We can’t decide if this is the funniest or the evilest thing we’ve heard today: people in Florida have hired a scary clown to scare their kids while they’re hunting for Pokemons.
According to the report about the incident the clown mentioned is Wrinkles, a 65 year old performer, who was seen before in Florida in the past few years, after being hired by parents to scare their kids as a punishment for misbehavior. Wrinkles is famous for lurking outside windows of naughty children and scaring the s**t out of them, as a reminder to behave well.
OMG!! according to the caption on this video in YouTube it’s unclear how the clown got in the house. Also unclear if this is the real Wrinkles. The good news are that the girl wasn’t harmed.
In the last few days Wrinkles has been spotted again, this time scaring off kids who were playing Pokemon Go in Southwest Florida. Luckily for us, not in Plantation, which is where we are, or we will be freaked out for good!
What can be better than combining our sports enthusiasm and Florida love? Nothing. So imagine the joy realizing that out of the 554 athletes representing the US in the Olympic games in Rio 2016, 40 are from Florida.
If you’ve been following the Olympics since it started a day and half ago, then you know the American team had already won five medals, of which one is gold. Among the hundreds of athletes there are internationally renowned names, such as tennis sisters Serena and Venus Williams (who are from Florida!) and Olympic champion Michael Phelps, but some are less famous internationally. However, they’re as important to us.
Among the 40 Floridians in the Olympic team we would most like to commemorate our local south Florida members – Danell Leyva of Homestead (Gymnastics), Nick Delpopolo of Davie (Judo), Sloane Stephens (tennis) and Foluke Akinradewo (volleyball) of Fort Lauderdale and of course six athletes from Miami – Sylvia Fowels (basketball), Angelica Delgado (judo), Robin Prendes (rowing), David Hughes (sailing), Brianna Rollins (track and field) and Ashleigh Johnson (water polo).

We’re wishing all our athletes GOOD LUCK! Bring those medals home!
The Zika virus is being transmitted by mosquitoes in the United States. This sad news are now made official by the Florida State health department, after four new cases of Zika, three men and a woman, have been discovered in the state. Health officials believe that transmission is confined to a small area north of downtown Miami — including the Wynwood neighborhood.
The Zika virus broke out more than a year ago in South America, including Brazil, which will host the Olympic games under the threat of the disease. The main fear about the Zika regards pregnant women – the virus can cause defects in fetuses, especially microcephaly – a small head and brain damage.
These are of course worrying news, but the health department has recommended to take safety measures, such as using mosquito repellents or window screen. All in all, there is still no reason to panic (why you shouldn’t panic – read here).
The Florida health department has been doing efforts in the past few weeks to find mosquito concentrations and check whether they were carrying Zika. The searches are focused right now on the area where the new four cases have been discovered. Earlier this year the health department searched a wider area, including Miami Gardens.
It was only a week ago when Genesis Davila was crowned as Miss Florida USA. But the beauty did not stay sitting at the throne for long – she’s been stripped off her title two days ago, following what is described as “breaking the pageant rules.
As it turns out, once the contestants have checked in to the final run, one is not allowed to have contact with people outside the competition, nor get professional help with make up and such. But Ms. Davila has posted photos of herself getting her face done up by a pro, and hence breaking regulations. The photo was posted two days after the competition, which immediately led to complaints – and that was it.
So who is the new Miss Florida USA? please welcome Linnete De Los Santos, who was the runner up and now the new queen. Ms. De Los Santos is a legal secretary who attended Shepard Broad college in Davie, FL. We’re wishing her good luck at the coming Miss USA pageant.
This post doesn’t reflect any of Davie locksmiths views, and is just for entertainment value.
It was at the Florida International University in Miami, close to Kendall, where Hillary Clinton chose to present her running mate, Virgina Sen. Tim Kaine. Sen. Kaine made his debut today, joining Ms. Clinton on stage in Miami.
Miami was chosen as the best place to present Ms. Clinton’s running mate for many good reasons, one of them being a good place for Sen. Kaine to show off his Spanish. Indeed, Sen. Kaine opened his speech in Spanish, saying among other things, “We’re going to be compañeros del alma.” Soul mates.

The Clinton-Kaine team will now focus on getting the democratic ticket to running for presidency.

Is this a new era for Miami Dolphins? Could very well be. After searching for a running back for a while, the Dolphins have just signed Arian Foster for a one year contract. The contract is said to be a $1.5 million worth, with incentives that can bring it up to 3 millions.
Foster, who will turn 30 on August, had been forced to take a long injury break, which he ironically sustained while playing against the Dolphins at their home stadium in Miami Gardens, October 2015. That circle will close now, when Foster will join the Dolphins, as it was announced yesterday. We’re hoping that the veteran running back might do the trick for The Fins, who haven’t been to the Super Bowl since the 70’s. We would love to see them at the top again!
How many hi tech moguls families can live in one small town in Florida? More than you think. Steve Jobs’ widow has just bought $15M ranch in Wellington, Palm Beach county, the same city where Bill Gates has recently purchased a whole street.
Wellington is famous among equestrian enthusiasts as an elite horseback riding competitions area. As it happens, Gates’ oldest daughter, Jennifer, and Jobs’ oldest daughter, Eve, are both skilled riders who have competed against each other in the past. The families used to rent houses in the area when competed in Florida, but now have obviously decided to make it more permanent.

The new Jobs estate is reportedly including a barn that can host up to 20 horses. The Gates ranch is also equipped with barns and training area. So hopefully, the next Equestrian Festival in Wellington would be filled with celebs coming over to watch the two famous riders compete.
Every now and then we like to plan the weekend coming. One of the advantages of living in Florida is the wide selection of nature activities and water activities we can choose from. Fishing, for example, is a favorite, as it includes being at the outdoors, enjoying the view and the weather, having relaxed time combined with excitements, and then coming back home with dinner. Or what will be dinner after a short grilling. Perfect.
What can go wrong? Well, imagine all the above, and then a shark shows up and try to take a bite off your loot. Or your leg. Whichever came first. This is what happened to a Florida fisherman, standing in the water while spearfishing. In this video uploaded to YouTube, you can hear his friend yelling ‘it’s coming’, and then starts the run, including a stressful few seconds when his foot gets caught in the strings while trying to get away. Crazy.
You know that dream when you plan your wedding and you wish you can have someone really cool singing in it? Well, that came true in an unnamed couple’s wedding in South Florida last weekend.
As it happens, one of the guests of the wedding was Jon Bon Jovi. BON JOVI. Now apparently, he said before the wedding he wouldn’t want to sing and he’s attending it as a regular guest. But wedding singer Lourdes Valentin didn’t let that discourage her – and started singing his 1986 mega hit Living On A Prayer. At the videos taken on the event (as you can guess, loads of guests drew their phones and started filming as soon as this remarkable moment happened), Bon Jovi looks reluctant in the beginning, to the verge of the moment being awkward, but then he shows what a real sport he is – and joins her in singing. Wow.
The couple whose wedding it was is still unknown, but you can catch a glimpse of them at the video. What can we say – we’re jealous.
Hello Everyone! We hope you had a fabulous 4th of July! Personally, we are still full from all that food and we still are excited about all those fireworks. Man, yesterday was a good day.
Anyways, it’s Tuesday and though a bit tired we are back at our offices in Miami, Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Plantation and many more at the region, and we finally have time to take a look at what other people have been doing on this 4th of July. Obviously, there’s been a lot of BBQ going on (we swear we can still smell it. Is it just us?), and a lot of parades, and as mentioned, the fireworks, and all those beloved 4th of July classics (we love this day!), and then there were the celebs.
Oh yes, this 4th of July our state has been visited by a member of the big K clan, and we’re not talking about the Kennedys. It’s been a day on the beach for Kourtney Kardashian, and that beach happened to be at our own Miami Beach… The mom to three was joined by other hot famous moms, just to make our beaches a bit more glamorous…

We guess even California celebs rather spend this special day in Florida. We totally understand that…
