Morning Juice: Broward School Board Considers Nuclear Fallout; "Smell-a-Vision" Maybe Bad Idea

The news this morning in South Florida:

  • At last night's Broward County School Board meeting, members discussed a refresher course on ethics. So... like that safety meeting the Soviets had after the meltdown at Chernobyl? [Miami Herald]
  • Crist is going to demand the state review loopholes that allow felons to land jobs at nursing homes and day care centers. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Having taken flak from parents about the curriculum for their gifted students, the Palm Beach County School District made what figures to be a popular change in advance of today's board meeting. [Palm Beach Post]
  • Rather than summarize can I just quote Fox 7 correspondent Derek Hayward from his trip to a Sunrise home that's attracted complaints from neighbors? "Oh my God. Right here. We don't have Smell-a-vision, but right here, the smell of urine -- and something else -- is really just overpowering." Thanks, Derek. Maybe it's time to sell my stock in Smell-a-Vision. [WSVN]
  • The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office is turning up the heat on the "Withdrawal Bandit." [WPTV]
  • Jay Levin, the West Boca man who in 2004 shot and killed a 16-year-old who was playing a prank on him is sick of that 10-year probation and asked a judge for it to end early. Parents of the dead teenager aren't too supportive of that plan. [Sun-Sentinel]
