We’re starting a weekly newsletter. Most people find out about our articles through Facebook, which doesn’t show every article to every person who “Likes” our Facebook page. Some articles do very well, while others don’t reach many people.
We can tell a lot of people miss a lot of our articles. Some complain that all we write about is crime, when that’s at most 20% of what we cover. Others ask questions that we’ve already answered (“What’s going on with the old Walmart?”).

On December 9th, the West Boca Raton High School Vanguard performed another outstanding concert, proving that their Superior rating isn’t just for show. For the whole performance, around an hour and a half, most of the seats in the auditorium were filled with students, families, parents, and staff. The concert was full of festive, seasonal music and powerful, contemporary songs, helping kick off this holiday season.
Prompted by some recent reader reports, we took at look at the crime map for the first half of the month. We see the typical economic crimes where the stores are along 441 and Glades Road. Also notable are a bunch of car break-ins and vehicle thefts in Boca Del Mar and the Boca Pointe area.
Despite its negative reputation, there seem to have been fewer than usual crimes in West Sandalfoot (aka Watergate Estates) and east of 441 in Sandalfoot Cove.
