ONE OF MIAMI’S COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS

JULY 19 - AUGUST 1, 2010

Village police tapped as ‘Flagship Agency’ for accreditation

BY RON BEASLEY

T

he Pinecrest Police Department continues to gain recognition as a top level law enforcement agency, earlier this month earning the prestigious designation as a “Flagship Agency” for police accreditation. The title was bestowed the Fairfax Virginia-based Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), which recently conducted its final reaccreditation inspection of the Village police department. “A Flagship Agency represents an extraordinary example of excellence in public safety and it is recognized as a potential resource for future and current CALEA clients,” said Sylvester Daughtry, executive director of CALEA in a letter to Police Chief John Hohensee. Chief Hohensee said he was pleased and honored with the Flagship designation and noted that his department had come a long way since its inception in 1997. “This is just the most recent feather in our cap,” said Hohensee. “It says that not only are we Chief Hohensee worthy of accreditation,

Rody is a longtime employee of Pinecrest’s Avian & Exotic Animal Clinic. Thanks for thinking of us and thanks for taking us along, guys!

During boom and bust, I’m bullish on Miami, and nothing about the last few years has changed that. Anyone who disagrees is welcome to take a walk onto Biscayne Boulevard past the condos, bustling shops and sidewalk cafes that were not there six years ago. I’ll take you to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, which helped reinvent Downtown Miami. I’ll show you projects from the Building Better Communities bond program, which is laying the foundation for the next generation of growth in Miami-Dade. And I’ll give you an amazing view of the whole thing from the upper deck of our new ballpark, which is on track to be a national model for public-private partnerships. We have taken a yesteryear airport and are transforming it into a gateway worthy of what Miami has become. We have taken a seaport that is globally competitive today and launched extraordinary projects to make it globally competitive tomorrow. We’re providing jobs in sectors that need them most at a time when they’re most needed. We have earned our place among the likes of Barcelona and Chicago and Sydney. Our challenge today is not to be better than this one or greater than that one. It is to be the architects of our own best future, the authors of our own greatest destiny. For better or worse, we will look back on this season in 10, 25 or 50 years, and realize what a crucial turning point it was.

Over the next few months, this community will hear news and make decisions that simply have no precedent in our modern history. Last month, we learned that property values fell more than 13 percent across the county. Some of our cities were hit as hard as 25 or 30 percent. Since 2008, countywide property value has fallen more than $53 billion. Sacrifices are coming. That is inevitable and, in some ways, can be healthy. Over the past three years, we at the county have closed budget gaps totaling $800 million. Now we’re facing a gap of another $420 million. For many of you, the cracks have not yet appeared. There’s a degree to which we’re proud of that. We had built up reserves and contingency funds, and that helped us persevere. A crisis is a terrible thing to waste, and we’ve been able to streamline our operations in ways my predecessors could never have hoped. We have fewer employees per resident than we have since the early 90s, and the typical resident pays less for government today, adjusted for inflation, than they have for some 20 years. Our union partners have made concessions that their predecessors would never have considered. And our employees have stepped up in ways we could never have imagined. Our police and firefighters will still be keeping you safe, the traffic lights will still have electricity and the tap water will still be clean, safe and delicious. The time has come, though, to talk about what role government should play in MiamiDade County. This community needs to move past the sound bites and into a great conversation.

family,” said Matthews. “There are a lot of exciting programs and activities to come. It starts in parks.” Salado will help coordinate events and rentals at the parks and at the community center. She also will update the Leisure Guide and Community Center calendar on the website, <www.pinecrest-fl.gov>, as well as the Facebook page. Salado was born and raised in the Pinecrest area, attending Epiphany Parish School and Lourdes Academy. She is a graduate of the University of Miami and has a degree in communications and marketing. She has worked in marketing for an investment company and also has experience as an event planner for various groups and nonprofit entities. “I’ve always attended our community events and frequented our parks,” said Salado. “As a parent and volunteer in the community, I can’t think of a better place to work.” Leatherwood has 21 years of experience in the personal training field and is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the first nationally accredited certification program in the fitness industry. He moved to Miami in 1995 from Knoxville, TN. The Pinecrest Parks and Recreation Department offers great programs, playgrounds and playing fields at parks scattered around the Village, including Coral Pine Park,

Evelyn Greer Park, Suniland, Flagler Grove, Veterans Wayside and Red Road Linear. Weekly summer camp programs are in session and continue through Aug. 20. The Pinecrest Community Center provides a focal point for residents to meet and participate in personal enrichment programs. The center offers a myriad of enrichment programs for children and adults, including dance lessons, yoga, fencing, SAT preparation classes, Chinese 101 and programs for seniors such as bridge and wellness screenings. The state-of-the-art Wellness Center offers personal training sessions or group classes, weight training, functional core training, cardio-vascular exercises, seniors’ classes and much more. Leatherwood says that new members will meet with a fitness trainer for a personal fitness and health assessment before beginning a fitness program. The center recently began a new 90membership program. “This amount of time is a comfortable commitment for people to make,” said Leatherwood. “The 90-day membership allows clients just the right amount of time to see a marked change in the quality of their fitness and health, which encourages them to continue with the program.” The Pinecrest Community Center and Wellness Center is located at 5855 SW 111 St. For details, go to <www.pinecrest-fl.gov>.

but we’re worthy of being imitated by other people looking to become accredited. We’re justifiably proud of that accomplishment. It means that we are extremely professional in our service delivery program and that our personnel exemplify the types, behaviors and traits that you would expect in a highly trained and very committed police force. “We will assist agencies because just a few years ago we were where they are now; that is, struggling to come to grips with about 500 standards that you have to show compliance with, and it can be a daunting task. We also can serve as a resource for those agencies and help them to the extent that we can, and also just encourage them that accreditation is very achievable. It’s a

lot of work, but the rewards are well worth it.” Hohensee noted that his department has not yet received notification of reaccreditation from CALLEA, but he said the “Flagship” designation was a strong indication that certification is all but certain. “We have every expectation of receiving reaccreditation,” said Hohensee. “Our final report was very complimentary and I would be shocked if there were any problems to our getting reaccredited.” Hohensee and his accreditation manager, Lt. Sam Ceballos, will journey to Las Vegas, NV on July 31 to attend the annual CALEA conference and accept the department’s reaccreditation certificate.

NICOLE BRANDFON Nicole Brandfon will enter her senior year in the International Baccalaureate program at Coral Reef Senior High School in the fall. Although the program is a rigorous one, with course study in the Humanities, the Sciences, Mathematics, Languages and Community Service, Brandfon has no doubt that this educational experience will prove to be worth the effort. “There are many days that I work on homework from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.,” said Brandfon. “But, I feel this curriculum has better prepared me for the future.” During her senior year, Brandfon will continue her volunteer efforts, adding to the over 500 hours of service she already has accumulated. As a junior, Brandfon served as chapter president of BBYO, a leading Jewish youth movement group involved in community, education, leadership and social network programs. “We focus on great projects that really make a difference for many people. We helped raise money for the Haitian relief effort by having a dinner at the JCC,” said Brandfon. “My chapter also visited the Jewish residents at The Palace every Friday after school. We really enjoyed these visits and we formed such a bond with many of the residents. We’ll continue this next year when I’m a senior.” Through BBYO, Brandfon also supported Impact’s Holocaust Theater; where student written and produced plays help pre-

vent future discrimination such as the Holocaust. Brandfon helped write and also acted in the group’s major production this year which was called Delayed and was about discrimination, hatred, tolerance and understanding. For Brandfon’s Silver Knight project, she founded her own non-profit organization, WheelCharity Foundation, Inc., to help promote awareness of the needs of people in wheelchairs. To accomplish her mission, Brandon visits different schools and educates kids through PowerPoint presentations and hands-on demonstrations. “I hope to educate society and help make life easier for people who are in wheelchairs,” said Brandfon. “I also hope to raise money and donations of wheelchairs, ramps, walkers, and canes in order to donate them to those who are less fortunate.” Brandfon has held fundraisers including a penny drive and a carnival for her cause. She’s also had the support of her sister, Hayley, and Hayley’s two friends, Anna Bensoussan and Miranda Stefano, who raised money for WheelCharity Foundation by hosting a charity party for 90 guests who all paid a $10 cover charge. The summer will continue be a busy for Brandfon. She accepted a full-time internship at The Vibe Agency, a full-service event planning agency in South Beach. She says that the position is a great opportunity to further expose her to new experiences that will continue to prepare her for the future. As Brandfon looks ahead to college, her top choices include Washington University in St. Louis or NYU, and she has plans to major in architecture. “I love art and this is a structured way to continue with that passion,” said Brandfon. “My first choice is WashU because I’ve visited the campus and loved it. I’ve heard good things about it, too, from my brother who just graduated.” By Nancy Eagleton

SIVAN SAX Sivan Sax, a senior at Sunset Senior High School, was one of 15 students from her school recognized for her outstanding academic and leadership accomplishments and nominated for a Posse Foundation scholarship. The next step in the award process is a series of rigorous interviews in August. Recipients will receive a four-year, fulltuition scholarship at one of Posse’s partnership schools. “My first choice among the partnership schools is the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania,” said Sax. “I plan on majoring in business and this is an excellent school.” Sax has been an active member of the Future Business Leaders of America since 2008, has served as activities director and was recognized with an Active Member Award. Sax also has been appointed Student Council Class Treasurer for all four years of her tenure at Sunset Senior High. The faculty at Sunset honored Sax by voting her Most Outstanding Freshman and Most Outstanding Sophomore, an award bestowed to one girl and one boy out of the

approximately 700 students in her class. In recognition of her excellent academic performance, Sax is a member of the National Honor Society and English Honor Society. She also received the Harvard Book Award, given out by the Harvard alumni to juniors and seniors who display excellence in scholarship and high character. Sax has been a Friendship Circle volunteer since she was in seventh grade. The organization provides support to special needs children by pairing teenagers with them in social programs such as Friends at Home or Teen Scene. Sax served as copresident of the organization last year and helped organize Walk 4 Friendship to raise money for the cause. “With the Friends at Home program, a partner and I would visit and spend time with a special needs child in their home twice each month. It’s been such a rewarding experience,” said Sax. “This year, I’m going to participate in Teen Scene, where many Friendship Circle volunteers meet with their special children in an organized, social setting.” Last year, Sax served as vice president of Key Club, a student-led organization with the goal of teaching leadership through serving others. During her senior year, she will serve as president. “Last September, we organized 90 volunteers in a massive clean-up effort of Kendale Lakes Park,” said Sax. “Our group also participates in the Walk for Autism and Walk 4 Friendship and other events that raise money for causes near and dear to my heart.” The well-rounded Sax earned a yellow/white belt while studying Krav Maga, a hand-to-hand self-defense discipline that was developed in Israel. She also took voice lessons for years and was awarded first place for singing in a 2009 talent show. Sax says that she loves to sing and has plans to resume her voice lessons. Sax also enjoys baking and cake decorating. She practices her creative cake decorating skills every Thursday afternoon at Clarabelle’s Cupcakes in Miami, where she works part-time. “I’ve always baked alongside my grandma and I really enjoy it,” said Sax. “The cake decorating is sort of self-taught. I have the special tools needed and I’ve learned from books and shows. Whenever, I feel a bit stressed, I’ll bake something and it always makes me happy.” By Nancy Eagleton

ADAM SARGENT Former Palmetto High School star pitcher Adam Sargent has a new place to play baseball – the University of Miami.

Sargent signed a letter of intent to play for Hurricanes at the end of June and will start school at UM in August. “It was kind of spur of the moment. It all happened in two weeks time,” Sargent says. “I’ve been a UM fan since I was two or three years old. I have a UM room. I’ve attended every single football, basketball, baseball game since forever. You can say it was sort of a dream.” Before school ended, Sargent was unsigned and planning to try out for baseball at Florida Gulf Coast University as a walkon. There had been some conversations with UM around spring break, but a dearth of scholarship funding seemed to have put the kibosh on the possibility of going there; until June and the baseball draft. “They had two kids on the team transfer, and part of the money they offered to me,” Sargent says. “They had pretty good money invested in them. They lost three kids to the draft and they had two or three kids graduate.” The fact that he will be pitching for a major college baseball team is a tribute to his determination to get back into the game after a severe injury in his junior year of

high school. “I tore my ACL in October and then had surgery in November,” Sargent says. “It was six months until I could play again.” While it was tough for him to be on the team and not be able to play, there was a silver lining to being injured. “The six months was good for me; I taught myself how to throw sidearm,” he says. “In hindsight, it was probably one of the best things that happened to me.” Sargent came back strong, going 7-3 his senior year and helped the team to a strong season. Sports have always been a big part of his life, and even his community service was primarily sports related. He volunteered at Danny Berry Baseball doing a variety of tasks, including working the concession stand and getting the fields ready for play. “Sometimes I would cook the food and make the popcorn, or make sure the coolers were filled,” he says. He also worked the President’s Day Clinics sponsored by Palmetto Bay Baseball, Inc., the baseball team’s booster club. Last year, Sargent and two of his close friends, Max Halasz and David Lee, organ-

ized a charity softball game to raise money for the American Cancer Society. “It was Palmetto baseball boys against girls’ softball,” he says. Originally, the idea was to have the boys play the girls, but then they decided to have mixed teams, with Sargent and Halasz as the captains. The game and accompanying silent auction were very successful, raising about $4,500. “We had a lot of high profile athletes and celebrities donate stuff,” Sargent says. “We had good support from or school.” The game took place a week before the Baptist Hospital Relay for Life fundraiser because they wanted to donate the money at that event. While he waits for college to start, Sargent is playing baseball for the Florida Bombers. The last week of June, the team was in Georgia for a week, playing in a tournament they have won for the last nine years. In early August, they will be in Pennsylvania for a major tournament. After that, Sargent will start college and major in sports administration. By Linda Rodriguez Bernfeld

Click, send, save. Community Newspapers and SAVESO.COM, Miami’s first mobile online coupon site, have partnered to make it easier for you to shop and save locally. You’ll “save so much” at your favorite local merchants with coupons texted to your phone from SAVESO.COM. You can also visit the Community Newspapers website at <www.communitynewspapers.com> and click “Coupons” on the menu bar to be connected to SAVESO offers. “SAVESO.COM is thrilled to partner with Community Newspapers,” said co-owner Susan Linning. “As both SAVESO and Community Newspapers focus on the local market, we are confident that our combined efforts can bring much added value to the communities and merchants we serve.” SAVESO.COM was founded in January 2010 by Rita Borbon, Miami mother of three who has a background in industrial engineering and sales. She was joined in February by business partner Susan Linning, who brings her past sales and business development skills to the partnership. Borbon wanted to save her family money, but grew weary of clipping coupons, only to leave them at home or discover that they had expired when she wanted to redeem them. “You always have your phone with you. Now, you can text yourself the coupon and you’ll always have the savings with you,” said Borbon. SAVESO.COM features over 100 local businesses, with savings organized into six categories: Restaurants, Health and Beauty, Shopping, Services, Entertainment and Kids Stuff. “Savies” are the clever name for the merchant coupons on SAVESO.COM and they are free and easy to use. Customers can choose their desired merchant, view the promotion and then text, print or email the offer to themselves, friends and family. The site features a “Deal of the Day” and customers can also sign up to receive future offers via text or email. “SAVESO provides a green solution to coupon clipping. There’s no paper for the customer to clip and no paper for the merchant to collect,” said Borbon. “The advertisers really like it. Ed’s Boot Camp says that 20 percent of his clients are coming from SAVESO.COM and they are redeeming his offer directly from their phones.” Other Health and Beauty savings are offered by Fitness Together and Cream. Restaurant partners include The Big Cheese, Fleming and Misha’a Cupcakes. Favorite merchants such as Studio LX and Gables Beauty Supply are featured. Save on servic-

Misha’s Cupcakes has been an advertiser with SAVESO for over three months and recently renewed contracts for two ads on the SAVESO site. “I see my ads there and think ‘this is a good idea.’ It’s wonderful that clients can show their phone and don’t have to feel uncomfortable. I have been impressed by how many people have come into the store with their text coupons,” said Misha KurylaGomez, owner of Misha’s Cupcakes. Borbon says that merchants can change their offer as many times as they like to find the promotion that brings them the best response. For about $2 a day, they can be a part of SAVESO.COM’s 21st century mobile marketing technology and reach customers through texting, email and online solutions. “Mobile discounts are the wave of the future and we brought that future to Miami,” Borbon said. Borbon and Linning will continue to expand to include merchants throughout Miami-Dade County and eventually in Broward County. They market their site through social media such as Facebook and Twitter and local sites such as Just Ask Boo. Like the tutorial at SAVESO.COM says, “Life is too short to be at the right place at the wrong price.” To start saving now at your favorite local merchants, visit <www.saveso.com>. Merchants who would like to advertise may contact Borbon or Linning at 877-222-2839 or email <info@saveso.com>.

Therapist helps weekend jocks recover from injury BY LINDA RODRIGUEZ BERNFELD

305-595-2127 e-mail: koski@koski-insurance.com • http://www.koski-insurance.com 9875 Sunset Drive • Miami, Florida 33173 The National Flood Insurance Program is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

One of the best ways to overcome a sports injury is by going to the right physical therapist. There are several in South Miami and one of the best is Gabriel Carvajal, owner of South Florida Rehab and Training Center, 6808 SW 81 St., Miami, FL. “My job is to help people,” Carvajal says. “I love helping people.” Carvajal has been a physical therapist for about eight years and specializes in sports medicine rehabilitation. “I work with all age groups. I specialize in sports-related injuries so my patients tend to be on the younger side,” he says. That’s not to say he’s not capable of working with grandma on her frozen shoulder or helping grandpa recover from knee-replacement surgery. Carvajal finds his work very rewarding. It’s a thrill helping an injured patient who can’t walk and getting him out of the wheelchair and back on their feet. “It’s one of the main reasons I do this for a living. I’m good at it,” he says. “It is also extremely rewarding to work with people who are active and want to remain active.” Since he deals with many athletes, he often works with athletic trainers and he actually has two on staff. “They carry the load for me as far as plan of care and therapeutic exercises of the patients,” he says. “I do all the handson of my patients.” Carvajal is an early morning kind of guy, normally starting work at 8:30 a.m. He puts in long days, finishing his work by 6:30 or 7 p.m. “Since I own my own business, I don’t put a limit on when I’m done. I will stay and see my people,” he says. The office is open Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Carvajal takes all the major insurances except for HMOs. “I’m not a high-volume facility,” he says. “I typically see eight to 10 patients a day.” That dedication to his patients helps them heal faster and is one of the reasons he wanted to strike out on his own. “My dream was, I would slow things down and I really take my time with my patients,’ he says. “An injury that might take two months, I may get the patient back two weeks early.” He specializes in baseball injuries. His interest comes from playing the

Gabriel Carvajal with professional baseball player Preston Wilson. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

sport as a kid. “So I know baseball well. When I became a physical therapist, I made it a point to make a niche and work with baseball players,” he says. Carvajal also has clients that play football and some that play basketball, including players from the Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats. “I see guys who just want tune-ups because they’ve had a long season,” he says. “It’s more personal. It’s more like I want to feel 100 percent. If it’s a big injury and there is surgery involved, then the team or the workman’s compensation insurance pays for it.” Carvajal also makes it a point to be well versed in the latest innovations in the field. “If you want to be on top, you have to put in the time, you have to do the research and you have to do the education every day,” he says. He also teaches budding physical therapists at Florida International University, which helps keep him in touch with the latest techniques. For more information, call 305-9054188 or email Carvajal at <gabito11@bellsouth.net>.

Summer get-togethers, pool parties present insurance risks BY PHILLIP LYONS Senior Vice President, InSource, Inc.

Around 32 million Americans plan to host parties this summer, many near water, according to new research by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, a major professional organization to which I belong. Yet they may not be aware of all the risks. Here are some tips to help make your summer gatherings and pool parties happy and safe: SUMMER PARTIES • It’s best to avoid alcohol consumption when swimming and limit it when entertaining by your pool. • Provide filling food for guests and alternative non-alcoholic beverages. • Schedule activities that don’t involve alcohol. • Arrange transportation or accommodations for those who should not drive. • Stop serving alcohol at least one hour before the party is scheduled to end. • Don’t serve guests who are visibly intoxicated or have drunk more than their normal limit. Although saying “no” can be awkward, consider how you’d feel if one drove away and got into an accident. Plus, you could be held responsible. • Consider hiring an off-duty police officer to discreetly monitor guests’ sobriety or handle any alcohol-related problems as guests leave. • Limit your guest list to those you know. • Stay alert, always remembering your responsibilities as a host. • Review your insurance policy with your agent before the event to ensure that you have the proper liability coverage. POOL SAFETY • Always fence in your pool, and check state

INSURANCE and local ordinances for fence height requirements. Fencing should include a gate that remains locked when the pool is not in use. As a pool owner, you are responsible and liable for anyone who comes on to your property and into your pool—even accidentally. • Always cover an empty or partially empty pool in the off-season. Serious injuries can result from children or others jumping or falling into a pool that is not full. When possible, consider an easily retractable pool cover to seal anytime the pool is not in use, even in the summer. • Never let children swim alone and keep a properly maintained supply of safety equipment in plain view of all swimmers, including life rings and other floats, lines, and a first aid kit. • Maintain the pool properly. To prevent accidents, check pools edges thoroughly at the beginning and end of each season to ensure that no tile, concrete or other material has come loose. • Always use a non-slip, quick-drying material to avoid injuries on walkways and other areas surrounding the pool. • Drowning is the Number 1 cause of death among children under five. Have a family member become Red Cross-certified to help in the event of an emergency. • Make sure that you have adequate liability insurance. For more information about insuring risks related to pools and summer entertaining, call me at 305-670-5337 or email me at <plyons@insource-inc.com>.

Phillip Lyons is senior vice president, partner and consultant with InSource, Inc., one of Miami’s largest privately held insurance firms. He may be contacted at 305-670-5337.

BY LEE STEPHENS

Pastor Kent Lee reports that the Rubber Duck Race at Christ The King Church on July 4 was a lot of fun and raised $1,400 for charity. All 700 ducks entered in the race were adopted, and the event generated $700 for Habitat for Humanity and $700 for Pinecrest Elementary School. People holding the winning numbers on the first six ducks to cross the finish line received prizes totaling $180. Several hundred people turned out to watch the little rubber ducks float their way down the Snapper Creek Canal to the finish line. Lee hopes to make the Rubber Duck Race

into an annual event that will support different charities each year. Carol and Ed Williamson, of the Williamson Automotive Group, sponsored the Duck Race. Mayor Cindy Williams was on hand to officiate the race. For more information, call 305-6655063 or go to <www.ctkmiami.org>.

Space technology helps children and adults “Play Attention” The same technology that helps astronauts stay attentive in the cockpit now helps students and adults overcome attention, concentration and focus issues. The Space Foundation announced that Play Attention from Unique Logic and Technology is recognized as a Certified Educational Product (tm) for its feedback based educational attention training system based on NASA technology.

NASA scientists developed computer systems for improving the concentration skills of astronauts and test pilots. NASA attached sensors to pilots' heads to capture their brain waves and learned to identify the kind of brain activity that occurs when a person is concentrating on a task. They developed software that lets pilots control images on a computer screen; the more the pilots focused their minds and set aside distractions, the better they performed. The Play Attention Learning System is a patented advance of the technology originally developed at NASA. "The Space Foundation is pleased to certify the Play Attention system, recogniz-

shape behavior to minimize distractions and improve focus. “Both NASA and Play Attention have proven that feedback-based learning empowers individuals to deal with their personal challenges by increasing mental capacity and skill," said Peter Freer, chief executive officer of Unique Logic and Technology. "This produces a sense of accomplishment, self-worth, and success. We owe NASA a great debt." Play Attention is currently in use in the United States, Puerto Rico, China, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Taiwan, South America, and Europe.

ing the technology advances and applications Unique Logic and Technology made to help students and adults overcome attention disorders," said Kevin Cook, director of Space Technology Awareness for the Space Foundation. The Play Attention system uses a helmet containing special sensors that accesses brainwaves indicative of focus and cognitive processing. The sensory information is fed into a small interface system that attaches to the user's home computer. Users complete a series of video game-like exercises (cognitive exercises), that are controlled by the mind alone, seeing and hearing real-time feedback of how they are progressing in focusing and finishing tasks. Children, as well as adults, use their minds to make screen characters fly, swim, jump, and more. With practice they learn to apply these skills to educational objectives such as reading, completing tasks on time and attentive listening. A Play Attention coach helps

‘Open Road Tolling’ is taxation without representation BY ROBIN KORTH

Don’t you just love it? The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) will start levying tolls on state roads for OUR benefit. I do not recall being asked if I wanted to be taxed for my welfare, do you? This “tax for the improvement of your driving experience” goes into effect on July 17. The roads covered by MDX include: State roads 924 Gratigny Parkway; 874 Don Shula Expressway; 878 Snapper Creek Expressway; 112 Airport Expressway; and 836 Dolphin Expressway. Have I been living under a rock or listening to the radio too extensively as I drive across these roads? Where was the timely and official announcement of this new “revenue stream” from the MDX? I have seen the “sprinkler-like” extensions quietly going up across these roads — rather like insects in the night — for more than three months. But it is only now, less than two weeks before the system will start, that any information signs have appeared on these roads to inform us what we are in for. The “just-before-launch-date” bright green information signs that now “helpfully” direct me to visit <www.mdxort.com> are a little late in coming. If this new “Open Road Tolling” is so darned wonderful, why were they not celebrating the fact well in advance? Blowing their own horns? Letting us know how munificent is their care and concern for us, the beleaguered drivers? Also, how much are these “automotive quality of life” improvement tolls going to cost me as, like a herd animal, I simply follow the poor schmuck in front of me and get electronically “dinged?” Is this a dimeding or a dollar-ding? There is no definitive

OPINION answer. The MDX website, with wonderful videos and graphics (I wonder what that “dinged” us?), informs the inquiring mind that each driver will pay their “fair” share for the roads that we drive. On July 5, I entered SR 874 off of S.W. 112 St. and headed north to SR 878, going east to exit at SW 72 Avenue. I went under three toll-levying devices! Must be some really valuable roadway I was using. I won’t have a clue what this little venture will cost me until I check my Sunpass. Is there a way to actually check your Sunpass and see what kind of bang you are getting for your buck? What I find even more disturbing is the lack of being “disturbed” by the MiamiDade populace. What is going on? Why has no one asked about this tax; queried the “thief in the night” installation of the electronic tolling mechanisms? Is it all okay now because we are informed after the fact that we will now be taxed to use roads that we have already paid for? We just celebrated the Fourth of July; the remembrance of America’s cry for independence from a government that continually imposed new taxes without our agreement. Isn’t there something about “taxation without representation” that lies at the very core of our country’s foundation? The silence of this community regarding this affair is more than disheartening. It is downright terrifying!

Dealing with downed power lines BY KENT CROOK

President, Wiremasters Electric When a hurricane or a nearhurricane comes through our metro area, the newspapers predictably print stories of people who survived the storm but killed themselves by coming in contact with downed power lines after the storm. With the goal of saving your life, I offer some basic facts you need to know about power lines and how to deal with them. Power poles are shared by utility, cable, and telephone companies. A downed electrical line can energize the other lines as well. Even non-conductive materials such as pieces of wood can become a path for electricity. Metal security fences can become electrified fences, creating a death trap if you come in contact with them. The basic rule is: Stay away from downed power lines. Don’t try to move them out of your way. If you’re driving, don’t try to drive around them during or immediately following a hurricane. Don’t drive over the lines because if your car makes contact, it can become energized. In such a case, stay in your car, roll your window down to call for

help or use your cell phone to dial 911. If the car makes contact with a downed power line and catches on fire, the way you exit the car will determine whether you live to tell about it. Open the car’s door and stand on the floorboard of the car. Then jump away from the vehicle with both feet together, landing as far as possible from the car. Don’t hang on to any part of the car during the jump, including the car handle. You may have noticed that after the hurricane passes through your area, you will see streets covered with tree branches and litter. Power lines have a way of getting entangled with these branches, becoming a serious hazard for the person trimming the branches with a chainsaw. Litter debris — such as a lawn chain, a piece of metal siding or a ladder — can present hidden dangers. Before you do any yard cleanup, take a thorough look at your surroundings. As a safety precaution, have someone with you so that if you come in contact with energized power lines, that person can call for help. Power lines on the street or in your yard can be killers. Use common sense to survive the storm and that tricky period after the storm. For more information, call 305-378-4011 or go to <www.kcwiremasters.com>.

2011 Bentley Supersports Convertible a ‘drop top’ to die for

Ron Beasley AUTOMOTIVE EDITOR

LET’S TALK CARS I recently had the pleasure of attending the international press preview in Telluride, CO, for the new 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, a nifty piece of automotive hardware that will hit American showrooms in September with a base price of $280,400. Yes, that’s correct, there is not an extra zero in that figure. For that tidy little figure, you get an amazingly agile automobile that’s powered by a 621-hp twin-turbocharged W-12 engine (12/19 mpg) mated to a revised ZF 6HP26 automatic transmission with Quickshift that cuts shift times by 50 percent and enables double downshifts. The powerplant delivers 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, 0-100 in 9.6 seconds and rockets to a top speed of 202 mph. That’s the fact sheet for this latest addition to the storied Bentley Motors stable of luxury automobiles, and Bentley executives are patting themselves on the back and crowing that the new Supersports Convertible is the fastest,

most potent drop top the company has ever made. It’s also unmistakably Bentley in its design, from the distinctive center air intake and vertical grilles that feed a 10 percent larger air volume to the turbocharger intercoolers and hood vents that draw hot air from the engine bay. To the rear, curved wheel arches accommodate the increased rear track of the upgraded chassis and give the car a muscular stance. A fixed spoiler and twin elliptical tailpipes add to the rear styling. Inside, the four-seat interior is driverfocused and wrapped in luxury, with satinfinished carbon fiber Alcantara and soft-grip leather for a distinctly sporting and contemporary style. The lightweight carbon fiber sports seats hold occupants in place and shave 99 pounds from the car’s weight. As for the Colorado ride-and-drive, the Bentley marketing team put together a spectacular 200-mile route along the scenic San Juan Skyway that the took the auto writers from upstate Telluride to the historic town of Durango in southwestern Colorado. It was the perfect highway to test the mettle of the new Supersports Convertible with its new 40/60 rear-biased torque split all-wheel drive system. The system reduced understeer when powering out of curves and provided better acceleration and control with “throttle steering.”

Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible has vertical grilles, functional air intake, curved wheel arches, a fixed rear spoiler and elliptical tailpipes.

The climbing, mountainous driving route also showcased the new Bentley SC’s re-tuned Continuous Damping Control (CDC) system with stiffer suspension bushes, upgraded rear anti-roll bar, improved body control, steering response and overall balance. The increased twoinch rear track gives the SC more stability, while lightweight 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels reduce overall weight by 22 pounds. Road-gripping Pirelli 275/35 ZR20 Ultra High Performance tires are

standard, as are carbon-ceramic brakes for fade-free braking. Like all other Continentals in the Bentley lineup, the new Supersports Convertible, runs on both gasoline and E85 bioethanol, or any combination of the two.

How Do You Get Ready For a Move to a Senior Living Community? BY HELEN SHAHAM Q. My wife and I have lived in our home for more than 40 years. Home maintenance and upkeep problems are becoming a bit overwhelming. We’re considering a move to a Senior Living community, but the thoughts of downsizing and moving cause us too much anxiety. Please help. Where do we begin? A. Often, the appeal of moving to a new Senior Living community is overshadowed by the practicality of having to downsize from a current home filled with a lifetime of treasures and memories. Communities such as The Palace understand that change is sometimes a challenge and have a wealth of resources to make the transition as smooth as possible. Many Senior Living communities offer an on-site move-in coordinator and referrals to a third-party senior relocation companies and specialists so there is always someone to guide you through every phase of the process. Typically, a moving guide —specific to the community—is available in the marketing office. It addresses the most common concerns faced by seniors preparing to downsize and provides a detailed timeline of steps to accomplish in the time leading to the move. The guide may include telephone numbers (post office, utility companies, telephone service providers, etc.) that can be helpful to your move. In addition, an objective third party is usually extremely beneficial since such a move involves many emotional memories. Ask the staff at the Senior Living community to provide you with a list of relocation companies they recommend. These companies offer a variety of services such as organizing; sorting; arranging for the disposal of unwanted items through auction, estate sale or consignment; professional packing; arranging shipments; moving; unpacking and setting up of the new home. Finally, ask the community for help from their on-site move-in coordinator. This person, if you so wish, will visit your home, provide you with floor plans with dimensions and help you figure out which of your furniture will best fit in your new apartment. Try to view the process as a new beginning. You’re not downsizing; rather you’re right-sizing your life. It’s the perfect time to start fresh, eliminate clutter, and share a few of your cherished possessions with your family. At The Palace’s communities, residents actually welcome the opportunity to create a new

look—fresh furnishings and décor—and are excited about the prospect of their new lifestyle and experiences. Residents often personalize their apartments to create a home-like environment or reflect their own personal styles and tastes. Margot Siegel, a resident at The Palace Suites, our Independent Senior Living Community, is a perfect example. A noted journalist, author and curator, Margot describes her residence as “truly contemporary”. Her home features her private collection of art and fashion including Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse handbags and Andy Warhol paintings. It’s important to remember that while most seniors are downsizing their individual residences, there is an entire community beyond an apartment’s four walls. Palace communities have a beautiful grand “living room” called The Plaza, a bar, two dining rooms (one of them is an elegant Private Dining room), extensive library with computers, a theater, a fitness center, a beauty salon, and much more. Prospective residents usually realize that there is no need to maintain an extensive home library, exercise room or a fully equipped kitchen. The entire community is there for them! The value of a Senior Living community cannot be measured in square footage alone! Downsizing can certainly be an overwhelming process; however, remember to focus on all the benefits of your new home: first and foremost is your Peace of Mind (remember, hurricane season has just started and what about medical emergencies?); a Carefree, Secure and Comfortable lifestyle; new friendships; and the unlimited opportunities for social, educational and cultural activities. If you have questions about the lifestyle changes that go with aging, or if you’d like to be invited to a social event at The Palace Suites, please send a note to Helen Shaham, The Palace Suites, 11377 S.W. 84th St., Miami, Florida 33173, call her at 305-270-7020, or email helen@thepalace.org.

Helen Shaham and her husband, Jacob, have been operating Senior Living Communities for the past 30 years. The Palace Suites in Kendall is a luxury Independent Living Community for active seniors. In addition, The Palace at Kendall campus is home to two Assisted Living Residences and a Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. They also operate The Palace Gardens Assisted Living Community in Homestead, Homestead Manor Nursing Home and The Palace @ Home, a Medicare Certified Home Health Agency. Their two newest projects are The Palace at Weston – Luxury Living for Those 55 and Over and The Palace Tel-Aviv, a Continuing Care Retirement Community in Israel. They have two communities under development – The Palace at Coral Gables and The Palace at Weston Senior Living. More information can be obtained by calling 305-271-2220 or by visiting The Palace website at www.ThePalace.org.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;all in the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BY NANCY EAGLETON

Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a family-owned restaurant operated by two sisters, Monica Gill and Carol Bermudez. When you visit for dinner, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be rewarded with delicious fresh specialties prepared by Chef Monica and warm, welcoming service from Carol. Chef Monica holds a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree from Johnson & Wales and takes great pride in every dish she makes, all homemade and prepared to order with the freshest ingredients. Customer favorites include Eggplant Parmigianino, Chicken Pappagallo, Tilapia Francese, classic pasta dishes and more, all served with a house salad and warm bread. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monica is known for her fish specialties,â&#x20AC;? said Bermudez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our customers rave about the way she prepares fish.â&#x20AC;? Just in case youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried the 14 fish entrĂŠes and everything else on the menu, Chef Monica offers specials every weekend, including a soup, entrĂŠes and dessert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monica gets a bit creative with the specials and they often match her mood for the weekend,â&#x20AC;? said Bermudez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her sense of humor is sometimes displayed on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Specialsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; board, too. Many of our customers visit on the weekends to try something new.â&#x20AC;? To keep up with the weekend specials, go to Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Facebook and choose â&#x20AC;&#x153;like it.â&#x20AC;? Watch for news of the Thursday night happy hour coming soon, which will feature appetizers and beer and wine specials. On Tuesday nights, choose the lucky $13 meal specials that include a choice of one of six entrĂŠes, salad, side, coffee or tea and a small dessert. Families will enjoy the â&#x20AC;&#x153;family packâ&#x20AC;?, which includes a choice of one of 10 entrĂŠes, bread and salad for four. Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also offers a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu with 10 choices, including mini versions from the main menu, as well as traditional kid friendly choices. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable, great for an early or late dinner, and also offers take-out and

G N I N DI OUT home and office catering. Coral Gables resident Marie McClure says Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is favorite restaurant and she and her husband dine there frequently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just love Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The food is homey Italian and you can just tell that it is made with love,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sisters and the staff are always so genuinely happy to see you and they make you feel like family. I love it so much I even had them cater my holiday luncheon.â&#x20AC;? The two sisters and family members opened Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 12153 S. Dixie Hwy., in December 2006 and Bermudez says it was a dream come true for her sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was her dream to have her own restaurant. I thought why not help my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream come true instead of working to make someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream come true,â&#x20AC;? said Bermudez. Kaliapy was a name that Gill planned to give her baby if she had a girl. Family members agree that it was a blessing that she had a boy, but decided the name was a good choice for this baby, the family restaurant. Bermudez has three children and both sisters are single parents doing what they love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We strive to deliver the highest quality food with fresh ingredients at a great value,â&#x20AC;? said Bermudez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want everyone to have a great experience and we really care about the people who visit us.â&#x20AC;? Kaliapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday at 5 p.m. For more information, call 305-2527337 and to view the entire menu, go to <www.kaliapys.com>.
