Morning Juice: Deerfield Beach Burn Victim Talks; Governor Does Not

Here's the view of the front page this Tuesday in Broward and Palm Beach:

  • Charlie Crist came to Fort Lauderdale to drum up support from local Republicans and to duck questions about Marco Rubio. Check out the video -- Crist reacts to the Rubio name the way Captain Hook reacts to the ticking clock of the crocodile that ate his hand. [WPLG
  • The Sun-Sentinel's Brittany Wallman got treated to a parade of profanity from Scott Rothstein, who made it clear he's the only one allowed to hurt his family. "You're in a town full of thieves," Rothstein told her. Then he should run for mayor. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Michael Brewer, the 15-year-old from Deerfield Beach set on fire by a group of hostile teens, gave a statement to investigators with the Broward Sheriff's Office, more than a month after the attack. [Miami Herald]
  • William Jacobson, the Palm Beach County judge-elect who lost his law license based on an outburst in the courtroom of his opponent in the 2008 race, is on track to get that license back. [Palm Beach Post]
  • William Deese, a Palm Beach County cabinet and countertop contractor busted for fraud, was sentenced to 80 months in prison after screwing over some 60 families. [WPTV]
  • Dania Beach Commissioner Al Jones was appointed by Charlie Crist to the Broward County Commission, replacing disgraced Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion. [Sun-Sentinel]
