Programming note: I'm breaking in a new computer this morning, so expect some technical difficulties. Here's a look at what made news this weekend:
- Archbishop John C. Favalora led his final mass at St. Mary's Cathedral Sunday. He's stepping down after 16 years, with much of the past decade mired in priest sex abuse scandals. [Miami Herald]
- For all his efforts to hide his face on the way out of jail, we're getting to know plenty about Guerdwich Montimere, the 22-year-old Haitian who went to Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale before launching a new life as teenaged basketball star in Permian, Texas. Among the new legal issues from his double life: a report that he had sex with a 15-year-old girl who thought Montimere was the same age. [Sun-Sentinel]
- In Riviera Beach, family, friends, and students of L.C. Swain Middle School teacher Calvin L. Williams are trying to cope with his death, which is being investigated as a homicide. [Palm Beach Post]
- Elderly residents in the West Palm neighborhood of Northwood are launching their own crime-fighting organization after developing concerns about whether the police had enough resources to do the job. [WPTV-5]
- Florida Atlantic will develop an independent medical education program that can create real doctors -- not the kind who run pill mills. [WPBF-25]
