A portion of Indiantown Road between US 1 and A1A has officially been named after the late hometown hero Burt Reynolds.

To residents of Jupiter, Burt Reynolds was more than just an actor, he was to Jupiter what Eastwood is to Carmel and Schwarzenegger is to California, except that Reynolds never got into politics.

In many ways Reynolds is the man who put Jupiter on the map. Still to this day it’s not uncommon to hear that the sole thing people (mainly from up north) know about Jupiter is its affiliation with the late, great acting legend.

Reynolds’ history with the town of Jupiter stretches way back into the 70s when he was at the top of Hollywood and would travel with other stars to vacation at his 100-plus acre ranch in Jupiter Farms. The

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of attending an event at the Kravis Center for Performing Arts in Downtown West Palm Beach understands the level of class and brilliance this venue provides. I was lucky enough to walk across the Kravis Center stage as part of a graduating class of Alexander W. Dreyfoos High School of the Arts, and have experienced the wonderment of their regal ballet performance, The Nutcracker, as one of our family holiday traditions. While the Kravis Center is most notable for the performances it produces, this year outstanding remarks will be made about The Center itself after $50 million worth of upgrades are polished off.

Aside from an expanded lobby, additional restrooms, behind-the-scenes technology improvements, a valet
