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. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Excellent video from the Everglades Foundation re South Florida's fresh water supply -with a cameo by HB Comm. Keith London- that really puts things into perspective for South Florida residents, present and future


Everglades Foundation video: Everglades Summit: Water Supply in South Florida
February 1, 2012. February 12, 2012. http://youtu.be/UYP35yT8gFI


This film is one in a series created by the Everglades Foundation that is now at their YouTube Channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/EvergladesFndtn/ which I have since subscribed, has terrific production values and really puts things into perspective for South Florida residents, present and future.

One of the interview suspects, Michael Grunwald of TIME magazine, is based out of Miami and is the author of the critically-received book, The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida, and the Politics of Paradise (Simon & Schuster, 2006)
