Summer is back! And for those of you that don' it i, iil. i from my last
summer letter... I love summer! It just makes me go back in time when
school was over and we had all the time in the world to enjoy life. Those were
the days my friends... we thought they would never end. But they do and now
as an adult most of us don't have all summer off. At least we live in a beach
resort community that even if you are working hard you feel as if on vacation.
i Well, some days I don't, but most of the time I do. I guess this is because I en-
joy what I am doing and because I am intrinsically a happy person. I have to
thank my father for that. He always taught me to see the glass half full and no
matter what to be positive. "Your mind is a computer, if you put thing in your
mind it will happen," he used to tell me all the time. I think he should claim
to be the author of the book "The Secret".
In this June/July issue we recognize three Palmas' fathers whose sons have
made their life in Palmas: Joaqufn Soler and his four sons; Dr. Amed B i itJ and his two sons; and Miguel Guiot
and his son. We also acknowledge a young man that graduates this year and has been working in Tapas at Chez
Daniel as a waiter during all his years as an engineering student, Gadiel Prez.
On the other hand, we have this month the well awaited inauguration of our spectacular new catholic church
Capilla Sagrada Familia, a big event and a historical moment. The church is really a work of art. You have to visit
it and as Antonio Roig would say, "There is still a lot to do and money to be raised to finish all the details and pay
the loan". A

service trend in community pharmacies
our local One Stop Pharmacy at Econo

scription to your door at Palmas del Mar.
"We place a strong emphasis on per-
sonal service and community commit-
ment. Our policy is to provide our clients
with the best service, advice, and support
at a good price. People nowadays have
very complicated schedules with their
work, family and other responsibilities
to be waiting at a pharmacy for their
prescription. People want to do more in
less time. If they can do the groceries
and have their prescription ready at the
same time that's wonderful," said Merce
L6pez, owner of One Stop Pharmacy a
pharmacist for more than 30 years. "For
example, for a mother with a sick kid it is
a nightmare to be waiting in a pharmacy
for a prescription. Same with older people
that don't' or can't drive any more, or for
a person alone who is sick," added Ismael
Ferrer, Merce's husband and who runs
the business with her.
One Stop Prescription Pharmacy also

other hand, the pharmacy is located in-
side the Econo Supermarket, which al-

do your shopping while your medicine is

"With three pharmacists on staff we
take great pride in providing important
medical information to our patients," said
Merce and explained that all prescrip-

It was 7:00 PM and my husband and I
were at the Beach Bohfo. The night was
dark and the sea was silver when we sud-
denly felt the sand sparkling at us. Then...
something came out of the water. It was
really big! We realized it was a Tinglar
or Leatherback turtle. She was coming
out of the water looking for the place to
lay her eggs. This experience lasted until
11:46 PM and it was spectacular, sensa-
tional, and absolutely extraordinary. She
started to go around with her front legs;
suddenly we noticed how with her back
legs she was digging an immense hole in
the sand to lay her eggs. After this ini-
tial ceremony the Tinglar started to lay
her eggs without any hurry. Then she
started to cover and compact the sand
very carefully. Protecting that way the
future generation is something you have
to see to believe! It was just ii. !....Ih..,
the size of the Tinglar, the depth of the
nest, and the spectacle of seeing her lay
her eggs was just hallucinating. Then...
as she came she left, discrete and in si-
lence to the immensity of the sea that
waited for her to come back. She simply
disappeared, leaving us astonished and
without words. It was a gift of God, we
were not looking for her, she came to
us...we were just at the right place at the
right time. Thinking back, she was so
considerate with her offspring, she laid
her eggs very close to the beach so when
they hatch, they could quickly reach
their real home, the ocean. We feel
blessed! For us it was more than a privi-
lege, it was a spectacular experience, a
communion with nature... an unforget-
table night at Palmas del Mar. A

u | A well balanced community requires tolerance, understanding and patience
from one another. It provides room for differing views and beliefs, or life styles,
while allowing those who differ, work for the common goal; each one must give
a little. Our community is that kind of a neighborhood. It is large, yet tight
enough to feel we are all one big family. It allows for dissension of opinions, yet
it let us be heard loud and strong as a single voice. Not too many communities
can do that. Only those united in common purpose.
As in all big families, there is always disparaging and converging view points
and even sources of friction. But at the end, family bonds always prevail. Simi-
larly, in our community there will always be differences among neighbors and
friends on how we approach situations or who we choose to lead our battles.
But here again, at the end the common good prevails and keeps us united in
common purpose. It is then for the common good that we should always try to
temper our spirits and attitudes.
As I begin a new term as member of your Board of Directors, and as President
of your Association for another year, I pledge to you to work with everyone in
putting behind anything that may have made us drift apart. I commit to you
not to waste energy on nonsense and ego-surviving battles regardless of who
they come from but rather to focus in bringing us all together for the same cause
or objective. There are too many things that unite us and just a few, worth
ignoring, that pulls us apart.
Ours is a strong and vibrant community. Let's keep it that way and enjoy it

a e y Rules in Palmas del Mar
The Hurricane Season is, once more, upon us. Now is a good
time to begin reviewing your preparation and elaborating your
own contingency plan. As in years past, PHA will be set to
go with its emergency planning and response teams to handle
preparations in general, damage assessment, road cleaning and
security. You should review insurance policies, have videos/
photos of your property, recheck your emergency equipment
and identify a safe location for your family. Go over the inven-
tory of your emergency kit: cash, medicines, gasoline, food-stuff,
water, flashlight, batteries, radios, infant necessities, camera and
film, pet supplies, toiletries, matches, etc. Don't forget to keep
your telephone fully charged and the emergency numbers
handy. The official Civil Defense Shelter for Palmas del Mar is
the Luciano Rios School on Road 923 at Buena Vista Ward.
It is imperative that you remain at home during the first
hours after the hurricane to allow Emergency Response Teams
to perform their functions so later on you may be able to move
around in a safe manner. Palmas security will be exercising strict
control of movement of people and vehicular traffic throughout
Palmas. Only Emergency Response Vehicles will be permitted to
circulate initially. Access to Palmas will be limited to residents
and official vehicles. Security checkpoints will be established
to exercise control of major residential and development areas.
Only properly authorized personnel will be allowed through these
points. This is done for your own security and safety as well as
for the protection of the property.
Your cooperation, patience and understanding in the event
of a hurricane is a must. Don't wait to the last minute to get
ready now is the best time!!
To safeguard and preserve the harmony and quality of life in
Palmas del Mar, construction rules have been established by the
Architectural Review Board (ARB). These construction rules
are mostly implemented and enforced by the ARB and apply
to all construction work in Palmas del Mar.
The ARB makes sure that our peace and tranquility is not per-
turbed in hours that are not designated for construction activity,
this is why that one of the most important rules is construction
hours. Normally no construction can start before 7:00 a.m. or
continue after 5:00 p.m. during a weekday (! I.,i i., to Friday).
On Saturday only specific work is permitted, except that no
work can start before 8:00 a.m. and past 5:00 p.m. Construc-
tion activity permitted Saturday is work that does not generate
noise, such as plaster, installation of tiles, electrical work, paint
work and the similar. Heavy machinery such as diggers, electric
generators, or other work that generates noise is not permitted.
On Sunday construction activity is not permitted.
Special permits are granted by the Palmas del Mar Archi-
tectural Review Board on special circumstances to continue
work after 5:00 p.m. or before 7:00 a.m. on weekdays or on
Sunday. These are mostly granted to construction sites that
are away from occupied residential areas and hotels usually in
undeveloped areas. It is very important to always check with
your regime or condominium for their specific construction
rules before starting any construction work, also verify with the
ARB for construction endorsement on all exterior construc-
tions. Both the ARB as well as the Homeowners Association
are always on the lookout for our peace and tranquility. For
instance, other requirements are installation of safety construc-
tion fencing. Damage to green areas or other neighbor areas
is not permitted. Most important, construction employees are
required to strictly observe good conduct while in Palmas del
Mar. For a complete list of construction rules call the ARB at
telephone number (787) 285-2279.
MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION
The Palmas del Mar Homeowners Association (PHA) and
the Palmas del Mar Architectural Review Board (ARB) are
proud to serve the Palmas del Mar community in maintaining
and safeguarding the architectural character and the beauty of
its pristine surroundings. As such, the Palmas del Mar commu-
nity is internationally recognized as the model for architectural
uniqueness in Puerto Rico.
(continued on next page)
(continued from previous page)
To accomplish these objectives, all of the
Palmas del Mar residents are required to
comply with the Palmas del Mar Covenants
and restrictions and well as the ARB Design
Codes. Recently, the ARB has been perform-
ing inspections to verify compliance with the
Design Codes sections regarding mechanical
equipment. These codes mandate that all
mechanical equipment be concealed from

placed on the ground, or with parapets or
if they are placed on rooftops. Do not get
caught of guard, if your property has an
air conditioning compressor (rooftop or on
the ground), electrical generator or other
mechanical equipment that can be seen
from public view including the golf course or
higher properties, it must be concealed.
The ARB is more than happy to offer you
alternatives to conceal existing mechanical
equipment. A list of appropriate plants has
been put in place by our landscape architects
for this purpose. We will be happy to deliver
it to you upon request. Just call the ARB
offices at (787) 285-2279 for the said list or
for suggestions on how to conceal mechani-
cal equipment. A

His name is Roberto Mel6ndez Beaz. He was born in Ceiba, lives
in Humacao and has vast experience in the investigative field. He
has been a policeman for 13 years with important positions such as
Detective for the CIC for six years and investigative agent for the
Drug and Narcotics division of the Fajardo area among others. Mele-
ndez comes from a very united family of four of which two are police-
men. "My brother is a special detective in the Baltimore Police," said
Melendez and told me that since he was a kid he told his mother that
he wanted to be a private detective. "The area of Investigation is my
passion, and that I do well," said Melendez a very affable person and
a very experienced man in the area
"I want Palmas residents to feel
secure and enjoy their Paradise.
I will work hard in combination
with St. James Security Co. to as-
sure that Palmas remains one of
the most secure communities in
Puerto Rico," he said and added "I
will go further and say that Palmas
is the most secure community in
Puerto Rico. My goal is to improve
our levels of security and I know
I am going to achieve it with the
help of the residents and the strong back up of the PHA administra-
Working with Tony Maldonado, coordination is already in prog-
ress to upgrade the PHA Security Committee into a into a Security
Community Council to broad its scope of work and tighten its rela-
tionship with the police. The Council will be made up of people
from the community to work hand in hand with the local police, St
James and myself in order to become more alert and create an effec-
tive community security network."
Melendez told us that his phone, 787-717-6861 is available for any
resident that could need him or want to share with him any concern
or any suspicious movement. The call can be anonymous.
Palmas Homeowners welcomes Roberto Melendez and urges the
community to be alert and call Palmas Security 787-852-7775 if you
see anything suspicious. We have more that 3,000 thousand pair of
eyes in Palmas; if we keep them open, it would be like having 6,000
thousand security cameras moving around. Connect them to Pal-

Last month, the PHA Annual Meet-
ing was held with a significant turn out
from the community. The agenda in-
cluded, among others things, a complete
and comprehensive report from our PHA
President, Mr. Julio Bague. He reported
on all of last year's achievements
and gave a comprehensive over-
view of the work performed by
the Board of Directors for this
In addition, Mr. Servando
Diaz, PHA Treasurer, gave a com-
plete report of the financial situ-
ation of PHA and the economic
outlook, including the 2009 year
projections. PDMPI, President,
Mr. Jaime Morgan Stubbe, also
gave a briefing on the status of
the different developments and
future projects of Palmas del Mar.
The swearing-in of the new directors also
took place as part of the agenda as well as
the yearly award presentations. You can
read all these reports in full by accessing
the PHA webpage- www.palmaspha.com
Among the highlights of the President's
Report, were the significant security ini-
tiatives taking place in our community.
The installation of Phase I of the perim-
eter Interactive Camera Surveillance Sys-
tem has proven to be a very effective tool
in our crime prevention program.
Also, the President informed us of the
acquisition of a new cleaning device for
the beach that sifts the sand so that the
sea-weed and the beach debris are re-
moved, while the sand stays in place. This
new method cleans the beach while help-
ing to avoid shoreline erosion.
Mr. Bagud also reported on the plans
for the reconstruction and improvements
for the new PHA Park (the Marbella Park)
that is schedule to start January 2010.
Another major initiative and achieve-
ment of this past year was the commitment
of Liberty Cable to make accessible to our
community PHA TV Station (channel
77) soon to be launched. This initiative is
possible thanks to the sponsorship of Lib-
erty Cable who has generously donated
this channel to our community and has
provided PHA with the necessary soft-
ware to carry out the programming at no
cost to PHA. Along with the Electronic
Billboard, the Live & Life Magazine and
the PHA Web-site, Channel 77 will defi-
nitely be another important communica-
tion tool for our community.
"Let me assure you all, that this Board
and the PHA Executive Director will
stay focused on matters that are most
relevant to our community. That our
programs and investment will always be
oriented toward improving our quality of
life, enhancing the values of our proper-
ties, the preservation and improvement of
the amenities that this community offers
you, as well as your personal safety and
security," finished Julio Bague his

BRONZ-GLOW ANTI CORROSIVE TREATMENT...
SAVE ENERGY...SAVE MONEY
Do you know that corrosion makes
your AC equipment work twice as hard,
consuming unnecessary energy?
Corrosion also can cost homeowners
thousands of dollars, not only from ener-
gy consumption, but also from costly re-
pairs and premature equipment replace-
ment. For all of us that lives so close to
the ocean this is more dramatic and you
don't need to be an expert to see it hap-
pens before your eyes. In salt-laden envi-
ronments, studies demonstrated that the
corrosion process in aluminum equip-
ment begins as early as 30 days after the
installation, and is evidenced by gray-
ish particles in the equipment surface.
This deterioration of aluminum makes
the equipment less capable of transmit-
ting heat and increases operating costs.
In the first two years of installed, an AC
equipment can experiment as much as
55% operational efficiency loss. Besides
this efficiency loss, corrosion makes the
compressor work twice as hard, increas-
ing energy consumption.
Within the first
wo years of installation,
an AC equipment can
eriment as much as 55%
rationall efficiency loss.
THE GOOD NEWS
There is an efficient way of protecting
our equipment from the corrosion and
save energy, that at the end is money.
Bronz-Glow anti-corrosive treatments
saves up to 20% on your equipment's
We are talking of Bronz-Glow anti-
corrosive treatments, an exclusive prod-
uct from Aireko Services and
Installations. Bronz-Glow, established
over 25 years ago, specializes in anti-cor-
rosive products and treatments for AC
and refrigeration equipment. This line
of anti-corrosive products is the only
one that has the Energy Star Partner
approval sign, given that its application
helps reduce costs and promotes energy
savings. Bronz-Glow products must be
applied by a certified trained applicator,
to ensure its proper application and war-
ranty. Aireko Services and Installations
is the exclusive certified applicator for
Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Anti-Corrosive products are an in-
vestment, and not an expense. The
treatment pays itself by avoiding repairs
and replacements, and by providing a
more energy-efficient equipment.

and 30 year Palmas .--- --
She decided to make a
One was to take a
cruise for a
week, which she did!
"Man, it's hurts", is how Capitan Bill Burleson .. .. I the loss of,
who was been his best friend, wife of 50 years and the mother of his
four children. "From the moment we met we both knew they were
made for each other. It was on a Sunday afternoon, back in 1959, at
a Club in Vieques; we talked and talked until they through us out
of the place.", Bill recalls and added "You know, I married her three
times without a divorce!" That's because, the first time, the Marine
Court never accepted our marriage through the Vieques justice of
the peace, so they has to marry a second time. Then in 1964, when
their oldest son was going to the school of Notradame, the school
made them married by the Catholic Church....sot hey married again
for third time!
In 1980, they came to live at Palmas and bought a house in Villa
France where he still lives. "It's so hard now to get home and know
that she is not there anymore.", said Bill with evident pain.
He told me Loyda was an extraordinary woman and a very commit-
ted doctor. She was the Out-Patient Medical Director of the Fajardo
Regional Hospital for many years and later the Medical Director of
the Sub-Regional Hospital in Caguas.
"She was a very dedicated doctor and she always felt she had a
commitment with Puerto Rico. She was aware that she studied her
BA and her medical career with scholarships. Loyda always felt she
was in debt to her country; therefore she loved to serve, Bill told me
and added "She was so good in clinical diagnosis!"
At one point in her sickness, Loyda realized she was going to die, so
she decided to make her bucket list. Two of the top priorities was to
take a cruise for a week, which she did, and to makes Bill mad, which
she also did. How? Taking over of his reclining chair! Good for her!
She died in peace with herself and surrounded by her beloved fam-
ily at the moment of her departure. The Palmas community will miss
her and empathize with her family in this unfortunate loss.

Dr. Ahmed Bajandas is an Anesthesiology, born and raised-
in Humacao. He studied Medicine at the University Of Puerto
Rico School Of Medicine and later did his residency in Anes-
thesiology. After studying medicine he worked for the Navy as
a doctor in Illinois, where Darlin & Hector were born. (Ahmed
was born before they left to Illinois). In 1962 Dr. Bajanda came
back to the Island with his A,.rl.i.!.-i,1...,_ specialty which he
still keeps active. Almost 50 years of experience as an Anesthe-
siology! Then Jeannette, the youngest one, was born and they
were officially done with adding members to the family.
During all these years they have lived in Naguabo, and in San
Juan for almost 11 years. Back in 1970 they lived in a farm in Hu-
macao where Dona Lucy's mother used to have 20 acres of land.
(This is where Sams and the expressway is nowadays located)
"In that land we learned to deal with horses and cows," Ahmed
(son) recalls nostalgically and added that his grandmother made
for him a room in the big house where he spent wonderful years.
After many years he went back to live in the farm already mar-
ried already with Rose. "My grandmother built a house upstairs
and left us her house," he said. Amed & Rose have a 27 old
daughter and owns a medical devices store in Humacao.
Darlene is married with Dr. Chegui Benftez, an ophthalmolo-
gist, and they have three children, all in college. H6ctor is re-
cently married and has a vending machines business but is also
a Captain and a real estate agent. Jeannette is still single.

at 5:00 p.m. with a very rough
sea and arrived to Punta Arenas at 11:00 p.m., we were almost
shipwrecked," remembered Dr. Bajandas. "Another day we were
at Isla Verde in a Hobby Cat regatta and Ahmed (my son) fell
in the water, and when they came back to get him they were
very far away from where he was. Ahmed was hanging from a
buoy for long time before they could get him," recalled Dona
Lucy and they all laughed. "We used to go to
Monkey Island and back from Villa Palmira
in Humacao," added H6ctor. "We as a fam-
ily used to camp a lot around the Island,"
added Ahmed son.
Nowadays they all live in Palmas and share
a lot every Wednesdays. They have four
grandsons and they also share with them
Dr. Bajandas keep's practicing his pro-
fession and goes to work every day and
enjoys what he does. "I go surgery very
well prepared because I take the time to
talk to the patient, get to know him,
find out what he takes (medicines), his
life style, his special conditions if any,
etc.," he told me. Their sons assure me unan-
imously that he is the best at what he does and
I have no doubt. You can tell he has the knowl-
edge and the good heart to make a good and
caring anesthesiology. But most importantly,
they are a beautiful family!

owner), Eileen and Elvita. They all live in Palmas.
Miguel Sr. is originally from Cayey, Elba is from Comerio.
How did they meet? Elba was studying Medical Technology
in Kentucky but Miguel's brother's girlfriend convinced him
that he should meet Elba. The rest is history. They have been
together for fifty two years. At the beginning, when they were
newlyweds, they lived in Rio Piedras, but then they moved to
Venezuela, where Miguel Sr. worked for Tropigas. There they
lived for ten year. Miguel & Eileen were already born and there
they studied elementary school. "When we moved back
to Puerto Rico, Miguel used to speak with a Venezuela
accent," said Elba. In 1967 they moved back to Puerto
Rico and lived for 33 years in San Juan. But in 1979
they bought a villa in Palmas and began com-
ing to Palmas on the weekends. Eventually,
like most of us, they moved permanently
to Palmas. They started staying more
and more. First from Friday to Sundays,
then to Mondays, then from Thursdays
and... then... moved! "I stared ask-
ing myself why I had to go back to
San Juan when I liked it so much
better here!", said Miguel's father.
Miguel has always been an import
merchant and representative for
many manufacturing food produc-
ers of Latin countries.
By the time Miguel and Elba made the deci-
sion of moving full time to Palmas, Miguel Jr.
was already living here. "This was definitely
an important element in our decision," said
Miguel Sr. still works in San Juan but, "I
go to work every day, but when I cross the
Palma's gate I begin thinking I am on vaca-
tion". At the moment Miguel is working as a
S .. . .... i I I. i 'I nI r .. .. ..n ii ... ill..
(with the well known and fantastic director Ms. Pagan). He
lived in San Juan for many years but when he divorced he
moved to Palmas. Since then he has met many people and is
acquainted with the community and the town. Miguel studied
Marketing at the University of Puerto Rico, Turabo Campus.
"At that point in my life I was in search of peace. I wanted to
run away from the noise in San Juan," said Miguel. That was
12 years ago and he is still here, I think for good. Miguel has
two daughters 26 and 22, Michelle & Monique.
I start asking myself why
I have to go
back to San Juan when I like
so much being here!
"I've always been a merchant. I have always worked with
my father in the import business and four years ago I started
Cepage (a small wine cellar at the Four Point Hotel)". Two
years and a half ago Miguel founded The Cellar at Palmanova,
a very successful and cozy wine cellar where Palmas locals and
visitors enjoy good wine, food and good music. "The Cellar is
a place where you can always find a friend and enjoy a good
glass of wine," said Agapito Cosme. Most recently, bohemian
nights every Saturday night have become the favorite place for
those of us who enjoy singing and meeting with friends. A lot
of talents have been discovered recently!
Miguel Sr. and son are a good example of people who comes
to Palmas and will never consider leaving. They are real
"Palmenfos", good people and very hard workers. They are one
of the lucky ones that have the blessing that all their family
lives in Palmas or come almost every weekend, like Eillen &

Joaquin Soler Garcia came to Palmas del Mar directly from
Catalonia in 1977 with his wife Annie Ortega Leyva and four
sons. Even though Catalonia is a coastal city it is very different
from the tropics. But the adaptation, according to Joaquin
and his sons, was not hard. Catalonia is located in the north-
east of Spain and lies on the Mediterranean coast. It borders
France and Andorra in the north, the Mediterranean Sea in
the east, the region of Valencia in the south, and Arag6n in
the west. But...nothing like "the jungle" that was Palmas 32
years ago. At that time Joaquin "Quino" Soler, the oldest of
the Soler Clan, was 10 years old. Today Quino is a realtor and
he's in charge of the sales and administration of Palmanova
Village. Jos6 Soler, the second son, is a Civil Engineer and was
in charge of the Palmanova Village Construction. He serves
as a consultant for important projects such as The US Navy
Radar in Vieques, Ceiba's new airport, the new wing of the
Catalinas Mall, among others. Next in line is Jorge Carlos
Soler, owner of the very renowned granite and marble, Magra-
sol. The youngest of the Soler is Enrique (Kike) Jaime Soler,
who was only 2 years old when they moved to Puerto Rico.
Kike graduated from advertising and works in that area. He is
the youngest and is still single (and available). Take note the
young girls of Palmas! "We use to run free around Pal-
mas, there were no restrictions, no boundaries. Af-
ter school we would go to the beach, to play tennis
or to play around," said Jos6. Jorge Carlos added that
they were a bunch of kids running free around Pal-
mas. He mentioned the Lavernes, the Terrons, the
Cosculluelas, the Casillas, the Garcias, the Diaz,
and the Rivieras, etc. They also mentioned the
famous Sun Fun Hut pool. I don't think there is
anything else from Palmas' past that people miss
as the Sun Fun pool! "It was safe and our parents
knew everything was going to be alright." They all
agree and history proves them right. Today they are all
north-east of Spain at that time. Caribe Canal bought Palmas
and Joaquin Soler became president. Joaquin, who had stud-
ied Economy, together with the Caribe Canal executive, put
together a sales and development plan. At the beginning they
were selling Beach Villa, Club Villas and Harbor Side (Club
Cala). Then, the second stage of the development began sell-
ing individual pieces of land (parcels). They constructed 10 or
12 houses but their first development project was Shell Castle
Club, then San Marcos and San Miguel. Some years later they
sold everything. At that point, when he had decided to go
back to Spain (1985-86), a French group that had bought
some of the land wanted him to become their partner and that
is how Palmanova Plaza was born. "The design was made by a
Spanish architect, Jose Sobrevias and the structural blueprints
by Willie Ramirez, who is today my partner at Palmanova Vil-
lage project. The French asked us, (Willie and me), to buy
them a piece of land with a beautiful view of the Beach Vil-
lage, the palm trees, the ocean and
Vieques. We decided to buy it and
that's how Palmanova Village was
conceived and born.
The Solers are a fam-
ily of entrepreneurs and
adopted children of this
country and definitely of
Palmas del Mar. They
are part of our history.
Actually I suggested
to Joaquin to write a
history book, what I
have included here is
just a brief summary of all the
history he told me. Again,
congratulations for such a
beautiful family! A

Gadiel Perez Vkzquez is his complete
name but we all know him simply as Ga-
diel, the nice waiter at Las Tapas that
is always willing to serve you with a big
shy smile on his face. What most people
don't know is that this sweet young man,
besides being a waiter, has been study-
ing chemical engineering at Mayagtiez
for the last 5 years while working at Las
Tapas Chez Daniel to pay for his ca-
reer. Not an easy task because chemical
engineering is one of the most difficult
branches of engineering that you can
study. "I started working at Las Tapas
by chance because a friend of mine, who
used to work at Las Tapas, had a concert
in San Juan and asked me to cover for
her and Daniel asked me to stay." Since
that day until today he has hardly been
absent to work, Valerie told me. On Fri-
days, after a full day of university work
and a two hour drive from Mayagfiez,
he comes to work with the same good
attitude and ready to serve his clients.
Wow! My daughter, who is also an engi-
neering student, tells every time she sees
him: "I don't know how he does it!" But
he does and has done it for the last five
years. Chapeau!!! I am sure he is going
to go very far in life. Attention you own-
ers of businesses related to the engineer-
ing industry... Gadiel is great candidate!
Gadiel will be looking for a job after this
summer when he will say farewell to Las
Tapas, to all his co-workers, and clients.
We will definitely miss him but it is his
time to fly with his own wings. "After
the summer I am going to take a break,
the one that I haven't taken in all these
years. I am going to take a month to rest.
Right now I have an interior peace that I
didn't have for many years," Gadiel said
Gadiel is from Humacao and with his
two sisters were raised by his mother,
a public school teacher. He graduated
from San Antonio Abad when
he was 18 years old and was
admitted to the University of
Puerto Rico, Mayagtiez Campus.
One of his sisters is also graduat-
ing next year as a social worker
and the other one of Business
In the future Gadiel said he
wants to start a business of his
own but he doesn't know yet in
what area. Actually he is plan-
ning to do another BA in Busi-
ness Administration in the near
future. No wedding yet, or kids,
even though we will like to see
him eventually get married and
have his own children. "But first I
want to travel and for that I need
time and space," he said. But...
maybe cupid has other plans.
From Las Tapas he takes with
him the love of all his co-workers
and his bosses Daniel, Frank, and...
Valerie and Lucette that accord-
ing to him are the staff's sweet-
hearts. "Working at Las Tapas has
also made me improve my culinary
art abilities. I learned to cook ev-
erything that is on the menu," he
claimed and said that in Mayagtiez,
where he lives with two other stu-
dents, he cooks some days. "We
take turns to cook," he said and
I am sure that with the schooling
he's had, he is the best. "I also im-
proved my English and got to know
many different types of people--
some more difficult than others but
I always try to please them all."
"I know he is going to be hard to
said good bye; it's going to be sad
but I will always be in contact with
you all," he said and I am already

MOVIEVFILMED AT PALMAS...
By Lissette Rosado ,
For three days Palmas was the site for
the filming of the movie "One Hot Sum-
mer", a Robert Katz production for the
Life Time Movie Network. "The story
of the movie, directed by Betty Kaplan,
was adapted from a fictional novel of
the same name written by Carolina
Garcia-Aguilera. The script was writ-
ten by Nancy De Los Santos and Gloria
Calder6n Kellett," Rosi Acosta told us--
Production Supervisor of the film.
"Margarita,(Vanesa Marcil) a beau-
tiful Cuban-American lawyer, faces the
greatest dilemma of her life a choice
between her Cuban husband, Ariel
Vanesa Marcil, main female actress as
(John Seda) who is eager to start a fam-
ily at any cost and the "romance" of her
life, Luther who unexpectedly returns
to capture her heart once again. Set
against the backdrop of one hot summer
in the sultry city of Miami, this roman-
tic comedy examines the lives and loves
of a contemporary woman and her two
best friends (Viviana and Anabel) as
they straddle two cultures to navigate
through the dilemmas that are thrown
their way," explained Acosta.
The three main female actresses are
Latin as well as John Seda, a Puerto Ri-
can descendant who lives in Los Ange-
les. John Seda played Selena husband in
the movie "Selena".
This movie represents an investment
of $1.2 million in 16 days to Puerto Rico
and employed around 350 people ( 15
local actors, 200 extras, 100 crew mem-
bers ) Among the local actors Acosta
mentioned were Cordelia Gonzalez y
"This is the fifth Lifetime movie filmed
in Puerto Rico since 2006 thanks to the
incentive Law #362. This incentive put
Puerto Rico on the map as an alterna-
tive for the production of movies," said
Rosi Acosta and added that there are
around 42 states that have approved this
incentive law and Puerto Rico is among
the most competitive. "Being an Ameri-
can territory where we use the same cur-
rency and there is no need for passport
or visas, the trained personnel and being
bilingual make us a very attractive loca-
tion," stated Acosta.
At Palmas we are glad to be part of
"One Hot Summer" will be aired July
26 by the Lifetime channel. Watch for
the Scenes at Margaritas apartment
(supposedly Coconut Grove at Miami).

Our male models, Julio C6sar
Aranguren attends Palmas
Academy and is a very good
student and a soccer super
star. Ricardo, our newly dis-
covered talent, attends San
Ignacio and is a natural in
front of the camera. So much
is so, that his own mother had
no idea how much of a ham
he was. Confession: We dis-
covered Ricardo the day of
the shooting at the Beach
Club when he was playing
ping-pong with his father.

The Last Act... Superbe! Chapeau.
What a beautiful night!
The coqui's quietly singing in
the background, the breeze
gently winding through the
stage...the last play of the
year was sensational! The ef-
forts behind this production,
"The Importance of Being
Earnest", did not go unno-
ticed. The set was amazing,
costumes grand and the tal-
ents of the players unlimited.
Nick Pizarro and Diego
Martinez were exception-
ally enthusiastic as Algernon
and Earnest Worthing. The
ladies of the play, Amy Pen-
nock, Natasha Leyva, Valeria
Aponte, and Andrea Cortez
were all charming and beau-
tiful. Graeme Giltrow, hair
slicked back, looking very
distinguished in his clerical
cloak and cross played the role
of Dr. Chasuble. Merriman
and Lane were played with
gusto by Adrian Rodriguez
and Juan Pablo L6pez.
The seniors can move on
knowing they entertained,
and left a lasting impression
on the younger thespians.
Also, a big, big thank you
to Maritere Cardona, who
spent countless hours helping
the kids prepare and kept the
drama club going this year!
Maritere you will be missed in
the drama club next year. A

Dr. Eric T. Adler, a local Board Certified Facial Plas-
tic Surgeon from San Juan, gave a complete presenta-
tion on the Latest Trends in Rejuvenation and Facial
Plastic Surgery. Dr. Adler first carefully gave a detailed
description of the process of Facial Aging from a Tri-
Dimensional perspective. The Aging Model presented
demonstrated that weathered skin with laxity, loss of
volume and sagging muscles are all to be considered
prior to coming up with a Rejuvenation treatment plan.
Detailed information on latest technology skin care, vol-
ume replacement and the natural ways of lifting sagging
tissues were all explained. Dr. Adler also emphasized the
new Non-Surgical modalities available to improve your
appearance without the need of long and downtime
requiring procedures. Dr. Adler used plenty of Before
and After pictures on actual patients to demonstrate his
talent as a physician and artist. The afternoon ended
with an Injectable treatment session for patients inter-
ested in improving their appearance at the same time.
Look around to see who of us did it.
Dr. Adler has already announced another visit to Pal-
mas for June 15 Limited space is available. RSVP at

so, her husband could pursue a career with Eaton Corporation but it seems
like they have been here forever. They have adapted extremely well and are

C 0 By Julio Bague
It dawned on me one day that the Master Plan .
of Palmas did not consider a central park for the .'
community to meet and share. Yes, to share... to -I,
share each other's visions and thoughts. In other ,:
words, a meeting place for youth and adults where `0
we can talk, laugh and enjoy each other's compa-
ny. A park where one can stroll along and do ones
daily ., 1 -. mixed with exercise stations, or just
plainly enjoy nature's fauna. A park available to
the community day and night. That is, as we know
it in our beautiful island the town's Plaza.
Under the present circumstance I asked myself-
what can we do? We certainly have to be creative
with the resources that we have in Palmas. Thus,
one day walking along the cart path of Candelero
Drive, I realized that this walkway is one of the ,
beautiful spots Palmas offers to owners, residents
and visitors alike. Although at the present time it
cannot be seen due to the outgrowth of undesirable
vegetation, there is a canal running right along side
of th&?'green area that holds the cart path. On the
othot side of the canal, there is the Tropical Forest
of talmas, a Natures Preserve which is home for
an array of different species of birds, specially three
be utiful white ,.. ,..- !_ ....
,Ience, I realized that the vision, the dream, I .
had of a town Plaza could easily be achieved by '
turning the Candelero Drive cart path into a Lineal
Park, Our Town Plaza. A
Rendering & Design concept by Pennock. "

a letter from the north
I met her at the Beach Club, I was with my daughter, she was with hers. She
asked me if I was the editor of the magazine and then she told me she was
a writer who lives in New York part of the year. As you all can imagine I
became a little stressed thinking that my work could be judged by a New York
writer! But, immediately she told me she loves our magazine and the way it
was written. I was so trilled! The rest of the day I floated. Here is the letter
