Along the Coast: Mayors find consolidation consultant’s price steep

By Steve Plunkett



    When coastal mayors next meet to discuss ways to consolidate services and reduce costs, they’ll have a big price tag to digest: $71,500.

    That’s how much consultant Willdan Homeland Solutions wants to study the possibility of making one fire-rescue department to serve Gulf Stream, Ocean Ridge, Briny Breezes, Manalapan and Lantana.

    The cost estimate surprised at least one mayor.

    “I don’t think that’s too accurate,” said Ken Kaleel of Ocean… Continue

Tom Collins’ Eulogy for his mom, Susan Clara Nivens

 

First, on behalf of my mom, thank you all so much for coming. You all meant a lot to her.

 

We’re all here to remember and celebrate the life of a great woman. A woman who had a passion for duckpin bowling. A woman who enjoyed pina coladas. A woman who really dug Elvis Presley. And a woman who made a mean meatloaf.

 

But what we all think of first when we think of my mom is her kind spirit, which I think is best reflected in a few…

COMMUNITY CARING CENTER OF BOYNTON BEACH

By Mary Jane Fine

Fourteen years ago, when Sherry Johnson joined the CCC of Boynton Beach, part-time, she began questioning the way tummies were being filled. “When you’re serving a community where people have a lot of high blood pressure, and you’re handing out cans [of food] filled with nothing but sodium,” thought Johnson, now the center’s…
