The City of Tamarac will be holding it’s first reading of a new “Nuisance Abatement Assessment Ordinance” this Wednesday morning. On the outside, it appears fairly innocuous, however it’s the unspoken, unwritten consequences of it that really needs to be scrutinized.
A Message from Sheriff Al Lamberti – Child Drownings: Prevalent and Preventable – Children are naturally attracted to water. If adults turn their heads for a moment, a toddler can silently slip underwater. If dad’s attention is diverted by a ringing phone, or grandma steps away to stir the soup cooking on the stove…..
Activists across Broward County met on the corner of University and Sunrise Boulevard for a “Three Stooges Tax Day Rally”.

Here’s a closer look at one of our more unusual residents; Sidney the Sphynx cat.
Sphynx cats are a rare breed of cat with extremely little fur, or at most short fuzz over its body, and no whiskers.
