Morning Juice: Crist Taps a School Board Member; Heart Attack Killed Picower
For fresh material on the breaking news item of the moment, the stabbings in Manalapan, scroll down. Here's what else is happening in Broward and Palm Beach:
- That's not the day's only stabbing story. A 15-year-old in Coral Springs stabbed his 14-year-old brother to death during a fight over the volume of a computer. [Sun-Sentinel]
- Former Broward GOP chair Kevin Tynan has been appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist to replace Beverly Gallagher on the Broward County School Board. Tynan's got zero background in education, zero familiarity with the district, and has never been elected to a public office, but he's still a bit more qualified than the guy whom Crist appointed to the U.S. Senate.

- Crist's primary opponent, Marco Rubio, gave a rousing speech to Broward's Republican Executive Committee last night, but he didn't mention the governor. [Miami Herald]
