I got a call from a lady on Singer Island from Michigan who wanted to thank me for her experience at the Paramount Ballroom. Her husband passed away a few years ago and she said she had little motivation to do much. Out of boredom she tried the unreal $99 deal at Paramount Ballroom - 3 private dance lessons, 1 group dance class & 1 Dance Party all for that low price. She said “I’ve never had dance lessons, my husband taught me to dance 40 years ago, so I was a little nervous.” But she said the staff and owner Alec made her feel so comfortable she didn’t want to leave and now “my social calendar is full” with new friends, both male & female that she met at the Paramount. “It’s really a classy, friendly group of people” she said. Sure there’s tons of celebrities at Paramount from DWTS dancers to actors and musicians getting in show shape, but go have some fun yourself today - see page 2 and make the call, mention the PB Sun and you’ll get the best $99 Dance deal in town!

Lots of chatter about the pizza pies coming out of the oven at Nick’s Apizza on Lake Avenue. The New Haven-style pizza is a big buzz on the internet world-wide for their unique way of preparing it “donewell” using a coal-fired oven at 750 degrees to cook it. Now Nick’s is also serving Big Bite Hummel’s Coal Fired Hotdogs - said by many to be the best in the world. Another new menu item making waves is Nick’s Fresh Cut Parmesan Potato Sticks these are fantastic! There’s also a fullliquor bar along with huge salads for two and a complete menu of lunch & dinner items priced affordably. See page 15 and dine at Nick’s tonight try something new & delicious you’ve never had before! On Clematis Street another outstanding pizza maker has announced that his entire menu is now available for delivery! Clematis Pizza is now delivering to the WPB & Palm Beach area their huge menu of Italian food. You can see the entire menu on page 10 and take advantage of the cash saving coupons on their ad! Even with gas prices this high there’s no charge for delivery - it’s free. I’ve had slices at Clematis Pizza many times - they are the best on the street by far! His low overhead also means low prices for you! Check out the prices on page 10 and have a piping hot meal delivered to your front door tonight! Right next door to Clematis Pizza is a place that has become the hippest scene in town - KavasutraTu. If you haven’t been to one of their drum circle parties you’re missing the 60’s re-lived. The only thing missing is the monster Cheech & Chong joint being passed around. (that stuff is illegal) The attitude, friendliness, free love and help thy neighbor theme is alive and well as folks get loose with Kava and dance to the drum beats of Howard Dean’s Drum Dance Theatre group while girls gyrate & belly dance. Every Thursday people come from all 3 counties for 2-4-1 Kava and celebrate life in a relaxed state of mind. To understand KavasutraTu you have to try it yourself - see page 9 and go there tonight for an experience you’ll never forget!

A “REAL� REAL ESTATE EDUCATION

Real Estate Q’s & A’s By John Q. Podesta

Thanks for the Emails and calls, and for asking some very good questions. I thought answering some of them here would be helpful to many of our readers. Q. You discussed a new contract for the sale and purchase of real estate in the State of Florida. How do I get a copy? A. Find a good Realtor and he or she will be able to draft the contract for you. It is not available for purchase or general distribution nor is it designed for use by a non-professional. Q. I enjoyed the column on Financing. I have excellent credit and recently applied for financing a condominium with 20% down, but the loan was turned down because of the tightening of criteria for condominium loans. Help! A. A loan officer of a major lender confided in me that loan applications with a minimum of 25% down may be viewed much more favorably for condominium approval. You might want to re-apply. Q. I am considering the purchase of a home and want to have it inspected before I make an offer, but the seller says no. What are my options? A. The contract gives you the right to inspect within a time period, and it also covers your liability for any damages as a result, and also provides that the seller will provide access and utilities, etc. so the inspection can be completed. Of course a buyer and seller can agree to whatever they wish, but in the normal course of events inspections are done after the contract is signed, and you can then make a decision based on the results as long as you act within the specified time frame and the remedies available to you (e.g. a right to cancel). Q. What is the difference between a short sale and a foreclosed or bank owned property? A. In a short sale you are dealing with both the owner (who still holds title) and the lender, as the lender is being asked to accept an offer which will not satisfy the balance of the current owner’s mortgage. When a property is foreclosed the bank takes title and you are making an offer to buy it directly from the bank. Both take time and patience. Q. Your ad in the “Palm Beach Sun� says your office DOES NOT charge “Dealer Fees.� What exactly is that? A. In the practice of traditional real estate, real estate brokers are paid a commission by the seller at closing for performing the services of real estate as defined in State law. But many real estate companies (particularly large franchise offices) looked for an additional source of income, and “Administrative Service Fees� were created. In several court cases challenging these extra fees it has been ruled that they must be supported by performance of additional work over and above that which is covered by commission. When listing a property in those real estate offices you are asked to sign a fine print disclosure to agree to pay a fee of hundreds of dollars over the commission at closing, AND, a Buyer making an offer is given a similar disclosure to also pay a fee of hundreds of dollars at closing for the “extra� services. Those “dealer fees� can really add up!

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.

PREPARE TO PUKE George “Crabass” Carter and Bruce “I beat my girlfriend” Guyton vie to be the new Riviera Beach Mayor and Councilperson

The world is not supposed to come to an end until December 21, 2012 according to the Mayan calendar. The political world in Riviera Beach may explode before that if George “Crabass” Carter and Bruce “I beat my girlfriend” Guyton get elected. These two slimeballs are trying to slide through the March ballot like sh*t through a goose. Crabass is one piece of work. I had the opportunity to see up close how Crabass operates. He ran the Riviera Beach City marina into the ground and then turned around and took a job at Viking, the company chosen to redevelop the marina. Crabass then pushed Viking’s agenda to have an industrial shipyard at the marina, on the grounds that the marina was in a terribly run down state. Hmmmm. One of the few highlights of my floating home three day eviction trial that Crabass put me through was when I had the chance to cross examine him on the witness stand. It was a pleasure to emasculate that crybaby. Crabass’s absurd testimony was a big reason that the jury ruled in my favor and denied the City’s eviction. I remember looking at the incredulous looks on the jurors faces when Crabass made his tearful request to the judge to be excused from the witness stand only for the Judge to tell him he had to continue sitting there and answering my questions. One of the strangest answers from Crabass was when he feigned ignorance as to George “Crabass” who Bob Healey was! Healey only happens to be his boss at Viking and the man who pays his salary (lol). Not Carter surprisingly, Crabass is also an unpatriotic SOB to boot. He came up to me in front of some bystanders who witnessed the confrontation and told me that he hoped my brother, a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force, would get blown up in Iraq! Bruce “I beat my girlfriend” Guyton is another jerk so full of himself that it is amazing that his head can fit through the doorway to City hall. A councilperson back in the 1990’s, the Palm Beach Post has a trove of stories about this scumbag. Singer Island residents are still angry about his support for the noise ordinance and the extended hours at the Oceans Eleven North Night Club. Looking through the Post archives we find: September 8, 1994, Guyton was “stopped on suspicion of drunk driving,” and “drove through two stop signs, swerved over the center line several times and was clocked at 62 mph in a 35mph zone.” “Guyton refused Bruce “I beat my to take roadside sobriety tests.” Guyton was not charged after he called for a police supervisor who drove him girlfriend” Guyton from the scene. November 7, 1994 the now infamous Guyton is charged with DUI (blood alcohol was .12) and found with a marijuana cigarette and several butts in the trunk of his car. Guyton was “badly injured” and was taken to St. Mary’s orthopedic trauma unit after he crossed the center line and hit a car with two adults and a 12 year old child. Palm Beach Post wrote two editorials, one on November 23, 1994, asking Guyton to resign and another one on December 2, 1994 asking the voters to replace him. At that time Guyton was the subject of a criminal investigation into accepting cash bribes and free food and liquor for his vote for a noise ordinance and extended hours at the Oceans Eleven North Club on Singer Island. January 19, 1996, February 18, 1996 Guyton was arrested for domestic battery against his girlfriend Diana Mosley at her home. Guyton had “bloodstains on his clothes-bleeding from one hand.” Ms. Mosley was “crying and hysterical, had bruises on one ear and blood on her face, shirt and legs.” The charges were later dropped after it was determined that Guyton and Mosley did not live with each other. February 8, 1996 The State Attorney found that although Guyton “had clearly violated the Sunshine Law” he was not charged because the audio tape evidence of his violations was improperly obtained.

We dedicate our latest ditty to our newest Palm Beach Sun fan, a sassy and funny lady who will remain nameless so that she will not be targeted by the Riviera Beach political slime machine. With thanks to the Steve Miller Band, we can now all sing along to its #1 song, “The Joker,” in DISHONOR of Riviera Beach Mayoral Candidate George “Crabass” Carter and his running mate Bruce “I beat my girlfriend” Guyton. Before reading further, you may want to puke first and get it over with. Some people call me George “Crabass” Carter, yeah. Some call me the space cadet of Riviera B, Some people call me the great white dope, Cause I speak of the pompitous of muzzling Fane’s doggy. oggy. People talk about me, baby. Say I’m doing this city wrong, doing it wrong, Well don’t you worry baby, Don’t worry, Cause I’m right here, right here, ready to do it harm. m. Cause I’m a fake, I’m a phony, I’m a liar, And I’m a cheat, I play my bullshit to my own rap song, I’m a joker, My running mate Bruce Guyton is the smoker, He’s the real midnight toker, He talks his trash like he wants to hurt Lozmaaaaaaaaaaaaaan. You’re the cutest city marina I ever did see, Really love your Tiki Bar bitches want to shake their trees Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time Come on, City, you know that a crabass and a pot head belong…………. (as Mayor and Councilman (bol=barf out loud))

By Fane Lozman

Are you ready to puke yet? Don’t feel bad, I did after I wrote this.

That crappy tequila I got for Christmas only made it worse.

14,000 CITGO GAS STATIONS MAY BE SEIZED

You may know that Citgo gas stations are owned by Venezuela and controlled by their leader Hugo Chavez. Venezuela also owns three oil refineries located on the Gulf Coast in America and a fleet of oil tankers currently being held in Houston. 25 years ago, long before Hugo Chavez, Venezuela sold $6 Billion in bonds to investors in America. The bonds came due in 2005 but Chavez refused to pay. As late as 2002 Ohio investors had spoken with Venezuela officials and got a 50-page letter from Venezuela Attorney General Marisol Plaza defining that the bonds were guaranteed by the Treasury. It seems no one expected them to be cashed in. When the investors demanded payment, Chavez fired Plaza and replaced her with a new Attorney General who wrote a 3-page letter saying the bonds are fraudulent and they would not be paid. The investors sued in U.S. courts and now the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has denied the appeal by Venezuela. The six year legal battle has cost upwards of $40 million and has resulted in an order to begin seizing assets in the U.S. belonging to Venezuela if they refuse to pay what is now an $8 Billion tab, including interest. If these seizures begin it may affect every American. Chavez could shut down 14,000 gas stations in the U.S. creating gas lines and shortages, he could stop the flow of oil from his nation to ours, driving the price of gas thru the $10 a gallon mark in a matter of weeks. If his tankers are seized he could cry to OPEC countries and create more oil problems. The U.S. State Department is allegedly scared stiff about what may happen if seizures begin to U.S. foreign assets in other nations which may be sabotaged by Venezuela secret services with the aid of our foreign enemies. The U.S. media has backed off the story for fear of creating fear. But panic has set in at the highest levels of our government. Stay tuned. Nude reality show from Florida...... Filming has begun on a nude reality show at Caliente Resort in Land O’ Lakes. Called “The Nak’d Truth” the show follows 8 young buffs under 30 who work at the resort while living together and being nude all the time. Their genitals will be digitally buzzed out for TV - imaging being the graphic artist with that job. The 8 people include 4 women and 4 men. A producer from the show says -“Our hope is to show the world the differences between people, when they are diminished of their clothing and become the same.” The show has not been picked up, but if it airs look for a stampede of nudists to Florida. I don’t know what pocket they keep their cash in but I suppose it spends the same as anyone else’s. Takeover at 2 condos......... Times are getting testy at big condos and being President of your Condo Board has become dangerous. Two large local buildings have recently undergone what one caller told me was a “Ku De Ta” takeover of their boards by outraged residents, even requiring armed police officers being present to stop ousted Board Members from rifling thru the condo office and destroying documents after being thrown off the board. Condo residents are now much more interested in how their maintenance dollars are being spent and who is getting the money. Presidents and Board Members are being accused of funneling thousands to friends and kickback schemes have been uncovered. Fistfights have broken out at condo meetings as snowbirds have arrived to find out their condo treasury has been looted and assessments are on the way. Condo residents have found out the hard way that you can’t just step up and ask any financial question you want to if it’s not on the agenda it can’t be raised, according to Florida law. The law says board meetings are restricted to agenda items and in most circumstances neither board members nor owners have a right to talk about anything not on the agenda. So if the board does not put, for instance, an item called “Overtime pay to staff” on the agenda, owners have no right to ask why 1 employee got $20,000 in overtime pay last quarter. The inability to get answers has frustrated owners who are facing increases in monthly fees due to foreclosures and non-payment from empty units. Get ready to rumble. Palm Beach Moron for president........Serial adulterer and PB Island condo resident Rudy Guiliani is starting to make noise about running for President again. After running a truly half-assed campaign last time in which he bet on winning Florida and got trounced, Guiliani has found the need to stay relevant by running again. Even his close friends are telling him it’s a dumb idea. As one political analyst said - “Nobody is paying $100,000 to hear the same warmed-over 9/11 speech. His speaking fees have dropped as well as his consulting fees.” This is a man who made his wife stay upstairs at Gracie Mansion while he walked around a city event downstairs with his girlfriend. He refused to ok paying for new communication equipment for 1st responders before 9-11 that may have saved lives, yet claims to be strong on national security. If he does run, count the number of times he brings up 9-11. Party boy gone wild.....Those nutty Russians are at it again. Notorious party king billionaire Roman Abramovich threw a NY’s Eve bash at his $90 million pad in St. Barts featuring the Black Eyed Peas celebrating both the New Year and delivery of his new yacht - the 534-foot Eclipse. That’s not a misprint - the thing is about a football field and a half long. The party allegedly cost more than $15 million, the price of the new yacht is unknown. Spend, baby spend!

"What mainstream media won't tell you"

By Hutton Carter, III

The old switcharoo.....Who would think of trying to hide cards up their sleeve in a casino nowadays with video cameras that can spot a tic on the carpet. A fellow named Young Su Gy “won” more than $870,000 at the Foxwoods Resort playing baccarat doing just that. He had a gadget in his sleeve that whipped the card from his hand and replaced it with another. Called a “holdout device” it worked like a charm until he made one stupid mistake - coming back to the same place, the same table and doing the same thing for 3 weeks. He’s sitting in jail on $500K bond waiting for his trial in February. Cops are still looking for most of the $870,000. What they won’t tell you.......That Obama just sent another 1,400 Marines to Afghanistan after one of the worst years for troop deaths & injuries in the war. 499 U.S. troops died last year in Afghanistan, the worst year by far. In 2009 317 U.S. soldiers were killed after 155 died in 2008. The trend is horrible and as of press time 3 U.S. Troops had died so far in 7 days of January. Insiders say privately the military industrial complex is still running the war and Obama does not have the backbone to stand up to them, fearing the old “soft on defense” routine in 2012 from Republicans. That’s one reason Secretary of Defense Gates, a Bush appointee, is still in office running the show. I thought we went to Afghanistan to kill Bin Laded and rout the Taliban, we’ve done neither. But we do have cheap heroin on our streets........The four major oil companies made profits of $59.7 billion in the first 9 months of 2010 and Exxon, Royal Dutch Shell, Total SA and Chevron expect to make $80 billion for the entire year of 2010........For 2 years now Sarah Palin has been fighting in court to stop Alaska from releasing emails from her time as Governor. Usually these emails are released within months of leaving office. Her lawyers have again asked for a delay, this time until May 30, 2011, the 15th time they have asked for a postponement. Insiders claim the emails will show that her husband Todd actually ran the state and dealt directly with many state authorities and legislators. Palin’s lawyers are claiming its a “logistic problem” - they need time to figure out how to release the emails in a “secure electronic form suitable for review.” ...........A new report from the U.S. Senate claims that Libya threatened to cut BP out of an oil deal worth billions if they did not get Scotland to release the Lockerbie bomb plotter that blew up Pan Am Flight 103. In August of 2008 American victims were horrified that at only 58 years old Abdelbaset Ali Mohammed al-Megrahi walked away from a lifetime sentence and was allegedly sent home to die. He still lives on today in a luxury villa in Tripoli showing no signs of any debilitating disease as a national hero for killing all 259 passengers and 11 people on the ground. BP allegedly used its influence to get the bomber released by paying off various British and Scottish politicians and convincing them to allow it in the name of “national security.” Kennedy’s stop miniseries from airing...........The History Channel spent millions on actors like Katie Holmes (playing Jackie) and Greg Kinnear (playing JFK) and filming an epic 8-episode miniseries about the Kennedys. Caroline Kennedy spent weeks pressuring Disney, Hearst & NBC not to show what she thought was a vindictive & malicious script. History Channel now has put out a statement - “While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand.” But it’s good enough to air in Canada where it will be shown starting in March and in other nations around the world - while we Americans will not see it. It is being shopped to pay cable channels. Another chip in the wall of alleged “American freedom.” A great one....At 17 years old in 1936 he pitched in his first game striking out 15 Major League hitters beating the St. Louis Browns 4-1. In 1938 he struck out 18, setting a record that would last until Nolan Ryan broke it in 1974. He is 1 of only two men in history to strike out his age - he struck out 17 batters at age 17 in his 3rd game. He pitched the only opening day no-hitter in history. He was signed by Cleveland at 16, it was kept secret because he wanted to keep playing high school basketball. The contract was for $1 in cash & a baseball signed by the Cleveland players. He never spent a day in the minor leagues. He pitched a no-hitter against NY in Yankee Stadium and by age 22 he had won more than 100 games. His fastball was clocked at 107 mph & he was honored in 1969 as the best right-handed pitcher ever. He said his arm strength came from milking cows, picking corn, and baling hay on the Iowa farm where he grew up. After being struck out, Ted Williams once said to a reporter as he walked back to the dugout - “That last one sounded a little low.” He died on December 15, 2010. “Bullet” Bob Feller was a great one. Have you heard about........When the Heat played the Knicks in NYC at the Garden courtside seats were being scalped for $75,000.......Honey Buns, that sugarfilled junk bun can thank felons for their survival - Florida inmates buy 270,000 Honey Buns a month in our prison system, it is the top selling item sold to inmates..........The well-known TV actor (not Sheen) who’s been holed up at a PB Island hotel on a coke binge for 5 weeks. His tab is said to be approaching $60,000 not including the 2-3 escorts that show up every day......The young hookers from NJ in for the season that call Bradley’s in WPB their home - one guy said “I chatted up 3 women at the bar, they all quoted the same price - $150 for a date” - their young 25-ish pimp wanders the place finding customers for them. Remember, don’t repeat a word of this! It’s all on the QT!

He also has a large selection of electric guitars in every price range and shelves of laptops. And remember, Fast Eddie’s pays the highest cash around for your gold and silver! See page 7 for info! B' Paws is the only place I trust to take care of my terrier, Rocky's, coat, nails, eyes and ears. He loves going to visit Nicole and Phillip for his grooming and never wants to leave. B' Paws provides day care, boarding and all kinds of fun toys, outfits & goodies for your pets. See their ad on page 16 for more info. Treasure Coast Antiques on Northlake Boulevard has the most eclectic collection of antiques in our area. They offer the carefully culled pieces that owner, Richard, has amassed in over 50 years of world travel. Richard and Kelly also have many items from the Woolworth Estate and the Old Monterey Hotel in WPB. Their large showroom, arranged to carefully display each piece, makes browsing (and buying) a pleasure. See their ad on the back page of the paper for more information and have fun shopping! Who says you can’t have fun in the Palm Beaches for free? Head to Currie Park each Second Saturday of the month for live music and fun on the lawn. The Palm Beach Maritime Museum hosts this fun-filed family activity for all to enjoy. Well-known musicians, Clay Ivory and the Remains and the Joey Tenuto, Jr. Band keep everybody moving to the music all afternoon long. Bring your own blanket, lawn chairs and coolers and settle in for a grand time. Boaters are welcome too! Mark your calendar for the 2nd Saturday in March when the Maritime Museum wil sponsor the First Annual Currie Park Music Festival. Watch for next month’s Sun for a listing of the bands that will be performing!
