Toastmasters Program in the Glades TOAST

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback-and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

Poll: Public Mixed on Whether Medicaid Work Requirements are to Cut Spending or to Lift People Up

From Kaiser Family Foundation: "At a time when the Trump Administration is encouraging state efforts to revamp their Medicaid programs through waivers, the latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll finds the public split on whether the reason behind proposals to impose work requirements on some low-income Medicaid beneficiaries is to lift people out of poverty or to reduce spending. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in January provided new guidance to states and has since approved such waivers in two states (Kentucky and Indiana). Eight other states have pending requests ... "

Amended Action Alert! - SB 1044 

From the National Council of Jewish Women (Palm Beaches): Senator Lauren Book pulled SB 1044, the bill she had sponsored to allow human trafficking victims to sue "facilitators", as well as traffickers. Facilitators would include hotels and motels where the victims had been trafficked -- and where staff closed their eyes and did nothing. The bill would also have allowed hotels to use training of their staff on how to recognize and report trafficking as an affirmative defense against such suits. This Senate bill, along with its House companion HB167 had passed all the other assigned committees unanimously. Human trafficking survivors, advocates and prosecutors came repeatedly to Tallahassee to testify to the unspeakable crimes that have been occurring in the state's hotels and motels. Some of the hearings were wrenching. So what happened?
