V A famly of elephants at The National Elephant Center in Fellsmere.TUCKED AWAY IN RURAL FELLSMERE, Fla., on a 225-acre parcel of land off an unpaved road, birds soar and swoop over grassy knolls dotted with palm trees. From inside this slice of Indian River County emerges a large, bluish-gray mass of lumbering animals. A few moments later, four African elephants come into focus. The mammoth mam-mals shuffle about, waving their trunks along the orange trees and plucking the sweet, round fruit. The herd pays not much attention to a small group of onlookers and con-tinues munching on the citrus, seem-ingly enjoying their new home at the National Elephant Center, a nonprofit organization that provides permanent and temporary residency for elephants.

There was no breeze to speak of from across the Intracoastal Waterway, the humidity was high and the temperature still was above 80. But it was a good night for exercising, so a friend and I walked along the West Palm Beach waterfront taking in the view of Palm Beach and admiring the houses of the tony neighborhood south of South-ern Boulevard that has been nicknamed So-So.Ž Then a car slowed, the window came down and the passenger shouted, Hey, faggots!Ž A stop like that could lead to a beating or worse; fortunately, the car sped off. And like that, I was transported more than 30 years back to high school in Fort Myers. The memories go something like this:Algebra class began and the first spitball hit. Mr. Gilmore turned to the board and began to write a problem out on the board. Zing! And other.Someone hissed, Faggot!ŽMr. Gilmore turned around, gave the class a look and continued writing. Another spitball and class continued.It was 1977 and these were the honor students. Riverdale High was the easternmost high school in Lee County, and served a predominantly rural community. It could be a tough crowd.No Latin class here, and humanities courses were cut to make way for a remedial writing class. Books and arts were frowned upon by many of the students. So were people who were different.Even then, I was the geeky kid. I was shy and slightly chubby, and the thick aviator glasses I wore let everyone know I took things per-haps a little too seriously. Kids could be cruel and they fed on that. Take the time a girl walked up to me and shouted, Hey, fag-boy.Ž She grabbed my books and tossed them into a ditch. The stack sank to the bottom of the mire. It almost was pointless to retrieve them, as the crowd shout-ed, Faggot! Faggot! Faggot!Ž over and over. The books were ruined, and at the end of the year, Mr. Gilmore looked at the algebra book, its cover warped and its pages stuck together, and said, I really should charge you for this...Ž He didnt. The torment continued, though it eased somewhat; even senior year could be a bumpy bus ride as kids shouted a chorus of Scott! Faggot! Scott! Faggot!Ž all the way home. Grandma had said to counter the tormenters by telling them they didnt know what the word meant. I tried it, but one boy gave a very graphic definition of the word, and a visit to the dictionary proved him to be somewhat accurate. Thirty-five years later, a little perspective helps. Florida was a simpler place. Local folks could be simpler, too. They were nave, and tended to see things in strict hues of black and white. Taupe and gray were elusive, and forget all about the folks who possibly followed a rainbow. Fort Myers still had a small-town feel three decades ago, but was well on its way to becoming the hub that it is today. West Palm Beach was the big city for us „ heck, it had a mall with two major department stores „ but civilization largely ended at Military Trail. The land along U.S. 441 and beyond was horse, cattle and farm country that gave way to the sugarcane fields of the Glades. State Road 80 cut through a vast emptiness that ended at the Orange River in Fort Myers. Thirty-five years later, southern Florida feels all grown up. But somehow it feels tragic that youth feel the need to belittle folks because of sexual orientation or race, especially in a free, educated society. Faggot. The word contains two painful syllables. Replace it with any racial slur and the hurt is still the same. As Pride Day „ traditionally the last Saturday in June „ approaches, its important to remember that were all in this together, straight or gay. It is part of the diversity that makes our nation great, and it reminds us that bigotry dimin-ishes us all.

The committee charged with putting to paper the reasons the Continental Congress had resolved to declare inde-pendence from Britain turned to Thomas Jefferson to do its drafting. If the reasons for that choice werent particularly pro-found „ Jeffersons talents as a writer were widely recognized, and no one thought the declaration as important as other pressing revolutionary business „ its consequences assuredly were. Jeffersons work of a few days was for the ages. John Adams had handed the writing over to the Virginian while he led the floor debate over independence „ and came to regret the missed oppor-tunity for glory. But Jeffersons words were more than rhetorical theatrics; they laid the philosophical bedrock of the American republic. In the space of three mag-nificent sentences in its preamble, the declaration packs enough content to fill volumes of treatises on political theory. In declaring that all men are created equal,Ž it insists that theres no such thing as a natural ruling class. Put another way, it tells us, as Jefferson wrote near the end of his life, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately by the grace of God.Ž In spelling out our unalienable rightŽ to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happi-ness,Ž it anchors our very humanity in the right to self-determination. Jefferson amended the traditional trinity of life, liberty, and propertyŽ by inserting the pursuit of happiness in recognition that property is only a means to that larger end. What is important is the colonists liberty to do what they believe neces-sary and useful with their lives,Ž histo-rian Robert Webking writes. In saying that governments are instituted among menŽ in order to secure these rights,Ž it grounds the authority of government in the protection of our freedom. Finally, in stipulating that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it,Ž it asserts the right to revolution. The rest of the document details the long train of abuses by the British government that justifies the colonists assertion of this right. All of this was a direct steal from the natural-rights philosophy of John Locke. These Lockean premises were so widely accepted among revolutionary leaders that the preamble „ which has never lost its power to awe and to command the readers assent „ was adopted by the Continental Congress with nary a peep of protest. Neither aiming at originality of principles or sentiments,Ž Jefferson later wrote of the declaration, it was intended to be an expression of the American mind.Ž All honor to Jefferson,Ž Lincoln once proclaimed, to the man who, in the con-crete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, and so to embalm it there, that today and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling block to the very harbingers of reappearing tyranny and oppression.Ž Amen. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Dead man walking, 20 years onThirty years ago, a Catholic nun working in a poor neighborhood of New Orleans was asked if she would be a pen pal to a death-row prisoner. Sister Helen Prejean agreed, forever changing her life, as well as the debate on capital punishment in this country. Her experiences inspired her first book, Dead Man Walking: An Eyewit-ness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States,Ž which has just been republished on its 20th anniversary. She was a pen pal with Patrick Sonnier, a convicted murderer on death row in Louisianas notorious Angola prison. In her distinctive Southern accent, she told me of her first visit to Sonnier: It was scary as all get-out. I had never been in a prison before. ... I was scared to meet him personally. When I saw his face, it was so human, it blew me away. I got a realization then, no matter what he had done ... he is worth more than the worst thing he ever did. And the journey began from there.Ž Sister Helen became Sonniers spiritual adviser, conversing with him as his execution approached. She spent his final hours with him, and witnessed his execution on April 5, 1984. She also was a spiritual advisor to another Angola death row prisoner, Robert Lee Willie, who was executed the same year. The book was made into a film, directed by Tim Robbins and starring Susan Saran-don as Prejean and Sean Penn as the character Matthew Poncelet, an amal-gam of Sonnier and Williams. Sarandon won the Oscar for Best Actress, and the films success further intensified the national debate on the death penalty. The United States is the only industrialized country in the world still using the death penalty. There are currently 3,125 people on death row in the U.S., although death-penalty opponents con-tinue to make progress. Maryland is the most recent state to abolish capital punishment. After passage of the law, Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley wrote: Evidence shows that the death penalty is not a deterrent, it cannot be admin-istered without racial bias, and it costs three times as much as life in prison without parole. Whats more, there is no way to reverse a mistake if an innocent person is put to death.Ž Studies of the racial bias abound. The Death Penalty Information Center, citing a recent Louisiana Law Review study, reports that in Louisiana, the odds of a death sentence were 97 per-cent higher for crimes in which the victim was white than those where the victim was African-American. Nation-ally, 75 percent of the cases that resulted in an execution had white victims.Although Colorado is not one of the states to abolish the death penalty, Gov. John Hickenlooper used his executive authority to grant a temporary reprieve to one of the three death-row prisoners there, saying, It is a legitimate question whether we as a state should be taking lives.ŽThis week, Indiana released a former death-row prisoner. Paula Cooper was convicted for the 1985 murder of Ruth Pelke. Cooper was sentenced to death at the age of 16, and was, at the time, the youngest person on death row in this country. Pelkes grandson, Bill Pelke, actively campaigned for clemency for her: I became convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my grand-mother would have been appalled by the fact that this girl was on death row and there was so much hate and anger towards her.Ž He went on, When Paula was taken off of death row in the fall of 1989, I thought, Well, thats it. Shes off of death row. My mission has been accomplished. Nevertheless, Pelke joined a march from Floridas death-row prison to Atlanta, on which he met Sister Helen Prejean. After 17 days of walking down the highways with this nun, you get a real education about the death penalty. It was on that march with Sister Helen Prejean where I dedicated my life to the abolition of the death penalty,Ž he said. As long as theres any state in this world thats killing their own citizens, Im going to stand up and say that its wrong.Ž Prejean said one of her greatest regrets was that she failed to reach out to the families of the murder victims while she was spiritual adviser to Son-nier and Willie. She went on to found Survive, an organization to support fam-ilies of murder victims like Pelke. She wrapped up our conversation this week by saying: Ive accompanied six human beings and watched them be killed. I have a dedication to them to do this; I cant walk away from this. Im going to be doing this until I die.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 27-JULY 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESPet-safe on the Fourth of JulyPrepare now for the most dangerous holiday for companion animals BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickI love the Fourth of July. I love the picnics and parades, and especially the fireworks. But I love my pets, too, so I usually stay home. My cats live indoors, so I dont worry about them running off in fear, and my backyard is double-fenced, so I dont worry about my dogs bolting when let outside, either. But I know I would spend the evening worrying if I left them alone, and with good reason: Pet-advocacy groups warn that more pets are lost or killed, injured or panicked on this day than on any other. Even if your pet is not the nervous type, it is a good idea to think twice before heading out the evening of July 4, or at least to take some precautions. Here are some tips:Q Line up some chemical calm. If you know your pet looks for a place to hide and shiver at the neighborhoods first noise, call your veterinarian in advance to get a medication to keep him calm. While you are at it, ask if your vet is available for after-hours emergencies, and if not, get the location and phone number of the nearest emergency clinic. You never know if you will need it. One usually calm dog I know jumped through a sliding-glass door after firecrackers went off in the yard behind him. Fortunately, his owners knew where to take him, and he got the prompt care he needed to save his life.Q Set up a safe room. For truly terrified pets, its not a bad idea to secure them in a quiet room, or a crate if theyre used to one. Synthetic pheromone sprays „ Feliway for cats, Adaptil for dogs, both available at pet stores „ mimic the natural substances that calm anxious pets, and help many pets over the rough spots. Clothing that hugsŽ your pet, such as Thundershirts, has also been shown to help. And many people have used the homeopathic Rescue Remedy on their pets; a few drops in drinking water may help. Q Keep your pets secure. Make sure all your pets are safely confined and provided with plenty of fresh, cool water (nervous animals drink lots of water). Bring outside pets inside, at least into the garage. Allow your cat no access to the outside, and be sure to keep your dog on a leash outside, even in your own yard if youre not sure about your fenc-ing. Frightened dogs have been known to go over „ or even through „ fences that would nor-mally hold them. And cats are often the targets of cruel prank-sters, some of whom enjoy ter-rorizing animals with fireworks.Q Prepare for the worst. Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with ID tags. When animal-con-trol agencies are closed, theres no way for your pet to be traced to you unless you have made sure your phone number is also on that collar. And if you dont have time to get your pet microchipped, get it done before next years fireworks. Q Know what to do if you lose your pet. Start looking as soon as you discover your pet is missing. Cover your neighborhood with fliers and check with veterinarians, emergency clinics and shelters. When deal-ing with shelters, remember that a phone call is not enough. Shelter staff cannot remember every animal in the place, and may not be able to recognize your pet from your description even if they have seen it. It is important to check in person at least every other day. With so much to worry about, I feel a lot better staying home. Besides, I live close enough to my citys fireworks show that I can get a pretty good view without leaving my pets alone. Q Leave your party animal at home, and stay with him if you can. The Fourth of July is a risky day for cats and dogs. >> Aime is a 2-year-old spayed American Bulldog. She weighs 42 pounds and had a very rough time growing up.

The four African elephants from Disney World are mak-ing themselves at home, says Executive Director John Lehnhardt. Plans are for the center to accommodate Asian elephants as well. The National Elephant Center is the dream child of Mr. Lehnhardt and other wildlife advocates who comprise the board of directors. Approximately 75 zoos around the country have contrib-uted financially and in other ways to bring the dream to fruition. All accred-ited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the supporting zoos have elephants themselves and expect some-day to benefit from the existence of the center. Its a support system for zoos,Ž Mr. Lehnhardt says. Zoos that have elephants trumpet the National Elephant Center as a godsend. This is something the zoo community has needed for a long time,Ž says Tony Vecchio, executive director of the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens. Its espe-cially exciting to see it happening right here in Florida.Ž The vast acreage „ being leased to the center by an orange grove owner for $1 a year for 40 years „ is vital for keeping male or bull elephants, mostly solitary creatures who need room to roam. At capacity, the center could house 45 elephants. It cost $2.4 million to get the 25-acre first phase up and running; four subse-quent phases totaling an additional $2.4 million will depend on private and cor-porate donations and fundraisers. The master site plan calls for four open-air barns for daily caretaking, health checks and veterinary proce-dures, a keeper center, conservation/education center, elephant overlooks, a pavilion and varied yards for flexibility. Ultimately, the center might also have an observation tower and an education center for school groups and other visi-tors to learn about elephants. The grounds are designed to ensure the elephants security and safety and to enable them to roam free, forage and socialize with their families and herds. Mr. Lehnhardt and his staff of caretak-ers work to keep the elephants healthy and comfortable in their tropical sur-roundings. Chief Operations Officer Jeff Bolling and his staff work to minimize human interaction with the animals so that they can form and cultivate their own social groups. Our goal is for them to be elephants,Ž Mr. Lehnhadt says.Meet the elephantsThe first four pachyderm residents at the new center are a family made up of Thandi, the matriarch at 33 years old; Moyo, 32; and her male calves, Tufani, 10, and Tsavo, 5. The daily routine in their new digs starts with morning baths, care checkups and breakfast. Fed a diet of grain, hay and supplements, the elephants eat several hun-dred pounds of food a day. Tufanis big hazel eyes are aglitter as he spots his breakfast being delivered. As it does for most teenagers, room service seems to agree very much with him. As a young and growing elephant, Tufani likes to eat, play with his broth-er, roll in the mud and knock over trees. And of course, theres his budding love life. Hes a preteen,Ž Mr. Lehnhardt says. Hes very interested in the opposite sex.Ž Tufani raises his trunk while handlers bathe him with a gentle spray of water. His emerging maturity has not gone unnoticed within his family. He is beginning to get asked in elephant ELEPHANTSFrom page 1FLORIDA WEEKLY AND COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: A famly of elephants at The National Elephant Center in Fellsmere.

While Tufani, guided by the handlers, moves in different angles to get his bath, a barrier remains between him and the staff at all times. Hes not a pet,Ž Mr. Lenhardt says. You cant get too close.Ž Besides their own safety, theres another reason the handlers dont get too close: They want the elephants to focus on one another, not on people. Were not part of their social group,Ž Mr. Lehnhardt explains. Elephants can live into their 60s and beyond, which means most of the pachyderms who come to the National Elephant Center will spend many years in residence there. Staff, on the other hand, will no doubt change over the years, and if they were encouraged to interact and bond with the elephants, such changes could affect the animals. On a recent day, one could spot the elephant family noshing on palm fronds, branches and oranges remaining in the citrus groves. The oranges are a new phenomenon for the elephants. With their large gray trunks, they suction oranges from the trees. It like a kid in the candy store,Ž Mr. Lehnhardt said. Aside from a big appetite, elephants have even bigger brains that need to be enriched. Mr. Lehnhardt, the staff and Elephant Center board work to make sure that the sensitive, bright and socially aware creatures have what they need to thrive. Right now that support comes in letting the elephants get to know their new home and become comfortable in it.Maintaining the populationA main component of the National Elephant Centers mission is to ensure a future elephant population. For several decades, elephant numbers have dwin-dled. The African elephant is consid-ered vulnerable and the Asian endan-gered, according to www.LiveScience.com. The animals are living in areas of dense human population. Their habitat is being encroached upon, and their lives are also being taken for their ivory tusks. Both Asian and African elephants are being persecuted,Ž says Rick Bar-ongi, director of the Houston Zoo and a board member for the National Ele-phant Center. The center will be able to able contribute to maintaining elephants in the future,Ž Mr. Barongi says. I think thats so important.Ž Future breeding opportunities coupled with an education center and access for school children are what cen-ter staff and board members trumpet as the keys to the centers success. The vast majority of Americans will not be able to see elephants in their habitats,Ž Mr. Barongi says. It (the cen-ter) will inspire all people, especially children, to care more about elephants. And if they care more about elephants, they will try to help them.Ž Although the center houses elephants, it is not a sanctuary. A sanctu-ary keeps animals permanently and has core standards that emphasize no active breeding and no commercial trade. Nor are they generally not open to the pub-lic, says Jackie Bennett, deputy director for the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.Helping Fellsmere tooBefore The National Elephant Center came to town, the residents of Fells-mere didnt have much reason to think about the 225 acres of orange groves the nonprofit now leases. But the new center holds the potential to make a difference in the lives of the citys 5,300 residents. The towns Frog Leg Festival every January used to be the biggest show in town. But with a herd of elephants in the neighborhood, now the people of Fellsmere can expect some new atten-tion. Were very excited about it,Ž says City Manager Jason Nunemaker. It just puts us on the map.Ž Mr. Nunemaker expects the center will create opportunities and draw tourists when it is complete. He also envisions greater prosperity being generated from visiting trainers who will use City Hall as a place to work and hold meetings. I think its a huge resource on a variety of levels,Ž he says. But perhaps the most tangible benefit will be for Fellsmeres youngest resi-dents. The areas children are going to have a chance to take school trips to see and experience the elephants. Were excited,Ž says Fellsmere Elementary School Principal Ramon Echeverria. Its unique. Its going to be a plus from an educational aspect.Ž For many Fellsmere youngsters, it could be their first chance to see a real elephant. Theyre excited,Ž Mr. Echeverria adds. These kids are off the chain.Ž The idea of reaching children seems to matter most in procuring a future for the elephants. I think its going to have the biggest benefit for school kids,Ž Mr. Barongi says. Those kids will be in awe. It will influence them to care.Ž He and Mr. Lehnhardt, along with everyone who has worked to make the new center a reality, know that engen-dering compassion is the must-have ingredient in order to ensure that the National Elephant Center and simi-lar places have a reason to exist and serve. Q Elephant facts>> Height: Five to 14 feet at shoulders (males); females of all subspecies are smaller than males. >> Length: Up to 30 feet trunk to tail. >> Weight: 6,000-15,000 pounds. >> Lifespan: Up to 70 years. >> Diet: Grasses, leaves, bamboo, bark, roots. Elephants are also known to eat crops like banana and sugarcane. Adult elephants eat 300-400 pounds of food per day. >> Range: African forest elephants inhabit the dense rainforests of west and central Africa. The Asian elephant is found in India, Sri Lanka, China and much of Southeast Asia. >> Behavior: Elephants form deep family bonds and live in tight matriarchal family groups of related females called a herd. The oldest and often largest female in the herd, called a matriarch, leads the herd. Herds consist of eight to 100 elephants depending on terrain and family size. When a calf is born, it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd. Males leave the family between the ages of 12-15 and may lead solitary lives or live temporarily with other males. >> Communication: Recent discoveries have shown that elephants can commu-nicate over long distances by producing a sub-sonic rumble that can travel over the ground faster than sound through air. Other elephants receive the messages through the sensitive skin on their feet and trunks. — Source: www.defenders.orgTo help:>> The National Elephant Center is nonpro t and is accepting donations.

ROONEYS OLD IRISH ALE SPECIAL $3.50 (7/4-7/7) Names (and prices) are subject to change The names of antiques sometimes change as research corrects old errors. In the 1930s, an auction house sold a pair of what were called LowestoftŽ vases that were large enough to put on a fireplace mantel. They were named after the Eng-lish town where they were thought to have been made in the 18th century. The vases had a traditional Chinese shape and were made of bluish-white porcelain decorated with a blue, green and orange coat of arms and slightly raised white scrolls. When the same vases were sold again in the 1950s, they were described as Chinese export porcelainŽ because experts had learned that in the mid-1700s the Lowestoft factory was making early blue-and-white English Delft souvenirs of regional interest, not porcelain like the vases. Researchers also had learned that porcelain made in China in the 18th cen-tury was being exported to England and that some had made its way to Lowestoft. But the Chinese porcelain exported to the West back then, although very good, was not the top-quality porcelain made in China for wealthy Chinese families. Some of the export pieces were plain, Chinese porcelain with added new deco-rations like coats-of-arms or pictures of ships. But there were also other problems with the pair of vases. The vases were not Chinese at all; they actually were copies made by Jacob Petit (1796-1868), who opened a shop in Paris in 1863. Painted raised white scrolls are the clue to identifying Petits copies of Chinese export porcelain. Petit also made copies of Sevres, Meissen, English dinnerware and more. So be careful when looking for information about Chinese export or Lowestoft porcelain. Information in old books is not accurate. And often, information online is from old books. Present-day auction-house descriptions and information in recent publications usually are accurate. Jacob Petit copies of Chinese export porcelain are collected today. A single one of his vases is worth about $800.Q: My mother would like to know what her bound volume of Frank Leslies Illustrated NewspaperŽ is worth. The spine is marked Vol. 1,Ž and the book includes issues dated from Dec. 15, 1855, to May 31, 1856. The newspaper pages are large, about 12 by 16 inches.A: Bound volumes of Frank Leslies illustrated weekly, the first one published in the United States, often show up at shows and can be found for sale online. Leslie (1821-1880) was born in England and immigrated to the United States in 1848. He was an engraver and illustrator before he became a publisher, and his many publications are wanted by collec-tors not only for their historical value, but also for their wood engravings and early photographs. The price your vol-ume could sell for depends on condition of the binding and of the newspapers themselves. We have seen early volumes sell for $50 to $200.Q: I have had an old table cigarette lighter for about 30 years. It was old when I got it. It appears to be silver-plate, but its heavy. Its in the shape of a cornu-copia, with the lighter at the top of the basket. Theres no mark on it. Can you identify and price it?A: The Evans Case Co. of North Attleborough, Mass., made an unmarked sil-ver-plated cornucopia table lighter like the one you describe. Evans was in busi-ness from 1922 to 1960, but table lighters were at their height of popularity in the 1930s and 40s. Thats probably when yours was made. Other silver-tone cor-nucopia table lighters were made in Japan after World War II, but theyre marked Made in Occupied Japan.Ž The irony is that both the Evans and Occupied Japan lighters sell for about $50 today.Q: My grandmother gave me her antique water basin, a very large pitcher and a smaller, matching water pitcher. She said the smaller pitcher was for hot water. The wash-basin set was given to her as a wedding gift in 1907. All three pieces are plain white. On the bottom, each piece is marked YaleŽ in gold on a banner. Since this set is a family heir-loom, it will not be sold, but I would like to know the history of the company.A: Wash sets like yours were used in the days before indoor plumbing. The large pitcher was used to pour water into the basin for washing, and the smaller pitcher was used when brushing teeth. The YaleŽ mark was one of several marks used between 1882 and 1925 by the Potters Co-Operative Co. of East Liver-pool, Ohio. The company made hotel ware, white ware and some decorated ware. The name of the company became Dresden Pottery Co. in 1925. It went out of business in 1927. Your set was made between 1882 and 1907.Tip: If you have stored a quilt, take it out twice a year and refold it „ in half, if you had it in thirds before. This practice will prevent crease lines.

I started doing this in high school and continued as a mentor to my team after I graduated. I went to college and I'm here now as a volunteer." „ Tytus Gerrish, Founder and CEO of ProtovationBY DEREK WATRALSpecial to Florida Weekly The robotics competition in question flies under the umbrella of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Sci-ence and Technology). Started in 1992, the program is the brainchild of Dean Kamen, popularly known as the inven-tor of the Segway, as well as water fil-ters for Third World countries, and air powered personnel launchers for SWAT teams. His idea was to expose students to concrete engineering challenges, while having professional volunteers educate and encourage them. This year's FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) event for high school students had about 54,000 high-school-aged individuals world-wide, organized into 2,700 teams, with the support of about 16,000 mentors and adult advisors and 3,000 corporate sponsors. "FIRST's mission is to change the way young people regard science and technology and to inspire appreciation for the real life rewards and career opportunities in these fields" (usfirst.org). FIRST offers a way for students to further their goals while having fun doing it. In this year's Ultimate Ascent challenge, the robots competed in a sort of Ultimate Frisbee game, scoring points by launching disks into goals at each end of a field 27-feet wide by 54-feet long. In the first 15 seconds of play, the robots had to be able to operate autono-mously, scoring as many goals as pos-sible without human interaction. For the remainder of the game, the robot was controlled by a skilled driver as well as a human player who loaded additional Frisbees to shoot into oppos-ing alliance goals. Finally came the "ascent" part of the game, in which the robots used mechanical ability to pull themselves up a pyramid of steel pipes, something akin to a robotic jungle gym, earning bonus points for each level climbed. Among the competitors was Team 179 „ Swamp Thing; Children of the Swamp „ which recently competed in the South Florida Regional at the Broward Convention Center. After the qualifying matches, the team was at eight wins and two losses ranking fifth of 46 teams. The most exciting match and flawless performance for Swamp Thing was their last qualifying match. After convincing wins in the quarterfi-nals, Swamp Thing went on to the semi-finals, where it lost in a hard-fought battle. The team did not come away empty-handed however, winning a tro-phy awarded by the judges for Industrial Design excellence, "that celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge." The robots are emblazoned with the corporate logos of the sponsors who give teams the wherewithal to trans-late ideas into functional robots. Team 179 Swamp Thing has an impressive cadre of people and companies that support the students. Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, EDF Inc., Florida Power and Light, Belcan, Lockheed Martin, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Nuclear Soci-ety, American Stairs, American Soci-ety of Mechanical Engineers, BTI Inc., Custom Machining, JC Penney, and 4H supply the team with mentors and the money to make it all happen. Senior team members are potentially eligible for more than $16 million in scholar-ship opportunities which are available to them through FIRST. Mentors play a vital role in the success of their students. Mentors work extensively with team members dur-ing the build season, designing, build-ing and fabricating a functional robot for competition. Their expertise is the catalyst for the teams and student's success. They come from a wide array of mechanical and electrical engineering backgrounds. Encountering these men-tors for the first time you are faced with a group of self-effacing and friendly people. After you get to know them, you are struck by how highly qualified they are and how freely they give their time and expertise. Team 179's mentors were Dan Quiggle, Chet Zientek, Jonathan Taylor, Bryan Phagan, Mark Gross, Mark Wall, Ryan Lefkofsky, Vince Forst, Joe Pipitone, Tytus Gerrish, Anthony Pipi-tone and Roy Bays. FIRST robotics provides a way for 21st century students to learn things they couldn't in school. They have access to professional engineers and specialized equipment such as plasma cutter s, industrial mills, lathes and 3D printers. They have sponsors who pro-vide them with materials. Mentors make a difference in the lives of the students both at the shop, and later perhaps as a career. FIRST allows students, mentors and sponsors to be part of something bigger than themselves. High school students, mentors, or sponsors who are interested in getting involved, should contact Chet Zientek at czientek@comcast.net.

The Information Not-So-SuperhighwayWe often refer to high-speed Internet as the information superhighway.Ž The term was popularized during the 90s to describe the digital and Internet com-munication systems and networks that are ubiquitous today. SuperhighwayŽ was an apt term. The road metaphor helped one imagine the modernity and scale of the industrial strength system required for virtual travel around the world via the new technologies. The term also raised the specter of the bil-lions in state and federal spending it would take, over a period of many years, to accomplish its construction. In the early 90s, the personal computer was a novelty appliance and the wonders of the Internet relatively nascent. To gin up support for pub-lic investment, advocates opined the information superhighway as the vir-tual chicken in every pot, envisioning it could link up everyone at home or office to everything else „ movies and television shows, shopping services, electronic mail and huge collections of data.Ž They proved to be mostly right. In the following decade, the world-wide web exploded; the genie was let loose; and its never going back into the bottle. The information superhighway isnt fixed in form like the numbing familiar-ity of asphalt highways. The infrastruc-ture continuously morphs. In two years, studies predict more people will be accessing the Internet using their tele-visions, cell phones, and cars than their laptops. The imagined, connected life has arrived. Yet beyond the aggrandize-ment of the Internet as a self-centric, pleasure island, many dream of a higher prize: The high-speed transfer of infor-mation has the power to provide uni-versal access to educational opportunity for all Americans, without regard to income or geographic location. This is the 21st Cen-tury version of the moon shot. The vision is to connect every library and school to the information super-highway and promote the nations digital lit-eracy through a national broadband network. Philanthropy is a devotee of this cause. A recent article in the New York Times featured com-mentary by Luis Ubinas, the President of the Ford Foundation. He wrote about Fords efforts to cre-ate greater access for all Americans to the information super-highway, investing nearly $45 million in grants to make the internet more accessible, affordable, and mindful of privacy.Ž His assessed the Ford initiative as not having been very successful; his scorecard tally? ƒhalf of all American dont have a smartphone, one-third lack a broad band connection, and one-fifth dont use the web at all.Ž He added that nineteen million Americans do not have high-speed internet access and millions more cannot afford it. His chastened outlook in the face of mixed results reinforces what many in philanthropy have long known. The charitable sector cannot alone solve problems that are in the national interest to resolve. According to Ubinas, as of 2009, only 63% of the 150,000 schools eligible for federal funding to subsidize the cost of Internet access were able to participate. Funding is woefully inad-equate. Without increased financial investment by all levels of government, efforts to achieve universal access for all Ameri-cans remain a glass half-empty. Ubinas concluded ƒ educational achievement, a healthy population, broad political participation, and eco-nomic opportunity for all „ factors that will drive a prosperous future for Americans, „ depends heavily on how well our nation will structure and man-age the expansion of the digital fron-tier to all.Ž He acknowledged this is a tall order. The digital infrastructure, once new, grows old again, the techno-logical equivalent of failing bridges and pockmarked, two-lane roads. Ubinas warns that the price the nation will pay for substandard access to the online worldŽ is an information underclass in danger of life-long marginalization in the pursuit of educational opportunity and jobs. The day the New York Times article appeared, the Palm Beach Post published a story about a free, webaccess plan rejected by the CRA Board in Boynton Beach. The deal breaker was that CRA funds couldnt be used for this purpose. The city wanted to make the Internet available to everyone, especially those in lower income areas of Boynton who could not afford internet access. The PBC Broadband Coalition made the proposal, a partnership of PBC government; the school district; Florida Atlantic University; Palm Beach State College; the PBC Education Commission; and the South Florida Water Management District. It was a disappointing o utcome. When it comes to calculating the cost of providing universal access to the information superhighway, it is clear: If we dont pay now, we are surely going to pay later.

As you age, these changes affect your memory. Short-term memory (what you had for breakfast) and remote memory (where you spent your childhood) usu-ally do not change. But recent memory (the name of someone you met recent-ly) may be affected by aging. To combat these minor memory gaps, try staying more organized. Keep lists, color code or label items, follow a routine and mark dates on a calendar. Remember to put important things, like keys, in the same place every time. Other things that can help refresh your memory include repeating someones name when you first meet them and remembering a location by relating it to a familiar landmark. Some memory loss, however, may have other causes, such as depression, thyroid disease, nutritional deficiencies, drug side-effects, stroke, head injury, alcoholism, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia. To evaluate memo-ry loss, your doctor may take a medical history, perform physical and neurologi-cal examinations, request blood or urine tests, or conduct brain imaging studies. Results are evaluated to determine if the cause of memory loss can be treated or is due to a more serious condition.People with MCI experience memory lapses and often struggle to perform self-care tasks, such as taking medications. They are able to function independently, but may need prompting to remember. Alzheimers disease is the main cause of dementia, a condition of increasing memory impairment that affects daily activities. More than 5 million Americans over the age of 65 are affected by Alzheimers. The main risk factors for developing the disease are age and family history. There is no cure for the disease, but drugs are available to treat the symptoms of Alzheimers. While memory loss cannot be prevented, there are some steps you can take to help reduce your risk of develop-ing memory problems. € Exercise regularly.€ Dont smoke or abuse alcohol.€ Follow a healthy diet.€ Engage in social activities.€ Keep your brain active.The difference between normal cases of forgetfulness and more serious prob-lems is that, with dementia, symptoms gradually get worse over time. Its one thing to forget where you parked the car on occasion, but quite another to frequently miss appointments. Talk with your doctor if you feel memory loss may be preventing you from performing daily tasks or affecting your quality of life.To learn more about memory loss and the Memory Disorder Center at St. Marys visit our website at www.Stmarysmc.com.If you would like to schedule a free memory screening at the Memory Disorder Center, call 882-9100.

Q jeannette SHOWALTER CFA showalter@ww fsyst ems.com MONEY & INVESTINGWealthy giving changes in light of federal policyAmericans are among the world leaders in charitable giving. About 65 percent of Americans give charitably. The 2012 Giving USA report released this month by the Center for Philanthropy at Indiana University shows that charitable giving totaled $316 billion, an uptick of 3.5 percent over 2011s total. Thats still signifi-cantly below 2007s peak of $344 billion. The breakdown for the $316 billion in gifts by donor type was: individuals at $229 billion; foundations at $45 billion; bequests at $23 billion; and corporations at $18 bil-lion. And what sectors received these gifts? The top recipients were: religious groups at $101 billion; education at $41 billion; human services (which includes hurricane relief) at $40 billion; foundations at $31 billion; and health organizations at $28 billion. The bulk of the $229 billion in individualŽ giving comes from high-net-worth, or HNW, donors; a group few in number. Roughly half (of the $229 billion) was given by the wealthiest 3 percent of Ameri-can households,Ž says the report. While the report gives insights as to overall giving, the annual Bank of America Annual Study of High Net Worth GivingŽ released in November 2012 and based on 2011s giving focuses on the patterns, pri-orities and trends of Americas wealthiest households. The Bank of America study also was conducted in conjunction with the Center for Philanthropy at Indiana Univer-sity; it is the fourth time-sequenced study covering this groups giving. While the middle and lower economic classes focus their giving on religious causes or their church, the giving by HNW individuals becomes much more diverse and is becoming far more complicated. HNW individuals are defined, per the Indiana University study, as households with incomes exceeding $200,000 and/or with net assets exceeding $1,000,000. It is this group that writes the priceless checks to support the many worthy organizations in higher education, medical research, health institutions, the arts and so forth. Their reasons for giving vary, from passionate interests, to peer pressure, to com-plicated tax strategies, to generational fam-ily traditions, etc. But their capacity to give might be constrained by higher levels of taxation and the economic sub par recovery. As a consequence, HNW giving (excluding the top 50 philanthropists) is changing. The biggest change in 2011s HNW giving (excluding the mega million gifts or outliersŽ) was that giving decreased from 2009 The average amount donated to phil-anthropic causes in 2011 was $52,770 „ a 7 percent decline from 2009.Ž (But it is a 45 percent decline from 2005 when the aver-age amount „ excluding the outlierŽ gifts „ was $96,408.) Even though high-net-worth households are on average giving less, the giving of the top 50 philanthropists moves the overall meter. In 2011, the inclusion of the bequest from the estate of Margaret Cargill „ $4.4 billion „ accounted for the decline in giv-ing by the average HNW households. Besides a decline in gifting, The Philanthropy Daily reported lat November that the HNW givers made some other changes in 2011. They became more focused, reduc-ing the number of gift recipients. Surprisingly, according to the Bank of America report, the HNW group expects nonprofits to spend an appropriate amount of their donation on general administra-tion and fundraisingƒŽ as it demonstrates sound business and operational practices. They expect nonprofits to honor their request for privacy and anonymity and sim-ilarly to not distribute their name to others The HNW group is very much impacted by tax policy. The Obama administration threatened at several points in Obamas first term to decrease the value of the charitable deduction for high-income households. Nearly half „ 49 percent „ of respondents in the new Bank of America report said that they would decrease their charitable giving in response to such a move (about the same percentage of respondents who reported that they would feel this way in the previ-ous Bank of America reports).Ž For those who readily point to the wealthy as not paying their fair share, they might want to, firstly, consider the degree to which the HNW group give more than their fair share (ƒ to many nonprofits for which they or their children are direct recipients of such largesse; e.g., gifts that help colleges meet their budgets) and, second, consider that the nature of very large gifts generally requires a lot of time and effort in making the gift. More than 90 percent of the HNW group donate time to the nonprofits. Beyond this service, most donors expend much time finding suitable recipients; conducting due diligence to affirm legitimacy; structur-ing the gift for tax benefit and creating a vehicle for giving in perpetuity; reviewing the funds expenditure and effectiveness, etc. Rarely is a large gift made without a multitude of such time-consuming steps. Rarely is the gift whimsically made. This columns focus on HNW giving does not suggest that lower and middle income groups are not doing their very best in their charitable giving and labors. The various reports are worthy of reading by those involved with nonprofit giving or solicitation. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems, 239-571-8896.

A s t h e mark et fo r h o m e s al es t i g h te n s, r e n t al mark et i s t i g h te r st illFor the past several years I have had many clients referred to me, seeking a seasonal furnished rental. Most of these clients are thinking of renting for a season before they make a commitment to purchase in the area. Some of them even rent for several sea-sons until they can decide which area fits their needs best. With the rental market very strong the last couple years, the choices available to rental clientele have diminished „ but there has always been a few good options when it comes time to rent. With the housing inventory so tight this year, the rental market seems to be even tighter. It has been a challenge to find a good rental meeting clients criteria, within a specified time range. I have several examples of this, but a few in particular. Last year, I rented a waterfront condominium to a couple from New Jersey. They wanted to stay in the building and explore the opportunity to purchase. They rented from January through April and as their rental came to an end, they began looking to purchase. They felt very comfortable in the building but had also gained an insight as to which units they would be interested in. At the time, of 131 units, there were only eight for sale as compared to the previous April, when there were 14 for sale. Also, the specific floor they wanted to purchase on was not available, so we decided to look at rentals again in case nothing came available over the next several months. As we began looking at rentals, there was one. We looked at it the same day; put a deposit down and my clients signed the lease within two hours of viewing it. They did not want to take the chance of losing the rental without knowing if anything would even come up for sale. As of today, I am still looking for a unit for them to purchase and they receive any updates that take place in the building directly from the multi-ple listing service. If something does become available, they can always sub-lease their rental, or, they are even will-ing to risk the losing the rental fee if the right unit comes on the market for sale. In a different scenario, I met another couple late in March and they toured one of the country clubs that I am very active in. They liked a few of the homes, but didnt want to rush into any decisions. They decided to join the club and rent for the upcoming season, either a home in the community or a condominium by the beach that their family can enjoy. I have been working with this couple now for four weeks. Their criteria are specific, but not unreasonable. They will pay up to $10,000 per month furnished and would like 3 bedrooms, close to the beach within a few mile radius of Jupiter. They also would like finer finishes in the condominium or town home. I began looking a few weeks ago and there are very few options. Specifically, three condos meet their criteria. After discussing the options with them, they would like to look for other rentals and are willing to broaden the location of where they would like to be. How-ever, they are hesitant because they are shocked that only three properties meet their criteria. They feel like there should be more on the market than what is available. The truth is, the market is tighter than ever and I had told them as soon as I began searching that rentals go very quickly. Most of the time, by the time they would book a flight to come to the area, the rental will be gone. Typically, I will view the rental myself, take additional photos and offer my suggestion of wheth-er it is a good option for the season. This has worked well in the past and I hope it will continue to work as the market tightens. I am hopeful that I will be able to find them a terrific rental that meets their needs and they will fall in love with Florida just like the rest of us.

The plant, named Audrey II, chases that fare down to a 60s-style doowop score that includes such songs as Little Shop of Horrors,Ž Suddenly SeymourŽ and Skid Row.Ž Its fun, and the musical literally is camp „ summer campers are produc-ing the show, set for June 28-29 at Jupi-ter High Schools Auditorium. Its one of my top favorite shows of all times,Ž said John Mercurio, music director of the show. Mr. Mercurio has been involved in theater for three decades, going back to the day he and the Maltzs produc-ing artistic director, Andrew Kato, worked as waiters in the Maltz space when it was Burt Reynolds dinner theater. So what sets this apart?First of all, I just think the music is so fresh. The lyrics are smart; theyre funny. Ive grown to appreciate it as I myself have tried to write a show that has this kind of combination of styles,Ž Mr. Mercurio said. Its spoof, its sat-ire, its over the top and at the same time, its capable of songs like Skid Row and Suddenly Seymour. Ž Those are two of the standouts of the show. Either one sounds like sort of a traditional musical theater song where its huge sweeping emotion and you actu-ally end up caring about the characters in the context of an over-the-top satiric thing, so I think being able to combine those two styles is what I admire most about the piece,Ž he said.

There May Be a Pill for That.Ž The article explores the pharmaceutical industrys response to the complicated female libido, a subject that has long fascinated (and eluded) researchers. In the story were given a look into the science behind a new medication called Lybrido currently undergo-ing FDA trials. The pill aims to kindle female desire; many hope it will be a panacea for the declining sex drives that haunt many long-term couples. The article rightly points out the complexity of female desire, an elaborate system of physical and emotional stimuli often weighed down by the demands of daily life. Any misstep on the way to copula-tion „ and there are many „ can snuff out a womans appetite. Sci-entists are aiming to develop a drug that would prevent that, but to call these medications a female version of Viagra is misleading, the articles author writes: Viagra meddles with the arteries; it causes physical shifts that allow the penis to rise. A female-desire drug would be something else. It would adjust the primal and executive regions of the brain. It would reach into the psyche.Ž The complicating factor with the female libido, it seems, has less to do with quotidian distractions and more to do with the quotidian itself. Through his research, the author suggests that the plunge in female libido is often tied to long-term monogamy. Whereas male desire stabilizes in a relationship, female desire plummets. Were not so much distracted, it turns out, as bored. Which is a terrifying prospect. So terrifying that a drug has been invented to counteract it. But what exactly are we afraid of? Perhaps that everything will fall apart. Weve created this mass delusion that we should find the right person, settle down together and feel uncomplicated lust into old age, long after the sheen has worn off the wedding china. We think if only we choose correctly, if we behave wisely, if we keep a tight rein on our desires and toe the unambivalent line, then this fan-tasy will come to pass. And if not? Now theres a pharmaceutical solution. What worries me about all this is not simply our reliance on an easy external fix „ the fact that we would turn to a pill in times of struggle „ but our unwillingness to examine lifes messy complications. We expend so much energy fortifying this ideal life we have built in our minds that we miss the opportunities for dazzling misadventures. Lifes most worthy moments rarely spring from smooth pas-sages. They arise during the com-plicated chapters, the parts where we thought everything was fall-ing down around us. If a perfectly content existence were handed to us in a pill, we would lose the rich complexity that makes this time on earth so remarkable. Id argue that the human condition is a state of uncertainty, and that the intangible loveliness of existence comes from the ebb and flow of all things „ including desire. Why would we ever give that up? Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS o a i p w t artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

But the traditions that will lure people to Roger Dean on July 3 and 4 are solidly American. Were doing a military appreciation night on July 3,Ž said Mike Bauer, the stadiums general manager. Were invit-ing all military with an ID to come for free, and their family members will get in at a rate of $5.50 so long as they pur-chase tickets before July 1.Ž Visitors can tour military vehicles, and can see the chin-up bars and rock-climbing walls used in military training. There also will be presentation of a POW flag, which will fly at Roger Dean on designated days. Hopefully, we can get some POWs out here,Ž Mr. Bauer said. Baseball is the main draw, and a minor league game between the Jupiter Hammerheads and the St. Lucie Mets will get under way at 6:05 p.m. July 3. There will be a concert by the Billy Joel tribute band, Piano Man, and fireworks will follow. Independence Day promises even more action. There will be more fireworks after a 6:05 p.m. game between the Palm Beach Gardens Cardinals and the Charlotte Stone Crabs. July 4th is probably one of the most fun events we have in the minor league season. It gives us that spring training feeling again,Ž Mr. Bauer said. Lazy Bonez, an 80s tribute band, will play after the game. Ever seen the movie Rock of Ages, with Tom Cruise? One of the guys was in the movie somehow,Ž Mr. Bauer said. The involvement with Rock of AgesŽ actually was fairly substantial. Guitar-ist Brev Sullivan was featured as the rhythm guitarist in the fictional band Arsenal in the movie. Movies aside, the band is known for playing the songs of such hair bands as Bon Jovi, Mtley Cre, Poison, Def Lep-pard, Van Halen and AC/DC. And after Lazy Bonez plays, expect more fireworks. We are honored to host the fireworks show here. Were lucky that we have a good relation with the towns of Juno and Jupiter. Also, Abacoa, on the Fourth, they have their big Fourth of July celebration, too,Ž he said. They cordone off the road between the two. Theres more fun with bands and a lot of fun things to do. It really is going to be a fun couple of days for anyone in the north part of the county.Ž Mr. Bauer said his two children will be there to enjoy the festivities. An $8 mega kids area pass allows unlimited fun in bounce houses and slides. My wife and the kids will be there and shell usually bring a couple of fam-ilies with her. They can eat a hot dog, watch the fireworks and burn off some energy,Ž he said. Its the perfect way to do it.Ž Q MEGABASHFrom page 1 Independence Day events >> Megabash V — Roger Dean Stadium, Abacoa Town Center, Jupiter.

This is not Mr. Nahas first perfor-mance of the show. He played Seymour in high school and directed the show last year at the Lake Worth Playhouse. I love that its funny but theres also the dark side to it. Its little creepy on one edge, but its fun on the other side,Ž he said. Mr. Nahas, who appeared in the Maltzs production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicol-or Dreamcoat,Ž said he has been amazed at the performanc-es he has coaxed from his student cast. Theres not a lot of time. Were pushing them like we would profes-sionals, almost even harder,Ž he said. This show frequently is popular with community theater troupes because it typically relies on a small cast. With this show, its a show thats usually just for a cast of, like, eight people but were doing it now with 49 kids and were thinking outside the box,Ž he said. For me, its a chal-lenge because Im used to doing it one way and now Im getting to challenge myself in a completely different way and finding things in the story that we can now incorporate an ensemble into. Its a big show for kids to learn, dont you think?Ž Mr. Mercurio agreed.I think especially the way were opening it up to so many characters. Suddenly the trios that we were doing before were nonets,Ž he said. But those trios, quartets and even nonets help tell a story that has a uni-versal theme. The more I spend time with this its really a Faustian bargain. Its very traditional like the guy sells his soul to the devil to get the girl and to get love. I mean, hes the devil in the play. Hes Mephistophales.Ž Sounds like Academy,Ž the show Mr. Mercurio created with Mr. Kato. The men laugh.The underdog gets what he wants but not really,Ž said Mr. Nahas.

The food generally was well received but could be inconsistent, thanks to staffing changes. Whether people come to a country bar or come to a martini bar, its important not to discount the food „ but its really important the expectations are somewhat met,Ž Mr. Mash said during a visit to the Buckwild space, which was still under construction. I think I want-ed to build something that made people feel as if they were someplace else other than coming to the Marriott or coming to a typical country bar.Ž This will be high-end. Hand-painted murals greet visitors at the entranc-es. There is a large stage, and, yes, a mechanical bull awaits its next victim. Mr. Mash and his team have clearly spent a lot of time thinking about the space, which has multiple levels, perfect for people-watching. And if the crowd doesnt catch the eye, clever western-themed signs that direct patrons to the Whiskey Bar or to outhousesŽ are sure to draw a smile. We really wanted to leave an impression. We wanted people to understand that country could be just as nice as some of the dance clubs, but its just catering to country music and live coun-try music. It doesnt have to be concrete floors and that type of atmosphere,Ž he said. A lot of people who like country drive Range Rovers and Suburbans and, you know, theyre soccer moms.Ž He has seen those soccer moms and dads enjoying country music concerts at Cruzan Amphitheatre and elsewhere. Country is the No. 1 genre of music right now in the country. I think our country was built on country music, you know. I really enjoy country music. Its one of those things that is developed, sort of like wine. You know, you dont develop a wine taste in high school and college until you get out and you start experiencing things,Ž he said. His tastes have evolved over the past couple of decades. I remember liking, when I grew up in high school, I liked hip-hop music and rock and roll, and then sl owly y our tastes change. I liked dance music when I was in my early 20s. I liked the house dance music and that was great. I find myself gravitating toward going to all the country concerts and how it makes you feel. A lot of people go there with families. Its a lot of fun. Its friendly, its fun, its people having a good time. I find myself enjoying that a lot.Ž But there are not a lot of country bars in the area. Renegades in West Palm Beach is perhaps the most notable coun-try music-themed club in Palm Beach County. There is certainly room for another one, and theres certainly room for one that is going to be targeting older demo-graphics. We want to target a little bit more of a Palm Beach Gardens-Jupiter sophisticated crowd that enjoys live country music, well do live shows. Were a small venue, but were giving folks something thats missing,Ž he said. The country theme is fitting, given that the Palm Beach Gardens area arose from an agricultural area. Mr. Mash remembers a time when strawberry fields and not the homes of Mirasol were across from PGA National. There were horse ranches along Military Trail, and Club Safari was the only game in town. Now there are the bars and clubs at Downtown at the Gardens „ Cabo Flats, which serves Mexican-inspired fare, RA Sushi, with its fresh seafood theme, and Yard House, with its hun-dreds of beers. And at Buckwild?Mr. Mash anticipates serving martinis and such, but he expects to serve a lot of whiskeys in the space. You get involved in the concept,Ž he said, citing how visitors immerse themselves in a culture when they travel anywhere from Disney World to Little Italy. Buckwild will offer a food menu from the Marriott kitchen. He hopes it will offer an experience that equals, at least on some levels, what he saw 20 years ago at Club Safari. Club Safari, for a lot of the people who didnt grow up here, was the king of the clubs for the first five years in northern Palm Beach County. It was the dominant player in the community, and we attracted (actors) John Goodman and Ray Liotta back when they were big-time characters. If you were some-body in Palm Beach County and wanted to go to an upscale club, you went here,Ž he said. Two decades later, he hopes that is a tradition that continues. I look back and it was a wonderful experience to be a part of that.Ž Q „ J.R.s Buckwild holds its grand opening from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. June 27.

County Road, Palm Beach; 833-3450 or buccanpalmbeach.com The Price: $9.50 The Details: For those of you who are already going, Ewww!Ž at the notion of Brussels sprouts, just hush for a minute. These are not Gr andmas overcooked, possibly canned, sprouts that fall apart and stink like cabbage on a bad day. No, these sprouts are crisp and light, perfect for dining on a summer night. They have been shredded, tossed with a rich, housemade Caesar dressing and served with croutons and copious quantities of sliced Parmesan. And the result is heavenly, not unlike the bulk of chef Clay Conleys small-plates fare at Buccan, which was packed with customers on a Saturday night. Also worthy of note: the crispy mushroom pizza, with gruyere, grilled green onion and a black truffle vinaigrette ($16), and the inventive hot dog panini, pressed with sauerkraut, gruyere, mustard and chili.

Table 26? Packed. Buc-can? Packed, with only limited reservations available. Waiting lists remain at such popular breakfast and lunch spots as City Diner and John Gs, and eateries at CityPlace were doing a brisk business on a recent Sunday morning, and weeknights have found eateries at such northern Palm Beach County venues as PGA Commons, Midtown and Downtown at the Gardens to be full. Expect lines at such popular spots as Coolinary Caf, Hurricane Caf and Kee Grill, and be sure to check out the specials Cod & Capers has added to the menu at its caf at Crystal Tree Plaza. Back on the island, Palm Beachers and mainlanders alike are flocking to Caf Boulud, which is offering a $35 three-course prix fixe menu. Also in the works at Boulud: Celebrity Chef Daniel Boulud is bringing his Boulud Sud concept back to the Brazilian Court Hotel for dinner seven days a week from July 3 through Sept. 2. The menu brings together fare from around the Mediterranean, and the pop-up will operate as a stand-alone restaurant on Caf Bouluds air-conditioned terrace at the Brazilian Court. The pop-up will serve an la carte dinner menu daily from 5:3010 p.m., and a three-course prix fixe menu for $35 per person on Saturdays and Sundays. It is at 301 Australian Ave., Palm Beach. Visit thebraziliancourt.com or call 655-7740. Now open: The Brass Tap has opened at CityPlace in West Palm Beach. The restaurant and pub has opened across from the Harriet Himmel Theater in a space beneath B.B. Kings that once was home to retail spaces. Brass Tap boasts that it offers more than 300 craft beers, as well as a diverse wine list and premium cigars. Food at this location, one of 14 in Florida, Ohio and Texas, includes panini and a prime rib sandwich, a staff member said. Its at 550 Rosemary Ave., CityPlace, West Palm Beach; 366-9226 or brasstapbeerbar.com. Reopened: After being closed a few months, the long-popular Thai Bay has reopened in smaller digs at the former Dolce de Palma on Old Okeechobee Road in West Palm Beach. Dean Hoffman and his wife, Voonsom, had opened the restaurant in 1988 on Okeechobee Boulevard just west of Interstate 95. The restaurant closed when its landlords declined to renew its lease; Aleydas Mexican restaurant, which had been in the out-parcel of that same shopping center, closed for the same reason. Thai Bays new space is much smaller than the former restaurant, but old-timers will be pleased to know the menu remains much the same. Hours are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday and 2 p.m.10 p.m. Sunday.

Closed: Russells Blue Water Grill, at 2450 PGA Blvd., has closed. The eatery, the brainchild of restaura-teur Russell Beverstein and chef Charlie Coe, has been stripped of its fittings, though a printout of a Zagat rating remains taped to a window near the door. The phone rings unanswered. Russells opened in 2011. Taste lionfish: The River Center is partnering with Martin County to present a special LionfishŽ evening at 5 p.m. June 28. The evening will feature presentations by Zack Jud of Florida International University and Emily Dark of Ani-toch University, two expert speakers on lionfish. There also will be a lionfish tasting. The event is open to the public and free to attend, but seating is limited. RSVP at 743-7123 or by emailing RiverCenter@LoxahatcheeRiver.org. Organizers hope to encourage participation in the Martin County Artificial Reef Programs 7th Annual Reef Builders Tournament & Lionfish Roundup sched-uled for July 13. The tournament will host multiple weigh-in sites throughout the Treasure Coast, including the pier at Burt Reynolds Park, which will be staffed by River Center employees from noon to 4 p.m. that day. Cost is $50 per diver or $150 for a team of four divers. Details at www.mcacreefs.org. The River Center is at 805 N. U.S. Highway 1 in Jupiter at Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter.

Do you sometimes wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air? These may be signs of a more serious sleep disorder, commonly known as sleep apnea. According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep apnea affects more than 18 million Americans. Sleep apnea is seen more frequently among men than among women, particularly African-American and Hispanic men. Major symptoms include snoring, gasping or choking (sometimes so loud that bed partners find it intolerable), accompanied by daytime sleepiness or fatigue. Other indications that sleep apnea may be present are bouts of awakening short of breath during the night, and frequently waking in the morning with a dry mouth or headache, feeling groggy or un-refreshed. But these symptoms are not always present. Only a sleep study can definitively diagnose sleep apnea and its severity, performed painlessly in a comfortable hotel-like environment. Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause serious health risks such as high blood pressure, heart dis-ease, stroke, diabetes, depression, impotence and living SEE SLEEP, B4 XBY NEAL NAY, RPSGT, RSTManager, Jupiter Medical Centers Sleep Center Tired of Feeling Tired?

After my dad passed away, my mom managed to remain at home. However, I began to notice that she was not eating well, was losing weight and had dif-ficulty sleeping. Since Dad did most of the driving, Mom wasnt getting out as often and she became less social. My family began to have concerns about her overall health and safety. Then, Mom had a fall last year. She injured her wrist and shoulder, and was admitted into the hospi-tal. Mom was a real trouper through her rehabilitation and we were all proud of her determina-tion to get better. At that time, our family discussed the possibility of Mom moving to an assisted living community, but she wanted to remain at home. A few months later Mom fell again. This time it was not easy for her to recov-er. Although she showed improvement after several weeks of rehabilitation, we knew that Mom should not return home alone. Again, we had concerns about her health and safety. After much discus-sion, we felt that assisted living was the best place to meet her needs. We wanted a place for Mom to call home, a place where she would enjoy living, meet new friends, and be active; a home where we would have peace of mind knowing she would be safe. Her needs included assistance with personal care, meals, housekeeping, transporta-tion, assistance with medication man-agement, scheduling of her physician appointments and on-going medical supervision. In January, Mom moved into her own apartment at St. Josephs Assisted Living Community in Jupiter. We knew that the transition from her home to an assisted living was going to be difficult. How-ever, I can tell you that today my Mom loves it! She has made new friends and is happy and thriving. The care partner-ship with St. Josephs has given us peace of mind knowing she is well cared for and safe. I have the chance to be her daughter again. … A grateful daughter.At St. Josephs we recognize that seniors would prefer to be at home, however, assisted living might be the next best thing; especially for seniors who have been readmitted to the hospi-tal or who have been to the emergency room several times in the past year. Seniors often have multiple and com-plex health concerns causing higher incidence of being readmitted to a hospital within 30 days of dis-charge. Nearly one in five seniors who are hospitalized return to the hospital within 30 days, according to a recently released report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foun-dation. Top reasons seniors are readmitted to the hospital € Patients may be confused over which medications to take and when. € Some patients were unsure about diet and exercise regimens. € Patients may have poor nutrition and may easily become dehy-drated. € Follow-up appointments with their physicians do not happen soon enough after discharge so that warning signs of declining health can be detected sooner. € Some patients are just simply unable and or do not have easy access to transportation to get them-selves to their scheduled appointments with their primary or specialty physi-cians. € Family caregivers often feel unprepared to provide care, and do not have the training to deliver necessary ongo-ing and daily care. € For the seniors, re-hospitalization can be traumatizing, and yet it is often avoidable.

Depending on your age, personal history, and family history, you may have needed to go for a periodic mammography, colonoscopy, or cardiac stress test. If everything was fine, you have probably been instructed to follow-up next year, in three years, or in five years or more. As treatment is usually more effective and easier to accomplish in the early stages of ill-ness, screening procedures are an important com-ponent of a public health and health care policy. Most people are general-ly aware of the use-fulness of periodic screening exams for chronic diseas-es such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Spinal screening, performed by your chiropractor, is an additional important service to assist you in maintaining your long-term health and well being. Your spinal column is designed for two primary purposes: to provide for an extensive range of motion in three directions (forward and backward, side-to-side, and rotation) and to house and protect the spinal cord. Both of these functions are critical to ensuring ongoing health and wellness. A chiroprac-tic spinal screening exam analyzes your spine to identify localized regions of lim-ited mobility and to detect the presence of nerve interference. First, if your spine is not freely movable, you will likely begin to experience neck, mid back, or low back pain. People often wonder why they have such pains. A person will typically say, "I didn't do anything, really. I was driving and just looked around to make sure I could change lanes safely. Now I can't move my neck." Another person might say, "All I did was bend over to pick up the mail. My back really hurts." The problem caus-ing their pain wasn't the simple twisting or bending motion. The problem was an underlying one „ a lack of full mobility in the affected region of the spine. Next, your spinal cord is a direct extension of your brain. Your spinal cord connects your brain with the rest of your body through numerous pairs of spinal nerves. These spinal nerves branch out and create a complex communication network, sending signals from your brain to your body and from your body back to your brain. A mechanical problem in the spinal column can cause irritation to local spi-nal muscles, ligaments, and joints, which in turn can irritate spinal nerves and cause nerve interference. Nerve inter-ference can cause disturbances in your body's neural network, delaying nerve signals or causing information to be transmitted incorrectly or at the wrong time. Over time, symptoms develop in the affected region or regions as cells, tissues, and organs no longer do their job effectively. Eventually, symptoms may develop into full-blown chronic diseases. Often, mechanical problems in the spine are not immediately obvious. The effects of nerve interference and back pain on a person's health take time to develop. As with other chronic health issues, prevention is the best strategy. A spinal screening performed by your local chiropractor is the best way of detecting underlying problems. Chi-ropractic care then corrects nerve inter-ference, helping your body perform effectively and helping you to enjoy long-lasting health and well being.

Also, women who are overweight or have high blood pressure that is difficult to control despite taking medication, may also wish to be evaluated for sleep apnea, as diagnosis and treatment can help with blood pressure regulation. What are the different types of sleep apnea? € Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the rear of the throat collapses and closes during sleep. € Central sleep apnea occurs when the airway is not blocked but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe. € Mixed sleep apnea, as the name implies, is a combination of the two. With each apnea event, the brain rous-es the sleeper, usually only partially, to signal breathing to resume. As a result, the patients sleep is extremely frag-mented and of poor quality. Typically, patients with obstructive sleep apnea stop breathing hundreds of times each night for periods of 10 to 120 seconds at a time. How does sleep apnea affect children? Obstructive sleep apnea is also seen in children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has reported that chil-dren with chronic snoring should be evaluated for sleep apnea. More than 30 percent of children with previ-ous diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder have been shown to have sleep apnea. Children with disturbed sleep from any cause often become overactive in contrast to adults. Treatment for children often involves surgery to remove the tonsils and adenoids.What you can do to get a better night’s sleepIf you or your loved ones are suffering from a restless nights sleep, the first step is to see a sleep specialist for an evaluation, then an overnight sleep study if required. Once diagnosed, sleep apnea is usually treated with lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, breathing devices or in some cases, surgery. Established in 1990, Jupiter Medical Centers Sleep Center is the only hos-pital-based facility in Northern Palm Beach County accredited by the Ameri-can Academy of Sleep Medicine. The Sleep Center provides a comprehensive program specifically designed to evalu-ate and treat all types of sleep-related disorders with the highest quality of care and commitment.

Acupuncture and sleep disorders T he science of sleep is a vast topic. Mostly everyone has had some episode where sleeping was diffi-cult to either initiate or maintain. In true sl eep disorders, however, sleep is chronically disrupted or even impossible. The results of untreat-ed sleep disorders can lead to fatigue, aches and pains and even cardiac events. What are the causes of these problems?Sometimes these disorders are caused by chemi-cal imbalances in the neurologi-cal system. This can be genetic or caused by a trau-ma or disease. The first line of treatment is typically to see your family doctor. Blood tests and exams can determine if these may be the cause. Other times, breathing difficulties may cause the problem. This can be determined by specialists, such as ear, nose and throat doctors. You may be asked to undergo a sleep study where your breathing patterns are studied overnight. Frequently, sleep apnea is diagnosed. This is a condition in which breathing during sleep can be obstruct-ed and lead to insufficient oxygen and disrupted sleep patterns. However, sometimes, when all other exams are normal, it can be determined that sleep disorders are caused by stress. Acupuncture has been shown to decrease stress and improve sleep. It can do this without pills (which are typically habit forming) or side effects. Acupuncture helps to improve the bal-ance of neurotransmitters in the ner-vous system. Many times this stress reduction will lead to a normal nights sleep.

The benefits of becoming a yoga teacher are obvious „ inspire and positively affect others while you share your passion of yoga. So what makes a great yoga teacher?Q Presence „ This is one of those indescribable qualities that you can feel when a great yogi walks into the room „ their presence commands attention. Their energy can pick you up, it can make you feel at ease, it can make you feel welcome, and it can make you want to prac-tice even when you are not feeling so hot.Ž Q Personal practice „ Though you dont have to be the most gifted physi-cally, you have to embody your own flow. Teaching comes from what you feel in your own practice. That can and should come from all aspects „ mind, body and spirit. The reality is that every teacher is a student that either is or was influenced by another great teacher.Q Work the room „ Great leaders can work the room and make every person they come in contact with feel special, even if just for a few moments. Its as if they can effortlessly feel their way around a room and make personal connections.Q Adjustments „ Simple and subtle touches to help assist and deepen into poses are another extension of work-ing the room. Its easy to lack perfect alignment whether you are a novice or advanced practitioner. You may be unfamiliar with a pose, be tired, or simply have developed some bad habits over time. Sometimes you may not even realize how far off track you are until a teacher adjusts you. And even when a teacher cant make it around to adjust everyone in every pose, they know how to use their words and voice to inspire and deepen.Q Fun „ Sometimes we can get too serious about all of this. At the end of the day (or class) its just yoga! Play fun music, be light hearted, and be able to not only breathe, but sometimes laugh through it.

The next two hours are spent tossing and turning, worrying about all you have to do in the day ahead as you stare at the glowing clock. Finally, you drift back to sleep only to awaken exhausted just 15 minutes later to the blare of your cell phone alarm. Sound familiar?If so, youre certainly not alone. Approximately one-third of all adults experience some form of insufficient sleep syndrome, which can vary from restless sleep to complete wakefulness. The incidence of sleep disorders jumps with maturity, from 5 percent of people ages 30 to 50, to nearly 30 percent of those over 50. Women are nearly twice as likely to lose sleep compared to men. In many cases, the change from a sedentary to a more physically active lifestyle is all that is needed to put one back on the road to improved sleep pat-terns. Regular expo-sure to natural sun-light „ particularly in the late afternoon „ is an important part of healthy sleep hygiene. Moderate aerobic exercise like outdoor cycling per-formed at least four hours before bed-time can significant-ly impact a return to healthy sleep habits. What we like to do is get someone to recognize a pattern. Begin by riding your bike one time per week for three weeks straight,Ž explains Matt Goforth of the On Your Mark Performance Center Team. You must commit. Once you can consistently do this, add a second day. Now you ride your bike twice per week, and do this for three weeks consecutively. Way to go! Next step is three rides per week for three weeks,Ž states Matt. Its like building blocks starting with the foundation, adding walls, then the roof. We've seen lots of success using this plan,Ž adds Julie Goforth of OYM. Cycling minimizes the excessive build-up of lactic acid that may lead to nighttime leg pain. It reduces negative thoughts and emo-tions through the release of endorphins and facilitates the brain to achieve a deeper level of Stage Four sleep. The vigorous use of the leg muscles to the point of fatigue achieved on a moderately paced, late-afternoon ride has almost a tranquilizer-type effect as long as the ride does not take place too close to bedtime. The significant rise in body tem-perature experienced while cycling followed by the compensatory drop a few hours later makes it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Visit On Your Mark Performance Center today and talk to one of the team members about beginning a new cycling program or enhancing your existing one to aid with healthy sleep restoration. Theyll have you pedaling your way to a well rested, healthier you in no time. Q Overcoming the symptoms of eyestrain Q uestion: What can I do for eyestrain?Answer: In our practice this is a common complaint I hear on a daily basis. Some symp-toms of eyestrain are dry eyes, sore tired burning or itchy eyes, watery eyes, blurred or double vision, and increased sensitivity to light. The medical term for eyestrain is asthenopia. One of the most common causes of eyestrain is using your computer for long periods of time. Sometimes an underlying eye problem such as eye muscle imbal-ance or uncorrect-ed vision may be the cause of eye-strain. We often prescribe eyeglass prescriptions spe-cifically calculated to help with the computer distance, which is unlike the prescription for reading a book. Other causes of eyestrain include reading for extended periods of time, exposure to bright light or glare, straining to see in very dim light, and driving a vehicle for long periods of time. In order to prevent eyestrain, I highly recommend taking eye breaks throughout the day. We refer to this as the 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, take your eyes off the com-puter or reading and look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Try to stand up and move around at least for an hour or so, and blink often to refresh your eyes. Consider using lubricating eye drops; dont use drops that remove the redness, as they may worsen your systems. I recommend a complete eye examination to determine the underly-ing causes of your eyestrain. Perhaps it will be as simple as an eyeglass pre-scription change or trying some of the above hints to relieve your eyestrain.
