Golf carts now may ‘cross the line’ between cities

American Red Cross urges renewed attention to summer water safety

he Palmetto Bay Village Council during its May 3 meeting at the Deering Estate Visitors Center voted unanimously to pass an ordinance providing for reciprocal use of properly registered golf carts between the Town of Cutler Bay and Village of Palmetto Bay. The Cutler Bay Commission had enacted a similar ordinance on Feb. 17 permitting the golf carts of village residents to be used on town roads, so the move by the village council allows residents of both cities to “cross the line” and enjoy travel between the two communities. “I think the new ordinance is fantastic,” said village resident Marshall Berk.

aroline Gorham joined the Village Hall staff in mid-April, working as administrative assistant to Human Resources director Olga Cadaval, and will help with human resources, grant writing and other administrative matters. Gorham has been a Palmetto Bay resident for the past 10 years and even lives close to Village Hall, so she has a stake in things that happen in the community. She has a BA in Business Administration and also focused on International Studies and Spanish, both of which she believes will come in handy in her work. She studied in Holland and Spain in addition to her stateside education. “I really like it here,” Gorham said about Village Hall. “I’m impressed with the good, positive feeling. Everyone here is very helpful.”

fter two accidental drowning deaths recently in Broward County, the American Red Cross (ARC) urges South Floridians to take extra precautions around home swimming pools and other places where children might swim unsupervised. “While we are all looking forward to a summer of fun with our family and friends, it’s important to remember that most water-related accidents can be avoided by knowing how to stay safe and following a few simple guidelines,” said Hunter Ruffin, regional director of Health and Safety Services at the American Red Cross South Florida Region. “Everyone should know how to

Village council OKs school’s expansion with restrictions BY GARY ALAN RUSE

The Palmetto Bay Village Council during a public hearing on May 4 that didn’t wrap up until 2 a.m. the following morning, ruled on a controversial topic that not only generated heated debate within the community, it also brought out 800 residents to a type of meeting usually attended by 50 to 200 people. In the meeting conducted at Christ Fellowship Church, 8900 SW 168 St., Palmer Trinity’s application for rezoning from agricultural (AG) and estate singlefamily five-acre (E-2) district to estate modified single-family (E-M) was approved unanimously. This was expected after the Third District Court of Appeal ruled that the zoning change could not be denied. The council also approved by a 3-2 vote the school’s request to use all 55 acres of its property located at 8001 SW 184 St. in Palmetto Bay, and provide an increase in total student enrollment to 900 instead of the 1,150 students Palmer Trinity sought. Voting for the action were Vice Mayor Brian W. Pariser and Councilmembers Howard J. Tendrich and Edward Feller, MD. Mayor Eugene Flinn and Councilmember Shelly Stanczyk cast “no” votes. “This is the time for the community to come together and build a positive relationship now that the process has been concluded,” Stanczyk said in a May 6 interview. Tendrich said that he wished he could comment on the vote but that he had

just heard that new lawsuits were being filed and that he was prohibited from speaking about the issue while litigation was pending. The following conditions were imposed: • No development applications to expand students or buildings for 30 years; • A dense 75-foot buffer; • Paver parking, no asphalt; • Traffic-related improvements, on site and off; • No lighting of fields; • Limited, metered/timer lighting of parking lots; • No commercial use of the site; • Regulating construction staging; • Mechanisms to enforce all conditions (ticketing, revoking permits, etc.); • Regulation of hours of operation; • No buildings over 35 feet; • Massing of the two large structures was modified; • Sidewalks installed in rights of way; • Traffic studies in future; • No interference with nighttime astronomy programs at Bill Sadowski Park; • Biennial code compliance reviews with applicant; • Noise measurements on site, biennial with Community Relations Committee; • Creation of Community Relations Committee to include members of the school (3), citizens (3), and Village administration — appointed by the Village Council; • One tournament at a time on fields — not multiple use, and • Requiring a “covenant running with the land” — tying the land, in future, to the conditions imposed by the council.

“It’s easy to get around — there’s less traffic on the side streets. It’s fun. I think people are going to have a nice time with it. I have family in Cutler Bay, so we can visit each other with the carts, now.” Berk is one of a number of golf cart owners who is registered and enjoys using the scaled-down form of transportation to visit friends and relatives, get coffee or food or do some shopping in accessible areas. He also said that when he is in the golf cart, people wave and respond to him in a friendly manner, and the relaxed pace is nice. “I wish Pinecrest would do the same thing,” Berk said. “I have some family members over there, too.” To operate golf carts on streets within Palmetto Bay or Cutler Bay, the carts must be registered with one of the municipali-

swim well. We can help families stay safe by teaching skills through our swimming and water safety program that teaches children and adults to learn how to swim skillfully and safely.” A survey conducted by the American Red Cross in 2009 shows the importance of water safety skills, with half of those surveyed saying they have had a neardrowning experience in their lifetime. The survey found that 48 percent reported a near-drowning experience, and nearly one in three said they had a near-drowning scare between the ages of 5 and 15. The national survey of 1,002 adults was conducted in late March in advance of the summer to assess the water activity plans of families and their water safety knowledge and training. The Red Cross survey found more than 90 percent of people planned to participate in water-related activities in the summer with nearly half of parents — with children between the ages of 3 and 17 — planning to engage in water-related activities where no lifeguard would be on duty. If you plan to head to the pool or to the beach this summer or if you have a backyard pool, follow these tips from American Red Cross South Florida Region to have a fun and safe time on the water: • Never leave children unattended near water — not even for a moment! Adults should practice “reach supervision,” which means to always be within arm’s length when a young child is near water. For older children — even adults — who are not strong swimmers, practice “active”

ties, driven by someone 18 or older with a valid driver’s license, be covered by insurance and have the required basic safety equipment. Carts must have four wheels, lights, turn signals, brakes, seatbelts, be limited to less than 20 miles per hour and carry no more than four people. All streets in the village are permitted except for major heavily trafficked ones such as S. Dixie Highway (US1), Old Cutler Road, SW 136th Street, SW 144th Street, SW 152nd Street, SW 168th Street, SW 184th Street, SW 67th Avenue, SW 77th Avenue, SW 82nd Avenue, SW 87th Avenue and SW 97th Avenue. Carts cannot be operated on sidewalks, bike paths, swales or inside of parks (other than legitimate parking spaces). There’s a $50 initial registration fee, but the annual renewal is only $10. For more information, contact either Palmetto Bay Village Hall at 305-259-1234 or Cutler Bay Town Hall at 305-234-4262.

or constant supervision and make sure they wear U.S. Coast Guard approved lifejackets whenever in or around the water. • Know how to respond to an emergency. You should know how to tell if a swimmer is in distress or is drowning and how and when to call for emergency help. You also should learn how to help someone in trouble in water while keeping safe yourself. Do not create a situation where you become a victim as well. Enroll in Red Cross water safety, first aid and CPR courses to learn what to do. • Keep lifesaving gear handy. Always have on hand a ring buoy, life jacket, rope, pole or other object that can be used to help a person in trouble. Remember to have a first aid kit, cordless phone and emergency contact information by the pool. • Know when it is too dangerous. If you, or someone you are swimming with, appear to be too cold, too far from safety, been exposed to too much sun, or had too much strenuous activity, it is time to head for shore or signal for help. • Eliminate temptation. Backyard pools should have self-closing, self-latching gates that remain locked when the pool is not being used. Kiddie pools should be emptied and toys removed immediately after use. Empty water pales and buckets so small children cannot fall in and drown. • Know what you’re getting into. Check local tides, currents and other conditions that could be dangerous before entering open bodies of water. For more information on learn-to-swim classes, or pool safety tips, contact the American Red Cross at 305-644-1200 or 1-954-797-3800.

Lots of interesting things coming up this summer Michael Miller EXECUTIVE EDITOR

AROUND TOWN S pe ak ers y o u m a y w an t t o h e ar… Vanessa D. Derenoncourt, Executive Assistant of the Economic Development Council reminds us that the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month the EDC hosts a Community Outreach meeting. Keynote speakers are leading professionals from diverse business and economic industries. Presentations are highly informative and educational, and of importance to local businesses and residents. The following is a list of upcoming speakers: Tuesday, May 25th - Ms. Barbara Moser, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Economic Crimes Division. Tuesday, June 8th - José Abreu, Director of Miami-Dade Aviation Department. Tuesday, June 22nd - Mike Sophia, Executive Director of Miami-Dade Sports Commission.

Following the presentation, there will be a question and answer session held during the meeting. Community Outreach meetings are from 8:00-9:00 a.m. at the Economic Development Council located at 900 Perrine Avenue in Palmetto Bay, Florida. The Economic Development Council’s Community Outreach Meetings are a free public service and open to the community. For more information contact: 305-378-9470 or go to www.edcsouthdade.com. Both Palmer Trinity (in Palmetto Bay) and Riviera Schools (asking for a new High School campus on 87th Avenue in Kendall) coincidentally stirring up strong protests, largely due to the same reasons: potential of athletic field lights lighting neighborhood skies and increased traffic on crowded two-lane roads that serve building sites. Legal redress looks to be the only answer to Palmetto Bay’s 3-2 approval (at 2 a.m. last Tuesday) with over 20 conditions. Continental Park HOA met again to review to the Grade 8-12 Riviera High School with money in the bank already pledged to begin legal proceedings...when and if!

of soccer players from ages 5 years to forty plus gathered at Evelyn Greer Park on Sunday, May 2, for the inaugural Pinecrest Soccer Marathon, the first of its kind in South Florida. Organized by the Community Foundation of Pinecrest to benefit its many programs and initiatives, this was the first marathon of its type in South Florida. CFP Chair Steve Beiley praised Event Chairman Pierre Apollon and Logistic Chair Steven Steele, and the many volunteers who helped make this a memorable day for all. The Foundation generously waived entrance fees for all participants thanks, in part, to the support of such corporations and businesses as Norwegian Cruise Line, Jennifer Wollmann (EWM Realtors), Heller Waldman, P.A., The Corradino Group, Community Newspapers, Casthely Orthondontics, GOL TV All Soccer Network, Soccer Locker, Costo, In Source, Fine Printing, Rick Tonkinson and Associates, and the Village of Pinecrest, to mention a few. F o r the seventh year, Commissioner Joe Martinez presents his “Creative Visions Student Art Exhibition,” opening at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum Wednesday, May

12, at 6 p.m. on FIU’s main campus with a special feature this year: competition among three Kendall senior highs (Braddock, Varela and Ferguson) with creative videos, vying for the best of show, which can be viewed on an 11Tube e-Creative Visions web site.

Running in general election different than primary R. Kenneth Bluh KENNETHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S COMMENTARY I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the U.S. Senate race in Florida is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;anyone can winâ&#x20AC;? threeway race. Everything â&#x20AC;&#x153;wasâ&#x20AC;? nice and cozy for both Kendrick Meek and Marco Rubio as long as Charlie Crist stayed in the Republican Party. Rubio had the upper hand and short of some disastrous revelation would have coasted into the November elections. Independents were up for grabs. True, Rubio has the American Express debacle potentially hanging over his head. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it will have much of an impact. Contributors to the Republican Party of Florida are more interested in having their man elected to office than they are about a ruckus over improper spending of political contributions. Meek currently has total control over the Democratic primary. He has a few opponents but they are underfunded and have the same problem as Meek, but to a far less

â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; VIEWPOINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; extent. They basically are unknown north of Palm Beach County. The entry of Jeff Greene, a billionaire from Palm Beach County into the Democratic race can cause a primary race problem for Meek inasmuch as Greene plans on dumping millions of his own dollars into the race. Not being beholden to any power structure or lobbying groups will appeal to a number of voters. Gov. Cristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long anticipated move out of the Republican Party, becoming an Independent, or as he calls it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;NPAâ&#x20AC;? No Party Affiliation, is creating financial problems for Crist as many of the dollars he has in his campaign war chest will be going back to contributors angered by his move. Cristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move will take votes away from Meek as a number of registered Democrats are concerned that Meek will not fair well in North Florida. In the general election, they may turn to Crist, who is more of a Democrat than many elected Democrats

sitting in Washington, DC. For the life of me I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the Republican position on the stimulus package embraced by Crist a year ago when President Obama visited our state and received a warm welcome from the the governor. It is a good political move by Rubio, but in my opinion rings hollow because the Republican-controlled Legislature in Tallahassee not only embraced Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stimulus money, but proudly used it to balance the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Simply said, without the stimulus dollars some $800 billion in all, we would be seeing many more cuts in services in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. There just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough revenue to cover all of Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. Without Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stimulus dollars, the Republican Party would have had a tough time explaining even deeper cuts in services without any increases in taxes. It would appear that if Crist can quickly reassemble a statewide team of supporters

and can cover the dollars he will loose to the far right Republicans then he should be our next senator from Florida. Crist doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face the difficult task of moving his campaign to the middle of the political spectrum come the general elections. Republicans must appear to be to the right of the Tea Party to win their primary. Democrats must be to the left of the old Labor Party to win their primary. Once the primary races are settled, the winning candidates must pull to the middle of the political road to win the general election. Crist is lucky. He already is there.

Initiative aimed at getting Floridians back to work Al Sunshine 4 YOUR MONEY There’s a new initiative called the “Florida Back to Work” program and it is aimed at getting people back to work. It was approved by Congress several months ago and for the first time millions of dollars in Federal Job Grants are starting to hit the streets of South Florida. It also could offer critically needed incentives to small businesses here and around the state to start hiring again. I spoke to one Kendall resident who wants to get back to work. The financial services expert was laid off from his job last year when his bank was taken over by another company. His job was eliminated and he has been forced to pay his bills with a series of part-time jobs. “It’s kind of hard being a college graduate and professional taking part time jobs that I’m overqualified for,” he told me. “But I’ve taken whatever I could find, almost anything to pay the bills.” Thanks to the new $200 million program, Florida just started distributing job grants for companies to start hiring new workers. Florida’s money comes from a much bigger “back to work” federal job program that’s aimed at funding about 25,000 new fulltime jobs through at least the end of September, jobs paying about $12 an hour. South Florida’s share comes out to

about $86 million to fund about 5,000 new positions. “Their moneys are being sent down from Washington through Tallahassee,” said Cheri Kavehershi, a job specialist with Miami’s South Florida Workforce. “They allow local businesses to seek job funds and hire local workers who’ve enrolled with us, and they should help a great deal to lower the latest unemployment rate.” Employers already are starting to apply for the new grants, but they have to hire qualified workers through the state’s job banks after they’ve formally registered for the state’s back to work programs. That Kendall resident I mentioned earlier hopes the new back to work grants will finally help him get a new fulltime job. “I think it’s a great idea and I’ll be grateful for any opportunity I can get.” State employment specialists say it looks like the plan could help turn around the local job market and it could be a key step to getting companies hiring again. The funding runs through the end of September and by then, state and federal officials hope local companies will be in a much better position to keep their new hires on the job, rather than triggering a new round of layoffs as the U.S. economy is expected to start seeing more solid signs of improvement.

Palmetto’s Weiner in running for district Principal of Year BY LINDA RODRIGUEZ BERNFELD

Palmetto High School Principal Howard Weiner has been named the Region Five Principal of the Year. Although this is his ninth year as a principal, this is the first time he has been named Principal of the Year. He was previously the administrator at South Pointe Elementary, 2001-02, and principal at North Miami Middle School from 2002 to 2005 when he arrived at Palmetto High. “To me, it’s a distinct honor to be recognized by my fellow colleagues and by my region,” Weiner said. “I think one of our strengths is our outstanding record of being an A school.” Weiner was nominated by someone in the Palmetto feeder pattern. Each feeder pattern nominates a candidate, who is then required to fill out a packet of information, including several essays that must be turned in to the region. Those packets include areas such as what the candidate has done to reduce student absences or increase parental involvement. This school year, with his blessings, the Palmetto PTSA tried something new in order to get more parents involved in the school. “We’ve reached out to underserved parents by having PTSA meetings and work-

shops at R. R. Moton,” he said. “The most important ingredient for student success is parental involvement.” It is his support of these types of programs that show why Weiner has a good relationship with the PTSA. “These are things that aren’t done in isolation; they are done collectively,” he said. Randi Trazenfeld, a PTSA board member, said Weiner deserves the distinction of Principal of the Year. “He continually makes it clear that the kids are his top priority, and the students realize this. The students know that their education, safety and success are most important to him,” she said. “Mr. Weiner is approachable and transparent, willing to discuss any and all concerns that parents may have.” Trazenfeld is gratified especially with his whole-hearted support of the Community Outreach effort and the fact that he does whatever he can to promote parental involvement opportunities for all parents. The Principal of the Year honor places him in the pool to become the MiamiDade Public Schools Principal of the Year at an event scheduled on May 19. He is competing against candidates from the other four regions.

Financial Planning for FPL Employees I am an FPL employee. Do you have any suggestions specifically geared toward my employment? Yes, I have been working with FPL since 1991 (18 years), and I have some suggestions that should apply to you regardless of your age or time with the company. First: I suggest that you complete a comprehensive questionnaire (fact finder) with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) in order to determine your 401k investment criteria and a realistic budget to see what you can contribute to the 401k. Second: Make an effort to maximize your contribution to your 401k plan. FPL matches your contribution up to 7% of your straight time salary. I suggest that you try to get to the 20% level especially if you are a new hire. Your 401k contribution actually decreases your taxable income so there’s a tax break for doing this. Third: Stay with FPL until the Rule 90 is satisfied. Rule 90 is a point system that

adds your age and time with FPL. Once you reach 90 points, your medical benefits are paid until age 65. At age 65, Medicare will be your health provider. For every point less than 90 you pay 2% of the insurance premium. If your age (55) and time with FPL (25 years) totals 80 then you will pay 20% of the premium. There are certain transition credits and age 55 rules that also need to be considered. The rule 90 does not apply for some new hirees. The health insurance premiums for people outside of FPL is a major cost. This will require that you save as much as you can, keep your other bills low and pay attention to your health.

Convert to a Roth IRA? Why Now May Be the Right Time? BY LAURA GROGAN-O’MARA of Merrill Lynch The IRS has lifted income restrictions for those converting traditional IRAs or 401(k)s to Roth IRAs. Is the opportunity right for you? Since its introduction in 1997, the Roth IRA has enjoyed great popularity. Roth IRA owners can make after-tax contributions and withdraw them, taxfree, at any time if certain conditions are met. Once the account has been open and funded for five years, distributions will be income-tax and penalty-free provided the account holder is at least age 59½ or meets one of the other circumstances for making a qualified distribution.1 Another significant benefit is that Roth IRAs are not subject to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) mandated required minimum distributions (RMDs) during the holder’s lifetime, which means the assets can remain in the account until the account owner makes a voluntary distribution. This differs from a raditional IRA where generally the account owner must begin taking RMDs annually, starting with the year that he or she reaches 70 ½ years of age. 2 One of the Roth’s few drawbacks has been its income restriction for converting from a traditional IRA. However, starting this year, the IRS has lifted the income restriction for investors who convert their traditional IRA and/or eligible employer-sponsored retirement plan such as a 401(k) to a Roth IRA.3 If you’re focused on saving for retirement, this is good news. But anyone considering converting to a Roth IRA needs to underTom Mays, stand the less obvious effects of this decision. For instance, the conversion involves an up-front tax liability that may be worth assuming, depending on your circumstances and retirement income strategy. Typically, it makes most sense to convert when: • The balance of the traditional IRA you’re converting is substantial • You expect to occupy a higher tax bracket in retirement than you do now • You expect your beneficiaries to move to a higher tax bracket after they inherit your IRA assets • You can pay the taxes on the conversion from assets other than those being converted Consider these questions when you speak with your Financial Advisor about Roth IRAs: • How would I benefit during retirement from a Roth conversion now? • What assets do I have available to cover any tax liability that proceeds from converting my IRA or 401(k)? • How would converting my IRA or 401(k) to a Roth IRA affect my beneficiaries? There are two other factors you may want to consider as you mull over the choice. One isthat market turbulence may have primed your IRA or 401(k) for conversion—a lower account balance generates a lower tax burden. The other thing to remember is that, you generally must recognize the full taxable income from your conversions in the conversion year. However, under a special rule for conversions you make in 2010, you may elect to bring one-half of the taxable portion of your conversion into ordinary income tax in 2011 and the other half of the taxable portion into ordinary income in 2012. This means that you are subject to whatever the ordinary income tax rates are in 2011 and 2012 respectively and does not lock in your 2010 ordinary income tax rates. Another way to potentially mitigate the taxable burden is by converting only a portion of your assets.

However, it’s wise to explore the ramifications beforehand. Converting a portion of IRA assets is more complex than it seems at first blush. Investors may be under the impression that it’s possible to convert only after-tax IRA contributions to a Roth and thus avoid having to pay any taxes on the conversion. As nice as that would be, it’s not possible because of the way the IRS views IRA assets. Even if you have after-tax money in your IRA, the IRS won’t allow you to convert only those contributions. Instead, the IRS looks at all your IRA accounts together and prorates the taxes you owe based on both taxable and nontaxable assets. Of course, all the earnings on your contributions are still subject to tax upon conversion. Taxes on earnings are not prorated—it doesn’t matter whether those earnings came from deductible or nondeductible contributions. In the right situation, converting to a Roth IRA can be extremely beneficial to your retirement plans. It’s important to work with both your Financial Advisor and your accountant to help you determine whether this brand-new opportunity can help you achieve your retirement savings goals.

All rights reserved. 1 Generally, there is a 5-year holding period when determining whether earnings can be withdrawn taxfree as part of a qualified distribution (i.e., regular/spousal contributions, conversions or employer plan rollover) from a Roth IRA. This period begins January 1 of the tax year of the first contribution or the year of conversion to any Roth IRA. Regular contributions (but not earnings) may be withdrawn at any age, penalty-free. There is a 10% penalty for withdrawals of earnings taken before age 59½, unless an exception defined by the Internal Revenue Service applies, which include but are not limited to: death, disability, or qualified first home purchase (lifetime limit of $10,000). It is important to note that special penalty provisions apply for converted assets. If a nonqualified withdrawal is made within five years of theconversion, the earnings withdrawn will be subject to income tax, and the entire withdrawal may be subject to an additional penalty unless an exception applies. 2 The requirement begins the year the account owner reaches age 70 ½ (or, if later, the year in which the owner retires for employer-sponsored retirement plans). The RMD can be taken any time during the year but no later than Dec. 31. For the year in which the owner turns 70 ½, the deadline is extended until April 1 of the following year. In any year that an RMD is due, the IRS considers the first distribution to contain the RMD. Converting your account to a Roth IRA requires you take the RMD before converting your account. Ineligible funds converted to a Roth IRA will be subject to penalties and will be required to be removed as excess. You should review any planned financial transactions or arrangements that may have tax or accounting implications with your personal professional advisors. 3 Please note, however, that income-based restrictions are still in place regarding how much you can contribute to a Roth IRA.

Panini Grill wants to be home away from home BY LINDA RODRIGUEZ BERNFELD In Cutler Bay, not far from the Publix, there is a new restaurant, Panini Grill, that wants to be your home away from home. Panini Grill, 20465 Old Cutler Rd., has a homey atmosphere with fresh foods and free coffee with their breakfast offerings. “We are open early for breakfast,” said Vachagan Robert Yengibaryan, who with his wife, Natalia, own and operate Panini Grill. “We open at 7 a.m. with gourmet muffins and big croissants with ham and cheese.” He said the idea behind the restaurant is that Panini Grill is a place where you can go out to eat and eat well without having to break the bank. While you’re at Panini Grill you can watch the news, read your favorite book or newspaper. And if you didn’t bring a book, they have a few James Patterson novels that you can read. They also have X-Box and a Wii for kids to play. “We tailored this based on our needs. What we want in our neighborhood,” he said. “Customers are telling us this is what we need. A neighborhood gathering place.” In the near future, they will offer

Vachagan Robert Yengibaryan and wife, Natalia, own and operate Panini Grill. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

European beer and wines for the customers who come later in the day. They are open until 11 p.m. “The idea is not spend $15-$20 per per-

son (to eat),” he said. “The most expensive item here is $8.95.” They have been Cutler Bay residents for five years and also own a restaurant in Wellington. They moved to Cutler Bay when Yengibaryan secured a teaching job. He has taught at Southridge and Killian high schools. Yengibaryan has a degree in International Relations from Moscow State University and a PhD in Constitutional and International Law. When he lived in Moscow he owned 15 pharmacies and he had a pharmacy export business. His wife has a degree in business administration. He no longer teaches although he manages a student exchange program for Florida International University. “I bring students to study English,” he said. But his passion is cooking and he set aside his other interests to open the restaurants. Since he is very much into education, Yengibaryan studied on his own and received certifications needed to be in the food industry. He and his wife devised a menu using their European background and knowledge of Mediterranean foods. “The menus went through big changes

in the beginning,” he said. “It was a slower menu. Eventually we had to develop more items that could be done quickly. We are trying to stick with organic things. Chicken that we make is Kosher rated. No hormones, no antibiotics.” They also have a children’s menu that includes homemade chicken tenders. “We also have a vegetarian menu,” he said. “We make our own hummus.” The menu includes fresh soups and four different breads for wraps. “Once a week we offer something new,” he said. “If it sticks, we keep it on the menu.” So far, the desserts have been a hit. Desserts include mango mousse, Italian almond cake, and baklava. “We make all of our muffins,” Yengibaryan said. “And fresh cookies.” So far, the most popular item on the menu is the Greek gyro. It can be made with beef, lamb or chicken. “We make fabulous smoothies. They do not contain ice or powders.” Everything on the menu is available for pick-up.

Why hire an arborist to care for your trees? Planting: Arborists plant trees, and most can recommend types of trees that are appropriate for a specific location. The wrong tree in the wrong location could lead to future problems as a result of limited growing space, insects, diseases, or poor growth. Plant Health Car e: An Arborist keeps trees in good health by helping the tree to better defend itself against insects, disease, and site problems.

An arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Right Tree – Right Place Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property.

THE ARBORIST

Ser vices That Arborists Can Provide: Pr uning: An arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees. Removal: Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help you decide whether a tree should be removed. Emergency Tree Care: Storms may cause limbs or entire trees to fall, often landing on other trees, homes and other structures, or cars. The weight of storm-damaged trees is great, and they can be dangerous to remove or trim. An arborist can assist in performing the job in a safe manner, while reducing further risk of damage to property.

How do I know if this guy wi th a chainsaw is an Arborist? Many people who love trees become ISA members for a small annual fee. Some unscrupulous tree trimmers pretend that this simple membership is the same thing as being a “certified arborist.” Every ISA arborist has an individual ID number and ID card that you can check on the ISA website: <www.isa-arbor.com>. Ron von Paulus is an International Society of Arboriculture certified arborist (ID # Fl-5770A). He has more than 20 years experience working with trees in South Florida. He offers free consultations to homeowners and businesses. Please contact him at Big Ron’s Tree Service 305-588-3091 or by email at < ron@BigRonsTreeService.com>

Acura adds V-6 power to popular TSX sport sedan Ron Beasley AUTOMOTIVE EDITOR

LET’S TALK CARS The 2010 Acura TSX sport sedan has been given a hot new 3.5-liter V-6 engine for 2010 and it really is something special. Most auto enthusiasts who drove the earlier TSX with the 2.4-liter DOHC I-4 engine raved about the car’s performance. But, you ain’t seen nothing ’til you drive the newest version with the V-6. The new SOHC V-6 develops 280 hp and 254 pounds-feet of torque, has a very high compression ratio, VTEC valvetrain control and a dual-stage induction system through a lightweight magnesium intake manifold. It all adds up to rocket-like acceleration and pretty good gas mileage at 18/27 mpg. The V-6 is mated to a sophisticated Sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission that allows for a fully automatic operation with intelligent features such as Grade Logic Control and Shift

Hold Control, which make driving on a winding road an enjoyable experience. The transmission also may be operated manually with the steering wheel- mounted paddle shifters. The second generation TSX is larger, has a wider stance, is more agile and handles even better that its predecessor. It also has special suspension tuning, larger diameter wheels and tires (18x8-inch aluminum wheels with a split five-spoke design mounted with performance Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 P235/45R18 all-season tires) and brake system upgrades, as well as more comfort, convenience and safety features with expanded luxury and electronic equipment. Acura will continue to offer the TSX powered by a 201 hp DOHC inline fourcylinder engine (20/28). All 2010 TSX models have a state-ofthe-art double wishbone front and multilink rear suspension system for an excellent ride, handling and control. The new V-6 model’s independent front suspension has firmer springs and revised calibration for the dual-mode suspension dampers. As for styling, the new Acura TSX continues with the crisp, dynamic design of the original, though widened overall and with more muscular styling cues. All TSX mod-

Acura TSX continues with the crisp design of the original, although widened overall and with more muscular styling cues.

els ride on a chassis that includes a closedchannel cross-braced roof structure and inside frame rails. Along with a stronger rear bulkhead, the closed-channel crossbraced roof structure yields a more rigid and vibration-resistant body. On the inside, the interior is a blend of sweeping, contemporary shapes, with a high level of comfort and convenience features. There’s a much easier-to-read navigation screen (when equipped with the Technology Package) and an improved look of telephone number text displayed on the Multi Information Display. The TSX V-

6 has a one-touch ignition key starter system and an updated tachometer face with a unique rpm redline range that corresponds to the new V-6 engine. Pricing on the 2010 Acura TSX ranges from $29,310 for the base I-4 to $37,950 for the V-6 model with the Technology Package. Ron Beasley is the automotive editor for Miami’s Community Newspapers.
