Why was John Wayne Bobbitt at a Palm Beach Gardens hot dog contest?

Patience, people. Patience. John Wayne Bobbitt’s long white limo was supposed to pull up in front of The Abbey Road Grill & Sports Emporium a whole half-hour ago, but the lunch crowd inside is being extremely patient. In fact, this burger-munching, beer-sipping lunch crowd’s patience is so heroic, so sublime, that a careless observer might mistake it for indifference. Outside, in the Wednesday...

Why was Army hero killed in botched prisoner escape plan?

Thirty years ago, two ex-cons hatched a brazen, murderous scheme to free their imprisoned buddy during a trip to a doctor’s office in West Palm Beach.

‘Jaws’ at 42: Did you know shark’s first victim went to Forest Hill High?

When Steven Spielberg began casting “Jaws” in early 1974, he envisioned a New York City actress for the role of the skinny-dipper killed in the opening minutes of the movie.

Florida man vs. Fitbit: 10,000 steps a day, every day, for a year

Even at a young age, it was hard to keep me still. My parents tied a fishnet over my crib to keep this toddler in. So as I approach my 60th year on this planet, my latest feat (or possibly feet?) surprises no one in the family. When my youngest son gave me a hand-me-down Fitbit this past year to keep track of my steps on my morning walks, I took it to heart. Two Fitbits and 365 days later, I&rsquo...

A feel-good story: How a mango tree sparked an unforgettable romance

Katharine was already in her 90s when she knocked on my door one day in the early summer of 1989. I was busy with a newborn baby boy and my 3-year-old daughter, not to mention a half-renovated house, but she insisted on seeing my mango tree. She had white hair and wore an old lady’s house dress, but she walked briskly. Like she owned the place. As it turns out, she did have a prior claim, but...

Recipe of the week: fragrant, cheese-filled tomato basil tart

I have been on a tomato sandwich kick for days. It began with one medium-size tomato that had ripened gorgeously on my kitchen counter.
