Gentle Ben has no business being in the mean world of politics. He’s just too much of a softie. His conservative party may want him to be a bit tougher, but that’s just not in his nature.

It’s Blind Item Time. See if you can guess the Broward notables! Did you know that Betty the blonde Broward politician is also a trained baker?

Just about every city in Broward County has an official website. The city website is a great source of information that saves them time and money by having important information available all in one place so residents can access it easily without contacting their staff.
