I agree with the immediate tax hit on his bonus, although many companies withhold a flat rate of 28 percent, so it’s possible that the federal withholding was only $27,160.

It has taken more than four years, for justice to reign over Palm Beach County’s fight to enforce the people’s wishes to fully fund our inspector General. Judge Catherine Brunson in no uncertain terms said, “The people are the municipalities, and the officials who represent the people may not undermine the electorate process because they disagree with the vote of more...
