Even when I m on a plane headed somewhere interesting or exotic I m always plotting my next adventure. But recently the word stay has become comforting. It hit me in March as I was headed back to Fort Lauderdale from a Interviewing Jared Galbut managing staycation at the Ocean principal of Menin Hospitality over breakfast Key Resort in Key West. at The Gale Hotel South Beach. After several days of letting my cares float away with the ocean breeze I realized that I wasn t rushed to make a flight or be home by a certain time. Instead on my leisurely drive back north I was able to make a stop at Bahia Honda State Park for a dip in the turquoise water and then pause for a perfect sunset in Islamorada. After years of suffering through brutal travel delays long flights lost luggage and language barriers this time I arrived home renewed and rested. So this summer I ve vowed to stay near home and enjoy all that South Florida has to offer. After all summer here is made for LOCALS. It s the time to snag deals on hotel rooms and to feel like we have our favorite restaurants all to ourselves. In this issue we ve mapped out the top hotels and resorts offering great resident savings and unique amenities. I also sat down with the handsome Jared Galbut managing principal of Menin Hospitality for his vision on the future of staycationing in Fort Lauderdale when the new Gale Hotel opens. If you have a boat crank it up for Bites by Boat. My husband and I took the boat out to discover some of the best restaurants from Fort Lauderdale Pompano and Lighthouse Point to dock and dine this summer. If you don t own a boat we found a luxurious boat service that will take you to dinner in style. Also in this issue a trend in fitness and wellness that s being built in Fort Lauderdale. See how a huge plaza is bringing together all the elements needed to squash all your exercise excuses. When it comes to fashion Brit it girl Sophia Webster was in Boca to show off her latest collection and I promise you will have a major shoe crush on her fun designs. Oh and I participated in a thrilling fun-raiser that put me over the edge of Fort Lauderdale s tallest building I rappelled down the 110 Tower for Gilda s Club. Let me just say that my legs are still shaking but what a great cause and event Enjoy your summer. Spend time with your family and friends. And most of all soak up what it really means to live here. Don t forget to spoil dad we handpicked gifts for him too.

THE BEAUTIFUL BONNET HOUSE The first time I saw the Bonnet House I was in complete awe of its beauty. The bright-yellow open-air Spanish-style home snuggled into 35 acres of lush greenery in Fort Lauderdale isn t just unique it s incredibly captivating. Although its grounds date back thousands of years as far back as when the Spanish first came in contact with the New World it was a man by the name of Hugh Taylor Birch who was responsible for making it what it is today. (I m pictured here in the courtyard wearing clothing and accessories by Serendipity Consignment Boutique in Boca Raton.) REINVENTION THE RUSTED JALOPY The Rusted Jalopy is an unusual and eclectic art workshop in downtown Fort Lauderdale s FATVillage. It s owned by designer artist Marlowe Buelvas whose specialty is taking repurposed flawed materials (copper steel metal and aluminum) and reshaping them into things that are strong and perfectly imperfect. Marlowe is most known for creating one-off items which he makes with old tools like an English wheel a bead roller and a planishing hammer all manually operated. At Rusted Jalopy Decor you can get one-of-akind handmade lamps furniture and fixtures. (I m pictured here in Marlowe s workshop wearing a design by Elektrik Boutique located on Las Olas Boulevard.)

Her latest line is full of shoes with candy-colored beaded heels zigzags angel wings speech bubbles and fun summer features like watermelons flowers pineapples and butterflies. The colorful collection is oh-so-South Florida. Webster admits that the last time she was in Miami she soaked up inspiration from our art deco buildings. Obviously the architecture the colors I definitely think that the A kitschy pink flamingo as a yard ornament No thanks. Flamingos perched on your shoes Yes please Brit it girl Sophia Webster a darling in the design world known for creating playful and whimsical shoes has a thing for the bright-pink birds and always finds a way to add some flamingo flair to her seasonal collections. I ve always loved flamingos. They re just very chic they totter around and they are very sassy. They ve become a bit of a mascot for the brand says Webster in her thick English accent. Plus pink is her favorite color 34 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM femininity of it as well as the graphic lines are very inspiring she says. Webster who studied fine art before she started designing shoes also took time to judge fashion students at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. The students created fashion illustrations designed to complement Webster s whimsical shoes. Webster then selected her favorites which will be on display at Saks. When I was a student I got a lot of support Webster says. Any competition that would come my way I would enter it because I felt like it was such a good way to get yourself out there and get yourself noticed. The East London gal keeps growing her business. Earlier this year Webster launched a bridal line and the new mom just unveiled a line of shoes for fashionista mini-mes. Now kids from babies to 9 years old can sport cute kicks with bananas watermelons and speech bubbles that say things like Tiny Talk.

C O M S JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 51 52 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM A Gale -force wind is blowing from south to north and hotelier Jared Galbut says it s the strong winds of change for Fort Lauderdale s hotel and nightlife scene. Fort Lauderdale comes to Miami sometimes ... but this is going to be the opposite. Miami is going to Fort Lauderdale to get away from it all says Jared Galbut the managing principal of Menin Hospitality. Galbut and business partner cousin Keith Menin are bringing their South Beach swagger to the 954. The pair is helping reincarnate the old Escape Hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach into a second Gale hotel. They will eventually manage the hotel and its food and beverage outlets when it opens in late 2017. As we sip coffee together at the Gale South Beach Galbut says his group looks for buildings with a past and admits he was instantly drawn to the Escape Hotel which was built in 1948 because it mirrored the story behind the current Gale. It s a two- to three-story property located right behind the W in Fort Lauderdale Galbut says. It was a hotel and then a nursing home for awhile which is the same story as the Gale South Beach. If you haven t been to the Gale South Beach it s an 87-room boutique hotel that Menin Hospitality took great care to restore to its original art deco history while mixing in modern conveniences. Galbut proudly points out the black-and-white photos of the GOING GALE BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 53 old hotel that line the walls along with pictures of his own family which has deep roots in developing Miami Beach for more than 80 years. The Gale s signature Italian restaurant Dolce just won Bravo TV s Best New Restaurant while its lounge Rec Room is a frequent celebrity hangout. Galbut says the new Fort Lauderdale property will tell its own story. The 96-room hotel will have a similar look and feel to the Gale South Beach but adapted a little more to the Fort Lauderdale lifestyle and history Galbut says. For us it s a little more nautical a little more beachy a little more relaxed. Galbut believes his company knows how to pinpoint what s missing in a certain market and fill that void. With successes like Radio Bar and Bodega Taqueria in South Beach the homegrown hotelier says Fort Lauderdale is ripe and ready for more places to dine and party. We are going to be opening up five to seven food and beverage outlets and nightlife venues over the next three years in Fort Lauderdale says Galbut. We ve got some really interesting concepts that we re coming up with something really different that hasn t been seen in the area. THIS JUST IN Menin Hospitality has taken over the food and beverage outlets at Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach and has potential plans to renovate the resort and marina. 54 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL COM JUNE 2 0 15 LMGFL.COM JUNE 20 1 5 GFL.

People can spend the whole day here. They could take a fitness class in the A BLOCK PARTY OF FITNESS AND FUN BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON FEDERAL FITNESS If you re driving north on busy Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale you can t miss a huge plaza anchored by Whole Foods Market and Dick s Sporting Goods. While it may look like any other large commercial plaza if you take a closer look you may notice a unique theme emerging. Children moving and playing on an open green space yogis drenched in sweat carrying their mats from hot yoga 20-somethings going straight from barre class to the bar families hauling out bags of organic produce. This plaza is quickly building a foundation of fitness and wellness and a happening new hangout in Fort Lauderdale. Tucked inside the sprawling plaza are four (yes four) different boutique fitness studios offering pretty much every type of popular a la carte workout on the market. We ve focused a lot on wellness. We recently opened Orangetheory Fitness and Core Contour. They join Barkan Method Hot Yoga and Pure Barre already located in the center says Jami Passer managing director for EDENS the developer of the Union Planters Plaza. Our new retail partners are bringing entirely new concepts to the Fort Lauderdale market. Core Contour owner Jen Capps lunging on the Megaformer Core Contour which offers the Lagree fitness method from Los Angeles is the latest spot to tone and tighten. Unlike other fast and furious workouts the motto here is 70 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM the slower you move the better your results. You ll be slowly planking lunging and lifting on the Megaformer (an amped-up Pilates machine) for a muscle-quivering 50 minutes. When we move slow we are effectively stimulating the slow-twitch muscle fibers that are responsible for burning fat and strengthening the body in areas we don t usually work says Jen Capps owner of Core Contour. If you do this two to three times a week you will see results in about a month or less she promises. Core Contour s next-door neighbor is Orangetheory Fitness. During this one-hour group workout you ll rotate between lightening-fast rounds of running on a treadmill rowing and weightlifting. Jackie Menapace the regional marketing coordinator for Orangetheory Fitness says Orangetheory is a highimpact class that can t be compared to any other workout. It s a heart-rate based workout that monitors your 5-zone intervals during your session which isn t offered by any of the other studios. No matter which exercise routine you choose (or try them all) it s all about building a healthier community. People can spend the whole day here says Passer. They could take a fitness class in the morning go grocery shopping at Whole Foods have lunch at Piola enjoy the afternoon sunshine on the green space and then select fresh produce at the weekly farmer s market to take home for dinner. With all the studios within walking distance one might think it would create some not-so-friendly competition. Not at all says Capps I always laugh when people say that because there s so much synergy between the four of us here. I m honored to be part of this.

Pilelsky and Roy Oppenheim How Oppenheim Law became a major national figure in the nation s mortgage meltdown BY KEVIN GALE FORECLOSURE Meanwhile his traditional business of handling closings and doing title work had evaporated. A friend said to me Roy your phone is not ringing. No one is walking in. No one is doing anything. Figure it out Oppenheim recalls. And so I went home and didn t really sleep much. Am I really going to do this Am I going to make registration line for law classes at Northwestern University and both worked for securities firms on Wall Street after graduation. Pilelsky says she liked her boutique firm which handled major projects and paid well. She was also able to routinely work a 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. schedule. Oppenheim however would sometimes come home at 5 or 6 a.m. with bagels after working all night. We d buy tickets to a Broadway show and I d have to give them to my secretary because I couldn t go Oppenheim says. And there were a lot of last-minute cancellations for dinner with friends. The pair started looking at law partners in their 40s and didn t think they were nurturing their children very well. Before we had children we said this was not the lifestyle we envisioned Oppenheim says. They moved to South Florida working with prominent firms in Miami and Pilelsky then working in the state attorney s office. Her father thought there would be opportunity opening a firm in the new community of Weston. And so the law firm of Ellen B. Pilelsky was formed. Oppenheim left his Miami firm Real estate lawyer Roy Oppenheim recalls when everything changed for his legal practice and the U.S. financial system. His wife Ellen B. Pilelsky started their law firm in Weston in 1989 when the area had more cows than people. As Weston grew so did their business which included Weston Title & Escrow Inc. In the mid-2000s they were riding an unprecedented wave of activity in South Florida. We had this great development practice all these clients building developing and flipping. It was just insane. People were flying and the phone was ringing. Then one day it was like the Twilight Zone says Oppenheim snapping his fingers and waving his arms like an NFL referee signaling no catch. Oppenheim who had previously worked as a securities lawyer on Wall Street watched as AIG and Lehman Brothers imploded. College savings accounts were temporarily frozen. I start seeing red really red. At the same time people were walking in and saying I can t pay my mortgage he says. First it was a handful of people but it turned into hundreds. A FRIEND SAID TO ME ROY YOUR PHONE IS NOT RINGING. NO ONE IS WALKING IN. NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING. FIGURE IT OUT. this pivot and turn the tables His decision to fight lenders would put him in the national spotlight about foreclosure practices. The beginning Oppenheim s trek into the rabbit hole of foreclosures would never had happened if he and his wife didn t want to have a good work life balance. They first met in the LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 79 on July 4 1990 which he calls his independence day and joined Pilelsky s practice. I was no longer going to be tethered to a large firm. I wanted to have balance in my life he says. The Oppenheims pride themselves on subsequently not missing major events with their children such as their daughter Melissa s rowing regattas or their daughter Wendi s fencing matches. Melissa now works for Facebook and Wendi is at Google. Their son Lance an awardwinning filmmaker will be attending Harvard in the fall after having spent part of a gap year filming his next movie in Southeast Asia. A work life balance also allows them to be active in the community. Pilelsky drafted the incorporation papers for B nai Aviv Synagogue and both have served on the board. Oppenheim formed the Weston Democratic Club and ended up attending President Clinton s inauguration with the entire family. The couple initially faced a lot of jokes about working in Weston when the ratio of cows to people was about 10 to 1. But then came the wave of development that would see Weston grow to 65 672 residents. Weston developer Arvida who had been a client of Oppenheim s firm in Miami gave them a lot of work. A billion and a half dollars in closings later that s what happened Oppenheim says. Oppenheim Law is the oldest and largest law firm in Weston with four other attorneys and more than 20 employees. It handles consumerrelated class actions including Firestone tires and DuPont s Teflon personal injury cases commercial litigation and business law. Oppenheim is more of the public face of the firm with his South Florida Law Blog YouTube channel and scholarly law review articles on the foreclosure crisis. Pilelsky who is known for having a good bedside 80 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM manner with clients handles the firm s administration. The foreclosure crisis hits The housing meltdown changed the nature of the practice. Oppenheim was soon busy defending hundreds of clients facing foreclosure. His background on Wall Street helped him understand the securitization of mortgages while his title work provided insight into the chain of custody of documents. Very quickly we saw the chains of title were broken nonexistent or fraudulent he says. It became apparent that in many cases the banks had falsified and forged documents and that s how the robo-signing crises evolved. There was a group of lawyers like myself who brought this to the attention of the authorities and media. We ended up winning and beating the banks in excess of 80 times modified hundreds of loans and handled hundreds of short sales and negotiated settlements. Oppenheim has been quoted as an expert in foreclosure defense by The Financial Times of London The New York Times The Wall Street Journal CNN and The Huffington Post. Oppenheim thought the wave would last two years but it s still going on eight years later. A pending Florida Supreme Court case is needed to sort out conflicting lower court rulings that could give lenders another bite of the foreclosure apple. It has to do with the fiveyear limitation for finishing the foreclosure of a mortgage. The fiveyear clock starts running when a lender demands full payment of the loan and interest a process known as acceleration says Oppenheim who has YouTube videos on the topic. The question is What happens in Pending cases will further clarify the law on foreclosures Florida cases where the foreclosure lawsuit was dismissed and the five years have run out In the case of U.S. Bank vs. Patricia J. Bartram the Fifth District Court of Appeal said the lender could revoke the acceleration called deacceleration and file for foreclosure again. In Deutsche Bank vs. Harry Beauvais the Third District Court of Appeal ruled that a bank cannot refile after five years when a case has been dismissed and the borrower prevailed in the original foreclosure case. Oppenheim supports that view saying deacceleration is a made-up legal fiction. Courts in Missouri New York Nevada and New Jersey have all basically ruled that you can t deaccelerate after you accelerate a loan he says. Oppenheim expects arguments in the case in October and a ruling early next year. LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 81 82 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM SPECIAL MARKETING SECTION Lifestyle advice WEIGHT-LOSS RESISTANCE Jessica had a purpose for her consultation with me. New year same old resolution get the weight off. Tired of being overweight she wanted to fix her metabolism once and for all and to be thin. So what have you tried in the past I inquired. Dr. Woliner what haven t I tried you mean. Jessica continued I fall for whatever quick weight loss scheme that comes around [1]. You know 30 lbs 30 days 30 . How d that work for you Well it wasn t 30. Somehow they got me to sign a contract for over 2 000. And you know I would have gladly paid that if I only got results. I can assure you that I will be honest and upfront with you. A patient has to have faith in her doctor. That was probably my problem. I never really saw a doctor. Even at the so-called medical clinics the doctor was only there for 3 hours a week and the girl that works up at the front desk was the one doing the consultations dispensing me my HCG and selling me other pills. The Sun-Sentinel ran an expose on HCG diet clinics showing how they offered more hype than help [2]. On these crash diets you might lose some weight but you re also likely lose your hair develop life-threatening heart arrhythmias and gain the weight back [3]. I m done with fad diets and clinics that focus only on weight-loss. I need a doctor to look at all of me and find out why I have a weight problem to begin with. I m not just a doctor who could prescribe appetite suppressants I m a board-certified family medicine physician with a degree in Nutrition from Cornell. I prefer to look at the causes of weight gain and treat them instead. I proceeded with my 80-minute new patient exam You re looking rundown. Thinning hair fatigue and muscle spasms. You know constant dieting can cause CENTRAL HYPOTHYROIDISM low iron and electrolyte imbalances. We should check for all those. Since you re fasting today we can do a KORR INDIRECT CALORIMETRY test to measure your metabolism [4]. Jessica s metabolism measured at minus 18% less than normal and blood tests confirmed that her thyroid had shut down (normal TSH but other thyroid tests abnormal) [5]. Your low magnesium can cause those muscle spasms and even though you re not anemic your iron isn t adequate to grow hair or keep your energy levels up [6]. Is there a way I can jumpstart things I won t make the false promise of a pound a day but you ll see results pretty quickly. My diet suggestions will make it easier to get adequate protein in each day causing your metabolism to recover but until that happens we ll need to prescribe T3-based thyroid medication. We could also do iron injections to give your hair raw materials to grow again [7]. 3 months and 20 pounds lighter Jessica was very upbeat. The way I m going this is one New Year s Resolution that will be easy to keep. REFERENCES [1] I lost 350 in two weeks.

Here are the top places to anchor this summer. BITES BY BOAT (breakfast lunch and dinner) by boat. Nestled in a beautiful marina the laid-back and friendly cafe caters to people and their pups there is a special menu just for dogs BEST BITES With 13 rotating chefs the menu offers something for everyone. Start off with the crispy Tuna Wontons stacked with tuna tartar seaweed salad and wasabi aioli get a taste of coastal Maine with the Lobster Roll packed with huge chunks of lobster and crunchy lettuce (one of the best we ve had outside of Maine) and don t miss the perfectly cooked scallops (the night we were there they were prepared with blue cheese and pecans and served over red and golden beets). There s also a Hook and Cook special where the chef will cook your catch of the day. BEST BEVERAGES Savor homemade sangria or sip a bright pomegranate Champagne cocktail. The Rusty Hook Tavern 125 Riverside Drive Pompano Beach 954.941.2499 THE VIBE This lively new spot is a casual place to people-watch and catch megayachts cruise by your table. There s great waterfront seating and on the weekends diners benefit from the Sands Harbor Resort s live entertainment on the pool deck. BEST BITES The menu is heavy on seafood and big on flavor. The West African-born chef trained in France so every dish is full of herbs and spices. Start off with the Ahi Tuna Poke with bacon chutney and spicy mayo the Wahoo Ceviche (or fresh catch of the day) in coconut milk and the Pork Belly with a pomegranate BBQ glaze. For dinner hook the whole fish of the day often prepared with olives sweet peppers and garlic. BEST BEVERAGES Sip the fresh Thai Basil cocktail with clementine vodka basil and grapefruit or go for a kick with the Guilty Plea made with tequila Thai chili passion fruit and jalapeno. On Wednesdays score half off on bottles of wine. The Nauti Dawg Marina Cafe 2841 Marina Circle Lighthouse Point 954.941.0246 THE VIBE This off-the-beaten path restaurant run by three siblings from Lighthouse Point is the only place in Broward County where you can get all three meals 86 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM ARRIVE IN STYLE The Pirate Republic Seafood & Grill 400 SW Third Ave. Fort Lauderdale 954.761.3500 THE VIBE This massive pirate-themed restaurant has some of the best views of the New River with a large airy deck fit for swapping tales of water adventures. Docking is made easy with 140 feet of dock space ace and seven additional slips for boaters. There s even a pool on site to cool off. BEST BITES Don t let the kitschy pirate theme fool you the real treasure here is the food. The owner Roberto sailed the world for 35 years and the menu is full of his favorite orite recipes. His wife Claudia cooks up dishes from the Caribbean Brazil Spain and beyond. Start with the spicy Fire Coral Shrimp topped with flavorful Brazilian hot peppers then move on to perfectly tenderized octopus. Definitely share seafood specialties like the Asopado de Marisco which is a bowl packed with seafood in a saffron sauce brandy and wine. Another must-try is the flavorful Brazilian dish Vatapa a complex fish and shrimp dish that takes about 20 hours to prepare. BEST BEVERAGES Pirates may be known for swigging rum but here you ll want to down the No Guts No Glory Margarita made with Patron fresh-squeezed lemon and lime and agave. Other fresh favorites are the One Eye Mojito or the Acai Caipirinha. Don t have a boat No problem Longtime boater George Allen and his girlfriend Carmen will pick you up in their luxurious 40-foot Van Dutch boat and take you to dinner in style. Think of it as your high-end limo on the water. Our passengers cruise for two hours sightseeing and relaxing with no traffic to deal with except for maybe a few dolphins or manatees along the way Allen says. The couple will scoop you up in your backyard (if you re lucky enough to live on the water) or at another waterfront location then drop you at a restaurant of your choice anywhere from Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton to Miami. Water sodas and juices are provided however Allen says they ll cater to a customer s every whim. A slow sunset cruise to their favorite restaurant while sipping Champagne is a client favorite. Of course this kind of luxury will cost you. A twohour cruise to dinner runs around 900 but you can have up to 10 people on board. Splurge for a romantic ride with just two people or have all your friends pitch in for a raucous ride Blue Infinity Charters 786.236.0728 blueinfinitycharters.com LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 87 Adena Grill & Wine Bar 900 Silks Run 1740 Hallandale Beach 954.464.2333 RAISING THE STAKES AT GULFSTREAM BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON ADENA GRILL When it comes to dining at The Village at Gulfstream Park place your bets on the new Adena Grill. With a mind-blowing 7 000 bottles of wine (no I m not exaggerating) meat from its own farm and dazzling decor Adena Grill is a winner. At the sprawling restaurant walls are adorned with striking murals created by a Russian artist while other walls of glass serve as climatecontrolled wine fridges. The main dining room is large and inviting giving guests ample room for an intimate and comfortable meal. A separate glam bar is perfect for a post-race cocktail and there s even a private wine room for a romantic dinner or party. Here s the beef on the steakhouse While many restaurants tout grassfed and hormone-free meats on their menus Adena Grill can actually vouch for its bragging rights. All of the beef and chicken are fed and finished at the owner s namesake 90 000-acre farm in Ocala Florida a true farm-tofork experience. Chef Giovanni Arias formerly of health-conscious Canyon Ranch Miami Beach is spearheading the restaurant s all-natural vision. We began our meal with the creamy burrata served with strawberries figs and hazelnuts an excellent combination of sweetness and nuttiness. We also shared the Shellfish Platter which was stacked with shrimp Maine lobster stone crab claws and Massachusetts oysters. Adena Grill claims everything is out of the water and onto your plate within 24 hours and sure enough each element truly tasted like it came straight from the sea. I ve tried just about every supped- up mac and cheese in South Florida and Adena s Gnocchi Mac and Cheese tops my list. While most macs leave you feeling heavy this cheesy dish manages to taste light and pillowy. The secret The chef actually uses the entire potato to make the gnocchi along with a crispy potato skin topping Gruyere cheese and bacon. The 5-yearold in me didn t want to share. While I m not a huge carnivore my husband grew up on a beef cattle farm in Virginia so he s always my tastetester when it comes to meat. His face lit up when he tore into his Bone-In Cowboy Steak with rich marbling and perfect char. The verdict Juicy and delicious. My medium Petit Filet was also on point and so tender I was able to slice into it like butter. Adena offers several different sauces to accompany its steaks (for an additional charge) and our favorites were the Truffle Mustard and Chimichurri. Not a meat eater I enjoyed the earthiness and heartiness of the Roasted Vegetable & Barley Risotto with melt-in-your-mouth mascarpone oregano and pistachio pesto. 88 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL OM LMGFL.COM JUNE 2 0 1 5 LMGFL.COM JUNE 20 15 G O NE 2015 E 89 89 NSU UNIVERSITY SCHOOL CONGRATULATES the members of the class of 2015 on their acceptances to the nation s finest colleges and universities Sofia Aumann Cornell Tulane University of Michigan Vanderbilt Jared Barclay Claremont McKenna College (ED) Grant Besner Duke University (ED) Cole Bianco University of Michigan University of Pennsylvania Washington University David Branse Brown University Cornell UC Berkeley Vanderbilt Leah Bush Swarthmore College Williams College Zachary Chase Caltech Cornell Georgia Tech Johns Hopkins Giovanna Elia Parsons School of Design Rhode Island School of Design Pratt Institute Syracuse University Alejandro Fischer Brian Herskowitz Carnegie Mellon Cornell Georgia Tech UF Emory (ED) Laura Huertas Rhode Island School of Design Pratt Institute USC Eddie Hurowitz Cornell Tulane University of Michigan Rohan Rajan Duke University (ED) Allison Reiser UF University of Michigan School of Nursing University of Wisconsin School of Nursing Yamila Saiegh Vanderbilt (ED) Rachel Sereix Duke University (ED) Alyssa Woodruff Kenyon College Smith College UNC at Chapel Hill Wellesley College Naelle Zephir Boston University Georgia Tech UF Call (954) 262-4506 for more information about our junior kindergarten grade 12 college preparatory education. 90 JUNE 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM JUNE 2015 91 The physicians and staff were knowledgeable supportive and caring - 100% of the time.
