Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Mea culpa on Marko meeting -it's Wednesday; Hollywood's Beachside Montessori Village won't open on time in August

July 13, 2010 photo by South Beach Hoosier of S.E. 3rd Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, looking north at downtown FTL, taken from an 11th floor window of the Broward County Schools HQ, 600 S.E. Third Avenue, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. You can see the two River House condo towers and the Sun-Sentinel Building among others.

By the way, per my email and longer blog post of yesterday,
the Ed Marko replacement/General Counsel screening meeting at the Broward Schools HQ is Wednesday at 1 p.m., not today.

I found out the hard way when I showed-up, eager to hear who some of the candidates were.
And the 11th Floor Large Conference Room was empty.

Don't think of it as me being wrong so much as me being early!

Additionally, while I was downtown, I heard some news of interest regarding my part of the universe in SE Broward County and then saw that confirmed when I got home and checked the dashboard of my blog account.

The very controversial Beachside Montessori Village K-8
at 2230 Lincoln Street in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Hollywood, WON'T be open when the school bell rings for the first time in August.

Not good news for Broward School Board incumbents running for re-election like Ann Murray or Jennifer Gottlieb, who are already batting widespread perceptions that they are clearly part of the dysfunction junction problem and NOT part of any sensible solution that benefits students or taxpayers.
And it's not just me who thinks that, either.

Jennifer Gottlieb
and her myriad problems are, outside of strictly Hallandale Beach issues, by far the most popular topic in emails to your faithful blogger.

But it's definitely not the kind of popularity contest she wants to win!

New school won't open on time Posted by Akilah Johnson on July 13, 2010 03:44 PM

There’s an “urgent parent meeting” this week for anyone whose kids are enrolled at Beachside Montessori Village, the new K-8 school scheduled to open in Hollywood.

Apparently, the school won’t be finished before school starts on Aug. 23.

Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
