Relay For Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society, will take place from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday morning, and hundreds of community members will rally in support of the more than 1 million people in the United States who get cancer each year. The event is a place for community members to celebrate, to remember, and to fight back,Ž said Jenna Gillespie, Jupiter, who works as a Relay For Life Spe-cialist for the American Cancer Society in Northern Palm Beach Coun-ty. The events are volunteer-driven and staff-coached,Ž she says. And like any good coach, she talks about how much fun the event is going to be, adding, Ive been participating in Relay For Life since I was 15 years old. It was fun then, and its still fun.Ž Its been 29 years since the first Relay For Life was held in Tacoma, Wash., when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours straight to raise $27,000 for the American Cancer Society.

We are exporting, with great success and for the benefit of the rest of the country, our most radical ideas. Now, to be sure, most of Florida is not the SouthŽ in the regional meaning of the words and it has not been for a long time. We are an island of transplants from places without historic membership in the club of the old Confederacy; but that hardly matters now. States are realign-ing to the tune of a ƒwish I was,Ž res-urrecting failed ideas from the ashes of the Old South that harken back to the era when preserving our way of lifeŽ was the battle cry to mobilize the ruling planter class. Todays call to arms in defense of the mythical Dixie includes gun-waving, rhetorical rebel yells, and demagoguery sufficient to rouse a hot-blooded crush of indignant white folk into a political frenzy. They wage economic warfare mostly at their own and their neighbors expense. Nothing learned from the nations most divisive civil conflict sticks among the new South wannabes. The ghosts of the party of Lincoln have descended into Dantes inferno. The irony is rich: the once-federalist faithful abandoning willy-nilly their ancestral loyalty to the Union blue, to launch reconstruction dj vu by other means. Many a great-great-grand-pappy must be rolling over in their graves as the descendant young guns abandon the federal ranks in mass to join the rebels. Seductions by sunshine and rapacious dealing are burning through state legis-latures like Tom Wolfes Bonfire of the Vanities,Ž leaving no good deed for the people unpunished. They advocate states rights and secession, waving stars and bars to rally the troops to defend the new planta-tions. The mega mansions proliferate like dandelions in the great lawn and conceal, within the caste of their long shadows, the dreary shanties of millions of working poor. Fighting for state rights is an expansive table, too; almost any cause can find a seat. We demand the right to obesity and fight to eat ourselves to death with food addictions engineered by corporate design. We demand the right to poverty by making sure the minimum wage is the maximum wage, cutting food stamps, and denying unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed, despite the worst recession in 75 years. We demand the right to flaunt our wealth in the big house, lovely ladies in flowing gowns and tuxedoed men dancing the waltz of show-and-tell philanthropy, generosity masking the crime and corruption that made the most infamous among them filthy rich. It is as if we resurrected in the flesh the mournful Ashley Wilkes from Gone With The WindŽ to avenge old, sacred grievances of sovereignty lost. Our states legislators deny expansion of Medicaid to the states uninsured because acceptance of federal dollars is inconsistent with our God-given right to act stupid. Meanwhile, uninsured millions and taxpayers infinitum get no benefit from billions in taxes contributed to support the program. Demagogues lure the gullible to distraction by promoting culture wars as they dismantle brick-by-brick the nations commitment to equality of opportunity, urging old insurrections that once nearly destroyed the nations democratic ideals. Why not different classes of citizenship as a way to resolve the immigration problem? It worked well to count slaves as three-fifths of a person for purposes of taxation. Lets also limit the franchise to the privileged, too, and make it hard to vote. It could be worse: No Senator today has suffered a severe beating at the hands of a crazed Congressman on the floor of the U.S. Senate, an incident that occurred in the run-up to the Civil War. But how long before some jackass pulls out a gun, shoots to defend against threats to their honor,Ž and then pleads, Stand Your GroundŽ? Some say the Citizens United decision rendered by the Supreme Court in 2012 is our eras version of the Courts Dred Scott decision in 1857. In that decision, southern justices sympathetic to the South recruited a northern justice to join them in a major-ity opinion that ruled slaves werent people; they were property. Last fall, Jim Leach, a former Republican Congressman, wrote in a Boston Globe op-ed, ƒTo justify slavery, the court in Dred Scott defined a class of human beings as private property. To magnify corporate power a century and a half later, it defined a class of private property (corporations) as people.Ž I used to think if you wanted to see what the nation would look like had the South won the Civil War, you need only travel to Mississippi; but now I think you dont have to go nearly that far.

Dianne Feinstein said last month in what was, then, her routine defense of the mass global surveillance being conducted by the National Secu-rity Agency and other U.S. intelligence agencies. All that has changed now that she believes that the staff of the com-mittee she chairs, the powerful, secre-tive Senate Select Committee on Intel-ligence, was spied on and lied to by the CIA. The committee was formed after the Watergate scandal engulfed the Nixon administration. The Church Committee, led by Idaho Democratic Sen. Frank Church, conducted a com-prehensive investigation of abuses by U.S. intelligence agencies, of everything from spying on anti-war protesters to the assassination of foreign leaders. Thus began the modern era of congres-sional and judicial oversight of U.S. intelligence. The recent public spat between CIAloyalist Feinstein and that agency might briefly upset the status quo, but they will make up. Sadly, it obscures a graver problem: the untold story of the United States secret policy of torture and ren-dition (the latter is White House lingo for kidnappingŽ). The conflict surrounds the mammoth, classified Intelligence Committee report on this notorious U.S. government pro-gram. Feinstein and other senators have sought the declassification of the 6,300-page document. We have now learned from press reports and from a speech Feinstein made on the Senate floor this week that Intelligence Committee staff-ers were given access to CIA documents at a secure CIA facility, somewhere outside of CIA headquarters. Feinstein described the scene: The CIA started making documents available electroni-cally to the committee staff at the CIA leased facility in mid-2009. The number of pages ran quickly to the thousands, tens of thousands, the hundreds of thou-sands, and then into the millions. The documents that were provided came without any index, without organiza-tional structure. It was a true document dump that our committee staff had to go through and make sense of.Ž Whether it was in those millions of pages, or provided to the Intelligence Committee staff from a CIA whistle-blower, we do not yet know „ but a key document surfaced, called the Internal Panetta Review,Ž ostensibly named after Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA at the time. Feinstein said in her floor speech, What was unique and interest-ing about the internal documents was ... their analysis and acknowledgement of significant CIA wrongdoing.Ž This Internal Panetta ReviewŽ specifically contradicts the CIAs own written tes-timony to the Intelligence Committee. Yes, the CIA was caught in a lie. It doesnt end there. Mike German, a fellow at New York Universitys Bren-nan Center for Justice who served as an FBI agent specializing in domes-tic counterterrorism for 15 years, said on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, This is really an extraordinary situa-tion ... this is supposed to be oversight of the CIA that the Senate is doing, not allowing the CIA to set the terms for the oversight of their own work.Ž Feinstein reported that hundreds of documents originally provided were later deleted by the CIA. Now, to add insult to injury, it turns out the CIA is seeking crimi-nal charges against committee staff-ers, ostensibly for stealing the Panetta review. Ray McGovern is a former top-level CIA analyst who publicly criticized the intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq. He told me: This goes back to the key question of supervising the intel-ligence community. ... People always say, After 9/11, everything changed. Well, it did change. The president, on the eve-ning of 9/11, said, I dont care what the international lawyers say. Were going to kick some ass. ... Well, they took some prisoners in Afghanistan, and the first person tortured was John Walker Lindh, an American citizen.Ž The torture was widespread, vicious and conducted in secret black sitesŽ around the globe. This is what is being lost in the Beltway power struggle between Sen. Feinstein and the CIA. Lives have been ruined; some in U.S. detention died violent deaths at the hands of their captors. In the grim American gulag at Guantanamo Bay, hunger-striking prisoners charged with no crime, some of whom have been cleared for release for more than a decade, are subjected to vicious force-feeding and torture techniques that date back to the Spanish Inquisition. Lets hope Feinsteins indignation is not quickly salved, and that the Intel-ligence Committees oversight of the sprawling U.S. intelligence agencies is invigorated, with real teeth. NSA whis-tle-blower Edward Snowden weighed in from political asylum in Russia, saying, Were seeing another Merkel Effect, where an elected official does not care at all that the rights of millions of ordi-nary citizens are violated by our spies, but suddenly its a scandal when a poli-tician finds out the same thing happens to them.Ž 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.The Russian reset to nowhere The resetŽ with Russia had a brief, unhappy life. It began with then-Sec-retary of State Hillary Clinton pre-senting her Russian counterpart with a mistranslated reset button reading over charged.Ž It ended with current Secretary of State John Kerry denying knowledge of the late, unlamented pol-icy on Meet the PressŽ: Well, I dont know what you mean by the reset.Ž Memories are short in Foggy Bottom. And understandably. Who wouldnt try to forget a geopolitical initiative that has been exposed as willful naivete and strategic obtuseness from the begin-ning? George Kennan wrote the famous Long TelegramŽ at the outset of the Cold War. President Barack Obama would have needed only A Very Brief TelegramŽ at the outset of his adminis-tration: Bushs fault.Ž This was a perverse misreading of history. Of all President George W. Bushs failings, not giving the Russians a chance wasnt one of them. He notoriously looked into Russian President Vladimir Putins eyes at the beginning of his presidency and saw sweetness and light. By the end, his illusions were shattered by the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008. President Obama picked up like this Russian act of aggression had been per-petrated long ago by the Grand Duke of Muscovy, instead of by the very regime he was resetting with. In a 2009 visit to Moscow, the springtime of reset, President Obama professed his belief that Americans and Russians have a common interest in the development of rule of law, the strengthening of democracy, and the protection of human rights.Ž He was 0 for 3. It didnt take a student of Russian history, or of international relations or even of the model U.N., to know that this would end in ashes. At one level, the Obama administration was guilty of the human impulse of wanting to see the world as you would like it to be, rather than as it is. At another, the president is not particularly interested in international relations. It was appropriate that one of his statements on the crisis came at an elementary school while announc-ing his latest budget, which reduces the U.S. Army to pre-World War II levels. Because we all know that we will never face an unexpected, unpredict-able international crisis again. Whereas Obama has the lefts traditional discomfort with American power, Putin has no such guilty con-science. Whereas Obama believes weve entered a paradisiacal new peri-od in history when everyone can be constrained by international norms, Putin has no such delusions. President Obama said recently that Ukraines stability and success are in Russias interest.Ž Not if you are Vladi-mir Putin and stung by the humilia-tion of the Russian empires diminish-ment after the end of the Cold War and informed by Catherine the Greats belief that the only way to secure Rus-sia borders is to extend them. President Obama declares that Russia is on the wrong side of history. That may be a clinching argument in a debate over gay marriage at Wes-leyan University, but wont carry much weight with Putin. He thinks he can make history move with lies, thuggery and iron. Its now Obamas challenge to prove him wrong. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Pets of the Week PET TALESPups and plantsGardeners with pets need to think ‘dogscaping’ as well as landscaping BY LIZ PALIKAUniversal UclickAs ice and snow melt and mud takes their place, the promise of spring appears with tiny green leaves on the trees. Nurs-eries begin stocking flowers and veg-etables for those brave enough to put in a spring garden. If you have a pet, however, gardening can bring a great deal of frustration. The owner of a Labrador retriever, who wishes to remain unnamed, planted 100 gladiola bulbs. When she was done, she went into the house to clean up „ while her dog dug up all 100 bulbs. Thankfully, the dog didnt chew on or eat the bulbs, as they are toxic, causing extreme saliva-tion, vomiting and diarrhea. With a little planning, though, you can have both a pet and a garden. Design and placementPets can foil gardening efforts by using the garden as a place to relieve them-selves, a nap spot or by digging up plants. Plus, some common garden plants can be poisonous to pets. Did you know that the foliage of both tomatoes and potatoes is toxic? To keep your garden and your pets safe, the best idea is to make your garden inaccessible to them. A raised-bed garden „ one elevated from the level of your yard with concrete blocks or wood planks „ works very well. You can build one in the size and shape of your choice, or seek out readymade raised-bed gardens from online garden catalogs; all you have to do is find the right spot and put them together. A fence is the best way to keep your best friend in your good graces. A short decorative fence at the top of the raised-bed garden can work, although if you have a garden in the ground, youll need a taller, sturdier fence. Think about the placement of your garden. Judy Macomber, a master gar-dener who is a dog owner herself, says to examine your dogs present habits. Where does your dog sleep outside? Where are his paths for wandering the yard? Where does he find shade when its hot?Ž Its much better to locate the garden in an area where your dog hasnt already established himself than it is to change those habits.Garden issuesGardens bring some potential dangers for pets. Many gardeners use a variety of products that can harm or even kill pets. Thankfully, safer alternatives exist. Choose plants wisely. The ASPCA has a comprehensive list of poisonous plants on its website: www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/cats-plant-list. Print the list and take it with you when you shop for seeds or plants. Pesticides can be poisonous to your pet, and long-term exposure has been linked to cancer. Thankfully, they arent necessary in most home gardens. Instead, handpick insects off your plants or sim-ply wash the plants with soap and water. A few drops of citrus dish soap in a spray bottle filled with water works well. Herbicides have also been linked to cancer, especially bladder cancer, in dogs. Avoid them by simply pulling or digging up the unwanted plants. If thats not possible, pour boiling water on the weeds. Chemical fertilizers can burn your pets paws and are often toxic, but natu-ral soil conditioners, such as those made from earthworm castings, are safe for you and your pets. Also, did you know that coffee grounds and tea bags make great fertilizers? Place several tea bags or some coffee grounds in a gallon of water, let them steep and then water your plants. Many online resources offer safe gardening tips as well as pet-safe pest-con-trol solutions. Macomber recommends www.mastergardene rss andiego.org. If you have questions about gardening in your locale, a master gardener in your area should be able to help. Find one at the American Horticulture Soci-etys website: www.ahs.org/gardening-resources/master-gardeners. Q „ Guest columnist Liz Palika is an award-winning writer and certified dog trainer.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYhomes and other places. ChildNet of Palm Beach County, the nonprofit agency responsible for child welfare services in the county, scram-bled to accommodate the influx. The number of removals „ kids placed in the care of the state for at least 24 hours or indefinitely „ nearly doubled from 583 in 2012 to more than 1,000 in 2013. That includes those who went to live with licensed foster parents, in a group home, or with family and friends. The most important thing that the local community can do is either foster, or to talk to and help us recruit more foster parents,Ž said Larry Rein, head of ChildNet. The spike in kids coming into the dependency system followed highly pub-licized deaths of chil-dren who had been under DCF supervi-sion, which generally occurred in the first half of last year. Such reports may have spurred people to call in more cases to the state hotline and put pressure on DCF investigators to be quicker to remove kids from homes that could potentially be dangerous, officials and child advocates suggested. Thats our major hypothesis,Ž said Mr. Rein. The beginning of the school year, a lack of social services „ especially for parents suffering from drug abuse and mental health problems, child advo-cates said „ and other factors may have added to the number of children need-ing welfare services. The numbers of kids in the system remains high, even if the rate of their arrival has started to taper off, leading to a range of challenges. Investigators and case managers may have less time to focus on individual cases. Agencies also report that an increasing number of children have been placed in neighboring counties. More than 100 children from Palm Beach were placed outside the county last year because there was nowhere else to put them, said Charles Bender, executive director of Place of Hope in West Palm Beach. Shuffled out of the county, they likely change schools, separating them from friends and resources they may have become accustomed to. The distance makes it more difficult to schedule par-ent visitations, crucial to eventually reuniting them with their children. And it creates bureaucratic challenges that make an already bulky system even more unwieldy. Everything becomes much more difficult and it just doesnt operate as smoothly,Ž said Mr. Rein. It also makes it more difficult to place siblings together in the same home. West Palm Beach foster parent Dorothy Alvarez took a group of siblings into her care recently. They had been split up. When they came in they didnt have any homes in Palm Beach to place them, not together or separate, really,Ž she said. Now theyre back in Palm Beach, though still in different homes. Some-times they see each other, but saying goodbye is hard. Theres just crying usually and holding on,Ž Ms. Alvarez said. Thats the big challenge because its heartbreaking and you have to be strong for that, you know?Ž Case managers have also taken on greater workloads as they work to keep children on a path towards going back to their biological parents, or being adopted, if possible. In Palm Beach County, 143 children were adopted in 2013 and 305 were reunited with a par-ent or caretaker. As a result of the increase in removals, We got a lot of calls after hours and during business hours,Ž said Dora Cario, case manager with Lutheran Services, a nonprofit in Southwest Florida. One call she took in December was about a large group of siblings, from toddler to teenager, who were being physically abused. They couldnt be placed together. I know the older ones have it hard „ harder, I should say „ because they know whats going on,Ž Ms. Cario said. South FloridaOfficials found that the sharp increases in children being referred into the system mostly took place in South Flor-ida, said Mr. Rein and others. Childrens Network of Southwest Florida reported that in August, the agency was serving about 1,300 kids in the region, including those receiving in-home care; by Janu-ary, that number was close to 1,700. I think we just desperately need more good foster parents „ (but) not just anybody,Ž said Cape Coral resi-dent Wendy Vernon, co-president of the SWFL Foster & Adoptive Parent Associ-ation. The process requires an extensive background check and training. Teenagers especially have trouble finding foster parents. Magistrate Steven Studybaker manages cases for the dependency court in Lee County, including daily shelter hearings. A clerk told him that the court had opened about 90 cases through the beginning of March „ double that of last year. But statewide, removals and total kids in out-of-home care declined last year after peaking in 2011 and 2012. That corresponds with the high-profile Bara-hona child murder case, pointed out Maria Bond, director of Foster & Adop-tive Parents Association in West Palm Beach. It began in February 2011 and involved adoptive parents in Miami-Dade County. Ms. Bond suggests when that case goes to trial, probably this year, its sensational nature could lead to another uptick in kids coming into the system. Typically one big case will do it, or a number of cases where DCF had been involved,Ž she said. If youre an investi-gator or administrator with the depart-ment, who wants to take any chances? I personally think thats the toughest job to have. Regardless of whether its DCF administration or society, it is still a pendulum swing. When something hap-pens theres a kneejerk reaction and no one wants to be at fault in another trag-edy happening.ŽBetter timesCape Coral residents Wendy and Paul Vernon have fostered 26 children over the years, some for only a few hours. Others for years. One 3-year-old came to them really nonfunctional.Ž He couldnt walk, talk, or eat properly. But as he improved, one evening stuck in Ms. Vernons memory. He didnt know there was a moon,Ž she recalled. He didnt know there was a sky. The first time we went outside and he pointed up at the sky and said, Moon, I wanted to scream like I was on a mountaintop.Ž Some of the children theyve fostered may not remember who she is, Ms. Ver-non says, which is OK with her. No matter how long they stay, They take a part of you „ but they leave a part behind also,Ž she said. One 9-year-old, just removed from his home, arrived at the Vernons home around 10:30 at night. He would only sit sobbing in a chair. He had to be up early for court, so Ms. Vernon tucked him in to bed and gave him a teddy bear.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 NEWS A9In the morning his demeanor had changed. He said he had slept well and told Ms. Vernon that he thought his bed had enough room for a few other kids like him. Those funny little things, they dont leave you,Ž she said. For foster children, memories are just as wide-ranging, and each story is unique, said 22-year-old Kenisha Antho-ny. At age 5, she was removed from her parents because of an addiction they still struggle with. Growing up in Miami, she bounced around from an abusive aunt to living with her sister and the sisters abusive boyfriend to finally finding a foster parent as a teenager „ only to age out of the system at 18 while still in high school, having fallen behind while mov-ing about. But she made it to graduation (the hardest time of my lifeŽ) and is attend-ing college in Miami while volunteering for Florida Youth SHINE, an advocacy group made up of former foster chil-dren. For me when I look back on it, when youve been through so much „ its hard and its heartbreaking,Ž she said. Youre young and you look at every-body else and youre like, Dang, why did my life have to turn out like this? Why did I have to go through all of these things? You think to yourself, even if youre crying and feeling down: you dont have nobody. Youre the pilot of your own life. You have to pick your-self up, you have to find your way, you have to learn how to accept things and learn from them regardless how bad, how heartbreaking they were. You have to make a difference for yourself and prove them wrong and prove yourself wrong.ŽChild protective investigators After a call is placed to the state hotline, DCF child protective investigators are responsible for removing kids from dan-gerous homes. But that doesnt mean they decided to start removing more of them in reaction to critical media reports last year. We as a region didnt look at the child deaths or negative publicity and put out some kind of edict,Ž said Den-nis Miles, southeast regional managing director of child protective investigators for DCF, which includes Palm Beach County. What weve always said is youve gotta look at each single case individually.Ž But he adds that investigators could be influenced by the reports. It may in the short term have some effect on removal rates,Ž he said. Also the communities are reading those arti-cles. Theres a heightened sense in the community after a child death. So we do get some additional calls where we do see the concerns that are reported to us and we make removals.Ž For investigators, walking the line between when to remove a child from a situation and letting them stay can be tricky, said Palm Beach investigator Meredith Gray. She works with fami-lies who are often in crisis mode at the moment she arrives. I personally, I dont remove very much,Ž she said. I have to say thats the last thing I want to do. I try not to let the media or anything get to me. Because we do have a bad reputation in the media. The public perceives us as getting a case, a report, and we go remove the children. (But) we put in services, we try to keep the child safe in their home.Ž Investigators often have to face a quandary, Mr. Miles said. Are we ripping people away from their families or leaving children in unsafe environments that may lead to a tragedy? Its something we talk about and train constantly on that very deli-cate balance. The only way to approach it is on a case by case basis.ŽReform follows deathsA DCF-commissioned report released last November examined 40 child deaths. They accounted for slightly more than a third of reports of child fatalities possibly related to child mal-treatment received by DCF in the first seven months of 2013,Ž a widely circu-lated DCF memo read. Drug abuse, chronic mental health problems and domestic violence were the leading problems in those house-holds. Their deaths were unimaginable and shocking to the conscience. Some were beaten,Ž wrote Perry Thurston, leader of Florida House Democratic Caucus, in a withering letter to Gov. Rick Scott in December. Some suffocated or starved. Many were toddlers or infants. For all of them, the misery and abuse that defined their lives and deaths is impossible to comprehend.Ž Mr. Thurston took Gov. Scott to task for the deaths, alluding to his 2011 mea-sure to cut $179 million from DCFs budget. That severe cut didnt end up happening, but hundreds of the agencys workers were laid off. Now, the governor and legislators are working to make a host of improve-ments. Florida senators in the Children, Families and Elder Affairs committee are sponsoring three bills to better serve children. Their measures include creat-ing an advisory group to the state on child welfare policy, better training for investigators and care for medically complex children.Ž Senator Nancy Detert, R-Venice, whose district includes Charlotte Coun-ty, is sponsoring bill 7074. It includes a measure requiring DCF to put up a website that includes facts about child deaths and create a team to analyze deaths involving children. In addition, Gov. Scott is proposing a $31.9 million increase for child pro-tection services, calling it an historic increase to DCF funding.Ž The money would be used to hire more than 400 child protective inves-tigators with the goal of reducing case-loads to 10 per investigator in a 30-day period. Child protective investigator Mr. Miles said of Gov. Scotts proposal, Thats literally a game changer. Well be able to lower the caseloads that each of our CPIs is carrying. Everything good happens when caseloads are down. Its the be all and end all.Ž But the services for kids will be lopsided unless funding is also increased for the case managers, who take over after investigators are finished with their job „ as well as additional funds to help with problems like drug abuse, said Mr. Rein of ChildNet-Palm Beach. The governor has a proposal to increase (funding for) protective inves-tigation. But if you increase that and you dont increase it for case manage-ment, youre going to make things even worse,Ž he said. The state needs to invest in case management resources and the money to increase the services the kids need, be they residential or behavioral health resources.Ž And before investigators turn a child over to the state, DCF should redouble efforts to ensure parents are taking advantage of social services that could help them keep their children, said Robin Rosenberg, director of Floridas Children First, a statewide advocacy organization. We need to follow up and make sure families actually engage in these servic-es,Ž she said, whether a financial train-ing seminar or visits with a therapist. We really need to have a better control on what we call service tracking and making sure theres follow-through. I think that is a big gap that needs to be filled.Ž Q „ To contact ChildNet, call 352-2500 or visitchildnet.us. „ Florida Weekly Staff Writer Athena Ponushis contributed to this report. “You’re young and you look at everybody else and you’re like, ‘Dang, why did my life have to turn out like this?

The technol-ogy promotes safer, bet-ter patient care when it counts, and has been used by Palm Beach State Col-lege for more than 10 years. Now the Florida Blue Foundation has awarded Palm Beach State a $55,000 grant to enhance the use of simulation technology in its health sciences programs. The college is one of eight Florida institutions to share in the approximately $350,000 Florida Blue Foundation Simulation Mini-Grant Program to support applied simulation research and program development to advance health care education and training. Human patient simulators are wireless, computerized mannequins, avail-able in each gender and stage of life, that are capable of mimicking any medical condition or crisis, from heart attacks to asthma to diabetes. PBSC will use the new funding to further develop training scenarios and curriculum to prepare students to work collaboratively in the team-based approach used in actual health care settings. Through real-life scenarios, students enrolled in the Nursing, Emergency Medical Servic-es and Respiratory Care programs, for example, would gain an understanding of each others roles and competencies, while applying their specific hands-on knowledge and skills in real-time. In todays patient-centered health care system, teamwork is paramount,Ž says Dr. Jacqueline Rogers, Lake Worth campus dean of health sciences and public safety. The Florida Blue Foundation grant will allow us to fine-tune our work with simulation technology with the goal of achieving reproducible results that can be shared statewide.Ž PBSC was the first to use medical simulation in an educational setting in Palm Beach County when Dr. Rogers used this new technology in the col-leges Respiratory Care program in 2001 and founded the colleges Center of Excellence in Medical Simulation. Simu-lation activities have grown since then with more than 5,000 students in health sciences and public safety programs provided high-fidelity simulation expe-riences during their training. The Research Committee of the Florida Healthcare Simulation Alli-ance assisted the Florida Blue Founda-tion with the development of the simu-lation mini-grant program. Other recip-ients include Baptist Health System at Jacksonville, Florida Internation-al University College of Nursing and Health Sciences, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute Founda-tion, Seminole State College, University of Central Florida Research Foundation, University of Florida Health Shands Hospital, and the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies.

His closest friend, Jeff Baker, had asked to meet after work for drinks. Ron was well aware that Jeffs business had been floundering, and that the Bakers were having a hard time staying afloat. The Grants and Bakers had known each other for more than 20 years, and had shared lifes major events and challenges. So, Ron was not surprised when Jeff approached him, confiding he was behind in his mortgage and desperately trying to make ends meet. Jeff was requesting a sizeable loan, which he believed would help him catch up on his bills and get out from the heavy cloak of worry. The Grants accountant advised them to draw up a contract, with clear cut terms of repayment, and to request nominal interest. But, the Grants worried this would be insulting to their friends. Eventually, they loaned the requested funds with a handshake. But, now, a year had passed, and the Bakers had only sporadically made payments „ and well below the agreed upon amount. Relations between the two couples had become strained. Susie was offended when the Bakers declined an invitation to her 50th birthday party, with a lame excuse. Sadly, things came to a head when a mutual friend casually mentioned theyd just booked a pricey cruise, along with the Bakers. Ron was incensed: how dare the Bakers spend on a vacation, when they were clearly reneging on a promise to the Grants.Weve all heard the admonition: Dont lend money to family or friends „ if youre not prepared to lose the whole thing.Ž Well of course, we may say: Thats easier said than done.Ž How do we turn down the financial request of someone we care about, ESPECIALLY, if were actually in a posi-tion to help? Theres never a clear-cut answer to this one. When approached for a loan, there are some folks who will firmly say: I have a strict policy of never lending money to friends or family. I would never take a chance on jeopardizing our relationship.Ž In actuality, thats prob-ably the safest and best-advised policy. Lending money can be such an emotionally loaded proposition, we prob-ably would be well served to avoid put-ting ourselves in this position. So many of us are caring, well-intended folks. We may legitimately have concerns about a friends plight and wish to be helpful. So, we may brush aside any premoni-tions. There are so many possible avenues for misunderstandings or hard feelings. If the amount of dollars requested is minor, the repercussions faced could be minimal. However, if a large sum of money has been requested, we may need to tread more carefully. Attorneys or accountants would probably advise that we draw up a contract with clearly delineated terms, and an agreed upon plan for the method and time schedule of payments. But many of us worry the borrower will take offense at such a request, so we hesitate to take these protective legal steps. Sometimes, were already in hot water, no matter which choice we make. Our intimates size up what they believe our financial circumstances to be (right-ly or wrongly), and have expectations of how we should behave. There may be a sense of entitlement, or undercur-rents of resentment or jealousy. They may accuse us of insensitivity or greed, angry we are not more forthcoming. Even a heartfelt discussion of legitimate worries about the stresses placed on the relationship could fall upon deaf ears. We would like to think that a borrowerŽ would be so appreciative of our thoughtfulness he would jump at every possibility to show gratitude and begin reimbursing us, at every possible opportunity. We would also assume that repaying the debt would be of such high priority that the borrower would forgo luxuries, such as non-essential pur-chases and vacations. There certainly are many responsible, ethical folks who have fallen on hard times who would prescribe to the above. However, human nature sometimes works in funny ways. Its not uncom-mon, in some instances, for the borrow-er to feel embarrassed or defensive to be in a less-than position, and to ultimately transform this discomfort to resentment towards the lender. People have the uncanny ability to justify their positions. A vacation may not be seen as a luxury, but rather a much-deserved rest from an overly stressed schedule. After a while there may even be a justification that the lender doesnt need the money, so its perfectly fine to deviate from the previously agreed upon terms.Ž And, then of course, theres the prickly topic of approaching each other about following through with the agreed upon terms „ awkward for all parties „ and invariably handled in a way that engen-ders embarrassment and/or animosity. If the discussion doesnt prompt results, and the parties are forced to revisit the terms, the next go-round will probably be all the more loaded, with all parties feeling put-upon, and annoyed. Before lending money we should ask ourselves some important questions. What lengths are we prepared to go to should the loan not be paid back in a timely manner or the borrower ulti-mately does not have the means to repay the loan? Will we take coercive or legal steps? What impact will these measures have, not only on the relationship with the borrower, but with the extended network of family or friends? Its best to assume that at some point the extended network of intimates may be drawn into the fray, and may have very definite ideas about how things should be han-dled. Loyalty issues and jealousies may be compounded as all players voice in. Issues that should have been kept pri-vate may become loaded torpedoes.

Its Mobile. For many, it’s sneezing season: Here are some ways to copeAh, the first day of spring. The weathers getting warmer and the flowers and trees are blooming. You want to spend more time outside enjoying the great weather, and then it hits. Your sinuses clog up, your eyes are running and youre sneezing your head off. Welcome to seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis. As many as 1 in 5 people have symptoms of allergic rhinitis. The timing of the symptoms depends on what is causing the allergic reaction. For some people, spring brings the worst of the symp-toms. Others can react more in summer and fall, when grasses and weeds are pollinating. Some people react to aller-gens like spores, dust mites, cockroach-es and pet dander that cause symptoms throughout the year. You may be more at risk for developing hay fever if you have other allergies or asthma. The tendency to develop aller-gies usually runs in families, and men are more likely to develop hay fever. If you were exposed to secondhand smoke when you were a baby, you may be more likely to develop allergic rhinitis. While hay fever isnt considered a serious health risk, it can disrupt your life. Symptoms can interfere with your ability to participate in daily activities, and you may have to miss school or work. The congestion can affect your sleep. Anyone who has asthma in addition to hay fever may notice that their asthma symptoms worsen when their seasonal allergies hit. Children with hay fever may develop inner-ear infections. Allergic rhinitis also can contribute to developing sinusitis and secondary sinus infections.Treating seasonal allergiesSo what can you do? There are several over-the-counter allergy medica-tions designed to treat allergy symp-toms. Make sure you read the label on these medications and that they are age-appropriate, since some are only intended to treat adults. Also check for possible drug interactions if you are on other medications.If your symptoms become severe, talk to your doctor. There are several pre-scription medications designed to treat these types of allergies. You also may need to see an allergy specialist to get tested for allergies. These tests help doc-tors develop a tailored treatment that may include allergy shots that help desensitize your body to the things you react to. You may want to try other at-home treatments such as using a sinus rinse or wash to gently clear mucus and aller-gens from your nasal and sinus passag-es. A neti pot or an infant nasal squeeze bulb can be used for your sinus washes. You can either buy a prepared solution or mix teaspoon of table salt with 2 cups of warm water. Make sure you mix a new solution each time to prevent bacteria from building up in the water. Other ways to help you avoid airborne allergens include: Q Keep your doors and windows closed and use your air conditioner at home and in the car. Q Dont hang laundry, especially bedding, outside. Q Pollen counts are higher in the early morning, so limit your outdoor activity during those hours. Q Stay inside when its windy outside. Q Replace your air conditioner filters monthly and use a high-efficiency par-ticulate air (HEPA) filter. Q Wear a dust mask when youre outside, especially for activities like gar-dening. Q If possible, avoid mowing the lawn or raking leaves, since these activities send more pollen into the air. Q Look for ways to keep your bedroom an allergen-free zone. You can use special cases that enclose your pil-lows, mattress and box springs to limit exposure to dust mites. Bedding should be washed weekly in hot water to kill dust mites. Pets should not be allowed to sleep in the bedroom. If possible, remove carpeting from bedrooms and use washable rugs instead. To find a physician that specializes in the treatment of allergies, call Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center at 625-5070. Q i p o t s t larry COOMESCEO/Gardens Medical Center What are the risks to my ears of ” ying with a cold? One of the most common problems I see this time of year as families are flying south to escape the freezing temperatures (who can blame them this year?) and bask in the warm Florida sun is blocked ears. A virus causes most upper respiratory infections. When it infects the nose and upper airway it causes swelling of the lining of the nose plus an increase in mucous production. Fortunately, most viruses are self-limiting and resolve in 4-7 days. Since the lining of the Eustachian tube is the same as the nose it will also swell. When the Eustachian tube becomes blocked, the middle ear can no longer equilibrate to the outside atmospheric pressure. Pain, fluid in the middle ear and a marked hearing loss are signs of blockage! In extreme cases the eardrum will rupture. What can be done to prevent this situation? When you fly have in your possession, an over the counter antihistamine, and vasoconstrictor nose spray. The morning you fly take an antihistamine/decongestant. If the ear blocks in flight, spray each side of the nose and begin “popping” your ears. Aspirin will also help with the pain and because it’s anti inflammatory, it will help reduce the swelling. If your symptoms are full blown with fever, blockage and pain you should be seen, stat in the office for a shot of steroids to further reduce the swelling and enable a safe flight. Rarely if the patient has to fly and has fluid in the middle ear I will put a tube in the ear to bypass the Eustachian tube and ensure a safe painless flight.

What can implants do for me? Can they be mixed with a denture? Answer: The “gagginess” you get from your denture comes from having your palate covered. The importance of having a palate on your upper denture is to create suction. It is this suction that holds your denture in place. An implant is a supportive device. It can either support an abutment that holds a crown or it can support an abutment that retains a denture. In addition to reinforcing a restoration, implants maintain the bone it is placed in. If you place implants in strategic positions around your upper arch, you could then hold your denture in position and remove the need for the palate. This would then allow you reduce the amount of plastic your tongue feels — improving the feel and comfort of your denture and ending your feeling of “gagginess.” Another benefit of not having a palate to your denture is that food will taste better. Our palates are covered in tiny taste buds besides the ones on our tongues. An upper denture covers these, so food has less taste. Yes, implants can be mixed with your dentures. As you can see, implants can provide you with more benefits than just retention. There are also a number of “fixed” options available (these are not removable) that a skilled implant dentist could offer you depending on your personal situation.

A 3-week-old female Bairds tapir calf at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society now has a name, voted upon by students at Palmetto Elementary School in West Palm Beach. With 258 votes, Luna is the winning name, versus 75 votes for Sanda, and 112 votes for Dulce. Zookeeper April Winters, a primary keeper for the zoos Bairds tapirs, chose the three options from which the students chose. We wanted to honor the native environment where Bairds tapirs naturally roam, so she has a Spanish name, since thats the language spoken in Central America,Ž said Jan Steele, general cura-tor for the zoo, in a prepared statement. We are thrilled that Luna can now be introduced by name, as an ambassador for her species.Ž Zoo supporter Nancy Rogers sponsored the naming rights for the tapir calf, then donated the rights back to the zoo so local students could choose a name. Palmetto Elementary School students were shown a photo of the calf and received a lesson about endangered Bairds tapirs. Luna, which translates to moon,Ž was one of the options, since the tapir calf was born at night on Feb. 17. The calf now weighs 49.3 pounds, and continues to gain at least one pound every day, which is normal for tapirs. Veterinary staff said Luna is active and energetic. Brew at the Zoo needs volunteers: If youve ever had the desire to explore your wild side, heres your chance: The zoo is seeking volunteers for Brew at the Zoo 2014,Ž Palm Beach Countys most unique craft beer festival, which will take place at the Zoo on Sat., April 12 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. More than 60 volunteers are needed to help the event, with training required beforehand. In a prepared statement, Joe Landmichl, volunteer manager for the zoo, said this about the opportunity: This event would allow future servers and bartenders the chance to practice their potential trade. As a non-profit organi-zation, we rely on volunteers, and this is no exception … especially for what we believe will be such a fun night.Ž A 30-minute safe servingŽ training certification is required for volunteers, leading up to the April 12 Brew at the Zoo 2014Ž event. The online course can be completed at any time. Volunteers must be 18 or older. Those interested are encouraged to notify Mr. Landmichl at jlandmichl@palmbeachzoo.org, or call him at 547-WILD, Ext. 239. The zoo is at 1301 Summit Blvd., West Palm Beach. Visit palmbeachzoo.org.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY National Homeless Campaign comes to Palm Beach County SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Ed Tague is on the lookout for homeless veterans. The former Marine is leading a team of volunteers and Palm Beach County workers doing a homeless registry this month. Beginning March 26, Mr. Tague and his group will visit soup kitchens, homeless camps and anywhere the homeless congregate. We will be in parks at 4:30 in the morning, wherever theyre going to be,Ž Mr. Tague said in a statement. While he understands parts of the assignment could be dangerous if some of the homeless have weapons or dogs, the most important thing is being patient and trying to under-stand their situation,Ž Mr. Tague said in a prepared statement. The task force will be accompanied by officers from the West Palm Beach Police Department and Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. The 31-year-old Wellington native did three tours of duty in Iraq and said he faced challenges when return-ing to civilian life. He said he signed on for the job hoping his experience will help him relate to veterans he may encounter. Many dont know how to transition out of military life. They are used to being told what to wear, what to eat, how high to jump. They are not ready to transition so they selfmedicate with alcohol or drugs,Ž he said in the state-ment. The three-day count, which will stretch across the county, is part of the 100,000 Homes Campaign.Ž The 100,000 Homes Campaign is a national move-ment involving more than 230 cities, counties and states. Mr. Tague, along with volunteers, staff and partners of Palm Beach County Human and Veteran Services, will create a data-base to identify the most vulnerable homeless indi-viduals in our area to get them immediate, permanent housing. The Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County is funding the coordi-nation of the project. The last day of the registry coincides with Project Homeless Connect, a quarterly event that brings together service provid-ers. This is a community effort,Ž Marilyn Munoz, executive director of the Homeless Coalition, said in the statement. Thats what it will take to end the issue of homelessness in Palm Beach County, of us committing to work together.Ž To date, the 100,000 Homes Campaign has identified and housed more than 75,000 people, including 1,000 families and 20,000 military veter-ans.

The society has also announced British Open Champion and CBS Sports golf broadcast commentator Ian Baker-Finch as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. Presented by the Addison Hines Charitable Trust, the 2014 19th Hole Club will begin at 5 p.m. It includes a putting contest, chip-ping contest, dinner by the biteŽ and golf clinic with Mr. Kostis and Mr. Baker-Finch. Directly preceding the event will be a Womens TeeŽ Party and Fashion Show at The Breakers HMF Restaurant commencing at 3:30 p.m. with jewelry from Tamara Comolli Fine Jewelry. In a prepared statement, event chairman Jamie Zahringer said, We are thrilled to have Peter and Ian join us to raise support in the fight against cancer. With the 19th Hole Club event taking place the Monday after the Masters, we are sure to glean some memorable stories from their experi-ences at Augusta National while learning some useful putting and chipping tips. Guests will be able to utilize their newly acquired instruction against the pros for a putting and chipping contest which prom-ises to engage and entertain.Ž A world-renowned golf instructor, Peter Kostis was one of the original head instruc-tors for the Golf Digest Golf Schools and is currently a contributing columnist for Golf Magazine.Ž In 1992, Mr. Kostis joined CBS Sports as an on-course reporter and has been a part of the team for more than 22 years. In addition to his CBS duties, he was the lead golf analyst for the USA Network from 1989-2004. In June of last year, Mr. Kostis announced that he had been diagnosed with colon cancer and has undergone treatment after a successful surgery to rid him of cancer. In the prepared statement, Mr. Kostis said, Because of early detection, the prognosis for a full recovery is excellent. I had zero symptoms or family history. I urge every-one, if you are over 50, to get a regular colonoscopy exam whether you think you need one or not.Ž Handling the Master of Ceremonies duties and co-hosting the golf clinic with Mr. Kostis for the fundraising event will be local Florida resident, Ian Baker-Finch, who is best known for winning the 1991 British Open Championship and is also a member of the CBS golf broadcasting team with Mr. Kostis. Annual memberships to the 19th Hole Club start at $750 per couple ($500 per couple for those 45 years and younger) and include the Womens TeeŽ Party event. Tickets to the TeeŽ Party only are $100. For more information, tickets or sponsor-ship opportunities for the fundraiser, con-tact Linda Shaifer at the American Cancer Society Island of Palm Beach Unit by call-ing 655-3449. The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.

Thanks in part to its progress, nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. As the society celebrated its 100th birthday in 2013, it expresses determination to finish the fight against cancer „ find-ing cures as the nations largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more.

Since those steps, Relay For Life events nationwide have raised nearly $5 billion to fight cancer. Unlike many mega-sized fundraisers for powerhouse nonprofit organizations, each of the American Cancer Societ ys Relay For Life events is smaller and community based, and the organization has found success with this localized approach. Last year, the Jupiter event was held in Roger Dean Stadium for the first time, attracting about 500 par-ticipants and raising $36,000 through sponsorships, individual and team con-tributions, and sales of homemade items from each teams tent, of which 100 per-cent of the proceeds are donated back to the organization. We want this to be a very neighborhood, community-driven event,Ž says Ms. Gillespie, whose responsibilities also include oversight of Relay For Life events at Jupiter High School on April 5 and in Palm Beach Gardens on April 25. Gillespie says participants are welcome to join in whichever Relay For Life event works for them … and all of the money raised will support the organization, which has helped decrease cancer mor-tality rates by between 15 and 20 percent in the past decade. Although each Relay For Life takes on its unique local color … Relay For Life Jupiter is themed Relay in Paradise,Ž for example … there are certain com-ponents that they all share, including a Survivors Lap, Luminaria Ceremony, and a Fight Back Ceremony. The Roger Dean Stadium Relay For Life event also includes a special Survivors Dinner, where any cancer survivor and his or her guest is welcome to share a free meal alongside fellow survivors, uniting them in strength. And strength is really what its all about. Underlying Relay For Life events across the country, there is a symbolic and deeper meaning to staying awake all night and taking turns walking a track. The event is held all night because can-cer never sleeps, so for one night, were not going to,Ž says Ms. Gillespie. Further symbolism is found in the overall structure of each Relay For Life. When youre tired, its 2 a.m., and youre pushing through the night, its sym-bolic of a cancer patients trying journey through treatment. When the morning sun rises, its symbolic of the remission stage,Ž Ms. Gillespie explained. A lot of people dont know why Relay For Life events are held overnight, but it truly is an overnight journey.Ž Relay For Life at Roger Dean Stadium is made possible through the support of gold-level sponsor Pratt & Whit-ney, as well as through the efforts of a hardworking committee, including Shir-ley Smith, event chair; Adrian Or ozco, team development chair and member of the Florida Relay Advisory Team, and Event Co-Chair Alex Inman, who works as the assistant general manager of Roger Dean Stadium. Other commit-tee members are Carla Flores, Josh Hor-ton, Jessica Ivers, Robyn Lewis, Shawn Lopez, Kathy Olsen, Heather Robbins, Sue Sternberg; Barry Sternberg, Silvia Tray, Robert Tweeddale, Deanna Usi-adek, Jennifer Wesley and Doris Yates. Participants can sign up as individuals or as teams. Registration will remain open on-site. The American Cancer Society is also looking for day-of vol-unteers and future committee members.

Users urinate into a ceramic basin and flush the waste with run-off hand-washing water into a bed of bamboo plants. Mr. Bucknum claims minimal maintenance and an odor-free experience, but on the other hand, only a user s midsection area is blocked from public view „ a concession necessitated by San Franciscos sour experience with lockable public toilets, which shielded sex acts and crime. (A less-elaborate structure „ the open-air, similarly pri-vacy-challenging pPodŽ „ is currently being readied for deployment in the citys Dolores Park.) The entrepreneurial spiritQ Branko Bogdanov, 58, his wife, Lela, 52, and daughter Julia, 34, were arrest-ed in March and charged in a 10-year shoplifting enterprise run out of their upscale Northbrook, Ill., home, which they allegedly used as a base while prowling stores in states as far away as Florida, stealing high-end toys and jewelry, which they resold on eBay and to their fences. Police estimate the Bog-danovs swiped as much as $7 million worth on their forays „ many items being stashed in Lelas customized flow-ing skirts with hidden pockets. Q A trauma victim arriving at a hospital emergency room but requiring specialized intensive care would usu-ally be transferred promptly to a quali-fied trauma center,Ž whose success rate with such patients is believed to be 25 percent better than that of ordinary hospitals. However, a recent study from Stanford University researchers found that, among 636 hospitals observed, there was a greater reluctance to make the transfer „ if the patient was fully insured. (That is, the authors suggest, there is a tendency for hospitals to hang onto insured patients, even though their o utcomes might be worse, but not to similarly hang onto the uninsured „ who are more likely to be properly transferred.) Q Cosmetic surgery is expensive, but beauty-conscious Japanese girls and women (especially those obsessed with a more WesternŽ look) have low-priced workarounds to choose from „ as uncovered in January by the fashion blogger Liz Katz: (1) the $63 Face-Slim-mer Exercise Mouthpiece (insert it for three minutes a day, make vowel sounds and watch a saggyŽ mouth turn taut); (2) the Beauty Lift High Nose nostril clip, which emits electronic vibrations to raise the probosciss profile; (3) an altogether different but similarly pain-ful-appearing Nose Straightener (insert for 20 minutes a day for added perki-nessŽ). Science fairQ Hard-core pornography fans are split (according to a January report on Salon.com) on whether they want male actors to use condoms, but Cali-fornias Falcon Studios has the technol-ogy to serve both audiences. Falcons actors wear them, but in some mov-ies those condoms might be digitally removedŽ during post-production. The major downside, said one renowned director, is the prohibitive cost „ about $100,000 to re-digitize the estimated 90,000 frames in a typical low-budgetŽ porno film. The Falcon president said he is trying an alternative „ using clever lighting during filming to de-emphasize the condoms presence. Q Security and law enforcement agencies are looking beyond traditional biometric identification techniques (such as the accurate but obtrusive fin-gerprint and iris scans and unobtrusive yet questionably accurate facial-recog-nition) and, based on recent laboratory research, are now considering earwax and underarm odors. Work by Philadel-phias Monell Chemical Senses Center shows that ear secretions may reveal personal identity, ethnicity, health status and sexual orientation, among other information, and researchers at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain) said their work demonstrates that recognizable patterns in body odor remain stable even through disease and diet change (although admitting that even the best odor technology is far inferior to a dogs nose). Leading economic indicatorsQ Farming continues to be a noble but grueling existence for rural residents of China, who work for the equivalent of only about $1,300 a year, but in one village (Jianshe, in southwest Sichuan province), farmers have established a co-operative capitalist model, and in January officials delivered residents their annual dividend in cold cash „ the equivalent of about $2.1 million to split among 438 households. Authori-ties unloaded banknotes in stacks that constituted a 7-foot-high wall of money, requiring villagers to pull 24-hour shifts to guard it. Q With property values sky-high in posh London boroughs like Chelsea and Kensington, some super-wealthy resi-dents desiring to expand „ and who might ordinarily be forced to build up higher „ are building down, construct-ing elaborate, multistory basements instead. CNN reported in January that additions are underway (one covering five floors below ground) for subterra-nean home theaters, gyms, golf simula-tors, bowling alleys and even swimming pools. Q Costs of Spains Economic Collapse: (1) Londons Daily Mail reported in March that Spain might have as many as 2,900 recently abandoned villagesŽ (swaths of land with clusters of houses) deserted by owners forced into cities to find work during the current recession „ and that speculators were buying entire villages at single-house prices and turning them into vacation retreats. (2) A formal association of sex workers in Barcelona has introduced a four-hour introduction to prostitutionŽ class for women transitioning from other occu-pations due to layoffs. Course topics include tax-return help (prostitution is not illegal in Spain) and marketing, as well as sex tricks. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYof $21,000. Over on the east side of the state, there were more than 9,000 wed-dings in Palm Beach County with an aver-age spending of $27,000. While the immediate perception surrounding weddings may be emotive, Ms. Crooker says on the business end, Weddings take on a life of their own. Weddings are a lot of money.Ž Experts say every bride eventually figures it out: her wedding will be more expensive than she expected. These days there are no rules when it comes to weddings, but there should be a bud-get. I ts not about putting on a show, its about being true to you. And even though it seems like it might cost too much, hiring a planner or a coordinator could save a bride money. I have one bride who has extremely expensive taste,Ž says Ed Russo, CEO of Planned Perfection in Fort Myers. I can put three options in front of her and shes going to pick the most expensive one, thats who she is. Im there to help bring her back to reality, This is what you can spend.Ž Mr. Russo says brides know what they want, but they dont know what it costs. He keeps a bride happy by keeping her realistic. To be clear, Mr. Russo is a florist. He runs a flower business, not a wed-ding planning company, but hes really good at planning weddings, so when he makes a connection with a bride, he helps her plan her wedding day. He encourages brides to consider wedding planners or coordinators because they know the vendors and they know where to find the elements that will be most cost-effective for the bride. They are not overwhelmed with emotion but instead focus on the logis-tics, they remember the flatware and they know how to structure a wedding timeline. They help a bride see her vision and bring it to life. As far as the evolution of weddings, Mr. Russo says brides have really scaled back. Brides are watching their money, just like everybody,Ž he says. Five years ago, he was helping plan weddings for 200 to 300 guests. Now his brides are inviting 50 to 100 of their closest family and friends. Its still their dream wed-ding, but on a smaller scale.Ž Charlotte Hare, national president of the National Association of Wedding Professionals, sees weddings becoming more and more elaborate „ gelato bars, cigar rollers, photo booths with green screens. If a brides friend did it last year, she feels she has to go bigger and better and different,Ž Ms. Hare says. Owner of A Red Rose Linens in Palm Beach Gardens, Ms. Hare says many brides want a Ritz„Carlton wedding, The Breakers wedding, but theyre on a budget for a hall wedding. She tells engaged cou-ples if they cannot afford a good photographer, wait another year to save money, because the photographs will be how they remember their day. If a bride does not want to splurge on a wedding planner, Ms. Hare suggests a day-ofŽ coordinator for peace of mind. The bride and groom dont even know whats happening because the coordinators tak-ing all the heat, fixing everything, making it all run smooth, tak-ing huge amounts of stress off the family so they can enjoy their time with each other and enjoy their day,Ž she says. The one thing she tells every bride who sits in her office: Your wedding day is a regular day. Every day has bumps in the road. There may be an issue, but remember, at the end of the day, you will be married to the person, the best friend you love.Ž Shane McMurray, CEO and founder of The Wedding Report, feels too much emphasis has been placed on the average cost of a wedding, when his research shows 40 percent of wed-dings spend less than $10,000. Mr. McMurray says wedding-centric publications do not forward this figure because its counter-intuitive to their marketing purpose. Not just brides, but even those in the industry are bamboozled by these figures and feel like when it comes to a wedding, they have to spend all kinds of money,Ž he says. Business-minded bride Courtney Armen says she wanted a high-end wedding, but she didnt have high-end money, so she made her wedding an intimate affair, inviting people whom she genuinely cares about and who she knows genuinely care about her. She had 30 guests on her wedding day. Mrs. Armen helped coordinate 10 weddings before planning her own. The director of group sales at the Naples Zoo, Mrs. Armen oversees events, including weddings. She thought about having her own wedding at the zoo until someone asked her, Whos going to coordinate your wedding?Ž She had a grandiose vision of putting it all together then walking down the aisle, until she heard herself saying it out loud. I work really hard to make a brides wedding experience amazing without her having to worry about anything,Ž she says. I realized it was my turn.Ž Mrs. Armen was married in May 2012 at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. She expected to spend $10,000 to $15,000. She spent $17,000. She gave her brides-maids diamond necklaces. If she could give brides-to-be a piece of advice, she would say, Pinterest is good to a point ƒ Brides want it all but they dont know how to edit ƒ Take the 100 pins you like and narrow them down to the five you love. Pick things that rep-resent who you are as a couple on your wedding day. Dont put on a show. Keep it true to you.Ž Q BRIDALFrom page 29 COURTESY PHOTOThe Bridal Blast at Germain Arena in Estero, Florida. Can you hear it? Mendelssohns Wedding March.Ž Well, just wait.

Surely an investor s residence is pricelessly valued as a home. But beyond that, residential owners look at their proper-ties as investments. Ever since the 2008-10 apocalypse in the housing market, the maxim of buyer bewareŽ is firmly imprinted in the minds of investors. Some states have a unique residential profile, as do Florida and Arizona, in that much of the residential properties are condominiums. With the aging of the U.S. population and this demograph-ic groups shift to smaller residences and maintenance-free living, condomin-ium living will become more and more popular. If, as in Florida, there is a large trend toward condos, there will likely be more of a trend. If, as in North Dakota, there is lesser dependence on condos, there will still likely be growth in condo importance. Also, young couples and (the ever increasing category of singles) are inclined to buy condos. Somehow, you or your familys members will be involved with a condo. Condo buying is easy to do „ sometimes too easy. For buyers, there is euphoria about the development or the unit and the amenities look great and the interior is well appointed. Im all the giddiness of a new home, the buyer often breezes through the condo documents. Thats a big mistake, especially for investors looking to rent, in that some owner privileg-es are not available to renters. For example, most commonly, if the condo documents allow pets, it is generally one pet per residence; rarely two pets are allowed. For renters, the rule is generally no pets. The rules can make seasonal living in Southwest Florida a chal-lenge for northern domiciled pet owners. They want to rent for the season but „ no pets allowed for rent-ers, so they end up buying a condo just so Poochie-Smoochie can be cuddled at their sides. Some condo vs. house comparisons: Q Condo living requires an insurance policy on the interior contents; if you own your house free and clear, then homeowner and flood insurance is advisable but optional (obviously, a mortgagor requires such coverage). A condo association will cover the exte-rior insurance costs; your insurance is for the condos interior and associations often require proof of such. Q Condo living requires that you live by decisions made by the board. Those decisions might not reflect the majorities preferences. Boards do have leeway, however such leeway should not include selective enforcement of their rules. Compare that to non-condo living, which allows you to be king or queen and set your own rules. Q Condo living in a new development where the developer has failed and or has exited brings a host of issues. Many times the construction problems are not known until years after their departure or demise. Q Condo living requires monthly/ quarterly maintenance over which you have no control. House living allows you to work within your expanding or contracting budget, not contribute to a savings account for repairs of structure to be made many years in the future (e.g., roofing). When you own your home, you are able to competitively bid for maintenance according to your stan-dards or you just do it yourself. Q Condo living disputes in Florida do not go immediately to court. They must go through the state of Floridas Condominium Divisions for arbitration and file a $200 fee to begin the process. Before you buy a condo, whether to be your residence or to be used as an investment and rented, you need to understand a host of typical condo issues. The issues in con-dominiums are the same in Flor-ida, Michigan, Illinois, California, Hawaii, etc. The best source that I have found that covers condo issues from soup to nuts „ and if you go on the condo board, you will go nuts but you will have a direct impact on the way the association is run „ is Condo Living 2Ž by Robert Meisner. The book pro-claims itself to be The Authoritative Guide to Buying, Selling and Oper-ating a Condominium.Ž It is certainly a must-read for anyone thinking to buy a condo and or to serve on its board. The reality is that if you have a condo issue, you might well need a nationally recognized condo expert, and judges and arbitrators like to hear from experts who are published in their field. Mr. Meisners bottom line: condo living can provide added security, social and recreational amenities which you could not otherwise afford; but condo living can make your life miserable if theres conflict with the condo board and association members. Let the buyer beware in buying a condo and get a good lawyer before you sign on the dotted line.Ž Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

COMMENTARYFixing the fencesHow are your fences?Mine need some work. When you let a fence get loose „ when you let it sag or fall „ the larger world gets in and the smaller world gets out and pretty soon you can t tell which is which. If youre trying to keep the bull separated from the cows and you let the fence go, for example, hell screw up your breeding pro-gram. Before long, hell cross the fence-line and go to work in the cow pasture. Suddenly, he becomes just another unregulated corpo-ration polluting the resources. Similarly, if youre trying to distinguish between the no-trouble-here talk that poli-ticians and appointed public officials so often spray around the countryside, and facts about how they wield the power and money you give them, you cant let the pub-lic records laws sag or fall. That is, unless you dont mind if the interests of lobbyists, cronies, campaign con-tributors, business partners and drinking buddies all take precedence over the inter-ests of you and your community. Those public record laws are fences that keep out such a misuse of government, which must be something State Sen. Jeremy Ring, a Broward County Democrat, under-stands. Hes sponsored the bill now moving through the Senate that would ensure three important functions. One, it would limit what you have to pay to get public records. A common govern-ment agency ploy to avoid compliance with public records laws is to charge a lot and go slow. Two, it would require private contractors to government agencies to notify the agency that hired them if they turn down a public records request. And three, it would redefine, clearly for all, which public records are accessible and which arent, based on existing court deci-sions, while requiring officials to be versed in public records rules. Theres a similar House bill, but its flight path through the 120-member House of Rep-resentatives remains decidedly uncertain. Without these laws „ these fences that protect our right to know „ we wont be able to judge our leaders, and either ask them to change or change them if they wont. All of this is what the late Democratic Gov. Reubin Askew insisted on, as well „ the man who died last week at the age of 85 after making desegregation a Florida reality and, in 1976, adding a Sunshine amendment to the 1967 open records laws, the ones that put Florida at the head of the line among states that tried to be transparent. Gov. Askew, often rated among the top governors in United States history, insisted that the financial records of all politicians, appointed public officials and candidates for office be open to the public, giving citizens a chance to judge them based on their deeds, not their no-trouble-here talk. Youve got to remember in government whose business youre doing: the peoples,Ž Mr. Askew explained in a 2009 reminis-cence. And if youre doing the peoples business, youve got to give them the tools to judge the product.Ž Over time, and since Gov. Askews day, roughly 1,000 exemptions have been made to open public records by the Florida legisla-ture, according to watchdog groups. And this year, several more bill proposals that would exempt records are in the works. The fence is breaking down all the time, even though some are fighting to fix it. I offer you this homely wisdom about fences not because Im an expert fence builder, but because we are now passing out of what somebody decided to call Sunshine Week. Sponsored by the American Society of News Editors beginning in 2005, Sunshine Week is not a ploy to sell you advertising. Its not a feel-good festival. Maintaining open records and a public understanding of their profound importance is a duty „ and it often costs newspapers money when they have to sue to get what the law already requires them to be given at little or no charge, and within 24 hours. In other words, they shed light on official behavior. As a metaphor for the open public records laws, therefore, sunshineŽ isnt bad. If you let the sun shine on the records of official behavior „ if you open the books to the light of day „ you can gauge how officials are using the power and money youve turned over to them. But I also like to think of those laws as fences that keep transparency in a safe and protected place, and secrecy in government „ in other words, palaver and nonsense „ out of public life. One of the finest reporters I ever knew understood this perfectly, and had to fight to maintain the fences between special inter-ests and veiled government, and the public right to know, throughout his 32-year career investigating government corruption for The News-Press, based in Fort Myers. In the mid-1970s, Lee Melsek and his newspaper were instrumental in opening personnel records of public officials, includ-ing their pay records, to the public. But to do it, he had to take on a county administrator who refused to hand them over. Not only that, but his paper had to back him by filing a lawsuit, which it subsequently won (Lavon Wisher vs. The News-Press Publishing Co.). As a result, Gov. Askew was more easily able to add the 1976 Sunshine Amendment to the Florida Constitution. Remarkably, none of this has anything to do, per se, with either conservative political thinking or liberal political thinking. To this day, it has to do with letting the people make educated choices about their government. The government created the sunshine and public records law because, it said, the business of government is the publics busi-ness,Ž Mr. Melsek once told me. The public owns that government. Everything that government does should be open „ transparent.Ž It reminded me of something else I used to hear him offer novice reporters on their first jobs „ the ones who showed even a little lick of passion for the hard and honor-able business of investigation. Remember this,Ž hed intone quietly, eyes as blue as flame, his lean form dressed in black shirt and trousers: Officials lie.

But a homemade memory jar is of interest because it tells a story. The jars can be any shape, but the most popular with collectors today are jars made from 19th-century jugs or bottles. The jug or bottle was covered with a sticky mate-rial. It could be plaster, clay, p utty or mortar. New ones are often covered with mod-ern epoxy glue. The creator placed small objects like stones, butt ons, broken glass, small figurines, watch parts, jewelry, doll heads, coins or even framed daguerreotypes in the plaster. Since the original idea of a memory jug is said to have started in Africa and related to water spirits, shells have long been popular. Traditionally the shells are broken to release the spirit of the deceased who inspired the jug. Today the jugs are considered folk art and sell for $50 to $300 at shows, but a few exceptional antique examples have brought up to $3,000. Most jugs can be dated by examining the things stuck in the plaster. Campaign b uttons, coins and toy parts often suggest a date, but remember that new jugs can be made using old parts. A small percentage of old or new jugs are finished with a coat of gold paint or lacquer. Many are pictured online. They may be called forget-me-not jugs, memory vessels, whatnot jars or even by the French name pique assiette.Ž Q: Im thinking of selling an old Steinway upright piano and Id like to give the buyer as much information as possible. It says Pat Nov 21 1893Ž with the serial number 79386Ž inside the flip-down panel. On the right side there is a gold stamp with gold coinsŽ that read Piano manufacturers to H.M. the Queen of England, H.R. Highness the Prince of Wales and H.R. Highness the Princess of Wales.Ž What can you tell me about my piano? A : Steinway & Co. was founded in New York City by Henry E. Steinway, a Ger-man immigrant. He was born Heinrich Steinweg and changed his name when he immigrated in 1850. He and his sons began making pianos under the Steinway & Co. name in 1853. The Nov. 21, 1893, patent is for improvements in string-frames for upright pianos,Ž and was granted to Henry Ziegler, a member of the Steinway family. The gold coinsŽ show that the company held royal warrants, which meant that they made pia-nos for members of the royal family. Queen Victoria granted the first royal warrant to the company in 1890. The serial number indicates that your piano was made in 1893. Steinway was bought by Paulson & Co. in September 2013. Q: My ceramic mantel clock is about 15 inches high and 13 inches across at the base. It has an ornate shape and is painted in vivid pink, yellow, green and white with large flowers and greenery. There is gilt trim around the dial, which has Roman numerals. The clock chimes and is key-wound. The back opens up. The clock is marked Ansonia Clock Co., New York, USA, Patent June 14, 1881Ž and also RoyalŽ above a crown over a shield with FAMŽ and 1755Ž inside it and the words Bonn, GermanyŽ beneath it. What can you tell me about this clock and its value? A: Ansonia Clock Co. was in business in southeastern Connecticut from 1850 to 1929. Royal Bonn is the trade name used on pottery made by Franz Anton Mehlem. He operated a pottery in Bonn, Germany, beginning in 1836. The number 1755Ž is the first year a pottery operated on the site. Villeroy & Boch bought the pottery in 1921, but it closed in 1931. The mark on your clock was used from 1890 to 1920 for clocks with Ansonia works and Royal Bonn cases. There are many Ansonia Royal Bonn clocks available. They sell for $500 to $750, depending on condition and the quality of the case and decoration. Q: I have a great number of toys from three gen-erations. My mother was born in 1899, I was born in 1926 and my daughter was born in 1964. The toys were stored in an unoc-cupied basement apartment. Unfor-tunately, one of the apartments concrete walls leaked, the hot water heater leaked and the basement carpets got soaked. The toys include three large furnished wooden dollhouses, many dolls, doll clothing, games and other toys made of wood, metal or cloth. Most have a musty smell. Is there a way to eliminate the odors? A: Special products that kill mold and mildew or prevent them from forming are available at hardware and home improve-ment stores. Move the toys into a dry room. Wash surfaces that smell moldy with a mild detergent solution. If that doesnt get rid of the odor, try using vinegar, water with a little chlorine bleach in it, or a commercial product meant to kill mold. Doll clothes and other textiles should be washed and dried in the normal way. Stuffed toys should be laundered and dried in a dryer at low temperature or dried in the sun. Sunlight helps remove the smell. Store the toys in a dry place that is not exposed to temperature extremes. Basements, attics and garages do not make good storage places for any-thing of value.

Decorating it are campaign buttons and badges, a war service ship-building medal, a Duluth, Minn., ship-building visitor’s badge, a china shoe, small anchor and other items from the 1930s. It sold at Old Barn Auction in Findlay, Ohio, for just $72, probably because it had a chip on the lid.

B3 XA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE What do you do when the economy is tanking and Mom s estate may be ripe for the picking? Never mind that Mom is still living and wants to leave a legacy for her family. Thats the question Palm Beach Dramaworks tries to answer in its production of Horton Footes Divid-ing the Estate,Ž which opens March 26. Set in 1987 Texas, Dividing the EstateŽ follows the family of Stella Gordon, a wealthy woman whose adult children do not see why they should not be able to maintain the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed. This piece speaks to a kind of a greed. Theres a greed because theres money involved, land involved,Ž said Avery Sommers, who makes her Dramaworks debut as Mildred, the familys sharp-tongued cook. The play benefits from Footes nimble storytelling ability.Avery Sommers cooks up a role in “Dividing the Estate”DRAMAWORKS DEBUTSOMMERS BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comSEE THEATER, B17 XSting sleeps.

Or is he? There is nothing highfalutin about Ms. Ellison, who was at the opening of the show. She is friendly and unassum-ing in person; perhaps that demeanor lends itself to creating a more intimate portrait.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSMy own much-needed dose of humilityWhen a friend recently offered to set me up on a blind date with a man named Lyle, I was delighted. Nervous, yes, but mostly excited. You re not freaking out?Ž my friend Sarah asked. Oh, no,Ž I said, waving a dismissive hand. I love dating.Ž She looked unconvinced.Seriously,Ž I said. Its fun to meet new people.Ž She laughed and shook her head.Plus ƒŽ Im embarrassed to tell you what I said next. Im good at it.ŽDont get me wrong. Im afflicted with the usual range of personal insecurities (and then some), but I enjoy dating and I think my enthusiasm is contagious. Not to mention, Ive been on enough dates in my lifetime to qualify for the romantic Olympics. The night of our date, Lyle showed up 15 minutes late. I smiled my best its-no-big-dealŽ smile and asked where we were headed. He just shrugged. Lets find a place in the neighborhood.Ž So we set off walking. I slipped into my usual first date chatter „ Where are you from? Where have you travelled? What do you do for a living? I silently congratulated myself on how smoothly things seemed to be going. We found a little restaurant around the block tucked back off the street. Christ-mas lights hung from the walls and a jukebox sat in one corner. The menu offered up hearty, home-style fair: roast beef, mashed potatoes, coconut cream pie. It was the kind of place that would make the perfect setting for a cute our-first-dateŽ story later on. Lyle looked over the menu. Want to split a slice of pie?Ž he asked. Could we be any more adorable? The waitress brought two forks and a piece of the best coconut cream pie Ive ever tasted. Lyle talked about his travels in Europe and South America while I admired his straight teeth and glossy hair. I sent up a silent prayer of thanks to our mutual friend for setting me up with this dreamy man. He was so dreamy, in fact, that I was surprised when he asked for the check as soon as we finished the pie. And equally confused when he walked me back as soon as we left the restaurant. No second stop for a cup of tea?Well,Ž he said when we reached the original meeting point. He gave me a quick hug and a kiss on the cheek. Thanks for coming out.Ž It felt abrupt, but I was sure things had gone swimmingly. When Sarah asked about the date the next day, I gave her my best mysterious smile. Well see,Ž I said.What I meant was: It was fantastic. This whole dating thing? I wanted to say. Easy as pie. But life is nothing if not ironic, and I like to think some karmic part of the cosmos got a good laugh out of what happened next. And what happened, you ask? Nothing. Not a word. No follow up. Not even a thanks but no thanks.Ž So much for my misplaced dating pride.

PUZZLE ANSWERS Maltz Jupiter Theatre sets auditions for next season SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Every hit stage production begins with auditions, and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is encouraging local profes-sional performers to try out. The first of the theater s auditions for the shows in its 2014/15 season, Spark Your Imagination, will take place in Jupiter on Friday, April 11, for Glengarry Glen RossŽ (onstage Feb. 8 … 22). Performers are asked to be ready to read passages from the script. They should bring a headshot and rsum. Other upcoming auditions in Jupiter include auditions for all of the other shows in the theaters 2014/15 season, including The ForeignerŽ (onstage Oct. 26 … Nov. 9), Fid-dler on the Roof (onstage Dec. 2 … 21), The WizŽ (onstage Jan. 13 … Feb. 1) and Les MisrablesŽ (onstage March 10 … April 5). As the largest regional theater in Florida, the theater is one of the areas top employers of both onstage and backstage talent, including directors, choreographers, designers, musicians, performers and stage crew. To cast its professional shows, the theater draws from a national and local talent pool. Of 94 stage roles needed during the 2013/14 season, 43 performers were from Flori-da. The remaining 51 performers were from New York and elsewhere. People have the misconception that talent can only be found in New York or other big cities … but talent exists everywhere,Ž said Andrew Kato, pro-ducing artistic director, in a prepared statement. Wed like to encourage local performers to read the casting informa-tion on the theaters website, find a role that interests them, make an appoint-ment, show up to auditions and let their talents be known. Our first priority is to employ talented actors from this area.Ž Between 400 and 700 people typically audition in New York for each of the theaters large-scale musicals, and as many as 250 people audition for its plays. However, the theaters leaders always give strong consideration to local per-formers due to their desire to support local talent. There are also financial incentives to hiring locally, since the theater is required to offer housing to any union performer outside a 50-mile radius. All directors are present at call-backs. There are so many opportunities to be seen at our theater,Ž Rachel Bla-vatnik, the theaters associate producer who coordinates casting, said in the pre-pared statement. Just like on Broadway, we follow Actors Equity Association (AEA) union requirements and host Equity Principal Auditions (EPAs), or union open calls. However, non-union actors can also attend these auditions and wait in line to be seen. Performers who are members of the union are encouraged to make an appoint-ment.Ž Since the theater is required to hold EPAs in two major cit-ies outside of South Florida, auditions for the theaters season shows also take place in Orlando and New York City. The theater is also a member of the Florida Professional Theatres Association (FPTA), which holds state-wide auditions every sum-mer … this year in Vero Beach. Ms. Bla-vatnik attends each year. The opportunities abound each year, from comedy and drama to big, splashy musicals,Ž Ms. Blavatnik said in the pre-pared statement. The needs are often very specific to the particular shows we are doing. This season, we have two large-scale classic musicals, a rock and soul musical, a heartwarming comedy and a cutthroat drama. There is great opportunity for all types of talented performers.Ž The theaters New York musical auditions often take place over five days, including a day for an open casting call, two days for agent submissions, a day for dance calls and a day for callbacks. Student auditions will be held on Sat., April 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the theaters fifth annual First Step to Star-dom audition day, with roles for dozens of students (ages 6 … 21). The day will feature casting for the theaters professional productions of the classic musicals Fiddler on the Roof,Ž The WizŽ and Les Misrables,Ž the comedy The Foreigner,Ž the new musical Through the Looking GlassŽ and a classic drama produced through the theaters high school mentorship program: The Crucible.Ž Full details of all of the theaters casting sessions can be found by visiting www.jupitertheatre.org and clicking on the auditions and submissionsŽ b utton on the side of the page.

AN ARTISTS LIFE In this series of occasional stories, visual and performing artists discuss their work habitsA native of Antwerp, Belgium, artist Serge Strosberg has lived and worked in Paris but now calls Palm Beach and New York City home. He has exhibited in Florida at the Elaine Baker Gal-lery in Boca Raton and the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens and the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. He also exhibited at Art Palm Beach and Art Wynwood. Mr. Strosberg is known for his skill at capturing people s expressions and emotions, together with his old master techniques. Among his works is a portrait of the U.S. District Court Judge Daniel T.K. Hurley, which hangs in the federal courthouse in West Palm Beach. What inspires you to work on your art? I moved to New York in 2008 and am daily inspired by the city and by the people I meet, whether on the streets or at social events. I meet many socialites, models and New York personalities. Originally from Belgium, I lived in France for 25 years. I graduated from LAcadmie Julian, the graphic design school in Paris where Matisse, Bon-nard, Lger and Gaugin all studied.Because Ive lived and traveled exten-sively in Europe and the United States, I see myself as a citizen-of-the-world.Ž One is free to be who they choose to be in New York City. If you want to walk around in pajamas, or scream at the top of your lungs, thats OK; nobody seems to mind. In fact, if any-thing, its encouraged. My works reflect the spectrum of city life and a cross-section of the people who inhabit this city. With my paintings, I try to convey a story that is at once immediate and of our time and one that spans the so-called human condition. I am also influenced by actual sociopolitical events that I read about in the news. Living in New York during the financial crisis on Wall Street and the subsequent Occupy Wall Street move-ment has made a strong impact on me and Ive tried to transmit my feelings through my latest series of work, The Gold Series.Ž The Gold SeriesŽ which I presented with Art Amalgamated at Art Palm Beach 2014, is an experimental body of work re-contextualizing key socio-political events that have been energiz-ing the world, particularly since the Great Recession of 2008. I depict the recent Wall Street excesses by creating very detailed and satirical paintings that leave the viewer with different interpretations. These luminal works of art are not literal but force the viewer to think about the omnipresence of materialism and power in American society. Occupy,Ž is a mystical painting representing protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement mixed with other international protests. Protagonists seem to float in the air, in limbo, waiting for the inevitable of coming back to earth. As an artist I was moved and mobilized by the short-lived OWS move-ment. I was also puzzled and deflated by the way these movements were crushed by the powers that be and the general inertia of the unsatisfied masses. As other artworks of the Gold series, the background is painted in a golden haze to emphasize the growing dispar-ity between the 1 percent and the 99 percent. Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? I am an observer of modern society. I am very curious and always keep my eyes and ears open for interesting visuals or people. I do on-line research on inter-net searching for inspiring images that I can decontextualize and transform. My previous series titled Agalmatophilia,Ž or Love of the Statue, was inspired by observations of my ever-changing neighborhood in SoHo and the high fashion vitrines in my neighborhood boutiques, which reflect the absurdity of society and ubiquitous marketing and fetishism that accom-pany them. I created large-scale paintings of half-mannequin/half-human and incor-porated modern technology with a multi-media approach to art juxtapos-ing iconic symbols of faith superim-posed on iconic portraits. I love to explore themes of transformation, questions of authenticity and themes of the other. I discreetly push boundaries, reveal subjects to him or herself and to his or her society and reveal secrets. In portraiture, the artist has to distinguish between fantasy and reality. As between two actors, there is a seduc-tion and ambiguity as well as anxiety and distance stemming from lack of trust. The metaphysical part of portraiture is to transcend the ambiguity and cap-ture the soul of a human being. Because people are complex, they never seem to be who they appear to be to us on the outside. People often take on the role that they think other people expect of them. So for me a tall, statuesque beauty may present that image, but once I start painting her, I often find the antithesis. When do you typically work? I have a loft space in SoHo and work every day all year-long. As an artist, I am constantly envisioning images in my mind and work diligently to put all my ideas on canvas. Many times Ill work on Sundays if I have a tight show deadline. As other people go to their offices, so I go to my studio and put in a full day of work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. I get my best ideas looking out my window onto Broadway, where the city never sleeps and is constant fodder for my imagination. I also like the city and its density. I can look out my window here on Broadway and see a whole world pass-ing underneath my fire escape. When do you know its time to put the work away? I stop painting when I have no more turpentine ƒ no seriously, it is never really over. Many times (like most artists, i.e., Titian) I retouch a painting a year later. I try to do my best to hone my skills and make an artwork that is visually and technically strong and moves peo-ple who see it. My recent Agalmatophilia SeriesŽ and my Expressionist of FashionŽ series are examples where I take risks with my subject matter and technique to avoid becoming formulaic or pan-dering to commercial interests. I want my work to be new and as different as possible from anything thats been done before. I value originality and bring a discerning viewpoint to all my work.

YesOne of the great things about the Muppets is their willingness, nay, insistence, on making fun of show business and themselves in a playful way. Accordingly, Muppets Most WantedŽ begins with a song called We re Doing A SequelŽ that includes the following line: Were doing a sequel/Thats what we do in Hollywood/And everybody knows that the sequel is never quite as good.Ž You cant joke like that unless youre doing something right. So sure, even though Muppets Most WantedŽ might not be quite as good as its 2011 predecessor, its a solid sequel thats equal parts delightful and funny „ exactly what a Muppet movie should be. With the Muppets once again a hot ticket, they embark on a world tour. Little do they know that tour manager Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) is the number two for Constantine (voice of Matt Vogel), the worlds most wanted criminal, who also looks exactly like Ker-mit (voice of Steve Whitmire). Constan-tine escapes from a Russian gulag led by Nadya (Tina Fey) and replaces Kermit on the tour. The oblivious Muppets „ even the smitten Miss Piggy (voice of Eric Jacobson) dont notice the difference. Meanwhile, Kermit is mistaken for Con-stantine and shipped to the gulag. As the tour moves through Berlin, Dublin, Madrid and London and jewel heists begin to trail the Muppets wher-ever they go, Interpol Inspector Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrel) and CIA Agent Sam Eagle (Mr. Jacobson again) track the culprits. But when youre asking the likes of Fozzie Bear (ditto Mr. Jacob-son), Animal (more Mr. Jacobson) and Gonzo (voice of David Goelz) for help, good luck hearing anything intelligent. They shouldve asked critics Statler (Mr. Whitmire again) and Waldorf (one more for Mr. Goelz), who will say anything to take the Muppets down. There are two types of cameos in Muppet movies. One has a celebrity appearing as him/herself, while the other has the talent play a small role, often with just one line. This movie has plenty of both. As themselves: Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett appear in the opening num-ber, Christoph Waltz does a waltz, and Salma Hayek teams with Gonzo for an indoor running of the bulls,Ž which is hilarious. Among those who appear in bit parts: Zach Galifianakis as a hobo, Stanley Tucci as a marksman, and Tom Hiddleston as an escape artist. And this barely scratches the surface; there are numerous other cameos, my favorite of which is James McAvoys because his is the easiest to miss. As for the actors with real roles, theyre appropriately in on the joke and dont miss a beat. Notable credit goes to screen villains Ray Liotta (GoodfellasŽ), Jemaine Clement (Men In Black 3Ž) and Danny Trejo (MacheteŽ) for singing and dancing in the gulag; to Ms. Fey for sing-ing well with a Russian accent and Mr. Burrell for singing well with a French accent; and to Mr. Gervais for being a near-perfect Muppets bad guy. With Muppets Most Wanted,Ž nothing is stale as the Kermit-led crew remains firmly entrenched in our good graces. The film was co-written by James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller and directed by Mr. Bobin, both of whom also worked on the 2011 film. If the franchise remains in their control, its in good hands.

When you re a defender, you see only half of your sides resources (the 13 cards you were dealt), as well as half the declarers resources (the 13 cards in dummy). This contrasts greatly with the perspective of the declarer, who has the advantage of seeing all 26 cards held by his side. He knows exactly which high cards and how many cards of each suit are missing, and can there-fore formulate a plan to make maxi-mum use of his assets. Consider this case where West leads the eight of spades in response to his partners overcall. East wins with the king and returns the seven of spades, won by declarer with the queen. South, in need of a ninth trick, leads the jack of hearts, and it does not matter which defender wins the trick. If West takes the jack with the king, he does not have a spade to return. And if West ducks and East wins with the ace instead, he can return a spade to establish his suit but has no way to regain the lead later to cash his spade winners. So declarer winds up making four notrump, losing only a spade and two hearts. With better defense, however, South would go down one. If East had played the seven of spades at trick one instead of the king, declarer could not have made the contract, regardless of what he did next. West would win Souths first heart lead and return his remaining spade, establishing Easts spades. Sooner or later, the defenders would score three spade tricks and the A-K of hearts to put South down one. Q

He is reaching toward his face, as if to wipe away the sleep from his eyes, which are closed. He is wearing a purple robe. There s the suggestion of a smile. Sharon Stone also appears to have just awakened. Her hair is tousled and she is dressed in cow-print pajamas. She clutches a teddy bear, and looks so innocent. Phyllis Diller opts for high camp in her image. Local lore has it that the fur-niture in her portrait came from Mar-a-Lago, and it is every bit as over the top as its owner. You do not realize how much time has passed since the 90s until you see the fresh-faced portrait of Chelsea and Hillary Clinton. Or portraits of actress Mariska Hargitay from two and three decades ago, one a thoughtful image of her with her dad, the other reminiscent of Madonna in her days as a Material Girl.Ž Those maternal-paternal images form a theme of this exhibition, with portraits of Jane Fonda and her son, Dustin Hoff-man and Kramer vs. KramerŽ co-star Justin Henry and Robert Mitchum with his daughter. Tennessee Williams looks positively carefree as he makes his way out a door, bag in hand, with nary a Blanche DuBois or Stanley Kowalski in sight. All of the portraits on display are exclusive to the Ann Norton, and were not shown during Ms. Ellisons other retrospective tour exhibitions this year. Jessica Tandy faces her husbands portrait across the room. The late actress wears a Napoleonic solders uniform and hat. The look is one of disdain. It is fitting. Apparently, she didnt like her husband receiving all the attention for his nude, recumbent portrait, complete with a woman dressed in servant garb waiting on him hand and foot. So much for the real drama.Every doll has its day in this exhibition, which includes some of Ms. Ellisons large-scale Barbie portraits, including one of the Mattel dolls dressed as Elvis. Its an intimate show that is made all the better if you follow it with a stroll through the gardens to see Ann Nor-tons monumental sculptures.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 B15 Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens presents woodblock, letter-writing exhibits SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens presents two new exhib-its through May 18, deeply rooted in Japanese history and culture Genjis World in Japanese Woodblock PrintsŽ and Keeping in Touch: The Culture of Letter-Writing in Japan.Ž Genjis World in Japanese Woodblock PrintsŽ will feature more than 50 woodblock prints and books depicting scenes from The Tale of Genji,Ž the worlds first novel. Written more than 1,000 years ago by the Japanese court lady Murasaki Shikibu, the epic novel was a popular source of inspiration for woodblock print and illustrated book artists in the 19th century. This exhibi-tion was organized by Scripps College in Claremont, Calif. The Morikami will host the exhibition Keeping in Touch: The Culture of Letter-Writing in Japan.Ž In Japan, letter-writing is a highly refined art form that is deeply rooted in poetry, steeped in metaphorical allusions and symbolic meaning. Letter-writing evolved from short, heartfelt lyrical verses, skillfully rendered, sometimes on scented paper, and hand-delivered to their intended recipient. The exhibit will present a variety of letter-writing forms from poems to postcards, and explores the myriad art forms that letter-writing brought about in Japan, such as lac-quer writing boxes, ink stones, brushes, elegant papers, and other stationary implements. Both exhibits are free with paid admission to the museum and gardens: adults, $14; seniors, $13; students, $11; children 6-17, $9; and free for Morikami members and children 5 and younger. Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens has been a center for Japa-nese arts and culture in South Florida since its opening in 1977. The Morikami invites guests to discover South Flor-idas heritage and its connection with Japan; explore a series of six diverse gardens inspired by a different histori-cal period and style of Japanese gar-dening; and experience traditional and contemporary Japanese culture through world-class exhibits, varied educational programs and seasonal events, bonsai display, pan-Asian cuisine and a distinc-tive Museum Store. Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The Morikami is located at 4000 Morikami Park Road in Delray Beach. For more information about the Morikami, its exhibitions, programs and events, visit www.morikami.org or call 495-0233. Q COURTESY PHOTO

Its a slice of life. Its really well-written, well-told stories of real small-town people and what they go through,Ž Ms. Sommers said. Thats a thread he has through his storytelling and his writing, and I just love his use of words and his choices of words. He really puts them there for the actors to munch on.Ž At times, Footes writing reads like poetry; this play also gives cause for reflection. I think it makes the audience sit up and take notice and realize that its in themselves,Ž Ms. Sommers said. Most of the team that will join Ms. Sommers onstage should be familiar to local audiences. William Hayes, Dramaworks producing artistic director, will direct a cast that includes Gregg Weiner, Elizabeth Dimon, Mary Stout, Deltoiya Goodman, John Archie, Rob Donohoe, Margery Lowe, Kim Cozort, Gretchen Porro, Leah Sessa, Kenneth Kay and Natalia Coego; several are Dramaworks veter-ans who will be as familiar to each other as their characters are, which brings us back to the play. Weve been in this household for a very long time. We know the people and how they act, how we talk to them and how they talk to us,Ž Ms. Sommers said. That dynamic is part of what keeps the play moving. There are some really cute moments in the play. Lucille is one of the charac-ters. I say I need help in the kitchen, and she says, Oh, OK, then she realizes who is serving whom.Ž In this case, the cook has serious acting and singing chops. Ms. Sommers starred on Broadway in Aint Misbehavin,Ž replacing Nell Cart-er and in Show BoatŽ as Queenie. She toured nationally as Jewel in The Best Little Whorehouse in TexasŽ with Ann-Margret and in ChicagoŽ as Matron Mama Morton with Chita Rivera and Joel Grey. On television, she created the recurring role of Regina Dansby on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns,Ž and the recurring role of Evelyn on Burt Reynolds B.L. Stryker.Ž She also co-starred with Mr. Reynolds and Reba McIntire in The Man from Left Field,Ž a CBS Movie of the Week. More recently, she has performed solo concerts at venues ranging from The Colony Hotels Royal Room Cabaret to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Ms. Sommers, who grew up in West Palm Beach and still calls it her home, loves performing in a drama and with this cast. Its a real joy to work with these actors because theyre the cream of the crop,Ž she said. She also was pleased to be making her debut at Dramaworks. I just love the new space. It so wonderful,Ž she said. The theater nearly tripled in size when it moved a couple of seasons ago to its current space on Clematis Street. She also has found working with the director, Mr. Hayes, to be satisfying. Id not worked with Bill ever, not really to do a piece,Ž she said. He started off, I dont know you as an actor, I know you as a singer.Ž Ms. Sommers has heard that before.Yes, I am an actress and I have done a lot of work and most of it has been for theater, but this is a real joy.Ž She continued: They treat us like gold. Its a joy to go to work. Its always good to have a job. It couldnt be better.

B22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 20-26, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOSanta Maria Valley winemaker explains the area’s uniquenessNapa Valley and Sonoma Valley get most of the glory, but if you re looking for quality you shouldnt neglect to turn south as well, to the Santa Maria Valley just north of Los Angeles. Just as Napa Valley is known for its fine cabernet sauvignon, the Santa Maria Val-ley makes top quality pinot noir and char-donnay. Among the best wineries from this district is Cambria Estate Winery. I recently spent some time talking with winemaker Denise Shurtleff to find out more about the winery and its products.Q. What makes Santa Maria Valley different from Napa and Sonoma, and how does that affect your wines?A. Our area is unique because it is the only transverse valley in the state „ it runs east to west, and there are no moun-tains between the valley and the ocean. The cool winds blow in daily starting around noon, giving the grapes a longer, cooler growing season. This produces great flavor development in both our pinot noirs and chardonnay. Additionally, our vineyards are on a mesa in the val-ley, running up to mountains in the back. This gives our soil great drainage. So the geography, soil types and breeze make our location unique, and thats what puts great character into our wines.Q. How would you describe your style of winemaking?A. Our wines are all estate bottled, all from our own vineyards. Many winer-ies contract with growers and can buy a great product, but it is not the same as when you can tweak it yourself in the vineyard. We try not to mask the flavor of the grapes, so we use minimal oak and let the grapes show through. We keep the production separate between the old vine and new vine, and between the different soil types and clones. All production is made in 59-gallon barrels. Our goal is to make each lot the best we can, and then blend the lots together for the best results. So we have different clones, different soil types, even different barrel toast and yeast for the different blocks of grapes.Q. Do you have any favorites among your wines?A. Wines are like children, so you cant have favorites, but each wine has distinct qualities. (Cambria makes two chardonnay wines, a viognier, a syrah and a number of pinot noirs.) We have 7 acres of viognier. I love making it because it is fun to work with. The juice when first pressed has little flavor, because all the phenols (flavor and aroma components) are in the skins. When Im cooking, I like to drink unoaked chardonnay, because it has lots of fresh fruit character, great mouthfeel and a crisp acidity. But I really like pinot noir, because it has so many layers of flavors. The first glass is totally different from the last glass. When the bottle is first opened its a bit closed in, but after it sits for a while the flavors integrate and it becomes silkier, with balanced fruit and a longer finish.Q. I see that your website has links for pairing wines and foods and tips for entertaining. Why do you think its impor-tant to offer wine drinkers that extra guidance?A. People always want to do things the right way, and wine is no excep-tion. Sometimes theyre uncomfortable because food pairing or entertaining with wine is something new for them. Other times the industry makes the experience intimidating and uncomfortable by build-ing a mystique about wine service. We get these questions all the time from consum-ers and started posting these sections on our website to help them.Q. Do you think a woman brings a different sensibility to making wine than a man does?A. I work with a lot of men and I never been treated differently by those I work with „ just by the public. My husband will not even go to tastings with me any-more, because everyone assumed he was the winemaker. Women can have sensi-tive palates, but then so do men. It takes all of us to make the wine.

Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE A trip to Italy turned things around for Marcello Fiorentino, owner and chef at La Sirena in West Palm Beach. The restaurant he now presides over as chef/owner had a few bumps along the path to its current status as one of the most respected Italian restaurants in town. Dad and Mom opened in 1986. I had worked a little bit with Dad „ he passed away in 1994. Mom had the res-taurant a full season on her own, and in 1996, I came to help her run the restau-rant.Ž They struggled to make the traditional continental-cuisine spot work, but things on the food scene were changing in America. Authentic Italian no longer meant pasta with red sauce and a meat-ball, he said. Business was not very good. We had suffered a couple of years „ actually, we were really sucking wind. It was to the point of changing the format, or selling the business. We were actually hoping CVS would come in and buy the property and put one here.Ž Instead, he said, I decided to make a go of it and consumed myself with learning and seeing what was out there.Ž Thats where the trip to Italy came in „ he and his spouse, Diane, who works the front of the house with him, went abroad in 1997. We spent time with my uncle, a retired restaurant guy. It kind of gave me a new perspective. When I came back, the menu just evolved from being continental to being an authentic Ital-ian. I hate that term, because most people still associate it with spaghetti and meatballs. We really wanted to recreate a simple, but authentic Italian restaurant.Ž The long-time clientele who were comfortable with the traditional menu from before had a hard time letting go of favorite dishes. They wanted escar-got and other clas-sics. We had escargot on the menu for 100 years,Ž he said with a sigh. I still cant get rid of it. But now, instead of doing the escargot on the ceramic plates you bake in the oven and serve with bread, we put it on top of polenta „ its a clas-sic Italian preparation.Ž Other dishes that were on the menu were revamped into a truer Italian for-mat. We mix in the veal and chicken dishes that were popular. But were doing dishes we never would have done before. For instance, we do a chicken cacciatore, but we serve dark meat chicken on the bone.

After age 65, your risk of falling is about one in three. These falls may result in broken bones or other injuries that lead to declining health, isolation and a loss of independence. Aging brings many physical changes, like slowed reaction times and a decreased sense of balance,Ž said David S. Ron-don, M.D., orthopedic surgeon at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Other factors that may contribute to falls by altering your sense of balance include certain medications, namely diuretics, sedatives and high blood pressure medications. Health conditions such as cata-racts, glaucoma, stroke, Parkinsons disease, congestive heart failure, heart arrhythmias, emphysema, arthritis and nerve dam-age may also increase your risk of falls.Ž The Orthopedic Program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center cares for patients requiring vari-ous levels of treatment.

Electric bikes “flatten the Earth” W hat comes to mind when you hear the term elec-tric bike?Ž Do you picture someone in poor physical shape loping along on a scooter-looking device because they are unable to ride on their own? Get ready to be amazed as you meet the newest generation of high-tech, smart-ly designed hybrid bikes spanning the markets from lei-sure to extreme sport.On Your Mark Performance Cen-ter is now carry-ing E-Motion bikes manufactured by one of the oldest and largest bicy-cle suppliers with over 100 years in the business … BH Bicycle Corpora-tion of Spain. In terms of style, functionality or perfor-mance, they are exceptional. According to Easy Motion USA, the e-bike business has been exploding in Asia and Europe. Now its the latest sensation in North America. Owners Matt and Julie Goforth explain that not all e-bikes are created equal. The electric components utilized in the Easy Motion Electric Bikes by BH are not rush-to-market like some lower end models, but instead are made by Samsung. The drive and crank components are manufactured by Shimano ensuring that the On Your Mark Perfor-mance team will be able to take care of any possible servicing you might need. All come with a five-year warranty on the entire bike and a two-year warranty on the lithium ion battery. Although many curious customers think that pedaling the bike recharges it, this is not the case. Matt Goforth explains, The physics behind trying to recharge the bike at the same time as you are pedaling would offset the benefits of the pedal-assist feature. The manufacturer explains that it would basically turn into an exercise bike and not go anywhere.Ž Simply plug the bike into a regular wall outlet to charge and ride for less than one cent a mile. This bike is per-fect for someone taking short 10-20 mile trips around town to run errands or an individual with a moderately ranged weekly work commute interested in sav-ing significant gas money. Forward thinking, ecologically minded customers realize these e-bikes offer the most cost-effective design on the road. The term pedal assistŽ means that you still do the work, but the bike responds by giving you power on demand. For example, the same effort you spent riding 15 mph on your regular pedal bike is now enhanced by the bike to help you go 20-25 mph with much more of a comfortable experience. For the average commuter, this means you are getting there in half the time with much less effort. A great local example of this feature would be going up and over the Blue Heron Bridge. This particular pedal assist bikes motor kicks in as soon as the bike starts going uphill, and it pushes you right up over the hill as long as you keep ped-aling,Ž explains Matt Goforth. The bikes function on a torque-based system. When the chain gets really tight from the pressure you put on the ped-als, the sensor kicks in which then gives draw on the motor and battery. The bike responds by providing you with just the power you need. If there is no tension on the pedals like when you are going downhill or with the wind, the system func-tions just like a regular bike. As soon as you touch the brake the motor turns off, so stopping safely and eas-ily is no problem at all. These bikes essentially flatten the earth,Ž explains Matt Goforth. Contact the professionals at On Your Mark Performance Center today to learn more. They currently have two exciting e-bike models in stock for you to preview: the NEO City perfect for commuters and the sporty NEO Cross which received the Best Design and Functionality Award at Eurobike 2011.

To screen or not to screen? It’s important to understand screening mammography guidelines BY ROBERT STICKLE, MDDirector of Breast Imaging, Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center T here is much confusion today for women regarding the different recommendations for screening mammography. At Jupiter Medical Center, we are dedicated to finding breast cancer early, offering women in Palm Beach and Martin Counties access to leading-edge technologies and innova-tions in the fight against breast cancer. We all know that the earlier breast cancer is detect-ed, the better the chance of survival.Every major American medical organization expe-rienced in breast care rec-ommends that woman start getting annual mammograms at age 40. Because one in six breast cancers occur in women in their 40s, stud-ies show that regular mam-mograms cut breast cancer deaths by approximately a third in all women 40 and over. Plus, 75 percent of all women diagnosed with breast cancer had no family history or factors that put them at high risk. At Jupiter Medical Center, we follow the American Cancer Societ ys screening guidelines for early detection of breast cancer: Q Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health. Q Clinical breast exam is recommended every one to three years for women in their 20s and 30s, and every year for women 40 and over. Q Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care provider. Breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20s. Q Some women … because of their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors … should be screened with MRI in addition to mam-mograms. Talk with your doctor about your history and whether you should have additional tests at an earlier age. Accredited by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at Jupiter Medical Center was the first facility in Palm Beach and Martin Counties to offer innovative new technology … 3D mammography (tomo-synthesis). 3D mammography is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected, pro-viding increased diagnostic accuracy and finding breast cancer at an earlier stage … which means more lives can be saved. Exams are performed on a digital mammography unit that takes multiple low-dose 3D images of a compressed breast from different angles. The 3D imaging capability allows radiologists to view breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time. This technol-ogy is extremely useful for all women, especially those who have dense breast tissue. The Breast Center team includes dedicated diagnostic breast radiologists, certified technologists, breast health specialists and a patient naviga-tion team providing education and support. Women in our community can rest assured knowing that the latest breast cancer diag-nostic and treatment technol-ogy is available through Jupiter Medical Centers Comprehensive Breast Care program, which was the first program in Palm Beach County to be accredited by the National Accredi-tation Program for Breast Centers. The program is comprised of the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center for diagnosis, and the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program for treatment. In addition to the Jupiter location, Jupiter Medical Cen-ters Niedland Breast Screen-ing Center is open at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens. The Niedland Breast Screen-ing Center offers every patient 3D mammography in quick, 30-minute appointments for your convenience. Bone densitometry, advanced body composition and blood draws are also available. For more information, see jupiterbreastcare.com. To schedule an appointment, call 561263-4414. Jupiter Medical Center also offers Wellness in Motion (WIM), our mobile mammography and health and wellness unit that travels around areas of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. WIM appears at a variety of locations around the community, making it more convenient than ever to get your annu-al screening mammogram.

First talk with your doc-tor. You may need to have your vision as well as your balance and movement checked. Your prescription medications may need to be changed. Many people can reduce their risk of falls by exercising, improving their bal-ance and implementing safety measures at home,Ž explains Dr. Rondon. One of the best exercises to help prevent falls is walking regularly. Water or pool exercises can also be effective by help-ing you practice the skills needed for walking.Ž Improving your balanceTo improve your balance and coordination, practice standing on one leg for short periods. You can hold onto a chair while you re doing this to help keep your balance. You also might consider taking Tai Chi classes. This ancient Chinese discipline involves slow, dance-like movements that help relax and strengthen muscles and joints. One study indicated that Tai Chi may help reduce your risk of falls by more than 47 percent.Home safety tipsSome simple changes in your home also can reduce your risk of falls. Heres a checklist: € Keep electrical and telephone cords out of the way. € Arrange furniture so you can easily move around it. € Dont use throw rugs. All carpeting should be secured to the floor. € Use a stepstool to reach something from a high shelf or move items to lower shelves. € Install grab bars on walls around the tub and beside the toilet. € Use nonskid mats or adhesive strips on surfaces that will get wet. € Put a light switch and the telephone within reach of your bed. € Use a nightlight between the bedroom and bath. € Keep stairs and hallways clear of clutter. € Install handrails on both sides of the stairway. € Wear rubber-soled shoes that have low heels. To learn more about what you can do to prevent falls, please visit www.pbgmc.com.

healthy living MARCH 2014 C5 3D technology provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for dental implant surgery I n the past, placing dental implants involved a lot of guesswork. Dentists used to rely on traditional black-and-white X-rays, which displayed only two-dimensional images, inac-curate in size and detail. The dentist could not see the bone, soft tissues or surrounding vital structures beneath the gums, so he would have to approximate the location of surgical implant placement. X-rays are fine for finding decay in teeth, but for dental implant surgery, 3D CT scans are now considered the standard of careŽ in modern dentistry. A CT scan is a volumetric image of your teeth, jaws, and surrounding vital structures. It shows, in high resolution and unparalleled detail, structures not visible with traditional X-rays. 3D CT scans provide both three-dimensional and cross-section views that are much more accurate than traditional two-dimensional X-rays. These 3D computerized images provide detailed views of the facial structures that enable a qualified dentist to determine the quantity and quality of bone as well as bone density where the implants will be placed. Vital structures such as nerves and sinuses are precisely located to add a great mea-sure of safety not offered with traditional X-rays. With a 3D CT scan, the doctor can properly assess your specific case to deter-mine if you re eligible for dental implants, whether bone grafting is necessary and plan precisely where to place the implants With this information, the dentist can determine the proper treatment approach for each individual patient, including the correct implant type, size and position for optimal implant placement. These scans make implant placement more efficient and predictable while dramatical-ly reducing the time a patient spends in the dental chair. Cone beam CT technology emits very small amounts of radiation for the CT scan. In fact, the imaging requires less radia-tion than a traditional X-ray and the cone beam technology emits 80 to 100 times less radiation than a traditional medical grade CT scan of the same area.You are seated in an open area unlike an MRI scan-and the CT scanner moves around your head. The scan will take place in the dentists office and takes only 19 seconds.„ Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

Saving lives at the speed of flight A child in Miami needs a life saving operation only available at Boston Chil-dren s Hospital. This is a real life event and life saved at the speed of flight. This case involves a child who was born with an undevel-oped heart valve. Inoperative due to the small size and frail condi-tion of the child, this child was unable to play or thrive. However, thanks to modern medicine there is hope: A specialist at Boston Childrens can perform micro surgery. Unable to travel by scheduled airline due to poor oxygen saturation and general weakness, Air Treks Flight Coordinators worked with case managers, nurses, doctors and the childs social worker, to develop a patient transport plan. Partnering with the pediatric transport specialist of Miami Life-Flight we provided a jet equipped as a flying intensive care unit, with an on board paramedic along with the Miami LifeFlight team consisting of a transport nurse and respiratory therapist. On the day of the flight, the medical team escorted the child and mom from the Miami hospital to Miami International Airport (MIA) via ground ambulance. We then boarded the jet, departing MIA for the 2.5-hour nonstop flight to Boston. Arriving at Boston Logan airport, our aircraft was met by a ground ambulance to transport all involved to Boston Childrens where a specialty team waited to perform the life saving surgery. Several months later we returned to Boston to fly home an energetic and happy child and most grateful mom. Thanks to many caring professionals, this child will grow and thrive and enjoy a happy life. Thirty six years and thousands of air ambulance flights have allowed Air Trek to participate in saving many lives at the speed of flight. Behind every memorable moment such as these, is a company and systems set in place to make sure that patient transports worldwide are carried out as planned. Air Treks foundation consists of a 36-year-old, family business whose formula for success has remained the same for years: Focus on being safety-cen-tered while providing the ultimate in patient care. Air Trek owns and operates seven aircraft including pressurized twin engine aircraft, Citation jets, and a Westwind II jet. Each aircraft is fully equipped and staffed to function as a flying critical care unit allowing us to provide the best care for our patients. Air Trek differs from other Air Ambulance services in that we own the aircraft, which enables us to have direct operational control of all aspects of the patients transport. The patients family, friends, and pets may also travel aboard the air-craft at no additional charge, pending the availability of seats. Air Treks Flight Coordinators can explain the different seating capabilities for each individual aircraft „ then design a personalized and specific plan to meet the transport needs for the patient and their family members. Knowing we help to save lives at the speed of flight is often the most rewarding part of our business.

He or she tells you its not clear whats going on and sends you for a magnetic resonance imag-ing (MRI) study of your lumbar spine. The study comes back showing one or two herni-ated intervertebral discs. (Interverte-bral discs are cartilaginous shock absorbers interspaced between pairs of spinal vertebras.) Your doctor informs you that you have her-niated discs in your backŽ and pre-scribes medications and a course of physical therapy. Your doctor may even refer you to an orthopedic surgeon to evaluate the need for surgery on your back. Now, all of these recommendations may be necessary. Or none of them may be necessary and all thats needed is some rest and an exercise rehabilitation program that you could do on your own if you were given the proper instruc-tions. The culprit here is how the pres-ence of the herniated disc or discs is interpreted. Its important to remember that not all herniated discs are a problem requir-ing a solution. In fact, a sizable propor-tion of such disc herniations (30 percent or more) represent the progression of natural processes and are not a problem at all. But many family doctors and even specialists are not appropriately trained in accurate differentiation among the various possibilities. When faced with MRI evidence of a herniated disc, such doctors see it as a disorder or dis-ease that needs to be treated and fixed. Such an approach results in significant stress and leads to unnecessary proce-dures and financial hardship for many patients. Given the frequency of occurrence of such instances of over-diagnosis,Ž how can a person with back pain expect to receive appropriate care? Of course, people as patients are usually not in a position to be able to overrule their doc-tors recommendations. The answer lies in obtaining relevant information. Let your doctor know youre aware that up to one-third of normal persons have herniated discs, and ask whether its possible that your disc herniation is in fact unrelated to your back pain and merely an incidental finding. Further, if your back pain is not accompanied by leg pain radiating below your knee, it may be that the disc herniation is not affecting spinal nerve roots and may be treated by very conservative measures such as rest followed-up with exercise. Thus, not all disc herniations have the same impact on a persons health. Some represent normal findings, even if they are present in a person who has back pain. Let your doctor explain to you exactly why your particular prob-lem requires more than watchful wait-ing. Your local chiropractor will be able to provide you with the very best expert advice and recommendations for any necessary treatment.
