Palm Beach Daily News - - OPINION -

Well gee, myr­iad might be stretch­ing it a bit.

Jim Col­li­gan, one of the coun­cil­men be­hind the law — who lives in the posh Sil­ver Beach neigh­bor­hood of seven-fig­ure homes — was quoted as say­ing

“We don’t want 16 peo­ple staying in a three-bed­room home.”

He should have stopped there. In­stead, the Post ar­ti­cle says, he “mocked those who need to rent their homes to make ends meet by email­ing a car­toon that ‘de­picted a mo­bile short term rental bun­ga­low on a Bev­erly Hill­billy style truck’ last year, court pa­pers say.”

Court pa­pers. But of course.

“We don’t want to be Mon­tauk,” he told the Post.

Well, we talked to Mon­tauk. They said they don’t want to be Shel­ter Is­land.

Go­ing green — Sara and Bernie Gewirz just fin­ished a nice piece of land­scap­ing near their sum­mer home.

And pretty much ev­ery­body is go­ing to be traips­ing on it.

The Gewirzes are among the ma­jor donors to a new con­ser­va­tion pro­ject of the Aquid­neck Is­land Land Trust.

The Gewirz Trail is part of what used to be Spruce Acres, a 23-acre Christ­mas tree farm strad­dling the bor­der of Mid­dle­town and Portsmouth, Rhode Is­land, two of the three towns com­pris­ing Aquid­neck Is­land. (New­port, where the Gewirzes have a sum­mer home, is the third.)

Once opened, the pub­lic will be able to tra­verse the 1.5-mile trail, which loops be­tween the two towns.

When asked about the pro­ject, Bernie said “I prom­ise I won’t yell ‘Hey, get off my lawn!’ to any­body.”

OK, he didn’t re­ally say that.

Trav­el­ogue — Some pretty nice perks come with be­ing the co-own­ers of the Findlay Gal­leries, if the itin­er­ary of Jimmy Bo­ry­nack and Adolfo Zar­alegui is any in­di­ca­tion.

After a re­lax­ing week as Bar­bara

San Damian’s house­guests in Spain — where they spied Pa­trick Park and his bride, Milly, spend­ing part of their de­layed hon­ey­moon at the Mar­bella Club — the duo are “now in Croa­tia cruis­ing the Dal­ma­tian Coast with our artist Zvon­imir Mi­hanovic,” Jimmy writes. “Then it’s off to Paris, Rome and London, all for work.”

Well, not all work: The Duke and Duchess of Marl­bor­ough are host­ing a lunch for them at Blen­heim.
