Emirates Airlines has begun nonstop service from Broward’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) to Dubai, marking a new chapter in international air travel between Broward County and the Middle East. Mayor Barbara Sharief, Aviation Director Mark Gale, tourism officials and a host of dignitaries welcomed the Emirates Boeing 777 on Thursday, December 15. It was also the first time a 777 airplane has landed at the airport. The Dubai to Fort Lauderdale flight takes 15 hours. The airport’s central location, its “easy in, easy out” reputation, and a current partnership between Emirates and JetBlue Airways, made FLL attractive to Emirates. FLL is the second airport in Florida to have nonstop service to the Middle East. Visit FLL online.

When the holidays are long gone but your tree isn't, it's time to chip in and donate your used evergreen to our annual Chip-a-Tree initiative. Last year Broward County Parks recycled more than 5,000 trees - tons of material that would otherwise have gone to landfills. Your tree can join those recyclable thousands. To participate in the free program remove all decorations from your tree (no decorated trees will be accepted), then bring the tree to a participating park, where it will be chipped and used for landscaping throughout the park system. There is a limit of two trees per vehicle, artificial trees are not accepted, and no commercial vehicles or garbage trucks are allowed. Hours vary; visit Parks online to find a location near you.
