Its why she founded the Beyond Blind Institute, based in Palm Beach Gardens, a little more than three years ago. And its propelling this wife, mother and Jupiter resi-dent, who herself is legally blind, to succeed. There are approximately 70,000 visually impaired people living in Palm Beach Coun-ty and Ms. Gugels mission is to change their world, even if she can only do it in small groups at a time. Beyond Blind Institute provides life-enrichment programs for the blind and visually impaired including twice-a-week fitness programs, twice-a-month cooking classes and soon-to-be art classes and golf outings. It (losing sight) can be a prison or a productive life,Ž Ms. Gugel says. Either you take control of it or it will take control of you.Ž There is no reason the blind or visually impaired cant do the same things sighted people do, Ms. Gugel believes. But before BBI was created, there was no path for them to pursue working out or learning how to cook. Now theres nothing stopping them, Ms. Gugel said. I call them (students) the elite of the blind,Ž she said. Ms. Gugel is no stranger to success.

She had to quit her job as a deputy city clerk in her native Illinois and give up her dream of going to law school, but she was determined not to give up. I took about a month to grieve. Then I turned my life-long recorder on,Ž she said. Her reasoning was this: if she could force herself to remember how to do certain tasks, such as apply makeup, for example, she could memorize the steps. That way, as her vision worsened, shed rely on her head, not her eyes. Its a technique she uses to this day. After moving to Palm Beach County, Ms. Gugel was successful in every ven-ture she put her mind to including teach-ing acting at the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theater, top saleswoman for Lancme cosmetics and owner of the Glamour Plus Fashion Show Company. She even entered the Mrs. Florida beauty pageant and came in third-runner up. Then she found herself at a crossroads. She had to accept she was no longer just visually impaired, but legally blind. Ms. Gugel decided to become an interior designer because shed always had a flair for it. But she was worried about climbing up and down ladders to do the work. She and her husband developed the Tool Top-per workstation, a tray that fit on top of a stepladder with compartments for work tools. It was a success. Soon Ms. Gugel found herself marketing her product on QVC and the Home Shopping Network. Tool Topper was named Product of the Year in 1998 at the National Hardware Show. She was invited to go on a trade mission to Israel. In short, she was on top of the world. As she prepared for a big meeting with Sears representatives in Chicago about getting Tool Topper into their stores the unthinkable happened. She was hit by a cab that jumped a curb and slammed into her. She was severely injured. I felt like a jammed computer. I couldnt talk, couldnt feel, couldnt feed myself,Ž she said. Her husband tried to soldier on, but the investor backing Tool Topper decided hed had enough. Just like that, Ms. Gugel lost her product. She was devastated. For 3 years she struggled through rehab and with her emotions. I was so unhappy. It just wasnt me,Ž she said. It was February 2010 and Ms. Gugel was attending a seminar on macular degen-eration. As the experts discussed the lat-est trends, she looked around the room. Nobody was talking about what the blind could do. In fact, nobody in the audience was talking until one man stood up and asked a question, revealing that he was a blind golfer. Suddenly a slew of hands shot up with questions. There was such need in that room,Ž Ms. Gugel said. And then she realized what her next move should be. Going public with her own struggle of losing her eyesight and creating programs to give the blind and visually impaired a chance to participate more fully in life. She decided the first step in her multitiered program would be fitness. Bodies Beyond Blindness meets on Wednesdays from 2-4 p.m. and Saturdays from 1:30-3:30 at Loggerhead Fitness Center in Juno Beach. The fitness center donates the space. It is a mandatory class, Ms. Gugel said. Ms. Gugel thought teaching participants how to cook healthy meals was the next logical step, so the Sightless Chef program was born. She approached a class at the Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach with her idea. Recent graduate Ryan Trinkofsky was intrigued. He became culinary director for BBI four months ago and couldnt be more pleased with his unconventional choice. Its fun. I like to teach,Ž he said. And hes amazed at how quickly students have picked up technique whether its learning to julienne vegetables or prepare snapper en papillote, a dish they made in June. The class meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month at Whole Foods Market in Downtown at the Gardens. The space is donated by Whole Foods. Richard Incandela, 30, of Wellington has been attending BBI almost since it formed. He is in training to become a sightless chef, who, with the help of a sighted chef, will cook for dinner parties in private homes, a fundraising effort Ms. Gugel is putting together. Mr. Incandela was involved in a car accident that robbed him of his sight and four fingers on his left hand. He was a classical guitar player before the accident so the double whammy really did a num-ber on him psychologically, he said. It was just sad. I didnt have much going on,Ž Mr. Incandela said. But through BBI hes made friends and now has a future he looks forward to. He has two words about recommending the program to others: show up. Dont hesitate. It will change your life,Ž he said. Ms. Gugel has many more programs in the works including Brushes of Blindness, an arts program and A Blind Shot, a golf league thats forming at Abacoa. Eventual-ly she wants to build a 30,000-square-foot center to hold all of the classes, plus add womens and mens salons, a swimming pool and more.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONCooks Gone WildThere is a price to pay for willful ignorance sustained at someone elses expense. Paula Deen will have a long time to consider what she might have done better or differently; or perhaps stopped doing altogether, in the after-math of the bad kitchen behaviors that are now public record. Her fans as well as her detractors are in full-throated defense or condemnation, depending at which end of the table they have chosen to sit. The public uproar started when Deen went on video for a court deposition. A former employee in one of her restau-rants filed a lawsuit accusing Deen of employment discrimination. The depo-sition had the same flavor as a cook show episode, albeit a very different topic. Deen was her flamboyant self; her cup of folksiness runneth over as she described at length her racial attitudes. It was quite a performance. She owned up to her naughtiness at having used the nŽ word, expressing her regret and sorrow and that she never meant to hurt anyone. She was sorry, sorry, sorry. She loves Black people. Well, all hell broke loose. There have been more television interviews, more apologies, explanations and tears. Yet the more Deen talks and tries to negoti-ate her way out of this briar patch, the more excruciating her anguished pro-tests of repentance have become. Shes been seared like a steak by the public shaming. The charitable-minded have come forth and counseled against an excess of blame, i.e., those without guilt should caste the first stone.Ž The penance we pay for our humility in common must account for Deens latest cookbook rocketing to the top of Amazons best-seller list. So when will we be done? Some say, because she is not a young woman, we should forgive her white, old school,Ž southern way of talking about race. She has suffered a pain-ful come-uppance, including the loss of millions in product endorsements; and though misguided, her comments werent intentionally nasty, just like utter ances weve heard from other nice people we know. Why, heck, some of them are even our relatives! Meanwhile, the people, who otherwise listened to what she said, saw hoop skirts and Massas plantation res-urrected before their horrified eyes. These are the people who do not think it would be fun to re-live the 19th Century, especially in the South. To them, Deens racial attitudes were both anachronistic and offensive. Deen is a savvy entrepreneur who has successfully capitalized on southern culture and culinary heritage by making SouthernŽ the heart of her brand; so she isnt just dishing up fried chicken and collard greens when she is promot-ing her business. She is selling a version of an authenticŽ South for which she is the star spokesperson. When you go out on that limb, you own it. When she says southern white folk are less prejudiced toward Black people than others she is too polite to name, she does so with the credibility of someone divulging a family secret as if its the gospel truth to her millions of trusted fans. She defends her racial atti-tudes, saying all Southern white people have this specialŽ relationship with Black folk because their mutual, shared history is deeply and commonly rooted in the South. This white chauvinism conveniently ignores the pain and suffering endured by Blacks as Southern slaves. Deens great-great-great-great grandfather was a slaveholder. Had this specialŽ rela-tionship been internalized in Deens narrative, a more racially sensitive per-spective might have emerged to also change her behaviors. It would have helped had they also been enlightened by her modern refer-ence to the two hundred years of strug-gle by African-Americans to achieve racial equity in this country. It is terribly painful to witness someone so deeply out of touch with the arc of their own southern history; and who has given so little thought to the harm it does to infect others with old deceits. The civil rights movement ended Jim Crow, the segregation in our public schools, and won the right to vote for millions of disenfranchised African-Americans. This past June, the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Vot-ing Rights Act; the George Zimmerman trial got started; and a hard-fought battle for a comprehensive immigration bill took place in the U.S. Senate. We are not living in a post-racial society. Deens fall from grace is a reminder of how easy it is to lose your way when your brain disconnects from its moral compass; or, in another painful episode of same, given the gravity associated with any murder trial, is it ever appro-priate to tell a knock-knock joke when lives are lost and at stake?

Thank a protesterMore than 160 years ago, the greatest abolitionist in U.S. history, the escaped slave Frederick Douglass, addressed the Rochester Ladies Anti-Slavery Society. Douglass asked those gathered, What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?Ž His words bore repeating recently on Independence Day, as the United States asserted unprecedented author-ity to wage war globally, to spy on everyone, everywhere. Independence Day should serve not as a blind cel-ebration of the government, but as a moment to reflect on the central place in our history of grass-roots democ-racy movements, which have preserved and expanded the rights proclaimed in the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence: Life, liberty, and the pur-suit of happiness. Douglass not only denounced the hypocrisy of slavery in a democracy, but worked diligently to build the abo-litionist movement. Today, movements continue to shape our society. The trial of George Zimmerman, accused of mur-dering Trayvon Martin, would not be happening now in Florida were it not for a mass movement. Sparked by the seeming official indifference to the shooting death of yet another young, African-American male, nationwide protests erupted, leading to the a special pros-ecutor. A month and a half after Martin was killed, Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder. Gay men and lesbians have seen sweeping changes in their legal rights, as same-sex marriages become legal in state after state, the U.S. military has dropped its official discrimination against homosexuality, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act was recently judged unconstitutional. Again, under-girding this progress are the decades of movement-building. In Egypt, the revolution dubbed the Arab Spring continues, with mass pro-tests forcing out President Mohamed Morsi. Where this goes now, with the military in power, is yet to be deter-mined. The United States has been for well over two centuries a beacon for those around the world suffering under tyran-ny. But the U.S. also has been the prime global opponent of grass-roots demo-cratic movements. Amazingly, South African President Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress were not taken off the U.S. terrorist watch list until 2008. When the people of Chile elected Salvador Allende, the U.S. backed a coup against him on Sept. 11, 1973, ushering in the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, who murdered thousands of his own citizens, crushing dissent. Sadly, drone strikes and the U.S.-run prison at Guan-tanamo are not historical references; they are current crimes committed by our own government. Now, National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden, as far as we know, is stranded in the Moscow airport, his U.S passport canceled. He has admitted to revealing a vast, global surveillance regime that has outraged citizens and governments the world over. He joins in his plight imprisoned whistle-blower Bradley Manning, who faces life in prison, being court-mar-tialed now for leaking the largest trove of classified documents in U.S. history. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has now spent more than a year cooped up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. These three are central to the exposure of some of the most undemocratic prac-tices of the U.S. government. In closing his Rochester, N.Y., speech, Douglass sounded an optimistic note, saying, Notwithstanding the dark pic-ture I have this day presented, of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country.Ž Grass-roots justice move-ments are the hope, the beacon, the force that will save this country.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESSuper snifferThe most incredible thing about your dog may be his nose BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIs there anything a dog cant use his nose to figure out? Dogs have long been used to sniff out escaped cons and missing children (think bloodhounds), dinner (think span-iels, retrievers and hounds), and even truffles (think poodles). But in recent years, trainers have come up with all kinds of new ways to use a dogs extraordinary sense of smell. Here are a few you may know „ and a few more we bet you didnt: Q Drugs. Dogs can be trained to sniff out all kinds of illegal drugs, finding them not only on people but also in massive cargo containers, long-haul trucks and school lockers. Q Plant matter. Since fresh fruits and vegetables can carry insects and diseases that have the potential to cause great damage to agriculture, dogs are used to detect foodstuffs in the luggage of travelers coming through customs. Dogs are also used to sniff out invasive plants in fields so they can be eradi-cated before they take hold. Q Insects. Termites? No problem. Dogs are also being used to detect the resurgence of bedbugs in big cities. Q Mold. Its not just the mold that bedevils homeowners, but also the mold that puts the vines at wineries at risk from the spread of disease. Q Explosives. Meetings of important public officials would be hard to imag-ine without the diligent work of bomb-sniffing dogs. To take it a bit further, dogs are even being taught to sniff out cellphones that could be used to deto-nate a bomb. Q Cows in heat. A lot of money depends on being able to artificially inseminate a cow without wasting time guessing when shes ready. While a bull could tell, hes not always available, as his contribution usually arrives on the scene frozen. A dog can tell when the cow is most fertile, although its a good bet the dog couldnt care less. Q Cancer. While cancer detection is still in the trial stage, its looking pretty promising that dogs can spot a malignancy. Someday your doctor may order up a lab testŽ and mean Labrador! Q Chemicals. Dogs have been known to look for items as varied as mercury and the components of potentially pirated DVDs. Theyve also been used to detect the pres-ence of fire accelerants in cases where arson is suspected. While most of us tend to think scent work is the near-exclusive province of a handful of breeds „ bloodhounds, German shepherds and maybe a Labrador retriever here and there „ in fact, a wide range of breeds and mixes is trained to detect various scents. Because of their fine noses and friendly dispositions, beagles are used to work airports by the U.S. Depart-ment of Agriculture, and any manner of mixed breeds „ lucky dogs pulled from shelters „ have been used for other kinds of detection work. Because all dogs have keen noses filled with many more scent receptors than we humans have, a dogs future doing nose work relies more on enthusi-asm, reliability and trainability than on the common canine ability to tell one scent from another. Q In addition to explosives, dog noses have been used to seek out ever ything from tumors to counterfeit DVDs. >> Marci is a 1-year-old spayed Carolina mix breed. She is a silly, wiggly little girl. She is very energetic. She walks well on a leash and enjoys handling and contact. She will look for attention. She gets very excited and tries to climb in your lap. Marci seems anxious and nervous in new surround-ings, but given time and patience she will be ne. She can get startled easily at noises or sudden movements, but overall is very sweet and friendly. Her favorite toy is a chewy and she enjoys playing with them. >> Tommy is a 10-month-old neutered short hair. He is a bit timid and a slightly nervous boy, but only because he is in a strange place. He is a very playful guy. It may take him some time to get to the point where he's comfort-able enough to show his true personal-ity, but he's a fun and lovable kitty. He prefers to be more of an independent and steady companion. He is ready to go to a great home where he can adjust to new surround-ings, be loved and give love in return.

With the gift, 100 percent of students at Pioneer Park Ele-mentary School in Belle Glade will have the chance to expe-rience STEAMŽ „ Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math „ an initiative commit-ted to keeping arts integration active in Palm Beach County classrooms with opportunities for students to see live arts and cultural performances, often for the first time, according to a prepared statement by the council. Dollars from the grant will also enable each member of the schools faculty the opportunity to work alongside `teach-ing artists in their classrooms to inte-grate art into traditional curriculum. In the past, similar programs sponsored by the Cultural Council have included pair-ing artists with Social Studies teachers and incorporating visual and perfor-mance art projects into the classroom to enhance learning for 390 students at various schools throughout Palm Beach County in the Building Learning Through Communities Grant.Ž Additionally, 200 participating artists who live and work in Palm Beach County will have access to workforce development training in business skills, and the chance to exhibit their original art pieces in the councils Uniquely Palm Beach Store. We appreciate that JP Morgan Chase Foundation is partnering with us to enhance learning experiences for children through the arts,Ž said Rena Blades, council president and CEO, in the statement. Its rewarding to assist in bringing art to children because we know that it can foster a life-long enjoy-ment and participation in the arts and cultural community.Ž The Cultural Council is Palm Beach Countys official arts agency and serves non-profit cultural organizations and professional artists throughout the county.

six years. His route has him running back and forth from Lake Worth to the Broward County line. He understands that some people see I-95 as a nightmare „ and Floridas Turn-pike as paradise. Others see Turnpike tolls as highway robbery and I-95 as reality. But drivers fall asleep, text and drive drunk on both roads. Sitting down with his supervisor, discussing which road to drive, the Road Rangers riddle it this way: Some people like to drive a truck. Some people like to drive a convertible. You tell me, which ones safer?Ž Public opinion seems to frame the Turnpike as safe and I-95 as a speedway. Many allegiant I-95 drivers in Palm Beach County think of driving the Turnpike as drinking decaf coffee, while the Turnpike devout think of I-95 as a pavement panic attack. One road appears to run on nerve and amphetamines; the other seems a Sun-day drive on Quaalude-time. Consensus comments repeat themselves: Yes, the Turnpike is safer. It should be. It cost money. Yes, the Turnpike is safer, but its too far west to drive. You take it for a long haul, a family trip, its good for tourists. Yes, the Turnpike is safer, but if theres a crash, youre stuck. I-95 appears to be an efficient evil you deal with. It may have more accidents, but hey, if its not you, there are plenty of lanes to get by. County crash statistics, speeding tickets and pounds of trash found along these highways support such widespread beliefs. There are more than six times as many car crashes on I-95 as there are on the Turn-pike. State troopers give out more than five times as many speeding tickets on I-95 than they do on the Turnpike. Yet in the minds of many, the conundrum remains: Do I take the Turnpike or 95?Ž Mr. Martinez knows every crack in the I-95 Palm Beach pavement like the lines in the palm of his hand. He knows the name of every exit by heart. He can recall an exit number in the snap of a finger. His truck comes equipped with a broom, a shovel, jumper cables, flares, wire c utters, a tire jack, an air compressor „ enough to get someone up and running again. During one of his eight-hour shifts, he tends to make 20-plus stops. He fixes flat tires, jump-starts dead batteries, gives water to the broken-down thirsty. He says its good to be the savior. I get lots of hugs and kisses. I get called lots of names, You are my angel. My God, you are my saint,Ž Mr. Martinez says. When somebody zooms by me and honks at me, I think thats probably somebody I helped out the day before, two days ago. I wave even though I dont know who they are.Ž Every day brings a reason to set out the orange cones, flash the lights on his truck and face the oncoming traffic, all the while wishing more people would abide by the state move-over law, and give him a lane rather than inches. People take Road Rangers for granted,Ž says Luis Luna, Road Ranger supervisor. They think all we do is fix flat tires and give out gas.Ž Road Rangers must now run the tag number before giving out gas to verify the driver has not been registered as an abuser of fuel. We do a lot more than that. There are countless things we do that are not known.Ž Mr. Luna remembers one incident where a Road Ranger intervened during a suicide attempt: There was a young kid kneeling down in the shoulder of the road, waiting to run out into traffic. He had had an argument with his girlfriend. She kicked him out of the house. He said he didnt have a reason to be here anymore. The Road Ranger talked to him, convinced him the best thing about breaking up is making up. The kid said, Youre right, and walked off the interstate.Ž Regardless the road, driving I-95 or Floridas Turnpike, Mr. Luna feels any last remaining sense of road etiquette has been lost. Everybody has pretty much taken on the attitude, My day is more important, let me get by,Ž he says. Before people used to let you in, not speed up, block you off ƒ Theres no compassion whatsoever anymore, no courtesy, no nothing, its all gone.Ž I-95 and the Turnpike parallel each other down Floridas Southeast coast. Johann Hoffend, WPTV Channel 5 aerial reporter/photographer, looks down on these roads from an altitude of 1,000 feet. Mr. Hoffend has been up in the chopper, reporting traf-fic for more than 10 years. He has more than 20 years experience reporting news and traffic on radio. Mr. Hoffend says the stories of a traffic reporter are horrific, because theyre crashes. He has seen the cab of a tractor-trailer dangling off an I-95 overpass and he has seen a collision between a semi and a cement mixer shut down Floridas Turnpike. I dont even want to start to tell you what Ive seen,Ž he says. The camera I have looks right down onto the ground. I could tell you what kind of shirt you have on if I had to. Its not a good sight some-times.Ž From his vantage, Mr. Hoffend can see where the skid marks start, where the vehicle lost control, where it hit the wall, where it flipped, how the accident hap-pened. Viewing the two expressways side-by-side, Mr. Hoffend says Floridas Turn-pike looks safer: Fewer cars, less accidents, more safety. But proximity has him driving up I-95 from his Boynton Beach home to the helicopter awaiting him at Palm Beach International Airport every morning. It reminds me to pay attention,Ž Mr. Hoffend says of his profession. Definitely look left, right, then look back left again. I know its a crazy old saying they taught us when we were kids, but its one we should live by.Ž Other lessons-to-live-by his profession reinforces: Speed does kill,Ž Use your safety belt,Ž Wear your helmet.Ž Mr. Hoffend renders the difference in traffic volume between the two roadways as a 60/40 split. He sees 60 percent of the traffic burning up I-95 and 40 percent of the traffic cruising down the Turnpike. Besides locale, he cant help but wonder if the difference in traffic shines light on an economic divide. Its got to be the money. No doubt about it. It adds up,Ž he says. A dollar here, a dollar there, every single day ƒ If your job includes pay for tolls, thats a good thing. If not, its a luxury ƒ You pay for the privilege to ride on it. Its a privilege to ride where there are not as many cars.Ž A look at the numbers warrants the introduction of Stephen Reich, a program director at the Center for Urban Trans-portation Research at the University of South Florida. He can translate the engi-neer speakŽ of statistics provided by the Florida Department of Transportation and Floridas Turnpike Enterprise. Mr. Reich says he grew up in an age where cars gave kids the freedom to explore. Now kids have Google Earth. But physical mobility continues to mesmerize ROADFrom page 1 Speeders speed, whereverRecords from the Palm Beach County Clerk show that 3,594 speeding tickets were issued on the county’s stretch of T urnpike in 2012.

Mr. Reich. After spending nearly 20 years in the planning and preservation of trans-portation services through state agencies, he has spent the last 12 years trying to use the horsepower of academia to help state agencies solve transportation problems. It can be very difficult to compare apples-to-apples and say something defin-itive about the patterns of two different highways, especially when ones a toll highway and ones a non-toll highway,Ž Mr. Reich forewarns. You can ask the right questions, but the answers are going to come in the data format that they have.Ž In 2011, the most recent statistics available, a total of 281 crashes were reported along the stretch of Floridas Turnpike in Palm Beach County. Two of these crashes were fatal. The total number of crashes reported on the Palm Beach County strip of I-95 for the same year was 1,817 crashes. Of these crashes, the FDOT reports 13 fatalities and 1,158 injuries. Now for the traffic component: While the Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) varies between major interchanges, offi-cials from Floridas Turnpike Enterprise calculate that the Turnpike moves 63,400 vehicles in an average day through Palm Beach County. The FDOT does not calculate I-95 traffic the same way. They look at traffic from interchange to interchange but do not tally a county total. For instance, the FDOT estimates 207,000 vehicles move from the Broward County line to Pal-metto Park Road on an average day. But the FDOT estimates only 66,000 vehicles move from Indiantown Road to the Mar-tin County line on an average day. Mr. Reich says it would be redundant to add up all of the traffic volume from the exits in between, because some of those 66,000 vehicles are likely to be part of the 207,000 crowd. Suffice it to say even the I-95 interchange posting the least amount of traffic in Palm Beach still beats the county total on the Turnpike. When engineers throw all these figures together, the Turnpike wins. Palm Beach County comes out with an overall crash rate of 0.46 crashes per million vehicle miles traveled on the Turnpike versus an overall crash rate of 0.77 crash-es per million vehicle miles traveled on I-95. Toll roads are built on the premise that you need to offer some sort of service superior to the free alternative in order to have people want to use your road,Ž Mr. Reich says. Time savings and reliability, thats what youre getting for paying those tolls.Ž And one of the determining factors to yield reliability would be safety, arguably expressed by way of a low crash rate. So yes, the consensus voice has it right. The Turnpike should be safer because you pay for it. Do you know what people value even more than the ultimate amount of time it will take to get somewhere?Ž Mr. Reich asks. Knowing what that number will be. The predictability of the trip is more important to most people than the amount of time it takes.Ž If driving on I-95 seems predictably erratic, then drivers might just switch over to the Turnpike. Traffics moving. Travels predictable. People pay for it. Once you replace toll booths with electronic collection, peoples propensity to use a toll road increases even more,Ž Mr. Reich says. If you had to pay for every text on the spot, you would text a lot less. Its the same with tolls. If its not in your face every time you dont think, Oh, jeez. Do I have three quarters in my pocket to get through this toll?Ž Toll revenues for the Turnpike system generated a little more than $608 million dollars in 2012. The Turnpike system incorporates several roadways in sev-eral parts of the state including the Polk Parkway, Sawgrass Expressway, Veterans Expressway and Suncoast Parkway. Turn-pike officials say they cannot single out maintenance expenditures for Palm Beach County but figure they spend $20,000 on average per lane mile to operate the Turn-pike System. Such expenditures involve mowing maintenance, guardrail replace-ment, service plaza security, etc. FDOT calculates I-95 maintenance expenditures to be $12,793 per lane mile within Palm Beach County. I-95 mainte-nance expenses are paid for by the gas tax. Federal gas taxes collect 18 cents per gallon, not all of it stays in Florida. State gas taxes collect 20 cents per gallon, not all of it stays in any given county. Palm Beach County gas taxes collect 20 cents per gal-lon which goes directly to the county and its incorporated municipalities. You pay for 95 if you use it or not,Ž Mr. Reich says. Thinking back on crash statistics and safety, Mr. Reich reasons its safer to drive I-95 or the Turnpike over U.S. 1 or any other road interspersed with traffic lights and side streets. It doesnt seem intuitive that a 70-mph road would be safer than a 30-mph road, but it is,Ž he says, because lack of potential conflict has been built into interstate design. But interstate design also lends way to speed. Records from the Palm Beach County Clerk show 3,594 speeding tickets were issued on the countys stretch of Turnpike in 2012. The number of speed-ing tickets issued on I-95 for the countys chunk of road over the same chunk of time: 20,998 tickets. Lieutenant Tim Frith has been with the Florida Highway Patrol for 31 years and spent 23 years in Palm Beach County. He will not deem one road better than the other. Says locals are lucky to have them both. It just so happens there are more people on I-95, which means there are more state troopers, which means more tickets. Driving is about a persons driving ability,Ž not about whether you take the Turnpike or I-95, says Lt. Frith. Accidents dont occur because of design,Ž meaning design of the road. Ninety-nine percent of crashes are due to driver error. Its their fault, not the roads fault.Ž John Sessa takes the blame for his interstate crash. He has been in five motorcycle accidents and wrecked three bikes. One of his accidents was on I-95 by Blue Heron Boulevard. He was cutting between cars. He looked over his right shoulder. It was too late to brake. An 18-wheeler was changing lanes. Mr. Sessa hit the back of the semitruck. He and his bike went down. He slid across three lanes, from gravel to grass, before he let go of his bike. Its burned into my memory cells,Ž he says. It was February 1995. The begin-ning of February, because traffic was busy and restaurants were busy.Ž Eight years later, Mr. Sessa drives I-95 every day from his lunch shift at Prime in Delray Beach to his dinner shift at Cal-laros Steak House in Lake Worth. When-ever he sees a motorcycle, he remembers his accident, his bruised shoulder, his road rash and how he prayed he would not get run over again and again as he slid across three lanes of interstate traffic. If the Turnpike was closer to the city, I would take the Turnpike every day,Ž says Mr. Sessa, who no longer rides a motor-cycle but drives a Honda Accord. Im more conscious, more aware of whos around me now. I always check my mir-rors. I dont drive fast anymore. But you never know on 95, its like NASCAR. People cutting in-and-out of traffic with no directional. Its not like the Turnpike, where you can put on cruise control and just go.Ž Lt. Frith remembers another I-95 accident where a steel plate smashed through a car windshield, killing the woman who was sitting in the passenger seat. Fol-lowing the accident, Lt. Frith spent six months tracking debris found along the interstate. The FDOT reports maintenance crews remove approximately 1,643 pounds of litter and debris from I-95 each day, Mon-day through Friday. Road Rangers logged 1,798 stops for road-debris removals in Palm Beach County in 2012. Types of debris routinely removed include tires and tire tread, bumpers, fenders, axels, beds, chairs, couches, per-sonal trash bags, roofing material, nails, ladders, buckets, wood, cardboard, baby diapers, shoes, shirts, hats, old tools, concrete blocks, steel bars, beer cans, liquor bottles, computers, cell phones, fax machines, televisions, glass, wash-ing machines, dryers, umbrellas, live and dead animals, advertising signs, fence material, paint cans, wigs, underwear, magazines, drug pipes and plastic bottles. Turnpike management recorded 8,324 road-debris removals in Palm Beach County in 2012. Although an analysis of debris was not available, manage-ment reported the majority of removals involved tire treads. Mr. Martinez was one of those Road Rangers running out in the middle of the interstate, picking up debris. He says you have to know how to time it. You have to give yourself enough time to run 10 steps out and run 10 steps back. Get in. Get out,Ž he says. He has seen deaths on the interstate. He says the emotion used to stay with him a couple days, but after so many years, you learn to let it go right there on the road. You look at it. You feel sorry for the amount of time you stay there,Ž he says. But when you take off, you let it go.Ž With interstate realities in his face every day, he says the same thing to driv-ers that he says to his coworkers: Be safe, man. Its a good thing to go home.Ž Q all these fig y n ance expenses are paid f or by the g as as tax. Fe d era l gas taxes co ll ect 18 cents pe r r g allon, not all of it stays in n F lorida.

Its a g o o Florida’ s T urnpike and I-95 each run roughly 45 miles from end-to-end of Palm Beach County. T o place the expressways somewhat on a level playing eld, researchers say you must look at lane miles. One mile of highway eight lanes wide converts to eight lane miles. One mile of highway 10 lanes wide converts to 10 lane miles. If you’re thinking the Palm Beach sections of I-95 and the T urnpike don’t swell to 10 lanes, think northbound and southbound lanes. The T urnpike translates into 238 lane miles within the Palm Beach corridor I-95 recalibrates into 432 lane miles traversing the same space.

The Indiantown Road stretch to th e Martin County line posts the least amount of daily traf c with an AADT of 66,000 vehicles. This shows that even the low end of traf c on I-95 still beats the county total of traf c on the T urnpike, (AADT 63,400 vehicles). Q Is the Turnpik e faster? Pr etty muc hThe FDOT grades I-95 interchanges on levels of ser vice. These grades correlate to a report card. An A grade means excellent. An F grade means failing. The busy stretch from Hypoluxo Road to Lantana Road on I-95 received an E grade in 2011, FDOT jargon for: “Operation at its capacity. V ehicles are closely spaced within the traf c stream and there are virtually no useable gaps to maneuver .” The Turnpike looks at average operational speeds as a better measure for characterizing roadway congestion. Reports show 99 percent of traf c to be traveling at 69 mph at 7:45 a.m. at the Boynton Beach Boulevard exit near Hypoluxo Road. Traf c’s moving. Travel’ s predictable. People pay for it.

Featured on Oprah, the Dr. Oz Show, and used by stars Sandra Bullock, Drew Barry-more and Kelly Ripa, MCFR perfectly tight-ens and firms your skin pro-viding a smooth-er younger look.MCFR has gained prominence in a very short time, chiefly because it is innovative and non-invasive. The procedure works by sending small high-frequency electrical impulses through the skin, which stimulates the facial muscles and the superficial skin tissue creating better muscle tone and trigger-ing new cell production and collagen and elastin formation. After just a few sessions youll notice significantly tighter skin and the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles and a younger look. Treatments are typically 60 minutes, and cost about $195 per session. Since the process is pain free, and is without side effects its no surprise that MCFR has become a popular alternative to surgery.

July 2 – 26 Focusing on a wide-range of cancer screenings, diagnosis and treatment, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the community link in a proactive way to stay healthy from a complex disease that can strike anyone at any time. New data from the American Cancer Society points toward a decline in the two words that no patient or fam-ily member wants to hear in a group together, colorectal and cancer. In the United States, colorectal cancer is the third-most common cancer with 102,480 new cases diagnosed already in 2013. Fortunately for patients and their fam-ilies, the death rate from colorectal cancer has been on a decline for two decades, due to early screenings and improved treatments. With lifes many milestones, including turning the age of 50, it is also time for a colorectal screening. Cancer screenings and the recent improvements made in treatments result in saving lives in our community,Ž said Larry Coomes, CEO at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Our Oncol-ogy department devotes their focus to the patient and their family every step of the way from diagnosis, to our quest to get the patient healthy.Ž When it comes to colorectal screenings, there are five different screening tests available to detect polyps and cancer. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is also a source for information on cervical cancer screenings, diagnosis of breast cancer and colon cancer. At the hospital, the medical staff also helps patients with tips for coping with cancer, the importance of screenings and employs a workforce of profession-als who know the answers to questions about myths and have the facts about cancer. Every year in the United States, upwards of 12,000 women learn they have cervical cancer. Unfortunately, 4,000 women die from the disease each year. The good news is that these numbers have dropped over the past 40 years, largely due to more women having regular Pap tests to check for cervical cancer. The American Col-lege of Obstetricians and Gynecolo-gists (ACOG) issued recommendations for cervical cancer screenings. Those guidelines state that women should begin screening at the age of 21 and that screenings should occur every two years. After age 30, any woman who has three consecutive negative tests can begin screening every three years. Knowing the correct time to get a mammogram can also help as an impor-tant tool for a woman in the early detection of breast cancer. According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, women ages 50 to 74 should have biennial mammography screen-ings. The American Cancer Society sug-gests 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.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 NEWS A15 Have you heard the recent story that stirred controversy on national talk show circuits, and circulated wildly throughout cyberspace? Well, apparently, one woman was so incensed that a group of men were brag-ging about their infidelities for all to hear on a transit train, she couldnt take it any more.Ž In her mind, their behavior was so egregious and so disrespectful to their wives, she decided it was her right to take matters into her own hands. She discreet-ly took a picture of the biggest offender on her smart phone and posted it on Facebook with the following caption: If this is your husband, I have endured a two hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh, please repost ƒŽ Understandably, this passenger may have found the conversation she over-heard to be offensive. She may have looked forward to a quiet ride and their boasting may have been intrusive. She may have been incensed that these men seemingly showed total disregard to their families. Some of us may applaud her actions, believing the man in question got just what he deserved. But, quite frankly, if we consider the repercussions, her behav-ior was reckless, with troubling „ and potentially far-reaching „ implications. It is clear that she did not know the men on the train. Nor did she know whether any of the tales they told were, in fact, true. As we know, people are prone to embellish stories for effect. She obviously knew nothing about their families, and probably hadnt considered the fallout that would come from publicly disclosing the story. If, the man was, in fact, married, how would his family be impacted? As innocent bystanders, fam-ily members would have been publicly humiliated as well. So, I ask you. Does this woman have the right to publicly shame this unidenti-fied man in this manner? Is it her right to assume vigilante moral superiority by taking matters into her own hands? Need-less to say, the topic has aroused the ire of many on both sides of the issue. It wasnt so long ago we were continually reminded to show judgment and restraint when sending emails or when posting our latest tidbits on social media sites. We were cautioned to be ever mind-ful that our words could be misunder-stood and used against us. There were further warnings that astute Human Resource managers or authority figures might be privy to post-ed online shenanigans that were intended solely for friends, and that we could face serious consequences. Of course, this advice is still well-founded. However, this story highlights a far more jarring danger: If we receive back-lash for posting an indiscreet message, we are personally paying a price for a lapse in judgment. But, now, its no lon-ger sufficient to self-moniter our online activity. We must be especially vigilant and mindful, that at any moment, any-where, an undisclosed person can snap our picture (or take videos) and broad-cast it for all to see. It is further in their power to distort the truth, out of context, to exaggerate improprieties. Historically, many societies looked to public shamings as effective deterrents to crimes. Hapless perpetrators would be locked in pillories in the public square, subjected to the smug jeers of indig-nant onlookers. In modern times, Inter-net mugshot postings humiliate offenders with the same intent. In many instances, social media sites are becoming the new courts of public opinion. Online chat rooms can become hotbeds of controversy as strangers opine as authorities on other peoples busi-ness. The innocent targets, though, are not given their day in courtŽ to defend themselves. Frankly, these venues, while perhaps effective, can be quite distasteful and bring out the worst in everyone involved. The offender will be forever impacted by the humiliation and may suffer personal and financial fallout of a magnitude far in excess of the crimes. Onlookers often compromise their sense of decency as they publicly smear the wrongdoer. Sadly, what we often have is vigilante mob jus-tice, where the accused has been denied his rights. As we are reminded daily in the news, advances in modern technology have compromised our ability to orchestrate and control our private information. The above story heightens that we live in an age where our private concerns can be posted indiscriminately without our knowledge. While we often have limited control of others actions, we certainly dont want to unwittingly participate in helping them to malign us.

Q Minx Boren new president of Executive Women of the Palm BeachesSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ jeannette SHOWALTER CFA showalter@ww fsyst ems.com MONEY & INVESTINGLift the yolk off business in order to increase the GDPIn the next two to three years, it will be quite interesting to see how (and if) the U.S. will create economic growth sufficient to decrease its unemployment to a level of 6 percent. Unemployment of 6 percent is not an arbitrary objective; it is the level specified by the Federal Reserve needed before the agency will reverse many of its aggressive monetary actions. It is widely held that, to reduce unemployment, gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, must grow at 2.5 percent or better. To reduce high and persistent levels of unemployment, such as we have, GDP needs growth in the 3-3.5 per-cent range. How is the U.S. economic health? The GDPs most recent annualized growth rate for first quarter 2013 was released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis on June 26. It was an anemic 1.8 percent. This is the sec-ond of two downward revisions by the BEA as the first estimate was 2.5 percent and the first revision was 2.4 percent. As Bill Gross pointed out in his June letter to investors titled Wounded Heart,Ž ƒ its been five yearsƒ and the real economy has not once over a 12-month period of time grown faster than 2.5 percent.Ž Unquestionably, the U.S. economy is slowing. Unquestionably, many of the initial estimates of GDP growth are pie in the sky and are subsequently lowered. How is U.S. unemployment faring? As reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at the end of June, the national rate is currently 7.6 percent. It is unchanged from Mays level and remains in the 7 percent range for the past 10 months despite aggressive monetary policy that has been broadened and deep-ened over the past 10 months. Otherwise, we would be in worse shape. Unemployment peaked at 10.2 percent in October 2009. Seemingly, there has been progress „ except that the decline in unem-ployment likely overstates the recovery in jobs. The decline in the past nine months is partly attributable to the decrease in the number of people counted as unemployed. Some unemployed people have given up in their search for a job and are no longer included in the unemployed count. So next time you hear there has been a decrease in unemployment, consider that reality might be that there have been dropouts from the unemployed list. Such decreases in the size of the employment base points to a loss of U.S. productivity and lower national earned income levels (because the dropoutsŽ are not gainfully employed.) So, back to the original question, how will GDP grow at rates better than 2.5 percent to get unemployment to 6 percent and lower? Short answer: It needs to come from the business sector, not from the government or consumption, etc.? Take a look at the core equation: GDP= C+I+G+ NX. The four components are: C for consumption; I for business investment; G for government spending; and X for net exports. Consumption accounts for a whop-ping 72 percent of GDP; government spend-ing 20 percent; business investment 14 per-cent and, as the U.S. is a net importer, our net exports is a negative 6 percent and a drag on GDP. GDP grows if, on a net basis, there is growth in the sum of the components. But not all spending (consumption versus business versus government versus foreign buyers of our goods) is the same. Government expenditures include social payments (unemployment compensation, Medicare, Medicaid, Medicaid and Social Security) and special make workŽ programs e.g., census hiring. This spending adds no productive capacity nor does it create a more highly trained work force. Government spending has little multiplier effect on the U.S. economic system. (However, IF the gov-ernment spending was for capital, infrastruc-ture improvements or even education that results in higher-tiered engineers with skills equal or exceeding talent offered overseas, then the governments spending would have added to the productive capacity of the U.S. A look at the GDP components individually suggests that 3.5 percent growth in GDP; we are at 1.8 percent and facing headwinds. First, even if consumers do buy more stuff, their buying is not an investment in our economy „ it is just more stuff they own. Second, the U.S. government is already under sequestration cuts, with more budget cuts coming this summer and more coming in the fall. Third, the recent rise in the dollar hurts our competitive position in exporting and whatever advantage we had seems to be diminishing under Japans recent forced cur-rency devaluation. The only meaningful hope the U.S. has for truly returning to a strong, vibrant econ-omy lies with business investment, which is impeded by higher taxation and increased government regulation. Business investment is the only vehicle at this juncture that can create meaningful GDP growth as it creates the multiplier effect.Ž How so? For example, a business buys equipment or builds a plant, then it hires people to make stuffŽ with the equipment in the plant; and then the newly employed spend money on consumer stuff.Ž This makes for sustainable growth in GDP. There is no way of getting away from the GDP equation; it is what it is.The non-financial sector of corporate America is highly capable of finding its way out of this low-growth hole. Despite such economic prognosis for the U.S., our elected officials cannot stop bickering and are unwill-ing to find common ground. Whether they hail from the far left or far right, until they get their heads in the game, we will likely contin-ue to stumble along with sub-par growth.

Expansive outdoor kitchens are sought-after features in South Florida market It seems like each spring and summer season my family spends more time din-ing outdoors and enjoying having groups of friends and family at our home where we can dine outside while the kids play and swim in the pool. When my husband and I decided to install our pool several years ago, we skipped the summer kitch-en. We invested in comfortable outdoor furnishings and a nice grill, but decided to wait on the summer kitchen. Fast forward six years, and outdoor summer kitchens have now become out-door entertainment areas. They are not only equipped with summer kitchens for cooking, but include fireplaces, fire pits, retractable screens, outdoor TVs and movie screens, cooling systems and much, much more. There are outdoor appliances such as dishwashers and pizza ovens available, in addition to an abundance of choices for outdoor fur-nishings. Outdoor mosquito systems are also becoming more popular. It consists of a misting system attached to the house to create a bug-free area. For many of my clients, this is not necessarily the first item on their list when looking at homes. Location is always important, then price and size of homes. But I have been taking note lately that outdoor entertainment areas have not only become a priority for buyers, they have become much more popular in general. Even if it is not a priority for buyers, it becomes one when they see the flexibility of the space being used. I am currently working with a client whose No. 1 priority, after location and price point, is a large outdoor entertainment area that is either already complete or one where they can build what they are looking for. This means there must be enough room for seating areas, din-ing areas, a cooking area, large pool and patio in addition to a fireplace. Many of the custom homes have most of these features and they are incorporating this in to the home design, so the indoor areas become a part of the outdoor areas. Currently, I have a gorgeous home listed for sale that has sliding doors that pocket completely into the wall for a seamless transition. The outdoor space has wood beams that match the interior wood beams and the limestone floor-ing makes the transition from indoor to outdoor feel as if it is still a part of the home. From the indoor kitchen and family room, you can see the perfect-ly appointed fireplace against the rear patio. There are also outdoor furnishings that coordinate with the indoor furnish-ings. This is a large selling point of this home or any home in South Florida. When I brought my client to this home, he spent about 30 minutes out-doors, just admiring the space. Since the elevation of the outdoor space matched the interiors, it has steps leading down to the pool area where there are surround sound speakers, an oversized pool and spa and additional grounds for lounging and entertaining. There are even phantom screens that disappear at the touch of a butt on into the framework of the outdoor lanai. The actual cooking space has a large serv-ing counter, barbecue grill, refrigerator, range top and vented hood. Needless to say, he loved it. It was exactly what he was looking for to enter-tain friends and family, but he ended up not purchasing this particular home because his wife did not want such a large interior for the amount of time they would be spending in Florida. We decided to move on to smaller homes that seemed manageable for his wife, but with enough space outside that they could entertain. As we continue to look, my client now has a vision of what he and his family will use in their outdoor area. We viewed several homes, each with unique outdoor spaces. Some of these areas can cost approximately $30,000 while others may reach over $100,000. Although this space is not included in a listing when the interior square feet is quoted, it does weigh heavily on the value of the home and also in the appraisal of a home. In fact, my client is more than willing to pay a higher price for an outdoor area that is already complete, rather than to have to build it himself. As for this client, we are still looking for a home at the right price, in the loca-tion they are interested in, and for that other feature „ a spectacular outdoor area. They will be flying back to the area mid-August or sooner if something comes on the market. I am looking for-ward to finding them the perfect home and celebrating outdoors when they ulti-mately satisfy their dream!

But in past centuries the table might have held a candlestick with a handle to carry to the bedroom for light. It also had to store items that acted as the toilets of the day. The potty, a large round but squat bowl, served as the toilet seat. A large, tall bowl with a cover was used to hold waste until morning. Covered sections of the table held and hid everything, so the bedside tableŽ really was a commode. But only the wealthy and royalty had such luxu-rious equipment. Most people had an outhouse near the back of the yard. The flush toilet is older than most people think. Leonardo da Vinci designed a flush toilet, but it was never made and people thought the idea was as ridicu-lous as another one of his ideas, the air-plane. The first flushing toilet was made by Sir John Harrington for the Queen of England in 1596. It was improved in 1775 by Alexander Cummings, and soon the water closetŽ made of porcelain was installed in homes in a special room. Although theyre no longer needed, antique commodes still sell well and are used as bedside tables with storage for books. They can be found in many styles. The drawer-table combination is useful and copies ignore original use. Q: When I was a patient at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor in 1970, I met one of Jimmy Hoffas lieuten-ants.Ž We became friends and when he found out I was a truck driver and a member of the Teamsters Union, he gave me a gold-filled Zippo pocket lighter. It has a small plaque on the front with the Teamsters logo and the words, A gift from James R. Hoffa,Ž with Hoffas signature. The lighter is pretty banged up because I was a smoker and showed off the lighter as often as possible. Whats my lighter worth today? A: Jimmy Hoffa, born in Indiana in 1913, became an organizer for the International Broth-erhood of Teamsters in 1932. He was the unions president from 1958 to 1971, but was convicted of racketeering in 1964 and was sent to prison in 1967. As part of a plea agree-ment, he was released in 1971, nine years early, but was barred from taking part in union activities. He disappeared outside a suburban Detroit restaurant in 1975 and was declared dead in 1983. His body has never been found. Your lighter was one of many that the union had made as gifts, so its not rare and it was never used by Hoffa himself. But its collectible and would probably sell for more than $60. Q: I have a clear blue glass object 6 inches long and shaped like a bowling pin. It was given to me by my mother-in-law about 60 years ago. She called it a sock darner.Ž If its meant for something else, Id like to know. Id also like to know its value. A: A sock darner is a tool that used to be found in most homes. It was designed to put inside a sock to help repair holes. It provided a solid rounded surface that held the sock firmly so holes could be sewn with tight and even stitches that blended in with the rest of the sock. Also called darning eggs, they were made of glass or wood. Most glass sock darners were whimsies that were made at the end of the day by glass workers for their own use, though production darners also were made. They can be found made of all kinds of glass-aqua, nailsea, spatter, peachblow and aurene. A blown-glass sock darner like yours sells for $60 to about $150. Gold or blue aurene sock darners by Steuben can sell for $400.Q: I have a heavy metal belt buckle with a raised picture of a flying turkey and the words Wild TurkeyŽ in big letters on the front. Underneath that in smaller letters it reads, 101 proof (8) eight years old.Ž On the back it reads, TM Repro-duced by Arrangement with Austin Nich-ols New York, New York 1974 Bergamot Brass Works.Ž Is it worth anything?A: Your buckle was made in 1974 as a promotional item for the Austin Nichols Distillery for its Wild Turkey brand of bourbon. The buckle was made by Bergamot Brass Works, founded in Fox River Grove, Ill., in 1970. The company later moved to Lake Geneva, Wis., and then to Darien, Wis., in 1974. Its first products were belt buckles and hair ornaments. Later it made b uttons, lapel pins, money clips, paperweights, plaques and more. Bergamot also pat-ented a belt buckle with a bottle opener on the back. Your buckle is often found for sale online. Value: About $10. Tip: When moving a chest of drawers or a cabinet with doors a long distance, tape the drawers and doors shut with masking tape, or tie them shut with rope.

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY A wide opening in the manicured ficus hedge framing the narrow length of the cul-de-sac reveals little more than the faade of a handsome, two-story carriage house enlivened by a riot of crimson bou-gainvilleas clambering on crisp white trellises. Tall hedges provide the privacy and serenity sought by those who dwell therein. At last count more than 20 species raised their shimmering fronds into the sky. Completely restored within the last few years, the impressive results are a credit to the owners talented landscape design. There are six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-baths in the main house. In the guesthouse are two bedrooms, three full baths, a kitchen and a large living room. The guesthouse is graced with a veranda, furnished with casual lounge chairs. This home at 102 Flagler Drive, Palm Beach, encompasses more than 13,000 square feet of living space, with grounds of 32,000 square feet. An open loggia is a step down from its adjoining glass-enclosed counterpart; both face the ravishing gardens that spread beyond. The home also includes a generator with full system backup. The oldest portion of the home, built in 1924, was designed by Palm Beach architect Marion Syms Wyeth. Interestingly, it has a basement, a rarity in South Florida, even rarer on a barrier island. The liv-ing room is of that time and although it is immense, around 1,000 square feet, the glow of its natural pine paneling, low ceiling and intimate seating arrange-ments make it quite hospitable and welcoming. Upstairs are a number of spacious bedrooms ready for visiting family and friends. The master suite occu-pies the second floor with French doors opening up to a spacious veranda, which overlooks the expansive gardens leading up to the newly built pool. Next to the master suite is a marvelous sitting room. This special home sits next door to the famed Breakers Hotel and golf course and is just steps from the sparkling azure waters of the sea. Fite Shavell & Associates lists the home at $11,750,000. The agent is Sonja Abrahamsen-Stevens, 561-573-9198, sabraham-sen@fiteshavell.com.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 A25 FLORIDA WEEKLY Jupiter girl gets chance at ‘Tomorrow’ on Broadway BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.com To be, or not to be. That is the question posed in Hamlet.Ž But the prince of Denmark had nothing on Coriolanus.Ž The play, based on the life of Roman leader Caius Marcius Coriolanus, is set in ancient times. Kevin Crawford and Kermit Christman, leaders of the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festivals Shakespeare by the Sea XXIII, have made it timeless, setting it in another dimension. Its the first time Ive tackled the play, which Ive been interested in from a dis-tance for a long time. It really was Kermits original idea. I mean, we would never do anything Elizabethan or Jacobean „ no tights and codpiece „ but I wasnt really sure what to do with it,Ž said the plays director, Dr. Crawford, who also plays the title character in the play, which runs July 11-14 and 18-21 at Carlin Parks Seabreeze Amphitheater in Jupiter. Palm Beach Shakespeare looks beyond the Earth for “Coriolanus”OTHERWORLDLY BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.com SEE FESTIVAL, A26 X The Impossible DreamŽ may be the theme song from Man of La Mancha.Ž But impossibleŽ never was part of the equation for actress/singer Alix Paige. Ms. Paige, who graduated from the Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, comes home to Palm Beach County to star as Aldonza in Palm Beach Drama-works concert production of the musi-cal inspired by Miguel de Cervantess 17th-century masterpiece Don Quixote.Ž The produc-tion, which also stars William Michals, runs through July 21. Oscar Cheda, Ken Clement, Natalia Coego, Rodrigo De la Rosa, Nick Duck-art, Joshua Grosso, Barry Tarallo and Cassandra Zepeda round out the cast. In the musical, which follows the antics of Don Juan, Ms. Paige plays his love interest. Its great to come home and have my whole family see it,Ž she said by phone. It has been a fabulous experience.Ž Clive Cholerton, former artistic director at Boca Ratons late, great Caldwell Theatre, will lead this performance. Its really nice to be doing these concert things. It was something I had so much passion for at Caldwell,Ž he said in May. I cant be more excited this summer.Ž The same could be said for Ms. Paige, who lives in New York City. This is my first time working down in Florida. The only other times Ive performed down here professionally was national tours, I Love a PianoŽ and Cabaret.Ž In Cabaret,Ž she understudied the female roles and starred as Sally Bowles when the show came to the Kravis Center.

She will cover four roles. I dont know if Im going to be Annie, but Im a standby for Tessie, July, Duffy, Pepper and possibly one more,Ž she said during an interview at the Maltz Jupiter Theatres Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts.

TRANQUILITY AWAITS ON THE GULF COAST. CoriolanusŽ is the tale of an uprising in a place they call RomeŽ with the titular military genius fighting his enemies all the while finding himself hated and betrayed by those he fights to protect. But that place called Rome could be set at any time, past or future. I think in our minds eye in wrestling with a vision of the play, it started getting more into the future and not to sound borderline Battlestar Galac-tica or anything like that, Kermits idea tapped into my idea of dystopian futures, whether they be Earthbound or elsewhere,Ž Dr. Crawford said. But dont expect to see clones of your favorite sci-fi characters. Nobodys walking around wearing Star Trek uniforms. Its always this awkward sweater that everybodys wearing, this tight-fitting sweater with some kind of insignia on it. Were not doing that. We just had to be some-where else,Ž he said. So thats the world were setting it in, a place called Rome.Ž Thats fitting.After all, the very 16thand 17thcentury Shakespeare was writing about events that happened well before the Christian era, and indeed, well before his own time. But there is a great universal theme to this story. Now more than ever, I seem to be focusing on the collective. And the world, being in the condition it is, it seems that all states, human and oth-erwise, are under the pressure of the collective. Were all feeling the same thing. No one is more unique than anyone else,Ž Mr. Christman said. So when we started thinking about this, using the collective media, if you will. I just merely shopped and said, Wow. People are doing a lot of outer space. Its com-ing back, all these movies, so I revisited a lot of films, Oblivion, all the way back down to Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey, and thought this might be the way to present it. Weve left Earth; were in another place.Ž He visited the NASA website and found an echo-planet beyond our solar system, Kepler Object of Interest 107, that is similar to Earth. To stage the play in such a place, they kept the setting simple, with only a monolithic symbol standing at the center of the stage. It stands alone as visual art as you come around into the park,Ž Mr. Christ-man said. Costumes consist of T-shirts and cargo pants, much as Tom Cruise wore in OblivionŽ and the characters wore in Alien.Ž Its different and unique and were trying to do something extraordinary because it is the 23rd year, and then Kevin said, Let me run with it.Ž By rights, the men say CoriolanusŽ should be in the canon of William Shakespeares most frequently per-formed works. But it is not; perhaps the length of the play keeps it from being more approachable. After all, it is the Bards fourth longest play. Dr. Crawford pared it down to about two hours, all the better for an outdoor production. Both men have are founding members of the festival, even though Mr. Craw-ford moved away some years ago to teach English and theater at Reinhardt College in Georgia. As for Mr. Christ-man, when he is not in Florida planning the Shakespeare festival, he is at work on television and film projects across the country. This is simple, he says, and Shakespeare plays do not require a lot of fuss, at least not onstage. Said Mr. Christman: They come out, they enjoy our plays but they know were going to do something peculiar, so we found our peculiar this year, and its turning out to be for me person-ally, incredibly satisfying because I am attracted to those theater pieces that bring nothing to the space, except the lights go down, the lights go up and theres an actor, and then we start.Ž Q FESTIVALFrom page A25 >>What: Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Coriolanus”>>When: 6:30 p.m. July 11-14 and July 18-21 >>Where: Carlin Park’s Seabreeze Amphitheater, State Road A1A just south of Indiantown Road, Jupiter>>Cost: Free, though donations are accepted >>Info: pbshakespeare.org in the know COURTESY PHOTO Kevin Christman stars as the title character and directs Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival’s “Coriolanus.” A26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY

I love that I got this much time with my family.Ž But onstage, she gets to experience a relationship of a different sort. I have always loved this role. I fell in love with it when I had to play it last summer. It was interesting because I had to play Eliza in My Fair Lady.Ž She, too, is rough around the edges, just as Aldonza is. Theyre the same in that theyre ingnues. But I never play them as the same bright-eyed girls. This is something gritty to play. Eliza and Aldonza have similar qualities,Ž she said. But Aldonza starts down in the dirt, and does not allow herself to dream as Eliza does. Don Quixote allows her to dream that she is more than she is. Shes a complex character because shes been wronged her whole life,Ž Ms. Paige said. Maybe Ms. Paige loves the role because it is so unlike herself. I have a wonderful life and a wonderful family. This character is the oppo-site,Ž she said. That loving family helped nudge Ms. Paige onto the path she now follows. There were some major influences. One was my grandfather, who was an incredible singer. He had a beautiful bass-baritone, which is where I think I get my deep voice from. He was never able to pursue it and never classically trained,Ž she said. He was a survivor of the Holocaust and immigrated here after the war. He had to get a job imme-diately and couldnt pursue the arts. Still, his voice was heard as substitute cantor at Temple Beth El in West Palm Beach. In fact, it was Norman Brody, cantor at the temple, who pushed Ms. Paige along in her career. He heard my voice at 5 years old and said to me, You have to be in my choir. ƒ he would make me sing with my grandfather,Ž she said. Ive been singing at the temple for years and years and years.Ž She continued performing at school.I was very involved in the performing arts department at Benjamin „ dance, acting, singing, so I did it all,Ž she said. Once again, an adult inspired her.Sara Salivar was head of the drama department and she gave me some great roles,Ž including Sally Bowles in Caba-ret,Ž she said. Senior year was when I knew I wanted to do it professionally.Ž And when she came to the Kravis Center in Cabaret,Ž her grandfather was in the audience. The show is very close to my heart, particularly with my familys history of the war. Its very personal for me, that show,Ž she said. But the show she is performing at Dramaworks also is special to Ms. Paige, and it doesnt hurt that Man of La ManchaŽ has a memorable score, thanks to its creators, Dale Wasserman, Joe Darion and Mitch Leigh. I love the journey of the character through these songs. It has one of the most beautiful scores of any musical ever written. I would do this show a mil-lion times if I could,Ž she said. Spending the time in Palm Beach County means Ms. Paige also has time for something else: preparing for her wedding next year. And her fianc?Hes from New Orleans and is a director/writer/producer. He understands everything I go through in the industry. We both have a lot going on right now,Ž she said. A quick glance at Ms. Paiges Facebook and web pages reveals a tight schedule of performances, including concerts. I do a lot of jazz. Again, Im attracted to these big torch songs that have a sadness attached to them. I think its because I dont have a lot to be sad about in my own life,Ž she said. Ive done two one-woman shows. The first was about my dating life in New York, and that was a really fun show. It was about the trials and tribulations of a single girl in New York. Do jazz songs and musical theater songs that sound jazzy.Ž And that second show?The second show is a tribute to my role models of jazz, Ella Fitzger-ald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington. Ive had a lot of suc-cess with those shows. I love perform-ing in front of a band,Ž she said. Add to that an audience.Ms. Paiges grandfather died the year she appeared in Cabaret.Ž But the rest of the family will be at Dramaworks. My cousins, my aunt, my brother and sister-in-law. I have plenty of people that are going to come to this show,Ž she said. And one suspects her grandfather will be there, too, at least in spirit.

But it is hard to choose a favorite character. I like Annie because she is always optimistic, but I also like Molly. I love all the roles and they each have personali-ties and characteristics that make them different,Ž she said. Skye and her mom, Liz, will be living in New York. They have rented an apart-ment in Times Square. Its very tiny, but it looks very nice,Ž Skye said of the apartment. Of Skyes work in the show, Ms. Rowe said, Being a standby is a major respon-sibility. Shes covering all of these dif-ferent parts and will go on at any time.Ž She will have a six-month contract, good until January. Its all but certain that she will appear onstage. And she has gotten there through her own determination. She has been working toward this since she walked out of kindergarten one day and said, Mom, Im going to go to Broadway. She set her sights on it, she decided and she has been working toward it ever since,Ž said Mrs. Fried-man. That flurry of activity, those lights and the buzz of an audience are part of what attracted Skye to performing. I just get this feeling and it makes me happy and I get excited. I love making other people happy, too. Its just the best feeling in the world,Ž she said. Q SKYEFrom page A25 A30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 11-17, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35The Dish: Roasted Turkey Cobb Salad The Place: Berry Fresh Caf, Winn-Dixie Plaza, 3755 Military Trail, Jupiter; 401-5693 or www.berryfreshcafe.biz The Price: $9.95 The Details: This salad was a feast of freshness. It had a nice assortment of mixed greens and sprouts, as well as slices of avocado, grape tomatoes, bacon, hard-boiled eggs and plenty of Gorgonzola. The raw green beans would have been better slightly blanched, but they lent a crisp counterpoint to the rich cheeses and avocado. Corn-bread served on the side was sweet and tasty, almost like dessert, espe-cially with the pineapple butter that accompanied it. All we can say is, berry nice. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Though he is a Florida native who enjoys being active in his spare time through golf, going to the beach and fishing, Tommy Nevill is just as active when he is working in the kitchen. Sometimes Ill wear a pedometer when Im working around the restau-rant and on average Ill walk 3.3 miles a night,Ž says Tommy Nevill, the chef and proprietor of III Forks Steakhouse in Palm Beach Gardens. At age 15, Mr. Nevill worked at Boston Market, where he says he gained an instant love for the culinary industry just from spitting chickens. Originally interested in baking and pastry, Mr. Nevill attended the Disney Culinary Institute as well as Florida State Uni-versity, where he earned a bachelors degree in business finance and hospi-tality. In 2000, Mr. Nevill says he was fortunate to get an internship with Roys, where he experienced working front and back of the house operations „ something he had never done before. Mr. Nevill says that fine dining took a front seat to his love for baking and pastries. Once youve found your first job, it is all about the training,Ž he says. Its about finding the absolute best place that can give you the most experience in your first two years.Ž Seeking experience, Mr. Nevill transferred to Dallas, where he worked at Pappas Brothers Steakhouse. It was there at Pappas Brothers, when Mr. Nevill became a level one sommelier and where he says he found a new pas-sion for food and wine pairing. Pappas was the highest level of dining I had ever experienced,Ž he says. They were so open to educating and they really taught me a lot of lessons that I carry with me everyday.Ž After working with Pappas for 2 years, Mr. Nevill left the company in 2008 to join Consolidated Restaurant Operations, where he worked as the executive chef for Silver Fox Steak-house, a sister restaurant to III Forks. He soon moved to III Forks steakhouse, where he opened multiple locations in cities such as Houston, Texas, Boca Raton, Jacksonville, Hallandale and Chicago. There is nothing more satisfying than teaching and training other chefs,Ž he says. It is a great feeling to see a restaurant transform and become suc-cessful.Ž Mr. Nevill says that his favorite pick from the menu would be the Bone-in Ribeye with a side of sweet potato hash, six cheese potatoes, or the off-the-cob cream corn. We understand here that people choose to dine with us whether it be for a birthday celebration, a graduation or anniversary, and they want the best,Ž he says. I am blessed with the best staff here, and we provide the best to make you want to come back again.Ž Name: Tommy Nevill Age: 31 Original hometown: Orlando Restaurant: III Forks Steakhouse, 4645 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 360-3660 Mission: Our mission here is to exceed all expectations and figure out what is going to bring customers back and why. We want to create raving fans and have our customers walk out our door with a great memory of a great experience.Ž Cuisine: Fine-dining steakhouse What is your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I enjoy being in the front and the back of the restaurant, so I usu-ally wear a Johnston and Murphy dress shoe; theyre comfortable and appropri-ate. Sometimes just wearing clogs while working isnt as nearly comfortable as you would like them to be.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Sweets, for sure! Anything dessert-related, whether it be cupcakes, pastries, or pies, I love it all.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? Well, I think school is a necessary component, more on the business side then on the hospitality and culinary side. I feel like with culinary you can be trained under many great chefs at great restaurants to understand it, but understanding the business side of the industry really comes from a four-year degree. You need to have a passion in this industry in order to make it.Ž Q In the kitchen with...Tommy Nevill, III Forks Steakhouse BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Fetes for Bastille DaySCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Sommelier Melanie Ober will celebrate Bastille Day a few days early with a selection of French wines at her monthly wine tasting and pair-ing on July 11 at The Backyard Bar.
