EDGEDr. Michael Gleiber uses new minimally invasive surgery to get back patients on their feet within a dayBACK IN 64, DURING HIS AIR Force days, Airman 2nd class Charlie Brower sometimes worked on tanker planes, the aircraft used for in-flight refueling. Manys the time he clambered across the wings of those workhorse planes, lugging a hose filled with de-icing fluid. Which is what he was doing one frigid day when he slid off a wing … SMACK! … onto his butt. And ever since then,Ž he says, I always had lower back pain.Ž It hurt when he walked. It hurt when he lifted. But most vexing, it hurt when he climbed into, and especially out of, the old Piper Cub hes kept at North County Airport so he could soar into the lofty skies across and around South Florida every chance I get,Ž he says. Meaning when-ever pain didnt ground him. The pain ceased on March 13. It was a Wednesday, he remembers with a smile and glance over at Michael Gleiber, the spinal surgeon who allowed him to straighten up and fly right. The two men sit maybe six feet apart in Dr. Gleibers Jupiter office on this recent Tuesday morning, in a small, square room. Three-plus months have passed since the day that nurses at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center wheeled Mr. Brower into BY MARY JANE FINESpecial to Florida Weekly COURTESY PHOTOSince the surgery, Charlie Brower has been able to fly his Piper without pain.SEE SPINAL, A22 X CUTTING WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 Vol. III, No. 41  FREE Taste of the NortheastChowder Heads in Jupiter offers real New England seafood.

Just before the eureka moment, Karen and Herb Baum were walk-ing through another place, entirely unim-pressed. Karen Baum smiles. She loves telling this part of the story: The realtor said, Ive got a foreclosure across the street. She didnt even have the key. We looked in the win-dows.

They collided then they parted company, one dead and one breathing. I have nothing to say about the promoters of tobacco products designed for addicts and laced with carcinogens, who sell their crap because its legal and they can; or about the makers of food products designed for children and laced with sug-ars, who sell their crap because its legal and they can. I have nothing to say about anything that purports to be just business, not personal.Ž I have nothing to say about the makers of assault weapons who promote a vision of American governments as tyrants, and who portray American citizens in black and white as one of only two things: either as potential predators on the one hand, or as the besieged and bold who buy the products of these arms manu-facturers to defend themselves against tyrants and predators, on the other hand. I have nothing to say about smallor large-unit military commanders who abandon their point men, or write off their lost platoons, companies, battalions, regiments or divisions. Or who system-atically order their prisoners tortured or executed. Or who retire from service careers and go on to become arms sellers hawking weapons to faux democracies and fake benevolent dictators. I have nothing to say about preachers or public servants who grow wealthy in their work. I have nothing to say about corporate leaders who manage thousands of moder-ately paid employees while carrying away immense personal wealth, just because they can. They take millions in salaries and stock options, they expect the praise of peers and stockholders, and they cheer-lead the system that lets them grow rich while the people who helped them dont, wont and cant. So obviously I have nothing to say about the successful individuals who „ lets say by virtue of sweat and smarts „ appear on the Forbes list of the 100 highest paid CEOs of 2012. Theres Big Johnny Hammergren of McKesson (No. 1, with his 2012 pay listed at $131.19 million); Dickie Kinder of Kind-er Morgan (No. 4, $60.94 million); Stevie Hemley of UnitedHealth Group (No. 8, $48.83 million); Jamie Dimon of JP Mor-gan Chase & Co. (No. 12, $41.99 million); Louie Camilleri of Phillip Morris Inter-national (No. 25, $32.75 million); Ireney Rosenfeld of Kraft Foods (No. 40, the highest paid corporate woman, at $25.37 million); Mikey Duke of Walmart Stores (No. 46, $23.15 million); and finally poor little Dickie Templeton of Texas Instru-ments (No. 100, $15.36 million). Not to mention (because I have nothing to say about them) those who didnt make the list, like Gracia Martore at Gan-net Company Inc., who took in a mere $8.45 million in 2012. Some of them are great people. Theyve reduced their annual salaries to $1. Or to $80,000. Or to $100,000, while their work-a-longs work along. But they also exercised stock options and other benefits, so their real pay rock-eted out of the solar system, topping off somewhere in the Andromeda galaxy. A couple of Forbes journalists were sitting around talking about this on a video-cast, trying like hell to look unimpressed and innocent, when one of them, Scott DeCarlo, applauded. If shareholders are getting a return, why fault a guy for getting paid?Ž asked Mr. DeCarlo. The thing is, a government or a company, either one, is not a government or a company; its you and me and Trayvon and George and Johnny and Dickie and Stevie and Jamie and Louie and Ireney and Gracia. And every single one of them and all of us have choices „ every day, all the time, and each time we meet like those con-verging trains, with any one other soul. We have choices in language, tone, man-ner and level of respect. We can choose to tolerate, to dominate, to converse or to argue. To manipulate, or not to manipu-late. To shoot first or to ask questions first „ of others and of ourselves. In short, we can choose to define troop welfare and the mission as inseparable responsibilities „ or not. But I have nothing to say about any of that, except this: Business, like life, is always personal. And it always comes with consequences. Mara Verhayden-Hilliard, who heads the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund in Washington ( or, sug-gested as much when she sent me the Langston Hughes poem, Kids who die.Ž Let me leave you with a few lines to brand into your hide „ lines about choices and consequences.This is for the kids who die Black and White For kids will die certainly.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYThis year’s best-kept secret: The next generation of community radioA microphone and a radio transmitter in the hands of a community organizer imparts power, which some liken to the life-changing impact when humans first tamed fire. Thats why the prospect of 1,000 new community radio stations in the United States, for which the Fed-eral Communications Commission will accept applications this October, is so vital and urgent. Workers toiling in the hot fields of south-central Florida, near the isolated town of Immokalee, were enduring con-ditions that U.S. Attorney Doug Molloy called slavery, plain and simple.Ž Some worked from dawn to dusk, under the watch of armed guards, earning only $20 a week. Twenty years ago, they began organizing, forming the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Ten years later, working with the Philadelphia-based nonprofit Prometheus Radio Project, the workers started their own radio sta-tion, Radio Consciencia, to serve the farmworker community and inform, mobilize and help the struggling work-ers forge better lives. As the largest media corporations on the planet have been consolidating dur-ing the past two decades, putting the power of the media in fewer hands, there has been a largely unreported flowering of small, local media outlets. An essential component of this sector is community radio, stations that have emerged from the Low-Power FM (LPFM) radio move-ment. This October, community groups in the U.S. will have a once-in-a-genera-tion opportunity to apply to the FCC for an LPFM radio-station license. But the mainstream media are hardly reporting on this critical development. This is a historic opportunity for communities all over the country to have a voice over their airwaves,Ž Jeff Rousset, national organizer of the Pro-metheus Radio Project, told me on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour. The airwaves are supposed to belong to the public. This is a chance for groups to actually own and control their own media outlets.Ž The Prometheus Radio Project formed in 1998. It was named after the Greek mythological hero who first gave fire to humans to make their lives more bearable. Back in the 1980s and 90s, pirateŽ radio stations, unlicensed by the FCC, were launched in communities across the U.S. by people frustrated with the failures of the commercial and public media system, which was increasingly closed to the communities and seeming-ly beholden to corporate underwriters and interest groups. Harassed for their broadcasting efforts by federal agents, the pirates formed Prometheus, intent on changing the federal laws and open-ing the radio dial to a new generation of noncommercial, community-based sta-tions. After 15 years of organizing, they won. Rousset said, Were going to turn static into sound and use that to amplify peoples voices all over the country.Ž Across the U.S. from Immokalee, farmworkers in rural Woodburn, Ore., were fighting against oppressive conditions similar to the tomato and watermelon pickers in Florida. The largest Latino organization in Oregon, PCUN, Pine-ros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (in English, the Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United), founded an LPFM radio station, Radio Movimiento (Movement Radio). PCUNs president, Ramon Ramirez, explained: Weve been able to use Radio Movimiento: La Voz del Pueblo ... not only to organize farmworkers, but also to provide infor-mation. ... For example, were broadcast-ing in four indigenous languages from Mexico and Central America, and were giving those folks a voice in the com-munity that they never had.Ž When I was covering the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, Mexico, in early 1994, I attended the first press con-ference held by the Zapatista military commanders, including Subcomandante Marcos and Comandante Ramona. They called it specifically for Mexican radio journalists. Radio, Marcos said, was the most accessible form of mass commu-nication. Even the poorest village had at least one radio around which people could gather, he said. Social-media platforms like Twitter and Facebook have been rightly cred-ited with supporting social movements like the Arab Spring in recent years. But the fact remains that most people in the U.S. receive their news from traditional sources, especially radio and television, more so in groups separated by the digital divideŽ „ the poor, immigrants and other marginalized communities. LPFM applications must be filed in October, and significant advanced plan-ning is required by any applicant group that hopes to succeed. The Oregon workers knew nothing about radio. Pro-metheus recruited 300 media activists from around the world to help get them on the air with a radio barn raisingŽ where volunteers literally built the sta-tion from the ground up. The airwaves are a public treasure, and we have to take them back. The Prometheus Radio Project is waiting to hear from you. 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. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONAn Obamacare surrender c h R m  amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Washington is riven by conflict and deep-seated division. It is rare indeed when both sides can agree on anything consequential. Therefore it is incredibly heartening that there is now bipartisan agreement that the implementation of Obamacare is a mess. Republicans have long maintained this, but now the Obama administration has lent its implicit assent with its aston-ishing decision to delay by a year the laws employer mandate. This is what the administration calls, via a blog post by the Treasury Departments assistant secretary for tax policy announcing the decision, Continuing to Implement the ACA in a Careful, Thoughtful Manner.Ž It can call it whatever it wants, but there is no hiding the embarrassment of a climb-down on a high-profile feature of President Barack Obamas signature initiative. The purported reason for the delay is incompetence. The administrations story is that it simply couldnt find a way to implement the insurance reporting requirements on employers in the time frame set out in the law. Merely as a side-effect, it had to put off the mandate and the $2,000-per-employee fine on employers with more than 50 employees who dont offer health cov-erage. This just happens to be the mandate that is causing howls of pain from busi-nesses and creating perverse incentives for them to limit their hiring or to hire part-time rather than full-time employ-ees. And it just happens that 2015 „ the new target for implementation „ is after a midterm election year rather than during. Explaining the decision, Obama apparatchik Valerie Jarrett issued a stalwart communique from Central Command that should take an honored place in the annals of blatant, unembarrassed hackery. Her message was: All is well. Nothing to see here. Yes, maybe weve delayed implementation of the (hilariously euphemistic) employer responsibility payments,Ž aka fines, but dont worry, its full steam aheadŽ with the health-care exchanges this October. As we implement this law,Ž Jarrett explained, we have and will continue to make changes as needed.Ž But the law is supposed to be the law, not optional suggestions from Congress. In Jarretts view, Obamacare is little more than a warrant for the Obama administration to decide how it wants to run the Ameri-can health-care system, one executive decision at a time. Obamacare was sold on the twin, flagrantly false promises that you could keep the insurance you have and the prices for insurance would drop. But there will be significant dumping of employees onto the exchanges, and the latest indication of the laws price shock came via The Wall Street Journal, which reported that healthy consumers could see insurance rates double or even triple when they look for individual coverage.Ž The delay of the employer mandate may create political pressure to delay the more important individual man-date as well, on grounds that ordinary people shouldnt face the fines for not buying government-mandated coverage that businesses have been spared. Cer-tainly, the maneuver on the employer mandate is a painful concession and a signal of weakness. Now everyone can agree: Implementation of the presi-dents proudest achievement is trou-bled, at best. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Call for a complimentary one-hour Empowering Women Consultation and Kit.561.345.1007 BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickThe joke in dog training these days is that when you get two trainers together, the only thing theyll agree on is that a third trainer is doing it wrong. But theres something else that the fiercest advocate of a no-punishment training approach will find in com-mon with the trainer who believes that a dogs actions need consequenc-es: Theyll both agree that your dog is likely not getting enough exercise, and that sedentary lives are at the root of a lot of canine behavior problems. Look at the big, active dogs we adore, such as the Labrador retriever and the German shepherd. You dont have to go far down the popularity list to find other active breeds, such as the always-in-motion dog commonly known as the Jack Russell terrier. Fac-tor in the countless retriever, shep-herd, husky, hound and terrier mixes, and you have a lot of dogs whose genetics have prepared them to work nonstop for hours at a time. Instead, many of them spend their lives in small, boring backyards. To burn off all that natural energy, theyre busy barking, digging and chewing. If youre thinking of getting a dog, think very seriously about what breed or mix you want and whether you can provide an active dog with the exer-cise he needs. If you cant honestly say that your dog will get 30 minutes of heart-thumping aerobic exercise at least three to four days a week „ daily is better „ then you really ought to reconsider those breeds and mixes. Fortunately, there are alternatives. All dogs love and need their exercise, but not all dogs will misbehave if they dont get a ton of it. Consider dogs of breeds or mixes that are content with less exercise. For large dogs, consider adopting a retired racing greyhound, a dog known as the 30 mph couch potato.Ž Many of the pug-nosed breeds are also touted for their couch-potato ways, but beware: thats because theyre often born with com-promised respiratory systems, with health problems to match. Many small breeds are easy in the exercise department, and theyre well worth considering because its not as difficult to exercise a small dog with short legs. A Yorkie, pug or corgi can get good exercise in a small yard or on a brisk walk, but remember that even short legs wont get you off the hook with the most active and tough-minded breeds of terrier. These dogs need as much regular cardio as their bigger, more powerful relatives. What if you already have an active breed of dog? I know the answer to this one, having shared my life with retrievers from high-drive hunting lines for almost 20 years. Keeping them exercised is a big part of my life. Theres always a tennis ball in my truck, and I know all the safe and legal places to throw it, especially those that involve bodies of water. So get out that leash. Find that tennis ball. Scope out the nearest pond. And make some time to get your dog moving a half-hour a day, every day. Your dog will be happier and healthi-er, and so will you. As for those behavior problems, youll find theyre easier to fix if your dog isnt frantically looking for a place to direct all that energy. Ask your vet-erinarian for a trainer or behaviorist who can help.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Karen Baum made decorating it her mission. An interior designer couldnt have done better. So what used to be called Barefoot House,Ž ocean-side in Hobe Sound, was renamed The Baum Shelter,Ž a favorite pun. Its a second home „ for par-ties and get-togethers,Ž Karen Baum explains. Their actual residence, on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter, is also home to their cats and dogs „ a lot of cats and dogs,Ž she says, declining to cite the exact number. No four-legged creature will inhabit The Baum Shelter,Ž which replaced another house they used to own, one in Juno Beach, the one she didnt like. No privacy. Too close to neighbors who had a habit of sunbathing topless. I said, I hate that house,Ž she says, repeating what she told her husband. I said, If we sell it, I promise I will find you something you love even more.Ž That was a promise she kept. Oh boy, did she. He comes here every day to smoke his cigar and sit out there,Ž she says, a sweep of her arm taking in the paved patio that overlooks a private beach longer than a football field. He adores it!Ž Whats not to adore?The two-story wood-frame house, with its wooden jalousies, dates back to 1937, something the Baums learned when work-men replacing rotted wood uncovered orig-inal studs inscribed with the date and the names of the earlier workers. When the home had gone on the market in 2009, it had been in the same family for 50 years. The rear wall of the original brick fireplace proudly bears the soot from years past. Marine-themed toss cushions line a pair of original built-in window benches. The living and dining rooms still boast their original oak floors, as most walls and ceilings do old Florida cypress. The Baums replaced the pantry-bar floor with a handsome dark wood, its wood-top counters with white Caesar-stone. Each of the four bedrooms and all those tiny little bathroomsŽ (four upstairs, two down) has its own beach-themed character, with fish-print bedspreads and tabletop coral pieces, starfish-edged bath-mats and shell-framed mirrors. And everywhere „ everywhere „ stark white walls act as the canvas for Karen Baums artistic hand: chairs and sofas, paintings and throw rugs, accents and bathroom tile in blues and greens, as befits a beach house. I knew the colors I wanted in the house,Ž she says. I try to do interesting things.Ž She succeeds. One of those interesting things hangs from the cathedral ceiling, her pice de rsistance,Ž as she calls it „ a trio of milk glass chandeliers, hung at different heights, their swirly branches hinting at seaweed. Then theres the long zebrawood kitchen table that easily seats eight. And the upright, carved-wood alli-gator sporting one of Herb Baums cigars clamped between its teeth. Oceanfront picture windows frame the outdoors, so that the freeform swimming pool appears like a David Hockney paint-ing, a hammock stretched between palm trees like a tropical still-life. Online, Karen Baum bought a quartet of striking sea-creature paintings by Petr Ldin, a young Russian artist. On a trip to Italy, she acquired a blue-and-green Venetian glass sculpture of stylized waves and, while she was at it, enough glass-ware to outfit all the shelves in both bar and kitchen. Two charming paintings „ a palm tree and a wide-eyed tiger cat „ by almost-12-year-old granddaughter Lexi, occupy place-of-pride wall space. A carved mermaid hangs suspended in the bedroom set aside for Lexis visits, its bosom hidden beneath an orange-and-white bikini top because, Karen Baum says, I bought this, but she was very indecent.Ž Karen and Herb Baum met several decades ago on a blind date in Philadel-phia, where she taught third and fifth grades and special education classes, and he was an executive with Campbell Soup. Her son and daughter from an earlier marriage were grade-school age then; both, now in their 40s, live nearby. Herb Baums career „ with Quaker State motor oil and Hasbro Toys, among the CEO and presidential positions „ took the family to Texas and Rhode Island and Arizona before his retirement led them to South Florida. My husband loves water views,Ž Karen Baum says. And he loves the house. She misses all the buying that filled it. But the builder,Ž she says, he just got divorced, and he said, Would you help me re-decorate? I said, Using your money? Id be happy to.Ž Q HOUSEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSThe house offers ocean views; its private beach is more than 300 feet long. The rear wall of the brick fireplace, below, bears soot from years past. Bottom, palm trees grace the yard.

Military Trail, West Palm Beach. Marshall Foundation Board Chair John A. Marshall said in a prepared statement, It is particularly important to outline Sea Level Rise challenges to current science and engineering graduates because they are the ones who will inherit consequenc-es of what previous generations left in their wake. Certainly, more consideration of the consequences of sea level rise is needed in long-range planning by local, county, state and federal governments, including educating the public about the probability of a markedly different coastal landscape in the years ahead. ƒ Our goal is to bring more awareness to sea level rise and adaptations, such as Everglades Restoration, that can help mitigate these effects.Ž Some of the 45 expert speakers who will participate in a series of presenta-tions are John Englander, oceanographer and author of High Tide on Man Street; Stan Bronson, executive director of the Florida Earth Foundation; Camille Coley, assistant vice president for research at Florida Atlantic University; Dr. Pat Glea-son, PhD., former member of the South Florida Water Management District Gov-erning Board and past president of the Grassy Waters Preserve; Anne Hender-son, an engineer working with FAU on a NASA-funded curriculum on Climate Sci-ence Investigations; Gary Hines, senior vice president of development at the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County; Bonnie Lazar, president of the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches; Jim Murley, executive director of the South Florida Regional Planning Council; Jayantha Obeysekera, technical lead for climate change and sea level rise investigations for the South Florida Water Management District; Rep.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 NEWS A13 Paradise Lost When you tell people you live in paradise, they do not expect hunger and homelessness to be part of the picture; and, the truth be told, neither do we. Much time and money has gone into creating the many versions of picture postcards sent to the unfortunate not similarly blessed to call Palm Beach County their home. We cannot help but be a little smug; and, if we are especially zealous in showing off all the amenities, visitors leave with the impression life is lived here as a full-time vacation. Few can resist such a possibility. Our overt enthusiasm helped woo the two out of three residents in South Florida that relocated here from somewhere else. The developers and the weather did the rest. Big changes have accumulated at a terrifying pace yet escaped our notice for long time. That is because it was change hard to see all at once. The county occupies a vast geography, an area about the size of Rhode Island. If you reside in one of 29 municipali-ties, time, convenience and preference anchor you to its retail and social uni-verse. We planned it that way. Abun-dance, seemingly without end, enabled proliferation without restraint. The lack of restraint is catching up. The issues we couldnt see before have now multiplied so much they cant be missed. The countys population totals more than 1.2 million, a people-mass big enough to manufacture its own brand of climate changeŽ „ but it is climate change measured on a human scale, affecting lives throughout the county. There is a creeping onset of and deterioration in the countys quality of life affecting thou-sands of families caught up in a growing cycle of homelessness and hunger. Florida is the foreclosure capital of the country. Palm Beach County is at the top of the Florida list. According to state sources, 3 million more homes are heading for foreclo-sure over the next three years. The FIUs Metropolitan Center just published a policy paper and report, House Hunters in South Florida: Where Will Our Workers Live?Ž Every employer and elected official in the county should have it on their must readŽ list. This report dispels the notion we are almost out of the woods on the housing recov-ery; in fact, quite the opposite. With rent rising, wages stagnant, and transportation costs increasing, families are increasingly cost burdened,Ž spend-ing more than 30 percent of their annual income on paying rent. The bigger the slice of income for this purpose, the closer the precipice of making a devils choice: Pay the rent and your trans-portation cost, and you will not have enough to make it to the next paycheck. Families juggle the repercussions of this math by sacrificing on the fundamentals that sustain a decent standard of living. Food insecurity „ hunger „ is a direct consequence of having too little to cover the financial gap. A fundamental measure of the quality of life is how well we do as a community in putting food on the table and having affordable housing for those who need it. You might think that it is no contest here. Million dollar mansions and the trappings of wealth are highly conspicu-ous and omnipresent in the county. We grow enormous amounts of fruit and vegetables in an agricultural region pro-ducing more than $1 billion in agricul-tural products annually. Nonetheless, affordable housing is in extremely short supply; and C.R.O.S. Ministries report-ed in 2011 that nearly 50,000 people received emergency food, nearly half of them children. The estimate today is that we need 35 million more pounds of food to meet the growing demand. Some good things are happening. With support from area funders, churches, synagogues, community organizations and private individuals, C.R.O.S. and multiple partner agencies have united to address the growing problem of hunger. Together, they created the Palm Beach County Food Bank (PBC Food Bank). The new agency is as a home-grown, county-wide nonprofit organi-zation with the mission to res-cue, collect and distribute food to more than 100 agencies that operate daily to feed the hungry. The PBC Food Bank along with its partner agencies feeds tens of thousands of hungry children, families and senior citizens, from Boca Raton to Tequesta and west to Belle Glade and Pahokee. El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center, Temple Beth Am, and Cross Community Church are among the partners locally. And affordable housing? Community leaders know what needs to be done; but we havent yet found the public will to do it.

A14 WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEPerspectiveQ In May, a jury in Tampa decided that Ralph Wald, 70, was not guilty of murdering a 32-year-old man he had shot in the back three times. He said he had caught the man having sex with his wife (successfully claiming that he thought the man was a dangerous intruder in his home). However, Marissa Alexander, 34, of Jacksonville, was sentenced last year to 20 years in prison for aggravated assaultŽ for merely firing a warning shot during an altercation with her estranged husband. The man, Rico Gray, is a serial domestic abuser and admitted that he was threaten-ing Ms. Alexander that night and that she never actually pointed her gun directly at him. However, the judge denied Ms. Alexander use of the stand your groundŽ defense because she had declined to sim-ply walk away from Mr. Gray. Q PrioritiesAt a June hearing, a Philadelphia judge became so exasperated at defendant Rob-ert Williams seeming cluelessness about his need to keep his probation appoint-ments that she ordered him to take etique tteŽ classes before returning to court. Williams, a rap singer and budding music mogul still under court supervi-sion on gun and drug charges from 2008, cavalierly defended his inability to find time for his probation officer by explain-ing that he was a busy man, working with seven artists,Ž with a demanding travel schedule, and uninhibitedly using social media (creating posts that, allegedly, led to threats against the probation officer). (Williams, of course, was accompanied to court by a several-man entourage.) Q IroniesQ An atheist churchŽ in Lake Charles, La., run by lapsed Pentecostal Jerry DeWitt, conducts periodic services with many of the trappings expected by the pious „ except for the need to believe in a supreme being. Such churchesŽ (reported The New York Times and Washington Post in coincidental stories the same day in June) can help soothe the biologi-calŽ needs for survival and avoidance of loneliness by congregational rituals (such as celebrating a sabbath) and in helping find meaning in something other than (oneself).Ž For example, atheist Sigfried Gold praised a rigorous prayer routineŽ (beseeching a vivid goddess he createdŽ) in overcoming his weight problem.Q In June, fighting in the Syrian civil war spread to its west, threatening archae-ological digs and already recovered arti-facts near the ancient city of Hamoukar „ which is the site of historys earliest known urban warfare (about 5,500 years ago).Q The business website Quartz reported in June that a popular consumer item in North Koreas perhaps-improving econ-omy is the refrigerator, made in China and increasingly available as a reward to stellar performers among civil servants and other elites. The appliances, however, cannot reliably store food because the countrys electric grid is so frequently offline and are mostly just status symbols. One item Quartz says often gets displayed in the refrigerator: books.Q Robert Dugan, 47, a full-time patrolman for the Delaware County (Pa.) Park Police, was charged in June with illegally impersonating a police officer. Accord-ing to authorities in Brookhaven, Pa., Mr. Dugan had accosted a woman double-parked outside her home to pressure her into moving the car, but she refused. Mr. Dugan allegedly claimed he was an Upland Borough police officer (with authority to write parking citations and make arrests, which he did not actually have). Q The litigious societyShower rooms in health clubs are slippery enough, but Marc Moskowitz, 66, cited the one at the Bally Total Fit-ness gym on E. 55th St. in New York City as especially dangerous, according to his recent lawsuit to recover expenses for a broken shoulder suffered in a fall. Mr. Moskowitz claimed that so much gay male sex was occurring in the show-er and locker-room area (unsupervised by Bally) that he had probably slipped on semen. Q Compelling explanationsQ Rodger Kelly was arrested in St. George, Utah, in June for rape of a female neighbor, but he told police that he committed the act only to saveŽ her, since he had discovered her coldŽ and unconscious. He had violated her body only to try and get her temperature up,Ž according to the police report. Q The low-price air carrier GoAir of New Delhi announced in June that in the future it would hire only females for the cabin crew „ because they weigh less than men (and expects eventually to save the equivalent of $4 million annu-ally in fuel based on average weights).Q In May, former schoolteacher Kathleen Cawthorne, 33, of Rustburg, Va., successfully negotiated a reduction in her 11-year sentence for having sex with an underage student. Ms. Cawthornes punishment was set at only four months in prison when she presented the judge with a clinical diagnosis of hypersexu-ality,Ž supposedly showing that she had little ability to control her desire to seduce the boy. Q Fetishes on paradeQ According to Chicago police, Gerardo Perez, 50, broke away while on a tour in May of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility because he had been struck with a sexual attraction. He was discovered minutes later on his hands and knees beside a pit bull, appearing to have just had sex with the animal,Ž according to a report on WMAQ-TV. Q Shaun Orris, 41, was charged with disorderly conduct in Waukesha, Wis., in June after raising a ruckus outside the Montecito Ristorante Lounge, harassing passersby by loudly expressing his con-stitutional rightŽ to have sex with goats. Q


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 NEWS A15 Max, you told that story last time. No one wants to hear it again.Ž Max. Itsƒƒ., notƒƒƒƒ!!! You never pronounce it right.Ž Max, tuck in your shirt. You look like a slob.Ž People in earshot couldnt help but wince as Gloria Smith once again admonished her husband, Max, with seemingly little regard for his feelings. Max often mispronounced words and Gloria was forever correcting him, often interrupting before he could even finish a thought. But, if it wasnt his grammar, it was something else that bothered her. Needless to say, it was painful to watch.Yes, collectively, we cringe when were held hostage to domestic dra-mas like the one above. Its not that were fully immune from getting entangled into similar wranglings with our partners. So, we certainly can relate. But, at times like these, we cant help but sympathize with the hapless spouse who probably feels humiliated and betrayed when publicly called to task. While Glorias intent may have been to help her spouse avoid embar-rassment, her interruption more likely infused an air of awkward discomfort, dampening the mood and momentum of the party. The irony, of course, is that when people are out socially, relaxed and enjoy-ing themselves, theyre not likely to pay much attention to a gaffe or, much less, hold it against the offender. The correctingŽ spouse has high-lighted a flaw that might have been passed over, or dismissed as incon-sequential. When correcting flaws, we may unintentionally assume a parental or superior role. We may try to convince ourselves that we have the best of inten-tions and are only trying to help better our spouse, but we often fail to consider the demeaning effect were having. And, of course our efforts may ultimately become counterproductive, if our part-ners become resentful and push back, deliberately misbehaving in defiance. Theres value in examining when and why we critique our loved ones, and how they respond to us in turn. So much of the time, the corrections have more to do with our own insecurities, rather than the other persons defects.Perhaps, we worry that a partners missteps will be a negative reflection on us. We misguidedly attempt to correct the flaw, so others wont notice anything untoward. But, of course, in the process we invariably make matters far worse and show ourselves in an unflattering light. Sometimes, it may be ingrained in our personalities to criticize or belittle our partners so were not fully aware how damaging our behavior is. We may have been raised in a critical household, with little emotional support, and may have difficulty accepting ourselves, or by extension, anyone close to us. Perhaps, we have an insecure need to show we are better or smarter, or to have the last word. We may do so at our partners expense, but sadly, having the last word matters more. On occasion, a public jab is an indirect means of venting hurt or anger. This hostility rarely has the intended impact. While the recipient may take this as a sign they should be more aware, oftentimes, the more likely effect is to escalate a demoralizing cycle of hurtful behaviors. Some of us have the social presence to support our partners when we are out with others. We may wince to our-selves but put on the game faceŽ to avoid public embarrassment. But once ensconced in the privacy of our cars, its not uncommon to recap our part-ners blunders blow by blow, pointing out how the gaffes were gauche. This rarely turns out well, and its not likely that either party will be receptive to a single thing the other has to say. Sometimes, our partner is unaware that they are doing something hurtful or offensive to others. It would be unfair of us not to in some way offer constructive feedback. But we should always consider our delivery and moti-vation. There are diplomatic ways to do so. If weve established that our inten-tions are well meaning, coming from a supportive, loving place, then we should choose an advantageous time and place to begin a discussion (out of earshot of EVERYONE, including our children.) Its always best to start with a positive, tactful statement as were the most receptive when were relaxed and feel-ing our best. So, lets be totally honest. How do we treat our loved ones, when others are in earshot? Are we respectful, and do we consider their feelings? Correcting our partner in front of others does very little to bring about change, or elicit support. The exposure is more likely to fuel defensiveness and shame. It may be difficult to show restraint, but theres value in letting our loved ones take their own steps.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 A18 Consumer scams are a serious problem in North America, and this is one of the most common: the Emergency Scam, where the scammer poses as a friend or family member in trouble, often overseas, and requests that money be sent. Its sometimes called the Grandparent Scam because seniors are often targeted by scammers pre-tending to be grandchildren. During the summer travel season, there is an increased potential for Emergency or Grandparent Scams to occur. More people are traveling, and whenever people are vulnerable, fraud-sters will generally attack. Emergency scams play off peoples emotions and strong desire to help others in need. Scammers imperson-ate their victims loved ones, often using information theyve picked up on social media, and make up an urgent situation „ Ive been arrested, Ive been mugged, Im in the hospital.Ž The scammer makes an urgent plea for help ƒ and money. In most cases, the scammer asks for money to be wired immediately. The victim often responds quickly and without check-ing first to see if the pleading voice on the other end of the phone really is their grandchild or other loved one. Better Business Bureau has partnered with Western Union in an effort to educate consumers about how to protect themselves from Emergency Scams during the summer travel season. Western Union offers these Money Transfer Never EversŽ to help consumers avoid scams: € Never use a money transfer service to send money to someone you have not met in person. € Never send money for an emergency situation without verifying that its a real emergency; ignore the callers plea not to tell others; confirm through other friends and family. € Never send funds received by check until it officially clears in your account, which can take several days, or more. Go to BBB Scam Stopper ( scamstopper) for more information and tips on what to watch out for.

A22 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYsurgery. The time was 7:20 a.m. Fifteen minutes later, Dr. Gleiber made a two-inch incision to begin the intricate sur-gery. And I was up, walking, at „ what? „ 11:30, without pain,Ž the former patient says. I went flying the following Tues-day. My flying buddy took a video of me, and I said, I know who Im going to send that to!Ž It celebrated the end of an old problem, thanks to a new solution. Mr. Brower spent just a single night in the hospital, most of that pacing back and forth, back and forth, apologizing to the nurse who had to be in attendance, but eager to test his new free-from-pain body and prove it all real and lasting. If the nurses were, in Dr. Gleibers words, kind of shocked themselvesŽ by Mr. Browers immediate mobility, that was understandable, since many medical pro-fessionals are still unaware of the techno-logical advances that allow it. After early morning surgery, a person can walk 5,000 feet by noon,Ž the doctor says, repeating instructions he would jot on a patients medical chart. At first, physical therapists would call me and ask if Id made a mistake in the protocol.Ž He had not. Minimally invasive spine surgery (known as MISS) uses advance-ments in technology to pinpoint a prob-lem area „ a herniated disc or, as in Mr. Browers case, spinal stenosis „ so that just a small incision is needed. A nasty condition, spinal stenosis. But let the doctor demonstrate what it involves. Two strides and hes across the examining room, cradling a model of the lumbar region, the five spiny vertebrae that support the weight of the upper body. Stenosis is a narrowing of the spi-nal canal, that encases and protects the spinal cord „ here, this vertical hollow, where hes poking his index finger, see? And, sometimes, over here, too, where it can narrow the foramina, the open-ings along either side of the vertebrae, through which nerves branch out from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Charlie Brower suffered from both. Dr. Gleiber bends the model into arched-back posture, an arch that causes an ouchŽ because it narrows the spi-nal canal, pinching the nerves. Then he bends the model forward, into a leaningover posture, to show how that opens the canal, providing a brief respite from pressure that can trigger paralysis, loss of motor control, pain extreme enough to make stars bloom before ones eyes. That bowed-forward position „ Shopping Cart Syndrome,Ž in pain-man-agement lingo „ often shows itself at the supermarket, the doctor says, where youll see people bent over, pushing a shopping cart, to relieve an aching back. Mr. Brower, a retired phone company cable-maintenance technician, used to be one of them. When I took my mother to the store,Ž he says, I was the one leaning on the cart. My mother is 91. It was getting hard to keep up with her, so I knew I had to do something.Ž He knew it, but hed gone years „ hell, hed gone decades „ without knowl-edge leading to serious action. Hed tried wearing a girdle-like back support, which helped a little. Hed visited a chiropractor, which sometimes helped, sometimes hurt. Hed had a myleogram, a spinal-canal X-ray following the injec-tion of dye. And hed had CT scans, but submitting to back surgery had always seemed so radical, so last resort, so scary. Until the final-straw day, the day that propelled him past his reluctance to go under the knife. It happened in a flash: One minute, hes in his garage, lifting a laundry basket off the washing machine; the next, hes down on the floor. Its hard to describe,Ž he says. I didnt have any control.Ž Dr. Gleiber nods. That sudden loss of strength in the legs is not uncommon. But spinal stenosis isnt a one-size-fits-allŽ condition. For some, it causes a burning sensation in the butt ocks that brings them to their knees, literally and figuratively; for others, its strictly pain. In January, Charlie Browers pain got really bad, a 10 on the 1-to-10 scale, and he began a computer search for a sur-geon, zeroing in on Dr. Gleiber, whose online patient reviews impressed him. An unsolicited second opinion came from an acquaintance who, he says, saw me hobbling around the parking lot at PublixŽ and recommended his own sur-geon: Dr. Gleiber. For the first time, Mr. Brower began to nurse the hope of being pain-free. Traditional spine surgery requires a fiveor six-inch incision, followed by the slicing-through or retraction „ mov-ing aside „ of muscles surrounding the spine and the risk of damage to normal tissue. It can lead to hospital stays of five or more days and, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), prolonged pain and recovery periods, the need for postopera-tive narcotic use, significant operative blood loss and risk of tissue infection.Ž Dr. Gleiber proposed an entirely different approach. What we did with Charlie is, first, we brought him in and listened to him, his clinical symptoms,Ž Dr. Gleiber says. A diagnosis should never be made on the basis of an MRI or an X-ray alone. If an MRI showed stenosis but if the symp-toms were manageable, we wouldnt pro-pose surgery. Theres a major problem: Companies go out and give seminars across the country and market themselves. Theyll have stations where you can bring your MRI and doctors or nurses will tell you whether youre a candidate for surgery. Theyre taking advantage of patients in one of their most desperate times of need. What upsets me the most is the snake oil. You can never make a diagno-sis for surgery just from an MRI. Its a confirmatory tool.Ž Charlie Browers MRI and X-rays confirmed a narrowing of the spinal canal at specific vertebrae: Lumbar 4, 5 and the sacrum, the large triangular bone at the base of the spine, as well as arthritic build up in the channels through which nerves threaded. In lay terms, his back was a mess. I looked Charlie in the eye,Ž recalls Dr. Gleiber, and I said, This is curable, this is fixable.Ž He actually said, I can fix you.Ž Mr. Brower amends. Im talking to him for a full hour or so.Ž The surgery, called a laminectomy, utilized magnification to see inside the two-inch incision and precisely locate the lamina „ the top portion of the ver-tebra „ for removal, widening the spinal canal and creating more space for the spinal nerves. A foraminotomy removed arthritic debris from the foramina, those small pockets on either side of the ver-tebrae. For Mr. Browers operation, Dr. Gleiber wore surgical loupes, like mini-microscopes, over his eyes and a strong headlamp strapped to his forehead. The first minimally invasive spine surgery was performed in the early 1980s, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, to treat disor-ders of the spine with less disruption to the muscles. This can result in quicker recovery, decrease operative blood loss, and speed patient return to normal func-tion.Ž Significant advances in the field are far more recent … recent enough that they werent a focus when Dr. Gleiber was in training at Columbia Univer-sity Medical Center. He knew about it, though, and moved to Louisville, Ky., to attend the prestigious Kenton D. Leather-man Spine Surgery Institute. The AANS estimates that some 400,000 Americans, most of them 60 or older, may be suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis, and as many as 1.2 mil-lion with back and leg pain related to any type of spinal stenosis. Q SPINALFrom page 1 This image is of a normal spine with no stenosis centrally or by where the nerves exit.

FLORIDA WRITERSPast and present collide in Midddle East archaeological thrillerQ The Riddle of Solomon,Ž by D.J. Niko. Medallion Press. 458 pages. $14.95. D.J. Nikos archaeological thriller continues the romantic and professional saga of Sarah Weston initiated in last years The Tenth Saint.Ž Sarah is a strong-minded, courageous woman determined to make her mark no matter what the risk. Teamed with anthropologist (and love interest) Daniel Madigan, Sarah is working at an archaeological site in Saudi Arabia. They discover a papyrus scroll that holds a riddle. But before they can do much about dating the artifact, translating the hieratic script and solving the riddle, their expedition is beset by sabotage and violence. The scroll disappears. The title gives away what patiently emerges in the narrative: Sarah and Daniel have stumbled upon rarities from the time (10th century B.C.E.) and per-haps the very person of King Solomon. These items and others might have found their way from the Judean hills as part of a caravan that perhaps had a connection with the queen of Sheba. At a time when modern archaeology has largely served to undermine the historical utility of scriptural narrative, this find could lead to the verifi-cation and even the elaboration of the majestic stories recounting King Davids aspirations and King Solomons achievement. The investigation leads to heart-pounding adventures in India, Jerusalem and the rugged Judean region. Sl owly, the information gained unlocks pieces of the riddle, revealing that it was indeed written by Solomon to ensure the future. The hieratic riddle and a mysterious ring Sarah and David discover are connected to a manuscript that is nothing less than the plan for Solomons fabled temple. Several blocking forces are at work: interests that would wish to possess the information and eventual authority of the truths that Sarah and Daniel are pursu-ing. Paramount among these is the megalomaniacal Trent Sacks, who has been looking for the evidence that would sanction his grand delusion „ that he is the inheritor of the royal line that passes from David to Solomon and continues on an obscure path. If Trent is the fulfillment of bibli-cal prophecy about the bloodline from which will spring the Mes-siah, then he must be ƒ You get it! Palm Beach author Ms. Niko taps into the extreme position in Jewish Orthodoxy that antici-pates and sometimes urges on the rebuilding of the ancient temple (or construction of a Third Tem-ple) as a prerequisite for the Mes-sianic Age. Biblical prophesies of purgative catastrophes become battle plans for Trent, who sees the need to foment the war out of which the divinely ordained peace will arrive. With the wealth of a major energy company at his dis-posal, along with superlative industrial and military technology, hes ready to mount the Temple Mount as Israels savior. Sarah and Daniel must foil his plans in order to avert calamity. Truly we have a contest between the forces of truth and the forces of mad-ness. At each step, the action becomes more and more dangerous and vivid; the trials of Sarahs courage, ingenuity and strength gain magnitude. Ms. Nikos descriptions of the physical and psy-chological ordeals the Sarah and Daniel must survive are gripping, and suspense leaps to higher and higher peaks. Detailed, vivid description is among the authors greatest strengths. Whether sketching the ancient marvels revealed by the archaeological quest, the inte-riors of caves, the colossal machinery developed by demonic Trent Sacks or the landscapes shifting desert sands, Ms. Niko puts us where her imagination wants us to be. Sometimes, passages of description go on too long, dulling the impact and slowing down the action. Ms. Niko pro-vides too much of a good thing. Fortu-nately, she builds so much interest in plot and character that readers will keep pressing forward, perhaps on occasion turning a page or two to locate the next action scene. If youre looking for a good summer read that mixes mystery, history, contemporary issues and romance, you dont have to look any further.

Pinning meaning onto broochesJewelry has been worn for centuries as totems,Ž religious or good luck pieces, or just to add beauty and color to an outfit. Brooches, often called pins,Ž were made in many sizes and shapes. At first they were made of gold and precious stones to show the wearers wealth, but by the 17th century, imitation jewelry made of glass, faux pearls and gold-colored metal made it possible for the not-so-rich to own a pin. Designers made jewelry in the fashion of the day, from Victorian cam-eos to Art Nouveau enameled women in flowing gowns. Often women chose a pin that represented something in her life. Madeline Albright, the former U.S. Secretary of State (1996-2001), became known for her pins. She wore an eagle for patriotic meetings, a snake when she distrusted her visitor, a bee-shaped pin when angry, and zebras when she met with South Africans. Many pins have been designed to express a personal thought: a typewriter for a writer, an apple for a schoolteacher, a ballet dancer for a performer. Designers made solid gold tigers with diamonds or copies with rhinestones. Did a prospector for gold or the owner of a gold mine order a pin sold recently that looked like a small pickax with a real gold nugget? It is made of rose gold and has added engraved designs. It was owned by someone in Colorado who sent it to Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago to be sold. An Australian bid and got it for $1,600.Q: I have an old safe. Its 47 inches high by 32 inches wide by 27 inches deep and stands 8 inches off the floor on wheels. The door, which has a combination lock, reads Barnes Safe & Lock Co., Greensburg, Pa.Ž There is a gold band painted on the door edge and deco-rations in the corners. The safe has an inner door with key lock and interior compartments. When was this safe made? Value?A: In 1845 Thomas Barnes, a blacksmith, and his brother-in-law, Edmund Burke, a locksmith, established the Burke & Barnes Safe Manufacturers Co. in Pitts-burgh. The company made iron cellar doors, grillwork and strong boxes. After the great Pittsburgh fire of 1845, Burke & Barnes experimented with designs for a fireproof safe. Soon after the Civil War, Barnes perfected a seven-flange door safe, which became world famous as the best protection against fire ever invented. Burke retired in the early 1870s and the company name was changed to Barnes Safe & Lock Co. In 1914 the company built a main shop, a filing room and a car-penters shop in Greensburg, Pa. It made safes, bank deposit boxes and fire-proof chests until the 1920s. Your safe was made between 1914 and the early 1920s. Barnes safes have sold for $300 up to about $500. The value depends on condition.Q: I have an old table brought here from Ger-many years ago. There is a mark on the bottom that says Kiel Furniture Co.Ž Can you tell me any-thing about the maker?A: Stories about things handed down in a family dont always turn out to be true. Your table didnt come from Germany; it was made in Wisconsin. Kiel Manufacturing Co. was founded in Milwaukee in 1892. There were many German cabinetmakers in the area and an ample supply of lumber from Wisconsin forests. The name of the company was changed to Kiel Furniture Co. in 1907, so your table was made after the name change. The company also operated a factory in Mil-waukee from 1910 to 1932. The name of the company became A.A. Laun Furniture Co. in 1932. It is still in business.Q: I acquired a kerosene lamp in Utah last year. It seems to be brass and has a metal plate with the words, Property of Pony Express Station No. 9.Ž What can you tell me about it? A: The metal plate on your lamp is probably a fake. Many fake and fan-tasy maker or owner tags are showing up on oil lamps, lanterns and locks to suggest a connection that makes them more attractive to collectors. The oil lamps and other items themselves also are probably fakes or reproductions from India or China. The most common of these fake tags are small, brass rectan-gular plates with simple, nondescript lettering. The plates advertise real or fictitious companies railroads, delivery companies and even prisons that are desirable to collectors interested in Wild West memorabilia or railroadiana. Pony Express and Wells Fargo are two of the most often referenced. The items may be nice collectibles, just dont expect them to be real. Tip: Wicker can be vacuumed carefully or dusted. Then mix soap „ not detergent „ and water to make suds and wipe the chair with the suds to clean it. If you find any breaks unraveling, try to have the wicker fixed immediately to avoid future damage. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 A29 FLORIDA WEEKLY The July 20 baseball game at Roger Dean Stadium will start off on a wing and a prayer or two. Thats when the Swings & Wings cook-off gets underway. The cook-off will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include wings prepared by local restaurants and individual cooks. The first pitch will be thrown at 6:35 p.m., so fans can enjoy the Tampa Yan-kees and Jupiter Hammerheads game along with their wings. One complimentary Pepsi, bottled water, draft beer or house wine will be offered to all wing-tasting partici-pants. The wing-tasting will end at 8:30 p.m., and first-, second-, and third-place winners will be chosen by fans votes. For $20, you can get a beverage and all-you-can-eat wings and see a game. Its a pretty good deal,Ž said Mike Bauer, general manager of Roger Dean. Up to 1,500 tickets will be sold. Events in the stadiums Super 6 have been popular. Mr. Bauer said about 2,500 fans came for the stadiums Star Wars Night, and more than 7,000 turned out for the July 4 Megabash. I think its going to be a fun night out. Its something a little bit different at the ballpark,Ž he said. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $18 for Season Ticket Holders. The first 500 ticket buyers will receive a free Budweiser 2011 Champions Beer Stein. Along with the Swings & Wings event, Roger Dean Stadium also will host Back to School Night and Tiki Bash. On the Aug. 10 Back to School Night, the first 500 kids age 15 and under to arrive will receive a complimentary backpack. Tiki Bash, on Aug. 24, will be a night of Jimmy Buffett songs and island drinks. For more information, call 775-1818. Q Swings & Wings up at bat at Roger Dean Stadium SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY In an interview with Rolling StoneŽ maga-zine last August, Dave Matthews created a major stir with fans with quotes that some interpreted as signs that the bands days together might be numbered. Mr. Matthews spoke of having to dig a lot harderŽ as time goes on to come up with songs he wants the band to record „ a statement that made some wonder if the group was losing its creativity. Asked about where he sees the Dave Matthews Band going from here, he answered I dont know,Ž adding that while he feels lucky to be part of a band that turns on lots of fans and does the same for the band members, he ques-tions if the group is losing legitimacy.Dave Matthews Band feels the love of fans, each other — at least onstagejamOut of aSEE MATTHEWS, A30 XCOURTESY PHOTO The Dave Matthews Band, seen here in Irvine, Calif., will play shows July 19-20 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach. BY ALAN SCULLEYSpecial to Florida Weekly


That was enough to send Dave Matthews Band fans „ many of whom are known to be unusually invested the group „ into a tizzy. The interview coincided with the release of Away From the World,Ž the latest album from the group, which also includes bassist Stefan Lessard, vio-linist Boyd Tinsley and drummer Carter Beauford. But here it is another summer, and another full slate of concerts, including shows July 19-20 at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach. And if thats not enough of a promis-ing sign for Dave Matthews Band fans, maybe the comments from Mr. Lessard in a recent phone interview will pro-vide the necessary reassurance. He said the Dave Matthews Band is in a good place „ and in some respects the group is doing better than it has at other points in a career that dates back to 1991, when the group formed in Charlottesville, Va. On stage were the best of friends and theres nothing but love and heart when I look at everyone on stage while theyre playing and while Im playing,Ž Mr. Lessard said. It hasnt always been like that. It hasnt always felt like that. But its been going like that for the past few years now. And it really keeps get-ting stronger every time.Ž One of the reasons the Dave Matthews Band is still thriving, Mr. Lessard feels, is the band as a whole has been willing to give Mr. Matthews room to follow his own vision when needed. That was very much the case with Away From the World.Ž He (Mr. Matthews) went off and wrote all of the songs to Away From The World, which is not necessarily the way this band always is making music,Ž Mr. Lessard said. If you look at the albums, like (the 1998 album) Before These Crowded Streets or the last album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (2009), it was probably our most collaborative record as a band since the first three records because our producer was so adamant about taking our jams and turning that into inspiration for new music. I feel like Away From The World kind of was in some sense, it was the Dave Matthews Band like back-ing Daves solo record,Ž the bassist explained. It came from him. It was very personal. And thats a great moment.Ž The group has certainly been tested at times during its hugely successful career. Perhaps the low period came about three years before the band made Big Whiskey and the GrooGroux King.Ž Mr. Matthews, in a 2010 teleconference interview, said during that time rela-tionships had grown strained enough that band members werent talking to each other. Eventually Mr. Matthews, Mr. Beauford and original saxophone player LeRoi Moore had a confrontation, kind of explosionŽ that nearly split the band before the group found a way through its problems and realized they wanted the band to continue. Then came another blow to the band, when on June 30, 2008, Mr. Moore was in a serious all-terrain vehicle accident in Charlottesville. He succumbed Aug. 19 to complications from his injuries. To be sure, it was a heavy loss for Mr. Moores bandmates. But Mr. Matthews said it actually became a positive force within the group, bringing the four remaining members closer together. That spirit should be evident this summer as the four core members of the Dave Matthews Band „ joined by auxiliary members Jeff Coffin (horns), Rashawn Ross (trumpet) and Tim Reynolds (guitar/multi-instrumentalist) „ tour the country. The shows will be notably different from those the Dave Matthews Band played in 2012. Last year we were still sort of touring with a new record (Away From the WorldŽ), so we were really pushing those new songs,Ž Mr. Lessard said. In fact, a couple of times we played through the whole record, which for us is historic. Wed never done that before, during one show at least. And so this year, its one of those years where were sort of in between albums. Were not really pushing a whole new set of new songs. So it allows for us to take our time in the rehearsals and look at some of the older tunes that we havent played for awhile and bring those back out, and also take songs that we had played one way live at one time, maybe change them up.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTO Members of the Dave Matthews Band have drawn closer since the death of LeRoi Moore.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 t Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 A31 CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous handBY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in the final of the 2001 Bermuda Bowl. The event, held in Paris, was won by the United States, which made a remarkable comeback in the 128-deal match after trailing Norway by 79 International Match Points at the half. The U.S. victory was particularly notable because it marked the first time a woman „ Rose Meltzer „ had ever won the world open team title. The bidding shown took place when Lew Stansby and Chip Martel were North-South for the U.S. Martels five-heart response to four notrump indi-cated two key cards (two aces, or an ace and the king of trumps). His six-spade bid denied holding either minor-suit king, so Stansby settled for the small slam. Martel won the opening heart lead with dummys ace, discarding a dia-mond, and then misguessed how to start the spades by cashing dummys ace. This created a trump winner for West, and although it might seem that declarer was in danger of also losing an eventual diamond finesse to Wests king, Martel actually had matters well under control. He next ruffed dummys remaining heart, cashed the king of spades and then played the Q-K-A of clubs. If West ruffed, he would be forced to return a diamond into Souths A-Q or else lead a heart, allowing declarer to discard a diamond from dummy while ruffing in his hand. If West did not ruff, he could later be thrown on lead with the spade queen to produce the same result. Either way, Martel was sure to make the slam. At the other table, the Norwegian North-South pair reached seven spades and finished down two after declarer also misguessed the spades and subse-quently lost a finesse to the diamond king. The 1,630-point swing gave the U.S. a 17-IMP pickup on the deal. Q

Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center, in the Councils headquarters, 601 Lake Avenue, in Lake Worth. We Were HereŽ is a series of detailed panels that depict the people who lived throughout the Kissimmee River/Lake Okeechobee Basin from Lake Kissim-mee to Boynton Beach for more than 3,000 years, the council said in a pre-pared statement. Produced by the Law-rence E. Will Museum: A Museum of the Glades in Belle Glade, and created by Robert S. Carr and Tim Harrington of the Archaeological and Historical Conservancy in Davie, We Were HereŽ tells of their habitat, origins, way of life, contact with Europeans, end, disappear-ance, and how they were discovered again. The Cultural Council recognizes the importance of sharing this histori-cal exhibition with the public,Ž Rena Blades, council president, said in the statement. This exhibition represents a part of the countys rich history and offers a depiction of our local cultural and artistic origins.Ž The ancient people of Florida had no writing system and left no records about themselves. Scholars, who first discovered them in the early 1930s, while excavating a mound near Belle Glade, call them the Belle Glade Cul-ture.Ž Since they mastered their then water-dominated environment of lakes, rivers, sloughs and marshes, they are known in the exhibit as The People of the Water.Ž They constructed one of the longest canals in North America in prehistoric times at Ortona in Glades County as a part of a water-transport corridor con-necting Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf of Mexico. They are also known for their extensive earthworks, many with circles and radiating arms. Since January, We Were HereŽ has been displayed in many spaces through-out Florida, including the Robert Mor-gade Library in Stuart; the Okeechobee County Library in Okeechobee; the Osceola County Welcome Center rand History Museum in Kissimmee; and the Westergaard House in Moore Haven. Funded by a special Viva Florida 500 grant of $50,000 by the Florida Division of Historical Resources, the exhibit will also be shown in each county defined as areas where the people were.Ž Admission to the Cultural Council is free and open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Q Cultural Council show highlights 16th-century Belle Glade cultureSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ AFFORDABLE Art at AFFORDABLE Prices Come check out our NEW User Friendly Formatat Boob Art Supports Breast Cancer Awareness ARTISTIC T-SHIRTS JVYULKILLM‹WHZ[YHTP [\YRL`VMM[OLMYHTL IYPZRL[‹ZTVRLK ZO WP[HZr^YHWZ OVTLTHKLZV\WZ IYLHRMHZ[VTLSL[Z WHUJHRLZ‹ISPU[aLZ NS\[LUMYLLIYLHKZ Deli Selections .HYKLU:X\HYL:OVWWLZ‹ 54PSP[HY`;YHPS7HST)LHJO.HYKLUZ(7\ISP_7SHa H‹ 5>*VYULY4PSP[HY`r7.(‹^^^IV\SL]HYKNV\YTL[KLSPJVT Military Trail PGA Boulevard FREE >P-P FREE >P-P A34 WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A39FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE In the real world, being called a chowder head is less than a compli-ment and more of an insult. But in Jupiter, being called a chowder head means being served authentic New England seafood at a place where try-ing the chowder is a must. Our food is always consistent,Ž says Ed Wells, general manager of the quaint seafood caf Chowder Heads. We never tweak a recipe.Ž Mr. Wells, born in New Hamp-shire and raised in the North Shore of Boston, began his career in the culinary industry when he opened his first clam shack in Salem, Mass. I had received an inheritance from my father, and I was spending it like it was water,Ž he says. I figured I needed to invest in something, so without any experience at all, I bought a restaurant.Ž He says that Carens Clam Shack gave him his culinary experience after he opened it in 1972 at age 21. Mr. Wells says he ran the clam shack for 11 years before red tide changed the industry, forcing him to close. After visiting Florida for a friends wedding in 1982, and tired of the economy in the Northeast, Mr. Wells and his wife, Kathy, were looking for a change in scenery. We moved here about 20 years ago for multiple reasons, but the main rea-son being that we needed something new,Ž he says. Its such a pleasure to look at the ocean and see beautiful blue water instead of black water. It just seemed so clean to us here.Ž Although Mr. Wells says that he missed authentic New England sea-food, his passion for the culinary industry took a backseat after Hur-ricane Andrew hit Florida in 1992. Mr. Wells says that he found himself work-ing for the Broward Hurricane Panel Co., where he quickly advanced in the industry and soon opened his own company by the name of Hurricane Shutter and Screen Services, as well as Masters Touch. However, with the economy taking a turn for the worse in 2006, Mr. Wells says that he got out of the business and sold everything he had. It wasnt until 2 years ago that Mr. Wells had the opportunity to enter the culinary industry again, focusing on New Englands fresh seafood. I went to farmers markets and festivals all over,Ž he says. We had a hit that everyone wanted to try.Ž In November 2012, Chowder Heads opened with the intentions of not only offering fresh New Hampshire seafood, but also setting the scene to make customers feel like theyre sit-ting in a northern seafood restaurant. Ipswich clams, crab cakes, New England clam chowder, steamers and scal-lops are just a few of the fresh seafood items that Chowder Heads has to offer. If you ask Mr. Wells his favorite pick from the menu, he says it would be a toss-up between the clam chowder and the lobster roll. Our lobster roll is served hot with the meat of the entire lobster,Ž he says. Very few places know how to do it like we do.Ž Name: Ed Wells Age: 62 Original hometown: Born in New Hampshire and raised in the North Shore of Boston Restaurant: Chowder Heads, 2123 S. U.S. Highway 1, The Driftwood Plaza, Jupiter; Open 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday; 203-2903. Mission: We love what we do and we want you to love Chowder Heads. We operate under four core prin-ciples: we believe in and thank God everyday, we believe you can choose to have a good attitude, we believe to be effective you must have fun at work, and each employee must find a way to make someones day, everyday. We are at your service to make you visit memorable.Ž Cuisine: Authentic New England seafood Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I usually go with a dress shoe „ Cole-Haan shoes to be exact.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Oh, there is nothing that I love more than great Cantonese Chi-nese food. Shrimp and lobster sauce is my favorite, but its hard to find a res-taurant down here in the South that does it just right.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be in the culinary industry? In this industry, you need to make sure that you have enough working capital to get through. You also need to stay true to your genre of food. If there is one les-son that I have learned in business, it is that businesses run on systems. If you dont have systems, then you will fail.Ž Q In the kitchen with...ED WELLS, Chowder Heads BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Beer fest set to open at fairgroundsSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY The Dish: Mini pizza with two toppings The Place: Baldinos Italian Restaurant, 791 N. U.S. Highway 1, Tequesta; 7434224 or The Price: $6 at lunch; includes two free toppings. The Details: Baldinos says it offers a taste of Philly, and it delivers a fine Philly cheesesteak sandwich. But we had our jaw set for pizza one recent afternoon, so stopped in for one of Baldinos mini-pizzas, offered as a lunch special. Youre always guaranteed that slightly spicy tomato sauce, along with a wonderful light, crispy crust, perfect any way you slice it. The pizza this particular visit had pepperonis and hot peppers, but other mainstream toppings also are available. Next time, well tackle one of those Phillies.
