A few dozen people showed up in the rain for the peaceful protest, including Patty Quinn, whos worked at a Westside arcade for the past six years.I am there to entertain, Quinn said. My duties include talking with people, giving them drinks, food, chips, making sure they are comfortable. But she said shes about to become the one uncomfortable when she loses her job at the arcade.I have a son in college, bills to pay, and all of a sudden, now, no money, Quinn said. They said we have until February. I could have prepared myself, ya know Its sad.She describes adult arcades as, a place to come hang out, have fun, everyone is a big family. I am going to miss my customers.One woman, who didnt want to give us her name, has managed four adult arcades over the last 10 years.I want the mayor and City Council to reverse the decision and let these people work through February 1, were only 67 days away from Christmas and these people live paycheck to paycheck. She and other arcade owners said theyre willing to award merchandise prizes instead of cash prizes if the city would agree to allow the arcades to remain open.

Special session begins Monday to decide fate of sheriff
10/19/2019 9:50am

Florida senators will start a special session Monday to decide the fate of suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.Gov. Ron DeSantis made Israels ouster one of his first priorities after taking office in January, accusing the embattled law- enforcement veteran of incompetence and neglect of duty for deaths resulting from mass shootings at Parklands Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport the previous year.The Senate, which has the authority to reinstate or remove elected officials, will convene the special session Monday morning. The Senate Rules Committee then will meet at 10:30 a.m., to consider the recommendations of Special Master Dudley Goodlette, a former Republican legislator appointed by Senate President Bill Galvano to preside over Israels appeal of the suspension.In a stunning blow to DeSantis last month, Goodlette found the Republican governor failed to make the case for Israels suspension and recommended the Senate reinstate the Broward County Democrat.The Rules Committee will hear from lawyers representing Israel and DeSantis, as well as from members of the public, on Monday.Parkland victims families fiercely oppose giving Israel his old job back, a message the still-grieving parents are certain to deliver in stark terms to the bipartisan committee and to the full Senate, which will meet later in the week to cast the decisive votes on Israels fate.Without question, the Senate committee meeting and floor sessions will be emotionally charged.Goodlette received a death threat after his report was released in late September, Galvano spokeswoman Katie Betta confirmed. Galvano directed the Senate sergeant to alert the Florida Department of Law Enforcement about the threat, which the Senate president considered very serious, Betta said.The Senate is coordinating with Capitol Police to ensure the safety of all visitors, staff and senators attending meetings related to the special session. President Galvano has requested that enhanced security precautions and protocols, which are confidential, be in place for the proceedings, she said in an email.
