Charitable giving … and the chari-table deduction … is a lifeline to individu-als and communities in need, generating more than $1 trillion every year in the form of jobs and services. One in 10 Americans works for a nonprofit organi-zation, accounting for approximately 13.7 million jobs receiving roughly 9 percent of wages paid in the U.S. The chari-table sector has thus plenty to talk about to lawmakers who may be unfamiliar with philanthropys breadth and depth in affecting the lives of Americans, includ-ing the benefits of philanthropy enjoyed by their own constituents. In the past, many foundations chose to skip collaring lawmakers in the annu-al blitz on Washington, leaving the task up to the nations larger foundations. A list of competing priorities and aversion to foundation forays into public policy made it easy to stay at home and let others do the talking; but that is about to change in a big way. The reason is the 100-year-old charitable tax deduction is under threat. Deficit hawks are poised to take a wrecking ball to federal tax policy and the charitable tax deduction is on their doom list for destruction. If Congress merely plucks at the feathers of charitys golden goose or elimi-nates the tax benefit entirely „ either way „ the consequences are rife for the charitable sector. That is because the charitable deduction is a powerful incentive toward encouraging individu-als to donate a portion of their income or assets in support of worthy causes. Millions of Americans are encouraged by the tax incentives to take the plunge and write a check „ more often and in larger amounts „ than they might oth-erwise be convinced is the right thing to do. Sustaining the charitable deduction is thus a big deal in terms of the role it plays in fostering a climate of giving that elevates doing well by doing good as a national pastime. Just ask any financial planner and wealth advisor in Palm Beach County about the tools in their war chest to help their clients preserve their assets and charitable giving is a no-brainer. According to Giving USA, those who itemized their charitable contributions were responsible for 81 percent of total estimated giving (nearly $229 billion) by individuals in 2012. For every dollar a donor receives in tax relief for his or her donation, the public typically receives three dollars of benefit. This three-to-one-leverage generates a bounty of private dollars for public purposes. It is an all-around good deal for charities everywhere and provides funding for all kinds of causes, services, and initiatives, including education pro-grams, the cultural arts, the social safety net, health services, and conservation of our natural resources; and most Ameri-cans agree that Congress shouldnt try to fix something that clearly isnt bro-ken. According to a United Way survey, people really do understand the value and role of charitable deductions in fostering quality of life in our commu-nities. Americans want it to continue and the vast majority agrees reducing or eliminating the charitable tax deduction would harm charities and the people who benefit from the services they pro-vide. Their concern is legitimate about the potential of negative fallout from messing with the charitable deduc-tion. Of those who indicate they would reduce charitable giving if the charita-ble deduction is eliminated, the major-ity (62 percent) say they would have to reduce their contributions by a sig-nificant amount … by 25 percent or more. So its not too big a leap to understand why two out of every three Americans (67 percent) oppose reducing the tax benefits of the charitable tax deduction. In addition to their advocacy to sustain the charitable deduction, founda-tions will use this years annual meet-up in Washington to underscore the pivotal role of the independent sector in mak-ing a fragile democracy work better for everyone. Vikki Spruill, President and CEO of the Council on Foundations, drove that message home in welcoming grantmak-ers to the nations capital. ƒWe need to remind our elected leaders that philan-thropy cannot replace the role of gov-ernment and that government is part of the solution.Ž She goes on to say Grover Norquists notion of shrinking govern-ment to the size where we can drown it in a bathtubŽ wont lead to the kind of quality of life that a strong, flexible, efficient government has a role in sup-porting Ž and that foundations facilitate with charitable giving. Eliminating the charitable deduction, like advocating the demise of government, throws the baby out with the bathwater.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINION amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly U.S. sailors and Marines allege Fukushima radiation sicknessThree years have passed since the earthquake and tsunami that caused the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The tsunamis immediate death toll was more than 15,000, with close to 3,000 still missing. Casualties are still mount-ing, though, both in Japan and much farther away. The impact of the Fuku-shima nuclear meltdown on health and the environment is severe, compounded daily as radioactive pollution contin-ues to pour from the site, owned by the Tokyo Electric Power Company, TEPCO. In an unusual development, more than 100 U.S. Marines and Navy sailors have joined a class action suit, charging TEPCO with lying about the severity of the disaster as they were rushing to the scene to provide humanitarian assis-tance. They were aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and other vessels traveling with the Reagan, engaged in humanitarian response to the disaster. The response was dubbed Operation Tomodachi,Ž meaning Operation Friendship.Ž Lt. Steve Simmons is one of the plaintiffs. Before Fukushima, he was physi-cally robust. Eight months later, he suf-fered inexplicable health problems. He said on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, that, while driving to work: I blacked out and drove my truck up on a curb. Following that, I started com-ing down with what I thought was just maybe a flu, started running fevers. I dropped about 20 to 25 pounds unex-pectedly and then started experiencing night sweats, difficulty sleeping.Ž He was hospitalized three times. Doctors dismissed his concerns about possible radiation poisoning. Three days later, after I was discharged, I was back in the hospital because my lymph nodes start-ed swelling, and still running constant fevers as high as 102.9.Ž In April 2012, his legs buckled under him while he was hospitalized. He has relied on a wheel-chair ever since. He will be allowed to medically retireŽ this coming April. This is the second attempt to sue TEPCO on behalf of these sailors and Marines. The first lawsuit had eight plaintiffs and was dismissed for techni-cal reasons based on the courts lack of jurisdiction. By June of 2013, we had 51 sailors and Marines who had contacted us with various illnesses,Ž lead attorney Charles Bonner explained, including thyroid cancers, testicular cancers, brain cancers, unusual uterine problems, excessive uterine bleeding, all kinds of gynecological problems, problems that you do not see in a pop-ulation of 20-year-olds, 22-year-olds, 23-year-olds, even 35-year-olds. ... So, now we have filed a class action for approximately a hundred sailors.Ž As news of the lawsuit spreads, many more will likely join in. The USS Reagan had at least 5,500 people on board when off the coast of Japan. You might wonder why the group doesnt sue their employer, the U.S. Navy, as well. The responsible party for these young sailors injury is the Tokyo Electric Power Company, the fourth-largest power company in the world,Ž Bonner explained. Tokyo Electric Power Company failed to tell the public, including the Navy, that they were in an active meltdown. They had a triple meltdown following the earthquake and the tsunami. They didnt have batteries. They didnt have backup power. They didnt have any kind of auxiliary water supply to cool these reactors down.Ž I interviewed Naoto Kan in his offices in Tokyo last January. He was the prime minister of Japan at the time of the disaster. Kan immediately set up a control center to manage the nucle-ar crisis. Present at the center was a TEPCO executive. Kan told me, From what I was hearing from the head-quarters of TEPCO, and in particular from Mr. Takeguro, who was the former vice president, was, almost no accurate information was being conveyed about what was actually the situation on site.Ž Frustrated with the stonewalling, Kan flew to the plant to discuss the situation with workers on site. Once staunchly pro-nuclear, Kan now advocates for a nuclear-free Japan. The ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima should serve as a warning to the world. Instead of following the wisdom of Naoto Kan, President Barack Obama is committing public funds to build the first new nuclear power plants in the United States in more than 30 years. In the wake of Fukushima, Obamas Nuclear Regulatory Commission put out talking points designed to diminish growing public concern with the safety of nuclear power plants in the U.S. NBC News obtained the NRCs internal emails instructing staff to downplay safety risks. U.S. nuclear plants are not safe. The U.S. sailors and Marines of Operation Tomodachi deserve their day in court. The U.S. public deserves an honest assessment of the grave risks of nuclear power. 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. Dumbing down the SAT It turns out that SAT words were too abstruse. The College Board is updating its iconic test yet again in ways that are indistinguishable from dumbing it down. The old vocabulary words are out, the math is easier, guessing is no longer punished in the scoring „ and were supposed to believe that the test is better than ever. The SAT, relied on heavily in college admissions, has long been attacked for not producing sufficiently egalitarian results. The multiple-choice test has been accused of everything from rac-ism to classism. It is almost certainly the most hated exam in America, and the easiest way to placate the critics is simply to make it less exacting. The last round of changes 10 years ago eliminated the analogies (e.g., zenith : nadir :: pinnacle : valley) and instituted an essay. This was supposed to be an upgrade, but the mandatory essay is now being discarded. Peter Wood of the National Association of Scholars describes it as a decade-long experiment in awarding points for sloppy writing graded by mindless formulae.Ž The new SAT will move away from what a reporter in The New York Times calls „ obviously relying on his read-ers knowledge of old SAT vocabulary „ esotericŽ words. Instead, the test will emphasize evidence-based read-ing.Ž The head of the College Board says an example would be an excerpt from an old speech by Rep. Barbara Jor-dan in which she said that the impeach-ment of Richard Nixon would divide people into two parties. Students tak-ing the test would then have several choices for what Jordan meant by the word party.Ž (Students answering a gathering to celebrate an occasion,Ž or to drink with friends,Ž will presum-ably get no credit.) The SAT is called an instrument of privilege because students from high-er-income families perform better. But parental educational attainment tracks with parental income, and highly edu-cated parents will inevitably pass along their advantages to their kids. It is not in the power of the SAT to change this. As Robert VerBruggen of the website RealClearPolicy writes, Income gaps are evident on basically every academ-ic measure we have.Ž The SAT is hardly perfect. It isnt strictly an aptitude test: The more you read and the more math you know, the better you are going to do. Maybe we should go all the way and use achieve-ment tests instead? But that has its own problems, as Howard Wainer of the University of Penn sylv ania pointed out in his book Uneducated Guesses.Ž How much does proficiency in one subject area weigh against another? And this doesnt help if a student is in a rotten school that teaches nothing. The SAT aims to predict first-year performance in college, with only mod-est success. But with its broader, more general approach, the SAT provides different information about students than either GPA or achievement tests. It is a useful tool. At the end of the day, the problem isnt the SAT, its ourselves. We have to do a better job raising and educating kids. That is much harder than com-plaining about the SAT, and the College Board cant do them for us. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

PET TALESBeggars = losersTeach your dog that beggars never win BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERUniversal UclickShe stops traffic in one of the most touristed towns in California. Standing on her hind legs, paws posed prettily in front of her, with a pleading expres-sion that could melt the hardest heart, our dog Harper has been the focus of many photographs as we dine outdoors in Laguna Beach. Passersby ask in awe, How can you resist that face?Ž My husband and I just laugh. After living with her for six years, we are inured to her adorable begging. Shes a cavalier King Charles spaniel, so trading on her charm is second nature to her. It doesnt get her much, because we are about as hard-hearted as cavalier owners come, but it is always entertaining to watch. Well, OK, I confess: She gets the occasional french fry or bit of bread. But there are rules. Q Begging at the table at home is never rewarded. Ever. Our dogs know that the best way to get food is to wait patiently on the sofa until meals are over and then hope for bites of leftovers. Q Begging during meal preparation is not rewarded per se, but calm, out-of-the-way watchfulness may be rewarded with a piece of bell pepper or cauli-flower in exchange for a sit, spin, down or other trick.Q Paws may not be put on people at the table or in the kitchen. Not ever. Guests are firmly instructed not to permit this.Q At restaurants, the aforementioned french fry or crust of bread appears magically on the ground when Harper isnt looking „ and, I might add, when shes not begging. The behavior that is most likely to earn manna from heaven is lying quietly, not paying attention to us. Teaching your dog not to beg is a matter of consistency. Dogs do what is rewarding to them, so if you „ or your toddler in a high chair „ give him food from the table when hes a puppy because hes just so gosh-darn cute or a conve-nient receptacle for unwanted broccoli, hes going to continue that behavior into adulthood, no matter how hard you try to extinguish it. Its a lot harder to teach a dog to break a habit than it is to not establish the habit in the first place. What else can you do? My pal and colleague, dog trainer Mikkel Becker, has some great suggestions. Mikkel lives with pugs, who are equal to cava-liers in their begging ability, cuteness and manipulation skills, so she knows whereof she speaks. Q Make the dinner table a dog-free zone. Teach your dog to go to his bed, a mat or his crate when meals are served. Its a great opportunity for him to prac-tice a long down-stay. If necessary, use a baby gate or other barrier to prevent him from crashing your dinnertime do. Q To sweeten the deal, give him a stuffed Kong or food puzzle to occu-py his time. That way, he doesnt feel deprived, and you are rewarding him for being away from the table. Q Feed him first. If he has already eaten, hell be less interested in your food when you sit down at the table, especially if you ignore his longing looks. Q Finally, never give attention for begging. No laughing (I know; its hard not to), no talking to the dog, no yelling at him. Attention, even if its negative, just reinforces the behavior. If you dont want to see begging, then quietly and calmly take your dog to another room or to his crate and leave him there until the end of the meal. Hell learn that begging is a bone-a-fide route to disap-pointment. Q This dog has perfected the art of begging, but she knows it doesn’t come with an y rewards at the dinner table. >> Daphne is an 8-year-old spayed Pit Bull mix.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYmakes it home by curfew. She has found a clean house makes her feel clean. Making her bed in the morning makes her feel good about herself. Living with other women in recovery helps her with her self-esteem, her feelings of isolation, despair, wasted years. I get it. People dont want drug addicts, thieves, transients living in their area,Ž says Paige, touching on the inflamed social fray over the regulation of sober houses. But my sober home saved my life.Ž As much as sober houses may be unwelcome, Paige says, Theyre needed.Ž Sober houses are group homes for people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Most people liv-ing in sober houses are fresh out of detox, looking for some sense of sanctuary as they transition back into a life of sobriety. They come from all brackets, from all over the country. Many say they cant go home to a family thats at the end of their rope, or back to an abusive relationship. They say thats the last place they need to be, thats the first place where theyd use again. So they turn to a sunny, detox destination „ those in the industry say its Florida or California, pick oneŽ „ and hope the beaches and peer support will carry them through. In Florida, anyone can rent out any house and call it a sober house. Critics say some sober house opera-tors are more concerned with making money than helping those in recovery, and pack people into a house, bringing noise, traffic and reckless behavior to single-family neighborhoods. Individuals in recovery are protected under federal fair housing and disability laws, but neighbors to sober houses say they want protection, too. Such voices became the genesis of a proposed state law, under deliberation in the Florida legislative ses-sion, worded to regulate sober houses and protect people living in them. Opponents say the original legislation may have been designed to discriminate against sober house residents. Sober houses have been surfacing in South Florida for decades, predominately in Broward and Palm Beach counties, with a notorious accumulation of sober houses in Delray Beach. Delray officials esti-mate there are at least 225 sober homes within the 16-square miles of their city. They believe sober houses are proliferating, but theres no way to prove it. Thats the problem, thats why they support regula-tion, they say. Allyson Chambers, director of operations for three sober house locations across Palm Beach County, says public perception paints the picture of a sober house as a place where people are still using drugs and alcohol, stealing from their neighbors. She feels the stigma sticks, whether someones high on a sub-stance or not. Everyone is so afraid of acknowledging that they have been touched by (addiction), whether they have a daughter, a friend, a colleague, someone has been touched by this disease,Ž Ms. Chambers says. Theyre in so much fear. And were just someones daughter, someones mother, someones friend, some-ones colleague, trying to get better.Ž There are a total of 25 beds in the sober houses Ms. Chambers oversees and those beds are for women only. The women are required to make a 90-day com-mitment, but Ms. Chambers says they tend to stay six months. Rent ranges from $1,000 to $3,500 per month. Ms. Chambers says 25 percent of residents receive scholarships, because shes unwilling to say no to a woman whos willing to do the work. They do deserve to be in beautiful neighborhoods. Theyre doing beautiful things,Ž Ms. Chambers says. Myself, I would prefer to live next to people that are working a program, not just abstaining from drugs and alcohol, but trying to better themselves as human beings, versus neighbors that have parties every Saturday and are making a ruckus.Ž Ms. Chambers says if she were out to make money, shed be selling pharmaceuticals. If neighbors hear noise coming from her sober houses, its laughter. Carl Flick found out there was a sober house in his neighborhood by the noise. Sitting in his backyard, he was privy to intimate, inappropriate conversations. Mr. Flick went to the operators of the sober house, asking them to make a rule and ban cellphone talk-ing in the backyard. I was forceful yet diplomatic and consistent: This must be solved,Ž he says. What happened was we drove the noise out of the backyard and into their front yard,Ž leading another neighbor to complain. Besides the noise, Mr. Flick says other neighbors have been bothered by the traffic. He remembers one neighbor remarking, Its like a house of prostitution, theres so much traffic.Ž Overall, Mr. Flick feels fortunate compared to neighbors of irresponsible sober houses. We dodged a bullet,Ž he says. But even though weve had com-plaints and been able to resolve them, we are still unprotected.Ž Mr. Flick fears the absence of legislation could beckon more sober houses to the neighborhood. He wants equity and he wants minimum distance requirements. If the neighborhoods have to accept this, then we want to make sure that theres equal distribution, that theres not an over agglomeration,Ž he says. And right now, we have no protection against that.Ž Mr. Flick feels the proposed legislation may create more problems by being inadequate legislation. We want the state Legislature to really do their homework, because what theyre doing is a knee-jerk reaction. Welcome to Florida. Tallahassee. They dont really vet the issue properly, they just quickly create legislation,Ž he says. The legislation: Twin bills were filed in the state Senate and House of Representatives on Monday, Jan. 6. As of Monday, March 24, Senate Bill 582 has largely remained the same: Legislation would require the registration of sober houses through the Depart-ment of Children and Families, disclosing the number of individuals living at the sober house. Sober house operators would be required to give 48-hour notice of eviction or provide alternate shelter to tenants in an effort to prevent homelessness. DCF would conduct background screenings of sober house owners/opera-tors as an effort to prevent seedy situations. The legislation would authorize DCF to conduct inspections. Opponents argue DCF agents could enter at any time without warrant. Advocates say agents would only inspect upon certification or com-plaint. The Senate bill has yet to pass appropriations. A timely investigation by The Miami Herald under-scores DCFs desperation for money and staffing, shining light on the link between substance abuse and child welfare. House Bill 479 was amended by the Healthy Families Subcommittee to create a voluntary certification program for sober houses and sober house operators, with the caveat that treatment providers would only refer patients to certified sober houses. A list of all certified sober houses and sober house operators would be published on the DCF website, making addresses very much public record. The initial bill filed was a Trojan Horse of discrimination under the guise of consumer protection,Ž says Jeffrey Lynne, a zoning attorney in Delray Beach. You have to look at your legislation. Are you look-ing to protect sober-house residents or single-family neighborhoods? If your focus is the residents, here you go, put a bow on it. If thats not your focus, its illegal.Ž Mr. Lynne sees the regulation of sober houses as a civil rights issue. He says hes not advocating, hes speaking the law. When he defends sober houses, his words get heated. He says the more cities fight him, the more he will entrench himself in representing the recovery community. Bring (civil rights) up in the context of the recovery community and people go, How do you compare people in recovery to African Americans or gay rights? Ž he says. I dont need to.

The ADA was passed in 1990. Mr. Lynne stresses the proximity of these dates to show there was a problem. He says people were not treating each other with compassion because it took another federal law of great magnitude to demand people do so. He feels such laws are still needed to remind people to treat each other with respect. He says he has had a woman curse at him and spit on him at a public hear-ing, where he was representing someone who wanted to bring a residential recovery program into Delray. Theres a big public policy debate that we are not prepared to have as a country, and that is, what do you do with people who are addicted to substances,Ž he says. We as a people continue to ostracize them and alienate them.Ž Though the language in the proposed state law has been crafted to protect persons living in a sober house,Ž Mr. Lynne says theres a difference between saying it and meaning it. In a recent newsletter, state Rep. Bill Hager, R-Boca Raton, conjures the scene of residents who have scraped and saved all their lives to live in a safe, mid-dle-class neighborhood with their children „ to live the American dream „ when one day, out of nowhere, a sober house arises: Slowly, pr operties near their home begin to have a flurry of activity: drug transactions within feet of where their children play, people coming and going at all hours of the night, screaming in the early morning, catcalls directed at preteen girls and police presence on a nonstop basis ƒ Their previously safe and quiet neighborhood is physically threatened with the arrival of this poorly managed business,Ž a sober house. In a phone call from Tallahassee, Rep. Hager adds soiled mattresses and defecation to the scene. Addressing accusations of discrimination, he says, If it comes down to a conflict between somebody who injects himself, by his own choice, with heroin, and a child, I will always come down on the side of a child.Ž Rep. Hager says some sober houses are well run, but many are not. He says he does worry about individu-als, recovering addicts and alcoholics, who are abused in sober houses, kicked out on the street after shady operators take their money. He says sober houses are proliferating because theyre profitable. Anyone can buy a house, lure the vulnerable to detox in the Florida sun, stack bunk beds in the garage and take their money to the bank. Rep. Hager says any time big moneys involved, there will be opposition to regulation. From day one, he has encountered resistance to his bill, but says he has received signed letters from 125 elected officials, which shows him, theres significant inertia, some-thing must be done. Michael Weiner, the founding attorney of the Delray firm where Mr. Lynne practices, points to a wall in his office displaying photographs of himself alongside the likes of George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain. Im a good Republican. Rep. Hagers also a good Residents of sober houses are protected by federal housing and disability laws.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYRepublican. I find it ironic that he feels government intervention is somehow going to cure this particu-lar situation,Ž he says. I find it ironic that everyone wants to establish how it should be cured without knowing the facts.Ž Last year a Senate committee directed DCF to file a report on recovery residences. The report ultimately concluded that sober homes are elusive and litigious and that more money needs to be appropriated for more studies. If you are serious about regulating an industry, then lets get to what needs to be regulated and how we regulate it,Ž Mr. Weiner says. The facts, theyre not here yet. Weve got anecdotes, theyve got anec-dotes,Ž and the two sides can exchange them punch-for-punch. The first time I saw it,Ž Mr. Weiner says of the disdain for the recovery community, was in the early 90s. There was a hospital that was formerly operated exclusively for psychiatric patients. It was in western Delray, or what was then western Delray, and it was to reopen to treat addiction only. Imagine, it was a psychiatric hospital up until that time. When it came to reopen, the local city residents filled city hall and I was hired. That was the first time I had seen it. And I thought to myself, it was quite shocking to think people had been there with schizo-phrenia and every other diagnosis in the world and no one said a word. All of a sudden it was recover-ing alcoholics and we had hundreds of people in the room.Ž Mr. Weiner believes legislators are sincere in their desire to help their constituents. He says people in the recovery world want to see good regulation, too. He believes there must be a better way, more reasonable legislation, more appropriate dialogue, to make those in the community and those in recovery feel comfort-able. For better or for worse, there is a social contract, and it means that the general community may have to endure some change, maybe even some dislocation, much as they did in the 60s,Ž when neighborhoods were integrated, Mr. Weiner says. They may have to endure change now and get over what fear they have.Ž State Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, says unregulated sober houses change the character of neighbor-hoods. He acknowledges that people have a right to open a sober house, Were not saying you shouldnt,Ž but just as people in recovery are trying to make their lives better, he says his bill aims to make sober houses better. The bill lets us know where sober houses are and provides minimum standards of quality of life for the people who live there,Ž he says. Sen. Clemens feel confident his bill will pass the Senate. He feels the struggle will be with Rep. Hager in the House. Were continuing to move our bill for-ward in the form its in, perhaps with some additional language in the future to further protect residents,Ž he says. At this point, I dont anticipate us water-ing down or weakening the bill to match up with the House version.Ž Sen. Clemens says its easy to attract folks to Florida. If we cant get a handle on it, Naples has nice beaches, too. I wouldnt be surprised if (sober houses) became an issue over there, as well,Ž he says. Asked to accentuate the real problems, not the perceptions, of sober houses run by unscrupulous own-ers,Ž Sen. Clemens pivots to Terrill Pyburn, interim city attorney for Delray Beach. In the conference room of her office, Ms. Pyburn hands over a scripture-thick stack of papers contain-ing the photograph of a sober house operator who was arrested for selling drugs, a photograph of a registered sex offender who was managing a sober house and a photograph of sober house apartment units attached to a bar. The document also contains logs of police, fire and emergency calls to residences believed to be sober houses. Ms. Pyburn explains the citys definition of family allows three unrelated people to live in a dwelling.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 NEWS A11landlord can apply for reasonable accommodationŽ when the number of tenants exceeds the citys code. Thereby, the data estimates there were 225 sober homes in Delray in June, based on the number of requests for reasonable accommodation, but that num-ber does not include sober houses with three people or less, or sober houses that have not sought accom-modation. Ms. Pyburn says theres no way of knowing the number of sober houses, sounding the war cry of those who say: Thats why we need legislation.Ž Ms. Pyburn defends the proposed legislation as protective, not discriminatory, by saying, Federal law states that you can, in plain English, you can have regulations that may be imposed in the realm of per-sons with disabilities, so long as they are legitimately related to a government interest. In other words, if the regulation helps, not hurts, the protected class.Ž Ms. Pyburn says the proposed legislation helps prevent people living in sober houses from being kicked out in the middle of the day or night by way of the 48-hour notice prior to eviction, responsive to the state interest of affording the tenant due process and preventing homelessness. Thats logical. There is a nexus there.Ž She says the required background checks will stop sexual offenders from running sober houses or stop sober house operators from selling drugs, responsive to the state interest of providing the tenant a safe place to live and preventing relapse. Thats logical. There is a nexus there.Ž Regarding opponents casting allegations of discrimination, she says, Either they havent read the legisla-tion or theyre just giving blanket arguments that real-ly are unfounded and have nothing to do with and are not applicable or relevant to the legislation that were proposing. And that is what is upsetting.Ž The Florida Association of Recovery Residences, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to create, monitor, evaluate and improve standards for sober houses in the state, has certified 26 programs operat-ing 127 homes and presently is in the midst of certify-ing an additional 122 homes. Every one of these sober house operators voluntarily sought FARR certification. I believe strongly, the state should have a curriculum established for the education and training of own-ers/operators of recovery residences. They should be forced to register, they should be forced to comply, but the residences should not be listed anywhere in the state file,Ž says John Lehman, FARR president. Mr. Lehman says he has heard many a mayor vow, We dont know where the sober homes are, but as soon as we do, were going to get rid of them all. I can tell you from talking to recovery residence owners/operators,Ž Mr. Lehman says, the big chal-lenge for them to come out of the closet and even apply to FARR for certification is, We dont want them to even know we exist, because theyre going to come „ its a witch hunt „ theyre going to come and theyre going to try and close us down.Ž Mr. Lehman acknowledges there are bad sober house operators. Some sober houses are overcrowded. Some residents can use whatever substance they want, as long as they pay rent. He says some houses are not concerned with recovery but house insurance cards,Ž collecting multiple urine samples a week to gener-ate ungodly amounts of money. He says people in the industry call these places piss farms.Ž Nobody wants active addicts living next door,Ž Mr. Lehman says. ADA defines this disabled class as being people that are in recovery from addiction ƒ If youre not in recovery, if you are actively using, you are not protected.Ž Mr. Lehman feels sober house operators should have to demonstrate that their residents are in recovery. If theyre not, he doesnt think the residences can be protected. He says legislators need to stop thinking about the homes, FHA is FHA and its been tested ƒ Youre not going to do anything about the homes, the homes get to be in single-family neighborhoods.Ž He suggests legislators start to change their thinking and move on to owners/operators. You can regulate them,Ž he says. You cannot regulate the homes.Ž Delray Beach Mayor Cary Glickstein says the motive behind the proposed legislation was protection for everybody. Even the FHA and ADA were really meant just to level the playing field for people with disabili-ties,Ž he says. They werent intended to give them more rights than people without disabilities, much like before FHA and ADA it was unfair that people without disabilities had greater access and rights than people with disabilities, so all of this is about parity.Ž Mayor Glickstein likens the current, lawless state of sober houses to the Wild West: No licensing require-ment, no registration requirement, no background check, no inspection of facilities, theres nothing.Ž The way he views legislation, Its knowledge.ŽAny reference to a witch hunt,Ž he regards as selfserving hyperbole.Ž He says its no secret where sober houses are located, We know where they are. Every-body knows where they are ƒ We have entire blocks, its not just sober homes, we have entire sober blocks.Ž He stops himself. Sober houses are a sensitive issue. Its very hard to talk about it, having to craft your words, being concerned about how some lawyer is going to twist them out of context ƒ Lawyers who are hovering around, who have made a fortune, that have profited from this industry under the guise of anti-dis-crimination, looking to pounce on the words of every elected leader, city official, legislator.Ž From the vantage of city planning and city resources, Mayor Glickstein says its not the number of sober houses thats the issue, its the number of people in the houses, its the number of beds. He says the number of sober houses is proliferating, the number of beds growing exponentially, but he finds himself in a catch-22. How does he know theyre growing? Thats why the registration is important,Ž he says. The Palm Beach Gardens Police Department reports they have had no issues with the two known sober houses in the city. Officer Ellen Lovejoy, PBGPD spokeswoman, says no one in the department can speak to the issue of sober houses, because it has not been an issue. David Levy, Palm Beach Gardens City Council member, says he has not heard from his constituents regarding sober houses. He says the matter has only been brought up once in city council meetings. We support our sister cities and their efforts to change state legislation for better regulation,Ž he says. Mr. Levy says a city has to protect its neighborhoods and recognize the rights of those in recovery. He feels theres room for recovery and regulation. The DCF response to the registration of sober houses, background screenings and inspections has been: The departments role is ƒ to implement any changes the bill requires of the department.Ž Q Recovery advocates say the locations of sober houses should not be disclosed. Often, rooms are shared by a number of sober house residents. Sober houses can be found in many South Floridaneighborhoods. No one knows exactly how many there are.

When Mitch left to run an errand, she quickly hid the bags in her closet. She knew Mitch would have a lot to say if he knew she had bought the new outfit, but really! At 70 percent off, they were practically giving it away! Stan slipped the new driver into his golf bag, figuring Margie would never notice. The pro had assured him this club would give him ten more yards so he had to have it. Besides, hed been killing himself at the office. He was certainly entitled to treat himself. Lets talk about the often unspoken drama that plays out in homes all over America! Husbands and wives are not always forthcoming about their spending hab-its, and some of the time they may deliberately withhold the true extent of their spending. They may think theyre getting away with it (and, on occasion they might) but the truth invariably comes out. And when it does, the distance and conflict can be enormous! A very telling survey says a lot about Americas spending behavior: 80 percent of all married people hide some purchases from their mates, according to a 2010 survey by CESI Debt Solutions. To be clear, many will dispute this number and debate the full extent of what this figure means. Nevertheless, this survey certainly confirms that this is a very loaded topic. For many, shopping and spending provides a gratifying lift. Scoring a bar-gain is a triumph we often boast to friends and associates. Shopping can be a pick-me-up when a person is feeling low, providing an adrenaline rush„a high not dissimilar to the feelings a drug or alcohol addict experiences. Needless to say, it is important to clarify the impact of these purchases on the household. When people have pressures at work, have a lot on their minds, or just love the item in question, they often feel entitled to treat themselves. Sometimes a couple can well afford the purchase but a spouse disapproves and has a value judgment. You have a closet full of shoes. Do you really need another pair?Ž Now, of course, theres another scenario thats especially concerning. This is when a household budget is put precariously at risk by the shopping or over-extending. These people may put their lives in jeopardy by running up astronomical credit card bills, with col-lection agencies calling nonstop. These shoppers may fall into the classification of compulsive shoppers: This behavior is described as a pattern of chronic, repetitive purchasing that becomes dif-ficult to stop and ultimately results in harmful consequences. It has been defined as an impulse disorder and has features similar to other addictive disorders, such as alcohol and drug addictions, without involving the use of an intoxicating drug. The individual feels an increasing sense of tension or arousal before committing the act and then experiences gratification or relief afterwards. We often see this behavior when people feel lonely, depressed or angry and are trying to bolster their self-esteem or heal their hurts. Howev-er, the lifted spirits are generally short-lived because there is often emotional and financial fall-out in the end. How do you assess whether your spending hab-its have crossed a line into dangerous territory? You can start by asking some important questions: € Do you often feel guilty or ashamed after making purchases? € Do you make excuses to yourself to justify purchases you feel uncertain about (Everybody else has one.Ž)? € Do you buy things to lift yourself up when youre down? € Do you lie about how much money you spent or what you bought? Do you tell your children not to tell your spouse about purchases? € Are you preoccupied about how youre going to pay for things for much of your waking hours? Do you have trouble sleeping because of money wor-ries? € Do you spend a lot of time juggling bills or transferring money? Do you hide bills from your partner? Do you field collection calls so your spouse is unaware? If you answered yes to any one of these questions, you may have a serious problem that needs to be addressed, and that you may not be able tackle on your own. Fortunately, there are many agen-cies, groups and therapists that are well trained to offer help. As we all know, deception compromises our relationships. Im a firm believer that its critically important for all of us to have frank discussions with our partners about differing values and spending philosophies. Setting up a fam-ily budget or guidelines that are agreed to may head off some disagreements. Being clear about which purchases need to be agreed to ahead of time, and which items can be comfortably purchased without any prior discussion can make a difference as well. Ask yourself: If my spouse knew the full extent of my spending, would this cause a rift and undermine the trust that we have in each other?Ž If your answer is yes, or even maybe, it might be time to have a frank discus-sion. „ This column first ran in December, 2010.

Q linda You may have had only one glass of wine with dinner, but if youre 55 or older, that single serving might hit you hard enough to make you a dangerous driver. So, baby boomers, what you suspected is true: You cant party like you used to. Sara Jo Nixon, a professor in the departments of psychiatry and psychol-ogy at the University of Florida, and doctoral candidate Alfredo Sklar tested how drinking legally nonintoxicating levels of alcohol affects the driving skills of two age groups: 36 people ages 25-35 and 36 people ages 55-70. They found that although neither age group imbibed enough alcohol to put them over the legal driving limit, a blood alcohol level of 0.08, just one drink, can affect the driving abilities of older drivers. Based on the study findings, the researchers say it could be time to reas-sess legal blood alcohol levels for all drivers. These simulations have been used a lot in looking at older adults, and they have been used at looking how alcohol affects the driving of younger adults, but no ones ever looked at the combination of aging drivers and alcohol,Ž Mr. Sklar says. The study is the latest in a body of work by Ms. Nixon and her team that looks at how even moderate doses of alcohol affect aging adults. At the beginning of the study, both groups completed a driving task com-pletely sober. The task took the driv-ers down a simulated winding 3-mile stretch of country road. The drivers stared straight ahead at a large com-puter monitor. Two computer monitors flanked the first, mimicking the side windows of a car and what the drivers would see in their peripheral vision. A stereo system played driving sounds. A console included a steering wheel and brake and gas pedals. Occasionally, the drivers would encounter an oncoming car, but they did not encounter other distractions. There wasnt even a cow,Ž says Ms. Nixon, who also is co-vice chair and chief of the division of addiction research in the department of psychia-try in the UF College of Medicine and UFs Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute. Researchers assessed the drivers ability to stay in the center of their lane and maintain a constant speed. They also looked at how rapidly they adjusted their steering wheel. On a later day, the groups were further separated into groups. The first imbibed a placebo „ a diet lemon-lime soda misted with a negligible amount of alcohol to mimic the experience of drinking alcohol. A second groups drink was strong enough to produce a 0.04 percent breath alcohol level, and a third groups drink gave them a breath alcohol level of 0.065 percent „ still below the federal legal level for drink-ing of 0.08. Participants then completed the same driving task they performed when they were sober. Researchers timed the task so participants alcohol levels were declining to mimic a situation in which individuals have a drink with dinner and then drive home. In younger adults, the researchers found alcohol consumption did not affect their measured driving skills at all „ a finding that Ms. Nixon calls a bit surprising.Ž She warned that the absence of effects in this laboratory setting does not mean that young adult drivers driving wouldnt be affected in normal circumstances, driving in a typical, real-world setting. She notes that the laboratory setting was simpli-fied compared with real-world driving and that the current data do not address potential problems in more complex settings. But for the older drivers, the small, legal levels of intoxication did affect their driving. The researchers are evaluating additional study results. Participants also drove a course through a small-town setting as well as a city setting, com-plete with pedestrians, motorists who violated traffic signs and other chal-lenges. Mr. Sklar and others in the labo-ratory will examine brain electrophysi-ological data collected through scalp electrodes embedded in caps that the subjects were wearing during the drive to study how the brain responds dur-ing the driving test when dosed with alcohol.

Gardens Cosmetic Center 4060 PGA Blvd. Suite 203Palm Beach Gardens, FL ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON Loss of facial volume is a major contributor to the wrinkles and folds that appear as we age. Facial fillers (aka dermal fillers) have been a safe and effective way to replace this deficient volume. I use a full armamentarium of products such as Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm Ultra. These are used in various places on the face, but I will focus on cheek augmentation in this column. Recently, fillers have been used to change facial geometry. When I analyze someone’s face, I feel a powerful appearance of youth is achieved when the face has a heart shape. The cheeks are the rounded wide part and the face tapers down towards the chin, which is at the point. In order to accentuate and recreate this heart shaped look, filler is injected deep along to bone of the cheeks and sometimes in the chin. This will augment the bone and form a foundation for the soft tissues of our face. The product I use most often for cheek augmentation is Radiesse. It is made from calcium hydroxyapetite which is the same composition as the mineral portion of bone. It is mixed with lidocaine and injections are largely pain free with minimal down time. The results can last up to 12 months and some studies are showing it may last even longer. My extensive experience in using Radiesse for cheek augmentation has shown it to be a safe and reliable product. To see if Radiesse or other fillers are right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

Ajmo D.D.S., P.A., Cosmetic, Restorative & Implant Dentistry Board Certi“ ed IV Sedation ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Number of implants depends on tooth location Question: Can I just get one implant? Answer: Depending on the position of the tooth you are replacing, you can use one implant. If you are restoring multiple teeth or a molar, you may need to consider more than one implant. The number and size of the implants installed will depend on the type of tooth or teeth you are replacing and the strength of the bone at that location. An average implant is about the size of one root. Your lower molars have two big roots and your upper molars have three big roots. Teeth have different size and multiple roots by design. If the bone that supports teeth or implants receives too much stress, the bone will start to disappear. Nature has given teeth different configurations of roots to be able to distribute and spread these forces over a larger area. This helps diminish the impact and protecting the supporting bone. The strongest bone in your jaw is located where your lower front teeth are found. This is why these teeth have small roots. Strong bone can absorb more force, therefore, less root surface is required. Your weakest bone is where your upper molars are positioned. This bone is close to your sinuses and contains lots of air sacks keeping that bone soft. This is why these teeth have three big roots. Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986. He is an active member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and designated Master Cosmetic Dentist by the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry. He’s been awarded Diplomate Certification from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate from the American Dental Implant Association and a Mastership from the Misch International Implant Institute.

It was also the year that the first knee replacement surgery was performed. Today, more than 715,000 knee replacements are done annually to help relieve pain and decrease disability in people with knee problems. The knee joint, which is the largest in the body, can wear out for numerous reasons, such as inflammation caused by arthri-tis, injury or everyday wear and tear. Knee replacement surgery may be recommended if pain limits activities, chron-ic inflammation in the knee does not improve with rest or medications, the knee is stiff or deformed, or there is moder-ate to severe pain that occurs during rest. Most patients who undergo knee replacement sur-gery are between the ages of 60 and 80. However, the pro-cedure may be beneficial to patients of all ages depending on the individuals levels of pain and disability. The team of orthopedic physicians, nurses and physical therapists at The Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at St. Marys Medical Center provides a comprehensive range of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments for knee replacement, including self-education, physical therapy and pain management. A complete medical history will be taken prior to surgery, and a physi-cal examination will be completed to assess the range of motion, stability, and strength in the knee. X-rays may be done to evaluate the extent of knee damage. Most patients are admitted to the hos-pital on the day of surgery and will be asked not to eat or drink anything after midnight before the procedure. The majority of knee replacement procedures last approximately two hours and require some form of anes-thesia, either general or spinal. During this time, the surgeon will make an incision that is eight to 12 inches long in the knee area, move the kneecap aside, remove the damaged cartilage and bone, and then insert the new metal and plas-tic knee joint called a prosthesis. Before the incision is closed, the surgeon will bend and rotate the knee joint to ensure that it functions properly. After spending one to two hours in the recovery room, knee replacement surgery patients are moved to a hospital room where they will generally stay for several days before being discharged home. During the hospital stay, blood thinners, support hose and compres-sion boots (inflatable leg coverings) may be necessary to help prevent blood clots and decrease swelling. A continu-ous passive motion machine could be used to bend the leg back and forth to increase blood flow and mobility. Patients usually can resume normal daily activities three to six weeks after knee replacement surgery. Low-impact activities for exercise are encouraged after recovery, such as walking, swim-ming, biking or playing golf. However, high impact activities including jogging, skiing and tennis will no longer be pos-sible. The success of the surgery will depend in large part on how well the patient follows doctors orders at home the first few weeks after the procedure. More than 95 percent of patients report significant pain relief, greater mobility and an enhanced quality of life follow-ing surgery.

Just dont ask them to time them-selves in the shower. An online survey of 516 Floridians found that interest in water ranked third in a list of public issues, just behind the economy and health care, but ahead of taxes and public education. Eighty-three percent of respondents considered water a highly or extremely important issue. Alexa Lamm, the University of Florida assistant professor who led the survey for the Center for Public Issues Educa-tion (PIE Center), says the respondents, who completed the survey this past December, were selected as a demo-graphically representative sample of adult Floridians. The PIE Center is part of UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Ms. Lamm, a faculty member in the department of agricultural education and communication, is the centers associate director. Jack Payne, UFs senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources, says it is important for a large research university where so much scientific work is being done on water to gauge how well the public understands issues associated with water supply and usage. We need educated voters at the voting booth, so its always good to know the level of understanding our citizens have,Ž he says, adding many critical problems Florida will face in the future revolve around water, including the supply and quality of water as well as a rising sea level. The survey found that respondents would support some increases in their water utility bills if the money would help ensure future water supplies. To that end, 69 percent said they would support a 10 per-cent increase in water bills, if used for that pur-pose. Perhaps not surprising, support dropped as the bill-hike percentage increased. Only 7 percent of respondents said they would be willing to pay 50 percent more for water to help ensure its supply. Michael Dukes, director of UF/IFAS Center for Landscape Conser-vation and Ecology, says Floridas growing popu-lation will mean more pressure on state water supplies. I think were going to have to come to a decision point on the use of high-quality drinking water „ potable water „ to maintain landscapes,Ž Mr. Dukes says. He notes current UF research working to help offset water problems, including studies on efficient irrigation, new ways to recapture water and development of drought-tolerant turfgrass varieties, and he adds many Floridians are looking for ways to land-scape with plants that are attractive and drought tolerant. As was true with last years water survey, PIE Center officials learned that the public has varying amounts of tolerance for giving up creature comforts in order to enhance conservation. For example, Ms. Lamm says, while 75 percent of survey respondents said they would wait until their dishwasher is full to turn it on, 47 percent said they would not put a timer in the bathroom to help remind them to shorten their shower. The survey also found that Floridians reported low overall knowledge about some water-related current events, despite media coverage. Only 31 percent of survey respondents were aware of last falls decline in commercial oyster production in Apalachicola Bay, and only 26 percent knew that Florida officials filed a lawsuit in October over the state of Georgias consumption of fresh water from a river that helps support Floridas oyster industry, she says. The survey did find that Floridians sup-port state government efforts to protect water, even if it means resolv-ing disputes in court: 83 percent agreed that state government should protect water, while just 18 percent said it would be a waste of government money to fight legal battles over water rights. The PIE Center water survey marked the start of the second year of its public-opinion sur-veys. Besides water, survey topics have included endangered and invasive species, immigration and public perceptions about food safety, food security and genetically modified organisms.

A new incentive this year includes a special prize for the school with the most participants. The contest celebrates engineering ingenuity with entrants able to participate in five different design contests. Competitors will see if they have a good egg or Humpty Dumpty after their egg container takes a three-story drop from a cherry picker in the Drop It competition; or if their bottle rocket will blast off or fizzle out during the Launch It competition. Bridges will be built, floatable boats will be crafted and roller coasters will oper-ate as students compete for prize money, awarded to the first through fourth place winners in each category. The competition will be judged by the Florida Engineering Society. With Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition on display, we started thinking Float it should be a new element this year,Ž said Lew Crampton, Science Center CEO, in a prepared statement. Similar to Fly it, students will be making their boat on site with everyday household items provided to them. We are really excited to see how well this new competition is received. We are grateful for our long-standing partnership with the Florida Engineering Society and for the continued support of many longtime sponsors. It is our mission to open every mind to science and this event encourages children of all ages to pursue careers in engineer-ing, science and math.Ž The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, formerly known as the South Florida Sci-ence Museum, recently completed a $5 million expansion and renovation and is currently host-ing Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition in its newly expanded exhibit hall. With a new mission to open every mind to science,Ž the Science Cen-ter features more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, an 8,000 gallon fresh-and-salt-water aquarium, featuring both local and exotic marine life; a digital planetarium; conservation research station; Florida exhibit hall; and an interactive Everglades exhibit. Thanks to support from the Florida Engineering Society, and the support of generous sponsors, students will have the opportunity to take home nearly $5,000 in prize money.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 NEWS A25 Local business, community leaders to strut their stuff at The Arc’s Wild Pants Party at The Gardens MallCanary yellow and robins-egg blue will clash with cardinal red and flamingo pink during the much-anticipated return of The Arc of Palm Beach Countys Wild Pants Party. More than 40 men will sport some of the most questionably colored couture in fashion history at the fundraising favorite on April 3 at The Gardens Mall. The drink-sipping, food-sampling, and runway-strutting extravaganza benefits The Arcs Potentials School for developmentally disabled children. Who has more fun, the audience or the models?Ž asked Kimberly McCarten, The Arcs interim executive director. Our audience is the best ever. They cheer every guy on from the first guy to the last guy, which is awesome. We have an incredible green room thats the best part of this whole experience.Ž The good-spirited volunteers represent a whos who of local business and community leaders, from CFOs and Chamber of Commerce officials to doctors and lawyers. In the green room, donning their Brooks Brothers, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Vineyard Vines threads, they have the opportu-nity to network with one another, learn about The Arcs mis-sion, and prepare for their 15 minutes of fame with what Ms. McCarten describes as liquid encouragement.Ž Brio Tuscan Grille will cater their dinner. Theres so many opportunities in Palm Beach County to meet people, but this is something that is so much different for them,Ž she said. Theyre doing something people dont usually do during a networking event … theyre getting on the runway. We thought wed really have to strong-arm people into doing this event, but they love it. Weve gotten really amazing feedback.Ž The Wild Pants Party will draw an estimated 500 guests … mostly women … who cheer on such participants as WPTVs reporter and anchor, Jay Cashmere, The Honda Classics Ed McEnroe, and Greg Zele of Zele Huber Trial Attorneys. Josh Cohen, radio host on ESPN 106.3 FM, and WPTVs sports anchor Joe Girvan, will entertain as event emcees. The guys really want to support The Arc and have a ton of fun doing it,Ž Ms. McCarten said. They need to come for their fitting, show up, be awesome, which is to say, just be themselves, and help raise money.Ž Cocktail tables seating 10 cost $750, and Haute Champagne Lounge tables for 10 are $2,500. Ms. McCarten antici-pates raising $50,000 … and then some. Besides the catcalls, a common behavior among the crowd includes stuffing cash into the pockets of all those wild pants. Its a blast,Ž she said. These people have a great time. Last year, one of the guys got $150 from his runway strut.Ž Of course, every dollar goes to The Arc. The Wild Pants Party has grown from a 20-man event, which raised $8,000 in 2011, to The Arcs signature benefit gracing the malls Grand Court. It kicks off the annual golf tournament taking place April 30 at The Dye Preserve Golf Club in Jupiter. We have to work really hard in doing events like Wild Pants to bring ourselves to the forefront,Ž Ms. McCarten said. We have to say, Hey, this is The Arc. You wont know us otherwise.Ž The Arc has 32 students … ages 3 through 10 … in the Potentials School. Forty-eight participate in the adult pro-gram. The agency serves 2,000 families per year impacted by autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other medi-cal complications. It also operates four off-site group homes. We really try to promote inclusion,Ž Ms. McCarten said. The end result of the children who come to our charter school is that they get integrated into their public school system. So our main goal is to get them as independent as possible.Ž Earlier this year, The Gardens Mall selected The Arc as one of its nonprofit partners for the 25 Years of GivingŽ campaign celebrating the shopping meccas 25 years in Palm Beach Gardens. The Gardens Mall has done everything for us,Ž Ms. McCarten said. Theyre just such an amazing community supporter. Every time you call, its, How can we help you? Ž Michele Jacobs, the malls corporate director of marketing and operations, said the work The Arc does for those with special needs made it easy to select as a cause to champion. We are absolutely delighted that we have the opportunity to support The Arc,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. The amazing work that they do for people of all ages with disabilities is extraor-dinary, and we are truly humbled to be a small part of their successes.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOSJoe Girvan, co-emcee and a model, struts the runway during last year’s Wild Pants Party at The Gardens Mall.SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY___________________________________________ Co-emcees Josh Cohen and Joe Girvan look on as Maurice Jonker of Maurice’s Olde World Furnishings starts his trip down the runway by doing The Worm.

High-net-worth Floridians „ those with investible assets of $1 million or more „ reported that they require, on average, $2.1 million to fund their retire-ment. This is $200,000 lower than the national average of $2.3 million. The information came from a survey by BMO Private Bank, the fourth in a series examining trends among the affluent in the United States. The survey also found that the Sunshine States affluent are quite upbeat about their ability to save for retire-ment; nearly all (95 percent) feel con-fident about they will be able to afford their ideal retirement lifestyle, com-pared to 91 percent nationally. Our clients are feeling better about the economy in gen-eral, as well as the prospect of retir-ing in the future,Ž said Michael J. Dyer, CFP and West Palm Beach man-aging director for BMO Private Bank, in a prepared state-ment. Now that our clients are see-ing strength in their investment portfolios as they are deliv-ering more solid returns, they are feel-ing more confident that they can main-tain the lifestyles they are enjoying now, well into their retirement.Ž The survey asked about issues related to the inter-generational transfer of wealth. It found that, among affluent Floridians with children: € Close to half (42 percent) of their wealth will be left to their children, 39 percent to a spouse or partner, 14 per-cent to other family members and just under 4 percent to charities. € For those with children, 48 percent say they spend time talking with them about finances. € Ninety-six percent feel their children are prepared to manage their inheritance. € Nearly half „ 46 percent „ feel their offspring will be better off than they are. € Of the 35 percent who feel their kids will be worse off than they are, 75 percent attribute this to the state of the economy. While every family is unique, family wealth needs to be communicated among the generations. Its always bet-ter for all concerned when there is an open dialogue,Ž added Mr. Dyer in the prepared statement. Discussing the dynamics of wealth transfer from one generation to the next … and receiving professional guidance … is always highly recommended.Ž Key national findings included:€ Affluent Americans require, on average, $2.3 million to fund their retire-ment. € Almost all (94 percent) are feeling confident about their ability to achieve their ideal retirement lifestyle. € The vast majority (85 percent) of high-net worth Americans feel their children are well-prepared to handle their inheritance. € Affluent Americans will leave more than one-third (36 percent) of their wealth to their children. € Seventy percent spend time talking to their kids about money management and almost half (43 percent) feel that their offspring will be better off than they are. € Of the 35 percent who feel that their kids will be worse off than they are, 63 percent believe that this will largely be because of the future state of the economy. The online survey was conducted by Pollara between March 28 and April 11, 2013, with a sample of 482 American adults who have $1M+ in investable assets. The margin of error for a probability sample of this size is plus or minus 4.5 percent, 19 times out of 20.

Once again, his writing is being highlighted in this column, as his most recent column (Feb. 20) in the Daily Telegraph sounds an alarm; it explains the nature of risk emanating from China. Titled World asleep as China tight-ens deflationary vice,Ž the column is a must-read for investors. It describes in detail how the Chinese banking system poses a systematic threat to the global capital markets; a threat as severe as the global credit crisis in 2008-2009; a threat as severe as Japans unwinding of its real estate debt after 1989, etc. What was once well founded and responsible growth in Chinese lending has turned into a likely global credit crisis that, per one analyst, could result in a hard land-ing, causing Chinese equities to drop 30 percent from current levels. Other countries are not insulated „ they are just asleep. Here is some background to give perspective: Chinas economic engine has supported economic recovery around the world since 2009. China has been able to grow its GDP at rates higher than 7 percent to 8 percent and, after inflation adjustment, at rates north of 4 percent to 5 percent ƒ during times when Europe, UK and the U.S. were in negative to 2 percent growth in GDP. How did China accomplish a GDP miracle of miracles? Partly through solid fundamentals. China has a billion-plus consumers now buying products (more than just cell phones and scooters.) Its government encouraged and supported entrepreneurial efforts, and the govern-ment spent trillions to create new infra-structure to support private sector busi-nesses and the consumer. This occurred largely through aggressive lending that promoted speculation in businesses, real estate and other investments. Some of these loans were quite speculative, and as with all speculations, some investments will succeed and loans will be paid and other investments will fall short and loans will default. Deflating a bubble supported by loans is easy to end, but it often brings a hard landingŽ to come back to economic reality. China relied on multiple lending sources. Within China, the governments controlled banks have largely support-ed government industry expansion; and non-government controlled shadow banksŽ supported non-government industries/private sectors. It is probable that the risk in the shadow bankingŽ sector is extremely high and, unlike the government banks, have less options to withstand hits to their capital base. (According to Investopedia, Shadow bankingŽ refers to financial intermediar-ies involved in facilitating the creation of credit across the global financial system, but whose members are not subject to regulatory oversight (and)ƒ unregulated activities by regulated institutions.Ž) China has borrowed hundreds of billions from offshore „ Hong Kong, Europe, Australia, U.S., etc. Mr. Evans-Pritchard draws on multiple Asian sources who articulate the nature of the problem: Q There has been a credit expansion of size greater than the U.S. and Japa-nese banking systems combined. Q The capital investment program in China last year was too large for the global economy to absorb its attendant production; at $5 trillion, Chinas spend-ing was more than the U.S. and Europes combined. Q The credit bubble in China is $24 trillion and, sourcing a JPMorgans ana-lyst, the shadow banking system alone has exploded from $2.4 to $7.7 trillion since 2010; in comparison, the total U.S. subprime debacle was $1.2 trillion. Probably the most telling statement by Mr. Evans-Pritchard is his percep-tion that the World (is) asleep as China tightens deflationary vice.Ž U.S. and global equity investors are seemingly comatose to what could be another sys-temic credit crisis. The Chinese banking story comes on the heels of aggression by Russia, which is annexing Crimea. Russia rejects U.S. and European would-be sanctions and threatens retaliation if sanctions are imposed. If no action against Russia is taken, many a global bully will be encouraged to also take/do what they want. China, North Korea, Syria, Iran and other countries (in which dictators or strong-armed elected officials have been waiting to see if Russia succeeds in defying the U.S. and allies) might also take/do what they want. However Russia turns out, it will likely provide a blueprint for future aggressions. Equity and bond investors need to take heed to the events and understand portfolio risk. The risk of an individual asset class is not as important as the overall risk of the portfolio. Some asset classes thrive on crises and volatility, just not equities or bonds. Bottom line, the market risks are not limited to Russian aggression and its implication for the pricing of diverse global financial asset classes; the U.S. and global markets face serious risks related to Chinas unwinding of exces-sive and imprudent leverage.

To make the forms, he hand-bends and welds rebar into the shapes he desires. We do have a ring-bending machine for when we do the pots like these,Ž he said, gesturing to the space on the topiary into which he was inserting flowerpots. The bee is small potatoes for Topiary Joe. His website shows dozens of largescale works, including one of the big-gest, a 15-foot-tall, 45-foot-long Tyran-nosaurus Rex. They assembled it on a trailer and dismantled it for a trek from his studio in Tennessee to its new home in Chicago. We had to chop it apart, had to take off the tail and the head,Ž he said, laugh-ing. And we still hit a damned bridge in Chicago.Ž Mr. Kyte clearly has cultivated a sense of humor. He started in the horticulture industry as soon as he finished studies at the University of Tennessee, and went to work for a Dutch company; he later had a position with a Danish company that did hydroponics. That led him in 1984 to Disney World, where the company did an installation at Epcot thats still intact. The hydroponic tomatoes „ thats my exhibit,Ž he said. While there, he noticed that Disney also is home to some pretty spectacular topiary. He got back home to Tennessee and learned to make his own. My dad taught me how to weld. He said all they do is take a table vise and rebar and do this,Ž he said gesturing. And theres my career.Ž He has set up studios around the world as far-flung as Chile and a clan-destine barn in Ireland to create his topiary artwork. Ive even had a shop in Hyde Park in London, which was extremely fun, making a herd of deer for the Royal Parks Foundation,Ž he said. Someday, he would like to visit a town in Tasmania that is famous for its topiary. He has had two inquiries from Railton, that Tasmanian town, but so far, no one has sent him a ticket. But he does not need a ticket to fill his own yard in Tennessee with topiary. My yard at the house is pretty well known there because its got a 12-foot dragon for a mailbox and the Porsche 360 roadster that I made,Ž he said of his home in Tellico Plains, about 60 miles from Knoxville. He listed the Porsche sculpture on Craigslist for $24,000. I just want to see whos going to go for it,Ž he said. That truly is a large piece. And the creatures that are on display at Downtown at the Gardens? A bumblebee thats 6 feet long it would probably cost you about $3,000. I start at $2,000 or $3,000 and go to the $100,000 range,Ž he said, mentioning a stop he will make at Busch Gardens in Tampa on his way home. He calls his art American portablestyle topiary. Theme parks that use his work typically will have three of the sculptures. One with plants, one with vines and such, the other with faux boxwood,Ž he said, so park maintenance workers can easily sub one of the sculptures if the plants begin to fade or die. His preference?I like to have them be as the sculpture then see the vines grow into them,Ž he said. I did a 12-foot-tall jaguar mascot down in Delray and the guy just let it slowly grow in that way with confeder-ate jasmine and ficus, and I like that,Ž he said. He remembers another.Our first project was in Islamorada at Theatre of the Sea,Ž Mr. Kyte said. There were 30 varieties of air plants that had just flown in and were living on my sculptures. They were planted with moss and creeping figs.Ž He looked again.There were all kinds of bromeliads and succulents and orchids.Ž Any advice for home gardeners?Look around your neighborhood to see what plants grow best, buy those and hand-sculpt from there. Think about the location. Organizers of Downtown in Bloom will want the topiaries to require as little maintenance as possible. Take that bumblebee, for example.Were going to put a variety of flowering succulents. These have to survive out here for a month, so I was trying to find xeriscape-friendly plants,Ž he said. It will look nice instantly.What I try to provide most people is immediate green satiation.Ž Q JOEFrom page 1 >> What: Downtown in Bloom >> When: Budding Artists Weekend — March 28-29.

Shapes went in and out of fashion. Colorful and sparkling glass beads imported from Europe added to the knit and embroidered purses that were in style. In the early 1800s, the reti-cule or drawstring bag was in.Ž It was knitted with a bead in each stitch. And each bag had a drawstring closure and a long tassel at the bottom. By the 1840s, glass beads were used as trim on dresses and hats. The reticule was out, and rect-angular beaded purses were made with geometric or pictorial designs and fancy metal frames. Early 1900s fashions went back to the earlier beaded purses, and some-times old frames were reused. Metal beads came into use in the 1840s and were especially popular in purses. The beaded purses of flapper days often had deco designs, metal beads, fringe and a makers label inside. In the 1970s and 80s, beaded purses were back for cock-tail parties but again lost favor by 2000. Now is the time to look for antique glass beaded purses. Prices have gone up during the past 10 years, but the bags are still bargains if you want a special purse. A collector today must examine a purse carefully to determine its age and quality. Q: I have a Featherweight Singer sewing machine that has a seal on the right side of the top that reads Golden Gate Exposition 1939.Ž I also have the original attachments, black case and instruction booklet. I would like to sell it all. Do you know what the set is worth and where I can sell it? A: Singer was founded in New York City by Isaac Merritt Singer in 1851. The company still is in busi-ness. The Featherweight, Model No. 221, was intro-duced at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1933 and was made until 1964. Its smaller and lighter in weight than ear-lier models because parts were made out of aluminum instead of cast iron. Machines with the Golden Gate Exposition 1939Ž badge were made in October 1938. Not many were sold and machines in working condition with attach-ments, case and manual do sell today, often to be used. The Exposition badge adds a little to the machines value. Most vintage sewing machines sell for a few hundred dollars. Q: My old earthenware pot with two handles stands 6 inches high and holds about 3 1/2 quarts. The base is unglazed and the lid has reddish-brown glaze. The front of the pot is impressed Red Wing, Provincial Ware, 29.Ž My oldest sister used to make baked beans in it for our family of seven. Is it worth anything? A: The number 29Ž on your pot is the style number Red Wing gave to its four-quart stock pot. Its sometimes advertised as a bean pot. The Provincial Ware bean pot came in quart and 1 1/2 quart sizes. Red Wing Pottery was in business in Red Wing, Minn., from 1878 to 1967. The company started out making stoneware jugs and canning jars and other utilitarian pottery, and later made din-nerware, vases and art pottery. Its Provincial Cooking Ware was introduced in 1941. Pieces from the line were reintroduced in 1963 and are marked on the bottom, not the side. The value of your stock pot is about $30 if its in good condition. Q: Im trying to find a value for my Dunhill lighter. Its 14K gold with brush-strokes. It was my papas and I always remember that lighter sitting by the backdoor table with a pack of Bel-Airs. Grandma never let him smoke in the house. Im not a smoker and am think-ing of selling the lighter to buy my boys something that would be from Papa. I just dont want to get ripped off. Can you tell me what the lighter is worth? A: The value of your lighter depends on the gold content and the price of gold when you sell it. The value of 24K gold is the highest because it is almost pure gold. Gold marked 14K is made of 58.33 percent gold and 41.7 percent other met-als. Gold is mixed with copper, silver and zinc to make it stronger and less likely to show scratches. Prices for gold fluctuate, but you can find the current price online. An ounce of 14K gold was worth about $725 in January 2014. Gold lighters sell at auction for prices ranging from $150 to $500. Tip: Use a magnet to test the beads on vintage beaded bags. The best beads are steel, and steel sticks to a magnet. Do not soak a beaded bag in water to clean it. The knit threads will weaken and may break. Use a damp cloth and little pressure.

This early 19th-century beaded pouch bag pictures ladies at tea on one side and around a piano on the other. The beading, fringe and silk lining are in excellent condition, so it sold for $1,026 at a 2014 Theriault’s auction held in California.

WalkerRealEstateGroup .com ‰K Ritz Carlton Residences Singer Island Specialists People with issuesA more ornate, dedicated subset of cross-dressers „ the living dollsŽ or maskersŽ „ was captured for a Brit-ish TV documentary in January (and likely to appear on U.S. television soon). Secrets of the Living DollsŽ follows ordinary men (one, a forklift opera-tor by day; another, divorced and 70, whose daughter knows hes a dollŽ but otherwise maintains a dont ask, dont tellŽ relationship) who come alive several nights a month when they don expensive ($800 to $1,800), tailored, head-to-toe silicone bodysuits that fea-ture breasts and genitalia, to party as young, glamorously dressed women. Two of the men lamented the dolls lack of full acceptance into the transvestite or transgender communities „ though much of that distrust may stem from dolls use of masks (perhaps similar to the backlash faced by clowns).Least-competent criminalsQ Christopher Fulton turned himself in in Midwest City, Okla., in March after seeing a surveillance photo of the rob-bery of an IBC Bank. He told police he indeed must be the robber, that he saw his body in the bank photo „ although he insisted that his mind had no recol-lection of it. Police were about to arrest Mr. Fulton, anyway, because the robbers holdup note was written on a blank check with the account holders name and address (Mr. Fultons moms) scratched out, except that police-lab technology easily read through the scratch-outs. Q Dyonta Rose, 29, in police custody the night of Feb. 22 in Dallas for pos-session of narcotics, fled the police cruiser still wearing his handcuffs. Mr. Rose was tracked down a short time later when he called 911 to ask for an ambulance because his handcuffs were cutting off circulation in his arm. Q The surveillance video of The Shambles bar in Chicago showed that an attempted break-in one night in January went awry when the unidentified perp removed the front entrance lock but gave up and fled seconds later when he couldnt open the door „ which he was shown furiously pulling on, oblivious that it was a pushŽ door. Q Robert Williams, 42, was charged with robbing a PNC Bank in Laurel, Md., in February after starring in the surveil-lance video by twice spilling his entire loot ($20,650) on the banks floor. After he finally gathered the bills and fled in a pickup truck, police punctured the tires, and when Mr. Williams tried to run, he slipped on the ice, slashing his head open.The new normal Q A plaintiff in an auto-accident lawsuit, who is claiming an injury that has impaired her inclination for social activities,Ž was ordered by a judge in Nova Scotia to prove her loss by show-ing a reduction in the time she spent on Facebook. Justice Glen McDougall ruled that Joanne Conrod must disclose her log-in and log-out information but need not reveal her complete Facebook profile. Q Arizona-based Christian exorcistŽ Bob Larson, who claims to have performed more than 20,000 demon-expulsions, recently branched out by allegedly (in front of CNNs Anderson Cooper) cleans-ing a client in Norway „ via the Internet-enabled phone application Skype. (Given the fragility of computer operating sys-tems, critics „ including mainstreamŽ exorcists „ find it puzzling that a demon could not disable Mr. Larsons.)Undignified deathsQ Twenty-two people were killed just north of Baghdad in February (and 15 injured) from a devastating suicide-bomb blast. The 37 were Sunni militants attending a class on how to be suicide bombers when the teachers vest acci-dentally exploded. Q An 86-year-old man, celebrating his selection in November by the Howard Stern radio show to be treated to a fancy meal followed by a menage-a-trois ses-sion with prostitutes at Nevadas famed Bunny Ranch, called it the greatest day of my life.Ž However, he failed to make it through dinner, as he choked to death on a piece of steak. Q In December, a 38-year-old man, apparently fed up with his girlfriends demands that he continue accompanying her at a shopping mall in Xuzhou, China, threw himself off a seventh-floor bal-cony, to his death. A witness reported the man yelling that the girlfriend already had more shoes than she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more.Ž Following increasingly heated exchanges, the man dropped her shop-ping bags and leaped over the railing.The aristocratsQ Timothy Margis, 38, had risen professionally to become the director of Public Safety of Concordia University in River Forest, Ill. He is also the man who was fired in February after admitting that he had committed a lewd actŽ in a colleagues office (which police later explained involved masturbating into a womans shoe). Q Catherine Dajnowski, 40, was arrested in February in Boca Raton, Fla., after she had climbed into a shopping cart in the parking lot of a Publix supermarket and would not allow a Publix employee to return it to the store. Ms. Dajnowski called 911 three times from the cart, demanding that police come make the employee leave her alone „ the third time during which a sheriffs deputy was standing right beside the cart.Here’s the scoopThe headline read Man Arrested Allegedly Trying to Sell Stolen Brains at Dairy Queen.Ž David Charles, 21, was charged in Indianapolis in January with arranging the deal involving 60 jars of mental patients brains (some from the 1800s) stolen from the Indiana Medical History Museum. The buyer (actually, an undercover cop) had agreed to meet at the restaurant. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

I stretched my hands in front of me and pantomimed clutching the air, in full melodramatic swing. I just keep wondering,Ž I said. Is this it?Ž Sarah gave me a good 2 seconds of sympathy before launching into tough love mode. You know what you need?Ž she said. I looked at her morosely. What?ŽYou need to start online dating.ŽWell, knock me over with a feather. Ive been saying that to Sarah for years, preaching the gospel of OK Cupid and after every one of her dateless Saturday nights. But for me? I dont know. Theres a new site,Ž Sarah said, called How About We ƒ Ž As in, How about we go to the local history museum? or How about we meet for cocktails and sushi? Prospective dates upload a photo and a few basic identifiers like height and age, then suggest an activity. It doesnt seem like much, but its still strangely revealing. I loved it immediately. Not that it mattered what I thought. Sarah already had her laptop out, ready to enter my information, and so I went along „ I who have never tried online dating, except a brief free trial where I was stood up for not one but two dates. And this new experience? Revolutionary. I felt like I had been invited to a party with every single guy in three counties. The possibilities seemed limitless. How about we meet for coffee after work?Ž How about we order Dominos and watch a movie? Its 50 percent off this week.ŽHow about we go trap shooting?ŽSome of the men were tall and some were short. Some were beefy and oth-ers skinny. Some had mustaches or full beards. There were long-haired hippie types and clean-cut professionals. Art-ists, writers, stockbrokers. Everyone had turned out. And they all wanted to go on a date. I did, too. In order to play, you have to submit your own date idea. I started to agonize. Should I suggest a muse-um? A dance club? A dinner spot? I turned to Sarah, my guru on this journey. Write whats in your heart,Ž she said. So I proposed, How about we hop on a plane and go somewhere weve never been (Bangkok? Prague?).Ž Then I nervously stowed the laptop and headed home. I went to bed more optimistic than I had been in weeks, and when the next morning dawned clear and sunny, my dark mood seemed to have stayed in Sarahs kitchen. My How About We account had an inbox full of potential dates. Life seemed suddenly brighter.I went to brunch at a friends house later in the day and every couple there had met online. When I confessed that I had thrown my own hat into the cyberdating ring, they congratulated me on my decision. Its exciting,Ž my friend said. She sat on the couch and opened her arms wide in a gesture that seemed to take in the whole world. Youve finally discovered the prom-ised land.Ž Q „ Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried WidowŽ published by Simon and Schuster. artis m y o n d a d U


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 B3 SOUTH MIAMI U.S. 1 & 73RD STREET 305.341.0092 | PEMBROKE PINES THE SHOPS AT PEMBROKE GARDENS 954.342.5454 PALM BEACH GARDENS DOWNTOWN AT THE GARDENS 561.340.2112 | RASUSHI.COM CONTRACT BRIDGEUnexpected defeat BY STEVE BECKERIn tournament circles, every expert has a favorite story about his encoun-ter with a pair of beginners who have decided to test the waters against the pros. Often these stories relate how the newcomers managed to put one over on the experts. One of these tales goes back to the time many years ago when two nov-ices, bubbling with excitement, sat down to play against two celebrated Life Masters in a pair championship. It wasnt really surprising that, as soon as the bidding was over, Novice No. 2 (East) led the queen of diamonds out of turn. The director was sum-moned and ruled that South could call the lead of any suit „ that was the rule in those days „ or treat the queen as an exposed card. South directed West to lead a club, but Novice No. 1, somewhat embar-rassed, stated he didnt have one to lead. Having selected his penalty, even though West could not comply, declar-er had no further recourse. Novice No. 1 was now told he could lead anything at all. So he shrewdly led a low diamond, knowing that his partner had the queen. East won with the jack „ the queen was back in his hand „ and returned a club, the suit West said he had none of. West ruffed and led another low diamond to Easts queen, whereupon a second club ruff gave the defenders their fourth trick. All over the room declarers were making four or five spades, but at this table declarer went down one, much to his dismay. The moral „ if there is one „ is not altogether clear, but South has devel-oped a certain degree of trepidation when he spots a pair of effusive begin-ners approaching his table. Q

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s ‘The King and I’ a glorious production BY BILL HIRSCHMANNot taking a thing away from Sondheim, Kander and Ebb or anyone else who followed them, but the Maltz Jupiter Theatres glori-ous production of The King and IŽ reminds you that when its done right, really right, nobody can touch Rodgers and Hammer-stein for well-crafted musical theater marked by heartfelt lyrics and soaring melody. Nothing underscores this truism so well as Marcia Milgrom Dodges direction. Her actors dont move around the stage very much when they sing. She just trusts the inner strength of the music and the talent of the cast to put across the meaning with a few hand motions, facial expressions and emo-tion swelling up from the gut. They just stand and deliver. But its as transporting as if they were racing around the set with arms flailing. And while Milgrom Dodge has some terrific talent to work with … notably Broad-way vet Michele Ragusa as Anna … she has superb raw material such as the procession of transcendent musical numbers: Shall We Dance,Ž Hello Young Lovers,Ž We Kiss In The ShadowsŽ and Something WonderfulŽ … unabashedly romantic sentiment whose purity makes it impossible to mock. As with Hello, Dolly!Ž two years ago, Milgrom Dodge and the Maltz team respect the tropes of the time-honored piece, but they dont try to recreate familiar productions. To a large degree, its nearly impossible to iden-tify precisely how they do it, but the work seems harvest fresh even though many of the songs and scenes are as iconic as the polka in Shall We Dance.Ž But then they deliver brilliant innovations. The often-boring and lengthy ballet The Small House of Uncle ThomasŽ (originally choreographed by Jerome Robbins) is trans-formed into a Thai shadow puppet play projected on a screen the size of the stage. Ornate puppets designed by Eric Wright of The Puppet Kitchen are deftly integrated with the movement of lithe dancers. The ingenious undertaking, storyboarded by Wright and Dodge, resulted in something evocative, exotic and unique. Yet the shows heart remains the clash of two strong-willed people … the imperious King of Siam and the proud English widow he hires to teach his many children and wives, trying in vain to create a harmoni-ous melding of the two cultures. It is both a poignant personal tale and a wise lesson in geo-political relations … with some cross-pollination of insights applicable to both situations. Of course, the score and lyrics are magnificent … arguably the teams best. It may not sound much like Southeast Asia, but Rodgers was at the top of his craft, frequently flipping the expected direction of a melody line to create a haunting, unforgettable moment. Hammersteins lyrics could be complex cork-screws to convey interior tumult such as the Kings A Puzzlement,Ž or be deceptively simple with emotionally-freighted phrases such as Something Wonderful.Ž You can hear those lessons in lyric writing in the work of his mentee Stephen Sondheim. Hammersteins book is a marvel. Unlike today when many librettos are just frame-works upon which to hang songs, Ham-merstein wrote long scenes as skillfully as any dramatist … more skillfully since he was forced to telescope events without making the transitions seem false. As expected, the Maltz has invested a huge amount in this production and its all there to see on stage. Start with a cast of 13 principal parts, 15 other adult actor/singer/dancers who play wives, priests, deckhands and puppeteers plus 12 royal children. Add nine musicians in the pit under Helen Greg-ory producing as full and flawless a sound as you can hope for. Thats the most bodies appearing in a Florida professional produc-tion in a long, long time. Credit them, too, for going out of their way to cast mostly Asian-Americans in the Asian parts, down to the children. Then appreciate how Milgrom Dodges vision is brought to life by the creative team. Leon Weibers scores of costumes encom-pass hoop skirts, glittering headdresses and gold-trimmed everything. Scenic designer Narelle Sissons evokes the alien world with impressionistic set pieces rather than the usual doomed attempt at real-istic throne rooms and the like. For instance, she adorns nearly invisible mesh drops with twisting golden tree trunks or abstract curv-ing tendrils, then adds in teak-looking plat-forms and gilt-covered emblems of power, all backed up by projected line drawings of a palace exterior or a huge statue of Buddha. It is a visual feast that forces the observer to respect the ancient, evolved culture that the Occidentals are contaminating. The sets look twice as opulent because of Matthew Rich-ards lighting plot. Dodges choreography is applied with restraint as an accent rather than an opportunity to show off. The visual excellence is equaled by the human component. Ragusa, who is well-known among professionals in the Broadway trenches, still isnt a household name. But she is a dead perfect match for the role of spirited Anna, the classic leading role for actresses who have left their apple-cheeked ingnue days behind. Her powerful and expressive voice eases into the songs so smoothly, you know you are in capable hands the moment she utters the first cascade of notes. Yet she invests the songs so completely with her actors honesty that they seem newly minted even though you could mouth the words along with her. She is closely matched by Wayne Hu, a veteran of non-traditional casting in regional productions. He struts across the stage exud-ing an autocrats Divine Right, but mixes his imperious tone with an appealing confusion about a world whose standards are eroding under him. While much of the score was written for Yul Brynner in that talky Rex Harrison rap mode, Hu exhibits a baritone as full and muscular as his bare broad shoul-ders. Most of the rest of the cast is blessed with near operatic voices and respectable acting chops. The standouts are Kay Trinidad as the doomed Princess Tuptim and Christine Toy Johnson as chief wife Lady Thiang. Another score of people deserve praise, but suffice it to say that the Maltzs end of the season show will be a tough ticket after word of mouth gets roiling.„ Bill Hirschman is editor of Florida Theater On Stage.

NoThis is not how you start a franchise.With Young Adult novels flying off shelves and The Hunger GamesŽ movies incredibly profitable, DivergentŽ could not come at a better time. And yet it does nothing besides lay limp on the screen, unsure of where to go and taking its sweet time getting there. Given all the hype, this is a true disappointment. In the distant future, after wars have destroyed the world and Chicago has been cordoned off from the rest of civili-zation, people belong to one of five fac-tions that serve the greater good: Mem-bers of Abnegation live to help others. The Erudite are the intelligentsia. The Dauntless are the fearless in charge of law and order. The Amity try to keep the peace. And the Candor value honesty above all else. As long as you belong to a faction youre fine; if youre Factionless, or worse Divergent „ meaning you possess traits from all five factions „ youre an outcast. Commitment to ones chosen faction is lifelong, and theres no going back should you choose to switch from what youre born into. The idea of forcing teenagers to make a lifelong commitment to any-thing seems foolish, but people believe the system works, which is essential to its longevity. Born into Abnegation, Tris (Shailene Woodley) chooses Dauntless for her life long path, much to the chagrin of her parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Gold-wyn). At Dauntless she makes a friend in Christina (Zoe Kravitz), an enemy in Peter (Miles Teller) and numerous fren-emies like Eric (Jai Courtney), all while falling for her trainer, Four (Theo James). Failure to complete training will leave her factionless, and therefore homeless, but youre a fool if you think the heroine of the story is going to end up homeless. Complications ensue when Tris discov-ers shes Divergent and being hunted by the Erudite, led by Jeanine (Kate Wins-let), who believes Divergents are a risk to their superiority. Director Neil Burgers (LimitlessŽ) post-apocalyptic setting is a visual bore. If ever a movie needed color, this is it. Everything is gloomy and dark, suggest-ing nothing but despair. Even the more futuristicŽ settings such as the Erudite headquarters are staid; theyre clean and polished, but certainly not snazzy. The lack of visual interest also puts more pressure on the story to be captivating, which it most definitely is not. In short, theres no sense of urgency or drama here. Theres too much lacka-daisical exposition prior to Tris choosing her faction, and then too much minutiae after the training begins. Worse, the con-flict with Erudite seems to come out of nowhere, as if writers Evan Daughterty and Vanessa Taylor absent-mindedly for-got to tease it early on so it wouldnt feel forced later. As for the action, its also a bore.

Caroline SeebohmAnn Norton The Gardens Conservancy is dedicated to preserving the historic beauty of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. "Who was the spirit behind the Gardens? That was my question when I embarked on the book. But I had no idea what a dramatic tale I would find…in fact, it's a modern fairy story, one of a talented young woman's steely determination to make art and find her ultimate fulfillment. How many times may we stumble upon such a happy ending?" Caroline Seebohm, author Norton from the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, N.Y., offers more than 60 paintings and works on paper by the likes of George Bellows, Robert Henri, Georgia OKeeffe and John Sloan. It follows the rivers course through New York City and through the history of the early 20th century. The 19th century had been a time of great expansion for the United States as the young nation began to look west-ward, and artists began to create a style that sought to capture the essence of the bold and the untamable and wow view-ers with their paintings of such natural wonders as Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. By the time the 20th century brought with it the modern age, it was machines that inspired awe in Americans. The railroads crossed the nation, carrying goods and people. Steamboats and ships plied the waterways and oceans, and airships and planes soon were to take to the skies. New York rapidly was becoming a home to tall buildings and a certain bridge that crossed the river from Man-hattan to Brooklyn had revolutionized travel throughout the city and its bor-oughs. In the artwork of the day, smoke billows from chimneys and train yards, inspiring the same kind of awe as the mountains and the waterfalls did half a century before. It was a heady time.Yet the exhibition starts with a 1918 painting by Gifford Beal that seems to look back to the 19th century. Its a nice transition picture because it has all those elements of the Hudson River School. This is the high lands of New York, about an hour north of the city,Ž said Bartholomew Bland, the Hud-son River Museums director of curato-rial affairs, who co-curated the show with Kirsten M. Jensen. That painting, titled On the Hudson at Newburgh,Ž has all the elements of the old Hudson River School, including the majestic mountains and the river, but this painting is as much about the people in it as it is about the landscape „ humans almost never dominate the scene in Hudson River paintings. Here, a woman and two children watch as troops muster. This is from the middle of World War I and the troops are going off to war,Ž Mr. Bland said during a tour of the exhi-bition. You can see them down here, with the flag, the regimented thing. The idea of that traditional kind of painting was being overwhelmed by events, that the modern world was starting up.Ž It makes sense that Beals work should be near the entrance to the exhibition. He was regarded as the last of the Hudson River painters. Some of them meant it in a derogatory way because he was quite conservative for this time,Ž Mr. Bland said. Times continued to change, and shortly after the painting was exhibited, Beal took it back and painted it over with one of the circus scenes for which he was known. This original, signed image was discovered and uncovered during conser-vation of the later painting. Another artist who has a part in this exhibition: Georgia OKeeffe. She and her husband, the great photographer Alfred Stieglitz, moved to New York City in 1925. Their apartment was on the 30th floor of the Shelton Hotel, whose 35 floors made it one of the tallest buildings of the time in Man-hattan. Of this she wrote, I know its unusual for an artist to want to work way up near the roof of a big hotel, in the heart of a roaring city, but I think thats just what the artist of today needs for stimulus.Ž That was a revelation for those who are used to her cow bones and other images from the Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. The bridges of New York also play an important part in this exhibition. The Brooklyn Bridge, built in 1883, was considered an engineering marvel. The curators played up the importance of the bridge, displaying four stan-zas of Hart Cranes poem, To Brooklyn Bridge.Ž It enriches the story of how important Brooklyn Bridge was at this time,Ž said Ellen Roberts, the Nortons Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Curator of American Art. The bridge still appears mammoth a century later. If youve been down to the waterfront area of South Street Seaport, which is now a tourist area, you still get a sense of the bridge looming over everything,Ž Mr. Bland said. The gothic arches of the bridge also lend a certain historicism. Thats why you see them painting it again and again and again from different angles and also using it for their poetry,Ž Ms. Roberts said of artists and writers who drew inspiration from that bridge, as well as the Queensborough Bridge. In a 1912 painting of that bridge by Leon Kroll, workers dump snow that had been cleared from the streets into the river. Its a very modern scene in some ways, then you look again and realize theyre dumping the snow from horse-drawn carts. Again, it underscores that transition from the 19th century to the 20th. Ralston Crawfords Whitestone Bridge,Ž from 1939-1940, completes that transition, depicting the Art Deco sus-pension bridge as one that seemingly travels into infinity, which, perhaps, is what great art does to begin with.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 B13 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia — dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.” A car buyer can log on to automax and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consum-ers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you don’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

AN ARTISTS LIFE In this series of occasional stories, visual and performing artists discuss their work habitsIt is apropos of everything that Joe Horton should have an exhibition March 27-April 10 at Bruce Webber Gallery in Lake Worth. After all, the space also is where he bought painting supplies five decades ago when he was a budding artist who attended Lake Worth High School. Mr. Horton is all grown up now, and is well regarded both for his portrait and landscape work. He and his partner, Michael McCafferty, divide their time between homes in Jupiter and Santa Fe. „ Scott Simmons What inspires you to work on your art? As a youngster, I was attracted to the great impressionist artists „ Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh particularly. The thought of creating something similar by studying nature, drawing, mixing colors, and then applying paint to a white canvas seemed to compel me to experiment. I discovered I had a knack for drawing and built my skills from a base of realistic representation. As I expanded my own appreciation of other painters styles, such as Egon Schiele and Gustave Klimt, I began to increase my own vision of the kinds of pictures I wanted to create. I even liked the processes of buying art materials, decid-ing what to paint, drawing the initial sketches, applying paint, and when the work was done, doing multiple critiques to strive for the perfect effect. I try to paint pictures that are pleasing, not shocking, using traditional techniques, not experimental innovation. Present-ing my work brings me great satisfac-tion and I am gratified to know when collectors buy my art that they want to enjoy it in their homes as a representa-tion of their own artistic sensibilities. Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? I always find a trip to an art gallery or muse-um a source of creative energy. I am inspired by the works and talent I see there. I leave a museum thinking I am proud to call myself an artist. In recent years, most of my impetus to paint derives from my traveling. For example, last December my partner and I took a cruise to Antarctica. It was an overwhelming experience for me and I returned to the studio with fantas-tic photographs of ice and rock, early morning sunrises and numerous species of penguins that I wanted to capture on canvas. I will have 10 oil paintings of Antarctica in my one-man show titled Extremes „ Lake Worth to Santa Fe.Ž Apart from icebergs, I will also show an additional 44 paintings of New Mexico, Florida, portraits and other images from my travels.HORTON

After I paint a picture, I begin a process of polishing. By polish-ing I mean sitting in front of the picture and examining it with a criti-cal eye. Each change or cor-rection is noted on a list. Nor-mally I will have at least 20 subtle changes to make the piece as near perfect as I can. I will make the corrections, and then repeat the whole cri-tiquing process until I sense that further changes will not improve the overall appearance of the painting. Then I stop. Admittedly, if I continued to examine the work as I strive for perfection, I will generally find a little something that is not just right. But I know I must stop, frame it and send it off to the gallery. When do you typically work? I am generally at the easel daily from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. whether Im inspired or not. Getting to the easel and facing a blank canvas is a discipline in itself. I find that even though I may not feel like painting that day, I must force myself to get to my studio and most often wonderful sur-prises are awaiting. Suddenly, my mind is transported into a world of color and design, a beautiful world I experience. With four years of art training at the Art Students League and National Academy of Design in New York City, I have spent many days outside painting plein air pictures. I have brought that knowledge to my indoor studio as I now choose to paint primarily from photographs. Not only do I use those hours in the studio to work, but I am also constantly at work with the camera and my eye, observing the world and recording what fascinates me for later transfer to canvas.

The show includes such hits from the 1983 movie as Flashdance „ What a Feeling,Ž Maniac,Ž Gloria,Ž ManhuntŽ and I Love Rock & Roll.Ž The book for this stage version is by Tom Hedley (co-writer of the original screenplay) and Robert Cary. Look for the series to go further back in time, 1934, to be exact, as it presents a revival of Cole Porters Anything GoesŽ March 10-15. This revival of the show set on an ocean liner won three Tony Awards in 2011, and youll probably want to sing along to such tunes as I Get A Kick Out Of You,Ž Youre the TopŽ and Anything Goes.Ž The Kravis heads from the ocean to the Mississippi for MemphisŽ (April 7-12). Set in the underground dance clubs of the 1950s, the show is about a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer hoping for her big break. The show won four Tony Awards in 2010. The season wraps with an acrobatic PippinŽ (April 28-May 3). The choreography of this show about a young prince on a journey to find meaning in his existence, takes a cue from the original by Bob Fosse, but the show is set in a circus with acrobatics designed by the Canadian troupe Les 7 Doigts De La Main. During a demonstration, one of the performers in the show, which won a 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, spun about the stage in a large metal hoop. Leave em laughing, some say; this show looks like it will leave audiences amazed. Q KRAVISFrom page 1 >> Kravis On Broadway series subscribers will receive their renewals in the beginning of April.

Accompanied by their beloved pointer, Judy, they departed New York City that July. Harpers Weekly traced its beginnings to John and James Harper, who estab-lished their first printing press in New York in 1817. Sixteen years later, two more siblings, Wesley and Fletcher, joined the company, and it became Harper and Brothers. The first issue of Harpers Weekly rolled off the presses in 1857. It offered its readers 16 folio pages filled with news of America and the world, all for 5 cents a copy. The news-paper became especially essential dur-ing the Civil War, as it set the standard for illustrated journalism in the United States. Chronicling the West for HarpersŽ showcases 100 illustrations that Mr. Frenzeny and Mr. Tavernier made for the magazine during their cross-coun-try assignment over a two-year period, 1873 and 1874. For readers around the world, these drawings brought to life the newly accessible territories, their diverse inhabitants and the turbulent, changing frontier. Author Claudine Chalmers, an independent historian, focuses on the life and work of these two remarkable men as they visited such places as Pittsburgh, Missouri, Texas, the Neosho Valley in Kansas, Fort Gibson in present-day Oklahoma, Colorado, Nebraska, Arizona and Utah, eventually ending their journey in San Francisco during the summer of 1874. The illustrations are extraordinary, from branding cattle in Texas to quar-rying stone for the new Mormon Tem-ple in Utah, and from Chinatown in San Francisco to encountering a prairie windstorm in Kansas. With pencil and woodblock, Mr. Frenzeny and Mr. Tav-ernier redefined American journalism and captured the American frontier as never before. Q n y d r w a T i p C z en

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B27The Dish: Classic Cheese Burger The Place: Hamburger Heaven, 1 N. Clematis St., Suite 130, downtown West Palm Beach; 655-5277 or The Price: $10.95 The Details: When we visited Hamburger Heavens new location, our inclination was to try something dif-ferent „ after all, the restaurant has a huge menu with everything from fried chicken to pasta to breakfast items. But it seemed only fitting to have a burger at Hamburger Heaven, and the restaurant delivered with a sandwich that was cooked to order at a perfect medium. The roll was nicely toasted and the fries were crisp on the outside, tender on the inside. Oh, and the restaurant still has that tasty red relish it had back in Palm Beach. Next time, we plan to save room for some of that lemon coconut cake. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE He owns one of the most popular local sub chains anywhere, or his name is not Jon Smith. The affable Mr. Smith got his start along Alternate A1A, just off of Northlake Boule-vard. Actually, its an interesting thing because Duffys, which is now a super successful sports bar, opened a sub shop in that location,Ž he said. We both started in the same location of 600 square feet on Alternate A1A.Ž That was in 1988, but it was not his first foray into food service. My first major business, I manufactured my own ice cream. We were the first ones in the country to make M&M ice cream. This was on Marthas Vineyard. We had a building and we had a sub shop there, in 1979.Ž That business did well enough, but his interests began to change. I ended up selling everything and my wife and I went into the horse-training circuit,Ž he said. When we came to Florida, I just fell in love with it.Ž He and his wife, Stephanie, have been together 36 years „ Mr. Smith was training and driving the horses and his wife was the groom. We decided we wanted to start a family, and I said unless they want to live in a doublewide, well need to start a business,Ž he said. The rest is history. He and his wife now live in a gated community near Palm Beach Gardens; their daughter is studying classical trombone at the Juil-liard School. I really started out as an independent with out a financial backing. The only thing I could claim was to make a product that was vastly superior to everyone elses,Ž he said. His formula:We get sirloin steak. We sliced it and created a marinade for it. We cook only to order, no lights. We even trim off the nub from the chicken breast,Ž he said. Its simply the only reason we have to exist. There really is quite a lot to it.Ž And he is not ambitious to expand. Very few chains can grow without the quality slipping,Ž he said. Once you start taking on investors and fran-chisees, the business becomes more and more about the franchise sale than about the operation.Ž The solution: Keep it in Palm Beach County. We have no offices, no secretaries. And all we do is make subs,Ž he said. Mr. Smith is proud to have 28 employees who have been with him for more than 10 years. They love what they do. We certainly pay them more,Ž he said. That goes back to his core philosophy. We dont have to be bigger. We dont have to be gigantic. We just have to own the whole pie and we do,Ž he said. Theres nothing we wouldnt do to make ourselves better.Ž Name: Jon Smith Age: 63 Original Hometown: Worcester, Mass. Restaurant: Jon Smith Subs, with eight locations from Jupiter to Boca Raton; Mission: Higher quality, bigger portions and better subs. Or as we like to say, One bite and youre mine.Ž Cuisine: Subs Training: My first job was manufacturing ice cream. Im really an aggres-sive guy when it comes to finding the things I want to do. Philosophy runs the business. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear sneakers all the time. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a res-taurateur or chef? If you do half the things you promise yourself youre going to do then youll be twice as suc-cessful as youre going to be. Today, people just go from job to job. Each of us can do something special if we just focus on it.

Together, the name ex-presses what Shen Yun aspires to achieve: an experience so beautiful and joyous that it evokes a sense of the heavens. Danceand Martial Artsa are from same origin and share the same pronunciation Shen Yun dances recount ancient myths, bygone he-roes, or celestial paradises. Whether set in the past or in contemporary China, every dance embodies traditional Chinese values. Ideals of loyalty, “lial piety, and veneration for the divine are cherished and cel-ebrated. Heroes are extolled for their compassion and tolerance as much as their courage or determination when facing adversity. Stories & History The love that they emit awakens your own heart. Its so highly cultured, so deeply artistic, so born of the spirit of the people.Ž Dr. Obadiah Harris, president of the Philosophical Research Society of LA Presented by Florida Falun Dafa Association, Inc.
