Her mammogram did not pick it up. She too chose to have a lumpectomy. She too went through chemotherapy and radiation. They endearingly refer to themselves as the breast cancer twins, finding laughter and solace in the synchronicities of their disease. But they have their differences. Ms. Young conjures up Zora Neale Hurston. Her stories are personal. And as she shares them, you envision a scene where you can see yourself doing the same. Ms. Golub has more of a Shirley MacLaine way. She’s smart, funny and quick with a metaphor. She takes a pronounced breath before she speaks and you revel in it because you know whatever she says, it will be good. Looking back over their course of treatment, these women lend the strength of perspective and the weightlessness of no regret. When they ponder prophylactic or preventive mastectomies, they understand how fear and family history might lead to such extremes. Sitting down with Florida Weekly, they discuss the debate over screen-ing and they agree: If mammography makes women vigilant, it’s a good thing.

FLORIDA WEEKLY’S ANNUAL ISSUE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH SEE CHEMO, A15 XSusan Kristoff has a demanding full-time job, fighting the mutant cells she’s lived with for 11 years. Cancer keeps her on the road, traveling from her condo in West Palm Beach to her sister’s place in Orlando as she seeks the most effective treatments. That has included Tykerb, a pill taken at home as a more targeted and less painful alternative to chemotherapy at a clinic. But her insurance plan required a co-pay of $3,000 per month because the medi-cine comes in the form of pills — while a co-pay for traditional chemotherapy at a clinic was around $50 or less. Cancer patients in Florida have faced this disparity between the cost of pills and clinical visits for years. Now, thanks to the advocacy efforts of people like Ms. Krist-off and groups such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, that’s changing. The 2013 Cancer Treatment Fairness Act requires that Florida insurers provide coverage for oral cancer drugs that is on par with traditional treatments such as those delivered intravenously. It’s set to take effect July 1, 2014.

But I have been asked to, and if I hadnt been asked to, I would have volunteered any-way, like Neil Armstrong, who volunteered to fly into space and who became the first man to set foot on the moon. Breasts are like moons, of course, conical moons, where every man and woman is the first to set foot. Or at least every man and woman first sets toothless gums. What it comes down to, whether in a lunar landing module or a set of toothless gums, is this: All of us begin life at the breast. Therefore, no one can deny that breasts number among the most powerful forces in our evolving lives. So what do we do about it?We do what we would do if our mothers handed us a 50-percent share in Apple, or a diamond mine, or Ted Turners ranch in Montana, or a 12,000-square-foot home on the water surrounded by five or 10 acres of private beachfront: We honor breasts by taking care of them. Any breasts. All breasts. A breast is a precious thing. Two breasts are twice as precious. Breasts, and not anything else, are really the source of life. While all of that seems obvious, it isnt „ not to the many who try to ignore breasts. After weve first landed on them as infants, and perhaps allowing for one or two other occasional uses, figures this army of the oblivious, breasts just get in the way. Im not the first one to point this out.Men in particular are guilty of this massive miscalculation „ they have breasts, too. And more importantly, so do the women in their lives. A lot of problems arise from the neglect of breasts by both men and women, and the largest one is poor health. Im pulling punches, though. The largest problem that springs from neglect is mor-tality. Between now and about the first of October next year „ in that 12-month period „ roughly 200 people are likely to die from breast cancer on the southwest coast alone, and as many more in Palm Beach County. Those numbers are demonstrable, but theyre not inevitable. Theyre so high, according to such unassailable organizations as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, because many women and men do not encourage each other „ first, to seek annual mammograms over the age of 40, and second, to learn from their doctors how to conduct their own breast exams by touch. When it comes to breast cancer, discovery is everything. Find a problem early, and you or the women you love (and even the men, occasionally) can reasonably plan on living a long life. Let it go long, and the real trouble starts. Another problem that arises from such neglect, therefore, is aesthetic: Here at Florida Weekly, we have to keep printing editions on pink paper once each year during Breast Cancer Awareness month.This may be one of the most painful expressions of sympathy, empathy and reminder (memo to self: get a mammogram, learn to check) ever invented by God or journalist.No doubt it violates every law of good taste ever laid down in the Great Book of Aesthetic Virtue, but we ignore that. Health is more important, especially healthy breasts. There are some other things that can be carried out in the fight to make breasts more prominently a part of the public conscious-ness. For example, you can spend a lot more time at nude beaches, either looking at breasts or displaying them, as is your wont. Afterward, of course, you can form discus-sion groups and write press releases for submission to local newspapers, radio and television stations describing this process. Even more importantly, nowadays, is the use of social media. We encourage regular and even prolific exchanges about breasts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, for example. Also, it might be helpful for women, in particular, to name their breasts, the way they might name their dogs or their children, and to insist that others give their titled breasts the respect they deserve.New York Times best-selling author Darynda Jones agrees with us, apparently. She offers this helpful exchange in her book, First Grave on the RightŽ: My fore-parts, as you so ineloquently put it, have names. I pointed to my right breast. This is Danger. Then my left. And this is Will Robinson. I would appreciate it if you addressed them accordingly. After a long pause in which he took the time to blink several times, he asked, You named your breasts? I turned my back to him with a shrug.I named my ovaries, too, but they dont get out as much.Ž At Florida Weekly, names like DangerŽ and Will RobinsonŽ strike us as slightly lim-ited. We prefer fuller, more robust, more bux-omly feminine names (at least for the breasts of females), such as Alexandrie, or Gabrielle, or Valentina, or Mme. Marie Antonia Josepha Johanna Antoinette. But just Queenie and Beanie will do in a pinch. Not Danger,Ž though „ never. Breasts dont wear sunglasses, after all, and we dont want to imply that there is anything danger-ous about them in the first place. Do we?Well no, not breasts that have been checked, carefully, both for decent names and for lumps. Of course, its only fair to warn our readers that some danger indeed does exist in decid-ing not to ignore breasts in ways we have previously ignored them. Let me conclude, then, with this passage, in which a paterfamilias attempts to recite a favorite family story and gets a couple of key words wrong, from the writer Patrick Rothfuss. Take it for what its worth. The wild women in his lap,Ž my father enthused, laying their breasts on his head. There was a moment of stunned silence. Then my mother spoke sl owly, with an edge to her voice. I think you mean wild beasts laying their heads in his lap.Ž Do I?Ž Q a o o s A roger

OPINIONThe dangers of Russian exceptionalism rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly In his instantly notorious New York Times op-ed, Vladimir Putin was much too modest. At the end, he argued no country is truly exceptional. He, of all people, shouldnt be so dismissive. Rus-sian exceptionalism is one of the pro-foundest forces in world history. Without it, not nearly as many people would have been sunk in tyranny for centuries, casually sacrificed to the whims of their rulers, and immiserated. It has been the basis for the absolute power of czars and of Soviet dictators, and its spirit lives on in the amoral, law-less rule of Russias top opinion writer. If you want to understand the essence of American exceptionalism, you can quote Patrick Henry or the Declaration of Independence. If you want a taste of the Russian version, you can do worse than the anecdote about Czar Nicholas II „ fated to suffer an ugly end at the hands of the communists „ who was asked by a Western diplomat about regaining public confidence. The czar wanted to know whether he was supposed to regain the confidence of the people, or the other way around? Throughout its history, Russia has labored under what the historian David Satter calls the quasi-deification of the Russian state,Ž its special mission overawing picayune considerations of individual liberty or dignity. Given its geographic vulnerability, with Mongol or Turkish invaders per-petually threatening, the Russian state required a vast military establishment and universal conscription. Under these conditions,Ž historian Richard Pipes writes, there could be no society independent of the state. ... The entire Russian nation was enserfed: There was room here neither for a privileged aris-tocracy, nor for a class of self-governing burghers, nor yet for a rural yeomanry.Ž In the West, private property constituted a check on the power of govern-ment absolutism. In Russia, the mon-arch owned the entire realm up until the late 18th century, so there was no need to convene a parliament to exact taxes „ and no leverage for the kind of revolt against the crown that forged the Magna Carta in England. People did gain political and civil rights in the early 20th century. Almost immediately they were snuffed out again in a violent revolution. It brought to power a mass-murdering dictator-ship that sought the utt er destruction of every hint of life independent of the state. Vladimir Putin may scorn American exceptionalism, but we have a deep-rooted inheritance of liberty. As James Bennett and Michael Lotus demonstrate in their new book, America 3.0,Ž Ameri-can exceptionalism is a centuries-old phenomenon growing out of organic English roots: the nuclear family, com-mon law, representative government, constitutional limits on the state and private ownership of land. It makes for a political culture hostile to autocracy and therefore deeply at odds with Russian exceptionalism. Speaking of Russia,Ž the 19th-century Russian philosopher Pyotr Chaadaev wrote, people always imagine that they are speaking of a country that is like the others. In fact, it is not so at all. Russia is a whole separate world, submissive to the will, caprice, fantasy of one man „ no matter whether he be called Peter or Ivan.Ž Or, he must imagine and hope, Vladimir. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Americans say ‘no’ to another Middle East warThe likelihood of peace in Syria remains distant, as the civil war there rages on. But the grim prospect of a U.S. strike has been forestalled, if only temporarily, preventing a catastrophic deepening of the crisis there. The Amer-ican people stood up for peace, and for once, the politicians listened. Across the political spectrum, citizens in the U.S. weighed in against the planned military strike. Members of Congress, Democrat and Republican, were inundated with calls and emails demanding they vote noŽ on any military authorization. The media credits Russian President Vladimir Putin with extending a life-line to President Barack Obama, allow-ing him a diplomatic way to delay his planned attack. But without the mass domestic public outcry against a mili-tary strike, Obama would not have need-ed, nor would he likely have heeded, an alternative to war. At center stage was Secretary of State John Kerry, testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Sept. 4. Anti-war activists from Code Pink sat silently behind him, their hands held high, painted red, symbolizing blood. Kerry asserted: Now I remember Iraq. ... Secretary Hagel and I both voted in the United States Senate. Both of us are especially sensitive to never again ask any member of Congress to vote on faulty intelligence. And that is why our intelligence community took time, thats why the president took time to make certain of the facts ... in order to scrub and rescrub the evidence and present the facts to the American people.Ž Days earlier, Kerry used the phrase we knowŽ close to 30 times in his Aug. 30 case for war against Syria. So now that we know what we know, the ques-tion we must all be asking is what we will do,Ž Kerry said, reminiscent of similar pre-war ramblings of Donald Rumsfeld, who actually said: There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we dont know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we dont know we dont know.Ž You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time,Ž Abraham Lincoln famously quipped, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.Ž After 12 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, thousands dead, tens of thousands maimed and trillions of dollars spent, the U.S. public wont take the rehearsed oratory of an appointed official as sufficient grounds for war. Citizens of the United Kingdom weighed in, pushing their Parliament to vote against a military strike. What are the facts? The regime of Bashar al-Assad stands accused of a heinous attack using chemical weap-ons, on August 21, in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta. A United Nations chemical-weapons inspection team arrived in Damascus, remarkably, three days before the attack. Its mission was to investigate allegations of chemical weapons use from last spring, in the towns of Khan al-Assal, Sheikh Maq-sood and Saraqeb. U.N. Secretary-Gen-eral Ban Ki-moon redirected the team to investigate Ghouta, and, after pro-tracted negotiations with the Assad gov-ernment, the weapons inspectors were allowed to do their work. In their 40-page report, the inspectors summarize clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were used.Ž They did not say who launched the missiles, but they did examine the remnants of several of the rockets used. The team, directed by Swedish chemi-cal weapons expert Ake Sellstrom, per-formed swift and exacting work under difficult circumstances (they were fired on by a sniper on their way to Ghouta). A war crime was committed in Ghouta. Kerry says we knowŽ it was Assad. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov countered, We have serious grounds to believe that it was a provocation,Ž suggesting the Syrian rebels staged the attack in order to draw the U.S. mili-tary into their fight against the Assad regime. As a result of this weeks developments, serious progress has been made. Syria has agreed to put its chemical weapons under international control. Iran, which strongly supports the Assad regime, has a new president, Hassan Rouhani, who will come to New York next week to address the United Nations General Assembly. He is expected to speak on the same day as President Obama. More importantly, Rouhani and Obama may actually speak to each other, the first meeting between U.S. and Iranian presidents since 1979. The terrible, ongoing tragedy in Syria, and the U.S. publics persistent opposi-tion to a military strike, could possibly create an opening for a much broader peace in the Middle East.

PATTI KHULYUniversal UclickAs a veterinarian who practices in a warm climate, treating feral and free-roaming cats is a year-round adven-ture. Trap, test, sterilize, vaccinate and releaseŽ is my mantra when it comes to dealing with this population of patients. But in recent years, Ive taken to adding one more thing to that list: ear-tipping.Tipping feline ears is a simple technique that requires an almost bloodless snip of the left ear to help identify the cats as having been sterilized and vaccinated. As such, its considered a purely cosmetic procedure, which I know doesnt exactly sound like a good thing. But because its performed with the cats best interests in mind, this procedure definitely gets a pass on the animal welfare-o-meter. In case youre new to this concept, heres a primer on ear-tipping: The ear-tipŽ is a highly effective device that those who care for feral cat colonies use to monitor the success of their efforts. It also helps animal control officials know which colonies of cats are well-managed and stable. Not only is it useful, but unlike a canine ear crop, its also considered absolutely painless when performed under anesthesia. In fact, cats uniformly recover without pawing at their ears or showing any other sign of distress related to the loss of this tiny bit of cartilage. Nonetheless, there is a downside to ear-tipping: Many people are reluctant to adopt cats with tipped ears. They view it as a slight on the animals natural beauty. I ear-tip only the homeless who come my way as feral or free-roaming cats. These freebieŽ surgical candidates may leave my hospital and find loving for-ever homes, but the reality is that most will not. The really dismal reality is that all but the most friendly, healthy and comely will land back on the streets. Thats why my policy is to ear-tip almost all of them. Heres more of why: 1. Public safety: Since ear-tipped cats are typically rabies-vaccinated, identifying them as such enhances the safety of the human community at large. 2. Population management: Because ear-tipping helps in managing a communitys colonies, it promotes the welfare of its stray populations. 3. Feline protection: Its the right thing to do for the individual cat. A cat whos not ear-tipped may end up in sur-gery for altering that has already been done, and who wants another experi-ence under the knife? In communities where cats are targeted for eradication, ear-tipping can make the difference between a free-roaming cats life ... and lethal control. But because ear-tipping may reduce an individuals adoptability, Ive learned that concessions must sometimes be made to a cats demeanor and appear-ance, depending on her individual cir-cumstances. For example, is the cat truly wild, or a sweet, happens-to-be-home-less stray? Is the cat entering an estab-lished adoption program? Or is it at all possible that this strayŽ free-roamer might possibly belong to a neighbor, and is really someones pet? If the animal might be reasonably expected to have a home waiting for him, knowing as we do that humans may refuse to adopt a markedŽ specimen, Ill often opt for leaving the ear alone. Heres where some of you may wonder, Surely there has to be a better way! Plastic surgery just sounds so harsh!Ž But given the current realities inherent to modern feline existence, where entire colonies can be eradicated pending one municipal officials say-so, why leave a life-and-death issue to chance? If whats best for everyone „ especially for our free-roaming cats „ is that they get their ears tipped, why should aesthetics stand in the way?

Q


A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYMs. Golub and Ms. Young cannot help but wonder if food might be linked to the root of their disease: How does alter-ing food with hormones and preserva-tives play out anyway? They question the allocation of money at Susan G. Komen for the Cure: Why doesnt the rainbow coalition of cancer come together, pool their resources and find out how cancer starts? And as far as cancer coming back, they take comfort in their chosen belief: Vodka kills my cancer cells.Ž Heres what else they had to say ƒFW: Considering all the changes in breast cancer care, how has your think-ing changed? Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differ-ent? Ms. Golub: Nothing. I did what I needed to do with medical seriousness and responsibility. And the rest of it, I did with a sense of humor ƒ The word survivorŽ doesnt mean how long you live, its how you live. Ms. Young: I dont even use survivor.Ž I say I am cancer-free ƒ Im 15 years free. FW: Did you ever entertain the thought of a mastectomy? Ms. Young: My surgery was scheduled for August. I went back to my doctor ƒ I said, Look, take it off. I dont need it.Ž He said, Wait a minute,Ž this is the surgeon without the greatest bedside manner, he tells it to you real fast. My aunt and stepmother were sitting there absorbing. I said, Well, what would you tell your wife?Ž He said, My wife would tell me the same thing youre telling me, Take if off. I dont need it. However, the statistics do not bear out what youre saying,Ž that if you remove it or you do the lumpectomy that your lifespan will be any different ƒ this is 1997. So he said, Let me know what you decide.Ž I went home. I got rid of my aunt and my stepmother because I couldnt deal with their emotions and mine, too. I fell on my knees. I cried. I prayed. I prayed and cried and cried and prayed until I crawled into my bed and went to sleep. And just before you wake up, your eyes havent opened and theres nobody in my house but me, I hear a voice and the voice says, Save your breasts.Ž I sat straight up in bed, looking around to see who that was, it just startled me. And I went, Thank you.Ž Called the doctor and said, OK. Ill do the lumpectomy.Ž ƒ The voice was the defining moment. I didnt know whether to take the whole thing or not. Well, like I say, I cried and prayed. And I got the answer. FW: How do you feel about prophylactic or preventative mastectomies? Do you feel theres more hysteria here? Do you feel American women have an over-awarenessŽ of breast cancer and are overly petrified? Ms. Young: Fear is a powerful emotion ƒ Knowledge is also power ƒ Hys-teria? They like to put that on women all the time. I dont think so. Knowledge? Yeah, were knowledgeable. Ms. Golub: When I was in college, a sophomore in college, I had a lump in my breast. It turned out to be a cyst. They operated on it. I was probably 18 years old. And I can remember go-ing in the operating room thinking, Well,Ž and in those days, they didnt do lumpectomies, I mean you woke up, you just had no breasts. And I was a baby. And I thought, Well, I will end up becoming Catholic and joining a convent because there will be no other place for me.Ž ƒ But it turned out to be a cyst ƒ it had nothing to do with my breast cancer ƒ so I dont know what I would do, but I do know that breast, ovarian, prostate, pancreatic and colon cancer are now, they know that theyre all genetically linked. I think that the more that they look at genes, the more that they know what genes can do, there may be other cancers related to that, so having a prophylactic mastectomy is only one part of the solution. A lot of women who are done bearing children will have their ovaries removed. I had a hysterectomy. I had my ovaries removed and that was fine. ƒ My gynecologist said lets take them out, so they were out and it was one less thing for anybody to be concerned about ... I think that its a very personal decision for a woman, her family and her doctor to make. FW: Do you feel its more of a psychological decision or a medical decision? Ms. Golub: As long as you dont become complacent about your healthcare. Its not a cure. Its not like a vaccine that says youre not going to get polio ƒ If I had a strong family history and seen bad outcomes, I might do it. Ms. Young: When I first got out of nursing school, my aunts friend had breast cancer and she was dead in six months. That reverberated in my mind with my initial statement to my doctor, How long do I have?Ž And I forgot about that until just now ƒ but I remem-ber seeing this woman dying, I mean, Ive seen a lot of death, but I remember seeing that and what she had and it was a secret then. It was a secret. You didnt tell anybody. Somewhere in my mind, Im seeing this picture of something that doesnt look nice, but I erased most of it. Ms. Golub: Mammograms were not available until the 60s. Radiation really burned people. They had terrible, con-cave holes in their chest. FW: Once you have radiation, you can never have radiation on that spot again, right? Ms. Golub: Yes. We have tattoos. See CONVERSATIONFrom page 1 ANDREW SPILOS/FLORIDA WEEKLY“The word survivor doesn’t mean how long you live, it’s how you live,” says Betsy Golub. FLORIDA WEEKLY'S ANNUAL ISSUE FLORIDAWEEKLY SANNUALISSUE FLORIDA WEEKLYS ANNUAL ISSUE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Betsy Golub found a lump in her breast. An hour later it was still there. “We all nd lumps and bumps, but there’s something in the back of your head that says this one is dif-ferent. You don’t know why, but you just know.” She went for a mammogram and ultrasound. She remembers waiting in her “johnny” gown, reading the same advertisement again and again. She needed a needle biopsy … now. The next day she got the call. She had an aggressive form of breast cancer. She remembers saying, “Listen, don’t hang up. I’m going to put the phone down and I’m going to cry for a minute, but don’t hang up on me.” She cried. She wrote down everything they told her. She thanked them. Ms. Golub had a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. She lost her hair, her eyebrows and her eyelashes. She is a 14-year breast can-cer survivor. She lives in West Palm Beach. She spent 10 years with the South Florida Komen afliate, was the 2012 race chair. She volunteers through Planned Parenthood and Obama for America, which has morphed into Organizing for America.


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 NEWS A9that little blue mark? We could not get red roses. Ms. Young: I say this to people sometimes when I meet them, You joined the sorority that you didnt want to be in, huh? OK. But were good sisters.Ž And the bond that we have is almost immedi-ate because, you know. Ms. Golub: Weve been down that same dark hall. FW: When you think back on radiation, would you have given more thought to going through radiation? Ms. Young: I didnt want to do it, but I did it. I did it out of fear. Ms. Golub: I did my radiation and they made me feel comfortable doing it, but radiation rooms are usually very big and theyre bright and the doors, its kind of like the mouse outside is this big and when its inside your house its that big, so the doors, to me, looked that big ƒ Years later when I was with Komen, they gave us a tour of Bethesda Womens Health Center, there was a whole group of us there and they took us into the ra-diation room and everybodys up at the table and Im up against the wall ƒ And thats when it hit me, I couldnt step into the room because I remember how terri-fied I was waiting for that door to open. Ms. Young: Going to my chemo, I would say, Give me the red poison thats healing me.Ž And I would envision Pac-Man ƒ Ms. Golub: Thats what I did! PacMan! Chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp ƒ Ms. Young: Yep, Pac-Man, eat it up, eat it up, eat it up. FW: Where do you stand on the debate over screening? Do you feel mammography leads to over-diagnosis and unnecessary treatments? Do you feel that mammograms have led to more survivorsŽ or do you feel mammograms save lives? Ms. Young: Well, we both found our own cancers. I had a mammogram in March. They missed it. I found it in May. And I inquired about that ƒ I would like to see some studies on thermography ƒ It allegedly shows more than a mam-mogram ƒ I had one thermography, and of course its not covered by insurance ƒ Its an alternative ƒ And I think we need to explore anything thats noninvasive and healthier for us. Ms. Golub: Its thermal imaging. If you watch NCIS or any of those pro-grams, when theyre out there looking for people in the woods with the heli-copter and they have the heat-sensing thing and it glows whatever color it glows, they know theres people running through the woods there, so think of it as looking for the bad people running through your boobs. Ms. Young: I had a calcification in my other breast. They said, Well, we can watch that.Ž And I was like, No, were not. Were not watching anything. Take it out of me.Ž Im one of those, Its in there. Its not supposed to be there. Get it out.Ž ƒ They took out that calcification and put a titanium chip in there so they know where it was ƒ Im in charge of my body and I get very fired up, passionate, loud about who takes care of my body and what I can do to it or what I chose to do to it. Its my body. FW: How do you feel about the National Institutes of Health and a federally funded task force declining to recom-mend universal screenings to women in their 40s, but maintaining that mammograms should be started at age 50 and conducted every two years? Do you feel mammograms at a young age need to be questioned or sanctioned? Ms. Golub: Its a very personal decision. I do think people should get a base-line at 40. I think the government has no right to tell me what to do with my body. Ms. Young : Ditto. Ms. Golub: And you know what? If it makes people vigilant about their bodies, then why not? Why do you go to the dentist every year? You might not have cavities ƒ so why go to the dentist every year? Because you want to take care of your teeth. Well, its the same thing with the rest of your body ƒ Susan Love, she didnt use the word incidental, but inferred that people finding breast cancer through mammograms didnt work ƒ I was really angry with Susan Love because she was a breast surgeon, well-renown, she wrote a fabulous book on breast cancer, but shes into the economics. Now, maybe in terms of the economics of breast cancer care and for insurance purposes, when they look at it, that mammograms dont pay off in terms of saving lives, and there is something to be said for what they find and call stage zero breast cancer, which is something thats really debatable. Most doctors will call it stage zero but say that it is not breast cancer now, it is something that could be breast cancer. Its one of those things you watch, but the likelihood is that its not, so have we over-defined breast cancer? Maybe. Ms. Young: I think anytime you learn more about the diseases that are preva-lent within our society, you take action to correct them or to prevent them. Pre-vention is what we need, more so than anything else. I find that theres a debate on prevention because you spend $2,000 to prevent as opposed to spending $20,000 to make an alleged cure. I would like to see more prevention, so if that incorporates mammogram, but I think we still need to spread out and look at other options because as Betsys saying, economically, it makes money. Cancer makes money. Why dont we have cures abounding? Treatments? I dont have the answers, but I have the questions ƒ Why dont we do more research? Why dont we explore alternative methods? Ms. Golub: If you are in your 30s, you are the recipient of at least three generations of an altered food supply, so the food supply that your mother, your grandmother, maybe even your great grandmother had was altered by chemicals and hormones and preserva-tives, all of the things that increase the shelf life of food but nobody ever looked at what it did to the person ingesting the food, so now theres this movement back to sustainable agriculture, farm-to-table, hormone-free, pesticide-free, is that go-ing to make a difference? Maybe, but its going to take generations because even the infant whos starting out life now still has the residuals of all the things that the previous generations had. Ms. Young: We have to love the land, too. Its all connected, I believe. FW: When someone like Angelina Jolie has a mastectomy do you feel like she glamorizes it? Ms. Young: Shes helping to make other people aware. Ms. Golub: Do you remember when Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy? And then there was this huge controversy be-cause doctors at that point were saying statistically there was no difference be-tween a lumpectomy and a mastectomy and the question that people were pos-ing was did she do a good thing or bad thing for women? At the end, I realized she did a good thing because she went to a portico or a porch or something from the White House and she talked to reporters and she showed that yes, you do survive breast cancer surgery. FW: What has not been said? What would you like to see in print? Ms. Young: My thing is awareness. I think young women, older women too, but young women because their life is in front of them, be aware of your body, love your body, take care of your body. I think thats been said but I dont know if its been said enough. FW: How do you feel about the politics of Komen? Ms. Golub: To give Nancy Brinker credit, she was the first person to discuss breast cancer, but she did more than just bring awareness to breast cancer. When I was little and even when I was a teenager, if someone had cancer, drapes were drawn and people referred to it as the big CŽ and they whispered. They would whisper around children. They didnt want chil-dren to even talk about it. She brought awareness to not only breast cancer but to cancer in general and she took it and made it a headline ƒ But Nancy Brinker let her own political agenda interfere. The incident with Planned Parenthood was not the only incident that put Komen in a bad light. And she did not act swiftly or surgically enough. She needed to extricate herself from Komen more quickly than she did. She announced that she intended to step down, but it took her many, many months to do so. And between the times she said she intended to step down and when she actually stepped down, she increased her annual salary to $684,717 a year. Now Ive been doing a little figuring. This came from Charity Navigator. That $684,000-plus is based on a total revenue of $342.5 million. OK, the CEO of the American Cancer Society has an annual salary of $628,000, less than Nancys and that is based on a total revenue of $934 million. Theres a significant percentage difference. Do I think what Nancy did to raise the level of awareness about cancer is phenomenal? Theres no question in my mind. But I think that it is obscene that she got an increase and that the board ap-proved it given the fact that revenues for races around the country and giving was down significantly. FW: How do you live without the fear of recurrence? How do you live without cancer in the forefront of your mind? Ms. Young: Theyve been selling fear in this country for a long time ƒ You know, I went to the Canyon Ranch in Arizona and there was a labyrinth there and I walked it. And when I got there, there was a stone that someone had put there that said food and another one that said light or something like that, so I said OK. I came back out, dont ask me why I had a pen with me, but I came all the way out and I found a rock and I took in back in and I wrote fear and I left it there, so when I become afraid, I go, Huh! I planted my fear in Arizona at the labyrinth of the Canyon Ranch.Ž Thats where it is. And I remind myself of that. Ms. Golub: I think vodka kills my cancer cells.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Smelling Like a RoseThe charitable sector is large and growing in this country. GuideStar, an agency sometimes characterized as a charity watchdog, calculates there are more than 1.8 million registered non-profits in the U.S. These organizations generate total revenue of more than $1.9 trillion annually; and they employ the nations third largest workforce, says a recent study. Given the size of the industry, the incentive is strong to self-regulate and strengthen nonprofit management and performance. Being on the offense helps mitigate against the threat of fraud and abuse by rogue charities. All nonprofits are subject to a reputational hit when charities go off the reservation with illegal or ill-considered behaviors or decisions. The potential damage done scares off donors and destroys the publics trust „ and chari-ties are in the trust business. State and federal laws provide a regulatory framework for oversight, but with this many IRS-registered charities, it is inevitable that good intentions go awry or deliberate malfeasance creeps in. Sector-wide standards of policy and practice provide meaningful guidance to nonprofits to give support and keep them on the straight and narrow. Organi-zational principles and policies, adopted voluntarily, ensure consistency among and across peer institutions, instructing boards and staff alike, of rules of the road widely accepted by ones peers for doing charitable business. Most nonprofits thus take very seriously the need to operate with transpar-ency and accountability because it is the right thing to do and because they know the public is watching. A number of resources provide informational tools to third parties as a means of enforcement, and help shed light on, and provide public disclosure of data describing in great detail how and with what effect charities manage their finances and business activities. Searchable databases of registered non-profits enable donors, clients and an interested public to assess nonprofit performance and make informed deci-sions about giving to specific charities. GuideStar is one of the larger agencies providing this service. It publishes and makes accessible an extensive on-line database profiling tens of thousands of charities, including mission, legiti-macy, impact, reputation, finances, pro-grams, transparency, governance, and so much more.Ž With this kind of gunpowder in play, charities have no wish to ignite con-troversy. They pay close attention to the stories their information communi-cates to the public and are increasingly wedded to transparency (or should be) regarding their governance, finances, operations and programs. The sectors overall self-interest in an attitude of openness is to assure charities pass the fabled sniff testŽ by stakeholders, and exit smelling like a rose.The high standard of accountability and transparency we expect of charities requires increased investment in the pro-fessionalism of nonprofit staff and an orga-nizations management and leadership. Nonprofits that are skillfully managed by a competent staff who operate well-designed programs and receive the knowl-edgeable oversight of an informed, atten-tive board, do not just happen.Ž Investing in a charitys governance, staffing, business and operational skills, financial expertise and program leadership strengthens and sustains their legitimacy and credibility in serving local communities. For these reasons, capacity-building is understand-ably an important priority. Yet resources are often limited that are devoted to this purpose. Many charities have a small staff and modest annual budget. In Palm Beach County, to overcome these challenges, foundations and non-profits have joined forces to create solu-tions that address commonly shared needs for building organizational capac-ity. These efforts also help charities be more effective as advocates for the com-munities they serve. This partnership approach to capacity-building in the county strengthens nonprofits individually and the non-profit network overall through the val-ue-added of collaborative efforts. Several current partnerships come to mind: The No Margin, No Mission Initiative, launched earlier this year, advances an earned income training and planning program for area Palm Beach County nonprofits. The Chamber of Nonprofit Health and Human Service Agencies, founded in 2008, brings its membership together to meet, share common ground, and collaborate with a unified voice. The Spirit of Giving is a county-wide network formed in 2007, of 60-plus Palm Beach County nonprofits whose membership shares resources, knowledge, time, talent and treasure, with a focus on children and families in South County. Allegany Franciscan Ministries and the Quantum Foundation jointly funded the No Margin, No Mission Initiative and the Chamber of Nonprofit Health and Human Service Agencies in Palm Beach County. South County residents Dick and Barbara Schmidt and the Schmidt Family Foundation were cata-lysts and donors in support of the for-mation of the Spirit of Giving, founded in 2007.

Answer: Ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modifications. Today, both women and men attach jewelry to their ears, most commonly to the earlobe. Unfortunately, this practice can frequently cause complications. Earlobe tears and keloids are issues I see most commonly. Keloids are caused by scar tissue accumulation. This frequently occurs along the top curvature of the cartilage. Removal of the scar tissue can be done under local anesthesia to restore the natural contour at the edge of the ear. The main risk is recurrence. The earlobe is made of skin and fat and is sensitive to heavy earrings or traumatic pulling. This can elongate an ear piercing hole or tear through the edge of the earlobe causing the lobe to split. Repairs are done under local anesthesia in our procedure suite. Various techniques are used depending on the type of tear and fine sutures are placed for a week until the skin heals. Re-piercing is avoided for at least 8 weeks. The scar heals well in this area and again, the goal is to recreate a smooth contour at the edge of the repair. If you are experiencing complications from an ear piercing and want to see if one of these repairs are right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

Originally from New York City, Dr. Lipan completed undergraduate work at Cornell University, went on to graduate in the top quartile of his class with a distinction in research at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and then trained with well-respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons at the University of Miami. Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: I need dental implants, but my dentist said I need sinus-lift surgery first. Is this always needed? Answer: Molar teeth are often lost due to decay, infection or failed root canals. Once one or more molars are lost, patients find it difficult to chew their food properly. When upper back teeth are lost, bone is lost too. Simultaneously, the maxillary sinuses often dip down leaving inadequate bone for dental implant placement. With the modern technology used today, 3-D digital CT scans reveal if you actually need sinus lift surgery. The scan will accurately show the implant dentist how much bone is present while precisely revealing the proximity of the maxillary sinuses. Sinus lift surgery consists of elevating the floor of the sinus and adding bone-graft material through a small opening made where the tooth used to be or from the side via a small access under the gum. Sinus lift surgery dramatically increases bone volume to support dental implants and is one the most successful forms of bone grafting. Dental implants can replace one or multiple missing back teeth, allowing patients to chew their food properly as if they had their natural teeth. Jay L.

Otherwise called the oral parity bill, it was approved by state legislators in May with relative ease, then signed into law, even though the insurance industry opposed it. Florida insurers arent in favor of the rule, but they plan to comply with it, said Jim Bracher, execu-tive vice presi-dent of the Flori-da Association of Health Plans. At this point its the law of the state so the companies will do it,Ž he said. Thats just the way it is.Ž The campaign for a parity bill began in 2011, led by Ms. Kristoff, then state chairperson of the public policy col-laborative for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Jeri Francoeur, current president and public policy chair for Komens Central Florida affiliate, took over that posi-tion after Ms. Kristoff became sick. She helped develop a coalition of doctors, pharmaceutical company lobbyists, leg-islators and others that pushed the leg-islation through in 2013. Senate Majority Leader Liz-beth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, sponsored the bill in the senate. She helped usher it into existence with emotional testimony about her mother, who succumbed to cancer. For doctors, patients and family members, the new measure creating econom-ic parity between two different delivery methods of cancer treatment was a major victory, if long overdue. This bill patches what has been for a long time a real flaw in the system,Ž said Naples oncologist Dr. Joel Gross-man, with Florida Cancer Specialists, which counts itself as the largest inde-pendent oncology/hematology practice in the United States. There are a lot of flaws in the system and I would say this is a low-hanging fruit kind of flaw. Its surprising this hasnt been fixed before this.Ž And it still hasnt been fixed „ at least not until the new rule goes into effect next summer. Until then, when he determines an oral medication is the right course of treatment, the patient as well as his staff may have to begin a new battle full of headaches and delays „ finding a way to pay for it. Until the law takes effect, health insurance companies will only cover the pills under the pharmaceutical part of their plans and not under office visits. Ironically, those with no insurance or low income have found more help pay-ing for the drugs. One route that some patients and family members have taken was to quit their jobs and take lower paying ones so they would qualify for low-income assistance from various sources. Others simply opted for less effective but less expen-sive treatments, Dr. Grossman said. Its a real kick in the teeth,Ž he said. You write the prescription, talk to them, go through the side effects, make sure it doesnt conflict with their other treatments and then they come back and say, OK, my co-pay is $5,000.Ž The haggling over co-pays led to perverse economic choices for patients struggling with a deadly illness. Its tragic when someone says they wont go on treatment because they cant get it paid,Ž Dr. Grossman said. But I have seen people do poorly because of that.Ž Cancer drugs in pill form generally come with far fewer harsh side effects, he said „ such as nausea, vomiting, hair loss and infections from IV drips „ than traditional clinical chemo. The pills are designed to more precisely tar-get specific cancer cells, while minimiz-ing trips away from home. The drugs can also be mail ordered. The people that are far away from a facility dont have to worry about it,Ž Ms. Kristoff said. Meanwhile, drug manufacturers are producing an increasing array of cancer pills that oncologists prescribe more than ever. Oral drugs to treat cancer have been increasing and increasing,Ž said Dr. Grossman. Really, this is across the board in multiple different kinds of cancers,Ž including leukemia and breast cancer. Iressa is an oral drug used to treat a common form of lung cancer, for instance. Tykerb, which Ms. Kristoff took, is used to treat breast cancer. Floridas parity bill came on the heels of 22 other states and the District of Colombia, which have all passed similar bills since 2008, as use of oral cancer medications became more widespread. Q ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYChemotherapy pills could cost more than $1,000 a month. The price should decrease dramati-cally once new legislation takes effect.

Couples who share chores, share a happier relationshipThe Sunday football game was well underway. Beth could hear groans coming from the family room. Matts team must have made a boneheaded m ove, because Matt was disgusted. Beth could not care less. She was so exhausted, she couldnt see straight. The pile of dishes in the sink loomed, and there were two loads of laundry to sort and iron. And, she hadnt checked yet to see if the children needed help with homework, or if they were prepared for the coming week. So later that night, when Matt attempted to nuzzle her neck invitingly, she gave him the cold shoulder. How typical! He never showed any interest in her unless he wanted something. Well, now, SHE wasnt interested. Where was HE when she needed help in the kitchen? How come HE never paid attention to the childrens assignments? Theres no question, we all need down time. However, many working parents argue that their workday never ends „ that theres NEVER any time to relax. They contend they may physically leave the workplace, but its only to assume the stressful demands of domestic responsibilities. And, its not just the physical chores of housework and carpooling were talking about. Many parents complain they carry the emotional burden of planning, anticipating and organizing everyones schedules. They may believe that its always up to them to have their radars up, while their partners are oblivious, and nonplussed. Studies are showing that many of todays young couples have more liberated views about gender roles and are making great strides to challenge stereotypes in their rela-tionships. So, we must be careful not to gener-alize when speaking about the sexes. However, when folks are convinced theyre shouldering the lions share of domestic demands, without the participation of their spouse, resentment brews. They may not feel comfortable to openly express how theyre feeling, so they may hold back. But over time, left unchecked, there can be a breaking point. Particularly distressing is when a petty, unattractive pattern of behavior emerges „whereby one nags in frustration, and the other begins to defensively tune the other out, backing off in disgust. As the two become more deeply entrenched in this demoralizing cycle, it doesnt take much to trigger the upset. Sadly, the gripes may actually be valid, but both parties feel victimized. They may be too upset to actually listen to the others position. In this climate, theres rarely resolution. Inti-macy has been stifled, and both parties feel woefully misunderstood. The end may under-standably result in marital estrangement. A much-touted study by British researcher Wendy Sigle-Rushton entitled Mens Unpaid Work and Divorce: Reassessing Specializa-tion and TradeŽ contends that divorce rates are lower in families where husbands help more with housework, shopping and child-care. It belies a more traditional theory that marriages are most stable when men focus on paid work and women are responsible for housework. It further reports that the fathers contribution to housework and childcare can stabilize the marriage, regardless of the moth-ers employment status. The message we can glean from this study is huge. Couples who collaborate to have a respectful understanding of each others needs and expectations may be able to balance the load more effectively. Its helpful when couples openly acknowledge their differences. We may have very different standards about cleanliness, timeliness, and gender role belief systems. We may have been shaped by our upbringing and may have been influenced by our parents behavior, or peer group experi-ences. Todays economic climate may dictate how both parties need to contribute to the household, adding additional pressures. And, of course, this scenario is not just an issue with young families. Many retirees share the same gripes. Retirement may require a re-evaluation of expectations as we negotiate the newfound time with each other. Its important that the parties speak openly, and specifically, and to express a willingness to compromise. When possible, it helps when there is a clear delineation of tasks, (of course, with flexibility when circumstances get in the way.) Sometimes, in an effort to head off conflict, the parties may become non-specific or vague. While this may avoid an initial upset, its likely there will be a blow up at some point, with accusations that there was a delib-erate shirking of responsibilities. Once we begin looking at our partner through a negative filter, well find ourselves regularly jumping to dire conclusions. We should refrain from assuming the worst, and attributing suspect motivations. While its tempting to lecture or accuse our partner of being lazy or inconsiderate, we dont win. We may feel justified in our rants, but weve lost any collaborative edge. We also need to remember that our partner may not do things the way wed like. If we criticize when theyre actually making hon-est efforts, we cant expect them to have any gusto to try again. Of course, smart individuals take the time to learn what matters to their partner. They go out of their way to demonstrate theyll go the extra mile to lighten their loved ones load. There are studies that contend that one of the biggest turn-ons is when a partner tackles household drudgery, not only without being asked, but with a smile on the face. Were obviously not nave enough to believe this will be sufficient to solve the complicated chal-lenges couples face in their intimate lives. But lets not under-estimate the positive allure of the partner who rolls up his sleeves to tackle lifes challenges side by side.

LOLA CHI Q 1, "1 / "r, <"U<"r 9 nrn* 7"r*r / n,<9nU 3D Mammography: Revolutionizing Breast Imaging at Jupiter Medical Center SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYJupiter Medical Center is dedicated to finding breast cancer early, offer-ing women in Palm Beach and Mar-tin counties access to leading edge technology and innovation in the fight against breast cancer. We all know that the earlier breast cancer is detected, the better the chance of survival. Accredited by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imag-ing Center of Excellence, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at Jupiter Medical Center was the first facility in Palm Beach and Martin counties to offer innovative new technology … 3D mammography (tomosynthesis). 3D mammography is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected, provid-ing increased diagnostic accuracy and finding breast cancer at an earlier stage … which means more lives can be saved. Exams are performed on a digital mam-mography unit that takes multiple low-dose 3D images of a compressed breast from different angles. Because of the 3D imaging capability, radiologists are now able to view breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time. This technology is extremely useful for all women, especially those who have dense breast tissue. On a tradition-al digital mammogram, dense breast tissue appears white and sometimes can hide masses, such as cancer. 3D mammography overcomes this obstacle and has been proven to provide an eight percent increase in breast cancer detection with a 25 percent decrease in callback rates to find those cancers. Women who have dense breasts, those who are having their first baseline mammogram, or women with a greater than 15 percent calculated life-time risk of breast cancer are good candidates. In addition to 3D mammography, the Breast Center offers ultrasound with elastography, positron emission mammogra-phy (PEM), minimally invasive biopsies, including an upright stereotactic unit, wide-bore breast MRI and bone density tests. The Center also offers clinical breast exams and breast cancer risk assessments. Cancer genetics screen-ing and testing is available to women determined to be at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. The Breast Center team includes several breast health specialists and a patient navigation team providing education and support, as well as a dedicated diagnostic radiologist who reads more than 10,000 mammograms each year. Women in our community can rest assured knowing that the latest breast cancer diagnostic and treatment tech-nology is available through Jupiter Medical Centers Comprehensive Breast Care program, which was the first program in Palm Beach Coun-ty to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. The program encompasses the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Cen-ter for diagnosis, and the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program for treatment. In addition to the Jupiter location, Jupiter Medical Centers Niedland Breast Screening Center is open at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens. The Niedland Breast Screening Cen-ter is located at 11310 Legacy Place, Suite 110, next to Miami Childrens Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Cen-ter. The Center is equipped with 3D mammography, bone densitometry, advanced body composition and also offers blood draws in one convenient location, with plenty of parking and easy access. For more information about 3D mammography, visit To schedule an appointment, call 263-4414. Jupiter Medical Center is the recipient of the HealthGrades Americas 50 Best Award’ for three years in a row (2011-2013) and the Distinguished Hos-pital Award Clinical Excellence’ for nine years in a row (2005-2013).

A24 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYTreatment needs to be individualized BY ALEX S. MIRAKIAN, M.D.South Florida Radiation OncoloyBoard-Certi“ ed Radiation Oncologist Diplomate American Board of Radiology Breast cancer is often publicized when a celebrity is diag-nosed and undergoes a particular treatment, which can sometimes influence the public as to how they should proceed with their own treatment. This can often lead to con-fusion and worst of all inappropriate treatment. It is very important to remem-ber, therefore, that treatment for any can-cer diagnosis be individualized as much as possible to achieve the greatest chance of cure with the least side effects.This is best accomplished by acquiring a team of oncologists to advise you on your cancer and how best to treat it. Breast cancer will be diagnosed in approximately 230,000 women in the U.S. in 2013 with 40,000 women dying from the disease. Only lung cancer has a higher death rate. It is a very important health issue in our community and there is much misinformation that circulates about the disease and its treatments. Below are some interesting facts about Breast Cancer that may not be well known. Q 95 percent of breast lumps discovered by patients turn out to be benign. Q A breast lump that turns out to be cancerous is not usually painful. Q A bleeding nipple is rarely due to cancer. Q On average, about 1 in 8 women will eventually be diagnosed with breast cancer. Q The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer and the death rate from it are both decreasing, and thought largely due to the use of screening mam-mography, but precancerous tumors are increasing in number. Q Breast cancer also affects men.Q Risk factors associated with developing breast cancer include being female (only 1 percent of breast cancers occur in men); increasing age … 95 percent of women diagnosed are older than 40 with a slight decrease in the incidence when over the age of 80; early menstruation, late menopause, few or no pregnancies, late first pregnancy, failure to breast feed, and hormone replacement therapy all increase the risk; known genetic mutation/syn-dromes; family history or personal his-tory of prior breast cancer; prior abnormal breast biopsies; and lifestyle factors like a high alcohol intake, little exercise and pos-sibly smoking also increase risk.Q Treatment is usually decided upon by a team of oncologists including a surgeon, radiation oncologist, a medical oncologist and often a reconstructive surgeon. Q Breast conservation is almost always recommended where possible and usually involves a lumpectomy, lymph node biopsy, whole or partial breast radiation, and possibly chemo-therapy, and endocrine therapy (pills). Reconstruction is usually reserved fol-lowing mastectomy if performed. Q While whole breast radiation typically takes six weeks to deliver, acceler-ated partial breast radiation is a newer technique allowing completion in only 5 days following lumpectomy with less side effects. Clearly, it is very important to communicate effectively with ones prima-ry care physician to discuss screen-ing guidelines and risk assessment for breast cancer so that an individualized approach can be developed and fol-lowed. Most cancers can be effectively treated when picked up in their early stages, so if diagnosed, you should ensure that the advice you obtain for treatment is based on a combined decision from all of your treating oncologists rather than on personalized accounts or popular magazines and TV shows. Each patient is unique and deserves to be treated in that manner by trusted, informed and expert caregivers. Contact SFRO for more information, at 877-930-7376.

Departure, hiring, promotions announced at Roger Dean BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 A26 Lisa Fegley, Roger Dean Stadium assistant general manager, general man-ager of the Palm Beach Cardinals and director of group ticket sales for the past eight seasons, is leaving the orga-nization, Roger Dean announced. Her numerous leadership positions have been filled by internal promotions. Alex Inman will continue in his current position of event services manager, along with filling the key roles of assis-tant general manager and general man-ager of the Palm Beach Cardinals. Mr. Inman began his career at Roger Dean Stadium in 2009. Ms. Fegleys responsi-bilities as director of group ticket sales will go to Jason Cantone. Mr. Cantone is the current ticket office manager and will be completing his sixth season at the ballpark. Ryan Moore has been hired as the other assistant gen-eral manager and the general manager of the Jupiter Hammer-heads. Mr. Moore will also be the direc-tor of corporate part-nerships. Mr. Moore has spent the last four years working for the Gwinnett Braves, the AAA-affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, as the director of ticket sales. Several other internal promotions have been made in the front office. Ralph Perrone, of West Palm Beach, has been promoted to work under Mr. Moore as the corporate partnership account manager. Mr. Perrone will work his third season in 2014. After comple-tion of his 2013 event services internship, Drew Moomey has been named assis-tant ticket office manager. Addition-ally, the grounds crew has promoted Cory Wilder to the assistant director of grounds. Wilder, from Nebraska, has just finished his fourth season on the grounds crew. It was not announced what Ms. Fegley, an eight-year employee, planned to do next. Due to the promotions listed ab ove, two positions are now available for the 2014 season: Ticket office manager and a second corporate partnership account manager position. The 2014 internships are also available. More information on these specific positions and how to apply can be found at or by calling 755-1818. Opened in 1998, the $28 million Roger Dean complex/stadium is specially designed to house two Major League and two Minor League baseball teams. The stadium is home to the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals for Spring Training. The Florida State Leagues Jupiter Hammerheads (Single-A Affiliate of the Miami Marlins) and Palm Beach Cardinals (Single-A Affili-ate of the St. Louis Cardinals) make their home at Roger Dean Stadium from April through Labor Day. This year-round facility can accommodate the smallest birthday party to the largest corporate outing. Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFEGLEY INMAN Income inequality is a domestic and international issueThe issue of income inequality polarizes. It seems to divide groups between those who believe that income inequal-ity in the U.S. is unfairŽ and those who believe that the inequality reflects just rewards for intense labor, extensive sacri-fice, commitment to higher levels of edu-cation, high degree of capital risk taking, etc. There is possibly truth to both sides of the aisle. This debates importance was recently elevated by the Securities and Exchange Commission in that the SEC has proposed a requirement that pub-licly traded companies annually report the gap in pay between chief executives and rank-and-file employees (which) has been growing steadilyƒ Now regu-lators (the SEC) want companies to tell investors just how wide it is.Ž The proposal comes as part of the rollout of the Dodd-Frank legislation. (DealBook, The SEC proposes greater disclosure on pay for CEOs,Ž Sept. 18, 2013.) The proposed rule would require public companies to report the ratio of top executive compensation to the median compensation of their employ-ees. Median pay is the point at which half the employees earn more and half earn lessŽ (DealBook). The SECs five member commissioners were split on the proposal with three voting for the proposal and two voting against the proposal. The public now has a 60-day comment period before the SEC brings the matter to a final vote. Some facts about the current income inequality situation ƒ. Economic inequality is often defined in multiple ways, as inequal-ity of: earned income (earned in the private sector), total income (earned and unearned income) and/or assets owned. Many of the U.S. foundations and entities reporting on this topic focus on wages or unearned. The data supporting the U.S. studies can be more easily garnered from public company reports that list executive compensation and compensation for all employees. But reports on earned income of executives fail to capture the value of executive perks, option programs and other mechanisms ƒwhich often dwarf executive wages. Wage inequality in the U.S. has been increasing in the past decade. Compare the present to the 1960s/1970s when the U.S. really had a meaningful middle class. Q Executive pay is now more than 277 times an average workers pay, compared with just 20 times in 1965,Ž according to the Economic Policy Institute (Deal-Book).Q Between 1979 and 2007, wages for the top 1 percent rose almost 10 times as fast as those for the bottom 90 per-cent: 156.2 percent versus 16.7 percent,Ž (State of Working America, 12th edi-tion,Ž Economic P olicy Instit ute).Q These disparities are especially pronounced in the explosion of CEO pay, which in the late 1970s was about 30 times that of a typical worker. Today, it is more than 200 times that of a typical worker. From 1978 to 2011, CEO com-pensation grew more than 725 percent. Private-sector worker compensation grew only 5.7 percent.Ž (State of Work-ing AmericaŽ)The problem of income disparity is international in scope as this trend char-acterizes most of the developing world. Most international statistics do not cover earned income only in that such data is not readily available; rather, total income is measured, which includes earned income and non-earned income (i.e., unearned income is mostly investment income). Some think the disparity problem is worst in the U.S. The United States has a higher degree of income inequal-ity than almost any other developed countryƒ. In fact, the most recent data compiled by the Organization for Eco-nomic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that Chile, Mexico and Turkey are the only OECD member countries that rank higher than the U.S. in terms of inequality. And its only get-ting worse.Ž (The Global Post, the Ford Foundation)With the problem having some definition, the question is whether anything can or should be done to mitigate or resolve the problem. The U.S., in embrac-ing capitalism, has generally preferred that market forces adjust inequalities and that the U.S. government stay out of the affairs of business, especially compensa-tion issues. The SECs proposed rule, if enacted, will certainly raise employ-ee, shareholder and board of directors awareness of the issue. Much of todays corporate gains come from globalization, technologys pro-ductivity gains, and the heightened role of risk capital. But for many corpora-tions, their existence was created on the backs of yesteryears laborers. Possibly the SECs idea is a very good one. Some reporting companies will be quite proud of their legacy and others should be embarrassed by their execu-tives grotesque greed, all at the expense of employees and shareholders.Consider writing to the SEC in support or objection to their proposed rule.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 BUSINESS A27 Before plastic, iron toys tickled imaginations BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELOld toys are very different from those made today. Toymakers of long ago did not try to encourage creativity. A toy was made to resemble a known part of life „ a house, car or pet „ or perhaps a fantasy „ a rocketship or robot. Or they were puzzles meant to teach the alphabet or arithmetic, or character dolls from stories that told of good behavior or gave lessons from the Bible. In the late 19th century, a group of cast-iron bell-ringer toys became popular. These were pull toys with a platform and four wheels. The figures on the platform moved when the toys wheels turned. The Trick Elephant Bell Ringer,Ž with its name in raised letters on the side, was made by the Gong Bell Manufacturing Co. of East Hampton, Conn. When the toy was pulled, the wheels moved and the elephant turned and hit the bell. The elephant stands on a pierced and painted platform, suggesting that he is a circus performer. The painted iron toy, about 5 inches high and 8 inches long, sold for $1,230 at a Skinner auction in Boston.Q: My wife bought what our family refers to as our dog chairŽ at a garage sale for $9. It was in a great deal of disrepair and we had it professionally redone. Its made of walnut, upholstered in leather, and has carved dogs heads at the end of each arm. The dogs faces and collars are slightly dif-ferent from one another. We were told that one is a female and the other male. Im not sure if that makes sense. What can you tell me about this chair?A: Chairs with arms that end in animal heads were popular in Victorian times and later. Dog heads are the ones most often found. Your chair is unusual because the heads are slightly different, but whether or not they represent a male and female dog is something only the maker would know. Its not possible to give an accurate value for your chair since the maker and age are unknown, but you can be sure that your wife got a good value for $9 and an interesting con-versation piece after it was refurbished. Value: about $200. Q: I have a perfect set of dishes, marked Monarch China, Made in Occupied Japan, Montana Rose.Ž The pieces are decorated with roses and trimmed in gold. There are 96 pieces in the set, which includes 12 place settings and various serving pieces. Can you tell me something about the dishes and how much theyre worth?A: Your dishes were made between 1947 and 1952, w hen Allied forces occupied Japan after World War II. They were made specifically for export. Sets of Monarch Chinas Montana RoseŽ pattern dishes have sold recently for $120 to $250.Q: My aunt gave me a silver tea set that includes a coffeepot, teapot, sugar, creamer and tray. The coffeepot has a mark on the bottom that says 1883Ž with a crown in the middle of the num-ber. It also says F.B. Rogers Silver Co.Ž I know its old, but Id like to know if its considered an antique, if its real silver and if it has any value. A: F.B. Rogers Silver Co. was founded in Shelburne Falls, Mass., in 1883. It moved to Taunton, Mass., in 1886 and became a division of National Silver in 1955. The mark on your coffeepot was used for several years after 1886. F.B. Rogers made silver-plated tea sets in different styles and sizes. The largest sets include a waste bowl with a lid and a coffee urn. The company also made silver-plated flatware and sterling-silver flatware. The value for your tea set depends on its condition, style and the total number of pieces in the set. A five-piece set that included a waste bowl sold for $175 earlier this year. Q: My grandfather gave me a beautiful little cup about 50 years ago, when I was a little girl. I dont remember ever hearing any history about it. Its made of some type of metal and stands about 8 inches high. Its embossed with birds and cattails, and is on a pedestal base thats engraved Third Swiss Festival N.Y., July 18th, 1875.Ž It is marked Mer-iden Company.Ž Can you tell me any-thing about this curiosity? A: The Third Swiss Festival was held at Jones Woods, a picnic grounds and resort in Manhattan, in 1875. The event included competitions in bowl-ing, equestrian movements, gymnastics, marksmanship, wrestling, singing and dramatic presentations. A silver cup was awarded as first and second prizes in the singing competition. Meriden was a silver-plate manufacturer in Meriden, Conn. The silver plating may have worn off your cup, leaving the base metal exposed, or it may be a metal replica sold as a souvenir of the event. Tip: Watercolors and sketches should be kept out of sunlight. Hang framed works on a wall that is shaded. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

A34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Plaza Theatre’s “You Made Me Love You” will enchant senior patrons BY BILL HIRSCHMAN Before the lights went down at The Plaza Theatre on Sept. 18, the 82-year-old Brooklynite was telling his seatmate in the audience how the world was going to hell in a handbasket. He waxed about his youth when you could get into a fight without guns going off and mari-juana was only used by jazz musicians. And while he omitted that it was also a time of racism, sexism and a spirit-crushing Depression, he was receptive and ripe for a soothing reaffirmation of his memories. He got it. The Plaz as cabaret revue You Made Me Love YouŽ „ a celebration of the music made popular by Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor and Fanny Brice „ is comfort-ing soul food for The Greatest Genera-tion, delivered in a creamy concoction poured by a trio of smooth and sincere singers probably born after all three titular icons had died. The audience was hopelessly and happily seduced by the eighth bar of the title song. Throughout the matinee, the stage lights caught beaming faces whose lips mouthed the lyrics. The auditorium became a decidedly irony-free zone with a retro purity encapsulated in nearly 40 songs that barely acknowledged the possibility of gray skies. The closest it veered toward introspection was the mild heartbreak of Im Always Chasing Rainbows,Ž affectingly crooned by John Lariviere. The tux-and-gowned cast „ Lariviere, Jon Zimmerman and Melissa Boher Jacobson „ were blessed with vibrant voices more at home with these richly melodic tunes than in other Plaza shows weve seen them in. Ably back-ing on the baby grand was Mark Gal-sky, playing solid arrangements by Vic Glazer. They gleefully mugged for the audience, raised eyebrows, popped out their eyes like Barney Google, punctu-ated their songs by pumping a cocked arm in a by gollyŽ motion. The fourth wall evaporated. The performers frequently walked right up to the lip of the stage, even across the non-existent footlights to kiss a patrons hand or warble directly into their eyes. The men led two women from the audience to glide across the stage while Jacobson sang The Anni-versary Waltz.Ž Wisely, none of the three attempted to imitate the three legends even though they adopted many of the stan-dard flourishes and licks inextricably linked with each vaudeville/Broadway stars signature numbers. Jacobson poured herself into Brices torchy My Man.Ž But she was just as good impersonating Brices Baby Snooks eye-rolling persona down to the pink and lace babys outfit and over-sized lollypop. The show biz charm of Zimmerman, armed with a permanent Pepsodent smile and twinkle in the eyes, was evident as he wooed the audience into joining in on the refrain of Making Whoopee.Ž He gets points for keeping a straight face as he threw himself unre-servedly into that last verse and chorus of the painfully anachronistic Jolson tune, My Mammy,Ž by nearly crying out the spoken ludicrous lyrics (Its my Mammy Im talkin about, nobody elses! / Mammy, Mammy, Im comin/ Im so sorry that I made you wait! / Look at me, Mammy! Dont you know me? / Im your little baby!Ž) Lariviere has a warm, more down-toearth appeal and hes especially effec-tive with a heartfelt ballad. These revues provide two public services. Back in the day, almost every song had a protracted introduction with a different melody, even a different key that then slid into the songŽ that most people whistle and hum later. But these shows resurrect all those intros rarely done today. So, one, it reveals the unde-niable skill for words and music that over-familiarity has robbed of the main piece. Two, it creates a game you can play with yourself: Guess what well-known standard is coming up after the introductory stanza is played. I mean did you know there was just such an intro before California, Here I Come.Ž Thought not. Boomers have no room to laugh snidely. As that sage theologian S ylvester Stewart said, Different strokes for different folks / So on and so on / And scooby doobie doobie / Ooooh, sha-sha.Ž Proof? Later in the season, Plaza is doing a cabaret of Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor music. Really. So Im anxiously waiting another decade for the nostalgic jukebox musical of the Justin Timberlake/ Miley Cyrus/Bruno Mars oeuvre. Bottom line: If you are under 70 or have no personal connection to this music, this is likely something to pass on. But if you are 70 or older, this is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. What: You Made Me Love YouŽ When: Through Sept. 29 Where: The Plaza Theatre, 262 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan. Times: 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, and 2 p.m. Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.

A42 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Can this oper a be saved?When it was founded in 1943, the New York City Opera was called “the people’s opera” because of its mission to make opera available and af for dable to everyone. It is a rare opera company that continually champions American composers and new works. “Anna Nicole” is the company’ s first opera of the 2013-14 season. It might also be the last. The opera company, which left Lincoln Center in 2011 because of financial dif ficulties, has announced an urgent $20 million fundraising campaign on its website and needs to raise $7 million by the end of September. It has started a $1 million campaign on Kickstarter, the online fundraising site. For more information, call (212) 870-5626 or visit ANNAFrom page A33Unfortunately, Mr. Marshall had not updated his will, and his widow spent at least a decade fighting in the courts for her portion of his estate. Struggling with the pain caused by her oversized breast implants, she grew addict-ed to pills and alcohol. She played bit parts in movies and television, finally starring in her own reality TV show on E! Anna Nicole wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe, but instead became tabloid fodder, the punch line of jokes. Her life was such a disaster that a biography about her was titled Train Wreck.Ž She gave birth to a daughter just days before her son died of an overdose. Soon afterward, Anna Nicole died of an overdose of prescription drugs in Hollywood, Fla. She was 39 years old. She did have a tragic life,Ž says soprano Sarah Joy Miller, who portrays Anna Nicole in the American debut. I don t believe (the opera) is laughing at her at all,Ž she adds. Its very much in the spirit of who she was. When you looked at her life, she loved being in the public eye, no matter what her circumstance. (Throughout her life as) a sex kitten, a beauty and then the reality television show, she presents herself as being ridiculous. Its her version of Lucille Ball. I think she laughs at herself. I think she would really enjoy that theres an opera out there about her.ŽVioletta and Anna Nicole Earlier this year, Ms. Miller starred as Violetta in La TraviataŽ at the Palm Beach Opera in West Palm Beach. (Her husband, David Miller, a member of Il Divo, also per-formed in the opera as Alfredo, Violettas love interest.) In 2012, for the PBOs 50th anniversary gala, Ms. Miller sang an aria and the drinking song from La TraviataŽ and was invited to return this past January to perform in a fully staged production. She describes the experience of performing her first Violetta as so wonderful, a dream of an experience, with Renata Scotto directing ƒ I love that company so well.Ž Daniel Biaggo, general director of the PBO, describes her performance as Violetta as sparkling.Ž Ms. Miller, he adds, is one of those people who have such a radiant personality on stage. She draws the focus of the audi-ence to her beautiful, open face that is so expressive ƒ She has this incredible abil-ity to access the top register of her voice, and throw off the coloratura passages with ease.Ž And though Violetta and Anna Nicole might seem to be disparate roles, Mr. Biag-go sees similarities. A lot of the motivating factors are the sameŽ between the 19th century heroine and the 21st century one, he says. There are some fateful decisions that are made at a (pivotal) moment. Theres a great under-lying humanity for both of them, who mean to do the right thing and mean to do well.Ž Mr. Biaggo will fly to New York for the Sept. 28 closing performance of Anna Nicole.ŽBawdy but charming Like the celebrity herself, Anna NicoleŽ the opera is audacious, bawdy, over the top and more than a little trashy. Its also cheeky and irreverent, thanks to the witty librettist Richard Thomas, who co-wrote Jerry Springer: The Opera.Ž The star makes her entrance kneeling on an oversized gold armchair, surrounded by TV reporters. I want to blow you all/I want to blow you all ƒ /A kiss,Ž she sings coquettishly. That really sums her up, and her sense of humor,Ž Ms. Miller says. (She had) a dirty sense of humor, but a lightness about her. There is something charming about it.Ž Mark-Anthony Turnage, who was commissioned by the Royal Opera in London to write Anna Nicole,Ž composed the music to include elements of jazz and show tunes, as well as some burlesque/stripper music, heavy on the horns. As the chorus sings in the beginning: Its a unique story/So you wont be bored/This actually happened/Though some of the details are sketchy/And vary according to whose account you read.Ž They also intro-duce the opera as one big nihilistic tale/an absurdist story of woe.Ž The opera doesnt mock Anna Nicole as much as it portrays her humanity and her difficulties in life as she fights to escape poverty and then struggles to become famous. Its an indictment of our celebrity-obsessed culture and medias desire to record everything, especially the more sor-did moments. Its probably the only opera to contain country line dancing, strippers pole dancing, a woman using a toilet, a breast implant scene and The Larry King Show.Ž Theres an aria celebrating breasts, listing increasingly ridiculous slang terms, and another about Jimmy Choos and the sound they make on a red carpet. (This is the sound of fame,Ž Anna Nicole sings.) But theres also more than one death scene, and body bags. Toward the end, the star sings, Made some bad choices/made some worse choic-es/Then ran out of choices.Ž The breasts When Anna Nicole tries to make money as a lap dancer, potential customers ignore her. The other dancers tell her she needs to get breast implants. They send her to Dr. Yes, who persuades her by saying, Get real, get surgery/Or go back to poverty.Ž She finally acquiesces, but requests, Lets start small.Ž He replies, If you start small, why bother at all?Ž After hemming and hawing, she finally gives in, singing, Oh, whatever. Supersize me.Ž And he does. The bowling ball-sized breasts cause severe back pain and start Anna Nicoles fatal addiction to pills. Ms. Miller wears a pair of prosthetic breasts for the role. Its really interesting to wear them,Ž she says. Theyre quite comfortable. Theyre not heavy.Ž And although they dont affect her singing, she says, they do affect her balance. Its hard to find my grounding,Ž she says, noting that posture and spinal align-ment are key for opera singers. In addition to 6-inch heels and breast prosthetics, Ms. Miller, whos a slim 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wears a body suit in Act II to reflect Anna Nicoles weight gain. Thats harder on my physical body than my voice,Ž she says. Its incredibly physi-cally exhausting.Ž The other night, she twisted her arm, but didnt realize until afterward that shed done so. What opera requires is a certain relaxed strength,Ž she says. You want to have strength in your body but also be relaxed.Ž The opera also demands emotional stamina. Once we get close to the show, I feel dread when we get into Act II,Ž she confesses. Its heavy and difficult, and I have to put myself through that emotional journey every time we do it. But all in all, its a fantastic artistic experience. There are so many extremes of her life I experience so quickly. Its been a learning experience. Exhausting, but enjoy-able as well.Ž More firsts Because Anna Nicole was a native Texan, Ms. Miller had to learn how to sing with a Texas twang. But that wasnt the most dif-ficult thing, she says. Anna NicoleŽ was the first time shes ever sung an opera in English; shes more used to singing in French or Italian. In English, she says, Were more consonant-heavy in the way we express our-selves. It was a completely different world for me.Ž She also celebrated another first; opening night of Anna NicoleŽ was the same day her first solo album, A Glorious Dream,Ž a collection of opera arias, was released. Shell perform at (le) Poisson Rouge in New York Oct. 30, and also at St. Barts Music Festival in January again. And Id love to come back to Florida,Ž she says. I love Florida.Ž Challenges and rewards I feel that people either totally get this opera, or they dont,Ž Ms. Miller says. (Purists and traditionalists tend to fall into the latter camp.) What we are striving to do with this production is humanize Anna Nicole Smith, not make her something she wasnt,Ž she says. She wasnt perfect. This is a person who went through all these struggles, the Anna Nicole we saw on the news (and in) the sensa-tional headlines. Im sure there was a lot behind the scenes that we didnt see.Ž Many great performers have portrayed Violetta in La Traviata,Ž she says. We dont have film of Violetta. It was a story. And so someone can get on stage and be a very thin, bru-nette Violetta, or a blonde, voluptuous Violetta. We dont question that. The interesting thing about portray-ing a character in an opera who was an actual person is to not make it some sort of imitation. Youre trying to find the essence and heart of the character, also knowing that people are going to expect that theyre watching Anna Nicole. Its a different type of challenge than any other kind of opera.Ž She watched everything Anna Nicole did and also watched a lot of Marilyn Monroe, because Anna Nicole idolized her and wanted to be like her. But one incident this summer gave Ms. Miller a revelation about the woman. Dressed as Anna Nicole, she rode on a float in the New York Gay Pride Parade. It was an interesting moment for me,Ž she says. One of the things she repre-sented for people was this feeling of love and acceptance, no matter who or what you are.Ž When people saw Ms. Miller as Anna Nicole, she says, they would light up and wave and blow kisses. There was just this love, adora tion. I think she represented that acceptance. She was longing and wanting that, and so she gave that in a lot of ways. It was a beautiful realization that helped and guided me in finding her.Ž Q a w as e e ra s and 14 $ 20 r ai se sensa a t u a u s t g a yan n o See ‘Anna Nicole’ on DVD“Anna Nicole” had its world premier e at the Royal Opera House in London in September 2011.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A43FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Thrill of the grill requires care in picking right wineSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY jim The Dish: Golden Fried Shrimp The Place: Juno Beach Fish House, 13980 U.S. 1, Juno Beach; 6262636 or The Price: $11.95 The Details: Call us old-fashioned, but sometimes there s nothing finer than a crispy plate of fried shrimp. These nice-size shrimp were rolled in panko then fried to tender perfection. The slaw that accompanied was crisp and creamy, and the fresh fruit, while not particularly inspired, also was fresh and tasty. Also a nice lunch: the Blackened Mahi Sandwich, with firm, fresh dolphin and tangy remoulade. Q „ Scott SimmonsTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Area GreenMarkets set to reopen in OctoberOne of the challenges of grilling is figuring out what wine will work well with the finished product. Whether you are having a big, brawny steak, or more delicate chick-en, seafood or veggies, the wine needs to complement the smoky char flavors imparted to the food by grilling. I find it easier to pair wines with the foods grilled, rather than picking a wine then trying to decide which dish would go best with it. It is harder to adjust the flavors of grilled items so its best to start with those and find a wine that will complement them. When grilling red meat, you need a wine that will stand up to the big flavors without overwhelming them. Cabernet is a classic choice, as the tannic structure works with the smo-kiness of the meat as well as the pro-teins and fat. I recently tasted La Vite Lucente 2009, a super Tuscan pro-duced by Tenuta Luce Della Vite in Italy. This blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese is smooth and balanced with big fruit flavors. A smooth aged chianti riserva, made from sangiovese, would also work. When you smoke food you introduce more flavors in the rub or sauce, as well as a greated amount of smoke. You need a bigger red wine here with some spice and oak to allow the flavors of the meat and the wine to balance. A good choice here is shiraz or zinfandel. William Hardy Shiraz has enough depth of flavor to go well with smoked meats and even heavier barbecue sauces. Barbecue sauce flavors pose the most challenges. Tomato and vinegar flavors are hard to pair with wine, and heavy sauces are even more chal-lenging. With lighter sauces, stick to zinfandel and shiraz. With heavier sauces, skip the wine and stock up on a well-chilled, hearty beer. If you are grilling seafood, chicken or vegetables, choosing a dry ros lets you drink a chilled wine, but has some of the berry flavors and struc-ture similar to a red wine, which goes well with the smoky flavors. One of my favorites is made by Tablas Creek Vineyard, a cooperative project of wine importer Robert Haas and Cha-teau de Beaucastel, the famous Rhone wine producer. White wines are more traditional matches for seafood and chicken. A California sauvignon blanc is well suited here because it will not have the grapefruit notes that other New World wines (think New Zealand here especially) tend to have. Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley is crisp enough to balance with the stronger grill flavors. For those who are confirmed red drinkers, look toward a lighter-bodied pinot noir from Oregon. The Ponzi Pinot Noir is light enough to enjoy chilled but has enough tannins and structure to complement many sea-foods or grilled vegetable dishes. Q The West Palm Beach and the Gardens Gr eenMar kets are set to reopen the first weekend of October. Look for the West Palm Beach GreenMarket to open at 9 a.m. Oct. 5. at Waterfront Park, Clematis Street and Flagler Drive. It will continue Satur-days through May 31.
