Ibis Golf & Country Club has begun a $33 million capital improvement project that will expand and enhance the existing club-house and add a new Ibis Sports Village. West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and District Commissioner Keith James offi-cially broke ground with members of Ibis. In January, members of the club overwhelmingly approved plans for the project. The Ibis Sports Village will consist of a two-story fitness complex, poolside Bistro, full-service spa, and a resort-style aquatic center. Local construction and architectural firms The Weitz Company and Leo A Daly have been retained to build the projects. ÂIÂm so happy to be a part of this; itÂs going to be beautiful,ÂŽ Mayor Muoio said in a statement. ÂYou couldnÂt have a better group of people building this project, and I look forward to the ribbon cutting.ÂŽ In the state-ment, Commissioner James added, ÂThis is a very exciting day, and this is good news for the entire city and residents of Ibis.ÂŽ ÂWeÂre confident the new facilities will create extraordinary amenities for our active membership to enjoy,ÂŽ said Stephen J. LoGiudice, general manager, adding, ÂThe project will create many local jobs within our city.ÂŽ The overall project will involve several phases of construction with the full project scheduled to be completed in late 2015. Ibis Golf & Country Club is an West Palm Beach country club community of 33 neighborhoods and 54 holes of golf on three Nicklaus-family golf courses. Ibis is on the edge of northern West Palm Beach.

En masse, the tough little bunch of field hands with eyes, brains and heart won a Roosevelt Institute ÂFour Free-domsÂŽ award last week in New York City Â„ the less-famous equivalent of a Nobel Prize for do-gooders. Theirs is the 2013 ÂFreedom from WantÂŽ award, but it could have been any one of the others presented, as well. If youÂve ever seen Norman RockwellÂs 1943 paintings of the Âfour free-domsÂŽ defined by FDR just before we entered World War II, youÂll know them instantly: Freedom from Want (Rock-wellÂs Thanksgiving scene); Freedom from Fear; Freedom to Worship; and Freedom to Speak. Suddenly, Coalition members Greg Asbed, his partner and wife, Laura Ger-mino, along with Gerardo Reyes Chavez and Nely Rodriguez, were standing where all of them should be Â„ with the likes of such previous winners as Studs Terkel, the Dalai Lama, Carlos Fuentes, Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela and others. In a two-decade effort, the Coalition has changed the way farm work is conducted and understood in the United States, and especially in Florida. None of those previous Roosevelt award winners were there in the flesh to witness the formal acknowledgement of this extraordinary achieve-ment Â„ some of them no longer operate in the flesh. But four others, people whose names are now famous in the Land of Do-Gooders, were present: Wendell Berry, Sister Simone Campbell, Ameena Mathews, and Paul Krugman, who also holds the Nobel Prize in Economics (2008). TheyÂd all come to receive a 2013 Roosevelt award. Not that this extraordinary moment of glory for the home team made the front page of even a single Florida newspaper. It didnÂt, as far as I could tell, even though Immokalee is only 30 miles as the cormo-rant flies from Naples; 32 miles from Fort Myers; 86 miles from Miami and 88 miles from Palm Beach Â„ all of which sport alert and agile print and electronic media outfits, some of them swollen to consid-erable size and wealth. But hey, Jesus wasnÂt front-page news to the Romans, either. He was just another do-gooder. I watched the ceremony unfold via podcast at St. MichaelÂs Episcopal Church on Madison Avenue with a feeling of pleas-ant confusion, as if my senses had suddenly been cross-wired. You donÂt put your hand in an oven expecting to feel cool water. You donÂt salt your meat expecting to taste sugar. And you certainly donÂt expect to wit-ness field hands walk-ing down the aisle of an upper east-side church in elegant suits and ties while a string quartet performs Bach in the background. By all rights, these folks should have appeared sweat-streaked and sobered from two decades of not just back-break-ing hard work for low pay (hell, theyÂve been doing that forever), but by their public resistance to what often went with that work: almost criminally low wages as a matter of course. Breathtakingly little sympathy for their lives on the part of many employers. Greed at their expense, excused away as the implacable narra-tive of Âthe market.ÂŽ Beatings, sexual abuse and kidnapping of individuals in the fields many times over the years. And a callous lack of compassion and under-standing for their needs and hopes Â„ for their children and grandchildren. The callousness has come not just from employers or corporate leaders, but from many of the rest of us, too, simply because weÂve been too comfortable to pay attention, or too wrongheaded to recognize the rights of field hands. The CoalitionÂs fight is far from over, therefore. Only some, not all, of the corporations who buy food from Flor-ida farmers have agreed that workers should be paid a penny more per pound for tomatoes they pick, for example Â„ which is the bottom line. ThatÂs what Coalition members define as a Âfair wage.ÂŽ For 33 years, from 1978 until 2011, field hands got 40 cents to pick a 32-pound bucket of tomatoes. ThatÂs 30 years with no raise. So, by 2010 one man or woman had to pick about 2.25 tons of tomatoes in a day to make the equivalent of minimum wage, with no benefits of any kind. ÂIn 1990,ÂŽ says Mr. Chavez, Â41 cents of every dollar you spent at the store would go to a farmer. In 2000, it was 24 cents of a dollar. That money was going to the top.ÂŽ It went to the owners of big retail franchises such as Walmart, who had changed the way business is done, and not to farmers or field hands. So now, there is only one conscionable thing for any of us to do: Join the Roosevelt Institute, and join the Coa-lition of Immokalee Workers, and join any neighborhood store or business that insists these men and women get a fair wage for a dayÂs work. ItÂs the conscionable thing to do, sure. And itÂs also the American thing to do for this most proud and American of organi-zations.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Oil, Azerbaijan and the strange case of Rick BourkeOil is the source of so much pain in the world. Around the globe, wherever oil is extracted, people suffer a constella-tion of injuries, from coups and dictator-ship to pollution, displacement and death. Pipelines leak, refineries explode, tankers break up and deep-sea drill rigs explode. The thirst for oil disrupts democracies and the climate. Not far from the bur-geoning fracking fields of Colorado, Fred-eric ÂRickÂŽ Bourke sits in a minimum-se-curity federal prison. His crime: blowing the whistle on corruption and bribery in the oil-rich region of the Caspian Sea. Rick Bourke is perhaps best known for founding the luxury handbag company Dooney and Bourke. He is a philanthro-pist, and has invested his wealth into ventures seeking novel cures for cancer. In the mid-1990s, he met a Czech national named Viktor Kozeny, dubbed ÂThe Pirate of Prague,ÂŽ who reaped tens of millions of dollars through controversial deals dur-ing the privatization of Czech national assets. Kozeny sought greater fortunes by recruiting investors for the takeover of SOCAR, the state-owned oil company of Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic on the western shore of the Caspian Sea. Kozeny promised unprecedented returns on the investments. Serious investors vetted the opportunity and sank huge sums into the enterprise, including Columbia UniversityÂs investment fund, the insurance giant AIG, legendary hedge-fund manager Lee Cooperman, a longtime executive at Goldman Sachs, and former Senate majority leader George Mitchell. BourkeÂs attorney, Michael Tigar, summed up the result on the ÂDemocracy Now!ÂŽ news hour: ÂKozeny was a crook. He stole every bit of Rick BourkeÂs money and all of the other investorsÂ money. He bribed Azeri officials. He lives today happily unextradited in the Bahamas.ÂŽ Kozeny paid huge sums to the president of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev. Like RussiaÂs President Vladimir Putin, Aliyev was a former top-level KGB official. He gained control of the country shortly after the Soviet breakup. His son, Ilham, dur-ing the period of KozenyÂs scheme, was the head of SOCAR. Kozeny employed a Swiss lawyer named Hans Bodmer to coordinate the complex scam. An Amer-ican named Thomas Farrell, who runs a bar in St. Petersburg, Russia, became the bagman, ferrying duffel bags of cash to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. The investment tanked, and Kozeny absconded with the remaining funds. Rick Bourke went to the Manhattan District AttorneyÂs Office, which has a history of going after white-collar crime. He spoke with Assistant District Attorney Mariam Klipper, an expert on privatization in Eastern Europe. The DAÂs office indicted Kozeny, who skirted the prosecution and is enjoying relative immunity in the Baha-mas. As the lone whistle-blower, Bourke also cooperated with federal prosecutors. Nev-ertheless, they decided to set their sights on him. He eventually was found guilty under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, not for bribing anyone, but for alleged knowledge of the bribes, even though the entire case rested on testimony of the Swiss lawyer, Bodmer, and Farrell. At sentencing, former assistant district attor-ney Klipper wrote to federal Judge Shira Scheindlin, seeking a lenient sentence for Bourke: ÂHe was extremely helpful,ÂŽ she wrote. He Âcame to my office voluntarily and spoke candidly and with conviction about the case. We did not offer anything in return. ... I never had reason to doubt him.ÂŽ While Bodmer and Farrell also were indicted, they received very favorable plea deals. They both quickly left the U.S. Much of the court record is sealed, likely because of the involvement of intel-ligence agencies. In a remarkable twist in the case, the former head of BritainÂs intelligence service, MI6, Sir Richard Dearl ove, and the former deputy director of operations at the CIA, James Pavitt, both sought to testify on BourkeÂs behalf. They were reportedly denied the oppor-tunity, perhaps to protect the intelligence value of both Bodmer and Farrell. In the murky world of petroleum geopolitics, it is very difficult to know. The son of Heydar Aliyev, Ilham Aliyev, succeeded his father as president of Azerbaijan, ruling the country with dictatorial control. He just won his third term as president last week, with the initial election results being reported the day BEFORE voting began. Human Rights Watch issued a report in Septem-ber, ÂTightening the Screws: AzerbaijanÂs Crackdown in Civil Society and Dissent.ÂŽ Rick Bourke sits in the federal prison in Englewood, Colo., sentenced to a year and a day. Former Washington Post reporter Scott Armstrong, who founded the National Security Archive and chaired the Government Accountability Project, spent years investigating the case. As a senior investigator on the Senate Water-gate Committee, Armstrong uncovered the existence of President Richard Nix-onÂs secret taping system. He knows cor-ruption when he sees it, and consid-ers Bourke a genuine whistle-blower. He summed up the case: ÂThis elaborate set of frauds that Kozeny was involved in were in essence covered up by the United States government, who chose instead to bring the full weight of their investigative enthusiasm against the whistle-blower. And that just shocks the conscience.ÂŽ Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Â„ Amy Goodman is the host of ÂDemocracy Now!,ÂŽ a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of ÂThe Silenced Majority,ÂŽ a New York Times best-seller.Nancy Pelosi infamously said that we had to pass Obamacare to find out whatÂs in it. The then-House speaker erroneously assumed, evidently, that people would be able to get onto the government-run exchanges created by the law. So far the lawÂs implementation has been as ugly as its passage. The rollout of Obamacare has been so disastrous that even ÂDaily ShowÂŽ host Jon Stewart was plainly mystified and unconvinced when Health and Human Services Sec-retary Kathleen Sebelius came on his show the other day to offer reassur-ances. Judging by the haphazard beginning Â„ error messages have been the norm, and the federal website has had to be taken offline several times Â„ youÂd guess that this was a back-burner proj-ect for the Obama administration, or the start date for the exchanges had been sprung on it a few weeks ago. Of course, it is the presidentÂs most cherished ini-tiative, and his team has had more than three years to get the exchanges up and running. Imagine the chaos if this were something the administration cared about less. The conservative trope used to be that Americans shouldnÂt want health care delivered by the people who run the post office. The new conservative trope could be that Americans shouldnÂt want health care delivered by the peo-ple who built HealthCare.gov. A young man named Chad Henderson achieved instant media celebrity by claiming to have signed up for Obamac-are on the federal exchange. So desper-ate were reporters to find someone who had managed this unlikely feat that they flocked to him for interviews about his amazing experience Â„ except even he hadnÂt actually done it. The website problems are the result, according to the administration, of over-whelming volume. Experts disagree. CBS quoted a sympathetic programmer named Luke Chung observing that Âit wasnÂt designed well, it wasnÂt imple-mented well, and it looks like nobody tested it.ÂŽ The Washington Post cited two allies of the administration who Âsaid they approached White House officials this year to raise concerns that the fed-eral exchange was not ready to launch. In both cases, Obama officials assured them there was no cause for alarm.ÂŽ Presumably, the administration will eventually make its website work, since it doesnÂt involve radically new technol-ogy. The more fundamental question is whether the larger project is sustainable when the exchanges need young and healthy people to sign up, at the same time they will have to pay sharply more under Obamacare. The San Jose (Calif.) Mercury Newsquoted one Cindy Vinson, an Obamac-are supporter, who was disconcerted to learn that she will have to pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy. ÂOf course, I want people to have health care,ÂŽ she said. ÂI just didnÂt realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.ÂŽ She might not have realized it because the president of the United States never mentions it. In all his speeches about Obamacare, he never quite gets around to the part about some premiums going up, which for people forced to pay more will probably be the most salient feature of the law. But hey, what possibly could go wrong?

PET TALESStress lessA trip to the veterinary ER is never easy, but these tips can help you get through it BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickTaking a pet to the emergency hospital is something none of us wants to do. ItÂs scary and stressful for you and your dog or cat. WeÂve been there more times than we like to think about, and we have some tips to help you cope. We hope you wonÂt ever need to use them, but tuck them away in the back of your mind just in case. Protect yourself when handling a sick or injured animal. Even the most docile dog or cat can bite when in pain. Keep a muzzle on hand or ask your veterinarian to show you how to safely tie one using a scarf or tie. Be patient. Your pet wonÂt be seen in the order of arrival. Animals who are most unstable will be seen first. ÂWe do them in order of medical need,ÂŽ says our friend and colleague Dr. Tony Johnson, an emergency and critical care specialist at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. ÂIf I have a hit-by-car and a dog with diarrhea, even if the dog with diarrhea has been waiting two hours, the hit-by-car is going to get seen first.ÂŽ The only time someone jumps that line, he says, is if theyÂre bringing in a pet to be euthanized. Be prepared to wait as little as five minutes or as long as six hours. It all depends on what other cases are there or come in while youÂre waiting. If you think about it before you leave the house, grab a book or your iPod in case youÂll be there for a while. If possible, have someone go with you or meet you there. You may need help getting your pet in and out of the car and into the hospital. And itÂs always good to have someoneÂs hand to hold while youÂre waiting. Designate a single person to communicate with the veterinarian, so he or she doesnÂt have to repeat information to multiple family members. Take notes or record the conversation on your smart-phone so you can refer back to it. DonÂt forget your wallet in your mad rush out of the house. Most veterinary hospitals wonÂt treat your pet without proof that you can pay for care. Your regular veterinary hospital might do that if youÂve been a client for years Â„ they know where you live and that youÂre probably not going to skip town Â„ but an emergency hospital isnÂt in that position. ÂIt sounds avaricious, but there are not too many emergency hospitals that are going to do something on a hand-shake,ÂŽ Dr. Johnson says. ÂERs usually see people once. They canÂt separate out the people who are a risk of not paying from those who arenÂt. TheyÂre not trying to be greedy.ÂŽ Know when to go. Some things are obvious. Take your pet to the emergency hospital in the following situations:Â€ allergic reactionsÂ€ any animal biteÂ€ bloated belly Â€ bloody diarrheaÂ€ difficulty breathingÂ€ distress from excessively hot or cold temperatures Â€ eye injuriesÂ€ frequent or projectile vomitingÂ€ heavy bleedingÂ€ ingestion of a toxic substance, such as antifreeze, human medications or snail bait Â€ seizuresÂ€ serious trauma, such as being hit by a car Â€ straining to urinate or defecateÂ€ sudden lamenessÂ€ unconsciousness or collapseÂ€ venomous snake or spider bites If youÂre not sure, well, we recommend erring on the side of caution. Like their counterparts in human medicine, veteri-nary emergency clinics are expensive, but sometimes the cost of a visit is a price worth paying for peace of mind. And when a visit saves your petÂs life? Priceless. Q Know when to take your pet to the emergency hospital. Pets of the Week

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDan McNoughton, a 22-year-old com-puter science student at Valencia College in Orlando, did his research in advance, got online at 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 1 Â„ the day the American ship of state changed course and turned directly into the wind of the Affordable Care Act Â„ and within two hours had purchased a plan for $70 a month. That plan will give him all the health care he could possibly need, he says, with co-pays for doctorÂs visits of only $20 after the first three free visits. ÂI had no problem getting insurance,ÂŽ Mr. McNoughton recalls. ÂI think itÂs because everybody else was still asleep that first day.ÂŽItÂs a significant step in the right direction for the Cape Coral native. His mother got cancer 12 years ago and became dis-abled, causing his father to quit a good job as a Publix manager to be able to take care of her and the kids, while working a much lower-paying job in sales, before he got cancer four years ago and died earlier this year.Between his 12th and 22nd year, Mr. McNoughton and his younger sister went from middleor upper-middle-class liv-ing, as he describes it, to living in dif-ficult circumstances after his parents were chopped down economically by health-care costs they couldnÂt afford, and defeated physically by disease. ÂWhat IÂve seen is that we (Americans) have good health care, but if you have something major and you donÂt have the income to sustain a very expensive healthÂ…care plan and pay out-of-pocket, you have to make a choice: whether to keep the same standard of living and then just die, or whether to completely change your life and cash in your time, just to be able to live. And that doesnÂt seem like a well-thought-out or a fair system.ÂŽ Which is why the Affordable Care Act seems a lot better than nothing to Mr. McNaughton. ÂIÂm kind of excited for this. It doesnÂt come close to solving half of the prob-lems, but itÂs a step in the right direction,ÂŽ he concludes.All the other birdsMr. McNoughton may be the early bird who got the worm, but that still leaves all the other birds. Although at least a million people qualify immediately on paper for subsidized insurance under the new federal program in Florida, only a few thousand at most have managed to enroll, so far. The exact numbers were not available at the end of last week from federal officials or their regional helpers contracted by the gov-ernment. Those men and women struggled to sign up even a small minority of people eager to take advantage of the new pro-gram. Some of them, already trained to help as Ânavigators,ÂŽ had not received official certifications because the federal gov-ernment remained shut down, with key officials furloughed. Thus, they could not offer official aid to people calling in or visiting their offices for help, starting Oct. 1. Not only that, but Florida state officials banned them from working out of county health depart-ments. Once again in American life, need and politics had collided head on, it seemed, leaving individuals to struggle along. The problems for many working-class citizens have amounted to two in Octo-ber: First, the official government web-site for enrolling in private health-care plans (www.healthcare.gov) regularly and repeatedly broke down in mid process. Second, officials answering the phone on help lines sometimes have passed out conflicting information, or can not get through the online process themselves on behalf of would-be enrollees.ÂIÂve been desperate for it for three years, and I still donÂt have it,ÂŽ said Debo-rah Neuhaus, 61, who has probably spent 30 or more hours in the first 10 days try-ing to get herself and her husband, Heinz, signed up. Mr. Neuhaus is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Germany. ÂThis would not happen there, where nobody pays more than about $500 a month,ÂŽ he said. The owner of a small limousine service in West Palm Beach, Mr. Neuhaus had a heart attack in 2004. The couple have struggled since, and Mrs. Neuhous, by vocation and desire a painter, was laid off last month from a job sheÂd held for 10 years just so she could keep health insur-ance for the couple. Now, theyÂre paying $1,485 a month, which she hopes to reduce to less than $300 a month under the new act. CONFUSING C ARE LOVE IT OR HATE ITÂ—THE FACTS ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT ITH NO HELP FROM STATE OFFICIALDOM, AFFORDABLE health care under the federal program that launched more than three weeks ago is off to a frequently frustrating start for the Sunshine StateÂs almost 4 million uninsured residents. ItÂs frustrating for many others who will be affected by it, as well Â„ about 15 million of them here. But not for all.W Where to nd answersQ Visit www.healthcare.org Q Call 1-800-318-2596 Q For an estimate of what a health plan could cost you and your family, visit http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator Q If you currently have insurance through your business, coverage should remain the same for now. Your employer may have information whether or not your plan is changing. Essential coverageMost health insurance policies are now required to cover these areas: Q ambulatory patient services Q emergency services Q hospitalization Q maternity and newborn care Q mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment Q prescription drugs Q rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices Q laboratory services Q preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management Q pediatric services, including oral and vision care.The mandateEveryone is required to buy health insurance. If you don't buy insurance, you're subject to a ne, which may be less than the cost of insurance. However, the nes will increase in years to come. The nesYou can't go to jail or be prosecuted for tax evasion for failing to pay the ne. The IRS can, however, take the money out of your tax rebate if you have one coming to you. You'll also be re-sponsible for medical bills if you need health care and aren't insured. Here's what the nes will cost: Q In 2014, $95, or 1 percent of household income, whichever is greater. Q In 2015, it goes up to $325 or 2 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; Q In 2016, it goes up to $695 or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; and... Q In 2017 and beyond, it goes up to $695 plus a cost-of-living adjustment, or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater.

Ms. Neuhaus is optimistic that Obamacare might allow her to paint more instead of working full-time to afford health insurance. PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY BY ROGER WILLIAMS Â RWILLIAMS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM
But the government computers broke down, the information sheÂd just spent hours putting into a federal file disap-peared into the ether, the officials answer-ing the phone kept losing their places in a computer queue or giving her different information about driverÂs licenses and naturalization numbers for Heinz, and so on. And so on. And so on, she explained. Her advice to anybody else: ÂHave persistence. Persistence is what you need, and you have to keep persisting until you get it solved. DonÂt give up. Ask for help. It has to be solved.ÂŽFrom the front lines of officialdomBesides, bugs should be expected in the first days and weeks Â„ thereÂs plenty of time to work them out, officials say. ÂWe had such good momentum coming into this, and itÂs sort of discouraging to see it drop off. But itÂll get fixed,ÂŽ says John Foley, a legal aid attorney and the navigator coordinator for Palm Beach and three other east-coast counties. ÂThese problems really took the wind out of our sails,ÂŽ admits his colleague, Vicki Tucci. ÂWe get ready, we have hundreds of phone calls coming into the office, we have people walking into the office, hun-dreds are trying to gather information or sit down and make an appointment, and there are delays. WeÂve had to reset appointments. The first person we sat down with couldnÂt get on the system.ÂŽ It took about eight working days before the Palm Beach navigators signed up even the first person, she says. That was happening elsewhere as well, but it didnÂt seem to discourage officials. ÂOn a scale of 1 to 10, my level of optimism about this is a 10,ÂŽ says Lynn Thor-pe, the navigator coordinator for 10 coun-ties on the west coast. She directs the work of 18 navigators both fulland part-time, some mobile and some stationed in offices, all working from a federal grant that will pay their salaries for a year. ÂPeople knew this was coming, they had time to get educated, and I think the call center is working out well,ÂŽ she says. ÂFor people who are frustrated getting online themselves, they can call the 800 number and do their eligibility and cre-ate an account that way, (1-800-318-2596).ÂŽ No insurance plans in the new affordable care begin to provide coverage until Jan. 1, so individuals have until Dec. 15 to sign up for coverage that begins at the start of 2014, she says. And they have until mid-March to sign up for future coverage without being subject to penalties if they donÂt, starting in 2014. Although nobody can be prosecuted for not signing up for health insurance, any-body who fails to sign up by next year can lose money in tax rebates, if they have those coming, according to federal rules. But bugs or no bugs in the new process, ÂThe train has left the station,ÂŽ says Tom Rice, president and CEO of Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Charlotte County, one of 160 in the Hospital Corporation of America chain based in Nashville. ÂItÂs the biggest change in American life since Medicaid in the 1960s. I donÂt see us going back. When Medicaid start-ed, it took several years to work out the bugs, IÂve been told, and thatÂs going to happen here.ÂŽ Although hospital administrators at St. MaryÂs Medical Center and at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Palm Beach County would not comment for this story, others around the state freely shared their thoughts as the Affordable Care Act struggled to lift off. ÂWeÂre all in a learning curve right now Â„ our country, our state and our com-munity,ÂŽ said Dr. Allen Weiss, president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System in Naples. ÂAnd weÂre cautiously optimistic that this will be good for the country, the state and the community.ÂŽ Dr. Weiss sees Affordable Health Care as a work in longtime progress. ÂThis will help a million people Â„ and VOICES:QLaura Brennaman, nurse, teacher, health-care activist and doctoral candidate in health policy:Â“I was at the Supreme Court both for the arguments and the decision. I spent the night on the sidewalk in front of the Supreme Court so I could see it. ItÂ’s the biggest thing to affect health care in this country since Medicare and Medicaid in 1964 because it rede nes us as a people who look out for each other and for ourselves as a community and nation. Â“So I was the second person in line, a line made up of mostly people that were being paid by lobbyists and others Â— they were place holders, mostly homeless men, for somebody else who would show up early in the morning. They really needed health insurance themselves. They were being paid $6 an hour, with no food. It was shameful. Â“Most of the people who came early in the morning to take their places were lobbyists or young people doing internships. But the person next to me was holding a place for Michele Bachmann. She came early, she was quite gracious when I introduced myself, and we talked about it. When I chal-lenged her about why not give Affordable Care a try, she said the way it would be xed was through allowing insurances to cross state lines. I asked her how she thought that would work out for the banking industry. Â“When Justice Roberts was reading the decision, at rst, it sounded as though the decision was going to go against the Affordable Care Act. And Bachmann was just grinning, really excited. Â“But when that changed and he got to the part about allowing it under taxation, her face fell. It just froze, it was an absolute change. There were two dissents, but Michele Bachmann just got up and stormed out. YouÂ’re not allowed to move, to chew gum or make noise or shift around, but she just marched out.Â”QJim Nathan, president and CEO, Lee Memorial Health System:Â“ItÂ’s very possible that Florida will not be in a better negotiating position with the federal government than today. Â“The feds want Florida, a big swing state, to be in this program. So, you see other states Â— Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana Â— a number of other states, that have tried to gure out a different approach than just following Medicaid expansion guidelines. TheyÂ’re in the process of negotiating with the feds. I believe this is the time to do that. Â“The money is being collected by the feds to pay for (uninsured people living below the poverty line), and we have an obligation to the state to collect this back Â— about $51 billion over the next 10 years. If the money isnÂ’t here, everybody will suffer.Â”QJohn Foley, Navigator, Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County:Â“There are (several) ways to do the exchanges, which is the marketplace: one is, the state runs what the federal government is running in Florida. New York has one, California has one Â— those are doing the same thing as the federal government, but theyÂ’re working. In Florida, we rejected everything. Â“We could change our mind, but theyÂ’d have to call an emergency sessionÂ…thatÂ’s unlikely. Â“None of the groups oppose them. It appears to be a tea-party kind of thing. Even Gov. Scott decided to accept it. Â“One positive thing: you hear these horrible stories, like about somebody with cancer and doing a fundraiser on Facebook Â— now, itÂ’s going to be easier to give them a couple thousand dollars and get them a policy on the marketplace. Â“I can see charities for people who donÂ’t have insurance and can Â‘t afford the out-of-pocket expense. Who wouldnÂ’t want to do that?Â”QTed Deutch, Democratic U.S. Representative based in Palm Beach: Â“The Affordable Health Care plan is already three years old. ItÂ’s working. I know from my own district, how: There are now over 6,000 young people on their parentsÂ’ plan who wouldnÂ’t have been, before; close to 20,000 seniors have received prescription drug discounts; and almost 140,000 seniors are eligible for Medicare prevention services with no co-pays Â— there are 187,000 people, including 40,000 kids, who have insurance that is now free-of-charge to keep them healthier. Â“A family of four making about $50,000 a year can get a quality plan for $280 a month. Â“Some of the navigators are talking about having mental health practitioners with them Â— for a lot of people who have gone all their lives praying they donÂ’t get sick and knowing theyÂ’ll wind up in an emergency room if they do, this is a dramatic step forward in their lives.Â“ThatÂ’s been the most important part of the rst (20) days. Â“Unfortunately, Medicaid expansion has not yet come to Florida. I just spent four days with business leaders from south Florida, here for a summit. Medicaid expansion is a key issue for them. Employers wonÂ’t pay a penalty for low-wage workers who enroll in Medicaid. This would help the state business community, and soÂ…I donÂ’t understand the governorÂ’s decision to turn it back.Â” SEE CARE, A10 Â‹there are three million others. But you have to start somewhere. ÂHere is something my parents used to say: ÂDonÂt let perfect get in the way of good.ÂÂŽWho gets helpClearly, no ÂperfectÂŽ exists in the new system, but there may be plenty of good for those who qualify, which is reason enough to move forward aggressively, many insist. The two synonymous terms now being used in affordable care Â„ Âthe exchangesÂŽ and Âthe marketplaceÂŽ Â„ describe where consumers can go to shop for compet-ing health insurance plans. Depending on their locations in Florida, people can generally choose from about 60 to more than 100 options. Although those plans are up for sale to anybody, theyÂre subsidized for indi-viduals and families whose incomes fall between 100 and 400 percent of the so-called federal poverty level, which prob-ably describes most people who work in the service industries, in common labor jobs, or in the midto lower strata of white-collar jobs. The poverty level this year amounts to just less than $11,500 for a single person, plus another $4,000 or so for each addi-tional family member. (For a family of four, therefore, the federal poverty level is defined as $23,550.) Individuals could earn up to about $46,000 (400 percent of the poverty level), or $94,200 for a family of four, and benefit significantly by getting tax credits or subsidies to help them pay for any plan they choose. Under the new Affordable Care Act, those struggling at or near the federal poverty level Â„ people typically unin-sured who wait to solve medical prob-lems until extremely expensive emer-gency care is required Â„ will pay little for health insurance. And nobody at any income range in American life should have to pay no more than 9.5 percent of his or her annual adjusted gross income for health care.Who gets hurt at the bottomIf that goal represents the top of the mountain of success, the effort to reach it remains at sea level in Florida, which has the second-highest number of uninsured citizens in the nation, behind California. There, state leaders opted to set up their own program and added millions to federal dollars that flowed in to help for training and preparation prior to Oct. 1 Â„ an open-armed embrace of a federal law under state terms that has proven remark-ably successful in the first three weeks, according to news reports. By contrast, FloridaÂs elected officials led by Gov. Rick Scott rejected affordable care outright. Passed into law in 2010 then challenged after the fact, Affordable Care was upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court last year, after which Gov. Scott tepidly agreed that it should be accepted. But the Florida House of Representatives, guided by 34-year-old Panama City businessman and Republican House Speaker Will Weatherford, has chosen to reject both the federal plan for affordable care and a huge cache of Medicaid money aimed at those who live below the federal poverty level Â„ another million people in Florida. That program is called Medicaid expansion, and its absence in Florida creates a huge and costly irony. Now, a person making between $11,500 and about $15,000 per year can buy health insurance that requires an $80 co-pay for a doctorÂs visit, but costs exactly nothing per month. But a Floridian making below that poverty level, say about $11,000, qualifies for no subsidy help at all, as it now stands, and will end up having to pay $2,785 per year for health insurance, estimates show. But that almost-insolvent soul will likely get care if he or she goes to an emer-gency room. Then, itÂs everybody else who will get hurt. Unless FloridaÂs legislative leaders choose to reverse their decision and embrace Medicaid expansion, or unless Gov. Scott decides to override the legisla-tive imperative to reject federal help as the Republican governor of Ohio did early this week, they will give up $51 billion in federal money over the next 10 years Â„ money coming in large part from taxes paid by Floridians, anyway, according to hospital officials, business leaders and the politicians from both parties who hope to accept the federal help.Who gets hurt at the topNot only that, but unless the politicians call an emergency legislative ses-sion before the end of this year Â„ if, for example, they wait until spring to negoti-ate a state program that accepts Medicaid expansion Â„ they will probably sacrifice more than $1 billion, and perhaps as much as $5 billion right off the bat, suggests Jim Nathan, president and CEO of Lee Memo-rial Health System based in Fort Myers, one the the five largest public health systems in the United States, according to safetynetsflorida.org. Then everybody else suffers, not just the ones below the poverty level. ÂItÂs not them, the million uninsured people that Medicaid expansion would have provided coverage for Â„ itÂs the other 18 million Floridians who will get hurt,ÂŽ Mr. Nathan says. HereÂs why: ÂThere are four million uninsured people in the state of Florida. A milA9 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY
A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY lion will be covered by exchanges that went on the market. And another million were to be covered by the expansion of Medicaid.ÂŽ In effect, Florida taxpayers will pay for that second million twice Â„ first by paying taxes to the federal government that will not come back to Florida, and second by having to pay for the care of the uninsured anyway, when it becomes both essential and expensive. Of course, thereÂs one other possibility that could result from the LegislatureÂs rejection of Medicaid expansion, suggests Mr. Nathan: poorer health care for every-one, not just the uninsured. ÂEverybody ends up suffering by not bringing the money back,ÂŽ he explains. ÂItÂs not like there are separate doors for the uninsured, the minimally insured, those on Medicaid and Medicare, the commercially insured and so on Â„ no. Everybody goes in the same door. ÂSo if the money isnÂt here, everything suffers, for everyone. The programs, ser-vices, facilities, staffing Â„ all of that will suffer. Then you have the fact that the money, which is creating jobs, wonÂt be here to do that, so people will look to states that do have money. Which means weÂre reducing our recruitment and retention capabilities.ÂŽ Oh, and one other thing: ÂWeÂre also reducing our bond rating for borrowing.ÂŽ Need a new hospital wing or an improvement to a cancer center? You can likely forget it under this strategy, he says.The growing recognition of needBusinesses throughout Florida are recognizing the effects of the rejection of Medicaid expansion, too. In a letter to state Republican legislators who voted to reject the federal help, David Miller, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Florida, put his concerns this way: ÂOur members are concerned about FloridaÂs potential loss of $51 billion in federal dol-larsÂƒ This is money that the taxpayers of Florida have already sent to Washington, and this money will go to other states if we do not find a solution. ÂCurrent federal Medicare laws and regulations will reduce the reimbursement to Lee Memorial Health System alone by $476 million over the next 10 years. Nearly half-a-billion dollars is a staggering amount of lost revenue for services that must still be provided to our residents and visitors. We must find solutions so we can continue to provide essential health services for our community needs,ÂŽ Mr. Miller said. While such pleas are increasing in volume and number, the Republican-led State House, in particular, has been slow to respond, even in a state where almost one out of four are uninsured. ÂMedicaid has been proven to be one of the worst forms of insurance you can get in America,ÂŽ Rep. Weatherford said in a widely quoted public statement last month Â„ but not for him and his family. A Medicaid program helped his parents pay a figure cited at $100,000 to care for his late brother, Peter, who died of cancer. That policy stance, especially after a federal government shutdown that is esti-mated will cost more than $3 billion, has garnered the attention of elected leaders on Capitol Hill, including U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, a District 21 Democrat based in Palm Beach, who blames Gov. Scott for not pushing the Legislature to expand Medicaid. ÂHeÂs the leader in the state, and heÂs done nothing,ÂŽ he says. ÂWhatÂs so obvious to me is that Medicaid expansion is a no-brainer to everyone involved in Florida, except our governor and our Legislature. It has support from the business community, the medical commu-nity, from doctors and hospitals, from local officials, from mental-health advocates Â„ from everybody else. By refusing to extend Medicaid to a million low-wage workers, the governor and the Legislature are short-changing Florida taxpayers.ÂŽThe view from the other sideThatÂs not how everybody sees it, however Â„ especially not U.S. Rep. Trey Radel, a District 19 Republican elected to Con-gress last year with strong support from tea party advocates who also abhor the Affordable Care Act.In particular, Rep. Radel cited as victims of the new laws people who make more than 400 percent of the federal poverty level Â„ thus, those with incomes of more than about $96,000 for a family of four.ÂWhat we have seen from the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is high-er premiums and fewer choices for you and your family,ÂŽ he said in comments emailed from his press secretary, Amanda Nuez. ÂRight now, major employers in Southwest Florida are dropping health cover-age because of the high cost, all while the American public is living under the threat of a fine if they donÂt buy what the government tells them to buy. This law is a mess for everyone involved.ÂŽ In the case of Gary Carico, who manages a window tinting shop in Lee County, sticking with the private plan he and his children are on will mean paying a huge increase in monthly fees Â„ from $297 to $571 (Mr. Carico is the husband of a Flor-ida Weekly employee). So he will have to shop around, he says. For Dan Vonderheide, a former resident of Fort Myers who now owns a website production company based in Louisville, Ky., a massive jump in insurance rates for the policy heÂs maintained to date put the lie to promises made by President Obama about the new health care. ÂMy plan for my family is more than doubling,ÂŽ he said last week. ÂÂIf you like your plan, you can keep your plan,Â doesnÂt mean much.ÂŽ Those words are a close paraphrase of a promise President Obama made starting in 2009. Few or none understand just where the bottom line lies for such individuals, or for businesses, which are subject to a wide range of new obligations coming into effect between next year and 2017, depending in part on their size. And itÂs difficult to understand why insurance rates for many working people who are not defined as poor or living at up to 400 percent of poverty will jump suddenly. Even Jim Roach, who ran for Congress as a Democrat against Rep. Radel last year Â„ in large part by promoting the Afford-able Care Act, which he had read and studied through its entire 906 pages Â„ is baffled by rising insurance rates. ÂI donÂt know why the insurance companies are raising rates on insurance for some large corporations, or why some corporations are choosing to change the cost share with their employees,ÂŽ he says. But one thing is certain in his mind: ÂIt does not have anything to do with the poverty level or if you make more than 400 percent of it. It also does not appear to be blanket across the board.ÂŽ For businesses that employ fewer than 50 people, the so-called SHOP exchange (an acronym for the Small Business Health Options Program) is lowering the price they will pay to help cover their employees, he adds. As for the big corporations, ÂFrom what I have heard, there has been very little change to the big corporate insurance costs since their actuarial costs have not changed,ÂŽ he notes. After the 2012 election, Mr. Roach joined the Republican party. And he continues to disagree with Rep. Radel about some aspects of affordable care, but perhaps agrees about others. ÂI have heard nothing but confusion and uncertainty coming from hospitals and health professionals as to how this law is going to work, what they should be prepared for and how much it is going to cost,ÂŽ says Rep. Radel, who would not offer an opinion about Medicaid expan-sion in Florida. ÂThat is a decision for the Florida Legislature and the governor,ÂŽ he observes. As for the federal government shutdown that deeply affected the first two weeks of Affordable Care in Florida, Rep. Radel says this: ÂI have been working with my colleagues in the House through late nights and weekends to get the government open. We (voted) 16 times to open all or parts of the government. All we (were) asking for (was) a delay of the Obamacare fine, known as the individual mandate, on you and your family. ÂThe president already gave businesses and corporations a waiver from the rules for a full year. He should do the same for taxpaying Americans.ÂŽHow it works in briefWhatever the outc ome of the political shoot out, almost a million working individuals in the Sunshine State who qualify for the inexpensive, subsidized new rates will get up this week without insurance. For those who arenÂt sure whatÂs happening, several experts recommend first going on a private website such as the one maintained by the Kaiser Family Foun-dation, here: www.KFF.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator. By putting in the relevant information Â„ where you live, your age, your income Â„ the calculator gives you an accurate sense of what you will pay in the federal program. ÂIf youÂve ever shopped for individual insurance before, you know itÂs a night-mare,ÂŽ says Laura Brennaman, a longtime emergency-room nurse, now teacher and health-care activist who lives on FloridaÂs west coast, and is coincidentally earning a doctorate in nursing and health policy at the University of New Mexico. ÂThis will change all that, but it is not for people over 65, who qualify for Medi-care, or for those (who are comfortably situated in life).ÂŽ On the new exchange, she says, the process is simplified and made transparent, so shoppers can compare one health plan to another, which used to be difficult if not impossible to do with clarity. ÂSo there are four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum,ÂŽ she explains.Any plan labeled as one of those metals, for any income level, will do roughly the same thing: ÂThe bronze pays 60 percent, the silver pays 70 percent, the gold pays 80 percent, and the platinum pays 90 percent.ÂŽPeople who expect to see a doctor very little, for example Â„ young people, people in excellent health, people who donÂt smoke or drink excessively Â„ may choose one plan with a higher co-pay, but people who may need to see the doctor several or many times might choose a plan with a low co-pay. The closer you are to the federal poverty level, the cheaper it is Â„ only 2 percent of your annual income for those earning up to 133 percent of the poverty level, for example. There are many variations, Mrs. Brennaman says, but they will ultimately help both the insured, and those Â„ the rest of us Â„ who pay for all the medical costs of the uninsured or underinsured in their own policies. ÂSo if you make 100 to 150 percent of the poverty level, your premium will not exceed 4 percent, but the actuarial of that silver plan, for example, will be increased from 80 percent to 94 percentÂƒ it would mean youÂre getting Cadillac insurance for Chevy prices.ÂŽ And in the end, it will also mean this: ÂPeople will not go bankrupt anymore over medical expenses.ÂŽ And other people will not have to cover the costs after they go bankrupt. As it turns out, thatÂs a 20th century model in America that appears to be com-ing sl owly and grudgingly to an end. Q (Florida Weekly Editor Osvaldo Padilla contributed to this report.)

NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEPet souls releasedQ Land developers for the iconic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. (famous as the inspiration for the hotel in Stephen KingÂs ÂThe Shin-ingÂŽ) announced recently that they need more space and thus will dig up and move the hotelÂs 12-gravesite pet cemetery. Neighbors told the Fort Collins Coloradan in September that they feared the construction noise, but somehow ignored the potential release of departed spirits (though an ÂAnimal PlanetÂŽ Âdog psychicÂŽ who lives in Estes Park seemed to volunteer her ser-vices to calm the petsÂ souls). Q Advice of counselQ After consulting with a lawyer, Evan Dobelle, president of Massa-chusettsÂ Westfield State University, accused of billing the state for unau-thorized travel expenses, is reportedly considering claiming that he actually Âself-reportedÂŽ the violations as soon as suspicions turned up. Mr. Dobelle says he would thus be entitled to the protection of the state ÂwhistleblowerÂŽ statute, which shields inside informers when they expose wrongdoing. (Mr. Dobelle was placed on paid leave in October.) Q In September, landlord Elwyn Gene Miller, 64, went on trial in Iowa City, Iowa, for spying on tenants in the small ap artment building he owns Â„ after apparently having constructed peepholes allowing him views into bathrooms and other areas, and having been spotted climbing from a crawl space after accessing one peephole. Nonetheless, as Mr. MillerÂs lawyer pointed out, the law applies only to peeping for Âsexual gratification,ÂŽ and there is no Âfirst-hand knowl-edge or observationÂŽ that Miller was ÂarousedÂŽ at the time he was spotted. (At press time, the judge was mulling a decision.) Q William Woodward of Titusville, awaiting trial on two murder counts in September, might normally have a weak defense under the stateÂs Âstand your groundÂŽ law (which requires an Âimmi-nentÂŽ threat of a forcible felony) because evidence indicates that any threats against him were made previously and not at the time of the shooting. However, in a court filing, Mr. WoodwardÂs lawyers justified the pre-emptive ground-stand-ing by referring to the ÂBush DoctrineÂŽ employed by the U.S. in invading Iraq in 2003 (the U.S. Âstanding its groundÂŽ against Iraqi weapons of mass destruc-tion). The judge promised a ruling by November. Q Compelling explanationsQ A 77-year-old motorist told police in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan, that he was going the wrong way on the Takamatsu Expressway only because he had missed his exit 1 km back and thought it best just to turn the car around and retrace the path back to the ramp. Police said his short September jaunt had caused a collision, not affecting the manÂs own car. Q In October, Jeffrey Laub, 39, was sentenced on several traffic charges, including leading police on a 111 mph, ÂDukes of Hazzard-styleÂŽ chase through Logan Canyon near Logan, Utah, with the explanation only that he needed an emergency restroom because of some-thing he ate. Judge Thomas Willmore called the excuse Âone of the worstÂŽ he had heard, since Mr. Laub had passed several public toilets during the chase. Q Riverview schoolteacher Ethel Anderson, 31, was convicted in Septem-ber of having sex with a 12-year-old boy she was tutoring, despite her attempt to explain away the key evidence Â„ Âhun-dredsÂŽ of sexual text messages Â„ as mere ÂrewardsÂŽ to get his attention and encourage progress in math. Q People with issuesQ Among the many arrested recently for having solitary sex in public was Philip Milne, 74, ultimately convict-ed in the U.K.Âs Bedford MagistratesÂ Court of touching himself on a transit bus although he claimed he was merely ÂshampooingÂŽ his troubled genital area and resented Âbeing treated like a hard-ened criminal.ÂŽ Also, Stuart Clarke, 48, of Provo, Ut ah, had explaining to do after an incident on Delta Air Lines in 2012. He said that he was rubbing his exposed penis only because it burned from accidental contamination with peppermint oil (which so distressed him that, upon landing, he left behind a checked bag). The FBI Joint Terror-ism Task Force found that out and is currently investigating whether there is more to the Âpeppermint oilÂŽ story than embarrassment-avoidance. Q

A18 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYIbis residents to trick-or-treat for annual food drive This Halloween, adults in costumes will go door-to-door in the Ibis Golf & Country Club community to collect thousands of pounds of canned food as part of the Ibis Charities Halloween Food Drive. It is the second year they have done it for the food drive. The food will be donated to the Palm Beach County Food Bank to be distributed to agen-cies that feed the hungry in Palm Beach County, as well as to families in need at Grove Park Elementary School in West Palm Beach. In advance of the food drive, 3,500 brown paper Whole Foods grocery bags are being distributed to Ibis homeowners. Inside each bag is a flier informing residents that the most-needed items are pasta, rice, cereals, peanut b utter, jelly, canned soups, vegetables, fruit and meat. Co-chaired by Ibis residents John Hayes and Hal Gottschall, the food drive committee has set goals of col-lecting 18,000 pounds of food and $10,000 in cash donations. Many of the cash donations come from Ibis residents who have not yet returned to their Florida homes for the winter season, but wish to support this com-munity effort. Last year in its inau-gural effort, the Ibis Halloween Food Drive collected 14,500 pounds of food and $8,000 in cash donations. As co-chairs of the event, Mr. Hayes and Mr. Gottschall are confident that their motto of ÂIbis CaresÂŽ will be well demonstrated in an outpouring of support from the developmentÂs 33 neighborhoods, home to more than 5,000 residents. ÂWe know that as many as 225,000 people in Palm Beach County are at risk of going to bed hungry each night during these tough economic times,ÂŽ Mr. Gottschall said in a pre-pared statement. ÂWe want to make a positive impact in the fight against hunger while having some fun at this festive time of the year.ÂŽ Mr. Hayes added that Palm Beach County Food Bank was chosen as the recipient of the food because it is the only food bank in Palm Beach County that does not charge agencies for food it distributes. It also devotes all of its resources and donations to feed the hungry exclusively in Palm Beach County. Twenty-five percent of the food donated will be distributed by the food bank to families in need at near-by Grove Park Elementary School. ÂWe know it is a professionallyrun organization and that all of our donations will go directly to feed the hungry here in our own county,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said in the statement. Palm Beach County Food Bank Executive Director Perry Borman said the Ibis Charities Food Drive is a model of community support and one that could be replicated in other com-munities. ÂIt is an absolute pleasure to work with a community that is so dedicated to helping those in need outside of their own neighborhood,ÂŽ Mr. Bor-man said. ÂThe entire Ibis team of volunteers is very well organized and enthusiastic and we are extremely grateful for their efforts.ÂŽ The Palm Beach County Food Bank is dedicated to fighting hunger and food insecurity in Palm Beach County by collecting and distributing food to dozens of soup kitchens, homeless shelters and food pantries in Palm Beach County. For more information about the Palm Beach County Food Bank, visit pbcfoodbank.org, or call 670-2518, Ext. 303. Q Two men join board at Palm Beach County Food Bank The Palm Beach County Food Bank has announced that James Greco and Greg Howell have been elected to its board of directors. Mr. Greco is the for-mer CEO of Sbarro, one of the worldÂs leading Ital-ian quick service res-taurant con-cepts. He has also served as CEO of BrueggerÂs Enterprises, Inc. and Field-brook Farms Corporation. He has been a member of the Dine Out Advi-sory Board of Share Our Strength and on the board of directors of both the Con-necticut Food Bank and the International Dairy Foods Associa-tion. In 2009, Mr. Greco was named Operator of the Year, one of the industryÂs highest honors, by NationÂs Restaurant News, which annually rec-ognizes a CEO for outstanding lead-ership with this award. Mr. Greco and his wife reside in Boynton Beach. Mr. Howell is the store manager of the Delray Plaza Publix, having worked his way up the corporate ladder from a starting position as a stock clerk 18 years ago. A native of Jamaica, Mr. Howell is involved with the United Way and other Publix-sponsored charities. He lives in Royal Palm Beach with his wife, Jennifer, and two children. ÂWe are pleased that these two businessmen with great local as well as national and international busi-ness experience and expertise will be helping to guide the efforts of the Palm Beach County Food Bank as we grow in our service to help feed the hungry in Palm Beach County,ÂŽ said Palm Beach County Food Bank Executive Director Perry Borman, in a prepared statement.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach Gardens Medical Center receives heart-care award SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach Gardens Medical Center recently accepted the Get With The GuidelinesÂ…Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association. The recognition signifies that Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has treat-ed its heart failure patients according to the guidelines of care recommended by the American Heart Association/Ameri-can College of Cardiology. The Get With The Guidelines program is a quality improvement initiative that provides hospital staff with tools that follow proven evidence-based guidelines and procedures in caring for heart failure patients to improve outc omes, prevent future hospitalizations and prolong life. ÂWe are proud that the American Heart Association is recognizing Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center for our achievements,ÂŽ said Larry Coomes, CEO of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. ÂGet With The Guidelines gives our professionals the tools and reports they need to help them effectively treat our coronary heart disease and heart failure patients.ÂŽ The Get With The Guidelines program provides hospitals with a web-based patient management tool, decision support, robust registry, real-time bench-marking capabilities and other perfor-mance improvement methodologies. The quick and efficient use of guideline pro-cedures can improve the quality of care for heart failure patients, save lives and ultimately, reduce healthcare costs by lowering the recurrence of heart attacks. ÂThe Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center team is to be commended for their commitment to improving the care of their patients,ÂŽ said Dr. Lee H. Schwamm, chair of the Get With The Guidelines National Steering Committee. ÂRecent stud-ies show that patients treated in hospitals par-ticipating in the pro-gram receive a higher quality of care and may experience better out-comes.ÂŽ Following program guidelines, patients are started on aggressive risk-reduction therapies if needed, including cholester-ol-lowering drugs, beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, aspirin, diuretics and antico-agulants while in the hospital. Before discharge, they also receive education on managing their heart failure and over-all health, including lifestyle modifica-tions and follow-up care. Hospitals must adhere to these measures at a set level for a designated period of time to be eli-gible for the achievement awards. According to the American Heart Association, about 5.7 million people suffer from heart failure. Statistics also show that each year, 670,000 new cases are diagnosed and more than 277,000 people will die of heart failure. Howev-er, many heart failure patients can lead a full, enjoyable life when their condition is managed with proper medications, devices and healthy lifestyle changes. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is a 199-bed acute care hospital serving the medial and healthcare needs of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast for more than 43 years. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center was the first hospital in Palm Beach County to per-form open-heart surgery, and has since remained one of the areaÂs leading heart hospitals, having performed more than 15,000 open-heart surgeries. The hospital has achieved many awards and designa-tions, including being named a five-star recipient for Coronary Interventional Procedure for eleven years in a row (2003-2013).

Q Listen to your anger Â— itÂ’s often a message of something elseOnce again, Jill asked herself: ÂIs it worth the fight?ÂŽ Jill could NEVER win an argument with her husband Ken. The latest issue pertained to JillÂs sister, Marlene. Ken COULD NOT STAND Marlene. Ken was still furious that Marlene hadnÂt flown to Florida from New Jersey to help when the sistersÂ mother had broken her hip. The bulk of the arrangements and caretaking had fallen on JillÂs shoulders. Although she agreed with Ken that Marlene could have been more considerate, Jill loved her sister. MarleneÂs friends were making her a surprise 60th birthday party and Jill wanted to fly to New Jersey to attend. Ken reminded her that Marlene hadnÂt put herself out to attend JillÂs special birthday event, and he didnÂt think Jill should assume the costs either. But Jill knew it wasnÂt about the money. Ken would be annoyed to be left alone and would resent her visit up north. He would make her life miserable before she left, and sheÂd pay for it big time when she came home. So, again, Jill asked herself, ÂWas it worth the fight?ÂŽWe can learn a lot about ourselves when we step back to consider how we address highly charged, stressful events. As the above vignette demonstrates, so many of us have great difficulty, not only understanding our angry feelings, but also clarifying an effective means of expressing ourselves. We may be too frightened of the consequences to speak up about what matters to us, or to take care of our emotional needs. In her best-selling work, ÂThe Dance of Anger,ÂŽ noted family therapist Dr. Harriet Lerner urges us to consider the way we navigate our most important relationships when we are hurt, angry or frustrated. She states: ÂAnger is a signal, and one worth listening to. Our anger may be a message that we are being hurt, that our rights are being violated, that our needs or wants are not being adequately met, or simply that something is not right. Our anger may tell us that we are not addressing an important emotional issue in our lives, or that too much of our self Â„ our beliefs, values, desires, or ambitions Â„ is being compromised in a relationship. Our anger may be a signal that we are doing more and giving more than we can comfortably do or give. Or our anger may warn us that others are doing too much for us, at the expense of our own competence and growth.ÂŽMany of us were raised in environments that discouraged our speaking up or voicing dissent. We were rewarded for Ânot making wavesÂŽ and prided ourselves on the virtue of doing for others, even if we paid a huge personal price. However, those of us who noisily vented outrage often suffered comparable consequences.Finding an effective middle ground-one where we take pride in addressing our most important feelings, but doing so in a way that will effectively be heard by others Â„ requires patience, and the courage to be self-reflective. ItÂs easy to go to the place of blaming others. In the example ab ove, had J ill taken the stance of solely blaming her husband for her predicament (ie. Ken is stubborn, pig-headed, etc. HeÂs unfair to put me in this position.), she would have missed an opportunity to learn more about herself and the way she handles herself in tough situations. Obviously, there are many possibilities to explain JillÂs behavior. Jill might have so little confidence in herself she might truly believe her opinions donÂt matter. She might have understood that sometimes it was far easier for her to either argue vociferously or to sullenly back down, rather than clearly state what was important to her and why (sticking to a firm position in the face of opposi-tion.) Or, she might have discovered she was so worried about the stability of her marriage, she was too afraid of the conse-quences of rocking the boat. Taking the time, and self-care to understand herself and to make changes at her own pace requires a certain amount of courage. Of course, even though WEÂVE decided itÂs time to make changes in our relationships, thereÂs no guarantee our loved ones will be appreciative and accepting of our new growth. On the contrary, we may have unwittingly introduced a whole new dimension of anxiety to our relationships by chang-ing the established rules. Our loved ones may understandably feel threat-ened or resentful and push back, hoping to return to the status quo. As Lerner, emphasizes, over and over, we should take time and care, when we make rela-tionship changes. Giving ourselves, and our partners, the necessary patience and attention to absorb the impact can be enormously gratifying. Q Â„ The example at the beginning is fiction.

Answer: The nose is the central part of the face and is usually the first thing peopleÂ’s eyes are drawn to when they look at someone. If a person feels their nose is too large, they can choose to have a rhinoplasty, which is a surgical correction to reduce the size of the nose and make its appearance more in line with the rest of their facial features. Common features that are refined and corrected with a rhinoplasty include: a large bump on the bridge, a tip that is rounded and wide and a deviated nose. During your consultation, we will discuss and prioritize the features which you are unhappy with. After examining your nose, I can better explain how those features can be corrected with surgery. The most common changes are to make the bridge of the nose flat, rotate and narrow the tip and straighten the nose. Surgery takes 2-3 hours and afterwards, you will have a cast on your nose for a week. Expect to have swelling which will gradually reduce with time and a small incision between your nostrils which will heal to where it is barely noticeable. As the swelling goes down, the end result will be a nose that better fits your other facial features. When these proportions are restored, overall facial attractiveness in enhanced. To see if a rhinoplasty is right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

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 hate my smile, but IÂ’m too afraid to go to the dentist. I have severe anxiety every time I think about it. What can I do? Answer: If you hate your smile and hate the dentist at the same time, then sedation dentistry is your ticket to a beautiful healthy smile and oral health. Sedation dentistry is the administration of a sedative medication to produce a state of calmness, drowsiness, or relaxation so you wonÂ’t experience stress during treatment. The degree of your anxiety will determine the type of sedation you receive. If you desire something to take the edge off, oral sedation may be something you may consider. Many dentists offer this level of sedation. It involves taking 1 or 2 seda-tive pills before treatment which will simply relax you. If you are a true dental-phobe then IV sedation is what you need. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified IV Sedation Dentist and involves administering medication intravenously. The medications can be slowly adjusted, or titrated to achieve and maintain a deeper state of sedation so that you can undergo procedures with abso-lutely no memory whatsoever. Analgesics or pain killers can also be administered through the IV line, so you should experience abso-lutely no discomfort. Local anesthetic is still always administered to keep the area numb, but you wonÂ’t know or feel you had any injections. The administration of IV medica-tions for your appointment will allow you to undergo more extensive dental procedures such as cosmetic smile makeovers, dental implant surgery, dental reconstruction or cos-metic crowns without the stress or memoryof the procedures.

Q Groups partner to provide scooters to those in need SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Clinics Can Help and Special Needs Group Inc. recently partnered to donate four $2,500 mobility scooters to help four individuals in Palm Beach County with limited mobility achieve a greater quality of life. Clinics Can Help identified four individuals in need (Rita Echo, 62; Annette Hill, 79; Frances Kelly, 79; and Lynda Wynds, 67), and Special Needs Group donated scooters to improve their mobility. Clinics Can Help is Palm Beach CountyÂs only charity that recycles gen-tly used medical equipment and sup-plies for those in need. Dania Beach-based Special Needs Group Inc. is the leading global provider of special-needs medical equipment rentals. The first to receive a scooter was Ms. Echo, a 62-year-old woman with severe spinal stenosis. After two back surger-ies and osteoarthritis to her legs and pelvis, she has very limited mobility and endurance. The scooter will allow her to walk her dog and visit her father, who lives a few blocks away. The additional three mobility scooters went to Ms. Wynds, a 67-year-old woman who recently had a stroke that left her extremely weak on one side of her body; Ms. Hill, a 79-year-old woman with osteoarthritis and diabetic neu-ropathy; and Ms. Kelly, a 79-year-old woman with spinal stenosis and osteo-arthritis in her legs and knees. ÂWhen we heard about the situations of these four individuals, we knew that we were the perfect organization to help them,ÂŽ Andrew J. Garnett, presi-dent and CEO of Special Needs Group, said in a prepared statement. ÂOur mis-sion is to deliver an accessible world, and that includes helping those right in our own area.ÂŽ Owen OÂNeill, executive director of Clinics Can Help, added: ÂFor these people, this isnÂt just about a piece of equipment, it is a way to enhance their lives. These mobility scooters mean that they can go outside, be more mobile, and have an overall better quality of life.ÂŽ To learn more about this donation, or more about how these organizations may be able to help, visit specialneeds-group.com or (800) 513-4515, or clinics-canhelp.org or (561) 640-2995.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY The tax man cometh, and cometh, and comethThe final filing deadline for taxes was on Oct. 1, but for many high-income fil-ers, there is no rest for the tax weary. Taxes remain very much on their minds and, after reading this column, might be elevated to the top priority concern. U.S. taxpayers in upper income brackets are feeling the effects of increased levels of taxation and they rightly worry that tax increases and new levies are not over. The issue of taxation has become a prominent global discussion, so much so, that the International Monetary Fund just released a report titled ÂTaxing Times.ÂŽ The IMF considers global taxation to be within the purview of its pontificating, as it is concerned about the worldÂs mon-etary and debt conditions. Taxation is thought by many political leaders to be the solution to their prob-lem; i.e., government budget deficits can be lessened and existing high levels of world government debt relative to GDP can be lowered through a variety of taxation measures. (Of course, those operating from the perspective that government spending must be cur-tailed do not consider taxation to be the cure; they consider cut-backs in government spending to be the solution.) The reality is that many advanced countries (including the U.S.) provide some form of government subsidy or sup-port to more than 50 percent of their citizens and, in effect, have created a majority vot-ing constituency that is aligned with largesse in government spending. The voting minority is aligned with cutbacks. These voting majorities have helped create a worldwide group-think about taxation, as evidenced in the IMFÂs report. Per the IMF report, advanced economies of the world share a common prob-lem: ÂÂƒthe aver-age gross debt ratio in advanced economies is expected to stabilize at slight-ly below 110 percent of GDP Â„ some 35 percentage points above its 2007 levelÂƒ Maintaining public debt at these historic peaks would leave advanced economies exposed to confidence shocks and rollover risks and hampers potential growth. Thus, it remains important to lower public debt, although it will inevi-tably be a slow process.ÂŽ So, per the IMF, the governments will move to capture more tax revenue dol-lars. How will it be done? The report reviews the many varied forms of taxation and looks at their effects on long-term growth. The concern is quite simple: taxation forms that satisfy an immediate need for funds might negative-ly impact a countryÂs GDP growth (and therefore diminish future tax receipts that are tied to economic activity). In laymanÂs terms, corporate taxation should be the last form of taxation to be toyed with (as increases and con-stant changing of corporate tax rules discour-ages corporate capital investment/forma-tion.) In IMF jargon: ÂThe effects of the tax mix on long-term growth have been widely studied. The literature suggests that corporate income taxes have the most negative effect, followed by labor income taxes, then consumption taxes, and finally property taxes. In line with this Âgrowth hierarchy,ÂŽ a recent IMF work finds, for a wide set of countries, that a revenue-neutral rebalancing that reduces income taxes while increasing consumption and property taxes is associated with faster long-term growth (Acosta-Ormaeche and Yoo, 2012).ÂŽ However, the IMF does suggest that the days of multinational corporate tax evasion are (and should be) numbered. ÂFor the United States (where the issue has been most closely studied) an upper estimate of the loss from tax planning by multinationals is about US $60 billion each year Â„ about one-quarter of all revenue from the cor-porate income tax (Gravelle, 2013).ÂŽ Some of the ÂcoolestÂŽ companies have led the multinational pack by creating Âmind-boggling complexityÂŽ to evade taxes. ÂGoogle, Starbucks, and other household names have famously managed to pay very little corporate taxÂŽ but the issue is Âlikely an even greater concern for developing countries, typically more reliant on corporate tax receipts.ÂŽ The IMF report, in its search for more taxation-grab ideas, poses the question: are the wealthy Âa revenue source that could be tapped more?ÂŽ The IMF expands the U.S. administrationÂs Âincrease tax-ation on the wealthy argumentÂŽ from income taxation into asset taxation. The IMF rationale is: ÂHousehold wealth is very unequally distributed Â„ even more so than income. In advanced economies, the top 10 percent own, on average, more than half of the wealth (up to 75 percent in the United States). It is, arguably, a better indicator of ability to pay than annual income Â„ and indeed taxes on wealth and transfers have historically been a major source of revenue. Now, however, they yield very little Â„ slightly fewer than 2 percent of GDP on average in the OECD.ÂŽ Possibly the most frightening part is the IMF reportÂs endingÂƒ which proposed the merits of a special, onetime tax on the very wealthy. The very wealthy should take heed that the worst might possibly be yet to come, as a capital levy is already being suggested and discussed by world leaders.

The store features an enhanced and varied collection of Jimmy Choo shoes, hand-bags, small leather goods, soft accesso-ries, belts, sunglasses and fashions in a luxurious setting. Reflective of the archi-tectural glamour of a 1940s boutique, the Palm Beach Gardens storeÂs interior has decorative elements that include lush, tufted seating, mirrored tables and niches upholstered in reflective finishes. LOFT, the hip, young extension of the Ann Taylor brand, recently renovated its store and reopened in the same location (on the lower level near Nordstrom), with a chic, contemporary update and expanded space that now offers 5,000 square feet of retail shopping. The LOFT has developed its own brand, offering more relaxed and casual fashions for work and home. Look for the latest col-ors and styles in dresses, separates, suits and accessories in versatile, feminine and affordable styles, along with unexpected details. Celebrating its 20-year anniversary, Anthropologie moved its store to the upper level near Nordstrom, creating 9,048 square feet designed around its curated mix of clothing, accessories, home goods, gifts and dcor items. Look for new globally sourced products, fur-niture, rugs, lighting, found objects, wall dcor and womenÂs apparel. Everything But Water, a womenÂs specialty swimwear retailer, joined the list of merchants this year. The store sets the mood in its 1,566-square-foot space with an atmosphere of gray driftwood slats on the exterior, cabana curtain accents in the fitting area, two bikini bars, and over-sized, scene-setting photography from recent fashion shoots. The store features an assortment of bikinis, separates, one-pieces, D+ cup sizes, sundresses, cover-ups, hats, jewelry, sandals and more. LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Â„ an upbeat, British brand of ethical and innovative bath, body, skin and hair care Â„ is soon to be making its debut at The Gardens Mall. LUSHÂs 1,046-square-foot space will display innovative products made out of fresh, organic fruits and veg-etables, and the finest essential oils and ingredients that are ethically and sustain-ably procured from around the world. The eco-friendly, in-store design includes a cozy kitchen table where customers can sit and discuss their skin and hair needs with an expert consultant. Sportswear and lifestyle brand designer Robert Graham is set to open before the holidays in a 1,080-square-foot space. The store will carry the full range of the Robert Graham collection, including menswear and womenÂs wear, premium denim, furnishings, accessories and out-erwear. The brandÂs loyal consumer fol-lowing collects pieces because of the distinctive design elements, bold prints and craftsmanship. The new ÂimaginedÂŽ store design by global entertainment retailer, Build-A-Bear, reopened in its same location on Oct. 18. Elements of the new interior design format merge the love of teddy bears with the best of technology to provide a richer, more interactive expe-rience for guests. Through computer-ized platforms, guests can personalize the bear-making process and have a dif-ferent experience each time they visit. Furry friends can choose from hundreds of ÂfurbulousÂŽ fashion outfits and acces-sories, or suit up in their favorite MLB, NFL, NHL, and NASCAR gear, or even live their fantasy as a Disney character or Harley-Davidson biker. Kate Spade has established a global lifestyle brand synonymous with style, crisp color and playful sensibilities in 20 years. The powerhouse retailer is set to open a new store, offering 2,552 square feet of inspiring handbags, clothing, jewelry, shoes, eyewear, fragrances, bed-ding, tabletops and gifts, which personify the hallmark of curiosity and color that shapes all that is Kate Spade. Scheduled to open before the holiday season, the new merchant will be on the upper level near Saks Fifth Avenue. The Gardens Mall is one mile east of I-95 on PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens.

Eliminate the presumption of federal commitments in support of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and suddenly, it is your family and your community that are at risk. Despite the down-play of the effects of the government shutdown, the economic pain was widespread and genuine. Many nonprofit and community agencies suffered casualties, includ-ing services for the elderly; pre-school programs for children; hot meals for shut-ins; public services provided by a myriad of federal agencies; a finan-cial hit to our nationÂs network of first responders; lost paydays for millions; and blocked access to our national parks Â„ and thatÂs just a short list. Job losses and furloughs have hit employees in many nonprofit and pub-licly funded organizations, too. This generated demand for yet more support from among nonprofits and agencies to bridge the gaps created by the shut-down. Adding insult to injury, recipients of federal funds experienced delays or stop payments reimbursing them for the social services they rendered nonethe-less. Adding a government shutdown on top of the nationÂs economic miseries wasnÂt helpful. The Great Recession left a mark of ash on almost all communi-ties. South Florida was especially hard hit. Yet state policymakers are alive and well who believe only a big dose of bitter austerity will make our nationÂs cheeks rosy again. The sequestration went into effect by default that made $1.2 trillion in indiscriminate, across-the-board cuts to federal spending, beginning this year and through 2021, split between domes-tic and defense spending. Sequestration was supposed to be so obnoxious to both political parties that no possibility existed it would actually pass. You know the rest. Even before sequestration, the Great Recession walloped millions of families, creating a dramatic spike in demand for services among our most vulner-able citizens. Now weÂve started a new chapter in this tortured story. The most recent deal to end Congressional grid-lock included an additional $91 billion in sequestration cuts that will go into effect in January 2014. Keep in mind that cuts in FY013 already total $64 billion and another $250 billion in budget cuts at state levels have occurred over the last four years. Only a dangerously out-of-control Edward Scissorhands could manage so much whacking in so short a time. The slow hemorrhage of conse-quences is starting to spread out across the country. Many policy makers presume nonprofits working to alleviate and end hunger, homelessness, and poverty are the Plan ÂBÂŽ for the social safety net that the federal government in majority provides. There are two problems with that assumption: The government shut-down and sequestration are undermin-ing the capacity of nonprofits to sustain services and programs; and a sharp increase in and growing demand for services is occurring as funding sources have declined. Experts on the charitable sector warn, ÂIf allowed to continue, the sequestration cuts will hurt the work of nearly every charitable nonprofit in America Â… even nonprofits that do not receive any direct government funding.ÂŽ While Congress fiddled, donors made donations or loans to nonprofits in financial crisis. Despite their good intentions and generosity, some think it the wrong signal for the charita-ble sector to be sending to lawmakers. Though private giving has traditionally supported government-funded social services, research shows charities cre-ated to subsidize government programs are increasing faster than the charitable sector overall. Legislators are thinking charities can replace the role of govern-ment in caring for the nationÂs vulner-able. It is hard to predict where this trajectory will lead but there are signs philanthropy is not waiting on the side-lines to see how it all turns out. Robert Gallucci, President of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, recently issued a call for action in an op-ed saying, ÂItÂs time for foundations to do more to help create a political system that is credible, transparent, and responsive to the needs of ordinary people.ÂŽ He adds, when the process of governance is dysfunctional, grant-makers gets less for their money and innovative solutions die on the vine in the absence of supportive public policy. The charitable sector is neces-sarily vested in the ways and means to achieve GallucciÂs democratic vision of governance; because, as my pastor used to say, without vision, the people perish.

Q Stephanie Pew honored for MacArthur Beach volunteer work SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The president of the Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park, Stephanie Pew, has earned the PresidentÂs Call to Service Award for her more than 4,100 volun-teer hours.

Elected to the board of directors in October 2006, Ms. Pew served on the Cul-tivation & Events Committee of the Capital Campaign Cabinet and became committee chair in August 2007.

This event was a huge success under Ms. PewÂs guidance, with record attendance of over 4,800 families. Ms. Pew was also elected vice president of the board and continued as the chair of the Cultivation and Events Committee where she coordinated fundraising events benefitting the Endowment Campaign including Bark in the Park, Bob Milne Piano Concert, a second Blizzard on the Beach and the first Shop ÂTil You Drop event.

The early-1900Âs jack-oÂ-lan-tern was made of metal. Within a few years, jack-oÂ-lanterns were being made of pressed paper with thin paper inserts creating see-through eyes, nose and mouth. That way, a candle inside the paper pumpkin could light a path. But it was dangerous to walk and run with a lit candle in a flam-mable con-tainer. By the 1920s, special Halloween lamp-shades were made for display in a front window. You also could buy flat-sided lanterns made in a Âstained-glassÂŽ style with black cardboard strips and translu-cent orange paper. These lanterns were made in Germany and the United States until the 1940s. But beware Â„ some were reproduced in the 1990s. Old lanterns usually have round, indented candleholders on the bottom; most reproductions have flat bottoms. A very famous 12-panel lantern was made in Germany in the 1920s and sold was by Beistle, an important American company that sold (and still sells) holiday decora-tions. A vintage example sells for more than $500 today. One recently offered at Morphy Auctions had a presale estimate of $400 to $600. Q: My mother left me a collection of Kewpie dolls, all in good condition. Please tell me something about them. IÂm in my 70s now and probably will give them to my granddaughters rather than sell them. But IÂd like to know if theyÂre valuable. A: Artist Rose OÂNeill (1874-1944) drew the first Kewpies, little naked, winged, Cupidlike characters, for a LadiesÂ Home Journal story that ran in 1909. Within two years, OÂNeillÂs drawings were turned into 3-D designs for Kewpie dolls and figurines. They were made with small blue wings and a red heart as a mark. The dolls were an immediate success, and several companies made Kewpies and Kewpie-related products. Kewpie dolls still are being made. They can be found in bisque, celluloid, composition or hard plastic. Collectors love Kewpies and will pay hundreds, or even thousands, for rare old figurines and dolls. Q: I have a large Wagner Ware fry pan with cover. It reads ÂMagnalite No. 4569.ÂŽ The pan is 10 inches wide and 3 inches deep. IÂm wondering what it might be worth. A: Your fry pan is a chicken fryer. Wagner Manufacturing Co. was founded in Sidney, Ohio, in 1891. After several chang-es in ownership, the company closed in 1999. Wagner made Magnalite, a cast aluminum cookware, from 1934 to 1999. The value of your fry pan depends on condition. The average price is under $20. Q: We own an old barber chair with a metal label that reads, ÂKoken Com-panies, Manufacturers, St. Louis, U.S.A.ÂŽ How do you suggest we sell it? A: Ernest Koken, a German immigrant, was selling shaving mugs in St. Louis by 1874, when he was 19 years old. By the 1880s, he was selling barber chairs, and had started filing for patents on improve-ments to the chairs. His patents even-tually included a reclining chair back and a hydraulic lift. His company, Koken BarbersÂ Supply Co., manufactured chairs until it went bankrupt in the 1950s. (A successor, Koken Manufacturing Co., is in business today; it bought the original companyÂs assets.) Antique Koken barber chairs in excellent shape can sell for thou-sands, but theyÂre not easy to transport. So it would be better to sell your chair locally via a trade-paper ad, Craigslist or a local shop or auction. Q: My husband and I found a very old pen-and-ink calligraphic drawing of a bird. It was stuck inside an old family Bible. The Bible dates back to the early 1800s, and the signed drawing is 7 by 8 inches. The bird in the center of the drawing is surrounded by lots of flour-ishes and doodads. I understand this type of drawing was done by students studying calligraphy back then. Can you give us an idea of value? A: The art of calligraphy flourished in the United States during the 19th century. Elegant penmanship was a sign of refine-ment and was taught in private academies and writing classes. Drawings like yours were done with quills or steel pens, and typically have repeated cursive flourishes that also could be used in fancy handwrit-ing. If your drawing is original, it could sell for $50 into the low hundreds. Tip: Paintings displayed in a dining room often are splattered with food and sometimes even pick up food odors. Have an oil painting professionally cleaned. Q Â„Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer as many questions as possible through the column.

ItÂs not only a mantra, itÂs good busi-ness. Simon plays make the audience happy, they make money, so it makes sense. The hard part, of course, is doing Neil Simon well. Simon plays come with some baggage, because most of the audience is old enough to have either seen past productions or the movies based on the plays. There is always the risk of comparison from the audience, or copycat performances from the cast. The Plaza Theatre in Manalapan does not fall into that trap. They do Neil Simon very, very well. Earlier this year the Plaza produced a fine production of SimonÂs ÂChapter Two,ÂŽ and now theyÂve raised the Simon bar with their current show, ÂBrighton Beach Mem-oirs.ÂŽ This is the second production of Neil SimonÂs autobiographical play in South Florida this year; Broward Stage Door Theatre in Coral Springs boasted a fine production of the play this past sum-mer. ItÂs not surprising that ÂBrighton Beach MemoirsÂŽ is that popular. Aside from the durability and brand name that is Neil Simon, this is a funny play with believable characters that manages to warm the heart without manipulating it. ÂBrighton Beach MemoirsÂŽ is the first play in whatÂs known as SimonÂs ÂEugene TrilogyÂŽ, three plays that follow his alter ego Eugene Jerome. ÂBrigh-ton Beach MemoirsÂŽ was followed by ÂBiloxi Blues,ÂŽ in which Eugene enters Plaza cast delivers satisfying Simon BY MARY DAMIANOSpecial to Florida Weekly THEATER REVIEW CuisineTiger WoodsÂ’ former chef has opened Kitchen.

A model-beautiful blonde greeted me at the door and asked if I was there for the party. She pointed me toward an elevator at the back of the store, and as I made my way to the second floor I won-dered which mutual friends would be at the event. But as the doors slid open and I stepped into the dazzling crowd, I quickly realized: none of them. A pass-ing waiter offered me a glass of wine, and I must have given him a desperate look because he smiled encouragingly before disappearing into the throng. Glass in hand, I lodged myself against the back wall, practically in the corner, trying to look as nonchalant as I could. My blood pressure ratcheted up as more people arrived, each lovelier than the last, and it became obvious that no one I knew would be coming. I was thoroughly on my own.My wine almost finished, the book signing still not started, I noticed someone next to me looking equally lost. He thumbed through his phone in that desperate way people have when theyÂre at a party without a plus-one. I weighed the awkwardness of introduc-ing myself against the shame of stand-ing there alone for another half-hour. Finally, I gathered my courage. ÂSo, do you know anyone at this party?ÂŽ I said. The man laughed. ÂMy friend is coming, but he's running late.ÂŽ I started to turn away, feeling foolish, but he smiled and introduced himself. I smiled back and we started chatting. Before long we were comparing favor-ite books and TV shows. He had a good sense of humor and he laughed at my jokes. I actually thought, Maybe this meeting-new-people thing is not so bad. But just as we settled into an easy conversational rhythm, his plus-one showed up. The second man worked in finance; they knew each other from a networking group. Not friends, exactly, but professional acquaintances. The financier let me know that they were there to network, not meet women. ÂWell, weÂre going to walk around,ÂŽ he said. I should have known better. Maybe if I were used to the social scene, I would have had a feel for these things. Maybe I would have known what a polite brush-off looks like. But the first man had been so nice and such a good social anchor at that strained party, that when he smiled and said I should join them, I did. They stopped in an alcove and the two men grabbed more drinks. The financier talked business and it slow-ly dawned on me that I should have already made an exit. Before I could summon just what to say, the financier stuck out a fleshy hand. ÂWell,ÂŽ he said, Âit was nice meeting you. Take care.ÂŽ I knew I had been dismissed even as I turned away. The moment stung and I silently kicked myself. Had I really thought it would be that easy? Q artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com
FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 B3 Drama club to produce two performances of Â“Our TownÂ” SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The 75th anniversary of Thornton Wilder Âs ÂOur TownÂŽ is cause for celebration. And the Eissey Campus Drama Club of Palm Beach State College will give free presentations of the 1938 play at 8 p.m. on Nov. 21-23 at the Eissey Campus Theatre at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens. The student cast and crew is producing this show as a service to the stu-dents and community, so admission is free (tickets not required). This timeless drama of life in the mythical village of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire has become an Ameri-can classic with universal appeal. Famed American playwright Edward Albee has called ÂOur TownÂŽ the fin-est play ever written by an American. Thornton Wilder's most frequently performed play, Our Town first opened on Broadway in 1938 to wide acclaim and won the Pulitzer Prize. ÂOur TownÂŽ explores the relationship between two young Grover's Corners neighbors, George Gibbs and Emily Webb, whose childhood friend-ship blossoms into romance, and then culminates in marriage. When Emily loses her life in childbirth, the circle of life portrayed in each of the three acts of Our Town Â„ growing up, adulthood, and death Â„ is fully realized. The student cast will include Rusty Griffin as George Gibbs; Hope Tiffany as Emily Webb; Kristen Davis as Mrs. Webb; Thomas Jackson as Mr. Webb; Joslyn Taylor as Mrs. Gibbs; Kevin Taylor as Dr. Gibbs; Amy Kovalsky as Rebecca Gibbs; Alex Holland as Simon Stimson and Jim McConville as the stage manager. The Palm Beach State College Eissey Campus Drama Club brings together students who share an interest in the-ater and performing arts. The club pro-motes learning about theater through activities and productions that enhance the educational goals of the collegeÂs theater appreciation courses. Member-ship is open to all students currently enrolled at the Palm Beach State Eissey Campus. Plans for next semester include the production of the ÂThe FantastiksÂŽ Â„ the longest-playing, off-Broadway musical hit Â„ to be presented at the Eissey Campus Theatre March 20-22, 2014. For more information about the Palm Beach State College Eissey Campus Drama Club, call John F. Sabo, director and adviser, at 785-7487. Q Marinelife Center gets its freak on for TurtleWeen festivities SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Northern Palm Beach CountyÂs hub for sea turtle rescue and research will have a haunted house. Birds of prey also will be hanging out near a mad scientistÂs lab. Act up, and you could be sent to Âjail.ÂŽ Who knew the Loggerhead Marinelife Center could be such a scary place?

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSome work in bursts of manic energy for hours on end, while others, their time eaten up by a day job or family obliga-tions, resort to stealing odd hours here and there. Writer Mason Currey considers himself a morning person because he does his most productive work before lunch-time. But a few years ago, when he had a Monday deadline, he went into his office at Metropolis magazine on a Sunday after-noon Âto try to knock it out,ÂŽ as he puts it. ÂBut I ran into this problem: when I try to write in the after-noon, I canÂt focus.ÂŽ As part procrastination, part miseryloves-company, he began searching on the Internet for stories of writers who could only work in the morning. ÂI found these great stories,ÂŽ he says. ÂIÂm always fascinated by stories of how other writers work, other artists.ÂŽSomeone should put that on a blog, he thought. And because one didnÂt already exist, he created one, calling it Daily Routines. (As for his deadline story, he wound up writing it that Monday morning, at the last minute.) Mr. Currey kept adding stories of artistsÂ daily routines to his blog as he ran across them. Sometimes people sent stories to him. He wrote about artists, writers, architects, painters, composers, performance artists, poets, philosophers. ÂI was thinking of routines, things people do every day, habits that arenÂt glam-orous, but the unconscious acts that you repeat day after day that add up to letting you create something worthwhile,ÂŽ he explains. For a while, his readership was limited to his family, friends and co-workers. But when an editor at Slate.com asked readers to submit accounts about their morning routines, Mr. Currey wrote in about his blog. The subsequent online story then linked to it, sending thousands of new readers to his site. Among them was an agent who thought Daily Routines would make a great book. Mr. Currey wrote a proposal and the agent wrangled him a book contract. He let the blog go dormant (ÂThe editors wanted me to save the best stuff for the book,ÂŽ he says) and starting working on the book, while still working as an editor at Metropo-lis. (He has since quit and moved across the country to Los Ange-les, where he free-lances for the online magazine core77.) Ironically, he found his own daily rou-tine changing. Before working on the book, heÂd typically get up early only if there was an emergency or if it was crunch time at work. ÂOnce I had the book (deal), I realized that if I wanted to get it done, IÂd have to get up early every day,ÂŽ he says. ÂIf you have some time of day that is your best period, take advantage of that and arrange your schedule.ÂŽ So heÂd get up at 5:30 every morning, brush his teeth, make a cup of coffee and sit down and work on his book for a cou-ple hours before going into the magazine office for his day job. As he notes in his bookÂs introduction: ÂThe word (routine) con-notes ordinariness, or even lack of thought; to follow a routine is to be on autopilot. But oneÂs daily routine is also a choice, or a whole series of choices. In the right hands it can be a finely calibrated mechanism for taking advantage of a range of limited resources: time (the most limited resource of all) as well as willpower, self-discipline, opti-mism. A solid routine fosters a well-worn groove for oneÂs mental energies and helps stave off the tyr-anny of moods.ÂŽ As he learned about other art-istsÂ habits in published interviews, biographies and personal journals as well as through conduct-ing his own interviews, he learned that many of them did things to prevent dis-tractions. If work was not going well, the painter NC Wyeth would tape a piece of cardboard to the side of his glasses in order not to be distracted by the view outside his studio window. Maya Angelou wrote in hotel or motel rooms almost as bare as a monkÂs cell. For the longest time, the artist Joseph Cornell would assemble his boxes on his motherÂs kitchen table, after everyone had gone to bed. Novelist Richard Wright would write on a park bench, even in the rain. Some writers could only work while in bed. Truman Capote wrote while horizontal. ÂI canÂt think unless IÂm lying down, either in bed or stretched out on a couch and with a cigarette and coffee handy,ÂŽ Mr. Currey quotes him saying in a Paris Review interview. Edith Sitwell could also only write while in bed. (Mr. Currey writes: ÂLiter-ary legend has it that Sitwell used to lie in an open coffin for a while before she began her dayÂs work; this foretaste of the grave was supposed to inspire her macabre fiction and poetry. The tale is probably false.ÂŽ) Thomas Wolfe wrote while standing up; at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, he used the top of the refrigerator as his desk. Ernest Hemingway also wrote while standing, Âfacing a chest-high bookcase with a type-writer on top, and on top of that a wooden reading board. First drafts were com-posed in pencil on onionskin typewriter paper laid slantwise across the board; when the work was going well Heming-way would remove the board and shift to the typewriter,ÂŽ Mr. Currey writes. (He also writes that contrary to popular liter-ary legend, Mr. Hemingway did not begin every writing session by sharpening 20 No. 2 pencils. Haruki Murikami wakes at 4 a.m. and writes for five or six hours; Ann Beattie finds she writes best at night. William Styron would sleep until noon and sit down at his typewriter at 4 p.m. ÂDaily Rituals,ÂŽ released in late April, has been so successful that it was in its fifth printing five months later. Review-ers tend to focus on the more outrageous behavior of the artists Mr. Currey writes about, such as those who would start the day off with a glass of whiskey. ÂI think that people latch onto these sort of outlandish and interesting behav-iors, understandably,ÂŽ he says. But thatÂs not the focus of his book, he adds. ÂItÂs a little misleading when we talk about the craziest things. Even the people who had bizarre habits still had the more mundane side of their routine, where they sat down and worked in spite of their addictions and obligations.ÂŽ While many artists would jumpstart themselves with coffee, alcohol or drugs, many would also break for naps or take regular walks. ÂI was amazed by how many long walks there are (in the book),ÂŽ Mr. Currey says. ÂPeople trying to build the perfect routine would be sure to squeeze in a walk (as part of it.)ÂŽ Building down time into a schedule is important, many said, because they found that some of their best ideas would come when they temporarily stepped away from the work. ÂI procrastinate just the right amount,ÂŽ the artist Maira Kalman told Mr. Cur-rey. ÂThere are things which help me get in the mood to work. Cleaning for one. Ironing is great. Taking a walk is always inspiring. Because my work is often based on what I see, I am happy to keep col-lecting and changing images until the last moment.ÂŽ One recurring theme in the book is that you shouldnÂt wait for inspiration to do your creative work. ÂOver and over again people from different creative disciplines said that if they waited for inspiration to strike, they wouldnÂt do anything,ÂŽ Mr. Currey says. ÂWork every day, donÂt wait for inspiration to strike. Out of that process, youÂll get ideas, and youÂll get inspira-tion. But you canÂt wait for it.ÂŽ The painter Chuck Close told him: ÂInspiration is for ama-teurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work.ÂŽ Another theme that comes out of the book is that even the masters of different creative disciplines struggle on a daily basis to do quality work. ÂThatÂs kind of encouraging and depressing,ÂŽ Mr. Currey says. ÂFor those of us who are trying to write or do other creative work, it is a struggle Âƒ People have said that the writing never gets eas-ier, but you learn to trust in the process, you learn to break through.ÂŽ Those searching for a magic formula in ÂDaily RoutinesÂŽ are bound to be disap-pointed. ÂPeople are asking, whatÂs the takeaway? WhatÂs the perfect daily routine or the combination of materials and setting and time management that will let me be a great creative artist?ÂŽ Mr. Currey says. ÂThere is no magic formula. No one should be surprised. Everyone has to fig-ure out their own combination of creative habits and rituals that work for them.ÂŽ Q ARTISTSFrom page 1 CURREY STATE ARCHIVES OF FLORIDA, FLORIDA MEMORYErnest Hemingway, above, wrote while standing, Â“facing a chest-high bookcase with a typewriter on top, and on top of that a wooden reading board,Â” Mr. Cur-rey writes.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 B5 in the know AUSTIN Mason CurreyÂ’s book, Â“Daily Ritu-als: How Artists Work,Â” piqued our curiosity about the creative routines of South Florida artists. So we asked a few of them. HereÂ’s what they had to say. Carolyn Austin,Glass artist>>What inspires you to work on your art? My clients inspire me most. When they come into my studio to commission my work they are so excited at the idea of bringing their glass to life with my etchings. I am so thrilled to have them so pleased to display my works in their homes as well as return for more and refer me to others. >>Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? I like to get to know my clientsÂ’ likes and dislikes as well as visit the home to get a feel for the environment that I will be creating in. When I am creating pieces for my own pleasure I have to have a clean studio and gallery to be able to Â“think,Â” moving artwork around and washing the oors gives me a clean slate in my mind and soul to enable me to create.>>When do you typically work? I get a lot done in the early morning as far as prepping for my day, then it is usually a 9-5 or so day.>>When do you know itÂ’s time to put the work away? When my body can physically do no more; most of my work is commissioned so I have deadlines but I do have to go home and enjoy my family and this wonderful life I am so blessed to be a part of.John DeMatteo,Musician, member of the band Making Faces>>What inspires you to work on your music? God, moods, emotions, stress relief, stories, reaching people in a positive way. Grooves inspire songs too. Sometimes itÂ’s laying down the rhythm and chords before writ-ing lyrics. Other times, itÂ’s the lyrics and melody rst, then gure out a groove to go with it. Â“Ironic therapyÂ” happens sometimes too...if IÂ’m depressed, annoyed or angry I seem to write more upbeat happy stuff in attempt to Â“pull me outta my funk.Â”>>Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? IÂ’m constantly thinking of topics to write about. Energy and focus is needed.A few push-ups and pull-ups (not too many) give me enough pep to clear my head. Blueberries and/or seaweed energize me Â— my alternative to caffeine.>>When do you typically work? IÂ’m de nitely nocturnal, a textbook insomniac. I seem to write a lot while watching football with an acoustic guitar, (since ya donÂ’t need the volume on and can multitask). The emotions of football (Dolphin fan) pump me up or depress me very quickly. Watching football is an emotional roller coaster, and when these emotions are tapped ... songs can happen.>>When do you know itÂ’s time to put the work away? When IÂ’m beyond hungry. Sometimes I jam so long and forget to eat, then realize IÂ’m a starving monster.Sarah Nastri,Artist, and Data and Media Coordinator at Lighthouse ArtCenter>>What inspires you to work on your art? My artistic inspiration comes from people, architecture and hap-penings in my life.>>Is there anything special you do to spark that inspira-tion? Looking through old work and materials.>>When do you typically work? I work full time at the Lighthouse ArtCenter so I cannot work on art as much as I would like to. I like being involved in the art world and working with local artists. I try to t art in after work and on the weekends. I like to get together with friends to work on art; we motivate each other.>>When do you know itÂ’s time to put the work away? If I am determined to nish something, I donÂ’t stop working until I think it is complete. Sometimes I will leave it and look at it the next day.John Vincent Palozzi,Artist, poet. Vice president of Artists of Palm Beach County and vice president of Poets of the Palm Beaches>>What inspires you to work on your art? Inspiration comes at any time and from every place. The job of an artist is to be open to the communication of inspiration 24/7. I can be inspired when I am meditating or sleeping, or from a picture or story in a magazine or newspaper, or by a situa-tion I observe unfolding in real life. Sometimes I sit quietly at the computer with a blank document on the screen, my ngers on the keyboard, and just start typing the rst words that come into my mind. But a very good way to become inspired is to attend a class or teach a class. I have had no problem writing new poems and creating new collage the past few months because I teach a poetry class and a collage class every Saturday, and I do the same exercises I give my students. >>Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? Reading other peopleÂ’s poetry and looking at other artistÂ’s work is a special way to become inspired. I am so grateful that we have such a large and diverse group of artists and writers in Palm Beach County, and that I have the opportunity to network, learn from them and call them Â“friend.Â” >>When do you typically work? I do not have a typical time, other than when I am teaching class. Otherwise it can be early in the morning, late at night, or in the middle of the day. Now that I am retired and am not forced to spend eight hours in the middle of the day doing something else, I feel free to pursue art and writing at any time for however long. Typically, tough, once I start a project I am driven to continue on it until it is nished, or I drop!>>When do you know itÂ’s time to put the work away? There comes a time. Sometimes it is not nished, but I know I canÂ’t, or shouldnÂ’t, continue any longer. Sometimes things need to marinate, or the yeast needs time to make the our rise. But the end nally comes when I look at it or read it and say, Â“Yes! I like it!Â” ThereÂ’s a sense of satisfaction that I feel with the work that tells me I am nished.

Q CONTRACT BRIDGECivil War BY STEVE BECKERMany years ago, the late Marty Cohn was playing in a national team-of-four championship and held the South hand. Cohn was well-known for his psychic bids. On top of that, he was the foremost advocate of opening the bidding with a three-card major suit, even with good hands. His partners were barred from raising his opening major-suit bids Â„ unless they were willing to incur his consid-erable wrath Â„ with less than four or, preferably, five-card or better support. When it was CohnÂs turn to bid on this deal Â„ after two passes Â„ he asked his left-hand opponent, Mike Moss, which of his teammates would be holding the South hand at the other table. This was more than a casual question, since Cohn Â„ faced with a wide choice of actions Â„ was hoping to gain a psy-chological advantage by knowing who his opposite number at the other table would be. But Moss didnÂt know, or pretended not to know, who was sitting South at the other table. Furthermore, he con-tended that Cohn was not entitled to this information, and that Cohn could call the tournament director if he want-ed to settle the issue. But Cohn, unwill-ing to pursue the matter further, instead replied, ÂIn that case, IÂll open the bidding with seven hearts.ÂŽ Everyone passed, and Moss led the ace of spades. Cohn ruffed, drew a round of trumps, cashed four club tricks, dis-carding a diamond from dummy, and so made the grand slam. Said Cohn when the hand was over, ÂThe next time I ask a civil question, IÂll PUZZLE ANSWERS

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by weekÂs end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleaguesÂ full support. Now you can refocus your ener-gies on that workplace project. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic AquarianÂs creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by weekÂs end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what youÂve learned secret for now. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curi-osity to know more. Best advice: YouÂll find people more likely to offer informa-tion if youÂre discreet when making your inquiries. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) YouÂre probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be try-ing to goad you into doing something you might later regret. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then itÂs time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. Q BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and youÂre respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 B13 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative Â— one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to Â“get him out of the houseÂ” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. Â“IÂ’ve always been a car guy,Â” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturerÂ’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia Â— dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible Â“AutoMax doesnÂ’t look like your typical car lot,Â” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. Â“It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.Â” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. Â“I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,Â” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. Â“There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldnÂ’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. Â“It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consum-ers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.Â“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,Â” Mr. McLaughlin said. Â“I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealerÂ’s fees.Â” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. Â“I donÂ’t make any money on those cars,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People donÂ’t realize how much work goes into what we do.Â” Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in Â— BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus Â— can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you donÂ’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service. For informa-tion, call 632-9093 Q Not your typical car dealer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTO Bill McLaughlin started Automax in Lake Park. Advertorial This article appeared in Florida Weekly on 10/11/2012. +++ Is it worth $10? YesIn this technological age, the role of the individual has simul-taneously become homo-genized and power-ful. Although millions of social media users around the world keep information superhigh-ways busy with sense-less chatter and pictures of waterskiing squirrels, there are times when select individuals use the power of connectivity for (what they believe is) the greater good. Most famously, Julian Assange pioneered modern citizen journal-ism with his website WikiLeaks, which was founded in 2007 with the purpose of allowing anonymous whistle blowers the opportunity to unveil news leaks and other classified secrets. ÂThe Fifth EstateÂŽ chronicles the first three years of WikiLeaks. Mr. Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a white-haired Internet activist from Australia with a clear disdain for corporate corrup-tion, views himself as a revolutionary, a man of the people and for the people who wants to change the way we consume news. He also believes the public has the right know everything. ÂPrivacy for individuals, transparency for organizations,ÂŽ he virtu-ously tells his right-hand man, Daniel Berg (Daniel Bruhl). With the help of Mr. Berg and other volunteer support staff, WikiLeaks goes to great pains to ensure that the information revealed is truthful. Because the sources are anonymous, tips are submitted to an encrypted online platform and checked for veracity before they are published. Notable WikiLeaks revelations included footage of a military shooting in Iraq, Peruvian politician bribes and Sarah PalinÂs not-so-flattering views on government. Most famously, in 2010 WikiLeaks, in conjunction with The Guardian in London, The New York Times and Der Spiegel in Berlin, released the Afghan War Docu-ments, which chronicled U.S. government mistakes, deaths of civilians, Taliban attacks and more over a six-year period. Not sur-prisingly, the U.S. government wasnÂt happy about the leaks, which threatened national security and the job status of two for-eign attaches (played by Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci) and a White House staffer (Anthony Mackie), among others. Mr. Bruhl, who deserves a supporting actor Oscar nomination for his work in ÂRushÂŽ and is solid here, nicely comple-ments Mr. CumberbatchÂs eccentric Mr. Assange, whoÂs a charismatic megalomaniac with a troubled past. Mr. Cumberbatch is good but not spectacular; after ÂStar Trek: Into Dark-nessÂŽ (he played Khan), his star remains on the rise, but this performance wonÂt elevate him to A-list status. HeÂs close, though. The central question director Bill Condon (ÂKin-seyÂŽ) raises Â„ a question that is as much a sign of modern times as any film this year Â„ is where should the line be drawn between the publicÂs right to know and an organizationÂs right to secrecy? We know how Mr. Assange feel about this, self-touting his efforts to expose all misdeeds as Âsocial justice.ÂŽ On the flip side is the adage that Âindividuals are smart, people are stu-pid,ÂŽ meaning a single person can exercise rational thought and act accordingly when given information, but a herd mentality can sometimes overcome a group of people and chaos ensues. Surely, it is possible that sometimes the government doesnÂt reveal information to the public for a good reason. How you feel about this will depend on your personal and political beliefs; whatÂs notable is that this is one of the few films to bring that question to mind. Mr. CondonÂs only notable misstep comes toward the end of the film, as WikiLeaks is viewed as a vanity project for Mr. Assange rather than grassroots citizen journalism. No matter: By that point, the intention of ÂThe Fifth EstateÂŽ has been made clear, and the result is a message thatÂs more danger-ous than it is damning. Q LATEST FILMSÂ‘The Fifth EstateÂ’ a s e S ( a dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Â“ The Fifth EstateÂ” was adapted by Josh Singer (Â“FringeÂ”) from the books Â“Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the WorldÂ’s Most Dangerous WebsiteÂ” by Daniel Berg and Â“WikiLeaks: Inside Julian AssangeÂ’s War on SecrecyÂ” by David Leigh and Luke Harding. Mr. Assange did not participate in the making of the lm, and given that itÂ’s not exactly a attering depiction of his likeness, itÂ’s doubtful that he would endorse it. CAPSULESCaptain Phillips +++ (Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Michael Chernus) Somali pirates hijack a cargo ship helmed by Capt. Richard Phillips (Mr. Hanks). ItÂs based on a true story, and the performances and execution make this a solid movie that might just be around come Oscar time. Rated PG-13.Gravity ++++ (George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, voice of Ed Harris) After debris destroys their ship, astronauts Kowalsky (Mr. Clooney) and Stone (Ms. Bullock) work together to survive. The visuals are stunning, and a strong lead performance from Ms. Bullock makes this one of the yearÂs best. Rated PG-13.Rush +++ (Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde) The rivalry between For-mula One racecar drivers James Hunt (Mr. Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Mr. Bruhl) is chronicled in director Ron HowardÂs latest. ItÂs a captivating drama thatÂs less about racing and more about how two men who hate each other bring out the best in one another. There are also great performances from the two leads, especially Bruhl. Rated R. Q

Loren Gutentag, Florida Weekly There is a distinctly cheery, vivacious vibe that greets any Blondies visitor. Shawna Gallagher Vega, Jupiter Courier The sisters behind TequestaÂ’s Blondies diner pay a delicous tribute to favorite family recipes.

When we first meet Eugene, itÂs 1937 and heÂs a not-quite 15-year-old Jew-ish kid in Brooklyn whose aspirations include being recruited by the New York Yankees, becoming a professional writer, and seeing a naked girl eat ice cream. Eugene lives a few blocks from the beach in Brooklyn with his parents, Jack and Kate, his older brother Stanley, his widowed Aunt Blanche, his older cousin Nora and younger cousin Laurie. The Jerome household is over-crowded, but they are a family Â„ they fight, they laugh and they get over-involved in each otherÂs lives. Simon casts Eugene as the observer of his familyÂs foibles: StanleyÂs ethi-cal quandary at work, NoraÂs big show business dreams, LaurieÂs health issues, BlancheÂs dependence, JackÂs struggle to make ends meet and KateÂs overbear-ing concern. Nothing much happens Â„ ÂBrighton Beach MemoirsÂŽ is not plot-driven but rather a snapshot of a family whose love and bond will always overcome. The Plaza TheatreÂs production directed by Andy Rogow features true-to-life performances Â„ watching them is like peeking through a neighborÂs window. Jessica K. Peterson and Michael H. Small deliver stunningly authentic per-formances as Kate and Jack. They have chemistry and are completely believable as the matriarch and patriarch of the Jerome family. Their scenes together imply a romance thatÂs still alive, despite the way life has beaten them down. Jacqueline Laggy, who plays Blanche, is also a standout. In LaggyÂs hands, BlancheÂs transformation from mousey widow to confident single mom is natu-ral and quietly triumphant. Eva Gluck plays Laurie with an element of slyness, while Blaze Powers brings the right amount of teenage angst to Nora. Noah Jacobson brings some swagger to Stanley, while Ryan Mahannah delivers the right combination of teen-age wonder and cynicism to Eugene. Unfortunately, Mahannah and Jacobson were still flubbing their lines during the first Saturday matinee, but this aspect of their performances should improve over time. Michael McLainÂs scenic design makes use of every bit of the PlazaÂs stage and underscores the overcrowded Jerome household. Peter LovelloÂs costumes donÂt always feel period-perfect, but for the most part, they work. Even if youÂve seen ÂBrighton Beach Memoirs,ÂŽ the fine performances in this production make this a play worth see-ing again. Q Â„ Brighton Beach Memoirs runs through Oct. 27 at the Plaza Theatre, 262 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan. Performances 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $45.

The ArtistsÂ Lofts, just west of the downtown core, are live/work spaces created by Lake WorthÂs CRA as part of the Arts Renaissance and the rapidly growing arts movement in the city. Twelve diverse artists have taken these spaces and are quickly turning them into a working haven and a tightly knit community. These artists will be displaying their works, performing and introducing themselves to their neighbors and the neighborhood during the Nov. 1 event at the co-op gallery. The synergy created by the influx of talent in the community is palpable. The evening is free and open to the public. A wine and food buffet, music and the mingling of the galleryÂs artists with the Art Loft artists will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Many of these lofts are now occupied by art-producing families as well as singles. Among those either showing their works that evening or performing are drum makers and players, ceramic art-ists, furniture makers, jewelers and fur-niture makers. Greg Karabensh crafts ÂcelestialÂŽ drums with tonal variations displaying exquisite sound. Anna Karabensh per-forms on the drums and teaches drum-ming in the public schools. Curtis Spoerlein and Annie Spoerlein bring fine furniture making and paint-ing to the gallery mix as well as a young and growing family. Andrea Lambrakis will bring an array of her ceramic works.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 B15 Internationally known advertising and stock photographer Nancy Brown judged the exhibition and presented awards for the call-to-artists photog-raphy and digital-imaging exhibition ÂPhoto Now!ÂŽ The awards reception at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta was held on Oct. 17. The exhibition closed Oct. 22. Juror Nancy Brown has been a commercial photographer for more than 30 years, specializing in lifestyle and beauty images for advertising agencies, magazines, design firms, book publish-ers, and pharmaceutical agencies. After working out of her New York studio for 30 years, she now works from Boca Raton. Ms. Brown has published five photography books and was made a Nikon Legend in 2001. Getty Images is her stock agency. The exhibition was sponsored by Bluewater Editions, a fine-art and inno-vative art printing business in Port Salerno. ÂIn the 1970s, Nancy Brown was my hero in an era when not many women were successful in commercial and advertising photography,ÂŽ Lighthouse ArtCenter Executive Director Katie Deits said in a statement. ÂNancy suc-ceeded in New York City competing against Âthe big guysÂ in photography. I had several of her books and used her as a role model.ÂŽ About the exhibition, Ms. Brown said, ÂIt took me quite a long time to decide on the winners because there was so much fine work. I thought that the work in the show was done by mostly professionals and was pleasantly sur-prised to find out that most of the show was done by lay photographers who love photography, as well as advanced photographers. Â ÂThe best-of-show image of Laguna Beach by Melinda Moore made me want to be there and enjoy the beautiful sky and be a part of the activity going on,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe second place image, ÂMoroccan Visit,Â by Carol Erenrich could be a poster for Morocco because of the graphic style of the image and the figure in the photograph gave a mysteri-ous feeling, which says ÂMorocco.ÂÂŽ Howard R. Wexler won first place for ÂJuno BeachÂŽ; Chris Gug was awarded third place for ÂHoly WatersÂŽ; fourth place went to Jason D. Page for ÂAndy WarholÂŽ; and honorable mentions were awarded to Sandy Friedkin for ÂGrand Central Station,ÂŽ Lee Abbott for ÂPeli-canÂŽ and John McManus for ÂFantasy Hot Rod.ÂŽ The Lighthouse ArtCenter is a member-supported nonprofit 501(c)(3) com-munity arts organization, providing excellence in art exhibitions, instruc-tion, education and ArtReach for all ages.

Miss Pontbriand, a junior at Jupiter High School, said the design idea came to her Âreally fastÂŽ with the hardest part deciding what colors to use. She said she hopes to become a graphic artist. She previously won a logo contest for Indian Ridge School in West Palm Beach and placed second in two other area poster contests when she was in the ninth grade. Miss Pontbriand will receive a $100 cash award to be presented at ArtFest and her poster will serve as the signature promo-tional tool for the free outdoor festival at JupiterÂs El Sol Neighborhood Resource Cen-ter, 106 Military Trail. Jupiter Medical Center is the presenting sponsor of ArtFest, which will feature origi-nal oil paintings by local artists, a variety of crafts, live music and entertainment, as well as fully-catered food trucks.

The festivalÂs unifying theme is ÂHarvesting Hope,ÂŽ which is representative of the history that farming and harvest-ing have played in agricultural-based societies like Mexico and Guatemala, and the large footprint agriculture has in Palm Beach County. Other ArtFest features include a chance drawing of a quilt designed by artisans at El Sol, plus face painting for children, live marimba players and salsa dancers. Admission is free and a portion of the proceeds will benefit El Sol, a non-profit charitable organization.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Pulled Chicken Sandwich The Place: Burrito Bros., 1150 W. Indiantown Road, Jupiter; 972-6843. The Price: $8 The Details: We had been to Burrito Bros.Â old location, and we had enjoyed the Mexican fare there. But we were curious about the barbecue the restaurant had added to its menu since its move to the former Son-nyÂs on Indiantown Road. Over the course of a couple of visits we tried a range of menu items and were not disappointed. Pulled pork and chicken sandwiches each had tender meat tossed in a tangy barbecue sauce. Grilled chicken had nice grill marks. And Burrito Bros. got extra points for sides, with crispy fries and a side of French green beans that were crisp-tender. Be sure to check out the sauces. We especially enjoyed the Moroccan barbe-cue sauce, which was loaded with mus-tard seed. Q Â„ Sc ott SimmonsTHE DISH Highlights fromlocal menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINETry some downright scary wines for a ghoulishly fun HalloweenWhile kids focus on candy at Halloween, adult treats should be less sweet and pack a bit more voltage. So do your part and hand out the good-ies to the door-to-door ghouls and goblins who come calling, then break out the grown-up beverages and have a bewitching evening of your own. Finding something suitable to drink on Halloween is pretty easy. This is not the time for serious wine; itÂs the time for a wine with an appropriately demonic name. Following are some fitting party wines, with descriptions from their websites: Q Casillero del Diablo Carmenere, Concha y Toro, Rapel Valley, Chile: ÂThe beautiful vineyards of Casillero del Diablo are home to some of the finest wines in the world. But few outsiders know the dark secret that lies beneath them. For the locals say that in the depths of the cellar lives the Devil himself. A tale so infamous, they named the wine Casillero del Diablo, the DevilÂs Cellar.ÂŽ This devilishly tasty signature red is richly colored, with aromas and flavors of red fruits, chocolate and coffee. Priced at about $15. Q Headless Red, Ash Hollow Winery, Walla Walla, Washing-ton: The label features a headless rider galloping through the forest at midnight. ÂHeadless Red is a sinfully delicious blend of ... Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon ... hand harvested before dusk from Ash HollowÂs Estate Vine-yard. The wine carries aromatics of dark raspberry and bing cherries with whispering hints of earth, heady spices, with a subtle oak finish.ÂŽ Perfect for pairing with dark chocolate (probably stolen from your kidÂs goodies bag). Priced at about $21. Q Poizin, Armida Winery, Dry Creek Valley, California: ÂPoizin, the wine to die for! Simply delicious Sonoma County zinfandel in a spec-tacular skull-and-crossbones package.ÂŽ A blend of Zinfandel and petite syrah, the regular bottling is priced at $25 and the reserve bottling comes complete with its own wooden coffin for $60. If you need to recover the day after Halloween, its sibling, the Antidote, a blend of white grapes (mostly pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc) for about $20. Q River of Skulls 2010 Mourvedre, Twisted Oak Winery, Calaveras County, California: With a name like River of Skulls, you know it has to be good... An ankle bone of cherry aromas is connected to the shin bone of blackberries, which connects to the knee bone of spice and perfume. The knee bone is connected to the leg bone of cherry, blackberry and black pep-per flavors, which connects to the hip bone, back bone and neck bone of a nice long vanilla finish. Priced at $39, the suggested food pairing on the web-site is dead people. Seriously. Q Skeleton Wines Gruner Veltliner and Blauer Zweigelt (red), Austria: This one is neck and neck with the Headless Red for the best bottle, displaying a drunken skeleton sitting against a barrel with a wine glass in hand. Priced at about $10. Q Slaughterhouse Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, California: The name of this wine is chilling enough. The label features the dilapidated slaughterhouse on the Cali-fornia vineyard where this wine is produced. Although the Rutherford winery is a small operation, this is some very serious wine, with the vineyard planted by Tuck Beckstoffer. If you find it, expect to pay $70 or more. Q The Velvet Devil Merlot, Charles Smith Wines, Washington State: Every good Halloween party needs a little devil, and this one is priced at less than $15. The website promises Âclassic merlot aromas of dark cherries, cedar, pipe tobacco. Anise, stone and cherry blossoms. Yeah, believe it! Naughty and nice, a true Velvet Devil.ÂŽ Q Vampire Wines, Paso Robles, California: The website cites rumors that the winery is owned by vampires. There are, indeed, 12 Vampire wines from which to choose bottled under four labels: Vampire, Chateau de Vam-pire, Trueblood and Dracula. Featuring mostly red wines, the prices range from $13 to $35. Q Werewolf Cabernet Sauvignon, Transylv ania, Romania: A unique black bottle with a full moon and wolf scratches. ÂWerewolf Cabernet Sau-vignon is noticeable for its dark red color. It has a scent of bell peppers and spice. It has an imposing taste with good structure and fine tannins.ÂŽ ItÂs priced at less than $10. Q Cover ups: If you canÂt find any of these scary bottles for your Halloween party or want to serve something from your own collection for Halloween, you can make your own ghoulish labels or buy some. I found some on Amazon.com bearing names such as: Ye Olde Spider Venom 1897, Rat Poisin, Doctor RotgutÂs Famous Embalming Juice 1907 (Crisp and Refreshing), and Zombie Virus Â„ Exquisitely Crafted from the WorldÂs Finest BRAINS.

The result is Kitchen restaurant in West Palm Beach. Kitchen opened Oct. 4 by chef Matthew Byrne, with front of house run by Aliza Byrne, his spouse. Opening night had seats filled by food lovers who know the chef by reputation and went to support him. ÂOur motto is ÂKeep it Simple;Â buy the freshest ingredients and cook them minimally,ÂŽ Aliza Byrne said. ÂWe wanted a restaurant that reflected how we live and entertain and cook at home. We want this to have the same feeling as walking into a dinner party, and walking out with an experience.ÂŽ The space at the corner of Dixie Highway and Belvedere Road used to be Vagabondi. ÂCarlos wanted out of his lease to do other things, so we bought out his lease, and bought all his fixtures. We completely reworked the space,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe found a storage space in the back that we added drywall to and finished out Â„ itÂs at the back of the kitchen and is now the ChefÂs Table. Private parties of up to 10 people can book the table where we serve a four-course chefÂs tasting menu for $60 per person.ÂŽ The food is comfort-style with a touch of French influences that the chef picked up working in Philadel-phia. Roast chicken, and veal loin chops are among the standards on the menu. ÂItÂs simple food, but people are loving it,ÂŽ Aliza Byrne said. The chefÂs signature dish is chicken schnitzel Â„ a pounded and sauteed chicken breast with radish, sweet onion, arugula, mushrooms and a fried egg over all. Crab cakes with corn relish and aioli, a tuna tartare terrine and a pr osciutto and asparagus appetizer grace the menu that changes often. ÂWeÂre so lucky right now to get heirloom tomatoes from Walter at Farmhouse Tomatoes (in Lantana). WeÂre trying to use as much locally grown produce as possible, but all good quality products. All our chick-ens are Murray chickens with no hormones or antibiotics; we use Bush BrothersÂ prime beef. A beet dish features blue cheese sandwiched between slices of roasted red beets with microgreens and a wal-nut oil dressing. A dessert medley recently included a chocolate mousse, strawberry short-cake and creme brulee. ÂWe have a nice wine list, all boutique items,ÂŽ Aliza Byrne said. SheÂs a stickler for staff training and has an employee handbook and training manual for the staff. ÂGreat food is nothing without great service,ÂŽ she said.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY REACHING NORTHERN PALM BEACH COUNTYÂ’S MOST AFFLUENT READERS BY MARY JANE FINEmjfine@floridaweekly.comHANCES ARE YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO has diabetes. This metabolic disorder affects more than 25 million Ameri-cans, including approximately 6 mil-lion people who have the disease but have not been diagnosed. St. MaryÂs Medi-cal Center supports the American Diabetes Association in its efforts to raise awareness of the disease and its serious complications. Diabetes is a chronic medical condition that occurs when excess glucose (sugar) builds up in the blood. It can cause numerous health problems if not properly managed. Some symptoms of diabetes may seem so insignificant or seemingly harmless that you may not even notice them for months or per-haps years. St. MaryÂs Medical Center wants people to know that being diagnosed early is the key to a lifetime of better health. Symptoms of diabetes will vary to some extent depending on the type of diabetes you have. Pre-diabetes and gestational diabetes may not cause any symptoms. However, classic symptoms of type 1 and type 2 dia-betes include excessive thirst and increased urination. This occurs because your kidneys have to work overtime to filter and absorb surplus sugar that has built up in the blood. When your kidneys canÂt keep up, this sugar is excreted into the urine along with fluids drawn from your tissues. A vicious cycle then begins, which prompts more frequent urination that leads to dehydration. This, in turn, is followed by drinking more fluids to quench your thirst and urinate even more. Other common signs of diabetes include fatigue, weight loss and blurred vision. Fatigue may be caused by increased urina-tion resulting in dehydration and the bodyÂs inability to properly use sugar for energy. An unexplained weight loss can occur when calories and sugar are lost due to frequent urination. High levels of sugar can pull fluid from tissues, including the lenses in the eye, and affect the ability to focus. People with diabetes also may have slowhealing sores, tingling or numbness in the hands and feet, and tender gums. High sugar in the blood can impair the bodyÂs natural healing process and weaken its ability to fight infections. Women may be especially prone to bladder and vaginal infections. Nerve damage caused by high sugar levels can make your hands and feet tingle, or you might experience burning pain in your arms, hands, legs and feet. Because of the bodyÂs decreased ability to fight germs, you may notice your gums pulling away from your teeth or sores developing in your gums. If you have any of these symptoms and think you may have diabetes, St. MaryÂs Medical Center is here to help. The hospital has highly skilled endocrinologists on staff that can test, diagnose and create a treatment plan based on your results. There are many steps you can take to protect your health and your kidneys. St. MaryÂs nutritionists and dietitians can get you on track to maintaining a healthy diet and exercising on a regular basis. Other steps you can take include taking medications as direct-ed, monitoring blood glucose daily, checking your feet for sores, brushing and flossing your teeth daily and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. If left untreated, long-term complications associated with diabetes include cardiovas-cular disease, such as a heart attack, stroke and narrowing of the arteries. Other dis-abling and potentially life-threatening com-plications are skin problems such as bacterial infections, bone and joint problems includ-ing osteoporosis, and damage to the kidneys, eyes and feet. Pregnant women who have gestational diabetes may experience pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure) and increase their babyÂs risk of excess growth, low blood sugar, respiratory distress syndrome, jaun-dice and type 2 diabetes later in life. Talk with your doctor if you notice any of these symptoms. Diabetes cannot be cured, but it can be successfully treated so you can live a healthy, active life.

Matt and Julie Goforth are proud of the mission of the JDRF Greater Palm Beach County Chapter. The organization Âs dedication to finding a cure for insulin dependent diabe-tes and its compli-cations has been greatly inspiring to them on mul-tiple levels. In addition to raising funds for research, the Greater Palm Beach Chapter of JDRF also serves to support and empower indi-viduals living with type 1 diabetes, their families and their friends. The longstanding connection between OYM Cycling and the JDRF goes back to a friendly invitation from one cyclist to another. About eleven years ago, Matt returned to his childhood home in South Florida area after completing his degree at the University of Florida. He was looking for a great local riding group. At the time, local cyclist Randy Clough was in a small ride group that went out on Wednesday nights. The group was mostly mountain bike riders using the roads around West Palm, Lake Worth and Palm Beach as an Âurban assaultÂŽ training ride. One night, Randy met and invited Matt who to ride with the group on a regular basis, and the rest is a happy history. Randy shares, ÂAt the time I met Matt, my business partner, Dana Thomas, had a direct connection to JDRF through his son who had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The ride program was fairly new for the Greater West Palm Beach Chapter of JDRF. Dana had joined in a couple of JDRF rides and then convinced me to participate.ÂŽ Matt also understands the power of having a personal connection with this disease. ÂI have a close friend with diabetes and saw the ups and downs he went through during col-lege. It takes discipline,ÂŽ he adds. The Greater Palm Beach County chapter of JDRF works through the national organizationÂs JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes program to offer excit-ing opportunities for cyclists of all levels. Multiple fundraising and mile-age options (usually between 30 and 100 miles) exist for participants in one of six national ride locations per year. The access to training with a USA Cycling certified coach and the variety of ride destinations designed for all fitness levels make this an exciting way to reach personal fit-ness goals while fundraising for a great cause. For more information on getting involved with Ride to Cure Diabetes with The Greater West Palm Beach chapter of JDRF see: http://greaterpalmbeach.jdrf.org/.Confessions of a Sweaty Yogi: Yoga Can Help! Y ou probably don't think about diabetes Â„ but you should. Diabetes can strike people at almost any age. More than 16 million Americans are affected Â„ an increase of 33 percent from 1990 to 1998, accord-ing to the Centers for Disease Con-trol. Research has shown this chron-ic condition can be controlled and greatly improved by conscientious lifestyle chang-esÂ„i.e., weight loss, diet, exer-ciseÂ„and yoga can help. Exercise is a big part of diabetes treatment because it increases insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugar. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine (May 3, 2001) found people at a higher risk for contracting type 2 diabetes can reduce their chance of getting the disease by 58 percent by losing as little as 10 pounds, exercis-ing, and adopting a healthy diet. And many have turned to yoga to battle the emotional and physical challenges of weight loss. Several Indian and European studies have indicated yoga also may help reduce insulin-regu-lating medication by lowering blood sugar levels. But because people under stress have elevated blood sugar lev-els, it's difficult to determine whether asanas and meditation work because they relax patients or because specific poses stimulate the pancreas, causing it to release more insulin. Either way, some believe a yoga intervention has to transcend the pancreas and insulin problem. What does yoga offer that ordinary exercise doesn't? Certain postures have a ther-apeutic effect upon various organs and glands. Those postures that benefit the pancreas and its functions are of the greatest interest to diabetics and pre-diabetics. Among these are the backward bending postures such as Cobra Pose, Locust Pose, Bow Pose and Camel Pose. These postures bring stimula-tion to the pancreas, as they exercise the erector spinae, latissimus dorsi, obliques, deep intertransversarii and posterior abdominal wall. Also, most of these postures cause the internal viscera to stretch, bringing stimula-tion to the pancreas and other glands and organs that otherwise receive no stimulation. Other postures such as Pyramid, Half Tortoise Pose, and Rabbit Pose provide stimulation and rejuvenation to the cells of the pancreas and other endocrine glands by way of compres-sion. Bodhi Hot Yoga is the perfect sanctuary for mind and body transforma-tion. To see more studio information or class times visit our website.

MIRAKIAN, M.D.South Florida Radiation OncoloyBoard-CertiÂ“ ed Radiation Oncologist Diplomate American Board of Radiology B reast can-cer is often publicized when a celebrity is diagnosed and undergoes a par-ticular treatment, which can sometimes influence the public as to how they should proceed with their own treatment. This can often lead to confusion 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 Â… 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/syndromes; 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 usu-ally involves a lumpectomy, lymph node biopsy, whole or partial breast radiation, and possibly chemotherapy, and endo-crine therapy (pills). Reconstruction is usually reserved following 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 oneÂs primary care physician to discuss screening guidelines and risk assessment for breast cancer so that an individualized approach can be developed and followed. 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 per-sonalized 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. Q Family history, ethnicity play a role in deciding the right age for prostate screening T here has been significant recent debate regarding prostate cancer screening and treatment. In 2012, a total of 241,740 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer of men in the Unit-ed States today. In large part, due to prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening, the number of men diagnosed with early stage disease has increased from 30 percent in 1989 to 1992 to 45 per-cent from 1999 to 2001. Additionally, because of screen-ing and early detection, death rates from pros-tate cancer have decreased by 4.1 percent annually from 1994 to 2001. Despite these advances, in 2012, 28,170 men passed away from prostate cancer and many more men are living with metastatic prostate cancer that is affecting their overall quality of life and may ultimately take their lives. The American Urology Association has issued guidelines state that the greatest benefit for PSA screening appears to be for men between 55 and 69. However, very importantly, this does not mean that PSA screening should not be performed in men younger than 55 or older than 69. Younger men with higher risk factors such as family history or being of the African-American race, and men older than 69 who are in good health, should make PSA testing decisions based on discussions with their physician. We see many men younger than 55 and older than 69 who are diagnosed, because of PSA screening, with pros-tate cancers that have a very high risk of spreading and causing local/regional problems or death.

Our trainers guide you, instruct you and motivate you through-out the entire workout. We help keep our membersÂ heart rates in the right zones throughout the workout. Stay in orange zone for 12-20 minutes, and youÂll continue to burn calories hours after youÂve stopped working out. Q: What is EPOC?A: EPOC is your Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption, and this is when your heart rate is at a certain level and where your body burns maximum cal-ories during your workout (500-1,000), and then continues to burn calories for the next 24-36 hours after working out as your metabolic rate has been increased. Our personal trainers are professionals at helping you achieve maximum EPOC. Q: Are the programs tailored?A: Yes, we have first-time exercisers, athletes and everything in-between. We start each person off at their own pace and everyone works at their own level. Our personal trainers pay specific attention every step of the way to guide each person toward their individual goals. Each member progresses gradually every workout. You will never have the s ame workout twice. Q: How fast does a typical client see changes? A: It varies from person to person, but three weeks is typical for seeing changes in their body, mind and well-be-ing, and this is without changes to their diet. When a client starts eating healthier, the changes are dramatic. Q Orange Therapy is located at 6390 W. Indiantown Road, Suite 24, Jupiter.

FlyingÂ…itÂ’s a family affairAs Air Trek Inc. celebrates its 35th year of providing Air Ambulance and Private Jet Aircraft Charter, brothers Dana, Lester, and Wayne Carr are reminiscing over three and a half decades in aviation. Trek is defined as a long and never-ending journey. Our journey offi-cially began Octo-ber 16, 1978, with the incorporation of Air Trek Inc. This is the beginning of our storyÂƒ Some kids dream of flying. For some it is the fantasy of flight, but for a spe-cial few flying becomes a passion. My brother, Wayne Carr, happens to be one of the latter. As a kid, Wayne dreamed of becoming a pilot. As a teen, flying became his passion. At 19, Wayne worked as an auto mechanic and auto body repairman to pay for his private pilotÂs training. Our journey begins one spring day when Wayne was driving home from work at Reedman Chevrolet in Long-horn, Penn sylv ania. He stopped by 3M airport (a small private airfield just miles from Phila-delphia International Airport) and said, ÂI want to be a pilot.ÂŽ A ÂDiscovery FlightÂŽ was scheduled for the following Saturday and thus a childhood dream was soon fulfilled. This was just the start of a lifetime passion. Vowing not to interrupt the training until earning his Private Pilot certificate, Wayne held back from a family move to Florida to complete the Private PilotÂs course. His training continued; through the use of the GI Bill while he was in the Air Force, Wayne earned his Commercial/Instrument Single & Multi Engine Land, Certified Flight Instructor. After completing his Air Force service and returning home to Florida, Wayne added his Instrument and Multi Engine Flight Instructor, Airline Trans-port Pilot, Commercial Single and Multi-Engine Sea, Helicopter and Glider Certification along with their respective Flight Instructor Ratings. In addition to these ratings, Wayne received Transport Category Type Rat-ings in Citation and Westwind jets, and most recently a DC-4 (a 4 engine radial prop used in WWII for cargo transport across the Atlantic). Furthermore, he added an Airframe/ Power Plant Mechanics Certificate with Inspection Authorization, allowing Wayne to fix what he flies. Q Â„ Dana Carr is an Airline Transport Pilot and serves as Director of Operations for Air Trek Inc.

In recent years, media pundits around the world have proclaimed the extraor-dinary value of so-called super foods. Blueberries, broc-coli, and especial-ly kale have been described as pos-sessing remarkable, almost magical, properties. What is it about these foods that makes them so good for you? From a basic perspective, adding fresh fruits and veg-etables of all types to your daily diet is a very smart way to help improve your current levels of health and well-being. Fresh fruits and vegetables are so important that many national agencies and organizations have promoted the Âfive to stay aliveÂŽ rule Â„ these groups recommend eating at least five portions of fruits and vegetables each day. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide numerous health benefits, many of which are based upon the actions of biochemicals known as phytonutrients. Certain of these formerly mysterious compounds stimulate enzyme activ-ity and others have actions similar to those of hormones. Many phytonutri-ents are powerful antioxidants that cir-culate throughout the body, scooping up and neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are a normal byproduct of cel-lular metabolism, but too many of them will cause a lot of problems. Excess free radicals have, for example, been linked to development of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and even can-cer. Blueberries, broccoli and kale are categorized as Âsuper foodsÂŽ owing to the abundance of phytonutrients they contain and make available to those who consume them. The takeaway is not to load up on kale, broccoli, and blueberries in an attempt to make up for years of less-than-opti-mal dietary choices. Rather, the goal is to begin, today, to implement a health-ful, balanced food plan. Diets lack-ing fresh fruits and vegetables in general, and lacking super foods in particular, will not provide you and your family with the resources needed to enjoy productive, energy-filled days. Resolving to follow the Âfive-to-stay-aliveÂŽ plan will add literally missing ingredients to your daily health regime. As you upgrade your nutrition, youÂre automatically upgrading the functioning of all your bodyÂs sys-tems. With sufficient dietary phy-tonutrients, you can help pre-vent chronic disease, strengthen the immune system, combat the effects of obesity, and obtain numerous anti-aging benefits. The vast array of advantages that will likely ensue include more restful sleep; enhanced skin tone and muscle tone; increased reserves of energy through-out the day; and improved ability to focus and complete tasks successfully. Improved peace of mind will naturally occur as a consequence of these ben-efits, and an untapped reservoir of cre-ativity may be revealed. Super foods truly provide super benefits.

A: In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin Â… a hormone needed for sugar to be used as energy. ItÂs usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and can be self man-aged through insu-lin injections, blood glucose monitor-ing, balanced meals and exercise. In type 2 diabetes Â… or Âadult onset diabetesÂŽ the body is able to produce some insu-lin, but does not use it well. ItÂs the most common form of diabetes and in many cases can be prevented by achieving a reason-able body weight. It is self managed by balanced meals, exercise, self monitoring and medica-tion. Although itÂs usually diagnosed in adults, diagnosis is on the rise in chil-dren and young adults. Q: Why has the incidence of type 2 diabetes increased so dramatically in the last decade, especially in children? A: A combination of lack of physical activity and increase in obesity. Peo-ple have convenient access to fast food, and portion sizes have increased over the past 30 years. Adults and children are spending more time in front of the television, computers and video games. This is due to increased popularity of social media and technology. Q: How can Jupiter Medical Center help? A: By providing education and empowerment. Knowing how to man-age the condition can make a big dif-ference. Diabetes can be controlled through a combination of diet, exercise, blood glucose monitoring and medi-cation. Once diagnosed, people with diabetes can learn to effectively manage their disease and lead normal, healthy lives. Jupiter Medical CenterÂs Diabetes Education program is the only outpa-tient hospital-based diabetes education program in Northern Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

There are many wonders that a highly trained cosmetic and restor-ative dentist can offer patients that may surprise you. Major issues with dental health can be effec-tively treated, and even the most seri-ous dental problems can be dealt with. In order to achieve such great results, however, it's often necessary for a den-tist to have exten-sive experience and training in both dental reconstruc-tion and cosmetics. This is the world of advanced smile design, and we'd like to take a few minutes to look into it right now.What does smile design refer to? Smile design refers to the ability for a dentist to create a smile that not only looks attractive, but suits the patient's facial features for an overall healthy and natural appearance. Simultaneously, we can achieve excellent dental health and function, giving patients the ability to eat whatever they'd like and smile with confidence. Advanced Digital Technology Smile design today involves the use of extensive digital photography of a patient's face, teeth and existing smile so that the doctor can custom design a new smile for each individual. Teeth can be lengthened, straightened, brightened, and properly aligned so the final result is a beautiful healthy smile that becomes an expression of the true self. "Our patients are welcome to look through a number of before and after photos of actual patients we've treated", states Dr. Ajmo. "Once they see what we've done for so many others, they quickly realize we can the same for them too." PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry also uses 3D CT Technology for all den-tal implant treatment. 3D Technology is much more accurate than traditional black and white x-rays, allowing Dr. Ajmo to precisely place dental implants in the proper location in your jaws. Customized Smile Makeover Treatment Your smile makeover may include a number of treatment options depending on your personal needs and desires. It may involve replacing older crowns with new cosmetic metal free crowns which look so much more natural and will usu-ally last longer. We could also enhance chipped, worn or dark teeth with cosmet-ic porcelain veneers for a brighter more youthful appearance. In some cases we may makeover the upper teeth and sim-ply bleach the lower teeth and achieve outstanding results.Customized Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatment Full mouth reconstructions involve replacing missing teeth with dental implants and replacing older dental work with new metal free state-of-the-art porcelains.Of course there is always an emphasis on the overall health and wellness of the mouth, but these treatments are always combined with cosmetic enhancements to achieve overall long term dental health and esthetics. A full mouth reconstructions may involve dental implants, crowns, bridgework or a number of necessary treatment modalities. Either way, the overall goal involves feeling healthy, looking your best, being able to eat meals properly and giving patients the ability to live life to the fullest. What to Expect from a Dental Restorative Makeover Whether you undergo a smile makeover or a full mouth reconstruction, you can expect great results and improved dental wellness. And thanks to advanced dentistry, you can usually have all necessary treat-ments performed in the same office with the mutual understanding that your mouth will be healthy and your smile will look great. With Advanced Dentistry, patients can experience optimum dental care to support overall health and well being.Learn More About Advanced Dental Care If you would like to learn more about smile design and your many options out there for cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry or dental implant treatment, contact our Palm Beach Gardens office today.
