GMA’s Amy Robach on breast cancer: ‘The last thing I expected to hear’
 She didn’t want to do it. Even now, Amy Robach admits that she initially nixed the idea of doing a live mammogram on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” on which she was then a correspondent, because “I truly had no history in my family that it would be possible, let alone probable” that she had breast cancer...

Leggings controversy: I’m siding with United Airlines on this one
 Here we go again. Or don’t go, because your outfit’s too skimpy to get on the plane. Less than a year after JetBlue Airlines made an Oregon burlesque dancer cover up her booty shorts or else get kicked off her flight home, another carrier has found the travel attire of young would-be passengers to be lacking. Lacking material...

He once lived behind a building. Now he’s getting a college degree.
 Lanorris Lester isn’t sure about this. Even as he sits here, tie perfectly tied, pants perfectly pressed, ready to tell his story, his smile’s a little nervous, his laugh genuine though still a little hesitant. But here, in the comfort of the place he used to live, he feels somewhat comfortable talking about it, that pain that...

William Shatner: Why I was at Mar-A-Lago after Leonard Nimoy died
 Happy birthday, William Shatner! The ‘Star Trek’ icon is 86 years old today. Here is what he told us last year about the time he visited Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago the same weekend that his friend and ‘Trek’ co-star Leonard Nimoy was being buried, which got Shatner a lot of online criticism: “I was at a...

Did Chuck Berry steal his own song from Marty McFly?
 “Chuck! Chuck, it’s Marvin … Your cousin, Marvin Berry? You know that new sound you’re looking for? Well, listen to this!” And thus it is suggested that Chuck Berry, the musical maverick who finished his earthly gig on Saturday, did not so much help construct rock and roll out of rhythm and blues, country and...

West Palm Beach teen inspires classmates to exercise, fight obesity
 These eighth grade students at St. Ann’s Catholic School in downtown West Palm Beach are used to gym class, but this particular instructor leading them through a routine of calisthenics is new - not completely new, since they’ve seen him pretty much every day since the fourth grade. The difference is that, usually, he’s...

Was the first black 'Bachelorette' disrespected on the 'Bachelor' finale?
 Imagine you’re the last of a large family to get married, and everyone at your sister’s wedding is excited about your upcoming one, which is sure to be as lavish and over-the-top as everyone else’s.

Why I won’t watch fat-shaming of WE tv’s ‘Mama June’
 I am not in the habit of tweeting advice to celebrities about their personal or professional choices. Plus, assuming that level of familiarity with a stranger is creepy. But when your profession is your personal life, or at least the carefully-edited and allegedly real televised version of it, then it’s fair to say that I and everyone...

Can Palm Beach Gardens woman change the world with acts of kindness?
 Christmastime is typically thought of as the season of brotherhood, peace and togetherness.

NEW: Peter the Chimp, longtime Lion County Safari favorite, dies at 43
 He was a longtime resident of the western communities. He never went to polo or had a coffee at the food court at the Mall at Wellington Green. But in his 40-something years here, he still made his mark on his special corner of Palm Beach County. Peter, a 43-year-old chimpanzee and fixture at Loxahatchee’s Lion Country Safari, ...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FLORIDA! Here are 172 things we love about you
 Today, my Florida friends and family and transplants, is the day.  The day Florida attained statehood. That means this lovely, long-haul of a state celebrates its 172nd birthday today.

The movie Millennials love Karen Allen for — and it’s not “Raiders”
 A guy walks into a bar. And is promptly socked in the face by a righteously angry woman. It sounds like the set-up for an old joke. But for moviegoers, it’s the moment they fell in love with Marion Ravenwood, the self-sufficient and spirited equal to “Raiders of the Lost Ark”’s adventuresome archaeologist Indiana Jones...

I’m black. They’re white. We talked about racism. It’s a start.
 “So, what I want to know … is if this is really happening? Right now?” The questioner is a kind-looking but obviously concerned white woman. We have all just seen Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer-winning “Disgraced,” a searing and sadly relevant treatise on race, religion and identity in America that ends its run...
