As an absolutist monarch, Queen Marie cared little for the trou-bles of her poor and starving subjects. When confronted with the harshness of their life, she supposedly sniffed, ÂLet them eat cakeÂŽ (or ÂbriocheÂŽ in prop-er French). Queen MarieÂs wealth and power was emblematic of the superrich of her own era. If her dining table was empty of rolls, she had instead a piece of cake infused with b utter and eggs to satisfy her yen for carbs. The poverty-stricken who were breadless, hungry and homeless in the street had no such option. Her contemptuous response to the suffering of her people got her head chopped off; and thus the legend of her ill-considered reply is the classic metaphor for the arrogant conceit of pampered plutocrats who are clueless about the realities of life for the millions of families living outside their palace walls. It is a classic story but it turns out to be mostly fiction. Nonetheless, the phrase endures because the myth that surrounds it captures the arrogance and pitilessness of the powerful and rich toward the less fortunate. The Palm Beach Post recently reported on George WillÂs presentation before a large crowd at Palm Beach Atlantic University last month. The summary of his remarks by the Post got me thinking about Marie Antoinette and the famous quote. Will is a conservative intellectual who writes a column appearing twice weekly in The Washington Post and about 400 other newspapers. His sub-jects are foreign and domestic politics and public policy. According to the Post, Will quipped that for every ten immigrants allowed into the U.S., we should deport a ten-ured professor. It was a flippant way to make the point Âimmigrants bring ener-gy to this country, ÂŽ a positive statement if you overlook his presumption, that in order to achieve comparable worth, ten immigrants are needed to equal one aca-demic. His scornful reference to mas-ter educators was not very diplomatic either, considering there were probably a few in his audience; and it was also a disparaging snap at the hand that taught him, given the guy studied at Magdalen College, Oxford, and received MA and PhD degrees in politics from Princeton University. On issues of domestic policy, Will stated his belief Americans need to relinquish their attachment to prom-ises made to them by their government, including Medicare and Social Security. The Post quotes him as saying we need to fight Âgovernment intrusionÂŽ and Âgive back some of the promises Ameri-cans have learned to expect.ÂŽ It is the kind of Âfor your own goodÂŽ speech that makes you wary, especially when demands for deep sacrifices are inimical to your own economic well-being; and espoused by those least likely to suffer the consequence of the pain to come. It sounds like a ÂLet them eat cakeÂŽ dismissive parroted by a plu-tocracy that has not a care or a clue about the harsh economic realities faced by millions of low and middle income Americans. The hot breath of the radi-cal right supplies oxygen to their move-ment to make government the source of all the countryÂs problems, deflecting their own responsibility in creating with their greed the economic meltdown that almost brought the nation to its knees. Still, they are enormously successful here and elsewhere, killing publicly funded efforts to stimulate the economy or redress the legitimate grievances of people who lost their livelihoods, their homes, and their hope because of the economic chaos. The plutocrats have nothing but disdain for the long term unemployed who they say will only grow fat and lazy with the indolence such generosity breeds. Instead, they and Will propose we break the social contract that American history has proven is important if all Americans are to aspire to a decent standard of living. They sadly accept that the impover-ishment of millions of Americans is unavoidable. It is not the business of government to lift people out of poverty or keep them from destitution. Money spent so unwisely, says Will, steals the incentive of people to work, be self-reli-ant, creative, and independent. These are the pious justifications made by people to do nothing that know nothing about the despair in oneÂs heart when you are down to your last buck or you canÂt adequately provide for your family. George Will has it wrong: People living on minimum wage can teach him and his allies a thing or two about just how creative, self-reliant, and entre-preneurial you have to be to stretch a twenty-dollar bill until Andrew Jackson grins. They will tell you it is no piece of cake. And if Queen Marie still had her head, she would say itÂs a revolution in the making.

But someone else also is in an enviable position: Whoever chal-lenges her. The dynamics of the Democratic 2016 race so far feel more like an incumbent president clearing the primary field of any potential spoilers prior to a re-elec-tion bid rather than a wide-open nomi-nation contest. At this early juncture, the question is not so much who will be her opponent(s), but whether she will have any, or even one. She certainly should. Any serious Democrat with some gumption and ambition would be a fool to pass up the race based on the forecast of a Clinton coronation. Running against Hillary in 2016 is the greatest growth opportunity in the Democratic Party. Whoever runs against Hillary will, for at least some period of time, be the hot-test thing in American politics. On the cover of Time. Interviewed on all the Sunday shows. A figure of fascination whose every move is followed obses-sively by every political outlet in the nation. All of this happens right out of the gate. It would be a massive barrage of free advertising in exchange for the act of showing up. What politician with national aspirations wouldnÂt want such a prominent platform? What he or she would do with it is anyoneÂs guess. That would depend on the proficiency and message of the chal-lengerÂs campaign, but history suggests that it would more likely than not get some traction. As much as politics abhors a vacuum, the media hate a stale political narra-tive. Watching Hillary Clinton march unopposed to the Democratic nomina-tion would be nightmare of tedium for journalists who thrive on conflict and drama. The rooting interest of the press will be for someone to run against Hill-ary, and to make a real race of it. As a presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton 2.0 so far looks as though it will be like Hillary Clinton 1.0, only more so. Her campaign will operate on the basis of sheer blunt political force and cold hard cash. Its rationale will be inevitability and the history-making prospect of the first woman president. She is very unlikely to face anyone with the sheer political skill of Barack Obama, or with a narrative that fits the moment as precisely as his did in 2008. But she hasnÂt changed. Some of the same factors that accounted for her vulnerability last time havenÂt gone away: She lacks a deft political touch; the energy of the party is to her left; she has a resume, but not accomplishments; she is cautious to a fault. There will be a tendency among some Democrats to want to see Hillary spared the rigors of a competitive nomination battle. This is a mistake. The only thing worse for Democrats than Hillary get-ting roughed up in the primaries would be her getting nominated without any chance to exercise her atrophied politi-cal muscles. Whoever runs against her would in fact be doing her a kind of service, although surely an unappreciated one. And who knows? HillaryÂs prospective candidacy may look unbeatable, but sheÂs been inevitable before. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly c S w s n g rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly When cruel and unusual punishment becomes usualThe state of Oklahoma tortured a man to death last week. On Tuesday, April 29, Clayton Lockett was strapped to a gurney in the stateÂs execution chamber. At 6:23 p.m., before a room of witnesses that included 12 members of the media, the first of three drugs was injected into his veins. Ziva Branstetter, enterprise editor at Tulsa World, was among the reporters who watched. She later reported LockettÂs ordeal, minute by minute: Â6:29 p.m. LockettÂs eyes are closed and his mouth is open slightly. Â6:31 p.m. The doctor checks LockettÂs pupils and places his hand on the inmateÂs chest, shaking him slightly. ÂMr. Lockett is not unconscious,Â (Oklahoma State Peni-tentiary Warden Anita) Trammell states.ÂŽ BranstetterÂs detailed eyewitness account goes on: Â6:38 p.m. Lockett is grimacing, grunting and lifting his head and shoulders entirely up from the gurney. ... He appears to be in pain.ÂŽ Suddenly, the blinds were lowered, concealing the grim activity in the execu-tion chamber. The reporters were told to exit. Lockett was pronounced dead at 7:06 p.m. Branstetter said on the ÂDemocracy Now!ÂŽ news hour, ÂWe were told by the Department of Corrections last night that they havenÂt even determined that this qualified as an execution, because he died of a heart attack 43 minutes later.ÂŽ Most Oklahoma executions last about six min-utes. Department of Corrections Director Robert Patton later explained, ÂHis vein exploded.ÂŽ Oklahoma had never used this particular Âlethal cocktailÂŽ before: midazolam, a sedative; vecuronium bromide, to stop respiration; and potassium chloride, to stop the heart. Charles Warner was sched-uled to be killed on the same day as Lock-ett. After the horrifically botched execution of Lockett, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin issued a 14-day stay of execution for Warner. Announcing a review of lethal injections, Fallin said on Wednesday that Âthe state needs to be certain of its pro-tocols and procedures for executions and that they work.ÂŽ While the review she has ordered will include an autopsy of Lockett by an independent pathologist, the overall review is being conducted by a member of her cabinet, so its indepen-dence is being questioned. Lockett and Warner had sued Oklahoma, claiming that the secrecy surrounding the source of the drugs and the execu-tion cocktail violated their constitution-al rights. One Oklahoma judge agreed and issued a stay last month. Justices of the Oklahoma Supreme Court ulti-mately agreed and issued their own stay of execution on April 21. On April 22, Gov. Fallin, claiming the Supreme Court had no jurisdiction, ignored the stays and rescheduled the executions to April 29. The next day, the Supreme Court rescinded its stay, stating that the inmates do not, in fact, have the right to know the chemicals to be used in their execution. ÂAfter weeks of Oklahoma refusing to disclose basic information about the drugs for tonightÂs lethal-injection pro-cedures, tonight, Clayton Lockett was tortured to death,ÂŽ said Madeline Cohen, attorney for the other condemned man, Charles Warner. ÂThe state must disclose complete information about the drugs, including their purity, efficacy, source and the results of any testing. Until much more is known about tonightÂs failed experiment of an execution, no execution can be permitted in Oklahoma.ÂŽ LockettÂs botched execution follows on the heels of a similar debacle in Ohio. On Jan. 16, Dennis McGuire was sub-jected to a two-drug cocktail. His son, also Dennis, witnessed the ordeal: ÂMy dad began gasping and struggling to breathe. I watched his stomach heave. I watched him try to sit up against the straps on the gurney. I watched him repeatedly clench his fists. It appeared to me he was fighting for his life, but suffocating. The agony and terror of watching my dad suffocate to death lasted more than 19 minutes.ÂŽ There are many more such stories. States are desperate for the execution drugs, as pharmaceutical companies in Europe refuse to sell to state govern-ments in the U.S. any chemical that might be used in an execution. The Colorado Independent obtained email documents showing the assistant Oklahoma attorney general joking with a Texas colleague that he might be able to help Texas get the drugs in exchange for 50-yard line tickets for a top college football game. The Death Penalty Information Center lists 144 people who have been exoner-ated from death row since 1973. These are innocent people who might have been executed. An article published in the respected Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, released just a day before LockettÂs execution, suggests that more than 4 percent of all death-row pris-oners would be exonerated, given enough time to properly review their cases. Even in cases where guilt is not in question, an argument can be made on a purely finan-cial basis. It costs three to four times more to execute a prisoner than it does to incar-cerate for life with no chance of parole. Most developed nations have banned capital punishment. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder in continu-ing this barbaric practice with countries like China, Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia. As states commit atrocious experiments on prisoners like Lockett, it is vital to remember that the Constitution prohib-its cruel and unusual punishment. Sadly, cruel and unusual is becoming more and more usual. Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Pets of the Week PET TALESChicken talesKeeping chickens as pets and egg-layers is a popular pastime, but itÂ’s a good idea to know what youÂ’re getting into BY DR. TONY JOHNSONUniversal UclickAbout three years ago, my wife and I ÂhappenedÂŽ upon some chickens. A family friend had gotten caught up in the recent rage of urban chicken acquisition and had obtained six chickens. They had forgot-ten to obtain any housing for them, so we offered to help out and take three of the birds. We read up on chicken husbandry, built a coop and drove over to bring home our new flock in cat carriers. HereÂs the upside to chicken ownership:Â€ Great, fresh eggs, every day (on average, each chicken lays one egg per day). Â€ No need to buy eggs anymore Â„ a cost savings, and we know our chickens are humanely treated. Â€ Fun for the kids to watch (us, too Â„ chickens are hilarious goofballs). Â€ Easy disposal of our kitchen waste Â„ they eat everything (as long as itÂs not moldy or an avocado; avocados are chicken kryptonite). With two 2-year-olds at home, we have lots of leftover ÂI wonÂt eat that!ÂŽ food. Now, hereÂs the downside:Â€ They are noisy: They squabble and fight like junior-high girls at the FileneÂs Basement shoe sale rack. Sometimes, I have to go out back and shout a loud: ÂSHHHHHHHH! If you donÂt shut up, I am calling The Colonel!ÂŽ Â€ Poo. Everywhere. ThereÂs no way to potty train a chicken, and no such thing as a chicken diaper. We let them out for some fresh air and bug-eating, and they poo. A lot. Everywhere. Â€ Although ours have tested negative for salmonella, I do worry about our familyÂs exposure to it, given the large amount of poo around. (More on this below.) Â€ We will never, ever have nice landscaping. In their obsessive quest to find the juicy bugs and worms, they dig up everything. Then, for good measure, they poo on it. Chickens have become a feathery emblem of the Ânew naturismÂŽ Â„ if you fancy yourself a self-sustaining, eco-mind-ed person, a wee flock is de rigueur these days. And, like many fads, the initial rose-tinted joy soon fades to reality. Chickens can carry salmonella and a few other bacterial baddies. These can do a number on your GI tract and really put a hurting on you if youÂre very young, very old or have weakened immunity. If you get it, youÂll be hugging the commode for a few days, or worse. We constantly clean up after them, and even then I feel like we always have some poo lying about. Washing hands after han-dling them or the eggs is a must. Here is some CDC info on safe home chicken ownership: blogs.cdc.gov/publichealth-matters/2010/10/thinking-about-keeping-live-poultry Another great source of information and support is the community at Backyard Chickens: www.backyardchickens.com. Egg handling is important, too. There is a healthy debate about washing the eggs: Some say it removes an invisible slime layer that keeps bacteria out, while some say to wash them. Since we eat them as soon as we collect them, we donÂt wash our eggs (unless they are really dirty), but just wipe them off. Here is a link to safe egg-handling information: www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/foodnut/09377.pdf. The life of a chicken owner is easy, delicious and fun. ItÂs a great way to lessen your eco-footprint and teach your kids where their food comes from. But you donÂt want to get halfway into it and say to yourself, ÂWhat the CLUCK were we thinking?ÂŽ With a little prep, a little reading and a little precaution you, too, can safely enjoy all the benefits of having your own flock! Q Â„ Guest columnist Tony Johnson, DVM, is an emergency and critical care specialist and serves as minister of happiness/medical director at Veterinary Information Network.Chickens eat bugs and weeds in your yard, generate great fertilizer and even make your breakfast. Mothers are so busy taking care of everyone else that they often ignore their own health, but, like everyone else, you need regular checkups including screenings for: Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Cancer.

Q A South Wales ice cream maker (ÂLick Me IÂm DeliciousÂŽ) announced in April that it has perfected an ice cream containing about 25mg of Viagra per scoop (though it is not yet generally avail-able). Q In January, LondonÂs Daily Telegraph found three British companies in competition to sell deodorant supposedly made especially for womenÂs breasts. Accord-ing to one, Fresh Body, ÂWeÂre replacing ÂswoobsÂ Â„ dreaded boob sweat Â„ with smiles.ÂŽ Q Owner Christian Ingber recently opened a sandwich shop in Gothenburg, Sweden, named ÂA F***ing Awesome Sandwich.ÂŽ An American expatriate told StockholmÂs The Local news service that Swedes think English Âcurse wordsÂŽ are Âcute and charming.ÂŽ Science fairQ ChinaÂs Chengdu Commercial Daily reported in March that Liu Yougang, 23, finally had surgery to remove that whistle he had swallowed when he was 9. He had been experiencing worsened breathing Â„ and had been making Âshrill whistle soundsÂŽ nightly after falling asleep. Q LondonÂs Daily Star featured Sarah Beal, 43, of Arley, Warwickshire, England, in a March story demonstrating her skin condition in which writing words on her skin makes it puff up for about an hour before it recedes. It is referred to by doc-tors as the ÂEtch A Sketch conditionÂŽ (formally, dermatographia), and despite occasional pain, she described it as ÂcoolÂŽ and a Âparty trick.ÂŽ Q Cornell University graduate student Michael Smith, disappointed at the pau-city of research on the pain of honeybee stings, decided to evaluate the stings him-self (but in line with the Helsinki Declara-tion of 1975 on safe self-experimentation).

So Much More Than Medicine County History Institute receives achievement award SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Palm Beach County History Institute, a consortium of local nonprofits, will receive an outstanding recognition in organizational achievement by the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation at its annual conference. The award recognizes outstanding examples of preservation of architectural, archaeological and cultural resources in Florida. Founded in 2009 by the education directors at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, Flagler Museum, Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens and Jupiter Inlet Light-house and Museum, the PBCHIÂs goal is to educate teachers about Palm Beach Coun-tyÂs history, architecture and culture. As the first of its kind in South Florida, this innovative collaboration evolved out of a need to bring the experiences of visit-ing these historic sites to the classroom in response to decreased local field trip fund-ing. The Institute hosts a series of sum-mer workshops at historic sites throughout the county, offering teachers personalized training through tours, lectures and panel discussions with an emphasis on integrat-ing local history into a variety of subjects. Teachers who complete the requirements receive up to 28 in-service points toward the renewal of their teaching certificates through the School District of Palm Beach County. ÂIt is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the Florida Trust for the excep-tional partnership of the PBCHI,ÂŽ said Tony Marconi, education curator of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County and chairman of the PBCHI, in a prepared statement. ÂCombining our resources allows us to provide innovative curriculum to enhance the studentsÂ learning of local history. We hope other organizations in the state can use this model to create a lasting impact on teachers, students and commu-nities.ÂŽ The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, May 16, at the Florida Trust for His-toric PreservationÂs conference in Tampa. The next PBCHI for local teachers will be held June 16-20. For more information, call 832-4164, ext. 104, or visit www.historical-societypbc.org. Q

COMMENTARYSummer campToo often, parents and grandparents simply accept the status quo when it comes to imprisoning their children in summer camps. They commonly buy themselves a kidfree week by shuffling their young charg-es off to the usual art camp or science camp or music camp or nature camp or sports camp, without ever considering a more worthy alternative. They might even do it two or three times a summer, on each occasion patting themselves on the back for being good parents. But I want to suggest a much more relevant option: the Issues Camp. Since nobody has come forward to outline such a camp, I will do it here, for free. The Issues Camp provides children a hands-on opportunity to safely experi-ence the adult world into which they will soon charge headstrong and self-righteous. The Issues Camp will allow them to experience the activities of adults who were once children, too, but never had such an opportunity for camp, and are now running our world. HereÂs how the camp is organized for a five-day period.Issues Camp, Days 1 & 2: Governance.Children will practice the key skills required to carry on as federal, state, county or city elected officials. On these important days they will learn to shake hands (this is also good exer-cise, especially after shaking hands 300 times in a hot sun); accept lavish treat-ment from lobbyists (such treatment will include fine meals, special deals on vaca-tion homes or cars, future employment for family members, and future income-producing opportunities, all in return for favors); accept bribes under the table, in which children are taught the basic skills required to pass $100 bills back and forth under the table without dropping them, or being seen; and decision making. As future decision makers, children will learn such crucial skills as commissioning a lengthy study, ordering a closed meet-ing, accepting public records requests with open smiles and then shredding the requested records electronically as well as physically Â„ or simply refusing to pro-vide them until they are sued. To round out this important portion of Issues Camp, children will be given a short course in the art of blame, titled, ÂHow To Blame The Media.ÂŽ Here, they are taught to mutter two wo rds Â„ Âthe mediaÂŽ Â„ in an accusatory tone that suggests both nauseated disgust and the detection of a sudden highly unpleas-ant odor, all while shaking their heads in a negative fashion and pointing their fingers. They are also taught key expressions, including Âthe liberal media,ÂŽ or Âthe one-sided media,ÂŽ or even such historic termi-nology as Âthose muckrakers.ÂŽIssues Camp, Days 3 & 4: The Environment.This important two-day introduction to official stewardship of FloridaÂs natural places can be conducted in one of sev-eral locations, depending on the expertise or preferences of camp counselors and instructors. Staff will be specially chosen either from the retired ranks of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or from private industry. For example, veteran instructors might hail from the management teams of the Fanjul Brothers, owners of Domino Sugar and Florida Crystals; or the Dan A. Hughes Co., oil prospectors from Hous-ton, Texas; or Collier Resources, own-ers of the mineral rights on more than 800,000 acres of land in and around the western Everglades; or the Deseret Cattle & Citrus ranch near St. Cloud, with the largest poop-producing cow herd in the United States (more than 45,000, produc-ing 33,000 calves a year, according to some reports). ThatÂs to name just a few. The Dumping Hour: Typically, students will gather either along the Kissim-mee River near its mouth just north of Lake Okeechobee, or on the Indian River Lagoon SystemÂs St. Lucie River east of Lake Okeechobee, or at the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee River on the west side of the lake for what the Issues Camp will call, the ÂDumping Hour.ÂŽ This is very likely to be a favorite among both students and staff. During the Dumping Hour Â„ which may, in fact, last several years or decades Â„ each student will be positioned on the riverÂs edge and supplied with 50-gallon drums of liquid phosphorous, liquid nitro-gen, a variety of water soluble pharma-ceuticals, containers of traditional house-hold septic waste and big bags of trash. Following the instructorÂs count of ÂOne, Two, THREE-STANDS-FOR-INDUSTRY,ÂŽ each student will dump the contents of his or her barrel into the water.Issues Camp, Day 5: Development.During this final day of Issues Camp, students will be taught the rudimentary skills required to drive a bulldozer. They will also be given hands-on demonstra-tions in the laying of asphalt, in which students ride with instructors who allow them to pull the release levers as asphalt is spread across the earth. In the bulldozer portion of the day, each student will be asked to sit in the driverÂs seat, lower a massive bucket, put the machine in gear, and drive it forward through an actual patch of native scrub, provided for each student enrolled in Issues Camp. Students are required to remove such anti-development, anti-business, anti-jobs species as saw pal-metto, scrub oak, gopher tortoises, new-growth cypress, scrub-jay habitat and the like. Future Issues Camp courses will teach the art of building large, dense develop-ments on lands where local-government codes restrict them. By enrolling your child or grandchild in such a camp, you can help provide him or her with real-world skills and an understanding of the realities behind them, presented in an environment full of bonhomie and the warm approval of adults who will be both supportive and very knowledgeable guides to a prosper-ous Florida future.

For Mr. Tucker, joining the group seemed like a natural thing to do. ÂI saw an article that some people were meeting to form an Honor Flight hub. I hadnÂt heard of the organization at that point,ÂŽ he said. He attended that meeting and was hooked. ÂI signed up to go as a guardian and ended up going on the second trip and was absolutely blown away by the expe-rience and the mission,ÂŽ he said. Honor Flight made its first trip, from Ohio, in May 2005, soon after the memo-rial was completed. The Southeast Flor-ida chapter, formed in 2008 to serve the stateÂs Treasure Coast, has grown to include Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Palm Beach counties. These World War II veterans, who are in their 80s, 90s and beyond, join other vets on a commercial flight to Washington. Once they arrive in the capital, they receive a heroÂs welcome. ÂThe arrival is where the veterans start to understand that this is going to be much more than just a trip to see some stones and some granite,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. Other veterans and dignitaries are on hand to greet them as they exit the plane. ÂThey know some sort of surprise is in store for them,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. A Marine Corps brass band plays, Âand thousands are there to greet them,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. ÂThey are filled with tears of pride and joy.ÂŽ And for the volunteers who accompany the veterans? ÂItÂs overwhelming. IÂve been on every trip but one. You never get used to that,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. ÂIt really renews your faith in all the things that are good in our country.ÂŽ The veterans have lunch, tour the monuments and fly back the same day. As they near the end of the flight, they have mail call, with letters and cards from family members and friends thank-ing the veterans for their service. ÂItÂs one of the most emotional parts of the trip. We donÂt tell the veter-ans in advance that weÂre doing that. When they get those letters, particularly from grandkids and great grandkids, the plane is usually awash in tears,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. It reminds him of the veterans in his family. ÂI had a lot of my uncles that did serve in World War II, and my grandfa-ther on my momÂs side served in World War I,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. ÂI didnÂt learn to appreciate that until I was grown. It wasnÂt until after I became an adult that I appreciated who those the guys were.ÂŽ People have been generous with their money and their time, but many mem-bers of the Greatest Generation are not Web-savvy or may be in assisted living and nursing facilities. ÂWeÂre having a difficult time reaching some of the World War II veterans and we know there are thousands we havenÂt reached,ÂŽ he said, making one request: ÂIf you know a World War II veteran or if you are a World War II veteran, please contact us.ÂŽ The journey to Washington includes bus transportation, meals, T-shirts, and other amenities required to trav-el comfortably. Disabled veterans are also welcome; with advanced arrange-ments, complimentary wheelchairs, oxygen and medical staff will be avail-able. Honor Flight also encourages friends and family members of these veterans to be on hand at the airport to wel-come them home. Next flight is May 24, and the group plans flights June 5-7 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day. More than 16 million men and women served in the U.S. military during World War II. Of them, only about 1.2 million remain, and theyÂre dying at a rate of 550 a day, according to The National World War II Museum. That makes the work of Honor Flights all the more urgent. ÂWe had a 99-year-old on the last flight and weÂve had a 101-year-old vet, I think. WeÂve had several 99-year-olds,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. At one point, Honor Flight had a long waiting list for vets, but that list has shrunk. ÂIf you put an application in today, you have a pretty good chance of get-ting in in the fall,ÂŽ Mr. Tucker said. ÂWe have the planes, we have the funding, we have the know-how. All we need is you.ÂŽ Q HONOR FLIGHTFrom page 1 >> What: Honor Flight >> When: Flights from South Florida are scheduled for May 24, June 5-7, Sept. 20 and Oct. 25. >> Info: 855-FLY A VET (855-359-2838) or info@honor ightse .org COURTESY PHOTOVeterans gather at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., during the April 26 Honor Flight to the capital.

The 12th annual Palm Beach Coun-ty KDW Classic is set for Saturday, May 31. The event is produced by the West Palm Beach Fishing Club and generally attracts more than 200 boats and nearly 1,000 anglers each year. The Classic is a family-and-friends-oriented event offering a wide range of prizes for adults and kids. Even those who donÂt catch a fish can win money and prizes. ÂEveryone seems to really enjoy how we produce the event,ÂŽ said Pete Schulz of Fishing Headquarters in Jupiter, who is chairman of the WPBFC and serves as the tournament weigh-master. ÂThe captainÂs meeting, the weigh-in and the awards party are all very entertaining. We even have an online photo contest.ÂŽ Photos can be submitted the week of the tournament at #KDWCLASSIC. Broad-based support from sponsors and an ongoing commitment to give something back to the local commu-nity contribute to the KDW ClassicÂs ongoing success, organizers said. Past tournament proceeds have been used to create new artificial reefs, install reef saving mooring buoys, support the Riv-iera Beach scholarship fund and aid the annual KidÂs Fishing Day program pro-duced by the fishing clubÂs charitable affiliate, the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation. The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County has been the KDW ClassicÂs presenting sponsor since the beginning. Numerous other sponsors participate in the event by underwriting the cash awards, providing raffle items and other tournament giveaways. More than $32,000 in guaranteed cash priz-es, regardless of the number of boats entered, and more than $30,000 in raffle items and trophies are up for grabs. The tournament prize format is designed to spread the wealth. Prize-winning paychecks are offered eight places deep for kingfish, dolphin and wahoo, and 10 places for junior anglers. ÂOur cash award sponsors make that happen,ÂŽ said tournament committee member Bud Tyska of TuppenÂs Marine & Tackle. ÂLuck is another factor that is part of our tournament philosophy. The ClassicÂs ÂBig Fish WinsÂ format keeps luck a significant part of the winning formula. ÂAnybody can luck into that one big fish. Plus, by not offering aggregate catch awards weÂre not putting as many fish on the dock. We donÂt want to pro-mote excessive fishing practices.ÂŽ Mr. Tyska said. A change in this yearÂs rules will allow participants to visually check out and depart from one of three inlets: Jupiter, Palm Beach or Boynton Beach. ÂOur intention is to make the event more convenient for participants. If they have fish to weigh they will still need to visually check back in with the committee boat inside Palm Beach Inlet at the end of the day,ÂŽ said Mr. Schulz. There are many other ways to win in the KDW Classic. Every registered boat is eligible for significant prizes valued at over $1,000. All junior anglers are eligible for one of the Junior Treasure Chest prizes, 15 $100 bills. And, every boat entered in the tournament is eligi-ble for the $2,000 ÂHit the Jackpot!Â cash prize, awarded by a randomly drawn boat number. Winners must be pres-ent at the awards party and must show their official boat number to collect the prize. The male and female angler lucky enough to weigh-in the heaviest fish of the tournament will be crowned the king and queen of the classic by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County. Anglers can register for the tournament online at www.kdwclassic.com. Prior to May 22, the tournament entry fee is $175 for WPBFC members and tenants at Riviera Beach Marina, New Port C ove, Old Port C ove, N orth Palm Beach Marina and the Palm Beach Yacht Center. For all others, the early entry fee is $200 per boat if paid by May 22. After May 22, all boat entries are $275. For additional tournament information, call the WPBFC at 832-6780. Q
A12 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYA woman called her husband at the office. He answered brusquely. ÂIÂm busy. Is this important?ÂŽ Now, depending on the couple, or the given week, or the given day, this interac-tion could be met with a broad range of reactions: She might react by saying to herself: ÂHe sounds upset. I know he had that important meeting with his biggest client. I hope it went well. HeÂll fill me in later.ÂŽ Or she might say: ÂI donÂt know why I bother to call him. He never takes the time to talk to me.ÂŽ Or: ÂHeÂs so full of himself. He thinks his job is so important, and what I do is so insignificant.ÂŽ As the above scenario depicts, the way you are feeling about yourself and the way that you feel about your partner dramati-cally impacts the way you will interpret their words and behavior. The woman who believes her marriage is in a secure place will probably give her husband the benefit of the doubt, assuming an abrupt tone means he is worried or upset. She will not feel criticized or attacked.John Gottman, a nationally acclaimed relationship expert, revolutionized the study of marriage after many years of rig-orous scientific research, which included observing volunteer couples behind two-way mirrors. In fact, his team was able to predict which couples were going to make it (or get divorced) in 91 percent of the cases.According to Gottman, most committed relationships start off with a high degree of positive interactions and a sense of true friendship. Despite the inevitable disagreements and irritations of everyday life, these couples are able to main-tain what is referred to as Âpositive senti-ment override.ÂŽ This means that the posi-tive thoughts about the relationship and each other are so pervasive they tend to supersede the negatives. They feel hope-ful and secure about their lives together and assume the best in nebulous circum-stances. It would take a very significant conflict for them to lose their equilibrium as a couple. Over time, frustration and resentment can build to a point that the couple loses their sense of friendship and camaraderie. If an estrangement becomes more pro-nounced, they might insidiously slide into Ânegative sentiment override,ÂŽ whereby the littlest perceived slights become major obstacles and molehills become moun-tains. They may next ascribe negative intentions that may not have been there at all. The husband might say: ÂOops, I forgot to pick up the dry cleaningÂŽ and she says: ÂIÂm not surprised. You show no inter-est in what goes on in this house.ÂŽ She interprets his forgetfulness to mean he doesnÂt care about her anymore or that he DELIBERATELY didnÂt run the errand. The battle heats up. Gottman discovered that successful couples regularly employ what is techni-cally called Ârepair attemptsÂŽ Â„ statements or actions to let the other know they are sorry and want to make things right. When couples are in a good place they may naturally know how to humor or coax their partner out of a bad mood. When couples are not in a good place, they may have to make concerted attempts to reach out in a way that is well received. For repair attempts to be effective, each partner must be willing to let go of an indignantly entrenched place to be recep-tive to the otherÂs good intentions. Other-wise, they might take turns reaching out or rebuffing the other, with no clear reso-lution. The research also emphasizes that when unhappy couples are able to openly discuss and acknowledge positive aspects of their partner and the relationship, they are often able to eventually strengthen their bond. Research has shown that the partners who turn ÂtowardÂŽ each other rather than away are building an emotional bank account of good will. The demands and challenges of everyday life can become so absorbing that we are not always mindful and attentive to the important daily con-cerns of our loved ones. Making it our business to ask how an important meeting went, or listening with interest when our partner relates a story (and following up the next day to ask what happened) shows interest and caring. So many of us get so absorbed in our television shows, emails or video games that we unintentionally send out a message of disinterest. Not surprisingly, the research confirmed that people who knew the most about their loved onesÂ inner worlds, were the ones who had the most rewarding relationships. It becomes very clear that some couples can remain close, even though they are facing major disagreements. Gridlock occurs when two people are entrenched in diametrically opposed positions; trying to convince the other to come around. Letting go of this notion, and accepting that they may never totally agree about the best solution, paves the way for col-laborative problem solving. What sets these couples apart is that they com-municate respect and appreciation, even when they are struggling to come up with solutions. In our romantic relationships, it is not surprising for people who are angry and critical to still carry deep longings to return to an earlier time of tenderness, comfort and passion. It can seem like a huge emotional risk to reach out to a frosty partner, asking to open a dialog, especially when weÂre feeling hurt, angry or uncertain. Sometimes, we may have trouble doing so without outside support. But, so importantly, our partner is often the very person who will ultimately be able to help us heal our deepest hurts.

Repair begins with one talkGlaucoma drug helps women with blinding disorder linked to obesity NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHAn inexpensive glaucoma drug, when added to a weight-loss plan, can improve vision for women with a disorder called idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health. IIH, also called pseudotumor cerebri, predominantly affects overweight women of reproductive age. An esti-mated 100,000 Americans have it, and the number is rising with the obesity epidemic. The most common symp-toms are headaches and visual prob-lems, including blind spots, poor side vision, double vision and temporary episodes of blindness. About 5-10 per-cent of women with IIH experience disabling vision loss. ÂOur results show that acetazolamide can help preserve and actually restore vision for women with IIH, when com-bined with a moderate but comprehen-sive dietary and lifestyle modification plan,ÂŽ said Dr. Michael Wall, a professor of neurology and ophthalmology at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. The trial was funded by NIHÂs National Eye Institute, and coordinated by the Neuro-Ophthalmology Research Disease Investigator Consortium. The results were published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Asso-ciation, and will be presented during the Clinical Trials plenary session of the American Academy of Neurology meet-ing in Philadelphia. Acetazolamide (Diamox) is best known as a glaucoma drug. It has been commonly prescribed for IIH, but with-out much evidence that it helps. The IIH Treatment Trial tested the benefits of acetazolamide plus a weight loss plan versus the weight loss plan with a placebo pill, over six months. Patients in both treatment groups had improved vision, but those receiving the drug had the greatest improvement. All patients were allowed to take headache medi-cations throughout the trial, and both groups experienced a similar reduction in headache. ÂThe vision problems associated with this condition can be extremely debili-tating, at significant cost to patients and the health care system. Yet there are no established treatment guidelines. We made it a priority to develop an evidence-based treatment for helping patients keep their vision,ÂŽ said Eleanor Schron, Ph.D., director of clinical appli-cations at NEI. IIH is named for one of its key physical findings Â„ an increased pressure within the fluid-filled spaces inside and around the brain. This in turn can cause swelling and damage to the optic nerves that connect the eyes to the brain. A 5-10 percent weight reduction appears to improve symptoms for many patients, but can be difficult to achieve and main-tain. Acetazolamide is known to reduce fluid production in the brain, and is often used as an add-on therapy. In severe cases, surgical procedures may be used to relieve pressure on the optic nerve. Another strength of the study was the weight loss program, he said. The New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center designed the program to achieve moderate, sustainable weight control with an emphasis on changing lifestyle, as opposed to just dieting. The trial will follow participants for five years to gauge whether theyÂre able to maintain a healthy weight and control their symptoms over the long term.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 A13 Doctor, ÂWhat is this balloon sinus business IÂve been hearing about?ÂŽ In sunny south Florida springtime is year Â“roundÂ” and there is always something growing and blooming. As such, people with allergies and chronic sinus problems can be miserable 24/7. Then add moisture and humidity to the mix and you have the perfect storm for fungus and mold. ItÂ’s no wonder that everyone living in this tropical paradise isnÂ’t sick with allergies and sinusitis! We all try over the counter antihistamines, (Zyrtec, Allegra, Claritin), decongestants (Sudafed, pseudoephedrine), and nose sprays to dry up the drainage, unblock our noses and clear our heads, unfortunately, when these remedies fail itÂ’s time to see your physician. If the drain-age is clear a shot of steroids or topical nasal steroids are the next line of defense. I tell my patients there are two ways to treat the allergic nose, medications for the symptoms and if that fails, an allergy work up with shots to try and get at the cause of the allergies for relief. However, when the nasal mucous turns yellow, green and/or bloody, its time to seri-ously examine those cavities in your skull: the sinuses. At this point you should be visiting your friendly ENT doctor who can correlate your symptoms, cultures, & CAT scan, with what is seen on endoscopic exam of your nose. When your symptoms are recurrent and resistant to multiple medical treatments, it means your sinuses are blocked and unable to drain. Today, with the marvels of computer-ized x-rays, tiny telescopes and balloons, we can not only drain your sinuses in the office but also provide a permanent cure for sinus headaches, chronic sinusitis, nasal blockage and polyps!

These surfaces are easily accessible to the hygienist, and their geometry is easy to manage.When you have gingivitis (first stage of gum disease), or the more advanced stages called periodontitis, the disease has migrated down into, and below, the gum line. It takes special-ized instruments and a greater skill set to remove bacteria and debris at this depth.These dental instruments are designed to aid the practitioner with negotiating the rootsÂ’ anatomy below the tissue. Some of these instruments are made to debride only a quarter of the rootÂ’s surface. It may take three differ-ent instruments to completely remove bacte-rial deposits from around a tooth.Though it may seem like a Â“cleaningÂ” to you, when you have periodontal disease, it is nec-essary to not only remove the debris above the gum line, but it is essential to get the deposits that lie below.This is why a simple prophylaxis will not maintain your gums. Unless the bacterial biofilm is completely removed from all your rootsÂ’ surfaces, your periodontal disease will persist.

Primary Stroke Center: What it means to youIn honor of National Stroke Awareness Month this May, Good Samaritan Medical Center encourages the com-munity to learn about the symptoms of a stroke along with staying informed about stroke care medical centers in the area. If you notice a sudden change in your vision or maybe one of your arms or legs feels heavy, numb or weak Â… you may be having a stroke. The signs of a stroke may include the sudden onset of one or more of the following symptoms: Â€ Numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg Â€ Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding Â€ Trouble walking, dizziness or loss of balance or coordination Â€ Trouble seeing in one or both eyesÂ€ Severe headache with no known cause Recognizing the symptoms of a stroke and seeking prompt medical care can greatly improve your chances of recov-ery. Every 40 seconds in the United States, someone has a stroke, and about every three to four minutes someone dies as a result of a stroke. If stroke is separated from cardiovascular disease, it is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. About seven mil-lion Americans are stroke survivors, yet many of them have serious, long-term disabilities. Why early care is importantWhen someone is having a stroke, they need prompt emergency medical care. During a stroke, blood supply to the brain is cut off or disrupted, causing part of the brain to go without the oxy-gen-rich blood it needs. The longer the brain goes without blood, the greater the chance a disability will occur. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke conducted a five-year study on the use of tissue plas-minogen activator (tPA), a clot-busting drug. The study found that patients who received tPA within three hours of the first stroke symptoms were at least 30 percent more likely to recover with little or no disability after three months. When a person is having a stroke, doc-tors must first determine whether the stroke is caused by a clot (ischemic stroke) or by a ruptured blood vessel (hemorrhagic) before tPA can be used. This is because tPA can only be used for ischemic strokes, which account for about 87 percent of all strokes.Improving careThe Brain Attack Coalition, a group of 14 national organizations including the American Academy of Neurology, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the American College of Emer-gency Physicians, the American Society of Neuroradiology and the American Stroke Association, developed joint recommen-dations for hospitals to create stroke care centers as a way to improve the quality of care for stroke patients. The primary goal of Good Samaritan Medical CenterÂs Primary Stroke Cen-ter is to promptly assess the patientÂs condition and order the tests needed to diagnose the type of stroke. The team also works to stabilize the patientÂs blood pressure, heart rate and other vital functions. If the tests show that the patientÂs stroke is the result of a blood clot blocking a vein in the brain, then tPA can be given to help break up the clot. The team must administer the tPA within three hours of the first symptoms of a stroke, when it is most effective. Good SamaritanÂs stroke team includes physicians such as neurologists or neurosurgeons who specialize in the care of strokes. Nurses from the hospi-talÂs emergency department or intensive care centers are also part of the stroke team. The team is available around the clock to respond when a patient with stroke symptoms comes to the hospital. After receiving appropriate emergency care, Good SamaritanÂs stroke patients are then admitted to the hos-pital to undergo continuous monitoring and evaluate whether rehabilitation ser-vices are necessary. Benefits of a stroke centerAccording to the Brain Attack Coalition, hospitals with stroke centers have shown improved treatment times for stroke care and be tter patient outc omes. Good Samaritan Medical CenterÂs stroke program has been awarded cer-tification from the Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center because of its multidisciplinary stroke care and rapid diagnostic and treatment protocols. The center is also a part of Tenet FloridaÂs Advanced Neuroscience Network, an integrated delivery system of medical professionals and hospitals focused on offering a full continuum of neurologi-cal care throughout South Florida. Last November, Good Samaritan earned the Get With The Guidelines Â… Stroke Gold Award from the American Heart Associ-ation, which attests to our commitment to quality patient care. Good Samaritan Medical Center periodically offers lectures on the topic of stroke that are open to the public. To reserve your spot at one of our upcom-ing events, please call 650-6023.

We offer 3D mammography (tomosynthesis) a leading-edge technology that increases diagnostic accuracy and has been shown to decrease the need for additional imagin g and unnecessary biopsies, getting it right the Â“rst time. Scripps to develop new diagnostics for cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, colitisScientists from the Florida cam-pus of The Scripps Research Institute have been awarded a $2.3 million grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Insti-tutes of Health to develop new tech-nology to diagnose cancer, rheuma-toid arthritis and colitis. Paul Thompson, a TSRI associate professor, will be the primary prin-cipal investigator for the four-year study. ÂWeÂve already identified a number of biomarkers for rheumatoid arthritis that weÂre in the process of validat-ing,ÂŽ Thompson said. ÂThe platform we are developing is faster and more versatile than existing technologies.ÂŽ Such biomarkers could allow for better, more individually tailored treatments because they could be used to diagnose and monitor dis-ease progression or remission as patients experience different treatment options. At the heart of the new study is a unique group of enzymes known as protein arginine deiminases (PAD). An increase in PAD activity has been noted in a number of conditions, such as inflammatory diseases like rheu-matoid arthritis as well as cancer and AlzheimerÂs disease. PADs participate in reactions in the body that form the amino acid citrulline in proteins through a pro-cess known as citrullination, a modi-fication that can have a significant impact on the structure and function of the modified proteins. While the exact role of citrullination remains unknown, inhibition of citrullination in animal models, using a compound developed by Thompson, has been shown to alleviate the severity of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative coli-tis, atherosclerosis, lupus, nerve dam-age and cancer. In addition to developing biomarkers, the scientists will use the grant to better understand this modifica-tion and whether it provides a com-mon link among these disparate dis-eases. Q Thompson

Yunus Creative Lab Inc. promotes youth and female empowerment, Âsocial businessÂŽ to solve social problems, sus-tainability and the elimination of poverty and unemployment. Q May 14 Palm Beach Chamber breakfast set for the Kravis CenterThe popular Palm Beach Gardens GreenMarket starts its summer run at STORE Self Storage on May 11, pro-viding the produce-picking public the opportunity to shop in the shade while the sun swelters. The city and the storage facility have, for the second year, entered into an agreement to house the GreenMarket through the dog days of summer. ÂOur staff wanted to go year-round, but mainly, the public wanted us to go year-round,ÂŽ said Christy Wolnewitz, the cityÂs operations manager. ÂItÂs very hot, though.ÂŽ The special setup at STORE Self Storage will include 55 vendors Â… compared to the 140 that fill the grounds of City Hall during the regular season Â… under a covered breezeway, tables and chairs for patrons to sit at and enjoy their breakfast, and a few additional tents outside the breezeway with products for sale. ÂWe are very pleased to have this partnership with STORE,ÂŽ Ms. Wolne-witz said. ÂItÂs been very beneficial for both of us. It gives us a place to go under cover, and it gives them foot traffic.ÂŽ STORE Self Storage on the northwest corner of PGA Boulevard and Military Trail provides climate-controlled per-sonal storage, as well as high-tech wine storage, and has an audio-, videoand Internet-equipped conference room for community and corporate use. The GreenMarketÂs successful first run at the facility in 2013, with vendor waiting lists and streams of shoppers, convinced the city to do it again. ÂIt will give the public an offering of being able to come to an open-air mar-ket during the summer,ÂŽ Ms. Wolnewitz said. An estimated 1,000 to 2,000 residents from around the county will attend the Saturday-morning market each week. Between 3,000 and 4,000 attend weekly from October to May. ÂWeÂre very proud of the way the market has grown,ÂŽ Ms. Wolnewitz said. ÂThey pretty much come looking for us now, and thatÂs a beautiful thing.ÂŽ The Palm Beach Gardens GreenMarketÂs year-round schedule makes it one of the more popular in town, drawing loyal customers from other areas whose markets have closed or will soon. West Palm BeachÂs ÂFresh of the WaterfrontÂŽ GreenMarket will have its final day May 31, and the Green Market Stand at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society comes to an end June 28. Both the Lake Worth Farmers Market and the Wellington Green Market closed April 26. The Jupiter Green & Artisan Market will remain open Sundays through the summer. The Palm Beach Gardens GreenMarket moves back to City Hall on Oct. 5. ÂWe pride ourselves on being green Â… thatÂs our goal,ÂŽ Ms. Wolnewitz said. ÂWeÂre getting you your produce from the farm to the plate as much as we can.ÂŽ While most of the vendors sell sustainable food, the ones selling candles, soaps, jewelry and other crafts consider the environment when making their wares. ÂThe crafts that we have at the market are truly handmade,ÂŽ said Jennifer Nelli, the cityÂs recreation supervisor. ÂTheyÂre not buy-to-sell items. TheyÂre handmade by the vendor thatÂs selling them. That makes them a little more special than your everyday gift-shop item.ÂŽ Other vendors sell prepared meals, including omelets and potatoes, shrimp and grits, and conch fritters and crab cakes. Fresh flowers and potted orchids fit into the mix, as well. ÂOur goal is to get something into the market that we donÂt currently have,ÂŽ Ms. Nelli said. ÂBut we never turn down farmers.ÂŽ Among the more interesting vendors:Â€ MomÂs Pops freezes fresh ingredients such as strawberry mint and basil lime into its gourmet popsicles. ÂYou see the chunks of the fruit in the pop-sicle,ÂŽ Ms. Nelli said. Â€ Farriss Farms specializes in grassfed beef and duck eggs. ÂThey are $8 a dozen, but people love them,ÂŽ she said. Â€ Treasure Coast Seltzer bottles a variety of waters and offers tastings at the GreenMarket. ÂThey also do boxed water, which is becoming very popular, so itÂs not in plastic,ÂŽ she said.Carl Frost, owner of Kai-Kai Farm, has made the pre-dawn trip to the Palm Beach Gardens GreenMarket from west-ern Martin County for four consecutive seasons Âbecause we make money there.ÂŽ ÂWe usually sell most of our produce there, and I canÂt say that about a lot of the markets,ÂŽ Mr. Frost said. ÂItÂs consis-tent and better than most. ItÂs our largest greenmarket, so itÂs turned out to be a winner.ÂŽ Q GreenMarket opens May 11BY AMY WOODSawoods@Â” oridaweekly.com SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ COURTESY PHOTOWhen the weather heats up, the Palm Beach Gardens market moves under cover at the STORE self storage.
GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 BUSINESS A23 Girls II WomenProgram steeped in success stories recognized by The Gardens MallThe sixth-, seventh-, and eighthgraders in the Girls II Women pro-gram have worked for weeks prepar-ing poems and letters to honor their mothers, grandmothers and, in some cases, their guardians. These written words will fall on the ears of the invited guests at a gather-ing just in time for MotherÂs Day. On Saturday, May 10, a luncheon will be held at BloomingdaleÂs at The Gar-dens Mall, where dozens of darling daughters will read aloud the reasons why they love the women who have raised them. ÂThis is testing their writing and essay skills,ÂŽ said Anne Messer, a board member of the local nonprofit that aims to help middle school girls in underserved neighborhoods. ÂBut IÂm sure there will be some tears shed.ÂŽ The luncheon represents one of the varied monthly field trips the Girls II Women program offers its members in an effort to broaden their horizons and build their self-esteem. ÂThereÂs a lot of organizations that focus on high school girls, which is all well and good,ÂŽ said Ms. Messer, who co-founded the organization in 1997. ÂWe decided a long time ago that we were going to focus on middle school girls. ThatÂs a very tender and impres-sionable age.ÂŽ Girls II WomenÂs current class includes 60 students from two schools: Lake Shore Middle in Belle Glade, and Roosevelt Middle in West Palm Beach, its mentors comprise area business-women from all walks of life who impart their experiences to the often-misguided youths. Messer remembered one of the earlier presentations. ÂThey all wanted to be models or singers, and we said, ÂThat would be great,Â but we also wanted to say, ÂGet an education, because an educa-tion will lead you to find a fulfilling career,Â ÂŽ she said. Such presentations take place in each school twice a month, providing an ongoing presence of role models for the girls to follow. ÂWe are from all different career backgroundsÂƒan in-home seamstress, women who do hair and makeup, bankers Â… everything,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. Success stories abound. Alicia Jennings graduated from Pahokee Middle Senior High School as class valedicto-rian and got accepted to Brown Uni-versity in Rhode Island. ÂShe had never been out of Pahokee,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. Jennings then enrolled in Harvard Medical School. Leticia Delanardo, another Girls II Women graduate, called Messer about five years ago, all grown up. Ms. Dela-nardo had attended college, returned to Belle Glade to become a teacher at Lake Shore Middle School, and wanted to become a mentor for the program. ÂI almost fell out of my chair,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. ÂI couldnÂt believe it.ÂŽ She praises Nancy Talbert Smith, the retired educator from Pahokee who conceived of the program for giv-ing girls a new outlook on life. ÂShe asked us if weÂd be willing to mentor girls,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. ÂI felt that the world is their oyster, and they could do or be anything they wanted, and I wanted to be sure I got that message to them.ÂŽ Those who graduate from the program and meet all its requirements have the opportunity to take a guided tour of U.S. colleges paid for by the organization. In March 2013, the girls traveled to Boston to visit Harvard University, Boston College, and the University of Massachusetts, with a walk along the historic Freedom Trail and a visit to the Museum of Science in between. ÂThatÂs the cream of the crop,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. ÂThatÂs the icing on the cake. But they have to earn it.ÂŽ The next tour will take place in 2015. ÂWe really want these girls excited about attending college,ÂŽ Messer said. ÂEven if they never go, they can at least say they visited a college campus and got the experience. We just want them to find a career that they enjoy and that they can make a living at.ÂŽ The trips come at a cost: $500 per girl. A majority of the funds will origi-nate from the Cocktails for College event, a glamorous evening of fashion and frolicking at The Gardens Mall in October. ÂWe look forward to hosting Cocktails for College. ItÂs an honor to support the Girls II Women organiza-tion and their mission,ÂŽ said Michele Jacobs, corporate director of market-ing and operations for The Forbes Company. ÂWhat they are doing for these young women is life-changing.ÂŽ As part of a campaign celebrating the shopping meccaÂs quarter century in Palm Beach Gardens, The Gardens Mall named Girls II Women one of its 25 charities. ÂLast yearÂs Cocktails for College event was the most successful fund-raiser weÂve ever had in the history of Girls II Women,ÂŽ Ms. Messer said. ÂThe mall underwrote everything.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYFinancial planning problems elicit diverse solutions Pose a medical problem to various health-care professionals, each having diverse areas of medical specialization, and you will probably get a series of diverse answers. For instance, pose the question about how to get rid of aches and pains to a general practitioner, an arthritis specialist, sports medicine practitioner, pain disorder specialist, a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a mas-sage therapist and a holistic specialist, and you will get answers that vary from prescriptions, to physical therapy, to recommendations for green diets and detoxing, to an MRI, to a request for weekly adjustments, and the list goes on. Logically, their answers will reflect their particular knowledge base, and of course, their particular revenue base. Equally so, pose a broad financial question to a variety of diverse finance and legal professionals and you will get a litany of answers reflecting their exper-tise and their revenue base. The ques-tion, ÂHow should I build a life estate and what are the most efficient ways to pass on the estate?ÂŽ posed to a life insur-ance professional, a stockbroker, a real estate broker, a banker, an entrepreneur, a corporate executive, a private equity manager, hedge fund manager, etc., will elicit varying answers: whole life, uni-versal life, annuities, corporate stock options, a trust filled with equities or hedge funds or private equity, creation of a family business, purchase of com-mercial real estate holdings, etc. How can it be that one question has so many disparate answers? The reason is that most investment professionals can only sell specific products and they then tailor the use of those products to answer the many financial questions that hopefully creates a new client base. For instance, the life insurance professional offers insurance and annuity products, and these products can be used to solve the question of building an estate and/or tax efficiently passing along an estate. The real estate broker answers with land, commercial, indus-trial and residential holding directly or in partnership form. The corporate executive answers with amassing corpo-rate stock options and getting coverage under corporate health plans, etc. The stockbroker will point to equities. The entrepreneur will insist on a startup business. The sample question is akin to asking how to reach NYC from D.C. Answer: By train, by plane, by car, by bike, by boat, etc. The tenured pilot can com-ment about his airlinesÂ flights, but he probably canÂt comment on other air-lines and certainly canÂt reliably com-ment on boat, train, car, etc., nor can the tenured train conductor comment about flight schedules. But somehow in the area of finance, the person posing the generic ques-tion thinks that all finance professionals across diverse financial disciplines will answer in unison. But the insurance broker is generallyÂƒ but not always (as some are very sophisticated)Âƒ not in position to respond beyond the specif-ics of life insurance and, even beyond the types of insurance products offered by their firm. And it might be that it is a challenge for them to fully understand the intricacies of many products offered by their firm! Of course, there is greater commonality of answer from those who have a financial planning certification of some sort; but again, you will find dif-ferences if their business practice spe-cializes in particular investment vehicle. Far beyond a preference to stick to their financial products, many of these professionals are capable of understand-ing and selling a variety of products/solutionsÂƒ but often it requires differ-ent certifications (time and money) and differing compliance reporting (time and money) and differing product/firm relationships (sometimes in conflict and not do-able). So what is the average Joe to do? First, see if you can find a financial generalist who has had experience across many financial disciplines. This is usually very hard to find. Few invest-ment professionals have sold insurance, been an equity broker, invested in hedge funds themselves, run a large commer-cial real estate portfolio, started a business and had a sojourn as a corporate executive. But some investment profes-sionals have been trained and worked across disciplines. Why so little cross training/work experience? Because the world of big finance demands ÂexpertsÂŽ and Âspecialists,ÂŽ and that is where the big money lies. The average Joe has to settle for someone with less experience and a smaller knowledge base. So, if there is not a generalist who can discuss these various investment realms, then you might want to take it upon yourself to interview a consortium of investment professionals: e.g., two life insurance salesmen, two investment advisers, two real estate developers or brokers, two equity money managers, two trust and estate attorneys. Then you will have become the generalist. Each professional will promote the good points of their products. Your interviews of others will bring further insight into the strengths and weaknesses of these products. Third, find out how the investment professionals make their money and then you will understand the skew in their solutions. After all, even though professionals might heartily believe in their products, services, counsel, etc., their compensation is somehow tied to recruitment and retention of clients.

The Art of Living KOVEL: ANTIQUES Faux finishes meant to fool can fetch a price in their own right BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL SPECIAL TO Florida WeeklyExpensive woods like teak or mahogany, marble, stone and other materials used to make expensive furniture are often imitated by a painted surface. Faux finishes have been used since the days of ancient Egypt. The Greeks and Romans admired murals that were examples of trompe lÂoeil (fool-the-eye) paintings. Life-size objects on tables, half-open doors, stairways and furnishings included in these paintings looked real. The tradition of faux finishes experienced a resurgence in the 19th century. A major Civil War monument with an interior of pink marble walls was restored a few years ago. It was discovered during the restoration that the monumentÂs walls were actually made of white marble painted with a faux finish that made the wall look like expensive pink mar-ble. No doubt it was done to save money Â„ and it was so well done it fooled the public. Inexpensive wood used to make furniture has been painted to resemble mahogany, bamboo, teak, birds-eye maple or just deco-rative graining. Tabletops were ÂimprovedÂŽ with a faux marble finish. Talented artists also painted tops with what looked like mul-ticolored mosaic designs. Bamboo furniture was the latest rage in the early 1800s. Bamboo was hard to get in Europe and the United States, so Chi-nese-style furniture was made with wooden parts shaped like bamboo, then painted with trompe lÂoiel graining. The wooden parts were stronger than real bamboo, so the faked parts often were an improvement. The tradition of painted furniture has continued, and collectors pay a premium for American Âgrained woodÂŽ country pieces made from 1850 until about 1880. But the finish must be original and in good condition. Q: Can you tell me if the old Franciscan earthenware pattern named Sierra Sand contains lead? A: Franciscan china was fired at high temperatures and is safe, but you can buy a lead-testing kit at a hardware store or online and test it yourself to see if the glaze contains lead. Lead-free glazes have been required on dinnerware sold in the United States since the 1980s. But glazes may con-tain some lead and still be considered Âlead free,ÂŽ according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines. If the pottery was fired at the correct temperature for the right amount of time, the lead fuses to the pottery and does not leach off. While your Franciscan dishes are safe, watch out for any pottery made in Mexico or China, hand-crafted pottery, pieces that are highly decorated or have decorations painted over the glaze, and pottery with orange, red or yellow glaze. Q: An uncle in Ireland gave us an old clock. The inscription on the face of the clock is ÂLepaute, Hger Du Roi.ÂŽ It has Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals for the minutes. Do you have any idea how old the clock is and what it might be worth? A: The Lepautes were master clockmakers in the 18th century. Jean-Andre Lepa ute (17201789) began making clocks in Paris in about 1740. He specialized in large clocks for pub-lic installations and invented several improvements to clocks. He was a ÂHorlo-ger du Roi,ÂŽ a clockmaker to the king, by 1751. His brother, Jean-Baptiste (1727-1802), joined him in business in 1759 and became head after Jean-Andre retired in 1774. After Jean-Baptiste died, his nephews ran the business for several years. Some clocks by Lepaute sell for several thousand dollars. Your clock would need to be seen by an expert to determine its value. A very famous 1765 mantel clock has auctioned for $111,462. Q: My father found a metal Coca-Cola serving tray in the attic of a railroad depot being torn down in Fayette, Mo., in the early 1980s. It has been hanging in my parentsÂ home ever since. I have tried researching it but havenÂt had any luck. The tray is rect-angular and 24 by 34 inches. It has a green border surrounding a red inner border. In the center is a picture of a woman in a white gown wearing a tiara and holding an open black fan. Her right elbow is resting on an elaborate pedestal with flowers on it. The words on the tray are: ÂDelicious, Refresh-ing, Drink Coca-Cola, At Fountains 5 cents, In Bottles 5 cents.ÂŽ Can you help? A: Your tray is a reproduction that dates from the late 1960s or Â70s. The woman pic-tured is Lillian Nordica (1857-1914), a famous American opera singer. Coca-Cola used her image on oval serving trays in 1905. A 1975 tray similar to yours, but with a bottle of Coke on the pedestal was made to celebrate the 75th anniversary of an Atlanta bottler. That tray, with a history printed on the back, sells for about $20 today. Other trays like yours have a glass of Coke on the pedestal. Many authorized and unauthorized repro-duction and ÂfantasyÂŽ Coca-Cola trays (a fantasy tray uses an old image but doesnÂt copy a vintage tray) have been made since the 1970s. They sell for $5 to $75, depending on quality, condition, rarity and whether or not the tray was authorized by the company or a bottler. Tip: Re-glue a dollÂs wig with rubber cement. ItÂs removable if you later want to change the wig. Q Â„ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

A woman of a certain age came to sit beside me and we shared a few moments in the sun. White-haired and impeccably dressed, she wore flaming red lipstick and had a beauty mark pen-ciled on her right cheek. She was, in a word, fabulous. We chatted about the spring day, the pizza place on the corner, the teenager with pink hair across the street. The woman shifted on the bench, searching for a more comfortable spot, and said to me in a low growl, ÂNever get old. I tÂs a bitch.ÂŽ I had to laugh. Lately, IÂd been thinking the same thing. ItÂs funny the way age slips up on us. My mother recently cleaned out her spare room and found a stack of photos from the summer of 2010. Not that long ago, in the larger scheme of things, but still I was struck by how much younger I looked. It scares me to think what another four years will do. For the most part, I try not to be vain about aging. When my friends talk about Botox or the latest youth serum, I just roll my eyes. Age is inevitable, I tell them. We canÂt outrun it, and we certainly canÂt defeat it. The best we can do is manage its ups and downs with grace and class. ThatÂs what I say in my optimistic moments, anyway. In other, darker times, I curse every person under 30 who calls me ÂmaÂam.ÂŽ I havenÂt been labeled ÂmissÂŽ in more than two years. I want to weep each time a strangerÂs eyes slide off me, disinterested, and I remember the line from an aging poet Â„ once a great beauty Â„ who said she didnÂt need the bag boys at the grocery store to flirt with her, she just wanted them to notice her. Last week I traveled back to my alma mater for a panel where I sat on stage with five other alumni rang-ing from recent graduates up to, well, me. I was the oldest, sure, but I had on a sexy dress and high heels and I felt certain I could hold my own, even if the students in the audience were the class of 2018. As if in confirmation, one of the other panel-ists approached me at the reception afterward. He was cute and quirky, artsy and funny. He had on funky socks and trendy glasses, and as we swapped stories about travel-ing in Europe, I surreptitiously checked out his nametag: Class of 2010, a good eight years younger than I am. I actually (and embarrassingly) thought, IÂve still got it. For a brief wondrous moment, I believed that getting older isnÂt so bad. Then my young friend turned to me in the middle of a con-versation about technology and said brightly, ÂI guess when you were here they still had carrier pigeons.ÂŽ He would have done less harm if heÂd socked me in the gut.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 bad as all that. For this Mother Âs Day, here are some classic Moms from Hell: dysfunctional movie mothers we love to hate.Q ÂMommie DearestÂŽ (1981) Joan Crawford, played by Faye Dunaway. Type of mother: abusive, control freak.When it comes to cinematic mothers from Hell, ÂMommie DearestÂŽ is most likely the first film that pops into peopleÂs minds: The spectacular temper tantrums. The compulsion about clean-ing. The endless obsession with appear-ances. The desire to control everyoneÂs life. Based on Christina CrawfordÂs 1978 memoir about growing up as the daugh-ter of Joan Crawford, ÂMommie Dear-estÂŽ is about the penultimate bad moth-er. Even those who have never seen the movie know her dictum: ÂNo wire hangers!ÂŽ Q ÂThrow Momma From the TrainÂŽ (1987) Mrs. Lift, played by Anne Ramsey.Type of mother: overbearing, demanding, verbally abusive. The Pennsylv ania Dutch, with their unique syntax, would say, ÂThrow Momma from the train a kiss.ÂŽ But Owen, played by Danny DeVito, just wants to throw Momma from a train, period. Or rather, heÂd prefer to have someone else do the dirty deed for him. And when we meet his mother, wonderfully played by Anne Ramsey, we understand: SheÂs a nag, always yell-ing, always demanding. She calls Owen names and belittles him, in a voice that sounds like two trains grinding against each other. When OwenÂs creative writing teacher, Larry (Billy Crystal), suggests he watch Alfred HitchcockÂs ÂStrangers on a TrainÂŽ for its plot development, Owen has a brainstorm: HeÂll murder LarryÂs hated ex-wife for him, and Larry can kill Momma for Owen. When Larry initially declares heÂs no murderer, Owen optimistically tells him, ÂJust meet her. Maybe sheÂd be somebody youÂd like to kill.ÂŽQ ÂThe Manchurian CandidateÂŽ (1962) Eleanor Iselin, played by Angela Lansbury. Type of mother: manipulative, deceitful, incestuous. ItÂs tough to write about this classic thriller without giving away the clever and devastating plot twists. Suffice it to say that Angela Lansbury plays a calcu-lating, manipulative mother who wants to see her husband become vice presi-dent. As for her son, war hero Major Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra), well, she wants him to get rid of the competition. And this mother will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Her methods are devious to the extreme. In Richard CondonÂs novel, which the movie is based upon, the mother actu-ally sleeps with the son at one point, but in the movie that was watered down to a kiss, as the director knew it wouldnÂt get past the censors of the early 1960s. (A remake was made; we recommend the original.)Q ÂOrdinary PeopleÂŽ (1980) Beth Jarrett, played by Mary Tyler Moore. Type of mother: cold, withholding, perfectionist. Mary Tyler Moore is so frosty in ÂOrdinary PeopleÂŽ she makes you shiver. Her role as Beth Jarrett is 180 degrees away from her cheerful Laura Petrie or Mary Richards personas. In this movie based on Judith GuestÂs novel, Beth has lost one teenage son in a boating accident. Her other son, strug-gling with survivorÂs guilt, tries to com-mit suicide. Beth seems much more concerned with image and having things go Âback to normalÂŽ than with helping her son heal. She withdraws her affection at the time that he needs it most. This is a mother who is deep in denial and withholds what any child needs most: love and nurturing. Absolutely chilling. Q ÂGypsyÂŽ (1962) Rose Hovick, played by Rosalind Russell. Type of mother: stage mother, manipulative, jealous. Is there anything worse than a stage mom? They dictate their childrenÂs lives, living out their own fantasies for fame through their offspring. Based on a true story, ÂGypsyÂŽ stars Rosalind Russell as Mama Rose, the uber-stage mom who pushes her two daughters into show business, whether they want to act or not. They start out in vaudeville, but when one daughter eventually runs off, Mama Rose concen-trates all her efforts on the remaining, younger daughter, who grows up to be Gypsy Rose Lee. I ask you: What type of mother forces her daughter into stripping? This is the sad story of a woman who feels fame has passed her by and tries to live her life vicariously through her daughter.Q ÂPostcards From the EdgeÂŽ (1990) Doris Mann, played by Shirley MacLaine. Type of mother: narcissistic, competitive, manipulative. In ÂPostcards From the Edge,ÂŽ based on Carrie FisherÂs comic novel of the same name, Suzanne (Meryl Streep) is a young actress with a drug problem. She also has a mother problem: Doris Mann (Shirley MacLaine), an aging star who is much more famous. Doris lectures Suzanne on her drug use, while herself drinking to excess. Wherever Doris is, all the attention has to be focused on her. Even when her daughter sings at a party, she has to follow up by performing a song herself, upstaging her once again. Life with mother is just one big competition for the spotlight.Q ÂAugust: Osage CountyÂŽ (2013)Violet Weston, played by Meryl Streep.Type of mother: cruel, verbally abusive. Mattie Fae Aiken, played by Margo Martindale. Type of mother: verbally abusive, belittling. ÂAugust: Osage County,ÂŽ based on Tracy LettsÂ Pulitzer prize-winning play of the same name, gives us not one, but two abusive mothers. Actually, the whole damn family in this ensemble piece is pretty dysfunctional. But then again, just look at the mother, and you can understand why. Violet Weston (Meryl Streep), who herself had a rough, abusive childhood, is a pill-addicted alcoholic whose acidic tongue cuts her children to ribbons. ÂIÂm just truth-telling,ÂŽ she insists, as if that makes her cruelty all right. Her sister, Mattie Fae (Margo Martindale) is relentless in belittling her son, whom she still calls Little Charles even though heÂs a grown man. Cringing in her presence, heÂs a bundle of nerves, apologetic for even existing.Q ÂMillion Dollar BabyÂŽ (2004) Earline Fitzgerald, played by Margo Martindale. Type of mother: greedy, uncaring.In ÂMillion Dollar Baby,ÂŽ based on a collection of boxing stories by F.X. Toole, Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) wants to become a boxer. It takes her a while to convince Frankie (Clint Eastwood) to be her trainer, but she finally does. Although her mother, Earline, played by Margo Martindale, does not appear in the movie much, when she does, she proves herself to be a totally despicable human being. Earline belittles MaggieÂs dreams and accomplishments. When Maggie earns enough money to buy her family a new home, instead of thanking her, Earline berates her, claiming the house will cause her to lose her welfare payments and Medicaid benefits. When (SPOILER ALERT) Maggie ends up in the hospital, her family actually goes to Disneyland and Universal Studios Hol-lywood before going to the hospital to see her. ItÂs obvious this mother doesnÂt care about her daughterÂs well being and only sees her as a meal ticket.Q ÂThe SopranosÂŽ (1999 to 2007) Livia Soprano, played by Nancy Marchand. Type of mother: manipulative, passive aggressive. OK, technically this isnÂt a movie; itÂs an HBO series. But it is available on DVD. Livia Soprano, mother of New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano, is so bad, so reprehensible, that we couldnÂt leave her off this list. She is the mother of all mothers from hell: passive aggressive, wheedling, demanding, manipulative, never happy with anything. When Livia indignantly claims, ÂI donÂt know what youÂre talking about,ÂŽ is she simply in denial, growing forget-ful, or being incredibly devious? And what mother sanctions a hit on her son? The late Nancy Marchand played Livia Soprano to the hilt. In her final role as an actress, she gave us an unforgettable Mom from Hell we all loved to hate. Q MOMSFrom page 1 MGM STUDIOS Anne Ramsey played Mrs. Lift in Â“Throw Momma from the Train,Â” an overbearing demanding and verbally abusive mother.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of sup-port. Things should turn around before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of find-ing potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that ÂidealÂŽ situ-ation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moon-beams. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more Âpurr-suasionÂŽ to get you to agree to a work-place change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Don Ât be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isnÂt always obvious on the surface. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A friend or family memberÂs request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all the facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your original concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -wonÂt you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully. You earned it. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Untangling personal problems might take more time than the impatient Lamb expected. But itÂs important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of beauty in your personal life extends to your efforts to protect and preserve the natural world around you.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 B11 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative Â— one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to Â“get him out of the houseÂ” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. Â“IÂ’ve always been a car guy,Â” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturerÂ’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia Â— dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible Â“AutoMax doesnÂ’t look like your typical car lot,Â” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. Â“It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.Â” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. Â“I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,Â” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. Â“There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldnÂ’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. Â“It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consum-ers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.Â“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,Â” Mr. McLaughlin said. Â“I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealerÂ’s fees.Â” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. Â“I donÂ’t make any money on those cars,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People donÂ’t realize how much work goes into what we do.Â” Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in Â— BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus Â— can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you donÂ’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

NoIn ÂFading Gigolo,ÂŽ writer/director/ star John Turturro Âs script calls for his character to have a thr eesome with adventurous middle-agers played by Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone. ThatÂs right: The funny-looking Turturro writes himself into bed with bona fide hotties Ms. Verg-ara and Ms. Stone. Genius. Unfortunately ÂFading GigoloÂŽ doesnÂt offer much besides admiration for its conceit. Floravante (Mr. Turturro) is a kind, unassuming florist in New York City. His friend Murray (Woody Allen) shocks him with a proposal: MurrayÂs unhappily married dermatologist, Dr. Parker (Ms. Stone), and her best friend Selima (Ms. Vergara) want to have a threesome, and theyÂre willing to pay for this service. Ever the businessman, Murray pimps Floravante out to Dr. Parker (who wants to try him alone first) and other ladies who crave a nice guy to satisfy their needs. Floravante feels bad about taking advantage of vul-nerable women, but itÂs not like they didnÂt ask for his help. Mr. TurturroÂs dialog rarely feels natural. Instead of flowing with rhythm, they stick and stay with a thud, causing the narrative to plod along rather than thrust forward. This is especially evident as Floravante comforts Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), an orthodox Jew whoÂs been sitting Shiva for two years for her deceased husband. Their bond is intended to be platonic, that of two lonely souls needing a genuine connection, but it feels trite and forced. TheyÂre not hav-ing conversations; theyÂre speaking in metaphors, platitudes and phony moral righteousness: ÂYou bring magic to the lonely,ÂŽ Avigal tells Floravante with faux poetic words that donÂt fit her personality. Making it worse is the Brooklyn cop (Liev Schreiber) who yearns for Avigal but is too pathetic to deserve her. This guy is a creepy, unnecessary accessory whose only function is to ruin the ending. Ms. Stone, Ms. Vergara and Mr. Allen are here for comic relief, and their jokes hit and miss. HereÂs the thing: Mr. Turturro, who has a total of six writing credits to his name, should not be writing jokes for Woody Allen. Only Woody Allen should write jokes for Woody Allen. Mr. TurturroÂs jokes play like sad attempts to write Woody Allen jokes: ÂIÂm your whore,ÂŽ Flora-vante says. ÂHey, itÂs the oldest profession,ÂŽ Murray quips. This is followed by the Âwah-wahÂŽ failure sound effect in your head. Mr. TurturroÂs message seems to be that carnal pleasures donÂt buy happiness, and that religious doctrine is too restrictive. Fair enough. ItÂs just really hard to have that in the same movie as a threesome with Ms. Stone, Ms. Vergara and bad Woody Allen jokes. In an apparent attempt to essentially thank Mr. Allen for playing Mur-ray, Mr. Turturro includes a few subtle ÂAnnie HallÂŽ nods, including a conver-sation between Floravante and Mur-ray that begins with a long shot as they walk down a sidewalk. And for good measure, thereÂs an homage to ÂCasablancaÂŽ toward the end as well. Unfortunately, none of these moments make ÂFading GigoloÂŽ any better; in fact, they only serve to remind us how much this movie pales in comparison to the classics. Q m t w h c A dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> This is only the second time since Â“AntzÂ” (1998) that Woody Allen has had a credited appearance in a lm he did not direct. They other is the little-seen Â“Picking Up The PiecesÂ” (2000).

The jumping timeline between past and present doesnÂt serve the movie well, and the performances are only so-so. Based on a true story. Rated R. Transcendence ++ 1/2 (Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman) A terminally ill scientist uploads his brain into a computer and evolves at a dangerously alarming rate.

Consider this deal where South wound up in six clubs doubled. Perhaps East should have opened three spades, which might have shut the opponents out of the bid-ding. Instead he started with one spade, allowing North-South to find their club fit. West's spade lead was a dubious choice, as he should have real-ized that North's four-spade cue-bid indicated a void in the suit and that a spade lead would there-fore accomplish nothing. Whether West should have led a diamond or a heart is debatable Â„ but his actual lead proved fatal. Declarer ruffed the spade in dummy and led the queen of clubs, on which East followed low. South made a good guess by going up with the ace and leading five rounds of hearts, discarding all three of his diamonds in the process. West ruffed the fifth heart, but by then the setting trick Â„ East's ace of diamonds Â„ had already flown the coop. As a result, declar-er made the slam and scored 1,660 points instead of going down one, which would have been his lot had West led a diamond originally. Had it occurred to West that a spade lead was wrong, he might, of course, have misguessed and led a heart, in which case declarer would still have made the contract. But then again, West might have led a diamond and beaten the slam. The bottom line is that since a spade lead did not figure to gain anything for his side, West should have dismissed it as a possibility and considered an alterna-tive.

For children, Boot, Scoot & Baseball features the company of four-legged animal farm friends in a petting zoo. And if real-life animals aren Ât your thing, there also will be a mechanical bull. Adults can get in on the fun, too, with dollar beers. ÂEverything that we do during the minor league season is really centered around families. ItÂs family-friendly wholesome fun,ÂŽ said Mr. Bauer, himself the father of two young sons. ÂWe are a very familyfriendly environment. WeÂre affordable, which is important these days. WeÂre less expensive than going to the movies, weÂre less expensive than mini-golf and, believe it or not, weÂre less expensive than bowling,ÂŽ he said. Admission to games at Roger Dean is $8.50 for adults and $6.50 for kids and seniors. ÂWeÂre a great way for a family to come out and connect. The pace of baseball really lends itself to that,ÂŽ Mr. Bauer said. ÂI really like that word Â„ ÂconnectÂ Â„ how often do you really connect with your family anymore and really get to talk? What a great environ-ment for that.ÂŽ According to Mr. Bauer, attendance at most games averages about 800 people. ÂWeÂre hoping for 2,000 to 2,500 people at Boot, Scoot & Baseball, which would be a really nice crowd for our minor leagues,ÂŽ he said. The Great 8 promotions have been bumped up from what last year was called The Super 6. ÂThis is a new one,ÂŽ Mr. Bauer said of the first-time event. ÂWeÂre hoping that itÂs successful. All of the rest of them have been really suc-cessful. This is the new one.

They are sold in most of the Gulfstream Goodwill stores at a reduced rate giving individu-als and families an opportunity to add a computer to their daily lives. Some say Goodwill is the original ÂGreenÂŽ company because it recycles, renews and reuses nearly all of the donated items given to Good-will on a yearly basis. GoodwillÂs entire philosophy is centered around donating gently used items for sale in the thrift stores and then using the revenue to fund programs and services to assist people with dis-abilities and other barriers to employment to become self-sufficient, working members of our community.

That poison-barbed weird predator taking over our reefs Â„ on a menu? Yes, indeed. LeftoverÂs serves it up not only as a service to the environment but as a pretty good eater, too. Turns out the flesh is mild and flaky Â„ just what most diners want. ThereÂs no poison in the flesh and once cleaned, it can be dished up in a number of ways. But if lionfish isnÂt your thing, try Pompano, cobia, triple-tail and any number of local fishes not found on everybodyÂs menus. ItÂs a fish-a-copia here Â„ they know their seafood. 451 University Blvd., Jupiter; 627-6030BEST PLACE TO GET GAS AND FOOD>> Tandoor and Curry in the ChevronSo you usually are picking up cashews and Ho-Hos or chips and a slushy.

For quickies, we recommend the vegetable samosa Â„ only a buck. The shrimp-coconut curry is delish, but if you want more traditional, they offer goat Kara-hi. Chicken tikka masala, butter chicken and a number of paneers and daal dishes are dished up by the friendly owners and staff Â„ chat them up for more info on the dishes and suggestions for a great meal.

Bowls full of sprouts, green onions, cilantro and cel-lophane rice noodles are ladled with the hot broth Â„ pork or beef, tofu or chicken. ItÂs a steamy meal-for-two in a bowl that will clear up whatever ails you. DonÂt miss the spring rolls here, either. And by the way, itÂs pronounced ÂfahÂŽ with a slight ÂrÂŽ at the end. 421 Northlake Blvd., North Palm Beach; 841-1313; viet-nameseexpresscafe.comBEST $6.99 WAY TO BLOW A DIET >> A shake from RelishSkip the burgers, however tempt-ing. Go straight to Fall Off the Diet Wagon with their hand-crafted milk-shakes. ItÂs a guar-antee youÂll return because you canÂt settle on just one flavorÂƒ.too bad they donÂt offer a shake sampler. Bananas Foster is among our top five favorites, but the Espresso bean, and Salted Cara-mel rate. Heaven in a frosty cup. Chocolate truffle, carrot cake (a shake of the month selection) and Key lime pie rank right up there.

But we donÂt care Â„ we just like chicken soup when weÂre sick. Two options: Chicken soup and noodles, or matzoh ball soup from TooJayÂs is the ticket. Whatever they do Â„ and maybe we just donÂt want to know Â„ itÂs right. ItÂs soothing, com-forting and makes us think itÂs full of healing powers. Whatever Â„ itÂs delicious. Tip: Get some rye or rolls from their bakery to go along with it. Crackers are just meh.

The doors to the inside din-ing room are flung open so outside comes in Â„ and with the service too often missing today (read that: pros), itÂs where to go to feel a touch nostalgic. Romance is just in the air around here Â„ evidenced by the number of engagements and anniversary dinners they serve.

Cabo Flats is a meet-up market Â„ there, we said it. But a happy one with good drinks, fun nibbles and a steady beat. Therein is the secret. ItÂs so loud, you can say, ÂIÂm leaving now,ÂŽ and maybe theyÂll hear, ÂIÂm going to the bar for another drink.ÂŽ The inside-outside bar is a plus, too. Move around a lot and nobody will notice when you arenÂt out or in. 11701 Lake Victoria Drive, Palm Beach Gardens (Downtown at the Gardens); caboflats.comBEST BOAT LAUNCH TO HEAR Â‘HEY, WATCH THIS!Â’>> Lake Park Marina on a Sunday afternoonThere are plenty of points for observation all around the Lake Park Marina, including their long fishing pier. Best spot for seeing how not to do things, sometimes, is at the boat launch. Boaters coming back from nearby Peanut Island hit a time warp sometime after leaving, and forget how to back a boat trailer into the water or load a boat. ItÂs mostly amusing minor mishaps. Some are a bit costly Â„ those with outboard motors they fail to lift before hauling fall into this. There are numerous gouges in the ramp and some torn up motor shafts on more than a few boats around here. On the last Friday night of the month, a Sunset Celebration is held harborside.

The group of more than 4,000 volunteers has a beach-cleanup project monthly, and gives out thou-sands of doggie-poop bags every year. They volunteer as Ambassadors, telling visitors with dogs how to be on good beach behavior to ensure beaches stay cool for canines. TheyÂve hauled tons of trash off the beach in their clean-ups, and sponsor fund raisers to pay for needed supplies.

A bookstore, though, with free wi-fi and a coffeeshop is a natural. At Barnes and Noble, not only do you have reference material at your fingertips, you can relax in peace without a bunch of javaheads pouring brew all over you or hogging a place by the sugar bar. Once youÂre charged up in the coffee area, you can move to a comfy seat somewhere quiet or in the book department of your choice. Reference staffers on hand Â„ check!

An adjoining store has the ÂtreasuresÂŽ in the shop for sale Â„ as are most of the items in the small, cozy dining room.

We found Chowder Heads restaurant on US Highway 1 in Jupiter, Florida. Owner Ed Wells has brought his love of New England seafood and a passion for su-perior customer service to this restau-rant. We rate this as one of our top ten -SVYPKHUKZ*SLHU`\TT`MVVKHUKHneat atmosphere. >LHZRLK[OLJVYKPHSZ[HHMVYYLJ ommendations on their menu. To our surprise Chowder Heads is more than TLL[Z[OLL`L;OL``[OLZLHMVVKfresh from New England every other day. The recipes are 65 years old from CaronÂ’s in Salem MA. Â“ItÂ’s about the seafood not about the sauces and graviesÂ”, Wells told us, and he was right! We started with some Maine steamers and R.I. chowder, both were VH[OLJOHY[ZNVVKFor our main course I had the Maine Lobster roll with slaw and Suzie had Ipswich fried clam platter with onion strings, both were fresh Â“Authentic New England SeafoodÂ” cooked to perfection. I loved the strings and the slaw, wow! A quick search online reveals an HNYLLTLU[[OH[*OV^KLY/LHKZVHLYZnot only the freshest New England seafood in South Florida but also the au-thentic taste. A local blogger recently visited the restaurant and fondly wrote: Â“I had the Southern style lobster roll which is served warm in butter, Northern is where itÂ’s more of a lobster salad. It was everything I wanted it to be. The roll was packed with lobster meat and the bun was toasted with butter just the way I like it.Â” Their Jupiter location has Happy Hour each weekday from 3 to 6pm and a $6.95 appetizer/bar menu which includes their award winning chowders. Daily seafood specials can be found in the restaurant or by visiting their Facebook page. Their Â“soon to be FamousÂ” Maine Lobster Bisque as well as all three of their award winning clam chowders New England, Manhattan and Rhode Island (we thought the Rhode Island was unique and delicious) can be pur-chased from their on-site market inside the restaurant to take home. They have seafood salads, fresh shrimp, haddock, fresh steamers and scallops too. Hav-ing a party? They make awesome party platters too. Chef was making a lobster Platter when we were there. He put lob-ster claws all around the outside with lemons and cocktail sauce then lobster salad in the middle with those famous New England hot dog rolls buttered and ready for toasting at the customers house. Yummy! Chowder Heads success since they opened their doors in 2012 had led them to a new second location which will be VWLUPUNPU1\S`VH6RLLJOVILLBlvd in West Palm Beach, Florida. Â“The new location will leave guests feeling as though theyÂ’ve walked through the doors and entered Boothbay HarborÂ”, said Wells. Add the romantic touch of dining under the starsÂ… I canÂ’t wait!

The guy keeps promises. If you dial the phone sitting front and center in the dealership, heÂll answer. HeÂs been known to get out of the shower to do so Â„ it rings to his cell phone thatÂs active 24/7. Just ask the 3-year-old who recently tried it out.

Available in custom colors and with monograms, Palm Beach Sandals are an absolutely iconic sandal to step into.

Just check the beachside blackboard thatÂs visible as you drive along A1A in Jupiter south of Marcinski Road. Sea turtle nests are spotted, marked and counted by volun-teers who monitor the nests and help conservation groups keep tabs on the turtle nurseries. March through October is turtle nesting season along our beaches Â„ thatÂs why there are no lights along the beach: they confuse baby turtles who are trying to fol-low the moon back to the sea. DonÂt dig where orange tape is present; take care to stay on marked paths along the beach dunes to avoid disturbing unmarked nests.

The state legislature has bills before it to change the laws preventing other spots from offering the special refillable bottle, but until it passes, only a few breweries offer the jug. But get one (quartor gallon-sized) at TBC and have it filled with Der Chancellor, Gnarly Barley, Ter-minally Ale or JulioÂs Weizen Â„ or whatever else is on tap, fresh brewed that week.

Hansen is young, professional, vibrant, and so talented. HeÂs especially good at playing clas-sic rock jams on the guitar, but before you know it, youÂre listening to a mash-up mix blending todayÂs hits with the rock songs you know and love. Hansen knows how to read a crowd too, so no matter what, you know youÂre going to have fun. BEST MISNAMED RESTAURANT>> HullaballooDespite sounding like someplace that you might drop off your pre-schooler to try the whole Âsquare peg, round holeÂŽ thing, Hullaballoo is a fantastic place for adults to grab a bite. The creative menu that focuses on European dishes (from marrow bones to handmade pasta) has something for everyone, and the cocktails are creative and delicious (try the Nina Simone or the Ian Curtis). Hullaballoo offers indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a converted Airstream that can be reserved for groups.

WEEK OF MAY 8-14, 2014 THE BEST 39FLORIDA WEEKLY BEST SUNDAY FUNDAY>> Peanut IslandSunday Funday Â„ everybod yÂs doing it. The expression simply means to take full advantage of your Sun-day as an opportunity to keep celebrating the week-end rather than worry about its near-ending. The best spot to do this is on a boat at Peanut Island in Riviera Beach. One side of the island is known as the ÂfamilyÂŽ side, while a reality show could be made of the party on the islandÂs opposite side. Alcohol possession is restricted to permitted areas and strongly enforced. 6500 Peanut Island Road, West Palm BeachBEST SIGNATURE DRINK>> The Capital Grille Stoli Doli Indulge in Capital GrilleÂs signature Stoli Doli, a pineapple-infused Stoli Vodka martini, aged seven to 10 days to an absolutely divine perfection.

Legacy Place, 11365 Legacy Ave., Palm Beach Gardens; 630-4994 BEST PARTY BRUNCH >> Wine DiveOn Sundays, Wine Dive on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach basically turns into a club. During the day. Your body kind of plays tricks on you when you walk in, with loud beats and drinks coming from every direction as if it were a Friday or Saturday just after midnight. But itÂs ÂbrunchÂŽ and itÂs Sunday. Wine Dive is definitely a scene, and great for people-watching young party-goers. 319 N Clematis St, West Palm Beach; 318-8821 BEST RADIO SHOW HOSTS>> Mo & SallyKool 105.5Âs husband and wife duo Mo & Sally have a popular show over Palm Beach and the Treasure CoastÂs radio waves. Audiences find Monte Foster and Sally Sevareid sweet and charming. And they are in demand as hosts outside of the studio, frequently emceeing char-ity events and doing volunteer work. They just make you want to let out a really big ÂAwww!ÂŽBEST GUACAMOLE >> RoccoÂ’s TacosRoccoÂs Tacos has become a bit of an institution, now with locations in West Palm Beach, Boca, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach Gardens and Orlando, and with a Brooklyn, N.Y., location coming soon. ItÂs a toss-up what makes this Mexican dining experience so darn irresistible. ItÂs fun atmosphere, the food is fresh, and the tableside guacamole is to die for. ItÂll cost you a pretty penny, but itÂs so, so worth it. ThereÂs something addictive on those seasoned chips itÂs served with, too. Roccostacos.comBEST METEOROLOGIST >> Steve WeagleA familiar face in Palm Beach County since 1998 on WPTV, Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle delivers the best forecasts in Palm Beach Coun-ty. This Canadian has turned into quite the Florida beach bum, so he always covers the good stuff Â„ which is how itÂs looking on the coast. We love SteveÂs charming delivery, and we love his Snuggle Alerts, although he issues them few and far between with few cool days a year. BEST PLACE TO SPOT A NESTING SEA TURTLE >> Â“PierlessÂ” in JunoThe stretch of shore along Juno Beach is home to many an endangered sea turtle friend, and the best spot to watch a nesting sea turtle is at a beach known as ÂPierlessÂŽ in Juno Beach. If you happen to spot one, remember to respect these ancient creatures by observing them from a distance and eliminating any beach lighting (no lights, flash pho-tography, or bright clothing). Watching a sea turtle lay its eggs is a beautiful experience. 50 th 1964 2014 Museum, Gallery & School of Art Museum & Gallery: 373 Tequesta Drive Tequesta, Fla.
