To Answer the Questions of Deerfield Beach Residents...



Deerfield Beach is still reeling after last week's arrests of Mayor Al Capellini and Commissioner Steve Gonot. Residents keep calling the Juice newsroom with the same questions, and we'll answer them here.

1) No, tomorrow's meeting of the Deerfield Beach City Commission will not take place at Broward County Jail, even though it's nearly got a quorum. The meeting is at City Hall, as usual.

2) Tonight's meeting of Deerfield Beach female lifeguards will occur at its previously scheduled time in the mayor's bedroom, as usual.

3) No, campaign contributions in exchange for political favors are nonrefundable, even in the event the mayor is convicted of corruption charges and thus unable to deliver on said favor.
