Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“For The Nation is unique in American journalism for one thing: it is read by its enemies. They may damn it, they may have it barred from libraries, they may even–as they did during the war–try to have it put down by the Postoffice, but all the while thy read it. That is, the more intelligent of them–the least hopeless minority of them. It is to such minorities that the Nation addresses itself, on both sides of the fence. It has penetrated to the capital fact that they alone count–that the ideas sneaked into them today will begin to sweat out of the herd day after tomorrow.”

–From H.L. Mencken’s “Prejudices, Fifth Series.”Nixonland” (2008).

In Florida and in State Government:

Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.

COURTS REMAIN CLOSED IN HARD-HIT AREAS: State courts in the 14th Judicial Circuit will remain closed as Northwest Florida tries to recover from Hurricane Michael. The 14th Judicial Circuit is made up of Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties. Also remaining closed Monday will be Florida State University’s Panama City campus.

STARR SPEAKS IN PALM BEACH COUNTY: Ken Starr, who was the special prosecutor in an impeachment investigation of former President Bill Clinton, will speak at the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches. (Monday, noon, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Cohen Pavilion, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.)

SCOTT RECORDS DEBATED: The 1st District Court of Appeal will hear arguments in a public-records lawsuit about whether Gov. Rick Scott should be required to turn over his calendar to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has been locked in a battle with the state about Medicaid contracts. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson ruled Sept. 5 that Scott was required to turn over his calendar — including information about fundraising events and where the governor will reside at night — to the group. Scott appealed, and the 1st District Court of Appeal said it would expedite the case. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation filed the lawsuit in July after the Scott administration did not provide the requested calendar information in response to a public-records request. The request was made after the state Agency for Health Care Administration did not renew a five-year Medicaid contract with the foundation’s subsidiary, Positive Healthcare, to provide Medicaid services in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The Scott administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement argued that releasing the information could jeopardize the governor’s safety, but Dodson disagreed, noting it “simply is information regarding the governor’s travel schedule.” (Monday, 2 p.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)
