Officials in one of Florida’s most populated counties are trying to fix a ballot question about a proposed school tax that was inaccuartely translated into Spanish on voter ballots. The issue came to light when a Spanish-speaking voter contacted the South Florida SunSentinel. Voters are being asked to double the tax rate to help cover costs of teacher raises, hiring of more school security staff and the bolstering of mental health programs. The proposal increases the tax from one mill  — which is about $50 per $100,000 in home value — to a full mill. The Spanish version translated “one mill" to “one million."

Greece’s coast guard says a search and rescue operation is continuing for a third day for migrants reported missing after their boat capsized south of the Greek island of Rhodes. The coast guard says a Greek frigate and three merchant ships are searching areas south of Rhodes and southeast of Karpathos. A total of 29 male survivors were picked up by a merchant ship and a Greek air force helicopter in the early hours of Wednesday after the boat sank. Survivors initially indicated 60 to 80 people had been on board. But that figure was later revised and the coast guard said Friday that a total of 50 to 60 people were now believed to have been on board.

An unprecedented drought is afflicting nearly half of the European continent and is damaging farm economies, forcing water restrictions and threatening aquatic species. Water levels are falling in major rivers such as the Danube, the Rhine and the Po. There hasn't been significant rainfall for almost two months in Western, Central and Southern Europe. The government in Britain officially declared a drought across southern and central England on Friday amid one of the driest summers on record. Human-caused global warming is exacerbating conditions as hotter temperatures speed up evaporation, thirsty plants are increasing their moisture intake and reduced snowfall in the winter is limiting supplies of fresh water available in the summer for irrigation.

The Seattle Department of Transportation said Thursday the West Seattle Bridge will open Sunday, Sept. 18. The Seattle Times reports the date is the most specific milestone set by the city since the bridge closed over two years ago because of safety concerns. The city previously set the week of Sept. 12 as its window for reopening the bridge but acknowledged possible unanticipated hiccups. The 40-year-old bridge is among the city’s most important, previously allowing 100,000 drivers and 20,000 transit users to move between West Seattle and the rest of the city each day.
