New restrictions on vehicles passed

But one resident plans to fight the amended ordinance


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH -
Changes tol a village ordi-
nance made at least one res-
ident fighting mad.
North Palm Beach resi-
dent Donna Kramer plans to
appeal the amendments
made by a unanimous vote
of the Village Council on
Dec. 13 to a commercial
vehicle ordinance. Although
the changes will not take
effect until June 16, it was the
second reading, which
means the ordinance has


been changed.
Councilman T.R. Hernacki
discussed the issue at a
council meeting this sum-
mer when he talked with
residents who were cited for
bringing their work vehicles
home, but the issue had
been going on longer than
that.
"We have been wrestling
with this for a considerable
amount of time," said Mayor
Ed Eissey.
However, it was not until
Ms. Kramer was given a
notice for her vehicle that
the staff and council made
changes to the code.


The previous code prohib-
ited trucks in excess of three-
fourths of a ton from parking
on public streets or high-
ways, unless they are com-
mercial vehicles.used to pro-
vide services or make
deliveries. Trucks over the
above-mentioned weight
cannot be parked on private
property, unless they are
used as part of an existing
business on the private
property.
Residents told Mr. Her-
nacki they felt the code was
being misapplied, but
nobody was cited, said vil-
lage planner Jodi Nentwick.


They were given friendly
reminders according to the
code compliance division,
she said.
The notices (like the one
given to Ms. Kramer) were
issued in error and that's
what brought us here, said
village manager Jimmy
Knight at the meeting.
The ordinance needed to
be clearer for residents to
understand, he said.
The changes to the code
include restrictions on sig-
nage and clarifying the
weight of commercial vehi-

Year in review: North Palm Beach


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH
- It was a year of change
for the Village of North
Palm Beach. The village
got a new manager and a
new police chief in 2007.
North Palm Beach is also
home to one of the legis-
lators who worked to get
insurance rates and prop-
erty 'taxes lowered for
Floridians.
Here is a look back at
some of the events that
made 2007 memorable.

Ask and thou
shall receive
Sen. Jeff Atwater, R-
North Palm Beach, asked
the board of governors of
Citizens Property Insur-
ance of Tallahassee to
wait before they made a
decision about another
rate increase for policy-
holders, and they did.
Sen. Atwater sent the
board a letter on Dec. 5
and on Dec. 7, it voted
unanimously to table the
agenda item until insur-
ance issues were dis-
cussed at a special legisla-
tive session on Jan. 16.
Citizens has more than
112,000 policyholders in
Palm Beach County, who
are covered under three
separate policies depend-


ing on where they live.
But a proposed rate
increase of 55 percent
would have affected all
Citizens' policyholders.
During the 2006 legisla-
tive session, Senate Bill
1980 passed, which
required Citizens to
change its rates so the
company could obtain
reinsurance to cover
claims in the event of a
massive natural disaster.
Citizens had to estimate
the cost of reinsurance to
the tune of $975 billion. A
move by Sen. Atwater and
other legislators to repeal
certain sections of the bill
- including a mandate
driving the 55 percent
increase was success-
ful.
SGov. Charlie Crist visit-
ed the home of Charlie
and Becky Isiminger at
717 Kittyhawk Way in
North Palm Beach to sign
the new insurance bills on
Jan. 25.

Municipalities
prepare for effects
of tax cuts
On June 14, the Florida
Legislature passed a bill
to decrease residents'
property taxes.
However, the impact
may not quite be what
residents had in mind.
"It doesn't sound like it's


going to have that much
of an impact," said David
Norris, president pro tem
for the North Palm Beach
Village Council. "The
number that's being
thrown around as the
decrease everyone will
see is about $200. To me
(as a homeowner) that's
not significant."
The bill required cities,
counties and special dis-
tricts to cap future prop-
erty tax revenue at 2006-
07 levels and required a
percentage rollback rang-
ing from zero to 9 percent
on top of the revenue cap.
In addition to the rev-
enue cap, the Village of
North Palm Beach was
required to reduce their
property tax revenues by 9
percent. With the manda-
tory tax revenue cap and
the rollback, that essen-
tially equated to some-
where around a 14 per-
cent or $1.6 million
reduction in revenue, said
village manager Jimmy
Knight.
The village reduced its
tax rate from 6.3 mils,
which meant residents
pay $6.30 on every $1,000
of their assessed property
value, to 6.1 mils. One
position was eliminated
from the Public Safety
Department.

All about the mall

Ocean Mall development, or lack
of it, colors issues on Singer Island


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
SINGER ISLAND As
2008 draws closer, here's a
brief overview of signifi-
cant events on Singer
Island that shaped 2007.

Murderer dies
before completing
his sentence term
Michael Koblan died in
January from a heart
attack at a medical facili-
ty for federal prisoners in
Springfield, Mo., said
Koblan family attorney
Richard Galler of Hacken-
sack, N.J.
Mr. Koblan was sen-
tenced in 2005 for killing
his sister-in-law, Janette
Piro and her husband,
Chris Benedetto, who
were Singer Island resi-
dents, in 1998. Mr.
Koblan was arrested for
the murders in New Jer-
sey in 2003. He was found
guilty on charges of
killing Mr. Benedetto and
dumping his body into
the Atlantic Ocean and
killing Ms. Piro and put-
ting her body into a freez-
er at the couple's home.
Mr. Koblan was con-
victed in 2005 and only
served a year and a half of


his two consecutive life
sentences before his
death.

Incumbents lose
to three.
newcomers
Incumbent Riviera
Beach Councilwomen
Ann Iles, Vanessa Lee and
Liz Wade lost their seats
to three new candidates,
Cedrick Thomas, Shelby
Lowe and Lynne Hubbard
in a runoff election on
March 27.
"The election demon-
strated that people on
both sides (of Riviera
Beach) were tired of the
negative rhetoric and the
inability to move the city
forward," said Anthony
Gigliotti, chairman of the
Singer Island Civic Asso-
ciation.
The newly-elected offi-
cials live on the main-
land, but won support
from Singer Island resi-
dents because they
shared their views on the
redevelopment of the
Ocean Mall property,
among other issues.
"Our hope is that (the
new council members)
will work on uniting, and

Early storm causes
erosion emergency
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
declared a shoreline emer-
gency on May 14 for specific
sections of the Atlantic
Coast that suffered erosion
damage from subtropical
storm Andrea. One of the
areas included was Singer
Island.
An emergency declaration
speeds up the permitting
process, so municipalities
and property owners can act
to prevent further damage.
On May 15, the group
working to restore the shore-
line learned that the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency had agreed to help.
FEMAs support was need-
ed because the Army Corps
of Engineers does not have
jurisdiction on projects
landward of the mean high
water line, said Sarah
Williams, a spokeswoman
for the DEP
Before the dunes could be
restored, turtle nests had to
be relocated, since sea turtle
nesting season starts March
1.
The beach along Singer
Island received 72,000 tons
of sand total from a sand
mine in Port St. Lucie to pre-
vent further erosion damage
during the hurricane season,
said Mike Stahl, an environ-
mental analyst for Palm
Beach County's .Environ-
mental Resources Manage-
ment Department.

council for 18 years, and,
since 1995, he's been mayor
for every year except 2004-
05.
According to statistics pre-
sented at his State of the City
address in May, crime rates
have gone down by 41 per-
cent during his tenure, while
the population has
increased by almost 16,000.
Mayor Russo has partici-
pated in the transformation
of the PGA corridor, from a
relatively quiet divided
highway into a retail mecca.
In recent years, he's over-
seen the Downtown at the
Gardens and Legacy Place
projects from the ground
up. His votes on the council
have helped mold the com-
mercial evolution of the city,
and, after 20 years of reading
ordinances and reciting res-
olutions, Mayor Russo is still
going strong.
At the end of his term in
2010, he will have served 21
years on the council, and,
while he's reluctantly stated
that he probably won't run
for council again, many resi-
dents hope to see that famil-
iar tuft of curly mayoral
locks return to city hall.

Local girl slain
in brutal assault

On July 31, a jury indicted
Palm Beach Gardens resi-
dent Jason Shenfeld on
charges of first-degree mur-
der in the death of a local
teenager.
Eighteen-year-old Aman-
da Buckley was found dead
in Mr. Shenfeld's closet at his
parent's home on July 20.
The medical examiner iden-
tified severe bruising and
evidence of sexual assault,
eventually determining the
cause of death to be stran-
gulation.
Investigators found duct
tape in Ms. Buckley's hair,
and later disclosed that, in
his room, Mr. Shenfeld kept
several violent pornograph-
ic videos depicting men
gagging and abusing
women.
Last fall, Mr. Shenfeld had
been arrested for an alleged
sexual assault, but charges
were dropped after the state
attorney suspected that the
case was weak. According to
court documents, two local
women, ages 18 and 19, fell
asleep at Mr. Shenfeld's
house, and, when they
awoke, he pulled them into


Amanda Buckley
his room with a 12-inch
knife in hand, duct-taped
their appendages to his bed
and forced them to perform
sexual acts upon each other
and himself.
During the alleged assault,
Mr. Shenfeld threatened to
release his pit bull to attack
the women.
The state attorney's office
failed to press charges, cit-
ing "inconsistencies" in the
testimony of the two
women.
"Regardless of whether
there were inconsistencies
(in the 2006 case), their mis-
sion should have been to
find the truth," said Randy
Berman, attorney for the
two women.
Last month, Mr. Shenfeld
was sentenced to 15 years in
prison for violating his pro-
bation for a 2002 robbery.
The state has said it will
seek the death penalty for
the murder of Ms. Buckley. A
trial date has not been set.

Menin Development
sells Downtown
at the Gardens

In August, Menin Devel-
opment sold the upscale
retail center Downtown at
the Gardens to International
Mall Investors.
IMI, based in Skolkie, Ill., is
a joint venture of the Cali-
fornia Public Employees
pension and Miller Capital.
The company reportedly
paid anywhere from $150 to
$200 million for the chic
350,000 square-foot open-
air complex, whose anchors
include Whole Foods, a
Cobb 16 theater, The Yard-
house and The Cheesecake
Factory.
"The property wasn't pur-
chased outright," said
Andrew Miller of IMI. "We
bought an interest in the
property. There was an
offering sponsored by a bro-
ker and we were intrigued
by its physical presence.


Jason Shenfeld


Equally, we like the market."
IMI bought approximately
90 percent of the shares in
Downtown at the Gardens,
and, while many speculated
at the time of purchase that
the' sell-off suggested a
bright future for commer-
cial real estate in the area,
some saw the deal as indica-
tive of a struggling retail
market, citing frequently
empty shops and boutiques
along the polished Down-
town walkways.
Several restaurants at the
retail center reported
booming sales, including
Yardhouse and Ra Sushi, but
other, more remote loca-
tions within the complex
struggled to find consistent
clientele, making some sec-
tions of the space appear as
a marble-tinged ghost town.
Julie Kaminski, director of
public relations for the
shopping center, outlined
management's vision for
Downtown at the Gardens,
"We have one-of-a-kind
shops, not just national
chains. Our shopping expe-
rience is very different from
that of a mall. People can
find something here they
can't find anywhere else."

Prescription pill
arrests hit high

In October, Palm Beach
Gardens Police apprehend-
ed nine suspects for illegally
possessing prescription
pills. This represented the
highest number of monthly
arrests for prescription drug
abuse for 2007.
Since the beginning of the
year, Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office records indi-
cate that there have been 56
arrests for possession of pre-
scription pills in Palm Beach
Gardens, ranging from pos-
session of alprazolam
(Xanax) to oxycodone (Per-
cocet, OxyContin and Roxi-
cet). The arrest rate averages
to four to five per month.
This year, West Palm


Beach Police arrested 24
fewer suspects on the
same count, despite hav-
ing nearly twice the popu-
lation of Palm Beach Gar-
dens. When asked if this
discrepancy suggests that
there are more users in
Palm Beach Gardens, Palm
Beach Gardens Police
declined to comment.
James Durr, captain of the
Narcotics Division at the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, expressed his con-
cern about Florida's lack of
pharmaceutical drug moni-
toring.
"Right now, we're the pre-
scription pill grocery store
for the United States," he
said. "There's no communi-
cation between pharmacies.
A person can till a prescrip-
tion for OxVConin at a CVS
and go to a Walgreens the
same day and fill another
prescription."
Captain Durr said he sup-
ports a pharmacy-monitor-
ing bill that would create a
log of all prescriptions for
widely abused drugs. The
log would be stored in a
computer database, so a
person seeking to fill multi-
ple prescriptions over a
short amount of tune would
be flagged and refused by
the pharmacy.

Detectives probe
teenager's sudden
death
Palm Beach Gardens High
School students mourned
the death of their classmate,
14-year-old, Lakesia Hunt,
after she was found dead
behind an unoccupied
duplex iri' Riviera Beach on
Oct. 30.
Charron Brown, Lakesia's
integrated science teacher,
described her personality.
"She was extremely self-
motivated and very focused
on her grades. The class was
devastated (upon hearing
about her death).
"When the body was
found, nobody actually
knew (it was Lakesia's)
except for her close friends
who were aware that her
mom had filed a missing
person's report."
Lakesia was reported
missing four days prior to
the discovery of her body.
She was found less than a
block from her house on

Lawyer underwrites meal program
at foster care center

Last week, local attorney Richard Sla.wson donated $58,000
to Place of Hope, a Palm'Beach Gardens foster care facility.
Charles Bender, executive director of Place of Hope, said the
donation will be used to supply meals to more than 70 resi-
dents of the residential care centers over the next year.
"Mr. Slawson supplied the lion's share of the funds needed
(to feed the residents)," said Mr. Bender.
Mr. Slawson has contributed to the foster care organization
since its inception in 1999, providing support for children in
state custody.
Many of the residents at the Place of Hope were removed
from abusive family environments and placed in long-term
housing at the center off Isaiah Lane.
"I am honored to be able to support an organization that not
only helps hurting children and their families, but also one
that truly brings hope and healing to these children," said Mr.
Slawson.
Place of Hope recently added a building to its campus to
provide a learning center and meeting place for residents of
Village of Hope, a companion facility created last year to pro-
vide affordable housing to youths transitioning from foster
care to adulthood.
The center is also renovating two buildings to supply further
housing to adolescents who've spent much of their lives in fos-
ter care.
Mr. Slawson, a personal injury attorney with 35 years experi-
ence in the Gardens area, practices law at Slawson Cunning-
ham Whalen & Gaspari in North Palm Beach.
"Mr. Slawson has been a primary supporter since the begin-
ning. He's been with us through all this growth," said Mr. Ben-
der.

Cultures unite at local temple
Five Israeli women traveled to Temple Judea on Hood Road
last week to meet the congregation and share their culture
with local residents.
The women represented the Kurdish, Moroccan, Tunisian,
Yemenite and Kardite communities of Israel in an event organ-
ized by the Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches.
Donning clothes from their respective communities, each
woman spoke through an interpreter for about five minutes on
topics ranging from politics to native customs. The women
also used family recipes to prepare a buffet of ethnic food for
members of the temple.
After a 9 p.m. service, the women gave a dance performance,
which included a replication of a traditionalYemenite wedding.

Force said there were no obvi-
ous signs of trauma and no
wounds were detected by offi-
cers at the crime scene.
Police consider the circum-
stances surrounding her
death "frustrating."
According to Detective
Jones, her body had been
poorly concealed, placed in
the brush behind the unoccu-
pied house. The state of her
body made the initial identifi-
cation difficult, but, among
other indicators, dental
records confirmed that it was
Lakesia. The absence of any
serious wounds further com-
plicates the events surround-
ing her death.
The case remains unsolved,
and sheriff's deputies have
not taken any suspects into

ans, attended the event.
Speakers strived to keep
their words apolitical. They
focused on honoring veter-
ans and their service.
One theme pervaded
their speeches: remem-
brance.
"These great Americans
created our country, so let's
not forget them," said
Mayor Joe Russo.
Evelyn Alba from the
Department of Veterans'
Affairs added, "This park
will stand here for many
years and let our veterans
know that they have our
respect and that their con-
tributions and sacrifices
will be rememberedd"
The idea for the plaza
came about last summer,
when Councilman Hal
Valeche, a Vietnam veteran,
suggested the city do some-
thing to honor local ser-
vicemen, since no major
memorial had been con-
structed. -City staff brain-
stormed and came up with
the idea of using some pri-
vately donated developer
funds to build the plaza.
Phase II of Veterans' Plaza
is still under consideration.
Plans include adding bench-
es, a fountain and some land-
scaping to the site. Future
improvements amount to
about $269,000 of privately
donated funds.

cles allowed to park in resi-
dential zones.
Commercial vehicles with
advertising or signage that
covers more than 10 square
feet of the area on any side of
the vehicle need to be cov-
ered, either with a fitted cover
or magnetic signs matching
its color, under the amended
ordinance.
The vehicles are also safe if
they are kept in a garage or
screened on all sides. The
changes also allow for vehi-
cles with a manufacturer's
model rating of up to 1 ton.
Trucks marketed as a half-
ton can actually carry more
than 1 ton, Mr. Hemacki said
during the ordinance's first
reading on Nov. 7.
Since the village is using the
model rating, anyone with
say, a Ford F150, 250 or 350
would be compliant weight-
wise. Although adding exam-
ples of models should clarify
the policy to residents, anoth-
er portion of the policy had
taken care of the issue
already.
"We actually have dual pro-
tection (now) because we
don't allow dual tandem
trucks and anything over 350
would have to be dual tan-
dem," Mr. Knight said at the
Nov. 7 meeting.
The ordinance also includ-
ed stretch limousines
designed for commercial
transportation on its list of
vehicles prohibited from
parking overnight (11 p.m. to
7 a.m.) in residential zones.
The council defined a
stretch limousine as "any
automobile, sport utility vehi-
cle or van for hire, and of orig-
inal manufacture or remanu-
facture, that exceeds a seating
capacity of eight persons."

cered people could get into
semantics over it. Mr. Knight
assured him that the phrase
"exceeding eight persons"
should take care of any dis-
putes.
"We were looking for a way
to identify a commercial vehi-
cle and there's a little bit of
redundancy, because we did-,
n'twant someone to be able to
come back and say 'this is a
SLincoln Town Car, not a
limo,'" said Mr. Knight.
However at the second'
reading, one councilman was
still uncertain the language
was clear enough.
"I've been uncomfortable


with this from the beginning. I
have a sense this ordinance as
written is going to be difficult
to enforce and it's going to be
revisited by this council. I
wish it could be simpler," said
Councilman Darryl Aubrey.
Mr. Knight explained that
he felt by being more specific
it would be clearer to resi-
dents what is and is not
allowed.
For residents such as Ms.
Kramer, clarity is not the
issue, the principal of it is.
"I think,-it's. unfair for a
neighborhood that's been
here since the 1950s. (North
Palm Beach) has been a work-


ingman's neighborhood. We
don't live in a condo associa-
tion and we shouldn't be
treated that way," said Ms.
Kramer.
Village attorney Len Rubin
explained the amendments
were permissible under chap-
ter 166 of the Florida statutes,
but told Ms. Kramer she could
file a lawsuit if she wanted to,
however she would have to
prove the changes are unlaw-
ful and unconstitutional. She
believed it was unconstitu-
tional, she said. Phone calls to
Ms. Kramer for further com-
ment were not returned by
press time.

Loan
From page Al
ney, obtained the loan
through North Andros Assets
to purchase a tract of land in
the Bahamas. As time passed,
extension fees piled up on the
purchase, and Mr. Desantis'
associates, unable to find
additional funding, sunk deep
into financial quicksand.
As part of the deal, the
owner of the land, First Car-
ribean National Bank,
charged extension fees on the
$2.75 million plot, so the
longer Mr. Desantis took to
raise funds, the more the land
cost. Mr. Desantis is arguing
that Cordell Funding delayed
closing the loan and that thi
holdup resulted in these extra
fees, which, when combined
with the lender's, interest,
drained the money for condo
construction.
"Instead of getting it done
in a week, it ended up being
four months. By then, (the
interest and extension fees)
had eaten up all the funds for
construction," said Mr.
Desantis' lawyer, Gerald Rich-
man. He added that, early in

"The plaintiffs. (become)
concerned about how much
the litigation is going to cost,
and it discourages (them)
from proceeding. His strategy
is not going to work."
Mr. Gilbert, a 30-year veter-
an attorney, sees the case as a
metaphor for what's wrong
with litigation.
"Even if things are straight-
forward, black-and-white, (a
case) can take along time and
cost a lot of money to litigate.
People come away with the
sense that the legal system is
not sensible, rational and
responsible. This case is a
good illustration," he said.
Mr. Richman argues that
"the paper wars are on the
other side."
"We're just trying to effec-
tively defend the case. Mr.
Desantis was not acting as a
lawyer. He trusted Mr.
Rodriguez. Had it not been for
Mr. Rodriguez's representa-
tions that the (loan would
close) quickly, this wouldn't
have happened," said Mr.
Richman.

the deal, Mr. Desantis
attempted, on numerous
occasions, to contact Robin
Rodriguez, partner at Cordell,
but he was "conveniently
unavailable."
In response, Cordell Fund-
ing's attorney, Irwin Gilbert,
contended that, without addi-
tional loans, construction
would have been impossible
anyway, and the loan would
still have gone into default.
"That was the problem:
they had no way to move the
project forward," he said.
According to Mr. Gilbert,
Mr. Richman has bombarded
Cordell Funding with judica-.
tory papers. Five thick vol-
umes detailing the legal histo-
ry of the case were submitted
to Palm Beach County Circuit
Court, leaving Mr. Gilbert
wading through a litigative
mire, questioning the legiti-
macv of the claims.
"Usually in a case with that
much paper, one party is
attempting to 'paper' the
other party to death; paper
blitz-krieg," said Mr. Gilbert.

Dry cleaners need to clean it up
To the editor:
In this age of environmental awareness and "going
green," I would like to address the dry-cleaning dilem-
ma.
My husband and I do what we can for the cause. We
recycle everything we can and re-use whenever possible.
My husband's police uniforms get dry-cleaned regularly
and, in an effort to cut down on non-recyclables in our
landfills, he's asked that they not cover his uniforms in
their non-recyclable plastic, which so far they've refused
to do, and also if they would take back their hangers and
re-use them, which they won't. So what's a "green" body
to do?
I would drive out of my way to a dry-cleaner that uses
recyclable plastic and who re-uses their hangers. (We're
going to have to buy a bigger house to accommodate our
hangers.) When is the dry-cleaning industry going to
come into the 21st century of environmental responsi-
bility?

Does anyone have the number
for Homeland Security?

I tried to get a hold of Homeland Security, but couldn't
find it, so I called 911. They didn't have it either. What
kind of sheriff's department doesn't have the number for
Homeland Security so I can report illegal immigrants?
Editor's note: The Homeland Security contact for Flori-
da is Thomas J. Mclnerney. Call him at (772) 410-8300.

Too much strain on paramedics
After a recent accident I had to be transported to a
hospital. I realized that there is a lot of strain'on the
paramedics when they are lifting people, especially
someone bigger than me. There has to be some kind of
device that could help these men out. If someone has
any ideas, please let someone know.

Medical techs getting bad rap
This is in regard to the rant about medical technicians
needing more training.
The person who said that must not know what it feels
like to be a medical assistant or any kind of technician in
the medical field.
I am a nursing assistant, and I lift patients bigger than
me. And I have a stethoscope around my neck, and I
know which end to use on the patients chest. Whoever
wrote that rant should attend a medical assistant class. I


have worked with patients that have Alzheimer's, cancer
and AIDS. If you have any questions about what it feels
like to be a technician, go to an ACLF, nursing home or
an agency and go out with the nurses. This person does
not know how it feels.
I advise that person to shut up, because we are not the
cause of the outbreaks in the hospitals. The doctors and
the people who do not sterilize the equipment cause the
outbreaks. The person should watch what they are say-
ing, because you never know who will be washing your
behind when you are old.

Drivers, please slow down
It was on Jan. 30, 1989 that our lives were changed for-
ever. My niece was killed by some one going faster than
80 mph on Dairy Road in Titusville.
She was only 15 years old and she is missed each and
every day. I don't know why the driver was in such a
hurry. She is gone and he spent time in jail. I don't
believe he got up that day and thought if he broke the
law and drove too fast that it would end the life of a
young girl, but still, it did.
I have a teenager and I know his friends speed without
a thought.
Parents, take time to think when you are going over the
speed limit. You could be teaching a bad habit that could
take the life of your child or someone else's.

Telephone directory listings
Last week, a person complained about having to pay to
not be listed in the phone directory. I have some advice
for you and other readers. What the phone company did-
n't tell you is that you can choose to be listed under
whatever name you want. You do not have to be listed
under your billing name.
I have friends who don't want their names listed and
were upset by the non-listing charge. So instead they are
listed, but chose silly, ridiculous, made-up names.
The best part of it is that they can instantaneously spot
junk mail and marketing calls.
One friend chose a name that is virtually impossible to
pronounce. The moment they pick up the phone and
hear someone trying to pronounce the ridiculous name,
they laugh and hang-up.

Subjects or citizens?
I have long been aware of my ignorance regarding


American history between 1880 and 1940. I recently
started studying the subject and am very confused.
After the Spanish American War, we acquired Puerto
Rico and the Philippines as territories or insular posses-
sions.
These are referred to as "The United States of Ameri-
ca." Our Constitution was written for "The united States
of America." (Lower case "u".)
All possessions are legally designated by a two capital-
letter designators, PR and PI in the above cases. The resi-
dents are "subjects" rather than "citizens," possessing no
Constitutional rights.
The question I have is when we use the designator FL
rather than the abbreviation Fla., are we giving the feder-
al government tacit approval to treat us as subjects
rather than as citizens?
If so, then this is a huge rant.

Illegal aliens have it easy
You want free health care, public schooling, in-state
tuition, welfare and driver licenses for illegal aliens, all in
hope of votes and what you see as loyal minions?
Did it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you
will all be voted out?
Wake up. They already have their own people ready to
step in.
I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to
vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave sol-
dier's votes. At least some felons are legal citizens.
What part of illegal is so hard to understand?
Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I
consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and hold-
ing a license.is a privilege. I know a few people whohave
been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of
identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers?
Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My
daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools,
yet illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My chil-
dren could not travel to an out of state school and expect
to get in-state tuition, yet we give them to illegal aliens, not
to mention every form of public aid and top priority for
scholarships.
There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now, the
Mexican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be
patriotic to a country they fled, in our home land, yet we
have to fight to be patriotic in our own country?
Enough is enough. I'd move my family to Mexico when
it finally'empties out, but guess what, you can never be
come a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is
protected by the military.

Chance Bens and his wife, Michelle, of Riviera Beach, look over the program as they wait for the stage to be fixed after a
lighting fixture on the stage collapsed during the seventh annual Riviera Beach Jazz and Blues Festival in Riviera Beach
on Singer Island on April 13. Nobody was injured in the accident.


Mall
From page A2
reconstruction project was
an estimated $5 million,
with approximately $2 mil-
lion of that being used to
restore sand on Singer
Island's beach, said Dan
Bates, director of Palm
Beach County's environ-
mental enhancement
restoration division.
The funds came from the
county, participating munic-
ipalities and any state emer-
gency funds.
The majority of the sand,
which was brought to three
zones on the island between
John D. MacArthur Beach
State Park to the Condado
Condominiums was swept
away due to high winds that
resulted from a low-pressure
system near the Bahamas
and a high-pressure system
to the north in October.
At least 85 percent of the
approximated 59,000 tons
that was brought to the
beach on Singer Island in
June was lost due to the
storm activity, said Mr. Stahl.

The Ocean Mall
odyssey

A double lawsuit was set-
tled near the end of this year,
so redevelopment of the 11-
acre Ocean Mall property
should begin soon.
But the twists and turns in
this yearlong odyssey rival
that of suspense novel.
After Riviera Beach offi-
cials agreed to a 50-year
lease for the Ocean Mall
property with an auto-
matic renewal of 49 years
with Catalfumno Construc-
tion ard Development of
Palm Beach Gardens, lead
redeveloper near the end of
2006 Singer Island resi-
dent Dawn Pardo formed a
petition committee with
other residents Diana
DiMeo, Kathy Groover,
Draga Lindblom and Gor-
don Rowse. They gathered
signatures on three peti-
tions, one repealing the
lease decision; one amend-
ing the city's charter regard-
ing the lease length; and one
amending the city's charter
to put a maximum height of
five stories for any buildings
constructed on the Ocean
Mall property.
A dispute over the valida-
tion of signatures on the
petitions and methods of
collecting the signatures
resulted in duel lawsuits.

argued the petitions were
invalid, since some signa-
tures were from residents of
different cities and states,
the petition committee left
copies of the petitions unat-
tended, and residents,
besides those on the com-
mittee, circulated them. The
city filed a lawsuit against
the petition committee.
Committee members
argued they collected the

Pardo filed a lawsuit against
the city, its council members
and Ms. Ward, claiming all
three were not performing
their duties correctly. The
goal of her lawsuit was to get
the issues on the ballot in
March, said attorney John
Jorgensen, who represented
Ms. Pardo.
Palm Beach County judge
David Crow issued an alter-
native writ of mandamus in
January 2007. The alterna-
tive writ meant the city had
to show cause as to why
these issues should not be
put on the ballot, said Mr.
Jorgensen.
The city didn't, so the two
questions were put on the
ballot. Both passed with a
majority of residents' votes
on March 13.. The first
amendment, regarding the
lease, passed with 62 percent
of the votes, and the second,
regarding the height, passed
with 61 percent.
Dan Catalfumo still want-
ed to develop the property.
Joey Eichner, a senior vice
president at Catalfumo Con-
struction, presented a site
plan to the City Redevelop-
ment Agency board and the
public at a meeting at the
Hilton Hotel on Singer
Island to discuss phase one
of the redevelopment, which
is the 60,000 square-foot
retail building that will have
three or four restaurants in
it, said Mr. Eichner. When?
However, the focus turned
to the future hotel site. The
main problem with accept-
ing the site plan with the
hotel was that Catalfumo
had sued the city and peti-
tion committee over the vali-
dation of the referendum
that passed in March. If
Catalfumo prevailed, and
the referendums were found
invalid, the developer would
be allowed to build the 28-
story building, said Council-
woman Lynn Hubbard..
A settlement between
OMRD and the petition
committee was finally
reached and unanimously
approved at a special city
council meeting on Oct. 11.
As part of the settlement,


OMRD dismissed the law-
suit without prejudice and
all parties were responsible
for their respective legal fees.
Other terms of the settle-
ment included that the cur-
rent site plan for phase one
should keep being
processed and OMRD's site
plan for phase two would
include a five-story building,
including a minimum of 100
hotel suites.
The CRA board, which is
the same as the city council,
approved the site plan for
the first phase of redevelop-
ment of the Ocean Mall in a
4-1 vote, with Council-
woman Hubbard dissenting,
at a special meeting on Nov.
7.
The city council voted 4-1,
with Chairman Shelby Lowe,
dissenting, to approve
OMRD's site plan for phase
one of the construction on
the Ocean Mall at its meet-
ing on Dec. 5.
Construction should be
underway by March or April,
said Mr. Eichner.

City offers refunds
for mishaps during
annual jazz festival
The Riviera Beach City
Council approved refunds to
some Jazz and Blues Festival
ticket holders and vendors in
an amount totaling $20,110 at
its May 16 council meeting.
The motion was approved
with a 4-1 vote, with Council-
woman Norma Duncombe
dissenting.
The city initially refused
refunds for performance
delays caused by the stage's
roof collapsing, thunder-
storms and a tornado watch.
The roof above the stage col-
lapsed on the afternoon of
April 13, shortly before the
seventh annual Jazz and Blues
Festival wvas about to begin.
Performances got pushed.
back about three hours due to
the incident, and problems
continued on April 14. Stage
,repairs delayed performances
from their initial beginning
time of 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
"There is a disclaimer on the
tickets saying it's a rain or
shine event, and there will not
be any refunds," said Rose-
Anne Brown, the city's public
information officer.
However, there was one
exception to the rule.
"On Friday, prior to us know-
ing if or when the stage would
be repaired, anyone who left
before it was' fixed was given a
receipt for a refund," she said.
The city later decided to
allow residents to request.

Audit finds city's
practices need work

An audit demanded by
Riviera Beach residents-
showed that the city and
its' redevelopment agency
needed to keep better track
of expenditures and set
policies in place for record
keeping procedures,
according to a report from
the Florida Auditor Gener-
al's Office.
The office conducted an
audit after Florida's Joint
Legislative Auditing Com-
mittee, chaired by Rep.
Carl Domino, R-Jupiter,
Voted for it in October
2005. The report was com-
pleted in January.
When auditors checked
some of the purchases

made with employee-
issued credit cards, lack of
receipts to show what was
purchased and why was a
common problem. One of
the cards showed a charge
of $2,093 for repairs made
on a 1992 Lexus, which was

Personnel changes

Mark Bates, who
served as village manag-
er since October 2004,
resigned Jan. 11.
The voluntary move
was not entirely expect-
ed. Although no specific
reasons why he resigned
were given, Mr. Bates
decided it would best for
the village if he resigned
after one-on-one discus-
sions with each of the
council members, said
Councilman David Nor-
ris.
Jimmy Knight, village
director of public safety,
served as interim man-
ager until he was asked
to remain in the position
permanently in April.
Chief Knight's "new" job
came with an. annual
salary of approximately
$135,000, an annual cost
of living adjustment and
a possible 5 percent raise
for a successful annual
evaluation, according to
the contract.
The contract called for
Chief Knight to become
full-time village manag-
er by June 1.
Although he enjoyed
his reign as police chief
over the past two and a
half years, Chief Knight
had to select someone to
take his place. He chose
Steve Canfield because
they had known each for
a number of years as col-
leagues. He also knew
Chief Canfield had expe-
rience working with
employee unions, of
which the Village's pub-
lic safety department
has two, a police and fire
rescue union.
The village's commu-
nity development direc-
tor and chief building
official, Charles Can-
gianelli resigned at the
end of August.
Mr. Cangianelli, an
employee for approxi-
mately two years,
resigned after an inter-
nal investigation con-
cluded he conducted
personal business on vil-
lage time, violated the
village's take home car
policy and filed a fake

Chambers unite

The Jupiter/Tequesta/
Juno Beach Chamber of
Commerce and the
North Palm Beach Coun-
ty Chamber of Com-
merce officially became
the Northern Palm
Beach County Chamber
of Commerce on Oct. 1.
"We believe northern
Palm Beach County
doesn't have borders,"
said Ed Sabin, former
chairman of the board of
directors for the North
Palm Beach County
Chamber of Commerce
and current chairman of
the board of directors of
the new chamber.
The Northern Palm
Beach County Chamber
of Commerce covers
Tequesta to Riviera
Beach and the unincor-
porated areas surround-
ing the municipalities in
between.
The North Palm Beach
County Chamber of
Commerce, located in
Palm Beach Gardens,
was founded in 1948,
and the Jupiter/Teques-
ta/Juno Beach Chamber
of Commerce, located in
Jupiter, was founded a
year later. Over the
years, as the municipali-
ties have grown, the
chambers have become
about equal in size and
benefits, said Mr. Sabin.
Although the cham-
bers had discussed
merging at other times,
this year was a good time
for the merger, since

DON'T TANGLE
WITH
CURLY HAIR!
If you thought that it makes sense that
straight hair gets less tangled than
curly hair, it may be time to rethink
your logic. According to a French
biophysicist, curly hair gets less
tangled than straight hair. By having
hairdressers count tangles in the hair
of over 200 people during the course
of a week, the researcher found that
straight hair gets tangled about twice
as much as curly hair. The average
number of tangles was 5.3 per head of
straight hair and 2.9 per curly head.
Investigating further with geometrical
models of hair, the biophysicist found
that, although straight hairs interact
less often with each other than curly
hairs, they habitually do so at steep
angles, which causes tangles.
You can defend your hair from tangles
and enjoy soft, silky hair by having
routine haircuts and using quality
shampoos and conditioners. Express
your individuality with a new hair
style. Call JONATHAN T' SALON
at (561) 626-1829 to schedule an
appointment. A stylist can recommend
a cut or a cut and color based
on your personal preferences, facial
construction, skin tone, and lifestyle.
While you're here, pick up an i-bella
hydrating conditioner or intensive
nourishing treatment. We are located
at 4517 PGA Blvd. Best wishes for a
happy, healthy New Year!
P.S.: If you have curly hair, you are
encouraged to work with it and make it
your signature.


The new chamber now
has 37 directors. Current
directors will stay on until
their terms expire. The
board of directors will
eventually be.reduced to b
somewhere around 18 or
22 members, which is a
very manageable board,
said Ms. Dent.
As for the location of the
new chamber, staff will
continue to work out of
both offices, but the offi-
cial address of the cham-
ber that of the former
Jupiter Tequesta Juno
Beach chamber.

Village resident
finds strange sea
creature
North Palm Beach resi-.
dent Jay Garbose was div-'
ing with a group of people
on Juno Ledge, a mile off
shore from Juno Beach,
when he spotted a myste-
rious creature on the,
ocean floor.
"I saw what I thought


"It could stretch itself and condense. It was
gray and tubular, like a fire hose, and extend-
ed 7- to 10-feet long '

Jay Garbose
North Palm resident describing sea creature


was broken soft coral until
it started oozing," said Mr.
Garbose.
"It could stretch itself
and condense. It was gray
and tubular, like a fire
hose, and extended 7- to
10-feet long. It was very
stretchy, like taffy, and felt
like putty," he added.
Mr. Garbose, an under-
water videographer, video-
taped the creature while
trying to observe it from
on top of the camera.
Usually if someone does
not know what,, creature
they just saw,; someone
else in the group does, or
they find out through
research. That was not the
case with this creature..

Pitfalls to avoid when choosing



a car service department

Editor's note: This
column originally
appeared in the June 9,
2006 edition.
Before I get into the
pitfalls, it is impor-
tant to understand
how important it is to have
your car serviced accord-
ing to the manufacturer's
recommendations. The
pitfalls and consequences
of not doing so can be
equal to or greater than
those you might experi-
ence at the hands of an
incompetent or unethical
service department.
I strongly recommend
that you have your car
serviced and repaired by a
franchised dealer of the
make of your vehicle. I
know that this statement,
coming from a franchised
car dealer, may be met
with some skepticism.
Listen to my reasons
before passing judgment.
Modern vehicles are
highly complex computer-
ized machines requiring
very sophisticated diag-
nostic equipment and
highly-trained technicians.
The evolution of new,
expensive diagnostic
equipment requires
constant updating. The
evolution of car technolo-
gy requires continuing
education of dealers'
factory-trained techni-
cians who attend many
weeks of schools every
year.
Forty years ago, it was
possible for a really good
mechanic to fix anybody's
car. Those days are gone
and your car needs a
highly-trained specialist
with the very latest diag-
nostic equipment. It is
impossible for an inde-
pendent service company
to be competent m servic-
ing and repairing all makes
of automobiles.
Carefully choose the
dealership that will service
your car. You do not have
to take your car to the
dealership that sold you
the car for warranty
repairs, as many believe.
Every dealership of your
make car will welcome


EARL STEWART
On Cars

your warranty and non-
warranty work.
SDo your homework on
which dealer has the best
service department. Every
dealer is graded in cus-
tomer satisfaction by the
manufacturer. Ask to see a
copy of his customer
satisfaction index scores.
Check with the Better
Business Bureau and the
county office of consumer
affairs.
When you take your car
in for maintenance or
repairs, always ask for an
estimate. State law
requires that a service
department not exceed a
written estimate by more
than 10 percent. When
paying the bill, scrutinize
the detail to be sure that
you know exactly what
each charge means.
Most service depart-
ments add a fee on top of
everything else with


.(

*l&


ABSOLUTE
WELLNESS
SPA since s


various labels such as
"miscellaneous supplies,"
"sundry supplies," "envi-
ronmental handling," etc.
This fee is simply a 5
percent or 10 percent
charge tacked onto the
total bill. If you object to
this fee, which you certain-
ly should, dealers will
often waive it.
You will find that prices
for maintenance such as oil
change, alignment, tire
rotation and balancing, etc.,
are usually priced competi-
tively. Where you have to be
careful is in the pricing of
major repair items like
transmission, engines and
air-conditioners.
When quoted a price on
a big repair, don't be afraid
to negotiate. If you let it be
known that you are willing
to take your car elsewhere
(even if you're bluffing),
you can often negotiate
the price down significant-
ly.
You should always make
an appointment before
bringing your car in.
Appointments should be
scheduled at relatively
slow times and days. Avoid
bringing your car in early
on a Monday morning and
other very busy times. You
want the service advisor to
spend as much time with
you as is necessary. This
will allow you to drive the
car with the service advisor
if necessary to identify a
specific problem like a

squeak, rattle or vibration.
Pick your car up at a
time when the service
advisor or technician has
time to road test the car
with you again to be sure
that the problem was fixed.
Don't be shy about
asking for a loaner car
when you have to take
your car back two or three
times for a repair that was
not done properly. It's the
dealership's fault and you
should not be inconve-
nienced. On a comeback,
always talk with the service
manager directly and ask
that they assign their best
technician to the job.
As I have said in earlier
columns, there is nothing
more important than
choosing the right dealer-
ship to do business with.
No service department is
perfect and never makes a
mistake. What you want to
find is that service depart-
ment that, in addition to
being competent, will 'fess
up to its occasional
mistakes, sincerely apolo-
gize and make them right.

Mall
From page A7
not listed as a city-owned
vehicle, according to the
audit report.
Auditors also found fault
with revenues from the
half-cent sales tax being
applied to repayment of a
bond issue used by the
City Redevelopment
Agency. The audit report
states Florida statutes
mandate half cent sales
tax can only be used by
municipalities for city-
wide programs, munici-
pality utility tax relief or to
pay interest on any capital
projects.
The audit also found
that CRA executive direc-
tor Floyd Johnson's con-
tract provides him with a
city vehicle, but the
agency had no policy con-
cerning mileage or other
uses.
Auditors also discovered
that the city had not remit-
ted sales tax from the city's
annual Jazz and Blues Fes-
tival to the Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue for the
past five years. After tlhe
finding; the city calculated
the total plus interest and
sent in the $28, 460 it
owed.
Some of the other issues
have begun to be resolved,
according to city manager
Bill Wilkins.
In a letter to the audi-
tor's office, he said he is
reviewing current policies
and has "recognized that
the current paper-based
system is obsolete," and is
considering implementing
an electronic system. Mr.
Wilkins also agreed with
the findings about card
use, so purchasing guide-
lines have been revised
and receipt requirements
have been enforced, he
said in the letter.
The auditors were to


return in 18 months for a
follow-up audit, said audit
manager James Dwyer.

Costly consultant's
contract cancelled

Bernard Kinsey, a former
Xerox executive and co-
chairman of Rebuild Los
Angeles, left Riviera Beach
when his contract was up in
May. The Riviera Beach City
Council voted 4-1 against
renewing his contract at a
special meeting on Feb. 20.
"(I'm) ready to get on my
plane and not come back,"
said Mr. Kinsey, who came
to the city in May 2006 as
lead negotiator for its rede-
velopment projects.
The initial contract
between the City Redevel-
opment Agency, Riviera
Beach and Mr. Kinsey cov-
ered a six-month period,
and was extended for
another six months in
November 2006. Former
Councilwoman Liz Wade
agreed with Mr. Kinsey's
argument that he "deliv-
ered," or was successful in
getting the contract signed
between the city and
OMRD. He also argued that
he "worked hard to bring in
community benefits," but
neither point was able to
save his contract. Former
council Chairwoman Ann
Miles said she expected more
for the money the city spent
on Mr. Kinsey.
"For $3,000 a day some-
one needs to be multi-task-
ing and talking with more
than one developer," she
said.
Mr. Kinsey doubted he
would return to Riviera
Beach for anything except a
visit, he said.
"Frankly, I had no interest
in extending this contract. It
seems my contract, invoices
and everything I have done
since I came here has
always under been under


scrutiny and I'm tired of it. I
can't wait for May 19, so I
can move on," said Mr. Kin-
sey.

New resort opens

A ribbon cutting was held
to officially open The Resort
at Singer Island on April 10.
The resort, located at
3800 N. Ocean Drive, has
239 condominium hotel
suites and 66 private resi-
dential units. It also has
three restaurants, a spa and
wedding gazebo. Rooms
range in price from $275 to
$5,000 per night. In celebra-
tion of the resort's opening,
guests could take advantage
of a special $315 per night
introductory rate through
May.

Timeshares approved
for former hotel site

The Crowne Plaza Hotel at
3200 North Ocean Drive
closed in August and was
converted into two 19-story
timeshare buildings run by
Marriott.
Troy Ash, vice president of
Marriott, who is in charge of
the Florida team, informed
Riviera Beach City Council
members and residents that
the company would hold job
fairs, host a job shadowing
program and work with local
high schools.
Marriott will also work with
local businesses in the area,
he said.
Guests slated to stay at the
Crowne Plaza this summer
were placed at various Mar-
riott locations in Singer
Island, Riviera Beach and
West Palm Beach. Some of
Crowne's employees were
transferred, too.
The timeshares are expect-
ed to be completed in 2010.

Historic tugboat
comes to town

The Huntington, a historic


tugboat that brought in sev-
eral ships duringWorldWar I,
aircraft carriers, such as the
U.S.S. John E Kennedy, luxury
liners, such as the Queen Eliz-
abeth II and others over the
course of its 61 years of serv-
ice, arrived at its new "home,"
Peanut Island, on June 12.
It was donated to the Palm
Beach Maritime Museum of
West Palm Beach, said John
Grant, the museum's founder
and chairman of the board.
Built by the Newport News
Shipbuilding and Dry Dock
Company in Virginia in 1933,
the black, rustic red, 109-foot
tugboat, which weighs 271
tons, retired from its life of
service in 1994. Since then it
has served as a museum in
Norvolk, Va. It now serves as
both a museum and a class-
room for the Palm Beach
Maritime Academy of West
Palm Beach, a charter school
operated by the Maritime
Museum.
The Huntington is well pre-
served, and mostly every-
thing, from the wooden flag-
pole, smokestack and
weatherglass on the tugboat
is original. The engines are
still present, but do not run,
said Mr. Grant.
SThe Huntington was origi-
nally powered by steam, but
switched to the electric drive
engines it still has in 1952.
The Huntington was retired
mainly because as ships got
bigger, so did tugboats, said
Mr. Grant.
Due to a need for more
space in Norfolk's waterways,
the private group of owners
searched for a new home for
the. treasured item of United
States history, and a class-
mate of Mr. Grant's contacted
him about it. !
S"I couldn't think of a better
one than Peanut Island," said
Mr. Grant.
The museum spent
$100,000 to bring the Hunt-
ington to Florida from Vir-
ginia, which took a week
because they could only go
about five or six knots, he
said.
It is docked near two other


historical facilities on the
island: President John E
Kennedy's bomb shelter and
a former U.S. Coast Guiard
station. Both are a ferry ride
from the Riviera Beach or
Sailfish Marinas.
The Huntington opened
to the public about a month
after it arrived. The Palm
Beach Maritime Museum
staff had to install a proper
gangway for people to get
on board, said Mr. Grant.

Police department
changes approach
to reduce crime

The Riviera Beach Police
Department began operat-
ing under a district-based
community oriented
policing initiative Sept. 1.
The change meant that
certain officers were
assigned to one of three
districts set up in Riviera
Beach, instead of rotating
throughout the communi-
ty as they did under the
former centralized system.
"With commanders and
officers being able to focus
their attention on smaller
areas within the city, we'll
be able to establish rela-
tionships and partner with
residents and businesses
as well as other communi-
ty stakeholders," said Riv-
iera Beach Police Chief
Clarence Williams.
The relationships are an
integral part of the initia-
tive. By creating more of a
familiar presence in the
community, people who
cause trouble will be
forced out, said Comman-
der Leonard Mitchell.
More than 20 officers are
working with Commander
Mitchell in District 1.
District 2 includes the
area from Old Dixie High-
way to North Congress
Avenue and District 3
includes North Congress
Avenue to North Haverhill
Road.

Pops plays Gardens theater


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer


PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS The Palm Beach
Pops opened its Eissey
Campus Theater concert
series last week with a
medley of nostalgic holi-
day tunes.
Blazing through a pro-
gram of seasonal classics,
the symphony warmed
up for its second season
at Palm Beach Communi-


ty College's theater off
PGA Boulevard.
Last year, the Pops sold
out several shows at the
venue with acclaimed
performances of- Ameri-
can songbook standards.
Conductor Bob Lappin
kept the mood light for
the holiday concert, and
between the highly col-
ored crescendos and
harpists' scale runs, he
recounted the history of
the Pops and told jokes to


the audience.
"You've all heard the
song 'Sleigh Bells,' right?"
he asked. After everyone
signaled "yes" with quiet
applause, Mr. Lappin
responded, "Good. Then
we won't play it."
He was kidding, of
course.
The orchestra put
together a fun show,
imbued with feathery
rhythms and familiar
melodies.


Sunday


Trumpets mimicked the
neigh of a horse as synco-
pated hoof sounds kept
the beat.
The show opened with
a hodgepodge orchestral
arrangement of the title
song from the play "Guys
and Dolls." The tune set
the mood for the concert,
but things got dicey when
some bongo players trot-
ted out on stage to sur-

This time of the year
everybody is
looking for that
perfect gift. Is a puppy a
perfect gift?
It could be, given you
thought about what it
means to get a puppy for
somebody or even for
yourself.
Make sure you are not
giving it to a child
younger than age 10,
unless you are 100
percent aware that some
adult will end up taking
care of the puppy.
I see it over and over
again. Somebody will call
me foi dog training, and
when I get to the clients
they tell me, "We bought
the puppy for our kids
and we would like them
to be the trainer of the
new puppy."
That is great. I love
children to grow up with
a dog. It can teach them a
lot about responsibility
and it is nice for a child to
have a trusted friend to
talk to and play with.
It could all be so nice,
however, in reality,
children lose interest very


disliking their new friend
and some of them will
even handle this situation
unfairly for the animal.
What's mom to do
when the young puppy
runs after the child and
trips it to the floor? Sure
you start working with
the kid and the dog, but
how much time and
patience does mom have?
Most people will get
through that first year of
puppyhood and children
in the same household,
however, I have also seen
many cases where the
dog was given away
before it even turned 1
and that is not fair.
Please make sure
before you buy a puppy
that you are able to bring
Sit up in a proper manner.
Keep in mind that a
young puppy needs lots
of training and is very
time consuming. It needs
to be walked anywhere ,
from six tol0 times a day
during the first couple of.
weeks. It needs to be fed
and exercised a lot,
depending on the breed,
some more than others.
Puppies need to be
loved to grow up to be
wonderful dogs. Do not
get a puppy if you know it
will spend eight to 10
hours alone in a crate
each day because life is
so busy.


Also, think about the
breed you will choose.
Make sure to educate
yourself on the needs of
your new friend. A
Labrador retriever is very
different from a little Jack
Russell terrier, and so on.
If you really feel your
family is ready for a dog,
maybe you should foster
one for a couple weeks to
see how a dog will fit into
your life.
Many shelters are
looking for foster homes
in order for dogs to stay
stable and not lose their
ability to be placed in a
real home one day.
Please do not misun-
derstand me. I make my
living in the pet industry
and would love for you to
have a new puppy.
But I also know how
overwhelmed people can
get with their new
puppies and I am just
trying to prevent prob-
lems for the pet and the
owner.
Thank you for being
responsible and reading
this article.

Resolve to balance your life


So another year bites
the dust. But that's
just the calendar, isn't
it?
How are you doing with
your New Year's resolu-
tion? Have you decided to
change anything this year?
Or have you joined the
cynical majority and given
up on NewYear's resolu-
tions because you've
learned they just don't
work, that you can't
change like that? I don't
blame you because I've
been there. Been there,
done it to death.
Nothing is magical
about a new year. And
remember Y2K? Some
people thought a new
millennium might change
what a new year could not.
But we found out what we
already knew. A new
millennium won't change
you, either. These are just
numbers we make up to
keep track of time passing.
Your baggage follows you
wherever you go, even into
a new year, and there's no
such thing as a clean slate.
You can't start over. It's way
too late for that.
This doesn't mean you
can't change, but let's be
reasonable. A change
might be worthwhile and
even necessary. But all
behavior occurs in a
context. How about
changing that?
How about a more
graceful approach this
year?
Instead of cruelly
ejecting that old, useless
habit or adding some
radically unfamiliar new
one, (though undoubtedly
beneficial) would it make
any sense to strive for
more balance in your life
this year?
I'm talking about a
lifestyle change, sure, but
nothing radical. Just a tad
more awareness of what
you're really trying to do,
where you want to go in
your life. This might, like
losing a bit of weight, be a
valid resolution for most
of us in every new
year;something that needs
a renewed commitment
and has the potential to

n the alphabet of
vitamins, ou may
have missed vitamin
H, but you probably
recognize its common
name, biotin.
It is a B vitamin with a
growing reputation.
Dermatologists, hair
dressers and manicurists
often recommend a
biotin supplement
because of the role it
plays in forming keratin,
the main protein for hair
and nail growth.
You find biotin as an
ingredient in shampoos
and conditioners, and in
supplement form as a
single ingredient, or
included in specific
formulas supplying a
variety of nutrients to
support the hair.
Hair growth may be
.affected by a surprising
number of medications,
often because they
interfere with absorption
of B vitamins and miner-
als: antacids, antibiotics,
antidepressants, arthritis
and blood pressure drugs,
birth control pills and
diuretics.
Hormonal imbalances
during pregnancy and
menopause, high doses of
the hormone DHEA and
thyroid irregularities may
also cause hair to thin or
fall out. Normally, we lose
up to 200 hairs a day, but
if you seem to be losing
an unusual amount of
hair, it may be time to
consult your dermatolo-
'. gist.
Hair loss may also be
an after-effect of surgery

prise the audience, and
mucked the players' timing
up a bit, mostly because of
the volume discrepancy
between the symphony
and the guest percussion-
ists.
Toward the middle of the
program, Cantor Norman
Brody of Temple Beth El in
West Palm Beach, took the
stage to sing "L'dor Vador"
("From Generation to Gen-
eration"). He delivered a
spirited performance
despite having "three min-
utes to rehearse," accord-
ing to Mr. Lappin.
The traditional Jewish
hymn had somber over-
tones but seemed to uplift
the audience members,

The show's climax

sat down at the piano to

from the chirpier holiday
tunes, playing with a little
more emotion for the num-
ber.
Other highlights of the
performance included the
Pops' snappy renditions of
Jimmy van Heusen's "Here's
that Rainy Day" and the
classic "I'll Be Seeing You,"
by Sammy Fain.
While there were occa-
sional timing problems,
drummer Frank Derrick
rocked a solid beat, and
concert master and lead
violist Lazlo Pap showcased
an exquisite vibrato.
In his short dialogue with
the audience, Mr. Lappin
outlined the objective of


the Palm Beach Pops
Orchestra: to preserve the
American songbook.
Mr. Lappin stressed that
musical heritage needs be
kept intact for younger
generations, lamenting the
"negativity" in modern
styles, such as rap. He
even went so far as to say
that "hip-hop isn't music."
While the concert had a
few musical nicks, the play-
ers delivered and Mr. Lap-
pin accomplished exactly
what he set out to do.
By intermission, the
audience must have felt the
Christmas spirit, as if they
were inside a souvenir

Ring in New Year with

Italian treat from 'Mamma'

Sell. Hope you had a
wonderful, blessed
Christmas.
Now it's time to ring in
2008. Here are a couple of
NewYear's traditions for you
to ponder.
Up north, eating a piece of
pickled herring at midnight
and touching a dollar bill,
symbolically, means there will
always be food on the table
and money in your pocket.
Here in the south you must
eat pork and black-eyed peas
on NewYear's Day..
I can remember NewYear's
Eve being a celebration where
we made as much noise as
possible at the stroke of
midnight. I have some
noisemakers from my parents
that date back more than 70
years (no cut fingers from
sharp metal, that's for sure).
To me, it's a capital sin to be
sleeping at midnight. I used to
wake my kids up just to make
noise. Silly? Childish? Maybe
so, but I hope to never lose
that excitement.
Resolve to love one another
more. Don't think there will
always be tomorrow. Some-
times tomorrow never comes.
Today's column is a tribute
to "Mamma," my paternal
grandmother.
For NewYear's she made
cookies; not regular cookies,
but special Italian treats
coated with honey and
topped with colored candy
sprinkles. Strufoli (honey
clusters) many of you are
familiar with, but her other
specialty I'll bet you've never
heard of tordillo (hope the
spelling is right), which was
made with olive oil and wine.
It was everyone's favorite.
When I finally decided to
make them, I kept hearing
Mamma saying, "You have to
feel when it's right."
Back-my memory went to
when I was 17. had asked for
the recipe and Mamma said in
her delightful Italian accent,
"You come over and we do it
together."
What I thought was going to
be very easy turned out to be a
bit of a fiasco when I kept
questioning Mamma's
instructions.
Here's how it went while
making the tordiflos:
Mamma: "Dump flour on


microwave
3/4 cup wine
Canola oil, enough to fill a
medium saucepan
halfway
1 cup honey
1-1/2 tbsp. sugar
Multi-colored candy
sprinkles
Using the dough hook on
your electric mixer or a food
S processor, mix first three
ingredients together. Place
dough on cutting board and
knead for about 5 minutes
until smooth and silky
e Break off small pieces of
ru dough and roll into a cylinder
about 1/2-inch wide and 2-
ir?" inches long. Place thumb (or 3
h," she fingers) in center of cylinder
)ur on and press dough down firmly
e in the as you push forward then
pour in toward you, causing the
glass cylinder to curl and look
somewhat like a seashell.
?" Fry cookies a few at a time
rising, until golden. Drain on paper

nd said, towels. In a medium
saucepan, bring honey and
her sugar to a boil, lower heat and
simmer for 5 minutes. Add
uldn't cookies a few at a time,
it' feel turning to coat. Remove to a
platter with a slotted spoon.

PALM BEACH GARDENS
It's official. Last week,
local pitching whiz Brittany
Bowles announced that
she'll attend the University
of Georgia next fall and play
for the Bulldogs softball
team.
The Palm Beach Gardens
High School star has
proven over her high school
career that it's virtually
impossible to score on her,
recording a 27-2 record and
holding batters to a measly
'0.4 runs per game in her
sophomore year. In her
three years, she's led the
Gardens High School
Gators to two state champi-
onships and a division title.
Last year she had to sit
out due to a nagging shoul-
der blade injury, but she's
returning for the upcoming
season in February to shut-
down her opposition.
"I don't get phased easily.
I keep my cool and don't get
rattled. I push myself to the
limit when I do things and I
don't get frustrated if some-
one gets a hit off me," Brit-


tany said, when asked
about her greatest asset as a
pitcher.
Leaving Palm Beach Gar-
dens doesn't seem unset-
tling to the softball star,
either. She says that while
she'll miss her friends, she's
always planned to leave the
state to attend university,
and the bustle of a college
town is a welcome change.
"I don't really know many
people up there, but I'm
really excited to start a new
life. That's what I wanted to
do," she said.
Brittany hadn't consid-
ered attending University
of Georgia before visiting
the campus, but when she
arrived, she said the
school's atmosphere drew
her in.
"I never thought about
going to Georgia, but when
I went there,. the coaches
were really nice and the
campus was beautiful.
Everything just felt right.
It's a really good school to
go to for academics and
everything I'm trying to
do," she said.

Bulldogs


The Bulldogs stepped up
their game in 2002, when
Coach Lu Harris-Champer
took over and helped the
team win its first postsea-
son game. They put togeth-
er a 59-17 season, earning
them a No. 22 national
ranking. According the
Bulldogs' Web site, Ms. Har-
ris-Champer's six-year
record is 301-108 and she
has now guided three dif-
ferent programs to the
NCAA Tournament. She has
the seventh highest win-
ning percentage of active
coaches at the Division I-A
level with at least five years
experience.
Since 2002, the Bulldogs
have won three SEC East-


ern Division softball cham-
pionships and have com-
peted in the NCAA region-
als for four straight years.
Humble about her new
team's accolades, Brittany
said she's looking forward
to taking her game to the
next level. She plans to
compete in the upcoming
Olympic games, and, if she
receives endorsements and
offers fall into place, the
budding pitcher wants to
continue her softball career
after college.
Brittany's maintained a
grade point average over
3.5, so, if softball's appeal
wanes, her wits might serve
her as well as that potent
pitching arm.

Local Agent Guarantees Home

Sale in Tough Florida Real Estate

Market


What if, when you
listed your home for
sale, you could receive
a guarantee from the
Realtor that your home
would be sold? In this
real estate market where
so many homes are
languishing with "for
sale" signs on the lawn,
some for more than two
years, Liz Bacall at
Keller Williams has a
program to get homes
sold fast and for top
dollar.
"When I list a home,
I offer the Sellers
guarantee that if their
home does not sell, I
will buy it," Bacall said.
"I strive to be the kind of
Realtor I would want if
I were selling and buying
a home."
But guaranteeing the
sale of a house? "Yes,"


said Bacall, "Because it
enables people to get on
with their lives."
We all know how it
works when we want to
buy our next home, but
the old one has not sold.
Even though we make an
offer, if another Buyer
comes along who has no
contingency, we lose.
Bacall guarantees the
sale of the home so
that the Seller has a
solid offer to purchase
their next home. This
Guaranteed Sale Program
works for new construc-
tion home purchases, too.
Builders can refer their
new home buyers to
Bacall for her to list and
guarantee the sale of
their old home, and the
sale can be completed
on time.
"I follow the Realtor


Code of Ethics, so if a,
Seller has. their home
listed with another agent,
it is not ethical for me to
talk with them," Bacall,
states. "However, if
someone's listing has
expired and the home is
no longer on the market,
then I can work with
them.
Whether they are re-
listing or listing for the
first time, I'm delighted
to offer my services to
anyone who is serious
about selling their home."
Information about Bacall's
program is available 24-
hours a day at both a hot-
line and a website. Go to
www.guaranteedpbg.com
or call 1-800-895-1037
and enter #4066. Not
intended to solicit
property currently for sale.

Binks Forest has been renovated into jewel of a golf course


Imagine how you would
look if you had spent the
past five years without
brushing your hair, shaving,
trimming your nails or
changing your clothes.
Not a pretty sight for the
mind's eye.
Now imagine the same for
a golf course.
Since 2002, Binks Forest
Golf Club in Wellington sat
unattended and uncared
for. Then in February,
Aquila Property bought the
course and decided to
resurrect the once-proud
facility. What I witnessed at
the November re-grand
opening is a fantastic
reclamation of a beautiful
track.
Raising the course from
the flames of neglect was
not an easy task, but the
men and women of Aquila
and KemperSports man-
agement rolled up their
sleeves and turned what
had become 18 fields of
weeds, overgrown grass and
wild flowers into a splendid
golf course once again.
The company's partners
live in Wellington and the
surrounding communities,


their children have graduat-
ed from and attend local
schools, and they've
watched for years, along
with the rest of us, as this
beautiful course fell into
disrepair.
The residents of Binks
Forest and the greater
Wellington community
deserve a first-class golf
course and club. With care
and resourcefulness Aquila
has accomplished just that.
"We are confident that we
have the right team in place
to execute Binks Forest's
transformation and return
to greatness," said Jordan C.
Paul, chairman of Aquila.
"We plan to bring a new
and improved jewel back to
Wellington."
Gene Bates, one of the
original architects, along
with Johnny Miller, was
charged with modernizing
the features and playability
of Binks Forest, while
preserving the integrity of
the course's original design.
When the course initially
opened in 1990 it was
heralded for its rich foliage,
heavily forested terrain and
North Carolina feel. When


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


work to restore and reno-
vate the course began,
keeping those traits, while
tweaking the course for the
demands of today's golfers,
was atop the list.
I never had the pleasure
of playing the course prior
to its closing. I knew that
the course was carved from
a forest of pines and wound
through a beautiful devel-
opment. I was thinking
"narrow," but soon found
, that this is not the case
here.
Homes are set well back
from the fairways and
greens. Drives that miss the


fairways are not gobbled up
by fences, ponds or patios.
Instead you have to deal
with beautiful trees to
negotiate your way toward
the hole or back to the
fairway.
The course plays to a par
of 72 with four sets of tees.
Better players can tackle
the course from as far back
as 7,174 yards. The rest of
us have choices of 6,626,
5,999 or 5,268 yards.
Binks Forest begins with a
short par-4, but the gloves
come off when you put the
flag back in the hole. From
here, golfers are tested with
a difficult par-5 and a long,
beautiful par three. The
front nine ends with the
longest par-4 that I have
ever played.
After a delicious sandwich
and a cold beverage at the
turn, your back nine begins
with the tightest fairway on
the course. A long par-4 and
a true risk-reward par-5
follow. The par-3 13th is a
monster that plays as long
as 244 yards from the back
tees. My lone birdie came
on the 14th and one of my
playing partners had an


eagle putt on the par-5
17th.
The finishing hole
features the most difficult
approach shot on the
course. The green sits at the
bottom of a large hill with
the clubhouse behind and
water in front. Picking the
right club here is a must.
Everyone in my group was
thrilled with the golf course.
There is plenty of variety on
the course. The waste areas
around the tees and along
several fairways provide
great contrast and frame
the holes nicely. We espe-
cially loved the roll that our
drives were getting on the
perfect fairways.
"This is one of the nicest
courses that I have played
in Florida," said Fernando
Barrios, one of my playing
partners. "Everything is


great. This is beautiful."
With the accolades I
heard from my group and
others at the course, I was
left to wonder why Binks
Forest Golf Club had been
left for so long. Then I
realized it really doesn't
matter anymore. The club
and course are back and the
future looks bright.
