B1 X PUTTING THE BRAKES ON VIOLATORSIn the engineering and emotion of parking, the most provocative zones wear blue. Two of these four distinct spaces here at Westwinds in south Palm Beach County, outlined in a familiar azure, posted with the unmistakable logo, a white wheelchair on a background of the same blue shade (Pantone Blue 294 or Permatone DMS 293C, marketed now by some paint compa-nies as handicap blueŽ) are vacant on this recent weekday morning. They almost crackle, though, with impending drama. Handicap parking spaces invite emotions built through lifetimes. In the daily press of motor vehicles across Palm Beach County, some driv-ers and onlookers seeing the blue-marked spaces simmer with righteous fervor; others cave to temptation.

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. A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY On at least two distinct occasions in the history of the United States, the nation found itself equipped to take over the world. The first occurred beginning in April of 1865, at the end of the Civil War. Never in history had so much military power been amassed together with so much experience and effective ability as President Lincolns. He wielded that power only near the end of his life (he was shot on April 14, 147 years ago, and died the next morning). The second occasion occurred at the end of World War II, when an Army general of such magnitude as George Patton suggested we take advantage of our muscle to put down the Soviets. He wanted to wield the Third Army right down their throats, along with everything else we had. That period of unmatched American power arguably stretched into the early 1950s, when Gen. Douglas MacArthur advo-cated nuking the Chinese. At the time, the Chinese were supporting the North Korean effort to swallow the south. They were bel-ligerent Communists, just like the Soviets. But after that suggestion, Gen. MacArthur (a belligerent democratist) found himself not only in the Korean War but right back out of it, relieved of duty by a hot-tempered civilian from Missouri with no West Point education and only aging memories of his own service more than 30 years earlier in World War I „ President Harry Truman. Lincoln and Truman were both hardnosed pragmatists. As presidents, each might well have been asked to consider a variety of muscular military options. Mexico and Canada, for example, could have been ours for the taking in 1865. Germany both east and west, along with eastern Europe and Russia, not to mention China, could have been ours for the taking beginning in 1945 or 46. But Lincoln and Truman understood something some other Americans didnt and still may not: The greatest American weapon of all „ the greatest strength we had and still have „ lies not in our sophisti-cated killing tools or our ferocious ability to employ them and to wage war. Instead, it lies in our ferocious ability to employ and wage peace „ to play the role of Samaritan or capitalist, not conqueror, even when were both or all. Lincolns greatest general, Ulysses Grant, started the peace war on Lincolns behalf beginning at Appomattox. After Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Vir-ginia on April 9, Gen. Grant allowed each man to walk away with his rifle (and a mule or horse if he had one). Truman, meanwhile, waged peace with the Marshall Plan, providing aid to our for-mer enemies, restoring their economies and ending their suffering almost on the spot. So in my book, Lincoln and Truman are two of our greatest patriots. As for Lincoln, no other wars have occurred between Americans. And 150 years later, societal discrimination based on race is gone. (Yes, it flares up from time to time in individuals, as recent events suggest.) As for Truman, more than 65 years of massive peace has followed World War II, a peace whose aberrations „ Korea, Viet-nam and possibly Iraq „ have not become world wars and probably should not have occurred at all. They were errors „ but patriotism does not exclude errors, any more than living or loving does. Patriotism merely excludes the defending of errors out of pride, vanity or jingoism. But what does patriotism include? Leftists, rightists and centrists in America prob-ably agree on this: that patriotism requires love, allegiance and defense of country. How we define those qualities varies considerably. Is the U.S. a geographic location or a set of values „ or both? Does patriotism exclude criticism? Or on the contrary does it require criticism and self-inspection? Whatever it is, we know that any grand plans or philosophies like those of Lincolns or Trumans always come down to individ-uals on the ground, men and women who get dirty, damaged or dead being patriots. I was reminded of all this when I finally met writer and author Robert Hilliard, now a month or so shy of his 87th birthday. Dr. Hilliard (he earned a doctorate from Columbia University 14 years after World War II) came from New York City to fight as a teenager at the Battle of the Bulge, from Dec. 16, 1944 to Jan. 25, 1945. He survived, unlike 19,000 other young Americans who were alive when that five-week horror kicked off. By April, he had been wounded, shipped out and hospital-ized in Paris, where he found himself on April 12, 1945, when President Franklin Roo-sevelt died. In uniform that day, Pvt. Hilliard was surprised and moved by French citizens, many of them crying, who approached and hugged or kissed him, offering consolation for the loss of his president. Then he rode back to his barracks. What moved him the most, he recalled, was the sight of 12 very tough combat veterans, most of them older than him and all of them recuperating from battle wounds, who werent playing cards. They werent shining their boots. They werent writing love letters home, or eating or drinking. Instead, they were crying, too. From Paris, he joined a unit ordered to help disarm the Germans „ all of which, by that time, would have qualified him as a bona fide American patriot. But Pvt. Hilliard wasnt through being a patriot. Between April and late fall he helped save about 10,000 Jewish survivors of the Holocaust „ not from Germans but from Americans who neglected them, cut-ting off the food and medicine they needed unless they were recompensed with favors. All that is documented and painful to admit. He stopped it by writing a letter home „ with 600 copies for all the friends and fami-lies he and his pals could contact „ begging for food and supplies. President Truman ultimately saw the letter, investigated, and ended the abuse. It amounts to this: Two patriots waging peace „ Pvt. Hilliard and President Tru-man „ did what Americans do at their best. They put down the prejudices or callous indifference of their own people, and painted tolerance and charity in red, white and blue.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYPresident Barack Obama says he wants to buy a Chevy Volt when hes out of office in five years. If getting into a General Motors electric automo-bile means so much to him, hed better hope he loses in November. What the president dubbed the car of the futureŽ in a visit to a Volt plant may not make it to January 2017. The partially government-owned General Motors has suspended pro-duction of its government-approved miracle car and temporarily laid off 1,300 workers at a Detroit plant. The halt is the result of a piddling detail lost in the gushers of praise for a big bad car company supposedly learning the errors of its environment-destroying ways „ people dont want to buy the damn thing. GM hoped to sell 10,000 Volts last year and only sold 7,500. It planned to sell 45,000 this year and is scaling back production to meet the real rather than the imaginary demand. The Volt is the Solyndra of automobiles, another Obama-touted recipient of government subsidies that was succeeding as a great paladin of the future in all the speeches and press releases until it ran into hard market realities. The Volt is too expensive, too small and too complicated to appeal to all but a tiny slice of what is already a tiny seg-ment of the car market. Hybrids have never been more than about 3 percent of all U.S. sales. To buy a Volt, you need the money to splurge and the exquisite environmental consciousness to think plugging in your car will help save the planet, even though about half of elec-tricity comes from coal. The Volt is as much affectation as car. It costs more than $40,000. At that price, perhaps GM should have made it part of the Cadillac brand rather than Chevy. According to GM, the average income of a Volt purchaser is $175,000 a year. These well-heeled buyers get a $7,500 tax credit for selecting a car out of reach of many Americans, a trick-le-up redistribution toward the upper, politically correct end of the car market. Its not that the Volt isnt a fine piece of machinery. It is a smooth ride and has been well-reviewed. But as Henry Payne of The Detroit News argues, the Chevy Volt is basically the electric version of the gas-powered Chevy Cruze. Despite the Environmental Protec-tion Agencys rating that the Volt gets 60 mpg, as a practical matter its more like 35 (it can go less than 40 miles on battery alone and then needs to switch over to gas). Thats compa-rable to the Cruze, which costs half as much, has greater range, seats more people and is easier to operate since all it requires is a visit to the filling sta-tion. GM sells more than 200,000 Cruzes a year. For all President Obamas smug confidence about his vision of the future, he doesnt truly know what car he will be driving in five years. If he stays true to his word, it might have to be a second-hand Volt. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Walking While Black: The killing of Trayvon MartinOn the rainy night of Sunday, Feb. 26, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin walked to a convenience store in Sanford, Fla. On his way home, with his Skittles and iced tea, the African-American teenager was shot and killed. The gunman, George Zimmerman, didnt run. He claimed that he killed the young man in self-defense. The Sanford police agreed and let him go. Since then, witnesses have come forward, 911 emergency calls have been released, and outrage over the killing has gone global. Trayvon Martin lived in Miami. He was visiting his father in Sanford, near Orlando, staying in the gated commu-nity known as The Retreat at Twin Lakes, where Zimmerman volunteered with the Neighborhood Watch program. The Miami Herald reported that Zimmerman was a habitual callerŽ to the police, making 46 calls since January 2011. He was out on his rounds as a self-appointed watchman, packing his concealed 9 mm pistol, when he called 911: Weve had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and theres a real suspi-cious guy ... this guy looks like hes up to no good, or hes on drugs or something.Ž Later in the call, Zimmerman exclaims, OK. These a--holes always get away. ... (Expletive), hes running.Ž Sounds of Zimmerman moving follow, along with a c ontrover sial utt erance from Zimmerman, under his breath, considered by many to be (Expletive) coons.Ž The sound of his running prompted the 911 operator to ask, Are you following him?Ž Zim-merman replied, Yeah,Ž to which the dispatcher said, OK, we dont need you to do that.Ž One of the attorneys representing the Martin family, Jasmine Rand, told me: The term coon on the audiotape ... is a very obvious racial slur against African-Americans. We also heard the neighbors come forward and say, Yeah, in this particular neighborhood, we look for young black males to be committing criminal activity. And thats exactly what George Zimmerman did that night. He found a young black male that he did not recognize, assumed that he did not belong there, and he targeted him.Ž Another 911 call that has been released is from a woman who hears someone crying for help, then a gunshot.Eyewitnesses Mary Cutcher and Selma Mora Lamilla both heard the cries, which police say could have been from Zim-merman, thus supporting his claim, even though he had a gun and outweighed Trayvon Martin by 80 pounds.Cutcher said at a press conference: I feel it was not self-defense, because I heard the crying. And if it was Zim-merman that was crying, Zimmerman would have continued crying after the shot went off. The only thing I saw that night „ I heard the crying. We were in the kitchen. I heard the crying. It was a little boy. As soon as the gun went off, the crying stopped. Therefore, it tells me it was not Zimmerman crying.Ž Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee defended his departments decision not to arrest Zimmerman, then stepped down temporarily. They bagged Martins body and took it away, labeling him a John Doe,Ž even though they had his cell-phone, which anyone, let alone law enforcement with a shooting victim, could have used to easily identify a person. They tested Martins corpse for drugs and alcohol. Zimmerman was not tested. Neighbors say that Zimmerman loaded things into a U-Haul truck and left the area. So, while the police have defended their inaction, a democratic demand for justice has ricocheted around the coun-try, prompting a U.S. Justice Department investigation. The Rev. Glenn Dames, pastor of St. James AME Church in near-by Titusville, has called Martins death a modern-day lynching.Ž His demand for the immediate arrest of Zimmerman was echoed by the organizers of the Million Hoodie MarchŽ in New York City, named after the often racially ste-reotyped sweatshirt Martin was wearing in the rain when he was shot. The National Association for the Advancement President Ben Jealous, recounting a mass meeting in a Sanford-area church, quoted a local resident who stood up and said, If you kill a dog in this town, youd be in jail the next day. Trayvon Martin was killed four weeks ago, and his killer is still walking the streets.Ž With his gun.

Thats because I knew there was a good chance that what he had was something called old dog vestibular diseaseŽ „ and that chances were good that hed be fine after a visit to my veterinarian. Which is not to say I was nonchalant about having a dog who couldnt stand without falling over. After all, Drew has been a hospice dogŽ since last summer, when he was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease. Since then, though, he has been happily toddling along with daily doses I give him from IV bags that I hang from my dining-room chandelier. But back to ODV ... or, if you will, a doggy stroke. There are few conditions veterinarians see with some regularity that really scare the pants off pet owners, but most veterinarians dont see them as major problems,Ž said Dr. Tony Johnson, clini-cal professor of emergency and critical care at the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. One of these is indeed old dog vestibular disease.Ž Dr. Johnson is a friend and Pet Connection colleague, which is why I already knew that Drew might be fine. The board-certified emergency specialist had previously written about ODV for a book project that I edited, so I knew about the sudden onset symptoms that include a loss of balance, head tilt and vomiting attributed to something akin to motion sickness. To the dog with ODV, the world appears to be spinning, explained Dr. Johnson, which makes everyone feel a little queasy. As soon as I got Drew to the hospital, our own veterinary team started eliminating other, more dire possibilities. In Drews case, that meant a blood test for his kid-ney values (fine) and a check of his blood pres-sure (also fine). Because of his nausea, he was sent home with something to settle his stomach. That, and the tincture of time. The real cause of ODV has eluded science,Ž said Dr. Johnson. It may be a mini-stroke, like a TIA (transient isch-emic attack) in people.Ž Less than a day after his initial collapse, Drew was able to stand a little and was interested in begging for a little toast. (He got what he wanted, of course.) In the majority of ODV dogs, most symp-toms resolve within a couple of weeks, said Dr. Johnson, although TLC is neces-sary while the pets are getting better. Some dogs need help getting out into the yard to relieve themselves, and some will also need to be hand-fed for a while. For those dogs who dont get better „ about a quarter of suspected ODV cases, says Dr. Johnson „ the true problem is typically a brain tumor. While only an MRI would rule out that problem „ and I didnt opt for Drew to have one „ itll be a while before I know if my little old dog will be back to what was normal for him before. In the mean-time, hell get all the TLC he needs „ along with the daily fluids he has had for months to keep his aging kidneys going. With any luck, hell be around and feeling just fine for his 16th birthday.

We are proud of the results that our efforts produced.Ž The hospital uses the integrated service provided by Stericycle that focuses on environmental best practices, train-ing to comply with complex federal and local regulations and standards and lowering expenses by managing mul-tiple waste streams with one provider. With the service, the hospital emphasizes proper waste segregation by edu-cating employees on the handling of multiple waste streams to increase its commitment through a single stream recycling program that includes alumi-num, plastic, glass and paper. U.S. hospitals generate 6,600 tons of waste each day, the statement said. The Stericycle Carbon Footprint Estimator tool is designed to help U.S. hospitals determine the amount of plas-tic, cardboard and resulting CO emis-sions diverted from the environment by switching from disposable sharps containers to reusable containers. The medical center has made that switch and will eliminate approximate-ly 25,975 pounds of plastic and 1,312 pounds of cardboard, diverting an esti-mated 15,201 pounds of CO annually, the statement said. This annual carbon diversion is equivalent to not using 783 gallons of gasoline. With the service, hospital teams are trained by health-care compliance spe-cialists regarding Environmental Pro-tection Agency and Department of Transportation regulations, and the 20 Joint Commission standards that focus on hazardous or pharmaceutical waste. Since 1986, U.S. hospitals using the Stericycle Sharps Management System and Bio Systems reusable containers have kept more than 110 million dispos-able containers out of landfills. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is a 199-bed acute care hospital on Burns Road that has served the medical and health-care needs of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast for more than 43 years.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYHere comes a guy in a late-model Acura sedan, aiming straight for a blue sign and the kind of companion space that law enforce-ment most vigorously defends, the adjacent cross-hatched access area that allows a properly equipped van or bus to offload a wheelchair. As anyone can see, no blue disabled parking placard hangs from this guys rear-view. His Florida license plate lacks the wheelchair symbol. And hes nosing his Acura into the access area. Stan Klein, a volunteer captain for the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office and the man who oversees the departments 120 unpaid parking enforcement spe-cialists, sits behind the wheel one row away. Hes touring parking lots across southern Palm Beach County on this weekday morn-ing. The white sedan hes driving, one of the units nine cars, sports the sheriffs logo and Parking Enforcement.Ž He can see the potential offender. Somebody who blocks the access aisle,Ž Mr. Klein says, thats the worst.Ž Handicap blue, he knows, is the color of civil rights, and of abuses. The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 leveled the playing field for millions in gaining equal access to facilities and then gradually transformed it, ramping entries, cutting curbs, setting aside premium spaces in parking lots both public and pri-vate. Parking spaces still called handicapŽ and disabledŽ have gone from novelty and nuisance to standard procedure. They can still be zones of cultural and sometimes personal combat. Mr. Klein is here to keep the peace ... and protect the space. The driver of the Acura has paused, halfway in. As Mr. Kleins marked car approaches, the intruder pulls back out; after it passes, he pauses again. Mr. Klein turns into the next row down and says, Well give him a minute.Ž Then Mr. Klein will have to move on. He and the volunteers he oversees cover all of the unincor-porated parts of the county, a vast and populous space, and they can count on violators. An expanding force of city and county volunteer parking enforc-ers and new cameras that can capture license plate numbers of offenders for a quick nationwide check (and a citation sent by mail) are putting a punch in ticketing. Last year, as Mr. Klein and his boss, Deputy Harold Eisenman, head of Sheriff Ric Bradshaws countywide Volunteer Services Unit, like to tell people, the Citi-zen Observer Patrol gave out more than 4,000 total citations, many calling for a state-mandated $250 fine and another $86 in court costs. Of those tickets, records arent kept of how many are for handicap parking violations, though. The county clerks office reports that nearly $104,000 was collected in 2011 in fines for tick-ets in unincorporated Palm Beach County. It was reported that about 480 tickets were issued in unincorpo-rated Palm Beach County in 2009. Some of the tickets are dismissed, some bargained down, but all, law officers and vol-unteers say, pushed the public learning curve. That curve will likely sharpen with a law set to take effect July 1, (at press time it awaited a signature from Gov. Rick Scott) calling for random reviews of handicap parking permit-holders by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles and easier report-ing of abuse online or by phone or mail. It would also give volunteer inspectors the power to confis-cate permits they find illegal, but Mr. Klein isnt sure that would mean much. Confrontation can lead quickly to violence, and its a poor substitute for whats far more effective: conscience. Volunteer enforcers have that in surplus, and they wonder how many intruders they miss. Most drivers, they say, understand and support access for the disabled. All too many, though, think the law wont apply to them. Volun-teers and the police and sheriffs departments behind them keep pushing. Enforcement can seem tricky. The ADA spawned a swarm of legislation, pushed sometimes by politicians eager to climb onto the bandwagon. State statutes, differ-ing from one to another, might be similar, but even local ordinances vary. Catching violators across the myriad crosshatch of parking areas is tough work, too.Volunteers bigfor enforcementPalm Beach County presents a kind of potpourri of parking enforcement, with police depart-ments covering their own metro areas, the county sheriff covering all of the spaces in between and gated communities and other pri-vate developments often contract-ing for their own security. Among sworn officers, meanwhile, huge cuts in budgets and staff have stretched demands and duties. Volunteers have come increasingly into play, taking on a host of responsibilities not involv-ing danger or arrests. Across a full range of activity, in fact, Mr. Eisenman says, the nearly 3,000 men and women in the Volunteer Services Unit make it the largest in the country. They are, he says, our eyes and ears in the commu-nity.Ž None carries firearms or has the detain-and-arrest power of a sworn officer, and they are quickly steered clear of trouble, urged to instantly call for backup on their radios. One group, though, can issue tickets: the men and women of parking enforcement. Few work harder than Mr. Klein, retired now from years as a lawyer and CPA, who says he benefits, too. Im very active,Ž he says. I traveled for business extensively, and then I retired. How do you turn it off? How many times can you walk through the mall or watch CNN or Fox? This is better.Ž Disability sometimes not visibleOn Blue Heron off Military in West Palm Beach, two men whose civil rights Mr. Klein and Mr. Eisenman work to protect have parking troubles of their own. Kip Monroe and Tony Harris help staff the Purple Heart office on the grounds of what a bystander might see as handicap parking paradise, Riviera Beachs Veterans Adminis-tration Hospital. Its main entrance is surrounded by a deck offering dozens of blue-painted spaces, and others wait nearby. While a new parking garage for the VA Hospital complex is being finished, though, Mr. Monroe and Mr. Harris have to jockey for spaces outside their own office in Building 10. We dont have enough space to park here,Ž Mr. Monroe says. If you dont get here by 8, youre out of luck. Were hoping the garage helps.Ž When Mr. Monroe came back from World War II, he didnt remember the return trip. As part of the Armys 76th Division, 417th Infantry, Company K, he had fought across Belgium and into Germany in the Battle of the Bulge. Two days before the war ended, a German shell hit the jeep he was riding in. They never did find my driver,Ž he says. He woke up from a coma six months later, in a hospital near Boston. After a successful career in retail clothing, he still carries shrapnel in his back. He turned 90 in October. The back can still act up, but on a good day he looks fine. Ive had a few people who have said Why are you parking there? Youre walking,Ž Mr. Monroe says. I say, Yeah, I can walk from here to here, but not much farther. Ive resented it myself when I see someone who looks healthy and I have to park way out here.Ž Mr. Harris has experiences, too. As a Navy medic attached to the Marine Corps, he served in Desert Storm, and again in Iraq and then in Afghanistan. We were in a firefight,Ž he says, and (a roadside device) blew me away. As soon as I started taking care of one of my casualties, I saw the flash from the corner of my eye, and the next thing I remember ... I cant hear. My hearing was gone. Then its coming back and its ringing. My brain felt on fire. I had to get up and take care of three other Marines.Ž He came home with six metal screws and two rods in his back. Youll see me come out of my car, and Im walking strong and firm; that might be one day,Ž he says. The next day youll see me with a cane, and Im bent over, right? Its the same guy. I pulled into a spot at the Wellington Green Mall, and I forgot to put up my placard, and this guy came up and said, Youre not sup-posed to park there. I said, What are you talking about? Im, like, Who the hell are you, the handicap police? He says, If youre going to park there, Im going to call the cops. I said, Go ahead. I went right back to my car, hung the placard and walked away. The thing is, most of the injuries with people coming back are not visible. Traumatic brain injury. Post-concussion syndrome. Thats dangerous stuff. Youre not going to see it. Amputees even, theyre walking good. You cant even tell they have a prosthesis. I know there are people who cheat. I guess what Id say is, dont make snap judgments.Ž Mr. Klein is among those charged with protecting their rights. He knows, he says, that many violations go unseen and unpunished, and he understands those who call for more stringent PARKINGFrom page A1 BETTY WELLS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Kip Monroe, who helps staff the Purple Heart office at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Riviera Beach, says people stop him and ask why he is parking in a space for the disabled. Mr. Monroe, 90, still carries shrapnel from World War II.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 NEWS A9enforcement. He also knows the wisdom of fairness and balance. We have to use common sense,Ž he says. He agrees with Mr. Monroe that some places need more blue spaces. ADA Standards for Acces-sible Design call for just one space for each 25 regular parking slots, maybe too few for a state boasting one of the countrys largest popula-tions of both military veterans and citizens over age 55. Mr. Eisenman and Mr. Klein and their volunteers also can say, with some pride, that they continue to discourage violators and promote understanding. In Palm Beach Gardens, Tom Murphy and the 65 volunteers in the citys Citizen Mobile Patrol he oversees share that feeling, and the passion behind it. After two years on the police force in New York City and a tour of duty in Vietnam, Mr. Murphy built a career in com-puter work. Retiring to Florida, he was asked in 2004 to help form a volunteer unit, then put in charge. The majority do road patrol,Ž he says, and we ask them to watch for handicap parking violations around the city. People park in handicap spots in every type of business you find. A lot of them we find in Costco, I think because the Costco handicap slots are right up along the building, theres a long, long string of them, and people pull the trigger, just going to park there quickly and run in for a bag of peanuts. The other place that amazes me is the hospital, the Gardens Hospi-tal (Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center). I dont know why, but we seem to get a fair number of sum-monses there. The Gardens Mall is not too bad. The various small strip plazas, we write them there as well.Ž Mr. Murphy says that dur-ing the fourth quarter of 2011, the volunteers wrote 60 to 80 tickets. Police officers write tickets as well. Businesses, Mr. Murphy says, have mostly adjusted. When the ADA first passed, its opponents included a host of corporations and the U.S. Chamber of Com-merce. Their main objection to the sweeping civil rights measure was cost and effort. Businesses, local and state governments and institutions of all kinds have had to engineer a major transformation of buildings and adjacent areas, and, while the key phrase might be equal treatment,Ž the key word is access.Ž Retrofitting has demanded major remodeling; some older places still need it. The landscape, though, has changed, and with it public understanding. Access ramps, curb cuts, handrails, automatic doors with push-plates, buses and vans and other vehicles fitted with lifts now seem commonplace. In 1945,Ž Kip Monroe says, there was noth-ing. You want to get around with a walker or a wheelchair, you want to park someplace close, good luck to you.Ž Despite debates over government intrusion and excessive require-ments, in promoting access for those with disabilities, at least, this federal mandate clearly worked. The concept that paved the way, underlying American civil rights, is fairness.Ž Its corollary is aware-ness,Ž something the blue lines and signs are meant to ensure. On the roads and in parking areas, fairness can take a back seat to personal need and privilege, and rage can be only a sideswipe „ or even an unwanted pause „ away. Disability can compound it. Decades of misunderstanding and stereotype, of neglect and abuse, add fuel to disagreement over a handicap space. In rallying public awareness, righteous anger might seem a great ally. For Mr. Klein and Mr. Murphy and their bosses in law enforce-ment, though, the watchwords are caution and patience. In establish-ing citizen patrols, local police and Palm Beach County sheriffs depu-ties soon realized they had to weed out the over-zealous. We had one guy we called the Ticket Nazi,Ž Mr. Klein says. There are certain guys who ... certain people who believe that theyre going to save the world. We had a guy that sat in a shopping center, and every time somebody pulled up, he went over there. Thats not acceptable. He had to go.Ž Those facing a ticket can react strongly, too. Fortunately, nobody in the history of this program has been hurt,Ž Mr. Klein says. Theres a lot of threatening, though. Weve had to call deputies. Physical harm. Going to beat you up. Kill you. If I call (sheriffs deputies) on the radio, theyll be here quick.Ž With violation and enforcement, they know, pressure is on. Police and sheriffs departments, like other city and county govern-ment agencies, have been hit hard by cuts in budget and staff, while demand for their traffic services is growing. The numbers of reg-istered vehicles and the number of licensed drivers in Florida have both topped 15 million. Handicap placards and license plates show a greater statewide increase, from 439,896 in 2008 to 544,196 last year. Unpaid citizen volunteers help make up the difference. For parking enforcement, fire lanes, grassy swales and handicap slots continue to invite lawbreakers. To glimpse the temptation, try an in-season Saturday at Town Center mall in Boca Raton. Out-side Macys, cars are circling for a berth, all of the spaces seemingly jammed ... except a half-dozen standing open under blue signs. If able-bodied drivers have one complaint left about handicap spots, its that too many stand open, though rarely on weekends during the busy season or at the holidays. In essence, law enforce-ment says Tough noogies.Ž Civil rights law mandates equal oppor-tunity and access, and it trumps something commerce otherwise celebrates: personal preference. No new excusesMr. Klein has heard most of the excuses. People love to rationalize, he says. Late in his recent tour, he ventures into the unincorporated county west of Delray Beach, past a chain of strip malls, and in one of them he spots a car stopped in a fire lane thats clearly striped in yellow and marked NO STOPPING OR STANDING. He pulls along-side, lightly taps his cars horn. Hellooo!Ž he calls. A woman behind the wheel turns his way. You cant park here.Ž Im just waiting for somebody for a minute,Ž the woman says. He might quote from a new depart-ment brochure, which shows a blue disabled parking sign and says, in loud letters, Parking Here for Just a Min ute is 60 Seconds Too Long.Ž Instead, he says, Its $30 to park here.Ž If she stays, it could be more than $300. Im not parking,Ž the woman insists. Im standing.Ž Mr. Klein nods and says, Ill be back around to give you a ticket.Ž Driving away, he adds, All I have to do is write down her license plate, and Ill mail (the summons) to her.Ž She leaves, no ticket. Anyone wanting to question the law or the process, he under-stands, can find reason. The range of what qualifies as a disabilityŽ can be debated, and the process for obtaining placards has weak points. One is a doctors certification. Anyone applying for disabled status, a placard or license plate, only needs to present an Applica-tion for Disabled Person Parking Permit Placard from Floridas Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, signed by the applicant and, under check-boxes for Long Term Disability, Perma-nent Permit or Temporary Permit, signed also by a physician. The biggest problem is anybody can go to their doctors, and the doctors can sign it, whether you need it or not,Ž Mr. Klein says. You have a doctor youve been going to for years, and you say, Im having a problem walking. Whats he going to say?Ž The ease of borrowing a placard can seem troubling, too. Without impossibly constant vigilance, whats to prevent an able-bodied spouse or relative from taking a turn? On that subject, officers and volunteers point out that each placard is marked with the hold-ers drivers license number, and sometimes the best enforcement comes from others parking nearby or walking or rolling to their own vehicles. Communication about offenders on disability Web sites helps, too. Mr. Klein says he has learned caution and prudence. Most peo-ple, in his experience, act honestly. He admits that revenue from cita-tions helps local governments, but he says the patrols most important goal isnt to punish; its to prevent. The big thing is to be out there, to be seen, to be watching,Ž Mr. Klein says. Observe and report is number one.Ž In handicap parking enforcement, he says, another key phrase is common sense.Ž You cant judge only on appearances, Mr. Klein says. A lack of public awareness can hurt, too, and an enforcer needs patience. In Palm Beach Gardens, Mr. Murphy sees misunderstanding even among those with placards. A fair number of handicapped people will park in that cross-hatched van access area, thinking its a third parking spot,Ž he says. So you get people who are valid handicapped parkers who are in fact violating the law by not know-ing what theyre doing. We also find valid handicap parkers who dont display their tag. Theyll come in to the police or to the magistrate, and someone who looks obviously handicapped, I guess they void it. They generate a lot of work. A guys got to get out of the car and write the summons, go down to the station, the officers got to deal with it.Ž Common sense can suffer even more, the men add, in a conten-tious time when so many people have to do more with less and nearly everyone seems to be in a hurry and spoiling for a fight. The volunteer patrols can take their time, keep their heads, pro-mote understanding. Theres a reason handicap parking signs are usually blue, Mr. Klein says. Blue is the color of cool.

Launching April 6, the new EcoPark admission ticket at the Central Florida ecotourism attraction will allow for a full day of adventures. The single admission will gain visitors access to six different adventures including the Zipline Safari, Cypress Canopy Cycle and four brand new adventures. The EcoPark opening will mark the completion of a year-long, $1.5 million reinvention of the attraction located at the 4,700-acre Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation Area. Most notable among the four new adventures is The Rattlesnake, the first zipline roller coaster in the U.S. This cutting-edge new experience represents the next generation of ziplining. Riders launch from a height of 65 feet, glid-ing along a rigid rail system that winds through the treetops of the pine flat-woods. The ride takes visitors swooping, jumping and dipping through the trees. Also opening is Peregrine Plunge, the longest single straightaway zipline in Florida. Measuring in at 1,300 feet in length, this adventure has breathtaking thrills and views. Shooting out over the conservation lands, the ride is meant to simulate the experience of a native pere-grine falcon diving into the distance after its prey. The adventure allows a clear line of sight looking out 10 miles over pris-tinely kept Florida conservation lands. Rounding out the four new adventures are Panther Pounce and the Swooping Crane. Panther Pounce is a 68-foot-high challenge tower that beckons the brave at heart to step off into a safely controlled rapid descent to the ground below. The Swooping Crane is an extreme swing where guests release from a height of 55 feet into a freefall before swooping back and forth between the trees and over the brush. The new EcoPark admission ticket also includes the Zipline Safari which opened in September of last year. As the biggest zipline adventure in Central Florida, the 2-hour guided journey through the tree-tops of the conservation lands includes seven different ziplines, three sky bridges and 10 connecting observation platforms. Rounding out the day is the relaxing Cypress Canopy Cycle where adventur-ers gently pedal their way through the treetops while suspended 25 feet over forested wetlands. This is a truly first of its kind collection of adventures in the U.S.A.,Ž said Ken Wilshire, general manager of Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida. Weve created what amounts to an ecotourism adventure theme park as our way to provide the thrilling experiences that Orlando vacationers are seeking. Where were different is that we use these adven-tures as a way to help visitors build last-ing connections with the conservation lands, hopefully inspiring them to join in the effort to save Floridas rapidly disap-pearing wild areas.Ž Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida donates 30 percent of all revenues to the nonprofit Allen Brous-sard Conservancy. The funds help to per-manently preserve and protect additional lands at the Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation Area, recognized as a biologi-cal hotspot hosting one of the highest concentrations of endangered and highly threatened species in the state. The new EcoPark admission ticket is $135 for adventurers ages 10 and up. Other adventures offered by Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida include the fully guid-ed Horseback Safari and Coach Safari, which are booked separately from the EcoPark ticket.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYLisa REALLY wanted to go. All her friends would be there to celebrate Bonnies special birthday. Bonnie had had a particularly upsetting year and the group was planning a special evening to show support and camaraderie. But the thought of driving an hour to get there terrified her. Lately, she couldnt bring herself to travel more than a few miles from her home. Just the thought of getting into her car set off palpitations and debilitating waves of anxiety. Lisa still could not get over the panic attack she had suffered last year. She remembered the day vividly. She had been out with her girlfriends and out of nowhere had started to hyperventilate. She was convinced she was having a heart attack. Her friends had been appropriately concerned and took her to the emergency room. All the tests turned out to be negative. The ER physician concluded that she must have had a panic attack. She was mortified, even though her friends were very supportive. Since that time, she had been avoiding many social situations, afraid that she would publicly embarrass herself again.The body has a natural response when a person is stressed or in danger. The heart speeds up, breathing acceler-ates, and there is an additional burst of energy. This fight or flight responseŽ helps a person cope with danger or run to safety. A person has a panic attack when the body goes through this change but there is no imminent danger present. Panic disorder is a state when a person experiences or anticipates panic attacks over time. Panic disorder is frightening because of the panic attacks associated with it, and also because it often leads to other complications such as phobias and depression. During panic attacks, people often have thoughts they might pass out, suf-focate or become unable to breathe. They may suffer from actual physi-cal signs of distress: hyperventilation, tightness in the chest, sweating, dizzi-ness or tingling in the extremities. The person may interpret this to be a sign of imminent psychological or physical col-lapse and become crippled with fear. As time passes, the worry that certain situ-ations might precipitate another attack becomes so intense that they avoid any feared situations, anticipating unman-ageable anxiety or embarrassment. Panic attacks themselves are not dangerous, but for those who have expe-rienced one, the fear of another attack can be terrifying, largely because there is a fear that they may legitimately go crazyŽ or spiral out of control. The level of anxiety may take on a life of its own, and may range from mild inconvenience to a total inability to face the outside world. As time passes, if the panic attacks are not addressed, peoples fears may increase to become phobias of objects or situations that are believed to trigger another attack. There are effective steps that should lessen the chance of having a panic attack. Its often difficult to isolate the specific triggers to the attack, so most specialists concur that the most effective treatment is a combination of physiological, cognitive and behavioral interventions. Muscle and breathing relaxation techniques are often pre-scribed. In addition, certain anti-anxi-ety medications or antidepressants may be prescribed to offer relief. Sometimes, even heart medications (such as beta blockers) may be recommended to con-trol irregular heartbeats. Its often very helpful for professionals to educate their clients about panic attacks by explaining how widespread the disorder is. It will be important for the client to have a complete medical examination to rule out heart or high blood pressure conditions, so there will be concrete evidence they have been given a clean bill of health. It will then be easier to reassure them that, in fact, they are not going crazyŽ or suffering a heart attack. Cognitive therapy is a very effective means of helping the person learn to identify patterns of thought that may contribute to their fears. If a person learns to understand that some of their thoughts and beliefs may trigger worry and fear, they can be taught specific strategies to change their mindset. Over time, they may understand that a panic attack is sepa-rate and independent of the trigger that may induce the attack. Coming to this understanding is key to lessening the power of any triggers. Effective behavioral interventions vary depending on the individual and the specific fears. Professionals may offer a wide range of interventions depending on their therapeutic orienta-tion, but largely the interventions con-sist of some form of exposure to the feared experience with the guidance and support of the therapist. One very effective treatment for phobias is to break down the fearful situation into small, increasingly more manageable steps and supporting the person in pushing through each inter-val, until they are able to face the most feared situation head-on. It is sometimes quite effective for a therapist to help the client go through the symptoms of the attack in a con-trolled setting, demonstrating that, in fact, these symptoms need not develop into a full-blown attack. Many people find that learning relaxation techniques by focusing on their breathing, muscle tension and positive visualization makes a difference as well. There are several books written for the lay public that outline these steps and offer strategies they can master on their own. One of the most highly acclaimed of these manuals is called When Panic Attacks,Ž by David Burns. In the book, Dr. Burns outlined a step-by-step approach that has helped count-less individuals master debilitating wor-ries and fears.

She can be reached in her Gardens office at 6302827, or at palmbeachfamilytherapy. com. HEALTHY LIVINGPanic attacks can be frightening, but are manageable linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com An orthopedic surgeon at Jupiter Medical Center performed one of the first successful total shoulder replace-ments with a rotator cuff-sparing tech-nique in South Florida. Dr. Ryan Simovitch performed the surgery on March 6. Jupiter Medical Center offers orthopedic surgeons state-of-the-art facilities and offers comprehensive rehabilitation services. JMCs Anderson Family Orthopedic and Spine Center earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for its total knee, total shoulder and total hip replacement programs. Originally presented by Dr. Laurent Lafosse, in France, the rotator cuff-sparing technique was introduced for performing a total shoulder replace-ment through the rotator cuff interval. Surgeons at the Hospital for Joint Dis-ease have collaborated with Exactech, a surgeon-founded company, to develop the equipment and instruments to facil-itate this rotator cuff-sparing approach. While it is a more difficult procedure, the rotator cuff-sparing technique allows us to use modified instruments and techniques to leave the rotator cuff intact and utilize a small window between the rotator cuff tendons,Ž said Dr. Simovitch, in a prepared statement. This eliminates the need for a sling beyond a few days and can signifi-cantly shorten the necessary time for rehab and nullify the risk of subscapu-laris non-healing or dysfunction. This is truly a cutting-edge technique poised to change the way we do total shoulder replacements and rehab them.Ž In conventional shoulder replacements, the subscapularis tendon (one of the four rotator cuff tendons) is tem-porarily released from the humerus to gain access to the glenohumeral joint, JMC reported in the statement. Once the procedure is complete, the subscapularis is reattached through a variety of techniques and graduated rehabilitation begins. The main goal of the early post-operative phase is to protect the subscapu-laris to allow for healing. If adequate healing is not achieved, consequences may include subscapularis insufficiency (reduced functionality), limited range of motion, pain, scar-tissue buildup and stiff shoulder.Ž The shoulder joint is the third most frequently replaced joint after the hip and knee, with approximately 80,000 procedures performed in the United States in 2011. Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) results from wear and tear to the joint cartilage and develops after years of constant motion and pressure on the joints. As the cartilage continues to wear, the joint becomes inflamed and can result in unbearable pain and decreased range of motion. Total shoulder replacement is an effective treatment for patients when non-surgical options fail to provide relief. The rotator cuff-sparing technique is not for everyone because of the limita-tions of instrumentation, JMC said in the statement. The technique is easier in thin patients and patients without large musculature. It also is better in patients with an appropriate bone structure. As Exactech design surgeons and I gain experience, we hope to facilitate the technique and apply it to a larger percentage of total shoulder arthro-plasty candidates,Ž said Dr. Simovitch.

Our ances-tors enjoyed jokes any day of the year. By the 1850s, potters were making puzzle jugs with holes that let liquid dribble down a shirt front and beer mugs with a ceramic frog or snake inside waiting to appear when the beer was gone. There were bronze figures that came apart to show a different figure inside, and odd ceramic birds that were really bottles with heads that could be removed. One famous American potter made pig-shaped bottles with a saying on the rear that started, In a hogs ...Ž And there were numerous bottles by the German firm Schafer and Vater that were shaped like comic men and women. But the best joke for children of the 1930s involved a tobacco tin. Prince Albert was a very popular brand of tobacco first made in 1907. It was named for the future king of England, Edward VII (called AlbertŽ by his family), and his picture was on the front. It was packaged in a rectangular red tin container with a flip lid. Since many tobaccos were sold in bags, not tins, it was special. The ultimate joke, still quoted today, is a childs call to a drugstore: Do you have Prince Albert in a can?Ž The druggists answer, Yes,Ž was followed by the young pranksters response, Then let him out,Ž followed by peals of laughter. The brand also used Chief Joseph, a Nez Perce Indian chief, as an advertising symbol in 1913-14. A large tin sign picturing both the chief and a Prince Albert tobacco tin sold recently for $8,400, proving that Prince Albert tobacco is no joke. Q: I inherited an old smoking stand. It has a label on the bottom that says, H.T. Cushman Mfg. Co., Bennington, Ver-mont.Ž The stand is 26 inches high and has an ashtray on the top, a pipe holder on each side, a drawer and a small cabi-net. Please give me some information about the maker and value. A: H.T. Cushman Manufacturing Co. was founded by Henry The-odore Cushman in 1889 and remained in busi-ness until 1980. It made all sorts of things, from pencil boxes to furniture. The company introduced smoking accessories in the 1910s and continued to make them through the 20s. Most Cushman smoking stands included a humidor plus storage space for cigar papers, cigar cutters, matches, pipe tobac-co and other smoking items. Today, Cush-man smoking stands sell for $150 to $300. Q: I have a pottery pitcher painted gold with a long-tailed orange, blue and green parrot-shaped handle. The impressed diestamped mark on the bottom of the pitch-er is Camark PotteryŽ within an outline of the state of Arkansas. Do you know anything about the company? The pitcher is in perfect condition, and Im wondering what its worth. A: Camark PotteryŽ was the trademark used by Camden Art Tile and Pottery Co. of Camden, Ark. The company was founded by Samuel J. JackŽ Carnes in 1926. Your parrot-handled pitcher is a well-known Camark specialty design called the Waffle Batter Pitcher.Ž In the 1920s, a New York City retailer had been selling similar pitchers made by an Ital-ian company. When that company could no lon-ger provide the pitchers, the retailer sent a sample to Camark, and Camark started making the pitch-ers for both the retailer and its own customers. The pitchers were made in a number of different colors and sizes and were produced for several years. The style of mark on your pitcher dates it to 1927-28. If its in great condi-tion, its worth $100 or more. Q: I now own some beautiful cut-glass pieces that belonged to my grandparents. After a recent move, I discovered that one of the bowls had split in half. Is it possible to fix this?A: It probably is possible, assuming the split is clean and in a cut, not clear, part of the glass. The monetary value of the bowl is lost, but its sentimental value, appear-ance and use can be saved. If the bowl is large and youre worried about repairing it yourself, look online for a professional who repairs glass. If you prefer repairing it yourself, prepare a work surface, have toothpicks and some kind of clamping material on hand and buy some clear epoxy glue. Apply the glue carefully, wipe the excess away and clamp the two parts together using masking tape or some other method. You can find detailed instructions online. Once repaired, the bowl can be used to hold fruit, but it may leak if filled with water. Dont wash it in the dishwasher or put it in the refrigerator. Any change in temperature can cause problems.Tip: Avoid salt water and chlorine when wearing good jewelry. They can erode metal and dim the shine on stones. Hair spray and perfume also can dull many gemstones. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 A18 Jupiter Medical Center is one of the 50 best hospitals in the country. At least thats what the HealthGrades ranking service has determined. And, HealthGrades says, JMC is one of three hospitals in Palm Beach County to make the list. The other two, Boca Raton Regional Hospital and Delray Medical Center, are in the southern part of the county. That pleases John Couris to no end. I would say what it says to the community and what it says to us is that Jupiter Medical Center is a world-class center. I could not be more proud of our team mem-bers, physicians and volunteers than I am right now,Ž said the CEO of the medical center. HealthGrades compiled 12 years of Medicare data, 150 million patient hospitalization records, and 26 diagnoses and procedures, HealthGrades to rank Americas 50 Best Hospitals and the nations 100 Best Hospitals. As our nation seeks to elevate the quality of care at all hospitals, these elite facilities provide a road map for success,Ž Dr. Arshad Rahim, HealthGrades Director of Accelerated Clinical Excellence, said in a statement. Consumers increasingly are demanding greater transparency and quality when selecting health-care providers. These hospitals are delivering. We com-mend them for their dedication to excellence in patient care.Ž Mr. Couris said that JMC received the ranking because of the attention it pays to patients, citing a commitment to respect, integrity, excellent stewardship and lifelong learning. They all come into play, not only to be recognized in 2012, but to sustain that.Ž And though it is a local hospital, Mr. Couris said JMC attracts some of the nations top physicians. We have incredibly talented doctors in this community. Our doctors have trained in some of the best facilities in the world. Theyve chosen to live in north Palm Beach because of the quality of life, because of the infrastructure. They want to raise a family here,Ž he said. Its a very unique environment, as you know, and I think it attracts very special people.Ž That commitment to excellence includes looking to the future. The not-for-profit hospital is in the midst of a $50 mil-lion campaign. We are growing and expanding right now. We are opening up a new education center at the end of April, a two-story education center with the latest technology or modalities in education,Ž he said. That building, to be called the Raso Education Center, is designed for educating physicians, medical team members and the community, he said. Its really a very cool place with cool technology,Ž he said, adding that it will include suites where students can watch surgeries being performed. Next year, JMC plans to open a 75,000-square-foot building that will house an orthopedic spine center and the Florence A. De George Childrens and Womens Healthcare Services, which will have six labor and delivery rooms, two operating rooms and a neonatal intensive care unit for premature babies. A third phase will renovate about 50,000 square feet in the existing main building, including a new concierge suite with 12 rooms; overall capacity will be increased by 26 percent, the hospital said in a news release. We have been expanding and doing very, very well and are starting to see the results,Ž Mr. Couris said. Its all about going from good to great and sustaining that excellence.Ž Q Jupiter Medical Center ranked among nation’s top 50 hospitals BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comCOURIS One of the latest Italian imports isnt a sports car, a new wine, a fabric or a fashion. Its Fig-urella, a fitness, body toning and weight loss method for women developed 30 years ago by Swiss doctors and used in Italy since 1981. The concept „ primarily low-impact exercise in a hot BubbleŽ „ was honed there and now is used at more than 500 centers around the world, including 200 in Italy. The brand began to expand globally starting in the mid-90s when a few franchise owners moved to Latin America, says President of U.S. Opera-tions Cristina Lelli. There are two Figurella outlets each in Argentina, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Chile. And now the first location in the United States has opened, at the PGA Commons shop-ping center in Palm Beach Gardens. We are so pleased to introduce Figurella to American women seeking to improve their overall health and wellness,Ž Ms. Lelli said. We look forward to becoming part of the Palm Beach community.Ž Why did the company decide to break into the American market by starting here? The company carefully analyzed many U.S. markets looking for a test location that would fit the demographic of women Figurella targets,Ž Ms. Lelli said. We decided to start in Palm Beach Gardens to see how the product is recieved, then develop the brand in the larger markets. Palm Beach Gardens also has many tourists from all over the United States during the high season who could be exposed to the brand,Ž Ms. Lelli noted. In fact, there are some snow-birds who are interested in seeing the product in markets such as Miami, Chicago and New York.Ž She said that an introductory package includes a free consultation and 10 sessions for $500, which saves $350 off its usual prices. Regularly priced packages cost $85 per session for 30 or fewer sessions or $70 per session for 85 or more. Ms. Lelli said clients are interviewed and goals identified. The workout begins when the client enters a patented machine called The Bubble, which has been heated to the normal body temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. The client then works through a 30-minute series of exercises to concentrate on problem areas, using 2-pound, weighted pulleys. The Bubble, Ms. Lelli said, is the most important part of the method as the client is doing low-impact movements in a 98-degree environ-ment „ think hot yoga. The temperature of the Bubble is the secret to success,Ž she said, because it naturally increases ones metabolism by stimulating enzymatic reactions. After that workout, clients step into a Spa Shell,Ž a 20-minute steam bath. The company says it speeds fat-burning, improves blood cir-culation and rehydrates the skin. The Spa Shell complements and accelerates the enzymatic reaction initiated in the Bubble by revving up the metabolism,Ž she said. This part of the method helps reduce water reten-tion and relaxes clients after their light work-out. The air inside the Spa Shell is enriched with oxygen and leaves the skin soft, smooth and looking brighter, almost as if the client recieved a body scrub at a spa,Ž Lelli said. Figurella is located at 5100 PGA Blvd., Suite 101, Palm Beach Gardens. The stores hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY I met a college acquaintance I hadnt seen in 10 years for brunch this week, and when he leaned in to kiss me on the cheek he asked if Id like to sit at the bar while we waited for a table. At the bar?Ž I said.Sometimes I still think Im in college, when a pricey drink and brunch would be out of my weekend budget. But my friend deftly picked up the tab for both of us, smoothly drop-ping two 20s to cover our mimosas. He paid for brunch, too, and I found myself surprised at how easy it was to talk to him. He inquired about my scrambled eggs, politely offered to let me try his smoked bacon, and I won-dered if this was the same guy whod spent a two-hour lunch my sopho-more year pointing out his sparkling qualities and then made me split the check. Apparently, a lot has changed since then. A perfect gentleman,Ž I gushed to a girlfriend later. In school my friend was a typical finance major: cocky, arrogant, self-centered. Money-focused and ego-tistical. Like a lot of men I knew (know?), he pressed to make sure I understood what a catch he was. The better catch of the two of us, he always seemed to be saying. He liked to hammer his message into me whenever we got together, which was less and less frequent over time. But during the course of our brunch, my memory of the domineer-ing man faded and I developed a new impression of him. Perhaps the abra-sive person Id known had morphed into an expansive, kind fellow. People dont change,Ž my girlfriend said with a dismissive shrug. Well, this guy did,Ž I answered stiffly. In the parking lot outside the restaurant, I thanked him for the lovely meal. As we began to part ways, I asked in passing if he played Words with Friends. Sometimes,Ž he said. Ill look you up.Ž He sent me a game request before I even made it home. He spelled H-E-NŽ for his opening salvo, and I shook my head. Novice. Now, I love Words with Friends, like I love Scrabble, like I love every competitive game ever invented. But I hate hate to lose. So when my old college friend proceeded to pummel me, I was less than thrilled. And heres the thing: It wasnt a soft pummel or a friendly pummel or even a lightly competitive pum-mel. No, he pummeled me into the ground. Even when the breath had been knocked out of me, even when I limped off the playing field, even when he had a solid 200-point lead, he continued to beat me mer-cilessly. Not such a gentleman, after all. I was quickly reminded why we werent better friends in college, why his need to feel superior in every situation grated on me and why his lack of basic courtesy left me cold. Hed managed to keep that side of himself concealed through the space of brunch, but Words with Friends brought out the worst „ and truest „ parts of his personality. It turns out he hasnt changed at all. Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSOnce not a gentleman, always not a gentleman f c t ( I T artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYMaria Martinez-Caas of Miami, Alexander Dias of St. Augustine, Valerie George of Pensacola, Christo-pher Morris of Tampa and the team of Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gmez of Miami. The issues it explores are current: identity, culture, environment and surveillance, plus the documentary. But then Mr. Wride juxtaposes those images with works from the Nortons photography collection. Take those Mountains of Florida.ŽMr. Dias explores with his camera seemingly vast mountain ranges, with majestic peaks that remind a viewer of Ansel Adams work. Then theres the tip-off.A street lamp near the edge of the image towers over the mountain. A splash in a lake overshadows the hills. And then you realize those mountains are simply piles of dirt and that lake is a puddle. Its a play on scale, but its also a play on images,Ž says Mr. Wride, who came to the Norton from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where he was curator of photography. It looks real.It is real. That is the beauty of photography. Its always true and its always false,Ž Mr. Wride says dur-ing a tour of the exhibition. Mr. Dias set out to capture these vast ranges in the drainage canals and holding ponds shopping centers and other structures that are a part of the fabric of everyday life. The beauty of this kind of photography is that you dont have to make anything. Its already there,Ž he says. The images hark back to Henry David Thoreaus existence on Walden Pond, only the places to get that close to nature have become few. My take on it is that you cant do that now, because our water is so polluted. Its me being criti-cal and asking about the environment,Ž Mr. Dias says. Other photographers in the exhibition have moved beyond Florida. Mr. del Valle and Ms. Gmez journeyed to Yucatn, where they documented the unburying of the dead and display of their skeletons in a series called En Vista.Ž As the name of the series implies, these spaces and the bones with which they are filled are meant to seen. Its beautiful and macabre at the same time. Contrast that with Mr. del Valle and Ms. Gmezs images of another unburial of sorts, the rendering of salt from a well, or even one of their series docu-menting the evolution of native buildings in Yucatn, where the building styles remain the same even as materials change with the times. Mr. Wride juxtaposed those with works from the Nortons collection, including German industrial pho-tographers Bernd and Hilla Bechers images of the cooling towers from nuclear reactors. Like Mr. del Valle and Ms. Gmezs photographs, theyre stark and exposed, and maybe „ just maybe „ meant to be seen. Also meant to be seen: The works of Ms. MartinezCaas. Her photograms „ camera-less images „ are positive images made on photographic paper. It turns black where the light hits, and it remains white where the light does not hit. Among her earlier works on display are lean, vertical pieces that tower along one gallery wall like totems. The images she uses in those totems speak to her Cuban heritage. But also the vetting of the photographs themselves „ so the negatives used in order to create these „ speak of her past, her personal past,Ž Mr. Wride says. Ms. Martinez-Caas is notorious for saying, I cant draw.Ž So says Mr. Wride.Well, I cant,Ž Ms. Martinez-Caas says.But there is no ink or paint involved, especially in works from 20 years ago and more. A lot of people when they look at the early work, think there is ink and actually drawing on the work, but there is not. It all was done photographically. It was just white light exposing photographic paper,Ž she says. Ms. Martinez-Caas trained as a photographer, but she bills herself as a photo-based artist. In her earlier works, everything was created photographically „ everything is contained within the negative. The new works have a different spirit. Take the monumental (its 8 feet by 8 feet) Untitled (After Bacon & Muybridge),Ž a 2011 mixed media work on veneer. Though Ms. Martinez-Caas says she cannot paint or draw, there is something about the mixing of the two visual mediums that has always fascinated me.Ž For inspiration, she looked to the works of artists Francis Bacon and Eadweard Muybridge. They used photography as a way to create paintings. So I decided, why dont I look at these paintings as a way to create my photos? And thats how it kind of started everything,Ž she says. The work has a collage effect, of photographic images combined with bold strokes of red. That red is the material photographers use to keep light from reaching photographic paper. She wanted to bring that to her viewers. What people never see of my work is the objects of the negative and they are as beautiful to me as the work itself, and I decided to bring the manual aspect of making and participating in the creation of every step of the photographic image,Ž she says. That includes a combination of collage, developing or exposing of photographic paper, image transfer, painting and graphite. Pensacola artist Valerie George also works in a variety of media. Her works fill the center of the gallery. Some are video; others are still photography. And still others combine the two. They explore the boundaries between public and private space. For one project, Ms. George drove her vintage Mercedes-Benz station wagon across the country. There were microphones set up inside and outside the vehicle and she combined the sounds of both in the vehicle. Believe it or not, the heap made it all the way across the country and back,Ž she says. She created multiple volumes of work from that trip, adding, unfortunately, the car was smashed.Ž WATCH US GO!!!,Ž a 2008 video animation displayed on multiple television monitors, relies on foot-age depicting Ms. Georges friends dancing on the street in front of a police surveillance camera. But the footage is not video „ the frames are created from still photographs of the dancers. Theyre paired with images by John Schnabel, Mary Alper and Shizuka Yokomizo. Ms. Yokomizo also challenged that notion of public and private by writing to people and asking them to participate by turning on lights, opening curtains and standing in windows while wearing their usual cloth-ing; those who chose not to participate simply could leave the window coverings closed. That helps bring the exhibition full circle for the Nortons Mr. Wride. The exhibition gave him an opportunity to get to know the state „ he had to travel the length of it to meet his artists in their own environments. This is kind of how I spent the last three months,Ž he says. He also has gotten to know the Nortons collection a little better. There are these little pockets of great material that just p as sed through. Ill be finding them for the next year, or the next five years, depending on how it goes,Ž he says. But I think thats the beauty of a proj-ect like this is that you discover that stuff and that you discover really good artists who are working in Florida.Ž Q NORTONFrom page B1 A still from Valerie George’s video animation, “WATCH US GO!!!,” from 2008. “Naturalia XVIII,” a 2002 silver halide (Dura-flex) print by Maria Martinez-Caas. >>What: “Outside/In” >>When: Through June 10 >>Where: The Norton Museum of Art, 1415 S.

One advantage of this procedure is that it keeps the defenders from breaking new suits, but the primary purpose is to completely deplete declarers trumps, after which the defenders will be in position to cash whatever cards remain in their long suits. When declarer has a plentiful supply of trumps, he can usually withstand this attack on his trump suit. But when he has only seven trumps divided 5-2 or 4-3, his situation often becomes precarious. Consider this deal where South reaches four spades as shown. West leads a heart, and hearts are continued. Declarer ruffs, and if he now draws trumps, exhausting his trumps in the process, he goes down one. He finishes with only nine tricks -five spades and four clubs. When he leads a diamond at trick 11, the defenders score the ace of diamonds and two more heart tricks. This result should not come as any great surprise to South. The 4-2 division of the opposing trumps is more likely than any other, occurring nearly half the time. To defuse this potential threat to his contract, declarer should adopt a more cautious approach. After trumping the heart at trick two, he should lead the jack of diamonds. If the jack holds the trick, he can then draw trumps and romp home with 10 tricks. If the jack of diamonds is taken by the ace and a heart is returned, South must be careful not to ruff, which would reduce him to three trumps and leave him prey to a 4-2 trump split. Instead, he discards a club or a diamond, leaving his trump holding intact. A heart continua-tion can then be ruffed in dummy, after which he has the rest of the tricks and his contract.

Then it will be you lovely Lambs who will be wearing those well-deserved laurels. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The facts about a new opportunity are still emerging. Wait until theyre all out in the open, and then use your keen business sense to help make the right decision. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel confused, even hurt by a friend who suddenly puts distance between you. If she or he wont discuss it, dont push it. An explanation should come in time. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your willingness to be part of the team opens doors that had been shut to you. Keep them open by keeping your prom-ises even when your commitment seems to be wavering. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Congratulations. Youre really getting things done to purr-fection. And dont forget to take a catnap now and again to keep those energy levels up and bristling for action.Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your plain-talkingŽ honesty is admirable. But sometimes sharp words can leave painful scars. Be careful that what you say doesnt come back to hurt you.Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A stress-filled period takes a positive turn as you deal with the underlying problem. Act now to avoid a recurrence by changing some basic rules in your relationship. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your rising energy levels make it easier for you to achieve some important objectives. This could lead to a big boost in how youre per-ceived, both at home and on the job. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A changing picture begins to emerge as you learn more about an offer that seemed so right but could be so wrong. Look to a trusted adviser for guidance. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Spiritual aspects are strong. Take time to reflect on the path youre on and where you hope it will lead you. Its also a good time to reach out to loved ones. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You could be assuming far too many responsibilities, whether its at work or in personal matters. Be care-ful that youre not weighed down by them. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre getting closer to your goals. And since nothing succeeds like suc-cess (or the promise thereof), dont be surprised to find new supporters swim-ming alongside you.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 B9 +++ Is it worth $10? YesHeres some irony for you: The people most interested in seeing The Hun-ger GamesŽ are those whove read the book. But oddly, those who havent read the book will enjoy the movie more, because it works reasonably well on its own, though not as well as fans of the book will hope. Yes, I have read the book.And I can fairly say this is a solid, economical adapta-tion without any major chang-es (the author of the novel, Suzanne Collins, worked on the screenplay). The story is about Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Law-rence), who in a dystopian future lives a paltry existence with her sister Prim (Wil-low Shields), their mother (Paula Malcolmson) and her best friend Gale (Liam Hem-sworth). Every year, as stipulated by government decree, each of the 12 districts of the country must select a 12-to-18-year-old male and female to fight to the death in the titular Hunger GamesŽ competition, which is broadcast nationwide. Often this means a tearful goodbye to friends and loved ones, which is what Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) do after theyre selected. Theyre then whisked away to the Capitol and introduced to their mentor, the perpetually drunk Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), and Kat-niss fashion designer Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), who becomes a trusted friend. For readers, the fun part of seeing the story visualized is that it takes us out of Katniss first-person perspective and allows for a more objective point of view. What this means is that rather than only seeing/knowing what Katniss knows as we read along, director Gary Ross is able to jump from Caesar (Stan-ley Tucci) in the broadcast booth to Haymitch looking on to the Gamemak-ers manipulating the game. Viewers see whats going on behind the scenes in a way that we could only presume hap-pened in the book. The futuristic costume, set and production designs are top notch, but Ross (SeabiscuitŽ) is not adept at shooting action. Many of the up-tempo moments are rushed and cluttered with no sense of space or clarity. This is frustrating because the jerky camera and quick edits result in befuddlement instead of heightened tension. Then again, maybe Ross knows this and avoided action whenever possible. The biggest knock on the film „ and the book has a similar problem „ is that it takes too long to get to the games. The running time of 142 minutes isnt an issue until you see that the first 80 or so lead up to the games, leaving the remaining 60 to rush through the games and get to the conclusion that sets up the sequel (you do know the book is part of a trilogy, right?). More time at the games and less with the minutiae of training in the Capitol wouldve been dearly welcome.Lovers of the book will have their qualms and will probably be a smidge disappointed, but The Hunger GamesŽ is certainly no travesty. And if nothing else, its nowhere near TwilightŽ awful. Q 21 Jump Street +++ (Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube) Youthful police officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) go undercover at a high school to infiltrate a drug ring. Off-the-wall funny and with great spirit, this serves as proof that cruddy old TV shows can make darn good movies. Rated R.Seeking Justice +++ (Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce) After his wife (Jones) is savage-ly attacked, Will (Cage) makes a deal with a stranger named Simon (Pearce) to take care ofŽ the assailant. But when Will has to return the favor, trouble ensues. Its a good, tense thriller thatll have you questioning your own moral-ity when its over. Rated R.Casa de mi Padre ++ (Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez) Armando (Ferrell) must protect his fathers Mexican ranch from a drug lord (Gael Garcia Bernal). Its a silly Will Ferrell comedy in every way, except one: Its entirely in Span-ish. Unfortunately, the comedy doesnt consistently translate through subtitles. Rated R.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Actor Gary Beach, composer-lyricist Jerry Herman, star Vicki Lewis, Producing Artistic Direc-tor Andrew Kato and Broadway producer Fran Weissler pose backstage at the Maltz. Youd think hed have seen it enough times, but Jerry Herman, the composer-lyricist of Hello, Dolly!,Ž dropped in on the March 23 performance of his best-known work at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Mr. Herman, a University of Miami grad and part-time resident, drove up from Miami to see the production. Producing Artistic Director Andrew Kato knew of the impending visit but most of the cast was kept in the dark until the curtain call, when Mr. Kato came out and pointed out the celebrity in the audience. Then Mr. Herman came back-stage and congratulated the cast who were described as blown away.Ž Q „ Bill HirschmanWell, Hello, Jerry!Of course, any musical revue of Woody Guthries work must end with the anthem This Land Is Your Land.Ž What the musical revue Woody SezŽ at Arts Garage in Delray Beach does is put that expres-sion of patriotism and brotherhood in a sobering context of Guthries chastening life experiences. The man who wrote of diverse people forged into a joint identity by the com-mon belief in a grand dream of what we could be, that man had seen crushing poverty far more widespread than even todays plight; an indifference, even col-lusion, among the people chosen by us to serve us, and internecine oppression waged with violence. The song co-opted by middle-class sleep-away camps and truck commer-cials is a testament to Guthries faith in the promise of America. The song, in fact, the entire 90 minutes of music and storytelling, is testament to the indomitable American spirit, a facile catchphrase today, but which was sorely tested in the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression when adversity had the palpable touch, smell and taste of severe deprivation. The play frequently quotes the adage, Everything we do is aimed at going on.Ž And it goes without saying that on this, the centenary of his birth, the issues he wrote and sang about have a deafening resonance in these days of class warfare, 99 percenters and Occupy Wall Street. Arts Garage’s “Woody Sez” is affable, moving songbook of Guthrie fare >>” Woody Sez” runs through April 8 at The Theatre at Arts Garage, 180 NE First St., Delray Beach (north side of the parking garage). Performances 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, 6 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $25-$35. Call 450-6357 or see artsgarage.org. If you go COURTESY PHOTO A hootenanny in “Woody Sez” at Arts Garage. BY BILL HIRSCHMANbill@floridatheateronstage.comREVIEW That said, Woody SezŽ is a rousing and touching production as affable and winning as David M. Lutken who nar-rates and sings as a stand-in for Guthrie. He and equally skilled compatriots, David Finch, Megan Loomis and Helen Jean Russell, expertly play an orches-tras worth of acoustic instruments from harmonica to mandolin, banjo to fiddle, jaw harp to spoons. They deliver more than 25 Guthrie songs illustrating the troubadours life and the tumultuous social upheaval he documented in his huge songbook. The tunes and sentiments resonate for any audience but are guaranteed to strike a chord in an audience of a cer-tain age. At Sundays matinee, mesmer-ized audience members clapped to the music, mouthing the lyrics and finally joining in out loud. The production values are simple: period clothing, a few backdrops, some wooden crates seeming made out of old boxcar walls. Appropriately, several of the instruments, notably Lutkens guitar, show the wear and tear of miles on the road. The 2007 touring revue was booked into the new Theatre at Arts Garage by Louis Tyrrell, the former chief at Florida Stage. Tyrrell met Lutken and some of his other collaborators when they performed an earlier Guthrie show at the Manalapan stage in 1993. The piece created by Mr. Lutken, director Nick Corley and others cel-ebrates the populist who said he was writing for people who have no voice but who are living what Im singing about.Ž In this post-modern era of archness where few people wants to get caught dead with genuine emo-tion, Guthries music is unabashedly forthright about world brotherhood and social justice, embracing unionism and socialism as positive movements toward achieving those ends. A man sitting at the table with us said, Folk music, not Walt Whitman, is the poetry of America.Ž The show goes a long way for making that case with cracker barrel lyrics like Its hard to tumble weve youve got no to place to fall.Ž And theres the entire six-minute epic The Ballad of Tom JoadŽ summarizing Steinbecks The Grapes of Wrath that this produc-tion weaves stanza by stanza through the production. What chokes your throat in this show is the profound pride in being the heir to people who despite struggling with real hardship, still believed in the inher-ent goodness of their neighbors and saw worth in banding together with them to make a better world for everyone. Pride, and shame at what we sometimes seem to have lost.

Its fabulous to get to lis-ten to that music every day.Ž She has been putting a cast of 50 through their paces for the ballet, which has a lilting score by Prokofiev. It stretches my trainee and apprentice dancers in the parts theyve been given. Its the most fun in the rehearsal process Ive seen, ever,Ž she says. That rehearsal process is daily. For Romeo and Juliet,Ž Ms. Smith has a dozen professional dancers and 38 students. Local audiences will recognize some of the names „ Rogelio Corralas and Lily Ojea as the title characters and Idael German as Benvolio. And they have been rehearsing every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. since January at the com-panys Palm Beach Gardens studios. That represents hard work, Ms. Smith says. As a former dancer, she should know.Early on, realized I really love teaching. Thats where I felt most at home,Ž she says. Her company, which started as a student ensemble, has been around for 11 years now, and the performances are part of the professional development students need. They have to grow into artists and to do that you have to give them full-size productions,Ž she says. Its a great way to work. I really enjoy my job.Ž Ms. Smith says her students learn from the professional dancers. Weve worked really hard to create something unique in the fact that we have professionals. Its great for my students because theyre mentoring them. Theyre watching how professionals work,Ž she says. Its great because theyre all just lovely people.Ž But lovely people have to make a living. We lost $30,000 of state and county funding last year,Ž Ms. Smith says. We canceled that last show (of the season), and right after canceling it we were contacted by the city of West Palm BeachŽ to perform shows on the downtown waterfront. Look for per-formances of A Midsummer Nights DreamŽ on Mothers Day and a show inspired by the music of the Rat Pack at a later date. And look for the com-pany to head to Moscow this summer. Now I can pay their salaries for another five weeks, and thats pretty exciting for me,Ž she says.

ONE MORE NIGHT.ONE MORE REASON. BEACH READING ‘Pure’ by Julianna Baggott(Grand Central Publishing, $25.99)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELL Nine years ago, the Detonations turned civilization to ash. Its the rare creature that wasnt touched by the searing lights, burned, deformed or fused with some-thing „ metal, plastic, the earth at their feet, even other living beings. In this new land-scape, man-eating Dusts and Beasts lie in wait for unwary prey, the corrupt military relentlessly prowls the streets for recruits and targets, and fading memories of Before have become treasured currency. Suffering and desperate, the survivors gaze hungrily at the Dome „ the haven of those lucky few who managed to escape the devastation „ and recite like a prayer the long-ago promise, Help is coming.Ž But Pressia has no more time to wait. She has turned 16, and now the soldiers are coming for her. In contrast, Partridges life under the Dome is highly civilized: lessons, school dances, mandatory gene-altering sessions „ the usual routine. But when a chance remark from his father gives reason for Partridge to hope his long-lost mother might still be alive outside, he resolves to break out and find her. Of course, he is dreadfully misinformed and underprepared for what he will find out there ... but life in the Dome may not have left him so soft as one would believe. Of course, Partridge and Pressia are destined to meet, and when they do, the astonishing secrets they uncover together may just change the future of their world. The first installment in an intriguing new sci-fi series, PureŽ doesnt stint on the horror of its premise. The pages are filled with uncomfortable, nightmarish imagery as well as flashes of macabre beauty: a boy with birds fluttering in his back, a girl joined forever to the doll she can never outgrow. PureŽ is a pow-erful vision of a future that is like its denizens, a Frankenstein jumble of the familiar and the unimaginable.

But I am not him.Ž „ Neil Gaiman, quotes Odin in American GodsŽBreathe, Ke-mo sa-be.Ke-mo sa-be is the Potawatomi word. Potawatomi is a Central Algonquin lan-guage spoken by 13 Potawatomi people who live around the Great Lakes in Michigan and Wisconsin, Kansas and southern Ontario, Canada. There are attempts to try to revive this language, now spoken by so few people. The Potawatomi people refer to themselves in their own language as Bodewadmi, which means the keepers of the fire. They were part of a long-term alli-ance of tribes, the Council of the Three Fires. All this changed during the Potawatomi Trail of Death in the early 1800s. This was a forced removal of the tribe from their home in Indi-ana to Kansas, pushing them west of the expanding pop-ulation. Many died. It is incredible that many know this Potawatomi word from the same con-text in which are known the opening bars of Rossinis William Tell Over-ture.Ž You know this context: The Lone Ranger. This was a 30s radio show and a 50s-60s television series. And the first image from the new Lone Ranger film starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer recently appeared in entertainment news from India to L.A., heralding the new films expected arrival in May 2013. The images just keep coming, long after the opening words faded away: A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver! The Lone Ranger! ... With his faithful Indi-an compan-ion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early western United States! Nowhere in the pages of history can one find a greater champion of justice! Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear! From out of the past come the thundering hoof beats of the great horse Silver! The Lone Rang-er rides again! Come on, Silver! Lets go, big fellow! Hi-yo Silver! Away!Ž Tonto, whose name means Wild One, was introduced into the show, thus have I heard, in order to give the Lone Ranger someone to talk to. The masked hero, who did nothing that would be later reproved, could not be found talking to himself. So he rescued his faithful friend, who then followed him relentlessly. No reason was ever given to explain why, rather than simply going about his own business, he followed the Lone Ranger. Or why the Lone Ranger repeatedly sent him to town alone for supplies, which always resulted in his being assaulted, beaten within an inch of his life, and then rescued by his friend. Each called the other Ke-mo sa-be, a term of endearment meaning faithful friend or trusty scout. Now we know what happens to mythology in America. Perhaps Neil Gaiman was wrong. Evidently smoking guns are still becoming. Q „ Rx is the FloridaWeekly muse who hopes to inspire profound mutiny in all those who care to read.

The phrase all in a days workŽ encompasses quite a lot these days, when a surgeon can routinely perform four joint replacements on Tuesdays, and four-to-five arthroscopic shoulder surgeries on Fridays. Just the previous Sunday night, he is saying, seated at a dark-wood conference table in the PGA Boulevard office of the Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute, he operated on a guy whod been playing tennis and broke his tibia, the larger of the two bones below the knee. Hes young, healthy, about 50 years old, lives in a three-story walk-up in New York,Ž the doctor says, and his idea of fun is not walking around in a long leg cast for weeks.Ž Nor did he have to. I inserted an intramedullary rod into the center of the bone, traversing the fracture site to prevent rotation,Ž Dr. Leighton says, then translates: The rod acts as an internal splint for the broken shinbone, allowing the patient to put weight on the leg and get on with his life,Ž even as the bone heals.

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. Energy conservation is key to sense of well-being C hiropractic care plays a role in almost all aspects of health and well-being. In terms of your bodys internal energy conservation system, chiropractic care is important to help ensure that all the various mechanisms are functioning smoothly. Your body is made up of systems, organs, tissues, and cells, and the proper functioning of every aspect of these structures depends on receiv-ing timely infor-mation from the master system, i.e., the nerve system. At the deepest level, cells need appropriate instructions as to when to perform certain tasks, how much to do, or how much to pro-duce. The nerve system transfers mes-sages from the brain to orchestrate all of these activi-ties. By making sure a persons spine is aligned, chiropractic care helps smooth out the pathways on which these nerve signals travel. Chiropractic care helps all of your bodys systems to do the job they were designed to do. The worlds supply of fossil fuels has been dwindling for a long time. Its been easy to pretend this wasnt happening because there seemed to be an endless quantity of oil and gas reserves. How could we ever run out? All we had to do was drill another well or lay down another pipeline. But now it seems that ineffective public policies and naive consumer practices have amplified the effects of two critical factors: an exploding global popula-tion and surging demands of thriving new economies in formerly developing nations. Energy conservation has become an important topic around the globe, in communities, nations, and confedera-tions such as the European Union. Energy conservation is not only criti-cally important for global stability. It also serves as an important metaphor for the health and well-being of indi-viduals. Physiologically, humans have their own energy conservation systems. For example, your heart rate is tightly reg-ulated. If your heart beats too fast for too long, owing to ongoing stress or anxiety, it may ultimately break down. Other problems may develop. A racing heart requires a lot of oxygen to sup-ply the energy for heart muscle cells. This precious fuel is always needed elsewhere, and symptoms may develop in the gastrointestinal or hormonal systems. Human internal energy conservation also involves the use of glucose, your bodys primary energy currency. Glucose is used by every cell in the body as an energy resource to power normal physiological processes. For example, your brain is the number one consumer of glucose. In a fasting adult model, up to 80 percent of the glu-cose manufactured from stored com-plex carbohydrates is used for brain metabolism. If your glucose storage and supply mechanisms are not optimized, many systems, including your mental func-tioning, will suffer significant drop-offs. Importantly, regular vigorous physical exercise, particularly strength-training, ensures your bodys optimal use of energy resources. Strength-training causes your body to build lean muscle mass, which burns energy even when youre resting. One long-term result is that both your blood glu-cose levels and your blood insulin levels tend to flatten out. The result is a body that knows how to optimally burn glucose for energy, rather than a body that is out of synch and storing glucose as fat. The glucose you consume as complex carbohydrates gets used efficiently, and your body works much more effectively. You dont need to lift heavy weights to get these long-term health-promoting benefits. Lifting weights that are heavy enough to pro-vide a modest challenge is all thats needed. The simple rule of thumb is this „ if you can easily do three sets of eight repetitions with the weight youre using, its too light. Increase the weight slightly so that attempting to do three sets of eight repetitions is a little challenging. That will be the right weight for you for that particular exercise. Energy conservation is not only needed in the world today. The prac-tice of energy conservation is also key for our internal health and well-being. Regular vigorous exercise helps us conserve the energy we need to live. Q Dr. Michael PapaCHIROPRACTOR(561) 744-7373www.papachiro.com

FLORIDA WEEKLY MARCH 2012 C3 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPermanent weight results can start at any time of year D o you weigh too much, get tired too easily, live a sed-entary lifestyle or deal with high blood pressure, high cholesterol or struggle with anxiety? Living a life on the go, while eating fast food and microwave dinners, we sac-rifice our health daily. Instead of eating a diet of pure, wholesome fresh foods, many of us eat a diet of packaged, processed and refined foods. According to the Cen-ters for Dis-ease Con-trol and Prevention, obesity in adults has increased by 60 percent in the past 20 years and obesity in chil-dren has tripled in the past 30 years. A staggering 33 percent of American adults are obese and obesity-related deaths have climbed to more than 300,000 a year, second only to tobacco-related deaths. When regaining your health is your top priority, youre ready to make some changes. Before you begin a weightloss program, decide if you are ready to make the lifestyle changes needed to lose weight. Losing weight and maintaining weight loss can be hard. Although the formula for weight loss (burning more calories than you consume) is not complicated, it is often hard to achieve and main-tain. It may be hard to find the motivation if you have lost and regained weight several times. Think about successes that you have had in the past and how you were able to achieve them. Change your eating habitsEating fewer calories while increasing activity is the best way to lose weight. For most adults, a low-calorie diet of 1,200 to 1,500 calories a day for women and 1,500 to 1,800 calories a day for men is recommended for weight loss. Cut fat from your diet, especially by substituting healthy monounsaturated fat in place of saturated fat. Use lean meats and meat alternatives to limit saturated fat. Avoid processed foods, which deplete the natural food source of its nutritional value and contribute to empty calories. Choose whole foods and grains or foods that are minimally processed and closest to the original food as possible.Increase activityPhysical activity helps you burn more calories. One of the best ways to increase your activity is by walking. Most people can do this activity safely and routinely alone or with family members, friends, coworkers or pets. And it is easy to work into a daily schedule. Check progress with your doctorSome people stop losing weight around this time, because their bodies adjust to fewer calories, and their motivation starts to slip. At this point, your doctor may want you to increase your activity and make further changes in your diet. Your goals may switch from losing more weight to keeping the weight off. Staying active is very important for maintaining weight loss. If you have lost weight but gained it back, do not be discouraged. It is common to try several times before weight comes off and stays off. Talk to your doctor about starting again. It may be helpful to work with others who are trying to lose weight in a structured program. Through your continued efforts, you will reap great rewards. If you are ready to look better, feel better and be healthier, weight loss can be the first step toward a fuller and healthier lifestyle. Are you ready for change? Surprisingly, weight loss can be the first step to many positive life changes „ both physically and emotionally.

We read it in magazine articles. We get it from every physician, every nurse and nutritionist. The recipe for good health: Eat right, exer-cise and have regular check-ups.Ž We hear the message so often its easy to tune it out. We yield to the temptation of fried over broiled, the couch over the gym, and clearly there are a thousand reasons to postpone the checkups. So, let me tell you something that may get through loud and clear. Ill talk about my own area of medicine. We know that after the age of 40, a woman should have an annual mammogram and clinical breast exam. At the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at Jupiter Medical Cen-ter, theres a breast cancer we see quite often. Its called Ductal Carcinoma in Situ, or DCIS. When caught in the early stages, this pre-invasive cancer has a 95 percent to 100 percent cure rate. Can there be any more compelling evidence of the importance of regu-lar checkups? Or the importance of mammograms and breast exams? Left untreated, DCIS can lead to far more serious, and potentially fatal, breast can-cers. But with treatment, there is virtu-ally a 100 percent cure rate. As the medical director of the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center and a board certified diagnostic radiologist, its my job to find any anomaly, or suspi-cious area in breast tissue, which might require further investigation. In our breast center, we analyze more than 5,000 digital mammograms a year. Analysis of a mammogram is a highly complex and sensitive task. A tissue abnormality can be so subtle that some-one without in-depth experience could miss it. Sometimes it seems as subtle and evasive as finding a needle in a hay-stack „ which is why we value not only education and experience, but also total commitment and dedication. A screening mammogram is all most women need, and it only takes about 15 minutes. If additional evaluation is needed, our diagnostic phase can be a three-tiered process. The diagnostic mammogram allows us remarkable flex-ibility. For example, we can zoom in for a closer view of a suspicious area. An abnormality might well be caused by an overlapping shadow, or it could be a true distortion. If we suspect the need for further investigation, usu-ally the next level would be to do an ultrasound. This is a sophisticated imaging approach that uses high fre-quency sound waves to pro-duce precise images. If the patient is at an increased risk for breast cancer, we may do an MRI. This is a highly sensitive test that will detect 99-plus percent of breast can-cers. But with MRIs, it is also necessary to proceed with caution, as the acute sensitivity of the technology can also create false positives. Again, my point is that the diagnostic process has variables and requires experienced, sophisticated and highly trained physi-cians and technicians. We have that superior quality of professionals at the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center. We are a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence as designated by the American College of Radiology, and offer a real one-stop shopŽ approach to womens breast health. We have every modality, and maintain a close relation-ship with breast surgeons. We work closely with both oncologists and radia-tion oncologists. We stay in contact with our patients, from diagnosis all the way through treatment. Its important to first thoroughly familiarize ourselves with our patients histo-ries. Our Breast Cancer Risk Assessment program offers a genetic counselor who explores our patients family history to perform a risk assessment. Indicators of risk might include any relatives who were under the age of 50 when they were diagnosed with breast cancer, whether the patient has more than two relatives with breast cancer, and whether a previous biopsy showed atypical cells. There are also other genetic and environmental issues that might point toward a vulnerability to breast cancer. This risk assessment pro-gram is so important because it helps us map out strategies for testing, for diag-nosis and for treatment. There is much we can do: early detection leads to a cure. But our success is far more probable when the patient does her part: she picks up the phone and makes an appointment for a checkup.

The children dive into their vegetables and beg for seconds. Then, after cleaning their plates, they eagerly run outside for some daily exercise. Unfortunately, in the real world, establishing nutritious eating habits and regular fitness can seem like the impossible dream. Yes, there are challenges. However, with a little pre-planning, creativity and a healthy dose of perseverance you can make healthy habits a part of your fam-ilys lifestyle. One of the best ways to achieve this is by setting a good example. Parents can talk all they want. Kids follow what we do. Without saying a word, you can exert a good deal of influence over your childrens attitude toward health and fitness. Here are some other practical tips for making healthy habits a reality in your world: Q Get rid of the junk. If your pantry is full of soda, chips and candy, your kids wont be interested in the alternatives. They will resist the changes at first. How-ever, if the only options are healthy ones, hunger will eventually win out and theyll get with the program. Q Dont save the vegetables for dinnertime. If you provide healthy foods throughout the day, youll eliminate the need for heaping helpings of spinach or corn at dinner. This can go a long way toward diffusing power struggles at mealtimes because theres less pressure to get all their fruit/vegetable servings at meal-times. Q Plan active outings. By taking walks after dinner, youll be bonding as well as getting fit. Instead of shopping or going out to eat, go bike riding or take a long walk on the beach. Even if your kids arent athletic, theyll enjoy these types of exercise „ and theyll just think theyre having fun!Q Incorporate healthy foods into foods they already enjoy. Add apples, zucchini or berries to muffins. Make a batch of chili that includes beans and carrots. Add shredded carrots and fresh or frozen corn to your cornbread. Use a bread maker to bake vegetable and fruit breads that kids will love. Q Balance technology with activity. If your kids have been on the Wii for an hour, then send them outside to run around for a while. Try to encourage bal-ance in their activities without being rigid. Q Give their favorite foods a makeover. If your kids adore greasy French fries, substitute sweet potato fries. Sim-ply brush them with a little olive oil and bake them in the oven. Instead of hamburgers, serve turkey burgers on multi-grain buns. Fruit smoothies are a wonderfully healthy alternative to ice cream or milkshakes. Q Reserve treats for weekends. Even treats can be relatively healthy. For example, you can make a choco-late pudding parfait with skim milk and real whipped cream. Add some fruit and whole grain graham cracker crumbs and you have a tasty dessert, but with a healthy twist. The earlier you start incorporating healthy habits, the better; however, if you have gotten a late start, do not despair. It will take some time, but you will see changes if you stick with it. Youll be giving your children a gift that will reap dividends long after theyre grown and gone. Now wouldnt that be perfect? Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY

C6 healthy living MARCH 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe word orthopedicsŽ comes from the Greek: ortho,Ž meaning correct or straight, and pedicsŽ from the root pais,Ž meaning children; for many cen-turies, orthopedists were doctors who treated crippled children. The world of orthopedics has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, but if patients arent necessarily leaping and bounding post-surgery, they definitely are walking and dancing and golfing much sooner, and with less pain, than ever before. Arthroscopic surgery „ minimally invasive procedures that utilize scopes inserted through small incisions „ was done as early as 1920s, but technology has grown ever more sophisticated over the decades. Tiny cameras and surgeon-controlled robotic arms allow doctors to reach, treat and replace damaged knees and hips and shoulders, permit-ting patients to return to their normal activities. Still, Dr. Leighton is careful not to downplay the impact of hospitalization on a patient. The only easy surgery is the one done on somebody else,Ž he says. Nobody likes to think of his or her sur-gery as routine.Ž Even the notion of routineŽ is in constant flux, with new techniques surfac-ing all the time. Whats latest and greatest and best,Ž Dr. Leighton says is MAKOplasty, a partial-knee-replacement procedure that allows surgeons to restore only the damaged portion of a knee, allow-ing for quicker recovery time. During the surgery, a Tactile Guidance System (TGS) creates a three-dimensional view of the bone surface, and a doctor-con-trolled robotic arm allows the surgeon to manipulate cutting tools inside the knee. Dr. Leighton has done about 60 such procedures to date. Some physicians, he says, release patients the day of the surgery, but he prefers them to remain in the hospital for two to three days. Thankfully,Ž he says, the health system still pays for three days.Ž The sharing and comparing of information and experience, a valuable tool in a rapidly changing medical universe, is available to orthopedists via Ortho-Mind, a global online network that enables them to collaborate privately, exchanging data and discussing trends. The site allows access only to its own employees and validated orthopedic surgeons. Like much in its field, the site is relatively new; it was founded in 2008. The dramatic uptick in orthopedic developments has an illustration in Dr. Leightons own life. He was 12 when his father „ changing a tire on his Ford Pinto on New Yorks Grand Central Parkway „ was hit by another car. The impact fractured his dads femur, the thighbone. Today, wed be washing out the fracture and stabilizing it with a rod and hed have been out of the hospital quickly,Ž Dr. Leighton says. Back then, they hung him up in traction for six weeks and then they rodded the femur.Ž The timing of that event, when the young Michael Leighton was already interested in medicine, was, he says now, a fairly significant thingŽ that led him to pursue a career in orthopedics. You see a problem, fix a problem, see the results immediately,Ž he says. Not every problem can be fixed, of course. One ongoing conundrum: relieving the pain, swelling and stiffness caused by arthritis, and restoring the joint function it robs. Exercise; physical therapy; anti-inflammatory medication and gels; cortisone injections; or the use of hyaluronic acid, which acts as a joint lubricant, all can provide temporary relief, but arthritis is generally a chronic disease and cure is rarely possible. Glossy posters on the walls of the Orthopaedic Institute illustrate some of the problems patients bring there „ carpal tunnel syndrome and scoliosis, low back pain and osteoarthritis, broken bones and torn rotator cuff and inflam-mation of the knee, hip, shoulder „ and some of the procedures used to treat them. For some severe cases of arthritis, joint replacement is an answer, albeit one that has, at times, aroused con-troversy. Although hip replacement is one of the most commonly performed orthopedic procedures (with a 90 per-cent rate of pain relief and improved mobility), research published in the medical journal Lancet found unequiv-ocal evidenceŽ of high-failure rates for metal-on-metal hip implants and noted that experts in the field recommended they be banned. The metal-on-metal bearings create wear particles that are proven more toxic to tissue and, over time, to the individual,Ž says Dr., voicing a preference for ceramic-on-ceramic bearings, which he says cause less wear and no particle debris. Sometimes they squeak,Ž he acknowledges. This is not good. Patients dont like walking into a quiet room, squeaking.Ž Newer in the field, he says, is the use of ceramic bearings on polyethylene. Ceramic-on-plastic doesnt squeak,Ž he says. This is probably where state-of-the-art isŽ for hip replacements. Another common problem: a meniscus tear, a tear in one of the two rubbery discs that cushion the knee, frequently caused, the doctor says, by dancing, twisting, squatting down to line up a putt.Ž Rest and physical therapy can heal a small tear; a more serious one can be repaired with out-patient arthroscopic surgery that takes about 20 minutes. The patient, Dr. Leighton says, can be up in two to three days, back on the golf course in two to three weeks.Ž The desire, the need, to return to normalcy „ and to do so quickly „ is one he hears often. We have a very unique population in South Florida,Ž Dr. Leighton says, an older, but more active, population. Were dealing with 80-year-olds who want to know when they can go back to Pilates class, 85-year-olds who want to return to playing golf. Ive got an 82-year-old down at Bear Lakes, and we replaced both knees simultaneously, and hes doing great. Hes back to playing, slowly ... but thats his game, slow.Ž Multiply that scenario by hundreds more, and one can envision the get-me-back-to-my-former-self demand. Everybodys exercising, pushing,Ž he says. People are continuing to DO, and were here to help them.Ž Q ORTHOPEDICFrom page C1“You see a problem, x a problem, see the results immediately.” – Dr. Michael Leighton
