Random News about Coral Springs, Florida

DC's ABC affiliate just ran a piece about an 8-foot alligator caught in my hometown. I still haven't figured out why this is newsworthy.

On a related note, if I were to have a book club, I'd want to read this. Coral Springs was built on drained Florida swampland, and didn't even exist before the 1960's, so it always intrigues me to hear how it really turned into a city with over 120,000 people.

I bet it had something to do with people getting old and moving to Florida.

Nah, Coral Springs is an aberration for South Florida -- the median age is only 33.8.
