With empty carts and full of anticipation, 100 kids crammed the new Wal-Mart on 2500 West Broward Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale Tuesday to experience the holiday joy of shopping. Paired with Broward Sheriff Office staff, firefighters and deputies, the kids were given $100 to checkoff their wish list during the annual spree, Shop with a Sheriff. The men and women of the Broward Sheriffs Office are รองเท้าผู้หญิง committed year-round to serving the people in their communities. Shop with the Sheriff is one of my favorite events and one of the many ways our BSO family gives back to some of our younger residents, thanks to the generosity of the Sheriffs Foundation of Broward, said Broward Sheriff Scott Israel who welcomed the kids at the door as the shopping spree got underway. For nearly 20 years, BSOs school resource รองเท้าส้นสูงแฟชั่น deputy program has coordinated this event. Students, from elementary to high school, were selected from schools in the public safety agencys districts based on several criteria, including their conduct and financial need. Olanda Batonette, a senior at Boyd Anderson High School, spent some of her money buying gifts for her brothers but she also snagged some running shoes and clothes on her wish list. Although the true meaning of Christmas is family, its nice to do this because some of us dont receive a gift every year, she explained. Many of the kids also ended up in the electronics and toy department. Eight year old Chase Benner bought three Lego sets with his $100 while 10-year-old Janiya Duncan bought a camera so she and her friends could take pictures to remember the day. It makes you so happy and your Christmas so warm and special, said Kim Andor who works for the Undersheriff.

Lippolis, 82, passed away Tuesday after spending nearly half a century 47 years at his downtown store. According to his obituary, Lippolis was born in Noci, Italy, where he apprenticed as a cobbler under his father and developed his craft as a shoemaker before coming to the United States. Lippolis epitomizes what immigration is all about in this country, Agostinelli said. He was one of the finest Americans, he continued, saying Lippolis didnt have a bad bone in his body and always wanted the best for his family. Hes what the American dream is all about, Agostinelli said. I cant say enough good things about the guy. Town Clerk Joseph Camposeo said he knew Lippolis very well, as their families hailed from the same area of Italy. He was a wonderful man, he said, and a great shoemaker. รองเท้าส้นสูงพร้อมส่ง Camposeo noted Lippolis store had equipment dating back to the early and mid-1900s, equipment that Camposeos own uncle turned over to the store when he retired. Tana Parseliti, manager of Manchesters Downtown Special Services District, said Lippolis was a fixture on Main Street whose work was of the highest quality. He took your shoes and made them new again, she said. Walking into his store was like stepping back in time. He was not of a lot of words, but he was a good man. Its sad, she continued.
