Redevelopment on a roll

Treasure Coast Regional Planning council chosen
to re-evaluate Riviera Beach's redevelopment plan


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
SINGER ISLAND -
What changes do resi-
dents, business owners
and city officials want to
see to their city and can a
compromise be reached?
Thirty-three years after
the Riviera Beach City
Redevelopment Agency
was formed, the question
remains on the table.
Meanwhile, the CRA has
spent at least '$5.6 mil-
lion searching for the
answer, according.to a
state audit performed
last year.
The actual amount the
CRA has spent is more


than $5.6 million since
the audit only examined
the city's and CRA's
spending from Oct. 1,
2004 through Nov. 30,
2005. The CRA spent
more money- this past
year to bring in Bernard
Kinsey, former Xerox
executive and co-chair-
man of Rebuild Los
Angeles, to serve as lead
negotiator for its rede-
velopment projects. Mr.
Kinsey was paid $3,000 a
day when he was work-
ing for Riviera Beach and
also compensated for his
travel expenses between
Florida and his home in
California.
The CRA spent approx-


imately $1 million for the
creation of the original
plan when the develop-
ment part of the redevel-
opment process was
undertaken in 1999, and
has spent money since
then trying to implement
it, said CRA executive
director Floyd Johnson.
Based on the tax incre-
ment this past fiscal year,
the CRA has had a budg-
et of approximately $3
million to work with, he
said.
The CRA has also faced
other issues that have
interfered with redevel-
oping the city. Three new

Gov. Crist clamors for climate change


JeffAtwater
appointed to
climate change
action team

BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH -
Gov. Charlie Crist has com-
piled a team of legislators,
professors, industry execu-
tives and environmental
experts to work on climate
change in Florida.
Sen. Jeff Atwater, R-
North Palm Beach, was
appointed to serve on the
21-member team. The
team will address short-
and long-term solutions
for climate change, which
refers to any change in the
earth's climate or weather
patterns, such as tempera-
ture and rainfall. One of


Adene Borg


the main causes of climate
change is the concentra-
tions of greenhouse gas
emissions, large volcanic
eruptions, changes in
ocean currents and the
intensity of sunlight,
according to iww.florida-
climatechange.com.
The team working on
reducing the impact of
emissions to the climate is
a diverse mix of individuals
who offer different per-
spectives, said Sen. Atwa-
ter, who has served on the,
Natural Resources Com-
mittee and is currently a
member of the Public Util-
ities Committee.
As a sitting member of
the legislature, Sen. Atwa-
ter will contribute to the'
team by providing legisla-
tive realities for standards
the team wants to accom-
plish, details on the gov-
ernment's financial ability
to allocate funds for the


team's initiatives and a
timeline for the legislative
process once the team has
put items together, he said.
The team's mission is to
reduce greenhouse gas
emissions, propose
changes to existing laws
and further ways to better
use diverse energy
resources, as stated in a
press release from Gov.
Crist's office.
Greenhouse gas emis-
sions include carbon diox-
ide, methane and nitrous
oxide. They are referred to
as greenhouse gases
because, like greenhouses,
they let sunlight through,
but reflect the heat like the
glass in a greenhouse does.
SThe reflection traps heat in
space and increases the
Earth's temperature,
according to www.florida-
climatechange.conm.
However, while this is a
natural setup and keeps


the planet from becoming
too cold to sustain life,
with more and more activi-
ty, the amount of gases
trapping the heat may
increase too much, and
thus cause the Earth to
become too hot, like
Venus, where tempera-
tures average 500 degrees
Celsius (which is 932
degrees Fahrenheit),
according to www.world:
watch.org.
Problems in Florida that
can be attributed to cli-
mate change in the future
include less rainfall, but
heavier downpours, as well
as a rise in sea level caused
by the higher temperature
here in the winter and by
the glaciers melting into
the water from warmer
temperatures in the arctic
regions, said Camille

MacArthur Park
.celebrating
International
Literacy Day

BY SARAH STOVER
Staffwriter
NORTH PALM BEACH -
A visit to a state park is
educational, but this
month Florida parks are
offering education in the
form of story times, as well
as animals, plants and
ecosystems.
John D. MacArthur Beach
State Park, located at 10900
State Route 703, or A1A, in
North Palm Beach, is one of
the state parks hosting an
event on International Lit-
eracy Day, which is Satur-
day, Sept. 8. It is the first
year the parks are celebrat-
ing it, said Art Carton, a
park service specialist at
MacArthur.
The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion's Florida Park Service
partnered with the Volun-
teer Florida Foundation,
Just Read, Florida!, the
Florida Literacy Coalition,
and the Adult and Commu-
nity Educators of Florida to
sponsor reading and litera-
cy activities in state parks
for this year's event, of
which the theme is "Just
Read, Florida!", according
to a resolution from Gov.
Charlie Crist and his cabi-
net.
"We think our state parks
not only offer so many
recreational opportunities,
but educational opportuni-
ties as well, and literacy is
part of that," said Chris

In the wake of cata-
strophic flooding through-
out the country many cities
are examining their flood
hazard areas and response
systems to see how they
rate.
Case in point, Palm
Beach Gardens has budget-
ed $5.6 million for its Storm
Water System Improve-
ment Project for drainage
improvements and has


spent nearly $3.5 million on
projects to date.
The city has been recog-
nized for its improvement
by the National Flood
Insurance Program and
that could mean savings for
residents.
The voluntary incentive
program is part of the Fed-
eral Emergency Manage-
ment Agency. Its purpose is
to provide incentives to
communities which exceed
the minimum flood
requirements.
The rating that the city


received was a Class 8,
based on a scale from 1
through 8, with Class 1
being the best.
"We just went through
our five-year cycle visit by
officials from the National
Flood Insurance Program's
Community Rating System
and I think we did pretty
well," said Richard Marrero,
planner for the growth
development for Palm
Beach Gardens. "We will
know in the near future
whether or not we improve
our class rating to 7."


The Class 8 rating means
that the National Flood
Insurance Program will
allow residents to receive a
10 percent discount off
flood insurance premiums.
The discount could be as
great as 45 percent with a
category rating of 1.
"We are constantly work-
ing on improving our storm
water and drainage systems
and have several capital
improvement projects that
have either been complet-
ed or are to be completed,"
said Mr. Marrero.


The Storm Water System
Improvement Project has
completed three of its
seven phases since 2005
and Phase 3 was finished in
May.
"Phase 3 was comprised
of the Thompson River
Canal.(Holly Drive to 1-95),
Larch Street north to Hick-
ory Drive and Larch street
south to Vision (Vision One
development),", said Mr.
Marrero. "This project has
been completed at a cost of

students attending two-year
institutions and their mission
is to support and encourage
an under-served population
of college students, said J.
Mark Davis, President of the
Coca-Cola Scholarship Foun-
dation.
"This program is an exten-
sion of our long-standing
commitment to college edu-
cation throughout the United
States," said Mr. Davis: "These
fine students, who often jug-
gle school, work and family,
continue to give back to their
communities through volun-
teer service."
As opposed to some college
students who attend four-
year institutions and can
focus purely on their studies,
many of these scholarship
winners have additional
responsibilities to their jobs
and to their families, said Jen-
nifer Grizzle, spokeswoman
for Coca-Cola Scholarship
Foundation.
Our foundation focuses on
the student who not only
achieve more academically
but who use their time to help
their community, said Ms.
Grizzle.
She added, "The student
that receives our scholar-
ships, like Brittany Jenkins,
have a great snsne of commu-
nity involvement and have
volunteered at least 100 hours
in the past year in addition to
their studies and other
responsibilities."
"It means a lot to me to
have' gotten involved at
young age with the Compre-
hensive AIDS Program and
felt as a peer facilitator I was a7
role model by promoting
responsible behavior," said
Ms. Jenkins.
"I continue to educate and
advocate, for the prevention
and cure for one of the world's
deadliest diseases,
HIV/AIDS," said Ms. Jenkins.
As some teenagers are
going wayward, others have
the eagerness and heartfelt
responsibility to change the
world positively.
"Brittany has been planted
in community involvement
since the age of 13 and she
continues to outreach," says
her mother, Tamara Jenkins.
"She's continuing to seek a
higher level of education and
this (award) was the fruit of

cia Anderson.
her labor."
Ms. Jenkins will be going to
Florida Atlantic University in
the spring of 2008 and study-
ing finance in completion of
her secondary education.
"My contribution to the
business world within the
next six to ten years will be
insurmountable because of
my drive and economical
scope," said Ms. Jenkins.
"After college, I would like
to work for an accounting
firm or corporation and get
that under my belt and even-
tually own a business," said
Ms. Jenkins.
Faculty, teachers and staff
at Palm Beach Community
College recognized Ms. Jenk-
ins' abilities and hired her as a
student ambassador.
The student ambassador
represents a cross-section of
PBCC students and provides
a link between prospective
students, faculty and
resources, said Ms. Jenkins.
Her role as ambassador,
she says, offers a realistic
expectation of college life and
supports students by helping
them sm6bthly transition
into college.
"After working with her (as
student ambassador) she did
a great job, she is very enthu-
siastic, full of excitement and
shows tremendous dedica-
tion to her studies," said,"
Thomas Ferazzoli, outreach
director for Palm Beach Com-
munity College.
"I think she will succeed in


everything she tries in life."
Ms. Jenkins, along with her
studies, ambassadorship and
community work, can add
being a Phi Theta Kappa to
her resume, which is an inter-
Snational honors society with
more than 2 million members
whose focus is on encourag-
ing academic achievement.
The Coca-Cola Scholarship
Foundation maintains con-
stant communication of its
scholarship winners and
shares their life stories, thus
helping motivate other stu-
dents to go after the scholar-
ships and excel in school and
career, said Ms. Grizzle.
The Coca-Cola scholarship
program has given $32 mil-
lion in scholarships over the
past 18 years and will contin-
ue to support these students,
according to Ms. Grizzle.
Ms. Jenkins encourages
students who may have
financial difficulties to look
for funding through grants,
programs and on the Inter-
net.
"A student has to be proac-
tive and resourceful in finding
scholarships," said Ms. Jenk-
ins. "Scholarships are posted
on the Web and are available
through the community col-
lege or the universities finan-
cial aid office," she added.
"I will continue to do com-
munity service," said Ms.
Jenkins. "I will also continue
my outreach within the com-
munity regarding AIDS
awareness programs."

Plaza sold

The Palm Court Plaza, located at 11911 U.S. 1 in North Palm
Beach, was recently purchased by Eleven Nine Eleven, LLC of
Boca Raton.
The selling price was listed at $7.7 million, but the property
was purchased with a $6.5 million loan from Sterling Bank.
Dockerty Romer and Co. of Delray Beach arranged the financing.
The seller's name was not disclosed, nor was contact informa-
tion for Eleven Nine Eleven, LLC. Jamen Lachs, an associate of
Dockerty and Romer spoke on behalf of the buyer.
The plaza currently consists of a three-story mixed-use build-
ing of 49,449 square feet that was built in 1986.
"It's a fantastic piece of real estate. In terms of location, (some-
one could not) get better than that," said Mr. Lachs.
It is currently 75 percent full.
"I know the developer plans on putting a significant amount of
money into the building, especially into the common area and
landscape," said Mr. Lachs.
The buyer also plans on filling the vacancies, he said.
Mr. Lachs told www.globest.com, a commercial real estate
news Web site, that the purchaser is a turn-around specialist.
Although he is uncertain if the buyer plans to flip this property,
based on his client's track record, he would not be surprised if
that was the modus operandi, he said.

Restaurant lease renewed
Randy Epstein, owner of Continental Catering and Peas and
Carrots Concessions, will continue to provide the food and bev-
erages at the North Palm Beach Country Club's restaurant.
The Village Council unanimously voted to enter into a new
lease agreement with Mr. Epstein at its meeting on Aug. 23.
Mr. Epstein had entered into a lease with the Village in October
2006.
The new lease covers five years. It does not contain a termina-
tion for cause section, said Len Rubin, theVillage's attorney. .
As part of the lease agreement, Peas and Carrots will serve as
the exclusive food and beverage vendor for North Palm Beach
events. As such, Mr. Epstein agreed to a request from the coun-
cil's president pro tem David Norris to add details about what
Peas and Carrots has to provide as the exclusive vendor.
"We love being here in the Village and I look forward to being
here another nine years," said Mr. Epstein.

Engineering contract questioned
The Village of North Palm Beach has used SFRN, a West Palm
Beach-based engineering firm, for its engineering needs since
2003. However, in light of the ongoing investigation of former
Palm Beach County Commissioner Warren Newell, who was a
partner at SFRN, and the resignation of SFRN's founder Dan
Shalloway, members of the Village council have questioned if
they should maintain their contract with the firm.
Mr. Shalloway and Mr. Newell are accused of hiding money
Mr. Newell was paid for county commission projects through the
accounting records of SFRN in court documents, according to
published reports.
Councilman Darryl Aubrey suggested theVillage terminate the
contract with the engineering firm at the meeting on Aug. 23.
"Given all of the irregularities in that firm's history, it's just not
prudent to do business with them anymore," said Mr. Aubrey.
The other council members felt a representative from the firm
should be able to plead their case before the council.decides to

terminate the contract. Village manager Jimmy Knight has asked
SFRN to send a staff member to the next council meeting for a
discussion. Andre Rayman, a partner who recently took over as
president of the firm, will probably speak at the meeting, said
Gary Schweikhart, the spokesman for SFRN.
The next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m.

charged with battery on a
person 65 years of age or
older. Ms. Hand, 33, and
Ms. Lafollette, 19, were
charged with third-degree
grand larceny in addition
to the charges listed above.,
Ms. Lafollette was also
charged with grand larce-
ny of a firearm and a
weapon offense. In addi-
tion to these charges, Mr.
Daniels' license had been
suspended and Ms. Hand
had a warrant out for her
arrest for a failing to
appear for a previous mis-
demeanor.
Mr. Labbee called police
after the incident at his
apartment at 11370 Twelve
Oaks Way on Aug. 27. He
told the dispatcher he had


been robbed at gunpoint,
as stated in the probable
cause affidavit.
Ms. Hand had called Mr.
Labbee to see if she could
visit him, and he had
agreed. Ms. Hand brought
Ms. Lafollette with her to
the apartment and told Mr.
Labbee that Mr. Daniels
was waiting for them
downstairs. They had
arrived around 2:45 p.m.,
and Ms. Lafollette left
shortly afterward. Ms.
Hand and Mr. Labbee visit-
ed until he left for a home-
owners association meet-
ing at 6:30 p.m., and Ms.
Hand stayed at the apart-
ment while he was gone.
Shortly after he returned
from the meeting at 7:45
p.m., Ms. Lafollette, who
had returned to the apart-
ment, handcuffed one of
his arms and tried to take
his wallet while restraining
his other arm, Mr. Labbee
told North Palm Beach
Detective Javier Ortiz in
his sworn statement.
Ms. Lafollette then went
into Mr. Labbee's studio
and fired a .38 caliber
revolver through the wall.
She came out of the studio
pointing it at Mr. Labbee,
according to the affidavit.
She called Mr. Daniels
up to the apartment, and
he forcibly led Mr. Labbee

into the bathroom and
handcuffed him to the rail-
ing on the shower wall. Mr.
Daniels then took Mr.
Labbee's wallet and car
keys, and Mr. Labbee
noticed Ms. Lafollette pull
the phone line cables off
the walls before the trio
left, as he stated in the affi-
davit.
During the preliminary
investigation, Detective
Ortiz noted that a .38 cal-
iber revolver, a 22 Fron-
tiersman semi- automatic
pistol, a silver four-door
Chevy vehicle, $160 in
cash, two wrist watches, a
gold pen and several credit
and debit cards were taken
during the robbery.
North Palm Beach Police
alerted other departments
throughout the county to
be on the lookout for a car
matching the description.
West Palm Beach .police
officer A. Irwing stopped
the car around 2:47 a.m.,
and notified the North
Palm Beach police, who
met him where he had
stopped the car. Detective
Ortiz recognized the three
from photos selected by
Mr. Labbee earlier. When
he searched Mr. Daniels,
he found a credit card of
Mr. Labbee's and a watch
matching the description
of one that had been
stolen. When he searched
the vehicle, the other
stolen items were present,
according to the affidavit.
All three were arrested
and booked into the Palm
Beach County Jail, said
George Warren, assistant
director of Public Safety in
North Palm Beach.
A call to prisoner infor-
mation records confirmed
all three were still being
held at the jail as of Aug.
31.
Mr. Labbee had filed an
affidavit of prosecution on
Aug. 27, and stated he
wished to prosecute the
offenders, according to the
probable cause affidavit.
Calls to Mr. Labbee for
comment were not
returned by press time.

JUPITER/PALM BEACH
GARDENS Jiggling the
handle may not help in this
situation.
Local police are looking
for the person who has
been stealing brass back-
flow prevention valves off
water hookups outside var-
ious businesses in Jupiter,
Palm Beach Gardens and
surrounding jurisdictions.
The removal of the
devices, which range in
price from $1,100 to $1,700,
has caused dropping water
pressure inside the busi-
nesses' plumbing and sent
water shooting at least 10
feet into the air from
exposed copper water lines
outside.
From Aug. 17-19, six
devices were stolen in
Jupiter, two in Lake Park,
three in Palm Beach Gar-
dens and nine in the sur-
rounding Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office
jurisdiction.
The Jupiter and Palm
Beach Gardens police
departments are now work-
ing together to find the
individual.

sonal use, if they own a
business. Who knows?"
Detective Frank said. "If you
own a plumbing business or
are a contractor doing
plumbing (work), it's a way
to get the materials cheap."
In Palm Beach Gardens, a
video surveillance camera
captured a suspect stealing
the devices from Seacoast
Utility located in Palm
Beach Gardens.
And the person worked
fast with police clocking
the entire operation at less
than 30 seconds, Detective
Frank said.
In Palm Beach Gardens,
three incidents were report-
ed from Aug. 13 20 at Sea-
coast Utility.
"I was. dispatched to a
possible pipe that was bro-
ken shooting water every,"
said Veronica Rodriguez,
Palm Beach Gardens police
officer. "Seacoast advised
that the back flows are
made of copper and worth a
lot of money when sold for
salvage."

nearly $2,000 worth of back-
flow devices.
In Jupiter, most of the
thefts occurred at business-
es on U.S. 1 and Alternate

Albertson's and Bluffs
plazas.
They included Grand
Slam Fishing on Alternate
A1A, Turtle River Montes-
sori School, Ocean Magic,
Cool Corner, Salt Water
Endeavors and LaVie Spa.
Grand 'Slam Fishing
employee Steven Adams
said that when he arrived
for work around 5:15 a.m.
on Aug. 18, water was
shooting up in the air and
the businesses' parking lot
and street were flooded.
He reported the leak to
the town, then called a
plumber, who fixed the leak
by8 a.m.
At Ocean Magic Surf
Shop, located off U.S. 1, the
valve was actually taken
from the piping of an old
bathroom that is no longer
in use, sparing the shop
from inconveniences.

"The old one was not
secured down like the new
one is, which is on heavier
pipes," manager 'Matt
Cariseo said. "A (Town of
Jupiter employee) told us
that most- can be wriggled
and ripped out of the
ground pretty easily, but I
guess our newer one was
more (solid)."
For others, the theft was
more significant.
Saltwater Endeavors
owner Megan Brooks was
forced to close her saltwater
aquarium business for two
days, losing an estimated
$8,000 to $10,000 in busi-
ness not to mefition the
cost of the new valve and
installation, which cost
nearly $2,000; she said.
"We don't use that water
for tanks, but without it, we
can't clean nets, tubes and
other instruments needed
for the maintenance of
tanks," she said. "It was a
huge inconvenience, and I
would have never dreamed
this could happen. It's sad."

Not just Florida

I am responding to "Shirtless and Toothless"(rant).
When I go to New York, I find many people lying on the
streets shivering in the dead of winter, covered up with
cardboard and begging for money. I'll bet they wish
they had a trailer to live in like a lot of people have in
warm, sunny Florida.
Also, about the toothless remark, I have witnessed
plenty of undesirable looking people in New York It
seems that lots of the men have mullet haircuts and
wear "wife beater" tank tops. Some women are stuck in
the '80s with their big hair, heavy makeup and long,
fake nails.
There are trailers, homeless, toothless, shirtless, and
undesirable-looking people in every state and educat-
ed people realize this. I think people should take a look
at themselves on the inside and realize what really
matters in life and it's not whether you live in a trailer
or happen to be shirtless when you are interviewed by
the media.

What's the story?
I've noticed a recent trend in police reports, "Crime
Stoppers," etc., of arrests in North Palm Beach for pos-
session of cocaine, marijuana, narcotics and drug
paraphernalia.
Why is our little village making arrests of people liv-
ing north and south of us?
I think there may be a story here.

Take down the birdfeeder
I bought a bird feeder. I'hung it on;my back porch
and filled it with birdseed.
Within a week we had lots of birds taking advantage
of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible
food.
But then the birds started building nests in the
boards of the patio, above the table and next to the
barbecue.
Then came the poop.It was everywhere. It was on the
patio tile, the chairs, the table and everywhere.
Then some of the birds turned mean and aggressive.
They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even
though I had fed them out of my own pocket.
Many of the birds were boisterous and loud.
They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed
at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I
fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back
porch anymore.
I took down the bird feeder, and in three days the
birds were gone.


Thanks for a great event
To the editor:

What a great evening to celebrate one of our own long-
time pioneers, Carlin White. The Carlin White Bridge was
dedicated on Aug. 24 at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and
Museum with more than 125 people in attendance,
The cool breeze, the wonderful location along the Intra-
coastal waterway and the many friends of Carlin who
came to celebrate him, made the experience very heart-


Vktkr


I cleaned up their mess and took down the many
nests they had built all over the patio.
Soon, the back yard was like it used to be; quiet,
,serene and no birds demanding rights to a free meal.
Now let's see.
Our government gives out free food, subsidized hous-
ing, free medical care, free education and allows any-
one born here to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands.
Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services.
Small apartments are housing five families. You have to
wait six hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor.
Your child's second-grade class is behind other schools
because more than half of the class doesn't speak Eng-
lish. Cereal now comes in bilingual boxes. I have to
press "1" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other than Old Glory are squawking
and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights
and free liberties.
Maybe it's time for the government to take down the
bird feeder.

FEMA
So much for privacy. Last week I received a phone
call, saw an article in a newspaper and got a letter from
FEMA. Now my address, along with many others, will
be listed in the newspapers as a FEMA recipient.
What about honesty, integrity and serving the general
public fairly?
My house, which was to be my primary residence,
was damaged during two hurricanes.
FEMA gave me money and then asked for it back.
My storage bin, which contained my lifetime of pos-
sessions, was destroyed. I sustained losses of more than
$25,000 with no FEMA assistance.
Instead of listing the addresses of people who receive
money from FEMA, why isn't the media looking closely
at FEMA and how it operates?
Look at how they gave many people in South Florida


warming.
Many thanks to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Muse-
um for use of its grounds and wonderful hospitality in
helping us prepare for the event.
The gift of the "Loxahatchee Lament" to everyone who
attended was a wonderful gesture. What a great facility we
have in our community. Thank you, Jamie Stuve and your
gracious staff for making the event just perfect.
I would also thank the many antique car owners from
the Early Ford V-8 Club, The Treasure Coast Antique Car
Club and Lee Henderson and friends for the antique fire
engine which led the caravan. It was quite a sight to see


money for generators when the storm didn't even hit


money for generators when the storm didn't even hit
their area.

Tax reform will push people out of Florida
Remember how this governor and legislature (failed)
us on insurance reform?
Now they want to do it again on property taxes.
There will be more homes for sale (and) more people
leaving Florida (because they) can't afford insurance or
the new tax reforms.
The new tax reform is not good for average citizen or
the retired.
Longtime homesteaders are left out of the "super
exemption." The new tax will allow potential assess-
ment cap increases ... and the county governments can
override the super exemption cap.
Do you trust them?
State and local government don't want to give up
their gravy train.
Without our 3 percent cap, taxes will increase.
The politicians wanted to get rid of "Save our Homes"
for a long time, and now they figured a way to dupe the
public.
Moving companies said they are moving more people
out of Florida than into Florida. People in other states
are buying elsewhere because they heard (about) our
politicians and our insurance situation.
Better start planning that move out of Florida.

Shouldn't get money.because of tragic events
I still can't get over the money the victims got from
(the) Sept. 11 Twin Tower collapse.
Now, what about the Minneapolis bridge collapse and
the coal miners families?
The New Yorkers should never have received all that
money to become millionaires.
There is always tragedy. That's called life.


the old cars lined up on the bridge to help with the rib-
bon-cutting, thencaravan back to the Jupiter Inlet Light-
house & Museum.
The JTJB Chamber of Commerce is delighted to have
been part of leaving a "community footprint" to a long
time pioneer and friend of Jupiter, Carlin
White. Happy 100th Birthday, Carlin!

council members were
elected this past March
and council members
Jim Jackson and Norma
Duncombe were elected
the year before. In addi-
tion to a new council,
which also sits as the
CRA board, an amend-
ment to the state's con-
stitution in November
prohibits the govern-
ment from transferring
private property taken
by eminent domain to a
person or developer. The
council had previously
signed a deal with Viking
Inlet Harbor Properties,
the master developer of
the redevelopment proj-
ect, to allow the use of
eminent domain to com-
plete the project.
Some progress has
been made over the past
few years though, said
Mr. Johnson.
"We've selected a mas-
ter developer (Viking).
2700 (a condominium
building being built by
Palm Beach Gardens.
developer Catalfumo)
and the Marina Grande
(another condominium
building) are within the
CRA area," he said.
However,, with the
changes and the find-
ings of the auditor gen-
eral's report came the
need to go back to the
drawing board. The CRA
is re-evaluating the
redevelopment plan.
"We will have to get
more realistic in
(regards to) some of the
aspects of the magni-
tude of the plan," said
Mr. Johnson.
For example, the cur-
rent plan proposes six
condominium towers
near the Riviera Beach
Marina, and that is not
realistic with the way the
c-'dominium market is
going, he said.
The Riviera Beach City
Redevelopment Agency's
board unanimously
voted to have the Trea-
sure Coast Regional
Planning Council help
them with the re-evalu-
tion on Aug. 29.
The Riviera Beach CRA


was created in 1974 to
develop the Inlet Harbor
Plan for 858 acres, which
encompasses a mile and
a half of a portion of Riv-
iera Beach that is along
the Lake Worth shore
and the Atlantic Ocean
on Singer Island. The
plan was later revised in
2000 and 2001. The main
goal was to create a
"total environment con-
cept, which allows peo-
ple to visit, live, work,
shop, play and relax"
within a single urban
environment, as stated
in the Inlet Harbor
Booklet on the CRA's
website.
The Treasure Coast
Regional Planning
Council, a not-for-profit
organization created in
1976 through an inter-
local agreement
between the counties it
serves Indian River,
Martin, St. Lucie and
Palm Beach will help
the city achieve that
goal. It assists local gov-
ernments with planning
and growth-manage-
ment programs. The
council's team of design-
ers, architects, trans-
portation engineers and
retail consultants covers
every aspect of redevel-
opment.
"We normally get
called (as a last resort),"
said Michael Busha, the
TCRPC's executive direc-
tor who came before the
CRA board at the last
meeting.
The council has
responded to calls for
help from Fort Pierce and
Lake Worth, among other
cities, and has returned to
those cities when they
sought further improve-
ments. The council cred-
its its success to its char-
rette process, which is a
high speed, creative
design process, said Mr.
Busha.
A charrette involves the
city's staff, council and
residents in the design
process.
"If you don't (include
everyone), your job (as a
city council) becomes


Flow

almost impossible. (The
process) helps to build
back trust in the commu-
nity," said Mr. Busha.
"Nothing is more
important to Riviera
Beach's credibility then
(the hiring) of a 'neutral
consultant.' There are far
too many bad feelings
and mistrust regarding
previous consultants and
the new council can only
benefit by trying a new
approach where the pub-
lic is involved in deci-
sions being made on their
public property," said
Singer Island resident
Roger Butts.
The planning council's
process includes inter-
views held with residents,
city council and staff to
find out more about the
municipality prior to the
charrette. Then the char-
rette is held for at least
seven days, and a final
presentation of the mas-
ter plan that was drafted
as a result of the charrette
will be given ten weeks
later, as stated in a hand-
out Mr. Busha provided at
the meeting.
"Residents who work
can still be involved in
the process because we
relocate here while we're
working on the plans and
our studios are open from
9 a.m. to midnight," said
Mr. Busha.
Although the council is
currently busy with proj-
ects from other cities, and
Riviera Beach would nor-
mally have to wait until
May 2008, the council will
start work on the city's
plans in late October or
early November, said Mr.
Busha.
"I have a soft spot for
Riviera," he added.
The charrette, which is
the beginning process,
costs between $150,000
and $200,000, he added.
The scope of work, cost
and other details will be
discussed at the next CRA
meeting, said Mr. John-
son.
The next meeting is
scheduled for Wednes-
day, Sept. 12 at 6:30 p.m.


just over 2 million."
"We have seen notice-
able improvements in
areas that were prone to
flooding in the past, due to
our preemptive meas-
ures," said C.R. Brown,
deputy chief for the Palm
Beach Gardens Fire Res-
cue.
Flooding in the United
States is the most costly
type of disaster. From 1996
to 2005 flooding has cost
the country an average of
$2.4 billion per year,
according to FEMA's Web
site.
It is estimated that
flooding in a home could
cost the' homeowner
$26,285 for 18 inches of
water and approximately
$7,800 per inch.
Some of the myths asso-
ciated with flood insur-
ance have been that flood
insurance cannot be pur-
chased if the home is
located in a high-risk flood
area.
According to the Nation-
al Flood Insurance Pro-
gram flood insurance can
be purchased no matter
where the property is
located. This program cre-
ated in 1968 was enacted
to provide people with
flood insurance in at risk
areas.
Another common myth
is that homeowners insur-
ance covers flooding dam-
age. Most do not.
Flood insurance pur-
chased through National
Flood Insurance Program
is approximately $300 per
year for about $100,000 in
coverage, according to the
FEMAWeb site.
In the western areas of
Palm Beach County, sur-


'The worst-case scenario for Palm Beach
Gardens and the county would be a category
5 hurricane that stalled over our area."

Deputy Chief C.R. Brown
Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue


rounding Lake Okee-
chobee, the primary flood
threat would involve the
potential of the lake over-
flowing and breaching the
Herbert Hoover Dike that
helps contain the lake.
The worst case scenario
occurred in 1928 when a
hurricane killed thou-
sands in western Palm
Beach County. Much safer
systems are in place
throughout the but the
threat is not improbable.
"The worst-case sce-
nario for Palm Beach Gar-
dens and the county
would be a category 5 hur-
ricane that stalled over our
area," said deputy chief
Brown. "This would over-
whelm the local and
regional drainage systems
ability to overcome the
amount of rain."
It would create wide-
spread catastrophic dam-
age affecting the ability to
rapidly recover, he added.
Over the years, hurri-
canes have been the main
culprit for flooding. Since
1903, there have been
more than 30 significant
floods in Palm Beach
County alone.
Evacuation systems
have been increasingly
updated in recent years,
however there is much
needed to be done.
"We have in place a
storm water management


plan and that is continual-
ly updated and complet-
ed," said Mr. Marrero.
The flood warning sys-
tem in place for Palm
Beach County works in
cooperation with the
National Weather Service
who monitor the rain flow.
For the city of Palm
Beach Gardens the first
responders in the event of
a flood would include the
fire rescue, police traffic
control and rescue and the
public works department.
"Some of the biggest
dangers in floods are obvi-
ous, like high-water and
lack of visibility while driv-
ing," said deputy chief
Brown.
Some less obvious are
electrical emergencies,
allergic reaction from bites
by floating insects, and
tainted water.
During a storm the city
works closely with the
Northern Palm Beach
County Improvement Dis-
trict and the South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict to insure that storm
waters are monitored and
released as needed to
decrease the chance of
flooding, said deputy chief
Brown.

Valves
From page A5


Ms. Brooks said she is currently sketch-
ing out plans for a safety structure
around the valve, built to prevent any
future thefts.
Once caught, the thief would face
charges of grand theft and criminal mis-
chief, Detective Frank said.
If police determine that the valves were
being sold for scrap value, the thief
would also be charged with dealing in
stolen property.
While police in Jupiter and Palm Beach


Gardens have not dealt with this sort of
crime before, it has happened in Riviera
Beach and Delray Beach, Detective Frank
said.
"Recently it's been north county (get-
ting hit with this type of crime)," he said.
Police are now asking for the public's
assistance with any information related
to the person caught on the video sur-
veillance tape.
Anyone with information is asked to
call Det. Frank at (561) 741-2419.

for a round-table discus-
sion and press conference
to discuss the funds that
may be available to the
the authorizing of the
funds for the school
district.
Chief Kelly and other
officials at the press
conference all agreed that
funding would provide
the district, in conjunc-
tion with local police and
task forces, with up-to-
date information on any
gang related activity in
the community.
The Youth Gang Vio-
lence Prevention Initia-
tive is being heralded as
the first of its kind and is
expected to bridge the
gap between schools and
law enforcement officers
through intelligence
sharing, gang violence
training, community
awareness and programs
for at-risk youth.
"The success here in
Palm Beach County could
mean success around the
country," said Rep.
Mahoney.
The sheriff's office
estimated that there are
7,000 gang members in
the county and gang
membership is on the

rise.
"Gang intelligence" will
improve communication
and help thwart off
violence in a number of
ways. One specifically is
through education.
"Knowledge is power,"
said Chief Kelly. "Intelli-
gence sharing, training
detectives, funding cops
grants and educated
students and parents will
go a long way."
Funding will go to the
introduction of an intelli-
gence system that would
provide seamless infor-
mation shared to and
from the Palm Beach
County Violent Crimes
Task Force, Palm Beach
County schools and
municipalities throughout
the county.
The system will use the
district's cable.television
station, Channel 10 out of
Boca Raton, and nearly 10
other substations to share
information that may be
surfacing inside the
school walls or on the city
streets in association with
gang activity.
"Federal, local and
school officials who learn
about a drive-by shooting
the night before, can
communicate.with one
another," said Mr. Prince.
"This allows us the time to
address the issue when
students are angry and
ready to engage."
News about gang
violence travels by word
of mouth around school
campuses, said Mr. Prince


"Knowledge is power. Intelligence sharing,
training detectives, funding cops grants and
educated students and parents will go a long
way.

Chief Jim Kelly
Palm Beach County School District police


and often school officials
and teachers are becom-
ing the front line of
defense.
"It seems to me what is
happening here is there is
more responsibility for
the school, said Rep.
Mahoney. "They are now
on the front lines, acting
like soldiers, in issues like
gang violence."
Rep.-Mahoney publicly
spoke out against the
President Bush's adminis-
tration for abandoning
funding for anti-gang
prevention programs. He
added that the amount of
money going toward the
Iraq war diminishes
money for programs in an
already fractured commu-
nity.
"When you don't keep
infrastructure up, it
creates problems," said
Rep. Mahoney. "A frac-
tured society and corrup-
tion of our youth must be
taken into consideration."
Rep. Mahoney and Mr.

"Young people are the
world's worst copycats,"
said Mr. Johnson. "The
inappropriate behavior
they see is copied."
The youth initiative will
focus on re-connecting
wayward kids into the
community through
counselor programs and
mentoring.
Training and mobilizing
more officers is also on
the agenda.
"We are all in this
together and this is a
partnership," said Mr.
Kelly. "People need to
know what's going on and
information empowers."
Gang violence is not
just a problem in Palm
Beach County, but is a
growing problem across
the country," said Rep.
Mahoney.
"There are added
challenges to our educa-
tors who face gang-
related issues and we
need to take a proactive
stance."
Officials in Palm Beach
County just recently
learned of the funding for
the Youth Gang Violence
Prevention Initiative and
the information is just
getting to local police
departments.
"The Palm Beach
Gardens Police Depart-
ment is aware of the
initiative and do not have
enough information to
comment on it," said
Ellen Lovejoy, public
information officer for
Palm Beach Gardens
Police Department.

Adding a waterfall or garden pond

may be easier than you think


If you ever thought of
putting in a garden
waterfall or pond, but
thought it was too compli-
cated or difficult, think
again.
SIf you go to almost any
garden center, they will
have an entire section
devoted to building a
garden pond. In years gone
by, building a garden pond
required pouring concrete
and using sealers, and the
cost was out of reach for
many people:
-Today, it's a totally
different story.
Flexible and solid liners
and forms are readily
available and all you need
to do is plan, dig and pop in
the mold. The ease in
installation has significant-
ly lowered the cost of
construction and has made
it easier than ever for the
average homeowner to do it
himself.
Garden ponds are added
to a landscape for many
different purposes.
Some people build one
for the sole purpose of
creating a fountain with
spraying or moving water.
Many people would like
to create both a decorative
pond and a place for live
fish.
What you plan to do with


your new fountain will have
a big impact on planning
its location.
For instance, if you want
to have a fishpond, you will
need to locate the pond
where it has some protec-
tion from the sun.
If your only purpose is to
create a fountain or water-
fall, the location in relation
to the sun will not be as
critical.
Also, if you plan on using
your pond to, stock fish, you
will need at least 10 inches
of depth or more. Having a
pond that is sufficient in
depth is extremely impor-
tant because a pond that is
too shallow will get exces-
sively warm for your fish,
especially during the
summer months.
Be sure to locate your
pond in an area where you
will be able to run power to
it. I would recommend
hiring a qualified electri-
cian for this task.
Once you have done the
planning and digging, you
can put all the parts
together..
Now the fun begins.
Bear in mind there is no
right or wrong way to
landscape a garden pond or
fountain.
You can start by placing
garden stones, crushed
stone, river rocks, or even


lava rock along the edge of
your pond to hide the liner.
Around the pond perime-
ter you can plant ground
covers, annuals, native
shrubs or grasses such as
Liriope.
You can also keep it
natural by planting native
Florida shrubs that are
common in your neighbor-
,hood.
.Even if you do not want
to use a conventional pond
liner, your imagination is
limitless. You can use an
old bathtub, an old
waterbed liner, large
galvanized washtubs or


even large sealed plant
containers.
In fact, if you would like
to share a unique idea with
other readers, you can e-
mail me at the address
below. I will share the ideas
in future articles.

vice president for research at
Florida Atlantic University, and
a member of the climate change
team.
"We have until very recently
not addressed the issue (of cli-
mate change). We are now play-
ing catch up," she said.
The team, which also
includes MichaelW. Sole, Secre-
tary of the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, as
chairman, government and
industry executives, members
of the environmental commu-
nity and college professors, has
not been given too much time
to do so.
They are expected to com-
plete Florida's Energy and Cli-
mate Change Action Plan in two
phases. The team will work on
incorporating strategies to
reduce greenhouse gas emis-
sions into legislation, as well as
creating policies for emission
reporting and how to measure
the reduction of emissions dur-
ing the first phase. They will also
propose new or different ways
to generate electricity before
the completion date for the first
phase, which is Nov. 1.
The second phase focuses on
dealing with the impact to soci-
ety and how to decrease the
impact's effects. The second


phase should be completed by
Oct. 1, 2008, as stated in the
press release from Gov. Crist's
office.
While some greenhouse gases
are emitted naturally, such as
when humans or animals
breathe or when plants die, the
bulk of the current climate
calamity has been created by
humans. When fossil fuels are
burned to make electricity, car-
bon dioxide is released, and as
garbage decomposes in land-
fills, methane is released,
according to www.world-
watch.org.
Gov. Crist's climate change
team met for the first time in
Tallahassee to discuss how to
reduce these emissions on Aug.
29.
"The most important thing
for us is that we spent time
going over market-based tools
to control pollutants," said Sen.
Atwater.
The tools include financial
incentives that would make
purchasing environmental-
friendly devices enticing to con-
sumers, he said.
' Ms. Coley and James Fenton,
a an aerospace engineering pro-
fessor and director of the Flori-
da Solar Energy Center at Uni-
versity of Central Florida in
Orlando, had some basic ideas
for how the emissions can be
reduced.
"In the short term, Floridians
can reduce emissions by using


more fuel-efficient vehicles, but
in the long term, we need a bet-
ter integrated transport sys-
tem," said Ms. Coley.
"We can also reduce house-
hold energy consumption,
thereby reducing power plant
emissions," she added.
The quickest and most cost-
effective solution to the
increase in CO2 is greater effi-
ciency, both in transportation
and the built environment, said
Mr. Fenton.
The team will research other
possibilities before the next
meeting on Sept. 18.
"We are going to have a more
in-depth conversation about
alternatives for generating elec-
tricity, such as wind, solar or
hydro-power at the next meet-
ing," said Sen. Atwater.
"We must reduce our depend-
ence on foreign oil! Florida is
committed to being a national
leader in the development of
alternative fuels and renewable
energy sources," he said.
Currently, 50 percent of the
emissions in Florida comes
from the electric utilities, he
added.
Forty-one percent of the
state's emissions come from
transportation, which will be
addressed at the team's meet-
ings in October, said Sen. Atwa-
ter.

Some parks are offering literacy

those for whom English is a second

"All the people that work at the
park love doing stuff for the kids
that is fun, but also educational,"
said Mr. Carton.
The park is one of 160 in Florida

Mr. Cate.
The staff at John D. MacArthur
Beach State Park is offering two lit-
eracy events this month. Mary Ann
Caruso, children services manager
at the North Palm Beach Public
Library, will read a book about
endangered sea turtles and play an
interactive game called 'Ocean Rid-
dles' with the children on Sept. 8
from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; said
Mr. Carton.
The park is also offering two ses-
sions of Reading with a Ranger on
Sept. 23. The first one is at 1:30 p.m.,
and the second begins at 3:30 p.m.
The park's volunteer coordinator,
Andrea Heaton, will read from
books, such as "Children of the
Earth ... Remember" by Schim
Schimmel and "The Great Kapok
Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain For-


est" by Lynne Cherry, said Mr. Car-
ton.
"She used to be a middle school
science teacher, so she is good with
children and will get them to inter-
act," he said.
The program is geared towards
pre-k through fourth-grade stu-
dents, said Mr. Carton.
The park's staff is hoping to
receive several donations of new or
gently used books, and have already
made some donations themselves.
"We want to have the children
who attend the programs'be able to
pick books out to take home," said
Mr. Carton.
The park's admission fee of $4 per
carload will be waived for people
who donate books.
Visitors to any state park can get
in free all month long if they bring
their library card, a library book
that they have checked out or
donate a new or gently used book
that is family-appropriate, said Mr.
Cate.
Books donated at the parks will
be distributed to underprivileged
children, he said.
Although it is the first time
MacArhur is offering these kinds of
programs, Mr. Carton would like to
see if the park could coordinate lit-
eracy events on a regular.basis.
"We would like to host an event
on International Literacy Day again
Next year, but we would also like to
team up with the North Palm Beach
Library since we're always looking
for things for the kids to do," said
Mr. Carton.

Fine Arts Festival


Get a Taste of A

in Palm Bea(


ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival, like, every year, is scheduled for President's Day
weekend in February, but the public will have two opportunities to enjoy some
of the festival's flavor this fall at two separate events in Palm Beach Gardens. To
whet your palette for ArtiGras, the 2nd annual Art in the Gardens will be held
at a brand new location at Midtown on PGA Boulevard on Saturday, October
20 and Sunday, October 21. On Friday, November 2, ArtiGras will present its
third annual Red, White and Zin, a gourmet wine and food tasting.
Presented by Midtown, Art in the Gardens is free and will feature more than 75
fine regional artists who will display and sell their work from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
on, October 20 and 21. Located on PGA Boulevard just west of Military Trail,
Midtown is an exciting concept in real estate development integrating 97,000
square feet of retail, restaurant and office space with 225 luxury condominiums,
a 500-seat cultural center and a 300-seat banquet hall. Main Street's chic
boutiques and gourmet restaurants, including an elegant steakhouse, fine
American Cuisine and Mexican cantina, are set amidst a lavishly-landscaped
plaza and an inviting pedestrian streetscape where shoppers can relax by a
tranquil fountain or enjoy a fun evening "on the town".
All of the artists in this show will be juried locally and are hand picked
exclusively from Florida. This show gives local residents the opportunity to meet
some of the creative talent in their own backyard and offers a preview for the
2008 ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival. Premium parking is available on site and
complimentary shuttle service is available from off site lots. Follow the signs or
call (561) 691-8507 for more information.

Kravis ticket sale day


BY DANIEL SHUBE
Entertainment writer
WEST PALM BEACH -The
Raymond E Kravis Center for the
Performing Arts will hold its Public
Ticket Sale Day for all 2007-2008
season Kravis-initiated presenta-
tions beginning at 9 a.m. Sept. 15 in
the Center's Marshall E. Rinker Sr.
Playhouse, 701 Okeechobee Blvd.,
West Palm Beach.
Public Ticket Sale Day has become
a fun local tradition. Patrons of the
arts enjoy refreshments, giveaways,
special promotions and entertain-
ment while they select seats for the
season's shows.
"In recent years, less people have
attended this event," said Kravis
publicist Brian Bixler. "Many ticket
purchasers now prefer buying from
the Internet or by telephone some
do all three!" he said.
Entering its 16th year, the Kravis
Center will present its most diverse
entertainment offering ever.
A few highlights include comedian
Martin Short (March 18) and
country singer Clint Black (Oct. 17)
and singers Michael McDonald
(Nov. 24) and k.d. lang (March 1).
"Our mission is to serve the
community and offer something for
everyone," said Mr. Bixler. "A recent
marketing study indicated that the
No. 1 thing that people want to see
are Broadway shows, followed by
comedians," he said. As a result, The
Kravis Center will offer plenty of,
both.
Mr. Bixler indicated that while the
community supports returning acts,
the level of excitement is greater for
performers appearing for the First
time at the Kra\is Center.
First-timers this season will
include Queen Latifah, star of such
films as Hairspray and Chicago (Nov.
7), R&B singer Anita Baker (Dec. 13),
opera star Dame Kiri Te Kanawa
(Jan. 30) and finalists from NBC's hit
reality series Last Comic Standing


Saturday


Photos courtesy of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
Queen Latifah, star of such films as 'Hairspray' and 'Chicago,' will perform
Nov. 7, while comedian Martin Short will perform March 18.


(Dec. 14).
In addition to Broadway and
comedy, with the rise in popularity
of dance on television, Mr. Bixler
expects several dance programs,
including Ballet Folklorico de
Mexico (Nov. 10), Joffrey Ballet (Jan.
16), Martha Graham Dance Compa-
ny (Feb. 10) and Simply Ballroom
(April 1) to be big hits this season.
The Kravis Center has not forgot-
ten the younger patrons. Sesame .
Street Live "Elmo Makes Music" will
be opening the season (Sept. 20-23).
Those tickets are on sale already.
Kravis Center members have the
privilege of ordering tickets in
advance of the Public Ticket Sale
Day. The Center offers priority
seating to donors according to their
level of giving and by the date orders
are received within each donor level.
Memberships begin at $75.


While there are benefits to
membership, said Mr. Bixler, there
will be plenty of excellent seats
available for all shows on Public
Ticket Sale Day.
The season schedule is extensive.
The shows listed above are just a
small sampling of what will go on
sale Sept. 15.
To see the full schedule or to
purchase tickets, visit
www.kravis.org. Season brochures
will be available in the Rinker
Playhouse lobby during public ticket
sale day.
Call (561) 833-6300for informa-
tion or to purchase tickets. For
information about becoming a
member call (561) 651-4320.
The Kravis Center for the Perform-
ingArts is located at 701 Okeechobee
Blvd. in West Palm Beach.

Peruvian rainforest offers wonders


Lve led a dozen trips to
Peru, and soon I'lllead
y 13th.
I've seen Machu Picchu,
Lima, Cusco, the SacredValley,
LakeTiticaca, Nazca and the
Amazon River many times. Yet
I dreamt of a place I kept
missing, Puerto Maldonado,
Peru's gateway to the rainfor-
est. That is until 2005, when
my dream came true.
With my group headed
home, I boarded a plane from
Cusco to Puerto Maldonado
by myself. It was a short,
scenic flight over the Andes,
into the gentle Madre de Dios
and Tambopapta river valleys.
Here the rivers snake through
the lush rainforest of the
Amazon basin, as far as the
eye can see.
Cusco's cool temperatures
hadn't prepared me for the
heat and humidity of the
rainforest, though. Peeling off
layers upon arrival, I was met

by the ReservaAmazonica
Lodge bus and driven through
town to the river. There I
boarded a long, thatched boat
and settled in for a 45-minute
ride downstream.
The river was wide, beauti-
ful and mesmerizing. I knew I
was going to be happy here.


Once we arrived at the lodge, I
knew I was going to be even
happier.
It was gorgeous, in an eco-
friendly sort of way. Lunch was
waiting in the stunning dining
room with rough-hewn tables
and chairs, all arranged
around a huge, floor to ceiling
tree trunk. Sunlight streamed
in from all directions, lighting
up Peruvian tapestries and
creating a magical air. Lunch
was delicious and afterward I
headed to my cabana for a
rest. Complete with porch,
hammocks, comfy beds,
mosquito netting, bathroom
and shower, it was simple, but
channing.
Later, I met my personal
guide, Eric. We started out by
exploring the flora and fauna
nearby. After an hour, we
found ourselves at the lodge's
canopy walk Climbing up-the
observation tower, I was soon
high above the trees. When I


Calendar
From page B2


stepped onto the canopy walk,
bouncing with each step I
took, I saw the rainforest
below as few get to see it.
And to think, we could lose
all this.
At dusk we returned to the
lodge, which was now lit with
hundreds of glowing kerosene
lamps. After cleaning up, I
headed to the dining room,
made even more magical by
music and candlelight. Dinner
was superb, with fine wines,
interesting local dishes and
good conversation.

Lessons from the


not-so-distant past


Most of the
history lessons
we get in school
are of the political or
military variety. We learn
about Napoleon and
Alexander the Great,
their conquests, their
downfalls, maybe even
the intrigues that sur-
round them. We might
study the progress of
technology and know
that Madame Curie was
the first famous woman.
scientist. Perhaps we
study philosophy and
know what Socrates and
Plato thought. The
history of the world is
interesting and revealing
but most of what we
study is public informa-
tion having to do with
the great individuals,
institutions, evolutions
and revolutions of
humanity's past.
While it maybe impor-
tant to know the facts
about our country's and
humanity's great struggles,
it's at least equally valu-
able to understand our
social history, the ways in
which our mores, cus-
toms, personal standards
and expectations have
evolved. This week I'd like
to briefly summarize
progress we've made on
two social fronts, the
status of women and the
issue of self-esteem.
Understand please, I make
no attempt here to be
comprehensive, only
provocative.

Woman,
the inferior superior

Looking back 150
years, we see the role of
women in Western society
very different from
today's. Her sphere of
operation was entirely
domestic, contained
within the privacy of the
home. She was not invited
to be a presence in the
public world except on
social occasions and, even
then, she was expected
(and carefully trained) to
be pleasant, entertaining
and ornamental. Whatever
education she received
was for the purpose of
making her a better
companion for men and a
more efficient household
manager (or worker.)
The public rationale
used to justify this gender
specification was women's
supposed moral superiori-
ty over men. To protect
their moral integrity, so
important to wife-and
motherhood, women were
excluded from the public
arena of economic and
political business with all
the ruthless nastiness and
moral compromises that
entailed. Her role was to

HUGH LEAVELL
One Minute Therapist


preside over that "haven in
a heartless world" that was
the home. And, further,
she was given the task of
preserving the family's
spiritual salvation through
her attention to their
moral and religious
training (even if she was
not allowed to preside
over ritual observances.)
One early and influen-
tial feminist writing to
promote women's political
suffrage was a man, a well-
known public philosopher
named John Stuart Mill.
Mill attacked the "woman
worshippers" who wanted
to keep women on their
moral pedestal and out of
the public forum. While
there had been a time, he
allowed, when women
exercised a favorable
moral influence by stimu-
lating chivalric sentiments
in an era dominated by the
morality of martial
prowess, those days were
long gone. The source of
morality no longer was
chivalry, but justice.
Mill saw women as
having a deleterious effect
on men because, in the
conflict between private
concerns and public
justice, women would be
inclined to favor the
former. They would, due
to their domestic orienta-
tion, inadequate educa-
tion and sentimental
nature, make decisions
upon personal/family
advantage and reactive
compassion without
regard for the good of
society as a whole.
And it was because of
this negative influence
over men that women
should be allowed all
rights and privileges
accorded male citizens,
including equal educa-
tion. Only by making
women equals in every
way could their intellectu-
al defects be corrected and
their "negative" moral
influence (i.e. their
.exclusive concern with the
private world of the
family) be eliminated.
Women have come a long
way in the past 100 years.
And because of the
changes in women's roles,
men now have opportuni-
ties (and expectations) for
intimacy with women that
barely existed a century
ago. Now, if we could only
figure out what to do with
that opportunity.

What self-esteem
used to mean

The concepts of self,
self-interest and self-
respect have changed
radically in the past 50
years or so. It used to be
there was a powerful
social ethic that kept
individualism in check. A
person's self-interest was
seen as integral to the
general public interest.
Self-discipline and self-
control were the sources
of self-respect.
Today, self-esteem does
not depend upon one's
actions and behaviors. We
are supposed to have self-
esteem just because we
exist and not because we
behave in any way that is
useful to others, good or
right in any sense, or have
accomplished anything
worthwhile. We give our
kids trophies just for
showing up, leading them
to assume that life doesn't
require much more of
them than that. Whereas

A fat by any name is still a fat, so


lighten up your macaroni and cheese


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you had
a good week.
People, I think we have a
problem! Wasn't it great
when, as of Jan. 1, 2006, the
FDA announced that all
foods must tell you if a
product contains trans-fats.
Do you actually know what
trans-fats are?
When an oil is turned into
a solid, it is done so by
adding hydrogen. This
creates trans-fats, a proven
carcinogen. Margarine is an
example of a hydrogenated
fat.
One problem is that if a
product has only a half
gram of trans-fat, it doesn't
have to be listed on the
label. Most packaged
products have more than
one serving, so by eating it
all you're getting more than
the safe amount.
Here's the biggest prob-
lem. For some people,
removing trans-fats means
there are no fats left in the
product. Trans-fats are bad,
but other fats are still fats
and contain more than 100
calories per tablespoon.
More than 65 percent of
Americans are.obese. Could
this be a contributing
factor?
Please read the labels on
all products you buy and
pay attention to the calories
as well as the fats.

column the recipe for
Mystery Squash soup had

BAKED MACARONI
AND CHEESE
Serves 3 to 4
Regular and low-fat

A national favorite,
macaroni and cheese is
truly the bad guy when it
comes to high-fat, high-
cholesterol food.
Substitute Kraft grated,
fat-free cheddar cheese and
low-fat grated mild cheddar
cheese to equal 2 cups.
Break up the Swiss, use
skim milk or evaporated
skim milk for the milk or
plain soy milk and a healthy
butter substitute such as
Smart Balance and you have
a delicious low-fat macaroni
and cheese.

8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 cups grated American
cheese or mild cheddar
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

to drained macaroni and
mix. Add milk; do not stir.
Dot with butter and
sprinkle with paprika.
Bake in a 350-degree oven

When trying to come up
with a new, healthier take

lengths and grate. It will be
done in a flash.)

THROUGH THICK
AND THIN
If women were to take their cues
about hair c(:ooririq i iiirely ii, in what
they see among celebrities in fashion
magazines, they might mistakenly
think that it's okay to change their
hair color every other week. Women
should bear in mind, however, that
over-processed hair is stressed hair.
One alarming symptom of too much
coloring, bleaching, and heat
processing is thinning hair. What
concerns many hair stylists even
more is the increasing numbers of
very young women who are losing
their hair due to overiprocessing. To
make matters worse, these same
women may be on restrictive diets
that limit the amount of nutrients that
their bodies are taking in. If any of
this sounds.familiar to you, ask about
hair revitalization.
Your hair, like the rest of your body,
needs certain nutrients and care.
Please call JONATHAN T' SALON at
(561) 626-1829 to schedule an
appointment. Our color specialists
understand the delicacy and impact
of hair color and can create an
individualized hair color. We keep a
complete history of each session and
recommend a color schedule that
helps you enjoy healthy, beautiful
hair. While your here, pickup an
1-bella hydrating conditioner or
intensive nourishing treatment. We

women in the United States suffer
from hair loss.


Open letter to car manufacturers:


Customer satisfaction trumps sales volume


Dear car manufac-
turer:


Today, the car manufac-
turers can't stop talking
about customer satisfac-
tion, especially when it
comes to satisfying the car
buyer. They are aware, as
everyone is, that customers
visiting car dealerships
rank their treatment worse
than just about any other
retailer. The manufacturers
have been aware of this
problem for about 30 years.
As a Pontiac dealer, I can
still remember the first
"customer service invento-
ry" surveys that were sent
out. The surveys and the
methodology has changed
quite a bit, but essentially
it's the same.
When somebody buys a
car from a dealer, he/she is
mailed a questionnaire;
sometimes e-mailed or by
phone. The same system is
used for service customers.
These surveys are scored
for customer satisfaction
and the dealerships are
measured against each
other. Typically a dealer-
ship is ranked numerically
within his local market
(about a 100-mile radius)
region (geographic section
of the U.S. e.g., the South-
east) and the entire coun-
try.
The problem has-been
that these surveys haven't
worked very well. Realizing
this, the manufacturers,
have steadily increased the
penalties to dealers with
bad scores and rewards to
dealers with good scores.
The penalties can be
quite severe, including a
dealer's franchise being
terminated, putting him
out of business. The
rewards sometimes include
cash, vacations trips,
prestigious honor clubs
and societies and even
priority consideration for
another dealership loca-
tion. Guess what? It's still
not working. The scores are
getting higher and higher,


EARL STEWART
On Cars

but the customers are not
getting happier and
happier. "How can that be?"
you say.
The dealers are finding
ways to manipulate the
survey scores to their
advantage. The stakes are
so high for a good customer
satisfaction score that
"fixing the game" has
become pretty much
"standard operating
procedure" with many car
dealerships.
This is especially egre-
gious because the honest
dealers, who go about
improving their scores "the
old fashioned way"-
treating.the customer
better are made to look
bad relative to those who
are cheating on their
scores. In fact, sometimes
dealers who don't treat
customers very nicely
getting higher scores than
those who do. As if this
weren't bad enough,
manufacturers sometimes
"look the other way" when
a large volume dealer has a
"CSI problem." In awards,
contests, and honorary
societies, the manufactur-
ers sometimes award
"discretionary" points to
bring a large volume
dealer's percentage score
up to an acceptable level. I
don't have to tell you how
demoralizing this is to
those honest dealers who
earn their points fairly. This
sends a dangerous message
to all dealers when they see


sales volume trumping
customer satisfaction in
manufacturers' priorities.
The fact is that the
manufacturers' focus on
customer satisfaction
surveys has intensified to
the point where most
manufacturers' executives
care more about the
numbers than the cus-
tomers. They tell the
dealers to "get those
numbers up," which
doesn't necessarily corre-
late with "treat your
customers better."
In a recent Automotive
News article, an independ-
ent survey company found
that 36 percent of car
buyers said the salesperson
asked for a perfect score
and they were asked to
allow the dealership to
address problems and
complaints internally,.
rather than to report them
to the automaker. There are
instances of offering a free
tank of gas or other perk for
a good survey or bringing
the blank survey into the
dealership for the salesman
to fill out.
One manufacturer
recently caught a lot of
dealers who had furnished
phony e-mail addresses for
their customers so that the
customer satisfaction
survey would come to the
dealership instead of
customers' homes.

Recommendations to
car manufacturers

Keep the surveys, but let
them be used as an infor-
mation tool for improving
the way the dealers treat

New 'state of the art'


system helps doctors


detect breast cancer


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

PALM BEACH COUNTY
- JFK Medical Center in
Atlantis has acquired a
new digital mammogra-
phy system that enables
its physicians to detect
and diagnose breast can-
cer in patients with confi-
dence.
The innovative digital
system provides out-
standing image quality
and clear, highly detailed
images of the breast. The
center's new Senographe
DS full-field digital mam-
mography system
acquired from GE Health-
care is the most modern


mammography equip-
ment available to patients
today, a press release
said.
"Now JFK Medical Cen-
ter's physicians and the
patients of Palm Beach
County have a new and
powerful tool in the
detection and fight
against breast cancer,"
said Gina Melby, medical
center CEO. "This new,
all-digital system is revo-
lutionizing breast care by
providing our patients
with state-of-the-art
mammograms that are
faster and easier, while
providing our physicians
with highly detailed


images to use in the diag-
nosis. Plus, the system
has a patient-centric
design and intuitive con-
trols that allow the tech-
nologists who perform
the exams to focus on the
patients, making the
mammography exam an
easier experience. For the
physician, it provides
greater flexibility in view-
ing the exam and per-
forming biopsies."
According to the Ameri-
can Cancer Society about
178,480 women will get
invasive breast cancer in
2007. About 40,460 will
die this year from the dis-
ease.


Reading challenge rewards


children with library cards


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

JUPITER -Reading is
its own reward, but
during National Library
Card Sign-Up Month in
September there's an
extra incentive for young
readers: the 15th annual
McDonald's Reading
Challenge.
With support from
Palm Beach County and
Treasure Coast libraries,
the Reading Challenge
encourages children in
grades kindergarten
through five to visit their
libraries, obtain a library
card and receive a
Reading Challenge card.
Completed Reading
Challenge cards qualify


children for a prize
drawing, including a gift
certificate to WalMart
stores, among other
prizes.
More than 10,000
children throughout
Palm Beach County and
the Treasure Coast
participated in the
McDonald's Reading
Challenge program last
year.
In Palm Beach County,
the program also pro-
motes the "PowerCard," a
free library card usable at
any of 22 Palm Beach
County Libraries. The
"PowerCard" concept
originated from collabo-
ration of the School
District of Palm Beach


County and the Library
Cooperative of the Palm
Beaches and provides
access to combined
library collections.
McDonald's launched
the program as a way to
encourage children to
discover all their libraries
have to offer. It's sup-
ported in the Palm Beach
County by McDonald's
owner/operators Jim
Booth, Steve Nisbet, Paul
Raffa, Ricky Wade and
Mark Watson of Melton
Management.

thinkers don't use the
conscious mind or ego
very much.
They try to keep it relaxed
and open to allow positive
ideas and "aha's" to pop into
it that come up from the heart
and soul. It can be likened to
what happens when the Lotto
numbers pop up in the daily
or weekly drawings.
An old, old saying goes,
"Without a vision the people
perish."
In ancient times, the
leaders of the tribes would
not move the people until
they had a sign that the time
was right for change. It is still
the same today. The recent
interest in the book, "The
Secret," has brought this
wisdom yet again into public
view.
Everyone at birth has a
genius living inside the soul,
yearning to be set free. The
process of finding our true
purpose and destiny should
be the No. 1 priority in life.
Our health, wealth and
happiness depend on it.
We get so caught up in the
outer world, trying to earn a
living and get ahead that we
seldom surrender our lower
nature and its hunger, fear
and sadness and begin to find
our higher calling and
freedom. Money, education,
experience, power, prestige or
privilege have little to do with
finding our true destiny. It has
everything to do with staying
open to change and letting
the universe flow through us
and work for us. By bringing

Leavell
From page B4
the interdependence of
people in society was once
a given, and proper
behavior was the only
thing that entitled one to
self-esteem, now we
glorify the self as an entity
whose worth is not to be
judged until we walk a
mile in his shoes.
This sort of moral
relativism leaves our
young without visible,
relevant goals. We aren't
clear with them what it
takes to be truly successful
in this world, how much
sacrifice is expected of
them down the road and
what it is that makes a
person truly valuable to
himself or to those around


him.
Confusion, depression
and the elevation to iconic
status in the media of
anyone with a point of
view (without reference to
validity or utility or even
aesthetics) is the result of
this cultural disorienta-
tion.
Depression, no matter
what its source, is to be
medicated. We don't know
why we feel bad. We have
everything. We should be
happy but instead we're
either anxious or numb.
Our moral relativism has
resulted in a narcissistic
culture whose compass
has been severely rattled
and is wavering still.

Palm Beach Community College


enrollment climbs as budget cuts loom


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


PALM BEACH COUNTY Palm
Beach Community College enroll-
ment is up 5.3 percent this term and
college officials are calling the hike
a mixture of good news and bad
news.
The enrollment jump comes as
PBCC braces for state budget cuts
ranging from 4 percent to 10 per-
cent. The cuts are the result of an
anticipated shortfall in the state's
budget because of lower than
expected tax revenues.
PBCC officials do not yet know the
extent of its cuts, but they say a 4
percent cut would equal a $2.1
million reduction in its $52.8.
million recurring state allocation. A
10 percent cut would mean a more
than $5 million decrease.
g "The enrollment increase sug-
gests that the college is responding
to the education and training needs
in our community, but I am con-
cerned about what these potential
budget cuts will mean for our
institution," said Dennis P. Gallon,
PBCC president. "I'm not certain
that we can continue to maintain an
open-door policy and provide a
quality education for our students
without significantly impacting
some aspects of college operations.
Our first priority, however, will be to
ensure that these looming budget


"I'm not certain that we can continue to maintain an open-
door policy and provide a quality education for our students
without significantly impacting some aspects of college oper-
ations['

Dennis P. Gallon
SPBCC president


cuts do not impact services and
instruction to our students."
PBCC's four-campus credit and
prep head count is up 3.3 percent or
671 students as of Aug. 27, the third
day of class. The number of credit
hours students are taking is up 5.3
percent. While the enrollment
increase will generate additional
revenue, those funds will not cover
the entire cost of serving the
additional students because tuition,
particularly, in-state tuition, does
not cover the full cost ofinstruction.
PBCC had already sliced $1.25
million from its proposed 2007-08
fiscal year budget earlier this year
because of the governor's veto of a 5
percent tuition increase for the
state's community colleges and
universities.
As cost-saving measures, PBCC
has:
*Suspended the development and
implementation of new associate in
science degree programs in physical


therapy assisting, mortuary science,
power generation and health
information management
*Restricted employee travel,.
particularly out-of-state travel
*Frozen eight new non-instruc-
tional positions
*Put a freeze on major equipment
purchases
PBCC also has established a
committee of employees and
students to identify other possible
ways to cut the budget.
Serving more than 45,000 stu-
dents annually, Palm Beach Com-
munity College is the largest institu-
tion of higher education in Palm
Beach County, providing associate
degrees, professional certificates,
career and customized training and
lifelong learning.
Florida's first public community
college, PBCC offers more than 100
programs of study at locations in
Lake Worth, Boca Raton, Palm
Beach Gardens and Belle Glade.

Grab your pencils
and mark the date
of Sept. 17.
That's when you will
have a chance to rub
elbows with golf's best and
enjoy a preview of the
fantastic Tesoro Club,
home to the 2007 Ginn sur
Mer Classic at Tesoro.
The newest event on the
2007 PGA Tour schedule, is
hosting a free community
day featuring four Ginn
Resorts-sponsored PGA
Tour stars, two-time U.S.
Open winner Lee Janzen,
area resident and tour
rookie Ken Duke, and
President's Cup teammates
Brian Gay and Lucas
Glover..
A free clinic beginning at
9:45 a.m. will be followed
by a five-hole charity skins
match at 10:30 a.m.
Upon completion of the
skins game, the golfers will
sign autographs and hand
out free tickets to the Oct.
22-28 Ginn sur Mer Classic
at the Arnold Palmer
Course at The Tesoro Club.
The $4.5 million, PGA
Tour event will be televised
all four days on the Golf
Channel.
Four local charities will
be the big winners during
the community day, each
having a shot at a piece of
a $20,000 purse put up by
Bobby Ginn, chairman and
chief executive officer of
Ginn Resorts.
The golfers will be in two
teams. The team with the
most skins will split
$12,000 for their two
charities and the runners-
up will split $8,000 for
their two charities.
"This community event
is a great start to a busy
month at Tesoro in getting
ready for our tournament,"
said tournament director
John Subers.\"This is a
fantastic opportunity for
the area, a free clinic and
charity event. It's a fantas-
tic and enjoyable first half
of the day for everyone."
Janzen, Duke, Gay and
Glover will be joined by a
host of PGA Tour stars
when they return next
month. Those on the early
commitment list include
13-time PGA Tour and
British Open winner Mark
Calcavecchia; Justin
Leonard, who's won 10
times on the tour, includ-
ing the British Open and
Players Championship;
PGA Champion Shaun
Micheel; U.S. Open
champion Steve Jones;
Steve Flesch, winner at the
2007 Reno-Tahoe Open;
fan-favorite Boo Weekley,
who won earlier this
season; along with many
other up-and-coming PGA
Tour players.
This is only the early
commitment list, as the
field will not be finalized
until the Friday before
tournament week.
"Players such as Cal-
cavecchia, Micheel and
Leonard have stared down
the likes of Tiger, Phil and
Vijay and won," said Ginn.
"With talent and names
like this, the inaugural
Ginn sur Mer Classic at
Tesoro will showcase a
field and quality of play
that will surely send 2007
out with a bang."
Tickets for the PGA Tour
event are on sale now and
there are several ticket
options.

same dealer? Also, what
percentage of the cus-
tomers return to that dealer
for service after they buy
their car? What more do
you need to know?
Customer loyalty is the
bottom line, plain and
simple. If you must use a
survey, use an independent
company that surveys
customers so that dealers
don't know who is surveyed
or when it's done.
The hardest thing for a
manufacturer to do is to
make customer satisfaction
trump sales volume, not


the other way around. The
manufacturers will find, if
they have the courage to do
it, that they will "have their
cake and eat it too."

my cabana, read a bit in the
hammock and fell asleep
surrounded by the sweet
sounds of the rainforest.
The birds woke me at dawn,
so I grabbed my camera and
took photos of the sun rising
over the river.
Then itwas time for
breakfast, followed by a boat
ride to Tambopata National
Reserve. Once there, Eric and I
walked through the rainforest,
now brimming with butter-
flies, to Lake Sandoval. Here
we took a canoe ride around
the lake, checking out the bird
and plant life along the shore.
It was a treat to just sit and
take photos, while Eric did all
the paddling. Eventually, it
was time to head back-
another magical moment in
the rainforest.
After lunch, we sailed to
Monkey Island. Walking to the
dock, we passed a row of ugly,
rubber boots. I remember
thinking how glad I was we
didn't have to wear them,
since we'd had no rain. In
retrospect, I should have
picked up a paint.
As our boat approached the
island, there was too much
mud to dock in the usual
place. The problem was we
had to walk over the same
muddy area instead. In no
time, Iwas slipping and sliding
until I finally fell. I was
completely covered in mud
and my camera was, too. My
filthy clothes went right in the
garbage, but at least my


camera survived.
Regardless, itwas quite an
experience and worth seeing
all the monkeys.
Next, we visited a farmer to
learn about his life along the
river. If I'd had more time, I
would have enjoyed visiting a
local village, too.
Once backin our boat, Eric
thought I'd like seeing all the
cayman (an alligator-like
reptile) along the riverbanks.
At dusk, he easily spotted
them by their glowing eyes
and hoisted them onboard.
After hearing my shrieks, he
knew he was wrong. No
cayman, alligators or croco-
diles for me, thanks.
As we approached the
lodge, I realized I had only one
more evening in paradise. I
was definitely leaving far too
soon. I'd just gotten into the
rhythm of the rainforest and,
unfortunately, it was time to
leave. My wish was for more
time.
As I prepare to return to
Peru this fall and the rainforest
once again, mywish will be
granted.
