SOURCE: Palm Beach county. (Paul Owers) Analysts liken the building to the eruption of Weston in the 1980s and '90s, as builders pushed west toward the Everglades in crowded Broward County . "Rooftops are happening," said David Cobb, regional director for Metrostudy, a research firm that tracks the homebuilding industry in South Florida. "The Ag Reserve is an A-plus location. You can have a Delray or Boca [mailing] address, and that's very attractive to homebuyers." The developments include Seven Bridges, on Lyons Road north of Clint Moore Road, where homes feature gourmet kitchens, granite countertops and an average price tag topping $1 million. Farther north on Lyons, Valencia Cove and Valencia Bay cater to 55-and-over buyers. Each development has a large clubhouse, sit-down restaurant, pools, fitness center and card rooms. Full-time lifestyle directors organize trips, shows and activities for residents. Prices range from the mid-$400,000s to more than $600,000.

San Bernardino shooting: Can a neighbor buy guns for you? (+video) - CSMonitor.com
But the San Bernardino attacks do reveal two loopholes in gun-control laws that supporters and opponents of gun Law control laws may both highlight as evidence for their positions. Mr. Marquez bought the rifles legally three years ago, then gave them to Farook. Officers say it was done deliberately to avoid putting Farook through a background check or be recorded as the purchaser of the firearm. California's assault weapons ban has an exception for weapons like Farook'sSmith & Wesson M&P15, and Malik's DPMS A-15, if a button-release feature is added to the weapons, making the weapon's magazine fixed rather than detachable. Some gunmakers in California now specialize in adding such mechanisms. Farook and Malik had attempted to modify their guns even further, but failed to make them fire automatically. They also used two handguns, purchased legally in Corona, California. Marquez's illegal gun transfer to the couple also highlights so-called straw purchases, when a gun is bought by someone who intends to give it to someone else. According to a PBS "Frontline" report, such gun sales are often easy to spot, with both individuals visiting a gun dealer together to make the purchase, and account for a significant percentage of guns used in crimes, versus only 10-15 percent that are stolen.

Bryan Police: Criminal Activity on 'Dramatic Decline' Since 2009
An investigation with DPS took a year and a half, and it isn't over yet, all part of law enforcement's efforts to keep drugs out of area neighborhoods. "Thanks to Bryan Police Department and the task force and the drug enforcement, they've done a bang up job, and I praise them for it," said Bryan resident Angie Heinemann. In just the few months since she's lived in Bryan, Heinemann says she's noticed a change. "Even right across the street here where I live, a lot of activity has sort of slowed the roll, so to speak," she explained. According to Bryan Police, it's not just drug activity. Criminal activity overall has decreased over the past six years. "We've seen a dramatic decrease since 2009, and its steadily decreasing," said BPD Officer Kelley McKethan. In their most recent bust with DPS, eight men allegedly involved in a crack cocaine trafficking operation were taken off the streets. Three others who were already behind bars were charged. "Anytime we make an arrest like that, when you have 11 people, all arrested for the same type of offense, distributing drugs, that's a great victory," said McKethan. Majority of the arrests were made in neighborhoods on and around Martin Luther King Jr. Street. Heinemann says though she doesn't live there, the problems extend into her neighborhood as well. "It's not just on that side of town. It was right here. I'm watching eight- or nine-year old kids talk about weed and this and that," said Heinemann.
