A ONE PERCENTER WONDERLANDBY TIM NORRIStnorris@” URIOSER AND CURIOSER.Idling at the stoplight on the West Palm end of the Royal Park Bridge, we see a white van gunning toward The Island. The van has many siblings, tattooed with plumbing fixtures and landscap-ing tools and wintry air-conditioners. This one, though, shows a gold pocket watch, and its in a hurry. Maybe its occupant is selling or fixing timepieces, Rolex, Tourneau, great-grandpas railroad vest-pocket Waltham.

WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART ATTACK. 561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS 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 APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYThe case for American women roger Lets start with what we know: There is no such thing as equality. You and I, for example, are never going to be equal. Theres a good chance that I am both uglier and more cheerful than you are, and you are both smarter and more practical than I am, although usually not at the same time (it depends on the challenges of the moment). Theres a 49 percent chance that I walk around with a third leg and a Y chromo-some affecting my judgment, and you dont. Theres a 98 percent chance that I am older than everybody under 60, and an 8 percent chance that I am wiser than 75 percent of them. Confusing, I know. So what are we going to do about these brain-freezing inequalities, in a nation where all men are created equal?Ž As your personal saddle burr and weekly columnist, I recommend this: We do what we always do at any Saturday night dance. We grin rakishly. We mutter, Oh, what the hell,Ž and shrug stoically „ you keep your toes away from my big feet on the dance floor to avoid injury and possible hospitalization „ and we proceed to Enjoy with a capital E (but not for Equality). So were not equal, big deal. I couldnt care less. Lets dance. But not being equal „ and we are not „ is not the same thing as not having equal rights and opportunities. And we still do not. Suddenly, the deal gets a little bigger. And I do care. For six decades now, the same damn question has plagued my life: Whos the second-class citizen, and why? Who isnt sitting at my American table and getting results „ the same results I get „ when they say, Please pass the meat and potatoes? Please pass the peas and corn and the apple pie?Ž Back in the Paleolithic when I was very young, it was the Coloreds (and various others, of course). They had no seat at the table, so I got the meat and potatoes and they finally got Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka (1954), outlawing schools separated by race. Then it was the Negroes (among others, including women). I got the peas and corn and they got the 1964 Civil Rights Act (99 years after the Civil War ended), outlawing discrimination in housing, in the workplace and everywhere else. Free at last? Can I sit down now and have some pie? Sorry, pal, not quite so fast. Not if youre black or a woman or both. So I got the apple pie and they got no Equal Rights Amendment (in the case of women). But somebody passed them Roe v. Wade and affirmative action, and they all got that „ a dessert course, if you will, that was more or less the equivalent of half-a-piece of the All American pie. Affirmative Action gave some individuals a leg up, and it ignored equal rights except as a distant goal, which we still havent reached. It used inequality to pro-mote equality in the eyes of the law. But using the ends to justify the means is risky business. The right course, the better course, is this: Treat every single citizen as if he or she were you or me. Its the course of action each business owner, each voter, each military com-mander, each public servant or private entrepreneur or administrator or teacher must take beginning this week: Set an equal place at the table. Do it on the job. If youre a boss and you employ women who arent being paid as much as the men, change that now. You call yourself an American, dont you? Do it at home. Do it during the day and through the night, then get up and do it again. Im reminded of all this as women unite this week in cities and towns across the country to protest „ on Saturday, April 28 „ their continued treatment as less-than-equal citizens in American society. This isnt a partisan issue. It isnt a contest between liberals and conserva-tives, or left and right, or Democrats and Republicans, although its frequently cast that way. It isnt even a contest between men and women „ but thats arguable, with good reasons on both sides. Instead, I see it as a contest between damned Yankees „ between the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Or put another way, its a contest between what we do as Americans and what we should do as Americans. In the case of women, never have the oppressed been so comfortable. They can vote „and some remain alive who were born when they couldnt, before 1920. They can work wherever they can qualify to do a job, like African Ameri-cans can now. And in spite of the continuing efforts of some self-righteous moralists who wish to regulate by law what women do, they can choose whether or not to get preg-nant, and whether or not to have babies. But their comfort and freedom (relative to the past) in no way diminishes the injustice that continues to be done to women in American society. For example, women working today are paid about 80 percent as much as men. Theres no American excuse for that.That said, its also true that well-educated, urban working women do as well or better than their male counterparts. Those statistics represent realities that are inarguable „ and it doesnt matter whether youre a Republican, a Democrat, a member of the Green Party, a Christian, a Jew or a Muslim. What is also inarguable is that such a condition is wrong, by American standard principles. All men are created equal, including women and child-men, or children. The more passionately we embrace that notion, the more thoroughly we become Americans. Q

A4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONFast times at the GSA amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Mitt Romney says he likes to fire people. If elected, can the General Ser-vices Administration be his first target? A few (but not enough) heads have already rolled at the agency that threw itself an infamous Las Vegas confer-ence that could have been planned by former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski before he went to jail. The GSA couldnt outdo Kozlowski, who threw his wife a birthday party on an Italian island with an ice sculpture of Michelangelos DavidŽ that urinated vodka and billed his company for half the cost, but it undertook its conference planning with same sense of frugality and good taste. Charged with supporting federal operations, the GSA turns out to be a cynical wastrel. Prior to the conference, word came down from on high that it should be over the topŽ „ in other words, in the spirit of an over-the-top era of stimulus, when spending more is always assumed to be better. The GSA spent $6,325 on commemorative coins to reward its employees, fittingly enough, for their work on Recovery Act projects. Its a wonder that Keynesians arent defending the $820,000 confer-ence as a jobs creator. The event was the biennial Western Regions Conference of the Public Buildings Service of the GSA, and if that doesnt sound like a good time, youve never partied with the GSA. A great deal of thought was put into how to sidestep and exploit every rule in the interest of gouging the government. According to an inspector-general report, the GSA undertook two scout-ing trips,Ž five off-site planning meet-ings and a dry runŽ for the conference. The Osama bin Laden raid might not have been so elaborately planned. All told, travel and catering costs for plan-ning alone ran $136,000. Then, on to the main event: more food. For the Petit Beef Wellington and Mini Monte Cristo Sandwiches at the networking reception,Ž for the Bour-sin Scalloped Potato with Barolo Wine Braised Short Ribs at the party prior the closing dinner, for all the breakfast buf-fets and in-room parties, the GSA paid $146,000. Since government rules allow for free food at award ceremonies, the GSA was sure to give out awards liber-ally, including at a $2,700 invitation-only concluding party in a loft suite. The GSA paid $75,000 for a teambuilding exercise and $58,000 for audio-visual services (to play embarrassingly juvenile music videos starring GSA employees). To give it all a patina of high-mindedness, employees built 24 bikes to give to the local Boys and Girls Club. Except the GSA had to finesse its own red tape to do it. Conference organizer Jeffrey Neely boasted at the end of the confab about the unforgettableŽ event. Even as the inspector general closed in on his prof-ligacy, he got a $9,000 bonus from his GSA superiors. He was last seen taking the Fifth at a congressional hearing. The GSA scandal is yet another reminder of the waste and laxity inevi-table in organizations where its diffi-cult to fire anyone and all the pennies are from heaven. The new rule should be that all federal off-site conferences must be held at the Motel 6 in Omaha, Neb. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Obama’s policies: The real scandal in CartagenaPresident Barack Obamas reelection campaign launched its first Spanish-language ads this week, just after returning from the Summit of the Americas. He spent three days in Colombia, longer than any president in U.S. history. The trip was marred, how-ever, by a prostitution scandal involving the U.S. military and Secret Service. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, We let the boss down, because nobodys talking about what went on in Colombia other than this incident.Ž Dempsey is right. It also served as a metaphor for the U.S governments ongoing treatment of Latin America. The scandal reportedly involves 11 members of the U.S. Secret Service and five members of the U.S. Army Special Forces, who allegedly met prostitutes at one or more bars in Cartagena and took up to 20 of the women, some of whom may have been minors, back to their hotel. This all deserves thorough investigation, but so do the policy posi-tions that Obama promoted while in Cartagena. First, the war on drugs. Obama stated at the summit, I, personally, and my administrations position is that legal-ization is not the answer.Ž Ethan Nadel-mann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, told me that, despite Obamas predictable line, this summit showed the transformation of the regional and global dialogue around drug policy. ... This is the first youve had a president saying that were will-ing to look at the possibility that U.S. drug policies are doing more harm than good in some parts of the world.Ž He credits the growing consensus across the political spectrum in Latin America, from key former presidents like Vicente Fox of Mexico, who supports legaliza-tion of drugs, to current leaders like Mexicos Felipe Calderon, who cited the rapacious demand for drugs in the U.S. as the core of the problem. Nadelmann went on: You have the funny situation of Evo Morales, the leftist leader of Bolivia, former head of the coca growers union, lecturing the United States about „ essentially, sounding like Milton Friedman „ that How can you expect us to reduce the supply when there is a demand? So theres the beginning of a change here. I dont think its going to be possible to put this genie back in the bottle.Ž Then there is trade. Obama and Colombian President Juan Manuel San-tos also announced that the U.S.-Colom-bian Free Trade Agreement would take full force May 15. Colombian and U.S. labor leaders decried the m ove, since Colombia is the worst country on Earth for trade unionists. Labor organizers are regularly murdered in Colombia, with at least 34 killed in the past year and a half. When Obama was first running for president, he promised to oppose the Colombia FTA, because the violence against unions in Colombia would make a mockery of the very labor protections that we have insisted be included in these kinds of agreements.Ž That year, 54 Colombian trade unionists were killed. AFL-CIO President Rich-ard Trumka said the announcement is deeply disappointing and troubling.Ž Republicans, on the other hand, are offering grudging praise to Obama for pushing the FTA. On Cuba, Obama took the globally unpopular position of defending the U.S. embargo. Even at home, polls show that a strong majority of the American people and businesses support an end to the embargo. The U.S. also suc-ceeded, once again, in banning Cuba from the summit, prompting Ecuador-ian President Rafael Correa to boycott the meeting this year. Responding to overall U.S. intransigence, other Western Hemisphere countries are organizing themselves. Greg Grandin, professor of Latin Ameri-can history at New York University, told me: Latin Americans themselves are creating these bodies that are exclud-ing the United States, that are deepen-ing integration, political and economic integration. This seems to be a venue in which they come together in order to criticize Washington, quite effectively.Ž Grandin compared Obamas Latin America policies to those of his prede-cessors: The two main pillars of U.S. foreign policy „ increasing neoliberal-ism and increasing militarism around drugs „ continue. They feed off of each other and have created a crisis in that corridor, running from Colombia through Central America to Mexico. Thats been a complete disaster, and theres no change.Ž It will take more than a prostitution scandal to cover that up.

All dogs welcome! Drive on over to Yappy Hour Friday May 4 th 6pm9pm for our end of season "Clearance Sale" Pucci & CatanaLuxury Pet Boutique BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickWarm weather came early this year to much of the country, and that means lakes and rivers „ and even swimming pools „ are already being enjoyed by dogs who love to swim. But every spring, as my field-bred retrievers (who happily swim year-round) greet new dogs at the rivers edge, I see dogs at risk of drowning. Most times, some caution on the part of their owners would prevent any prob-lems. The keys to water safety for dogs: prevention, preparedness and awareness.PreventionNo dog should be given unsupervised access to a backyard pool or a neighbor-hood pond or creek. Swimming pools are best fenced-off for safety. And if thats not possible, they should be equipped with alarms that sound when the surface of the water is broken by a child or pet fall-ing in. Escape ramps are a great idea, but its better to prevent pets from getting in unsupervised in the first place. Prevention also includes teaching your pet what to do when hes in the pool. Dogs dont understand the idea that the steps are on one side only, and they may tire and drown trying to crawl out the other side. If your pet likes to swim, work with him in the pool to help him learn where the steps are, so he can get out easily. Tip: Put contrasting paint or tape on the fence behind the steps to give your dog a visual clue he can count on. Finally, obedience training is extremely important. Your dog should come when called, even while swimming, so you can call him back before he heads into deeper water or stronger currents. Emergency shortcut: Always carry extra retrieving toys. A dog whos heading out into a dan-gerous area after a ball or stick can often be lured back to shore with a second item thrown closer in. Its no substitute for training, but it could save your dogs life.PreparednessBefore letting your dog swim in any natural surroundings, survey the area for safety. Rivers and oceans can change fre-quently, and an area that was safe for swim-ming one visit can be treacherous the next. Consider currents, tides, underwater haz-ards and even the condition of the water. In the late summer, algae scum on the top of standing water can be toxic, producing substances that can kill a pet who swallows the tainted water. When in doubt, no swim-ming. Better safe than sorry. One of the best things you can do is to take courses in first aid and CPR for your pets. Many local Red Cross chapters offer these classes, and some veterinarians may also teach them in your community. A dog whos pulled out near death from drown-ing may be saved by your prompt actions „ if you know what to do. If your dog isnt much of a swimmer, or is older or debilitated, get him a person-al flotation device. These are especially great for family boating trips because most have sturdy handles for rescue if a pet goes overboard. Awareness Be aware of your dogs condition as he plays. Remember that even swimming dogs can get hot, so bring fresh water and offer it constantly. When your dog is tiring, be sure to call it a day. A tired dog is a good dog, but an exhausted dog is in danger of drowning. Be particularly careful of young and old dogs. Both can get themselves into more trouble than a healthy adult dog with lots of swimming experience. Young dogs can panic in the water, and old dogs may not realize they arent as strong as they used to be. Keep them close to shore, and keep swimming sessions short. Swimming is great exercise and great fun for all, and with these few simple precautions you can keep the cool times coming, with safety in mind. Q Pets of the Week PET TALESSafer swimmingDon’t assume dogs know the rules for water safety>> Pickles is a 1-year-old neutered Boxer mix. He would do best in a home with no children.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 A7You snooze, you loseIn April, a research ship will begin surveying the Atlantic Ocean floor off of Nova Scotia as the first step to building, by 2013, a $300 million private fiber-optic line connecting New York and London financial markets so as to speed up cur-rent transmission times „ by about five milliseconds. Those five milliseconds, though (according to an April report in Bloomberg Business Week), will enable the small group of firms that are under-writing the project (and who will have exclusive use of it) to earn millions of dol-lars per transaction by having their trade sales arrive five milliseconds before their competitors sales would have arrived. Q Cultural diversityQ Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, the most celebrated plastic surgeon in the country, appar-ently earned enough money from well-off clients that he can now give back,Ž by funding and inspiring more than 200 clinics to provide low-income women with enhancement procedures (face lifts, tummy tucks, butt lifts) at a reduced, and sometimes no, charge. A local anthro-pology professor told ABC News, for a March dispatch, that (i)n Brazil, plastic surgery is now seen as something of the normŽ (or, as the reporter put it, (B)eauty is (considered) a right, and the poor deserve to be ravishing, tooŽ). Q In a March interview on Bolivian television, Judge Gualberto Cusi, who was recently elected to Bolivias Consti-tutional Tribunal from the indigenous Aymara community, acknowledged that occasionally, when deciding tough cases, he relied on the Aymaran tradition of readingŽ coca leaves. In moments when decisions must be taken, we turn to coca to guide us and show us the way.Ž Q In February, the Life-End Clinic in the Netherlands announced that six mobile euthanasia teams were placed in service countrywide to make assisted-suicide house calls „ provided the client qualified under the nations strict laws. (Euthanasia, legal in the Netherlands since 2002, is available to people who suffer unbearable, interminableŽ pain and for which at least two doctors cer-tify there is no cure.Ž Panels of doctors, lawyers and ethicists rule on the applica-tions.) Q Latest religious messagesQ Two lawsuits filed in Los Angeles recently against the founding family of the religious Trinity Broadcasting Net-work allege that televangelists Paul and Jan Crouch have spent well over $50 mil-lion of worshippers donations on per-sonalŽ expenses, including 13 mansions,Ž his-and-hers private jets, and a $100,000 mobile home for Mrs. Crouchs dogs. The jets are necessary, the Crouches lawyer told the Los Angeles Times, because the Crouches receive more death threats than even the president of the United States. Allegedly, the Crouches keep millions of dollars in cash on hand, but according to their lawyer, that is merely out of obedience to the biblical principle of ow(ing) no man anything.Ž Q High-ranking Vatican administrator Cardinal Domenico Calcagno, 68, fired back at critics in April after an Italian website reported his extensive collection of guns and love of shooting. He told reporters that he owns only 13 weapons and that, above all,Ž he enjoys repair-ingŽ them rather than shooting them (although, he admitted, I used to go to shooting rangesŽ). Q Fine points of Florida lawQ In April, the Tampa Police Department issued preliminary security guide-lines to control areas around Augusts Republican National Convention in the city. Although the Secret Service will control the actual convention arena, Tampa Police are establishing a zone around the arena in which weapons will be confiscated (including sticks, rocks, bottles and slingshots). Police would like to have banned firearms, too, but state law prevents cities from restricting the rights of licensed gun-carriers. Q South Florida station WPLG-TV reported in March that vendors were openly selling, for about $30, verba-tim drivers license test questions and answers, on the street in front of DMV offices. However, when told about it, a DMV official shrugged, pointing out that test-takers still had to memorize them to pass the closed-book exam. Q Least-competent criminalsQ In the early hours of Jan. 31, police in Gaston, N.C., were alerted to five burglaries in a two-block area that left shattered glass, broken doors and other damage, but no missing property. There was also a blood trail leading from one store, likely from a break-in boo-boo. N In March, Englands Canterbury Crown Court heard the evidence against a gang of five who in August and September 2010 attempted to break into seven ATMs, using fancy power tools, but came away empty-handed each time. Brick walls were smashed around three machines, and twice explosives were used, resulting in fires. In each case, alarms were triggered, sending the men away prematurely, including once from an ATM that contained the equivalent of $223,000. Q No spectators allowedFor the first time in years, there was no Easter bunny at Central City Park in Macon, Ga., this year because the coun-ty commissioner who runs the sponsor-ing organization said he was tired of violent parents hogging the Easter egg hunt by helpingŽ their kids. (Two years ago, Olney High School in Philadelphia barred players parents from its boys junior varsity basketball games unless they registered and vowed to obey a code of conduct. In February 2012, the president of the Egyptian Football Association similarly announced that the season would continue but without spectators, because of the probability of violence. Of course, Egypt, unlike Macon, Ga., and Olney High School, has just been through a bloody civil war.) Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE


A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYBeach, island of dreams, consider this a tour. That might seem commonplace, here, where Jim Ponce has for so long led his unparalleled tours through The Break-ers. We can also find printed guides, coffee table books and magazines and innumerable web sites festooned in the glossy images of wealth and attain-ment.

Maybe, by the end, we will find something of the answer, not just to the ways a service van rabbit-hops among the wealthy but to the whole Fuss and Bother of living. Or maybe we will just kill a few hours with an entertaining change of scene. Please turn off your squawk boxes and put away your label-makers. On this tour we will attempt to see what were looking at, and we will leave snap-judgments to the circus of popular politics. Stay close, gliding along drives between lofty and manicured hedges and Italianate and Georgian and Medi-terranean facades, between the Intra-coastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, between obligation and fantasy. Ah, the tropical breezes. Ah, the magi-cal words, Palm Beach, from which arise the heady vapors of Caribbean dreams, luxurious and licentious and salubrious. Why befoul them with a political buzz-phrase, the One Percent? Well, because every tour guides hat needs its label, even if it seems numerical, like, say, that card on the Mad Hatters top hat, 10-over-6. The percentage approach seems, in a curious way, more just. In this enter-prise, it doesnt matter a whit whether you can hum the three motives of J.S. Bachs Fugue in C-Sharp Minor or whether you ask for a snifter of Grand MARE-iner instead of Grahn Marih-nyay. This One Percent business is strictly about income and assets. Here is the one-percent rub: if you are literal, a bean-counter, a pollster, an accountant, the One Percent starts at an income of a mere $343,927 per year. It DOES matter whether you have assets of $1 million „ heavens, whole hordes of hoi polloi have that! „ or $1 million is your annual income. And the wealthy, we know, get a whole lot more of their proceeds from divi-dends and interest than from brow-sweat. What matters more on this tour, though, is what they are doing with it. Thats what were trying to show. We will start on foot through a colonnade of palms, along Royal Poinci-ana. Please, dont lollygag! Over here, now, turn right on South County Road, past hedgerows, now, look!rrrrrThis is a place we KNOW we will find top-tier types: The Breakers.Imagine, if you will, a view of this from the west before Henry Flagler arrived in 1896 to build the Palm Beach Inn; in fact, before the Providentia foundered on its way from Cuba to Spain in 1889 and dumped 20,000 coco-nuts to wash ashore and take root as palm trees. Look now: the ornamental towers and massive, sun-washed facade of the 1925 edifice built on the ashes of two prior hotels, modeled on the Villa Medici in Rome. Go ahead, walk in! Past the fair-ways and ponds and greens of the 16th and 15th holes, along flowering boulevards, here we are, skirting a wonderfully groomed croquet ground. Not a flamingo in sight. Not a player, either. Just to stand, where such a plot of land can be set aside for the imme-morial leisure, barely a min utes pelican glide from Brazilian Avenue, where another parcel of grassy ground, an empty lot, is offered on the market at $9.8 million...well, that gives one a plea-surable shiver. Step under the Breakers port cochere, through decorative doors that sweep automatically apart. In these grand halls, do you feel small, all at once? Marble columns, vaulted ceil-ings with hanging chandeliers, fringed and tasseled draperies, finely woven carpets, padded couches and armchairs outfitted in gold ... How is this different from more modest lodgings, from the Marriotts and Holidays Inns and Comfort Suites of the world? These days, a much larger percentage of us can be guests in pleas-ant, well-decorated places with free shampoo and room service. Maybe thats born of a general rise in expecta-tions, a cultural trickle-down, a benefit of envy. We might expect one-per-centers from out-of-town to flock here, pay-ing in-season room rates from $539 to $1,320 and suites up to $5,900 and swan-diving into a puff-pillow of ser-vices and activities. Even in leisure, busy and accomplished people want the most and best options. At 9, bicycle tour of Palm Beach; at 10:30, guided reef snorkel; at 11, sand art; at 1, science lab; at 2;30, super shell search crafts; at 3, glitter tattoos; at 7, bonfire the beach. Oh, and croquet clicks off at 9:30, every Sunday. One-percenters also want the option to linger where they like. Nobody has to schedule the shops, bar, restau-rants, beach. Arent more options what wealth provides best? Still, this IS a hotel, a way-station. To see the one percent in their native hab-itat, how about a stroll down monetary lane? Happy to say, well find one just a few blocks away. Follow me! rrrrrOn Worth Avenue, as The Season gives way to summer, the main activi-ties appear to be walking, shopping, dining and talk1%From page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe Breakers, above, is modeled after Villa Medici in Rome.The shops on Worth Avenue — well, you won’t find them in Ypsilanti or Dubuque.


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 A9 4755 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens (561) 799-05559186 Glades Road, Boca Lyons Plaza (561) 477-4774 Lic. #HS8984 ing. There must, given this jabberwocky, be a certain amount of listening. Pay no attention to those tourists in T-shirts, to those swag-gerers in jeans! Start with the merchandise, tastefully displayed in the shop windows. Start, in fact, with the shops themselves: Fer-ragamo, Cartier, Saks Fifth Avenue, Van Cleef & Arpels, a jewelry shop that reads London, New York, Palm Beach, Chicago, Las Vegas, Bal Harbor, Monte Carlo, Moscow, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai and Kuwait.Ž You wont find this line-up in Ypsilanti or Dubuque. You wont find the burial site of somebodys pet monkey, either, as you will right here, in this commodious courtyard, Via Mizner, where Addison Mizner laid to rest his beloved spider monkey, Johnnie Brown. Pets, as they should be, are family, here. We might also, given to peoplewatching, take note of what Worth Avenue Magazine calls the Palm Beach look.Ž You can see it in a couple right here, passing the Brooks Broth-ers shop, man in cream-colored slacks, pink shirt and Navy blue blazer, woman in flowered jersey wrap dress and wide-brimmed hat. The clothes are comfortable, dignified, unpretentious. The hair very well tended. The skin half-glowing. A skeptical outsider might expect snubbery, and posing. Dont we all like to pretend a little? Is that tall young woman who looks like a model ... a model? Is that older man in the rai-ment of the Ivy League really a gradu-ate of Andover and Princeton and Wall Street? Look carefully at these faces, at the carriage and movement of the fig-ures. Do you see it? Confidence. Self-belief. This might verge on arrogance, but another Latin phrase springs to mind: ipsi quam vidi-ri „ to BE, rather than to SEEM. This confidence might be the deeper kind, born of experience, achievement, high standards. Also of being admired and envied, of growing up with great expectations ... and, maybe, living up to them. Diamonds in the best settings. Are these lasting? My dear, think of the Mad Hatters tea party, or possibly the current political one. We keep mov-ing around the table, pouring thoughts and desires into shifting and broken cups, partly for the fun of it. Nothing lasts. Most of us live in the moment, and, at the moment ... Feeling hungry? Here, turn in! Off the bright sidewalk, note the cool shadows, quiet and lit as if with can-dles. This is Ta-boo, a Palm Beachers place, serving generations as others have, Chuck and Harolds, now Nick & Johnnys; Testas; Charleys Crab. The DRINK ME cocktails and the houses Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. The EAT ME hors doeuvres „ how are the mussels meuniere? „ and the beef Carpaccio and grilled marinated herb shrimp. Notice, too, that Ta-boos staff has installed two women with the lookŽ in the front window. Nice hats! We suddenly feel much larger, here, more like personages. Why, do you think? Ah, the treatment. All along The Avenue, youll notice a prodigious polite-ness. Granted, we may seem to disap-pear in those elegant clothiers where we finger the price tags, first thing, the tourists and dreamers giveaway. But, nearly everywhere on the avenue, we are greeted with smiles and bright faces, never a downward snoot. Still, its a golden weekday afternoon, and these people are moving about freely here instead of squirming in a corporate setting, mouthing yessirŽ and hanging on the next message. They are, we decide, not taking life as it is dealt, like so many playing cards bending as ordered or lying flat, bemoaning what and how they were dealt. Freedom to choose, freedom to design and imagine, to dictate terms, to control o utcomes and environments, to mingle and collaborate with the best and the brightest, these are higher vir-tues. Or so we gather. Who, after all, are we? What percentage are WE in? Sorry, man, to quote the vernacular. Aint no single digit.rrrrrWe must, of course, have a scandal, lest we be left worshipping the golden idol and feeling inferior. We find one, or its aftermath, along Worth Avenue, in a glossy magazine.Attaining or joining the One Percent raises expectations. Wealth and what-ever it buys become a new normal, become that phrase often sounded in divorce cases of the rich and famous, the style to which one has become accustomed.Ž Often enough, one of the 99 per cent marries one of the One, sometimes to great sensation, especially when the 99er is young and hot and the One-sy is mature and pedigreed. Like eating and aging, sexual attraction is a great uni-versal. Notice a tag line on the cover of Florida Designs Palm Beach magazine, there, on the marble apron of a foun-tain: Roxanne Pulitzers Comeback.Ž There was a story, sex, drugs, hopes fed and crushed, social climbing on a bad ladder, the outsiders view brought inside. A flamboyant marriage, a disastrous divorce, a scandalous and titillating legacy (whatever her bodily predilections, she did not, Ms. Pulitzer says, entertain a trumpet). In the new images, she looks elegant and happy. Photos shoots are easy, my dears; life is hard. In her book, The Prize Pulitzer, she quotes a line spoken by F. Scott Fitzger-alds narrator in The Great Gatsby,Ž about the very rich: They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you are born rich, it is difficult to understand.Ž Never mind that the thought is born of a far different era, or that Fitzgerald himself spent much of his life in the company of one-tenth-of-one-percenters. Of the mighty, we like to think the worst. A high profile presents the easiest target, but a more telling motive for fixating on the rich might be envy.

But here, my dear, in these carefully tended venues, doesnt your reaction depend as much on the lens youre viewing it through? We marvel at their success, delight in their attainments, relish their sins and public failings. For now, consider that theyŽ are each.Ž From the many, one, maybe. E pluribus unum. But how about E uni-bus pluram? You cant have the One Percent without the one. One at a time, one by one. Palm Beach County had its titans: Henry Morrison Flagler, Addi-son Mizner, Arthur Vining Davis, John D. MacArthur. They were called, in those early days, oil tycoons, railroad magnates, real estate moguls. They built things, or financed and saw them built: hotels, resorts, railroads, highways, subdivi-sions, shipping lines, networks, cities, and they left their names, on buildings, parks, memorials, charities. Against these forebears, latecomers such as Donald Trump, with his many tow-ers risen along the oceanfront and his part-time residence at Mar-a-Lago and his self-inflated public profile, might seem recherche. They, too, though, are builders. We cant deny that these one percenters, or maybe these one-tenth of same, get things done. Out here, arent we all, in some sense, their guests? Dont we all, for better or worse, follow their designs? We can drive all over Palm Beach County and see their handiwork, in its museums and performance halls, in its many colleges and universities, in parks and gardens and scenic walkways. We can extol the nourishing fundament of Foundations and Charitable Trusts. Look into any big institution, public or private, and you will find their names on plaques of dedication. We can find something to admire, to aspire to, to mimic. First-class, premium, deluxe, extra-fancy, the lan-guage of attainment has been stolen by advertising, slapped onto a whole lot of reprobate products and services, but it still sells. Isnt THIS, in some variation, what most of us think we want? The good meals in welcoming atmosphere? The summer house? The boat? Boats, ah, the One Percent, at least in public image, is anchored in them.rrrrrTied along the quay at Palm Beach, or Boca Raton, or Jupiter Island, two, four, six, 10, yacht-see!

No fantasies, please, people! You think the One Percent dont realize how lucky they are? Try these names, gilded across the sterns: Luck-a-lee IV, Lukousaurus, Lucky Stars. Sure, theres some hubris, Victory, Moon-raker, Rock n Roll. But you get a little humor, too: Carbon Copy. No Whey. Knowing youre lucky or easy, at least, doesnt guarantee compassion or social interest. But, excuse me, how much did WE give to charity last year? I leave that answer to you. Back to another mode of transport ... rrrrr... the motorcar, for an excursion! Weve lost our white van, but well pick up another. Go ahead, play some chess on your tablets or iPhones, if youd like, and well try a few thor-oughfares not far from the sea. We can, whenever we like, pull into the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club in Boca Raton. Up from Boca Raton through Delray and Boynton and Ocean Ridge on A1A, the two-lane roadways themselves could be found anywhere, but they gain a particular luster when they turn through tunnels of overhanging live oak or pine or, even more, when they separate stanchions of iron and ceramic columns and gates, guarding private roads that lift away toward half-glimpsed palaces. These might mean what our more modest habitations mean to us, only more so: shelter, self-expression, ref-uge. Those with wealth, power, respon-sibility, fame, they have more coming at them than most, the usual routine wannabes and followers and seekers and shysters, much more in this age of electronic intrusion, and also, beyond any connivance, the drumbeat of work-place demand and obligation, the needs and beseechments of others. They need to get away. Stay in order, please, as we pull into the crowded lot at PGA National Resort and Spa, Palm Beach Gardens. Maybe you come just to play golf, to be treated like someone superior, to BE here. We envy those who seem comfortable here, who joke with the service staff, seem to know them, and care. The ambiance is a matter of envy and also of appreciation and aspiration, breathing better air. And the service ... the Spa seems more like Oz than Wonderland: rub-rub here, snip-snip there, and a couple of la-dee-dahs! Plush Papaya Body Treat-ment $170, Detox Seaweed Wrap $125, Youthful Renewal Treatment $155, Deep Swedish Massage $125. Simple life? Give me the One Percent body balm! Right here at the bar in the main clubhouse, looking out over red cano-pies at poolside to verdant fairways beyond, we cozy on the comfortable stools, surrounded by fieldstone and fireplaces and warmly burnished wood and the gleam of polished brass. Youll notice that foursome down at the end, there, men in golf shirts and baseball caps, women in sun dresses, sipping Macallan 18 and Glenlivet, and hear one of the men say, Do you have any idea what kind of freedom were going to have when we move here? Tremen-dous freedom!Žrrrrr To the car again, and north through Jupiter Island, (median home price $5.6 million, according to Forbes Magazine) on South Beach Road. Many of these grounds „ how many qualify as estates? „ have names, offered on roadside signs: Almost Heaven, House of the Turtle, Odysseys End, Sunnyseasons, Plein Sod, On the Brink, Eagle Nest. What do these showplaces mean to the occupants? Shelter, sanctuary, retreat, domain, refuge, domicile, hideaway. Home. That could just as easily be a condo or rental or double-wide. To argue with F. Scott Fitzgeralds narra-tor, at birth and death and more often in-between than we might think, the rich ARE like us. We can wonder how often, in following their interests and exercising their power, they keep that in mind. Weve seen many uniforms on this tour. Waiters and waitresses, atten-dants, sales people. Drivers, gardeners, nannies, personal secretaries, mainte-nance and repair people. The staff. Nearly everything were seeing today, in fact, is maintained by a great army from the 99 Percent. They are the other cards in the deck, not the royal flush. They are part of the same game, but less visible in memory than a vanishing cat. Some of them leave a smile. Coming off Jupiter Island, here we are, now, a step into old Florida, the restaurant Harry and the Natives. Our hosts are hard-working, long-standing, not rich. This is Pauline MacArthur, nee Brown, who is 97, widow of Jack, mother of Harry and Paula, and she will sing for you, in clear voice: When youre smiling, the whole world smiles with you.Ž Paula, taking care of receipts just there, has another wise thought about happiness: You gotta set up your life the way you want it.Ž On the way back, a song is playing on the car radio, hear it? Dust in the Wind.Ž Heres the telling lyric, all your money ... wont another minute buy ... Ž Well, maybe. Medical care, legal defense, insurance, protective ser-vices, personal trainers and dieticians, therapists ... Maybe you CAN buy some extra time. But please consider, dear friends, as we regain our parking spot here on Royal Poinciana Way, what matters more: To be loved and cared about, called by our own names. To have a reason for living. To be somebody. Also, to be safe, secure and still venturesome, to know surprise and delight. Also, to reckon fairly, to see ourselves as others see us, to walk in someone elses Fer-ragamos. We thank you all, now, for your kind attention, and any gratuity is welcome. As you leave, remember that you cant bottle and sell love and health and happiness, though many, MANY keep trying. Give a moments thought to Alices wonderland, to forever blowing bubbles and always chasing rainbows. We may not have forever and always, but bubbles and rainbows, like the diamonds in the windows of jewelers on Worth Avenue, gleam and sparkle in the same light, and they dont cost nearly as much. Remember that this IS the Palm Coast, and please note that you are heading away into a golden afternoon.

N N N O O A A V V V A A I A A A A A V V V V V A A A I I In S S o o S Se e b be Jamie looked in the mirror and burst into tears. She felt fat and ugly and just hated herself. She doubted any of the boys in her high school class would ever be interested in her. Even the new designer jeans shed angled for didnt help her feel any better. In the next room, her mother Sheila looked through her closet in defeat. Nothing fits right anymore,Ž she groaned. Since menopause, her midsection had thickened and she hated how she looked in her clothes. If she werent such a chicken, shed have liposuction all over her body. Her husband and children were tired of her endless complaints about her appearance. If only she realized how her worry and obsession about aging sent a harmful message to Jamie. We live in an age that popularizes an ideal-ized, largely unattainable version of beauty. The media sends a powerful message about the impor-tance of ones appearance, with wound-ing criteria about whats acceptable or ideal. Airbrushed, larger than life imag-es of flawless, preening superstars and models are often touted to represent the epitome of beauty. Those who allow this depiction to become their standard of success are at risk of feeling terribly inadequate. In this atmosphere, teenagers often feel tremendous insecurities about their appearance and perceive embarrassing flaws in their bodies. Unfortunately, they may become so self-critical that they will be unable to accept anything less than what they believe is perfect. They may torment themselves by play-ing a never-ending script: Ill never measure up. Everyone will judge me by my flaws.Ž In her recent book, The Gifts of Imperfection,Ž researcher Brene Brown laments the emotional damage caused by the quest to be perfect.Ž She states: We all need to feel worthy of love and belonging, and our worthiness is on the line when we feel like we are never (ƒ) enough (you can fill in the blank: thin, beautiful, smart, extraordinary, talented, popular, pro-moted, admired, accomplished). Perfectionism is not the same thing as striving to be our best. Perfection-ism is not about healthy achievement and growth; its a shield. Perfectionism is a 20-ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us when, in fact, its the thing thats really preventing us from being seen and taking flight. We get sucked into perfection for one very simple reason: We believe perfec-tion will protect us. Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look per-fect and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment and shame. Parents are hugely instrumental in whether their children develop a healthy sense of self. Its important for parents to pay attention to their own insecuri-ties about their appearance because their attitudes will greatly influence their children. Mothers who bemoan every additional wrinkle or pound may unwittingly contribute to their daugh-ters shaky self-image. Although fathers may believe that ogling shapely women while they are out with their wives and children is totally harmless, in fact, they may be sending messages of dis-respect. A teen may assume that her parents and the world will be just as critical or focused on her appearance as they are of their own. Implicit in their complaint is the distinct message that a womans worth is measured by her external beauty. As parents, we can take steps to help our children develop healthier self-esteems. If we can become less self-critical, we will communicate a power-ful message to our sons and daughters about how to love and respect them-selves and to be at peace with their imperfections. And of course, we should restrain from openly discussing dismay about our appearances in front of our children. We should make a point of complimenting their inner qualities of respect, consideration and compassion. And, of course, our sons benefit from all of the ab ove, as much as our daughters. It should help to highlight the value and accomplishments of a wide range of individuals, emphasizing attributes other than appearance. Finding role models from every walk of life should further encourage this mindset. If we can encourage educators to look for opportunities to challenge media mes-saging and open up candid discussions of media distortions and negative influ-ence, our message can be further rein-forced. Brown encourages us to cultivate the courage to embrace our imperfections to believe we are enough „ that we are worthy of l ove, belonging and joy. She asks why were all so afraid to let our true selves be seen and known. The challenge of course is to let go of worrying about what others think and to appreciate what is uniquely special about each of us.

Q Jupiter Scripps scientist awarded $1 million for stress-associated disease and aging research SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Insti-tute has been awarded more than $1 million from the National Insti-tutes of Health to devel-op a range of new tests that could lead to new treatments for a number of stress-associated and degenerative disor-ders of advancing age. Shuji Kishi, an assistant professor at Scripps Research, is the principal investiga-tor for the three-year study. The new tests will focus on diseases linked to oxidative stress (and the stress-induced inflammation that often accompa-nies it), closely associated with aging. Those diseases include atherosclerosis, Alzheim-ers and Parkinsons disease, diabetes, heart attack, sarcopenia, liver and kidney disease, and stroke. Despite the widespread damage caused by oxidative stress, the number of thera-peutic remedies for it remains virtually non-existent. During periods of cellular stress, such as exposure to UV radiation or chronic dis-eases like cancer, the level of highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules in cells can increase, resulting in misfolded proteins and cell damage. Cells can protect themselves from this damage by activating certain anti-oxidant genes, but age and extended periods of stress can impair that response. In the new study, Mr. Kishi plans to develop a series of tests to identify drug leads that will prevent oxidative damage in a novel vertebrate model. His approach will involve high-content screens in zebrafish. The cell-based assays can be pursued using the ultra-high-throughput screen-ing resources available at Scripps Florida, including a chemical library comprised of approximately 1 million compounds with structures that we know have properties suitable for drug development,Ž Mr. Kishi said in a prepared statement. Beyond the cell-based tests, Mr. Kishi plans to use newly developed transgenic zebrafish as a model organism for testing any drug candidates uncovered during cell-based screening. Those with potential after this round of testing will then be further evaluated to determine organ specificity and developmental toxicity, and for overall efficacy in preventing oxidative damage. We want to understand how these selected small molecules work in the zebraf-ish so that additional drugs can be designed based on the in vivo antioxidant response,Ž Mr. Kishi said. Mr. Kishis laboratory is broadly focused on developing experimental models of aging and geriatric diseases, including neu-rodegenerative diseases.

Renewable energy big topic at climate expo at West Palm convention center BY CHRIS FELKERcfelker@” oridaweekly. comThe 2012 Florida Green, Energy and Climate Confer-ence/Expo is rapid-ly approaching; late last week, several exhibitor spaces still were available for the May 16-17 event at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach. This year, the conference is being staged under the umbrella of the new Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, formed earlier this year when the Palms West and Greater Lake Worth chambers joined forces. But Anitra Harmon, who coordinated Green Conference efforts for Palms West when it was the sponsor, is still in charge of assembling the lineup of panel members and guest speakers. A big topic at this event will be renewable energy, which is especially timely since these greenŽ forms of energy were the subject of the first comprehensive energy legislation to be considered in Florida in four years … House Bill 7117, passed by large margins in both chambers of the leg-islature. The legislation sets aside $16 million for tax incentives to wind energy, solar power generation and biofuel compa-nies. Gov. Rick Scott let it become law April 13 without his signature, promis-ing that he would work for its repeal if it doesn't deliver on its pledge to provide energy savings to Floridians. HB 7117 will be one subject of the Green Conference's annual legislative panel presentation, which this year is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to noon on the expo's second day, Thursday, May 17. It will be moderated again by Michael W. Sole, vice president of state gov-ernmental affairs for Florida Power & Light and a former secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Participants in that panel will include Sen. Maria Sachs, R-District 30; Rep. Lori Berman, D-District 86; Sen. Chris Smith, D-District 29; and Rep. Scott Plakon, R-District 37. The 100 Cities Summit, in its third year as a conference feature, will once again focus on How to Green Your City.Ž Two general sessions will show-case successful public/private part-nerships shared by officials of invited cities that are leading the way in sus-tainable growth in Florida. Harmon said that Palm Beach Gardens Mayor David Levy has signed up to participate but that invitations to Jupiter and Juno Beach officials have not received responses. Other presentations at the exposition will answer the question Whats New in Renewables?Ž and will include information on wind turbines, solar and ocean energy installations, waste-to-energy plants and the use of biofu-els. The conference is basically a great oppor-tunity, said Harmon, for business professionals and government officials as well as the public to learn from and con-nect with deci-sion-makers in sustainability-minded Flor-ida organiza-tions. Its focus is on education and networking that can advance individuals and businesses in todays green-focused econo-my. In a phone interview, Harmon said: We have upwards of 80 attendees coming into West Palm Beach for the conference this year. This is the third year that we've done the 100 Cities initiative, and it's been growing each year. I think more and more people are becoming aware of it.Ž That part of the exposition brings together officials in government and private business who are trying to advance efforts by munici-palities and school districts … large users of gasoline and petro-leum-based products … to lessen their carbon footprint on the envi-ronment. Harmon explained: We have a great line-up of general sessions this year, including the emerging technologies, like wind and solar, and what FAU is doing down in Boca Raton at the South-east National Marine Renewable Energy Center. They're investi-gating harnessing the Gulf Stream for generating electricity. This is all going to be part of what we're calling our Clean Energy Panel,Ž Harmon said. It will kick off on Wednesday morning, May 16, with the opening of the conference. The Solid Waste Authority is going to bring us up to date on what they're doing with their new waste-to-energy plant in western Palm Beach County,Ž she noted, with Executive Director Mark Hammond speaking. We've asked the mayor of Tallahassee [John Marks III] to come in and be on a panel to discuss 'smart grid,' the grid modernization. His city is the first in America to encom-pass … to combine … electric, natural gas and water services in a smart grid, and he's going to be sharing the panel with Dr. Alex Domijan from the University of South Florida to discuss grid mod-ernization.Ž Harmon said that another particular focus of the conference will be on the conversion of municipal and school fleets to compressed natural gas, elec-tricity or biofuel. One of the interest-ing sustainability trends that's going on now is fleet conversion, and the importance of that, because fleets use up so much oil. We're going to discuss how you go about converting the fleet, whereby they can get into compressed natural gas, biofuels, electric, propane … the alternative fuels,Ž she said. Coming from Leon County School District, we have the director of fleet conversion coming in to speak to that, because that's a real-life example of how the schools converted to compressed natural gas, and they are going to talk about its cost savings in taking that step,Ž Harmon said. That official's name is Manny Joanos, a divisional director of the Leon County schools. And in one presentation that those interested in local efforts will find fascinating, an official of the compa-ny building Florida's first wind ener-gy farmŽ will speak as part of the Renewable Clean Energy" panel that kicks off the conference, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. May 16. Robin Saiz, director of project development for Wind Capital Group, will report on where the proj-ect stands at present. It's the first commercial wind farm in Florida; we're really excited about that,Ž Harmon said. Another member of that same panel will be Susan Skemp, director of the Southeast National Marine Renew-able Energy Center at Florida Atlantic University. Other speakers will include West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio; Joseph Sanches, chief of facilities manage-ment for the Palm Beach County School District; Dale Brill, president of the Florida Chamber Foundation; and Dennis Gallon, president of Palm Beach State College. The conference is presented by Florida City Gas, Florida Public Utili-ties and ESG (Energy Systems Group). Gold sponsors are Florida Power & Light Co., Wind Capital Group, Waste Management and the county Conven-tion Bureau. Q Mounts Spring Plant Sale sprouting new shoots SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDespite the lack of April showers, May flowers are coming early anyway … in fact, theyll be busting out all over … as the Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach hosts More than a Spring Plant SaleŽ April 28-29.

Debate at PGA Corridor luncheon examines growth management changes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe PGA Corridor Association will present a lively debate at its Gaeta Annual Private Prop-erty Rights Lun-cheon on May 2; two nationally acclaimed land-use experts will debate Floridas 2011 revisions to the Growth Manage-ment Act … Love it, Hate it, Keep it, Scrap it.Ž The event, which is open to the pub-lic, takes place at the DoubleTree Hotel, in its Executive Cen-ter Grand Ballroom, beginning with net-working at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon and debate begin at noon, with an opportu-nity to talk with the speakers at 1 p.m. Debating will be:Jim Burling, director of litigation for the Pacific Legal Foundation, who will argue that the changes are a natural evolution of the law. It was enacted in 1985, when new housing and regional development, coupled with a strong economy, was moving forward rapidly. The PLF is a watchdog organization committed to defending private prop-erty rights in landmark cases nation-wide. Mr. Burling was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2012,Ž in the field of eminent domain and condemnation law. He frequently lectures in continuing legal education courses; is chair-man emeritus of the Federalist Soci-etys Environmental Law and Property Rights Practice Group and a member of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers. Richard Grosso, professor of law at NOVA Southeastern University, who directs the Environmental and Land Use Law Clinic and teaches there, will focus on the impact of the growth management changes, which give cit-ies and counties far more latitude in local development with no state oversight. Mr. Grosso is a widely recognized legal expert and poli-cy advocate on environmental issues in the state. He was an assistant general counsel to the Florida Depart-ment of Community Affairs, which was effectively dis-solved by the new law; former legal director for 1000 Friends of Flor-ida; and former execu-tive direc-tor and general coun-sel of the Everglades Law Center. He has extensive state and federal trial and appellate court experience in high-profile land-use cases, representing many major environmental organizations in Flor-ida. The Growth Management Act changes took effect last June and allow cities and counties to change their growth management plans without state permission. They represented Gov. Rick Scotts effort to cut red tape by streamlining agencies and eliminat-ing dual responsibilities, with the goal of stimulating job growth and new construction, and have led to countless discussions and debates as to how Florida will grow in the future. Some of the questions to be addressed are Will this lead to unbridled residential develop-ment in Palm Beach Countys agricultural areas or sugar-cane fields?Ž and Are new construc-tion-related jobs and a newly robust economy just around the corner?Ž\ The Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches is the speaker sponsor for the event, and table sponsorships are still available at $500 per table of 10.

For more information, see or call 989.2100. Q Veteran broker to lead new Lang Realty officeSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY With the impending demolition of the Palm Beach Mall in June to make room for a new open-air outlet center and adja-cent shopping center, there was a need to empty the enormous space of remaining fixtures and other items. Tom Carabine, president of Carabine & Associates, decided to donate the rest of those contents to Gulfstream Good-will Industries Inc. They include an ice machine, furniture, lighting and other fix-tures and bins of brand-new clothing. Goodwill was the only charity that received the items remaining. There will be about 20 truckloads in total,Ž Mr. Cara-bine said. Ed Rodie, Gulfstreams director of business development, said, Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Carabine, the ice machine will go to our Transition to Life Academy Charter School in Boynton Beach; fixtures to our new store opening in Stuart in the fall; and the clothes will be distributed to Gulfstream Goodwills 26 retail stores.Ž Proceeds will help finance programs and services that Gulfstream Goodwill Industries provides to assist people with disabilities and other barriers to employ-ment in becoming self-sufficient, working members of the community. Q Gulfstream Goodwill Industries receives donation of old mall contents SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Did you have a bowl filled with pet fish when you were young? The idea dates back to the Roman Empire, when carp were kept in marble tanks. Once panes of glass were made, a pane could be used on one side of the tank so people could more easily watch the activities of the fish. The Chinese were making large porcelain tubs for goldfish by the 1400s. Copies of these tubs are still being made and sold, although they are usu-ally used for plants, not fish. By the 19th century, there were aquariums and fish bowls that look like those found today. Raising fish became an important hobby, and the first public aquarium opened in 1853. By 1900 there were aquariums and fish bowls made in fanciful shapes, and some were even part of a planter or lamp. It is said that keeping fish is one of Americas most popular hobbies. So when a fishbowl topped by three ceramic polar bears was auctioned at Humler & Nolan in Cincinnati, its not surprising that it sold for $2,540. The fish bowl is cleverly designed. A porcelain basketŽ holds an ice cave (the bowl). Its topped by the bears, and openings show the bowl and active fish. Its about 24 inches high and 15 inches in diameter, big enough to hold a few fish and plants. The bowl is lit from below. The maker is unknown, but its signed Makonicka.Ž The bears and ice are designed in a style popular after 1890.Q: A few years ago, I bought a round 60-inch dining-room table with a pedes-tal base at a Los Angeles antique shop. The dealer told me the table was made in Germany, but theres no label or mark on it. The interesting thing about it is that theres a thick base under the tabletop that hides eight leaves. You can lift the top of the table and rotate the leaves out so they form a ring around the table, making the tabletop 80 inches in diameter. Have you ever seen a table like this?A: Your table is called a perimeter table,Ž and the leaves are referred to as perimeter leaves.Ž The style has been around for decades and some cabinetmak-ers are building them today. A U.S. patent for this sort of table was granted in 1911. That was during an era when all sorts of different table extension designs were being invented.Q: Im trying to find information about my 5-foot Col. Sanders metal weather-vane. I was among the crew who remod-eled a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Miami in 1980. The weathervane was going to be trashed, and I was the only worker who wanted it. So I took it home and stored it in my garage for 32 years. The weathervane is a full figure of Col. Sanders holding his cane up in the air. The weathervane must have stood on top of the restaurant for about 20 years. What is it worth? How should I sell it?A: Harland Sanders (18901980) opened his first restau-rant in Corbin, Ky., in 1930. The first Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise opened in 1952, and there were 600 by 1964. We have seen Col. Sanders weathervanes for sale at antique shows for about $500. But a few have sold at auction for $1,000 or more. Price depends not only on where and how you sell it, but also on condition. If your weathervane is not rusty and the colors arent faded, contact an auction that specializes in advertis-ing. You will have to pay a commission.Q: Were moving and have a collection of old pictures in frames that my great-grandfather bought for $10 at a barn sale in the 1950s. One is a print of cattle and ducks thats signed by James M. Hart. Under his signature are the words copyrighted 1899 by James M. Hart.Ž There are some brown stains in the corner. Is it worth anything?A: James McDougal Hart was born in Scotland in 1828. His family immigrated to Albany, N.Y., in 1830. Hart started out as a sign painters apprentice, then studied art in Germany. In 1854 he opened a studio in Albany. Later, he opened studios in Brook-lyn and Keene Valley, N.Y. Hart died in 1901. Several of his works are in museums today. The brown stains on your print are called foxingŽ and can be caused by dete-rioration due to age or by exposure to heat, cold or humidity. If your pictures were stored in a barn, conditions were not ideal. Some oil paintings by James M. Hart sell for several thousand dollars. But his prints, in perfect condition, sell for just a few hundred dollars. Your print would be dif-ficult to sell since it is in poor condition.Tip: If you buy an old teddy bear at a garage sale, bring it home and put it in a plastic bag with some mothballs for a few weeks. Dont let the mothballs touch the bear. The fur and stuffing of old bears attract many types of hungry insects.

FLORIDA WEEKLY INSIDE Terrific tortillasAlfa Lopez makes them fresh each night at Rocco’s Taco’s. B19 X Don’t be a chump“Chimpanzee” is a poorly executed documentary, our critic says. B9 X BY SCOTT SocietySee who’s out and about in Palm Beach County. B10-12, 17-18 X ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE B SECTION WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 Mainstreet at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens, in conjunction with the Borland Center for the Performing Arts, is bring-ing a first to the area: an independent film festival based on the underground swed-ingŽ craze of the past few years. The term has nothing to do with Swedes or Sweden, so those of Swedish descent should not be offended. Instead, it comes from the 2008 comedy Be Kind Rewind.Ž A swedeŽ is defined as a no-budget, laughably bad remake of a hit Hollywood film Counterculture cinematographers embraced the film form, resulting in the very first swede festŽ in Fresno, Calif. Next came swede fest Tampa Bay, and now its the Palm Beaches turn. Independent film festivals have a long history of bringing quality, undiscovered talent to the forefront; but a swede fest does the opposite. It can bring forth some entertainingly bad spoofs, and thats what organizers are counting on. Entries are being sought now for the July 27 festival, which will be at 7 p.m. at the Borland Center, 4801 PGA Blvd. There is no charge for submis-sions, and the deadline is July 13. Tickets to the event do cost $5; how-ever, those who enter films receive two free tickets. According to the festival organizers news release: Swede fest is not a competition, so we try to avoid comparisons that come from multiple swedes of the same film. We recommend that swede-makers embrace the amateur nature of sweding and opt to use found objects rather than spend any real money making these movies. The actual genius comes from how ones personality and/or sense of humor shines through.Ž For examples of this genre of film, see The organiz-ers say that anyone with any type of camera may enter, although the works themselves must be submitted on a DVD. Also: Films must be under three minutes and PG-13, even if the source material is not. This means finding creative ways to get around any violence, objectionable language and nudity.Ž All of the rules are on the swede fest palm beach website,, along with examples. Those inter-ested in sweding a film must e-mail and call dibs on the film. For more call Belle Forino at 282-4623 or e-mail Q SUNFEST CELEBRATES ITS 30TH FESTIVAL along the West Palm Beach water-front May 2-6. It started out as a cute little waterfront jazz festival designed to extend season by a couple of weeks. Twenty-nine seasons later, it attracts about 275,000 visitors who still come each year to hear jazz, plus alternative rock, classic rock, reggae and a little ska. SunFest isnt just about the music. The works of more than 165 national artists will be on display in the BB&T Juried Fine Art & Craft show. Look for jewelry, paintings, pottery and ceramics, photography, sculpture and works in wood and other media. And its all along downtown West Palm Beachs newly landscaped waterfront, which organizers last year referred to as a gift. With that in mind, we offer you 10 reasons to attend this years Sun-Fest. 1. He is Orthodox Jewish, but there is nothing orthodox about the backbeat of Matisyahus music. The reg-gae star has been making the rounds of Flori-da, and why not? He has relatives here „ his aunt, Lynn Allison, is vice mayor of Ocean Ridge, and his motor home has been seen parked in front of her house.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY It was a classic oversell. The ad for the house „ much like an online dating profile „ promised big things: a great neighborhood, excellent square foot-age, modern appliances. If the house were a man, hed be 6-foot-2, gainfully employed and driving a foreign-made car. But when the real estate agent drove me to a dingy neighborhood and parked in front of a piece of property sand-wiched between a tattoo parlor and a pizza joint, I knew this was a case of misrepresentation. My great potential boyfriend was actually 5-foot-2 and still living at home. You have got to be kidding,Ž I said to the agent. He gave me a disdainful look. I can tell you havent seen many houses in your price range,Ž he said, as if my unemployed, height-challenged date were telling me, Baby, you aint gonna do any better than this.Ž My spirits flagged but I pressed on, the way people will soldier through bad date after bad date, armed only with relent-less optimism. They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince, and I kissed every frog in the county. Until finally my broker called with good news. I found it,Ž he said. The One.ŽMy Prince Charming.I imagined tall windows and good closet space. I kept my fingers crossed for a full kitchen and sizable bedroom. I hoped my new beau „ I mean, house „ would have hardwood floors. But when I saw my agent the next morning, he was glum. Bad news,Ž he said. We lost the place. It went two hours after I called you.Ž My prince already had a partner.But do you want to see it anyway?Ž the broker said. Just to see whats avail-able in the neighborhood?Ž I should have said no. Like a crush on a married man, it could only end in heartbreak. My broker drove me to a stately neighborhood with old trees standing on the corners and the river just visible in the distance. The house itself was dignified. Grand, even. As he unlocked the front door, light spilled out. I could see floor-to-ceiling windows covering an entire wall. I could see there was good closet space, and the oak floors gleamed in the sunshine pouring through the windows. I pressed my hand to my chest. You just broke my heart,Ž I said to the agent. You like it?ŽIts perfect.ŽIn hindsight, it wasnt perfect. The kitchen was too small and those big windows fronted the street. It probably got loud at night. Id need more space and the living room had an odd shape. But I didnt consider any of that as I stood in the foyer drenched in sunlight, mourning the fact that someone else had gotten there first. Later that night a friend shared this bit of wisdom: One day someone will walk into your life and make you see why it never worked out with any-one else. She was right, I told myself. The perfect someone „ the perfect place „ is out there. I just have to keep looking. Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSSearching for perfection artis

There typi-cally is a range of works at the show; many reflect SunFests tropical setting.3. Its your chance to rock out! Veterans Joan Jett and the Blackhearts take the Tire Kingdom Stage at 9 p.m. May 5. Tallahassees Creed plays its audience-pleasers at 9:45 p.m. May 4 on the Bank of America Stage. Post-grunge rockers Third Eye Blind do their thing at 9:30 p.m. May 5 on the Bank of America Stage. But its not all rock. Snoop Dog raps at 8:45 p.m. May 3 on the Bank of America Stage and Herbie Hancock swings at 8 p.m. May 3 on the Tire Kingdom Stage, reminding audiences that SunFest started out as a jazz festival.4. Sometimes, its nice to slow down and rest at an event like SunFest. Hence, the Oasis (make that Oases; there are three of em). The Captain Morgan barges will offer tropi-cal drinks. Nothing like a little rum and relaxation on the water.5. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones combine a heady mix of ska and punk to keep that island beat going „ never mind that they originally are from Cambridge, Mass. They released their latest album, The Magic of Youth,Ž last December. They play at 4:15 p.m. May 5 on the FPL Stage.6. The TGi5K. Where else can you run before you party? The race gets under way at 5 p.m. May 4 in down-town West Palm Beach. A misty-style rinse area is available for runners after the race, or they can use the showers at Ultima Fitness, at the corner of Clematis Street and South Dixie Highway, for a $1 towel charge. The race begins south of Southern Boulevard, at Edmor and Flagler drives and takes runners into Sun-Fest. It cost $45, but that includes free admission to SunFest, plus one beer/water/soft drink.7. SunFests Rock and Roll Shootout. There have been four weeks of compe-tition at Seminole Coconut Creek lead-ing up a performance by the winning Rosco Martinez Band at 2 p.m. May 5 on the Tire Kingdom Stage. The band mixes psychedelic rock, soul and blues with spicy Latin rhythms.8. The Youth Park. SunFest recognizes that art and cool music arent necessarily kids stuff, so that is why each year organizers create a mini-SunFest, with activities and entertain-ment designed for children. Worried about being separated from the rug rats in a crowd? SunFest offers its Tag-a-Kid program, in which kids wear a numbered wristband that is linked to a parent or guardians contact info. By the way, admission for children 5 and under is free. Kids 6-12: $8 in advance, $10 at the gate.9. You may be asking yourself: Is that beer or is it art? Actually, it will be both on May 5-6, as the Coors Light Silver Bullet Aluminum Pint splashes into the festival as 3-D street art. A painter will create a work of art that appears to pop from the ground when photographed. 10. Fireworks!

Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome This deal occurred in a tournament played in France in 1963 to select the French representative that year to the annual European team championship. And quite a deal it was! It started off innocently enough when Jacques Stetten, playing with Leon Tint-ner, opened third-hand with one spade. East bid two hearts „ he had values to spare for his modest overcall, but no better call was available „ and South bid three diamonds. At this point, the bidding became frenetic. North bid three hearts, a cuebid indicating a strong hand with a probable void in hearts, and East doubled. After two passes, North then bid four hearts! This was a further cuebid, confirming the heart void, and even more impor-tantly, it urged South to bid a slam in either diamonds or spades, depending on his hand. South quickly accepted the invitation by bidding six diamonds. True, South had only 10 high-card points (six of which he knew were wasted opposite Norths void). But South also had a seven-card suit and a void in clubs that North could not possibly know about. Not only that, but when East doubled, Tintner had enough confidence in his partners bidding and his own values to redouble! East „ holding A-A-A-K „ no doubt thought his opponents had gone berserk and would pay heavily for their indiscretion. But that wasnt how things turned out. Tintner easily made six diamonds redoubled for a score of 1,330 points, losing only a diamond trick, and poor East was left wondering what in the world had hit him.

Suite 155 Harbour Financial Center 2401 PGA Boulevard s Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410The Perfect Fusion of The Contemporary and The Classic Phone: 561.623.0509 Fax: 561.623.0609 FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 B9 ++ Is it worth $10? NoWe criticize feature films all the time when they go into production without a finished script and the results are poor, so why not do the same for documen-taries? To be clear, documentary producers ordinarily have an agenda to fulfill and orient their stories toward whatever they want the audience to believe. But Disney-nature, the Mouse House offshoot responsible for prior Earth Day documentaries Earth,Ž OceansŽ and African Cats,Ž shot Chim-panzeeŽ for three years in African jungles without any idea how it would become a feature documen-tary. And after seeing the film, one can fairly say they still have no idea what to do with the footage. The focus of directors Alastair Fothergil and Mark Linfield seems to be the similarities chimps share with humans. As narrator Tim Allen tells us in the opening, a chimps world is one of drama, sadness and joyŽ „ just like ours. Mr. Fothergill and Mr. Linfield proceed to spotlight Oscar, a baby chimpanzee whos learning the ways of the world from his mother, Isha (as usual, the filmmakers give the animals human names to make them more relatable). Fair enough and interesting for 15 minutes, but this is a cutesy novelty, not a compelling thesis. Whats more, for a 78-minute film, not much happens. We watch Isha teach Oscar how to eat, sleep, etc. for about 45 minutes. Nothing changes until Oscar has to fend for himself. What this means is that the story is out of whack and lacks direc-tion, and theres nothing here to elevate what were seeing over a National Geo-graphic TV show. Admittedly, though, the likeness between chimps and humans are fas-cinating. Notably, the eyes, ears, nose hands and feet all bear striking simi-larities. Chimps also, curiously, have the ability to think and strategize. In one scene, troop leader Freddy leads the pack to surround a group of mon-keys and lure them into a trap. When it works, our interest is piqued „ but then theres nothing of substance to fol-low it with. To their credit, Mr. Fothergill and Mr. Linfield try to keep things visu-ally dynamic. Time-lapse photography shows the evolution of flowers and plants blooming, a spider spinning its web and water flowing through a crevice. Unfortunately, the filmmakers struggle with the action sequences, and its hard to tell whos who when a rival troop of chimps attacks. As for the nar-rator, Mr. Allen does what he can with the material, but when hes forced into silly jokes „ Dont forget the side salad!Ž as the chimps eat plant leaves after feasting on a dead monkey „ it all feels childish and trite. No G-rated movie from Disney ever would, could or should be more edgy or controversial, but it does need to have more structure. There might not have been a better story to tell from the footage, but something more creative is sorely needed to make this more appealing. ChimpanzeeŽ might appeal to hardcore animal lovers, but anyone else will want their money back. Q LATEST FILMS‘Chimpanzee’ >> Disneynature will donate a portion of the opening week proceeds to the Jane Goodall Institute, which helps protect chimpanzees and their habitats. i t l M a s dan The Three Stooges ++ (Chris Diamantapoulos, Sean Hayes, Will Sasso) The three delightfully inept title characters try to raise money to save the orphanage in which they lived until they were 35. Its not always funny, but this is an earnest homage to the classic StoogesŽ shorts from the 1930s. Rated PG.Lockout +++ (Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare) In 2079, an ex-CIA agent (Mr. Pearce) is sent to an outer space prison to rescue the presidents daughter (Ms. Grace) from the convicts whove taken over. Some of the visual effects are car-toonish and the story is predictable, but its also a fun premise that delivers on the action. Rated PG-13.Bully +++ (Alex, Kelby, JaMaya) Filmmaker Lee Hirsch chronicles various school-children who are victims of bully-ing throughout the United States. Its maudlin and manipulative, and lacks perspective outside of that of the vic-tims, but it nicely accomplishes its goal of inspiring you to act against bullying. Rated PG-13. Q CAPSULES

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13Museum of Golf exhibit honors famed triumvirate of sport SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTo celebrate the coincidental 100th birthdays of the Greatest Triumvi-rate of American GolfŽ „ Byron Nelson, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan „ the PGA Museum of Golf in Port St. Lucie is hosting a special exhibit honoring the trios legendary contributions to the game. The three all were born within seven months of each other in 1912 and are, to this day, some of the most revered and imitated golfers of all time. Golf enthusiasts will be able to view historical photographs of and books about Messrs. Snead, Hogan and Nel-son when the collection goes on dis-play at the museum. The collection includes Mr. Hogans famous Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of GolfŽ series, pub-lished in Sports Illustrated in 1957, with a bound edition coauthored and autographed by renowned golf writer Herbert Warren Wind. At the same time, the museum also unveils an exhibit of rare Shank-less Irons,Ž including the sets first prototype „ an unusually shaped 6-iron. The one-of-a-kind clubs were designed in the 50s by PGA member and club maker John Bernardi, long-time head PGA professional at the Worcester (Mass.) Country Club, site of the first Ryder Cup championship in 1927. The PGA Museum of Golf is open to the public, free of charge, Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It contains the Probst Library, which houses the second-biggest collection of golf periodicals in the world as well as the four major championship trophies. Messrs. Hogan, Nelson and Snead, all loyal members of The PGA of America, won an incredible 198 official PGA Tour events between them, including 21 major championships. They also combined for a 16-3-1 record as members of a collective 11 U.S. Ryder Cup teams and served as cap-tain seven times, with a combined 6-0-1 record. They all also served as club professionals and were an inspiration to countless PGA golfers past and pres-ent. And although Mr. Bernardis shankless irons „ which cut off the hosel at the neck of the iron then welded it into the back of the blade „ never caught on, he did get a patent on the design.

Q Top winners announced in Loxahatchee photo contest SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFrom among the more than 140 images entered, the top winners were crowned April 13 in the third annual Loxahatchee River Photography Con-test. Participants and the public gathered for an exhibition of the submissions and unveiling of the winners at the River Center, which is in Burt Reynolds Park at 805 N. U.S. Highway 1 in Jupiter. The Grand Prize went to Bryan Clark for Manatee Portrait,Ž and he received $300 and a workshop with award-win-ning photojournalist and acclaimed nature photographer John J. Lopinot. First-place winners were: Christa Halstead for SurrealŽ in the category Human Dimensions; Edward Butzin for Cooling OffŽ in the Fauna category and Im NOT HappyŽ in the Busch Wildlife (wild animal portraits) group; and Lisa Morse for Ferny OakŽ in the Flora category. From among the 17-and-younger participants entries, first-place award-ees were: Cameron Ennis for Mutual BondŽ in Human Dimensions; Bryan Pepper for A Splash of ColorŽ in Fauna and Red Tree-OŽ in Busch Wildlife; and Chris Catoe for Pink HibiscusŽ in Flora. The first-, secondand third-place finishers in each category were awarded nice prizes donated by local businesses, including paddleboard certificates from Jupiter Pointe Paddling and passes to the Palm Beach Zoo at Dreher Park. All the images entered, which evoke the reasons why the Loxahatchee River has become so beloved by the commu-nity, are on display through April at the River Center. One of the states most unique environmental treasures, the Loxahatchee was the first of only two federally des-ignated National Wild & Scenic Rivers in Florida. It winds through freshwater marshes and cypress swamps down to the brackish estuary, and empties through the Jupiter Inlet into the Atlan-tic Ocean. The River Center, which opened in 2003, presents some of the largest aquatic exhibits in the region, with an interactive exploration of the river, its diverse wildlife and environmental value. It is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The annual photography contest is made possible by the Loxahatchee River District, which is responsible for preserving and protecting the river through innovative wastewater man-agement, research and education.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 CUISINEMixed with loveRocco’s Tacos tortilla maker can create 500 in five hours. BY JAN NORRISjnorris@” oridaweekly.comHeres a tip for you: When you eat at Roccos Tacos, order the corn tortillas. Not only are they handmade fresh daily, but theyre a taste of history on the plate. Corn tortillas have been a traditional food in the Americas since the Aztecs ruled „ and Alfa Lopez, 32, is a living link to that history at Roccos Tacos new Palm Beach Gardens restaurant. Its here she works the night shift as a tortilla maker. At night, the Chiapas, Mexico, native forms by hand every corn tortilla that wraps the tacos. While nobody had to teach her how to make them, Big City Restaurant corporate chef Lisabet Summa did have to train her to do it for a professional kitchen and stay ahead of the number of tacos, tamales, chimichan-gas and flautas that Roccos serves. Mrs. Lopez wasnt trained in restaurant work. She was cleaning offices above the Roccos Tacos on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach when her friend, who worked in the kitchen, suggested she apply for an opening. At first, she was intimidated by the chef, she said, but once she learned how to make the tortillas in large batches, she began to relax and quickly caught on to the rhythms of the working kitchen. When Rocco Mandel, managing partner, opened the Palm Beach Gardens branch, she was moved to the important night shift at the restaurant on PGA Boulevard. I make a stack of about 100 at a time and put them in a cloth-lined basket to keep them fresh,Ž she said. Shell make 300 to 500 during her shift, even more on busy weekend nights when diners might be waiting up to an hour for a proper table seat. It was loco,Ž she said of the grand opening „ so far, her busiest time. Crowds thronged the restaurant every night for a week, and kept extra staff members who were brought in from the four other restaurants working at a warp speed. The hundreds of tortillas she makes at Roccos are a far cry from the 20 or so she makes one at a time for her spouse and four youngsters at home. We eat tortillas at every meal „ breakfast with eggs, with our beans and with meat for tacos, bur-ritos and flautas.Ž As for many Mexicans, the staple tortilla represents a connection her to home and her childhood. Mrs. Lopez remembers making her first tortillas back on her fathers coffee farm in Chiapas when she was 6 or 7 years old. To feed the farmworkers, she was taught by her mother to make the thin corn cakes „ after grinding the corn to make the maize flour. We did everything by hand at home,Ž she said. We grew the corn, then dried it. You have to wash it, cook it and put it through the grinder.Ž She cranked the air with her arm to illustrate as she spoke through an interpreter. It was a lot of work.Ž It is still done that way in much of the country. In Mexico, you dont buy tor-tillas at a store „ you make them from scratch for the meal.Ž Mrs. Lopez comes in for her evening shift at Roccos around 4 p.m., and gets to work doing a few odd prep jobs such as wrapping desserts before settling in at the tortilla station. She mixes water with the dried corn flour she scoops from the 100-pound bags Roccos buys. How much is determined by her swishing a gloved hand through the mixture. No recipe. I just know,Ž she says. When the dough is mixed „ in about 4 minutes using the huge commercial mixer „ shes ready to work. Her station is set up next to an electric nonstick griddle. She pinches off a golf ball-sized piece of dough and rolls it between her hands. On a standard metal tortilla press thats lined with non-stick plastic sheets, she centers the dough, and presses hard and fast to flatten it. A perfectly round, paper-thin tortilla is made. Its placed on the griddle and the process repeated until eight tortillas „ all per-fect and looking as though they were stamped from a machine „ are cooking at once. Halfway through the cooking, a minute or more she guesses, she flips them with her fingers. Tiny brown spots appear when the corn is toasted, and the tortilla puffs lightly. Now theyre done and set into the towel-lined bin that will soon hold the stack for the dinner rush. For a demonstration, she took her time, but through the course of the evening, she can make up to 500 in five hours. Very few are left over, she says, and those are not used for tacos. They might last,Ž she said, but only for one day. We dont use them for customers meals „ they must be fresh for the tacos.Ž Just then, Keith Friia, the sous chef, asked for four tortillas. He laid them out on a plate and filled them to make the taco special of the night „ octopus, shrimp, onion, tomato, roasted garlic, olives and spinach. Roccos special taco sauce was drizzled over all. Diners have a choice of flour or corn tortillas, crispy or soft, he said. Some diners prefer the flour, but think the corn is best,Ž Mr. Friia said. Mrs. Lopez is proud that Roccos insists on making corn tortillas for their tacos. Its authentic and very true to our food. Other places use machines to make them, or they buy their tortillas already made. Ours are made fresh „ just like they are in Mexico.Ž It makes a big difference in the qual-ity, Mrs. Lopez says. When you make them by hand from scratch, the crispy ones stay crispy and the soft ones stay soft. I know when I am eating one that isnt made from scratch.Ž The secret, she says, is the perfect mixing. The dough has to be very well mixed and massaged „ and you have to give it a lot of love and care.Ž At her house, her family might eat her leftovers tortillas in migas „ a breakfast dish of eggs, scrambled with torn torti-llas, and sometimes sausages or onion and tomatoes. But her favorite dish for the soft corn tortillas is fajitas „ with grilled steak. Mrs. Lopez has never has met Rocco Mandel, the restaurant partner and namesake, in person, saying, Im too busy making tortillas in the backŽ while he does the tequila dance on the bar. But shes a devotee of his kitchen. I feel like Im back home because Im making what I l ove,Ž she said. It doesnt feel like work at all.Ž Q JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Alfa Lopez uses a commercial mixer to blend the corn Only fresh tortillas are used for the tacos at Rocco’s Taco’s. Perfectly sized tortillas are cooked eight at a time. Alfa Lopez knows just how much flour and water to mix for perfect tortillas.

C2 healthy living APRIL 2012 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Chiropractic Care: A partner in good health G ood health happens by inten-tion. A very few people will enjoy good health no matter what they do. For everyone else, healthy behaviors are required to be well over the long term. We want good health to be seamless, that is, we dont want to be continually wondering whether were healthy or not. Some-times, of course, we need to pay close attention to whats happening. But for the most part wed like these consid-erations to be in the background. Were alive „ were healthy. Thats how wed like our relation-ship with our health to be. In order for good health to be in the background, we need to take actions on our own behalf in the foreground. These various actions are all related to the healthy lifestyle we want to have. Chiropractic care is an important component of healthy lifestyle. Regular chiropractic care helps us get the most value out of our other healthy lifestyle choices, including nutritious food, reg-ular vigorous exercise, and sufficient rest. Regular chiropractic care in the foreground helps us achieve the long-lasting good health we want to be expe-riencing in the background. The scientific concept of complexity is only a few decades old, but like many powerful ways of looking at the world it has spread rapidly throughout the public consciousness. Anyone who has watched even a couple of episodes of The Big Bang TheoryŽ would have heard multiple references to chaos the-ory, complex systems, and emergent phenomena. Remarkably, these very interesting topics from the fields of physics, math-ematics, chemistry, and biology have special importance for human health and wellness. Examples of complexity and chaos abound in the natural world. For exam-ple, weather systems are complex sys-tems, which is why weather is notoriously difficult to predict even in the short-term. And long-range weather forecasts are not much better than guesswork, because the basic structure of a weather pattern can change in an instant. Study of avalanches has helped to advance chaos theory. And the flock-ing behavior of birds, especially the well-studied starlings, represents ever-shifting o utcomes of a huge number of factors. An emergent phenomenon is one that cannot be predicted from studying the various parts that make up the whole. Emergent phenomena include flocking behavior, in which large flocks cre-ate beautiful, always varying, dynamic patterns in flight; the architecture of beehives; and the World Wide Web. Even human consciousness may, from a certain perspective, be considered an emergent phenomenon. From a health perspective, the relative wellness of any specific individual is an emergent phenomenon. For example, fighting off an infection is a dynamic process with many complex and chaotic interactions taking place before the final o utcome is determined. Were not aware of these specific processes per se. We are aware of how things are going, that is, the sum total of the cellular and subcellular activi-ties, based on how well or not well we feel. Looking at one key area as an example of flocking behavior, are our white blood cells being effective in combat-ing the infection? Is their behavior organized? Do they know where to go to battle the invading forces? Or is their behavior random and uncoordinated and are we not well and even sick as a result? Long-lasting good health emerges from a variety of inputs, including nutritional balance, regular exercise, and sufficient rest. These activities are known as healthy behaviors or healthy lifestyle choices. As the interactions are complex, we can never predict a specific o utcome. But we can base our choices on histori-cal data and an analysis of facts. This information tells us that the outcomes we want „ health and well-ness „ are likely to emerge from a set of healthy behaviors, such as healthy lifestyle choices taken consistently over the long-term.

We enjoy the simplicity of a shoe we can slip on and off at the beach, pool, even at work. We also are very picky and are always looking for that something new and different. Well, Juil footwear is just that. Juil is an up-and-coming startup company that is all about your wellbeing. Juil footwear connects you to the earth and brings your body back to its natural state of being through its Energy Flow Tech-nology. The soles of Juil footwear have copper conduc-tors that dis-charge and absorb the earths natural energies with every step you take, connecting you to the earth in a way that traditional footwear doesnt.Ž As their website says:Yoga restores your physical balance. Meditation restores your mental bal-ance. Juil sandals restore your natural balance of energy. Youll feel it from your heel and toes to the very core of your being. And more importantly, youll be connected to essential life forces, like youve never been before. The fundamental principle behind Juils footwear is that we live on a planet alive with energy and traditional foot-wear blocks us from it. Connecting (as Juil coins it) brings consciousness into our body and is essential for forming healthy boundar-ies. We feel more awake and alive by embracing our natural tendencies rath-er than denying them. When we are truly connected to the earth, we can be more dynamic, present and focused. Our attention is in the here and now. When we are disconnected, we are unstable and lose our center. We become scattered and also lose our ability to build up inner power. In turn, our natural energy and excitement gets diluted, dissipates, and we become inef-fectual in our lives. When we lose our connection, our attention strays and we become vague and insubstantial. Whether one observes a yogic view or not, there are other, even more sim-ple ways to experience connectedness. In its simplest form it is to be one with nature. Take a walk. Observe the animals and plants around you. Go outside and get a breath of fresh air. Tend to a gar-den. Everyone can connect one way or another. This connection is cultivated by any activity that directly connects you with the Earth. Juil sandals are the complete package and I mean that literally. Many footwear companies design great shoes and simply throw them in an uninspir-ing box. Juil understands the whole experience. From the very moment you see Juils box, its a wonderful experience. From the pull-tab to the colors and quality of the box, you can see the folks at Juil know what they are doing. Once opened, you notice a beautiful yoga mat bag wrapping the sandals. Juil footwear is not only stylish and comfortable „ it offers added function-ality.

With more than 300 clinics nationwide, we strive for the highest levels of patient satisfaction. State-of-the-art telephone and information systems mean youll always be greeted by a live person to assist you with all your needs. We offer a full range of hearing services, focusing on providing hear-ing aids and aural rehabilitation to mature adult and geriatric popula-tions. We have designed our clin-ics to let the hear-ing professionals focus on what they do best „ help-ing you hear bet-ter. Each clinic is outfitted with the best in diagnostic testing equipment and clinical sound rooms and offers the highest quality digital and wireless hearing aids. Our hearing professionals have extensive fitting experience, superi-or product training and have demon-strated a long-standing commitment to quality hearing care. They strive to be supportive and honest with our patients and to offer realistic expecta-tions. Nothing warms our heart more than seeing people hear what a differ-ence hearing aids can make. Right up front, we want to know the areas of your life where hearing would make the biggest, measurable differ-ence. We want you to genuinely experience the difference bet-ter hearing care can make. A hearing con-sultation with your All American Hearing Professional is a vital first step in the jour-ney to better hearing. We start with a medical history review, especially as it pertains to a fam-ily history of hearing loss. We look for the cause of the hearing loss, including work or recreational noise exposure, any medi-cations prescribed to cure past illness-es, and any visible structural damage to the hearing mechanism. Next, we perform a thorough otoscopic examination of the ear canal and eardrum. Potential problems include: XExcess earwax, which can build up and obstruct the ear canal, preventing sound from reaching the eardrum.XA foreign object or matter in the ear canal.XAny anomalies, such as perforation of the eardrum or fluid buildup in the middle ear will require a referral for medical attention. Next, we perform an audiometric threshold test using state-of-the-science equipment to determine the nature and extent of the hearing loss. This test uses pure tone sound signals at varied loud-ness levels and frequencies. Then we read the patient a word list to test speech understanding. The same word list is used after hearing aids are fitted to ascertain the potential improvement in speech understanding when amplification is used. Finally, we document the results on an audiogram that provides a pictureŽ of the patients hearing. The hearing professional then carefully explains the results to the patient, suggests the best course of action to treat the prob-lem, and previews any potential dif-ficulties you can expect if the hearing loss isnt treated. Travelers and snowbirdsŽ will also appreciate our national care system. You can depend on a network of quali-fied experts to continue offering you the same level of care you receive locally. At All American Hearing, tech-nology and compassion complement each other. Q Dr. Mel GrantAUDIOLOGY & SPEECH PATHOLOGY INC.(561)


C6 healthy living APRIL 2012 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Downtown at the Gardens11701 Lake Victoria Gardens AveSuite 7104, Palm Beach Gardens 561.721.3600 A variety of options available for treating gallbladder ailments B ecause fat cannot be dissolved in water, the body has devel-oped a special system for its digestion and that aids in absorption through the intestinal wall. Its called the gallbladder. Bile is an essential factor in this, since it contains substances that allow fats to be emulsified. It also stimulates the secre-tion of an enzyme concerned with the breakdown of fats. Bile is secreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder until needed. When fat is eaten, this stimulates the gallbladder to contract and bile flows down the cystic duct, into the common bile duct and through the ampulla of Vater into the intestine. As well as acting as a storage vessel, the gallbladder concentrates the bile within it by removing water through its wall. Thus, if the gallbladder is removed, although bile still flows into the intestine from the liver, fat digestion may be less efficient because the bile is not concen-trated. Q Gallstones (Cholelithiasis) „ The most common disorder of the biliary tract (gallbladder and bile ducts) are gallstones. Why and how gallstones form is not fully understood, but it is thought that in some cases an abnormality in func-tion causes the gallbladder to remove an excessive amount of water from the bile so that some of its constituents can no longer remain in solution. Gallstones occur very frequently in developed countries and may be associat-ed with eating a diet that is high in fat and refined carbohydrates and low in fiber. As many as 10 to 20 percent of the U.S. population over the age of 40 have gall-stones, but only in a minority do symptoms occur. If gallstones are found by chance on an X-ray taken for some other reason it is standard practice to leave them alone if they are causing no symptoms, since the risk of developing problems is slightly less than the risk from a major operation. However, if a patient with asymptomatic gallstones is having an abdominal opera-tion for another reason, the gallbladder may be removed at the same time. The problems that gallstones can give rise to are various and include chole-cystitis (inflammation of the gallblad-der), choledocholithiasis (gallstones in the common bile duct), and cholangitis (infection of the bile ducts), pancreatitis, and gallstone ileus (obstruction of the intestines by a gallstone). Q Chronic cholecystitis (Billary colic) „ The majority of patients with gallstone symptoms suffer from chronic cholecystitis. The attacks are caused by a stone becoming stuck either in the junction of the gallblad-der and the bile duct or in the duct itself. The muscle in the wall of both gallbladder and duct contracts in an effort to move the stone and this produces intense pain usually felt under the ribs on the right-hand side of the abdomen. However, the pain may also be felt under the V of the ribs or may extend right across the abdomen and spread around to the back, below the right shoulder blade. The patient may vomit and is usually restless. After several hours, the stone either falls back into the gallbladder or, by virtue of the muscle contractions, is passed down the bile duct and into the intestine. Some patients suffer from a constant dull ache in the upper abdomen and many complain of discomfort and flatulence after eating a fatty meal. Q Acute cholecystitis „ Twenty percent of those who develop gallbladder symptoms suffer from this condition, which most frequently affects women between the ages of 20 and 40. Like chronic cholecystitis, it is caused by a stone becoming jammed either in the junction of the gallbladder and duct or in the duct itself, and many patients have previously suffered from binary colic, indigestion or flatulence. The pain of acute cholecystitis stems from inflammation that is probably caused at first by the chemicals in the bile. However, a bacterial infection then supervenes in 50 percent or more of cases. The pain comes on suddenly and is severe and constant. It is felt across the right and central parts of the upper abdomen and under the right shoulder blade. The patient usually vomits and is quite ill and feverish. If the common bile duct becomes swollen, slight jaundice may occur as bile from the liver is prevented from passing into the intestine and enters the bloodstream instead. Q Cholecystectomy: Removal of the gallbladder „ There are several methods of dealing with gallstones and the gastrointestinal surgeons are experts in choosing the correct treatment for an individual patient. When symptoms from gallstones occur, removal of the gallbladder is the best approach in most cases. Currently, the most commonly performed operation is called laparoscop-ic cholecystectomy and is designed to remove the gallbladder as easily and safe-ly as possible. Q COURTESY ILLUSTRATION S pinning, also known as cardio cycling, hit the fitness scene in the late 1980s. It was devel-oped by an ultra-endurance cyclist who created first indoor cycling bike so he could keep training while he stayed home with his pregnant wife. Today, most gyms have group cycling classes that are offered on a regular basis. With spin classes, you can reach your fitness goals without having to rely on cooperation from the outdoor weather „ and its a low-impact exer-cise thats easy on knee, hip and foot joints. Because you stay in one place on the stationary bike, little coordination is needed, and the five basic movements of the class are easy to learn. The class is set to upbeat, motivating music, and the instructor guides par-ticipants through routines that simulate actual road conditions and terrain. You even can customize your routine by changing your pedaling speed or adjusting the resistance if you start to feel tired or want to challenge your-self. Participants set goals based on his or her own heart rate, which can be measured by hand or by using a heart rate monitor. Some participants choose to maintain a moderate, aerobic intensity level, while others drive their heart rates higher in intervals of anaerobic activity. Classes typically last for 45 to 60 minutes and incorporate endurance (keeping the heart rate in the aerobic zone), strength (focusing on building and toning muscle) and interval (heart rate is raised and then allowed to recov-er several times through intervals). In an average class, expect to burn up to a whopping 1,000 calories in an hour. And spinning is an excellent way to tone both front and outer thighs, to strengthen core muscles and to help build cardiovascular endurance. To make your class more comfortable and enjoyable, you can visit Bicy-cle Center to purchase gel seat pads or padded shorts to help with saddle pain and numbness, which many people new to spinning experience. As you get more experienced, you may want to try spin shoes,Ž designed with threaded holes in the bottom where a piece called a cleat can be screwed into the bottom of the shoe. The cleat attaches to the bike pedal to prevent the foot from sliding off, so spinners can go faster and pedal more efficiently. Q Take a spin to burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour

Of the approximately 50 percent of marriages that do not end in divorce, there is a reasonable number of couples who are not happy in their marriages. The reality is that most mar-riages are not the profoundly loving and fulfilling part-nerships that many expect them to be. After 14 years of practicing family law in South Flor-ida I believe that I have isolated the primary culprit in the breakdown of marriages, and the culprit is simply unrealistic expec-tations. While almost everyone has reasons for getting married, they are seldom a cohesive joint vision for the future. In order to assist my clients in managing the emotional, psychological and practical aspects of a divorce proceed-ing, I have broken down the divorce process into four stages. It is important to note that the five stages of divorce outlined below are exclusively from a divorce lawyers perspective and not intended to represent the opinion or information available through a mental health professional. The four stages of divorce are as follows:1. ContemplationThe harm suffered by families in a divorce usually begins long before a divorce action actually filed. Most often the acrimony, loss of trust, and most importantly loss of communica-tion begin long before divorce. The identification of when the breakdown of a marriage began to occur is sometimes helpful in allowing a person to face and confront the reality of their situation. 2. Action The antidotes to suspicion and fear are action and information. In the divorce world this consists of memori-alizing your position in writing to the court, and getting information in the way of documents, testimony and legal research. During the action stage a client who has been in denial about a divorce, or someone who has been paralyzed with either anger or grief is finally able to begin working on something tangible which in turn assists with the gradual perception of reality.3. AcceptanceDivorce cases often are mediated early in the case to either address press-ing temporary issues, or in an attempt to settle the case prior to spending substantial amounts of time, effort and money. It is interesting that many cases do not settle despite relatively simple issues. A common explanation is that one, or both, parties have not yet been able to accept their situation. Acceptance is a neces-sary component of moving forward.4. Vision It is important to have a clear vision of what your life will be like after divorce. I discuss this with my clients during the initial consultation. This conversa-tion or thought process should begin as soon as possible, and usually starts after acceptance. Visualizing the next chapter in ones life is incredibly important in the con-text of divorce. It is important to realize that change may be good, and that each person has an opportunity to lead the life that they choose. Q Kenneth A.

C8 healthy living APRIL 2012 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYI shouldve known. And in those rare moments when I was honest with myself, I did know: That ugly red blotch Id seen for years on the lower part of my right shin was cancer. Oh, it was easy enough to fool myself for a while. Skin cancers didnt look like that, right? They were moles that had changed, had darkened in color or bloomed into several colors, they were asymmetrical. And they were larger than a pencil eraser, werent they? This blotch was only slightly raised and sort of symmetrical and it hadnt changed . um, much. And each of its two seg-ments was smaller than a pencil eraser. Besides, that terrifying diagnosis couldnt mean me, could it? The damn thing didnt start bleeding until after I moved back to Florida, almost two years ago, which seemed somehow fitting. I grew up in the Sun-shine State, so even though I was never an avid beachgoer, maybe the years of sun exposure finally had caught up with me, Maybe, maybe not. Florida actually has a lower rate of skin cancer and skin-cancer-related deaths, accord-ing to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) than many other states, includ-ing Utah, Delaware, Oregon and New Jersey. Interesting, yes, but this . this THING was bleeding and I needed to deal with it. My primary doctor examined my leg, nodding that, yes, that blotch did look suspicious. Basal cell carcinoma, she thought: the least dangerous form of skin cancer. She did a biopsy, prom-ising to call as soon as the results came back. On our ride home, my husband held my hand, squeezing it reassuringly from time to time. I wanted to be reas-sured. I tried to be reassured. But I wasnt. Overall, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with more than a million Amer-icans diagnosed every year; 10,000 people die of it annually. According to the American Cancer Society, about eight out of 10 skin can-cers are basal cell carcinomas, which tend to be slow-growing and unlikely to spread to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body. Left untreated, however, it can invade bone or other tissues beneath the skin „ and as many as half of those who have had it will develop a new skin cancer within five years. Squamous cell carcinomas, a more aggressive form, account for about two of 10 skin cancers and are more likely to spread, though that is still uncommon. Melanomas are the most deadly form of skin cancer, responsible for about 75 percent of all skin-cancer deaths. Knowing the possibilities, I took my bandaged leg home to wait. And worry. Did she really believe it was basal cell, or was she just trying to hold my panic at bay for a few days? Three days filled with such thoughts passed before my cell phone rang „ Doctor asked me to call and tell you . .Ž „ and I could breathe again. The biopsy had confirmed her diagnosis: basal cell carcinoma. Next stop, two weeks later, was the Abacoa office of dermatologist Peter Vitulli, to whom I was referred. Dr. Vitullis office was crowded. One patient wore a gauze patch on his cheek, anothers upper arm was encircled in bandaging. I waited until my name was called, then followed the doctors assistant down a hall and into an examining room, where he motioned to an over-sized chair. I was to have a Mohs pro-cedure, so named for Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, who developed the technique in the 1930s. (The procedure was updated a number of times and became widely used in the 1990s.) Anytime you have cancer surgery, you have a number of surgical options,Ž says Dr. Vitulli in a phone interview, recalling my August 2010 visit. There are some topical medi-cations used for superficial cancers. Youre looking at a cure rate of maybe in the 70-percent range for five years. That wasnt good enough for me. Also, your defect was too large, and the larg-er the tumor, the deeper it goes.Ž There were other treatment possibilities, including a scraping-and-burning technique, radiation or excision (cut-ting it out), all with cure rates around 90 percent, but Dr. Vitulli nixed all of those possibilities for my particular case. My cancer was below the knee, an area slow to heal because of poor circulation. The Mohs technique, with a 99 percent cure rate, would be best, he said. In the exam room, an assistant elevated my leg and gave me a local anesthetic „ a Lidocaine injection „ to numb the site before surgery. The procedure itself is done step-bystep „ really, slice-by-slice. The biopsy had already removed the visible tumor. In slicing deeper, Dr. Vitullo sought to remove every trace of cancer cells, which meant also taking a thin layer of the skin surrounding the biopsy site. Each layer of removed tissue is pre-pared, placed under a microscope and examined by the surgeon. His assistant sent me back to the waiting room, summoning me back (along with my very patient husband, who was allowed to be present dur-ing the procedure) for the verdict: Dr. Vitullo would take another layer of tissue. You do that until the cancer cells are all out,Ž he said on the phone, or until you determine that its too large to handle in an out-patient setting.Ž Fortunately for me, that was not the case. He recalled a 2004 Mohs proce-dure hed done „ a basal cell carci-noma on a womans nose, cheek and lip „ that required 17 stages, a surgery that began at 8 a.m. and lasted until 7:30 p.m. The majority of Mohs surger-ies involve one, two or three stages. I spent another half-hour in the outer office. Back in the procedure room, Dr. Vitullo asked if the Lidocaine was still working. It was. He took a third slice of tissue, and I retreated to the waiting room once again, the final time. My surgery, he recalls, was fairly routine.Ž He described the options for closing the wound: He could do nothing and let it heal on its own. Or he could pull the edges of the wound together and stitch them, the course he advised. Allowing the wound to remain open would invite an increased risk of bleed-ing and infection and take considerably longer to heal, as much as three to six months. So he stitched, and I stared unhappily at the Frankenstein-like wound, lumpy and held together with black thread. He bandaged the site, warned me about the several days of pain ahead and advised that I spend about two weeks lying down, leg elevated. Two weeks!Ž I squawked. I cant.Ž He explained the reasons for immobility: Standing and walking put pres-sure on the leg. The stitches could tear loose. The site could open and bleed. Keeping my leg elevated while sleeping was hardest; my leg propped up with pillows, I forced myself to stay in one position all night. For three nights. After that, with caution, I walked a bit, even managing the stairs (we live on the second floor), wincing with each step on the right leg. It was, I knew, against Dr. Vitullos advice, but I told myself that moving around was in the service of my mental health. And I was lucky: My two-week checkup, during which he removed the stitches, showed no harm done. The wound site remained red and lumpy and ugly for several months. It is now a barely visible, smooth pink oval, about postage-stamp size. On the phone, I confessed my transgression. We tell patients a lot of things,Ž the doctor said, laughing. They listen to maybe half of it.Ž Q Screening is key to curing skin cancer TIPS FOR AVOIDINGSKIN CANCER 1. Seek shade, especially during midday hours. 2. Wear clothing to protect exposed skin. If long sleeves and slacks aren’t always practical, at least wear a beach cover-up. Darker colors may offer greater UV (ultraviolet) protection than lighter ones.3. Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade the face, head, ears, and neck.4. Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block as close to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays as possible.5. Use sunscreen with sun protective factor (SPF) 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB protection.6. Avoid indoor tanning. Using a tanning bed, booth or sunlamp has been linked with skin cancers, including the deadly melanoma.Source: The Centers for Disease Control P BY MARY JANE


4755 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens (561) 799-05559186 Glades Road, Boca Lyons Plaza (561) 477-4774 Lic. #HS8984 healthy living APRIL 2012 C9 D id you know that skin cancer is the most common form of can-cer in the United States with more than 3 million non melanoma skin cancers diagnosed annually? In fact, there are more new cases of skin cancers than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers combined. One in five people in this country will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. The three most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. The rate of melanoma cases in the United States has increased for the last 30 years. Living in South Florida, you should be aware of the risk factors, the signs of skin can-cer and treatment options. Risk factors for developing any of these skin cancers include: light or fair skin, blue eyes, blonde or red hair, a history of exces-sive sun exposure or sunburns, use of tanning beds and a past history of skin cancer. Mela-nomas major risk factors include a personal or family history of melanoma and the presence of an atypical mole, or more than 50 moles on your body. There are also rare genetic disorders that make some people prone to skin cancers. Can we prevent skin cancers? The answer is yes. Avoid midday sun, use sunscreen with an SPF factor of 15 or higher, and avoid sunbathing and indoor tanning. Protect your eyes with sun-glasses and wear sun protective cloth-ing. See a dermatologist at least once a year for a thorough skin examination. Check your own skin on a regular basis and note any changes in moles, as well as skin growths and any new abnormali-ties. If something suspicious is found, a biopsy should be performed and the growth will be examined under a micro-scope to determine if cancer is present. Early stage basal and squamous cell cancers can be treated in most cases by a surgical excision, freezing, scraping or with radiation therapy. Few people real-ize that radiation therapy has been used to treat skin cancers for decades and is often an overlooked treatment option for basal or squamous cell cancers. Melanomas are usually treated with surgery and sometimes with the addi-tion of radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Sometimes, for deep melanomas, the local lymph nodes must be surgically sampled and removed. There are new kinds of chemotherapy agents and new drugs on the horizon. For patients with basal or squamous cell cancers who wish to avoid surgery, superficial electron beam radiation therapy may be an option. This type of non-invasive treatment is approved by Medicare and insurance carriers, and offers excellent clinical and cosmetic results for cancers found on the face, including the nose, ears, and eyelids or extremities … often in places where surgery could leave cosmetic changes. A dedicated and experienced team is necessary to deliver targeted electron beam radiation therapy to destroy can-cer cells while shielding normal tissue. The daily treatment is painless, takes a few minutes each day, does not require any anesthesia or change in medica-tions. If you have been diagnosed with skin cancer make certain you discuss all of your treatment options with your doctor or call Jupiter Medical Centers Radiation Oncology Department.

E yeglasses are not created equal. You can choose from hundreds of variations and combina-tions of eyeglass lens materials, designs and treatments. The base materials used in lenses can vary from thick hard plastic, to thin monomers and polymers. Each of these materials has unique benefits that must be selected carefully to match the frame, lens design and lens treatment properly. Here are two great options: Q Trivex is a lens material that gives crisp, clear vision, lightweight comfort and impact protection. Its a perfect material for active sports enthusiasts whose lifestyles demand a strong yet lightweight material without compromising visual clarity.Q1.74 High Index is the thinnest plastic lens material produced. This material is ideal for those who want thin lenses with ultra-clear vision. The design of your lens (single vision, bifocal, progressive, etc.) is another impor-tant component that will determine how your eyeglasses will function. For exam-ple, with a single-vision design, a patient requiring correction for both distance and near vision (a condition known as presby-opia) will only be able to see to drive or to read, but not both. A progressive lens design would allow that same person to see at any distance. This is primarily based on the eyeglass pre-scription; however, a licensed optician can use that prescription along with your per-sonal needs to select a customized design. Lenses can also receive numerous treatments, such anti-reflective or ultraviolet protection. Anti-reflective treatments can dramatically improve the clarity of vision, particularly in low-light environments. Be careful, though, because inexpensive anti-reflective coatingsŽ that are sold at some discount chains are inferior and can actually impair visual clarity after just a few months because they scratch easily or become foggy. Ultraviolet treatments filter the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays, which can cause eye damage including cataracts and macular degeneration, both of which can lead to vision loss. In fact, certain lens materials actually absorb harmful rays without having to add any treatment at all. Make sure your eye-care professional chooses your lens material, design and treatments carefully to meet your needs, or you could end up with poor vision results, or even vision loss.
