Yinh, a Dwyer High School By Christine Stapleton Palm Beach Post Staff mter WEST PALM BEACH Five teens with clean records, decent grades and skilled lawyers sat shackled in court Friday as their parents and attorneys implored a judge to send them home despite their arrests for a beating death last weekend. Attorneys for the teens told Circuit Judge Karen Martin that Riviera Beach police detectives had told them Thursday they would agree to releasing the teens to their parents until prosecutors file formal charges. However, Assistant State At torney Craig Salisbury said prosecutors plan to treat them as adults and asked that they be held at the juvenile detention center because the fatal beating death of Robert Boland, 30, was "cruel and heinous." Boland's brother, Charles Boland, 32, is in fair condition at St. Mary's Medical Center. The judge has agreed to reconsider releasing the teens after he hears from the detectives at a court hearing Monday.

Zisson said he made the latest donation because he was impressed by the cancer institute's emphasis on medical treatment, counseling, literature and other services. "I never had that," Zisson said.

PAHOKEE Friday marked the official start of campaign season for the May 5 city commission election, and incumbent Keith Babb was first in line, said City Clerk Debra Buff. He filed the paperwork needed to run for a fourth term, she said. Four seats are expected to be open, as acting Mayor John Norman plans to run for the mayor's seat. Mayor Ramon Horta resigned in January. The other seat open is Commissioner Pete Moore's. LAKE WORTH City attorney Betty Resell said Friday she will reimburse the city $1,031 : for an ethics class mandated by the Florida Bar for a legal rules violation. Mayor Tom Ramiccio said he would ask Rescn to repay the money. Resch, whose salary is $71,186, said she wanted to put the matter behind her and would pay back to her department budget the $750 fee for the class and $281 for hotel expenses and mileage. Last summer, the Bar directed Resch to take the course because she had contacted an opposing lawyer's client without the lawyer's permission. The bar concluded that Resch did not appreciate the gravity of the violation. 16 tS i 07 A MARK MIRKOStaff Photographer WELLINGTON Cldalla Sllva enjoys Friday the 1999 Mercedes-Benz ML 320 she won In the Florida Lottery's first Lottomoblle contest.

Martin Circuit Court prosecutors said Pa-risi drove the getaway car while Joseph York, 18, of Jensen Beach, robbed the store owner of a $29,000 bank deposit. The two were captured two weeks later in Georgia. York was found guilty of robbery in a jury trial and was sentenced last week to 9V6 years in prison. Pa-risi's attorney, Richard Kibbey, said he will ask that she be sentenced as a youthful offender to no more than four years in prison. Kibbey said Parisi was supposed to be committed to a mental health treatment facility at the time of the holdup. No sentencing date was set.

Other docks in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties will also be checked, Florida Marine Patrol Officer Chris Campora said. A state law requires house tions Friday. "We're not going to be able to stop everybody from dumping, but if boaters are unaware, they can't comply," she said. Swimmers who encounter untreated waste could develop skin rashes, stomach aches or hepatitis. State DEP officials want to increase the number of public and private pumpout stations from 250 to more than 600 to increase boater use. Boaters pay $5 to use any of the eight state-supported Palm Beach County stations. boat owners with vessels larger than 26 feet to install toilets that pump raw sewage into a holding tank. The waste has to be dumped at a marina or a waste collection station. Boat owners who violate the law face $50 misdemeanor citations. Boaters caught dumping waste face a $250 citation and would have to appear in court "We have a lot of transient boaters from other states or countries who are totally unaware of our Clean Vessel Act," said Campora, who distributed pamphlets as she conducted inspec in 3w At "rt w i sot im won 9n, ' m rm i -i 11m 1 " rn ill T'i iHiill' n HIT -Tummr I -i Ljin T.i . . jiiiuTin i illi rn rml innriTT r mr III II A-gSV-(.AAViII. m44m
