I’m not a native South Floridian. So it’s taken me time to learn the quirks and the intricacies that make up every pocket of South Florida – from the laid-back beauty of the Treasure Coast, to the international vibrancy of Miami, to the bustling waterways of Fort Lauderdale.
But one iconic South Florida neighborhood has always seemed just out of reach, untouchable: Palm Beach. It sets itself apart with legendary stories of the Kennedys, with mansions along South Ocean Boulevard and with the designer-packed Worth Avenue.
Good news for parents and children who hate needles and flu shots: Starting this year, health officials recommend that healthy kids ages 2 to 8 get the nasal spray flu vaccine instead of flu shots. Officials say that the nasal spray vaccine works better, and that using the spray instead of the needle may result in more kids getting the flu vaccine.
Ioriginally wanted to be a photojournalist. I loved documenting life on film – photographing friends, acquaintances and random strangers, special occasions, nature, unique sights and interesting vignettes, patterns and textures. I had an eye for composition and a knack for getting subjects to cooperate. It was storytelling at its finest and my first photography class in college was thrilling.

It all began on a whim. Arthur and Melanie Rivaldo were in no financial position to buy, let alone build, a restaurant back in 2008. But that’s exactly what the chef and then-bartender did. “We’re very impulsive people,” Melanie says with a warm smile. Yes, the owners of Hog Snappers Shack and Sushi were impetuous back then, but they were also determined, hardworking visionaries. They each worked two jobs, borrowed money and sold possessions to open an island-inspired restaurant in Tequesta in August 2009. And although they did not have a restaurant sign for nearly eight months after they opened, they had customers in the parking lot waiting in their beach chairs and pick-up trucks just to get a seat inside. Since then, they have opened two more locations: North Palm Beach in June and Stuart in December.
