Cerabino: School’s out, video games in, for solar eclipse
 Palm Beach County’s public schools are allowing students to stay home on Monday so they can safely observe the afternoon’s partial solar eclipse for as long as their parents allow. Students who choose to go to school may only view the eclipse during principal-authorized viewing events with glasses approved by the American...

Cerabino: University of Florida fails history with neo-Nazi ban
 If you care at all about government intrusion on free speech, you shouldn’t be applauding the University of Florida’s decision to ban white nationalist leader Richard Spencer from speaking on campus next month. As American scholar Noam Chomsky once put it: “If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we...

Cerabino: North Korean nukes an opportunity for Florida tourism launch
 Florida, which is no stranger to making all sorts of desperate appeals for tourists, might want to consider “nuclear tourism.” I mention this because if you’ve been paying attention to North Korea’s nuclear aspirations, you will see that the projected limits of that country’s Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic...

Cerabino: The KKK in Palm Beach taught us to let the haters speak
 White supremacists are their own worst enemies. The more they speak, the more they reveal themselves to be anything but “supreme.” So muzzling them, or trying to muzzle them, elevates their low-brow racism, sexism and anti-Semitism to the level of importance it doesn’t deserve. Denounce them. Absolutely. Call them...

Cerabino: Readers who don’t read weigh in on President Trump
 Notes from Hell, Volume 99: * Dear Debra: First of all, thanks for reading my column titled “A nude beach in Palm Beach County is barely plausible,” even if the reading was simply due to a temporary memory lapse on your part. Have you tried ginkgo biloba? Apparently, your reading misadventure of my column was turning out just...

Cerabino: Zika virus brings new form to Florida dating
 *** So as a public service, I’ve created the following application form for Florida women to give their prospective partners to ensure that the spread of the Zika virus does not become an epidemic in our state.

Cerabino: Things could be looking up for relocating Wellington’s horse droppings
 For years now, Palm Beach County has been struggling to deal with its abundance of horse droppings. We are over-blessed in these deposits due to the Wellington equestrian community. And efforts to stash it somewhere, anywhere, have so far come up short. About 10 years ago we had a bright idea to put it in trucks and ship 32 tons of horse...

When lovebirds stop tweeting; Aronberg’s ‘Trump Divorce’ is fake news
 We here in Palm Beach County are coming to grips with the so-called “Trump Divorce” between our top criminal prosecutor and one of our top karate-black-belt former Miami Dolphins cheerleaders. I’m willing to blame President Donald Trump for an awful lot of things, but I’m not quite ready to put the two-year...

Cerabino: New train of thought; Brightline enriches, endangers Trump
 Lawyers representing foes of the Brightline Miami-to-Orlando passenger train played their Trump card this past week. They argued that a loan from the Federal Railroad Administration to pay for the new train service would create untoward financial rewards for President Donald Trump while also creating unique security concerns for the...

Cerabino: Pulp Non-fiction; Antonacci is Gov. Rick Scott’s “Wolfe.”
 Florida’s got its own Winston Wolfe. You remember “The Wolfe.” He was the character played by Harvey Keitel in the Quentin Tarantino movie, Pulp Fiction. “I solve problems,” was how The Wolfe described his many-faceted job working for a powerful, but unseen boss. Florida’s Winston Wolfe is Pete...

Cerabino: Paying the price for school spirit at Lake Worth High
 You’ve got to hand it to former Lake Worth High School principal George Lockhart. He’s certainly a guy who isn’t afraid of thinking outside the box. Like getting the high school teachers who worked for him to do his middle-school son’s online algebra homework. That’s so far out of the box that it nearly...

Cerabino: Voter fraud in Palm Beach County? No private eye needed.
 The phone rings, jarring me from my afternoon nap. ”Philip Marlowe here,” I say, while reaching for the pack of gaspers under the Palm Beach Kennel Club racing form. “Mr. Marlowe,” the whiny voice on the line says. “I hope I didn’t catch you at a bad time.” “Any time you call, Cerabino, is a...

Cerabino: Trump touts ‘America first,’ until he needs cheap labor at Mar-a-Lago
 In case you haven’t noticed, our governor, Rick Scott, is obsessed with jobs. He loves talking about his devotion to putting people to work in Florida. “I travel the state every day and I can say the most important thing we can do is give people a job,” Scott said earlier this year in South Florida while on one of his...

In Riviera Beach, where the handling of illegal immigrants is harshest
 It’s strange that Riviera Beach has become a focal point of discord over the handling of undocumented residents. Of all the jurisdictions in Palm Beach County, you wouldn’t expect that the one led by the area’s most well-known civil rights advocate is where the most pressing civil rights issue of our time...

Ann Coulter attacks Delta on Twitter after ‘pure hell’ trip to PBIA

Sign at Loxahatchee Wendy’s may mean ‘Skip the bacon queso fries!’
 I’ve been in full Da Vinci Code mode since learning about that sign in the lobby at a Wendy’s restaurant in Loxahatchee. The sign read, “All of Wendy’s sins off one word — FRESH.” What exactly are Wendy’s sins? I mean we know McDonald’s has the McRib, Burger King has a chocolate shake with 83...

Gun-toting pastor in Corvette latest exemplar of Florida road rage
 Somebody needs to say some kind words about the visiting Episcopal priest who booked a room briefly at the Martin County Jail. The Very Reverend William Rian Adams was apparently on a road trip from North Carolina in his red Corvette last week when he waved his Glock 22 handgun at two people in a pickup truck on Florida&rsquo...

Fear ‘Trumps’ decency in deporting Palm Beach restaurant manager
 If anyone other than Donald Trump had been elected president last November, there wouldn’t be a question over whether Francisco Javier Gonzalez would still be the beloved manager of a Palm Beach restaurant next week. On Friday, the Mexican-born husband of an American citizen and father of their three American-citizen daughters, ranging...
