Tomorrow Myrna Bramson, our answer to Celebrity Pastry Chef, is going  for some heart work. Everyone who knows Myrna, knows what a big heart she has so tomorrow morning she will have Mitro Valve Repair or Replacement and a Heart Sling. The good news is that she will be able to get this procedure done without going through complete open heart surgery.

Best of luck Myrna, we are all looking forward to a speedy recovery,

Wasserman Schultz's Floor Statement, Re: Boehner Lawsuit Against President Obama.

"It is unconscionable that when this do-nothing Republican Congress finally decided to
do something, its suing the President for doing his job when they refuse to do theirs."

This past Wednesday, June 11th , the Miami Beach City Commission, by Resolution and unanimous vote, named Miami Beach native and lifetime area resident, Professor Seth Bramson as Miami Beach’s official City Historian and contracted with him to write the City’s Centennial history. He has been reluctant to send this wonderful news out but I felt that an honor as wonderful as this should not be kept “a secret” since it will be going out to the public and the media very shortly. Seth will not only write the Centennial history but will write a monthly history monograph for the city beginning in July, focusing on the people, places, and events that, through the last century, have made Miami Beach the amazing and incredible place that it is.

  This is sort of an unusual request.  Maris King Gherman's daughter Darah was in a terrible biking accident recently.  She's going to hopefully be alright, but is in need of extensive reconstructive dental surgery plus, plus, plus.  Unfortunately, she is without dental insurance and the cost is astronomical.  Darah and her family (husband Joaquin and five precious children) are here under difficult circumstances to begin with.  Now this.
 
I thought we might prevail upon the goodness (and there is alot of this!) of our classmates and the whole of Beach Hi alumni to help and contribute whatever they could in helping this daughter of our Beach Hi graduate, Class of '62, Maris King Gherman.  Maris is not a stranger to most of us, and her brother Shep King (may he rest in peace) was a pillar of strength in the community before his untimely death.  If ever there was a time to help, this is it. 
 
Doesn't seem like much more need be said.  I would appreciate this call for help being spread throughout the Beach Hi alumni, all classes.  I think it's that important.    

 
Best regards,
 
Judi Lang Robaina
Beach Hi Class of '62
