Morning Juice: Heeeeere's Bonnie!

A glance at the local headlines for this Friday morning:

  • Tropical Storm Bonnie is going to scratch away at the Broward - Miami-Dade area all day, with winds at 40 mph. For Palm Beach County, a tropical storm watch is in effect. [WSVN-7]
  • The criminal gang Top 6 has become a top priority for Palm Beach Sheriff's Office, which on Thursday arrested a 20-year-old member of that gang, Jimmy Gilles, and charged him with two counts of attempted murder, among other felonies. [Palm Beach Post]

  • Coyotes are on a rampage in Parkland, where residents are arming themselves with guns, traps and guard dogs. The city has sent an email warning to not leave children alone in areas where coyotes roam, in case that wasn't already obvious. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • The Hollywood Commission is trying to spread the pain around in hopes that it can close a budget gap. So residents see a slight bump up in property tax, which means slightly fewer city workers get laid off and slightly fewer services are cut. That's life when property values drop by 12 percent in one year. [Miami Herald]
