Just a few things for you this morning drawn from South Florida's mainstream media sources.
A- Herald: Doh!
Late Sunday night or early Monday morning, crooks broke into the Caribe Café in the 7100 block of West Flagler Street. Miami police said they gained access to the restaurant by breaking into a business next door and then cutting a hole in the wall.B- Herald: Marc Caputo on Florida's voter suppression.
Once inside, they stole a safe which had about $35,000 inside. They also took the DVR system that records the restaurant’s surveillance cameras.
Not only was Election Day in Florida bad for Oliva, it looked bad for democracy. It was bad for Florida’s deserved reputation of Flori-duh when it comes to elections. It was bad for Scott’s image. And it was bad for Scott’s own party.C- Herald: Editorial, Republicans need to change.
For Republicans, this election should serve as a rude awakening. The party needs to reach out to Hispanics now, before their affiliation with the Democratic Party becomes part of their political DNA. A failure to act would turn Latino voters from now on into a sure thing for Democrats, just as certainly as the GOP’s Southern Strategy in the 1970s permanently alienated black voters.D- Palm Beach Post: Life in South Florida.
The face of America is changing in the same way and at the same pace that the microcosm of South Florida changed over the past few decades. This change toward greater diversity and social openness, less inclined to heed nostalgic appeals and eager to make a difference and climb the ladder of success, has been good for Miami and our region, and it will be good for the country.
Boynton Beach Police this morning continue to investigate an armed robbery last night outside of a local Office Depot.E- TC Palm: Slideshow, Stuart Air Show photos.
An overnight stock employee exited the store located at 260 N. Congress Ave. around 11:30 p.m. yesterday and was escorting two other employees out of the building. All three were approached by two men. One of the men wore a white shirt and the other wore a yellow shirt, according to police.
The man with the yellow shirt pointed a revolver at the three employees.
Out of fear, the employees handed the men their wallets as well as cell phones and a watch, police said.
