More Tamarac Parks are going up in the west side of town, yet nothing is planned for the east side of Tamarac. Meanwhile, the city’s last piece of open space, Sabal Palms and Monterrey Golf Courses, still sit empty and neglected.
By: Sharon Aron Baron The joyous Christmas season can bring out the best in people, but this year a neighbor in Section 8 has decided to show how malicious one can be during what should be a time of celebration. This neighbor, who seems to be privy to Section 8 financial and personal information, has […]
After Jeff Smoley wrote a response to my wild bird video with his observations of the many wild animals around the Woodlands, I was inspired to write about my experience with these critters.

[nggallery id=6] This year many residents got into the Christmas and even Hanukkah spirit and decorated their homes with lights, statues, and some even had music. My apologies if your home is not featured. If you would like it included, please send me an email and I’ll take some more photos this week.
The Woodlands Homeowners Association voted unanimously to create pedestrian lanes on Woodlands Boulevard on Monday, December 13th at their monthly meeting.

It was placed on the December […]
Dogs riding in golf carts: What was once an unusual sight to me now brings a smile to my face. The prevalence of dogs riding with their owners in golf carts at the Woodlands Country Club is evident by all the owners who decide not to leave home without their four-legged golfing partner. I don’t know […]
I just received word from the editor of Atomic Ranch Magazine that the Woodlands will have a small feature in their Spring issue. In case you aren’t familiar with Atomic Ranch Magazine, they feature mid-century modern homes around the United States. Atomic Ranch celebrates mid-century houses—from 1940s ranch tracts to 1960s architect-designed modernist homes. With […]
Today while in my office I heard the crash of birds hitting my skylight windows. I went outside and luckily none were dead but the noise was deafening. Hundreds of black birds were flying around. They must have made their way down south just like our Canadian friends.
Have you seen the Woodlands roving patrol.….roving lately? Chances are you haven’t.

According to BSO, most of the crimes in the Woodlands have been to personal property including homes […]

The Cottonwood Model – Vista Villa circa 1969.
As I was driving down I-95 the other day, I noticed that quite a few license plates were from Quebec. I couldn’t believe it was already that time again when the French-Canadians make the annual pilgrimage to South Florida for their snowbird season. Mile after mile, there they were, cars and RVs packed with suitcases – even […]
Contemporary Design…..in a highly distinctive interpretation of the clean, graceful lines it accents. A classic “idea” home offering spacious, leisure living in a picture setting among rolling fairways and winding streams.
Many of the dog owners I’ve met on my weekly trips to the dog park are the friendliest people I’ve ever come across. The Gary B Jones Park for People and Pups, or the “Tamarac Dog Park” as I like to call it, is a clean; well-maintained Dog Park that has some great features: tall […]
It’s not too often that you see the car the size of a small boat come cruising down your street. My son and I had to do a double take as we saw this 1970 Bonneville, humming by, with its proud owner and Woodlands resident, Ed Brown, behind the wheel. Since I’m such a fan […]

Sweepstakes Scam Here is a scam that neighbor Carl F shared with me today: “I just wanted to bring something to the community’s attention. My wife got a letter in the mail with what looks like an official Wachovia check for $3,880.00. It said that we were a sweepstakes winner and that we needed to call the number provided […]
By: Sharon Aron Baron Why don’t more people use public transportation in Tamarac? Unlike other major cities, the public transportation system in Broward County is not the preferred method of getting around. We’d rather drive in our cars to get from place to place. But what about those residents who don’t own a car? According […]
By: Sharon Aron Baron Just spotted at Publix grocery store in Tamarac – a Sukkah Mobile! Why just set up a sukkah in the privacy of your home or synagogue? Just do what the members of the Chabad of Tamarac do and put it on wheels. Just some background about Sukkot: Sukkot is an eight-day […]
