Because of his age and the nature of the injury, it will be a couple of months before it becomes clear whether Jacques will be able to be released back into the wild. In that time, Jacques will require frequent bandage changes, something that normally would provide a financial strain to the nonprofit sanc-tuary. However, thanks to a partnership started six months ago between Busch Wildlife Sanctuary and Clinics Can Help, a West Palm Beach-based nonprofit, the sanctu-ary has an ample supply of bandages to tend to JacquesÂ wounds. Clinics Can Help, which was founded by Owen OÂNeill of Palm Beach Gardens in 2005, is a nonprofit that collects and donates used or surplus medical equipment.

COMMENTARYSomething to sayWriting from every corner of the Florida Weekly readership, the correspondents below offer both praise and criticism for the column, ÂNothing to say,ÂŽ which appeared in print last week. Some comments have been edited for length. R,So lately, I have been re-reading Horace, as an openly admitted escape mechanism. I need to pick up Langston Hughes and throw some cold water in my face. Well-quoted and written.Best regards,Â„ T. (Thomas Wallace, president, IDS Corporation)QQQ Mr. Williams,WONDER IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THIS: My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month-old child who was shot at point blank range by two black teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A grand jury of my mom-myÂs peers from Brunswick, Ga., deter-mined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty ... too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless. My family made the mistake of being white in a 73 percent non-white neighbor-hood, but my murder was not ruled a hate crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murderÂƒ. There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller, I no longer have my life. So while you are seeking justice for Treyvon, please remember to seek justice for me, tooÂƒ just like you did for Treyvon. Thank you and God bless!Â„ Scott Voit QQQ Dear Mr. Williams,Thank you for your commentary.I think you may have been ÂcursedÂŽ by this Franciscan Benediction at some time: ÂMay God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart. ÂMay God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and the exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace. ÂAnd may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you do what others claim cannot be done.ÂŽ Peace and grace,Â„ Ayork Roger,While you were saying nothing while having absolutely nothing to say, I noticed you left out the entertainment industry, George Soros, the ClintonsÂ $100 million in speaking engagements, people like Harry Reid, multi-millionaire, and Nancy Pelosi and many more politicians of both par-ties who had nothing before they began representing we the people. And how can we miss Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson making millions on race issues?Â„ O.T Atkinson Jr. QQQ Roger,I enjoyed your opinion article about ÂNothing to say.ÂŽ Especially ÂÂIf share-holders are getting a return, why fault a guy for getting paid?Â asked Mr. DeCarlo. ÂThe thing is, a government or a company, either one, is not a government or a company; itÂs you and me and Trayvon and George and Johnny and Dickie and Stevie and Jamie and Louie and Ireney and Gracia. ÂAnd every single one of them and all of us have choices...ÂŽ Why not push or entice your readers to use the voicing options available to our elected officials (by writing to them). Keep up the good work!Â„ Russ Tidaback QQQ Dear Roger,You got nothing to say. Well, I got something say. I have something to say when: A young man chooses to start an altercation with a man with a gun, when he could have called 911 or ran home. People refuse to accept the verdict of a jury in Florida and cry racism, yet cel-ebrated an outrageous verdict in California from an admitted racist jury. People are so angry about Trayvon but donÂt even know the names of the four black kids killed in Chicago over the July 4th holiday weekend. Maybe their commu-nity organizers in that city didnÂt do such a good job. A government runs up a $9 trillion deficit and expects us to pay for its mistakes and bad judgment. Is that un-American? Corporations sell, invent and invest in things which save our lives, make our lives easier and essentially feed the world Â„ yet this newspaper chooses to vilify them con-stantly. Exactly who pays for most things and pays for most people to have employ-ment? ArenÂt taxes taken out of salaries?.... Stores remove Paula Dean from their shelves within minutes, yet play music using the same words over their speakers? And sell a magazine celebrating a terrorist? Roger Williams has nothing to say about the salaries of civil servants living in the D.C. area and the outrageous benefit pack-ages politicians receive nationwide. Roger has nothing to say about a Congress without a budget. I guess Roger and his Liberal friends can handle the consequences and choices when they mirror and support your social-ist agendas.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONWendy Davis, abortion extremist amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Wendy Davis is the countryÂs most prominent defender of late-term abor-tions. What Rosa Parks was to deseg-regation, what Eunice Kennedy Shriver was to respect for the disabled, what Elizabeth Cady Stanton was to womenÂs suffrage, the Texas state senator is to abortion after 20 weeks of fetal devel-opment. Texas just passed a law banning abortion after that point, a measure support-ed by the public and by common sense, but not by the stalwart Davis. For her trouble, she has been accorded fawning media coverage and showered with $1 million in donations, showing that abor-tion radicalism sells in America Â„ so long as it is pro-abortion radicalism. A ban after 20 weeks, near the end of the second trimester, represents a minor restriction on abortion by any reasonable standard. Many European countries, which we tend to consider laxer on such matters, ban abortion well before 20 weeks. In Belgium and France, abortion is banned after 12 weeks. Davis likes to say that less than 1 percent of abortions in Texas take place the 20th week or later, without realizing how that damns her own case. By her own admission, she is not even willing to give up 1 percent of abortions. The 20-week benchmark isnÂt arbitrary. By then, the latest research sug-gests that fetuses feel pain, respected University of Utah expert Maureen Condic recently testified before Con-gress. It is her view that fetuses Âdeserve the benefit of the doubt regarding their experience of pain and protection from cruelty under the law.ÂŽ The public basically believes the same thing. In Texas, a University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll found 62 per-cent of people support the ban. Nation-wide, even a recent HuffPost/YouGov poll found that 59 percent support a ban after 20 weeks. There is nothing outlandish or Â„ assuming its supporters donÂt make sui-cidally stupid rhetorical mistakes Â„ politically risky about the Texas law. It includes an exception for the health of the mother and for extreme fetal abnor-mality. Wendy Davis always couches her position, of course, in terms of repro-ductive Âhealth.ÂŽ In the very same breath, though, she opposes a provision of the Texas law requiring that abortion clinics meet the same standards as out-patient surgical centers. Since abortion involves outpatient surgery, this would seem an uncontroversial measure, espe-cially given that Democrats favor the strict regulation of practically every other business and activity in America. The provision is drawn from the recommendations of the Gosnell grand-jury report that wanted tighter controls to prevent the kind of butchery that it had investigated from happening again. The requirements, like wider hallways, arenÂt frivolous. One of Kermit GosnellÂs ÂpatientsÂŽ bled to death because his clinic couldnÂt properly accommodate a hospital gurney. Whistle-blowers from an abortion clinic in Houston have told horror stories reminiscent of GosnellÂs unspeakable practices. If the balance of the Democratic Party werenÂt invested in protecting abor-tion as a kind of secular sacrament Â„ Âsacred ground,ÂŽ as Nancy Pelosi calls it Â„ it would recoil from Wendy Davis in embarrassment. Instead, it lionizes her. And why not? She exemplifies its moral and political bankruptcy on this issue. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Let the light of Mandela shine on U.S. injusticeAs the world celebrates Nelson MandelaÂs 95th birthday, it is timely to reflect on his life, spent fighting for equality for people of color who long suffered under South AfricaÂs apartheid regime. Man-dela was arrested in 1962, a year before Martin Luther King Jr. would give his ÂI Have a DreamÂŽ speech in Washington, D.C. After 27 years in prison, Mandela was released in 1990. Four years later, he would become the first democratically elected president of South Africa. We should use MandelaÂs incredible life to shine a light on injustice in the United States, as George Zimmerman is acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin, and as a massive hunger strike envelops the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, where scores of men have been held without charge for more than a decade. When President Barack Obama visited South Africa recently, he took his family to Robben Island, the notorious apartheid-era prison off the coast of Cape Town. First Lady Michelle Obama said of the experience, ÂIt was amazing to see MandelaÂs cell, a tiny room Â„ about 6 feet wide Â„ where he spent 18 of the 27 years he was in prison. He slept on a thin mat on the floor, and when he stretched out to sleep at night, his toes touched one wall, while his head grazed the other. The walls were two feet thick with no decorations, and he was given a bucket to use as a toilet.ÂŽ President Obama signed the Robben Island guest book, writing: ÂOn behalf of our family weÂre deeply humbled to stand where men of such courage faced down injustice and refused to yield. The world is grateful for the heroes of Robben Island, who remind us that no shackles or cells can match the strength of the human spirit.ÂŽ ÂWe donÂt need a lecture; we need a leader,ÂŽ Col. Morris Davis told me. He is a retired Air Force colonel, and was the chief military prosecutor at Guantana-mo Bay until he resigned in 2007, refus-ing to use statements obtained through torture. He went on: ÂWhen President Obama and his family visited South Africa, he took Sasha and Malia to visit (Robben Island). And at the same time, heÂs operating an island prison in Guan-tanamo, where the majority have been cleared to be transferred out. There are people that have been there for 11 years that we have cleared to be trans-ferred home, and they still sit in prison.ÂŽ While ObamaÂs two elections as president prompted many to declare a post-racial America, the Zimmerman trial verdict last week exposes that fallacy. Phillip Agnew is the executive director of Dream Defenders, a network of black and brown youth and their allies in Florida who are fighting for equal rights and education. Following the verdict, he told me: ÂItÂs our refusal as a country to acknowledge that we still have a race problem in America that creates envi-ronments for a man like George Zim-merman to walk around, as he does now, with a gun, looking to take down young people of color.ÂŽ The Dream Defenders mobilized immediately after ZimmermanÂs acquit-tal, and descended on Tallahassee, the capital of Florida, where they occupied the offices of Republican Gov. Rick Scott. They want Scott to call a special legisla-tive session to repeal FloridaÂs ÂStand Your GroundÂŽ law, which expands a personÂs right to use deadly force in a confrontation, and vowed to remain until their concerns are addressed. ÂIf Trayvon Martin had been born white, he would be alive today,ÂŽ civ-il-rights attorney and author Michelle Alexander writes on her Facebook page. ÂIf he had been white, he never would have been stalked by Zimmerman, there would have been no fight, no funeral, no trial, no verdict. It is the Zimmerman mindset that must be found guilty Â„ far more than the man himself. It is a mind-set that views black men and boys as nothing but a threat, good for nothing, up to no good no matter who they are or what they are doing. It is the Zimmer-man mindset that has birthed a penal system unprecedented in world history, and relegated millions to a permanent undercaste.ÂŽ Meanwhile, in California, thousands of prisoners are also on the largest hun-ger strike in state history. Among their demands: an end to long-term solitary confinement, where more than 3,000 prisoners are held in the isolation units with no human contact and no windows Â„ some of them for more than a decade. Nelson Mandela told an interviewer in 1993: ÂOnce you have rid yourself of the fear of the oppressor and his pris-ons, his police, his army, there is nothing that they can do. You are liberated.ÂŽ From South Africa to Sanford, from Pelican Bay to Guantanamo Bay, coura-geous people are taking a stand, fighting for justice, a fitting birthday tribute to President Mandela.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIn the couple of weeks on either side of the Fourth of July, I lost one pet and found another. Both stories had happy endings because both the owners and the finders knew what to do. One pet made it home because of a high-tech strategy, the other because of a low-tech one. First, the pet I found, a healthy young yellow Labrador. I worried that IÂd have to find him a home, since he didnÂt have a collar or tag. I live in an area more rural than suburban, and I feared he might have been dumped by owners hop-ing a farmer had room for a nice dog they couldnÂt keep. (We rarely do out here because we all have pets already, but that doesnÂt stop people from hoping ... and dumping.) I took the dog to our neighborhood veterinary hospital to be checked for a microchip. I was delighted to be wrong about my guess that the dog had been dumped in the neighbor-hood. Score one for high-tech: The Labrador was not only chipped and registered, but the owner was a neigh-bor who was actively looking for his dog. The lost pet was my own Â„ one of my two indoor cats. Ilario slipped out unnoticed and had been gone several hours before I realized he was miss-ing. He was microchipped and wear-ing a collar ID tag, and I reported him missing to the neighbors, the micro-chip registry and the county. As the days then weeks passed with no sign of him dead or alive, I sadly figured that he had been grabbed by one of the neighborhood coyotes. But then, a lucky break: One neighbor mentioned to another that sheÂd seen a new cat wandering not far from my house, and that he seemed to be spending his days near yet another neighborÂs outdoor aviary. That neigh-bor confirmed my cat was trying to eat his birds, and after two tries, I caught Ilario in a live-release trap. He was thin, dirty and scared, but he was alive after a month on the lam. Score that one for low-tech: Even though Ilario had a micro-chip and ID tag, he was too fright-ened to be approached, not even by me. But with the help of my neighbors and a Havahart trap, I have my cat back. The lessons? Cover your bases with collar, tag and microchip, and donÂt give up when your pet goes astray. And if you find some-oneÂs pet, donÂt assume heÂs been dumped because he isnÂt wearing a collar. Start looking for an owner by taking the animal to a near-by veterinarian or shelter to be checked for a microchip. And donÂt give up on the possibility of a reunion. Although the Labrador had escaped from his family less than 24 hours before I found him, my own cat was missing for almost a month before he was noticed by the neighbors. Finally, be a good neighbor. Many pets, especially cats, donÂt roam far from home. If we all work together, we can get more pets reunited with the families who are missing them. If you see a pet who seems to be lost, help that animal and its owner. We can all use more happy endings Â„ donÂt you think? Q Ilario had been missing for almost a month when neighbors helped get him home.

July 2 Â– 26 A8 WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYÂOur goal is to help all in need get the proper equipment and supplies to sup-port their health,ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill said. ÂMany of the supplies that we, as humans, use to care for ourselves can also be used to care for animals. When we learned that Busch Wildlife was in need of supplies, we did not hesitate to step in and do what we could to help.ÂŽ Added Amy Kight, animal care director of Busch Wildlife Sanctuary: ÂThis is a wonderful partnership. It allows us to greatly cut costs to care for our animals. It also allows us to do something with human supplies we have collected that we couldnÂt use.ÂŽ Among the supplies Clinics Can Help has donated to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary Â„ in addition to bandaging material Â„ are intravenous fluids, oxygen tanks and anesthesia equipment. Ms. Kight got connected to Mr. OÂNeill through Amy Pepper, a mother of one of the sanctuaryÂs volunteers. Ms. Pepper is involved with Clinics Can Help because she is the director of Jupi-ter Community Health Services, which recently received exam tables, doctorÂs stools and waiting room chairs from Clin-ics Can Help. Jupiter Community Health Services is the fourth local free clinic serviced by Clinics Can Help. Twenty local medical agencies currently direct people to Clin-ics Can Help and 12 local hospitals donate their used and surplus equipment. ÂI hold on to a dream of one day expanding internationally into impover-ished countries such as Haiti and the Dominican Republic,ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill said, Âbut for now there certainly is enough need for our services here in Palm Beach County.ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill got the idea for starting Clinics Can Help in 2003 when he was working as an in-home hospice nurse. Mr. OÂNeill was frequently being asked by clientÂs families what to do with their medical equipment when they no longer needed it. Mr. OÂNeill started collecting medical equipment in his garage and giving it out to those who were in need. Word-of-mouth spread and, due to increased demand for his services, Mr. OÂNeill formed Clinics Can Help and later applied for grants to help him look for warehouse space. For many years, Mr. OÂNeill operated Clinics Can Help on a part-time basis while keeping a full-time nursing job. However, in 2011, the organization was given a repeating grant of $105,000 for salaries by the United Way of Palm Beach County, allowing Mr. OÂNeill to make Clinics Can Help his full-time occupation. ÂWe currently have five full-time employees,ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill said. ÂOf course, the more staff we have the more people we can help. Currently we are a sustain-able organization for the next three years.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 A9 IÂm looking to make it sustainable for the next 10 or 20 years.ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill said that a survey Clinics Can Help did showed that more than 90 percent of people who come to the orga-nization for medical supplies and equip-ment cannot afford them. All that is asked of clients is that they take good care of the equipment and bring back what is return-able when they are done. ÂEveryone wants to take good care of their family members,ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill said. ÂAccess to quality medical equipment is a critical part of access to quality medi-cal care. This form of recycling assures equality for everyone. We have universal availability. We turn no one away. We assisted close to 1,400 clients last year. ItÂs a simple, cost-effective way to increase access to medical care.ÂŽ Local programs Clinics Can Help are involved with include ÂThe Lending Clos-et,ÂŽ which provides medical supplies to individual patients; ÂLocal Free Clinics,ÂŽ which supports local clinics with need-ed medical equipment and supplies; and ÂDiscover Nursing,ÂŽ which supports local schools with medical equipment used to teach nursing and related medical fields. Clinics Can Help also is in partnership with the Department of Children and Families for the Cribs R for Infant Baby Safety Project (CRIBS), where Clinics Can Help donates portable cribs to needy families that qualify. Just before New YearÂs in late 2012, the Quantum Foundation made a surprise donation of $100,000 to Clinics Can Help. Kerry Diaz, the president of Quantum Foundation, said in a written statement: ÂOur board of trustees recognized the potential of Clinics Can Help and how a simple concept could really change the lives of those who need medical equip-ment. This grant is in recognition of the work they have done and the great trust we have in their future and ability to serve more people.ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill says if you have any medical equipment lying around that you no longer need, consider donating it to Clin-ics Can Help. Monetary donations are also accepted. And, if you need medical equipment, you are certainly more than welcome to contact the organization. ÂMost people want to do something good with the equipment to help others,ÂŽ Mr. OÂNeill concluded. ÂBy donating their surplus medical equipment, they are truly making a huge difference in someoneÂs life. I am honored to be able to play a role in helping people get the equipment nec-essary to caring for their illness.ÂŽ Q Clinics Can HelpClinics Can Help is open Monday through Friday. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Most items are available in stock, but some may not be.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYHEN VETERAN WEATHERman Mike Lyons delivers a broadcast, white dots on his radar screen indicating lightning often float out five or 10 miles ahead of or behind the Âparent storm,ÂŽ he said. ÂA lot of people will look outside and the rain might have stopped and theyÂre thinking ÂweÂre good,Â when in fact youÂre not because the lightning is still close,ÂŽ warns Mr. Lyons, chief meteorologist for WPBF 25. ThatÂs when most people are killed or injured by lightning Â„ not at the height of, but just before or after a storm, many times when the sky is still largely dry, sunny and blue, weather and safety experts say. Lightning alert systems that warn of such Âbolts from the blue,ÂŽ the common term used to describe them, are being installed at an increasing number of South Florida public schools, parks, and other facilities. The WeatherBug Total Lightning Network, by a Maryland-based compa-ny called Earth Networks, was up and running recently at three Palm Beach County locations. It went on at Southwinds, Osprey Point, and Park Ridge Golf Course the second week of July, said Eric Gar-ber, Palm Beach County special proj-ects coordinator. And the system is now being installed at The Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens at Delray Beach. Other area facilities such as Calypso Bay and Coconut Cover Water-parks already have their own detection and warning systems. Meanwhile, the Sunshine State continues to be the deadliest and most prodigious lightning producing state in the country, easily earning its other more dubious title, Lightning Capital of the United States. With the highest density of cloudto-ground strikes in the U.S. Â„ 24.7 per square mile, beating LouisianaÂs 19.7, in a 1997 to 2011 analysis by Vaisala Inc. Â„ and a large outdoorsy popula-tion, Florida has had more than twice the lightning fatalities of any other state. Between 1959 and 2012, lightning strikes killed 468 people in Florida, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says. And in an analy-sis of lightning strikes between 2006 and 2012, NOAA says three quarters of fatalities occurred between June and August. ÂProbably the biggest misconception is they think when the storm is over-head, thatÂs when most victims get hit by lightning, and for the most part thatÂs not true,ÂŽ said Collier County EMS Chief, Walter Kopka. ÂThe light-ning strike victims actually peak before the storm comes and after the storm leaves.ÂŽWeatherBugWeatherBug boasts lightning detectors that can spot not just cloud-toground strikes, but cloud-to-cloud lightning hundreds of miles from a warning site. A 15-second horn blast warns of a threat within a 10-mile radius, often minutes before the sky turns dark and begins to crackle. Three shorter five-second blasts will signal Âall clearÂŽ well after the weather clears. WeatherBug was also up and running in Lee County schools starting in January; and this sum-mer is being installed at 17 Lee County parks and at three Char-lotte County high schools Â„ those latest changes coming nine months after an 11-year-old Fort Myers boy was struck and killed by lightning at a foot-ball practice. ÂThe (Lee County) school board decided after that tragedy they would dip into reserves to pay for the pur-chase and installation of the Weather-Bug system throughout all of our high schools,ÂŽ said Ron Davis, Lee principal on assignment for operations. Elementary and middle schools in Lee and Charlotte receive mobile and online notifications of storms through the high schoolsÂ systems. Palm Beach County School District officials didnÂt immediately return phone calls seeking comment about what the school systemÂs policy is on lightning safety and if they use any detection systems. In addition to the alarm, officials can track weather on their desktop comput-ers. They also receive text messages warning of an impending storm, said Charlotte Schools spokesperson Mike Riley in an email. ÂThe system sends out an audible blast and then turns on the lights, which are strategically located throughout the exterior of the school campus,ÂŽ Mr. Riley wrote. ÂThe lights remain on con-tinuously until an Âall clearÂ is received. Not much different than a typical horn/strobe fire alarm detection system.ÂŽ Unlike in Southwest Florida, no specific lightning incident led to the installations at Palm Beach County golf courses, said Mr. Garber, the special projects coordinator. ÂWe just feel as parks and recreation facilities we want to be good stewards and promote safety,ÂŽ he said. Golf course workers and patrons were getting used to the alarms last weekend. Once it sounds, there is a 15-minute countdown before an Âall clear.ÂŽ If new lightning pops up in that time, the clock resets. ÂThere were lightning alerts all weekend,ÂŽ Mr. Garber said. ÂWhen lightning alerts are in place and weÂre in a hold-ing pattern we do not sell any tickets to the golfers. ThatÂs the newest change now for us.ÂŽ The new systems are Âgreat Â„ as long as people listen,ÂŽ said weatherman Mr. Lyons. ÂYou canÂt mess with the lightning here in South Florida because it is so frequent and can be so deadly.ÂŽ WeatherBug appNot just officials, but everyone from soccer sisters to weekend weirdos can track lightning on the WeatherBug app, which is free. The appÂs ÂSparkÂŽ feature Âturns your smartphone into a personal lightning detector,ÂŽ an advertisement reads, ÂÂƒin real-time, based on data from the WeatherBug lightning detec-tion network.ÂŽ ÂIÂve been using it myself well before we even got WeatherBug Â„ nice app,ÂŽ Mr. Garber said. ÂThe more facilities that get set up with WeatherBug, it allows them to provide more data to the end user, in this case us.ÂŽStrike victimsRoughly one in ten people who are struck by lightning die, NOAA estimates. Hundreds of others with injuries, many thought to be unreported, suffer short and long-term effects to their bodies and nervous systems, from headaches and sore-ness to trouble concentrating and irritability. The chances of your being struck are relatively low in any given year, roughly one in 775,000 to a million, NOAA says. But that figure varies widely depending on your lifestyle and increases dra-matically with age. About 1 in 10,000 are struck in an 80-year lifetime. While strikes have effected every age group and demographic, the largest number of victims have been young males, sta-tistics show. ÂDuring my time you were a little more of a risk taker when youÂre 20 years old and you think youÂre going to live forever,ÂŽ said weatherman Mr. Lyons. Lighting bolts also wreak havoc on property: $20.3 million worth in Palm Beach County, from January 1997 to March 31, 2013, says NOAAÂs Storm Events Database. Just in June, a Loxahatchee home was struck, burning a hole in its roof; a construction worker in Naples, Rob-ert Wiley, was struck and killed; a Lee County patrol car was zapped and dis-abled on Interstate 75; and lightning hit Punta GordaÂs wastewater treatment plant, the Âprobable cause of several computer and instrumentation fail-ures,ÂŽ a city report said. When thunder roarsThe best advice to stay safe, Mr. Lyons said, is ÂWhen thunder roars, go indoors.ÂŽ There is also the five-second rule, used to measure how far away South Florida facilities are installing new warning systemsDodging lightningWCOUR TESY PHOTOFlorida has more lightning strikes and fatalities than any other state.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 NEWS A11lighting is from you. Every five-second interval between a lightning strike and the thunder it produces indicates the flash was a mile away. Generally, if there is a 30 second-or-less interval between the flash and the bang (6 miles away or less), youÂre not safe outside. But lightning can strike from 10 miles away or more, NOAA says; bolts from the blue have been documented trav-eling further. While counting can still be used to measure how far away light-ing is, you should go inside if you hear any thunder at all. ThatÂs the only safe place other than the second choice, a car. Huts, cabanas, dugouts, tents and other open shelters arenÂt safe. Competing systemsIn Collier County, schools and parks have used a warning system for more than five years by a competitor of WeatherBug, the South Florida com-pany, Thor Guard. Its president, Bob Dugan, said school officials in Col-lier are considering buying a software upgrade that would allow people to track lightning on their devices. ÂSay youÂre going to a football game at Immokalee High School,ÂŽ said Mr. Dugan. ÂYou can go online, pick Immo-kalee High School on your phone, then when youÂre out there have the same info the coaches have.ÂŽ Thor Guard covers all school facilities along with North Collier Regional Park, Sun-N-Fun Lagoon, Vineyards Com-munity Park and Veterans Community Park. ÂIt emits a powerful train whistle when lightning is in the area,ÂŽ said Barry Williams, director of Collier County Parks & Recreation. ÂIt works very effectively. ThereÂs no question in peoplesÂ minds when it goes off.ÂŽ Thor Guard boasts that their system ÂpredictsÂŽ rather than detects lightning because it measures positive and nega-tive charges in the air. It sounds the alarm eight to 20 minutes before those charges could create lightning. Adjusting to the alarmsLee County School officials are just becoming familiar with WeatherBugÂs alerts. One official said he received 150 notifications on his phone in one day when all 13 high school detection sys-tems were busy. ÂI canÂt speak highly enough about the system,ÂŽ said Fort Myers High School Principal David LaRosa, adding that it takes the guesswork out of when to go inside. ÂThe teams know, they hear that alarm go off, they know theyÂve have to evacuate the practice field, the game field, whatever it may be.ÂŽ If lightning is detected within a tenmile radius to a WeatherBug system, the alarm is Âlike a distant loud car horn,ÂŽ and strobe lights flash. At the same time, WeatherBug sends alerts to its public app, and directly to officials. Principal Mr. LaRosa said he uses the WeatherBug app to monitor the threat of lightning near his home in south Fort Myers before he goes for a run. He heard the horn go off at Estero High School while he was attending a middle school track meet. ÂIÂm going to be honest with you the skies were clear, but that horn went off so the stadium had to be evacuated,ÂŽ he said. ÂEverybody was questioning why they were evacuating when there were clear skies. It was probably 15 minutes after that there was a big bolt of light-ning that went across the sky.ÂŽ After the horn goes off, the system automatically waits 30 minutes before sounding the all clear. Officials or app users can watch the 30-minute clock. The device will keep resetting the 30-minute clock anytime it picks up more lighting happening within the 10 miles radius. As a result, the mid-dle school track meet ended up being delayed 90 minutes. ÂIn prior years we would have played those games and endangered every-one in the stands and in the fields and everybody walking to the car,ÂŽ said Ron Davis, Lee Schools principal on assign-ment for operations. He added that peo-ple should expect some delays when the horns sound, including when kids are let out of school Â„ the same policy as if there were other severe weather threats. Neighborhoods near school or park systems will also hear the alarms. Fort Myers High School sits on the edge of a residential neighborhood near the Edi-son & Ford Winter Estates. ÂIÂve let the neighborhood association over there know and I told them youÂre going to hear this horn go off. If your children are out playing you need to get them inside,ÂŽ Principal LaRosa said. ÂItÂs really been a positive for the whole neighborhood in regards to safety and lightning.ÂŽ Q COURTESY PHOTOWeatherBugÂ’s outdoor station is equipped with a wind sensor, rain gauge and lightning sensor.

The project was initiated by former Jr. Friends president Adrienne Propp, after she noticed noticing fishing line dangling from the power lines that run across the bridge, according to a prepared statement from MacArthur Beach. She presented the idea to the Jr. Friends and the board of directors of the Friends of MacArthur Beach and received a unanimous vote in favor of adopting the bridge. After many months of research and permitting, installation day finally came. The Jr. Friends will continue to monitor the bin and clean it out frequently in hopes to reduce the damages caused by monofilament. Monofilament is a single-stand, high-density nylon fishing line. When improperly discarded it can entangle wildlife including birds, manatees and sea turtles. The fishing line can last 600 years and can also be accidentally ingested by sea life. The Jr. Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park is an organization made up of environmentally concerned high school students with the mission of generat-ing supplemental resources to preserve, restore, and interpret the natural and cultural assets of the park for present and future generations. John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, Palm Beach CountyÂs only state park, is situated on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lake Worth Lagoon. The park is made up of 438 acres of pristine coastal land and con-tains four different communities or hab-itats including seven species of plants and 22 species of animals on the endan-gered or threatened list.

Undeniably green, natural bamboo sinks add a very special element to any kitchen or bathANDERSONÂ’S Non-Surgical Lipsuction C avi-Lipo Ultrasound Therapy, or Cavi-Lipo as it is called, offers non-surgical Âliposuc-tionÂ aimed at reducing fat cells and cellulite without any anes-thesia or pain. Esentially, its a non-invasitive, FDA approved technology that is safe and painless. How does it work? Cavi-Lipo emits ultrason-ic waves that causes as Âcav-itationsÂ in fatty tissue. These cavitations then destroy the fatty tissue while leaving all other tissues intact. It is pos-sible to target these fatty tissues by operating at a speciÂ“c, nar-row band of frequency. The fatty cells are converted into a liquid and are then naturally expelled from the body in the form of sweat and urine with the help of lymphatic drainage.Who would beneÂ“t from Cavi-Lipo?The treatment is best suited for the average to moderately overweight person who has a healthy lifestyle. The Cavi-Lipo is not a miracle de-vice that will strip away huge layers of built up fat in a single session. It is ideal for people with isolated areas of extra fat not eliminated by diet and exercise. How many sessions are needed to see results?Results are often seen after the very Â“rst session, and optimal results achieved after 4 or more sessions.How much does Cavi-Lipo?Prices vary between $180-$250 per session. For the best results, Â“nd a trusted, reputable and licensed pro-fessional for the procedure.

Q ADVERTISEMENT ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: I have a terrible fear of going to the dentist. What should I do? Answer: If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dentalphobia, or fear of the dentist, is one of the most common fears, second only to public speaking. The key to coping with dental anxiety is to discuss your fears with your dentist. Once your dentist knows your fears, he will be better able to work with you to determine the best ways to make you less anxious and more comfortable. The good news is that today there are a number of strategies that can be tailored to the individual to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain. You may have heard of Sedation Den-tistry described in a variety of ways: Â“ Anxi-ety Free DentistryÂ”, Â“Mild Oral SedationÂ”, or Â“Twilight State.Â” Some dentists offer mild oral sedation which involves prescribing a sedative to relax & reduce stress. All of these procedures refer to you being given a seda-tive before treatment. For patients who want to be totally unaware of the treatment or are in need of longer dental procedures, IV sedation is the preferred treatment. IV Sedation is highly reliable, safe & effective for comfort & amnesia during all types of dental treatment. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified Sedation Dentist, and itÂ’s onset is immediate & can be increased easily & rapidly to meet the individualÂ’s needs. This is a huge advan-tage compared to oral sedation. Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986. He is an active member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and designated Master Cosmetic Dentist by the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry.HeÂ’s been awarded Diplomate Certification from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate from the American Dental Implant Association and a Mastership from the Misch International Implant Institute.

Facial fillers (aka dermal fill-ers) are a recent addition to plastic surgeonÂ’s tool kit to address volume loss, therefore restoring fullness and rejuvenating a patientÂ’s appearance. Facial fillers are now the second most common non-surgical cosmetic proce-dure in the US. In my practice, fillers are used to build up cheeks, soften lines around the eyes and mouth and accentuate lips. Generally, any fold or depression in the face can be corrected with the proper application of facial fillers. I routinely use Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm Ultra. The many products available each have advantages and disadvan-tages which can be overwhelming for patients. It is important to select an experienced plastic surgeon who understands the products and can choose which will work best for you and the areas you would like to improve. Consultations involve identifying the patientÂ’s specific concerns, explaining what to expect and discussing risks before any fill-er is used. Injections typically have minimal discomfort and progress is regularly checked with the patient using a mirror. The effects are immediate and there is very little down-time. There are few, if any, side effects and the most common reaction is subtle swelling for a few days. My patients generally look relaxed, rested, rejuvenated and have a more youthful appearance overall. To see if fillers are right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

More than 95 percent of knee replacement patients report less pain In 1968, the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl, the first Hot Wheels toy car made its debut, and Richard Nixon was elected President of the United States. It was also the year that the first knee replacement surgery was performed. Today, more than 715,000 knee replacements are done annually to help relieve pain and decrease disability in people with knee problems. The knee joint, which is the largest in the body, can wear out for numerous reasons, such as inflammation caused by arthritis, injury or everyday wear and tear. Knee replacement surgery may be recommended if pain limits activities, chronic inflammation in the knee does not improve with rest or medications, the knee is stiff or deformed, or there is moderate to severe pain that occurs during rest. Most patients who undergo knee replacement surgery are between the ages of 60 and 80. However, the procedure may be beneficial to patients of all ages depending on the individualÂs levels of pain and disability. If you are considering undergoing knee replacement surgery, the team of orthopedic physicians, nurses, and physical therapists at The Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at St. MaryÂs Medical Center is here to help. Our team provides a comprehensive range of both surgical and nonsurgical treat-ments for knee replacement, includ-ing self-education, physical therapy and pain management. HereÂs what to expect during the surgery process: A complete medical history will be taken prior to surgery, and a physi-cal examination will be completed to assess the range of motion, stability, and strength in the knee. X-rays may be done to evaluate the extent of knee damage. Most patients are admitted to the hos-pital on the day of surgery and will be asked not to eat or drink anything after midnight before the procedure. The majority of knee replacement procedures last approximately two hours and require some form of anes-thesia, either general or spinal. During this time, the surgeon will make an incision that is 8 to 12 inches long in the knee area, move the kneecap aside, remove the damaged cartilage and bone, and then insert the new metal and plas-tic knee joint called a prosthesis. Before the incision is closed, the surgeon will bend and rotate the knee joint to ensure that it functions properly. After spending one to two hours in the recovery room, knee replacement surgery patients are moved to a hospital room where they will generally stay for several days before being discharged home. During the hospital stay, blood thinners, support hose and compres-sion boots (inflatable leg coverings) may be necessary to help prevent blood clots and decrease swelling. A continu-ous passive motion machine could be used to bend the leg back and forth to increase blood flow and mobility. Patients usually can resume normal daily activities three to six weeks after knee replacement surgery. Low-impact activities for exercise are encouraged after recovery, such as walking, swim-ming, biking or playing golf. However, high impact activities including jogging, skiing and tennis will no longer be pos-sible. The success of the surgery will depend in large part on how well the patient follows doctorÂs orders at home the first few weeks after the procedure. More than 95 percent of patients report significant pain relief, greater mobility and an enhanced quality of life follow-ing surgery.

Q Stroke center director honored by Chamber of Palm Beaches SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDr. Ali Malek, director of the neurointervantional program and the Com-prehensive Stroke Center at St. MaryÂs Medical Center, was honored by the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce with the Healthcare Professional Award, the hospital said in a prepared statement. Under Dr. MalekÂs leadership, the first brain procedure utilizing the Pipeline Embolization Device was performed in Palm Beach County on patients with life-threatening brain aneurysms. Dur-ing the procedures, blood flow is tem-porarily halted causing the aneurysms to shrivel up and vanish by lining the blood vessel where the aneurysm exist-ed, without going directly into the brain aneurysm itself. Before the pipeline, large aneurysms were filled with permanent platinum coils increas-ing likelihood of permanent pressure on a nearby nerve or the brain. Since joining St. MaryÂs Medical Center in 2008, Dr. Malek helped St. MaryÂs Med-ical Center become selected as a GE National Show Site for Interventional Radiology and use of the GE Innova 3131 Bi-Plane Suite technol-ogy. This addition catapulted St. MaryÂs Medical Center into the role of community leader for advanced inter-ventional neurology procedures. Time is brain, and until recent years there was little hope for those patients presented outside the three-hour win-dow for stroke treatment. After the three-hour treatment window has expired, Dr. Malek uses some of the most advanced technology to do minimally invasive surgery by guiding a microscopic cath-eter into the patientÂs groin and track it up safely into the brain arteries and remove the blood clot, according to the hospitalÂs statement. St. MaryÂs Medical Center continues to build their ongoing focus of compre-hensive neurological care to adults and pediatric patients. St. MaryÂs Medical Center has invested $3.1 mil-lion dollars to date in some of the lat-est neurointerventional equipment and devices. St. MaryÂs Medical Center is one of only eleven hospitals in Florida designated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. A Comprehensive Stroke Center offers more aggressive stroke manage-ment than ordinary stroke centers, with a full continuum of services for stroke patients, including acute rehabilitation. Dr. Malek joined St. MaryÂs Medical Center from the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital. He has served as faculty in the departments of neurology and neurosurgery, and as the director of the hospitalÂs Neurosci-ences ICU for five years. Dr. Malek completed his neurology residency at the University of South Florida and was chief resident in his final year. Dr. Malek is triple board-certified in neurology, vas-cular neurology and neurocritical care, and also an integral part of the team at the Palm Beach Neuroscience Institute, a facility dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of neurological, neurovascular and neurosurgical disorders.

ÂYeah, MaÂam. ItÂs just what I suspected. The compressorÂs shot. You need a new unit.ÂŽ Myra groaned and fought back tears. ÂAre you sure? Is there something you can do to fix this one?ÂŽ The man shook his head, and said: ÂNope. And, quite frankly, your other unitÂs on the way out also. If it were up to me, IÂd actually replace them both. Although, you can probably get away with just replacing this one for the time being.ÂŽ Myra couldnÂt even look at him. She knew she had no choice. There was no way the family could manage without air conditioning. She had never considered they would be strapped with the expense of changing the units.She and her husband Mitch had already over-stretched their budget to change the kitchen countertops to granite. The bills were getting out of hand, and Myra worried Mitch would blame her again for buying this house in the first place.Myra had always dreamed of living in ÂŽHidden Crest,ÂŽ the lavish, sought after gated community. Mitch had questioned whether purchasing this home would be too much of a stretch. But Myra had convinced him that this house was way under-valued, and would be a great investment. She just knew this would be the chance of a lifetime for them to live in Hidden Crest.Most seasoned homeowners know they can count on unanticipat-ed costs Â„ some major, some minor Â„ when they purchase a new house. Some wisely budget ahead, considering all potential outlays and contingencies, and making sure that purchasing this home is well within their comfort zone. They may even go so far as to allow for an extra cushion that would serve as a built-in safety net, ear-marked for necessary improvements and unforeseen emergencies. They reason, that if life in the new home goes forward without a hitch, theyÂve been given a lucky bonus and theyÂll be able to sleep easier. However, others may not heed their better judgment, and may commit to purchas-ing a home and lifestyle that far exceeds their means. They may actually know that this purchase could seriously overburden their budgets and peace of mind, but may delude themselves with the mindset: ÂIt will work out somehow: maybe there will be an extra bonus. Maybe we can cut cor-ners with our spending somewhere else, work extra hours, etc. etc.ÂŽAccustomed to ready credit options Â„ purchasing today, postponing payments for a later day Â„ many have adopted an instant gratification mentality, with little concern for financial realities or the inevitable consequences that undoubt-edly could come crashing to a head. So many of us believe that our homes are a reflection of our true worth. ItÂs certainly understandable that striving to achieve an upward stature brings with it a level of pride and self-satisfaction. ThereÂs certainly nothing wrong with these pursuits. In fact, this reaching can become a strong motivator to push oneÂs limits to achieve. When we ignore an inner voice of caution and purchase material goods beyond our means, we may be succumbing to an insecure wish to improve our self-esteem by an outward show of material accomplishment. Some of us misguid-edly believe these showy acquisitions will fill an inner void or will become a vehicle to impress our peers. When we make choices we believe may enhance our status and exclusiv-ity, but do so at the expense of prudent spending, we may have entered a slip-pery slope of dread and worry. If weÂre not able to comfortably spend and social-ize the way our new neighbors do, we may feel inadequate and out of place. If we have to deny ourselves amenities we formerly enjoyed without question, we may find ourselves becoming resentful. Worse yet, we may begin to blame our partners for the extra burden of stress. ÂIf only you worked longer hours, weÂd have a greater cash flow.ÂŽ ÂIf only youÂd curtail your shopping, we wouldnÂt be so strapped. ThereÂs tremendous value in considering the studies conducted by two acclaimed researchers, Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton. Their findings conclude that: Âspending money on real estate doesnÂt neces-sarily mean investing in content-ment.ÂŽ They report that the conven-tional advice to cut back on vaca-tions, restaurants or other extras in order to save money for a home may actually compromise oneÂs happi-ness. Spending money on enjoying meaningful experiences with sig-nificant others instead, rather than acquiring material goods, enhances per-sonal fulfillment. Dunn voices serious concerns that the trade-offs necessary to afford a more lavish lifestyle, may, over time, impede, rather than enhance, oneÂs well-being. The joys of our possessions can be a short-lived pleasure. Once the newness wears off, we are left with the discomfort of juggling monthly bills. We may find the second thoughts and regrets brought by over-stretching may erode the initial rush of excitement. Assuming a way of life that affords the ability to comfortably enjoy activities and experiences with the ones that matter most may ultimately become the richest lifestyle of all.

College plan needs to start early for kids to succeed in shifting economyWith unemployment refusing to move below 7 percent and given that the U.S. recovery faces strong headwinds from sequestration and possibly deeper further budget cuts, it should give serious pause to those under 22 in trying to figure their future employment. In our new normal economic environment, what is the correct path to obtain sound employment? What path should be taken in schooling/training? The parents of these students should also be analyzing the same set of circumstances in order to live well. Gone are the days when a prospective college student would have the liberty to pursue his or her educational whims. Gone are the days when parents would allow their children to go to their dream college and take courses that ÂenrichÂŽ or ÂinterestÂŽ them. College has become too expensive; jobs too few upon gradua-tion; and fewer good-paying employment prospects and upgraded career paths have emerged for non-college educated stu-dents with particular vocational skill sets. A look at the present and future employment picture can be seen in a special study by Georgetown UniversityÂs Center of Education and the Workforce released last month titled ÂJob Growth and Education Requirements through 2020.ÂŽ The current employment picture is synopsized as follows: ÂAll Americans younger than age 24 are almost twice as likely to be unemployed as the rest of the working-age population; the average growth rate of jobs at about 160,000 per month has not been enough to absorb both the existing pool of unemployed and the flow of new entrants into the workforce... we still have not recovered all the jobs lost in the last recession (some 2.6 million still need to be recovered)... the jobs lost do not look like the jobs Â„ gained.ÂŽ Stated more simply, prospects are not good for the younger adult. Prospects are not likely to change given the low rate of new job creation. Furthermore, the jobs being created in this recovery are differ-ent from the mix of jobs characteristic of pre-2008, which required a different mix, different type, different skill set, etc. The Georgetown University report paints a picture of our employment future. There will be some 55 million job openings between 2010 and 2020 of which 24 million will be newly created and 31 million will come from retirements. Beyond the big picture, the study breaks down employment over the 2010 to 2020 period by sector of the U.S. economy. The largest increase in the number employed will be in financial services at 5.9 million jobs Â„ yes, the too-big-to-fail banks will be big employers. Health care ranks second at 4.1 million. In the 2-3 million jobs range, there are several industries: professional and business services; leisure and hospitality; government and public education; and wholesale and retail trade. Manufacturing pales in job growth at less than 500,000 jobs over the 10-year period. Efficiencies within manufacturing makes it a low-growth job sector. (Despite offer-ing few jobs, manufacturing remains the largest dollar sector of GDP output for the U.S.) What education is needed for these jobs? By 2020, Â65 percent of all jobs will require some form of post-secondary education or training.ÂŽ This is 9 percent higher than 2000. Some Â35 percent of the job openings will require at least a bachelorÂs degree, 30 percent of the job openings will require some college or an associateÂs degree and 36 percent of the job openings will not require education beyond high school.ÂŽ The number of jobs for high school grads will shrink. The study took a look at the skills required for the various jobs. Physically intensive skills were of increasingly less importance; close to a majority of new jobs required intensive listening, speak-ing and reading skills. Besides these skills, employers highly value leadership, analyt-ics and administration. Outside of math and engineering geeks, the employed will be expected to arrive in a job with core interpersonal and communication skillsÂƒ which certainly makes sense for financial services employers. Similar to the national statistics, 65 percent of FloridaÂs jobs will require post-secondary education by 2020. At pres-ent, FloridaÂs statistic is 61 percent of jobs requiring post-secondary education, according to the report. As the study offers insights into education requirements by sector and by state, it might be helpful for students and par-ents to look at the employment metrics before deciding a college location, field of endeavor and sector of industry to which they will seek employment. It will also be helpful to start early developing the needed communications skills for their industries that are not gained over-night or through one semester of courses. There is a lot that parents can do to hone these skills in simple ways. At the dinner table, parents can engage their children in discussions that force them to ask ques-tions, explain topics in top-down fashion, read a news column or debate some of its contents. Parents must lead their children to keep America strong and competitive in the world.

A22 REAL ESTATE/NEWS WEEK OF JULY 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYWant the most money for your property? Stage your homeAs the housing market continues to improve and inventory decreases, it is even more important for sellers to make sure their property is showing its very best. If the home is staged properly and presents itself well, the sellers will have the best opportunity to get the highest price possible. I am writing about this because I have two clients with completely opposite viewpoints. One of my clients is not interested in staging his home because he feels that the home will sell under the current conditions of the market regardless of the presentation of the home. Another client is currently in the process of staging his home even though there is not a lot of competition in the neighborhood. When staging a home, it is more than cleaning up personalized items and making sure the home is tidy when there is a showing. It involves setting up the home for a sale, which is not neces-sarily the way a family lives on a day-to-day basis. An example of this would be moving some furniture around so it is easy to get in and out of doorways, or repainting a room if it is a very person-alized color. When staging, the home should be as appealing as possible to the majority of buyers. Currently, I am working with clients who have a beautiful home in West Palm Beach. They understood that their personal items and furnishings may not exactly fit the needs of most buyers, but their design and floor plan have many appealing features. In an effort to sell the home quickly and at the highest price possible, they decided to take the advice of staging certain areas. I am capable of helping most of my clients move items in their homes and recommending ways to have their home look more presentable. I have even been known to hang pictures. But when the stag-ing process is more involved, I usually call my colleague, Debbie Dytrych. She has been in the design busi-ness for several years and will work with a cli-ent on many levels Â„ from hiring an electri-cian, selecting a painter, shop-ping for furni-ture and accessories Â„ anything that involves staging the home for a sale. Debbie met with my clients with the home in West Palm Beach and sug-gested changing the red paint color in their den to a more neutral color. There was large furniture in the room, and she moved a few of the pieces to another empty bedroom. She moved other furni-ture around in the home as well Â„ from the living room to the dining room. She is purchasing furniture for the entry/foyer and living room for a perfect first impression! One of the important details that Debbie always tells her clients is when you are selling your home and she or I make suggestions, it is the suggestion of a pro-fessional who understands what buyers look for when viewing a home. It does not mean that your home is deco-rated or designed incorrectly or that we do not like the way you have furnished it. In fact, that is what a home is supposed to reflect when you are living in it; your style, your personality and your design. But when putting it on the market and photographing it for brochures, websites and videos, it is looked at from a totally different perspective. As of this week, my clients had already moved several items from their home, refinished some floors that needed work and painted the den area. It looks much more presentable and the beautiful windows in the home offer a gorgeous view which enhances the fin-est features of the home. With my previous experience of being in the custom-home building business, staging a home can almost be looked upon as portraying a model home. If you have ever been in a model home, most of them are not turnkey. They appear unclutte red, neutral and have key features that accentuate the home versus detract-ing from the design or features of the home. If it is not in your budget to stage your home for sale, then my advice would be to simplify. Organize, clean out as if you are already moving and accentuate first impression areas such as the entryway and living room areas.

She can be reached at 7226136, or at email@example.com.Urgency is driving more focus on boards of non-profit organizations If you have been a board member of a charity, you know you have to earn and wear a coat of many colors to account for all the roles expected of you as a board member. This may not be clear from the start. The trajectory is long to accelerate up to the same speed as members steeped in the culture and business of the organization. The genesis of board service begins with a recruitment effort, generally undertaken by a subcommittee of the board. The subcommittee vets a pool of candidates proposed by board members and other trusted advisors. The commit-tee nominates the short list of prospects after it has whittled down a longer list; making the cut for election as a board member is an endorsement of oneÂs leadership, which is self-evident and gratifying to prospective recruits. Board representatives zero in on and explain to the candidates the organiza-tionÂs expectations of individual board members. These conversations tend to be the equivalent of a softball game. From the perspective of the organiza-tion, getting to ÂyesÂŽ is a factor of pro-viding board candidates with enough but not too much information as to chill their interest; from the perspec-tive of the board candidate, getting to ÂyesÂŽ is a measure of the self-investment required and the willingness to go all in. It is little wonder then, that the relationship that ultimately results of individual board members with an organization and within the board overall, is a recipe for a dish everyone has; but once in the kitchen, everyone makes differently. No two boards are alike. New board members are fated to suffer an information deficit of both past and present proportions. The official story of the organization is sel-dom the whole story but it is the story preserved by default. The longer an organization has been in existence, the more buried and fossilized are the artifacts of board policies and politics past. Terms of board service are delib-erately staggered to counter this ÂnewbieÂŽ effect and to sustain institutional memory, inclusive of substantive details that are absent from the public render-ing of a boardÂs prior decision-making. If there is an attack of selective amnesia, encouraged by current members uncomfort-able with their own past responsibility for board deeds, new board members are at a disadvantage. Institutional fic-tions preserved with no fingerprints erode board accountability overall. Still, things happen to uncork disclosures that enlighten and inform oneÂs obli-gation of stewardship as a new board member. One such avenue is through a typical generosity afforded by the seasoned to the inexperienced board member: No question is too dumb to ask. The gratu-ity can invite opportunities for trans-formative board discussions. Another is self-assessment by the board of its own performance. A board that annually evaluates itself and its membership invites revelations that can open a new chapter in an organizationÂs history and propel it forward by quantum leaps. An annual, rigorous self-assessment by an organizationÂs board can make the dif-ference between an organization that aspires to be great and succeeds and one that aims for good and sometimes is. Jim Collins provides a conceptual framework for understanding charac-teristics that distinguish great organi-zations from those that are more run-of-the-mill. He describes them more fully in his monograph ÂGood to Great in the Social SectorsÂŽ on why business thinking isnÂt the solution for the social sector. Urgency is driving more focus within the charitable sector on the issue of board leadership. The Great Reces-sion has adversely affected millions of families. The rules of engagement are changing how nonprofits can be most effective in serving serve those suffer-ing from a litany of social and economic issues. It is no time for boards to stick to the ditch of conventional wisdom and check the boxes associated with the boardÂs duties as if a storm passed but left the landscape untouched of the boardÂs role in leadership and gover-nance. Boards today have a rare oppor-tunity for conversations that do not happen among nonprofit boards nearly often enough. This is an equal opportunity challenge that levels the playing field for participation by all board members because it is future-focused. ÂGood to Great in the Social SectorsÂŽ says it best. It is a time for an organization to jointly consider what the organization stands for, its values, and why it exists; it is a time to understand what the organization can do best and uniquely contribute toward making a difference in the world; and it is a time to understand what best drives the organiza-tionÂs resource engine Â„ time, dollars, and brand. Answering these questions leads to powerful results if a board is committed to leadership and a candid self-assessment of its own per-formance.

RENT AL UNFURNISHED ANNUAL Existing-home sales declined in June but have stayed well above year-ago levels for the past two years, while the median price shows seven straight months of double-digit year-over-year increases, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing home sales, which are completed transactions that include sin-gle-family homes, townhomes, condo-miniums and co-ops, dipped 1.2 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.08 million in June from a downwardly revised 5.14 million in May, but are 15.2 percent higher than the 4.41 million-unit level in June 2012. NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said there is enough momentum in the market, even with higher interest rates. ÂAffordability conditions remain favorable in most of the country, and weÂre still dealing with a large pent-up demand,ÂŽ he said. ÂHowever, higher mortgage interest rates will bite into high-cost regions of California, Hawaii and the New York City metro area market.ÂŽ According to Freddie Mac, the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage rose to 4.07 percent in June from 3.54 percent in May, and is the highest since October 2011 when it was also 4.07 percent; the rate was 3.68 percent in June 2012. Total housing inventory at the end of June rose 1.9 percent to 2.19 million existing homes available for sale, which represents a 5.2-month supply at the cur-rent sales pace, up from 5.0 months in May. Listed inventory remains 7.6 percent below a year ago, when there was a 6.4-month supply.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 A25 FLORIDA WEEKLY Nearly a decade ago, music brought Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano together. Nine years later, that music still is bringing the couple together. The duo Â„ Mr. Comstock on vocals and piano and Ms. Fasano on vocals Â„ will play a three-weekend return engagement July 26-Aug. 10 at The ColonyÂs Royal Room cabaret in Palm Beach. So whatÂs special about the Royal Room?ÂEverything,ÂŽ said Mr. Comstock by phone from New York. ÂWeÂve been there many times. Before Barbara and I even married I had appeared there and loved it instantly. The only place that competes at this point is Caf Ca rlyle.ÂŽ The space is intimate Â„ performers literally can reach out and touch their audiences. And the 90-room hotel itself is a boutique space.ÂWe know everybody by name and look forward always to a reunion,ÂŽ he said. ItÂs a reunion that also marks an anniversary.ÂWe celebrated our first anniversary in Palm Beach and it was pretty much the commencement of our working together,ÂŽ Mr. Comstock said. For that they can thank the standards they both love. ÂMusic literally brought us together.

To create a film for swede fest, you have to want to do it badly. Really badly.Mainstreet at Midtown is gearing up for its second annual swede fest on July 27. WhatÂs a swede? ItÂs a laughably bad remake of a mainstream film, and it takes its name from the movies Jack BlackÂs charac-ter made to replace videot apes that were accidentally erased in the 2008 film ÂBe Kind Rewind.ÂŽ The video store was able to charge a higher rental on the films by saying they were Swedish. This yearÂs swede fest will boast about 40 of the 3-minute, low-budget films that draw on everything from ÂPoint BreakÂŽ to ÂNapoleon DynamiteÂŽ and ÂThe ExorcistÂŽ to ÂGhost.ÂŽ ÂSome of them are really creative, and with some of them, the tagline is correct. ItÂs a celebration of bad movies by good people,ÂŽ said Belle Forino, marketing manager for Mainstreet at Midtown. She promises a laugh, regardless of how bad the film may be. ÂTheyÂre all funny. Even in the movies that are a bit dodgy, thereÂs an element that is quite creative,ÂŽ she said, adding that about 500 people attended last yearÂs festival After all, itÂs an excuse to be sublimely silly.ÂThis is how we let loose.

At least thatÂs how tour organizer Kevin Lyman sees things. ÂItÂs a very young lineup, very kind of bubbling up feeling,ÂŽ he said in a late-June phone interview to advance the tour, which stops July 27 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach. ÂEvery day is just getting bigger. And the kids, you can just feel that energy, that by the end of the summer, this tour is going to be on fire. ItÂs going to be one of those years where four months from now a lot of people are going to go ÂAll those bands were on Warped tour. I missed it. I didnÂt go this year because I didnÂt know, it wasnÂt like those big names that pop sometimes out on the Warped tour.Â ItÂs cool, and itÂs very eclectic, very young and a very energetic crowd. ThereÂs a lot of energy out here.ÂŽ Mr. Lyman was on site during the first week of Warped tour when he called in for the interview. And while ticket sales were down a little for the first couple of dates, he expects the tour will once again post solid attendance as it moves through July. ÂOur attendance was down a little this week, but not bad when weÂre doing 18,000 people in San Francisco and 24,000 people in Pomona (California, where there were two Warped dates),ÂŽ Mr. Lyman said. The slight downturn in attendance, Mr. Lyman said, is probably due to not having as many prominent acts from the alternative music world this year. In years past, Mr. Lyman has generally had a half dozen or more established acts with fairly large followings on Warped. For instance, last summer, Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Senses Fail and the Used were on the tour.

Now that July has come and the rains have finally stopped, a new group has settled in.ThereÂs a man here now, a Belgian in his early 40s, who was here earlier in the sum-mer. HeÂs appeal-ing in a bourgeois sort of way. He dresses well, he drives a nice car and he wears expensive cologne. If heÂs a touch vain Â„ IÂd swear his hair is two shades darker than the last time I saw him Â„ his other qualities over-shadow it. The problem is that someone else here seems to have laid claim to the place. The Frenchman has been at the retreat for nearly four months, and itÂs clear that he considers himself the lead-er of our little pack. HeÂs less vain than the Belgian, certainly, but he preens in his own French way. There are sev-eral young, pretty women in this new group, and the Frenchmen acts as if they were part of his personal harem. But the Belgian with his dyed locks and expensive linen shirts Â„ he has other ideas. TheyÂre like two bantam roost-ers scratching in the yard. They circle and crow and make a fuss, their chest feathers all puffed out. It might be very serious if they werenÂt both so ridiculous. Last night we gathered for dinner, all 12 of us around one table like some large, unlikely family. There were can-dles lit and flowers put in vases and too many bottles of wine uncorked. The Belgian drank and drank while the Frenchman sat beside him and glow-ered. Midway through his second bottle of wine, the Belgian draped an arm around the woman next to him. She seemed amenable to this for a time, but when he started rubbing her back and leaned in close, she turned away. Disappointed, the Belgian looked across the table at me. He smiled drunkenly and reached out to take my hand. I shook my head, no. The Frenchman radiated anger and I thought, surely, the two men were headed for a confrontation. The Belgian left the table briefly and returned with a bottle of whiskey from his room. He poured glasses for every-one and in the process served himself a healthy dose. Not long afterward, the meal ended and some of us began clear-ing away the plates. The Belgian stood on wobbly legs and proceeded to tumble backward into the love seat. He spit out a slew of profanities, and as people moved to help him stand he pushed them away and brushed himself off. ÂI just lost my balance,ÂŽ he quipped. But then he tried to take another step and pitched forward into the wood box. He rolled around in the kindling for a few seconds before the Frenchman was there, helping him to his feet, speaking gently in a low voice. The Belgian turned docile and leaned heavily on the other manÂs arm. The two of them stood there for a time like old comrades before the Frenchman eased the Belgian up the stairs, leaving the rest of us below as if we had never mattered at all.

CONTRACT BRIDGEA matter of logic BY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in a pair championship. The contract at every table was three notrump, and in each case declarer failed to make it. However, subsequent analysis showed that the contract should have been made. The play was fairly uniform at the various tables. West led a heart, and declarer won EastÂs jack with the queen. After cashing four club tricks, declarer led either a spade or a diamond. West took the ace of whichever suit was led and returned the king of hearts. South could now have cashed eight tricks, but at some tables, when he attempted to establish a ninth trick, West took his other ace and ran his hearts to put the contract down two. All the plays seem so normal that it is difficult to see where declarer went wrong. But the fact is that each declarer missed an opportunity to make the con-tract. The winning play is to allow East to win the opening heart lead with the jack! Once South does this, the contract cannot be stopped. LetÂs assume East returns a diamond. West takes the ace, but what can he do next? If he returns a heart, declarer scores the queen and finishes with 10 tricks; with any other return, South drives out the spade ace and winds up with nine tricks. It can be argued that ducking the jack of hearts is easy to do when all 52 cards are in view, but actually the play can be supported by simple logic.It is certainly reasonable to credit West with both missing aces as well as a six-card suit for his vulnerable overcall. Furthermore, the six-card suit must be assumed since the contract cannot be made if West has only five hearts (and both aces), whether or not declarer wins the first heart. All indications thus point clearly to ducking the jack of hearts at trick one.

A30 WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY This Saturday, 7:00 PM at The Borland Center for Performing ArtsÂ€ After party at Cantina LaredoWhat is a swede? Glad you asked. ItÂs a 3-minute, no-budget, laughably awful remake of a hit Â“lm. Amuse yourself by joining us. ItÂs a big night out for $5ÂƒVisit www.swedefestpalmbeach.com for info and tickets.This amateur Â“lm festival is enthusiastically pre-sented by Mainstreet at Midtown, home of really cool events. Visit us at www.MidtownPGA.com for directions and event calendar. Midtown has free garage parking.PARTNERS: The time hascome! Bang! A celebration of bad movies by good people. PUZZLE ANSWERS with,ÂŽ said John Burke, who stars in the remake of ÂGhost.ÂŽ ÂWe have a little cre-ative spark and this is how we cope. We like to lighten up with humor.ÂŽ The ÂweÂŽ in this equation includes Mr. BurkeÂs co-workers, Jill Talbot and Monica Lewman-Garcia, at the secu-rity firm G4S, which has an office near Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. Ms. TalbotÂs partner, Stacy Robinson, also assisted with sets and costumes. They drew inspiration from their Halloween costumes as the LEGO version of their companyÂs protection officers. But for the pottery scene in ÂGhostÂŽ?Moviegoers of a certain age will remember the scene from the 1990 film in which Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze make love after foreplay at a potterÂs wheel as the Righteous Broth-ersÂ ÂUnchained MelodyÂŽ plays in the background. Now picture it with LEGO characters.ÂI played the ripped Patrick ÂLEGOÂ Swayze. You can tell IÂve been working out in the clip,ÂŽ said Mr. Burke. He challenges viewers to watch the original, then watch the ÂswededÂŽ ver-sion and decide which is best. Seriously, the 3-minute short required a fair amount of work. ÂWe talked about it a lot. Jill and Monica spent a few hours retrofitting the costumes we made for Halloween,ÂŽ Mr. Burke said. ÂOne of the problems they ran into was the hair. JillÂs partner Stacy Robinson came up with coconut lining that comes with hanging baskets.ÂŽ They spray-painted the fiber to match the hair colors of the characters in the original film, black for Demi Moore and brown for Patrick Swayze. Ms. Lewman-Garcia bought a very noisy pottery wheel. ÂThey spent one afternoon doing that, then we met on a Sunday afternoon and probably worked on it two to three hours filming,ÂŽ Mr. Burke said. ÂThen I spent quite a bit of time editing.ÂŽ So what can a LEGO character say?ÂWe opted not to do the dialogue because thereÂs only like six lines of dia-logue. I mean, how intimate can you get with a LEGO? Plus, we had to keep the PG-13 rating,ÂŽ he said. Fans of the original film will remember how Mr. Swa yzeÂs character helped Ms. MooreÂs shape the clay in a sugges-tive manner before they dance across the room and end up passionately kiss-ing in bed. ÂAt the end, the Monica character falls down, and I fall down on top of her,ÂŽ Mr. Burke said. ÂWe just kind of ad-libbed on this. She collapsed on the floor and I fell on her.ÂŽ Ouch.Still, how much fun can you have for virtually nothing? ÂWe had a very minimal budget. It was spray paint, gas, our time; maybe some therapy after filming this thing,ÂŽ Mr. Burke said. ÂI guess the budgetÂs still out.ÂŽ Q SWEDEFrom page A25 >>What: swede fest 2 >>When: 7 p.m. July 27 >>Where: The Borland Center for the Performing Arts, 4801 PGA Blvd., Mainstreet at Midtown, Palm Beach Gardens>>Cost: $5 advance, $6 at the door; $8 VIP (ticket and commemorative lanyard/badge combo)>>Info: 630-6110 or swedefestpalmbeach. com in the know COURTESY PHOTO A scene from the sweded version of Â“The Thing.Â”
FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 25-31, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A31New AgainÂ with David Kenney. We were both on the bill and thatÂs how we met,ÂŽ Ms. Fasano said. ÂNothing hap-pened. We said, ÂHello. How are you?Â and shook hands.ÂŽ The romance sounds like something from a Cole Porter or Noel Coward song. ÂWe connected via email,ÂŽ Ms. Fasano said. ÂHe started responding to my announcements and we started having a very flirtatious exchange. Then Eric came to see one of my concerts and asked me out in advance to take me out to supper. Not just dinner, but supper. It sounds so elegant.ÂŽ It sounds so perfect.ÂIt was one of those nights. We refer to it as the greatest first date ever,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Fasano said she had not known what to expect. ÂI knew of him but I didnÂt know him,ÂŽ she said. ÂHe was so much better than what I had imagined.ÂŽ This is the part where it sounds like an old-time romance, say, with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. ÂHe walked me to my front door, told the cab to keep the meter running and kissed me on the cheek,ÂŽ Ms. Fasano said. Something sparked.ÂSix months later, we were engaged and then we were married. It was kind of amazing. It was the right time, and, finally, the timing was perfect,ÂŽ she said. The timing also was perfect the first time Rob Russell, The ColonyÂs enter-tainment director, and Roger Evering-ham, the hotelÂs general manager, invit-ed the couple to perform together that first time. ÂRob and Roger asked us to come down together in the late summer of Â05 and we went from there to a theater in St. Louis for a week and that was the beginning of the trouble,ÂŽ Mr. Comstock said. They have not stopped.The couple just completed a run at Brasserie Zdel in London, where they performed music from their New York show. Palm Beach audiences may expect some of the same. That would include come classics from the Great American Songbook, possibly some Gershwin and Porter. But expect some Joni Mitchell as well. ÂThe songbook is really living breathing song and it didnÂt stop at Cole Porter and Gershwin and Harold Arlen. There are wonderful songs that have been written after them,ÂŽ Ms. Fasano said. Also, look for a song or two from the great Sammy Cahn; itÂs his centennial year. It also is the 100th birthday year of Mr. CahnÂs songwriting partner, Jimmy Van Heusen. The two of them wrote ÂLove and MarriageÂŽ and ÂCome Fly With Me,ÂŽ among others. Those songs could be apropos of everything for Ms. Fasano and Mr. Com-stock, who later this summer will play dates in East Hampton and on MarthaÂs Vineyard. ÂWe have a love of music, and itÂs really beautiful to share that,ÂŽ Ms. Fasano said. ÂWe donÂt have children and music is our baby. We nurture it and love it, and sometimes itÂs exasperating.ÂŽ Q CABARETFrom page A25In 2010, All-American Rejects, Sum 41 and Andrew W.K. helped give the lineup some star power. In 2005, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and the All-American Rejects were on the tour just as they were breaking big. This year, probably the most established acts are Hawthorne Heights, Reel Big Fish, Allstar Weekend and Bring Me The Horizon. Select dates will get a boost with Silverstein, the Used and Never Shout Never on the bill. This yearÂs Warped tour lineup took shape as it did largely because of the choice of available bands. ÂIt was who was available,ÂŽ Mr. Lyman said. ÂSome people were recording this year. There were a lot of acts I talked to that I think youÂll see next summer (on Warped) that were maybe getting out of (record deals). Major labels are drop-ping a lot of acts right now. So bands are kind of in a regrouping strategy and they werenÂt quite ready. Next year theyÂll have their indie records releases based around Warped tour. It will be a fun position (for book-ing) next year.ÂŽ So Mr. Lyman went for booking the best bands he could get, even if the group lacked name recognition. He had no shortage of options. ÂThereÂs a lot of talent out there, a lot of fantastic talent,ÂŽ he said. ÂThereÂs a lot of stuff, and itÂs just kind of making that decision to make that lineup that you want and having to say no to a lot of people.ÂŽ And just a week into Warped tour, Mr. Lyman said a number of acts are already making their presence felt. ÂItÂs just kind of a year where weÂre going to roll out on the road and try to break some new acts,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂve got a couple out here, like Echosmith, that IÂm really excited about. Summer Set just seems to be catching a wave. And Crossfaith has got big crowds. When people come to the show, I send them out to all the small stages, and they all come back going ÂOh my God, my mind just got blown by that band.Â ÂI mean, Echosmith, Crossfaith, Crown The Empire are all starting to do really just big crowds that grow every day,ÂŽ Mr. Lyman said. ÂAnd even on the electronic stage, artists like Itch are doing great and Wallpaper. Everyone that sees Wallpaper goes ÂOh my God, that was the best band I saw at Warped tour.Â And then bands like Stick To Your Guns are doing really well out here. ItÂs nice to see punk bands like EmilyÂs Army having nice crowds, playing to nice groups of people. Real Friends is doing real well, and this little band, Citizen.ÂŽ Mr. Lyman expects that as fans discover some of the under-the-radar tal-ent on this yearÂs tour, word will get out over the internet and by word of mouth, and the crowds will continue to build as the tour continues. ÂIÂm looking forward to the rest of this summer watching what goes on,ÂŽ he said. Mr. Lyman also thinks this yearÂs Warped lineup fits the direction he has started to take the tour over the past few years. He has come to find that Warped now tends to draw from two main age groups Â„ 13 to 19 and 24 to 30 Â„ and the lineup is tailored to that audience. But as Warped began to inch toward its 15th anniversary in 2009, the lineups still were peppered with acts that years ago had helped build Warped into the premier touring alt-rock festival of the summer Â„ such as Bad Religion and NOFX. Mr. Lyman realized the audi-ence that follows those long-established bands had gotten older as well and no longer came to Warped, and he has since passed over those types of veteran acts in favor of younger talent. ÂI think we fit that world,ÂŽ he said of the younger audience. ÂEveryone right now at 19 wants to go to all of those other festivals, and there are so many festivals in America right now. Every-body wants to go to those three-day festivals (Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lolla-palooza), but for the kids that come to Warped tour (itÂs different). ÂTo have the average attendance at the age of it being around 17 or 18 right now, they feel like itÂs their own tour,ÂŽ Mr. Lyman said. ÂThey donÂt feel like theyÂre going to a nostalgia tour. TheyÂre going to their own tour. The shift toward appealing to a younger audience largely explains why this yearÂs lineup Â„ although it has every-thing from electronica to Americana to a little hip-hop and ska Â„ is weighted strongly toward hard rock/metal/met-alcore and punk pop/indie rock. ÂIÂve kind of felt this resurgence of pop-punk, and now IÂm feeling kind of a resurgence of punk in some ways, too,ÂŽ Mr. Lyman said. But the metalcore stuff, thatÂs getting to be like this kind of core (for the tour) Âƒ Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire, Bring Me The Hori-zon are definitely the bands with the biggest crowds out here right now.ÂŽ Q >>What: Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano >>When: Fridays and Saturdays, July 26-Aug. 10>>Where: The Colony HotelÂ’s Royal Room, 155 Hammon Ave., Palm Beach>>Cost: $100 per person for dancing, dinner and show>>Info: 659-8100 in the know >>What: Vans Warped Tour >>When: 11 a.m. July 27 >>Where: Cruzan Amphitheatre, South Florida Fairgrounds, 601-7 Sansburys Way, suburban West Palm Beach>>Cost: $23.50-$47.50 >>Info: 795-8883 or www.cruzan amphitheatre.net in the know WARPEDFrom page A25 COURTESY PHOTO The UsedLYMAN COURTESY PHOTO Black Veil Brides
FLORIDA WRITERSSurviving the challenges of caring for aging parents Q Pauline Hayton, ÂIf You Love Me, Kill Me.ÂŽ CreateSpace. 158 pages. $6.99 (Kindle e-book, $3.99). What happens when your life becomes a living hell? What happens when you reach your own retirement age and find yourself trapped in the most dif-ficult, exhaust-ing and demoral-izing job you ever had Â„ caring for aging parents who have begun a long, painful decline that seems to have no vanishing point? How does one handle the battle-ground of resent-ment and guilt that turns your life into something very dark? In Pauline HaytonÂs case, things kept going from bad to worse. After she lost her father, whose caretaker she also had been, her mother went into a deep decline. It reached the point that the author could not have more than 15 minutes between her motherÂs frantic, fearful yet commanding calls for her to come back to her room. Ms. Hayton could barely get anything else done before having to respond to her motherÂs voice. Worse yet, that voice yelled out, ÂBarbara! Barbara!ÂŽ Who was Bar-bara? Ms. Hayton never figured that out. The story begins with Ms. Hayton revealing that she had survived deep conflicts with her mother that had been resolved through counsel-ing. The resolution, however, left the author with a somewhat detached relationship with her mother: ÂI accepted her and her controlling ways (that caused me to leave home when I was 17) without allowing her to have power over me.ÂŽ She adds, ÂBut I adored my father. He was a very special person.ÂŽ So, when it was decided that her parents, both blind, should not face their declining years alone in Eng-land (where Ms. Hayton was born and raised), it was also decided that she and her husband would take care of them. During the first three years, the situation was managed well enough, and Ms. Hayton became closer than ever to her father as his caretaker. But then his health plummeted, and his death followed soon after. Her motherÂs decline accelerated after the fatherÂs death. Then Ms. Hay-ton learned she had cancer. Eventually, her husband left, unable to handle the stress of the situation. How much grief can pile up on a person? This question generates enormous suspense in Ms. HaytonÂs harrowing narrative. How do you lift a 160-pound woman onto her wheelchair, day after day, and often several times a day? How do you live in a totally exhausted, pressured state? When there is less and less of another person in the relationship but only an endless burden, how do you avoid wishing for that person to die? Ms. Hayton is very frank about her decline into such horrible wishes. She needs to show readers that, for most of us, saintly self-sacrifice has limits. She needs to assure those readers who are endur-ing similar situations and feel-ings that they are not monsters, that they are not alone, and that someone else understands and can articulate their suffering. ÂIf You Love Me, Kill MeÂŽ is scathingly honest in dealing with hard truths. It is not, however, unwaveringly dismal. There are uplifting passages in which Ms. Hayton describes her ability to regroup, to reformulate her out-look and even to find paths to the long-denied love for her mother. About the author Naples resident Pauline Hayton, who emigrated to the U.S. in 1991, started writing in 1996. Her other titles are: ÂA CorporalÂs War,ÂŽ based on her fatherÂs WWII experiences; ÂNaga Queen,ÂŽ which grew out of her research on the first book; and ÂChasing Brenda,ÂŽ a lighthearted adventure in Nagaland (in northeast India), written after the author visited Magulong village where she and her husband support a school. More recently came ÂMyanmar: In my FatherÂs Footsteps. A Journey of Rebirth and Remembrance,ÂŽ a travelogue of a trip taken in 2006 to visit the places where her father fought the Japanese in Burma during WWII. Q t d m Â b o phil JASONpkjason@comcast.net Pauline Hayton Well-designed, less publicized pottery popular with collectors Ferock is a name that appears on art pottery but is not well known. In 2012, a vase marked ÂFerockÂŽ was sold at a Hum-ler & Nolan auction in Cincinnati for $2,760. The auction house and a few col-lectors knew who made it and how rare it is. Frank Ferrell (sometimes spelled Ferrel) worked in Zanesville, Ohio, in the early 1900s. He also worked for Weller (1897-1905), Roseville (1918-1954), J. B. Owens and Peters and Reed, all nearby Ohio potteries. He is best known for his work at Roseville designing pottery lines. The Ferock vase that just sold was made for the University of North Dakota from North Dakota clay. It was shown at the National Corn Exhibition in 1909. The Arts and Crafts style was interpreted with angu-lar designs on one side and raised fold-like markings on the other. The 12-inch-high vase is covered with a matte, crazed, light beige glaze. It is pictured in two books about the University of North Dakota School of Mines pottery. The universityÂs pottery opened in 1892 and its pieces were sold, but student work was not offered until 1909. It closed in 1949. Because the vase has such a complete history and was made by an important designer, it attracted the bids of serious collectors and brought a high price. Collectors today search for the less-publicized but well-designed pottery of the 1900-1950s era as well as later studio pottery. The best pieces of well-known art pottery like Rookwood and Weller can sell for more than $10,000 Â„ too expensive for most collectors. Q: About 25 years ago, I bought a solid copper litho-graphic printing plate at a yard sale. It weighs 15 pounds and is 10 by 6 inches. The image is a navigational aid for the ÂMahukona Harbor and ApproachesÂŽ of Hawaii. ItÂs also marked ÂNo. 4101 C&GS.ÂŽ Does the plate have any value? A: Copper printing plates like yours were made to print surveying charts for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. The survey that resulted in the manufacture of your plate was done in 1910. Today the U.S. surveying agency, which man-ages a national coordinate sys-tem for mapping, charting and other engineering applications, is called the National Geodetic Survey. ItÂs part of the Nation-al Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Survey plates as old as yours and in excellent condition can sell for $150 or more. Q: I have an Ada Lum cloth doll with embroidered Chinese features and a long braid in the back. It is dressed in blue Âpajama-styleÂŽ jacket and pants, woven sandals and a straw hat. There is a tag on the dollÂs wrist that says ÂFarmer, an original Ada Lum DollÂŽ and ÂMade in Hong Hong.ÂŽ Can you tell me something about the maker?A: Ada Lum began designing and making dolls in Shanghai in the 1940s. At first she made them just for friends, but as more people wanted them she started a business making dolls. When the Communists took over in 1949, Ada Lum and her family fled to Hong Kong, where she continued her business and employed other Chi-nese refugees. At first she worked out of her home, but by 1962 she had a shop in the Mandarin Hotel. Her dolls were popular during the 1950s and Â60s and many were bought by American tourists. Ada Lum died in 1988. Value of your doll: about $75.Q: I have a 1920s tea cart made by the Paalman Furniture Co. of Grand Rapids, Mich. ItÂs in excellent condition. Can you tell me its value? A: Tea wagons, also called Âtea carts,ÂŽ became popular in the early 1920s. They have a tray top, one or two shelves below and wheels so they can be pushed from the kitchen to dining room. Some have leaves that can be extended for use as a table. Paalman Furniture Co. was one of the best-known makers of tea wagons. The company was founded by John H. Paal-man in 1916. He worked for several other furniture companies and was a designer and manager for Stickley before leav-ing to form Paalman Furniture Co. The company was sold in 1966. Vintage tea carts sell well today. Value of your tea wagon: $250-$300. Q: I have a sugar and creamer set from the Pine Ridge Sioux Indians. I purchased them at a yard sale about 20 years ago. On the bottom it is signed ÂO. CottierÂŽ and ÂPine Ridge Sioux.ÂŽ It is also marked with a pine tree design. I did some research. Olive Cottier is a sister of Ella Irving, aka Ella Woody aka Ella Cox, whose pottery is in the Smithsonian Institution. Just wondering if there is any value to my sugar and creamer set. A: In the 1930s, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) set up a pro-gram to teach students at the Pine Ridge Indian reservation boarding school how to make pottery. Experienced artists and potters were brought in to teach. Olive Cottier (1909-1974) and her sisters, Ella and Bernice, were students in the pro-gram. Sometime after the WPA program ended, Ella bought a building in Pine Ridge, S.D., where the sisters continued to make pottery from local clays. Ella and Olive made the pottery and Bernice decorated it. Their pottery closed in the 1980s. Your sugar and creamer set is worth about $75. Tip: Save your broken dishes, vases and other decorative china to make mosaic stepping stones or tabletops for your garden. Chipped vases can still be used for flowers or turned upside to make toad homes. Q Â„ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

With more than 4,000 applicants from 50 states and 75 countries, 3,793 restaurants earned awards this year, including 11 cruise ships in their first year of eligibility. The results are pub-lished, along with stories about some of the top winners, in the Aug. 31 edition of Wine Spectator. Palm Beach County was no exception, with restaurants up and down its coast receiving accolades. According to the magazine editors, this yearÂs trends include the following: ÂWe see lists becoming more diverse. ItÂs become a badge of honor for som-meliers to offer wines from the most far-flung regions and obscure grape varieties. The range of flavors is sim-ply amazing,... Yet thereÂs also renewed emphasis on the classics.ÂŽ ÂChampagne selections are exploding, with a focus on small growers and specific terroirs.ÂŽ Burgundy is once again very trendy, ItalyÂs Piedmont is gaining and Bor-deaux, considered somewhat boring a few years ago, is making a comeback. More lists are going digital, with more iPad and other tablets in use to present selections and supplemental information. ÂWhatever the format of the list, or its emphasis, the best restaurants build their wine programs the old-school way. They train their servers. They invest in their cellars. They offer selections keyed to their menus. And they respect, and showcase, the best wines in the world.ÂŽ There are three levels of awards, based on the depth of wines available and how well they match the menu: Q Award of Excellence: 2,870 winners. These restaurants offer a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. Typically the lists will feature at least 100 selec-tions. Q Best of Award of Excellence: 850 winners. These restaurants exceed the requirements of the award of excellence by displaying vintage depth with verti-cal offerings of several top producers from major regions or excellent breadth over several winegrowing regions. Typ-ically they offer 400 or more selections, superior presentation, and some offer more than 1,000 selections. Q Grand Award: 73 winners. The top level award is awarded to restau-rants with Âuncompromising, passion-ate devotion to the quality of their wine program.ÂŽ Typically they have more than 1,500 selections, with a serious breadth of top producers, outstand-ing depth in mature vintages, a selec-tion of large format bottles, excellent harmony with the menu, and superior organization, presentation and wine service. There are two perennials in Florida: HMF (formerly LÂEscalier) at The Breakers in Palm Beach, and BernÂs Steak House in Tampa. Local restaurants that won awards this year (Awards of Excellence, unless otherwise noted) are as follows: Q Juno Beach: Captain Charlies Reef Grill. Q North Palm Beach: RuthÂs Chris Steak House Q Palm Beach: Angle, The RitzCarlton (now Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa); Cafe Boulud Â„ Best of Award of Excellence; Cafe LÂEurope Â„ Best of Award of Excellence; The Flagler Steak-house; HMF, The Breakers Â„ Grand Award Winner (28,000 bottles, 1,550 selections, winner since 1981); Trevini Ristorante Q Palm Beach Gardens: Cafe Chardonnay; The Capital Grille; The River House Restaurant; Seasons 52 (recog-nized for inexpensive wines) Q West Palm Beach: The Blind Monk (new and recognized for inex-pensive wines); City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill; MarcelloÂs La Sirena Â„ Best of Award of Excellence; MortonÂs, The Steakhouse; RuthÂs Chris Steakhouse In their first year of eligibility, there are 11 Award of Excellence winners (for the main dining room on each ship).

The patties of ground chickpeas combine crisp and chewy textures with a mix of flavors that add up to hearty lunch. At The Pita Grille, it comes wrapped in one of the namesake pitas with a mix of lettuce all drizzled with just the right amount of cool tahini. Also worth noting: the fresh slaw was topped with a slightly tangy dressing and tossed with currants, which lent a sweet note. It was the perfect mix that made for a near perfect lunch. Q Â„ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE ÂWe do more than just feed you,ÂŽ says Eddie Estevez. ÂWe are a very interactive restaurant and we make sure you have a good time.ÂŽ Mr. Estevez, general manager of Cantina Laredo, was born in Coral Gables, where he not only had a passion for cooking, but also for art. Though Mr. Estevez earned an associate of fine arts degree from Miami Dade College and an associate of sci-ence degree from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, one could argue that he has put his art skills to work as a chef. ÂWe do a lot of tableside presentations,ÂŽ he says. ÂThatÂs what makes the experience.ÂŽ As the son of Cuban exiles, and living in places such as San Juan and Caracas, Mr. Estevez says that he was exposed to all types of cuisine. Howev-er, Cuban cuisine became his specialty after working at his cousinÂs restaurant in Miami. Continuing to study art as well as pursue a career in the culinary indus-try, Mr. Estevez says that he moved to New York in 1993. Cooking, serving, bartending and working hard is what led him to open restaurants in New York, New Jersey, The Bahamas and Florida. After living in The Bahamas for eight years, Mr. Estevez says that he not only opened multiple exciting restaurants, but he also met his wife. ÂSheÂs my biggest fan and best support system,ÂŽ he says. ÂItÂs hard to find that in this industry.ÂŽ Together the couple returned to the states, where Mr. Estevez says he worked as kitchen manager at ChiliÂs in Wellington. But it was in 2007, when Mr. Estevez joined Consolidated Restaurant Co., that he began as executive chef at Can-tina Laredo. Mr. Estevez opened a second location in Hallandale in 2010. With everything made from scratch, Cantina Laredo offers tableside guaca-mole, fajitas and tacos. Mr. Estevez says he would compare the food to Mexico City cuisine. ÂOur food is about freshness. ItÂs not about being heavy and saucy like TexMex,ÂŽ he says. ÂWe want to change a personÂs perception of what Mexican food really is.ÂŽ Name: Eddie Estevez Age: 47 Original hometown: Coral Gables Restaurant: Cantina Laredo, 4635 PGA Blvd., Midtown, Palm Beach Gar-dens; 622-1223 Mission: ÂWe want to let people know what we have to offer. We want to give our guests the whole dining experience with everything from great service to great food.ÂŽ Cuisine: Modern Mexican cuisine What is your footwear of choice in the kitchen? ÂI usually wear nonskid shoes that I get from Shoes for Crews. I like to get an executive-style shoe so that I can be in the front and back of the house.ÂŽ What is your guilty culinary pleasure? ÂSouthern fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy!ÂŽ What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef or proprietor? ÂItÂs important to learn everything about the business. ItÂs long hours and you need to be committed and have a strong support system. I believe that actually being in the field is how you gain experience to learn the front and back operations.ÂŽ Q In the kitchen with...EDDIE ESTEVEZ, Cantina Laredo BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Cool Beans Indoor Playground & Cafe, at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, will host ÂA Day for Evan,ÂŽ in memory of manager Evan Kaufman, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 28. The fundraiser, which will include arts and crafts and free face painting throughout the day, celebrates the late 21-year-old Cool Beans manager, who died in a car crash in May. All proceeds from the Downtown at the Gardens carousel and train, as well as 50 percent of admission to the Cool Beans playground on July 28 will be donated to the Mandel JCC, a non-prof-it organization close to EvanÂs heart. Evan grew up at the JCC in West Palm Beach. As a teen, he worked at the JCC as a lifeguard, preschool camp counselor, and a Camp Shalom staff person. The donation will benefit the Evan Kaufman Kavod award, created to rec-ognize those who demonstrated the same honor and integrity of the JCCÂs mission statement that Evan did. A plaque will hang in the Mandel JCC and be updated each year with the award recipientsÂ name. ÂEvan would be proud to see how the community has rallied together on his behalf to support the JCCÂs Kavod fund created in his name, and it warms my heart to see how many lives he touched in his 21 years. Helping children in the community was one of his passions; every guest at the playground could see that,ÂŽ said Maxine Kaufman, EvanÂs mother. For more information about the fundraiser, call Cool Beans at 6271782 or visit CoolBeansPlayCafe.com.

Each of the dinnerÂs five courses will be complemented by a wine selection chosen by noted marine artist and wine connoisseur Carey Chen, who will be on hand for the dinner. It is set for 6 p.m. July 30 at 50 Ocean, 50 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach. Cost is $75 per person, plus tax and gratu-ity. There will be complimentary valet parking.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY REACHING NORTHERN PALM BEACH COUNTYÂ’S MOST SOPHISTICATED READERSFlorida WeeklyÂ’s monthly guide to Looking, Feeling and Living BetterhealthyJULY 2013 IF YOU ASK THE AVERAGE PERSON ON THE street, he or she is likely to tell you that hospice is a place where people go to die. People might tell you that hospice is one large, nationwide organization with ÂfacilitiesÂŽ in each county or that all hospices are pretty much the same, and that services are provided for free. While these are common perceptions, they are not correct. Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. There are over 5,300 hospice organizations in the U.S. Their common goal is to improve a patientÂs quality of life dur-ing his or her last six months, by offer-ing a program of comfort and dignity. In addition, they serve the entire family, living SEE HOSPICE, B2 XBY RICHARD F. CALCOTE, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICERHospice of Palm Beach County & Broward County HOSPICE CARE With not all being the same, your knowledge may affect the type of care your family receives INSIDEBodhi Hot Yoga: Relive stress, relax / B3 Exercise bene cial for caregivers / B4 To stretch or not to stretch/ B5
not just the patient. In my observation, hospice may be the only healthcare field remaining where doctors still make true Âhouse callsÂŽ Â„ a practice that some of us remember as the standard years ago. Most hospice care is provided in a patientÂs home by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social work-ers and other professionals. Families help guide the care of their loved ones as the ÂcaptainsÂŽ of the team. Yet beyond this common basis, hospices can vary greatly Â„ from their approach to care, to innovation in clini-cal techniques, to the range of services they offer, to the financial structure of their organizations. Why each hospice is different: It all comes back to profitSome of the key differences that can affect your familyÂs care are whether the hospice is for-profit or nonprofit, the size of the organization, and how patient-centered its philosophy is. First, hereÂs a quick summary of the difference between a for-profit orga-nization and a nonprofit. A for-profit organization functions to financially benefit its owners and/or shareholders. Profit is the goal, and the business pays taxes on that profit and distributes a portion of the remainder as dividends. A nonprofit organization is guided by a mission, does not pay taxes, and uses its funds exclusively to operate and fulfill its mission. To maintain its nonprofit status, the organization must submit to extensive public oversight and provide its financial records to the community. A nonprofit organization should make a surplus (profit) rather than a deficit, but those funds MUST be used solely for reinvestment back into its mission. In the case of a hos-pice, this means surplus funds go back to patient care. Most hospice patients are covered under the Medicare Part A benefit and all licensed and certified hospices must comply with state laws and the Code of Federal Regulations governing hospice care. Nonprofits can also solicit com-munity donations directly or through a foundation, and as a result can often provide more special programs and services than for-profits. They have the freedom to fund programs they con-sider to be important for patients and families, even if those services arenÂt paid for by insurance. Where Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance stop, the community efforts begin. If you have experienced nonprofit hospice care for a loved one, you are aware that the needs of families are very deep at this time of life. Your local communityÂs donations prob-ably affected your journey. The most innovative hospices are those that, through donations, care for the whole person in ways that reach beyond tra-ditional medical care. The programs are far-reaching and varied, such as music therapy, clinical massage therapy, Reiki, aromatherapy, ongoing spiritual counseling, and extensive bereavement counseling for children and adults. Hospice is one of the few industries where nonprofits are the primary inno-vators In most industries, the for-profits have the funds to be innovative. Non-profits simply donÂt have the resources. Yet throughout the nation, itÂs the nonprofit hospices that are breaking the traditional ÂmoldÂŽ or approach to care. For example, most hospices require that you cease curative treatments before receiving their care. Because Hospice of Palm Beach County & Bro-ward County has focused on develop-ing the resources for better patient care, we are one of only 4 percent in the nation capable of offering an Âopen access program.ÂŽ Under this program, we offer discretionary, non-curative treatments such as transfusions, radia-tion, intravenous medications and chemotherapy to alleviate patient dis-comfort. These open-access programs are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance. Without the support from the local community, patient care beyond the basics would be much more difficult to accomplish.SequestrationÂ’s effects have arrived Â… and they affect even hospicesWith the onset of sequestration from Congress, funding through donations and hospice foundations has become more important than ever before. This summer, all hospices are facing a dou-ble effect from sequestration. First, as of April 1, 2013, all hospices received a 2 percent reimbursement cut from Medicare across the board. Sec-ond, that same 2 percent cut affected physicians of all different specialties, and prompted a trend to delay refer-rals and admission to hospice programs until patients are nearer to death. Yet from a medical standpoint, research shows that hospice patients actually have better quality of life, have reduced hospitalizations, and, in some cases, live longer than they otherwise would have. The reason is as simple as you might guess: They are living life to the fullest. For consumers, the most important thing is to be aware of the options available to you and your loved ones, and to be cognizant of the differences. Talk through the options with your doctor. You should keep your doctor very involved in your loved oneÂs care, even when you enroll him or her in hospice. Look for a nonprofit hospice provider with a patient-centered phi-losophy. Check the services offered, which will vary even among nonprof-its. With the changing healthcare cli-mate, itÂs important for you and your family to research your medical care thoroughly. And no matter what your journey, make today as special as it can be.

A s founder of Bodhi Hot Yoga, I am truly connected to the word ÂAwaken.ÂŽIt is by definition in sanskrit exactly what the name Bodhi itself means. Although to me personally, the word means much more than a lingual expression. To me the name Bodhi, or awaken, means a physical, mental and emotional state that comes through, in my opinion Â„ YOGA! Think about it Â„ what if we set our intention at the beginning of each class to awaken. How present would our yoga practice automatically shift to a feeling of truly being present. All of a sudden, the happenings of the day melt away and what you are left with is the present moment with heightened senses. Now carry this new ÂsenseÂŽ of awakenings through the practice. Touch. Begin to feel the feet ground down through the mat as you lengthen up through the spine. Sweat may begin to develop touching the brow as you inhale and exhale the warm hot yoga room air. The body is already moving even standing in this stillness. See. As you open your eyes, notice your focus, not on your other class-mates around you or the possible mirror image in front of you, but your dristi. Even in the most challenging poses, itÂs this constant focus inward and outward that holds your alignment, builds strength, and Â„ most importantly Â„ mental clar-ity. ItÂs ironic that this focus causes the rest of your worries and stress to blur away. Hear.Hear the sound of your breath as it victoriously washes over the back of your throat. Now possibly also hear the background music that your teacher has chosen, which sets the mood of the class. Not necessarily fixating on either, but noticing the rhythm as the body begins to dance, forming media-tion through movement as you flow between postures. Taste.You are probably dripping in sweat by now as the body releases all sorts of tox-ins. Negative emotions, pent-up stress, and long days just waiting to be sweat out. You realize that the taste of sweat is not only salty, but somehow sweet as it means you are working and releasing. Crying releases this same salty good-ness whether they are tears of sadness or happiness. Each mean a chance to heal and renew, which is what you are enjoying in every challenging pose as you continue to awaken. Smell.As you lay in final savasana, essential oil is sprayed into the palm of your hand. With each breath you smell this intoxicating relaxing scent, inhaling strength and gratitude and exhaling any remaining thoughts. It is in this thoughtless resting state that you are truly ÂAwakened.ÂŽ All sens-es ignited, all positive affirmations con-firmed. As you step off your mat, you are ready to take on the world!

Wellness and the Hospice CaregiverCycling as a pathway to health for those who care for others T he desire to care for others is an admirable trait to be sure. As a loving family member, you may find yourself at a stage where you are responsible for the in-home care of a relative reach-ing the end of life. Or perhaps you are a hospice professional delivering services to your clients on a daily basis. Whatever your personal cir-cumstances, you undoubtedly know that the emotional, social, mental and especially physical stresses of your job are enormous. These stressful demands can take a tremendous toll on any caregiverÂs body and lead to serious illness, depression and burnout. An excellent self-assessment tool, which may provide insight into how one is coping, is available free from the Ameri-can Medical Asso-ciation. The 18-ques-tion survey (easily located online) asks caregivers to answer yes or no to state-ments prefaced by the phrase, ÂDuring the past week or so I haveÂƒÂŽ Survey questions include: Â€ Felt completely overwhelmed. Â€ Felt a loss of privacy and/or personal time. Â€ Been edgy or irritable.Â€ Had back pain.Â€ Felt ill. Once you have identified your need for personal help, check with your hospice organiza-tion for a list of local support groups and respite care to help address your emo-tional needs. Then talk with your personal phy-sician to determine if designing a week-ly exercise program might be benefi-cial to your overall physical well-being. Ten minutes of brisk aerobic exercise a day is a good place to begin. If you need to be immediately available to your care receiver, you might measure a walking track around the inside of your house to do at a specified time each day. Or, consider acquir-ing a stationary bike to pedal for 10 minutes several times each day. Outdoor activities, such as swimming, walking or cycling, are preferable whenever brief respite care for the family member can be arranged. ÂA short ride on a lifestyle bicycle can provide an excellent entry level outdoor activity for a busy caregiver,ÂŽ states Julie Goforth of the OYM Performance Center Team. ÂIndividuals are always welcome to come by the store to complete an interview process and ask questions when considering starting or upgrading a cycling program of any type,ÂŽ she continues. At least two and a half hours of aerobic exercise per week should be the hospice caregiverÂs ultimate goal in order to estab-lish a personal level of wellness. In addition to increasing the capacity of the lungs and heart musculature, regular aerobic exercise improves bone health, balance and a general feeling of well-being. ÂWe often see recreation-alists become enthusiasts. WeÂre happy to help any level of cyclist achieve their personal fitness goals,ÂŽ OYM co-owner Matt Goforth concludes.

HOT DEAL Awaken. FLORIDA WEEKLY JULY 2013 B5 To stretch or not to stretch? The answer is: Stretch S hould I stretch before or after I exercise?Should I even bother to stretch at all? These are the questions that every busy adult asks whenever he or she is planning to begin an exercise program. The correct answer to the first question is ÂDo whatever is right for you.ÂŽ Some people need to lengthen their major muscle groups, such as the quad-riceps (front of the thigh), hamstrings (back of the thigh), and calves, before they run, walk, swim, and/or lift weights for exercise. For others, itÂs best to stretch at the end of a workout, re-length-ening the major mus-cle groups so theyÂll be ready to help you move through the rest of your day. The answer to the second question is ÂYes, stretching is important for every-body and is often the missing link in trying to understand why you injured yourself when you were exercising.ÂŽ Stretching helps you either warm up or cool down, whichever is needed for you to get the most out of your exercise. Not stretching in the way that you need puts you on the fast track to sustaining an exercise-related injury. As always, prevention is the best policy. A dynamic warm-up is a fun and entertain-ing supplement or replacement, at times, to stretching if youÂre a stretch-first person. In a dynamic warm-up, you take important joints such as your hips, shoulders and lower back through complete ranges of motion, using large muscle groups for support. Dynamic warm-up activities are similar to core strengthening exercises and have unique names such as scorpion, hip crossover, drop lunge, and quad circles. You can mix-and-match a variety of dynamic warm-up activities on different workout days, creating ongoing interest that helps you maintain your exercise routine. A dynamic cool-down can serve as a similar supplement or replacement to stretching, at times, if youÂre a stretch-after person. If youÂve been walking or running, rather than simply completing your walk or run, spend an additional few minutes walking or running with shorter strides and/or at a slower pace. Walking backward at a slow pace is another method for achieving a dynamic cool-down. If youÂve been lifting weights, a series of deep-knee lunges will stretch your lower back and hips. A yoga-style down-ward dog will lengthen your spine, ham-strings, and calf muscles. Moving your arms through big circles, both clockwise and counterclockwise, will open up your shoulder girdles and lengthen the muscles of your rotator cuffs. Regardless of the method you choose, stretching is an important part of your regular exercise activities. The extra few minutes spent either warming up or cooling down will help you maintain your exercise program achieve long-term health and well-being.Â„ Sources: McHugh MP, Cosgrave CH: To stretch or not to stretch: the role of stretching in injury prevention and performance.

One way to treat dry eyes is to prescribe lubricating eye drops, commonly referred to as Âartificial tears.ÂŽ These drops may alleviate the dry, scratchy feeling. The next step would be to prescribe eye drops called Resta-sis, which help your body produce more tears by reducing inflammation often associated with dry-eye syndrome. Silicone plugs Â„ temporary or permanent Â„ known as Lacri-mal or Punctual Plugs Â„ can be inserted in lacri-mal (tear) drain-age ducts in your eyelids to help keep tears on your eye from draining away. These can be inserted pain-lessly while you are in our office. These plugs are not felt once inserted. Doctors sometimes recommend special nutritional supplements for dry eyes, as studies have shown that supple-ments containing omega-3 fatty acids can decrease dry-eye symptoms, drink-ing more water can sometimes help, too, as mild dehydration often makes dry-eye problems worse. This is espe-cially true in hot, dry and windy weath-er conditions. Activities where the blink rate is reduced, such as when reading (espe-cially under a ceiling fan), may also worsen dry-eye symptoms. If the prob-lem is environmental, wear sunglasses when outdoors to reduce exposure to sun, wind and dust. In our Optical Department we carry special eyewear designed for dry-eye patients. The spe-cial frames are available for everyday visual needs or as sunglasses.

A common misperception about hospice is that it is somewhere people go. While hospice can be provided in a hospice center, most hospice care is provided in the personÂs home, including assisted living facilities. Many assisted living facili-ties fully embrace working with the family and hospice program to provide comfort and sup-port to residents at the end of life. The hospice phi-losophy of care is very much aligned with the assisted living model of promoting quality of life, dignity and personalized care in the residentÂs assisted living home. Hospices typically partner with family members, assisted living providers and other caregivers to treat the person holistically by providing medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support and counseling to the person and family members. Hospice works with the assisted living community and the family to develop a coordinated plan of care focused on facilitating the highest quality of life by supporting the personÂs prefer-ences and needs, and educating caregivers and family members. Hospice services are covered by Medi-care, Medicaid and often, private insur-ances. Volunteers, paid caregivers and others are often used to augment both the assisted living and hospice services for persons in need of constant supervision or care. When a hospice plan of care is devel-oped, the goal is typically to enable the dying person to remain living at home until the end. However, there are some situations that may require the person to be moved to an environment where more skilled care can be provided on a 24-hour basis. This is sometimes the result of state regulatory requirements, but can also be due to the person developing a condi-tion that requires care that is not available or is unable to be provided in the personÂs assisted living home. At St. JosephÂs we recognize that seniors would prefer to be at home Â„ however, assisted living can be the next best thing. St. JosephÂs of Jupiter provides an elegant and affordable lifestyle enriched with amenities that enhance care, com-fort and wellness. Our services include medication management, rehabilitation, diabetic management, physician services, fall prevention and hospice. Come and see what makes St. JosephÂs different.
