Morning Juice: Ethics Reform on Track in Broward; Marlins Lose Heartbreaker

Let's see what's happening in South Florida:

  • Faced with two terrifying evils, members of the Broward County Commission appear ready to pass an ethics reform package they aren't sure they can work within, but it's still better than the other option of scrapping the reform package and facing the wrath of voters. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • State officials say that BP has made it difficult to prepare local measures to guard against the oil spill affecting the Florida coast, apparently because federal law requires the company responsible for the spill to sign off on related cleanup actions. [Palm Beach Post]
  • Broward teachers are furious that during a period of job cuts, the school district would rehire a retired principal, even at a salary $17,000 less than before. [Miami Herald]

  • A 9-year-old girl from Hollywood suffered life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car near Roosevelt Street and North 23rd Avenue. [CBS4]
  • Wild game last night in Sun Life Stadium, where the Marlins made a run at Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum, coming back twice to tie the game and send it into extra innings only to lose 12-9. It's the seventh time the Marlins have dropped the opening game of a series. [Miami Herald]
