Sunny Isles Beach is a city located on a barrier island in northeast Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States.. The City is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. The population was 15,315 at the 2000 census. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 15,399. Sunny Isles Beach is a major center of South Florida's Russian community, with a plethora of Russian stores lining Collins Avenue, the main thoroughfare through the city. The city is sometimes referred to as Little Moscow because of its many Russian and Russian-descended (Russian American) residents. It is a booming resort area and developers such as Donald Trump have invested heavily in construction of high-rise hotels and condominiums. -- Source: Wikipedia.com

Brianti Saunders figures that she’s spent half of her life — maybe even more than that — in a basketball gym.
If she’s not playing basketball at Hilliard, she’s practicing it. If she’s not practicing, Saunders is teaching it. If she’s not teaching it, she’s at least in there with her father, Myron, talking about how to get better at it.
“My dad, he was going to the gym all the time,” Saunders said. “A ball was in there and I just picked it up.”
And never put it down.

Of the more than 200 Baptist churches in the Ocala area, First Baptist is undoubtedly the largest and most impressive. It is a huge complex sitting on several acres on the southeast side of town.
It didn’t rain on Jean Motley’s parade, which allowed her to celebrate her 90th birthday surrounded by tail-wagging old friends.
It was exactly what she wanted.
The co-founder of SAFE Pet Rescue said her birthday wish was to see some of the pets she’s helped place in homes since August of 2008.
Her colleagues responded by throwing a birthday bash and pet reunion Sunday at SAFE headquarters that began in late morning with a dog parade. About 30 pampered pooches, most on leashes, some in strollers and wagons, were part of the event.
VILANO BEACH — Six vacant waterfront lots on upscale Porpoise Point Road will be auctioned off as residential development lots Monday, even though they’ve been deemed as probably unbuildable by St. Johns County officials.
Each lot is currently assessed at $13,500, but in 2005 they sold for nearly $3 million.
Dave Darty, director of real property for St. Johns County Property Appraiser Sharon Outland’s office, said this is a “buyer beware” sale.
To get an idea just how good St. Johns County Schools are, read the report from the internationally recognized accreditation agency that presented its findings to the district last week.
But, then again, maybe reading the report isn’t such a good idea. It’s in educationalese. Educators understand it, but we were left scratching our heads.
Six people appeared before the St. Johns County School Board last week to ask the district to be a test case for a state law that permits students to give “inspirational messages” at school events.
This School Board — along with every other school board in the state — made the right choice in not taking them up on this.
It’s time to change gears and think ahead to summer fun. And St. Augustine has plenty to offer for the younger set when it comes to “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.”
Following is a listing of a variety of summer camp opportunities being offered. Next week the spotlight will be on the sporting-type camps.
The St. Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine St., will offer five summer art camps this year beginning in June. Each is a week-long, half-day camp, offering painting, drawing, ceramics, mixed media and sculpture.
It’s a big deal when your dad turns 85. After all, he grew up during the Great Depression, served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, and above all, survived the rearing of four children.
So what do you give a man who says he “doesn’t need anything?”
Laura Thompson recalled the days when the family lived in Arlington, Va., when her father, Charles Thompson, would talk about his younger days in Hammond, La.
“He said he always wanted to fly an airplane,” Laura said, and added that he saved his money and eventually purchased a small Luscombe.
TALLAHASSEE — For Janet Spears, the waiting is the hardest part.
Her only son, Keith, and his girlfriend, Melanie King, were robbed, murdered and set afire in their Wakulla County home in 1997. Two of the three men convicted in the deaths, Jason Looney and Guerry Hertz, have been on death row since 2000.
Today, Spears wonders whether she’ll live long enough to see her son’s killers put to death. “It’s a living torture,” said Spears, 65. “It’s something the family thinks about every day. There’s no reason for it being this long.”
ELKTON — Sandra Nagy of St. Augustine said it’s important that kids learn about where the food they eat comes from. So, when she read about the First Coast Farm Stroll in the newspaper, she brought her grandchildren out to Blue Sky Farms in Elkton to get a hands-on look at a working potato farm.
WASHINGTON — A bipartisan deal on immigration legislation would need tough enforcement and even stricter penalties for those who came to the United States illegally, a leading Republican at the center of negotiations said Sunday.
Sen. Marco Rubio, who’s among the eight senators writing a plan that’s expected to come out Tuesday, tried to promote the framework for the emerging overhaul that would provide a path toward citizenship for those who came to the country illegally or overstayed their visit.
Pleasant weather brings out the events as this week in Putnam County proves.
The much-talked-about Mass Class Reunion for high school classes from 1970 to 1977 takes place this weekend. They’re calling themselves Children of the Bridge (as in Memorial Bridge) and the get-together features classes from Palatka South High and Central High, the two schools that folded in to become Palatka High.
The following county roads will be under construction this week in St. Johns County:
NORTHEAST 32082, 32095
¦ Palm Valley area: periodic lane closures should be expected in the area of County Road 210 from the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge to the Mickler Road roundabout, Palm Valley Road from the Mickler roundabout to Bay Cove Drive and Mickler Road from the roundabout to Cuello Court — site preparation and sidewalk construction.
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Adam Scott finished the job this time, and put an end to more than a half-century of Australian misery at the Masters.
With the two biggest putts of his career, Scott holed a 20-footer for birdie on the 18th hole of regulation that put him into a playoff with Angel Cabrera, and then won his first major championship Sunday with a 12-footer for birdie on the second extra hole.
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods has four Masters titles and the green jackets that go with them. But he hasn’t won at Augusta National Golf Club since 2005.
He will have to wait another year to try to snap that drought after settling for another top-10 finish Sunday. Woods had a final-round 2-under-par 70 to finish at 5 under for the tournament. He had earlier rounds of 70-73-70 and now has eight straight rounds in the 70s at Augusta National.
Woods finished four shots out of the lead and tied for fourth.
Issue: ‘We have discovered several significant loopholes in the State Code of Ethics ... (that make it easy) for elected officials ... to circumvent the intent of the law (that they not vote on matters benefitting them or their business associates)’ — Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs
The majority of St. Johns County commissioners do not support the ethics reform that the mayor of one of Florida’s largest counties says is essential to close loopholes in the law that now make it possible for local elected officials to benefit financially from their votes.
June 14, 2012
Robert J. Sniffen, Chair
Florida Commission on Ethics
P. O. Drawer 15709
Tallahassee, FL 32317-5709
Dear Mr. Sniffen,
I regret not being able to attend the Florida Commission on Ethics meeting Friday in which you will discuss your legislative agenda for next session. We are very committed to ethics reforms in Orange County and our experience here could be of great value to you as you look to strengthen ethics and transparency statewide.
Response to The St. Augustine Record by County Commissioner Rachael Bennett:
INDIANAPOLIS — With tears in their eyes and Kevin Ware in their hearts, there was no way Louisville was losing this game.
Russ Smith scored 23, Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks, and top-seeded Louisville put aside the shock from Ware’s gruesome leg injury to earn a second straight trip to the Final Four with an 85-63 victory over Duke on Sunday afternoon.
As the final seconds ticked down, Chane Behanan put Ware’s jersey on and stood at the end of the Louisville bench, screaming. Cardinals fans chanted “Kevin Ware! Kevin Ware!”
MIAMI — A 4-year-old girl was fatally shot while she sat in a car outside her grandfather’s Miami home, and now detectives are trying to determine if another child who was in the vehicle pulled the trigger, police said Sunday.
The children were waiting in a white Mercedes-Benz Saturday evening as an adult stood nearby outside in an impoverished neighborhood with scattered storefront churches and boarded-up businesses on the northern edge of Miami-Dade County.
TALLAHASSEE — David Wescott has two 32-ounce growlers he brings into Proof Brewing Company to fill up and take home.
Why two? Because Florida is one of only three states where it’s illegal to fill one 64-ounce beer container, known as a growler. He can get as many of the 32-ounce containers filled as he wants, and Florida breweries can also fill unlimited 128-ounce growlers for customers to take home. But the size preferred by most beer enthusiasts is banned.
KEY LARGO (AP) — About 80 children and adults got wet to participate in Underwater Easter Egg Hunt in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
Spencer Slate, owner of a Key Largo dive shop, donned a bunny suit and scuba gear Sunday to hide colored, hard-boiled eggs for divers to locate.
Among about 160 eggs positioned in the eel grass near Grecian Rocks, a popular snorkeling area off Key Largo, were two golden eggs that finders exchanged for traditional Easter baskets as prizes.
Amid surgeries and hospital visits, plans of a wedding began to take shape for injured U.S. Army 1st. Lt. Ryan Timoney and his then fiancee, now wife, Kelby.
Timoney, a Bartram Trail High School graduate, was injured in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan, on May 20, in a suicide bombing that killed two of his fellow solders and injured others. He has gone through a long recovery process that has included surgery on his leg and a metal plate to replace part of his skull.
Throughout the long, painful recovery process, Kelby has been there. Now, they are official.
St. Johns County’s electronic communication systems — local phones, long distance, data lines and wireless — cost taxpayers $694,229 annually — a figure the cost-conscious County Commission suspected was too high.
After a study by a Fernandina Beach-based telecommunications consultant, the county learned that closer management of information systems could reduce bills by $482,000 over three years.
Last week, the county decided to approve a two-year contract with that company, Abilita, to audit and efficiently manage the county’s multiple systems.
When four cousins of the Versaggi clan gathered recently to make Grandma Vincenzina Versaggi’s famous Italian sausage, they had several big questions that needed answering.
The first was to decide who had the hand most shaped like their grandmother, says Grace Anna Spiller Paaso.
It turned out to belong to Janis Versaggi Williams, and that hand was quickly put into service to figure out how much salt would be needed to flavor the 24 pounds of deboned pork shoulder.
TALLAHASSEE — State budget-writers are using Florida’s first budget surplus in six years to fill previous cuts made to education, give state worker’s pay raises and fully fund the Florida Department of Transportation’s project wish list.
Both the House and Senate unveiled spending plans Friday. They represent a marked difference from recent budgets, which slashed state funding, because state economists estimate that Florida will have $3.5 billion in additional revenue next year.
St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar has come out with both barrels blasting in his criticism of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s investigation into the death of a woman who was the girlfriend of a deputy.
Shoar says two separate investigations by his department found that Michelle O’Connell, then 24, committed suicide in 2010 with Deputy Jeremy Banks’ service revolver. Because of complaints from her family, who believe that Banks murdered her, Shoar asked the FDLE to investigate.
In this wry comedic play, an adolescent Felix recalls working summers at his father’s tropical-bird theme park in Miami, where imported flamingos serve as a metaphor for his feelings of entrapment, estrangement and disconnection. Through movement, video and sound, the birds played by actors help Felix reconstruct foggy and embellished memories of his past.Ricky J. Martinez & Steven A. Chambers directed a cast that included Ivan R. Lopez, Gabriel Lose Bonilla, Michelle Antelo, Vanessa Thompson,Fidel Urbina, Sammantha Hernandez and Kristina Abreu.
(a) melding of ludicrousness and loveliness echoes throughout Jorge Ignacio Cortinas’ tale of one young man recalling his last gasp of adolescence before graduating from high school into the real world of responsibility. Awash in an acerbic and intelligent drollery, it’s Holden Caulfield and Thomas Wolfe as reinterpreted by Carl Hiaasen.
Cortinas’ scattershot script is a little too unfocused and the earnest energetic performances don’t always ring true, but there’s undeniable wit, insight and even poetry in this scruffy entry in New Theatre’s youth-oriented “Boomfrog” series...
Co-director Ricky J. Martinez and Steven A. Chambers have led the cast in finding Cortinas’ wry and wacky groove... The script is a bit confusing and the actors are not seamlessly convincing throughout the entire play. But thanks to Cortinas, Chambers and Martinez, Bird in the Hand is an intriguing little hoot.
Save some credit for Antoinette Baldwin’s costuming of those wacky flamingos and Amanda Sparehack’s fluid lighting. And those flamingos are Fidel Urbina, Sammantha Hernandez and Kristina Abreu.New Theatre presents Bird In The Hand at the Roxy Performing Arts Center through April 7, 2013.
After four years on Broadway and multiple world-wide tours, this dark and dangerous love story from Tony® and Grammy® Award nominee Frank Wildhorn returns in a stunning new pre-Broadway production that first grabbed audiences and transformed JEKYLL & HYDE into a theatrical phenomenon.Jeff Calhoun directed a cast that featured Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox.
Let’s get it out of the way: Shaggy Constantine Maroulis is far better than you expect in the title role of this Broadway-bound revival of Jekyll & Hyde ending its national tour at the Kravis Center – although that might not be saying much.
He’s totally miscast and is unlikely to get another Tony acting nomination as he did inexplicably for Rock of Ages. But he’s giving it his earnest all in the vocal division...
And second in the must-get-it-said department: R&B recording star Deborah Cox as the doomed prostitute Lucy steals the entire show right off the stage of the Kravis Center with a gorgeous voice perfectly suited to Frank Wildhorn’s pop opera score.
Director Jeff Calhoun, late of the introspective folk musical Newsies, has started out this version with some restraint as a theater piece that happens to have an addiction to power ballads. He and his design team have come up with a fresh visual style and some nice moments of staging...
But by the time the show has reached its penultimate two-faces-of-Eve showdown “Confrontation,” the whole thing has devolved into a screaming, unintelligible mess in which everything is way too much, from the wall of noise passing for words and music, to the pyrotechnic projections designed for a future arena tour, to whatever passes for acting.
Within Bricusse’s script and Wildhorn’s vision, J&H does harbor an innately exciting story, it does raise intriguing moral questions, and when done right, it should touch your heart with the tragic tale of a good man who lost his soul trying to better humanity’s lot. But this edition is simply trying to overwhelm you with vocal and visual spectacle.Jan Sjostrom reviewed for The Palm Beach Daily News:
The 1990s creation, with music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics and book by Leslie Bricusse, has been revamped to showcase the talents of rocker Constantine Maroulis in the title role and R&B singer Deborah Cox as Lucy, the prostitute who falls for Jekyll. As a result the show bowls along from one over-sized number to the other.
Admittedly, the strategy provides some megawatt moments, but ultimately the production sinks into sameness and bombast.
Maroulis fills the twin shoes of the hero and anti-hero with conviction. His transformation from the idealistic Jekyll to the malevolent Hyde is compelling, and he nimbly navigates the distance from introspective tunes such as Lost in the Darkness to full-out songs such as the raw-voiced Alive.
Cox makes a fetching Lucy, with her big, expressive voice invariably at ease, whether in come-hither mode, as in Bring On the Men, or wistfully lovelorn, as in Someone Like You. Teal Wicks, playing Emma, Jekyll’s unfortunate fiance, has a golden, seamless voice, but spoils her appeal when she affects a too plummy British accent in her spoken lines.
When Jekyll loses his moorings and degenerates into chaos, the show does, too. It’s doubtful the audience needs flashing lights, booming music, fiery projections and distorted voices to appreciate the tragedy of Jekyll’s collapse. A lighter, brainier touch would have served Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale much better.The national tour of Jekyll & Hyde plays at the Kravis Center through March 31, 2013.
Hello, this is Andie Arthur, executive director of the South Florida Theatre League with Off Stage Conversations, where I take a look at what's being talked about in the national and international theatre community. I'm sorry to have missed last week, but I've been working on a really exciting new project for the South Florida Theatre League -- Get In Bed With the Arts, which will make it's debut at the Carbonell Awards and the Theatre League's After Party on Monday Night. So once you're done being envious of Betsy Graver's hat, be sure to take a picture in bed at the South Florida Theatre League's Carbonell After Party.
Happy World Theatre Day!
Today is World Theatre Day.
Thoughts on Season Selection
Howard Sherman asks why do so many regional theatres produce the same ten plays each year? He looks at the positive and negative parts of this issue, noting that the decline in tours of major productions of plays lead to this ecosystem.
The Guardian has a piece on why theatres and other cultural workplaces need to be smarter about flexible scheduling.
Our current culture promotes underpaid and overworked staff, relying on our passion for what we do. The return on this approach is a lack of workplace diversity. Poor financial rewards for risky leadership roles result in talent leaving the sector – or going freelance.Why Feminism Is Important in Theatre
“We are thrilled to add Kenneth to our team at The Plaza Theatre,” Mr. Jacobson said in a prepared statement. “He has extensive experience in prestigious theaters, building educational and outreach programs, and under his supervision we will be creating new programs that are both entertaining and enlightening, with an emphasis on exposing young people to topical issues that affect their peers.”Kay is no stranger to South Florida theatre, or that space in particular. He appeared frequently in plays at Florida Stage, the former occupant of the theater at Plaza Del Mar. His first project will be a production of Sleepwalk, a William Mastrosimone play that deals with teen suicide.
The surprise is that I’m hard pressed to find more than one nomination this year that makes me wonder what we were smoking in the judge’s nominating meeting – almost a world’s record. No one who wins will be a head-scratching embarrassment. Everyone who takes home one of the lovely bronze eggs will richly deserve it.We've had a long run of unusually good theatre all across South Florida. Everyone should be pleased. And if you weren't nominated, and you think the awards are "just political" and that "it's all fixed," all we can do is quote Robert Anson Heinlein, who was not only way smarter than you, but way smarter than anyone you know:
"Of course the game is rigged! But don't let that stop you; you can't win if you don't play."We'll see you at the awards on April 1st. But if we don't, we won't be surprised if you're overlooked next year, too.
