Nobody, no body, has a better handle on the good, the bad and ugly of Everglades politics and the South Florida Water Management District than the local Okeechobee newspaper, the Lake Okeechobee News. It's been that way ever since I can remember. The News is what community journalism is all about, and then some.

Many of us are concerned for the future of our republic. American politics has devolved into a divisive, hyper-partisan battle in which we spend more time launching personal attacks than focusing on solutions that make a real, positive impact on our lives and communities. Better and smarter governance requires putting truth at the forefront.
Blaise Ingoglia
