Lois Frankel and Brian Mast were the guest speakers. to support veterans and their families who are pursuing their education at PBSC. It features a lounge for social and recreational activities, study areas, a computer lab, tutor ing, mentoring, academic and career advis ing, and other services. It replaces a onestop center that the College established in to create more space and offer comprehen sive services for veterans and their families, PBSC renovated a Criminal Justice building to establish the new freestanding Veterans Success Center. The center was made possible because of an $800,000 one-time appropriation approved by the Florida Legislature in 2016 and backed by former state Sen. Maria Sachs, who served as chair of the event. PBSC President Ava L. Parker recog nized Sachs for her support, along with the 2016 members of the Palm Beach County legislative delegation. Sachs, a champion of veterans and whose late father served in World War II and Vietnam, thanked Parker, whose father also served in the military, for her leadership in seeing the facility come to fruition. She said there are 15,000 veterans living within proximity of the Veterans Suc cess Center. Without her guidance, her motivation and her stubbornnessthis never would have happened, Sachs said of Parker, not ing that its not easy getting money from the Legislature. It has been said that the greatest casualty of war is to be forgotten, Sachs told the crowd seated underneath a tent outside the Veterans Success Center. So we are here today to dedicate ourselves, on behalf of the leadership of this state college, that no veteran will ever be forgotten here in Palm Beach County. We will remember them. We will educate them. We will serve them, and we will make sure that when they come back from whatever war, whatever service they did, that the road back to normalcy is Frankel, whose son is a Marine Corps veteran who served in Afghanistan and to reauthorize a grant program for colleges and universities to establish similar centers. She hopes to get it passed. The physical and the emotional transi tion coming from the military can be very rough. So many of our men and women slip through the cracks when they come home. Thats why what were doing here today is just such a blessing for our com munity, she said. Mast, who served in the U.S. Army for more than 12 years, earning the Bronze Star Medal, the Army Commendation Medal for Valor, the Purple Heart Medal, and the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, said the campus is blessed to have veterans walking I think that everybody whos a part of this school knows that, and thats why they worked so hard to make sure they have a Veterans Success Center, he said, noting While deployed in Afghanistan, he worked as a bomb disposal expert under the elite Joint Special Operations Command. The last improvised explosive device that he found resulted in catastrophic injuries, which included the loss of both of his legs. PBSC serves more than 1,100 veterans and their families. The College also has facilities for veterans on its Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton campuses.

Former Hallan dale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper was arrested on felony charges in January after serving as the citys mayor since 2003. A day later, she was suspended by Gov. Scott. She has since pleaded not guilty to the charges and like Haynie, is hoping to clear her name. One person who has successfully undergone that process recently though is former Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi. Pizzi was arrested on corruption charges in August 2013 after a two-year investigation, but just over a year later, he was found not guilty. His attorneys almost immediately called Gov. Scott to get him reinstated as the Miami Lakes mayor, but they would have hoped. Gov. Scott refused to lift Pizzis suspension, even though Florida Statute 112.51(6) states or is otherwise cleared of the charges which were the basis of the arrest, indictment, or information by reason of which he or she was suspended under the provisions of this section, then the Governor shall forth with revoke the suspension and result, in order to force the governor to reinstate him to his former position. The Florida Supreme Court sided with Pizzi in December 2014, but even after he won the lawsuit, Gov. Scott still did not reinstate him. Pizzi followed that up with a reinstatement lawsuit, which was ruled in his favor in March 2015.

Zimit appeared in court on Oct. 26 without Haynie, as she does not need to attend any of the hearings which precede her trial. Judge Kelley scheduled another to a date being set. If Haynie is found guilty of any of the charges against her during the trial, Singer will continue as Boca Ratons mayor, how term ends in March 2020, Haynie will have an opportunity to sit in the mayors seat again.
