Tomorrow, I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’m a poll watcher for the GOP here in Palm Beach County. I went to ‘watcher school’ two Saturdays ago, got my credentials and learned what to look for and what I can and cannot do as a poll watcher. The upside is experiencing a new adventure and contributing to the process. The down side is getting my butt up at 5am to be present at the polling site I’ve been assigned to when they unload the counting machines and set up the whole sha-bang. Florida polls open at 7am and close at 7pm. They want us to stay until the last vote is cast. I’ll post about the experience Wednesday. I plan on celebrating at the Allen West victory party tomorrow night at the Boca Marriott. VOTE!

Football Fever December 5, 2008

It’s Friday in South Florida and that can only mean High School football playoffs!  My area has been blessed with a tremendous amount of talent this year witnessed by the fact that six area teams are competing to head for the state finals in their respective divisions. Florida has eight divisions based on high school enrollment.  The largest being 6A.  The two smallest divisions, 1 & 2 are further seperated into A & B.

Palm Beach County has five teams playing tonight in 6A, 4A, 2B, 1A and 1B for the right to go to the finals. Martin County to the north has a  team playing in the 5A division.

I’ll be going to the 1A semifinal game tonight. The Fort Meade Miners take on our American Hertitage Stallions.  The game is just 15 minutes from home so I can’t resist.

I’ll post the results tomorrow morning.
