Coral Springs


People are walking around the track at Coral Springs High School to raise money for the fight against cancer. There are school groups and corporations present. And there are people who are walking in honor of loved ones who have died from cancer. Survivors and those who have died from cancer will be honored during the Relay for Life.  Pictured above are members of the Coral Glades High School Key Club and the National History Honor Society.

Coral Springs Fire Chief Frank Babinec said, “We have had three firefighters with cancer over the past year and we are doing everything we can to support them,” he said.

Cathy Puleo was among a group of teachers and students from Coral Springs Middle School who were walking to honor Nancy Powers, a former teacher at the school who died from cancer.

Tracy Hartung lost her husband to brain cancer. She and family and friends participated in the walk.




The Coral Springs Charter Softball Team defeated King’s Academy 8-0 to win a regional quarter final game. Kayla Scaperrotta was the top player for the Panthers with two hits, an RBI and a run scored. Coral Springs Charter plays Calvary Christian on Tuesday.

The Florida Senate agreed to a restriction that would require women to wait 24 hours to get an abortion. The Florida House has already passed this legislation and Gov. Rick Scott is expected to sign it into law. Women will have to have an ultrasound and receive information about an abortion and then wait 24 hours before having the procedure done.

Coral Springs Relay for Life will take place on Saturday from noon to midnight at Coral Springs High School. Cancer survivors will be honored and people will raise money for the fight against cancer by walking around the school’s running track.

The City of Coral Springs is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of the “Top Workplaces 2015”.

Any business, government agency or nonprofit with at least 35 employees in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade was eligible.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback, not size, revenue or growth. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States.

“I am delighted that the Sun-Sentinel has named our organization as one of the Top Workplaces. We had over 500 employees participate in the survey, which is outstanding,” City Manager Erdal Donmez said. “We are proud to have received such positive feedback from our own employees and are honored to be recognized as a great place to work.”
