The Papers Today

From the Sun-Sentinel……www.sunsentinel.com

Reports of sea turtles popping up 3 weeks early at the Boca Raton municipal beaches. Gumbo Limbo sent out a conservationist to check the tracks due to this being the earliest sighting known ….something is triggering their instincts to nest….

When I think of sea turtles….what comes to mind…living at Sea Ranch Club…..we still have no lights on A1A!

A fellow resident addressed this last season and was told it would be done after sea turtle season….from, I believe, a DOT representative.

Well….here we go again if this is what is in store at this end of the beach…..no lights will be forthcoming still….waiting for this season to end….even though anyone who stands in front of the condominiums can attest…no street lights could possibly affect the turtles on the beach…tall buildings and all, and the promise that the still missing replacement lights would be sea turtle regulation …..what a vicious cycle…indeed!

Postal rates…another early surprise!

Beginning May 12th they go up a penny….and the appeasement offered…go out and get those “forever” stamps…of course you need to wait in line for a while as the ever dwindling post office personal seems to be the norm…where will the increase go? A few more employees would be nice!

I remember when the Vietnam War was winding down…wearing a bracelet with the name of an American soldier believed to be missing in action or being held prisoner.

They are making a comeback…in Wisconsin, a mother of a slain soldier gave a wristband with her son’s name to Barack Obama….which he accepted, wore and showed to reporters.

Evolution remains the hot button topic …theory verses science… in our schools….

Having a daughter at University of Chicago, in the Darwinian Studies program working on her PhD…..the idea that Florida is still in the dark ages of it being science or theory…is quite astounding. All one has to do is take a look at the research going on…and what will come from it which will affect our futures….each and everyone of us.

Alternative fuels…another ongoing hot topic, ethanol…hydrogen….at what cost?

Ethanol costs more…makes the food prices rise ..further dividing the haves and have- nots….

Hydrogen…my choice…as soon as the safety aspect can be dealt with…and those concerned with danger…we must have faced similar fears with using gasoline ….long ago.

Miami Herald….www.miamiherald.com

An editorial about France and antisemitism… President Sarkowsky stepping forward to threaten that France will pull out of the United Nation’s next racism conference if if resembles the anti- semitic hate fest of the first conference.

What a brave stance to take with antisemitism on the rise in his country…Bravo!….forget the guy’s tabloid filled private life….he’s the real deal!
