X Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists have reported more than 25,000 green sea turtle nests on more than 26 state beaches this year, more than twice the previous record. Three local orga-nizations saw similar trends on Palm Beach County beaches. Loggerhead Marinelife Center, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center have each reported sig-nificant increases in the number of green sea turtle nests on their beaches. ÂWe would like to believe that conservation efforts over the last 30 years are a factor in the high number of green sea turtle nests documented in 2013, but the truth is, we do not know for certain,ÂŽ said Dr. Charles Manire, director of research and rehabilita-tion at Loggerhead Marinelife Center. Because sea turtles have such a long life span and late reproductive age, it is necessary to have data that spans multiple generations, which means a minimum of 60 years of data are nec-essary to be able to draw conclusions with any certainty, according to Dr. Manire. The organization has been monitoring sea turtle nesting activity on local beaches for 30 years. Loggerhead Marinelife Center has counted 3,712 green sea turtle nests on Juno Beach, Jupiter, Tequesta and Jupiter Island. Last year, about half that amount of green nests was recorded on the same stretch of beach, with 1,361 nests in 2012. Overall, the organization reported 10,376 nests in 2013, which also includes 100 leatherback nests and 6,564 loggerhead nests. Nearby John D.

National legisla-tion died proposing an earned path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. Hundreds of thousands of migrants and supporters across the country took to the streets in protests reminiscent of the earlier era of the civil rights movement. The rancor emanat-ing from the debate and subsequent failure of the legislation ignited a wave of anti-immigrant opposition affecting especially those communities with a significant population of immigrants. Florida found itself in the crosshairs of those on opposite sides of com-prehensive immigration reform. Efforts proliferated here to thwart unauthor-ized U.S entry and residence. Some communities took the approach that the higher the bar to prevent the entry and acceptance of immigrants, the more likely immigrants would take the hint and Âself-deportÂŽ and/or avoid coming at all. Anti-immigration laws metastasized, fed by fear, mistrust and repudiation of the Âother.ÂŽ The ÂotherÂŽ meant anyone different from you and I (and truth be told, I am a little worried about you). Palm Beach County experienced this seismic activity. The county attracts the majority of its newcomers from Latin America and the Caribbean; one in every four residents arrive in the county from somewhere outside the U.S. The anti-immigrant viewpoint found enthusiastic supporters, wrapping anti-immigrant rhetoric in the American flag and espousing mass deportation as the antidote to the countryÂs broken immi-gration system. Demonstrations staged in the town of Jupiter were evidence of the tensions growing locally over a decade-long wave of new migrants from Guatemala and Mexico. The hot b utton is sue in Jupiter was the spontaneous appearance of an open-air labor market on city streets cre-ated by immigrants. Jupiter was soon neck-deep in controversy over how best to deal with the tensions spawned by the impromptu market. Complaints and concerns escalated in fear the market was generating health and human safety issues for the entire community. Then, something extraordinary happened. Sandra Lazo De La Vega and Timothy J. Steigenga tell the story in ÂAgainst the Tide: Immigrants, Day Laborers and Community.ÂŽ The book describes how a diverse group of local stakeholders came togeth-er to address the growing apprehension in Jupiter Â„ a town then of 50,000 Â„ about its migrants. The approach the town took was in stark contrast to the hostile, anti-immigrant policies advo-cated by a cadre of passionate, disparate voices inclusive of but not limited to area residents. The book chronicles how the community-inspired collaboration among immigrants, neighborhood residents, university faculty and students, and town representatives defused tensions. The endresult was the relocation in 2006 of the street-side labor market to the newly created El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center. Philanthropy played an important role: In 2004, the Ford Foundation fund-ed information gathering about JupiterÂs immigrant community that helped tee up an informed discussion about the issues among all the stakeholders. The collaborative process led to the subse-quent creation of El Sol. The nonprofitÂs current executive director, Jocelyn Skol-nik, relocated to Jupiter to finish her undergraduate studies at Florida Atlan-tic UniversityÂs Harriet L. Wilkes Hon-ors College. She worked under the aegis of the Ford grant, ÂLatino Immigrants in South Florida.ÂŽ The Center for Latin American Studies, in association with Florida Atlantic University, produced the Jupiter-related research. The New York Times said of the Jupiter experience that, ÂIt is the wise com-munity that resolves to do what it can to help day laborers Â„ and itself Â„ instead of waiting for the great solution that hasnÂt arrived.ÂŽ El Sol continues to work to promote the integration of immi-grants into the community and pursue a vision of community where all residents can achieve their potential. When asked about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for new immigrants, Dr. Timothy J. Steigenga, professor of political science, and chair-man of Humanities/Social Sciences at Wilkes Honors College-FAU, said, ÂI think the most important thing is immi-grant integration. No matter what the federal government does in terms of national immigration policy, local com-munities will be the ones left on the front lines of negotiating the process of immigrant integration. Cities like Jupiter, where immigrants have a trusted insti-tution to facilitate a link to integration, will be much better off than those places around the country that have taken a restrictive and punitive approach. Jupi-ter has moved forward in a positive direction in a national context otherwise frozen in a negative and polarized immi-gration debate. As such, El Sol serves all Jupiter residents by improving the qual-ity of life in our town not just today, but most importantly, for the future.ÂŽ Q Â„ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian and past president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

The rising resistance to ObamaÂ’s drone wars ÂI wasnÂt scared of drones before, but now when they fly overhead I wonder, ÂWill I be next?ÂÂ That is the question asked by 9-year-old Nabila Rehman, from northwest Pakistan. She was injured in a drone attack a year ago, in her small village of Ghun-di Kala. She saw her grandmother, Mamana Bibi, blown to pieces in the strike. Her brother Zubair also was injured. Their case has become the lat-est to draw attention to the controver-sial targeted killing program that has become central to President Barack ObamaÂs foreign policy and global war-making. ÂWe really just have a very simple message to the U.S.: How do you justify killing a grandmother? How does that make anyone safer?ÂŽ Mus-tafa Qadri posed the question on the ÂDemocracy Now!ÂŽ news hour. Qadri authored a new Amnesty International report titled ÂÂWill I Be Next?Â U.S. Drone Strikes in Pakistan.ÂŽ Nabila and Zubair are unique among the growing number of drone-strike victims: They were able to appear before Congress, along with their father, Rafiq ur Rehman, to testify about the strike and the devasta-tion it brought to their family. They are featured in a new documentary being released for free on the Inter-net this week, ÂUnmanned: AmericaÂs Drone Wars,ÂŽ by Brave New Films. In it, Rafiq, a primary-school teacher, describes that day: ÂPeople enjoyed life before the attacks. It was 2:45 on October 24th of 2012. After school finished I went into town to buy school supplies.ÂŽ When he returned home, they told him his mother was dead. There was a crater where her garden was. She was picking okra with the children. ÂThatÂs where my mother was killed,ÂŽ Rafiq contin-ues. ÂMy family has been destroyed since my mother was killed.ÂŽ Nine children in all were injured, as this drone strike fit a typical pattern, with one initial strike, followed closely by another to hit the rescuers. Thirteen-year-old Zubair testified before Congress: ÂWhen the drone fired the first time, the whole ground shook and black smoke rose up. The air smelled poisonous. We ran, but several minutes later the drone fired again. People from the village came to our aid and took us to the hospital. We spent the night in great agony at the hospital, and the next morning I was operated on.ÂŽ Attacking rescuers is a war crime. Mustafa Qadri from Amnesty Interna-tional explained: ÂFor example, some laborers in a very impoverished village near the Afghanistan border, they get targeted, eight die instantly in a tent; those who come to rescue or to look for survivors are themselves targeted. In great detail, eyewitnesses, victims who survive, tell us about the terror, the panic, as drones hovered over-head. ... ThereÂs a very high threshold for proving (war crimes). With the secrecy surrounding the program, the remoteness of this area, we can only get the truth once the U.S. comes clean and explains what is the justification for these killings.ÂŽ President Obama himself consistently defends the accuracy and legal-ity of the targeted killing program. He was directly challenged on it recently, though, by his own 16-year-old human-rights hero, Malala Yousafzai. She is the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for her outspoken support for educating girls and women. Many thought she would win this yearÂs Nobel Peace Prize. While the White House did not publi-cize her comments, Malala released a separate statement about her visit with the Obamas, saying, ÂI also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on educa-tion it will make a big impact.ÂŽ Resistance to President ObamaÂs drone wars is growing. In upstate New York, in a surprise ruling, five anti-drone activists were acquitted after being tried for blocking the gate of Hancock Field Air National Guard Base near Syracuse. Code Pink is organizing a national conference in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 16-17, called ÂDrones Around the Globe: Prolifera-tion and Resistance.ÂŽ And at least one drone pilot, Brandon Bryant, a former sensor operator for the U.S. Air Force Predator program, has now spoken out about the horrors of killing innocent civilians and the post-traumatic stress disorder that followed. While only five members of Congress (all Democrats) came to hear the Rehman family testify, the words of young Zubair are now on the record, a painful testament to President ObamaÂs policy of so-called targeted killing with drones: ÂI no longer love blue skies. In fact, I now prefer gray skies. The drones do not fly when the skies are gray. And for a short period of time, the mental tension and fear eases. When the skies brighten, though, the drones return, and so, too, does the fear.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. m w o m u s amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly To say that President Barack Obama is on the record telling Americans they can keep their current health insurance is an understatement. He repeated the assurance so many times during the health-care debate that it was almost a verbal tic. He was stirring: ÂAmericans must have the freedom to keep whatever doc-tor and health-care plan they have.ÂŽ He was adamant: ÂIf you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period.ÂŽ He was clear: ÂLet me be clear: If you like your doctor or health-care provider, you can keep them. If you like your health-care plan, you can keep that, too.ÂŽ He had to keep repeating his promise, since there was so much bad informa-tion out there. ÂNo matter what youÂve heard,ÂŽ he said in a weekly radio address in August 2009, Âif you like your doctor or health-care plan, you can keep it.ÂŽ Practically no President Obama speech was complete without this disclaimer. Rarely has a major domestic program been sold on the basis of a premise so patently untrue. No matter what youÂve heard from the president of the United States, hundreds of thousands of people in states around the country are now receiving notices that their insurance is getting canceled. It raises the question of how the president could be so wrong about a basic element of his own signa-ture initiative. Until now, President Obama hasnÂt been pressed to square what he said with the reality of those cancellation notices. But the dam is breaking. For-mer adviser David Axelrod has refined the Obama promise to say that ÂmostÂŽ people can keep their insurance, which doesnÂt have quite the same ring as the presidentÂs sweeping statements of yore. White House spokesman Jay Car-ney conceded under questioning that some plans are being axed. It may be true, per Mr. Axelrod, that ÂmostÂŽ people with insurance in the country are keeping it, but ÂmostÂŽ peo-ple in the individual market are losing it. Robert Laszewski of the consultancy Health Policy and Strategy Associates estimates that 19 million people are covered in the individual market and 16 million of them have plans that donÂt pass muster under the exacting new Obamacare rules. This is a problem of a different order than the travails of www.healthcare.gov. The website will presumably get fixed; its failures are a bug, not a feature. Throwing people off old plans, in con-trast, is central to ObamacareÂs remak-ing of American health insurance. Mr. Carney justified the cancellations as the shedding of ÂsubstandardÂŽ policies, by which he means policies that are more affordable and less comprehensive than allowed under the law. Many of the people who found that those policies suited them will now be forced to buy different, more expensive policies. Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, is planning to offer legisla-tion grandfathering those plans so peo-ple can really keep them. Sen. JohnsonÂs bill would force Democrats to choose between defending the law and stand-ing by President ObamaÂs frequently repeated promise. They will, of course, choose the law. The line about how ÂAmericans must have the freedom to keep whatever doc-tor and health-care plan they haveÂŽ isnÂt operative, and never was. Welcome to Obamacare.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhoever said that getting old isnÂt for sissies knew what she was talking about. All of us, including our dogs and cats, find that as we age, our bodies just donÂt work as well as they used to. Eye diseases are among the most commonly seen problems in older dogs and cats. One change you may notice is a condition called lenticular sclerosis, or nucle-ar sclerosis. That bluish haze you may see in a petÂs eyes isnÂt cataracts, as is often suspected, but the result of a nor-mal aging of the lens. The good news is that it doesnÂt affect vision and doesnÂt require any treatment. Cataracts are cloudy spots on the normally transparent lens of the eye. They look like a milky gray film behind the pupil. Cataracts may start to appear when dogs are 6 years old to 8 years old and can eventually lead to blindness. Dogs rely more on scent than sight, how-ever, and they can get around very well simply by using their noses Â„ as long as you donÂt move the furniture. If your dogÂs cataracts are so bad that heÂs run-ning into things, ask your veterinarian about cataract surgery.Older cats rarely develop cataracts. They are more likely to suffer vision loss from retinal diseases, uveitis (a painful inflammation of certain eye structures) or glaucoma. Like dogs, cats adapt well to vision loss. They compensate by relying more on their hearing or their whiskers.Other age-related vision problems, such as keratoconjunctivitis sicca, bet-ter known as dry eye, require aggressive treatment. Tears, which are produced by the lacrimal glands, lubricate, protect and cleanse the eye. Tear production tends to decrease with age. If that happens, the eye becomes dry and irritated. It starts to produce more mucus, causing a goopy discharge. Dry eyes are itchy, and dogs may scratch at them or rub them on the carpet in an attempt to relieve the itch. Dogs with dry eye are also more likely to develop corneal ulcers. Dry eye is diagnosed with a Schirmer tear test. The veterinarian places a tiny paper strip at the inner corner of the eye, where the tears pool, and holds it there for one minute to see how much of the strip becomes wetted with tears. If the result indicates that tear production is below normal, the animal likely has dry eye. Dry eye is less common in cats than in dogs. Depending on the condition of the eye, your veterinarian may prescribe artificial tears (not saline solution), antibiotic eye drops or an immunosuppressant drug that stimulates tear production. This helps to keep the dog comfortable and the cornea healthy. The medication may need to be compounded at a special pharmacy. Glaucoma is an increase in pressure within the eye. It can develop quickly and is extremely painful. If your pet is squint-ing and the eye is tearing and feels harder than normal, consider it an emergency. A dog or cat with an acute case of glaucoma can lose his eyesight within 48 hours if the condition isnÂt treated immediately. Take your dog to the veterinarian for an eye exam any time you notice the fol-lowing signs: Q Redness Q Cloudiness Q Discharge Q Opaque or whitish film over the eye Q Tearing, squinting, pawing at the eye or other signs of pain Q Sensitivity to light Q An unusually soft or hard eye Q A swollen, crusty or itchy eyelid Q A bulging or sunken eye If you notice that your petÂs vision is not as keen as it used to be, donÂt simply chalk it up to old age. Oftentimes, medi-cation or other treatment can help, espe-cially if the problem is diagnosed early. Q Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss in older dogs, but they usually donÂ’t require surgical removal unless the dog is having trouble getting around. >> Mystic is a spayed German Shepherd mix.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYIt all served as a prelude of sorts to the JCCÂs weeklong grand opening cel-ebration, which kicks off 1-5 p.m. Nov. 10. That kicks off a Nov. 11-15 program showcase in which visitors are invited to sample fitness, adult education and bridge classes, hear from guest speakers and attend special events, all for free. The showcase will feature special guests including Jared Fogle (the Sub-way guy) to discuss healthy lifestyles for children; Olympic gold medalist Larry Krayzelburg who will also do a chil-drenÂs swim lesson; Chef John Rico from Culinary Institute of America; a film presented by the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival and more. It all will be capped by the Nov. 16 Grand Opening Gala, in which more than 300 people are expected to attend. Some patrons are already enjoying the programs of the JCC. During one visit, Rabbi Yaron Kapitulnik toted his 13-month-old son to a class. ÂWe are excited and thrilled that the JCC has come here. ItÂs just really a great move,ÂŽ Rabbi Kapitulnik, who serves a congregation at neighboring Temple Judea, later said by phone. ÂI personally love the facility. I love the facility. My child goes to the school.ÂŽ ItÂs a perfect arrangement for the rabbi, who with his wife, Ayala, has four children. His toddler certainly seemed to enjoy the energy of the space. ÂThereÂs a beautiful class called Music Together, so every Friday, I drop him off, go have a cup of coffee, then come back and get him,ÂŽ the rabbi said. The JCC actually strengthens the local Jewish community, he said, adding he hopes it will in turn strengthen area synagogues. He and other local religious leaders teach classes and lecture there. ÂWe teach at the JCC and get to hang out at the JCC. It allows us to meet oth-ers we would not otherwise have the opportunity to meet,ÂŽ Rabbi Kapitulnik said. Not everyone is comfortable going to temple. ÂFor some itÂs easy to walk into the synagogue. Others need a different place to feel that theyÂre Jewish,ÂŽ he said. Regardless, they are coming in droves.ÂI would say between 500 and 1,000 are coming through here in the course of a day,ÂŽ said Mindy Hanken, director of the Mandel JCC campus. They are meeting and exceeding expectations. ÂWe have over 100 children in our early childhood center, plus their par-ents come here. ÂThen what weÂre seeing, what we wanted, is their parents are then staying to take group fitness classes and using the aquatic center and staying for activ-ity,ÂŽ she said. And itÂs not just younger families.ÂWeÂre up to about 200 people playing bridge. Now weÂve started that five days a week,ÂŽ she said. Planners for the Mandel JCC envisioned the campus as a space that would attract people of all ages, from all back-grounds. The Mandel JCC eventually will be home to the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy once the school is constructed on the north side of the 16-acre campus, on Hood Road just east of FloridaÂs Turnpike in Palm Beach Gardens. It is a clean, contemporary space that seems harmonious with its landscape. The buildingÂs exterior, appropriately enough, is faced in Jerusalem stone. The landscaping incorporates lots of native plants. Inside, a swooping soffit helps guide the eye and the visitor through the space into a vast living room that over-looks the aquatic center and the site of the Jewish academy beyond. The Mandel JCC takes its name from The Jack and Joseph and Morton Man-del Foundation, which donated $5 mil-lion to build the $20 million project. Morton Mandel also named the West Palm Beach Public Library, and the family foundation has been a major sup-porter of the JCC near Cleveland.JCCFrom page 1 The Mandel JCC is at 5221 Hood Road (just west of Central Boulevard), Palm Beach Gardens.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 NEWS A9 COURTESY PHOTOThe Mandel JCCÂ’s Great Hall has views of the aquatic center, which has a gently sloping beach-like access to make it easier to enter the water. There also are lifts for those with disabilities.The center appeals to donors like David Blacher, who with his wife, Con-nie, provided capital funding for a spe-cial needs program, available to any child regardless of faith or race. ÂI grew up during the Depression and all around me there were people out of work through no fault of their own,ÂŽ Mr. Blacher said in the Great Hall. ÂAt that time if you were 40 or 45 years old and out of a job, you probably never would be hired because you were too old to be rehired or retrained. And there were no entitlement programs and there was no welfare.ÂŽ He continued.ÂIf you were poor and you were old, you were sent to an old age home. There were no nursing homes for the aged, there were no senior adult cen-ters. Children took care of their parents. It was a burden but it was a part of the social fabric,ÂŽ he said. That was a different world. ÂAnd today, that fabric has disappeared, and of course we all lived in neighborhoods where your aunt was two blocks away, or your uncle was four blocks away,ÂŽ he said. If a youth got in trouble, his or her parents heard about it. ThatÂs where the JCC comes into play.Students can come into study, to hang out with their friends, go swimming. ÂItÂs so important to have community centers. The general public should know you can come here regardless of faith or race. There is no membership here. You join the J,ÂŽ he said. There has been a certain community spirit to the center. During a recent visit, Bob Schneider was painting stripes on the pavement of the aquatic center. ThatÂs noteworthy because he and his wife, Beryl, gave $2 million to name the gym. You donÂt often see big-name donors developing sweat equity in an organi-zation like that; during another visit, Mr. Schneider was carrying a ham-mer. The Schneiders will serve as cochairs of the JCC Founders Gala. Mr. Schneider also was elected to the JCC board of directors. It all goes back to that spirit.Mr. Blacher points to the infants for whom the early childhood center cares. Many of them have mothers who work long shifts to provide for their families. ÂThere is so much going on in this affluent community that many people donÂt recognize or donÂt want to rec-ognize this is why we need this pile of brick and stone,ÂŽ he said. He tapped the table.ÂIÂve said to the people here as an executive board member,ÂŽ Mr. Blacher said. ÂThis is just a pile of brick. ItÂs what goes on here, the programs, that make it a community center.ÂŽ Q The Great Hall is a gathering spot at the JCC. There eventually will be a cafe serving coffee and snacks. Early childhood center students tape a video in their classroom.Â“We have over 100 children in our early childhood center, plus their parents come here.Then what weÂ’re seeing, what we wanted, is their parents are then staying to take group fitness classes and using the aquatic center and staying for activity.Â” Â— Mindy Hanken, director of the Mandel JCC campus
A10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VETERANS DAY 2013Veteran struggles to rebuild life after traumatic injuries BY NINA CUSMANOncusmano@Â” oridaweekly.comSgt. First Class Jonathan Langford saw the man throw the grenade that would end his military career. The 35-year-old had previously suffered a traumatic brain injury, dislocated hip, three broken ribs and a ruptured ear-drum, among other injuries as the result of two separate encounters with impro-vised explosive devices. These events earned Sgt. Langford, who was medi-cally discharged on June 27, three Purple Hearts. This veteran, now residing in Palm Bay, in a mortgage-free home provided to him by Military Warriors Support Foundation, is a civilian again for the first time in 15 years. Sgt. Langford has healed and is struggling to adjust. He was injured first in Iraq, then in Afghan-istan. The toll of so many years in the military has strained him physically and mentally, and also has strained his fam-ily. While trying to make up for lost time with his family, he also is searching for a job. With help from The Military Order of the Purple Heart of Florida, or MOPH, Military Warriors Support Foundation and LifeWave, he and his family are sl owly rea djusting. ÂLife after the military is harder than I ever could have imagined,ÂŽ Sgt. Lang-ford said. ÂWhatÂs my next chapter? What can I do next?ÂŽ While he struggles to answer these questions, Sgt. Langford makes a prior-ity of spending time with his wife of 13 years, Kristina, and their two sons Ian, 11, and Collin, 7. ÂI want to focus on making up for the missed birthdays and anniversaries,ÂŽ he said. ÂI donÂt think he knows how to make up for that huge part of his life that he spent away from civilian life, and itÂs a tough transition back.ÂŽ Mrs. Langford said. ÂIt has been a huge adjustment, he was almost a stranger to his kids. All I used to hear was ÂMom, Mom, Mom,Â but now there is the occasional ÂDadÂ.ÂŽ Now the boys and their father often go on bike rides together. ÂIt was like he had a bullÂs-eye, he kept getting injured,ÂŽ she said. ÂIt was scary. I couldnÂt fall apart, I had to keep it together because the boys had no one else.ÂŽ Her husband describes her as the backbone to his military career. Sgt. Langford enjoys spending time with other veterans on fishing trips and at other events. ÂIt makes me feel good that I get to take breaks and see other veterans,ÂŽ he said, Âbut theyÂre not family geared.ÂŽ For a man missing the company of his fellow soldiers but also trying to make up for lost time with his family, itÂs a difficult situation. Mrs. Langford recognizes the missing companions in her husbandÂs life. ÂThere are no Army friends nearby that he can relate to,ÂŽ she said. Before being medically discharged, Sgt. Langford spent several months recovering from post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction and depression. ÂThis was the low point in my career,ÂŽ he said. The MOPH connected Sgt. Langford to LifeWave pain patches, which have tremendously helped his remaining physical wounds; a piece of shrapnel from the grenade that caused his third injury still remains in his left thigh. The patches help control his pain without any prescription medications. The MOPH provided one of the first events the Langford family could attend together. The event, sponsored by Illus-trated Properties Charities and Life-Wave Florida, raised money to help Sgt. Langford and many other combat-wounded veterans. J.B. Haskins, the state adjutant for MOPH, has helped many wounded vet-erans in their transition back to civilian life. ÂFor returning veterans that have had substantial head injuries, the transition back to civilian life usually is not pleas-ant,ÂŽ he said. ÂI sit with Jonathan a couple times a week. WeÂve done some fundraising so we can help pay some of their monthly bills,ÂŽ said Mr. Haskins. Sgt. Langford recently learned that Veterans Affairs never received his paperwork, which he thought had been sent two years ago. As he continues to wait for aid from VA and other support agencies, Sgt. Langford is struggling financially. Living off partial retirement money and his wifeÂs part-time job has been difficult. Their mortgage-free home provided much-needed aid. ÂThe house is the most amazing thing that has happened,ÂŽ Mrs. Langford said. Sgt. Langford continues to search for a new way to provide for his family as his funds get sorted out. ÂWeÂre trying to do what we can to help him until we get everything through the VA,ÂŽ Mr. Haskins said. ÂWe have been helping him look for a job.ÂŽ Although both Sgt. Langford and his wife will admit the transition back to civilian life has been anything but smooth, they both have a positive out-look for the future. ÂIÂm making the best of it, and every day I continue healing and catching up on life. I just want to show life does go on,ÂŽ Sgt. Langford said. Three Purple Hearts did not prepare him for returning to civilian life after war, but his outstanding leadership and resilience will not let this task daunt him. He is well on his way to reestab-lishing himself into civilian and family life, this time as a hero. ÂI wouldnÂt change anything,ÂŽ he said, reflecting on his military career. ÂI love this country and I would do it all over again.ÂŽ Q Singer Island Rotarians honor member for service in Merchant Marines, NavyThe Rotary Club of Singer Island is saluting the veterans among its mem-bers for Veterans Day. Among the clubÂs veterans is a man who this summer turned 90. Harry Shipley was born on July 8, 1923, in Frederick, Md. He graduated from the Greenbriar Military School in Lewisburg, W.V., and then, as he said, ÂPearl Harbor happened.ÂŽ Mr. Shipley was appointed to the Merchant Marine Academy in Janu-ary 1942 as a Midshipman engineer. The Merchant Marines staffed the convoys that brought supplies to U.S. troops and allies. Sailing at a top speed of only 11 knots, they were prime targets for the enemy. Ocean crossings were treacherous. Mr. Shipley was on a ship sent to Mermansk, Russia, near the Arctic Circle. They were bringing much-needed supplies to the Soviets to help them fight Germany. Only half the convoy and escorts made it there. Previous ships had gotten stuck in the arctic ice and never returned. Anoth-er time, Mr. ShipleyÂs ship broke down in the Mediterranean returning home from Italy. Nearly an hour behind their convoy and with just one Naval destroyer for escort, they were the proverbial sitting ducks; they man-aged to catch up, and made it back to port safely. These convoy journeys usually consisted of 30-35 ships and about 10 escorts. Each crossing lasted about three months. Harry was aboard 18 convoy runs on five different ships over a three-year period. After World War II, Mr. Shipley served in the Navy for two years during the Korean War. In the Naval Reserve, he retired after 22 years of service as a Full Lt. Senior Grade. In 1944, Mr. Shipley got married, and after he completed his active duty, he worked as an engineer for PEPCO. While he was on a chance trip to Fort Lauderdale, Pratt & Whitney recruited the young engineer to test jet engines. The family moved to Palm Beach County. But even after retiring in 1987, Mr. Shipley never lost his love for the water. For 25 years, he participated in about 400 races with the Palm Beach Sail Club. He piloted the winningest sailboat in the clubÂs history. He transported six-figure boats, and has sailed to the Bahamas more than 25 times. With a twinkle in his bright blue eyes, Mr. Shipley is always proud to discuss his son, Matthew, Class of 1990 at Annapolis, recently retired as a SEAL Full Commander. The Rotary Club of Singer Island welcomes all veterans. They meet each Friday at noon at the Sailfish Marina, 98 Lake Drive, just south of Blue Heron Boulevard.

In that case, and after long and careful consideration, I spread ÂrumorÂŽ for only one reason, like foie gras or cream cheese or Nutella: to give my readers a richer under-standing of the world around them. Which is why I will now report a luscious little rumor coming out of Tallahassee. Preposterous as it sounds, Gov. Rick Scott may soon declare 2014 to be the official ÂRick Scott Year of Love!ÂŽ Apparently, he was baldly intimidated after learning late last week that helmet-haired challenger and centrist Charlie Crist, a real lover boy when it comes to politicking, has entered the race for governor. ÂWe will beat him with L ove,ÂŽ the governor is rumored to have ordered his senior staff. ÂWe will out-hug him, out-kiss-babies him, out stare-into-the-eyes-of-old-ladies him Â„ starting now, we will designate 2014 the ÂRick Scott Year of Love!ÂÂŽ If the rumor is true, itÂs an ironic position for this governor. He is, after all, the man who started his working life by opening a dough-nut shop in Kansas City. For those who miss the metaphorical irony there, let me explain: a doughnut is a circle of love with a big fat heartless hole in it. Gov. Scott is also the man whose healthcare company, Columbia/HCA, admitted to 14 felonies on his watch as an owner and CEO in the 1990s, including fraudulently billing Medicare, for which the company was fined more than $630 million by the U.S. government after its board forced him to step down. ThatÂs not very loving, either. But in the governorÂs defense, let me point out that people change (usually for the worse). Nowadays, Gov. Scott is proving to be one of the most Loving executive leaders weÂve ever placed in the state capitol. So the ÂRick Scott Year of LoveÂŽ makes perfect sense, to me Â„ and if the rumor isnÂt true, I think the governor should make it true. Here are three short reasons why: First, Rick ScottÂs Love of family. Second, Rick ScottÂs Love of people. And finally, Rick ScottÂs Love of country. LetÂs start with family.Not long after he won his first election by spending more than $75 million of his own money, Gov. Scott proposed a program to drug-test state employees, as many as 100,000 of them, along with welfare recipi-ents, all at $10 to $70 a pop for the companies that get to do the work. About 12 weeks earlier, he had transferred his prominent holdings in a private company that stood to do a good deal of that lucrative testing, Solantic, to his wife. Clearly, he must Love his wife a lot.He loves people, too, some of them. True, Gov. Scott eviscerated the Everglades restoration program that former Gov. Crist had modeled his administration on, kill-ing a deal that even the likes of U.S. Sugar was willing to make by selling its land (188,000 acres) to all of us taxpayers Â„ and no kid-ding, that would have saved the Everglades, which might be good for some people. In a single m ove, the plan would have cleaned up polluted water hosed into Lake Okeechobee from the north then dumped into the St. Lucie River on the east, the Caloo-sahatchee River on the west, the Atlantic Ocean off Stuart, the Gulf of Mexico off Sani-bel, and Florida Bay off of everything to the south of the Florida Peninsula and the United States of America. How? By (get this!) sending it southward where it used to flow, thus restoring sig-nificant health to those once fecund water systems for future generations. But the governor killed that plan out of Love for his people Â„ and his people are not future generations. His people are golfers. After all, politicians arenÂt elected by the unborn, who donÂt even have voter regis-tration cards yet. Instead, theyÂre elected by people who spend their lives trying to lower their golf handicaps and avoid drinking before noon. ItÂs all very well for people like Charlie Crist to go around worrying about future generations and kissing babies, but whoÂs going to Love golfers? Gov. Scott, thatÂs who. Golf is expensive, after all, and nobody drinks the water that keeps the back nine green, so who cares how clean it is? Let some other people spend their money on Everglades restoration, if they care about it so much. You know, someday. Which brings me to Gov. ScottÂs Love of country. Recently, after Gov. Scott first rejected the Affordable Care Act, he proved his Love of country by bravely refusing to accept fed-eral government money that is part of it Â„ money already paid into the U.S. government by Florida taxpayers. That money, in a program called Medicaid expansion, was set aside to medically insure people living below the poverty line in the Sunshine State, a cool million of them or so. In other words, Gov. Scott turned down $51 billion that would have been paid into Florida over the next 10 years, in a move sup-ported by the most conservative wing of the Republican Party in the state legislature. Along with Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford, the governor probably figured that all those little poÂ boys can just goÂƒ take care of themselves, to use a Loving euphe-mism. (Definition, poÂ boys: n., the really, really, really poor people, not just the very, very, very poor people.) After all, they always have, havenÂt they? The poÂ boys get sick and either 1., Go to the emergency room, or 2., Die. Either way, problem solved. By turning down that federal money, Gov. Scott showed his unparalleled Love of coun-try. He wanted to save the federal govern-ment $51 billion in Florida donations, and he by-God did. So, for all those reasons, I have brought this rumor to you, my readers. And I say spread it thick or thin, but spread it: 2014 may soon be designated ÂThe Rick Scott Year of Love.ÂŽ Q t a h c 1 C roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Overall, there were 27 leatherback nests, 1,160 logger-head nests, and 1,395 green sea turtle nests Â„ an increase of 587 total nests over 2012. The green sea turtle nest count for 2013 increased almost 515 percent over last year, when 227 green nests were recorded. Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, a Boca Raton-based facility, reported a record 1,177 total sea turtle nests on Boca Raton beaches, according to Kristin Child, envi-ronmental program coordinator. Boca Raton beaches had 12 leatherback nests, 834 loggerhead nests, one hawksbill nest, and 331 green nests. The 331 green nests recorded smashed the previous record of 154 nests set in 2011. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric AssociationÂs National Marine Fisheries Service estimates each green sea turtle nest in Florida contains approximately 135 eggs. Breeding populations of green sea turtles in Florida and on the Pacific coast of Mexico are listed as endangered by the Endangered Species Act. Sea turtle nesting season runs annually on FloridaÂs east coast from March 1 through Oct. 31, with loggerhead, leath-erback and green sea turtles nesting on local beaches with regularity. Loggerhead Marinelife Center, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center each reported unhatched nests remaining on the beach late into the season.

NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEA piece of the actionQ ÂFantasy sportsÂŽ are hugely popular, but when fans ÂdraftÂŽ players for their teams, they ÂownÂŽ only the play-ersÂ statistics. Recently, Wall Street and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs created Fantex Holdings, which will allow inves-tors to buy actual pieces of real play-ers Â„ namely, rights to 20 percent of the playerÂs lifetime earnings (includ-ing licensing and product endorsement deals). The firm told The New York Times in October that it will soon stage an ÂIPOÂŽ for budding NFL star Arian Foster and hopes to sign up many more athletes, plus singers and actors similarly early in their careers. (On the other hand, FantexÂs lawyers drew up a 37-page list of potential investment risks, such as inju-ries, slumps and scandals Â„ and the fact that the stock will trade only on FantexÂs private exchange.) Q Cultural diversityQ ÂFor Japanese boys, the train driver sits alongside footballer, doctor and policeman as a dream job,ÂŽ according to a September Agence France-Presse dispatch, and consequently, the system for the Tokyo metro area (covering 35 million people) runs with the Âprecision of a finely crafted Swiss watch,ÂŽ where delays, even for as long as a minute, seldom occur. (When they do occur, operators repeatedly apologize and hand out Ânotes from homeÂŽ to commuters to present to their bosses to excuse the tar-diness.) Among the systemÂs drawbacks is the still-irksome groping of females on packed rush-hour trains, when operators routinely shove as many as 300 riders into cars designed for 150. Q Among the surprising legacies of the oppressions of communist East Ger-many is modern-day GermanyÂs com-monplace Âclothing-optionalÂŽ lifestyle (FKK, or ÂFreikoerperkulturÂŽ Â„ free body culture). A September Global Post dispatch counted ÂhundredsÂŽ of FKK beaches across the country and refer-enced a turned-up snapshot (not yet authenticated) of a young Angela Merkel frolicking nude in the 1960s or 1970s. Foreigners occasionally undergo cul-ture shock at German hotelsÂ saunas and swimming pools, at which swimsuits are discouraged (as ÂunhygienicÂŽ). Q In December China joined only a handful of countries (and 29 U.S. states) by strengthening the rights of elderly parents to demand support from their adult children Â„ not only financially (which has been the law for more than a decade) but now allowing lawsuits by parents who feel emotionally ignored, as well. An October Associated Press feature on one rural extended family dramatized ChinaÂs cultural shift away from its proverbial Âfirst virtueÂŽ of fam-ily honor. Zhang Zefang, 94, said she did not even understand the concept of ÂlawsuitÂŽ when a local official explained it, but only that she deserved better from the children she had raised and who now allegedly resent her neediness. (A village court promptly ordered several family members to contribute support for Ms. Zefang.) Q Latest religious messagesQ Recent separate testings in 21 springs in Austria and 18 fonts in Vienna yielded a conclusion that 86 percent of the holy water in the countryÂs churches was not safe to drink Â„ most commonly infected with diarrhea-causing E.coli and Campy-lobacter. University of Vienna research-ers found samples with up to 62 million bacteria per milliliter of water, and the busier the church, the higher the count.Q Various studies show ÂchurchgoersÂŽ to be happier, more optimistic and healthier than other people, leading some atheists and agnostics to wonder whether the church experience could be fruitfully replicated but minus the belief in God. Hence, the ÂSunday AssemblyÂŽ was creat-ed in London, and has now spread to New York City and Melbourne, Australia, with 18 other hoped-for openings by yearÂs end, according to a September report in The Week. Founders seek such benefits as Âa sense of community,ÂŽ Âa thought-pro-voking (secular) sermon,ÂŽ Âgroup sing-ingÂŽ and an Âethos of self-improvement,ÂŽ exemplified by the motto Âlive better, help often, wonder more,ÂŽ and they hope that eventually Sunday Assembly will orga-nize Sunday school, weddings, funerals and Ânon-religious baptisms.ÂŽ Q First Things First: An alleged drug ring in the Brooklyn, N.Y., neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay was busted in September after police cracked a stream of Internet messages offering heroin (called ÂDOBÂŽ) and cocaine (Âwhite girlÂŽ). Among the messages was one sent at 6:45 one Friday evening advising customers that they had Â45 minutesÂŽ to get their orders in for the weekend because the sellers would obedi-ently shut down at 7:30 (i.e., sundown) for the Jewish sabbath. Q Questionable judgmentsQ Los Angeles Animal Services has proposed that the city be established as a Sanctuary City of Feral Cats and that cats should be an exception to property ownersÂ right to evict animals causing damage. Under the L.A. City Feral Cat Program, reported OpposingViews.com, felines Âwill gain an inherent rightÂŽ to be on residential or commercial prop-erty. Animal Services believes that an enhanced spaying program will elimi-nate most feral-cat problems, including somehow their toileting excesses and their killing of neighborhood songbirds.Q ÂYou hired a convicted prostitute and thief to handle state money?ÂŽ asked an incredulous Connecticut state legisla-tor in September when he learned that Suki Handly had been employed from 2008 to 2012 passing out welfare benefits in the stateÂs Manchester distribution center and that $44,000 was missing. Fur-thermore, Ms. Handly and two others had been found guilty of theft in Connecticut in 2010, yet word of her prostitution and 2010 convictions was not known to state investigators until a chance audit in 2012. (State hiring offices of course promised to strengthen background checks.) Q

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League seeks donations through endowment fund SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDuring just one year Â… 2012 Â… Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League helped nearly 24,000 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies. That included sheltering more than 4,000 injured and homeless ani-mals, placing more than 3,200 animals in loving homes, and giving medical services to nearly 17,000 animals. Multiply those numbers by 87 years and you will understand the impact Peggy Adams Ani-mal Rescue League has had on countless animals in Palm Beach County. Knowing that there will always be the need to help animals, the Rescue League took a big step to ensure that its cause will be sustained. In August, they estab-lished a new agency endowment fund at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Their fund Â… The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Endowment Fund Â… is a perma-nent, self-sustaining source of funding that will support all the services they provide to animals, forever. ÂWe are excited to be partnering with the Community Foundation in creating this permanent fund for the benefit of the animals of Palm Beach County,ÂŽ Rich Anderson, the LeagueÂs executive director and CEO, said in a prepared statement. ÂPeggy Adams Animal Res-cue League has been committed to the welfare of our communityÂs pets for nearly 90 years, and we are committed to always being here for them. This new endowment fund will give members of the community an opportunity to help make that possible.ÂŽ Agency endowment funds provide a stable, predictable source of income for nonprofit organizations and are a testament to the organiza-tionÂs plan to sustain itself. The Community Founda-tion manages funds per-manently endowed by donors for the benefit of a specific charitable cause. In the case of agency endowments, the cause is the organi-zation itself. This permanent pool of assets generates income and grows over time and, similar to a personal savings, can provide a relative source of income. ÂEstablishing an endowment with the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties will help ensure Peggy Adams Animal Rescue LeagueÂs ability to serve the community well into the future,ÂŽ Brad Hurlburt, president of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, said in a prepared statement. ÂWe are thrilled to partner with such a well-respected and effective organization that has served our area since 1925.ÂŽ For information contact Ken Okel at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League at 472-8845.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 NEWS A19 KOVEL: ANTIQUESFish are just the dressing on a stylish aquarium BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyKeeping fish in an aquarium is said to be one of the top hobbies in the United States today. Some enthusiasts search for antique-looking aquariums that fit with room styles from the past. It was not a hobby for an average householder until the 1830s, when the Wardian case was created as a simple container for live fish. By the opening of the Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851 in London, aquariums were wonders suitable for a home, and two years later the London Zoo built a large aquarium open to the public. The United States had enough people interested in raising fish indoors to form an Âaquarist societyÂŽ by 1843, and fish became part of a full-blown fad by the 1860s. Of course, that meant there were things to collect Â„ an aquarium and equipment Â„ like pumps and fil-ters, rocks, small figures and scenery for the fish tank. Decorators planned rooms with planters and aquariums in the pre-vailing styles of the time, from Victorian to Mission to Art Deco to modern. Old tanks made of wrought iron and glass, tanks bordered by heavy Mission-style oak planks, glass bowls held in wicker stands, and Art Deco designs using plastic instead of glass are sometimes found at antiques sales. And the small glass fishbowl for guppies or goldfish so popular in the 1950s still is avail-able. Recently, a Deco aquarium made of wrought iron vines and leaves, and a clear, slightly green glass bowl was sold for $805. It had a light at the top and a holder for a large potted plant at the bottom. ItÂs probably the focal point of a room today. Q: My great aunt gave my mother a pretty porcelain bowl decorated with hand-painted acorns and leaves. It is marked ÂElite L FranceÂŽ on the bottom. IÂm now 90 years old, so the bowl must be very old. Does it have any value? A: The mark ÂElite L [for Limoges] FranceÂŽ was used by Bawo & Dotter, an importer established in New York City in the mid 1860s. Bawo & Dotter founded a decorating studio in Fischern, Bohemia (presently Rybare, Czech Republic), in 1883 and was manufacturing porcelain in Limoges, France, by 1893. Bawo & DotterÂs ÂEliteÂŽ china was exhibited at the 1893 WorldÂs Fair in Chicago. The company closed in about 1914. Your bowl, probably made to hold nuts, is worth about $50-$100. Q: I have a number of chairs, in varying condition, that were once used in the board room of the Bank of Stockton in Stockton, Calif. A paper label on the bottom of the chairs says ÂJacob & Josef Kohn, Wien.ÂŽ Can you tell me something about this maker? A: In 1849 Jacob Kohn and his son, Josef, of Vienna (Wien), Austria, founded a company that made wooden parts for buildings. The company began making furniture in about 1867 and eventually established factories in several cities. The Kohns manufactured bentwood chairs similar to those made by Thonet. The KohnsÂ company merged with Mundus in 1914 and the name became Kohn-Mun-dus, so your chairs were probably made before 1914. Kohn-Mundus merged with Thonet in 1922. Q: We have a Westmoreland milk glass wedding bowl that was given to us on our wedding day in 1954. I have displayed it in a curio cabi-net ever since. I also have a set of Milburn Rose ster-ling silver flatware made by Westmorland Sterling. Is there a connection between the wedding bowl and my sterling? A: There is no connection between the company that made your milk glass wedding bowl and the company that made your sterling silver. Although the names of the companies are simi-lar, they are spelled differently. Westmoreland Glass Co. was in business in Grapeville, Pa., from 1889 to 1984. Westmorland Sterling Co. was founded in 1940 to provide jobs for former alumi-num workers, since most aluminum was needed for the war effort. The silver was made by Wallace Silversmiths, marketed by Wearever Aluminum, and sold by door-to-door salesmen. Milburn Rose is one of five patterns made by Westmor-land Sterling Co. In 1966 Wallace took over the marketing of the flatware and it became available in retail stores. Tip: Keep silver, sterling or plated, out of humid storage areas. The ideal humidity for silver is 45 percent to 40 percent. You can keep small pieces in a glassed-in cupboard with anti-tarnish paper or camphor balls (moth balls). Big pieces can be kept in tarnish-preventing bags found at department and jewelry stores or online. Q Â„ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Were you able to finish every question? HowÂd the reading comprehensions go?ÂŽ Jessie didnÂt know how to tell her mother sheÂd panicked and didnÂt have enough time to tackle the last section on the test. Mom would act like she was supportive, but Jessie knew both her parents were too caught up in the college admissions process to pay attention to her fears. YouÂd think THEY were the ones applying. Dad had been furious when sheÂd announced she was quitting the tennis team. Jessie had tried to explain how overwhelmed she was with the AP coursework. When sheÂd added that she was on the verge of a breakdown, keeping up with the pressures of the tennis team and editing the yearbook, while tackling everything else, Dad thought she was being overly dramatic. Her parents had no clue what she was going through, and sometimes she wondered if they even cared.Parents: Does the story above hit close to home? Do we listen carefully, if our children try to tell us theyÂve reached their lim-its? Do we sometimes get so caught up in our own agendas we lose sight of whatÂs truly important, when it comes to rais-ing our children? An article in the most recent issue of Psychology Today magazine by Dr. Suniya Luther highlights the pressures facing young people and their parents. Dr. Luther reports how she originally began her research, studying the pro-tracted stress and social, emotional and behavioral problems of inner-city teens. What she didnÂt anticipate was the serious levels of maladjustment in the control group, comprised of young people from communities dominated by white-collar, well-educated parents. These were the Âyouth en route to the most prestigious universities and well-paying high status careers in America,ÂŽ coming from families with incomes in excess of $150,000. Dr. Luther was alarmed to report that the affluent teens fared significantly more poorly than their inner-city coun-terparts in all areas of substance abuse, including hard drugs. Other researchers have since corroborated these findings of high alcohol use, binge drinking and marijuana use. Dr. LutherÂs studies found that widespread cheating and random acts of delinquency, such as stealing from parents or peers, are more common among the rich. But, thatÂs not all. The studies repeatedly showed that serious levels of depression, anxiety and somatic symp-toms occurred twice as often, or more, among this study group compared to national rates. Sadly, there was repeat-ed evidence that privileged young are much more vulnerable today than in previous generations. There are many factors that impact a young personÂs resilience and emo-tional stability, including genetics, the personÂs basic temperament, family and peer pressures to name but a few. While parents play a large role in the shaping of a young personÂs self esteem and ego functioning, they cannot be held solely responsible. After a decade of research, Dr. Luther concludes that Âall evidence points to one key cause underlying the different disturbances documented: pressure for high-octane achievement.ÂŽ She notes that youths in high achieving environ-ments are constantly gauging where they stand relative to others in the intense competition for distinction. They may experience intense envy of peers they believe have surpassed them in popularity, attractiveness, academics or sports. LutherÂs studies showed that a sense of pressure, criticism and overly high expectations from adults Â„ not only parents, but coaches, teachers and tutors Â„ contributed to the risk factors. For many young people, there is exces-sive competition, a perceived necessity to display effortless perfection, and a fear of showing vulnerabilities. ÂThe fallout? Failure can bring a rush of self-blame, shame and depression.ÂŽ So many of us, as parents, are overloaded with our own hectic work sched-ules, and pressured social and financial demands. We may be struggling to hold it together ourselves, and donÂt have much left over to give our children. But despite it all, we must demonstrate to our children that they matter as indi-viduals, and they can trust us and count on us. We must listen to their concerns and be diligent for signs of stress and overload. We can reassure them we love them for their uniqueness and special qualities. We can celebrate their best efforts, and show less emphasis on the Âfinal o utcome.ÂŽ As Luther points out, Âparents can, and must, play a central role in mitigat-ing pressures on children. They are, after all, the immediate buffers of the culture, with great power to help chil-dren remain grounded in a value system that emphasizes decency and kindness as much as getting ahead. The impor-tance of this task is paralleled by its difficulty: It takes an enormous amount of strength to be a lone parental voice amidst a community crescendo of ÂDo more.Â ÂŽ Q HEALTHY LIVING t i o t i linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com

Answer: Loss of facial volume is a major contributor to the lines and contours that are associated with looking older. Facial fillers (aka dermal fillers) have been a great way to replace lost volume and with physicians using them for many years now, we know this non-invasive technique is very safe. I routinely use Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm Ultra. These are used in various places on the face with advantages and disadvantages for each product. Common applications are to place fillers below lines around the nose and mouth. More advanced techniques seek to change facial geometry. An inverted triangle with the cheeks as the widest part tapering to the chin is thought to be a powerful look of youth, femininity and beauty. Fillers are placed in deeper levels below the skin to build up the cheeks under the eyes across to the cheekbones and a new filler has been introduced specifically for this purpose. The name of this new product is Juvederm Voluma. It was recently approved by the FDA and is the first filler specifically approved for replacing volume in the cheeks. It does fill a void in materials currently available for cheek augmentation since it is reversible, has numbing medicine mixed into it and may last up-to 18 months with no down time. Extensive trials have demonstrated the productÂ’s safety and I will be offering Juvederm Voluma in the near future. To see if this or other fillers are right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: Do I still get Novocain if I use sedation? Answer: First, before we can answer this question, we need to redefine the word Novocain. Novocain is the name of a type of dental anesthetic, just like Kleenex is the name of a facial tissue. These are propri-etary eponyms and were once brand names of products. Now, these words are used to describe a whole group of products, regard-less of the brand name. Another example is the company Xerox, which now is used to refer to photocopying. Injectable Novocain is no longer used in dentistry due to all the allergic reactions. So the question should be Â— Do I still get a dental anesthetic if I use sedation? Sorry to say, the answer is yes. However, the level of sedation you choose will result in the amount of awareness you have. So, if you choose IV sedation, you may never remember the experience of the injec-tion during your procedure. If you are lightly sedated with an oral medication, you may just not care. Whichever type of sedation you choose, once the procedure is over, you will then be aware of the numbness brought about by the dental anesthetic. Jay L.

ThatÂs because knowing oneÂs calorie needs can be a double-edged sword, says Cassie R owe, who worked on the survey as a graduate student and is now a study coordinator at UFÂs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. ÂOn one hand, it may allow people to balance energy intake with physical activity to manage their weight,ÂŽ Ms. Rowe says. ÂOn the other hand, I think most Americans get bogged down by the numbers. In this respect, knowing your calorie needs may lead to unnecessary stress surrounding counting calories.ÂŽ Calorie postings on restaurant menu boards were an impetus for the study, she says, adding, ÂDo people even know what they mean? Are they going to have any context?ÂŽ Researchers surveyed 978 people of varying heights and weights from a cross-section of demographic groups, mostly on the UF campus. The survey found that people of all body mass indexes underestimate their daily ener-gy requirements. Graduate students in the masterÂs dietetic internship program in UFÂs Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition conducted the survey as a class project for their professor, Bobbi Langkamp-Henken. The survey, con-ducted in early 2011, is published in the current issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior. Survey respondents answered 10 questions, including their height, weight and level of exercise. Based on those answers, researchers calculated how many calories the respondents needed daily, the research paperÂs lead author, Lauren Headrick, says. SheÂs now state coordinator for FloridaÂs Farm to School Partnership. ÂWhat was so interesting in our study is, people underestimated their needs across the board, showing a clear lack of knowledge surrounding calories,ÂŽ Ms. Headrick says. HereÂs an example of the surveyÂs results: Most people who need, for example, 2,000 calories a day, think they should only consume 1,500. This finding gives dietitians pause, Ms. Langkamp-Henken says, because if people learn their actual caloric needs are higher than they thought, they might be tempted to eat more than they nor-mally would. On the nutrition facts panel of all food labels, the standard is 2,000 cal-ories a day, although an individualÂs needs can be different, depending on their age, size and exercise habits. To the researchersÂ surprise, they noted that people who are obese under-estimated their caloric needs the most. But Ms. Langkamp-Henken offers a possible explanation: ÂIf they underestimate how much they need, itÂs probably because theyÂve tried dieting in the past and gotten dis-couraged and realize it takes a whole lot of restriction of your intake to lose some weight.ÂŽ Q Â“What was so interesting in our study is, people underestimated their needs across the board, showing a clear lack of knowledge surrounding calories.Â” Â– Lauren Headrick

T is for Table.That much we knew.But T also could be for Taddei, as in the Vietri artisan Alessandro Taddei, who comes to Palm Beach Gardens on Nov. 8 to sign pottery. Mr. Taddei, the designer behind such collections as Old St. Nick, Blu Bianco, Blu Mare, Dei Medici, Cortona, Fish-Fish and Toscana for the Italian firm Vietri, will spend an afternoon at T is for Table at PGA Commons. Vietri says it is AmericaÂs largest importer of handcrafted Italian ceram-ics, drink ware, flatware, table linens and accessories for the home and garden And the storeÂs owner, Michele Trzuskowski, couldnÂt be more excited. ÂObviously, itÂs a privilege. Their line is such a unique line,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs a privilege because he is one of their mas-ter artisans, and IÂm looking forward to meeting him.ÂŽ Ms. TrzuskowskiÂs store is known for its displays of casual and elegant tableware. This is just in time for the holidays, and lucky for Ms. Trzuskowski, Mr. Taddei is the creator of VietriÂs popular Old St. Nick collection. ÂIÂve had a lot of people to preorder to have it signed. WeÂre offering a discount of 15 percent off of the line, and weÂre offering gifts with purchase on the day of the event,ÂŽ she said. The Old Saint Nick line is a charmer, with St. NicholasÂ face adorning plates, the tip of his cap forming the handles of cups and mugs. ÂOf all the holiday lines, I find this is one that people are most attracted to. ItÂs whimsical enough for kids but sophis-ticated enough for adults,ÂŽ Ms. Trzus-kowski said. Some customers are banking on whimsy.ÂI have someone who has bought a whole bunch of ornaments for him to sign,ÂŽ Ms. Trzus-kowski said. ÂHeÂll personalize them with Italian sayings. We have a list of Italian sayings from which to choose.ÂŽ What? You donÂt speak Italian? ÂWeÂll include a gift card with each piece that he signs to translate what heÂs written in Italian for them,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Trzuskowski said she has been in business for about 12 years, first at Abacoa. For the past decade, she has had her space at PGA Commons, and during that time, she has seen the market shift from more formal settings to more casual lines. ÂItÂs more of the patterns like Vietri that can be dressed up,ÂŽ she said. And despite that trend toward more casual, Vietri is one dinnerware line that has continued to grow. ÂThey offer all different price points and all different styles, traditional or contem-porary,ÂŽ she said. In other words, the company offers something for everyone. And it doesnÂt hurt having someone like Mr. Taddei com-ing to visit T is for Table. In fact, itÂs a bit of a coup for the shop. ÂI have had some of the junior artisans here, but itÂs been about four years,ÂŽ she said. ÂFrom what I understand, heÂs very charismatic.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 BUSINESS A23 Investors mistime and consistently misallocate Bull markets and bear markets have a way of changing the individual investorÂs best-laid plans for portfolio allocations. In fact, research proves that individual investors are terrible at making invest-ment decisions: they capitulate/sell when already in a bear market and they chase performance in a bull market. In doing so, they wrongly rebalance asset classes within their portfolios at exactly the worst possible times. Individual investors understand the profit premise: ÂBuy low, sell high.ÂŽ Unfortunately, an investorÂs understanding of such does not mean that his or her behavior is in sync. Behavior often is dominated by emotions of greed and fear in bull and bear markets, respectively. Most often effected is the converse of the maxim; the investor proceeds to buy into the market peak (as the investor has a feeling of confidence based on historical gains of the bull) and to sell into market lows (as the investors has a feeling of despair, confusion, or just downright panic based on recent losses of the bear). The poor decision making of investors has been studied by the highly regarded and independent research group, DALBAR. DALBAR analyzed historical purchase and sale patterns and found that: ÂÂƒ inves-tors Âmove their money in and out of the market at the wrong times,ÂÂŽ according to Louis Harvey, president of DALBAR. They get excited or they panic, and they hurt themselves.ÂŽ (March 11, 2013, MONEY NEWS, ÂDALBARÂs Harvey: Individual Investors Brilliant at Mistiming Markets.ÂŽ) How much do they hurt themselves? ÂA DALBAR study of the last 20 years shows that investors in U.S. stock mutual funds earned an average annualized return of 4.25 percent during that period, while the Standard & PoorÂs 500 stock index gener-ated an 8.21 percent return.ÂŽ Some underperformance was attributable to fees but the preponderance of explanation is that individual investors are notorious for exactly mistiming the market in equities Â„ markets in general. It stands to reason that if investors are buying equities at market peaks, then they are selling out of some other asset class in order to create investable funds; converse-ly, if they are dumping equities at market lows, then they are taking proceeds and buying into another class, typically bonds. The poor decision-making of investors has also been studied by mutual funds. In fact, a white paper by Vanguard affirms that individual investors wrongly time equities and bonds for entry and exit. ÂMany (investors) are influenced by capital market performance; this is often evident in market cash flows mirroring what appears to be an emotional response Â„ fear or greed Â„ rather than a rational one.ÂŽ Investors also can be moved to act by fund advertisements that tout recent outperformance, as if the investor could somehow inherit those historical returns, despite disclaimers stating that past performance Âis not a guarantee of future results.ÂŽ (Vanguard, ÂAdvisorÂs Alpha,ÂŽ April 22, 2013) VanguardÂs historical studies of mutual fund net cash flows show that, ÂÂƒ after protracted periods of relative outperfor-mance (in one asset class), sizable cash flows tend to follow (into that asset class).ÂŽ The data showed that the peak of equity cycles saw large equity inflows; at the trough of the equity declines, equities are exited and there are large bond inflows. Here are some examples of classic investment wrongdoing. Q In 1999, near the equity market peak, there was a net inflow of $160 billion into equity funds and a net outflow of $2 billion out of bond funds; in 2000, there was a net inflow of $262 billion into equities and $48 billion out of bonds. In 2001, during the severe equity correction, there was only $70 billion net cash flow into equity funds and $81 billion into bond funds. Q In 2006 through 2007, there was $464 billion put into equity funds and $182 billion into bond funds. Q In the period 2009 through 2012, there was $140 billion put into equities and a jaw-dropping $790 billion put into bond funds. How can any investor expect to outperform or just even perform as well as market averages if he buys high and sells low? Answer: He canÂt. It is a loserÂs game. If investors mistime equities and bonds, might they also mistime other classes, including hedge funds, private equity, real estate, managed futures? Most probably so, as these asset classes are not currently making headlines as the ÂhotÂŽ asset class. Instead of making another ill-timed reallocation, the individual investor should heed the counsel of DALBARÂs president: ÂThe most important thing, once you have a strategy is to find a way to actually stick with itÂŽ (MONEY NEWS). What investors should really be considering is adding to their position in lacklus-ter asset classes in order to rebalance their portfolios. The next time that you consider rebalancing your portfolio to more heav-ily weight into a bull market, think about whether you are behaving as a typical individual investor who wants to be riding the winning horse. Jumping from one winning horse to the next generally results in falling off the horse. Consult your adviser as to the suitability of these ideas and consult investment specialists for counsel on specific asset classes.

What a summer it has been in the South Florida real estate market. Prices are up, inventory is down and we are continuing to see the upswing across the board for all types of real estate. It seems as if the typical Âselling seasonÂŽ of the past is sl owly fa ding away and our area is becoming more and more of a year-round destination Â„ not only for buyers and sellers, but also for residents. That being said, we are still home to many luxury buyers who are now back for the ÂseasonÂŽ and will be looking for their place to call home in South Florida. ItÂs usually this time of year that luxury buyers come back looking for sea-sonal homes and luxury sellers decide to put their homes on the market for sale. And with prices rising and inven-tory declining, what exactly do luxury buyers want in a home? According to a recent survey completed by Better Homes and Gardens maga-zine, 75 percent of luxury homebuyers believe homeownership is a sounder investment than the stock market. And 57 percent say homeownership is a bigger indicator of success than their job or title. The article also indicated that luxury buyers want more than one home. This describes the majority of the clients I work with. They have multiple residences all over the world and they typically prefer to own homes with dif-ferent lifestyles attached to them. One may be a ski home, another a beach home and another a city apartment. They usually own them in areas that are easy to travel to and require a small amount of travel time from the airport to their different destinations. More and more I am seeing clients willing to sacrifice a large amount of square footage for better amenities and upgrades in their homes. They would rather have the top-of-the-line designer kitchen versus an extra bedroom. They are looking for home automation sys-tems such as Crestron where they can control the temperature, security and lighting of their home from miles away and even access it on their iPhones or smartphone devices. This is also apparent from the same survey that indicated 68 percent of lux-ury buyers have more of an interest in having a Âsmart homeÂŽ versus a ÂgreenÂŽ home. And 87 percent said they would not even consider purchasing a home that wasnÂt tech friendly. This should be a note to self Â„ if you are not consider-ing a move in the near future, do not be afraid to invest in new technology for your home. You will more than likely get your investment back when you decide to sell your home at a later date. Probably one of the most sought after and important features for a luxury buyer is the design and features of out-door space. As we know, South Florida is an area that residents and visitors like to spend time outdoors. The amenities are extremely important. Buyers like the outside of a home to be the continuation of the inside of the home. Pools, spas, outdoor summer kitchens, fireplaces, fire pits and large covered spaces with comfortable furniture and eating areas are all added bonuses. To some, it is a must when purchasing a home. Even with all of the internet options and websites available for real estate, the luxury buyers still look to their agent for guidance and better insight into the buying and selling process. After all, we are the professionals and we are working daily in the field; touch-ing, feeling and negotiating the real estate market. This cannot be done on the internet alone. My clients and many others rely on me to update them when new homes come on the market, advise them of the competition and update them with the trends in the marketplace. All while supporting their best interests through-out the buying process. I need to be educated in all of the areas I have mentioned. It is necessary to not only be able to know about the features a luxury buyer is looking for, but also to understand these features to help each of my clients choose the best property that fits their specific needs on all levels.

ÂThey got me, of course, a garden hat. Then they got me a Sherlock Holmes hat because IÂm always the one that finds anything thatÂs lost. ÂI canÂt find it. I canÂt find it.Â ÂHang on, hang on.Â And so they also got me a nurseÂs hat for my unsolicited medi-cal advice, and they got a very color-ful witchÂs hat for when IÂm having one of those days. And a firemanÂs hat because IÂm always having to put out fires. It was really sweet and very funny and each came with its own tag.ÂŽ The gift of hats was totally appropriate for Ms. Palmieri, executive director of the museum, who performs all those tasks and more at the gar-dens, once home to Norton Museum of Art founder Ralph Norton and his wife, sculptor Ann Vaughn Weaver Norton. It also speaks to the quality of the place. ItÂs an intimate space, with just a handful of employees. The annual Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens offers a serene showcase for the artistÂ’s life work.

One of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach CountyÂs top events, the Dec. 7 boat parade also is part of the 14th Annual ÂOn the WaterÂŽ Toys for Tots Drive. Become a participant by entering your boat in the parade through Dec. 3. The parade will start at the north end of the Lake Worth Lagoon, south of Old Port Cove Marina, and proceed north to the Jupiter Lighthouse. Spec-tators will line up to watch the procession of decorated vessels sparkling on the Intracoastal Waterway beneath a backdrop of Zambelli Fireworks. Boats will be judged by local elected officials and community leaders at North Palm Beach Marina Dec. 7. Judg-ing is based on three factors: lights, enthusiasm and overall effect. The top three boats in each size category, including corporate entries, will win a total of $10,000 in cash and prizes. The overall winning boat with the most points is named ÂBest of ParadeÂŽ and receives $500 cash, prizes and more. An awards ceremony will take place at the Hilton Singer Island on Dec. 11. The Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade benefits the U.S. Marine Reserves Toys for Tots Program. Last year, the MIAPBC collected 18,000 toys for needy children in Palm Beach County.

When I recently told a group of girlfriends about Tinder Â„ the dating app that lets you scroll through singles in the area Â„ they asked over dinner if IÂd met anyone new. ÂMe? On Tinder?ÂŽ I said. ÂLadies, please. IÂve never tried it.ÂŽ They gave me a collective exasperated look. ÂWhat are you waiting for?ÂŽ one asked. What was I waiting for? Tinder is ridiculously low-commitment. The app uses your Facebook profile pic-ture Â„ a photo thatÂs already public Â„ and you scroll through singles as easily as you might flip through real estate. The only way to know if someone likes you is if you both give each other the thumbs-up. From there, you have the option to start chatting online. The only part that felt threatening was actually putting myself out there. ÂGo ahead,ÂŽ one of my friends dared me. So I pulled out my phone, logged in for the first time and tumbled down the Tinder rabbit hole. It was fascinating. And addictive. And perhaps the best thing to hap-pen to dating since birth control. By the end of dinner I had five matches, and by the end of the night I was chatting with three of them. I canÂt remember ever having such a good haul. I felt like IÂd stepped into a singles bar where all the awkward-ness of first introductions had been stripped away. The conversations flowed naturally and there was none of the hyper-sexual weirdness I had anticipated. In fact, almost every conversation followed the same format: Where are you from? What brought you to the area? What do you do for a living? Not surprisingly, these are exactly the questions youÂd ask if you met face-to-face. For someone like me, who is a touch quiet on first meet-ing, the typed conversation let me relax and open up. I was warmer on Tinder than IÂve ever been on a first date. Interestingly, you can still tell a lot about a person from an online conversation. Each of the men I chatted with had his own distinct voice Â„ Cuban Etien was chatty, flirtatious and sweet; public defender Brian was inquisitive and to-the-point; Ryan, who I never got far enough with for any identifiers, was too pretentious for my taste. They were, in short, an accurate rep-re-sentation of the datable male population. I understand that nobodyÂs per-fect, and Tinder cer-tainly has its flaws. Age, for one. Most of the peo-ple on there skew young Â„ some used their prom pictures as their profile pho-tos. I had to scroll through a lot of men under 25 to find any in their 30s. Tinder also is a little too low-commitment. Conversations stop and start based on when peo-ple are on their phones, so nailing down any sort of date can take days. And thereÂs always the possi-bility that the people youÂre chat-ting with are not actu-ally who they say they are. But hiccups aside, Tinder sure is a good time. Maybe IÂll see you on there.

Hundreds of CityPlace fans will celebrate at the annual tree lighting and first snow-fall of the season Â„ a festival held on the CityPlace plaza in downtown West Palm Beach. This event is free and open to the public. The ÂWinter WonderlandÂŽ show will kick off with a holiday concert by the childrenÂs choir from Kings Academy West Palm Beach, followed by a per-formance from Dance South Florida featuring Top 40 hits, pop dancers and an acrobatic act. The grand finale of the program is the lighting of the 40-foot Christmas tree and illumination of the European-inspired holiday dcor, fol-lowed by the seasonÂs first ÂsnowfallÂŽ in CityPlace. Before the ceremony at 6 p.m., celebrations will begin with events for families to enjoy with magicians, stilt walkers, and living statues, as well as a routine by the Miami DolphinÂs and Fins Force cheerleading team. Children can visit Santa inside of MacyÂs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Other festivities throughout the season include live holiday music by local bands and choirs, and train rides that will continue to run throughout the end of the year. Nightly snowfalls will con-tinue throughout the holidays at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; and at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thurs-day through Sunday, Dec. 31. If it were to accumulate, the amount of snow to fall in CityPlace over the holidays is predicted to be well over 36 inches Â„ more snow than Central Park in New York City receives per square foot. The snow effect used at CityPlace is one of the most technically advanced special effect methods available today and more importantly, one of the most realistic. It reacts just like real snow, with no two snowflakes alike. CityPlaceÂs holiday train will be open throughout the season, too. Hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Thursday; 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday. MacyÂs opens in CityPlace at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening. A real snow day will be 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30. Entertainment will continue on the plaza as CityPlace commemorates the start of Hanukkah with the lighting of the propertyÂs menorah at 5 p.m. in partnership with Temple Israel of Palm Beach.

budget for the privately held trust that owns and manages the gardens is between $400,000 and $500,000 Â„ less than 10 percent of the Norton Museum of ArtÂs annual $8 million budget. Ralph Norton made his fortune in the steel industry and retired to West Palm Beach in 1939 with his first wife, Eliza-beth Calhoun Norton. But their home, several blocks south of the Norton Museum, is compara-tively small Â„ a 1925 home that was revamped by Marion Sims Wyeth, architect of the museumÂs original building. It sits on about two acres along the Intracoast-al Waterway, with views of Palm Beach. But the space is not about the house, or even about the first Mrs. Norton, who died in 1947. Rather, it is about the second Mrs. Norton, artist Ann Norton, who transformed the space into an oasis of 20th-century sculpture amid a garden of rare palms and other plants. Ms. Palmieri is an eager guide.The day of this particular visit, student groups pour in and out of the space. Teens have their lunch on a patio along the north side of the house between the dwelling and a sanctuary of sorts Â„ Mrs. NortonÂs studio.In the gardensMr. Palmeiri breezes past the kids and into the gardens. ÂWhen I came here, Veronica Boswell Butler had been the garden consultant for 20 years,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. ÂIt was like walking with a Zen monk through the garden and she would explain to me how to see things and how to look at things and what to watch for and how to temper what seems like an easy choice with what are the principles.ÂŽ Ms. Butler was a mentor.ÂWe would look at, together, how do we view the sculpture? Is the sculpture still there? ÂBoz, as we call her affectionately, is very knowledgeable about art as well,ÂŽ she said. ÂShe really was the second person to take over the garden. The first was Sir Peter Smithers.ÂŽ Sir Peter had worked with Ann Norton in designing the gardens, a wild space from which Mrs. NortonÂs sculp-tures seem to grown organically. Under Ms. Butler and Sir PeterÂs guidance, the gardens grew, thanks to contributions from regional and inter-national palm and cycad societies, to a collection of 300 species of tropical palms. Ms. Palmieri paused to sit on a bench. ÂWe quietly hid plants in here. This is one that could hide no more,ÂŽ she said, pointing to a large cycad. ÂI was out clipping things and I was, ÂIÂm going to free this plant.Â But I had no idea how truly big it was.ÂŽ The plant, a rarity from Congo, is enormous, but its round edges under-score the heavenward ascent of one of Mrs. NortonÂs so-called ÂgatewayÂŽ sculptures that dot the landscape. One of her gateways is quite elaborate, with openings throughout, and with rounded bottoms and cantilevered edges. ÂReally, if you stand here and look through this, youÂre almost looking at another time,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. That gateway sculpture is one of nine monumental works by Mrs. Norton; eight are in brick and one is in granite. Enter the gardens from the house, walking past the pool and beyond the huge Sphinx-like Cubist-style brick sculpture east of the house and youÂre greeted by ÂSeven Figures,ÂŽ sculptures of 12-foot-tall ghostly ÂbeingsÂŽ staring blankly in several directions. Inside, the house, there are hundreds of drawings, models and smaller works; an archive housed in the former maidÂs quarters literally swells with works that have not yet been seen. Mrs. Norton was born in 1905 in Selma, Ala., and moved to New York to study at the National Academy of Design, Arts Student League of New York and Cooper Union. She studied with artists John Hovannes, Leon Kroll, Jose de Creft and worked as studio assistant to Alexander Archipenko. She came to West Palm Beach in 1942 to teach at the newly founded Norton Art School. After Elizabeth Norton died, Ann Weaver began a relationship with Mr. Norton and they were married. But that marriage was short-lived; he died unexpectedly in 1953. ÂWhen Mr. Norton died, there were many letters that talked about, ÂWhat do you want to do, Ann?ÂÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. After all, the house had not been left to her, but was part of the estate. Mr. Norton had left money for Mrs. Norton to buy another home, but she chose this one and remained there until her death in 1982. ÂShe had too much fallen in love with this space,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. She said Christina Orr-Cahall, who later became director of the Norton Museum of Art, would come to visit and said Mrs. Norton would stop work-ing just to spend 20 minutes watching the birds. Mr. Norton had built a studio for his wife in Chicago. But the one in West Palm Beach was special. ÂIn fact, I know it was, or she wouldnÂt have begun the ÂSeven Fig-uresÂ Â„ there were only going to be three Â„ and were an homage to Mr. Norton, so I think staying here was always her intention and she couldnÂt be talked out of it, so she purchased the home from the estate,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. The studio space, also designed by Mr. Wyeth, is a quiet spot that still contains Mrs. NortonÂs armatures, castings and larger-than-life models of her works. Her tools were found stored upstairs in the house and were returned to the studio, where they now are on display, complete with the duct tape Mrs. Norton used to improve the grips on mallets and chisels. Thirty-one years after the artistÂs death from leukemia, the place still resonates with her energy, as well as her predecessorÂs. The Norton legacy continued, as Mr. NortonÂs son Chris-topher went on to found what is now Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. ÂWhen I came here, there was a big portrait of (Elizabeth) Norton, and that hangs in my office, so IÂm reminded of how beautiful and regal she looked. So I keep her in my office,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. ÂI think you have to have all those good energies. Chris is up. SheÂs up. Ann is up. You know, theyÂre all part of the story. Ann knew Mrs. Norton. They were both from Alabama. Mrs. Norton was from Montgomery and Ann was from Selma. IÂm sure they had the same accent.ÂŽInternational levelAnn Norton certainly came into the fold at a comparable social level, too. ÂIÂm sure there was great expectation for her to come and resume life as a prominent figure in Selma because her family was a founding family of Selma,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. ÂShe once told Mr. Norton that she didnÂt do society and Mr. Norton said he didnÂt do it either, and I laughed because she was society. She didnÂt have to do it. It was just a fact.ÂŽ In the six or so years since Ms. Palmieri came on board at the sculpture gardens, she has made it her goal to get Ann NortonÂs work the respect she believes it deserves. ÂThis is my work. I feel that was why I was brought here. Âƒ For me, I wrote my own goals and it was to elevate AnnÂs status as an artist in America,ÂŽ she said. ÂWomen, they lose their place in art history, and I thought that was really important for me to get people to understand that she was showing at the same time as (Louise) Nevelson, along with Louise Bourgeois Âƒ so I have always felt that it was important for us to not to embrace Ann as an art-ist in West Palm Beach, but put her in the context of where she belongs in art history.ÂŽ Why did she not receive greater acclaim during her earlier years? ÂShe had the skills, but not the cachet or the money to move her art forward,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said. Fortunately for Ann NortonÂs legacy, there is Ms. Palmieri. ÂI canÂt speak more highly of her. SheÂs one of the true professionals in her field. She is beyond the executive director. She really is the best guardian of that institution,ÂŽ said Joseph Pubil-lones, an interior designer and member of the Ann Norton board. He first worked with Ms. Palmieri during the gardensÂ annual Festival of Trees, held shortly after Thanksgiving. ÂWe went to the first show, and I said, ÂI donÂt know why you guys havenÂt reached out to me. IÂd like to do a tree,ÂÂŽ he said. The rest is history.ÂWe hit it off really well,ÂŽ Mr. Pubillones said. ÂIn six years, weÂve become friends because sheÂs a really friendly person.ÂŽ And did he mention that she is tenacious? ÂThe way the organization has grown over her tenure is admirable. She almost owns it. When you talk to her, you can sense that excitement in her,ÂŽ he said. Her excitement is palpable.ÂShe kind of channels Ann Norton. No one had really gone and researched the way she did,ÂŽ Mr. Pubillones said. ÂShe went through all the documents and all the files and this past year, she put together a traveling exhibit of all the maquettes and the bronze sculp-tures and it went back up to where Ann Norton was from.ÂŽ That is all key to the revival of Mrs. NortonÂs reputation as an artist.Lasting legacyLast year, the city of West Palm Beach commissioned a 35-foot, $120,000 gateway to be built in the median of Okeechobee Boulevard near Sapodilla Avenue. ItÂs based on an untitled work that the artist first sketched in the 1930s; itÂs the only one of her bronze maquettes that has not been created on a monumental scale. ÂThese gateways, I believe theyÂre in her heart,ÂŽ Ms. Palmieri said, citing an early work that depicts one of the gate-ways, thought to possibly have been inspired by Tibetan art. And the bricks? Well, the Old South was littered with chimneys and bricks from burned-out homes. Also last year, Ms. Palmieri collaborated with Pamela Larkin Caruso on a childrenÂs book titled ÂThe Awesome Adventures of Annie V,ÂŽ based on Mrs. NortonÂs childhood and development as an artist. She pored over and organized Mrs. NortonÂs archives, and last year, she B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYGARDENSFrom page 1 PALMIERI PHOTOS BY SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY TOP: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens Executive Director Cynthia Palmieri leafs through Ann NortonÂ’s drawings in the archives.

oversaw the issue of limited edition archival prints of Mrs. NortonÂs draw-ings. She even found Mrs. NortonÂs recipes for tinting the mortar on her sculptures scrawled on the back page of an address book. The effort is ongoing.More recently, she has helped to lead collaborations for the first time with the Norton Museum of Art. Next April, author Caroline Seebohm, who has written about society architect Addison Mizner, will preview a book she has written about Ann Nor-ton based on archives at the sculpture gardens. The pace is dizzying.ÂIÂve seen her on all fours at the Festival of Trees, propping a tree up with stakes,ÂŽ Mr. Pubillones said. ÂI donÂt know where she gets the energy, but sheÂs like the Ever Ready Bunny. Âƒ SheÂll pop in the bathroom, change clothes and meet donors.ÂŽ And she does it all with scholarship.ÂSheÂs really a powerhouse Â„ intelligent,ÂŽ he said. ÂOf course, sheÂs stud-ied art. She looks at it not only as the director of the museum, but as an art-ist.ÂŽ One of the many hats she wears is as curator. The staff has its offices upstairs in the former bedrooms of the Norton home, but downstairs is an exhibition and gathering space. In the rooms where Ralph and Elizabeth Norton, and later, Ann, enter-tained guests, there currently is an exhibition titled ÂOne ManÂs View: A Collection of Chinese Art and Antiqui-ties,ÂŽ with objects from the collection of the late Bob Shepps. One senses that all of those former residents would approve. Especially Cynthia Palmieri. When sheÂs working alone in the office, she will hear a door slam and remember that someone left a window open. ItÂs Mrs. NortonÂs way of reminding her to close the window, she says. Other times, she will detect a floral scent that she says is a sign from Mrs. Norton. She had noticed it only at the house. When she journeyed to Alabama to see the traveling exhibition she assem-bled of Mrs. NortonÂs work, she entered the gallery, where she was overcome by that same floral scent. Mrs. Norton had approved.

Investigate it thoroughly. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a predicament with other associates. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that highpaced whirl youÂve been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. YouÂll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; other-wise, you could be misled. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pis-ceans who know how to make them work to their advantage. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although your energy level is high, be careful not to commit to too many proj-ects at this time. YouÂll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. IÂm cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your ÂseriousÂŽ Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. ItÂs time now to let that ÂwilderÂŽ half take you out for some good times -perhaps with someone very special. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Chil-dren who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the LionÂs immediate financial future. But be careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck some-thing away to help you through another tight period. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, youÂll get through it all soon enough. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it. Q BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of being both daring and cautious, traits that could make you a research scientist or maybe even a rocket-ship designer.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 B13 The South Florida Silver Palm Theatre Awards committee, founded six years ago to honor theatrical excel-lence in South Florida, has announced that, this year, it will present the cov-eted award to 20 individuals on the 20th anniversary of the founding of the South Florida Theatre League. ÂThe Silver Palm Awards are presented annually to those whoÂve made an outstanding or unique contribution to the South Florida Theatre,ÂŽ Tony Finstrom, Silver Palm Awards executive committee chairman, said in a prepared statement. ÂThere are no nominees, no winners or losers, and no limit to the number of citations given in any cat-egory, and there really are no official categories.ÂŽ The awards are determined by a vote of the South Florida Theatre Press Corp, whom Mr. Finstrom drafts each year into submitting recommendations for outstanding contributions to South Florida Theatre. Mr. Finstrom (a play-wright), Becon TV talk show host Iris Acker and South Florida International Press Club President and Florida Media News/ENV Magazine critic Ron Lev-itt comprise the Silver Palm Executive Committee. They receive the recommendations from South Florida journalists and the-ater critics, then tally the votes and draw up the final list of recipients. This yearÂs Silver Palm Advisory Council consisted of Christine Dolen (The Miami Herald), Bill Hirschman (FloridaTheaterOnStage.com and Flori-daWeekly.com), John Thomason (New Times, and Boca Raton Magazine), Skip Sheffield (Boca Raton Tribune, Atlantic Avenue Magazine, and L.A.Âs Realize Magazine), John Lariviere (TalkinBroad-way.com), J.W. Arnold (South Florida Gay News), Roger Martin (MiamiArtz-ine.com), Richard Cameron (The-atre Chat at examiner.com and www.BroadwayGlobal.org), Mary Damiano (BroadwayWorld.Com, FloridaTheater-OnStage.com and South Florida Gay News) and Michelle F. Solomon.(Miam-iArtzine.com and FloridaTheaterOn-Stage.com). Silver Palm Awards have been presented to more than 70 individuals and/or groups during the previous five the-ater seasons, and the Â2012-2013 Sea-sonÂŽ consisted of shows that opened between Setp. 1, 2012, and Aug. 31, 2013. This year, the awards presentation will be held during the annual Theatre League Holiday Party at STACHE, a 1920s drinking den at 109 SW Second Ave. in downtown Fort Lauderdale, on Monday, Dec. 2, from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. The party is open to the public, but there is a $25 admission charge.

Once you accept that paradigm, settle back to enjoy a rock solid piece of intricately plotted melodrama. Younger audiences weaned on more sophisticated and manipulative movie thrillers will notice a distinct lack of electricity or the nail-biting tension that enthralled the public back in the Eisenhower Era. But director J. Barry Lewis gently propels the tale with an inexorable forward motion that never flags and makes you feel the noose tightening centimeter-by-centimeter around one character or another. ÂDial MÂŽ is not a whodunit in the Agatha Christie mold, although there are similarly dizzying curlicues of logic and deduction. This is more along the lines of ÂColumbo,ÂŽ in that we know who did it (or wants to) and why. The question is whether heÂs going to get away with it as he deftly dodges the snares set by a square-jawed lover and a tweedy but keen investigator. The suspense is leavened (just to loosen you up for further shocks) by bright bursts of humor. Either Lewis and/or lighting designer Paul Miller came up with a humdinger a few min-utes before the climax. It breaks the illu-sion of reality with a meta-joke, but itÂs so funny that you have to forgive them. After 60 years, itÂs unlikely we can give away any spoilers (Rosebud is a sled, folks). Retired and over-the-hill tennis pro Tony Wendice (Todd Allen Durkin) blackmails a former classmate and cur-rent gigolo Capt. Lesgate (DurkinÂs fre-quent stage partner Gregg Weiner) into a plot to murder WendiceÂs wife Margot (Claire Brownell) for her money. Margot foils the plot by stabbing Lesgate to death with scissors, but becomes the chief suspect because Wendice has framed Lesgate to look as if he was blackmailing Margot over her affair with American mystery writer Max (Jim Ballard). Chief Inspector Hubbard (Colin McPhillamy) initially makes the case that has Margot awaiting execu-tion, but the tables turn more than once in a series of cat-and-mouse games. The minor miracle accomplished by Lewis and the cast is that the script may feel dated, but the production never feels musty. ItÂs not a museum piece so much as a peek back at how it was done, sort of like watching all-male casts perform Shakespeare at the restored Old Globe Theatre in London. But it is a Swiss watch of construction as webs are spun, backstories are told and secrets are revealed. The only weakness in the script is by comparison: In the famed Alfred Hitchcock film version, the attempted murder is drawn out as the master of suspense would. Here it flies by in perhaps a minute of stage time. An even more notable feat: Lewis is famous for breaking down complex material and making it comprehensible Â„ such as the quantum mechanics in Palm Beach DramaworksÂ ÂCopenha-gen.ÂŽ But this marks the first time in nearly half a century of watching or read-ing this play that IÂve understood the bloody Byzantine business of the cru-cial switching of the keys, which is far more opaque than fourth order linear differential equations. Durkin, an actor known for his manic energy and his inventive comedy, per-suasively portrays the gone-to-seed tennis pro who wears a genial cheery exterior. The few chilling moments in the show occur when Durkin lets the mask slip and we see the dissolute, morally bankrupt animal underneath. He does this with a look or a vocal change, once simply by the way his body slows down with his back to the audience. His Wen-dice never comes across as despicable or coldly calculating as some other actors have made him, but his choices still work. McPhillamy, who was downright brilliant in last seasonÂs ÂExit The KingÂŽ at Dramaworks, is the actor most at home in his role. His note-perfect Hubbard never comes across as a bumbling plod-der despite his tweedy appearance and laid-back manner. Instead, McPhillamy embraces HubbardÂs incisive intellect, only occasionally masked by misdirec-tion. Brownell, who gave an impressive performance as the spoiled second wife to McPhillamyÂs king, is just adequate here. Knott really didnÂt write a particu-larly three-dimensional role for Margot and actresses who have succeeded have infused her with their own charisma. Brownell allows Margot to be pretty much a bland cipher. Weiner and Ballard are reliable pros virtually incapable of a bad perfor-mance, but neither is especially compel-ling this round as we know they can be. ItÂs good to see Dan Leonard back in the tiny role of the police officer; someday, directors are going to remember what a terrific performance he gave as the dod-dering old man in DramaworksÂ ÂThe Chairs.ÂŽ The production values for the play may be the unadulterated triumph of the evening. Aficionados of set design donÂt need to check the playbill for the name of the man who seems to have transported this homey well-to-do wood-paneled apartment directly from London. It is classic Michael Amico. His work is accented with period perfect objects from the mounted rotating globe to the electric floor heater to the silver trophy cups, chosen by Sima Bressler. Their partner in verisimilitude is Paul Miller who washes the living room with photorealistic tones from the white bright morning light streaming through the garden windows to the weak amber pools of illumination from table lamps failing to dispel the gloom of a darkened room. Marty Mets has laid down a soundscape of phone rings, soft raindrops after a thunderstorm and other sound effects, but he has them emanate from speak-ers all over the auditorium, increasing the sense of the audience being inside an environment rather than distanced observers. He also has designed eerie symphonies of disparate sounds like murmurs and atonal chords to keep the audience unsettled while the stage-hands alter the set during blackouts.

From 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Nov. 10, the church Â„ at 555 U.S. Highway 1 in North Palm Beach Â„ offers afford-able gifts from more than 20 local vendors. Among the fare: Bearylove-able, JamminÂ Jellies homemade jel-lies and jams, ElizaBeads, Jamberry Nails, Tupperware by Donna, home dcor items and many homemade arts and crafts. The church also asks the public to support U.S. troops through the Wounded Warrior Proj-ect. The event promises entertainment aimed at all ages, including midway games, a bounce house, a slide, pet-ting zoo, face painting and a photo booth. Visitors may bid on an iPad or a Kindle HD at a silent auction. In the late 1950s and early Â60s, Judith GonermanÂs mother, Hilde-garde Gonerman, played a major role in the fairÂs development. ÂMother was a great organizer,ÂŽ says Ms. Gonerman, a longtime church member. ÂShe stepped in and chaired the fair. She even wrote a manual about how to do it. (Back then), the ladies would get together every Tuesday. TheyÂd bring their lunch and work on handicraft items.ÂŽ Following in her motherÂs footsteps, Ms. Gonerman also was a fair chairwoman. Her focus was adding more booths and making the setting Âmore appeal-ingÂŽ than its previous one-room venue, she said by phone. The cur-rent fair encompasses for crafts and food indoors and a safely fenced-in outdoor area for childrenÂs activities. Handiwork by the churchÂs Women of Faith continues to be central to the fair. They still meet weekly to make Christmas ornaments for sale Â„ the angels are a favorite, Ms. Goner-man said Â„ and they prepare all the baked goods. The event has Âpretty much maintained the same formatÂŽ it had in its early days, she said. Outdoor off-the-grill dining and homemade confectionary goods will be available. Faith LutheranÂs Women of Faith have used the funds raised by the fair to benefit the churchÂs school, youth, New Day Adult Day Care and other charities, locally and around the world. Among the organizations that have benefitted by their efforts are Meals on Wheels, Hibiscus Chil-drenÂs Center, Agape Home Care, Real Life ChildrenÂs Ranch and Mat-thew 25 Ministries.

County Road, Palm Beach; 888-727-1649 or thebreakers.com The Price: $20 The Details: Early this year, The Breakers updated its Tapestry Bar with the hip HMF. The initials stand for the hotelÂs founder, Henry Morrison Flagler. But one can rest assured that Mr. Flagler would be shocked at the array of gourmet food truck items and fresh seasonal and local fare that reflect influ-ences from around the globe. And most of the menu items are designed to be shared. The tacos are no exception. The crispy shells were filled with tender bits of chicken and topped with juli-enned peppers and Mexican cheese, with just a hint of cilantro. Also worth checking: The duck pot stickers ($17) and assorted sushi rolls would turn Mr. FlaglerÂs palate on end. And thatÂs a good thing. Q Â„ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE ÂI donÂt see food as just something that you eat, I see it as an art,ÂŽ says Jeffrey Thompson, the owner and mastermind of O-BO Restaurant Wine Bar. Mr. Thompson, originally from Winter Park, says that his hobby and passion for food sparked as he would watch his mother cook his favorite meals Â„ South-ern comfort food. ÂI cook at home constantly and I play with food and experiment with food on a regular basis,ÂŽ he says. ÂI think that open-ing up a restaurant was just a natural fit for me.ÂŽ However, in previous years, he says that being in the restaurant business took a back seat to his love for art. Mr. Thompson originally opened an antiques store and art gallery in Delray Beach before moving to Northwood Village three years ago. For the first couple of years in Northwood, Mr. Thompson says that there was a nice balance of art and entertainment between the restaurant next door and the galleries. ÂWhen Jade Kitchen was next door, it made dining more of an experience,ÂŽ he says. ÂNot only were people going out to eat, but they were coming to look at art and buy antiques Â„ the combination of the two just really complemented each other.ÂŽ Mr. Thompson says that when Jade Kitchen closed, he seized the opportu-nity to open O-BO, standing for Âor best offer,ÂŽ as a complementary restaurant to his art gallery. ÂIÂm an art guy, and IÂm a foodie,ÂŽ he says. ÂThis was a perfect opportunity for me to mix my passion for art and my hobby for food together.ÂŽ Rustic floors, wood paneled walls, Marilyn Monroe paintings, bright white tables and couches, and live music, sets the tone for a fun and delicious night out. With help from executive Chef Robert Reilly, Mr. Thompson has created Âsexy small dishesÂŽ of American comfort food, Asian infused food, and even Italian inspired dishes. If you were to ask Mr. Thompson his favorite pick off of the menu, the short rib spring roll would be his No. 1 choice. With community being his top concern, Mr. Thompson says that he and the chef make it their priority to visit every table multiple times throughout the night. This not only creates a friendly atmosphere, but also an intimate dining experience. ÂThis restaurant really appeals to all ages,ÂŽ he says. ÂWe want O-BO to be the perfect restaurant for a 50-year wedding anniversary or even a first date.ÂŽ Name: Jeffrey Thompson Age: 32 Original hometown: Winter Park Restaurant: O-BO Restaurant Wine Bar, 422 Northwood Road, West Palm Beach. 366-1185. Mission: ÂTo have a place where people can enjoy good food and a good atmosphere. I thinks itÂs rare for restau-rants to offer both Â„ I have a great chef here and great entertainment, and IÂm really trying to marry the two in order to create the perfect experience for guests.ÂŽ Cuisine: American comfort food fusion WhatÂs your footwear of choice in the restaurant? ÂIt changes all the time, but I mostly wear comfortable dress shoes,ÂŽ he says. ÂSometimes youÂll even see me running around in my bright red tennis shoes.ÂŽ What is your guilty culinary pleasure? ÂI love burgers, but IÂm also a big brunch guy,ÂŽ he says. ÂThereÂs nothing that I love more than going to brunch.ÂŽ What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurant owner? ÂExpect to work hard but know that after you work hard, it all pays off and you get pleasure in return.ÂŽ Q In the kitchen with...JEFFREY THOMPSON, O-BO Restaurant Wine Bar BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus 50 Ocean to host wine pairing dinner SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Jeffrey Thompson The Majestic Wine brand ambassador will be on hand Nov. 19 for a pairing dinner at 50 Ocean in Del-ray Beach.
