Congressman Brian Mast Evicted from WPB VA Hospital

first_imgCongressman Brian Mast joins Jen and Bill on the South Florida Morning Show to talk about being evicted from his office at the West Palm Beach VA hospital.Read his press release below.To Avoid Accountability, VA Evicts Veteran Congressman From Their FacilityOffice Has Met With More Than 500 Veterans At The West Palm Beach VA | Mast Opened First-Ever Congressional Office Inside VA FacilityWASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (FL-18) today slammed the Department of Veterans Affairs for evicting him and five other Members of Congress from offices they opened inside Department of Veterans Affairs facilities. Rep. Mast opened the first-ever Congressional office inside a VA facility in 2017, and the office has met with more than 500 veterans at the West Palm Beach VA since then. The office provides services to veterans, such as helping them with disability claims and benefits appeals. Unless the Department of Veterans Affairs reverses their decision, the office will be forced to close by the end of the year.“No other federal agency has been so plagued by crisis after crisis as the VA has, and apparently they will go to no end to avoid accountability,” Rep. Mast said. “Our space in the West Palm Beach VA is the size of a storage closet, but that hasn’t stopped us from meeting with and helping hundreds of veterans. The bottom line is that shutting down this office hurts veterans, who often don’t have the mobility to get to another Congressional office. Today the Department of Veterans Affairs chose to prioritize avoiding transparency and accountability over the veterans they are tasked with caring for.”Rep. Mast is urging the Department of Veterans Affairs to reverse their decision, which will impact the Congressional office at the West Palm Beach VA (staffed by Rep. Mast, along with Representatives Hastings [FL-20], Deutch [FL-22] and Frankel [FL-21]) and the Congressional office at the Orlando VA Medical Center (staffed by Representatives Soto [FL-9] and Murphy [FL-7]).Rep. Mast has also authored a bill, called the Improving Veterans Access To Congressional Services Act, to mandate the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide this space to Members of Congress so that they can assist veterans when and where they need the help. Rep. Mast testified about his bill earlier this week before the Veterans Affairs Committee, and he has also been a fierce advocate for greater accountability following several avoidable tragedies this year at the West Palm Beach VA.ABOUT BRIAN MASTCongressman Brian Mast is in his second term representing the 18th Congressional District of Florida. Prior to his election to Congress, Brian followed in his father’s footsteps by serving in the U.S. Army for more than 12 years, earning medals including The Bronze Star Medal, The Army Commendation Medal for Valor, The Purple Heart Medal, and The Defense Meritorious Service Medal. While deployed in Afghanistan, he worked as a bomb disposal expert under the elite Joint Special Operations Command. The last improvised explosive device that he found resulted in catastrophic injuries, which included the loss of both of his legs.While lying in bed recovering at Walter Reed Medical Center, Brian’s father gave him advice that has stuck with him to this day—to ensure the greatest service he gave to our country and the best example he set for his children was still ahead of him. Brian took this advice to heart and dedicated himself to finding new ways to serve our country and his community. As a Member of Congress, he opened the first-ever Congressional office inside a VA facility at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center so that he could help serve his fellow veterans when and where they need help.last_img read more

Springfest shuts down before headliner Rae Sremmurd takes stage

first_imgSpringfest 2017 was canceled Saturday night after crowds exceeded maximum capacity, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Department of Public Safety officers arrived on scene soon after the show’s cancellation to form a skirmish line.There were no life-threatening injuries, but at least one person was transported to the hospital, according to an LAFD statement.Hip-hop group Migos had begun performing their second song of the night, after their set had already been delayed for more than 30 minutes. One of the members of Migos’ team urged crowd members to step back and stop pushing one another and to leave the crowd area if they were in need of medical attention.Rae Sremmurd, the headliner of the event, did not take the stage due to the event’s cancellation.USC Concerts Committee explained the decision in the Springfest 2017 Facebook event page.“The decision to end Springfest early stemmed from a unanimous decision to keep students’ safety as our top priority,” it wrote. “While we are disappointed the event ended early, there was no other option. Thanks to everyone that came through; we appreciate your patience.”Students left on their own and were escorted by security personnel, according to the Department of Public Safety.Trevor Sochocki | Daily TrojanGrecia Vega, a sophomore majoring in accounting, said she was in the front of the crowd when people began to lose consciousness.“People just started passing out in my friend’s arms and suffocating,” Vega said. “We were trying to get people’s attention — no one was paying attention.”Vega said she had arrived early to beat the crowd, but once the concert started she said she felt unsafe.“It was super scary,” Vega said. “I thought people were going to stampede and that someone was going to die. A concert is not worth that.”Trevor Nielsen, a junior majoring in electrical engineering, was part of the crowd during Migos’ set and witnessed the concert shutting down. He said that ultimately the show’s cancellation was due to poor planning that could have amounted to audience members getting hurt.“Concerts Committee didn’t anticipate how large the crowd would be for Rae Sremmurd and Migos on the same night,” Nielsen said. “Honestly, the University made the right call shutting it down.”This post has been updated to include statements from DPS, LAFD and USC Concerts Committee.Allen Pham and Trevor Sochocki contributed to this report.Correction: A previous version of this article stated that the DPS riot squad was on the scene. There were no DPS or Los Angeles Police Department riot squads. DPS and LAPD officers were present in helmets and prepared to form a skirmish line.

Miramar Police Department Get Body Cameras

first_imgMIRAMAR, FL – The Miramar Police department will become the 103rd police department in Florida to equip its officers with body cameras. The move announcement comes six months after Commissioner Alexandra P. Davis made the motion to implement the program in the department.On March 27, 2019, Davis posed the implementation of a body-worn camera program for the Miramar Police Department. The motioned was seconded and a majority vote led to the long-awaited body camera program becoming law in the City of Miramar. The body camera program was first proposed by Commissioner Alexandra P. Davis back in 2014, with petitions being signed subsequent to this, but though a study was conducted the program never came to fruition.Days later, a pilot program was established that began with twelve officers to develop operational processes and policy for a full camera program.Last month, a workshop was convened with the Commission to present the proposal of a full program for consideration and approval. The proposal consisted of outfitting 147 first-line officers and sergeants with body-worn cameras for a five-year period with a cost of $2,501,746.52, with none of the initial funds coming out of taxpayer dollars but from the Police Trust Fund.The Commission approved the proposed program and funding sources for the five-year period. The Department has already procured the camera equipment and infrastructure items.“I am happy that our City has joined the other cities around the country in the utilization of body camera technology. This technology will further assist in providing transparency in our law enforcement efforts within our community,” said Vice Mayor, Alexander P. Davis.“Just recently during the pilot phase of the program, we were able to see the value of the body-worn camera by one of our officers. A situation that could have been made much worse had it not been for the quick actions of our officer and the fact that he was wearing the camera. In this instance, there was no loss of life and the suspect was identified and apprehended,” Vice Mayor goes on to say.The City Administration feels it is a win-win for the Department and the residents of the City.Chief Dexter Williams stated that he will be making a Public Service Announcement video regarding the implementation of body-worn cameras by officers, with the full implementation expected to be completed and underway by the end of September 2019 . The video will be posted on the Department’s website and will be pushed out through the Department’s social media platforms. Community Resource Officers will discuss the implementation of the program at HOA meetings over the course of the next few months.Additionally, Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis will be hosting a ‘CommUnity and Cops’ forum on October 22nd which will include discussions on many topics of Law Enforcement to include the use of body cameras.last_img read more

Miami Herald Ranks Jamaica Among Most Prepared for COVID-19

first_imgPRECIOUS TIMEThe stringent measures do have one clear benefit, however: They buy time.Jamaica has been using its measured response to buy ventilators, protective gear and hospital beds, explained Health Minister Christopher Tufton.“Early in the day we decided it was better to take fairly strong measures – starting with public education, and then graduating into other restrictions in order to at least contain it, even while we prepare our public health system to deal with the inevitable,” he told the Miami Herald. IS IT WORKING?Now, while Jamaica has *30* coronavirus cases, neighboring Cuba has 80 and the Dominican Republic has at least 580, according to Pan American Health Organization, PAHO.While health professionals say such draconian, isolating measures are the only true safeguard against a novel virus, it’s still too soon to tell if the strategy is truly working. KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica has been noted by South Florida’s Miami Herald newspaper among countries that were most prepared to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.The island joins a small hemispheric club that includes Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Peru and a handful of others that responded to the crisis with forceful measures that seemed excessive just days ago but now seem prescient.Jamaica was one of the first countries in the Caribbean to react to coronavirus, after seeing its first case on March 10. The country barred flights from hotzones, restricted the movement of tourists, enforced quarantines for all new arrivals and canceled school, among other measures. It also put part of an entire town, Bull Bay, on lockdown.last_img read more

Arsene Wenger eyes possible Bundesliga managerial switch

first_imgArsenal head coach Arsene Wenger has revealed that he would like to manage in the German Bundesliga if he does indeed opt to leave the north London club when his current contract expires this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.The experienced French trainer’s future at the Emirates is still in some doubt, with Wenger yet to have put pen to paper on the new deal that the club have put on the table for some time now.Wenger has always insisted though that he will keep his word and sign the new two-year contract shortly, with many expecting an announcement to be made on the matter just prior to the club’s FA Cup final against Hull City at Wembley Stadium later this month.However, if the 64-year-old does indeed opt to end his 18-year association with Arsenal at the end of the campaign, then Wenger could very well move to Germany to continue his illustrious coaching career.“If I was to go somewhere then I think it would be in a different country because I am so much Arsenal that I would not like to coach anywhere else in England,” Wenger recently said in an interview with BeIN Sports.last_img read more
