From Earl Rynerson Candidate for Mayor of Fort Lauderdale Campaign
As you know, I am a candidate for Mayor of Fort Lauderdale. I am excited about the possibility of being able to "polish up" the image of our City. (For updated information about me, my campaign and my positions on various issues, please go to my website: On Friday January 2nd, the pace of the Campaign really starts to quicken! We already have a rofessional Campaign Manager, Campaign headquarters near City Hall, T-Shirts, yard signs, campaign mailers and cards, TV commercials and a professional phone bank of 12 people ready to start on Jan 2nd! Whew! Now we are building a group of volunteers who are willing to donate some of their time on a particular weekend in January to do "Neighborhood Canvassing". This means going to selected homes in selected neighborhoods to leave campaign literature. I am asking for four hours of your time, (11am to 3pm) on any of the following weekend days below (Sat or Sun): Jan 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25, 31, Feb 1, 7 & 8. Everyone who signs up and arrives at our Campaign Headquarters to receive their walking map on their scheduled day will receive a Campaign T-Shirt and as many yard signs as they can properly place (ask friends and neighbors!!) I am hoping that you will reply to this email, telling me when you can volunteer. I want this City to be a destination that residents and tourists alike will be proud of and I want your help to allow us to achieve that! Please let me know when you can assist. Thank you!
Earl Rynerson
Candidate for Mayor of Fort Lauderdale

-Recyclables could end up in landfill
Value of goods has dropped significantly
By Andrew Abramson
With the price of recyclable goods falling at record rates, the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority is bringing in less than half the profit it was earlier this year and might have to consider dumping in landfills if the situation becomes more dire. The Solid Waste Authority, which was bringing in more than $1 million a month, made $467,000 in November, and officials expect the profit margin to continue to drop. Meanwhile, if it can't sell its goods and it runs out of space, landfills might be a temporary solution for some of the commodities.,0,791402.story

-Fort Lauderdale to help at-risk students at Dillard High School
At-risk students will be paired with employees
Brittany Wallman
Ninth-graders at risk of quitting Dillard High School will be paired with city employees, in a partnership approved by city commissioners. Commissioners last week consented to the Christian faith-based Community Hope Center recruiting city employees as mentors and tutors to teenagers at Dillard High School. Former city Police Lt. Alfred Lewers Jr. is chairman of the non-profit, and former schools superintendent Frank Till is on the board.,0,3202272.story

-More trouble for Sansom
Public records show an airport building that Northwest Florida State College plans to construct with tax money secured by House Speaker Ray Sansom is nearly identical to one Jay Odom wanted for his jet business, a newspaper reported Sunday. College officials have said the facility is not the same, and Sansom, R-Destin, told the Northwest Florida Daily News that critics are unfairly linking the projects.
