BARRY WON ANOTHER ROUND….

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/legislature/sfl-0814taxswap,0,4199307.story

The judge decide…that the legislature did indeed try to mislead in their 75 words presented to voters in November…and chose to strike it from from the ballot….

It gave “clear but inaccurate impression “that the legislature would replace the lost funds for school permanently…when the actual intention was only for a year….

Look for an appeal…..

WHERE’S THE SIDEWALK…

Nope not Seagrape/Washintonia this time…it’s El Mar….harrowing really to try and make it to town….yesterday particularly…with both sides closed…leaving pedestrians to walk directly into the oncoming traffic….

Commissioner Dodd paid a visit to Minto…who described an unexpected problem with the water connection on the east side….eventually assigning personal…to assist those in need…stuck in the middle of this obstacle course….

BCBythesea…hears that Oceen Reverie is parking on A1A side… they are headed up towards the High Noon any day…. …those hoteliers feel Minto is doing an organized …manageable first rate job….nice to hear from those in the thick of things……..

Guess if it alleviates the standing water problem…it will be worth the mess…..

MORE OLD “STANDARDS” CHANGE….

The Sun-Sentinel will debut…this Sunday…bold and bright…condensed…with an “S”…and no more hyphen as previously posted….

Yesterday in the mail…. another familiar standard has gone by the wayside….UPS bills are now white…gone is the familiar golden yellow….

AT&T…changed their bill last month….and QWest…cut itself down to a fourth of the size a few months before that….the printers…and logo companies must be smiling….

WE MADE THE PAPERS….BLUE MOON FISH CO.

Looks yummy….

EVERGLADES RESTORATION

For the “greater good”….the tribes will be on hold for a “reasonable amount of time…while the bigger environmental picture…is addressed….although…we might not see that greater environmental picture in our lifetime….

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR COMMISSIONERS ARE?……

Looks like Vice Mayor McIntee is enjoying his turn at the Florida League of Cities Convention…..at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel….

BCbythesea…familiar ground for this writer as the BC younger daughter lived across the water from the hotel for a year….

It’s an island…overbuilt too fast…extensive sewer problems…leaving the condos…like the one she resided in with a strict toilet paper policy of how much could be used each flush!….An aroma abounds from time to time as you wonder around the venues….from sewage….and a big problem just outside the island with homeless in the parks….no height restrictions here….every inch is high rise….with more on the way pre-downturn 2 years ago….a “replica” the now defunct Las Olas Riverfront complex….. a great trolly service…and the beautiful Bay Shore Drive…on Tampa Bay……with grand ….beautiful homes….that take your breath away….

Are any other LBTS elected officials also in attendance?…We know….Commissioners Clottey and Dodd are in LBTS…

Some info on the FLC….what the Vice Mayor and others will be doing….

Big question is…will the Vice Mayor and others attend the Waste Management Soiree?….

Let the decadence begin…..an example of what might be awaiting our officials……..HMMM….

Rosa …should have some questions…when Waste Management comes to the podium….
