Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Less than a year after breaking her leg while sliding into second base during a charity softball game, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was back on the diamond, trying to outslug a team of Capitol Hill reporters. The congressional team lost, but at least it stayed injury-free. Proceeds went to fighting breast cancer, which has been a major issue for the West Broward congresswoman after she beat the disease last year.

Next year, let's raise the stakes. Assemble a congressional all-star team to knock the snot out of some oil executives. Heyward can pitch.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
