23 THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 msl Holiday show 3 hours of flavorless music 3 IPOPPLERI Call for latest weather conditions, forecasts for 2,000 cities, severe weather warnings, and on the But with the possible exception of the naturally charming Austin, the singers don't know how to convey an honest emotion and it comes through in their plastic renditions. Or even worse, in their between-song banter. To hear Bryson talk about how this is the "most astute" audience he's ever seen is to know he's fed that same line to the folks in Peoria. (Here's hoping that the "astute" audience in Peoria didn't have the bad taste to rush the exits before the final song was finished.) In all, The Colors of Christmas offers music and lots of it. But then, so do K-Tel collections. Without the insincerity. Internet: DOPPLER 12000 radar refreshed every three minutes, color satellite maps and boating and tlety and discretion were in short supply throughout the Saturday-evening performance. The foursome managed to plow every chorus for its melodic explosive-ness, even when the songs ran contrary to such intentions. These were artificial Christmas trees of carols, bathed in the insincere glow of cheap holiday lights. One kept wondering when Kathie Lee Gifford was going to make her entrance with The Little Drummer Boy. Not that the singers don't have voices. Bryson and Ingram are smooth and easy tenors, and Austin is a jazzy diva who deserves a far bigger career than she's had. (As for Easton, let's just say the '80s were kind to her, but her chops pale in comparison.) S Charles Passy m Beach Post Arts Writer WEST PALM BEACH 'When the holiday season meets tte FM, the result can only mean $ae thing: The Colors of Christies. $2 That's the name of a popular Jcjir program that's made its way flm arts center to arts center glace its inception a few years ago. .".Tfie Kravis Center brought it back JcS the fourth straight year this jt weekend. The idea is music and lots of it. f his year's edition featured four singers: Peabo Bryson, Sheena Alston, James Ingram and Patti 9stin, accompanied by a Vegas-tjrle orchestra and the Ebony ;tjorale, a local gospel group. It translated to three hours of chest- Concert review nuts being roasted in an open fire. But they're chestnuts of a particular sort. The quartet's repertoire includes holiday favorites Joy to the World and 0 Come All Ye Faithful as well as their own hits such as Easton's For Your Eyes Only, Bryson's Can You Stop the Rain? and Austin and Ingram's Baby Come Home to Me. But the music and arrangements have a very specific quality: It's soul and R&B put through the spin cycle of pop. In other words, it's the mostly flavorless fare you'll hear on one of those lite FM stations. And it's fare that inevitably inspires singers to oversing.

Darby, 45, and another sky diver were at about 14,000 feet Thursday with their feet strapped to ski boards. After one maneuver, Darby's foot came away from his board and he tumbled down. A backup parachute opened, but he was hanging limp when he crashed into Lake Okeechobee. The medical examiner's office ruled Darby's death an accident, Jenkins said. ml y j iii iiiir y 1U UUUUUUI " What are you waiting For?

The owner of the boat, Donald Kania, 38, of Boynton Beach, and passengers Glaze Felton, of Lake Worth, and Jimmy Herrell, address unknown, were in the boat to go snapper fishing when they heard popping noises from the engine just before it exploded. A nearby fisherman pulled the men from the water. Felton complained of minor ankle pain and was transported by Boynton Beach Fire-Rescue to Bethesda Memorial Hospital, Ledford said. The 1973 Chris-Craft boat's motor appears to have had a fuel or electrical malfunction, Ledford said. The fire, which had flames as high as 30 feet, destroyed the fishing boat.

Wellington officials have encouraged annexation. A plan to annex 1,642 acres for mostly residential development on Forest Hill east of State Road 7 angered Greenacres officials, who had included that land in their plans since 1988. The land, when developed by Minto Homes Inc., could bring in $1 million a year in property taxes. Moving hospitals into growing municipalities is part of Universal Health Services' corporate plan. Operating 68 facilities in 20 states, the company made nearly $1.2 billion in 1996. Wellington Regional is a 120-bed acute-care hospital that opened in 1986. Services include a regional cancer center, a counseling program for the elderly and an emergency room. - By Africa RagJand Z'tialm Beach Post Staff Writer WELLINGTON Wellington Regional Medical Center soon ihay be the newest addition to the tillage. The hospital, in unincorporat-ed Palm Beach County at the northwest corner of State Road 7 and Forest Hill Boulevard, wants S-Xo become part of Wellington, and S:1Iie village's arms are wide open. The for-profit hospital and njearby undeveloped land is owned jby Universal Health Services and worth about $8 million, Wellington H finance director Francine Ramag-Ijia said. -1 The annexation could add $35,000 to village tax rolls. "We're delighted to have them s a part of the village," Mayor Kathy Foster said. Talks with hospital officials .tJ13ve been going on for about 18 months, Foster said, and Wellington met recently with hospital chief executive officer Greg Boyer to discuss final details. Boyer anticipates filing for annexation early next year. Wellington is a more attractive option than other nearby municipalities because of its lower tax rate. Wellington Regional would pay $116,000 in taxes in Green-acres and $128,000 in Royal Palm Beach. There's also the matter of 31 undeveloped acres owned by the hospital. Boyer said the hospital wants to put medical office buildings, an ambulatory care center and other medical buildings on the site. "We could develop an annexation plan that would match up with the village's comprehensive plan," he said. "With the growth out here, we're going to need to (1 Members American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, Inc
