OPINION: As our country faces an unprecedented opioid epidemic that takes at least 115 lives each day, you may have noticed a new neighbor on your block.  Without fanfare or neighborhood notification, the house next door may now be a “sober home” or “recovery residence,” where multiple unrelated individuals in drug recovery live together in pursuit of sobriety. 
OPINION: Florida is known to be one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Given that fact, most Floridians know tourism is the main driver of the economy in the Sunshine State. What most aren’t aware of is that agriculture is a primary reason why Florida has a top 5 GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the United States. From citrus and vegetables to sugarcane and forestry, the agriculture industry employs over 2 million people and contributes $127 billion statewide annually. All this success was negatively impacted, however, when the Obama administration and the EPA broadened the clean water regulations and banned the industry’s most widely used pesticide.
