26th Loggerhead Triathlon set for Carlin Park, A1A Dedicated is the perfect word to describe Linda Neary Robb. The avid athlete and co-owner of a triathlon sup-ply store, Running Sports, refuses to let a stress fracture in her foot prevent her from playing an active role in the man-agement of the Loggerhead Triathlon at Carlin Park. Im bummed that Im not racing but Im looking forward to working the event and seeing the other side of the race,Ž she said. So Ms. Robb, 47, will be watching on Aug. 6 while the 600 athletes with track-ers on their ankles line up in waves along the beach as the sun rises, awaiting the gunshot that will send them barreling into the water. She will be waiting for the first runners, weak with fatigue from the 3/8-mile swim, 13-mile bike ride and 3.1-mile run, to stumble triumphantly across the finish line.

Where there should have been shell, there was sand, complete with a liv-ing crab. The veterinarian and nurse treating him said each could have fit an entire forearm in the opening.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART ATTACK. 561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS.pbgmc.com/heartscreenings Door to balloon time measures the time it takes for a hospital to get a heart attack patient from its ER to its cath lab to open blocked arteries. The goal is 90 minutes. More is bad. Less is good. One team in this region is consistently doing it in less than 60 minutes. This is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. It seems to me that 27 is a very dangerous age. So is 33. Not to mention 22. When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, Give crowns and pounds and guineas, but not your heart away. Give pearls away and rubies, but keep your fancy free. But I was one-and-twenty, no use to talk to me. When I was one-and-twenty I heard him say again, The heart out of the bosom was never given in vain. Tis paid in sighs a plenty, and sold for endless rue. And now Im two-and-twenty, and Oh, tis true, tis true!Ž At any of those ages, apparently, you can die suddenly, especially if youre a rock star, or you can suffer a broken heart, which is like dying, as A.E. House-man points out in poem XIII of A Shrop-shire Lad.Ž Or both, as the death of Amy Winehouse reminded me last week. Ms. Winehouse joined what they blithely call Club 27 by surrendering her life at the same age as some other notable contemporary popingers (hence-forth, a popinger is a pop-culture singer or band member), adding additional lus-ter to her implosion. She now numbers among the dubious company of such popingers as Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hen-drix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, bluesman Robert Johnson, and Alan Blind OwlŽ Wilson of Canned Heat, to name just a few. All dead at 27. Whatever their method of demise „ overdoses, shootings either self-inflict-ed or otherwise, plane crashes, heart attacks, poisonings or death by misad-ventureŽ (those words appeared on the death certificate of Brian Jones) „ all of it boils down to a single cause. And it wasnt drugs, sex or rocknroll. They simply lacked love. Almost to a person, those who died young in such circumstances could find either no love or not enough of it, in my opinion. Any age in which love flickers like an old candle or fades like the dusk light is a dangerous age „ too dangerous for them. Im not dismissing the ungoverned and sometimes fatal instinct for adventure or the notion of bi-polar, hell-bent-for-leather melancholy as mortal causes, either. But Im not excusing any of us from our responsibilities in heading them off „ parents especially. If someone had just loved each popinger unselfishly and fully and calmly and rationally and tolerantly and humor-ously enough when he or she was young, no Club 27 would exist. Arguably, theres a tradeoff. If Club 27 didnt exist, neither would some of the stormy, angst-ridden, swashbuckling sounds those young men and women created as part of the noisiest musical culture in the history of the world. I think they were all just looking for l ove, possibly the kind it was too late to give them. Club 33, by the way, is a bit more enviable than Club 27, but only by associa-tion: 33 happens to be the Christological age. Along with Jesus, such stars as comedians John Belushi and Chris Farley, soul singer Sam Cooke, rappers Big Moe and Big Mellow, Keith Relf of The Yardbirds (if you remember them dont admit it in public), not to mention Richard II of England and St. Catherine of Sienna departed the world at that ripe young age. By way of comparison, researchers have determined that the life expectancy of people who once lived in the Upper Paleolithic (10,000 to 40,000 years ago) was 33, while in ancient Rome the life expectancy was only 28. Im not counting the pale Olithics or the ancient Romans as members of the die-young-and-unloved crowd, however, because theres a catch in the statistics. If you were living in the Upper Paleolithic and you could make it to the age of 15, you had a life expectancy of an addi-tional 39 years, giving you a grand poten-tial of 54 revolutions about the sun on this green and blue planet, apparently. That was only slightly a better deal than the Romans enjoyed. Make it to 15 along the Tiber River, and as long as you werent scrawling Romani Ite DomumŽ on the Coliseum walls (ala Monty Pythons Life of BrianŽ) you had a reasonable shot at reaching 52, even taking into account 20-year enlistments in the Roman Army or lead cups full of wine. Its a fair bet that none of those oldtimers were singing, I hope I die before I get old,Ž like The Who, who didnt, mostly. Instead, The Who got old, or at least a lot older. Roger Daltrey is 67 (which hap-pens to be the current average life expec-tancy in the world), Pete Townsend is 66, and John Entwistle died at 57, looking like the ancient mariner. Somebody must have loved them at least a little, as dif-ficult as that may appear to be. Only Keith Moon, the drummer, drew his last breath at 32 before he got old, of an overdose from a drug designed to help him avoid drinking himself to death. So whats going on here? Judging by the relatively infant mortality of celeb-rities, there are other dangerous ages besides 27, 33 and 22 (Buddy Holly). Consider 24 (James Dean), 35 (Stevie Ray Vaughn), 36 (Marilyn Monroe), 39 (Martin Luther King Jr.) 40 (John Lennon), 42 (Robert F. Kennedy) or 43 (President John F. Kennedy). But 27 and 33 have become the ages of a kind of fashionable martyrdom in our culture, it seems. Probably the kind none of us want for our children „ glit-ter, money and artistic contributions,Ž or not. Theres a single strategy for avoiding it: Spend a little more time. Work a little less time. Bark a little less and wag a little more. Pay attention now (you can get spacey later). For your children, for your Amy Winehouses, do what you can, with what you have, where you are,Ž as Teddy Roosevelt (60) said. And watch your little rock star grow up to be healthy and normal.

We discussed the buying habits of golfers and the majority of questions had to do with clubs and clothes and where to buy them. It is amazing how clothing and equipment have changed in the past 18 years. Fast-forward to 2011 and the plethora of shopping opportunities now available; however, this is not going to be a discussion of where to buy, rather a discussion of what to buy. The simple answer is „ the proper golf equipment. Recently, I was playing golf with New York DJ Ian OMalley at Trump National in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y. For those of you who have played Trump International in West Palm Beach, both courses have a signature waterfall, par-3 hole. As is my nature, I was giving Ian some pointers and glaringly obvious was the mismatch of his golf clubs to his body. As a matter of fact, I compared the length of his clubs with the length of mine, and mine were longer. Given that Ian is 64Ž and I am 56Ž, this was a recipe for disaster. There is a saying in golf „ your swing should not fit your golf clubs but rather your golf clubs should fit your swing.Ž Just as with skiing and tennis, technology has made sports much more user friendly. However, with so many golf manufacturers PGA National club-fitter takes guesswork out of proper equipmentout there, how do you choose what is right for you, not to mention that there are no industry standards? Knowing just enough about club-fitting to be dangerous, I decided to search out the experts. That is when I met Brian Thomsen at PGA Nationals club-fitting trailer. Open to anyone, this trailer is filled with the latest that technol-ogy has to offer. When I first began playing golf, technology was limited to steel shafts, forged metal irons and true woods. For those of you too young to remember, the reason they are called woodsŽ is because they were origi-nally made of wood. One of the greatest advancements in golf today is the ability of a club manufacturer to fabricate a shaft that enhances your swing and helps produce the desired trajectory and ball flight. Brian, like a good teacher, did a thorough review of my skills and medical issues. I have always believed that the best club-fitting would be when your teacher and the club-fitter were both on hand. That way your teacher, who best knows your swing, would be the perfect guide and with the assistance of the proper clubs and club-fitter, rather than trying to fit a round peg into a square hole, it would be a fits-like-a-gloveŽ experience. Fittings are not limited to clubs but they may also include grips, p utters and balls. With todays technology there are now golf balls for specific club-head speeds, just as there are different shafts. Grips have come a long way as well and you must make sure you have the right size grip for your hands. Brian taught me the correct way to clean grips „ with a wet towel and no soap, firmly rub the grip, pat dry and then allow the clubs to air dry. Once grips are no lon-ger tacky „ change them. I also learned from Brian that different grips might add weight to the club and the more weight you add to the grip, the lighter the club head will feel. This was true in my case. The remedy was to add a bit of lead tape to the club head to give me the desired results. As it turned out, I have the appro-priate irons for my swing; they just needed to have the lie angle adjusted. Because I have a swing that is more flat than upright, I need to have the angle of the shaft coming out of the club head adjust down.Oftentimes, new players are given handgy there are now golf u r a t y h e o s e t A g MARIA MARINO / FLORIDA WEEKLY S PGA National provides a club-fitting trailer so golfers can get the perfect fit. X Brian Thomsen is the club-fitter at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.GOLF me-downs and off they go to brave the game of golf. This is absolutely the wrong thing to do, especially for women and juniors. Since men are the largest segment of the golf population, it stands to reason that it will be mens clubs that will be given to new golfers. The grateful recipient, not know-ing the difference, will then try to make a swing using ill-fitting clubs and the end result will be an unhappy new golfer. I see this every time I teach. So remember, the best gift you can give a new golfer is a lesson and a club-fitting. The expression one size fits allŽ certainly does not apply to golf clubs.Here are some items that a club-fitter takes into account when evaluating your clubs:w Heightw Weightw Length of shaftw Lie anglew Swing speedw Overall strength of the golferw Agew Hand/glove sizew Handicapw Frequency of play Q „ Maria Marino is a professional golfer who teaches nationally for the LPGA and locally at the First Tee of the Palm Beaches at Dyer Park.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 place every August for the past 26 years. Committed athletes have braved the brutal summer heat and occasion-ally even monstrous waves caused by storms off the coast, coming back for more every year. There was a desire and an interest from the locals to have a triathlon, and he met the need,Ž Suzanne Neve, vice president of the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, said of Dr. Alex Keith, who founded the triathlon in 1985. Since its creation, the triathlon has been competitive to register for, and the 600 spots have been filled year after year. Tommy Cutt, director of opera-tions at the Log-gerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, is a rookie competitor. Ive always wanted to do a triathlon and this seems like a perfect fit because its benefit-ing our center,Ž Mr. Cutt s aid. The Juno Beach Marinelife Center has been selected as a beneficiary of the race. The cham-ber will donate 5 percent of the races net profits to the center. This year we brought the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in as a partial beneficiary,Ž said Ms. Neve. Thats what Id like to see more of.Ž The benefits of the triathlon solidify the work Mr. Cutt does at the center. I love my job, I feel like I make a dif-ference every single day when I go to work.Ž The Loggerhead Marine-life Center rescues and rehabilitates turtles. Although Mr. Cutt w ants to raise $2,500, he must defeat his boss, David McClymont, as the two are competing to see who can raise the most money and get the best time in the race. Mr. Cutt certainly has his work cut out for him. David and I are extremely competitive, and I think David has the advan-tage because hes done a lot of triath-lons before,Ž Mr. Cutt s aid, and then laughed. But Ill never tell him that.Ž While the two have devised a lighthearted competition, the cause theyre supporting isnt to be taken so lightly. Sea turtles are an indicator species in that theyve been around for so long,Ž Mr. Cutt s aid. Now that theyre endangered, it shows that theres some-thing wrong with our oceans.Ž Ms. Robb, who has been referred to as the First LadyŽ of triathlons, has competed in more triathlons in the last 15 years than she can remember, completing the Loggerhead Triathlon 13 times. I love it,Ž she said of competing. Doing the race is the fun part. You train really hard so you can have fun in the race, thats the icing on the cake. If youre participating, youre winning.Ž Last October, Ms. Robb was in a cycling accident during the Ironman Kona Triathlon in Hawaii, where she broke her pelvis. I have my moments when Im just not motivated,Ž she said. Theres noth-ing like a bike accident and breaking a bunch of bones to really make you lose motivation ƒ but its a healthy lifestyle; I like staying fit.Ž Its a great race whether youre racing or not,Ž she said, which is probably why she has been helping first-time triathletes train for the big day. People getting into the sport for the first time makes you want to keep doing it.Ž There are quite a few things that set the Loggerhead Triathlon apart from other races. Well, its a hometown race so its more fun. You see people you havent seen all year, so its like a big home-coming,Ž Ms. Robb said. The Florida scenery also draws people out to Carlin Park on race day. We get a lot of people from out of town because its such a nice race-course. Theres an ocean swim, and we live in such a beautiful place that people really enjoy doing the race,Ž Ms. Neve said. With such a diverse crowd (more than 30 percent arent from the area), out of townŽ can mean as far away as England. Theres a family who comes every year from London to start their vaca-tion,Ž Ms. Neve said. The whole fam-ily does the race as a relayƒtheir mom is their cheerleader.Ž Athletes of all ages compete „ the youngest in the years race is 11 and the oldest is 77. The average competitor is older than you would think,Ž Ms. Neve said, calculating the average age at 48. What with the popularity of the triathlon gaining momentum, more and more residents are becoming inter-ested in participating, another factor in the range of ages. Its definitely grown,Ž Ms. Neve said. Within the last couple of years, weve sold out sooner and sooner. This year, weve sold out in three weeks.Ž Providing an adequate amount of supplies for such a race takes not only a lot of time, but also a lot of equip-ment. The 120 volunteers help to administer the race, looking over com-petitors. Just keeping them hydrated will take 3,000 bottles of water. Logistically its well-run, we try our best to take care of the athletes and show that we appreciate them,Ž Ms. Neve said. The first-timers are always my favorite to watch cross the finish line, because theyve been training for months and theres such a sense of accomplishment.Ž In fact, everyone seems to strive for that feeling of achievement that theyve finished the race. As long as I gave 100 percent Im happy with my effort, whether I came in first or last,Ž Ms. Robb said. Mr. Cutt agrees. The satisfaction of completing would be great,Ž he said. Any opportunity to reach out to the public and let them know what we do.Ž Q TRIATHLONFrom page 1 NEVE CUTT SCOTT B.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 NEWS A9 at Juno Beachs Loggerhead Marinelife Center, where he received surgeries and experimental treatments to close the wound and protect his organs. The treatments worked, and the Marinelife Center plans to release Andre back to the ocean at 10 a.m. Aug. 3. It was a miracle. At the time he came in there was about 3 pounds of sand in that cavity and it was completely contaminated,Ž says Dr. Nancy Mettee, veterinarian at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. We had to remove all that and create some negative pres-sure to get his lung to inflate.Ž Andre „ named for Andre the Giant „ had sustained boat injuries about two weeks apart. He had a collapsed lung pneumonia and major damage to his shell. The first injury had even left his spine par-tially exposed. Caring for a turtle with such grave injuries required thinking outside the box. The Marinelife Center worked with Kinetic Concepts Inc. of Texas to use the companys V.A.C. wound therapy, a negative-pressure treatment commonly used on humans. The therapy promotes granulation „ generation of new tissue. It removes infectious material and swelling,Ž says Letizia Shaffer, an RN and clinical account manager with KCI who was involved with Andres treatment from the beginning. You basically have the best environment to promote healing.Ž But with humans and reptiles alike, medical teams need to have a way to seal the wound for the V.A.C. treat-ment to work. What was found was that he needed to be submerged in order to relieve pressure on his organs,Ž Ms. Shaf-fer says. When he was submerged because of his extreme and severe injuries, keeping a seal was a challenge. The way the plates of the carapace come together made it difficult to cre-ate a seal.Ž Enter silicon, as in whats used to seal bathtubs, showers and such. It conformed to the nuances of the shell and allowed a greater seal,Ž Ms. Shaffer says. And what about the tubing that V.A.C. requires to work? Doctors and technicians fitted a drill case with tubing and suspended it with a bungee cord over the tank so Andre could eat and move about his tank. Another KCI product, Strattice, helped to close Andres gaping wounds. Strattice, a porcine-derived product, generally is used in humans for breast reconstruction and repairing abdomi-nal wall defects and hernias. It had never before been used on an animal. As the shell grew, we wanted to ensure that the soft tissue was adher-ing to the shell,Ž Ms. Shaffer says. This product is going to be a part of him forever. The grafts took without issue. Weve been thinking outside the box. It has been an incredible working experience.Ž Dr. Mettee agrees.He actually had some spinal cord exposure in that area,Ž she says. With the Strattice application, he has this very tough scar tissueŽ to protect his organs. Its not as good as a carapace,Ž she warns, but without it, he might not have survived.A TURTLE WITH BRACES?And believe it or not, orthodontics played a role in the treatment of the toothless Andre. In February, Dr. Alberto Vargas „ orthodontist to humans „ and Dr. Mettee applied six orthodontic appli-ances to Andres shell. Four of the appliances „ called palate expand-ers „ were aimed at pulling the shell together and two were intended to push apart the shell and encourage growth. That gap should start to sl owly narrow down,Ž Dr. Mettee says. That process may never be complete and we may never knowŽ once Andre returns to the ocean. We actually helped to close the gap that he does have by 2 centimeters,Ž she says. The appliances were removed in May. Both women agree that Andre is special. From the beginning he has had the willŽ to survive, Dr. Mettee says, because a lot of turtles that came in in the condition that he did could have given up, but he never did.Ž And theres that disposition.Andre was different from almost any other turtle Ive met. Not that Ive met that many,Ž says Ms. Shaffer. He had such a gentle disposition.Ž Dr. Mettee sees too many turtles with injuries like Andres. We do see a significant number of turtles with injuries like this. Not all of them survive,Ž she says. A lot of them wash up on the beach.Ž Some injuries can be blunt trauma from the boat or from a propeller strike. The lucky ones strand alive,Ž says Dr. Mettee. Its rare to see one strand alive.Ž Dr. Mettee says she typically treats 50 to 100 injured sea turtles a year, but treated more than 150 in 2010. She has been busy this year, too, and has treat-ed 47 so far, the Marinelife Center says. Dr. Mettee says she will not watch Andre as he returns to the ocean because she hates to see him leave. Turtles are hit by boats every day, snagged in nets every day,Ž she says. We just dont ever stop worrying.Ž Ms. Shaffer will be on hand for his release. It was just amazing that we all came together and made it possible,Ž she says. It was humans that caused the problem but it was great to have been able to fix him.Ž Q TURTLEFrom page 1SHAFFER >> Andre will return to the ocean at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 3, weather and surf permitting, on the beach adjacent to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, 14200 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach.

MARTY BECKER_______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyNew guidelines make yearly shots a thing of the pastsaving benefits that far outweigh the risks would be lost, and pets would die of once-common deadly diseases few veterinari-ans see routinely anymore, such as canine distem-per. But veterinary schools and colleges, and groups like AAHA and the American Academy of Feline Practitioners, pressed on. The result: New guidelines for giving a series of vaccinations to initiate disease resistance in kittens and puppies, followed by fewer coreŽ vaccines at longer intervals for adult dogs and cats. The idea is that pets should get as many vaccines as they need but no more than that. The core vaccines protect against those diseases that are potentially more serious and that are everywhere that ani-mals can be exposed to even without direct contact. The non-core vaccines are deter-mined by the potential for exposure „ indoor cats, for example, have fewer risks. Because of the deadly threat of rabies to human health, vaccinations for this disease are handled differently. Rabies vaccination is regulated by law, and almost all states now recognize a three-year cycle as man-datory for dogs, and highly recommended for cats. (Local governments may have stricter requirements, including manda-tory rabies vaccinations for cats.)For those pet owners who think vaccinating at three-year intervals can be a money-saver: well, yes and no. What is likely the most important part of preventive care is a regular examination by a veterinarian „ twice a year is recommended by many veterinarians, who note that they dont want to diminish the value of preventive-care visits just because animals are not being vaccinated as often.In other words, whats the benefit of decreasing the risk of vaccinations if the benefits of catching other health problems early are ignored? Good preventive care that both saves money and prevents suf-fering and early death still requires seeing your veterinarian regularly. This remains true even if your pet doesnt have to see a needle on most of those visits. Q Theres one pet care routine as familiar to generations of dog and cat owners as daffodils in the spring: Yearly shots. But it may surprise many that these annual needlings are no longer necessary for most pets. The vaccinations that have prevented millions of deaths in cats, dogs and even people (in the case of rabies) are now governed by guidelines that stretch out the time between shots. Driven by a greater knowledge of potentially deadly reactions and the development of better vaccines with longer-term immunity, veterinary experts now recommend giving fewer vac-cines less often, and tailoring those shots to address the most likely risks faced by each individual dog and cat. For years, vaccinations were thought to be relatively innocuous,Ž notes my col-league Dr. Link Welborn, a Tampa board-certified specialist in dog and cat care who has headed the American Animal Hospital Associations task force on canine vaccina-tions. More vaccines was thought to be better than none. But theres no medica-tion that is not without potential for side effects. Vaccines are medications, and its important to think of them that way.Ž The changes were triggered by the realization that in some pets, the negative reac-tion to an annual shot wasnt a day of just not feeling right. In a small but significant number of cats, the problem was more deadly: cancer. That really was the impetus for the changes,Ž says Dr. Welborn. We were causing a life-threatening disease by vac-cinating. The potential for feline sarcomas raised the level of concern.ŽThe changes were controversial at first. Serious adverse vaccine reactions were rare, and some veterinarians argued that not having a reason to bring a pet in for the examinations that went with vaccinations would lead to suffering and even death from diseases if not caught early. Others believed that the changes „ and the reasons behind them „ would lead to confusion and fear in pet owners. If pets didnt get vaccines at all, they argued, the life-PET TALES Vax Pax Regular wellness checks have taken the place of yearly veterinary visits just for shots.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 The phone call came in the middle of the night. Sharon, I dont feel right!ŽMom, whats wrong?ŽThe room is spinning and my heart is throbbing.Ž Sharons mother is well into her 80s, with declining health, so Sharon had no way of knowing how serious this was. And, unfortunately, her mother lives 40 minutes away. Mom, youd better call 911. Ill get dressed and meet you at the hospital.Ž Sharons husband was out of town on business. Her brother, Jeff, lives in Boston; her sister Nancy lives in L.A. So, once again, it would be up to Sharon to run when theres an emergency. As she sped down the turnpike, the fear took over. She adored her mother and refused to enter-tain the worst-case scenario. Sharon spent the night in the emergency room. First thing in the morn-ing, she called her office to cancel the days meetings. She next called Jeff, and then Nancy to report that their mother had been admitted to the hospital for observation. Although they asked all the right questions and seemed appropriately concerned, Sharon found herself getting more and more irritat ed. She m uttered to herself: How convenient! You get to call for an update. I have to find a way to take care of Mom AND manage to keep my job!Ž Sharon didnt think of herself as a particularly negative or bitter person. Why was she feeling so resentful? It was only when the situation stabilized and her mother was back home that Sharon was able to sort out her feelings. There wasnt anything she wouldnt do for her mother, but it galled her that her siblings seemed to expect that she would drop everything whenever a problem came up. She was further irked that they seemed to blithely go about their lives, planning vacations, and what not, without a seeming care in the world. What she found most distressing was not being able to predict when the calls would come. A planner by nature, Sha-ron would be thrown off-kilter when she had to shift gears to handle her mothers emergencies. It bothered her that her sib-lings either had no idea (or didnt choose to consider) that she found it overwhelm-ing to juggle their mothers needs while trying to manage her own very full plate. What we often discover in extendedfamily emergencies is that one person usually ends up shouldering the lions share of the demands. Even if the entire family lives in close proximity, we often find that one usually steps up to the plate to assume responsibilities, while another may find convenientŽ reasons to step aside. There are many South Floridians who are placed in this un-electedŽ position of becoming the family member who lives the closest to an aged relative and is therefore the one inevitably called upon to handle all the problems. Whether they have agreed to shoulder this responsibil-ity or not, they are often faced with the expectations by others that they will be the ones on call. Of course, the out-of-town relatives invariably say they would gladly help if they could, but, isnt it ter-rible? Theyre just too far away. To be fair, many out-of-state relatives are well intended, and sincerely wish to offer support. Sometimes, though, their efforts are inadequate or misunderstood. And, they may truly not know what to say or do to be of help. During emergencies, charged emotions and exhaustion may wreak havoc on civ-ilized discussions. Caregivers may not always put into words how overwhelmed they are nor will they know how to spe-cifically spell out what they need. They may not have the strength to be gracious when they receive a well-intended phone call from a relative because the conver-sation feels like one more chore on the to-do list. Even with the best of intentions, when people are filled with negative feelings toward their siblings, they are compro-mised in their ability to be helpful to their parents. Their emotional and physical reserves may be seriously depleted as well. Obviously, clear communication, directness and consider-ation should make a big differ-ence. However, lifelong hurts, jealousies and resentments among relatives may come storming back with a ven-geance if the parties do not pay close attention and take steps to head off hard feelings. Acknowledging each others efforts is usually greatly appreciated. In Sharons case, she discovered that her siblings would actually agree to assume some of the responsibili-ties; but not until she was quite specific and spelled out what she needed them to do. Nancy in L.A. could make doc-tor appointments for their mother by phone, just as easi-ly as Sharon could in Florida. Jeff was put in charge of arranging for the medical supply deliver-ies and scheduling the aides. At first she was resentful that they hadnt figured out on their own that there were indeed ways they could help long distance. It wasnt that Sharon wanted to undermine or cre-ate conflict with her siblings. It was, in fact, important to her that she maintain close ties. However, their willingness to take this on once she asked ultimately made a huge difference. She was espe-cially gratified when they took the time to thank her for all of her efforts. Adult children play a crucial role in helping aging parents. The emotional and physical demands are such that it takes a concerted effort on everyones part to work collaboratively and supportively to provide the necessary care.

HEALTHY LIVING p linda LIPSHUTZ O llipshutz@floridaweekly.comWhen care of elderly parent falls to one sibling, it’s time to talk With summer in full swing, it was with much anticipation I planned a short trip to head out of town and visit my son who is interning in a summer job in New York. My travel to the Big Apple used to be far more frequent in days past and I have always enjoyed the time there, the city clearly deserving of its reputation and its notoriety as one of the great urban centers of the world. Back then, if you were living and working within the nonprofit world in the South, New York was the epicenter of organized philanthropy nationally, most especially if your cause was associated with the great social movements of the 60s and 70s. Then, too, heading up North was also a function of where the money was. Organized philanthropy developed more slowly in the Southeast and the purposes for which it was available often very narr owly defined. That has changed. Over time, phi-lanthropy has evolved. It became less about charity as check writing and more about philanthropy exercising roles of leadership and its engagement in tough issues. Of these issues, the Southern U.S. had plenty. The region was a bellwether, long harbor-ing highest rates of poverty, lowest rates of education, with higher, devastating rates of job loss, underemployment and unemployment. With the exception of perhaps the Delta and Indian nations, the South and Appalachia together represented our nations worst economic inequality, a vast social and economic backwater of broken promises and failed dreams. If you were from the South or the Appalachians, you carried the taint of being third world in a first world nation. Time has passed and these regions have soldiered on. Think Ralph McGill and the new South, LBJ and the War on Poverty. The yawning deficits of past failures seem hardly tangible now. Economic populism put a new coat of paint on most everything if not an outright fix on the deterioration below. The Great Recession has roiled that surface and stirred up a resonance heralding back to an earlier history. This unwinding threatens to resurrect some of the worse artifacts of those turbulent days. How soon we forget, it seems. On that note, while in New York, I visited the Tribute World Trade Center Visitor Center that has been given a temporary home in the footprint of the bombing and collapse of the World Trade Center tow-ers. The gallery at the Center is run by the families of victims who died as a result of this horrific act of terrorism. The space is small and cramped and though its goals are deeply compelling, the physical space is entirely eclipsed by the construction on a grander and more ambitious scale right across the street. You can see rising into the skyline, from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, this newest edifice to commerce emerging now at the World Trade Center site. The permanent memo-rial that is part of the plan remains deeply hidden in and under the shadows of the new buildings. It is stunning to think, as we approach the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the actual Tribute WTC Center is only as far as we have gotten in honoring and remember-ing those whose lives were taken and lost. Somehow, the architectural draw-ings dont quite fill the emptiness of that deferment. That said, the power should not be underestimated of what is offered and archived for those who visit the tem-porary Center. To visit there is to under-stand and share with others some sense of the terrible pain and suffering inflicted directly on so many. In a way, the Center has achieved a purpose that big archi-tecture is unnecessary to convey: what it means to l ove, be lov ed, and go on loving, standing on the precipice and peering into an abyss of loss, yet still finding the courage to go on living, hoping, and dreaming of a world without terror and hate. There are hundreds of photographs of those whose lives were lost that cover the walls of a room in the Memorial Center. They are snapshots from family albums given by their loved ones. The mural of faces is the face of the world, men, women and children, of every hue, color, national-ity, age, culture, ethnicity, religious faith, national dress, and sexual orientation.

Q BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF JULY 28-AUG. 3, 2011 A15 Jupiter Utilities has been awarded the 2010 Safe Drinking Water Act Excel-lence Award from the U.S. Environmen-tal Protection Agency, Region 4. The award marks the fourth time the utility has received the recognition. Seven states comprise EPAs Southeast-ern U.S. region. Jupiters water system was also the recipient of the award in 1999, 2001 and 2008. We are especially proud to be recognized for the fourth time in the past 12 years for producing a product that meets and exceeds the EPAs high qual-ity standards,Ž said David L. Brown, director of utilities for the Town of Jupiter. It reinforces our commitment to safety and reliability in all of our operations.Ž The award will be presented to the Jupiter utility by the Florida Depart-ment of Environmental Protection, on behalf of the U.S. EPA. The criteria for the award includes continuous compliance with all federal and state drinking water standards and regulations; continuous system moni-toring results which reflect outstanding administrative management, operation and maintenance; and quality customer service. According to the EPA, the goals of the award are to recognize and award water systems that are demonstrating commitment to compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act through out-standing operations and maintenance practices; to heighten overall public awareness of the contributions of pub-lic water supplies for ensuring adequate and safe drinking water; and to encour-age public support for maintaining an exemplary status. The utility is capable of producing 30 million gallons a day of ultra-pure drinking water. It serves more than 80,000 people living in Jupiter, Juno Beach and unincorporated areas of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The utilitys reverse osmosis program is one of the largest brackish water desalina-tion programs in the U.S., producing more than 70 percent of its current average daily supply by desalination. The utility recently implemented the nanofiltration treatment, which has replaced the older conventional lime softening water treatment facil-ity. Nanofiltration, like reverse osmosis, utilizes advanced membrane treat-ment technology to remove unde-sirable dissolved constituents from the groundwater. It is considered the ultimate barrier against virus and bac-teria that can be found in raw water. The nanofiltration process utilizes the fresh shallow aquifer as its supply. The reverse osmosis process utilizes brackish water from the deep Floridan Aquifer. For more information, see jupiter. fl.us/water.

FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE A21 WEEK OF JULY 28-AUG. 3, 2011The Palm Beach Zoo is a fantastic outdoor adventure. Its a place where you can follow along mysterious paths and see a different animal around each turn. Plus there are ducks, turtles and birds in and around almost every habi-tat. The first path off the main plaza leads to the flamingoes. Did you know that flamingoes get their pink color from the shrimp they eat? The Caribbean/Baha-mas and the U.S. are the only places you will definitely see flamingoes, but to be perfectly honest, while theyre pretty to look at, theyre not that interesting. The otters are, though! Playing, sliding and laughing in the water seem like a great way to spend your day. The next stop is the reptile house. Its filled with croaking frogs, hissing snakes, lizards and turtles. There are a couple of big snakes, but nothing that looks too scary or life threatening. You have to walk a little ways to see the alli-gators, which mostly just sit there. SHE IS WITTY AND QUICK. He is smart but dry.Add voices and instruments, combine them onstage and you have the makings of a musical blast.

There are romance ads for every taste „Skinny Girlfriend WantedŽ and Any Big Beautiful Women Out There?Ž „ and missed connec-tions that ask more questions than they answer ( Cute guy w ho gave me a ride on Immokalee RoadŽ). The most memorable craigslist reading comes from the sites Best OfŽ collection, a sort of greatest hits of the most hilarious, heartbreaking and sometimes depraved ads. The one currently swimming in my brain is called Bus boyfriendƒ I want to smell you again.Ž Its an ode to a brief encounter, a lamentation for a missed chance at love. We only rode the bus together three times,Ž the poster writes. The second I saw you, I smiled brightly, because you looked so nice.Ž She says the man returned her bright greeting. I didnt make conversation.

The two sat apart, and the writer never saw him again. Bus Boyfriend, where have you gone?Ž she laments. You were my bus sachetƒ You made transportation tolerable.Ž I thought of the post this past week as I went for my evening beach walk. Im a focused walker; eyes down, I dont take in the scenery or greet others out for a stroll. But for a brief peri-od „ a week at most „ I spotted a jogger who pulled me out of my moving meditating. He was older, fit, with silvered hair and a toned body. He looked like a senator. I caught him watch-ing me the first time we passed. I raised my eyes, scanning the beach, and inadvertently found him staring. He looked away quickly. The next evening, at nearly the same spot on the beach, our paths crossed again. This time I looked up, boldly, but he kept his eyes on the ground. He was there again the next night. I looked straight ahead, burned by my previous evenings attempt at friend-liness. Did he look at me? I glanced from the corners of my eyes as he passed and found his eyes on mine.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 Fun seems to be the operative here.My father was a jazz trombonist and I was kind of spoon-fed the great stan-dards in our household,Ž Ms. Sherman says. We had mostly brass players to listen to. He also encouraged me to listen to Ella and theres nothing like hearing a 5-year-old scat singer.Ž And that led to her singing with authority works by such composers as Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter and the Gershwins, as well as her own songs. Ms. Sherman also was the singer with Artie Shaws orchestra „ though not the original version,Ž she is quick to remind an interviewer. And singing with that orchestra was nothing like performing a solo show. Being a band singer is sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting,Ž she says. The singer was there for sweet-ening. They would modulate and go into the key to the singer and you know when to get up from your chair and saunter over to your microphone.Ž And the worst part?When you finish, the song continues. And I call it walking backwards,Ž she says. You walk backwards and sit down in your chair again. That took a lot of skill. I had to practice. I dont generally fall when Im seated at the piano.Ž Singing with Mr. Shaw and working with Mr. Coleman were great experi-ences. Shes quite the expert on an awful lot of music,Ž Mr. Leonhart says. When Ms. Sherman moved to New York from her hometown of Woon-socket, R.I., she sought out songwriter Cy Coleman. He had been a friend of her fathers when they performed at resorts in the Catskills. Now he was a big-name Broadway composer with such songs as Witch-craftŽ and The Best Is Yet to ComeŽ and such shows as Sweet CharityŽ under his belt. I went up there and sang and played for him,Ž Ms. Sherman says. Actually sang a couple of originals. He was very kind and took me out to lunch.Ž She became a regular visitor to Mr. Colemans office. I asked him to recommend some musicians,Ž she remembers. And the first name: Jay Leonhart.ŽA FAMILY TRADITIONIn a way, Mr. Leonhart was a natural. Both of his parents and all five of his siblings played piano. And he and his brother Bill made names for them-selves picking banjos. By their early teens, the brothers were television stars in their home-town of Baltimore and were touring the country playing the banjo. And when Mr. Leonhart was 14, he began playing bass with The Pier Five Dixieland Jazz Band in Baltimore. That led to a career in which he first played for such jazz, singing and big-band greats as Thad Jones, Mel Lewis, Tony Bennett, Marian McPartland and Jim Hall. He also has performed with everyone from James Taylor to Ozzy Osbourne to Queen Latifah. Between 1975 and 1995 he was named The Most Valuable Bassist in the recording industry three times by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sci-ences. Mr. Leonhart doesnt play banjo anymore „ the tiny metal strings tend to cut through the bass callusesŽ on his fingers, he says. He also performed with Judy Garland, not that he noticed at first. Youre so intent on playing the music correctly and letting the people who hired you know they made a good hireŽ that you dont focus on the singer, Mr. Leonhart says. If you stop to listen you may miss the music. The fact that Judy Garland is up there sing-ing doesnt make a difference until you know the music.Ž Mr. Leonhart does focus on the singer when another lady of song, his wife, Donna, is on stage. She has an album under her belt and had the wit to record such tunes as If I Only Had a Brain.Ž And his son Michael and daughter Carolyn both perform with Steely Dan. In fact, family led Mr. Leonhart to turn down a gig of recording standards with Rod Stewart. Why?I had a gig with my daughter,Ž he says. Its nice to be able to choose sessions that mean something to him. Id rather the quality of what Im doing count,Ž he says. Its fun. Id rather do that than be associated with stuff „ just commercial stuff.Ž Which brings him to working with Ms. Sherman.WORKING RELATIONSHIPWorking with Daryl is fun. Its musically very valid. You feel like youre presenting something thats very valid,Ž he says. Harmonically mean-ingful something solid melodically and a lyric that really says something.Ž Ms. Sherman says she feels much the same. First of all, he is a great bass player, he can sing and he appreciates great lyrics,Ž she says. She praises Mr. Leonharts songwriting efforts and jokes about her own. Jay is more of a songwriter than I am,Ž she says. I write when someone breaks up with me.Ž So what are those songs like?The show will have pathos,Ž she says with a giggle. And I might do that song that I mention about the briefest relationship in which a man runs off with my pocketbook.Ž But the show really is about making music among friends. And there are those standards.Theres a million mediocre love songs, so why bother,Ž Mr. Leonhart says. A few from the past really stand out, so why not do them? If youre going to do original material, try to make it meaningful.Ž Says Ms. Sherman: There is no dearth of people who respond to this music. This little hermitically sealed bottle of our art and culture is our sav-ing grace.Ž Q DUOFrom page 21 >> Daryl Sherman and Jay Leonhart perform cabaret show Aug. 5-6 and Aug. 12-13, The Colony’s Royal Room, 155 Hammon Ave., Palm Beach. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and show starts around 8 p.m. Cost: $110 for dinner and show; $70 for show only. 659-8100. O in the know Theres a white alligator that was so still I thought it was a 600-pound statue! Reptiles are cool and excitingƒ I just wish there were more of them. Exotic birds are just around the bend. Eagles, owls, vultures and macaws are some of the most breathtaking creatures at the zoo. The macaws will even talk to you! The peacocks are so beautiful and will follow you if they think you have any food at all with you. The vultures and owls just tried to stare me down. I got a little nervous because vultures, unlike other birds, have a very keen sense of smell. We spoke with Ashley Henderson, who was cleaning the bird habitat. She said the area is cleaned with a 10 percent bleach solution twice a week to control mold and bacteria contamination. According to Ashley, when you have 46 birds and chicks, they poop a LOT!Ž One of the really fun shows at the zoo is Wings Over Water,Ž where Zoo staffers Melissa and Sarah introduced the audience to different birds from a platform over Baker Lake. I learned a lot of interesting things, but some of them were kind of sad. For example, did you know that half of the Harris Hawk population dies from electrocution from sitting on power lines? Other informa-tion was more positive: the Roseate Spoonbill (which, like flamingoes, gets its color from its diet of shrimp) has come back from near-extinction levels in the 1910s, brought on by hunters capturing them for their pink feathers. Birds are so amazing that sometimes I wish I could be one. The restaurant/ concession stand wouldve made for a nice break, but we didnt stop on this visit. My friends say the food is pretty good, though. After the birds, and a quick trip through the b utterfly ga rden, you may get a sudden craving for bananas, because here come the monkeys! There are many kinds of monkeys at the zoo, including capu-chins, spider monkeys, Goeldis monkeys and black howler monkeys (one of the loudest animals in the world!). Then on to their relatives, the ring-tailed and red-bellied lemurs, golden lion tamarins and a two-toed sloth. Theres a really cool area with replicas of ancient Mayan ruins. One interesting piece of information I learned there is that animal footprints are called pug-marks, from the Hindi word for foot.Ž Moving on, we came to some animals that you just dont hear about very often: a giant anteater and a Patagonian cavy. Next we blast on over to the mammals: lions, tigers, ocelots, koalas, kangaroos, fennec fox and yellow-footed rock wal-laby. The lion and tiger are just breathtak-ingƒ so sleek and powerful, even when theyre sleeping! And the jaguar, too, famous for its speed and spots. I learned, among other things, that a kangaroos kick is so strong it can be fatal, and that deer are excellent swimmers. Rounding the final corner, we came upon the Komodo dragon, which eats up to 80 percent of its body weight in a single feeding. No wonder it looked so tiredƒ and so were we. I was sweaty and my feet were sore, but two hours had gone by and Id hardly noticed! If wed had more time, I definitely wouldve cooled off in the fountain and taken a ride on the carousel. Maybe next time. Theres lots to see and do at the zoo, just remember to bring your sunscreen and bug spray. Have fun!

FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 WEEK OF JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2011 DONT W AIT! 30% to 50%Luxury Comfort Footwear In the Gardens Square ShoppesMilitary Trail and PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens x£‡x‡££U…œi>'>Vœ“ OPEN 10-6 MONDAY THRU SATURDAY SHOE SPA SALE Naot U Born U Donald Pliner U /U"i U Salpy Thierry Rabotin U Paul Mayer U Ugg U Arche U Rieker Icon U BeautiFeel U Kork-Ease U and many more Lets get this out of the way: The only thing Friends With BenefitsŽ and Natalie Portmans No Strings AttachedŽ have in common is that theyre both romantic comedies about friendships with casual sex. In terms of supporting characters, plot details and, yes, success as a movie, the two are notably different. No Strings AttachedŽ is a better, funnier film, where-as Friends With BenefitsŽ has some amusing moments before getting weighed down with a serious tone. Fresh off a breakup, Dylan (Justin Timberlake) flies from L.A. to New York City for a job interview. At the airport hes greet-ed by the smokin hot Jamie (Mila Kunis), the corporate headhunter who got him the interview. They immediately hit it off.Im going to change your life,Ž she tells him in the years most obvious line-with-a-double-meaning, and indeed she does. She sells him on NYC, he takes the job and a beautiful, platonic friendship is born. All is well until they watch a tacky romantic comedy together and ask why relationships have to be so complicated. (Short answer: Because they are!) They then swear on an iPad Bible that theyll have no relationship, no emotions, just sexŽ and vow to remain friends no matter what. Yeah, right. Director Will Glucks (Easy AŽ) film is at its best when Dylan and Jamie are trad-ing barbs and hooking up; their chemistry feels real, and there are good laughs to enjoy. Mr. Timberlake holds the screen adequately as a co-lead, but hes also helped greatly by Ms. Kunis presence, timing and experience. His future as an actor remains bright but unproven. If the story stayed focused on comedy, Mr. Timberlake wouldve been better off; unfortunately, however, Dylan and Jamies inevitable fight nearly turns the film into a Nicholas Sparks (Dear JohnŽ) drama. It gets so heavy that we stop laughing and start rolling our eyes waiting, begging for it to end. Aside from the love/hate relationship drama, which we expect, theres also mental illness and dysfunctional family drama, which we neither expect nor want. Jamies mom (Patricia Clarkson) is an unreliable floozy who doesnt know who Jamies father is; Dylan fathers (Richard Jenkins) has Alzheimers, while his sister (Jenna Elfman) is a single parent to young Sam (Nolan Gould). Where did all the laughs go? Worse, not all of the comedy connects.Mr. Timberlake singing Kris Kross 1992 hit JumpŽ is no doubt funnier on paper than in execution, as is having Olympic snowboard gold medalist Shaun White in a cameo in which hes a jerk to Dylan. Ha! That Shaun White is cool for making fun of himself,Ž were supposed to say. But we really just feel sorry for him. Friends With BenefitsŽ tries to make fun of rom-com conventions and then subvert them while ending up in the same place that all rom-coms end up. Its a nice idea, but when you veer too far off course, everything is bound to crumble. And it does. Q „ Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.The Trip ++ (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) British comedians Steven Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves in this road comedy as they tour restaurants in northern Britain. The first time we hear their dueling impressions of Michael Caine and Sean Connery, its funny; by the fourth time its old, and the rest of the films dry British wit doesnt always translate. Not Rated: Adult language and situations.A Better Life +++ (Demian Bichir, Jose Julian, Bobby Soto) A gardener (Mr. Bichir) in L.A. buys a truck he cant afford in hopes of fulfilling the American dream and providing a bet-ter life for his son (Mr. Julian), but things dont go as planned. Strong performances from Mr. Bichir and Mr. Julian highlight this emotional drama thats occasionally heavy-handed but ultimately effective. Rated PG-13.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 +++ (Daniel Radcliffe, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman) Harry (Mr. Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Wat-son) try to find the remaining Horcruxes and kill Voldemort (Mr. Fiennes) in the franchises eighth and final film. Its a fit-ting, rousing, emotional finale to whats been a truly remarkable written and cin-ematic franchise. Kudos to the filmmak-ers for ending on such a high note. Rated PG-13.

Seriously.The space, at PGA Boulevard and U.S. 1, at one time was home to Red Fire Grill and a Bice Bistro, each casually elegant. Neither made it in that spot.Enter Carmine Giardini. Mr. Giardini, owner of Carmines La Trattoria and Umi Fishbar & Grill, brought in a version of his Jupiter restaurant, off Military Trail near Abacoa. Inside, the space is airy and bright. Brick is on the walls. Whimsical signs that read, Our Cows are Vegetarian,Ž adorn the walls. You can sit down at the bar and have counter service. Or head over to a register, place your order, take a number, have a seat and the food will be delivered to you in minutes. As Mr. Giardinis Jupiter restaurant, the emphasis is on burgers „ but not ordinary burgers. Yes, there are the classics. The Pub Burger ($5.75) is a good starting point. Just a basic burger served on sesame seed or whole-wheat roll. The roll was nicely toasted, by the way, and you can order from a range of free top-pings, including the basics „ lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and such „ and the unusual „ jalapeos, sauerkraut, tzatziki and chipotle sauces. There also are grilled onions, mushrooms and sweet peppers. And an additional 50 cents, you can add cheese or bacon. But consider some of these choices: Kobe beef burgers, plus bison, lamb and turkey. Maybe you are a vegetarian. If so, CG Burgers serves Dr. Praegers All Natural burgers. That lamb burger ($7.95) is one of the more unusual menu items. It was cooked medium, as ordered, and offered all the gamey flavor you expect from lamb. And a bison burger ($9.50) is lean but tender enough that you have to remind FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Carmine cooks it right at CG BurgersSandwiches and pizzas are the stars, but don’t forget to order onion rings scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY The chicken tenders are battered white-meat chicken served atop crisp fries. COURTESY PHOTO The California burger has avocado, sprouts and tomato. The onion rings at CG Burgers are served with a slightly piquant chipotle sauce. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYyourself that its not bad for you. And the turkey burger ($5.75) has enough spice to elevate it a step above the ordinary bland turkey patty. The nice thing about CG Burgers: The meat is freshly ground on the premises. Time it right, and you can see cooks plac-ing the meat in the grinder to produce the burgers. But burgers isnt all CG does.With all the coal-fired pizza places that seem to be popping up everywhere, why would we need one more, you might ask. But where else can you order a 12-inch pizza with as many toppings as you want for $10? And where else will you find a crisp, thin coal-fired crust like this for that price? Mr. Giardini prides himself on using San Marzano tomatoes for his slightly spicy sauce. And the toppings are generous „ plenty of pepperoni slices, if thats what you order, as well as basil, bacon, roasted red peppers, broccoli and the like. Weve not been disappointed yet. The chicken breast sandwich ($6) also has been a safe lunch bet. Tender and juicy, it is filling but not too filling. And an order of the chicken tenders ($5.95) brought a plate of deep-fried goodness. With lightly battered tender chunks of white meat chicken served atop a plate of fries. Another fried dish thats too good to pass is the onion rings ($3). An order offers plenty for sharing, but you wont want to, especially with that piquant chipotle sauce CG Burgers serves on the side. And is it our imagination, or is there something slightly spicy in the batter on the rings? Its a decadent combination. But all is not decadent at CG Burgers. The salad bar ($3.95 for a side salad, $6.95 for a single trip, $9.95 for all you can eat) offers a nice mix of greens, as well as pickles, beets, edamame, beans „ you get the idea. Throw in some meats „ bacon, pepperoni and such „ and cheeses, and you have a meal with protein. And, rarity of rarities, they offer you a chill bowl for the salad. Our only nit: We wish the jalapeos were fresh, not pickled. As you may have guessed, members of our staff are regulars at CG Burgers. And why not? Jeffrey Berman, one of the owners of Downtown at the Gardens, jokes that it is like a cafeteria for workers at many of the businesses along PGA Boulevard. I am sure that is accurate. The place is clean, the staff is friendly, though we have seen the occasional gaffe „ a server tossed a to-go order to a customer who was upset because the order was not ready as promised. It would have better to have walked the bag over to the woman and apologized. Ill blame that faux-pas on inexperience, because those gaffes are few, and thats in part because Mr. Giardini and his top managers are regular visitors to the restaurants. That shows their commitment to the area „ just like my visits show my com-mitment to having a decent lunch.
