So much art to see, and so little time! Need some help to navigate Art Basel this weekend? Here are some of the best stops to make. A veteran member of Jackson Health System’s governing board is pushing hard to quickly replace Chief Executive Eneida Roldan, who announced last week she will leave when her contract expires at the end of May. ‘‘We need to move on,’’ Jorge Arrizurieta said Friday. ‘‘We need someone who can actually do things now.’’ He recommended appointing an interim leader, perhaps with the title of chief restructuring officer, starting Jan. 1. He proposed Ted Shaw, who has been serving as interim chief financial officer. Arrizurieta is just one of many policy makers who are weighing in about what should be done to replace the leader of one of South Florida’s largest employers — a pressure-cooker job that will involve reversing huge financial losses the past couple of years while dealing • TURN TO JACKSON, 2A Doug Aitken’s wall sculpture of clear plastic letters contains plants, drooping moss and driftwood. BY FABIOLA SANTIAGO [email protected] Overwhelmed by Basel Dazzle? From the giant pink snails creeping toward the Miami Beach Convention Center for Art Basel Miami Beach to the monumental sculptures strewn along the bay downtown, this place is dressed up in art, indoors and out. Satellite fairs, pop-up art tents, museum shows, private collections, sculpture parks, graffiti walls and murals. ‘Bar,’ an installation by Brazilian artist Laura Lima, is set up like a beer joint, with a waiter to fill beer glasses that are drained by a mechanism inside the tables. Good art, bad art, so-so art. Way too much art. No one has time to check out everything, but a Miami Herald staffers’ summary of don’t-miss works may help stave off the Basel-frazzle syndrome of too much to see, too little time: • Let’s go right to always-popular sex-themed art. Some works — a color photograph of a young woman strolling naked through a museum comes to mind — are too racy for a family newspaper. You won’t see the whole work pictured with this story, but you can Google Nude in the Museum by Cristina Lucas or, better yet, visit her at the Convention Center booth of Galeria Juana de Aizpuru from Madrid.

In stark contrast to Ohio’s newly elected Republican governor who won on a jobs platform similar to Scott’s, Florida’s new governor has yet to name a single person to his administrative team four weeks after the election. Kasich has named five. Scott has instead spent much of the past month traveling the country in his new head-of-state status and naming 189 advisors to his transition team. He has yet to pick his chief of staff or name the heads of any of Florida’s nearly 30 state agencies under his control, including those that oversee Florida’s 102,000 prison inmates, 582,000 elementary school students or 2.5 million people on food stamps.

Trust Chairman John Copeland said he supported Shaw continuing in some capacity. ‘‘Ted Shaw has been very helpful and instrumental. . . . We have to figure out how to craft the right role’’ for Shaw, he said, noting that county Commissioner Natacha Seijas had also urged Shaw as interim CEO. Copeland called it ‘‘premature’’ to suggest what role Shaw will play. good initiatives already under way and she didn’t want to see them stopped. ‘‘We don’t need to be rushing’’ to find a replacement. ‘‘Plenty of people want that job.’’ She said she has already been contacted by ‘‘many.’’ Jackson unions generally have a member on the CEO search committee. Meanwhile Copeland, who will lead the search, said he hasn’t heard from any potential candidates. ‘‘The fish aren’t jumping . . .’’ A debate about hiring an interim CEO is based at least partly on how long it will take to find a permanent replacement. Roger Quick, head of the Chicago search firm of Quick Leonard Kieffer, which did a national search in 2009 that resulted in Roldan’s selection, said his firm is ready to start as soon as it gets the go-ahead. ‘‘Jackson is an amazing place,’’ Quick said, with its status as a teaching hospital serving the poor and the uninsured. He said a search is likely to attract many top applicants, despite recent negative publicity. ‘‘When you Google ‘Jackson,’ it kind of takes your breath away. Yes, it has challenges, but there are many pluses, too.’’ ROLDAN’S ROLE Angel Medina, the Trust’s vice chair, said he had some concerns about how effective Roldan would be in the next few months as a departing executive. ‘‘A lame duck is a challenging situation,’’ he said. ‘‘No one questions that her heart and her soul are in the right place. ‘‘I like the idea of not an interim CEO but a CRO. We don’t have time for a lot of babysitting. A lot of tasks need to be done.’’ Other Trust members don’t want a fast change. ‘‘A temporary or a political appointment is a basic mistake,’’ Mark Rogers said. Joaquin del Cueto said, ‘‘I’m going to support her through her contract term.’’ Martha Baker, president of SEIU Local 1992, LENGTHY PROCESS said Jackson had many Quick said it’s likely to The executive committee is expected to discuss selecting a search firm at a Dec. 14 meeting. report.’’ That means Jackson may have to up its salary offering to attract the right candidate. Roldan earns $665,000 a year. Her predecessor, Marvin O’Quinn, started at $550,000 and saw his pay climb to $826,967. take 90 to 180 days to come up with a list of finalists for Trust consideration. Copeland thinks a search is more likely to take six to nine months. One hangup: A search firm has yet to be appointed. Copeland said the Trust’s executive committee is expected to discuss selecting a search firm at a Dec. 14 meeting. The other big issue is how hard it will be find qualified candidates. GEORGE BURGESS? One rumored candidate may be County Manager George Burgess — a possibility that is raising considerable buzz at County Hall. The Office of the County Manager was recently abolished by voters, and many expect that Burgess’ managerial role will end when Mayor Carlos Alvarez leaves office. Burgess did not respond to three requests for comment, but others were willing to talk about him. Arrizurieta, the leading proponent of getting Jackson out of county control, is dead-set against it: ‘‘This system needs a turnaround type CEO immediately, and I don’t believe that Mr. Burgess is that person.’’ Medina, the vice chair, was less committal. ‘‘I don’t think the CEO has to be someone with a hospital background. We have technically competent people. What we need is a decisive leader to work within our organization and with our constituents.’’ POLITICAL FACTOR Michael Kosnitzky, a past Trust chairman, said that many top candidates will stay away because of political issues. Roldan said she decided to resign after an acrimonious phone call from MiamiDade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez. ‘‘It’s going to be very difficult to find someone to come into this environment,’’ Kosnitzky said. ‘‘You have a grand jury report which speaks to the issue of interference by county government — and a county government that thumbed its nose at that GOVERNOR-ELECT No hires yet for Scott’s team • SCOTT, FROM 1A elected governor, Jeb Bush, had selected secretaries of labor, health and children and families, named a chief of staff, a legislative affairs director, and a communications secretary. Four years ago, Gov. Charlie Crist had named his chief of staff and was distributing daily agendas of his transition team schedule. Scott’s longtime lawyer and confidante, Enu Mainigi, is controlling much of the selection process, searching for new hires with corporate experience. She said Friday the first significant appointments could still be weeks away. Mainigi defends the process as deliberate and said some positions may remain open or be filled with temporary directors until after the Jan. 4 inauguration. ‘‘A few weeks here and there isn’t going to make a difference,’’ Mainigi said. ‘‘We want to have the right people in place and are not going to make appointments for the sake of making appointments.’’ The list of appointments, however, will only grow after the first of the year, when the terms of nearly 300 appointed positions — from the state Board of Education to mosquito-control districts — expire.

The committee members, beyond the top-level Transition Advisory Committee, have had little contact with Scott’s staff beyond introductory conference calls when they were briefed on state public record laws, given a code of ethics to sign, and asked to pay for their own travel to and from Tallahassee. ‘‘There are a lot of moving parts here,’’ said forIT’S A CHALLENGE mer state Sen.

George LeMieux, and two former Bush staffers, Sally Bradshaw and Kathleen Shanahan — are long-time Tallahassee insiders and were supporters of Scott’s primary opponent, Bill McCollum. Scott, who was elected as ‘‘a complete outsider,’’ is relying on staff with fewer relationships in the political world than governors before him, Ferre said. Mainigi ‘‘is unquestionably the leader,’’ he said. ‘‘This is the Rick Scott show. This is not the Republican Party of Florida show.’’ Scott, like Kasich, has spent much of the first four weeks since his election on the road, attending Republican Governors Association meetings in San Diego, the National Governors Association conference in Colorado Springs, visiting with the congressional delegation in Washington D.C. and meeting with President Barack Obama. Scott has also taken advantage of his newfound celebrity by appear- ing Thursday on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer and on Friday on Bloomberg TV. Building an administration from scratch in just 60 days is ‘‘one of the most difficult jobs I ever had because of the complexity of the work that has to be done in a 60-day period,’’ said LeMieux, who ran Crist’s transition in 2006 and later served as his first chief of staff. ‘‘You have to transition the leadership o f a $70-billion enterprise.‘ Most agency secretaries won’t be retained, but some have asked to stay on, such as Walt McNeil at Corrections, Frank Peterman (Juvenile Justice), Jim DeBeaugrine (Agency for Persons with Disabilities) and Cynthia Lorenzo (Agency for Workforce Innovation). ‘‘We’re finding good people,’’ Scott said this week. ‘‘There’s a lot of good people who want to serve the state and are not doing it because they want to make the most money. They’re doing it because they want to be part of improving this country and improving this state.’’ Mary Ellen Klas can be reached at [email protected] ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HA1A_021204 System MIAE by BSPYKER MAGENTA Time 21:49:01 Date 12/03/10 Story # 0 Story name HA1A_021204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user BSPYKER A , 2, A1 , Keyword: YELLOW BLACK |HA1A_031204Kg~ THE MIAMI HERALD BLACK |HA1A_031204Cn~ |HA1A_031204M¥~ CYAN MiamiHerald.com |HA1A_031204YA~ MAGENTA SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 A1 YELLOW 3A THE NATION I MORE COVERAGE, 4-6A South Motors Mazda southmazda.com WAR IN AFGHANISTAN Obama visits Afghanistan Holiday Sales Event! to pump up U.S. troops ■ Amid secrecy, presidential palace in Kabul rolled out the red carpet in advance of a planned 45-minute dinner meeting with Karzai and Obama, a fast-moving dust storm scuttled the event.

BY DION NISSENBAUM AND MARGARET TALEV McClatchy News Service KABUL, Afghanistan — President Barack Obama paid a surprise, three-hour holiday season visit to Afghanistan on Friday night in an effort to inject a jolt of determination to U.S. forces as he ponders how to close the conflict during his presidency. Amid tight secrecy, Obama flew into Bagram Air Base, where he told thousands of boisterous American service members that they’re turning the tide in the fight against Taliban insurgents and their militant allies. ‘‘We said we were going to break the Taliban’s momentum and that’s what you’re doing,’’ Obama said in his 20-minute address. ‘‘You’re going on the offense, tired of playing defense, targeting their leaders, pushing them out of their strongholds.’’ The Obama administration is in the final stages of evaluating the impact of his decision one year ago PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS/AP DURING RALLY: President Barack Obama greets troops at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. to send more than 30,000 new American forces to this country.

That gave political ammunition to congressional Republicans trying to retain the ban known as ‘‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’’ ‘‘It’s important that we’re clear about the military risks,’’ said Gen. George Casey, the Army’s top officer. ‘‘Repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ would be a major cultural and policy change in the middle of a war.’’ Both Casey and Marine Corps Commandant Gen.

BY DAVID LIGHTMAN McClatchy News Service WASHINGTON — A majority of President Barack Obama’s bipartisan federal debt commission members on Friday endorsed their leaders’ sweeping blueprint for slashing nearly $4 trillion from budget deficits over the next 10 years. But the 11 supporters of the 18member National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform ‘‘Moment of Truth’’ plan were short of the 14 needed to send the package to Congress for votes. Commission members nevertheless said their work was an important first step in the process of paring the record federal debt — now $13.8 trillion — and even most of the dissenters agreed. Whether the commission’s work results in change may depend largely on whether Obama, who appointed the panel, incorporates its recommendations into his federal budget blueprint early next year, and fights for them. The president made no commitments Friday. In a statement, he praised the commission’s work and said his budget director, Jack Lew, had invited all commission members to meet with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Lew. Obama urged all parties to keep open minds and ‘‘engage in the kind of honest conversation and cooperation that hasn’t always happened in Washington’’ to work together ‘‘to lift this burden from the shoulders of future generations.’’ Perhaps most striking, the plan got support within the commission across the political spec- trum, drawing votes from liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans. That may reflect that it operated in a far different fashion from the modern-day Congress. Commission members huddled together privately for months, building trust across party lines in one another’s good-faith commitment to grapple with serious issues, which helped pave the way for members to compromise. In contrast, members of Congress rarely work together across party lines in the modern era. They band together in tightly disciplined party caucuses during the workweek and flee the capital for long weekends to campaign at home rather than socializing together and building the relationships that help produce bipartisan legislation. Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin, D-Ill., a liberal, voted for the plan. Other lawmakers on the commission who endorsed the recommendations were Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., House Budget Committee Chairman John Spratt, D-S.C., and Republican Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Mike Crapo of Idaho and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire. NEW YORK DISASTER IN THE GULF Drivers livid after snow jam BP disputes spill size; f ine might be reduced BUFFALO, N.Y. — (AP) — Emergency procedures will be reviewed after a lake-effect snowstorm and a flawed response left hundreds of motorists stranded for hours on a highway near — of all places — Buffalo. New York State Thruway Authority Executive Director Michael Fleischer said Friday the agency should have closed nearly two dozen non-toll entrance ramps to Interstate 90 much sooner after jackknifed tractor-trailers blocked traffic just east of Buffalo, a city that prides itself on soldiering on during snowstorms that would cripple other towns. He also said officials should have done a better job alerting drivers that delays loomed ahead DAVID DUPREY/AP RETRIEVING CAR: Dan Foster checks out his towing bill Friday. He said he was stranded on the highway for 20 hours. and shouldn’t have waited so long to get help to the stranded motorists, some stuck for 20 hours or more. Fleischer said the agency would take ‘‘a comprehensive look’’ at how it can anticipate and react to similar situations. The Lake Erie-fed storm began Wednesday afternoon and continued through Thursday, burying parts of Buffalo and sur- rounding towns. Suburban Depew recorded 42 inches while Buffalo neighborhoods got 39 inches, according to the National Weather Service. Single storm totals that high are rare but hardly shocking on the shores of Lake Erie, which is why reports of cold and hungry motorists stuck for as long as 24 hours had some calling for heads to roll. WASHINGTON — (AP) — BP mounted a new challenge to the U.S. government’s estimates of how much oil flowed from the runaway well deep below the Gulf of Mexico, an argument that could reduce by billions of dollars the federal pollution fines it faces for the largest offshore oil spill in history. BP’s lawyers are arguing that the government overstated the spill by 20 to 50 percent, staffers working for the presidential oil spill commission said Friday. In comments the company submitted to the commission in October and obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, BP says the government’s spill estimate of 206 million gallons is ‘‘overstated by a significant amount’’ and the company said any consensus around that number is premature and inac- curate. ‘‘They rely on incomplete or inaccurate information, rest in large part on assumptions that have not been validated, and are subject to far greater uncertainties than have been acknowledged,’’ BP wrote. ‘‘BP fully intends to present its own estimate as soon as the information is available to get the science right.’’ BP’s request could save it as much as $10.5 billion or as little as $1.1 billion, depending on factors such as whether the government concludes that BP acted negligently. For context, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s entire federal budget for 2010 was $10.3 billion. President Barack Obama has said he wants Congress to set aside the money BP pays for fines for the Gulf’s coastal restoration.

Korea trade accord ■ The Obama administration moved forward on its first major trade agreement, including side concessions for U.S. automakers and beef exporters. BY KEVIN G. HALL McClatchy News Service ANTONIO SIERRA/AP IN CUSTODY: Mexican soldiers escort 14-year-old Edgar Jimenez Lugo, who is suspected of being an assassin for a drug gang. He says he was forced into the violence. Is 14-year-old an assassin? • MEXICO, FROM 1A ants in Mexico’s ongoing drug violence, which has left more than 30,000 people dead since late 2006. The youth said he’d been killing already for three years. News reports said Jimenez was a citizen of the United States, although U.S. Embassy spokesman Alex Featherstone said, ‘‘We have not confirmed this boy’s citizenship.’’ Security agents had been hunting for Jimenez since late October, when a video was posted on the Internet of the boy, sporting a mop of frizzy hair, holding an AK-47 assault weapon and posing with other gang members. One image showed Jimenez with an apparent victim whose eyes and mouth were taped shut. On the video, Jimenez casually says that he didn’t care whether he and his fellow gunmen got the right targets, just as long as they killed someone. ‘‘When we don’t find the rivals, we kill innocent people — maybe a taxi driver or a construction worker — so that we can get paid,’’ Jimenez said, adding that he earned $3,000 per hit. He said he’d personally killed four people. Mexican journalists who were present when soldiers turned the youth over to prosecutors in Morelos state Friday morning peppered the boy with questions. He said that the headless corpses of his gang’s victims were strung up from an overpass on a main highway leading to the capital. ‘‘Why did you kill them?’’ a reporter asked, according to a transcript on the website of the respected newspaper El Universal. ‘‘ ‘El Negro’ ordered me to. I got high on weed and didn’t know what I was doing,’’ Jimenez responded. ‘‘Why did you get into this?’’ ‘‘I didn’t get into it. They pulled me in,’’ the boy responded. ‘‘Are you sorry you did?’’ ‘‘Yes, I’m sorry I got involved with all this,’’ he responded. Arrested with Jimenez were two older sisters, and news reports said that one of them, 19-yearold Elizabeth, was a lover of Hector Beltran Leyva, the leader of a splinter faction of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel that operates out of Morelos state. News reports said the elder sister led a gang called Las Chavelas that took slain rivals of the Beltran Leyva group and dumped them on city streets. In a later video interrogation of Jimenez, the boy said he’d been involved with drug traffickers since age 11. President Felipe Calderón has pointed to the ever-younger ages of gunmen for the drug syndicates, especially in the northeastern border region, as a sign that cartels are facing problems recruiting fighters. Yet Mexico has an estimated seven million young people who can neither find jobs nor attend school, and many of them are tempted by easy money or motivated to join gangs out of anger and frustration over the killing of a friend or a parent. ‘‘We count some 20,000 orphans who have the choice of either being forgotten about or looking for some activity to help them survive,’’ sociologist Luis Gomez Sanchez told the Milenio television network. ‘‘These youngsters are cannon fodder for drug traffickers and their illegal activities.’’ WASHINGTON — The White House announced Friday the successful conclusion of an accord that will allow it to submit a long-stalled trade deal with South Korea to Congress. The side accord, which includes South Korean concessions for U.S. automakers, will supplement the trade agreement that the Bush administration negotiated to conclusion with South Korea but which the Democraticcontrolled Congress never acted on. U.S. automakers and beef exporters opposed the agreement on grounds that it didn’t do enough to knock down barriers to U.S. exports. The side accord addresses those concerns and allows the Obama administration to move forward on its first major trade agreement. The auto provisions won immediate support from the current chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Michigan Democratic Rep. Sander Levin, and his likely successor in the next Congress, Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Camp. ‘‘The changes announced to the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement today are a dramatic step toward changing from a one-way street to a twoway street for trade between the U.S. and South Korea,’’ Levin said in a statement. The agreement also won President Barack Obama rare praise from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. ‘‘This agreement will create thousands of new jobs, advance our national goal of doubling exports in five years and demonstrate that America is once again ready to lead on trade,’’ said chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohue. ‘‘The administration has done its part. Now it’s time for the new Congress to make passage of [the trade deal] a top priority in January. We will do everything in our power to round up the votes.’’ Obama took heat for not sealing the deal with South Korea during his recent Asia trip. Senior administration officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to comment freely, suggested Friday that the final deal justifies the decision to hold out for better terms than they could’ve gotten then. South Korean automakers Kia and Hyundai sell freely into the U.S. market, with low tariffs on their exports. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler have complained that South Korean tariffs and other barriers have effectively disadvantaged U.S. carmakers in their attempts to sell there. Under the side accord, South Korea would cut its 8 percent tariff on U.S. automobiles immediately to 4 percent, while the U.S. would maintain its 2.5 percent tariff on Korean-made autos for four years. In the fifth year, both nations would eliminate the remaining tariffs. NASA Shuttle Discovery still going nowhere FLOORING 99¢ sq.ft.

Discovery remains on the launch pad, holding equipment for the International Space Station. The launch team plans to conduct a fueling test by month’s end — rigging the external tank with gauges and sensors, then loading it up — in hopes of cracking the crack problem. ‘‘Analysis can only get you so far,’’ said shuttle program manager John Shannon. ‘‘It’s time to go test.’’ Bill Gerstenmaier, head of NASA’s space operations, said liftoff tentatively is set for around Feb. 3, the opening of the next practical launch window. That will push the final mission of shuttle Endeavour back a full month, into April. A series of unmanned cargo ships from other countries are due to fly to the orbiting lab in the next few months, complicating matters. Also on tap is the arrival of a new station crew in midDecember, via a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Six astronauts are assigned to the Discovery mission, as well as the first humanoid robot bound for space, Robonaut, which will stay packed aboard the shuttle. Gerstenmaier said the postponements should not affect NASA’s effort to secure funding for an extra shuttle mission next summer. Nor should they hinder space-station activities. NASA is retiring its shuttle fleet next year under the direction of the White House, after 30 years of flight. 11/26/10 9:59:29 AM ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HA1A_061204 System MIAE by BSPYKER MAGENTA Time 21:48:11 Date 12/03/10 Story # 0 Story name HA1A_061204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user BSPYKER A , 6, A1 , Keyword: YELLOW BLACK |HA1A_071204K©~ THE MIAMI HERALD |HA1A_071204C#~ BLACK MiamiHerald.com |HA1A_071204M4~ CYAN |HA1A_071204Y]~ MAGENTA YELLOW B onus holidaybuys SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 A1 7A Bonus Recliner Get the Presley Recliner for 199 $ $200 Discount with purchase of the 5 piece room group.

The hip-hop mogul has teamed up with Bombay Sapphire to create the Artisan Series, a two-day exhibit that features the work of 20 artists and benefits his Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. The artisan series was launched in June as a national search aimed at finding undiscovered talent in the urban art and photography world. On Saturday, Simmons and his big brother, Daniel, will host a private party at Paris Studios, where they will name two finalists of the series. He’s excited to see who wins. ‘‘It’s really my brother and Mark [Ecko] who were responsible for choosing the artists. I just helped with infrastructure.’’ Simmons is big on helping kids in the arts. ‘‘The goal of the party is to raise money so we can provide disadvantaged children with arts education,’’ he says. ‘‘Without the arts, schools are like prisons. Kids need a creative outlet. They need their imaginations to survive.’’ Speaking of survival, Simmons is hoping fans dig his new reality show on Oxygen. ‘‘It’s nutty!’’ he says. ‘‘But I like that people get to see all the things I do.’’ — MICAELA HOOD SCENE IN THE TROPICS ‘Jersey Shore’ might re-rear its head MiamiHerald.com/ Read Lesley Abravanel’s blog, Scene in the Tropics ROSSELLINI THE MIAMI HERALD Game-show host Wink Martindale is 77.

According to Page Six, producers want to film here again (if the cast doesn’t demand outrageous fees to comPAULY D mit). And people wonder why Miami has been demoted on those ‘‘Cities With Beautiful People’’ rankings. Speaking of Jersey, the show’s resident DJ, Pauly D, in town for a spinning gig at the Seminole Hard Rock, was seen Sunday having lunch at the Clevelander with reality star Brody Jenner and a few others. Shockingly, there was no alcohol consumed, but perhaps they were too busy gawking at the bar’s live body art show? Lunching at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink Tuesday: Pharrell Williams and girlfriend Helen. Williams was the headliner along with his band N.E.R.D. at Wednesday night’s Paper Magazine/AOL/FriendsWithYou party for the inflatable Rainbow City installation in the Design District. Brooke Hogan was seen Saturday night at the new Miss Yip Chinese Cafe at 900 Biscayne with someone our spy described as ‘‘a handsome gentleman.’’ On Tuesday night, Miami Heat player Jamaal Magloire was there sipping on lychee mojitos and sharing lettuce wraps with friends. Self-professed amateur art collector Lance Armstrong was seen dining Tuesday night at Blue Door Fish.

Hamilton and Danny Glover caused a paparazzi frenzy when they stopped by Swiss-based Galerie Gmurzynska’s booth designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid. Checking into Shore Club Wednesday afternoon: Ben Stiller, who was later seen browsing solo at Basel’s Vernissage preview at the convention center. Wednesday night after dining at the Blue Door Fish at Delano with friends, world renowned photographer Sante D’Orazio celebrated the opening of his Priests exhibition installed in the hotel’s lobby. Isabella Rossellini, in town for the premiere of Seduce Me at the Wolfsonian FIU, stopped by Wynwood’s Soho Studios Thursday to check out the Arts For a Better World show, where she marveled at Joe Zammit-Lucia’s animal photography and the landscapes of Laurent Herari. She was later seen milling around Small Gift Miami’s whimsical homage to 50 years of Hello Kitty and her Sanrio friends. |HA1A_081204Yd~ MAGENTA calendar |HA1A_081204K#~ Glass designer Lolita Healy will sign copies of her new entertaining guide Martini Moments.

Unfortunately, because our divorces are occurring at the same time, great speculation has been cast on our friendship. My friendship with Tony Parker had nothing to do with the end of my marriage (which is painful enough without this added drama), and to assume that we had an affair is naive, ridiculous, and completely misguided.’’ She didn’t deny the texts, though.

The lame-duck session of Congress won’t take up the issue. BY JUAN O. TAMAYO [email protected] It’s official: The strongest congressional campaign in years to lift all restrictions on travel to Cuba is over. And the next two years of a GOP-controlled House don’t look good either. Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Ma., a leading backer of the bill to lift the sanctions, acknowledged this week that the lame-duck session of Congress will not vote on the measure. That meant the end of the most powerful and sustained effort in a Democratic-controlled Congress to allow unlimited travel to Cuba, a move backed by the powerful U.S. agricultural and business lobbies. Backers argued that most Americans favor lifting the restrictions, that the restrictions are unconstitutional and that expanding trade with Cuba would give a boost to the troubled U.S. economy. The bill, which also would have eased regulations on U.S. agricultural exports to Cuba, passed the House Agriculture Committee in June but stalled in the Foreign Affairs Committee amid opposition from sanctions supporters and election-year Congressional caution. No Senate committee voted on two similar proposals. ‘‘Even in arguing for a failed policy, when push comes to shove, when it comes right down to it, the other team has fewer people but greater passion,’’ said Sarah Stephens, director of the Center for Democracy in the Americas in Washington, which favors improved relations with Cuba. Opponents and backers of Cuba sanctions already are thinking about the next two-year session of Congress, where Republicans will assume control of the House and Democrats will retain control of the Senate. About 30 sanctions opponents plan to meet next week in Tampa to discuss ‘‘what went wrong and where do we go from here,’’ said Tony Martinez, a lawyer who writes for the antisanctions United States Cuba Policy & Business Blog. Many of the GOP freshmen in the next Congress have a libertarian streak and are likely to oppose government restrictions on personal freedoms, said Anya Landau French, director of the U.S.-Cuba Policy Initiative at the New America Foundation in Washington. Committed to cutting government spending, the new Republicans also may seek to reduce the budgets for enforcing the U.S. sanctions on Cuba, Landau French added. But those arguments, said pro-embargo activist Mauricio Claver-Carone, don’t take into account the Cuban-American Republicans who will have leadership positions in the next Congress, and who argue that easing sanctions would only prop up a totalitarian regime. South Florida Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen is all but certain to chair the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Rep. Connie Mack is likely to chair its subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere. Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey is in line to chair the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere. What’s more, incoming Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. David Rivera may well push for legislation to tighten the sanctions. ‘‘We are worried that we will have to defend against nasty moves to tighten and retrench,’’ Mavis Anderson of the Latin American Working Group wrote in a recent message to fellow anti sanctions activists. If Congress can’t agree on lifting the travel sanctions, the Obama administration could at least ease them by changing the regulations for so-called ‘‘purposeful travel’’ already permitted for humanitarian, religious academic and other groups.

The report, posted Friday on several websites, lays out the broad outlines for ministry reforms in line with the Raúl Castro government’s campaign to slash state spending amid an economic crisis. Cuba has long boasted of its massive public-health system, although it was widely reported to have fallen into some disrepair after the collapse of Soviet subsidies in the early 1990s. The document does not mention how many ministry workers will be among the 500,000 state employees that Castro has said will laid off by the end of May. But it indicates the changes will be significant. Cuba, which already has tens of thousands of medical personnel working abroad under paying contracts with the host governments, also will seek to expand that sector, the report noted. — JUAN TAMAYO •BRAZIL ROUSSEFF NAMES CHIEF OF STAFF 21,777 Over 200 $ In Stock & Arriving Daily 2008 BMW X3 3.0i Automatic 26,777 $ Over 50 In Stock & Arriving Daily 2008 BMW 528i Automatic 28,777 Over 150 $ In Stock & Arriving Daily BRASILIA — Brazil’s president-elect on Friday named as her chief of staff a former aide to President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva who was forced to resign as finance minister in 2006 amid a corruption scandal. Congressman Antonio Palocci will head Dilma Rousseff’s team when she takes power Jan. 1. Chief of staff is seen as the most powerful Cabinet post. Palocci resigned from Silva’s Cabinet after a former caretaker accused him of frequenting a house where lobbyists threw parties with prostitutes and apparent bribe money arrived by the suitcase. Palocci denied that he ever set foot in the home. He was eventually charged with at least four crimes, but all the charges collapsed. The last was dismissed by the nation’s Supreme Court for lack of evidence in August 2009. Palocci guided Brazil’s economy to low inflation and steady growth from 2003 to 2005. •CHILE U.N. FORECASTS ECONOMIC GROWTH SANTIAGO — The U.N.’s Economic Commission for Latin America says strong exports and high commodity prices are fueling faster-than-expected economic growth in Latin America and the Caribbean. The region’s economy is expected to grow above the 5.2 percent previously forecast for 2010. That’s according to Alicia Barcena, executive secretary of the commission, who spoke to The Associated Press. Looking ahead to 2011, Barcena says the economy is expected to keep expanding, albeit at a slower clip. A full report is expected on December 13. The region’s economy contracted 1.9 percent last year. 2007 BMW ■ Haiti’s electoral authorities annul the vote and the nine-member electoral council be scrapped and replaced. ‘‘We’re asking the authorities to respect the Haitian people who voted,’’ said presidential candidate Jean-Henry Céant, a notary and lawyer who called the vote a ‘‘masquerade.’’ Céant announced that the group would be leading another protest on Sunday. Electoral law says that political rallies are prohibited during the electoral period. Preliminary election results are expected on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Haitian President René Préval’s political party INITE asked electoral officials to apply the law, which forbids protests during the actual election period. The issue was raised by Préval’s presidential pick Jude Célestin, who broke his silence and made his first public appearance since election day. Célestin, who said he was confident he would emerge among the top vote-getters of the first round, was one of two presidential candidates who attended the meeting with the electoral council. Five other candidates, including Michel ‘‘Sweet Mickey’’ Martelly and Mirlande Manigat, sent representatives. As of Friday, only 80 percent of the tallies had been counted at a tabulation center near the Portau-Prince International Airport that has now received intense scrutiny by the United Nations, United States, Canada, and the Organization of American States/Caribbean Community. council acknowledged ‘imperfections’ during elections as the United Nations said the problems were worse than first thought. BY JACQUELINE CHARLES AND TRENTON DANIEL [email protected] PORT-AU-PRINCE — Haiti’s national election council apologized Friday for irregularities in the quake-battered nation’s presidential and legislative vote Sunday and promised to correct them before an expected second round of voting. ‘‘We would like for you to excuse the [Provisional Electoral Council] for all imperfections in the electoral machine,’’ said Pierre-Louis Oponte, executive director of the council. ‘‘We will do all we can to respect the law.’’ The apology came as the head of the United Nations said that ‘‘the irregularities now seem more serious than initially thought,’’ and as his Haiti representative warned that the country faces isolation from the world community if it doesn’t resolve its electoral crisis with transparency and credibility. ‘‘Whatever the complaints or reservations about the process, I urge all political actors to refrain from violence and to start discussions immediately to find a Haitian solution to these problems before a serious crisis develops,’’ U.N.

MVR# 94100248. LONDON — WikiLeaks struggled to stay online Friday as governments and hackers hounded the organization across the Internet, trying to deprive it of a direct line to the public. Like a fugitive moving from house to house, WikiLeaks changed the name of its website after a U.S. company stopped directing traffic to wikileaks.org. French officials then moved to oust it from its new home. ‘‘The first serious infowar is now engaged. The field of battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops,’’ tweeted John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the online free-speech group Electronic Frontier Foundation. His message was reposted by WikiLeaks to its 300,000-odd followers. Legal pressure increased on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after Swedish authorities revised a warrant for his arrest in response to procedural questions from British officials. Assange’s lawyer said that he is in Britain but that she hadn’t received a warrant by Friday afternoon. WANTED MAN The 39-year-old Australian is wanted on allegations of rape and other sex crimes that emerged after a trip to Sweden in August. Assange said that his arrest would do nothing to halt the flow of American diplomatic cables being released by his group and newspapers in several countries, and he threat- MARTIAL TREZZINI/AP RELENTLESS: Julian Assange, who is wanted in Sweden on rape charges, said his arrest won’t stop WikiLeaks. ened to escalate the rush of information if he is taken into custody. Hundreds of cables have been published by WikiLeaks and several newspapers in recent days. Assange said that all of the cables had already been distributed in a heavily encrypted form to tens of thousands of people. If something happens to him, he suggested, the password needed to decrypt the data will be released and all the secrets will go out at once. ‘‘History will win,’’ Assange said in a Web chat with readers of The Guardian newspaper, one of the media organizations helping to coordinate the documents’ publication. ‘‘The world will be elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you.’’ WikiLeaks doesn’t depend entirely on its website for disseminating secret documents; if it were knocked off the Web, the nationless organization could continue to communicate directly with news organizations. But the site provides a direct line to the public, fulfilling the organization’s stated goal of maximum distribution for the secret documents it receives from mainly anonymous contributors . In an online chat with readers of The Guardian, Assange promised to improve the availability of the website as soon as possible. ‘DEEPLY UNHAPPY’ ‘‘Rest assured I am deeply unhappy that the 3 μ years of my work and others is not easily available or searchable by the general public,’’ Assange said. EveryDNS — a company based in Manchester, N.H., that had been directing traffic to the website wikileaks.org — stopped doing so late Thursday after cyber attacks threatened the rest of its network. WikiLeaks responded by moving to a Swiss domain name, wiki leaks.ch — and calling on activists for support. By late Friday, WikiLeaks was up in at least three new websites. The loss of support from EveryDNS was just a minor annoyance because the site can leap from one name to the next, said Fraser Howard, a researcher with Internet security firm Sophos. ‘‘The whack-amole analogy is fairly good,’’ he said. KOREAN PENINSULA China remains passive as Korean standoff festers ■ South Korea’s new defense minister warned of retaliation against North Korea, while China has given little indication that it will rein in the North’s dictator Kim Jong-Il. BY TOM LASSETER McClatchy News Service BEIJING — South Korea warned Friday that it will order airstrikes if North Korea again launches artillery at the South, raising its military posture as Pyongyang reportedly deployed new rockets capable of hitting the South Korean capital. Appearing before the South Korean parliament, the newly appointed defense minister, Kim Kwan-jin, said at his confirmation hearing: ‘‘We will thoroughly retaliate to ensure that the enemy cannot provoke again.’’ Kim was named defense minister after a North Korean artillery barrage targeted the island of Yeonpyeong last week and killed two South Korean civilians and two marines. BOILING OVER Although the North and South have long traded threats, tensions on the Korean Peninsula now are at the highest level in decades. South Korea’s Yonhap news agency on Friday reported that North Korea had added 100 multiple- launch rockets to its arsenal of some 5,200 capable of hitting the South Korean capital. The agency also reported that South Korea planned to soon begin live fire artillery exercises near five islands in the Yellow Sea, including Yeonpyeong. Adding to the uncertainty about the standoff, China, the only power in the region with sway over North Korea, has given no indication that it plans to rein in the regime of Kim Jong-Il. An opinion column in China Daily, a state newspaper, emphasized Friday that North Korea has in the past repeatedly ignored Chinese officials who voiced strong opposition to Pyongyang staging longrange missile and nuclear tests. ‘‘The world,’’ said Sun Ru, a Beijing analyst, ‘‘has to understand that (North Korea) makes its security decisions independently.’’ Last month, Pyongyang unveiled a sophisticated uranium enrichment plant that could be used to help manufacture nuclear weapons and, earlier in the year, a reported North Korean torpedo attack sank a South Korean warship and killed 46 sailors. While China is the North’s main supplier of food and energy, the Chinese leadership has so far done little publicly other than call for talks between the two Koreas and their allies. Analysts in Beijing express discontent with Pyongyang, and a secret U.S. cable distributed this week by the WikiLeaks website indicated that younger Chinese officials are increasingly frustrated with North Korea’s volatility, though Beijing has not significantly shifted its diplomacy toward the North. EMBARRASSED ‘‘Sometimes North Korea’s behavior is not very satisfactory to us — they bring trouble to us, they embarrass us,’’ Su Hao, a prominent analyst at the Foreign Ministry’s Foreign Affairs University in Beijing, told McClatchy Newspapers this week. But he said the alternative to supporting Pyongyang was either a completely isolated North Korea that might stage significantly worse provocations, or a regime collapse that brings ‘‘a disaster spilling over’’ China’s border. ‘‘I don’t think that we can reconsider the relationship,’’ he said. There are also broader strategic implications since North Korea acts as a buffer between the mainland and U.S.-allied South Korea, an important factor for Chinese officials who worry that America is trying to contain Beijing’s power in the region.

Marianne Goebl who most recently headed international public relations and partnerships for Vitra, will move to Miami and take over in February. ‘‘Under the leadership of Marianne, we are confident that Design Miami will continue to grow while ensuring the fair’s position as the premier global forum on design,’’ said Craig Robins, principal of Design Miami and Design Miami Basel. Goebl replaces Ambra Medda, who co-founded Design Miami in 2005 and stepped down in the spring. She now serves as a creative consultant. ‘‘While collectible design is still a young field, it consistently demonstrates an incredible level of creative expression, freedom and innovation,’’ said Goebl, who speaks five languages. ‘‘I am convinced that design plays a hugely important role within the contemporary cultural landscape and am eager to contribute to the next phase of growth for the fair.’’ — AUDRA D.S.

Our top pick, however, is PG-rated: A minimalist yet lush wall sculpture by Doug Aitken spells ‘‘SEX’’ in transparent plastic letters. Inside them is an assemblage of plants, drooping moss and driftwood. See the work at Regen Projects, C-14, in the Convention Center. (We’ll see more of Aitken, who’s scheduled to project a Miami version of his famous Sleepwalkers video on the walls of the new Miami Art Museum when it opens.) • Bar is one of those works you won’t soon forget — an installation by Brazilian artist Laura Lima set up like a beer joint, only instead of patrons, it has a mechanism inside the tables that drains the beer from the glasses. A ‘‘real’’ waiter hired for the occasion refills them. Stacks of newspapers, geometric shapes in primary colors and a mound of a white powdery substance occupy the seats. See the work at the Rio de Janeirobased gallery A Gentil Carioca, Art Nova N-27. • The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space dazzles again with exceptional international art, but we liked best Clockwork for Oracles, the wall installation Swissborn Ugo Rondinone constructed of colorful mirrors placed against whitewashed pages of The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald. The newspapers and their headlines are a vital part of the sitespecific work. When it was shown in Boston, the artist used The Boston Globe. • If you’re in Wynwood or the Design District, you’ll likely be asked this question: Have you seen the horse-drawn Hummer? The tricked-out H2-turned-stagecoach that references the Hoover Cart of the Great Depression, is a mega statement on our car culture by Brooklyn artist Jeremy Dean. Butch and Cassidy, Belgian draft horses, pull the former eight milesper-gallon Hummer, which has been cut in half, its engine removed. Dean is riding the work — The Future is Here — from event to event. Better than a Yellow Cab. • Wartime art was a trend at Pulse, the satellite fair at the Ice Palace, 1400 N.

This year, the novelty is five upholstered trash dumpsters provided by General Hauling Service. Artists Cat Dove, Regina Jestrow, Sleeper, Gustavo, Tupper and Ines Lorin were selected to perk up the bins. See their work in Wynwood: at the Bakehouse Art Complex, 32nd Street and Fifth Avenue; at Northwest First Place between 22nd and 23rd streets in front of Artseen, Praxis Gallery and Altman/Ortega Galler, and in the gallery area along 23rd Street and Second Avenue. The project was curated by Christopher Miro, Arlys Raymond, Adal Delgado and Maria Amores. Its post-Basel destination will be 6th Street Container Alternative space in Little Havana. Miami Herald staff writers Jane Wooldridge and Audra D.S. Burch, and freelance contributor Lydia Martin contributed to this report. SALES STILL STRONG The sales continue. Friday, Galerie Gmurzynska (at Art Basel Miami Beach in the convention center) reported the sale of a second Yves Klein work, IKB 93, blue pigment and synthetic resin on a linen-laid panel from 1961. No details on the final sales price, but the asking price was $4.5 million. At Art Miami, Mark Borghi Fine Art sold a Philip Guston work priced at more than $700,000. Evelyn Amis Fine Art sold a Robert Motherwell for $560,000 and a Frank Stella for $275,000. And at Pulse Miami, the Mark Moore Gallery sold a monumental $40,000 painting by Allison Schulnik — along with almost everything else, including a $40,000 portrait of Bianca Jagger by Israeli photorealist Yigal Ozeri. — JANE WOOLDRIDGE MOCA SYMPOSIUM The Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami will host a three-day symposium in May to examine the boom of independent artistic activity in Latin America, MOCA associate curator Ruba Katrib announced Friday night. Flanked by a distinguished collection of contemporary Latin American art at the Williams Island home of Amy Dean and Alan Kluger, Katrib said that New Methods/Nuevo Métodos will provide a meeting place for artist-run organizations in the region. — FABIOLA SANTIAGO HAITI-THEMED PREVIEW On Friday, the Little Haiti Cultural Center and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance hosted a glimpse of the dreamlike world of Makandal, an opera-in-the-making inspired by the story of the 18th century leader of a Haitian slave revolt and of desperate immigrants from Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. ‘‘Makandal is about the intersection between the world of the Gods, the world of humanity and the world in between,’’ said Patricia Cruz, director of New York’s Harlem Stage, which is producing the opera. ‘‘And what better place to understand that than from Haiti.’’ Inside the Cultural Center’s theater, images by Miami-based Haitian painter Edouard Duval Carrié shimmered and shifted on several scrims, while creator and librettist Carl Hancock Rux and incandescent actress/dancer/singer Okwui Okpokwasili spoke of Haitians laboring in Dominican sugar plantations and the spirits of an ocean that has swallowed slaves and fleeing migrants. Makandal, which will premiere at the Harlem Stage in 2012, was originally co-commissioned by the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts with the goal of presenting it in Miami. Whether it will return in completed form is uncertain. — JORDAN LEVIN PEEK AT MAM’S FUTURE Hula hoops and art — an unconventional pairing of the silly and the serious — were the life of Miami Art Museum’s ‘‘Party on the Plaza’’ at the Cultural Center in downtown Miami Thursday night. MAM patrons and guests were treated to drinks, DJ music, a documentary called The Hooping Life projected onto a wall and performances by the Hoola Monsters, a troupe that twirls toy hoops around waists, limbs and necks. Thom Collins, appointed MAM director in July, said the week surrounding Art Basel Miami Beach gave him a new perspective on the significance — and potential — of art in Miami. ‘‘I had a sense of how much Miami Basel had contributed to the cultural life of the city,’’ Collins said. ‘‘But I really didn’t know the extent. It’s really gratifying to be a part of it.’’ Inside MAM, exhibitions by seminal American artists Susan Rothenberg and Robert Rauschenberg gave a glimpse of how art will be shown inside the museum’s future home. — DANIEL CHANG How much for that art? This sculpture of a tree by artist Bharti Kher, ‘Solarum Series I,’ is made of resin and metal and has mythical creatures in place of flower petals.

BY ROBYN DIXON Los Angeles Times JOHANNESBURG — Ivory Coast’s highest electoral authority Friday overturned presidential election results that gave former Prime Minister Alass a n e Ouatta r a a victory over President Laur e n t Gbagbo, a move that c o u l d spark vioGBAGBO lence in the troubled West African country. The Constitutional Council declared Gbagbo the winner in the runoff held Sunday after annulling results in several districts in Ouattara’s northern strongholds. Paul Yao N’Dre, who heads the council and is an ally of the president, said Friday that Gbagbo had won 51 percent of the vote to Ouattara’s 49 percent. A day earlier, the country’s election commission had declared Ouattara the winner with 54 percent of the vote compared with Gbagbo’s 46 percent. However, the council has the power to rule on election disputes. Opposition members said the country would be at risk of civil war if Gbagbo, who has been president for a decade, tried to cling to power. ‘‘By doing that they will cement the division of the country,’’ opposition aide Jeannot Aboussou said before Ouattara’s victory was quashed. ‘‘If Yao N’Dre does it he will be to blame for the next war in Ivory Coast.’’ The opposition camp accused Gbagbo of refusing to accept defeat and hand over power after he cried foul when results gave Ouattara a strong showing in the north. U.N. representatives said this week that the election was sound overall, and European Union observers said that there were a few irregularities but not enough to affect the result. The move to overturn the election commission’s results could lead to U.N. Security Council sanctions. The United States’ ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, said Thursday that the council would take appropriate action if either party failed to accept the election results.

Massive fire shows no signs of waning ■ As a forest fire continues to burn fiercely in Israel, rescue workers and firefighters from around the world have lent a hand. BY SHEERA FRENKEL McClatchy News Service HAIFA, Israel — Help streamed in from across the world Friday to aid Israel battle a forest fire that has already killed at least 42 people and ranks among the nation’s worst natural disasters. Firefighters and equipment from the U.S. are expected to arrive Saturday, joining teams from 16 countries that have already sent airplanes, helicopters, supplies and firefighters to battle the blaze, which began Thursday and spread so quickly that it overtook a bus carrying prison guards, killing dozens in a flash of flame. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the international help ‘‘an unprecedented response to our request’’ and thanked the international community for standing ‘‘shoulder to shoulder’’ with Israel. The fire burned fiercely Friday, sending up smoke that could be seen throughout northern Israel. Many stopped their MOSHE MILNER/GETTY IMAGES GRATEFUL: Leader Benjamin Netanyahu thanks Turkish pilots for their firefighting help. cars along the coastal highway to watch as clouds of gray smoke hung ominously over the city of Haifa. Yael Branovsky, a 24year-old Haifa resident, said that her parents had fled their home voluntarily, but that many others had to be dragged out. ‘‘A lot of us stayed here during the wars with Lebanon and through everything else. Now we have to abandon our homes because of a fire? It’s hard to accept,’’ she said. ‘‘Still, we don’t want to see any more tragedies.’’ As she spoke, a firefighting plane with a Greek flag flew overhead. A small group of people gathered near the highway cheered and yelled ‘‘Go, go, Zeus!’’ at the aircraft. Many Israelis said they’re still shocked by the bus tragedy, which happened during the first hours of the inferno. According to rescue workers, the bus, carrying trainee prison guards to help evacuate a low-security jail, was caught by flames traveling 100 mph down a hillside. None of them could escape. The fire, ignited by unseasonably high temperatures, strong winds and dry conditions left by the worst drought in Israeli history, has scorched more than 7,000 acres and shows no signs of slackening.

Asked what she expected from Monday’s meeting in Geneva between Iran and officials from six countries trying to contain Iran’s nuclear program, Clinton said: ‘‘That’s in the hands of the Iranians.’’ Stressing that Iran is legally entitled to the peaceful use of nuclear energy under international safeguards, she expressed hope that the talks would lead to a breakthrough. On Friday, Clinton gave an unusually clear signal that the Obama administration accepts that Iran could eventually be permitted to enrich uranium on its own — a practice now opposed by the West because of suspicions that Iran will secretly use the material to build a bomb. ‘‘We’ve told them that they are entitled to the peaceful use of civil nuclear energy, but they haven’t yet restored the confidence of the international community to the extent where the international community would feel comfortable allowing them to enrich,’’ Clinton told the BBC. ‘‘They can enrich uranium at some future date once they have demonstrated that they can do so in a responsible manner.’’ Donate Your Car • We accept all vehicles running or not • We also accept Boats and RV’s • Free vehicle pick-up • Tax Deductible CALL 1-877-918-WISH (9474) (7 days a week) www.WheelsForWishes.org BEIRUT — Thousands of Lebanese Muslims have held special services to pray for rain as the country endures a severe dry spell. The prayers were held Friday in dozens of mosques across Lebanon, which is witnessing one of its worst droughts in decades. At the towering Mohammed Al-Amin Mosque in downtown Beirut, Grand Mufti Mohammed Rashid Kabbani, the spiritual leader of Lebanon’s Sunni Muslims, led the prayers attended by hundreds of people. The rainy season usually begins in Lebanon in November, but there has been almost no rain this year. The drought has damaged the country’s agriculture and contributed to forest fires. • FRANCE POLICE CLOSE RING OF PICKPOCKETS WSVN - CHANNEL 7 Saturday, Dec. 4th at 1 pm 21st Century Medicine on Ch. 7 MADRID — Spain’s deputy prime minister said the nation’s military was ordered on Friday to take control of the nation’s airspace after a massive sickout by air traffic controllers closed down airports and created travel chaos. The sickout forced the country’s air traffic authority to close eight airports, including the major European hub in Madrid, on the eve of a major national holiday, stranding 200,000 travelers. The controllers left their posts amid a lengthy dispute over working conditions and just hours after the administration of Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero approved an austerity measure to partially privatize airports. • LEBANON MUSLIMS HOLD PRAYERS FOR RAIN Clinton: Iran must prove itself Understanding First Class Dental Care THE MIAMI HERALD From Miami Herald Wire Services IRAN From the author of: YELLOW WORLD BRIEFS ISRAEL Riots feared after election reversal ■ A change in election |HA1A_201204Y8~ Of the faces you pass every day, how many belong to people who are hungry?

Police in France and Italy have arrested the alleged organizers of the ring of girls — children and teenagers — who were ordered to pick pockets and snatch purses in the Paris subway and other tourist spots. Christian Flaesch, director of judicial police in Paris, described the operation as ‘‘medieval.’’ The ring is believed to have brought in nearly $5.3 million, officials said, with one girl stealing $133,700, in a single day. In total, 18 people have been taken into custody in the case, and most are expected to face preliminary charges in the coming days.

KNIGHT (1894-1981) JAMES L. KNIGHT (1909-1991) Jabs | EDITORIAL Easy to digest ‘‘President Obama held a ceremony at the White House to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah. In response, Republicans said, ‘It’s even worse than we thought. He’s a Jewish Muslim.’ ’’ – CONAN O’BRIEN OUR OPINION: Congress should OK food-safety act without delay hether red state or blue, you have to eat. W It’s an obvious truth that seems to have propelled one of the few pieces of bipartisan legislation through both houses of this Congress: the Food Safety Modernization Act. Coming after tainted foods have sickened thousands of Americans in recent years, the bill gives the Food and Drug Administration far more muscle to prevent bad foods from reaching our supermarkets and restaurants, rather than just react once something goes terribly wrong. It puts ‘‘food’’ back where it belongs: on the front burner of the FDA, which has focused more closely on the ‘‘drug’’ part of its mission to protect our health and well-being. The bill would: • Increase the number of food-processing plant inspections. • Give the FDA more control over imported food, increasing inspections of foreign processing plants and letting the agency set standards for how fruits and vegetables are grown abroad. • Give the FDA the authority to demand immediate food recalls. • Make companies develop plans for manufacturing food safely and making them accountable for carrying out those plans. The Senate passed this major food-safety overhaul by a 73-25 vote. That’s a healthy — and refreshingly bipartisan — majority of lawmakers addressing the preventable damage done by tainted peanut butter, spinach and eggs. Now it’s time to reconcile the Senate bill with that of the House, which passed a similar legislation last year. But time is running out for any protracted haggling during this lameduck session. Democratic leaders said that they might just pass the Senate version to speed up approval. This would be the most expedient route to take at this point. Is the bill perfect? Some small-farm advocates and organic food producers say that they’ll be buried under the paperwork requirements; the legislation doesn’t consolidate overlapping — and duplicative — duties of the more than 10 federal agencies responsible for food safety; and the House version provides more money for inspections and fewer exemptions from the rules. Save the modification battles for later. The Senate’s bill is a very good start toward keeping the food we eat as something that sustains, rather than sickens, us. VERBATIM Wage theft hurts whole community Excerpts from the report, Wage Theft in Florida: A Real Problem with Real Solutions, which focuses on Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties and was prepared by the Research Institute on Social and Economic Policy at Florida International University: he negative effects of illegally shortT changing workers’ wages ripple across communities and the economy. Families suffer when earnings are too low to meet basic needs. Local businesses and economies are denied vital stimulus that would flow from the additional spending of workers had they been paid all they had earned. Honest businesses are undermined by unscrupulous competitors who practice wage theft. And governments at all levels take a hit, because they are denied taxes generated by higher earnings and because many working families must resort to public programs to meet basic needs when wages fall short. Community-based organizations and the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) can be successful at aiding workers in recovering wages, but will not be able to resolve all cases due to the sheer volume of cases. In addition, the WHD has limited jurisdiction and does not cover all workers. Because much of Florida’s workforce falls outside of the WHD’s jurisdiction, other enforcement mechanisms such as MiamiDade’s Wage Theft Ordinance, which does cover all workers, are needed to ensure that workers, communities, and local governments will not miss out. The additional effect of local governments creating these mechanisms is that the message to unscrupulous employers becomes clear — wage theft will not be tolerated. The task force believes that public policy, as implemented by Florida’s state and local governments, has a fundamental responsibility to protect Florida’s workers against workplace violations. Labor’s WHD cannot be the sole enforcement mechanism in Florida because of its limited jurisdiction. Other county agencies need to create local wagetheft ordinances like Miami-Dade’s. The Florida attorney general may bring an enforcement action to enforce the state minimum wage; however, to our knowledge, this has never been done. In an effort to protect Florida’s workforce from labor violations, the attorney general must enforce Florida’s labor laws and be allotted the resources to do so. Florida must find the political will to protect workers and honest employers from wage theft, a growing illegal practice with negative implications for economic health and growth. ‘‘WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should resign for ordering American diplomats to spy on their foreign counterparts. Thanks, creepy Australian guy who’s wanted for rape in Sweden, we’ll make a note of that.’’ – JIMMY KIMMEL CLEMENT/NATIONAL POST/CANADA THE READERS’ FORUM Are these salmon safe for humans to eat? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced that it may approve the long-shelved AquAdvantage transgenic Atlantic salmon as the first genetically engineered (GE) animal intended for human consumption. The human-health impacts of eating GE fish are completely unknown. There is substantial concern that the routine use of antibiotics to control diseases often found in farmed fish may already be affecting human health. Studies have shown that transgenic fish may be susceptible to more diseases than fish currently grown in aquaculture facilities. Consequently GE fish may receive even more antibiotics. Already, farmed salmon receive more antibiotics by weight than any other livestock animal. GE salmon also pose serious risks to our marine environment and wild populations of salmon, and the men and women who depend upon them for their livelihoods. Any approval of GE salmon would represent a serious threat to the survival of native salmon populations, many of which have Where 42 beats 58 trator at Miami international? Neither the men nor the women on the County Commission seem to be able to deal with women who are obviously smarter than they are. Because of the arcane rules of the Senate, it seems that 42 now beats 58. Forty-two Republican senators have sent a letter to Harry Reid indicating they will not allow any legislation to come to the floor until they are allowed a vote on the Bush tax cuts. They claim that by not extending these cuts to the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans, job creation is in real danger. This policy has been in effect for 10 years, and under George Bush’s presidency we actually had the slowest job growth in more than 50 years. It is a failed policy. In the meantime, important legislation including, but not limited to, extended unemployment benefits for more than two million people, the Dream Act and the passing of the New Start Treaty just sits on the sidelines. Have they no shame? - BETH A. RUBIN, Miami A loss at Jackson Jackson Memorial Hospital is losing one of its probably greatest, hardworking CEOs in the 90year history of the hospital. Dr. Eneida Roldan, a very educated, caring woman is leaving an institution she began heading 18 months ago when it was on the verge of bankruptcy, and little by little she has been improving services to the poor Miami-Dade County community. And now, thanks, in part, to Miami-Dade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez, she will be leaving the great job she started. Gimenez will be remembered by voters in our next election. - CELESTINO RIONDA, Doral The resignation of the head of Jackson Hospital should be a warning to all smart, experienced, professional women not to apply for any top jobs in Miami-Dade County. Remember what happened to the top adminis- - BARBARA PACE, Hollywood - MICHAEL SHETER, Miami Miami Beach Reject ‘Don’t ask’ Excerpts from Jeff St. John on gigaom.com. Homes of the future are probably going to have their fair share of smart appliances, smart thermostats and energy-management dashboards with the General Electric label on them. But for now, utilities are the target customers of GE’s push into the energy-smart home. That’s the news from David McCalpin, general manager of GE’s newly launched Home Energy Management (HEM) business. The new business unit encompasses GE’s line of Brillion brand smart appliances and smart thermostats, its Nucleus energy management platform, and products yet to come, all meant to tie into GE’s smart meters as a gateway to the smart grid. Back in July, McCalpin told us that four U.S. utilities – Florida Power & Light, Reliant Energy, the Vineyard Energy Project in Martha’s Vineyard and AEP Columbus – were testing its product suite, along with previous tester Louisville Gas & Electric. GE is also working on a pilot project in Masdar City, and expects to announce a pilot with an unnamed utility in a country in Asia in the coming months, McCalpin said Tuesday. McCalpin also said in July that GE expected to start selling its Nucleus device to consumers in 2011. But on Tuesday, he said GE’s mass market home energy launch will be limited to some ‘‘retail tests’’ in the second half of next year. ‘‘The consumer will be the end market over time,’’ he said, but, ‘‘until there’s enough critical mass to put products in a retail opening, we’ve decided to restrict the products to the utility channel.’’ That makes sense, given the nature of the market, which doesn’t really exist beyond rare and expensive custom systems and utility pilot projects. GE’s Nucleus platform is expected to sell at between $149 to $199, but research indicates that most homeowners aren’t willing to pay more than $50 to $100 for home energy management technology. Indeed, the Nucleus price is much lower than the $1,500 or so that an earlier iteration of GE’s home energy-management platform was expected to cost. Besides that, energy-smart appliances need smart meters or some other gateway to the smart grid to realize their full cost-saving potential. Pike Research predicts that the smart appliance market won’t really take off until the second half of the decade, as ‘‘white goods’’ manufacturers wait for smart grid standards to emerge and an ecosystem of utility smart infrastructure to be put in place. That’s important, since utilities have a lot to gain from ‘‘smart’’ homes, rather than simply energy efficient homes, McCalpin noted. Utilities are keen to shift household power use from peak demand times such as late afternoons to off-peak nighttime hours, for example – something that only smart devices, hooked up to old-school load control or next-generation smart grid systems, can deliver. McCalpin cited as one example GE’s GeoSpring hybrid hot water heaters, advertised as nearly two-thirds more energy efficient than old-school heaters. - PAUL PENN, Miami ‘‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’’ is not based on true integrity for our service men and women. We are called to a higher standard — to be honest and to have integrity. These are values that must not be compromised. Let’s stand together, please, to get ‘‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’’ repealed. - DON MACCULLOUGH, North Blogosphere already suffered severe declines related to salmon farms and other man-made impacts. Atlantic salmon are already on the Endangered Species List. Allowing GE fish into our waters and onto our plates without knowing the full ramifications is irresponsible. This animal should not be approved for human consumption until and unless further study, including a full environmental impact statement, indicates that they are safe for consumers, native salmon populations and the environment. games and not on when fans arrive and depart the games. Fact is, if the game is any good all, what matters are the final few minutes of the last quarter. Instead of management calling out fans for arriving fashionably late, the fans should call out management for an expensive product that has priced out many potential fans. Management says, ‘‘Fan up,’’ and I say ‘‘Management down.’’ How about free parking for arriving before the start of the game? I wish the Heat well this season. The current problem with pro sports is that the regular guy has been priced out.

George W. Bush, unfortunately, barely skims his. Yes, his memoir Decision Points, covers a great deal of ground, and for the intended purposes. The post-presidential retelling of events is always an effort to goad a legacy forward. So, as is to be expected, Bush’s recently released book SANCHEZ is being dissected by historians, politicos and pundits alike. But Bush’s allure for both detractors and fans has long been his golly-gee, easy-going demeanor. He’s the guy you’d choose to have a beer with, as the conventional wisdom once had it, rather than his more-cerebral political foes. So why not use that gift for a greater good? Give us a lesson worth engaging. I wish President Bush would tell us about the drinking. The full story, not the cursory, told-in-three-pages bulletpoint version offered in Decision Points. Really engage us with how he traversed the route that has tripped up so many others. Explain the sneaky way alcohol has for morphing from social fun with pals to a daily habit of near ravenous cravings. Obviously, we’re all curious about what Bush has to say about the nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, as well as his reflections on hanging chads, water-boarding, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan and the financial bailouts. Indeed, few of us can fathom what it must have been like when Bush’s chief of staff whispered into his ear, ‘‘A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack.’’ But his struggle with alcohol — clearly central to Bush’s life — gets short shrift. He opens his book with it. ‘‘Quitting drinking was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made,’’ Bush writes. ‘‘Without it, none of the others that follow in this book would have been possible.’’ Bush lets readers know his faith in God, and his love for Laura Bush and his twin daughters loomed large in the decision to stop. He alludes to an aptitude for addiction and of replacing the craving for alcohol with running and chocolate. But then . . . period, new paragraph. To learn more you have to combine husband’s and wife’s recent autobiographies. Laura Bush, in her memoir, Spoken from the Heart, is far more candid, descriptive and therefore riveting. Maybe it is her librarian’s knowledge of the power of words. She gives context by recounting dry Texas counties and setups for bottles of booze kept in lockers at country clubs. And, equally important to addiction, a culture where ‘‘you might talk about the wind and the weather, but troubles you swallowed deep down inside.’’ She talks of a date with a boy who drank too much and being scared as he drove her home while drunk. She writes of being the wife to the man who is drunk at a party. And perhaps most importantly, she tells of the lineage of drinking. Laura Bush’s father was a drinker. ‘‘Years after George quit, as Mother and I sat talking one quiet afternoon, she turned and said that, unlike me, she had never thought to ask Daddy to stop drinking.’’ The passage is set apart by extra lines for emphasis. Laura Bush knows it is pivotal. She played a role in stopping the cycle of alcohol in her family. Daughters of drinkers are almost programmed to fall in love with drinkers. Too many never hear their mother say those words. Here’s a pitch for an intrepid publishing agent. How about a dual autobiography? A book co-authored by Laura and George W. Bush. Draw from the literary skills of Laura and her ability to tease introspection out of George. If they are ready to reveal more, and I suspect they might be, have them pen a book that is less a memoir of the presidential years. Give us more of the young couple they once were, newly married in Texas. Next time, address drinking for what it is — a societal problem that is as acute today as it was in 1986, the year George W. Bush took his last drink. ©2010 The Kansas City Star POLITICS It’s all hollow rhetoric now BY JOE CARDONA [email protected] eldom, if ever, will you hear a poliS tician speak about the ‘‘not so pleasant’’ realities that plague our communities. In spite of the sometimes overwhelmingly obvious facts, politicians choose to stay the course and echo their rote ‘‘talking points’’ rather than break with the safety net that the traditional American political spiel provides — the formulaic, canned answer. The simple solution to difficult polemics. CARDONA Touting his new memoir, former President George W. Bush made a recent appearance at the Miami International Book Fair and answered questions with the same nonsensical, folksy responses that got him elected twice. His rhetoric was vague, lacked insight if not intellect, and yet his homespun quips and his Gomer Pyle delivery seemed to take the audience on a rose-colored, nostalgic journey to an America that I’m not sure ever really existed — unless of course you were a white, rich, evangelical male. Astonishingly enough, the crowd, as far as I could see over the C-Span telecast (I didn’t have the stomach to attend and wallow in the phony patriotic dribble) was significantly peppered with Cuban Americans and other minorities who not only did not live the provincial, narrow, ‘‘wholesome’’ America President Bush continuously referenced, but I suspect were mostly residents of Miami, a city that boldly challenges the boundaries and definitions of what it is to be American today. Miami stands the old paradigm of the American dream on its head and forces one, or dare I say, should force one, to reevaluate what ‘‘truth, justice and the American way’’ really mean. Miami’s demographic make-up is chock full of the remnants of painfully unsuccessful American foreign policy. Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, Venezuela are all glaring examples of American diplomatic snafus. In the early to mid part of last century Miami was a place where American middle-class stiffs used to come to lay their overworked souls by the warm seashore and retire to a life of shuffleboard, lounge crooners and airboat rides in the Everglades. Over the last 50 years, ‘‘the Magic City’’ became the refuge for the cast-off pawns of the United States’ failed crusades versus the ‘‘evil empire’’ during the Cold War. And yet there was the former president tantalizing the crowd with whimsical anecdotes about Vladimir Putin’s dog. You would have thought someone would have had the stones to raise their hand and press him on some more-pertinent issues like why we really invaded Iraq after 9/11. Or maybe instead of attentively listening to his less than humble and downright insulting description of how ‘‘courageous’’ he had been for choosing to return to the White House on that horrid day, someone could have chosen to demand a sincere if not apologetic reflection of the erred invasion that produced so many needless deaths. More than ever, in my four decades of life, has America ever been so torn. We live alternate realities. New Ameri- cans have brought new needs, hopes and aspirations to the forefront, and the crippling, economic depression has changed the priorities and wants of most established Americans. And yet most of our elected officials continue to spew out ideals that went out with wood-paneled station wagons and hoola hoops. The face of America has changed. The necessities of the American middle class (or what’s left of it) have changed, but you wouldn’t know it from gauging the archaic discourse put forth by our leaders. The crux of America’s political debate and ideology today should focus more on increasing the probabilities for citizens to attain a better life rather than drone on about the ever-dwindling possibilities. What good is it for a poor American to know that the possibility of being accepted at an Ivy League university exists when the probabilities of him/her getting there are slim to none given the fastgrowing disparity of our society? The approach of our local elected officials and party heads is as perplexing as the national trend, with the exception of Norman Braman’s boisterous challenge of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez’s bumbling mismanagement and arrogant disregard for this county’s taxpayers. Most elected officials in South Florida seem to have a sun pass to explain their way past the thorny situations residents face. The most discouraging part of the problem is that the majority of voters continue to be lulled and comforted by the flowery, disconnected dialogue, and in many cases cast votes of denial that go against their own interests and do not remotely reflect their realities. the United States. Since then we, as a nation, have passed two major landmarks in this area. First, in 2008, President George W. Bush signed into law the Mental Health Parity Act and in January 2010 President Obama issued an Executive Order to implement the mandates of the Mental Health Parity Act, which provide coverage for mental health treatment equal to that for other health conditions in most health insurance plans. Those of us in the health professions continue working to advance the recommendations put forth in that report, including reducing stigma related to mental health. Mental health is a pertinent issue for sports. The evidence of long-term SATCHER effects of head injuries in sports — depression, early dementia and Alzheimer’s disease — has been well documented. We are learning more and more about mental illness among professional athletes. Throughout the past several months, increased attention has been given to the issue of concussions sustained by athletes in all levels of sports participation and the long-term mental health effects of repeated head trauma. I applaud the NFL and National Federation of State High School Associations for appreciating the seriousness of these issues. New York Times columnist Alan Schwarz has raised awareness of the risks of head injuries to NFL players, and of a new poster, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that is now required to be placed in NFL locker rooms. Schwarz described the posters as ‘‘blatantly alerting players to the long-term effects of concussions, using words like depression and early onset dementia.’’ The National Federation of State High School Associations released new concussion rules in August and that same week a study published in the Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology examined the link between head and brain injuries and dementia and cognitive decline in NFL players who develop symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) later in life. Recently the NFL adopted a controversial new policy that subjects players to suspension for violent hits to the head onfield. Proactive actions such as these speak clearly to the importance of the immediate and long-term mental health outcomes of head injury in sports at all levels, and I applaud the NFL and NFHS for appreciating the seriousness of these issues. The NCAA says about 1.8 percent of college football players and a mere 0.8 percent of high school football players will ever play football professionally. Young people participate in recreational and competitive sports for many reasons including physical activity, the feeling of belonging to a team, and to secure their ability to pay for their college education. Yet with youth comes the feeling of invincibility. High school, college and young professional athletes often do not consider the possibility of injury or the long-term effects of repeated head trauma later in life, yet several times already this season we have seen players removed from the field after sustaining concussions. The Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine has teamed up with the NFL and NFL Alumni Association to provide a series of free town-hall style forums across the country entitled NFL Community Huddle: Taking a Goal Line Stand for Your Mind & Body, which will be coming to the University of Miami on Monday at 7 p.m. These forums, which are open to the public, aim to educate, motivate and mobilize communities to address issues such as dementia, depression, financial and relationship stress, and drug and alcohol abuse, among others. Our hope is that communities in Miami and elsewhere will create a ‘‘game plan’’ for reducing mental health stigma while influencing supportive measures to address mental disorders and prevent traumatic brain injury across all sports. Dr. David Satcher, Director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine, was the 16th U.S. Surgeon General.

BY PATRICIA MAZZEI [email protected] While plunging home values and a decision not to raise property taxes offer many Miami residents a break on their tax bill this year, tucked in the budget are a host of rate and fee hikes that city leaders hope will make up for those missing dollars. Miami residents will now have to pay $250 fines after a third fire alarm. Retrieving a towed car will cost $134. And to get fingerprinted at the city’s police department, they will have to fork over $10. The moves are an attempt — along with salary and pension cuts — to fill the city’s $105 million budget hole, a vacuum caused in part by last year’s troubled stock market and a 2007 worker-friendly union contract that pushed many salaries sky high. The city expects the fees, from fire inspections to vehicle impoundment to emergency medical services, to raise $18 million. Most of the new rates went into effect on Oct. 1, the first day of the new budget year. Of course, the city’s estimates are just that — educated guesses on how much money it expects to make off all the new revenue streams, including $8 million in fines from new red-light cameras at key Miami intersections. The impact of some of the hikes is straightforward: Home- LARGER THAN LIFE IN PERSON owners will pay an additional $15 a year for waste hauling, for example, raising their yearly garbage pickup rate to $380. Businesses will have to pay $500 for each slot-like coin-operated video game machine in their establishments. So far, city officials say the only complaints have come from parents whose children swim in Miami’s public pools, which now have hiked fees for kids to enroll in the city’s swim team. • TURN TO FEES, 2B - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - City hopes hiked fees will save budget Mayor Tomás Regalado and other city officials have defended the fee hikes as a way to keep the financially strapped city afloat without raising Miami’s property tax rate. WATSON ISLAND MIAMI GLADES: The winning entry came from a team from Seoul, South Korea. Ideas dazzle, but remain just dreams ■ In its third year, DawnTown Miami again received dozens of creative designs, this time for a new seaplane terminal at Watson Island. BY CHARLES RABIN AND ANDRES VIGLUCCI [email protected] MARSHA HALPER/MIAMI HERALD STAFF Joel Osteen, accompanied by his wife Victoria, brought his feel-good sermon to Miami for ‘‘A Night of Hope’’ Friday. Thousands packed the AmericanAirlines Arena to hear Osteen’s blend of motivational speaking, worship and gospel-rock. His message, aimed at Christians and non-Christians alike, is beamed worldwide from his Texas church every Sunday. Blend a touch of the Everglades with a rooftop garden of native vegetation over a sleek hangar shaped like airplane wings. Underneath, leave plenty of open space with an airy feel open to the water. And of course, top it off with an unobstructed view of downtown Miami’s skyline. Presto! Miami finally has the sexy, sleek seaplane terminal at Watson Island that industry and city leaders have craved for decades. The dream — the reality is not much has been built on the main link between Miami Beach and the mainland, and nothing is expected any time soon — was envisioned Friday thanks to an architectural competition called DawnTown. It’s the third year of a worldwide competition of dazzling ideas sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Downtown Development Authority. This year’s winning entry was ‘‘Miami Glades,’’ submitted by Trevor Curtis and Sylvia Kim of CA Landscape of Seoul, South Korea. Other entries were offered from Moscow, even Bulgaria. The winners and runners-up were announced at Miami Dade College’s Batten Room in downtown Miami Friday. ‘‘Wonderful designs flowed in from all around the world,’’ said Andrew Frey, credited with creating the DawnTown theme and putting the pieces together. With most of the contestants • TURN TO DAWNTOWN, 2B MARILYN JOY SIEGEL, 1947-2010 Broadway actress turned teacher takes own life ■ As a child actress she appeared in Tony-winning Broadway shows. As an adult, she shared her love of language with young students in Miami-Dade County. BY ELINOR J. BRECHER [email protected] ON BROADWAY: Robert Preston sings with Marilyn on his shoulder in ‘The Music Man.’ For 20 years, Marilyn Siegel was a high school English teacher and creative-writing instructor in the Miami-Dade County school system. Few students knew she’d once been Marilyn Rogers, a singing, dancing child actor who appeared in legendary Broadway musicals, Holly- wood movies, and was all over network television in the 1950s and ’60s. An original cast member of Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music and The Music Man, Marilyn Rogers appeared opposite A-list stars like Zero Mostel, Mary Martin and Robert Preston. The shows won Tony Awards; the original cast albums, on which she sang, won Grammys. ‘‘But I don’t think she ever thought it was going to be her career,’’ said her brother, Dr. Barry Siegel, a Miami physician. • TURN TO SIEGEL, 2B ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HA1B_011204 System MIAE by EMCDONALD MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Time 22:19:50 Date 12/03/10 Story # 0 Story name HA1B_011204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user EMCDONALD B , 1, A1 , Keyword: |HD1B_021204Kj~ 2B SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 FLORIDA LOTTERY RESULTS MIDDAY CASH 3 6-9-6 MIDDAY PLAY 4 5-8-0-9 NIGHT CASH 3 4-9-4 NIGHT PLAY 4 2-2-7-0 MEGA MONEY 2-18-26-34 +8 26-27-28-35-36 SELECTED THURSDAY, DEC. 2 FANTASY 5: 2-14-15-18-35 CORRECT PAYOFF 5 of 5 Rolldown 0 4 of 5 $555 242 3 of 5 $25 7,929 WINNERS SELECTED WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1 FANTASY 5: 2-13-19-32-34 CORRECT |HD1B_021204M¨~ CYAN MAGENTA LOCAL & STATE D1 |HD1B_021204YD~ MiamiHerald.com YELLOW THE MIAMI HERALD MIAMI SELECTED FRIDAY, DEC. 3 FANTASY 5 |HD1B_021204Cq~ BLACK PAYOFF WINNERS 5 of 5 $119,780.59 2 4 of 5 $134 288 3 of 5 $12 8,861 Residents feel pinch of fee hikes • FEES, FROM 1B Joining the team, with practices five days a week, used to only cost an annual $10 registration fee. Now, in addition to the yearly registration, city residents will have to pay $45 a month for two or three practices a week. ‘SACRIFICE’ ‘‘They’re going to offer less and charge more,’’ lamented Veronica De La Cadena, recently watching her 7-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Norori, practice at the pool in Little Havana’s Jose Martí Park. ‘‘Starting January, I won’t be able to afford to bring her five days a week anymore.’’ Added Daniela Gomez, whose 6-year-old son, Javier, is also a swimmer: ‘‘My son loves it. We have to sacrifice.’’ To help families cover the new charges, Miami’s parks and recreation department has offered scholarships for low-income families. There’s also a reduced rate for families enrolling more than one child on the swim team. The alternative to the fee hikes — closing some pools during the winter months — would have been worse, Mayor Tomás Regalado said. ‘‘A lot of parents were grateful’’ that the pools remained open. In other instances, breaking down exactly how much each fee has increased is much more difficult because it is based on percentages. Dockage rates at Miami’s city-owned marinas, for example, were increased by an average of 4 percent in September. Fees for building permits were changed from flat rates to percentages based on the size and scope of projects.

MIAMI LOOP: Designers from Basel came up with a circular structure that could be partially pushed into the bay. Designs come from the clouds • DAWNTOWN, FROM 1B thousands of miles away, Friday’s audience was entertained with a host of videos, many quite funny. A shaggy-haired fellow in Moscow stood before pictures of a giant clam-like structure that opened and closed as planes entered and exited. Gerd Wetzel and Marty Plock of Basel, Switzerland — coincidence as this week’s art events abound — finished in third place with plan called ‘‘Miami Loop.’’ The structure looked like a giant circular earring with an off-kilter doughnut hole in the mid- dle, that could be pushed partially into the bay. Locally, the team from NC-Office of Miami pieced together ‘‘Large Roof,’’ which from above looked much like crinkled paper, but inside offered a cavernous, castle-like feel. The video and project pieced together by Florida International University professor Nik Nedev, his brother Peter Nedev, Elizabeth Cardona, Cristina Canton and Jorge San Martin was the funniest, as they filmed what looked like someone eyeing the structure from inside an airplane made of cardboard with a cut-out win- dow as it flew to Watson Island. The goal of the architectural competition is to solicit dazzling ideas to spiff up downtown Miami’s worn public infrastructure, which has failed to keep pace with the district’s burgeoning revival. Last year’s winning entry, from Australia, proposed putting a shell-like ‘‘diaphragm’’ over the long-shuttered Bicentennial Park Metromover tracks, and setting it aglow. The previous year, the whimsical winner was a scheme to cover the park’s drab sewage pump station, which fronts Biscayne Boulevard, with a giant, writhing and very orange anemone-like creature. Neither scheme has been realized. But the competition’s sponsors have met with city and Miami-Dade County officials, hoping they can take some elements — or, at least, inspiration — from the conceptual plans as they transform Bicentennial Park into the longplanned Museum Park. The contest, the brainchild of Frey, a Miami lawyer and former urban planner, has drawn scores of entries from around the world since its inception. This year, DawnTown received more than 100 submissions. The three winners — selected by a panel of local experts — receive cash prizes, with first place getting $8,000. Second place and $4,000 went to a plan called ‘‘Amphibian,’’ composed by a group from New York City. The seaport would be made of four rectangular tilted prisms on various angles that touched the water and reached toward the sky. ‘‘Miami Loop’’ won its creators $2,000.

She felt she wanted to pursue her education and a teaching career.’’ Born Oct. 4, 1947, in Brooklyn, Marilyn Joy Siegel died Oct. 13 in Miami. She was 63, and according to her brother, took her own life. Barry Siegel said that when he and his sister were kids in Brooklyn, their mother took them to script readings ‘‘as an activity,’’ along with piano and dance lessons. ‘‘There were always other kids there who were in the business,’’ he recalled. ‘‘One of the mothers said to her she should take Marilyn for commercials, and before you knew it, she was a hot item. . . She had a great voice.’’ She became Rogers after composer Richard Rodgers told her that Siegel was ‘‘too Jewish,’’ Barry Siegel said. (Rodgers was also Jewish). Richard Rodgers wrote the music for The Sound of Music, which opened on Broadway in 1959. Marilyn — who had long, dark pigtails and blue eyes — and was cast as Brigitta von Trapp. Mary Martin starred as Maria; Theodore Bikel as Capt. von Trapp. By then, Rogers was already a Broadway veteran, having appeared as Judy in Hide and Seek, with Basil Rathbone and Geraldine Fitzgerald. It closed after a week in 1957. That year, Siegel landed the role of Amaryllis, the little girl who took piano lessons from Marian ‘‘the librarian’’ Paroo — Barbara Cook — love interest of the scheming band leader Harold Hill — Robert Preston — in The Music Man. It ran for 1,375 performances. In 1964, Siegel was cast as Shprintze, the fourth of Tevye the dairyman’s six daughters in Fiddler, starring Mostel. Her films included Ladybug, Ladybug, and Up the Down Staircase. ‘‘She had some bad breaks too,’’ said her mother, Dorothy Siegel of Miami. Marilyn successfully auditioned for the 1961 drama The Children’s Hour, with Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine and James Garner, but her mother said she couldn’t get out of her Sound of Music contract. ‘‘She loved [acting] very much,’’ Dorothy Siegel said. She attended a professional childrens’ school in Manhattan, and worked with a private coach, and an agent. MAKING MUSIC: Marilyn (with pigtails) sang with Mary Martin in ‘The Sound of Music.’ ‘‘It was just so natural for her,’’ her mother said. On television, Siegel appeared on The Jimmy Stewart Show, The Doctors, Route 66, Naked City, East Side/West Side, Look Up and Live, Kraft Theater, the Ed Sullivan Show, The U.S. Steel Hour, What’s My Line?, The Kaiser Aluminum Hour, Goodyear Playhouse, I Remember Mama, Big Story, Omnibus and Studio One. ‘‘She often went up against Patty Duke’’ in auditions, Barry Siegel said. ‘‘They knew each other very well.’’ But her mother advised her to develop another career, just in case show business didn’t work out. ‘‘I told her, ‘Don’t listen to me; speak with the kids’ — that’s what they called the singers and dancers on Broadway — and they told her they were sorry they didn’t have didn’t have something to fall back on,’’ Dorothy Siegel said. After graduating from Brooklyn College, Siegel began teaching, then moved with her parents, Dorothy and the late Seymour Siegel, to South Florida in 1974. After working several years in private schools, she joined Miami-Dade in 1978 as an adult education English teacher, and Florida International Univer- sity as a visiting professor in the Intensive English program for foreign students, from 1979-1985. She taught creative writing and 10th-grade English at South Miami Senior High from 1985-1993, then joined the Southwest faculty in 1995. She retired from Southwest five years later. Although his sister was never nostalgic about her acting career, ‘‘she had great stories,’’ and kept in touch with stars like Mary Martin and Carol Channing, her brother said. ‘‘She loved English and literature and was an avid reader and wrote poetry,’’ he said. ‘‘She felt that if you were going to have a vocation, teaching was a proud and honorable thing. And she loved children.’’ Dorothy Siegel called her daughter a ‘‘sweet, gentle, kind, loving person who was devoted to me and my grandchildren,’’ Barry’s son Adam, and daughter Brandi, who considered their aunt a second mother. Marilyn Siegel was buried Oct. 17 at Lakeside Memorial Park in Miami. The family suggests memorial donations to the Shalom Bayit Domestic Abuse Program, Jewish Community Services of South Florida, 735 NE 125th St., Miami, FL 33161.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Jesse Gregg, who has been charged with armed bank robbery and possession of a firearm, entered the Bank of America on Northwest 186th Street, stood in line and when called to a teller window, handed the employee a note reading ‘‘Give me all the money I have a gun.’’ When a bank manager approached Gregg to see what was going on, the suspect pulled a handgun from the waistband of his pants, pointed it at the manager and ordered the manager to ‘‘stay back.’’ Gregg — who also goes by Gary Gregg and Jessie James Gregg — then ran. Gregg’s criminal record stretches back eight years to 2002, when he was arrested and charged with robbery with a deadly weapon. He was later convicted of that crime and sentenced to nearly five years in prison. — JAMES H. BURNETT III • HOLLYWOOD IT’S OK TO DRINK THE WATER ONCE AGAIN Drinking water for patrons at John U.

BY ARIEL BARKHURST Sun Sentinel A ban on begging, street vending and charity collections at major intersections makes this city the latest in Broward to take aim at roadside soliciting. Officials say traffic safety motivated the police department to recommend the change, which takes effect Monday. That’s why the ordinance details Broward’s history of pedestrian deaths involving panhandlers and hawkers, said Assistant Chief of Police Ray Black, pointing out that 65 pedestrians died in 2007 in the county and citing a unsolved 2007 hit-and-run in which a newspaper vendor was killed. ‘‘This is one of the most dangerous places for pedestrians in the county,’’ Black said. ‘‘We’re all challenged by the high volume of cars and pedestrian activ- ity.’’ But critics say the law — like others banning or limiting solicitations — is really aimed at the homeless, who often panhandle or sling newspapers on the street corner for cash. ‘‘Would it really be all about safety?’’ asked Sean Cononie, founder of the Homeless Voice shelter. ‘‘We don’t tell people they can’t walk across the street in Miramar. We don’t tell people they can’t ride their bikes in Miramar. And there’re so many more of those kinds of deaths than these.’’ The men and women staying in his shelter distribute Homeless Voice newspapers at intersections in exchange for donations, which are the shelter’s sole source of revenue. With the new ban, Cononie said, ‘‘it’s going to be hard to keep our doors open.’’ ‘‘This is not a safety issue, this is a homelessness issue,’’ said Ginny Dangola, director of operations for the shelter. ‘‘We’re safe. They take safety classes twice a week. They wear safety helmets and bright green vests. Our people have never been killed.’’ On Monday, anyone a police officer spots ‘‘offering for sale any thing or service of any kind, or seeking any donation of any kind,’’ will be subject to a fine of up to $500 and maximum of 60 days in jail. The law applies to Pembroke Road, Miramar Parkway, South State Road 7, Red Road, Flamingo Road and University Drive. Weston, Hollywood and Margate have also banned and limited solicitors in traffic, while Fort Lauderdale banned some kinds of soliciting on the beach. Palm Beach County and Oakland Park have run into criticism while trying to pass anti-soliciting laws, and St. Petersburg and the state of Florida have passed laws only to be challenged in court. Roadside soliciting, critics of the laws say, is a First Amendment right, and laws aimed specifically at panhandling discriminate against the homeless. Mirmar’s law bans every kind of solicitation, so it’s not legally discriminatory, said Benjamin Stevenson, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. But that doesn’t mean the law is blameless. ‘‘It’s a way around discriminating toward different solicitors,’’ he said, ‘‘but it’s not a way around the basic limitation of the right to solicit, which is a free speech right. The government has no business saying what speech is allowed in public places.’’ The city is not limiting speech, Black said, because soliciting is banned only in intersections on the city’s ‘‘major roads.’’ The ‘‘interior’’ roadways are still fair game, he said. Gerald Green, collecting coins in a milk crate at Miramar Parkway and University Drive, didn’t agree. ‘‘Where are we going to go, where there will be enough cars?’’ he asked. ‘‘We’re going to leave Miramar and go to a different city. That’s where we’re going to go.’’ RETAILERS Christmas tree buyers looking for bargains ■ Despite hard times, people are willing to shell out money for holiday trees and decorations. BY SARA K. CLARKE AND DOREEN HEMLOCK Sun Sentinel Consumers are shopping for bargains, even when it comes to Christmas trees. There are signs that more trees will be sold this year than last, but not without some sacrifices. ‘‘People are buying smaller trees. They are downsizing, just like with everything else in this economy,’’ said Kathy Chefas, one of the owners of Hart-TTree Farms, which operates more than a dozen tree lots in Broward and Palm Beach counties. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, which lobbies for growers, more people have indicated they are going to buy a real tree this year. The group expects Americans to buy between 32 million and 38 million trees, compared with 28.2 million a year ago, based on its poll of consumers after the last holiday season. ‘‘We’ll see if they follow through,’’ said Rick Dungey, an association spokesman. ‘‘That’d be a healthy year for our industry.’’ Sellers of artificial trees are optimistic as well. The American Christmas Tree Association says stores sold about 12 million fake trees in each of the past two years. This week, it said some of its members sold out by the Monday after Thanksgiving. ‘‘Even in a difficult economy, consumers will still spend their hard-earned cash on the things that are very important to them and to their families, including Christmas trees,’’ said Jami Warner, the group’s executive director. To adapt to the slow market, retailers are getting more aggressive with their marketing. Hart-T-Tree offers 10 percent-off coupons for buyers on its website. And it’s carefully managing inventory. John Chefas, Kathy Chefas’ husband, stays at the family tree farm in North Carolina, while she and son Steve run the South Florida sales. They update him daily, and he cuts trees to ship as needed to CARLINE JEAN/SUN SENTINEL PREPARING FOR HOLIDAYS: Cathy Spano of Delray Beach picks out a Douglas fir Christmas tree for her home Friday at a Hart-T-Tree Farms tree stand in Delray Beach. keep operating costs in check, Kathy Chefas said. Happy Holiday Christmas Trees is building its brand name by working more with festivals, such as Christmas on Las Olas and the Winterfest Boat Parade, forming partnerships with nonprofit groups such as Hope of South Florida and launching a Facebook page, said Jeremy Steinhart, president of sales and marketing. The company operates 11 locations in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. Two-thirds of Americans plan to shell out money for holiday decorations this year, including Christmas trees, lights and other items, according to a survey conducted on behalf of the National Retail Federation. Such shoppers say they plan to spend about $63, nearly even with last year and slightly more than in 2008. Prices are staying at last year’s levels, say most sellers, including Publix Super Markets. All 253 Southeast Florida stores stock Fraser firs, priced by height: six- to seven-foot trees for $49.99, seven- to eight-foot trees for $59.99 and eight- to nine-foot trees for $69.99, said spokeswoman Kimberly Jaeger. Publix sales started the day after Thanksgiving and have been better than last year, she said. Prices are based on quality and type. For example, a Fraser fir from Hart-T-Tree costs $55 to $70 for a seven-foot tree. ‘‘If it’s a perfect tree, you’ll pay a little more than if it has holes in the back,’’ Kathy Chefas said. Lowe’s rolled out live trees Thanksgiving week, and sells artificial trees, most for less than $300. Some families aren’t choosing between the two. ‘‘We’re seeing both [kinds of trees] be popular this year,’’ said Colleen Carbott, a Lowe’s spokeswoman. ‘‘Many American households have both a real and artificial Christmas tree in their home.’’ Sun Sentinel staff writer Doreen Hemlock can be reached at 305-810-5009. Christmas tree tips Buying the tree ■ Bargain. Don’t be afraid to offer less than a tree’s ticketed price. ■ Test for freshness. Feel the limbs and needles. Soft, pliable needles are good. Stiff, dry needles easily break off. ■ Shake the tree. If many needles fall off, it’s probably old and dry. Preserving ■ Cut the trunk base: Remove about a 1/2-inch thick disk from the base. Place tree in water as soon as possible. ■ Tree stands: As a general rule, stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Avoid whittling the sides of the trunk to fit a stand. The outer layers of wood are the most efficient in taking up water and should not be removed. Check the stand daily to make sure that the level of water does not go below the base of the tree. COURTS Captain in manslaughter case jailed after skipping court ■ A North Miami boat captain accused in the death of a passenger aboard his vessel was arrested after failing to show up in court. BY DAVID OVALLE [email protected] A boat captain charged with manslaughter for allegedly pushing a drunk passenger off his vessel on July 4th briefly went on the lam Friday after failing to appear for his arraignment. Eulices Alvarez Barrios, 38, of North Miami, was captured Friday afternoon, hours after a judge issued an arrest warrant. Barrios was being held at MiamiDade County Jail, records show. He is charged in the killing of Domingo Manuel Vilalta, 22, a construction worker he had partied with on his boat just south of the Broad Causeway in North Miami. ‘‘He doesn’t even have enough respect to face justice,’’ Vilalta’s uncle, Mario Castellanos, 47, said inside the courtroom after Bar- rios failed to appear. According to the Miami-Dade police homicide bureau, the men were among a group of young people partying on two boats on Independence Day. Barrios’ 32-foot Stamas Express had pulled over in the Meloy Channel so that a woman could jump in the water to urinate. Vilalta, whose autopsy showed was drunk, sat in the captain’s chair and turned on the propellers — jolting the boat and causing another passenger to fall in the water. According to an arrest warrant, an enraged Barrios threw Vilalta into the water. Both boats cruised away before anyone realized Vilalta was not on either vessel. His body was found two days later floating near Haulover Park Marina. Police said he was killed by the blades of a boat propeller. Barrios was arrested in late October and was supposed to be formally charged in court on Friday.

BY BRITTANY WALLMAN Sun Sentinel Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter took campaign contributions and didn’t report them. She gave thousands to her husband, who spent it at expensive restaurants. She served as treasurer of her own campaign, then turned in reports riddled with errors. She used campaign funds to pay her family’s cellphone bills, and her husband’s business phone charges. Those are among the revelations in documents the Florida Elections Commission released this week, detailing 28 misdemeanor charges against Ritter, who is accused of violating state elections law in her 2008 County Commission campaign. She was unopposed. Ritter, commissioner in Northwest Broward’s District 3, acknowledges the problems, but says she made no intentional errors. The former state legislator has run for office six times. A political foe, Brenda Chalifour, filed the complaint. ‘‘It was sloppy bookkeeping,’’ Ritter said Friday, ‘‘but under no circumstances was there any intent at all to violate campaign laws. We never used a single dollar to enrich ourselves.’’ Ritter was subpoenaed Jan. 6, asked to bring, among other things, receipts for checks she wrote to her husband and herself. Records from the state show Ritter gave almost $15,000 from her campaign to her husband, lobbyist Russ Klenet. His receipts show the money was spent on dinners at Café Bella Sera in Parkland, Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton, Emeril’s Miami Beach restaurant, P.F. Chang’s, Jackson’s Steakhouse and many other dining establishments. Some dinners ran a tab of more than $500. Scrawled on the receipts are explanations like ‘‘campaign staff dinner’’ or ‘‘volunteer meeting.’’ Ritter admits using campaign funds eating at restaurants, but she said the dining was all campaign related. Some of the checks to her husband haven’t been accounted for, but she said she’s looking for receipts for all of it. The state announced Nov. 10 it had found probable cause to believe Ritter broke the law on multiple counts; a final judgment won’t be made until she has the opportunity to defend herself at a hearing. In 515 pages of campaign reports and investigative narrative, Ritter is accused of breaking laws that ensure transparency and guard against corruption in political campaigns. Penalties for an FEC violation are at most $1,000 per violation. But the allegations are also under a microscope at the Broward state attorney’s office. ‘‘We already are looking at much of what the commission has examined,’’ spokesman Ron Ishoy told the Sun Sentinel. ‘‘As we do in most cases like this, we’ll get the [FEC’s] file.’’ The state documents shed new light on the Ritter charges, revealing, among other things, that Ritter used campaign funds to pay her childrens’ and husband’s cellphone bills. Total phone bills: $6,614.83. Ritter said she charged the phone bills to her campaign, to make up for the free office space, phone and fax usage she got from MARSHA HALPER/HERALD FILE, 2009 COUNTY OFFICIAL: Stacy Ritter is accused of violating elections law. her husband’s lobbying firm, which she used for her campaign office. She said she realized that ‘‘there was a potential problem’’ because she hadn’t paid Klenet for the office space. She consulted with an attorney and ‘‘we made a conscious decision that in order to even up the books and pay for what I’d already used, that we would pay cellphone bills and land lines of Russ’ office.’’ Brittany Wallman can be reached at bwallman @sunsentinel.com or 954-356-4541.

BY JON BURSTEIN Sun Sentinel Whatever secrets Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein’s former chief operating officer held, the federal government likely knows them now. Debra Villegas, who spent 17 years at Rothstein’s side, has been extensively cooperating with federal authorities, her attorney said at a Friday court hearing. She is working to get her 10-year prison sentence reduced for her role in the largest financial fraud in South Florida history. Villegas has met with federal authorities 13 times for a total of 35 hours in addition to six phone conferences, said her attorney, Robert Stickney. She also has spent 24 hours reviewing about 15,000 e-mails, alerting authorities to 60 that she said would be important to them. The revelations about the level of Villegas’ cooperation came as her attorney asked a federal magistrate to appoint him as her counsel because she no longer has the money to pay him. Villegas, 43, testified she is on u n e mploym e n t , which is VILLEGAS set to run out later this month. U.S. Magistrate Robin Rosenbaum found Villegas couldn’t afford an attorney, but if she received a courtappointed attorney, it wouldn’t be Stickney. Stickney then withdrew Villegas’ request for courtappointed counsel and announced he would represent her for free. Villegas is set to start serving her prison time in June, remaining free while she assists federal authorities in unraveling the massive fraud. She pleaded guilty in June to a moneylaundering conspiracy charge, admitting she forged signatures on phony legal settlements that Rothstein used to draw investors into the $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme. U.S. District Judge William Zloch, who imposed the maximum 10-year sentence on Villegas, also ordered her to pay $363 million in restitution to Rothstein’s 300-plus victims, a largely symbolic punishment. Villegas began working for Rothstein as a legal secretary, rising along with him to become the chief operating officer of the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm. Rothstein described her as his second-in-command, and paid her $250,000 a year. She once lived in a $475,000 home in Weston and drove a Maserati that Rothstein bought for her. Even before the Rothstein empire began crashing, Villegas had been in the headlines. In March 2008, her best friend, Melissa Britt Lewis, also an attorney at the firm, was killed. Villegas’ estranged husband, Tony Villegas, was charged with the slaying and is being held at the Broward County jail. Debra Villegas is the only other person besides Rothstein charged in the fraud so far. Rothstein is serving a 50-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to five charges. He also has been cooperating with federal authorities. Jon Burstein can be reached at [email protected] Sentinel.com or 954-356-4491.

YELLOW ■ State officials are pondering the next move after a judge dashed their hopes of terminating a contract with the current publisher of the state driver’s handbook. BY AARON SHAROCKMAN St. Petersburg Times TALLAHASSEE — The well-connected publisher of the official state driver manual can print the handbook for another five years, a Leon County judge ruled Thursday over the objections of the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The National Safety Commission, run by Jacksonville-area businessman Ken Underwood, has the right to a five-year extension even though the state wishes to terminate the contract, Judge Jackie L. Fulford said in a 24page ruling. Under his current contract, Underwood has been printing and distributing the handbook since 2005 at no cost to the state in return for the right to charge people $6.95 to ship the book, and the ability to include advertisements for his driving school. The National Safety Commission was the only bidder for the work back in 2005, but the state had hoped to terminate the agreement at the end of the year, saying it wanted to start over with a clean slate. Fulford said no. ‘‘The contract between the National Safety Commission and the department gives National Safety Commission an unambiguous, unilateral renewal option that was properly exercised by the National Safety Commission,’’ Fulford said in her ruling, which has been expected for months. The department said attorneys were reviewing the ruling ‘‘to determine our next step,’’ including whether to appeal. Ultimately, however, it will be up to Gov.elect Rick Scott whether to continue to pursue the case. Underwood, who donated $35,000 to Scott’s political action committee Let’s Get To Work and about $5,000 to Scott’s personal campaign account, doesn’t expect an appeal. ‘‘The new administration is all about cutting government waste and lowering spending,’’ he said ‘‘Why would the new administration spend thousands of dollars in court fighting for something that they currently get for free?’’ Underwood asked. The driver handbook contract has a rocky past. In 2006, news broke that Underwood hired lobbyist Sherry Dickinson, the wife of then-highway safety director Fred Dickinson, who approved the contract. An audit said the agency should have disclosed the potential conflict. And this year, former state Sen. Carey Baker of Eustis filed legislation that would have required the state to extend Underwood’s contract. The bill died in committee under intense skepticism from other lawmakers. This report was supplemented with material from the St. Petersburg Times.

BY MARC CAPUTO Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE — Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos admitted he made an ‘‘embarrassing’’ mistake when he repeatedly failed to properly fill out financial disclosure forms. On Friday, the Florida Commission on Ethics accepted Haridopolos’ formal admission that he violated the state Constitution by neglecting to detail his investments, a $400,000 home and a consulting job that earned him $120,000 from 2004 through 2008. But Haridopolos wasn’t fined Friday. The commission can’t do that under constitutional rules. That job is up to Haridopolos’ fellow senators. And they might not fine him at all. Haridopolos’ attorney, Pete Dunbar, said they shouldn’t make him pay any more because the errors were minimal, unintentional and were corrected as soon as Haridopolos learned of them. ‘‘He has paid enough. This is deeply embarrassing,’’ Dunbar said Friday after the commission approved Haridopolos’ acknowledgement of guilt. ‘‘This was a clerical error.’’ But it’s not going away. Regardless of what penalty — if any — Haridopolos’ Senate levies against its boss, the issue is sure to haunt him on the campaign trail. POSSIBLE RUN Haridopolos is already putting out feelers for a possible 2012 run for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson, putting the Merritt Island Republican on a crash course with fellow Republican U.S. GLENN BEIL/TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT/AP EYEING RUN: Sen. Mike Haridopolos, sworn in last month as Senate president, wasn’t fined Friday. Sen. George LeMieux. LeMieux’s deputy staff chief, Vivian Myrtetus, sent out an electronic Twitter message Friday that linked to a blog with the headline, ‘‘Haridopolos guilty in ethics violation.’’ Democrats also pounced. Shortly after the commission approved Haridopolos’ settlement agreement, the Florida Democratic Party sent out a press release with the headline ‘‘Haridopolos Kicks Off 2012 Senate Campaign By Pleading Guilty To Breaking Ethics Laws.’’ The ethics case against Haridopolos was brought by a sharp-eyed retiree, Vero Beach resident Eugene H. ‘‘Bucky’’ Benson, who noticed that Haridopolos failed to write the addresses of his employers, the Legislature and the University of Florida. Benson also spotted discrepancies in the way Haridopolos reported income through MJH Consulting Company, which performed work for a publicrelations firm called Syntax Communication and the marketing arm of an appliance company, Appliance Direct. ‘BIGGEST FARCE’ In an e-mail to reporters, Benson groused that the ethics commission was ‘‘the biggest farce in the world. . . . The Florida Legislature snookered Florida taxpayers into thinking that it governs ‘in the sunshine’ and the Ethics Commission is the taxpayer’s watchdog.’’ But Haridopolos said he’s committed to transparency and open government, which he said is what mortified him about his mistakes. Also, he noted to ethics investigators, he’s a college teacher and should’ve filled out the annual financial disclosure forms properly. He said that after he improperly filled out the forms in a matter of minutes the first time, he repeated his errors year after year. ‘‘I thought I did it correctly,’’ he told reporters last month. ‘‘I turned in the paper. No one turned it back with a red mark on it saying you did this wrong. And so for 10 years, I thought I did this right. My wife’s not happy with me. My newspaper’s not happy with me. And I’m not happy with me.

It could, says the head of the legislative black caucus. BY MARC CAPUTO Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE — The head of Florida’s black legislative caucus is complaining to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson that the mostly white Florida Democratic Party elite is ignoring African Americans and has all but crowned a new leader without their input. ‘‘We would urge you to recommend that the Party consider and select an African American candidate to assume the post of Party chair, which could potentially increase African American voter turnout and fundraising and would be historical for this State,’’ the caucus’ chairman, state Sen. Gary Siplin, wrote Nelson in a letter sent Thursday morning. But the letter was issued just as the only black candidate for party chairman, Andrew Gillum, threw his support to Rod Smith, the running mate in Alex Sink’s doomed bid for governor. With Gillum’s endorsement, Smith has garnered enough support to win party chairman next month. Nelson, who hasn’t responded to the letter and couldn’t be reached Friday, supports Smith. Siplin’s letter spells trouble for an already troubled Democratic Party. Despite a 600,000-voter edge, it lost every statewide election in November, leaving Nelson the only elected Democrat. The party also lost so many legislative seats that Republicans have vetoproof majorities in the House and Senate for the first time since Reconstruction. A major problem, Siplin said: Black voters weren’t inspired. The Sink-Smith t i c k e t e f fectively ran from President B a r a c k Obama, the first black U.S. presiNELSON dent. And the pair didn’t hire enough consultants with experience in getting black voters to the polls. Smith said he didn’t want to discuss Siplin’s letter ‘‘until I speak with him.’’ But Smith said Siplin is mistaken in believing black voters stayed home in disproportionate numbers. ‘‘African-American voters, compared to 2006, voted in bigger numbers,’’ Smith said. Siplin’s letter on behalf of the 24-member caucus urges the party to hire more black consultants, but he said he had no one in particular in mind. Siplin’s letter has a few peculiarities. The first draft addressed ‘‘Congress- man Nelson.’’ The second was written to ‘‘Senator Nelson.’’ It was also issued from a state Senate e-mail account by a state Senate employee who was engaging in partisan business.

BY KATHLEEN McGRORY [email protected] Christopher Belle had a personality as big as the sound that came from his French horn. ‘‘Sometimes in pep band, he would start randomly dancing,’’ said Clinton Hobbs, 17. ‘‘I never saw him sad. He always wanted to make everyone around him happy.’’ On Nov. 19, Chris was struck by a car while walking to school in Northwest Miami-Dade. He died last Saturday from complications caused by the accident. He was 18. Chris attended Michael Krop Senior High near Aventura, where he was a member of the school’s award-winning symphony orchestra, wood ensemble and pep band. ‘‘I wish I had another 3,000 students like him,’’ principal Matthew Welker said. ‘‘He was a wellrounded, well-adjusted young man who believed in education and cherished the opportunity to be at this school.’’ Chris started playing music while at Highland Oaks Middle. His first instrument was the trumpet. But in the 10th grade, the band director at Krop needed someone to play the French horn, one of the most challenging classical instruments. Chris volunteered. ‘‘He didn’t always love the French horn,’’ said Clinton, who plays the trombone. ‘‘But he grew to love it. It became part of him.’’ LASTING IMPRESSION Last spring, Chris and his peers traveled to Indianapolis to participate in a national music festival. The experience had a lasting impression on Chris and cemented his passion for band. But even more than his aptitude for music, Chris was known around school for his sense of humor and his positive attitude. Bringle Cidel, the band and orchestra conductor at Krop, said Chris constantly volunteered to help raise funds and inventory the instruments. He was also eager to take younger students under his wing. ‘‘He was a very giving individual,’’ Cidel said. ‘‘His character was what impressed me more than anything.’’ Alec Kreisberg, 17, had known Chris since middle school. ‘‘If you were feeling down, he would ask you what was on your mind and talk you through it,’’ Alec said. In addition to music, Chris enjoyed studying science and wanted to become a pharmacist. He had just gotten accepted to his dream school: Florida A&M University. The band director was about to offer him a full scholarship, Cidel said. Chris had recently written on his Facebook wall: ‘‘College is coming and time is changing. Leaving mom, some friends, some family, everything I know. I’m going to miss everything I love. . . . So, let’s do what we gotta do and make all the work count.’’ his closest friends. ‘‘We ate dinner and played video games,’’ Ariana Rogers said. ‘‘It was a really nice get-together.’’ Three days later, Chris and his younger sister, Chrystallyn, began their walk to school. The two had a close relationship; Chrystallyn is a junior at Krop. Around 7 a.m., Chris was struck by a car while trying to cross Northwest Second Avenue. Chrystallyn was not injured. Students and teachers at Krop say they feel the loss. ‘‘The ensemble won’t be the same without him,’’ Clinton said. Members of the Krop community are now raising money to help Chris’ family. His parents have been struggling financially and cannot afford the funeral and burial costs. The orchestra will collect donations at a concert on Dec. 9. at 7 p.m. in the Krop Senior High Auditorium, 1410 County Line Rd.

The Broward County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on Donovan on Thursday, officials said, but the office has not released findings. Sun Sentinel A 17-year-old boy turned himself in to Plantation police on Friday to face charges in the shooting death of his best friend. Dakota Alan Donovan, 18, was visiting four other teenage friends at a home in the 5200 block of Southwest Third Street in Plantation on Wednesday night when a gun went off, kill- ‘NOT INTENTIONAL’ Plantation police arrested the 17-year-old on Friday and charged him with manslaughter. The Broward State Attorney’s Office will decide whether to charge the teen, who is also from Plantation, with manslaughter and will also determine whether he will be tried as an adult or as a juvenile. ‘‘He brought the firearm to the residence,’’ Plantation police detective Philip Toman said. ‘‘They were playing around with it and it went off. It was not intentional,’’ he said. The teen surrendered to police with his attorney Lawrence Wolk at 3 p.m. He is being held at a juvenile facility in Fort Lauderdale. Wolk said his client attends Broward College. ‘‘He has been very remorseful, crying all day and night, and slept with his parents last night,’’ Wolk said, calling the shooting an accident. TRAUMATIZED ‘‘This was his best friend. He has been traumatized by the situation,’’ he said. Wolk said the shooting interrupted dreams that the boys shared of having a joint business. ‘‘They were best buddies and wanted to start with their mothers some type of catering business for yachts that needed provisions, and they would deliver them to the port,’’ Wolk said.

BY SOFIA SANTANA Sun Sentinel For the first time in years, Broward and Palm Beach counties do not lead the state in fatal prescription drug overdoses. The counties still rank high, though, according to the state’s latest drug death statistics released this week by medical examiners and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The numbers cover deaths that happened in the first half of this year and show the St. Petersburg area as being Florida’s current hot spot for prescription drug overdose deaths. OXYCODONE The drugs proving to be most lethal locally are the painkiller oxycodone, the main ingredient in such drugs as Roxicodone and OxyContin, and the antianxiety medication alprazolam — better known by the brand name Xanax. Prescription drug overdoses are less of an issue in Miami-Dade County, where alprazolam was involved in 13 fatal overdoses the first half of this year. Oxycodone was involved in 10 such cases. In both categories, Broward and Palm Beach counties saw minimal change this year, compared with the same period last year. Oxycodone was linked to 77 fatal overdoses in Broward and 68 in Palm Beach County during the first six months of this year. That toll was surpassed only by the St. Petersburg area — covering Pinellas and Pasco counties — that logged 137 such overdoses. Alprazolam was involved in 61 fatal overdoses in Broward and 31 in Palm Beach County during the first six months of this year. The death toll in the St. Petersburg area was 80. COCAINE Broward and Palm Beach counties, do, however, lead the state in fatal overdoses involving cocaine. Broward logged 32; Palm Beach County 35. In recent years, Broward and Palm Beach counties have eclipsed Miami-Dade in fatal cocaine overdoses. MiamiDade reported 14, one of the lowest tallies in the state. The one category Miami-Dade does rank high in statewide is fatal overdoses involving heroin. The county had 5, second behind the Orlando metro area, which reported 7. Medical examiners said in the report that nearly all of the people killed by overdoses had taken several different drugs at once right before they died. Many of the cases involved prescription sleep medications, including temazepam (brand name Restoril), and zolpidem (brand name Ambien). Authorities began tracking the medications this year. The report shows that of the thousands of autopsies medical examiners statewide performed, popular sleep medications were detected in toxicology more than 400 times. About a fifth of those instances involved fatal overdoses. MIAMI Suge Knight appeals lawsuit being tossed Rap mogul Marion ‘‘Suge’’ Knight has appealed a judge’s decision to toss out a lawsuit that Knight filed against hiphop star Kanye West over a 2005 shooting in Miami Beach. Knight’s attorney, Mark Brumer, filed the appeal Friday in Miami federal court. The judge granted a summary judgment last month for West and his companies. The case was set to go to trial this month. Knight was seeking more than $1 million in damages from West. Knight was shot in the leg a t a 2005 Miami Beach party hosted by West, whom Knight blames for lax security. The shooter has never been identified. The judge concluded there was no evidence that a shooting at the party was foreseeable. West’s attorney, Adam Josephs, has previously called the suit ill-conceived.

BY PATRICIA MAZZEI [email protected] While plunging home values and a decision not to raise property taxes offer many Miami residents a break on their tax bill this year, tucked in the budget are a host of rate and fee hikes that city leaders hope will make up for those missing dollars. Miami residents will now have to pay $250 fines after a third fire alarm. Retrieving a towed car will cost $134. And to get fingerprinted at the city’s police department, they will have to fork over $10. The moves are an attempt — along with salary and pension cuts — to fill the city’s $105 million budget hole, a vacuum caused in part by last year’s troubled stock market and a 2007 worker-friendly union contract that pushed many salaries sky high. The city expects the fees, from fire inspections to vehicle impoundment to emergency medical services, to raise $18 million. Most of the new rates went into effect on Oct. 1, the first day of the new budget year. Of course, the city’s estimates are just that — educated guesses on how much money it expects to make off all the new revenue streams, including $8 million in fines from new red-light cameras at key Miami intersections. The impact of some of the hikes is straightforward: Home- LARGER THAN LIFE IN PERSON owners will pay an additional $15 a year for waste hauling, for example, raising their yearly garbage pickup rate to $380. Businesses will have to pay $500 for each slot-like coin-operated video game machine in their establishments. So far, city officials say the only complaints have come from parents whose children swim in Miami’s public pools, which now have hiked fees for kids to enroll in the city’s swim team. • TURN TO FEES, 2B - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - City hopes hiked fees will save budget Mayor Tomás Regalado and other city officials have defended the fee hikes as a way to keep the financially strapped city afloat without raising Miami’s property tax rate. WATSON ISLAND MIAMI GLADES: The winning entry came from a team from Seoul, South Korea. Ideas dazzle, but remain just dreams ■ In its third year, DawnTown Miami again received dozens of creative designs, this time for a new seaplane terminal at Watson Island. BY CHARLES RABIN AND ANDRES VIGLUCCI [email protected] MARSHA HALPER/MIAMI HERALD STAFF Joel Osteen, accompanied by his wife Victoria, brought his feel-good sermon to Miami for ‘‘A Night of Hope’’ Friday. Thousands packed the AmericanAirlines Arena to hear Osteen’s blend of motivational speaking, worship and gospel-rock. His message, aimed at Christians and non-Christians alike, is beamed worldwide from his Texas church every Sunday. Blend a touch of the Everglades with a rooftop garden of native vegetation over a sleek hangar shaped like airplane wings. Underneath, leave plenty of open space with an airy feel open to the water. And of course, top it off with an unobstructed view of downtown Miami’s skyline. Presto! Miami finally has the sexy, sleek seaplane terminal at Watson Island that industry and city leaders have craved for decades. The dream — the reality is not much has been built on the main link between Miami Beach and the mainland, and nothing is expected any time soon — was envisioned Friday thanks to an architectural competition called DawnTown. It’s the third year of a worldwide competition of dazzling ideas sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Downtown Development Authority. This year’s winning entry was ‘‘Miami Glades,’’ submitted by Trevor Curtis and Sylvia Kim of CA Landscape of Seoul, South Korea. Other entries were offered from Moscow, even Bulgaria. The winners and runners-up were announced at Miami Dade College’s Batten Room in downtown Miami Friday. ‘‘Wonderful designs flowed in from all around the world,’’ said Andrew Frey, credited with creating the DawnTown theme and putting the pieces together.

As an adult, she shared her love of language with young students in Miami-Dade County. BY ELINOR J. BRECHER [email protected] ON BROADWAY: Robert Preston sings with Marilyn on his shoulder in ‘The Music Man.’ For 20 years, Marilyn Siegel was a high school English teacher and creative-writing instructor in the Miami-Dade County school system. Few students knew she’d once been Marilyn Rogers, a singing, dancing child actor who appeared in legendary Broadway musicals, Holly- wood movies, and was all over network television in the 1950s and ’60s. An original cast member of Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music and The Music Man, Marilyn Rogers appeared opposite A-list stars like Zero Mostel, Mary Martin and Robert Preston. The shows won Tony Awards; the original cast albums, on which she sang, won Grammys. ‘‘But I don’t think she ever thought it was going to be her career,’’ said her brother, Dr. Barry Siegel, a Miami physician. • TURN TO SIEGEL, 2B ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HA1B_011204 System MIAE by EMCDONALD MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Time 22:19:50 Date 12/03/10 Story # 0 Story name HA1B_011204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user EMCDONALD B , 1, A1 , Keyword: |HB1B_021204Kf~ 2B SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 FLORIDA LOTTERY RESULTS MIDDAY CASH 3 6-9-6 MIDDAY PLAY 4 5-8-0-9 NIGHT CASH 3 4-9-4 NIGHT PLAY 4 2-2-7-0 For Friday night’s Mega Money and Fantasy 5 drawings, see flalottery.com SELECTED THURSDAY, DEC. 2 FANTASY 5: 2-14-15-18-35 CORRECT PAYOFF WINNERS 5 of 5 Rolldown 0 4 of 5 $555 242 3 of 5 $25 7,929 SELECTED WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1 FANTASY 5: 2-13-19-32-34 PAYOFF |HB1B_021204M¤~ CYAN LOCAL & STATE B1 MAGENTA |[email protected]~ MiamiHerald.com/Broward YELLOW THE MIAMI HERALD MIAMI SELECTED FRIDAY, DEC. 3 CORRECT |HB1B_021204Cm~ BLACK WINNERS 5 of 5 $119,780.59 2 4 of 5 $134 288 3 of 5 $12 8,861 LOTTO: 16-20-32-43-48-52 Xtra: x4 CORRECT PAYOFF WINNERS 6 of 6 Rollover 0 5 of 6 $868.50 191 4 of 6 $83 1,597 3 of 6 $5.50 31,804 Next jackpot: $11 million Residents feel pinch of fee hikes • FEES, FROM 1B Joining the team, with practices five days a week, used to only cost an annual $10 registration fee. Now, in addition to the yearly registration, city residents will have to pay $45 a month for two or three practices a week. ‘SACRIFICE’ ‘‘They’re going to offer less and charge more,’’ lamented Veronica De La Cadena, recently watching her 7-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Norori, practice at the pool in Little Havana’s Jose Martí Park. ‘‘Starting January, I won’t be able to afford to bring her five days a week anymore.’’ Added Daniela Gomez, whose 6-year-old son, Javier, is also a swimmer: ‘‘My son loves it. We have to sacrifice.’’ To help families cover the new charges, Miami’s parks and recreation department has offered scholarships for low-income families. There’s also a reduced rate for families enrolling more than one child on the swim team. The alternative to the fee hikes — closing some pools during the winter months — would have been worse, Mayor Tomás Regalado said. ‘‘A lot of parents were grateful’’ that the pools remained open. In other instances, breaking down exactly how much each fee has increased is much more difficult because it is based on percentages. Dockage rates at Miami’s city-owned marinas, for example, were increased by an average of 4 percent in September. Fees for building permits were changed from flat rates to percentages based on the size and scope of projects.

I AM MDC Janette San Pedro Corral MDC Alumna Teacher SoMi Somerset Academy Charter School Join the Alumni Network www.mdcalumni.com DAWNTOWN, FROM 1B thousands of miles away, Friday’s audience was entertained with a host of videos, many quite funny. A shaggy-haired fellow in Moscow stood before pictures of a giant clam-like structure that opened and closed as planes entered and exited. Gerd Wetzel and Marty Plock of Basel, Switzerland — coincidence as this week’s art events abound — finished in third place with plan called ‘‘Miami Loop.’’ The structure looked like a giant circular earring with an off-kilter doughnut hole in the mid- dle, that could be pushed partially into the bay. Locally, the team from NC-Office of Miami pieced together ‘‘Large Roof,’’ which from above looked much like crinkled paper, but inside offered a cavernous, castle-like feel. The video and project pieced together by Florida International University professor Nik Nedev, his brother Peter Nedev, Elizabeth Cardona, Cristina Canton and Jorge San Martin was the funniest, as they filmed what looked like someone eyeing the structure from inside an airplane made of cardboard with a cut-out win- dow as it flew to Watson Island. The goal of the architectural competition is to solicit dazzling ideas to spiff up downtown Miami’s worn public infrastructure, which has failed to keep pace with the district’s burgeoning revival. Last year’s winning entry, from Australia, proposed putting a shell-like ‘‘diaphragm’’ over the long-shuttered Bicentennial Park Metromover tracks, and setting it aglow. The previous year, the whimsical winner was a scheme to cover the park’s drab sewage pump station, which fronts Biscayne Boulevard, with a giant, writhing and very orange anemone-like creature. Neither scheme has been realized. But the competition’s sponsors have met with city and Miami-Dade County officials, hoping they can take some elements — or, at least, inspiration — from the conceptual plans as they transform Bicentennial Park into the longplanned Museum Park. The contest, the brainchild of Frey, a Miami lawyer and former urban planner, has drawn scores of entries from around the world since its inception. This year, DawnTown received more than 100 submissions. The three winners — selected by a panel of local experts — receive cash prizes, with first place getting $8,000. Second place and $4,000 went to a plan called ‘‘Amphibian,’’ composed by a group from New York City. The seaport would be made of four rectangular tilted prisms on various angles that touched the water and reached toward the sky. ‘‘Miami Loop’’ won its creators $2,000.

SIEGEL, FROM 1B By the early 1970s, ‘‘she had fulfilled her needs as a childhood actress. She felt she wanted to pursue her education and a teaching career.’’ Born Oct. 4, 1947, in Brooklyn, Marilyn Joy Siegel died Oct. 13 in Miami. She was 63, and according to her brother, took her own life. Barry Siegel said that when he and his sister were kids in Brooklyn, their mother took them to script readings ‘‘as an activity,’’ along with piano and dance lessons. ‘‘There were always other kids there who were in the business,’’ he recalled. ‘‘One of the mothers said to her she should take Marilyn for commercials, and before you knew it, she was a hot item. . . She had a great voice.’’ She became Rogers after composer Richard Rodgers told her that Siegel was ‘‘too Jewish,’’ Barry Siegel said. (Rodgers was also Jewish). Richard Rodgers wrote the music for The Sound of Music, which opened on Broadway in 1959. Marilyn — who had long, dark pigtails and blue eyes — and was cast as Brigitta von Trapp. Mary Martin starred as Maria; Theodore Bikel as Capt. von Trapp. By then, Rogers was already a Broadway veteran, having appeared as Judy in Hide and Seek, with Basil Rathbone and Geraldine Fitzgerald. It closed after a week in 1957. That year, Siegel landed the role of Amaryllis, the little girl who took piano lessons from Marian ‘‘the librarian’’ Paroo — Barbara Cook — love interest of the scheming band leader Harold Hill — Robert Preston — in The Music Man. It ran for 1,375 performances. In 1964, Siegel was cast as Shprintze, the fourth of Tevye the dairyman’s six daughters in Fiddler, starring Mostel. Her films included Ladybug, Ladybug, and Up the Down Staircase. ‘‘She had some bad breaks too,’’ said her mother, Dorothy Siegel of Miami. Marilyn successfully auditioned for the 1961 drama The Children’s Hour, with Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine and James Garner, but her mother said she couldn’t get out of her Sound of Music contract. ‘‘She loved [acting] very much,’’ Dorothy Siegel said. She attended a professional childrens’ school in Manhattan, and worked with a private coach, and an agent. MAKING MUSIC: Marilyn (with pigtails) sang with Mary Martin in ‘The Sound of Music.’ ‘‘It was just so natural for her,’’ her mother said. On television, Siegel appeared on The Jimmy Stewart Show, The Doctors, Route 66, Naked City, East Side/West Side, Look Up and Live, Kraft Theater, the Ed Sullivan Show, The U.S. Steel Hour, What’s My Line?, The Kaiser Aluminum Hour, Goodyear Playhouse, I Remember Mama, Big Story, Omnibus and Studio One. ‘‘She often went up against Patty Duke’’ in auditions, Barry Siegel said. ‘‘They knew each other very well.’’ But her mother advised her to develop another career, just in case show business didn’t work out. ‘‘I told her, ‘Don’t listen to me; speak with the kids’ — that’s what they called the singers and dancers on Broadway — and they told her they were sorry they didn’t have didn’t have something to fall back on,’’ Dorothy Siegel said. After graduating from Brooklyn College, Siegel began teaching, then moved with her parents, Dorothy and the late Seymour Siegel, to South Florida in 1974. After working several years in private schools, she joined Miami-Dade in 1978 as an adult education English teacher, and Florida International Univer- sity as a visiting professor in the Intensive English program for foreign students, from 1979-1985. She taught creative writing and 10th-grade English at South Miami Senior High from 1985-1993, then joined the Southwest faculty in 1995. She retired from Southwest five years later. Although his sister was never nostalgic about her acting career, ‘‘she had great stories,’’ and kept in touch with stars like Mary Martin and Carol Channing, her brother said. ‘‘She loved English and literature and was an avid reader and wrote poetry,’’ he said. ‘‘She felt that if you were going to have a vocation, teaching was a proud and honorable thing. And she loved children.’’ Dorothy Siegel called her daughter a ‘‘sweet, gentle, kind, loving person who was devoted to me and my grandchildren,’’ Barry’s son Adam, and daughter Brandi, who considered their aunt a second mother. Marilyn Siegel was buried Oct. 17 at Lakeside Memorial Park in Miami. The family suggests memorial donations to the Shalom Bayit Domestic Abuse Program, Jewish Community Services of South Florida, 735 NE 125th St., Miami, FL 33161.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Jesse Gregg, who has been charged with armed bank robbery and possession of a firearm, entered the Bank of America on Northwest 186th Street, stood in line and when called to a teller window, handed the employee a note reading ‘‘Give me all the money I have a gun.’’ When a bank manager approached Gregg to see what was going on, the suspect pulled a handgun from the waistband of his pants, pointed it at the manager and ordered the manager to ‘‘stay back.’’ Gregg — who also goes by Gary Gregg and Jessie James Gregg — then ran. Gregg’s criminal record stretches back eight years to 2002, when he was arrested and charged with robbery with a deadly weapon. He was later convicted of that crime and sentenced to nearly five years in prison. — JAMES H. BURNETT III • HOLLYWOOD IT’S OK TO DRINK THE WATER ONCE AGAIN Drinking water for patrons at John U.

BY ARIEL BARKHURST Sun Sentinel A ban on begging, street vending and charity collections at major intersections makes this city the latest in Broward to take aim at roadside soliciting. Officials say traffic safety motivated the police department to recommend the change, which takes effect Monday. That’s why the ordinance details Broward’s history of pedestrian deaths involving panhandlers and hawkers, said Assistant Chief of Police Ray Black, pointing out that 65 pedestrians died in 2007 in the county and citing a unsolved 2007 hit-and-run in which a newspaper vendor was killed. ‘‘This is one of the most dangerous places for pedestrians in the county,’’ Black said. ‘‘We’re all challenged by the high volume of cars and pedestrian activ- ity.’’ But critics say the law — like others banning or limiting solicitations — is really aimed at the homeless, who often panhandle or sling newspapers on the street corner for cash. ‘‘Would it really be all about safety?’’ asked Sean Cononie, founder of the Homeless Voice shelter. ‘‘We don’t tell people they can’t walk across the street in Miramar. We don’t tell people they can’t ride their bikes in Miramar. And there’re so many more of those kinds of deaths than these.’’ The men and women staying in his shelter distribute Homeless Voice newspapers at intersections in exchange for donations, which are the shelter’s sole source of revenue. With the new ban, Cononie said, ‘‘it’s going to be hard to keep our doors open.’’ ‘‘This is not a safety issue, this is a homelessness issue,’’ said Ginny Dangola, director of operations for the shelter. ‘‘We’re safe. They take safety classes twice a week. They wear safety helmets and bright green vests. Our people have never been killed.’’ On Monday, anyone a police officer spots ‘‘offering for sale any thing or service of any kind, or seeking any donation of any kind,’’ will be subject to a fine of up to $500 and maximum of 60 days in jail. The law applies to Pembroke Road, Miramar Parkway, South State Road 7, Red Road, Flamingo Road and University Drive. Weston, Hollywood and Margate have also banned and limited solicitors in traffic, while Fort Lauderdale banned some kinds of soliciting on the beach. Palm Beach County and Oakland Park have run into criticism while trying to pass anti-soliciting laws, and St. Petersburg and the state of Florida have passed laws only to be challenged in court. Roadside soliciting, critics of the laws say, is a First Amendment right, and laws aimed specifically at panhandling discriminate against the homeless. Mirmar’s law bans every kind of solicitation, so it’s not legally discriminatory, said Benjamin Stevenson, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. But that doesn’t mean the law is blameless. ‘‘It’s a way around discriminating toward different solicitors,’’ he said, ‘‘but it’s not a way around the basic limitation of the right to solicit, which is a free speech right. The government has no business saying what speech is allowed in public places.’’ The city is not limiting speech, Black said, because soliciting is banned only in intersections on the city’s ‘‘major roads.’’ The ‘‘interior’’ roadways are still fair game, he said. Gerald Green, collecting coins in a milk crate at Miramar Parkway and University Drive, didn’t agree. ‘‘Where are we going to go, where there will be enough cars?’’ he asked. ‘‘We’re going to leave Miramar and go to a different city. That’s where we’re going to go.’’ RETAILERS Christmas tree buyers looking for bargains ■ Despite hard times, people are willing to shell out money for holiday trees and decorations. BY SARA K. CLARKE AND DOREEN HEMLOCK Sun Sentinel Consumers are shopping for bargains, even when it comes to Christmas trees. There are signs that more trees will be sold this year than last, but not without some sacrifices. ‘‘People are buying smaller trees. They are downsizing, just like with everything else in this economy,’’ said Kathy Chefas, one of the owners of Hart-TTree Farms, which operates more than a dozen tree lots in Broward and Palm Beach counties. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, which lobbies for growers, more people have indicated they are going to buy a real tree this year. The group expects Americans to buy between 32 million and 38 million trees, compared with 28.2 million a year ago, based on its poll of consumers after the last holiday season. ‘‘We’ll see if they follow through,’’ said Rick Dungey, an association spokesman. ‘‘That’d be a healthy year for our industry.’’ Sellers of artificial trees are optimistic as well. The American Christmas Tree Association says stores sold about 12 million fake trees in each of the past two years. This week, it said some of its members sold out by the Monday after Thanksgiving. ‘‘Even in a difficult economy, consumers will still spend their hard-earned cash on the things that are very important to them and to their families, including Christmas trees,’’ said Jami Warner, the group’s executive director. To adapt to the slow market, retailers are getting more aggressive with their marketing. Hart-T-Tree offers 10 percent-off coupons for buyers on its website. And it’s carefully managing inventory. John Chefas, Kathy Chefas’ husband, stays at the family tree farm in North Carolina, while she and son Steve run the South Florida sales. They update him daily, and he cuts trees to ship as needed to CARLINE JEAN/SUN SENTINEL PREPARING FOR HOLIDAYS: Cathy Spano of Delray Beach picks out a Douglas fir Christmas tree for her home Friday at a Hart-T-Tree Farms tree stand in Delray Beach. keep operating costs in check, Kathy Chefas said. Happy Holiday Christmas Trees is building its brand name by working more with festivals, such as Christmas on Las Olas and the Winterfest Boat Parade, forming partnerships with nonprofit groups such as Hope of South Florida and launching a Facebook page, said Jeremy Steinhart, president of sales and marketing. The company operates 11 locations in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. Two-thirds of Americans plan to shell out money for holiday decorations this year, including Christmas trees, lights and other items, according to a survey conducted on behalf of the National Retail Federation. Such shoppers say they plan to spend about $63, nearly even with last year and slightly more than in 2008. Prices are staying at last year’s levels, say most sellers, including Publix Super Markets. All 253 Southeast Florida stores stock Fraser firs, priced by height: six- to seven-foot trees for $49.99, seven- to eight-foot trees for $59.99 and eight- to nine-foot trees for $69.99, said spokeswoman Kimberly Jaeger. Publix sales started the day after Thanksgiving and have been better than last year, she said. Prices are based on quality and type. For example, a Fraser fir from Hart-T-Tree costs $55 to $70 for a seven-foot tree. ‘‘If it’s a perfect tree, you’ll pay a little more than if it has holes in the back,’’ Kathy Chefas said. Lowe’s rolled out live trees Thanksgiving week, and sells artificial trees, most for less than $300. Some families aren’t choosing between the two. ‘‘We’re seeing both [kinds of trees] be popular this year,’’ said Colleen Carbott, a Lowe’s spokeswoman. ‘‘Many American households have both a real and artificial Christmas tree in their home.’’ Sun Sentinel staff writer Doreen Hemlock can be reached at 305-810-5009. Christmas tree tips Buying the tree ■ Bargain. Don’t be afraid to offer less than a tree’s ticketed price. ■ Test for freshness. Feel the limbs and needles. Soft, pliable needles are good. Stiff, dry needles easily break off. ■ Shake the tree. If many needles fall off, it’s probably old and dry. Preserving ■ Cut the trunk base: Remove about a 1/2-inch thick disk from the base. Place tree in water as soon as possible. ■ Tree stands: As a general rule, stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Avoid whittling the sides of the trunk to fit a stand. The outer layers of wood are the most efficient in taking up water and should not be removed. Check the stand daily to make sure that the level of water does not go below the base of the tree. COURTS Captain in manslaughter case jailed after skipping court ■ A North Miami boat captain accused in the death of a passenger aboard his vessel was arrested after failing to show up in court. BY DAVID OVALLE [email protected] A boat captain charged with manslaughter for allegedly pushing a drunk passenger off his vessel on July 4th briefly went on the lam Friday after failing to appear for his arraignment. Eulices Alvarez Barrios, 38, of North Miami, was captured Friday afternoon, hours after a judge issued an arrest warrant. Barrios was being held at MiamiDade County Jail, records show. He is charged in the killing of Domingo Manuel Vilalta, 22, a construction worker he had partied with on his boat just south of the Broad Causeway in North Miami. ‘‘He doesn’t even have enough respect to face justice,’’ Vilalta’s uncle, Mario Castellanos, 47, said inside the courtroom after Bar- rios failed to appear. According to the Miami-Dade police homicide bureau, the men were among a group of young people partying on two boats on Independence Day. Barrios’ 32-foot Stamas Express had pulled over in the Meloy Channel so that a woman could jump in the water to urinate. Vilalta, whose autopsy showed was drunk, sat in the captain’s chair and turned on the propellers — jolting the boat and causing another passenger to fall in the water. According to an arrest warrant, an enraged Barrios threw Vilalta into the water. Both boats cruised away before anyone realized Vilalta was not on either vessel. His body was found two days later floating near Haulover Park Marina. Police said he was killed by the blades of a boat propeller. Barrios was arrested in late October and was supposed to be formally charged in court on Friday.

BY BRITTANY WALLMAN Sun Sentinel Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter took campaign contributions and didn’t report them. She gave thousands to her husband, who spent it at expensive restaurants. She served as treasurer of her own campaign, then turned in reports riddled with errors. She used campaign funds to pay her family’s cellphone bills, and her husband’s business phone charges. Those are among the revelations in documents the Florida Elections Commission released this week, detailing 28 misdemeanor charges against Ritter, who is accused of violating state elections law in her 2008 County Commission campaign. She was unopposed. Ritter, commissioner in Northwest Broward’s District 3, acknowledges the problems, but says she made no intentional errors. The former state legislator has run for office six times. A political foe, Brenda Chalifour, filed the complaint. ‘‘It was sloppy bookkeeping,’’ Ritter said Friday, ‘‘but under no circumstances was there any intent at all to violate campaign laws. We never used a single dollar to enrich ourselves.’’ Ritter was subpoenaed Jan. 6, asked to bring, among other things, receipts for checks she wrote to her husband and herself. Records from the state show Ritter gave almost $15,000 from her campaign to her husband, lobbyist Russ Klenet. His receipts show the money was spent on dinners at Café Bella Sera in Parkland, Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton, Emeril’s Miami Beach restaurant, P.F. Chang’s, Jackson’s Steakhouse and many other dining establishments. Some dinners ran a tab of more than $500. Scrawled on the receipts are explanations like ‘‘campaign staff dinner’’ or ‘‘volunteer meeting.’’ Ritter admits using campaign funds eating at restaurants, but she said the dining was all campaign related. Some of the checks to her husband haven’t been accounted for, but she said she’s looking for receipts for all of it. The state announced Nov. 10 it had found probable cause to believe Ritter broke the law on multiple counts; a final judgment won’t be made until she has the opportunity to defend herself at a hearing. In 515 pages of campaign reports and investigative narrative, Ritter is accused of breaking laws that ensure transparency and guard against corruption in political campaigns. Penalties for an FEC violation are at most $1,000 per violation. But the allegations are also under a microscope at the Broward state attorney’s office. ‘‘We already are looking at much of what the commission has examined,’’ spokesman Ron Ishoy told the Sun Sentinel. ‘‘As we do in most cases like this, we’ll get the [FEC’s] file.’’ The state documents shed new light on the Ritter charges, revealing, among other things, that Ritter used campaign funds to pay her childrens’ and husband’s cellphone bills. Total phone bills: $6,614.83. Ritter said she charged the phone bills to her campaign, to make up for the free office space, phone and fax usage she got from MARSHA HALPER/HERALD FILE, 2009 COUNTY OFFICIAL: Stacy Ritter is accused of violating elections law. her husband’s lobbying firm, which she used for her campaign office. She said she realized that ‘‘there was a potential problem’’ because she hadn’t paid Klenet for the office space. She consulted with an attorney and ‘‘we made a conscious decision that in order to even up the books and pay for what I’d already used, that we would pay cellphone bills and land lines of Russ’ office.’’ Brittany Wallman can be reached at bwallman @sunsentinel.com or 954-356-4541.

BY JON BURSTEIN Sun Sentinel Whatever secrets Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein’s former chief operating officer held, the federal government likely knows them now. Debra Villegas, who spent 17 years at Rothstein’s side, has been extensively cooperating with federal authorities, her attorney said at a Friday court hearing. She is working to get her 10-year prison sentence reduced for her role in the largest financial fraud in South Florida history. Villegas has met with federal authorities 13 times for a total of 35 hours in addition to six phone conferences, said her attorney, Robert Stickney. She also has spent 24 hours reviewing about 15,000 e-mails, alerting authorities to 60 that she said would be important to them. The revelations about the level of Villegas’ cooperation came as her attorney asked a federal magistrate to appoint him as her counsel because she no longer has the money to pay him. Villegas, 43, testified she is on u n e mploym e n t , which is VILLEGAS set to run out later this month. U.S. Magistrate Robin Rosenbaum found Villegas couldn’t afford an attorney, but if she received a courtappointed attorney, it wouldn’t be Stickney. Stickney then withdrew Villegas’ request for courtappointed counsel and announced he would represent her for free. Villegas is set to start serving her prison time in June, remaining free while she assists federal authorities in unraveling the massive fraud. She pleaded guilty in June to a moneylaundering conspiracy charge, admitting she forged signatures on phony legal settlements that Rothstein used to draw investors into the $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme. U.S. District Judge William Zloch, who imposed the maximum 10-year sentence on Villegas, also ordered her to pay $363 million in restitution to Rothstein’s 300-plus victims, a largely symbolic punishment. Villegas began working for Rothstein as a legal secretary, rising along with him to become the chief operating officer of the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm. Rothstein described her as his second-in-command, and paid her $250,000 a year. She once lived in a $475,000 home in Weston and drove a Maserati that Rothstein bought for her. Even before the Rothstein empire began crashing, Villegas had been in the headlines. In March 2008, her best friend, Melissa Britt Lewis, also an attorney at the firm, was killed. Villegas’ estranged husband, Tony Villegas, was charged with the slaying and is being held at the Broward County jail. Debra Villegas is the only other person besides Rothstein charged in the fraud so far. Rothstein is serving a 50-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to five charges. He also has been cooperating with federal authorities. Jon Burstein can be reached at [email protected] Sentinel.com or 954-356-4491.

YELLOW ■ State officials are pondering the next move after a judge dashed their hopes of terminating a contract with the current publisher of the state driver’s handbook. BY AARON SHAROCKMAN St. Petersburg Times TALLAHASSEE — The well-connected publisher of the official state driver manual can print the handbook for another five years, a Leon County judge ruled Thursday over the objections of the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The National Safety Commission, run by Jacksonville-area businessman Ken Underwood, has the right to a five-year extension even though the state wishes to terminate the contract, Judge Jackie L. Fulford said in a 24page ruling. Under his current contract, Underwood has been printing and distributing the handbook since 2005 at no cost to the state in return for the right to charge people $6.95 to ship the book, and the ability to include advertisements for his driving school. The National Safety Commission was the only bidder for the work back in 2005, but the state had hoped to terminate the agreement at the end of the year, saying it wanted to start over with a clean slate. Fulford said no. ‘‘The contract between the National Safety Commission and the department gives National Safety Commission an unambiguous, unilateral renewal option that was properly exercised by the National Safety Commission,’’ Fulford said in her ruling, which has been expected for months. The department said attorneys were reviewing the ruling ‘‘to determine our next step,’’ including whether to appeal. Ultimately, however, it will be up to Gov.elect Rick Scott whether to continue to pursue the case. Underwood, who donated $35,000 to Scott’s political action committee Let’s Get To Work and about $5,000 to Scott’s personal campaign account, doesn’t expect an appeal. ‘‘The new administration is all about cutting government waste and lowering spending,’’ he said ‘‘Why would the new administration spend thousands of dollars in court fighting for something that they currently get for free?’’ Underwood asked. The driver handbook contract has a rocky past. In 2006, news broke that Underwood hired lobbyist Sherry Dickinson, the wife of then-highway safety director Fred Dickinson, who approved the contract. An audit said the agency should have disclosed the potential conflict. And this year, former state Sen. Carey Baker of Eustis filed legislation that would have required the state to extend Underwood’s contract. The bill died in committee under intense skepticism from other lawmakers.

BY MARC CAPUTO Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE — Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos admitted he made an ‘‘embarrassing’’ mistake when he repeatedly failed to properly fill out financial disclosure forms. On Friday, the Florida Commission on Ethics accepted Haridopolos’ formal admission that he violated the state Constitution by neglecting to detail his investments, a $400,000 home and a consulting job that earned him $120,000 from 2004 through 2008. But Haridopolos wasn’t fined Friday. The commission can’t do that under constitutional rules. That job is up to Haridopolos’ fellow senators. And they might not fine him at all. Haridopolos’ attorney, Pete Dunbar, said they shouldn’t make him pay any more because the errors were minimal, unintentional and were corrected as soon as Haridopolos learned of them. ‘‘He has paid enough. This is deeply embarrassing,’’ Dunbar said Friday after the commission approved Haridopolos’ acknowledgement of guilt. ‘‘This was a clerical error.’’ But it’s not going away. Regardless of what penalty — if any — Haridopolos’ Senate levies against its boss, the issue is sure to haunt him on the campaign trail. POSSIBLE RUN Haridopolos is already putting out feelers for a possible 2012 run for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson, putting the Merritt Island Republican on a crash course with fellow Republican U.S. GLENN BEIL/TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT/AP EYEING RUN: Sen. Mike Haridopolos, sworn in last month as Senate president, wasn’t fined Friday. Sen. George LeMieux. LeMieux’s deputy staff chief, Vivian Myrtetus, sent out an electronic Twitter message Friday that linked to a blog with the headline, ‘‘Haridopolos guilty in ethics violation.’’ Democrats also pounced. Shortly after the commission approved Haridopolos’ settlement agreement, the Florida Democratic Party sent out a press release with the headline ‘‘Haridopolos Kicks Off 2012 Senate Campaign By Pleading Guilty To Breaking Ethics Laws.’’ The ethics case against Haridopolos was brought by a sharp-eyed retiree, Vero Beach resident Eugene H. ‘‘Bucky’’ Benson, who noticed that Haridopolos failed to write the addresses of his employers, the Legislature and the University of Florida. Benson also spotted discrepancies in the way Haridopolos reported income through MJH Consulting Company, which performed work for a publicrelations firm called Syntax Communication and the marketing arm of an appliance company, Appliance Direct. ‘BIGGEST FARCE’ In an e-mail to reporters, Benson groused that the ethics commission was ‘‘the biggest farce in the world. . . . The Florida Legislature snookered Florida taxpayers into thinking that it governs ‘in the sunshine’ and the Ethics Commission is the taxpayer’s watchdog.’’ But Haridopolos said he’s committed to transparency and open government, which he said is what mortified him about his mistakes. Also, he noted to ethics investigators, he’s a college teacher and should’ve filled out the annual financial disclosure forms properly. He said that after he improperly filled out the forms in a matter of minutes the first time, he repeated his errors year after year. ‘‘I thought I did it correctly,’’ he told reporters last month. ‘‘I turned in the paper. No one turned it back with a red mark on it saying you did this wrong. And so for 10 years, I thought I did this right. My wife’s not happy with me. My newspaper’s not happy with me. And I’m not happy with me. It was a mistake.’’ Marc Caputo can be reached at [email protected] MiamiHerald.com Discount Patio Furniture Sales and Service POLITICS Black caucus boss says Democratic Party ignores black voters ■ Does the Florida Democratic Party have a race problem on its hands? It could, says the head of the legislative black caucus. BY MARC CAPUTO Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE — The head of Florida’s black legislative caucus is complaining to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson that the mostly white Florida Democratic Party elite is ignoring African Americans and has all but crowned a new leader without their input. ‘‘We would urge you to recommend that the Party consider and select an African American candidate to assume the post of Party chair, which could potentially increase African American voter turnout and fundraising and would be historical for this State,’’ the caucus’ chairman, state Sen. Gary Siplin, wrote Nelson in a letter sent Thursday morning. But the letter was issued just as the only black candidate for party chairman, Andrew Gillum, threw his support to Rod Smith, the running mate in Alex Sink’s doomed bid for governor. With Gillum’s endorsement, Smith has garnered enough support to win party chairman next month. Nelson, who hasn’t responded to the letter and couldn’t be reached Friday, supports Smith. Siplin’s letter spells trouble for an already troubled Democratic Party. Despite a 600,000-voter edge, it lost every statewide election in November, leaving Nelson the only elected Democrat. The party also lost so many legislative seats that Republicans have vetoproof majorities in the House and Senate for the first time since Reconstruction. A major problem, Siplin said: Black voters weren’t inspired. The Sink-Smith t i c k e t e f fectively ran from President B a r a c k Obama, the first black U.S. presiNELSON dent. And the pair didn’t hire enough consultants with experience in getting black voters to the polls. Smith said he didn’t want to discuss Siplin’s letter ‘‘until I speak with him.’’ But Smith said Siplin is mistaken in believing black voters stayed home in disproportionate numbers. ‘‘African-American voters, compared to 2006, voted in bigger numbers,’’ Smith said. Siplin’s letter on behalf of the 24-member caucus urges the party to hire more black consultants, but he said he had no one in particular in mind. Siplin’s letter has a few peculiarities. The first draft addressed ‘‘Congress- man Nelson.’’ The second was written to ‘‘Senator Nelson.’’ It was also issued from a state Senate e-mail account by a state Senate employee who was engaging in partisan business.

BY KATHLEEN McGRORY k[email protected] Christopher Belle had a personality as big as the sound that came from his French horn. ‘‘Sometimes in pep band, he would start randomly dancing,’’ said Clinton Hobbs, 17. ‘‘I never saw him sad. He always wanted to make everyone around him happy.’’ On Nov. 19, Chris was struck by a car while walking to school in Northwest Miami-Dade. He died last Saturday from complications caused by the accident. He was 18. Chris attended Michael Krop Senior High near Aventura, where he was a member of the school’s award-winning symphony orchestra, wood ensemble and pep band. ‘‘I wish I had another 3,000 students like him,’’ principal Matthew Welker said. ‘‘He was a wellrounded, well-adjusted young man who believed in education and cherished the opportunity to be at this school.’’ Chris started playing music while at Highland Oaks Middle. His first instrument was the trumpet. But in the 10th grade, the band director at Krop needed someone to play the French horn, one of the most challenging classical instruments. Chris volunteered. ‘‘He didn’t always love the French horn,’’ said Clinton, who plays the trombone. ‘‘But he grew to love it. It became part of him.’’ LASTING IMPRESSION Last spring, Chris and his peers traveled to Indianapolis to participate in a national music festival. The experience had a lasting impression on Chris and cemented his passion for band. But even more than his aptitude for music, Chris was known around school for his sense of humor and his positive attitude. Bringle Cidel, the band and orchestra conductor at Krop, said Chris constantly volunteered to help raise funds and inventory the instruments. He was also eager to take younger students under his wing. ‘‘He was a very giving individual,’’ Cidel said. ‘‘His character was what impressed me more than anything.’’ Alec Kreisberg, 17, had known Chris since middle school. ‘‘If you were feeling down, he would ask you what was on your mind and talk you through it,’’ Alec said. In addition to music, Chris enjoyed studying science and wanted to become a pharmacist. He had just gotten accepted to his dream school: Florida A&M University. The band director was about to offer him a full scholarship, Cidel said. Chris had recently written on his Facebook wall: ‘‘College is coming and time is changing. Leaving mom, some friends, some family, everything I know. I’m going to miss everything I love. . . . So, let’s do what we gotta do and make all the work count.’’ his closest friends. ‘‘We ate dinner and played video games,’’ Ariana Rogers said. ‘‘It was a really nice get-together.’’ Three days later, Chris and his younger sister, Chrystallyn, began their walk to school. The two had a close relationship; Chrystallyn is a junior at Krop. Around 7 a.m., Chris was struck by a car while trying to cross Northwest Second Avenue. Chrystallyn was not injured. Students and teachers at Krop say they feel the loss. ‘‘The ensemble won’t be the same without him,’’ Clinton said. Members of the Krop community are now raising money to help Chris’ family. His parents have been struggling financially and cannot afford the funeral and burial costs. The orchestra will collect donations at a concert on Dec. 9. at 7 p.m. in the Krop Senior High Auditorium, 1410 County Line Rd.

The Broward County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on Donovan on Thursday, officials said, but the office has not released findings. Sun Sentinel A 17-year-old boy turned himself in to Plantation police on Friday to face charges in the shooting death of his best friend. Dakota Alan Donovan, 18, was visiting four other teenage friends at a home in the 5200 block of Southwest Third Street in Plantation on Wednesday night when a gun went off, kill- ‘NOT INTENTIONAL’ Plantation police arrested the 17-year-old on Friday and charged him with manslaughter. The Broward State Attorney’s Office will decide whether to charge the teen, who is also from Plantation, with manslaughter and will also determine whether he will be tried as an adult or as a juvenile. ‘‘He brought the firearm to the residence,’’ Plantation police detective Philip Toman said. ‘‘They were playing around with it and it went off. It was not intentional,’’ he said. The teen surrendered to police with his attorney Lawrence Wolk at 3 p.m. He is being held at a juvenile facility in Fort Lauderdale. Wolk said his client attends Broward College. ‘‘He has been very remorseful, crying all day and night, and slept with his parents last night,’’ Wolk said, calling the shooting an accident. TRAUMATIZED ‘‘This was his best friend. He has been traumatized by the situation,’’ he said. Wolk said the shooting interrupted dreams that the boys shared of having a joint business. ‘‘They were best buddies and wanted to start with their mothers some type of catering business for yachts that needed provisions, and they would deliver them to the port,’’ Wolk said.

LeMieux’s stance has become an issue in South Florida with several students, many from Miami Dade College, rallying in front of the senator’s Miami-Dade office urging him to change his mind. Padrón spoke during the conference call hosted by the White House and led by Commerce Secretary Gary Locke. Besides Locke and Padrón, others on the call included Carlos Campo, the president of Regent University at Virginia Beach, Va., and Gene Block, chancellor of UCLA. Asked during the call if he had a comment on LeMieux’s opposition to the DREAM Act, Padrón said: ‘‘I am still hopeful that Sen. LeMieux, after considering all the facts, will be able to see the light in this issue.’’ LeMieux has said he cannot embrace the DREAM Act because he believes that the federal government must first secure the border. ‘‘While I am sympathetic to the students passed away Dec 1, 2010.

BY SOFIA SANTANA Sun Sentinel For the first time in years, Broward and Palm Beach counties do not lead the state in fatal prescription drug overdoses. The counties still rank high, though, according to the state’s latest drug death statistics released this week by medical examiners and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The numbers cover deaths that happened in the first half of this year and show the St. Petersburg area as being Florida’s current hot spot for prescription drug overdose deaths. OXYCODONE The drugs proving to be most lethal locally are the painkiller oxycodone, the main ingredient in such drugs as Roxicodone and OxyContin, and the antianxiety medication alprazolam — better known by the brand name Xanax. Prescription drug overdoses are less of an issue in Miami-Dade County, where alprazolam was involved in 13 fatal overdoses the first half of this year. Oxycodone was involved in 10 such cases. In both categories, Broward and Palm Beach counties saw minimal change this year, compared with the same period last year. Oxycodone was linked to 77 fatal overdoses in Broward and 68 in Palm Beach County during the first six months of this year. That toll was surpassed only by the St. Petersburg area — covering Pinellas and Pasco counties — that logged 137 such overdoses. Alprazolam was involved in 61 fatal overdoses in Broward and 31 in Palm Beach County during the first six months of this year. The death toll in the St. Petersburg area was 80. COCAINE Broward and Palm Beach counties, do, however, lead the state in fatal overdoses involving cocaine. Broward logged 32; Palm Beach County 35. In recent years, Broward and Palm Beach counties have eclipsed Miami-Dade in fatal cocaine overdoses. MiamiDade reported 14, one of the lowest tallies in the state. The one category Miami-Dade does rank high in statewide is fatal overdoses involving heroin. The county had 5, second behind the Orlando metro area, which reported 7. Medical examiners said in the report that nearly all of the people killed by overdoses had taken several different drugs at once right before they died. Many of the cases involved prescription sleep medications, including temazepam (brand name Restoril), and zolpidem (brand name Ambien). Authorities began tracking the medications this year. The report shows that of the thousands of autopsies medical examiners statewide performed, popular sleep medications were detected in toxicology more than 400 times. About a fifth of those instances involved fatal overdoses. MIAMI Suge Knight appeals lawsuit being tossed Rap mogul Marion ‘‘Suge’’ Knight has appealed a judge’s decision to toss out a lawsuit that Knight filed against hiphop star Kanye West over a 2005 shooting in Miami Beach. Knight’s attorney, Mark Brumer, filed the appeal Friday in Miami federal court. The judge granted a summary judgment last month for West and his companies. The case was set to go to trial this month. Knight was seeking more than $1 million in damages from West. Knight was shot in the leg a t a 2005 Miami Beach party hosted by West, whom Knight blames for lax security. The shooter has never been identified. The judge concluded there was no evidence that a shooting at the party was foreseeable. West’s attorney, Adam Josephs, has previously called the suit ill-conceived.

BY KEVIN G. HALL [email protected] WASHINGTON — In a surprisingly weak report that conflicts with a host of other more upbeat recent economic data, the Labor Department reported Friday that the unemployment rate jumped to 9.8 percent in November as employers added only 39,000 jobs during the month. Viewed in isolation, the report might dash holiday cheer and raise new doubts about the strength of the economy’s recovery from the worst downturn in 70 years. But many analysts were skeptical that the Bureau of Labor Statistics survey was accurate in light of a stream of recent reports showing vitality reviving in retail and auto sales, consumer confidence, manufacturing and even private surveys of job creation. ‘‘This is a very disappointing report. I had expected the report would signal that the recovery was ready to take off. Instead it signals the recovery remains stuck on the tarmac,’’ said Mark Zandi, the chief economist for forecaster Moody’s Analytics in West Chester, Pa. ‘‘I’m a bit suspicious of it, however, given that it is inconsistent with the statistics that have been coming in during the past couple months.’’ The BLS said the jobless rate jumped to 9.8 percent after three straight months at 9.6 percent because more people entered the labor force last month and people who’d stopped looking for work resumed doing so. Mainstream forecasters had PERSONAL FINANCE expected hiring in November to be well north of 150,000, largely because other measures of employment were positive this week. The national numbers followed a disappointing report issued earlier in the month for South Florida. The state labor agency said Miami-Dade’s unemployment level climbed to 13 per• TURN TO JOBS, 4C ENTERTAINMENT Talent f irm for kids has tainted past TAXING TIMES AHEAD ■ Sure, the deadline’s still four months away, but getting your finances organized today can pay off handsomely later. ■ A talent firm that scouts South Florida malls has complaint histories in two states. BY NIRVI SHAH [email protected] BY MARCIA HEROUX POUNDS Looking for a great gift for yourself and your family? Start thinking about your 2010 tax returns and your overall tax picture right now, said Teri Kaye, principal in the tax services department at Daskal Bolton in Fort Lauderdale. ‘‘It may be one of the best gifts you can give,’’ said Kaye, a certified public accountant. While your mind may be on the mall, an upcoming experience with a security screener at the airport or a pending visit from the in-laws, Kaye said too few people are thinking about filing their taxes. But there is a lot you should be considering now to reduce what you might owe and to develop habits you can form that could pay off for years to come. Regardless of whether Congress addresses the tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year, start by figuring out whether your income is likely to be more or less in 2011, Kaye said. ‘‘The key thing is to understand what this year compared to next year is going to look like,’’ she said. ‘‘It may not turn out to be exactly what you thought, but you can make the best decisions with the information that you have.’’ JUGGLING DEDUCTIONS If your income will be more in 2011 than 2010, hold off on deductions that could be more beneficial next year, when your tax liability could be larger, Kaye said. Say you were unemployed part of this year — but now you have a job, and it’s likely one you’ll have through 2011. Pay your 2010 property taxes in January — and pay your 2011 taxes before Dec. 31, 2011. That’s called bunching your itemized deductions, Kaye said, ‘‘like a bunch of bananas.’’ You can do the same thing with donations to charity. Hold off until early next year, then donate again before 2011 ends. But if you’re expecting your income to drop next year, see if you can hold off on collecting your company bonus until 2011. Sun Sentinel CHIP BOK/AKRON BEACON JOURNAL If you turned 70μ this year and haven’t yet taken the required minimum distribution from your individual retirement account, take it before the end of the year so you don’t get saddled with paying taxes on two distributions taken in 2011. Arthur Barzilay, a financial advisor with Merrill Lynch in Coral Springs, suggested selling assets that may have appreciated this year and paying capital gains taxes on some of those investments this year. ‘‘Since we don’t know what’s going to happen, you can do this before a possibly higher [tax] rate goes into effect,’’ he said. Another idea: convert an IRA to a Roth IRA. You can spread the tax liability over two years, 2011 and 2012, if you convert before the end of 2011, said Cathy Pareto, a certified financial planner in Coral Gables. That gives you time to plan and save for paying those taxes. Or you can pay all the taxes on the sum in the account now. Future contributions to the account will be made after taxes — meaning you can draw down those funds when you retire tax free. InterFACE, a company that bills itself as a talent marketing firm, is chatting up parents and children at malls in Sunrise and Boca Raton as it opens operations in South Florida. For parents who think their child has ‘‘the look’’ to be a model or in a TV or movie production, the firm’s offer of a talent evaluation may be hard to resist. But Florida parents may be unaware that InterFACE has an ‘‘F’’ or ‘‘unsatisfactory’’ rating with the Better Business Bureaus in New Jersey and Connecticut. Parents have filed complaints about the firm’s high-pressure sales tactics, contracts, and refund policies. The owners of InterFACE, which is based in New Jersey, say they’ve resolved most complaints and supplied examples of satisfied customers. Company reps from InterFACE typically work out of malls, where many parents and children spend time. ‘‘Do you have any young children?’’ an InterFACE sales rep asks this reporter as she walks up to the company’s display in Town Center at Boca Raton. Some families are invited to come to InterFACE’s office for more information and to schedule a photo shoot. InterFACE’s photo shoot costs $550 to $1,500, according to the company’s owners. For another $350 for three months or up to $2,300 for four years, the firm posts photos of aspiring models, actors and singers on its online system accessible to agents and casting directors. ‘‘We charge them for things they may need anyway: composites, makeup, stylist,’’ said Roman Vintfeld, co-owner of InterFACE with his wife Danielle, in a recent interview. If the photos are posted online, customers can print headshots or composite cards, which show a variety of a model’s looks. ‘‘We simplify it for them, and get them out as professionals,’’ he said. InterFACE recently opened an office in Boca Raton, and announced it would be hiring at least 50 sales reps and other • TURN TO TAXES, 4C • TURN TO INTERFACE, 4C REAL ESTATE Heat star signs $10.65 million deal in Miami Beach ■ Dwyane Wade’s new home on North Bay Road – bought sight unseen – is just a few doors down from fellow Miami Heat player Chris Bosh’s new digs. BY NIRVI SHAH [email protected] Dwyane Wade has scored a 13,000-square-foot home in Miami Beach, his realty company said Friday. Real estate agent Gloria Salom of Beachfront Realty said the Miami Heat guard signed a contract for the $10.65 million house sight unseen and closed on the property Monday. ‘‘He closed blindly,’’ Salom said. ‘‘My life was on the line there.’’ The months-long search for a home ended in the purchase of a property that wasn’t on the market, Salom said. She and Wade visited more than 50 homes together and she scouted dozens more on her own, including the house he ended up with on North Bay Road that was previously owned by insurance executive Mel Harris. Wade was in the market after selling his Pinecrest home earlier this year. His new place is just a few doors down from fellow Heat player Chris Bosh’s new digs, Salom said. Bosh closed on a $12.5 million, 12,000-square-foot house in September. It’s also on the street that Matt Damon calls home. Wade’s new home features tennis courts he plans to convert to a basketball court and other athletic facilities. Overlooking the courts is a spectator cabana with a wet bar. There’s also a guest house, an air conditioned dog house, boatlift and pool.

Most estate-planning lawyers are happy to continue working with their clients, but we understand that clients may want to make a change for any reason. BY CLAUDIA BUCK McClatchy News Service From finding a trust lawyer to handling a parent’s estate, Amy Halloran, a California estate-planning attorney, answers these questions as one of our online ‘‘Ask the Experts’’ contributors. BY TOM HUDSON Nightly Business Report In Florida, it’s 106,000 people. In Texas, 85,000. It’s almost a half million people in California. In all, an estimated two million Americans face the new week without any unemployment check from the government. And until Congress acts, hundreds of thousands more will drop out of the unemployment insurance system each week. The fight HUDSON over extending unemployment payments to the long-term unemployed has become one of the flash points over government spending. It would cost about $56 billion for Uncle Sam to keep writing these checks for another year. Democrats want to borrow that money. Republicans want to take that money from other spending programs. Fifty six billion dollars is a lot of money. But out of the $3 trillion federal budget, this fight is more about principle than the government’s pocketbook. After all, this is like an average American household fighting over $900 a year. No one gets rich sitting on the couch, collecting unemployment checks. The millions of Americans cashing these checks aren’t taking the money and saving it. They’re spending it on food and homes. But it’s not like the U.S. suddenly can’t borrow any money either to help out the unemployed. Borrowing costs for the U.S. Treasury are at the lowest they’ve been in two generations. While studies have found the unemployed tend work harder looking for work when benefits are coming to an end, the government also needs to work harder to create the environment for those jobs to be created.

THE COLOR OF MONEY Q: What is the best way to locate a reputable estate attorney in your community? It would be great if there was a database with a significant volume of meaningful reviews by clients and experts. A: I’m not sure there is a ‘‘best’’ way to locate an estate-planning attorney, but there are several resources to help your search. Start with your state’s bar association; some maintain websites with lists of attorneys. Another option is Martindale-Hubbell, an online company that provides a directory of lawyers and law firms by practice and geographical area, along with ratings by clients and other lawyers. Its website is Martindale.com. Another source is your local county bar association, which may have a referral service by attorney and practice areas. There are also fee-based referral services, but be sure to research how the lawyers are chosen for the referral list. (Sometimes lawyers will pay to be included.) Ultimately, I think you can learn about the best estate-planning lawyers by word of mouth. Talk to friends, neighbors and col- DALLAS MORNING NEWS leagues. Once you have some names — from any source — talk to each attorney by phone or schedule a brief meeting in person. It’s important that you feel comfortable sharing personal information with your estate-planning attorney so he or she can create the optimal estate plan for your circumstances. Q: The attorney who prepared our estate-planning documents has changed her affiliation with a major law firm. If we need amendments, do we return to the attorney’s original firm or approach her at the new firm? A: It is completely your Q: My mother has a trust and has told me many times that I am head of the trust over my brother. Do I have a right to a copy of the trust and a listing of all her assets? A: I assume your mother has a revocable trust, meaning she can make any changes she wishes during her lifetime. I also assume she is the sole current trustee and beneficiary. In that situation, generally no one else is entitled to know the business of the trust. But if your mother becomes incapacitated or upon her death, the successor trustee will need to step in and manage the trust assets. At that time, if you were named the successor trustee, you would be entitled to a copy of the trust as well as access to the trust’s assets.

My recommendations: • Shortchanged: Why Women Have Less Wealth and What Can Be Done About It by Mariko Lin Chang (Oxford University Press, $24.95). The wealth gap between men and women still matters because about half of all households are headed by single people SINGLETARY (never married, widowed or divorced). ‘‘My intention in this book is to shift the dialogue about women’s economic future toward one that includes the importance of building wealth,’’ writes Chang, a former associate professor of sociology at Harvard University. • I Found a Job: Career Advice from Job Hunters Who Landed on Their Feet by Marcia Heroux Pounds (Jist Works, $12.95). The stories and advice from people who have lost and found jobs in this gut-wrenchingly awful economy make this book interesting. • The Cheapskate Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of Americans Living Happily Below Their Means by Jeff Yeager (Broadway Books, $12.99). Whenever I think I’m the cheapest person around, I remind myself I’m a spendthrift compared to the affable Yeager, who is not ashamed to admit he sometimes boils his eggs in the dishwasher (bottom shelf for firm eggs). In this book, Yeager interviews other likeminded penny pinchers and shares the common characteristics that help them lead great lives on the cheap. • Mimi, Money and Me: 101 Realities About Money Daddy Never Taught Me But Mama Always Knew by Patricia A. Davis (Davis Financial Services, $19.99). This self-published book is a sweet testimony to the author’s mother, Beatrice Staunton, who had to raise the last three of her five children alone after her husband died in 1960. I met Staunton and her daughter Patricia when they came to a reception I gave nine years ago for my annual Penny Pincher of the Year contest. Davis channels her mother’s common-sense approach about money by putting together a basic book that includes solid tips on budgeting, banking, credit, insurance and estate planning. • Money Management: From Grade School to Grad School by Ernest Burley (Vital Visions Publishing, $15). Burley, a Maryland-based certified financial planner, has written a guide for parents to teach their children about money. And when should the lessons start? ‘‘I recommend parents start teaching their children about money as soon as their children start asking them to buy things for them,’’ Burley says. • Perfect Credit: 7 Steps to a Great Credit Rating by Lynnette Khalfani-Cox (Advantage World Press, $14.95). This is a road map to keeping or getting good credit scores from someone who has been in the credit dumps. • Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties by Beth Kobliner (Fireside, $16). Be sure you get the latest edition updated last year. This is a wonderful money blueprint for the younger set. • Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez with Monique Tilford (Penguin, $16). This book was first published in 1992. Although it’s been updated, the message — that many people need to examine their financial life and ask whether what they are doing with their money is making them truly happy — remains relevant no matter the economic times. I know a financial book may not top many people’s holiday gift list, but the information they’ll hopefully absorb will last a lot longer than just any other present they’ll receive.

The principal of a Miami import company must spend time in federal prison for her role in receiving, selling and transporting misbranded cheese from Nicaragua that was found to contain bacteria. Francisca Josefina Lopez, 40, will serve a reduced sentence of 45 days in prison plus house arrest and five years of probation. Her partner at Lacteos Company, Jorge Alexis Ochoa-Lopez, 35, was sentenced to six months in prison and two years of probation in November. According to court records, Lopez imported 440 boxes of ‘‘Morlique Cheese’’ worth $81,400 from Nicaragua in March. The Food & Drug Administration put a hold on the product’s entry in the United States pending an inspection. Samples of the cheese contained staph bacteria. But by then, the pair had already sold the cheese. Staph infections can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, headache and muscle cramping. — NIRVI SHAH • Web pioneer to leave firm: A pioneer in the domain-name industry in South Florida, Monte Cahn, has stepped down as president of Moniker.com and Snapnames.com, parent company Oversee.net announced.

BY GABRIELE STEINHAUSER Associated Press BRUSSELS — Europe and the euro will never be the same. The debt crisis is forcing governments to rewrite some of the eurozone’s most fundamental rules. While some see the current turmoil as the slow-motion wreckage of the common currency bloc, others maintain Europe will have the political resolve to keep it together and even bring it closer together. Either way, one thing is clear: Thanks to new debt and bailout rules being agreed among the 16 eurozone nations, Europe’s monetary union will be forever altered, even if it survives the crisis. On Monday and Tuesday, European finance ministers will work on fleshing out a so-called European Stability Mechanism. The new rules will effectively rearrange the eurozone’s power structure to protect stronger economies like Germany from paying for the profligacy of ‘‘peripheral’’ countries like Greece or Portugal, threatening to create a two-tier Europe. But the prospect of such a growing divide, unexpectedly, raises the question of closer fiscal union — money flowing from rich countries to weaker ones — even though there is huge political resistance to such a scenario. ‘‘The debt crisis is uncovering deeper problems within Europe, calling into question the EU’s future development,’’ Monument Securities analyst Stephen Lewis wrote in a note this week. ‘‘Without political union of eurozone member states, the hopelessness of the euro’s situation is likely to appear over- VIRGINIA MAYO/AP SETTING THE RULES: European Commissioner for Economy Olli Rehn, Belgian Finance Minister Didier Reynders, Luxembourg’s Finance Minister Jean Claude Juncker and President of the European Central Bank Jean Claude Trichet were part of last month’s round table meeting of EU finance ministers in Brussels. whelming. The search is on for the magic bullet that will cure the euro’s malaise,’’ Lewis said. At the heart of the stability mechanism — chiefly sought by Germany, Europe’s paymaster — is forcing investors to take part of the losses in debt crises. Bondholders — including banks and hedge funds — were protected in both the bailouts of Greece and Ireland. Now, politicians say that from 2013 they will have to become liable for the risks they agree to take as part of their profession. The most direct consequence, however, has been that investors are asking for higher premiums on fiscally weak governments’ debt. That in turn risks pulling Europe in two different directions — that of economically strong countries who will keep paying low borrowing rates and those who will pay more because of the perceived risk surrounding their debt. Greece, Ireland, Portugal and even Spain and Italy have to spend more money to refinance their debt, burning up cash that could otherwise have built schools, roads and hospitals and boosted growth and jobs.

Germany argues that the higher interest rates will push these countries to be more disciplined in their spending to regain investor confidence. For the moment, however, they seem to be doing the opposite. Ratings agency Standard & Poor’s warned on Thursday it may downgrade Greece’s long-term debt — adding pressure on already weakened public finances — if the new bailout rules prove too harsh on private bond holders. Whatever finance ministers eventually make of the new stability mechanism, the debt crisis has already called into doubt the assumptions underpinning Europe’s monetary union. Until last year, the eurozone stuck to two seemingly contradictory mantras: No government could ever default, and no country could ever be bailed out. The no-bailout idea fell in May, when Greece received 110 billion in rescue loans. The no-default premise was stamped with a 2013 expiration date last Sunday, when European Union finance ministers agreed to force losses on private creditors if a country’s debt pile is deemed too big to bear. But a growing number of experts believe the region’s problems require much bolder action, in spite of firm opposition from some nations and the European Central Bank. When they sketched an initial agreement on the new European Stability Mechanism on Sunday — just as they cleared a 65 billion-euro bailout for Ireland — EU finance ministers hoped to keep the debt crisis from taking down Portugal, Spain, or even Italy. Agreement on the bailout and a crisis mechanism failed to stop the sell-off in vulnerable government bonds. Markets only stabilized after ECB chief JeanClaude Trichet indicated the central bank would extend its emergency lending to banks and would continue its purchases of government bonds. But interest rates on sovereign debt remain too high for heavily indebted governments to sustain over the longer term. Many economists argue that the debt loads of Greece, Ireland and Portugal are already unsustainable, since the harsh austerity measures they have been forced to take are killing off desperately needed economic growth. One solution might be to restructure those countries’ debts now and allow them to get their economies in order under humane circumstances, said Simon Tilford, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform, a London-based thing tank. Such a simultaneous shock-and-awe move, Tilford said, might stop contagion and take pressure of Italy and Spain. ‘‘By going halfway, you’re making everything worse,’’ said Tilford. TECHNOLOGY BY JOE MANDAK Pe- Stk of payriod rate record able been cooperating with Picard in his investigation of the scheme that cost thousands of investors their retirement nest eggs, devastated charities and shook the foundation of the financial world. While Madoff reported roughly $65 billion on his books, the actual loss to investors is estimated at about $20 billion. The suit is one of dozens Picard has filed recently. On Nov. 24, he filed a $2 billion lawsuit against UBS AG, a Swiss wealth management company, claiming it helped Madoff perpetuate the fraud. Last Friday, he filed 40 lawsuits, including ones against Madoff’s sister, nephew and in-laws, seeking $69 million of what he claimed were ill-gotten gains. By law, he has two years to file such complaints. The deadline is Dec. 11. EUROPE accept $1 – and an apology – after Google acknowledged its Street View service trespassed. DIVIDENDS In the months before Madoff’s Dec. 11, 2008, arrest, JPMorgan withdrew $250 million it had invested in Madoff-related securities. After Madoff admitted his decades-long operation was a scam, JP Morgan officials said it withdrew its funds for various reasons, including that it became concerned about Madoff’s operation. However, bank officials vehemently denied Picard’s charges. ‘‘Contrary to the trustee’s allegations, JPMorgan did not know about or in any way assist in the fraud orchestrated by Bernard Madoff,’’ spokeswoman Jennifer Zuccarelli said in a statement. ‘‘Any suggestion that JPMorgan supported Madoff’s fraud is utterly baseless and demonstrably false.’’ Further, she said, JPMorgan has Google has acknowledged that it trespassed when it took a photo of a Pittsburgh-area house for its Street View service, but will pay only $1 in damages to a couple who sued. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Cathy Bissoon on Thursday signed off on a consent judgment, a mutually agreed-upon verdict, between the Mountain View, Calif., company and Aaron and Christine Boring, of Franklin Park, Pa. A Google spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which first reported the parties had agreed to the judgment, that the settlement is limited to the Borings. ‘‘We are pleased that this lawsuit has finally ended with plaintiffs’ acknowledgment that they are entitled to only $1,’’ Google said in a statement, adding that its ability to continue Street View is unaffected. The Borings’ attorney, Gregg Zegarelli, said his clients are satisfied to have made the point that Google trespassed and realize they ‘‘can’t control a company such as Google that operates worldwide.’’ The Borings said in a statement released by Zegarelli that the amount of the judgment isn’t the issue. ‘‘This is one sweet dollar of vindication,’’ the statement said. ‘‘Google could have just sent us an apology letter in the very beginning, but chose to try to prove they had a legal right to be on our land. We are glad they finally gave up.’’ ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HA1C_031204 System MIAE by KSCOTT MAGENTA Time 18:39:07 Date 12/03/10 Story # 0 Story name HA1C_031204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user KSCOTT C , 3, A1 , Keyword: YELLOW BLACK |HA1C_041204Kv~ 4C |HA1C_041204C£~ BLACK SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 |HA1C_041204M ~ CYAN MAGENTA FROM THE FRONT PAGE A1 |HA1C_041204YP~ MiamiHerald.com/Business YELLOW THE MIAMI HERALD PERSONAL FINANCE Estate taxes could be a more common headache BY NIRVI SHAH [email protected] To the surprise of many financial advisors, Congress hasn’t tackled estate taxes for most of the year. The families of those who died this year who might have had to surrender staggering sums to the government in the past escaped those payments this year. But if Congress doesn’t act, estate taxes will affect far more people when the calendar flips to 2011, said David Kron, estate tax expert and partner at Ruden McClosky in Fort Lauderdale. Instead of a 45 percent tax rate on assets beyond a $3.5 million exemption — the way estate taxes stood in 2009 — next year’s tax rate jumps to 55 percent and the exemption drops to $1 million, he said. The exemptions double for married couples — there was a $7 million exemption in the past and there would be a $2 million exemption in the future. ‘‘This is a disaster for many, many more individuals,’’ Kron said. In 2009, he said, there were fewer than 15,000 estate tax returns filed, and of those, only 5,500 required a payment of taxes. Those few returns raised $13.8 billion for the federal government, he said. ‘‘These were very wealthy people.’’ If the estate tax laws aren’t changed, it is estimated that next year, 108,000 estate tax returns will be filed and 44,000 of those will come with a tax liability worth $34 billion. ‘‘The additional $21 billion of increased tax, that’s going to be borne by people with estates of $1 million to $3.5 million,’’ he said. ‘‘All of that extra tax money is coming from far less wealthy people.’’ Families with a home that has appreciated to $500,000 are halfway to the $1 million mark. People with $1 million term life insurance policy could be affected. Those with small, family-owned business are likely to be snared as well. While it isn’t essential to have an estate plan reflecting the 2011 laws in place by midnight on Dec. 31, it’s never too soon to plan for this possibility either, Kron said. ‘‘We don’t know what Congress is going to do — raise the exemption or lower the tax rate,’’ he said. ‘‘The inaction over the past year speaks volumes.’’ Some ideas: • Consider buying life insurance and putting it into an irrevocable life insurance trust, which removes it from your taxable estate. If you move an existing policy into such a trust, you must live at least three years from then for it to be taken out of your estate. But the trust can buy a policy and there is no three-year requirement, he said. • Give while you live. The gift tax — which kicks in on gifts of $13,000 or larger from an individual to an individual, is 35 per- cent. But next year’s estate tax is at a rate of 55 percent. With a gift you lose control of the money, which may not be palat- able, but if it is invested by the recipient, it grows outside of your estate and wouldn’t be taxed at your death. Plan a little now to save a lot later • TAXES, FROM 1C Otherwise, you can contribute to your IRA, or Roth IRA, through April 15, 2011, for 2010 tax purposes. CLAIM THOSE CREDITS No matter what happens with your income, there are some credits you’ll want to consider claiming — because they expire this year. The Making Work Pay credit should have shown up in your pay check. But if it didn’t, it’s worth $400 for singles and $800 for married couples — even if only one person in the household is working, said Elaine Smith, an enrolled agent with H&R Block. ‘‘If it’s new to you, go back and amend last year’s tax return and get it,’’ she said. Tax credits for improving the energy efficiency of your home also end Dec. 31. They are worth up to 30 percent of the price of qualified doors, windows, air conditioners and insulation, among other items, she said. If you bought a home and qualify for the first-time homebuyer tax credit, worth up to $8,000, you don’t have to wait until you file your 2010 returns to claim it, she said. You can amend your 2009 returns instead. If you don’t itemize your deduc- tions, but do take a deduction for your property taxes, this will be the last year you can do so, Pareto said. A credit worth up to $250 for teachers who pay for supplies expires this year, too, along with a $4,000 credit for qualified tuition expenses and fees. Maximize contributions to your company’s 401(k) plan, which reduces your taxable income, Smith said. This is also the last year taxpayers will have the ability to deduct what they paid in sales taxes from their income tax liability, Pareto said. ANOTHER UNKNOWN While Congress may not get around to addressing expiring tax cuts, there’s another issue they haven’t addressed either: the alternative minimum tax. The alternative minimum tax was originally created for the wealthy, who might have escaped paying taxes because of a large number of deductions. Now, it affects many people who are middle class. In Florida, Smith said, 1.4 million taxpayers could be affected if Congress does not ‘‘patch’’ the AMT before the end of the year. Using online calculators, includ- ing one at IRS.gov, can help you estimate whether you will have to pay the AMT. ‘‘Get an estimate. Be prepared,’’ she said, and if necessary, start saving to pay the tax. ‘‘Then ask at tax time whether it got passed or didn’t or if it was changed and to what.’’ LOOK FORWARD, AND BACK While much of the planning you should do now involves your 2010 tax returns and beyond, Kaye said it’s important to reflect on past tax years, too. For example, if you lost $50,000 in the stock market in 2008, you could have only claimed $3,000 of that on your 2008 returns. But you can keep claiming up to $3,000 in losses each year until you hit the amount of your losses, she said. And those losses may be critical to recoup this year, as the stock market rebounded, to counteract some of your gains. ‘‘This is also a great time of year to get a second opinion on the tax return that was filed,’’ Kaye said, which could result in a refund larger than what you got, or a smaller tax liability. ‘‘If you find somebody that’s knowledgeable and paying attention, the fees are going to be less than the additional tax you pay.’’ ECONOMY Disappointing jobs report surprises analysts • JOBS, FROM 1C cent and Broward’s remained in double-digits at 10.1 percent. On Thursday, the four-week average for first-time jobless claims fell to 431,000, the lowest it had been since September 2008. The ADP National Employment Report, which measures payroll data, showed Wednesday that 93,000 new private-sector jobs were created in November, 54,000 of them in small businesses, which national surveys often overlook. The National Federation of Independent Business, which represents small employers, released its monthly survey of members Friday, confirming that positive trend. For the first time in 30 months, its members reported an increase in hiring, albeit only one-tenth of a percentage point. ‘‘Bottom line, job creation was positive. Retail sales and income growth in October and November were strong, promising an even better fourth quarter economy. Bottom line, this means more customers and a reason to hire or rehire work- KEVORK DJANSEZIAN/GETTY IMAGES STILL LOOKING: Job seekers lined up this week for a career fair at the Los Angeles Convention Center. ers,’’ Bill Dunkelberg, the group’s chief economist, wrote in a note. Victoria Villalba, owner of a temporary-staffing firm in Doral, said she’s seen mostly positive news during the last 90 days. South Florida employers want more temporary workers — typically a prelude to compa- nies beefing up their staffs permanently. ‘‘On the temporary side, it’s definitely picking up,’’ said Villalba, president of Victoria and Associates. ‘‘In fact, we got a call maybe 10 minutes ago from a company saying this temporary employee you have here, we’d like to make permanent. We get so excited when we hear that.’’ Among the few positives Friday, the broad category of professional and business services showed growth of 53,000 jobs. Temporary employment showed nearly 40,000 new jobs. Temporary hiring is a double-edged sword. Temp hires traditionally reflect employers testing the waters before offering full-time jobs with benefits. Some economists fear, however, that employers are relying more on temp hires, who don’t get benefits such as healthcare. Friday’s poor numbers were even more striking when measured against a BLS revision that showed employers had added 172,000 jobs in October, not the 151,000 first reported last month. September and October reports were revised upward by a combined 38,000 new jobs. Earlier this week, a Federal Reserve survey of regional U.S. economies concluded that ‘‘the economy continued to improve, on balance,’’ from early October to mid-November. Investors shrugged off the November jobs report. The Dow Jones industrial average added more than 350 points earlier in the week. Still, there was little to cheer in the jobs report. ‘‘We cannot sugarcoat the fact that this is a disappointing employment report. It is still consistent with continued economic recovery and it is out of line with other employment indicators, but there is no sign of the acceleration in growth that we have seen in other reports thus far in the quarter,’’ forecaster RDQ Economics said in a note to investors. Other analysts were more sanguine. ‘‘We continue to anticipate gradual improvement in the pace of job growth, with the unemployment rate beginning a sustained, if gradual, downtrend by the end of the first quarter of 2011,’’ Alan Levenson, the chief economist for the fixed-income division of investment firm T. Rowe Price, said in a note to investors. Miami Herald business writer Douglas Hanks contributed to this report. ENTERTAINMENT Talent f irm says it has resolved most complaints • INTERFACE, FROM 1C employees in South Florida. In August, InterFACE opened a kiosk at Boca Raton’s Town Center and then in September at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise. The Vintfelds say they plan to market their firm ‘‘wherever families are’’ in South Florida to locate talent for agents and casting directors. There are no complaints against InterFACE with Southeast Florida’s Better Business Bureau, but New Jersey and Connecticut BBBs continue to rate the firm an ‘‘F.’’ CHANGED POLICIES The Vintfelds said they have changed their refund policies. ‘‘We do not pressure anybody to do anything,’’ said Roman Vintfeld, who began as a concert promoter before getting into talent marketing. Consumers who are not satisfied ‘‘can get their money repaid in full,’’ he said. ‘‘We’ve actually resolved every single complaint that we’ve had,’’ Danielle Vintfeld said. The BBB complaints are ‘‘a fraction of 1 percent of the customers that walk into our doors each year,’’ she said. ‘‘We’re in an industry where everybody is not going to be happy.’’ The Florida operation is too new in the area to have regular clients, but the company provided parents in New Jersey who say they are satisfied with the firm. Nancy Paffendorf, of Hackettstown, N. J., took her daughter Devon to InterFACE when she was 15. Now 20, Devon has been in TV productions, including Gossip Girl, Ugly Betty, and The Good Wife, and in movies, including Notorious, Twelve and Death in Love. ‘‘It was through their efforts she was able to make the connections that she did,’’ Paffendorf said. Helen Acevedo’s 13-year-old son Joseph Bishop was spotted by an InterFACE scout in a New Jersey mall this July. Acevedo said she was skeptical at first so she bought a limited online package. She’s encouraged now that her son has been called for three jobs, including a webbased advertising campaign. ‘‘He loves it. I don’t think he ever wants to give it up now,’’ she said. InterFACE’s sales reps at Town Center tell potential customers that the firm’s success rate is 80 percent, with success defined as ‘‘one professional contact,’’ they say. Vintfeld said the sales rep’s explanation is correct, adding that his firm is not a talent agency; it is a marketing firm. ‘‘It’s about getting requested by an agent or a manager,’’ he said. ‘‘We have hundreds and thousands of models in movies and magazines. We have not yet had somebody who is a household name, but people who have been on billboards in Times Square, and one in Billy Elliott on Broadway.’’ Natasha Matallana, a booking agent with Talent 3 Talent Agency in Manhattan, said she doesn’t look at the firm’s online site, but InterFACE often sends her photos of its clients. Out of 50 children sent, maybe five will be signed by an agent for a job, she said. ‘‘It’s a great way for us to find talent without having to search ourselves,’’ Matallana said. COMPLAINTS New Jersey’s BBB processed a total of 230 complaints about the company in the last 36 months. The company resolved 171 complaints and closed 56 that could not be settled; three remain unresolved, according to the BBB. Some of the complaints focus on a contract clause saying once the photo shoot is scheduled it cannot be canceled, ‘‘but this fact is not made clear during the meeting,’’ the BBB states. In Connecticut, the BBB has recorded 164 complaints filed against the business in the past 36 months — 50 of which it reported as particularly ‘‘serious.’’ The BBB says 131 complaints were resolved and 33 couldn’t be settled. Urging the company to change its refund policy, the Connecticut BBB in 2008 issued an alert to consumers about InterFACE’s pattern of complaints. ‘‘Parents who have gone to the appointments with their children have complained to BBB about high pressure sales tactics, and that the sales representatives of InterFACE misrepresent the company’s products, services and fees,’’ according to the BBB’s press release about the alert. Some parents complained they were never told about additional fees for composite cards and posting on the company’s website. When some parents complained, InterFACE ‘‘arbitrarily dropped the price to accommodate the consumers and secure an on-the-spot deposit,’’ the press release said. When some Connecticut parents tried to cancel the contract, they were told written cancellation was required by certified mail within a specific time period that parents said was impossible to meet. REFUNDS In 2009, Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection obtained nearly $22,000 in refunds for 18 Connecticut families and demanded changes in InterFACE’s cancellation policies. Commissioner Jerry Farrell Jr., said in a statement at the time that ‘‘it was particularly concerning to hear reports that InterFACE solicited information from children without their parent or guardian’s permission. Information should never be solicited from children b y a business without a parent or guardian being involved or giving consent.’’ Roman Vintfeld agreed in 2009 to voluntarily comply with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection’s request by providing a three-day cancellation policy to consumers and to solicit personal information only from parents, not minors.

C~ MAGENTA MiamiHerald.com/Sports A1 YELLOW THE MIAMI HERALD COLLEGES NOTEBOOK Like father, like daughter at Broward College ‘‘foreign’’ to the idea of having a woman serve as a men’s coach, but they adjusted quickly. ‘‘When we are on the floor, I have no problem yelling at them,’’ Alison said. ‘‘They call me Coach, and they come to me with questions.’’ Alison said she can see herself becoming a head coach someday, whether it’s in a men’s or women’s program. Her father, who employs George Bianchi as his top assistant, said Alison has the respect of the players. ‘‘They don’t give her a hard time,’’ Starkman said. ‘‘These are all tough kids, but you should see how soft they are with her. They all melt.’’ BY WALTER VILLA Miami Herald Writer Broward College men’s basketball coach Bob Starkman drives home every day with an assistant coach — his daughter, Alison. ‘‘I haven’t fired her yet,’’ joked Starkman, whose team is off to a 7-3 start. Alison, a 6-0 forward in her playing days, starred at Taravella High and at Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina before becoming a coach this year. She works with Broward’s big men, including 7-0 center A.J. Matthews, who is first among state junior colleges in rebounds (10.2 average), fourth in points (19.4) and sixth in blocks (2.1). Alison, 24, said Matthews and UM his teammates were initially Guard Shenise Johnson said recently that ‘‘polls don’t matter’’ in response to the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches picking the Canes to finish eighth in the league. The Canes (6-1, with the loss coming at No. 24 Nebraska) will get a major test Tuesday when No. 12 Georgetown visits. Last week, the Hoyas beat Tennessee, which was ranked fourth. FIU The softball team signed five recruits, including Lindsey Menezes of Westminster Christian; former American Heritage star Rebekah Kiser; Tampa’s Reina Balujah; Jacksonville’s Abigail Tewey; and California’s Shelby Graves. The players combined to win five state titles the past two years. ST. THOMAS The men’s soccer team finished its season 12-6-2 — but not before a nearly miraculous comeback. Maine Fort Kent was undefeated at 21-0, ranked fifth in the nation and led 3-0. MFK was also at home with steady snow flurries falling. But even with all the obstacles, St. Thomas rallied before falling 3-2 in the NAIA round-of-32 playoffs. NOVA Senior Agustin Rey, who finished sixth at regionals, will compete Saturday in the NCAA Cross-Country National Championships at Louisville, Ky. MIAMI DADE Two women’s basketball players have earned college scholarships: 6-0 forward Ashley Wilkes at Canisius, and 5-11 wing Kandis Frederick at Lynn. Wilkes is first in the state in rebounds (11.7) and sixth in scoring (16.5). BARRY Women’s volleyball standout Julie Teixeira was named to the Division II AVCA All-American team. She is the 14th Barry player to earn the honor and the first since 2008. In men’s basketball, forward Willie Whitfield was named the Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week after averaging 18.7 points, 13.3 rebounds and 3 blocks.

BY JIM FREER Miami Herald Writer Fans who look at Saturday’s entries for Calder’s two stakes races will find the names of Bill Mott, Patrick Biancone and several other prominent trainers who have shipped horses down from tracks in Northern states. That is a sign that the primetime winter racing season has arrived in South Florida, starting with the Tropical Turf Handicap (Grade 3) and the My Charmer Handicap (Grade 3). The two stakes have $100,000 purses and are at 1∞ miles on turf. The Tropical Turf is for males 3 years old and up, and the My Charmer is for fillies and mares 3 years old and up. Both have 16 entrants, including four also-eligibles. That virtually assures maximum fields of 12, with prospects of big payoffs on exactas and other bets. Several horses that have won stakes at Calder this year will face those that recently arrived for racing at Calder and later at Gulfstream Park, which will open Jan. 5. Never On Sunday, trained by Biancone, and Midnight Mischief, trained by Mott, are among probable favorites in the Tropical Turf. The 5-year-old Never On Sunday began his career in France, where he won a Group 1 race at 1∞ miles on turf in 2009. Never On Sunday finished third in his U.S. debut Feb. 6 in the 1∞-mile Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap (Grade 1).

HIALEAH OPENS One Tough Dude won the Bienvenido de Nuevo Stakes on Friday, before an opening-day crowd of 1,934 for quarter-horse racing at Hialeah Park. One Tough Dude, the even- money favorite, beat Corona Con Lima, at 19-1, by a neck in the 300-yard stakes. The winning time was 15.27 seconds. Francisco Ramirez rode One Tough Dude, who is trained by Alonso Orozco. Hialeah opened its first quarter-horse meet on Nov. 28, 2009, with an overflow crowd of 26,874. That was the track’s first horse racing since May 22, 2001, when it ended its most recent thoroughbred season. Track owner and chairman John Brunetti said Friday’s attendance ‘‘was about what we might expect because it was a weekday and a soft opening compared with last year.’’ Wagering numbers for Friday were not readily available. Hialeah will have eight races Saturday, with a first post time of 12:35 p.m. TROPICAL AT CALDER RACE COURSE CHARTS DEC. 3 FIRST Purse: $16,000; 1 Mile; Maiden Claiming $25,000; Off at: 12:26; 3-5 yo Maidens, Fillies, & Mares; Times: :23.74, :48.63, 1:15.52, 1:43.16; Start: Good For All But Reba’s Affair; Track: Fast; Won: Driving; Winner by: Full Mandate – Bring Me Luck, by Pentelicus; Winning Trainer: Steven Dwoskin; Owner: Anna Pincus & Steven Dwoskin.

A 2004 Olympic silver medalist from his native Cuba, Jhonson was the busier fighter in the sixround junior-middleweight bout, which headlined an eight-fight show at Magic City Casino. Jhonson secured the victory when he dropped De Los Santos (4-7-3) with a left to the head in the sixth round for the fight’s only knockdown. All three judges scored the fight 60-53 for Jhonson. Jhonson is 9-0 since turning professional in 2009. Yordanis Despaigne, Jhonson’s countryman and 2004 Olympic teammate, also fought on Friday’s show. Despaigne won a unanimous decision over Juan Jose Ruiz. Despaigne (8-0) landed at will against a shorter but battle-tested Ruiz in their cruiserweight bout. Early in the fight, Despaigne was effective with left-right combinations to the head and right uppercuts. After establishing his power punches, Despaigne also connected with left jabs to the head. A game Ruiz (6-7) withstood the best of Despaigne’s shots but only connected sporadic and lightly affecting combinations to the head. All three judges scored the fight 60-54 for Despaigne. Earlier, heavyweight Glendy Hernandez earned his first victory by knockout by stopping stoppage Fort Lauderdale resident Jayce Monroe in the third round. A native of Cuba, Hernandez (3-0) found his opening in the third and dropped Monroe with a right to the head. Monroe, who had absorbed solid overhand shots from Hernandez in the first two rounds, could not beat referee Frank Gentile’s 10count, ending the bout 51 seconds into the round. ‘‘He was difficult to figure out the first couple of rounds,’’ Hernandez said. ‘‘I just stepped back, found my room and caught him with the right that landed perfectly.’’ Orlando’s Phillip Penson had a successful professional debut with a victory by unanimous decision over Miami resident Jose Aleman. Using distance, a taller Penson outpointed Aleman with effective left jabs followed by multiple combinations to the head. Penson also frustrated Aleman with right uppercuts. All three judges scored the super-middleweight bout 40-36 for Penson. In other bouts: lightweight Puro Pairol won by TKO over Adrian Perez at 1:22 of the first round; and cruiserweight Yuniesky Gonzalez won by TKO over Ramon Adorno at 19 seconds of the first round.

The last few days have been spent in nervous flurry, the bride checking off the many details, the usually impatient groom grinning and bearing it. Me, I’ve tried to stay in the background as much as possible – always a good role for a mom-in-law – and not give voice to the worries. My misgivings are not about them. Heavens, no. They seem to complement each other well and certainly have it more together than I did at that age. Frankly, my qualms are about marriage itself. It’s so dang difficult to stay together! Tying the knot is the easy part, what with websites and wedding coordinators to keep one organized, but keeping the appropriate tension in that knot is a yeoman’s job.

Shooting stars Retired educator Paul Merker moonlighted as a celebrity photographer at the storied Palm Bay Club in the swinging 1970s BY ANA VECIANA SUAREZ aveciana@MiamiHerald.com NAN AL DIAZ/THE MIAMI HERALD Most people know Paul Merker as a devoted educator -- the principal who shepherded Palmetto Middle School, the vice principal who helped run mammoth Braddock High and, long before that, a teacher and athletic director at Miami Springs High. Few, however, have been afforded a peek into Merker’s other life: society photographer for Miami’s rich and famous in the swinging 1970s. Now 62 and retired, Merker is organizing bins of photos that trace the glitz and glamour of the Magic City when celebrities were “very nice, a kinder, gentler group, and the people who were not so nice weren’t that many.” He wants to write a book – not a kiss and tell, by any means, but one that makes this pre-Internet, pre-People magazine era come alive for those too young to remember the heyday of the Palm Bay Club in Northeast Miami. In fact, when pressed to dish embarrassing tidbits or unflattering anecdotes about his most notorious subjects, he demurs again and again. Still, he has plenty of stories. Like the time he was asked to photograph the gorgeous Liz Taylor. Then married to Sen. John Warner, La Liz was in town to do a play, Little Foxes. She and her two daughters were cruising with friends on the Intracoastal from the Palm Bay Club on 69th Street to Turnberry Isle in what is now Aventura. “At one point, she said, ‘Put your camera away. You look like you can dance.’ And we danced,’” Merker recalls. “She was the nicest, nicest person.” Later, when a cab didn’t show up on time, Merker asked his driver for the day to take one of the daughters to the airport. A grateful Taylor returned to the yacht to thank him and invited Merker up to her birthday party.

DOLITTLER Don’t let shipping charges cancel out online savings BY TERESA MEARS teresa@floridaonthecheap.com I love shopping online. If I can buy all my holiday gifts without stepping into a single store, I consider it a coup. But I can’t count the times I’ve thought I’d found a great deal online only to discover that the shipping charge wiped out any savings. This year, the good news for consumers is that retailers are competing for our dollars with free or discounted shipping. Even Walmart has gotten into the game, offering free shipping on 60,000 items from its website through Dec. 20. There’s no minimum purchase, and you’ll even get free shipping on returns. Many companies offer free shipping if you order a certain amount of mer- chandise. While they’re not matching Walmart’s deal, Target, Sears, JCPenney, MEARS Sears and Toys R Us have launched shipping promotions for the holiday season. ShopRunner.com offers a shipping membership program, much like Amazon Prime, with free twoday shipping for a year at participating merchants for $79. (You can try it free for a month.) Before you buy anything online, do a search for the company and “free shipping.” If you don’t find a coupon, consider waiting a few days to see if a freeshipping promotion appears. If you strike out, consider waiting until Free Shipping Day, which is Dec. 17 this year, to order. The promotion is organized by the website FreeShipping.org, where more than 1,000 merchants have signed up so far to offer free shipping in time for Christmas for goods ordered on that day. FreeShipping.org collects promo codes and free shipping offers, making it a good place to check any day before you pay for shipping of an online purchase.

PATTY KHULY khulyp@bellsouth.net Q. My sister says poinsettias are highly toxic to pets, but I think that’s a myth. Let me know – I’m planning to buy a whole bunch really soon! A. According to the veterinarians at Pet Poison Helpline, poinsettia plants (Euphorbia pulcherrima) are only “mildly toxic” to dogs and cats. Over the years, however, their toxic reputation somehow gained legendary status. Only mild irritation of the mouth, stomach or skin is to be expected – and only if pets come into direct contact with or ingest the plant. I’ve never seen a case of poinsettia-related toxicosis, so tell your sister she’s wrong (always fun). Here are a few more holiday poison tips for pet lovers: Mistletoe: This “kissing” plant also has a mistaken reputation for toxicity. It can Q.

Aries the Ram chases the Winged Horse (Great Square of Pegasus) west of Zenith.Vega and the Summer Triangle slip lower in the northwest. Cygnus, Swan, soars within the Triangle. The Summer Milky Way (River of Stars) slides onto the western horizon. Phoenix perches on the southern horizon. Cetus, Whale, swims across the south.

Can anyone contradict that experience? I have yet to meet a man or woman in a “perfect” marriage, the kind of relationship that flat lines in bliss without the highs and lows that we, the committed ride, out with blind faith. And with love, too, of course. But as Abba so aptly sang, We gotta have patience/ Love isn’t just a sensation/ Some of the time it gets rough/ Love isn’t easy but it sure is hard enough. Everyone I know who remains married eventually learns to cobble a less-thanperfect union, one in which both parties spend a lifetime working hard to create a life together. The result is sometimes wonderful, sometimes infuriating, sometimes just good enough. No one expects this at the I Do’s. A survey making the rounds paints marriage as increasingly optional, an institution on its way to obsolescence. This view is held most widely by the younger set – in other words, my children’s peers. The number of Americans of all ages who considers marriage an indulgence, not a necessity, has been going up for years. In 1978, when the divorce rate was higher than now, 28 percent thought marriage was going the way of the dodo. Today 39 percent do. Census data reflects the shifting sands: In 1960, 72 percent of Americans were married. In 2010, 54 percent are. The recent Pew Research Center report, in association with Time magazine, also spotlighted a disturbing trend: Wealthier and better educated Americans are more likely to marry and stay married, while the poor tend to cohabitate more and divorce in higher numbers, further dividing the haves and the have-nots. For all that, marriage remains as desirable as ever, for the stability it promises, for the wealth it helps generate, for the message it sends to the world at large. My eldest son has been attending weddings, mostly of his college friends, at the rate of one a month. He jokes he needs a budget just for gifts. Which tells me one thing: In matters of love and marriage, hope reigns supreme. THE MIAMI HERALD | MiamiHerald.com SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 | 3E H1 TELEVISION Q&A No more new adventures for ‘Old Christine’ BY RICH HELDENFELS Akron Beacon Journal Q. Please tell me what happened to The New Adventures of Old Christine. That was among the funniest shows, especially with Julia LouisDreyfus and Wanda Sykes together. If I remember correctly, LOUIS-DREYFUS Louis-Dreyfus even received an Emmy for it. A. Many viewers had tired of the show after five seasons. There was talk about it going to ABC after CBS canceled it in May, but no deal was made. It continues in reruns on Lifetime, and the first three seasons are on DVD. Louis-Dreyfus, already a supporting-actress comedy Emmy winner for Seinfeld, added an Emmy as lead comedy actress for Old Christine after its first season in 2006. Q. Q. I’ve all but given up on finding the name of a movie I saw on TV years ago. The film was black and white, and took place in a rural setting — perhaps the English countryside. The first scene I saw was of a well-dressed man and woman getting out of a car that had crashed in a storm. They decide to go for help, and walk up to what appears to be an abandoned mansion. Near the end of the movie, they walk back to the car. They are stunned to see themselves slumped over dead in it. A. I think you are remembering a 1973 movie called Voices, and also sometimes known as Nightmare. It starred David Hemmings and Gayle Hunnicutt, who were husband and wife at the time. It is in color, but the scenes match what you remember. The movie does not appear to be available in an authorized video, but it has been posted piecemeal on YouTube. L...

Gary Hart’s onboard dalliance with a Miami model scuttled his presidential campaign.) During the dozen or so years Merker served as the official photographer for the tony club, he also snapped Jimmy Stewart (who spoke to him about architecture), Truman Capote (who asked lots of questions about Brazil, where Merker had lived briefly), Joe Namath (who had “a very warm and compassionate side the press never saw”), Mildred “Brownie” McLean (whose husband’s family once owned the famed Hope Diamond) and actor Ernest Borgnine (“gruff appearance – gentle voice”). Local notables were his subjects, too, including several governors, U.S. Reps. Claude Pepper and William Lehman and University of Miami President Henry King Stanford, who always wore a fresh carnation on his lapel. Joe Robbie, the late owner of the Miami Dolphins, made a lasting impression on Merker, a small-town Ohio boy who often thought he “was way over my head” at the fancy shindigs. “Robbie was a tough, tough negotiator,” he says, laughing. “I remember going toe to toe, nose to nose in the club with him arguing about a fee.” On the other hand, he calls former Gov. Bob Graham “one of the two nicest people I’ve ever met” – Lehman being the other. Though many of Merker’s photographs were intended for the club’s newsletter, The Palm Bay Bee, he says his work also appeared in Town & Country, Women’s Wear Daily, W and Palm Beach Life. For many years he led a double life – photography teacher by day, photographer by night – and took several leaves from the classroom to travel “by train, plane, boat, you name it” in pursuit of the perfect posed shot. To keep up with his evening and weekend gigs, he eventually moved from a modest apartment in Southwest Dade and into the Palm Bay Club. At school he wore a dress shirt and tie; at the Palm Bay he sported a chi-chi velvet jacket over a silk shirt. PHOTOS COURTESY OF PAUL MERKER THE FAMOUS: Connie Dinkler and George Bush, clockwise from left, Henry King Stanford and wife Ruth, Paul Newman, Don Shula and Joe Robbie are captured in Paul Merker’s photos. THE AUTHOR: Connie Dinkler with Truman Capote. THE STAR: Merker with Elizabeth Taylor, ‘the nicest, nicest person,’ who invited him to her birthday party. Club owner Connie Dinkler, who hired Merker after meeting him at a restaurant, had a strict policy: “She always said being rich and famous was not enough. You had to be fun as well.” Back in its heyday, Palm Bay “was the place to be, the hippest place,” says historian Paul George of Miami-Dade College. “And Connie Dinkler was the grand dame. She was considered the best party-giver in Miami.” George recalls being invited there for a friend’s wedding and wandering the “nicely appointed” club with amazement. “If you had an invitation to the place, you’d jump at it.” Merker remembers the club as “very elegant” but also fun and understated. Reminiscing in his Kendall dining room about his time with the jet-setting crowd makes him pensive. Surrounded by wealth, he says, he learned humility. “I knew all of it was temporary. I saw people come and go. They were in and then they were out.” When Dinkler died of a heart attack at 59 in 1982, Merker re-assessed his situation. He was tired of balancing a day job in the classroom with moonlighting at parties, so he bid the glitz goodbye. “I was burned out,” he says. “I had been burning the candle on both ends for too long and I looked terrible. Of course I had thought of leaving teaching a few times, but the partying all night and going to event after event was just not conducive to a healthy lifestyle.” With more time on his hands, he settled into his career. He met and married his wife, Laurie, started a family and began his climb up the Miami-Dade public school system ladder, retiring from Palmetto Middle after six years there. He was “a great principal, always giving us feedback and helping us with what we needed,” says Cristine O’Hara, Miami-Dade’s 2010 Teacher of the Year, whom Merker hired at Palmetto. They spoke often, O’Hara says, but he never mentioned his days as society photographer, though the revelation doesn’t surprise here. “He’s the type of person who’s always busy and exploring.” Hobnobbing with the powerful “made me a good principal,” Merker says. “It taught me to deal with all kinds of people and I had to learn how to approach people.” Though he has a master’s degree in administration and supervision, Merker returned to school and recently graduated as a Certified Addiction Professional. He’s been interning at South Miami Hospital, and considers counseling an extension of his previous careers. “As a teacher and a principal I learned classroom management skills, crisis intervention, conflict resolution, anger management and student safety, all valuable experiences when I facilitate therapy groups, individual counseling and teach groups about addiction. “As a photographer, I gained experience and confidence in understanding people and how their current economic and social status impacts their lives. Also, I learned valuable communication skills. “These experiences gave me confidence and the tools I can use as a therapist to help people with addiction issues.” ART OF FASHION Some fairgoers wear their art on their sleeves • ART BASEL, FROM 1E ● Irene Karp, who lives in Palm Beach, wore a Prada dress made from a vintage Prada print that was reintroduced this year.

Dad is an alcoholic. I guess you could say I have kind of given up on him. I’m involved in many sports, but rarely does he show up to support me, unlike my mom who is there at every game. Dad has now left us. He still calls Mom just about every day, and he stops by the house to “check up” on things about three times a week. Mom forced me to send him a “Happy Birthday” text. She wants me to start talking to him again and to build a relationship with him, but I think he has missed out on too much of my life already. (He even missed my first prom!) I don’t feel I need him in my life, or that he deserves me in his. What should I do? Let Down by Dad in Kansas Because you are close to your mother, you need to have her explain to you why she feels it is important for you to include your father in your life. If he is trying to quit drinking, she may have good reasons for wanting you to. While I understand and sympathize with the fact that your father has disappointed you and that you are angry about it, carrying that kind of anger can be more destructive to you than it is to him. That’s why it could be helpful to you to check out a support group called Alateen. It was started especially to help young people whose lives have been affected by the compulsive drinking of a family member or a friend. It offers a booklet titled “Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism 2011,” which can be read on the Al-Anon website at www. Al-AnonFamilyGroups.org.

I dread going to his family’s for dinner for fear that it will turn into “card night.” Harper’s ex-girlfriend was fine with being included in everything. I feel like I’m stepping into her shoes, and I don’t like how it feels. Harper never forces me to go, but I have to find a way to tell him it’s not necessary for me to accompany him every week. I don’t want to offend him or his family. Help! Too Much, Too Soon You need to recognize that Harper is extremely close to his family and that his idea of a good time is seeing and interacting with them. If you continue to date him, you will have to accept that his family — including extended family, friends and card nights — will be a large part of the package. Many women might welcome being wrapped in the embrace of a large, warm family, but because you feel otherwise, it’s time to level with him and tell him that you’re finding this overwhelming. — Write to Dear Abby at P.O.

JUMBLE ACES ON BRIDGE 67 68 69 70 FRIDAY’S SOLUTION East Pass Pass All pass Opening lead — ◆ queen 12-4 West leads the diamond queen against six no-trump. What is your plan to make 12 tricks? You have three top tricks in the majors and need to develop three more major-suit winners. As playing on spades first will yield at most two extra tricks, you should play on hearts first (where the potential is greater). So you take the diamond queen in hand with the king and lead a low heart toward dummy’s queen. This will give you three extra tricks if West flies up with the king or if East can take the heart queen with the king and hearts split 3-3. In our given layout, West holds the heart king but cannot play it, so the heart queen will win the second trick. Now you have 10 certain tricks and have to decide whether to continue to play on hearts or to switch to spades. While you have a fair chance of making another two tricks in hearts by continuing the suit, it is better to switch to spades by leading the spade two toward your jack. This will bring in two extra spade tricks when East holds the spade queen and the suit breaks no worse than 4-2 or when West holds the spade queen and spades break 3-3. Playing on hearts, then on spades, is the only way to succeed today. And note that if you tackle either suit in any way except the recommended one, your contract fails. —BOBBY WOLFF BOGGLE UNIVERSAL SUDOKU WORDY GURDY FRIDAY’S SOLUTION CHESS QUIZ WHITE TO PLAY Hint: Win a rook.

Grow vegetables, herbs in balcony gardens BY JANA SOELDNER DANGER Special to South Florida Home Vegetables and herbs can easily grow in containers placed on a table or the balcony floor. While tomatoes are popular, they are not the only vegetable that can succeed in containers. Fall is the time for South Floridians to plant vegetables and herbs. And homeowners whose only outdoor space is a condominium balcony need not be left out. Both vertical gardens and horizontal container gardens offer options for condominium dwellers, as well as for those with very small yards. “With the economy being what it is, more people are saying they want to try growing some of their own vegetables, and the concept of vertical gardening is getting more attention,” says Laura Tooley, director of horticulture for Flamingo Gardens in Davie. “It uses very little floor space, so it’s great for a balcony or patio.” In addition to saving space, a vertical garden can also add interest to a plain balcony or patio wall. A homeowner can create one by building shelves or purchasing ready-made racks or stacked planters. A trellis is another possibility. There are Think about how the position of the balcony and the changing shadow of the building during the day will affect how the sun falls. also hanging planters that allow tomatoes and other vegetables to grow upside down. Those who don’t want to bother with shelving or special planters can grow vegetables and herbs in containers placed on the balcony floor. But whether the garden will be vertical or conventionally horizon- tal, there are certain things to consider and rules to follow. “First, be sure the balcony will support the weight of whatever you’re planning to put out there,” says John McLaughlin, home gardening advisor for the Miami-Dade County Extension Office. “Planters can get heavy, especially if they get water- logged, so check with the building manager.” Most vegetables and flowers require plentiful amounts of sunshine and shelter from the wind. “Your balcony’s position on the building will affect sun exposure and prevailing winds,” McLaughlin says. “If your unit is higher up, you’ll get more exposure to the wind, and a trellis is more likely to be caught in it.” If the unit faces north, the garden will get the north winds, and even in Florida, they can be cold. “If temperatures get down into the 40s, north winds can damage tender plants,” McLaughlin says. Think about how the position of the balcony and the changing shadow of the building during the day will affect how the sun falls. “If your balcony is on the south side of the building, you might get blazing sun all day, and if it’s on the north side, you may get very little sun,” McLaughlin says. “If it’s on the • TURN TO BALCONY GARDENS, 4 ( BLACK CYAN ) ) ) ) YELLOW MAGENTA CYAN Story HN1H_011204 System MIAE by WBENNETT MAGENTA Time 17:29:45 Date 12/02/10 Story # 0 Story name HN1H_011204 Basket INL PAGES Last text user WBENNETT H , 1, N1 , Keyword: YELLOW BLACK |HN1H_021204K/~ BLACK |HN1H_021204C6~ |HN1H_021204MG~ CYAN MAGENTA 2H The Miami Herald N1 |HN1H_021204Yp~ YELLOW SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010 HOUSE OF THE WEEK: See the luxurious residences EWM and Coldwell Banker have available in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Smaller home trend continues, census shows BY JIM WOODARD Creators Syndicate Based on data from the Census Bureau, a new look at housing starts finds that U.S. single-family homes continued to get smaller last year, and the downward trend is likely to last significantly beyond the end of the recession. From a peak of 2,268 square feet in 2006, the median size of new singlefamily homes dropped consistently through last year when the size was down to an even 2,100 square foot, according to a special study by economists at the National Association of Home Builders. In the early 1980s, when mortgage interest rates climbed to astronomical heights, home sizes experienced a similar decline, but it was only temporarily. Today’s downsizing trend is likely to last longer, the report predicts. “A new housing market is emerging, and even with the recession in the rearview mirror, we expect the popularity of smaller homes to persist,” said Bob Jones, chairman of NAHB. “Builders are responding to a new mindset among homebuyers and that is transforming the product they deliver.” The current decline in home size can be attributed to factors like the desire to keep energy costs down, the amount of equity in existing homes available to be rolled over into new ones, tighter credit standards, less interest in buying a home as an investment and a growing presence of first-time buyers. Why is home remodeling on the increase? One reason: According to a report from AARP, most seniors prefer to stay in their existing home rather than move due to health and independence concerns. Remodeling for aging-in-place can enhance a home’s function as an individual ages or lives with a disability. This trend is boosting business for remodelers throughout the country. Aging-in-place solutions are tailored for each individual, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Home remodels frequently include installing grab bars to minimize falling, adding comfortheight toilets, building nostep showers, and widening doorways to allow for mobility-assistance equipment, such as wheelchairs. “Remodelers can make a home more accessible while also improving its beauty,” said Donna Shirey, NAHB’s Remodelers chairman. Is this a good time to renovate a home? Yes, considering the tax credits that are currently available. However, homeowners have a short time to take advantage of those credits. The renovations can help homeowners save energy and reduce their utility bills with more energy-efficient windows and doors, insulation, and heating and cooling equipment, according to the National Association of Home Builders. “Homeowners should act soon if they want to qualify for up to $1,500 in tax credits when they complete their 2010 income tax returns,” said NAHB Remodelers Chair Donna Shirey. “We think it would be a great benefit to both the environment and to our economy to extend these tax benefits, but they are now scheduled to expire at the end of the year.” “For that reason, NAHB suggests that homeowners get the work done before Dec. 31, while the tax credits are still available,” noted Shirey. The tax credit for efficiency upgrades in existing homes (Internal Revenue Code Section 25C) is available for 30 percent of the cost – up to a $1,500 limit for 2009 and 2010 – for the installation of certain types of insulation, windows, roofs, water heaters, heat pumps, air conditioners and furnaces. Details on the kinds of products that qualify and instructions for obtaining the credit are available at www.nahb.org/efficiencytaxcredit. Is the homeownership rate increasing or decreasing? The ownership rate is now at 66.9 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That’s the lowest proportion of owners since 1999. Foreclosures are taking their toll on the ownership rate. The rate hovered around 64 percent for decades and then started climbing significantly in 1995. It reached a peak in 2004 when it rose to just over 69 percent. Since then, the rate has been steadily declining. Are homeowners generally satisfied with Realtor services? Consumer satisfaction with services rendered by Realtors is dropping, according to a survey by J.D. Power and Associates. In a recent survey, about 5 percent fewer homeowners expressed satisfaction when compared with a similar study a year ago. However, more homebuyers reported satisfaction with Realtors. The study revealed a 1.5 percent increase in the number of satisfied homebuyers. The study examined three basic factors: the individual Realtor or associate who handled the transaction, the office in general and the variety of additional services offered. The report was publicized in the current "The Residential Specialist" magazine, published by the National Association of Realtors. Select proper wall paint colors BY PAT LOGAN Creators Syndicate Oliver Ruiz 2010 President of the Residential Board of Governors MIAMI Association of REALTORS Miami Existing Single-Family Homes Prices Jump 12 Percent in October In the Miami Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), the median sales price of singlefamily homes in October increased 12 percent to $199,100 from a year earlier, according to the MIAMI Association of REALTORS and the Southeast Florida Multiple Listing Service (SEFMLS). Miami was one of only three home markets and the only major metropolitan area in Florida posting an increase for median sales price of singlefamily homes. Compared to the previous month, the median sales price rose six percent. The median sales price of condominiums in the Miami MSA dropped 22 percent in October, to $107,700, compared to the same month last year but increased more than eight percent compared to the previous month. Home and Condominium Sales The sales of existing singlefamily homes in the Miami MSA decreased only four percent to 546 compared to October 2009 but were 21 percent higher than they were in October 2008. The Miami real estate market experienced rising residential sales since August 2008, posting increases for 23 consecutive months. In the Miami MSA, condominium sales increased 17 percent to 757 compared to October 2009 and a 72 percent increase compared to two years ago, when sales were already rising. This was the highest increase in condominium sales of any major metropolitan area in Florida. Average Home Prices Average sales prices, which have increased consistently over the last few months, decreased in October. According to the SEFMLS, the average sales price of properties that sold in Miami-Dade County in October decreased a negligible 2.1 percent from the previous year to $273,697 for single-family homes and decreased 17 percent to $195,095 for condominiums. However, compared to the previous month, the average sales increased two percent for singlefamily homes and 3.4 percent for condominiums. Short sales and foreclosures are continuing to have an impact on median and average sales prices for both single-family homes and condominiums especially in some areas of the county. Oliver Ruiz Fortune International Realty, Inc. 2666 Brickell Avenue Miami, FL 33129 (305) 856-2600 oruiz@fir.com The plans are completed for my new house, but I have to select the colors for the walls in the various rooms. What is the best color to use for various rooms and which will make them seem bigger? The basic colors you select can impact the sense of spaciousness and overall feeling in a room. In addition to the basic color, you should also consider using combinations of colors and tints to create the decor you desire. Your paint store should have a color wheel to show which colors complement and contrast with each other. In general, lighter and pale colors tend to make a room look larger, and darker colors make one look smaller. Frank Lloyd Wright used this color variation concept in many of his homes (particularly Falling Water) to make a light-colored room appear larger when entering it through a dark, smaller hallway. Determine how and when your room will be used when selecting a color. If the room has few windows or will be used predominantly at night so artificial (incandescent) lighting will be needed, pinks and reds looker deeper and richer. Blue and green colors may look washed out. In rooms used with artificial lights, warm colors such as reds and yellows are called advancing colors because they will give a sense of the walls being drawn toward you. This also creates a comfortable, cozy feeling. These colors would work well in east-facing rooms, basements or rooms heavily shaded by trees. In bright, sunny rooms, selecting cool colors such as blues and greens can create a feeling of openness. These are often called receding colors because they seem to draw the walls away from you. Because they are similar to the colors in nature, they also feel airy and relaxing. Earth-tone colors such as light browns and beiges are typically neutral on the sense of a room’s size. They are less attention getting and allow people to focus on the contents of the room instead of the room itself. These colors are often a good fit with colorful furniture that you may want to accentuate. Using combinations of bold contrasting colors in a room can create a dramatic appearance and feel. When done improperly, it also looks terrible and jumbled. If you are not sure about how several different colors would look, try using various shades of the same basic color. This will not look as dramatic, but it certainly is a lot safer. High ceilings are popular in today’s homes. These can be painted any pale color. If you want to create a cozy feeling in a room with a high ceiling, paint it with an advancing color to make the ceiling feel closer. You can continue the ceiling color down to a molding to give it the impression of being even lower. If the ceilings in your home are low, paint them bright white instead. For long narrow hallways, as you may find in a ranch-type home, paint the end of the hall a darker or advancing warm color. Paint the sidewalls with a pale receding color and the ceiling with bright white to make it seem bigger. If you have a long narrow rectangular room, use the same hallway painting scheme to give a squarer feel.

That can cause problems with disease.” Oceanfront condominium owners who live on the east side have another consideration. “Look for salt-tolerant plants,” McLaughlin says. “If you’re on the opposite side of the building, you won’t get the direct salt spray.” While tomatoes are popular, they are not the only vegetable that can succeed in containers. Cabbages, squash, and cucumbers can work. Adventurous and experienced container gardeners might even want to try potatoes or sweet corn. “It’s possible to grow one or two potato plants in a container, but it’s easier in a raised bed,” McLaughlin says. “The number of pests make potatoes potentially difficult, and sweet corn also has the potential for pests. I wouldn’t recommend starting out with potatoes or sweet corn.” Whatever the type of vegetable, choose the right kind of container. “You want one with good drainage,” Tooley says. It doesn’t have to be expensive, however, “You can use a painters bucket with holes drilled into it,” McLaughlin says. The type of soil is important. “Buy soil meant for containers,” McLaughlin says. “Black dirt is too heavy and doesn’t drain well. You need some kind of aggregate in it to provide drainage.” Many people choose to purchase young plants from a garden store. Others enjoy sowing seeds. “Seeds are more challenging, because seedlings can get fungus,” Tooley says. When choosing plants, consider the growing times. “You don’t want everything ripening at the same time so everything is ready for harvesting all at once,” Tooley says. “Arrange the timing so some of your plants will have early fruiting, some medium, and some later.” Think about the care a particular plant will require. “A lot of people are getting interested in planting heirloom varieties because they think they taste better,” McLaughlin says. “But the drawback is that they don’t have as much disease resistance.” Once the garden is planted, be sure to water properly. “On a high balcony, plants are more likely to dry out,” McLaughlin says. “But don’t over-water. Water around the base of the plant to keep the water off the foliage, or you may have disease problems.” Be careful with fertilizer. “Too much fertilizer will burn the leaves,” McLaughlin says. “But not enough may cause the leaves to yellow.” Organic fertilizers have advantages. “They tend to last longer than chemical fertilizers,” Tooley says. “Anything with ammonium nitrate in it will travel through the soil quickly.” To produce vegetables, pollination is necessary. “In city gardens, you might have to selfpollinate because we don’t have bees,” McLaughlin says. “Bees help with pollination just by their vibration in the flowers.” Helping to accomplish the pollination process doesn’t have to be difficult, however, and it isn’t always required. “On a balcony, the breeze can be enough to loosen the pollen.” McLaughlin says. “And sometimes you just have to shake the plant.” Other insects besides bees can be beneficial to plants. Some, like ladybugs and ichneumon wasps, can help control harmful insects. If insects do attack the plants, or if the plants develop a disease, the first thing to do is to identify the problem. “Then you can choose the right product to control it,” McLaughlin says. “You need to attend to it as quickly as possible so it doesn’t spread to other plants.” But don’t be heavyhanded. “On balconies, you need to be careful with pesticides, because they can drift,” McLaughlin says. “I don’t recommend anything stronger than insecticide soap.” infinityatbrickell.com SALES CENTER 60 SW 13th Street Suite #1724 Miami FL 33130 Monday - Friday 10am to 6pm Saturday & Sunday 11am to 5pm TEL 305.400.6144 * ONE BUILDING, INFINITE POSSIBILITIES Live the high life at Infinity, Miami’s award-winning lifestyle lofts.
