And the end of season brings with it the end of a couple of fun oppor-tunities to see the area in a different way. Visitors to West Palm Beach can travel back 69 years to the World War II era during a 45-minute ride through the citys center organized by the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority. Local actress Candyce Lewis, assumes the role of Evelyn Chap-man, a young woman engaged to a serviceman returning home from the war. She does a lot of her own research and goes to the museum. Shes very engulfed in doing the show itself on the trolley tours,Ž Teneka James, the DDAs business coordinator, said of Ms. Lewis. Shes a perfect fit for that tour.Ž The $5 tours run weekly at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Fridays and 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturdays through April 19.

Its political power and take-no-prisoners approach to achieving its political aims are legendary. Put its social welfare designation together with its ruthless, anti-gun control agenda, and you get the Clockwork Orange version of what social welfare organizations used to be. Though contributions to 501(c)(4)s are not tax deductible and gift taxes may apply, the tax designation gives the NRA and similar organizations cer-tain advantages. They can, for instance, independently participate in campaigns of candidates running for public office „ as long as they can demonstrate that political advocacy isnt their primary activity. There is enough ambiguity in present Internal Revenue Service rules to make compliance a cakewalk. The 2012 Citizen United decision of the Supreme Court opened the flood-gates to unprecedented amounts of dark moneyŽ in electoral politics. The ruling triggered an explosion in the number of social welfareŽ organizations. Their function in the post-Citizens-United world is to serve as bottomless buckets to attract unlimited sums of money from an elite group of undisclosed donors to fund their campaign activities. The tax designation is a tactical fig leaf to cover what NRA and others do not want publicly revealed about their donors and political assaults. They use coffers of unmarked cash to target law-makers, manipulate the electoral pro-cess, and train our elected representa-tives to heel on command to the dog whistles of special interests. Its not the happy face for social good envisioned in the original text when the tax code first appeared in 1958. In those days, politics were different and less complex. The NRA has blown that all to bits. Exhibit number one is their scorched earth policy to eliminate any form of gun control in this country. They keep score on candidates running or up for re-election for public office like a hawk studying its prey. Retaliation is swift and unrelenting against those who dont kiss their ring or dare challenge their outrageous rhetoric. They use spuri-ous tactics exercised without ethical or moral restraint to annihilate their foes. Their memory is long, too. They wreak vengeance with the enthusiasm of an executioner. They make fools out of lawmakers and corrupt the demo-cratic process using obscene amounts of money given anonymously. The IRS wants to put the genie back in the bottle with its newly proposed regulations. The NRA is having none it; and why would it? It exploits its tax status as a social welfare organization to the hilt. It cul-tivates a grassroots membership of gun enthusiasts deep into the recreational aspects of gun ownership and for whom the Second Amendment means every Americans right to be a trained, edu-cated, and responsible gun owners. This is the NRA as the good Dr. Jekyll. On a sunny day, presumably without another tragic, gun violence event, Dr. Jekyll is preaching Second Amendment civil rights and advancing the social welfare of gun owners with programs of training, education, and safety. Dr. Jekyll racks up in return membership dues from about 5 million NRA members, providing about 50 percent of the NRAs funding. But challenge the NRAs advocacy to proliferate guns in all public spaces or propose gun-control measures, it turns from benevolent to ugly. The NRA becomes the snarling, evil Mr. Hyde, preaching death, doom, and destruc-tion, a creature without conscience. He peddles fear and hysteria, warning, that without armaments, our families are lunchmeat for the brain-eating zombies storming the condos. No one does Mr. Hyde better that NRAs Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre. He gurgles darkly in the face of dissent of the ravages of apocalypse everywhere „ terrorists, home invad-ers, drug cartels, rapists, shopping mall killers, campus killers, carjackers, and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of vio-lence against power grids or vicious ways of chemicals or disease that col-lapse our society that sustains us all.Ž With disgust dripping from his lips, he asks, Do we trust the government to protect us?!Ž He waits for no reply. We are on our own! That is a certainty!Ž Who funds Mr. Hydes survivalist and shoot-to-kill political agenda? We dont really know because its a black box full of anonymous donors. The NRA spreads its vitriol and paranoia without restraint. It proliferates its kill-or-be-killed mentality by preaching chaos and collapse of civility. In NRAs world, more, loaded guns in every pub-lic space are the only solution to gun violence. A torrent of pro-gun, NRA supported legislation is flooding state legislatures, advocated by NRAs lawmakers turned mouth-pieces, to allow guns in bars, restaurants, churches, airports, college campuses, and schools. The gun lunatics are now wholly in charge of the asylum. Welcome to Mr. Hydes world.

Now, evidence is mounting that paints just how grim a future we are making for ourselves and the planet. We will experience more extreme weather events, including hur-ricanes and droughts, mass extinctions and severe food shortages globally. The worlds leading group of climate-change experts, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has issued its most recent report after a five-day meeting last week in Yokohama, Japan. The IPCC, over 1,800 scientists from around the world, collects, analyzes and synthesizes the best, solid sci-ence on climate and related fields. The prognosis is not good. At the news conference announcing the report, IPCC chairperson Rajendra Pachauri warned, If the world doesnt do anything about mitigating the emis-sions of greenhouse gases and the extent of climate change continues to increase, then the very social stability of human systems could be at stake.Ž Pachauri speaks with the discipline of a scientist and the reserve of a diplo-mat. The latest report, though, states clearly: Climate change can indirectly increase risks of violent conflicts in the form of civil war and inter-group vio-lence.Ž It stresses how the world food supply, already experiencing stress, will be impacted, and those who are most vulnerable will be the first to go hungry. But the problem is even larger. The IPCCs previous comprehensive report came out in 2007. Since that time, the amount of scientific findings has doubled, making human-induced climate change an irrefutable fact. But there are still powerful deniers, funded by the fossil-fuel industry. Oxfam, a global anti-hunger campaign organiza-tion, also is challenging the deniers with a report released last week called Hot and hungry „ how to stop cli-mate change derailing the fight against hunger.Ž Oxfams Tim Gore says that corporations like Exxon, the powerful economic interests that are currently profiting from our high-carbon eco-nomic model ... stand to lose the most from a transition to a low-carbon, fair alternative.Ž Undaunted, ExxonMobil issued its own report following the IPCCs this week, asserting that cli-mate policies are highly unlikelyŽ to stop it from producing and selling fos-sil fuels in the near future. Fossil-fuel corporations like ExxonMobil exert enormous influence over climate-change policy, especially in the United States. The U.S. House of Representatives this week passed a measure that would effectively force the National Oceanic and Atmospher-ic Administration and related bod-ies to ignore climate change, focusing instead on forecasting severe weather, but not its likely causes. Meanwhile, at the state level, the Tennessee Sen-ate passed a bill banning investment in certain forms of public transit. According to ThinkProgress, the mea-sure received critical funding from the billionaire Republican oil barons Charles and David Koch. The politi-cal influence of people like the Kochs will likely become more direct, with the U.S. Supreme Courts decision to eliminate personal contribution caps to candidates in its ruling in the case of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Com-mission. One of the IPCC report authors, Bangladeshi climate scientist Saleemul Huq, put it this way on the Democ-racy Now!Ž news hour: Fossil-fuel companies ... are the drug suppliers to the rest of the world who are junkies and are hooked on fossil fuels. But we dont have to remain hooked on fossil fuels. We are going to have to cut our-selves off from them if we want to see a real transition and prevent tempera-ture rises up to 4 degrees Celsius [7.2 degrees Fahrenheit].Ž That is the crux of the crisis: The major polluting nations are obstruct-ing a binding global agreement to com-bat climate change. They have agreed, in principle, with the rest of the world, at the United Nations climate nego-tiations, to limit greenhouse-gas emis-sions to levels that would allow a global temperature increase of only 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahren-heit). But the science says that goal is quickly slipping away, and that we are facing a 4-degree increase Princeton professor Michael Oppenheimer, another IPCC report co-author, told me: Its not just a problem for the rest of the world ... think about Hur-ricane Sandy. Think about how hard it was to deal with that storm. Thats todays storms. Think about what hap-pens over the next 10, 20, 30 years, when sea level goes up and the storms get worse.Ž America is addicted to oil,Ž President George W. Bush, himself a failed oilman, famously said at his State of the Union address in 2006. The U.S. political establishment is swimming in fossil-fuel money, which is drowning democracy. Change will come from grass-roots organizing, from move-ments like students pushing their uni-versity endowments to divest from fossil-fuel corporations, from local communities fighting against frack-ing, and from the growing nonviolent direct-action campaign to block the Keystone XL pipeline. 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.Obamacare’s master of false assurance A core competency of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is issuing false assurances. An administration about-face has left the Cabinet official looking like the Bagh-dad Bob of American health insurance. When Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, asked her at a hearing two weeks ago wheth-er the administration would extend the Obamacare enrollment period beyond March 31, she responded with a crisp and direct: No, sir.Ž To the uninitiated, that sounded like an unmistakable denial of any inten-tion to delay the enrollment period. The uninitiated were sadly misled. The secretary subsequently referred in her testimony to a delayed enrollment period for people who were unable to enroll through no fault of their own.Ž It turns out that the administrations definition of these frustrated would-be enrollees includes ... well, everyone. The Washington Post reports that the administration will rely on the honor systemŽ to determine if people enrolling past the deadline are hardship cases, A few weeks ago, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medic-aid Services, which runs HealthCare.gov, told reporters we dont actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.Ž As if that would be an obstacle. The enrollment extension is in the same spir-it as the administrations partial enact-ment in 2012 of the DREAM Act through executive fiat „ after President Barack Obama said in 2011 that he didnt have the authority for such a change. It is a testament to the Obama administrations audacity that it doesnt just defy the critics view of its lawful author-ity, it defies its own view of its lawful authority. News of the extension of the enrollment period came on the same day that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia heard arguments in Halbig v. Sebelius, a case involving arguably the most sweeping act of lawlessness in Obamacares implementation. The text of the Affordable Care Act says that only exchanges set up by the states are eligible for subsidies. Since so many states didnt set up exchanges, the Obama administration decided that enrollees on the federal exchanges can also get the subsidies. Its defense in Hal-big v. Sebelius is, true to form, that the law doesnt mean what it says. Obamacare has been a long workshop in improv tragicomedy. The delays, regulatory rewritings and extensions are always an attempt simply to live for another day, to put off the political pain of cancellations, or rate hikes, or layoffs, and to get just enough traction to make the law viable. Millions have signed up for the exchanges, but its not clear that the demographic mix is right to avoid steep premium increases by insurers in 2015. So far, it looks like young people „ essential to making the economics of the exchanges work „ arent signing up in the necessary numbers. The extension is surely a ploy to squeeze every last young invincibleŽ out of the current enrollment period, and hope the news for the rates in 2015 isnt so bad. And after that? Its anybodys guess. All we know for sure is that whatever Kathleen Sebelius says today may not be operative tomorrow. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Thats what Ive been wondering lately as we struggle to medicate the ears of Keeper, one of our cavalier King Charles spaniels. Cavaliers are supposed to be among the most biddable of breeds, but you wouldnt know it from him. Its like wrestling a bear to get him to hold still. One night, I waited until he was settled on my lap, which worked some-what better, but I still think I got more medication on the sofa than in his ears. The next morning, I used a little psy-chological tactic that has worked well in the past when there are multiple dogs in the home. Gather some treats. Call the dog you dont want. Usually they will all come running anyway if they know you have treats. Pick up the dog who doesnt need treatment and put her on the treatment area (on top of the dryer in our house). Give her a treat, comb her or fondle her ears, give her lots of praise and then give more treats. Set her down. (Adjust this advice as needed for large dogs.) By this time, the dog who needs medica-tion or grooming is eager to undergo treatment, too. Repeat, giving lots of treats and praise before, during and after medicating the ears, brushing the teeth or whatever it is your dog doesnt like you to do. Voila! Medicated ears with a minimum of fuss. Easter is coming up, bringing the reminder that Easter lilies are highly toxic to cats. The leaves, flowers, pollen and even the water in the vase can all cause severe and possibly fatal kidney failure in your cat. Do not bring these flowers into your home. If you receive them as a gift, pass them on to a cat-free neighbor or friend. Your wallet will thank you for saving it from a very expensive veterinary bill. More cool pet products. Dr. Becker attended Global Pet Expo in Orlando last month and chose 10 products as Beckers Best. We featured five last week, and the other five are here. Check out all 10, with photos, at Vetstreet.com. Q Does your dog wolf his food and then throw up because he ate so fast?

You can increase the weight of the Tuggo Dog Toy by adding water, bringing it up to as much as 20 pounds. The attached rope allows your dog to play by himself, with another dog or with you. $29.99 at tuggodogtoy.com.Q If you live in a condo or high-rise or have a puppy or old dog who needs to potty frequently, but youre not always home, the Piddle Place Pet Relief Sys-tem could relieve your woes. The unit has a drain for urine, carrying it out of sight until you can empty it, and a clean-ing solution prevents odors. The grassy cover is even machine-washable. $99 to $119 at piddleplace.com.

A8 WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Founder members donate $500,000 for Kravis Center technology fund SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Judith Mitchell, CEO of the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, has announced a major gift of $500,000 from Dr. David and Ingrid Kosowsky to establish and implement technology priorities at the Kravis Center. According to Ms. Mitchell, The Ingrid and David Kosowsky Technology Development Fund will help the Kravis Center to become a trendsetter in the region, and is designed to inspire addi-tional donors to contribute to its mis-sion. The Kravis Center is in the process of determining and assessing its current technological needs, as it embarks on the next chapter of its history with a strategic planning process. We are so honored by this very generous gift from David and Ingrid Kosowsky,Ž Ms. Mitchell said in a pre-pared statement. Their leadership and contributions to the Kravis Center over the years have been, and continue to be, very important. With this very special gift to establish The Ingrid and David Kosowsky Technology Development Fund, they are ensuring that the Kravis Center will be able to remain at the fore-front of the technology needed to best serve our audiences and to provide our artists with the best theater technology available.Ž Dr. and Mrs. Kosowsky are founder members at the Kravis Center, where they contributed to the original build-ing campaign, have provided support for our annual campaign every year and have sponsored many performances including the centers gala. They also are members of the Helen K. Persson Society to support the centers Perma-nently Restricted Endowment fund. Ingrid and I are pleased to make this gift to the Kravis Center as an invest-ment for the future. We are convinced that a fund devoted to implementing new technologies will not only provide the finest and most memorable arts and cultural performances, but it will help attract the best artists and the next gen-eration of supporters to sustain growth in the future,Ž said Dr. Kosowsky in the statement. Elected to the Kravis Board of Directors in 2009, Dr. Kosowsky is the chair of the information technology commit-tee, a new standing committee of the board. He also is a member of the strategic planning committee, which he chaired for four years. He also served on the building and grounds committee.

FOOD + DRINK BY CHRISTOPHERS KITCHEN, CHUCK BURGER JOINT, AND MORE! I-RESOLUTION MAGIC BUS THE SWEETCHARIOTS Job security in the paperwork mineThe trucks full of paperwork come every day,Ž wrote The Washington Post in March, down a country road in Boyers, Pa., north of Pittsburgh, and descend into the earthŽ to deliver fed-eral retiree applications to the eight supermarketŽ-sized caverns 230 feet below ground where Office of Person-nel Management bureaucrats process them „ manually „ and store them in 28,000 metal filing cabinets. Applica-tions thus take 61 days on average to process (compared to Texas automated system, which takes two). One step requires a records index to be digitized „ but a later step requires that the digital portion be printed out for fur-ther manila-foldered file work. OPM blames contractors technology failures and bizarrely complicated retirement laws, but no relief is in sight except the hiring of more workers (and fortunately, cave-bound paper-shuffling is a well-regarded job around Boyers).The continuing crisisQ In February, officials in Sudan seized at least 70 female sheep that had male sexual organs sewn on „ the result of livestock smugglers trying to circumvent export restrictions. (Ewes are valued more highly, and their sale is limited.) Authorities had been treat-ing the inspections as routine until they spotted one ramŽ urinating from the female posture. Q Karma: Michael Schell, 24, and Jessica Briggs, 31, were arrested on sev-eral charges in Minot, N.D., in February when police were called to a conve-nience store because Mr. Schell and Ms. Briggs had commandeered a restroom and were having noisy sex. The store is part of the Iowa-based chain of 400 serving the Midwest that go by the name Kum & Go. Democracy bluesQ U.S. Rep. Robert Andrews announced his retirement in February, after 23 years of representing his New Jersey district, and in tribute,Ž The Washington Post suggested he might be the least successful lawmaker of the past two decades, in that he had sponsored a total of 646 pieces of legislation „ more than any of his contemporaries „ but that not a single one became law. In fact, Mr. Andrews has not accomplished even the easiest of all bill-sponsoring „ to name a post office or a courthouse. Q November election returns for the city council of Flint, Mich., revealed that voters chose two convicted felons (Wantwaz Davis and Eric Mays) and two other candidates who had been through federal bankruptcy. Mr. Davis never publicized his 1991 second-degree murder plea, but said he talked about it while campaigning. (The Flint Journal acknowledged that it had poorly vetted Mr. Davis record.) InexplicableQ The Internal Revenue Service reportedly hit the estate of Michael Jackson recently with a federal income tax bill of $702 million because of undervaluing properties that it owned „ including a valuation on the Jack-son-owned catalog of Beatles songs at zero.Ž The estate reckoned that Mr. Jackson was worth a total of $7 million upon his death in 2009, but IRS placed the number at $1.125 billion. (In 2012 alone, according to Forbes magazine, Mr. Jackson earned more than any other celebrity, living or dead, at about $160 million.) Q The North Somerset office of Britains National Health Service issued a formal apology in January to Leanda Preston, 31, who had accused it of rac-ismŽ because of the pass phrase she received to access the system for an appointment to manage her fibromy-algia. Ms. Preston, who is black, had received the random, computer-generat-ed pass phrase charcoal shade,Ž which she complained was offensive,Ž dem-onstrating that NHS therefore lacked decencyŽ and common sense.Ž Unclear on the conceptA Florida appeals court tossed out an $80,000 anti-discrimination settlement in February because the beneficiarys teenage daughter could not refrain from bragging about it „ even though the terms of the settlement required confi-dentiality. Gulliver Proprietary School in Miami had offered the sum to for-mer headmaster Patrick Snay to make Mr. Snays lawsuit go away, but Dana Snay almost immediately told her 1,200 Facebook friends that Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. Suck it.Ž Wrote the court, (Snays) daughter did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent.Ž PerspectiveA controversial landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2005 for the first time allowed a city to force unwilling owners to sell private prop-erty not for a school or police station or other traditional municipal necessity, but just because a developer promised to improve the neighborhood. Con-sequently, longtime residents such as Susette Kelo were forced off their land because the city of New London, Conn., had hopes of a prosperous buildup anchored by a new facility from the drugmaker Pfizer. The Weekly Standard magazine reported in February that, nine years down the road, Pfizer has backed out, and the 90-acre area of New London in which Ms. Kelo and others were bulldozed off of is waist-high in weeds „ an even worse blight than that which New London sacrificed private property rights in order to prevent.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY CEO of Menin Development Inc., the plaza owners. The shopping center was built in 1975 „ more than a decade before The Gar-dens Mall opened. At the time, a Winn-Dixie grocery store was the anchor of the 113,000-square-foot space. Marshalls moved in during the 90s, taking over the grocery stores spot and bringing in new shoppers from around the North County area. It proved to be a profitable move, and has become the No. 2 store in the chain in Florida in sales, Mr. Jacoby says. Its extremely busy and brings in shoppers from a broad demographic. Trader Joes will expand on that and will draw from a wide spectrum.Ž Trader Joes, a specialty grocery chain from California, is growing rapidly into Florida. Its first store in Palm Beach County is scheduled to open in Welling-ton in May; others in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and the Palm Beach Gardens location all are expected to open by the end of the year. An $88 million central warehouse for the chain in Daytona Beach is close to becoming reality, according to reports in the Orlando Business Journal. The grocers spokespeople are tightlipped about their plans, however; any news about them is parsed from the plazas where they express interest. The negotiations for the grocery to become a PGA Plaza tenant took four to five years, Mr. Jacoby said, but was worth it. We needed to add another anchor.Ž Trader Joes was a good fit, with plenty of specialty shoppers in the area already creating successes at Whole Foods and Publix GreenWise markets nearby. Mr. Hoffman said Trader Joes will handle the build-out of the 12,500square-foot space that will be shared with Ulta, a beauty specialty store sell-ing salon products and offering some salon services. Well do the shell, including utilities. They have their own people taking over to finish it. We expect to turn it over to them at the end of May.Ž Meanwhile, the plaza is getting its public facelift, with determined shop-pers picking their way through the park-ing lots, sidewalks and facades that are being demolished and dodging workers operating the heavy construction equip-ment on site. Were upgrading the landscaping with palms and took off the old arcade front,Ž Mr. Jacoby said. Were adding towers, trellises, awnings and parking. The front will look like a brand new center.Ž Mr. Hoffman showed the plans that include new signage along PGA Bou-levard, with uplighted palms lining the expanded entrance and other landscap-ing filling in. A new parking layout includes 22 more spaces. Well be adding the architectural details like the red towers,Ž Mr. Hoff-man said. And building out Anthonys Pizza front and adding an outdoor seat-ing area.Ž Red iron towers at the PGA Boulevard and Prosperity Farms entrances were designed by the architects of the proj-ect, Glidden Spina & Partners of West Palm Beach. The developers worked closely with the city of Palm Beach Gardens. Theyve been great to work with,Ž Mr. Jacoby said. Its tricky, since youre dealing with an existing property. Its not like building a new one where you have more options.Ž To bring in Trader Joes, part of the plaza had to be torn down to be rebuilt. In that move, The Snuggery Bar and Grill, a longtime local favorite for late-nighters, had to be moved into a new space west of the old one. He (owner Bernie Krischner) got himself a nice new sports bar,Ž Mr. Jacoby said. I believe hes happy. If he wasnt, he wouldnt be here.Ž The bar switched spaces in January, completing the move in less than 24 hours. Hes the kind of tenant you like,Ž Mr. Jacoby said. Hes been here since the 70s. Nice guy. Everybody up here knows the place and most people have been there at least once at 3 a.m. I have a friend who met his wife there. Theyre still married.Ž Tom Khan, one of the owners of Garys All-Brite Dry Cleaners, said the shop has been there 25 years, though hes only owned it two of those. Hes pleased with the progress of the plaza. Theyre doing the best they can. Its a little inconvenience, and weve been slightly affected by the construction. But the makeover was long overdue. We needed it.Ž He was surprised to hear the July date of completion given out. July „ really? Thats ahead of schedule. They were projecting December 2014 before they broke ground in October.Ž Mr. Khan is excited, too, about Ulta Beauty coming in, and figures having a dry-cleaner in the plaza will be a boon to those specific shoppers. We are anticipating all the clientele coming in from the beauty store next door. We expect a lot of foot traffic.Ž Rents are sure to rise, though Mr. Jacoby would give no figures for pre-construction or anticipated hikes after Trader Joes comes in. We dont share those numbers, since each lease is nego-tiated individually,Ž he said. Rick Davis, co-owner of C.R. Chicks, a 19-year tenant, said rent hikes arent in his future. He and business partner Chris Sallen signed a new lease before the construction for his rotisserie chick-en take-out store. It wouldnt affect us. We had renegotiated our lease for 10 more years. The new owners have to abide by our contract, and we have a clause that says specifically there can be no capital improvements after our lease that will apply. Thankfully, we had a great law-yer,Ž he said. Hes excited to see a Trader Joes in the neighborhood and expects the shop-ping center traffic to boom and attract other tenants as well. No new tenants have yet been announced, but there are some in the works, Mr. Jacoby said. As you might imagine, its become a very desirable property. Stay tuned.Ž Though hed like to expand „ It would be our wildest wish!Ž „ Menin cannot, limited to the boundaries of the existing center. Theres only so much land there, and weve squeezed out every inch we can.Ž Q REVAMPFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOTrader Joe’s at PGA Plaza at PGA and Prosperity Farms Road joins others opening in Palm Beach County: Wellington opens in May, and others will open in Delray Beach and Boca Raton. A variety of architectural details is being added to the plaza, including red towers, outside seating, new landscaping and more parking spaces.

The store has a cult-like fan base.Annie OReilly, a teacher in West Palm Beach is a die-hard fan and cant wait for the Gardens store to open. I grew up on Trader Joes in California,Ž she said. Its eclectic, wonderful food. Its like a cooler, much less expensive younger brother of Whole Foods. The vibe in the store is so mellow. Their staff is all friendly and cool. I love their made-in-house products and store brands. Their prepared foods and cheese section and charcuterie, artisanal breads „ all kinds of interest-ing stuff in there. You never know what youre going to find „ theres so much stuff. You dont notice it all the first time, and you go back, and it will be like the first time again, you see so many interesting things.Ž Her mom sends George, her dog, peanut butter dog biscuits as a care pack-age from the San Diego Trader Joes where she shops. Hes so picky, but he loves their biscuits.Ž Tracy Augustin, publisher of the South Florida food blog 2 Forks and a Cork, is a new devotee. We were in Naples at Thanksgiving and went to the one over there. I liked it so much I went back two days in a row and spent $100 each time. I felt it was like going to Disney World. I grew up down here and the concept is so different from our main-stream stores. I liked the openness, the cleanliness and the packaging for foods to take home „ everything was so fresh. And their wines are very inexpensive.Ž The cap for her was how they packed her groceries for travel across Alligator Alley. They take frozen water bottles you can buy for 5 cents, and put them on top of your groceries or in your cooler for the trip home to keep them cold. I loved that.Ž Chef consultant Andrew Rothschild says the grocery chain has come a long way since its early days. I grew up shopping at them in Morristown, N.J. and Chicago. Back then, they were all oats and granola. Now, theyre on top of the food trends.Ž Prices are the big draw for the chef. Produce, nuts, whole grains „ they have a lot of the same things at Whole Foods, but much cheaper. Whole Foods is exorbitant. I recently bought quinoa there and it was crazy „ something like $10 a pound in bulk. Thats crazy money. Trader Joes would be significantly less for that same thing.Ž Private chef Jenny Elfving drives to Miamis Trader Joes to pick up certain foods she uses at her job for a Jupiter Island resident. They have things you just cant get anywhere else.Ž She buys their house brands like a roasted red pepper spread she thinks is better than some home-made ones, and a peanut dressing she uses to marinate chicken. There arent huge varieties of one thing „ not 50 mustards, for instance „ but a lot of products to choose from. I can spend hours in there just looking at the shelves. And their frozen prepared hors doeuvres are great quality „ for entertaining at home when the cook is focused on the main meal and maybe doesnt have time to make all the cock-tail foods, theyd be great for a party.Ž Rob Russell, entertainment director of the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, was introduced to a Trader Joes in Califor-nia during a visit to actress and friend Faith Prince. Ive never been so impressed with a store as I was with that one. They have unique items you just dont see any-where else. Their shelves and displays are so neat. And they have the most gor-geous cut flowers and exotics Id ever seen in a grocery store or market like that. Wed get the best hors doeuvres, and prepared foods for take-out „ very good quality and very fresh. And they have some great wines at very reason-able prices.Ž Trader Joes is known for introducing Two Buck Chuck, $2 bottle of table wines that took California by storm.

The good thing is pain relief, via Tylenol. The too-much is liver damage. I think weve always known that Tylenol is a risk to the liver,Ž says Good Samaritan Medical Centers Dr. K.C. Cohen, a general and hepatopancre-aticobiliary surgeon „ that latter part meaning that she specializes in liver and pancreas surgery. Its only that the FDA regulations have called it to public attention.Ž Heres what the FDA has done: It has asked manufacturers to limit the strength of acetaminophen to 325 milligrams (mg) per tablet or capsule in prescription drug products … and has recommended that health-care professionals adhere to that limit in prescribing and dispensing acet-aminophen … i.e. Tylenol. Tylenol? That most popular of pain remedies? Yep. Seems that too many people casually take over-the-counter (OTC) medications in the belief that their easy availability renders them harmless. And that can lead to trouble. Big trouble. According to the FDA, more than 600 medications „ over-the-counter and prescription „ contain the active ingredient acetaminophen, which helps to reduce pain and fever. Were talking about the likes of Nyquil, Alka-Seltzer, Motrin and Robitussin, to name just a handful. So, lets say a person has a nasty cold and starts taking every-four-hour doses of cough-and-flu medication to relieve the symptoms. Many such products contain acetaminophen. But a headache begins pounding, so the sniffle-y, cough-y person also pops a couple of Extra Strength Tylenol. More acetaminophen. Its that unintentional combination that can spell O-V-E-R-D-O-S-E. Another risk scenario: Your doctor has prescribed Percoset or Vicodin for pain (both contain, yes, acetamino-phen). Maybe the pain is post-surgery, maybe some other cause … but youre seeking a bit more pain relief. You add Tylenol to the mix. Bad idea. The FDA has reported that the leading cause of calls to Poison Control Centers nationwide is acetaminophen overdose … more than 100,000 calls a year. And a 2007 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report cited an esti-mated 1,600 cases of acute liver failure. Other earlier studies noted a whopping 56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations and 458 deaths related to acetaminophen-related ODs per year from 1990 to 1998. The signs and symptoms of liver damage can be sneaky. Days may pass before they appear „ and they often mimic a cold or the flu: loss of appe-tite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain. The maximum adult dose currently rec-ommended, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is 4,000 mil-ligrams per day. Given the widespread usage of acetaminophen products, such overdoses are relatively rare. But, says Dr. Cohen, Tylenol overdose is the Number One overdose in the United States.Ž The FDA reported that, as of January 2011, overdoses from prescription medications containing acetaminophen accounted for nearly half of all cases of acetaminophen-related liver injury in the U.S. In extreme cases, acute liver failure has resulted in liver transplants and even deaths. It happens like this: Tylenol is absorbed quickly into the blood via the gastrointestinal tract. The blood filters through the liver, where most of the drug is metabolized, meaning its broken down, and its components are eliminated in the urine. But when Tylenol is taken in excess, forcing the liver to suddenly metabo-lize overdose amounts, the additional toxic metabolites … the substance that remains after a drug is broken down … begin to harm liver cells. If (acetaminophen) didnt metabolize, if it just went through the system, there wouldnt be a problem,Ž Dr. Cohen says. At normal doses, the liver is able to make enough enzymes to neutralize the metabolite and rid the body of it.Ž On its web site, the FDA points out that most cases of severe liver damage took place when a person: € Took more than the prescribed dose of an acetaminophen-containing prod-uct in a 24-hour period. € Took more than one acetaminophen-containing product at the same time. € Drank alcohol while taking the drug.Tylenol has been in use since the 1950s, and, Dr. Cohen says, she hates to see the drug get a bad rap because of overuse. Its really a good drug,Ž she says. Its not habit-forming, and it does its job. Anything over 325 milligrams per dose isnt really helpful. It isnt worth risking your liver. Most people think, Oh, one (tablet) is good, two are better, three must be best. But a single Extra Strength Tylenol contains 500 mg of acetaminophen, so if you take three tablets every four hours throughout the day . you can see how easily a person can overdose.Ž If a person feels the need to take more than that, she says, theres probably a diagnosable condition that requires a visit to the doctor. People think theres an extra magic in Extra Strength,Ž Dr. Cohen says. But its really just more Tylenol.Ž Q FDA spreads concern about people taking too much acetaminophenBY MARY JANE FINEmj“ ne@” oridaweekly.com COHEN “Better safe than sorry” is the mantra to follow when taking Tylenol. The FDA recommends:  Always check the “Drug Facts” label on over-the-counter cold, cough and u medica-tions before you use two or more products.  Unsure about what’s safe? Ask the pharmacist for advice.  It’s wise to tell the pharmacist what other medications – and supplements – you’re taking and asking if it’s safe to add acetaminophen.  Acetaminophen and alcohol may not be a good mix. If you drink three or more alcoholic beverages a day, be sure to check with your doctor before taking any product that contains acetaminophen.  Is Tylenol safe for a child? The Drug Facts label should give you the “if” and “how much” information. If age-and-weight dosages aren’t explained on the label, ask the pharmacist or your doctor what to do.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYGood Samaritan Medical Center offers women the choice of water birthsWomen have a number of choices when it comes to giving birth. One of these options is water birthing, which gives mothers the opportunity for increased relaxation and comfort. At Good Samaritan Medical Center, our Maternity Services and Special Deliv-eries program offers the option of renting special birthing tubs filled with soothing water that can help reduce stress hor-mones and pain during labor. Women can choose to use the tub just during labor or for both labor and delivery. Here are some reasons one might want to consider a water birth: Q Some women find water helps them relax during labor. Q Being relaxed may help decrease stress hormones and allow a more func-tional progression of labor and, perhaps, less pain. Q Some women find that the relative weightlessness caused by water buoy-ancy helps with repositioning, comfort and muscle support. Q The buoyant effect of water may lessen muscle tension and promote relaxation. Q When a woman in labor relaxes, breathing becomes easier, which may provide optimal oxygenation for both mother and baby. Q Laboring in water may relax pelvic floor tissue and may decrease the need for an episiotomy. There havent been many studies done on water birth. One study in Switzerland that was published in Fetal Diagnosis and Therapy looked at the results of more than 2,000 water births. According to the authors of the study, water births resulted in fewer episi-otomies and less maternal blood loss. Women choosing water birth also used fewer pain medications. There are some risks that should be discussed with your physician or mid-wife before choosing water birth. In rare cases, the baby may breathe before being lifted from the water. Breathing in water may decrease the amount of sodium in the babys blood, a condition called hyponatremia. Anyone who has been diagnosed with an infection or excessive bleeding should not consider water birth. Also, women with pregnancy-related compli-cations such as toxemia (bacteria in the bloodstream), preeclampsia (high blood pressure) or pre-term labor should forgo water birth. Because infections such as herpes can be passed to the baby through the water, women with genital herpes should not use water birth. Women who are pregnant with twins or multiples or who are at risk for preg-nancy complications should talk to their doctor about whether water birth is a safe option. If you do decide to have a water birth, here are some ways you can make your experience safer: Q Drink lots of water during the delivery to prevent dehydration. Q Talk to your doctor or midwife about what will be done in case of com-plications. Q Visit the hospital and talk to the staff about birthing options. Ask for a tour so you can see the labor and deliv-ery area, including the birthing tub.Each woman should design and discuss her specific birth plan with a physician or certified nurse midwife. In addition to water birthing, Good Samaritan Medi-cal Center offers private patient suites, a Level II NICU, a Childbirth Education Program and specialized birth plans.To learn more about water birth classes or the other birthing options available at Good Samaritan Medical Center, please call 650-6023 or visit www.goodsamaritanmc.com. Q HEALTHY LIVINGFeeling snubbed by one group of “friends?” Seek out new onesPlease dont think Im totally ridiculous, but I cant shake this horrible feeling of rejection. Im a woman in my 60s; I ran a successful business in Boston and managed 50 employees. But since John and I retired to Florida three years ago, Im having feelings I havent had since high school. Ive played tennis and bridge for years, and I consider myself a decent player. We moved into a country club community and looked forward to making new friends and enjoying a relaxed lifestyle. Theres a group of women I was really hoping to become friendly with. Theyve known each other for years and are out with each other all the time. At first, they were friendly enough and were receptive when I signed up for games. But over time, it felt like I was doing all the reaching out and the others werent reciprocating. Even so, I thought I was finally breaking in recently when I suffered one humiliation after another. The pro shop paired me in a tournament with Beverly G. When I saw her in the gym and said I was looking forward to playing with her, she gave me a funny look and said it was a mistake. The next thing I knew, I found that the pairings had been changed. Beverly is friendly with a group of women I had hoped to become friendly with. The very next day, I was in the nail salon and overheard a couple of women talking about a party given by Evelyn R., Beverlys good friend. I play bridge regularly with Evelyn and couldnt help but feel snubbed to not be invited. When I complained to John, he told me to let it go; that these women arent worth the bother. It doesnt seem to concern him whether were included in the social life or not. But hes firmly ensconced in a mens golf game and seems to really enjoy the camaraderie. When I asked John if he thought I was doing anything wrong, he laughed and said maybe Im too bossy, and talk too much; that I might treat the women the way I used to manage my employees. When I asked him if he was really serious he said: Forget it. Youre fine.Ž But I cant forget about it and let it go. I used to be so confident in business and social situations. Now, with these women, Ive become so self-conscious. At every life stage, people often reach out socially, not only for new and stimu-lating experiences, but to build a net-work for emotional support and cama-raderie. It can be terribly hurtful to feel excluded. Many of us feel such pride when were part of the inner circle of any group or organization. To know that others like us and value our participa-tion can be an important boost to our self-esteem. Sometimes, existing groups are just that: a group of people who are friendly and close among themselves and not interested in extending their world. Their exclusion may not imply they dont like us. They may not even be aware how much theyve hurt us. Rath-er, they may be quite comfortable with their social life as is, and are just not looking to make new friends. However, for some, cliques can be about power and control, and maintain-ing a sphere of influence. Of course there may be petty or mean-spirited people in every group; and we know there are those who enjoy what THEY believe is a sense of superiority. Some of these people may truly believe their social stature will be elevated if they are part of an exclusive group. Lets consider why we would even desire to join a group that is unfriendly. A lot of us consciously or unconsciously still carry a mindset from a previous time in our lives: the group we are part of is a statement of our worth. Were still angling to be included with the in-groupŽ because we may believe this bol-sters our social standing. Current hurts re-awaken insecurities from our past. Its important for us to consider what we, ourselves, bring to the equation. When we give others the power to make us think poorly of ourselves, we participate in bringing ourselves to a hurt, demoralized place. When were able to state to ourselves that we wont give ANY group or individual the power to unreasonably upset us, we empower ourselves to move in different direc-tions. Lets consider the fictionalized experience of the woman above. Shes clearly demonstrated tremendous ability and talent throughout her life. For all of us, finding ways to feel true pride in our unique assets and talents is an important step to shield ourselves from the barbs of rejection. This is how we ultimately learn to validate ourselves, rather that looking for others to deter-mine our ultimate worth. While we would never want to criticize or blame her for other peoples rudeness, it may be valuable to pick up on Johns statement. Perhaps she could take a step back to consider how shes interfaced with these women. Could she have been inflexible or bossy? People who have been in long-standing games have developed their own way of doing things. While she might actually have had some great pointers, the others might not have taken too kindly to her suggestions. They may have been offended themselves, thinking she was acting superior. If John was on target and his wife has a tendency to talk a lot (especially if shes nervous in a social situation), it might be helpful for her to quietly gauge to see if shes been disturbing others. Perhaps, if she took some energy away from trying so hard with this par-ticular group, she might ultimately feel less insecure when in their presence. And, of course, there may be tremen-dous value for her to reach out indi-vidually to others she might not have previously considered. The wonderful thing about most of the communities in our area is that theyre comprised of a large cross section of people. Meeting new people who are receptive could be a tremendous boost to our confidence. Sometimes, were so emotionally invest-ed in our current world, we overlook the other possibilities around us.

Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON I’m having a skin cancer is removed from my face. How can the scar be mini-malized? Years of sun exposure in South Florida is a big risk factor for facial skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma are listed from most common to most aggressive. I encourage all of my patients to wear facial sun-block and protec-tive clothing, such as a hat with a wide brim, when outside or driving. The damage from the sun is cumulative so starting at a young age is best. Dermatologists most often diagnose skin cancers, but I have discovered many during routine evaluations. Treatment typically involves removing the tumor which results in a hole in the skin. Reconstruction can be complicated but our goal is to repair this hole with minimally noticeable scars. There are many techniques for skin cancer removal. With any technique, the edges of the tissue are checked to ensure there are no tumor cells left behind. Reconstruction is then performed using the technique most appropriate for the location and size of the hole. As a plastic surgeon, the algorithm involves options such as skin flaps or skin grafts. We strive to restore your pre-cancer appearance as best as possible. Simple repairs can be done under local anesthesia, but more complicated cases are best done under general anesthesia. If you have recently been diagnosed with a facial skin cancer, call my office for a full evaluation and explanation of reconstructive Michael Lipan, M.D., Facial Plastic SurgeonGardens Cosmetic Center Facial Skin Cancer Reconstruction ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: I have a terrible fear of going to the dentist. What should I do? Answer: If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dentalphobia, or fear of the dentist, is one of the most common fears, second only to public speaking. The key to coping with dental anxiety is to discuss your fears with your dentist. Once your dentist knows your fears, he will be better able to work with you to determine the best ways to make you less anxious and more comfortable. The good news is that today there are a number of strategies that can be tailored to the individual to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain. You may have heard of Sedation Den-tistry described in a variety of ways: “ Anxi-ety Free Dentistry”, “Mild Oral Sedation”, or “Twilight State.” Some dentists offer mild oral sedation which involves prescribing a sedative to relax & reduce stress. All of these procedures refer to you being given a seda-tive before treatment. For patients who want to be totally unaware of the treatment or are in need of longer dental procedures, IV sedation is the preferred treatment. IV Sedation is highly reliable, safe & effective for comfort & amnesia during all types of dental treatment. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified Sedation Dentist, and it’s onset is immediate & can be increased easily & rapidly to meet the individual’s needs. This is a huge advan-tage compared to oral sedation. Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986. He is an active member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and designated Master Cosmetic Dentist by the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry.He’s been awarded Diplomate Certification from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate from the American Dental Implant Association and a Mastership from the Misch International Implant Institute. He’s a member of The American Academy of Oral Implantologists.Dr. Ajmo is Board Certified in IV sedation and maintains an active mem-bership with the American Society of Dental Anesthesiology. Jay L.

Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_______________________________Junior League of Palm Beaches to focus on foster care SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Junior League of the Palm Beaches is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, devel-oping the potential of women and improving communi-ties throughout Palm Beach County. Current-ly involved with local organizations such as Nelle Smith, Vita Nova and the Department of Juvenile Justice, the League has spent the past year analyzing and assessing the next impact area to focus on for the future. In early 2013, the League began a year-long community-needs assessment to determine programs in dire need of additional assistance within Palm Beach County. This included tremendous research and in-depth discussions with other nonprofit, government and for-profit organizations in Palm Beach County to identify areas of unmet need. The League was looking in particular for a niche that would complement other existing projects and programs, while allowing League members to continue to fulfill our mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve the community. In February, after much discussion and debate among the League as a whole, members voted to adopt foster care as its impact area. The League will operate under this impact area for a minimum of three years, beginning with the 2014-15 League year this September.

Reservations are required for the tours. This year, more people are calling ahead, and booking not just for them-selves, but for family,Ž she said. A lot of them are repeat customers.Ž Another tour worthy of repeat customers: the weekly historical walking tour of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Historian Rick Rose, who also is coowner of the Grandview Gardens bed and breakfast in West Palm Beachs Grandview Heights neighborhood, dons a jaunty straw hat and leads a weekly tour that begins at 11 a.m. Wednesdays in Via Amore (formerly Via Gucci) and heads west then east along one of Americas signature shopping streets. He led upward of 40 people during one recent tour that took in such sights as the Everglades Club and architect Addison Mizners villa. Before there was CityPlace or Mizner Park, there was Via Mizner, the archi-tects 1920s vision of a mixed-use devel-opment that combined businesses and residences. The space looks much as it did in the 1920s. Mr. Rose paused at the door to Mizners tower-like home and pointed to a bronze monkey head that decorates the grating around the entrance. Thats Johnnie Brown, Mizners pet monkey,Ž he said. Hes buried over there.Ž He points to a corner of Via Mizner, which includes shops and such restau-rants as Renatos and Pizza al Fresco. A gravestone marks the spot where Johnnie Brown lies in repose near a cor-ner of his former home. In his 1920s hey-day, the spider monkey leapt from vine to vine to ironwork along the balconies and terrace of Mizners home. Next to him lies Our Laddie,Ž the canine com-panion of Rose and Morton Sachs, who bought Mizners home after the archi-tect died penniless in 1933. The Sachs lived there for the next half-century. Such are the stories from Palm Beach.Mr. Rose has history in the area.Part of his family settled in the Glades to farm in the early 20th century before heading east to West Palm Beach. He mused on how air conditioning had transformed the area. Prior to the 1970s, most homeowners lived in the eastern part of Palm Beach County to catch the ocean breezes. But after central air conditioning became readily available, it was easier to buy a new home in such suburbs as Wellington and Royal Palm Beach, than to spend sever-al thousand dollars to update a vintage home. The urban core of such cities as West Palm Beach and Lake Worth began to deteriorate. It was only in the 80s and 90s that preservationists began to appreciate the areas history and architecture and community activists worked to save what remained from the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the 70 minutes or so of Mr. Roses tour, visitors can appreciate why Worth Avenue and Palm Beach became such important social hubs that continue to draw the rich and famous. You can lunch like the rich and famous afterward at Ta-bo, which has a little history of its own „ John F. Kennedy and family were known to fre-quent the restaurant in the days before Palm Beach became the winter home to Camelot during his presidency. Or walk a block south and dine poolside at The Colony Hotel, which was Palm Beach headquarters to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Net proceeds from the $10 tours benefit a local, important charity,Ž according to the Worth Avenue Asso-ciation, which sponsors the weekly events. This years tours benefit the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. But perhaps the greatest beneficiaries of all are the tour participants, who learn how this area became the destina-tion it is today.

MYERS, FL 33917 PARKWIDE WI-FI Executive Women of Palm Beaches announce Leadership Award winners SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYExecutive Women of the Palm Beaches has announced the recipients of their Women in Leadership Award. Twenty-three local women were nominated for the prestigious awards in one of three categories. This annual awards program recognizes exemplary women in Palm Beach County who have demonstrated extraordinary achievements and leader-ship in one of the three sectors: public, private, and volunteer. We receive many nominations this year for women with impressive achievements and contributions to Palm Beach County,Ž said Natalie Alvarez, co-chair of the Women In Leadership Awards Luncheon, in a prepared state-ment. For over 30 years, extraordinary women that work or live in the county have been nominated.Ž The Public Sector honoree is Judith A. Mitchell, chief executive officer of the Raymond F. Kra-vis Center for the Performing Arts. In 1992, Ms. Mitchell became the CEO, and has led the organiza-tion through 22 sea-sons. As CEO, she supervises the opera-tions of the facility. She oversees 103 fulltime and 97 part-time staff members, more than 700 volunteers and directs all functions related to programming, fund-raising and administration of the center. Private Sector honoree is Christine D. Hanley, partner of FordHarrison, LLP. For the past 20 years, Ms. Hanley has been a recognized leader in her profession. Ms. Hanley is a strong advocate of personal and pro-fessional advance-ment for women, and provides whatever support is necessary to her staff and oth-ers to continue their formal education. In addition, she has generously used her expertise to offer pro-bono legal counsel to many organi-zations and not-for-profits throughout Palm Beach County. This years Volunteer Sector honoree is Beverly Perham, founder of Back to Basics. Thirty years ago Ms. Perham rec-ognized the desper-ate need of under-served children in our community and endeavored to fill it. Just before Christmas 1984, using her own money, she bought clothing and toys for 30 children who had just arrived on a boat from Haiti with no possessions. Since then, Ms. Perham has worked to expand the reach of her efforts so as to ensure that, each year, 8,000 children in need, who attend 32 schools throughout Belle Glade, Riviera Beach and other areas, have the basic necessities. The Back to Basics Angel ProgramŽ sup-plies new sneakers, socks, underwear and uniforms, recognizing that proper clothing can help raise students self-esteem, improve attendance, and sup-port academic achievement. The Inspirational Leader Award is presented to The Rev. Pamela A. Cahoon, executive director of C.R.O.S. Ministries. For three decades, the Rev. Cahoon has been a member of the health and human services community in Palm Beach County. She was the first presi-dent of Palm Beach Countys Council on Child Abuse and Neglect, and brought Habitat for Humanity to the county, serving on its first board of directors. She is a found-ing board member of Teen Musical The-ater, chaired the Human Services Coali-tion, and was instrumental in creating the Palm Beach County Food Bank. The Women in Leadership Awards program raises funds to help promising young women in the community pursue their dream of a college education. It also supports the Lois Kwasman Grant for Community Impact. The grant is awarded to an organization whose work makes a profound difference in the lives of girls and young women. The luncheon will be held May 1 at the Kravis Center. Keynote speaker is Valerie Plame, former CIA operations officer and best-selling author of Fair Game and Blowback.Ž Philanthropist Frances Fisher is honorary chair.

Cold calls from life insurance profes-sionals are often met with short, terse ter-minations. Print the words life insurance in a column headline and some readers will automatically turn to another page (if youre still with me, stick around). Such is the unfortunate characterization of a much needed financial product and some of the professionals consulting in this asset class. Why the range of reactions from disinterest to intense dislike? Possibly, as David Jones of David M. Jones & Associates says, because life insurance is the most misunderstood... and poorly explainedƒ financial product.Ž Many in the industry have narrow financial exposure, having brokered a sole asset class of life insurance; some are young in life and experience, having gained entrance through merely passage of a test (on the heels of a 40-hour course); some are career agents, only selling their firms products (unless the insurance applicant is denied by their firms underwriting). Many of the products are complex and, even with clear explanation, they are misunderstood. Many of the assumptions used to create the illus-trationŽ of how the life policy will look/expected to perform in future years have changed. And there are changes by the cli-ent: many a policy was created in earlier years to assure a familys financial security (e.g., basic coverage in case there is pre mature death of the breadwinner) but in later years, the purpose of the life insurance policy changes to become part of a sophis-ticated estate tax minimization plan. It is not for this column to sing life insurances praises for old or young; it is not for this column to explain the ins and outs of all policies. But it is to sound an alarm that policyholders really need to bring their in-force policies to their existing and/or origi-nal underwriting agents to get an up-to-date assessment. The owners of the policies need to intermittently understand how the policy is performing relative to original expecta-tions and illustrations „ and understand how older policies are performing relative to new types of life insurance products previously not available. You should review your policy not just with the issuing agent or companys representative. You should take your policy and the current in force illustrations to other insurance agents, espe-cially those who can offer a multitude of dif-ferent products from different companies. According to Mr. Jones, Many agents owe their duties to their employer if they are a captive agent of that company. Rec-ommending a superior replacement policy with a competing carrier is often forbid-den.Ž How might a comparative assessment of your excising policy help? If you have term insurance, you can visit with your agent to see if a life insurance company is offering term at more competitive rates. It is certainly true that within a 10-year period of time, term rates have dropped as term polices have been repriced to reflect improved longevity of the overall popula-tion. A new policy might reflect those new mortality tables. If you have an older life policy, you absolutely need to understand if the poli-cy is performing in line with the assump-tions made at the time of its original issue. For policies that were issued in the 1980s and 1990s, a lot has changedƒ much to the policy holders detriment,Ž says Mr. Jones. Because interest rates have dropped dramatically in the past 25 years, it would be surprising if an older non-guar-anteed policy is in line with original policy illustrations. These older policies assumed a continuation of then existing higher interest rates to be paid on their large bond portfolio and, in turn, the new policies assumed the insurance company would be able to pay their insureds rates of return on the cash value at rates higher than the guaranteed minimum rate. Assumptions of 8 percent in 1990s were common. Nowa-days, if you want that return, you will have to make a switch to policies that give you some of the upside in the equity market such as an indexed universal life policy.ŽYou want see if a replacement policy would offer a net benefit (after the cost of a replacement policy) based on todays more favorable mortality tables. In the past 20 to 30 years, great strides in medi-cine have appreciably extended mortality for men and women. When insurance was priced 25 years ago, the policy was more expensive as policyholders were thought to die sooner. New policies sold today generally have a more beneficial mortality table. You might think you can keep your old policy and ask the insur-ance company to update the mortality table but thats usually not how it works. The net of it is that replacement of a policy, long held to be unacceptable and costly to the insured, might really save the insured money by taking advantage of new insurance products, exiting poli-cies that will never perform in line with expectations and might soon lapse, and taking advantage of better mortality rates. Older policyholders should not be forlorn; there is possibly some very good news. If theyre still healthy and are able to be medically underwritten and they have built up a large cash value in the older policy, they will have options to replace their policy with a new policy that can still get them to their goal,Ž said Mr. Jones. Many who bought a policy 20 years ago when aged 60 can now find a life insurance policy at age 80 that is less costly and offers better returns.Ž Bottom line: Take the time to make a review of your life insurances a priority. Mr. Jones regularly reviews older policies to determine if a policyholder may secure increased mortality and benefit while reducing premium payments.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Wine’s growing popularity leads to rise in corkscrew collecting BY KIM AND TERRY KOVEL Wine spoils quickly if exposed to the air. It was not until the 18th century that glassblowers were able to make bottles with narrow necks that made airtight storage possible. The best seal for the bottle was a cork, and when the English began to bottle wine in the 1700s they also invented a corkscrew to open the bottle. At first, corks were removed with an existing tool used to clean muskets. But soon other types of openers were invented. Early corkscrews were usually T-shaped devices that pulled the cork. It is said that the first patented corkscrews were made in England in 1795 France in 1828 and the United States in 1860. There are many types of corkscrews. The single-lever corkscrew and the dou-ble-winged-lever corkscrew, patented in 1930, both screwed into the cork. Raising and lowering the lever removed the cork. Hundreds of other clever designs can be found, so collecting is a challenge. By the 1970s, collectors could find books and clubs for corkscrew enthusiasts. A corkscrew collector is called a helixo-phile.Ž Prices have been going up during the past 20 years as the supply of old, unusual corkscrews gets smaller and interest grows in wine and its necessary accessories. A figural brass corkscrew named Hootch-Owl,Ž patented in 1936, sold for $1,725 in February 2014 at a Jef-frey S. Evans auction. Q: I have a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Double R Bar Ranch metal lunch box that pictures Roy on Trigger, Dale Evans waving her hat in greeting, and their dog, Bullet, running alongside. The back and sides look like wood grain and there is a brandŽ on the back. Can you tell me when it was made and what its worth? A: Your lunch box was made by the Ameri-can Thermos Co. in 1953. A nearly identical box with blue or red sides and a wood grain back was made in 1954. It came with a matching ther-mos. It was the first completely lithographed steel lunch box made. The lunch box with thermos sells for $75 to $100 today; the lunch box alone for $50 to $80. Q: I am stumped by a piece of wooden furniture I inherited. It looks like a three-drawer dresser, but the dressers top and the hinged front of the top drawer lift up to reveal a trouser press next to a small storage bin. And the bot-tom drawer front opens on hinges, too. The only mark I can find is Pat. No. 112843.Ž Its impressed on both the press and the back of the dresser. The press can be unscrewed from the dresser. Can you tell me who made it, how old it is and what its worth? A: The patent number refers to a British patent, not an American one. The patent application was filed in England in 1917 by Frank Henry Miles, a cabinet manufacturer, Crown Cabinet Works, Redcross Street, Bristol.Ž The patent was granted on Jan. 31, 1918. It relates to Miless invention of a trouser press & cabinet com-bined.Ž The patent application states that the press could be adapted to any piece of fur-niture as desired or if required made as a separate press.Ž It is likely that your combination trouser press-dresser dates from the late 1910s or early 1920s. The storage bin was meant to be used for small wearing apparelŽ (such as collars, etc.). As a piece of furniture, your press-dresser might sell for $200 to $300. Q : I have a plate that has a stamp on the reverse that reads J.K.W. Decor, Carlsbad, BavariaŽ in an ornate circle of gold. There is a crown above the initials. The plate is 12 inches wide and has a gold rim circling a wide turquoise band with gold decorations. The picture in the center looks like a mirror image of the Jean-Francois Millet painting, The Angelus,Ž showing a farm couple pray-ing over their vegetables. Does this plate have any value? A: The mark on your plate was used by the Josef Kuba Werkstatte, a porce-lain factory founded in Karlsbad, Bavar-ia (now Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic), in 1930. The factory was occupied by German soldiers during World War II. After the war ended in 1945, the factory moved to Wiesau, Bavaria, Germany. After Kuba died, his son took over the business. The company closed in 1989. Many of Josef Kubas plates feature transfer decorations based on famous paintings. The plates were made as inexpensive decorations and sell today for less than $20 each. Tip: Never dip a piece of rhinestone jewelry in water. It will cause damage. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

It sold for $1,725 at a February Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates auction in Mt. Crawford, Va.

A36 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY people walking in, asking for UV tanning beds. We did this because we wanted to be the first ones to present this concept to the community,Ž she says. Eventually, there will be no more UV beds ƒ We wanted to introduce people to the spray-tanning concept early.Ž Brazil has banned tanning beds. Australia has banned tanning beds. A state senator has proposed legislation to ban Florida minors from using tanning beds. The bill has been dubbed the Preventing Youth Cancer Act.Ž Dermatologists say exposure to UV beds increases the risk of skin cancer. Tanning salon owners argue: Burning causes cancer, tanning beds pre-vent burning, thereby tanning beds help prevent skin cancer. Nevertheless, legal and medical forces may compel tanning salons to shift toward spray tans. The death to beds movementAll tanning beds need to disappear,Ž says State Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hol-lywood, who filed the bill to prohibit youths from using tanning beds. If you want to live a healthy life, stay away from these tanning beds, because more likely than not, you will develop melanomas, which are deadly.Ž Married to a dermatologist, Sen. Sobel has been pushing legislation to regulate tanning for years. She says shes motivat-ed to prevent unnecessary deaths.Ž She vows not to give up on the issue. The federal government is lagging in changing the category of these deadly machines,Ž she says. Its changing, but were not there yet.Ž Brazil became the first country to ban UV tanning beds in 2009, shortly after the World Health Organization labeled ultraviolet rays from tanning beds a Class 1 carcinogen. Its like smoking cigarettes,Ž Sen. Sobel says. Theres a direct link between smok-ing and lung cancer. Some people dont get lung cancer, but theyre more likely to. Well, youre more likely to get melanoma if you use tanning beds.Ž Sen. Sobel goes to Golds Gym. She says there are two tanning beds there and members are given a discount to use them. A lot of young girls abuse it,Ž she says. We live in the Sunshine State and we have more tanning salons than McDonalds. Thats ridiculous.Ž Sen. Sobel is referring to a recent report out of the University of Miami. Researchers found Florida has more than 1,260 tanning facilities compared to 868 McDonalds restaurants and 693 CVS pharmacies. The report also found 40 percent of teenage girls use indoor tanning and the inci-dence of melanoma in young women has more than doubled in the last 30 years. Some women may feel a tan makes them look healthy. In dermatology, we consider that the pre-cancerous glow,Ž says Stephanie DePouw, a nurse practi-tioner with Riverchase Dermatology, a Southwest Florida practice with offices from Marco Island to Sarasota. Ms. DePouw cites studies from the American Academy of Dermatology that have found a 59 percent increase in the risk of melanoma in those who have been exposed to UV radiation from indoor tan-ning. We get a lot of woulda, shoulda, coulda, here. Thats a place you never want to visit,Ž Ms. DePouw says. A lot of times, people who have gone to tanning beds say, I wish I would have known betterƒ A melanoma is a serious skin cancer. We have to have those five and 10-year discussions with patients, those grim con-versations surrounding life expectancy.Ž What you do in your 20s and 30s, Ms. DePouw says, can cause decades worth of damage that will catch up with you in your 60s and 70s. She does not want to see anyone go out of business, but she does want to see more focus on skin can-cer prevention.Defending the bedsMaria Athens, owner of Maximum Tan in Naples, sees prevention as the purpose of the tanning business. Tanning is a preventative to burning,Ž she says. Tanning prevents someone from going out in the sun and burning. Burning causes cancer, not tanning. It really is a logical truth.Ž Ms. Athens has been in the tanning business 15 years. She says business just keeps getting busier despite the negative publicity. I have not seen the tanning industry slow down,Ž she says. Even in the recession, we were busy. People were not able to travel, but they still wanted to look good.Ž Ms. Athens sees a lot of travelers. They come in for an eight, nine or 10-minute tan in a controlled tanning environment (for a couple of weeks) before they go on vacation, so theyre not spending half of it in a cold tub,Ž she says. I think weve all burned. Thats the worst thing in the world.Ž Ms. Athens tans three times a week. Her daughter in Gainesville goes to a tan-ning salon. Her daughter in Jacksonville goes to a tanning salon. Her daughter at home says, Mom, Im going to take the car and go tan.Ž Ms. Athens says she would not tell her daughters not to tan. Again, she sees tan-ning as a healthy preventive measure, bet-ter than frying at the beach. I own tanning salons. I wouldnt do anything I am against,Ž says Ms. Athens, who has two salons in New York along with her Naples salon. Lets be honest. How many people can prove they got skin cancer from a tanning salon?Ž she asks. Remember, dermatolo-gists have tanning beds, too.Ž Ms. Athens says her doors welcome many a psoriasis patient who started a tanning-bed regime at a dermatologists office. Airbrush-wise, she spray tans fair and freckled skin types, wedding parties, prom-goers and people who work too much to make it to the beach. Pondering the opposition to tanning salons and tanning beds, she says, I read somewhere that six bad burns in a lifetime means most likely youll get a melanoma. Thats precisely why you should go get a tan (at a salon). I dont understand why people think tanning is bad. Really, its preventative.Ž Q TANNINGFrom page 29ATHENA PONUSHIS/FLORIDA WEEKLYJulia Kenty, proprietor of Sun Spray Tanning & Boutique.

Hes older than I am and some might say wiser. Hes also French, which comes with its own set of rewards. Over coffee, this friend and I compared notes on the people we know in common, and through the course of our conversation we discovered that we both had run into the same young woman, Claire, in different circumstanc-es. I met her three years ago during a stint overseas; my friend was introduced to her just last year in another location. We laughed and shook our heads at the smallness of our world. You know what else is funny?Ž I said. It turns out I was good friends with Claires boyfriend. Before they were dating.Ž My friend looked unsurprised. Oh, yes, I know,Ž he said.You know? But how?ŽHe took a sip of his coffee and gave me an appraising look. She said you had been aggressively flirting with her boyfriend.Ž I sat back, stunned. Aggressively flirting? We had been friends, thats all. And mostly before I knew they were dating. Still, I could feel the color drain from my face. In the coffee shop, my friend shrugged his shoulders in a very Euro-pean way as if to dismiss the entire mat-ter. After all, hes from France, where flirting „ aggressively or otherwise „ is a national pastime. But the accusation stayed with me, not just that night but in the days that followed. To tell you the truth, Im still thinking about it. People say its impossible to be friends with the opposite sex, that if closeness grows between a man and a woman its because there must be some underlying sexual tension. Personally, Im a platonic friends apologist. Why shouldnt men and women appreciate each other and still have no intention of sleeping together? But then I read the relationship advice book Women Men L ove, W omen Men LeaveŽ (no romp in the park, that one) and was startled to learn that one of the basic requirements for a solid relation-ship is that both partners give up their friendships with the opposite sex. It seemed like everyone was against me. Reluctantly, I started to reexamine my situation. What if what I considered friendliness was interpreted as flirta-tion? Could my spirited niceness be seen as flagrant invitation? And then, some time later, in a particularly lucid moment, I recognized my circumstances for what they really were: Of course I had been flirting. I wanted that friend to like me, not just casually but as someone he might consider dating. My niceness was an excuse. Or, more accurately, my own way of flirting. Flooded with this insight, I thought of all my seemingly platonic male friends, men who for one reason or another I have not dated. Were we really friends, in the truest sense of the word? Or were we just orbiting each other, waiting for the moment when our friendship might slip into something more? For a moment, I had the terrible idea that all this time I had been fooling them about my intentions. But then I realized, of course, that they had been fooling me.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7Mr. Collins has read his poems on Gar-rison Keillors A Prairie Home Compan-ionŽ numerous times and has been inter-viewed by Terry Gross on NPRs Fresh Air.Ž Hes even given a TED talk, showing five animated shorts of his poems. Although his poems have been published in The New Yorker and The Paris Review, Mr. Collins is far from being a literary snob; hes also appeared on The Colbert ReportŽ as part of what he describes as a rather vigorousŽ book tour in which he visited 15 or 16 cities in 18 days, with just about every conceivable media stop, including Colbert.Ž Though hes used to speaking to crowds and being on radio and, occasionally, television, the thought of appearing on The Colbert ReportŽ was amazingly nerve wracking,Ž he says, explaining that Stephen Colbert is just very slippery. He has a persona ƒ and he can switch around on you.Ž Publicists from Random House, Mr. Collins publisher, told him to just be himself. Before the show went on the air, Mr. Colbert stopped by the green room. He was very congenial,Ž Mr. Collins says. He said, Im going to be an idiot, and youre just going to be yourself. Allow me some room to be a jackass. And once we sat down at the table, and I was sitting in the hot seat there, it became very entertaining ƒ It all went very well.Ž The two even read one of Mr. Collinss poems, To My Favorite 17-Year-Old High School Girl,Ž alternating verses. He connected me to a huge audience, a much younger demographic, which is good for me „ and good for book sales,Ž he says. The interview, which can be seen on YouTube, was part of his book tour for Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems,Ž Mr. Collins 10th and most recent collec-tion of poetry.Inspiration of youthLike many teens, Mr. Collins wrote poetry when he was in high school. I look back and wince at the whole thing,Ž he says of his fledgling poems. I didnt publish until I was in my 40s, and didnt take off until my 50s.Ž His career, he adds, was as a professor of literature. Like most young poets, he started out by imitating poets he admired, including Wal-lace Stevens and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Instead of being inspired by these fellow poets, I was writing in a parody of their work, a slavish imitation,Ž he says. I think in that period, I was learning some-thing about language, just by writing. Thats how you learn to write, by writing.Ž His early poems were published in Rolling Stone magazine. It paid $35 a poem, and back then a pack of cigarettes was a dollar, so you could buy 35 packs of ciga-rettes,Ž he says. It wasnt until he was in this 30s that he found a voice that expressed his sensibili-ties, Mr. Collins says. Then it took anoth-er five or so years until I was published.Ž For a while, he published books with the University of Pittsburgh Press. He made the switch to Random House, a big-ger, more commercial publishing house, when they made him an offer he couldnt refuse: a six-figure advance for a three-book deal, which is unheard of for poetry. Random House promoted his books and sent him on multi-city tours. He gave readings all over, often selling out venues, which one time led The New York Times to claim he caused the literary equivalent of Beatlemania.Ž In 2001, Mr. Collins was named Poet Laureate of the United States, a position he held for two terms, through 2003. Dur-ing his tenure, he initiated the Poetry 180 project, which encouraged high school students to read a poem a day for the 180 days of the academic year. The project branched out into two books: Poetry 180: A Turning Back to PoetryŽ and 180 More: Extraordinary Poems for Every Day.Ž The anthologies, he says, were for people who gave up on poetry after school, who hadnt kept up with it and wanted to get back into it, who were curious about where poetry has gone since theyd stopped reading it in school. If you picked up the 180 anthologies, you have 180 poets there, and if you liked one of them, you could look up their work. It was a gateway anthology.Ž He also recorded poems for Delta Airlines that people could listen to while they flew. The poems, his own and others, would revolve around one subject, such as animals, nature or l ove, and would be interspersed with jazz.An off-kilter sensibilityMr. Collins writes poetry that appeals to people who think they dont like poetry. In his poem Cheerios,Ž he writes about discovering hes older than the breakfast cereal. In Hell,Ž he writes: I have a feel-ing that it is much worse/than shopping for a mattress in a mall.Ž In My Num-ber,Ž he wonders hopefully: Is Death miles away from this house/reaching for a widow in Cincinnati/or breathing down the neck of a lost hiker/in British Colum-bia?Ž His poems are at once whimsical and realistic, droll and full of surprise. Theyre filled with dogs, snow, mice, jazz, books and death. Theyre playful.For example, Looking for a Friend in a Crowd of Arriving Passengers: A Son-net,Ž says, for the first 13 lines, Not John Whalen,Ž and concludes, with relief, with John WhalenŽ as the 14th line. Its a sly and clever recreation of waiting for a friend at an airport. Even his book titles, which come from his poems, display his off-kilter sensi-bility: Horoscopes for the Dead,Ž The Trouble with Poetry,Ž Undressing Emily Dickinson,Ž Picnic, Lightning.Ž In an interview with The Paris Review, Mr. Collins said, I want to start in a very familiar place and end up in a strange placeŽ in his poetry. In his poem Introduction to Poetry,Ž he writes: I ask them to take a poem/and hold it up to the light/like a color slide/or press an ear against its hive.Ž Unfor-tunately, the students are both tone deaf and colorblind. They dont want to swim in the poem but instead feel they need to decode it. But all they want to do/is tie the poem to a chair with rope/and torture a confes-sion out of it./They begin beating it with a hose/to find out what it really means,Ž the poem concludes. Mr. Collins believes many intelligent, well-educated people are afraid of poetry, something he attributes to the way its taught in school. They begin to think of poetry as a subject in school „ like trigo-nometry or astronomy or something,Ž he says. People think poetry is even less useful than trigonometry. And we pretty much know we didnt need trigonometry after we got out of school,Ž he adds. To those who think poetry is too hard to understand, Mr. Collins says it becomes less difficult the more you read it. Read-ing prose does not prepare us, in any way, for reading poetry,Ž he says. Its a differ-ent skill set, a different set of awareness. It involves a different language awareness and language process.Ž But, he admits, Some poetry is impenetrable. Im not interested in reading that either ƒ To me, some poetry is too dif-ficult and some is too easy. I like poetry thats making reasonable demands on my attention.Ž Hes been quoted as saying that 83 percent of poetry isnt very good and says that, as poet laureate, I didnt want to go out and bang the drum for poetry and say we should read more, because a lot of it is boring.Ž Though his poems are often humorous, theyre not light verse, like Ogden Nashs poems. I actually like Ogden Nash,Ž he says. The difference is, with Ogden, the poem has to be funny all the way through. It starts out funny, continues funny and ends funny, so pretty much every line is humorous. The difference between that and using humor in a more serious way is that humor is used as a door into something more serious, a way of breaking down the readers resistance. A poem can start very funny and turn serious; the humor in the beginning is a seductive device to bring readers in, before the poem turns more dark, more complex, or deeper in some way. And the opposite is true. A poem can start serious and then suddenly stop taking itself very seriously and end on a lighter note. In that case, youre deploy-ing humor. Ogden Nash is the humorist throughout.Ž Humor is epistemological, he says, a way of looking at life. I dont sit down and try to be funny,Ž he says. I just pretend to see things from odd angles. Its pretty fruitless to sit down and try to be funny, to make humor a goal, to sit down and be very serious about being funny. Unless youre naturally funny, I dont think its going to hold up on the page.Ž For him, humor is a strategy rather than an end in itself. Im not there to amuse the reader,Ž Mr. Collins says. Im there to explore some-thing. And if humor is one part of the exploration, thats all the better.Ž Q POETFrom page 1 SUZANNAH GILMAN / COURTESY PHOTOBilly Collins writes poetry for the masses. “Some poetry is impenetrable. I’m not interested in reading that either … To me, some poetry is too difficult and some is too easy. I like poetry that’s making reasonable demands on my attention.” — Billy Collins, poet

Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach announces 2015 season performers SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Chamber Music Society of Palm Beach has announced that a trio from the Metropolitan Opera, as well as the Emerson String Quartet, will perform as part of the 2015 season. The performance by Susanna Phillips, soprano; Julie Landsman, French horn; and Brian Zeger, piano, all from the Metro-politan Opera, will feature Schuberts Auf Dem StromŽ on January 6. The Emer-son String Quartets performance will feature Beethovens String Quartet, Op. 127Ž on April 2. The two concerts in the 2014-2015 season will again be held at Mar-a-Lago, 1100 S. Ocean Blvd. We are delighted to present some of the top artists in the world at the Cham-ber Music Societys performances. And were thrilled to announce that the per-formances will again be in the exquisite white and gold ballroom at Mar-a-Lago. We expect 2015 to be a very exciting sec-ond season,Ž Vicki Kellogg, co-founder of the Society, said in a prepared state-ment. Concert evenings begin with a cocktail party at 6 p.m., the performance at 7:00 p.m. There are no intermissions and concerts conclude at about 8:15 p.m. For more information and to receive an invitation to the concert series, call 379-6773 or visitcmspb.org. Heres a look at the artists:Alabama-born soprano Susanna Phillips, recipient of The Metropolitan Operas 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, continues to establish herself as one of todays most sought-after singing actors and recitalists. Starring roles with the Metropolitan Opera include Fiordiligi in Cos fan t utte,Ž Ros alinde in a new staging of Strausss Die FledermausŽ as part of the annual New Years Eve gala, and Musetta in La Bohme.Ž Pianist Brian Zeger has built an important career not only as a pianist, appearing in distinguished concert ven-ues throughout the United States and Europe, but also as an ensemble per-former par excellence, radio broadcast-er, artistic administrator and educator. During his extensive concert career, Mr. Zeger has collaborated with many of the worlds top singers. In addition to his distinguished concert career, he also serves as artistic director of the Vocal Arts Department at The Juilliard School and the execu-tive director of the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artists Development Program, and until recently served as the director of the vocal program at the Steans Institute at the Ravinia Fes-tival. He has been on the faculties of the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, the Chautauqua Institute, the Mannes College of Music and the Peabody Conservatory and has given master classes for numerous institu-tions, including The Guildhall School of Music in London, Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, Tanglewood Music Center and the Marilyn Horne Foundation. Julie Landsman is one of the most distinguished performers and teachers of our time. She held the position of Prin-cipal Horn of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 25 years until her retire-ment in 2010. She now enjoys a wide variety of musical activities, including performances with the Orpheus Cham-ber Orchestra, of which she is the new-est member. A former member of the Houston Symphony, Ms. Landsman has per-formed as a guest artist with the Mainly Mozart Festival Orchestra in San Diego, Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. She has also performed as a chamber musician at many important festivals and concert series. The Emerson String Quartet stands apart in the history of string quartets with an unparalleled list of achieve-ments over three decades: more than 30 acclaimed recordings, nine Gram-mys (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, Musical Americas Ensemble of the YearŽ, and collabora-tions with many of the greatest artists of our time. Cellist Paul Watkins joined the quartet in May 2013. Mr. Watkins is known as a distinguished soloist, award-win-ning conductor, and dedicated chamber musician. The program underscores the Chamber Music Societys mission: to sponsor performances and educational programs of the highest artistic merit, to promote a greater understanding and apprecia-tion of chamber music, and to enhance the cultural life of Palm Beach.

Brunch 8am 2pm ! Celebrity has become a 21st century synonym for the brand of fame unearned except by outrageous behav-ior or uncommon beauty, not necessar-ily by virtues or accomplishments. But Claudia Shears 2000 play Dirty Blonde,Ž about provocateur Mae West and her fans, sees celebrity as a more complex symbiosis. It traps a star as much as it rewards her, and manufactured personas inspire adoring acolytes to change their own lives. The Plaza Theatres production is similarly a conundrum of contradic-tion „ the cast delivers appealing per-formances, but the play never captures the sex symbols blissful bawdiness and nova-like life force that has invigorated other editions. This is strange since the dual roles of Mae West and one of her present day fans are portrayed by the wonderful Margot Moreland who, indeed, played the role to critical and popular acclaim in GableStages production in 2003. And she is ably supported by Ken Clement as another West fan (among other roles) and Terry M. Cain in a gallery of parts such as Wests jettisoned husband. The effort led by director Beverly Blanchette isnt poorly executed, but the vicarious thrill of being in the presence of a truly uninhibited, nose-thumbing iconoclast is simply missing. Ms. Shear constructed Dirty BlondeŽ as vaudeville-like scenes that bounce forward and back in time on two planes that are interlaced. One plane depicts West in anecdotal scenes tracing the arc of her life. She starts as a struggling song-and-dance woman, later becomes an actress/play-wright/director of stage and film com-edies that celebrate sex with double entendres that gleefully run over moral codes like a streamroller. Finally, in semi-retirement, she is encased in a painful parody of her invented persona that now possesses her life 24/7. The second track depicts two present day fans who are obsessed with Wests verve and nerve: Jo, a temp and a would-be actress, and Charlie who supervises the public librarys film collection. Both are lonely, wounded people too afraid to take an emotional risk by exposing their inner selves. Once they meet at Wests grave on her birthday, their mutual worship of West creates a prickly friendship. Over the course of the play, they recognize that Wests greatest virtues were her pride and her fearlessness, qualities that encourage them to open themselves up. Ironically, Ms. Shear underscores, for all Wests courage in defying censors and attempts to control her, she was never able to give her heart completely to anyone. While not an outstanding script, Ms. Shear and original director James Lap-ine invented some imaginative moments of theatrical staging. In one, Ms. Moreland is center stage donning Wests outrageously come-hither scarlet gown and topped with an outrageously outlandish feathered hat. But, in fact, it is two scenes occurring simultaneously. On one side of the stage is Mr. Cain as Wests husband encouraging West to becomeŽ the persona that would define her life; on the other side of the stage, Charlie is encouraging Jo to don the same costume which will, in fact, unleash her inner self. Another strong series of scenes are flashbacks depicting when Charlie wrangled visits to the decrepit star whose blond hair had become a plati-num wig and who had become a sad lampoon of the creature she created „ forced to live or choosing to live the artificial role full-time. But throughout this production, that blazing sexuality, that incandescent insolence that West exuded her entire life only glows like a banked fire. Further, the audience gets lost in the early scenes as Ms. Shear sends the narrative caroming in space and time and even switching point of view: the nascent Mae West one moment, the elderly icon the next; Jo speaking direct-ly to the audience breaking the fourth wall, Jo and Charlie in book scenes with the fourth wall restored. Still, Ms. Moreland deftly slips on West like a second skin without trying to do a drag show impersonation. She wriggles and coos and dances and sings a few songs. One strength of her per-formance is that her Mae West always comes across as a real person, even when Mae West is portraying Mae West.Ž She also skillfully adopts different voices for West at different ages ranging from a youthful tentative voice when she is still sculpting her creation to the full-out Diamond Lil sound at age 87. Ms. Moreland does have a fine topspin for Wests devastating repartee. When one man asks, Miss West, Ive heard a great deal about you,Ž Moreland purrs, Yeah, honey, but you cant prove a thing.Ž Still, for a show about a woman who brought suggestive flirting to an art form, Dirty BlondeŽ doesnt quite seduce.

Answer: When it obviously does not mean what it says. For example, take this case where South gets to four spades on the bid-ding shown. It is not clear whether West should lead the ace of hearts, the suit his partner bid, or make the more aggressive lead of a diamond, hoping to get a diamond ruff. Be that as it may, West fortunately elected to lead a diamond. Had he led the ace of hearts instead, declarer would have fin-ished with an overtrick. East won the diamond lead with the jack and continued with the ace and king. It was on the third round of diamonds that West made a most unusu-al play „ he discarded the ace of hearts! Under the circumstances, there was no way East could construe this play as a signal for him to lead a heart next. Rather, East reasoned that his partner was trying to stop him from shifting to a heart. So East continued with a fourth round of diamonds, and Wests jack of trumps became the setting trick. Observe that if East had shifted to a heart instead of leading another diamond, which he very well might have done without Wests extraordinary dis-card, declarer would have had no prob-lem scoring the rest of the tricks. But West had recognized that a heart shift by East could easily prove fatal, and he headed off a potential disaster by mak-ing the most dramatic discard he could find. Q PUZZLE ANSWERS

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

Advertorial This article appeared in Florida Weekly on 10/11/2012. +++ Is it worth $10? yesClearly darker in tone and more dramatically ambitious than any film thus far from Marvel Studios, Captain America: The Winter SoldierŽ is a resounding suc-cess. The action scenes register with the power of a Hulk smash (no, he doesnt cameo), and the story is surprisingly tense as it tackles thought-provok-ing questions in the midst of dynamic pop-corn entertain-ment. Taking its cue from The Dark KnightŽ (2008) in terms of pulse-pounding action (note the truck that flips over its front end), music thats tense and brooding and a narrative that prompts its protagonist to question his motivations, The Winter SoldierŽ keeps the Marvel Cinematic Uni-verses (which includes the Hulk, Thor and Iron Man) winning streak zestfully alive. Living in Washington D.C., Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans), continues to fight for S.H.I.E.L.D. and its leader, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Rogers is disheartened, though, by the construction of three heli-carriers, which Fury is completing in cooperation with Secretary of Defense Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). Fury maintains that with the heli-carriers, potential attacks can be neutralized before they happen, while Rogers is understandably concerned that perceived threats could be erroneous and innocents could be hurt. Hes so con-cerned, in fact, that he considers quitting altogether. This is the military-industrial complex and foreign diplomacy impacting a superhero tale, which is an unexpect-ed moral/ethical dilemma for a movie in which zero depth is expected. Once S.H.I.E.L.D. is compromised, Rogers is forced to work with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), to try to save the world. Later, Rogers friend Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) dons some wings to become the Falcon, which Marvel Comics readers will appreciate. The opposition is whoever sabotaged S.H.I.E.L.D. and a Russian assas-sin named The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). After Captain America: The First AvengerŽ (2011) and The AvengersŽ (2012), this is the third time the good cap-tain has played a prominent role in a fea-ture, so it would not be a surprise if things went a bit stale. This is where directors Joe and Anthony Russo and writers Christo-pher Markus and Stephen McFeely really shine: Though we never truly doubt that Steve will keep fighting, the circumstances that lead to his consternation allow The Winter SoldierŽ to work well in terms of both dramatic tension and action/enter-tainment „ something that doesnt always happen in big-budget, effects-driven super-hero movies (ahem, Man of SteelŽ). Speaking of the action, its fantastic. Among the highlights are Fury in a tense car chase, Captain America taking down a plane with his shield, multiple fights and escapes from The Winter Soldier and a high-impact, high-flying finale. No new ground is broken here, but credit is deserved for a job very well done. Captain America: The Winter SoldierŽ does what it needs to do: It improves in every way on its 2011 predecessor, and more importantly, it keeps the Marvel Cin-ematic Universe in fine form, which has the byproduct of keeping audiences eager-ly awaiting its next project (see below).

B16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSLike a gourmet meal, ‘Murder with Ganache’ will leave you wanting moreQ Murder with GanacheŽ by Lucy Burdette. Obsidian. 320 pages. Mass mar-ket paperback $7.99. This fourth entry in the Key West Food Crit-ic Mystery Series is a bit darker than the first three. Its just as enjoy-able, but not so much in a laugh-out-loud way. Restaurant critic Hayley Snow, an enchanting young woman striving to prove herself as an independent adult in her adopted home town, has a lot of bowling pins in the air at once. Can she juggle them all successfully? Just when she needs some relief from the deadline pressures of her assignments with Key Zest Magazine, Hayley gets additional assignments, including one on the Heming-way cats, with almost immediate due dates. What has complicated her life is her agreement to manage her friend Connies wedding. Its just around the corner, and that means relatives and friends are piling into town and need Hayleys attention. Among the newly arrived are Hayleys mother Janet and Janets beau, Sam; Hayleys father and his second wife, Allison; and Allisons teenage son from her first marriage, 15-year-old Rory, whose brooding teenage angst is on display. Is it just that he doesnt want to be there? Or is something else bothering him? Before we know what has Rory in such a distressed state, he disappears into Key Wests spring break scene. After frantic searching by Hayley, the other relatives and the police, Rory is discovered beaten up and unconscious. Worse, he is found to be the last person to have been seen with a teenage girl who has turned up dead. Comatose Rory is soon the prime suspect in a murder case. When he regains consciousness, he cannot seem to remember much about what hap-pened. Or is he just hiding the truth? Stepsister Hayley cannot keep from leading her own investigation, often risking the wrath of the law enforcement professionals. Rorys predicament soon brings his irascible bully of a father onto the scene. One can readily understand how the tug of war between this man and his ex-wife Allison shaped Rorys upbringing. Its amazing that Rory can function at all. Suddenly, the wedding is called off. A confrontation between Connies father, who unexpectedly shows up (even though they had been estranged), and her fianc Ray leads to a meltdown of the lovers relationship. Rays parents, as well as all the other family members, are perplexed by the situation, but Ray wont talk and Connie feels betrayed and lost. Now Hayley has even more to worry about. Lucy Burdette gives depth to this book by dissecting the modern family in all its divorce, remarry, reshape, share kids, make nice, stay enraged, give up, try again glory and gloom. Hayleys caring yet determined nature often provides the healing salve that lowers the anxiety level and heals torn relationships. The authors background as a clinical psychologist clearly enriches her handling of this material. The constant charms in the Key West Food Critic Mystery books are, as one might expect, the attention to Key West and the attention to food „ as nourishment, delight, art, business and social lubricant. As Hayleys endeavors have her on and off her motor scooter, zipping all over the island, we become familiar with its neighborhoods, establishments and institutions. We explore the Key West lifestyle, representa-tive character types, its paradisiacal climate and even the friction that can rough up the islands laid back cultural atmosphere. Haley is still a short-time resident of the island, and as we watch her internalize its nuanced flavors, we absorb them for ourselves. Because writing about food „ and the establishments that prepare and serve it „ is Hayleys occupation, readers learn a lot about that as well. The author takes readers into a gastronomical world that keeps them alternately satisfied and hungry. One special feature of the books in this series is the appen-dix of mouth-watering recipes with which each concludes. Spritely and suspenseful, Murder with GanacheŽ has a unique piquancy. Like a gourmet meal, it will leave you wanting more..

BEACH READING‘The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results’ By Gary Keller and Jay Papasan(Bard Press, $24.95)REVIEWED BY MOLLY FORD If your day-to-day life is feeling like a treadmill where everything is urgent but nothing gets done, bestselling authors Gary Keller and Jay Papasan have a solution for you. It is called the one thingŽ: the idea that you need to pause, evaluate your end goal, and then focus only on the one thingŽ that will move you toward that goal, working on it until the task is complete „ whether it takes min-utes or months. In the wake of advice books that focus on multitasking as a pro-ductivity solution, this viewpoint is a breath of fresh air. More impor-tantly, according to the authors, this one thingŽ method is how extraordinary results are best achieved, both in todays society and throughout history. But though the solution is simple in theory, it can be difficult to put into practice. Thats where the authors guidance is crucial. The book promises that by focusing on one thing, relentlessly, we can turn a goal into an accomplish-ment. With advice on how to define, choose, modify and measure the results of pursuing the one thing, we can move closer and closer to achieving our most important goal. While the book is informative, its not just a step-by-step manual on productivity. Broken into short chapters that start with motivational quotes, the authors mix of case studies and their own experiences running successful ventures offer entertainment as well as guidance. This is more than just study of productivity concepts, its a practical how-to guide for blocking out mundane distractions and managing time in everyday life. Do you want to accomplish that big goal you have been try-ing to complete for years? This is your read. Q „ For more reviews by Molly Ford, visit SmartPrettyandAwkward.com.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B23 The Dish: Chicken with Spicy Khmer Sauce The Place: Joy Noodles & Asian Cui sine, 2200 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 655-5212 or joynoodles.net The Price: $9.95 The Details: This dish comes only one way — with heat, and that’s how we like it. The restaurant sauts tender bits of chicken with a mixture of spices and herbs that include cardamom, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, galangal, garlic and chili. Galangal, as we learned, is a member of the ginger family. The sauce had the right tang, and broccoli, peppers, carrots and eda mame were cooked until al dente. It was perfect with a bottle of Lucky Buddha beer. The pad Thai ($12.95) also hit the spot at this pan-Asian restaurant. Q — Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Donald Young isn’t new to the kitch ens of Palm Beach County. Indeed, as executive chef at PGA National Resort and Spa, you could say he’s at home here — and bringing a wealth of experi ence with him. He’s worked with well-known chefs at big name spots — such as the early Bra zilian Court with David Woodward, and the Ocean Grand, which preceded the Four Seasons, with Robin Haas, its orig inal Mango Gang chef. He also worked there with Hubert Desmarais, who took it over and made a name for the ocean front resort. He’s been at Bice, the Boca Raton Resort and the Gulfstream Bath and Tennis Club. He even tried his hand at his own restaurant, opening Someplace in Lake Park. “It was going well, but the economy took a downturn,” he said. “It was just bad timing on my part.” The restaurant closed two years ago. Though he says he enjoyed wearing the many hats a chef/restaurant owner has, he’d probably not open another one. “I enjoyed meeting with sales people, coming up with creative menus and I love to have a million different things going at once,” he said. “It’s manage able.” Mr. Young credits the training he got at Johnson & Wales, at a time when culinary schools were not as hungry for students as today and gave the students a better picture of reality they’d face when graduating. “When I went to culinary school in ’82, I was given great advice that stuck with me. My first instructor on the first day says to the class, ‘You will work when everybody else is off — nights, weekends and holidays. You will work hard and wash dishes and peel potatoes. You have to have a passion for this busi ness — I want to tell you that now.’ The next day, there were five or six students who never came back.” Faced with salaries of average kitchen workers that were barely $8 an hour back then, many also left after realizing they were not executive chef material and that there were no TV shows look ing for them, either, he said. “You had to get a letter of recommen dation from an established restaurant or hotel — they had that weeding-out pro cess. There’s nothing like that now. “Kids are spending close to a hun dred grand to go to culinary school for two years. They make $12 an hour when they get out — if they’re lucky. The debt they carry is enormous.” Still, he wouldn’t put down a culinary education. “If you have it in you, it’s great. I think that it takes a lot of pas sion and pride in your work. But these kids are being inundated with reality shows. It’s not about the real kitchens.” Ultimately, his work at Chauncey’s in the Boca Raton Resort, and the resort kitchen prepared him for the experience needed to run a place like the PGA. Here, he oversees a kitchen staff of 75 cooks, five chefs and 90 stewards. “If you can work there (at the Boca Raton Resort), you can work anywhere. You have to be very strong, and multi task a hundredfold,” he said. PGA National is a resort and spa with several dining venues, and host to one of the largest golf tournaments in the U.S. He credits his team with its suc cess. “I have a great team up here and great support. I’m free to come up with ideas and execute them. We have a lot of different things, too — a private mem ber’s club where we’re trying to theme menus. We’re in the process of rework ing the wine list — hoping to earn the Wine Spectator award again. Someone before me had the lame-brained idea to cut the wine menu.” A new management team is in place and things are changing — which can be tricky, but Mr. Young said he’s han dling it with his own leadership meth ods. “I’m in a new position as executive chef. I come in for three months and just observe. I don’t come in like a bull in a china shop. You have to gain the respect and trust of your staff. That’s what I did — I identified the ones who are strong people and those who need ed more coaching. “When I got here, some people had been put into place as chefs who shouldn’t have been. I have good people now, a tight group of chefs and we work well together. We have a new food and beverage director — he’s from Boston, too, and we’ve been observing together.” Along with a new food truck, which he says opens up a whole new facet for cooking and serving guests at the resort and off site for charity events, he’s working on several special food events that bring in guests and diners. “The 3rd annual Burger Bash is com ing up on Father’s Day weekend. This year, we’re tenting it and adding more misters.” The extreme heat for the numerous area chefs working over hot grills is problematic, he admits. “I went through six chef’s jackets that day.” In mid-August, the resort hosts the Sweet Treat Weekend. “This year, we’ll attempt to assemble the world’s largest cupcake. Last year, we made the world’s largest sundae — it’s in the Guinness Book of World Records — it was 1249 feet long. Definitely the biggest thing I’ve ever done! Amazingly, we put it together in 17 minutes.” The Honda Classic golf tournament, held in March, is the mac daddy of all the resort events, however. “Through the course of four days, we had 300,000 people come through here. We did about $18,000 a day at our golf snack bar, Bar 91. That’s big numbers when you’re talking about Cobb salads and things like that. Lines at the i-Bar were 10 deep. It was very happening.” It’s growing every year, and this year’s field of young, top golf stars helped bring in a younger crowd, he said. A golf lover himself, he found the finish especially breathtaking. “With Rory Mcllroy and Russell Henley at the end — it was crazy and really neat.” He’s now getting ready for an Orthodox Passover event where the whole hotel is taken over by Passover observers for the eight days of the holi day. “My kitchen will be dismantled and I’ll take out all my products and find a place to put it. The whole kitchen will be kashered and so on. Once it’s over, I’ll have 10 hours to change everything back to accommodate an event for 250. This year, it’s going to be a challenge.” It’s been a particularly busy season all around, he said. “I may slow down after Mother’s Day. Seriously, it’s a lot of fun. I enjoy it.” Does he ever get a chance to cook? “Oh, yeah. I’ll jump in if the chefs get too busy. You have to lead by example — get dirty, jump on the line when you’re needed. I’d be bored if I had to sit in my office and crunch numbers all the time. “I still spend enough time with a knife in my hand. The bottom line — it’s my play. That’s how I decompress. When I’m having a rough day, I’ll go up and break down a side of beef, and braise 200 pounds of short ribs or make a big pot of soup. “Maybe right after this interview.”Name: Donald Young Age: 50 Original Hometown: Boston Restaurant: PGA National Resort and Spa, executive chef Mission: “To be the best golf and spa resort on the East Coast.” Cuisine: Contemporary American Training: “Johnson and Wales Col lege, Providence, R.I., class of ’84.” What’s your footwear of choice in the kitchen? “Clogs, by Klogs.” Favorite guilty indulgence food? “Pizza.” What advice would you give some one who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? “Make sure you have a passion for food and the business.
