    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The dike keeping the nation's second-largest lake from overflowing has a high chance of failing in the event of another hurricane and poses "a grave and imminent danger," according to a state-hired panel of engineering experts. Gov. Jeb Bush said Tuesday he was worried about the report, which noted that the dike has a one in six chance of being breached in the event of a hurricane. Bush said he would discuss the findings, issued late Monday, in a meeting Tuesday with Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff and R. David Paulison, head of the Federal Emergency Management...

Jeb Bush delivers his State of the State address to members of the Florida Legislature on Tuesday in Tallahassee. AP Photo/Phil Coale "This is not a time for timid tweaks to the status quo.

    The parents of Terri Schiavo/Schindler just made an impassioned appeal to Florida Governor Jeb Bush to save their dying daughter. Mrs. Schiavo was obviously tired and spoke in a restrained manner, but her husband, Robert, although looking terribly fatigued, used very strong language and placed much of the blame for his daughter's seven days of "torture" directly on Jeb Bush, blaming him for the inaction that is letting Terri be murdered by a "tyrannical" judiciary. Mr.Schindler says that the Governor has the power to end their ordeal with a "stroke of the pen" and if he had courage he would...

    Before lawmakers in Florida allow Terri Schiavo, a mentally disabled woman who is fed through a tube, to be starved and dehydrated to death, they ought to take a careful look at the 2000 Census.  It explains why the Constitution compels them to keep fighting for Terri's life.  In 2003, a Florida judge decided Terri's estranged husband (who has two children by another woman) could disconnect her tube and kill her by starvation and dehydration. Gov. Jeb Bush persuaded Florida's legislature to enact a law allowing him to restore Terri's tube. But the law was narrowly cast: It applied only...

    TAMPA -- Terri Schiavo should undergo a new examination by independent medical experts to put to rest lingering questions on whether she has any hope of recovery, the University of South Florida professor who had been her court-appointed advocate said Tuesday. But before any tests are done, her warring husband and parents would have to agree to drop their legal fight in favor of whichever side the medical evidence supports, Jay Wolfson said in his first interview on the case since serving as Terri Schiavo's guardian ad litem. His comments come as the legal options of Terri Schiavo's parents have...

    I don't normally "do" vanities. Heck, I rarely post articles. But I absolutely have to get some attention to what Hurricane Ivane did to Pensacola and some of the nearby communities. The landscape has changed. Tens of thousands are now without homes or businesses. Roads needed for resupply are out. Power is out and food supplies for many miles are threatened. Grocery stores don't have power. Power may take weeks to restore, water 6 weeks or more.

    The big story out of Florida over the weekend was the tragic devastation caused by Hurricane Charley. But there's another story from Florida that deserves our attention. State police officers have gone into the homes of elderly black voters in Orlando and interrogated them as part of an odd "investigation" that has frightened many voters, intimidated elderly volunteers and thrown a chill over efforts to get out the black vote in November. The officers, from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which reports to Gov. Jeb Bush, say they are investigating allegations of voter fraud that came up during the...

    Persistent and Loyal Friends of Terri and of the U.S. Constitution, I'm home from today's hearing which was held at the Criminal Courthouse Complex on 49th Street, Clearwater before Judge W. Douglas Baird. Once I collect my thoughts from today's hearing which just adjourned about a half an hour ago, I'll post them here. Initially, I wasn't going to do any reporting re: the hearing but it was enlightening. I learned today in the hallway that Terri's parents, siblings and other relatives are still unable to see her some three weeks later due to the criminal investigation of what may...
  • Bush Appeals Judge's Refusal to Drop Out of Schiavo Case

    The Associated Press Published: Nov 21, 2003 CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Jeb Bush asked an appeals court Friday to disqualify a judge in the constitutional battle over a law that allowed doctors to reinsert a brain-damaged woman's feeding tube. The appeal came a day after Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge W. Douglas Baird refused to step aside as requested by Bush. The governor wants Baird off the case after he said at a hearing last week that the hastily passed law intruded on Terri Schiavo's privacy rights and was "presumptively unconstitutional." Schiavo's husband Michael has offered those arguments and is suing...

    The Washington, D.C.-based legal watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a motion of protection with the Florida Department of Children and Families that could give Gov. Jeb Bush a legal basis to order doctors to reattach Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. In a letter faxed to Bush's office Friday afternoon, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton wrote: "Based on our formal complaint via the faxed report referenced above, you have the authority and sufficient cause to immediately order the Florida Department of Children and Family Services to intervene on behalf of Ms. Schiavo; to restore her nutrition; and to initiate a full...

    Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Thursday that his legal team has been unable to find a basis for him to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo, who is expected to starve to death as soon as this weekend after her feeding tube was removed at the direction of her husband yesterday. "The legal office has been talking to people trying to find some strategy where my office can intervene in a different fashion that will yield a different result," Bush said Thursday. "So far we have not found that option." Gov. Bush's comments came before Schiavo's parents, Bob...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Kathleen Kearney brought a lot of hope to the Florida Department of Children & Families when she was appointed secretary in 1999. The department had been troubled for as long as anyone could remember, and Kearney -- a former prosecutor and judge and a "walking encyclopedia of child protection law" -- was one of the state's strongest child welfare advocates and a vocal critic of the department. But now she is the one under fire. The department has come under attack over two recent cases in which department workers allegedly lied about making visits to check up...
