My arsenal includes a couple of shotguns, two rifles, a .44 magnum, a .22 pistol, and a Civil War-vintage musket. The genesis of my becoming a gun owner took place years ago, in the live oak forests of central Florida. As a young girl, I tagged along with my dad to go squirrel hunting. He had a fondness for the little nutcrackers, a taste I also acquired given the culinary skill with which he pre-pared the fixings: braised until fork-tender, smothered in gravy, spiked with plenty of salt and pepper, and then served over hot, b utter ed biscuits. If that sounds too gamey for a refined pal-ate, think again. It was fine Florida fare. We enjoyed hunting and being together in the great outdoors. Here in Florida, blessed as we are with an outdoor para-dise, there were plenty of opportunities to hunt. My dad was up for it all. We would rise before the sun and head into the woods, or the scrub, or the swamp, or the lake, and the hunt was on. I learned to hunt rabbit, deer, quail and turkey, too; and, in time, went solo on my own lowbrow expeditions. After marriage, I kept hunting and joined my rancher-spouse. He lived for deer season to roll around and was an avid woodsman. Because I hunted, I learned a deep respect for firearm safety and acquired a strong hunters code of ethics, accept-ing the profound responsibilities of gun ownership along with the hardware. I joined a class of enthusiasts who take seriously the obligation to steward and conserve the bounty of wildlife that ends up on many a dining table. I learned there was a standard of integrity at work in how hunting is practiced, there being always a class of yahoos who employ a stick of dynamite to fish or other methods to hunt that cheat their prey of a fighting chance. The hunters I know share a deep rever-ence and respect for wild things, under-standing how remarkable this heritage is in the face of modernity. Perhaps you will not find it surprising then, that my evolution as a hunter ended when I no longer took pleasure in taking away what I could not liter-ally give back. My last kill was a squir-rel eating a hickory nut at the top of a golden-lit tree, enjoying the first, warm rays of morning sunshine. I regret that shot even now. I put my guns away and still enjoy squirrels, but in my backyard at the bird feeder. Still, I understand why hunting and its corollary of gun ownership is an American tradition that goes back to our hunter-and-gatherer roots. What I do not understand is the National Rifle Associations (NRA) advocacy of gun ownership as a God-given right to be a vigilante; and every gun owner, a one-man or woman judge, jury and executioner to defend against anything or anyone they perceive as a threat. The NRA advances its cause based on an ideological plank that gov-ernment cant protect us and is a threat to our Second Amendment rights; but nobody goes hunting with a handgun or an AK47 unless the intended prey are people. We have plenty of tragic evidence that the NRAs morphing of gun ownership into the right to stand your ground is terribly wrong. Open season on people can be the only outcome of unfette red access to automatic weapons and high volume magazines and munitions cre-ated for one, singular purpose: to take life as fast and as furiously as possible. Add to the NRAs ceaseless chant of paranoia that only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun,Ž and now we are talking about guns in every public space where men, women and children are found or gather. The Florida legislature is busy adding to the insanity, ready to enact legislation that would extend Stand Your GroundŽ protection to people who fire a warning shot, as well as pass the so-called Pop-TartŽ bill to protect a childs right to nibble toaster pastries into pistols while at school. You cant make this stuff up. A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) report says the number of firearms manufac-tured in the U.S. and sold to Americans hit an all-time high in 2012. The report underscores Americans value firearms more than ever before; but what is deeply worrisome is the growing affec-tion they have for the kinds of fire-arms that gun control supporters have worked hard to ban „ the handguns and semi-automatic rifles that are kill-ing machines for anything but squirrels. You can thank the NRAs lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) for the proliferation of this weap-onry and the lack of success of those trying to staunch its unmitigated flow.

As the news industry observed its annual Sunshine WeekŽ in mid-March, The Associated Press report-ed that (m)ore often than ever, the administration censored government files or outright denied access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.Ž The AP report con-tinued, The governments efforts to be more open about its activities last year were their worst since President Barack Obama took office.Ž This comes as no surprise to Ryan Shapiro, a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technol-ogy, who just filed a federal law-suit against the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Agency, seek-ing public records pertaining to the U.S. role in the 1962 arrest of Nelson Mandela, which would land him in prison for 27 years. When his FOIA requests on Mandela were denied, he sued. Im pursuing these records,Ž he explained to me, mostly because Im interested in knowing why the U.S. intelligence community viewed Man-dela as a threat to American security and what role the U.S. intelligence community played in thwarting Man-delas struggle for racial justice and democracy in South Africa.Ž Shapiro filed a FOIA request with the NSA, seeking details on the arrest of Mandela over 50 years ago. The NSA wrote in reply, To the extent that you are seeking intelligence infor-mation on Nelson Mandela, we have determined that the fact of the exis-tence or nonexistence of the materials you request is a currently and prop-erly classified matter.Ž Half a century later? Shapiro also is seeking information on Mandelas placement on the U.S. terror watch list until 2008, which was years after he had served as South Africas first democratically elected president, years after he had won not only the Nobel Peace Prize, but the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal and U.S. Presidential Medal of Free-dom. I asked Shapiro why he was chasing down all these documents. The answer,Ž he replied, has to do with this blinkered understanding of national security, this myopic under-standing that places crass military alliances and corporate profits over human rights and civil liberties.Ž Shapiro has an interesting history, and a personal stake in the govern-ment labeling activists terrorists.Ž In 2002, Shapiro engaged in an act of civil disobedience, infiltrating a farm where ducks are raised for the pro-duction of foie gras, exposing what he calls horrific conditions which are the absolute norm on factory farms.Ž He said he and other activists openly rescued, or stole, animals from a fac-tory farm, made a movie about it. I did it as an act of civil disobedience, but its a real crime ... I did 40 hours of community service, and that was it.Ž Since that time, state after state has passed so-called Ag-Gag laws, which equate some animal-rights activism with terrorism, and which can include incredibly harsh prison sentences. He says his dissertation in progress, titled Bodies at War: Animals, the Freedom of Science, and National Security in the United States,Ž looks at the use of the rhetoric and appara-tus of national security to marginalize animal protectionists from the late 19th century to the present.Ž Shapiro is seeking a wealth of public docu-ments to answer the question. He has close to 700 FOIA requests before the FBI, seeking 350,000 documents, lead-ing the Justice Department to call him its most prolificŽ requester. The FBI has labeled part of his dissertation a threat to national security. In 2008, when campaigning, Barack Obama was often touted as a constitu-tional-law professor. As such, we can assume he studied writings of one of that documents authors, James Madi-son, the fourth president of the U.S., considered the Father of the Bill of Rights.Ž Madison wrote, in 1822, A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquir-ing it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both.Ž With Edward Snowdens revelations of mas-sive NSA spying and surveillance, and the administrations abysmal record on transparency, President Obama has tragically moved well beyond farce. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,200 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.The foolish anti-vaccine cause In a feat that would have been unimaginable a few decades ago, the anti-vac-cine movement has managed to breathe life into nearly vanquished childhood diseases. It took all the ingenuity and know-how we are capable of to find safe, effective ways to dramatically diminish diseases like measles and whooping cough in the developed world; it took all the hysteria and willful ignorance we are capable of to give them a boost. A developer of the measles vaccine, Dr. Samuel Katz, says the question is not whether we shall see a world without measles, but when.Ž Not if Jenny McCarthy has anything to say about it. The former Playboy model and current co-host of The ViewŽ is a leading light of the anti-vaccine move-ment. She has a boy with autism-like symptoms that she is convinced were caused by the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella. You can credit her passion for her child, sympathize with her heartbreak „ and still cringe at her wholly irrational cause. No amount of discrediting makes a difference. One theory was that a preser-vative in childrens vaccines called thi-merosal was causing autism. But the U.S. removed thimerosal from most child-hood vaccines in 2001. If the theory had been sound, this should have reduced cases of autism. It didnt. Cases have con-tinued to rise, and the same held true in Canada and Denmark after eliminating thimerosal in the 1990s. Another theory, latched onto by McCarthy, is that the MMR vaccine in particular causes autism. Dr. Andrew Wakefield publicized this supposed link in a famous article in the British med-ical journal The Lancet. It has since been thoroughly debunked. The Lancet retracted Wakefields paper, and the Brit-ish Medical Journal reported that he fal-sified data.Ž He had his medical license revoked. All of which should have been enough to give the anti-vaxxers pause. Nonetheless, they fight on. In a recent interview with the Fox Business Net-work, former MTV star Kristin Cavallari plugged the anti-vaccination cause, cit-ing booksŽ and studies.Ž Most parents dont listen. Only 1.8 percent of kindergartners get exempted from vaccinations, according to NBC News. But the number is much higher in some states. The more kids go unvac-cinated, the greater the chance that dis-eases can get a foothold. They usually are imported from abroad, but the absence of vaccination is a boon to their spread. A study in the journal Pediatrics found that the 2010 whooping-cough outbreak in California „ when the state had the highest num-ber of cases since 1947 „ hit hardest in areas with high levels of nonvaccination. In 2013, measles cases tripled nation-wide. In the panic created by the Wakefield article, England saw MMR vaccination rates fall to 80 percent in 2004 and Wales to 78 percent. In 2012, England and Wales had the highest number of measles cases in 18 years. These are dangerous illnesses, and the victims of an outbreak are often infants too small to have yet received vaccina-tions. Jenny McCarthy styles herself a mother warrior.Ž If so, the kids sickened in the fallout from reduced vaccinations are the victims of friendly fire. Nothing good can come from undoing one of the miracles of medical progress. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickEvery year, I go to Global Pet Expo, the industrys largest tradeshow. Every year, I think it cant possibly have anything new and that spending on pets cant possibly continue to rise. And every year, I am wrong. At the annual show in Orlando last month, more than 3,000 new products debuted to an audience of 5,300-plus pet-product buyers from around the world. Thats just astounding. Even more astounding are the petrelated spending statistics. Bob Vetere, president and CEO of the American Pet Products Association, says that last year, overall spending came in at more than $55.7 billion, up 4.5 percent from 2012. People spent the most on food, followed by veterinary care. Something I think is really interesting is the projected growth in pet insurance. Spending is expected to grow from $650 million currently to more than $870 mil-lion by next year. Vetere attributes the continued growth in spending on pets to a recovering economy, increasing knowl-edge about the positive effects pets have on human health and, most important, concern for pets well-being. I have no doubt that the growth in spending is also related to the inventive-ness of pet-product manufacturers. As my team and I made our way through the show hall, we kept our eyes out for innovative new products that help dog and cat owners solve problems and offer good value. Were all seasoned veterinarians and pet professionals, so its tough to impress us, but we found a number of products that met those criteria for our fifth-annual Beckers Best awards: the top 10 most interesting and useful products we see.

Unleash the suit and tie, the fancy gown, the achy shoes, and the for-mal dinner at this casual and relaxed, season-ending event, to be held Sunday, April 13 at 7 p.m. at Club Colette on Palm Beach Island. Its just going to be a nice wind down to the end of the season,Ž said Laurie Raber Gottlieb, who is one of the events chairs and a member of the board of directors for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. At the end of the season, a lot of people are sick of getting dressed up in the normal attire. The guys dont even have to put on a jacket or tie,Ž says Ms. Raber Gottlieb, of the second annual event. Ms. Raber Gottlieb and her fellow Off the Leash chairs, Nellie Ben-oit, Carol Garvy, and Joanie Van der Grift, are onto some-thing with their casual spin on a Palm Beach fundraiser. Last years inaugural Off the Leash event raised $125,000 … no easy feat for a first-time fundraiser held in a cozy private club with a limited capacity. Last year, the whole committee worked really hard to get everyone involved,Ž said Ms. Raber Gottlieb. The owner of Club Colette, Dan Ponton, is a big animal lover „ so his support has been great, too. A lot of people are famil-iar with the programs of Peggy Adams, so its easy to get people to come.Ž Off the Leash is a mission-centric event for the League „ which has served the animals in Palm Beach County continuously since 1925. It has become a community institution with a staggering local impact. In 2013, the League provided services for 29,325 dogs, cats, puppies and kit-tens, including spay and neuter, animal adoption, training classes, and Fidos Food Bank, which provides financially struggling families with a way to feed their pets. Adoption will be one of the focuses at Off the Leash, which will have the Peggy Adams pet mobile on-hand, along with a receiving line of adoptable pets as guests arrive for dinner and dancing. Last year, I think four animals were adopted at the event,Ž said Ms. Raber Gottlieb. This year, if we could do the same or better, we would love that. It would be wonderful if people can find a forever friend out of Off the Leash.Ž Ms. Raber Gottlieb herself, a 13-year volunteer for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, has rescued many stray cats. I know how powerful the human-animal bond is, and I always thought it was sad to be euthanizing so many adoptable animals in our community,Ž she says about why she got her start volunteering for the organization more than a decade ago. I saw that Peggy Adams main focus is spaying and neutering so we dont have to put healthy animals down. They have a great adoption program and they try very hard to get animals into loving homes, and thats something that was very important to me too.Ž The nonprofit Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League recently announced a collaboration with Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control on a program called Countdown to Zero.Ž The goal of the program is to not have to euthanize any healthy, adoptable animals in Palm Beach County. To meet that goal in the next 10 years, Peggy Adams will spay and neuter as many animals as possible at a low cost. By attending the fun and casual event, people will be able to help sup-port the programs at Peggy Adams and save animals lives,Ž explained Ms. Raber Gottlieb. Tickets to Off the Leash are $250. Sponsorship opportunities are available. To make a reservation, call 472-8845 or visit peggyadams.org.

Kelli Testimonials Special Announcement for Florida Singles by Kelly Leary, your local matchmakerPalm Beach Zoo employees reduce carbon footprint SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYEmployees at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society are taking action to reduce the zoos overall carbon foot-print as part of a fuel reduction initiative, and they have already saved greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 0.71 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Since the launch on Feb. 3, employees have saved 75 gallons of fuel, with the ultimate goal of reaching 100 gallons saved per month. Employees are encouraged to carpool, or find alternative ways to come in to work at the Zoo, such as safely walking or bicycling. Andrew Aiken, president and CEO for of zoo, said one of the best ways to exemplify the zoos mis-sion of inspiring people to act on behalf of wildlife is by employees taking action themselves and making environ-mentally friendly choices as frequently as possible. We have to lead by example,Ž Mr. Aiken said in a prepared statement. If we can save 100 gallons of fuel per month, thats approximately one ton of carbon that we didnt emit into the atmosphere, which is good for wildlife.Ž Saam Aiken, conservation research associate for the zoo, surveyed staff members to establish a baseline of fuel consumption, and created a private Facebook page for employees to post their actions for encouragement and accountability. So far, almost half of the zoos staff has collectively performed 210 envi-ronmental acts to save fuel,Ž he said in the prepared statement. We dont need everybody to do a conservation act every single day, although that would be ideal. We simply encourage employ-ees to take at least one fuel reduction action per month. It only takes a little effort from everyone to get a lot accom-plished.Ž The Zoological Society of the Palm Beaches states its mission is to inspire people to act on behalf of wildlife and the natural world. It advances that through endangered species propaga-tion, education and support of conser-vation initiatives in the field, it says. The Palm Beach Zoo is at 1301 Summit Blvd. in West Palm Beach. The Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, except Thanksgiving and Christmas. For more information, see palmbeachzoo.org.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYYou dont realize how much sleep youre losing until its corrected and you get a good nights sleep,Ž Mrs. Cantwell says. You dont realize what youre missing.Ž Mrs. Cantwell lives in Arcadia. She went to the Sleep & Pulmonary Cen-ter of Florida in Port Charlotte. Her sleep apnea „ repeated long pauses in breathing during sleep „ was treated with continuous positive airway pres-sure therapy, called CPAP in todays lexicon, a treatment that uses a machine to keep airways open while someone sleeps. Sleep feels like it did when I was younger, when I didnt have all this stuff to deal with, when I could go to sleep and get a good nights sleep,Ž Mrs. Cantwell says. I would not go any-where without my sleep machine. If I go away for one night, I take it with me ƒ Once youve felt the effects of a good nights sleep with a machine, you dont want to go without it again. It makes that big of a difference.Ž Mrs. Cantwell grew up around farmers. She says everyone went to bed before dark in the summertime. Every-one woke up before the sun. She does not recall her parents or her grandpar-ents complaining of sleep problems. She says if they had any, they kept quiet about it. Mrs. Cantwell believes more people suffer from sleepiness today, saying, People have a different lifestyle than they used to have. The stress, the hustle and bustle of everything in everybodys life nowadays, more people cant sleep and theyre more aware of it.ŽSleep-deprived nation A recent study shows a doubling of doctor visits for sleeplessness and more than a sevenfold increase in the diag-noses of insomnia from 1993 to 2007. Prescriptions for sleep medications have increased subsequently, with a striking 30-fold increase in prescriptions for nonbenzodiazepine sedative hypnot-ics, like Ambien, during this time. (The study ran in the February issue of the journal SLEEP, published online by the Associated Professional Sleep Societies LLC, a joint venture of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 50 to 70 mil-lion American adults have sleep or wakefulness disorder.Ž Americans spent $3 billion on prescription sleep aids in 2007, according to Consumer Reports. And according to IMS Health, a lead research firm that tracks pharmaceuti-cal sales, 60 million prescriptions for sleeping pills were prescribed in 2011. The numbers stir up questions: People in the 1950s couldnt sleep either, right? Are we over-diagnosed? Are we over-prescribed? Dr. Jose Colon, an author and sleep disorder specialist practicing in South-west Florida, says the answer lies in cave art. The caveman that slept through the night and knew how to stop and smell the roses, that caveman did not make it through evolution,Ž he says. The agitated one, the anxious one, the one that would fight, thats the one that lived and that is the genetic basis for todays humanity.Ž The way Dr. Colon renders it, the caveman who stayed awake stayed alive; thereby, insomnia is not a modern prob-lem, but an inherited characteristic. He says scholarly references to insomnia go way back. The term agrypnia was the Scottish word for insomnia,Ž Dr. Colon says. Agrypnia was originally described as a vigil before certain feasts, the rite of staying awake for devotional purposes. It was described in the Study of Medicine in 1822 as irritative wakefulness, sleep retarded by mental excitement.Ž Dr. Colon says 30 to 40 percent of people experience insomnia on a regu-lar basis. He says 90 percent of people have experienced adjustment insomnia. Life circumstances,Ž he explains. A death in the family, or thinking some-ones cheating on you, something has occurred and youve had a sleepless night or two.Ž He feels the other 10 percent are in denial, like the potbelly dude at the gym who walks up to the mirror, sucks in his gut and goes, Yeah! then keeps on walking.Ž A couple of points Dr. Colon likes to make: Insomnia is more commonly diag-nosed in women. Anxiety is more com-monly diagnosed in women. Alcoholism is more commonly diagnosed in men. I dont think we have different problems,Ž he says. I think the approach is differ-ent.Ž More than anything, Dr. Colon wants people to understand: Insomnia is not a disorder. It is a symptom.Ž He says patients ask him every day, Please, tell me some kind of vitamin I can take or something thats going to help.Ž Listen,Ž he answers, Fred, hes fatigued. Why? Hes got scurvy. He needs Vitamin C. Fredericka, shes fatigued. Why? Shes got anemia. She needs iron.Ž He carries on with examples, then circles back, So even though people say, There must be something, some kind of mineral or something, what are you treating?Ž Again, he reiterates, Insomnia is a symptom. It is not a disease. Its a symp-tom.ŽMind over medicineThrough his practice, Dr. Colon says he came to the realization that medica-tions do not work for sleep in the long run. He found that behavioral sleep medicine and psychological therapies do work. He started to study mindful-ness and meditative techniques so he could teach his patients how to elicit their own relaxation response. I thought to myself for every patient that Im helping, how many are not being helped?Ž Dr. Colon says. How many communities have nobody who cares but are just passing out the candy?Ž This served as the catalyst for Dr. Colon to found Paradise Sleep, an orga-nization intent on educating the public in sleep, and write his book The Sleep Diet: A Novel Approach to Insomnia,Ž a play on words, as he wrote a novel, feeling character explorations would be more applicable than some self-help-book list of instructions. The first chapter in his book curses Ambien. I loathe it,Ž Dr. Colon says. Ambien does not stop your racing thoughts, it doesnt stop your agitation, it doesnt stop your anxiety, it doesnt stop the reason youre not sleeping. It does sedate you ƒ And it dampens the blood flow and activity of your hippocampus, your memory area.Ž He says thats how a woman drives to her ex-boyfriends house with no recollection, how sleep-eating disorders occur, how people send texts and emails that make no sense. Studies have shown on the initiation of CPAP, a short-term dose of Ambien helps with CPAP tolerance. Studies have also shown that Ambien helps someone with anxiety fall asleep, Dr. Colon says, so under those circumstances, he will prescribe it, in conjunction with behavioral sleep medicine, relaxation techniques. Last year the Food and Drug Administration recommended lowering the bed-time dose of zolpidem drugs, like Ambi-en, because data showed blood levels in some patients were high enough the morning after to impair activities that require alertness, such as driving. But to be fair, the FDA reminded the public that all drugs taken for insomnia could impair driving and activities alertness. Drowsiness is listed as a common side effect on the labels of all insomnia drugs. Another point, I feel over-the-counter sleep aids are gateways towards long-term chemical dependence,Ž Dr. Colon says. Its like that commercial „ when your cable doesnt work, you get frus-trated. When you get frustrated, you play racquetball. When you play rac-quetball, you get a black eyeƒ When you wear an eye patch, people want to see how tough you areƒ And you wind up in a ditch. When you start on a sleep aid, you end up on a chemical dependency. Youre going to end up on an antide-pressant eventually,Ž Dr. Colon draws the scenario out until theres less human bonding, And when you do that, were creating a world without love.Ž Latin roots of the word apneaŽ mean without breath.Ž Whenever patients exhibit sleep apnea denial, Dr. Colon says this dia-logue plays out: He asks patients: Is breathing important?Ž Patients always say, Yes.ŽHe asks patients: Is sleeping important?ŽPatients always say, Yes.ŽHes got them there. He makes them laugh. Then makes them think.SLEEPFrom page 1COLON “If you only slept five hours, your day is not ruined. The first four hours of sleep are the core hours, the most refreshing part. That’s going to let you live the next day. If you had a bad week, don’t sleep in. Wake up at the same time. Let that sleepiness push you to fall asleep earlier the next evening. You will reach that deep sleep earlier and you will stay in that deep sleep longer.” — Dr. Jose Colon, sleep specialist

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 NEWS A11 Diagnosing problemsNeal Nay, manager of the Sleep Disorder Center at Jupiter Medical Cen-ter, says medical professionals believe 90 percent of sleep apnea cases are still undiagnosed. Mr. Nay says reluc-tance plays a part in this. He feels people are fearful to undergo a sleep test and less than enthusiastic about the treatment. Repeatedly, he hears people say: Youre going to tell me I need that mask thingy and I dont want that.Ž Or hell hear people confess: Ive had this prescription from my doctor for six months, maybe a year, and Ive been carrying it around. I really need to go do this (sleep test).Ž I hate to slander my own gender,Ž Mr. Nay says, but this is the middle-aged-male mindset: If I dont know about it, it cant hurt me.Ž The sleep rooms at the sleep center look like hotel rooms, decorated with a wardrobe, nightstands, paintings of ocean waves. Thats my contribution,Ž says Mr. Nay, pointing to a flat-screen TV. Middle-aged men by and large dont want to go to the hospital or have a test done unless theyre having crushing chest pains, so we have to lure them in.Ž If a patients feeling trepidatious, Mr. Nay invites him to the sleep center to come have a look-see. They have an image in their mind that were going to strap them to a gurney and shine lights on them in a real clinical-like room and tell them to sleep,Ž he says. A lot of them walk in here, look at the TV and go, OK, I can do this.Ž Mr. Nay says many people deny their sleepiness, telling themselves: Yeah, Im tired, but I work hard.Ž Other sleep apnea symptoms include feeling tired and fatigued throughout the day, loud snoring, freight-train-like snoring, lead-ing their bed partners to suffer their own sleep disorders from the noise and move out of the bedroom. This marital dynamic has become so common Mr. Nay says hes heard contractors are designing homes with his-and-her master bedrooms, like his-and-her sinks, because more and more partners are sleeping apart. Mr. Nay pulls up the sleep study of a classic patient,Ž a middle-aged male, slightly overweight. Me,Ž he jokes. He shows how seismic waves, like heart-rate-monitor lines, measure eye move-ments, brainwaves, muscle tone, leg movements, snoring, oxygen, breathing and heart activity. Mr. Nay can see a leg twitch in these lines. He can see a snore. He can see an apnea „ thats when it flatlines, thats when the patient stops breathing. This causes an arousal response in the brain, a reflex that wakes you up when you stop breathing, its what protects you when somebody puts a pillow over your head, a fight-or-flight response,Ž Mr. Nay says. (Sleep apneas) like some-body holding your head under water until you force yourself up, thats basically what youre doing. You wake up in five or six seconds, catch your breath, big, loud „ see the snoring „ big, loud, huge waves, waking up your bed part-ner. When theres no airflow, its pretty quiet. Its when you recover, thats when you make a noise.Ž The man in the sleep study starts having apnea after apnea, one after another. His results show 60 apneas an hour. Hes waking up and catching his breath once a minute. Mr. Nay says a sleep study accrues about a thousand pages. Scrolling through the pages on his computer screen, he starts musing about sleep. He views sleepiness as a modern epidemic. He sees the American attitude toward sleep as particularly hostile. He says theres a natural temperature dip in the afternoon that makes you sleepy. He says a lot of people blame this on lunch, but when that temperature dip hits your circadian rhythm, it makes you tired. In many cultures around the world, two oclock in the afternoon, everybody shuts down their business and takes a siesta. Even in England, they have tea-time where everybody stops working,Ž Mr. Nay says. In America, we go to Starbucks and drink powerful caffeine beverages to counteract the sleepiness.Ž His mind traces back to the invention of the electric light. Edison invented the light bulb, but he also had a disdain for sleep. He thought it was a complete waste of time,Ž Mr. Nay says. Edison also invented the night shift, which is really interesting.Ž He thinks of how electric light suppresses melatonin. Melatonin is the sleep hormone,Ž Mr. Nay says. Its secreted by the pineal gland in your brain ƒ Its the hormone that makes you sleep ƒ They call it the Dracula hor-mone, because it comes out at night.Ž From Dracula to Dickens, he talks about when sleep apnea made its first literary cameo. Sleep apneas origi-nal name was Pickwickian Syndrome because Charles Dickens described a person with sleep apnea in one of his books,Ž he says. In The Pickwick Papers, a character named Joe was known to fall asleep at the drop of a hat and snore very loudly.Ž From Dickens to present day, Mr. Nay says people go on an hour less sleep than their grandparents did. He says theres no biological evidence that peo-ple need less sleep; people just choose to go without it. Their attitude being: I can go without sleep. I can get more done.Ž He believes past generations had sleep apnea, they just didnt have a name for it. I have a lot of patients that say, My dad had this and my mom com-plained about it and the doctor told her, Shut up. Youre not being a good wife,Ž Mr. Nay says.Evolution of a maskBack to the sleep study, the mans oxygen levels are falling. Hes hav-ing arrhythmias from the stress on his heart in his efforts to breathe. Sleep center staff intervene. They wake up the patient and fit him with a CPAP mask to provide continuous positive airway pressure.Ž Mr. Nay likens the treatment to driving your car 60 mph and sticking your head out the window. You have air rushing in your nose and its a little bit higher pressure than what youre used to, but you can still exhale out against it,Ž he says. Mr. Nay says he was privy to the beginnings of CPAP. Working at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, he remembers a patient with unlimited resources.Ž The man had been diag-nosed with sleep apnea. A tracheostomy had been recommended to create an opening through his neck to his wind-pipe. The patient wanted no part of that, so he flew over the Australian doctor who had developed CPAP. Mr. Nay describes those first CPAP masks as crude, cumbersome, made out of fiberglass. The patient didnt like that, so he said, Lets call NASA. Theyre good with masks. This was in the early space shuttle days,Ž says Mr. Nay, who has been in the sleep field for more than 30 years. Lets call up NASA, we all went, Ha! But he made one phone call and the next day there was a guy from NASA there ƒ So we worked with a guy from NASA for a little while trying to handcraft a mask for this man, until it became FDA approved ƒ I stumbled in as a student ƒ It was a Forest Gump thing, like a happy coincidence that I was there.Ž Now CPAP masks are made as soft as a pillow. Looking at the seismic waves of sleep after the sleep study patient was suited up with a CPAP mask, Mr. Nay says, Thats what sleep should look like.Ž Stable heart rate, continual breath-ing, the man drifts from REM to deep, deep sleep. See all that REM, thats called REM rebound effect,Ž Mr. Nay says. He had no REM at all before that. Once you give him an open airway and the ability to breathe during sleep, hell go into REM and stay there for hours. Thats why some patients wake up and want to con-quer the world. You feel so good after you have the solid block of REM, you want to go paint your house.Ž Mr. Nay says the sleep center tests an average of 25 to 30 patients a week, coming close to reaching their capacity of 120 patients a month. Mr. Nay says if patients experience REM rebound and delta rebound, that deep, coma-like sleep, Those are the guys that are going to wake up and be very happy, like, Give me that machine as fast as you can. They may come in reluctant, saying, I dont know, but theyll leave literally saying, Give me that machine as fast as you can.Ž Q NAY How much sleep do you need?Dr. Jose Colon likes analogies. I weigh twice as much as my wife, but she eats twice as much as I do,Ž he says. You cant tell me our metabolisms are the same.Ž He says its the same with sleep. Every person has different sleep needs. Here are some general rules of thumb:Q A 12-month old should sleep about 12 hours. Q A 10-year old should sleep about 10 hours. Q A ninth-grader should sleep about nine hours. Q When you have a 9-to-5 job and work eight-hour days, you should sleep about eight hours. Q When youre in your 70s, you should sleep about seven hours and reintroduce naps. Q

I-RESOLUTION MAGIC BUS THE SWEET CHARIOTS ANCIENT SUN Gene sequencing allows doctors to discover a new syndrome BY THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA National Institutes of Health researchers have identified gene variants that cause a rare syndrome of sporadic fevers, skin rashes and recurring strokes, begin-ning early in childhood. The teams dis-covery coincides with findings by an Israeli research group that identified an overlapping set of variants of the same gene in patients with a similar type of blood vessel inflammation. The NIH group first encountered a patient with the syndrome approximate-ly 10 years ago. The patient, then 3 years old, experienced fevers, skin rash and strokes that left her severely disabled. Because there was no history of a similar illness in the family, the NIH group did not at first suspect a genetic cause, and treated the patient with immunosup-pressive medication. However, when the NIH team evaluated a second patient with similar symptoms two years ago „ a child who had experienced recur-rent fevers and six strokes by her sixth birthday „ they began to suspect a com-mon genetic cause and embarked on a medical odyssey that has led not only to a diagnosis, but to fundamental new insights into blood vessel disease. In their study, which appears in the Feb. 19, online edition of the New Eng-land Journal of Medicine, the research-ers describe how next-generation genome sequencing, only recently avail-able, facilitated a molecular diagnosis for patients in their study. The research-ers found that harmful variants in the CECR1 gene impede production of a protein vital to the integrity of healthy blood vessel walls. This discovery is another example of genome sequencing playing a central role in revealing the genomic basis for an important rare disease,Ž said Eric D. Green, M.D., Ph.D., direc-tor of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), where the lead members of the research team are based. Such studies illustrate how genomics is paving the way to improved human health.Ž The researchers showed that faulty variants in their patients DNA that encode the CECR1 gene cause a loss of function of the genes ability to produce of an enzyme called adenosine deami-nase 2 (ADA2). Without it, abnormali-ties and inflammation in blood vessel walls result. The researchers call the new syndrome, deficiency of ADA2, or DADA2. The enzyme ADA2 is chemical-ly similar to the enzyme ADA1, whose deficiency results in severe combined immunodeficiency disease. NHGRI Scientific Director Daniel Kastner, M.D., Ph.D., led the team of collaborators from NIH and beyond in mounting the study of nine patients. It has been incredibly fantastic to see this kind of progress being made within the last decade,Ž he said. Our study rais-es the possibility that the ADA2 path-way may contribute to susceptibility to stroke in the more general population.Ž For children, as with adults, stroke can affect physical, cognitive and emo-tional functioning. Some o utcomes, such as blindness and deafness, can be lasting; others, such as the ability to walk, can be relearned. The collaboration that brought the discovery of this new syndrome to light included researchers from NHGRI and five additional NIH institutes.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH study finds regular aspirin use may reduce ovarian cancer riskWomen who take aspirin daily may reduce their risk of ovarian cancer by 20 percent, according to a study by sci-entists at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. However, further research is needed before clinical recommendations can be made. The study was published this month in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. It is estimated that more than 20,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2014, and more than 14,000 will die from the disease. Early stage ovarian cancer may be successfully treated. However, symp-toms associated with this disease can mimic more common conditions, such as digestive and bladder disorders, so for this reason and others, it is often not diagnosed until it has reached advanced stages. Late stage ovarian cancer leaves women with limited treatment options and poor prognoses, making preventive strategies potentially important for con-trolling this disease. Chronic or persistent inflammation has been shown to increase the risk of cancer and other diseases. Previ-ous studies have suggested that the anti-inflammatory properties of aspirin and non-aspirin NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), may reduce cancer risk overall. However, studies examining whether use of these agents may influence ovarian cancer risk have been largely inconclusive. This is the largest study to date to assess the rela-tionship between these drugs and ovar-ian cancer risk. Britton Trabert, Ph.D., and Nicolas Wentzensen, M.D., Ph.D., of NCIs Divi-sion of Cancer Epidemiology and Genet-ics, and their colleagues, analyzed data pooled from 12 large epidemiological studies to investigate whether women who used aspirin, nonaspirin NSAIDs, or acetaminophen have a lower risk of ovarian cancer. These 12 studies (nine from the United States) were part of the Ovarian Cancer Association Con-sortium. The scientists evaluated the benefit of these drugs in nearly 8,000 women with ovarian cancer and close to 12,000 women who did not have the disease. The researchers determined that participants who reported daily aspirin use had a 20 percent lower risk of ovarian cancer than those who used aspirin less than once per week. For nonaspirin NSAIDs, which include a wide variety of drugs, the picture was less clear: the scientists observed a 10 percent lower ovarian cancer risk among women who used NSAIDs at least once per week compared with those who used NSAIDs less frequently. However, this finding did not fall in a range that was sig-nificant statistically. In contrast to the findings for aspirin and NSAIDs, use of acetaminophen, which is not an anti-inflammatory agent, was not associated with reduced ovarian cancer risk. This study adds to a growing list of malignancies, such as colorectal and other cancers, that appear to be poten-tially preventable by aspirin usage. Adverse side effects of daily aspirin use include upper gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke. Therefore, a daily aspirin regimen should only be undertaken with a doctors approval, caution the scientists. For more information about cancer, visit the NCI website at www.cancer.gov or call NCIs Cancer Information Service at (800)-4-CANCER (800) 422-6237). Q HEALTHY LIVINGFind the trigger to end emotional eatingThat sweater clearly doesnt fit you anymore. Do you really think you should wear it?Ž Kristin hated when her father made disparaging comments about her weight. He had this disdainful way of looking her over, and then either making a snide remark, or perhaps even worse, saying nothing at all. Either way, Kristin knew it bothered her father that she wasnt slim and athletic like her sister April. But, what could she do about that anyway? Kristin brooded the whole day. After dinner, she went miserably up to her room and locked the door. Shed snuck the Oreos from the pantry earlier and now defiantly devoured them. She knew that she was deliberately trying to get back at her father for his cutting words. But the one shed hurt the most was herself. She knew shed hate herself in the morning. But somehow or other she got to this negative place, and couldnt stop herself.Many of us learn from an early age that eating special foods can bring com-fort. We may turn to food in an attempt to sooth emotional problems. On the short-run this may calm our distress, but as we unfortunately know so well „ in the long run we often find ourselves spiraling down to a cycle of regret and self-doubt. Next, we blame ourselves for not having better control and self-respect. Overeating is often situational and can be triggered by feelings and cir-cumstances. Sometimes, we are social overeaters, and eat because we want to be part of the group and are encouraged by others to eat things we know we shouldnt. We may not know how to say no to the gooey cake offered at a birthday celebration or dont want to hurt a hostesss feelings when shes slaved to make a special dinner. We may also mindlessly eat just becauseŽ the opportunity is there and the food is placed temptingly in front of us, ie. passed hordeuvres, or a buf-fet at a party. Some activities have food associated with them: Do we go to the movies and pass up butter ed popcorn? But much of the time, we overeat when we are consumed by feelings of depression, anger, anxiety, boredom or loneliness. We may therefore con-sume excessive quantities as a source of comfort, but oftentimes, in reality, as a misguided means of softening the intensity of the feelings or filling a void. Sometimes we may feel so badly about ourselves, we justify overeating by say-ing: Whats the point?Ž We may feel so discouraged or hopeless we resign our-selves to contributing to demoralizing behaviors that sabotage our self-esteem, convinced that nothing will improve. But unfortunately, we may have now added a burdensome layer of guilt and self-loathing to the mix. Some experiences may feel so frightening or dangerous we are not able to face them head on, so we avoid the feel-ings at all cost. We may reach for the comfort of our beloved foods, and for the short while, we may feel protected and safe. Sadly, we may not have learned more effective tools of processing these emotional upsets. Sandy Livingston, a dietitian/nutritionist in private practice in Palm Beach Gardens notes: Oftentimes people believe they need the food to numb the discomfort, and they feel powerless over these feelings, but thats not neces-sarily the case.Ž Overeating becomes a distressing habit that prevents us from learning skills that can effectively help us to resolve our emotional distress. If we are willing to work diligently at it, like any other habit, we should be able to make sustainable changes. The challenge, of course, is to identify the triggers that initiate the emo-tional eating. Sometimes its obvious, and sometimes less so. It helps to keep a food journal, writing down any feelings that accompany certain eating habits. At first, this may be difficult to do, because, in the moment we may not be inclined or able to identify the pairing of emotions and habits. After a period, we should be able to decipher which emotions and situations have triggered demoralizing binges. Hopefully, taking these steps should help us map out a successful plan to gain control and strategize. Ms. Livingston encourages us to learn NEW habits that can ideally become ingrained as more effective measures of self-care. For example, we can commit to ALWAYS eating from a plate or bowl. The idea is, we are trying to develop a new habit of eating purposefully, and with care. Over time, this may be effec-tive in breaking ineffective habitsŽ of wolfing down cookies from a bag, or shoveling leftovers in the fridge. When you break the former habit it becomes uncomfortable and makes you pause. That pause gives you the oppor-tunity to say: Hey, what am I doing? Then you may have the presence of mind to say, Wait, stop. This is not what I want to do.Ž The next challenge is learning to substitute alternative activities in place of emotional eating. Its often helpful to consciously select activities that we can use to deliberately replace old habits. These new activities can be either plea-surable (ie. going to the beach or visit-ing close friends) or necessary tasks (ie. paying bills, or cleaning out a drawer.) If only we had the means to eliminate all the sources of stress and worry in our lives!!! Obviously, we can only eliminate those pressures that are in our power to address. But, we certainly can take some matters into our own hands, and commit to learning more effective strategies of self-care.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 A17 I cant smell any-thing, should I be concerned? One of the five senses we take for granted is our sense of smell. However, when we lose it, we suddenly become aware of the loss, as smell can account for up to 60% of taste, not to mention being unable to appreciate our spouse’s perfume, the wonderful odor of food and the list goes on and on. The most common cause of sudden loss of smell is head trauma. When the brain bounces around inside our skull it shears off the olfactory nerves resulting in the total loss of smell that will never return. Recently, I have seen patients who have used zicam nasal gel for cure of the common cold only to have lost their sense of smell. Unfortunately, again there is no cure when this happens. The best cure is prevention and not to use this preparation in the nose. When patients present with a gradual or intermittent loss of smell, they usually have a history of allergies and “sinus”. When this occurs they need to make an appointment for a full nose and sinus exam to make sure there is no serious problem with polyps, mucoceles or even a brain tumor that can cause serious consequences. When seen in the office we can perform a telescopic exam of the nasal lining looking for polyps and infection. Then a CAT scan is ordered of the sinuses that will show the presence or absence of any sinus disease. Balloon sinuplasty can be done in the office under local anesthesia that enables us to drain the sinuses, permanently open them so they drain and treat them with steroids to prevent polyp returns. If you or a friend have lost your sense of smell please make an appointment today to have your sinuses evaluated.

Ajmo D.D.S., P.A., Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Board Certi“ ed IV Sedation ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: How does Osteoporosis impac t my dental care? Answer: If you are currently an osteprorosis patient, it is critical that youmaintain immaculate care of your teeth. I f you are about to enter into treatment fo r osteoporosis, it is critical that you have athorough evaluation of your dental health an d have all the treatment done prior to receivingany osteoporosis IV or oral medication. Bone is constantly being resorbed an d then built up again. Osteoporosis medicationsinterfere with the resorption of bone, thus slowing down the bone-loss process. Bisphosphonates such as Fosomax o r Boniva have caused serious bone healing issues, so it is imperative that you informyour dentist if on any of these medications. If you have taken or are currently taking any medicine for osteoporosis and have dental surgery coming up, you may wan t to submit for a simple test to see if you cansafely be treated. The morning fasting serum CTX test measures bone turnover. Normal values are usually well over 300 pg/ml, and 150pg / ml is the benchmark. If you have a valueover 150 pg/ml, you are safe to undergo dental treatment. If, however, your score fallsbelow this value, you are at risk of having complications with treatment. You can opt for a six-month drug holiday, which means you suspend taking the medication for 6 months and retake the test. If your value improves to over 150 pg/ml — great! If not, have another drug holiday of sixmonths and retest again.

In addition, seven is con-sidered by many to be a lucky number. There are also seven ways you can live heart healthy and enjoy at least seven decades … plus seven.1. Don’t smoke.Smoking or using smokeless tobacco products are significant risk factors for developing heart disease. Many of the more than 4,800 chemicals in tobacco smoke can damage the heart and blood vessels, causing them to constrict and ultimately lead to a heart attack. Ciga-rette smoke contains nicotine that can narrow blood vessels and carbon mon-oxide that replaces oxygen in the blood. Both can increase blood pressure and put added strain on the heart.2. Eat healthy. Take extra helpings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains while passing on the deep-fried fast foods, bakery products and packaged snack items. Limit saturated fat „ which can raise cholesterol levels and increase the risk of heart disease „ that is found in beef, butter, cheese and milk. Instead, opt for foods such as fish that have polyunsatu-rated fat, which can decrease the risk of heart attack and lower blood pressure.3. Exercise regularly.You can reduce your chances of developing fatal heart disease by partic-ipating in moderately vigorous physical activity. Aim for at least 30 to 60 minutes of activity most days of the week. You dont have to go all out to achieve ben-efits, but you will reap greater rewards by increasing the intensity, duration and frequency of your workouts. 4. Don’t drink (too much).Too much alcohol can increase blood pressure and lead to heart failure or stroke. However, light to moderate drinking „ which is considered to be one drink per day for women and two or less for men „ can help prevent heart attacks. 5. Watch your weight.Being overweight or obese increases your risk for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and insulin resistance, all of which can raise the chances of developing cardiovascular disease. Talk with your doctor about a healthy weight loss plan that includes good nutrition and exercise, not fad diets or supple-ments. 6. Get regular health screenings.Adults should have their blood pressure checked at least every two years and cholesterol about every five years. High blood pressure and elevated cho-lesterol do not cause symptoms, but they can damage your heart and blood vessels.7. Reduce stress. Being under stress may cause you to overeat, start smoking, or smoke more than you would normally „ none of which is good for your heart. Research has shown that stress in young adults predicts blood pressure risk in middle-age. The Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center takes a multi-disciplinary approach to provide com-prehensive cardiac care. In fact, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is able to offer our cardiac patients the full continuum of care, from diagnostics to surgical intervention to cardiac reha-bilitation. You can reduce the risk of developing heart disease by more than 80 percent by living heart healthy. And its never too late to adopt sensible health habits. Whether you are 17 or 77, eating right, exercising, not smoking and maintain-ing a healthy weight will help protect your heart. For more information about living heart healthy, talk with your doc-tor or call 561-625-5070 for a free referral to a cardiologist. If you are interested in a free heart attack risk assessment, the next screen-ing is available April 9 at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Fasting is required.

Its addictive.I dont know anybody who hasnt wanted more of it at some point in time, except Jesus. And I never met him, so I cant be sure. The urge for more seems to have nothing to do with how much you have, either. Anymore than the urge for more heroin probably has anything to do with how much heroin you have. No matter how large your supply, youre going to want more. And the more you have, the greedier youll get, it seems. It can turn you into a devil who cares little for anyone or anything else except getting more of it. Thats why welfare as a social institution is ultimately so egregious: its nothing more than a way for addicts to mainline somebody elses money. Most people who are on welfare are not addicts, of course. They want off it, they want better lives, and theyre will-ing to work for better lives if they get a chance. But in the meantime, they need a quick injection. Everybody knows that. But some are addicts of the worst sort „ welfare abusers pure and simple. And perversely, the biggest abusers usually are rich. Take Gov. Rick Scott and his pals, the sugar-baron Fanjul brothers of Palm Beach: Alfonso, Jose, Alexander and Andres. The Fanjul Corp., which includes company names such as Florida Crystals and Domino, owns, leases and farms hundreds of thousands of acres in Florida and elsewhere, while running a resort and international airport in Costa Rica, among other enterprises. They seem to have more money than God. (Come to think of it, so does every-body else.) So youd think the governor and the Fanjuls could Just Say No,Ž like their spiritual forebear, Nancy Reagan, when it comes to taking handouts (a.k.a. wel-fare checks). But thats not what happens, as the following short history reveals. In the last couple of weeks, Gov. Scott has been accused of campaign finance violations that could cost him $82 mil-lion in fines if hes found guilty, and questioned about a $500,000 donation last year from the Fanjuls company, Florida Crystals, which first appeared on the books then vanished into the sugary thin air. That was an accounting error,Ž officials told reporters. But all that ruckus raised anew an old question, one about the governor and the Fanjuls: Do they own him? About 22 months ago, the governor made one of his 10 overseas trips to date „ twice as many as his predecessor and more than any other U.S. governor „ ostensibly to recruit business from abroad, according to a report last week from Bloomberg news service, which also appeared in the Miami Herald. On this occasion, Gov. Scott visited King Juan Carlos of Spain in the kings palace, and partied with him afterward. Money for the trip came in part from Enterprise Florida, which is funded mostly by taxpayers and in very small part (about 3 percent) by private busi-ness. The governor also used money provided by the Fanjuls, who paid for the post-meet Royal party. Along with other business people and lobbyists, Gov. Scott traveled to Spain with Jose PepeŽ Fanjul, president of Florida Crystals, and the companys chief lobbyist, Gaston Cantens. All of it, perhaps, was about a handout „ a welfare check of sorts. Some months after the trip, Gov. Scott awarded the Fanjuls a no-bid, 30-year lease extension on 8,700 acres of state land where they grow sugar cane. He also signed a bill helping the company limit payments to clean up pollution near its South Florida farms,Ž as the Bloomberg report put it. Those are gifts of a sort „ in effect, welfare checks „ from the American people, and the citizens of Florida. If the Fanjuls dont clean up the messes they make, we will have to. And as it turns out, we have a long history of providing welfare to the Fan-juls, among others such as the U.S. Sugar Corp. Heres how. In the 700,000-acre, state-owned Everglades Agricultural Area, or EAA, just south of Lake Okeechobee, the Fan-juls grow sugar cane on land mucked out and maintained by a vast system of water control structures, pumps and canals, along with state employees who maintain them. Americans pay for that. And all of that, comprising about 27 percent of the traditional Everglades, lies in the shadow of a dike built and now being repaired at huge cost by U.S. taxpayers. So significant money is spent to protect the Fanjuls and a few others, cour-tesy of taxpayers. Not only that, but the Fanjuls do business under the umbrella of government price supports, another form of welfare. While other farmers have to compete against the cheap-labor produce of the Americas as a whole, the Fanjuls sell sugar to us at about three times the rate it would fetch otherwise, experts say. Capitalists to the core, they nevertheless avoid free markets at all costs „ and thus, they rely on welfare. Ours. Perhaps oddest of all is this: Gov. Scott, a boot-strap conservative, heart-ily embraces this way of doing business. The Fanjuls are situated at the top of the list of the richest welfare addicts in the United States. Two of them own houses of more than 10,000 square feet in Palm Beach. And one of them, Jose PepeŽ Fanjul, spent about 300 nights in the last decade at Claridges Hotel in London, where his cost averaged about $7,000 per night, according to the BBC. He also entertained U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and his wife during an overnight party on his yacht in the Hamptons, after which the senator voted and lob-bied against stricter clean-water rules that could have cost the Fanjuls dearly. For most people who have to accept it, welfare is nothing but a po boy sand-wich. Not for the Fanjuls, not with Gov. Scott running the welfare checkbook. In this case, welfare checkŽ also means high on the hog. Q a i C f F r R roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 NEWS A25Go Red For Women is the American Heart Associations national move-ment to end heart disease in women. The movement advocates for more research and swifter action for womens heart health. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. The killer isnt as easy to see „ heart disease often is silent, hidden and misunderstood. The American Heart Association identifies women throughout Palm Beach County who stand apart in their service to uniquely impact the women around them by ending heart disease. These women were nominated by their peers and chosen to be the faces of the 2014 Go Red for Women movement. The Go Red for Women Luncheon is April 11 at Admirals Cove. For more information on tickets, call 697-6683.“Leading Ladies” take helm of American Heart Association campaignAndrea Brodlieb, Palm Beach Gardens and Manhattan Her story: Last year, my best friend from childhood, Michele Bryne, passed out and woke up in the hospital needing open-heart surgery. This shook me to the core and made me realize that we need to make women in America aware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. I joined our Circle of Red to become of part of the movement. I Go Red for Women for my best friend, Michele Bryne, and hope to help spread awareness of heart disease and its effect on women.Ž Mary Castronuovo, Palm Beach Gardens Her story: Mary and her husband have been longtime supporters of the American Heart Association and she truly believes that education means prevention of heart disease in women.

Her husband and mother have both been affected by heart disease. Jeanette thinks heart disease is so important because it can happen to any woman of any age. Jeanette believes that we should support and fund the efforts of the AHA to reach a cure and spread the word. I Go Red because heart disease can happen to anyone.Ž Susan Schupp, Palm Beach Gardens Her story: I am a survivor. My mes-sage to help save womens lives is: 1). Listen to your body and mind what it says. 2). Carry baby aspirin in every purse along with your lipstick. 3). Know heart attack symptoms in women. They are subtle and differ-ent from mens. 4). Go right to the ER when you think you could be having heart attack symptoms. Dont wait. 5). Get a good cardiologist and see her/him regularly and follow their advice. Heart attacks take too many lives needlessly. I am blessed to be a survivor. I Go Red to help others recognize the subtle symptoms and get the life-saving medical help they need immediately.Ž Lorraine Rogers-Bolton, Jupiter Her story: My connection to Go Red for Women is having a family his-tory of heart disease. Through serving as the Ambassador of our Circle of Red, we can save more lives by coming together and raising much-needed funds for the American Heart Association and spread the word about heart disease and its effect on women. Having a family history of heart disease, my wish is to do my best to create awareness of how to live heart healthy! I Go Red because I have so much love to share.Ž Trina Goosby, Lake Worth Her story: Being healthyŽ is not just about what we look like, but what we feelŽ like from the inside-out, along with the overall lon-gevity and wellness of the lives we live. I think that by educating and inspiring our Palm Beach communities and supporting the efforts of the American Heart Association we can save more lives/make a unique impact on the women in Palm Beach County.  I Go Red because for 20 years, I have made the commitment to provide education, as well as motivation, to encourage others to live healthier and longer lives.Ž Sara Chambers, Jupiter Her story: My connection to Go Red for Women is being a nurse manager for cardiac rehabilitation at Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical Center.

I really believe through education and awareness we can save more lives. I Go Red because women are so busy taking care of others they sometimes ignore signs and symptoms alerting them to their own health issues.Ž Felicia and Jasmin Lobo Their stories: Jasmin was born with a congenital heart defect called hypo-plastic left heart syndrome „half a heart.

Caba-ret artist Rob Russell also joins the bill. As you can see, its very eclectic, but what I think is cool about it is it has a feel of a festival,Ž Ms. Stanley said. Theyre just going to be seeing some-thing that really represents the celebra-tion of the lives of our clients.Ž The Lords Places Caf Joshua Catering will provide food for sale, chil-drens activities will entertain the little ones, and a silent auction will help raise money for the cause. Later in the evening, a powerful documentary about The Lords Place will play to the 500-plus in attendance, followed by moving testimonials and a candlelight ceremony. Thats probably my favorite part of the event,Ž Ms. Stanley said. I just love that piece. Imagine having 500 people with a lit candle holding it to a song. Im always on the stage, and I look down on this, and its just really amazing.Ž A movie will run from 9 to 11 p.m., and then the lights will go out. The city of West Palm Beach will provide security. SleepOut is about family,Ž Ms. Stanley said. This event is about family coming together for a social cause that will allow them to support something as important as caring for the homeless in our community.Ž The goal of The Lords Place … to break the cycle of homelessness and end it in the county … will gain new ground this year with services aimed at chil-dren. Through the $2 million Tomorrow Fund, the agency will focus on the needs of its youngest clients. 2014 is really a year for us to look at the homeless children,Ž Ms. Stan-ley said. Were calling it the year of the child. We need to focus on ending generational homelessness. We need to make sure that that child does not enter the world as an adult.Ž Thirty-eight homeless families live at The Lords Places West Palm Beach campus. The campus in Boynton Beach houses 51 homeless men, and another campus in Lake Worth houses 10 home-less women. The agency also rents eight apartments for the chronic homeless. There are so many faces of homelessness,Ž Ms. Stanley said. One of the reasons I believe The Lords Place has been so successful is we have diversified our services to serve all the faces. We dont discriminate. You walk through our doors, and we take that journey with you. The Lords Place believes that housing is a right,Ž she contintued. Its not a privilege.Ž Local attorney Jack Scarola, who, in 1973, helped start The Lords Place by sleeping on the steps of St. Ann Catholic Church, agreed. No man, no woman and especially no child needing food and shelter in our community should be deprived of those most basic needs,Ž Mr. Scarola said. The biggest myth about home-lessness, and the greatest obstacle to effectively addressing the problem, is the stereotyping of the victims as street-corner panhandlers with drug and alco-hol problems.Ž Mr. Scarolas children and grandchildren will join him at SleepOut, and they will serve as the seventh annual events honorary family. There would be a fourth generation in attendance, but my 89-year-old mother is no longer up to sleeping on the ground, so she will be mailing in her support, as she does every month,Ž he said. Mr. Scarola and his wife Anita want their family to appreciate the blessing of having a home. They also want partici-pants at SleepOut to realize homeless-ness often occurs involuntarily. The vast majority of the homeless in our community are those who were living one missed paycheck away from falling into homelessness and are driven over the edge by some unforeseen eco-nomic tragedy,Ž he said.

Before the South Florida economy can be powered by home construction and dozens of other structures, from cell-phone towers to churches, each project requires an official permit. Getting one is a review process that some builders probably look forward to about as much as a colonoscopy. Some employ a permit runner or man-agement company, subcontractors that specialize in shepherding permit appli-cations through local bureaucracies. With building permit numbers growing across the region, theyre busier than theyve been in years „ albeit nowhere near the hectic boom years that peaked around 2005 and 2006. CrazyŽ was the most common word that permit profes-sionals used to describe that period of hyper-construction leading up to The Great Recession. In the first three months of last year, Palm Beach County issued 277 single-family home permits compared to 89 during the same period in 2009. Part of the challenge with the downturn of the industry is a lot of cities let staff go, so now that cities are getting busier theres a much larger backlog (of permits),Ž said Sandy Maksym, owner of Permit Expediters of Florida. The south Florida company manages mostly larger or complex projects on the east coast, in Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Martin counties. Nowhere in South Floridas permit archives is the pendulum swing between boom and recession more pronounced than in Lee County. The west coast community was often cited as a ground zeroŽ for the housing meltdown. In 2005, unincorporated Lee issued 9,747 single-family home permits. In 2009, it issued 331. Since then the number has grown each year to 860 single-family permits in 2013. Im back to having a full load during the day time, (and working) a little bit later hours,Ž said Hank Gasperson of Nolens Permitting Services, a family-owned Southwest Florida company. In February, unincorporated Charlotte County issued 30 single-family home permits. During that month in 2010, 11 were issued. Commercial building is also trending up. In unincorporated Collier County, for instance, 28 commercial building per-mits were issued in the first five months of this fiscal year, October through Feb-ruary. Thats more than double the same time last year.More than runnersFor projects as small as a pool cage and tall as a downtown high rise, permit runners shield their clients from seem-ingly endless reams of paperwork, extra trips and traffic jams, take-a-number waiting rooms and obscure building codes. To call them runnersŽ is often a misnomer, depending on the size and complexity of the permit application theyre paid to handle. We do everything from a fence permit to a brand new commercial build-ing,Ž said Jennie Gasperson, owner of Nolens Permitting. The first step for a runner often requires picking up the paperwork from a contractor or receiving it via FedEx delivery, making sure everything is complete and in order, and finally tak-ing it to a government building to get it across the counter.Ž A high-rise permit application, for instance, comes with four roles of paper plans, each weighing 30 to 50 pounds, Hank Gasperson estimates. A home application would have three or four much lighter sets. Government entities are increasingly offering electronic fil-ing as well. The review process could take weeks and require any number of corrections, especially for commercial applica-tions. Runners and managers wait for critiques from government reviewers and then make any necessary fixes, a sometimes-painstaking process of sift-ing through big applications that could be hundreds of pages long and working with contractors who are eager to move forward quickly. Im paid to handle frustration,Ž said Ms. Maksym of Permit Expediters.BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF APRIL 3-9, 2014 A35 Permit running EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYJennie Gasperson organizes sets of plans that must be submitted for a single-family housing permit at the Collier County Zoning Services building.

For exam-ple, taxpayers would have employed tax-minimizing strategies for 2013 during 2013. However, there are still a few strategies that can be employed this year that could minimize your 2013 taxes. One such strategy is a Health Savings Account or HSA.Ž Created by the government in 2003, these accounts allow individuals who are covered by high deductible health insurance plansŽ to save money for medical expenses by allocating pretax dollars into a medical savings account. Further, these contributions can be established in the year following the year in which contributions are being assigned. For example, before April 15, you can establish a HSA for 2013 that allows you to make contributions in 2014 related to 2013. These contribu-tions are given tax preferredŽ treat-ment for 2013 tax filing. The HSA plan is fairly simple, but details can be found at the IRS website. The words tax preferredŽ suggests importance beyond just tax deferral: ƒ money in an HSA can be withdrawn tax-free at any time, as long as it is used for qualified medical expenses. This is significant, because it means that the money contributed to an HSA is never taxed „ not when it was contributed (because of the deduction) and not when it is withdrawn. As the website www.taxberries.com states, There is no other arrangement in the tax code that is treated so favorably.Ž So who can use a HSA? The plan is not available to everyone; it is open to adults covered by a high deduct-ible health insurance planŽ and who have no other first dollar coverage.Ž If you are paying for your own insur-ance and not covered by a government employee or corporate employee plan, then you might qualify. If you have had a high-deductible planŽ for only part of the year, then the HSA contribution amount is prorated. (But it needs to have been in place by Dec. 1.) If youre confused about whether your plan is a high-deductible plan,Ž you can call your insurer and just ask if your plan meets government definitions. Alternately, you can use the following government provided definition: It is a health insurance plan with an annual deductible that is not less than $1,250 for self-only cover-age or $2,500 for family coverage, and the annual out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles, co-payments, and other amounts, but not premiums) do not exceed $6,250 for self-only coverage or $12,500 for family coverage. According to the HSA for America website, people choose high deductible insurance plans because, typically, their premiums cost less than traditional low-deductible health insurance cover-age; ƒ (as) the insurance company does not have to process and pay claims for routine, low-dollar medical care, until the deductible of the plan has been met.Ž Specifically, for 2013, the contribution limit for an individual is $3,250 and for a family it is $6,450; for 2014, the amounts for an individual are $3,300 and $6,550 for a family. Individuals age 55 and over may deposit into their account (and take a tax deduction on) an additional catch-up contribution of $1,000. There are good reasons for using HSAs. Here are some from the (For DummiesŽ website): € You will pay for health-care expenditures with tax-free money. Depend-ing on your tax rate, you might be saving 20-30 percent on your medical expenses because you are using pretax dollars. € An HSA account is tax-free. You will not need a 1099-INT. The interest you earn is also tax-free. € You own/decide/manage the HSA. No one else controls this money but you and unused yearly funds can be rolled to the next year. € Benefits of the HSA stay with you even with insurance changes. If you move away from a HSA, you can still keep what amounts are already in your plan. € HSA can be part of your retirement plans.Ž After the age of 65, you can withdraw funds from your HSA account penalty-free for any purpose. You will pay income tax on the with-drawal if it is not used to pay for health care, but that tax rate is likely to be lower in your retirement years when your income is lower. And, of course, you can continue to withdraw the money from your HSA account tax-free to pay for medically necessary expenses. ƒbut you dont have to use the money for health-care expenses after you reach retirement age. You can use it to fund that dream vacation that you never had time for while you were working. Check with your insurer, read the government website and all the condi-tions that apply to you, talk to your accountant, read the various websites of companies that offer HSA plans and get going on this project before April 15.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Bohemian pottery features elaborate designs with long curving lines BY KIM AND TERRY KOVEL Want a conversation piece for your living room? Look for a piece of Ampho-ra pottery from Bohemia. Several pot-teries in Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia, around the turn of the 20th-century made large vases in the Art Nouveau style. Statue-like women in flowing dresses climbed the side of a tall vase. Or a mysterious, exotic vine with large blossoms crept up to the top. Designs also included ani-mals, mermaids or birds, all with curved lines and pastel colors. Some vases look more like strange sculptures. Early piec-es were made by Eduard Stellmacher and are marked with variations of the factory name, Reisner, Stellmacher & Kessel, or with RStK, Amphora, Royal Amphora or an eagle. They also may be marked AustriaŽ if they were made before 1918, then CzechoslovakiaŽ until 1945, when the factory closed. The most popular Amphora vases are large, at least 15 inches high and strik-ingly unusual. They are not at all like modern vases and many people do not like them, but todays decorators like a unique piece to add interest to a room. Prices at shops can go from $100 for a small piece to $6,000 for a large one, but sometimes you can find a bargain at an estate sale where only the brave buy large, bold examples of design. Q: I have a few top-quality handbags and wonder what theyre worth. One is a Chanel thats covered in little suede patches. Others are by Bottega Veneta, Pierre Cardin and Fendi. A: The prices of high-quality vintage handbags can be quite high „ into the thousands. Many national auction houses include handbags in their vin-tage couture sales. If your bags are in excellent condition, dont sell them on your own until you consult a reputable auction house. You may get a lot more for them if they are sold by an auction house that advertises widely, sells on land and online, and attracts a lot of interested bidders. Q: My father gave me his favorite board game from his childhood. It is called The Uncle Wiggily Game.Ž I have the board, the pieces and the box. The board shows a map with numbered spaces, houses, trees, a rabbit (probably Uncle Wiggily) and other animals. Who made it? When? What is it worth? A: Uncle Wiggily was a rabbit char-acter created in 1910 for a daily series of bedtime stories. The game was introduced by Milton Bradley in 1916. In 1967 rights to the game went to Parker Brothers, which marketed it until about 1971. All of the published versions of the game were similar. Elderly Uncle Wiggily, who wore a top hat, was search-ing for medicine for his rheumatism. The board for the 1967 game pictures a 2 & 3 Cent Store.Ž Others have a 5 & 10 Cent store.Ž The game board also changed in 1923, 1949, 1955 and 1961. The r abbits were made of a composition material in early sets. From 1947 to 1953, they were made of metal. In 1988, Milton Bradley and Parker Brothers made different versions of the game. The Bradley version was a simpler, shorter game with 100 spaces instead of the original 151 spaces. There is a new game today, by Winning Moves, that has a vintage look. Most Uncle Wiggily games sell for under $30. Q: My large, two-part, floor-standing spool cabinet has the words The Leon-ard Silk Co.Ž and Warehouse PointŽ on the side panels. It has two rows of seven glass-front drawers above two stacks of four drawers. And it still has some of the removable pegs that held spools of thread. What is its age and value? A: Leonard Silk Co. was a manufacturer of thread based in Warehouse Point, Conn. It started out as J.N. Leonard & Co. in the 1860s and became the John N. Leonard Silk Co. in 1891. In 1869 John Leonard invented a revolving display cabinet with wire rods to hold spools. He made spool labels with ornamentally perforatedŽ holes so they could fit over the rods and leave the printed labels intact. Leonard sold his interest in the company in about 1909 and its name was changed to Ware-house Point Silk Co. Spool cabinets were used by salesmen and dry goods stores to display spools of thread. Your spool cabinet was made between 1891 and 1909. Because your spool cabinet is so large, its worth $1,000 to $2,000. Tip: In addition to more visible mold, there is a critter called dry rot,Ž which can get into your wooden items after a flood. Its a silent killer. If the rot isnt killed, it will ruin your wooden items from the inside out throughout a period of 10 to 15 years. It gets into wooden furniture, floor supports and walls, and only eats wood. Take a tank sprayer with a borate solution and spray it into wall cavities and under floors. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Write to Kovels, (Florida Weekly), King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019. This 15-inch-high Amphora vase features a pheasant perched on a base. The vase is made to resemble a tree branch. It was offered last year at a Rago Arts auction in Vineland, N.J., where its presale estimate was $1,000 to $1,500.

During that time it was pool permits most of all, as well as improvements to medical buildings, fixes after a hurricane, and church construction, that kept her busi-ness afloat, Ms. Gasperson recalled. I was really kind of surprised even in the downturn how busy pool contrac-tors remained,Ž she said. Now, the growth in single-family home construction and commercial projects is driving her business. Their clients range from owner-builders,Ž who may only need one such permit in their life, to national builders that create communities. Ms. Maksym of Permit Expediters survived the recession by working out-side the industry until 2010 when clients started to trickle back in again.Ž Now, builders are increasingly calling to check her rates. Even if they dont end up becoming a client, its a sign that theyre busy, Ms. Maksym said. At some point theres a transition. Its like, Were way too busy, we have to hire somebody,Ž be it a service like hers or an in-house runner. More recently, an increase in electronic permit applications and more permit runners in a growing market have diluted business for runners. But at the same time, they said, factors such as lower impact fees in some areas have spurred construction. Permit running companies charge their customers in a variety of ways, such as per trip or hour. Nolen charges a flat rate that includes the entire pro-cess from beginning to certificate of occupancy or completion. Permit run-ning costs vary widely among individual projects. For instance, permit manage-ment for a single-family home permit in Palm Beach County could cost between $800 and $1,800 depending on the level of services needed, be it simply running or technical, start-to-finish attention. For some builders, we just pick up and run and were just feet on the ground for them,Ž said Ms. Maksym. Some require more than just feet on the ground.Ž Q PERMITSFrom page 35 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYJennie Gasperson of Nolen’s Permitting Service.

Chris Ÿ ne Grieco 561.371.1830 Tres Belle Estates — Just Reduced Consumer confidence among Floridians rises in March to post-recession high THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAConsumer confidence among Floridians rose three points in March to 81, tying a post-recession high last reached in May and June of last year, according to a new University of Florida survey. Although an index number of 81 is modest when looking at the entire his-tory of the index, Its as high as we have achieved since before the reces-sion began in December 2007,Ž says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Eco-nomic and Business Research, which conducts the survey. The increase, he adds, is consistent with the centers expectations that consumer sentiment among Floridians would remain near post-recession highs, given relatively good economic news and that Congress provides budget certainty with deals to fund federal budgets through this year. Consumers overall opinion that their personal resources are better now than a year ago rose 10 points to 73, the high-est level since August 2007, shortly after the Great Recession began. Expecta-tions of being better off financially a year from now also increased, rising six points to 82. Confidence in the nations economy for the coming year increased five points to 84, while trust in its performance over the next five years remained unchanged at 79. Only one of the five survey components declined. Respondents verdict on whether now is a good time to buy major household items fell four points to 86. There are other signs of an improv-ing Florida economy. Floridas 6.1 percent unemployment rate in January dropped two-tenths a per-cent from Decem-ber, which was four-tenths a per-cent lower than the national 6.4 percent rate. Meanwhile, both Floridas labor force and the num-ber of employed grew during the same period. Floridas tourism industry has ben-efited from a harsh winter in the north and is making some gains in shifting to higher technology jobs, including bio-technology,Ž Mr. McCarty says. The states retail sales outperformed the national average in January, in part because severe winter weather else-where limited shopping, he says. In addition, Floridas inflation rate is lower than elsewhere in the country where cold weather triggered fuel price increases. Mr. McCarty predicts the biggest threat to the economy and consumer confidence in the near future will come from Russia, not Washington. For many U.S. consumers, especially those who remember the Cold War, the image of Russian tanks moving through Europe is all too familiar,Ž he says. Conducted March 14-25, the UF study reflects the responses of 416 individu-als representing a demographic cross-section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a two; the highest is 150.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSWhat does the fox say?I recently visited a museum exhibit that featured The Little Prince,Ž Antoine de Saint-Exuprys melan-choly and whimsical childrens tale. The exhibition documented Mr. Saint-Exuprys process, from the earliest drawings to the edits on his hand-written manuscripts. My favorite panels featured the little prince meeting the fox in the desert. Come play with me,Ž the prince says. I cant play with you,Ž the fox says. Im not tame.Ž Ah! Excuse me,Ž says the prince. But after a moment of reflection he adds, What does tame mean?Ž To form ties,Ž says the fox.To form ties?ŽOf course. To me, youre just a little boy like any other little boy. I dont need you. And you dont need me either. For you, Im just a fox like any other fox. But if you tame me, well need each other. You will be special to me. And I will be special to you.Ž In the original French text, Mr. Saint-Exupry used the verb app-rivoiser,Ž which means to tameŽ but which also has the greater signifi-cance of creating bonds, of setting up a system of mutual obligation. You become responsible forever for what you have tamed,Ž the fox says. I stood in the gallery surrounded by Mr. Saint-Exuprys colorful illustra-tions and carefully printed prose and remembered the first time I had read The Little Prince.Ž It was at the end of my senior year in col-lege, and a boy I desperately wanted to love had given me a copy. He was blessed with the sort of attributes that impressed the girl I was then: good hair, well-defined pecs, a face that could have been on TV. I worried every second we were together that he would realize I was the ugly duckling I considered myself to be. Sometimes he talked about getting married and having babies and mov-ing back to his small town in Louisi-ana, and my wild heart would send up a fearful flare. For the longest time I thought what I dreaded was what he offered: a settled life, a domestic routine, a series of mutual obligations. I feared he would tame me „ not in the French sense, which I find lovely and hope-ful „ but in the thoroughly English sense, the way you might tame a horse: You have to break her first. I imagined that being in a relationship meant giving up my freedom, and perhaps this is why I spend my days alone at museums instead of looking for a partner like any normal person. But revisiting The Little PrinceŽ reminded me of something important I had forgotten long ago. My problem was not with the settled life that that sweet-faced Southern boy proposed. It wasnt with getting married or having babies or even living in some tiny town. It was with him. For all his good looks, he just wasnt what I wanted. At the end of the little princes meeting with the fox, the fox offers to tell him a secret before they part. Its only with the heart one can see rightly,Ž the fox says. What is essential is invisible to the eye.Ž I couldnt agree more.

But other times that laughter is as much nervously whistling in the dark about deeply discomfiting issues. Plenty of laughter greets every witticism and absurdity in Palm Beach Dra-maworks production of Dividing The Estate,Ž Horton Footes acidic depic-tion of greed, jealousy and family. But through the laughter, you either silently thank God you dont know these people or you curse fate that they are way too familiar. For while the greedhead Gordon family is a study in avarice and entitlement in extremis, all the maneuverings and manipulations may cut too close to home and, at the very least, force you to examine your own conduct. Dramaworks Producing Artistic Director William Hayes, who has heard tales of only slightly less grasping kin, has led an expert 13-member cast in a biting if a bit languorous examination of humanitys darker side. The late Mr. Foote, an American creative treasure best known for The Trip to BountifulŽ and Tender Mercies,Ž is virtually never performed in South Flor-idas professional theaters. Like other playwrights chosen for Dramaworks mission of theater that makes you think, Footes dramaturgical metabolism is noticeably slower, looser and more expansive that most of his contempo-raries. He loves his characters to tell stories and in this play, he indulges him-self with some quite debatably editable stretches in which folks sit around and trade local gossip for long periods that slow the narrative drive of the show. But Foote creates a framework in which the Gordons inexorably drag themselves into a moral abyss, lead-ing to a penultimate scene that closely resembles the finale and catchphrase of Sartres No ExitŽ: Hell is other people. The play is set in Footes fictional rural Texas town of Harrison in 1987, just after Black Monday wiped out the stock market and exacerbating the worst recession at that time since the Great Depression. Storefronts are boarded up; the only restaurants left are McDonalds, Sonic and What-A-Burger; the new plastic factory is owned by a Taiwanese concern. The Gordons, still reigning over Harrison from their mansion, are strug-gling like everyone else „ now they are down to only three servants. With the cost of raising cotton making farm-ing unprofitable, they are land rich and cash poor. The one seemingly prom-ising source of funds is the estateŽ founded under murky beginnings by a great-great-grandfather and having sustained five generations of Gordons. But with matriarch Stella in her 80s and her three children in challenging economic straits, the extended families are hungrily circling the cash cow with their cutlery drawn. Some are pressing Stella to liquidate the estate, something she vows never to do. Long jettisoned by that generation are the verities of land cited in Gone With the WindŽ: Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett OHara, that Tara, that land doesnt mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin for, worth fightin for, worth dyin for, because its the only thing that lasts.Ž It becomes increasingly clear that some of the relatives are more desper-ate than others. But even the most laid-back members have an absolute uncon-scious expectation of entitlement that decades of having money has inculcated in them. These are inordinately proud people who have been trying to avert their eyes as they acclimate themselves to such indignities as living on allow-ances from the estate and borrowing huge six-figure sums. When Stella continues to balk at selling the farms and manse, resentments and jealousies boil over in torrents of snide sniping that wash away the veneer of Southern gentility and perfunctory familial fealty. And then its gets really ugly. All the while, Foote has suffused the proceedings with generous helpings of humor „ this is a Moliere-like comedy, after all. People slice each other up with quips or simply, like in a realityŽ TV show, blithely act in self-centered ways that comically sweep away the niceties of human interaction. This is a huge cast for Dramaworks and every last person is in fine form. But Kim Cozort gets the best role as the most nakedly rapacious daughter who never stops scheming to get her hands on the money and doesnt care enough to hide it. Stella is a crusty Mother Burnside character from Auntie MameŽ in the hands of Mary Stout, who feigns for-getfulness but knows she is controlling everyones lives in 20th century slavery by her ever-changing promises of what will be in the will. Besides Cozorts Mary Jo, Stellas other children include the alcoholic wastrel Lewis (Rob Donohoe). The other daughter, Lucille (the wonder-ful Elizabeth Dimon) only seems less interested because the current set-up provides a home for her and her son „nicknamed Son „ (Gregg Weiner) who tries to keep the family finances afloat. Only slightly less worried than Mary Jo is her weary husband, the down and out real estate salesman Bob, played by Cozorts husband, Kenneth Kay. But the most operatically upset by the limi-tations of their plights are Mary Jos two spoiled rotten daughters (Gretchen Porro and Leah Sessa). Son is a widower who is courting a sweet schoolteacher (Margery Lowe), a positive-thinking naif trying to preserve her optimism while navigating this shark tank. Natalia Coego makes a brief but memorable appearance in the final scene as Lewis girlfriend. Essential to the households operation are the remaining servants played by Avery Sommers, Deltoiya Monique and in a bravura turn, John Archie as the 92-year-old retainer so addled he doesnt realize he has been forcibly retired. Archie has been playing a varia-tion of this voluble, lovable coot role for years now, from Radio GolfŽ to Driv-ing Miss Daisy.Ž But Archie is superb and while he chews the scenery with gusto, he may be the most vibrant and entertaining character on the stage. Q „ Dividing The EstateŽ runs through April 27 at Palm Beach Dramaworks, the Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

The festival closes with Cas & Dylan,Ž directed by Jason Priestley, who is expected to appear at the screening. A highlight of this years festival: a screening of Rick McKays Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age,Ž with the story of Broadway in the 60s and 70s from 1959-81, in Part II of Mr. McKays Broad-way Trilogy. We did the world premiere of Broadway: The Golden Age over 10 years ago, then to have Rick coming back with his next film is just so thrilling. He was invited to every major festival you can imagine and he came here,Ž Ms. Emer-man said. This years festival will honor Mr. McKay with its Visionary Award. The festival also will honor Tony Award-winning actor Robert Morse, who is one of the legends featured in Mr. McKays film. But there are some changes with this years festival. Weve done a few different things. Were working with the Toronto Inter-national Film Festival. Theyve sched-uled a sidebar of Canadian films that were in Toronto last year,Ž Ms. Emer-man said. There also will be The Jewish Experience, a new Jewish/Israeli-centric pro-gram presenting cutting-edge films of the genre, including four world pre-mieres, three U.S. premieres, 15 Florida premieres and five Palm Beach pre-mieres. Three of the features are best film nominees for OPHIR (Israels equivalent to the Academy Awards). And get set to laugh: The Music and Merriment Film Showcase, set for 8 p.m.-10 p.m. April 6 at South Shores Tavern in Lake Worth promises an eve-ning of videos, docs and shorts that will bring music and merriment to eyes and ears. There also will be opportunities for career development, with the seminars Trials and Tribulations of Healthcare and Benefits for the Independent Film-maker and Making Movies „ How Do They Do It?, set for 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. April 5 at the Hyatt Place Delray. The festival follows that with a look at some South Florida films, Voices of Local Films & Student Showcase of Films, set to screen at 7 p.m. April 6 at Downtown at the Gardens Cobb The-atre. It pleases Ms. Emerman to bring those locally produced films to the fore. Were getting a little bit more Florida in general, but its very international,Ž she said. The level of films has risen over the years that she has been involved with the festival, too. The quality of the international films were receiving is very, very good and you look at all the countries that are represented, and thats grown. Our reach around the world has grown.Ž She points to returning directors, like Ian Vernon, who was last at the festival with Best Little Whorehouse in Roch-dale.Ž Hes back again with The War I Knew,Ž she said. Weve got someone coming from Turkey. Weve got 42 countries movies that were playing, but 20 are actually attending on their own dime,Ž she said. Seeing these returning filmmakers is so exciting because they had such a good time that they come back.Ž The galas, which honored a variety of stars, are a thing of the past. Instead, look for Toast of the Town „ A Tribute to Classic Hollywood, set for 9 p.m. April 5 at Eau Palm Beach in Manalapan. It is billed as the festivals main fundraiser. I loved the gala, but times have changed. It did help with the raising of funds for the festival, but the focus was on the gala and not on films and film-makers,Ž Ms. Emerman said, adding that she runs the festival with the help of volunteers and credit cards. If she is lucky, the 6,000 or so individuals who attend the festival will cover her bills. After all, movies are all about the collective gathering of people as an audi-ence. It almost is a spiritual experience for some. Not everybody is going to read the newspaper or have in-depth conversa-tions or watch the news but through films we can come together as one,Ž Ms. Emerman said. When will people ever meet someone from Turkey or Croatia? Theyre coming in from Hong Kong and Japan. I know a lot of people stay in touch with people they meet at the festival.Ž Film is the great equalizer.Its not expensive to go see a movie. Its $10 and change, so its something everyone in our community should experience and can experience.Ž Q >>What: The Palm Beach International Film Festival>>When: April 3-10 >>Where: Screenings will be held at Muvico Parisian 20 and IMAX at CityPlace in West Palm Beach, Cobb Downtown at the Gardens, Lake Worth Playhouse Stonzek Theatre in Lake Worth and Cinemark Palace 20 in Boca Raton. >>Cost: Platinum passes are available for $450, which include priority admission for 1 for the Opening Night Film and Party, all regular festi-val screenings, closing night, the Toast of the Town — A Tribute to Classic Hollywood party at the Eau Palm Beach and the Special Presentation Spotlight Screening of Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age; Premiere passes are available for $325, which provide admission to the opening and closing night lm and party, as well as all regular festival screenings and the Special Presentation Spotlight Screening of “Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age”; Gold passes are available for $225, which provide admission to all lms and seminars.

Todays deal provided the French with a substantial pickup in the match. When Frances Alain Levy and Herve Mouiel held the North-South cards, the bidding went as shown, and West led a heart. No doubt many declarers would have taken the first heart and played the A-K of diamonds without giving the matter much thought. But when the diamond queen failed to fall and the club ace later proved to be offside, they would have gone down, unable to reach the A-K of spades in the closed hand. However, this was the final of the world championship, and Mouiel, as would be expected, spotted the virtu-ally sure way to make nine tricks. After taking the first heart in dummy, he led the diamond deuce to his ten. This lost to Wests queen, but the diamond nine was established as an entry to the closed hand, and there was no way the defend-ers could stop South from scoring five diamonds, two hearts and two spades for a total of nine tricks. At the other table, the U.S. NorthSouth pair of Michael Rosenberg and Seymon Deutsch reached five dia-monds. Rosenberg, North, won the opening heart lead and played the A-K of trumps. He then cashed his other high heart and ruffed a heart in dummy. Next came the A-K of spades, declarer discarding two clubs, followed by a spade ruff. Rosenberg then exited with a diamond to Wests queen. Had West started with precisely a 3-33-4 pattern, he would have been forced to return a club at this point, allowing dummys king to score the game-going trick. As it was, though, West was able to exit with his last spade. Rosenberg had no choice but to ruff and lead a club to the king, and when West produced the ace, the contract was down one, giving the French a 12-IMP gain on the deal. Q

Kensington Books. 304 pages. Trade paperback $15.00.This first entry in a new historical mystery series takes us to the world of the Vanderbilts and other late 19th centu-ry families of wealth who enjoyed as one of their special enclaves the delights of Newport, R.I. Alyssa Maxwells recur-rent and detailed tracing of the street map as her protagonist moves back and forth across the town is one ingredient that lends authority to this highly imaginative novel. Her story borrows and reimagines histori-cal characters while providing us many oth-ers who only live in these pages. The central character is young Emmaline Cross, a woman with Vanderbilt blood in her veins but only limited financial resources. She carefully manages a mod-est inheritance while working as a society reporter. Well bred but straining against the harness of upper-crust propriety, Emma is trying to find her equilibrium as an inde-pendent woman to be defined not only by her family relationships. Sure, its nice to be the niece of Cornelius Vanderbilt II, but that is not how she wants to be measured. When there is a murder at The Breakers, the splendid residence of the Vanderbilts, Emma is about the closest of anyone to being a witness. When her half-brother Brady is arrested, jailed and treated like the sole suspect, Emmas sense of justice and her journalist instinct drive her to find the truth. Alvin Goddard, Vanderbilts financial secretary and advisor, was found blud-geoned and pushed off a second floor bal-cony at The Breakers to his death. Emma, outside the mansion at the time, saw the body fall but not much else. The police find Brady in a very compromising position and take him into custody. Because he has often been in trouble in the past, only his dearest relatives have any confidence in his innocence in this case. Indeed, Brady is a drinker, and he hardly knows what hap-pened. His story is that he had stolen some papers connected to a railroad deal, put up to it by someone else. Taking advantage of the turmoil of a grand social event, he attempted to return the papers to their secure place in Vanderbilts office. The suspicion is that Goddard caught him in the act, perhaps threatening him, and Brady felt forced to murder him. To Emma, such violence does not accord with her sense of Bradys character. She plunges forward to find out who else might have had reason to murder Goddard. One candidate is Ted Mason, long-time loyal butler to the Vanderbilts, who had been dismissed after Goddard accused him of stealing some art objects. His reputation in tatters, Mason could have sought the ultimate revenge. Other candidates include Cornelius III (cousin Neily) and people involved in the manipulation of stock prices and other doings related to the impending railroad deal. Among these is the strikingly hand-some Jack Parsons, a good friend of Emmas parents. Other Vanderbilts, and even Emmas maid Katie, come under scrutiny as Emma asks endless questions and takes chance after chance in her effort to expose the true murderer and exonerate Brady. Her sometimes accomplice in this pursuit is an investigative reporter who calls himself Derrick Anderson. This man is quite a charmer and clearly has designs on Emma, but his sincerity is questionable. Also more than cordial is family friend Jesse, one of the policemen on the case, who must balance his professionalism against his affection for Emma. Emmas headstrong actions provide opportunities for the author to fully elabo-rate the world in which the young sleuth moves: its architecture, technology and values. We see the grandeur of Newport residences and their furnishings. We hear the rustle of Victorian fabrics and the sounds of Emmas horse-drawn carriage. We eavesdrop on meal preparations and social gossip. We understand the power of the pecking order in this community of bluebloods, scoundrels and servants. All along, Ms. Maxwell effectively paces the events and peels away false assump-tions so that an increasing sense of danger and the orchestration of shocking surprises keeps readers turning the pages. A first-time novelist who lives in Coral Gardens, Ms. Maxwell has the second title in her Gilded Newport Mystery series, Murder at Marblehouse,Ž slated for Octo-ber publication. Mark your calendar for that release and enjoy this fresh new voice. Q phil JASONpkjason@comcast.net MAXWELL

But you might still need to ease some problems with someone in your personal life. One way could be to try to be less rigid in your views. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be too close to that perplexing per-sonal situation to even attempt to make a rational decision about it right now. Step-ping back could help you gain a wider perspective. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Being asked to choose between the positions of two friends is an unfair imposition on you. Its best to reject the demandsŽ and insist they try harder to work things out on their own. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change of mind about a workplace decision might be called for once you hear more argu-ments, pro and con. A personal event sud-denly takes an unexpected (but pleasant!) turn. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Romance once again looms large for single Leos and Leonas, with Cupid favoring Taurus and Libra to inspire those warm and fuzzy Leo-nine feelings. Expect another workplace change. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A surprise gift -and, happily, with no strings attached -could come just when you need it to avoid a delay in getting your project done. Expect education to dominate the week. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Someone close to you might ask for your support as she or he faces a demanding personal challenge. Offer it, by all means. But be careful you dont neglect your own needs at this time. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected development could put your relationship with a partner or spouse to an emotionally demanding test. But your determination to get to the truth should save the day. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent agreement appears to be coming apart over the surfacing of unexpected complications. You might need to have expert advice on how to resolve the situation. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your keen business sense helps you get to the truth about a suspicious business deal. Expect to have many colleagues rally to support your efforts in this important matter. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Someone who once moved in and out of your life through the years might now want to come back in on a more permanent basis. Give yourself a lot of time to weigh your decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Showing frustration over a delayed work-place decision might get someones atten-tion, but not necessarily make him or her move any sooner. Best advice would be to be patient and wait it out. BORN THIS WEEK: You are drawn to excitement and enjoy fast-tempo music, with the more brass, the better.

Evita is a role that she always admired.I love the story and I think people, at least I think with our production, people leave very affected by it and its very authentic and you get to see inside the life of this woman who lived this fascinating very full life in a very short time,Ž she said of the show. Some critics have called the show Mr. Lloyd Webbers best. Its also a very quick show. Youre on the edge of your seat the whole time,Ž Ms. Bowman said. Despite the controversy surrounding the first lady „ Eva Peron and her hus-band, Juan, were fascists who lived lav-ishly „ Ms. Bowman said she finds the character to be very human. I love her, but I think as an actor I always fall in love with my characters that Im playing. I think that its split down the middle just like it is in real life,Ž she said of Peron. I think half of the audience is going to love her and the other half is doing to dislike her, or not approve of her choices. Thats how it was in real life.Ž There is some common ground.My goal is to get the love of the people,Ž Ms. Bowman said, adding, I try to relate to her. I can relate to her ambition. I can relate to her drive. I can relate to her passion. I try to mesh Evita and Caroline together. Yes, she was an over-the-top woman. She didnt take no for an answer, she stood up for herself. She had a lot of qualities that I hope to possess.Ž And they are qualities that evolve with each performance. Its been great. Every week or so we go to a new city, so its a new opening night and a new audience and a new feel and theater, so it just keeps it new and alive,Ž Ms. Bowman said. The audi-ences are never the same and you never get the same reactions.Ž The touring company is strong.I have a ridiculously talented cast. My costars always keep it freshƒ. Were very active in just listening to each other,Ž she said. I keep saying once this role stops being a work in progress, then Im done.Ž The role continues to evolve.Im growing and still growing. Ill come off the stage and say, Oh, that was different. Or That was angry,Ž she said. And she tries to analyze what changed those nuances of her performances. After all, shes human. So was Eva Peron. I think people forget that about her too. They see her as this manipulative political figure, and they forget that she was a young woman who moved out of her mien in the slums of Argentina and became this huge success, this star, then became the first lady,Ž she said. Its just a really cool story to tell.Ž Q “EVITA”From page 1 >>What: “Evita” >>When: 8 p.m. April 8, 2:00 p.m. and 8 p.m. April 9, 8 p.m. April 10-11, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. April 12 and 2 p.m. April 13.>>Where: Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach>>Cost: Tickets start at $25. >>Info: 832-7469 or kravis.org/evita in the know

Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOHere’s to wines that are good for us and that taste good, tooDespite the makers claims of it being healthier for us, sustainable wines got off to a sluggish start. Wines classified as organic, biodynamic, vegan or sustainable all fall under this cat-egory; making them involves employing practices that are more beneficial to the planet and the consumer. While consumers embraced such practices to a point, they also found that many of the early products just didnt taste all that great. And, because most use fewer preservatives, broad distribution proved challenging. But since winemakers have found solutions to these and other roadblocks, demand for „ and satisfaction with „ such wines has grown to the point that retail stores and restaurants are serving increasing numbers of them. What do the terms organic, sustainable and biodynamic mean? According to Wine Spectator, neither sustainable nor biodynamic have legal defi-nition in the U.S. Only the term organic is regulated, and a wine can only be termed organic if its made from certified organically grown grapes and no sulfites have been added (although there will be some naturally-occurring ones present.) Biodynamic farming is similar to the organic process but involves concepts about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and gen-erally means the winemaker didnt manip-ulate yeast or acidity levels with additives. Sustainability covers a range of practices. As Wine Spectator explains it, sustain-ability practices are not only ecologically sound, but also economically viable and socially responsible. (Sustainable farmers may farm largely organically or biodynami-cally but have flexibility to choose what works best for their individual property; they may also focus on energy and water conservation, use of renewable resources and other issues.) Some third-party agencies offer sustainability certifications, and many regional industry associations are working on developing clearer standards.Ž Heather Smith of the multi-state distribution company Opici Wines says the product appeals to consumers because they know that sustainable farmers are more careful with how they work. Wheth-er they use organic or biodynamic farming practices, they use fewer chemical fertil-izers and they usually provide better work-ing conditions for their help.Ž Prices tend to be reasonable, as most producers want to encourage people to try them. The production level really determines the price point instead of the cost of a mar-keting campaign,Ž Ms. Smith says.

REVIVING 5,000 YEARS OF CIVILIZATION ALL-NEW 2014 SHOWWITH LIVE ORCHESTRA THE SHEN YUN ORCHESTRA FROM THE MOMENT the gong is struck to herald the beginning of the show, you know you are in for something musically memorable.The Shen Yun Orchestra masterfully blends two of the worlds greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western. Ancient Chinese instruments such as the soul-stirring erhu and the delicate pipa lead the melody on top of a full orchestra of West-ern strings, percussion, woodwinds, and brass. The Western orchestra with its energy and grandeur, and the Chinese instruments with their distinct tones and styles, create a dramatic new sound.

From radiant golden-hued Tang Dynasty gowns to elegant Manchu chopine shoes, each costume is designed and tailored with meticulous care. STUNNING BACKDROPS Shen Yuns breathtaking dynamic backdrops bring classical Chinese dance into the 21st century, add-ing visual depth and grandeur. Each backdrop is custom designed to exactly match the costumes, storyline, lighting, and even choreography of each dance. MILLIONS OF PEOPLE have seen Shen Yun. Sold-out shows and standing ovations at the worlds top theaters have made Shen Yun a global phenomenon.

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.
