Editorial: TV spending and the governor's race E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
The Florida gubernatorial race is, by all accounts, the most expensive one being run in the country today. It’s so big, you can find any number of, well ... numbers, for the actual amounts of money being spent ... and from where. Rick Scott’s official elections war chest was about $14.6 million this week. Crist has raised $12.7 million. You’d think that would be sufficient to run a campaign. But it goes deeper than that. read more

Jerusalem stone may answer Jewish revolt questions E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
JERUSALEM — Israeli archaeologists said Tuesday they have discovered a large stone with Latin engravings that lends credence to the theory that the reason Jews revolted against Roman rule nearly 2,000 ago was because of their harsh treatment. Israel’s Antiquities Authority said the stone bears the name of the Roman emperor Hadrian and the year of his visit to Jerusalem, a few years before the failed Bar Kochba revolt in the second century A.D. The inscription backs up historical accounts that Rome’s Tenth Legion was present in Jerusalem in the run-up to the revolt. read more

News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
WASHINGTON — Earth is on pace to tie or even break the mark for the hottest year on record, federal meteorologists say.

Letter: Racist Republicans E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
Racist Republicans   Editor: It’s absolutely ridiculous to read and witness on TV ads how the Republican Party is portraying Charlie Crist and his recent history with President Barack Obama. Their relationship is what he chose. The picture painted is, again, the highest form of racism. There is no wiggle room here. These people are racist. President Obama, in his two terms, has righted the corruptible ship that his predecessor ignited. read more

Ebola versus civil liberties E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
Unnervingly, the U.S. public health services remain steps behind the Ebola virus. Contact tracing is what we do, Centers for Disease Control Director Tom Frieden assured the nation. It will stop the epidemic “in its tracks.” And yet nurses Nina Pham and Amber Vinson, who developed Ebola, were not even among the 48 contacts the CDC was initially following. Nor were any of the doctors and nurses who treated the “index patient,” Thomas Duncan. No one even had a full list of caregivers. read more

Abby: Halloween cowgirl can leave her pistol at home E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
DEAR ABBY: Halloween is around the corner, and my 7-year-old daughter has decided to be a cowgirl. She wants the boots, the hat and the gun. Is it appropriate to let her have a holster and an obviously toy gun to accessorize her costume for trick-or-treating? She would not be taking that part of her costume to school on Halloween. I live in a part of the country where guns are an important part of our culture, but I am unsure how to proceed. — CONFUSED ABOUT HALLOWEEN IN MONTANA read more

I wish we could be more helpful. Some good news is that a stringer of 10 speckled perch came from Trout Creek this week. The gentleman caught more, but those were his keepers. read more

Letter: DeSantis short on answers for this St. Augustine reader E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
Editor: Your Oct. 12 endorsement of Ron DeSantis, was a good one. Because I perceived the same about him, I voted for him in the last election. Apparently, he now seems caught up in “being in Washington” and has little time to “do what he said he would do.” While he enjoys all the benefits, salary and vacations (that are provided by our tax dollars), and has time to write a book, he does not have time to respond to a simple inquiry from one of his constituents. read more

Thomas Sowell: Predatory lending and the poor E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
The New York Times is again on the warpath against what it calls “predatory lending.” Just what is predatory lending? It is lending that charges a higher interest rate than people like those at the New York Times approve of. According to such thinking — or lack of thinking — the answer is to have the government set an interest rate ceiling at a level that will be acceptable to third parties like the New York Times. read more

JACKSONVILLE — Florida’s leading candidates for governor clashed fiercely during their final debate on Tuesday night, sniping at each over everything from the economy and the minimum wage to the death penalty.

Not so fast cordcutters: Cable's not going anywhere E-mail

NEW YORK — Cord cutters rejoiced last week after HBO and CBS announced plans to sell stand-alone streaming services, a move that cable and satellite television providers have resisted for years.

Get Netflix, throw in HBO, add a network here and there — why would anyone sign up now for cable? Well, don’t sound the death knell for cable companies yet. read more

DEAR DR. ROACH: In one of Dr. Donohue’s columns years ago, he wrote about pain in the rectum that he said was caused by “trapped gas” (as well as I can recall), and he recommended sitting on a baseball (or some kind of ball) for a bit and that would relieve it. It worked! I have been using that method for years now, and wish I had thanked him for that advice! I actually keep a baseball handy just in case I need it! read more
