4 UP front Approaching Holiday Season Means Increased DUI Patrols, Arrests By Kevin Warmbrandt, Esq. new, now & noteworthy Kevin J. Warmbrandt, Esq., a former prosecutor with experience handling DUI, criminal defense and the defense of all traffic offenses, has served Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties for 25 years. As the winter holiday season approaches, police in South Florida will be stepping up their DUI enforcement activity. If you plan on going out drinking, the best way to ensure you don t get ensnared in these police efforts is to take a cab, use a designated driver or make other arrangements to get home. To pull you over for a suspected DUI, the police first must have a reasonable suspicion you are violating the law or committing a traffic infraction. In fact, minor traffic violations are one of the most common ways the police find and stop impaired drivers. Speeding, weaving in and out of lanes of traffic, running a stop sign or red light are some examples police look for to spot potentially impaired or drunk drivers. Once being pulled over, the police officer will begin to assess whether a driver is impaired. This will include the officer s observations of certain signs of impairment such as bloodshot eyes, the odor of alcoholic beverage, slurred speech, unsteadiness and the display of other visible signs of impairment. The officer may also request roadside or field sobriety exercises such as a balance exercise, touching a finger to the nose, walking a line (even imaginary) heel to toe and following a pen with the eyes. It is at this point the officer decides if there is probable cause to arrest the driver. If so, the driver will be placed under arrest. In Florida, a DUI conviction comes with steep penalties for even first time offenders. Among these are probation, a court ordered license suspension, fines and surcharges exceeding $1,000, performing community service and completing DUI school. To be sure, in this case a driver s insurance rates will increase significantly. WHAT TO DO IF PULLED OVER FOR DUI If you are pulled over and being investigated for a suspected DUI or other charge, it is important you are courteous to the police officer. Understanding the difficulty of remaining calm, even at roadside it is not necessary to answer any of the officer s questions, especially if the officer asks if you had anything to drink. It s up to the investigating officer to collect the evidence he or she needs to determine if you should be arrested. You should exit your vehicle if asked but you don t have to consent to a search of the vehicle. If asked to submit to the field sobriety exercises or a breath test you are not legally required to submit. However, a refusal to submit to a breath test will result in an administrative suspension of your driver s license for a year. If you have been charged with a DUI, you should contact an experienced DUI defense attorney as soon as possible, In Florida, you have only 10 days from the date of arrest to act in order to fight the suspension and keep it off your record or seek a permit of eligibility to drive. An experienced attorney can begin immediately to work for you to determine the strengths and legality of the evidence against you. Whatever choices you make during this festive time of year, the last thing you need is for anyone to judge you for that choice, therefore use caution and common sense when you know you will be drinking. Have a safe and happy holiday. Kevin J. Warmbrandt can be reached at or 4 UPTOWN south florida magazine

8 UP COMING activities & happenings Home DÉcor Tips: A New Look For A New Year By Robin Lechner, Interior Designer Robin Lechner is the founder and principal of Robin Lechner Designs. One of the easiest and most effective ways to renew and refresh the interior of your home and transform an entire design scheme is changing the color of walls and ceilings. Because it covers such a large surface area, no interior design element affects the mood and atmosphere of a room more than paint. And although it s one of the least expensive elements of home design, people find color selection one of the most difficult choices. Yet color is just the beginning of the journey -- metallics, suedes, stenciling, and other finishes and effects can be achieved with a paint brush or roller. you ll be using the room before making a decision. Choose The Right Finish: A matte finish is understated and softens a space. Add a texture like suede, and the room takes on a warm and calm feel. Texture also gives a wall depth. The light is absorbed and scattered rather than reflected. Matte and egg shell finishes are preferred for walls that have flaws and are not completely smooth. Gloss and metallic paint finishes create visual focus and heighten mood. They accentuate details and are perfect to highlight a focal point like a fireplace mantel or accent wall. It s wonderful in kitchens for added shimmer to complement the sheen of lacquer cabinetry, stainless steel, and tile. Be Inspired: Color inspiration can come from anywhere or anything. It can be found in a favorite toss pillow, part of a rug pattern, a piece of art, or from nature. Your primary color choice will serve as a launch pad for adding fabrics, furnishings, accessories, and other accent colors. Try Before You Buy: Lighting affects colors. Paint will look different at various times of day and under natural and artificial light. Buy pint sized cans in a few different shades, and paint two coats on each wall, allowing the paint to dry. Check how the paint looks under the conditions that Use High Quality Paint: The better the quality, the finer and smoother the finish, and the more saturated the color will appear. Wall Coverings: Another option for wall treatment is wallpaper. It s my favorite element to include in a home s design scheme. Paper gives a room depth, texture, and a feeling of movement. Try a dramatic pattern on the walls (and always the ceiling) of a powder room. A mural or grasscloth ups the elegance and sophistication of a dining room. A pattern with texture and shimmer is warm and welcoming in an entry hall and a floral is romantic and cozy in a bedroom. It s not necessary to paper all walls in a room. Experiment with papering one wall behind a bed, a fireplace wall in a library, or a single wall in a bathroom.

9 UP front FROZEN YOGURT VS. ICE CREAM The Great Debate Unraveled new, now & noteworthy When comparing fro-yo to ice cream, there are some stark contrasts between the two. Ounce for ounce, apples to apples, yogurt has less calories and fat. So what s the big freakin difference? The Skinny on Yogurt Fro-yo has ice cream licked when it comes to nutritional benefits. Let s first talk composition. Fro-yo is mostly made from milk (solids and fats) and yogurt culture as compared to ice cream, which is typically made from heavy cream. Yogurt is also lower in fat and calories. In addition, fro-yo has another significant benefit over ice cream probiotics. Probiotics are a beneficial form of bacteria. They are found in yogurt and other fermented products and aid in the digestion of food. Although it is questionable as to which yogurts have probiotics (some may not survive the freezing process), some South Florida stores such as Menchie s Frozen Yogurt offer only yogurt that has been awarded the Live and Active Culture Seal by the National Yogurt Association. The difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt? (1 cup serving of vanilla flavored dessert)** *Add calories per cup to flavored ice cream and for each 1-2 ounces of many mix-ins in yogurt **Source info: labels and frozen yogurt information for soft serve. These values can vary greatly with flavor and brand. + Daily value=1000 mg calcium Chart provided by Children s Hospital Colorado Menchie s Frozen Yogurt Aventura located in the newly renovated Town Center Aventura (Publix & Party City Shopping Center) is at the forefront of the fro-yo revival. Menchie s offers its own Private Label Collection of flavors made from milk that is rbst-free and the entire line is certified kosher and carries the Live and Active Culture Seal by the National Yogurt Association. A Hot Climate Calls for a Cool Healthy Treat With the speed of a hurricane sweeping across the Atlantic, the fro-yo obsession has taken South Florida by storm. Having grown up in New York, lived in L.A. for more than 15 years and Aventura for the past 5 years, Chris Hess, owner of Menchie s Frozen Yogurt Aventura says, South Florida rivals perhaps only L.A. when it comes to health-obsessed, nutrition-conscious people. That combined with a yearround climate that is conducive to bikinis, board shorts and other clothing that leaves little to the imagination; the chance to offer a healthy alternative to ice cream seemed like a no-brainer. Here to Stay Growing from a mere $25 million in sales in the 80 s to an estimated $2.5 billion in 2012 there is no doubt frozen yogurt is here to stay. That is good news for South Floridians. If you have not yet sampled the new generation of frozen yogurt you just might be in for a surprise. 03/31/14 UPTOWN south florida magazine January

10 UP front CARPE DIEM Barbara Greenspan Shaiman is an educator, entrepreneur and social entrepreneur. By Barbara Greenspan Shaiman Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them. James Baldwin, writer and civil rights activist We don t typically use the word character to describe a 6 year old. But at what age is it apparent that a child possesses qualities of character? At what point do you say, Oh, darn, I forgot to teach them character? 12? 20? Babies aren t born having an opinion about anything at all. They re a tabula rasa, just waiting for input from us. With the goal of wanting our children to thrive in a competitive society, we push to develop them academically, athletically, even musically. But so often we forget to develop their hearts. Why not include character-building, such as making sure their teeth are straight and their homework is done? As parents and concerned citizens, we know if the next generation is to reach its potential to improve our society, we have to participate actively in the learning process. new, now & noteworthy It is as true as it is cliché: Children learn by example. As my mother always said, If you don t do it, don t say it. We must teach compassion by showing it. We have to take advantage of every opportunity to discuss values, ethics, and making wise choices with our children from childhood throughout adulthood. With young children, encourage them when they show character. Many families create reward charts for completing chores where their children are incentivized for completing household tasks. Why not create a Character Chart as well? Reward children for being kind to their siblings, resolving conflicts, being courteous or calling or visiting their grandparents. Character doesn t just happen. It needs to be modeled, reinforced, and rewarded. We have to engage our children in conversation and have real dialogues about moral dilemmas so that when they are faced with a problem they re comfortable coming to us for advice. Give Them Roots It is important that we help young people understand where they came from, and to feel that they are a part of a legacy bigger than themselves. Think about the people and events in your family history that have influenced you. Have you done enough to share this information with the next generation? You never know what aspect of your family s history will spark their interest. Maybe there was an event or a tragedy in your 10 UPTOWN south florida magazine

11 UP FRONT new, now & noteworthy family that will motivate them to take action. They may also be inspired by the actions of heroic and courageous members of your family, and feel driven to make their own mark. Don t wait to share your family history with your children. If you are lucky to have elderly relatives who are still living, record or videotape oral histories. Have them explain the context of family photos, and describe the characteristics and values of other family members. If this isn t possible, do a research project to find out about your family s background. Or take a trip with your family to trace their roots and learn firsthand about their lives. This is a great way to discuss what your family stands for, and to pass on values from one generation to the next. Make Your Own Traditions In our busy, frenetic lives, simply finding time to be with your family is a true challenge; let alone finding time to do service. Don t separate the two. Like so many endeavors, the process can begin at home. Home is our center, and often a source of strength. Begin at home. Some families have regular meetings to discuss everything from schedule conflicts to moral and ethical dilemmas. One family I know has mandatory Sunday dinners where each family member has the floor for at least ten minutes, rebuttals optional. Another family calls meetings to make major decisions. In this way, everyone is heard, whether his or her suggestion is acted upon or not. At the very least, this exercise teaches that it s important to allow individuals to have their say. Everyone s voice matters. Doing Service as a Family There are several ways for the family to be together in service to others. Is there someone in town who has suffered a fire, death, or other traumatic event and could use some help? Make a meal and deliver it to them while they heal. Or mow their lawn, take out their trash, or run errands for them. Your example as parents, neighbors, and friends could make a lasting impression on your children about what it means to belong to a community -- to demonstrate caring and respect for others.
