  • OPINION — Time For Miami Heat Honchos to Grow a Pair!

    By July 28, 2013

    Four Miami Heat stars dealt with distracting, non-basketball personal matters during the recent playoffs. The side shows included the purchase of a new home, two baby mamas and one ex-wife. Fans deserve better — especially during the playoffs. Gossip Extra says: Heat President Pat Riley must mandate that players take...

  • OPINION: Stevie Wonder Wants to Boycott Florida? Go Ahead, Make Our Day!

    By July 24, 2013

    Soul superstar Stevie Wonder recently vowed to stop performing in Florida until the state repeals the controversial Stand Your Ground, a law that resurfaced front and center with the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Gossip Extra says: Sayonara, Stevie! There’s little doubt that Stand Your Ground is an atrocity. It’s the...

    EDITORIAL: GOP Pols Should Quit Imposing Elizabeth Fago Smith on Taxpayers!

    By May 5, 2013

    For the second time in less than a decade, a governor tried to impose Palm Beach Gardens businesswoman Elizabeth Fago Smith onto the taxpaying public — and for the second time, a governor was embarrassed. How does the word “enough” sound just about now? Businesswoman Fago Smith finally declined her...

  • EDITORIAL: Holding Palm Beach Society Hostage

    By February 3, 2013

    Isn’t it about time for the grown ups to take over Palm Beach society? That question shouldn’t shield the overarching fact that Palm Beach is home to some of the world’s most generous people. It’s just that a few judgment calls are beneath some of the philanthropists who make them,...

    EDITORIAL: The Palm Beach Post, Outsourced!

    By August 24, 2012

    Sounds like a joke but it’s not. If you’re still advertising in The Palm Beach Post by next week, the person handling your ad is likely going to be doing it in some Podunk town in India or a suburb of Manila, The Philippines. That’s because your fading, allegedly-local newspaper recently hired...

  • EDITORIAL: Palm Beach Post’s Dave Aronberg Take Down Smacks of Last Hurrah

    By July 24, 2012

    The Palm Beach Post claims its damaging stories about State Attorney candidate Dave Aronberg are to lift the veil off Palm Beach County’s power structure. What hypocrisy! Sunday’s gigantic installment about Aronberg’s relationship with multi-millionaire hot head Marty O’Boyle was about power all right — the power that The Palm Beach Post can feel slipping away...

  • EDITORIAL: Tea Party Sounds Off on Story About Allen West’s New Address

    By July 18, 2012

    Some of the emails I’ve received lately make the Tea Party look like the world’s largest collection of uneducated trash. Write about a Tea Bagger’s minion — in my case U.S. Congressman Allen West and his move to Palm Beach Gardens on time for the election — and this is the vitriol you get. From someone named Jamie Williams: To whomever you are…...

  • EDITORIAL: Attorney General Pam Bondi Can’t Even Level With The Public About Her Wedding!

    By May 29, 2012

    A day that should have been the greatest in Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi‘s life — well, Saturday was to be her third time at the altar, and you know what they say about the third time being the charm — will remain her most striking early-term public relations fiasco. Hard to believe in an administration like Gov. Rick...

  • EDITORIAL: Hey, Mainstream Media, Time to Wake up to Sheriff Ric Bradshaw’s Strange Views on The Media!

    By May 15, 2012

    Right underneath the noses of the anemic The Palm Beach Post, WPTV-Channel 5, WPEC-Channel 12 and WPBF-Channel 25, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw‘s henchmen are going after the very freedoms that made billionaires out of media owners and millionaires out of local media managers. And there’s not a damn thing they’re going to do about...

  • OPINION: Time to Send Sheriff Ric Bradshaw Packing!

    By March 6, 2012

    I don’t believe that Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw is a bad guy. I don’t believe he’s a thief, as banners flying high above Palm Beach County these days claim. And I believe he’s running a tight ship in trying times of terrorism, budget cuts and anti-government sentiments. But last...

  • EDITORIAL — Quitter State Attorney Michael McAuliffe’s Big Decision: The Rest of The Story

    By January 18, 2012

    The mainstream press did a dismal job covering Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe‘s decision to abandon his reelection effort, supposedly, allegedly, for a job in the private sector. There’s been no perspective offered. No explaining. No questioning. Oh, McAuliffe’s new job is real — but the official excuses for his not running again...

  • OPINION: Don’t Hold Your Breath For Answers in West Palm Beach/Redemptive Life $candal!

    By December 25, 2011

    Watching elected West Palm Beach officials squirm over the latest scandal has been entertaining. And telling about the local politics of race. On Dec. 2, Gossip Extra broke the story that the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development was investigating the handling of HUD grants...
