ThatÂs what his dad said, and thatÂs what his business partner said. But Mr. Kleiman died young.He was 46 and had made the most of his short life. Old-timers might well have remembered Mr. Kleiman as the Palm Beach County SheriffÂs deputy who was criti-cally injured in a 1995 motorcycle crash. Mr. Kleiman, a U.S. Army veteran, was found dead at his Riviera Beach home April 30. ÂHis demise is still under investigation. It was unexpected,ÂŽ his father, Louis Kleiman, said simply. But he received a funeral worthy of a hero. ÂWe had a military procession and the man played ÂTaps.Â It was the most beautiful arrangement. The Menorah Gardens did an excellent job in this mat-ter. The crowd was overflowing,ÂŽ Louis Kleiman said. ÂAnd thank God that God gave me a good turnout. It was a beauti-ful day.ÂŽ After the motorcycle crash, David Kleiman used a wheelchair. ÂHe was strong as a bull, David. He was six feet tall, 200-plus pounds and he was a handsome devil, if ever there was one,ÂŽ his father said. After rehab, David Kleiman embarked on a career in computer forensics. He became well-known in that field, said one of his business partners, Pat-rick Paige. Their company, Computer Forensics LLC, has an office on Northlake Bou-levard. ÂHeÂs sorely missed. I was his training officer at the sheriffÂs office when he first got into law enforcement,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said, adding David Kleiman had taught him how to use a computer more than two decades ago. ÂHeÂs always been interested in computers as long as IÂve known him.ÂŽ He was smart, too.ÂHe was difficult to put up with, IÂll be honest with you. He was so brilliant. He excelled. I couldnÂt cope. He was too smart for me,ÂŽ said his father. But he put those brains to work.ÂHeÂs been in the business a long time and heÂs accomplished a lot,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. And he made more than a few friends along the way. ÂDave was somebody who I called just about every day. Not just myself. My wife, too,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. ÂHe was very secluded in a lot of things he did.ÂŽ Louis Kleiman echoed that.ÂTo be honest, we had a minimal relationship. David was very, very busy on his own. He had a business of his own,ÂŽ he said. But he had a gentle side, too.ÂHe immersed himself at work,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. ÂDave was the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back. If he had a hundred dollars in his wallet he would give it to you.ÂŽ That generosity extended beyond his friends, Mr. Paige said. David Kleiman did pro bono work for the military on computer forensic cases. ÂSo for the military, IÂm actually doing some work for the military and kind of carrying on what Dave did,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. ÂHe would get called to drive up to Jacksonville for a couple of days and not accept money for hotel stays and his time. He helped me out on numerous cases at the sheriffÂs office.ÂŽ That came naturally for David Kleiman after his own Army career. Mr. Kleiman, who grew up in Palm Beach Gardens, served as an Army heli-copter technician from 1986 to 1989. He was named soldier of the year in 1987 by the secretary of the Army while he was stationed in Germany, his father said. After his accident, that wheelchair never limited him. His father said he insisted on driving to the Veterans Administration hospital in Miami because he liked the staff there; never mind that there was a VA hospital near-by in Riviera Beach. ÂHe never let his being in a wheelchair affect what he did. He continued to do things like skydiving,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. ÂLook at his LinkedIn page. He was skydiving, jumping out of a plane. The limitations were never there.ÂŽ In David KleimanÂs final years, the physical problems began to take their toll. ÂI think it was until his last stay in the hospital, that lasted 2 to three years, that he lost a lot of body mass. He lost a lot of strength, going through five or six surgeries,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. He came home physically weaker.ÂIt became evident that he was going to need help. My wifeÂs a nurse and offered to come over and help. He refused the help,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. His father said that was so like his son. Louis Kleiman and his wife, Regina, had adopted David and his older broth-er, Leonard. Mr. KleimanÂs wife, Regina, died a few years ago. Their other son, Ira Steven, lives in Palm Beach Gardens. David Kleiman was married and divorced twice but had no children. His passing leaves a hole in his family and in his circle of friends. ÂItÂs a huge loss, but I think for me itÂs the friendship,ÂŽ Mr. Paige said. ÂHe was one of those friends who you could just pick up the phone and say, ÂHow are you doing?ÂÂŽ Q Kleiman

Addressing the epidemic of military sexual assaultRape is center stage this week after the dramatic rescue of three women from close to a decade of imprisonment in a house on a quiet street in Cleveland. The suspect, Ariel Castro, has been charged with kidnap and rape. These horrific allegations have shocked the nation, and demand a full investigation and a vigorous prosecution. Also this week, the Pentagon released a shocking new report on rape and sex-ual assault in the U.S. military. Accord-ing to the latest available figures, an estimated average of 70 sexual assaults are committed daily within the U.S. military, or 26,000 per year. The number of actually reported sexual assaults for the PentagonÂs fiscal year 2012 was 3,374. Of that number, only 190 were sent to a court-martial proceeding. There is a growing epidemic of rape and sexual assault in the U.S. military, perpetrated against both women and men with almost complete impunity. The situation blew up this week when the head of the U.S. Air ForceÂs Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office was himself arrested for sexual assault. Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski, 41, was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a park-ing lot outside an Arlington, Va., strip club. This comes after a recent case where a senior military officer over-turned the sexual assault court-martial conviction of an officer under his com-mand. Air Force Lt. Col. James Wilker-son was accused of sexually assaulting Kimberly Hanks at the Aviano Air Base in Italy. He was found guilty by a mili-tary jury, and sentenced to one year in jail and dismissal from military service. His conviction was overturned by Lt. Gen. Craig A. Franklin. Adding insult to the reversal, Wilkerson was transferred to an Air Force base in Tucson, Ariz., where many of HanksÂ family members live. They were joined by close to 50 people outside the base, protesting the overturning of his conviction and his transfer to their town. They are asking for his sentence and dismissal to be reinstated, and for Franklin to be fired. President Barack Obama addressed the rape epidemic at a press conference this week, saying: ÂIf we find out some-body is engaging in this stuff, theyÂve got to be held accountable. Prosecuted. Stripped of their position. Court-mar-tialed. Fired. Dishonorably discharged. Period. This is not acceptable.ÂŽ Anu Bhagwati is a former Marine officer, having served from 1999 to 2004, and is executive director and co-founder of Service WomenÂs Action Network. SWAN works to eliminate discrimination, harassment and assault from military culture, and to improve veteransÂ benefits for those who have been assaulted. She told a Senate hear-ing last March: ÂDuring my five years as a Marine officer, I experienced daily discrimination and sexual harassment. I was exposed to a culture rife with sex-ism, rape jokes, pornography and wide-spread commercial sexual exploitation of women and girls, both in the United States and overseas.ÂŽ When she filed a career-ending complaint against a fellow officer, she said she Âlived in fear of retaliation and violence from both the offender and my own chain of command, and then watched in horror as the offender was not only promoted but also given com-mand of my company.ÂŽ I spoke with Bhagwati, who explained how the military prosecution of these cases has an inherent conflict of interest, which undermines the ability to obtain convictions: ÂCommanding officers Â„ theyÂre called convening authorities Â„ have authority from beginning to end of a trial. They determine whether or not a case even goes forward, whether or not the accused even sees the inside of a court-martial. ThatÂs where a lot of the intimidation happens. ThatÂs where a lot of victims feel the fear. TheyÂre not supported. They donÂt follow through with their cases.ÂŽ Along with SWAN and similar groups, the campaign to end sexual assault in the U.S. military has attracted signifi-cant attention from the historically larg-est class of women in the U.S. Congress. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., has long led the charge from the House floor. The Senate Armed Services Committee now has seven women members, a record. This week, in a hearing of that com-mittee, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., grilled Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh. Alongside Gillibrand was Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who has put a hold on President ObamaÂs appointment of Lt. Gen. Susan Helms to be vice commander of the Air ForceÂs Space Command, because Helms over-turned the conviction of a captain at Vandenberg Air Force Base on sexual-assault charges. Public attention is rightly focused on the horrible crimes in Cleveland. ItÂs time for the epidemic of rape and sexual assault in the military to get the attention it deserves, as well, where the problem is institutional. An esti-mated 70 sexual-assault crimes per day, perpetrated on both women and men. Commander in Chief Obama must take decisive action, now. Taking the inves-tigations and prosecutions out of the militaryÂs hands is a first, necessary step to address this systemic rape culture presided over by the Pentagon.

She is the co-author of ÂThe Silenced Majority,ÂŽ a New York Times best-seller. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe euphemism imperative t w l p o t f amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood the other week. But not proud enough to utter the word Âabortion.ÂŽ The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shamefaced of all American rights. It hides behind evasion and euphemism. So President Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organizationÂs annual conference with-out mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said its core principle is Âthat wo men should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health.ÂŽ He excori-ated opponents involved Âin an orches-trated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to womenÂs health.ÂŽListening to him, you could be forgiven for thinking that the country is riven by a fierce dispute over whether women should be allowed to choose their own OB-GYNs or to get cancer screenings. In his speech, the president said the word ÂcancerÂŽ seven times. About that he is happy to be forthright. Imagine if he had been similarly frank about the core of Planned ParenthoodÂs work: ÂIn 2011, according to your annual report, your clinics or affiliates per-formed 330,000 abortions. ThatÂs a lot of abortion. Over 10 years more than 3 mil-lion. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. Think of all those women who wanted to terminate their pregnancies, and you were there for them. ThatÂs what you are about. And thatÂs what this country is about.ÂŽ Before that crowd, he might have gotten rousing applause, but talking in such honest terms would have been a gross faux pas. The unwritten rule when the left discusses abortion is that it shouldnÂt be called Âabortion,ÂŽ but always ÂhealthÂŽ or, more specifically Âreproductive healthÂŽ Â„ although abor-tion is the opposite of reproduction and, for one party involved, the opposite of health. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been an exercise in stripping away euphemism. He is accused of murdering babies because he allegedly didnÂt manage to kill them in the womb and had to finish the job outside the womb. His case is so dis-comfiting for liberals not only because it is such a stark picture of the seamy, money-grubbing side of abortion, but because it illustrates how slight the dif-ference is between late-term abortion Â„ or late-term ÂhealthÂŽ Â„ and what nearly everyone recognizes as a crime. In a story about the case, The New York Times referred to the newborns killed by Gosnell as Âfetuses.ÂŽ The defi-nition of a fetus according to Merriam-Webster is Âan unborn or unhatched vertebrate.ÂŽ By definition, the newborns werenÂt fetuses; they werenÂt unborn. But the Times couldnÂt bring itself to use the word Âbaby.ÂŽ This is the crux of the matter: If it is a baby outside the womb, why not inside the womb? If a procedure to end its life is wrong outside the womb, why isnÂt it wrong inside the womb? The essence of abortion is that there are two lives when you start and one when you finish. If it were your business to perform them and fight all restric-tions on them, no matter how slight, you wouldnÂt want to be forthright and honest about it, either.

PET TALESRiver runWatch out for your dog to keep swimming safe and fun BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickRivers have always been a part of my life. I grew up in Sacramento, Calif., a city that began at the spot where two mighty rivers meet. Such placement has always been a risky business, and the levees that hold the waters in place donÂt seem strong enough many a year. But even when the rivers stay where we want them, theyÂre still plenty dan-gerous Â„ to swimmers, to boaters and to the dogs who love the water as much as we do. Most times, some caution on the part of their owners Â„ not only around riv-ers, but near any body of water Â„ would prevent potential problems. The keys to water safety for dogs: prevention, pre-paredness and awareness. At this time of year, I always like to remind everyone that yes, dogs drown. And no, they donÂt know better than to just swim Â„ even when itÂs dangerous. You need to look out for your pet. No dog should be given unsupervised access to a backyard pool or a neighborhood pond or creek. Swimming pools are best fenced off for safety. And if thatÂs not possible, they should be equipped with alarms that sound when the surface of the water is broken by a child or pet falling in. Escape ramps are a great idea, but itÂs better to prevent pets from getting in unsupervised in the first place. Prevention also includes teaching your pet what to do when heÂs in the pool. Dogs donÂt understand the idea that the steps are on one side only, and they may tire and drown trying to crawl out the other side. If your pet likes to swim, work with him in the pool to help him learn where the steps are, so he can get out easily. Tip: Put contrasting paint or tape on the fence behind the steps to give your dog a visual clue he can count on. Finally, obedience training is extremely important. Your dog should come when called, even while swimming, so you can call him back before he heads into deeper water or stronger currents. Emergency shortcut: Always carry extra retrieving toys. A dog whoÂs heading out into a dangerous area after a ball or stick can often be lured back to shore with a second item thrown closer in. ItÂs no substitute for training, but it could save your dogÂs life. Before letting your dog swim in any natural surroundings, survey the area for safety. Rivers and oceans can change frequently, and an area that was safe for swimming one visit can be treacher-ous the next. Consider currents, tides, underwater hazards and even the condi-tion of the water. In the late summer, algae scum on the top of standing water can be toxic, producing substances that can kill a pet who swallows the tainted water. When in doubt, no swimming. Better safe than sorry. One of the best things you can do is to take courses in first aid and CPR for your pets. Many local Red Cross chapters offer these classes, and some veterinarians may also teach them in your community. A dog whoÂs pulled out near death from drowning may be saved by your prompt actions Â„ if you know what to do. If your dog isnÂt much of a swimmer, or is older or debilitated, get him a personal flotation device. These are especially great for family boating trips because most have sturdy handles for rescue if a pet goes overboard. Last year, I moved from a neighborhood near one river to a little farm closer to another. This year, IÂll be extra careful before I let my retriever swim, because I donÂt know the hazards here yet, and I need to before I throw a stick into the current for the first time.

School Physical, Camp Ph ysical, S ports Physical $20 JCC center receives $2 million from Bob and Beryl Schneider SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDuring the annual Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, run by the JCC of the Greater Palm Beaches, Beryl and Bob Schneider recognized how they could make a powerful impact in the commu-nity. They stopped at a Mandel JCC booth and became eager to learn more. Just one day later, after intensive talks with the JCC and touring the construction site, the couple donated $2 million to the Man-del JCC, scheduled to open in August at 5221 Hood Road. The gymnasium will be named in their honor. The JCC made the announcement in a prepared statement. ÂWe have considered for a long time the best place to utilize our resources, and we are confident we found it,ÂŽ said Ms. Schneider, who met her husband of 50 years when she was 11, in the state-ment. They attended the same school and shared many of the same friends. Said Mr. Schneider, ÂWe have always been involved in Jewish life and it is important for us to contribute to the com-munity where we live. We know the JCC will use the funds wisely. ItÂs also incred-ibly rewarding to see our contribution go directly to a project we see being built. We are counting down the days until the gymnasium can be filled with smiling lit-tle faces, and adults of all ages involved in sports leagues, ongoing programs and so much more. It instantly brings enormous smiles to our faces.ÂŽ As part of the SchneidersÂ commitment and involvement in the JCC, they will serve as co-chairs of the JCC Found-ers Gala, an event to be held in November as part of the JCCÂs week-long grand opening celebration. Additionally, Mr. Schneider was recently elected to the JCC Board of Directors. ÂBob and Beryl instantly inspired us, not only with their generous contribution, but with their eagerness to get involved, to be hands on and to have a real, last-ing impact on the JCC and our greater community,ÂŽ said Michelle Wasch-Lobo-vits, JCC executive director. ÂThey close-ly examined our finances and business model, and recognized the picture, that this project is about children, about fami-lies, those with special needs, and those of all ages so each of us has a home for Jewish life to come together.ÂŽ The Mandel JCC, a $20 million, 56,000-square-foot facility on 16 acres, also will feature a state-of-the-art-preschool, distinguished as one of six ÂSchool of ExcellenceÂŽ by the national JCC Associa-tion. It is designed for children 3 months to 4 years old. The JCC also runs the summer day camp, Camp Shalom. Facility amenities, in addition to the gymnasi-um, include an expansive aquatics center, sports fields, reception hall, indoor and outdoor playgrounds, community garden, art gallery, and space for fitness, health and wellness classes. The JCC will con-tinue to offer adult continuing education classes, bridge, lectures, health and well-ness programs, fitness classes, and chil-drenÂs programming, including for those with special needs. The building is named in honor of The Jack and Joseph and Mor-ton Mandel Foundation. For more information, call 689-7700 or see jcconline.com/mandel. Q FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 16-22, 2013 A7
A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 16-22, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY seemed to be part of the show. FPLÂs Physical Distribution Center and Category 5 Command Center in Riviera Beach was the hub of activity. The main space conjured the image of some NASA-like room, where more than a hundred science-savvy mathematical minds moseyed around drinking cof-fee, ready to react to the consequential whims of Mother Nature, make-believe as they may be. The headquarters for NextEra Energy and FPL is in Juno Beach. More than 2,800 employees are based on the cam-pus there. The media was invited to the Riviera Beach facility to watch these special-ists live out their companyÂs mantra: ÂReady, Respond, Restore.ÂŽ And though the storm was simulated, its conditions were not to be taken lightly: There were emergent scenarios and paycheck-sign-ing executives looking for answers, so these specialists better have their heads in the game. Hurricane season starts June 1 and runs through October. ÂThis helps us prepare for what, eventually, we all know will happen,ÂŽ said FPL Meteorologist Tim Drum. ÂWe want to get everybodyÂs power back on as soon as possible.ÂŽ At the end of FloridaÂs 2012 storm season, FPL started planning its 2013 storm drill. Mr. Drum was the meteorological wizard behind the Oz-like conditions of the virtual storm. His superiors came to him with specifics of what storm plans and tactics they wanted to test; he added in the weather details. ÂI am one of those lucky individuals who knew what I wanted to do in the sixth grade,ÂŽ said Mr. Drum, who was the chief meteorologist for the ABC affiliate in Springfield, Mo., before join-ing FPL, where he now thinks up hur-ricanes in the Sunshine State. ÂItÂs honestly much easier to deal with real data than trying to deal with made-up data,ÂŽ said the man who made the data up. Outside of the Distribution Per-formance and Diagnostic Center where Mr. Drum stood watching radar of real lighting strikes next to the fictional path of Hurricane Sheryl, FPL Vice President of Development and External Affairs Pamela Rauch led reporters on a tour of the rest of the command center, a space equipped with food, cots and showers. ÂFPL has a plan and we are ready,ÂŽ Ms. Rauch said. ÂWe know no storm will be the same, it will never hit the same place, it will never hit with the same intensity. We have to be flexible. We have to be ready for it.ÂŽ In its focus and intent, she sees the drill as no different than a real storm. In either scenario, FPL employees must track outages, assess damages, com-municate with customers and be ready to roll out crews as soon as itÂs safe, so thereÂs no time lost in their quest for power restoration. ÂWhen a stormÂs still hitting the east coast, our guys on the west coast are out restoring power,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Rauch led media into a situation room of sorts, to listen in on a key call among senior leadership. A flat-screen television played a pretend newscast of Hurricane Sheryl coverage. Another screen showed 1,176,558 fictional cus-tomers had no power, while another 674,558 customers had already had their power restored. Executives discussed closed bridges and open shelters, as well as accom-modating visits from the president and governor. Employees held pens, click-ing them on and off, for even though Sheryl was not a real storm, they still felt the stress of hoping they said the right thing. ÂItÂs role play, but itÂs very real,ÂŽ Ms. Rauch said. ÂPower is one of the most critical things that must be restored after a storm in order to help people get back to normal.ÂŽ After the fanciful conference call, FPL President Eric Silagy addressed the media to announce the companyÂs initia-tive to accelerate the strengthening of its electric system. From 2007 to 2012 FPL invested $460 million to strengthen its electricity-delivery backbone. Mr. Silagy said over the next three years, the company is looking to invest half a billion dollars more to further harden its infrastructure. As FPL is currently operating under a four-year rate agreement, Mr. Silagy said the plan does not impact customer rates during the three-year period of investments, after which time the Pub-lic Service Commission will reevaluate electric rates. ÂItÂs an acceleration of our long-term plan, a compression of our time sched-ule more than anything else,ÂŽ Mr. Silagy said of the initiative. ÂNow if there are no more questions, IÂm going to get back to storm drill.ÂŽ As he left the room, 987,558 fictional FPL customers were still out of power, but 852,078 customers had had their power restored.

No members present were at the original club gatherings, but the history can be traced to November 1949, when a small group of women formed the Jupiter Gar-den Club. Two years later, it was officially federated as the Hibiscus Circle, part of the Garden Clubs of America. The group met to Âexchange cuttings, seeds and ideas for gardening.ÂŽ Dues were $2. Names like Rudd, DuBois, Penna and other pioneers from the area were involved in the first years of the club, according to articles from the day. The club grew to 100-plus members in the Â70s, a Âback-to-natureÂŽ era, said Annie Hite. A library was established and workshops included making cornhusk dolls and corsages, and making bird feeders from milk cartons. Yearly plant sales and flower shows continued. As late as 1969, women were known and listed by their husbandÂs names, said Donna Sereno. She came dressed in flower-child denim with a headband adorned with peace symbols representing the decade of peace and love. ÂTheir first names were in parentheses as though their hus-bands were somehow responsible for the involvement and accomplishments of these women. Â Mrs. Robert Porter (Nell) or Mrs. Roger Swint (Elsie), the clubÂs first pres-idents, were listed as such. This caused some confusion in records when in 1963, one of the women was listed as president under two different names during her term. She had, apparently, remarried. After a few merges and several name changes Â„ for years it was called the TravelerÂs Palm Garden Club Â„ the club changed its name in 2008 to the Jupiter Tequesta Garden Club. Members decided the travelerÂs palm didnÂt repre-sent them and wasnÂt really even a palm, according to past president Judy Wil-son. The clubÂs logo is now a simple bird of paradise and includes their location. The group has tackled environmental issues Â„ moving from traditional plants to championing native species, planting with ecology in mind around public spaces like the Jupiter lighthouse grounds, and recently, Riverwalk in Jupiter. Most of the members arrived in Florida from the North and had to relearn garden-ing, so speakers and workshops are important teaching tools, Mrs. Wilson said. ÂI love Flor-ida. IÂve lived all over the country, but gardening is very different here. WeÂre in the tropics.ÂŽ To those whoÂve moved from other areas of the country, she advises them to join a garden club. ÂYouÂll learn more than youÂll ever learn from books. I learned from other members who came from up North and from our speakers.ÂŽ According to Pat Minne of Jupiter, club president from 1998-2000, there were quite a few men in the group in earlier years. ÂWhen the club first started we had a lot of men members. Not today Â„ we donÂt have any men Â„ though weÂd certainly encourage them.ÂŽ Early days had competitive flower shows each year, with themes like Sea Shells in Bloom, or Celestial Spring and Holiday House. Speakers included the revered Gene Joyner, formerly of the Mounts Botanical Gardens, who was a repeat speaker. ÂLook how young he looks in those photos,ÂŽ one member said. ÂWe all looked young,ÂŽ another quipped. Margaret McNeill, 82, of Jupiter, said she wanted to see the club do more hands-on projects during her term in 2003-2005. ÂWe learned to make arrangements and took something home from each meeting.ÂŽ Invasive and non-native plants became a focus during the last couple of decades, she said. Conservation and environmental concerns are a thread running throughout the clubÂs his-tory. At this anniversary meeting on April 29, peti-tions were on hand for the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment for members to sign or dis-tribute. Anti-littering campaigns in the Â70s, learning vegetable gardening and beautifying the community were among their projects. ÂConserving natureÂŽ was a running theme, and in the minutes of meetings, members were told to be aware of the Âdangers of phosphates to our waters.ÂŽ Fundraisers brought in money for scholarships and community projects. The club decorates a Christmas tree each year at the Foshay Cancer Center. TheyÂve helped landscape Habitat for Humanity homes in the area, worked to plant gardens at schools and pub-lic places, and over the years worked with prisoners to promote gardening for rehabilitation. Today, the themed flower shows continue biennially. Meetings include field trips, to botanical gardens, speaker and workshops with hands-on planting proj-ects throughout the area. The club is dormant through summer, but workshops continue, Mrs. Rahla said. Meetings will resume in Septem-ber in Jupiter.

These images are used to detect breast cancer and other abnor-malities that cannot be found by you or your doctor. A mammogram can detect cancer much earlier, when the prognosis for survival is much bet-ter and there are more treatment options. When breast cancer is found early, the five-year survival rate is 95 percent. Like almost all medical tests, mammograms are not 100 percent accurate, but they are the best method of early detection for breast cancer. There are two types of mammograms: screening and diagnostic. The main difference between a screening mammogram and a diagnostic mam-mogram is its purpose. A screening mammogram is used to detect breast abnormalities in women who show no cancer symptoms. Two images of each breast are taken to look for abnormalities. A diagnostic mammogram uses a more detailed, accurate X-ray than screening mammograms and is used when a screening mammogram detects an abnormality, or when a woman complains of a breast lump, nipple discharge, breast pain or other symptom. Breast cancer survivors may need diagnostic mammograms in the first few years after surgery or treatment. Breast cancer risk increases as a woman ages. Screening recommenda-tions vary. The U.S. Preventive Ser-vices Task Force recommends bien-nial screening mammography for women ages 50 to 74. According to the American Cancer Society, women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam at least once every three years and beginning at age 40, women should have a clinical breast exam and screening mammogram every year. Ultimately, women should talk to their doctors and make an informed decision about whether mammography is right for them based on their family history, general health and personal values. Women who are at a higher risk for breast cancer should talk to their doc-tors about having annual breast MRI performed. Those risks include: Q Family history of breast cancer before age 50 or more than one rela-tive with breast cancer. Q Personal history of breast cancer. Q Positive test for hereditary risk of breast cancer. Q Previous biopsy with high-risk lesion. Q Chest radiation therapy between ages 10 and 30. If you are in need of a mammogram you should schedule your exam at a center or hospital that has an experienced team of technicians and radiologists. The team at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has the expe-rience and skill you are looking for. Their goal is to administer the high-est quality examination, while mak-ing you as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure. To prepare for your mammogram, itÂs a good idea to: Q Not wear deodorants, powder, perfumes or creams around your breasts or underarms. Q Wear an outfit with a separate top and bottom. Q Bring previous mammography results if youÂre seeing a new radiolo-gist. Q Schedule your mammogram when your breasts are least sensiti ve, usually the week before your period. Q Mammograms are just one tool to detect breast cancer. Women should also do monthly breast self-exams and schedule annual clinical breast exami-nations with their gynecologists.

ItÂ’s up to Dad to help make sure baby doesnÂ’t usurp the marriageJake gathered his pillow and blanket and headed for the spare bedroom. He was careful not to wake Jenna. He couldnÂt remember the last time heÂd had a decent nightÂs sleep. Once again, 6-year-old Alex was sprawled between them, hogging the covers and tossing restlessly. FiFi, their poodle, was curled up next to Jenna. Jake had just about given up voicing how unhappy he was with the sleeping arrangements. His complaints fell on deaf ears. Jenna would agree they had to do something about getting Alex to sleep in his own room, but somehow it reverted to the same nightly drama. Jenna spent the entire evening attending to the needs of their children. And forget about sex. He couldnÂt remember the last time the two of them had been intimate. He wondered if Jenna missed their alone time, or even if she cared about him anymore.Sadly, the above scenario is far from unique. Many parents donÂt intentionally start out with their young children in their beds. More likely, they have found it more expedient to have their children close by to facilitate nursing, or as a means to settle a childÂs anxieties or cries. But, over time, in many households, parents become caught up in an exhaust-ing nightly round of musical beds. Pre-dictably, the children may test every trick in the book to postpone bedtime, hoping to out-fox the parents. And, much of the time, they attempt to settle into the parentsÂ private domain, protesting with fears of being alone. Well-meaning par-ents may cajole and reassure to no avail, and ultimately cave in so the family can get a decent nightÂs sleep. The routine becomes so ingrained the parents give up even attempting to transfer the chil-dren to their own beds, assuming there are no possible alternatives. Not surprisingly, the presence of a young child (or even our canine friends!), in the marital bedroom can prove trying for even the most well adjusted partners. The marriage understandably may become hampered because this arrange-ment is not an appropriate substitute for mature emotional relating. Importantly, the children are often compromised by this situation, as well, because they may feel uncomfortable and pressured to meet their parentÂs needs. Of course, itÂs a given that we need to give our children ample doses of affection and attention. But it becomes concerning, if over time, one partner believes their spouse is so focused on the needs of the children that there is little or no time for intimacy. According to findings from the Relationship Research Institute in Seattle, approximately two-thirds of couples experience a sharp decline in the qual-ity of their relationship within three years after the birth of a child. Stud-ies reveal that when new parents have decreased time and energy for adult interaction and intimacy, emotional dis-tance and conflict may develop. Noted family therapist Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues elected to study, instead, those couples who not only adjusted to parenting challenges, but who actually thrived. It became appar-ent that motivated couples could actu-ally safeguard their relationships by taking certain protective steps. In his best selling book, ÂThe Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work,ÂŽ Gottman highlights these critical prin-ciples: ÂWhat separates these couples from the rest has noting to do with whether their baby is colicky or a good sleeper, whether they are nursing or bottle-feeding, working or staying home. Rather it has everything to do with whether the husband experiences the transforma-tion to parenthood along with his wife or gets left behind.ÂŽ ÂHaving a baby almost inevitably causes a metamorphosis in the new mother. She has never felt a love as deep and selfless as the one she feels for her child. The experience is so life-altering that if her husband doesnÂt go through it with her, it is understandable that distance would develop between them.ÂŽ According to Gottman, the answer is simple. The husband has to follow his wife into the new realm she has entered for the marriage to grow. The impor-tant thing is that they are in it together. ÂTo the extent that the husband and wife make this philosophical shift, the parent-child relationship and the mar-riage thrive.ÂŽ The key is to focus on the marital friendship. Both partners must be sensi-tive to the demands and responsibilities child-care have placed on each other. It is important they communicate an understanding that each has had to give up a tremendous amount of their per-sonal life for the well being of the child, and that they truly appreciate and value the efforts. When they further demon-strate over and over how committed they each are to the marital bond, they are far more likely to be patient and to carry less resentment. So, itÂs certainly not unreasonable that they both make an effort to protect their private, special time each night.

Those born and raised in the state remember a lifestyle that grew out of the uniqueness of the place, before explosive growth changed it all. Their experience living here year-round, from cradle to grave, is in con-trast to the majority of snowbirds who come to nest for a brief time and then return home to their distant and native habitat. The economic impact of this annual migration is huge and transformative: In 2004, a study reported that 7.2 mil-lion people visited the county, spending $2.83 billion while they stayed, includ-ing $80 million for lodging, and $353 million for food and drink. Those who stay and become permanent residents fuel economic growth, too. But as new transplants, they often congregate within gated communities, insulated from the full encounter of place by choice. ThereÂs little incentive to connect with the actual experience of life lived out of the compound. When residents of the enclaves venture forth, they want replicated the experiences back home they miss. ItÂs an expecta-tion with consequence. Business and government satisfied yearning for the familiar with a brand of development that spread with the ferocity of the Bra-zilian Pepper. Were it not for the weather, beaches, vegetation, and the absence of state income taxes, you can almost miss youÂre in Florida. ItÂs the price paid for prog-ress and lassoing the highest per capita income in the state. The disappearance of palmetto scrub, wetlands, blue crab and smoked mullet are minor laments. Today, tourism, construction and agriculture drive the countyÂs economy. Agriculture may be a surprise outlier if you have never been west of I-95. The public and private sectors embraced with few regrets the inevitability of change wrought by these industries. With a base population of more than 1.3 million and 38 municipalities, the coun-ty is long past the point of no return. So how is it that the Town of Jupiter has managed with some success to conserve now and for the future a more eco-friendly, lower density, laid-back place and lifestyle reminiscent of Florida past? You can find some of the answer by attending Jupiter University. The course is offered annually by the Town of Jupiter and recently concluded its 2013 run. In its 10th year, the town designs the course as a series of individ-ual site visits exploring whatÂs unique about living in Jupiter. You can sign up for one or all the sessions. Each session showcases the products of a vision born 20 or more years ago about how best to guide the townÂs long-term destiny. Population growth was escalating and an era of relentless development was in full tilt, devouring palmetto scrub, wildlife habitat and beach frontage like a feast of no-fat French fries. The vision and values guiding the townÂs manage-ment of its development changed what happened here. Jupiter University dis-plays whatÂs been learned and the value of long-term thinking. The most recent course consisted of eight sessions that averaged a couple hours each, held over a four-week peri-od. Anyone can sign up. Extra classes are orchestrated for the most popular sessions such as the history tour. The 2013 attendees were in majority town residents interested in learning more about the town. Your appreciation grows. The town has done a better job than many coastal communities in managing development, protecting the environment and pre-serving open spaces, public beaches, parks, recreational areas and making accessible to people of modest means the qualities and amenities of paradise otherwise lost to the highest bidder. This is a battle never entirely won or done but it starts with a vision of a community inclusive of people who live here and that need employment, hous-ing, education and support services. To preserve ÂcommonwealthÂŽ is to provide a state of wealth and well being that is commonly shared. ItÂs a core principle of the charitable sector but it takes good government to create that space and its reality, especially for those on the margins of our society. Few places can lay claim to providing a commonwealth for its residents as authentic as whatÂs been achieved by Jupiter. ItÂs not perfect, but to the extent that it is, itÂs because the town has long sustained, for the benefit of the many, its commitment to this goal.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF MAY 16-22, 2013 A13 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau recognized the International Polo Club Palm Beach with the prestigious 2013 Providencia Award, based on the organizationÂs sig-nificant and substantial impact on the destinationÂs tourism industry. The honor was awarded to John Wash, president of IPC, before a sellout crowd of tourism and hospitality leaders dur-ing the annual Tourism Day luncheon. National Travel and Tourism Week is a sanctioned campaign of the U.S. Travel Association, aimed at generating aware-ness of the importance of travel and tourism to the county. ÂThe Providencia Award is Palm Beach CountyÂs most important sym-bol of recognition for the local tourism industry, which employs 45,000 county residents and contributes over $5 billion annually to the local economy,ÂŽ said CVB president and CEO Jorge Pesquera, in a prepared statement. ÂI could not think of a better time to celebrate this award, its recipient, and the many, very worthy nominees, than today, when industry representatives from around the country are rallying together to rec-ognize the extraordinary, economic con-tribution of tourism here in the United States.ÂŽ The Polo Club was chosen as one of three finalists by the CVBÂs Providencia Committee, which evaluated and scored 15 different nominations. Those three finalists were then put to a public vote online. This yearÂs finalists included Lynn University, The Honda Classic and the International Polo Club Palm Beach. ÂThe International Polo Club is home to AmericaÂs triple crown Â„ the three highest rated polo tournaments on the continent: the USPA C.V. Whitney Cup, the Piaget USPA Gold Cup, and the USPA U.S. Open Polo Championship. And now, we couldnÂt be happier to be home to the 2013 Providencia Award. Our 10th anniversary season broke all records. Winning the Providencia Award is truly the icing on the cake. We thank everyone for their support.ÂŽ Mr. Wash said in the statement. There were 12 other nominees for this yearÂs Providencia Award, including Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative, Palm Beach International Boat Show, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Equestrian Sport ProductionsÂ CEO, Mark Bellissimo, Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, and the Palm Beach International Raceway. ÂIn 2013, Palm Beach CountyÂs tourism industry will generate more than $5 billion for the local economy, record-ing triple growth over the past three decades,ÂŽ said Mr. Pesquera. ÂIt is a truly incredible sign of our industryÂs resil-ience that we have made a full recovery after some challenging economic times, and are close to our all-time peaks in virtually every tourism performance category.ÂŽ Q Polo Club receives Providencia awardCOURTESY PHOTOJorge Pesquera, left, CEO of the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau, presented the Providencia Award to John Wash, president of the International Polo Club. Inflation or deflation revisitedÂThe great debate: Inflation or deflation.ÂŽThis exact title appeared in the Money and Investing column on Aug. 6, 2009, close to four years ago. The column began: ÂWhat debate? The debate in every money managerÂs mind. The debate in most boardrooms. The debate in coffee shopsÂƒ. The debate within my own mind. Best articulated, will the U.S. continue to experience deflationary pressures or will the aggressive increases in the money sup-ply by the Federal Reserve Board (the ÂFedÂŽ) intended to cure economic ills ultimately result in inflation?ÂŽ The 2009 column did not boldly predict which side would win the economic tug of war. It did define the critical debate as having strong, opposing forces. Surprisingly, that column applies to the present. Incorrectly, the column assumed the FedÂs policies could dramatically increase the money supply. The FedÂs policy has quadrupled its balance sheet and, perversely, institutionalized what was unsustainable U.S. deficit spend-ing. But the FedÂs collective monetary actions have not created inflation. What is needed? Mild levels of inflation get people and businesses buying and build-ing. Rampant inflation generally causes a bust. Deflation causes a horrid downward spiral as people sit on their money waiting for tomorrowÂs lower price. Inflation is defined as a monetary problem with a monetary cause: either money supply expanded beyond levels needed to support GDP growth and/or velocity (the speed at which money is used or the demand for money) expanded. If either situation occurs, then inflation happens. If both occur, then inflation can explode. Point of fact: the U.S. money supply is only growing at 3 to 4 percent at 2012-year end (with velocity drop-ping). We are not the only ones disappointed, zero percent in the UK and Japan and 2.5 percent and falling in the Euro zone. Perverse monetary things happened in this great recession. Monetary history did not repeat itself. First, demand for money/velocity (which the Fed does not control) was considered to be a constant but, in this recession, it contracted as the private sector (willingly or unwillingly) reduced its demand for money. Second, the Fed expected inflation from the trillions it printed as it assumed that increased bank reserves would translate into more bank lending. That did not happen. The increases remained as large, electronic reserves held at the Fed by the member banks and the credit creation multiplier effect never happened. The FedÂs fuel was not used. In 2012, the CPI was 2.1 percent and the PPI was 1.3 percent. In summary, there was minimal inflation. A few questions ensue: 1) why do many Americans perceive inflation; 2) if not the U.S., then which countries did have big money growth since 2007Âs central banks took power; and 3) where are we today? Americans hear the Fed is printing and immediately assume inflation is happening. Not so, according to the PPI and CPI Â„ as of yet. Yes, food prices are higher as grain prices exploded due to major droughts Â„ weather has nothing to do with the Fed. Costs of medical/insurance and schooling/college have skyrocketedÂƒ. but not energy, clothing and a host of other CPI categories. Obviously, seniors feel inflation as their expenditures are skewed to fast-rising medical. Other countries besides the U.S. yearn for inflation. The Japanese are equivalently easing (if proportioned to the size of the U.S. economy) at $200 billion per month versus our $85 billion monthly. Contrast this to China with a fast growing money supply and inflation concerns. ÂFor the first quarter, money supply growth exceeded the governmentÂs target of 13 per-centÂŽ (Bloomberg, April 11, ÂChina Lending Tops Forecasts While Adding to Financial RisksÂŽ). After the economic crash, China functioned as a powerhouse for the worldÂs recovery. To accommodate its GDP growth Â„ in excess of 7 percent Â„ the money sup-ply needed to grow. Since 2007, the worldÂs money supply growth (based on the 16 larg-est economies and calculated in U.S. dollars) has come from: China (40 percent), the U.S. (15 percent), Brazil (7 percent), India (6 percent) and the UK (5 percent). These are numbers you would not expect (www.financialiceberg.com, ÂWhatÂs behind Chi-naÂs slowing forex reserves?ÂŽ). Some of ChinaÂs money growth translated into real estate inflation and (much noted) ÂbustedÂŽ investments. Recent months saw a reversal in Chinese balance of payments because the very wealthy might be moving into foreign assets or selling yuan assets (impacting the capital account balance) and because ChinaÂs exports are hurt by a lower Yen (impacting the trade balance). Slower economic growth in China would means slower world GDP growth and credit creation and the U.S. is not immune. Beijing, we got a problem! Yes, China understands that it needs to ramp up its growth. For the first quarter 2013, ÂAggregate financing surged about 58 percent from a year earlier to 6.16 trillion yuanÂƒ.. New local-currency loans in the first three months were Âƒ12 percent higher (year over year)ÂŽ (Bloomberg, April 11). What does it all mean? 1. If China stalls, the world might spiral into deflation. 2. The end game is not knowable, as the linear mon-etary equations have failed and the U.S. no longer runs the global money game. Portfolios structures need to accommodate for several bizarre economic outc omes, not just a continuation of bull markets. As such, a limited portfolio is a champ now but, in the end game, may be a very poor asset allocation. Bizarre can happen overnight!

Homes selling fast in the Northeast is good news for real estate market here The Northeast and South Florida could practically be called neighbors. As far apart as they are in miles, they are very close in the connection that keeps our real estate market healthy. Not only do I have several clients from the North-east, but my sister Sharla lives in Upper Montclair, N.J. I have had several clients come to Florida from the surrounding Montclair area, but I have yet to sell to a client from Montclair itself.A few days ago, I was talking to Sharla and she was telling me the story of how she just purchased a new home. They began looking for a home a few years ago, but with the market in a recession, they decided to stay in their current home. Sharla and her husband didnÂt feel they could get enough equity out of their home to move up to the home they were interested in. She told her real estate agent, Pam, that they were most likely going to stay where they were, but her realtor kept emailing her available homes that met their criteria. A year or so passed and then, in March, Sharla ran into Pam at the gro-cery store. Sharla reiterated that they were going to stay put in their cur-rent home, but that she appreciated the updated emails, like most potential buyers do. Pam was very polite, but ignored SharlaÂs request and still for-warded homes that would come on the market. Pam also informed Sharla that the market had taken a quick turn and it was a perfect time to sell her home. Three weeks ago, without any intention of moving, Sharla received another email from Pam. The house looked like exactly what she and her family had in mind for their next move and Sharla called Pam. It was a Friday and they went to view the home on Saturday. When they arrived at the home, the listing agent informed Pam that they were supposed to have an offer coming in that afternoon. Feeling a little pres-sure, but knowing the location and size of home were perfect for their family, Sharla and her husband Bob made an offer. But by the time 5 p.m. on Saturday came, there were two other offers. The homeowner said they were going to take the weekend and think about which offer to accept. Not knowing where they stood with their offer at the time, Sharla hand wrote a letter to the owner telling them their family background, their plans for the home and their desire to keep the positive attributes of the home just as they were. Much to her surprise, the owners accepted her offer. It was not the highest offer, but was very close and was the most sincere. Now the rush was on to get her own home listed in time to sell before the end of August when the new home would be ready. Within a week, she listed her own home with Pam and Pam advertised the home in the local news-paper and via email that there would be an open house over the next weekend. The open house was beyond a success. There were 120 people who came to view the home Â„ the most Pam had ever seen at an open house in her more than 30 years in the real estate business. By the end of the day, Sharla, too, had multiple offers! This is a true success story and also an indication to our Northeastern friends that their real estate market has turned as well. Good news for the Palm Beaches because all the buyers that were waiting for their home to sell up North, now actually have a great opportunity. The connection doesnÂt stop here, however. A week after SharlaÂs home went under contract she met the buyer of her home. The buyer wanted to show the home to her designer. Sharla and the new buyer got to talking. Oddly enough, the buyerÂs main residence will be in New Jersey but they are also looking for a second home in Jupiter or Palm Beach Gardens. They have contacted me to search for a home for them in the area and I am looking forward to them not only being SharlaÂs neighbor, but my neighbor as well! Q Â„ Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates. She can be reached at 7226136, or at email@example.com. A14 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 16-22, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY t w t e e m c heather PURUCKER BRETZLAFF French urns adorn rooms with 18th-century styleWhat sells at antique shops and shows is determined by customers who might like traditional, modern, eclectic, country, art deco, arts and crafts, vic-torian, Western or many other styles. Preferences are influenced by age, loca-tion and what a collector remembers from MomÂs and GrandmaÂs houses. French porcelain has been popular since the 18th century, and large urns still sell quickly. While Sevres porcelain is the best-known, there were many other designers and factories. Large urns were made by the end of the 18th century to be used in large rooms with high ceil-ings or in gardens. Those that look like a large flower pot on a pedestal held plants or flowers. Most were placed on the floor. Those that narrowed at the top and had a cover and elaborate decorations were strictly ornamental. They were put on a low table or a fire-place mantel to be admired. All of them are called Âurns,ÂŽ and the decorated ones often are called ÂSevres-style.ÂŽ Of course, the original old urns made by the Sevres factory are the most desir-able and most expensive. But some of the Sevres-style urns by others sell for high prices, too. The quality of the work, the amount of gold trim and the beauty of the decoration set the price. Prices range from a few hundred dollars to more than $10,000. Most popular are pictures of masses of flowers or land-scapes that include well-dressed people. Q: I bought a piece of property that hap-pened to have a mobile home parked on it. Once I bought the property, I owned the mobile home, too. The three-piece bed-room set in the mobile home includes a bed, dresser and chest of drawers. The mark inside a drawer on the dresser and chest is ÂHenredon Fine Furniture.ÂŽ What can you tell me about the company and the setÂs value?A: Henredon Furniture Co. was founded in Morgantown, N.C., in 1945, so the bedroom set was not made before that year. The Henredon brand name has been owned by Furniture Brands, Inc., based in St. Louis, since 2001. Henredon furniture is known to be of high quality, but your set would sell as Âused furniture,ÂŽ not as Âantique furniture.ÂŽ Try to sell it locally Â„ it is expensive to ship furniture a long way.Q: I know about Teco pottery and its matte green vases, but I just heard the company also made tiles. Is that true? A: Yes. A color ad in a 1913 catalog shows a variety of tile murals and single tiles used for trim made by Teco. Other tiles are also pictured. Earlier black-and-white ads show different tiles. Teco advertised that it made Âarchitectural terra cotta, Teco and garden pottery and wall, floor and art tileÂŽ until 1917 or later. Q: Years ago, I took a chance and won a Âbas-ket of cheerÂŽ at a church bazaar. I still have one of the unopened bottles from that basket. ItÂs a bottle of Benedictine liqueur with a red seal on the front and a label that reads ÂD.O.M.ÂŽ and Â86 proof.ÂŽ I figure itÂs an antique and would like to sell it, but I donÂt know how to go about it.A: Benedictine is an herbal liqueur that has been produced in France since the 1860s. Â D.O.M.ÂŽ has been its motto since the beginning and stands for ÂDeo Optimo Maximo,ÂŽ which can be translated as ÂPraise be to God, most good, most great.ÂŽ Bacardi owns the brand today. Your bottle is not an antique, since it has to date from after the end of Prohibition in the United States. But it was bottled before the liqueurÂs alcohol con-tent was lowered to 80 proof. U.S. liquor laws come into play when you want to sell a full bottle of an alcoholic beverage, even a bottle some might consider collect-ible. Some national auctions hold special whiskey auctions every year. Unless you just spread the word among your friends and acquaintances to sell your bottle, you might try contacting a nationally known auction house. Your bottle might sell for $50 or more.Q: You mentioned that old glass bottles and insulators and even pressed glass goblets may turn purple if left in the sun a long time. Why? A: We learned from an article in Antique Bottle & Glass Collector maga-zine that coloring changes in glass are caused by chemicals in the glass. Arse-nic was used in glassmaking before World War II, and when left in the sun, that glass turns yellow. Manganese was used before 1930, and that glass turns pale purple in sunlight. The very dark purple bottles seen at flea markets today are irradiated with modern machines, not by the slow rays of the sun. Tip: When repairing a table or toy, take digital pictures at each stage. Even photograph the screws and nails so you can put everything back in the same place. The photos in reverse order are a step-by-step guide to what to do.

WEEK OF MAY 16-22, 2013ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE A23 COURTESY PHOTO It has been hailed as the best place on the planet for cabaret. And The Colony HotelÂs Royal Room promises to heat up this summer with some favorite headliners plus a new dance-friendly format. ThatÂs right, dance.The Royal Room will be open at 6:30 p.m. for cocktails every Friday and Saturday from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. From 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., patrons can dance during dinner, then settle down to enjoy a cabaret performance. ÂI think itÂs one of the best rooms in the entire country. There arenÂt plac-es like The Colony and to be able to perform there is very special because itÂs a little piece of history,ÂŽ said Nicolas King, who opens the summer cabaret series. ÂItÂs carrying the torch of the good, old supper club. For me to perform at a place that captures that era is very special to me.ÂŽ In addition to its usual prix fixe dinner, The Royal Room will offer lighter fare. The lineup this summer includes some favorites from previous years. HereÂs a look: Q Nicolas King Â„ Ma y 24-25, May 31-June 1 and June 7-8: Mr. King, the youngest perform-er to debut in the Royal Room, returns for his third engagement in the last year. He was first seen on Broadway in ÂBeauty & the Beast,ÂŽ then in ÂA Thousand ClownsÂŽ opposite Tom Selleck and appeared in ÂHollywood Arms,ÂŽ all before age 13. He opened for Liza Minnelli during her 2006 tour and won a Julie Wilson Award from the Mabel Mercer Foundation at the 2010 Cabaret Convention. Judy Garland stayed at The Colony on the eve of the Kennedy inauguration. Mr. King said he told Ms. Minnelli where he was per-forming, and she said, ÂFar out.ÂŽ Q Ariana Savalas Â„ June 14-15, 21-22, 28-29: Ariana Savalas has an uncanny ability to choose songs old and new for her cabaret per-formances. The daughter of ÂKojakÂŽ star Telly Savalas, the singer also is an accomplished songwriter with a wicked sense of humor. She also guest-starred on ÂCriminal Minds.ÂŽ Q Carole J. Bufford Â„ July 5-6, 12-13 and 19-20: In addition to performing in concerts across the country, ÂBroadway By The YearÂŽ concerts, Ms. Bufford starred in Scott Sie-gelÂs Â11 OÂClock Numbers at 11 OÂClockÂŽ at FeinsteinÂs at The LoewÂs Regency along with Christina Bianco and Scott Coulter. Q Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano Â„ July 26-27, Aug. 2-3 and 9-10: The couple will make their seventh appearance at the Royal Room, singing music ranging from Cole Porter to Paul Simon, Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell. Q Wayne Hosford Â„ Aug. 16-17, 23-24 and 30-31: The artist combines music and comedy and has performed with Margaret Whiting, Steve Ross, Avery Sommers and Jay Leonhart, and is returning to the Royal Room for his fourth engagement.

Or at least a small battalion. That is what Beth Clark and D. Shawn Berry and their team of coaches, parents, cho-reographers and musicians have assembled for the 350-member ensembleÂs 10th anniversary concert May 19 at the Kravis Center. ÂI am feeling so excited about the future. WeÂre ending a decade of really helping a lot of kids and we benefit of course from the children, too, and the families. ItÂs been such a great ride with them too,ÂŽ said Ms. Clark, executive director of the Young Singers.Young Singers of the Palm Beaches mark their first decade with a concert at the Kravis Center A decade of lifting every voice BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.com Students at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre plan a weekend excursion to the Great Plains in a production of ÂOklahoma!ÂŽ The ensemble of teens from the theaterÂs Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts will perform the Rodgers and Ham-merstein musical May 18-19 at Jupiter High SchoolÂs auditorium. The cast will include 72 young performers in grades 3-12 who have spent the past year at the conservatory immersed in both rehearsals and dramaturgical research. The kids are being led by two Broadway veterans, Anna McNeely and Brian Andrews, both of whom starred in the original cast of ÂCatsÂŽ and now are instructors at the Maltz conservatory. For those who donÂt know the show, ÂOklahoma!ÂŽ follows a com-munity of settlers in 1906 as Okla-homa nears statehood. In it, cowboy Curly woos farm girl Laurey. The musical was a smash hit on Broadway when it opened in 1943 and has remained popular, from the title song right on down to such tunes as ÂOh, What a Beautiful MorninÂÂŽ and ÂThe Surrey with the Fringe on Top.ÂŽ The show also was Richard RodgersÂ and Oscar HammersteinÂs first collaboration. ItÂs a big score, and a big challenge for its young cast. ÂFor me, this is pretty much my first major show at the Maltz. I just came in last summer, so let alone get a lead role, thatÂs amazing, and to be in a big play, thatÂs crazier,ÂŽ said the Curly of this production, AustinMaltz students explore new frontiers in Â“Oklahoma!Â” BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comSEE MALTZ, A28 X SEE SINGERS, A29 X
SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA man of another nameI have a debilitating fear of flying. The woman on the plane white-knuckling the armrest? ThatÂs usually me. So I was grateful during a recent flight when the man in the seat next to me took a look at my clenched fists and terrified expression and decided to distract me. ÂMy grandpa used to say that everyone who comes into our lives has something to teach us,ÂŽ he said. I pried my eyes from the window long enough to scowl at him. ÂIs that so?ÂŽ The man introduced himself. He had one of those ubiquitous names, a permutation of John or David or Michael with the kind of last name that has three pages in the phone book. His e-mail address, too, was common. ÂJust my first name and my last name at Gmail,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou wouldnÂt believe how many messages I get for guys who have the same name.ÂŽ The jet engines droned and I gripped the hand rest. But the man talked on and my hands started to relax. ÂFor a while there, I was getting e-mails from this second-grade teach-er,ÂŽ he said. ÂShe thought she was e-mailing some kidÂs dad. She sent these real tough messages: ÂYour son is about to get expelledÂ and ÂYour sonÂs behavior is unaccept-able.ÂÂŽ After a while, the man decided to write her back. ÂI told her who I was,ÂŽ he said. ÂThat she had the wrong guy. Then I asked if she ever considered that instead of yelling at the father, she might ask if something was wrong.ÂŽ ÂYouÂre kidding,ÂŽ I said.The man smiled. ÂWould you believe she wrote me back? A few months later Â„ to tell me that the family had been evicted and were liv-ing out of their car. She thanked me for my advice.ÂŽ I tried to imagine it Â„ this anonymous stranger doling out wisdom over e-mail. How would it feel, I won-dered, to be on the receiving end? The man next to me smiled. ÂAnd thatÂs not even the best one.ÂŽ A man with his name was going through a rough divorce and the manÂs ex-wife decided to take out her frustrations over e-mail. The wrong e-mail. After a few stinging messages in his inbox, the man next to me wrote the ex-wife. ÂI told her I wasnÂt her husband, but I was a human being. Look, I know breakups are ugly. But we should all treat each other with dignity.ÂŽ I envisioned the sort of vitriol the ex-wife must have slung back. But the man just shook his head. ÂShe said she got so wrapped up in her anger that she forgot she might be hurting someone.ÂŽ Here was a piece of truth I had not considered. I thought of my own moments of escalating outrage. Per-haps my attempts at love would be more successful if someone were there to pull me back from the angry edge Â„ a stranger with my loverÂs name who was rational and kind but who had no stakes. Here was the lesson, then, in our meeting. A piece of wisdom I could tuck in my carry-on and take with me. I was so grateful I hardly noticed the plane touching down.

A law was made a distant year ago here that July and August cannot be too hot. Well, maybe not, unless you have Clive Cholerton leading the show. Mr. Cholerton led a sold-out engagement last January of concert perfor-mances Lerner & LoeweÂs ÂCamelotÂŽ at Palm Beach Dramaworks. He will return this summer with additional performances, this time of ÂMan of La ManchaÂŽ and ÂCarousel.ÂŽ He could not be happier.ÂTheyÂre old, dear friends of mine and our family,ÂŽ he said of Palm Beach DramaworksÂ producing artistic direc-tor, William Hayes, and Mr. HayesÂ wife, Sue Ellen Beryl, the theaterÂs manag-ing director. ÂMy wife is such a regu-lar there. ItÂs such a nice environment there.ÂŽ Mr. CholertonÂs wife, Margery L owe, is a singing actress who has appeared onstage at Dramaworks, and has starred on area stages for years. And Mr. Cholerton himself knows a thing or two about staging a concert performance of a show, having memo-rably produced such shows as Steven SondheimÂs ÂInto the Woods,ÂŽ ÂSunday in the Park with GeorgeÂŽ and ÂFolliesÂŽ at Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton, where he was artistic director. With CaldwellÂs closing last year, this gives Mr. Cholerton an opportunity to whet his appetite for theater. ÂItÂs really nice to be doing these concert things. It was something I had so much passion for at Caldwell,ÂŽ he said. ÂI canÂt be more excited this summer.ÂŽ ÂMan of La Mancha,ÂŽ inspired by Miguel de CervantesÂs 17th-century masterpiece ÂDon Quixote,ÂŽ is set to run July 10-21. Caryl Fantel will serve as musical director for the show, whose memorable tune is ÂThe Impossible Dream.ÂŽ Rodgers and HammersteinÂs ÂCarouselÂŽ will run Aug. 7-18. The score includes such standards as ÂIf I Loved You,ÂŽ ÂJune is BustinÂ Out All Over,ÂŽ and ÂYouÂll Never Walk Alone.ÂŽ Paul Reekie will be music director. It will make for a tuneful summer at Palm Beach DramaworksÂ Don & Ann Brown Theatre, and for that, Mr. Cho-lerton is happy. After all, it gives him an opportunity to work in the theater world again. Mr. Cholerton never entirely abandoned his day job Â„ he still runs a financial planning firm in Boca Raton. That provides him with an income; the performances at Dramaworks will provide him with something else. ÂIt gives me a nice theatrical respite away from that, a little summer vaca-tion,ÂŽ he said. Well, that, and it is at Dramaworks, which has received national praise for its productions. ÂEverything is so well run and so well done, so itÂs just a great environment to work in,ÂŽ he said. Q Palm Beach Dramaworks will host one of its Kno wledg e & Nibbles events May 22 for its next production, ÂDanc-ing at Lughnasa.ÂŽ During Knowledge and Nibbles, participants have a light lunch together then head to the theater, where the director and cast of a show talk about the production and their roles. The next show, Brian FrielÂs ÂDancing at Lughnasa,ÂŽ tells the story of the five adult Mundy sisters, who make the most of their uncomplicated existence in Ireland. The play is narrated by the adult son of one of the sisters, who looks back with affection, sensitivity and insight to a summer in his auntsÂ cottage during his childhood. Knowledge & Nibbles will be held 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. May 22. Cost is $25 theater guild members and groups of 20 or more; $35 for all others. Call 514-4042, Ext. 2, for tickets.

He plans to study musical theater next year at the New World School of the Arts in Miami. ÂCurly is pretty much the macho man, the cowboy. All the girls like, ÂOh, my gosh, oh, my gosh.Â He just walks around, you know. HeÂs the main guy. He has his differences with the farmers and he has his Jud Fry differenc-es, then he has that one girl he likes and he goes to Aunt Eller and asks, ÂHow could I get her to like me back?Â And itÂs the same thing with her. He just plays it off. He wants to date her or marry her and itÂs like the same thing. He just plays it off,ÂŽ Mr. Carroll said. His leading lady, Jessica Woodard, also 18, has studied at the Maltz for four years. She is home-schooled and will graduate this summer. She will attend Palm Beach State College to get some classes out of the way then audition for conservatories to study opera. She is a soprano. Her instinct was to be a belter when she came to the Maltz. But vocal instructor and conservatory director Julie Rowe introduced her to classical music. ÂNow coming back for ÂOklahoma!Â and having to sort of rein that voice in and tone it down a little bit, itÂs been a little challenging, but Rodgers & Ham-mersteinÂs music is such a classic. ItÂs beautiful to sing, but there is a lot of technique behind it, so thatÂs been a little challenging to shift gears,ÂŽ Miss Woodard said. But the character of Laurey presents a series of challenges all her own. Laurey is independent, and runs her own farm. ÂShe works on the farm. She does lots of physical work and labor, and sheÂs very tough. SheÂs got this crush on Curly, but she tries to play coy and tries to lead him off. She flirts with him but then when he makes a m ove, she backs away. SheÂs a tough character to play because sheÂs got to be flirty but coy at the same time,ÂŽ Miss Woodard said. She is flirty and coy, and gets to wear the costumes of the day. ItÂs fun, she said.ÂIt does get a little hot, though, with all the undergarments they have to wear underneath. Some girls are wearing cor-sets,ÂŽ she said. Frontier life was not easy, and both actors are glad to live in the 21st century. ÂIt seems pretty tough,ÂŽ Mr. Carroll said. ÂI think with todayÂs luxuries that we have, I wouldnÂt be used to living back there,ÂŽ Miss Woodard said. Those costumes, and those songs, make for some magical moments onstage, especially for the performers. ÂMy favorite song is ÂThe Surrey with the Fringe on Top.Â But my favorite scene is with Jud in the smokehouse. My friend, he has Jud. WeÂve grown up together, so itÂs easy to get that scene,ÂŽ Mr. Carroll said. Jud, who works on LaureyÂs farm and is sweet on her, is at the center of much of the conflict of the show. Curly actually plots to kill Jud, his nemesis, and is thwarted by LaureyÂs Aunt Eller. But Laurey also has a pivotal scene with Jud. ÂMy favorite moment would be LaureyÂs confrontation with Jud where she fires him. ItÂs kind of cool to get angry and mad and push him around,ÂŽ Miss Woodard said. Each is an intense scene for the stars of this show, regardless of where they are performing. Indeed, it might be disappointing for these conservatory students that they do not get to do this performance on the Maltz stage Â„ the theater is in the midst of a major renovation of its lobby and upstairs area, where additional seat-ing, restrooms and offices are under construction. But it seems like they are taking things in stride. ÂItÂs pretty cool that I get to do it on my high school stage, so itÂs like IÂm going out with a bang, leaving my high school and I get to do my last show on that stage, so thatÂs pretty cool for me,ÂŽ Mr. Carroll said.

For those young singers, who range from third to 12th grade, it is an oppor-tunity to grow. ÂI think of our kids coming for an audition. TheyÂre nervous and scared. Sometimes theyÂre looking at their feet. We work with them and within a year theyÂre singing from the stage of the Kravis Center,ÂŽ Ms. Clark said. ÂWe really believe our mission is to trans-form their lives.ÂŽ And teach them a thing or two about working with others. ÂThey learn about being part of a great team and being respectful of others. They have to sit up straight, have to pay attention,ÂŽ she said. ÂThose skills lead to a better life and weÂre doing it through the gift of music.ÂŽ Hundreds of children have gone through the ranks of the Young Singers over the past decade. ÂThereÂs a lot of joy that comes from that,ÂŽ said Mr. Berry, founder and artis-tic director of the group, which had fairly humble beginnings a decade ago. He said 25 kids attend the groupÂs first auditions; they launched the choir with 75 singers. Mr. Berry, a longtime Palm Beach County arts educator, saw a need. ÂThere was nothing like it back then. There was no com-munity choir in Palm Beach County. The nearest was the Singing Sons in Fort Lauderdale,ÂŽ he said, referring to FloridaÂs Singing Sons Boys Choir. Mr. Berry taught music for many years at Bak Middle School of the Arts. ÂHonestly, some of our students came to us and mentioned that they would like to continue to sing together. They were going on to high schools,ÂŽ he said. From an ensemble of 75, the group grew rapidly. ÂWe started at a church. We were there about four months then outgrew it and we went to the Kravis Center,ÂŽ he said. The rest is history. The elegant Dreyfoos Hall is a huge space, and seats 2,200 people. ItÂs a perfect venue for the chorus, which will premiere ÂUbuntu,ÂŽ a work by composer Mark Hayes. Also on the bill: ÂUntraveled World,ÂŽ by Paul How-ley, an English-born composer who now lives in Nova Scotia. Taken from a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, ÂItÂs about adventure, never stopping,ÂŽ Mr. Berry said. The chorus has toured worldwide, playing in Salzburg and at Lincoln Cen-ter, among other venues. Still, playing the Kravis Center can be challenging for these young artists and their leaders. ÂItÂs still a little intimidating, but I just always get a high from it. For me, conducting choirs takes me to that ethe-real place. ItÂs hard to explain. Once you get over that intimidation because there are a lot of people there, more than anything itÂs just an excitement to present to parents and grandparents and patrons these kids and what theyÂve worked on and what they can do musi-cally,ÂŽ Mr. Berry said. The magic of the music certainly inspires those young voices. ÂOh, God. I love it so much. This is my sixth year. It will be my 12th concert coming up in a couple of weeks, and I just love it so much. ItÂs just so great. IÂve just always loved to sing and the fact that I get to come and sing with all of my friends IÂve made over all the years, and thatÂs sometimes more than once a week. Âƒ I just love it,ÂŽ said Lillian Lesser, who turns 16 this month and is a sophomore at The Benjamin School. Lillian, a soprano, said her voice has evolved since she joined the chorus. ÂSince I joined Young Singers, my voice definitely has become more refined,ÂŽ she said. She studies privately with a voice teacher and has been learning music theory. She counts Regina Spektor, Christina Perry and Avril Lavigne among her influences. She plays ukulele and is learning guitar. She is fluent in Hebrew, semi-fluent in Spanish and is studying Mandarin. She will spend six weeks in Israel this summer doing community service with the North American Federation for Temple Youth, but will return next fall to perform with the Young Singers. ÂI couldnÂt imagine myself anywhere else,ÂŽ she said. The same could be said of Noah Gunn, 14, of Tequesta. ÂI just love singing,ÂŽ he said.An eighth-grader at Bak, Noah will start high school next year at Dreyfoos School of the Arts. He has been per-forming with Young Singers for four years, and says the lessons learned go beyond the music. Through Young Singers, he has been Âgetting to know people and getting people skills and knowing how to communicate and talk and gaining a stage presence when youÂre onstage,ÂŽ he said. And his instructors?ÂOh, theyÂre great, actually. TheyÂre very, very organized, very convenient, very responsible. TheyÂre great teach-ers, which is kind of important, also,ÂŽ Noah said. He was nervous the first time he stepped out onstage, but said he feels much more comfortable now, and the work with Young Singers even helped him with the interview and audition process at Dreyfoos. It is that grounding in technique that draws singers like sisters Anabel and Lindsay Llende. The girls, who live in Jupiter, moved to the area last year and joined Young Singers. Anabel, 12, attends Jupiter Middle; Lindsay, 14, attends Jupiter High School. Both girls sang with choruses near their former home in the Chicago sub-urbs. ÂWhen we found out we were relocating here, one of the very first things that I did was find out where could the kids could sing because the choir had such a tremendous impact on them,ÂŽ said their mom, Sue Llende. The transition was smooth. ÂThey both came in, auditioned. They welcomed them in. It was a very similar choir and they were happy with the level they were at,ÂŽ Mrs. Llende said. Lindsay started singing when she was in first grade; Anabel started in fourth grade. Both girls enjoy reading and language arts, and next year both girls will be in their school choirs. Anabel had auditioned for ÂAnnieÂŽ and Lindsay auditioned for ÂThrough the Looking GlassÂŽ dur-ing the Maltz Jupi-ter TheatreÂs recent First Step to Star-dom. Both received call-backs and both will return for the theaterÂs next round of auditions. As for the Young SingersÂ concert, Anabel was excited about singing the song ÂFireflies,ÂŽ which she promises will have a surprise for the audience. Lind-say was looking forward to ÂUntraveled World.ÂŽ ÂItÂs really cool. ItÂs all mixed parts. ThatÂs going to be amazing,ÂŽ she said. Lindsay also plays piano, violin and cello. ÂAnd I play piano, kind of, and French horn,ÂŽ Anabel said. That musicianship prepares the girls for this concert, for which literally hun-dr eds of you th are practicing in adjoining rooms on the second floor of the Kravis Center. Dozens of parents are shuttling children from room to room and group to group. It showcases the spirit of ÂUbuntu,ÂŽ the centerpiece composition of the concert. ÂUbuntuÂŽ is a South African concept illustrating the connectivity of human-ity, according to the Young Singers. And a visitor can see that first-hand upstairs at the Kravis Center. ÂItÂs amazing. Today, IÂm helping out in the choir room and I just helped accompany them when they sing. ItÂs amazing the kind of music they can pro-duce. I mean, Shawn was leading it, and with the music sheet and the direction with his hand, it is just where you go, oh, my gosh, amazing,ÂŽ said Mrs. Llende. ÂAnd this was just them in casual attire in the music room.ÂŽ She expanded on that thought in a later email: ÂThey bring the songs to life and fill them with emotion. It is a true testament to the dedication and motiva-tion of the singers, the directors and the staff of the Young Singers.ÂŽ To the untrained ear, those children are generating pure magic in the rehearsal hall. But for Young SingersÂ founder and artistic director, Mr. Berry, it all comes together when he walks out on that stage and hears those first notes. ÂThe reality is once you get out there, you all settle down and itÂs a wonderful, wonderful feeling.ÂŽ Q SINGERSFrom page 23 FLORIDA WEEKLY PHOTO D.

Q Â„ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Omelets, burgers, and UEPs are just a few of the items that Don Ganim and his wife, Mary Ann, offer at the Juno Beach Cafe. You may be wondering, what is a UEP? Mr. Ganim explains that it stands for Uncle EddieÂs Pancakes, which not only consists of a secret recipe, but is also what sparked Mr. GanimÂs interest in the industry. Mr. GanimÂs Uncle Eddie owned eight pancake houses throughout Montana that offered the famous pancakes that people raved about. Mr. Ganim says that he worked at the restaurants as a little boy, but never knew what the recipe for the pancakes entailed. ÂUncle Eddie had the dynamite,ÂŽ says Mr. Ganim. ÂHe would make the pancake batter and then mix the dynamite, the secret ingredi-ents, into the batter.ÂŽ Furthering his knowledge and experience within the industry, Mr. Ganim attended Michigan State, where he majored in hotel and res-taurant management. Though Mr. Ganim worked for companies such as Ponderosa Steakhouse and Brown Derby Restaurants, he says his passion was with Uncle EddieÂs restaurant concept Â„ the one he had grown up with. In 1989, Mr. Ganim and his wife moved to Key Largo, where the ÂdynamiteÂŽ ingredients for the pan-cake batter were finally revealed. The couple opened three locations of GanimÂs Kountry Kitchen with Mr. GanimÂs brother, Lee, and wife Roseann. After moving the restaurant to Juno Beach in 1998, the name of the restaurant may have changed to the Juno Beach Cafe, but the UEPs have stayed the same. The couple has three daughters who also grew up working in the restaurants, earning the nicknames of Âtoasties.ÂŽ Now, they like to hire high school students as Âtoasties.ÂŽ ÂDon really takes his time to teach the kids proper work ethics,ÂŽ Mrs. Ganim says. ÂItÂs so gratifying to have the high school students here.ÂŽ With the restaurantÂs tropical theme and being located only minutes from the beach, the GanimsÂ Juno Beach Cafe is a relaxing and community-driven atmo-sphere. The Ganims say they try to make it a local favorite. ÂOur locals are our bread and b utter, our snowbirds are the gravy. If it wasnÂt for our locals, then we couldnÂt make it during the summer months. God has blessed us with some of the most loyal customers.ÂŽ Name: Don Ganim Age: 69 Original Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio Restaurant: Juno Beach Cafe, 13967 U.S. Highway 1, Juno Beach; open 7 days, Mon.-Fri., 7 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 7 a.m.-2 p.m.; 622-1533 Mission: ÂOur mission is to serve good food in a friendly, clean, and happy environment; to be able to employ people with a fair wage; to be a part of the community and good stewards of the gifts that God has given us.ÂŽ Cuisine: American fare focusing on breakfast, lunch and brunch.

Hello, Kabuki: Asian-tapas restaurant and bar Kabuki is one of the most popular spots on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. So is its neigh-bor to the east, RoccoÂs Tacos. RoccoÂs added a location at PGA Commons more than a year ago and the crowds have not stopped com-ing. Kabuki is following suit, moving into the spot once occupied by Sushi Jo, which moved to Juno Beach. Look for such Japanese fare as sushi, as well as dishes inspired by Thailand, China and other parts of Asia. It is now open and will have a grand opening May 23. ItÂs at 5080 PGA Blvd., Suite 105, Palm Beach Gardens. 776-8778 or www.kabukiwpb.com. New Italian spot in Crystal Tree: The north corner of Crystal Tree Plaza seems to attract Italian fare. For many years, Chef Vittorio Lanni created food with Neapolitan flair. Roy Villacrusis created his ver-sion of Asian street fare there with Kubo, but the space later was home to Chef Giordy TonelliÂs La Scaletta. La Scaletta has closed and the spot now is home to La Fontana Pizzeria i Ristorante. Elmaz Tahirovic, one of the owners of the restaurant, said he used to own Pizza Stop Pasta on Village Boule-vard in West Palm Beach. But unlike the former loca-tion, La Fontana will offer a full liquor bar as well as indoor and outdoor dining, takeout and delivery. And according to the restaurantÂs Facebook page, it also will offer such Balkan fare as cevapi, burek and goulash. La Fontana, which has opened, will have a grand opening on May 18. ItÂs at Crystal Tree Plaza, 1201 U.S. Highway 1, Suite 38, North Palm Beach; 408-3295. Bobbi Sue closes: The food at Cleve MashÂs Bobbi Sue BBQ was well received, but he never won the cus-tomer support he had hoped for at night at the down-town West Palm Beach eatery. Mr. Mash will stay involved with the space.ÂA group that is buying me out that wants me to oversee the management of it. TheyÂre going to con-vert it to an Irish pub,ÂŽ he said. The investors are Irish and plan a gastropub menu. Mr. Mash, who also owns Dirty Martini at Downtown at the Gardens, is working on a new concept for the former Club Safari at the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott. J.R.Âs Buck Wild Country Bar is set to open in mid-June. The Bobbi Sue fare is not gone forever. Look for a Bobbi Sue BBQ Food Truck to be at special events. Q Food and wine, comings and goingsGANIM SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFruit-filled tomato plants, beans and stalky sunflowers are putting the ÂgardenÂŽ in kindergarten at the Lone Pine Elementary school in Palm Beach Gardens. ThatÂs where teacher Thomas Hawkins sprouted a plan to bring a vegetable garden to the school grounds. With a little research and help from Change Matters, a non-profit that sets up community and school gardens, and Burger Fi, a Palm Beach County-based burger chain, Mr. Hawkins and the stu-dents of Lone Pine planted a dozen plots on the west side of the school grounds. A group of hydroponic planting tow-ers, plants set in pots growing in a medium of coco fiber and watered from a rain barrel irrigation system, is teaching students and adults how little space is needed for harvesting food. In the ground in traditional plots, green onions, radishes, tomatoes, green beans and the ever-popular sun-flowers are beginning to show the summer heatÂs wilt, but it didnÂt dampen the enthusiasm for the project. The garden was dedicated last week at the school. Jamie Frankel of Change Matters told the assembly, ÂThis is the biggest and most well maintained garden weÂve done. IÂm so proud of you.ÂŽ This is the organizationÂs fourth project, according to Wendy Schultz, a Change Matters partner. Others include Spady Elementary in Delray Beach and the Girls and Boys Club. The garden cost about $1,100 to plant; fundraising at Burger Fi raised $5,200. The profits, given to the school, will go back into the garden. Ms. Schultz said the neatly boxed off plots will be maintained through the summer, with students in the afterschool program working in it. ÂIn August, theyÂll start solarizing (sun-baking) the soil and replant again in September,ÂŽ she said. Plans are to expand it, taking up more grounds north of the current plantings. Steve Lieber, one of the partners from Burger Fi, said itÂs the first garden entirely built with Burger Fi funding. The fast-growing burger chain, which just opened its 20th store, is expanding into Palm Beach Gardens and wants to give back to the communities where it appears, he said. ÂWe are all about a natural burger and want the kids to know where their food comes from.ÂŽ Q Â„ Jan Norris, email@example.com School, Burger Fi teach kids about how food grows JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Thomas Hawkins, teacher at Lone Pine who started the garden project, stands with vertical plant towers where vegetables are growing hydro-ponically.
