Mom to fight bullying with legislation

A grieving mother announced in November 2013 that she planned to convince legislators to create some new anti-bullying legislation after fellow students allegedly drove her daughter to commit suicide in September. This new legislation may mean big changes for students attending schools in major cities in Florida like Miami, Tampa and Jacksonville. The mother also plans to file wrongful death claims against the bullies as well.

Immigration changes affect military families

Florida is home to many people who serve in the armed forces, some of whom might be pleased by the recent directive issued by the Obama Administration that will allow some service members' relatives who live in the country illegally to stay. The new immigration rule clarifies when and how the already existing authority can be used. This was the latest in a number of changes to immigration policy made by President Obama since he took office in 2009.

Car accident on U.S. 19 leaves 38-year-old woman dead

A car accident on U.S. 19 in Florida resulted in the death of a driver on Nov. 11. According to the report, a 21-year-old man driving a Mazda Miata was traveling at a speed of more than 100 mph at approximately 3:15 a.m. when he slammed into the back of a Kia Sephia that was also heading north.

Same Florida intersection claims 2 lives in 1 week

A 27-year-old man who tried to evade the Florida Highway Patrol was identified as the driver of the car involved in a fatal accident at a San Carlos Park intersection on Nov. 6. The man was trying to evade police who had tried to pull him over near Broadway Avenue and U.S. 41 at about 3 p.m. for a tinted window violation. The 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier flipped over onto its roof after speeding away and driving over a raised median.

Senator Rubio pragmatic on immigration reform

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was a key member of the "Group of Eight" that crafted a bipartisan immigration bill in the Senate now says he favors the piecemeal approach favored by the leadership in the House of Representatives. The sticking point in the Senate bill is the proposed change in immigration law that would allow a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.

New immigration laws may bring together torn-apart loved ones

In Florida, family members who have immigrated to the United States may be able to find relief under pending federal immigration laws. Lawmakers in the House recently introduced legislation that would seek to bring together family members who were torn apart by past immigration law violations. A representative from Texas and one from New Mexico have put forth the legislation in the House. If the immigration law gains approval, then it may provide for greater unity among Democrats and Republicans.

How common are misdiagnoses?

When Florida residents go to a doctor, they usually expect to have their problem identified and a solution provided. While this happens in the majority of cases, a recent study found that a misdiagnosis occurs in approximately 10 to 15 percent of doctor visits when someone has a new problem. Even if a patient is eventually diagnosed correctly, the delay can lead to a rise in the cost of health care due to unnecessary tests and enabling the patient's condition to worsen by not treating it immediately.
