THE DEFINITION OF STYLE & SUBSTANCE IN NORTHWOOD
In 2002 a new day dawned in Northwood when Chef Terry Marince & Matt Reber opened the Sunset Grill. It was a major step in beginning the revitalization of an entire neighborhood. As this decade closes the landmark location of this building, which originated in 1935, lives on in culinary glory. There is no other building in town that has been cared for so artistically and the newest look is spectacular. To celebrate the new season Chef Terry has announced a new Prix Fix Dinner featuring Soup or Salad, a choice of Entree, Dessert and a glass of Wine, Coffee or Tea for only $24.95! This deal is good any night, all night for the entire month of December. If you enjoy sunset dinners come try the original at the Sunset Grill. For only $14.95 you’ll get three gourmet courses from 5-6:30 Tuesday to Saturday night. Over the years many romances, friendships and business deals have sprouted at the famous Sunset Grill Bar. To celebrate the coming of

For many years in this town when you wanted to take a walk on the wild side the El Cid was the place. This famed landmark lounge across from the P.B. Post building on Dixie has been re-opened by Michael Boggiano and they will have a huge party December 15th with an open bar from 7-9PM. The entire space has been updated and redone with lots of flat screen TV’s, a huge bar, plenty of cozy seating in booths & pool tables in the back room. There’s also a new restaurant serving food all night and doing a great lunch special for only $5.95 during the week. Wednesday is Pizza Day with $10 Pizza’s including 3 toppings all day & night. The longest Happy Hour in town has returned from 11AM to 7PM with drink specials on Well’s & Domestic Beers. The El Cid has the Sunday Ticket with all the NFL games and Saturday & Monday is College Night with Beer Pong starting at 10PM along with 25-cent Wings and $5 Pitchers. Sundays at 7PM it’s Open Jam with the El Cid Band and lots of local musicians sitting in. The crowd at El Cid has been heavy with good looking girls and Rock Star types with a Palm Beach presence after 9PM every night. See page 2 and make plans to be at the Grand Opening! Here are two great deals on two big nights - Friday & Sunday. Sunday at the fabulous Thai Jo City Place you will get a Live Maine Lobster for only $10.95! And that low price includes 2 sides! Who said eating lobster was just for the rich? You have to call and make reservations and mention the Palm Beach Sun price of only $10.95. I don’t know how much longer this deal will last so call now to get this unbelievable bargain! If you like going out on Friday nights after getting paid and blowing a ton of cash this deal ain’t for you. If you like going out on Friday night and getting your fill of Martinis, Beer and California Rolls and paying only $1 for each of them this deal is for you! The place is Sushi Jo at PGA Commons and the deal is good every Friday night. Sushi Jo PGA just announced a slew of new specials - see the front cover and take advantage of them while they last!
An old pal of mine that I hadn’t spoken with for at least a year called me last week and said “I read your column and you are right - Manhattan Bagel’s are the best in town.” If you are a bagel lover and have not been to this spot you’re missing the best! My friend said every time he’s near the Promenade Plaza his kids start asking to “get some Manhattan Bagels.” His wife swears by the fresh salads there and he also said the grilled sandwiches are extremely tasty. You’ll be the star at any gathering when you show up with the Express Pak Bucket from Manhattan Bagel - 13 Bagels & 2 Cream Cheese Tubs for only $13! See page 6 for info. Living in the Palm Beaches is a good life, full of many privileges that others don’t get to enjoy. One of those is being able to stop by the Tulipan Family Bakery for a custom cake at Christmas time. Sure, their pastries are out of this world delicious. Yes, the breads are fanatically fantastic. But when you order one of their custom cakes you’ll understand why this business has been thriving for 20 years. This holiday season take a little time to get a memorable cake with your special holiday family note on it in sweet icing. Your family will remember that cake forever - see the back cover and order it today! If you want to liven up the party check out DrumDanceTheatre.com, their shows at KavasutraTu I’ve seen are fantastic and the DrumDanceTheatre is available for bookings this season at private parties, events and nightclubs.

A “REAL” REAL ESTATE EDUCATION
HAPPY HOLIDAYS – “There’s No Place Like Home” By John Q. Podesta
“ Welcome . . . my goal is to make you feel at home.” Demitri - resident manager
523 24th Street Northwood Village, West Palm Beach
Rent includes wi-ﬁ t cable TVt electricity GREAT VALUE Please contact Demitri at 561- 536- 5538 www.jrpacheco.com
The National Association of REALTOR’S preamble to the “Code of Ethics,” to which all members subscribe, begins with the following: “Under all is the land. Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depend the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilization.” I have read those words many times in reminder that what we do in this business of real estate every day is to take actions that transfer ownership of “the land” and that which is set upon it. And with that goes an obligation to treat all with dignity, integrity and respect. A residence (a home) to which one has title entitles the owner to his or her piece of that land – a small share of the planet’s resources and its place in the future of our civilization. So I thought this Season of good wishes and glad tidings was a good time to remind all of us of the value of home ownership. An investment in what looks like a good stock can fall in future value to zero, with you holding a certificate of worthless paper. But, although an investment in land and a home may increase and decrease with the market place, it will always have value – and your deed -- a valuable piece of paper. As a Realtor for over 22 years I do not take lightly the responsibility of respecting the land and in seeing to it that transactions transferring ownership are handled in a manner respectful of the value of the property to both Buyer and Seller. And that is the philosophy of my office and our associates. We’ve decked the halls and invite you to come visit our office and see our tree, and to bring an unwrapped toy to put under it for those not as fortunate as we are. John Q. Podesta is a national instructor and author of the “Real Estate Professional Assistant” course of the National Association of Realtors. He is the Managing Broker of Crystal Tree Realty in North Palm Beach. For more information: JohnQPodesta@gmail. com or 561-379-5875.

THE BIGGEST “SORE” LOSER: Riviera Beach Councilperson Dawn Pardo T
he Riviera Beach marina referendum passed on November 2nd. The planned Rybovich industrial boatyard for megayachts was soundly defeated by the voters. On November 4th, Rybovich graciously acknowledged defeat and abandoned the project. It also dropped its $10 million lawsuits against two members of the Citizens Task Force who successfully put the referendum on the ballot. Councilperson Pardo was brought to tears by the defeat, now that she would no longer have access to Rybovich’s corporate jet that had flown her to Tallahassee on at least one occasion. Even though Rybovich admitted defeat, Dawn Pardo, our resident dictator with a gavel, decided to up her slimeball reputation a couple more notches. Pardo successfully pushed both the City Council and Community Redevelopment Agency to file an appeal with the 4th District Court of Appeals in an attempt to nullify the results of the referendum vote!
Not the first time.
his is not the first such effort by Pardo to stymie the public will. She previously pushed the City to file a lawsuit to stop the referendum prior to the election, one that failed when Judge Edward H. Fine ruled that the referendum would remain on the ballot. Pardo was furious with Judge Fine, the longest tenured Judge in Palm Beach County with 33 years on the bench and referred to him as a “fool.” Pardo’s ongoing futile efforts to thwart the will of the people are clear evidence of her narcissistic personality and disregard for those she represents. Pardo pursues power at all costs and lacks normal inhibitions in its pursuit. Her grandiose vision for the marina was for naught, and this has triggered a pattern of destructive behavior that warrants more than just the current citizen’s initiated recall to remove her from office. State Attorney McAuliffe, a.k.a. the fearless wonderboy, needs to conclude his investigations and finally proceed to the issuance of some indictments. There is nothing confusing about Pardo’s participation in a competitive bid rigging scam, when she refused to put the marina out for an RFP (request for proposal), and instead leased it to Rybovich without allowing industrial boatyards from around the world to compete for this unique property. (This was not the fi rst time Pardo refused to follow the legally mandated competitive process. She just voted to approve the City waste contract to Waste Management, even though Waste Management was ranked 4th after the RFP process had been completed and did not even have the lowest price!) After having her campaign kick-off party at the City marina Tiki Bar, she conveniently voted to approve its lease renewal to include another 8000 square feet of City property, again without the statutory-mandated RFP. All of which cost the taxpayers millions by her continual disregard for the competitive procurement process. The voters need to step up and recall Pardo from office. This City can neither afford nor tolerate the continued havoc that Pardo is wreaking on it.

RIVIERA BEACH COUNCILMAN CEDRICK THOMAS AGREES TO SETTLE HIS $206,723 JUDGMENT
Lending money to Riviera Beach Councilman Cedrick Thomas has not been a great investment for the Business Loan Fund of the Palm Beaches. Now known as the Center for Enterprise Opportunity, the non-profit lender receives public money to make loans to emerging businesses. Usually those seeking loans are asked to put up collateral such as their homes or other hard assets. In the case of Cedrick Thomas he put up nothing but his signature. Why he was allowed to do that remains a mystery. Thomas got the loan which as of March showed a balance of $175,440 plus $29,631 in interest. The interest may have been piling up due to Thomas not making the payments. In October of 2009 the Loan Fund got a court judgment against Thomas in an attempt to force him to come up with financial records of where he actually spent the money and how the Loan Fund could collect the debt. Not only did Thomas not put up any collateral he also refused to turn over financial records. What residents want to know is where did Thomas spend all the cash? A representative for the Center for Enterprise Opportunity said “we don’t know what he bought with the money.” In March of 2010 he won election to his current seat on the council by 11 votes. Many residents claim Thomas, who has a $97,000 a year “bus contract” with the Riviera Beach Maritime Academy, is in the pocket of Viking Yachts. Viking Yachts is the Master Developer in Riviera Beach and pushed hard for the Rybovich Boat Repair Yard at the Riviera Beach Marina, which was defeated in a recent referendum. Residents objected to giving a private business 40% of their public marina and the removal of 400 boat slips used by the public to make way for 4 super-yachts getting repairs. Now Thomas, sitting on the council and insisting on voting on matters involving Viking Yachts, is allegedly leading the charge to use taxpayers money to overturn the referendum by filing an appeal on the language. Why the Feds have not intervened and stopped him is another mystery. Now Thomas has quietly agreed to a settlement on the loan and a resumption of payments. Residents are still upset over the way Thomas blatantly pushed the Rybovich takeover of the public Marina, going so far as to stand at the polling place on Singer Island and intimidate voters arriving to vote, which my publisher witnessed firsthand. During several council meetings before the referendum vote took place Thomas spoke often about the need for more revenue at the Marina. He failed to mention that he voted to give away the Tiki Bar lease for about $6500 a month, even though there was an offer of $22,000 a month from another bidder. That vote has cost the city residents $186,000 a year. Then there are allegations, allegedly made in sworn depositions, that Thomas attempted to shake down the high bidder, telling him they’d have to meet somewhere and the bidder would be required to “take off all his clothes so I can make sure your not wearing a wire” and then “I’ll tell you how the Tiki Bar lease works.” Now there are allegations that Riviera residents have been paying the bill for power & water at the Tiki Bar, and several council members have known about it. Some residents claim the Tiki Bar owners have been making monthly payoffs to council people in return for the cheap rent deal and free power & water. Tiki Bar employees claim numerous city officials including certain council members are often drinking & eating at the Tiki Bar with large groups and they are told to comp the check, which usually results in them getting stiffed on their tip. This whole thing stinks and makes me understand how Cedrick Thomas got his nickname - “The Great Corrupter.” Loxahatchee Nudist camp under fire......If you think Loxahatchee doesn’t swing think again. A place called Sunsport Gardens is known world-wide for their 130 trailers of nude loving residents. It started in 1965 and has grown every year since with 40 acres for people to wander around nude. Their website displays a letter from Northwood resident and well-known nudist Carl Flick supporting the no-smoking policy along with photos of families including children standing around the pool in the buff. Loxahatchee Groves incorporated in 2006 and is now enacting a density land use of 1 home per 5 acres, which would only allow 8 home sites. The local Mayor Dave Browning indicated he will support the nudist camp saying- “My thought is we will probably allow them to keep the intensity they have now, we really don't want to put businesses out of business.” Phony modeling agency..........Watch out for InterFACE Talent Agency at your local shopping mall. The company has allegedly hit our area with sales reps who hang out at the mall and approach parents with children. Reps allegedly tell parents their child “has the look” they are seeking for a national company. Parents are then invited to quickly take advantage of the national search by coming to their office and doing a photo shoot (up to $1500) and paying to be on the firms database ($2300 for 4 years) so national advertising agencies and casting directors can view their photos. The company arrived in South Florida after New Jersey’s Better Business Bureau had 230 complaints and rated the firm with an “F”. Last year Connecticut's Department of Consumer Protection got $20,000 in refunds for 18 families amid complaints about InterFACE's cancellation policies.

"What mainstream media won't tell you"
By Hutton Carter, III
Serving Rotten food to our troops.........U.S. troops serving in Iraq were served rotten food by a Texas businessman and his company American Grocers. If our troops knew while they were in Iraq serving they were being served food from a man named Samir Mahmoud Itani it may have raised an eyebrow. Itani and his family members own American Grocers and just paid a $15 million fine for buying food at huge discounts that was expiring from Kraft, Hershey, Frito Lay & Sara Lee and ordering employees to use acetone and spray paint to change the expiration dates on the product labels in Texas. The food was then shipped to Iraq. The food included hamburger patties, lobster, potato flakes and turkeys among other items. Itani charged the government $36 million for the rotten food, making the fine of $15 million a joke. What makes it worse is that this company “American Grocers” owned by this guy Samir Mahmoud Itani, may still be providing food to our troops. Where is our national media on this one? A fall from sports history...... NY Giants Superbowl star Dave Meggett has been sent to prison for 30 years following a rape conviction. The 44-year old football star led the NFL in punt returns during his first two seasons and had 129 yards in combined yards in the Giants' 20-19 Super Bowl XXV victory over the Buffalo Bills. He is 2nd all time in NFL record books for punt returns with 3,708 yards. Meggett raped a 21-year old girl after she couldn’t repay him some money he lent her in North Charleston, South Carolina. Sex and Dave Meggett never seemed to work well after he retired from the NFL in 1999 and returned to North Charleston, where he attended high school. In 2007, he pleaded guilty to the sexual battery of a girlfriend and over time faced 5 different sex charges with various women. Meggett will not be eligible for parole until 2035. The world of money......A trial in Manhattan is revealing what life is like for oil rich Saudis born into royalty. The Bolkiah family rules Brunei, a nation of 350,000. They have accounted for 50% of all Rolls Royce sales since the 1990’s. Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei was once famously sued in 1997 by former Miss USA Shannon Marketic for keeping her and a group of American beauty queens captive in the 1,788-room Royal Palace in Brunei. Now 56, Prince Jefri was once sued by his brother for stealing $15 Billion from their bank accounts. Prince Jefri moved to Long Island, living in a mansion on 28 acres where he allegedly spent billions on hookers, paintings, a yacht named Tits with 2 speedboats called Nipple I & Nipple II and over 2,000 cars including the latest Ferraris and Aston Martins. He had the toilet brushes plated in gold and a $250 million-a-year budget for call girls. He once had 40 of them flown to London's Dorchester Hotel, owned by his family, to dance around his room. NYU student Jillian Lauren, now 37, wrote a book “Some Girls: My Life in a Harem” that claimed the average rate was $10K a day for girls and the family preferred blond Beauty Queens with trumped up titles like “Nebraska Corn Husker Queen.” The real comedy is that all this stuff has come out during a lawsuit filed by Prince Jefri claiming two NYC financial adviser cheated him out of a paltry $7 million. The trial was still going on at press time. Antique screwup.....A poor working class British family brought a Chinese vase that they had owned for 60 years to a show called “Going For a Song” on the BBC that was remade into what is now “Antiques Roadshow.” The arrogant curator told them it was “nothing more than a clever reproduction” and sent them away as idiots. That was 40 years ago. When a family member recently inherited it he sent it to the Arts Club of London where it sat for months among other junk collecting dust. An expert then got around to evaluating the piece and estimated it could sell for big money, claiming it was made in 1740 for the royal court of Qianlong, the fifth emperor of the Qing dynasty. So they sent it to an auction last month at the house of Peter Bainbridge, a very small business with just three full-time employees. After a 30-minute battle by billionaires phoning in bids the final price was $85.9 million by an anonymous buyer in China. The auction house will get $13 million and the family gets $69 million. You might want to refrain from throwing out any old vases. Have you heard about..........The U.S. launched what allegedly is the biggest big-brother eavesdropping satellite in history recently at Cape Canaveral using for only the 4th time what’s called a “Delta-4 Heavy” - the most powerful rocket booster ever made with 2 million pounds of thrust.........Rod Stewart’s wild child Sean Stewart is marrying a woman 9 years older that he met in rehab. Sean, now 30, lives with Chantel Kendall who is loaded with cash and has a Malibu mansion, which should work for Sean as Hot-Rod allegedly cut him off in an attempt to break his cocaine habit......Willie Nelson, now 77, was busted for weed again in Texas last month on his way to Austin for a show. This follows his 2006 bust for over a pound of pot and mushrooms which got him 6 months probation - party on dude......Word’s out the Feds are close to announcing charges against the top leaders of the Columbo Crime Family in a multi-state case that includes Palm Beach area members and a made guy named Sebastiano Saracino who has allegedly turned rat after being popped for a murder............Remember, Don’t repeat a word of this! It’s all on the QT!
