I am writing this piece as the Chairman of the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce and also as a citizen of the great City of Coral Springs.
There have been a great many articles written as well as campaigning about whether Coral Springs needs a new municipal complex and downtown region. From all I have seen, there is very little argument about whether or not we need a new city hall. If you have spent any time in our current city hall north (city hall south is already gone) it is an embarrassment.

I finally saw Enlightened. It took me a while after hearing an interview about it on NPR’s ‘Fresh Air’ with Terry Gross.

Every time I turn around, a new charter school is opening, sending glossy brochures of students – stock photos, but nonetheless appealing, of kids in lab coats, or enjoying algebra. And that’s when a parent may find themselves at the open houses, registering for the new charter school’s lottery, and doing a lot of soul searching about whether or not to abandon their public school.
We all deserve a place to call home and to be treated with dignity and respect – including those experiencing homelessness. Being homeless is not a crime, and arresting those who are is not the solution. We know that countless people are just one paycheck away from being homeless.
By: Chris Brunner: Coral Springs Police have released the 911 call that went out less than four minutes after Brandon St Onge slipped out of the rear slider of this home and drowned in the family pool. On April 30, Jason St Onge was inside the home cooking dinner, while Viviane was watering plants in front of […]
Every year, thousands of animal cruelty cases are reported nationwide. These cases can result from either deliberate abuse or merely the failure to take proper care of an animal. As sheriff of Broward County, it is my duty to ensure that all animals in our community are protected. Whether you live in an urban or a rural community, animal abuse is a serious crime.
