(Raise your hand if you are a disbe-Bieber.) That s one reason this issue s cover story of Pat and Anna Cleveland is so inspirational. There is the superficial reason to love Pat At 60 she seems to have lost none of the sexiness and beauty she had in the 1960s when she paved the way for black super models. Ladies just because you are a little older doesn t mean you still can t work it and turn heads. She s inspirational for being multitalented whether it s bringing theater performance dance moves to the catwalk running a modeling agency or writing poetry. She s inspirational for overcoming racist attitudes in the 1960s such as segregated bathrooms that weren t open to black models on tour with her. She is inspirational for surviving the 1970s hanging out with the likes of Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger without falling prey to the excesses that claimed too many people. She is inspirational for putting her modeling career aside marrying Paul van Ravenstein and raising a family Anna and her brother Noel who has also done modeling. She is inspirational for nurturing her daughter s talents. There s a strong local connection now with Anna living in Delray Beach after having been born in the Netherlands and growing up in Italy.

The city recently set up an electric vehicle ( EV ) charging station for public use next to City Hall. The Chargepoint CT4000 EV charging station is a multicar charging station that is free to anyone regardless of residence. The 5 000 machine resembles an oldfashioned gas pump but has hoses for two cars. ChargePoint is the largest and most open EV charging network in the world with more than 15 000 charging locations. Their open network is utilized by many leading EV hardware makers and encourages all EV charging manufacturers to join. For more information about the charging station call the Public Works Department at 954.757.4119. F WHEN THE TIDE IS HIGH Keren Bolter a research assistant at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Center for environmental studies caught the attention of NBC s Dateline which did a major piece on rising sea levels. We don t have time to argue. It s here. It s happening and we need to do something and there s an urgency about it she told Dateline. Bolter who was part of a Fort Lauderdale panel discussion on sea level rise has not only mapped the potential impact of flooding but surveyed the public about how well they perceived the risks. She found that not enough residents of southwest Broward recognize their low elevation which puts them at risk of flooding even though they aren t near the coast. Erosion from Superstorm Sandy and high spring tides that spilled onto Las Olas Boulevard may be providing a wakeup call. Panelist Jason L i e c h t y environmental projects coordinator for Broward County has heard anecdotal reports that some business owners are already leery about expanding given the uncertainties. There was some nervous laughter in the room when Lifestyle asked about the potential impact on luxury real estate along the coast. That s kind of the 64 000 question for our efforts Liechty said.

(BOYFRIEND STYLE) THE PERFECT PAIR OF PANTS I love skinny jeans but it s nice to change it up every now and then with the ever-so-popular boyfriend pants. They re cool comfortable and classy and if you pair them with the right top like say a beautiful body hugging bedazzled white tank you ve easily got a sexy sophisticated look. This is the type of trend that ll never go out of style simply because it s so reminiscent of boyfriends gone by.

Light looking yet important. My favorite is a rare collection of mixed rose cuts surrounded by little micro set frames where the shorter necklace nests with the longer one. It is very ethereal and can be dressed up or down. It has amazing presence looking both important and yet very wearable. Another favorite of mine is a long diamond bezel set necklace mixed with bezel set emerald cuts. This is also something that is unusual. I would then put on a wide diamond open link cuff. Since the links are opened it is the perfect look for the hot summer. Add a white croco strap watch to the other hand for the perfect summer look. Other summer styles usually have fresh soft colors Blue topaz lemon citrine pink tourmaline or all pale shades of sapphire. You can always mix pieces with color and classic diamond pieces. Levinson Jewelers 888 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale 954.462.8880 www.levinsonjewelers. com Tribal influences contemporary floral prints Tees with a message athletic wear that goes from daytime to nighttime are what s trending for summer. Although as Floridians our extreme winter consists of sun drenched days and balmy nights we too grow tired of our wintery wardrobes. Time to change the color palette to nudes dusty pink and coral. Go for the classic look A flowing linen pant coupled with a tank in pastels and bright colors along with a linen blouse. Add a long chain with a vintage coin pendant and you have an easy summer look. Upscale athletic wear has emerged as one of the strongest summer trends because of its versatility. Together with a message Tee vegan leather or suede top just grab your denim jacket and you have the perfect combination of practical and edgy. While statement necklaces still are the perfect pairing with a white Tee those who are in the know are choosing to cuff up whether it s a wide gold statement cuff or leather embellished they give attitude to any summer top.

LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER queens of the catwalk BY LESLIE KRAFT BURKE 32 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM Pat (left) is wearing Gucci and Christian Louboutin shoes and Anna (right) is wearing Valentino and Jimmy Choo shoes from Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale. LMGFL.COM MAY 2014 33 pat cleveland was a pioneer among black models after she was discovered at the age of 14 on the New York subway. She is famed for her lustrous hair which she calls her magic carpet and hailed as an innovator with dance moves and performance art that earned her the nickname Queen of the Catwalk. In our celebration of Mother s Day learn how Pat became a devoted mom and mentored her daughter to become a new generation fashion icon. For most 4-year-olds the prospect of opening one of the most celebrated shows in fashion by walking down Rome s Spanish Steps dressed as Charlie Chaplin s little orphan sidekick would be daunting. But Anna knew that at the bottom of the steps she would be joining her mother the iconic model Pat Cleveland who was dressed as Charlie Chaplin and ready to take her hand. She told me always to smile from the inside out says Anna now 24 a statuesque and ephemeral beauty who is following in her mother s impressive stiletto-steps as a model. I remembered what she said particularly then and when the orchestra played (Charlie Chaplin s signature song Smile ) the moment came to life. Anna joined her mother again in a celebration of spring fashion at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale on April 9 a by-invitation-only luncheon event emceed by Pat who is still enjoying her modeling career and apparently eternal youth 50 years after starting it. At the show Anna and other models moved to the beat of 70s-inspired music to show off the newest creations by Oscar de la Renta Jason Wu Valentino Roberto Cavalli Herve Leger and others. Both Anna and Pat are quite familiar with these designers and plenty of others many of whom are more like old friends to them than the storied titans of fashion. DISCOVERED ON THE SUBWAY Pat s love affair with fashion began as a teenager in the late 1960s when she started to design her own clothes.

LMGFL.COM MAY 2014 41 Willy Wonka OF SOUTH FLORIDA BY KEVIN GALE MEET THE 42 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM The outcome of this story might be better than winning the golden ticket in Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Fred Meltzer not only got the job of running Hoffman s Chocolate but found love too. Meltzer started his career about as far from the world of chocolate as one might imagine working for a boutique CPA firm that catered to real estate clients in Washington D.C. He came to South Florida in 1989 as a controller for Nelson Peltz and Michael Swerdlow who took over Hollywood Inc. the original developer of the Broward city. Meltzer subsequently carved out a career helping investors buy out mid-sized companies and then running them. By 1997 though he wanted to be a stay-at-homedad for his daughter Brea who was born the year before. He had learned about Hoffman s Chocolates a couple of years earlier but hadn t pursued a position. Accountant Gary Gerson urged Meltzer to take another look so in September Meltzer said he would work six months for free. Paul Hoffman and his daughter Sandra would get to know Meltzer and vice versa. The one thing I was most impressed by when I did my due diligence is where they sourced their products Meltzer says. The apricot and pineapple are sourced from Australia. They are the best products in the world. The nuts are bought direct from the farms. We have them within days of being harvested. After juggling two jobs often working at Hoffman s until 1 a.m. after his regular gig Meltzer bought out Paul Hoffman s shares. Sandra who was executive vice president stayed on and continued to play a key role with expertise that stems from her marketing degree at FAU. Look at the packaging and gifts and designs she comes up with Meltzer says. That sets our companies apart. Hoffman s went on in 2009 to acquire Good Fortunes which makes giant gourmet fortune cookies and in 2010 acquired Boca Bons which makes gourmet bonbons that are sold online and in major retailers including Macy s Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue. The new online-oriented businesses helped balance the company out as brick and mortar retailers were hit by the Great Recession Meltzer says. CHOCOLATE AND LOVE At first Sandra and Fred just had a business relationship but that evolved into a friendship. Fred said he admired her for the care she gave to her daughter Christine who has Down Syndrome. They both ended up in the dating scene and would WE HAVE BEEN VERY SPECIFIC WITH THE SOURCE OF WHERE WE GET THE CHOCOLATE TO CONTINUE TO BECOME MORE STRINGENT SAYS FRED MELTZER. console each other about their misadventures. The turning point was probably about five years ago Fred says. We usually would go to charity events together. Hoffman s would be involved with hundreds of charities a year. There was this one event that was at the Breakers LMGFL.COM MAY 2014 43 I RECOGNIZED THAT WE COULD ACQUIRE GOOD BRANDS THAT PRODUCE A GOOD PRODUCT THAT NEED CAPITAL AND LEADERSHIP FOR GROWTH WHICH WE CAN PROVIDE SAYS JARETT LEVAN. for growth which we can provide Levan says. In January BBX Sweet Holdings acquired Williams & Bennett a Boynton Beach company that produces Belgian chocolate products sold by boutiques big box chains department stores resorts corporate customers and private label brands. Levan says We are actively talking to several other companies both in Florida and across the country. BBX can now provide the capital to fuel further growth of Hoffman s which has 15 000-square-feet of manufacturing space in Greenacres City. FOCUS ON QUALITY Meltzer says the company is cognizant of global conditions that buffet the chocolate supply chain. We are just as conscious as anyone else when it comes to proper farming and not using children in connection with the farming activities he says. We have been very specific with the source of where we get the chocolate to continue to become more stringent. Paul Hoffman continues to consult with the company on new products and the company s production manager has been around for 16 years. Meltzer says the company is committed to upholding the quality that has earned kudos from the Wall Street Journal and HGTV over the years. A lot of the business is labor intensive such as double dipping the chocolate-covered pretzels eaten by the last three presidents Meltzer notes. Everything is hand rolled hand cut and hand formed. One hot product these days is Coconut Cashew Crunch a brittle type of product stuffed with cashews and coconut. It s now in 120 locations and Meltzer expects to enlarge that to over 1 000. Expansion may include going beyond the five company stores which Levan says is under study. Hoffman s has experimented with holiday season pop-ups like the one at the Bank of America building in downtown Fort Lauderdale a few months ago. Business it seems is sweet indeed. and for some reason we weren t seated at the same table. I kept looking at her with her date and she kept looking at me with my date. They talked about it afterwards. We each said I don t know how you feel but we each said we would be open to dating Meltzer says. In May 2011 they got married. The happy story continued. Fred s daughter is now 18 and was admitted to the University of Florida while Christine is one of the best employees at Hoffman s Meltzer says proudly. In February 2013 Hoffman s was approached by BBX Capital of Fort Lauderdale which holds some of the former assets of BankAtlantic. The two parties were well acquainted since BankAtlantic had Hoffman s as a client for more than 12 years says Jarett Levan the banker s former president and the current president of BBX Capital which inherited some assets from BankAtlantic. I knew at the time that we wanted to be a consolidator of candy and confections says Levan. The business is not only fun but there s a gap for mid-sized companies between the mom and pops and the industry behemoths. I recognized that we could acquire good brands that produce a good product that need capital and leadership 44 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL & MEDICAL CENTER PRESENTS YOUR MISSION SUMMER FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY Summer Safety and Emergency Tips Teddy Bear Clinic -- get a teddy bear or bring your own for a medical checkup Interactive Activities for Kids Children s Entertainment Bounce House Face Painting Refreshments Giveaways FREE ADMISSION SAFE SUMMER SATURDAY MAY 31 2014 11 A.M. 2 P.M.

CEO Henderson Behavioral Health One of the biggest untreated problems in the United Steve Ronik relationships to employment is mental may surprise you. www.hendersonbh.org LMGFL.COM MAY 2014 49 The sheriff calls himself an old-fashioned street cop but the high-profile position always brings plenty of scrutiny BY KEVIN GALE MEET real the SCOTT ISRAEL Broward County has had its share of colorful characters as sheriff. In 1927 Sheriff Paul Bryan was arrested on federal bootlegging charges. Walter Clark served from 1933 to 1951 but admitted to the federal Kefauver Commission that he profited from illegal gambling. Nick Navarro gained national attention in the 1980s by starring in the first season of Cops and having a crime lab that cooked up crack cocaine to use in stings. Ken Jenne resigned in 2007 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and mail fraud. So there s no wonder that current Sheriff Scott Israel has been under the media microscope since assuming office in 2013. An ethics complaint said Israel should have declared a higher value for a trip his family took with campaign supporter Robert Pereira on his yacht. The Florida Commission on Ethics didn t take any action because Israel relied on advice from his attorney who said 1 500 was equivalent to cruise ship pricing and the sheriff lacked experience as an elected official. Before the ethics commission ruled Israel said Just the fact that some people looked at it a certain way ... if I had it to do over again I wouldn t have gone on the trip. Afterwards he said If you have a problem with the valuation that was OK. I was in safe harbor because I acted according to what the attorney told me to do. Some other reports about Israel have been wildly inaccurate including one that said he was in a luxury suite at the Super Bowl with Pereira when he was actually at a Sheriffs Association conference. ALL AMERICAN BOY Going beyond the headlines and meeting Israel in person one is struck by how the former college quarterback is a grown up version of the All American Boy. Israel and his wife Susan who helps manage his packed schedule have a busy family life with three triplets Brett Blake and Blair. Brett was the junior starting quarterback 50 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM Susan and Scott Israel with their bulldog Tank LMGFL.COM MAY 2014 51 The Israels with their triplets Blair Blake and Brett 52 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM for Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School Blake was a midfielder for the lacrosse team and a safety on the football team and Blair was a sprinter on the track team before hurting her foot. It s not easy being the sheriff s kid Brett says You have to be on your best behavior. Susan Israel says her husband is a dedicated father and tells how he used to pack up the triplets and take them to the gym when they were infants so she could have a break. The girls would go My husband won t even watch one. Does he have any brothers REACHING THE TOP Scott Israel previously served as a commander at the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and chief of the North Bay Village Police Department but the sheriff s department is much bigger. The department controls just over half of the county s 3.7 billion budget and has 6 000 members. While working for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department a fleeing suspect knocked into him and they both fell down a flight of stairs. SECOND RUN FOR OFFICE Israel lost in his first run for sheriff s office in 2008 against Republican Al Lamberti who had been appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist to replace Jenne. Lamberti blasted Israel with negative campaign ads and some political observers credited political strategist Roger Stone with helping out. However Lamberti made some enemies in Broward s Democratic dominated politics. Ron Gunzberger the son of county commissioner Sue Gunzberger led Israel s second successful campaign in 2012. Israel told 28 members of Lamberti s staff that they would be dismissed if they didn t resign and Lamberti authorized the payment of 4.3 million to 53 departing employees. The place kind of got gutted. Who knows IT S CHALLENGING REWARDING IT S TOUGH. I DON T THINK ANYONE CAN ANTICIPATE THE PACE OF BEING SHERIFF. It s challenging rewarding it s tough Israel says. I don t think anyone can anticipate the pace of being sheriff. There s also the reality of getting called out of bed in the middle of the night if there s a police involved shooting. It s very important to me that I let the men and women know I care what happened Israel says. Jeff Marano president of the Broward Police Benevolent Association said Israel always shows up if there s a police involved shooting which the PBA does as well. It s a terrible thing to take a life but with the current sheriff and the staff the shooters are treated with respect and not looked at like they did something wrong Marano said. The PBA leader said he went to police academy with Israel 35 years ago and still describes him as a jock and an energetic individual. He has not changed one iota Marano said. It s tougher for Israel to work out now after having a spinal fusion eight years ago. what walked out the door Marano said. Israel said Lamberti wouldn t allow him access to the department during the eight weeks between the election and his assuming office so he spent a lot of time thinking about intelligence led policing. He says 6 percent of the criminal element commits 69 percent of the violent crime. Israel s Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response (VIPER) program works to execute more warrants and cultivate sources to take down that 6 percent. The program resulted in 400 arrests in nine months and overall violent crime is down 12.3 percent since Israel took office he says. The bottom line is that the Broward County Sheriffs Office exists for two reasons Israel says. One is to reduce crime and the other is to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Broward County. I understand the power of the position but I m just an old fashioned street cop who wants to make the streets safe.

In fact studies suggest that a college degree may translate into significantly higher earning power over time. It s no secret though that college is also expensive. How do you balance the high cost of college with other competing demands such as saving for retirement or paying down debt A popular and cost effective potential solution is a state-sponsored college savings plan. Commonly known as a 529 plan it s named after the section of the Internal Revenue Code that made this type of plan possible. WHAT S SO GREAT ABOUT 529 PLANS In two words tax benefits. The money you contribute to a 529 plan can grow free from federal income taxes. That means your investment earnings may compound faster than in a taxable account. What s more as long as you use your 529 savings to pay for qualified education expenses such as tuition room and board books and other necessary equipment and supplies those withdrawals are also free from federal income tax. Some states even offer residents state income tax benefits on contributions and withdrawals. If you use 529 savings for non-qualified expenses however the earnings portion of your withdrawal may be subject to taxes and penalties. GIVING YOU FLEXIBILITY With a 529 plan you can save for higher education costs for just about anyone in your life -- your children grandchildren other relatives or even yourself if you decide to go back to school. There are generally no age limits for the account beneficiary and unlike other tax-deferred investment programs your ability to contribute is not phased out at higher income levels. Most important the money you save in a 529 plan can be used at any eligible college university or vocational school. WILL YOUR FINANCES BE READY FOR COLLEGE What if your child decides to skip college The money you save in a 529 plan can be transferred to another family member or even yourself for higher-education costs although taxes and penalties may apply. Please consult the specific state s plan document for specifics on transferring a 529 plan. A WINNING COMBINATION OF BENEFITS Affording college for a child or grandchild requires careful planning. A 529 plan offers attractive benefits that can make it easier to save. Contact your financial professional to see if a 529 plan is right for your college savings needs.

Using the hashtags HIMYM or HIMYMfinale millions of viewers unleashed their anger and frustration in the form of even millions more tweets over the portrayal of the death of one of the characters. The eruption a phenomenon called trending in social media jargon is akin to hitting pay dirt in the twitterverse. On Twitter celebrities and business owners alike strive for that kind of attention. As with almost any form of marketing getting noticed on twitter is about being indispensable irreplaceable and irresistible. Truth is becoming an online brand is no easy process. But you don t need the nine-year run of HIMYM to make it happen either. As with any social media marketing effort getting noticed takes time persistence and awareness of what s going on around you. How can you grow your Twitter profile Be followed and follow alike. On Facebook you have Friends or Likes. On Twitter those who want to read what you re writing are called followers. The more who follow you the more likely your content is to be shared or retweeted. But it s a twoway street. Follow those who follow you and encourage following by putting the blue Twitter icon on your blog or website and even your email signature. Comment often. Social media isn t for wallflowers. Be part of the conversation. When people comment respond. When they tweet retweet. Engagement is highly personal. Track fast-moving trends. Whether it s a high-profile lawsuit a new fashion hitting the market or a popular television show coming to an close find your niche to which to hitch your own story.

The World Awaits 68 MAY 2014 LMGFL.COM LMGFL..COM LMGFL.COM MAY 2 0 14 MG CO M LC COM MAY 20 Y 2014 69 69 DINING Deer Creek Grille Refreshing Bite on the Green BY RICHARD SHELLENE PHOTOS BY IVETTE FIGUEROA There is something relaxing about a view of lush green golf courses. Add to this good food in a tavern-like atmosphere and you have a great setting for lunch or dinner. Deer Creek Grille in Deerfield Beach provides just such an establishment with their new menu. We started with an appetizer of pierogies a potato and cheese stuffed dumpling that is lightly browned with onions and a light creamy onion sauce. This or one of their salads would make a great start to your meal. We suggest you try their California chicken sandwich a grilled piece of chicken breast with a mix of flavors of fresh ingredients of tomato avocado and bean spouts. Topped with Swiss cheese on a multigrain roll make this a healthy and appetizing meal. If you are looking for a more filling fare for your evening meal the chopped steak is a house favorite with good reason. A full 8 oz. of Angus chop steak served with a rich beef mushroom and onion gravy topped with caramelized onions and finally dished with your choice of sides including fresh grilled vegetables. Or if you wish for something filling but on the lighter side the chicken piccata fits the bill perfectly. A chicken breast that is saut ed and layered with a white wine sauce capers and a hint of lemon that is sure to please the palate with its slightly more complex taste. The entr e is completed with a pairing of your choice of pastas and a gravy boat s worth of Parmesan cheese. Deer Creek Grille provides a laidback atmosphere blended with a light and flavorful new menu. Add to this the occasional evening entertainment and it makes this establishment a great place to stop by for a bite.
