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.

How come there's a teacher massacre in Broward schools, but not in Palm Beach County or Miami-Dade?

With 1,400 Broward teachers told this week that their jobs are going down the drain, there's been a circular swirl of blame. The teachers' union points the finger at superintendent Jim Notter. Notter says it's the Legislature's fault. The Legislature blames unions.

Ordinarily, I'd say take your pick since there's plenty of blame to go around. Except for one thing.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/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 2016
