04 Feb Gary Rogers no longer the Garden Gnome?
Tell me it is not true — Lauderdale Lakes CRA Hack Gary Rogers dethroned as the Garden Meister. Seems like Miramar trumped Rogers and were first to the trough.
Rogers is earning awards through the CRA State group that he controls for his gardens but who else cares.
Certainly not the Feds.
And guess what folks? Miramar did it the legit way. That is through the City and the General Fund and not using the CRA like Rogers and L Lakes and exploiting the CRA at every opportunity. And if you want to see how L Lakes is exploiting the CRA there, look at the many MAOS posts on Rogers, City Manager Jon Allen and past CRA Chair Eric Haynes.
The old saying — thick as thieves?
What is Gary Rogers to do now other than chase after the women folk like he did in Cocoa?

Miramar was recognized for its “Intergenerational Fruit & Vegetable Garden” that includes a fruit grove, raised beds, a culinary herb garden, a seedling nursery and an outdoor classroom.
The grant includes monetary contributions as well as products from Scotts Miracle-Gro.
