Saturday Editorial Page by Eye on Miami. By Geniusofdespair

We are still shocked that the Miami Herald is not doing a Saturday speak-up or Editorial Page. It is hard to fill in an opinion page when one has no opinions. Wait, I do have an opinion. Although ugly as shit on the outside, the Sapodilla is a very tasty fruit. It is similar to a pear with a cinnamon chaser.   I will have to fill this up with rumors again like last week.

I am proud that I was able to add graphics to make it look more professional.  Looking good Editorial Page!

One of the names on the masthead, I crossed out, might have put pressure on the Water and Sewer Department, through the Mayor, to not put a fire hydrant in front of his or her house. Are there any guys on that masthead? No big deal. Just a rumor. I heard the hydrant did not go in as planned. Press power!!! Yeah. Now what do I need done? Don't think the Mayor will help me out. I will have to put a call into Lebron, he still has clout. Could this story possibly be true, if it is this person should recuse him or herself from recommending a candidate for mayor in 2016.

The Mayor of Miami Dade is doing a lot of fundraising now, scared of the competition from  the X Man and Raquel Regalado. Step it up Carlos! You will need that bread. Xavier Suarez did a poll and he won by a landslide over Gimenez.

Juan Zapata wants to incorporate West Kendall as a new city. UDB, are you in trouble or what? Juan, Juan Juan! Talk to Julio Robaina (the good one). Save our Farms for growing Sapodilla Juan.
Also, the U of M school of medicine warns: Over the past several decades Miami-Dade County commissioners have approved extending the Urban Development Boundary farther west to allow for more suburban development. But researchers warn that the health risks associated with sprawl should be weighed in future decision making.

Eye on Miami closing up shop. Not enough comments to make it interesting. You lazy bastards.

More than 550 police killings recorded at the agencies from 2007 to 2012 didn't make it to the FBI's tally. Because the FBI's numbers are believed to be the most accurate available, the findings show it's next to impossible to get an accurate grasp on how many homicides, justified or otherwise, occur at the hands of police each year.

TV SECTION NEWS (didn't they get rid of that too over at the Miami Herald and they tried to make it sound like a good thing, make room for more page 6 news or something)
The only thing noteworthy is that the Walking Dead will resume February 8th with more walking dead bodies (thank God for that brain stem, we wouldn't have a show without it).

Hi, I do believe this is an excellent website. I stumbled upon it ;) I will come back once again since I book-marked it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to help others.

One of the tropical fruits you enjoyed is mamey. Glad you like it. It is the un-official national fruit of Cuba. The old timers tell stories of sitting on the porch after dinner while talking to the neighbors and eating mamey for dessert. It is actually a very important commercial crop here with several hundred acres in production. Many other Latinos enjoy the fruit and we would love to see it cross over to more Americans.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Better than the herald editorial page.

I admit it, I am one of them.

Pretty sad that the Herald is cutting important features that will cause it to lose more readers.

I understand they had to cancel the page because they fired so much staff. Why don't they just reprint press releases from the Chamber of Commerce and Tourism bureau on Saturdays?

Geniusofdespair said...

Why don't they just read it here?

Wednesday night will be a great forum. Watson Island super sizing? Gridlock?
By the way, Sarnoff chickened out. He canceled. Didn't want to seen to close to his buddy lobbyist Brian May?

Best story in the Herald today: There is justice in Miami. The good women of Overtown had enough of Renata Holmes disrupting meetings claiming to represent all black women for the cause of economic justice. When Renata tried to take over a meeting at the St Johns Baptist Church, they'd had enough. Six people jumped on her. One put her in a choke hold (who hasn't wanted to do that?) and another pulled her hair. Next time Renata barges into your meeting and tries to say she's there representing all black women of Miami, tell her "Not according to the women at St. John's". People in Miami have the right to orderly assembly without this militant fruitcake trying to commandeer every single meeting for her own self-aggrandizement.

I'm commenting so Eye on Miami doesn't fold! The Herald can just copy and paste your blog, donating a fee each week to do so!

You were way off topic, we don't print Herald stories in the editorial section. I included your link.

That's exactly what everybody trying to say when Renata set to taking over the meeting just like she always does. She is not the messenger because nobody trusts her to get their message delivered by her. She just talks about herself.

This is an editorial page if you want to write about your opinion on it fine - do not post links and stories from other papers. Give context then write what you think , not Crespo or Lewis.

One of the most important issues, that got lost in the scuffle with that dingbat, was the lack of enforcement in the provisions. That's the Miami story. Even when good intentions are stated in contracts and resolutions, the letter of the deal often allows a back door for non-compliance. It's important that Commissioner Hardemon steps up enforcement provisions rather than saying this is the best deal we've ever had, or it won't be when it's done.

Stop attacking the messenger. The issue isn't one woman and her behavior - it's the millions in tax giveaways to wealthy developers instead of taking tax monies from new condos and malls in historic Overtown and reinvesting in the community with improvements and community betterment. The CRAs are supposed to build affordable housing with the tax money, not give it to developers.

Glad Ms. Holmes Getting the community focused on this issue. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Editorial: Time to Revive County Charter Review Commission.

Every five years the Charter is required to be reviewed for consistency and effectiveness. Well, the last Charter Review Task Force was commandeered by the former Pinecrest Mayor to advance her own bizarre methodology for incorporation procedures. The fixation on incorporation made it impossible to advance any true reforms to correct a wide range of governance flaws.

To get ballot language worked up for the next General Election (November 2016), action needs to be taken now. Does this Strong Mayor system work? We think not.

Every department of county government is paralyzed with fear. There is no delegation to professional staff. Every memo requires the review and signature of our Mayor. The County is too big for this kind of single-person authoritarian rule. We need a more pluralistic governance model: executive mayor, manager and county commission to share power. It is time to convene a Charter Review Commission.

I'm confused. How did my name end up in any of this?

Herald Saturday Speak-Up & Editorials on this day the Herald could print some of its old editorials & comments (40 years ago) that might entertain us on history we didn't challenge and how we have the same problems today (water, sewer, Dadeland, once a tomato field, rapid growth without multi-lane streets, schools teaching the basics-- reading,WRTITING,arithmetic, CIVICS, American History,English
composition, all the good stuff
then & not today.

200 Overtown residents and a few pastors are mighty pissed at novice commish Keon Hardemon. They claim Keon diverted money meant to help Overtown to a couple of Ft Lauderdale based speculators. Al Crespo has the video tape.
