The Town of Davie is accepting pre-registration applications for a Temporary Release Program for large animals beginning June 1, 2011. The Town will open a neighborhood center to serve as holding area before and during a hurricane or natural disaster. In order to qualify for the temporary release program, you must be a Davie resident or your horse(s) must live in Davie.
Once a hurricane warning has been issued, a site located, will open for pre-registered horses only. This site will reopen to retrieve your horses when the winds have subsided to a minimum of 40 mph. You are encouraged to visit the site for yourself before completing your pre-registration form to determine whether you feel it is safer than your current situation. Remember, this turn-out site is for Davie residents or your horse(s) must live in Davie.
The cost for the program is $20.00 per horse. This fee must be included with your pre-registration. Pre-registration forms are available by contacting Bonnie Stafiej, Director of Special Projects at (954) 797-1163, firstname.lastname@example.org or you may obtain this information on-line. Download your application and other important information by visiting the Town of Davie’s web page at www.davie-fl.gov. Click on Hurricane Info and locate Temporary Large Animal Release Program.
On Saturday, May 8, from 2pm to 7 pm, The National Association of Letter Carriers, in conjunction with the United States Postal Service®, will be collecting non-perishable food items like canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice to help families in need in our community, in its annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive (www.usps.com/stampouthunger).

After receiving the latest issue of DRW Magazine (May, 2010) I noticed that you have some wrong information in it. On the Fun Family Festivals page it lists Moonfaire as occurring on May 13th. It looked interesting and I have never been to Coral Castle before so I looked it up to see what time it occurred and how to get there. However I found out that it doesn’t happen on May 13th, it happens on March 13th, June 12th, September 11th, and December 11th. I just wanted to let you know.
Jennifer, thank you for the correction! Thankfully such errors are rare in DRW – and Coral Castle is fascinating no matter when you go.
This Sun-Sentinel article tells the tale of a few Davie robbery victims who tried to pursue the criminals who attacked them. The chase ended when the victims crashed their car near T.Y. Park in Hollywood. The robbers got away. 5 mile, likely alcohol-fueled vigilante chases at 1 am in the morning? It’s never a good idea to play cop…
