June 2nd 2017
I spent a loooott of time this week rebuilding the website and taking Boca News to the next level.
If you notice, I redesigned the website and I built out better categories for a better user experience. I also created the advertising template after so many people were inquiring about rates. They are dirt cheap because I am still more concerned with building an audience than creating revenue.
And finally, I built an actual content scheme so that Boca News can start creating our own content. Eventually I plan to be fully autonomous but you can still expect to see important stories from other websites on the weekly newsletter. The goal is always to provide the most value as possible.
So, I hope you like it and I welcome you to join me in building the best website in Boca.
Together we can create something great.
Enjoy this week’s newsletter. As always, feel free to reply to this email with a story or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Someone is in biiiigg trouble
The United States Coast Guard reports that six people were taken into custody Saturday after a boat with 750 pound of marijuana was intercepted by the Coast Guard off the coast of Boca Raton.
Officials said a Coast Guard cutter conducted a safety boarding of a 35-foot sport fisher about 11 miles east of Boca Raton.
About Trump and Paris
Without getting political, it seems to be a pretty universal understanding that leaving the Paris accord is a stupid idea.
Luckily, the Boca Raton city counsel has made a pledge in our own climate action pledge.
Shoot or don’t shoot?
Officials on Wednesday unveiled a firearms training simulator. It displays video of a scenario onto a big screen as a computer controls what happens next. The trainee is armed with a Smith and Wesson M&P handgun loaded with a CO2 cartridge, and the program tracks on screen where the officer fires.

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.
