I think everyone needs to lighten up a little. No for realz.
I find this to be concerning. There are hardly any feel good news stories published in the Boca area. Why do we love reading about tragedy so much? I’m finding stories about teachers kissing students on the lips, about “mind blowing” hit and run accidents caught on tape and last but not least, a cop was badly injured and found it a pool of his own blood.
Damn… wtf is this?
Look, I’m all about reporting important stories but I’m doing my best to really provide value. If you want to read about blood and guts you can find it somewhere else.
So… if you have any positive stories, any spotlight stories, or know anyone doing something cool in the area, be sure to let me know. Reply to this email or shoot me a line at email@example.com.

Banyan Restaurant Review in Pineapple Grove
Pineapple Grove used to be a quaint off-the-beaten-path little sister to Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, but it has emerged as a serious dining destination and a respite of sorts from The Madness due south.
Its latest addition is The Banyan, which practically snuggles up to a handsome old banyan tree someone had the foresight to save in the push for downtown sprawl.
Downtown Boca’s Building Boom is Nearing an End
The building boom in downtown Boca may seem never-ending: Seven new high-rises have soared between seven and 12 stories to redefine the city’s skyline.
And several more buildings are under construction. But the finish line to this extreme makeover is now in sight, the city says.
Get Involved with Boca News
One last thing, we would love to get more of your input in our newsletter. Over the next month, I will be transforming the website and expanding much more then just a weekly newsletter.
I want to be able to publish real stories about real people. I want to write about exciting events, about new businesses, about art and great food. Something more than the sensationalized content that is flooding the Boca news outlets.
