Tamarac Developer Kenneth Behring’s Home for Sale – Buy a House and Some History

This article was purchased from the Sun-Sentinel Archives. It was printed in 1986 when the former home of Kenneth Behring went on the market. Behring was one of the developers of Tamarac as well as one of Broward county’s largest developers.
Coincidentally, Behring’s home is now back on the market 26 years later for the same price as it was in this article. Originally offered at almost $2 million in 2009, the current owners have lowered the price significantly.

UPDATE: Proposed Tamarac Charter School K-8 Hearing on January 11

Remember When Tamarac had Zayre’s?

Remember When Tamarac had Zayre’s?

Does anyone remember the days when South Florida had Zayre’s Department stores just about everywhere?

Back in 1989, Ames Department Stores bought out Zayre’s stores but after several years they proved unprofitable and eventually closed them up in 2002 ceasing operations.
