The company did not reveal the number of employees losing their jobs but did say sh utt ering the low-performing stores is a cost-cutting measure to bol-ster anemic earnings. Other belt-tight-ening includes cost reductions on about a 1,000 products in hopes customer traf-fic will increase. The companys reboot did not make the front page of anybodys business section but it drew notice nonetheless because it is symptomatic of a deeper problem with the nations economic recovery. Family Dollar Stores cater to customers for whom stretching a dollar is the big reason people go there to shop. It is their strategy to overcome their last bottom dollar blues. Twenty bucks stocks a meager pantry or buys school supplies for the kids. You can find household cleaners, hair and beauty products, clothing, shoes, pet food, canned goods, home dcor, and things you indulge in buying because even you can afford them. It is a no-frills shopping experience.If you have not shopped at a Family Dollar, or similar stores, I am guessing it is because of multiple reasons: You are not a single parent and not unemployed. You do not work for minimum wage. You do not live on Social Security, in a coal camp or a backwater town. You are not a renter in any one of the millions of inner city, low-income neighborhoods like those in any number of counties in Florida. These stores serve a customer for whom shopping at Wal-Mart is, by com-parison, a big outing to Disney World: It does not happen often and it is memo-rable when it does. The people who read the tea leaves say the weak earnings report of Family Dollar is a further sign of the chasm opening between those who are ben-efiting from an improved economy and those who are left behind. The very rich are growing richer because those at the highest rungs of the economic ladder have benefited disproportionately from the economic bounce-back. Income inequality is a huge and growing divide. The 1 percent is living high on Easy Street and the other 99 percent is trying to hang on to a modest standard of living on the other side of the tracks. It is stark state of affairs no matter how you gild it and in Florida, the trend is especially alarming because the real income of ordinary Floridians is actually declining, and has been for a long time. Robert Trigaux, the business columnist for the Tampa Bay Times, writes in a recent article, From 1979 to 2011 in the Sunshine State, the top 1 percent enjoyed a hefty 116 percent gain in aver-age income to $1.14 million. Over the same 32-year period, the rest of Florida „ the bottom 99 percentŽ „ saw their average income drop 8 percent to $35,393.Ž He notes the economic danger inherent in a state economy where the vast majority of Floridians are actually los-ing income while the rich are getting even richer; and the economic disparities continue to widen, a trend line that has profound, long-term consequences „ none of them good „ for the economy of our state. There is little evidence that our states policy leaders are paying atten-tion. Their regard of the economic reali-ties faced by millions of poor and work-ing families would be characterized as willful ignorance were it not for the fact this past legislative session demon-strates they actually do know, and they absolutely dont care. The disdain with which the majority of state lawmakers regard the economic plight of millions of families is breathtaking. To hear them tell it, redress of income inequality is a poison pill to the states prosperity; and the social safety net only benefits drug addicts, illegals, the shiftless, lazy, looking-for-a-handout types who have no work ethic, and are uneducated, unskilled, and consist of rip-off-artists who cheat the system, etc. etc., etc. Of course, they dont mean you; they mean the other stereotypical, low-lifes they cite as justification for treating every person in need or struggling to make a living as unworthy of the states help or compassion. With nary a pang of guilt, millions of the states most vulnerable citizens are denied affordable healthcare, pro-tection against wage theft, an increase in minimum wage, access to afford-able housing, increased food security and unemployment benefits sufficient to provide a safety net for the long-term unemployed. You would think it a crime to rob people of their hope, dignity, and a decent standard of living when it is greed rather than abundance that is the issue. Until we convince lawmakers otherwise, it isnt malfeasance; its just a sorry shame.

One-year mailed subscriptions: $31.95 in-county $52.95 in-state $59.95 out-of-state Race matters: Resegregation and the rollback of affirmative action I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.Ž So proclaimed Alabama Gov. George Wal-lace more than a half-century ago. His proudly racist rhetoric was matched by heinous actions: Murders, lynchings and systemic violence, often endorsed or organized by state and local gov-ernments, were inflicted on African-Americans and their allies struggling for civil rights. Despite that, those fighting for equality prevailed. Among the suc-cesses were the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, affirma-tive action and court-ordered integra-tion of schools. But with this weeks U.S. Supreme Court decision support-ing Michigans ban against affirmative action in state university admissions, and with the increasing resegregation of schools, it seems like Wallaces dream of segregation foreverŽ may be alive and all too well. Nikole Hannah-Jones is an investigative journalist with the nonprofit news organization ProPublica, which has just published her yearlong, 9,000-word piece on the resegregation of public schools in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This remarkable report, Segregation Now,Ž notes that In Tuscaloosa today, nearly one in three black students attends a school that looks as if Brown v. Board of Education never happened.Ž The Brown decision, issued in May of 1954, cov-ered several pending court cases (all organized by the NAACP) challenging school segregation. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren authored the unanimous decision, writing, We con-clude that in the field of public educa-tion the doctrine of separate but equal has no place. Separate educational facil-ities are inherently unequal.Ž Hannah-Jones tells the history of school desegregation in Tuscaloosa through the lens of three generations of the Dent family. James Dent grew up in Jim Crow Alabama, never shar-ing a classroom with a white student. His daughter, Melissa, first went to an integrated middle school in 1980. It had taken decades for Tuscaloosa to imple-ment desegregation, and then only by additional court orders. The citys two high schools were consolidated into one, Central High, which became a state powerhouse of excellence, both aca-demic and athletic. Melissa went on to become the first in her familys history to graduate from college. But this golden era of desegregation was short-lived. Tuscaloosa has become one of the most rapidly reseg-regating school districts in the coun-try,Ž Hannah-Jones explained on our Democracy Now!Ž news hour. In 2000, when a federal judge released Tuscaloo-sa from its court order, the school board immediately voted to split up Central [High School]. Because of fears of white flight ... they created three high schools „ two integrated and one that was entirely black.Ž Here is her key finding: a new kind of segregation. While there are no whites onlyŽ schools in Tusca-loosa, as there were up until 1979, there is now a struggling blacks onlyŽ school „ Central High. The irony is that Cen-tral High School is actually located in an integrated neighborhood, but the white students right across the street from the school are gerrymandered into a district to go to an integrated school, and that Central was created as a black school by the intentional drawing of district lines.Ž The problem is not limited to the Deep South. UCLAs Civil Rights Proj-ect has been tracking national trends. Surprisingly, it found that New York has the most segregated schools in the country. ... Heavily impacting these state rankings is New York City, home to the largest and one of the most segregated public school systems in the nation.Ž The UCLA report repeatedly uses a term that is now common in academic circles studying resegregation: apart-heid schoolsŽ „ those schools with less than 1 percent white student enrollment. The report continues, Across New York City, 73 percent of charters were consid-ered apartheid schools and 90 percent were intensely segregated (less than 10 percent white enrollment) schools in 2010.Ž This weeks Supreme Court decision will surely continue the trend of reseg-regation from high schools into col-leges. The 6-2 vote upheld the Michigan ban on race-based affirmative action in state university admissions. Chief Jus-tice John Roberts expressed his feelings about race in 2007, when he controver-sially said, The way to stop discrimina-tion on the basis of race is to stop dis-criminating on the basis of race.Ž Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in her dissent from the majority this week, wrote, My col-leagues are of the view that we should leave race out of the picture entirely and let the voters sort it out. ... It is a senti-ment out of touch with reality.Ž The reality is, racial discrimination and segregation go hand in hand. Rac-ism may not boom from a governors podium as it did in 1963 with George Wallace, but a racially divided America can never be equal. 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. OPINION h i s t o u amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The stupid hounding of Condi Rice If Condoleezza Rice were as selfpitying and politically crass as Attor-ney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility to her. Rices speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the Internet company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally iso-lated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. Shes such a disreputable figure that shes on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Shes such a lightweight that shes a Stanford University professor. Shes such a yahoo that she once accom-panied Yo-Yo Ma on the piano. The mob nonetheless believes that her due punishment for serving the wrong administration in the wrong cause should be banishment. When the University of Minnesota invited her to give a lecture as part of a series marking the 50th anniver-sary of the Civil Rights Act, the schools faculty roused itself. Roughly 200 of them demanded that the invitation be revoked, partly because she is unfit to be part of a civil-rights lecture series. What would give anyone the idea that a woman who was the nations first female African-American secretary of state, who experienced Jim Crow first-hand during her childhood in Alabama, who was friends with one of the girls killed in the Birmingham church bomb-ing would have anything relevant to say about civil rights? The Minnesota professors say that it is in a spirit of free expressionŽ that they ask for the reversal of Rices invitation. Because nothing says free expression like shutting down someones lecture. They claim they would love to have Rice come to the school on some other occasion. Presumably to sit in the dock at a mock war-crimes trial. The Rutgers faculty reacted in a similar vein to the selection of Rice as the schools commencement speaker. Does the Rutgers faculty really think Rice will urge graduating students to go out and start wars of choiceŽ and do extraor-dinary renditionsŽ? If the past is any guide, Rice will tell the Rutgers stu-dents about the importance of getting an education, of finding their passion, of being optimistic „ you know, all the truly dark stuff that animates quasi-war criminals. The hounding of Rice, naturally, all goes back to Bush national-security pol-icy. If support for the Iraq War is a mark of odiousness, though, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and John Kerry should never be allowed to set foot on a campus or sit on a corporate board, since they all voted to authorize it. But Rices critics arent interested in argument. As usual, her harassment is about narrowing the range of respect-ability so as to limit the parameters of political debate. This time, it is failing. The leaders of the University of Minne-sota, Rutgers and Dropbox have refused to dump Rice. Of course, if the typical rules applied, the fierce opposition to her would be attributed to racism, sexism and any other handy -ism.Ž Just imagine what Eric Holder would say if his opponents embarked on a concerted campaign to silence and shun him. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIs your kitten vaccinated for feline leukemia virus? You may not have thought to do so if you plan for him to be an indoor cat, but veterinary immunology expert Ronald Schultz, DVM, says that vaccina-tion during kittenhood, followed by a single booster vaccination at 1 year of age, is the best way to prevent the spread of the disease and reduce its incidence.Feline leukemia virus is the most common cause of cancer in cats and can cause various blood disorders. Some cats with the disease have poor immune systems and are unable to fight off infections. Signs of the disease include appetite loss, weight loss, poor coat condition, pale gums and persistent diarrhea. In the Unit-ed States, approximately 2 to 3 percent of cats are infected with the virus. Thats a low percentage, but its still a serious dis-ease that is highly communicable. Infected cats shed the virus through bodily fluids such as saliva, milk, urine and feces. They can spread it when they groom other cats, share food and water bowls, or use the same litter box. Nurs-ing mothers can pass it on through their milk. Kittens younger than 4 months and sick cats have the highest risk of infection and a higher rate of infection „ 13 percent or more. Cats who are vaccinated as kittens and boosted at 1 year will most likely have lifelong protection from the dis-ease, even if they never receive another vaccination. Age-related resistance to the disease typically develops when cats are about a year old. If we could have as many cats immune as possible, we probably would start to see very little FeLV,Ž Dr. Schultz says. Now some people say Well, its not that common anyway, but it still creates some significant disease.Ž Many cat owners whose pets dont go outside skip this vaccine, assuming that its not necessary. But cats can be escape artists or experience changes in lifestyle. I know an awful lot of indoor kittens that became outdoor cats,Ž Dr. Schultz says. Can we ever know when that ani-mal is a kitten that its never going to go outside and never be in contact with a potentially persistently viremic cat? The answer to that is no.Ž Other concerns include potential reactions to the vaccine, which can include swelling or pain at the injection site, lethargy or fever. Some cats devel-op granulomas (inflammatory nodules) or sarcomas (soft tissue tumors) at the injection site. The University of Califor-nia at Davis School of Veterinary Medi-cine suggests using a recombinant FeLV vaccine, citing evidence that this type of vaccine is associated with a decreased risk of sarcoma formation. The advisory panel of the American Association of Feline Practitioners sec-onds Dr. Schultzs advice to vaccinate kittens and boost the vaccination when they are a year old, but it does not con-sider FeLV a core vaccine, meaning one that is recommended for all cats. Adult cats should be vaccinated for FeLV only if they are at risk, according to the AAFP. Cats are at risk if they go outdoors, live with other cats who are known to be infected with FeLV, or live with other cats whose disease status is unknown.If you discover that one of your cats has FeLV, have any other cats in your home tested for the disease. If they are infection-free, its best to have them live separately from the infected cat so they dont share food and water bowls or litter boxes. Ask your veterinarian about the pros and cons of having the uninfected cats vaccinated, since vaccination doesnt help cats who are already infected. Q Kittens are at high risk of infection with feline leukemia virus if they are allowed to roam outdoors or live with cats who have the disease. >> Rocky is a 9-yearold neutered Manchester Terrier mix.

Fortin Foundation contributes $500,000 to Caridad Center SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Fortin Foundation has contributed $500,000 to enable Caridad Cen-ter to expand its dental clinic. Caridad is the largest free healthcare clinic operated through volunteer provid-ers in the state of Florida, serving the working poor and the recently unin-sured throughout Palm Beach County. The expanded clinic will be called the Fortin Foundation Dental Clinic. The Fortin Foundation has supported Caridad for many years, including a $20,000 donation in 2012 to support the Haitian Outreach Program. This extremely generous contribution will make a tremendous difference in the lives of Caridad Centers very low income patients,Ž Laura Kallus, executive director, said in a prepared statement. The working poor cannot usually afford visits to the doctor or dentist, and would suffer without the services available at Caridad.Ž Caridad Center provides 26,000 patient visits each year, bypassing costly emergency room visits and sav-ing Palm Beach County taxpayers an estimated $4.8 million annually. More than 400 local doctors, dentists and other medical professionals and vol-unteers donate their time (at a value of over $2.3 million a year) to provide their services at Caridad Center. The Fortin Foundation has been extremely important to the civic life of Palm Beach County, first under the direction of Mary Alice Fortin and now with the involvement of her chil-dren and grandchildren. Projects the foundation has supported in recent years, under the direction of founda-tion president Lesly Smith, include the United Ways Food Distribution Cen-ter in the Glades through the Glades Initiative, which distributed basic sta-ples to more than 100,000 people last year and establishing two of the last three Boys and Girls Clubs built in Palm Beach County. In past years, the Fortin Foundation provided funds for the restoration and renovation of Sea Gull Cottage, the oldest house in Palm Beach, as well as the restoration of the historic Memo-rial Fountain on Palm Beach. Other projects the foundation has supported include the Mary Alice For-tin Building and Fortin Summit at Rosarian Academy, the Fortin Child-care Foundation for children with AIDS in South Bay, the Mary Alice Fortin Childrens Art Gallery at the Society of the Four Arts, the town clock for the Town of Palm Beach, the lighting and palm tree beautifica-tion of South County Road, the Mary Alice Fortin Learning Wing at the DeGeorge Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County and the Fortin Home-less Center at St. Anns Place, West Palm Beach. Caridad Center is located at 8645 W. Boynton Beach Boulevard in Boyn-ton Beach. For more information about the center, call 853-1638 or visit Q

species that proliferates along the South Florida coast, tend to nest in late May and early June. Leatherbacks have been going really strong here the past two years,Ž said Scott Duncan, a ranger at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach. Im just really excited to see the numbers and see where they end up this year and hope we can con-tinue that positive trend.Ž Mr. Duncan reported nine leatherback nests and one loggerhead nest after a recent survey of the two-mile-long strand, noting the count changes daily. Were one of the darker beaches in the area, and theres no renourishment, so weve got that going for us,Ž he said. Sky glow in general is an issue.Ž Sky glow refers to one of the many forms of light pollution that can disori-ent hatchlings scurrying into the sea. Every year, its lighting thats really the biggest issue,Ž said Kirt Rusenko, a marine conservationist at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, which, at last count, identified nine leatherback nests along Boca Ratons beaches. Twenty percent of hatchlings die because of lighting issues. They go the wrong way.Ž The light of the moon reflecting off the surface of the water serves as a guide for the coin-size turtles, leading them east. Illumination from nearby businesses, condominiums, hotels, houses and roadways „ and city lights in general „ can confuse them. Florida has more loggerhead nests than anywhere in the world, so our nesting population is very critical,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. There are cities that have actually passed ordinances restricting lighting use.Ž The leading authority on light pollution, the International Dark-Sky Associ-ation has made a mission out of calling attention to the hazards of vanishing, star-filled evenings. Unnatural light not only disrupts ecosystems, it also threatens astronomy „ two astrono-mers founded the group in 1988 „ and wastes energy „ $2.2 billion worth in the United States. Theyve been at it for 25 years,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. Ten years ago, people didnt know anything about them, and now if you say Dark-Sky, people have an idea of whats up.Ž Other obstacles threatened loggerhead and endangered leatherback and green turtles face include fishing practices and regulations, construction and development along the coast, loss of coral reefs, seagrass beds and other aquatic habitats, boat strikes, entangle-ment and natural predators such as foxes and raccoons. Dont feed foxes and raccoons,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. It leads to their over-population.Ž At the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, a total of 55 leatherback nests and six loggerhead nests dotted the coastlines of Juno Beach, Jupiter, Tequesta and Jupiter Island, as of April 25. Adrienne McCracken, field-opera-tions manager, said, The 2014 nesting season is going really well. So far, it is shaping up to be a great one.Ž All three environmental organizations will offer turtle walks in June and July, with registration starting this month for the sure-to-sell-out, after-dark excur-sions. The programs consist of a social gathering and informational meeting inside, where guides will brief guests on turtle behavior, biology, crawl patterns and egg-laying. They also will discuss the critical dos and donts of turtle encounters. Then, they will head outside to witness what they have learned. As always, it is important that people are aware of the nesting sea turtles and hatchlings,Ž Ms. McCracken said. A few main ways people can help: Keep beach activities like digging and sandcastle-building in the wet sand so as not to disturb unmarked, incubat-ing nests. Fill in holes and knock over sandcastles before you leave the beach. If you walk the beach at nighttime, dont use any form of light „ even cell phones. The light will confuse sea turtles and their hatchlings. Never approach a nesting sea turtle or dig into a nest. Sea turtles are an endan-gered species, and it is a federal crime to disturb or harass them or their nests.Ž Q TURTLESFrom page 1 Juno Beach-Jupiter beaches:Leatherbacks – 55 Loggerheads – 6 Greens – 0Boca Raton beachLeatherbacks – 9 Loggerheads – 1 Greens – 0MacArthur Beach State Park:Leatherbacks – 9 Loggerheads – 1 Greens – 0 — Sources: Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, John D.

who seem to be healthy but are really at risk for developing a life-threatening disease „ to identify them before symp-toms appear „ the better to begin early treatment, if a condition is treatable, or to refer them for more specific screen-ing procedures that might identify a potentially fatal condition. For the moment, the test in question is not available. Much more research is needed before it will be. But accord-ing to a study that appeared in Febru-ary in the online journal PLOS Medi-cine, markers found in a persons blood, body fluids or tissue may predict a significantly higher risk of dying within a half-decade. PLOS (Public Library of Science) Medicine publishes peer-reviewed research articles. The article about the test explained how researchers in Finland and Estonia tracked 17,345 people, ages 18 to 103, to determine their causes of death. Both countries have health reg-istries that collect and keep blood samples and health records for many years, the study said, and those registries include large numbers of people representative of the wider population. In the Estonian group, the researchers looked at 106 blood components and determined that high levels of four naturally occurring molecules pre-dicted imminent death. During the five-year study, 288 people who died had tested in the top 20 per-cent of those with high levels of the four mark-ers. By comparison, just 15 who died had tested in the bottom 20 percent. In the Finnish group, similar risks showed up in test subjects with ele-vated levels of the four biomarkers. A biomarker is a molecule found in a persons blood, body flu-ids or tissues that may sig-nal an abnormal process, condition or disease, the study explained. The level of a particu-lar biomarker may indicate a patients risk of disease, or likely response to a treatment. Tests measure an individuals cholesterol levels, for example, to deter-mine the risk of heart disease. At pres-ent, no single biomarker can predict a general risk of poor health in anyone of any age. Heres how a study summary explains the basic concept: This study suggests that there are four biomarkers in the blood „ alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, albumin, VLDL (very-low-density lipoprotein) particle size, and citrate … that can be measured by NMR spectroscopy to assess whether otherwise healthy people are at short-term risk of dying from heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses.Ž The researchers made allowances for genetic predispositions. They factored in differences in age and weight, and use of alcohol and/or tobacco. They factored in whether a person had a pre-existing illness and what their choles-terol level was. The test is by no means infallible. Quite the opposite, in fact. The article went on to acknowledge several limita-tionsŽ to the study … among them, a fail-ure to identify what kinds of treatment might prove successful in reducing the risks.Ž Far more research will be needed, the article noted, to determine if such test-ing can offer any clinical benefit. Good Sams Dr. Fortier, for one, is not impressed by the studys findings … and how the results might affect those who took such a test. I think they would just worry more,Ž he says. It could lead to a whole cas-cade of (follow-up) tests.Ž A stress test, for example, could lead to an angiogram, which could suggest a CT scan, and, in the end, the patient might still have no conclusive answers. Its worth remembering, Dr. Fortier says, that worrying can lead to anxiety, and anxiety can trigger physical ailments. So, if a blood test could tell you whether youd be alive five years from now, would you take it? Not surprisingly, a variety of people, asked that question, gave a variety of answers. € Dr. Fortier pondered the notion, at first saying No, but then allowing that he might have the test done. You know something?Ž he said. Maybe I would do it, because Im always for doing what-ever I can for myself. If I could learn what I could do to change that (dire prediction).Ž € I would probably not take the test,Ž said nurse Tif-fany Morgan of West Palm Beach, because I wouldnt want that to weigh on my head. If it told me I had an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, and what I could do to prevent that, I would take it. But I wouldnt want to just live with that every day.Ž € Yes, of course I would take it if I could affect the outcome,Ž said Sam Sewell, a theologian and psycho-therapist in Naples. Some years ago, I was told I need-ed a heart transplant and, if I didnt have it, I wouldnt live to see another Christ-mas. Well, I didnt have the heart transplant. I did some research on my own and made some lifestyle chang-es. Im very much a fan of intervening and being my own doctor.Ž € I wouldnt want to know,Ž said Peggy Haas, a nurse from Palm Beach Gar-dens. If it were just a strong possibility and I were able to make lifestyle changes . but if not, then, no. I have a little 5-year-old grand-son, and I wouldnt want to think that I might not see him again the next day.Ž For now, the five-year mortality test is merely an intriguing possibility. But other tests, already in existence, do offer people the possibility of assessing their future health outlook „ a test, for exam-ple, that can identify genes that increase ones risk of developing Alzheimers. But because theres no cure for Alzheimers, health professional dont recommend routine genetic testing for the disease. Another test „ the BRCA1 and BRCA2 „ can test for the most common breast cancer genes. Inherited gene mutations for breast cancer most often show up in the BRAC1 and BRAC2 genes „ but not all women with that gene muta-tion develop breast cancer. And women who dont have a detectable BRAC gene mutation may develop it. The test is not 100 percent accurate, but some women who test positive opt to undergo a mas-tectomy, just in case. And theres another thing to consider: Worrying can cause a high level of anxi-ety and stress „ and stress can lead to physical illness. In the end, many just prefer the que sera, sera approach: What will be, will be. Q TESTFrom page 1 “I wouldn’t want to know.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYPlay it safe to avoid sports-related head injuries This month is National Trauma Awareness Month, and the theme this year is Playing It SafeŽ with a focus on sports injuries. According to the Ameri-can Trauma Society, in recent years, increasing numbers of people of all ages have been heeding their health profes-sionals advice to get active for all of the health benefits exercise has to offer. But for some people „ particularly those who overdo it or dont properly train or warm up „ these benefits can come at a price. From sprains, strains and shin splints, to fractures, dislocations and cuts, there are many ways you can hurt yourself when playing sports. But perhaps no injury is as alarming as one to the head. While sports injuries usu-ally dont contribute to fatalities, the number one cause of death from sports-related injuries is traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury occurs when normal function of the brain is disrupt-ed by a blow or jolt to the head, or if an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. This type of injury can cause a wide range of symptoms depending on the severity of brain damage. Signs of injury to the head may include head-ache, problems with balance, trouble coordinating motor skills, changes in sensory perception, impaired cognitive abilities or difficulty speaking. As a Provisional Level 1 Trauma Center, St. Marys Medical Center offers the high-est level of trauma services designated by the Florida Department of Health to treat the most complex injuries. St. Marys is one of 24 verified trauma centers in Florida and one of only 10 hospitals in the state that are certi-fied as an acute Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program. In addition, the hospital is a state-designated Pediatric Trauma Referral Center. With more than 20 years of experience as a trauma cen-ter, St. Marys Medical Centers staff is highly skilled in trauma surgery, neu-rosurgery, orthopedic surgery, nursing and many other specialties. According to a study published by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, a review of 2009 data provided by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission showed that more than 446,000 sports-related head injuries were treated in American emergency rooms. The top five causes of injuries are cycling, foot-ball, baseball and softball, basketball and water sports such as swimming, diving, scuba diving, surfing, water polo or water skiing. Other sports/recreational activities that contribute to the number of head injuries treated in U.S. hospitals include powered recreational vehicles (such as go-carts, all-terrain vehicles, dune bug-gies or mini bikes), soccer, skateboards, skiing and snowboarding, horseback riding, gymnastics, golf and hockey. One of the best ways to prevent a sports-related head injury is to wear protective headgear or a helmet that has been approved by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for specific sports. ASTM-approved helmets, which have been thoroughly tested for many sports, must fit properly to provide maximum protection against head injuries. In cycling, for example, an estimated 85 percent of head injuries can be pre-vented by properly using approved hel-mets. Other safety apparel or gear may also be necessary for certain sports, such as football. Additional ways to prevent head injuries include not wearing clothing that may interfere with vision, not partici-pating in a sport when ill or overly tired, avoiding uneven surfaces when cycling or skateboarding, and not diving into shallow water or above-ground pools. In a situation that involves head trauma, try to keep the injured person lying down, with head and shoulders slightly elevated, until medical help arrives. Stop bleeding by applying firm pressure to the head wound, but not direct pressure if there might be a skull frac-ture. Be aware of changes in breathing and alertness, and begin cardiopulmo-nary resuscitation if the person shows no signs of circulation. It is important to remember that with head injuries recovery will be variable and the more severe the injury, the higher the chances are for permanent impairment. Traumatic or more severe brain injuries can cause physical, cognitive, behavioral or emotional problems. For more information about sportsrelated head injuries, talk with your neurologist or call 882-9100 for a free physician referral. To learn more about the Provisional Level 1 Trauma Center at St. Marys Medical Center, see Q I i R y t h r davide CARBONE CEO, St. Marys Medical Center How do we find a way to make our lives have meaning?It was a glorious day „ crisp and bright. Neil opened the shades, and quickly shut them. He knew it was a picture-perfect day to take the boat out, but it was hard for him to muster the enthusiasm Ironically, hed spent his entire professional career dreaming of the day he would be able to slow down enough to enjoy his leisure time pursuits. But, now that the time had finally arrived, and Neil was fully retired, he was apathetic. Neil now had all the time in the world to pursue his hobbies, but after a while, each day had begun to look the same. He hated to complain, because, after all, he had the good fortune to have ample means to live a great life. But, what was it all about, anyway?So, heres the question.Do we face each morning with anticipation „ looking forward to the days agenda? Or do we wake and face the day with resignation? Or, even worse, with dread? Of course, our answers may fluctuate, as we face the ebb and flow of lifes inevitable challenges and curveballs. For some of us, the drive to be success-ful may have motivated our efforts in the earlier stages of life when we were raising a family or building a career. In those circumstances, we may have believed we had time for little else but our work life. In so many instances, our responsibilities may require us to commit to a schedule that demands our attention, but offers little in the way of stimulation or reward. We may believe we have no choice but to continue fol-lowing a routine thats quite rote and unfulfilling. And, it may not occur to us that there would be any time left over for any pursuits that would offer a sense of valuable purpose. However, when necessity no longer commands that we pay full attention to the externals, and we have the luxury to chart our own course, we may find it incredibly diffi-cult to shift gears. Its especially at these times that we would be well served to step back even-tually ask important existential ques-tions. Psychiatrist, and Nazi concentration camp survivor Viktor Frankl wrote one of the most influential books in the 20th Century: Mans Search for Meaning.Ž His memoir challenged countless indi-viduals to look within to perhaps make sense of unimaginable horrors. But he further confronted his readership to consider the myriad possibilities in their own lives. According to Frankl: What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.Ž In this pursuit, we may seriously question whether we are truly satisfied with our everyday ventures. We may take inventory of our contributions and ask ourselves what weve done to make our mark on the planet. In the end, we may be reaching for that certain some-thingŽ that makes it all feel worthwhile. Its a deeply personal appraisal, with no right or wrong answers. It may seem like some folks were born, just knowing the path that would offer them solid satisfaction. The rest of us may be harder pressed as we grapple to sort it out. It probably requires taking the time to dig deepŽ and truly look within our-selves. We may need to push through our comfort zone to consider goals weve been too lazy, too intimidated or too frightened to tackle. We may need to address the insecurities that previously may have prevented us from pursuing certain avenues. Perhaps weve worried others would judge us, or that we didnt have the skills. Or, simply, we may have been so consumed with putting one foot in front of the other in our everyday lives, we were not even aware that we might have been feeling frustrated or discontented. Many of us look to our interpersonal relationships as a source of pride and accomplishment. Truly giving to others can be hugely gratifying. Perhaps we may reach out to an estranged family member, or open up in an important way to a loved one. Our quest may be to navigate these relationships in deeper, more fulfilling ways going forward, tak-ing important risks to open ourselves up to more fulfilling connections with significant others going forward. There are many who may feel passionate about a particular pursuit, whether its needlepoint, cycling, moun-tain climbing, or critiquing movies. Of course, it would be unfair for any of us to judge another persons direction or career path. Some of us may take the time to consider our unique gifts and capabili-ties and elect to channel our efforts by volunteering to a cause we deem valu-able.

Four families donate $5 million to new Meyer Jewish Academy SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNearly 16 years after relocating to its current location in West Palm Beach, the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy is set to open new doors in Palm Beach Gardens thanks largely to the generous support of four philanthropic families who have donated more than $5 million to the Jew-ish Federation of Palm Beach Countys new Tomorrow Today campaign, with funds earmarked to the exemplary day school, the federation said in a prepared statement. Donors include the Meyer family … Sydelle, her son, Bill, and his wife, Denise, and Sydelles daughter and son-in-law, Gail Meyer Asarch and Dr. James Sato-vsky „ whose patriarch, ArthurzŽl „ is the schools namesake. Claire and MelzŽl Levine, Robert M. Beren, and Hank Strauss, have stepped forward with sig-nificant capital campaign gifts, joining the Meyer family to fund the relocation of the day school. The Meyer Academy, which serves students in grades kindergarten through eight, will open August 20 at 5225 Hood Road, adjacent to the Mandel JCC where both partner agencies of the Jewish Fed-eration of Palm Beach County can share facilities, including sports fields, a full-size gymnasium and an aquatics center. For the Meyer family, this $1 million gift was an easy decision. Sydelles hus-band, Authur zŽl, had stood up nearly two decades ago when the school, then named the Jewish Community Day School and located at Parker Avenue in West Palm Beach, was at a crossroads. He felt a responsibility to create a vibrant new school with a focus on exemplary Jewish and secular studies, and his lead donation to the school inspired others to help turn a vision into a reality. The school has grown in prestige. We decided as a family to elevate the school even further with the most advanced education techniques in a state-of-the-art facility,Ž said Bill Meyer, who has served on the Meyer Academys Board of Direc-tors for 21 years, and has a 26-year old son and 30-year old daughter, both of whom attended the school in previous locations, in a prepared statement. The first years of education set a critical foundation for future learning. My wife Denise visited day schools around the country to explore the best Jewish day school designs and practices, which were incorporated into the design. Not only is the new space top-notch for students, the research helped us identify how best to provide ample and effective space for teachers as well.Ž Bills sister, Gail, added, in the statement, Our continued support not only perpetuates our parents dreams, but also reminds our children of the obligations for each generation to support the Jewish community.Ž The 68,000-sq.-ft., two-story Meyer Academy will house areas referred to as learning commons, including a multime-dia center, science labs, a state-of-the-art TV studio and a production room. Class-rooms will be equipped with advanced technologies from iPads to laptops, which support hands-on, exploratory learning across all grades and subject matter. The school also offers an International Bacca-laureate Middle Years Programme for the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. The Meyer Academy is a high-tech, high-touchŽ academic campus, with our core focus on strong academics in a small-class setting where students are posi-tioned to thrive,Ž said Head of School Nehemia NammieŽ Ichilov, in the state-ment. Another core component to our culture is a strong sense of community, where teachers know the students and the parents, where parents know each other, and where there is a sense of belonging, not only for the child but for the whole family.Ž The schools foundation in Jewish education, which includes Judaic classes (stu-dents are also encouraged to learn a third language) as well as an 8th grade field trip to Israel, is the central reason Claire Levine, decided to donate $2.5 million in her husbands name. The Melvin J. and Claire Levine Center for Jewish Learn-ing is named in his honor. Her husband, MelzŽl who passed away in 2013, always had been passionate about Jewish edu-cation, attending Hebrew and Sunday school as a child. His grandfather was a rabbi. Its an honor that the Meyer Academys Jewish learning program will bare Mels name and continue his legacy of quality Jewish education and learning for students today and in the future,Ž said Claire Levine. Hank Strauss, a Palm Beach Gardens resident, whose most recent donation brought his total commitment to $1 mil-lion, rededicated Strauss Hall, a popular space affectionately referred to as the cafetorium.Ž The Hall serves as the din-ing hall, stage, theatre and multi-purpose room.

Originally from New York City, Dr. Lipan completed undergraduate work at Cornell University, went on to gradu-ate in the top quartile of his class with a distinction in research at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and then trained with well-respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons at the University of Miami. Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON How to avoid the plastic surgery look In the first half 2014, a number of celebrities have caught unwanted attention for “bad” facial plastic surgery. The Oscar award ceremony highlighted a number of actors and actresses who sought to reverse the signs of aging but instead wound up with facial features that were altered and appeared abnormal. In this column, I’ve listed a few keys to preventing bad results after cosmetic procedures: Have a long discussion with your plastic surgeon about what your goals are. Whether you’re seeking a facelift or facial filler, you both need to be on the same page regarding your desired endpoint in order to get a good result. Continuity of care cannot be understated. Staying with the same plastic surgeon is important in the long run. Patients that I’ve been treating with various procedures whether surgical or non-invasive will get better results because I best know their history. This information is vital to determine how that will impact any additional future procedures. I always review a patient’s chart before every visit to give better guidance for what to do next. Conservative approaches are best. Remember, my goal is always to restore how you looked when you were younger, not alter your appearance. Once your appearance is altered, people will notice and feel you have had bad plastic surgery. When procedures are overdone, it can be hard to correct. This is true for surgery as well as less invasive procedures, such as fillers. Overall, the best results are achieved when you and your plastic surgeon have a good rapport, share the same sense of what is attractive and take a conservative approach with the goal of restoration rather than alteration. If you are interested in any facial plastic surgery procedures, please contact my office to schedule a free consultation. Michael Lipan, M.D., Facial Plastic SurgeonGardens Cosmetic Center Are you afraid of bad plastic surgery?ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: Why do my dentures keep sliding around in my mouth? Answer: If you lose teeth and wear a denture, you will get atrophy, which is jawbone loss and/or shrinkage. Over time, the atrophy will advance and the fit of your denture becomes compromised. In fact, your dentures may slip and slide around in your mouth, and hopefully not out of your mouth. As bone loss gets worse, the fit of your dentures will deteriorate even further. Natural teeth have 150-250 pounds per square inch (PSI) of chewing power. New dentures are around 50 PSI. Dentures, after 10 years, can have a little as 6 PSI! However, with dental implants, your bone maintains its strength and function and you can restore 98 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth while avoiding the embarrassment of messy and dangerous denture adhesive. This patient opted for dental implants and new teeth in both jaws to prevent bone loss and restore her chewing power back to what it used to be. To alleviate her anxiety over visiting the dentist, she opted for IV Sedation. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified Sedation Dentist and is highly reliable, safe & effective for comfort & amnesia during all types of dental treatment.

On May 4, Benedict will present I Died and Lived To Tell About ItŽ … an inspirational lecture-and-lunch event that will include such sessions as Living at the Speed of LightŽ and Spirit of Gaia.Ž The health-technology consultant and mind-and-body scholar will discuss advances in anti-aging phototherapy and quantum biology dur-ing Living at the Speed of LightŽ while delivering a dynamic multimedia pre-sentation touching on collective intelli-gence, metaphysics and starseed destiny during Spirit of Gaia.Ž The first time I heard Mellens story, my life was changed forever,Ž said Lind-say Babich, board chairwoman of Heal-ing Touch Buddies, the local nonprofit organizing the lecture. I understood how important a positive attitude is to my very existence and the future of our planet.Ž Proceeds from the fascinating fundraiser support the nonprofits volunteer certified energy therapists who pro-vide care and comfort to breast-cancer patients. In this, our 10th year, I have come to understand the value of what we do,Ž said Betty Ann Baker, Healing Touch Buddies co-founder and executive director. This is our way of bringing peace and compassion to the world. Although it can be a challenge to hold an expansive, positive view in the midst of pain and suffering, we see and expe-rience, looking deeply both inward and outward, endless richness to the mys-tery of our life and beyond.Ž In 1982, following a terminal braincancer diagnosis, Benedict lost all vital signs for 90 minutes and is believed to have died. When he awoke, not only was his disease in remission, but he also was able to recall the journey he took to the other side. The near-death experience revealed to him Earths past and future, the souls connection to the planet (Gaia) and mankinds role in the universe. In the bestselling book Life After Death, Deepak Chopra called Benedicts experience the Encyclo-pedia of the After Life.Ž The sessions run from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m., with vendor sales and lunch in between. Tick-ets cost $50 for the entire event, or $30 for either the morning or afternoon talks. VIP tickets, which include a wine reception from 4:45 to 6 p.m. and a DVD, cost $125. Funds raised will enable Healing Touch Buddies to train new therapists in method, support and care. Therapists are required to undergo a minimum of intermediate training in healing touch or Reiki, or energy-medicine instruc-tion at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, prior to entering the breast-cancer-specific Healing Touch Buddies program. Today, close to 100 volunteers serve women in Martin, Palm Beach and Broward counties, and their hours annually amount to more than $100,000 in in-kind services. Healing Touch Buddies is endorsed by the South Florida chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Hip-pocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach. Ongoing campaigns include A Gift for Mom,Ž to honor the memory of a mother, grandmother, sister or friend; Train a Volunteer,Ž to generate scholar-ship money; Raise the Light,Ž through which lanterns are purchased to repre-sent the flame of care and compassion; and The Naomi Thomas Endowment Foundation,Ž named after a former cli-ent.

Miami experts, county emergency staff to present hurricane forecasting session SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWith hurricane season quickly approaching, the Mandel JCC Palm Beach Gardens is inviting community members to attend a free presenta-tion explaining the science behind hurricane forecasting and tracking on Thursday, May 8, at 7 p.m. Experts in the field will discuss the impact of the various hurricane categories, as well as crucial information for South Florida residents to prepare and stay safe during hurricane season. The presentation will be led by Ph.D. students from the Universi-ty of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, along with the planning manager at the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management, Jeffrey M. Goldberg. The Ph.D. students, who are well-versed in hurricane science, will provide explanations behind the complicated forecasts and discuss impacts associated with hurricanes. Mr. Goldberg will deliver additional information on new evacuation routes and what preparations are needed on the days leading up to a hurricane, as well as how to make a plan, build a kit, stay informed and get involved. A question-and-answer period will fol-low the presentation. This year marks the nine-year anniversary of Hurricane Wilma, which also makes this Floridas longest hurri-cane drought since 1850. This drought, in addition to the exponential growth of metropolitan South Florida in recent years, has created a knowledge deficit in hurricane preparedness. The event is presented by the Academy of Continuing Education (ACE), which offers a variety of thought-pro-voking, educational and entertaining classes to the community. The ACE program offers secular class topics, such as current events, science, art and wellness, as well as an educational track based on Judaic and Israel stud-ies, in partnership with area syna-gogues.

Q New businesses move in at PGA CommonsSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________Like other things here, doing business in the subtropics is frequently coun-terintuitive, at least compared to chal-lenges faced by other business owners in North America. While folks in the north prepare for a continent-wide injection of tourist money set flowing by the Great Ameri-can Summer Vacation „ and while they respond to the proportionate increase in demand for more supplies and a more efficient logistics „ small busi-ness owners on the Florida peninsula often find themselves challenged by completely different circumstances, they say. From Palm Beach to Punta Gorda, and from Naples to Jupiter, they have to face rain gauges and thermometers that seem to rocket upward, and net incomes that sometimes descend like fast elevators. Weve tried several options over the last few years,Ž admits Mari Vivet, co-owner with her (French) husband, Christian Vivet, of the sophisticated little Blue Windows Bistro on U.S. 41 in South Fort Myers. Up until 2013 we couldnt take much time off, so we tried closing one week each month of sum-mer, at firstƒŽ What they will do this year „ what any entrepreneur in southern Florida operating too far from Disney WorldDealing with the downtimeBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” The summer slowdown means different things to Palm Beach businesses “Up until 2013 we couldn’t take much time off, so we tried closing one week each month of summer, at first…” — Mari Vivet, co-owner, Blue Windows BistroSEE DOWNTIME, A23 X


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 BUSINESS A23to be part of that economic aberration will do this year to make lemonade out of the summer lemon „ is not quite anybodys guess. Each business owner seems to follow a logic of his or her own. But whatever they do, it certainly does not appear to be merely sitting around and waiting for things to improve. Instead, between roughly mid-April and mid-October „ for about six months „ theyre challenged to exer-cise the most sophisticated economic calculations they possess. In short, they have to practice the true alchemy of the entrepreneur: dealing with the down time. So, they retool, they re-educate, they refurbish (sometimes themselves, sometimes their properties) or they restore special summer deals to appeal to Florida travelers and tourists taking advantage of the Sunshine States rainy season.StrategiesLast week, for example, Jim Anderson, owner of Anderson Classic Hardware in West Palm Beach, had closed on Thursday and Friday to install an entirely new air-conditioning system in the popular store. Come deep summer, he figures, that will be no small attrac-tion for the sweating multitudes who just love the way things work. His staff wont mind it, either. And in Lake Park at the Italiannuanced Pelican Caf, owners Karen Howe and Mark Frangione finish the in-season rush on Easter, and then downshift, slightly, to a summer gear designed to appeal to the locals. We do summer specials, we do live music on Wednesday nights to help us,Ž explains Ms. Howe „ and we welcome the reprieve.Ž Across the state on Captiva Island, there is no reprieve at Jensens Twin Palm Resort & Marina „ in part because of the increasingly robust economy, and in part because of the Europeans, says Dave Jensen, one of three brothers who own and operate the resort. For us, and I believe for most businesses along the coast, we no longer have the summer doldrums. Rate cut-ting has not been necessary because we have lots of visitors from other parts of Florida: Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Orlando and the Tampa region.Ž Europeans add significantly to that mix, he says, especially since their school calendar allows them to be here after the middle of August when the Florida children go back to school.Ž Refurbishing and upkeep of cottages, therefore, is scheduled after Labor Day and before the fall and winter holidays, Mr. Jensen explains. That doesnt mean the business couldnt grow, though. Another opportunity for us with the European market would be to get direct flights from England and more from Germany. Maybe we, the hospitality folks, can have a pow-wow session with the port authority and see what we can do to make this happen.Ž In Punta Gorda, meanwhile, Ralph Allen is down in the engine room of one of his boats „ the three-gener-ation family business operates King Fisher Fleet with charters and cruises throughout Charlotte Harbor „ fixing an engine as April rolls toward May and business slows. His daughter, Elissa Allen, who grew up on her dads and grandfathers boats, is preparing a rather extraordinary selection of summer deals, she says „ so business wont be slowing very much. May, for example, is Military Appreciation MonthŽ in the King Fisher Fleet, when any active duty soldier, sailor or Marine, or any veteran, can cruise for free „ and so can anybody who makes a $10 donation to the Military Heritage Museum located near the Fleet office in Fishermens Village. There are also special deals for Mothers Day and Fathers Day, Ms. Allen notes. For example, we have 14 moms coming from Sterling House (an assisted living facility) for Mothers Day, and theyre all going on a sunset cruise at no cost,Ž she says. We really like doing that.Ž Thats a significant give-a-way for the business, since tickets normally run from $17.95 to $29.95. But its also good business, because were showing the customers in our own community a little l ove,Ž she explains. Or a lot of love.That has to be done at some point „ not just because its a nice thing to do, but because it can ultimately boost profits or guarantee a base patronage that wont melt away in the heat, says Suzanne Sprecht, assistant director of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys wide-reaching Small Business Development Center. Summer is a great time to do customer appreciations for existing cus-tomers „ maybe some events or deals geared toward them, to add value to them, since theyre sometimes forgot-ten in the rush of season,Ž she says. But gearing up the specials, offering reduced rates or sales, opening doors to special groups „ all of that might prove more costly to a business and its hard-working owners than simply closing up shop for an extended period. Especially when it comes to businesses that have to be hands-on all the time, such as restaurants. After the Vivets tried a week per month off in summer from their allday, all-evening six-day-a-week venture, they decided to do it differently, and just close for September. Then last year, they chose to close the Bistro for three months „ a bold but restorative move, Mrs. Vivet says. And this year? Once again, theyre taking a three-month hiatus. After we close,Ž explains Mrs. Vivet, Christian is off on a quick trip to Paris to visit his family and then we are off to the mountains (of North Carolina and Georgia).Ž Thats about business, in part.From a cost of doing business perspective, between labor costs, spoil-age, utilities and the lack of revenue, we actually reduced our expenses and overhead so much that the numbers made sense last year when we closed. Business drops off alot when the win-ter visitors leave town, so staying open isnt really cost effective. And after working 12 to 15 hours a day, six days a week at our 33-seat (plus eight at the bar) bistro, the chef (Mr. Vivet) needs a break. The only way we can really afford to do this, is that we are the owners, so we dont have to worry about hiring personnel for those two key positions „ chef and front-of-house manager. The intimate size of our restaurant and the rental rate, along with not being in a mall that has restrictions on clos-ings, also help make our taking a break doable.Ž Making the resources workFor those who cant or wont take the long-vacation option, however, the SBDC, newly named the FloridaSB-DC@floridagulfcoastuniversity (the new name is also the website) has aggressively upped its game to help small businesses all over the state, this summer. For starters, the SBDC has hired some veteran, very knowledgeable consul-tants who stand ready to assist busi-nesses „ for free. Owners or managers can get educated during the summer, they can come get some consulting that could help change the way they do thingsŽ „ and thus change the bottom line signifi-cantly, says Ms. Sprecht. We have a QuickBooks expert, an international trade expert, a consul-tant that specializes in sales tax who came from the Department of Rev-enue: These are no-cost opportunities, although some seminars have a minimal cost themselves. So if theyre drowning in QuickBooks, they can meet with that expert, who can help them retool or see if theyre using their resources prop-erly. Or maybe they want to trade outside the U.S. „ they can meet with our international trade expert, Kevin Brady. Or they could attend our Small Business Resource Mini Trade Show, which kicks off May 14.Ž Any or all of that might help such entrepreneurs as Karen and Phillip Christie, co-owners of Smoke Signals Meats and Maverick Meat Processing, based in Lee County. As a six-month blizzard of farmers market appearances where the Chris-ties sell their high-end meat products subsides, theyre planning to continue with what we did right, such as intro-ducing locally raised, USDA inspected beef,Ž says Mr. Christie. The offseason, he adds, is no longer off,Ž he adds. Instead, he plans to establish new relationships with local farmers, market the retail end of the business from his plant, and expand the customer base of restaurants in the region seeking local products, he says. The Small Business Development Center, therefore, might help provide him a ticket to ride. Q DOWNTIMEFrom page 22 Advice from Suzanne Specht, assistant director, Florida SBCD“In summer here, small business owners need to ne tune their marketing plans. Look at current budgets, develop new market-ing tactics. “A lot of times they forget about local customers — the locals. Look at them carefully. It’s always easier to get perhaps more business from an existing customer rather than from a new customer. So look at whatever database you have for existing customers. What other products and services can you offer them? “Touch base. You have an opportunity in the summer to connect with and value existing clientele — the forgotten ones during season. These are the customers you have mainly had and will always probably have. “Offer them something new.” SPECHT ANDERSON


A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYGood investors read good books and lots of reportsGood investors read multiple periodicals on a regular basis and good investors attempt to annually read several books for much deeper investment understanding. Great investors are often found to be vora-cious readers, having an insatiable desire to keep learning and add to their skill set. So important is reading (versus listening to financial pundits) that Sir John Temple-ton (the Father of International Invest-ingŽ) physically removed himself from the maddening crowd (spending most of his time in the Bahamas) and he removed himself from the most prevalent sources of financial information. By his own admis-sion, he did not read many newspapers or listen to financial news, as he felt it was a distraction from the real learning process. He felt that the media skewed investor per-ceptions. Instead, he read corporate annual reports by the hundreds. As many of the largest public companies will soon be releasing their 2013 year-end annual reports, you might want to make a list of several companies annuals that you will want to read. Your reading shoud span several sectors: e.g., railroad, car manufac-turing, technology, food processing, health-care, energy, etc. If you undertake that dis-cipline for 10 years, you will amass a large knowledge base across diverse sectors of the economy. In addition to corporate annual report reading, many enlightened investors allo-cate effort and time to read several good investment books each year. Here are less well known investment books that can help you grow your understanding of investment styles and strategies and, more importantly, grow your understanding of your investing self. First, you need to know your emotional investment you.Ž Most people are not in touch with the reality of their emotions and how they get derailed in their thinking and actions. In these regards, it is good for all to read Your Money and Your Brain: How the New Science of Neuroeconomics Can Help Make You Rich  by Jason Zweig. Learn how: Investment brains often drive us to do things that make no logical senseƒ (as our) emotional circuits deep in our brains make us instinctively crave what feels likely to be rewarding and shun what-ever seems liable to be risky.Ž If you know that you have bought high and sold low; if you have wrongly exited a stock because it missed earnings expectations by a penny; if you allocate much time to watching finan-cial pundits but recognize that individually and collectively they have a terrible track record in market predictions; if you chase yesterdays great performers; etc., then you are human, and you should read this book. Second, the novice investor needs to know that even he can find his way through the investing maze. A book that helps beginning investors is a classic by legend-ary mutual fund manager Peter Lynch: One Up On Wall Street: How To Use What You Already Know To Make Money In The Market.Ž Mr. Lynch affirms that the typical amateur investor has advantages over the typical mutual fund manager. The unseasoned investor is perfectly capable of spotting companies that: have a great new product, are entering a new market or have a new management team posed to turning a dull, desultory or damaged company into a superstar. Not that the numbers are unimportant; numbers follow breakthrough products. Third, everyone needs to be reminded that their investing brilliance often is many times due to a bull market ƒ that a crash will one day bring humanity back to their doorstep. Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial CrisesŽ by Charles Kindle Berger describes peculiar excessesŽ and how they are followed by a revulsion from such excesses;Ž manias are followed by panics, crashes or crises. He describes how, somewhere along the way, the logic in investment thinking gets caught up with the emotions of profits and in the panic, how their investment thinking gets short circuited by the fear of further loss. Fourth, most experienced investors eventually develop their investment style; they hone in on a strategy that works best for them. It is tailored to the specif-ics of the way they think, act, emote, how they want to live and allocate time and resources to investing, and the skills they bring to the table and resources. Just One Thing: Twelve of the Worlds Best Inves-tors Reveal the One Strategy You Cant OverlookŽ by John Mauldin takes investors beyond Graham and Dodd, or Templeton or Buffett or Lynch etc. Mauldins greatsŽ include Dennis Hartman who describes the Rules of Trading; A. Gary Shilling who writes on bonds; and a host of lesser known namesƒ. but all hugely successful. There is plenty of room for weirdness in investing and plenty of money to be made in these unique styles. Financial Shenanigans: How to Detect Accounting Gimmicks & Fraud in Finan-cial ReportsŽ by Howard Schlitz presents a universal message: that investors should always assume that (publicly traded companies have) the urge to exaggerate the positive and hide the negative ƒ will never disappear. And where the tempta-tion exists, shenanigans often follow.Ž The financial misrepresentations and/or finan-cial falsities in annual reports verbiage and financial statements happens if there is intent to mislead and it even happens when there is no intent to mislead. For instance, equity rock stars growing so fast often can-not handle their attendant financial report-ing requirements; these managers live in a euphoric world of high-fives and deny any-thing that dampers their super star status. On a regular basis, I read the posts at the online stock forum, Value Forum, not just for the posters comments, but for the posters linkage to insightful news col-umns, research and for their review of new investment books. If there is just one great idea that you garner from such investment books, it will likely pay investment dividends multiple times over.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 BUSINESS A25Sari’s AngelsNonprofit provides support for caregivers coping with cancerOne year has passed since Ilene Arons brother died from liver cancer. The Jupiter resident reflected on the moment by taking a walk on the beach while listening to Hawaiian artist Israel Kamakawiwooles version of the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow.Ž Rob listened to that song over and over and over,Ž Ms. Arons said of her sibling. His death came shortly after that of their mother, Marilyn, who had colon cancer. In between, Ms. Arons father, Joe, broke his hip. I couldnt believe all of this was happening at once,Ž said Ms. Arons, who is project administrator in the Kravis Cen-ters marketing department. It was a little intense.Ž While at a volunteer event for the Friends of Jupiter Beach, she received a tip from one of the members that the Sari Center in West Palm Beach offered resources for caregivers. I thank God that this woman gave me that lead,Ž Ms. Arons said. She said, You have to speak to Patty Liebman at the Sari Center. Ž Patty Liebman works as an oncology counselor at the nonprofit organization founded on the principle of integrative care for those affected by cancer. She has 18 years of experience in the field, and an Unsung HeroŽ Award from Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Patty really helped me through this journey,Ž Ms. Arons said. She is fantastic. I saw her quite a bit for 18 months. She understands cancer. She was able to help me with coping on a day-to-day basis, set-ting boundaries for myself.Ž The Sari Center offers a variety of services and treatments for cancer patients and their families, including acupuncture, Healing Touch, hypnotherapy, lymphede-ma treatment, massage therapy, nutrition classes, and support groups. Ms. Arons received Healing Touch, a certified energy therapy technique that calms and nurtures the body and mind. She also attended nutrition classes. They were just so helpful to me and reminded me how to take care of myself,Ž she said. I had a really rough time, but I wanted to keep moving forward.Ž Today, Ms. Arons volunteers for the place that saved her spirit and renewed her well being. She sponsored a hole at last years Sari Center Golf Classic and organized the events silent auction. She also ran in the Sari Center 5K Run/Walk in February. Because of her efforts, she has become one of Saris Angels.Ž Ill do anything for them,Ž she said. Theyre just a wonderful, wonderful organization. From the minute you walk into the Sari Center, it couldnt be a more comfortable environment. The people are what make it comforting. Corinne, from the very beginning, just welcomed me with open arms.Ž Corinne Danielson serves as the Sari Centers executive director. Yes, shes one of our angels,Ž Ms. Danielson said of Arons. Shes amazing. So many people who have been served by the center want to find a way to give back. They become grateful.Ž The Sari Center debuted in August 2008, following the death of its name-sake, Sari Asher, to multiple myeloma. Asher sought out integrative approaches to accompany her medical procedures and lived a better quality of life because of it. The Asher family started the center based on her holistic beliefs. A lot of people dont understand what integrative cancer care is and how much it helps patients in their cancer process,Ž Ms. Danielson said. Healing Touch is excellent for fatigue in patients, for exam-ple, and a lot of our patients suffer from fatigue. Part of our marketing struggle is were finding it hard to articulate what we do and how it helps.Ž Enter The Gardens Mall, kicking off the year with its 25 Years of Giving,Ž a one-of-a-kind charity campaign that is offering a helping hand to some of Palm Beach Countys most respected humanitarian organizations. One of the 25 organizations honored by The Gardens Mall was the Sari Center. In addition to receiving a $5,000 check, the center was included in a countywide media campaign to help raise additional money and awareness for the philanthro-py. The exposure is huge for us,Ž Ms. Danielson said. Its expensive to get publicity, and we really thank The Gardens Mall for this exceptional nod of public acknowl-edgment.Ž What the Sari Center offers to the community is compassion, invaluable resourc-es, and a safe refuge from the storm,Ž said Michele Jacobs, director of marketing and operations for The Forbes Company. The Gardens Mall is very proud to be their philanthropic partner.Ž Q The Sari Center>>Where: 3401 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens >>Phone: 578-5900 >>More Info: BY AMY WOODSawoods@floridaweekly.comCOURTESY PHOTOS Corrine Danielson of Sari’s Angels, Sidney Forbes, owner of the Forbes company, and Michele Jacobs, director of marketing and operations for Forbes, celebrate the “25 Years of Giving.” Joe Arons with his wife, Marilyn.

The Art of Living KOVEL: ANTIQUESAmerican pottery portray real and romanticized animals BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL American art pottery artists often painted pictures on their vases, pitch-ers and other pieces. They painted bats, frogs, rabbits, birds and other animals in their natural form, as well as fan-tasy animals represented as well-dressed humanlike figures. The marks on these ceramics often indicate the age, company and artist, as well as some other factory information about type of clay or glazes. What better way to suggest the origin, age and value of a piece today. Robert Bruce Horsfall (1869-1948) was an artist at Cincinnatis Rookwood factory, where he decorated a Standard Glaze pitcher with pictures of the Toad of Toad Hall from The Wind in the Willows,Ž the 1908 childrens classic by Kenneth Gra-hame. The finished pitcher was then sent to Gorham Manufacturing Co., where it was given a silver overlay. The well-designed piece, with a complete history, sold for $4,375 at a March 2014 Rago Arts auction in Lambertville, N.J., even though it had some minor imperfections. Q: I have a Lloyd Loom baby carriage that was bought for my dad when he was born in 1924. The inside has been re-covered, but everything else is origi-nal and is still in very good condition. It has glass porthole-type windows in the side of the hood, a wooden handle, rubber tires on the wheels and a brake. A metal tag on it reads, Lloyd Loom ProductsŽ and Method Patented Oct. 16, 1917.Ž Can you tell me approximately when it was built and the current value? Its priceless to me because it was my dads. A: Marshall B. Lloyd (1858-1927) was an inventor and manufacturer. He opened Lloyd Manu-facturing Co. in Menominee, Mich., in 1907 and began mak-ing childrens wagons. In 1914 the company began making handwoven wicker baby carriages. Then in 1917 Lloyd was granted a patent for a method of making a wicker-like material by weaving twisted brown wrapping paper around metal wires. He also invented a loom that wove the material, making the process much faster than weaving by hand. Lloyd Loom fabric is the name of the woven material. In 1919 Lloyd sold the patent for the process to a British furniture manufacturer. Your baby carriage was made between 1917, when the patent was issued, and 1924, the year your father was born. Today these carriages are not considered safe to use with a real baby, so they usually sell to doll collectors or decorators. Its worth about $300. Q: I have a Coca-Cola serving tray that matches those I have seen online. Its from 1923 and pictures the Flapper Girl.Ž How can I tell if its a reproduction or an original? A: CocaColas early lithographed tin serving trays prob-ably are the most desirable of Coke col-lectibles. An original 1923 Coca-Cola serving tray is rectangular and measures 13 inches high by 10 inches wide. Its worth close to $400 if its in near-mint condition or better. Of course, most old trays arent near-mint, so even if yours is old, it probably wont sell for that much. Reproductions of this tray have been made since the 1970s, some even by the Coca-Cola Co. Some reproductions are round or oval, some may be marked with phrases like Reg. U.S. Patent Office,Ž and some may show a slightly altered image. Q: I have a wooden cigarette machine that once dispensed old packs of ciga-rettes, like Lucky Strike, for 15 cents. It doubles as a magazine rack. I know it was made sometime between 1929 and 1933. The label on it reads, Howard Home Humidor, this humidor and its contents are the property of C.B. How-ard Co., Inc.,Ž and includes an address in New York. What is its value? A: Your coin-operated combination cigarette dispenser and magazine rack probably was used in hotel lobbies or other places where a smoker might sit down to read a magazine and have a cigarette. Although its called a Home Humidor,Ž its unlikely someone would have a coin-operated cigarette dispenser in their home. C.B. Howard Co. made at least one other similar dispenser, a combination cigarette machine and end table. These date from about 1931. One sold a year ago for $300. Tip: Be careful when cleaning bronze figurines, lamp bases, bowls, etc. Never use steel wool, stiff brushes or chemi-cals. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

It’s not always smooth sailing. B2 X Palm Beach Opera will premiere “Enemies, A Love Story,” based on the novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer As survivors of the Holocaust go, Herman Broder walked away with no outward scars but a deep psychic gash. Juggling two wives, a mistress and a crying-outloud crisis of faith, he longs for a time when the universe was entirely silent.Ž Our fictional protagonist wanders through such messy relationships in a novel, a movie, a play and now, an opera „ scheduled to have its world pre-miere with Palm Beach Opera next season at the Kravis Center. Enemies, A Love StoryŽ is based on the 1966 book of the same name by Nobel Prize-winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. His book inspired a movie in 1989, and a play several years ago. Rife with misery, loss, melodrama and dark humor, this organic morality tale is set in New York in 1949. Herman Broders angst gains a sharper dimension in new music by Ben Moore and libretto by Nahma Sandrow. Thanks to The Coudert Institute, dozens of luncheon guests in Palm Beach recently got a chance to hear Moore and Sandrow describe their first collaboration and their first experience working on an opera. Moderator Daniel Biaggi, general director of the opera company, also showed the audience a video of one of the arias.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSAnchors awayA friend recently told me he plans to buy a sailboat, and I had to cover my mouth to hide my laugh. A sailboat?Ž I said incredulously. But you dont live anywhere near the ocean.Ž He looked away liked Id missed the point. Which is entirely possible „ when it comes to men and boats, Im forever in the dark. So its funny that this might be a predictor for my relationship compat-ibility, at least with men who have big sea expectations. In an interview for the book The Art of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do and How They Do It So Well,Ž the founders of OKCupid „ four mathematicians who put more stock in personality algorithms than face-to-face chemistry „ revealed the three ques-tions that most accurately predict long-term relationship success: Q Do you like horror movies? Q Have you ever traveled around another country alone? Q Wouldnt it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?I had to laugh at that last one. I see what theyre getting at, and Im sure it doesnt have much to do with a potential dates sea-worthiness. The question, Id guess, mea-sures how much a person values freedom versus stability, adventure over security. For a girl like me, you would think the answer would be obvious. But my hunch is that most people who answer yes to this question havent spent much time on a sailboat.My last stint on the water was a twoweek tour of the Caribbean with a man so handsome I had to squint to look at him. He had these big hands that he used to work the rigging (among other things). It should have been paradise. But this is what I remember: A day of choppy seas spent trying to hold down the tuna salad Id eaten for lunch. A windy afternoon when the boat heeled so far to the side I could dip my hand in the waves and I was sure we would founder. I remember seasickness and sun-burns and the ever-present fear that things were about to go disastrously wrong. Chuck everything and live on a sailboat? Not my idea of fun. But maybe Im being unfair. Perhaps Im misremembering that trip, in the way that we all misremember relationships when were trying to justify why we left a good thing. For every day of rough seas, we had three of smooth sailing. Even though we had gusty patches, most of the time the winds were just right. I spent a night or two lying awake, sure I could hear footsteps on deck, but most nights I slept an easy, water-rocked sleep. And there was that man, of course, who deftly steered us into the wind and kept us safe from harm. I remember a warm and clear night, the two of us in a dinghy motoring back to the boat. We had cleared the curve of the harbor and entered a darkness so complete Ive never seen its equal. Waves slapped the edge of the boat, and a shoal of stars winked down from overhead. In all the world, there was no place Id rather be. Is that what those OKCupid guys meant? Q „ Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried WidowŽ published by Simon and Schuster. artis e

On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its more confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of work-place criticism might say about your per-formance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldnt quite handle before. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Before you decide to close down a prob-lem-loaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) While you continue earning points for your sharp negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. Youll need to provide solid facts and figures to stay in the game. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But youll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, you might want to take some time to check out previously over-looked factors. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for your-self in the middle of a roiling emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide how to make decisions about your life. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feel-ings and re-establishing weakened rela-tionships. Its also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. BORN THIS WEEK: Your determination to stick with your principles wins the admiration of everyone who knows you.

NoThe Railway ManŽ begins the way many romances end: The boy ven-tures far to surprise the girl with whom hes com-pletely smitten, and they embrace hap-pily ever after. For Eric (Colin Firth) and Patti (Nicole Kidman), how-ever, things soon get notably hard-er. This is not a love story; its a tale of torture and betrayal, duty and honor, loyalty and hate. Based on Eric Lomaxs book and true story, its set in 1980 Great Britain. After their wed-ding, the rail-way-obsessed Eric experienc-es a flashback to when he was a prisoner of war in Thailand. Held by the Japanese and forced to build a railroad during World War II, Eric (as a young man played by Jeremy Irvine) is tortured when hes discovered with a radio. In 1980, his former platoon mate (Stellan Skarsgard) informs Eric that his torturer, Takashi (Tanroh Ishida when younger, then nicely played by Hiroyuki Sanada when older), is still alive, and revenge should be imminent. The premise is intriguing, but director Jonathan Teplitzky never finds the right balance between past and present, and the entire narrative suffers. Part of this is because we dont buy the love story. A timeline, or some suggestion of passage of time, would have helped. As is, it all happens too fast. Whats more, one must believe Patti would have noticed Erics PTSD breakdowns (and numerous little things, such as his being irresponsible with bills) prior to marrying him, but apparently not. Thus were left to wonder why she loves him so much, and its hard to feel sorry for her when Eric tries to kill a debt collec-tor with a bo x c utter. Later, in another moment of frustration for the viewer, Eric says hell do anything for his wife but then contin-ues refusing to confront the demons afflicting their marriage. Not that thats easy, but its hard to like someone who doesnt listen to himself. These modern actions are intercut with younger Eric and his infantry mates as they strategize, get caught and suffer. It is here that Erics intel-ligence shines and we grow to like him. When hes tor-tured, we feel for him (thankfully the torture isnt bloody or graphic, but it is intense). Structurally, Mr. Teplitzky would have been bet-ter off giving us young Eric and the ordeal first, and then showing Eric as an old man still affected by the torment. Cutting between the two storylines requires the actions in one timeline to complement the other, but far too often that effect is rendered moot by disparate events. Mr. Firths accent is thick and his performance is inconsistent, and Ms. Kidman looks like she just doesnt want to be there. That said, however, Erics decisions late in the film nicely high-light an often-overlooked element of victims and their abusers as the years pass. This isnt enough to make The Railway ManŽ worth running off to, but it does offer food for thought in a movie that doesnt do very much very well. Q w s h t t a dan >> A documentary of the meeting between the tormentor and the tortured — Takashi and Eric — called “Enemy, My Friend?” was released in 1995. Also that year, a television drama called “Prisoners in Time” starred John Hurt as Eric.

BEACH READING‘Dark Eden’ By Chris Beckett(Broadway Books, $15)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELL The Family lives on a planet of darkness, where the only light comes from the warm luminescence of the native plants and animals, and the untouchable glow of Starry Swirl high above. Long ago, two travelers were stranded here, and gen-erations later, their descendants are still waiting for rescue, content to live their small, orderly lives and wait obediently to be spirited away to the near-mythical homeland that none of them has ever seen: Earth. But as food becomes scarce and the stagnant rituals of Family life seem more and more stifling, restless young John Redlantern cant stop thinking about what could be out there beyond the cold moun-tains that ring their little valley. Gradually, grudgingly, he nudges his peoples aware-ness out of its long complacency, opening up minds and hearts to dangerous ideas and daring possibilities, setting in motion a momentous chain of events that will change the Family for good. With inventive language and interesting characters, Dark EdenŽ is a com-pelling and thought-provoking tale of human survival in a starkly non-human world. The planet of Eden is a simply gorgeous construction, an exotic night-world both beautiful and terrifying. The half-understood customs of the Familys Earth heritage have been transformed in unexpected ways by this alien place. But their desires and hopes, their impulses and their regrets remain unmistakably human, in ways that echo through the centuries to another long-ago Eden. Theres a deep shadow of sadness and loss, even a tinge of futility, overlying the story of these lonely castaways. Yet its countered by a growing flame of poten-tial and promise. The reader cant help but root for the Family to win its fight for survival „ even, and perhaps especially, against those dangers that come from within. Q Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches presents two “Victory at Sea” concerts SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMaestro, strike up the band. And he will do just that. The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches will present Vic-tory at SeaŽ in concert at the Duncan Theatre of Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth on Monday, May 12, and again at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on Friday, May 16. Both shows are at 7:30 p.m. Under the baton of Maestro Mark Humphreys, Victory at SeaŽ is the Sym-phonic Bands annual tribute to America and its armed services, with particular focus on the U.S. Navy this year. The program features excerpts from the soundtrack to NBCs groundbreak-ing 1950s documentary series Victory at Sea,Ž a magnificent setting of Eternal Father, Strong to SaveŽ (widely known as The Navy HymnŽ), an intricate suite of patriotic tunes entitled American PageantŽ from the Marine Band library and other works appropriate to the eve-nings theme. Tickets to either performance of Victory at SeaŽ (priced at $15) can be obtained by calling the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches at 832-3115. For more information, visit www. Q


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 B13 CONTRACT BRIDGEGood card-reading pays off BY STEVE BECKERThe backwardŽ finesse is a relatively rare play, but it can prove very effective when the setting is right. Consider this deal where West leads three rounds of diamonds against your four-heart contract. You ruff and play the jack of trumps, East taking the ace and returning a club. After winning the club and drawing trumps, you are faced with the prob-lem of avoiding a spade loser. Ordinarily, youd lead a low spade to the king, return a spade and finesse the jack. This line of play would succeed about half the time, but it fails in the present case because West has the queen instead of East. However, you should know from the bidding that playing the spades normally is sure to fail. After East turns up with the ace of hearts, West becomes marked with the queen of spades because he needs it for his opening bid, and also because East would not have passed one diamond with an ace and a queen in his hand. Under these circumstances, your best chance is to resort to a backward finesse. You begin by leading the jack of spades „ not the eight „ from your hand, planning to finesse if West follows low. If West covers with the queen, you win with dummys king, return a spade and finesse the eight. In the actual deal, the contract is made because East has the ten. Mathematically, the backward finesse is a poor play, because West will have the queen and East the ten only one deal out of four, whereas the simple finesse succeeds in one deal out of two. But when West is known to have the queen, the backward finesse offers the only realistic hope of making the contract. Q PUZZLE ANSWERS

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 The multimedia presentation was a year in the making, said founder Dale Coudert. A new American opera is rare, so we were anxious to host a program to let people in on a very dynamic process, the birth of a new work,Ž said Ms. Cou-dert, whose nonprofit institute dates to 2001. Patterned after the Aspen Insti-tute, of which she is a member, it pres-ents round-table discussions on culture, world affairs, science, philosophy and timely trends. Observing some of the intelligentsia of Palm BeachŽ in the audience, Mr. Biaggi said it is rare indeed for a region-al opera company to present a new American work. Essentially, thats what he told the creators a few years ago, after they staged a first-act workshop in New York and the complete work in 2011 in Louisville, Ky. (on a grant from Opera America). A year ago, local audiences showed interest in a con-densed version dur-ing Palm Beach Operas One Opera in One HourŽ outreach series. About that time, Mr. Biaggi hinted that Ene-mies, A Love StoryŽ might be the com-panys first premiere of a new American work. Presenting newŽ is risky, but then again, how long should an entire artistic genre be defined by characters created centuries ago, reflecting what used to be? Sanford SandyŽ Fisher, a seasonal resident of Palm Beach and prominent in cultural circles in Manhattan, com-missioned the opera eight years ago. He looked to Mr. Moore to compose music that would make opera more widely relatable. Mr. Moore had gained a reputation for a gorgeously lyrical styleŽ and easy tunefulness,Ž Mr. Biaggi said, quoting descriptions from both The New York Times, and Opera News. In an ironic coincidence, Mr. Biaggi learned the origin of the project years after the fact. When Mr. Biaggi joined Palm Beach Opera about four years ago, Mr. Fisher was a relatively new board member. Over lunch one day, Mr. Biaggi mentioned to Mr. Fisher the name of this new American opera being considered for One Opera in One Hour.Ž Sandy smiled at the name and said, I commissioned that opera. Now, we have a chance to present an opera about people still alive, not dead for centu-ries,Ž Mr. Biaggi said. Open to change With a cast, a director, an orchestra, a conductor and a set designer in place, the structure is well defined while the production remains fluid. We made changes even after One Opera in One Hour. In fact, we may still be changing even during rehearsals (with opera director Sam Helfrich),Ž Ms. Sandrow noted. Starring in the role of Herman is Canadian bass-baritone Daniel Okulitch, known on Broadway since 2002 when he played Schaunard in Baz Luhrmanns production of La bohme.Ž His first solo album in 2011, The New Ameri-can Art Song,Ž features world-premiere songs by several composers. Okulitch performed them at Carnegie Hall during the albums debut. Moore welcomes the expertise of Daniel Stern, who will conduct the orches-tra. The son of violinist Isaac Stern, he is the music director of the Israel Opera. The composer made it clear during the program that hes excited about so many moving partsŽ to the process: Every instrument has its own timbre. With a whole orchestra you can go so much broader (than just a piano) ... My mission has always been melody and lyricism. I react to the emotional impact. I look at the source, to see what is tugging at my heart,Ž said Mr. Moore, who credited Fisher for the underwrit-ing that got him started. His job, he said, is, find the best moments in the story and match them with my best tunes.Ž Getting used to opera Those tunes were the hook for Ms. Sandrow, an award-winning author who also writes for musical theater. With libretto, however, she was in virgin ter-ritory. Writing for opera took some getting used to,Ž she said: But Bens music is so melodic, you can sing his tunes in the shower. He had been working on this music for years, and he had a story. But what fascinated me about him is the melodies that pop into his mind.Ž Mr. Moore approached Ms. Sandrow in 2010 to write the libretto, and she began by immersing herself in Singers book, a novel which she said exists in the mind of Herman Broder, in his confusion about loyalties and loves. In the opera version, the women in his life became real-er and larger.Ž The opera is a valid nod to Singer and is very faithful to his story: We stayed true to (the author). I tried to give it the texture of the languages,Ž Ms. Sandrow said, referring to charac-ters who are understood to be speaking Yiddish, Polish and English. In English, a lot of cultural references are Christian in origin, though we dont necessar-ily notice it; in Yiddish, the references are to Jewish practice, so I seeded the libretto with quotations from prayers and psalms. Again, audiences will be able to enjoy the opera without noticing that at all.Ž Consequently, the work reflects the sensibilities of a Jewish intellectual, a Polish farm girl, and assimilated New Yorkers. Ms. Sandrows book, Vagabond Stars: A World History of Yiddish Theater,Ž is in its third printing and has been translated into numerous languages. She wrote the book for the musical Kuni-LemlŽ (winning the Outer Critics Circle Award). In addition to books, she has written lyrics for musical theater and narrative features on aspects of culture and travel. Her articles have appeared in newspapers, magazines and journals. She called the collaboration with Mr. Moore a good one. The pair worked regularly, employing a lot of selection and pruning.Ž Finding the humor Despite the broad brush of a story shaped around Holocaust survivors, EnemiesŽ has humor, even jokes. That requires a musical score that lets the audience discern the intended nuances, Ms. Sandrow said. In certain passages with stirring strings and vivid wood-winds, Mr. Moores lyric talents posed a challenge: Ben composes gorgeous, lush melodies. But if (the music) is too damn lush, you may not be able to hear the words ... sometimes Ben will alter a note so the line can be heard, or we compromise and the (artist) sings it twice. Its work-ing word by word to make every word sing-able,Ž Ms. Sandrow said. And you need to be able to get the jokes, too. This is a comedy.Ž After all, Herman is a ratŽ who scurries from woman to woman, which chal-lenged Ms. Sandrow to make him inter-esting.Ž At the same time, Moore reject-ed the idea of making him sympathetic. In Singers original tale, Herman is a Polish Jew, an intellectual who lands in New York believing that his wife, Tamara, and their children died in a concentration camp. Herman eluded capture because the couples maid, Yadwiga, a Catholic farm girl, let him hide in her fathers barn. Grateful to her, yet despondent over his lost family, he marries Yadwiga and descends into melancholy interrupted by fits of denial. He begins an affair with Masha, a Jew who survived the Holocaust. She becomes the mistress he cannot live without „ her own misery etched into the wallpaper of his adultery. Enter Tamara, who has survived the camp, after all, and is willing to help Herman battle his demons. Among them, his conflicts of faith „ obsessed with Masha, frustrated with a loveless existence based on gratitude to Yadwiga, and doubting God when he dwells on the over-arching loss of his own children and generations of Jewish families. During Mr. Biaggis presentation, he showed the poster promoting the opera „ a black and white scene of the main characters with the New York skyline in the background. If it conjures up a vibe of TVs Mad MenŽ when no one was angry, that was the point, as Manhattans atmosphere in the post-war years acted as something of a vise on Hermans state of mind. This is not your typical Holocaustsurvivor story „ it has satire,Ž Mr. Biaggi said. It was atypical in other genres, as well. When playwright Sarah Schulman adapted Singers novel into a play, it first ran at the Wilma Theatre in Philadel-phia in 2007. A critic for Temple News said at the time: Enemies ironically depicts human beings who are not heroic, not enlight-ened, struggling to cope with inexplica-ble experiences. As a result, the work is edgy, unpredictable and „ most impor-tantly „ deeply funny.Ž Referring to the lead character in his opera, Mr. Moore said, Herman was an intellectual ... hes no Tevye (the milk-man in Fiddler on the Roof).ŽComposer draws major singers The composers work has engaged singers such as soprano Deborah Voigt, mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham and Frederica von Stade, tenors Lawrence Brownlee and Robert White, baritone Nathan Gunn and five-time Tony win-ner Audra McDonald. He has written for art song, musical theater, cabaret, chamber music, choral music and comedy. In 2006, music publisher G. Schirmer Inc. released the volume, Ben Moore: 14 Songs. In a review, Classical Singer Magazine stated: ƒyou can find a breath of fresh air in the settings included in this volumeƒThis composer is not afraid of the past, but rather embraces many of the most beautiful aspects of his artistic heritage while imbuing his work with its own personal colors and tones.Ž Palm Beach Operas world premiere will bear the stamp of award-winning set designer Allen Moyer, a native of Pennsylv ania. Moyer has created sets for the Metropolitan Opera, New York Opera, San Francisco Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Seattle Opera, and Opera The-atre of Saint Louis. He also has worked on Broadway since 1996, designing sets for about 10 shows. He won an Obie Award in 2006 for the musical Grey GardensŽ (along with nominations for a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award); and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award in 1999 for That Championship Season.Ž Allen is one of the most famous scenic designers in the business,Ž Mr. Biag-gi said. This is really exciting, because we dont have any of this yet.Ž Mr. Moore and Ms. Sandrow live about 10 blocks apart on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, a world far removed from the one inhabited by the characters in their opera: I send him words (via computer),Ž Ms. Sandrow said. A week later, I go over and he plays them for me.Ž Q „ The world premiere of Enemies, A Love Story will be performed Feb. 20-22 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOWarmer weather calls for lighter, fruitier wines Its not as though its ever really cold in South Florida, but even we tend to lighten up a bit come spring. As winter menus of cream sauces and hearty roasts give way to dishes with a bounty of seasonal vegetables, more vinaigrettes and generally lighter ingredients, the change in what goes on the plate calls for something lighter to fill the glass as well. Try sauvignon blanc or albarino when serving a dinner salad topped with a grilled chicken breast or shrimp. (This works best with vinaigrette-based dressings, rather than creamy ones.) Fresh fruit needs acid as well as sugar to balance correctly. Wines with floral aromas like gewurztraminer work well with fruit, as does ros. Meats and vegetables done on the grill usually have fuller flavors and spices, so look for wines with more depth and bigger flavors for pairing, such as pinot noir, barbera and zinfan-del blends. Here are some wines I tasted recently that pair well with springtime foods: Wine Picks of the Week: Q Elena Walch Gewurztraminer Alto Adige Italy 2013 ($15): Light in body and straw yellow in color with honey, spice and floral essence on the nose, the aroma is followed onto the palate with fresh fruit, white flowers and almonds, and ends with a light acid on its lingering finish. Q Elena Walch Gewurztraminer Kastelaz Vineyard Alto Adige Italy 2012 ($30): Medium gold colored with a complex nose of floral, honey and smoke. The refined palate has orange peel flavors joined on the long finish with light oak and vanilla. Q Cambria Vineyards Bench Break Vineyard Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2011 ($28): Medium in color and full bodied with an elegant nose of apple, oak and vanilla. The pal-ate adds white peach, orange peel and rich round tropical flavors, and has a well-balanced acidity on its lingering finish. Q Cambria Bench Break Pinot Noir 2011 Santa Maria Valley ($28): Medium purple in color, showing cher-ries and berries and a touch of rose on the complex nose. The palate fills your mouth with blackberries and raspber-ries, merging with dark cherries and dark fruits, while the lingering finish shows a touch of acid and good tannic structure. Q Domaines Schlumberger Les Princes Abbs 2008 Alsace ($22): Medium straw color with a rich floral and honey nose and spice. The pal-ate is semi-dry with a fresh apple and nutty flavor, ending with a long finish. Q Hugel Gewurztraminer Alsace 2011 ($22): Very light in color with light and refreshing green apple, citrus and spice aromas and flavors, ending with a refreshing clean palate. Q KendallJackson Grand Reserve Char-donnay Cali-fornia 2012 ($15): Light straw color with lemon, smoke and a touch of oak on the nose. The palate has light citrus flavors and has a bal-anced finish with just a touch of acid. Q Momo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand 2012 ($16): Light in color and medium in body, the aroma is alive with citrus and green apple, which follow onto the palate mixed with lemon zest and grapefruit. The ending is brisk and clean. Q Robert Mondavi Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012 ($20): Medium yellow in color and body, this Napa clas-sic wine has apple and peach aromas that mingle on the palate with pear, green apple and a n utty end. The finish has light oak and good fruit, with a lingering flavor in your mouth. Q Murphy-Goode Homefront Red California 2011 ($12): A blend of syrah, merlot, petite sirah and zin-fandel, the nose has light blueberry and black cherry notes. The palate shows more blueberry flavor mixed with some white pepper at the end. Murphy-Goode is donating 50 cents per bottle to Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that provides assistance to families of service members. Q Paco & Lola Albarino Rias Biaxis Spain 2012 ($18): Bright straw yellow in color, with pear, citrus and floral notes on the nose. The smooth flavorful palate has apple and tropical fruits mixed with citrus, leading to the clean finish. Q Ronchi Terl Barbera dAlba Italy 2008 ($20): This medium-bodied wine starts with an impressive nose of berries, earth and smoke. The balanced palate features elegant black currant and cassis flavors and ends with a smooth oak and tannin finish. Q Sequoia Grove Napa Chardonnay 2012 ($28): Light straw color with a mix of lemon curd and lemon peel on the nose wound with a touch of smoke and vanilla. The aromas follow through onto the palate mixed with apple fla-vors and a floral essence, with vanilla and oak showing on the crisp, clean finish. Q Whispering Angel Chateau d Esclans Cotes de Provence Ros 2012 ($25): Light ros in color, the aroma of strawberries merges with cherry and mixed berries on the pal-ate, ending with a touch of spice on the creamy finish.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 1-7, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Barbecued half-chicken The Place: Blue Front BBQ, 1132 N. Dixie Highway, Lake Worth; 833-6651 or The Price: $12 The Details: Theres one thing you can say for Blue Front „ that tangy, slightly sweet sauce has remained the same. John Paladino, son of developer and musician David Paladino, has reopened the Blue Front, long a mainstay on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, at the Art Deco building that once housed Kristines and Jetsetter. The space is beautiful. And the food?Well, it doesnt disappoint.This chicken was smoked clear through in the smoker built off the patio area of the restaurant. The skin was a wonderful reddish mahogany hue, and the meat was tender and juicy. Our sides of collards and black-eyed pea salad were interesting takes on the classic dishes. The collards were cooked al dente with plenty of fla-vorful pork. The salad could have used a little more vinegar and a little less cilantro, but it was tasty. A second visit also found the St. Louis-style ribs worthy of ordering at this welcome addition to the Lake Worth dining scene. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE In a few short years, Christopher Slawson has gone from a word-of-mouth private chef to owning a restau-rant thats expanded twice in only three years. At Christophers Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens, he takes the concept of a plant-basedŽ restaurant to new levels. Vegetarian, vegan and raw foods are prepared to appeal to anyone. I think everyone wants to feel great,Ž Mr. Slawson said. Right off the bat, people want food that tastes good. No matter what youre making it has to taste good or people arent going to try it,Ž he said. But he says 85 percent of his customers are not vegetarians. Most of them consume animal products on a regular basis, but they come here because the foods fresh and they like the vibe. Ive had guys who tell me I was b-----and moaning because my wife dragged me down here. Now, theyre regular customers „ they come in for their juices in the morning or wraps at lunch.Ž Though several pro athletes are frequent diners, its mostly women who seek out the restaurant. The male cli-entele are not really as educated about food. Theyre accustomed to a meat-heavy diet. Once they learn that eating plants makes you feel great, then its OK.Ž Mr. Slawson, 31, didnt learn the diet from his parents, but adopted a vegetar-ian lifestyle in high school. After col-lege, he moved to Santa Monica, Calif., where vegan and other plant-based diets are the heartbeat of the area,Ž he said. I really connected with it.Ž He learned about a raw diet as well „ foods not really cooked. These are plant foods not heated beyond 115 degrees so as not to kill their living enzymes. As he learned more, he decided he wanted to open a restaurant. It was a home run for me „ it would be a way to get (the diet) out to the masses.Ž His family is in Florida, and he had some private clients he was making foods for here, along with those who wanted him to be their private chef, so he returned to South Florida. I had 25 clients I was making food for. It became too much work, so thats how Christophers Kitchen was born. The menu was an extension of the foods for a family I was working for.Ž He opened just as plant-based diets were garnering mainstream attention. It was really wild. You get lucky. The timing, when we opened, couldnt have been better,Ž he said. But its not only vegetarian, which sometimes includes dairy and eggs, or the stricter vegan (nothing but plant based foods) here. The reason were successful is we embrace all lifestyles of food. Were here to share, not to tell them what to eat. Its not conducive to the mission.Ž He sees a variety of diners come in to try the foods „ wraps, sandwiches, pizzas, salads and main dishes. Peoples food choices change all the time. You can have someone who says, Im going to eat fish for a week. Then the next time they come in, theyre eating steak. But theyre here. Were saying, Thats OK. Keep that coming and youre good.Ž The most popular things on the menu are the fresh juices he blends in house. Its a tie between Passion and Vitality. Passion is pineapple, strawberry, gin-ger, orange and trace minerals. Vitality has cucumber, pineapple, olive juice, and E3Live „ a wild algae thats been known to help autism, brain and liver function. Its a superfood. We sell it by the shot, too, and incorporate it into our juices.Ž CK tacos are another favorite. We make a tortilla shell from nuts, seeds and vegetables. Theyre dehydrated, then cut into the shell. Its labor inten-sive.Ž For this reason, some of the foods are more expensive than their mainstream counterparts, but Mr. Slawson doesnt feel the restaurant pricing is out of line. Everything on the menu is less than $20. You can come in and get a full meal with a fresh juice for $25.Ž The cold-pressed juices made daily feature six or seven ingredients each. We bottle everything ourselves. Its a lengthy, labor-intensive process.Ž Hes committed to the restaurant and its workers, as well. We believe in taking care of the people who work here, so that plays a role.Ž A private chef making this type of food would cost three times as much, he said. We have people who come in and dont want to spend $12 on a glass of fresh juice but theyll spend $20 on a glass of merlot.Ž Quality costs. You want the finer things, the best foods, its going to cost. We dont cut corners or compromise quality. Everything we have is 100 per-cent organic. We pay more for the base products and with labor involved, com-ing from my perspective, I think were really reasonable.Ž At the organic grill and wine bar next door, he expanded on the hot foods served at Christophers Kitchen. We have gourmet pizzas, pad Thai coconut curry „ we dont use any tofu or soy, though. We stay pretty clean with our foods. We bring it together flavor-wise with the sauces we use.Ž The wines served also are befitting the lifestyle „ either organic, sustain-able, or bio-dynamic or all three. We actually have a wine-tasting machine, you can get it by the ounce or half-ounce sample. You buy a card and put money on it, then buy what you want to try. Its a fun way to try a lot of different wines.Ž He likes that hes got a niche. It really comes down to living a plant-based lifestyle. We hear from customers theres nothing like this anywhere. How many plant-based kitchens do you see?Ž Hes happy for the success thats brought the grill room and a take-out spot, CK Express, next door. Were doing really well. Weve tried to listen to our customers and give them what they need and want. We hope to grow the business and open more locations „ thats the plan. Were thinking about opening a take-out concept in West Palm Beach.Ž Name: Christopher Slawson Age: 31 Original Hometown: Portland, Ore.
