By Jane Smith

    

    With a 15-minute soliloquy, Delray Beach’s mayor cast the deciding vote to keep the Community Redevelopment Agency board independent from the City Commission.

Finding Faith: Pub Theology: Finding faith in fun places

By Janis Fontaine

    You can find religion in the strangest places.

    Like at lunch.

    You’re quietly chowing down on a burger and fries and the guys at the next table are talking about religion. You don’t really mean to, but soon you’re joining the conversation. And the guys are just fine with that.

    A couple of years ago, one of those  friendly guys was Boca Raton’s Thad Schoen. “It was $5 burger day at the Biergarten in Royal Palm Plaza.…

Delray Beach: Boaters get update on seawall and dock projects

By Jane Smith



    Boat-loving residents came to Delray Beach’s outreach meeting to hear when work would begin on raising the seawall in Veterans Park and on replacing two docks there for marine access to the Intracoastal Waterway.

    The docks will be exactly where they are right now, said Brian LaMotte, project engineer with Wantman Group Inc., of West Palm Beach. Moving them would require more permits, delaying the project’s start, he said in late…

Letter to the Editor: Delray donors’ wishes disregarded

    For many years, until approximately two years ago, the city had encouraged donations to establish benches with commemorative plaques that would help upgrade the appearance of the beach walk. Frankly, with more encouragement from the city, all of the remaining original ugly wooden style benches could have been replaced.

    Fast forward to the current implementation of the beach master plan and a current city directive to replace all of the existing benches but not to include the…

Delray Beach: CRA ignores its own policy, OKs subsidy for iPic

By Jane Smith

    

    A city agency ceded to the demands of the proposed iPic theater and agreed to reimburse its owner $400,000, contradicting its 15-month-old policy of not subsidizing downtown projects east of Swinton Avenue.

    The Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency members also agreed to provide at least $75,000 annually to cover the costs of maintaining 90 public parking spaces in the iPic garage. The early March vote was 6-1, with CRA member…
