Streams and lakes have rights, a US county decided. Now they’re suing Florida

A novel lawsuit is taking advantage of a local ‘rights of nature’ measure passed in November in effort to protect wetlands

A network of streams, lakes and marshes in Florida is suing a developer and the state to try to stop a housing development from destroying them.

The novel lawsuit was filed on Monday in Orange county on behalf of the waterways under a “rights of nature” law passed in November. It is the largest US municipality to adopt such a law to date.

The listed plaintiffs are Wilde Cypress Branch, Boggy Branch, Crosby Island Marsh, Lake Hart and Lake Mary Jane.

Laws protecting the rights of nature are growing throughout the world, from Ecuador to Uganda, and have been upheld in courts in India, Colombia and Bangladesh. But this is the first time anyone has tried to enforce them in the US.

The Orange county law secures the rights of its waterways to exist, to flow, to be protected against pollution and to maintain a healthy ecosystem. It also recognizes the authority of citizens to file enforcement actions on their behalf.

The suit, filed in the ninth judicial circuit court of Florida, claims a proposed 1,900-acre housing development by Beachline South Residential LLC would destroy more than 63 acres of wetlands and 33 acres of streams by filling and polluting them, as well as 18 acres of wetlands where stormwater detention ponds are being built.

In addition to seeking to protect the waterways’ intrinsic rights, the suit claims the development would disrupt the area’s hydrology and violate the human right to clean water because of pollution runoff from new roads and buildings.

Chuck O’Neal, president of campaign group Speak Up Wekiva who will be representing the wetlands in court, told the Guardian he looks forward to giving them a voice. “Our waterways and the wildlife they support have been systematically destroyed by poorly planned suburban sprawl. They have suffered in silence and without representation, until now.”

The housing development, known as the “Meridian Parks Remainder Project”, needs a development permit from the city of Orlando and a dredge-and-fill permit from the Florida department of environmental protection to proceed. The suit seeks to block these from being issued.

Fox News was the only news outlet allowed to cover Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' signing of a controversial election-administration bill
  • Only Fox News was allowed to cover Gov. DeSantis signing a GOP-backed election bill in Florida.
  • Other reporters who showed up to cover the Thursday event reported being turned away.
  • The law, Senate Bill 90, adds new restrictions on ballot drop boxes and mail voting.

Cruise giant Norwegian threatens to skip Florida's ports

Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is threatening to skip Florida ports because of the governor's order banning businesses from requiring that customers be vaccinated against COVID-19

Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is threatening to keep its ships out of Florida after the governor signed legislation banning businesses from requiring that customers show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

The company says the law signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis is at odds with guidelines from federal health authorities that would let cruise ships sail in U.S. waters if nearly all passengers and crew members are vaccinated.

“It is a classic state-versus-federal-government issue,” said Norwegian's CEO, Frank Del Rio. “Lawyers believe that federal law applies and not state law, but I’m not a lawyer. And we hope that this doesn’t become a legal football or a political football.”

The company owns Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Del Rio told analysts during the company's quarterly earnings call Thursday that if the company can’t operate in Florida, it can go to other states or the Caribbean “for ships that otherwise would have gone to Florida ... we certainly hope it doesn't come to that.”

Del Rio said the company is still discussing the matter with DeSantis’ office.

Miami judge who used staff for personal errands resigns

A Florida judge who publicly accepted responsibility for skipping work and making his staff run personal errands for him has resigned

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Martin Zilber submitted his resignation letter Friday, the Miami Herald reported.

The Florida Supreme Court wanted a more severe punishment than the 60-day suspension and $30,000 fine recommended by the state Judicial Qualifications Commission, according to WPLG-TV. The court sent the case back to the judicial disciplinary agency in April for a full hearing, which could have led to a formal removal from the bench.

According to the Herald, the commission found that Zilber’s routine mistreatment of his staff included berating his judicial assistant, Dixidela Dent.

Zilber commented on the “inconvenient timing of her pregnancy,” the commission found, adding the judge once asked Dent while pregnant to wheel his chair up “several floors to the courtroom and then lift it onto the dais prior to hearings.”

The investigation determined that she and the judge’s bailiff were required to drive Zilber to various events. Dent was also told to create a scrapbook of his achievements.

Zilber sent his bailiff to register his car with the state highway safety department and motor vehicles, as well as to pick up tickets for an art fair.

Between January 2019 and March 2020, according to the commission, Zilber was absent from the courthouse 51 days without notifying superiors. It said he often left work early.

School decides to cover girls' chests by altering yearbook photos, St. Johns County students, parents angry

Image

ST JOHNS, Fla. — Some St. Johns County parents with kids at Bartram Trail High School are outraged after receiving their child's yearbook and seeing their child's photo had been edited without permission.

The photos below are just one example. Riley O'Keefe was wearing an outfit that the school told her met the dress code requirements, yet the school decided to edit the photo that appeared in the yearbook to cover up part of the student's body. O'Keefe told First Coast News she believes there's a double standard and pointed out members of the boys swim team were in the yearbook wearing speedos.

"It doesn't make any sense that they looked at that and was like, 'This is okay, but this is not,'" she said.

Her mother says she was never contacted about a re-take.

someone on the internet wrote:An elderly man in Florida had owned a large property for several years. He had a pond in one of the lower acres that had been fixed up for swimming and he also had some picnic tables placed there in the shade of the fruit trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond to look it over, as he hadn’t been there for a while. He grabbed a large bucket to bring some fruit back with him.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. When he got around the trees and bushes, he saw it was a group of young women skinny dipping in his pond.

He called out so that they could see he was there. When they saw him, they started shrieking and moved to the deep end.

One of them shouted at the old man, “We’re not coming out until you leave!”

The old man frowned and said, “Now, I didn’t come here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond.”

Holding up the bucket and smiling, he said, “I’m just here to feed the alligator.”

  • ‘This Is About a Woman’s Right to Win’: Female Activist Praises DeSantis for Defending Girls’ Sports
    https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2021/0 ... ls-sports/
    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act into law on Tuesday and said the state is committed to protecting girls and women from the left’s efforts to allow biological males who “identify” as women to compete against biological females.

    . . . Florida is the eighth state to pass laws restricting sports participation to assigned birth gender, not gender identitiy.

Florida girl and boy, armed with AK-47, in shootout with deputies

Two children in Florida ran away from a group home, broke into a house and engaged in a shootout with law enforcement officers responding to the scene, authorities said on Wednesday.

A 12-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl found guns inside a home they broke into in Enterprise, Florida, and fired on sheriff's deputies, the Volusia County sheriff's office said in a statement.

The girl was shot and wounded after she pointed a shotgun at deputies.

"The 12-year-old boy, armed with an AK-47, finally put down his weapon shortly thereafter and was not injured," the sheriff's statement said.
...
Unspecified charges against the children are pending, according to the sheriff's department.

The children had run away from Florida United Methodist Children's Home in Enterprise on Tuesday afternoon, the sheriff's department said.

A few hours later, they broke into a home. Passersby reported hearing glass breaking at the home, and alerted the deputies.

The officers surrounded the home. At that point gunfire erupted from the house, the sheriff's statement said. The home contained a handgun, a shotgun and the AK-47, along with a large amount of ammunition.

A Florida dad threw his infant at a deputy after a high-speed chase, sheriff's office says

A Florida man faces aggravated child abuse and other charges after hurling his infant at a deputy near the end of a high-speed chase, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office said.
The 32-year-old suspect is seen being tackled by law enforcement as a deputy cradles a baby in a sky-blue outfit, according to video released this week by the sheriff's office.
Deputy Jacob Curby told CNN affiliate WPEC the suspect -- who law enforcement identified as John Henry James III -- left his car carrying his baby after the pursuit the evening of May 26 and "just turned around, no regard, not a little toss" and "overhand threw this two-month-old at me from about six feet away."
Curby caught the baby, who was unhurt, the station reported. The sheriff's office said deputies were "able to relocate the baby to safety."

Florida's largest county OKs plan after spike in gun deaths

Florida’s largest county is advancing a nearly $8 million plan to reduce gun violence after a recent uptick in shootings

MIAMI -- Florida's largest county is moving forward after a recent spike in shootings with a nearly $8 million plan to reduce gun violence, seeking to focus on jobs for troubled teens and added funding for law enforcement.

Miami-Dade commissioners unanimously approved Mayor Daniella Levine Cava's proposal at a meeting Tuesday, which followed an uptick in gun violence that began Memorial Day weekend.

“This recent wave of tragic violence is absolutely unacceptable," Levine Cava said after the meeting. “This community has demanded an immediate response to protect public safety, and we are responding.”

The "Peace and Prosperity Plan" is being funded by a naming-rights deal made earlier this year with FTX, a trading platform for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, for the county-owned arena where the Miami Heat play. FTX Arena had previously been called American Airlines Arena.

Most of the money is to go to a program that focuses on teenagers already in the juvenile-justice system by providing summer camps, counseling and paying jobs. Funds are also going toward surveillance cameras, license-plate readers and additional police to monitor social media for threats that could lead to shootings.

Last week, Miami-Dade police launched “Operation Summer Heat” as an effort to crack down on gun violence. The 12-week program involves an increased police presence, with 17 strike teams tasked with shutting down illegally run businesses, which officials say attract violent crime.

Early Tuesday morning, a man and woman riding in a car were killed in a drive-by shooting in Miami-Dade. A drive-by shooting early Sunday at a graduation party left three dead. Another shooting on Friday in Miami's Wynwood neighborhood killed one person and injured six others. A bloody Memorial Day weekend saw three people killed and 20 wounded in a still-unsolved mass shooting at a banquet hall.

    BROOKSVILLE, Fla. — A small town in Florida accidentally sold its water tower in a blundered real estate transaction.

    . . . Luckily for the town, [the buyer] was willing to give it back.

This kind of incompetence is wasted at the local level. They should be holding federal positions.
Aside: I've been to Brooksville many times. And the photo accompanying the story is not it.

You really are tough to communicate with aren't you? Have you been this way all your life? And what kind of relationship did you have with your Mother? Were you in fact squeezed out of a twat or did you crawl out of a test tube? BTW, the shit you cited are not facts, just more bullshit on the interwebz. Since Ronnie "Rubberhead" Raygun trashed the Fairness Doctrine and the Communications Act of '34, no one has to tell the truth anymore. And so, they don't. Big fucking whoop.

It's a matter of public knowledge. You can look it up on any source you trust.

Thus your claim that it is "unfounded" is itself unfounded. Checkmate.

But, just for the record, here's an example source:
