Broward Legal Aid recognized The Legal Aid Society of Broward County was recently profiled in Dialogue, a national magazine published by the American Bar Association.In the article, the typical workday of five of the legal aid organization’s attorneys is described. LAS has been serving Broward County’s poorest residents for more than 30 years, and the attorneys focus on children’s advocacy, consumer law, housing and special projects including immigration advocacy, the Ryan White project, and the Environmental Law initiative.Each story told by the attorneys in the article is similarly heartbreaking. Attorney Mindy Jones tells of the abused woman who came to LAS for help escaping from her police officer husband. Debra Koprowski defends elderly clients who have had their property illegally taken from them by predatory lending con artists. Janet Riley keeps poor people from losing the only home they’ve ever known. Ann Siegel helps children get the legal educational testing they need — a task made personal to the attorney by her own child’s struggles with the system.LAS of Broward County received more than $650,000 in funding from The Florida Bar Foundation last year.

Captain Barrington Irving landed in Lauderdale Lakes on Friday for the unveiling of a plaque in his honor at Barrington Irving’s Bridge of Educational Excellence which connects the Vincent Torres Park with Park Lakes Elementary School.Captain Irving is renowned for becoming the youngest pilot to fly alone around the world in a single-engine airplane at the age of twenty-seven in 2007. He flew 30,000 miles in the plane named “Inspiration.” Captain Irving was inspired by a Jamaican airline pilot (who became his mentor) and decided to pursue a career in Aviation. He has since become a motivation for young students who aspire to be in the aviation field and those who have dreams that may seem impossible to obtain.Marching band and water saluteStudents from Boyd Anderson High School Marching Band played for the Captain during his arrival with Mayor Hazelle Rogers while Lauderdale Lakes Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Department provided a water salute. After the unveiling, Mayor Rogers accompanied Captain Irving to Park Lakes Elementary School, Lauderdale Lakes Middle School and Central Charter School within the city. “Need role models like Captain Irving,” Mayor Rogers“The children were so excited to be visited by the Captain,” said Mayor Rogers. They were fully engaged and excited and also full of questions. These are the strong young professional that we need to become mentors to our youth and I’m so proud to have Captain Irving in our city.” “Awesome visit,” IrvingIrving interacted with kids in their science classes and engaged them just like “The Flying Classroom” where instructional activities make learning content easier. “Today was an awesome visit for me!” said Captain Irving. “With today’s technology moving so fast, we are certainly in need of more professionals in so many different fields like aviation, marine biology and agriculture. These children represent our future.”

Brandon Ingram and former Laker D’Angelo Russell played in summer league following their rookie seasons, although neither played all of the Lakers’ games.Instead, the offseason directive from Johnson and General Manager Rob Pelinka, who spoke to the media Friday after concluding exit interviews with players a day earlier, was more about Ball’s mentality than anything else.“If you want to be an All-Star and you want to lead this team to the playoffs,” Pelinka said he told Ball, “that can’t be something we tell you how to work in the offseason. That’s got to be something that you choose to do. You should be hunting down the weight coaches, you should be hunting down the basketball development coaches. You should be begging to get in the gym and developing that drive for greatness.”Top Lakers officials were united in the belief that, despite Ball shooting just 30.5 percent from 3-point range in his rookie season, they do not want him making dramatic changes to his jump shot. EL SEGUNDO — Lonzo Ball’s offseason will not include an appearance at the NBA’s summer league in Las Vegas.Lakers president Magic Johnson said Ball and Kyle Kuzma will skip the July event to focus on their individual progress following strong rookie seasons.“We want those guys in the gym, working with weights, working on their game, so they won’t be playing in summer league,” Johnson said.Rookies Josh Hart and Thomas Bryant will be on the summer team, Johnson said. “There’s always little things you can change,” Coach Luke Walton said. “The balance of your shot, things like that. You always work on those as a shooter. But changing the form? I wouldn’t recommend doing that.”Ball said Thursday the Lakers bosses told him this would be “the biggest summer of my life.”That extends beyond the court. He and his girlfriend, Denise Garcia, are expecting a daughter in July, and Ball has various obligations with his father’s Big Baller Brand.The weight room was a theme of Friday’s interviews. Ball was limited to just 52 games as a rookie, and Johnson said he wanted his point guard and second-year forward Brandon Ingram to get stronger to aid in their durability.“It’s going to be about being disciplined,” Walton said, “and making the decisions that no matter what’s going on in your life, these are things that I’m doing every single day. Not because I have to, but because I want to. And I think Zo understands that. He’ll be committed to that.”Ball finished the season averaging 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 reboundsRelated Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Johnson praised Ball, the player he called the “face” of the franchise after selecting him second overall in June.“He handled himself well,” Johnson said. “One thing about Lonzo, you don’t have to worry about him. He’s his own man. He has great passion and love for basketball and for the Lakers. He came in, I mean, man, with this big bang and high expectations from everybody. I think he was able to live up to a lot of the expectations.”Johnson said at the start of training camp he did not need to “monitor” Ball’s father, LaVar. Despite a meeting he and Pelinka had with the elder Ball in November to ask him to tone down his criticisms of Walton, Johnson said the two “have a good relationship with LaVar” and did not anticipate any problems moving forward.“We only had two conversations with LaVar,” Johnson said. “And they were both good, and we moved on. I don’t have to monitor LaVar. He loves his son and cares about his son and wants his son to be better and that is what we want. We want him to be better, and so I am not going to monitor him.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs
Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, has called for stronger collective efforts to enforce the law underpinning the Agricultural Produce Receipt Book System, which was established to combat praedial larceny.His urging comes against the background of complaints from several victims that enforcement of the law by the police force has, to some extent, been inadequate, resulting in thieves frequently raiding farms and escaping with produce.“We have to get serious about our laws. This is a time that is going to require of us courage, collective action, and working in unity. When the criminals find out that we are serious because we’re working together, this problem is going to become a diminishing [one]. So the police must demand receipts,” he underscored.The Minister was speaking at the Coconut Industry Board’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 4, at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon.

Story Highlights “We have to get serious about our laws. This is a time that is going to require of us courage, collective action, and working in unity. When the criminals find out that we are serious because we’re working together, this problem is going to become a diminishing [one]. So the police must demand receipts,” he underscored. His urging comes against the background of complaints from several victims that enforcement of the law by the police force has, to some extent, been inadequate, resulting in thieves frequently raiding farms and escaping with produce. National Security Minister, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, who also spoke at the AGM, said his Ministry is aware of the farmers’ challenges, and is willing to continue working with them to eliminate the problem.“The challenge has become much more critical. Security is one of the foundations on which we build our economy and, certainly, praedial larceny is an area [of the Ministry’s focus],” he stated.Dr. Chang, who also noted that there have been increased attacks on farmers, assured that efforts are being made by the security forces to combat this.Delegates attending the meeting were updated on wide-ranging developments.These include impending plans for the industry’s expansion and farmers’ roles in this undertaking.The Coconut Industry Board was established in 1945 under the Coconut Industry Control Act.
