How blessed we have been in Dade County to have Judges Stanley Goldstein, Jeffrey Rosinek, and then Deborah White-Labora run our drug court. Stan Goldstein- former motorcycle cop- the original cop on the beat with a heart- helped found drug court and address a national epidemic. Judge Rosinek brought his unique brand of tough love to the job, and then Judge White-Labora sat during what must have been an explosion in pain killer addictions. Judge White-Labora is also justifiably proud of the new "Veteran Track" in drug court for members of our armed services who present with their own unique problems. Each judge had their ownstyle and each judge fulfilled the unofficial slogan of the court: "drug court works."
A hearty "well done, well done indeed" to Judge White-Labora. We're sure there will be a great send off party in November/December, and we'll post the details when we learn of them.
Breaking news: sit down- this is a stunner: The conditions in the Dade County Jail are unconstitutional!! The Herald shocker is here. Next up: the Herald is running down a tip that it's awfully muggy in Miami in August. Stay tuned.
