Iâ€™ve never seen so many large tables of 15 or more in any restaurant on one night. Then I went to Ouzo Blue on Lake Avenue and their famous Saturday night â€œLadies Drink Free from 9-11pmâ€? was kicking in. Girls were dancing on the bar, the tables and the laps of lucky guys!

MONTHLY MUSIC SCENE
erveza is back at Sunfest and I don’t mean the drinking kind. Have no fear. The cold, wet, drinkable and satisfying cerveza will be plentiful. Thank goodness. If you were fortunate to attend Sunfest 2008, and even more fortunate to hear the incredible Ska band Cerveza rocking north float in more ways than one, you will be glad to hear they have graduated to the main stage and will appear along email@example.com with the big guys. Few bands are able to say they were invited to play Sunfest two years in a row. Like a pied piper, Cerveza has the following of most of PBCC, along with the southern portion of the county. Cerveza was my first real experience with a SKA band. I remarked then, ‘These kids are going somewhere.’ Lead and bass guitars, drums, and horns a plenty; a sax, two trumpets and trombone make a lot of noise coming together in a multi-cultural mix of contagious sound. Originating in Jamaica in the 1960s, on to Trinidad in the 70s, Ska slowly made its way through the Caribbean absorbing island flavors along the way and combining elements of American jazz and R&B. This group is not just out having fun. Cody Maxwell, guitar, and drummer Ryan Cross are both Eagle Scouts. Two out of seven are still in high school. The remaining five attend PBCC. John Provenzano, Daniel Roddenberry, Andrew White and Matt Patsis stand behind the brass. Holding up the bass is Nick Kiriazis. Cerveza means beer. It also means young talent on their way to stardom. Log on to www.sunfest.com for complete entertainment lineup. New Music Night entertainment is finalized. For New Music entertainment schedule, log on to www.sunfest.com/newmusic. Band Jams! If you are new to Palm Beach County, be aware that live musical entertainment is available every day of the week. Band jams are plentiful in all directions. Musicians and bands from everywhere are welcome to come and share their talents. North County includes CORNERS on Indiantown Road. Every Tuesday night, enjoy acoustic open-mic hosted by Gary Frost from 8:30 PM until he turns into a pumpkin. Beginning every Wednesday starting April 29th, PJs in Tequesta with Vince Flora of Big Vince and the Phat Cats hosting, from 9 until midnight. Play that harp Vince. AVERAGE JOEs on Indiantown Road, Thursday nights beginning at 9 and hosted by, there’s that Gary Frost of The Faders again. The south end includes HOME RUN SPORTS BAR at Lantana and Jog from 9 pm until. CONNOLLYS’s located at the west end of Belvedere Road at US 441 also beginning at 9 pm. Hosts unknown at this time. Further down south on Tuesday nights enjoy jamming at ELWOODS in Delray with R & B Band hosting. Music starts at 8:30 PM give or take a few minutes. I appreciate all jamming info and would ask that you send it to my email address. firstname.lastname@example.org. I will continue to post “jammin” news as space allows. Thanks to everyone who has been sending some great information! Next month’s list is already getting lengthy.

The Riviera Beach Political Slime Machine Marches On by Fane Lozman Commissioners W Dawn Pardo, Judy Davis, and Cedrick ill
Thomas join their comrades in corruption who were busted from the Fane Lozman Palm Beach County Commission? Why would they stand by and condone the abusive behavior of City staff towards long term tenants at the City marina, which included the turning off of electricity to tenants, one struggling with cancer who had her $3000 bone marrow injection go bad due to the lack of refrigeration? The simple reason is that they want the marina devoid of those working class tenants with lower quality boats that do not meet the “elitist” atmosphere that is their vision for what had been a facility for the “general public”. I have paid a high personal and financial price for fighting the corruption that makes up the political infrastructure of Riviera Beach politics. My latest battle has been chronicled by Bob Norman of the Broward Palm Beach New Times. I encourage any comments to be forwarded to me at 2100 Broadway, Riviera Beach, FL 33404. Thanks.
Marshals seize Fane Lozman's home Photo courtesy of Fane Lozman
The following story is courtesy of the Broward Palm Beach New Times. Feds Seize Man’s Home, Tow It Away By Bob Norman Tuesday, Apr. 21 2009 Federal marshals stole city activist Fane Lozman’s home yesterday. In a true jack-booted thug moment, four armed marshals in black raided Lozman’s houseboat at the Riviera Beach Municipal Marina and towed it down to Miami, leaving Lozman homeless and without all his possessions. They also seized the former U.S. Marine pilot’s three guns, which he owns legally. Lozman’s only crime: fighting city hall. “I don’t even have any clothes to wear, man,” said Lozman, who has been paying rent to live at the city marina for three years. “All my clothes are on my homesteaded floating home. I’m just glad my dog wasn’t on there.” The marshals seized the floating home just hours after the City of Riviera Beach filed a federal complaint
against Lozman claiming his boat didn’t legally belong at the marina. Before Lozman had any chance to answer the complaint -- in fact, before he was even served with the papers -- U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas signed an order to seize it. The same afternoon, the federal agents raided the home and took it away. The Palm Beach Post covered the basics in a story this morning. The hasty action by Dimitrouleas is stunning -- and unconscionable. How, in this country, can a citizen’s home be taken away without any due process, without even the chance to state his case? Unfortunately, Dimitrouleas probably relied solely on the city’s faulty complaint and didn’t know the real story. The city, after all, has had a longstanding grudge with Lozman, who has been fighting the takeover of the historic city marina near Peanut Island by developers. Then-Mayor Michael Brown, a ridiculously corrupt politico, was bent on giving the marina and a good part of the city to Viking Yacht Co. and Wayne Huizenga to turn it into a playground for the wealthy. To do that the city planned to use eminent domain to remove hundreds of residents from their homes. Lozman, a dogged activist if ever there was one, was one of those residents. Lozman filed suit against the city and found a powerful ally in his fight, then-Gov. Jeb Bush. In the end, Lozman almost single-handedly killed the $2.4 billion plan (which likely would have been a disaster considering today’s economy). And that apparently earned him the undying enmity of city officials. In what can only be described as pure political retribution, city police began harassing Lozman and the city sued him for eviction. The city trumped up some ludicrous reasons to try to kick Lozman out of the marina (including the absurd allegation that his little dachsund, Lady, was a menace to society). It would have been funny if it wasn’t such a raw abuse of public power. Lozman represented himself in court on that case and, for the first time in my career, I voluntarily took the witness stand. I saw the harassment first-hand and, in fact, came under brief threat of arrest myself simply for standing near the dock. It was pure vengeance on the part of the city. Lozman, a 40-something millionaire who made his money in the stock market, put on a passionate case to save his home. This may sound maudlin, but I was never more proud to live in America on the day the jury found
in Lozman’s favor. But the city wasn’t done. The city and developer Viking were still planning a takeover of the marina and -- partly for revenge and partly just to make sure Lozman doesn’t stop them again -- they still wanted Lozman out. So they came up with a new rule designed to get rid of him and other residents (all the liveaboards must go sooner or later to satisfy Viking’s takeover plan). The city demanded that all boats in the marina have propulsion so that they can vacate in the event of an emergency. Lozman’s boat, which is homesteaded, is a floating structure, a home on the water, not a vessel. It can’t go anywhere on its own. Lozman refused to sign the agreement, saying he was grandfathered in and that it was just another unlawful attempt to take away his home (and the homes of other live-aboards at the marina). And that refusal was the basis the city used yesterday to have the feds seize his home (the city also claimed Lozman had failed to pay rent, failing to mention that officials had mailed Lozman back his April rent payment). Before Monday’s dramatic development, the city had used another method to try to run off Lozman and a handful of other boaters who hadn’t signed the B.S. agreement: It cut off power to their boats. “(Riviera Beach) officials should have given us notice,” fellow live-aboard Vaughn Frye told the Palm Beach Post at the time. “I had no bathroom, no air-conditioning, no refrigeration. They told me I was in breach of contract.” On Friday, Judge Peter Evans, who oversaw Lozman’s eviction trial, ruled that the city must restore power to the boats. That’s when the city filed the federal complaint and Judge Dimitrouleas (who presided over the Ken Jenne case) instantaneously signed the order to seize Lozman’s home. I am hoping that Dimitrouleas will research this matter, look at the state eviction case, reverse his action, and turn his attention to the city. As it stands, the judge’s order is a travesty. Lozman said last night that he’ll fight the city to the end. He spent last night writing an emergency motion to dismiss the city’s complaint and, as I press send on this post, was driving to federal court in Fort Lauderdale to file it. “I am going to have to march back into court and try to talk [Judge Dimitrouleas] out of doing what he’s doing,” he said. “I just want to educate the court on the real facts of the situation. It’s outrageous that this can happen in America.”

NOWbout ADVERTISING FOR BUSINESS 16 months ago word started spreading about a swingers hotel
Your Hosts Francois & Judy Welcome You
opening in Hollywood. Broward County, Florida’s capital of swinging, was being pushed to the extreme with a new swingers hotel concept. The location, right on Ocean Drive in Hollywood Beach features a roof-top pool that has been the subject of aerial photos on the internet. The entire hotel building is clothing-optional, along with the roof-top pool area. Called the “Rooftop Resort” they have just started a massive advertising campaign to get the word out. Some locals suspect their next guests will the Broward Sheriffs office or some right-wing anti-sex lifestyle citizens groups. Locals in Hollywood claim the “whole beach area is sleazy” as the Adult Video companies flock to the massive Diplomat Hotel every summer for their “convention” and porno companies have set up shop at locations up and down the beach, constantly being sighted filming scenes outdoors. On the internet, the Diplomat Hotel is in plain sight, along with many Hollywood Beach hi-rise condos in porn scenes. One industry executive from California’s San Fernando Valley, long the world-wide center of porn production told me - “Hollywood Beach is what the Valley was 10 years ago, the difference is the business there is growing at 20 times the rate of what the Valley experienced.” At least one industry is growing in Florida. Watch your step when walking the beach in Hollywood! Palm Beach love triangle talk of the town..........So much money, so many women, so many headaches. The millionaire widow of diet-king Dr. Robert Atkins is close to being blacklisted on the Palm Beach Social scene according to insiders. At a recent Birthday Bash for millionaire Pantone hair products honcho Lawrence Herbert, Veronica Atkins “went bonzo” according to a Palm Beach socialite in attendance. Veronica Atkins is fighting the “other woman” complex in regards to her recent marriage to Alexis Mersentes, who many allege is nothing more than a gold-digger of the worst mold. Former Worth Avenue shop owner and stunning blond bombshell Ildiko Varga claims she was the kept woman of Mersentes, who used Veronica Atkin’s money to keep her on a monthly allowance, so she was available for sex sessions with Mersentes whenever he called. She claims she even had sex with Mersentes on the day he married Veronica. Inviting both of these women to the same party is a sure way to make the event memorable. That hasn’t happened yet but someone made the mistake of inviting both Atkins and Michael Griffith, who is Ildiko Varga’s attorney in the lawsuit she’s filed against Mersentes for cutting off her cash flow. The result was explosive, with Veronica Atkins allegedly letting go a string of profanity directed at Griffith while Mersentes stood by her side trying to calm her down in the Breakers Hotel Ballroom. A redfaced Atkins was allegedly asked to leave the room, while those in attendance discussed her behavior for the rest of the evening. Stay tuned. Floridians paying for extravagance at FPL..........Recent filings with the SEC show that Florida Power & Light executives are living like kings while claiming poverty and asking us for a huge rate increase. FPL CEO Lewis Hay, while the rest of nation was mired in recession, raised his pay 9.5% from 2007 and got a whopping $11.7 million in pay & benefits. That’s $225,000.00 a week! FPL President Armando Olivera paid himself $3.6 million. He scraped by on $69,230 a week. As I told you in this column a few months ago these pirates continue to charge us a “Storm Charge” every month, adding hundreds of millions to the company coffers, even though there has not been a major storm in years. Then there are the listings of the numerous and outrageous personal expenses being paid for by you & me. To have their annual physical exam, rather than going somewhere here in town the FPL executives used the company jet and flew somewhere, with the company picking up the tab for lodging, meals and travel. We also paid for their personal cars, personal country club memberships, personal home security systems and CEO Hay even had the audacity to charge the company $45,999.00 for changes his attorney made to his own employment contract. You might think at $225K a week he could pay for his own negotiating representative, but you & I paid for that. Remember all this when they raise our rates this summer, they’ll most likely raise their pay as well. Kravis Center’s bad reputation lives on...........Palm Beacher Henry Kravis is well known among labor leaders as a rat-faced pig. Kravis has a reputation for screwing American workers when he uses his Wall Street tactics to get control of companies and destroy them to line his own pocket. Now our local arts-performance center, the Kravis Center, is using his business practices. The Kravis Center has been in a long running feud with the Stagehands union, a strike action that has lasted years due to Kravis management refusing to pay living wages to their workers, who set up the shows that the gilded rich come to be entertained by. Now a recent collapse of scaffolding has seriously hurt workers and OSHA has fined the contractors the Kravis Center hired close to $10,000 for violating safety standards. Again preferring cheap non-union contractors who hire unskilled immigrants, OSHA found the contractors had them working on scaffolding frames not properly braced which were set up by workers who were not properly trained and without any qualified scaffolding supervisor, and had workers handling hazardous chemicals without respirators or training on how to protect themselves. The result was about 15 workers being rained on by scaffolding when the thing collapsed. The Kravis Center is another example of the

"What mainstream media won't tell you"
By Hutton Carter, III
greedy rich exploiting others with no regard for anything but profit, even if it means serious physical injury or our citizens being paid sub-standard poverty wages. Ft. Lauderdale Police Chief’s gun-toting wife...........Is getting unbelievable special treatment. Eleanor Adderley, the wife of Police Chief Frank Adderley, held a gun, shot at her husband while he lay sleeping, then when he awoke and ran away she followed him and took two more shots at him. She was upset when she discovered he was having a sexual affair with another woman. Under Florida law she faces a mandatory 20-year prison sentence. After multiple delays (it happened in 2007) her attorney and her powerful Police Chief husband are negotiating a plea deal with State prosecutors. Anyone else (without money or connections) would have already gone to trial and been sent away, as the facts are undisputable - she admitted to firing at him. We’ll see what punishment she gets. I can understand her being upset, I can understand her husband using his power to help her. That does not make it right. She was a great one........... She first appeared as the wholesome model on the box of Ivory Snow. One of thousands of pretty young girls who move to Hollywood to become famous, her star did shine bright, but not as she planned. After getting the Ivory Snow gig, work dried up and she drifted to San Francisco where she hooked up with two brothers who were opening a theatre downtown. Jim & Artie Mitchell became famous, some say, for inventing the video porn industry. Their first star was the Ivory Snow girl and a movie called “Behind the Green Door.” Proctor & Gamble was unaware of her starring in the movie and rushed to pull the Ivory Snow boxes off shelves when they found out. She would go on to make hundreds of blue movies and the films took off when video players became available to most of America in the 1970’s. She was now a star, enjoying fame in L.A. and living the fast life. Two months ago she was in NYC, meeting with a Broadway producer who signed her for a play about the original blue hit Deep Throat. She returned to L.A. and had a massive heart attack, dying alone with her dog & two cats. She was working at an animal shelter - she always loved animals. But this play “Deep Throat The Play” was her ticket back to a cash flow. Marilyn Chambers, only 56, was an original, one of the first stars along with John Holmes & Linda Lovelace in the blue business. Playboy Magazine ranked her in the top 100 sex stars of the 20th Century. She leaves behind her daughter, McKenna, 17 and attending her prom this year. Marilyn also leaves behind the modeling industry’s “Marilyn Chambers clause” which forbids models from appearing in nude photos or porn movies of any kind while under contract. A memorial was held in L.A. on April 22. What they won’t tell you.........About 120 miles from Spokane is a place called Hanford. It’s this country’s biggest plutonium production complex, about half the size of Maryland. The plutonium that exploded on Nagasaki came from Hanford. In 1991, nearly 2,000 local residents filed a lawsuit regarding their community, which was contaminated by radiation that came from the plant, resulting in death and disease for 2 generations. Our government has picked up the legal tab for defense contractors and spent about $60 million in attorneys fees defending the lawsuit, so far not one sick person still alive has received a penny in compensation.......The government prosecution of the W.R. Grace & Company in what many say is the nations biggest environmental disaster in history is half over, after nearly 20 years of litigation. The prosecution called it’s final witness last week in the case involving over 1,200 workers going back to 1963 in Libby, Montana. The company and five former executives are charged with knowingly exposing workers and the public to vermiculite ore contaminated with asbestos, Libby is the worlds biggest vermiculite mine and supplied 80% of the product, used in insulation and contaminated with asbestos, all over the planet. Have you heard about.............Natalie Cole, Nat King Cole’s daughter, is desperately trying to find a kidney donor. Her kidneys are diseased from years of heroin abuse and contracting the Hepatitis C virus from dirty needles.........That Filmmaker Edmund Druilhet is doing a documentary called “Madoff: Made Off With America” which will detail Madoff’s life from childhood to thief.........A book coming in July -“The Supremes: A Saga of Motown Dreams, Success and Betrayal” will detail Diana Ross’s backstabbing and sleeping with record executives to make it to the top and get airplay for her solo records..........That Paul Newman was a hopeless alcoholic, wearing a bottle opener on a chain on his neck and drinking more than a case of beer a day, and that many women he had on the side left him because he could not perform in bed due to constant drunkenness...........A new study shows that Florida right now has over 50,000 homeless children, mostly in Dade & Broward county..............That several biker gang meth-dealers have left town, giving up on this area after being unable to move product - they learned this is a disco-dust town, not meth-head bangers.........That 3 major escort service operators from Miami have started operating out of Jupiter, promising “30-minute arrival guarantees” to Palm Beach & Jupiter Island clients...........

ket in Palm Beach County reached the bottom? And everyone has a different opinion. Let’s look at the data trends provided by the Florida Association of Realtors: 1. In March 2007, nearly 27,000 houses and condos were on the market in Palm Beach County. By March 2009, that number had fallen to fewer than 22,000, a drop of 18 percent. A good trend but still substantial inventory remains. Marilyn D. Peirce 2. Palm Beach County sales rose and prices stopped falling in March providing a rare glimmer of good housing market news. The median price of an existing single-family home in Palm Beach County held at $228,100, unchanged from February, though still down 29 percent from a year ago. The number of sales rose to 685, up 20 percent from a year ago. 3. The sharp decline in condo prices also slowed, although condo values have plunged to less than half their boom-time values. The median condo price in Palm Beach County was $99,800, down slightly from February's $101,900. The number of condo sales was up 17 percent from a year ago. We are seeing increased volume at the expense of price – signs that the Buyers market is still alive and strong. Aggressively priced homes are getting Buyers attention. This logical cycle is critical to the bottoming out of the market. Falling home prices are going to bring us out of the bottom on the long and probably slow reverse cycle to the top. SHORT SALES ARE LONG SALES – BE PATIENT! Short sales are here to stay for a while – so what exactly are they? In a short sale, a mortgage lender agrees to let an underwater borrower off the hook by forgiving a substantial part of the homeowner's debt. Say a borrower owes $300,000 on a condo whose value has fell to $200,000 – if the owners sells the condo on their own, they would be required to write a check for $100,000 to the lender at the closing table. In a short sale, the lender agrees to accept $200,000 and lets the borrower walk away from the $100,000 difference. It is good business to avoid foreclosing for both the Lender and the Seller. What is not good business is that lenders are taking far too long processing and approving short sales, and more often than not, the delayed decision-making results in the deal falling apart resulting in countless wasted hours of work and frustrated Sellers and Buyers. The National Association of Realtors reported that last year nearly 40 percent of transactions nationwide were short sales and foreclosures and in our local Regional Multiple Listing Service, pending short sales are running at the same 40 percent rate. If underwater homeowners want to sell, a short sale can seem the best option. If Lenders want to avoid piling up foreclosures on their books, they should be directed to stop dragging their feet and work with the real estate market to write down the loans and get them off the books which will stabilize the market. Foreclosures are much more costly to the lender and the seller than short sales. So, if you are upside down with your mortgage, call your lender – call your Realtor – consult with a qualified Real Estate Attorney and Accountant – this may be a viable option for you too. SELLING? BUYING? LEASING? TIMING IS EVERYTHING!
