DOUG MACGREGOR ILLUSTRATIONStories about breast cancer are all the same. Stories about breast cancer are all different. The sameness is in the struggle „ the fear and challenge, nausea and hair loss, fight and fatigue and survival. The difference is in each woman. Margaret Schultz is one of them. Mrs. Schultz had enough worry already, more than enough, the day her morning shower added a whole new level of worry and stress. Her experience is one of many thousands and, as a survivor, she spoke of it in the hope of alerting others to the importance of early detection and treat-ment. Every year since 1992, when the Susan G. Komen South Florida Race for the Cure began, the Komen organization has worked hard to focus attention on the dis-ease, the women who battle it, the efforts to eradicate it, the advances in treating it. Race for the Cure officials are quick to cite their statistics: € 75 percent of the funds raised stay in the community and help under-insured women. € One in eight women in our lifetime OB NAPIOR MAY BE THE LAST PERSON YOU see for 50 miles, or the first in 50 miles, depending on which direction youre heading.

Earlier this year, a medical event other-wise necessitated an unplanned visit by my husband and me. In addition to the emergency care, we received an educa-tion on the state of the nations access to healthcare. The experience exploded any doubts we might have had about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the urgent need for meaningful healthcare reform. The fail-ures of our healthcare system „ those that have transformed emergency rooms into the only and last resort for the unin-sured to receive medical care „ were on full display. The waiting room was overflowing with the old, the infirm, the poor, the weak, the addled, the injured, the young, and the crazy. It was a warzone, an apoc-alyptic onslaught of the uninsured clam-oring for medical care, with no other means to get it. They were met by a competent, skilled medical staff working feverishly to overcome language barri-ers, bind wounds, set bones, find beds, prescribe treatment, dispense medica-tion, direct patients, settle disputes, and triage the paperwork. It was a chaotic scene not easily dismissed as an aber-ration. Its replication is an almost daily occurrence in the emergency rooms of hospitals throughout the state. Florida ranks No. 2 in the nation in having the highest number of uninsured residents under the age of 65, a total of about 3.8 million people. According to the U.S. Census, that number includes over 500,000 uninsured residents under the age of 19. Hendry County wins the lottery among the states counties for having the most uninsured residents, 35 percent of the countys population; Miami-Dade runs neck-in-neck with Hendry and has the second largest number of uninsured under 65, or nearly 750,000 residents. The Palm Beach County Health District data reports the number of uninsured in Palm Beach County is between 265,000 and 275,000 locally, about 28 percent of the population age 64 and younger, a figure up from around 180,000 in 2004. According to a 2013 paper published by the Florida Philanthropic Network (FPN), Floridas atypically high numbers of uninsured are partially attributable to the employment sectors that overwhelm-ingly dominate its economy „ tourism, agriculture and construction, the least likely employers to offer and provide some level of subsidy for health insur-ance for their labor forces. The paper goes on to say Floridas status as a right-to-workŽ state is also likely a contributing factor. Such policies may drive the large and disproportionate numbers of Florida workers trapped in low wage jobs as the working poor. The states small businesses do not typically offer health insurance to their workers either, which is how most A mericans get their coverage. These factors seem to make little or no impression on our governor or the state legislature. They refuse to expand Medicaid under the provisions of the ACA and improve access to healthcare among the states neediest residents. says the economic consequences to the state are signifi-cant. Florida will lose a projected $51 billion over the next 10 years in federal funding covering 850,000 low income Floridians; and the failure to expand Medicaid sentences thousands of resi-dents to Medicaid-coverage purgatory. They earn too much to qualify for Med-icaid but not enough to leverage the benefit of tax savings available through the ACA insurance marketplaces; and, because general tax revenues finance Medicaid, Florida residents will pay bil-lions into the Medicaid system but not harvest the financial benefits. Gov. Rick Scott made encouraging noises initially about supporting Med-icaid expansion but is now in tactical retreat. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Scott brushed aside the issue of Medicaid expansion before an audi-ence of reporters, focusing his remarks instead on the imminent cancellation of some 300,000 insurance policies „ an act Florida Blue maintains is untrue. Meanwhile, 4 million-plus uninsured Floridians, inclusive of more than a half million children, are the disappeared in the policy priorities framing Governor Scotts bid for re-election. On the mea-sure of increasing access to healthcare, the failure of the states elected leader-ship to expand Medicaid under the ACA is a prescription for disaster. Last summer, FPNs Health Funders Group gathered to discuss and antici-pate philanthropys role in the imple-mentation of the ACA for especially those foundations and grantmakers with strong ties to local communities. In Palm Beach County, foundations, nonprofits and public/private partner-ships have joined together to lever-age the opportunities afforded by the options for healthcare provided by the ACA. Coming next week: Childrens Services Council, Quantum Foundation and others collaborate to share information and work together to support access to healthcare for individuals, families and children in Palm Beach County.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYFukushima, an ongoing warning to the worldI write these facts as dispassionately as I can in the hope that they will act as a warning to the world,Ž wrote the journalist Wilfred Burchett from Hiroshima. His story, headlined, The Atomic PlagueŽ appeared in the London Daily Express on Sept. 5, 1945. Burchett violated the U.S. military blockade of Hiroshima, and was the first Western journalist to visit that devastated city. He wrote: Hiroshima does not look like a bombed city. It looks as if a mon-ster steamroller had passed over it and squashed it out of existence.Ž Jump ahead 66 years, to March 11, 2011, and 600 miles north, to Fuku-shima and the Great East Japan Earth-quake, which caused the tsunami. As we now know, the initial onslaught that left 19,000 people dead or missing was just the beginning. What began as a natural disaster quickly cascaded into a man-made one, as system after system failed at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Three of the six reactors suffered meltdowns, releasing deadly radiation into the atmosphere and the ocean. Three years later, Japan is still reeling from the impact of the disaster. More than 340,000 people became nuclear refugees, forced to abandon their homes and their livelihoods. Filmmaker Atsu-shi Funahashi directed the documentary Nuclear Nation: The Fukushima Refu-gees Story.Ž In it, he follows refugees from the town of Futaba, where the Fukushima Daiichi plant is based, in the first year after the disaster. The govern-ment relocated them to an abandoned school near Tokyo, where they live in cramped, shared common areas, many families to a room, and are provided three box lunches per day. I asked Funa-hashi what prospects these 1,400 people had. Theres none, pretty much. The only thing the government is saying is that (for) at least six years from the acci-dent, you cannot go back to your own town,Ž he told me. The refugees were given permits to return home to collect personal items, but only for two hours. Like Wilfred Burchett, Funahashi had to violate the governments ban on travel to a nucle-ar-devastated area in order to catch the poignant moments of one familys return on film. He explained how the family gave him one of their four per-mits to take the trip: I tried to negotiate with the government, and they didnt give me any permission to go inside there. And no other independent jour-nalist or documentary filmmakers got permission to go inside. But I got along very well with this family from Futaba,Ž he explained, and sneaked back on their short trip. The governments refusal to grant Funahashi access is indicative of anoth-er significant problem that has emerged since the earthquake: secrecy. Japans conservative prime minister, Shinzo Abe, enacted a controversial state secrecy law early last December. Here in Tokyo, Sophia University Professor Koichi Nakano says of the new law, Of course, it concerns primarily security issues and anti-terrorist measures. But ... it became increasingly clear that the interpretation of what actually consti-tutes state secret could be very arbitrary and rather freely defined by govern-ment leaders. For example, anti-nuclear citizen movements can come under sur-veillance without their knowledge, and arrests can be made.Ž Since the nuclear disaster, a forceful grass-roots movement has grown to permanently decommission all of Japans nuclear power plants. The prime minister at the time of the earthquake, Naoto Kan, explained how his position on nuclear power shifted: My position before March 11th, 2011, was that as long as we make sure that its safely operated, nuclear power plants can be operated and should be operated. However, after experiencing the disas-ter of March 11th, I changed my thinking 180 degrees, completely ... there is no other accident or disaster that would affect 50 million people „ maybe a war, but there is no other accident can cause such a tragedy,Ž he said. Prime Minister Abe, leading the most conservative Japanese administration since World War II, wants to restart his countrys nuclear power plants, despite overwhelming public opposition. Public protests outside Abes official residence in Tokyo continue. It gives you an empty feeling in the stomach to see such man-made devas-tation,Ž Wilfred Burchett wrote, sitting in the rubble of Hiroshima in 1945. The two U.S. atomic-bomb attacks on the civilian populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have deeply impacted Japan to this day. Likewise, the triple-edged disaster of the earthquake, tsunami and ongoing nuclear disaster will last for generations. The dangerous trajectory from nuclear weapons to nuclear power is now being challenged by a popular demand for peace and sustainability. It is a lesson for rest of the world as well. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. OPINIONObama’s insincere war Robert Gates has roiled the Beltway with perhaps the least surprising bomb-shell ever to appear in a tell-all Wash-ington memoir. Did anyone believe that President Barack Obama was passionately com-mitted to the Afghanistan War that he escalated at the same time he announced a withdrawal date? If what Gates tells us isnt particularly new, it still packs a punch coming from such a highly placed, credible source. For Obama, Afghanistan is the insincere war. More than 1,500 troops have died there during his time in office „ almost three times as many as under George W. Bush „ yet by early 2011, the president had lost whatever faith he had in the war, according to Gates. In the telling of his former secretary of defense, Obama violated what should be the psychological Powell Doctrine: If you dont believe in it, dont fight it. John Kerry famously asked during the Vietnam War: How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake? Obama evidently has been asking men to die for what he considers a mistake for years now.As reported in the press, Gates describes a dawning realization at a March 2011 meeting in the situation room. As I sat there,Ž he writes, I thought: The president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand (Afghan leader Hamid) Kar-zai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out.ŽThis is the war that the president and other Democrats had long hailed as the good war.Ž Candidate Obama made the first item in his proposed compre-hensive strategyŽ in the war on terror, getting out of Iraq and on to the right battlefield in Afghanistan and Pakistan.Ž The president may have meant every word he said at the time, but his position also happens to have been politically convenient. It allowed him to promise a quick exit from one (very unpopular) war while still sounding tough on the other. He wasnt a stereotypical d ove, but a nuanced, clear-eyed hawk. Once in office, the rhetoric came due. By all accounts, the president felt trapped by his own advocacy. He and his team resented the military for asking for more troops than he really wanted to send. He escalated by about 50,000 all told, anyway, although with an uncertain trumpet and a highly ambivalent spirit. If a president doesnt believe in a war, he is obviously less likely to see it through. The cost of liquidating our position in Iraq has been a resurgence of al-Qaida. If we pull out from Afghani-stan right away, the Taliban will surely enjoy a similar windfall. Obama has a remarkable ability to create critical distance between himself and almost anything. Here is a conflict that began with an invasion that he supported, that he consistently called for escalating and that he ordered tens of thousands of additional troops to go fight, yet he resisted taking ownership of it. I never doubted Obamas support for the troops,Ž Gates writes, only his sup-port for their mission.Ž Stranger words may never have been written about an American president.

Jog Rd. Boynton Beach, FL 33437 561-548-8250 PET TALESPocket pet powerYou can use clicker-training techniques to teach tricks to pocket-size pets BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickCan your ferret play basketball? Your rabbit race through weave poles? Your pot-bellied pig complete an obedience routine? Well, why not? These animals, as well as guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils and more, can all learn to amaze your friends and family by performing tricks and other behaviors on cue. Think it cant be done? So do most people, until they try it, says behavioral biolo-gist and learning authority Karen Pryor of Watertown, Mass. Using a clicker, you can teach pocket petsŽ to raise a paw, go through hoops, stand up on their hind legs and put their paws on a box, put a pingpong ball in a min-iature basket and play basketball, and pull on a string to turn a light on and off, Ms. Pryor says. Clicker training involves marking a desired behavior with a sound „ made by pressing down on the clicker „ and then rewarding the animal with a favorite treat, toy or praise. Pets learn quickly that the sound of the clicker means theyve done something you like and that a reward is forthcoming. Teaching the animal to touch or follow a target, such as a wooden spoon or a chopstick, is usually the first step. Hold it out, and when the animal moves forward to sniff it, click and give a favorite treat, something the animal loves that he doesnt get on an everyday basis. Even timid animals who arent hand-tame can be willing to approach the target. Click the instant they touch or sniff or even look at the target,Ž Ms. Pryor says. Then give them a treat. Dont make them come to you „ just drop it in a little dish so they can get it without having to come near you. Its just tem-porary because as soon as they figure out what theyre doing is making you click, theyre going to stop being afraid of you. As soon as theyll come to the target or follow the target, you can do anything you want with them. You can teach them to jump over your foot, go through a tunnel „ you can have an agility course on the kitchen floor. Many people have taught guinea pigs and rabbits to weave through poles,Ž says Ms. Pryor. Teach tricks that are appropriate for your pet. For instance, ferrets are good with their paws and can learn to pick up things, while guinea pigs and rabbits are better suited to pushing items with their noses or hopping in and out of weave poles. Laura Bourhenne, a dog and exotic animal trainer with Animal Attraction Unlimited in Wood-land Hills, Calif., says teaching a nose touch is good for all animals, especially if you can train them to do it for an extended time. The behavior can be used to keep the animal still during a vet exam,Ž she says. And if I know how an animal looks when it turns in a circle and then that behavior changes or the animal wont do it when asked for it, then that can give me a big clue when some-thing is off in the animals body.Ž Teaching tricks has other practical benefits. Your pet can learn to come when called „ very useful when a pocket pet has escaped from his cage „ to move to a specific place, making it easier to clean his cage, and to be will-ing to sit still for handling, which comes in handy if you need to trim his nails or take him to the veterinarian.

The Fed-eration describes its actions as affirming its commitment to ensuring a vibrant and vital center of Jewish life for generations to come.Ž The capital campaign called Tomorrow Today: A Community Partnership ProjectŽ is being led by a multi-generational group of Jewish community leaders who have made the move to turn vision into real-ity. The group has pledged their time and resources to create a new and modern infrastructure for future generations to thrive in Palm Beach County. Honorary co-chairs include Sheila and Alec Engelstein, Barbara and Jack Kay, Marilyn and Arnold Lampert, Ellen and Irwin Levy, Barbara and Mort Mandel, and Sydelle Meyer. To have the support, guidance and involvement from two generations of Palm Beachs most established and accomplished families is both remarkable and meaning-ful,Ž David Phillips, president & CEO of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, said in a prepared statement. Fundrais-ing for the Tomorrow Today campaign is underway, with nearly $16 million raised to date. The campaign will help ensure that Federation and its partner agencies are positioned to serve the future educational, recreational and social service needs of the Jewish community. The partner agencies include the Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jew-ish Family and Childrens Service (JFCS); Mandel Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches (Mandel JCC); Lorraine and Jack N. Friedman Commission for Jewish Education of the Palm Beaches (Friedman CJE); and Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy (Meyer Academy). After sharing the Jeanne Levy Community Campus on Military Trail in West Palm Beach since 1990, Federation, Meyer Academy, Friedman CJE and the Man-del JCC are relocating, affording each the opportunity to expand their programs and services. Federation plans to relocate to a convenient, central location that will accommodate its growing scope of services that enrich Jewish life, care for vulner-able populations and build global Jewish community. Additionally, Federation will expand its reach and accessibility by open-ing satellite offices in the northern and southern parts of its service area. The Mandel JCC opened its new center in Palm Beach Gardens in August and reno-vations are planned at its existing campus in Boynton Beach. Both locations offer high quality preschools and camps, as well as wellness, cultural arts and adult education programming. The Hood Road location will also serve as the future site of the Meyer Academy, which will feature advanced technologies and optimal learning spaces in a modern building designed to meet the educational, social and physical development needs of its students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

DOUG MACGREGOR ILLUSTRATION RIDEFrom page 1question or ring up a soda, dispatching customers with polite, easy efficiency. The South Florida-themed souvenirs sell well, the taxidermy alligator heads most of all. About two-thirds of Mr. Napiors customers are either getting on or off the Alley, he estimates. Half are in a hurry.Ž From there, the highway turns into a toll road: four lanes shooting arrow-straight, east and west across the wil-derness of the Everglades. The 75-mile stretch has been called Alligator Alley ever since it opened in 1968 as a two-lane state road. Todays version opened in 1993. It ends (or begins) in Weston, taking travelers on to the greater Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas. Known for being the speediest route across the peninsula, the Alley splits two distinct ecosystems „ the Ever-glades and the freshwaters of the Big Cypress Swamp. Beyond the roadway, there are hidden ghost orchids, pan-thers, alligators and invasive pythons. It took months and truckloads of dyna-mite to blast out the trail. Nearly two decades later, planners reworked the road to make it safer for people and ani-mals, and better for the Everglades. But today, drivers reaching triple-digit miles per hour arent that uncommon. After paying a $3 toll, a driver can end up in Miami a couple of hours later, without noticing the National Panther Wildlife Refuge, Big Cypress National Preserve, and the greater Everglades, a vast wilderness inhabited permanently only by wildlife and the Seminole and Miccosukee Indian tribes. There are numerous exit points into Big Cypress for hiking, hunting and fishing, and scenes of breathtaking beauty if the trip is at least as much about the journey as the destination. People drive it for all kinds of reasons. Mitchell Austin of Punta Gorda uses the Alley to get to continuing education courses on the other coast, and to go to sporting events like Miami Dolphins games. Its this little ribbon of perceived civilization because youre on this super-highway,Ž said Mr. Austin, a 39-year-old city planner. But right off it youre in the wilds. Youre not the top of the food chain out there.ŽPull off the road, and escapeAt 4:07 p.m. on a Sunday in midJanuary, a transparent white moon hung above the road. You pass exit 80 at the State Road 29 overpass. If you get off, signs point to main entry points for Big Cypress National Preserve (729,000 acres) and Everglades National Park (1.5 million acres). Down the road, mile marker 70 has stops for both east and westbound traf-fic. There are no bathroom facilities, but there is a place to get out and stretch „ as well as access to Big Cypress National Preserve. About a quarter mile in on a trail, a deers footprint was printed in the mud, and the sun was dropping below the tree line. It leads into the Turner River Unit of the pre-serve, which contains more than 170 miles of trails. Fort Myers-based town planner Bill Spikowski remembers stopping there once with his son. We walked two or three miles that day. We probably saw 50 alligators sun-ning themselves,Ž he recalls. There is also access to the preserve at mile marker 51 for westbound travelers. Once the state is finished refurbish-ing a rest stop later this year, there will be access at mile marker 63, said Bob DeGross, spokesperson for the Big Cypress National Preserve. There are hiking, hunting, fishing and camping opportunities. Driving across (the Alley), you go through two distinct regions of the Everglades ecosystem,Ž he explained. As you drive from Fort Lauderdale west to about mile marker 48 or so youre in the open sawgrass prairies of the greater Everglades. And then west of mile marker 48 or so you get up into the Big Cypress, and so you go from this vast open area of the Everglades to more of a mosaic of several different habitats. Its really a remote region that people dont really think about. They just drive 90 miles per hour through it. But if they really take their time to look around, theyll find that its a unique area that provides an opportunity of escape from the very large urban areas on the east and west sides of it.ŽAt the rest stopThe only fully equipped rest stop to gas up or eat at on the Alley is off exit 49 at Snake Road, 50 miles from Mr. Napior at the BP station. Its run by the Miccosukee Tribe on its largest reserva-tion, totaling 74,812 acres, according to the tribe website. The Business Council, which handles public relations, didnt respond to a request for comment. The Tribe is not known for responding to requests from journalists. The reservation lies north and south of the Alley. The tribe protects 55,000 acres as wetlands, with another 20,000 reserved for development. Of that, 13,000 acres is leased for cattle grazing. The rest includes the service station and Miccosukee police substation. Along Josie Billie Highway, about a 20-minute drive from the Miccosukee stop, youll find the Seminole Indians Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki museum, boardwalk and Bob Napior manages the BP food mart and service station just before the toll onto I-75. Alligator Alley was expanded to four lanes in 1993. Everglades National Park:>> Cypress National Preserve:>> A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY


other attractions. The gently winding drive goes through countryside. At 5:16 p.m. sprawling fields with cows were lit in hazy gold. On the other side of the road, vultures pecked at the lifeless body of a small alligator. At 5:49 p.m. a family watched football at the Seminole gift shop and conve-nience store. A teenage couple looked at clothes, bows and arrows. On a bulletin board outside, a swamp buggy was for sale for $35,000. My loss is your gain,Ž the ad read.Merging back on to the Alley, it was early night with planes, stars and plan-ets in the sky. Surprisingly, the soundtrack to the drive along the Alley came in clearly on the radio: Blurred Lines,Ž Red, Red Wine,Ž Every Breath You Take,Ž Stayin Alive,Ž something by Chopin, and a country song. Take the keys to my heart and the keys to my car and just drive,Ž the singer moaned. Driving at night, the wilderness seemed deeper, and the highway nar-rower, the traveler guided by lights as electronic message boards blinked the minutes to the next exit. First, strip off the muckIn spite of fierce opposition, the original Alley, two-lane State Road 84, opened in February 1968. The (American Automobile Association) thought up the name of Alligator Alley to express supreme contempt for a road which it said was designed with a flagrant disregard for essential safety; that didnt to where its proponents said it would go; and that charged a toll besides,Ž wrote August Burghard in his 1969 account, Alligator Alley: Floridas Most Controversial Highway.Ž But 10 years before that, the Seminole Indians supported construction of the Alley and granted a right-of-way across their reservation. (Later, the Mic-cosukee Tribe split from the Seminole). Collier and Broward counties in 1961 pledged gasoline tax funds to guarantee construction bonds. Clearing the way for the road was a tremendous effort. The Alley required a truckload of dynamite for rock blasting each week. Huge draglines, walking on special mats, inched their way out into the sawgrass to strip off the muck,Ž Mr. Burghard wrote. Barges carrying dynamite drills floated in behind these draglines to blast out the lime rock of the Glades floor.Ž Finally, the highway was laid, providing a farm-to-market route for agricultural products and a swift, time-saving path across peninsula Florida for tourists.Ž The road was ... a badly needed transportation link between two of our states fastest growing areas,Ž said then Road Commissioner Jay Brown. The Alley today still fulfills those needs, but there were major changes in the late 1980s. The state undertook a widening project, making it four lanes, two each way. The new highway opened in 1993.Catching cars in the canalsJim Noth remembers when the Alley was widened. As a two-lane road, It was very dangerous,Ž said Mr. Noth, vice president and transportation direc-tor with the West Palm Beach engineer-ing firm Erdman Anthony. People would get behind trucks so you start getting more aggressive trying to pass. And if you dropped off the road, you basically just dropped off into the swamps.Ž But it wasnt just extra lanes that made the modern version a success. Mr. Noth recalls walking into the office of an old colleague who was working on the new design for FDOT. He saw a map on the wall with unusual lines drawn on it that marked the paths of panthers „ collared and tracked „ as they crossed the Alley. The state used the data to help design points where wildlife could cross under the road. Fences guide them to those points. There was a lot that went into that that I dont think people really recog-nize,Ž Mr. Noth said. It also improved the flow of water through the Everglades, which is often likened to one big, slow-moving river, from north to south. The old one probably functioned more as a dam in the Everglades than anything else,Ž Mr. Noth said. The new I-75, what we call Alligator Alley, addresses those kinds of things; (it) addresses, if you will, sins of the past.Ž More recently, cables running along the bottom of the fenceline are designed to help stop cars from sliding into a canal. As soon as a car runs into them, FDOT employees who monitor traffic from remote locations are alerted and strobe lights on the road begin flashing. Adding the cables, said FDOT spokes-person Debbie Tower, was in response to vehicles and people that went miss-ing on the Alley, who left for their desti-nation and simply didnt arrive.Ž There were times they veered into canals, which can be 30 feet deep in places. These cars would disappear sometimes into the canal, literally submerge and disappear,Ž Ms. Tower said. Now, the minute that happens, we know it.Ž Dinner and a sunsetCapt. Rhett Morris and his wife JoEllen, owners of Beyond Borders Outfit-ters in Punta Gorda, often take the Alley to visit family and to vacation in Key West. Mr. Morris used to go hunting and fishing in wetlands near the Alley. He recalls sitting in a canoe in a canal one morning, counting alligators. You could easily count 200 alligators,Ž he said. It was the most incred-ible number of alligators in one short distance. They gravitate toward that canal when the Glades are drying up in the dry season.Ž On one trip he was waiting on a trail for a wild hog. It spooked before reach-ing him, and as it ran, a panther began its chase, parallel to the hog. Mr. Morris Motorists can pull off the road in several spots to view the native flora and wildlife.

Still, after witnessing the harrowing scene, he continues to enjoy the drive across the Alley. It can be very scenic in the heart of the summer because of the monster thunderheads that build up around the area and watching those as you drive across can be pretty neat,Ž he said. There are some instances where youll run into an approaching storm with the sun setting in the west on the way home. Its totally different watching them cross the beautiful grass prairie.ŽIf you blink, you might miss itSome drivers say they rarely see gators on the Alley, while others have more luck. It depends on different fac-tors, such as the time of year, said Mr. DeGross of Big Cypress Preserve. Along with other wildlife, they may concen-trate in canals or near water in the win-ter when its dry. If its cold outside they may stay down at the bottom. It also helps if youre familiar with the land-scape, and of course if you slow down and stop at an access point. Panthers, black bear, coyote, bobcats and white-tailed deer make their home in the preserve. Birds along the Alley include great blue herons, American egrets, ibis, little blue herons, wood storks and snowy egrets. Especially in the evening, large flocks of white birds may roost in groups, and it looks like snow on the trees,Ž Mr. DeGross said. The road is surrounded by herbaceous vegetation such as lilies and broom hedge, and of course, sawgrass. The sprawling cypress forests go dormant in the winter as the days become shorter. A wispy brown color in January, theyre often studded with nest-like clumps of bromeliads or air plantsŽ (not para-sitic) that cling to the trees as support. (Cypress trees) usually begin to leaf out again depending on a number of fac-tors, but typically around middle to late March,Ž Mr. DeGross said. You can see bears, tooThese days, youre as likely to see a state trooper as you are an alligator on the Alley. Speeding is the biggest problem, and Florida Highway Patrol is aggressive about keeping a presence and enforcement. Distracted driving „ texting, picking something up from the floor, chatting with other people in the car „ exacerbates the problem. (It) is in a sense a true limited access highway,Ž said Trooper Ken Watson with the FHP. It is a straightaway. Thats where we have our issues with really high speed.Ž The average speed throughout I-75 is 80 mph, Mr. Watson estimates, or 10 miles over the posted limit. It seems to be consistent throughout the whole state,Ž he said. Now you go to Alligator Alley, you can crank it up a little bit more. We have more triple-digit speeds on a daily basis on that stretch of highway. Because its such a high rate of speed if you have failure of any of your wheels, youre going to be flipping, spin-RIDEFrom page 9 Q Please Lord, Ive been a good man. So if I get cotton-mouth bit, or attacked by some of Oscar the Alli-gators brothers, and if I get to that Big Job in the Sky, oh, please, Lord, let it be on dry land. Amen!Ž„ Prayer by an anonymous construction worker on the Alley, from August Burghards 1969 book, Alligator Alley.Ž Q The Alley is the fastest. If youve gotta get somewhere fast, you take it. Thats why I think its kind of unpleasant to drive.Ž„ Bill Spikowski, Fort Myers-based town planner Q There were what Ill call lilies, small bushes, along the side of the road as I was heading toward Miami-Dade County „ about five to 10 minutes away from the toll booth. I noticed the lilies were cov-ered in something gauzy and damp „ spiderwebs. Mile after mile of thousands „ tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of spiderwebs. It was beautiful how they went on and on, the sunrise bouncing off of them „ translucent nets catching and warp-ing yellows and oranges. I thought about this innumerable army of spi-ders keeping the mosquito popula-tion under control.Ž„ Osvaldo Padilla, editor, Fort Myers Florida WeeklyQ That idea of connecting places to enable mobility and economic growth are certainly criticalƒ It would be a much different road if there were opportunities for development along it.Ž„ Steven E. Polzin, P.h.D., director of mobility policy, Center for Urban Transportation ResearchQ Honestly I find that people drive on that road about the same speed they drive on I-75 through this state.

Chances of survival are slim.Ž Mr. Watson remembers pulling over a motorcyclist riding with his girl-friend. They were doing 136 miles per hour, he said; fast enough that you could crash just from turning your head the wrong way into the wind. Almost all the crashes on the Alley are due to human factors,Ž he stresses. In other words, theyre preventable. Nearly three-quarters of crashes on the Alley occur in clear weather, and the majority occur between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. Either someone is looking at their phone, theyre not paying attention or because its such a linear road, people have a tendency to go into a kind of trance,Ž he said.

This weeks column is a review of The Wolf of Wall Street.Ž My strong recommendation is to read this column and skip this R-rated film which more appropriately should be assigned a Tri-ple R rating. The movies name might easily attract those who are curious about the inner workings of Wall Street, the power bro-kers and their extravagant lives. Possibly this column will satisfy that curiosity and save viewers money and three hours of viewing time. The movie offers little insight into Wall Street dealings. Instead, it is a nonstop viewing of sex scenes and addictive drug usage. Beyond those objections, the movie suggests that Wall Streets brokers are immoral, decadent and engaged in highly illegal practices, all to their customers detriment „ all for a brokers pleasure. The movie tells its version of Jordan Belfort, who creates Stratton Oakmont, a Long Island brokerage firm (ƒ. actually not a Wall Street firm by location or cali-ber.) At its peak, some 1,000 employees pump... then dumpŽ penny stocks, execut-ing this fraud between sexual indulgenc-es of all sorts (in-house stripper shows, prostitution and open sex on the trading floor) and 24/7 drug usage of cocaine and Quaaludes. All of the actors communica-tions are replete with expletives. Jordan Belfort was, and is, an incredibly articulate and compel-ling salesperson. He could sell ice to an Eski-mo. He began his career selling penny stocks to some of the least knowl-edgeable investors but elevated to the affluent retail market. As the latter are more expe-rienced and more cau-tious of penny stocks, he devised a scheme to gain their confidence: deliver profits in trad-ing blue chips and then transition them into trading penny stocks. Mr. Belfort expanded his firms lines of business from simply penny stock brokerage into the underwriting busi-ness, e.g., finding a company that wanted to go public and acting as the principal broker behind the initial public offering or IPO. In the movie, the IPO referenced was Steve Madden Ltd. (In real life, Mr. Madden, the shoe and fashion designer, was ultimately implicated in Mr. Belforts schemes and served 41 months in prison and was forced to resign as CEO of Steve Madden Ltd. By comparison, Mr. Belfort only served 22 months.) Trading in penny stocks has always come under scrutiny because: such companies merits are questioned and the spreads between bid (the top price offered by buyers of the stock) and ask (the top price offered by sellers) are gener-ally much larger than the bid and ask for large cap stocks traded on todays electronic exchanges. (Penny stock brokers can make a lot of money buying and selling when there is a large spread and investor exit can be dif-ficult.) Yet another rea-son penny stocks are often suspect, at least in Mr. Belforts case, was that rat holesŽ were created to hide stock that the firm or Mr. Bel-fort had purchased at much lower prices. The stock was then pumped higher on Belfort-spun stories and, with the stock at its zenith, was then dumped upon his clientele. Obviously, the clients had no idea that the compa-nies stories were false or that Stratton Oakmont or its principals were selling their IPO stock to clients at astronomi-cally inflated prices. There are several other major limitations to the movie. First, it leaves out the pictures and stories of the devastation leveled upon Stratton Oakmonts victims. There are no interviews with plumbers and electri-cians who lost small fortunes or dentists and doctors who lost millions. They are given no face or voice and in doing so, the viewer does not feel the carnage. Second, the sad truth is that Mr. Belfort was released after 22 months in a country club-style prison. According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek in November 7, 2013s Jordan Belfort, The Real Wolf of Wall Street,Ž the Taft Federal Correction-al Institution was described by inmates as better than many Manhattan hotels and Mr. Belfort spent his days playing tennis and backgammon and hired oth-ers to do his choresƒ intelligent famous guys (were found) hanging out together.Ž Third, Mr. Belfort, in his undaunted salesmanship, struck a deal with the courts and regulatory bodies that he could tell his story of crime „ in book and movie and speaking engagements „ provided that half of his earnings go to restore his victims. So Mr. Belfort now earns up to $30,000 per speaking engagement and he has spoken to many a corporate audience. Supposedly, Mr. Belfort has been hired to do work for Delta Air Lines, Syman-tec, Virgin Airlines, Wyndham, Telstra, Deutsche Bank, Fairfax Media, etc. But take that with a grain of salt as Mr. Belfort is known for spinning stories. Not that Hollywood ever gets a Wall Street story right; but this one, while it has a factual basis, still takes and leaves the viewer in left field.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYwill be affected by breast cancer. € There are 2.5 million survivors in the U.S., the largest group of survivors in the world. € The South Florida affiliate is the states oldest 5K run/walk event and one of its biggest. Margaret Schultz doesnt focus on statistics, and she doesnt dwell on the past. Still, years have gone by and she has not forgotten, not at all. There was a drainage from the nipple,Ž she recalls now, a dozen years after her diagnosis. I knew that was wrong. Most people, I think, would know you shouldnt have that.Ž Yes, but, as a retired nurse, Mrs. Schultz knew better than most. She knew right away what was coming „ just as shed known, for a long time, what was coming for Oscar, her husband of 50 years. He was in hospice care. Hed been a longtime smoker. Hed suffered from COPD … Chronic Obstructive Pul-monary Disease … for years. His lung-cancer diagnosis came as no surprise to either of them. Hed been in hospice for two weeks,Ž she says, her voice quiet. He never knew of my diagnosis.Ž Mrs. Schultz describes herself as pragmatic and efficient, qualities that had served her well in nursing. She made an appointment with her primary care doctor. She underwent a biopsy. She shouldered the diagnosis „ yes, it was breast cancer „ stoically, but not without fear. She told her daughter, a pharmaceutical-drug representative as pragmatic as her mother. She suggested talking to someone not interested in doing surgery,Ž Mrs. Schultz recalls. Both of them hoped a lumpectomy would suffice. At Good Samaritan Medical Centers Breast Can-cer Center, Mrs. Schultz met medical oncologist Dr. Marilyn Raymond, the centers medical director. Dr. Raymond told her the bad news: She would need a total mastectomy. She also told other news: No radiation, no chemo would be necessary. The reason to get radiation is for local control (of cancer cells),Ž Dr. Ray-mond says. In Margarets case, the tumor was not close to the chest wall and not in the lymph nodes. So surgery removed it. With a mastectomy, there are only three reasons for radiation: if the tumor is larger than five centime-ters, if it touches the chest wall, or if it significantly involves the lymph nodes. Her mammogram showed none of the three. The reason she didnt need chemo is that her cancer was caught very early. It was Stage 1, not advanced enough (to require chemotherapy). The risk wouldve outweighed the benefit. She had a good prognosis.Ž Mrs. Schultz did take tamoxifen „ an anti-estrogen pill, not a chemo-therapy „ for five years. A hormone therapy, its side effects are generally hot flashes and fatigue. The Komen web site explains, Tamoxifen (Nolva-dex) has been used for over 30 years to treat breast cancers that are hormone-receptor positive. It attaches to the hormone receptor in the cancer cell, blocking estrogen from attaching to the receptor. Since hormone-receptor positive cells need estrogen to grow, tamoxifen can slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.Ž As a nurse, Mrs. Schultz knew a lot about her disease, something that can be either helpful or terrifying. I had a head-to-foot bone scan, and I knew what they were looking for: metastasis. Those are the little nuanc-es,Ž she says in her matter-of-fact man-ner. I think its easier for making deci-sions, because I understood quite well what was being laid out to me. I under-stood the pathology, the lab work, the pluses and minuses. Im used to think-ing like that, because when youre trained in science, it doesnt die when you retire.Ž Dr. Raymond concurs, up to a point: I agree with her about (knowledge mak-ing it easier to cope), but every little piece of information is torture to some-one with a lot of knowledge, whereas most people get the big picture and move forward.Ž Two months passed between diagnosis and surgery, time for Mrs. Schultz to confront the grief of widowhood, the planning of her husbands crema-tion and burial, to navigate the unfa-miliar landscape ahead. She handled it, she says, badly, in my opinion. I was depressed, but I had to take care of finances.Ž She and Oscar had met in Flint, Mich. In a dance hall,Ž she says. In the 1950s, if you didnt dance, you were a wallflower. I had just graduated from nursing school, and I got a job at a local hospital. My brother and his date were going dancing, and they took me along.Ž Love at first sight? No, not at all. He told her he worked for the government. He didnt tell me he was in the military. He was afraid I wouldnt see him again KOMENFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe middle bridge between West Palm Beach and Palm Beach is lit pink until the race.

Race fundraising is a way you can help to ensure that local women and men receive life-saving breast health services. Also, you can continue to fundraise after the Race until Feb. 28. If every race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, Komen could raise an additional $2 million to support local screening, treatment, and educational programs in the community.The Race Day schedule>> 5:30 a.m.: Race Day registration opens >> 7:30 a.m.: Women's 5K USATF Run (3.1 miles), Timed >> 8:15 a.m.: Men's 5K USATF Run (3.1 miles), Timed >> 9 a.m.: Team 5K Walk (3.1 miles) >> 9:15 a.m.: 5K Walk (3.1 miles) >> 9:30 a.m.: Kids' Run (ages 6 12) >> 9:45 a.m.: Tots' Run (ages 5 and under) >> 10 a.m.: 1 Mile Fun Walk at Post Park Awards Ceremony at Meyer Amphitheatre >> 10:30 a.m.: Survivor Recognition Ceremony at Meyer Amphitheatre >> 11 a.m.: After Party for the Cure, Downtown West Palm Beach and CityPlace at participating businesses (Wheelchair division starts 5 minutes prior to the women's and men's timed runs) if I knew he was stationed in Germany.Ž And he was correct in that assumption, says Mrs. Schultz, who isnt one to mince words. Shed have assumed she was wasting her time with him so far away. So when they married, two-and-a-half months later, she wasnt sure about anything. I didnt know if he was The One,Ž she says, but I was willing to test it out. My children said it was the big-gest risk I ever took.Ž Decades later, when her husbands diagnosis came, Mrs. Schultz retired from nursing, to give herself more time with him. They had three months. For Dr. Raymond, Margaret Schultz represents a vitally significant message: Those are the important words to get out there,Ž she says. Early diagnosis.Ž Thanks to Mrs. Schultzs prompt visit to the doctor and her follow-up visits and surgery, she was able to forego much of the surgical aftercare. Too many women, Dr. Raymond says, ignore symptoms for fear of what they might learn. I saw one of those women last week,Ž she says, a woman whose one breast was three times the size of the other. Shes in her late 50s. She had to know something was wrong. Shes having her PET scan (three-dimensional imaging), and I assume she has metastasis.Ž And, yes, the doctor says, working full time with cancer patients can be wrenching, but also incredibly gratify-ing . because you get to know your patients, and all these new (treatment) discoveries keep it interesting. In the last two, three years, there have been advances in molecular typing (which can help determine the origin of a particular cancer and determine both its probability of recurring and its responsiveness to a given drug). There have been advances in treating all can-cers … lung, gastric, colon. . breast cancer (treatment) has been more suc-cessful than most.Ž Her desire to become a doctor, to specialize in treating cancer patients, was personal. My best friend was diag-nosed with a spinal tumor at 15,Ž she says, and my grandmother had stomach cancer.Ž Dr. Raymonds grandmother died of complications following surgery, a mas-sive blood clot, but her best friend, who had had astrocytoma „ essentially a brain tumor but in her spinal cord „ recovered and was cured. I am happy to tell you, she shocked the medical community,Ž Dr. Raymond says. She has two kids and is going strong.Ž A board member of the South Florida Komen affiliate, Dr. Raymond routinely walks in the Race for the Cure and will do so again in the 23rd annual 5K on Jan. 25. The affiliate hopes for 20,000 partici-pants and seeks to raise $2 million. The 2012 event suffered the consequences of political fallout „ the backlash that followed the Komen organizations deci-sion to cut funding grants for Planned Parenthood led to a quick reversal of that stance and restoration of the grants, but the damage had been done. Thou-sands of people nationwide „ reported-ly almost 20 percent „ chose to bypass the years Race for the Cure. The local affiliate attracted 14,000 participants, not the anticipated 20,000. They raised more than $800,000, but that was far short of the hoped-for $2 million. After that unfortunate Planned Parenthood incident, were hoping that we bounce back,Ž the doctor says. It has always been a grassroots effort. Komen is a phenomenal organization.Ž Margaret Schultz chooses not to walk the Race walk … I do my running on the tennis court,Ž she says. I contribute, but I havent participated. Im not in denial, but its not something that I care to do.Ž What Mrs. Schultz does care to do, Dr. Raymond says, is share her experi-ence with others: She is an advocate for early detection.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOParticipants and survivors gather at the 2012 South Florida Komen Race for the Cure in down-town West Palm Beach.

MYERS, FL 33917 PARKWIDE WI-FI 3D mammography at Good Samaritan hospital may lead to earlier breast cancer diagnosis SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY As the annual Komen Race for the Cure draws near „ its scheduled for Jan. 25 „ Good Samaritan Medical Center is announcing that its Compre-hensive Breast Center is enhancing its services by offering 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) for breast can-cer screening. Tomography is a method of imaging by sections. Tomosynthesis is a method for performing high-resolu-tion, limited-angle tomography. Breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis, when combined with a conventional 2D mammography, has a 40 percent higher invasive cancer detection rate than con-ventional 2D mammography alone. The centers Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis system, made by Hologic, offers exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort. The ground-breaking tomosynthesis platform is designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance for all breast types. It produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast struc-tures without the confusion of overlap-ping tissue. The tomosynthesis screening experience is similar to a traditional mammo-gram. During the exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millime-ter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast. Breast tomosynthesis has the potential to benefit all screening and diagnostic mam-mography patients and is especially valuable for women receiving a baseline screening, those who have dense breast tissue and/or women with a personal history of breast cancer. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influ-ences a womans chance of survival,Ž Mark Nosacka, hos-pital CEO, said in a prepared statement. By offering the latest and more accurate technology in mammography, we hope to increase the number of women in the area who will come for routine screenings.Ž Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. To schedule a mammogram or ask questions about this breast health pro-cedure, call 650-6023. Good Samaritan Medical Center is a 333-bed acute care hospital, which has been providing sophisticated, personalized medical care to Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast for over 90 years. The hospitals Cancer Institute provides general and highly specialized cancer services with a patient naviga-tor program. Good Samaritan Medical Centers Comprehensive Breast Cen-ter has earned National Accreditation. The hospital also offers technologically advanced surgical treatment options through its Surgical Institute, which boasts minimally invasive surgical tech-niques through advanced robotic and computer-assisted surgical technology.

A recent study of English prisoners, published in the British Journal of Social Psychology, revealed that those miscreants think they, too, are in the upper half. They rate themselves above average (whether compared to Britons in prison or in society at large) in compassion, gen-erosity, dependability, trustworthiness and honesty. In fact, the only trait on the Uni-versity of Southampton survey on which the criminals failed to rank themselves as better than the typical Brit was law-abid-ingness.Ž On that trait, the inmates rated themselves merely as average.Ž Q Compelling explanationsQ Pastor Ray Scott Teets, 66, of Fallen Timbers Community Chapel in Springhill Township, Pa., arrested in November for alleged inappropriate contactŽ with an 11-year-old girl (daughter of parishioners) on at least three occasions, denied to police that the meetings were inappropriate. The girl, he said, requested counseling with him and suggested that the sessions take place in the storage shed in back of the chapel. (The girl said there were six meetings, lasting about 15 minutes each, and denied initiating them.) Q Robert Bourque, 55, was convicted of DUI in Sarnia, Ontario, in October, but continued to deny the charge. He admitted he had four beers on the day of the traffic stop but said the Breathalyzer result was misleading because he had recently poured alcohol into his ears to test his theory about how Jesus healed the sick. (Mr. Bourque was acting as his own lawyer.) Q The mother and other relatives of William Medina, 24, said they felt hurt by the publics comments suggesting that Mr. Medina and his partner in the November Reading, Pa., armed robbery were thugs.Ž William was a family manŽ „ no big hard criminal,Ž his mother said. The two robbers, armed and wearing masks, were gunned down by a Kricks Korner customer who said he feared the worst when he saw the robbers leading a store employee at gun-point into a back room. A Medina cousin said he deplored peoples taking the law into their own hands. Q IroniesQ In December, a California appeals court endorsed actor Tippi Hedrens vic-tory suing the lawyer who had earlier failed to win compensation for her from a 2006 studio accident. In Ms. Hedrens most famous movie role, she was attacked by birds in Alfred Hitchcocks iconic film, and in 2006 had been clobbered by falling scenery caused by birds nesting in an attic over a stage. Q A man who won a Hollywood raffle to watch the finale of Breaking BadŽ with cast members was arrested in Fort Myers earlier this month and faces his own intent-to-sell drug charges. Two weeks earlier, unrelated to the show or the raf-fle, a man with the same name as the shows protagonist (Walter White) was sentenced in Billings, Mont., to 12 years in prison on drug charges.Q Officials in Taiji, Japan, announced in October they would build a tourist attrac-tion to publicize a nearby annual dolphin cull in which thousands are killed. Park planners hope to attract visitors to swim and cavort in pools among the lovable, captured dolphins „ and also to dine on dolphin meat (and rare whale meat) scored from the culls. Conservationists are, of course, disgusted by the project. Q Fine points of the lawQ Michael Robertson, 31, argued via a lawyer before Massachusettss highest court in November that his arrest for taking upskirtŽ photographs of a woman on the subway should be tossed out „ asserting that he has a constitutional right to take pictures of anything that is not covered up in public. Said his lawyer (a woman), noting that the victims skirt provided only partial covering, If a clothed person reveals a body part whether it was intentional or unintentional, he or she cannot expect privacy.Ž (Mr. Robertsons case had been suspended at the trial court while he seeks a ruling on his legal interpretation.) Q The December federal court decision, by Judge William Pauley, dismissing a chal-lenge to the National Security Agencys phone surveillance program, suggested that even if a citizen might prove that his constitutional right to privacy was being violated, that person could never know it in the first place and thus never challenge, because Congress purposely made the NSA program secret. In fact, wrote Judge Pau-ley, the alleged constitutional violation that created the current lawsuit only came to light because of the unauthorized leaks by Edward Snowden. Therefore, if Congress never amends its secret laws, citizens will never get to find out whether their rights are being violated. Q PerspectiveFor nearly 30 years, until 2007, the U.S. national symbol, the bald eagle, was endangered and protected, but officially they (along with golden eagles) are now so insignificant that the government is willing to endure dozens of them being chopped to death annually in the blades of clean energyŽ wind turbines. An Associated Press investigation in December revealed that the federal government is purposely ignoring the eagles attrition out of fear that outraged conservationists campaigns will hinder development of wind power as an alternative to coal-produced electricity. (Another recent AP investigation revealed a similar painful choice in the continued commitment to ethanol as a cleaner alter-native fuel even though that cleanliness is being increasingly questioned, and even though ethanol production requires the massive diversion of corn that could inex-pensively feed millions of hungry people worldwide.)

A20 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYAmerican Red Cross Designers’ Show House gets 20th anniversary makeover SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe neighborhood nicknamed SoSo (South of Southern Boulevard) is any-thing but. If proof is required, its there in the encore showing of Villa Delle Palme,Ž the 1920s-era West Palm Beach home owned by Bob and Anne Kanjian … this years American Red Cross 2014 Designers Show House. First featured 20 years ago as the selected property for the American Red Cross Designer Show House benefit event, the house is scheduled to open to the public from Feb. 20 to March 22. The transformation redux will be unveiled at a special preview party on Feb. 19, chaired by the homes owners along with former owners, Chris and Melanie Hill. More than 15 renowned interior and exterior designers will make their mark on the Mizner-styled villa. Tucked just off Flagler Drive in West Palm Beachs SoSo area, the homes Churchill Drive address was flooded with visitors when the Hills, now Palm Beach residents, originally opened Villa Delle Palme as a Show House destina-tion in 1993. Now, the home balances its classic construction with the current needs of the Kanjian family as the Red Cross marks 38 presentations of the popular benefit event. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies more than 40 percent of the nations blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides interna-tional humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. Its mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergen-cies by mobilizing the power of volun-teers and the generosity of donors. Each year, more than 4,000 people attend this event and support the vital humanitarian mission of the Ameri-can Red Cross,Ž Show House chairman Bill Kopp said in a prepared statement. People love to peek inside beautiful homes and this year is a very special opportunity to experience fine living and outstanding interior design.

ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts Doctor, Why does my child have recurrent nosebleeds? In the wintertime when the temperature drops, the lining of the nose dries out as the humidity drops. With dry air and little fingers that pick and scratch the nose, germs are more likely to grow in the “warm moist green house” of the nose. This, combined with children at school who bring all sorts of germs in the flu season, you have the perfect storm for a nosebleed. As a parent who awoke to find his young daughter crying in a blood splattered bed and blood running from her nose, it was very disconcerting!! (even for a nose specialist). So what do to first? Pinch the tip of the nose, call your wife for back up and sit the child in your lap for 10 minutes as you hold pressure. This will usually stop the bleeding. Notice, I did not say lie her down, put ice on her neck or call 911. If, after four times of pinching the nose for 10 minutes, the bleeding does not stop, go to the emergency room. If it does stop, the next day make an appointment with your ENT doctor. So why does the nose bleed? There is usually a low-grade infection in the nose that stimulates blood vessels to grow to bring in more blood to fight the infection. These fine vessels sit just under the lining and are not protected by any fat or thick skin as elsewhere in the body. With dryness, the lining cracks and the blood vessel ruptures. When you see the ENT doctor, if the vessels are fragile and bleeding they can be cauterized with silver nitrate. In addition, an antibiotic is prescribed for seven days.

Answer: If you lose teeth and wear a denture, you will get atrophy, which is jawbone loss and/or shrinkage. Over time, the atrophy will advance and the fit of your denture becomes compromised. In fact, your dentures may slip and slide around in your mouth, and hopefully not out of your mouth. As bone loss gets worse, the fit of your dentures will deteriorate even further. Natural teeth have 150-250 pounds per square inch (PSI) of chewing power. New dentures are around 50 PSI. Dentures, after 10 years, can have a little as 6 PSI! However, with dental implants, your bone maintains its strength and function and you can restore 98 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth while avoiding the embarrassment of messy and dangerous denture adhesive. This patient opted for dental implants and new teeth in both jaws to prevent bone loss and restore her chewing power back to what it used to be. To alleviate her anxiety over visiting the dentist, she opted for IV Sedation. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified Sedation Dentist and is highly reliable, safe & effective for comfort & amnesia during all types of dental treatment.

Think cardiac rehabilitation is only for men who have had a heart attack? Think again. Men and women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds can improve their overall health with car-diac rehabilitation if they have had a heart attack, stable angina, coronary artery bypass graft(s), angioplasty or stent, heart valve repair or replacement or a heart transplant. Cardiac rehabilitation is a customized, medically supervised program designed to improve the health and well-being of people who have experi-enced heart problems. It can help you recover after a heart attack, prevent hospital stays and heart problems in the future, deal with risk factors that can cause coronary heart disease and help you start living a healthier lifestyle. Ultimately, cardiac rehabilitation can reduce your risk of developing heart prob-lems and improve your quality of life. The award-winning Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center is proud to have a cardiac reha-bilitation program that allows for continu-ity of care. The goal of the program is to stabilize, slow or even reverse the progres-sion of cardiovascular disease by addressing the patients physical, mental and social functioning through exercise, nutrition, behavior modifica-tion, counseling and education. The Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has received numerous awards and recognition for its cardiac care from reputable organizations such as Healthgrades, The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association. Cardiac patients may begin the 12-week outpatient rehabilitation pro-gram as soon as one week after dis-charge. The program consists of three onehour sessions per week. The rehab center is supervised by registered nurses with strong cardiac clinical skills, and patients are moni-tored before, during and after exercise. A doctor referral is required for partici-pation. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers rehab program has four main components: € A medical evaluation is conducted when the program starts to assess your physical abilities, medical limitations and other conditions. Your progress will be tracked throughout rehabilitation to customize the program to meet your individual needs and ensure your safety. € Physical activities such as walking or biking help improve cardiovascular fitness, while resistance training with weights is used to stretch and condi-tion muscles. Dont worry if you havent been active before. Exercises are intro-duced at a comfortable pace and you will be taught proper form and tech-niques. € Lifestyle education involves following a healthy eating plan by learn-ing how to plan meals that meet your caloric needs. Your cardiac rehabilita-tion team also works with you to control risk factors for heart problems, such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cho-lesterol, diabetes and smoking. € Counseling is available to help you reduce stress by managing situations that could cause anxiety or depression. € Cardiac rehabilitation is recommended by both the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology. Even after your cardiac rehabilitation program ends, you will need to continue to follow the diet and exercise routine you have established to maintain the heart-healthy benefits. Making this long-term commitment will help you return to a normal schedule and rebuild your life. For more information call 776-8584. If you are interested in signing up for a heart attack risk assessment or participating in the hospitals next Heart Healthy Cooking class on Feb. 6, see or call 625-5070.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGIf you’re unsure what to say to a compliment, say this: Thank You!The party was in full swing when Rhonda arrived. As Rhonda looked around the room she became increasingly more insecure. The women were dressed in their finest, and each of them seemed relaxed and self-assured. If only she had worn her red dress! Rhonda had gone through her wardrobe several times deciding what to wear, but now doubted whether she had picked the right dress. Before Rhonda could further bemoan the situation, Carol, the hostess, rushed up to greet her and gushed: Rhonda, you look terrific. I just LOVE your dress!Ž Rhonda couldnt stop herself. She mutter ed, Oh, Carol, I feel so foolish. I didnt think everyone would be so dressed up. I just HATE how I look. Dont you think I look heavy in this outfit? I cant seem to drop the weight I put on over the holidays.Ž Carol smiled awkwardly and said: Dont be ridiculous. You look just fine.Ž Rhonda groaned inwardly. She knew shed put Carol on the spot. For whatever the reasons, whenever anyone complimented Rhonda, she always put herself down.Of course, we love to be complimented. Or do we? Compliments are a boost to our esteem, and an acknowledgement of the efforts weve made. So why are so many of us uncomfortable when others compliment us? And, why do we take this discomfort even a step further and deliberately put ourselves down, when others have been kind enough to highlight our attributes? We live in a culture that places great emphasis on physical appearances, and material and professional accomplish-ments. So many of us truly believe we can never measure up to these enor-mously high standards „ doubting our abilities to compete „ and in the process devalue our self-worth. Many of us have been raised to believe that modesty is a virtue, so we deplore any behavior that smacks of boastfulness. We may deliberately downplay our successes, and mini-mize accomplishments, with an inbred notion that theres a benefit to modest restraint. Some of us have become so uncomfortable accepting our success-es, we may automatically deflect posi-tive feedback, not even recognizing that this has become a habitual behav-ior and can become self-sabotaging. Some of us take this reticence a step further and are deliberately self-dep-recating. Sometimes, were not even aware how this self-deprecation con-tributes to diminishing ourselves, in our own eyes and the eyes of others. We may not even understand that we react automatically, deflecting positive feedback. We may spend an inordinate amount of time comparing ourselves to others, and invariably conclude were some-how not as accomplished, attractive or happy as these other people. We oftentimes make glowing assumptions about their lives, not realizing that much of the time weve jumped to erroneous conclusions. The end result is we feel badly about ourselves. Throughout our lives, we often have fluctuating views of our worth, which may ebb and flow as we face cer-tain challenges, disappointments and successes. We are constantly evaluat-ing feedback from others, and look-ing within and without to continually appraise our value. When we are able to process and accept more positive feedback, our self-esteem is boosted. When we look at ourselves through a negative, discouraging lens, our self-esteem plummets. Oftentimes, when we are struggling with our sense of self-worth, we may doubt the sincerity of a compli-ment. We may feel patronized, or that the other person in some way feels inclined to compliment us, but is not necessarily sincere in their praise. If we feel unattractive, or inept, theres no way we could believe theres any truth to their words. What we often dont consider is the other persons reaction to our denials. We dont always bear in mind that they may have extended themselves in a genuine way. We may be putting them in an awkward position, and uninten-tionally imply theyre insincere pho-nies. And, importantly, they may feel squeamish in the presence of a person whos clearly insecure (and who may seek reassurance in irritating ways.) In todays competitive world, its often incumbent upon us to speak with confidence, and to appropriately highlight our assets if were to suc-ceed. Self-effacing people often compromise their own opportunities and stand in their own way. So, theres a lesson here for all of us. Lets pay attention to our reactions when we receive positive feedback. We can certainly practice taking a deep breath and pushing through the discomfort. We can certainly learn to graciously accept the good wishes and to simply say, Thank you.Ž Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

The study findings appeared Jan. 13 in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. Our prior research suggested that the benefits of the training could last up to five years, or even seven years, but no one had ever reported 10-year mainte-nance in mental training in older adults,Ž says ACTIVE researcher Michael Mar-siske, an associate professor of clinical and health psychology at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions. One of the reasons that this is surprising has to do with how little training we did with participants, about 10 to 18 sessions,Ž he adds. This would be like going to the gym for between five and 10 weeks, never going again, and still seeing positive effects a decade later.Ž Participants who received the cognitive training also reported significantly less difficulty with daily living tasks, such as housework, medication manage-ment and shopping. Funded by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Nursing Research, the ACTIVE study involved 2,832 seniors aged 65 to 96 who were divided into groups for 10 training sessions in memory, reasoning or speed of processing. Training was conducted in 60to 75-minute sessions over a fiveto six-week period. Some participants were randomly selected to receive booster training 11 and 35 months following the initial training. A control group received no training. Researchers conduct ed outc ome assessments immediately after the train-ing and again two, three, five and 10 years later. The researchers selected training programs in memory, reasoning and speed of processing because those cognitive abilities are important for activities of daily living and there is evidence that they decline with old age, Mr. Marsiske, a member of UFs Institute on Aging, says. If we can boost these basic skills, we think we can also boost everyday func-tioning or help people maintain their independence,Ž he adds. At the 10-year mark, nearly three-quarters of study participants who received reasoning training and more than 70 percent of speed of processing partici-pants were performing at or above their baseline level compared with about 62 percent and 50 percent, respectively, of control participants. While memory improvements were not sustained 10 years later among par-ticipants in the memory-training group, older adults in all three of the training groups reported less decline in their ability to perform daily tasks. Future research could examine whether lon-ger training periods or booster sessions might help older adults maintain gains in memory performance, Mr. Marsiske says. ACTIVE investigators are currently studying ways to extend mental training beyond the training sessions to activi-ties that older adults can do on their own, such as computerized training programs and workbooks that couples can do together. Mr. Marsiske and other researchers are also evaluating the effect of combining mental exercise with physi-cal exercise. With the ACTIVE study I think weve permanently shattered the myth that old dogs, and older humans, cant learn new tricks,Ž he says. I think underlying that is a clear understanding, not just from our work, but from the work of others, that a critical thing to do as we get older is to challenge ourselves with new things. Oftentimes older adults will ask, Should I do crossword puzzles? And yes, those are wonderful things to do. But, if youre an expert crossword puzzler, late life is the time to take on some new challenge. So play video games or learn an instrument, because learning new things seems to be the real secret to maintaining mental functioning in old age.Ž In addition to Mr. Marsiske, ACTIVE investigators include George Rebok, The Johns Hopkins University; Karlene Ball, University of Alabama at Birmingham; John Morris, Hebrew Senior Life; Sha-ron Tennstedt, New England Research Institutes; Frederick Unversagt, Indiana University; and Sherry Willis, University of Washington.

Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they’re even given a chance of show-ing. Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression”, and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a home seller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the pro-cess, and on its own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recently study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Home sellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need)”. This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to not only sell, but sell for the price you want. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free1-800-696-0751 and enter 1016. You can call anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How to Sell Your Home for the Price You Want and Need AdvertorialBank of America awards grants to Palm Beach County nonprofits SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The needs are basic „ and vital: hunger and shelter and longer-term solutions to promote financial wellness through access to benefits and resourc-es. In an effort to address such needs, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation announced $500,500 in grants to South Florida nonprofit organizations, includ-ing 15 nonprofits in Palm Beach County.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESSewing table held prized place in pre-industrial American homes BY KIM AND TERRY KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklySewing was as important as cooking in centuries past. The most valu-able things in an 18th-century American home were linens, bedcovers and drapes. The wealthy could import fabrics from Europe. The average family made their own fabric. They raised sheep or plants, sheared the sheep or harvested the plants, and went through many steps to make thread, color it and weave it into cloth. Then the cloth had to be cut and sewn into clothing or household items. So it is not surprising that the sewing supplies in a well-to-do home were stored in a spe-cial sewing worktable in the main room. The women of the household could take out the fabric and sew whenever there was time. It often was a winter job done while sitting near a fireplace. Most sew-ing stands looked like small tables and stood about 28 inches high, the height of a desk. There was a drawer to hold sewing tools, needles, thread, scissors and measuring tape. Many were made with a large fabric bag hanging below the drawer, accessible when the top of the table was lifted. It is a form not seen in the average 20th-century home, so when the bag is missing from a table, collectors may not realize the yre looking at a sewing table with a missing part. An October 2013 Skinner auction offered an early 19th-century sewing table missing its original bag. The maple and mahogany worktable with an attractive patterned top sold for $3,900.Q: My mother bought a beautiful American Character doll for my 9th birthday in 1932. The dolls eyes open and close and her mouth is open in a smile that shows her teeth. She cant say MamaŽ any-more, but other than that she is in fine shape. Can you tell me her present value?A: The American Character Doll Co. was founded in New York City in 1919. The company made baby dolls, toddler dolls, mama dolls and other dolls in sev-eral sizes. The dolls were made of composition, rubber or hard plastic. American Character dolls were high-end dolls with well-made clothes. Although they sold for only a few dol-lars in the 1920s and 30s, they were expensive at the time. The companys best years were in the 1950s and early 60s when its Betsy McCall and Tiny Tears dolls were so popular. American Character Doll Co. went out of busi-ness in 1968 and its molds were sold to Ideal. Its impossible to suggest a value for your doll without knowing exactly which American Character doll you have. But the loss of its voice lowers the value. American Character dolls sell for prices from under $100 to a high of a few hundred dollars.Q: What is a Mickey MouseŽ telephone insu-lator? I keep get-ting that refer-ence when I check online for Mickey Mouse collectibles.A: Most telephone insulators, the glass pieces at the top of tele-phone poles that hold the wires, have rounded tops. A few varieties have protruding pieces that make the insulator look like a silhouette of Mickey Mouses head. The protruding pieces look like large ears. Because the name and shape are unusual, these insulators are popular with collectors.Q: I have a heavy brass letter opener marked Harlow, Breed & Cooley Wool, 184 Summer St., Boston.Ž Does it have any value? A: Harlow, Breed & Cooley were wool dealers in Boston from about 1912 until about 1926. Advertising letter openers made of brass sell for under $20 to over $100, depending on the design. Q: I paid $50 for a hanging scale I bought at a yard sale. The scale says, Pelouze Mfg. Co., Makers, Chicago, USA, patent pending.Ž It can weigh items up to 20 pounds. Can you tell me its possible value? A: William N. Pelouze founded Pelouze Scale and Manufacturing Co. in Chicago in 1894. The company made several different kinds of scales. It eventually was bought by Rubbermaid, which was bought by Newell Co. in 1999. Pelouze scales are now being made by Newell Rubbermaid. The price of a col-lectible is what someone will pay for it.

The Council will feature the work of nine Palm Beach County interior designers in "Interior Design: The Florida Room," an exhibition of vignettes that inter-pret the classic Florida living space. The exhibition will open with a preview party on Jan. 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and continue through March 29 at the council in Lake Worth. Tickets to the preview party are $10 for general admission and free to Cultural Council members. The exhibition, which opens to the public on Jan. 31, is free. "We want to offer a variety of arts experiences to our community and to our mem-bers," Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach Coun-ty, said in a prepared statement. "Interior design is very much an art form and the talented designers that call Palm Beach County home have contributed to our qual-ity of life. This exhibition highlights the ubiquitous Florida Room with eight unique interpretations that are sure to delight our audience." The Florida Room is a distinct space in Florida homes that were built starting in the 1950s. The typical architectural style of the room takes full advantage of natural sunlight and year-round moderate tempera-tures, by generally having an abundance of windows, along with some protection from the elements. Florida room dwellers can enjoy a good view without being bothered by insects, heat or even the occasional cold spell. Joseph Pubillones, a Palm Beach architect and designer, whose work has been featured on HGTV's "Designer Challenge," "Open House TV," and in several design magazines, is the guest curator of the exhi-bition. "The Florida Room has become the favored place for casual entertaining," Mr. Pubillones said in a prepared statement, and added: "Today, Florida rooms can be quite elaborate, but for me there is nothing more comfortable than having a favorite room to read, relax or even sip a Mojito in." The participating designers are Stephen Mooney, Susan Morgan, Frank Randolph, Allan Reyes, Angela Reynolds, Nickie Sie-gel and Judy Weiss, Gil Walsh and William Wright. "We have dedicated an entire exhibition to the Florida Room as it is an iconic repre-sentation of how we live in South Florida," Cultural Council Manager of Artist Ser-vices, Nichole M. Hickey, said in a prepared statement. Lectures by the artists featured in the exhibition are scheduled for 3 p.m. on Feb. 11 and March 11. The "Interior-Design: The Florida Room" exhibition is supported by Stark Carpet, Scalamandre, Boca Museum of Art, and Johnson's Custom Cakes and More. The Cultural Council is the official arts and culture support agency for Palm Beach County serving nonprofit organizations, individual artists and arts districts. The Council markets the county's cultural expe-riences to visitors and residents, administers grants, expands arts and cultural education, advocates for funding and arts-friendly poli-cies and serves the arts community through capacity building training and exposure to funders and audiences.

The awards will be handed out March 31, but the 99 nominations for 34 shows seem to depict a very healthy year for musicals and a less impressive number of new works produced, quality not-withstanding. One sign of the strength in the season is that the judges nominated six for best musical rather than the usual five: AnnieŽ at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, In The HeightsŽ at Actors Playhouse, The Longing and the Short Of ItŽ at Arts Garage, next to normalŽ at Slow Burn and Thoroughly Modern MillieŽ at the Maltz. The directors of each of them were nominated and most of them provided nominations for various cast members, designers and creative staff. The best play nominations went to an equally strong field: A Raisin in the SunŽ at Palm Beach Dramaworks, CockŽ at GableStage, Fear Up HarshŽ at Zoetic Stage, The Lion In WinterŽ at Dramaworks and The TimekeepersŽ at Island City Stage. Yet another clear trend was the continuing dominance of Palm Beach County as home to the most nomina-tions with 62 nods, followed by Miami-Dade theaters with 28 nominations and Broward County theaters with 8 nomi-nations.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA rules girl breaks them allIve spent my entire adult life following a set of relationship rules gleaned from romance guides and common-sense wisdom, and frankly, Im exhausted. I never realized that being good took so much work. So when a man I met at a friends party invited me to drinks, I tried a new and experimental approach: I put all those strict rules to the side. Why not, I thought, let myself go a little? The first rule broken: Always let the man set the date. When this particular gentleman suggested a weekend rendezvous „ when I was already booked „ I hesitated only a second before responding. How about tonight instead?ŽFor once I was direct „ this after a lifetime of pussyfooting around. He didnt seem to mind. In less than two minutes we had drinks on the eve-nings agenda. Was it possible I had wasted all those years sticking to a useless set of rules? Second rule broken: Two drinks maximum, one drink suggested, no drinks optimal. Normally Im not a big drinker. Im the girl who orders a club soda and lime when everyone else is elbow-deep in two-for-one margaritas. But I figured if I was already breaking one rule, why not break them all? And my date was so affable, his company so enjoy-able, that when he proposed a second round I happily agreed, even though I knew better. Later, a third round seemed just as good. Third rule broken: Showing too much interest. Every romance guide agrees that over-flirting on an ea rly date ensures that a relationship will tank. One whiff of the possibility that a woman might be easy and a man will forever classify her „ in Steve Harveys terms „ as a sports fish.Ž Keepers,Ž Mr. Harvey says, are the women men want to marry, the ones with too much self-respect to throw themselves at every passing bachelor. I flatter myself by thinking Im in this category, but even I know it doesnt count when Im three drinks in with a man who tells good jokes. Youre so funny,Ž I said at one point, giving his arm a lecherous grab. My date pulled back. Youre certainly forward,Ž he said. I wanted to laugh. Im not forward at all. I just happened to be breaking all my rules in one night. Which turned out to be a bad idea.As the night drew to an unremarkable close „ a quick hug and no promises to be in touch „ I began to understand why these rules exist in the first place. Not to snag a hus-band (anybody can do that), but to ensure that we respect ourselves. In our modern dating culture, we have so many opportunities to throw away our self-respect. We accept dates by text. We let men schedule last-minute mid-week affairs knowing that theyre saving prime weekend time for a bet-ter candidate. We drink too much. And we offer ourselves up too easily. The rules give us a guideline not just for good behavior, but for self-respecting behavior. Thats some-thing worth upholding, and I wont be breaking mine again anytime soon.

The Brill Building, built in 1931, is famous for housing music industry offices and studios where some of the most popular American music tunes were written. Looking back at music created at that New York City landmark meant looking beyond the obvious. That really meant not just the classic era, but the 80 years or so of people writing music in that building,Ž he said. I focused mostly on their golden era, with people like Carole King and Burt Bacharach.Ž The names are legendary.Besides Ms. King and Mr. Bacharach, they include Sammy Cahn, Mike Leiber and Jerry Stoller, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Gerry Goffin, Paul Simon and Duke Ellington. That means there s a very long list of compositions, from Yakety Yak to Youve Lost that Lovin Feeling,Ž he said. But moving beyond the classic arrangements must be tough. I find things that I could really get behind and have a new arrangement, and a way from which to approach that material. I sing it in my version now,Ž he said, adding, When weve made a record I want to keep moving forward.Ž Being on the road, he is familiar with that forward motion. He flew nearly 100,000 miles in a seven-month period last year, he said. That schedule has its challenges.I try to surround myself with musicians every night who are going support me. Its a whole lifestyle,Ž he said of being on the road. He comes back to his Brill Building project. What surprised me was the breadth and depth of the great songwriting thats been going down at the Brill this amount of time,Ž he said. So many of the songs that came out of that building are classics, as are Mr. Ellings vocals. His baritone voice possesses a fouroctave range. Each of his albums has been nominated for a Grammy, and he has won every DownBeat Critics Poll for the past 14 years; he was named Male Singer of the YearŽ by the Jazz Journalists Association eight times in that period. Four years ago, Mr. Elling wrapped a tour with the Monterey Jazz Festival All-Stars and staged Passion World,Ž a commissioned event for Jazz at Lincoln Center with accordion virtuoso Richard Galliano. Some of the material he per-forms also was part of that. Come Fly with Me is particularly adaptable. I am using it not only with the current tour, but with Passion World, which is going to involve my singing in about eight different languages,Ž he said. Passion WorldŽ is a journey unto itself. If you can imagine, youre inviting the audience to come along with you on a global performance,Ž he said. And what better invitation than a classic song? My goal is to embrace as broad an audience as I can. Im fortunate to be able to sing for the world, as you can tell from my schedule,Ž he said. I get to reflect a lot of that music back to the audience.Ž Q lowed by Actors Playhouse in Coral Gables with 13 nominations. Once again, several actors and designers have multiple nominations, in some cases competing against themselves.

NoThe story of a squirrel banished from his home who s later forced to save the day should not be a tough nut to crack, and for the most part the makers of The Nut JobŽ succeed in mak-ing a mildly amusing animat-ed film aimed directly at kids. Be warned, though: Theres not much here for adults, and even at less than 90 minutes it feels tedious and repetitive. Surly (Will Arnett) is a squirrel who insists he doesnt need friends to be happy. With winter approaching and a food shortage looming, he accidentally burns down the oak tree he and his fel-low animals call home. Banished from the park and forced to live in the city, Surly and his friend Buddy, a rat, stumble upon a nut store that seems to be the answer to their problems. Unfortunately, the guys running the nut store are burglars plotting to tunnel into the bank next door. The criminals, led by a fresh-from-prison Mafio-so type named King (Stephen Lang) and his dog Precious (Maya Rudolph), see Surly as a trivial nuisance. Meanwhile, ani-mal leader Raccoon (Liam Nee-son) dispatches squirrels Andie (Katherine Heigl) and park hero Gray-son (Brendan Fraser) to the city to col-lect food. Naturally their paths collide with Surly, prompting high jinks and betrayals to ensue. Director and co-writer Peter Lepeniotis apparently had no intention of appealing to adults with this film, seem-ingly content with its Saturday morning cartoon-quality aspirations and willfully void of social commentary. Fair enough. Not every movie needs to be deep and thought provoking; it can only be as good as its trying to be, and in this case, thats not much of a compliment. The story is expectedly conventional, and there were long gaps between the sounds of children laughing at the screening I attended. Perhaps that was because of sequences such as this one: Upon discovering a room full of nuts and screaming that he had found the lost city of Nutlantis,Ž Surly says, Sorry about that, went a little nuts,Ž and then asks Buddy if he just said anything stu-pid. Yes, Surly, you did, and the sound of crickets in my head throughout the sequence didnt shield me from any of your stupid comments. As a whole, the dialog by Lorne Cameron is cutesy and forgettable, and not at all funny. The 3D is also unimpressive. It mostly falls flat save for a few scenes with nuts and water flying into our faces. The colors are fair but not dynamic, and the backgrounds are a blurry mess. The Nut JobŽ was made by ToonBox Entertainment then picked up for distri-bution by Open Road Films last April, making it the first animated release in Open Roads two-year history. With financial prospects limited due to its release coming the weekend of Oscar nominations and FrozenŽ still a hit in theaters, The Nut JobŽ could well be the studios last animated venture. Heres hoping the studio sticks to dra-mas (it gave us End of WatchŽ and The GreyŽ) and becomes more selec-tive with its other fare. Q CAPSULESHer ++++ (Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, voice of Scarlett Johansson) In the near future, a loner (Mr. Phoenix) purchases and falls in love with a computer operating system (Ms. Johansson) designed with human emotions. With a great original screenplay from writer/director Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things AreŽ), this is a smart movie that offers a plausi-ble look at the future and what it means to be in a relationship. Rated R.August: Osage County +++ (Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin) The dysfunctional Weston fam-ily convenes in its rural Oklahoma home after the patriarch goes missing. The performances are top notch and the story has a few surprises up its sleeve. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, who wrote the screenplay. Rated R.Lone Survivor +++ (Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster) Four members of Navy SEAL Team 10 are caught in a gunfight in the Afghan mountains in June 2005. The action is tense and exciting, and overall its a solid movie, though its unforgiv-able to reveal who the lone survivor is in the opening moments. Rated R. Q >> “The Nut Job” is based on director/cowriter Peter Lepeniotis’ 2005 animated short called “Surly Squirrel.” LATEST FILMS‘The Nut Job’ a l a a p o s dan B8 WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY

West opened with one spade, and, after two passes, Drury bid one notrump. This was perfectly proper in the balancing position, where a notrump overcall shows less strength than the 15 to 18 points normally associated with a direct one-notrump overcall. North raised to three, and West led the seven of spades. Drury won with the nine and played a club. West took the king and made the excellent return of the queen of hearts. He was hoping to find partner with four or five hearts to the jack, and in that way stop the contract. Drury could have assured himself of scoring a heart trick by covering the queen with the king „ certainly the normal thing to do in the expectation that West had led the queen from the Q-J. Bu t Drurys ESP was firing on all cylinders, and he confidently played the deuce from dummy. Not only that, but when West continued with the three of hearts, Drury rose with the king, rejecting Wests effort to convince him that he held the jack of hearts. Drury then led another club to Wests ace, and West wisely cashed the ace of hearts to hold declarer to nine tricks. Wests defense was superb but unsuccessful. Had Drury covered the queen of hearts with the king or not played the king on the second heart lead, he would have gone down one, losing three hearts and two clubs. It was a dynamic battle, well-fought on both sides, with Drury finally emerg-ing triumphant. Q PUZZLE ANSWERS GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 B9

The surprising strength of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre s production of A Chorus LineŽ is how it delivers everything that your memory recalls fondly of past productions but infuses it with a wel-come freshness that makes you glad you ventured to see it again. If you have any affection for this classic, this is a must-see that earns the adjective flawless „ a word rarely found in a theater review. The magical element is that this firstclass, no-asterisks ensemble and direc-tor/choreographer have gently under-scored more than most productions that aching of all people yearning to be who they have discovered they are and who they want to be. As Cassie sings, the words ripped out of her spleen, God, Im a dancer; a dancer dances!Ž A Chorus LineŽ plugs into something primal in its audiences around the world whether or not the observer loves theater, or whether they long to be a welder or a poet. When the chorus sings, I really need this job,Ž everyone knows they arent just talking about paying the bills; we all relate to wanting to do something that fulfills our soul and our self-respect. For those living in a cave since 1975, A Chorus LineŽ took the real oral histories of Broadway dancers and forged them through a ground-breaking extended workshop process. It resulted in a moving musical that ran 6,137 per-formances (not counting a later revival) and won Tony Awards for director/choreographers Michael Bennett and Bob Avian; dancers Donna McKech-nie, Sammy Williams and Kelly Bishop; book writers Nicholas Dante and James Kirkwood; lyricist Ed Kleban and the late composer Marvin Hamlisch. It is follows a group of dancers audition-ing for a new Broadway show. Besides exhibiting their dancing talent, they are forced through a merciless psychologi-cal cross-examination by the director/choreographer who quizzes them about their often-troubled pasts. Director/choreographer Josh Walden has not tried to reinvent A Chorus LineŽ; Maltz audiences would rebel at that. Many of the iconic images are recreated such as the dancers stand-ing on the line holding their headshots in front of their faces. In fact, much of the choreography intentionally and extensively quotes the work of Ben-nett and Avian. But as with The Wick Theatres current production of 42nd Street,Ž civilians shouldnt underrate Mr. Waldens ability to get such a superb level of performance out of this crew. It helps that this show has cast exemplary triple-threat performers. Every last one sings like a Broadway star and acts these roles with an unflag-ging plausibility in which the anxiety, hope, pain and joy are written across their faces and their body language. Just an example, watch Becca Andrews Val, who never pulls focus from the person speaking, but who is always in the moment, always reacting to what is being said. They all do that. Each also creates a fully realized persona. Although there are 17 dancers auditioning, it only takes 15 minutes or so before we can easily identify each one. Thats part of the musicals secret and certainly the secret of this produc-tions success „ they are unique indi-viduals and therefore worthy of rooting for and investing your emotions in. Many of the cast have done the show before, which must have been some help since they only had 2 weeks rehearsal before a few days of tech rehearsal. Mr. Walden, who was in the chorus line of the Maltzs Hello, Dolly!Ž in 2012, has inserted his own staging touches, of course, but he knows and delivers the iconic essentials. You have to love how some of the dancers in the opening dance audition sequence are not nailing the moves crisply; in some cases, they are out of step as they would be still learning the combinations. The look is the same „ the bare brick back wall of the theater, the white line and the mirrors which reflect the audience since the Maltzs back sec-tion slopes steeply upward. Therefore, much of the audience can see what the performers are seeing, an extra thrill for civilians. The rehearsal outfits look much like the original, but Anna Chris-tine Hillberry built the 19 rhinestone and spangle outfits for the finale in her shop in the back of the building. The entire cast deserves mention, but well single out a few. Elizabeth Earley as Cassie has that glorious dance solo, which she executes well if not with the sharpness weve seen in other pro-ductions. And oddly appropriately, she doesnt stand out on the line for the first half of the show. But her singing of The Music and The MirrorŽ is heart-wrenching and her pleading for a job with the director (and former lover) is first-rate acting with no qualifiers. As Paul, whose father sees him in a drag show, Jordan Fife Hunts long monologue of excruciating self-revela-tion is emblematic of the production: deeply moving as in any other produc-tion but intriguingly different than the way youve seen it before. As always, Jennifer Byrnes Sheila is all defensive acidity, but she exposes deep wounds and vulnerability in the gorgeous At The BalletŽ with the equal-ly talented Michelle Petrucci as Bebe and Jessica Dillan as Maggie. Miss Andrews as the drop-dead gorgeous Val also gives a slightly different spin to the hilarious Dance 10, Looks 3.Ž Camden Gonzales does the same in her solo NothingŽ and leading the cast in What I Did For Love.Ž None of this shortchanges the rest: Noah Aberlin, Alex Aguilar, Lindsay Bell, Anne Bloemendal, Michael Callah-an, Demarius R. Copes, K.C. Fredericks, Logan Keslar, Adam Lendermon, Gillian Munsayac, Shain Stroff and Brian Ogliv-ie as Zach the stern director/choreogra-pher. For some reason, the dancers cut from the group in the first scene did not get to make a bow, so well name them here: Laura Guley, Nick Lovalo, Jessica Perieria, Kiel Peterson, Emily Rynasko, Brian Varela and Nikki Allred. The nine-member band led by musical director Eric Alsford was note per-fect. Marty Mets sound was clear, but there was a canned quality to it. The Maltzs production nails the heart of this show with the force of an air gun. Its selling out quickly; get your seats. Q „ A Chorus Line,Ž through Feb. 2 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

B16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSNo. 8 in the Matt Royal Mystery series hits another high noteQ FoundŽ by H. Terrell Griffin. Oceanview Publishing. 357 pages. Hardcover $26.95. H. Terrell Griffin s eighth Matt Royal Mystery refines all of the pleasures his fans have come to expect. These include carefully shaded tough-guy investigators, brutal villains, witty banter among friends, robust romance, nonstop (it seems) eating and drinking in Sarasota area establishments, dogged investigation, constant threat and the enchantments of the Southwest Florida coastal setting. Throw in some World War II history (shaped to the ends of the present day plot) and youve got a complex web of questions that wont give up their answers without a fight. Mystery No. 1: Matts girlfriend, J.D. Duncan, a detective in the Longboat Key Police Department, receives a text mes-sage from a friend who had supposedly died more than a year ago. It contains the womans photo and the name Jed, Katie Fredricksons private nickname for J.D. Is this a prank, or a call for help? Katie had disappeared when her husband was killed. Mystery No. 2: A man in a stolen Jaguar pulls up to a condo complex, shoots elderly Ken Goodlow point blank and then drives onto a bridge that is opening and plunges with the Jaguar to his death. Witnesses reveal that Mr. Goodlow had served in WWII, moved to the nearby fishing community of Cortez soon after and had been president of the Cortez Historical Society. He had come to the condo building to show a friend some old photographs taken shortly after the war. Matt and J.D. soon interview Bud Jamison, another friend of Mr. Good-low, who identifies the two of them as the last of the young men who came back from the war and went to work on the boats,Ž fishing for a living. It soon becomes clear that whatever led to the murder has Mr. Jamison spooked. For he feels he might be next. But why? Matt and J.D., with the assistance of Jock, Matts deep cover government oper-ative, pursue the two mysteries through the tried-and-true drudgery of question-ing witness, relatives of victims and peo-ple with any connection to the deceased driver of the Jag. About a third of the way into the novel, the writer introduces another time line that he elaborates over several chapters interspersed among those developing the present day timeline. This thread gives us a sense of the Sarasota area (Cortez in particular) in 1942 and details the happenings on a German U-boat patrolling the Gulf of Mexico with a clearly defined mission. Because we have already had reference to several characters, like Mr. Goodlow and Mr. Jamison, who had come to the area about that time, we anticipate some connection with the subma-rine plot line. Even before this thread is introduced, another text message from Katie includes the cryptic message U166.Ž Readers are allowed to under-stand this reference to a U-boat even before the investi-gators interpret the four-character clue. As Matt, J.D. and their associates press forward, bringing other nearby law enforcement agencies into the cases and looking for links between those cases, readers enter a world of deadly narcot-ics turf wars, money-laundering opera-tions and other criminal enterprises. The author allows his lead characters to ever so carefully place the puzzle pieces of potential evidence side by side, turning them around until they begin to fit. Even-tually, the past and the present meet and the answers to the mysterys questions are found. Just as engaging as the fast-action, hard-driving and suspenseful plot is the maturing relationship between Matt and J.D. They have moved closer to the full trust that allows their deep love to flourish. Always happy to be with one another, they also know how to allow the much-needed spaceŽ or independence needed for a healthy relationship. For all his desire to protect J. D., Matt recognizes and suf-fers through her need to meet her responsibilities and handle the risks of her profession. H. Terrell Griffins craft reveals a relaxed sense of confidence. While most of the story unfolds through Matts first-person narra-tion, there are occasional switches in point of view that enhance the readers insights and broaden the scope of sensi-bility. For all that is frightening and ugly in Found,Ž for all of the pulsing energy, there is something comforting about the caring relationships and tonic humor that are hallmarks of Mr. Griffins vision. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. phil be al s m in he hi M fe m a p r c t Griffin

AN ARTISTS LIFE In this series of occasional stories, visual and performing artists discuss their work habitsBarry Seidman started his career creating commercial art. You ve seen his photography just about everywhere „ his ad for Smirnoffs Orange Twist vodka has passed into legend. But Mr. Seidman, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, has made the transition from commercial to art „ the transition that only took a life-time,Ž he jokes. He has completed a so-called photobi-ography,Ž an assem-blage of photographs from 18 of his fine-art series. Titled New EyesŽ, the 7-pound, 395-page volume is offered as a limited edition book that is signed and num-bered and includes an original print. It is available through his studio, or the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. This book is a reflection of who I am, as an artist and a person, through my work over the last few decades,Ž he says. Check out his website at What inspires you to work on your art? If I were more verbal I would write. I am a visual person, and must express myself with my personal vision. My brain fills through my eyes. The only way I have of getting it out of my system is with my camera. The work I pro-duce is more akin to a painter in a stu-dio rather than a photographer making snapshots. I choose not to go out into the world and bring back what Ive seen, but to start with an idea, pre-visualizing and then executing it. I see that which is often overlooked. Highlighting what I see and how I see it, the finished work is then presented in a very large format, inviting the viewer to walk in my land-scape. I want others to see what they otherwise might have missed. Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? Inspiration sometimes is very elusive and hard to come by. Sometimes inspiration is so fleeting it will last only moments, and other times I think it will last forever. I feel sometimes that I have hit a brick wall and will never have an idea again. Thats when I become frustrated and have to search within my head for inspiration. Concepts often come in the middle of the night and shatter the blackness with the light of an idea. Still life, which is mostly what I do, affords me the luxury of working alone and gives me ultimate control to subtract the unnecessary and create images that become an illusion of simplicity. When do you typically work? I work when those overwhelming urges of inspiration wash over me. It can be anytime: early, late, night, day. I start out in a darkened studio with a camera, some lights and a concept, which can be anything from a major production to a grain of sand. I dont know where or when my next inspiration will come, but when it does I better be ready. When do you know its time to put the work away? Fine art is finished when you say so. Commercial art is finished when your client says so. After years of a successful advertising pho-tography career, I now need to focus on photography that expresses my vision and is completed only when I feel that vision has been achieved.

It was rainy and cool „ not really a day for salad, but anything else would have been too much. The chicken chili on this salad offered warmth and the bed of romaine provided a fresh touch. In between, there were layers of mild salsa, chips, jack and cheddar cheese and plenty of crunch from tortilla chips, making it refreshing and hearty, all at the same time. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Many restaurants come and go, but Testas of Palm Beach has stood the test of time. Surviving many challenges, including hurricanes and fires, Tom Testa says that there is nothing more important than maintaining what his family has built. I am very fortunate because most of what we do here was put in place by my father and uncle,Ž says Mr. Testa. We stay current with the food trends, but at the same time we make sure to stay true to the original vision of the restaurant.Ž Tom Testa, a descendant of Michele Testa Sr., the founder of Testas in 1921, says that he has been working in the family business since the age of 12. He remembers a time when Palm Beach was a small beach town. The restaurant used to house its workers in buildings a block north of the restau-rant. There were buildings filled with efficiency apartments that faced the ocean back in the day. He attended Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach and remem-bers when that school, west of Congress Avenue, was out in the country. When the Palm Beach Mall was built in 1967, his relatives said no one would want to venture that far west. Of course, they have been proven wrong on that. But they found a formula that worked for running a restaurant. Growing up in Palm Beach, learning about the restaurant business and inter-acting with customers made Mr. Testa fall in love with the industry. Although he went away for college „ Mr. Testa attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas „ he says his plan always was to return to Palm Beach to work in the restaurant and continue his familys history. Testas started 93 years ago as a small soda fountain in the Old Garden The-ater in Palm Beach, just down the street from the restaurants current location. Testas later moved to the space that now is Nick & Johnnys, and has been in its current digs since 1946. The fam-ily also has a restaurant in Bar Harbor, Maine, which was created to operate seasonally. When we opened the location in Bar Harbor, our motto became pines in the summer, and palms year-round,Ž says Mr. Testa. Family is the No. 1 theme of the restaurant; not only are staff mem-bers treated like family, but customers become family as well. We have a scrapbook set up in our main dining room that shows our cus-tomers the history of where we started versus where we are today,Ž says Mr. Testa. We leave it on display so that our customers not only feel like they are part of our family but also so that they know they are contributing to the history of our restaurant.Ž With an Italian-inspired background, Testas serves everything from classic Italian dishes to seafood, steaks and brunch. Everything is fresh and made to order here,Ž says Mr. Testa. We know that food is cyclical, so we change the items on our menu to fit our customers taste buds.Ž Allison Washart, the marketing and sales director, also says that they have kept menus from previous decades as a reminder of foods that were once popular. Similar to the fashion world, Ms. Washart says that the cuisine trends are constantly changing. Sometimes we bring dishes back that worked years ago,Ž says Ms. Washart. If it worked once, then most likely it will be popular again.Ž Testas prides itself of being a place for which people can dress up or dress down. Theres nothing that I love more than interacting with the customers and making sure they are having a great experience,Ž says Mr. Testa. I love what I do and I am fortunate to be able to keep this business going.Ž Name: Tom Testa Age: 54 Original Hometown: Palm Beach Restaurant: Testas Palm Beach, 221 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; or 832-0992. Mission: Our mission here is to maintain what my family has built while being mindful of food trends and chang-es in taste. We also reach out to the areas business clientele where we offer valet parking for a quick sit-down break-fast and lunch or curbside pick-up.Ž Cuisine: Steak, seafood and Italianinspired cuisine. What is your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I started wearing Shoes for Crews about six years ago,Ž Mr. Testa says. Before that, I would wear dress shoes around the restaurant and sneakers in the kitchen. After a while, it takes a toll on your body.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? I love Russos Subs.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be in the restau-rant business? If you want to be in this business, then you have to be ready to be on call 24/7. It is a hard business to be in because your schedule is oppo-site from everyone else „ while most people are playing, you will be working. You either love the business, or you dont.Ž Q In the kitchen with...TOM TESTA,Testa’s Palm Beach BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY PHOTOS BY SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Tom Testa grew up working at the family business, Testa’s Palm Beach.
