MIAMI GARDENS Library closures, treating the mentally ill and the state of the fire-rescue service took center stage Tuesday when Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez hosted a town hall meeting at the North Dade Regional Library to discuss his proposed $6.3 billion budget for the new fiscal year.
What are your priorities and what do we cut? asked Marilyn Lieberman, a self-styled community activist.
Linnea Pearson, a Florida International University professor and former teacher of Travon Martins brother Jahvaris Fulton, said one of the reasons Trayvon got into trouble was because he was suspended.
As an educator, one of my concerns is that when a student gets in trouble, hes just out, said Pearson, who is fighting to save the California Club library. She proposed that the library remain open and named the Trayvon Martin Memorial Library, after the Miami Gardens teen who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012.

So, how good of job is that cart doing pulling the horse along.
Got it. Never understood that adage. Thanks.
If it contains every book he’d ever read would it need to be larger than a file folder?
But Baby Trayvon spoke 18 languages, invented fire and the wheel and was on the verge of curing all known diseases. How could he be suspended?
Fact: Tryavon Martin got suspended becasue he was a thief, druggie, criminal, street thug and Black racist!!! End of story!!!
Is Florida trying to catch up to California for the #1 lunatic state race?
That's the ticket.
Name the library for someone who never set foot in one, or ever would much less be able to spell it.
Citizens would be better served by naming the juvenile hall after him or the detention room in the high school where he spent so much of his time.
He got in trouble because he got suspended,
He got suspended because he was a thief and drug dealer.
I guess it makes sense to some people to name a Library after a Thief, Drug Dealer and attempted murderer.
Only in a black community could this happen. Free Mumia.
Might as well dedicate the library to a thief, they elected someone whose resume’ wasn’t much different.
Trayvon Martin library? Kind of ironic. Many young black stay away from libraries so as not to be accused by their peers of “acting white.”
This is what happens over the years when you have Northeastern liberals retiring to the Southern states.
Ah yes ... the modern day “carpetbagger”
it would have to be named the “Travon Martin Liberry”. Library did not exist in Travon’s vocabulary.
(Tip o' the hat to Jim Croce)
Uh, wouldn’t that be “liberry”?
Missed it by that much.

To save future Trayvon immitators we should eliminate school safety police :
therefore no police crime reports
therefore all graffitti goes unpunished
therefore no bookbag checks for weapons , drugs , or jewelry
therefore no burglary tools while comming or going to school
therefore no record of assaults, or problems on the school busses
therefore no school suspensions ,.. not that the parents would have noticed anyway
therefore there would be no drug problem in the schools - because it would go unnoticed
.. and the world would remain "peachey-keen" amid the chaos !!
Trayvon is responsible for his own actions and his own history , even dispite the "sanitizing " of his family record by lawyers
two publicists , a politically involved advertizing exectutive, and a "social engineering lawyer", et al.
Trayvon was suspended because of his troubles that went unnoticed by family.
You are right ! They have the cart before the horse !
Trayvon Martin Memorial Library, no cursive permitted!!
