Categories: Bidnizz, News

The news started filtering out to media outlets yesterday afternoon: Dan Borislow, the West Palm Beach tech entrepreneur who radically changed the telecom industry with an internet-based phone service, passed away on Monday evening. The former executive's company confirmed the death, and already tributes are starting to flow in regarding Borislow's impact.

But most of the memorials are paying little attention to an episode from his life that has arguably left a bigger impact than his invention: Borislow's brief but rocky tenure as owner of a Boca Raton professional women's soccer team that was stacked with international talent but combusted after only a single season, taking the league with it.

John Paul Alvarez Wants to Be Broward's First Gay State Rep

Via Facebook
John Paul Alvarez lives for the look in a student's eye that shows he or she gets it. At Stirling Elementary School in Hollywood, the baby-faced teacher is known for working well with troubled third-graders.

Perhaps it's because he recognizes himself in them. Alvarez grew up in Miami, just south of the airport, as the son of two Cuban immigrants who made their way over to Florida in the '60s. Although his parents opened a sandwich shop downtown, it floundered after a few years, leaving them to work a series of what Alvarez remembers as "the bad jobs, the hard jobs."

But now Alvarez, a Democrat, is asking for South Floridians' permission to take on a hard job his parents could have never dreamed of. He wants to serve as District 100's state rep and prioritize women's rights, LGBT rights, and education. If granted his wish, he'll also be making history as Broward County's first openly gay state rep. The district stretches south to Hollywood, Hallandale, Sunny Isles, Aventura and North Miami Beach.

Financial sites, real estate blogs, and other websites that delve into figuring out the best places in the U.S. have been coming out and naming Fort Lauderdale to the top of their many best-of lists lately.

But one site has come out and bucked the trend, naming Boca Raton the best Florida city to live in.

That's right, Fort Lauderdale. You can keep your best downtown, most exciting city, and sexiest city. Those are all fine and good. But when it comes to actually living somewhere -- especially somewhere where you probably won't be murdered -- Boca takes you to the hole!

Ann Murray, Former School Board Member Busted for Using N-Word, Running for Reelection


Former Broward School Board transportation department supervisor Ann Murray is running for reelection for the Broward School Board in August. But before voters decide between her and or her opponent -- West Park City Commissioner Felicia Brunson -- there's the little matter of Murray's past use of the "N word."

Back in 2007, a year before her election to the School Board, Murray's allegedly used the racial epithet while describing the cheap seats at Sun Life Stadium.

Her use of the word became public in 2011, and Murray was called to resign by the vice president of the Democratic Black Caucus of Broward County.
