THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:
WELL, APPARENTLY IT'S A SLOW NEWS WEEK, SO .......
This and That:
ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW? WHERE IS OUR LACTATING ROOM?***
According to a Press Release issued by the 11th Judicial Circuit, there is a big shin dig happening at the Dade County Courthouse on Thursday, September 8th. Ribbon cutting, dignitaries, food and drink to be served. The occasion is the opening of a Lactation Room at the courthouse. (We wonder whether Judge Seraphin will be a guest speaker?).
So, paraphrasing Rodney Dangerfield: "Hey, we get no respect, at the GJB".
***We received an updated Press Release, which states in part:
This project, a joint effort by the County, Miami-Dade FAWL, and the Eleventh Circuit, will be the first lactation room in the Miami-Dade Courts, to be followed in the very near future by the opening of lactation rooms at our other court facilities.
“We are very proud to offer this safe, comfortable space for nursing mothers. This room will be especially useful for attorneys and other court participants who often spend many hours here and could really use a quiet space for lactation,” said the Honorable Bertila Soto, Chief Judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit.
