THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS. S E E T A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A T A A T A A S The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, along with other lighthouses around the world, will celebrate International Light-house-Lightship weekend on Aug. 18-19. The observance promotes awareness of lighthouses and lightships and their need for preservation and restoration, promotes amateur radio and fosters international goodwill. Two local amateur radio operating groups, the Jupiter-Tequesta Repeater Group and the Martin County Amateur Radio Asso-ciation, will be set up behind the museum building from 9:30 a.m. on Saturday through 3 p.m. on Sunday with two radio stations. The public is invited to stop by and get on the air. The radio clubs and museum will share information on the operation of Station J at the Lighthouse and U.S. Coast Guard Sta-tion. During World War II, the U.S. Naval Supplementary Radio Station, code named Station J, was a secret operation designed to intercept U-boat radio messages, determine the position of the submarines, alert Allied ships and help U.S. forces attack enemy vessels. Station J reached its peak in 1943, when the operation had 95 men plus 11 Marines who stood guard. That spring, 67 German submarines were destroyed. During the free event, amateur radio call sign W4JŽ will be tuning in fellow ham operators at other lighthouses and light-ships all around the world. There will be an education tent and activities for children and adults. Lighthouse tours will cost $5; a new Sweet Shop will be open. The Lighthouse is at 500 Captain Armours Way, Jupiter.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY July married August after the 100th anniversary of my grandmothers death had slipped past like a warm wind. Thank God our air conditioning has failed. It reminds me of an obvious truth: I have nothing in the world to complain about, because my children (although warm) are alive and well. On a wall in my youngest sons bedroom, framed by wood from the old barn at the Eskelson place, hangs a grave rub-bing. Anna Rambo,Ž it reads, with the most spare additional information presented in a calendar straightjacket: Oct. 8, 1890. June 27, 1912.Ž Anna was born and raised on what would later become part of my grandparents big ranch, high in the Rockies. She lived in a slender glen or vale „ but those are Euro-pean-English words. It was a draw, a cut, a gully, an arroyo knitted tight with aspens and pines. Black bears, coyotes, mountain lions, deer and elk, some jumpy cows once upon a time and a handful of ranchers „ nobody else has known that draw except the Ute Indians, who hunted it. She rests there still, winter and summer, buried just above the collapsing cabin, cor-rals and outbuildings her father once built. Sun and stars circle endlessly above her grave, while nations rise and fall below it. Already, a century has ticked by like a heartbeat since they laid her down. Anna died in childbirth, not much more than a child herself. I dont grieve for her, mostly. Instead, I grieve for her parents. The Eskelsons were homesteaders like my grandfather, only older. They had to lose their greatest treasure in those mountains. Meanwhile, we had to lose our AC in a thick thatch of days and nights b utter ed hot by subtropical summer. Its a character-building experience, this living without air.Ž In mere days, my chil-dren have grown more virtuous. Either that or theyre too hot to be less virtuous. I havent heard a single word of complaint from my sons, and none from my wife. But she never complains about anything. Late in the afternoon, the temperature in the house can climb above 90. Man it feels good, all of us dripping together toward evening. But not as good as it feels at night, when we drip toward morning while ceiling and floor fans purr self-importantly in the thick air, like Tampa-bound politicians. I relish the heat. Living this way, we learn the delicious nuances of a breeze as intimately as lovers learn the thrilling harmonies of a caress. Florida speaks to us personally now, in all five senses. Without AC, we can smell, taste, hear and feel things lost to people who (not unreasonably) put comfort in front of experience. Of course, we still have electricity. Neither Anna Rambo nor my grandmother, who raised seven children on that Colorado ranch, ever saw a spark of electricity when my mother and her sisters and brothers were young. Even in my youth, the heat for cooking and warmth at the ranch still came from wood and coal, and the nearest indoor plumbing was 30 miles away. None of this was difficult. My grandmother, who chopped wood in a flower-print dress well into her 70s, luxuriated in her life, even if it was frequently uncomfort-able. She had l ove, to st art with. And after she lost my grandfather „ he was killed at 71 chasing cows down a snow-slick slope on a horse that fell „ she traveled the world. Her children survived into very old age, including the ones who went to war. Difficulty, hardship and loss „ those cannot be defined as no electricity, or no AC. But what are they? Ive spent a lot of time recently with people who know the answer. These men and women have lost children „ to disease, to accident, to war. Somehow they remain generous, which is another way of saying they remain, if not happy, healthy. Their endurance, their quiet fortitude in the face of the burden they must now carry always, strikes me as the most extraordinary display of personal grace that Im ever likely to witness. In the state of loss, unlike in the states of Florida or Colorado, air-conditioning, electricity and comfort do not exist. People who have lost children, like people who have been to war, are backpackers ever after „ they carry weight that the rest of us cant imagine. And they will never get to put it down. There are other deep losses, too.I sat in his kitchen with my neighbor Chester Scheneman the other night talk-ing around the edges of this subject „ the subject of loss. At 88, Mr. Scheneman can no longer live alone. He lost his wife, Virginia, several years ago, and last week he lost his home of 40 years. After a fall and a broken leg (he can only break one leg, since he lost the other), hed gone to physical therapy and assisted liv-ingŽ for about eight weeks, before returning to celebrate a single, final evening in the house he loved. He wanted to lie in the bed hed shared with his wife just one more time, tucked under live oaks and the many citrus trees hed planted and cultivated. Wheelchair-bound, smiling broadly and taking visitors, he sat near a faded wall decoration inscribed with his own lacon-ic Buckeye-to-Gator biography: I wasnt born here, but I got here as fast as I could,Ž it announced. I think the hardest challenges you face come when youre old,Ž Mr. Schene-man acknowledged, after I prompted him. Things can change, just all of a sudden.Ž There was a sober pause. Well,Ž he added, I dont even want to go there.Ž That conversation was over. His smile bloomed again suddenly, the blue eyes above it as clear as light-splashed water. You all have things in a good solid place, it looks like. Youre doing fine,Ž he concluded. Yes, Chet, we are. So we wont be complaining about losing the AC. The next morning, we watched Mr. Schenemans son drive him out of his gate for the last time, headed north. Now hes lost the Sunshine State forever, and weve lost him. And now, without a whisper of complaint, hes traveling that long hard road to someday.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. In America, we are supposed to like constitutional rights. One would think that an organization that vigilantly „ and effectively „ safe-guards a constitutional right would be honored as a kind of national jewel. Yet the National Rifle Association gets only obloquy. Its practically brand-ed an accessory to murder whenever a lunatic shoots people. Its labeled a nefarious special interest that lobbies Congress into submission. Its all that is wrong with our system. No one can doubt the NRAs enormous clout. But the group comes about it the right way. It represents millions of members, including lots of union mem-bers and rural Democrats. Its supreme act of influence is defeating officehold-ers in free-and-fair elections. And its signature victory has been a sea change in public opinion on gun control. Its influence is a function of its success in the art of democratic persuasion. In short, the NRA won the argument. In 1959, Gallup found that 60 percent of people supported banning handguns. Now, Gallup doesnt even show major-ity support for banning assault weap-ons. The case for gun control collapsed on the lack of evidence for its central contention that tighter gun regulations reduce crime. Federal gun laws are unrestrictive. Forty-one states have right-to-carry laws, up from 10 in 1987. Some 80 million peo-ple own guns, and about 8 million have conceal-and-carry permits. Nonetheless, violent crime is at 40-year lows. If the proliferation of guns caused violence, the country would look like Mogadishu. The nations highest-profile champion of gun control is a mayor who pre-sides over a metropolis where guns are basically prohibited and yet hundreds of people are killed by them each year. If that hasnt made New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stop and think, nothing will. After the massacre in Aurora, Colo., Bloomberg and his allies rushed to plug their favorite gun-control ideas, evident-ly caring little whether the measures would have stopped James Holmes. Highly intelligent, methodical and determined to kill, Holmes the person constituted the elemental danger. Guns, even frightening-looking guns formerly banned by Congress, do not go on killing sprees on their own. By the standards usually set for our politics, the NRA is a model organization. We say we want people more involved in the process. The NRAs more than 4 mil-lion members are highly engaged. We say theres too much partisanship. Single-mindedly committed to its cause, the NRA endorsed about 60 House Democrats in 2010. And we say that we value the Constitution. Gun-control advocates, though, treat the Second Amendment like an inkblotŽ (to borrow Robert Borks famous phrase for the Ninth Amend-ment). They consider it an unfortunate lapse by James Madison, a forlorn left-over from the 18th century. They were all duly shocked when the Supreme Court ruled, in its 2008 decision District of Columbia v. Heller, that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms. No one, during fair political weather or foul, has been as unstinting in its protection of that right as the NRA. For that, we should be grateful. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The Obama administration torpedoes the arms trade treatyQuick: What is more heavily regulated, global trade of bananas or battle-ships? In late June, activists gathered in New Yorks Times Square to make the absurd point, that, unbelievably, there are more rules governing your ability to trade a banana from one country to the next than governing your ability to trade an AK-47 or a military helicopter.Ž So said Amnesty International USAs Suzanne Nossel at the protest, just before the start of the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, which ran from July 2 to July 27. Thanks to a last-minute declaration by the Unit-ed States that it needed more timeŽ to review the short, 11-page treaty text, the conference ended last week in failure. There isnt much that could be considered controversial in the treaty. Sig-natory governments agree not to export weapons to countries that are under an arms embargo, or to export weapons that would facilitate the commission of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimesŽ or other violations of inter-national humanitarian law. Exports of arms are banned if they will facilitate gender-based violence or violence against childrenŽ or be used for trans-national organized crime.Ž Why does the United States need more time than the more than 90 other countries that had sufficient time to read and approve the text? The answer lies in the power of the gun lobby, the arms industry and the apparent inability of President Barack Obama to do the right thing, especially if it contradicts a cold, political calcula-tion. The Obama administration torpedoed the treaty exactly one week after the massacre in Aurora, Colo. In Colorado, Obama offered promises of prayer and reflection.Ž As New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, commenting on Obama and Mitt Romney both avoid-ing a discussion of gun control, Sooth-ing words are nice, but maybe its time the two people who want to be presi-dent of the United States stand up and tell us what theyre going to do about it.Ž Gun violence is a massive problem in the U.S., and it only seems to pierce the public consciousness when there is a massacre. Gun-rights advocates attack people who suggest more gun control is needed, accusing them of politicizing the massacre. Yet some elected offi-cials are taking a stand. Gov. Pat Quinn of Illinois is seeking a ban on assault weapons, much like the ones in place in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. The National Rifle Associations executive vice president, Wayne LaPi-erre, issued the threat before the U.N. conference that Without apology, the NRA wants no part of any treaty that infringes on the precious right of lawful Americans to keep and bear arms.Ž The NRA organized letters opposing the treaty, signed by 51 U.S. senators and 130 members of the House. After the conference ended in failure, the NRA took credit for killing it. Of course, there is nothing in the treaty that would impact U.S. domes-tic gun laws. The rights protected by the cherished Second Amendment (a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringedŽ) would remain intact. The NRAs interest lies not only with individual gun owners, but also with the U.S. weapons manufacturers and exporters. The United States is the worlds largest weapons producer, exporter and importer. It is the regula-tion of this global flow of weaponry that most likely alarms the NRA, not the imagined prospect of the U.N. tak-ing away the legally owned guns inside the U.S. Protesters outside the U.N. during the ATT conference erected a mock graveyard, with each headstone reading, 2,000 people killed by arms every day.Ž Thats one person killed every minute. In many places around the world, mas-sacres on the order of Aurora are all too common. Days after Aurora, at least nine people were killed in a U.S. drone strike in northwest Pakistan. Pakistani officials said the victims were suspected militants, but the Obama administra-tion deems all adult-male drone targets as militants unless proven otherwise, posthumously. After the conference wrapped without success, Suzanne Nossel said, This was stunning cowardice by the Obama administration, which at the last minute did an about-face and scuttled progress toward a global arms treaty, just as it reached the finish line.Ž These words were doubly strong, as she criticized the very State Department where she worked previously, under Hillary Clin-ton. The UN has pledged to resume the effort to pass an arms trade treaty, despite the intransigence of the country that Martin Luther King Jr. called the greatest purveyor of violence in the world.Ž Until then, bananas will remain more heavily regulated than battleships and bazookas.

She keeps herself busy with fuzzy toys, and is alert and bright. She likes being around people.Cats outnumber dogs as pets in the United States and Canada, but you wouldn’t know it by looking in any veterinary hospital. BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWhen you are reading about different cat breeds or checking the personality descriptions of cats at a shelter, you may come across some that are described as dog-like.Ž And its true that some cats, like dogs, will follow you around, play fetch or go for walks on leash. But if you want to take better care of your cat, the last thing you should be doing is treating him like a dog. Q Their nutritional needs are different. Cats are what biologists call obligate carnivores.Ž That means they must have meat in their diet to survive. Lots of meat. While dogs can exist on a diet that contains large amounts of grains, cats need meat protein to be at the top of their game. Meat contains a nutri-ent called taurine that is essential for heart and eye health and normal cell, muscle and skeletal function. Cats cant synthesize tau-rine on their own, so they must get it from their diet. Cats also have other nutritional requirements that vary from those of dogs, such as the type of vitamin A they can use. Thats why you should never feed your cat the same food you give your dog. Q Their physiology is different. Cats metabolize drugs differently than dogs or people do. Its very dangerous to give a cat the same drug that you or I or the dog next door might take, even if its for the same type of problem. Take pain, for instance. Ive seen clients kill their cats by going to the medicine chest and giving their cats aspirin or acetaminophen. The same holds true for parasite treatments. Never apply a flea or tick treatment or shampoo made for dogs to your cat. Always call your veteri-narian first to ask if a particular medication is safe for your cat and at what dose. Q The way cats express pain is different. Well, its not just different. Its almost non-existent. Its much easier to notice pain in a dog because we tend to interact with dogs directly. We take them on walks and we see whether theyre limping, for instance, or moving more slowly. With cats, its much more difficult to see the changes in mobil-ity that signal injury or arthritis. Unless you happen to see your cat while hes doing his business in the litter box, you might not notice that hes having more diffi-culty squatting or no longer does that Rockettes-high kick to cover his scat. You might not notice that he doesnt jump to the top of the bookcase any-more, and you might like it that he no longer jumps on the kitchen counter. You just notice that hes sleeping more and, hey, thats what cats do, isnt it? Because cats are both predator and prey, they make a point of hiding any kind of weakness. They know instinc-tively that displaying pain puts them at risk from other predators, so they do their best to mask it. That works to their disadvantage when it comes to veterinary care. The signs that a cat is in pain are so subtle that most people miss them unless they are keen observers of their cats. Q Cats dont take care of themselves, and they need to see the veterinarian. Its a mystery to me why people are so much less likely to provide veterinary care to their cats than to their dogs. Cats are the most popular pets in America, yet veterinarians are seeing a decline in veterinary visits for cats. Thats a shame because cats need and deserve great veterinary care to ensure that they live long, happy, healthy lives. Cats may be intelligent and independent, but they cant doctor themselves„at least not yet. Providing your cat with regular veterinary care is a good investment, and its one of the responsibilities you owe your cat when you bring him into your life. Q PET TALESPurrfect health Cats aren’t ‘small dogs’; they have their own care needs

Q The continuing crisisQ Officials organizing a show for high school girls in June in Sherbrooke, Que-bec, signed up a 20-year-old apprentice hypnotist to perform, but by the end of his session, he had failed to bring all of the entranced girls out of their spells, includ-ing one who was so far under that the man had to summon his mentor from home (an hours drive away) to come rescue her. The mentor, Richard Whitbread, quickly rehyp-notized her and then snapped her out of it with a stern voice, according to a Canadian Broadcasting Corp. News report. He noted that his protege is a handsome young man, which might have unduly influenced the girls. Q Christianity has grown in acceptance recently in Ratanakiri province, Cambodia, according to a June report in the Phnom Penh Post, as up to 80 percent of the popu-lation has given up the traditional Thera-vada Buddhism (mixed with animism) as too demanding. According to local offi-cials, traditional priests typically prescribe expensive offerings, such as a slaughtered buffalo, as the price of improving a rela-tives health. Said one convertee, with the money saved using Western medicine instead of traditional sacrifices, she was able to build a house for her family. Q According to a June lawsuit by a former student, Western Nevada Colleges course in human sexuality was so over-the-top that it might be described as a collec-tion of instructor Tom Kubistants erotic fantasies about college-age kids. Among Mr. Kubistants demands, according to K.R.,Ž were keeping a masturbation journal (and ramping up the activity to twice the stu-dents pre-course level), disclosing ones uninhibited sexual fantasies that in some cases were described by the instructor to the class at large, and conducting discus-sion groups on the uses of sex toys and lubricants. By the fifth week, K.R. claimed, Mr. Kubistant had abandoned his schedule of topics and begun to dwell extensively on the female orgasm.Ž Mr. Kubistants instructions appear to fit the faculty hand-books definition of sexual harassment. Q Bright ideasRhesus monkeys have always posed delicate problems in India, where they are both revered (by Hindu law) and despised (for damaging property and roaming the streets begging for food). In Delhi, the rhesus population has grown dramatically, aided by the Hindus who feed them, and streets and private property are increasingly fouled. However, Amar Singhs busi-ness is good. He owns 65 langurs (apes much more vicious than rhesus monkeys) and, for the equivalent of about $200 per month, periodically brings one or two by a clients house to urinate in the yard so that the rhesus monkeys will steer clear. Q Family valuesQ Alleged drug dealer Jesus PepeŽ Fuentes, 37, was arrested in Chicago in May after his mother botched a heroin pickup for him. Mr. Fuentes, eager to catch a concert by the rapper Scarface, sent his mother instead to gather the 10-kilo drop. She collected the drugs, but the entire ship-ment was lost when she failed to use a turn signal and was stopped by police. Q Catherine Venusto, 45, was arrested in July and charged with breaking into the computer system of the Northwestern Lehigh School District in Pennsylvania (where she formerly worked) and chang-ing the records of her two children (and while at it, reading private e-mails of 10 school officials). Ms. Venusto allegedly switched a daughters F grade to M (for medically excused) and one grade of her overachieving son from 98 to 99. Q Movie scene come to lifeRomanian gang members have apparently been apprehended after a series of robberies during March, April and May that resembled a scene from a recent Fast and FuriousŽ movie. The gangs vehicle approaches the rear of tractor-trailers trav-eling at highway speed, and gangsters climb onto the hood, grab the 18-wheelers rear door, open it using specialized tools, and steal inventory, apparently without knowl-edge of the driver. In one video released by police in Bucharest, the gang members, after peering inside the trailer, decided to take nothing and climbed back out. Q PerspectiveChicago staged its annual gun buy-back program in June (a $100 gift card for every firearm turned in) amidst its worst homicide epidemic in years, in which 259 have died on city streets in the first six months of 2012. However, the program appears to be, inadvertently, a win-win project for both antiand pro-gun forces. The city reported that 5,500 guns were removed from circulation (bringing the total to 23,000 since the program was inaugurated), and included this year were several machine guns. On the other hand, 60 of this years guns were handed in by a local pro-gun organization, Guns Save Life, which promised to use its gift cards to buy ammunition for a National Rifle Associa-tion-supported shooting camp for kids. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE


A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY turns left. Oh, good. I made it,Ž she thinks, then pulls into Plaza La Mer to park at her gym. Days later a traffic ticket arrives in her mail, Oh, bloody hell.Ž Ms. Kent goes through the motions: What do I do?Ž Im not going to pay it.Ž Oh, just pay it.Ž Alas, the day before her photoenforced $158 fine was due, Ms. Kent handed over her Visa card. She has been regretting this ever since. Furious, she now takes her stance: Its mob tactics, youre trapped. Theres no way out except not to pay it. And then youre breaking the law.Ž Certain there will be more cameras, she jabs: Fundraising, fundraising, fun-draising.Ž Anticipating the moves of the state and those down at Juno Town Hall, she keeps swinging: Theyre not going to do anything about it. Its far too lucra-tive, far too lucrative. I cant imagine they would ever want to give (cameras) up. Im sure they want to spread them everywhere. Its really a lucrative ploy.Ž Then she goes for the knockout: And we pay for it.Ž But Juno Beach Police Chief Brian Smith blocks her revenue-raising accu-sation: Were living proof that this is not a money-making venture,Ž he says. Weve paid out more than we take in.Ž Backing up his claim, he turns to the numbers: Juno Beach has a total of seven red light cameras positioned at four different intersections across the two-square-mile town. From January to June, tickets have accrued $232,376. Sounds like easy money, but the chief contends the cost. The Town of Juno Beach pays $5,000 per camera per month, leasing the tick-eting technology from an Arizona-based company. By the time you add in the hours of officers reviewing violations, Chief Smith says, Were pretty close to breaking even.Ž Then he throws down what he sees to be the bell-ringer: Our goals are pure,Ž he says. If it saves lives, its worth it.Ž And so goes the brouhaha. Perceptions are plentiful: A money-leeching, out-of-state business; a revenue-greedy government acting under a safety-seeking guise; and an antagonistic public championing their private rights. Pro-tests and court cases throughout the state and nation show frustrated drivers are fighting the cameras. By some votes, cameras have been repealed; by others, upheld. Thus far, the Florida legislature finds them legal. In the speed-trap-known hamlet of Juno Beach, here are the numbers: Q 7,460 tickets were issued from January 2011 to January 2012. Of these, 4,787 tickets were paid. After 30 days, unpaid citations transfer to the Palm Beach County Clerk. Q Clerk records show 1,268 unpaid Juno Beach tickets from January through Aug. 2. Of these tickets, 380 were dis-missed; 112 were dismissed at an offi-cers request; 633 were paid; four were found guilty; 10 not guilty; adjudication was withheld from 129 citations, mean-ing the offender was found not guilty, but forced to pay a higher fine. Q From May 3 to Aug. 3, the Juno Beach Police Department counted 2,567 violations. Upon review, 921 of these violations were rejected and 1,646 tick-ets were mailed out. Despite any sensitivity police officers may extend when reviewing violations, Steve Polzin ponders the sensitivity of ticket costs in these struggling economic times. Ticket costs have gotten so onerous, it leads to a real bitter public,Ž says Mr. Polzin, director of mobility policy research at the University of South Florida, Mr. Polzin believes all would be in favor of improved safety, but if red light camera fines should rise, Thats more than teaching a lesson.Ž Some studies find the cameras increase traffic accidents. Other polls show the cameras to be in public favor. Researching all angles, Mr. Polzin feels the presence of cameras can modify driving behavior and be anxiety-provoking, simultaneously caus-ing more slam on the brakes before the camera flashesŽ rear-end collisions, while preventing real red-light-runningŽ T-bone crashes. The way he would like people to see the cameras: Think about when someones pulled over or stopped for something. Do they do something different subsequently? Generally, they do.Ž They buckle up. They slow down. Theyre more cautious when theyre changing lanes. Over time it impacts their behavior,Ž Mr. Polzin continues. And not just in the intersection where they were initially issued a ticket, but in general.Ž Suggest-ing that subtly, over time, the reputation of Juno Beach may change from, Do not speed,Ž to Stop on yellow.Ž But currently, the cameras „ an admirable aim with a rather expensive end „ leave many a cited driver wondering, What happens if I dont pay my ticket?Ž The county will come after you,Ž Chief Smith says. Theyll suspend your license. Youll receive the same punitive penalties, just as if an officer wrote you a ticket.Ž There are 49 cameras across Palm Beach County. In addition to the seven in Juno, there are 10 in Boca Raton, 11 in Boynton Beach, 10 in unincorporated Palm Beach County, 4 in Palm Springs and 7 in West Palm Beach. When municipalities were enforcing camera fines under ordinance law, Juno Beach Chief Smith feels they held a lot less bite. But where it stands now, the state has backed (cameras) in the legis-lature,Ž he says. Not everybody agrees with it, but it is state law.Ž And its this prevailing confusion over the severity of camera citations that has left Palm Beach County resident Bob Ratcliffe unsure of what to do. Following an 18-wheeler through the intersection at Donald Ross Road and Ellison Wilson Road, Mr. Ratcliffe could not see the traffic light. Weve all been behind big box trucks or 18-wheelers before,Ž he says. I was not tailgating. And he never touched his taillights. But when I looked up and saw the red light, I knew I was screwed.Ž Mr. Ratcliffe believes he has a strong story and he would like his side to be heard. But hes torn: Does he suck it up and pay his ticket, even though he really doesnt want to? Or does he take a chance „ and more time off work „ to risk paying more? If I go before the magistrate, Ill be honest with you, theyre just going to rubberstamp it,Ž so he wonders if its even worth it to try it, or if contesting his ticket would just be a waste of his time. More than the fine, its where the money goes that irritates Mr. Ratcliffe. He says even if he pays his ticket, The town doesnt get the bulk of the money. A company that maintains and operates the cameras from elsewhere gets the bulk of the money.Ž Greg Parks, senior vice president of American Traffic Solutions, the com-pany from which Juno Beach leases its devices, says he respects the opinions of the public, but such assessments are not factual. To clear misconceptions, he breaks down the cost of the $158 ticket: $75 goes to Juno Beach, $70 goes to the state, $10 goes to Florida trauma centers and $3 goes to The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. As far as paying ATS, Chief Smith says the town and the company have a cost-neutral agreement. The cameras cost $35,000 a month,Ž he explains. But say we only collect $30,000. The company wont expect us to pay the difference, theyll take what the cameras brought in.Ž Which poses an interesting Catch-22: If the cameras do what they are intended to do „ modi-fy driving behavior „ ATS wont get paid. Mr. Parks attests its more about safety than money. He has his public relations department forward an email of statistics to show his companys greater role. Attributing data to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, ATS says there were 62 fatalities resulting from 57 red-light-running crashes in Florida in 2010. This would sig-nify a 34 percent decrease from the 93 red-light-running fatalities in 2007, when the state installed its first red-light-safety camera. These cameras are a godsend to public safety and police enforcement,Ž says Harvey Oyer, a Shutts & Bowen lawyer repre-senting ATS. But when it comes to safety in Juno Beach, Ms. Kent questions, where are the fatalities? When she went to town hall to contest her ticket, she was told the cameras were in place to save the lives of pedes-trians, bicyclists and motorists. Living in the area for almost 12 years, she asks town authorities to refresh her memory, Where are the lives lost?Ž Chief Smith acknowledges there may not be a history of traffic-related deaths, but says there are concerns, We do catch a lot of people speeding down U.S. 1.Ž He goes on to say, Just because it hasnt happened, doesnt mean it wont happen,Ž sounding somewhat like a parent who rationalizes, You may not understand this, but were doing it for your own good. Mr. Parks sums up the argument surrounding his red-light-camera profits real simple: Just stop. Dont break the law.Ž Q CAMERASFrom page 1 Juno Beach red-light cameras: Where they are>> Eastbound and westbound Donald Ross Road and Ellison Wilson Road >> Eastbound and northbound Donald Ross Road and U.S. 1 >> Northbound and southbound Juno Isles Boulevard and U.S. 1 >> Southbound Universe Boulevard and U.S. 1 COURTESY JUNO BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT“NOV” is number of violations; :payments received” is violations paid in 30 days, and “UTC” is the number of violations sent to the county.SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis camera is located at U.S. 1 and Juno Isles boulevard.

John Cleveland, professor and chair of the Department of Cancer Biology, and Derek Duckett, associate scientific director of the Translational Research Institute, will act as co-principal investigators. The three-year grant will allow the scientists to develop high-throughput screening tests to identify and optimize inhibitors of the autophagy pathway,Ž the principal recycling center of the cell, which is especially active during times of stress or nutrient loss. During autophagy, various cell components, including damaged proteins and mitochondria, are delivered to the lysosome, which is essentially a bag of enzymes that breaks down cellular waste. Autophagy is critical to cell survival and defects in the pathway can lead to a number of disorders, including some neurodegenerative and muscular diseases. We have shown that impairing autophagy can improve the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs, helping to overcome drug resistance,Ž said Mr. Cleveland, in a prepared statement. Although theres a lot of interest in generating compounds to act on specific components of the pathway, none exist now. The new grant will, hopefully, help us begin to remedy that situation.Ž Mr. Duckett added, Our studies have shown that impairing the autophagy pathway increases the sensitivity of cancer cells to conventional therapeutics, so this is a highly practical and productive approach to developing potential treatments.Ž With the new funding, the scientists will develop a novel biochemical test to identify inhibitors of the UNC-51-like kinase (Ulk1), a critical on-off switch that regulates the pathway. Once identified, these small molecules will also help scientists improve their basic understanding of autophagy, its relationship to cancer, and its use as a target that could enhance the action of conventional anticancer therapeutics.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 NEWS A11 HEALTHY LIVING linda Brenda couldnt believe it was August already. In two more weeks, the family would be loading their SUV with her son Jasons belongings and heading off for Jasons freshman year of college. Brenda had spent the summer struggling with mixed emotions „ she was excited about the new experiences ahead for Jason, but mostly she was fighting overwhelming feelings of dread and guilt. She worried that Jason was ill-equipped to handle the responsibilities of living on his own, and feared he didnt have the work ethic and self-discipline to master the academic challenges without her ongoing prodding and supervision. Brenda had promised herself she wouldnt be a tyrant as a parent like her dad had been. She had grown up fearing the angry tirades. But she realized now that the opposite parenting extreme unfortunately could have negative repercussions, as well. She had looked the other way when her children slacked off, and had made allowances for sloppy, irresponsible behavior. Homework time had always been a disaster. Jason was an indifferent studier, and needed constant prodding. Jason frequently partied late, sleeping away the weekend. His room was in a constant state of upheaval. He didnt have a clue how to do laundry on his own. And forget about getting up in the morning for school without several wake-up shouts from Brenda. How on earth was Jason going to manage his rigorous college course load, without flunking out? Oh, if only she had kicked buttŽ earlier to teach him the life lessons she now desperately wished he had mastered years ago. Brenda had spent the summer frantically trying to drill long overdue life lessons, hoping somehow to instill the values, skills and structure she felt would be necessary to thrive. Jason was mostly tolerant, and even amused by her efforts. He kept assuring her hed be fine, but she wondered if he, too, was becoming insecure about how he would navigate the challenges once on his own. And, with a sinking feeling, Brenda knew it had been important to demonstrate and reinforce those messages consistently, over time, as Jason was growing up. Certainly, these were not attributes that could be acquired overnight.Charles J. Sykes, author of a 1996 book called Dumbing Down Our Kids,Ž was well aware of the above dilemma, and penned the following message. If you think theres any useful relevance in your household, feel free to tape it on your refrigerator! Rule 1: Life is not fair „ get used to it! Rule 2: The world doesnt care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You wont be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flip-ping: they called it opportunity. Rule 6: If you mess up, its not your parents fault, so dont whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents werent as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk abouthow cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents generation, try delous-ing the closet in your own room. Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and theyll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesnt bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You dont get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are youll end up working for one.

A12 WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 Three Palm Beach County students earned $1,000 college scholar-ships, thanks to donations from Clerk & Comptrollers office employees. Pierre Clerger of Lantana, Cassandra Moser of Wellington and Jasmine Spen-ce of Palm Beach Gardens each were awarded scholarships based on a 500-word essay, community service and their individual grade point averages. Scholar-ships are given each year to the depen-dent children of clerks office employees. Its an honor to present these scholar-ships to students who have done so much for our community, and also are members of our clerk family,Ž said Clerk Sharon Bock. Each year, Im impressed by the dedication and commitment of the students who apply for these scholarships. This years students are role models for other young adults as they pursue their dreams.Ž Mr. Clerger, a 2012 graduate of Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, plans to attend the University of the Arts in Philadelphia to study dance. He hopes to become a dancer. He is the son of Marie Clerger, a clerk in the circuit civil division. Ms. Moser, a 2011 graduate of Wellington High School in Wellington, is studying nurs-ing at Palm Beach State College. She plans to pursue a career in nursing, and eventually earn her medical degree to become a pediat-ric physicians assistant. She is the daughter of Sherry Moser, an administrative assistant in the clerks human resources department. Ms. Spence, a 2012 graduate of Palm Beach Gardens High School in Palm Beach Gar-dens, plans to attend Florida Atlantic Uni-versity to study neuroscience and behavior. Her goal is to own a pediatric therapy center. She is the daughter of Dawn Kelly, a supervisor in the county civil division. Money for the scholarships came from the office Dress Down Friday fundraiser, which last year raised $38,650 for local charities and for the student scholarships. Employees donate $2 each week to dress casually on Fridays, and choose which groups receive the money at the end of the year.

A16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY With fewer rentals, why lease for high season, if you can buy? heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF Before becoming seasonal residents of the Palm Beach area, many families elect to rent for a season; all part of the process in determining where they will ultimately settle when making their long-term commitment. As we are all aware, both seasonal and annual rental prices are up and there are not as many avail-able rentals due to the increased demand. I have clients who have very specific needs for a rental during high season — January through March. They vacationed in the area last year and immediately fell in love with it. We discussed purchasing but they did not feel comfortable with the existing prices at that time. The circumstances have changed in the market and so has their criteria. Last year was their first year in Florida. They were eager to spend Janu-ary through March and were flexible to stay anywhere from Palm Beach to Juno Beach. They had a large dog and were planning on bringing the dog with them, ultimately limiting the number of avail-able units, as rentals permitting large pets are very difficult to find. They came for one weekend and we looked at condominiums and single fam-ily homes in Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter. I had six properties to show them. The first two we viewed were in family neighborhoods and each one had other potential clients looking at the units when we were there. One had an offer that had just been accepted, liter-ally, as we were touring the home. We went from townhomes to condos to high-end clubs looking for a tempo-rary place they could call home. Their budget began at $3,500 per month and quickly moved to $10,000 per month. We spent two days searching and after the second day, they decided to put in an offer on the first rental we viewed. It was in a small condominium complex, located directly across the street from the beach, and it was a beach that allows dogs. This was important for them so they could take the dog for walks on the beach. As we walked up to the condo to meet the listing broker and make an offer, there was another couple waiting to see the unit. My clients were very anxious. This was the only condo they liked and they did not want to start their search again. I approached the broker and told him my clients were ready to make an offer. He allowed the other potential cli-ent to look at the unit and replied to us that he had to contact the owner to see if he would accept the offer since the other client was willing to sign for an annual rental. We asked to go to his office, which was just a short distance from the con-dominium building, so we could write up the lease agreement with the full deposit, $500 above the asking price per month, and payment up front for the three months rent. The owner agreed and we signed the agreement. January came and one month into the rental my clients decided they wanted to purchase in the area. They were involved in several activities in the area and were spending time with other friends from their hometown in the northeast who had previously invested in their seasonal homes in the Palm Beach Gardens area. They also joined a club and became very active there on a daily basis as well. As we narrowed our search to one building, they decided to put in an offer on a spectacular oceanfront condomin-ium. Just as we were getting close to coming to terms, the owner decided to take the unit off the market. My clients were disappointed and decided to rent again this year. I am now in the process of finding them a rental in the same building for this season while they revisit their deci-sion to purchase. Currently there are units available for purchase in this build-ing, but not for rent. It’s important for buyers to feel comfortable with their decision, but the inventory in desirable areas here is dwin-dling. With sales prices increasing and inventory decreasing, if there is a unit avail-able at a great price in the location that a client desires — it is the right time to consider the purchase. With market conditions in favor of low mortgage rates, why pay rent instead of owning? Clients can now own for about the same cost of renting in high season. With times changing and market conditions stabilizing — if you have the means to purchase, it is a great time to buy.

LMC will now be able to monitor not only centimeter accurate locations but altitude as well. This will be extremely helpful during periods of erosion and storm activity. An altitude measurement will allow researchers to know with certainty whether a nest has been washed out. It will also improve the ability to map beach profiles and changes in dunes and high water lines. The added benefits of this new system will allow LMC to collect measurements that many dont have.

Most of the sea turtles that come to South Florida do not lay their eggs en masse, prefer-ring a solitary landing by night to burrow a nest, deposit their eggs then return to the sea. But Palm Beach Gardens will be home to an arribada of its own, as The Gardens Mall and PNC Bank host Art Arribada,Ž a gathering of eight sea turtle sculptures decorated by area high school students. This arribada, which benefits the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, arrives Aug. 10 at the malls Grand Court, where visi-tors can see the reptile replicas in all their decorated glory and vote for their favorites.

A22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 9-15, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Against my better judgment, I asked the man Im dating to take a relationship quiz from this months issue of O Maga-zine, Oprahs positivity-focused, light-on-the-sex-tips, you-dont-really-need-a-man monthly glossy. August is billed as The Quiz Issue,Ž and I thought my boyfriend and I might give the romance questions a try. Research suggests that couples must share at least three essential qualities to feel fulfilled in a partnership,Ž the editors wrote in a blurb prefacing the quiz. They are the non-negotiables, the must-haves „ and theyre different for everyone.Ž Looking over the questions and the score-based results at the end, I had the sinking feeling that my beau and I would wind up with dramatically dif-ferent results. But, as it turns out, our problems came long before we made it to the scoring. Over the phone, I started to read through the list of questions, but we hit a snag around number four. I appreciate a good, rousing pep talk now and again,Ž I quoted from the magazine. Now do you think thats not at all true, somewhat true, mostly true or very true?Ž He was quiet for a minute, seeming to think it over. An arousing talk?Ž he said. Yeah, I like that. Very true.Ž No, no,Ž I said. Rousing. A rousing pep talk.Ž Arousing pep talk? Sounds great to me.Ž I shook my head. Ill mark you for very true.Ž We sailed smoothly for the next few ques-tions, but we soon bogged down again. I enjoy dishing about all the details of my day,Ž I began to read from the maga-zine, but I stopped myself. Dishing? It struck me what a distinctively female word that is, the kind a man would never use. I enjoy „ er, telling „ about all the details of my day,Ž I tried again. Very true,Ž the man Im seeing said. Granted, I pulled the quiz from a wom-ans magazine and the questions are tailored to a female perspec-tive „ #6: In a per-fect world, my partner would notice when I wear a new dress „ but what a shock to realize it wasnt just the content that was gender-specific, but the vocabulary itself. Could this be the root of so many relationship miscommunications, the fact that men and women are literally speaking different languages? I frequently see couples together at bars and restaurants where the women talk and talk and the men sit glassy-eyed and focused elsewhere. I recognize that look. Ive been to dinner parties abroad where everyone at the table was speaking French or Spanish and I caught 90 percent of what was said, but the important words, the words the entire conver-sation turned on, elud-ed me. Often, I found myself mentally slipping away. Id like to think of this male/female lin-guistic divide as more subtle, like the differ-ence between American and British English. Sure the Brits say looŽ while we say bathroomŽ; they say wankerŽ while we say „ well, we dont say anything like that. But, my point is, if we pay attention, if we commit to communicating what we really want in a rela-tionship, perhaps we can overcome the funda-mental differences that divide us. Or maybe we just need a good translator. Q p artis SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSLost in translation

The 2012 Palm Beach Idols were: adult winner Murray The KayŽ Rivette, 80, of Delray Beach, who sang As Time Goes ByŽ and played harmonica; teen winner Kristy Jo Jabouin, 16, of Wel-lington, who sang a special version of Hallelujah,Ž and youth winner Sivan Ben-David, 10, of Fort Lauderdale, who sang Waiting For LifeŽ from the Broad-way musical Once On This Island.Ž A total of 25 acts performed, chosen from nearly 100 who auditioned. The show included contestants of all ages, with talents that included sing-ing, dancing and those playing musical instruments. A total of $2,625 in cash prizes was given to the winners in each category, chosen by the audience and a panel of celebrity judges. The audience response was absolutely fantastic this year. The contes-tants were all very talented, and Im sure it was very difficult for the judges and audience to choose the winners,Ž said Eileen Weissmann, the events pro-ducer and guild member. The show is an annual fundraiser for the guild, which raises money to support the the-ater and its conservatory.

The North-South pair in the auction shown were Simon Becker and B. Jay Becker, this writers uncle and father, respectively, both of whom passed away in the late 1980s. The brothers Becker reached a shaky spade slam and were very fortunate to receive the opening lead of the ace of clubs, after which 12 tricks could not be denied. Had West led a trump, or had he led another suit and then shifted to a trump upon winning the ace of clubs, the slam could not have been made. The score came to 1,430 points (500 for game, 750 for slam and 180 for tricks). Both Beckers thought they had won the board easily. They expected that even if the opposing North-South pair got to the slam, it would be defeated. But there was no way they could have anticipated the actual goings-on at the other table. There, the Beckers teammates competed vigorously in hearts against North-Souths spade bids. When South eventually bid four spades, West, for some unknown reason, decided to dou-ble, and South redoubled. West led the king of hearts and subsequently switched to a trump after taking the king of clubs with the ace. This held declarer to 11 tricks. After such a debacle, the Beckers teammates naturally assumed the board had been irretrievably lost. The declarer at this table scored 480 points for his tricks, 50 for making the redoubled contract, 400 for the redou-bled overtrick and 500 for game. This came to 1,430 points, so the two teams wound up tying the board! Q

The turtles were displayed at branches of PNC Bank before their arribada at The Gardens Mall. The turtles will be auctioned off Aug. 16 during a private cocktail party, with all proceeds benefiting the Marinelife Center. I am absolutely overwhelmed by the creativity in Palm Beach and in the school system. These kids went just above and beyond my expectations. There are just so many different per-sonalities from each of the schools,Ž said Michele Jacobs, corporate director of marketing/operations for The Forbes Co., which owns The Gardens Mall. The idea for the event came from a Marinelife Center volunteer, said Debo-rah Jaffe, development director for the sea turtle rehabilitation center. The turtle sculptures showcase the heart and soul of the school. They have all been checking on their turtles throughout the summer,Ž she said of the student artists. I think its a tremen-dous amount of love and heart and soul that they put into it, which is no differ-ent than for us when a sea turtle patient comes into the Marinelife Center.Ž On Aug. 18, visitors to the mall can get a first-hand look at the work of the Marinelife Center during Marinelife Day. The kid-friendly, science-oriented event, set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will offer presentations on turtles and marine life, and interactive stations will be based on research, rehabilitation, education and conservation themes. Kids can meet and have photos taken with the Marinelife Centers mascot, Fletch, and there will be prizes and giveaways throughout the event. Im just so excited about the Marinelife Day and how it will be edu-cating thousands and thousands of peo-ple in our community about conserva-tion,Ž Ms. Jaffe said. It also is part of the malls commitment to education. We took a page out of Celebrate Science for Marinelife Day,Ž Ms. Jacobs said, referring to the demonstration day the mall holds in conjunction with The Scripps Research Institute. Its educa-tional and interactive. It becomes mul-tigenerational and families can share special memories together.Ž And, of course, the event also is a way for the mall to help the Marinelife Cen-ter raise money. Ms. Jaffe said organizers hope to raise $30,000 for the Marinelife Center, both through the auction of the turtle sculp-tures and the Aug. 18 Marinelife Day, in which mall customers can Shop & ShareŽ by bringing their same-day receipts to the information desk, where sales will be tallied and the mall will donate 5 percent of tracked sales to the center. Fundraising is challenging any time of the year, but the public relations side of the job is relatively easy for the Marinelife Center, Ms. Jaffe said, espe-cially when people see baby sea turtles. We are so blessed. People fall in love with them when they see them. Theyre tiny amazing creatures.Ž Q ARRIBADAFrom page 21 >>What: “Art Arribada” >>When: The Gardens Mall, 3101 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens>>Where: Exhibition is open mall hours Aug. 10-19.
