Editor's Note: Arrivals and departures are keeping us busy

    The first sea turtles are arriving and the first snowbirds are departing. 

    It’s been a record-breaking tourist season, and most locals have long ago surrendered to the sunburned hordes and no longer try to dine out on weekends or venture anywhere near a public beach.

    Even so, we’re pleased our friends in the hospitality industry are doing well. That reflects on our bottom line and we aren’t complaining.

    Still … once the last car carrier is loaded and…

Along the Coast: Limits in place on flood insurance rates, but other aspects uncertain

By Jane Smith

    An 18 percent annual increase in your flood-insurance premium is a hefty hike, but it beats the 25 percent that many coastal homeowners were facing.

    A new federal law caps increases at 18 percent for primary residences. Owners of second homes and business, though, still could pay 25 percent increases.

    The big jumps were intended to make the National Flood Insurance Program solvent after huge payouts from hurricanes Katrina in…

Along the Coast: Olive ridley turtle found Christmas Day is on the mend

By Cheryl Blackerby

    The little olive ridley sea turtle rescued on Lantana Beach on Christmas Day is on the road to recovery at Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

    “She was moved into a bigger tank because she had been bumping her head against the sides of the smaller tank she was in,” said Kat Rumbley, Loggerhead communications coordinator.  “This tank just gives her more room to swim.”

    Meghan is the only documented olive ridley found stranded…

South Palm Beach: Police department now at full staff

By Dan Moffett

    After a spate of hiring in recent weeks, the South Palm Beach Police Department is at full strength for the first time since last summer.

    During a period of rare turnover, the department lost its chief last fall when Roger Crane retired after 28 years on the job, and then lost a senior officer when Lt. Nick Alvaro called it quits in February. All told, four positions turned over on the eight-officer staff in the last nine…

    Council members reflected on the career and life of former Mayor Marty Millar, after word came from Lantana police that he had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on March 23.

    Millar, 67, served four years as a town councilman and two years as mayor until resigning in 2010 after admitting violating state ethics laws during a 2009 visit to a West Palm Beach strip club.
