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.

Ann Murray being Ann Murray? That's NEVER a good thing! Bob Norman asks if Ann Murray is "Targeting Whistleblower for Firing?"; Iceland inspires

Visit Iceland 2011


On a very warm and miserable day in South Florida with no breeze to speak of, there's nothing like a story from ace sleuth Bob Norman detailing even more of the sordid and slimey behavior that I (we've) come to expect from Ann Murray of the Broward School Board -who represents my corner of S.E. Broward- to make me feel like it's already the first week of August. Miserable, miserable August.

That time of the year where I have to go somewhere far cooler (in more ways than one) to chill out and recharge my batteries.
To get away from both dysfunctional South Florida and Dolphin head coach
Tony Sparano's nonsensical annual training camp prattle about Chad Henne's great potential.

Someplace like Iceland?

Could be!

Is School Board Member Ann Murray Targeting Whistleblower for Firing?

By Bob Norman, Wed., Apr. 20 2011 @ 9:03AM
Broward School Board member Ann Murray claims she is trying to tighten the district's purse strings by laying off building inspectors.

Building inspector Michael Marchetti -- a whistleblower who exposed massive corruption by Murray's board -- told Murray during a meeting last week that she's on a "personal vendetta" to fire him.

Murray didn't answer Marchetti's charge, but I'm sure he's right.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
