Sister City delegation from Guatemala visits Coral Gables BY MARIA ROSA HIGGINS FALLON he cities of La Antigua, Guatemala, and Coral Gables share a common thread of historic architecture, tranquil neighborhoods and love for art and culture. That bond was strengthened recently with the visit to Coral Gables by a delegation from the Guatemalan city. Six representatives from the government of La Antigua, including three commissioners, traveled to meet their counterparts in the City Beautiful. During their three-day stay, the delegation visited the Coral Gables Museum, University of Miami, Doctors Hospital, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and Coral Gables City Hall. The Guatemalan visitors paid for their hotel and airfare expenses at no cost to the city. “Our sister city relationship with La Antigua began in 1993 and since then we’ve enjoyed sharing academic, cultural and business opportunities,” said Coral Gables Mayor Don Slesnick. “We are grateful for their friendship.” The delegation also received an official farewell from the Coral Gables Fire Department along with the donation of surplus fire equipment to be used by volunteer Guatemalan firefighters. The City of Coral Gables previously donated a retired fire truck to La Antigua, which is still being used today.

Property Appraiser Pedro J. Garcia, verify a countywide taxable value of $213.8 billion of existing properties, as compared to $245.6 in 2008. The decline was offset by the $8.4 billion in new construction value, which were projects started during the real estate expansion cycle and completed in 2008. These figures directly reflect market value declines throughout Miami-Dade County and confirm a trend, which had been projected in the June 1 estimates issued by the Property Appraiser.

The Inside Story: Interventional Radiology 101 with Julio M. Baquero, M.D.

A

n interventional radiologist is a specialist who uses non-surgical techniques to both diagnose and treat a variety of conditions throughout the body. In interventional radiology, physicians intervene to treat a problem using radiology, such as CT and MRI images. We literally get the inside story of a patient’s condition. “A good example of the diagnostic use of interventional radiology is an angiogram, which lets physicians look inside blood vessels and various organs. Angioplasty — the widening of an obstructed blood vessel — is a common treatment that requires interventional radiology. Aneurysms, uterine fibroids, male infertility and back pain associated with compression fractures are also treated using interventional radiology. “These non-surgical techniques mean less discomfort for patients, as well as shorter recovery times. We routinely perform these procedures at South Miami Heart Center.” — Julio M. Baquero, M.D.. Board-certified vascular & interventional radiologist

The Transportation Trust – Moving Forward The Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust (Transportation Trust) is the oversight board created as part of the half-cent sales surtax and the People’s Transportation Plan approved by the voters of Miami-Dade County in 2002. Since the passage of the Plan there have been significant improvements to our public transportation system and roadways. These include the addition of millions of miles of new bus routes, the purchase of more than 262 new buses and the funding of 21 municipal shuttle bus systems throughout the County — from Coral Gables to Aventura to Hialeah. More than 173,000 senior citizens and veterans ride public transportation for free under the Golden Passport and Patriot Passport programs.

Honorable Anna Ward, Ph.D.

The first leg of the Metrorail system expansion broke ground in May. This $525 million project — the Miami Intermodal Center/Earlington Heights Connector — will bring Metrorail to Miami International Airport. A new fleet of railcars and Metromover cars are also being purchased. In the transportation area, more than 390 miles of roadways have been improved. A new Advanced Traffic Management System that will ease traffic congestion throughout our community is currently being installed. Traffic circles have been constructed and school safety crossing zones have been improved.

There is, however, much yet to be done. There has been great concern over promises made and the ability to fund those projects. The Trust shares these concerns. The Trust is also encouraged and applauds the candor, honesty and quality of the discussion occurring within Miami-Dade County and the community. Recent events and dialogue sponsored by Mayor Carlos Alvarez; Commission Chair Dennis C. Moss; Transit, Infrastructure and Roads Committee Chair Barbara J. Jordan; the entire County Commission and County Manager George M. Burgess are all positive developments.

The Trust currently has three Board positions available. We invite interested members of the community to apply for nomination to the Trust so that you can become part of the solution to our transportation needs.

BY FERNANDA MEDICI The Junior Orange Bowl Committee (JOBC) met on June 6 for its annual Goal’s Conference at the Coral Gables Branch Library. Over fresh coffee and bagels, the enthusiastic volunteers spent their Saturday morning setting goals for the year and summarizing accomplishments the organization has reached during the past 60 years. JOBC president Marti Bueso introduced Mark Trowbridge, CEO and president of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce. He was the mediator, and made sure to express his delight in supporting the JOBC. The conference highlighted five of the JOBC’s 14 different committees and the importance of the economic impact in the community. Each committee is responsible for one aspect of the festival going from golf and tennis to the Royal Court Search and parade. “The Junior Orange Bowl is extremely important to the Coral Gables Community,” Trowbridge said. The JOBC is a non-profit organization, home to the world’s largest international youth sports and arts festival, and conducts more than 14 events from October to January, including the world-famous Junior Orange Bowl Parade. Some of the sporting events attract more than 4,000 people from 90 different countries. Gloria Burns, a past executive director of JOBC, talked about how the organization developed to be what it is today. She went over the various bumps on the road, and the successful overcome thanks to

outstanding volunteers. “Once you get involved, you become passionate about it,” Burns said, referring to the volunteers who got involved without knowing what to expect from the JOBC. The tennis committee is one of the most successful events of the organization, raising a substantial amount of money, which helps the non-profit to keep benefiting the community. “It’s like managing a business, that’s how we run the committee,” said Barbara Waters, sharing tips of success. Waters is one of two co-chairs for the tennis committee. “We get along great, and I don’t think we could do it without each other,” she said. Some of the volunteers explained that the JOBC is not affected by the economic crisis. “We are not in the business of making money; we are here to serve the community,” said Chuck Little, chair of the Basketball Committee. The Junior Orange Bowl Festival is possible with the support of the City of Coral Gables, Miami Children’s Hospital, Orange Bowl Committee, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, Cultural Affairs Council, Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

He recalled his election promise to establish the correct values for MiamiDade properties and said that is exactly what his office has done.

$135 million biosciences project completed for UM BY JEANMARIE FERRARA Moss & Associates, one of Florida’s largest construction services companies, has completed a multifaceted $135 million project for the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine that includes a new 10-story biosciences research laboratory, a massive central energy plant and 1,400-space parking garage. The centerpiece is the 178,263-squarefoot Biomedical Research Building for the Miami Institute for Human Genomics, led by acclaimed geneticists Margaret Pericak-Vance, PhD, and Jeffery Vance, MD, PhD, and the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, directed by Joshua Hare, MD. “As the new home for two renowned academic research programs, this facility will be a key anchor for the growth and sustainability of South Florida’s life sciences sector,” said Bob Moss, president and CEO, Moss & Associates. Considered to be one of the most technically challenging, complex and advanced research centers in Florida, the building was designed by Karlsberger. It incorporates under one roof all critical components typically found in leading

research campuses: a Class 10,000 cGMP manufacturing laboratory, BSL 2 wet labs, vivariums, an imaging suite and faculty offices. Moss is pursuing a Silver Level Leadership in Energy and

Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the facility, with energy-saving features that include a single-ply reflective rubber roof, an air-conditioning condensate recycling system and “daylight harvesting” of sunlight. The building

meets stringent federal research standards such as separate, dedicated laboratory air systems. Supporting the new Biomedical Research Building is a 10-story, 551,000square-foot parking structure and a 26,000-square-foot, 14-megawatt central energy plant — the second largest in South Florida — that will provide backup power for the new facility and future campus buildings. Both components were designed by Theodore Roux of Miami. Under a separate contract, Moss also is constructing a campus-wide underground chilled water distribution piping and utility service network. “Moss kept this key project on track, from coordinating multiple design teams to managing complex utility connections, in a dense, high-traffic urban environment,” said Rich Jones, associate vice president of facilities design and construction, University of Miami. “They managed a 250-person labor force, while maintaining a safe environment and keeping adjacent hospitals and businesses in full operation.” For more information, visit online at <www.mosscm.com>.

Wall’s features 40 flavors of ice cream, old movies BY RON BEASLEY Tom McKinney bought the Wall’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream store in South Miami four years ago with his wife, Carol, and he has been dishing up 40 flavors of delicious ice cream ever since. “I was looking for a place to buy and I found this place,” McKinney said. “I thought it would be a lot of fun and that I could make some money doing it, so we bought it four years ago…” Jeff Wall founded the business at 8075 SW 67 Ave. three years earlier in the same building that originally housed the popular Big Cheese Restaurant from 1984 to 1991. The Big Cheese moved across the street when that building became available. McKinney, 61, a native Miamian, stocks more flavors of ice cream in his store than an old Howard Johnson ice cream shop. “I have 28 flavors showing all the time, but I actually have 40 flavors in stock,” he said. “But I can’t show them all because I don’t have enough room. So we alternate displaying some flavors.” If you don’t see what you want in the display case, just ask and McKinney

probably has it in the back room. He buys his ice cream from a Miami-Dade County company that exports most of the product it makes. “He makes it in small batches, so it’s always fresh,” McKinney said. “He never makes more than 12 tubs at a time and I draw it off as I need it. Then he’ll make 12 more and throw them in the freezer. I have quarts and pints, and three plastic cups in four sizes. I give kids a smaller portion and, of course, the price is adjusted accordingly.” A quart of ice cream sells for $8.79 and a pint goes for $4.79. McKinney also stocks a variety of mouth-watering homemade fudge. “That’s something that I started making about eight months ago,” he said. “I thought it would be a nice add-on to the ice cream. I thought that the people would eat the ice cream while they’re here and, if they liked the fudge, they’d take some home with them. “The company I deal with sells me the same ingredients that they sell to Disney World. I use the same system to make it that Disney uses and basically I produce the same product that they do.” McKinney recently instituted a new wrinkle at the ice cream parlor, some-

thing aimed at drawing new customers. “We’re showing old movies — television classics and old movies,” he said. “At dark, we set up a projector outside and show them on the side of the building, sort of like a mini drive-in theater.” “I have some Elvis movies, I Love Lucy, Ozzie and Harriet, Leave It to Beaver, The Honeymooners, Superman from the ’50s with George Reeves; I have Superman cartoons from the ’40s, Batman from

1934, and I’ve just recently ordered Star Trek because of the new movie coming out and all the interest in Star Trek.” Wall’s Ice Cream Parlor opens each day at noon and closes at 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, midnight on Friday and Saturday, and 10:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Roxy Theatre Group sings on Royal Caribbean cruise ship BY SUSANNE PINEDO The Roxy Theatre Group’s (RTG) Junior and Senior Voice Teams recently gave award-winning performances aboard Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas as part of Music Festivals International. The Roxy Theatre Group (RTG), a non-profit arts organization for children, has been planning this special performance opportunity for their advanced voice students since September. “I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour,” sang the Junior Voice Team members, ages 8-13, from the popular television sitcom Friends as part of their performance, “Stay Tuned.” The kids performed several tunes from well-known shows such as I Love Lucy and Sesame Street for passengers on the cruise ship. The Senior Voice Team, ages 13-18, presented songs from popular films as part of their performance, “The Movie Medley.” The array of songs from popular films included such favorites as Footloose and We Go Together from Grease. “It was sensational to put into practice all of the training we’ve received at Roxy. We were all so excited to sing on

BY ROBERT HAMILTON Nearly 70 people gathered on Sunday, June 14, to celebrate the American Flag at the historic Dice House, Kendall oldest residence built in 1929. Lisa Lesperance and her family hosted the party to celebrate Flag Day, which first originated in 1885. In 1949, President Harry Truman designated June 14 as National Flag Day. Commissioner Katy Sorenson spoke to the crowd about the history of the Dice House and her successful efforts

to save the structure from demolition, and eventually moving it to Continental Park. Other elected officials in attendance included State Rep. Dwight Bullard, Pinecrest Mayor Cindy Lerner and Pinecrest Vice Mayor Jeff Cutler. Lisa Lesperance’s 93-year-old grandmother, Lorette Spalding, was introduced by Louis Lesperance, Lisa’s father. Lorette, a VA Hospital volunteer since 1969, led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by John Branzer on trumpet playing the Star Stangled Banner.

Your Hearing, Specialized by the Duran Family Can you hear conversations, but not understand the words clearly? Does it sound like others are mumbling? This could be the first indication of hearing loss. As people begin to lose their hearing, volume does not necessarily decrease, like lowering a radio. It actually feels more like listening through a broken speaker, where you can hear but not understand what was said. To make matters worse we may lose more volume in some frequencies than others causing conversations to sound muffled and difficult to follow. Dr. Joseph K. Duran can help you understand your hearing loss and determine if hearing aids are right for you.

Relay For Life at Metrozoo brings community together BY VERONICA C. BUIE

Dozens of teams and supporters for the Relay For Life campaign to fight cancer gathered on the sunny morning of Saturday, June 27, at Miami Metrozoo’s north east parking lot to assemble their tents and display their wares in preparation for the event. Miami-Dade County Commission chair Dennis C. Moss led the way as the event generated nearly $30,000, surpassing the $25,000 goal previously set. The 12-hour event consisted of opening ceremonies highlighting the many cancer survivors, several dance contests, chance drawings, entertainment, games, all-day relay laps around the track, face-painting, and loads of fun with Billy the Marlin and the Marlins Mermaids cheerleaders. The evening concluded with a somber and emotional luminaria (candlelight) ceremony with attendees taking one last silent lap around the track in memory of family members and friends who lost their battles with cancer. Relay For Life (often shortened to Relay) is a fundraising event of the American Cancer Society, and now is

held in many other countries. It is an event designed to spread awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. It

also celebrates survivorship and raises money for research to find cures for cancer.

The event honors the lives of those who have survived cancer and it recognizes those who are still battling the disease and reflects upon the memories of those who lost their battle with cancer. This fundraising initiative encourages teams and other participants to take turns walking or running around the track with representatives on the track at all times during the event. Saturday’s event was the culmination of a six-week long fundraising endeavor. “This event is more than just raising money for cancer treatment and research; it is a great opportunity for the community to come together — regardless of age, race or gender — to remember, honor and celebrate those who have somehow been touched or affected by this awful disease. We all look forward to the day when cancer will be totally done away with,” Commissioner Moss said. Individuals still wishing to contribute to this Relay For Life fundraising event (until Aug. 30) or who want additional information about the event can log onto <www.relayforlife.org/metrozoofl>.

Now is the time to look at new business choices BY LISA SMITH These are uncertain times and millions of people are looking for additional income. Small businesses are today’s job engines, generating 80% of all new employment. My business associate, Missi Smith, and I found our small business opportunity a little over three years ago with Arbonne International, a network marketing company that distributes pure, safe, and beneficial skincare, cosmetics, personal care, weight management, anti-aging, nutrition, and wellness products. In 2008, Arbonne International sold more skin care products in the US and Canada than any other manufacturer in the world. Robert Kyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, notes that network marketing grows when the economy slumps. Arbonne is a good example of this fact as the company signed on more Independent Consultants in the month of January 2009 than ever before. The attraction is the low startup/monthly expense, quick learning curve, and incredible income potential. This is not just a business for parents who want to stay home with their children. Although we have many women and men who want to work at home because of the flexibility it offers a family lifestyle, many of our consultants are simply adding an additional stream of income. We have a diverse team of men and women from many professional backgrounds including teachers, physicians, salon and spa owners, health care professional, attorneys, corporate executives, and retirees. Arbonne is a company of choices. It is a 29-year-old company that offers over 450 consumable products that are unparalleled in quality and effectiveness in the health and wellness industry. Consultants have the opportunity to “be their own boss” and partake in a lucrative payout plan. Also, the compa-

ny is just beginning its international expansion and is expecting tremendous growth over the next 10 years. According to Harvest Partners, a private equity firm specializing in investments in management buyouts and growth capital financings, Arbonne’s sales are projected to double by the end of 2010. What does this mean to us? Amazing opportunity! What we do is simple. Everyone is already doing what we do—they just don’t get a paycheck for it. Our job is to teach people how they can replace products their family is already using with pure, safe, and beneficial products from Arbonne. Everyone is already spending the money, why not spend it on healthy products, receive a great discount, and get paid for doing it? Or even better, teach just four others to do the same and get paid even more. It is all about choices. We choose to ignite, inspire and educate others to make healthier choices for their families while working toward financial freedom. Arbonne as a career choice that really works! You set your own hours and chart your own income course with Arbonne. As a widowed mother of two, I joined Arbonne in 2005. The income I realize allows me to work from home and be available as a full-time mother of two very active teenagers. My associate Missi has been able to more than replace the income she was realizing as the result of a 21-year retail career. Miami is a market just waiting for growth of Arbonne International products. We envision exponential expansion of our client base in the next few months. We are actively looking for those who are willing to take the lead and realize the profits. We are particularly interested in recruiting Arbonne Independent Consultants familiar with the Latino Market. Lisa Smith, Regional Vice President of Arbonne International Miami, is looking to hear from you. Please contact her at 786255-1828 or lsmithtt@bellsouth.net.

Chevrolet adds SS Sedan to 2009 Cobalt lineup Ron Beasley AUTOMOTIVE EDITOR

LET’S TALK CARS The Cobalt is Chevrolet’s “high value” automobile and, overall, it’s a pretty snazzy little vehicle. It’s sporty looking, delivers a smooth, quiet ride and handles very responsively, all at a pretty reasonable price. Available in coupe and sedan body styles, Cobalt has a sleek design with a low-slung body and a fast roofline. The “aircraft-style” doors are integrated into the exterior surface for a tight, flush fit and give the car a solid appearance. The coupe has a sportier look with its tapered, reverse C-pillars that lead to the four round taillights. Other design details include the Chevy-signature horizontal grille bar and gold bowtie insignia, single-cavity headlights with all forward lighting functions contained in the same unit (except for the foglamps); different

rear fascias for sedans and coupes, and a family of wheel sizes ranging from 15inch to 18-inch. The Chrome Exterior Package for LT sedan models includes a chrome grille, body-side moldings, exhaust tip and door handles. For 2009, Chevy has added a turbocharged SS Sedan to the Cobalt lineup, one that already included LS, LT and SS Coupe models. The sedan has all of the SS Coupe’s performance, handling and styling features. Both the SS Coupe and Sedan are powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged, intercooled Ecotec engine that uses direct injection technology to deliver a balance of performance and fuel efficiency, along with a surprisingly quick 0-60 mph clocking of 5.7 seconds. The Cobalt LS and LT models come with a 2.2-liter Ecotec engine with variable valve timing added for an increase in horsepower (148 to 155) and more efficient performance. The engine also qualifies the Cobalt as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle and gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in city driving and 37 mpg on the highway. Chevy has discontinued the Cobalt

Sport model, but the Sport Appearance Package is available on the LT model. It includes a rear spoiler, larger body-color fascias and rocker moldings; 17-inch polished aluminum wheels with performance tires; chrome exhaust tip; fog lamps; white-face sport gauges; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob; and steering wheel audio controls. For 2009, Chevrolet has added a wide range of enhancements to the Cobalt lineup, including Bluetooth capability for wireless, hands-free cell phone connectivity and a USB port on the radio that allows iPods and similar devices to

be played through the audio system. In something of a new wrinkle, engineers have added a tire inflator kit in place of the standard spare tire to save space and weight in the Cobalt. A conventional spare tire is optional. Our test vehicle was the 2009 Chevy Cobalt LS Coupe and it had a base price of $16,660.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES Aries - You may have the kind of experience that only makes sense in retrospect this week a learning experience involving money, values, friendship and children. You may find yourself passing along your values about hard work or family values to your own children or someone else's. Be careful if it is the latter - your values may not be in line with their parent's!

Libra - Your spiritual beliefs, the power of prayer, or the peace granted by meditation techniques could all come in handy when you are fighting your temper this week. You want to get something done, but a partner or associate is getting in the way with some selfish concerns.

Gemini - You may have some confusing experiences while meditating or during prayer this week. Your spiritual energies are still at a peak, but the psychic insight you count on may not be totally reliable. You could get confusing and conflicting impressions.

Cancer - You will have a happier and more

Scorpio - Your love life is confusing and

Sagittarius - You need some playtime, but you may find that it is impossible to pull yourself away from work, chores and duties this week. A friend may be trying to encourage you to "run away from home", but their motivation is a little selfish - they want your company. Capricorn - You'll feel twitchy this week

and won't be sure why. You may find yourself in the middle of a heated discussion asking yourself "Why does this matter so much to me?" The answer is that "it", whatever "it" may be, triggers emotions dating back to old childhood disappointments.

Aquarius - You are at the centre of a con-

social ladder this week. While you may end up a rung or two higher when it is all over be sure you bring along some balm for the hands and feet you tread on when you are wildly swinging along right now.

Virgo - You are feeling very reflective, thoughtful and introspective. You might have acted rashly recently, and the consequences have you second-guessing yourself. Accept yourself, love yourself, forgive yourself and move on in confidence!

Pisces - A family member may be able to help you untie your tongue a bit, but only if you let them. You will feel torn about revealing a secret or keeping it inside. Be careful to confide only in someone who has the wisdom and maturity to be helpful right now.
