'Gray' water to keep


golf course green


Village contracts with water utility


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer


NORTH PALM BEACH
- The green at the North
Palm Beach Country Club
will soon stay that way
with the use of "gray"
water.
Gray water is waste
water that has been treat-
ed.
Other areas, including
landscaping at village
hall, the library, public
safety building, tennis
areas, medians along U.S.
1 and Lakeside Park, will
also stay healthy because


of reclaimed water.
The Village Council
voted unanimously at its
meeting on Jan. 10 to
accept a contract with
Seacoast Utility Authori-
ty, which will supply the
gray water. However,
some work needs to be
done before it takes
effect.
The village currently
has a single water source.
It pumps surface water
from the Earman River, or
C-17 Canal, to an irriga-
tion pond in the south-
west part of the golf
course. The village's per-


mit with the South Flori-
da Water Management
District for this use
expires in March.
This fact, and the fact
that the pump has an
increased probability at
failing due its age, led vil-
lage officials to look into
alternate sources. The
line, which runs along
U.S. 1, is about as old as
the village -- 51-- and if
it breaks or leaks, the
water supply would be
disrupted. The village

Radio with a recovery angle

Gardens man hosts show to reach those coping with addiction'


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer
PALM BEACI GARDENS
-After five sleepless days of
huffing cocaine and drink-
ing alcohol, Palm Beach Gar-
dens resident and longtime
music industry insider Ricky
Leigh decided his habits


were unmanageable.
Green-skinned, he
propped himself up in his
'77 Pontiac Firebird and hit
the gas.
At the pinnacle of his drug
use, Mr. Leigh was neither
broke nor professionally
inept. He hosted a premium
time-spot radio show in
Washington, D.C., and was


in decent financial shape.
Physically and psycholog-
ically, however, he was dete-
riorating.
"I was a cadaver in the
making," he said. "I buried
friends who had done half
the cocaine I was doing."
After a seven-month
recovery process, Mr. Leigh
went on to write columns for


"Hit" magazine, a music
industry news publication,
eventually ascending the
ranks to become the senior
vice president of marketing.
In 1996-99, "Source" mag-
azine listed Mr. Leigh as one
of the 30 most influential

From page Al
in a $5 million class-action
lawsuit filed last week with
the U.S. District Court.
The value was arbitrarily
set to meet the minimum
claim value required to
place the case under the
federal court's jurisdiction,
attorneys said.


After production, as
many as 3,500 luxury GM-
made SUVs, including Sub-
urbans and Escalades,
were stored at the port of
Veracruz, Mexico, and,
according to the claim,
incurred corrosive damage
from salt-soaked air,
which, attorneys say, was
exacerbated by seasonal
storms.
"I'm an individual cho-


sen by large law firm to ini-
tiate and lead a class action
suit against General
Motors," said Mr. Knoth.
When asked how the firm
found out about the dam-
age and located Mr. Knoth,
his lawyer, David Buckner,
said, "We've gotten a lot of
information from a lot of
sources."
The attorney pointed to a
2005 case involving a South


Carolina car dealer who
contended that GM pres-
sured him into buying cars
that had sustained damage
similar to the camouflaged
corrosion on Mr. Knoth's
Avalanche.
According to his allega-
tions, GM officials forbade
him from alerting cus-
tomers.
The lawsuit was report-
edly settled last summer

for an unnamed amount.
"(There are) certain
SUVs that are made in
(GM's) plants in Mexico.
They let- these vehicles out
in the open air and the salt
got onto them. They had to
replace parts and repaint
them, and when the vehi-
cles arrived, the dealer
noticed it, and sued them,"
Mr. Knoth said, recounting
the South Carolina case.
Mr. Buckner described
the Veracruz port as "one of
the most corrosive envi-
ronments inteworld." iHe
said ocea n saf the 'caus-
tic agent, and'tsf'effect is'
magnified by heavy storms,
which caked the vehicles in
brine.
"The issue is that these
vehicles suffered damage
(of which) GM was well
aware," said Mr. Buckner.
"They repainted the vehi-
clesi nd replaced the
chriomeparts. GM didn't
disclose that. They had an
obligation to tell people
about it.
"It just makes sense. If
you went into a dealership
and compared two vehi-
cles, and you knew one had
been through the ringer,


would you pay the same
price for it as the pristine
vehicle?" he asked.
Several GM media rela-
tions employees were con-.
tacted, including those in
corporate affairs, but calls
were npt returned by press
time.
Mr. Buckner also pointed
to insurance claims GM
filed on the damaged vehi-
cles, ranging from minor
damage to $10,000 restora-
tions. He added that while
his firm is still investigat-
ing the details of the case,
preliminary findings sug-
gest that all SUVs with less
than $1,000 damage were
delivered to dealerships'
and sold at regular prices.
The majority of the vehi-
cles with more than $1,000
in repairs were sold at auc-
tion.
These figures are subject
to change upon further
investigation, he warned,
but the attorney estimatedi1
the average claimed dam-
age of auctioned vehicles
to be $9,000.
Mr. Buckner, a Harvard
graduate and former assis-
tant U.S. attorney, is accus-
tomed to handling high-
profile cases.
His role as a prosecutor
in United States v. Gerardo
Hernandez, also known at
the "Cuban spies" case,
garnered widespread
attention In the trial, Mr.
Buckner helped convict
several Cuban defendants
of conspiracy to commit
murder and espionage.
Mr. Buckner joined his
Miami law firm in April
2006. He said he's not sure
whether the claims against
GM will be settled out of
court.
When asked why the firm
sought him out to initiate
the case, the Mr. Knoth
said, "They found me. They
selected me, how and why
I'm not sure. (It may be
because) I'm a busifiess-
man. I have good acumen
and I can't be flustered on
the stand."

Water
From page Al


line just as a backup, said
village manager Jimmy
Knight.
Although village staff
discovered during the per-
mit renewal process with
SFWMD that, according to
Florida statutes, munici-
palities must use reclaimed
water in place of higher
quality water for irrigation
purposes, unless they show
that it is not environmen-
tally, economically or tech-
nically feasible, they had
already decided to use gray
water.
Since the water restric-
tions, which went into
effect on Jan. 15, do not
apply to gray water, the cil-
lage can use it as often as
needed to keep the golf
course and other areas in
shape during the drought,
he said.
The lack of rainfall and


low water levels in area
lakes have led the South
Florida Water Management
District officials to put
modified phase III restric-
tions into place. The modi-
fied restrictions mean that
residents can only water
their lawns once a week and
golf courses, such as the
Jack Nicklaus-designed
course at the North Palm
Beach Country Club, .have
to reduce their allotted
water usage almost in half.
Golf courses have been
given an allotted water
usage per month, which
varies at each course. The
modified phase III restric-
tions calls for all golf cours-
es in the affected areas to
decrease their usage by 45
percent.
In addition to that per-
centage, each course is
rated on a scale of 1-10 and


additional cuts are
demanded with each rat-
ing, said Mi. Knight.
The North Palm Beach
course currently uses any-
where between 400,000 and
700,000 gallons a day, and
will have to cut back to
about 57,000 gallons a day,
he said.
Although the village's
agreement with Seacoast
calls for less than the usual
amount, it is much better
than 57,000 gallons. The
agreement calls for the util-
ity to deliver a maximum of
300,000 gallons of gray
water each day.
The landscape will have
to stand its' once a week
shower in the meantime.
In order to implement
the use of Seacoast's
reclaimed water, the village
has to dredge a 12-inch line
and provide for 10 pounds


of square inch pressure to
go through it, said Mr.
Knight.
It will take Seacoast
about 18 hours to get the
300,000 gallons to its
respective areas in North
Palm Beach, he said.
The line, could be opera-
tional within 30 to 45 days
of obtaining all the
required permits, said Mr.
Knight.
Village staff has made an
agreement with Seacoast
that the utility will not
charge North Palm Beach
for the water until it is
available to them.
When it is, the village will
pay $1,937 a month to Sea-
coast for the utility provid-
ing the water to North Palm
Beach, and an additional
25 cents per 1,000 gallons
of water used out of the
allotted 3S00,000, he added.

Birthday
From page Al
ian army. He dated a count-
ess, went from teaching vio-
lin to becoming a lucrative
stockbroker and served in
World War II, among other
things.
He was born and raised in
Holyoke, Mass., by parents
who came from Italy when
they were teenagers. When it
was time to go to college, Mr.
DelDotto went to Italy and
majored in music at the Uni-
versity of Padua, taking class-
es in French and Italian,
wrote his daughter Dianne
Anderson in an e-mail.
In talking to him, one could
swear those were probably
what he deems the best years
of his life.
"It's a beautiful place to
live," said Mr. DelDotto.
While he was there, he
became "close friends" with
the Countess .of Taramo,
Maria Garzezzi, and to this
day has a letter she wrote to
him that is so fragile it might


fall apart if he tries to take it
out and read it.
Mr. DelDotto did not want
to leave Italy,- but his father
insisted that he come home,
he said.
He played and taught vio-
lin, among other skills.
"I'd take them swimming
afterwards. I taught them
how to swim because I used
to like swimming and just six
strokes can save a life some-
day," he said.
Some of the birthday cards
he received this year were
from his students, said Ms.
Budd.
While he "was very happy
teaching the violin," his
mother had other dreams for
him.
"My mother said, why don't
you make some money?"
said Mr. DelDotto.
And that he did. He got into
the stock market and started
by going door-to-door selling
stocks, before eventually
opening his own business,
said Ms. Budd.
He later worked for A.G.
Edwards into his 90s, said Ms.


Anderson.
In between, he was drafted
to serve in World War II. Mr.
DelDotto was 36 when he
joined the SeaBees after the
attack on Pearl Harbor. He
served four years in the South
Pacific, three of which were
on Johnston Island.
"They made me a censor. I
censored all the mail that left
the island," said Mr. DelDot-
.to.
If letters mentioned any-
thing regarding the military
they were censored, he said.
"The fellows all loved me
because I never cut it out. At
other posts, they would just
cut the parts out, and I could-
n't imagine what wives or
mothers thought when they
got a letter like that, so I
would give (the letters back)
and tell them to rewrite
them," said Mr. DelDotto. '
"What a job that was. This
guy was writing to his wife
and girlfriend at the same
time and had put the wife's
letter in the girlfriend's enve-
lope and (vice versa) and I
caught it (before they were

sent out)," he chuckles.
"The man was the master of
arms on the island, and he
said I could have anything I
wanted for catching the mis-
take. I said I want to stay in
bed in the morning, and he
said anytime. Blackmail is a
wonderful thing."
Mr. DelDotto married Ruth
Botwell and they had Dianne
before the Second World War.
When he returned the family
moved to Fitziwilliam, N. H.,
where the DelDotto's raised
her, along with sister Joanne,
and brother David, said Ms.
Anderson.
"All three are good children,
thank goodness. If you don't
have good children, you've
got nothing," said Mr. DelDot-
to.
His children helped him
after Mrs. DelDotto died in
her 70s.
"She was a wonderful per-
son, but she didn't live very
long," said Mr. DelDotto.
He had moved to Rockport,
Mass., in 1980 to be closer to
Ms. Anderson, she said.
That's where he met Ms.
Budd, on a Sunday walk in
1990, she said.
The two share a love of trav-
eling, history and animals. Mr.
DelDotto has taken Ms. Budd
and his children on trips to
Italy and other parts of
Europe, she said.
"My traveling days are over,
but I've been all over. the
world," said Mr. DelDotto.
But he hasn't forgotten the
language from his trips
abroad.
"Chentani, chentani (100,
100). It doesn't seem possi-
ble," he said, indicating he
still remembers Italian.
When asked his advice for
others hoping to live a long
life he said, "First of all, find a
good companion. If you live
with somebody, live with
somebody that you love and
enjoy being with. (And) if you
love animals, you're gonna be
happy."
"I think one of the secrets
to his longevity is the interest
he has always taken in the
world around him," said Ms.
Anderson. "He and my
mother were active partici-
pants in our New Hampshire
town, serving on the schQol
board, (as) the trustees of the
library, supporting music
organizations, etc. He would
write to his senators and rep-

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2008


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(561) 575-5140
or e-mail pbnews@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


Unprofessional?
You obviously did zero research or you would know
Pete Rose was known as Charlie Hustle, not Mr. Hustle.
You look unprofessional as a writer when you do not do
your research. Your Jupiter slogans were racist, childish
and thoughtless. Pure whining.

Racist?
Since the great American pastime, after baseball, is
finding fault with our president, will we be called
"racists" if we criticize President Obama?'

Write those letters
Kudos to the person who wrote about his Social Securi-
ty problems (Jan. 11 edition). Who can blame him for
being mad? I hope he writes to all his legislators, every
one. We need to write to every person who can be of help
when we face these kinds of issues. Otherwise, how are
our leaders to know?
I love Hometown News.

Regarding windmills
I am absolutely appalled at the time, research and even
discussion of wind power and turbines anywhere in
Florida. This is a hurricane belt. Imagine 20 huge pro-
pellers in 120-mile per hour winds zipping across Flori-
da, scouring it to the ground. All of the million-dollar
projects would be shattered and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Winds are unreliable and erratic. This is the sunshine
state. Whatever happened to solar power?

Sex education doesn't work
I would like to answer this sex education that seems to
be so popular now. I say phooey to that.
I'm a World War II veteran. Just prior to our departure
to the Philippines, we were given sex education, which
included pictures of men with venereal diseases, and it
was sickening. I'm sure it was more detailed than what
the schools are doing; There were plenty of prostitutes
around Army camps, especially on weekends, but do you
think it helped? I'll answer, no. The protection the Army
issued, did that help? No. The soldiers tossed the educa-
tion aside. This reminds me of an alcoholic in a liquor
store learning how to drink responsibly. It doesn't work.
Period.

Mickey Mouse could do a better job
God help America. When President Bush was re elected
I was very disappointed. Anyone could do a better job,
even Mickey Mouse. I swore to vote against all Republi-

cans, and I'm a registered Republican. Even now I watch
the debates and feel Mickey Mouse could do a better job.
God help us.

There is help for Social Security claims
I am writing this after reading the rant "Social Security
benefits taking long."
I want to tell the writer, and anyone else who finds
himself or herself in the predicament in which a Social
Security disability claim is dragging on and on, that there
is recourse. Every U.S. senator and representative has on
staff caseworkers whose only job is to expedite claims
constituents file with federal agencies such as Social
Security and the Veterans Association.
I know this because I was one of those caseworkers for
a U.S. senator from Massachusetts and handled hun-
dreds of disability cases. I strongly suggest that the
writer of the Jan. 11 rant contact the local office of his
U.S. senator, explain his situation and ask for interces-
sion in his case.
These services, are free to taxpayers, no matter their
party, and are there there to be used. I sosympathize with him
and wish he had sought the help of his elected represen-
tative when he first filed his claim.

More on Social Security claims
This is for the man who wrote about his fruitless, sad
war with Social Security disability.
In our family, there is a similar situation. It's not from
systemic illness. A simple case of heartburn started it.
My daughter's doctor once prescribed Reglan, a known
problem drug, supposedly for stomach problems (read
the side effects). The doctor forgot to do his homework,
and did not prescribe the prophylactic Benedryl to stop
the danger of side effects along with it. Now she is faced
with a lifetime of the side effect and has the movement
disorder, Dystonia because of that'doctor's lack of knowl-
edge.


She has tried eight different lawyers (to sue the drug
manufacturer), all of whom agreed she had a major case.
Social Security turned her down twice already when she
tried to get help. She is faced with the same problem as
your other correspondent: no money. Driving is danger-
ous because she can't turn her head because of spasms,
and yet she has to work to live.
Luckily, generous friends have covered most of her
expenses. I help when I can, but I am a 79-year-old
widow. Thank God for them.
She perseveres, brave girl that she is, and does what
she is able to do. I have no faith or respect for the zom-
bie-esque judges and lawyers in this state. I have not met
one, not one that I respect for fairness, intelligence or
compassion. If your case won't bring them a million in
fees, you'll fall through the cracks. One judge at her hear-
ing wouldn't even let her speak. That is not a hearing. Her
hopes were dashed again. He never spoke up for her, a
rookie afraid of the judge's wrath. She went home crying
again.
There's a sad movie plot in here somewhere. Where's
Michael Moore? Who can help these people? Oprah? Is
that their last hope? If President Bush never became self-
proclaimed emperor and if we had no Iraq war would the
billions of dollars have helped some people here at home
instead, where charity should begin?

More on proper English
I enjoyed one of the paper's reader's who pointed out
those using "seen" and "saw" improperly. I'm certainly no
English major, but cringe when words are mispro-
nounced or used improperly. Some are now accepted
speech. Ax instead of ask is cultural, but it doesn't end
there.
. Common usage has developed for it to be acceptable in
using "me and John" instead of "John and I." I also
believe envelope should be pronounced with an "e" and
not an "o". Old fashioned, but envelope is derived from
enveloping (closing).


Letters


The quagmire of Iraq
To the editor:
I could say, as a disclaimer, that all these disconcerting things
regarding Iraq about to be mentioned, serve as cliches, but
that would be even more disconcerting.
Everywhere and almost everyone, criticizes the bleak situa-
tion in Iraq. Indeed, the barrage of criticism hasn't abated with
time; nay, it's increased and will continue to increase.
Soldiers volunteer with the understanding that the com-
mander-in-chief, a.k.a. the president, is looking out for their
best interests. These days, I wonder if that is true.
Disregarding, the justice of why we initially decided to take
control over Iraq, which is to say, irrelevant now, we must now
concentrate on the justice in the present war, and a contin-
gency plan for ending the war, i.e. pulling our troops out of
Iraq.
Certainly congress, as well as the president and the rest of the
world, contend that the situation in Iraq is a quagmire.
Every month, about 100 American troops die in Iraq. But
instead of gradually decreasing our influence in the country
(the logic is that it'll allow the Iraqi people to be reliant on
themselves), we have gradually increased our influence. The
president uses jargon such as, "we must stay the course" and
"win at all costs," saying that failure in Iraq would mean a less
secure world for all of us.
And, when Democrats as well as some Republicans merely


mention that we should gradually pull troops out of Iraq, say-
ing not enough progress has been made, the president brands
them as betraying the troops and being soft on national securi-
ty. Both sides bicker, and still we remain in Iraq.
A disconcerting question is this: are we exacerbating the sit-
uation in Iraq the longer we "stay the course?"
If yes, then what's the solution? Moreover, what are the con-
sequences if we were to pull out of Iraq, presently? Sen. Hillary
Clinton, received a tirade from the pentagon after she wrote a
letter demanding to know the contingency plan for Iraq. The
pentagon said, "How dare her."
Moreover, Iraq has become a digression from many impor-
tant domestic issues such as health care, Social Security global
warmnning, immigration and the economy.
Conversely, many trivial issues (they don't even deserve the
formality associated with the word issues), such as Tom Cruise
and Brad Pitt's love affairs, O.J. Simpson's new trial, Paris Hilton
and Britney Spears, etc., have served as digressions to the war
in Iraq. The media is to blame for this.
Moreover, again, is that the so-called war in Iraq is a mis-
nomer, because it isn't actually a war. America never declared
war on Iraq, we just invaded Iraq. America isn't fighting the
Iraqi people directly, America is fighting terrorism.
Also, the president has been accused of curtailing the liber-
ties of American citizens. These are liberties under the Consti-
tution dealing with the First and Fourth Amendments. This
monitoring or "spying" on American citizens deals with e-
mails, wire tapping, monitoring places of religious devotion,


such as mosques, library records, etc.
But perhaps most disconcerting is that our soldiers aren't
given sufficient monetary reimbursement for their injuries.
Just the other day, CNN did a piece entitled, "The War
Against the VA." The piece chronicled three veterans. One had
most of his face disfigured from being burned in a routine
drive-by of the Baghdad perimeter. Another got her legs blown
off flying in a Black Hawk and another got his arm blown off.
I was shocked to hear thatthese veterans aren't being treated
properly by the
Veterans Administration. It truly saddens me, because the sol-
diers fight in the war, risk their lives for their country, with the
assumption that if anything happens, their country will take
care of them.
Some people say that we'll be in Iraq forever. Some people
defend the president by saying that being in Iraq was the right
thing to do because it meant doing, and not being dormant,
highlighting Sept. 11. But the fact is, soon we'll have a new pres-
ident, and many wonder whether anything will change.
Winning in Iraq ostensibly meant having a self-sustaining
Iraq in terms of a democratically elected government that can
enforce its laws, and police its country.
Unfortunately, one thing is certain: we haven't won in Iraq,
therefore, the quagmire of Iraq will remain.

Chamber doesn't support


property tax amendment


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

PALM BEACH GARDENS
- On Jan. 10, the Northern
Palm Beach County Cham-
ber of Commerce board of
directors passed an
amendment stating that
while it supports changes
in tax guidelines to create a
more equitable tax policy
for local businesses, it does


not support the proposed
property tax constitutional
amendment 1 scheduled
for a vote on Jan.29.
The NPBCCC is a not-
for-profit organization
.with more than 1,400 busi-
ness members. It focuses
on the development and
retention of businesses by
taking an active role in
issues that affect the prof-


itability of local compa-
nies, protecting and
improving the quality of
life for residents and,
above all, providing superi-
or services and resources
to their members.
For more information
about the resolution or to
read it in its entirety, con-
tact Tim Regan at (561)
691-8501.


Tax
From page Al


of Cities' stance on property
tax reform on the ballot.
The league, which is com-
prised of almost all the
state's 412 municipalities, is
against the suggested reform
because it does not solve the
problem of inequities with
property taxes and it does
not prohibit the state from
issuing un-funded man-
dates.
"Our primary reason for
opposing this amendment is
unintended consequences.
We feel it does not provide
the best for Floridians and
makes an unfair tax system
even more unfair. Plus, once
we put this in the constitu-
tion, we're never going to get
it out and future generations
are going to wonder what we
were thinking," said Sharon
Berrain, public affairs direc-
tor for the league.
The constitutional change
on the ballot doubles the
current Save Our Homes
homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000, less
school taxes, and puts a 10
percent cap on property
assessments for non-home-
steaded owners.
It also offers portability,
which means homeowners
can transfer their home-
stead benefits to a new
home if they move.
In addition, the constitu-
tional change would include
a $25,000 tangible personal
property exemption for
small businesses. Tangible
personal *property includes
the desks and file cabinets


businesses have in their
offices.
While all these elements
may look good on the sur-
face, there are underlying
consequences if the reform
passes, which requires60
percent of the vote. The con-
sequences are what the
league and Village council
are trying to make residents
aware of prior to the vote.
The legislature already
required municipalities to
rollback their property tax
rates, s to 2005-06 levels for
2007-08 budgets.
In addition, the legislature
tacked on additional reduc-
tions, between 1 and 9 per-
cent, for each municipality,
depending on what its
spending habits had been
over the past five years.
In addition to the revenue
cap, the Village of North
Palm Beach was required to
reduce its property tax rate
by 9 percent.
With the mandatory tax
revenue cap and the roll-
back, that essentially
equates to somewhere
around a 14 percent or a
$1.6 million reduction in
revenue, Village manager
Jimmy Knight told Home-
town News for an article
about tax reform published
on June 29.
Although the village
withstood the reduction
well, if the tax reform
amendment passes,
changes will be evident.
Specific changes are
unknown at this point, but


it's one reason the league
and village are opposed to it,
said Vice Mayor Bill Manuel.
"Just by doubling the
homestead exemption there
will be (an estimated) cut of
$800,000 in revenue for
North Palm Beach," he said.
The actual cut cannot be
known, since there is no way
to know who will move out
or into the village and
whether or not they have
portability, he added.
With less revenue, munic-
ipalities might have to
reduce services to residents.
"People don't want to give
up services," said Mr.
Manuel.
What's the trade-off for
fewer services?
People would save about
67 cents per day, or about
$250 a year, he said.
Trimmed budgets will also
make it more difficult for
municipalities to handle un-
funded mandates, which is
another reason the league
and Village Council are
against it.
"(Unfunded mandates are
issued when) the state pass-
es some legislation that says
all municipalities will pro-
vide some service, but the
state doesn't fund the cities
and it cost the cities money,"
said Mr. Knight.
Ultimately, the village and
other municipalities will
have to work with the will of
the people, but they want
residents to get the whole
picture before casting their
ballots.


There's no 'devil in the


details' of Jan. 29 amendment


M essengers often
flavor their mes-
sages. We're hearing
opinions from all quarters
regarding the amendment.
A few flavors floating
around: "I heard it changes
Save Our Homes; I'm con-
fused about the amendment;
What's being offered; I think
the Legislature should have
done more; I'm waiting for
the Budget and Tax Reform
Commission to make their
recommendations; I'm going
to wait on the 2008 Legisla-
ture to make this a better fix; I
don't like property taxes. I
want to see another way of
funding local government
like the fair tax. I'm not voting
for this."
What's being offered in the
amendment?
1. Save Our Homes
portability will allow moving
without penalty.
The first question I hear is:
"How does it affect Save Our
Homes?" Have no doubt or
fear about the sanctity or
future of SOH. The Jan. 29
amendment does not change
Save Our Homes, it makes it
better for homeowners. The
amendment lets you keep the
"capped value" you've
accrued as long as you reside
in Florida, even if you move
to another home. Transport-
ing the capped value from
one home to another is called
portability.
For example:
Now your current home
just (market) value =
$300,000
Your assessed value
(because ofSOH) = $125,000
($175,000) SOH benefit
Less $25,000 regular
homestead exemption
$25,000, equals taxable value
$100,000; times millage rate
of 19.2871 mills x
,019287071, equals amount
of property taxes: $1,928.7
Your SOH benefit value is
$300,000-$125,000 = $175,000
You buy another home
worth more (buy up with
portability)
Your new home just
(market) value = $375,000
Portability from old home

is previous SOH benefit
$175,000
Beginning assessed value

$25,000 regular homestead
exemption
$25,000, equals taxable xalue
$175,000 times millage rate of

of property taxes $3,375.24,
versus $375,000- $25,000 =
$350,000 x.019287071 =
$6,750.47 without portability
You buy another home
worth less (buy down with
portability)
Your new home just
(market) value = $200,000
Portability percent from
old home ($175,000/$300,000
= 58.33 percent) = $116,660
Beginning assessed value,
new home ($200,000 -
$116,660) = $83,340; less
$25,000 regular homestead
exemption, equals taxable
value $58,34, times millage
rate of 19.2871 mills
x.019287071, equals amount
of property taxes
$1,125.21; versus $200,000-
$25,000 = $175,000 x
.019287071= $3,375.24
without portability
Portability saved these new
homeowners significant
money in the first year and
every year thereafter. This
will enable thousands of
Floridians to move without
tremendous property tax
penalty.
The additional $25,000


exemption' detailed below
would add another $295 in
savings to those illustrated
above. To see and use this
process in detail, go-to
www.volusia/property, then
to new portability and
exemption calculator.
In both examples above,
unless the January amend-
ment passes, these home-
steaded property owners will
pay twice the amount of
taxes.
Portability alone, in my
opinion, is enough reason for
Florida voters to pass the Jan.
29 amendment.
2. EveryVolusia home-
steader will receive a $295
tax reduction, due to the
additional $25,000 exemp-
tion (in addition to portabili-
ty).
Portability provides
tremendous potential benefit
to those who want to move.
The amendment also
provides an additional $295
(using Volusia millages) to
those who plan to stay in
their existing homes. This is
the average tax savings from
the additional $25,000,
homestead exemption,
which will be available if the
amendment passes. It
provides a positive benefit to
resident homeowners,
regardless of their desire to
re-locate.
3.Al non-homesteaded
properties (all other proper-
ties) will receive a SOH-like
value cap of 10 percent, per
year.
The amendment provides
SOH-like protection to all
noni-homestead property
owners. Future value
increases are limited to 10

run this column again. The
current president of the
Senate, Ken Pruitt, formed a
senate investigation commit-
tee to investigate the dealer
fee. The results were sent to
the Florida Legislature.
In a nutshell, the recom-
mendation is that the
legislature ban or at least cap
dealer fees as they have in
other states. If you want to
read the entire text of the
senate's recommendation,
you can visit the Web site
www.EarlStewart.com and
choose "Results of Florida
Senate Dealer Fee Investiga-
tion."
By the way, dealer fees are
just as rampant as they were
in 2006 and dealers are
actually increasing the
amount they charge.
Pick up a copy of any
South Florida newspaper
and find illegal ads by dealers
who do not include their
dealer fees in their advertised
prices.
Those who do comply with
the law include the price in
just one car (disclosed
covertly by an alpha-
numeric code, which means
this stock number is the only
one available that price).
Come in for the advertised
car and it has "already been
sold, but they have another
one just like it." What they
don't tell you is that their
dealer fee can now legally be
added to advertised price,
because it isn't the same car
that was advertised.
After reading this column,
please contact your state
legislator and voice your
opinion about this "dealer
license to steal."
I have invited Sen. Atwater
to appear on my radio talk
show on Feb. 8. Sen. Atwater
is to be the next president of
the senate, the most power-
ful politician in Tallahassee.
We need to convince him to
pass legislation banning or at.
least capping dealer fees.
I expect Sen. Atwater will
be able to come on my show,
WSVU, SeaviewAM 960. I've
spoken to his assistant,
Sherry, several times. In our
last conversation, she gave
me the date of Feb. 8. There
was one conflict. He had an
appointment at 9:30 a.m.
and my show is from 9 to 10
a.m. But she was optimistic it
could be moved. If he can't
come in, she said he will call
in. You can e-mail Sen.

lot of changes in the way we
dealers sell cars and the
expectations of our cus-
tomers. My remarks in this
column are made sincerely
and with a positive intent
toward you and your
customers. I am not trying to
tell you how to run your
business; I am suggesting a
change that will reward both
you and your customers.
Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of the cars he sells,
variously referred to as a
"dealer fee," "documentary
fee," "dealer prep fee," etc.
This extra charge is printed
on your buyer's orders and is
programmed into your
computers. It has been made
illegal in many states,
including California. You
charge this fee to every
customer and it ranges from
a few hundred dollars to
nearly $1,000. Florida law -,
requires that if you charge a
dealer fee to any customer,
you must charge all cus-
tomers. It also requires that
you disclose, in writing on
the buyer's order, that this
charge represents profittto
the dealer. Florida law also,
requires that you include this
fee.in all advertised prices.
You don't always do this and
you get around the lawby
limitingthe numberofM
advertised vehiclesasfew as
oniie).
The argument that itear
from most car dealers when I
raise this issue is that the
dealer fee is fully disclosed to
the buyer on his buyer's
order. But most car buyers
are totally unaware that they
are paying this. Who reads all
of the voluminous paper-
work associated with buying
a car? The few who notice it
assume it is an "official" fee
such as a state sales tax or
license and registrationifee.
Those'few astute buyers who
do question the fee are told
that your dealership must
charge this fee on every car,
which would not be true if

Massage center offers

affordable rates,

flexible hours


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer
PALM BEACH. GARDENS
- Tension builds over a
busy week, and, swamped
with work or overwhelmed
by family obligations, most
people don't have the time
to relax.
At Massage Envy, man-
agement offers extended
hours to accommodate
working men and women.
At the Northlake Boulevard
massage center, therapists
are available until 10 p.m.,
offering reasonably-priced
sessions in a chic, polished
setting.
"Our hours of operation
are unusual," said Gregg
King, owner of the fran-
chise. "Normally, massage
places aren't open that late
or on weekends. A lot more
people can get massages
this way. They can get off
work and come over for a
session."
Massage therapists at the
Palm Beach Gardens loca-
tion are, all skilled and
trained to meet and exceed
state requirements. Among
the 25 masseuses at the
facility, average experience
is about five years, includ-


ing therapists who have
sharpened their dexterity
for 15 to 20 years.
Before beginning a ses-
sion, clients discuss with
their therapist a variety of
massage options.
A Swedish massage, the
style that most often comes
to mind, relaxes the whole
body by "rubbing the mus-
cles with long gliding
strokes in the direction of
blood returning to the
heart," Massage Envy's Web
site said.
Additional techniques
include circular pressure
applied by the hands and
palms, firm kneading, per-
cussion-like tapping, bend-
ing and stretching.
According to the Web site,
the treatment increases
flexibility and circulation
while easing tension.
Deep-tissue massage is
similar to Swedish massage,
but is used to target knots
and release chronic muscle
tension.
"Other benefits include
reducing inflammation and
helping eliminate scar tis-
sue. The focus is on the
deepest layers of muscle tis-

sue, tendons and fascia
(the protective layer sur-
rounding muscles, bones
and joints)," the Web site
said.
While the techniques
might be slightly uncom-
fortable, generating 'sore-
ness that lasts for a few
days, the client will even-
tually experience relax-
ation and pain relief..
The center also offers
sports massages, cranial
sacral massages (a gentle
head and neck massage)
and trigger-point mas-
sages, specifically
designed to alleviate a
source of the pain through
cycles of isolated pressure
and release.
After the initial consult,
it's time to slather up and
unwind. One-hour and
two-hour sessions are
available with a quick 30-
minute massage offered as
an option to Massage Envy
members.
"In the modern world,
everybody's got more
stress. Our member base is
continually growing. We've
grown every month since
we've opened," said Mr.


King.
According to statistics
cited on the company's
Web site, 22 percent of
Americans have had a
massage in the past year.
Anticipating this trend, the
founders of Massage Envy,
a 600-store nationwide
chain, found a clever way
to commodify relaxation,
forging a business concept
that "combines the
ancient art of massage
with modern business sys-
tems, service and pricing
strategies."
In 2007, approximately
200 new Massage Envy
centers opened around
the country.
The facility on Northlake
Boulevard, opened last
June, was the seventh
Massage Envy location in
Palm Beach County.
Memberships start at
$59 a month, and include
a full massage session, and
access to low $39 rates
thereafter.

From page Al
60 percent majority, would
give residents the right to
vote on all changes to com-
prehensive amendment
plans or "comp-plans" (e.g.
zoning changes from resi-
dential to commercial).
"There's too much power
in city and county commis-
sions. Three votes and the
landscape is changed forever.
If all these changes are so
great for the community, let
the people have the final say,"
said Lesley Blackner, a West
Palm Beach attorney and
founder of Florida Home-
town Democracy.
Some politicians fear that if
passed, the Hometown
Democracy Amendment will
create a serious hindrance to
local economic growth.
Ordering a public referen-
dum on every comp-plan
change would stall better-
ments to the city, said Palm
Beach Gardens Councilman
Eric Jablin.
"I fear that if (the Home-
town Democracy item is
placed on the ballot) that
people will embrace it, even
with 60 percent rule," said the
councilman. "It will paralyze
the state."
"(The proponents of the
petition) say this is a way to
curtail runaway developer-
controlled growth. That's a
hyperbolic statement that
frankly isn't true. It's propa-
ganda," he said.
"When people are con-
fronted with that they tend to
go along. The ballot language
is good, but voters just hear
the buzz words, and they
don't foresee the unintended
consequences."
As an example, Council-


man Jablin pointed to the
bioscience overlay district
that was enacted last year to
accommodate the Scripps
Research Institute's move to
Jupiter.
The biomedical research
company's Abacoa campus is
currently under construction,
and, without a timely land
designation to authorize the
project, plans may have fallen
through, Councilman Jablin
said.
If the Hometown Democ-
racy amendment was in
effect at the time, the land
designation change would
have been moved to a public
referendum that might have
pushed back construction for
months and. precipitated the
deal's collapse.
Hometown Democracy's
founder sees it another way.
Ms. Blackner said that if
making Palm Beach Gardens
a bioscience mecca was in
the public's interest, then it
should have been decided by
the residents, even if the
process caused significant
delays.
"The point is, nobody is
entitled to a plan change in
the first place. If they get it, it's
a political gift."
According to Ms. Blackner,
under the original terms of
the state's 1984 Growth Man-
agement Act, comp-plan
changes were set for recon-
sideration every seven years,
unless a project was pro-
posed that served the public
interest.
* "If commissioners are try-
ing to serve public interest,
they should be rejecting most
comp-plan changes. The
intention of the Growth Man-
agement Act was to reconsid-
er the future land use maps
every seven years. Plans don't
mean anything if they're con-
stantly changed," she said.


Over the years, the state
legislature has diminished
the efficacy of the act, Ms.
Blackner said, leading to
developer-controlled growth.
"They hand out plan
changes like Halloween
candy," she said.
The trend can be distilled
down to the belief that most
growth is good growth.
"How are we going to
reform a system that is not
accountable to the elec-
torate?" she asked. "We'll give
the electorate the final say.
Councilman Jablin
expressed concern that alter-
ing the state's constitution is
too drastic a measure. It
would cement into the politi-
cal process a system of gov-
ernment by plebiscite, the
economic consequences of
which are yet to be seen.
"The cost involved is
unimaginable. We're talking
about shutting down all
growth in Florida," he said. "If
(the Growth -Management
Act) is not enough for the 'no-
growthers,' let's make efforts
to reform that act. Change
that law rather than enacting
a constitutional amend-
ment."
"If someone buys apiece of
land, he or she expects to be
able to develop it in a reason-
able manner. If it's zoned a
specific way, and they need to
change this or that to make it
better for the community,
why can't they do it?" he
asked.
When faced with a public
referendum, developers
might bail on the project. If
they don't, and the proposed
comp-plan reaches referen-,
dum and is rejected by the
public, there might be litiga-
tion, said Councilman Jablin.

From page A8
you were to make the
decision to not charge the
dealer fee to anyone. These
astute buyers are also told
that all other car dealers
charge similar fees. This is
almost true, but, as you
know, my dealership does
not.
The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the
cost of the car and your profit
in such a manner that is not
noticed by your customer.
This is just plain wrong.
Dealers will'admit this to
me in private conversations
and some will admit that
they have considered
eliminating the fee as I have,
but are afraid of the drastic
effect to their bottom line. By
being able to count on an
extra $895 in profit that the
customer is not aware of or
believes is an "official fee,"
you can actually quote a
price below cost and end up
making a profit. Or, if the
price you quote the cus-
tomer does pay you a nice
profit, you can increase that
profit by several hundred
dollars.
This "extra, unseen" profit
is even better for you,
because you don't pay your
salesmen a commission on
it. That's being unfair to your
employees as well as your
customers.
When the rare, astute
buyer objects to the dealer
fee, the law permits you to
decrease the quoted price of
the car by the amount of the
dealer fee. This would have
the same net effect of;
removing it. The salesman
often won't permit this


because he will lose his
commission (typically 25
percent) on the decrease in
his commissionable gross
profit.
If you don't know me, I
should tell you that I don't
profess to be some "holier
than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect.
Although I never did
anything illegal, when I look
at some of my advertising
and sales tactics 20 plus
years ago and more, I am not
always proud. But I have
evolved as my customers
have evolyedi Mycstomers'
expectations, level'bf
education and sophistication
are much higher today. Your
customers are no different.
As I began treating my
customers and employees,
better, I discovered that they
began treating me better. Yes,
I used to charge a dealer fee
($495) and when I stopped
charging it a few years ago it
was scary. But I did it
because I could no longer, in
good conscience, mislead
my customers. Just because
everybody else was doing the
same thing did not make it
right.
Now here is the good news.
My profit per car did drop by
about the amount of the
dealer fee when I stopped
charging it. But when my
customers realized that I was
now giving them a fair shake
and quoting the complete
out-the-door price with no
"surprises" the word spread.
My volume began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a
few hundred dollars less per
car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was, and am,
selling a lot of your former
customers. My bottom line is
far better than it was when I


was charging a dealer fee.
You can do the same
Why am I writing this
letter? I'm not going to tell
you that I think of myself as
the new marshal that has
come to "clean up Dodge."
In fact, I am well aware
that this letter is to some
extent self-serving. Lots of
.people will read this letter
and learn why they should
buy a car from me, not-you.
And, I'm also aware that
most dealers who read this
will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the
courage to follow my lead.
But maybe you will be the
exception.
If you have any interest in
following my lead, call me
anytime. I don't have a

Recovery
From page Al
try.
Last August, with 18 years of
sobriety behind him, Mr,
Leigh moved to Palm Beach
Gardens to escape the pomp
and smog of the Los Angeles
scene.
When he arrived, he elected
to share his story and help
others who've suffered
through addiction by creating
a live radio forum for dis-
cussing recovery.
"I have a number of friends
of mine who take our recovery
program very seriously. I see
these celebrities using the
recovery programs as a
springboard for their PR cam-
paigns," Mr. Leigh said,
These people aren't trying to
get sober, they're trying to
save their movies."
Seeing the value of these
recovery programs dimin-
ished by high-profile exploita-
tion prompted Mr. Leigh to
pitch a radio show concept
that focused on real sobriety
solutions.
"Recovery Radio" was


picked up byWJNO and, since
Its first broadcast, has gained
popularity among local resi-
dents and families suffering
through drug and alcohol
abuse.
'"The callers are the stars, I
gut celebrities (on the show),
uit these are people who are
very serious about their recov-
ery. To whatever degree they
can, they'll utilize their
celebrity to carry the message
of recovery in the most sin-
cere way," said Mr. Leigh.
Recovery Radio hosted its
18th show last week. The
project is still in its infancy,
Mr. Leigh said, and while the
focus of on-airdis ussion has
been alcoholism, future top-
ics will include other addictive
behaviors such as gambling.
"On Super Bowl Sunda,
we're going to do a whole
show on gambling. There's a
tremendous uptick of people
who have gambling addic-
tions," said Mr. Leigh.
He pointed out that up to 40
percent of all inquiries at the
Singer Island addiction recov-
ery center CA.R.E. are related
to gambling.
"It's not our. show. That's

developers yield the precise
effect Ms. Blackner sought to
create. The burden of litigat-
ing a particular case should
be on builders, she said.
"We're going to see a lot
fewer proposals for comp-
plan changes. When there is a
plan change, and somebody
wants to go through the trou-
ble of getting one, there will
be more coverage in the
media. People will realize it's
an important political issue,"
Ms. Blackner said.
Public awareness will be
crucial to the success of
Hometown Democracy, if it
passes, and it's chance for
success is uncertain, Ms.
Blackner said.
Public referendums would
require voters to research
proposed projects to some
degree of depth.
But she insists the public's
lack of participation in the
politics of growth does not
stem from apathy, but from a
feeling of powerlessness.

how we look at it," said Mr.
Leigh. "It belongs to the audi-
ence, the people who need
recovery, who are in it, and the
family members and friends
of the aforementioned. We
will touch on anything related
to addiction recovery."
For the 23-year radio Indus-
try veteran, talking to the
audience adds a new dimen-
sion to his own recovery.
Engaging with the audience
and relating chronicles of
addiction creates a support
group environment that ben-
efits both listeners and hosts,
he said.
Every Sunday morning, Mr.
Leigh teams up with his close
friends, "Indian" Bob and
"Dangerous" Debbie, whose
surnames remain anony-
mous, to host the show.
Together they form a quirky
trio of ex-boozers and party
animals on a mission to prove
that sobriety isn't as boring as
one might presume.
TheirWeb site, RecoveryRa-
dioLive.com, reads on arrival:
"Let go and let God. Live and
let live."

Smokey Joe's Cafe rocks its

with "advancing rock 'n

Mr. Leiber, the son of
Jewish immigrants from
Poland, grew up near Bal-

raised in Queens, learned
the basics of blues and
boogie-woogie from black
kids at summer camp.
Born in 1933, the pair

Flush away fluid retention


If you're feeling puffy,
bloated and swollen,
you're experiencing fluid
retention, medically known
as "edema."
Fluid retention occurs in
different parts of the body
for different reasons; gravity
is one of them. Standing in
one place too long or sitting
with legs dangling can
restrict circulation and
cause swelling in the
extremities. Fluid then leaks
out of the capillaries and is;'
stored in puffed-up tissues,
instead of returning to the
circulation. Even your
eyeballs can swell, making it
uncomfortable to wear
contact lenses.
Edema can be a symptom
of disease. Its many causes
include: allergies, anemia,
under-active adrenal glands,
kidney, liver .or thyroid
problems, lung impairment,
excess sodium, potassium
deficiency, circulatory
problems, over-acidity"and
severe protein deficiency.
Pitting edema exists when
pressure on swollen areas
leaves a pit-like depression, .
which may require medical
attention.
Alcohol and diuretic
drinks, such as tea and
coffee, cause water and
sodium losses. Adrenal
glands need adequate
amounts of sodium to
function properly. Someone
who craves salt and per-
spires heavily and urinates
frequently, may have and
adrenal imbalance.
Sugar and sodium affect
fluid retention. Eating at
restaurants that use MSG or
excessive sodium may result
in potassium loss. Hidden
sugar is found with names
ending in the suffix ose:
fructose, dextrose, lactose,
sucrose and maltose. Also
look for malted barley and
corn syrup.
Fluid retention is a
common side effect of birth

control pills. They deplete
the body of B vitamins,
especially vitamin B6, which
has a natural diuretic
function. Oral contracep-
tives contain estrogen. T'oo
much estrogen causes the
body to hold fluid. Fiber
binds the estrogen and
helps move it out of the
system. Studies confirm that
women have fewer PMS
symptoms when they eat
high-fiber, low-fat diets.
: Chronic stress also raises
estrogen levels, depletes
progesterone and causes
fluid retention in fingers,
ankles and the abdomen.
SPhysician Barbara
,Edelstein, author of "The
Woman Doctor's Medical
Guide forWomen," suggests
taking vitamin B6 for fluid
retention because it blocks
the estrogen/sodium
relationship.
In addition, vitamin C has
some diuretic effect when
combined with B6, and
helps reduce capillary
permeability.
Certain foods have known
diuretic properties, includ-
ing: cucumbers, alfalfa,
parsley, apples, watercress,
asparagus and cranberries.
Some people reduce fluid
buildup by eating only
watermelon or drinking
fresh juices for a few days a
month(not suitable for
diabetics or hypoglycemics).


A German regulatory
agency, similar to the U.S.
Food andDrugAdministra-
tion, recognizes various
herbs for fluid retention,
such as horsetail'.and
juniper berries, as well as
dandelion. Use as directed
on the label.
If you are taking medica-
tions, consult with your
health care practitioner
before taking herbs. Better

Prescription diuretic'
drugs rid the body of excess
water, but oftenflush out'
essenialmineralsas well.
Over-the-counter diuretics
and laxatives used for
weight loss also create
mineral imbalances and
may cause cramping.
"Of all natural diuretics,
perhaps the best is water,"
writes nutrition counselor
Maggie Greenwood Rob-
bins. "When you are
dehydrated, your body
excretes less water and
bloating can set in."
Your body uses water
most effectively when you
drink small amounts more
often. If you are drinking too
much water at one time and
then rushing to the bath-
room during the next half
hour, you may be flushing
away the water instead of
flushing away the bloat.

Try using clams, pasta for


a healthy, delicious meal


T he TV news recently
ran a story about a
Sman who found a
pearl in a clam appetizer at
a local restaurant.
It was big news, a perfectly
round purple pearl.
Several years ago, my
friend, Pat and her husband,
both avid clammers, gave me
a whole batch of fresh cherry
stone clams. My husband,
Bill, shucked them using the
old clam knife my dear Uncle
Vinnie gave me when I was a
teenager.
Pat thought she was only
giving me clams. What she
didn't know was she was also
giving me a pearl. You read
right, I found a pearl in a
clam. It was oval shaped. Was
it worth anything? No, it had
a dark spot and wasn't worth
a penny.
According to the news
report, finding a purple pearl
in a clam is 2 million to one. I
ask you, why was his purple
and perfect and worth
thousands of dollars, while
mine was scarred and
worthless?
It just doesn't seem fair!
Speaking about clams, how
about serving the best
linguini and clams you've
ever tasted? Imagine making
it in less time than it takes to
cook the pasta. I prefer to use
spaghetti, but the choice is
yours. Try whole-wheat
pasta, which is delicious and
good for you. Serve it with a
wonderful spinach dish for a
healthy, meatless meal.
Parsley is something you
should use in almost every-
thingyou make; it's loaded
with vitamins, adds great
color and a very subtle taste.
Besides, it makes people
think you really know what
ycdu're doing. I always
ndital 4Eparsly
because it has more flavor
than the curly kind, but either
can be used and the nutrients
are the same. Dried is fine,
just use a little less than fresh.
Enjoy. See you next week.
Note to readers: If you e-
mailed me between Jan. 13-
16, please sendit again. I had
trouble with my server.

WHITE CLAM SAUCE
Serves 3-4
I prefer canned baby
clams; they never get tough
like minced or chopped or
fresh clams. My recipe
contains one 7-ounce can of

mushrooms stems and
pieces. Even ifyou don'
mushrooms, I suggest y
the sauce with them. Si
they're chopped, you'll
know they're in there, I
promise. They also add
vitamins and make the
look very impressive, th
look like chopped clam
(Gosh, look at how mar
clams she used!).
I will give you the reci
white (my favorite) and
clam sauce.
1/4 cup extra virgin (
oil
1 (10 ounce) can bab
clams
1 (7 ounce) can
mushrooms stems ai
pieces
1 cup bottled clam ju
4 large cloves garlic
6 or 7 sprigs fresh Ital
Parsley, chopped or 1
tablespoon dried
1/4 teaspoon oregan
1/2 teaspoon black
pepper
Few shakes crushed r
pepper, optional
3/4 pound linguini or
spaghetti


Cook pasta in boiling
salted water. While water is
heating, prepare sauce. Peel
and chop garlic, reserving
half.
Note: The longer garlic
cooks, the more flavor it
loses. Therefore, we will start
our sauce with half the garlic
and add the rest at the end
to get the flavor we want.
Lightly brown garlic in oil,
remove from heat. Add clam
juice, juice from clams,
liquid from mushrooms,
e oregano and the peppers.
ru Return to heat and bring
to a boil. Coarsely chop
mushrooms; add to sauce.
Cover; cook over low heat.
t like When pasta is almost
you try done add clams, remaining
nce garlic and parsley to the
never sauce. Continue cooking
until pasta is done. Drain,
lots of top with sauce, and dinner
sauce is ready.

From page B1
Libra-Sept 23-Oct.22
Don't worry too much about
the small stuff. Stay focused
on the bigger picture. You
know what you want. You are
honest. You have a strong
conscience. You are very wise
and just. Who could ask for
any finer qualities? Continue
to make wise decisions as
you go through life and your
strong spirit will prevail and
help you realize your greatest
dreams.

Scorpio-Od.23-Nov.21
Your foresight and determi-
nation are just two of your
strongest values. You are
what heart is all about. You
have one of the best. Your
wonderful sense of humanity
and humility will always
guide you in the right direc-
tion. It's hard to keep up with
you. Others around you mar-
vel at how you do it. You
keep everybody on their toes.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec.21
You have many new opportu-
nities looming. Your deep
spiritual growth and surren-
der is like a magic wand


working to increase fun, posi-
tive and profitable ideas in
your life. Plan a little ahead
so you don't have to always
perform at the last minute.
The reason you procrastinate
on some important things is
because of focusing on too
many that aren't that impor-
tant.

Capricon-Dec. 22-an. 19
Venus and Jupiter in Capri-
corn give you a distinct edge
in motivation, joy and expan-
siveness. No matter what
happens around you, the key
is to keep focused and cen-
tered at the hub of your own
wheel of life; kind of like the
way the sun is the center of
our solar system. Just keep a
lighter touch. Live and let live.
Have a little fun and watch
life pour out its rewards to
you.

Aquarius-Jan.20-Feb. 18
This is your time of the year
to shine in the zodiac. Also
with Mercury in Aquarius, this
gives you mental clarity. Now
is the time to move full steam
ahead on your greatest
dreams. This is your age, you
know. You have all the gifts
and credentials to ,excel at
every divinely inspired project

you have. We are waiting.
Let's see what you can do.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
You must get back to your
creative projects. You have
,been focusing on family and
work for a long time. This is
good, but you are important,
too. Here's the order: put
spirit first, yourself second,
family third and friends
fourth. If you don't take care
of you, no one else will be
able to either. Keep yourself
charged and psyched. It's too
early in the year to burn out
now.

Beach sunrise not to be missed


Have you ever walked
the beach at sunrise?
About a week ago, I was
fishing on Juno Beach at
6:30 a.m. and bumped into
a woman walking her dog.
We shared pleasantries and
struck up a conversation
about the ensuing sunrise.
We both agreed that anyone
who does not experience
daybreak, at least once a
week, is truly missing out on
one of the best things in life.
My personal ritual at
sunrise usually involves a
moment of silence, deep
breaths and unbelievable
anticipation about the day
to come. Experience it for
yourself sometime this
week. With sunrise after 7
a.m. it is the most conven-
ient time of year to enjoy
one of nature's true won-
ders.
Offshore report:
Due to sketchy reports, it
may be a week where you
have to play the weather by
ear. The preliminary


ROB FIELDING
Fishing columnist


forecast has the wind and
seas subsiding by Friday,
but that is heavily depend-
ent on several low-pressure
systems moving at consis-
tent speeds.
My advice: plan your trip
offshore two days ahead of
time and monitor NOAA for
up-to-the-minute weather
forecasts. Once you get out
there, it is a great time for
the sailfish enthusiast. The


Silver Sailfish Derby in Palm
Beach released 210 sailfish
proving that the migration
is in full effect. Rigged
ballyhoo, Ilander lures and
live goggle eye are the baits
of choice. Blackfin tuna and
wahoo are also in the same
waters as the sailfish. The
bite is concentrated near
the 120-foot mark right now,
but don't be afraid to go out
deeper. Keep your eyes
open for birds feeding on
the surface.
Inshore report:
January is large-mouth
bass month. This time of
year, the bass are frisky due
to the cooler temperatures.
Lake Okeechobee is the hot
spot. Rubber worms worked
over ledges and in deep
holes produce the best
bites. Remember to watch
the barometer as bass feed
more heavily on a rising
barometer.
For the individual looking
for a consistent shore side
bite this month, you cannot


go wrong with bluefish.
They are loaded on the
beaches at night and offer
nonstop action as the
schools migrate from north
to south. Frozen Spanish
sardines work very well, but
any cut bait is fine.
. There is also a limited
pompano bite available on
sand fleas, frozen shrimp and
on pompano jigs off the
beach. Concentrate on
fishing at first light; as the bite
turns offby 9 a.m. The jetty
and pier anglers are reporting
the bluefish, jacks, pompano
and an occasional mackerel.
Tight lines, crystal clear
waters and sunny days to all.
Is there something more
you would like to see in this
article? Send me an e-mail
with your suggestions.

Golfers welcome to participate


in ultimate challenge


How would you like to
play golf for $1
million in prize
money?
The Ultimate Game at
PGAWest Stadium Course is
a tournament where 64 two-
person teams compete in a
match-play format with the
ultimate winning team
taking home the ultimate
winning prize.
Of course, the chance to


win such a rich prize comes
with a rich entry fee.
Unfortunately, most golfers
do not have or cannot find
sponsors with deep enough
pockets to put up the
$45,000 to $60,000 team
entry fee. In just a few
weeks, however, you will
have the opportunity to cut
that entry fee to just $10,000.
Organizers of the Ultimate
Game will stage the South-
east Play-In Tournament
Feb. 18-20 at the Fazio
Course at Johnathan's
Landing in Jupiter. To enter,
teams must pay $10,000, an
amount they will win back
with two match wins. A third
win earns the team a berth
into the finale at the PGA
West Stadium Course at the
La Quinta Resort & Club in
southern California.
At the finale, March 6-11,
teams win around $25,000
for each match victory, with
the ultimate champions
taking home $1 million,
composed entirely of entry

Students

donate

thousands

of books

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

NORTH PALM BEACH -
Students at Pleasant City Ele-
mentary School in West Palm
Beach received-thousands of
books on Jan. 16 thanks to
Austin Rosenthal, a 12-year-
old who attends The Ben-
jamin School in North Palm
Beach.
Austin made it his mission
to collect new and "gently
used" books for the school's
media center as part of his
bar mitzvah activities at Tem-
ple Israel inWest Palm Beach.
The seventh grader and his
classmates have been collect-
ing and sorting books for
weeks. They delivered
approximately 3,000 books to
the elementary school.
"I want to make a differ-
ence in people's lives and to
try to make the world the best
we can make it," said Austin.
"One of the things the tem-
ple likes you to do is some
community-based project,"
said Felice Rosenthal, Austin's
mom. "We looked for ideas
for months before deciding
on this project."
While searching the Web,
they stumbled onto Book-
Ends (www.bookends.org), a
nonprofit organization based
in Southern California that
encourages kids to help kids
by donating books.
Northern Trust Bank also
helped out with the project.
For more information, con-
tact Andre Mogilevsky, assis-
tant principal, Pleasant City
Elementary School at (561)

Stammer
From page B6


ki and friends were watching
a PGA Tour event in which
one of the pros appeared
pressured to sink a 6-foot
putt.
"That's not pressure. If he
finishes second, who cares?
His money isn't on the line.
Pressure is when you have to
sink a 6-footer to win a $100
Nassau, and it's your $100,"
Bartkowski's friend said.
From there, the concept of
golfers playing for their own
money was born.
In 2005, the first Big Stakes










The Mackney Family of North
Palm Beach has recently suffered
a profound tragedy that would be
considered incomprehensible to
any of their friends, family, and
local community. Following the
joyous birth of their 4th child,
Dylan, on August 9, 2007,
Desirae was diagnosed with
stage 4 colon cancer. The cancer
is in her colon, both lungs and
liver, as well as masses of tumors
pressing on her trachea and
esophagus. At the age of 31,
Desirae's diagnosis is terminal.
As part of a community-wide
effort to support the Mackney
Family, Jonathon T's salon is
having a CUT-A-THON to raise
money to offset the medical and
other bills resulting from this
tragedy.
