Year-In-Review: There was a massive show of force at the Port of Palm Beach Monday.

Local, state, and federal law enforcement practiced their response to a terrorist attack. It's called "Operation Guardian." Click to see video below:

Officers participated in active-shooter drills, hostage situations, and dealing with violent protesters.

About 350 officers from eight different agencies took part in the training.

"When an incident happens like you have in Orlando or Fort Lauderdale Airport, more than one agency is going to be involved and we have to know how each other works," said Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.

Bradshaw said the training is more important than ever because President Trump is making Palm Beach County his part-time home.

UPDATE 12-8-2017 1:00 PM: Presidential Visit this Weekend
Posted by R. Michael Brown
Published: Friday, 08 December 2017 10:30

Beginning at approximately 1:00 PM on Friday, December 8, 2017, the process of closing roadways around Mar-A-Lago will be initiated. The closure will be in effect through Sunday, December 10, 2017. [Updates in Red]

The FAA issued flight restrictions for the area around Palm Beach from 11 p.m. Friday to 9:30 a.m. Saturday. A separate FAA notice restricts flights in the area from 2:30 p.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday. The president is expected to arrive late Friday night from a rally in Pensacola. On Saturday the president will head to Mississippi and back in the afternoon. 

Expect the usual roadblocks around Mar-a-Lago from Friday through Sunday:

Mar a LagoRoadBlock w600

Other FAA advisories were issued for weekend trips to Pensacola on Friday, and Jackson, Miss., on Saturday so be on the lookout for several presidential motorcades and additional temporary road closures in the area.

From the Town of Palm Beach:

It is recommended that all household staff, landscaper maintenance companies, pool companies, etc. adjust their schedules accordingly so as not to spend an unnecessary amount of time in traffic due to the 1 PM closure.

As always, motorists are strongly encouraged to refrain from cellular phone use or any other distractions while driving to assist in the movement of traffic.

During the closure period, all forms of travel, including pedestrian travel, are prohibited on S. Ocean Blvd from the intersection of S. County Road to Southern Boulevard. The travel restrictions will also extend eastward to the ocean.

If you are a resident living south of the South Ocean Blvd. and South County intersection you will be granted access with proper credentials.

Traffic heading east on Southern Boulevard will only be allowed to exit right at the roundabout to South Ocean Boulevard. Northbound travelers on South Ocean Boulevard will exit onto westbound Southern Boulevard.

Anyone traveling south on South County Road or South Ocean Boulevard will be redirected north at the intersection of those roads.

As a reminder, commercial vehicles (including landscaping trucks) are prohibited from traveling east on Southern Blvd and North of the 1200 block of S. Ocean.

Marine security zones will be in effect during this period.

President in Palm Beach: Ninth Visit Comes with New Wrinkles

President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to Mar-a-Lago should feature the least disruptive arrival motorcade of his presidency and a brief Saturday reprieve for weekend pilots who are grounded when the president is in town.

Trump, whose eight previous presidential visits have often snarled rush hour traffic between Palm Beach International Airport and his tropical White House, isn’t expected to arrive on Air Force One until 11 p.m. or later Friday night.

Bradley Park Beautification Ribbon Cutting Scheduled
Posted by R. Michael Brown
Published: Friday, 01 December 2017 10:41

The Preservation Floundation gave a presentation this week to the Civic Association Beautification Committee on the Bradley Park transformation project.

A Ribbon Cutting ceremony to re-open the park is scheduled for Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 9 a.m.

Over the summer of 2017, the Preservation Foundation transformed Bradley Park through a $2.7 million project that fully realized Colonel E.R. Bradley’s vision for a town-serving park along the shore of Lake Worth. Enhancements include a quarter-mile-long meandering stone dust path that incorporates benches and leads pedestrians through a series of exhibition gardens separated by tall Podocarpus hedges.

The presentation to the Civic Assocition was given by Amanda H. Skier, Preservation Foundation Executive Director, and Brian Vertesch, SMI Landscape Architecture.

In Memoriam

Doyle Rogers

Doyle Rogers
1929-2016

The Palm Beach Civic Association is grateful for the exceptional life and service of Civic Association Chairman Emeritus Doyle Rogers who passed away peacefully last Sunday.

Doyle was the best friend the Palm Beach Civic Association ever had.  He was an enthusiastic supporter of our efforts to protect and improve the Palm Beach community.  He served as Civic Association Chairman in the 1980s and Chairman Emeritus for more than 20 years.

No one loved Palm Beach more than Doyle Rogers.  He practiced law in Town for many years, developed countless friends in all walks of life, and was highly regarded for his honesty, decency, and integrity.  He was the consummate gentleman loved by all.     

In 2014, he retired from the firm of Alley, Maass, Rogers & Lindsay, PA. He was a trustee of the Society of the Four Arts, director and former president of the Palm Beach membership of Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation, a former director of Hospice of Palm Beach County, and a former member of the Federal Judicial Nominating Commission for the Southern District of Florida.

Among his many community activities, he chaired the Town of Palm Beach Charter Review Commission and its Architectural Commission.  He was a director of SunTrust Bank/South Florida, president of Town of Palm Beach United Way, president of University of Florida Foundation, president of University of Florida National Alumni Association, chairman of Community Television Foundation of South Florida Inc. (WPBT Channel 2), a life director of WPBT, and senior warden of Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. He received the Alexis de Tocqueville Society Award, Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce Community Service Award,  Bethesda Vestry Silver Cross Award, and Distinguished Alumnus Award from University of Florida, from which he received both his undergraduate and law degrees.

Doyle Rogers was an exemplary community leader and also our friend.  We will miss his upbeat spirit and his passion for Palm Beach. We are deeply grateful for his many positive contributions to the quality of life in our special town.
 
We extend our sympathies to his wife, Barbara, his children, and grandchildren.
