Knight Foundation is the largest founda-tion in the state of Florida. Its tagline is Informed and Engaged Communities,Ž a legacy of mission arising from the Foundations roots in the newspaper business owned by the two brothers for whom the Foundation is named. Accord-ing to Wikipedia, the Knight broth-ers enterprise was the second largest newspaper publishing business in the U.S., boasting a circulation of more than 3 million at the time it was sold off in 2006 to The McClatchy Company. There were 26 communities where the Knight brothers originally owned newspapers. Boca Raton was one of them, the newspaper making its debut in 1969. Knight Ridder, the corporate descendant of the merger that occurred in 1974 between Knight Newspapers, Inc. and Ridder Publications Inc., pub-lished The Boca Raton News following the merger until 1997. The paper fell victim to cost cutting and the creep of massive restructuring as the Internet and smart-phone technology blew up the traditional business model for print media, shuttering many local rags for-ever. As print and traditional sources of news media decline, it is clear the risk is far greater to our communities well-being than the loss of newspapers or a journalistic tradition implies. If you believe decisions are only as good as the information and the facts that go into their making, then how we grapple as a community with issues of educa-tion, the environment, the economy and more, is deeply affected by the vibrancy of information networks and our access to them as a primary resource in sup-port of informed citizenship. The Knight Foundations philanthropy picks up where the uncertain future of newspapers and news media leaves off, based on a core belief that infor-mation is the lifeblood of a strong and prosperous democracy; and that jour-nalistic traditions inspired by the great newspapers of our time need not die with the transformation of traditional news or print media. A portion of the Foundations grant investments are a proxy for Knights historical ties to the 26 former Knight communities, sustain-ing its own brand of company allegiance to these areas through philanthropic investment. The Foundations geographically targeted grants support projects that address the informational interests and needs of each communitys residents. In addition to its Community Initiatives grants, the Foundation has endowed donor advised funds for charitable pur-poses in 18 Knight Communities; and program directors in the other eight cities where the brothers owned papers that manage Knights grantmaking oper-ations in those areas. The big hunch behind the Foundations grant strategies for informed and engaged communities is that place-based foundations are at the intersection where their leadership as institutions can make a genuine difference about what it cares about most. For nearly a decade the Foundation has been invest-ing in community, and place-based foun-dations to encourage their leadership in funding media and undertaking infor-mation initiatives in their own back-yards that facilitate citizen engagement. Knights aim is a national network of learning communities to inspire their residents to strengthen democracy and build a successful future.Ž The Foundation also castes a big shadow nationally. Its big pictureŽ initiatives are shaping the nations discourse in national forums on the importance of good information to a strong, vibrant democracy. The Foun-dation strives to educate a broad audi-ence about the mind-boggling, digital infrastructure that is informations new ways and means. Under the leadership of Alberto Ibargen, the Foundations president and CEO, Knight advances its cutting-edge philanthropy to sustain the best aspects of journalism and use innovation to expand the impact of information in the digital age.Ž It is a tall order for any foundation, even with the financial clout that Knight wields. The Foundation is closing in on nearly $1 billion dollars in grants made since its founding. Keeping up is tough. Technology and innovations in media and the trends that define them are accelerating at warp speed and the vol-ume of data is at tsunami proportions. According to the 2014 Trend Report published by the Webb Media Group, an ordinary American generates more data in a day than an 18th Century ancestor generated in a lifetime. The Knight Foundation understood the implications of the digital revolu-tion before most foundations knew what Twitter was or had any interest in find-ing out; and long before foundations had media-related grantmaking on their radar. Knight cares deeply about these issues; and the Foundation wants others to care about them, too. They have used the Foundations stature and philan-thropic credentials to make their case.

Lumumba died unexpect-edly at the age of 66 of an apparent heart attack. Last June, he won the mayoral race in this capital of Mississippi, a city steeped in the history of racism and violence. He was a champion of human rights, a pioneering radical attorney, a proud Black Nationalist and a dedicated public servant. While his friends, fam-ily and allies mourn his death, there is much in his life to celebrate. First, take a step back, and look at the history of Jackson, Miss. As my Democ-racy Now!Ž news hour co-host, Juan Gonzalez, pointed out when we inter-viewed Lumumba the day after he was elected, Jackson was a center of racism and racial oppression over centuries. The city was named after Andrew Jack-son by the white settlers when Jackson, in 1820 was able, as Indian commissioner, to pressure the Choctaw Indians to give up 13 million acres of land ... in the Treaty of Doaks Stand. Thats why the white settlers named the city after Jackson, because of his success at ethnic cleansing.Ž Jackson, Miss., where the NAACPs first field secretary for Mis-sissippi, Medgar Evers, was assassinated on the evening of June 12, 1963. This city is just 80 miles from Philadelphia, Miss., where Freedom Summer activ-ists Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner were murdered, and 95 miles from Money, Miss., where 14-year-old Emmett Till was kidnapped, tortured and murdered in 1955 for allegedly wolf-whistlingŽ at a white woman. Jackson, Miss., is the political, economic and historic center of so much violence and racial hatred, which is why Lumum-bas victory in the mayoral race held such import. Lumumba told me last June, I attribute the victory that we had this last week to the people, the people of Jack-son, who were more than ready to have leadership that was forward-looking and ready to raise Jackson to a different level of development, ready to embrace the ideas that all government should do the most to protect the human rights of the people.Ž He was dedicated to human rights, and was embarking on a progres-sive agenda for the city. His slogan read One City, One Aim, One Destiny.Ž Lumumba was born Edwin Finley Taliaferro, in Detroit. His parents involved him with civil-rights organiz-ing at an early age. Lumumbas expla-nation to the Jackson Free Press on how he changed his name is worth repeating. He said: I picked the name Chokwe because in my African history class I learned that the Chokwe tribe, which is a tribe that still exists, was one of the last tribes to resist the slave trade successfully in northeast Angola. The name literally means hunter. The second name, Lumumba, was the name of a great African leader who began to lead Africa to decolonize, to indepen-dence. He was from the Congo. Lumum-ba means gifted. So literally, it means gifted hunter. He became a lawyer, and represented people like the activist Assata Shakur and the rap artist Tupac Shakur. He suc-cessfully appealed to the governor the life sentences of two sisters, Gladys and Jamie Scott, imprisoned for the robbery of $11. They were released after serving 16 years in prison. In 2009, he ran for and won a seat on the Jackson City Council. Four years later, he became mayor, with an ambitious agenda and strong pub-lic support. Just this past month, on Jan. 14, the voters of Jackson approved an increase in the local sales tax of 1 percent. Along with increases in the water and sewer rates, Lumumba was going to raise $700 million to improve the citys infrastructure, and leverage that for more funding through bonds. He told me: We are a population here now in the need of a lot of development. Development is one of the tracks or one of the roads to human rights and to the recognition of human rights, especially our economic human rights.Ž Lumumbas sudden death has left his broad community reeling. A close ally of Lumumbas, Bill Chandler, executive director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, told me, We look for-ward to continuing his vision for the city of Jackson.Ž The new, publicly approved sales tax went into effect March 1. On the first weekend in May, a conference that Lumumba helped organize, Jack-son Rising, will take place, promoting economic alternatives like cooperative business ownership. The inspired vision of Chokwe Lumumba continues. 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 1,200 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.A military budget of delusionThe Obama administration says that we need to end what it calls the era of austerityŽ in Washington. Notably excluded from this admonition is the one department of government that is actually experiencing austerity worthy of the name. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel unveiled a military budget that will reduce the U.S. Army to pre-World War II levels. The spin is that this will be a smarter force better suited to 21st-century challenges, but everyone knows that it is all about accommodating the trillion dollars in defense cuts adopted during the recent Beltway budgetary wars. We obviously arent at the same point as the British in the 19th century, when Bismarck scoffed that if the British army invaded, hed have it arrested. But 570,000 troops were barely enough to fight the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and the Hagel budget will take us to 450,000, or „ if the defense sequester isnt fur-ther relaxed „ even fewer. It is not quite true that the cuts are undertaken without any strategic thought. The Obama administrations strategic thought is... that we need no strategic thought. Understandably, we dont want to fight another grinding ground war. But this doesnt mean we wont have to, or we wont experience other nasty sur-prises. It is an unfortunate part of the American tradition to convince our-selves, when we find it convenient, that the world is not a dangerous place that always demands our attention, or else. In 1939, the United States had an Army of 185,000 men on the cusp of histo-rys most cataclysmic war. We believed conflicts could always be worked out among nations, and that war served no ones interests, and so it was a thing of the past. It was odd,Ž the late historian Stephen Ambrose writes, that a nation that had come into existence through a victorious war, gained large portions of its territory through war, established its industrial revolution and national unity through a bloody civil war, and won a colonial empire through war, could believe that war profited no one.Ž But so it did. As soon as World War II ended, we embarked on a carelessly pre-cipitous demobilization that junked one of the most fearsome Western armies ever assembled. Just having liberated Europe, we still managed to find our-selves unprepared for the onset of the Korean War. Defenders of the current defense cuts say that we still spend more on our mili-tary than anyone else in the world. True, but we arent a mere regional power. Unless we want to outsource patrolling the global sea lanes to China and the security of Europe to Russia, we will always have to spend substantially more than anyone else does. Our allies arent in any position to pick up the slack. When the French army wants to go anywhere, we have to fly it. The entire British navy is smaller than the fleet sent to take back the Falk-lands in the 1980s. President Barack Obama is a devoted believer in the efficacy of government spending as government spending „ on everything but defense. In 2009, it was $800 billion for stimulus but not a cent for defense. We may not regret it this year or the next. But regret it we will. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Learning about advances in veterinary medicine and checking out new products and pharmaceuticals is an essential part of keeping up-to-date in my field. At the 2014 Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas last month, I attended some great educational sessions and discov-ered some new veterinary and consumer products that I will follow with interest. They have a lot of potential for not only helping our pets, but also helping us to learn more about them. Heres a sam-pling of products and information that I ran across: Q Apoquel: Who hasnt lived with at least one itchy dog? Sometimes their condition is so bad it makes you want to start scratching yourself. With this new drug, some dogs may find rapid relief, maybe even within a few hours. Its not a steroid, so it doesnt have the side effects that are associated with those types of drugs. The drug works by targeting cyto-kines (proteins) associated with itching and inflammation. Its suitable for dogs with flea allergies, food allergies or con-tact allergies. Q Voyce: Do you have a Fitbit or Nike Fuel band? Now, in addition to tracking your own heart rate, respiratory rate and activity levels, you can collect that data for your dog, too, with the Voyce, a collar that monitors vital signs, calories burned and more. For a monthly fee, you and your veterinarian can access the infor-mation, set goals for your dog, and note changes that may be early indicators of problems. You can also receive articles, videos and other information specific to your dog. The collar is waterproof to one meter. Q Whistle: This activity monitor attaches to your dogs collar and keeps track of how much time is spent on walks, play and rest. You can set daily goals and get weekly updates. The infor-mation is easy to access with a free app on your iOS or Android phone. You can share the information with your veteri-narian and compare your dogs activity level with dogs of the same breed, age or weight. The device is waterproof and has a 10-day rechargeable battery. Q Canine intelligence: Psychologist and dog smarts expert Dr. Stanley Coren of the University of British Columbia spoke on how we can measure the intel-ligence of dogs. He had a lot of fascinat-ing things to say, but the takeaway is that when it comes to language, recognizing objects and the ability to form concepts, most dogs have the mental ability of a 2or 3-year-old child. If we are teach-ing a skill or presenting a problem to be solved to a dog, its important to consider whether a toddler could learn the same thing. If not, we may need to rethink whether its something the dog could do. Q Older pets: Veterinary anesthesiology specialist Dr. Courtney Baetge of Texas A&M University addressed the special needs of geriatric animals. You might think that sedation is safer for a senior pet, but Dr. Baetge says general anesthesia is a better choice because it protects the airway, provides complete oxygen delivery and allows for ventila-tor support if needed. What qualifies as older? We typically describe animals as geriatric when they reach 75 percent to 80 percent of the average life span for their breed or species, but we cant always say for sure in the case of mixed breeds or animals with unknown histo-ries. Thats just a fraction of the information that I „ and maybe your own veteri-narian „ gathered at the conference. Its our goal to keep up with the latest news and science so we can give your pet the best care possible. Q Allergies are a common and uncomfortable problem for dogs. A new medication may help ease the itch.

It gives you an opportunity to see all the shops and its just a fun evening,Ž said Scott Velozo, one of the steering committee chairmen for the event, which benefits the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. In previous years, tents teeming with caterers and restaurants filled the mid-dle of the street offering small-plate fare. This year, its about the food trucks.Visitors can sample fare from trucks that include InspirAsian, JOJI Yogurt, Curbside Gourmet, International Clas-sic Cuisine, Da Burger Shack, Crazydilla and Amour des Crepes. All the shops are going to serve beverages that will complement the gour-met food trucks that will be part of festivities this year,Ž Ms. Pace said.

Its a little bit more compact and easier for people to get around. Every different area is going to have something different,Ž Ms. Pace said. Mr. Velozo said he encourages patrons to buy the tickets online „ after all, they are $10 cheaper if purchased in advance. And dont forget „ those who pay $90 per person can attend the Atlas Afterparty, which is in a tent this year, with a dedicated bar and plenty of sweet and savory food provided by Aioli Res-taurant. I think its going to be an event that people talk about and look forward to each year,Ž said Ms. Pace. Im glad its back.Ž Q ANTIQUESFrom page 1 LUCIEN CAPEHART PHOTOGRAPHYJorge Pesquera, Discover the Palm Beaches; Faustina Pace, Faustina Pace Antiques; Kevin Clark, Young Friends Steering Committee co-chair; Allison Reckson, Palm Beach Illustrated; and Scott Velozo, Young Friends Steering Committee co-chair, gather at Belle and Maxwell’s, a restaurant on Antique Row. >> What: Evening on Antique Row: Redux! >> When: 6 p.m.-9 p.m. March 8 >> Where: Along South Dixie Highway between Southern Boulevard and Monroe Drive, West Palm Beach. >> Cost: $40 advance, $50 at the door; host committee/after-party, $90 advance, $100 at the door >> Info: historicalsocietypbc.org

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYIt was Mr. Churchill, after all, who pointed out that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.Ž Thirteen of those men and women represent Palm Beach County in whole or part, including nine representatives and four senators. Together they will put Mr. Churchills axiom to the test. Here, Florida Weekly offers a brief glance at the 2014 legislative session through the eyes of elected leaders willing to talk about major issues on which they will vote. Every member of the Palm Beach County delegation was invited to express his or her views. Some responded at length, some responded with brevity or merely to some of the issue questions, and some chose not to respond. For readers who may wish to contact members of the delegation, we list email addresses and telephone numbers for each, with this caveat: emails to many legislators may go unread unless correspondents fol-low up with phone calls to staff. We asked legislators to weigh in on eight issues: Medicaid expansion: yes or no?This may be one of the most costly questions in the state of Florida, one of 23 states whose legislature has so far rejected federal money to medi-cally insure an estimated million low-income adults who do not fall under the umbrella of Affordable Care. Start-ing this year and for the next two years, the federal government would pay 100 percent of that bill, then reduce its contribution gradually until 2020, when it would continue to pay 90 percent in perpetuity. State government employee retirement plans: Should legislators cut back the current plans, change them, or leave them alone? Medical marijuana: To what extent, if at all, should legislators embrace the legalization of cannabis? Cleaning up fresh water: How best to proceed? Another immensely costly question. Gambling: Should it be expanded in Florida? Education: House speaker Rep. Will Weatherford favors in-state tuition rates to Florida universities for quali-fied undocumented immigrants. Yes or no? Red-light cameras: Yes or no?* A state minimum wage: Should legislators require that the state minimum match the federal minimum wage for all employees? Unlike some other legislative sessions, this one will play out against the backdrop of an election year in which, traditionally, politicians step carefully around controversial issues. And this year (the 2014 fiscal year, beginning July 1), the state has a budget surplus of more than $1 billion, which is why Gov. Rick Scotts proposed bud-get of $74.2 billion „ the highest in the states history if legislators pass it during the session „ can include both gives and takes, he says. For example, Gov. Scott proposes tax cuts for manufacturers, a sales-tax suspension for back-to-school buying and reduced vehicle registration fees among others, amounting to about $500 million. (Hes named his 2014 budget the Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget.Ž) On the other hand, he proposes increased spending for education on every level; money for cancer research at the states major institutions; and almost $200 million for Everglades res-toration and environmentally signifi-cant land purchases designed to help solve Floridas water troubles. Critics call some of that ironic, given the governors massive cuts to environ-mental spending and education in 2011, which they claim has caused some of the problems the state now faces. And even his allies in the legislature warn that they may only accept some of his budget proposals „ which is par for the course. Here, then, are the views of our delegates as they enter the spring session, keeping one eye on the issues and the other on a November election. QQQPALM BEACH REPRESENTATIVESDave Kerner, Dem.District 87Medicaid expansion, yes or no? Absolutely. This is one of my top pri-orities. I am hopeful that we will receive another hearing on this particular issue (and) I am hopeful that we can make some progress on finding a way to accept the federal funds.Ž State government employee retire-ment plans: change them? Leave them alone. The system is healthy. We grossly underpay our state employees, and this benefit is one of the only ways we can continue to attract talent to our state government.Ž Medical marijuana: yes or no? Absolutely. I have co-sponsored a med-ical marijuana bill, but I am excited to see that Florida voters will have an opportunity to decide for themselves how they want their state to address the issue.Ž Cleaning up fresh water (no comment) Gambling: Should it be expanded in Florida? (no comment) In-state tuition rates for qualified illegal immigrants. Yes, I support this bill strongly. I co-sponsored this bill last year and I am disappointed we have not passed this measure into law yet. What kind of message are we send-ing to our children when we impose out-of-state tuition to those members of the community who wish to receive an education?Ž Red-light cameras: yes or no? (no comment)A state minimum wage equaling the federal minimum wage for all employees? We must raise the minimum wage and allow full-time workers to be able to support their families.Ž QQQMark PaffordDem., District 86Medicaid expansion, yes or no? I am hopeful well see some sort of expansion. Last year we ended the ses-sion with the Senate „ the Democrats in the Senate and House „ being sup-portive of it. And it also appeared that the governor was supportive of that Medicaid expansion plan. If I wasnt an optimist it would be hard to do this job. So Im hopeful.State government employee retire-ment plans: change them? We do not need to touch a system that is working not only well, but one of the best systems in the country. We already have the leanest government out of all 50 states. Our ratio of government employees to normal Floridians is the leanest in the country. Its close to one per thousand. So in my view, in a state that has not provided the highest salaries over the years, in a state that is already the leanest, where our employees are the most anxious and stressed out and some of them close to the poverty level, the FRS „ the Florida Retire-ment System „ is seen as one of the best in the world. People take a job in state or local government, and they understand theyre not going to be millionaires. And somebody says, were not going to hurt those people, but well put newer people coming in into a differ-ent system. Really? What that does is discontinue the dollars going in and makes the current system potentially more risky for those folks retiring. It is shameful anybody would introduce legislation that would impact middle-class people. That is class war-fare and its shameful.ŽMedical marijuana: yes or no? I cosponsored the first two bills ever filed in the legislature. Im for the expansion and use of marijuana in medical care. For me to get in the way of anybody trying to live their life with less pain in a disease by using a substance that hasnt been shown to hurt people, is unimaginable. If the legislature doesnt put something through this session, the constitutional ballot amendment will be productive.ŽCleaning up fresh water First let me position this by saying that the governor, he slaughtered the budgets and staffs of places like the South Flor-ida Water Management District, which were working to create these projects that would bring down the nutrients. Sadly but awkwardly in a good way, the Indian River Lagoon issue has occurred in Republican Senator Joe Negrons backyard, where there wasnt much of an emphasis on one of the most critical issues the state of Florida has, which is not only water flow but restoration of first magnitude springs, and such things as destroyed oyster populations. We have a state that because of its abandonment of environmentally valu-able properties is racing to help people suffering not only drops in property values, but people now questioning whether theyll even have good drink-ing water, and what theyll have to do if they dont. This is a huge issue. To his credit, Representative and speaker-designate Steve Crisafulli said we need to look at water as a state issue. The devil remains in the details. For folks living in Sen. Negrons district, it wont be fixed over night. Youll have to continue to flush water east and west when it gets high in Lake Okeechobee. The Kissimmee must have restoration, the oxbows and marshes have to be restored, and we need to bring water entering the lake into it in the most pristine way.ŽGambling expansion, yes or no? This issue contains very complex sce-narios. You have the Seminole con-tract, you have the racetracks and dog tracks, the small casinos in Broward and Dade, and people in those counties who may be very supportive. But you also have people concerned about the casino resort destination. You mention gambling, and some people will correct you. If you say gaming, youre okay. If you say, gam-bling, youre not. So you have a state firmly partitioned and arguably divided by a Bible belt, and areas to the south that arguably arent that way, and legisla-tors who represent their folks with the same approaches. I think this year may be an effort to put a gaming commission in place, and to further our understanding what the upshot of all this is. But I dont think a bill comes forward this year, that nec-essarily does anything. There are so many people at odds with one another, no pun intended, or who have different positions on the issue. People up north may be happy with a re-do in Miami-Dade or Bro-ward County. But people in Palm Beach County wonder what effect that would have on the Kennel Club in terms of jobs. Ive always had the opinion personally that I would not want to see expan-sion, but you have to see the bill and understand what will happen. Nobody has a clue. Its a 3,200-page bill, and it has not been released yet.ŽIn-state tuition rates for qualified undocumented students I am white, I am a man, Im 47, I was born in North-shore Hospital in rural Dade County in 1967. So I was born here. I am a United States citizen. Many of these kids may have a similar type of birth certificate, their parents are undocumented, and they dont have the documents to prove they should get in-state tuition. Its absolutely absurd were not permitting them to have the same great chance we have had. For us to have this issue in 2014 is absurd, especially in a state that prides itself on diversity and the many different ethnic backgrounds that make up Florida. If were going to do something, lets do it. Anybody who is born in this country or grew up here „ come on, this is an issue? But some-times the rhetoric isnt so bad, and we get things done. I hope this is one of those times.ŽRed-light cameras: yes or no? Ive always supported them. I know the argument is that government is mak-ing an absurd amount of money, and I dont want to see wasted dollars for no purpose. Ill also say that this is a state that has spent a tremendous amount of time in reducing the revenue to local government and making it difficult to spend on constituents and basic ser-vices. So, there are a huge amount of lives lost with side impacts and collisions. That data coming out shows that those are being reduced by cameras, but youre getting rear-end accidents.AGENDAFrom page 1 SEE AGENDA, A10 X

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYI think there will be a bill that narrows down the dollars and how theyre used that come in off these red-light cameras. Right now, theyre helping balance the budget because legisla-tors are afraid to look at other revenue sources. So from what Im hearing there will be a red-light camera bill that deals with this.ŽState minimum wage for all employ-ees? We need to begin supporting the middle class in this state. This year, an election year, the majority of actions and words coming out of the governors office will seek to have smooth sailing „ theyll be happy-go-lucky-were-here-for-you. But they will push back on minimum wage. If were going to do something for the middle class, and it isnt top-down in terms of tax breaks, we have to ask, how do we try to improve an economy and make it vibrant? You help the engine of any economy by improving the ability of people to purchase more goods. It may be very FDR of me, but Im all about giving every person in the middle class the ability to have every chance there is to have the American dream. And weve not done that. This year in the face of an election that could harm the Republican governor, now were paying attention to things we havent paid attention to before.Ž QQQBobby PowellDem., District 88Medicaid expansion, yes or no? I wouldnt call it Medicaid expansion, I think of it as expansion of health care to some of our most vulnerable citizens in Florida. Of course Im in favor, we have to do this. The only thing I would add is this: doing this would allow us to receive funding from the federal gov-ernment to implement this. We need that help.ŽState government employee retire-ment plans: Change them? We stick with what we have. Im not in support of any changes to the plan. More spe-cifically, I am of the understanding that the plan is currently actuarily sound. So there is no need to make any significant changes. I also understood that police and firefighters would be exempted from changes of defined contribution but new employees can decide whether to choose the option. But I think its in all our best interests to stick with the plan as it is right now.ŽMedical marijuana: Yes or no? Im neutral on that issue. I dont feel strong-ly one way or the other. As we continue to move forward society will decide.ŽCleaning up fresh water By trade Im an urban planner. Not an environ-mentalist. Nor do I have the background to solve this problem „ we have people more qualified, who know the science that will help clean up waterways. That said, I would support a sustained commitment of state resources for develop-ment of supplies and quality improve-ments of water using projects that implement best-management practices. And just as importantly, infrastructure needs. I would also support legislation that would be put in place to clean or man-age our waterway systems much more effectively.Gambling expansion, yes or no? Another issue on which the jury is still out. Ive listened to both sides of the argument. Now, my opinion is still evolving, so Im completely neutral on the issue.ŽIn-state tuition for qualified illegal immigrants The bill that cleared the higher education and workforce com-mittee was based on a recent court case. The children of undocumented immi-grants who were born here in the state of Florida could go to college and pay in-state tuition rates. Its my understanding that these students can go to college now, but theyre forced to pay out-of-state or international tuition rates. Based on the fact that their parents may be children of undocumented immigrants. Its an inconsistency within our state, where we have our own citizens unable to pay in-state tuitions. The bill will be set forth to fix that. I support that.ŽRed-light cameras: yes or no? I dont think about them too much.ŽA state minimum wage for all employees? The current minimum wage is $7.79. It rises every year. We have a scale here where it increases. However, Rep. Cynthia Stafford has filed a bill that would increase mini-mum wage to meet a new federal level, and its a topic that deserves a lot of discussion. Its something that every-one can discuss and maybe come to a point where they truly understand the best benefits. We call it minimum wage „ and the idea now is how to move forward. An adjustment should be made on a living wage, where people can be adjusted for the cost of living in the state.Ž QQQPat Rooney GOP, District 85: Medicaid expansion: Im for trying to help as many as we can with health care coverage. No matter who you talk to, theyre in favor of that. The issue the Republicans have is whos going to pay for it. While the feds have offered to pay the first three years for free, and 90 percent after „ and while that sounds good „ the problem that we have is were a balanced-budget state. We cant print money, we have to live within our means. So even though 90 percent is said to be covered from 2020 on, we dont know what that number will be. And if the feds did not cover their share, where would we be? Relying on them is uncertain. We came up with a plan that would insure a whole bunch of folks that would need to be covered „ except able bodies. But that didnt mesh with what the governor, the senate and the house Democrats wanted, so it didnt go any-where. I would think something like that would come back up during this ses-sion. The House chair, Rep. Richard Corcoran, will try to do something again this year. One caveat being, I dont think the speakers position (Rep. Will Weatherford) has changed on fed-eral government involvement. Things can change and happen, but I dont right now expect it to be much different.ŽMedical marijuana: I am in favor of what the chairman has proposed about Charlo ttes Webb, in which it only has a small amount of the drug that gives you the high feeling, not enough to make you unstable. This really helps kids or adults that have seizures and I co-sponsored that in the House. Sen. Clemens has a bill more broad than just Charlo ttes Web. And more broad than that is the Constitutional amendment to be put before voters. I agree with this to some extent, but its too broad for what people in the state would want at this point. We need to have some gradual feeling for where this is going to go. Its too big a jump for people in Florida right now. All in all, if its used for medical purposes, people in the legislature are okay with it. But we have to have some scientific evidence that were not just legalizing something widely available. One representative told me that the way the Constitutional amendment is worded, if a college student is simply suffering stress, they can get a pre-scription.ŽGambling expansion I recuse myself from voting, since my family owns the Palm Beach Kennel Club. But I dont have to avoid offering my opinion. I would agree with some kind of comprehensive look at where we are with this. For too long we buried our head in the sand, and pretended that all these forms of gambling that we have are not going on. For those busi-nesses that have been here over time like ours, and try to do things the right way, we understand that when you have Internet cafes and so on, there are legal issues. And there are concerns when you try to regulate them. But we need to be adults about this. Florida is either the third or fourth largest gam-bling state, but were not getting the revenue out of it we could be because we dont want to take an adult look at it. Lets tax it, or if not, lets really work to benefit from it. My dad has always said, If the state makes an affirmative decision that they dont want to be in the gambling busi-ness, then well give up our license. But the states in the business by its lottery, and its condoning a lot of other forms, too. I do believe we need a gaming commission made up of folks either in the industry or in law enforcement. We should have one regulatory body over-seeing this stuff, and not piecemeal it out to various departments.Ž Clean water — how do we get there in 10 years? Storage, storage and storage. I was on the South Florida Water Management District for three years ƒ thats what I learned. Aside from air, water is one of our necessities of life „ its not an infinite resource, either. You can only put so many straws in the aquifers, or you have to develop reverse osmosis desali-nization „ all those things. Theyre expensive, and using our surface water is difficult. For the most part, people take water from the ground. So we need a comprehensive approach toward a very finite resource. Because government is generally reac-tive, we have to be proactive. Water supply and water quality depend on Everglades restoration. We need an adult approach, we need to sit down at the table with all the stakeholders „ the Army Corps, fishermen, home-owners, environmentalists and farmers, water farming, and figure this out. I know there are smart people out there to figure out the problems, but getting everybody to the table and starting to work on it is one of the big-gest problems. Raising the Tamiami Trail, which has acted like a manmade dam for so long ƒ obviously there are things that, if we can do more of them, well see faster results.ŽIn-state tuition for qualified undoc-umented students: I voted for that last year. I think theres a perception amongst Republicans that anything dealing with immigrants or immigra-tion is going to be met with a negative reaction. But the Speaker of the House took a different view: These were kids brought here by their parents. These kids didnt have a choice. Theyve gone to school here, they should have the same in-state opportunities as a resi-dent. I dont have an issue with it. And we do need to have a more comprehensive look at immigration.ŽState government employee retire-ment plan I view looking at better ways as proactive, not as a problem or a major issue. Were paying $500 million to state employees, but at some point as you can see by Detroit, those pension funds are not going to be there. How to be fair, then? The Speaker has come up with a compromise, which is that people in future would have pensions that act more like a 401k. If you stay in them long enough they will be worth some-thing. Its not a definitive amount of money. This year the Speaker said he would not include fire and police in new plans because theyre special risk. Im hear-ing hes having trouble on the Senate side so I dont know if a change will happen. It should be looked at, though. Its not too popular with state employ-ees, but theyre trying to prevent some-thing 20 years down the road „ to see what we can do about it now. It might not be quite as good as the folks with defined benefits have.State minimum wage equaling a federal minimum wage Our minimum wage is already $7.93, I did a bit of research. Most states, its around $7.50 per hour. In my business, I want to get the best people because its a competitive advantage. So I pay them a little more. Its an economic thing. Philosophically, lets designate a certain amount. You dont want busi-nesses to not pay anything „ and his-AGENDAFrom page 8

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 NEWS A11 torically, they were once taking com-plete advantage of employees. On the surface, Im sure many people are for it, but if we do it, there will be consequences. Is the amount were offering fair? Is it some kind of cost-of-living tweak? I hate to sound wishy-washy. And Im not against it, but you have to understand what could happen if we do it.ŽRed-light cameras West Palm has them. There are important safety issues, but also money issues. When it comes to legislation, I support it, if theyre used strictly as a safety measure. They decrease major accidents but people get rear-ended at intersections. So I would like to see more scientific studies done on cam-eras as a safety measure. Philosophically, Im against them. I dont like machines knowing where I am, or giving me tickets. Theres a due process issue. So Im not sold on the legality.Ž QQQPALM BEACH SENATORS:Sen. Jeff Clemens Dem., District 27Medicaid expansion, yes or no? Absolutely, yes. The Senate vote was 38 to 1 to do that. In a bipartisan way. The problem continues to be the House. Once your speaker (Rep. Will Weather-ford) has made a declaratory statement against it, all the other people have to fall in line. Theyre rejecting healthcare for almost a million people.State government employee retire-ment plans: Change them? Keep them as they are. Its one of the bestfunded employment plans in the coun-try. The private sector could learn a lot from this plan. If we dont have some sort of safety net for people as were liv-ing longer and longer, who will provide that? Taxpayers. So why not create a sys-tem that will cost less up front, and save taxpayer dollars down the road?Medical marijuana: yes or no? Im the original sponsor of the first-ever medical marijuana bill in the state, in 2011. Ive been a leader in the legislature on that issue for four years. The reason we have a Constitutional amendment is because they refused to hear my bill. At root, its a compassion issue. When someone in a wheelchair rolls into your office, looks you in the eye and says, Ive tried everything else and Im in so much pain, are you going to say you dont want to help them?Cleaning up fresh water: how should we proceed? Im supportive of the work that Sen. Negron is doing in the Senate. One part of the plan thats miss-ing is requiring the folks in Central Florida to do a better job of cleaning their water, their waste-water that they put back out into the environment. Weve talked about these large areas of agricultural land that could be used to (for lack of a better term) leach out the contaminants, and thats fine. But how about requiring big ag to do the same thing those of us in coastal com-munities have to do with our water? Find a better way to clean it up before it gets put into the Lake. The parts per million of things like phosphorous that goes into Lake Okeechobee is greater than what comes out of the lake.ŽGambling expansion? Yes. We already have gambling on every street corner in the state, which is what hap-pens when you go to buy a lotto ticket. To me its just another business and we should allow them to expand just like we would allow any other business to expand.ŽIn-state tuition rates for undocu-mented students? Yes.Red-light cameras: yes or no? I understand it upsets people. Ive been the recipient of a red light camera tick-et and it changed my behavior. Im now more cautious when I approach an intersection. Most studies show there is an increase in smaller accidents because of them, and a decrease in fatalities, and Im for saving life. Besides, theyve been in use for years.ŽA state minimum wage for all employees Income inequality is the greatest problem that we need to solve in America today. Wages have not kept pace with inflation, meaning your dollar goes less far than it used to 20 years ago. I just cant buy into the claim that pay-ing American workers better is going to somehow damage business. Not when you have a company like Costco that has managed to make tremendous profits while still taking care of their workers. Its a model everybody should follow. The bottom line is, your workers have to have enough money to come back and buy your products. And that will make you more profit.Ž QQQMaria Lorts Sachs Dem., District 34Medicaid expansion? Yes.ŽEmployee retirement plans? Leave them alone.ŽMedical marijuana? Leave it up to the people.ŽClean Water Cleaning up Lake Okeechobee has three steps: A. Begin phasing out septic tanksB. Increase the use of water farming to filter the water. C. Reduce the number of nutrients from agricultural wash-off into the lake.ŽGambling expansion Regulate it, and leave expansion up to the people in the counties.ŽIn-state tuition for qualified undoc-umented students I favor in-state tuition for qualified students and we need state-wide, high-speed Internet access to all schools.ŽRed-light cameras Reduce the fines and leave it up to the local counties for a vote.ŽState minimum wage for all employ-ees I favor a state minimum wage which will benefit companies by keeping quali-fied employees and put more money in circulation as salaries go up.Ž Q 3667 120th Avenue South Wellington, Florida 33414 For ticket options, please visit InternationalPoloClub.com or call 561.204.5687 P hotography by LILA PHOTO Polo and BrunchThe Perfect Match Experience the energy of world-class polo and brunch at the International Polo Club.

COMMENTARYThe high cost of ‘Enterprise’Its probably too late for those who have entered late-middle age to drop their spoons and pick up a five-gallon bucket. But their children still have time.That way, they can ladle much more than their full share of soup from the tax-funded trough known as Enterprise Florida, like so many others are doing. Enterprise Florida is a state agency operating out of Tallahassee. Its tasked with bringing com-panies and jobs from the nation and the world to Florida. Last year, EFs budget of $57.4 million came almost completely from taxpayers „ 97.6 percent, or about $56 million. The rest came from private donors, which is why EF likes to call itself a public-private agency. EFs CEO, Gray Swooped, has a big, warm Southern smile. Gov. Rick Scott says hes doing a fabulous job. Mr. Swooped came into the fabulous job from another taxpayer-funded position in Mis-sissippi, where he grew up, according to an online biography, and from which he brought two of his Enterprise Florida staffers, Chief Operating Officer Graff Salmon and Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Medley. So, from Mississippi, we have Gray Swooped, Graff Salmon and Melissa Medley (GS, GS and MM). The three of them have the sole Power of Spend (POF) as I call it, known more formally as Unlim-ited Signing Authority.Ž Unfortunately, the acronym for that almost unheard-of power is USA. Get this: They are the only three citizens in a state of some 19.65 million people, a state that will surpass New York this month to become the third-largest in the United States, according to demographers, who are authorized to spend money for Enterprise Flori-da „ literally to sign off on contracts and purchases that nobody would think of. And all in the name of We The People. Theyre buying crucial things „ at least for anybody with a five-gallon bucket: luxury suites at Yankee Stadium in New York for $22,000. Or $13,000 for who knows what at the San Diego Zoo. Or $12,000 for Texas Rangers baseball. Or money for limousines and fancy restaurants and charter fishing boats. And this: about $30,000 a month for 20 months, on credit cards. Those purchases are undefined. The records dont show how that money was spent, but they should. This fact, however, is clear: You paid for them. I didnt come up with this out of the blue. It was reported recently by a scrappy CBS-12 television news reporter in Palm Beach County named Michael Buczyner, who got the public records for 20 months of Enterprise Florida spending, ending last August. Then Dan Krassner, who heads a non-partisan outfit called Integrity Florida, demanded that Gov. Scott investigate his own agency and his own employees (see www.integrityflorida.org/EFIwaste-fulspending). As it turns out, neither conservatives nor liberals like whats happening in Gov. Scotts business-growing outfit. But theres more that wasnt reported by Mr. Buczyner or Mr. Krassner last week. In November, the governor gave Gray Swoope a 25 percent raise in pay and benefits, bringing his take to as much as $375,000.Some of it (a little of it) is covered by private donations, which come in part from companies whose representatives sit on the board of Enter-prise Florida. Is all this unethical?Not according to the governor, the EF staff or the companies taking your money. But heres the real answer in one word: yes.Meanwhile, when I looked through the records, I discovered that in my next life I need to return as a consultant. An outfit called Advanced Consulting Corp., for example, got the following 22 payments in 20 months, and let me list them for your amuse-ment, before I total them: $22,473.68. Followed by $410.70, $22,785.17, $900, $22,858.43, $22,890.14, $23,890.14, $23,121.92, $23,435.70, $23,435.70 ƒ well, this is tedious. The total: more than $306,700.What does ACC do?I have no idea. But heres what they claim.Advancement Consulting Corp. helps not-forprofit and business leaders develop vibrant and productive organizations that change the world.Ž Oh yeah? And what else?Develop a more effective fund-raising program or launch a major capital/endowment campaign. Recruit, mobilize and train a more effective board.Ž Apparently not.But yes, they take your money in large quantities. There are many more: North Star Destination Strategies, for example (I just picked these ran-domly from the 102-page report): theyll give your community a name, they claim (could it be better than the one you have already?). NSDS got $92,500, $66,250, $14,323, $1,405.43 and a payment of $41,250 in a 20-month period. Theres The Aerospace Alliance, which received two $25,000 payments a month apart; theres a $46,000 payout to Atlas Advertising, and a $176,727 payment last March to Bank of America, one of the wealthiest corporations and rated either the No. 1 and No. 2 bank in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Since they wont, let me thank you for your service „ in helping them get richer. There are two wire transfers of $50,000 and $75,000 to BAC Funding Corp., committed to the creation and long range development of a suc-cessful entrepreneur and business class in South Florida, to include Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties,Ž and almost half-a-million dollars ($486,000 or so) paid out to the Latin Chamber of Commerce in Miami. But thats small potatoes. There were payments totaling almost $1.5 million to Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Florida, whose representatives sit on the Enterprise Florida Board. Let me ask just one question of you, since youre paying for all this. Why? Why are we trying to create more jobs that bring more people who require more services and more taxpayer money when the state is already almost overwhelmed? We rank near the bottom of the 50 states in education spending. That shows in our education quality. We have a million uninsured people who go to the emergency room for treatment when its too late to do it cheaply, and the Republican-led state House of Representatives has turned down $51 bil-lion in money taxpayers have already provided to care for them, because its coming back to us from the federal government. Is growth „ both the concept and the word „ sacrosanct? Well, you decide. Q u o N t a roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches will put its $100,000 Equestrian Winter Festival winnings to use by hiring staff members to head its growing Chil-drens Services program. Thirty-five other organizations have similar stories following the FTI Consult-ing-sponsored sporting event that raised more than $2.2 million for their causes. Its the luck of the draw, of course, but the feedback back has been overwhelm-ingly positive,Ž Great Charity Challenge Executive Director Anne-Caroline Valtin said. Just hearing how the money won impacts them is amazing.Ž This years Equestrian Winter Festival … a Wellington mainstay that gallops into the villavge at the beginning of January and wraps up at the end of March … cele-brates the fifth installment of a fundraising program that matches teams with chari-ties. Once matched, riders hit the obstacle course at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center not only to compete but also to raise money. It costs $25,000 to form a team. Its been beyond inspiring to see these families step up to the plate,Ž Ms. Valtin said. Its funny when they see [Equestri-an Sport Productions managing partner] Mark [Bellissimo] and me coming toward them. Theyre like, Whoa, we know whats coming. At the end of the day, theyre more than willing to participate.Ž Bellissimo founded the Great Charity Challenge in 2010, with daughter Paige, raising a respectable $400,000. The 2015 goal: $3 million. Its grown beyond what we expected,Ž Ms. Valtin said. I think that equestrian families … they come here for a few months per year, but more and more of them are actually calling this home … really want to help the community. Wellington is kind of thought of as being in a bubble sometimes, but there are so many people that need help right outside the back door.Ž Speak Up! for Kids supports the Guardian ad Litem Program for the 15th Judicial Circuit. In 2013, it gave $160,000 to court appointees representing the best interests of neglected children. This award essentially doubled our annual budget last year,Ž said Lynne Brown, president of the board of directors. The funding will be used to effect change for the children in dependencyƒ. We will also use a portion of the funding to build infrastructure to solidify our growth and further support for the future.Ž The West Palm Beach-based charity took home this years top prize because of the on-course skill of its matched team: Olympian Ian Millar and amateur rid-ers Emily Kinch and Kelly Soleau. Other award amounts ranged from $125,000 to $15,000, as well as $175,000 in grant money for 19 additional charities and Little Leagues teams. FTI Consulting also sponsored a $50,000 Online Voting Challenge two weeks prior to the Feb. 1 Great Charity Challenge. Supporters of the charities cast virtual votes for their favorites, and the top three winners received donations. Big Dog Ranch Rescue came in first place with $25,000, Horse Healing Therapy Center came in second place with $12,500, and third place, also $12,500, went to Danny and Rons Rescue. In addition, eight donors made on-thespot contributions of $25,000 each for anti-bullying efforts. A $100,000 commit-ment from the Great Charity Challenge launched a $300,000 initiative that will tackle the epidemic. The two-hour event lived up to its theme Giving Inspires Giving.Ž The money received will have a huge impact on the Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches,Ž said Mary Allen, director of vision services for the char-ity, also based in West Palm Beach. Last year, the board of directors approved that we hire staff for our Childrens Services even though it was not budgeted. We took a leap of faith, planned strategies to raise the money needed to pay for the program, so wining this money was such a blessing.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTO Teammates Hannah Patten, Amy Momrow and Francesca Eremeeva pose with children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.

In between, Adam and Jennifer Gottlieb of Lake Worth will share their story about Cole, their 4-year-old son, and their experiences with Easter Seals Florida.They tell about their journey with Easter Seals,Ž said Marlo Massey, vice presi-dent of advancement for the West Palm Beach-based nonprofit. Its a reminder that this can happen to anybody.ŽEaster Seals Florida serves 116 children every day … and 4,000 every year … who have special needs or disabilities and require professional early interven-tion services. The local chapter caters to children up to age 5 in Palm Beach, Mar-tin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee counties. Sixteen teachers in eight classrooms work with the little enrollees to prepare them for their first day of school. Our goal is to get them kindergartenready so they require the least amount of extra intervention and care when they get there,Ž Ms. Massey said. We want to really help the families navigate through this and be able to have the least amount of stress.Ž Some of the children at Easter Seals have cerebral palsy or Down syndrome. Premature birth has affected others by causing developmental delays that eventually will disappear. We dont turn anybody away,Ž Ms. Massey said. The cost per child for Easter Seals Floridas services: $18,000. Funds raised at A Pair to RememberŽ will offset that cost and help put other toddlers on the path to independence despite their emotional or physical conditions. Its going to be a fabulous girls night out with lots of special surprises, cel-ebrating the amazing journey that this event has had, and all the success and hope its given the families in the com-munity,Ž Ms. Massey said. The three-hour couture and culinary mashup … it runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. … turns 10 this year and will ring in the milestone with Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue department stores. Designs by Edward Beiner, Tory Burch, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Eileen Fisher, and Lilly Pulitzer will outfit a runway-ready cast in the newest apparel lines. And who knows whether one of Palm Beach Countys celebrity residents will make an appearance?One year, Venus [Williams] came and bought up every single auction item she could,Ž Ms. Massey said. It was hilarious.ŽA committee of 26 volunteers has worked for months planning A Pair to Remember. From the first pop of the cork to the Dirty Martini after-party, their efforts have paid off, as several of those sipping and savoring to support Easter Seals Florida have attended each of the nine prior fundraisers. Once they meet the kids and the families, its one of those things thats so endearing,Ž Ms. Massey said. They just find that connection, and they stay on board with us.Ž Since A Pair to RememberŽ and its predecessor, Tiptoe Through the Tulips,Ž relocated from the clubhouses of gated communities, it has gained pop-ularity and now demands a VIP section. For $300 … general admission tickets cost $150 … guests can sit at a front row table set with plates of chocolate-cov-ered strawberries and a bottle of bubbly. The Gardens Mall really goes above and beyond in helping support the event,Ž Ms. Massey said. Easter Seals Florida secured a spot in January as one of the malls 25 Years of GivingŽ charitable partners.

AND, WE ALL KNOW IT! Sixteen-year-old Jared quickly deleted the text, but the words were indelibly etched in his mind. He wished Billy and the others would just leave him alone. For the past few weeks, Billy and his group were viciously harassing Jared via FACEBOOK postings, and horrible texts. Jared wasnt even sure why they were targeting him in the first place. Jared was miserable. He couldnt sleep at all. He knew he was losing weight, and had been finding excuses to come home right after school. He was too embarrassed to tell his parents what was going on. And besides, what could they even do? The last thing he wanted was for his parents to make a scene at the school. Its incredibly difficult for us, as parents, to compre-hend the pressures our chil-dren face as they navigate an increasingly more complex social and cyber world. Tech-nology continues to change, even as we speak, and does so at breakneck speed. Even the most savvy of us may feel totally out of our league. We have so many unanswered questions, and are not always certain about the pros and cons of offering our children access to the sophis-ticated technology the major-ity of their peers are devouring. Social media can certainly offer many benefits to our young people. Young folks have an opportunity to nurture new relationships. For those who are shy or socially awkward, they now have a medium that allows them to try to reach out socially, in a manner that might be more comfortable. However, it is incumbent upon us, as adults, to help our children learn safe and responsible behavior, and to gain awareness of the many dangers they potentially face. Young people often do not have the maturity to think ahead and anticipate the consequences of Internet pranks and disclosure. Many teens reference their sexual behavior and substance use online, and are not sufficiently mindful of the likelihood their disclosures could be forwarded virally. At all times, we should familiarize ourselves with our childs usage of technology, and supervise this activity. Many young people become so preoc-cupied with staying current with their friends activities on the Internet they may neglect studies and other respon-sibilities. We have the right to increase technology privileges ONLY when our children demonstrate theyre responsi-ble enough to use technology safely and appropriately (and only after academic and personal responsibilities have been diligently completed.) We certainly want our children to believe they can trust us so theyll con-fide when theyre struggling. We must therefore communicate that theyll have our unwavering support--even if there are issues we disagree about, and will address appropriately, at the right time. We have to squelch every inclination to screech hysterically You should know better! I knew I should never have bought you an iPhone?Ž Rather, we would like them to know we will face the immediate situations together, and deal with consequences (and lectures) later on. We can encourage our children to reach for their inner strengths to come up with reasonable strategies to face these challenges head on, letting them know well be there for emotional sup-port and collaboration, at each step. There are different scenarios that can be called upon if there is no resolution, including contacting other parents or school authorities (but each step carries its benefits and drawbacks, so some thought is necessary.) Dr. Eugene Beresin and his colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital have launched the Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds, a center devoted to educating parents and other caregivers about the mental health needs of young people struggling with behavioral, emo-tional and/or learning difficulties. At the cornerstone of the Clay Center is an interactive website: Common Sense Media: www.commonsensemedia.org. Anther good site is Parental Media Guide: www.parentalguide.org Maintaining an ongoing perspective on the pressures that teens and pre-teens face should hopefully help us anticipate the landmines in their paths. Hopefully, arming ourselves with these insights, (and, of course, some luck) may enable us to stay at least a step ahead of our tech savvy offspring.

One of the most heart breaking experiences any one can have is to watch a loved one gradually fade from reality into the abyss of confusion, with loss of time, place, and recognition of family. It can begin with the simple repetition of questions and progress to uncontrolled outbursts, forgetfulness, and hallucination. Presently there are studies being conducted by several neurologists to either find a cure or at least slow down the progression of the disease process. To slow down the deterioration of the brain, there is new evidence on the importance of being able to hear! A recent study by Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute on Aging shows that people with hearing loss have a higher rate of brain loss than those with normal hearing. 30% of people over 65 have a hearing loss and 14% of people between 45 and 64 have a hearing loss as well. BUT, the study conducted over a 10 year period showed those patients with an early hearing loss had a higher rate of brain loss than those who developed a loss later in life as shown on MRI’s of the brain. In fact, diminished hearing resulted in an additional cubic centimeter of brain tissue loss each year compared to those with normal hearing. What to do? First, get a baseline audiogram in your forties. Second, if you or a loved one has a hearing loss encourage them to get hearing aids. It sounds overly simple but the old adage, “use it or lose it applies”. If you are worried about a loved one developing dementia, one of the steps you can take is an ENT exam to check the ears followed by a hearing test.

Ajmo D.D.S., P.A., Cosmetic, Restorative & Implant Dentistry Board Certi“ ed IV Sedation ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: What is an immediate denture? Answer: An immediate denture is the first denture that should be planned prior to removing any teeth. As the name implies, this denture is given immediately after your teeth have been removed, and will transition the patient through the healing phase. This denture should fit comfortably and be cosmetically correct. The main goal of an immediate denture is to allow you to have teeth while your gums heal. To make a proper-fitting denture requires time, skill and artistry from the practitioner as well as the laboratory. There are several facial measurements that must be considered in order to create a comfortably-fitting, natural-looking denture. Your immediate denture should not be your final denture. There are too many changes in your facial dynamics from the time your teeth are extracted until your gums are completely healed. In order to incorporate all these changes, it requires the construction of a second or “final” denture to correct them all. When a final denture is made, your immediate denture can be modified to act as a “spare,” in the event that your final denture should become lost or needs to be repaired. If you want to have a natural-looking smile and the best comfortable fit, a denture that is create to your own unique specifications is the way to go.Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

But if you find it challenging to provide an environment of healthy eating habits, diverse stress management strategies and positive reinforcement as part of a daily routine, then you just might be contributing to the very things you dont want for your child „ disease and low self-esteem. Childhood obesity rates and obesityrelated illnesses are skyrocketing in all parts of the U.S. Obesity is determined by measuring your childs weight against his or her height, age and body fat percentage. If a child is overweight, the assistance of a physician-directed weight-management program may be recommended. Diet-ing and exercise should never be forced upon a child, yet parents often resort to these measures out of desperation and concern for their overweight children. Such programs usually fail and are often harmful to the childs mental and physi-cal well-being. The Adolescent Weight Loss Program at Palm Beach Childrens Hos-pital specializes in the treatment of obesity and related health conditions using an engagement program geared toward progressive behavioral changes that transform the eating and stress management strategies of children and families. This helps the child to lose weight while breaking harmful habits and creating healthy ones, setting them up for lifelong physical and emotional well-being. For some adolescents who are morbidly obese, bariatric surgery may be included as part of the care strategy. The hospitals talented bariatric team provides compassionate care to enhance the quality of life of patients through both surgical and non-surgical weight management. The Adolescent Weight Loss Program is supervised by Dr. Rob-ert Cywes, M.D. Ph.D., a pediatric and bariatric surgeon with a highly trained multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals. Together, they provide patients with safe and effective weight loss surgery as well as non-surgical options, comprehensive pre and post education and ongoing aftercare. An overweight or obese child is one who primarily selects food and drinks for their pleasure value rather than nutri-tional value. This is harmful to the childs physical growth and development and prevents them from developing healthy emotion-management strategies, which may result in obesity, illness and poor self-esteem. The goal of the program is to help children and families learn to eat for the nutritional value of food, lead-ing to healthy growth and development physically and emotionally. Weight loss surgery may help kids lose weight, but the programs focus is on the behavioral changes required to prevent subsequent weight regain. The program uses sub-stance abuse treatment strategies rather than diet and exercise protocols. The following tips may help in creating a healthy family lifestyle: Q Set a good example by preparing and eating meals designed to provide nutrition and satisfy hunger. Follow your childrens hunger cues. If kids are satisfied, dont make them continue eating. This will reinforce the idea that they should only eat when they are hungry. Q Dont buy carbohydrate-rich junk food. You never have to say no if the wrong foods are not available in the house. Also, dont use sweets or treats as a reward for good behavior or as a way to stop bad behavior. Q Use physical activity as an opportunity to spend pleasurable time with your child. It does not matter what the activity is nor how strenuous, as long as it is fun! Q Develop enjoyable activities such as art, reading, games and music where the return on the investment of effort is a wonderful sense of well-being. Q Judge the value of an activity by the fun enjoyed, not by the result achieved. Q In the modern era, it is ludicrous to excessively restrict TV, cell phone and computer time. These tools have become necessities and are great resources for pleasure and learning, but dont allow eating while in front of the screen. Q Engage your child in your daily choices and the rules you apply to them. If they participate in the deci-sion, theyre more likely to follow the rule. It is impossible to be obese and healthy. Even young children are at higher risk for sleeping disorders, high cholesterol, asthma and diabetes. Most obese children become obese adults; children typically do not grow out of their obesity.Ž In addition, being obese places your child in a position to be isolated by certain peers at school or to be the brunt of many fat jokes.Ž This can further lower self-esteem, and low self-esteem may contribute further to increased levels of obesity. You can help build up your childs self-esteem by: Q Watching what you say. Praise children not only for their successes but for their efforts in trying. Reward completion, regardles s of outcome. Q Being a positive role model. What you do and believe about yourself, your child will oftentimes mirror. Q Identifying and redirecting your childs inaccurate beliefs. Q Giving positive accurate feedback. Acknowledge their feelings, reward their effort and encourage them to make the right choices again next time. Q Being spontaneous and affectionate. Give praise, encouragement and hugs often. And be sincere. A child can tell if youre faking it. Q Creating a safe, nurturing home. Q Helping your child become involved in activities that emphasize coopera-tion instead of competition. Men-toring programs are good tools for building self-esteem. Controlling and preventing obesity is possible, yet it requires action and posi-tive role modeling. Talk to your doc-tor for more information on obesity or for suggestions on preparing nutritious meals and alternative ways to build your childs self-esteem. At the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital we understand that each patient is unique. Contact us at 561-841-KIDS to learn more.

The Honda attracted 193,052 confirmed spectators to PGA Nation-al Resort & Spa between Tuesdays practice round and Sundays dramat-ic finish that saw rising second-year pro Russell Henley prevail in a four-man playoff over Rory McIlroy, Ryan Palmer and Russell Knox, the state-ment said. The total marks a 14.3 percent increase over 2013, when 168,900 attended the tournament. The atten-dance was 161,700 in 2012, 111,950 in 2011 and 101,200 in 2010. That was a phenomenal tournament and an even greater response from the local community,Ž said Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R. Kennerly, in the statement. So much time and effort from our tournament team and partners has gone into building this over an eight-year period and it just is very gratifying to see the players respond by scheduling the The Honda Clas-sic, the sponsors excited about sup-porting the event and then the fans of Palm Beach County, the Treasure Coast and surrounding areas come out and enjoy the tournament. We are reaching people whether they are serious golf fans or not, whether they are adults or kids. Ser-gio Garcia tweeted Saturday about how great it was to see so many young fans in attendance. We have aspired to create an event that caters to families and people who just like to come out and have a good time. There is something for everybody at The Honda Classic and that is why I think our numbers continue to rise each year along with the continued escalation in support from the best players in the world. We couldnt be more excited about the tournament we just had or about the future.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTO Crowds fill Nicklaus Village at the 18th hole of the Honda Classic at PGA National.

HIGH SCHOOL JAZZ BAND REVIEW STRING THEORY ON THE ROXX THE SH-BOOMS Alexander and Renate Dreyfoos give $1 million to Max Planck Florida SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Max Planck Florida Foundation announced a gift of $1 million from Alex-ander and Renate Dreyfoos. The foundation supports the programming and operations of Jupiter-based Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, the first and only Max Planck Institute in the United States, the foundation said in a prepared statement. The Max Planck Society maintains over 80 state-of-the-art institutes and research facilities world-wide, with locations in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Our work is focused on advancing the worlds understanding of how the brain works,Ž said MPFI CEO and Scien-tific Director, Dr. David Fitzpatrick, in the statement, providing a foundation for the development of treatments and cures for brain disorders ranging from Parkin-sons to epilepsy. Mr. Dreyfoos continues to be one of our most vocal champions for neuroscience research.Ž Mr. Dreyfoos is an entrepreneur, inventor and philanthropist living in West Palm Beach. After graduating from MIT, he served in the U.S. Air Force in Germany, managing a photo reconnaissance labo-ratory. He earned an MBA degree from Harvard Business School. In 1963 Mr. Dreyfoos founded Photo Electronics Corporation, where he invent-ed the Video Color Negative Analyzer (VCNA), marketed worldwide by Kodak and now part of a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution. A motion picture version of the VCNA earned his company an Academy Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Mr. Dreyfoos holds 10 U.S. patents and is a lifetime trustee of the MIT Corporation. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Mr. Dreyfoos is well known for his leadership role in establishing the Cul-tural Council of Palm Beach County and the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. His contribution to the Dreyfoos School of the Arts, ranked by U.S. World and News Reports as one of the nations best high schools, was the largest private donation ever made to a public school in Florida. Mr. Dreyfoos owned WPEC TV-12 from 1973 to 1996. Renate and I consider it an honor and a responsibility to support MPFI and its world-renowned scientists, who are liter-ally advancing the worlds knowledge of neuroscience every day,Ž he said in the statement. The instit utes pr esence here puts Palm Beach County on the global map of scientific achievement, which is dear to my heart and interests. Max Planck is important to our economy and educational resources, but most impor-tantly it is moving us closer to cures for Alzheimers, autism, Parkinsons and other diseases of the brain. What could be more important than that?Ž In honor of the Dreyfooss gift, MPFI will designate its central atrium at the research institute as the Alexander and Renate Dreyfoos Atrium. The nonprofit Max Planck Florida Foundation supports the instit utes scientific research as well as its educational programs by attaining private philan-thropic support from individuals, cor-porations, and foundations across the United States.

On March 6, internationally acclaimed artist Ella van Poucke will pluck away brilliantly at the cello dur-ing a chamber-music concert, and guest speaker Dr. Moritz Helmstaedter will engage in an electron-infused discussion titled Map-ping the Brains Net-works.Ž It seemed possible „ a good combi-nation and a logical one „ to combine studies on the brain and neuroscience, or science in gen-eral, together with classical music, in this case chamber music,Ž said Axel Langhorst, president and CEO of the American Friends group. We all felt that this could be something of great interest and could get some resonance with the public and could be woven into the lecture series.Ž The first three lectures exceeded all expectations, as each ended up over-booked, Mr. Lang-horst said. We felt that the musical element probably would add to the effort „ something that people would take to,Ž he said. So far, it seems like the results have been quite positive.Ž The upcoming lecture has more than 250 RSVPs for a venue that can seat 150 „ the Max Planck atrium. The sharp sounds emanating from the scholarly stage come from young solo-ists attending the worlds preeminent string academy. It is a performance at world-class levels, which is very special,Ž Mr. Langhorst said. The young musicians coming out of there are the future stars of the music scene. Its a very fortu-nate situation to have it here in Palm Beach County.Ž It was an adventure in the beginning, mainly because of the location,Ž said Matthias Haury, chief operating officer of the institute. It turned out to be a fantastic venue. The audi-ence was stunned. The acoustics were really good.Ž The joint venture between the two distinguished organizations marks the first public-outreach event in the Unit-ed States by the academy. The model for the series comes from Munich, Germany, where scientists from the Max Planck Society have sat inŽ with the Bavarian State Opera for more than a decade to share curriculum with culture. It shows that theres a very strong interest in the general population to learn about the brain and to learn about music,Ž Haury said. Thats a fantastic development here in the community.Ž The goal of the series serves to share insights about the inner work-ings of the brain „ the bodys most important and least understood organ. The main idea for us is to give something back to the general public,Ž Dr. Haury said. We are now engaged in working together with schools, in working together with the general public, to show how important science is for the future of mankind.Ž Palm Beach County cultural champion Alexander Dreyfoos, a member of the instit utes bo ard of directors, has seen two of the three lec-tures and plans to attend the fourth. I think its very important that the community understand what great sci-ence is going on in Palm Beach County now, and if its the music that brings people out, I think thats terrific,Ž Mr. Dreyfoos said. The founder of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, the impetus behind the development of the Kravis Center and a benefactor of the School of the Arts in West Palm Beach that bears his name said the fields of art and science remain inseparable. One of the nicest compliments that I ever had in my life was when (former Scripps Research Institute President) Richard Lerner told me that Scripps would not have come to Palm Beach County if there hadnt been a perform-ing-arts center like the Kravis Center,Ž Mr. Dreyfoos said. And so it goes that Max Planck wouldnt be here if the Kravis Center wasnt here.Ž Bach and the brain have more in common than society previously might have thought. It turns out that people who are bright in science often have a very strong musical ability, and, quite typi-cally, that ability appears earlier than does the scientific background,Ž Mr. Dreyfoos said. Einstein was report-ed saying many times in his life, A day without music was an incomplete day.Ž Q BY AMY WOODSSpecial to Florida Weekly COURTESY PHOTO Cellist Ella van Poucke HELMSTAEDTER HAURY DREYFOOS

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhen the star power of polo icon Ignacio NachoŽ Figueras, and Americas Most WantedŽ host John Walsh partnered as the honorary event chairs for the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington, the tables went quick-ly for the March 9 event. Titled the Great Futures Brunch at Polo,Ž the fundraiser, hosted by the International Polo Club on the Mallet Grille patio over-looking the Championship Field, is expected to make a sizable impact in raising the dollars needed for 150 children to attend camp this summer. Sunday, March 9, is Boys & Girls Club Day at IPC,Ž said John Wash, president of the International Polo Club, in a prepared statement. Both Nacho Figueras and John Walsh have played polo at IPC many times, and their fundraising appeal to our mem-bers and guests will help make these childrens dreams of attending sum-mer camp a reality.Ž Working dual-income parents and single parents struggle with the cost of sending their children to summer camp, knowing that leaving them unattended is not a safe alternative. The Boys & Girls Club emphasizes educational, vocational, social, rec-reational, leadership, and charac-ter-building skills, while providing trained adult supervision. Nacho Figueras and his wife, Delfina, have four children, and family is of paramount importance to them. Mr. Figueras said, Helping others is a big part of my life.Ž Mr. Figueras is well known for participating in charitable polo events that bene-fit children. The annual polo event for the Robin Hood Foundation that funds over 200 charities in New York was his brainchild. He also plays polo alongside Prince Harry to raise funds for Sentebale, the charity that directs aid to the 400,000 orphans and vul-nerable children in Lesotho. Americas Most WantedŽ host John Walsh and his wife, Reve, also have four children, including their son Adam, who was killed after being abducted from a suburban mall. His commitment to bringing fugitive criminals to justice is legendary, and he co-founded the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Mr. Walsh proudly calls the game of polo his sportŽ and is a regular at the International Polo Club. He com-petes worldwide and often combines his two passions by hosting benefits that help children. We expect 175 sponsors and guests to join us for a spectacular culinary experience, followed by the open-ing match of the Piaget Gold Cup,Ž said Ray Mooney, IPCs director of facilities, and a board member of the Wellington Boys & Girls Club, in the statement. However, to ensure that our coffers dont fall short of our goal to send all 150 children to camp,Ž continued Mooney, we will give our members, and guests attending polo, an opportunity to donate funds even if they are not attending the Great Futures Brunch.Ž Tickets for Sunday Polo and Brunch or lawn seats can be purchased at InternationalPoloClub.com.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 A29 In the aftermath of the massive holiday data breach that effected Target and a number of other major retail-ers, consumers are now faced with yet another reason to be concerned about the safety of their credit cards. Reports are surfacing that consumers are finding unauthorized charges of $9.84 on their statements. The business that levied the charge claims that the fee is for customer supportŽ and it may appear on the statement as one of many different websites. It appears their plan is to fly under the radar when they hit individual accounts. These individuals are banking on the fact that there is a good chance consumers are not going to notice these small charges,Ž Karen Nalven, president of the Better Business Bureau serving West Florida, said in a prepared statement. This small charge scam has been around for many years. It is important consumers take their time and review all credit card statements thoroughly.Ž Victims of this fraud report that, when theyve accessed the website list-ed on their statement, they were given a customer support phone number and email address. After calling the number, they were told that the charge would be removed. However, the only way that consumers can be certain that they have taken positive steps to protect themselves is to contact their card issuer regarding the suspected fraud and follow their recommendations. How to reduce your risk of credit card fraud € Report lost cards and incorrect charges promptly. In the United States and Canada if your credit card is lost, stolen, or used without your permission, you may be responsible for up to $50. If you report the loss before the card is used, youre not responsible for any unauthorized charges. In addi-tion, many cardholders are protected by zero liability policies set in place by credit card companies. € Request a new card if you notice unauthorized charges. Fraudulent charges mean your card information has been compromised. Be on the safe side and request a new card. € Never lend your card. And dont leave your cards, statements and receipts laying around your home, car or office. € Never sign a blank charge slip. Draw lines through blank spaces on charge slips above the total so the amount cant be changed. € Use caution when ordering online or over the phone. Always be cautious about disclosing your account number on the telephone or online unless you know the person youre dealing with represents a reputable company. For more than 100 years, Better Business Bureau has been helping consum-ers find businesses, brands and chari-ties they can trust. In 2012, consumers turned to BBB 124 million times for Business Reviews on more than 4.5 million companies and Charity Reports on 11,000 charities, all available for free at bbb.org.

Is this true? According to the Cato Institute, the size of the U.S. federal budget has grown from $1.9 trillion in 2001 to $3.7 trillion in 2013. The biggest increase during that time was from 2008 to 2009; the spend-ing increase was largely in response to the economic contraction associated with the great recession. Unfortunately, the increase in spending to spur the economy has turned out to be ongoing spending and not a one time splurge to jump start the economy. As for government sectors receiving funds, the largest amount of federal money spent is: to Social Security (22 percent); Defense (18 percent); Medi-care (14 percent); Medicaid (7 percent); and interest (6 percent.) The balance of all otherŽ spending is 33 percent but none of the all otherŽ sub-components individually exceed 6 percent. What scares many taxpaying citizens is the runaway growth in entitlement spending. As the second chart shows, there has been rapid growth in enti-tlement spending compared to down trending in defense and non-defense discretionary spend-ing. (And there is more defense downsizing on the horizon.) There is value to a growing GDP far beyond the employ-ment opportunities it brings to our citizenry. A GDP growing faster than the growth in the U.S. budget allows a growing tax base to pay for larger government. Per projections by the Cato Institute, the 2000 budget was 18 percent of GDP; the 2010 budget was 24 percent. But brace yourselves for 2030 and 2040. They come in at 32 percent and 37 percent, respectively. What kind of tax rate will that imply for our next generation? Here is a closer financial snapshot of several (but not all) federal agencies according to www.Downsizinggovernment.org: € The Department of Agriculture will spend $156 billion in 2013, or $1,300 per household; operates about 240 subsidy programs; and employs 93,000 workers in about 7,000 offices across the country. € The Department of Defense will spend about $633 billion in fiscal 2013, or $5,200 per household; employs 1.5 million uniformed employees and about 780,000 civilian employees. € The Department of Education will spend about $48 billion in 2013, or $400 per household; employs 4,300 workers; and operates 153 different subsidy programs. € The Department of Health and Human Services will spend $908 billion in 2013 (Medicare totals $504 billion and Medicaid totals $266 billion), or $7,500 per household; employs 70,000 workers. € The Department of Social Security Administration will spend $873 bil-lion in 2013, or $7,300 per household in the nation. Some of the federal budget expenses have increased due to a growing num-ber of federal staff and hefty compensa-tion and benefits packages. According to Cato, the average U.S. federal govern-ment employee makes $14,632 more in direct cash income than his or her pri-vate sector counterparts (i.e., at $74,436 in federal government versus $59,804 in the private sector. The extremely gener-ous benefits given to federal employees boosts their real income by $26,632, putting total average federal employee compensation at $114,436 versus the pri-vate sectors average at $87,804.) Unless the federal governments size is limited financially, the next genera-tions will face huge tax burdens and loss of their benefits under a variety of social programs. Another argument against the federal governments growth is that it crowds out capitalism and squelches private enterprises function and spirit. By the way, who is capable of managing annual expenditures of some $15 trillion annually? For those not paying taxes, the scope and size of federal government is not worrisome. For those paying escalating tax bills, it is a constant concern. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Every year, they have a luncheon at Abacoa, almost always with a guest speaker. This years featured guest will be Val-erie Ramsey, a resident of PGA Nation-al and renowned author, model and motivational speaker. Ms. Ramseys web site … valerieramsey.com … high-lights her accomplishments and her new book. In a prepared statement, the group notes that: Valerie Ramsey is a firm believer that life is an adventure we create for ourselves and that we are never too old to have a new dream or to celebrate a new success. She has lived her life in direct contrast to most peoples by transitioning from being a stay-at-home wife and mother (she is the mother of six) to a public rela-tions career with the famed Pebble Beach Resorts in her 50s, to a modeling career, author and speaker in her 60s. Since her 50s, her life has continued to open up and flourish in ways she never would have dreamed possible.Ž Ms. Ramsey is the author of two books: Gracefully … Looking & Being Your Best at Any Age,Ž and her newest book, Creating Whats Next … Grace-fully,Ž both co-written with Heather Hummel. In her books and speeches, Ms. Ramsey shares a lifetime of thoughts on transitioning through lifes stages. Using examples from her per-sonal experiences in the PR and mod-eling worlds, with behind-the-scenes stories, she shares her secrets for over-coming challenges and winning in the second half of life … and suggests how others can do the same. Ms. Ramsey is with Wilhelmina Models in New York and Miami, Mas-ters Models Silver in Paris and the Ben Barry Agency in Toronto. She is on the national speakers circuit with Premiere Speakers Bureau. All proceeds from the luncheon go to the scholarship fund for full-time female collegians in their junior or senior year at a four-year college or university. Each must be a citizen of the United States, have a 3.0 grade point average and show financial need in order to qualify. In the past, at least $10,000 has been raised for the schol-arship fund. This years Scholarship Benefit Fundraiser Luncheon will be decorated with cherry blossoms Japanese flower centerpieces, befitting its Asian theme. The event will be held on March. 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter. The cost is $50, paid in advance. The luncheon also will raffle off a Japanese wedding kimono that comes with a stand, along with some other Japanese items. Gift baskets will be available with area restaurant cer-tificates.

Building on the excitement of the movie, which premieres in theaters March 14, this Mustang will be offered at no reserve, with proceeds benefiting the Henry Ford Health System, a not-for-profit group founded by Henry Ford to improve the health and well-being of a diverse community. Beyond the South Florida Fairgrounds auction stage, Ford will offer ride-and-drive and hot-lap experiences. The pub-lic can sample Fords stable of 2014 vehicles, as well as hot-lap experiences in the Shelby GT500, Focus ST and Fiesta ST. In addition, Ford is showing the all-new 2015 Mustang and 2015 F-150 in South Florida for the first time. For auction information, visit the Barrett-Jackson website or Facebook. Need for SpeedŽ is the latest of more than 3,200 film and television appear-ances for Mustang during the past 50 years. The Mustang being auctioned is one of a handful developed purely for the movie to appear on the silver screen and at promotional stops. The movie car boasts a customdesigned wide body rolling on unique Forgiato 22-inch alloy wheels. Other design elements include an enlarged lower grille with new air intakes, extended rocker panels, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. The visu-al sizzle is amplified by custom silver paint with Kona blue racing stripes and angel-eye fog lamps in the grille. Mustang was cast in a leading role of the movie with screen time equal to many of the actors,Ž said Steve Ling, North America car marketing man-ager for Ford. Director Scott Waugh challenged our team to give this cen-tral character enough personality and American masculinity to take on some of the worlds most exotic cars, just like in the popular Electronic Arts video game that inspired the movie. The new owner of this particular Mustang will take home a rare vehicle, and their bid will increase access to critical health care services.Ž Founded in 1915, the Henry Ford Health System is one of the nations leading com-prehensive, integrated health systems. It provides health insurance and health-care delivery, including acute-, specialty-, primaryand preventive-care services, backed by excellence in research and edu-cation. Additional information is available at http://www.henryford.com. Need for SpeedŽ is one of the most successful racing video game franchises in the world, with more than 140 million games sold since the original edition debuted 20 years ago. The Dreamworks Studios film stars Aaron Paul (Break-ing BadŽ), Dominic Cooper (Captain AmericaŽ), Imogen Poots (Fright NightŽ) and Michael Keaton (Bat-manŽ), and is directed by Mr. Waugh (Act of ValorŽ).

KOVEL: ANTIQUESLook for emblems of quality on cameo glass BY KIM AND TERRY KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyCameo glass is popular with collectors. Galle, Thomas Webb, Mt. Washington and Daum are well known, but some smaller companies that worked at the same time are almost unknown. Burgun, Schverer & Cie (son) was founded in 1711 in Meisenthal, France. The company always made top-qual-ity glass and survived by changing methods and designs to attract new customers. It made blown glass, watch glass, eyeglass lenses and tableware. By the 1860s, it was famous for its understanding of glass-making. Emile Galle was an apprentice there before he left for his fathers company, and the two companies had a working arrangement for about 10 years. In 1895 Burgun, Schverer & Cie produced cameo glass by the new and less expensive method of painting layers of colored and clear glass and then carving them. It also made other art glass, including enameled and gilt vases, often with silver mounts. Burgun, Schverer & Cie won many awards for its glass, and in 1901 it became a public company. It is now called Verrerie de Meisenthal. Its glass has long been marked with a hard-to-understand emblem that includes the Cross of Lorraine, a thistle and the letters BS & C on a banner. Look for cameo glass by Burgun, Schverer & Cie. It may be overlooked by those with less information about the glasss quality and mark. Q: I have four bentwood chairs that came from an old seminary. Underneath the seats there is a label that reads J.S. Ford Johnson Co., New York, N.Y., 33 East 47th St., Chicago, Ill., San Francisco, Calif.Ž They were patented in March 1910 and are in good solid condition. Can you tell me something about the history? A: J.S. Ford Johnson Co. was founded in 1867 by John S. Ford and Henry W. Johnson. The company started out in Columbus, Ohio, moved to Indiana a year later and moved to Chicago in 1872. The company made Mission furniture, including some pieces similar to Stickley furniture. It was one of the largest manufacturers of chairs in the United States. The company went bankrupt in 1913 and was sold. Your set of bentwood chairs is worth about $600 if the chairs are in excellent condition.Q: Is a rectangular yellow planter marked Cookson 923Ž of any value? A: Gerald Cookson founded Cookson Pottery Co. in Roseville, Ohio, in 1945. Gar-den ware, planters, vases and florist ware were produced. Cooksons molds were made by Ungemach Pottery, another Roseville company, and the glazes were applied at Cookson Pottery. Cooksons son took over the business in 1966. The business was sold in 1982 but con-tinued to operate until 1995. Value of your planter: about $20. Q: I have a pewter stein marked F & MŽ over N.Ž Its 11 inches tall and has raised decora-tions of classical figures picking grapes from a vine. Can you tell me who made it and what its worth? A: The mark was used by Felsenstein & Mainzer, a pew-terer in Nuremberg, Germany. The company was founded by Simon Felsenstein and Sigmund Mainzer in 1886. Gebruder Bing bought the company in 1918 and made Felsenstein & Mainzer products until the 1930s. Felsen-stein & Mainzer steins have sold at auction recently for $85. Q: My Brownie Target Six-20 camera is in excellent condition, never used, with the original box it came in. The camera is metal and the front is black and white with vertical lines. Id like to find out how old it is and if film still is available. And how much is the camera worth? A: Eastman Kodak Co. made the Brownie Target Six-20 from Ju ly 1946 until May 1952. The front of your camera is known as the Art Deco face. The camera originally came with a roll of 620 film. The film was dis-continued in 1995, but rolls may be available from sources for out-of-production film. You can also use a roll of 120 film rewound onto a 620 spool, which is larger than a 120 spool. It takes two 620 spools to do this and must be done in a darkroom or darkbox so that no light touches the film. You can buy spare 620 spools online. The camera originally sold for $3.50. Today it sells online for $10-$25 without a box and $15-$40 with the original box. Q: When I was rehabbing our garage, which was built in about 1917, I found a large piece of colorful cardboard in the old insulation. It looks like it was an advertising sign or perhaps the side of a breakfast food box of some kind. Theres a childs face on it with the phrase Toddy builds health and strength.Ž Can you help identify the ad? Does it have any value? A: Toddy was a brand name for a meal in a glassŽ sold by a Buffalo, N.Y., company named Maltop, Inc. The milk-based drink, apparently meant for children, was heavily marketed in the eastern United States and Canada in the late 1920s, so your garage may not be quite as old as you think it is „ or it was insulated a decade after it was built. The drink was sold in cans in grocery stores. Your cardboard piece may have been the side of a carton that once held Toddy cans. The most common Toddy-related collect-ible is a mixer-style drinking glass embossed with the brand name and a childs face. The glasses sell for $10 to $20 online. Your ad would sell for only a few dollars. Why not frame it and hang it in your garage or kitchen as part of your houses history? Tip: Dont swim in a pool wearing jewelry. Chlorine makes it dull. If you are in the ocean, the glimmer of metal may attract unwanted fish. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Not only would it have a large living room, complete with views of the Caloosahatchee River, but it would have a Florida room. Old-timers will remember the space, which was ubiquitous on homes built in post-World War II Florida. Essentially, it was a flat-roof, 12by 15-foot room that was tacked onto the backs of the California ranch-style houses. Though she was from Indiana, Grandma had heard of the space, typically a room with three walls of windows to allow cross-ventilation in those days before air conditioning was a standard residential feature. And it is that room that nine South Florida designers reinterpreted for an exhibition, Interior Design: The Flor-ida Room,Ž is open through March 29 at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. The Florida room could trace its lineage to the sleeping porches many homes had in the early part of the century; its northern counterpart was the conservatory, an elegant glassed-in space that harkened back to the Victo-rian Age. But the midcentury Florida room?It used to be a hodgepodge of leftover furniture that was available,Ž said Joseph Pubillones, a Palm Beach design-er who guest-curated the exhibition. Now its a room of the house thats worthy of design.Ž Grandmas Florida room was a step above the usual hodgepodge.Grandma’s Florida room?

Frankino Charitable Foundatio n SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSFiling down my devil’s hornsIve spent my entire adult dating life playing it safe. I never approach men I like, I dont flirt with strangers until theyre already flirting with me, I cant even smile at a cute man across the room. I keep my own desires on a very tight leash. But Ive decided Im tired of playing coy. Men dont hide their intentions. Why should we? On a recent Saturday night, out of town for a conference, I wound up having dinner with a man Id met that day. He was my age, handsome, funny, and uber-masculine in the way I like. Dinner started out as a meal between colleagues, but after a glass of wine and some intimate table talk, it sud-denly felt like a date. Its like youre the angel to my devil,Ž my sort-of date said when I declined a second glass of wine. I laughed. Im no angel.ŽHe sat back and looked at me. Then you must have filed down your horns.Ž It was the point in a date when I typically dial it back, when all my nat-ural shyness rears up and I blush and stammer my way to a night alone. But I had already decided to shrug off my natural reserve, and so instead I tried amping up the innuendos and not-so-subtle flirting when my date suggested another round of drinks. I feel like Im corrupting you,Ž he said. Normally, I would have demurred, giggled and rolled my eyes. I would have pretended that I was, in fact, incorruptible. But instead, I looked him full in the face with my best take-me-back-to-your-room expression and said, Who says Im not already corrupted?Ž And that ended the evening. All the heat that was building between us suddenly cooled. My date paid the check, gave me a quick hug and dashed off to his room. Clearly, the harder I had tried the less interested he had become. But why? Not long after, I stumbled on a passage from Women Men L ove, W omen Men Leave,Ž a dating advice book first published in the late 80s that reads like a playbook for every relationship mistake Ive ever made. Traditionally, it was the womans role to put the brakes on sexually, to modulate the speed and intensity of the sexual involvement,Ž the book says. Since men could count on women to operate as a sort of governor, they could ignore their own misgivings and act aggressive, decisive and supremely confident. Womens growing ease with sexuality has changed all that.Ž And how.The authors, both male psychiatrists, gave an example of a woman, Sharon, who after several good but unconsummated dates suggested to her new boyfriend in very explicit terms that she wanted him to stay over. All of a sudden, what felt warm and romantic turned weird,Ž Sharon said. The boyfriend made an excuse, left and never called again. More than 20 years later, the book continues to make a good point: Even with all the progress toward equality between the sexes, even with all our leaning in, women are still expected to act sweet and innocent on a date. It turns out the role of devil was never ours to play. Q artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Consider this deal where West, apparently suffering from delusions of grandeur, chose a low spade as his opening lead. This might have worked out well had dummy had the K-J-x-x-x of spades and declarer, holding two low spades, played the jack from dummy. But this precise holding was extremely unlikely, and Wests under-lead of the ace should therefore be regarded at the very least as ove rly imaginative. In the actual case, declarer was greatly helped by the lead. When dum-mys queen of spades held the first trick, South was able to discard a heart from his hand and so avoid a potential heart loser. Declarer then led the eight of trumps from dummy. After East pro-duced the ten, South had to solve the problem of whether East had the Q-10 or A-10 of trumps „ the only holdings that would allow the slam to be made, provided South guessed correctly. In the former case, the jack would be the winning play; in the latter case, the king would be right. South found the winning play without much difficulty. He put up the king, caught Wests singleton queen and so made the slam. Declarers reasoning was simple enough. He concluded that although West might have been slightly off his rocker to have underled the ace of spades at trick one, he could hardly have been crazy enough to do it with two aces in his hand. It followed, therefore, that East had the ace of dia-monds, eliminating the apparent guess in the suit. Q

YesFor his final film, Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki has chosen the life story of aviation pioneer Jiro Horikoshi, who was the chief engi-neer of Japanese fighter planes during World War II. The choice could not be more fitting, as many of Mr. Miyazakis films (Spirited Away,Ž PonyoŽ) have included flying sequences, dreams and a mentor/protge relationship, all of which are on full dis-play here. The story, which Mr. Miyazaki wrote as well as directed, starts with Jiro as a boy in 1918 Japan. An open-ing sequence in which young Jiro dreams of flying airplanes informs us of his love for aircraft. An avia-tion magazine tells him of a prominent Italian aircraft manufacturer named Caproni (Stan-ley Tucci). Knowing hes too nearsighted to fly, Jiro (Joseph Gor-don-Levitt) aspires to follow in Mr. Capronis footsteps as an aeronautical engineer. Rather than follow a traditional narrative structure with rising action and a clear progression through Jiros jour-ney, Mr. Miyazaki focuses on major events in Jiros life, his dreams for suc-cess and his evolution as a designer. As a young man, he heroically rescues Kinu (Mae Whitman) and her little sister Nahoko (Emily Blunt) during an earthquake, but desires no credit for saving their lives. As Jiro ages, he, along with his boss Hattori (Mandy Patinkin) and good friend Honjo (John Krasinski), becomes immersed in an aerial development battle between Germany and Japan. The Depression, tuberculosis and Japans entry into WWII also greatly impact Jiros life, all to the backdrop of strict cultural rituals and professional pressure. As a result of the impetus on these events, the film doesnt gradually rise in tension and suspense as one might expect, but the series of adventures do go a long way toward forming Jiro as a person. Because he is idealistic and affable, were happy to root for his success. This is consistent, generally speaking, with classic Japanese film-making in that the focus is on charac-ters and emotions rather than plot. Those not familiar with Japanime will note the differences between Japa-nese and American animation styles. Whereas American animation attempts to be richly detailed and only exagger-ates to accentuate a characteristic (Mr. Incredibles heaving chest, for exam-ple), Japanime isnt nearly as detailed and uses muted colors. Japanese characters often have large, reflective eyes accompanied by small noses and mouths. Moreover, while most if not all American ani-mation is aimed at chil-dren, Japanime is tar-geted to both children and adults. Its not surprising, then, that the Motion Picture Association of America rated The Wind RisesŽ PG-13 (though a PG rating would be more appro-priate). This is not the first time Mr. Miyazaki has said hes working on his last film (Howls Moving CastleŽ in 2004 was supposed to be his last as well), but if this one is indeed his swan song, it ends his career on a solid note. The Wind RisesŽ isnt quite the trippy sur-real work of brilliance that some of his other films are „ and it couldnt be, given the subject matter „ but it is a moving and inspiring story thats nicely told.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 B13 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — 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.

BEACH READING‘The Splendour Falls’ By Susanna Kearsley(Sourcebooks Landmark, $16.99)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELL Even though it was his idea to have a holiday in France in the first place, Emily isnt sur-prised when her cousin isnt there to meet her at the train station. Henry has a reputation for being easily distracted, and she assumes hes off chasing the trail of his latest academic theory. In the meantime, she has plenty to do exploring the pic-turesque town of Chinon, from the imposing edifice of its namesake cas-tle to the winding streets and charm-ing plazas of the village below. Shes often in the com-pany of the motley crew staying at her hotel, a bohemian jumble of artists and tourists that includes a seriously sexy British violinist who sets off all her warning bells. Emily cant help but have romance on her mind, surrounded by the stories of the two tragic Isabelles of Chinon. Though separated by centuries „ one a medieval royal besieged by politi-cal enemies, the other a chambermaid during the Nazi occupation „ both women fell victim to lost loves and sad fates, and both are rumored to have hidden priceless trea-sures somewhere in the town. But as days go by with no word from Henry, Emily becomes more and more uneasy, espe-cially once she finds a cryptic clue that she believes to be a mes-sage from him. Then events take a tragic turn, and she real-izes shes unknow-ingly stumbled into a tangle of present-day passions that may have already put her in deadly danger. Originally published in England, this pleasantly atmo-spheric tale is being reissued in the States just in time for some serious curling-up-under-a-blanket winter escapism. Visions of sunlit ruins will enchant armchair travelers, and layers of ancient intrigue thrill history buffs; romantics will enjoy watching a cynic open her heart to l ove, and theres even a tinge of ghostly doings for fans of the gothic.

The author of Forgotten Tales of ChinaŽ paused during a recent book signing at Studio E Gallery in PGA Commons. The Jupiter resident with a sunny disposition has always had a taste for adventure, and has lived life her way. A self-professed literary late bloom-er, Ms. Smith grew up daydreaming of becoming a writer amidst a family of readers. Reading has always been an integral part of my life. Prior to getting married, we didnt own a television,Ž she said. We were the last American family to own one, and when it broke, my father refused to replace it. He insisted that television was turning our brains into mush because no one was reading.Ž After she graduated from college she and her husband lived in Boston where she raised their young children. After graduating with a second degree in computer science, she was recruited by IBM, as a computer programmer. It was 10 years later, after she had semiretired to Florida, that she began to write. I always knew that I could write. When I was in elementary school, I would daydream about characters and inventing elaborate plots. But it wasnt until my children were grown that the need to write fiction resurfaced, abrupt-ly, with the impact of a tsunami.Ž Fans of her first three books Dangerous Lies,Ž Exceeding Expectations,Ž and Paradise Misplaced,Ž have come to know her literary modus operan-di: strong, unforgettable characters, page-turning suspense, and a scientific approach on accuracy. In her latest novel, Forgotten Tales of China,Ž readers are taken on an epic journey of survival and sacrifice, lust and l ove, brav ery and betrayal, and indomitable perseverance. Q Lisa April SmithHometown: Long Island, N.Y. Current residence: Jupiter Age: I’m a kid at heart. What is the most rewarding part of being an author? “Meeting fans who have read my books and want to tell me what they loved, and ask when the next one will be available. That’s the high that keeps me going.” When you’re not writing, how do you like to relax? “I love traveling outside of the U.S. I also enjoy playing golf, gardening, and designing jewelry.” Who is your favorite literary heroine? “Scarlett O’Hara: vain, headstrong, stubborn, calculating, loyal, independent, and a feminist.” If you could spend an hour or two with any author, who would that be? “Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens). He was a brilliant author, and his characters were memorable, awed, and real.” What advice do you have for aspiring authors? “Keep your day job.”What projects are you working on? “I’ll be teaching a course on the contributions of ancient China at its zenith on May 8 and May 16 at the Mandel Jewish Community Center.” “Forgotten Tales of China” by Lisa April Smith

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B17talent, their luck, what happens in their lives and what happens to them.Ž Ms. Wolizters most recent novel, The InterestingsŽ ($27.95 Riverhead Books), looks at a small group of teens who befriend each other at a summer arts camp in the Berkshire Mountains. Theyre all talented in various ways: One is a dancer and one is studying animation. A couple are interested in acting, one wants to become an architect and another is a talented musician. The book follows their lives for 40 years or so, as they graduate college, attempt careers, suffer setbacks and struggle to discover who they are and what their place is in the world. What do they do with their talent? Do they make the most of it? Do they flounder about, or do they squander it? Writing The InterestingsŽ was a very big undertaking for me,Ž the artist says. I loved writing it more than everything. I was so involved in the characters lives ƒ It was tricky to manage all the storylines and the different years and decades ƒ but if you dont keep pushing yourself as a writer, no one else is going to push you.Ž Entertainment Weekly, Time and the Chicago Tribune named The InterestingsŽ a best book of the year (2013) and The New York Times Book Review and The Washington Post named it a Notable Book. Ms. Wolitzers recent novels include The Wife,Ž The Position,Ž The Ten-Year NapŽ and The Uncoupling.Ž She did attend an arts camp similar to the one she writes about in The Interest-ings,Ž she says, but she had never thought about writing about it before. It was a very wonderful summer for me,Ž she says, the summer when I kind of sparked to things in a new way. I thought about it so much over time, but not to write about it. When I got old enough, a lot of life had gone by „ Id had chil-dren, Id seen a lot of things happen „ it occurred to me that it would be a great way to set the compass, to move on from that kind of moment for a character.Ž The camp she attended was serious about the arts, she says, but she wasnt quite prepared to be serious at the begin-ning. I got that way over the course of the eight weeks or so „ more than I had ever been before.Ž She studied acting at the camp, though she says now she wasnt that good. But I really saw how you need to just work a lot if you want to do anything in the arts,Ž she says. And some kids really did that, even when they were young. I think most people understand that you really have to put a lot into it, of course. But there are different levels of talent. I talk about it in the book. Every kind of talent needs to be worked on and stoked. You want to grow as an artist, you want to change, you want to think that there are new and exciting possibilities.Ž In The Interestings,Ž Ms. Wolitzer writes, Talent is a slippery thing.Ž And then, a little later on, a character has an epiphany that more than pure talent is needed to be successful in ones artistic career: She understood that it had never just been about talent; it had also always been about money. Ethan was brilliant at what he did, and he might well have made it even if Ashs father hadnt encouraged and advised him, but it really helped that Ethan had grown up in a sophisti-cated city, and that he had married into a wealthy family. Ash was talented, but not all that talented. That was the thing that no one had said, not once. But of course, it was fortunate that Ash didnt have to worry about money while trying to think about art. Her wealthy childhood had given her a head start, and now Ethan had picked up where her childhood had left off ƒ Ash doesnt have greatness, I dont think, Jules said ƒ And she might not even need it. I always thought talent was everything, but maybe it was always money. Or even class. Or if not class exactly, then connections.Ž Ms. Wolitzer says money and class turned out to be important themes in the book. The way (New York City) changed and squeezed out the artists and became a money culture in the 80s was something I witnessed, living here, and it affects everything. The idea of money and art being so mixed up together made you feel uneasy. On the other hand, were not 5 years old and allowed to fingerpaint all day. If you take yourself seriously as an artist, you may have a family to support. How are you going to do that in this world? Theres a lot about class difference ... (my character) Jules, when she starts out, has no idea. She kind of thought it would all be equal and fair, but of course, it isnt.ŽBeginningsMs. Wolitzer had an early start in her career. While in college, in the summer of 1979, she was a guest editor at Mademoiselle magazine (following in the footsteps of such literary greats as Sylvia Plath and Joan Didion.) She studied with novelist Mary Gordon in college and published her first novel, Sleepwalking,Ž while still an undergraduate. She knew it was possible to make a living writing books because her mother, Hilma Wolitzer, had carved out a career as a writer. Her novels include Hearts,Ž Silver,Ž In the Palomar ArmsŽ and, her most recent, An Available Man.Ž She came to it late,Ž Ms. Wolizter says about her mothers work as a writer. The fact that shes a writer allowed me to come to it easy and feel that this was something legitimate. She always took me „ and takes me „ seriously.Ž Her mother began writing around the time of second wave feminism, she says, noting, There were interesting women coming up, we were hearing from new kinds of voices. It was an exciting time to think about being a writer, and not to feel that things were closed out to you. It allowed me to think that this is something I could give a shot to. She encouraged me, always.ŽWriting binges and disciplineMs. Wolitzer says that although shes fairly disciplined when it comes to writ-ing, Its not in a conventional way.Ž She doesnt write from 9 to 5 every day, though when shes in the midst of writing a book, she doesnt pay attention to the clock. When Im involved in a book, I want to be in it all the time, as much as I can,Ž she says. And she wants to enjoy herself. You have to feel pleasure along with the difficulty. Its not pleasurable that often „ italicize that,Ž she says. It can be, but its always a work in progress. Every day is a certain new opportunity to think about your work in a new way.Ž When shes working on a book, shes just buzzing with it,Ž she says. Even when youre not typing, youre thinking, youre writing on scraps of paper; when youre walking down the street, youre thinking, youre phoning it in with your friends, you want to be left alone to work.Ž She describes the process as monthslong binges. I guess I dont beat myself up when I have days that Im not working; everybody needs that balance,Ž she says. A lot of reading goes with your writing. You want to be excited by what youre reading. Youre in it alone when youre writing a book, and when you read, youre reminded why youre doing this. Youre reading something and you come across a line and you say, Ah, yes, this is what I want to be doing, my version of it.Ž Q NOVELISTFrom page 1 FLORIDAFrom page 1She had shopped for Heywood-Wakefield Ashcraft rattan in Indiana, but thought better of it. Why pay to ship furniture to Florida? Instead, she waited until she was in Fort Myers and bought a bamboo ensemble that included a very comfort-able platform rocker, step-end tables, a cocktail table and a rather stiff con-vertible sofa that was upholstered in a colorful bark cloth. There also was a television and an aquarium. The ceiling had exposed cedar beams and rafters that dripped sap onto the furniture and occupants. It was pretty, butƒThe nine designers Mr. Pubillones and the Cultural Council tapped „ Stephen Mooney, Susan Morgan, Frank Randolph, Allan Reyes, Angela Reyn-olds, Nickie Siegel and Judy Weiss, Gil Walsh and William Wright „ creat-ed rooms that are much dressier than Grandma ever could have imagined. The rooms at the cultural council are very different spaces, but there is a com-mon thread. Theres always a seating area. Of course, the Florida room is where you go to relax,Ž said Nichole Hickey, man-ager of artist services at the cultural council. For example, Mr. Wright, a Lake Worth designer, imagined a serene space in beiges and cream accented with yellow, red and orange. Wing chairs lend a for-mal note, but its formality with a wink; the chairs are of wicker. In Mr. Mooneys space, the Palm Beach designer has created a tented fantasy of blue and white, with lattice fabric covering the ceiling and a Blue Willow design draping the edges. White metal garden chairs surround a table lighted by a white tole chandelier. A mahogany Regency-style server lends a formal note. Its perfect for an intimate brunch or dinner. And Ms. Walsh, who lives in Jupiter and has studios in West Palm Beach and on Marthas Vineyard, turns the whole notion of rattan on its head, using Vic-torian pieces she found in Santa Fe, of all places. She set those angular pieces against turquoise walls. A mirror of red-lacquered sea urchins hangs over the sofa, and oyster-shell lamps shed a little light on their subject. A fluffy rug covers the floor and shells top an Isamu Noguchi-style glass-top coffee table. Its eclectic, yet stylish.The pace and design ideas are very distinct, thanks to all the different materials used,Ž Ms. Hickey said. Each vignette is truly reflective of the designers themselves.Ž Mr. Pubillones agreed.There was room for interpretation,Ž he said. Some are really tropical, some are in between and some are like an out-door pavilion of sorts.Ž It also showcases the diversity of designers. What was also exciting was that the designers came from all over the county, from Tequesta to Boca. Its really rep-resenting countywide design. That was another important factor,Ž Mr. Pubil-lones said. The notion of the Florida room evokes memories for those who grew up in Florida in the mid-20th century. Mr. Pubillones remembers his grandfather playing dominoes and greeting friends in the un-air-conditioned space in Miami. In Fort Myers, Grandmas neighbors faithfully blasted The Lawrence Welk ShowŽ full tilt each Saturday night after tuning in to Hee-hawŽ on the television they tucked into a corner of the room, so they could sit in the breeze, yet pro-tect the equipment from the rain. When central air conditioning became a standard feature in the 1970s, the Flori-da room evolved. Drop ceilings hid insulation and ductwork, shag carpets covered wood and terrazzo floors, and entertainment sys-tems replaced the simple televisions. Thats what happened to Grandmas Florida room, and to thousands of oth-ers. But blink and youll still see interpretations of the space. Rena Blades, CEO of the cultural council, remembered hearing the term in her former home. I heard the term in Texas, although we take it to a different level here,Ž she said. Ms. Blades and her husband, John, who runs the Flagler Museum, have a home in North Palm Beach. Mines an outdoor Florida room. I didnt close mine because of the nature of my house,Ž she said. For me, I fur-nished it with comfortable, sort of woven rattan furniture and Middle East-ern mosaic tables and tile.Ž But heres what unites the space with Grandmas Florida room and others: Its very comfortable and casual.Ž Q >>What: “Interior Design: The Florida Room” >>When: Through March 29; there also will be a lecture by participating designers at 3 p.m. March 11.>>Where: Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, 601 Lake Ave., downtown Lake Worth>>Cost: Free >>Info: 471-2901 or palmbeachculture.com in the know LUCIEN CAPEHART PHOTOGRAPHY William Wright’s Florida room is the first room visitors see at the cultural council exhibition.

Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Its not unusual to see married owners splitting the jobs at a restaurant, front and back of house. Thats how it is at Gazebo Caf in Jupiter „ with a twist. Here, Carmen Norocea is the chef, while her husband, Ilie Mircea, handles reservations and the dining room. I dont cook,Ž Mr. Mircea said. I boil eggs sometimes.Ž He laughed, and his spouse smiled at the mental image. Theres a secret to working together every day, Ms. Norocea said. Her advice: At work you are business part-ners, and at home you are husband and wife. Try to keep the roles separate and dont mix them up.Ž Their partnership has resulted in a successful takeover of the 14-year-old restaurant in the Three Palms Plaza five years ago. Weve made some changes on the menu,Ž Mr. Mircea said, but they kept many items „ Dover sole, Escargot Bourguignon and other French clas-sics. We cant take those off.Ž Ms. Norocea, originally from Italy, is committed to fresh products in her kitchen, and she sources local farms for her ingredients. Diners can expect to find different seasonal specials whenever they go, even if they are repeat customers during the week. I try to create new things every day. I change the specials two or three times a week „ it depends on what I find fresh at the farms and in the mar-kets,Ž she said. I try to work with local fish, too.Ž Mr. Mircea produced a bowl of fresh kumquats to illustrate. The chef said, These are from a friends tree. I am making a kumquat sauce right now that goes great with some of the oilier fish such as pom-pano or king mackerel or salmon. It is so good „ my diners love it.Ž They also go wild for a beet salad she put on the menu after a party requested it. I put it on as a special for them, and now I cant take it off „ they remember it and ask for it every time and tell their friends.Ž She also focuses on Florida meats and other products. Weve been fea-tured on the cover of Florida Depart-ment of Agriculture Fresh from Flor-ida magazine for our commitment to use as much as possible local organic ingredients. We try to use as much organic foods as possible, but some-times, it is so expensive,Ž she said. She blames regulations for problems organic farms, dairies and ranches have in getting their foods to market. There are too many regulations here. In Italy, we have milk vending machines. You take your own contain-er and get fresh milk every day from local dairy farmers. Every neighbor-hood has one „ they help the farmers and the mothers who need fresh milk. It is cheaper than in the supermarket.Ž Ms. Norocea frowned. Here, you cannot even buy milk that hasnt been processed „ raw milk. And everybody drinks milk. I dont understand it. In Europe, we dont have GMO (geneti-cally modified) foods „ they are against it. Even now they are fighting GMO corn.Ž There, they are not that worried about what is in their food. They shop everyday for whatever is fresh. Here, everyone is worried about it. They shop at supermarkets. Its concerning.Ž Name: Carmen Norocea Age: 41 Original Hometown: Reggio Emilia, Italy Restaurant: Gazebo Caf, 2151 Alternate A1A, Jupiter; 748-5878 Mission: Every single dish that leaves my kitchen is prepared to order using the freshest, in season, sustain-able grown or caught, best possible quality ingredients. We (myself or my husband) go every single morning to buy what we need for the day. We get most of our produce from local farms and small fruit and vegetable stands. For these reasons, the dishes might be slightly different from one day to another, but every single day they are made from scratch with the freshest and best ingredients.Ž Cuisine: French and Italian with Floribbean influences. Training: Associate Degree in International Culinary Arts from Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Klogs.Ž Whats your favorite guiltypleasure food? Piadina Romagnola „ traditional Italian flat bread with stracchino cheese, pr osciutto arugula and tomatoes.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restau-rateur or chef? Follow your dream and never give up.Ž Q In the kitchen with...CARMEN NOROCEA, Gazebo Caf BY JAN NORRISjnorris@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Seafood spots set to openSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Carmen Norocea and her husband, Ilie Mircea, of Gazebo Caf.
