Miami-Dade commissioners on Wednesday endorsed Mayor Carlos Gimenez's new slate of department heads -- including a replacement for Aviation director Emilio González, now Miami's city manager. Gimenez turned to Lester Sola to run the Aviation Department, which is dominated by Miami International Airport but includes the county's executive airports, too. This is Sola's fourth tour as a department head, having run Elections, Internal Services and, most recently, Water and Sewer.
Police officers greeted students arriving at Westlake High School in Waldorf, Maryland, with hugs and high fives to “show they care” in the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, a Facebook post made on February 20 showed. The officers from the Traffic Operations Unit made the visit as part of a plan to visit schools as students were arriving and personally greet them. The Charles County Sheriff’s Department said that, at first, the students "didn’t know what to make of it,” but that, ultimately, the officers’ presence “put smiles on the teens [sic] faces,” and they planned on continuing to visit schools.
