4B THE PALM BEACH POST WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2002 w C Owner of powerboat involved in fatal crash in West Palm hospital By MICHELLE MUNDY and ANTIGONE BARTON Palm Beach Post Staff Writers Timothy Perez, a 40-year-old Jupiter man, owns the 28-foot powerboat that slammed into a smaller boat near Juno Beach Saturday night killing a Lake Worth man four days shy of his 33rd birthday, Sgt Dave Bingham of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed Tuesday. The crash, that occurred in the Intracoastal Waterway shortly before midnight, is still under investigation and Bingham declined further comment He would say only that Perez owns Dysfunctional, a 28-foot Contender powerboat involved in the crash. Officials haven't confirmed if Perez was driving the boat On Sunday, Bingham said the operator sustained serious injuries and an unnamed passenger received minor injuries. Perez, was in St Mary's Medical Center on Tuesday Circuit Court Group 3 candidates Raton, 1974-1975; municipal judge in Palm Springs, 1975-1976; senior assistant attorney general, Litigation Division for New Mexico attorney general, 1998-2001; private law practice in Palm Beach County, 1974-1997, 2002 to present Background: Bom in New Jersey but moved to Hollywood, Fla., in 1948.

Member, Board of Governors, , Anti-Defamation League, Palm Beach County. Background: Bom in Philadelphia. Moved to Miami Beach in 1950. Issues: "I think voters need to know they are electing a candidate forjudge with strong ethics who has strong civic involvement and experience in and out of the courtroom." Candidates squabbling over time in county JUDICIAL RACE from IB heard of a judicial candidate running for office who has been disciplined by the Florida Bar." That "disturbing event" was Cohn's associate not writing back a client telling him the firm was not taking the case. The Bar just reminded Cohn to make sure his associate did his job. Even though both have lived in South Florida since childhood, Berger also criticizes Cohn on his commitment to the community because he recently went to work for the New Mexico Attorney General's Office for five years. Cohn portrays Berger as a carpetbagger from Miami-Dade County. Both badly want to be judge. Berger has put $100,000 into his campaign, while Cohn has put up $50,000. Get beyond the nitpicking, and voters do have two distinct choices in this nonpartisan election. Cohn, a, former prosecutor who used to work under Carlisle's supervision, was a municipal judge for the village of Palm Springs in the mid-1970s when such jurists handled misdemeanors. He said he favored community service over jail time for juveniles. "I used to have youngsters waxing and polishing the police cars," Cohn said. Another important issue for Cohn is courtroom decorum. He is not impressed with lawyers' behavior in front of judges. "I think re- night in good condition, according to a nursing supervisor. David Hanes, owner of the Sea Sport Marina where the Dysfunctional was docked, described Perez as a "pretty consistent boater," taking the craft out two to three times a week. Hanes said Perez is a stock broker. The crash occurred when Dysfunctional came speeding through a no-wake zone near Bert Winters Park. It hit a 23-foot Robalo, killing Douglas Caramagna, 32, of Lake Worth. Dysfunctional, according to the initial investigation, was traveling at more than 25 mph at the time of the crash. Bingham said beer had been found aboard the Contender. "Witnesses," he said, "said that (the boat's occupants) appeared to be intoxicated." Staff researchers Dorothy Shea and Krista Pegnetter contributed to this report. and Name: Bennett S. Cohn Personal: 55; married to his second wife, Barbara Sue, for five years.

He's on the Board of Governors of the Anti-Defamation League and says there is more to being a good judge than just having trial experience. "I have a great degree of compassion for individuals," Berger said. "Frankly, my background is in constitutional and civil rights, which is the cornerstone of our judicial system." Both candidates have gotten their share of endorsements. The National Organization for Women gave Berger the nod, while the Fraternal Order of Police and State Attorney Barry Krischer support Cohn. But once again it could be simple demographics that will decide this race. Berger, being from Boca Raton, has a better chance at getting the crucial vote from the retirement villages to the west He is on at least one palm card. Cohn said he was never interviewed by the political groups who hand out the palm cards in south county. His opponent counters, "I just think the south county in general wants to see more representation on the bench." ) A1EA DEATHS Palm Beach County Albert!, Una, 89, of Boynt-on Beach, died Monday.
