PUBLISHER’S NOTE

> Please don’t fail to cast your vote, in this, the most pivotal presidential contest most of us have ever experienced. It’s almost humorous that we’re debating which candidate cares most about dogs! Think of the silliness of the Obama campaign’s focus on a 30-year old Romney dog travel episode, followed by the Romney campaign touting an anecdote from Obama’s memoir in which the ‘prez’ mentions having once consumed dog meat! All this followed by Obama surrogates defending his dog meat-eating days on TV. So, if you think this election campaign has “gone to the dogs,” check out our entertaining editorial about ‘Bark’ Obama vs. ‘Mutt’ Romney “Give Paws a Chance,” on page 48. Speak of voting, thanks to all of the thousands of readers who have already cast their ballots for the best in our city, the “2012 Readers’ Choice Award.” The winners, announced in this issue, should contact us at info@styletome.com to collect their certificate. As in past years, our luxury issue is supported by a great story “Luxury on Steroids,” along with an amazing luxury fashion shoot “Catch a Thief,” somewhat loosely connected to the fantastic movie of a similar name. Please let me have your thoughts and/or comments about ‘luxury.’ Thinking about a great holiday gift idea? Well, Santa is beginning to rev up his sleigh mobile so why not let us arrange to have ‘Tampa Style Magazine’ ‘slide’ its way into your mailbox by becoming a privileged subscriber for yourself or a friend? Simply go online right now at www.styletome.com choose ‘Get Magazines’ – ‘Subscribe,’ sign up and we’ll do the rest. Out of the first 100 new subscribers/members automatically entered, five will win a $100 prize! Our new subscriber campaign has already begun online in our ‘NEWSTOME’ newsletter to all members, and will end on December 10th with the winners announced on December 14th. Please don’t let this opportunity slip your mind so hurry to get into the drawing. We wish you all a safe, and wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.< Sincerely,

Sven J. Bode, Publisher

Fun, Fearless, Female... MEET JAYDE DONOVAN Photo By Susan Jeffers Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> While listeners in Central Florida have been familiar with Jayde for more than 5 years now, Jayde just arrived in Tampa Bay in January as the first ever female to launch her own morning show in the area. True to form, she has been heating up Morning Drive on the New Hot 101.5 ever since! The ever vibrant former co-Host of “Johnny and Jayde in the Morning” on XL 106.7 in Orlando, has flourished in her new role already amassing a loyal audience which has embraced her fearlessness on air. With a face meant for more than radio, Jayde is frequently recognized for her guest host spot on “Live with Regis & Kelly!” where she sat side by side with Regis Philbin, filling in for a vacationing Kelly Ripa. The audience response was so great that Regis called the Orlando station she was working for at the time to personally thank them for presenting her as an option for the show. Her performance lead to a pilot at BRAVO as well as correspondent work in Los Angeles for Access Hollywood alongside Billy Bush interviewing celebrities ranging from Adam Levin and Bradley Cooper to Jessica Simpson and Justin Bieber. While her career has been extremely fulfilling and has taken her across the country and back again, she is now preparing for her biggest role to date, that of mom. “Being a Mom is the most important job I’ll ever have. I think it’s the most frightening and exciting thing I’ll ever go through! We can’t wait to meet our little one!” The hardest part now is waiting for the gender on the day of arrival,“I must like the idea of torturing myself, friends & family, because we’re all dying to know the sex, but I won’t bend!” When my patience wears thin, I imagine the moment when the doctor will hold up our brand new baby & says, “It’s a ___!!! It is going to be the biggest and best moment of my life.”

“While her career has been extremely fulfilling and has taken her across the country and back again, she is now preparing for her biggest role to date, that of mom.”

Plans are already in the works to extend the Apple a Day Program down I-4 to Tampa Bay.

In Case You Missed It STYLE EVENTS, NEWS & GOSSIP FROM AROUND THE CITY

By Samantha Millgate Read more at: StyleToMe.com

“Germantown” has come to downtown Tampa and we didn’t have to jump on a plane to enjoy all that Germany has to offer.

> The month of October wasn’t just for pumpkin patches and trick-ortreaters, the adults had the chance to get into the holiday cheer without the bite sized candies or spooky costumes. The great city of Tampa hosted some major events this month and none of them had us shouting “Boo!” “Germantown” has come to downtown Tampa and we didn’t have to jump on a plane to enjoy all that Germany has to offer. Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park hosted the 2012 Oktoberfest celebration on the 12th thru the 14th. As we all know, the Germans are known for their impressive taste in beer. At this years Oktoberfest patrons had the choice of three traditional German-style beers to treat themselves to: the customary pilsner brew called “Helles,” a stout or dark ale named “Dunkles,” and the wheat beer labeled “Weissbier.” These Oktoberfest-style brews were served in two capacities, the sixteen-ounce cup and the one-liter “Mass Beirs,” guaranteeing a thirst quenching experience. If beer wasn’t enough to crowd the waterfront venue, than the festive music and tantalizing smells of German fare was the next likely culprit.Vendors Brats Sensation and The Germans provided traditional mouth-watering German cuisine at prices too incredible to pass up, making the alluring taste of Germany all the more appealing. Music was in the air this month with acts like John Legend, Arturo Sandoval, and Rock the Park dancing through the hearts of music lovers all over the Tampa area. Smooth and soulful Grammy winner John Legend crooned his way through Ruth Eckerd Hall on October 16th, proving why he was voted one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people. Concertgoers in Clearwater were captivated by Legend’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart topping hits like “Get Lifted,” “Ordinary People,” and “Wake up!” John Legend wasn’t the only Grammy winner to visit Ruth Eckerd Hall in October; Arturo Sandoval wowed fans on October 27th performing his newest release “Dear Diz” and delighted them with his masterful skills in jazz trumpet and the

frugal horn. If the German music of Oktoberfest didn’t get your toes tapping, then the exciting musical showcase at the same venue on October 4th would have enticed you to strap on your dancing shoes. Curtis Hixon Park held its free monthly music event downtown, introducing 3 local musicians. Music of all genres was explored which made the diverse event enjoyable for listeners of all ages. October is known for candy and beer, but who knew vegetables were also a tradition in the Tampa area? Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park welcomed the third annual Tampa Bay Vegfest, a vender run festival that caters to the vegan/vegetarian community. This October 16thevent included local restaurants, live music, healthy-living and eco-friendly merchants, entertainment for kids, and pet adoptions. Not only were all these exciting features offered at the Vegfest, but admission was free to everyone! Fun and energetic musicians Time of Our Lives, The TNT Blues Band, and the Tampa Bay Children’s Chorus were among the many talented acts that provided the entertainment for this unique bazaar. The veggies were fresh, the music was upbeat, and the atmosphere was refreshing. The music in Tampa was a feast for our ears, but the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions was a feast for our eyes. We all saw them compete in the London 2012 Olympic Games, and now American greats – Nastia Liukin (the 2008 Olympic All Around Gold Medalist),the 2012 Olympic Team Gold Medalists: Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, Mckayla Maroney, and Gabby Douglas (the 2012 Olympic All Around Gold Medalist). Fans were dazzled by the high-flying “Fab Five” who were accompanied by 2012 Olympian John Orozco, Johnathan Horton, and a variety of local gymnasts. This was a celebration of the sport and the accomplishments of the U.S.A team during the Olympic Games.< Know of a Not-To-Be Missed Event? Do Tell!

Accessories Make an Outfit By Ro Martinez Read more at: StyleToMe.com

“A jewelry show may consist of rings, bracelets, necklaces, ankle bracelets, earrings, pendants and even toe rings… Who can resist beautiful discounted jewelry with precious and semiprecious gems, cultured stones and crystals all mounted in gold or sterling silver when it is shown by a model with a great smile and flawless skin, who with slight movements, can make the jewelry sparkle.” > Accessories are like icing on the cake. Sure the cake tastes good without it, but icing makes the cake pleasing to the eye and adds just the right amount of sweetness, increasing its appeal. There is different icing for different events, the same holds true for accessories. A plain outfit may get you through the day but the right handbag or scarf can add color, texture or style. Accessories will get you noticed. People will be drawn to you as well. This is true at any age, from the young girl playing “dress up” as Jenna is in the photograph, to the older more conservative stylish woman. The above quote describes some of the accessories sold on TV during a jewelry show. What are other items considered accessories? Things like hats, sunglasses, scarves, belts and handbags will spice up any outfit. Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals, styles and number of accessories. ACCESSORIES ALSO: • Update last year’s outfit, making it exciting • Extend the season • Set you apart from someone wearing an identical outfit • Add personal style and color to a simple garment •Cover a stain with a scarf or brooch When the little black dress is a part of your wardrobe, at a moment’s notice you are ready for a date, dinner party, wedding or funeral. The same dress can take you to all those places with the right accessories. Knowing when to add or take away an accessory becomes easier with practice. Tawanna Larkin, Certified Image Consultant, says; “The sole purpose of accessories are to “add to” not “take away from” the overall appearance of your outfit. I prefer bold accessories with a hint of bling because they make a statement. Adding a sparkly belt to your outfit can transform your look from subtle to sublime!” One way to be ready to accessorize any outfit is to be organized so you can see at a glance what you have to work with. During your morning grooming routine and right before an event is not the time to search

Luxury ON STEROIDS

Celebrity Style

By Alyssa Thomann

> Living life as a celebrity means living the life of luxury. Put two of those celebrities together and in love and we’ve got a couple of high rollers willing to dish out the cash to give their sweeties what they want. When I think about luxury I think about the Michael Kors watch my boyfriend bought me last Christmas or that time we went out sailing in Canada. Celebrities think about luxury a bit differently.They take what I consider luxurious and put it on steroids. Just this year there have been some lavish purchases and plans made by some of Hollywood’s hottest couples.

car is the way to a man’s heart and I believe Kanye West agrees after seeing what he had up his sleeve for his new gal’s 32nd birthday in October. Indulging his sweetheart with a one million dollar birthday party on a private island should show his gratitude for his sleek new whip.With help planning from the other Kardashian sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, they were able to turn private island, Pine Cay in the Turks and Caicos, into party island. Pine Cay was swarming with some of Kim’s closest celebrity friends and family, a five-star chef and heaps of lavish gifts. It must be difficult birthday shopping for a woman who has it all, so why not get her an island? There is no island necessary for couple, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, this birthday, only the open waters and the South of France – oh and a private super-yacht! Beyoncé, who turned 31 this September, decided to spend this year’s birthday a bit less flashy and lot more intimate with a luxurious, private yacht trip through the Mediterranean Sea in the South of France.

STYLETOME.COM


TOYS ::

> The 2013 Agera R has all the features and functionalities of previous year models, but also features new and unique solutions to enhance performance and visual appearance even further. Example of these enhancements are; Visible carbon area on the front bonnet and bumper, new front side winglets, revolutionary Aircore carbon fiber wheels, the new Aero exhaust, the increased power and the raised rpm limit. Koenigsegg was the first Hypercar manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. The Agera R, based on the highly competitive Agera, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 biofuel. Among many differences to the standard Agera, the Agera R has an upgraded fuel and engine management system with enough flow capacity to generate 1140 hp and 1200 nm of torque on E85 and E100 biofuel. As there is less energy content per given volume in these biofuels compared to normal petrol, the fuel-system has to manage a flow that is similar to a 2000hp petrol engine, which means that the Agera R’s return-less fuel system has the highest capacity of any car presently in production.

of the turbine wheel and axle and therefore gives improved response. Koenigsegg reinvents the wheel and presents other exciting features for the 2013 Agera range. 1. The 2013 Agera R features the world’s first hollow, one piece, super light carbon fiber wheel, using a proprietary method developed by Koenigsegg named Aircore™ Technology. The Aircore™ wheels save close to 20kg in unsprung mass, while providing great integrity and safety. The only metal part in the wheel is the tire valve – the rest is all once piece hollow carbon. 2. The Agera and the Agera R have the first production engines in the world to use nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves, from ANS, for reduced friction and fuel consumption. 3. New in-house developed engine management system, which provides added functionality whilst still meeting all OBD II regulations.

5. Koenigsegg reinstates its co-operation with Swedish shock manufacturer Öhlins Racing. Together they productionalized Koenigsegg´s unique Triplex suspension, that becomes standard on the 2013 Agera R. 6. KES (Koenigsegg Electronic Stability) is now standard on all Koenigsegg models. 7. A new, lighter rear exhaust section has been developed for the Agera R, which also improves the performance of the rear diffuser. 8. New front/side winglets for the Agera R provide 20kg more downforce at 250km/h, as well as reduced drag. <

4. The rev limiter has been raised from 7250rpm to 7500rpm, raising power from 940 to 960hp on 98 Ron (93 din) fuel for the Agera and from 1115 to 1140hp for the Agera R on E85.

As the Agera R is a flexfuel car, it can also be run on normal petrol. As 95 octane fuel has less octane than E85, the power is reduced to 960hp with 1100nm of torque due to the boost pressure and ignition timing being altered to match the fuel characteristics. In order to give the Agera R maximum flexibility when it comes to power delivery, Koenigsegg has implement the latest technology when it comes to turbo materials and design.This reduces the inertia

Tips to a Happier,

Thanksgiving THIS YEAR BE THANKFUL FOR A THANKSGIVING YOU GET TO ENJOY WITHOUT THE WEIGHT GAIN!

By Riesa Pascal Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> When it comes to being thankful, we have plenty to be thankful for. As we all know, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and when that day finally comes, most of us are all thankful for the same thing – good food and lots of it! Something that we aren’t so thankful for afterwards? The guilt of overeating and the weight gain that typically follows. Putting on pounds during the holidays is so common that many people are both expecting and accepting that it will happen to them, but this doesn’t need to be the case. It is very possible to experience a satisfying Thanksgiving dinner while watching your weight and that doesn’t mean a strict diet of salad and water. If you follow these simple tips, you’ll get to enjoy your holiday favorites this year without the guilt or the weight. The first tip is to simply make sure you eat a normal breakfast and lunch during the day. You might think skipping meals and saving your calories for the big dinner is a good idea, but more often than not it leads to you overeating and adding even more calories to your intake. While we’re on the subject of calories, let’s talk about your Thanksgiving day cooking. One great tip for a healthy Thanksgiving day is to try easing up on the

sugar and fat in your food. It doesn’t need to be hard-core recipe changes. Something as simple as using a fat-free chicken broth for your gravy is a great way to start. I promise no one will notice the difference in your cooking if you cut out a few calories here and there by using lower calorie substitutes. The next tip is a crucial one when it comes to watching your weight during this holiday season. Three words, friends...Watch. Your. Portions. There’s always going to be plenty of options at the table on Thanksgiving, but having it there doesn’t mean you have to take it all. A Thanksgiving meal is just that – a meal! A meal made up of many different items that you could eat all year long if you wanted to. Instead of filling up your plate with everything, choose to fill it with small portions of traditional holiday favorites and if you’re feeling full, don’t go back for seconds just because everyone else is. Leave the stuffed feeling for the turkey. Besides, if you ask me, leftovers are much better the next day anyways!

Finally, the most important tip I have for you is to simply remember the reason for Thanksgiving and the holiday season. Don’t get wrapped up in your weight loss and dieting. Simply be aware of your eating habits and focus on not putting on more weight, as opposed to losing the weight you have. Please realize that Thanksgiving isn’t just about the buffet table. It’s also about family, friends and quality time. Take a healthy, bonding walk with your loved ones after dinner and let this New Year’s be the one where you don’t have to make that resolution to you-know-what.<

Investing When Interest Rates Are Low Photo By Steven Miller

Nicholas J. Russell, CRPC Founding Partner Sunrise Wealth Advisors 6052 Turkey Lake Road, Ste. 101 Orlando, FL 32819 P:407-237-0117 C:407-754-5828 F:407-237-0118 nrussell@sunrisewealthadvisors.com www.sunrisewealthadvisors.com

STYLETOME.COM

> More and more lately I’ve been approached by people seeking my advice who are concerned with how to invest in such a low interest rate market. I hear statements like, “CDs aren’t paying anything!” and “What happens when interest rates finally rise?” Well, in my opinion, people do have reason to be concerned. Interest rates have been exceptionally low for three years now and treasuries are flirting with all-time lows. Not only that, but the market has continued to be quite volatile which only punishes risk-averse investors even more.

rates are at historical lows, and the rate is locked in for a long time, when rates go up and better options are available for investors, this bond fund isn’t as attractive. Unfortunately, this isn’t like when you are out at a bar and someone doesn’t find you attractive. When that happens you smile, walk away, and find someone else to talk to. When bonds lose value it means real money losses - money losses that are ironically coming from the investments that people are flocking to in the masses to reduce risk and preserve their capital.

If you are retired or approaching retirement, capital preservation is important, but you also want your portfolio to outpace inflation in order for it to last throughout retirement. Even for investors with a longer time frame who want to be properly diversified, where do you find historically lower volatility investments, like bonds, that are offering palatable dividends? So how do you factor the prospect of continued low interest rates into your investment strategy?

No, I don’t have a crystal ball. Moreover, I don’t know when interest rates may rise. But, if it is logical to believe that bonds lose value when interest rates rise, and they are currently at historically lows, then what are you to do? There are other options, whether you focus on shorter-term bonds, preferred stocks, UITs, ETFs, or non-traded investments that are prepared for a rising interest rate market, it is important that you review your portfolio. Look through your investment holdings and meet with your advisor to discuss where you currently stand and what changes you may need to make. If you do not have someone to talk to or would like to seek out a second opinion, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I would be happy to review your accounts and discuss this and any other concerns or questions you may have.<

Bonds, and bond mutual funds, have seen more inflows of cash from investors in recent years than stocks even though interest rates and yields have not been offering much in return. There are a few glaring issues here. First, the yield available in a welldiversified, long-term bond fund on average isn’t even keeping up with today’s inflation rate. Secondly, if interest rates begin to rise, these bond funds may lose value. Consider what these bond funds own… BONDS! Bonds that are long-term, sometimes 30+ year agreements to pay a certain interest rate for borrowed money. Well, if interest

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW

IRS TARGETS OFFSHORE CREDIT CARDS - BY MARK L. HORWITZ > The IRS and Department of Justice have expanded efforts to uncover offshore accounts by tracking credit card use. The IRS has named this new effort Offshore Credit Card Program (OCCP).

The IRS efforts include issuing John Doe summonses to obtain information from VISA, Master Card and American Express. In addition, the IRS has summoned information from Credomatic, a Florida credit card processor that services banks located in Caribbean tax-haven countries.

Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, P.A. 17 East Pine Street Orlando, FL 32801 P: 407-843-7733 F: 407-849-1321 mark@mlhorwitzlaw.com www.mlhoriwtzlaw.com

By issuing a John Doe summons to credit card companies and processors the IRS can discover the identity of individuals with offshore credit cards. After obtaining offshore credit card holders’ identities, the IRS will begin a civil examination and may commence a criminal investigation.

The “stick” is the threat of civil penalties and criminal prosecution upon discovery of unreported income and offshore accounts. The “carrot” is the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP) which results in significantly reduced civil penalties and eliminates criminal prosecution. Under OCCP the government will identify many offshore accounts. This program will result in many criminal prosecutions. Even though a John Doe summons has been issued, a person can enter the OVDP as long as the government has not yet received the information from the offshore banks, credit card companies or credit card processors.<

The OCCP is part of the IRS’s attempts to increase tax revenues. The government’s efforts are a carrot and stick approach. SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

Cosmetic Dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental treatment that improves the appearance of a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth, gums, and/or bite.The American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a formal specialty area of dentistry. Many dentists further their education by taking advanced courses with like minded dentists to be able to deliver a high level of dental skill and artistry. It is important when a patient seeks cosmetic dentistry that they seek references and be provided with comprehensive before and after photographs of patients treated by said dentist. The wonderful thing about dentistry and its specialties is that almost all treatments are to improve not only the oral health, but will also benefit the patient cosmetically by improvement in the face and smile and contribute to an enhanced self confidence. Each specialty has its particular expertise. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery focuses on surgical correction and enhancement of the face and facial skeleton. Orthodontics goal is to straighten teeth and correct bites and also assists the general dentist is setting up teeth for cosmetic restorations. Periodontics assist cosmetics in various treatment modalities. One way is with exposed tooth roots. Recession can cause sensitivity,bone, loss,and cavities as well. A gum graft can protect the teeth from these problems . Also; gum plastic surgery can get rid of a gummy smile and set the table for a beautiful smile with periodontal health. So as you can see the dentist develops a team of experts to assist in providing the patient with the optimum cosmetic result.

DON‘T MISS THE BEAT

> Camus said, “A work of art is a confession.” A Liar’s Broken Heart, the first solo CD from Tony Battaglia (aka, The Relic), is a true work of art. A Miami native, Tony has spent his life in the music business. He wrote and produced #1 hits for Puddle of Mudd and Shinedown… and created the platinum-selling debut for Mandy Moore. He starred as the singing voice for Bart Simpson in the classic *NSYNC episode…and wrote the title songs for the original Hairspray movie and Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Explains It All. He recorded with Keith Richards and Bill Cosby…and played guitar alongside Joe Walsh and Spirit’s Jay Ferguson. Tony’s been driven since he picked up his first guitar. Now he’s finally found the voice to share the experiences that shaped his life.

Aerosmith Album: Music From Another Dimension

Pitbull Album: Global Warming

A MASTER OF HIS OWN DISGUISE Tony came by music naturally. His father was a musician who played the guitar and there was always music around the house. But he also learned about pain and distrust at an early age. Tony was sexually abused by his grandfather and the priest at his church – dark secrets he never shared with his now-deceased parents. As a result, Tony became a “master of his own disguise,” as he says in the title song of A Liar’s Broken Heart, hiding his anger and suspicion behind biting sarcasm that pushed most people away. He spent hours a day holed up in his room, mastering the guitar; and, when he was ready, he took on the Miami music scene with a vengeance, showcasing his talents with local bands, blowing audiences and other musicians away. But he never really fit in. The same was true when his family moved to Central Florida: He could play and sing better than most, but his musical alliances were all short-lived. Connections soon led him back to Miami, where he worked with the Eagle’s producer, Bill Szymcyk, in Coconut Grove’s famed Bayshore Studios. He played with Joe Walsh and on Jay Ferguson’s Top Ten hit, Thunder Island. For a time, there was even talk of a solo album; but things went sideways and

Tony found yet another reason to distrust authority.

A DIFFERENT DIRECTION Undeterred, he decided it was time to take control – to take his talents elsewhere and use everything he’d learned about the industry to make music his way. So he packed up his equipment and moved to New York, New York, where he opened a small recording studio,The King of Queens (decades before the TV show). And he hustled. Before long, he was working with major artists like Keith Richards and Run-D.M.C. He made connections with major labels, television networks and movie producers. He moved to Manhattan and opened Studio 900 – still in operation. He produced a series of jazz recordings with Bill Cosby. He was successful, but he wasn’t satisfied. In the late nineties, he grew tired of long cold winters and returned to Florida. Work found him, and he continued to produce, engineer, and lend his vocal and instrumental talents to the constant barrage of projects that followed. Tony also found himself in uncharted waters – in love and expecting his first child. He “settled down,” bought a house and began raising a family, working out of a small home studio. Of course, when opportunity knocked, he traveled the country writing, playing, recording and producing. But his three children – Olivia, Ruby and Jake, now 18, 13 and 10 – became an unexpected priority in his life. He was determined to protect them – to keep them safe from the abuses he had suffered.

THE MUSIC NEVER STOPS While recording in a Central Florida studio in 2000, Tony was introduced to a gangly teenager from Bishop Moore High School named Mandy Moore. He and friend, Shaun Fisher, began working with her, crafting songs to fit the girl’s big voice. Tony tapped his contacts to help Mandy get a contract with Sony, and the result was So Real, a platinum-selling CD featuring the top-ten single, Candy.

In 2001, he became the only person to ever sing for Bart Simpson in the New Kids on the Blecch episode. Tony wrote all the songs – including Drop Da Bomb – and performed the singing voices for every boy in Bart’s band. Orlando’s *NSYNC also appears in the episode. In the years that followed, Tony produced albums for a number of hard rock/alternative bands. He wrote Save Me, the lead single off Shinedown’s second CD, Us & Them, which held the #1 position on the Active Rock Charts for 12 straight weeks. He also wrote Puddle of Mudd’s Psycho, the band’s second best-selling single ever in the U.S., which hit #1 on Billboard’s Rock Tracks. Through all the accolades and adulation, Tony still hadn’t expressed his own feelings in song. He communicated through the music of others, writing the words, playing the instruments and, often, telling his stories; but it wasn’t enough.As the music industry began to crash, so, too, did his home life.

“After a lifetime of hiding his secrets – and burying himself in the music industry – Tony finally turned his talents within, returning to his roots as a singer/songwriter/musician to produce his first solo album, A Liar’s Broken Heart.”

Czerwinski’s Specialty Wine & Cheese FACING THE DEMONS After a lifetime of hiding his secrets – and burying himself in the music industry – Tony finally turned his talents within, returning to his roots as a singer/songwriter/musician to produce his first solo album, A Liar’s Broken Heart. Love and loss. Pleasure and pain. Joy and anger. A Liar’s Broken Heart isn’t for the young and innocent. Tony paints pictures for people who’ve been tossed and turned by life…who understand beauty and sorrow. From the acoustic chords that kick off the title song to the haunting guitar solo in Someone Else, the CD’s climax, all 11 tracks on A Liar’s Broken Heart reverberate with raw emotion, revealing personal truths and reveling in shared experiences – a kind of adult angst that most will find familiar. On November 15th, Tony Battaglia (aka, The Relic) will share his music and bare his soul for all to see at The Abbey in downtown Orlando, with 10% of the proceeds going to the Downtown Arts District.

Dawn Berlanga-Helms, Esq. PERSONAL INJURY TRIAL ATTORNEY Photo By: Steven Miller

> “Love at first sight?” Fade back 50 years, Dawn’s father was enlisted in the USAF. A brilliant, mechanical man, he instinctively knew how things worked together. One sunny day in Spain, he laid eyes on an amazing woman, unlike any he’d ever met. He knew only that she filled a long empty silhouette in his soul. Translation book in hand, for he spoke no Spanish and she no English, he embarked on a mission to capture his love. Together they produced four lawyers and one doctor. Dawn is married to Roger Helms, like her, a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer around town for the last 30 years. He, like her father, was also a victim of love at first sight when he met Dawn, ironically enough by reaching out to discuss a legal issue. “She’s so much smarter than me,” Helms admits. “When we try cases together and a complicated question of law arises, I quietly take a seat, she stands, makes her case and and we seem to win.”

Dawn Berlanga-Helms, Esquire BERLANGA-HELMS, P.A. 1422 Hillcrest St. Orlando, FL 32803 P: 407-898-5400 F: 407-898-5444 www.BerlangaHelms.com

Dawn previously worked for insurance companies, having graduated with honors from Florida State College of Law in 1991, and was courted by some of the most prestigious firms. While still in law school she worked as an intern for the Florida House of Representatives’ Committee on Regulated Industries and as an extern for the State Attorney’s Office for the Ninth Judicial Circuit as a prosecutor. However, she found her calling in personal injury by helping folks against the big machine, government and insurance companies that

trampled the little guy. She opened her own office on Hillcrest, just one block from where her husband lived when he was born. As a lawyer and while running her practice, she lobbied on behalf on the Florida Justice Association for those in need. She served 2 terms on their Board of Directors, as well as for the Women’s Caucus for the FJA, and earning the coveted Silver Eagle Award for her work with the organization. She is an AV rated lawyer and has been featured in several publications as one of the top female lawyers in Central Florida. She is a Certified Circuit Court Mediator, and currently serves on the Florida Bar UPL Committee for the Ninth Judicial Circuit. Dawn’s compassion for the less fortunate gives her the most satisfaction. Dawn throws herself full force into helping her clients. She considers her clients friends and gives them her cell number. “I don’t like people being ignored, and I think I owe my clients the moral obligation to help them,” she says. “It is who I am.” Dawn has four children from a prior marriage, two at home, two at college. Between teenagers and a business relying solely on word of mouth, there’s seldom a boring moment. However, when they can, she and her husband slip away to the Bahamas where they keep a 52’ Hatteras to relax at the local spots. One such place is Sundowners on the sea of Abaco where Brian, the owner, serves up the island’s most tasty Goombay Smash and delivers the most stunning sunsets one can imagine. <

Maria DiBlasio Hale, Esq. ORLANDO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY Photo By: Steven Miller

> Maria Hale grew up in Central Florida and has a deep love for her community and its people. After being nationally recognized for her skills as a trial attorney, Maria Hale groomed her talents while working for the Pinellas County State Attorney’s office. As a prosecutor, Maria learned many valuable courtroom lessons and gained hours of litigation experience. Those tools paved the way for Maria to enter the private sector and give back to those who desperately needed her services. As a private criminal defense attorney, she now has the unique opportunity to take what she has learned and “pay forward” the benefit to her clients. As a tough-minded, former prosecutor, Maria Hale now seeks justice for her clients by protecting their rights when charged with a criminal and/or traffic offense.

ria has taken on a quite unexpected role. In addition to managing the firm and practicing law, she spends many hours serving on the Florida Grievance Committee and the Florida Code and Evidence Committee.

“I am asked all the time, ‘How can you represent people who have been charged with a crime?’ And the answer is simple. Justice is not just for one side of the aisle; however, justice is for all people, even the accused.” Maria Hale believes that all people have the right to a fair trial and competent legal representation. She appreciates the fact that most people who hire an attorney are taking a leap of faith that the attorney can help them navigate through the complex legal system. “Having someone place their liberty in your hands is such an unbelievable responsibility and one that I do not take lightly.”

In an effort to impact future lawyers, Maria serves as an adjunct professor at Barry University School of Law, where she also serves as Trial Team Coach. In her spare time, she is an active member of the Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers (CFAWL).

At Hale, Hale & Jacobson, P.A., Maria partners with her husband, Richard Hale, and friend, Lee Jacobson. Each partner brings a different dynamic to the firm and all seek to provide the best legal representation to the firm’s clients. As managing partner, Ma-

In addition, Maria Hale has found other ways to give back to the Central Florida community. As an active member of the Spring of Life Methodist Church congregation, Maria spends countless hours offering legal counsel to the indigent and gives generously her time to those who are less fortunate. Moreover, Maria and her partners share the common goal of making their community better. Hale, Hale & Jacobson, P.A. regularly supports many charities including the Central Florida Children’s Home and Hailey’s Hopes and Hugs Foundation.

Maria Hale has been listed in “Orlando’s Top Lawyers for Highest Ethical Standards and Professional Ethics” by Orlando Home & Leisure and Martindale-Hubbell as a Peer Review Rated “Preeminent” Attorney. In 2011, network television hired Maria as a correspondent on various legal topics. She was regularly featured on FOX News, HLN and MSNBC, amongst others. Maria has been married to Richard Hale since 2005, and they have two beautiful little girls: Melaina and Carrington. <

Some issues are complex and may include complications with termination of parental rights for birth parents, disrupted adoptions, or step-parent adoptions where the other natural parent may have abandoned the minor by leaving or being incarcerated. In international adoptions, complete citizenship rights may not attach to the adoption without a domesticated adoption occurring in the United States.

April Rager FOR YOUR REAL ESTATE NEEDS

> Being from Southern Georgia and raised by a strong southern family has made me who I am today. I moved to Central Florida in 1984 and have been here ever since. I was brought up to treat others as I would like to be treated and two specific things that were embedded in me were “pretty is as pretty does” and ���your education is one thing that no one can take away from you.” With that being said, I knew that it was up to me to better myself and become an independent, strong, woman inside and out! That has been very important to me as I raised a daughter after a divorce. It was my obligation to show her what “beauty AND brains” can do. By showing her that with hard work, determination and the right opportunities, you can be whoever you want to be!! But always strive to be the BEST! Real estate has given me more challenges, victories, headaches, and joy than I could have ever imagined! My family has been so supportive and surprised by what I have made of myself! I was a stay at home mom and wife for many years.That allowed me to be available, which was VERY important to me. Becoming a Realtor was more of a necessity, not a choice. However, being blessed with strong southern parents, we persevere. I was able to make a schedule that was conducive to being a single parent and provide

my daughter with many things that I would never have thought possible on my own. Having wonderful friends and clients that I have met while in this business has kept me working harder, learning all I can as the market changes and providing them with the best real estate experience I can. Life has way of throwing us all a curve ball, as it does, we have a choice. I chose to roll with the punches. To get back up and try, try again. Hearing my grandmother’s words in my ear always saying that my education is something NO ONE can ever take from me, has kept me striving for more knowledge. I have been in the industry for a while now, the market changes like the weather. It’s been my goal to keep up with the others that are making such a mark today. Being recognized as a Top Producer in this market, is a blessing. With that, I take every opportunity to learn, grow and experience more so that I can be the best at not only real estate, but a better example to all women. We need to be educated, strong and pretty inside! <

Karen J. Wonsetler, Esq. REAL ESTATE & ASSOCIATION LAW Photo By: Steven Miller

> Ever heard of a ‘dirt’ lawyer? Well, you’re looking at one. Despite the name, which implies getting your hands dirty, Karen Wonsetler is a real estate attorney, commonly referred to as a dirt lawyer because their job involves fighting for or protecting client’s land rights.

Karen Wonsetler KWPA 860 North Orange Ave., Suite 135 Orlando, FL 32801 P: 407-770-0846 F: 407-770-0843 www.KarenWonsetlerPA.com

STYLETOME.COM

After being admitted to state and federal court in 1998, Karen Wonsetler began to carve out a niche as a real estate attorney in Central Florida. A proud graduate of the University of Florida College of Law, Karen has built a successful law firm anchored by her outstanding staff, managed by Alana Dietel [graduate of the University of Central Florida’s Masters of Business Administration], and associate attorneys Kimberly Soto [graduate of George Washington College of Law] and Anne Marie Rossi [graduate of Florida State College of Law]. Her secret weapon at the office is her husband of 10 years. Raymond Lam, an aerospace engineer turned small business owner, runs the firm, allowing her to do what lawyers do best, focus on clients. Ray is famous for answering after hour calls to the firm, whether it’s late at night or on the weekends, because the firm is dedicated to supporting its clients when emergencies arise. Karen and Ray’s son, Alex, now eight, grew up thinking the correct way to answer a telephone was with the greeting “Hello, Law Office, can I help you?” rather than simply saying “Hello.”

SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

In addition to her busy transactional and litigation practice representing national and private lenders, commercial and residential land owners, and more than 200 central Florida homeowner’s and condominium associations, Karen often accepts pro bono cases in matters where she feels there would otherwise be an injustice and miscarriage of justice. Karen frequently will discuss current trends and issues in the law with news reporters and she never fails to deliver a reasoned analysis along with a passionate advocacy for the rule of law. When not practicing law as a lawyer, Karen enjoys her yearly stints as a Special Magistrate conducting ad valorem taxation exemption and classification hearings in a number of Central Florida counties. As a Special Magistrate, Karen has the ability to act as a finder of fact and judge over legal matters involving homestead exemptions, military, scientific, literary, educational and religious exemptions, as well as agricultural classification disputes between property owners and the local property appraiser’s offices. The experience she has gathered from conducting thousands of these quasijudicial hearings since 2006 has strengthened her resolve to lay the groundwork to become a county court judge in the coming years.<

Girl On Fire

Hit artist Alicia Keys’ is back with a smoking hot new single. Get ready to feel the flames! By Riesa Pascal Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Through her undeniable talent as an R&B singer-songwriter, Alicia Keys has become a name synonymous with quality and success. She reached international stardom in 2001 at the tender age of 20 and now – 11 years, 4 albums and numerous awards later – she’s out to show the world she has no plans of stopping this high-speed train. As her brand new album is appropriately named, Alicia Keys is clearly a “Girl On Fire” and she is burning bright. The spark that fueled those flames was ignited 24 years ago in a 7-year-old girl named Alicia Augello Cook. Alicia was living in Harlem with her single mom and had just begun learning classical piano at her mother’s request. Little did they know just how hard Alicia would fall in love with music and how hot that passion would burn. She began writing her first songs just four years later and at age 12, Alicia enrolled in the prestigious Professional Performance Arts School in Manhattan where she majored in choir and furthered her vocal skills. At just 16 years old, she graduated as class valedictorian, proving she had both talent and brains. Soon afterwards Alicia Cook took on a stage name and became the artist we’ve all affectionately come to know and love as Alicia Keys. In 2001 Keys released her debut album, Songs in A Minor which not only birthed the mega-hit “Fallin” (which won five Gram-

my Awards), but the album also sold 50,000 copies during its first day alone. It soon went on to reach 12 million copies worldwide resulting in Keys being named both best-selling new artist and best-selling R&B artist of 2001. From there Keys’ career continued to take off and in 2003 she released The Diary of Alicia Keys which sold 8 million copies and earned her 4 more Grammy Awards. Over the course of the next 6 years, Keys went on to release a record breaking MTV Unplugged album and an additional 2 more albums. 2007’s As I Am sold over 700,000 copies in its first week, giving Keys the largest first week album sales of her career and her fourth consecutive number one album on the Billboard 200 chart. As I Am’s lead single was “No One” and the hit song became her first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. 2009’s The Element of Freedom was Keys’ next album and although it was her first to never reach number one on the Billboard 200, she still had much to celebrate. The Element of Freedom peaked at #2 in the US, sold over 400,000 copies in its first week and became her first album to ever hit #1 In the United Kingdom. Keys’ signature voice and original songwriting combined with her beautiful piano playing are only a few reasons why she has achieved that much deserved global success. Keys is much more than just a musician though. She also enjoys live-action acting and often lends her voice for animated roles

as well. In 2010, this singer-songwriter-pianist-actress added two more roles to that already impressive list. In July of that year, Keys married hip-hop recording artist Swizz Beatz and gave birth to her first child, a son named Egypt. Thankfully her new roles as a mother and wife haven’t slowed her down or put an end to the spark that first ignited in her so long ago. In fact, that spark is now a full-fledged fire. On November 27th, Keys releases her fifth album “Girl On Fire.” The first single and title track was released on September 4th and the following day it became her 25th hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Just one day later, Keys got to perform the song for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards with two very special guest cameos from fellow ‘girls on fire’. Hip-Hop sensation, Nicki Minaj rapped a verse and Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas showed off some of her gold-medal winning skills right on stage. “Girl On Fire” has since been released in two different versions. There’s a slow “Bluelight” version and the upbeat “Inferno” version with Minaj. Both are already garnering much attention, but there are plenty of other songs to keep a lookout for when the new album hits shelves. Be sure you’re there are November 27th to get your copy of this album that Keys has stated she hopes will “liberate” and “empower” her fans. With her talent, I don’t think that’ll be a feat too hard to achieve. <

KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions - acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor. The Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog. Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises,

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong’s phenomenal success began on the stand up comedy circuit which led to 9 hit comedy albums and 8 hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade. With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech and Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, Los Cochinos, released in 1973. Big Bambu, their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years.

ment to go to work. Still on probation, Madea is not a star candidate for employment, no way, no how but she has to fulfill her community service obligations. In Tyler Perry’s “Madea Gets a Job,” Madea’s unconventional job highlights an inevitable situation we must face – getting old. You will find that nursing homes can put a strain on family relationships and the hardships some families encounter after making that most important decision for our loved ones. Madea, lady of wit and wisdom brings out the best of a situation (and there are a lot of situations in this production.) She will always tell you the truth whether you like it or not. This is a very high-spirited and uplifting performance from a collection of talented and exceptionally seasoned cast. You’ll laugh until it hurts and with so many twists and turns, you will never figure out the ending. Check it out – you already know what to expect from a Tyler Perry production!

> So when you get up in the morning and feel that crisp chill in the air, see how the leaves on the trees are changing their color or the heater in the house is finally being cranked up, you know one thing is certain. Fall is here and you don’t live in Central Florida!! But it does mean, for me anyway, the best season is finally here. Tis the season for pairing wine and food and that always brings a smile to my face. Those certain fall flavors we only taste this time of year are screaming to be paired with a great bottle of wine and I am here to help you pick and choose the right one for this time of year. For me the holidays during the fall point to red wine as a showcase for those big family meals around the table. Just ask your Thanksgiving turkey and he will tell you he prefers to be hooked up with a silky Pinot Noir or a spicy, sexy Syrah. There is a place for white wines as well but I think this is the time for those “other” red wines to shine. Wines such as Pinot Noir and Syrah, as well as a couple of others like Grenache and Beaujolais, really like and need the spotlight this time of year. Now you can find certain varietals of these wines in more than one corner of the world. I am not here to tell you where your bottle should be from or how much it should cost. The important thing is you enjoy it with whatever meal you have in front of you. Pinot Noir has quickly become and stayed as one of my favorite wines to drink this time of year. New World Pinot Noir is a versatile red wine that can cozy up to all types of dishes from turkey and duck to your smoked meats or fish. New World Pinot’s typically have a nice explosion of

STYLETOME.COM

fruit up front and finish with an elegance found rarely in most other varietals. The Old World Pinot’s, such as Burgundy, usually take on a more earthy characteristic. Roasted meats are a must to pair with Old World Pinot Noir. Pumpkin or butternut squash that has been kissed with nutmeg and cinnamon are happy to sit next to Pinot’s from the old world. Thanksgiving is an obvious time to have one or four bottles of Pinot Noir sitting on that table throughout the feast. Mix it up and try different Pinot’s from different parts of the world and you will soon be hooked like me. Syrah, or Shiraz if you prefer, is also a showstopper for any fall feast or holiday shindig. While Syrah is usually found on labels from Europe and the United States, Shiraz comes to us from “down under,” as well as South Africa. I find Shiraz from Australia can really pack a peppery punch but still have an abundance of soft fruit. Both will have that nice kick of spicy fruit and even hints of chocolate showing up on your palate. These wines pair up nicely with smoked meats or wild game if that’s your pleasure over the holidays. Look for names such as Cote du Rhone or Cote du Rotie if you really want that old world style to pair rustic meats or vegetables with. One of my favorite pairings is a nice bottle of Cote du Rotie with bacon inspired dishes or bacon dipped in dark chocolate. Syrah to me is one of those mysterious mistresses that should always be at the party but you are not sure how much trouble she is going to cause. A couple of other fun wines to have during this season are not as well received for some reason. Grenache is a little more accepted as being a great wine while Beau-

jolais is like the kid who is picked last for the baseball game. I hope we can change that perception, as Beaujolais should be the big surprise for anybody who opens a bottle for Thanksgiving dinner. Grenache is usually found as a varietal in several types of blends, most notably Chateauneuf du Pape or G.S.M’s (look it up.) The Australians have done a great job with this varietal as a standalone wine. Grenache is a good option for those vegetarians out there who still put out the big spread over the holidays. Beaujolais Nouveau is one of those wines people usually have seen as cheap and around at every giant grocery store chain for years. I am telling you grab a bottle for Thanksgiving and you will not be disappointed. The annual release of this varietal is a big event in France, happening on the third Thursday of November, every year. It is a wine that is very young and therefore is a very fruit forward wine. My favorite pairing is that turkey sandwich you make the day after Thanksgiving with some leftover cranberry sauce. It is always at the right price and can dance playfully around all those other big, serious wines it sits next to on the table. Regardless if you like the big huge holiday banquet with roasted meats and wild game or you choose the light vegetarian path, you can always find a wine to pair with your choice. It is just this time of year with all the changes outside, mostly, and the foods we usually only get to see and taste once or twice a year, these wines shine brighter than most. So this fall season reach for one of these “other” red wines and be pleasantly surprised. Beaujolais will be grateful to you and so will I.<
