I was cleaning all my junk mail off my cluttered desk tonight when I came across this interesting brochure that caught my eye. Usually, I would have chucked this one in the garbage, but there’s something intriguing about getting a special deal on a ship like the Costa Concordia that essentially became ship-wrecked and is now lying on it’s side off the coast of Giglio. The January 13th disaster happened when the captain deviated from his planned route creating a huge gash that capsized the ship.
n 2010, the Broward Sheriff’s Office joined efforts with the Southern Poverty Law Center to create the film Bullied: a Student, a School and a Case that Made History, which tells the story of the first gay student to sue a school district in federal court for failing to protect him from bullying.

Jeffery London, 48, was arrested Wednesday night at his home in Lauderdale Lakes after returning from conducting bible study at the Bible Church of God in Fort Lauderdale. Earlier this month, the victim, who is now 18 years old, confided in a friend from church that he was abused repeatedly over the decade he lived with London. The victim’s mother had left him in London’s care when he was 8 years old after facing hard financial times.
The Broward Coalition is on the forefront of fighting for the rights of condominium and Home owner associations to be protected from the abusive banks and lending institutions that are sitting back and purposely stalling foreclosures proceedings on properties they own. They are heartlessly forcing association members to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars to pick up the financial slack.
On Saturday, January 21, 2012, a Candlelight Memorial Vigil will be held for Bradford Fernandez in Tamarac Florida. Bradford was only 14 years old when he took his life on January 21, 2011. He was in 8th grade and attended Westpine Middle School in Sunrise.
The memorial is open to everyone and parents and teens are encouraged to attend as there will be an emotional presentation by Bradford’s mother Ana Fernandez. Fernandez, who has created the non-profit organization “The Bradford Organization,” will be discussing Bradford’s life in the hope that it may educate people about teen suicide and show how parents and teens can recognize the warning signs and get the help that they need before it’s too late.
Your family will love the Tamarac Farmers Market. You can’t miss it on the corner of University and Southgate Boulevard, next to the Gary B. Jones Dog Park. It’s now open every Sunday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. and you can even bring your friendly dog and shop after visiting the dog park next door. I found some delicious food last week when visiting. I bought some dog treats for my two dogs, delicious Bolognese sauce that we ate last night with linguine, lemon garlic hummus, chocolate chip blondies and biscuits, hot sauces as well as some other great items.
The challenge of discipline and the courage to begin change has led one Tamarac resident on a journey towards total body fitness. However, as rewarding as this lifestyle change has been for her, it did come with a set of challenges and sacrifices.
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.

WTF?! I Wanted An iPhone!!! Song written by http://jonathanmann.net/
Check out this song based on tweets (Twitter) from Jon Hendren, of comedy website Something Awful, who retweeted dozens of the best ungrateful tweets he saw on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Within 48 hours, online musician Jonathan Mann had turned a mixture of the tweets into a song, reported Tech Crunch.

Does anyone remember the days when South Florida had Zayre’s Department stores just about everywhere?
In Tamarac, Zayre’s was located at 7350 W. Commercial Blvd which is now where Staples is located. That corner doesn’t even belong to Tamarac anymore as it has been annexed by Lauderhill. 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.

Here both sides of the chilling 911 tape of the shooting of a father shot by his mother-in-law in Tamarac Florida
Last week while driving through the intersection of Commercial Boulevard and University Drive, I saw a group of teenage boys walking in and out of traffic holding football helmets while asking for money. Were they part of a school football team? There was nothing printed anywhere that had their team name.
