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.

There's a new sheriff in town who goes by the name of
John W. Scott.
The eyes, ears, mouths and memories of Broward County activists and bloggers are about to be deputized.

Time to Cowboy up!

Question: Where were all the elected officials and activists in South Florida who knew from personal experience that Sylvia Poitier was an unethical crook, and yet did nothing and said nothing, when her reign of ruin could have been ended so very long ago?

And what about the South Florida reporters who consciously ignored this story, except when there was a new development, when they used Chaz's blog for crib notes because of their own inherent laziness?
Yes, we know exactly who you are -and we haven't forgotten!

tireless efforts have finally produced the exact results he predicted -and that his detractors said would never happen.
Game, set, match, Chaz Stevens

Chaz Stevens Q & A: Poitier, His Work And How He Got His Name

By Buddy Nevins

April 14, 2011
Blogger Timothy “Chaz” Stevens has been labeled profane. He’s been branded biased. He’s accused of being a shameless self-promoter.

Whatever you think of Stevens, he is unique. No one has shaken up a local City Hall in recent years like this phantom of the Internet.

Do you want to know what's especially delightful about the above Broward Beat post?

The insufferable sour grapes expressed by so many people in Broward County who've continually sat on their asses for years bitching about everything on other people's blogs -like Buddy's and Bob Norman's- but who have never done anything tangible themselves to improve the civic ethos in Broward County, yet who never fail to criticize Chaz whenever they had the opportunity, regardless of the circumstances.

Here's some Breaking News for you: Chaz has the last laugh!

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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