WHEN MARK BELLISSIMO HAD THE AUDACity to bring a carousel to the show grounds of the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, he was criticized for trying to turn the elite horse world into a carnival, a circus. The CEO of Eques-trian Sport Productions, thereby the man behind the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival, the largest equestrian competition in the world, Mr. Bellissimo went to battle with billionaires who did not want to blemish the pristine image of equestrian show coats and white rid-ing breeches, a world of Rolex sponsors, ringside wealth and celebrity.BY ATHENA PONUSHISaponushis@” oridaweekly.com SEE HORSES, A8 XJOHN SESSA / FLORIDA WEEKLY Wellington event makes elite pastime more accessible “You don’t need to be an heiress to see (a horse) jump.” — Mark Bellissimo When is a little knowledge NOT a dangerous thing?

Given his long life, Seeger had front row seat on many a watershed moment in American history; but he was not a spectator. His career as a 20th century musical troubadour took him throughout the country, strumming on a five-string banjo, reviving a folk music tradition that flourished during his lifetime. Like Woody Guthrie, he sang in migrant camps, community auditoriums, homeless encampments, and on highbrow stages from New York to San Francisco. Performing for over 70 years, he wrote and sang songs, inviting audiences to sing along. His music told stories of working people, the pursuit of peace, the power of civil disobedience, and the irresistible force of communities standing together to right a wrong. When President Obama, a self-professed community organizer, gave his annual address, he made no mention of Seegers passing or legacy. Perhaps he should have. Seeger led a folk music renaissance that reached its peak during the social movements of the sixties when orga-nizing was ascendant. The music was the genesis of the soundtrack for the coming of age of the boomer genera-tion, morphing into entirely new forms along the way. Yet its roots in oral traditions date back hundreds of years. Seeger introduced the folk tradition to contemporary audiences and grew its following with song classics he helped to compose, arrange or resurrect such as Where Have All the Flowers Gone,Ž We Shall Overcome,Ž and Kisses Sweeter than Wine.Ž His music famously expressed a vision of America as a democracy inclusive of all people. He was an ambassador of cultural pluralism, and political democracy, helping millions find their voice on behalf of the equal-ity of opportunity to pursue the Ameri-can Dream. He lived long enough to leave an indelible mark on Americas musical heritage but did not live to see an end to the injustices that inspired many of his songs and performances. He witnessed throughout his life the struggle to end poverty. His music took exception to the ease with which pow-erful interests blame poverty on the poor, a reflex that has not gone away. The occasion of the 50th anniversary of the launch of Presidents John-sons War on PovertyŽ sparked recent pronouncements by conservatives the WarŽ was a failure. Senator Marco Rubio joined in, ridiculing the nations failed policy programs. He thinks the federal government should turn efforts to alleviate poverty over to the states and he opposes raising the federal minimum wage. In his words, minimum wage workers are not interested in a raise because having a job that pays $10 an hour is not the American Dream.Ž It makes no difference that the majority of the states jobs are in indus-tries that pay minimum wage. These jobs conscript an army of the working poor by their absence of upward eco-nomic mobility. Nothing out of Talla-hassee suggests that the states policy leadership intends to change that. So having Florida take the lead on eradi-cating its own poverty is like putting a fox in the henhouse because it knows a lot about chickens. The senators logic suggests the working poor neither need nor want a raise because their minimum wage job is just an interlude on the way to becoming brain surgeons. To helpŽ them succeed, federal entitlement programs should also be elimi-nated that sap motivation for hard work. Ill-advised programs include those that promote a higher livable wage, a social safety net, access to affordable health-care, food security, educational oppor-tunity, and a path to citizenship. Yes, it is tough love; but if you want to get on the train to the Promised Land, despera-tion is far more effective as a locomotive than a helping hand. Should your family be among the intended beneficiaries of this help,Ž it might be reasonable to assume that the war on poverty is not lost after all because it is still going on; and the bad news is, this time, you may be it.Ž Low and middle-income families are in deep trouble. The nations disunion and its economic dysfunction are as disas-trous for families and children today as the Dust Bowl and the Great Depres-sion were for prior generations. The social and economic issues haunting the countrys prosperity are as equally challenging as the issues addressed by social movements of the last 50 years. We will miss Seegers passionate voice of protest and reconciliation, but his songs and our need to sing live on. In the spirit of an old hymn Seeger made famous, in all the tumult and the strife,Ž how can we keep from sing-ing?

I was waiting on the train to come so I could jump in front of it and end my life.Ž So recounted Desmond Meade, describing his life nine years ago. He was homeless, unemployed, recently released from prison and addicted to drugs and alco-hol. The train never came. He crossed the tracks and checked himself into a substance-abuse program. He went on to college, and now is just months away from receiving his law degree. Meade, however, will not be able to practice law in Florida. As a former felon, he cannot join the bar. That is one of his rights that has been stripped, per-manently, by Floridas draconian laws. In a democracy, if one wants to change a law, you vote for lawmakers who will represent your views. Yet, as an ex-felon in Florida, Meade also has lost the right to vote for the rest of his life. Its called felony disenfranchisement,Ž and is permanent in 11 states: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Ken-tucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Tennessee, Virginia and Wyoming. Its enforced in differing degrees, like a patchwork, across the U.S. In 13 states and the District of Columbia, you get your rights back upon release from pris-on. In others, you have to get through your probation or parole. In Maine and Vermont, prisoners retain the right to vote, even while incarcerated. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the issue this week at a legal symposium at Georgetown University: Across this country today, an estimated 5.8 million Americans „ 5.8 million of our fellow citizens „ are pro-hibited from voting because of current or previous felony convictions. Thats more than the individual populations of 31 U.S. states.Ž Close to 6 million Ameri-cans, denied the basic right to vote. Because of the racial disparities in our penal system, African-American and Latino men are vastly disproportion-ately denied the right to vote. Holder continued, The current scope of these policies is not only too significant to ignore „ it is also too unjust to toler-ate.Ž The Georgetown event was cosponsored by The Leadership Confer-ence, a coalition of civil-rights, legal and human-rights groups. Last Septem-ber, the group released a report titled Democracy Imprisoned.Ž In it, the group writes, Floridas disenfranchise-ment rate remains the highest and most racially disparate in the United States.Ž It is no coincidence that this key swing state is home to more than 1 million of the nations nearly 6 million disenfran-chised. Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist eased the laws, making the application for the reinstatement of rights auto-matic. But in 2011, his successor, Repub-lican Gov. Rick Scott, imposed a waiting period of at least five years for anyone to apply to the clemency board. Meade told us on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour: Even after applying, the pro-cessing time for the application takes upwards of six years. So, in reality, an individual will have to wait anywhere between 11 to 13 years just to see if they have a chance, a shot, at getting their rights restored.Ž Crist has switched par-ties to run for governor as a Democrat against Scott. Law professor Michelle Alexander opens her groundbreaking book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness,Ž with the story of Jarvious Cotton: Cottons great-great-grandfather could not vote as a slave. His great-grandfather was beaten to death by the Ku Klux Klan for attempting to vote. ... His father was barred from voting by poll taxes and literacy tests. Today, Jarvious Cot-ton cannot vote because he, like many black men in the United States, has been labeled a felon and is currently on parole.Ž At a national level, bills are being proposed that would guarantee voting rights for ex-felons, with both Democrat and Republican support. After Holder, Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky spoke at Georgetown, advocating for full voting rights. But it is still an issue over which states exert enormous con-trol. Desmond Meade is not sitting around waiting for his rights to be handed back to him. He is organizing. He currently serves as the president of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, with close to 70 groups pushing for reforms of the states disenfranchisement laws: Its about humanity. Its an all-American issue. Its not about Democrat or Republican. Its about the common decency of letting an individual or help-ing an individual to reintegrate back into their community so they can become productive citizens and enjoy life.Ž We can all be thankful that the train he was waiting for that fateful day never came. 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. OPINIONThe party of less work The Democrats once styled themselves the party of workers. Now, they are the party of people who would have been workers, if it hadnt been for Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office released a new analysis of the economic effects of the health-care law that esti-mates that it will reduce the number of workers, in effect, by 2.5 million in 2024. This unleashed a torrent of arguments from the Democrats implicitly denigrat-ing the value of work. Perhaps not since Southern fire-eatersŽ attacked North-ern wage slaveryŽ in the mid-19th cen-tury has a good honest days work been talked about so dismissively. The old jobs crisis was people not having jobs; the new jobs crisis is people hav-ing to work. The party devoted to com-bating inequality is now blithely uncon-cerned about a law discouraging people „ especially people down the income scale „ from earning more. So much for its championing of economic mobility.A few caveats are in order: We arent talking about jobs that are eliminated in the usual sense of discouraging employ-ers from hiring, as some Republican talking points suggested. And the 2.5 million number isnt for jobs per se, but for full-time equivalentŽ positions, i.e., the cumulative lost hours of millions of people deciding to work less. Nonetheless, the number is devastating. Democrats want to pass it all off as ending the job lockŽ that keeps people in a job only to preserve their health insurance. There is a little something to this, but it isnt the main problem. Obamacare has created a vast apparatus of subsidies, penalties and taxes that is effectively anti-work. The CBO explains that Obamacares subsidies, by giving people more resources, allow some people to main-tain the same standard of living while working less.Ž And the way they phase out creates another disincentive, as subsidies decline with rising income (and increase as income falls), thus making work less attractive.Ž The pen-alties and taxes, meanwhile, will ulti-mately induce some workers to supply less labor.Ž Democrats consider all this and pronounce themselves well-pleased. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., sees only upside in people working less: What that means is instead they might be able to tuck their child in bed at night and read a bedtime story, or go to an activity, which means theyre better off.Ž White House economic adviser Jason Furman made an inapt compari-son. Getting rid of Social Security and Medicare would cause more 95-year-olds to work,Ž he said. You wouldnt judge whether Social Security or Medi-care are good or bad based on what they do to labor supply.Ž No, you wouldnt „ because they are programs for the elderly. Discouraging work among 95-year-olds is different than discouraging work among people in the prime of their lives. No one told us when the bill was being considered that Obamacare would have some of the same effects as a retirement program. The latest CBO numbers are part of the growing list of facts about Obam-acare that, if they had been widely acknowledged before its passage, would have doomed it in Congress. But that debate seems so long ago. It was back when both political parties professed to be pro-work.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESPupulation controlDeciding when to spay or neuter your dog depends on a variety of factors, not just age BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIf you got a puppy during the holidays, youre probably starting to wonder when you should have your young pal spayed (removal of ovaries and uterus) or neu-tered (removal of testes). The answer to that used to be straightforward: Most vet-erinarians recommended that the surgery take place when the pet was 6 to 9 months old. Spaying and neutering has benefits for pets, owners and society. In general, altered pets live healthier, longer lives. They are less likely to roam because they dont have hormones urging them to seek out a mate, and females dont need to be confined during twice-yearly heat cycles. And widespread spay/neuter efforts have greatly reduced the numbers of homeless animals in shelters. All of those benefits are important, but weve discovered that they must be bal-anced with the needs of individual dogs, and that can be a challenge. The issue of when to spay or neuter a pet is complicat-ed, and theres no one-size-fits-all answer. New research tells us that for some dogs, at least, waiting until they reach physical maturity is a better option than preor early adolescent spay/neuter surgery. Depending on the age at which its performed, several studies have shown that spay/neuter surgery is linked to increases in the incidence of certain diseases or conditions in dogs, including osteosarcoma (bone cancer), hemangiosarcoma (heart tumor), hypothyroidism and canine cru-ciate ligament (CCL) injuries, as well as prostate cancer in male dogs and urinary incontinence in females. For instance, giant breeds are more at risk for osteosarcoma. Breeds at higher risk for CCL tears include Akitas, German shepherds, golden and Labrador retrievers, Newfoundlands, poodles and Saint Ber-nards. The science tells us that in certain breeds its beneficial to let bones mature before spaying and neutering. Dont get us wrong. We believe spaying and neutering is the right thing to do for family pets. The benefits more than out-weigh the risks. The decision you need to make, in conjunction with your veterinar-ian, is when to schedule it for your particu-lar pet. Here are some factors to consider: Q Ask your veterinarian about the health risks faced by your breed and whether any of these issues are affected by the age at which a dog is spayed or neutered. Several recent studies have addressed these topics. Q Typically, the bigger the dog, the greater the risk of orthopedic problems with early spay/neuter. Letting the dog mature before spaying or neutering may improve bone health over the long run. Talk to your veterinarian about the best age for your dog based on breed and the latest science. Q Consider alternative methods of altering your dog, such as ovariectomy (removal of only the ovaries) or injectable neutering with Zeuterin. An ovariectomy is less invasive, and the Zeuterin procedure allows dogs to retain some of their testos-terone, which can offer certain protective health benefits, according to some studies. Q Make your decision based on the most current research and your dogs breed and lifestyle. For instance, if your dog will be a canine athlete, later neutering may improve his muscle tone and decrease the risk of CCL ruptures. Q Put risk into perspective. Altering at a young age may have only a slight effect on the incidence of disease, and the increase in incidence will be breed-related. If the risk increases from 1 in 20,000 to 2 in 20,000, you are still better off spaying or neutering your dog. Cat owners, your decision is easy. Spaying or neutering before 5 or 6 months of age is still best, no matter what the breed or mix.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYBut Mr. Bellissimo was hell-bent on bringing the majesty of the sport to the masses. Other equestrian superpow-ers, such as the International Polo Club Palm Beach, are also trying to push this cultural shift from private clubŽ per-ceptions to communal pastime. Here, their sports may be played at the elite level, but executives no longer care for the elitist stereotype. Rather than be exclusive, they want to be accessible. Its a very interesting balance trying to create this equestrian lifestyle destination that has a reputation for being the sport of kings, or royalty, or celebrity, or great wealth, and trying to apply it to a much broader audience, to people who have an interest in that thing „ the horse,Ž Mr. Bellissimo says. You dont need to be an heiress to see it jump, or to pet it, or to ride the car-ousel.Ž Mothers of equestrian hopefuls in Naples and good ol country girls in Punta Gorda see the wealth and status emanating from Wellington but have yet to feel a communal shift into a more commercial sport. To them, Wel-lingtons another world. It may have a global reputation, but will the equine life ever attract enough local attention to draw crowds as abundant as the wealth? From the vantage of Olympic competitors and equestrian aficionados its widely accepted that the general public does not grasp the enormous-ness of the horse world, how big those European warmbloods and American thoroughbreds actually are, how high they can jump and how much money that thing,Ž that high-brow beast „ the horse „ brings in. The numbers are staggering, lacking as they may be. The latest study com-piled by the American Horse Council showed the horse industry to have a $102 billion impact on the national economy and a $5 billion impact on the Florida economy, but that study was done in 2005 and the council has no date set for a new study. The U.S. Department of Agriculture 2007 census found there to be more than 120,600 horses and ponies on roughly 13,800 farms in the state of Florida, with sales of more than 16,000 horses and ponies reaching close to $168 million. State statisticians say these numbers mostly reflect horses as livestock, not horses as entertainment or sport. The USDA intends to release another census in May, but again, these numbers will not show the whole she-bang of horses in the state. Before the equestrian boom, Wellington was a residential community way west of the beaches, where cattle grazed and orange groves blossomed. Victor Connor, president of the Wel-lington Chamber of Commerce and chair of the equestrian committee, says the place has since become syn-onymous with equestrian sport: When you hear Wimbledon, you think tennis. When you hear Wellington, you think horses. A report on the 2011 equestrian season shows a $5.8 million economic impact, proving the pull Wellington has as a premier sport destination. Estimat-ed expenditures surpassed $185 million. The economic impact of the winter equestrian festival alone rounds up to $5.5 million, with estimated expendi-tures nearing $121 million. A power struggle played out between the old blue bloods of horse shows and the new blood of Mark Bel-lissimo,Ž Mr. Connor says. Mark was eventually the successful power in growing and improving the show ƒ The result is what you see today.Ž Mr. Bellissimo wants people to become insiders to the sport and not feel like observers of some distant world. If your only exposure to the horse world is a ride on a carousel, thats awesome,Ž because it brings you a step closer into that world. He wants to change what the equestrian world looks like, so more people can see it. His motivation behind this maneuver roots in his belief in the magic of the horse.The ‘magic of the horse’The magic of the horse, part of it is, and Ive seen this ƒ especially with kids going through tough times with their families, they have a divorce in their family and they have financial troubles ƒ they live in a world where you cant control your surroundings, but when you get on a horse, when you tell it to go left, it goes left. When you tell it to stop, it stops. When you say go right, it goes right. Say go forward, it goes forward,Ž he says. Theres sort of this ability to capture a great rela-tionship with someone who doesnt really ever say no, who doesnt yell at you, who doesnt tell you that youre overweight, doesnt tell you that youre awkward, doesnt tell you that you have acne, but just gives unconditional responses to what youre doing. So my theory would be, it presents a great opportunity to have a level of control in a world where sometimes you dont have any control. Thats something wed love to promote in a pretty aggressive fashion.Ž Mr. Bellissimo does not come from generational wealth. He grew up in a 1,800-square-foot home with six kids. He says the fight was not over who could ride what horse, but who could have the bathroom. In 2005, he stepped in to help steer the fate of the festival. He says the show grounds were struggling and he questioned, if there were no spectators, no sponsors, no TV time, was there no sport? He was inspired by how tennis underwent a metamorphosis from a country-club sport to a universal craze, so he assembled Wellington Equestrian Partners to oversee and transform the festival. Mr. Bellissimo and his partners have invested more than $200 million and business has tripled. The 12-week fes-tival now welcomes 6,000 horses and 2,800 riders, who compete for $8 mil-lion in prize money. In his attempt to narrow the disparity between the equestrian wealthy and the not-so-fortunate, Mr. Bellis-simo has implemented low-cost riding lessons, scholarships to pursue the sport and free admissions to Saturday Night Lights,Ž a favored weekly outing, which Mr. Bellissimo amplified with pony rides, a petting zoo, face paint-ing, bounce houses and the contentious carousel. When he built a tiki hut next to the VIP International Club on the periph-ery of the main arena, he says people told him, You cant do that. This is Palm Beach. Addison Mizner. It has to be elegant.Ž He told them, No, it has to be fun.Ž Mr. Bellissimo feels such revolutionary changes struck a nerve with the community „ the horse world can be accessible, you dont have to wear Ralph Lauren, you dont have to ride in the ring on a million-dollar horse, you dont have to be an heiress to come and enjoy this. (Ironically, as hes emphasiz-ing his point, Mr. Bellissimo stops to say hello to Athina Onassis.) His favorite night of the festival, his favorite moment, what he believes to be the greatest legacy he and his fam-ily and his partners will leave to the community would be the Great Charity Challenge, an event not trying to shine light on the equine glitterati, but rather on their generosity. This is probably the greatest aggregation of wealth „ not just in Palm Beach, not just in Florida „ but in the world,Ž Mr. Bellissimo says of the gentry assembled from 50 states and 33 countries. The wealthiest families on the planet are here,Ž and through the Great Charity Challenge, they are impacting Palm Beach charities. No black ties, no connections, no politics, 32 charities were randomly selected out of a bingo-like raffle HORSESFrom page 1 SPORTFOT / COURTESY PHOTOLauren Hough, a member of the U.S. show jumping team at the 2000 Olympics, calls Wellington home.LEXEY HALL / COURTESY PHOTOMark Bellissimo LEXEY HALL / COURTESY PHOTOSpectators applaud show jumpers and snap pictures at a Saturday Night Lights event.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 20-26, 2014 NEWS A9machine and paired with equestrian teams of professional and amateur show-jumpers, competing for money and bragging rights. Two wild card charities were drawn on site. The event raised more than $2.25 million. The top team took $150,000. But no charity left with less than $15,000. Everyone wins in the Great Charity Challenge, a philanthropic endeavor Mr. Bellissimo describes as pure.Ž Catapulted country music star Hunter Hayes performed for a crowd of squeal-ing girls and lit-up iPhones. His charity of choice, MusiCares, was added to the mix, taking third place and $125,000. Mr. Hayes played Invisible,Ž his anti-bullying anthem that shook the Grammys, spurring equestrian families to donate $250,000 toward a local anti-bullying campaign. Youngsters from the Boys & Girls Club were there that first Saturday night in February, with their pudgy cheeks and missing teeth, amidst all those horses and all that money. They watched those warmbloods run. They watched those warmbloods jump. They saw their heartbeat in their muscles, their chest muscles, the muscles in their hind legs. Some ran fast and jumped flat. Others had more loft in their jump, kicking out their hooves like a splash of air. The riders who competed on behalf of the Boys & Girls Club took the youngsters back to the stables after they rode around the ring. The children laughed at the horseshoe prints in the mud. Snapping carrots in half, the rid-ers asked the children if they wanted to feed the horses. The children were shy, scared. Those horses were over 16 hands high, over 1,500 pounds. The children conjured up their courage and fed those horses carrots. Their hands all sticky, they whinnied louder than the horses. Kae Jonsons, vice president of foundation development and donor rela-tions for the Boys & Girls Club, feels moments like these perpetuate confi-dence, that somewhere inside the chil-dren wonder, If I can go here, where else will I go? A lot of (children) may live five minutes away from here, but they wouldnt normally otherwise come over to something like this,Ž she says. This breaks down the mystery and the barri-ers, to be able to just come in.ŽSetting polo, show-jumping apartThe benefactor of the Boys & Girls Club being polo patron Neil Hirsch, Ms. Jonsons attends about a dozen polo matches and show jumping events a season. She sets the two sports apart by saying, Anybody whos going to polo isnt riding that horse with that player ƒ theyre observing the beauti-ful men and animals, but at the same time theyre watching the people, theyre drinking champagne. Its more of a whole experience. Here, I think its more one-on-one, because when that rider is out there riding the horse, theres at least three-quarters of that stadium thats riding that horse with that rider.Ž The International Polo Club has taken great strides, stretching down into Miami and over to Naples, to broaden the scope of the sport. The Maserati U.S. Polo Championship will air on NBC. The club has even gone into schools to teach students the game. We dont charge six days a week to come out here,Ž says John Wash, presi-dent of the prestigious polo club. Any-body can come out on a Sunday for a $10 ticket. You dont have to sit down at the $100 brunch.Ž Mr. Wash says he has not been met with any opposition in his efforts to reshape polo as an accessible scene, not an exclusive club, but an everyman sport. Look at the patrons, look at the players, look through their eyes, they just want to play,Ž Mr. Wash says. They dont care if theyre playing on an inter-national field in front of 5,000 people. They love playing on the backfields, too.Ž Last season ticket sales were up 64 percent. So far this season, sales are up 25 percent. And thats with a rainout and Super Bowl Sunday. So more than resistance, Mr. Wash has heard, Thank you.Ž Polo generates $30 million in annual revenue. Mr. Wash does not believe that number to be totally accurate. The average price of a polo pony runs around $150,000. Some teams bring in 150 horses. Multiply 150 by $150,000,Ž by multiple teams, he poses, I think the numbers would be even more stag-gering if someone put it all together.Ž No matter how much he welcomes the masses, he cant take the wealth out of the game. Try as the club may to shake the elitist stereotype, Mr. Wash feels polo will always have a Pretty WomanŽ persona attached to it. Everyone knows polos rich, but Mr. Wash would like to add another adjec-tive: rough. He would like to see the game recognized more for its athletic grit, what the polo reverent see as they watch polo ponies body-slam each other and players swing their mallets with such force it looks like a guillotine „ slicing. Making the show-jumping side just as palpable, Dennis Shaughnessy, retired executive chairman of the board at FTI Consulting, says, Stadium jumping is probably the closest thing youre going to see to a knockdown, drag-out sprint athletic event, coupled with ballet. And it epitomizes, in our opinion, the ulti-mate trust. So you have this spectacular athlete and this 1,600-pound horse that has to trust where the riders going to take him to clear the jumps. Its a thing of beauty as theyre going over the jumps, but then its all speed and precision and making the right turns and being aggressive through the entire course. Its a beautiful sport coupled with the thrill of watching horses nego-tiate gigantic jumps against the clock for a lot of money.Ž Mr. Shaughnessy has read that there are more billionaires now living in Wellington than there are on Palm Beach Island. Considering the daugh-ters of the privileged who compete in the sport „ Bill Gates daughter, Bruce Springsteens daugh-ter „ Mr. Shaugh-nessy feels that might be true. And good for the expo-sure of the sport. Celebrity doesnt talk. It screams,Ž he says. Theres no doubt that people are interested in these highly suc-cessful families and what their kids do. I think celebrity has to help.Ž Kathy Wheelers daughter, Emily, rode in the 2013 inaugural parade, where she claims to have made eye contact with Joe Biden. Emily went to a boarding school for its equestrian program. Growing up in Naples, she started riding horses at age 7 with Miss Kitty. Everybody around these parts learned to ride from Miss Kitty,Ž Ms. Wheeler says.Wellington is “It”Her daughter was not in the Wellington world. Wellingtons kind of It,Ž Ms. Wheeler says of the equestrian echelon. Any given day, you might find yourself competing against a former Olympian or Madonna.Ž She depicts Wellington as very elite, very serious, very well funded. Even on the sleepier west side of the state, Ms. Wheeler says the sport still aint cheap. I wish my daughter would have chosen soccer. Im kidding. But it sure would have been nice to say, Here are your cleats. See you at 5.Ž She does not foresee equestrian sport becoming a popular sport because the sports just not available to a large cross-section of people. Celebrity leads to having deep pockets,Ž she says. Once (the children of celebrities) are out there competing, theyre competing on a level playing field. I dont think they win because theyre the daughter of someone famous. But having, really, an unlimited checkbook buys you the best trainers, the best equipment, the best horses. Combined with your natu-ral ability, youre going to do well. Bet-ter than someone with just natural abil-ity and no means to buy the rest of it.Ž Proud member of the Punta Gorda Horsemans Association Cindy Roch-ester says their little shows can bring in more than 50 riders, upwards of 100 spectators and anywhere from a grand to a couple thousand bucks. She does not mean to brag, but her horse American Gladiator has won some awards. Nicknamed Nitro,Ž he showed in Wellington several years ago. The event was named after some humanitarian sponsor, Ms. Rochester doesnt remember, but says her steed swept the evening. Oh, my God. Wellington is the place to be,Ž she says. Were talking horses that jump fences 6-feet high. Those horses are magnificent ƒ In Wellington, in Palm Beach, thats where the big money is. Thats a world I could not imagine being in. Im just a little ol horse show person over in Punta Gorda.Ž Ms. Rochester has never personally attended a show in Wellington. Nitro won when he belonged to somebody else. The grandeur of the scene is something Ms. Rochester has only seen on television and in her imagination. Its just breathtaking. Theres no other word for it,Ž she says. When a horse is about to jump, I will take in a breath and go, Huh! Hold it. Watch the horse jump over. And then let out an, Ah. When a horse faults, when they knock off a rail, you go, Oh! They were doing so beautifully.Ž McLain Ward would be one of those top riders striving for that clean ride. Part of two Olympic gold medal show-jumping teams, Mr. Ward says he felt like the baby at the 2004 Games in Ath-ens, but by the 2008 Games in Beijing, he felt he and his Olympic mount Sap-phire were the touchstone of the team. Shes been the horse of my lifetime,Ž Mr. Ward says of Sapphire. I think certain horses understand what we are asking of them better than others ƒ Maybe they dont see it in quite the same rationale as we do, but they have an understanding of the moment and the importance of it and that they are important. They sense the atmosphere. Some rise to it and some wilt a little bit under it. She was one who rose to the day.Ž Only as good as the horse they sit on, riders are constantly on the search for the next horse. Mr. Ward compares this to putting together a baseball team: You have farm leagues, horses coming up. Youre investing in future talent. Some of it turns out better than you thought. Some of it doesnt turn out as well as you hoped. The youngest rider to reach the million-dollar mark in grand prix winnings, Mr. Ward says, One of the things that we really fight is this battle that its a very exclusive world. The reality is most of your top riders came from very humble backgrounds, worked very hard to be successful at (their game). Theres certainly the rep-utation of there being a lot of money around the sport, but the best in the world are very much working-class fighters themselves. And the ability to do that is whats made them successful in the end.Ž Sporting his Ray-Bans and riding gear, Mr. Ward saunters off to pace off the next course. Talking to himself, he converts his steps into horse strides and maps out how he intends to tackle the jumps He looks like a walking metaphor for Mark Bellissimo „ the man pacing out the fate of the festival. If there was one material thing that captured the essence of where he was trying to take the facility, he says it would be a middle-school painting. In the clouds above a carousel, the chil-dren painted the words, Every dream begins somewhere.Ž Thats where the painting stands on display for now, right next to the car-ousel, but its so close to his heart, Mr. Bellissimo believes one day it will hang in his home.

Thats the one that just this week headlined with the story of Bode Miller, the skier, breaking into tears when asked about his dead brother by a female report-er in Sochi. The online edition also featured important stories about a female teacher having sex with her students; the deaths of a mother and four kids in a burning SUV witnessed by the father; a transgender Italian politician arrested in Sochi for car-rying a gay rights flag; a 22-year-old male student found beaten to death in New Jersey; arrests at a Nigerian restaurant where cops discovered human meat on the menu; a woman jailed for not return-ing a movie video to a now-sh uttered store nine years earlier; an angry guy who shot a 15-year-old girl because she egged his car; a 21-year-old Christian studies stu-dent who shot his girlfriend and then tried to make it look like suicide; a declaration by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that Chicago deep-dish pizza is not really pizza, so it shouldnt be called that; and finally this one, way down the line: Florida woman faked rape story after skipping work: authorities.Ž Sure enough, the Boca Raton woman didnt want to go to work at her great uncles house, according to the story, so she told cops that when she pulled over in broad daylight to change a flat tire, a white guy offered to help, then raped her. Investigators were suspicious right off the bat but it wasnt until her old man phoned the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office and ratted her out that she was arrested. Thank God she didnt claim it was a black guy. Thats happened before in the Sunshine State, with very bad results for black guys. I know its easy to mock this kind of reporting, but consider for a moment that it isnt really journalism „ not in a full sense. Its anesthesiology on the cheap. And you dont even have to sign up for Obamacare. For decades, the venerably tawdry New York Daily News and its ilk have provided regular injections of pain-relief medicine at very little cost to hard-working, long-suffer-ing men and women stuck on subways or in walk-up apartments where eau de diaper is the chief cologne, and the odor of cumin and greasy meat in the curry being cooked on the second floor takes about 10 minutes to reach the seventh floor and create a gas-eous condition that probably violates the Geneva Conventions rules against biologi-cal warfare. They open a New York Daily News, they read this, and suddenly they look around and think, Hey, this isnt so bad. I dont have to claim I got raped if I dont want to go to work, hell no. Ill just claim my grandmother, my dog, my parents and everybody on my block died of cancer, so I had to go to a funeral.Ž In other words, the parade of these stories provides not just news, but a measure of numbing comfort and macabre comedy. Human burgers in a Nigerian restaurant „ for real? Man, maybe that greasy take-out thing from the Chinese-Mexican diner on Second Avenue wasnt so bad, after all. What struck me in the story about the Boca Raton woman, though, was this line: The Florida Highway Patrol reviewed turnpike video and couldnt find images (of) Westovers vehicle anywhere on the recordings.Ž Oh really? And did authorities check the red light cameras that seem to litter the intersections of so many Florida coun-ties now, as well? Weve known for some time that remote policing-by-camera is effective „ at the very least in significantly boosting revenues for various causes and agen-cies, and for doing it without the need to employ trained human beings versed not only in apprehension, but in the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits search and seizure without reasonable cause, and without a judges permission. What troubles me is not so much the cameras themselves, but how theyre employed, where the revenues really go, and what will happen when the technol-ogy becomes much more sophisticated. Soon, for example, policing could be done commonly and county-wide by drone, and maybe not just any drone. Maybe by drones so sophisticated that their cameras can see everything we do in or out of buildings. Maybe drones so capable that they can perform arrests and apprehensions, complete with automated Miranda warnings (unless, of course, Jus-tice Scalia and a few of his colleagues decide that not only is Chicago-style pizza not pizza, but Miranda is just plain unnec-essary). For that matter, I see no reason why we couldnt invent drones that not only monitor and enforce, but also serve as judge, jury and executionerŽ right on the spot, doing away with this expensive and needless jury system that relies on 12 good people and true. Think of our roads in terms of the Internet. We get up in the morning, we get dressed and we go out onto the electronic highway or the asphalt highway. In either case, law enforcement agencies have a right to monitor some of that, dont they? Of course they do. But they do not have a right to watch our every m ove, monitor our personal adventures, or to violate our right to privacy on behalf of safety,Ž do they? No, which is why Edward Snowden has struck so deep a nerve in the American temperament with his revelations about spying on Americans by the National Security Agency, in violation of Constitu-tional prohibitions against it. Too easily, safetyŽ can become synonymous merely with revenue.Ž And thats no way to obtain pain relief.

ON THE ROXX THE SH-BOOMSMarch Find that genius! Beijing Genomics Institute scientists are closing in on a technology to allow parents to choose, from several embry-os, the one most likely to yield the smartest offspring. Londons Daily Mail (in January, referencing recent work in Wired, The Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker) explained that BGI will have identified high-potential math-ematics genes (by mapping the cells of geniuses) so that researchers can search for those among a couples array of embryos. (Most embryos will yield gene arrays resembling their parents, but one embryo is likely betterŽ „ and maybe much better.) One Chinese researcher acknowledged the contro-versialŽ nature of the work, especially in the West,Ž but added, Thats not the case in China.Ž The parental price tag on finding the smartest kid? Expensive, said a supporter, but less than upgrading an average kid via Harvard, or even a private prep school.Can’t possibly be trueQ This (was) my life,Ž said musician Boujemaa Razgui in December, refer-ring to the 13 handmade flutes that he played professionally, and now theyre gone.Ž Arriving in New York City from Madrid with the 13 woodwinds in his checked luggage, he was shocked to dis-cover that U.S. Customs had destroyed them without notice because woodŽ is a restricted agriculturalŽ import. (Unsophisticated agents had apparent-ly regarded them as mere bamboo.) Mr. Razgui plays all over the world including, since 2002, with the Boston Camerata ensemble staged by the citys Museum of Fine Arts. Q A Georgia Regents Universitys dental school official acknowledged in December that the school would likely continue to conduct research on the mouths of stray dogs solely to test a coating that might inhibit infections in humans dental implants. The work is controversial because the only way to study the installed implants is to remove them, after euthanizing the dogs. (Also, the research is sponsored by commercial dental-implant compa-nies for a market dominated by elective cosmetic patients.) (However, a GRU professor noted that implants are also functional, as they inhibit infections that might reach the hearts lining and other locations.) Q Americans who have grown accustomed to hearing that the U.S. is mili-tarily without peer might have been shocked to learn in January (as CBS News reported from a Pentagon inter-view) that America has practically zero capabilityŽ either to detect enemy cruise missiles fired at Washington, D.C., from offshore, or even worse, to defend against (them).Ž The Pentagons interim makeshift solution to protect the U.S. capital, said an official, is to launch two blimps, soon, to float two miles up over a base in Maryland to try to spot any such missiles.Q In February, a California Highway Patrol officer handcuffed and threatened to arrest a firefighter performing an emer-gency roadside rescue along Interstate 805 in Chula Vista, Calif., because the res-cuer would not move his truck from the fast lane, where it was impedingŽ traffic. Firefighters are required to block lanes during rescues, specifically to impedeŽ traffic for their own protection and that of victims nearby. CHP and the Chula Vista firefighters later jointly called the incident a miscommunication.ŽUnclear on the conceptQ Oregon inmate Sirgiorgio Clardy, 26, filed a handwritten $100 million lawsuit in January against Nike for inadequate-ly marketing its Air Jordans. Mr. Clar-dy, a convicted pimp, had received an enhancedŽ penalty for using a danger-ous weaponŽ to maim the face of a john, i.e., he had stomped and kicked a man after accusing him of skipping out on a payment, and the dangerous weaponŽ was apparently his shoe. Mr. Clardy said Nike bears at least some responsibility for his incarceration because it failed to label the shoe a dangerous weapon.ŽQ Officials at the Emu Plains Correctional Center near Sydney, Australia, announced in January that they had pre-empted a planned escape by two female inmates, ages 32 and 21, after finding a 60-foot length of tied-together sheets in a cell. Nonetheless, the officials said they were puzzled, in that Emu Plains is a one-story facility, enclosed, wrote the Daily Telegraph, by a not particularly highŽ fence.PerspectiveRecent U.S. Supreme Court rulings have made clear that only in the case of murder can a juvenile be given a life sentence without possibility of paroleŽ (and never a death sentence). Under-18s, the court said, must get a meaning-ful opportunityŽ to mature and redeem themselves behind bars. The U.S. Con-stitution aside, apparently some Florida judges disagree and have subsequently sentenced juveniles to 50 years or longer for non-murders, in some cases assuring that the release date will be beyond the inmates natural life expectancy. In one case found by a Barry University law school program, a juvenile convicted of gun robbery and rape had his earlier life-without-parole sentence reducedŽ to consecutive sentences totaling 170 years. Critics said the Supreme Court should recognize that some juveniles are already thoroughly incorrigible.Ž Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

A16 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYSomething from the freezer. And there, in the back, was a boxed pizza. Perfect. I took it out, turned on the oven and went and sat on the couch,Ž she says. Then I remembered that I hadn t looked to see how long to cook it. I went back into the kitchen and looked at the box, but I couldnt read it. It was all a blur. So I turned the box upside down.Ž That was when Scott walked in. Why, her 43-year-old son asked himself, was his mom trying to read upside-down? I went back to the couch,Ž Mrs. Didia says, and the next thing I know, my sons kneeling in front of me, asking if I knew my name. And I saw a name, my name, written in the air, in my handwrit-ing. The name was just floating there . but I couldnt read it.Ž Scott ran outside, where his older brother, John, was watering plants. Scott said, Somethings wrong with Mom,Ž John remembers. I went in and said, Do you want a glass of water? She just kept shaking her head and saying, I dont know whats going on. When I put a glass to her lips, the water dribbled out of her mouth. Then I knew. I put two-and-two together.Ž Two-and-two added up to a stroke. Scott called 911. Within minutes, the North Palm Beach Fire Rescue ambu-lance arrived at the house, and then, Mrs. Didia says, Five big guys are running in, and Im off the couch and bounce, bounce, bounce, Im out the door.Ž From the moment the Didia brothers phoned for help until their mother reached Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, just 19 minutes had passed. The important thing about this case,Ž says neurologist Dr. Arun Talkad, was for the EMS, and her sons, to recognize that it was a stroke. That was amazing.Ž Most people, he says, can recognize the symptoms of a heart attack: chest discomfort; discomfort in the arms, neck, back or stomach; shortness of breath; feeling light-headed, weak or faint. Since February 1964, when a proclamation by then-President Lyndon B. Johnson created Heart Month, a wide-spread education campaign has taught Americans how to identify a heart attack. Although heart disease remains a major problem „ each year, about 715,000 Americans suffer a heart attack and about 600,000 die from heart dis-ease, making it the leading cause of death for both men and women „ this 50th Heart Month anniversary can also be celebrated with the knowledge of tremendous progress made in both the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Dr. Talkad wishes more people would learn the signs and symptoms of strokes, the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States „ and the nations third leading cause of death. Weve been conditioned to know that chest pain means a heart attack,Ž says Dr. Talkad, who serves on the staffs of St. Marys Medical Center and Good Samaritan Medical Center, in addition to being Stroke Medical Director for Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, People often blow off the symptoms of a stroke because (in most cases) theres no pain.Ž Dr. Talkad was in the ICU when he heard the pager broadcast throughout the Medical Center: Stroke alert, Prior-ity One; Stroke alert, Priority One.Ž The stroke team, which he headed, knew the drill: Whatever youre doing, drop it and hot-foot it to the ER. He arrived to find Mrs. Didia on an examin-ing table, about to undergo a CT scan. When the alert goes off, it goes off in the CT-scan area, too,Ž Dr. Talkad says. They wait for this patient, even if some-ones on the table. And if they are, they take them off, because a CT scan could take 10, 15, 20 minutes.Ž With the CT scan, Dr. Talkad was hoping for a negative stroke,Ž a lack of evidence that bleeding in the brain „ a hemorrhagic stroke „ had taken place. Had that happened, there would have been little help for her. But, no, thered been no bleeding. Mrs. Didia had, most likely, suffered an ischemic stroke, caused by a blood clot „ the cause of 85 percent of all strokes. But Dr. Talkad needed to be absolutely certain of the diagnosis, since other conditions „ a seizure, high blood pressure, low blood sugar, electrolyte imbalance „ can share the signs and symptoms of a stroke. Dr. Talkad began asking Mrs. Didia questions, even as she was being wheeled to a room in the ER. The EMS crew had noted that she was having language problems and weakness on her right side. Dr. Talkad showed her picture cards, to determine her ability to describe what she saw. The cards depicted kitchen scenes: In one, children were balancing on a tottering stool, attempting to peer into a cabinet. A second showed a woman at a sink that was overflowing. Mrs. Didias effort to translate the pictures into words failed. She came up with some sentences, but mixed in with some gibberish words,Ž he says. She was having prob-lems with a typical stroke-like pattern.Ž The next test: repeat the common, everyday words the doctor recited for her „ mama, thanks, huckleberry, base-ball player. But, no, she was unable to do that either, confirming the stroke diag-nosis of John and Scott Didia and the North Palm Beach EMS crew. Now that he was certain, treatment was clear „ and quick. An injection of the clot-busting drug tPA, tissue plas-minogen activator, a blood thinner. Its a synthesized version of a protein in our own bodies,Ž Dr. Talkad says. Clots are forming and being taken care of by the protein naturally; its happen-ing all the time. This is a very potent version of that.Ž Its effect was immediate. Within five minutes,Ž John Didia says, she was talking to the doctor like noth-ing had happened.Ž It had all happened so fast, so unexpectedly, so utterly without warning. Before that day, shed been in good health. When told by Dr. Talkad at the hospital that shed had a stroke, she recalls, I said to myself, Hes crazy. Why would I have a stroke?Ž Time is everything with a stroke. For every untreated minute, two million brain cells die. And although the body contains about 100 million brain cells, rapid treatment is essential to reduce the amount of brain damage. To be effective, tPA must be given within three hours from the onset of the stroke, Dr. Talkad says „ 4 hours the absolute maximum. With that in mind, one of his priorities has been outreach education. Weve gone out to EMS crews and told them what to look for,Ž he says, and told them to call it in ahead of their arrival at the hospital, so we can be ready.Ž Which is just what the North Palm Beach Fire Rescue crew did, having been alerted that a stroke was suspected. I was big-time terrified because, you know, this is your mom,Ž John Didia says, recalling that day. You feel helpless. It was just lucky that Scott and I were at home. Mom couldve been at the store, or at the wheel of the car.Ž Mrs. Didia knows that only too well. If I was home alone, I wouldnt have recognized it,Ž she says. I probably would have just gone upstairs and gone to sleep. I dont know if Id have woken up.Ž Q STROKEFrom page 1 Heart Attack Warning SignsChest Discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort. Other signs may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, lightheadedness, or unusual fatigue. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particu-larly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.Stroke Warning SignsF.A.S.T. is an acronym for the most common signs and symptoms of stroke. These signs tend to appear suddenly. Face. Ask the person to smile. Does the face look uneven? Arms. Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift down or is it unable to move? Speech. Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Does their speech sound strange? Strange speech could be slurred, the wrong words may come out, or the person is unable to speak. Time to call 9-1-1. A sudden severe headache with no known cause and sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes are also warning signs of a stroke. When you notice any of these signs, check the time so you’ll know when the rst symptoms appeared. If given within three hours, the clot-busting drug tPA may reduce long-term disability in the most common type of stroke. Friendships can be valued without spending lots of moneyJills head was throbbing. She hated being put on the spot. Her friend Terri had called excitedly to report that the group had snagged a reservation at the pricey new steak house that was impossible to get into. Jill hated that this group never paid attention to price tags. Jills husband had been on her case lately about keeping costs down. Jill never knew how to handle the situation with her friends. She was afraid theyd think less of her if she told them the real reason she sometimes hesitated when they made plans. She worried excessively that the others would be critical of the way she dressed or would take issue with any decision she made. She was so consumed by her insecurities she could never relax. In many social circles, there are subtle and not-so-subtle pressures and stigmas when it comes to spending money. We believe that to be part of the group, we must be in a position to spend and travel the way they do, and that the others will look down on us if we cant (or choose not to) keep up. Some of us end up agreeing to ill-advised social obligations because were just not able to comfortably find a way to say NO. We may be ashamed that saying no,Ž somehow implies that we dont measure up. So, we end up enduring an evening we really didnt want to attend or strain our budgets on events were now too stressed to enjoy. Taking responsibility to accept our circumstances and to make the most of whats available to us requires self-awareness and strength of character. When we covet the possessions and opportunities others have, we may place ourselves in a position of doubting our own abilities or success. Sadly, we may become distracted and stressed, attempting to ascertain the other persons reaction to us, rather than being able to enjoy the moment. Many of us are better able to let down our hair and be ourselves when were mingling with others who share similar social circumstances. And, of course, those in a more fortunate situation may feel awkward as well. They may have worked hard to achieve their goals, and may genuinely wish to enjoy their accomplishments without feeling apologetic or defen-sive. They may be truly appreciative for their good fortunes and are conscious that showing sensitivity and tact is the right thing to do. They may worry that others will find them braggado-cios or condescending if they mention their comings and goings. And, they may also find themselves defensively holding back from discussing where theyve been or sharing opportunities that have come their way for fear of hurting anothers feelings. Of course, there are always the insensitive sorts who will drone on and on about their acquisitions, with little thought that the other person might be struggling to pay the monthly bills. But, theyre in a group by themselves. There are steps we all can take to equalize and normalize the differences. It may not be advantageous for any of us to continually place ourselves in stressful social environments. On the other hand, we may find ways to hold our own without defen-siveness or apology. There are still ways to enjoy quality time with loving friends where finances do not have to come into play. Sometimes, theres value in being upfront with friends, stating clearly that we have to be careful about our spend-ing. We sometimes sell our friends short, making assumptions about them that just arent the case. Our friends may be all too willing to modify plans to consider everyones position. They actually may be relieved. When we demonstrate over time that were giving of ourselves and offer an interpersonal dimension that tran-scends materialism, others will often value the special contributions we add to their lives. Many of us appreciate the virtues of true friendships „ quali-ties that can never be measured by price tags or labels. Q HEALTHY LIVING linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com

Doctor, what can I do for the dark circles and bags under my eyelids? First, we have to understand the cause of the “bags”. (No, these are not packed ready for a long trip!) In reality, the fullness or bags in the lower eyelid are fat pockets bulging out from under the eye muscle. There is a membrane that holds the fat in the orbit and age, sleep, and allergies all adversly affect the fat causing it to swell with fluid and stretch this membrane. With time the membrane stays stretched and the bags are present all the time. The dark circles are due to a trough created between the bulging fat and the bone. This hollow creates a shadow that is exacerbated by the thin skin and veins. Allergies and chronic sinus problems cause the fat to swell, the eyes to itch and burn. An allergy work up and medical treament of sinus problems will help. The simplest method to correct the hollow is with an injectable filler. By carefully plumping up the depression, the shadow is eliminated and the orbital skin is smooth. Unfortunately, the filler is temporary lasting six to twelve months. A more permanent treatment is a lower lid blepharoplasty in which the fat is teased out from under the eyelid muscle. By making the incision inside the lower eyelid, it is completely camoflaged and hidden from view. If the skin has been permanently damaged from repeated sun exposure, creating a true dark circle, a deep chemical peel will accom-plish two things. First, it will bleach and lighten the skin. Second, as it heals it will stimulate collagen formationa and tighten the skin.

I’ve been embarrassed with them slipping off while eating and talking. Should I consider implants? Answer: Yes, you should absolutely consider implants. The reason your dentures no longer fit is because you are loosing jaw bone. Dental implants maintain and stimu-late the jaw bone in which they are placed. This means instead of loosing valuable facial bone due to tooth loss, implants can preserve and maintain that bone. Using implants to hold dentures in place is an excellent way to stabilize your teeth. You will be able to chew similar to if you had your natural teeth, enjoying the foods you once avoided without fear of any embar-rassing moments. One other benefit implants provide when incorporated in the fabrication of dentures is that they allow your teeth to be placed more favorably for facial esthetics. As you loose bone, it is first lost from the outside in. That is why your face appears to collapse. Implants allow your new teeth to be placed more to the outside of the ridge and resist the influences of your facial muscle, giving you a fuller more youthful look.Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

It is important to remember to be patient and try not to get discour-aged. Ask for help from the maternity nurses or the hospital lactation con-sultant the first few times you breast-feed. The more often you breast-feed, the more milk your breasts will pro-duce and the more natural it will feel to breast-feed your baby. As a new mother, you want a high level of care for your baby and a high level of comfort for you. Good Samari-tan Medical offers a breast-feeding and newborn care combo class that will provide you with the assurance and knowledge needed to make breast-feeding a rewarding experience. You will learn about breast-feeding ben-efits, positioning, techniques, nutri-tion, pumping and going back-to-work. Also, learn the fundamentals of caring for your new infant with hands-on instruction. Topics include diapering, feeding, bathing, comforting, bonding and safety to assist in your journey as a new parent. The next class is Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. Call 650-6023 to register.Why breast milk is best Breast milk is best for babies because infants who are exclusively breast-fed for six months have lower risks of ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses. Since breast milk contains the optimum balance of nutrients, it is easier to digest than commercial formula, and the antibod-ies in breast milk help boost your bab ys immune system. In the long run, babies who are breast-fed are less likely to develop childhood obe-sity. Mothers who breast-feed typi-cally experience a delayed return of their menstrual periods, have a lower risk of breast and ovarian cancers, and may lose weight faster after giv-ing birth. To get started breast-feeding, wash your hands and cradle your baby close to your breast in a comfortable posi-tion. Use pillows for support if neces-sary. Make sure your babys mouth is wide open as he or she takes in part of the area around the nipple. Your baby is latched on correctly if you feel a gentle pulling sensation on your breast and hear a rhythmic sucking and swallowing pattern. Try not to supplement with formula for four to six weeks even if you feel that you are not producing enough milk and your baby is always hungry. Your body will make more milk in response to your babys increased need to nurse. To make sure your baby is getting enough breast milk, he or she should have at least six to eight very wet diapers per day by six days of age and gain about one pound per month. Newborns typically nurse every two to three hours during the first few weeks. Watch for signs that your baby is getting hungry, such as stir-ring, stretching, lip movements or sucking motions. Let your baby set the pace and thoroughly nurse from one breast until it feels soft (about 15 to 20 minutes). Try burping your baby before offering the second breast. If your baby is not hungry after breast-feeding on one side, start the next breast-feeding session with the sec-ond breast. You may feel some tenderness at first, but breastfeeding should not be painful. To prevent soreness, let the milk dry naturally on the nipples and change bra pads often between feed-ings to keep them dry. You can apply lanolin after feeding if your nipples get dry or cracked. Your baby will eat what you eat, so avoid alcohol, eat a healthy diet and drink lots of fluids. Get plenty of rest and dont smoke. Take medications only with your doctors approval. In addition to the breast-feeding and newborn care combo class available at Good Samaritan Medical Center, the hospital also offers a breast-feeding support group. The group is a won-derful way for new or expecting moth-ers to exchange information, experi-ences and receive expert guidance from a certified lactation consultant. To sign up for the class, group or both, call 650-6023. For more informa-tion about breastfeeding, talk with your doctor or see goodsamaritanmc.com. Q w b b mark NOSACKAGood Samaritan CEO

The nal round of the 2013 Honda Classic had all the markings of a major championship. The wind was howling at PGA National. Playing conditions on The Champion course were tougher than trigonometry — only ve players broke par and nobody had a bogey-free card on Sunday. And former major champions Keegan Bradley and Geoff Ogilvy were all lined up to make a run at leader Michael Thompson on a drama-lled back nine. Thompson even relied on something he had discovered while nishing second in the 2012 U.S. Open at The Olympic Club. “The big lesson I learned was just not to look at the leader board,” Thompson said. “I think I looked at a leader board one time today, and even then I just kind of blocked it out of my mind.” Thompson knew he had enough on his mind, especially after a wild front nine in which he made three bogeys, two birdies and an eagle to build a four-shot lead that was whittled to one over Ogilvy with two holes to play. That’s when Thompson closed like a major champion. He made par at the difcult par-3 17th, the last leg of the daunting Bear Trap, and refused to play safe on the closing hole. Instead of laying up from 240 yards, he drilled a 5-wood into a greenside bunker and got up and down for a birdie that gave him his rst PGA TOUR victory. “This is a childhood dream come true,” Thompson said. “I’ve dreamed of playing out here since I was 7 years old, and to win, it’s just unbelievable.” M ICHAEL THOMPSON OVERCOMES THE ELEME N TS AND A CROWDED LEADER B OARD AT PGA NATIO N AL R ESORT & S PA ’S CHAMPION COURSE TO SECURE HIS FIRST PGA TOUR VICTORY AT T HE H ON DA C LASSIC 2013 REVIEWTire Kingdom Fireworks Spectaculars Friday and Saturday, Feb 28 & Mar 1, 7:30 p.m.Everyone will be awed by the spectacular shows of light and sound perfecting the end to two great days of golf and fun!

MYERS, FL 33917 PARKWIDE WI-FI con O cierge noun 1. a resident in an apartment building especially in France who serves as doorkeeper, landlor ds representative, and janitor 2. a usually multilingual hotel staff member who handles luggage and mail, makes reservations, and arranges tours; broadly: a person employed (as by a business) to make arrangements or run errands Well, that was then, as they say. This is now. And, now „ following the lead of cameras and picture frames and tele-phones „ the concierge has gone digi-tal. Not the hotel version. No, no, not that. This is a hospital version „ an elec-tronic ombudsman that attaches to the wall and offers patients access to all manner of services: movies; email; Inter-net access; games, medical-education videos; the hospitals breakfast, lunch and dinner menu; even Skype. Just what the doctor ordered. Really. About three years ago, Dr. Rahul Aggar-wal, a cardiologist at Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical Cen-ter, joined the board of directors at JCS Enterprises, a Jupi-ter-based company that manufactures and markets one of several electronic databases known as a Virtual Concierge. A fortuitous connec-tion for both doctor and hospital. We were approached by Dr. Aggarwal, who pitched us on the idea,Ž says Larry Coomes, CEO of the Medical Center. We thought, wouldnt it be great to offer our patients some of the same services they do in a hotel.Ž And because the Medical Center was the first in Palm Beach County to sign up for digital-concierge service, it came with a most welcome perk: It was a pilot program,Ž Mr. Coomes says, with the pride of an administrator who knows cost-effective when he sees it. There was no capital outlay. The installation was free.Ž That initial installation „ 18 WiFi/ Internet-based units „ meant a whop-ping savings that Mr. Coomes estimates at between $150,000 and $200,000. (The cost for equipping a 200-bed hospital, Dr. Aggarwal says, would be around $1.5 million to $2 million.) Locating them on the orthopedic surgical floor made sense for a trial run. Patients there tend to stay a few days, days when mobility is limited and distraction welcome. For $19.99, they can watch all the movies they want; play online chess or solitaire; watch a video about whatever procedure they underwent; wake up, or doze off, to the soothing sound of a waterfall or rainfall or the crackle of autumn leaves; call for another blanket or a softer pillow; visit with faraway family or friends via Skype; or check out what they might want to order for dinner. Someday, probably in the not-toodistant future, Mr. Coomes says, theyll be able to delve into their own medical records online, a possibility not yet ready for prime time. JCS Enterprises developed the medical concierge about two years ago, Dr. Aggarwal says, and decided to embark on a trial run to gather patient feedback, which has been mostly favorable. The most receptive patients are 60 and younger,Ž the doctor says. Those in their 70s and 80s tend to say, Just give me television; dont bother with the bells and whistles. Yes, the TVs are still there. Nothings been taken away; everythings been added.Ž In an increasingly tech-savvy „ and tech-dependent world „ Dr. Aggar-wal can envision a time when an aging baby-boom population will not only be comfortable with bells, whistles and touch-screens but will expect them. For now, the hospitals nursing staff has been trained on the devices so they can coach patients in their usage. It was one more thing to learn,Ž Mr. Coomes says, but theyre happy that the patients are enjoying them. As I walk around the floors, I get anecdotal comments. Patients say it makes it feel more like being at home.Ž Keeping the devices on a simple-tolearn level was essential. We used my grandmother as a model,Ž Dr. Aggarwal says. If my grandmother was trying to use this device, could she navigate it with little help?Ž Its developers decided she could, and feedback from the hos-pitals staff deems it fairly self-explan-atory. One of the early complaints about the units was that the blue light that glowed from the 20-inch screens was bright enough to be intrusive; it kept patients awake at night. The solution: adding a Sleep butt on that made the screen go black. Dr. Aggarwals entry into the digital concierge arena began when „ on a whim,Ž he says „ he met with one of JCSs founders and started talking about what the company wanted to accom-plish. I thought that was an exciting proposition,Ž the doctor says. It makes one think outside the box. This was something outside my comfort zone.Ž The digital concierge itself appears to be comfortable in a number of zones. At Roger Dean Stadium, the call for hot dogs . .getcha hot dogs here!Ž can be answered by a fan requesting deliv-ery to his or her seat, via cell phone plugged into one of the units (which also display ads for local businesses). Expanding its reach „ to other hospitals, other venues „ is the companys next step, Dr. Aggarwal says. He also says this: Our objective is to make life better.Ž Q At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, patients may email, Skype, order movies and play gamesBY MARY JANE FINEmj“ ne@” oridaweekly.com ‘Virtual concierge’ offers all kinds of services COURTESY PHOTO Just what the doctor ordered: A computer screen serves as a virtual concierge for patients at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.COOMES AGGARWAL

Bureaus across the country are seeing a rash of reports of ring and runsŽ or The One-Ring ScamŽ on cell phones recently, where returning a missed call from an Unknown num-ber might be tempting, but it could be costly. Here is how it works:Consumers in several states report receiving calls on their mobile phones in which an unknown caller hangs up after one ring. When the cell owner returns the call, they are billed $19.95 for the interna-tional call fee. They may hear music, then advertising while they are unknowingly con-nected to a caller-paid toll service or chat line located outside the country. At $9 per minute, these calls can add up quickly. The Caribbean area codes that appear on the caller ID often have been reported to be from the Dominican Republic (809), Jamaica (876), British Virgin Islands (284), Grenada (473) and Dominica (767). The practice of third parties placing unauthorized charges on wireless accounts is called cramming.Ž If you have fallen for this scam, be sure to alert your cell phone carrier immediately and keep an eye on your cell phone bill. The earlier you docu-ment the fraud, the better your chances of having some or all of the charges removed. To protect yourself from unauthorized charges on your cell phone bill, the BBB offers the following tips: Q When in doubt, don t pick up or call back. If you dont recognize an out-of-state telephone number on your caller ID, ignore it. Q Understand your mobile bill. Be sure to keep track of what services you pay for, that way you will be able to determine if any charges are unauthor-ized. Q Keep a close eye on monthly statements. Anyone can become a victim of bill cramming. Monitoring your bill is the best way to determine whether or not youve been affected. The sooner you spot any unexpected charges, the sooner you can stop them. Q Add restrictions to your account. Contact your service provider to see if you can restrict third-party billing on your account. Q Inform other users on your mobile phone plan. Its important to let other friends and family members on your cell phone plan know about this scam, and to ignore phone numbers they do not recognize. Q Bottom Line „ If its Unknown, leave it alone. Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYBank of America announced the addition of Danielle M. Crouch as project manager of enterprise marketing and local delivery in Palm Beach County. Among her responsibilities, Ms. Crouch will work with market leader-ship to maintain community relation-ships; execute and manage local initiatives, events and projects; and moni-tor the local founda-tion and sponsorship budgets to ensure alignment with local market priorities.

Just like all of us, classical music lives and breathes. Make it part of your lifestyle. Tune to Classical South Florida on the radio or online. Its in your nature. Entering and exiting movie theaters and equity marketsEquity investing is similar to going to a movie „ not the movie itself, but the process of the entering and taking one s seat and, ultimately, exiting the theater. Most typically, a Friday night showing of a good movie will allow cinema to be near capacity. Viewers do not arrive en masse; they arrive piecemeal over a 15to 20-minute window. The earlier one arrives, the less confusion there is in getting a seat. The more crowded the room, the less easily a seat is found. This is a bit like equity investing in that investors arrive gradually and, in this recent mega-bull market, they have been coming piecemeal to the equity show since 2009s bear market low. Surely, some leave the movie mid-view-ing, but most stay to watch the whole show „ just as some investors exited this bull market in prior years and oth-ers are still waiting for the peak. Exit is a little more challenging in that everyone wants to leave at the same time. It requires some maneuvering to make an exit. So it is with stocks. But having sat in a theater in which there had been a fire, I understand that in a crisis there is no order and there is desperation to find the quickest exit door and leave. Most who originally took their seats never even pondered the need for an exit door. They never even considered their seat location rela-tive to an exit door. This, too, is a bit like leaving the U.S. equity market when there is a crash, a crisis, chaos, etc. There is a rush to cre-ate liquidity and leave the market. Since many have never been faced with this kind of crisis and they never made plans for an emergency exit from the markets, they are confused about what to do. Bear market corrections happen as well, and most investors have no plan how to handle an equity crisis. Logic suggests that a worn-out, old theater might have greater probability of a safety challenge. Likewise, logic suggests that a worn-out equity bull market definitely has greater probability of peaking and a bear market emerging. When is it time to worry that the current equity bull is old and worn-out? Mostly possibly now. The phrase long in the toothŽ has been overused to describe the current bull market. The website WiseGeek.com paints a picture of this idioms meaning and history. The main theory behind the meaning of this phrase is that it has to do with determining the age of horses. Horse teeth grow more prominent with age, and at the same time, the gums recede. As a result, an older horse will appear to have long teeth. Many people would examine the teeth of horses before they purchased them in order to determine the horses age.Ž And over time, the idiom has come to refer to the age of people and to the age of bull markets. One way to determine if a bull market is really long in the tooth is by looking at how long (in calendar days) and how high (in percentages) the bull runs after the old/previous high has been taken out. For example, the prior high in the S&P was October 2007 at 1576; that high was taken out April 10, 2013, when the S&P closed at 1587. And the question to be posed is: How much farther in time and percentage gain before the peak „ before the onset of a new bear market?Ž The table reflects what (was) found upon focusing on the 13 bull/bear instances, since the S&P 500 was inaugurated in the 1950s, in which, fol-lowing a bear market ... a new high (was reached).Ž (Market Watch, Mark Hulbert, Feb. 28, 2013, Would new Dow record set bear market trap?Ž) So, since 1954, how many calendar days have passed between the date of a new market high and the eventual mar-ket peak? 1. The best case was an additional 711 calendar days. 2. The worst case was an additional 132 days. 3. The median was 417 (and preference is given to the median as it takes out the outliers). From April 10, 2013, the bull market has continued another 281 days through Jan. 15, 2014, the most recent peak. So, since 1954, what percent additional gain was realized between the date of a new market high and eventual market peak? 1. The best case was an additional 222 percent. 2. The worst case was an additional 2 percent. 3. The median was 18 percent (and preference is given to the median as it takes out the outliers). From April 10, 2013, the bull market has gained another 17 percent through Jan. 15, 2014, the most recent peak. This long toothŽ might keel over any day „ and it might set a new record. But a reality-based investor will not turn a blind eye to these statistics which infer probability of events. A retiree, who thought recouping the loss of 2008-9 might not happen in his/her lifetime, will certainly take heed. Investors should prepare their portfolio for the inevitable equity decline as each and every prior bull market has been followed by a bear market. Talk to your investment adviser and seek counsel from experts in specific areas of investing as some aspects of investing are broad-based and other areas require specialization and specific investment licenses.

So the old 1950s favorite, Chip-pendale furniture, has now been replaced by 1950s Eames pieces. And 18th-century English Staffordshire ceramics are not as wanted as much as Ohio-made 20th-cen-tury Rookwood pottery. Many auction gal-leries are holding special auctions that fea-ture furniture, glass, pottery, jewelry and even toys made after 1950. A unique table made by Judy Kensley McKie (b. 1944) sold at a 2012 Rago auction for $23,750. The artist started making furniture soon after she graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1966. She wanted to furnish her home, so she taught herself how to make one-of-a-kind pieces. By the 1980s, she was receiving national awards for her work. Her tables were made of carved and painted wood, bronze, marble and even plastic. Many resembled animals, including horses, bears and rhinoceroses. They are imaginative, often humorous and very usable. McKie is one of many studio artists who have been working since the 1950s and whose works are now included in museum collections. Collectors should look for quality in the almost-new as well as the old when going to sales.Q: I have a sterling-silver bracelet and earrings that were made in Denmark. Each earring is shaped like two leaves, and the bracelet is made of links of two leaves each. The back is marked Ster-ling A8K Denmark.Ž Can you tell me who made it and w hat its worth? A: The mark actually is A&K.Ž It was used by Aarre & Krogh of Rander, Jutland, Den-mark. The company was in business from 1949 to 1990. Its known for modernist designs of stylized leaves and flowers. Your set could sell for $200 to $250. Q: My wifes estate included a one-liter Lalique perfume bot-tle that has two birds on the stopper. It is 9 inches tall and 6 inches wide and still is filled with perfume. Can you give me a value? A: The perfume bottle was designed in 1947 by Marc Lalique for Nina Riccis fragrance LAir du Temps.Ž The clear glass bottle has fluted sides and a frost-ed stopper with the fra-grances iconic figural doves in flight. This 9-inch bottle is a fac-tice,Ž a store display bottle. A few LAir du Temps perfume bottles the size of yours have sold at auction for $200 to more than $500. Q: I inherited a large neon clock from my uncle, who was a meat inspector in Los Angeles in the 1950s. It was made by the Glo-Dial Corp. and has the words Hungar-ian SalamiŽ around the dial. It has green neon lighting and is 32 inch-es across. The patent number is 1994950. Can you tell me the history and value of this clock?A: The Glo-Dial Corp. was in business from the 1930s until the 1950s or later. Charles Hoffritz, who founded Glo-Dial in Los Ange-les, was granted a patent for an illuminated clock dial in 1934. The dial had a black background, beveled white hands, white numerals and a neon tube concealed behind the dial. The white surfaces diffused the light, which reflect-ed off the glass covering the dial and illuminated the numbers and hands. Advertising clocks are collectible. Your clock is worth about $400 to $500.Q: Years ago, I bought a box full of dinnerware made with rice carefully imbedded and baked into the porcelain. The rice pieces are translucent when the piece is held toward the light. The dishes are white with blue designs and blue dragons in the middle. The bottom of the dishes are marked Made in China,Ž and there are Chinese charac-ters above the mark. Can you tell me something about these dishes? A: Although this type of porcelain is sometimes called riceŽ porcelain, its not made with rice. The porcelain is pierced to make rice-shaped holes before the first firing. Later the holes are filled with glaze and the piece is refired, creat-ing the translucent rice-like appearance. Rice porcelainŽ was first made in China in the 1300s, but the technique may have originated in Persia more than a thou-sand years ago. Rice porcelain also has been made in modern times. The words Made inŽ on your dinnerware indicate that your dishes were made after 1915. A 20th-century rice porcelain dinner plate sells for about $10 to $15. Tip: Do not store scrapbooks or other paper items on unlined wooden shelves. The acid in wood is harmful to paper, textiles and many plastics. Line the shelves with acid-free paper. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Not old enough to be a legal antique, it was important enough to sell for $23,750 at a 2012 auction of 20th-century art and antiques held at Rago Arts & Auction Center of Lambertville, N.J. The table is 29 inches high and is made of painted wood, granite and copper. It is marked “JKM” for the artist Judy Kensley McKie.

John Bradway named marketing director for Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY After a long career in South Florida and more than a year in Manhattan, veteran hotelier John D. Bradway has decided theres no place like Palm Beach. Appointed director of marketing at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa last August, the hospitality professional who spent 13 years at The Breakers, is now back in town, leading the rebranding and sales initiatives at his new post. And if Mr. Bradway has his way, the independently owned resort will become the shining star among the Forbes five-star/AAA five-diamond hotels in the world. We are pleased to welcome John Bradway back to Palm Beach, and feel very fortunate to have such an accomplished hospitality sales and marketing executive on the team at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa,Ž Michael King, managing director, said in a pre-pared statement. In his career, John has led significant revenue growth as well as the reposition-ing and brand revitalization of two leading independent luxu-ry resorts in the past. We are delighted to have his marketing expertise and indepth knowl-edge of the region as we launch Eau Palm Resort & Spa this season.Ž In his new role, Mr. Bradway is responsible for launching the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa brand and directing all marketing efforts of the 309-room luxury resort with a redefined position and recreated guest experience, carving a unique niche in Floridas hos-pitality marketplace. His duties include all public relations, digital marketing, cre-ative development, advertising, community outreach and spon-sorships, as well as the devel-opment of packages and pro-motions, all under the resorts strategic and tactical marketing initiatives. My team and I are excited to attract the most affluent tastemakers who desire to experience effortless living. Its been rewarding to read so many complimentary comments and reviews about the new brand in such a short amount of time. Those endorsements are a great testa-ment to the devoted team that we have at Eau Palm Beach,Ž Mr. Bradway noted in the prepared statement. A graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, Mr. Bradway began his hospitality career in Palm Beach at The Breakers, where, over a period of 14 years, his roles included assistant club operations manager, direc-tor of reservations, director of strate-gic marketing and ultimately, director of innovation. He also served as director of marketing at Round Hill Hotel & Villas in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Q Haile Shaw & Pfaffenberger attorney gets WXEL Corporate Ambassador Award SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY In late January, Jupiter resident and WXEL honorary trustee Patrick Park hosted a cocktail reception at his home in The Bears Club to help WXEL-TV, the areas local pub-lic television station and PBS affiliate, celebrate and honor several community members for their commitment to the station. At the reception, Phil DiComo, a partner in the law firm of Haile Shaw & Pfaffenberger, P.A., received the WXEL Cor-porate Ambassador Award for his unparalleled support and long-time commitment to WXEL. In 2012, when Barry University, the previous station owner, agreed to work with WXEL's management group to turn control of the station over to a local nonprofit board led by WXEL CEO Ber-nie Henneberg and a team of public TV and fundraising professionals, Mr. Henneberg turned to Mr. DiComo. With his extensive public broadcasting knowledge and experience, Mr. DiComo negotiated and documented a series of transactions neces-sary to enable WXEL-TV to be reborn as a community-based, nonprofit, educational television station serving the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast. Also, Madeline and Sidney Forbes received the WXEL Com-munity Ambassadors award. Q Phil DiComo John D.

And that is the premise of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre s current production of Jon Robin Baitzs Other Desert Cities,Ž which continues through March 2. Andrea Conte stars as Brooke, a young novelist who returns home to Palm Springs for the holidays and tells her relatives that she is about to pub-lish a book unearthing a deep family tragedy. Cliff Burgess, Angie Radosh, Susan Cella and former Threes Com-panyŽ star Richard Kline round out the cast of this dysfunctional family. It seems as though the play is on just about every regional theaters want list. Its a well-written play, its a wellconstructed play; its funny and genu-ine „ simultaneously,Ž said director Peter Flynn, who some years ago led the Maltz production of Man of La Mancha,Ž and more recently has pro-ductions at the Guthrie Theater and Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Its a story about family to which we all can relate at sometime or another and it does it in a really well-written manner,Ž he said.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSMy kind of threesomeI ts never easy being the third wheel, that lonely extra party at meals and get-togethers. Thankfully, I have friends such as Ethan and Melanie, the kind of good-natured, down-to-earth people who always make me feel welcome „ even when I show up without a date. It helps, too, that they live a charmed life, the kind of existence Id like to step right into: They bought their house at a good price when the market was down; he has a stable job; shes able to stay home with their toddler. Even their dog is cute. Theyre blessed with the kind of solid, peaceful life that makes me wish Id hurry up and settle down. And did I mention the food? Every time Im over for dinner, we eat the sort of multi-course meal people used to serve before everyone started eat-ing out „ meals you read about in cookbooks before phoning-in for Thai. Grilled steak, scalloped potatoes, strawberry parfait. Most people I know never eat that way. In fact, I didnt know people still lived the way Ethan and Melanie live. In our over-hurried, stressed out world, I thought no one had a clean house or a well-behaved child, let alone a hot din-ner on the table every night. It was, in short, my perfect fantasy. Recently, toward the end of another one of those fantastic dinners, as the three of us sat around the table finish-ing dessert, the conversation turned toward celebrities: whom wed seen in what, who was looking terrible and, of course, who was hot. Oh, Hugh Jackman,Ž Melanie said. Hes totally part of my celebrity threesome.Ž I paused, dessert spoon midway to my mouth. Your what?Ž You know, my celebrity threesome.ŽShe looked at Ethan for confirmation, and he nodded. Everybody gets one,Ž he said. The two celebrities youre allowed to hook up with.Ž Even if youre married?Ž I asked.Even if youre married,Ž he said. Like, mines Jessica Biel and Jennifer Aniston.Ž How about you?Ž Melanie asked me. Who would your threesome be?Ž Now this, Ill admit, is not a question Im asked often. Especially not at the dinner table. And, dear reader, Im ashamed to admit what came to mind: our own happy threesome. Not in the way youre no doubt thinking (shame on you), but in a perfectly respectable way, one where Melanie cooks amazing dinners and Ethan does the dishes and I sit on the couch and rub their cute dogs belly. Theyd retire to their room and Id retire to mine, and in the morning Melanie would have eggs and bacon on the table by the time I got up. Wed live in their sweet house with its affordable mortgage and nicely folded towels in the bathrooms, the subtle fragrance of scented candles wafting through the nicely decorated rooms, a little Yanni playing on the stereo. Who wouldnt want to be part of all that? The next day Ethan sent a text to thank me for coming over. Hope that threesome talk wasnt too weird,Ž he said.

For a striking example, consider this deal where West led his singleton club against four spades, dummy playing the deuce, East the seven and South the ace. Declarer led a spade to the king, losing to the ace, and East returned the queen of clubs. It was at this point that South showed his mettle by playing the five instead of the king. As a result, he made the contract. When East continued with the nine of clubs, South followed low and West ruffed, but that was essentially the end of the hand. Declarer s only losers proved to be a spade, a club and a club ruff. Now lets go back to trick three and see what would have happened had South played the king of clubs on Easts queen, which seems the normal thing to do. In that event, South would have gone down one, losing a spade, a club ruff and two more club tricks to Easts J-9. It is not difficult to demonstrate that ducking the queen of clubs is the right play. South cannot go down if he ducks the queen, regardless of how the oppos-ing clubs are divided, but he can go down if he covers the queen with the king and the opening lead turns out to be a singleton. Since making the contract is always declarers No. 1 priority, it must be right to duck the queen at trick three. The ducking play, unusual as it might appear, has everything to gain and nothing to lose. Q

Over the past year, Ms. Trone has proven her leader-ship abilities, first as executive assistant and now as director of the school, which offers courses in painting, drawing, ceramics, jewelry making, photography and sculpture. She also will oversee the ArtCenter s summer camp programs. Ms. Trone managed Jupiter Outdoor Center and Jupiter Pointe Paddling for six years and taught thousands the simple pleasure of the glide. She also is the vol-unteer Project Lead for Expedition Flor-ida 500, a statewide conservation effort. We look forward to Cynthia guiding some of our relationships with other local organizations by integrating environmen-tal themes in the art projects our students create,Ž Ms. Deits said in the statement. Ms. Trone graduated from Colby College with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. A Jersey girl who was raised with Manhattan in her backyard, she spent her 20s and early 30s on the coast of Maine. She raised her three children in Burlington, Vt., and moved to Tequesta in 2005. I invite everyone to stop by the School of Art, see what we do, then enroll in a class,Ž Ms. Trone said. Also, the ArtCenters board recently elected new officers. Frederick B. Putney was elected president; Jeff Lichtenstein, vice president; Tim Peters, treasurer; and Patricia DeAloia, secretary. We are extremely grateful to Colette Meyer, our immediate past president, for her leadership over the past three years,Ž said Ms. Deits, executive director of the Tequesta art school and museum, said in a prepared statement. I know these new officers will bring new ideas and vigor to the Lighthouse ArtCenter as it looks ahead to its second half-century.Ž The new officers experiences are rich, Ms. Deits said in the prepared statement. Mr. Putney, born in Missoula, MT., attended the University of Washington. He served in the U.S. Navy for five years following graduation before obtaining his Ph.D. from Stanford University. Mr. Put-ney served on the faculty of Columbia Business School for 30 years, originating a course in Investment Strategies and addi-tionally serving as deputy vice president for the Health Services Campuses of the university. He is the co-founder of Riv-erside Group, which provides corporate training and development to major insti-tutions and non-profit organizations. He also co-founded Brownson & Associates (Brownson, Rehmus & Foxworths prede-cessor organization) in 1969. Mr. Putney serves as investment strategist for BRF, aside from serving approximately 50 indi-vidual clients as well as a large portion of the Harvard Business School faculty in a special financial advisory program. Mr. Lichtenstein has worked in real estate since 2001. In 2009, he moved to Illustrated Properties and, over the past five years, has marketed and sold more homes in total (509 homes) … with an average price exceeding $500,000 … in Northern and Central Palm Beach County than any other realtor. He earned a degree in business administration at Syracuse, where he met his wife, Veronica; they have two children. Mr. Peters joined Key Private Bank in early 2003, coming from Deutsche (Bank-ers Trust) Private Bank. Prior to this, he worked in New York for more than 20 years with Morgan Stanley, Donaldson Lufkin Jennrette, L. F. Rothschild, and Chase Manhattan Bank. He is a member of the Estate Planning Council and the Florida Bar Tax Section. He also serves on the Helen Wilkes Honors College Advi-sory Board for Florida Atlantic University and is a member of the North Palm Beach Country Club advisory board. He gradu-ated from the University of the South with a BA in English literature, and served in the US Army. Mr. Peters lives in North Palm Beach with his wife, Jean. They have two sons and a daughter. Ms. DeAloia, born and raised in Washington, D.C, was the founder and CEO of Integrated Technologies Inc., a com-pany specializing in advanced technology enterprise network engineering primarily for the Department of Defense. She sold ITEQ in 2007 and retired after more than 30 years in the information technology business. She and her husband, Blaise, have two daughters and five grandchil-dren.

Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia — dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consum-ers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you don’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

My family is West Coast, bu t Im more comfortable on the East Coast and Im coming home for Christmas and I havent been in Palm Springs for six years,Ž said Ms. Conte, who is mak-ing her Maltz debut. Ive written a new book that Im going to share with my family.Ž That book could destroy the family, but it was not written with malice. I feel its coming from a genuine place. Its a very real place and its something that needs to be addressed for her,Ž Ms. Conte said. She paused and Mr. Flynn spoke. You know, something we were dis-cussing earlier this morning in one of his interviews, John Robin Baitz said, I was expiating being a writer as I became aware of how my writing impacts people who are living.Ž He continued.And so he was exploring what is the responsibility of a writer to those who are still living but very close to us. And I think that is the conflict and the drama of this play: Is what Ive done OK? How do I make it OK? Do I need to make it OK? Am I all right with myself if its not OK with anyone but myself? Those are the stakes of the play,Ž he said. But unlike lesser plays, Other Desert CitiesŽ does not take itself too seriously. Its extremely well-written,Ž Ms. Conte said. Theres a sense of humor that permeates it, regardless of how tense the situ-ation becomes. That has to be, Mr. Flynn said.Well, its a family of writers she comes from,Ž he said. Shes the second generation of female writer in this fam-ily, so from that one can infer a very savvy, verbally based relationship, let alone identity, and so humor is used in several fashions, which again is why its something so relatable about it in a family.Ž Ms. Conte should know about that.After all, it was family that led her to life as an actress, after her grandmother took her to see a production of Cin-derella.Ž They had sneaked sweet potatoes into the theater because Ms. Conte was not allowed to eat candy. By the time the curtain rose and the actress sang All Alone in My Corner,Ž she knew acting was her destiny. Ms. Conte went on to study with Burt Reynolds at his institute for the-ater training and at The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute. She now lives in Palm Beach Gardens with her investment banker husband, David Noble, and has had a steady diet of theater and television roles, appear-ing on nationally broadcast shows that include The GladesŽ and Burn Notice,Ž both of which have been pro-duced in South Florida. She hails from a talented family herself „ her eldest brother, Peter Richard Conte, is a noted organist who plays the storied Wanamaker organ in Phila-delphia; her mother comes from an artistic family in Italy. And, yes, she can relate to the family in Other Desert Cities.Ž Its there in any family. When you look in your own life in a family situ-ation, theres a current you jump and swim with,Ž she said. Its like a salmon spawning. Its how these people are.Ž Q MALTZFrom page 1 >>What: “Other Desert Cities” >>When: Through March 2 >>Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

As one au-dience member put it, “It’s like a fashion show, opera, concert, and dance performance all rolled into one.” The passion of the artists spurs them to bring all these elements together into one extraordinary experience. CLASSICAL CHINESE DANCE Classical Chinese dance in Shen Yun shows is a v a st dance system tempered over thousands of years. It is one way in which 5,000 years of Chi-nese culture have been passed down and retained. It is a dance form built on profound traditional aes-thetics. Richly expressive, it portrays personalities and feelings with unparalleled clarity, depicting any scene in a strikingly vivid way. THE SHEN YUN ORCHESTRA The Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra master-f ully blends two of the world’s greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western. Ancient Chinese instruments such as the soul-stirring erhu and the delicate pipa, lead the melody on top of a full Western orchestra, creating a fresh, glorious sound.

But the two of them met in Manhattan, on Lexington Avenue, and Warhol asked her if she wanted to be in movies. She said yes and they started shooting Soap OperaŽ days later. Ms. Holzer was known for her style „ Womans Wear Daily dubbed her Baby JaneŽ „ and she had a mane of golden hair that she teased up. Warhol adored her „ so did the camera. Walk through the Norton galleries and several of his famous black and white Screen TestsŽ of Ms. Holzer run larger than life. Once he said, Dont blink for three minutes, which is hard,Ž she said, ges-turing at a screen. But To Jane, Love AndyŽ is as much about its times as it is an artist and his muse. Step through the gallery to see outfits Ms. Holzer wore during the glory days of the mid-60s and marvel at how tiny they are „ the Norton had to cut down its mannequins in order to get the dresses by Paco Rabanne, the lacy uni-tard ensemble by Emanuel Ungaro and the elegant Yves Saint Laurent frocks to fit on them for display in the exhibition. It was the age of Twiggy, after all.For the exhibition, curator Cheryl Brutvan paired vintage ensembles with photos of Ms. Holzer wearing the out-fits, and included photographs and cov-ers that were shot for Vogue and other magazines of the day. The exhibition also has a camera at which visitors can create their own Screen Test,Ž and areas in which they can view some of Warhols films. Many of Warhols famous portraits are here, including some from his Jac-queline Kennedy series. Elsewhere, there are the flower paintings Warhol was creating at the time he met Ms. Holzer, who went on after her Warhol heyday to have a model-ing career, open a Worth Avenue ice cream parlor called Sweet Baby Janes and raise a family. She also produced movies, including Kiss of the Spider Woman.Ž Ms. Holzer, who remembers riding in a car with the Rolling Stones as they composed Satisfaction,Ž was friends with Warhol until his death in 1987. She pointed to a photo of Warhol with works lining his foil-covered workspace, called The Factory.Ž It was amazing to see paintings piled up like that. And of course, that was when he did flowers. They were so beautiful,Ž she said. Also beautiful is the Nortons exhibition David Webb: Societys Jeweler,Ž open through April 13. Webb attracted the attention of such society women as the Duchess of Wind-sor, who called him Faberg reborn,Ž heiress Doris Duke and movie star Eliz-abeth Taylor. First Lady Jacqueline Ken-nedy dubbed him a modern-day Cel-lini,Ž and as a result, he created official gifts of state for the White House. The show is housed in a jewel box of a gallery that is papered in a glossy green reminiscent of malachite. The show was curated by Donald Albrecht, who helped curate last years Doris Dukes Shangri-LaŽ at the Norton. Webb captured a post-World War II Zeitgeist in the United States,Ž said the Nortons deputy director, James Brayton Hall, who led a tour of the exhibition. Webb, born in 1925, embraced the forward-looking optimism of the day and turned out fanciful baubles. Mrs. Kennedys earrings, on display here, are understated green enamel hoops dotted with diamonds. Drawings for a necklace designed for Taylor are marked Mrs. R. BurtonŽ „ she was married to Richard Burton at the time. But other objects are pure fantasy.Obviously as you look around you will see work inspired by historical styles, youll see work inspired by other jewelers, in fact, but Webb reinterpreted these things in a way that had never been seen before,Ž Mr. Hall said. Fantasy objects of lapis lazuli, coral and other precious and semi-precious stones show a dazzling use of precious materials that rivals the work of great Carl Faberg. But with a wink. A smiling coral seahorse has emerald eyes lined with gold and a mane of diamonds, gold and platinum. A 1960s elephant brooch boasts a face made of pearl accentuated with emerald eyes. They are objects of their time.Or are they? Webb died in 1975 at the age of 50, but his company still produces his designs. And so the bedazzling continues.
