A22 X When most people think of the Honda Classic, they think of golf. But, like most golf tournaments, the event actually is about raising money to help others. And the celebrities?Ken Kennerly, executive director of the Classic, was hopeful there would be a little Tiger in this years tank. And his wish is coming true: Tiger Woods has committed to play in the Classic, set for Feb. 23-March 3 at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. This years tournament purse is $5.8 million; winners share is $1,054,000. Mr. Woods appearance last year no doubt helped boost attendance figures to more than 161,700, and raised $1.85 million for charity. We eclipsed 160,000 last year,Ž Mr. Kennerly said. That obviously was with Tiger and Rory McIlroy playing.Ž The Classic has an opportunity to build on that. We hope to eclipse that this year. I think the build-out were putting for this year is significantly larger,Ž he said. Were building the wow factor.Ž All of which means more money for area charities. The Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation, headed by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, is the main recipi-ent of money raised by the Classic. But more than 60 other agencies also can apply for grants from the Classic. Its need-based,Ž Mr. Kennerly said. They submit to us their needs and we respond accordingly.Ž It also is money that makes a big difference. The funds from the Honda Classic are really funds that help us pro-vide direct services to children,Ž said Mary T. OConnor, president and chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. Those programs originate from 13 clubs throughout the county (includ-ing seven in the Glades).

Nor do we inhabit a place called the United States of America „ not unless you define the word menŽ narr owly. We hold these truths to be sacred and un-deniable,Ž wrote Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.Ž When he handed the statement to Benjamin Franklin in the summer of 1776, the per-snickety editor changed Jeffersons original phrase to self-evident,Ž and let the rest go. And that did it. The two rebels had branded their words into the hide of our national character in the most clear and unambiguous way. Jefferson, educated in Greek and Roman classics and the philosophy of such thinkers as John Locke, used the word menŽ to mean humanity,Ž as classicists traditionally did. And all of that was long ago and far away, in another galaxy, apparently. We still cant bring ourselves to mean humanity,Ž 237 years later. Instead, we still mean men,Ž literally. Especially white men. Im not beating an old drum, here. History, along with some very current statistics from the federal Bureau of Labor, prove that with-out a doubt.Thus, as a society, we live somewhere else, somewhere that lies a century or two behind the current country and calendar we claim to possess. In short, we trail along in the back-wash of American time like the oily roll of a boats wake. The most undeniable historic example of this is slavery. Highlighted more or less by playwright-turned-screenwriter Tony Kush-ner and director Steven Spielberg in the film LincolnŽ (a good bet on Oscar night, this week), slavery was abolished as an institu-tional practice during the Civil War „ at least on the calendar. The war ended in 1865. Did we then move blacks directly into the all menŽ category defined by Jefferson, either that year or the next as one might expect „ or even by the 20th century, still 35 years away? Not quite. The calendar rolled on without all men created equal right through the dawn of flight, two world wars, the Korean War, and the Way-Down-in-the-Delta blues, who had a baby and named it „ not just Elvis „ rock n roll, as McKinley Morganfield once noted. Blacks were treated not just as secondclass citizens across that vast swath of Ameri-can time, but as second-class citizens who got to the party through the back door, carrying a highly contagious disease evidenced by the color of their skin. Other people, not black, went out of their way to throw them out, hold them back, cast them into generations of poverty and abuse, and generally mistreat them. The Civil Rights Act itself, which aimed to end a history characterized by lynchings, conscript labor, voting-rights abuses, segre-gation from white neighborhoods, segrega-tion from white businesses, segregation from white churches, white schools and white life, became law in 1964. I was already 11 years old.That was exactly 101 years after President Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation, and 99 years after Robert E. Lees surrender to Lincolns unwavering bottom line, Ulysses S. Grant. Even then, of course, we still couldnt turn the calendar page forward far enough to reach 1865 „ not all of us. In such Florida counties as Collier and Lee (but not Charlo tte) on the west coast, or Palm Beach County on the east, school desegrega-tion continued until federal judicial threats forced those school districts to comply, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. But so what „ isnt that all behind us?Well, no. We still havent figured out what Jefferson meant when he wrote, All men.Ž As a general rule, women, especially black and Hispanic women, do not get paid as much as their male counterparts, according to the most recent reports from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Released last month, these figures are telling: in the fourth quarter of last year, women who worked full time earned a median weekly salary of $692, which is less than 80 percent of the salaries of men, who made $875. Now things get more complicated. Black and Hispanic working women made a greater percentage than white working women of the salaries their black and Hispanic male counterparts could make: 87.4 percent for black women, and 86.6 percent for Hispanic women. Asian working women, meanwhile, made only 71.6 percent of the salaries of Asian working men. But the flip-side statistic is that black and Hispanic men made only $680 per week (black) or $571 per week (Hispanic) „ sig-nificantly less than white men. Which means black and Hispanic women are the worst paid, and by extension the worst treated people in the country. (Asian males, by the way, made a median weekly salary of $910, according to the Labor Bureau, even more than white males. Thus, Asian women, paid only 71.6 percent of that, still made a median weekly salary of $652, more than black and Hispanic women, and Hispanic males). And that aint cool at all.There are many factors the statistics dont point to, of course, including these two: the fact that women who get out of the labor force to have babies and raise them, then return, take tremendous professional hits in money and status, something compensated for in many other Western nations. The fact that blacks and Hispanics sometimes are not as well educated as Asians or whites. But those factors point back to the same problem „ the same problem weve had all along, apparently: Many of us cant figure out what the hell Jefferson meant when he wrote, All men are created equal.Ž The notion is sacred. Its undeniable. Its self-evident,Ž isnt it? Someday, I want to turn the calendar page to a new month and year, and see not Janu-ary,Ž or February,Ž or March,Ž or any other month or year appear in an old Gregorian cal-endar (created in 1582, a mere 196 years before Jefferson and Franklin branded our character). I just want to see this written across the top: From here on out, All men are created equal.Ž But thatll have to come in another time and place, I imagine. Q COMMENTARYAll men s t p w b roger

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONObama’s Benghazi success amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The Obama White House is to be congratulated. It has executed one of the most effective stonewalls in recent memory over the Benghazi attack last Sept. 11 that killed our ambassador to Libya and three others. Its handling of the aftermath of the debacle is a model example of the power of obfuscation and delay. Future high-ranking officials please take note: This is how it is done. All the smart PR gurus say it is best to release bad news as soon as possible to get ahead of the story.Ž The Obama White House wasnt foolish enough to follow this hackneyed advice. It advanced laughably implausible expla-nations for the attack from the first and has refused to provide a full accounting of its handling of it to this day. The imperative for the White House was, first, to try to deny that the assault was a coordinated terrorist attack lest that undermine its anti-terror creden-tials and, second, to push further consid-eration of the matter past the November election. After that, there would be, by definition, no electoral consequences from more fallout. So the Accountability Review Board report from the State Department was scheduled to hit ... in December. When asked about Benghazi during the cam-paign, the president could aver, Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do.Ž Of course, President Barack Obama always knew what he did or did not do during the course of the eight-hour attack that started at the consulate and continued at a safe house. If he had covered himself in glory, surely he or someone close to him would have let reporters know. Instead, nothing. Time passed, and he won re-election. When Congress got around to its Benghazi hearings, BenghaziŽ had become a watchword for right-wing obsessiveness and lack of perspective. Polite commentators could barely suppress a snicker w hen utt ering the word. The other week, outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed under questioning that after a previously scheduled meeting with the president at the White House at 5 p.m. at the outset of the attacks, he had no other communication from the president or anyone else at the White House the rest of the night. Neither, according to his own testimony, did Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey. This raises the question of what President Obama was doing during the long hours of an attack that killed a U.S. ambassador for the first time since 1979. Or it should raise the question. The press isnt much interested in asking it. Given the opportunity to query the president directly in his joint interview with President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Steve Kroft of 60 MinutesŽ stuck to more pressing matters, like any sense of guilt Clinton might feel about not preventing the attacks. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina vows to hold up Obama administration nominees until he gets answers. His determination is admira-ble, but by now, no one really cares. The stonewall worked, alas. Benghazi was a fiasco. The handling of its aftermath by President Obama and his team was bril-liant. I guess thats why they call him the commander in chief. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.For the first time, Sierra Club engages in a protestFor the first time in its 120-year history, the Sierra Club engaged in civil disobedience, the day after President Barack Obama gave his 2013 State of the Union address. The group joined scores of others protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which awaits a permitting decision from the Obama administration. The president made sig-nificant pledges to address the growing threat of climate change in his speech. But it will take more than words to save the planet from human-induced climate disruption, and a growing, diverse move-ment is directing its focus on the White House to demand meaningful action. The Keystone XL pipeline is especially controversial because it will allow the exploitation of Canadian tar sands, considered the dirtiest oil source on the planet. One of the leading voices rais-ing alarm about climate change, James Hansen, the director of the NASA God-dard Institute for Space Studies, wrote of the tar sands in The New York Times last year, If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate.Ž New research by nonprofit Oil Change International indicates that the potential tar-sands impact will be even worse than earlier believed. Because the proposed pipeline crosses the border between the U.S. and Canada, its owner, TransCanada Corp., must receive per-mission from the U.S. State Department. Among those arrested outside the White House was Julian Bond, former chair of the NAACP. Bond said, The threat to our planets climate is both grave and urgent. ... I am proud today to stand before my fellow citizens and declare, I am willing to go to jail to stop this wrong. The environmental crisis we face today demands nothing less.Ž Two weeks of protests at the White House in the summer of 2011 led to the arrest of 1,252 people. Later, in Novem-ber, thousands more joined to encircle 1600 Penn sylv ania Ave., calling for denial of the Keystone XL permit. Days later, President Obama announced he would delay the decision until 2013, after the election. He later granted permission to build the southern leg of the pipeline, from Oklahoma through Texas. That decision sparked protests from land-owners and environmentalists, includ-ing a nonviolent direct-action blockade campaign in Texas, with people chained to pipeline equipment and occupying land with tree-sits to halt construction. Early in the permit process, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was inclined to approve the pipeline, even though the State Departments mandatory review was incomplete. Con-troversy erupted when The Washington Post reported that TransCanadas lobby-ist for the pipeline in D.C., Paul Elliott, was a senior staffer on Hillary Clin-tons 2008 presidential campaign. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, headed by Obama-appointee Lisa Jack-son, had been critical of the pipeline. When Jackson resigned unexpectedly late last December, the New York Post reported, based on an unnamed Jack-son insider,Ž She will not be the EPA head when Obama supports it (Key-stone) getting built.Ž Jacksons spokes-person denied the allegation. Obamas new secretary of state, John Kerry, weighed in on Keystone XL after his first official meeting with a foreign dignitary, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird. Kerry said: Secretary Clin-ton has put in place a very open and transparent process, which I am com-mitted to seeing through. I can guaran-tee you that it will be fair and transpar-ent, accountable, and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term.Ž In his State of the Union address, Obama gave hope to those concerned with global warming, saying, For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. ... We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wild-fires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science „ and act before its too late.Ž This Presidents Day weekend will see what is expected to be the larg-est climate-change protest in history, called Forward on Climate. One hun-dred thirty-five organizations are par-ticipating, including the Sierra Club, the Indigenous Environmental Network and The Sierra Club is one of the worlds largest and most powerful envi-ronmental organizations. Its decision to participate in civil disobedience signals a major escalation in the movement to stem climate change, reviving the words of the Sierra Clubs first president, John Muir, who wrote in 1892, Hoping that we will be able to do something for wildness and make the mountains glad.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America.

These days, I cant remember the last time I put one on a dog, and I may never feel the need to do so again. Thats because the options for training and control have changed, and are now easier on dog and owner alike. The choke chain was never without problems. In the old days, the important thing to remember was to never leave the collar on your dog unless you were training or walking. It is, after all, a choke collar, and over the years Ive heard from readers whose dogs died when the collar rings became caught on the tooth of another dog in play, on a piece of fencing in the yard or even a heater grate in the house. In other cases, dogs were injured and traumatized, and the owners who saved their lives by getting them free of the collars deadly grip were often bitten by their terrified dogs. This is what it has come down to, for me: If your dog is wearing a choke-chain collar as his everyday collar, replace it with a buckle or snap-together collar today. And then, like many trainers and behaviorists, I advise that when you take that chain collar off, you throw it away. Some good dog trainers still use slipstyle collars and leads, at least some of the time, and theyre still the top choice for almost escape-proof handling in vet-erinary hospitals. But this is a piece of equipment thats nearly impossible for the average dog owner to use properly. When the col-lar isnt used properly, its ineffective at best, and cruel at worst. There are only two ways to put on a choke-chain collar: with the moving end over the dogs neck (as intended), or under the dogs neck (incorrect). By the simplest law of averages, youd think folks would get them on right half the time, but it never seems to work that way. When the moving part of the chain is under the dogs neck, the chain doesnt release easily when the leash is slackened. And that means the collar is constantly tight, choking the dog. Even if the collars put on correctly, the choke collar is very difficult to use in the way that expert dog trainers have over the years. A choke-chain collar is meant to be loose at all times, except for the occa-sional split-second tightening to correct a dogs behavior. But people dont seem to know that, so I am always seeing gasping dogs in tight choke chains dragging their owners behind them. These days, my advice on choke chains is this: Dont bother. Get the help of a good trainer to choose training equipment thats not so hard to master „ and learn how to use it. For some dogs, a buckle or snap-together collar will be all you need, or a limited-slip collar known as a martingale.Ž For others, a head halter or front-clip harness will work best. The pinch collar has advocates, too. It looks horrific, but it cant tighten down to choke a dog the way a slip-lead col-lar can. Theyre all easier for the average person to use, and less likely to cause unintentional harm than a slip-lead col-lar. And thats why after so many years of giving advice, Ive changed my rec-ommendation on this topic. You simply dont need to master the choke-chain collar to teach any old dog new tricks anymore. Q PET TALESOff the chainFor most dog owners, the ‘choke’ collar is a poor choice The slip-lead or “choke-chain” collar has been used for generations, but better options for training and control are available today. >>Clover is a 3-year-old spayed Labrador Retriever mix.

In 2013, it received a major cash infusion. Marshall Field V, great-greatgrandson of the man who found-ed Chicagos landmark department store chain, and his wife, Jamee, have given the community chest a $100,000 cash donation and have made a multimillion-dollar bequest. It is part of a plan Mr. Field said he and his wife made to give back to the community. Youre getting a shotgun approach with one gift that has been vetted by the trust. Its the most efficient way to give money,Ž Mr. Field, 71, said from his home on Jupiter Island. That is similar to something he did a few years ago, when he trans-ferred the assets of his family trust to The Chicago Community Trust. According to Crains Chicago Business, Mr. Field oversees a $500 million fundraising effort for the Chicago Community Trust endow-ment, which has raised $300 million. It goes without saying that the Hobe Sound Community Chests new president, Peter Pauley, is thrilled. Its a wonderful thing the Fields are doing, and the one big part is that our mission is the same as what he wants to do. He focuses entirely on agencies that help the people of Hobe Sound,Ž Mr. Pauley said. The community chest is an umbrella organization that offers grants to a variety of groups within the vicinity of Hobe Sound „ agen-cies ranging from the Hobe Sound Child Care Center and the Martin County Healthy Start Coalition to the local chapter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County and the Hobe Sound Soccer Club to the Hobe Sound Nature Center. Were totally focused on helping Hobe Sound as a community, and the 42 agencies we help have a wide area that they cover,Ž Mr. Pauley said. Its great. Thats the whole reason for the thing,Ž Mr. Field said. I guess its about the biggest thing thats ever happened to us as far as sustaining and guaranteeing the future of the organization,Ž Mr. Pauley said. He hopes that will be contagious.The second part of what he wants to do is to encourage others to do something similar, of course, within their means,Ž Mr. Pauley said. We cant ask everyone to do what Mar-shall Field and Jamee Field will do, but everybody can give something.Ž This is a transformative event for the community chest. This represents the future of the Hobe Sound Community Chest,Ž Mr. Pauley said. He explained the grant process.Our board meets with each agency, and we carefully put together questionnaires when they request a grant,Ž Mr. Pauley said. They answer some very key questions.Ž Board members have an active role. They go out and see the agency at work and ask questions about what they do to help the people of Hobe Sound,Ž he said. Jupiter Island is just across the bridge, and it is a place of great wealth. But that is across the water.There are a lot of needy people in the Hobe Sound area. Its just amaz-ing what you do find out when you go around,Ž Mr. Pauley said. That makes crossing the bridge just a little easier for its residents. From where we are, it is on an island and there is zoning with no high rises. You drive across the bridge and leave everything behind,Ž Mr. Field said. Its the place for tranquility and its not super fancy, but everybody gets to do their own things, as long as its two-story or less.Ž Mr. Field, noted for his angling, used to fish along the Treasure Coast. I used to fish her for sailfish, but global warming has moved them north,Ž he said. Still, the area remains a little corner of paradise for him and his wife „ never mind the mini-theme parks that singer Celine Dion and golfer Tiger Woods have built at their homes. But regardless of where its supporters live, the community chests Mr. Pauley said he hopes his agency will bring other groups together. My motto is Collaboration, not competition, with a whole wave of cooperation between agencies,Ž he said. Its logical.Thats the way to leverage so that you get the best results for the com-munity, instead of trying to fight for the dollar that is there to grab,Ž he said.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYWhat really makes it possible, though, is an unsung equipment crew like this. In moments, they will start setting up The Show, Palm Beach Countys annual springtime cavalcade of professional baseball. Residents and visitors can see what they brought in action on the field for the next two months at Roger Dean, where the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins will take on some of baseballs best, Braves, Yankees, Red Sox, Nationals, the sto-ried and beleaguered Mets, with 35 home games (the Marlins 16, the Cardi-nals 19) on the Florida spring training circuit through March 28. After that, some of the players will stay and play through the summer with the Class A-Advanced level Palm Beach Cardi-nals and Jupiter Hammerheads. All of them will rely on the equipment crew for the tools, and the threads, of their trade. Like kids lifting a tent flap to peek into the Big Top, fans (mostly of an older vintage) haunt the gates at Roger Dean, hoping for a sighting of some-thing „ or someone „ wondrous. None of the fans is here, just now, to witness the moving vans with Missouri license plates wheeze to a halt and a crew pop open the rear doors. In moments, Cardinals Equipment Manager Rip Rowan and assistant Frank Moore and clubhouse manager Wayne McClanan and their colleagues have slid ramps into place, marshaled a caravan of carts and hand trucks and started attacking the packed-in load, often with their bare (or gloved) hands. They are magicians, sorting, packing, unpacking, distributing and shelving, and also pack mules, hefting a lot of the heavy stuff themselves. Its hot work. Those who came down from winter seem to wear the mantles of sweat across the shoulders of their work shirts happily. It was in the 20s (F.) when we left St. Louis,Ž Chuck Rowan says. Most of these guys are way beyond roustabouts, starting with the drivers. Sherrell Byrd III and Bob Amelung of A-Mrazek Moving Systems and United Van Lines, St. Louis, made their way down in a day and a half. The Cardi-nals have brought in local workers, too, from a Bohrens Moving and Storage affiliate, partner to these migrations for some 25 years. You feel like youre part of something, here,Ž Mr. Amelung says. The northerly newcomers can envy the shorter, warmer trip of Marlins equipment manager John Silverman and his crew from Miami. Other years have bedeviled the Missourians with more harrowing trips, through snow and ice, wind and heavy rain. This year, a major winter storm spiraled up and away from them, and they pushed into a gentle southern breeze. Not eventful, which is a good thing,Ž Mr. Byrd says. No rain, no snow.Ž In his 19th year in the business, he appre-ciates the Cardinals. They trust us,Ž he says. Once we load up, they let us be. We can use our own locks on the truck, deal with the same guys every year. This is easier than most household moves.Ž On this local warm ground, a humbler parade shifts „ and sometimes duck-walks „ goods from the trucks to springtime stowage. Balls, 5,400 of them, and bats, a hundred dozen, rattle in cardboard boxes. Stacks of folded uniforms and under-things and over-things „ light jackets, heavy jackets „ rustle in plastic bins, labeled with the likes of Training shorts,Ž No-cup jocks,Ž Gray Nike underwear,Ž Logo Tees,Ž and behind them come shrinkwrapped packs of Gatorade and Pow-erade and spring water and diet soda. The workers are not quite sure what to do with a baby car seat and a Trek mountain bike and a few sets of golf clubs; Pat Kramer is trying to find the right place for dumbbell racks. A Har-ley-Davidson motorcycle, being rolled off backward, almost knocks Jerry Rich sideways. The Harley belongs to Car-dinals Strength Coach Pete Prinzi, and so, it turns out, does a Radio Flyer red wagon, brought for one of his kids. In this enterprise, families are often included, especially young ones. This is not, after all, a weekend visit. Its a two-month sojourn, punctuated by players and coaches, veterans shaking into shape and younger bucks pushing to make the major leagues or land on a higher rung in the minors. Its also, of course, Sport. Entertainment. The arrival of the vans is a pre-amble to a spring of pomp and primp and circumstance. Hey, the stadium is even bringing in, on Feb. 28 (1-4 p.m.), the massive horses and gilded wagon of the Budweiser Clydesdales. Can the clowns and calliope be far behind? (In the house, regardless, will be, in full ad-lib gesticulation, P.B. Cardinals and Hammerheads mascots Robbie the Redbird and Hamilton R. Head). An air gun will fire T-shirts into the stands, again. Kids will compete in quirky con-tests on the bases, again. The most crucial action just now, though, is beyond public view. Roger Dean Stadium hides its workspace in a warren of hallways and offices and utility areas. This is the realm of what old-school baseballers used to call the Brain Trust, executives and coaches and scouts and the keepers of playing fields and concessions and hardware. Even after some of the old gray matter firmed and also deliquesced into the pixels and applications of computers, the enterprise still relies on plenty of human calculation and cooperation. Underneath, you can still find the Brawn Trust, where the featured play-ers come for costume and counsel and emergency replacement gear and much more. Rip Rowan commands the Equipment Rooms. A few days after arrival, everything out from the vans has been sorted and placed. Bright Cardinal-red batting helmets hang from a rack of aluminum tubes, which he and his crew fashioned a decade ago. Clothes mound in plastic bins, stacked to the ceiling. Wood bats nestle in diamond-shaped cubbie-holes, some marked by uniform numbers, some with Long Fungos, Short Fungos, Misc. Fungos.Ž Mr. Rowan keeps a close eye on baseballs. I keep them locked in the cage, right here.,Ž he says Its a lot of expense. I spend probably $250,000 a year on baseballs.Ž Watching so many being given away to fans, he says, drives me up a wall.Ž But he knows that the whole industry is fan-friendly. Industry applies to the team personnel, too. Shelves nearby display office supplies „ chalk, highlighters, Sharp-ies, rubber bands „ and foodstuffs and spices, Aunt Jemima whole wheat pan-cakes, Jif peanut butter, marinara sauce, rice and black beans. Equipment crews handle the care and also the feeding of the players, coaches and managers. When I started, you didnt have a whole lot of food. You had a post-game spread. Nowadays we have a chef, Simon Lusky. His job is preparing food, mine is (to) budget it and purchase it. We have some pretty crazy stuff. Ive gotten phone calls from a fish company in Holland, going to ship the fish that day. When he prepares it, its cheaper than going out and getting it catered. These guys get a hot meal, 7 oclock game, guys show up at the park at 1, hot meal at one, batting practice in the afternoon, and then another hot meal after the game. These guys spend a lot of time in training and preparation. They dont just show up at the ball park. The stuff we do serve, we dont give em cookies; now its Nutra-Grain bars.Ž They handle the laundry, too. A LOT of laundry, enough to keep two sets of Belco Washer-Extractors and Belco Athletic Dryers running most of the day, every day. Its a continual process,Ž the equipment manager says. Players may come in at 6 oclock, catchers at 7, done working by 7:45, change clothes, go out and practice at 9, more clothes, change shirts, go back out for a game, come back in, work out, change again. We keep all of those clothes clean and ready.Ž Some of the process might seem a high-wire act. For Mr. Rowan and his staff, though, the efforts are downlow and up close. They are also fully sea-soned. Hes been at the ob, himself, for 17 years. Some have been working at this from childhood. Coming off a nearby practice field, five young players announce them-selves with a staccato clacking of cleats on concrete. Out in the hall, one player scuttles half-bent with a band around his belly with a teammate running behind. Rip Rowan prefers a quieter approach. Cast as ringmaster, he would turn down the part. Usually, the camera comes on and I try to steer around it and stay in the background,Ž he says. The less noticed you are, the better off you are.Ž He IS, though, the architect of these moves, the wagon master and also the quartermaster, and he will continue to serve the Cardinals in that role through the nomadic major league season, where teams play 82 of their 164 games on the road. For this (spring training), you pack PLAY BALLFrom page 1 JOHN SESSA/FLORIDA WEEKLYABOVE: Moving crews haul St. Louis Cardinals equipment into Roger Dean Stadium.LEFT: Team staff members have stocked play-ers’ lockers with towels and uniforms.


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 NEWS A9 everything but the kitchen sink in St. Louis; pretty much everything comes down,Ž Mr. Rowan says. When we pack for a road trip, I have one section of our storeroom with the road gear, and the day we leave on the road, well put the players bags out, and we pack their necessities, make sure that those guys have two uniforms, two road uniforms, pitchers have got the jacket, Yadi (catcher Yadier Molina) has got his road gear. Ive got my set of 8 to 10 bags I pack myself. Weve done it so long its second-nature.Ž Emotion has its place, too. For many, baseball is a family ... one that draws in, and sometimes disturbs, families of their own. Rip Rowan is father to four sons, Jake, 18, Brennan, 14, 2-year-old Matt and Brooks, age 10 weeks. Hed like to see more of them. Like most in and near the game, Mr. Rowan started young, too. He grew up in St. Louis wearing Cardinals red, and he didnt have to run away to join them. His father, Ken, worked for an affili-ate of the Anheuser-Busch Co. that ran Busch Stadium. If I carried good grades at school,Ž Mr. Rowan recalls, Dad would take me to work. I guess I was 13, and they called my Dad and said, Kenny, we need a bat boy today. I filled in a couple of times, and the next year, when I was 14, they called me and said theyd like me to be batboy full-time. I started doing it in 1978, did that about two years and then I moved inside the clubhouse. In 1982, Butch Yatkeman, who had been the equipment manager for 59 years retired, and my former boss, Buddy Bates, took me over to the home side. I was looking to get over to Anheuser-Busch, maybe looking for a change in my life, I interviewed for a few positions in marketing, my background in school, and about then Buddy pulled me in and said he couldnt do the job too much longer and wanted me to take over. Did I want to try to have an office position and have weekends off and be a normal guy, or did I want to stay in this crazy game and work these hours?Ž He stayed in the crazy game. Well, Ive been very blessed here and fortu-nate to work here, work for the Cardi-nals,Ž he says. From ownership down to the bottom, people here are tremen-dous people.Ž Those people include players he had only dreamed of meeting. Ted Simmons (a veteran catcher who also played outfield) was probably my favorite guy, my idol growing up, and then I got to know him. I loved Red Schoendienst (still going at age 90), and. I loved Bob Gibson (among the games greatest pitchers), too. I love who they are as people.Ž Now, he and his staff answer to the likes of manager Mike Matheny and to Chris Carpenter, David Freese, Rafael Furcal, Carlos Beltran and the full roster of other major leaguers ... and, here, many more minor-leaguers, too. Demands come daily, sometimes min-ute-by-minute. Their job, he says, is to answer every one, pronto. Custom bats come in multiples, and players have their own glove and shoe contracts. Rip Rowan and his staff handle the ordering. I dont think we need a whole lot of gloves,Ž he says. Bruce Sutter (the now-retired Hall-ofFame saves leader) signed a contract with Wilson when he broke into Major League baseball, and he used one glove until he retired. They get pretty attached to those things. Yadi may use one (glove) a year and break in another one. Nick Punto, when we had him, he left a glove in Philadelphia and said he couldnt play.Ž An equipment guy fetched it. Above the equipment room, in view from Mr. Rowans office, hangs a bug-eyed kite, relic of a misadventure. Todd Wellemeyer, he was a pitcher here. He was out flying it,Ž Mr. Rowan says. It stuck in a tree somewhere out there. We pulled it down, and I put it up there. Its been up there four or five years.Ž Its likely to stay, too, unless Mr. Wellemeyer comes back to claim it. In the equipment trammel, a little color and cheer never hurts. Here, where hard work is done, the kite seems a reminder that baseball starts as a childrens game, and that youthful dreams keep the more adult enterprise alive. Finished with helping the crew unload the trucks that Feb. 7 morning, Sherrell Byrd looks up at a banner: St. Louis Cardinals, World Champions, 1926-1931-1934-1942-1944-1946-1964-1967-1982-2006-2011. He smiles. I havent seen this in two years,Ž he says. The 2011 wasnt here, the last time.Ž He comes in with his own rig not just from Missouri but from runs to Wyoming and Utah and distant, belea-guered places. What the drivers bring, he says, besides sheer muscular haul-age, is flexibility. They call Tuesday for something they need moved Thurs-day, well find a driver and a truck. Its something we dont brag about,Ž he says. We just do it.Ž Baseball, after all, is nomadic. People might not know you,Ž Mr. Byrd says, but yet youre part of making that machine move.Ž Sure, this is just backstage to the opening act, and The Show must go on. These guys are here to make sure it will. Q JOHN SESSA/FLORIDA WEEKLYSt. Louis Cardinals uniforms are laundered and ready to be worn into the game.


A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYWe offer education programs and impact-driven programs to help kids suc-ceed,Ž Ms. OConnor said. That gives students a leg up.Its truly our belief that if we can help them succeed academically we can help them succeed in life,Ž she said. In her 23 years with the 41-year-old organization, Ms. OConnor has watched the Boys & Girls Clubs grow. When she started, the group had a budget of about $650,000 and had just opened its fourth club. Today, she oversees an organization that serves nearly 7,000 children that has an annual budget of about $10 million. It is about to replace its Wellington club with the $3.6 million Neil S. Hirsch Boys & Girls Club. The timing could not be better.The children are facing more than before in their history „ the negativ-ity that is out there, and the ability for gangs to recruit at a very young age,Ž Ms. OConnor said, adding that the Classic gives her group between $10,000 and $20,000 each year. The neighborhoods are seeing an increase in violence and the abilities for families to provide for themŽ have diminished. Charles Bender, executive director of Place of Hope, said, The Honda Classic is a tremendous organization supporting children in foster care right in their own community.Ž Money from the tournament helped construct the Peter & Fern Barsanti Fam-ily Life Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Mr. Bender said, which addresses educa-tional, therapeutic and recreational needs of foster children. Funds also are used to provide for daily need of children who have been abused or neglected, he said. Some of the Classics charities simply make a difference in the community. We use that money for our children who are in financial need and their par-ents cant afford to help them pay for our program,Ž said Beth Clark, executive director of the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches. Ms. Clarks group is very hands-on at the Classic, where volunteers staff the beer and food concessions. Were a charity that works the event. All the money that we raise „ tips „ the percentage of the food that is sold will be used for our program. We have 60 chil-dren on financial aid. Its a really impor-tant part of our yearly work,Ž she said. Ms. Clark said her group received a $5,000 grant last year. But we made almost $10,000 that was our percentage of working the food booths. Fifteen thousand dollars goes a really long way in our organization,Ž she said. Its not just the money. By working the Honda Classic, it brings our parents together and its almost a team-building exercise,Ž Ms. Clark said. Our parents really come together. Our families do. Then they become friends with the people they work with.Ž That is an important part of building a group that over the past decade has grown from two choirs with 69 singers to six choirs with a total of 350 young vocal-ists. It has two summer programs that engage 200 to 300 kids ages 8 to 18. But for some of the Classics beneficiaries, the money helps make the differ-ence between life and death. The Amara Shrine Center of Palm Beach Gardens receives a grant to help transport young patients to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Tampa. Patients of Shriners Hospitals receive free care. All of that goes toward the gas and the insurance and the maintenance on the vans. We have volunteer drivers,Ž said Constance Huntoon, a real estate agent and former First Lady of Amara Shrine. We get money from the Birdies donations plus the 10 percent the Nicklaus Foundation gives us,Ž Mrs. Huntoon said. The Birdies donations come from the Birdies for Children raffle, in which donors can guess at the number of bird-ies made at the Honda Classic. The win-ner will receive a 2013 Honda. Mr. Kennerly said it was a program in which charities whose mission state-ment might not parallel ours can get involved in the tournament.Ž Mrs. Huntoon said she could not provide a dollar figure but that it adds up. We make money from a percentage of the food sales from the concession and we have two beer trucks that we run. Its four long days but its fun,Ž she said. I have to go outside of the organization to get enough workers to cover everything.Ž She knows first hand the level of care Shrine patients receive. My dad was a Shriner. My sister is a Shrine child. She had her scoliosis opera-tion at the Shrine hospital in Lexington,Ž she said. Her sister now speaks out to raise money for the Shrine. For Mr. Kennerly, that underscores the importance of supporting the Classic. He mentions the PGA Tour.The genesis of the tour is to raise money for charity. Even if you go out to buy a $40 ticket and buy a hot dog, some portion of that is going to charity,Ž he said. It is much the same for the Honda Classic. What we have to try to do is reinforce and remind our spectators that theyre going out to support children and fami-lies in need in our community,Ž he said.

Those who have heard it said they could make out only the occasional squeaking of footsteps on the wooden floor (and the very distant hum of passing cars). Said one admiring parish-ioner, “People sometimes like to sit down and just have a bit of peace and quiet.” Q Government in actionQ France has seen its wolf population gradually increase from near-extinction in the 1930s, but still classifies the preda-tor as a “protected” species. However, sheep farmers increasingly complain that wolves’ attacks are reducing their herds. Therefore, in a recently proposed “National Wolf Plan,” the government boldly gave headline-writers around the world material for rejoicing: a national program to “educate” the wolves. Individ-ual wolves known to have attacked sheep would be caught, marked and briefly detained, with the hope that they would learn their lesson from that trauma and from then on, pass up sheep and turn instead to rabbits, boar and deer. (Said one critic, “You might as well try to edu-cate a shark.”) Q The Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration revealed in January that twice as many fraudu-lent income tax refunds were paid to inmates in 2011 (173,000) as for the tax year 2010. However, the IRS claimed that the fraudulent returns it did manage to stop totaled $2.5 billion (almost half of which was disingenuously claimed by two inmates). Also, the Department of Health and Human Service’s inspector general revealed in January that Medicare was illegally billed for $120 million from 2009 to 2011 for services used by inmates and illegal immigrants — neither category of which is authorized to use Medicare. Q As of January, New York City music teacher Aryeh Eller, 46, has almost reached a milestone in his battle with the Board of Education. Soon, he will have earned $1 million dollars in salary and benefits since the board removed him from the classroom 13 years ago and dispatched him to a light-duty “rubber room” after complaints of fondling and sexual harassment in the one year that he actually taught. An arbitrator had found insufficient evidence for his termination, but the board refuses to let him back in the classroom, fearing he is a danger to students. Q Great art! Q Iceland’s menswear designer Sruli Recht’s autumn/winter 2013 collection, debuting in Paris in January, included a ring made from a 4-inch slice of his own skin (removed during recent abdomen surgery, then salted and tanned to give it sturdiness). The ring (called “Forget Me Knot”) carries a price tag of $500,000 — considering that the rest of the ring is 24k gold. Q In Russia’s coldest region (the Siberian republic of Yakutia), artist Mikhail Bopposov created a massive, nearly 900-pound cobra statue (honoring the Chi-nese Year of the Snake) — made entirely of cow dung. Though at this time of the year the sculpture freezes, Bopposov plans to sell it when it melts, since fertil-izer is a valuable commodity during the region’s short summers. (Actually, this is Bopposov’s second foray into dung art, after last year’s winged serpent he created for the Chinese Year of the Dragon.) Q Police blotter Q According to police in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Mark Carroll, 18, masked and armed with a handgun, is the one who threatened and robbed the night-shift clerk at the Maverik convenience store on New Year’s morning. The clerk was Donna Carroll, Mark’s mother, but police said that it was not an “inside” job and that she still does not believe the man behind the mask was her son. Q Sheriff’s deputies in Tampa were searching in January for the thief who stole a wallet from a car and used the victim’s debit card three times — once at a gas station and twice to wash clothes in the laundry room of the Countrywood Apartments. Q Edward Lucas, 33, was arrested in Slidell, La., in November and charged with theft from the sheriff’s department headquarters. Mr. Lucas reportedly had walked in and requested a file, and while he was waiting (as surveillance video later confirmed), he furtively swiped three ball-point pens from the reception area. Q Sheriff’s deputies in Ozaukee County, Wis., identified Shelly Froelich, 48, as the woman who allegedly called the jail in January and asked if Judge Thomas Wolfgram was in, and when informed that he wasn’t but that he’d be in court the following morning, said, “Good. Tell him I have a hit on him.” Deputies said Ms. Froelich’s son was in lockup and that his mom had several times before issued threats to judges after her son had been arrested. Q James Satterfield, 58, was arrested in Cobb County, Ga., in December after police said he wrote a letter to the wife of Judge Reuben Green vowing to eat the couple’s children after “cook(ing) them first to make them more palatable.” Q People with issues Michael Selleneit, 54, pleaded guilty in January to several charges including attempted murder in an October 2011 attack on a neighbor, who Mr. Selleneit had declared was raping Mr. Selleneit’s wife — “telepathically.” In fact, police said, Mr. Selleneit had been making that claim “for years,” though he had not taken action until October 2011. His wife, Meloney, was also charged, as she allegedly goaded her husband on, telling him to “go for it,” and even supplying the gun. Both spouses have been extensively examined by mental health professionals, and it turns out that Michael is the saner of the two. He had been ruled “competent” to stand trial, but Meloney has so far not been. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERD DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

A14 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Hospice foundation gets $15,000 from BB&T SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYBB&T Corp. donated $15,000 to Hospice of Palm Beach County Founda-tion to support the patient programs of Hospice of Palm Beach County that are not reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. The gift is part of an initiative to invest in the local community, which BB&T has become known for, Hospice said in a prepared statement. BB&Ts success is built on a community banking model and supporting the programs and services that strength-en our communities,Ž said Dale Kahle, BB&T senior vice president. I know first-hand what an amazing job Hospic-es do when caring for the families who are facing the end of life. They cared so gently for my grandmother and my older brother, allowing our family the time to focus on each other.Ž David Hamilton, BB&Ts regional corporate banker of Palm Beach County, said in the statement, Hospice helped my grandmother who was suffering from cancer. They cared for her in her own home, where she wanted to be. They were able to make her comfortable so she could spend her final days with the people closest to her. It meant so much to all of us.Ž With BB&Ts support, Hospice is also able to help people who have no insur-ance or the means to pay for their care; those who need special treatments for comfort (such as chemotherapy or transfusions); patients whose symptoms can be relieved by Music Therapy and Massage Therapy; and the hundreds of children and adults throughout our community who benefit from extensive grief support services. These vital programs mean so much to those who need end-of-life care and the loved ones they leave behind,Ž Mr. Hamilton said. BB&T is proud to play a role in making this outstanding level of service possible for the people of our community.Ž Q Juno Beach seeks proposals For 9/11 remembrance projectThe Town of Juno Beach seeks to commission site-specific public art for a 9/11 Remembrance Project at the Juno Beach Town Center.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYPssst! Lots of spouses keep money secrets, but it can damage a marriageCraig looked through the pile of mail. He was sure the American Express yearend summary should have come by now. He was gathering documents for the accountant and had always relied on the Amex summary for a careful analysis of the previous years budget. But, if truth be told, he usually scoured the report to evaluate his wife, Maries, spending over the previous year. But where was it? Come to think of it, he hadnt seen last months credit card statements either. Marie usually paid the household expenses from the family checking account, and had always left the bills on the counter in case he wanted to review them. Craig had a sinking feeling that Marie might be deliberately hiding the invoices. He was loath to confront her after the last blow-up, when hed found two Bloomingdales shopping bags in the back of a closet. He had accused Marie of deceiving him. She had retaliated by screaming he was treating her like a spoiled teenager. She reminded him once again that her salary covered a large portion of the familys bills. Furthermore, she didnt have to answer to him for every purchase. After that last argument, Craig thought he and Marie had finally come up with an understanding that theyd keep each other abreast of any significant purchases. Sadly, the two were still unable to have any sort of discussion about the matter without each of them becoming defensive or hostile. Lets get to the heart of the discussion. In many of our marriages, argu-ments about spending can deteriorate to chilly disdain or belligerent finger pointing. We often come away from these confrontations feeling misunder-stood, criticized and unsupported. Many of us are not fully truthful or forthcoming to our partners about the full extent of our spending. We may think were getting away with it (and, on occasion, we might) but the truth invariably does come out. And when it does, the distance and mistrust created can be enormous. A nationwide survey conducted for MONEY magazine in 2005 by pollsters Mathew Greenwald and Associates asked 1,001 adults (half men and half women) with household incomes of $50,000 or more to share the everyday secrets, little white lies and occasional whoppersŽ about their spending habits. The results were quite telling. A total of 71 percent of the respondents con-fessed theyd kept a moneyŽ secret from a partner. And 44 percent stated that it was ACCEPTABLE to keep financial secrets from a spouse, at least under cer-tain circumstances. Of the married people surveyed, 40 percent admitted theyd told their spouse they had spent less on a pur-chase than they actually had. Women were more likely to have told their husbands they paid less for clothing, shoes and gifts; men to have understated spending on cars, entertainment and sports tickets.Downplaying a purchase price is a marital misdemeanor, but hiding the pur-chase altogether kicks up the deception a few notches.Ž Sixteen percent of the mar-ried respondents admitted theyd bought something they didnt want their spouse to find out about. Husbands and wives were both guilty of this practice, but men turned out to be the big-ticket spend-ers: Twice as many men as women said theyd spent more than $1,000 without their spouses knowledge. Women were most likely to say that less than $100 was the most theyd ever spent without tell-ing their husbands. Interestingly though, wives who owned up to fudging on what they spent were most likely to do so on items for their children. Husbands, by contrast, were most likely to have lied about what they spent on themselves.Ž Why would so many of us risk the stability of our marriages? For many of us, shopping and spending provides a gratifying thrill. When we have pressure at work, a lot on our minds, or just love the item in question, we often feel entitled to treat ourselves. Shopping can be a pick me up when were feeling low. And, of course, scor-ing a bargain is a special triumph we can boast about to friends and associates. We should also consider the impact of current social and cultural factors. Ours is a society that promotes mate-rialism and acquisition. A lot of our spending is often on purchases designed to enhance our image or prestige. We often, misguidedly, consume with the belief that others will admire or respect who we are because of our appearance, or the lavishness of our lifestyle. We may seek to boost our selfesteems by spending, trying to fill emotional voids with our purchases. A lot of our beliefs and values about spending were shaped in our earliest years, as we observed our family of origins comfort about spending. Some families have a sense of entitlement, and a belief system that its acceptable to spend with little concern about saving for a rainy day. Other families frugally watch every cent thats spent and may deny themselves indulgences they can readily afford.According to the MONEY survey, 43 percent of the respondents said they deceived their spouse to avoid conflict. Many of us become resentful if we believe our spouse is controlling or expecting us to follow their instructions. We may be embarrassed or afraid to come clean with our purchases, fearing judgment or an argument. We may even angrily blame our spouse instead for being cheap and withholding. To further justify our behavior, we may say: If my partner cared enough about me he wouldnt give me such a hard time. He would WANT me to enjoy nice things.Ž Some of us who are resentful of our spouses criticism may even over-spend as a way of retaliat-ing or asserting independence. Some of us may shop so excessively we put our households precariously at risk, with delinquent accounts or astro-nomical credit card bills. We often see this behavior when people feel lonely, depressed or angry. The shopping may give a boost of excitement or power, but the lifted spirits are generally shortlived. Guilt, anguish and self-loathing will often follow. These may be signs of a compulsive spending disorder, a pattern of chronic, repetitive purchasing, which has features similar to other addictive disorders, such as alcohol or drug addictions. In these instances, professional help is advisable. As we all know, deception compromises our relationships. Its critically important to speak honestly with our partners about differing values and spending philosophies. Setting up a mutually agreed upon family budget or guidelines may head off some dis-agreements. Putting ourselves in our partners shoes, showing a sincere inter-est in understanding their feelings and point of view, should help maintain a mutually supportive stance. Some families find it helpful to have an understanding that each partner is free to spend a certain amount on discretionary purchases, no questions asked. Of course, in households where one partner earns significantly less, or has no source of income, this can become very loaded, unless there is sen-sitive consideration on all sides. If were not certain where our spending habits fall, its probably wise to ask the following question: If my spouse knew the full extent of my spending, would this cause a rift and undermine the trust that we have in each other?Ž If the answer is yes, or even maybe, it might be time to have a frank dis-cussion. We may never come to a full agreement on the best way to resolve the differences, but promoting a spirit of openness and collaboration might help to bridge the gap.

Think again. Think cardiac rehabilitation is only for men who have had a heart attack? Think again. Men and women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds can improve their overall health with cardiac rehabilitation if they have had a heart attack, coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty and stents, coronary artery disease, heart valve repair or replacement, heart or lung transplant, chest pain or heart failure. One way for heart patients to improve their recovery and move forward with their lives is by participating in a medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation program. The Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is proud to have an excellent program that allows for continuity of care. Our team at the Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Center of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center strives to sta-bilize, slow or even reverse the pro-gression of cardiovascular disease by addressing the patients physical, mental and social functioning through a pro-gram of exercise, nutrition, behavior modification and education. As soon as one week after hospital discharge, many patients begin an out-patient program that consists of three, one-hour sessions per week. The Rehab Center is supervised by a physician and registered nurses with strong cardiac clinical skills, and patients are moni-tored before, during and after exercise. A comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program involves a team of profes-sionals that may include cardiologists, nurse with strong cardiac backgrounds, educators and dietitians. It has four main components: Q A medical evaluation is conducted when the program starts to assess your physical abilities, medical limitations and other conditions. Your progress will be tracked throughout rehabilitation to customize the program to meet your individual needs and ensure your safety. Q Physical activities such as walking or biking help improve cardiovas-cular fitness, while resistance training with weights is used to stretch and condition muscles. Dont worry if you havent been active before. Exercises are introduced at a comfortable pace and you will be taught proper form and techniques. Q Lifestyle education involves following a healthy eating plan by learning how to plan meals that meet your calor-ic needs. Your cardiac rehabilitation team also works with you to control risk factors for heart disease, such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and smoking. Q Chair yoga classes are available to help you reduce stress by learning breathing techniques, proper stretching and relaxation techniques. Q Even after your cardiac rehabilitation program ends, you will need to continue to follow the diet and exercise routine you have established to main-tain the heart-healthy benefits. Making this long-term commitment will help you return to a normal sched-ule and rebuild your life. Please join us on March 12 for a free heart attack risk assessment and an open house at our Nationally Accredited Cardiac and Pul-monary Rehab Center. Call 625-5070 to reserve your spot today.

It was a unanimous decision by the Hall of Fame Committee,Ž said Mr. Linley. In 37 years of presenting the Hall of Fame Banquet and Annual Sports Awards, the Presidents Award has only been proffered on four occasions. The Palm Beach County Hall of Fame Committee is highly selective when determining a standout to receive the prestigious award, only bestowing it when an individual and entity is deserving in any given year. Working with George Linley and his team at the Sports Commission is a plea-sure,Ž said Mr. Wash in the statement. Its exciting to see field hockey and lacrosse being played at IPC during our off-season.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 BUSINESS A23 MONEY & INVESTINGTaxes becoming a matter of location, location, location Taxes have always been an important factor in preserving wealth and improving after-tax investment and income returns. But in 2012-2013, all sorts of taxes have become a much bigger part of the wealth equation, not just in the U.S., but also in France, Germany, Great Britain and Japan. The common denominator of these countries? A developed GDP saddled with a large, current budget deficit, future large deficits tied to entitlements for an aging population and existing large outstanding sovereign indebtedness. Increased taxa-tion in developed countries sellsŽ quite well to voters who benefit from (and/or who hold to the ideologies of) sovereign budgetary largesse. Increases in taxation are more pronounced in U.S. states and cities, which lack capacity to issue debt to finance their deficits; absent budget cuts, these municipalities increase tax on their domi-ciled citizenry and anyone doing business within their territory. With the global trend toward increased taxation becoming deeply entrenched, the wealthy and middle-income earners need to revisit their strategies for income, investment and estate tax minimization. This global pattern of increasing taxation provides a meaningful diversion from the underlying problems of low GDP growth and high unemployment, which remain uncured by runaway sovereign spend-ing. As best stated by Martin Armstrong, an international economist, Raising taxes LOWERS economic growth because government NEVER spends money effi-ciently. Only the private sector spends money to make money. Taking money away from investors ALWAYS reduces economic growthƒ To create booming economies, it requires the concentration of capital seeking economic gain that fur-thers the whole of society.Ž ( Armstrongs blog often posts updates on which countries are doing what?Ž In September, France announced a 75 percent tax band for those earning more than  1m a year. Eleven of the 27 EU countries have adopted a financial transactions tax (0.1 percent for shares and bonds and 0.01 per-cent for derivatives) There is movement in Great Britain to adopt a mansion taxŽ on £2m properties. In the U.S., Obamacare imposed an investment tax and, in January, estate and income taxation levels were changed. How are wealthy people reacting to tax increases? Some notables are voicing that changes will be made in their lives, often their domicile. Armstrong notes some of the biggest headlines on this topic: Frances richest man, Bernard Arnault, head of the LVMH luxury group, is relocat-ing to Belgium, thought to be the first step before applying for residency in tax haven Monaco. One of Facebooks four largest shareholders, Eduardo Saverin, renounced U.S. citizenship immediately before the Facebook IPO. A variety of sports stars are also taking steps to protect their assets. Boxer Manny Pacquiao wants to fight Juan Manuel Marquez in China or Singapore to avoid high U.S. taxes. Hall of Fame golfer Phil Mickelson says, ƒ there are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the stateƒ If you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and state, my tax rate is 62, 63 percent. ... So Ive got to make some decisions on what to do.Ž Source: NY Times, Jan. 20, 2013.) So, take notes from Phil: maybe you, too, need to make some drastic changes in your tax planning. Snowbirds might decide to finalize a change in state domi-cile, from a high taxation state to a no income taxation state (e.g., Florida.) How-ever, it might be that Obamacares shift of medical costs to states will force some no-income tax states into low levels of taxation.) Surely, New Jerseys exit tax is a tax strategy likely under consideration by other northern states in similar straits. Second, you will need to rethink investment/income/gains strategies and con-sider how some of this cash inflow can be restructured as a return of capital or taxed at a lower bracket.Third, you will need to reconsider your estate plan in light of changed U.S. estate taxation levels and even more so if you have had changes in family circumstances, changes in laws, and even changes in ones philosophy regarding wealth transfersƒ Some of these dynamic circumstances include: changes in wealth, later-life mar-riages and remarriages... Any life changes in this increasingly complex environment may increase the likelihood that your estate plan will need some sort of change or fix over the years.Ž Evidently, what is thought to be castin-stone /irrevocable trusts can still be changed. (Clarfeld, Spring 2012, Advanced Tax and Estate Planning Report, frequently visited theme of this money column has been portfolio protec-tion: focusing on asset allocation such that, come economic rain or shine, port-folios are protected. Some recommended alternative asset allocations are perceived to be higher risk than equity and bonds, but they have historically performed well in a time of crisis. But now there is a new crisis impacting portfolios: taxation. It will remain a big planning problem for a long time as city, state and federal governments have become increasingly aggressive in their taxation reach. It might be best to talk with your adviser and bring your tax expert into the dialogue. But beware! You will likely be creating new entities and trusts and changing docs and paying big bucks.

The traditional print advertising, local media channels, newspaper and magazines are still very prominent but there has been a shift in the marketplace to heavy Internet advertising and marketing. There are some buyers that claim they find their home on the Internet. In reality, a very small percentage of buyers actually purchase off the Inter-net. Rarely can a home be purchased over the Internet because one can only truly know what the property is like if you experience it. The Internet can be the driving force for a client to view a property, but 99 percent of the time, an offer will only be made after visiting the property in person. Recently I received a phone call on a Monday morning from a potential buyer living in Toronto. He travels here fre-quently on business and has been toying with the idea of purchasing a home in the area. He called regarding a specific property that I had advertised in one of the luxury Toronto newspapers. I was very excited since this was only the second time I had tried this channel of advertising. As we discussed the property, he explained that he would be arriving this weekend and would like to set up an appointment to view the property as well as some others that fit his criteria. I sent him some other properties for sale that day and we discussed the schedule of showings that night. The more I talked with him, the more it became apparent that he was still focused on the home that he originally called about. He went on to explain that even though the advertisement in the Toron-to paper was what caught his attention, it was all the other advertising he had seen prior to that particular ad. It began with his online search with the Wall Street Journal where I have all my listings advertised. This is a paid Internet site, so unlike or tru-lia which lists the entire multiple listing service, this site specifically reaches out to those looking for a luxury property. After seeing the property on WSJ, he then did the typical search on and found it again. He said every time he would put in his criteria on any internet site, my property would come up as one of the top three in his category. After being directed to the Fite Shavell website, he then printed out the material and more details on the prop-erty and saved it in a file he started. Still, after all this searching he did not make the phone call to me since he was not sure of his plans to purchase. He visited the area a few more times on business and during his stay, picked up a Florida Weekly at Starbucks. Again, saw the same house advertised. In his hotel was the Palm Beacher magazine which also had it advertised. He said he had to see this home because there were so many signs.Ž This is just an example of how the utilization of different areas of market-ing work to bring a client to a property. There is a lot of effort that is put into marketing a home for sale if you have the right agent. It all begins with effec-tively marketing the home to the right buyers and having your home listed with the proper agency. Real estate is not a science. There are facts, figures and comparables that get the process going, but after that there are many other factors that play a role in a successful sale. Today I wrote about an experience with marketing. There are hundreds of examples on how a buyer reaches your property and there are many other channels of advertising that I did not touch upon. When contracting an agent to list your property, be sure to research their background. They should be selling properties similar to yours. They should also have an outreach within the com-munity. That outreach should be with other brokers and agents as well as organizations. They should be able to explain and comprehend what is special about your property versus others and take that information to market your home to the right clientele.

Call Charlie at (561) 707-7078 B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSRanting and raving and calling it a night Im passing through South Carolina, a state where everybody seems full of old-fashioned charm. Ive noticed that the people here have a warmth and polite-ness to them, especially the Southern gentlemen. This, I think, is the place to meet a man. So I couldnt help but laugh this morning as I read the Rant & RaveŽ section of the local paper. This is a rant to being a single female in (South Carolina),Ž one woman wrote. It is probably one of the most frustrat-ing things for my friends and me. We are all well-educated, beautiful and success-ful ladies, yet we cant seem to find any male counterparts to date.Ž I shook my head. Could that be true in this state, where every man holds the door for you? Ive heard the same complaint about the lack of good men in New York, a city that at least has statis-tics in its defense. There truly are more single women than men in New York, and the city does run on an I-can-do-better mentality, which makes finding a man less difficult than keeping him. But now I have to wonder how many of those complaints were real and how many were the products of our own myth-making. Some time ago, fed up with the dismal roman-tic scene in New York, a good friend left the city for Oklahoma, pre-dicting that her chances for love would be better in the heartland. Not sur-prisingly, they werent. A year and a half after her move, shes still single. Now she rants about the dating scene in Oklahoma the way she once ranted about the dating scene in New York. For a long time I was convinced that women like her „ and the ranter from South Carolina „ werent meeting good men because of their own questionable personalities. Perhaps they needed to be better listen-ers or kinder partners. Maybe, I thought, they just werent good girlfriend mate-rial. But now Ive come to a different conclusion. When I was younger and frequently dateless, I could pass an entire day with my single girl friends complaining about the sad state of dating in Florida. We said there werent enough men our age, not enough men with our interests. We bemoaned our bad luck in living in such a romantic wasteland. The truth, of course, is that there were plenty of good men out there. Just like there are plenty of good men in New York. And South Carolina. Ive come to realize that bemoaning the dating scene is a way to jus-tify avoiding it all together. As long as we are complaining to our friends „ over brunch, over dinner, over a rented movie „ then we dont have to be out there trying to find a partner. In fact, Ive found that the people who complain the most about their romantic prospects are often the ones who are least likely to be out on the dating scene. I guess Ill just crawl back in bed with my copy of Fifty Shades of Grey,Ž the ranter from South Carolina con-cluded her piece. Which I imagine is exactly what she did. Q o r t m w t artis

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYAltered RealitiesŽ literally starts at the beginning, with a work Mr. Fernan-dez created in 1972 while studying at the University of Florida. I had it for a long time, and for this show, I brought it back out and it seems to fit. I realized I was doing this kind of fracturing from way back,Ž he said. In fracturing, he creates paintings and drawings by marking his surface off in a grid, then working within each square of that grid. Each individual area in a painting has a purpose. To me, each one should have a com-positional balance before I move to the next one,Ž he said. His logic is simple. If youre so democratic in the way you handle every square inch, its unusual „ it was unusual „ anyway to work this way, as a result a secondary image source evolved and so I superimposed these map-like lines,Ž he said, gesturing to a 1979 work. Its mirror image hangs next to it, the cutouts he used for the other work in reverse. The juxtaposition is fascinating, as one appears to be almost a negative image of the other. In another gallery, drawings that Mr. Fernandez used as patterns to create his large-scale bas-relief paintings hang across from one of the works. The absurd thing is that it doesnt even resemble this,Ž he said pointing at the drawing. It doesnt really matter because Im using it almost as a reactive. Sometimes I transfer it straight up, sometimes I ignore it and sometimes I invent something altogether.Ž The transition from a 1or 2-foot drawing to a 12-foot painting is huge. This part is necessary because it almost imprints a kind of idea, a vision of meaning, like a place. Later, when Im working completely divorced from an image, this somehow imprints it, that this is the same thing as that. Its just a larger scale,Ž he said. Never mind the tedium of making such a transition; there is a spontane-ity and movement to Mr. Fernandezs work. The light flits about the geometric shapes that he has layered on his paint-ing surfaces, and the shadows of the layers bring additional visual depth to the pieces. He has worked in New York, and many of those paintings reflect that northerly influence. But much of the work at the Lighthouse ArtCenter has a distinctly Flori-da feel. Devils Millhopper, a spring near Gainesville, comes to life in one work, while in a scene from east of his home in Bradenton, the Myakka River gently undulates beneath a thicket of palmet-tos, oaks and pines. That piece was lent for the exhibition by Floridas former first lady, Rhea Chiles. What I noticed was that when you stood back from it, it looked like a landscape but the closer you walked to it, you felt you were walking into it,Ž said Katie Deits, Lighthouse ArtCenter executive director. Then you realized that each area is totally abstract and that the way he paints is abstraction within realism.Ž She had first seen his work at The Studio at Gulf and Pine on Anna Maria Island, operated by Mrs. Chiles. You really feel like youre sitting in the natural environment,Ž Ms. Deits said. Mr. Fernandez, who is married to artist Linda Chapman, said he works on multiple projects. Sometimes I tell myself I have to be disciplined and do one thing from the beginning to the end. Theres very little consistency in what I do,Ž he said. That is apt. In this exhibition, the work varies in media. There are oil paintings, drawings and mixed-media works. I think his use of photography is very interesting,Ž Ms. Deits said. How he takes photographs of things, then takes small bits of them and uses them to create a work.Ž Photographs are two-dimensional, and Ms. Deits said she generally can tell even when a painting has been based on a photograph. Thats not the case with Mr. Fernandezs work. You still feel like youre there, and his photographs have an incredible three-dimensional feeling,Ž she said. Sometimes, he works from the center of a work; other times he works from left to right. His work varies from abstract to realistic, fractures to different renditions of reality. Those drawings, for example, are almost like a rehearsal for the image. They offer a peek into the process.And a glimpse into the mind of the artist.

He set himself a very difficult task when he bid six clubs with virtually no encouragement from North. West led the king of hearts followed by the queen, East playing high-low to show a doubleton. This verified the evidence from the bidding that West began with seven hearts. Eisenberg ruffed the second heart and drew trumps, noting that West started with three clubs. Since West could hold no more than three cards in spades and diamonds, it was very likely that East had four or five spades, which in turn made him a favorite to hold both the king and ten. Eisenberg therefore decided to finesse against East for both of those cards, but it was not quite as easy as that. The problem was insufficient entries to dummy. If, for example, declarer cashed the A-Q-K-J of diamonds, discarding a spade on the last diamond, only one spade finesse could be taken. Alternatively, if he overtook the queen of diamonds with the king in order to take two spade finess-es, dummys last diamond would not be good, saddling South with a spade loser at the end. Eisenberg found a neat solution to this dilemma. After drawing trumps, he led the queen of diamonds to the king. The jack of spades was covered by the king and ace, whereupon declarer cashed his last trump. The trick that Eisenberg had given away by overtaking the queen of diamonds now returned. On the trump lead, East had to discard from the [S] 10 5 4 and [D] 10 8 5. A diamond discard would set up dummys last diamond, after which just one more spade finesse would suffice. And if East discarded a spade instead, Eisenbergs fourth spade would be good after the spade finesse was repeated. Either way, the slam was home. Q

The Celtic TenorsMonday, March 18 The Celtic Tenors have established themselves as the most successful clas-sical crossover artists ever to emerge from Ireland. In 2000, following an impromptu audition at EMI in London, the Celtic Tenors were signed on the spot to an international record deal. Their latest album, Feels Like Home, celebrates the uplifting music of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales, while bor-rowing a few songs from other cultures along the way. While each of The Celtic Tenors has been influenced by the musical tradi-tions from his own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. Equally at home performing to large festival crowds or intimate concert halls and theatres, and whether backed by a live band, symphony orchestra, solo piano, or even a capella, their voices and personalities always shine through alongside their Celtic charm. Showtimes are 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. All tickets are $40.

Don McWhorter of Carrollton, Ga., won Best of Show for his work in ceramics at the festival, which ran Feb. 16-18 at Abacoa in Jupiter. And judges also announced winners in the Youth Art Competition. "I am very flattered to be named Best in Show at ArtiGras," Mr. McWhorter said in a statement.

Mr. McWhorter has shown his ceramic work at 18 of the last 20 ArtiGras, which show-cased the work of about 280 artists this year. The winners were selected by three judges who scored each artist and awarded a Best in Show and a first-place winner in each of the 14 categories. Artists who placed first in each category were: Don McWhorter, Ceramics, Best in Show; Robin Rodgers of Tallahassee, Ceramics; Edward Loedding of Brandon, Vt., Digital Art; Flo Kemp of Setauket, N.Y., Drawing and Printmaking; Shelly Cox of Jupiter, Emerging Artists; Jean Yao of Fort Lauderdale, Fiber „ Nonwearable; Leah Dziewit of Maple City, Mich., Fiber „ Wearable; Richard Ryan of Bour-bonnais, Ill., Glass; Michael Alexander of New York, N.Y., Jewelry; Vince Pompei of St. Petersburg, Metal; B.

CAPSULESA Good Day To Die Hard ++ (Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch) NYPD cop John McClane (Mr. Willis) travels to Russia and helps his son (Mr. Courtney) protect a political prisoner (Mr. Koch). There are a few stel-lar action sequences, but the story is very thin, Mr. Willis doesnt have many wise guy remarks and the action grows tired quickly. It just doesnt feel like a Die HardŽ movie (this is the fifth one, if youre counting). Rated R.Beautiful Creatures +++ (Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons) Teen love between Ethan (Mr. Ehrenreich) and Lena (Ms. Englert) gets com-plicated when its learned that shes a witch with a life-defining birthday coming soon. The love story is hard to buy, but its a compelling narrative and it delivers a positive message for teen girls. Rated PG-13.Identity Thief + (Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Patrick) An accountant (Mr. Bateman) tracks down the woman (Ms. McCarthy) who stole his identity in this absolutely ter-rible comedy. Its not funny, and even worse, its insulting to the intelligence. A definite dis-appointment from Seth Gordon, who made Horrible Bosses.Ž Rated R. Q Side Effects ++ (Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum) When her hus-band (Mr. Tatum) returns after four years in prison, a depressed woman (Ms. Mara) attempts suicide and suffers the effects of prescription medication. Its a good drama with decent performances, but the final half hour is so twisty itll make your head spin. Rated R.Warm Bodies +++ (Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich) A zom-bie (Mr. Hoult) falls for a pretty girl (Ms. Palmer) and finds himself becoming human again as they spend time together. A zombie romantic comedy is certainly an original idea, and theres enough sweetness and dark humor for it to work. Rated PG-13.Bullet To The Head ++ (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Christian Slater) A hitman (Mr. Stallone) teams up with a detective (Sung Kang) to find the killers of the hitmans partner (Jon Seda). Its Mr. Stallones typical mindless stuff, which could be a good thing if thats what youre in the mood for. Objectively, though, this is an average action pic at best. Rated R.Mama ++ (Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier) Strange things hap-pen when two girls who were lost in the woods for five years are found and move in with their uncle (Mr. Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Ms. Chastain). Its an intriguing prem-ise and there are a few good scares, but lackluster execution leaves it less than entertaining. Rated PG-13.Gangster Squad + (Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Bro-lin) A team of rogue cops hunts down the operation of gangster Mickey Cohen (Mr. Penn) in 1949 Los Angeles. The occa-sionally campy tone doesnt mesh with the otherwise serious drama, and the story is a predictable, clich-ridden mess. Rated R. Q PUZZLE ANSWERS

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYOscar event benefits Palm Beach film festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Red Carpet rolls out at Muvico Parisian 20 at CityPlace on Oscar Sunday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in celebration of the biggest and most exciting nights in Hol-lywood … the 85th Academy Awards. As one of only 46 officially sanctioned Oscar viewing parties by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences known as the Oscar Experience, this event promises to deliver all the trills and surprises of this much anticipated evening. Tickets are $35 per person general admission and include appetizers and one beverage and $65 per person VIP for two beverages, one 85th Oscar program or poster and VIP seating. Proceeds will benefit the Palm Beach International Film Festival. All guests will enjoy a silent auction, live music and the opportunity to cast their own awards ballots for a chance to win the Red Carpet ExperienceŽ at the upcoming Palm Beach International Film Festival in April. Dress is Hollywood chic. I cant think of a better way to experience the Oscars than at this exclusive event,Ž said Randi Emerman, executive director of the Palm Beach International Film Festival. You will feel like you are actually at the Oscars with a tremendous screen, opulent venue, plush seating and the company of an audience that truly loves the movies.Ž The Oscar Experience Palm Beach benefits the Palm Beach International Film Festival, a non-profit organization committed to supporting emerging film-makers of today and tomorrow. The Festival strives to recognize new and original voices throughout the world and channel the excitement of film into Palm Beach County local schools. The 18th Annual Palm Beach International Film Festival will take place April 4-11. To purchase tickets, see pbfilmfestival. org or call 362-0003. Q Lets be blunt: The Oscars are boring when theyre predictable and a lot of fun when theyre not. Most years its a mixed bag of categories that are easy to pick and some that not even Carnac could see coming. This year is no dif-ferent: Of the six major categories dis-cussed here „ picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor and support-ing actress „ three are virtual locks, two are a bit shaky and one is anyones guess. If nothing else, at least we have Family GuysŽ Seth MacFarlane as the host to keep us entertained on Oscar night Sunday, Feb. 24.Best PictureIll start with an easy one, a category that the Academy will make you wait three hours to hear but that we know is inevitable: ArgoŽ will win for Best Picture. Its won all the major awards leading in, the story makes Hollywood a hero (which voters will love), and I think I still have a lump in my throat from the last half hour. Its truly great filmmaking. Except for Beasts of the Southern Wild,Ž Silver Linings PlaybookŽ and LincolnŽ (the latter two of which I respected but didnt necessarily like), the other nominees for Best Picture were superb as well: AmourŽ made me cry, which never happens at mov-ies; Django UnchainedŽ was terrific film art with a strong message; Les MiserablesŽ had a sweeping emotional resonance that is difficult to achieve; Life Of PiŽ is the most beautiful movie Ive ever seen; and Zero Dark ThirtyŽ is a strong drama with a stirring finale. Will win: Argo.Ž Should win: Argo.ŽBest ActorSpeaking of former Oscar winners, with a win for Lincoln,Ž Daniel Day-Lewis will join Katharine Hepburn as the only actors to win three Oscars for lead actor. Even those who didnt love LincolnŽ as a movie (like me) certainly appreciated Mr. Day-Lewis incredible, lived-in performance as the 16th presi-dent of the United States. All of the nominees in this category were fabulous as well: including Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables,Ž Denzel Washington in Flight,Ž Joaquin Phoe-nix in The MasterŽ and Bradley Coo-per in Silver Linings Playbook.Ž Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis. Should win: Daniel Day-Lewis.Best Supporting ActressFor as much as Mr. Day-Lewis is a lock for lead actor, Anne Hathaway is even more of a lock for Best Support-ing Actress. Her performance in Les MiserablesŽ was heartbreaking, and her stunning rendition of I Dreamed A DreamŽ gave goose bumps to even the most hardened cynics. Other nominees are two-time Oscar winner Sally Field for Lincoln,Ž Helen Hunt for The Sessions,Ž Amy Adams for The MasterŽ and Jacki Weaver for Silver Linings Playbook.Ž Will win: Anne Hathaway. Should win: Anne Hathaway.Best ActressThe lead actress category is a bit up for grabs. Most speculate its between favorite Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings PlaybookŽ and Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty,Ž but dont count out Emmanuelle Riva from Amour,Ž a film that tugged at the heartstrings more than any other this year. Also nominated are Quvenzhane Wallis from Beasts of the Southern WildŽ and Naomi Watts, who was phe-nomenal as a mother wanting to reunite her family after a devastating tsunami in The Impossible.Ž Will win: Jennifer Lawrence. Should win: Naomi Watts.Best Supporting ActorLincolnsŽ Tommy Lee Jones is the favorite in this category, but any of the five nominees for Best Supporting Actor (each of whom has won in the past) could emerge victorious. Chris-toph Waltz proves he was born to speak Quentin Tarantinos words in his great performance in Django Unchained,Ž Robert De Niro actually acted again (for a change) in Silver Linings Play-book,Ž Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the highlights of The MasterŽ and Alan Arkin provided perfect comic relief in Argo.Ž That said, Mr. Jones bombastic grandstanding should be enough to get him his second statue. Will win: Tommy Lee Jones. Should win: Christoph Waltz.Best DirectorBest Director is anyones guess this year. Ordinarily the winner of the Directors Guild of America award is the frontrunner, but Ben Affleck (ArgoŽ) inexplicably isnt nominated here. Pundits are guessing it will be either LincolnsŽ Steven Spielberg for his third Oscar or Life Of PisŽ Ang Lee for his second. But I say dont count out Michael Haneke for Amour,Ž which is a notable highlight of his considerable directing career. Also nominated are Benh Zeitlin for Beasts of the Southern WildŽ and David O. Russell for Silver Linings Playbook.Ž Will win: Micahel Haneke. Should win: Ben Affleck (I dont care that hes not nominated, this award should be his). Yes, the Oscars are a time to cheer for your favorites and passion runs deep, but always remember: Life goes on, win or lose, and the bottom line is its Hollywoods night to celebrate Hol-lywood. Q OSCAR PREDICTIONS 2013As usual, it’s a mixed bag: Some locks, at least one a toss-up r t w m i f M dan

Most states have laws that prohibit the unapproved use of a persons name or likeness for commercial benefit.Ž This was not a concern when George Wash-ington (1732-1799) was president ( 17891797). He was admired by the public, but there were no photographs of him and few portraits. Product packaging back then was usually a plain black and white folded paper packet. In the 19th century, celebrations of Washingtons Feb. 22 birthday and the July 4 birthday of the United States made Washington a symbol of the country. A surprising number of things collected today fea-ture Washingtons portrait. At least three tobacco companies used WashingtonŽ as a brand name one for pipe tobacco, one for plug tobacco and one for chew-ing tobacco. Each had a picture of Wash-ington on the package, often beside a flag and other patriotic symbols. Collec-tors of Washington memorabilia can also find a brand of coffee, a soup companys ads, dishes, calendars and many other products that feature Washingtons image. No doubt he would be upset to know he once advertised Acapulco Gold cigarette papers. Other Washington col-lectibles found today include old post-ers and signs advertising products like insurance, 1876 U.S. Centennial furniture with wooden inlay picturing Washing-ton, and paper needle cases from 1930s dime stores. Even today Washington is a spokes-man for products. In the past year, he has promoted cars, beer, an appliance store and a state lottery. A col-orful tobacco tin for Washington Mixture tobacco, picturing Washington and a flag, auctioned for $303 at a 2012 William Mor-ford auction in upstate New York. Almost all George Washing-ton-related collectibles and antiques are selling well. Q: My mother said she and my father had the first radio in our area, and peo-ple came from all over to listen to it. She thought it was about 1919 or 1920. My dad built the radio, then bought a cabinet to put it in. The cabinet has a label that says American Beauty Radio Cabinets & Console Speakers, Mfg. by Pierson Co., Rockford, Ill.Ž The radio was disposed of long ago, but we still have the cabinet. It has all its original knobs and is in good condition. Id like to know when it was built and what its worth. A: The first commercial radio broadcast was made when KDKA of Pittsburgh broadcast the results of the presidential race between Warren Harding and James Cox on Nov. 2, 1920. Radio receivers were not widely avail-able at the time. In the 1920s, many peo-ple made their own radios by assembling the necessary compo-nents and attaching them to a board. By the late 1920s, radios were being manufac-tured for sale, and furniture companies began making cabi-nets to put them in. Pierson Furniture Co. was founded in 1927. It became Pierson Radio Co. in 1930 and began making radio cabinets. In 1940 the company switched from manufacturing to retail, and its name was changed to Pierson Factory Showrooms. Your empty cabinet would sell as used furniture and might bring a few hundred dollars. Q: Have you ever heard of green glass goblets filled with peanu t butt er and sold by Armour Meat Packing Co.? My brother-in-law worked for Armour in the late 1930s and early 1940s. He would bring home various purchased meats and also peanut b utter pack ed in these goblets. I have three of them and would like to donate them to Armour for its museum, if it has one. A: Armour was founded in 1867. Although the companys main business was meat packing, it also made bacon, ham and other meat products, as well as canned food, jam, jelly, lard, salad oil, soup, peanut butter and other products. The company used byproducts of the slaughterhouse to make brushes, glue, strings for musical instruments and ten-nis rackets, sutures and pharmaceuti-cals. Armours refrigerated meats, non-refrigerated products and pharmaceuti-cals are owned by different companies today. Several companies packed peanut butter in goblets or glasses in the 1940s and 50s. By the 1950s, they were also using decorated glass as packaging. The pressed glass goblets sell for about $5 to $10 each today. Tip: Do not store jewelry in silk or wool bags. The fabric may contain sulfur or plastic that can discolor silver and copper. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

And some of the c ountrys top contemporary jazz musi-cians will gather Feb. 23 at Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches to play it. Such musicians as NBCs Saturday Night LiveŽ band member and Juilliard edu-cator Ron Blake, Grammy Award-winning percussionist Dion Parson, Dave Matthews Band trumpeter Rashawn Ross, noted bassist Reuben R. Rogers, Juilliard instruc-tor and accomplished pia-nist, composer and arranger Xavier Davis and guitar great Bobby Broom will play during this culmination of Oxbridges interdisciplinary study of African-American culture and the role Florida played in the narrative. The state was where a range of black trailblazers from the Highwaymen artists to literary icon Zora Neale Hurston began. In fact, Miss Hurston inspired the schools lesson, called The Zora Project: A Celebration of Local Black Heritage, in which students created video essays on local people, places and events that shaped black art and culture. An exhibition of many of the student presentations will be displayed during the concert. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:45 p.m. at Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches auditorium, 3151 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Seating is limited. Reservations are required.

The production will play the following additional performances: Thursday, March 7 at 8 p.m., Friday, March 8 at 8 p.m., Saturday, March 9 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, March 10 at 2 p.m. Set in the 1950s on the South Side of Chicago, A Raisin In The SunŽ is the story of the Younger family, and their receipt of a substantial insurance pay-ment that leads to life-changing deci-sions. The play is inspired, in part, by the experience of Hansberrys family when her parents purchased a house in a white neighborhood.Ž As the Youngers argue over how best to use the money, the drama addresses issues that were rarely discussed at that time, includ-ing womens rights and black identity. The plays title comes from the poem Harlem,Ž also known as A Dream Deferred,Ž by Langston Hughes. Directed by Seret Scott, the production features Joniece Abbott-Pratt, Shirine Babb, Pat Bowie, Marckenson Charles, Ethan Henry, Dave Hyland, Mcley LaFrance, Jordan Tisdale, Mekiel Benjamin, Joshua Valbrun, Lanardo Davis and Jeffrey Brazzle. Set design is by Paul DePoo, costume design by Brian O'Keefe, lighting design by Joseph P. Oshry, and sound design by Rich Szc-zublewski.

Its that spicy.But the Goan chilis that make the intensely warm sauce for these tender bits of chicken and potato also lend an intensely rich flavor to the dish, which is served with basmati rice. The potato, which reportedly is a western addition to the dish, helps carry that flavor, which is all the better for sopping with bits of naan. Taste of India it is a bit of a drive, but it has been a fun culinary discovery. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Ribs, pork, chicken, beef brisket, old country western movies, and a family environ-ment is what Scott Howie and Elisa Caplan create at Mrs. Smokeys Real Pit Bar-B-Q. Scott Howie, chef and co-owner of Mrs. Smokeys Bar-B-Q, graduated from Florida Culinary where he gained experience in what he loves most „ cooking. My grandmother inspired me to be a chef,Ž he says. She was a farm-er and she always had a garden, so we ate what we grew.Ž Being raised on a farm to table concept in Millis, Mass., is what makes Mrs. Smokeys successful with home-made, fresh quality food. Although Chef Scott has worked at multiple restaurants, including Nick and Johnnies and City Cellar, he has also worked with barbecue fare for nine years in Nashville. Barbecue is what I love to eat,Ž he says. There isnt a better match for me, then being able to work with Mrs. Smokey every day,Ž he says, referring to his wife, who founded the restaurant in New York in 1979. Mrs. Smokeys Bar-B-Q had three locations in Manhattan, one at Sawgrass in Sun-rise and one near Home Depot on Northlake Boulevard. It was at the Northlake Boule-vard location where Chef Scott met Mrs. Smokey, aka Ms. Caplan, and says that he not only fell in love with her smile, but with her food too. Our menu has pretty much stayed the same since Manhattan, but Scott has defi-nitely added some flair to the recipes,Ž says Ms. Caplan. At the 15-month-old location in Lake Park, the couple and Elisas children take pride in learning customers names and their orders. Mrs. Smokeys emphasizes a family-oriented atmosphere with quality comfort food. With items like sticky bones on the menu, we are taking barbecue to a whole new level.Ž Name: Scott Howie Age: 42 Original Hometown: Millis, Mass.

Memorialized in the 2008 movie Bottle Shock,Ž upstart California wines competed against the best France had to offer „ and beat them. Recently I caught up with Violet Grgich, proprietor of Grgich Hills Estate and daughter of winemaker Miljenko MikeŽ Grgich, who crafted Chateau Montelenas wine that took Paris by storm. Their winery, Grgich Hills, will release a 2010 vintage Paris Tasting Chardonnay on his 90th birthday, April 1. (The winery is hold-ing a cake-decorating contest. Prize is a trip to Napa. See I tasted this wine at The RitzCarlton Golf Resort in Naples, and was amazed at how it changed and evolved as the wine opened up. Extremely well balanced, it started with a nice floral nose, following into the palate with apple and white peach, and a lovely toasty vanilla-oak flavor, ending in a long drawn out fin-ish with a touch of mineral. Heres a sampling of our conversation. How is the new Grgich wine similar to the 1973 award winner? How do they differ? The 1973 vintage was truly remarkable „ something happened that year where it all came together seamlessly. The weather cooperated, the wine aged well in cask, and obviously was superb when it was tasted in Paris. Our new wine has many of the same qualities. It has lots of balance, lots of fruit, and good acidity; the grapes are very different from the grapes back then, because the source is completely different. Because of its subtlety and elegance it changes and opens up to go with many dif-ferent foods. The idea for this wine was not only to commemorate the Paris tasting, but to take the best barrels and create a wine of incompa-rable balance that makes you want to drink some more. This 2010 vintage is elegant and food friendly, European in style. It is seductive in a way, not overly big and impressive but it lures you in, like great literature or fine art. It captivates you. It is well balanced, and balance is the most important part of the wine. Dad says when great wine goes down the throat it says More!Ž How can people acquire this wine? We made only 631 cases, scheduled to release on my fathers 90th birth-day on April 1, and it is only available from the winery. We dont know how much will be available for sale after the birthday party; I hope we dont drink all of it then, because we want people to be able to try it. What does this wine mean to you personally? What I like about this new wine is that it has my dad on the label. This wine contains all of my dads experi-ence and wisdom. It is not just his wine, but a culmination of all he has done. My dad will be 90 when we release this wine on his birthday. He has par-ticipated in 88 vintages! When he was a baby back in Croatia they were poor and could not take time away from the harvest to watch the children, so they put them to work, in the crush vats, stomping around. If they were hungry or thirsty there were grapes and grape juice available underfoot. We have carried on this tradition at Grgich Hills and have a grape stomping party every year dur-ing harvest. Can you describe the wine?This wine will age for at least a decade and will continue to evolve and change. Right now, it takes quite a while to open up. The vineyard block of vines are in Carneros, and are our oldest and best chardonnay vines. We farm naturally, and are certified organic and Biometric. The yeasts are wild yeasts, and we do as little as possible to the grapes and the wine, letting the vines express them-selves fully. I get this beautiful aroma „ floral and mineral with richness and depth „ and it is just a baby right now. It is made with a little more oak so it needs more time to open up. To me, oak is like salt: You need a little to enhance the flavors and aromas. The wine has flavors of apple, pear and crme brulee, and this wine would be great with seafood risotto. Once it opens up more you will see the aroma has changed and there is a little gardenia and quince fragrance from the glass.

C2 healthy living FEBRUARY 2013 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe University of FloridaResearchers at the University of Florida have performed deep brain stimu-lation on a patient with Alzheimers disease as part of a clinical trial study-ing whether the treatment can slow progression of the disease. Called the Advance Study, the multicenter clinical trial will evaluate wheth-er using electrodes to stimulate a part of the brain called the fornix can slow memory decline and improve cognitive function in patients in the early stages of Alzheimers disease. The trial is taking place at four sites across the United States, including UF. The goal of treating Alzheimers disease with neuromodulation is to try to enhance what patients have and slow down memory loss and the process of the disease so they can have a few more years of good function,Ž says Dr. Michael Okun, co-director of the UF Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestora-tion and a site principal investigator for the study. This is a potentially exciting symptomatic therapy.Ž Characterized by memory loss and a steady decline in cognitive abilities, Alzheimers disease affects as many as 5.1 million Americans, according to the National Institute on Aging. Deep brain stimulation is used to treat a variety of conditions, including Parkin-sons disease, dystonia and Tourette syn-drome. In the procedure, researchers care-fully place electrodes in specific regions of the brain. When these electrodes are turned on, they send electrical signals that prompt a therapeutic response. In Alzheimers patients there is a very slow loss of brain function,Ž Dr. Okun says. These slow changes that happen in the brain lead to the clinical symptoms. The idea is that we are going to try and modulate the circuits to see if we can improve some of the symptoms.Ž Researchers decided to test deep brain stimulation in the fornix „ a part of the brain that connects the hippo-campus to the hypothalamus „ after the accidental discovery that stimulating that region of the brain provoked vivid memories in patients, Dr. Okun says. In addition to UF, the therapy is being tested at Toronto Western Hospital, Banner Alzheimers Institute in Phoenix and Johns Hopkins University. Overall, 20 patients will be enrolled in the trial, although the electrodes will not be turned on in all the participants, Dr. Okun says. This is the best way for us to tell if there is a real response versus a pla-cebo response,Ž he adds. Its very tricky to measure memory and cognition.Ž Aside from testing the effectiveness of the therapy, researchers also are close-ly examining how stimulating the brain affects the course of Alzheimers disease and whether it prompts changes in oxy-gen, in glucose levels and in blood flow. What we have seen so far is there are very interesting changes in blood flow,Ž he says. Its very early, and it is hard to judge these things just on pictures, but the pictures look very interesting. There is definitely something going on in the circuit.Ž Q Can deep brain stimulation slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease?

Garlic has been used for centuries for various health purposes and is a known free-radical destroyer. Nuts help to lose weight, maintain healthy blood pressure and support moods. Almond crumbs are a great substitute for breadcrumbs on chicken. Pair these goodies with whole-wheat couscous for a full dinner. Q Tempeh: With its high protein, meaty texture and fiber and isoflavones content tempeh is heavily utilized by vegetarians. Its made from soybeans processed in a manner similar to cheese making. Like tofu, tempeh takes on the flavors with which it is cooked or mari-nated, including zesty-tangy balsamic vinegar „ perfect for accentuating sal-ads. Q Mashed cauliflower gone Greek: Not only does Greek yogurt have a thicker texture and richer taste, its also denser in lactobacilli, the healthy bacteria that may delay the onset of cancer. And yogurt is low in fat and high in protein, which is essential for many body functions, including building and repairing muscle tissue, organs, bones and connective tissue. Rather than add fatty, cholesterol-filled b utter and sour cream to starchy potatoes that stick to your ribs, try mashed cauliflower and Greek yogurt with fresh black pepper. Q Sushi: A sushi roll is much more filling and satisfying than one might think. Many grocery chains offer ready-made rolls, but they are also fairly easy to make. A bamboo roller is a great start; place a sheet of nutrient-dense kelp as the first thing on the roller, and add, lengthwise, desired ingredients. Your first try is not likely to be perfect, but the tasty and healthy ingredients will be there. Q Fruit salad for dessert: Bring together chopped apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon and pineapple with blueberries and grapes for a sweet and juicy post-dinner palate-cleanser. Lemon juice prevents fruits from bruis-ing. If thats not enough, combine the salad with Greek yogurt „ perhaps blended with vanilla or almond extract „ and fiber-filled granola for a parfait.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the term heart disease,Ž commonly called coro-nary artery disease refers to several types of heart conditions. Many seniors live with heart disease, making it the leading cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in the United States and can prevent older adults from enjoy-ing their later years in life. The good news is that heart disease is preventable, and exercise and a healthy diet can help fight heart disease at any age. Its never too late to eat healthy, exercise and manage stress,Ž says Patri-cia Irby, senior care counselor at St. Josephs. We put a focus on wellness and health for all of our residents, whether they live with heart disease or not, and its done in a fun and support-ive environment.Ž The community offers daily exercise programs, including chair exercise, mem-bership to the fitness center at Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) Fitness and Health and Wellness Center, on-site exercise equipment as well as a partnership with JMCs Outpatient Rehabilitation to offer physical, occupational and speech therapy. Our residents really take advantage of all of the fitness offerings and utilize our classes and activities,Ž says Ms. Irby. For heart disease prevention to be truly successful, exercise needs to go hand in hand with healthy eating. John-nie Radcliff, St. Josephs director of din-ing, works every day to provide heart healthy food choices for residents to eat. We make and serve heart health delicious meals,Ž says Mr. Radcliff. We thoroughly research recipes for amounts of salt, fat and calories to ensure low cholesterol levels for meals.Ž The dining room offers breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of menu choices each day. One of the favorite meals that Chef Johnnie prepares is slow roasted pot roast with mash potatoes and steamed vegetables and another hit is his corn bread casserole. Often on the menu are fresh fish, such as cod, grouper, red snap-per and flounder, or Chicken breast, beef tenderloins, fresh fruits, sweet potatoes, vegetable base soups, and oatmeal, egg whites, vegetables and sugar free desserts. Mr. Radcliff says that providing heart healthy meals is an integral part of the dining experience for residents living at the community. Our dining is not only about tasty and nourishing meals but it is also a time for our residents to share stories and to socialize,Ž he says. Resident Flo Stangle knows firsthand the importance of staying healthy while living at St. Josephs. The 71-year-old resident attributes her continued good health and happiness to the many activi-ties offered at her community. She takes advantage of chair aerobics and recently started playing the piano again after more than 40 years, a great activity to combat her progressive multiple sclerosis. When I first started, I couldnt move my right and left hand together,Ž she says. My physical therapist said play-ing the piano was great for my illness and now it gives me a reason to wake up every morning.Ž Ms. Stangle says what she loves about living at St. Josephs is the personal atten-tion each resident receives in personalizing activities for their ability and enjoyment. Shes come a long way from not being able to move both hands together. Her favorite song to play is Clare De Lune,Ž but as she says, she likes to jazz it up.Ž Lifes too short not to do what you enjoy.Ž Q „ For more information about St. Josephs Assisted Living and Memory Care, call 561-747-1135 or visit keep St. Joseph’s residents happy and activeCOURTESY PHOTO Get Florida Weekly for iPadTM on the App store and read your favorite newspaper just like the hard copy.

Technological change, although making tasks easier, also makes us work faster and faster. Our productivity as a nation is the highest it has ever been but so is our level of stress. People are working harder. When these levels become unmanageable it can affect our health. It is well documented that short term stressful events can lead to a surge in stress hormonesŽ such as cortisol. This in turn leads to increasing blood pressure, faster heart rate and narrow-ing of the blood vessels. The result is often damaged arteries and heart dis-ease. What can we do to prevent this? Research has shown that acupuncture can actually eliminate surges in this type of harmful activity during mental stress. This was found to be true on people with heart disease. In essence, acupuncture was found to reduce stress in advanced heart failure patients. This has been sci-entifically documented by measuring various bodily responses such as muscle and nerve activity. It is also quite observable clinically. Simply stated, people feel better after acupuncture treatment. They express a feeling of overall wellbeing. Sleep improves. The relaxation response returns. In my practice I use acupuncture for wellness. If this can help prevent the pro-gression of heart disease and surgery, why not use it as a regular protocol? There is currently a lot of controversy about the many needless medical procedures being performed today. Many experts feel that heart stents are performed too often. Many times people are asymp-tomatic and still are convinced that they need to undergo this surgical pro-cedure. All too often it may prove to be unnecessary. Consider acupuncture and preventive techniques if you are experiencing car-diovascular disease.

Having access to a cutting edge cardiac catheterization lab with effective diagnos-tic capabilities, along with advanced, non-invasive cardiac diagnostic proce-dures and rehabilitative services, allows our community members to live long, healthy lives. Patients have access to a variety of cardiology services at Jupiter Medical Center, including a state-of-the-art Car-diac Cath Lab that offers advanced diagnostic imaging equipment and software, allowing for better quality and outc omes. The lab provides a new level of precision, speed and conve-nience „ including digital technology for evaluating patients for cardiovascu-lar diseases. Jupiter Medical Center also provides non-invasive cardiac diagnostic proce-dures and rehabilitative services. Our Cardiology Services department offers Stress Tests, Tilt Table Tests, Cardio-version, Holter Monitors, Echocardio-grams, Trans Esophageal Echocardio-gram (TEE), and Electroencephalo-grams (EEG). Stress Tests are used to gather information about how well your heart works during physical activity. There are many different types of stress tests, including Regular Stress Echo, Dobuta-mine Stress Echo, Cardiolite Stress and Adenosine Stress. Tilt Table Tests are designed to determine if the cause of fainting or near-fainting spells is due to Neurocardio-genic Syncope. Electrical Cardioversion involves delivery of a direct-current electrical shock to the heart that is set to be synchronized or coordinated with the natural electrical activity of the ventri-cle, or the bottom chamber of the heart. Holter Monitoring is a continuous recording of your EKG, usually for a 24-hour period. It is useful in diagnos-ing abnormal heart rhythms. Echocar-diography provides images of the struc-ture of the heart, including heart size, valve structure and pumping strength. Trans Esophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) is often used when the results from standard echo studies were not sufficient or when your doctor wants a closer look at your heart. It can also help determine the presence of heart disease and abnormalities of the left atrium. Electroencephalograms (EEG) is a test that can help diagnose epilepsy and aid in the diagnosis of a stroke (CVA), tran-sient ischemic attack (TIA), syncope, headaches, meningitis or encephalitis. For patients who have experienced heart disease, Jupiter Medical Centers Cardiac Rehab program can provide a compressive approach to rehab, utilizing a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including physicians, registered nurses, respiratory therapists and exercise physi-ologists. The Cardiac Rehab program at Jupiter Medical Center is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2013 C7 I ts well-known that one-third of American adults are overweight and an additional one-third are obese. In addition, 17 percent of U.S. children and adoles-cents are obese. Worldwide statistics are similar. These facts are strongly associated with ongoing epidemics in diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Diabetes may cause loss of vision, kidney prob-lems, and loss of circulation in the legs and feet. Cardio-vascular disease includes high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attacks. Being overweight or obese may cause diseases which require lifelong treatment. Personal action is needed to begin to restore good health, but its important to understand the specific nature of the actions to take. What is not required is a drastic reduction of body weight to some ideal-ized norm of thinness.Ž It is not appro-priate for people to attempt to force themselves to look like runway models. What does work is applying simple techniques and strategies to encourage a gradual loss of weight. Over time per-sons on such a plan will achieve a body weight that is normal for them. There are two key steps to reaching your nor-mal weight. The first step is to reduce your overall intake of calories by eating six small meals a day. If five small meals works best for your schedule and daily needs, thats fine. The main point involves total calories. With six small meals, each one is about 300 calories „ a little less for women and a little more for men who are taller and more heavily muscled. For men the daily calorie intake is between 1,800 and 2,100 calories. For women, the daily calorie intake is between 1,700 and 1,800 calories. By experimenting a bit, youll find your optimal calorie level that results in consistent weight loss. Make sure to combine complex carbohydrates and protein at each small meal. The numerous benefits of food combining include maintaining insulin levels in a normal range and improved cognitive/mental function. For many people, this reduction in daily calories will have an immediate and dramatic impact. There may be real hunger pangs, and it will be important to remember that the next small meal is only a couple of hours away. The pounds you lose in the first couple of weeks will likely provide plenty of reinforce-ment to help you through the times when you are really hungry. The next and simultaneous step is to begin a program of regular, vigorous exercise. Of course, if you havent exer-cised in a long time youll need to start sl owly. Your goal is to build up to 30 minutes of vig-orous exercise five times per week. Ide-ally youll be doing both cardiovascular exercise and strength training, and in the process youll build lean muscle mass. The result is an elevation in your basal metabolic rate which causes your body to burn fat even while youre rest-ing! As you follow these two health-promoting programs, you will notice that youre steadily and gradually losing weight. There will come a time, any-where from 6 months to a year after youve begun your new lifestyle, when your weight loss will stop. For example, youll notice you only lost half a pound over the previous week or two. Then youll know that youve reached your idealŽ body weight. Youve reached the weight that is normal for you. It is very likely that your new body mass index (a ratio between your height and weight) is now in the normal range or very close to the high end of normal. Youve taken control of your health and your life, and the very good news is that youve built new habits that will last a lifetime.

Following a healthy food plan and making sure to eat at least ve servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day is one important step. Engaging in a regular program of vigorous exercise is a second critical step. A third key component of an overall health-and-wellness. Regular chiropractic care helps you get the most out of all the other things you're doing. By helping reduce nerve interference, chiropractic care helps your body perform its tasks properly. For example, your digestive system works more ef ciently and you're able to make better use of the good things you're eating. Your musculoskeletal system is better able to adapt to stresses and strains and your body builds lean muscle mass where it's needed. Regular chiropractic care helps your body do the things it needs to do to keep you healthy and well. m

This valve is normally composed of three pieces of material referred to as cusps. Normally the cusps open fully at the completion of the hearts pumping cycle (systole). Many elderly patients suffer from a degenerative process in which the valve becomes calcified. This often results in narrowing or STENOSIS of the valve. If this process reaches a critical point a patient may develop some or all of the following symptoms: 1.) Dizziness2.) Loss of consciousness or near loss of consciousness 3.) Shortness of breath often worsened by exertion4.) Chest pain 5.) Palpitations caused by disturbances of the hearts normal rhythm 6.) Congestive heart failure7.) Sudden deathAortic Stenosis may also develop in certain congenital Valvular disease settings such as a Bicuspid Aortic Valve. Critical Aortic Stenosis is a disease that is not treated with medication. In most cases surgical replacement of the valve is required. However, TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement), which is a non-surgical approach to aortic valve replacement, may provide an option for some frail elderly patients. Aortic stenosis may be diagnosed and followed serially by Doppler Echocardiography, which is a non-invasive ultra-sound procedure. If a patient suspects this disease state is present he or she should seek evaluation by their Cardiologist. This article is not meant as a comprehensive explanation of Aortic Stenosis nor should it serve as a substitute for appro-priate medical attention. Symptoms such as those mentioned above require urgent evaluation by the patients physician. Q COURTESY PHOTO

But few people realize just how good! The heart is one of the most important organs for a healthy life but can be damaged by inactivity. Cycling is ideal for training the heart to be stronger which results in less stress of the heart. All the risk factors that lead to a heart attack are reduced and regular cycling reduces the likelihood of heart attack by more than 50%. A healthy heart reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases include stroke, high blood pressure and heart attack. Regular cycling stimulates and improves your heart, lungs and circulation. Your heart mus-cles are strengthened, resting pulse is lowered and blood fat levels reduced. It only takes two to four hours a week to achieve a general improvement to your health. Cycling is:Low impact … It causes less strain and injuries than some other fitness exercises. A good muscle workout … Cycling uses all of the major muscle groups as you pedal. Cycling has been shown to get you more fit than walking as you tend to get your heart rate up to a speed where it improves your health more easily. Easy … Unlike some other sports, cycling does not require high levels of physical skills. Most people know how to ride a bike and, once you learn, you never forget. Good for strength and stamina … Cycling increases stamina, strength and aerobic fitness. As intense as you want … Cycling can be done at very low intensity to begin with, if recovering from injury or illness, but can be built up to a demanding physical workout. A fun way to get fit … Cycling is fun. The adventure and buzz you get from coasting down hills and being outdoors means you are more likely to continue to cycle regularly compared to other physical activities that keep you indoors or require special times or places. Come to Krank It for a healthy heart!Check out our online schedule on Q Cycling is a good way to keep healthy and get fitDon’t smokeUsing tobacco products or smoking is a significant risk factor for developing heart disease. Within five to 10 years of quitting smoking or tobacco use, your risk for coronary artery disease will decline to a level similar to that of people who never smoked, regard-less of how long you have been a smoker.ExerciseRegular physical activity helps your heart work more efficiently, reduces blood pressure, raises good (HDL) cholesterol, lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol, decreases the tendency of blood to form clots, helps lessen stress, helps the body use insulin and contrib-utes to weight control. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on most days of the week.Eat heart-friendly foodsFruits, vegetables, whole-grains, high-fiber foods, fish, lean protein and fat-free or low-fat dairy products are the best choices to prevent heart disease. Avoid deep-fried fast foods, bakery products, packaged snack foods, margarines and crackers. Plus, too much sodium can raise blood pressure „ try not to use salt.Find your healthy weightIn general, waist measurements of greater than 40 inches for men and 35 inches for women are consid-ered indicators for being overweight.Check your blood pressure and cholesterol numbersBlood pressure higher than the optimal 120/80 millimeters of mercury and total cholesterol above 200 mg/dL can damage your heart and blood vessels. Blood pressure should be checked about every two years; cholesterol at least once every five years. If you have diabetes, monitor blood sugar levels closely. Diabetes can double or quadruple your chances of developing cardiovascular disease. With a heart attack, minutes matter. Seeking help sooner and being proactive about your care can help save heart muscle.Heart Attack Warning SignsQ Discomfort in chest, arm(s), back, neck, jaw or stomach. Q Shortness of breath. Q Nausea or vomiting. Q Indigestion. Q Lightheadedness. Q Anxiety. Q Flu-like symptoms.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2013 healthy living C11 South Florida Radiation Oncology877) A bout 94,000,000 current or former smokers in the US are at risk to die from the number one cause of cancer-related mortality. Since early detection of can-cer is our mantra, it seems that mass screening for those at a high risk would make sense. Unfortunately, ran-domized trials using chest x-rays either with or with-out cytologic examination of sputum, have done nothing to reduce the risk of dying. Molecular markers in blood, bronchial brushings and sputum have been studied in the lab, but are not yet ready for primetime in the clinic. What about helical CT screening? Nonrandomized trials have shown that low-dose single breath-hold CT shows more lung nodules and early lung cancers than chest radiog-raphy; but does it warrant the expense of CT screening and radiation exposure? In 2002 the National Cancer Institute funded the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST). This randomized trial was designed to answer the question of whether low-dose CT as compared to chest x-ray would reduce the death rate in high risk individuals. Eligible participants were asymptomatic men and women with no prior history of lung cancer between 55 and 74, smoked at least 30 pack-years, or had quit within 15 years of the study. 53,000-plus were ran-domized and underwent three annual screening examinations at enrollment, one year and two years with 5 years of followup. A positive result consid-ered suspicious for cancerŽ included noncalcified masses at least 4 mm in diameter in the CT group, or any non-calcified nodule on x-ray. 96.4% of the CT arm and 94 percent of the chest x-ray arm were false positives. 1060 lung cancers were diagnosed on the CT arm and 941 on the chest radiogra-phy arm. No surprise that more ea rly stage cancers were seen on CT. At the time of the final followup report in 2010, there were 354 deaths on the CT arm compared to 442 on the chest x-ray arm. This 20.3 percent reduc-tion in the death rate was statistically significant. So, should we be scanning 7,000,000 high risk folks? What about the risk of malignancy from radiation from the CT itself? Is CT screening cost effec-tive particularly when factoring in the cost of the CT, diagnostic followup and treatment? How do these results affect the other 87,000,000 less heavy smokers? Until the day comes when we can figure out who is really not at risk, most physicians will opt to order the CT, a test that is associated with a relatively low cost and has a possible benefit for a lot of people. Q S pira was initially invented by runners for runners who simply wanted more enjoyable, longer and productive runs. Out of these ideas, Spira was born. The WaveSpring technology offered something amazing: incredible cush-ioning and impact protec-tion against the pounding, stress and fatigue associ-ated with the sport. But the unexpected happened. The technology helped people in many other activ-ities and situations as well. Through the remarkable support of friends, the community and others, the dream of starting Spira became a reality. Today, Spira has sold almost 1 million pair of shoes. Even though the technology was initially developed for running, and over 150 major races and marathons have been won by runners wearing Spira shoes, the company receives numerous letters and emails from customers all over the world expressing how Spira has helped them in a variety of ways. From walking to standing on the job all day, from dance fitness classes to the gym, from medi-cal rehabilitation to relieving foot, leg and joint pain, from more enjoyable vacations to quicker recovery between activities, Spira is making a positive impact in many peoples lives. Receiving a testimonial letter from someone whose quality of life has improved because of Spira is extremely rewarding. And because of these inspirational letters, the Spira shoe line has expanded from running to other areas of footwear development and will continue to do so. Q Does low-dose CT screening for lung cancer save lives?Spira invented for more productive runs THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAUniversity of Florida researchers and colleagues have identified a protein that, when absent, helps the body burn fat and prevents insulin resistance and obesity. The find-ings from the National Institutes of Health-funded study were pub-lished earlier this month in the jour-nal Nature Medicine. The discovery could aid development of drugs that not only prevent obesity, but also spur weight loss in people who are already overweight, says Dr. Stephen Hsu, one of the studys corresponding authors and a principal investigator with the UF Sid Martin Biotechnology Develop-ment Institute. One-third of adults and about 17 percent of children in the United States are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although unrelated studies have shown that lifestyle changes such as choosing healthy food over junk food and increasing exercise can help reduce obesity, people are often unable to maintain these changes over time, Dr. Hsu says. The problem is when these studies end and the people go off the protocols, they almost always return to old habits and end up eating the same processed foods they did before and gaining back the weight they lost during the study.Ž Devel-oping drugs that target the pro-tein, called TRIP-Br2, and mimic its absence might allow for the preven-tion of obesity without relying solely on lifestyle modifications, he adds. TRIP-Br2 helps regulate how fat is stored in and released from cells. To understand its role, the researchers compared mice that lacked the gene responsible for production of the protein, with normal mice that had the gene. They quickly discovered that mice missing the TRIP-Br2 gene did not gain weight no matter what they ate „ even when placed on a high-fat diet „ and were otherwise normal and healthy. On the other hand, the mice that still made TRIP-Br2 gained weight and developed associated problems such as insulin resistance, Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol when placed on a high-fat diet. The normal and fat-resistant mice ate the same amount of food, ruling out differences in food intake as a reason why the mice lacking TRIP-Br2 were leaner. We had to explain why the animals eating so much fat were remain-ing lean and not getting high choles-terol. Where was this fat going?Ž Dr. Hsu says. It turns out this protein is a master regulator. It coordinates expression of a lot of genes and con-trols the release of the fuel form of fat and how it is metabolized.Ž When functioning normally, TRIP-Br2 restricts the amount of fat that cells burn as energy. But when TRIP-Br2 is absent, a fat-burning fury seems to occur in fat cells. Although other proteins have been linked to the storage and release of fat in cells, TRIP-Br2 is unique in that it regulates how cells burn fat in a few different ways, Dr. Hsu explains. When TRIP-Br2 is absent, fat cells dramatically increase the release of free fatty acids and also burn fat to produce the molecular fuel called ATP that powers mito-chondria „ the cells energy source. In addition, cells free from the influ-ence of TRIP-Br2 start using free fatty acids to generate thermal ener-gy, which protects the body from exposure to cold. TRIP-Br2 is important for the accumulation of fat,Ž says Dr. Rohit Kulkarni, also a senior author of the paper and an associate profes-sor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Joslin Diabetes Cen-ter. When an animal lacks TRIP-Br2, it cant accumulate fat.Ž Because the studies were done mostly in mice, additional studies are still needed to see if the findings translate to humans. We are very optimistic about the translational promise of our find-ings, because we showed that only human subjects who had the kind of fat (visceral) that becomes insulin-resistant also had high protein levels of TRIP-Br2,Ž Dr. Hsu says. Imagine you are able to develop drugs that pharmacologically mimic the complete absence of TRIP-Br2,Ž he says, If a patient started off fat, he or she would burn the weight off. If people are at risk of obesity and its associated conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes, it would help keep them lean regardless of how much fat they ate. That is the ideal anti-obesity drug, one that prevents obesity and helps people burn off excess weight.Ž Q Protein research could lead the way to ‘the ideal anti-obesity drug’COURTESY PHOTO George Thomas KEOLA HEALTH & WELL-BEING STUDIOS 11701 LAKE VICTORIA GARDENS AVE SUITE 7104 PALM BEACH GARDENS(561)
