The aftermath of the housing collapse is still with us. Eight of the countrys top 10 metro areas for foreclosure activ-ity are in Florida. The states rate of foreclosures is the highest in the nation according to the year-end report by RealtyTrac. In Palm Beach County, records show there were 10,000 fewer foreclosures this year than last but it is hardly good news. There are still nearly 40,000 fore-closures pending in the county and, as of last October, nearly 400,000 more cases on the horizon statewide. With this much turmoil, there is no consensus the housing market has stabilized. There are signs of improvement. Those who owe more on their mortgage than their house is worth are seeing prices rebound. Access to credit is better. The housing supply is tightening. Buyers and sellers are radiating greater confi-dence: the worst is over „ maybe. The euphemism, not yet being out of the woods,Ž is the private sectors descrip-tion of the uncertainties that still imperil the market. Depending on whose woods they are talking about, its a mischarac-terization of the dangers yet unfolding. Take for instance, low and moderateincome families struggling to recov-er lost economic ground, a rebound not easily achieved given anemic job growth, growing income inequality, and the erosion of purchasing power. Yet even for them, owning a home is still the pinnacle of their American Dream; and the economics of buying versus renting a home is on their side. So says a report written by Jeff Kolka, a chief economist and housing expert. Assuming sufficient income, these fami-lies just need to live in what they buy for seven years to make the math work. Sounds simple, but the competition is stiff for affordable housing on the mar-ket. Cash purchases account for more than half of all homes purchased in Palm Beach County; and the bundlers are back, buying up large numbers of homes as investment properties des-tined to become rentals until profits entice a frenzy of flipping. Speculative buying is so acute that a federal effort is underway to squeeze a quick buy-up of foreclosed properties to encourage owner-occupied deals. It is a drop in the bucket, though, given the sheer number of foreclosures; and the challenges of home purchase faced by those of mod-est means. Kolka cites lack of job stability; inadequate savings for a down payment; poor credit histories; rising mortgage rates; and rising prices as major barriers. Thus buying a home is an opportunity grown remote in the circumstance of being economically disadvantaged. An affordable rental may be the best alternative but rentals are in short sup-ply and expensive, too. So renters are not out of the woods either. Thousands of families are already cost burdenedŽ meaning they spend more than 30 per-cent of their annual income on rent payments. As that percentage creeps up, it means the money runs out before the end of the month to pay bills, buy groceries, fill gas tanks or pay for any-thing until the next check arrives. Thus, no matter which way the housing wind blows, it remains tough for low and middle-income families to find and buy or rent affordable housing here and in many other places in Florida. What then, is happening to the million-plus Floridians expected to be ultimately displaced in the next three years by foreclosure activity? The answer is not hard to find. Job loss and low pay beget foreclosures; foreclosures beget homelessness; home-lessness begets food insecurity; food insecurity begets despair; despair begets human misery; human misery begets the collapse of neighborhoods and com-munities. Foreclosures on the scale of magnitude occurring within the county and the state overall put families on the edge of a high-risk precipice where the economic consequence of a misstep or further misfortune leads to a ferocious, downward spiral. Earlier this month, a headline trumpeted the number of homeless, school-age students in Palm Beach County is rising, up to 3,000 the last school year, a figure nearly doubling since the school year count of 2011-2012. From 2007 forward, Florida had the third highest increase in the rate of homeless-ness in the nation. This upward trajec-tory spiked during the same time when homelessness was declining almost everywhere else in the nation, accord-ing to Floridas annual homeless assess-ment report. The state continues to head in the wrong direction: 7,000 more Floridians experienced homelessness in 2012 than did in 2007. Florida has the third high-est rate of homelessness in the nation. That is a very long way from being out of the woods and beyond economic risk. I would say it is more like being lost in a deep, dark forest with a big, bad wolf on your trail, and having little hope of escape.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEB. 27-MARCH 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONThe UAW’s worker problemThe activist Florence Reece wrote the union ballad Which Side Are You On?Ž in the midst of Kentuckys so-called Harlan County War in the 1930s. Posed this question by the United Auto Workers, employees of Volkswa-gens Chattanooga, Tenn., plant answered that they dont want to be on the side of a union that is slipping into irrelevance. Once a 1.5 million-member behemoth, the UAW has seen its membership decline to a fourth of what it was in the late 1970s. Everything had lined up for it in Chattanooga. Not only was VW officially neutral, it tilted the play-ing field in favor of the union. The company allowed it to campaign in the plant „ a major advantage „ while opponents were excluded. The media was praising Volkswa-gens enlightened European attitude toward organized labor and celebrat-ing imminent victory for the union. Then the workers had their say. The UAW reportedly spent $5 million in the course of a campaign that lasted two years, and lost by a 712 to 636 vote. The motto of the old American Federation of Labor was a fair days wage for a fair days work.Ž VW workers felt they already had it. Wages in Chatta-nooga are comparable to those of new hires of the Detroit automakers, roughly $20 an hour. The unionization of the workforce would make it possible for VW to form a European-style works councilŽ of man-agement and workers to make decisions about the plant. But workers already felt amply consulted by management. Even UAW Secretary-Treasurer Dennis Wil-liams attested, Volkswagens a class act.Ž This is hardly the Battle of the Overpass,Ž when company thugs beat UAW officials trying to organize Ford in the 1930s. This is a car company putting out a welcome mat for union organizers who still couldnt manage to organize. Florence Reece wrote, Come all of you good workers/Good news to you Ill tell/Of how the good old union/Has come in here to dwell.Ž But the workers in Chattanooga didnt consider it such good news. Bob King, the head of the UAW, thinks they are guilty of false consciousness. If only they werent so viciously misled by outside agitators, such as Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the former mayor of Chattanooga who helped to woo VW to the city in the first place. He rightly said that the UAW is in a death spiral.Ž Kings union was found alone in a room in 2009 with two almost dead car companies. After the UAW did so much to chase automaking out of Detroit with unsustainable labor costs and ridiculous work rules, it is no wonder that workforces havent welcomed it into the South, where right-to-work states have become alluring destinations for foreign car companies. For the longest time, the business model of the UAW has been to take its members dues and funnel them to friendly Democratic politicians. Unless it breaks into the South, the union knows its all but doomed. It may feel this institutional impera-tive keenly, but workers in good manufacturing jobs who owe nothing to this self-serving dinosaur from the 20th century dont. They can be forgiven for wondering which side the union is on. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly f t n h $ w rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The Comcast-Time Warner merger threatens democracyComcast has announced it intends to merge with Time Warner Cable, joining together the largest and second-largest cable and broadband providers in the country. The merger must be approved by both the Justice Department and the FCC. Given the financial and politi-cal power of Comcast, and the Obama administrations miserable record of protecting the public interest, the time to speak out and organize is now. This is just such a far-reaching deal, it should be dead on arrival when it gets to the Department of Justice and the Fed-eral Communications Commission for approval,Ž Michael Copps told me days after the merger announcement. Copps was a commissioner on the FCC from 2001 to 2011, one of the longest-serving commissioners in the agencys history. Now he leads the Media and Democracy Reform Initiative at Common Cause. This is the whole shooting match,Ž he said. Its broadband. Its broadcast. Its content. Its distribution. Its the medium and the message. Its telecom, and its media, too.Ž Back in 2011, when Com-cast sought regulatory approval of its proposed acquisition of NBC Universal (NBCU), Copps was the sole noŽ vote out of the five FCC commissioners. Copps is not the only former FCC commissioner with an opinion on the merger. Meredith Attwell Baker served briefly there, from 2009 to 2011. Presi-dent Barack Obama appointed Baker, a Republican, to maintain the traditional party balance on the FCC. Baker was a big supporter of the Comcast-NBCU merger. It surprised many, however, when she abruptly resigned her FCC commission seat to go work for „ you guessed it „ Comcast. She was named senior vice president for governmental affairs for NBCU, just four months after voting to approve the merger. As for the regulators, the news website Republic Report revealed that the head of the Justice Departments Anti-trust Division, William Baer, was a law-yer representing NBC during the merger with Comcast, and Maureen Ohlhausen, a commissioner on the Federal Trade Commission, provided legal counsel for Comcast before joining the commission. If you wonder how President Obama feels about the issue, look at who he appointed to be the new chairperson of the FCC: Tom Wheeler, who was for years a top lobbyist for both the cable and wireless industries. A leading organization on media policy in the U.S., Free Press, issued a statement following the announcement of the proposed merger. Craig Aaron, the groups president, said: No one woke up this morning wishing their cable company was bigger or had more control over what they could watch or download. But that „ along with higher bills „ is the reality theyll face tomor-row unless the Department of Justice and the FCC do their jobs and block this merger.Ž Free Press hopes millions will reach out to the FCC and the Justice Department to voice disapproval of the Comcast/Time Warner merger.In Congress, one of the most vocal opponents is someone who actually knows a bit about the TV industry, Min-nesota Sen. Al Franken. Franken rose to national prominence as a comedian and writer on the early years of NBCs Sat-urday Night Live.Ž He clearly doesnt find the prospect of a larger Comcast very funny. Cable rates have risen signifi-cantly over the last two decades, and my constituents express frustration at being squeezed by unacceptably high cable bills every month. Many consumers would switch cable providers if only they had a viable option to do so,Ž he wrote in a letter to the FCC, Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.Coincident with the attempted merger is a renewed fight over net neutral-ity, the basic rules governing how the Internet operates, especially whether Internet service providers such as Com-cast, Time Warner, AT&T and Verizon should be able to favor some websites over others. Should there be rules that allow people equal access to the website of a small human-rights organization in Russia or a group of Occupy activists in New York, as, say, the websites of Wal-Mart or the National Rifle Association? A growing fear among Internet activ-ists is that the U.S. regulatory system, beholden to lobbyists and corporate donors, will forfeit net neutrality, cre-ating what Michael Copps calls the cable-ization of the Internet.Ž The public has confronted monstrous mergers before, and blocked them. So, too, have they faced corporate attempts to stifle the fundamental freedom of the Internet. Freedom of speech, freedom to connect and communicate, is the lifeblood of a democracy. The fight to preserve and expand the diversity and vibrancy of our media system is one that cannot be left to bought-out regulators and corporate lobbyists.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickDoes your shelter have a kitten nursery? Its one of the trends in the shelter communitys efforts to save more animals, especially those who typically arent considered adoptable. Kittens? Unadoptable? Youd be surprised. Young kittens are among the most at-risk ani-mals in shelters. Kittens who are old enough to be adopted usually fly out of shelters, but those younger than 8 weeks have special needs. Newborn kittens must be bottle-fed every two hours and are highly vulnerable to disease. They also require socialization at an early age. Thats more intensive care than many shelters have been able or willing to give. But some progressive shelters are responding to the challenge with kitten nurseries that save tiny feline lives until theyre ready for adoption. At the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA, the program has nurtured almost 5,500 kittens since 2009. The kitten nursery was born after a 2008 study found that 71 percent of treatable animals euthanized throughout San Diego County were cats and kittens. Of those, 38 percent were kittens younger than 8 weeks. We opened the kitten nursery in 2009 to save our communitys most at-risk animal,Ž says SDHS nursery supervisor Jenny Bonomi-ni. The program operates in conjunction with other nonprofit and government agencies in the San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition. With a 250-kitten capacity, the nursery has three designated areas separated by age: neonatal (newborns to 2 weeks); transitional (2 to 4 weeks) and socialization (5 to 8 weeks). The kittens receive round-the-clock care from 24 staff members and 20 volunteers. These tiny kittens are very vulnerable and their health can change hour by hour,Ž Bono-mini says. The medical team makes several rounds to the kitten nursery every day so we can constantly monitor these young kittens and provide any care that they may need. We also have many protocols in place to ensure that diseases dont spread.Ž Kitten nurseries may operate only part of the year or almost year-round, depending on where the shelter is located. In temper-ate climates such as Florida, kitten seasonŽ runs from March through November. In other areas, it typically runs from April through October. We get litters of stray kittens, owner-relinquished kittens and kittens transferred from other shelters who dont have the resources and infrastructure to care for them,Ž Bono-mini says. Successful programs have enough staff to care for kittens round-the-clock in a warm and safe environment with good disease-management protocols. Other shelters with kitten nurseries include No-Kill Los Ange-les (NKLA), Austin Pets Alive in Austin, Texas, and a coalition of First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Jacksonville Humane Society and Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services in Jacksonville. The nurseries not only save lives and provide cat lovers with well-socialized pets, they also attract positive media attention and volunteers. A foster program increases the shelters capacity to care for kittens. When kittens can be placed in a foster home with trained volun-teers, it frees up space in the nursery for addi-tional kittens. At SDHS, volunteers learn how to feed and care for the kittens and receive all the supplies, equipment and support theyll need, including food, bowls, bedding, toys, litter, and any necessary medication and vet-erinary services. The nursery allows shelter staff to meet vital physiological and behavioral needs of kittens during a critical time in their develop-ment. Kitten brains have the greatest capacity for learning and memory between the ages of 4 weeks and 14 weeks, so the attention and handling they receive during their stay in the nursery helps them to become more sociable and self-assured. Once they reach 8 weeks and weigh 2 pounds, the kittens are spayed or neutered and made available for adoption.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYGeorge Carr of a local chamber of commerce worked on the deal and, according to a Palm Beach Post story found in the archives of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, the deal seemed to hinge on the following: He worked on hotel rates for the team and equipment rates,Ž the paper reported Nov. 4, 1927. In 1928, the Browns became the first big-league baseball team to train in Palm Beach County, playing in what was originally known as Municipal Ath-letic Field but re-named Wright Field in 1927 and still late r, in 1952, dubbed Connie Mack Field. The Browns stayed through 1936 but set in a motion a tradition that has been broken only by a 10-year stretch after the Browns left and until 1946, the year after World War II ended. Some folks may be wondering who the heck were the St. Louis Browns? They were an original American League franchise, dating back to the leagues 1901 inception and eventually moved away from St. Louis and became the Baltimore Orioles in 1954. But getting back to our story.ƒThe Browns have been followed by the Philadelphia/Kansas City As, Mil-waukee/Atlanta Braves, Montreal Expos and now the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins. Palm Beach County may hold some sort of record as a spring training city with the most number of franchises who eventually moved to another city or changed its geographic name. That list includes the Browns, As, Braves and Expos, who moved to Washington and became the Nationals. Then, of course, the Miami Marlins used to be known as the Florida Marlins. In the beginning, though, it was the Browns, a team that merely by looking at names on its roster evokes a long-gone era. Its best player may have been outfielder Heinie Manush, who hit .378 in 1928 and later was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The 1928 Browns had a first baseman with the lyrical name of Lu Blue. Back-up players that year included an outfielder named Beauty McGowan and an infielder named Ski Melillo. The pitching staff included General Crowder, who was 21-5, a record that clearly indicated he was much more than a private when it came to pitching. Also on the pitching staff was a guy with the unfortunate name, at least for a pitcher, of Boom-Boom Beck, a nick-name he picked up several years later. In 1928, he was still known as Walter. Palm Beach County fans didnt see good St. Louis teams in those years. The Browns never finished as high as second let alone first in their Palm Beach County years. The 1928 season was the only time when the Browns trained in West Palm that they posted a winning record. They may have been bad on the field but they featured some of the most entertaining names in baseball history. Outfielders of that era included grown men named Debs Garms, Showboat Fisher and Nap Kloza. They had a catcher named Muddy Ruel. St. Louis pitchers in that era included Bump Hadley, Bobo Newsome, Ivy Andrews, Fay Thomas and Snipe Han-sen. Those were some dreary years for the Browns, but on the plus side they had a player named Sunny Jim Bottom-ley, who was one of the best hitters of the era. Instead of the sad sack Browns, West Palm was in the running in the 1920s to lure what would become the sports most storied franchise. In 1920 local officials were trying to convince the New York Yankees to move their spring home from Jacksonville. A 1920 headline in the Post reported that the team, referred to then as the Americans, might call West Palm its home for the next five years. The deal never came about. The Yankees went instead in 1921 to Shreveport, La., of all places. But only for one year and then went south to New Orleans for three years before settling in St. Petersburg in 1925. The second team to call West Palm Beach home was the Philadelphia As, who moved into Wright Field in 1946 and stayed through 1962, by which time the franchise was based in Kansas City. Still later, it moved to Oakland, where it remains. In 1946, the As were managed by 83-year-old Connie Mack, who had a grandson of the same name who became a United States senator from Florida. When his grandson won election to the Senate, he did something the As rarely did when they trained in West Palm Beach. He won. The As never finished higher than fourth in the American League during their West Palm years. A pennant? You would have had a better chance of get-ting a Philly cheesesteak for lunch at a vegetarians house than they had of winning a pennant. They had five sea-sons with 100 or more losses between 1946 and 1962. They placed seventh or eighth nine times in those years. By 1961 and 1962, they broke that pattern. The Ameri-can League expanded from eight to 10 teams in 1961 and in the teams final two springs here they went on to finish ninth both times. Despite the bad luck of having bad teams train here, West Palm Beach didnt give up on spring training. In 1963, the As moved to Bradenton and the then-Milwaukee Braves moved from Bradenton to West Palm and into Municipal Stadium, which was built in 1962. The Braves stayed through 1997, a stretch that included the teams move to Atlanta, roughly the second half of Hank Aarons career and a stretch where they finished fifth or sixth in their division 13 times between 1973 and 1990. Palm Beach County fans, though, got to see outstanding Atlanta teams in the 1990s. The Braves won four National League pennants in the decade and the 1995 World Series before leaving in 1998 for a spiffy new complex at Disney World. The Braves were joined in 1969 at Municipal Stadium by the expansion Montreal Expos, who stayed through 1972, then bolted to Daytona in 1973 but returned to West Palm in 1980 and stayed until 1997. They moved up the road to Jupiter and $28 million Roger Dean Stadium in 1998. Roger Dean Stadium, like Municipal Stadium before it, is the site of two big-league teams. The facility also has 12 practice fields. The St. Louis Cardinals moved there in 1998 and have been sharing it with the Marlins since 2003. Its the only Florida stadium that is the spring home for two teams. The Cardinals and Marlins have fared much better than West Palm Beachs early spring tenants, the Browns and As. The Marlins won the 2003 World Series and the Cardinals have been in four World Series since 2004, winning it all in 2006 and 2013. Whats next?What history is still to be written?County officials are trying to lure the Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros to a new complex. That would be welcoming news for the four teams training on Floridas east coast. Once there were seven teams on the coast. Now, the only other east coast teams are the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie and the Nation-als in Viera. The Nationals, who used to be the Expos and who used to train in West Palm, have been flirting with other communities and may leave their Bre-vard County home. If that happens, only three teams would remain on the east coast. That could signal an end to the local spring training tradition because teams like to be fairly close to other teams. That facilitates travel and cuts down on HERITAGEFrom page 1 Connie Mack talks catching with a youngster.COURTESY PHOTOSAerial (West) Wright Field.

Thats time that could be bet-ter spent on what is called in baseball lingo, PFP, or pitchers fielding prac-tice. From our standpoint, we just need teams to play,Ž said Mike Bauer, general manager of Roger Dean Stadium. If the Nationals leave, it could open a door for the Marlins to follow. Although they have a contract to keep them in the county through 2027 there is an option that would allow them to leave after 2017 spring training if fewer than four teams remain on this coast. Thats always a concern,Ž said Jeff Castner, general manager of the Jupiter Beach Resort. We hear the rumblings.Ž Mr. Castner is well aware if that one more team leaves the east coast the great history of local spring training could end. Thats scary,Ž Mr. Castner said.The ideal situation for Mr. Castner would be adding two more teams to the local mix. But he also knows what is the minimum that must be done. We got to keep the teams we have,Ž Mr. Castner said. Mr. Bauer expects news about the future of teams such as the Blue Jays, Astros and Nationals is not far off. Youre going to see some movement in the near future,Ž Mr. Bauer said. By who and to where, though, is not yet known. Were hopeful other teams will come into our area,Ž Mr. Bauer said. Getting back to 1928, back before baseball became a big business, it was still a business. Make no mistake about it. This was the headline on a Feb. 27, 1928 Post editorial: Baseball Is A Big Business.Ž The editorial noted that in 1927 hundreds of thousands paid on average $1 to see Yankee games. An entire dollar!Rousing the community, the editorial included this to convince folks to get the St. Louis Browns: It is probably that more will be paid back to the mer-chants of the city than is taken out of the pockets of the sports loving public by the big league team.Ž Thats still the premise, 88 years later.

Now, on March 5 at 7 p.m., the Jewish community will have the opportunity to hear it from Eva Schloss, stepsister of Anne Frank, the young girl whose war-time diary brought life to the atroci-ties suffered by Jews during the Holocaust in World War II. The event will take place at the New Chabad of Palm Beach Gardens, 7025 Fairview Lane, Palm Beach Gardens (the southwest corner of the PGA Boulevard, and the turnpike in the LA Fitness Plaza). As a child, Ms. Schloss witnessed the horrors perpetrated by the Nazis. The pairs association stems from the marriage of Annes father, Otto, to Ms. Schloss mother, Fritzi, in 1953. We were not best friends but we were playmates,Ž Ms. Schloss notes in a prepared statement. I was sporty while Anne was interested in books and movies and stories which I some-times listened to.Ž Like her stepsister, Eva Schloss went into hiding during World War II but was captured. She was sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, but survived and eventually made her way to England, where she married Zvi Schloss. She will now tell her story and bring it to life for her audience at the New Chabad. Rabbi at the New Chabad is Dovid Vogler, who introduces himself as an African-American rabbi, blending together the African culture in which he was raised with the esoteric Chas-sidic pulse of his passion, he said in a prepared statement. Inspired by the survival instincts of the wild, Rabbi Vigler is most com-fortable teaching down-to-earth and easy-to-understand explanations of deep mystical concepts taught in the Kabbalah and Chassidic works. Driven by the Rebbes message to reach out to every single last Jew, he founded Schmooze Radio in 2009, South Floridas only Torah Radio Show, he said in the prepared state-ment. Rabbi Dovid Vigler received his Rabbinical Ordination in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. Together with his wife, Chana, they founded the Chabad of Palm Beach Gardens in 2006. Q Schloss

Jill was usually quite thoughtful and this was her busy season at work. However, Shelly could never let things like this go, nor could she keep her mouth shut. She called Jill and indignantly demanded to know why Jill hadnt reached out to thank her. Shelly said hateful, hurtful things, accusing Jill of being selfish and self-centered. Jill hung up the phone, but not before coldly telling her mother shed better get help, or they wouldnt be able to have a relationship anymore. And, if that wasnt bad enough, Shelly next called her friends to complain about the injustices shed endured. Shelly knew, in her heart, she had to stay in better control, but that was easier said than done. When she became overwhelmed she didnt know how to contain her emotions.There are always times when our emotions get the best of us. And, sadly, when were besieged, its not always possible to contain our upsets in the most becoming, admirable manner. However, most of us have learned spe-cific skills, over time, to regulate and channel our most volatile feelings. In doing so, weve been able to maintain our dignity and conduct ourselves in socially acceptable ways. Most of the time: even if we are feeling hurt, frightened or angry, we have learned to hold inappropriate, extreme or excessive behavior in check. Family history, genetic make-up and life experiences contribute to a per-son's emotional stability and ability to face life's downturns. Most of us have learned some valuable skills through-out their lives that may help us settle upset emotions on our own. However, in times of stress, many of us have dif-ficulty identifying and accessing these inner strengths. The human body has a built in alarm center in the brain that is activated when a person is stressed or in dan-ger. The heart speeds up, breath-ing accelerates and there is an addi-tional burst of energy. This fight or flight response helps us cope with danger or run to safety. For many people, learning how to calmly settle their emotions will require pro-fessional assis-tance, but for others, there are steps that can be taken to learn practi-cal strategies on their own. Most specialists concur that the most effective treat-ment combines physiological, cognitive and behavioral inter-ventions. Muscle and breathing relax-ation techniques are often prescribed. In some instances, certain anti-anxiety or mood regulation medications may be prescribed to offer relief. Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a highly effective treatment method that has been designed to offer multi-fac-eted strategies to help highly anxious individuals regulate their moods. This treatment modality combines cogni-tive therapy, and learning mindfulness skills, interpersonal skills and emotion-al regulation skills. There is a very practical workbook by Drs. Alexander Chapman, Kim Gratz and Matthew Tull, called The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for AnxietyŽ that not only describes this method in great detail, but also provides step-by-step instructions to guide the reader in adapting new behaviors. Learning new skills to minimize anxiety may open our capacity to more logically address frustrations and hurts. Instead of trying to ignore, or minimize the upset situation, it can be enor-mously helpful at these times to show ourselves empathy and compassion, in the same way we would supportively reach out to our friends going through a similar situation. It is important to remember that personal failure, self-doubt and suffering is part of the universal human experience. And, in fact, reminding ourselves that we may have gone through a different hardship previously, and survived, is key. It is sometimes easier when we try to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and consider what we would do to be supportive to them. If we could even role-play what we would say to this per-son, we might gain insight into steps we can take to soothe ourselves. The goal here is to take a pause between the stimulus (perceived threat) and our actions, so we gain the ability to problem solve before acting out or blurting something inappropriately. In other words, we can learn to acknowl-edge our feelings, recognize that we are indeed entitled to be upset, but that we must take measured steps to be self-protective, before acting in ways that undermine our integrity and personal relationships.

She didnt win an Academy Award for her work, but Ms. Fazio is a winner of the 88.1 WAY-FM Dare to Be Contest. Women around South Florida were nominated for the contest through sub-missions of their inspirational faith-based stories on the Dare to Be Web site. The five winning stories were cho-sen by the Dare to Be Team, which includes Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill. As a winner, Ms. Fazio was honored in front of her peers at Place of Hope and was presented tickets to the Feb. 20 Dare to Be event in Coral Springs. Fazio has served as Director of Clinical Services at Place of Hope, the coun-tys largest foster care organization for more than eight years. Prior to becom-ing an employee, she was a volunteer. In addition to the work she does for area foster children, she was recognized for her personal commitment and dedica-tion to her son, Rob, who became part of her family at the age of 18. Rob began his relationship with the Fazio family as a mentee and visitor. Not long afterward, Ms. Fazios children began to regard Rob as a big brother and wanted to include him permanently in their family. Ms. Fazio and her husband also wanted to adopt Rob, but had no physical space to accommodate him in their home. Once her church family and personal friends learned of the familys wishes, a collective effort ensued to convert the Fazio garage into a bedroom and private living space for Rob. Build-ers, tradesmen and other professionals lent their talents, while friends and sup-porters donated funds and supplies. Rob has now been a part of the Fazio family for three years. Through her work with our team, Gina has been instrumental in help-ing children and young people through some very difficult and traumatic tran-sitions,Ž said Charles Bender, executive director of Place of Hope, in a prepared statement. She understands the sacri-fice and care necessary to make a house a home. So, its no surprise that she opened her home to another person and made her family his family. It takes a special and loving person to do that and to inspire a whole community of people to want to help.Ž With campuses in Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Place of Hope is a faith-based, state-licensed child welfare organization that provides family-style foster care (emer-gency and long-term); family outreach and intervention; maternity care; safety for domestic minor sexually trafficked victims; transitional housing and sup-port services; adoption and foster care recruitment and support; hope and healing opportunities for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect.

The upper face is most commonly treated to eliminate creases between the eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles across the forehead and fine lines in the “crows feet” area extending from the outer corners of the eyes. Ten million people have received Botox in this time and studies have demonstrated high levels of safety and patient satisfaction. Dysport and Xeomin are similar products that have been added to the market more recently. Botox is carefully injected into specific muscles of the face to block the nerves that cause them to contract. By reducing muscle contraction and tone, the overlying skin is smoothened creating a rejuvenated look. A skin numbing cream and ice are used to reduce discomfort. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and results in minimal down time. The wrinkles are gone in 3-7 days and the results will last 3-4 months. Some patients are fearful of using a toxin for cosmetic purposes. Botulism poisoning would require much higher doses than what we use in the face and other minor side effects are very rare if your physician has sufficient experience with Botox. Overall, any of the above mentioned products offer a pain-free, quick and safe procedure to give you a wrinkle free, relaxed and youthful appearance. To see if Botox is right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation. Michael Lipan, M.D., Facial Plastic SurgeonGardens Cosmetic Center How safe is Botox?

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

Conestoga Auction Co. in Pennsylv ania sold a goat cart in 2013 for $236. Was it a toy? A farm tool? Ani-mal power was important in past years. Of course, there were horse-drawn plows and wagons. But there were also dogand sheep-powered treadmills used to help churn b utter. Donkeys, mules „ and, in other countries, elephants and camels „ furnished power for farm work and transportation. But goat carts have been popular not only for pulling wagons of farm products, but also as entertainment for children. From the late 19th century into the 1930s, traveling photographers took goat cart pictures. A child sat in the cart and the photographer took the cute picture and printed a photograph or a postcard. Dozens of these vintage goat cart pictures, most from Midwestern towns, can be found on the Inter-net. Iron and tin toys made from about 1890 to 1940 are replicas of children or men in goat carts. This old idea may be com-ing back. There is now a dog-powered wheelchair for injured veterans. Q: My dresser belonged to my mother. She gave it to me many years ago. One drawer is marked Kroehler, worlds larg-est furniture manufacturer, Permanized furniture.Ž I would like to sell it, but I dont know how to go about it and how much to ask for it. A: Peter E. Kroehler started out as a clerk at the Naperville Lounge Co. in 1893 and bought the company in 1903. He founded P.E. Kroehler Manufacturing Co. in Kankakee, Ill., in 1911. He merged the two companies with two other furniture manufacturers in 1915 to form Kroehler Manufacturing Co. The PermanizedŽ finish was advertised as moisture-proof. The company was sold in 1981. A new Kroehler double dresser and mirror sold for about $175 in 1957. Value today, if its in great condition, is about $200. Q: I have a vase that my mother owned for many years. The top edge is gilt and scalloped and the vase has two handles. The mark on the bottom is UsonaŽ over a standing dragon with GoodwinŽ underneath it. Unfortunately, one of the handles broke off so Im sure it isnt worth much, but Id like to know who made it and how old it is. A: The dragon mark was used from about 1906 to 1913 by Goodwin Pottery Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio. The compa-ny was in business from 1893 to 1913. You are right „ the missing handle destroys the value. Q: I have a battery-operated rollerskating monkey called Clancy that was one of my favorite childhood toys. Its hard plastic and is about 22 inches tall. Batteries fit into one of his shoes. His head moves from side to side and he moves forward when you put a coin in his hand or into his hat, which can be attached to his hand. What is Clancy worth today? A: Clancy the Great, a roller-skating monkey, was made by Ideal Toy Co. in 1963. It was designed by Marvin Glass & Associates, a toy design company in Chicago. The toy came with two metal coins.Ž If its in good working condition and you have the original box, the toy sells for about $100 today. Q: My mother bought me an Elvis Presley overnight case in 1956. The copy-right date of 1956 is on the bottom. The case has pictures of Elvis and his auto-graph on the cover and sides, blue trim and a blue handle. She paid $7 for it at W.E. Walker 5 & 10 cent store, where she worked. Can you tell me the value of it now? A: Elvis Presleys first records were produced by Sun Studio in Memphis, Tenn., in 1954. His rock-and-roll style and suggestive moves made him a popular but controversial fig-ure back then. In 1956 he began recording for RCA and appeared in his first movie. Although he died in 1977, he remains one of the most popular recording stars of all time, with more than a billion records sold. The over-night case was made with blue or brown trim and handles. They have sold at auction for $200 to more than $400. Q: I have an 11-inch frosted glass wine bottle with a music box built into the bottles recessed bottom. The bottle is marked BolsŽ around the bottom, but the wooden bottom of the music box is marked Bottle made in France, Musical unit made in Switzerland.Ž When the bottle is picked up, the music box plays. Theres a little pin on the bottom that winds the music box and stops the music when the bottle is set down. What is the history and value of this bottle? A: The Lucas Bols company, based in Amsterdam, is the oldest distillery in the world. It traces its history back to 1575. But its glass music-box bottles, including examples with a dancing ballerina inside, date from the middle of the 20th century. They usually sell for $20 to $50. Tip: To clean an old teddy bear, cover it with cheesecloth and vacuum it on the low setting. Use a small amount of foam carpet cleaner or foam from Woolite and water. Rinse. Let it dry out of sunlight. Vacuum again. Do not soak the bear in water. The stuffing will be ruined. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The goat wagon has iron-banded wooden wheels. It is 21 inches wide and 40 inches long. The cart sold for $236 at Conestoga Auction Co. in Manheim, Pa.


BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 A25 South Florida native Patty Bartoli knows exactly what she envisions for the new Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf miniature golf facility she opened in Jupiter. One of the first weeks that we were open, I looked out, and looked up and it was a moment Ill never forget,Ž she says. I saw a group of 4and 5-year-olds playing with their parents; next to them a group of seniors; and within line vision, there was a group of people in their 20s playing and having a beer. Everyone was laughing and having a nice time. There were no cell phones out.Ž Ms. Bartolis business strategy has family fun at its core, and the mother to Matthew, 2, Emma, 3, and Juliana, 5, says the concept came to her one day while thinking about something that could really do well in the area. They (the kids) were a big factor in thinking about different businesses and what families would really enjoy doing,Ž she says. They were a very big proponent. Theyre also the biggest critic.Ž Ms. Bartoli isnt just targeting children and families, though. She hopes to attract the full gamut: children, adults, singles, couples, seniors, school groups, corporations, nonprofits and more. Ms. Bartoli says her mass-market approach, which includes appealing to anyone whos cel-ebrating anything,Ž is both a weakness and an opportunity. I wish I had 500 of me to get it to everything I want to get it to, were working to get there,Ž said Ms. Bartoli, who maintains a staff of about 10 employees. Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf opened in late December and is already well on its way. Chalk it up to Ms. Bartolis innovativeness in thinking up a fun activity with a broad appeal, or attribute her success thus far to her business background: Ms. Bartoli grad-uated from Boston College in 1999 with a degree in Pre-Med Biology. From there, she moved straight to New York City and began a career with Bloomberg. It was there that she gained experience in events, marketing and sales. I learned a lot about how to run a business, how to man-age people, how to create a great prod-uct, and how to sell something that people want. All of that came together and helped me create something thats in demand,Ž she says of the min-iature golf complex. When she decided to have children, Ms. Bartoli moved from the city and opened two Gymboree Play & Music locations, where her target was a more defined demographic of families with young children. It gave her good expe-rience, she said. She moved to South Florida in December to open Light-house Cove. Her new business is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and features standing specials for seniors, children 5 and under and members of the military. Sundays are date night,Ž where couples can play at the group rate of $10 per person after 6 p.m. Theres also a happy hour Monday through Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m., when guests can enjoy craft beer and play a round of mini golf for $7. Lighthouse Cove has two 18-hole courses. The theme features sea life „ boats, waterfalls, caves and, of course, a lighthouse. Ms. Bartoli based her decision to serve an always-changing list of craft beers on something else shes big on: community. We think its important to stay local,Ž she says. Just as we are a small business, we want to help promote the small businesses around us ƒ Theres a community style feel within Lighthouse Cove where you have the opportunity to support other local businesses.Ž The ice cream at 3 Scoops within Lighthouse Cove comes from a distrib-utor in Manalapan, and the meat used at The Burger Shack for its premium, custom-blend burgers, comes from a local butcher. It took a lot of taste-testing,Ž jokes Ms. Bartoli. Shes hoping the stand-alone burger shack, which opened in late January, will attract a lunch or sports-watching crowd, with its deliv-ery and takeout options and flat-screen televisions. Ms. Bartoli uses this same all-in logic when she thinks about competing busi-nesses in the area that are also vying for a piece of the proverbial pie. I think theres a lot to do and people are out and about,Ž she says. Any business in the area offering family fun enter-tainment, were all in this together. Were not worried or threatened by our neighbors. Were hoping to add to the fun, amazing area that Jupiter is. Our business would not work if we lived on an island with just adventure golf.Ž Q „ Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf, 3 Scoops, and The Burger Shack.

A28 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY dreams that the theater would be as lovely as it is. I think this expansion they did this year „ and not just because my name is on it „ is just amazing,Ž she said. Its a million-and-a-half-dollar gift that continues to give,Ž said Andrew Kato, the Maltzs producing artistic director. Said Ms. Green, What I think is wonderful is that Andrew is a genius at try-ing to figure out what the public likes. What to me is kind of sad is the public says, oh, we want something different. Well, when you bring in something different, they complain because they dont recognize it. How do you make people happy?Ž That level of thinking is what sets her apart from others. I think shes very savvy and smart about the knowledge of what that would give,Ž Mr. Kato said of Ms. Greens gift. Roe doesnt come to our board just as a philanthropist. She also comes to it as a theater lover and someone who goes to the theater a lot.Ž Ms. Greens patronage of theater stretches across the nation. She has underwritten a play reading series at the Cleveland Playhouse, created the Roe Green Distinguished Theatre Artist residency program at University of Colorado Boulder and underwrote a New Play Workshop at New Yorks fabled Chautauqua Institution. She also put money behind Academy,Ž the show Mr. Kato and his collabo-rator, John Mercurio, created through the Maltz that won kudos from as far away as South Korea. That is what she gets excited about „ ideas and bringing new ideas to the forefront,Ž Mr. Kato said. Thats only possible because she has a degree in theater and she has been a stage man-ager. Its a different understanding of our art form. Shes got the smarts of a real theater person, so thats how she approaches specifically theater, art and culture overall.Ž Even after the major construction that The Green Room, named for Ms. Green, and the club level seating entailed, Ms. Green is looking ahead for the theater. Id like to see maybe having a smaller space somewhere to do more experi-mental things, so it wont be just musi-cal. Were getting to be known as just a musical theater,Ž she said. Will she be a part of that?Oh, sure. I love theater. I love the arts. It doesnt matter whether its dance, opera „ any of the arts. Its the imagina-tion,Ž she said. She mused on the future.What Im afraid of is these kids with the computers and not having an imagi-nation and not being able to make up stories and make up dance,Ž she said. That speaks to her character.She travels a lot, so shes very interesting. Shes never short of a good story about what shes passionate about,Ž Mr. Kato said. Shes very strong-willed and strong-minded, as am I, so we enjoy that.ŽBehind the scenesShe learned early on the importance of giving. Ms. Green, 65, was the only child of federal Judge Ben C. Green and Sylvia Chappy Green. She often has said her parents invested their money well, leaving their daughter, who has never married, with a substantial financial legacy. Her parents spent their winters in West Palm Beach. My dad was just an incredible human being. He was very, very caring. He did so much for so many, and he helped in just so many little ways, and it wasnt always money. He was just a super guy,Ž Ms. Green said. He heard that a woman who was going to become a naturalized citizen was in the hospital, so you know he went to the hospital and naturalized her. The things I remember were the little things he did.Ž He died in 1983 and Ms. Green ensured his legacy by naming The Judge Ben C. Green Law Library in his honor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleve-land. Her parents were instrumental in her arts education. Ms. Green remembered her first experience with theater. I was 6 years old and they needed a narrator for The Three Bears. I was in kindergarten, actually, and I was the narrator,Ž she said. The limelight was nice, but she saw other things she liked in the theatrical world. I was a backstage person. I was not really an actress. When I got my mas-ters, it was in communications and the-ater, but it was basically directing, it was in stage-managing. It wasnt in acting.Ž Behind the scenes is where she has made the most impact. In a place where this is a second home for people, to see someone make bold statements as a philanthropist is inspiring,Ž said Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. Ms. Green, who followed her parents to Palm Beach County, sponsors the Cultural Councils Cocktails and Cul-ture interview series and its Splash of Art. I think the Cultural Council helps so many people „ it helps all the arts „ so thats why Im glad I work with it,Ž Ms. Green said. She also underwrote the gift store.Nichole Hickey, the Cultural Councils manager of artist services, noted that Ms. Green was the shops first customer. She was generous to do that room for us, then she was in there first,Ž Ms. Blades said. Thats an example of her behind-thescenes involvement.GREENFrom page 1 ADAM BARON/FLORIDA WEEKLY “I love the arts. It doesn’t matter whether it’s dance, opera — any of the arts.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 NEWS A29 GREENFrom page 28She is unusually and very strongly supportive of the staff people who run these arts organiz ations. And its so lovely when we find someone who wants to understand the work of the management and support staff of an organization,Ž Ms. Blades said. Ms. Green understands that it cant be all work. She also is fun-loving. She wants to have a good time and wants everyone else to have a good time. This work can be hard. We have long hours and were often working on a shoestring, so to be with someone who wants to be a cheer-leader is a great thing,Ž Ms. Blades said. She often will support a gala but will have the professionals join her,Ž Ms. Blades said, citing how Ms. Green brought the managing director of the Cleveland Playhouse to Palm Beach Dramaworks gala last year. Those parties are networking opportunities for arts executives. She gives us opportunities to show up at events without using our own funds,Ž Ms. Blades said. Ms. Beryl, the managing director at Palm Beach Dramaworks, acknowl-edged that was a major source of sup-port, courtesy of Ms. Green, who also readily bids on gala auction lots to help raise money. She has a really big heart and she embraces us with that kind of a safety net, knowing that shes there when you need her and is happy to do it,Ž Ms. Beryl said. She has a very giving heart. She gives of her treasure, and herself. Its not just about writing a check.Ž But Ms. Green has written some substantial checks. A few years ago, her foundation made a $6.5 million gift to cre-ate the Roe Green Center for the School of Theatre and Dance at her alma mater, Kent State Univer-sity. She also is a benefac-tor of a womens shelter. Its a lot.There is no shortage of good causes. There are so many worthy places to give your money and for me the hardest thing is being able to say no,Ž she said. I think you have to be able to pick and choose what youre going to help.Ž The Roe Green Foundation does not accept requests for donations. Please dont call me. Thats not how I operate anymore. I have to pick and choose. Its unfortunate. But thats the way it goes, I suppose,Ž she said. The high arts are still in their infancy in Palm Beach County, compared to Cleveland, where the celebrated play-house is marking its 99th anniversary and the Cleveland Symphony its 96th. Local regional theaters are less than two decades old, as are most dance and musical ensembles. Even the Cultural Council, the umbrella group that over-sees distribution of bed-tax dollars to arts organizations, is only 36 years old. For all her involvement in the Cleveland arts scene, Ms. Green said she did not really know theater namesakes Mil-ton and Tamar Maltz until she moved to Florida full time about a decade ago. The Maltzes are right now my neighbors in Cleveland,Ž she said. A cousin lived in the same Palm Beach Gardens community in which the Maltz-es have a winter home, and suggested they meet with Ms. Green because they were forming the new theater. The rest is history.The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is housed in the former Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre. At the time Ms. Green got involved with the theater, the building was gutted. It opened in 2004 with a version of the Lerner & Loewe musical My Fair Lady.Ž She has served on the theaters board since its inception. I was on the board before the building was ever built. I have four posters that were from the first show, My Fair Lady,Ž Ms. Green said. The show was well received but the theater has continued to grow, espe-cially under Mr. Katos guidance. I think weve come a long way from My Fair Lady. I think Andrew has been just an absolute godsend to the theater,Ž she said. Hes experimenting, hes try-ing to find what fits.Ž The theaters current production, Jon Robin Baitzs Other Desert Cities,Ž is an example of the riskier fare Mr. Kato brings to the stage. I encourage people to come see Other Desert Cities because I think its important to come and support the non-musi-cals,Ž Ms. Green said. Two seasons ago, she underwrote RedŽ; this year, she is underwriting a musical, The King and I.Ž It fascinates Ms. Green to see what works in Florida ver-sus Cleveland. The shows that really go over at the Cleveland Play-house dont go over here,Ž she said, citing the farce Nois-es Off.Ž And thats funny because both Milt and I are involved with the Cleveland Playhouse.Ž She also finds herself disheartened with South Florida audiences who empty a theater while the performers are still onstage. Where do you have to go that is so important that you cannot be courteous to a performer?Ž she said. You know, these people do not make a million-dollar salary, and part of their payment is to be recognized.Ž Which brings Ms. Green to a little recognition of her own. She enjoys seeing her name on the buildings, and she appreciates the rec-ognition „ she was the Maltzs gala honoree this year, and will receive a Muse Award from the Cultural Council. But there is a logic to her giving that suits her well: Heres the way I live my life. I have five oranges. I eat one, I save one and I give the other three away. For every-thing I have given away, I have gotten it back tenfold, and I think people need to be more charitable. It makes you feel good. Again, volunteering for an organization or helping others is a good thing and it keeps your halo shining.Ž Q ADAM BARON/FLORIDA WEEKLYRoe Green bought a home in Jupiter after her mother died a decade ago.COMMENTARY roger The treacherous Fibahatchee RiverThe state legislative session is about to begin.

Upon arriving in the state capitol, each legislator is immediately offered foie gras and champagne by the states wealthiest lobbyists for big oil, big sugar, big tobacco, big casinos, big pharma and big arms man-ufacturers, along with 36 big others. Then they are placed in ankle bracelets monitored by the National Security Agency. The NSA, under four-star Army Gen. Keith Alexander, is trying to ensure that these powerful men and women do not threaten our traditional way of life by scheduling clandestine meetings with terrorists who actually want to save the Everglades and limit the scope of Second Amendment rights, at the same time. History has shown that if left unmonitored, some politicians will work to prevent Floridians from exercising the two funda-mental rights accorded to them by God and the Founding Fathers: one, to build high-rise condominiums on beaches and plant oil wells in the southern Everglades; and two, to mount .50-caliber machine guns on their vehicles and stand their ground against life-threatening government scrub jays, government gopher tortoises, gov-ernment panthers, government health-care advocates and gay married couples, gov-ernment or otherwise. On maps of the Sunshine State, especially cloudy ones, Tallahassee is located near a town called Tellabigone, which is not far from a river known as the Fibahatchee, which actually threads its way southward out of eastern Tennessee and Georgia. The Fibahatchee runs right through the middle of the state capitol building, where architects and engineers no doubt har-nessed its powers to help flush toilets in the 66 public and very necessary restrooms. From there the Fibahatchee traverses the peninsula, finally emptying unfiltered into Florida Bay just south of Everglades City, where it is widely recognized as a major source of the pollution sl owly killing the bay. Now that you know the setting, let me offer an opinion: I firmly believe our elect-ed leaders will always say the right thing even if its really the wrong thing, because theyre so nice, and their hair is perfect. Take State Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto, a Republican who start-ed her public life in Wellington. Then she met Fort Myers attorney Bruce Strayhorn, who wears cowboy boots, hunts big game from Montana to Mozambique or places close by, and ran Hillary Clintons Southwest Florida presidential campaign leading up to the 2008 election. That cam-paign against Barack Obama can best be summed up as close, but no cigar.Ž She married him, moved west and won the election to her current position as the state senator for District 30. But all that is small change. Sen. Benacquisto has her sights set on the April 22 Republican primary to become the District 19 candidate for the U.S. House of Rep-resentatives. Along with Curt Clawson, Michael Dreikorn and former state Rep. Paige Kreegel, she wants to replace dis-graced U.S. Congressman Trey Radel, who resigned late last month. One thing is perfectly clear: Sen. Benacquisto understands her constituents. Some of them. Which is why she recently posted this apocryphal quote by George Washing-ton for her friends on Facebook: Happy President's Day! Good day to honor our founders commitment to indi-vidual liberty. Great example: 2nd Amend-ment. As George Washington once said, Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American peoples liberty, teeth and keystone under independence." Aint that the truth?Well no, actually. Its not George Washingtons truth, as FOX4 television reporter Warren Wright, a former Fort Myers city councilman, pointed out in a story. If you look up President Washingtons supposed words, the Mount Vernon web-site tells you this: This quotation does not show up in any of Washingtons writings, nor does any closely related quote.Ž When Mr. Wright asked Sen. Benacquisto where the quote came from, somebody on her staff responded in writing: Lizbeth was paying homage to our first president and the wisdom of the founders when they enshrined the right to bear arms in the bill of rights of our Constitution. She is a strong defender of these rights. The quotation was found in a book and, now we know, like the cherry tree and throwing the silver dollar across the Potomac river, it is more folklore than fact." What book? Well, nobody knows. Her staff didnt say, and an online Wikipedia entry lists the quote as spuriousŽ „ never actually utter ed by anyone, until wrongly attributed to President Washington by someone. Or some two. Thus, the quote is so much more folklore than fact that it falls into a special cat-egory known variously as Balderdash,Ž or Hogwash,Ž or in some circles, Bullpucky.Ž In the meantime, George Washington probably wouldnt have appreciated this kind of homageŽ from Sen. Benacquisto. Heres something President Washington really did say, once, in his Farewell Address of 1796: I hold the maxim no less appli-cable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy.Ž But hey, what did he know? He wasnt always a nice guy and his hair wasnt always perfect, even if his wig appeared so. Sure, he crossed the Delaware River in the middle of a cold night, once, and built a big house on the Potomac River in Virginia. So what? He never had to negotiate the treacherous Fibahatchee River in Florida, like the politicians of today. Q


St. Mary’s surgeon first to use new limb lengthening system SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDror Paley M.D., medical director of the Paley Advanced Limb Lengthening Insti-tute at St. Marys Medical Center, is the first and only surgeon in the United States to use the new PRECICE 2 Intramedullary Limb Lengthening System for cosmetic stature length-ening. The Paley Advanced Limb Lengthening Insti-tute at the Advanced Orthopedic Institute at St. Marys Medical Center is adjacent to the hospital and includes operating rooms, phy-sician offices and a physical therapy center. Dr. Paley is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon and is nation-ally and internationally recognized for his expertise in deformity correction and limb lengthening, according to a prepared state-ment by the hospital. Dr. Paley co-designed the new PRECICE 2 system to feature a non-modular intramed-ullary design to simplify its implantation and provides increased nail length and distrac-tion range options to better optimize treat-ment options. The new system allows great-er weight bearing and is able to lengthen up to 8 cm, compared to the first PRECICE System, which only lengthened up to 6.5 cm. The PRECISE 2 system includes a smaller diameter (8.5 mm) nail which will address a large segment of patients whose anatomy was too small for the original, larger PRE-CICE nail devices. We are so proud to have a surgeon on our staff who has played such a signifi-cant role in creating and implementing this ground-breaking technology,Ž said Davide Carbone, CEO of St. Marys Medical Center, in the statement. The PRECICE 2 system will have a tremendous impact on the qual-ity of life of our pediatric and adult patients.Ž Dr. Paley has performed more than 10,000 limb reconstruction surgeries and has devel-oped some of the most advanced surgical methods used for lengthening and deformity correction. His activities in the orthopedic field have been awarded and honored, and Dr. Paley has been published numerous times throughout his career, according to the hospital. Ellipse Technologies Inc., a global medical device company, recently received FDA marketing clearance of the PRECICE 2 Sys-tem in the U.S. The PRECICE system pro-vides a unique solution that allows precisely controlled, noninvasive adjustment of the implant that is unavailable with other treat-ment options. To date, PRECICE devices have been used in more than 700 procedures in 12 countries by more than 100 surgeons. Its initial success has confirmed it as the preferred treatment option for patients with limb length inequality. The PRECICE 2 system makes a great device even better,Ž said Dr. Paley I am able to treat a wider spectrum of patients than ever before.Ž St. Marys Medical Center, a part of Tenet Florida, is a 464-bed acute care hos-pital located at 901 45th Street in West Palm Beach. The hospital has been serving the medical and health care needs of the greater West Palm Beach area for more than 75 years.

Love to help others who can t and wish they could? The Bank of America has the event for you. Author and long-time literacy advocate Brad Meltzer will be the featured speaker for the 23rd annual Love of Literacy Lun-cheon at 11:30 a.m. March 7 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts Cohen Pavilion in West Palm Beach. Tickets are $125 per person or $250 for Patron seats. Table sponsor-ships are available starting at $1,250. The Love of Literacy Luncheon is one of the seasons larg-est events, a sell-out year after year. It raises awareness of the countys significant literacy needs and provides vital funds to the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County to sup-port a multitude of literacy programs serving the community from Boca Raton to Jupiter, and west to Belle Glade. Mr. Meltzer was the first in his immediate family to attend a four-year col-lege, having graduated from the Univer-sity of Michigan. After college, he worked at Games magazine by day and began writing his first novel by night. That novel, Fra-ternity,Ž earned him 24 rejection letters until he sold his second novel, The Tenth Justice,Ž while attending Colum-bia Law School. In 1994, Mr. Meltzer co-wrote the original swearing-in oath that is taken by AmeriCorps members across the country. Mr. Meltzer also is the author of Dead Even,Ž The First Counsel,Ž The Millionaires,Ž The Zero Game,Ž The Book of LiesŽ and The Fifth Assassin.Ž He also wrote two non-fiction books, Heroes For My SonŽ and Heroes For My Daughter,Ž a collection of heroes throughout history.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe blindest of datesRecently, a good friend asked if she could set me up on a blind date with a man named Lyle. I think you two would get along,Ž she said convincingly. The last time I went on a blind date, I was still wearing tube tops and mini-skirts (not on the date, thankfully). Id almost forgotten the feeling of dread that comes with sitting down to coffee with a man Id never met. But this par-ticular friend is wise and intuitive, and we have similar taste in men. So if she thought he was a good fit, who was I to disagree? Id love to,Ž I told her with only the slightest twinge. Lyle emailed me the next day. His message was brief, but it contained no winky faces, no exclamation points, no misspellings or bad grammar. At least over email, he was a dreamboat. The night of our big date, my bedroom looked like it did when I was a teenager: discarded piles of clothes stacked on the bed, shoes kicked off in the corner, makeup strewn in front of the mirror. You would think I had never been on a grown-up date in my life. At one point I stood in front of the mirror wearing a shimmery gold top before shaking my head and opting for a more muted sweater. The trick with a blind date is look-ing good enough but not too good. After all, whats the point of impressing some-one we might not even like? As for Lyle, I didnt have much to go on. He said he had a beard. And hed be wearing a black coat. He could have been any of the men who walked by me as I waited at the meet-ing point. I arrived exactly on time, but as I stood there in the cold trying to look non-chalant, the minutes slipped away and I started to have the uneasy feeling I had been stood up. And then something funny hap-pened. A hand-some stranger in a black coat walked straight up to me, as if we had known each other all our lives. What if the man of your dreams came up to you and said he thought you were pretty,Ž the man said, and wanted to know if you would run off with him?Ž I smiled, despite myself. He had black hair, a spiked metal ring on his finger, and „ despite his email message „ no beard. He looked fierce, a little wild and totally seductive. Did I mention Im good in bed?Ž he said. I laughed, and he stuck out his hand. I took it, and we walked away from the meeting point. Then he stopped and pulled out his phone. Now, if I asked for your number, you might say, Justin, youre crazy. But then I hope youd give it to me anyway.Ž I looked at him. Justin? Who was this guy? Wait a minute,Ž I said. Youre not Lyle?Ž The sexy stranger shook his head. Flustered, I turned to head back to the meeting point as he called out after me, You sure you dont want to come with me?Ž I spent the entire evening wishing I had. Q artis


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEB. 27-MARCH 5, 2014 B3 SOUTH MIAMI U.S. 1 & 73RD STREET 305.341.0092 | PEMBROKE PINES THE SHOPS AT PEMBROKE GARDENS 954.342.5454 PALM BEACH GARDENS DOWNTOWN AT THE GARDENS 561.340.2112 | RASUSHI.COM CONTRACT BRIDGEA tactical approach BY STEVE BECKERIt might seem that South should go down one against proper defense on this deal, but actually three notrump can be made if declarer plays his cards correctly. South wins the heart lead with the queen and is immediately faced with a crucial decision. Given Wests opening bid, declarer can see that if he attacks clubs first to force out the ace, he will almost surely go down. Another heart would come back from West, establishing his suit. South could then cash eight tricks „ two hearts, three diamonds and three clubs. But when he next led a spade, West would win with the ace and run his hearts to put an end to the matter. All this is easily predictable if declarer stops to think things over after win-ning the first trick. The solution should not be long in forthcoming: Rather than lead a club at trick two, South should lead a low spade from his hand toward dummys king! This gives declarer two chances to get home safely. First, there is a good chance that West will make a mistake and not go up with the spade ace. If this happens, South next attacks clubs to secure nine tricks. Second, if West was dealt exactly three spades to the ace, he is helpless whatever he does. Even if he goes up with the ace, South makes nine tricks by scoring four spades, two hearts and three diamonds. The principle that emerges is that a declarer should not always immediately attack his strongest suit „ clubs, in this case „ if there is a good tactical reason for playing another suit first. Bridge is not strictly a game of hardand-fast rules. Rather, a player should base his actions on the common sense of a situation, and not on a rigid for-mula.

It celebrates a turn-of-the-century culture, attitude and dynamic in terms of community,Ž he said. The original play was written for a cast of 24; Mr. Hayes and the shows director, J. Barry Lewis, were able to rework it for a cast of 18, still large given Dramaworks intimate space. But just because Dramaworks is known for presenting classic works does not mean it shies away from newer plays. Hence Israel Horovitzs My Old LadyŽ (Dec. 5-Jan. 4). Israel Horovitz is someone I have established a relationship with over the past few years,Ž Mr. Hayes said. Veteran theatergoers will remember the productions of his plays at Flori-da Stage „ Sins of the Mother,Ž for example. More recently, Delray Beachs Arts Garage presented Mr. Horovitzs Gloucester Blue.Ž In this play, a down-on-his-luck New Yorker inherits an apartment in Paris and must live with his tenants, an old lady and her rigid daughter. The stage production of My Old LadyŽ will come as a film version of the tale starring Maggie Smith is released. Hes going to work on the revisions this summer,Ž Mr. Hayes said. Itll be right around the time theres a lot of excitement about the release of the movie.Ž Dramaworks moves from 21st-century Paris to an 18th-century version of the City of Light for Les Liaisons Dangere-usesŽ (Jan. 30-March 1). So why this show?Because its visually stunning. We havent done anything that was that big of a challenge. Also we havent done anything thing was quite so sexy. Thats probably the production thats going to require the most planning,Ž Mr. Hayes said. It is about high society.But Dramaworks plumbs the depths with its next show, Sam Shepards Bur-ied ChildŽ (March 27-April 26). We go from high-society, 18th-century France to rock-bottom America,Ž Mr. Hayes said. In Mr. Shepards Pulitzer Prize-winning play, a man returns home to find he is unrecognized by his decaying family. It is metaphorically about our buried secrets,Ž Mr. Hayes said. Dramaworks closes out its season with Lady Day at Emersons Bar and GrillŽ (May 14-June 15). In Lanie Roberts play, Billie Holiday takes the stage in Philadelphia just four months before her death. While there, she tells the story of her life and shares more than a dozen songs along the way. It will serve as a good transition into the summer musicals, Mr. Hayes said. But musical or not, it taps into whats essential at Dramaworks. For me, Dramaworks is about telling stories. Youre not going to see musi-cal revues,Ž Mr. Hayes said, adding, As exemplified by Man of La Mancha, its about the storytelling.Ž Q „ New subscriptions to Palm Beach Dramaworks go on sale March 24; individual tickets on sale to the general public Sept. 15.

B16 A&E WEEK OF FEB. 27-MARCH 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY and Offering Private: Personal Training Yoga Meditation Massage And Small Group: Yoga Mat Pilates Harbour Financial Center 2401 PGA Boulevard, Suite 154 Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 561-766-1367 Museum of Art founder Ralph Norton and his wife, sculptor Ann Norton, and the eye immediately travels to the for-mer living room of the home, where the pastels of Ms. Grassi hang. Ms. Grassi works in soft pastel, creating compositions that resonate with vibrant color „ so much for the notion of pastels being muted. I like when they are very strong. I like strong colors,Ž she said during a tour of the exhibition. In such still lifes as Violins and Munari,Ž a pair of instruments sit at the ready as a leopard print hangs behind them. It has a light effect,Ž Ms. Grassi said of the animal pattern. Other paintings have a surreal quality.In Trapped,Ž a 2012 pastel, people in a room struggle to find the exit along a pinkand green-striped wall. Dont mind the human-size lizard or the hip-popotamus peeking out from the side. But if the people in TrappedŽ cannot get out of the room, the people in BarredŽ cannot get in. Again, there is pinkand green-striped wallpaper. Larger than life spiders, but-terflies and a crocodile fill the room. People poke heads and hands into the room between the stripes. They try to get in and they cant,Ž Ms. Grassi said. I dont know what the stripes are, if they are elastic or what.Ž Perhaps they, too, are trapped.Visitors venturing into the next room will find themselves to be part of Mr. Bradfields art. Mr. Bradfield, a designer born in South Africa, explores 18th century France using mirrors and racy images that evoke the vacuous decadence of courtly love. Two courtiers stare at a bare-bottomed woman who sleeps unaware in Peek II.Ž You think to yourself, Shame on them.Ž Then you see yourself reflected in the mirror upon which the image is painted, and appreciate the voyeurism of our times. Mr. Bradfield was inspired by slightly naughty illustrations from the early 20th century, as well as the 18th-century rococo paintings of Boucher and Frago-nard. The idea is about surprise and whimsy,Ž he said. The works are on mirrors installed in antique gesso frames that have been painted white. You might expect to see some of these works in large galleries or loft apart-ments. When I did the installation in New York, it was a very different space,Ž Mr. Bradfield said. But if anything, the intimate Ann Norton space heightens that sense of voy-eurism. Also part of the exhibition are Louis XVI-style chairs and benches, stripped of their gilding and painted white, much like the frames on the artwork. They are covered in pinkand ivorytinted hides with skulls that pay tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen. He had this fascination with mortality and the ephemeral quality of beauty,Ž Mr. Bradfield said. And that form?Ive given them a twist,Ž he said with a smile. Ms. Sandys also gives her work a twist. The bold lines of her sculptures and drawings often come from paper cut-outs. There are themes of temptation and explorations of positive and negative space. In Eves Apple,Ž a hand holds an apple from which a bite has been taken. Ive done quite a lot of Adam and Eve,Ž she said. Its a basic theme.Ž Step outside and two rows of her Red FrolicsŽ stand along the path from the door into the gardens. I had done them in white. Ive now got into the red ones,Ž she said matter-of-factly. The 8-foot columns of cut-out aluminum are titled Princess,Ž Hands,Ž Fishwife,Ž CocktailsŽ and Bird Talk.Ž HandsŽ has two hands on the top of its head that become two birds. Fish-wifeŽ wears fish on her head, much as Medusa wore snakes. But PrincessŽ?This one is made to have the face of Princess Di „ shy Di,Ž Ms. Sandys said. The figures remind one of ancient forms „ after all, theyre meant to be columns. But they have a surreal quality.Ms. Sandys paused to look and smiled.They make a big splash, which is good,Ž she said. As does this little show at Ann Norton.

BEACH READING ‘At Home: A Short History of Private Life’By Bill Bryson(Doubleday, $40)‘One Summer: America, 1927’By Bill Bryson(Doubleday, $28.95)REVIEWED BY LARRY COX Bill Bryson was born in Iowa in 1951. He moved to Britain, where he has lived for most of his adult life. In 1995, Notes from a Small IslandŽ became a bestseller on both sides of the pond and even triggered a celebrated television series. At Home,Ž originally published in 2010, is being reissued in a special illustrated edition, while his latest book, One Summer: America, 1927,Ž makes its debut. This is a cause for celebration. Shortly after Mr. Bryson moved into a former Church of England rectory in rural Norfolk, he went into a rooftop space in search of a leak. Since Victo-rian structures often are a collection of architectural bewilderments, he was not surprised to find a secret space in the attic. This experience inspired At Home,Ž a fascinating excursion into the history behind the place we call home. At HomeŽ features the room-by-room journey of discovery of his Victorian parsonage. Mr. Bryson takes the reader into the kitchen for a discussion of nutrition and the spice trade, and the bedroom for an account of sex, sleep and death. It is an intriguing, lively narrative that will cause you to see your dwelling in an entirely new light.In his new book, One Summer: America, 1927,Ž Mr. Bryson writes that there certain seminal years when historical events seem to almost overwhelm, and 1927 was one of them. He focuses on such happen-ings and personalities as Charles Lindbergh and his trans-Atlantic flight, Queens housewife Ruth Snyder and the murder of her corset-salesman husband, the antics of cigar-chomp-ing Al Capone, baseball legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, the flooding of the mighty Mississippi, and much more. At HomeŽ and One SummerŽ represent exceptional historical writing and are highly recommended.

They served it on a nicely toasted seeded roll, called an Every-thingŽ bun. It was topped with pesto, melted Swiss and Muenster cheeses, grilled onions and toma-toes, plus plenty of the key ingredient „ sliced turkey. We loved the sweet, slightly spicy pickle served on the side, as well as the mixed greens, all of which went down well with one of the fresh choco-late shakes ($4.95). Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Theres something to be said for tradition „ and longevity. Take it from the chef of the River House, Har Laman. Ive been here 17 years, and this September, the restaurant celebrates its 30th year,Ž he said. In a county full of restaurants that open and close within a few months, what does it take to stick around for 30 years, with basically the same menu as when they started? The ambience. Every seat has a water view,Ž he said, pointing to the boats on the Intracoastal Waterway next to the PGA Boulevard bridge just out-side the wide windows. Also consistency „ and quality. Our diners, many who are tourists, know that what they liked five years ago on the menu will be on here when they come back. Our heritage is as a steak-house,Ž he said. Lets face it „ you and I know that steak cuts havent changed in 50 years. Its the same with seafood.Ž Items popular when opened by Frank Callander, former owner of the Rain-dancer steakhouses, are still on the menu: filets and strips, a he-man pork chop, broiled scallops, French onion soup, traditional shrimp cocktail. And one of the last salad bars in the county. Mr. Laman described it as a real labor of love. We have to devote one busboy each shift to it to keep it restocked.Ž The huge portions also are a draw. I had a diner the other night who called me to the table. Im thinking uh-oh ƒ here we go. He said there was a mistake „ he was served a veal chop instead of a pork chop.Ž The chef smiled and told him they dont serve veal „ it was indeed the hefty pork chop. He said it was the best pork chop hes ever eaten. That made my night.Ž Adding dishes that other restaurants specialize in, such as pasta dishes, makes no sense, he said. Why compete with all these other Italian restaurants within two miles? Thats their specialty. Ours is steak and seafood, and we do it very well and consistently.Ž Does the limited menu inhibit his creativity? Not really. I get to do specials, and I keep up with whats happening all around as a member of the ACF (Amer-ican Culinary Federation).Ž The chef works with a staff that has been with him an average of 15 years „ a three-man line puts out all the food. We did 496 covers (dinners) the other night with the three of us. We were crankin!Ž As well as the two dining rooms „ the one upstairs has tablecloths and takes reservations but is the same menu as the downstairs and inside bar „ the restaurant has the Gazebo bar on a small deck by the water. You can order off the bar menu there and with sides, its a full meal, he said. But, he warns, even with no happy hour offered, its packed just like the restaurant, too, in season. Were gear-ing up for the Honda Classic crowd. Thats the beauty of this location „ we get customers from BallenIsles and Admirals Cove and all along the water from Jupiter Island to Palm Beach.Ž Still, the bar can be a best bet. Thats my tip. Whenever I go out, my wife and I eat at the bar. That way, you never have to look for your waiter, and you usually make friends with the bartender who can tip you off to some great new wines or drinks to try.Ž Name: Harold Laman, Chef Har.Ž Age: 54 Original Hometown: Grand Island, N.Y., between Western New York and Ontario on the Niagara River. Restaurant: The River House, 2373 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 694-1188 or Mission: Consistently great cuisine. Youre only as good as your last meal.Ž Cuisine: Basic American steak and seafood. Training: Culinary Institute of America; American Culinary Federation Continuing Education Footwear of choice in the kitchen: Professional clogs, Dansko brand.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restau-rateur or chef? Be truly committed. This is the most demanding profession and also the most rewarding. A good cook/chef will never lack friends or good times.Ž Q In the kitchen with...HAR LAMAN, The River House BY JAN NORRISjnorris@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Chef Har Laman has worked for the River House for 17 years.
