Two young boys and a woman suffered minor injuries. They were taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach. Their Dodge Caravan breached the right-of-way of a Walpole Co. truck, turning south from Martin Luther King Boulevard onto Military Trail, police said. The sugar truck overturned a few hundred feet east of the intersection, spreading its haul on the road. The driver was not hurt.

WELLINGTON The Western Communities Council voted Wednesday night to ask the Florida Turnpike Authority to help pay for the widening of Southern Boulevard between Haverhill Road and State Road 7. The council, composed of representatives from seven cities and improvement districts from Green-acres to South Bay, approved the resolution after denying a request from Greenacres to limit the road to six lanes. Palm Beach County commissioners raised Nov. 17 the amount of traffic allowed on Southern Boulevard, which is currently four lanes. The vote was 5-1 with Greenacres opposed and Belle Glade's representative absent. DELRAY BEACH Maria Morales, a leukemia patient seeking a bone marrow donor, has gone into remission after five weeks of chemotherapy at Bethesda Memorial Hospital, tests showed Tuesday night. "I'm so happy. My spirits are up again," she said. Now that she's in remission, doctors said a transplant within a month could save her life. Morales, 19, who has B-positive blood, is seeking "an angel out there" whose marrow matches hers. She is of Mexican descent, and a match likely would be found in a Hispanic donor, doctors said. Blood and bone marrow test drives were held this week and will continue Friday and next week. For information, call the Palm Beach Blood Bank at (561) 845-2323.

The council will reconsider the issue at a Dec. 17 meeting. Councilwoman Lenora Hurley, who missed the meeting because of illness, has said she opposes the project because the layout two buildings separated by an alley leaves the residents vulnerable when moving between the buildings. Neighbors also complained of the effect on surrounding property values. Council members Cinthia Becton and William Burrs voted for the plan; Marge Confrey and Marilyn Moffitt voted against it. Voted 2-1 to reimburse Confrey $15,000 in legal costs to defend her against a charge of breaking the state Sunshine Law. Confrey and Moffitt were acquitted on Nov. 21 of the charge that they discussed public business in private, although Moffitt still faces a hearing about whether she unintentionally broke the law. Legal precedent requires governments to reimburse officials who are acquitted of crimes related to their public positions, City Attorney Andrew DeGraffenreidt III said. Becton dissented, hinting that she did not agree with the verdict. "It is vital that we don't put forth information privately," she said. Confrey abstained from voting. B Voted 4-0 to approve, on first reading, an ordinance requiring all newly hired department heads to live inside the city.

Ehrlich tearfully testified Wednesday that she wanted to get out of jail and support her 4-year-old son, who now lives with Ehrlich's mother. The boy's father, Miguel Garcia, is also facing the electric chair for his role in the Nov. 21, 1996, shooting deaths of two people, including a child, during a bungled attempt to execute another man, according to police. A detective testified that Ehrlich turned off her car's headlights and drove the gunmen to the wrong West Palm Beach house. Brandon Babb, 2, and Todd Chilton, 21, were killed.
