One of the most interesting things that was said at the Broward County budget hearings this year had nothing to do with finances. It was about babies.
Broward Property Appraiser Lori Parrish, in a budget standoff with the County Commission, mentioned during a discussion of health insurance that a whole lot of babies were born this year to employees in her office.Parrish's office is relatively small. And in just a period of a few months, seven had babies. Another is due this week.
Parrish said people are wondering what's in the drinking water there. I'm not sure, but you might want to consider it before you take a slurp.
