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 JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIf ever a brace of novels better suited to Independence Day burst gloriously into my life, I dont recall the occasion. Novels written by friends of mine, too, which is why this is a recommendation, not a review: I recommend you go buy them immediately at or elsewhere (Barnes & Noble might do). Look for Robert Hilliard (PhillipaŽ) and Thomas Fox Averill (RodeŽ). Then watch your life lift and soar. There have been other stories of characters wrestling to be free „ Born on the Fourth of July,Ž for example, by Ron Kovic. But that was an autobiography later fictionalized as an Oliver Stone movie, a story assaulted by irony. Mr. Kovic was born on July 4, 1946, then clapped into the ball-and-chain nightmare of Vietnam, where he was ambushed, shot, paralyzed from the chest down and per-manently imprisoned in a wheelchair. The two Marines who saved him for that fate were both killed, one on the spot and the other later in the day. The novels that I recommend here, however, are not ironic. Instead, theyre ferocious, charming, arguably optimis-tic, and frequently terrifying. Robert Hilliards PhillipaŽ is a lucent and harrowing exploration of German Jews and gentiles during the Third Reich. Two principal characters, Phil-lipa and Walter, struggle to survive their own comfort, their own weaknesses, and the banal and sometimes vicious cowardice of colleagues, friends and countrymen, while grasping for the sus-taining freedom of l ove, both physical and mental. Thomas Fox Averills Rode,Ž meanwhile „ spare and lyrical „ describes Robert Johnsons odyssey for love on a long, lean, green-eyed, sun-hued stud, from Tennessee through Arkansas and Texas, then into Mexico and back. He weaves his tale in the colorful cloth of the West, from the thin frame and slender thread of a vibrant old Jimmy Driftwood ballad, Tennessee Stud.Ž Both novels are richly nuanced throw-downs. They challenge what I think of as evil: the dark caste within some humans that would drown the freedom-loving soul of Independence Day with no more thought than a psy-chopath drowns a puppy. Against that reality stand two very different men and two very different stories „ but both champions of action in the face of tyranny, no matter how large and intimidating, no matter how small or banal, and no matter where: from eastern Arkansas to Auschwitz. I could tell you more about the books „ about the rare ability of both authors to paint complex women, for exam-ple „ but others have done so. Philip Jason feted PhillipaŽ in the July 7, 2010 issue of the Fort Myers Florida Weekly, and reviews of RodeŽ appear at, and else-where online. Instead, let me tell you briefly what I know about these extraordi-nary writers. Dr. Hilliard is professor emeri-tus from Emer-son College in Boston, author of more than 30 books and the former Chief of Public Broadcasting for the Federal Communications Commission. Mr. Averill, whose novel won the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museums award for Best Western Novel of 2011 (Charles Portis, Cormac McCarthy, Larry McMurty and Barba-ra Kingsolver number among previous winners), teaches English literature and creative writing at Washburn Univer-sity in his hometown, Topeka, Kansas. I met Tom when I was 18 and he was much older, maybe 22 or so. With Eva Tarnower, who had known him since childhood, we saddled our horses and rode halfway across Kansas. Tom kept a guitar braced across the pommel of his saddle, and I remember us all singing Tennessee StudŽ „ at least until that tough little pony devel-oped a saddle sore. Then we carried on sans saddle and guitar, riding bareback in rotation. We rode out of the hilly eastern prairie around Law-rence, crossed the Potawatomi Indian Reserva-tion near May-etta, and finally reached a family farm maintained by a friend of ours in north central Kansas. For Tom, that little trip was the least of it. He knows what hes talking about. I met Robert on the other end of my adult life, earlier this year at a Naples Philharmonic Center exhibit of 100 Associated Press photographs of World War II. Ive written about him before. Coming to know him both in short letters and in person has been a para-mount gift of my later years. Born and raised in an immigrant Jewish family in New York City, Robert somehow survived the Battle of the Bulge (not intact, however). Then, when he was much older „ 19 „ he and an Army friend saved roughly 10,000 Jewish refugees who had been freed from concentration camps and then abandoned by American occupa-tion forces. He knows what hes talking about, too, like Tom Averill. And so do I (sometimes). If you like to read, do yourself a favor and try these two stories.

Appearing in The New York Times, it explains why President Barack Obama personally approves drone strikes: A student of writings on war by St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, he believes that he should take moral responsibility for such actions.Ž Now, who would know that President Obama is a student of St. Augustine and St. Aquinas „ or to put a finer point on it, that President Obama considers himself a student of St. Augustine and St. Aquinas? Its hard to see the presi-dent interrupting deliberations with his generals and top intelligence officials to parse the finer points of great Christian authors from centuries ago. And who would take care to tell a reporter that the presidents wide-ranging reading of works dating from the fifth and 13th centuries informs his work as com-mander-in-chief? The detail reeks of the sycophancy of a White House insider who wants his boss to get credit for all of his prodigious talents and enviable quali-ties. Leaks in Washington are nothing new, and they have many purposes „ to undercut rivals, to float prelimi-nary proposals, to blow the whistle on potential wrongdoing. The Obama national-security leaks are overwhelm-ingly the product of vanity. They show off the presidents exquisitely thought-ful tough-mindedness and, above all, his killer instinct. In its report about Obamas kill list,Ž The New York Times cited three dozen of his current and former advis-ers.Ž Another Times story on cyberattacks on Irans nuclear program relied on officials involved in the program.Ž In one tenseŽ meeting described by the Times, the president asked whether the Stuxnet computer worm should be shut down after it escaped into the wider world, according to members of the presidents national security team who were in the room.Ž The dog that doesnt bark in the articles is the outraged dissenter, the leaker whos talking because he cant bear to be associated with a government that assassinates people from on high or launches cyberwarfare against anoth-er sovereign country. When The New York Times revealed the Bush administrations National Security Agency spying program back in 2005, it talked to officials who were concerned about the operations legality and oversight.Ž The officials quoted in the Obama articles, in contrast, are practically bragging. In his new book on Obamas nationalsecurity policy, Times reporter David Sanger recounts then-Defense Sec-retary Bob Gates going into National Security Adviser Tom Donilons office in the wake of leaks about the bin Laden raid and suggesting a new communica-tions strategy: Shut the f--up.Ž Gates wasnt complaining about attacks on the administration from within „ often the cause of tensions in other administra-tions „ but of excessive self-glorifi-cation revealing sensitive operational details. The political imperative behind the leaks is demonstrating President Obamas toughness. But administrations also inevitably take on something of the character of the man leading them. No wonder that telling tales out of school about its own prowess is a failing of a team led by a supremely self-impressed man who has already written two mem-oirs. If he must boast about his cold-blooded exploits, he should save it for his third. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.A movement built by dreamersUndocumented immigrants in the United States number around 12 million people, a group larger than the popula-tions of most countries on the planet. Among those are as many as 800,000 young people who are now most likely eligible for limited legal status, thanks to executive action taken last week by President Barack Obama. In a Rose Garden speech, Obama said that he and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano we are working to mend our nations immigration policy, to make it more fair, more efficient and more just „ specifically for certain young people sometimes called Dreamers.Ž Behind the speech was a movement for social change, built by millions, each with their own story. The DreamersŽ are those who are here without legal documentation, often derogatively referred to as illegals,Ž but who came to this country as children, in some cases as infants. As he said in his speech: These are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, theyre friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.Ž For 10 years, people have pushed for an act of Congress to give these young people legal status, through a bill called the DREAM Act, short for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. People in the movement dont consider themselves alien.Ž They call them-selves undocumented Americans.Ž One of those who stands to directly ben-efit from the White Houses decision is Lorella Praeli, from New Haven, Conn., a member of the United We Dream national coordinating committee. She fought for passage of the Connecticut version of the DREAM Act. The bill was signed into law last year, making undocumented students eligible for in-state tuition at state colleges. Praeli is a 2011 graduate of Quinnipiac University, which she attended on a scholarship. I had a car accident when I was 2 and a half, which resulted in the amputation of my right leg,Ž she explained. My fam-ily and I sought treatment at Shriners Hospital. So for many years, we spent time between Peru and Tampa, Fla., which is where the hospital is. When I was 10, my family decided to move to Connecticut. Thats how I ended up here.Ž She went on, I didnt know I was undocumented until toward the end of my high-school career, applying to colleges. ... You need to fill out FAFSA [Free Application for Federal Student Aid], and you need a Social Security number. That was kind of my introduc-tion to what being undocumented really meant and to start to internalize what it meant to be undocumented, feeling very isolated.Ž She was invited by the New Haven mayors office to speak at a press con-ference. She recalled: I didnt have anything prepared. I got up, and I said something like I am done standing on the sidelines. And that was my coming out, very publicly. And that, I think, just changed my life for the better.Ž They call them coming outŽ stories. Another young immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, said it was, for him, less daunt-ing to come out as a gay teenager than to come out as an undocumented Ameri-can. He came from the Philippines at the age of 12 to stay with his grandpar-ents in California. He didnt learn that he was illegalŽ until he applied for his driving permit at the age of 16. Vargas ultimately became a reporter at The Washington Post. There he was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007. By 2011, after hiding his immi-gration status for almost 15 years, Vargas came outŽ in a New York Times Sunday Magazine article. He explained what prompted his decision: Watching United We Dream and watching these four activists from Miami, (who) walked from Miami to Washington, D.C., to fight for the DREAM Act, the Trail of Dreams. I felt like a coward, and I felt accountable. And thats when I decided that, you know what? Ive got to go do this.Ž Movements „ whether they are civil rights, gay rights or immigration rights „ are built on a foundation of innumer-able small acts of courage. Like the four undocumented students who marched from Miami to D.C., or those who sat in at four of Obamas campaign offices around the country, immediately before his announcement last week (risking arrest, and thus, potentially, deportation), these Dream-ersŽ are committed, and organizing. As the anthropologist Margaret Mead said: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world; indeed, its the only thing that ever has.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier.Ž

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Safe on the Fourth of JulyMedications, special shirts may calm pets during fireworks BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIf theres one holiday thats not popular at U.S. shelters and veterinary emergency hos-pitals, its probably the Fourth of July. Thats because the fireworks and other celebrations of this midsummer bash trigger pet care tragedies „ a flow of lost pets, sick pets and injured pets. Loud noises startle and distress many pets, with their supersensitive hearing. Scared pets have been known to jump out of apartment windows, leap over or dig under fences, or chew their skin until its raw. They may also bolt out an open door to become lost and never found, or hit by a car. Even the ones who just tremble in terror may be safe, but theyre miserable. Even calm pets may seize the opportunity offered by a holiday buffet to eat something they should not. While most of the danger is on the actual holiday, the noise and parties can continue for days, especially when the Fourth falls midweek, as it does this year. The best defense against Fourth of July problems is a good offense started weeks or months before summer. Professional trainers and behaviorists start socializing dogs and making every potentially negative experi-ence „ such as fireworks and thunder-storms „ into something rewarding. If a negative experience comes with tasty treats, then your pet is going to at least tolerate it, if not welcome it. This works best when started as a puppy, but dont give up hope if your dog is already an adult: New behaviors can be learned. One way to help your pet is to expose him or her to commercial recordings of thunderstorms or fireworks and play them at increasing volume. Play the recordings at low volume „ recognizing how acute a pets hearing is „ and give praise and treats. Its a party! As the volume and duration are increased during subsequent sessions, give him really tasty treats so he has the expec-tation of a repeat treat. Initially, play the recording for five minutes, eventually leav-ing it on during daily activities as normalŽ background noise. Thats fine for next year, but what about this years holiday? Provide pets with safe hiding spaces inside your home during the holiday fireworks or a storm. Dogs and cats who are comfortable in crates can find them a good place to ride out the noise, especially if the crate is put in a quiet, darkened part of the house. Some pets are so unhinged by noise that veterinary-prescribed medications are need-ed to keep them calm. Valium and Xanax (and their generic versions) are well-toler-ated by most pets, and many veterinarians are happy to provide you with a pre-holiday prescription. Remember to give the medica-tions as recommended „ they usually work best before the rockets red glare begins. And talk to your veterinarian about other calming techniques. Some alternative-care veterinar-ians may recommend the herbal product Rescue Remedy, while others can show you acupressure and massage techniques to keep pets calmer. Pet-supply retailers offer additional ways to calm your pet, such as with pressure shirts for animals, which work off the same principles that calm autistic children. The Thundershirt and The Anxiety Wrap are two such products for dogs and cats. The Calming Cap, which reduces sensory input, is another product meant to ease anxious pets. Finally, for dogs theres the Through a Dogs EarŽ series of music CDs that are clini-cally proven not to cover noise, but to use sound to calm canines. Make sure your pet isnt a casualty of Independence Day. If nothing else, keep your pet inside until the celebrations are over, and call your veterinarian for medication that can help ease the fear.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYhave turned 24 on August 19. She may have graduated from St. Leo University, where she earned a scholarship to play ball. She may have stuck with psychol-ogy, she may have changed her mind. She may be in love, or be a mommy, or be living single in New York City, like her friends. But now her friends wear her clothes. And even though her bedroom no longer looks the same, her mom and dad still have days where they expect her to walk through the door. Does it get any easier? No,Ž says Mrs. Buckley, answering the question she anticipates being asked, as the five-year anniversary approaches. She does this a lot, saying what those sitting across from her are scared to say. And considering all the graduations, the weddings and the babies, she says, This year has probably been the hardest one for me.Ž Theres not a place the Buckleys go that does not bring Amanda back „ the beach, the ballpark, their church, their home. They live without their daugh-ter by sharing stories of when they had her. And they go on by doing what they believe she would have done, or rather, what she would have wanted them to do. So they started a foundation and chose a name to match her demeanor and one of her most memorable attributes „ Give a Smile to a ChildŽ „ helping chil-dren and families struck by unforeseen tragedy. Beyond feeding and clothing children, the Buckleys say they keep Amanda alive by awarding scholarships to needing or deserving female athletes, young women taking their next step in life. They have awarded 15 scholarships thus far, they will award five more in July. And they will continue building their vision for the Amanda Buckley Memorial Field of Dreams, complete with practice fields, stadium seating, batting cages, all at the ballpark for Palm Beach Gardens Community High School, where Amanda played. The girls who play there now never met Amanda, but they know her. They wear her number on their wristbands. And when their coach tells them to be careful, to pay attention to what theyre doing, who theyre hanging out with, whats going on around them, he may not say Amandas name, but her name looms on the scoreboard and her influence can be felt. Palm Beach County detectives say Amanda Buckley did nothing wrong. They would like teenagers to see each decision as precious, as each decision holds a consequence. But beyond con-sequence, they say its hard to glean lessons from Amandas case, a case that stunned Palm Beach Gardens, as Aman-da Buckley stood for every daughter of every middle-class family living in any safe neighborhood, going to any public school, trying to excel at her sport. Her friends say her fate taught them to surround themselves with good people, taught them to cherish friendships, not to hold grudges but to forgive. They carry her with them as they go on to play college ball. And all are in awe of her parents „ how they can give so much, when so much was taken away. Her friends speak around her story by saying, after Amanda was taken from us,Ž or before we lost Amanda,Ž but theres no way to make it sound better: Amanda Buckley was murdered by Jason Shenfeld on July 19, 2007. She was 18. He was 26. The two knew each other but their relationship was unclear or unknown to Amandas friends and family at that time. He had a criminal record; multiple charges, including assaulting women. But those close to Amanda say she did not know enough to feel he was a danger. Two days after her murder, John Shen-feld found her body, raped and strangled, in his sons closet. The case never went to trial.

And though its sensitive to speak about Amanda, she says, I would love to see her name in print every day,Ž to see her name remembered, as Ms. Richstone sees her murder as an affront to every-thing good. The death penalty should be enforced sparingly, thoughtfully, conservatively, but there is no one, I think, who deserved it more than he did,Ž Ms. Richstone says of Mr. Shenfeld. She does not know where Amandas parents found their mercy or their grace to spare his life. She saw him as a sadist, a man who liked to beat up women and gave in to fits of rage. She wanted the case to go to court, she wanted to be in his face, a woman taking his power away. But when the Buckleys told her taking his life would not bring their daughter back, when they said, Amanda would not have wanted it this way,Ž Ms. Rich-stone said the state signed his plea „ four life sentences, no chance of parole „ stressing, We did it for them, not for him.Ž A man of faith, Mr. Buckley says, We are not the kind of folks who believe that we would have gained anything by hav-ing someone else killed.Ž He says he and his wife are still comfortable with their decision, nearly five years later. To this day, he still surprises Ms. Richstone with lunch, showing up at the courthouse with a sub. He tells her she reminds him of what Amanda would have been, a fighter. She tells him theres nothing he could have done. She cannot say Amandas murder was meant to be, but she feels her case was meant to be swift. Everything in that case played out perfect, as if there was the hand of something else behind it,Ž Ms. Richstone says. Im not religious, but I felt a guiding force „ Amanda, whoever, whatever „ the way everything happened, I believe there was a guiding hand.Ž For the first time publicly, the prosecutor reveals that she was going to make Mr. Shenfelds parents testify against him, no question about it. She will not speak to his previous arrest for the sex-ual assault of two other women, a case dropped for conflicts in evidence,Ž as it was not her case. But as the woman who went through Amanda Buckleys purse, reviewed her phone records and interviewed her friends, Ms. Richstone says, I would have loved to have known her.Ž She wants Amandas name in the newspaper because she wants people who did not know her to think about her, Then think about your daughter, your niece or your neighbor,Ž because as she sees it, Amanda Buckley was us.Ž And nothing brought Amanda Buckley more to life for her than sitting in her room, sitting on her bed, going through her pictures. Ms. Richstone first sat in Amandas room the day she first met, then hugged, the Buckleys. Amandas bed and furniture are still there, but her rooms not the way she left it. There are framed pictures of Amanda, but the collages she had of her and her friends on the wall have been boxed. Mrs. Buckley spent a couple of days trying to place those photographs in albums, but it was too hard to do just then, so those albums will have to wait. For a long time, Mrs. Buckley did not touch her daughters room. But as Amandas friends kept coming over, they would look at things and say, I remember this.Ž Mrs. Buckley found it helped her to say, Go ahead, take it.Ž They need their closure, too,Ž Mrs. Buck-ley says of Amandas friends. Theyre just things,Ž she says of what she gave away. And where Amanda is, is right here,Ž she says with her hand across her heart, next to the gold cross she wears with Amandas ashes in it. She kept her daughters back-to-back state championship rings. She drives her daughters blue Ford Escape. A lot I kept, a lot I gave,Ž she says. We all need a piece of her.Ž Caroline Torre was given Amandas St. Leos T-shirts. She grew up playing soft-ball with Amanda „ Caroline on first, Amanda on second. After graduating college with a degree in sports management, Caroline moved to New York City for a Major League Baseball internship. Not wanting to lose Amandas T-shirts, she left them back home with her special things. The last time she saw Amanda was on the night of their high school softball banquet. Amanda called Caroline on her way, asking her to please tell their coach she was going to be late. She had stopped to save a turtle in the middle of the road. After she passed away, turtles seem to be a sign for me. I like to think its her,Ž says Caroline, who saw a turtle cross the road right before her first fall tourna-ment in college. That day she played a doubleheader and went 4-for-5. Alright Amanda, I get it,Ž she remembers feeling, Thats my sign from you,Ž so she had a turtle tattooed on her right hip, because when she played first base, Amanda was always off my right hip.Ž She says its tough to tell Amandas story. She says you hear about these things, but they seem so unreal, they sound more like the news or a movie or a play. Its like her murder was acted out on a stage, and while Amandas no longer on that stage her loved ones are left in the audience. Living in New York, Caroline does not see turtles very often.

Right: The state’s online “predator flyer” for Shenfeld.Amandas birthday or the anniversary of her death, she asked Amanda for a sign, something to help her through those times. At church I saw a lady in an orange dress with turtles all over it,Ž Caroline says. Theres no way that was anything but a sign from Amanda, that dress was so hideous.Ž She wanted to make you laugh,Ž said the Buckleys, when she told them of her experience. The Buckleys have these moments, too. Moments when they cant help but look at one another and laugh and say, Amandas here.Ž When they talk about her, they light up and its as though you can see Amandas expressions on their faces. They swear they can still hear her laugh, but they cannot describe the sound of it, as if any attempt might diminish it. They are so brave,Ž Caroline says of the Buckleys. Amanda was their only child. Everything they did, they did around Amanda and her softball. It breaks my heart to think about them try-ing to figure out life without her.Ž The Buckleys see Amanda every day, pictures of her on their desks and refrigerator remind them of her and her absence. They see less and less writing on her Facebook page, less and less writing on her Legacy page, but they say thats a good thing. They say Amandas young friends need to move on, Amanda would not have wanted them mourning for her forever,Ž so less and less writing shows her friends are growing, and something about seeing her friends maturing makes the Buckleys happy. Mrs. Buckley has found solace through Compassionate Friends, a support group for family members grieving the loss of a child. Though her ache will never end, when shes with her Compassionate Friends, her ache feels shared. Mr. Buckley pours himself into Amandas Foundation and keeps giving to children in Amandas memory, saying, I dont dwell on why the Foundation came about, I focus on what the Foundation does.Ž Jason Shenfeld, inmate No. W20114 at Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle, declined a request to be interviewed. Public records of his work assignments show he spends his days as a houseman, sweeping, mopping, dust-ing, making beds, cleaning bathrooms and picking up trash. Discipline reports show he received 30 days confinement for an unauthorized beverage and anoth-er 15 days confinement for disobeying an order. The state would not release his visitors list, so as not to compromise the safety of anyone who may have visited him. There has been no communication between the Shenfelds and the Buck-leys, no expressed remorse. A visit to the north Palm Beach Gardens Shenfeld home, where Amanda was murdered, found cherub-like figurines on the lanai and window sh utters p ained petal pink. Diane Shenfeld, Jasons mother, answered a knock on the door. She said she no longer gets the paper, she does not watch the news and regarding her son, she has nothing to say. The Buckleys say they considered moving, trying to find that delicate bal-ance of wanting to remember but not always wanting to be reminded. Then Mrs. Buckley realized, This is where I feel most connected to her,Ž so they did not leave the home where Amanda grew up, a home less than two blocks away from Palm Beach Gardens Community High School. Detective John Cogburn says Amandas murder shook her neighborhood and shook her school, then rippled to all schools and neighborhoods throughout the city. He remembers coming home when he was investigating her case, com-ing home and saying thank you. He says the whole community said a silent thank you, a thank you for still having their children. He says Amanda lived a low-risk lifestyle, meaning as an athlete and a scholar, no one ever expected her to be the victim of such a crime. He says the public can better accept an unanticipated traffic accident, but when it came to Amanda, the public was numb. The dynamics around this case pretty much sent shock waves throughout the community,Ž he says. We all started to second-guess ourselves, the things we could be doing better, how we could keep our kids close to home, close to family.Ž He says there was nothing Amanda could have done to prevent what hap-pened from happening, Theres nothing to blame Amanda Buckley for at all.Ž He says he does not have any questions lingering from her case, This was a case where the bad guy was put away.Ž And what makes it so hard for the detective to impart lessons from this case: Nothing I saw in my investigation led me to believe Amanda did anything wrong.Ž She was a teenager. And its her youth and misfortune her high school softball coach cant help but think about, when he thinks about the influence he has over teenagers in her wake. Randy Jackson says he and Amanda joined the Lady Gators team at the same time, her freshman year was his first year as head coach. As a ballplayer, he describes her as feisty, she wanted to win, hated to lose and whatever it took for her team to win, she was willing to do. She wasnt very big, but she was a powerhouse. And she loved to play the game. Her tragedy did not change the way I coach,Ž he says. It changed the way I teach life lessons.Ž Now when he tells his girls to be careful, pay attention, be aware, hes speak-ing to girls who never met Amanda, but he need not say her name, they know her. She has a tribute locker in the Lady Gator locker room where her retired No. 4 jersey hangs. She has a memorial cubby in the dugout where a plaque reads, With us always.Ž And theres a poster-size picture of her above their locker room door „ shes poised, down and ready to receive a ground ball. Her heads up and her bodys square to the ball. Her knees are bent and her gloves out in front, as shes watching the ball roll into her glove. Her foots back, ready to throw, ever funda-mentally sound. We miss her,Ž Coach Jackson says. And he continues to pass out wrist-bands, embroidered with her number, to his freshmen coming in. Elizabeth Corrigan was a freshman pitcher when Amanda was a senior. Amanda called her Lizzy.Ž A trans-fer from Indian River State College to Florida State University, she wears her wristband still. You play the game for a different reason. You play the game and carry her with you,Ž she says of wearing her wrist-band. Its a different type of game when you go out there and youre playing for someone else. You have her wristband on, you represent her and her team and her family, Tory and Barbara.Ž The Buckleys gave Elizabeth one of Amandas Lady Gator travel jackets because as a pitcher, she needs to keep her arm warm. They also awarded her one of their foundation scholarships. Elizabeth says her money mainly went to food, which Amanda would have loved, as she was forever seen eating her sunflower seeds „ ranch flavored „ or sneaking pizza into the dugout. Besides her wristband, Elizabeth has an Amanda Buckley logo sticker on her car and she saved the flower pin her team wore to Amandas funeral. She also kept the big ceremonial check that was presented to her when she received her scholarship, because she says just seeing it, helps you live out her name, in every-thing you do.Ž Emily Roesch knows the honor. She grew up playing softball with Amanda. She played shortstop. Amanda called her Bootsie.Ž And she, too, received an Amanda Buckley scholarship. She says her scholarship went to savings. And as a graduate student at Boston University, she only touches it when she needs it. Emily remembers the phone call when she learned Amanda was gone. She was playing in a softball tournament in Fort Lauderdale. She was playing with her travel team, most of her Lady Gator teammates were there, playing on sepa-rate travel teams. But when she was on the phone with Mr. Buckley, she says somehow, Everybody from Gardens was there. I dont know how it happened, we were all just there,Ž finding out together. I dont remember playing after that. I really dont remember anything after that,Ž she says. Im pretty positive we got rained out.Ž She remembers thinking the rain felt appropriate. She says in the beginning, she wanted to know as much as possible. Now she doesnt want to look at it, the event that changed her former outlook on life, When youre young, you think youre going to live til youre old.Ž She is in awe of the Buckleys, how they can transmute something so awful into something good for so many. And she visits them when she goes home. The Buckleys say visits from Amandas friends are part of their healing. Their everyday a struggle, talking about their daughter lends some sense of reprieve. They are grateful to still have her dog, a pound puppy Amanda saved and named Kahlua. Mrs. Buckley says its one of those who-saved-who scenarios. She believes her daughter knew her mother would need this dog. They have found the strength to once again go to high school softball games. And though they were good at it before, they make it a point to look at each other each morning and really say, Good morning.Ž They make it a point to say, I love you,Ž before they go. They do not dwell on the fact that their daughter will never play college ball or never be married or that they will never have a grandchild, for as they say, they must get down the road. Its not the end. Its not like were never going to see her again. Knowing in our hearts, when we pass, shes going to be there waiting for us,Ž Mr. Buck-ley says, pointing ab ove, Thats more important than anything weve done, knowing we are going to see her again.Ž For the Buckleys believe their daughter did more than graduate, she ascend-ed.

The cries outside the courtroom were jubilant, but the community has been left to sort out the aftermath of the har-rowing testimony of the violated young men, and to make sense of the behavior of the respected adults who should have acted, but chose instead to look the other way. Pennsylv ania State University President Rodney Erickson issued a state-ment to the public: The legal process has spoken and we have tremendous respect for the men who came forward to tell their stories publicly. No verdict can undo the pain and suffering caused by Mr. Sandusky, but we hope this judg-ment helps the victims and their fami-lies along their path to healing.Ž While the statement is certainly an acknowledgement from the university, it does nothing to speak to the enor-mous courage it took for these men to tell their stories of humiliation and relive their pain in a public forum. Most of us certainly would have understood if they had chosen to keep quiet „ they had certainly endured enough. However, remaining silent in the face of immorality compromises our personal integrity. Speaking up for what we believe in can be an important step in building our self-respect and confidence. These men displayed what has been called moral courage: the ability to distinguish between right and wrong and to stay firm to ones convictions, even in the face of public contempt or criticism. But how do we understand the behavior of those who chose to look the other way? The answers are not clear-cut, and depend largely on the motives and char-acters of the individuals involved. Most obvious are the interests of the Penn State administration, whose objectives were to save face and maintain the repu-tation and prestige of the university. And, of course, public scandals notori-ously cost institutions countless mil-lions in donations and litigation. But, as they say, in the long run the cover-up is worse than the crime.Ž The universitys failure to take proactive steps to stop Sandusky not only paved the way for further abuse to fur-ther unsuspecting victims, but stained its reputation and liability to epic pro-portions. The Penn State community looked to its leaders to serve as their moral compass and to set the bar to the highest ethical standards. And, sadly, there were others, who were not in authority at Penn State who also kept quiet „ a janitor, a gradu-ate student and perhaps other athletes. Why didnt they go to the authori-ties? We understand that their jobs and reputations might have been at risk. But why did they stand by when they knew that egregious crimes were being com-mitted? And to expand the discussion further, why do people stand by in other situations as they watch others being bullied, or mistreated, without saying a word or acting? The bystander is a modern archetype, from the Holocaust to the genocide in Rwanda to the current environmental crisis,Ž says Charles Garfield, a clinical professor of psychology at the Univer-sity of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, who has been speaking out on the psychological differences between bystanders and people who display moral courage. Why,Ž asked Garfield, do some people respond to these crises while others dont?Ž He and other researchers have spent many years trying to answer this ques-tion. They conclude that most of us have the potential to fall into one or the other of these categories. Sometimes, we may show a very different charac-teristic, depending on the particulars of the situation. The famous case in 1964 of Kitty Genovese, where many neighbors wit-nessed her savage murder without intervening or calling the authorities, horrified the world and prompted sev-eral researchers to seek an explanation. Two psychologists, John Darley and Bibb Latane, concluded that when there is a diffusion of responsibility,Ž bystanders often fail to help the victim because they feel less personal respon-sibility and therefore count on others to act. In the Penn State case, some of the witnesses may have convinced them-selves they were off the hook from taking any actionŽ because they had notified a higher up in the chain of command. Ervin Staub, a Jewish psychologist who survived the Holocaust because his familys Christian housekeeper risked her life to shelter him and his sister, spent his career inspired to understand the personal qualities held by coura-geous heroes like his savior. His con-clusions showed that these individuals express a heightened concern for the welfare of others, greater social respon-sibility and a commitment to moral values. Samuel Oliner, another Holocaust survivor and his wife, Pearl, wrote a book called The Altruistic Personal-ityŽ which describes how from the time they were very young, rescuers share a capacity for extensive relationships „ their stronger sense of attachment to others and their feelings of responsibil-ity for the welfare of others.Ž The findings of Staub and Oliner have been instrumental in promoting anti-bystander programs around the coun-try. The hope is to educate people to recognize the pressures and biases that influence their behavior and support them in taking courageous steps apart from the group. Most of us would like to believe that we would do the right thing in a crisis. The truth is, we never know for sure until were tested. Clarifying our per-sonal values and committing to honor-ing our sense of integrity is a challenge that does indeed take courage.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 A14 Colette MeyerFLORIDA WEEKLYS EXECUTIVE PROFILEBY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” Colette Meyer heads her own Jupiter law firm, but she could have had a career in medicine or in cheese. Ms. Meyer, born in Wisconsin, worked in her fathers cheese factory, and studied pre-medicine before going to law school. I actually was working for the dean of the medical school when I quit and was helping with his research,Ž she said. The job potential for Ms. Meyer was good, at least in theory. I decided research was a lonely life,Ž she said. And when it came to being a physician, I saw how much of a business it was and didnt like it,Ž she said. I always loved to write and that was the other side of it.Ž She had applied at Northwestern University and thought she wanted to be a journalist at one point. I took every graduate exam known to mankind. I always was good at fill-in-the-dots,Ž she said. After graduating from law school, she went to work filing appellate briefs for Wisconsins attorney general, and later worked as a corporate attorney in the branch of a New York law firm. She switched firms and started working with individual clients. I ended up enjoying it,Ž she said. It was less document-driven and more personal. There was contact with peo-ple and their problems.Ž That is key, especially in a retirement haven like Florida. We get people at the tail-end of their lives and they have these huge histories,Ž she said. Now she focuses on those histories, helping people write wills, advance directives and do estate planning. She keeps the work personal at The Meyer Law Firm, which has two lawyers and three paralegals. I prefer small. Lawyers dont like to be told what to do and its difficult to manage attorneys. I prefer to have it be a manageable size,Ž she said. Estate planning is something vital she says, adding, People put that off.Ž Some things never change. But one thing that has changed is the number of lawyers in the area. When I first came to Jupiter, there was a handful of lawyers,Ž said Ms. Meyer, who has been practicing in the area for 27 years. Now there probably are too many of us.Ž QFirst job: My father felt a critical life skill his children should learn was the meaning of work and, as a result, I performed a variety of first jobs at the cheese factory he owned in central Wisconsin. I remember days when his employees could not make it through snowstorms so we ventured into the winter wonderland to be help-ers at the factory in production, pack-aging and the office. Since my dad also felt that helping family out should not require payment, I received no cash compensation. My first paid job was as the neighborhood babysitter. QWhat I’m reading: I like to stay engaged in current events and marketplace economics. As such, I am an avid reader of newspapers and financial and news publications. I also enjoy reading fiction books, with Danielle Steele and John Grisham being a couple of my favorite unwind from life,Ž escapism authors. Even though Grisham writes law-related books and some would think reading his books would not be an escape from my work life, his stories pull me in and are entertaining. QMy personal philosophy: Estate planning involves intensely per-sonal issues for my clients. It requires planning for their death or dealing with the loss of a loved one which is never easy. Because of this, I feel that it is critical for me to provide not only quality legal services, but provide these services with personal attention and compassion. I am also adamant about individuals having emergency healthcare docu-ments. I have witnessed too many heart-wrenching situations in which a person becomes incapacitated and their loved ones are not clear about the medical treatments and choices the person would want or who should be making such decisions. Having an advance directive or living will along with a Healthcare Power of Attor-ney gives a family peace of mind that comes from knowing a plan is in place for emergency medical situations. QAbout The Meyer Law Firm: Meyer Law Firm maintains a focused practice and handles legal matters that affect a familys future including estate planning, wills and trusts, emer-gency healthcare documents, probate and guardianships. Our experience also extends into real estate, handling Florida residency planning, title insur-ance, contract closings and real estate tax appeals. We begin by understanding a clients financial as well as personal goals and wishes, and then design a plan that is individualized. Estate planning is an ongoing process. Just as important as the documents we prepare is a con-tinual review of any estate plan. Laws may change and family and financial situations may also change so we encourage our clients to make sure their estate plan adapts to lifes chang-es and always reflects their wishes. QWhat do you love about Florida? I moved to Jupiter immediately after receiving my Wisconsin law degree. Of course, coming from the Wisconsin tundra, the warm tempera-tures and turquoise waters of Jupiter were a draw, however, my parents had moved to Jupiter in the late 1970s and I fell in love with the area on visits. The Jupiter area is a melting pot that allows me to interact with people from a broad range of cultures who have varying styles and experiences. Although Florida is not the best location for one of my hobbies, downhill skiing, it does provide me many more opportunities to enjoy my other hob-bies, swimming and boating. And, the Jupiter-Tequesta area also has allowed me to get involved in another one of my loves, the arts. The Lighthouse ArtCenter and School is such a gem for the area. I have been fortunate to be involved with the art center for many years, most recently as the president of the board. The museum and school provide the com-munity a wonderful outlet for their artistic side. QBest thing about my work: Many think that estate planning is all about documents but underneath all the text and legalese,Ž there are real lives that are greatly affected. I have been drawn into many extremely rewarding cases where this human side is both heartwrenching and heart-warming. One particular heart-wrenching case involved a caretaker, Doris, who posed as the stepchild of an elderly couple. She talked the couple into signing over a third of the interest in their home and then proceeded to take out a $150,000 mortgage against the home plus ran up another $75,000 on credit cards she opened in the couples names. The couple became increasing-ly dependent on Doris, who delivered only marginal care and made them feel that she was the only person keeping them from going to a nursing home. Fortunately, the abuse was caught and Doris received 15 years in prison for elderly exploitation. Another case I handled involved a mother who stole millions from her minor daughters trust fund. And then there are the cases where someone does not have emergency healthcare documents and the family has to grapple with what medical care the person would want. When you know you are helping individuals who cant help themselves at the moment for whatever reason, whether it be that someone like Doris has brainwashed them or from demen-tia, illness or simply aging, it makes what I do have even more meaning. Clients have commented on the peace of mind they have knowing that, through their estate planning, they have protected their assets for their spouse, children and generations beyond. And, it is comforting to me to know that a family will not have to deal with unnecessary issues and more pain upon someones death. QMy personal mission for the firm: I worked in large New York and Palm Beach law firms and, although I enjoyed my work at these firms, I knew that I wanted to be able to dedicate more personal attention to my clients needs. I strongly believe that personal attention is critical in guiding clients through the complicated and often emotional maze of balancing family protection, wealth preservation and cherished family values in the estate planning process. When I started Meyer Law Firm, I built a highly credentialed team with other professionals who also chose to practice in the environment of a smaller, specialized firm. Each mem-ber of the firms team is dedicated to providing lifelong legal representation complemented by personal attention. QWhat’s on the horizon: I just finished an office expansion that pro-vides my team and me with a better work environment. It also gave me the space needed to add additional staff and an attorney, Mike Gort. Mike will be handling the firms litigation area including probate and real estate litiga-tion. QMy top tech tool: I love my new iPhone. I find it invaluable for keeping in touch with my office and clients when I need to be in court. QI love: Although it sounds contrite, I love my career in law. Having been pre-med, it was a difficult deci-sion to switch fields but I am so com-fortable and happy with my decision. I sometimes think of my father, who had not had good experiences with attor-neys, so was not particularly happy when I informed him I was going to law school rather than medical school. I hope that if he can see my work he is as proud of my guiding clients through difficult estate planning or legal issues as he would have been with me per-forming surgery. QI hate: When I hear about the emotional and financial abuse that can happen to a family and, all too fre-quently, within a family. Q >>Name: Colette K.

I then worked with an award-winning homebuilder, gaining experience throughout all aspects of the business. The knowledge and perspective that I have gained over the years has been invaluable, but one important advantage is the connections I have established with business associates and clients over the past 20 years. An example of how these connections benefit me is that I know of proper-ties that will be coming on the market before they are listed. Thus, I can let my buyers know when I see a property I feel meets their criteria before it is advertised to the public. About nine months ago, I was working with a couple who had been looking for a waterfront home for nearly a year. They had a very specific price point and many of the homes in their price range did not meet their needs. They wanted to be in the Palm Beach Gardens area just off of Prosperity Road, a desirable and popular area for boaters. We looked at all the available homes up to $2 million. Most needed major renovations or an additional bedroom added „ did I mention they have three young children? If the home met their needs, the waterfront location was not right. If the waterfront location met their needs, the home was not right. One day, I was at lunch with an associate who was going to look at a home on the Intracoastal and come to find out, it was a home that my former com-pany built in 1995. The owner wanted to make sure everything was in working order before listing the home. I decided to tag along since I had not been in the community for some time; a quaint gated commu-nity along the Intracoastal next to Log-gerhead Marina. With only five homes total, it is a very charming community with beautiful oak trees that line the cul de sac street „ a gated community, on the Intracoastal, with a cul de sac street „ did I mention they have three young children? From the moment I pulled up to the Key West-style home, I knew it would be perfect for my buyers. The home had wonderful detail, with one owner who maintained the property impeccably. It was a large great-room-style floor plan with an open kitchen and wrap-around porches. I could instantly envi-sion my buyers having the ability to entertain and host outdoor functions while there were also many spaces for the children to run and play. The bedrooms were generous in size; there was one large suite downstairs. The upstairs master bedroom had an expansive view of the Intracoastal and a lovely sitting room, while the second bedroom had enough space for two children. Although my buyers preferred each child to have their own space, I still felt confident in the home and the ultimate possibility that another bedroom could easily be added if the buyers elected to do so. I immediately called my buyers. I just found your new house,Ž I told them. We arranged to see the home the fol-lowing day, and they loved it. It was the first home they could envision them-selves in, but there was one challenge „ the extra bedroom. After seeking the advice of a contractor, it was determined there were sev-eral possibilities to get an extra room. By this time, the home had been offi-cially listed. The Realtor was a longtime friend of the current owner. The home unfortunately was listed at a much higher asking price then we anticipated. I researched all of the com-parable sales and discussed the details with my client „ ultimately presenting an offer. I asked the other broker if we could present the offer together to the owner in an effort to explain the reason-ing behind our offer, all based upon the comparable sales I had researched in the surrounding area. As much as I knew this house was meant for my buyers, I also knew I had quite a task ahead of me. The buyers had a budget and the owner was emo-tionally tied to her home. The listing agent and I spent more than an hour with the owner reviewing the offer and looking for a positive response. We did get a counter offer, but unfortunately not the positive response we were hoping for. The following day we came to terms that this contract could not be pulled together and my buyers decided to walk away. Although I continued to look at other properties with my clients, they kept coming back to the home in this very special community. I was confident that if they had the patience, this would be their home. Fortunately for us, there were not many showings on the home because of the high list price, so I did not feel the home would sell immediately. I kept in touch with the listing broker. Three months later, my buyers agreed to raise their initial offer and resubmit a contract. By this time, the owner was ready to sell and realized that although her home and property were unique, in a great location and maintained better than most, she was not going to get a much higher price than what she was offered. The house sold for 75 percent of its list price and my buyers are now adding that additional bedroom. Q „ Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates.

A22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Heres to ladies night, always on an off-night, never the good nights, always a Tuesday or a Thursday „ some throw-away day of the week. Women elbow-deep at the bar and the men absent until later, until after the ladies have consumed enough two-for-one beers or dollar-off margaritas to make them socially lubri-cated, when the tight groups of females have loosened and the toasts turned from, Who needs a man?Ž to Tonight were getting lucky.Ž Fish in a barrel, the guys might say.They show up with their fresh-shaved faces wearing department store cologne and offer to buy one of the women a drink „ not the prettiest, maybe, but the one who looks most fun „ and suddenly the group splinters. What happens to those ladies scooped up by men in b utton-do wn shirts? The usual: a first date followed by breathless phone calls to the same group of girlfriends to report every detail. What did you wear?Ž her friends will ask. What kind of car does he drive?Ž Then, the uncertainty. The will-he-orwont-he-call. Dont worry, hell call,Ž the friends say. Theyll be the first to know when he asks her on a second date. Later, over rib-eye and baked potatoes at some chain restaurant „ T.G.I. Fridays or Applebees „ shell sit stiffly as the man drones on about his job, as he talks and talks and talks, and shell think, Do I have lettuce stuck in my teeth? When he pauses for breath, hell ask if hes boring her and shell smile a close-lipped smile (because of the let-tuce) and shake her head. Shell eye his jawline and evaluate his nose, wondering about the potential for cuteness of theirgenetically blended offspring. If all goes well, not just at dinner but later, that night and the next week and the week after that, theyll tumble into a life together, and although he will be the per-son she goes to bed with at night with and wakes up to in the morning, shell still confide her worries and expecta-tions in her girlfriends because there is some-thing to be said for those women who have known her for so long. The relationship will go the usual way: marriage, kids, a house with furniture not bought from Ikea „ until it ends, as marriages always do, in divorce or death. Nothing lasts for-ever. And when her children have grown and her husband has left or died, shell gather up her friends for another ladies night. I saw one of these get-togethers during a recent night out with my beau. At the table across from us there were five women in their early 60s, dressed well but not extravagantly, the kind of women who have worked hard their whole lives and now seem to be enjoying retirement. One of them raised her glass to the woman next to her. Happy birthday,Ž she said and the others joined in. I watched as they laughed and talked easily together, and I couldnt help but wonder if they were relieved that the early days were over, that all the worrying and searching had passed, that they had made their lives and survived and were with good friends once again.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 A23 CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER THE FICKLE FINGER OF FATEIt is possible to play a hand correctly and get a bad result, and to play the same hand incorrectly and get a good result. Consider the accompanying deal from a European championship match between Nor-way and France. At the first table, with a Norwegian pair North-South, six spades was reached on the bidding sequence shown. West led the king of diamonds, and declarer breezed through the play to bring in the slam with an overtrick for a score of 1,460 points. He won the diamond lead with the ace, finessed the jack of spades at trick two, led another spade and collected the rest of the tricks without even breathing hard. At the second table, with France North-South this time, the same contract was reached, and again the opening lead was a diamond. But at this table the French declarer played the hand more scientifically and went down as a result. After taking the diamond with the ace, he was unwilling to settle for a mere 50 percent chance of mak-ing the contract by relying exclusively on a trump finesse. Instead he decided to play the A-K-Q of hearts in the hope that the opposing hearts were divided 3-3 (a 36 percent chance), in which case he could discard his diamond loser on the third round of hearts. He also had the added chance that even if the hearts broke 4-2, he could still fall back on the trump finesse. All factors considered, this gave him about a 2-to-1 chance to make the slam. Unfortunately, West ruffed the second heart lead and cashed the queen of diamonds, and South went down one. Sometimes, a little superior knowledge can be a dangerous thing! Q


A24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYFor us, these are our two largest games of the year. I think we estimate that between Abacoa and our game, 15,000 people come to this area on the Fourth of July,Ž Mr. Bauer said. The event opens July 3 with a game between the Palm Beach Cardinals and the Jupiter Ham-merheads. The game will be followed by a fireworks display and a concert by the cover band River-down. On July 4, there will be a game between the Cardi-nals and the Bradenton Marauders. Then more fireworks, and a concert by country artist Tom Jackson. Youve got a game, fireworks and music,Ž Mr. Bauer said. The stage is set up along the first base concourse. Look for portable bars serving beverages and snacks. For youngsters, Mr. Bauer said there will be a mega kids area,Ž with inflatable bounce houses and slides, plus a track-less train that will offer rides. He said he is especially excited about the music that will be offered this year. Riverdown is known as a real crowdpleaser, and this is just the type of venue its members enjoy playing. We just love doing these events, especially Fourth of July. We are a corporate band. We are a club band. We do a lot of smaller venues, so when we have an opportunity to do a bigger show, the band steps it up,Ž said lead vocalist Jimi Robinette. The band, based in West Palm Beach, plays about 250 shows a year, Mr. Rob-inette said. Its four members hail from West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. The reason we work a lot and the reason we are well accepted is that we are able to do whatever genre is set in front of us. We do pretty much any-thing from the late 60s to today,Ž Mr. Robinette said. So what will Independence Day revelers hear? Lots of 80s music. Well keep it rock n roll, anywhere from Def Lep-pard to the Foo Fighters. High energy. We only have an hour-and-a-half on stage, so well keep it pumping,Ž he said. I do the national anthem on a daily basis, so Ill see if I can sneak that in.Ž Also expect a little Sweet Home Alabama.Ž When we do one show like this, anthems are the key. You want to do the wow factor on everything you do. People singing along, clapping hands. You dont want to do any fillers,Ž Mr. Robinette said. Expect the band to play such titles as Queens We Will Rock YouŽ and Bon Jovis Livin on a Prayer.Ž People like singing along, knowing the show. People like being part of the show,Ž he said. For country singer Tom Jackson, performing for a large crowd is exhila-rating. Its a natural high, especially when you get new fans. There is nothing like sharing your music with new fans. You never know who is in the audience,Ž he said. Mr. Jackson was raised in Belle Glade and moved to West Palm Beach in his teens. His life is steeped in the tradi-tions of old Florida. My grandmother and grandfather were among the first 10 settlers in Belle Glade. They raised 15 kids. It would be a good book,Ž he said. His songs are influenced by that legacy. I grew up out there in the muck fields,Ž he said. Its crazy to think how rich that muck is, especially to see ice-berg, endive growing in it. Its a differ-ent lifestyle „ a lot slower pace.Ž He just signed with a new recording label „ Ironside Records „ and recorded his second album, titled Keep it Country.Ž The title cut from his first album, Southern Thang,Ž was used as a theme song for a TV show called Human Target.Ž That was a thriller about a bodyguard who protects his clients by impersonating them to draw out would-be adversaries. Life in Florida is a little simpler than that. Growing up in the Glades, Mr. Jackson hunted rabbits with a slingshot. He even wrote the song Huntin is GoodŽ for a Sportsmens Channel show of the same name that will air starting in July. He and his wife, Danielle, often hunt with a bow. Its more of a challenge, to be honest with you. Stick and string „ youre more one-on-one with nature,Ž he said. And one-on-one with himself and his family and friends. I hunt and fish and live the country lifestyle. I dont smoke, I dont drink. I have a handful of friends,Ž said Mr. Jackson, who lives in Jupiter Farms. Hell perform for more than a handful of friends and fans. Thats what makes this event especially fun for the stadiums Mr. Bauer. For me, July 4 is large crowds, its families. Everyones happy to be here. It just feels good to be a part of every-bodys Independence Day,Ž he said. And it reminds him of how lucky he is to have a job he loves. Having done a couple of seasons now, I really have the lay of the land. Its a beautiful community to live in, and its been a passion of mine to work in baseball. To have involvement with two teams is very special. Im very happy here,Ž Mr. Bauer said. Things dont get much more American than that. The only thing you add in there with baseball is apple pie,Ž Mr. Bauer said. This is our event of the year. Were really looking forward to it.Ž Q JULY 4THFrom page 21BAUER Independence Day events>>July 4th Mega Bash IV: July 3: Gates and kids area open at 5 p.m. Palm Beach Cardinals play the Jupiter Hammerheads at 6:35 p.m., followed by reworks and a concert by Riverdown.

P To be honest, at my school Im always trying different accents anyway. So many movies are American anyway, so when we try to quote movies, its always in an American accent,Ž he said. Mr. Humphreys, who attends a boarding school in Gloucestershire, came to Jupiter to visit his grandpar-ents, Fred and Virginia Hadfield, and to attend the Maltz summer conservatory. His teachers in England heard him singing at school and persuaded him to get involved with a band. Ive been singing lots of Elvis Presley and Beatles stuff and some Jim Morrison stuff. This year Ive had a lot of singing to do from nothing,Ž he said. He is getting more comfortable with the idea of performing. Before when I found out I was going to have to sing, I was a bit worried because I wasnt really comfortable singing in front of people,Ž he said. But doing this has really gotten me a lot more comfortable singing in front of people.Ž That was a first in many ways for Mr. Humphreys. And when the show had its debut in 1960, it was a first for Broadway. When this show first came, it was in the sense, the very first show about rock n roll. They werent even sure it was even going to work,Ž said Deanna Dys, director and choreographer of the show. The fun part is because its here at the conservatory, getting to do it on real teenagers, (and) so is that youth and that exuberance that theyre bring-ing to it that even an adult cast would have a hard time wrapping around,Ž she said. You have a bunch of teen-age girls and a cute boy like Christian and you say, Scream! and theyre just all gung-ho because theyre screaming for the joy of being teenagers and that innocence that comes with it.Ž The premise is this: An agent and songwriter frets when rock star Conrad Birdie is drafted into the Army. The songwriters sweetheart comes up with a publicity stunt to have Birdie record and premiere a song before he is sent overseas. She makes the writer promise to give up the music business and to start teaching English. They plan to have Birdie sing the writers new song One Last KissŽ and give one lucky girl from his fan club a real last kissŽ on The Ed Sullivan ShowŽ before going into the Army. Julie Rowe, director of education for the Maltzs Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts, said the show will offer a good representation of the range of talent at the Maltz. Theres loads of opportunity for everybody to be on stage,Ž she said of the cast of 53. Is that like herding cats?The kids are a really good group and everyones really respectful of one another and weve set a pretty good structure of expectation and thats it,Ž she said. Ms. Dys, the director, said she is amazed at the dedication of this cast, which ranges in age from 12 to 18. What I think is so wonderful is even though theyre young and theyre just learning, they are so professional. They are here ready to work, eager to work, enthusiastic, always willing to keep going and try it,Ž she said. Theyre doing a great job. I think the conserva-tory does a marvelous job of training young actors.Ž She should know. At 16, Ms. Dys was the youngest performer ever hired by producer David Merrick for his musi-cal 42nd Street.Ž She starred as Dolly Tate opposite Reba McEntire in Annie Get Your Gun,Ž and starred as Nickie Pignatelli in Sweet Charity,Ž and she won an Emmy Award for her choreography of a series of commercials for the Boston Red Sox. She currently is choreographer for the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.Ž Ms. Dys knows big-time talent, but is taken with the homegrown talent she has seen at the Maltz. Im thoroughly impressed that there are that many local kids in the area who are brought into the theater and are exposed to theater at such a young age. Even if it doesnt turn into a career for them, theyll be the support-ers of the next generation who comes to see the theater if theyre not in the theater,Ž Ms. Dys said. Maybe theyll even develop a friendship or two from across the pond. I was really, really nervous about coming before because I thought it would be completely different meet-ing loads of new people coming from a completely different country. It was really scary on the way, especially when I learned it was a musical, Mr. Humphreys said. Its not his first visit to Florida.I come every year, but I never, ever get to know anyone in the states. Now I know where I can hang out,Ž he said. And maybe sing a little.

Writer/director Wes Anderson (RushmoreŽ) is as quirky as ever here, but the story is more heartfelt than usual, making this one of his best films to date. Rated PG-13.Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World ++ (Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Patton Oswalt) With an asteroid set to destroy earth, Dodge (Carell) and Penny (Knightley) help one another fulfill last wishes. Its an intriguing premise, but a hackneyed second half undoes all its charm. Rated R.People Like Us ++ (Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde) After his father dies, Sam (Pine) is asked to track down his long-lost sis-ter (Banks) and nephew and give them the $150,000 bequeated to them. The problem is that Sam needs the money and cant bring himself to hand it over. Although his actions are understandable, the fact that the premise hinges around a one-sentence lie is too thin for the film to hold up for two hours. Rated PG-13. Q CAPSULES +++ Is it worth $15 (3D)? No Is it worth $10? YesBraveŽ features a different kind of princess for a different kind of Disney fairy tale. Far from the feminine innocence of Snow White and Cinderella, Merida (Kelly Macdonald) is a Scottish lass who thinks and acts like one of the boys, which makes it all the more torturous when shes expected to act like a lady. That her story is told with strong Pixar animation, decent comic relief and genu-ine warmth is befitting for the stellar role model shes bound to become for girls all over the world. The daughter of a king (Billy Connolly) who once fought off a horrific bear, and with bright red hair, a feisty attitude and excellent archery skills, Meri-da would be a handful for any man. Against her wishes, her mother Elinor (Emma Thomp-son) invites three suitors to their kingdom to win Meri-das hand in marriage. They all fail; Merida escapes and asks a witch (Julie Walters) to cast a spell that will change her mothers mind about not letting Merida determine her own future. The spell works, but not without side effects. What happens from there follows conventional fairy tale storytelling, but does so in a way that always has surprises around the corner. This PG-rated film is a story full of imagination and wonder. Theres noth-ing girlyŽ about it „ and thats a great thing. To dumb it down „ or worse, add a male lead „ wouldve been a cop out. But will pulling no punches with its protagonist make a difference? This is the first time a female has been at the center of a Pixar story (as opposed to toys, a rat, a fish, cars, etc.), and histo-ry tells us that female-driven fairy tales without a Prince Charming are a risky box office proposition. Remember The Princess and the FrogŽ? It wasnt Pixar, but it was Disney and it was extremely well done. Too bad nobody saw it. Another problem BraveŽ will have, aside from keeping boys interested throughout, is that theres little here for adults. The humor is cutesy, not sophisticated „ Meridas three rapscal-lion little brothers provide the biggest laughs, and its all kids humor. And the theme of be careful what you wish forŽ is beaten into our heads by directors Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman and Steve Purcell, leaving no doubt that the message is especially intended for the films younger target demo. Lastly, the 3D animation is not spectacular, so no need to pay the up-charge. BraveŽ wont rank among Pixars best efforts, but it is the studios bold-est film to date in terms of going a little darker in tone and centering on a female heroine. Time will tell if the risk pays off, but itd certainly be nice for young girls to have one of their own to cheer for instead of talking animals. Q >> Although the exact time period is not revealed, judging by the food and attire, “Brave” takes place no later than the 1600s, making this the rst Pixar lm to be a period piece.

YOUR WEEKEND FORECASTJUST GOT A LITTLE BRIGHTER. Lighthouse ArtCenters popular 10-week ArtCamp for children is getting glowing reviews. Kids pretend to be famous artists throughout history, creating drawing, ceramics, painting, 3D and mixed media projects. Art projects range from Pop Art to Baroque to cartooning. Campers discover the subjects and styles of time periods, as well as techniques. The kids have fun exploring art movements and artists and create their own Art Palette Passport,Ž said Katie Deits, Lighthouse ArtCenters execu-tive director, in a prepared statement. Unfortunately, in the schools many art programs have been discontinued and children dont have a sense of art histo-ry. Our ArtCamp fills that gap and is fun and memorable, as the children learn about famous artists and movements.Ž The camp runs through Aug. 17, with the theme of each week inspired by different art periods. The weeks are a positive learning experience, giving each child an awareness to create a unique personal prize creation to take home,Ž said camp veteran instructor Evelyne Bates. She adds, In my 39 years of teaching in the summer camp program the rewards have been many. Children return again and again saying, I love ArtCamp! I too feel that way and look forward to new experiences every week.Ž Weekly subjects range from prehistoric caveman paintings to Renaissance supermen to wild Abstract Expression-ism and Pop Art. This camp has the perfect art-center topic. Kids soon realize that they can have a blast learning about different art movements, and take home some great art to show off to friends and family,Ž said Lighthouse ArtCenter Education Coordinator Robyn Roberts. ArtCamp is available for children ages 4 to 12, and runs five days a week through mid-August. ArtCamp hours are from 9 a.m. to noon for campers ages 4 to 5, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for campers ages 6 to 12. The weekly fee for campers ages 4 to 5 is $110 for Lighthouse ArtCenter members and $135 for nonmembers, and for camp-ers ages 6 to 12, $185 for Lighthouse ArtCenter members and $210 for non-members. After-care is also available for an additional fee from 3 to 6 p.m. For more information about ArtCamp, call the School of Art at 748-8737, or visit the Lighthouse ArtCenter online at Q Lighthouse ArtCenter campers create, explore art through historySPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Children created fantasy animals, painted flying bats and designed Greek temples in a class taught by Lauren Shapiro, top right.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 28-JULY 4, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35A dummy boardŽ is a decoration first used in the 16th century, probably in Hol-land, then England. It is a figure made from a flat piece of wood carved to make a tall flat personŽ to stand in a corner of an empty room. The edges of the board were beveled so they would not be seen from the front. There are boards attached to the back to make an easel that propped the figure up a short distance from a wall or chair. The figure was painted with oil paint and covered with varnish so cleverly it looked like a live person or animal. The figure was put in a dark area at the top of a stair, the end of a hall or a corner near a door. Some were made to look like house-hold help, a sweeping maid, a seated girl peeling apples, a maid carrying a tray with food. Some were soldiers. Many were men, women, boys or girls dressed in the expen-sive clothes of the day. Each held a sword, book, bird, flowers or other appropriate object. A few looked like poor peasants. Dogs and cats also were made as dummy boards and placed near a fireplace or chair. There were even some figures that looked like real gardeners that were put outside. These are rare today because the weather damaged them. The dummy boards are hard to find today, but an antique pair sold recently for $6,000, and a single one for $950. Q: My aunt gave me a sterling-silver telephone dialer that came from Tiffany. It is in its original box with a card from Tiffany that tells what it is and how to use it. The box says Tiffany & Co., Fifth Avenue at 57 Street, New York.Ž Can you tell me something about this? A: Telephone dialers were used to keep fin-gernails from breaking when dialing a rotary phone. They look a lit-tle like the handle of a spoon with a small knob at the end that can be inserted into the holes on the dial in order to turn the dial. Rotary dials were first made about 1900 and were standard on phones made in the 1920s to the 1960s. The first push-b utton phones were made in 1941 but were not available com-mercially until 1963. Tif-fany no longer makes the telephone dialers. A Tiffany sterling-silver telephone dialer was shown in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffanys.Ž When Holly and Paul go shopping at Tiffanys, they decide not to buy the telephone dialer, which cost $6.75, but pay to have a Cracker Jack ring engraved at Tiffanys instead. Today the dialer is an oddity worth its weight in silver. The box and card add $50. Q: I have an old drum with Union Drum Manufacturing Co. No 98 West Baltimore St., Baltimore Md.Ž printed inside. The drum has the usual 13 stars, but no other markings. Any history or price information will be appreciated. A: Union Drum Manufacturing Co. made drums for the Union Army during the Civil War. Drums were an important part of a martial band. The music served to motivate soldiers before and after fighting on the battlefield. Boys under the age of 16 enlisted in the Army as field drum-mers. Condition and ver-ified history determine the price. A Union Drum Manufacturing Co. drum in fair condition with the name of the origi-nal drummer could sell for $2,000-$3,000. With no name it could sell for $300-$500. Q: My parents left me a houseful of antiques, and I dont know what theyre worth. I found a local appraiser, but she wants $500 to come to my house. Is this standard? What do you suggest I do? A: We receive a lot of questions like yours and are preparing a report on how to deal with inheriting an estate, whether large or small, valuable or not so valuable. There is no national accreditation agency for appraisers of antiques, but you can still ask appraisers about their training, experience, references, hourly rate and if they belong to a national appraisal asso-ciation. And you can call a few apprais-ers before you hire one. An appraiser should not charge a fee for simply coming to your house. Tell the appraiser how many antiques you would like to have appraised and ask about an hourly rate. Do you want a written or oral appraisal? A legitimate appraiser should never offer to buy anything. You can find links to national appraisal associations and various appraisers on our website, The website and many books list hundreds of thousands of prices of antiques and col-lectibles to use for research. Q: Could you tell me what an original NFL Jeff Garcia figure is worth? It dates from when he was a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. A: McFarlane Toys of Tempe, Ariz., issued a 7-inch figure of Jeff Garcia in 2002. Garcia, now 42, played for the 49ers from 1999 to 2003. If your figure is in its unopened original package, it would sell for $35 to $40. Its worth less than half if you have an unwrapped figure. Tip: Never try to clean a doll with polish or wax. It will put a layer of wax on the surface, making it almost impossible to repaint the dolls face. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

A hinged board that is nailed to the back helps her stand up. She was bought at an auction in New York in the 1960s for $100 and has been in a hall corner ever since. FLORIDA WRITERSTampa Bay is setting for mystery/thriller that bridges two deathsBridge to OblivionŽ by Henry Hoffman. Ivy House/Martin Sisters Publishing. 220 pages. $15.95 trade paperback.Henry Hoffmans fourth novel is a taut mystery-thriller that employs the setting of Tampa Bays majestic Sun-shine Skyway Bridge. The real-life tragedy of a bridge disaster in the spring of 1980 inspires the premise: A young woman riding a bus across the bridge during a storm plunges, with others, to her death when a runaway freighter smashes into the bridge, causing a collapse. Where was she going? Why was she traveling without her husband? Was the catastrophe really accidental? And what led her younger sister, seven years later, to commit suicide by leaping from that same bridge? Was it really a suicide? There is a witness to the 1987 Charlene Gibbs suicide, a young man named Adam Fraley. When he sees Charlene con-templating her leap, he attempts, unsuccessfully, to talk her out of it. Unsatisfied with the police work and media reporting, Adam launches his own investigation. One thing bothering him is that no one mentions the fact that Charlenes sister, Carlene, died in the bridge col-lapse seven years earlier. No oneŽ includes Carlenes widower, Monte Wheeler, who was city editor of a major Tampa-area newspaper when his wife perished and is now its executive editor. Why doesnt Mr. Wheeler want anyone to make the connection? Clearly, Charlene was drawn to this spot because of what had happened to her sister. Adam served several years in the Air Force before deciding, in his mid-20s, to get a college education. Hes now attending classes at a community college while working for a small private detective agency. Hes learn-ing the trade, but mostly doing paperwork. His boss and men-tor, Pete Peterson, somewhat reluctantly allows Adam to attempt an independent inves-tigation „ but on his own time. Before long, Adam is stirring up trouble and enraging the local power elite. Is there a cover-up of some kind? What? Why? Author Mr. Hoffman skillfully develops Adams method-ical investigatory style and his commitment to finding the truth. While Adam learns by doing, the reader learns by following him around. Instru-mental to Adams education in interviewing and fact-find-ing is another professional, his gorgeous journalism professor who, ironically, once sought the position that Mr. Wheeler holds. Professor Nancy Egan, who also works as the managing editor of a rival paper, strives to keep her distance, but its clear that Adam is smitten. When Adam visits the Gibbs sisters hometown to scour police records, he discovers hes being followed. Along the way, he also learns that Charlene Gibbs had a child soon after her sister died „ the fathers name unrecorded. Suspense builds with each new fact, with the speculation that each discovery prompts and with each of Adams attempts to get the next answer. Even if Charlene took her own life, could someone have manipulated her into this act of desperation by making her situation unbearable? And whos tailing Adam? Mr. Hoffman, who has lived in Fort Myers since 1982, should increase his readership with this engag-ing story. The settings and characters are sharply drawn, and the complication of the plot grows at an effective pace. Bridge to OblivionŽ has an emotional charge that jolts like the lightning over Tampa Bay. Im betting that Adam Fraley is a character with a future. More about the author In the late 60s, just out of college, Mr. Hoffman was the wire editor for the Emporia Gazette, a Kansas newspaper that was purchased and brought to national prominence by William Allen White, a giant in the history of newspaper journalism and publishing. Hoffman also did some sports writing and other jobs at the paper.He later switched to a career in library science and headed the Fort Myers-Lee County Public Library from 1982 to 1998 (the branch, not the system). His earlier titles are: Bound,Ž Drums along the Jacks ForkŽ and Flahertys Run.Ž Most people know him as William (or Bill) Hoffman. Henry is his middle name and his pen name for fiction.

B2 healthy living JULY 2012 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY L osing weight is a big commit-ment. Many people often fail to stay true to their commitment because they give in to temptation or take a few weeks off of their plan. However, there is no such thing as a vacationŽ when it comes to weight loss. In order to successfully lose weight and keep it off, you have to be willing to make a lifestyle change; its something you have to stay com-mitted to for life and not just a few days here or there. To help you stay committed to making a healthy life-style change, Medi-Weightloss Clinics in Jupiter shares four ways to keep you accountable for your actions. Q Keep a food journal. K eeping a f ood journal is one of the most important tools you can use for weight loss and maintenance. People often over-eat because they are unaware of what they are consuming. By keeping a food journal and recording what you eat, and when you eat, you are held more accountable for your food choices. Q Make your weight loss public. S t arting a weight-loss blog is a great way to talk about your weight loss experience and also find support from others who are going through the same thing. Blogging also helps you stay committed to making good decisions, as you will be writing about them for the whole world to see. Q Schedule your workouts. Mak e e xercise a priority just as a work meeting or doctors appointment would be. Schedule your fitness activities and write them down on a calendar so you are less likely to skip them. Further-more, plan your workouts with a friend or personal trainer so that you are more committed to attend. Q Find motivation and support. A c cording to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, diet participants who had monthly personal counseling had the most success and kept more weight off than those who did not. To hold you more accountable, increasing the frequency of your coun-seling to a weekly basis could help you succeed even further. If you are join-ing a weight loss program, make sure it includes counseling and motivation. Also, ask your family and friends to sup-port you and encourage you to stay on track of your goals. Making a lifestyle change to lose weight is a major commitment. Follow these tips for accountability can help you stay on track of your goals and achieve weight loss success.

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. How to divorce a flesh-eating zombie T he first thing you have to consider before divorcing a flesh-eating zombie (FEZ) is whether or not you are actually married to a FEZ. While there are no definitive tests to determine if your spouse has succumbed to this horrible condition, the symptoms are not subtle. First of all, you will notice a marked deteriora-tion of the flesh, including a grey or greenish pallor that will color most of the body. Next, they become really slow „ no, I mean really slow „ and they will move with their arms either extended or held stiffly at their sides. There is some debate as to whether they actually moan, or simply extend their jaws in a silent scream. There are a variety of legal issues to consider when confronted with this unholy transformation. The first is, can you kill it, and is it in fact human? There is no actual definition for humanŽ in Blacks Law Dictionary; however the definition for personŽ is as follows: In general usage, a human being (i.e. natu-ral person).Ž It is my opinion that given the current state of politics and religion in this coun-try anything that was at one time human, or might prospectively be human, ought best be left alone, or at the very least given to the state or local authorities to deal with. In a nutshell, I would highly discourage FEZ self-help. The next issue which should be considered when considering filing a divorce against a FEZ is whether they are competent to stand trial. In Florida, in order to receive a Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage you have to plead that either the marriage is irretrievably broken; or, the mental inca-pacity of one of the parties. However it is important to note that if you are alleg-ing the mental incapacity of your FEZ spouse then no divorce will be granted unless the party alleged to be inca-pacitated shall have been adjudged inca-pacitated according to the provisions of the guardianship statute for a preceding period of at least 3 years. Florida Stat-utes, Section 61.052. What this means to the layperson is that you really have to think carefully about whether you want to allege that your FEZ spouse is actually incapacitated. One would have to imag-ine that his or her attorney would likely raise this defense, and of course if they appeared pro se (without counsel) it is hard to imagine that the court would not notice something was amiss. In the event that you are able to reach an agreement with your FEZ spouse regarding a prospective divorce, it is important to consider how you will han-dle childrens issues. Florida has a time-sharing philosophy and enforcement mechanism called Shared Parental Responsibility. This contemplates that divorcing couples will act in a responsible and unified manner for the benefit of their children, much as they were unable to do during their marriage. This becomes increasingly difficult when one of the parties to a divorce is actually a FEZ. The most fre-quently requested, and the least seldom granted form of parental responsibility in Florida, is called sole parental respon-sibility. If you can provide competent substantial evidence to the court that your spouse or the other parent of your children is in fact a FEZ, it is very likely that you will be awarded sole parental responsibility. It is important to note sole parental responsibility refers to one parents ability to solely make deci-sions for the child or children. It does not mean that the other parent cannot exercise time-sharing with the child. To eliminate or restrict time-sharing you have to prove to the court that such a time-sharing schedule would not be in the best interests of the chil-dren. When one parent is a FEZ, my expert opin-ion is that this will not be a problem. One serious concern is what you do if the FEZ spouse was the primary bread-winner for the family. While there is no empirical data on the subject it is com-monly believed that FEZs cannot work. The reality is that a cunning lawyer representing the non-FEZ spouse could pos-sibility make an argument that there is plenty of work available in Hollywood and in almost every city and town on Halloween. They would then ask the court to impute income to the FEZ. However, these are evidentiary issues, and there are never any certain out-comes in court. There are many people who do not believe that there is any such thing as a FEZ. Conversely there are those who believe that we are on the verge of a vir-tual Zombie Apocalypse. Sure, the only Zombies most of us have ever seen are in the movies, but let us not forget the talking shoe in the Get Smart TV series that so vividly resembles the iPhone. I do know that a company called Hor-nady is actually producing Zombie Max Ammunition and Z-Max bullets. On their website they instruct and caution that this ammunition is not a toy, it is live, and it is intended solely for zombies. Q Kenneth A.

Special edition rides at Krank It Q Cycling 101: If you have always wanted to try indoor cycling but were intimidated or thought it was some-thing you had to work up to, this class is for you. We will cover all the fundamen-tals of spin. This class will be offered on the first Saturday of each month starting July 7. Q 100 Minute Century RideŽ: Endur anc e training challenges the mind and the body. This could be one of the most challenging and effective cardio workouts ever. And what makes 100 minutes go faster but upbeat music and constant encouragement from your instructor? This class will be offered the first Sunday of each month starting July 1.

Join Rick every Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. to rock the house. Six reasons to try Krank It Q Burn more calories: Indoor cycling classes help motivate you to work harder and get a better workout (which means better results and higher calorie burn). The energy the class cre-ates motivates you to push youself and burn more calories. Q Give your joints a break: Indoor cy cling is a lo w-impact cardio exercise, which means its easier on your joints, including your knees and ankles, than many other forms of cardio. Many peo-ple who are rehabilitating injuries or recovering from surgeries are advised to try low-impact forms of exercise (like biking or indoor cycling) in lieu of jar-ring activities like running. If you have an upper body injury, you can still ride the bike and get a good workout. Even if you dont have joint issues now, its a good idea to alter-nate your high-impact exercises with some lowand no-impact exercises like indoor cycling to avoid overuse injuries and give those vulnerable joints a break every so often. Q Stay in control: H ow many group workouts have you ever tried that can easily seamlessly accommodate begin-ners, people with injuries, hardcore exercisers, young and old, and advanced exercisers in a single room? Not many, Im sure. That is the beauty of indoor cycling: Its something everyone can do. You should think of your cycling instructor as a friendly guide. He or she usually has a general plan in terms of movements, intensity changes and pace, but really, YOU are the one in control. You decide how much resistance to add, how fast to pedal, and how hard to work. This means that people of all fit-ness levels can take the same class and all get a great workout. Q Enjoy the great indoors: Man y people lo ve biking „ and the benefits it provides as a great cardio workout with low impact on the joints „ but dont love biking in traffic on the streets. Indoor cycling will provide the same benefits without the uneasiness of cycling in a high-traffic area. Q Easy on the pocketbook: W e offer the lowest price in classes and packages to meet your needs. Q Feel the energy: At K rank It, our indoor cycling classes create a positive, high-energy atmosphere that can moti-vate you to push yourself and make you feel good about working out. It makes the whole workout experience more fun, and helps you feel connected with the people around you, like youre all in it together. You can always challenge yourself to match the pace of the instructor „ or another student „ for a little friendly competition. But at the same time, indoor cycling is non-competitive. You dont have to feel self-conscious for modifyingŽ the workout. And if any-thing, theyre secretly rooting you on. Look around at all the people who are all there for the same reason, and you can harness that energy for a great workout that you can feel good about.

Dr. Richard TiegenACUPUNCTURE AND ANTI-AGING PHYSICIANS GROUP 4601 MILITARY TRAIL, SUITE 205 JUPITER(561) R ecently there has been a great deal of research into acupunc-ture. This ancient system has been studied in many ways and by many different research organizations includ-ing the National Institute of Healths National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). Additionally, meta-analyses of existing research have been com-piled. As early as 1979, the World Health Organization listed 41 indica-tions for acupunc-ture „ everything from sciatica and low back pain to stomach pain and migraines. The largest study thus far was performed in 2004 at multiple U.S. medical centers. The results revealed a 40 per-cent reduction in pain and 40 percent improvement in people suffering from moderate to severe arthritis of the knee. Most interestingly, patients were called back one year after completing the study (no acupuncture for one year) and essentially maintained the improve-ment. Acupuncture is frequently effective in treating chronic medical conditions. These types of problems tend to linger for months or years. Often, other types of treatment fail to help. Pharmaceu-ticals often have side effects. Surgery has risks. Acupuncture, on the other hand, is considered to be one of the saf-est procedures in medicine. Frequently, patients feel improvement after one or two treatments. Acupuncture utilizes techniques that are often overlooked in other forms of treatment. The pulse and the tongue are examined more critically. Herbs and supplements may be prescribed. Injections containing homeopathic medicines are used. These medicines are safe. Research indicates these injec-tions can be as effective as steroids without the risks During the initial acupuncture evaluation, various topics such as lifestyle, medical history and supplements will be discussed. This kind of compre-hensive approach may reveal factors contributing to the problem. The addi-tional information helps in formulating an integrative treatment plan. This can be the key to getting the proper treat-ment. Consider acupuncture as a great place to turn for many common „ and not so common „ ailments.

B8 healthy living JULY 2012 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYa creeping tendency toward diabetes; a mammogram; a pap smear; a colo-noscopy for those 50 and older „ or younger, if theres a familial risk factor. But theres been considerable rethinking, lately, about how much actual benefit a healthy adult derives from an annual check-up „ especially given the cost of those exams to both patient and the nations already burdened health-care system. A study by researchers at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center stated: The annual physical examina-tion remains a popular format with both patients and providers, despite the lack of evidence that either a comprehensive examination or laboratory screening tests are indicated for healthy adults. Patient desire for extensive testing and comprehensive examination combined with provider belief that the physical examination is both of proven value and can detect subclinical illness have led to the continued pervasive practice of annual physical examinations in our country.Ž Still, no one is suggesting that preventative health care be overlooked. The essential argument is against over-testing, ordering a series of just-to-be-sure tests that are unhelpful and can create unnecessary anxiety and expense and, sometimes, lead to patients endur-ing unneeded treatment suggested by an unreliable test. It has been suggested, more than once, that the over-ordering of tests has a correlation to doctors concerns about being sued for malpractice. In a poll of Florida physicians conducted last year, 88 percent of the 321 doctors who responded acknowledged practicing some form of defensive med-icine during the past year. (Often, the tests being cited are expensive CT and MRI scans, as a shown by a study pub-lished earlier this year in the American Journal of Orthopedics.) Apart from that skepticism, a majority of primary care doctors nationwide continue to believe in the importance of annual physicals, commonly called peri-odic health exams. Dr. Shiman is one of them „ with a caveat: You should really only order tests that would change what you would do (regarding treatment), not just order a test.Ž Such evidence-based preventive tests include mammograms and pap smears, considered not only important, but nec-essary. Patients nowadays tend to be increasingly savvy about health matters, and Dr. Shiman considers that to be largely a good thing: Its important to be an informed consumer. But because of the Internet, patients will Google their symptoms and come to you for a second opinion. Knowledge is important, but if you have the (medical) background, you can interpret whats going on.Ž Determining a health risk early and forestalling a bad outcome is the goal, he says: See if you can prevent the emergency visit.Ž More than anything, he says, Its important to have a physician you have a relationship with and you trust.Ž Q PHYSICALFrom page 1 Recommended testsThe United States Preventive Services Task Force was created in 1984 works to improve Americans’ health. An indepen-dent group of experts, it is composed of 16 volunteer members from all elds of preventive medicine and primary care, and it recommends certain tests, found to be effective. Among them: >>Cervical cancer: At least every three years for sexually active women 21 to 64; after 65, unnecessary if previous consecutive screenings have been negative.>>Colorectal cancer: No routine screening for ages 19-49, except for those at high risk. >>Diabetes (type 2): For ages 19-65+, at least every ve years until age 45 and every three years after 45 for those at high risk using fasting plasma glucose (FPT) test. >>Mammograms: Every 1-2 years after age 40, at discretion of primary care provider >>Cholesterol: Every ve years for those 1964 or at discretion of primary care provider; age 65+ at discretion of primary care provider. >>Prostate cancer: Digital rectal exam annually for age 50+ and prostate speci c antigen (PSA) if life expectancy is 10 years or greater. >>Osteoporosis: bone density screening ages 19-64 when risk factors (non weight-bearing status, mobility impairments, hypothyroid, post-menopausal women) are present; periodic screening of others at discretion of primary care provider. >>Plus: The Task Force also recommends that doctors routinely advise patients about tobacco, alcohol and obesity issues.

Advanced surgical procedures are invaluable, if you need them. For everyone else, though, the best way forward are the old reliables: exercise, a healthy and sufficient rest on as con-sistent basis as possible. Regular chiropractic care is also a key component of helping to keep your weight-bear-ing joints in peak condition. Annual rates in the United States for total hip replacement have increased more than 50 percent. In Denmark, rates have been increas-ing by 30 percent. Annual rates in the United States for total knee replacement have increased by more than 170 percent. In Sweden, rates have increased 500 percent in the last 20 years. With the aging of the population and increased lifespan, these rates will continue to increase. Advanced surgical procedures are invaluable, if you need them. Of course, many people have unrelenting, daily pain, which may require radical sur-gery. For everyone else, though, the best way forward are the old reliables: regular exercise, as vigorous as is appropriate; a healthy diet containing plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables; and sufficient rest on as consistent basis as possible. Regular chiropractic care is also a key component of helping to keep your weight-bearing joints in peak condition. Most hip and knee replacements are done because the person has severely painful degenerative joint disease „ osteoarthritis. Hips, knees, and ankles are all weight-bearing joints. These joints are big and strong and have many surfaces on which to distrib-ute the substantial mechanical loads which are placed on them throughout the day. But these joints dont last for-ever and, like all living systems, they will eventually begin to age and break down. Serious problems ensue, how-ever, when these critically important joints start breaking down long before their warrantyŽ expires. Many hip and knee problems are a result of chronically poor posture. Almost none of us are taught how to use our bodies properly. We dont come with instruction manuals. So as time goes on, the inefficient habits we develop as children and teenagers become permanent. People slouch, they let their abdominal muscles sag, they stand with all their weight on one leg, and their heads stick out in front rather than being centered over their chests. One result is chronically tight and painful neck, shoulder, and lower back muscles. Another result is chronically uneven distribution of the weight of the body, ultimately causing degenera-tion of hip and knee joints. Lack of a healthy diet prevents the lubricating tissues of the hip and knee joints from receiving key nutrients. Lack of proper joint lubrication causes osteoarthritis. Lack of regular exercise inhibits normal joint motion and normal joint nutrition and lubrication, leading to the development of degenerative joint disease. When you add up faulty bio-mechanics, lack of a healthy diet, and lack of proper exercise, the result is a prescription for chronic hip and knee problems. Its very important to address these issues when youre young. When youre not as young as you were, the time to begin making healthful changes is right now. Chiropractic care directly helps improve a persons biomechanics. Chi-ropractic care also helps people make the best use possible of the good food theyre beginning to eat and the regular exercise theyre beginning to get. For most of us, the best way to prevent the need for a hip or knee replace-ment is to take consistent, healthy actions on our own behalf. If a hip or knee replacement turns out to be the way to go, all of these healthy actions will help ensure a quick recovery and continued good health from this point onward. Q Dr. Michael PapaCHIROPRACTOR(561) Chiropractic careand healthy jointsTechnically speaking, chiropractic care helps balance weight-bearing loads in the spinal column. The immediate result is improved spinal biomechanics, which bene ts all the other weight-bearing joints in the body, particularly the hips and knees.Hip function and knee function are directly related to how well your spine is working. Many times, hip pain and knee pain are being caused by mechanical problems in the spine. Neck pain, shoulder pain, and lower back pain let you know that your spinal biomechanics are off. The con-necting links are biomechanics and distribution of weight. Regular chiropractic care addresses all of these problems, helping ensure optimal functioning throughout your body. By helping restore proper spinal biomechanics, chiropractic care helps improve hip and knee function, too. P

And researchers at the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville have found that a commonly used vitamin could help by increasing production of goodŽ cholesterol in the body. The findings were published ear-lier this year in the journal Metabolism, Clinical and Experimental. Physicians have long prescribed the B-vitamin nicotinic acid to help keep good cholesterol levels high. Early studies suggested that niacin prevents the removal of good cholesterol „ known as high-density lipoprotein or HDL „ from the body. In so doing, this raises the concentration of the sub-stance. But new results from studies of human cells suggest that niacin plays an even greater role of not just preventing removal, but actually boosting produc-tion of good cholesterol in the liver and small intestine. Weve known the value of nicotinic acid for years, but this shows there could be even more benefits than we thought,Ž says the studys lead author, Michael Haas, a research associate professor of medicine. A persons cholesterol reading is made up of two major parts: HDL and low-density lipoprotein, also called LDL or badŽ cholesterol. HDL is responsible for moving cholesterol out of various tissues and into the liver so it can be flushed from the body. Doctors recommend keeping good cho-lesterol levels high and bad cholesterol levels low. The body uses nicotinic acid to convert carbohydrates into energy. It is found in many over-the-counter multi-vitamin formulations and is sometimes prescribed on its own to lower triglycer-ides and increase good cholesterol. But until now, researchers werent quite sure whether niacin could actually increase good cholesterol levels. To find definitive evidence, the UF researchers tested human liver and intestine cells in the first study of its kind. They found that nicotinic acid increased the activity of a gene that produces the protein apolipoprotein A-1, which is the major component of good cholesterol in the blood. Not only that, the researchers were able to identify the specific region of the gene that was responsible for mak-ing new HDL. The work was funded by a $20,000 grant from the Endocrine Fellows Asso-ciation to former UF fellow Dr. Abdul-Razzak Alamir. We have hoped for a long time that we would develop a medicine to raise the good cholesterol. Unfortunately, many people do not tolerate the side effect of the drug nicotinic acid,Ž says Dr. Stewart Albert, a professor of internal medicine at the St. Louis University School of Medicine, who was not involved in the research. What Dr. Haas and his group have done is demonstrate how nicotinic acid can increase the bodys ability to make the good cholesterol. This may enable researchers to find other medica-tions that will accomp lish the same benefit with a lower rate of side effects.Ž Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe University of Florida Peanuts are rich in niacin, a vitamin that may boost production of “good” cholesterol. F orget for a moment what you eat „ and think about why you eat. If your answer is that you eat to gather nutrients and to stay alive, you are not seeing the full picture. Sure, we all eat to survive, but what percentage of your daily caloric intake is truly for health and survival? If you merely ate to survive and thrive, you would eat mostly vegetables and lean proteins, and never consume potato chips and soda. Most of the time, the reason we eat has little to do with actual hunger. We often eat to reward ourselves, to dis-tract ourselves, to celebrate an occasion or simply because we see food sitting there. In truth, the psychological reasons for eating and drinking are more powerful than the physiological reasons. Have you ever eaten until it hurt or eaten a particular food even though you know it upsets your stomach? If we were truly eating to survive and thrive, that would never happen. Obesity is an odd disease and a sign of the times. We have become so secure and comfortable with 21st century life in America that instead of fighting to survive, many Americans are effective-ly eating themselves to death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of America adults are obese. Furthermore, obesity-related health conditions „ including Type 2 diabe-tes, stroke and some types of cancer „ are among the leading causes of death. Heart disease, which is com-monly attributed to obesity, is the No. 1 cause of death in America. One of the greatest contributors to unwanted weight gain is emotional eat-ing. This occurs when you wish to escape a feeling „ loneliness, anxiety, stress or even boredom „ by seeking an object of comfort to soothe your emotions. While sources of comfort exist in many forms, from talking and hugs to sex and drugs, food is the most readily available and easily obtainable. Of course, the comfort is only temporary, the feelings return, and now you get to add guilt and shame over your eating to the feelings that existed previously. When the uninvited feelings inevitably return, the cycle begins all over again. The next time you find yourself struggling with a desire to eat, try some of these tips: Q Locate the sensation of hunger in your body. Is it in your stomach or in your mouth? Stomach hunger gen-erally means your body is requesting nutrients or calories; mouth hunger is generally psychological or emotional. Q Stay busy. Idleness leads to boredom, depression and anxiety. Call a friend. Go for a jog. Read a good book. Play with your pet. Go window shop-ping. Do some volunteer work. Q Dont do it alone. Help is available. You can join a support group, such as Overeaters Anonymous []. You can also find a psycholo-gist who can help you understand your eating issues, determine whether you have an eating disorder and help you develop more effective coping skills.

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY O lder adults who drink coffee „ caffeinated or decaffeinated „ had a lower risk of death overall than others who did not drink coffee, according to a study by researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, and AARP. Coffee drinkers were less likely to die from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections, although the association was not seen for cancer. These results from a large study of older adults were observed after adjustment for the effects of other risk factors on mortality, such as smoking and alcohol consumption. Researchers caution, however, that they cant be sure whether these associa-tions mean that drinking coffee actually makes people live longer. The results of the study were published in a recent edition of the New England Journal of Medicine. Neal Freedman, Ph.D., Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, NCI, and his colleagues examined the association between coffee drinking and risk of death in 400,000 U.S. men and women ages 50 to 71 who participated in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. Information about coffee intake was collected once by ques-tionnaire at study entry in 1995-1996. The participants were followed until the date they died or Dec. 31, 2008, whichever came first. The researchers found that the association between coffee and reduction in risk of death increased with the amount of coffee consumed. Relative to men and women who did not drink coffee, those who consumed three or more cups of coffee per day had approximately a 10 percent lower risk of death. Coffee drinking was not associated with cancer mortality among women, but there was a slight and only marginally sta-tistically significant association of heavier coffee intake with increased risk of cancer death among men. Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages in America, but the association between coffee consumption and risk of death has been unclear. We found coffee consumption to be associated with lower risk of death overall, and of death from a number of different causes,Ž Mr. Freedman said. Although we cannot infer a causal relationship between cof-fee drinking and lower risk of death, we believe these results do provide some reassurance that coffee drinking does not adversely affect health.Ž The investigators caution that coffee intake was assessed by self-report at a single time point and therefore might not reflect long-term patterns of intake. Also, information was not available on how the coffee was prepared (espresso, boiled, filtered, etc.); the researchers consider it possible that preparation methods may affect the levels of any protective compo-nents in coffee. The mechanism by which coffee protects against risk of death „ if indeed the finding reflects a causal relationship „ is not clear, because coffee contains more than 1,000 compounds that might poten-tially affect health,Ž said Mr. Freedman. The most studied compound is caffeine, although our findings were similar in those who reported the majority of their coffee intake to be caffeinated or decaf-feinated.Ž Q Coffee drinkers lower their death risk, study finds
