Community section….Broward Days to visit legislators

with less money coming in …the need to merge the private sector in business with government/political will make Broward Days even more important…

what is Broward Days?…check out the website…www.browarddays.com

a full description of what Commissioner Clottey… Vice Mayor McIntee and Mayor Minnet …and whoever else joins them will be involved in…

if you recall at the 2nd meeting in Feb. the Mayor announced she would be attending and would give us all a full report upon her return…this did not sit well with her fellow commissioners…and at the next meeting fellow commissioners announced they would also be in attendance…as is proper…for the Mayor is not a single representative for the commission or the town… unless designated by the dais…she has equal standing in these situations…

front section…

Online political action can spark offline change..

web sites and blogs give critics of legislation the tools to rally forces against what they view as bad bills…

between you tube…and blogs the word gets to those in charge and play an increasing role in shaping policy and opinion…

Mapping Coral Reefs…

a repeat of an previous post …..  views from this special camera off the coast of Puerto Rico…still important …but a concern about sentinel continuing to recycle stories…

Broward and State…

Lake levels rising in dry season…

the lake is still low…but a light at the end of the tunnel….no more lowering it…see agenda ..for 4/8/08….Resolution…and previous posts…

Broward looking to create an ethics watchdog panel…

a little- noticed proposal by the Broward Charter Review Commission could force a vote in November on creating a local commission to to write a code of ethics to regulate commissioner’s behavior….

a hearing on this and 12 other changes will take place at 1 pm on Wed. at the Broward County Governmental Center or you can see it on cable or at….www.broward.org

Front Section…

The Internet

Message boards a platform for grief, pain…

internet users are living out their private moments through online forums….people getting the word out…some with purpose…some with ulterior motives…as stated in previous posts…the “comfort” of anonymity…. which is real or not… more examples of blog forums that is an ongoing experiment….

Looks like the link is back up?…

still in need of my web guy to filter out other surprise changes in the program I use to post…

someone thought it would be great to “improve” things…result…what was easy…basic and took one “click” now calls for searching…and at least 3 “clicks…

reminds me of a story the bcbythesea hubby used to tell about his grandfather…

when the first digital watches came out….he looked at it…. as it was shown to him to marvel and admire….his response…”Oh great, now you have to use 2 hands to see what time it is!”…the first of these watches did indeed require the wearer to hold down a button to see the time!…

I know how he felt…

please bear with me while I use “2 hands” to figure out the “improvements” thrust upon me by my site designers….
