University Drive Suite 350 Coral Springs FL 33065 www.personalinjury 255-7000 .com hen we first discussed photographing Louis Aguirre the longtime Deco Drive anchor who is back in South Florida at WPLG Local 10 it felt like we might need to hold a lottery to determine who would attend the shoot. Whether it s his matinee-idol looks or the discernible air of cool he so comfortably wears-- an intangible that recalls one of Aguirre s early inspirations ABC news anchor Peter Jennings-- people want to be in his orbit. But what impresses me about the former host of the nationally syndicated entertainment show The Insider has more to do with a quote by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Aguirre doesn t just buy the ticket he takes the ride. Better still he finds the nuggets of wisdom in those experiences. It s a theme that runs throughout the vignettes in our cover story on the afternoon anchor at Local 10. Case in point Aguirre s wanderlust has taken him all over the world with friends and family as well as for work. Last summer he dove into the shark-infested waters of Tahiti for The Insider as part of a behind-the-scenes look at Discovery Channel s Shark After Dark series with host Eli Roth. That episode opened his eyes to the plight of a population being diminished by alarming numbers due in large part to the tens of millions of sharks killed each year for their fins. Another episode his recent trip to Kenya opened his mind to an even deeper connection. I read a lot of spiritual books and part of that involves the idea that there is a molecular thread that binds us to the giraffe the monkey the lion a blade of grass. Intellectually I grasped that. But when you re in Africa you feel connected to all of life. I understood that I am life that is life and we re all part of this beautiful journey. It s the most resonant experience I ve ever had. Enjoy our story on Louis Aguirre as well as the rest of the January issue.

Take a moment to reflect in the main gallery where abstract painter Judi Regal s series Reflections Past & Present will show through March 3. The artist who primarily works in oils and watercolors and often can be found painting in the Everglades was inspired by the view of a city through her window and the way the light bounced off the glass panes. On the international front Cuban photographer Luis Casta eda will have his work displayed in the Kuhn Gallery also through March 3. He worked closely with the Cuban Ministry of Culture and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba as seen in his collection Danzzaria which features black-and-white photos of the ballet company. (Pictured Casa Bernarda Alba ) LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2018 25 YourTown Anthony Rizzo FAMILIAR FACES ATHLETICS Turn the Lights On Baseball season is a challenge at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where insufficient field lighting eliminates the option to host night games. The plan is to install a state-of-the-art lighting system on the newly named Anthony Rizzo Field and Rizzo himself--as in the Chicago Cubs first baseman--is stepping in to help. The 2007 alumnus donation will cover half the cost of the project which the school says will improve the safety and experience of athletes and spectators. He s aiming to raise the rest of the funds at A Night Under the Lights with Anthony Rizzo on Jan. 25 at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts. The event beginning at 7 p.m. will include dinner drinks a Q&A with Rizzo and a silent auction. Tickets are 150 and can be purchased at underthelightswithanthonyrizzo. com. Say it Loud Before she was even a high school graduate Adrianna was a Miami Dolphins cheerleader. The Parkland resident--the team doesn t share its cheerleaders last names for privacy reasons-- cheered for Saint John Paul II Academy in Boca Raton until her senior year when she took time off to prepare for the audition. Now in her fourth season with the Dolphins Adrianna who has been dancing since she was 4 years old says she still has an overwhelming appreciation for the opportunity. When I m standing during the national anthem and I look up at the stands sometimes I tear up she says. You say to yourself Wow I am a Miami Dolphins cheerleader and I m doing what I love. I m tearing up saying it because it s so cool and awesome. Adrianna also recently posed for the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Annual a published collection of photos (a cross between a swimsuit calendar and a coffee table book) of the squad members around South Florida such as in Miami Beach and Key West. Sales proceeds benefit the Miami Dolphins Foundation s post-Irma rebuilding efforts in the Keys. We re looking forward to giving back and making sure we re there for the community she says. She gave Lifestyle a glimpse into her job and her recent foray into interior design. 26 JANUARY 2018 LMGFL.COM What does being a cheerleader mean to you As a cheerleader you have to have a kind heart and love giving back to others. Have a nice soul and be positive. Smile all the time and have a good personality. ...

A portion of the sales will be donated to the Girl Scouts with a goal of 10 000. What piqued your interest about interior design It s something I ve wanted since high school. My mom studied fashion merchandising in college and she always wishes she did interior design. I ve had an eye for it since I was born--my mom would decorate the house and ask me questions and show me textiles. This year I finally said I ll regret this one day if I don t do it. I know this is something that I love and that I will cherish. It s another way I can express myself. ... Now I m studying online at the New York Institute of Art and Design. I m busy--we train from Tuesday to Thursday for about four hours a day always game-day ready with our hair and makeup done--but I like being busy and staying active. Michael Udine Commissioner s Corner The past year was filled with many events that shaped our community. There was the damage and devastation of Hurricane Irma but we also saw positives like Anthony Rizzo s sixth annual Walk Off for Cancer and the First Church Coral Springs Choir performing at Carnegie Hall. My family and I were happy to get involved with Family Central--an organization that helps more than 30 000 low-income at-risk or otherwise vulnerable children families and teachers. Service in Northwest Broward is ingrained in our residents and I could not be more proud to call it my home.

USP boasts an extensive inventory and stocks most parts at its location. If orders are made online by 4 p.m. products are shipped that day. Its YouTube channel has dozens of videos product overviews doit-yourself installations race videos and event coverage. Fast Facts Chris Green started as a typical car-obsessed teenage boy eager to make his car cool. Soon he found his way into the automotive industry growing his youthful hobby into a multimillion-dollar business. When Green was 15 his mother bought him his first car a 1995 Volkswagen Jetta. He tinkered with it and its speakers and soon he was selling 60 speaker boxes and installing them out of her garage. I made about 1 000 a week says Green who around that time competed in drag races around the country. I realized I could go all out in this service and do really well. Now 36 the Coconut Creek High School graduate is the owner of USP Motorsports a repair shop in Coral Springs (7716 Wiles Road) that specializes in Volkswagen Audi BMW and Porsche vehicles which he opened in 2000. About 10 years ago it expanded from 1 000 square feet to 5 000 square feet and added an online sales component. His company which employs nearly 20 people recently was featured on CNBC s second season of Blue Collar Millionaires a show that celebrates America s self-made successes. He didn t find success overnight however-- Green says growing the business was a struggle. He was young and wasn t being taken seriously and the car audio industry wasn t thriving like it once did. He shifted gears to offer more performance and repair work. It was very hard to sell myself to adults. I relied on word of mouth and repeat customers many of whom he met years earlier in the drag race scene he says. His ability to race European cars helped put him on the map. Green s main focus is the repair shop but he says he sees a lot of growth potential within the e-commerce business.

We take a lot of things for granted. Food. Fuel. The clothes on our back. The roof over our heads. When you re stuck in your bubble you don t see what ails our community. And then you make assumptions that aren t accurate. There are people who believe that we help individuals trying to milk the system. Or individuals who are lazy. Or people who are here illegally. They re not. Our families struggle with purchasing nutritious food. Some parents are working two three jobs just to survive. Desperation can lead you down the wrong path. When you re constantly overwhelmed and it feels like everything is against you you re eventually going to break. We want to help our families avoid that breaking point. What we do as an organization doesn t fill me with pride because to me we have to take care of our community our families our kids our seniors. But there is some satisfaction when you re at a distribution site and you see a child bite into an apple or open up a banana. That s when you know that you re having an impact on someone s life. When you make food accessible to everybody--through distribution coupons community gardens--then you ll see society getting better. How can we help families make better use of their remaining resources once we ve helped them with food We show them how to fill out an application for food stamps. Or apply for Florida KidCare. We teach computer literacy. Nutrition classes. We re seeing families become empowered and climb out of their situations. Am I here because the world is supposed to serve me Or am I here to serve the world Different people believe in varying degrees of those philosophies. My belief is that we re here to serve. It s what I ve always believed.

A name means so much explains Kurzawinski the group s beverage director. It resonates with people s minds. ... When you see a fun name it evokes a memory. You can build a cocktail from there. On a recent afternoon he was seated at the bar at The Apothecary 330 (330 Himmarshee St. Suite 101 Fort Lauderdale) fixated on his computer. With tinsel draped along the walls he was finalizing the lounge s first holiday cocktail list featuring six festive libations available throughout the winter. We re going kind of all-in this year--we wanted to push it a bit he says of the new menu and seasonal decor growing around him. The former Apothecary general manager is implementing his love of seasonality and fresh cocktails across JEY s 12 restaurants and bars. Just don t call him--or his bar staff--a mixologist. It s just semantics but the word mixologist to me still rings like pretentiousness Kurzawinski says. I m just a humble bartender who enjoys a great cocktail. In the season of not taking himself too seriously he concocted Rum Rudolph Rum a play on Chuck Berry s Run Rudolph Run Christmas tune with aged rum egg whites and spiced cocoa tea bitters XXX Mas Tequila inspired by Sammy Hagar s Mas Tequila a tequila-twist on an Old Fashioned made lively with burlesque bitters (think spiced cranberry and a ai berry) and Wrapper s Delight a clarified milk punch named after the 1980s hip-hop song Rapper s Delight which features several liquors from absinthe to rum to everything in between he says. The latter cocktail is served on a platter he adds and presented with shortbread cookies on the side--a grown-up version of Santa s milk and cookies. If a customer can spit out the lyrics he ll give them 2 off the drink. My mind works in evil ways when it comes to cocktails he says. We re big little kids around here.

Now in its second year One Door East (620 S. Federal Highway) blends worldly flavors with an undeniably hip community vibe. There really isn t anything like it in Fort Lauderdale Rocchio says. Being well-versed in the culinary scene through his upscale restaurant Valentino Cucina Italiana Rocchio uses his latest project as an experimentation ground with exceptional results. The sister restaurants share space the entrance to One Door East literally being one door to the east of Valentino. Its global tapas concept always was meant to be more approachable the menu an ever-evolving sample of different tastes. It s gone a little bit more Asian which is something that I discovered--that I really like those flavors whether Japanese Chinese Korean or Thai Rocchio explains. It s a lot of beautiful new ideas for me. There are plenty of collaborative ideas as well thanks to contributions from two more chefs Albert Diaz and Raymond Li Jr. Rocchio adds Valentino s Mediterranean inspiration to the mix creating an atmosphere that evokes multiple artists adding touches to one canvas. There s really no boundaries Rocchio says. If you have the right talented people in there then you can allow that creativity to go. Though the menu changes regularly with up to four new specials each week there are constants such as crackling shrimp with Thai chili sauce and wild mushroom gyoza with ponzu and spicy sesame oil. That still leaves plenty of room for play. The paella hotpot for instance incorporates flavors that speak to Li s international influences--but as the sous chef shares there s more to this inspired dish. 42 JANUARY 2018 LMGFL.COM The hotpot I cook my rice in the hotpot which is traditionally Chinese Li says. You have a broth in a pot and then you have raw meat raw vegetables whatever you like and you cook it there on the table all in one pot. The Japanese have another way where they cook it on a stove and this is a take on that. An extra pop The dish has pickled ramps from last spring that we ve preserved for a little more than six months. The rice For regular paella [the Spanish version] you use short-grained rice as well Li says. This is a Japanese version of the rice. It s called Matsuri Golden Koshihikari a very premium rice that they use for sushi. Ocean to table The royal red The surprise of saffron The saffron dashi adds the traditional flavor of the paella which has the saffron in it. Then it has an unconventional twist because it uses a Japanese stock which is a dashi. A blending of techniques I use a lot of French techniques Spanish techniques but I use a lot of Asian products. My rice is a Japanese rice. Instead of using a fish stock I use a Japanese fish stock and then the white ponzu piquillo is a mix of Spanish flavors and Japanese flavors. prawns come from the Gulf of Mexico [his source] goes out every weekend to bring us the freshest possible seafood.

LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2018 43 Fashion O The Galabeya top from Florida Cotton Co. WITH THE LAUNCH OF FLORIDA COTTON CO. ONE MAN HOPES TO CHANGE OUR PERSPECTIVE ON CLOTHING AND CULTURE BY KEVIN KAMINSKI Style Statement n paper the r sum dots don t connect. Why is someone who created and sold his own technology firm early in his prolific business career suddenly selling Egyptian cotton pullovers online What can this renowned executive--someone who served in top leadership positions for companies that ranged from commercial real estate to a home-utilities startup--possibly know about Bedouin shawls and caftans By his own admission Riad Shalaby didn t launch the website for Florida Cotton Co. because of his infinite knowledge of the fashion industry. But his business and family background did provide the foundation for an online clothing venture with big-picture aspirations. After spending the better part of five years as CEO of Fort Lauderdale-based Reunion Group which markets consumer-service programs to its clients customers Shalaby left the company in July 2015. That same year he traveled to Egypt to visit his sister. His family had deep roots in the Middle East--his greatgrandparents on his mother s side left Syria in 1900 and settled in upstate New York his parents met in Egypt and his father a marine architect and chief engineer worked for the Egyptian government after World War II. Shalaby saw the number of displaced Syrians struggling to survive in Egypt. He also saw the fine silks and fabrics used by impoverished designers to create striking casualwear. He brought samples of the clothing to his girlfriend in Weston (where Shalaby lives part-time) and asked if she thought there was a market for such products in the United States. She did. So Shalaby spent two years calling on his directto-consumer marketing connections at home--and developing relationships with designers and artisans in Egypt. In October 2017 he flipped the switch on floridacottonco.com and its imported tops beach pants cover-ups Mediterranean ponchos and more. It s clothing that fills a multifunctional purpose in a woman s wardrobe says Shalaby 56. If you look at the Bedouin shawls you can see that they re being worn as sarongs scarves shoulder wraps. The clothes we ve selected--the caftans the tops the pants--can all be worn in different contexts. Along the way Florida Cotton is putting food on the table of its vendors and workers in Egypt--and it hopes to do the same in the U.S. Through an initiative set to launch this year a portion of the sales proceeds will benefit food banks around the country. Still Shalaby sees his company making a difference in an even broader sense. The plan is to expand into other countries and bring those products to our site he says. There are places all over the world where people are extraordinarily talented but not necessarily economically advanced. They share our values but not our geography. My vision is to use Florida Cotton to knock down cultural barriers that are [detrimental] to the way we view the world.

SOLOMON T he Miami Design District is a destination for luxury shopping and celebrity chef-driven restaurants but with the Dec. 1 opening of the three-level Institute of Contemporary Art Miami the northeast Miami neighborhood got a hefty boost as an arts district too. Craig Robins president and CEO of Miami-based real estate company Dacra and the developer of the flourishing district says culture always was part of his plan when he began acquiring and redeveloping properties in the historic Buena Vista neighborhood two decades ago. Before it was the Design District the area between 36th and 41st streets between Miami Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard was home to furniture factories and showrooms and known as Decorators Row. (Years before that it was a pineapple plantation.) Art and design are integral to the historic identity of the Miami Design District and to our vision Robins said. A contemporary art museum in the Design District began three years ago when ICA Miami set up shop in a temporary space that Robins offered rent-free in his Moore Building a former furniture showroom built in 1921. It was a few months after the former board of trustees of the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami split from the city-run institution and began creating what would be known as ICA. Irma Braman former MOCA board chair is now co-chair of the board of trustees for ICA Miami. The timing couldn t have been more perfect. Just ahead of Miami Art Week 2017 the privately funded ICA opened at 61 NE 41st St. Braman and her husband Norman who are local philanthropists and art collectors funded the design and construction of the new ICA. Miami Design District Associates a partnership between Robins company and L Real Estate a private-equity fund dedicated to luxury retail developments donated the land on which the 37 500-square-foot art museum was built. The space includes a 15 000-square-foot outdoor sculpture garden. One of ICA Miami s missions is to offer its exhibitions to the public at no charge. Many of its educational programs will be provided free too. One of the barriers to access to a cultural institution is admission. I think this tears down at least one of those barriers says Ellen Salpeter who was named ICA Miami s director in 2015 after serving as director of external affairs of the Jewish Museum in New York since 2012. We made a real commitment to have open access so that when you visit the Design District whether ICA Miami is your destination or you come to do something else you can come into the museum at no charge she says. Salpeter says the building s location works with the shopping district s pedestrian traffic. Already there are plans for the next phase of the museum which include 48 JANUARY 2018 LMGFL.COM PHOTO BY IWAN BAAN Work from artist Anna Oppermann a visitor store in the lobby with grab-and-go foods cold-brew coffee and Champagne. There also will be partnerships with nearby businesses-- perhaps a dinner in the sculpture garden with one of the restaurants here for example Salpeter says. Yet the art remains essential. Salpeter is excited about the inaugural program as she talks about The Everywhere Studio which brings together more than 50 artists from the past five decades. One inclusion is a work by Edward and Nancy Kieholz which is part of ICA Miami s permanent collection and what she considers an example of what the museum s holdings will mean to visitors. The significant sculpture by the couple The Soup Course at the She-She Caf (1982) will be on display as part of the exhibition. ICA director The museum Ellen Salpeter has borrowed from collectors other works by the couple for the exhibit. This will help tell a story to visitors so that they may gain more insight as to why this work is in our collection and offer a broader perspective of our collection as a whole says Salpeter added that ICA Miami s contemporary collection has a specific time period--from the early 1960s to present. If you know nothing about contemporary art or if you re a savvy art connoisseur we want you to discover something take a look at what we re doing and be excited by whatever attracts you. Robins believes art should be shared and experienced. We want to make art accessible to everyone he says. To that end the district holds public art tours led by Arts Encounters founder Margery Gordon. Participants may reserve a spot online but walkups are welcome. The free tours are held during the the monthly Sunday Family Day and on the last Wednesday of every month during The Market atMDD. Check miamidesigndistrict.net art-tours for dates. The district also unveiled several installations during ICA Miami s grand opening in December including a new public sculpture initiative in collaboration with the museum. The annual rotation began with the installation of two monumental sculptures by artist Sol LeWitt. Also a 1988 outdoor sculpture by artist Kenny Scharf once part of Robins personal collection was moved from his Miami Beach home to Rooftop Garden (175 NE 40th St.) to join the district s permanent collection.

For more than an hour he points to stitches in time--his broadcasting break at Telemundo his stretch on Fox & Friends his decade-long run on WSVN s Deco Drive his reluctance to give up on his Hollywood dreams--as part of a greater tapestry one filled with lessons learned. At 51 Aguirre recognizes that there s an accumulation of wisdom that comes with age. But there s also something to be said for embracing your truth when the moment presents itself. By his own admission the University of Miami graduate is not the same person who left South Florida in 2014 to host the nationally syndicated entertainment program The Insider. Maybe it s being in one of the anchor chairs at Local 10 a full circle of sorts in his complicated-yet-prolific career as a television broadcaster. Perhaps it s that night in October at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach baring his soul before a roomful of people ready to welcome him with open arms. It takes a long time to be comfortable in your own skin he says. When you learn to love yourself that s when life loves you back. That the ruggedly handsome Aguirre is so comfortable in his skin both professionally and personally speaks to a journey rich with experience one guided by talent charisma good fortune and at times much-needed introspection. In some ways it s a journey that begins on his parents back porch. As a child Aguirre loves the variety shows and stars of that era--Carol Burnett Sonny and Cher Donny and Marie. After tropical storm winds blow out the patio screen one year the back porch suddenly feels more like a stage. So he seizes on the opportunity. On Sundays while my parents slept in I would put on the Louis Aguirre show for my [three younger] sisters he says. Every show was different depending on what TV programs were inspiring me. One week I d re-enact an episode of The Six Million Dollar Man the next week it would be Star Trek. I was a bit of a ham. But eventually I knew this would play out in some way shape or form. When his parents who were born in Cuba but met for the first time as students at UM push back against their son s interest in acting encouraging him instead to study law Aguirre seeks a compromise. He earns his undergraduate degree in communications (and a second degree in French) with an emphasis on broadcast journalism. Not only does he like being in front of the camera but he s a natural. Instead of sending tapes to local stations after graduating however Aguirre follows his girlfriend at the time to New York. She is convinced that he can be a successful fashion model. For eight months Aguirre has the time of my life working odd jobs modeling and auditioning for soap operas and commercials. And then his girlfriend tells him that she s pregnant. I remember flying home and telling my parents Aguirre says. Their message was You can t be Mr. Party Animal in New York City if you re going to be a father. That was the fire under my ass to get a broadcasting job. Two stations offer him on-air reporter positions one in Fort Myers and Telemundo in Miami. He takes the Telemundo job in April 1989 at age 22 figuring he and his girlfriend can live with his parents and have a home for their child. The only hitch in that plan Aguirre it turns out isn t the father. I had no idea then why I was living it but now I see how necessary that episode was in my life he says. It pushed me into television. The only problem is that deep down Aguirre still wants to act. He goes on to Washington D.C. as a Capitol Hill correspondent for TV Mart before returning to South Florida for three years during his first incarnation at Local 10. But when a fledgling entertainment show called Extra offers Aguirre a job as a correspondent in the early 1990s he sees a chance to move to Los Angeles and keep his Hollywood dreams alive. It s a pattern that repeats itself over the next decade up until he lands a full-time anchor spot on Deco Drive in 2003. Even as he snags plum TV gigs in New York (like working for A Current Affair ) Aguirre continues to hedge his career bets auditioning for--and often landing--acting roles. His credits include stints on the soap operas Guiding Light and All My Children as well as guest shots on the TV shows JAG Burn Notice and Sex and the City. In the early 2000s Aguirre briefly goes all in as an actor moving to Los Angeles again after receiving a call from his agent about a potential series in search of a male lead--think Miami Vice except set in the late 1990s. Instead he spends two years scrambling for work. I had this almost meteoric rise from college every job I went after I got he says. Even in New York I was working left and right as an actor. In L.A. I became just another face. It was humbling to see my savings dwindle. Part of me loved being a struggling actor. But it also taught me a lot about myself. I learned that my happiness didn t depend on my success. It was how I felt on the inside. It s 1996 and Aguirre is the first face that viewers see when Fox News Channel launches. He s a co-anchor on a morning show called Fox & Friends. But by his third year something is gnawing at him. He s being prompted to present dialogue that just doesn t sit right. Living in New York and allowing myself to explore all aspects of myself taught me about who I was he says. When I looked in the mirror I realized that there was a conflict at Fox. I couldn t honestly and authentically be talent for that network. It s not who I was on the inside. Aguirre leaves Fox & Friends in 1999. That same year he begins a relationship with someone he first met casually in 1993 during his Local 10 days. Nearly 20 years later the two are still a couple. hit me Aguirre says. People started coming up to thank me tears in their eyes. You have no idea the power of those words they would say. That I stood up in that room in such a public way ... that night was monumental for Matt as well. For someone who s been in the public eye for three decades Aguirre keeps his relationship status out of the gossip pages. Naturally that prompts speculation. But if he and Matt MacDonald are a secret it s an open one. The two attend events together they re photographed together and the founder of MacDonald Design Associates in Miami is Uncle Matt to Aguirre s nephews and nieces. At the same time I never got up on a soapbox Aguirre says. I never had the interview. No one asked me. Though he says MacDonald has pressed him to be more vocal about his sexuality Aguirre is reluctant. I wasn t going to start a newscast by saying Good evening everybody I m Louis Aguirre--and I m gay. I knew an opportunity would come. It does. In October as he is about to present the National Leadership Award to Gloria Estefan at the National LGBTQ Task Force gala Aguirre looks at the faces in the crowd at the Fontainebleau and experiences a wave of hypocrisy. How can he take the stage here and not embrace the love that he and Matt share Before he hands Estefan her award Aguirre announces for the first time in public that he is a proud gay man. It wasn t until after the gala that it It s Thanksgiving 2016 and Aguirre is home for the holidays when his phone blows up. Fidel Castro is dead. It s the moment that Cuban Americans have been waiting their lives to see. Aguirre instinctively heads to Little Havana with friends the streets are filled with people banging pots and pans and waving the Cuban flag. Aguirre desperately wants to hijack a microphone from one of the local TV stations and tell the story. But he can t. He s in his second year as host of The Insider the job for which he left Miami and Deco Drive --and yet another opportunity to rub elbows with Hollywood celebrities. His heart aches. It s a familiar feeling one that reminds him of Fox & Friends. A few months later it s announced that The Insider will cease production that summer. There was a subliminal message sent into the universe Aguirre says. I loved interviewing the celebrities that I admired. But with that comes reporting on whether Kylie Jenner s lips are real. ... To talk about Kim Kardashian s jewels being heisted like it s the most important story of the day I didn t believe the words coming out of my mouth anymore. When Bill Pohovey vice president of news at Local 10 reaches out about returning to WPLG Aguirre has just one condition He wants to report the news. There s too much happening in the world to stand on the sidelines. And so he returns to South Florida having found his truth in more ways than one. He s happier than ever personally. And he s back in the game as an afternoon news anchor. Back he says where he belongs. Life has pulled me in this direction for a reason. There are important stories to tell right now. So this chance to come back to WPLG and do this Thank you thank you thank you.

It s a picture that was worth a thousand words to the feds and ultimately 10 months in prison for Weisman. The iconic image of Frank Sinatra with notorious mobsters including Carlo Gambino and Jimmy Fratianno--taken backstage in the late 1970s at the Westchester Premier Theater in Tarrytown New York which Weisman oversaw and helped to launch--would lead to Weisman s prosecution for bank and stock fraud and racketeering. It also opened the door to a two-decade run as manager and friend to Sinatra during the home stretch of his legendary career. The straight-talking Weisman--who also managed Liza Minnelli Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorm and Don Rickles among other entertainers--invited Lifestyle to his home in Parkland for a no-holds-barred discussion about his life with Ol Blue Eyes. You never told prosecutors what they wanted to hear regarding Sinatra and his mob ties. Do you think about how staying quiet changed your life If I only knew I was going to do 10 months I would ve been the happiest guy in the world. When I gave myself up (in January 1981) I was looking at 78 months. The prosecutor obviously convinced the judge that if they pressured me with sentencing I would give up the whole mob. It was such a joke. What they really wanted was Sinatra and his attorney Mickey Rudin. The wise guys who were around the theater at that time thought I would testify against them. As far as Sinatra and Rudin I drove to see them the day after being interviewed by the FBI making sure no one followed me. I think they were convinced that I wouldn t talk. And I think word spread around the entertainment business very quickly that I was a stand-up guy. In the end that was the turning point the idea that I wouldn t rat anyone out. Also that all the performers got paid [before the theater went bankrupt]. Sinatra demanded such loyalty from the people in his circle didn t he Loyalty was No. 1 with Sinatra. No. 2 he loved people who knew what they were doing. When you go around the world as many times as we did you don t always get perfection with stagehands and musicians. He never freaked out. When he would come off the stage I d hand him a towel and tell him Great show. The really sensational shows he d share a superlative. But every once in a while he d say Where the [expletive] did you get those strings I miss that man every day. There are few people I ve met in my life who even come close to putting his shoes on. Sinatra was a champion for the underdog. There was nobody who was worthy of it that he didn t want to help. ... [Boxers] Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson at the end of their lives Sinatra helped them survive. He gave them money he made sure they had the right doctors. If they needed his airplane he would send it to them. I m talking about a guy who looked you in the eyes put those blues on you and you knew he was telling you the truth. There was no [expletive]. There are so many stories in the book about Sinatra in his element with a Jack Daniels in hand being around friends. Are those the times he loved the most His absolute favorite time in life was on stage. It was the one place that man was never depressed. He loved the audiences. Every Sinatra show to me was like the World Series. The difference between the first game and the seventh game was whether or not the crowd came to play. Given his family dynamics with his wife on one side and his kids on the other were you apprehensive When he asked me to be executor of his estate I almost fell over. I told him I was really honored but I asked him why. He said Because no one else knows where every [expletive] thing is buried. And he was right. Punctuality is a running theme in the book. It meant everything to Sinatra. Why It was about respect. There were times when he made me sweat over five minutes. Especially when he was doing shows with someone opening for him and the rows in front weren t full. I didn t want people moving around and [finding their seats] during the opening act. He would say The ticket says 8 o clock. For the people already in their seats why should they have to wait another five minutes because other people are late Forget starting a show on time. He hated getting off a plane and driving a long distance. Listen airports are not in the middle of cities. But he used to [get angry] if a drive lasted more than 25 minutes. Was there anyone who could say no to Sinatra I don t know of anyone ever saying no to him. You couldn t really do that with Sinatra. At that point it was going to become confrontational and he wasn t going to lose a battle with you or anyone else. Did he struggle with his mortality as his friends began to die We were at the Waldorf in New York when Sammy Davis Jr. passed away [in 1990]. And that was the first time I saw him cry like that. He wasn t thinking about his mortality at that point he was thinking about his friend. I wasn t around in [the Rat Pack days] and I didn t even hear half the stories. The half that I did hear those guys had wild times. When Dean Martin passed away in 1995 I spoke to Sinatra over the phone and he was upset. But he was uncontrollable with Sammy. Sammy idolized Sinatra and the Boss had a tremendous influence on him. When Sammy lost his eye Frank was the first one there. When Sammy went bad in the 1980s with the drugs Sinatra told him When you get cleaned up call me. When you re playing with that [expletive] don t be around me. Toward the end I think Sinatra was sorry that he still wasn t singing. I think that s when he started to contemplate his death. I knew he wouldn t make it long without having something to do. [Editor s note Sinatra died May 14 1998.] Your passage about Donald Trump--you were so upset by his comments during a deal gone sour involving his Taj Mahal casino and your entertainers that you grabbed his tie--was in the news. Anything about his presidency based on your dealings with him that surprises you I can feel it now just talking about it I was boiling. I could ve gotten the [expletive] beaten out of me but I doubt it. At that time I think I would ve [taken] him. I would ve done the time and been out by now. I could never remember being in that much of a sweat that s how aggravated I was. My son pulled me off [Trump]. I had to wake up Sinatra on the West Coast to explain the problem. He goes You don t have a problem. Either go back upstairs and tell him to [expletive] himself or give me the number and I ll do it. I said Thanks boss. Go back to sleep. I went back to Trump s office and told him. So no nothing surprises me. This to me is so out of whack so disturbing. Morally I don t understand how he got elected. The only answer I have is that morally his opponent was the worst candidate who could have run against him.
