy Breslin’s writing somewhere in the Indian Ocean, and met him years later in the Palm Beach County Courthouse. Breslin died on Sunday at the age of 88. And I’m just one of a long line of lesser scribes who are left to feel in debt. New York’s greatest newspaper columnist had eluded me through my youth on...

Cerabino: What happens when protesters stand their ground in Florida?
 When it comes to enabling aggressors, Florida legislators are always in the mood. But this year, by pushing parallel acts of civic blood lust, they may be creating some unintended consequences. Let me explain. First, there’s the Senate bill that encourages drivers to plow through protesters. The bill (SB1096) might as well be called...

Cerabino: A taxing solution to pay for Trump’s Mar-a-Lago getaways
 I just don’t see Mar-a-Lago as a “municipal service benefit unit.” I’ve been to the Palm Beach estate only a few times, so I’m no expert. But I’m certain that after being in close proximity to this majestic 20-acre estate, I’ve never found myself muttering under my breath, “Pretty nice municipal...

Cerabino: Trump vs. circumcision protesters. What’s the difference?

Posted: 11 days ago

We switched from anti-Trump to anti-circumcision protests in Palm Beach this past weekend. It was a refreshing change of pace. With President Donald Trump taking a rare weekend away from Mar-a-Lago — he’s scheduled to be back again this weekend — the usual protesters had the weekend off. And it made room for Bloodstained...
Cerabino: A snake — not snake oil — proposition to Florida’s jobs forecast

Posted: 15 days ago

It’s understandable why Enterprise Florida, that semi-public agency tasked with bringing high-paying jobs to Florida, is on the ropes. State lawmakers have grown weary of throwing tens of millions of dollars at an outfit that has created more theoretical jobs than real ones while tending to subsidize companies that are already doing...
Cerabino: A marriage dodge, or just two public servants?

Posted: 16 days ago

At first, I thought Martin Marquez had come up with a clever way to take a timeout from his 37-year marriage. Marquez, a 66-year-old architect in Miami Springs, a community wedged between Hialeah and Miami International Airport, is running for office next month along with his wife, Kathie. They’re seeking two of the seats on the Miami...
Getting liberated from science in Florida’s ‘religious liberties’ bill
 The Florida Legislature is back in session, so there’s a whole bunch of fresh hell on its way. Where to begin? OK, how about the Florida Student and School Personnel Religious Liberties Act? It’s something cooked up by Florida’s favorite undertaker/lawmaker Dennis Baxley, who has a long history of thinking that the theory...

Cerabino: Buffett (and others?) get in tune with retiring Baby Boomers
 Beachy minstrel Jimmy Buffett is parlaying his following of aging Baby Boomers into plans for a string of “55 and better” retirement communities. The first one, Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach, is envisioned to be a haven for aging Parrotheads who will be spending more time than ever looking for their lost shakers of...
