A2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY One day it went missing. We all kind of flipped because it was our unofficial mascot,Ž said Tamra FitzGerald, president and managing partner at Venue. Turns out her boyfriend had done a little fishing of his own. Bruce Grout, general manager at New Port Cove Marine Center, had heard of plans by heavy equipment operator Beyel Bros. to move the fish north. Tamra and her office had a fascination with the fish,Ž Mr. Grout said. So he bought the fish, made some modifications and repairs and moved it to New Port Cove. But by the time it got to the marina, the 7,000-pound concrete and steel fish had gone bad. Its paint was faded, its scales were dull and there was a giant hole in its side. We both love the fish and the idea was we had to save it and share it,Ž Ms. FitzGerald said. The fish still had an opening for kids to climb up its back and slide down its tongue, which could be a liability for New Port Cove. Mr. Grout got to work on the fish, enlisting his staff to patch the gash in its side with Bondo, fiberglass and Starboard, then enclosing the ladder that led to the slide. Starboard is the stuff they make cutting boards out of. It probably will last longer than the fish,Ž Mr. Grout said. They did all the bodywork, applied a basecoat of paint to the fishs rubbery surface and enlisted students from the Riviera Beach Maritime Academy to create a design for the fish, which was sent to the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, where arts campers painted a design of scales on the fish. It was returned to the marina and gently eased between palm trees into a spot near the water, where its now a gathering spot for kids of all ages. Thanks to Bruce, our favorite Riviera Beach landmark has been saved. It may be a fish out of water, but it has a great home at New Port C ove,Ž s aid Ms. FitzGerald. Said Mr. Grout: There have been literally hundreds of kids on that.Ž And that includes one marina director.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYGive the Obama Youth credit for this: At least they didnt vote their self-interest. The cadres of college students and recent graduates who swooned and fainted for Barack Obama four years ago will long be remembered for one of the most ill-considered fliers in the annals of self-defeating enthusiasms. In the cold light of day, the youthful idealists, believers and activists of 2008 look like the lamentable saps, patsies and suckers of 2012. Rarely has a politician owed so much to a constituency he has served so poorly. The president promised young voters the moon, and all they got was their old child-hood bedroom back in their par-ents house. He fired them up with an inspirational vision that didnt include struggling to find a job to begin to pay off their onerous stu-dent loans. He sold a new kind of politics and gave them more debt and more entitlement spending that they will labor to fund all their working lives. Obamas inability to deliver on a recovery worthy of the name has devastated recent college graduates. By one count, half of them are unem-ployed or underemployed. More of them are carrying debt from college, more than 60 percent, than have full-time employment. Studies show that graduating into such a weak economy has a long-lasting dampen-ing effect on the earnings of young people. They bear the brunt of the economic failure of their champion. If man doesnt live by bread alone, neither does the youthful Obama voter. He is attracted to the presi-dents social views, to his supposedly forward-looking progressivism, to what his historic election symbol-ized in 2008, to his cool and cerebral style. Obama hasnt created the con-ditions for them to get a decent job, but he can represent their mutual values. Based on fiscal calculations alone, it would take a clinical psychologist, not a political scientist, to under-stand the young Obama voter. The basic dynamic of the entitlement state favors the old over the young. It is natural that retirees and baby boomers would be fiercely protec-tive of the entitlement status quo that they will benefit from at someone elses expense. It is less natural for the someone else „ i.e., the young worker „ to volunteer for the privi-lege of getting fleeced. They qualify as double victims of the presidents Keynesian-inflected deficit spending; they suffer from the still-anemic economy now, yet must pay the $5 trillion bill later. They are Generation Debt. On the current trajectory, they will inherit the country after the locusts have eaten. But, hey, did you see the pres-ident slow jamŽ the news on Late Night With Jimmy FallonŽ? Crumbs from the presidents giveaways „ like low-interest Staf-ford college loans „ cant possibly compensate for this larger picture. Some young people notice. A New York Times article reported that the president is encountering more youthful skepticism than in 2008: The nations first-time voters are less enthusiastic about him, are sig-nificantly more likely to identify as conservative and cite a growing lack of faith in government in general.Ž For all that, the president is still performing well among voters under 30. They were fooled once, and will be fooled again. They are Obamas dupes.

The brutal act propelled one of the worlds greatest artists into a three-week painting frenzy. Pablo Picassos GuernicaŽ starkly depicts the horrors of war, etched into the faces of the people and the animals on the 20-by-30-foot can-vas. It would not prove to be the worst attack during the Spanish Civil War, but it became the most famous, through the power of art. The impact of the thousands of bombs dropped on Guernica, of the aircraft machine guns strafing civilians trying to flee the inferno, is still felt to this day „ by the elderly survivors, who will eagerly share their vivid memories, as well as by Guernicas youth, who are struggling to forge a future for their town out of its painful history. The German Luftwaffes Condor Legion did the bombing at the request of Gen. Francisco Franco, who led a military rebellion against Spains democratically elected gov-ernment. Franco enlisted the help of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mus-solini, who were eager to practice modern techniques of warfare on the defenseless citizens of Spain. The bombing of Guernica was the first complete destruction by aerial bombardment of a civilian city in European history. While homes and shops were destroyed, several arms-manufacturing facilities, along with a key bridge and the rail line, were left intact. Spry and alert at 89, Luis Iriondo Aurtenetxea sat down with me in the offices of Gernika Gogoratuz, which means Remembering GernikaŽ in the Basque language. Basque is an ancient language and is central to the fierce independence of Basque-speaking people, who have lived for millennia in the region that straddles the border of Spain and France. Luis was 14 and working as an assistant at a local bank when Guer-nica was bombed. It was market day, so the town was full, the market square packed with people and ani-mals. The bombing started at 4:30 p.m. on April 26, 1937. Luis recalled: It went on and on for three and a half hours. When the bombing ended, I left the shelter and I saw all of the town burning. Everything was on fire.Ž Luis and others fled uphill to the nearby village of Lumo, where, as night fell, they saw their hometown burning, saw their homes collapse in the flames. They were given space to sleep in a barn. Luis continued: I dont remember if it was at midnight or at another time, as I did not own a watch at the time. I heard someone calling me. ... In the background, you could see Guernica on fire, and thanks to the light of the fire, I real-ized that it was my mother. She had found my other three siblings. I was the last one to be found.Ž Luis and his family were war refugees for many years, eventually returning to Guernica, where he still lives and works „ as did Picasso in Paris „ as a painter. Luis took me to his studio, its walls covered with paintings. Most prominent was the one he painted of that moment in Lumo when his mother found him. I asked him how he felt at that moment. His eyes welled. He apologized and said he couldnt speak of it. Just blocks away stands one of the arms factories that avoided destruction. It was the plant where chemical weapons and pistols were made. It is called the Astra building. While Astra has moved away, the weapons company main-tains its connection to the town by naming is various automatic weap-ons the Guernica,Ž designed by warriors, for warriors.Ž Several years ago, young people occupied the vacant plant, demand-ing it be turned into a cultural center. Oier Plaza is a young activist from Guernica who told me, At first the police threw us out, and then we occupied it again, and finally, the town hall bought the building. Then, we started this process to recover the building and to create the Astra project.Ž The aim of the Astra project is to convert this weapons plant into a cultural center with classes in art, video and other media production. We have to look to the past to understand the present, to create a better future, and I think Astra is part of that process. It is the past, it is the present, and it is the future of this town.Ž From Picassos GuernicaŽ to Luis Iriondo Aurtenetxeas self-portrait with his mother, to the efforts of Oier Plaza and his young friends, the power of art to turn swords into plowshares, to resist war, is perenni-ally renewed. 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.

My horses live with me now, and I have added more pet chickens. Goats? Maybe. But one kind of pet I havent had since my beloved little parrot, Eddie, died a few years back is on my list again. Parrots arent like other pets. Theyre wickedly smart, relatively high-mainte-nance, very messy and exceptionally long-lived. Im going to think long and hard before making the plunge, and not just because many kinds of parrots are likely to outlive me now. I will go sl owly mostly because I know that when it comes to parrots, too many people get in over their heads, choosing a pet whos too large, too loud, too expensive and, ultimately, too much to handle. I know which species are too much for me. But even the easier ones? Im still thinking. Parrots are wonderful pets, although they are much more work than many peo-ple realize. Before you fall in love with a parrot whos not a good fit for you, consider a few species that may fit the bill better. Q Cockatiels: When properly raised and socialized, these popular pets like to snuggle and be petted. If youve seen only the gray bird with orange patches, you may be surprised at how many cockatiel color and pattern variations are available these days. Some cockatiels learn to talk, but many are better at whistling. Q Budgies: Because of their small price tag and easy availability, budgerigars (com-monly, but improperly, known as para-keetsŽ) are often treated as throwaway pets „ easily purchased, easily disposed of and easily replaced. This attitude keeps people from valuing these birds for their affec-tionate personality. Some budgies even become very good talkers, albeit with tiny little voices. Budgies are commonly found in two varieties: the narrow American and the huskier English. Many budgies can be tamed by gentle, patient handling and can bond closely with their human companions. Q Lovebirds: When hand-raised and socialized, lovebirds enjoy being handled. Theyre very affectionate, not overly loud and are capable of picking up a few phrases. The peach-faced lovebird is the most com-mon, and this species also comes in many interesting color mutations. Contrary to popular belief, you dont need to keep them in pairs. Q Poicephalus: These small parrots are an easygoing bunch. Of the species avail-able as pets, the Senegal is probably the most common, a handsome little bird with a gray head, green back and wings, and yellow-orange underside. Poicephalus par-rots are known for their small size „ a little bigger than a cockatiel „ and affectionate personalities. Theyre not the best talkers, but some will pick up a few phrases. Q Pionus: Not as flashy as other midsized parrots, the pionus is often over-looked. But what it lacks in bright colors it makes up for with a winning personality. Several varieties of pionus are available as pets, all small enough to be easy to keep and handle. Their personalities are consid-ered among the most sedate of all parrots, and theyre not excessively loud. Those are my top five, but there are other starter birdsŽ to consider. Among them are the Pyrrhura conure (such as the green-cheeked), the Quaker or monk para-keet (where legal), and the lilac-crowned or other smaller Amazons. And, yes, Im thinking about another caique, like Eddie. Finally, the tiny and colorful parrotlet deserves consideration, too. Ill be thinking about it for a few months longer, and in the end I may decide never to have a parrot again. But I will always yearn for the cleverness and the quirkiness these special pets bring to any home. Q PET TALESPlanning for a parrot Even ‘easy’ species can be high-maintenance pets The cockatiel is one of the easiest parrots to handle, and a charming bird who enjoys interaction. Pets of the Week>> Santana is a 5-year-old neutered male Doberman Pinscher mix. He weighs 44 pounds, and though he has a lot of energy, he’s easygoing, happy and likes to relax. He’s available for the Senior to Senior program; adopters 55 and over pay no adoption fees.To adopt a petThe Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, was founded in 1925 and is a limited admission non-pro t humane society providing services to more than 10,000 animals each year. It is located at 3100/3200 Military Trail in West Palm Beach. Adoptable pets and other information can be seen at hspb.org. For adoption information call 686-6656. >> Sisters Ellie Mae and Jethrine are 1-year-old spayed domestics. They arrived at the shelter when they were 3 months old. They were so tiny they needed to grow from wee babies into kittens at a foster home. Both were shy and have blossomed into cats that enjoy the company of people. Toys are Jethrine’s favorites; Ellie Mae (right, above) prefers people. She eagerly comes up to you to be petted and will rub against you. She makes sure you receive at least one “head butt” a day.

According to a May report in the Brazilian edition of Billboard magazine, versions were set up in several Sao Paulo bars to see if mens aims improved. (Flushing produces an online address from which a sound recording of the users musicŽ can be retrieved.) Q In a project that has already gone live in 200 Michigan bars and restaurants, the states Office of Highway Safety Plan-ning has installed talkingŽ urinal cakes featuring a female announcer urging ine-briated patrons to call a taxi. Q Latest religious messages Q From time to time, Buddhist groups attempt to improve their karmic bal-anceŽ by doing good deeds for Earths animal cohabitants. (Previously, News of the WeirdŽ mentioned a California groups freeingŽ fish by buying out a pet shops inventory and liberating the luckyŽ fish into the Pacific Ocean „ where they were undoubtedly eaten almost immediately by larger fish.) In June, about 50 members of the Let Bless-ings and Wisdom Grow Buddhist group in Beijing bought at least 200 snakes, took them into a rural area of Hebei province, and, chanting, released them. Almost immediately, the snakes infested the nearby village of Miao Erdong, hor-rifying the villagers, who were able to club to death some of the snakes, but who remained on edge. Q Centers for Disease Control and Preventions weekly Morbidity and Mortality newsletter reported in June that, official-ly, 11 newborn Jewish males in New York City between the years 2000-2011 were diagnosed with herpes simplex virus that had been passed on by a circumcision technique in which the mohelŽ (circum-ciser) contains bleeding by sucking blood directly from the wound. Q Prominent filmmakers Daniel Junge (an Academy Award winner) and Bryan Storkel have been raising money for their documentary Fight Church,Ž featuring devout Christian mixed martial artists viciously pummeling each other „ but only after the brawlers begin the match with a prayer and commitment to serve Jesus Christ. Among those featured is Pastor Paul Burress of Rochester, N.Y., who says he loves to fightŽ and sees no problem with MMAs barbaric nature. These (techniques of fighting savagely) are the gifts and the skills God has given me.Ž Q Scottish officials were reportedly optimistic about a recent decision of the legislature of Louisiana. State officials this year broadened a voucher program to allow parents to choose private schools with Christian fundamentalist curricula. One prominent textbook for that curricu-lum (offered by the Accelerated Chris-tian Education program) touted sight-ings of Scotlands Loch Ness monster as evidenceŽ that humans and dinosaurs walked the Earth at the same time, thus undermining the widely accepted scien-tific theory of evolution. Officials now anticipate an influx of tourists to Loch Ness, near Inverness. Q Cultural diversity Q Television ads appeared recently in India exploiting womens obsession with lightening their skin „ a fascination already responsible for a rich market in facial bleaching. Now, ads for Clean and Dry Intimate WashŽ promise to refreshŽ a womans private parts by making them fairer. Female columnist Amrit Dhillon, viewing an ad of a disinterested husband ignoring his too-brown wife, denounced the product as catering to self-hatred „ of race and genderŽ and urged the ban-ning of the ads. Q In May, the Beijing Municipal Commission of City Administration and Envi-ronment issued a formal rule to crack down on unhygienic public restrooms. The toilets attendants will be ordered to take corrective action any time they count a number of flies equal to two times the number of stalls in the restroom.

That sex was volun-tary and, since Illinois age of consent is 16, legal. However, the court ruled, it is still illegal in Illinois to take sexual pic-tures of a child, and that particular law defines underage as under 18. (Mr. Hollins had claimed, unsuccessfully, that he surely ought to be able to take pictures of a legal event.) Q British soccer player John Terry was acquitted in July of hurling racial abuse at opponent Anton Ferdinand, even though Mr. Terrys three-word phrase was acknowledged by the judge to con-tain the word blackŽ and two words that are commonly censored in family news-papers. According to a New York Times dispatch before the verdict, there was much testimony about the paint-peeling profanitiesŽ that soccer opponents rou-tinely use on the pitch (in particular, referencing each others mothers sex lives). In handing down the verdict, the Westminster Magistrates Court judge said he was not certain that Mr. Terry was not simply repeating a slur that he had heard moments earlier. Q

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY keep putting chimps and other great apes in commercials and in the entertainment business. But at what expense to the primate talent? When Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars and Indiana Jones series retire, they should not have much to worry about. Each of the Hollywood superstars and film producers dollar worth is in the high millions and billions, according to Forbes Magazine.Thats not chimp change.But not all Hollywood stars have it so good when they leave the industry. In fact, some of Hollywoods funniest and most beloved stars wind up homeless and with not an asset to their name. For great ape stars like Bubbles, Popi and Bam Bam, there is no golden para-chute to fall back on or luxury Beverly Hills home to go to. When these primates were shown the exit door because they outlived their usefulness on the movie set, or became too strong as they grew from cuddly babies and adolescents to adults, they were not given a handsome severance package or even a caretaker to make sure they had a place to stay. Most chimps that are removed from the entertainment business wind up in medi-cal research labs, or in a tiny cage tucked away from other fellow apes. The lucky ones like Bubbles „ who once belonged to the late pop star Michael Jackson „ Popi and Bam Bam „ who starred in a TV soap opera Pas-sionsŽ „ get rescued and taken to the Great Ape Center in Wauchula. Here these former stars and more than 40 other chimpanzees and orangutans live out their lives in serene surround-ings. The non-profit sanctuary was founded more than 15 years ago and is accredited by The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries. Its sole focus is the care of chimpanzees and orangutans „ great apes. The center came to the attention of Palm Beach Gardens real estate attorney Wally Baldwin, who organized a recent fundraiser at Seasons 52 banquet room. Mr. Baldwin learned about the Center for Great Apes through a film called Project NIMŽ that aired on television. Hes now an ardent supporter. When Mr. Baldwin met with founder and execu-tive director Patti Ragan, she and the cen-ter took his breath away, he said. I was not only struck with the beauty and high intelligence of the animals, but the work,Ž he said. The recent mixer, which Ms. Ragan attended, raised about $4,000. Mr. Bald-win said he is planning to organize more events in Palm Beach County. What really touched me was going there,Ž Mr. Baldwin said, referring to a visit to the center. They are really good people trying to make a difference in the lives of animals that would otherwise have a bleak existence.Ž The center is nestled within 120 acres of rural, tree-laden property. There the apes spend their time roaming through an above-ground tunnel system and roomy enclosures. They have toys, enrichment activities such as material to create art, and donated iPads to play with. On hot days, the apes „ most of which eat vegetarian-based diets „ get fruity popsicles and kiddie pools to use. Many choose to stay cool in their night houses. What they dont have are entertainment businesses trying to make money off of them or misguided people trying to keep them as pets. Here the apes are apes and treated as such. It is as close to the tropical rain forests and jungles as they can get. For Ms. Ragan, this is all she wants for them. Great apes are intelligent,Ž said Ms. Ragan. Ms. Ragan began her mission to help save and care for great apes more than 20 years ago when she began caring for an orangutan and fostering an infant chim-panzee for a Miami-based zoo. Ms. Ragan is like a battle officer who must keep sentry over many fronts. She provides homes for apes from the enter-tainment industry and well-meaning pri-vate citizens who can no longer care for PRIMATESFrom page 1 Center for Great ApesQ The center is located on 120 acres in Wauchula, near Arcadia.

Q The outside habitats are three stories tall (about 35 feet) and all 12 enclosures are con-nected to each other, as well as to the vet clinic, by a tunnel/chute system that is more than 4,000 feet long.

But she also is facing the formidable front of the palm oil business, which is destroy-ing habitat for many orangutans in places like Sumatra. Palm oil companies slash and burn habitat to replace with palm trees,Ž Ms. Ragan said. Common food items such as granola bars are made with palm oil. She urges the public to boycott the use of palm oil-based products. She reasons that if people stop buying the products, the need to destroy habitats for the pro-duction from palm trees will halt. In the meantime, Ms. Ragan said she must make sure that the center has what it needs to care for its residents. These needs come in the form of elaborate, large and well-constructed enclosures. And because male orangutans cannot be with other males, allowances and special structures must be made. These specially designed facilities and enclosures dont come cheap. Right now the center needs $50,000 to complete an orangutan enclosure that when finished will house two females „ Popi and Allie „ as well as two males. This structure must be attached to their night houses and central tunnel and chutes system, Ms. Ragan said. It costs about $20,000 per ape to care for the residents. The center relies on donations to feed and care for their primate residents. In spring the center holds an open house for new members to tour the private facility and during the year, the staff works to increase donations through planned giv-ing and the Ape Guardian program. Though the centers goal is to give a permanent home to ape rescues and retirees, Ms. Ragan also hopes to make people aware of the need to not support apes in the entertainment business, or as pets. They might look cute and funny in shows and movies and even in your liv-ing room. But those young apes grow up to weigh more than 200 pounds, and become very strong, Ms. Ragan said. She sighs as she talks about the center, and goes on rounds checking on some sick apes on a recent morning. There is no rest for Ms. Ragan, who has made protecting and caring for apes her lifes mission. The soft-spoken woman, who shuns any kind of accolades for her work, says there is a need to care for all of our fellow animals. Were all on this planet together,Ž Ms. Ragan said.

My opinion is that it depends on your situ-ation. If you are injured or ill, going to a hospital emergency room is the likely choice. Hospitals, like Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical Center, typically provide a full range of services for common medical conditions as well as emer-gency care. If you need medical care for a condition that is not a serious, immediate threat to life or health, you may want to go to an urgent care center when you cannot see your primary doctor right away. These clinics typically provide treatment for minor illnesses, cuts, burns, bites, stings, sprains and strains. They often charge approximately the same as a doctors office. These clinics also may offer convenient on-site laboratory and X-rays, as well as extended hours in the evening and on weekends. There is also a new delivery system being introduced called freestanding emergency rooms. Many patients are confused about freestanding emergency rooms and how they differ from urgent care centers. Freestanding emergency rooms seek to duplicate the complement of proce-dures and services offered by hospital emergency departments in acute care hospitals. Unlike most urgent care centers, freestanding emergency rooms usually see patients with more serious illnesses. Many questions still need to be answered: Will ambulance drivers and other emergency personnel be able to determine whether a particular patient is too sick for the freestanding emer-gency room? Will patients lose valu-able time by being transported to a freestanding emergency room and then being re-transported by ambulance to a full-service acute care hospital? There are also questions about whether the duplication of personnel and equip-ment between the acute care hospital and the freestanding emergency room is a good thing for a healthcare delivery system already facing severe expense pressures. Often, these freestanding emergency rooms are really designed to shift patients to a hospital that is not conve-nient to the patients home area. They are a way for those hospitals to gain market share outside of their primary areas. For each individual it is a personal choice matching the critical nature of his or her injury to the most cost-effective delivery system. It should be made with careful consideration not only of the wait time, but what happens when services beyond the scope of the freestanding emer-gency room are needed and the patient must be transferred to a full-service inpatient hospital? Will patients have a choice and be able to use their doctors and specialists? Great care is right here in our community now. The recent $13.6 million dollar emergency room renovation and expansion at Palm Beach Gardens Med-ical Center has tripled the space in which our full-service acute care hospi-tal can provide emergency care to meet the growing needs of the northern Palm Beach communities. Patients who come to our emergency department can be assured that they will be able to also receive in-patient services at the same location. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center performed the first open heart surgery in Palm Beach County. Since then, close to 15,000 open heart procedures have been done at our hospital. We also have a medical staff of 400 doctors in a broad variety of specialties. many of which are on call to respond to emergency condi-tions. In addition, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center publishes our emer-gency room wait times on our website, PBGMC.com. Want to skip the waiting room all together?

Pam had promised herself that this time she would stay out of it. But somehow her daughters knew just how to keep her engaged in their arguments. This time, her oldest, Emily, was furious that her younger sister, Becca, had planned a family vacation the weekend Emilys daughter was graduating from high school. Emily insisted she had repeatedly mentioned the date to Becca, and had discussed all the details of the elaborate graduation party she was planning. Becca swore up and down that she didnt realize the dates overlapped, and insisted it was the only week her family would be able to book a cruise because of soccer and camp schedules. Emily said she didnt believe a word Becca had to say, calling Becca selfish and inconsiderate. Emily harped on Pam to agree with her that going on a cruise mattered more to Becca than family loyalties. The two sisters had been at odds for years. The tensions seemed to escalate when Beccas husband Teds business took off. Although Becca and Ted were not the type to brag about their successes, Emily was having a hard time accepting the obvious step-up in their lifestyle. Becca had voiced hurt and dismay that Emily had frequently refused invitations to come to her new home for dinner. Emily had her own version of the events, and had insisted the invitations were afterthoughts and Becca always showed preferences to her friends at the country club. It seemed to Pam that they were always calling upon her to take sides. No matter how diplomatic she tried to be, one of her daughters invariably was hurt. If she dared to ask one to consider the others point of view, she was accused of showing favoritism. And if she ever attempted to intervene by making suggestions about how they might resolve their differences, watch out!As parents, we certainly start out with the best of intentions. We listen to the experts and pore the parenting guide-books convinced well do it right. Well raise each of our children with the right amount of love, care and discipline. And, in return, they will appreciate our efforts, and love us back unconditionally. Oh, if only it worked that way. All of our children are unique individuals who strive to define themselves as separate and apart from their siblings. They have very defined personalities, interests and abilities, and view the world from their own vantage points. Although most parents usually take steps to be equal and fair and to promote harmoni-ous relationships among their children, it is not in their power to orchestrate the outcome. It is really up to the siblings to determine if they are motivated to adapt and get along with each other. Major life events throughout childhood help define the level of closeness or distance that family members experi-ence. And milestones during adult life „ leaving home, getting married, major ill-nesses, career successes or failures, etc. „ have a bearing on whether siblings remain close, or rivalries fester. The choice of a spouse has an especially loaded impact on the sibling bond. In the best of circumstances, the new spouse can soften friction and add a tre-mendous amount to the extended family harmony. But, needless to say, this new person can bring a host of unfortu-nate competitions and insecurities to the mix. There can be jealousies about who makes the most money, owns the bigger house or raises the smartest child, etc. Parents must be acutely sensitive to these areas of discomfort, and must be very diplomatic in order to avoid step-ping into the landmines. It is not uncom-mon for our children to test our loyalties or try to draw us in where we dont belong. If we are brutally honest, we must admit to ourselves that each of our chil-dren brings out very different parts of us. We often understand and relate to them very differently. We may unintentionally promote the resentments and rivalries that we promised ourselves we would not let happen. Our children have anten-nas up to observe the way we dole out our attention, compliments or criticism. It is not uncommon for a young person to carry a hurt or injustice for many years. Because, much of the time, our children are watching to see if we compare them unfairly or treat them different-ly, it is important to make a definitive statement to them about how we will approach important family issues. It will probably be helpful for Pam to take her-self out of the fray and to consider any biases she still maintains, so she doesnt unintentionally perpetuate family fric-tions. Pam should probably acknowledge to her daughters that maintaining a rela-tionship with each of them is important to her and that it feels very uncomfort-able for her to be in the middle. It might help to add that she loves them both very much, but now realizes she has probably overstepped her bounds with some of her comments, (and she regrets her part in any of the upsets). Going forward, she will be taking steps to remove herself from issues that are not hers to resolve. If they come to her with their concerns, she will be an impartial listener, but will not in any way pick one over the other. She should communicate caring and sup-port, but state in a clear, emphatic mes-sage that she is counting on them to come up with solutions on their own. As we know, attempting to change any entrenched family interaction is often met with uneasiness or resistance, but over time, committing to a course should make the difference.

The workshops are being presented onsite in Jupiter for Scripps Florida staff, students and faculty. The initial Banner Center workshops will focus on the business side of the life sciences industry, a topic of strong interest to many postdoc-toral fellows and Ph.D.-seeking grad-uate students attending the Scripps Research Kellogg School of Science and Technology. The Business Basics for the Life Sciences IndustryŽ four-part workshop series explores the career pathways open to scientists, the fundamentals of starting a life sciences company, and good manu-facturing practices in FDA-regulated industries. Vanessa Saunders, Ph.D., a Scripps Florida postdoctoral research asso-ciate and workshop participant, is an active member of BioFloridas Industry Connections Network, a group that helped arrange the Banner Center training at Scripps Research. Banner Center workshops will intro-duce individuals like myself to the business aspects of bringing science to the public,Ž Ms. Saunders said in a statement. Personally, I am very interested in moving science, tech-nology and ideas out of the lab. I want to know my research will lead to something tangible that will benefit the public.Ž The workshops are examples of several education modules developed by the Banner Center for Life Sciences. The Banner Center, funded through Workforce Florida Inc., serves as a statewide resource for workforce edu-cation focused on the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device sectors, and its customizable pro-grams are being deployed across the state in venues ranging from offices to the classrooms and laboratories of Palm Beach State and the Banner Centers academic partners. Workshop presenters offer a unique combination of industry experience gained locally and nationally. Robert Nagro, a corporate executive, invest-ment banker and business consultant, has played a leadership role in life sci-ences sector startups and has helped raise approximately $60 million in venture funding.

A14 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Suite 155 Harbour Financial Center 2401 PGA Boulevard s Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410The Perfect Fusion of The Contemporary and The Classic www.ParasolPatio.com Phone: 561.623.0509 Fax: 561.623.0609 Why would a tobacco jar from the 19th century be shaped like a lady in a long, full dress? Tobacco jars were made in many unexpected shapes, and there are many figural tobacco-jar collectors today. Most jars were made from 1850 to 1900 in Bohemia and nearby countries. They were made of majolica, bisque, pottery, wood, even bronze. Most com-mon today are heads.Ž Life-like heads of men, women, children, ethnic groups, animals and even a rare fish were made. Full figuralsŽ were made that looked like 19th-century ladies, historic figures, peasants, sailors and animals in suits or dresses. There was humor seen in many of the jars, some very subtle. The lady in a full skirt looks demure and proper, but her ankles are showing below the hem of her skirt. She is flirting. In those days, an ankle was considered erotic. Today, it takes more than a lifted skirt; girls wear ankle bracelets or tattoos to show off a pretty ankle. Figural jars cost hundreds of dollars today. Q: I have a pair of heavy bookends with figures of a Chinese boy and girl. The boy is standing on a couple of books and looking over the top of another book. The girl is sitting on two books and reading a book. One bookend says Fashioned by RonsonŽ and the other is labeled Ronson All Metal Art Wares.Ž It also says Royal Old Gold.Ž The fig-ures are gold, and the books are black with gold edges. Can you tell me some-thing about them and what they are worth? A: Ronson was founded in New York by Louis V. Aronson in 1886. The company moved to New Jersey in 1887. Ronson is best known for its cigar and cigarette lighters, but it also made ash-trays, bookends, busts, desk sets, fraternal and religious items, lamps, medals, picture frames, toys, and many other things. Your bookends were made in the 1930s. Similar bookends were made with Dutch chil-dren. Zippo Manufac-turing Co. bought most of the Ronson assets in 2010. Value of your set: $125. Q: I have several pieces of my mothers Guardian Ware cook-ware, including three triangle pots with lids and a large roaster pan with a lid. What are the pieces worth? A: Guardian Ware, also called Guardian Service cookware, was made by Cen-tury Metalcraft Corp. of Los Angeles from the 1930s until 1956, when the factory burned down. Pieces were sold at in-home parties the way Tupperware was later sold. Guardian Ware was made of heavy-duty hammered aluminum. Before World War II, the wares high-domed lids were metal. Because of metal shortages during the war, the company start-ed making oven-proof glass lids. Your triangle pots were designed to be used as a set on a trivet that sat on a burner. That way, three different veg-etables could be cooked at the same time. Guard-ian Ware is a popular collectible today. Piec-es sell online for $5 to $150. Q: My in-laws left an Abraham Lincoln picture to us, and were won-dering what its worth. Its mounted in a carved oval wooden frame. The president is on the right sitting in a chair facing left and holding an open book in his lap. Mrs. Lin-coln is in a chair on the left and is facing right holding a closed book in her left hand. The Lin-colns oldest son, Robert, is standing behind his mothers chair. Their youngest son, Tad, is standing close to his father. A portrait of son Willie, who died in 1862, is hanging on the wall behind the president. Theres a small typed memo on the back of the picture. It says: Engd by A. Robin, NY, Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1869 by G.W. Massee in the Clerks office of the District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.Ž What is the picture worth, and how can I sell it? Should we reframe it? A: What you own is a print made from an engraving. After Abraham Lin-coln was assassinated in 1865, the public clamored for Lincoln memorial sou-venirs. Augustus Robin, a New York engraver, used a Matthew Brady pho-tograph of Lincoln and Tad as a model to create a steel engraving of the family. The engraving was used by G.W. Mas-see, a Philadelphia printer, to make cop-ies that could be sold to the public. You own one of Massees prints. Many were probably made, but its not likely that many have survived for 150 years. The frame may be original, so dont reframe it. If you want to sell it, you can try online. It might sell for about $100. Tip: To clean old paper, try talcum powder. Take a soft brush or powder puff, sprinkle on the powder, leave for an hour, and brush it off. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Landmark at the Gardens When choosing that new home, think about long-term lifestyle heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF The motivation for a homeowner to move is always created by lifestyle changes. For some it may be an expan-sion of their family, others a loss of a family member or even changes within the family. Lately, I have been working with a family that has three children. One is already in college; the second will be going to college in one year. They currently live in a very large home within a community that offers several activities for all ages, but they are finding themselves spending more time outside the community then inside. With school and sporting activi-ties, they are constantly running from one event to the next and have little time to enjoy all the amenities that are offered. When we originally met at their home, they told me they were looking for a smaller home with less to maintain, but a larger property so their third son, who will remain at home for the next four years, could play and practice sports with his friends outside in the yard. They also wanted a home that would offer a cen-tralized location. This can often be a dif-ficult combination as many of the homes that they would consider would be in the Palm Beach Gardens area, where land is difficult to find unless you increase sig-nificantly with the price point. After great consideration, my clients have realized that there is really much more to selecting a home and community than simply just knowing that they would like a four-bedroom, four-bath-room home with 4,000 square feet. While knowing your criteria and budget are two of the most important fac-tors when searching for a new home, people must understand how a lifestyle can change „ where they are now and where they will be five or even 10 years from now. These clients in particular have realized that they no longer use the golf, tennis and pool at their club as much as they once did. And that buying land for only four more years of athletics may not be the best investment when their son spends most of his time at the school and community athletic complexes. What they have realized they must ask themselves is that with three boys in their late teens and the two of them soon to be empty nesters „ what would keep their boys wanting to return home to visit Mom and Dad? What they realized is that they may like to find a home with access to the water and boating. This may be fun for them to explore, and after long discus-sions with their three sons, who never really spent much time on the water, everyone had an interest in what this great part of the world offers „ easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway and deep water adventures. A home on the water offers unlimited activities for all ages, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, a good long-term investment and much more. Currently we are searching for the perfect waterfront property and we have already narrowed our search. The home size and floor plan are important, but they have realized that the location and lifestyle are really what they are all looking for long-term. It will only be a matter of time until we locate the perfect property. It is always exciting for me to assist clients in under-standing what they are looking for „ and then finding it! Lifestyles change and that is why we are so fortunate to live in such a special place. Whether you are looking for golf, tennis, boating or family-friendly communi-ties „ we have it all. It is just a matter of knowing where you want to be for your lifestyle. Q „ Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates.

Texas hold em always breaks my heart. As much as I love cards, I can never get the game just right. For years, I thought it was plain bad luck. I never seemed to be dealt the cards I need-ed, and I was forever betting on the wrong hand „ bluffing when I should have folded, dropping out early when I should have staked everything. Only recently did I discover what I had been doing wrong: I liked to bet on the unknown future cards in the hope that I could make my hand work. I might have been sitting on nothing, but Id still throw in my chips on the off chance that a good card was coming. On a recent Saturday night, curled up on the couch with the man Im seeing, I flipped through the channels until we came across a high-stakes poker championship. The game was down to the final bet as two players competed for a multi-million dollar pot. The player on the right decided to go all in; the player on the left matched him. Both men stood, and the audi-ence stood with them. The lights in the TV studio dimmed and the music slowed, suddenly full of tense percus-sive beats. The players revealed their cards. The player on the left, the reigning champion with a sizable pot, held a low pair that matched a third card in the community pile. Three-of-a-kind. The player on the right, younger and more nervous-looking, held two dia-monds. Among the community cards, two more diamonds sparkled. A near-flush. He needed just one more card, one more diamond, to win the hand and the championship. But he was in for heartbreak. The dealer turned the final card to reveal a spade and the players face fell. In holding out for something better, he ended up losing everything. Which is, in many ways, a parable for relationships. I have these lovely female friends, single women in their mid-to-late 30s who seem to be for-ever searching for something better, always believing that the winning card is bound to turn up. These are the women Lori Gottlieb called out in her book Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough.Ž Ms. Gottlieb, herself near 40 and still unmarried, wrote about how women often chase an elusive idea of Mr. Right „ to our detriment. In her book, she encouraged women to con-sider a range of suitors, especially the ones who are solid mate material but who perhaps lack qualities the women once considered crucial (chiseled abs, soulful eyes, a plush bank account). In Texas hold em terms: Better to bet high on a low pair in the hole than to go all in hoping for good cards to come. Which is perhaps one of the qualities I appreciate most about the man Im dating, who turns out to be an excellent poker player. He knows bet-ter than to hold out for an anticipated card, some prom-ise of a future good thing. He takes what he has in his hand, and if its workable, if he thinks it might be a winner, he goes all in. And thats something I can bet on.

A24 WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER So near and yet so farIn general, it is not wise to double for penalties unless you think you can defeat the opponents by at least two tricks. Aside from the fact that you might not get one of the tricks you are counting on, or that your double might help declarer find the winning line of play, there is the simple matter of the scoring itself. For example, lets say you double an opponent in four hearts, not vulnerable, expecting to set the contract one trick. If youre right, you gain 50 points, scoring 100 points instead of the 50 youd have scored by passing. But if you are wrong and he makes four hearts doubled, you lose an extra 170 points because of your double. So, in trying to gain 50 points, you might lose 170, which means you are giving odds of about 3.5-to-1 that the contract will fail. Consider this deal from a duplicate game where West made a very close double of two spades. This was an especially risky double because, if Wests hopes failed to material-ize, he would be doubling the opponents into game. West led a diamond, and East took dummys king with the ace. East very correctly returned a trump, won by West with the jack. Back came another diamond, won by East with the jack. At this point, it was no longer possible to defeat the contract. With a diamond return, the defenders would finish with three trump tricks and two diamonds. With any other return, declarer also would finish with eight tricks, eventually discarding his third dia-mond on dummys ace of hearts. So South made two spades doubled for a score of 670 points. However, West could have defeated the contract and scored 200 points had he cashed his ace of trumps after winning Easts trump return with the jack at trick two. He would then lead the deuce of diamonds to Easts jack at trick four. East would next cash the queen of diamonds and continue with a diamond, promoting Wests queen of spades as the setting trick. Close doubles require tight defense. Q

Its better, because one doesnt try so hard.Ž Her career as a gymnast comes in handy. Im grateful for the gymnastics. You know how to land, how to kick, how to fly through the air without injury. You learn when to be tense, when to relax and learn what muscles to use,Ž she said. Yes, she knows the role, but Ms. Rigby said audiences should not expect to see the same thing theyve seen before. This is her final outing as Peter, she said. The reaction were getting from people is really different and wonderful. When it has a new cast, it takes on a dif-ferent personality,Ž she said. Brent Bar-rett is our Captain Hook and he brings an experience and a passion and that is very different.Ž The cast is not all that is different.We actually have added quite a few new elements, and the show is two acts instead of three,Ž she said. There have been some concessions to time, though. The only thing is that Ive taken out is that I used to jump from the dog-house to the bed, but with the constant eight shows a week, I kept saying, How come my knees hurt?Ž she said. Most Baby Boomers grew up with Mary Martins televised portrayal of Peter Pan. But Ms. Rigby said she had never seen the musical until around 1980, when she saw Sandy Duncan in the role. For Ms. Rigby, theres nothing odd about having a woman play a boy. I was very much a tomboy,Ž she said. J.M. Barrie cast a woman for the role when he presented the show in London. It probably had something to do with child labor laws. Its just done that way, and there have been movies and pro-ductions that have been done with boys. This particular version has been done by a girl,Ž she said. So what sets this show apart?For one thing, with the lighting and effects, its hard to see the wires. Theyre coming away saying, Oh, my God, its so different and so magical,Ž she said. The bonus?Seeing Mary Martin and seeing Sandy and seeing the version I did, theyre coming away with a memory that theyre now sharing generation after generation. Its like youre getting to share a great memory with two or three generations. Its very magical for them. Its a memory-making moment that Im creating,Ž she said. That applies to her grandchildren, too. They get an up-close look at the methods behind the magic. My 8-year-old (grandson) flew last night. His name is Jude. Usually, all the kids get to fly. Its magical for me to get to see them. The stars and the drops are still up there and you know how theyre going to react,Ž she said. Her youngest grandson, age 2, identifies her as Peter. Im dressed in jeans and a T-shirt in the back yard, and he said, Hi, Peter Pan, and my granddaughter said, My nana is Peter Pan and The Cat in the Hat.Ž How is it possible to top that?For her finale, Ms. Rigby flies out over the audience. Its the best curtain call ever. You take your bow, and then all of a sudden, I get to see everyones face right before it happens.Ž Q PETER PANFrom page 22 >>What: “Peter Pan” >>When: Aug. 1-5 >>Where: The Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.>>Cost: $25 and up >>Info: 832-7469 or Kravis.org If you go COURTESY PHOTO Cathy Rigby first played Peter Pan in 1986.

Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A new contact opens some doors. Thats the good news. But theres a caution involved: Be sure you protect your rights to your work before show-ing it to anyone. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A former colleague might seek to resume a working partnership. Ask yourself if you need it. If yes, get more information. If no, respectfully decline the request. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Good times dominate your aspect. So why not have a party to celebrate a loved ones success? And do invite that special person you want to know better. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The shy side of the Sea Goat soon gives way to your more assertive self. This should help you when it comes time to speak up for yourself and your achievements. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new period of stability will help you deal with some recently reworked plans. Once you get your cur-rent task done, you can devote more time to personal matters. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things are finally much more stable these days, so you can restart the pro-cess of meeting your well-planned goals with fewer chances of interruption or delay. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A strong social whirl brings a new round of good times to fun-loving Rams and Ewes. Cupid also is busy aiming arrows at single Lambs hoping for a heart-to-heart encounter. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A romantic incident could take a more serious turn if the Divine Bovine considers meeting Cupids challenge. Meanwhile, a professional opportunity is also about to turn up. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A bit of hardheaded realism could be just what the Twins need at this emotion-ally challenged time. Face the facts as they are, not as you want them to be. Good luck. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Many opportunities open up. But you need to be aware of their actual pros and cons. Check them all out and make your choice from those that offer more of what you seek.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2012 A33 ++++ Is it worth $10? YesWow, what a great film.The Dark Knight RisesŽ represents everything Hollywood can possibly do right: Great storytelling, exciting, well-edited action, solid performances, a rousing score and a thematic depth that perfectly reflects concerns of society today. Its director, Christopher Nolan „ who also made the other two films in this trilogy, Batman BeginsŽ and The Dark KnightŽ „ operates on a superior level to nearly every other director working today, and we are the beneficiaries of his immense, marvelous talent. Picking up eight years after The Dark Knight,Ž Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is a recluse blamed for the death of for-mer district attorney Harvey Dent. His butler Alfred (Michael Caine) still cares for him, but with Gotham City safe from crime and there being no reason for him to suit up as Batman, Wayne is without purpose. He should be careful what he wishes for. Not only does a cat burglar named Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) steal pearls from Wayne Manor, but theres also a hulking madman named Bane (Tom Hardy) who wears a breathing mask and is determined to destroy Gotham. For help Wayne/Batman leans on Police Commissioner Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman), President of Wayne Enterpris-es Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), and a virtuous young cop named John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Wayne also must balance new love interest Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard), who invested in an energy project with Wayne and is concerned about the results. This is a layered story with a number of moving parts, but not for a second does Nolan (InceptionŽ), who co-wrote the script with his brother Jonathan Nolan, appear out of control. In contrast, as the story evolves we only get more enraptured with the characters and con-flicts, to the point where its genuinely hard to imagine how Batman and allies will fight back against Bane and his plan to destroy the city. The action, brisk editing (even at 164 minutes), costumes, set design and music are top notch, but what will really hit you are the performances. Michael Caine made me tear up on more than one occasion as his Alfred pleads with Bruce to remain safe. Watch Anne Hathaway when Selina gets caught stealing the pearls „ her facial expression changes in an instant, and its subtle and beautiful to watch. Tom Hardy is fierce and impos-ing as Bane, and (thankfully) theres no issue in understanding what hes saying, which was a concern for those who saw advanced footage. With the greatness of The Dark Knight Rises,Ž its not a stretch to say these Batman films comprise the best movie trilogy of all time. For this distinc-tion all three films need to be great with no definitive weak links (The Godfather III,Ž for example), and each needs to surpass the excellence that preceded it. Whats more, the three films need to be of the same storyline, not just random new adventures of old characters. You could make an argument for the Lord of the RingsŽ trilogy being superior (I would disagree), but thats about it. The anticipation one feels going into The Dark Knight RisesŽ is matched only by the exultation inspired by its conclu-sion. For comparison, The AvengersŽ was a fun, exciting ride; RisesŽ is both an exciting ride and a superb filmmak-ing accomplishment thats on level with Oscar winners and other high-minded fare. Yes, it is that spectacular. Q Beasts of the Southern Wild ++ (Quvenzhan Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easte rly) W ith Hurricane Katrina about to hit her Delta home and her father (Henry) in poor health, young Hushpuppy (Wallis) strives to find her long lost moth-er. Its a poetic, powerful film, but also one thats hard to enjoy. Some of the decisions made by adults are questionable at best and stupid at worst. Still, you always feel for the little girl. Rated PG-13.Ice Age: Continental Drift ++ (Voices of Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo) Mammoth Manny (Romano) is separated from his family when the continents begin to take shape and must find his way home along with sloth Sid (Leguizamo) and saber-toothed tiger Diego (Leary), battling sea creatures and a fierce pirate (Peter Dinklage) along the way. It has some amusing moments and is enjoyable, but weve seen better animated fare this summer (Madagascar 3Ž) and the 3D is nothing special. Rated PG. To Rome With Love +++ (Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page) Writer/director Woody Allens lat-est comedy follows different love stories in Rome, some with happier endings than others. Its not consistently funny, but the story, which is pure fantasy, is creative and engaging. Rated R. Q CAPSULES LATEST FILMS‘The Dark Knight Rises’ o t w p a w i dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Bane is often shot from a low angle, which creates the impression that he is a large, impos-ing gure. The Lighthouse ArtCenter and its board member Cathy Helowicz are proud to present the extraordinary art of Joshua Silver Banks. Josh Banks, a young man tran-scending multiple challenges, expresses himself and shares his joyous exuberance of life through his color-ful works of art. He was diagnosed with autism around age 2, and now at age 24, he does not speak, but through his artwork Josh is finding his voice. After teaching Josh therapeutic riding lessons years ago, it was such a joy to reunite with him with through his artwork. Ive been very involved with the Light-house ArtCenter for six years now and it just felt fantastic to showcase his artwork. Im so proud and amazed at his creativity and am happy that he has found another outlet for his energy,Ž said Ms. Helowicz, who taught therapeutic riding to Josh. She arranged for Josh to exhibit at the Lighthouse ArtCenter and sponsored the exhibition, on view through July 26. The artwork, like Josh, is full of energy and continuous movement. Vivid colors, strokes that cover the page, seemingly at random, are curiously uniform in design. He works on a large piece for about two weeks, while smaller ones take a few days. His first real opportunity as an emerging artist came during a recent show hosted by the town of Jupiter. The day before this show ended, Josh was invited to exhibit one large piece at the presti-gious Arts on the Park gallery in down-town Lakeland, as part of a show by artists age 20-29. Joshs work was voted the most popular piece. Classes for special-needs children and adults are offered at the Lighthouse Art-Centers School of Art, and art instructors are also sent into the community to teach special-needs students at various facilities in Palm Beach and Martin counties. For more information on the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum & School of Art, and its exhibitions, programs and events, visit LighthouseArts.org or call 746-3101. Lighthouse ArtCenter is located at 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with admission free for members and $5 for non-members ages 13 and up.

It was announced last week that the Pampas Grille, a chain of Brazilian churrascaria-style restau-rants, will open in McCormick and Schmicks 10,000-square-foot former space. Surf-and-turf is their noted s kewer. The menus boast more than 15 types of fresh fish and seafoods and meats cooked on spits. Both a fixed-price and ala carte menus will be available. Lunch will be geared to business types. Next to City Cellar upstairs, look for the opening of Mojito Latin Cuisine & Bar. A Latin-fusion menu, with tapas and a tra-ditional menu, is planned. A mojito bar, featuring more than 15 types of the popular Cuban rum drink, also will have daiqui-ris and other Caribe-inspired cocktails. A lounge and live Cuban bands add to the supper-club like atmosphere in the 8,000-square-foot space. Inside the new bowling-lounge-enter-tainment center, Revolutions Bowling, Bar & Grille, the Grille is set to be a luxury sports barŽ with casual fare and some regional offerings. Set between Macys and Pub-lix, the bowling spot will have 20 lanes, with luxe leather couches, a high-tech scoring system, and more than two dozen LED sports screens, video gam-ing and live music. A VIP room and special events rooms for team build-ing functions also will be available to groups. The Frank Entertainment Com-panies own more than 35 complexes similar to this between Florida and New York. Mellow Mushroom, a pizza chain, is slated to take over the old Kona Grill space on Okeechobee Boulevard at CityPlace in the fall. The West Palm location will be its second in Palm Beach County; the first is in Delray Beach on U.S. 1. The Mellow Mush-room chain began in Georgia as a col-lege pizza joint near Georgia Tech, and expanded into several states. Though franchised, each Mellow Mushroom is independently owned. The restaurants are set for fall and winter openings, according to a City-Place spokeswoman. Is Houstons coming to Jupiter? Rumor has it that Houstons will build a restaurant in the expansion of Jupiters River-walk at Indian-town Road and U.S. 1. Weve been unable to confirm so far, and whether this unit will be under the brands new name Hillstone. The parent company, Hillstone, is based in Beverly Hills, Calif., and runs a number of other restaurants, including Gulfstream, Palm Beach Grill, Wood-mont Grill, East Hampton Grill and Rutherford Grill. Over the last three years, the company changed the names of a number of Houston restaurants. While the com-pany spokespeople said it was a strategy to re-brand and keep current in their regional markets, others in the industry saw the move as a way to avoid federal menu/nutrition labeling laws for com-panies with more than 20 restaurants in their group. Grand prize for Breakers sommelier: Congratulations to Virginia Philip, who has led The Breakers to numerous awards with her wine program and lists. The latest is the Grand Award for a res-taurant, shared among only 75 restaurants around the world and given by the Wine Spectator.

B2 healthy living AUGUST 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYInterval training builds endurance I nterval training is an important part of aerobic exercise. If youre a walker or a runner, run intervals once a week. Walking and running build endurance by strengthening your cardiovas-cular system. Doing interval training once a week enhances your endurance by dra-matically increasing the amount of blood your heart pumps every time it beats. (This is known as your cardiac stroke volume.) Inter-val training also increases the amount of oxygen you can take in on each breath. (This is known as your respiratory vital capacity.) The result is that you have noticeably increased speed and increased reserves when you need a prolonged burst of energy. The same principles apply for any type of aerobic activity. The interval system is easy to apply. For example, if youre a swimmer, you can do inter-val training with laps. If you ride a bike, you can do intervals with timed sprints. There many books and magazine articles available to help you add inter-val training to your aerobics program. If youre doing aerobics exercise three times per week, you could use one of those sessions for interval training. Interval training is very powerful and the most important thing is to build up gradually. To begin, you need to have a good base, meaning you do aerobic activity for at least 30 minutes. Using running as an example, you might be running 10-minute miles in at a fast race pace.Ž Ten minutes per mile is 2.5 minutes per quarter-mile. On your interval day, warm up by lightly jogging 1 mile. Then run four quarter-miles at a pace a bit faster than your race pace. In this example, you could run four quarter-miles at 2:25 or 2:20 per quarter. Then finish by lightly jogging for another mile. Over time, your interval pace gets faster. You could do intervals with half-miles, three-quarters of a mile, or even a mile, if your weekly mileage supports such an interval distance. Most of us will see remarkable benefits by doing quarter-mile or occasional half-mile intervals. One obvious result is that your resting pulse drops like a stone, because your heart is being trained to pump more blood each time it contracts. In this way, you save wear and tear on your heart. Owing to your hearts stroke volume, your heart beats less during the course of the day to provide the amount of blood you need flowing to your tissues. The takeaway is that your heart will last longer because youre doing intense vigorous exer-cise. Thats a pretty remarkable result. The bottom line is that interval training makes you stronger and fast-er. Your heart and lungs get a terrific workout with each interval training session. Theres a big payoff for this once-aweek activity. Q Dr. Michael PapaCHIROPRACTOR(561) 744-7373www.papachiro.com Chiropractic care and cardiovascular exerciseRegular chiropractic care supports all your exercise activities. The converse is true as well. Regular exercise helps support chiropractic care.In order to get the most out of the valuable time we spend exercising, we want to ensure that our musculoskeletal system is working effectively and ef ciently. Bones, joints and muscles need to be able to go through a full range of motion in order to exercise properly.

B4 healthy living AUGUST 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYU.S. politics, divorce and football W hen I inform someone that I am a divorce lawyer the most common response is, Oh, my God, I dont know how you do it.Ž This response is indicative of the fact that most people, if not all people, associate divorce with acrimony and ill will. This perception is not completely wrong; divorce can indeed be a messy busi-ness. There are a number of gen-eral and hopefully inspirational truths that I tell my cli-ents, which include: The divorce can be used as an oppor-tunity to focus on the next chapter of their life, and it is possible to get excited about the change; as long as everyone is healthy the rest will work out (if applicable); and however difficult the divorce is, it will end. Usually the most important part of these reassurances is that their case will in fact end at some point. While it is true that there are some divorce cases that seem never to end, they eventually do. This is the primary difference between divorce cases and our government and the political process. While all divorce cases eventually end, the acrimony, ill will, and paralysis so prevalent in our political system today appears to go on forever. There are some profound differences between the difficulty of managing a marriage and a family; and that of managing our government. There are also some profound similarities. In discuss-ing some of these similarities, I would beg you to first consider the political campaign alongside the courting pro-cess. An experience that most of us have had, or at least certainly seen on televi-sion, is the human comedy that is the first date. There is no question that most people approach this event with some trepidation, doing the best they can to make a good impression. Sometimes this can involve the purchase of flowers, or perhaps a bottle of wine. There is the endless dance of trying on different clothes, getting the right cologne. You get the picture. One can only imagine the politicians efforts at making that first campaign speech. They may not be bringing us flowers, but I assure you they are paying a lot of attention to their outfits. Like a first date they are anxious, and truly hoping that we will like them.Ž Flashing back to our actual dating hypothetical, the first date went swim-mingly well. Our couple has been dating for a year now, and its getting serious. At this point the couple has had the req-uisite deep discussions about life, reli-gion, and their hopes and dreams. They have now expanded their social lives with the friends and family of the other. Both people have started to consider, maybe this is the one. This might work. The proposal is made, the request is accepted, and a date is set for marriage. The candidate also now has been campaigning for a year. She has built an organization around herself and has truly perfected her campaign rhetoric and stump speeches. She has used every available media to communicate her positions on the issues, the life she wants for us, reli-gion, along with her hopes and dreams. There is an air of expectancy around the campaign. The election is held, our candidate is elected, and a date is set to take office, and that is where the simi-larities end. When people get married, by and large there is a grace period of reason-able congeniality before things start to get difficult. This is often known as the honeymoon stage. In politics, immedi-ately upon taking office, politicians are thrown into a virtual tsunami of parti-sanship, pressure, special interests. In politics there is no honeymoon. The reasons for the continual acrimony in our political system are rela-tively simple. In order to get elected you need money. In order to get the kind of money you need to get elected, you need people with money to give it to you. In order to get people with money to give you money you must either represent their interests, or be willing to. It often seems to me that the two major political parties in this country are like huge college football teams. People rabidly cheer and advocate for their team, hardly ever really knowing the players on the other team, and are unwilling to consider the others point of view. If the referees rule in your teams favor they are good, and if they rule against your team they are bad. Seems like the publics view of the Supreme Court. Certainly a more nuanced approach to government might make our par-ticipation in it as enjoyable as a win-ning season, and less like the trauma of divorce. Q Kenneth A.

B6 AUGUST 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Dr. Joseph CostelloLASER MEDICA 400 VILLAGE SQUARE CROSSING, SUITE #1 PALM BEACH GARDENS 2511 S. DIXIE HIGHWAY, WEST PALM BEACH(561) 882-1430LaserMedicaFlorida.com H is clinical expertise and genuine care for his patients makes Dr. Joseph Costello highly sought after as both an educator for his peers in the field of laser therapy and a trusted doctor for his patients around the world. After a number of years pioneering the teaching and use of laser therapy for pain relief, Dr. Costello has opened two new offices to devote his time to helping relieve patients of their chronic pain. Because of what we do, we attract patients from around the world who suffer with pain and have failed all forms of traditional treat-ment. Our goal is to assist each patient in achieving and maintaining longterm results and therefore we meticulously han-dle each and every aspect of care, treatment and scheduling. An example of that is the use of high intensity laser therapy. Unlike all other forms of therapy, high intensity laser therapy (HILT) actu-ally causes human tissue to heal at an accelerated rate. It does not mask pain or relieve it temporarily. The results that we are able to achieve are usually long term. If we consider the patient who has suffered from back pain for many years, we know that the HILT works equally well on chronic conditions as it does for new acute injuries. Not only will the laser decrease the pain and inflammation that plagues the chronic back pain patient, but it will also heal and increase the tensile strength of ligaments, tendons, and even the outer layers if the disc. There simply is no other form of treatment that can effectively and safely achieve these results. The robotic therapeutic laser system allows Dr. Costello to adjust the qual-ity and quantity of the laser beam in order to custom tuneŽ the laser to the patients specific condition. This highly advanced technology is successful in treating both acute and chronic conditions that have failed tra-ditional treatment approaches. It is recommended for treatment of arthritis, back pain, disk herniation, headaches, knee and hip pain, neck pain, nerve pain, neuropathy, sciatica, spinal stenosis, TMJ dysfunction and toenail fungus. HILT therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects. It is painless and can be used to treat conditions from head to toe. It is for these reasons that Dr. Costello and Laser Medica utilize this most advanced therapy, which is now available in Palm Beach County.

You will be pleased to know that there is a safe and natural technique to do this called Mesotherapy. This technique was developed back in 1952 by a French doc-tor named Michel Pistor. Meso-therapy is quite widely practiced in Europe. Simply stated, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive technique where-by safe homeo-pathic medica-tions and vitamins are injected into the middle layer of skin known as the Mesoderm. Specific areas of the body are treated such as the forehead, the cheeks and the eyes. Mesotherapy can also be used in other areas of the body such as the abdomen or legs to help with toning and the reduction of cellu-lite. Since the medication is targeted at precise locations, smaller amounts can be used. Wrinkles often improve imme-diately. Homeopathic medications are safe and generally free of side effects. The amount of active ingredient in this class of medications is infinitesimally small. The principle behind this is to allow the medicine to stimulate the body to heal itself. No toxins or fillers are used. At the initial visit, areas of concern will be discussed. A treatment plan will be outlined. In cases of cellulite, mapping will be performed to define the extent of treatment. The area will be cleaned and disinfected with alcohol. Some cases will require only two to three visits. Other cases may require more visits depending upon the sever-ity and number of areas to be treated. If you have put off rejuvenation techniques in the past because you were concerned about toxic medicines or fillers or if have tried those procedures and cannot tolerate those medicines, you may wish to consider Mesotherapy as an alternative.

According to a new survey of Consumer Reports readers, unem-ployed respondents were more likely to say they had trouble falling and staying asleep than those with jobs: 69 percent and 59 percent, respectively. Employment status aside, the most common problem cited among all respondents was trouble staying asleep, reported by 57 percent of Consumer Reports 26,451 subscribers. Of those, one in three woke up three or more times during a typical night. When problem sleepers were asked what was keeping them up at night, work-related stressŽ was the most common response (47 percent) followed by health prob-lems (28 percent) and financial woes (22 percent). For most people, getting to sleep isnt as much of an issue as staying asleep is,Ž said Jamie Hirsh, senior associate editor for Consumer Reports. Some readers found great success with medication and others said that changes in their lifestyle helped them to sleep through the night.Ž The complete results of Consumer Reports survey about sleep prob-lems and treatments, along with find-ings from its new survey on mattress satisfaction, can be found online at www.ConsumerReports.org and in the August issue of Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports survey also revealed that women and obese people were more likely to report sleep prob-lems than others. While almost 60 percent of respondents fell into the insomniacŽ category, the survey also delivered some good news: Most prob-lem sleepers reported finding at least one sleep treatment that helped.Treating sleep problemsConsumer Reports analyzed the responses of more than 15,500 people who reported having problems sleep-ing three or more nights per week, including those who used medication and those who tried alternative meth-ods to treat sleep problems and rated their effectiveness. Prescription sleep aids were found to be the most help-ful. But a number of people who tried alternative methods, such as regular exercise, meditation, yoga and deep-breathing exercises, said the methods helped a lot.Ž This data suggests, at least for some insomniacs, that help is within reach without the side effects of medication. Forty percent of problem sleepers said they had, at some point, tried over-the-counter sleep aids, and 30 percent took prescription medications. Newer prescription sleeping pills, such as zolpidem (Ambien and generic) and eszopiclone (Lunesta), and older sleep drugs called benzodiazepines, such as temazepam (Restoril and generic), received some of the highest ratings for helpfulness by survey respondents. Almost half of readers who had tried prescription sleep drugs such as zol-pidem or over-the-counter medica-tions such as Tylenol PM reported side effects such as next-day drowsiness. Given the side effects of sleep medication, Consumer Reports recom-mends trying behavioral steps, such as waking up at the same time every day, taking time to unwind before bedtime and getting exercise during the day, particularly in the morning, for those looking to improve their sleep cycles. Aside from exercise, which 41 percent of problem sleepers had tried, few people overall had tried alternative sleep therapies. Of those who had tried alternatives, a number of respondents found practices such as meditation and yoga, white-noise machines and diet management to be helpful. For those looking to upgrade their mattress along with their sleep habits, the Consumer Reports survey found that 75 percent of those who bought a new mattress said that it helped them sleep better. Respondents also found that paying more didnt always trans-late into higher satisfaction, nor did buying from a major retailer. Q Finding the perfect mattressComfort doesn’t have to cost you a lot. Nor does spending more guarantee a good night’s sleep. Lying down on the mattress for at least 10 minutes in the store remains the best way to nd the right mattress, but Consumer Reports also recommends the following advice for those shopping for a new mattress based on the experiences of its survey participants.>>Memory foam and air beds satisfy: Subscribers who bought memory foam and in atable air beds were more likely to tell Consumer Re-ports they were sleeping better than those who purchased traditional innersprings. Tempur-Pedic memory foam and Sleep Number air beds were most cited as improving sleep.>>Price-matching offers are meaningless: Mattress makers offer some lines nationally, but when those brands are sold through major chains such as Macy’s and Sears, they’re for lines exclusive to those chains. And each retailer usually gives the mattress a different name. As a result, it’s hard to compare mattresses so price guarantees really don’t guarantee much.>>A new box spring isn’t a must: Though most respondents replaced their box spring with their mattress, roughly 80 percent of those who kept their old box spring reported that they were sleeping better after replacing just their mattress. So if the box spring isn’t broken and is still sound, consider keeping it.>>Haggling helps: Mattresses have hefty markups; that’s why 50 percent off “sales” are common. Whether you haggle, never pay full price and always factor in delivery and haul-away costs.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com AUGUST 2012 healthy living B9Keys to fitness? Strength, cardio, nutrition, accountability A re you looking for a qual-ity fitness program for weight loss and increased strength and energy levels? The Get In Shape for Women studio at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens offers a step-by-step program to transform your body effectively, with one of the most efficient programs in South Florida. Get In Shape For Womens unique body transfor-mation program offers small-group personal train-ing for women. A personal trainer works with one to no more than four women at a time in a private, upscale studio for as little as $19 a session. Each training session consists of 30 minutes of weight training, 25 minutes of cardio and nutrition coaching, for a complete balanced fitness program that produc-es amazing results. Karen L. of Palm Beach Gardens calls the program Life-changing. It is a fun, fabulous way to get in shape. The train-ers and management are unequaled. I love it.Ž Another member at the Palm Beach Gardens studio recently lost 45 pounds in less than 6 months. Mary G. of Boca Raton just celebrated losing 100 pounds in less a year. She did it by following the unique four-part program. No fad diets or diet pills. Just dedication to transforming her life and being held accountable for her progress made all of the difference in her results. Accountability is one of the aspects that separate this program from other group-training programs. At Get In Shape For Women, you are held accountable to the system of weight training, cardio and nutrition. Train-ers first help you set an achievable goal, and then hold you accountable for reaching it by having you weigh in weekly and record your body-fat per-centage once a month to make sure you are on track to hit your goal. The unique weight-training program is one of most popular reasons women join this gym. Weight training plays a vital role in body transformation, inju-ry prevention and overall health and well-being. Weight training increases muscle tone, which increases resting metabolism. For example, if you increase your muscle tone by just five pounds, you will increase your resting metabolism by approximately 200 cal-ories per day (1,400 calories per week). You also will burn approximately 200 calories during your weight-training workout. Weight training three times per week will yield an additional 600 calories burned. In total, you can burn approximately 2,000 calories per week from weight training and its metabolic response. Weight training is also important to help decrease the risk of osteoporosis and certain injuries related to a loss of muscle strength, poor posture and muscle imbalances. At Get In Shape For Women, 30 minutes of weight training is followed by 25 minutes of cardiovascular training. The workouts can be customized to ability, and progressed accordingly. All exercises are done under the direct supervision of a certified personal trainer. These exercises include free weights, Life Fitness weight machines, lunges, squats, core training, pushes and pulls that work every muscle in your body for optimal results. Losing weight is the primary reason consumers seek personal train-ers. Recent reports suggest that the nations obesity rates have finally pla-teaued, after more than doubling since the 1970s (National Center for Health Statistics, 2009). More than 60 percent of adults are overweight and more than 35 percent of them are classified as obese. Obesity is widespread and continues to be a huge health problem in the U.S. While Palm Beach County is not as high as the national average, according to a recent report, 18 percent of the population in Palm Beach County is classified as obese. The state of Florida ranks even worse with more than 2 percent of the population fitting into that category. According to the same study, more than 27 percent of people living in Palm Beach County have high blood pressure and more than 7 percent have diabetes. Both of these problems can be aided by adapting a healthier life-style that includes eating better and workout out on a regular basis. Nutrition and eating habits are a common topic throughout the Get In Shape For Women facility. The pro-gram offers a six-day-a-week nutrition program that includes six small meals a day. By eating six small and frequent high-quality meals (consisting of fruits and vegetables, high quality lean pro-tein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and eight to 10 glasses of water, per day), clients decrease their daily caloric consumption by approximate-ly 500 calories, or 3,500 calories per week. One pound of fat equals approxi-mately 3,500 calories, which means that coupled with a weight training and cardio training program, the program can yield close to two pounds of body-fat lost per week. This is not a quick fix or temporary weight loss. The Get in Shape for Women studios in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton are part of one of the fastest growing health chains in the last 10 years. The first studios opened more than 10 years ago in Boston, home now to more than 56 studios. Since each member gets her own permanent training time, some studios have a wait of more than a year to join. Both studios in Florida are less than 2 years old, so there is still space available.

What is the ideal age for your first facelift? A. When the changes in your face bother you enough to do something about it. I tell my patients to have their first lift before age 55 when their skin elasticity is still good enough to give them a long-lasting and fabulous result. Many choose around age 50, when they first notice jowls and neck sagging. If you have your first facelift at 60 or later, you will still look many years younger, however you may feel you are ready for freshening sooner than had you started earlier. At any age, the process today is easier than you may imagine. So, start younger, when less can be more. Remember, the goal is always to look the best for your age and look as good as you feel. Q Q. What is the down time with injectable fillers? A. While there are no incisions with fillers, injections of these products (i.e. Juvderm, Sculptra, Perlane, Restylane) can create some swelling and bruising that might last seven to 10 days. Because we cannot see through the skin we cannot completely avoid underlying blood vessels. By avoiding blood-thinning medications, (i.e. aspirin, anti-inflammatory meds) and some vitamins or supplements for two weeks prior to injections, patients can minimize the amount of potential bruising. Immediately following injections most patients find the initial swelling is well tolerated and not significantly notice-able by others. When planning for your fillers remember to consider your social calendar. This will then allow the right recovery time for that. Q Get better results with less surgery when younger

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com AUGUST 2012 healthy living B11Yesterdays His & Hers: monogrammed bath towels. Todays His & Hers: plastic surgery. Times have changed. The staging ground is in the Palm Beach Gardens waiting room at Haas Plastic Surgery, where one has time to contemplate whether a spouses trans-formation might just beg some in-kind action. The wife will have a facelift,Ž Dr. Andrea Haas says, explaining what has become a frequent occurrence, and her husband will be in the waiting room thinking, Shes going to look great out by the pool; maybe I should get an eye-lift.Ž Theyve come to the right place. Drs. Andrea and Brian Haas „ Dr. A and Dr. B, as theyre known to staff and patients alike „ are a husband-and-wife team who understand the marital desire to keep pace with a mates appearance. And between them, the Drs. Haas can re-fashion whatever body part a patient wishes to upgrade. Andrea Haas is an oculoplastic surgeon, meaning she specializes in eyes. Brian Haas works on plastic surgeries farther south: nose-jobs, facelifts, breast aug-mentations or reductions, tummy tucks. The flat-screen in the waiting area offers possibility previews: a 52-year-old woman before and after a facelift; a 14-year-old girl before and after a rhi-noplasty replaced a ski-bump nose with an upturned pixie one; an 80-year-old man before and after lower-eyelid sur-gery took away the bags from beneath his eyes. Brochures explain how Botox can erase frown lines or those nose-to-mouth parentheses. Why do people have plastic surgery?Ž Jill Arroyo asks rhetorically. They want to feel good about them-selves. Why do people dye their hair? Why do they buy nice clothes? A young woman might have a bump on her nose. An older womans breasts go south. Its all about putting things back where they belong.Ž A framed cartoon in one examining room tells the story: A large, naked woman standing at a counter, saying, Hi, I need to get my birthday suit taken in.Ž Ms. Arroyo is the marketing director and patient coordinator at Haas Plastic Surgery, the person who meets a poten-tial patient and learns what procedures theyre considering, escorts them to an exam room to meet Dr. A or Dr. B, then has the post-consultation conversation about cost (facial procedures can range anywhere from $3,500 to $19,000) and scheduling. In recent years, the desire to look good, to look younger, is often tied to the countrys economic downturn „ to layoffs and the need to be re-hired. Its a competitive market,Ž Ms. Arroyo says. I was just working with a patient who said, Im between jobs; I want to look good for job interviews.Ž Dr. Andrea Haas expands on that point. Its especially true for executives in their late 40s to mid-50s,Ž she says. If theyve lost jobs, theyve got to convince potential employers that they can work another 10, 15 years.Ž The connection between jobs and plastic surgery, she says, is huge.Ž And, she notes, she and her husband „ who is, just now, doing a surgery „ have seen a pent-up demand, lately, since the economy has begun to sta-bilize. People seem to feel freer to spend the money on not-exactly-essential needs, on turning back the appearance clock. Because, although the Drs. Haas certainly per-form reconstructive surgery for some of their patients, Dr. Haas estimates that 75-to-80 percent of their work is cosmetic. (Insurance generally does not cover cosmetic procedures, but medical necessity can make coverage possible.) Lets face it,Ž she says. We live in Baby Boomer Central. People are liv-ing longer. They dont feel old, so why should they look old?Ž Many of those who want to look as young as they feel choose injectables, the doctor says, referring to products that are injected to eliminate wrinkles or to build volume in facial areas, such as the nasolabial grooves from nose to mouth. Botox (botulinum toxin) is a prescription medication injected into mus-cles to temporarily eradicate severe frown furrows on ones forehead. It works by temporarily blocking muscu-lar nerve signals (in effect, paralyzing certain muscles) to weaken the muscle so it cant contract and cause frowning. The effect typically lasts for about six months. Collagen and Hyaluronic acid are injectables „ facial fillers, primari-ly „ used to smooth wrinkles or plump lips or raise recessed scars or restore lost volume in the mid face. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) cites Botox as the most frequently performed nonsur-gical procedure and breast augmenta-tion as the most popular surgical pro-cedure. More than 10.2 million surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2008, the ASAPS notes, citing a recent survey „ an increase of 162 percent since the group began collecting statis-tics in 1997. The injectables, the facial fillers, Dr. Haas says, have become more popular in recent years because improvements have rendered them longer-lasting and less painful. Next to Botox, she says, facelifts are the most-often requested procedure her office sees. People here,Ž Andrea Haas says, theyre younger at the same age than they are in the Northeast or other places. Its a healthy lifestyle. People look good. They feel good. They want to look as good as they feel, and theyre active, year-round.Ž Age isnt the only reason people feel the need to improve their looks. The mommy makeovers are huge,Ž says Dr. Haas. Theres a big up-tick in that, also. They will have tummy tucks, liposuction. They want to get their pre-baby bodies back.Ž Why did she choose plastic surgery for her specialty? The short version is, Ive always liked working with my hands and working on projects. Grow-ing up, I did tons of arts and crafts, needlepoint, embroidery, et cetera. The other part that I realized growing up is that I can visualize the end-product before I start. So, in medical studies, you explore all these different locations. You discover, I like that, I really dont like that, or whatever. At first, I fell in love with the operating room and surgery; I thought that was really cool. Then when I was introduced to plas-tic surgery I thought that was really, really cool. And then in ophthalmology, my specialty of oculoplastic surgery, I remember the day I discovered that. Thats what Im going to do. Because its a perfect combination of the creativity of doing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, working with my hands. Its a very rewarding feeling, such a gift to give somebody. And its some-thing they wake up with every morn-ing.Ž Patient coordinator Jill Arroyo smiles at that statement. Were really not just in the plastic surgery business,Ž Ms. Arroyo says. Were in the self-confidence business.Ž Plastic surgery helps patients look as young as they feel BY MARY JANE FINEmjfine@floridaweekly.com BEFORE HAVINGPLASTIC SURGERY>>FIND DOWN TIME: Recovery can take weeks, so plan ahead to ensure that you’ll be suf ciently recovered before returning to work or attending a wedding or whatever public outing might require you to look your best.>>EXISTING CONDITIONS: Be sure to tell your doctor in advance if you have high blood pressure or arthritis or diabetes or any other condition that needs to be under control before you undergo any procedure.>>MEDICATIONS: Consult your doctor about what is safe to take and what to avoid.
