Mama Mia Reply Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 I am a resident of Apopka for 8 years, and would like to find out what is being constructed on the East and West side of the new Florida Hospital.Thank you for your response to this.Laura Mc [email protected] Reply Reply The PCV13 vaccine protects against 13 strains of the bacteria or virus, not sure which. Then you go back 5 years later, and get a booster, so when you go back, they want to know which type of vaccine you got the first time. After the pneumonia happened to me, I got vaccinated back then. They said it would last a lifetime. Then I read where you need to get both kinds of vaccines, so I got the PCV13. They ask what other vaccines you have had recently. Some you cannot take too close together. My insurance covered it, but if you had to purchase it without insurance, it is high. But then again, my insurance is high!!! It is a rough shot, it smarts, and stays sore for days! I got mine at Publix pharmacy at Hunt Club. I plan on getting a whooping cough vaccine too. I almost typed whooping crane vaccine, LOL……bet they would look at me crazy if I asked for a whooping crane vaccine!!! I left the doctor’s office and was crying and drove as fast as I could to where my husband was working on the construction site and told him OMG the C Scan place thinks you have beaten and abused me! I told them no, no, no! He is as good as gold to me. He loves me, no, that I had been coughing so hard that it cracked my ribs. The doctor said well why do you have old fractures then. I told him I don’t know, but that I used to play golf a littlre and I remember whacking the driver once and I was in pain but thought it was a strained muscle in my side, but that I guess I had cracked a rib……..long story short, I did not have plursey, but instead had a bad case of pneumonia, plus 8 ribs cracked down both sides….eight on one side, and 8 on the other side, and my doctor believed me when I told him that my husband did not abuse me!!! It took me a long time to recoup. From Florida Hospital – Apopka September 13, 2016 at 4:42 pm September 13, 2016 at 4:50 pm Pneumonia. It’s a scary term, but you may not know much about its signs, symptoms, or what you can do to protect yourself against it.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 1 million Americans end up hospitalized each year due to pneumonia, with 50,000 dying from the disease. However, by taking time to educate yourself about the disease and its vaccine, you can avoid becoming part of these statistics. [Check out CME learning with micro-content for more on this.]We spoke with Anita Moorjani, MD, pediatric medicine specialist who works with graduate medical education at Florida Hospital, to break down what you need to know to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy.First of all: what exactly is pneumonia?“Pneumonia is inflammation or infection of the lung tissues,” explains Dr. Moorjani. The cause varies between age groups. In infants and young children, pneumonia is usually attributed to viruses like respiratory syncytial virus, commonly called RSV, metapneumovirus, or influenza. Children and adults may have “walking pneumonia,” caused by mycoplasma bacteria, which causes respiratory infections.What are the symptoms?Pneumonia symptoms differ based on the age of an infected person. Infants may suffer from fever, breathing and feeding problems, and full-body infection. In young children, there’s greater concern over the infection spreading to the blood or the brain. Adults and older children usually experience cough, shortness of breath, runny noses, chest tightness, and fevers.Typically, it takes around five days to recover from viral pneumonia, and about two to three days after starting antibiotics to recover from bacterial pneumonia.Who is the most at risk?“Anyone with a suppressed immune system has an increased risk of contracting pneumonia,” Dr. Moorjani says. This includes young infants and the elderly, as well as people on medications like cancer drugs or steroids. Unvaccinated children and patients with underlying heart and lung disease are also more at risk.How does the vaccine work? Do I need a vaccine?Dr. Moorjani explains, “The pneumococcal vaccine, or PCV13, is recommended by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics as part of a routine vaccine series starting at two months of age.”There are four vaccines total for maximum protection against the disease, and all are normally received within the first year of life, when children are at their highest risk for infection.Another vaccine, PPSV23, offers further protection against different strains of pneumonia.“This vaccine is indicated for children over age 2 who have high-risk conditions like sickle-cell disease, HIV, chronic renal disease, or immunodeficiency,” Dr. Moorjani says. Children with these conditions should receive both vaccines for protection against infection. Adults, age 65 and over, should also receive both PPSV23 and PCV13, as immunity to the disease can wane over time.“These vaccines are very safe,” Dr. Moorjani says. “The most common side effects are pain at the injection site and a mild fever for one to three days after the vaccination.” Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply I also still to this day, wonder what my mother died from. She had a bad cold a few weeks before she died, and she had been diagnosed with bronchitis and had been coughing very badly too. She and I had driven to CVS up town and I went in and got her some cough medicine that she wanted, and I came out with it, got in the car, and she told me if I live through this cold I have, I will be so happy. I told Mama that she would feel better when the weather warms up. It had been so cold. Well, she passed away at home during the night in her sleep, several days later, and I will always wonder if she had pneumonia too. I was starting to get sick right before she died, and I suspect that she had pneumonia too. I managed to get to the funeral was feeling better, thought I was okay, was getting dressed for the funeral, shaved my legs as normal, and then came out of the bathroom, and realized I must have cut my legs to pieces, as I must have had hundreds of cuts all over my legs and I could not get my legs to stop bleeding. I ended up wearing something other than my dress I had picked out, and wore pants. I felt like every time I breathed in and out that it felt like a knife sticking in me. The urgent care place said when I return back to Florida if I still was sick to go to the hospital. I could not even push the door to the truck open or open a convenient store door. It was horrible and I was still coughing and that was painful. I was told by relatives that maybe I had plursey, which they said was inflammation between the lining of the lungs. Yes, they said, you have it! Reply My husband took me to the hospital in Ocoee. They gave me more oxygen treatments, shots, and did x-rays, and sent me for C Scans. They sent the results to my doctor and he said he wanted to talk with me. I said okay. He asked if I had been domestically abused. I was floored and said, what???????? Why?????? He said that the lab techs that read the C Scans was ready to call the police, and then they called my doctor, and he told them to hold off, let me talk to her first. He said I had about 8 ribs cracked down one side, and about the same amount down the other side of my ribs…….plus old cracked ribs too. Oh my god……this was my worst nightmare, ever! My mother had died, I was very sick and in pain, and now they were ready to call the police, thinking my husband was abusing me! Mama Mia Laura McComas Hales September 13, 2016 at 8:28 pm September 13, 2016 at 4:27 pm I almost forgot the last part of my pneumonia experience. When I was at the Ocoee hospital and got treatment before I ever went to the C-Scan place…..I had a very large male doctor with big muscles. He was so nice to me, and told me he hoped I could get myself together emotionally, after my mother passed away, he talked to me about my mother, and he said that we are going to do everything we can to help you physically with your pneumonia, and we will see what is going on when they do the C-Scan and the results are read, and I wish you the very best, and hope you get well soon, and with that, he reached around me and gave me a strong tight bear hug and I thought I was going to die!!! He did not realize how much my ribs hurt, and his strength……I didn’t cry out or nothing like that, but OMG, it hurt!!! I told my husband on the way back home, I think the doctor cracked some more of my ribs. September 13, 2016 at 5:30 pm September 13, 2016 at 8:48 pm I got the PCV13 vaccination and will have to get another in five years. I now know that pneumonia is so dangerous. As I said my dad died from pneumonia plus other conditions. He had fluid built up on his lungs and was drowning in his own fluid, when he was taken to the hospital, and he died four days later, after going into a coma, and not coming out of it. If you even think you have pneumonia, go get checked out, and don’t mess around if you have a bad cough, fever, or sweating and then have freezing chills. Mama Mia Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate It took me longer than that to get over pneumonia! I had coughed so severely that I had to hold a pillow tight against my chest when I coughed. My clothes were wringing wet from sweating. I had a fever of 103. I was beginning to get “out of it” and then was taken to a urgent care and received oxygen treatment that seemed to last forever, I was freezing and had to breathe in and out holding my breath which was almost impossible. I had a shot in the rump of penicillin, and then left, they wanted me to go to the hospital and I said no, because this all happened out of state, when my mother died, and her funeral was the next day, and I said no, I am not going to a hospital and miss my mother’s funeral. They wrote me prescriptions for antibiotics and some of the strongest hydrocodone that only one pharmacy in the area even had it, and when my husband handed them the prescriptions, they said whooooo….that is strong, we will have to look and see if we even have that, and if we don’t no one else around here does have it. Reply Hillary has pneumonia and is planning on going back campaigning Thursday. How is that possible with pneumonia? She looks better than I did when I was sick with pneumonia, that’s all I have to say. I looked horrible, and felt worse than horrible! I probably couldn’t have even raised my arm up to wave, to people like she did, if I had wanted to. It was that bad! I remember sitting on my relative’s sofa, slumped over, and being out of my mind the night before my mother’s funeral, and wringing wet with sweat, and confused, and moaning, and my relative had made spaghetti with the fixings, and trying their best to get me to eat. I was like, oh god, no, no, and them insisting on me eating, and I was out of it, and moaning, and them patting me down with a cold wet washcloth on the forehead, and not even hardly knowing where I was, and asking me if I wanted a cocktail, or some dessert, or spaghetti……no, no, please, leave me alone, and just let me die.

Mr Rafferty said the information he had received was that Mr Rataj had passed away of a heart attack.While this has yet to be confirmed, it is known that the 56-year-old spent almost a fortnight in Altnagelvin’s cardiac unit when he suffered heart problems following the fatal collision.Mr Rafferty said that he was currently waiting on a death certificate to be forwarded by Mr Rataj’s son Eric.Once that is in his possession, Mr Rafferty said he intends to present at Omagh Magistrates Court. 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic News WhatsApp Facebook Facebook Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Twitter Google+ By News Highland – March 3, 2011 Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire
MCCAIG/iStock(HARRISONBURG, Va.) — A dog once thought to be lost to a fire in an apartment building in Virginia is now back with his grateful owner.On Thursday, a five-alarm blaze tore through a three-story apartment building in the Hills at Southview apartment complex in Harrisonburg, leaving dozens displaced, including James Madison University student Kayla Blake.Blake, who was not home at the time of the fire and who got the devastating call, told ABC News affiliate WHSV-TV that she was a “wreck” after hearing about her third-floor apartment and was particularly concerned about whether firefighters and first responders had rescued her dog, Rebel.She’d adopted Rebel three years ago from the Richmond Animal League, according to WHSV-TV.Blake said, however, that a K-9 unit had told her parents it was unlikely that Rebel had survived because of the flames, the smoke and the possibility that the floors had given way in the building.But two days later, when Blake and a friend returned to the complex to assess the damage, she heard a familiar and welcoming sound from a window: Rebel’s bark. She then called the police and fire department, she said.“Within a few minutes, you know, five, six minutes, one of the firefighters, I heard him yell, ‘We got him!’ And, he looked out the window and gave me a thumbs up,” she told WHSV-TV.Video from the scene posted to social media showed first responders carrying out Rebel as a crowd of onlookers cheered.The dog had reportedly been hiding under a desk and a James Madison University flag, an area of the apartment that had not been destroyed by the fire.According to WHSV-TV, Rebel suffered a burn on his nose and a few dropped pounds due to lack of food. Otherwise, a veterinarian had checked him out and determined him to be OK, Blake said.“He goes everywhere with me,” she said, “so he’s definitely gonna be a part of the part of my journey wherever I end up after this.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

View post tag: Naval USS Bonhomme Richard Leaves Sydney Share this article View post tag: Richard View post tag: Sydney Training & Education View post tag: USS View post tag: Bonhomme The forward-deployed amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) departed Sydney Aug. 20 after a four-day port visit.During the visit, Sailors and Marines participated in community relations projects, friendly sport events with the local teams, and multiple tours offered by Bonhomme Richards’ Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department.Twenty personnel from Bonhomme Richard visited the Calvary Health Care Center as part of a community relations project and assisted the staff in providing care for the elderly.“I have been volunteering my whole life,” said Aviation Maintenance Administrationman 2nd Class Timothy Lee. “I always love lending a helping hand.”The crew also experienced Sydney through MWR tours designed to highlight recreational opportunities in the city.“We sponsored the Blue Mountains and Sydney Opera house tour,” said David Glazier, Bonhomme Richard’s fit boss. “There was a great turnout and we received positive feedback from the participants.”Sailors and Marines also competed in a friendly game of softball against a local softball team at Captain Cook Oval field and conceived a victory.“I think it was a great experience for the Bonhomme Richard softball team to play a game with some of the Australian locals,” said Damage Controlman 1st Class Christopher Gamez, Bonhomme Richard’s softball team captain. “It wasn’t about who won or who lost. We had the opportunity to talk, and in some cases teach, all the different aspects of the game. It was a very rewarding experience.”The port visit was the first opportunity for Bonhomme Richards’ crew to explore Sydney since it began operating in the 7th Fleet Area of Responsibility as the flagship of the only forward-deployed Amphibious Ready Group (ARG).“My first port visit to Sydney was great,” said Personnel Specialist 2nd Class Anthony Fano. “I hope we have the opportunity to visit this amazing city again. Overall it was a good time spent with friendly locals and my fellow shipmates.”Bonhomme Richard’s crew also hosted a reception for distinguished guests and gave tours of the ship to Australian nationals.“It made me proud to be able to show off Bonhomme Richard to the Australian locals,” said Interior Communications Specialist 2nd Class Jacqueline Snow. “They were really excited to see the equipment and spaces throughout the ship.”The Bonhomme Richard ARG is commanded by Capt. Cathal O’Connor, commodore, Amphibious Squadron 11 and reports to the Commander, Amphibious Force 7th Fleet, Rear Adm. Jeffrey A. Harley, headquartered in White Beach, Okinawa, Japan.[mappress]Press Release, August 23, 2013 View post tag: Defence View post tag: Navy View post tag: Leaves View post tag: Defense Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Bonhomme Richard Leaves Sydney View post tag: News by topic August 23, 2013

Back in 2015, Admiral de Giorgi, Italy Navy Commander in Chief, pointed to the possibility of Italy buying another two boats. Furthermore, defense ministries of Germany and Italy in March 2017 signed a Memorandum of Understanding to extend their cooperation in the field of submarine operation and construction, after Germany announced it would build further two boats in the class, bringing the number of units in service to eight.Romeo Romei has a surface displacement of 1,509 tonnes and an overall length of 55.9 meters. Crewed by 27 persons, the submarine can reach speeds of 16 knots. It is equipped with a silent propulsion system based on fuel cell technology (also known as air-independent propulsion AIP), producing energy through an oxygen-hydrogen reaction, independent therefore from external oxygen, ensuring a submerged range three to four times higher than the conventional battery-based systems.

Load remaining images Photo: Bill McAlaine While Phish has visited Madison Square Garden the most over the past eight years, no run has been more consistent than their annual Labor Day Weekend stint at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park outside Denver, CO. After a couple of weeks to mourn the cancellation of the highly-anticipated Curveball festival, the band came out ready to relieve their stress all over the sold-out Commerce City crowd.“Free” started the weekend off right as fans crammed into the packed arena. Mike Gordon added some extra chunky bass thumps to the classic breakdown before Trey Anastasio, instrumentally inviting the capacity crowd to “come on join the party dressed to kill” with teases of The Who’s “Eminence Front” throughout. Taking the second slot was the curiously placed “Harry Hood,” making its earliest appearance in a show since it opened the band’s 20th-anniversary performance on 12/2/03 in Boston. The jam was patiently piled high with Page McConnell’s full spectrum of keys and finished off strong with Trey bringing the effects to soaring heights, leaving the entire crowd feeling good about what was to come.Phish – “Free” [Pro-Shot][Video: LivePhish]The spacey and tranquil “What’s The Use?” from The Siket Disc was gently placed into the already-enticing setlist for the third year in a row at Dick’s. When Trey blurted out “Blaze On, Leo!” during the “Blaze On” that followed, the Centennial State audience ate it up like an edible from one of the many recreational weed shops in the area. Trey, a.k.a. Big Red, relied on the delay effect to get the blaze roaring during the first half of this smoking rendition. The 12-plus minute “Blaze On” was accented by Chris Kuroda’s lighting magic, periodically holding the high beams over the energetic field of fans to let the band enjoy scene from their perch on the stage.Phish took a moment to discuss the next tune, leading some note-takers to assume that the fifth song might be a new cover or, perhaps, a debut original. Instead, it yielded something even better: a 15-minute, first-set “Ghost”. During the initial Type II jam, Page and Mike bounced their notes back and forth, giving way to brief “Under Pressure” teases by Trey.The second half of “Ghost” grew wings as the foursome collided into some speedier funk, capped off with a gorgeous transition into “Crosseyed and Painless”, a tune that made a big showing as the centerpiece of a tease-filled show in its last Dick’s trip in 2016. The two songs melted together so fluidly, it nearly seemed like this would stand as merely a tease. However, to the surprise of the arena, “Crosseyed” sat comfortably in Set 1 for the first time since 8/13/97 at Star Lake Amphitheatre. Where “The Great Curve” follows the Talking Heads original on the Remain in Light album, Phish’s symbolically-driven “Simple” took its place, reminding fans in Colorado that they may not have had a Curve, but they’ve still got a band. The classic set ended with the recognizable “Cavern” getting some bonus bass from Mike, a man that definitely knows how to take care of his shoes.On night one, Phish continued their Summer 2018 trend of hammering home extremely powerful first sets, leaving fans to ponder what could possibly happen during Set 2. “Exposed to all the elements,” Phish returned to the stage hitting dingers during a set-opening “No Men In No Man’s Land”. Page stood up to rock the Clavinet as Mike carved some meaty grooves around Trey’s fuzzy MuTron effects.Phish – “No Men In No Man’s Land” [Pro-Shot][Video: LivePhish]“Carini” fluttered into outer space next with a focused and passionate guitar solo accented by Page’s ambient synth. A familiarly blissed-out expedition became the theme here, as it has in many of the song’s recent outings this year. Trey held onto notes like it was the last time he would ever play, and the crowd held on with him. If there was one thing the Phish community learned from Curveball’s unfortunate debacle, it was to not take anything for granted. The band certainly seemed to be living in the moment as they built upon Jon Fishman’s swift shift in momentum, bringing the jam to a colossal peak before fizzling out into “Theme From The Bottom”.A clean and well executed “Theme” gave way to an otherworldly “Mercury”, yet another song with an impressive Dick’s pedigree. Nearly an hour into the set and four songs deep, this planetarium of a jam was propelled by Mike’s groovy bass which set up the stepping stones for Page to fill in the spaces with precision. Phish was playing with a wide-eyed, childlike energy—which might explain the “Young Lust” teases seductively tossed into the end of the jam.The band took their time with the set-capping 18+ minute “Light”, reminding skeptics that the Joy songs can rip, especially in Commerce City (remember this D-Light-ful version from 2012?). Page took to the organ to warm up a Caribbean-influenced interlude, eventually spawning “Gotta Jibboo” teases. A fearless Fishman was the silent killer in this one, igniting the band and closing on the 5-song set in fiery fashion.After a brief encore break, Page took to the Clavinet for “Martian Monster” while Mike tossed thick, syrupy grooves into the Chilling Thrilling favorite. Fishman hacked away on the blocks to calm the short and sweet Disney sampler down before Trey loaded up the cannon and brought the crowd to a frenzy. “Julius” put the exclamation point on a show that is easily one of the best of 2018 thus far.An old-school first set that that gave way to a five-song second set took Colorado by storm. On paper, this uniquely designed set list will hopefully bring happiness to heartbroken Curveball ticket holders that are still waiting for their refunds. Hold onto your dicks, nights two and three are soon to follow.Setlist: Phish | Dick’s Sporting Goods Park | Commerce City, CO | 8/31/18Set 1: Free > Harry Hood, What’s the Use? > Blaze On, Ghost -> Crosseyed and Painless > Simple > CavernSet 2: No Men In No Man’s Land > Carini > Theme From the Bottom > Mercury > LightEncore: Martian Monster > JuliusA full soundboard recording of the show is available via LivePhish.
Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer Notre Dame senior Lindsay Allen orders dinner at the new Jimmy John’s location on Eddy Street onSunday. The restaurant joins other chains such as Chipotle and Five Guys.Tyler Grummel, first assistant at Jimmy John’s, said the restaurant’s new location was chosen largely due to its increased proximity to Notre Dame’s campus — with the restaurant’s location on Michigan Avenue formerly being closest to campus — and takes Domer Dollars to account for added student business.“We’re closer to campus and we wanted to increase business that way,” Grummel said. “This store, especially, is mainly Notre Dame-based clientele [and] we take Domer Dollars over the phone and at the registers. We’re getting a lot more business because of that, too. We got it every so often at the other store, but now people are coming in almost every day and paying with Domer Dollars.”Sophomore Alex Daugherty said he is excited to have a Jimmy John’s within walking distance that also delivers to campus.“I am really excited about having one on Eddy Street that I can just walk to because I definitely wouldn’t have walked downtown or I’d call it to have it delivered,” Daugherty said. “If it’s going to be a nice day then I won’t mind walking over, but … if delivery time is going to be a lot faster than it was from downtown, then I’m definitely going to have it brought to the door [when it’s cold].”The new location has already seen an increase in business since students have returned to Notre Dame for the start of a new school year, Grummel said, and despite being within walking distance of campus has continued to receive many delivery orders from students.“Ever since the students got back there’s definitely been an increase, especially on the night side with foot traffic and deliveries to campus,” he said. “I think because we’re closer and we can get there even faster now [delivery has] grown because we can actually live up to the ‘freaky fast’ standard.”Junior Jennifer Mulvey said she is happy to see another different addition to Eddy Street and is likely to make the walk over to Jimmy John’s instead of placing an order for delivery because of the short distance from campus.“I’m really excited [about it],” Mulvey said. “I’d probably walk over versus order. We have a Subway on campus, which is kind of similar, but if you’re walking to Eddy Street I think that’s kind of a unique one for Eddy Street.”Daugherty echoed Mulvey and said he’s happy to see a simple and fast sandwich option added to Eddy Street, something he believes was missing in the past. Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer Senior Grace Watkins and 2015 alumnus Alex Caton share a meal at the new Jimmy John’s location on Eddy Street. The new location opened between the Hammes Bookstore and Blaze Pizza on June 22.“There wasn’t really a basic sandwich option,” he said. “You have Bar Bici, which is really specialized, and Chipotle of course, [and] I don’t count McAlister’s [Deli] because McAlister’s feels more sit-down than carry-out, where Jimmy John’s is kind of a niche that wasn’t filled yet.”The restaurant, which serves “fresh gourmet sandwiches” according to its website, remains open until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, Grummel said, due to the high amount of business the new location attracts because of foot traffic to and from bars on Eddy Street.“Because we’re between the two bars we get a big rush right as we’re closing at night [so] we are open until 3 a.m.” he said.Grummel also said the restaurant is always looking to hire new workers to keep up with the evening rush if any Notre Dame students are interested in an off-campus job.“Right now we’re just mainly focusing on [hiring] more night staff,” he said. “We always have a nice flow of people coming and going because we do have a lot of students work for us, so in the summertime they move away and don’t always come back and then it switches off.”Tags: Eddy Street, Eddy Street Commons, Jimmy John’s While new additions such as Dunne Hall, Flaherty Hall and Smashburger were being unveiled on Notre Dame’s campus over the summer, a new Jimmy John’s location also opened on Eddy Street between the Hammes Bookstore and Blaze Pizza.
Gary Blankenship Senior Editor A proposed constitutional amendment that would do away with all judicial nominating commissions, require appellate judges up for retention to get a two-thirds approval rate, and dismantle The Florida Bar has been proposed in a rewrite of Article V introduced in the Florida House. HJR 627, by Rep. Fred Brummer, R-Apopka, would allow the governor to fill directly all appellate vacancies with the consent of the state Senate. It would also set a two-year minimum limit on writs of habeas corpus and give the legislature vastly increased powers over court procedural rules. And those are only some of the changes in the 36-page measure. Bar President Herman Russomanno said many of the changes in bill are “troubling” and some of the proposals would have the state revert to systems and practices which were purposefully changed decades ago to provide accountability and remove politics from the system. “Floridians expect fairness and impartiality in the court system and their expectations are justified and attainable,” Russomanno said. “But the efforts to stampede the judicial branch and the legal profession with unwarranted changes such as those proposed in HB 627 are completely contrary to what Floridians clearly want.” Bar President-elect Terry Russell said the bill ignores several past problems with the judiciary and court system that the current constitution fixes. “It’s regressive,” he said. Tallahassee attorney Barry Richard, the Bar’s outside counsel, said the overall effect of the proposal would be to increase the influence of politics in the court system. “This resolution would set our state back 100 years,” Richard said. “It would remove all checks on the politicization of judicial selection, place incumbent judges at the whim of the legislature or any groups of persons dissatisfied with a particular decision, and significantly reduce the independence of the judiciary, a critical element in the maintenance of a just and democratic society,” Richard said. The Bar has also picked up indications that the House Committee on Judicial Oversight could consider Brummer’s bill early in the Regular Session, which opened March 6 as this News went to press. At deadline, no companion bill had been introduced in the Senate. As a constitutional amendment, it must get a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate before it can be submitted to voters next year. Russomanno also said in many respects the Bar was “stunned” by the bill, particularly in that it addresses many issues studied extensively by legislative directive in recent years by the 1995 Article V Task Force, the 1997-98 Constitution Revision Commission and the 2000-01 Supreme Court Workload Study Commission. HJR 627 makes changes throughout Article V. One provision appears aimed at Secretary of State Katherine Harris’ actions in last year’s disputed election that were challenged in court. A new subsection (b) in Section 1 provides that there must be some legal or equitable claim for a court to issue a quo warranto writ. It also limits cases when those writs could be used, which apparently would drastically limit citizens’ ability to challenge a public official’s action in court. The language specifically provides: “The power to issue a writ of quo warranto does not establish power to review any right, power or duty of a public official other than the right to hold the particular office claimed by such official, and the writ of quo warranto shall not be used for any purpose except to test a person’s authority to continue holding an office when challenged by competing claimant to such office.” The section would also allow the legislature by law to set a statute of limitation on the writs. Other sections on specific courts’ powers affect habeas corpus writs. The amendment adds language that judges may issue the writs “provided that such writs are subject to statutes of limitation of not shorter than two years from the final judgment or mandate on direct appeal in a criminal case.” Judicial Restraint Several other sections are aimed at restricting the power and activities of the courts. Section 1 would have language added that, “Subject to any additional limits in this constitution, the jurisdiction of such courts shall extend only to actual cases in law, equity, admiralty and maritime jurisdiction, and to actual controversies arising under the constitution and the laws of the State of Florida and of the United States.” Richard noted that could be read to eliminate the court’s authority to issue declaratory judgments and also to exercise oversight of the practice of law. The legislature also would be given power in that section to designate that a district court of appeal could exercise statewide jurisdiction “respecting any subject matter granted. . . by general law.” Richard said this provision could be read that the legislature could assign a matter to a DCA to the exclusion of the Supreme Court. Some observers have suggested the legislature could use the section to create a statewide court of criminal appeals. Court procedural rules “may not be inconsistent with statutes in place at the time of adoption of such rules, shall be revised to conform to subsequently adopted statutes that regulate substantive rights, and may be repealed by general law. Rules adopted pursuant to this section shall neither abridge, enlarge, nor modify the substantive rights of any litigant, but additional rulemaking power may be expressly delegated to courts by general law.” Richard noted that language eliminates the distinction between substantive and procedural rules and allows the legislature to write court rules. He said there has not been any criticisms or problems with rules that would justify such a change. Dropped from the constitution would be a provision requiring a two-thirds vote of both the House and Senate to override a court rule. The court would be allowed to issue advisory opinions on the request of the attorney general or governor, but opinions issued at the request of the governor “shall not be binding upon any party not voluntarily participating in such proceeding.” The measure would also limit the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to items enumerated in the constitution, including judicial discipline. Section 9 of Article V would be rewritten. Currently, when the Supreme Court certifies the need for new judges or to reduce judges, the legislature can change the number, but it requires a two-thirds vote. The bill would simply allow the legislature to set the number of judges by law, including the number in each circuit and county court. The Supreme Court would be able to make recommendations on increasing or decreasing the number of judges and also on changing the district and circuits. The proposed revision did keep the number of Supreme Court justices at seven. Retention Upped Section 10 would be changed to require that Supreme Court justices and district court of appeal judges get a two-thirds “yes” vote in their merit retention referenda. That could have a potentially devastating impact on the First District Court of Appeal and substantial impacts on other appellate courts. While all three First DCA judges on last November’s ballots would have been retained, it would have been very close if they were retained with 68 to 69 percent of the vote. However, all six judges on the 1998 merit retention ballot and all four on the 1996 ballot would have lost, as they garnered 63 to 64 percent “yes” votes less than the 66.67 required in the proposed amendment. Results from 1994 were not immediately available, but in 1992, all six First DCA judges on the ballot would have lost, as well as all five on the ballot in the Fifth DCA and two in the Second DCA. In 1992, there was organized opposition to then Chief Justice Rosemary Barkett and she wound up with 60.9-percent approval a landslide by most standards, but not enough under the bill. In addition, the other three justices on the ballot Justice Major B. Harding and former Justices Ben F. Overton and Parker Lee McDonald would have fallen short of the two-thirds vote, by one to less than two percent. As Richard noted, “Judges, who among public officers should be the least sensitive to public opinion, would be made more subject to the sway of public sentiment than executive or legislative officers.” Trial judges would remain elected, but midterm vacancies, as well as all vacancies on the appellate courts, would be filled directly by the governor without using judicial nominating commissions. Those appointments would be subject to “the advice and consent of the Senate.. . . ” The Article V provisions setting up the JNCs and governing their actions would be stricken under Brummer’s measure. The bill provides that if the Senate is not in session when the appointment is made and does not call itself into session to consider a nomination within 30 days, then the nomination is deemed approved. If the Senate is in session and fails to confirm a nominee within 30 days, then the nomination is rejected, unless Senate rules allow for an exemption. If judges find their jurisdiction and powers limited, they could become more politically active. Brummer’s bill would constitutionally override judicial canons that prevent judges from becoming involved in partisan politics or expressing their views on issues likely to come before them on the bench. The bill specifically provides, “No judicial rule of conduct or other court rule may limit the political rights of candidates for election or appointment to judicial office, including, but not limited to, serving a political organization, endorsing or opposing other candidates for public office, making speeches, attending political functions, or making statements with respect to issues; however such limits consistent with other provisions of this constitution may be imposed by general law.” The amendment, while not mentioning it by name, would do away with or substantially reduce The Florida Bar by changing Section 15. That revised section would allow the legislature to assume at least some oversight of the profession. The section provides that the Supreme Court would have exclusive jurisdiction over admission and discipline for those practicing, according to a new phrase added to the section, “before the courts of this state.” Also added to the section is this provision: “The cost of such regulation and discipline shall be funded by appropriations, disciplinary penalties, and fees paid to the Supreme Court as authorized by general law. No attorney may be required to pay dues to any organization and no fees may be otherwise assessed by the court as a condition to admission to practice law before the courts of this state. The professional practice of law other than before the courts of this state may be regulated by general law.” “This provision would eliminate the Bar as an arm of the Supreme Court and make the court’s ability to regulate [the] practice [of law] entirely dependent upon the willingness of the legislature to fund the regulation,” Richard wrote. With the Judicial Qualifications Commission, the Bar’s four lawyer appointments would be taken away and given to the legislature. Among other changes proposed in Brummer’s bill are: • An addition to Section 14 that, “Any prevailing party in any civil proceeding or any defendant convicted in any criminal proceeding may be assessed, as provided by general law, the full cost of all services utilized and expenses incurred in such proceeding as determined by the clerk of the circuit or county court, to the extent that such services or expenses are provided by appropriations, fees, or service charges.. . . Such assessments may be enforced as any money judgment or tax obligation.” • An addition to Section 3(b)(5) that when a case is certified to the Supreme Court as being of great public importance, “the district court’s jurisdiction shall be retained unless and until the Supreme Court issues an order accepting jurisdiction.” • The opt-in, opt-out merit selection plan for trial judges added to the constitution in 1998 by voters would be stricken. (That was a two-part process. The voter approval in 1998 set up a referendum in every circuit and county last November, on whether voters wanted to continue electing their trial judges or switch to a merit system. a decisive margin in every jurisdiction, voters chose to continue with elections.) • A provision of Section 14 that says courts have no power to fix appropriations would be changed to read that courts “have no power to fix or order any modification of appropriations.” • The requirement that one Supreme Court justice come from the jurisdiction of each of the five district courts of appeal would be removed. • The section that allows retired judges over the age of 70 to sit in temporary assignments would be removed. • Various requirements to hold law-related offices, such as judgeships, or elected state attorneys or public defenders, would remain unchanged except that those office-holders would not be required to be Florida Bar members. Instead they would have to be “authorized to practice law in Florida.” House bill would rewrite Art.V H ouse bill would rewire Art. V March 15, 2001 Senior Editor Regular News
