A26 X Sixth-grader Michael Lesh has shaggy hair, hazel eyes and hockey-player shoulders. He says hes a better writer than talker. He loves math and he loves Wayne Gretzky. In his 12 years of life, he has learned he has to make the right choice, he cant count on others to do the right thing. His big brother taught him that. On June 15, 2002, Michaels brother Richard stopped at a 7-Eleven in Miami. He didnt know the area. He had diabetes. He wanted a Snickers and a soda. A man held a gun up to him. Asked for his wallet. Richard was a peaceful kid „ liked to watch Animal Planet, go skateboard-ing, play guitar „ he shrugged the guy off and walked away. The man shot him in the back. Richard died. He had $50 in his wallet, if that. Michael wrote his brothers story in an essay, part of the Do the Write Thing Challenge,Ž a program devel-oped by the National Campaign to Stop Violence that gives middle school students a chance to communicate the toll violence has taken in their lives, and explore their role in stopping it. Judges, lawyers, principals, sheriffs deputies and others involved in the program say it would be easy for these kids to keep quiet „ they are brave to speak up. Students say they chan-nel their inner strength in hopes of lending strength to others. In seven years, Palm Beach partic-ipation has grown from one school to 31 schools, from 2,000 essays to more than 25,000 essays. Chairman Bill Bone describes the essays as heart-warmingŽ and gut-wrenching.Ž A recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-vention estimates 200,000 bullied high school students are bringing weap-ons to school. Mr. Bone fears kids today have lost empathy, that they are immune to violence. The Challenge FORTY-ONE YEARS AFTER ITS FOUNDING, THE MEYER JEWISH Academy is coming to a new home.

Long ago, I married into a fam-ily-run farm and ranching operation in central Florida, one of thousands that populate the state. We grew several hundred acres of corn and managed a sizable herd of beef cattle. I know that being fiercely inde-pendent is a bone of necessity if you hope to make a living off the land. Yet going your own way contains seeds of misfortune if you are prone to making up your own rules as you go. It starts out small and snowballs into big. Twenty years later, you might be thinking like Cliven Bundy that your version of the universe is entitlement to break the law or worse. Conservatives declared Bundy an American folk hero for welching on 20 years worth of accumulated bills for grazing his cattle on public lands. A showdown occurred with all the drama of the gunfight at the O.K. Cor-ral. Thankfully, the self-deputized vigilantes supporting Bundys cause did not fire a barrage of bullets in defense of their hero. They instead rode their nags or buddy-upped in pickup trucks, wav-ing their weaponry as evidence of their courage, parading their itch to pick a fight. Rough and tumble, like coura-geous prairie dogs, their little commu-nity banded together, even the ladies agreeing to serve as a human barrier to take the first hits, should shots be fired. Oh, it was quite a scene. The cows must have looked on in puzzlement, wondering just what the fuss was about, grateful for their sepa-ration from the human herd milling with such unease outside their pen. The danger of a stampede was heavy in the air. The U.S. agents from the Bureau of Land Management made a prudent retreat, demonstrating intel-ligence superior to those with guns for brains trolling for violence. It was a classic showdown within a western motif. The confrontation was ripe for political opportunism; and like a desert rose, it fully bloomed once the dust-up settled from the initial showdown. In the weeks following, Bundy took to the airways denouncing the govern-ments overreachŽ to confiscate his cattle as penalty for his refusal to pay his bills. Conservative media pulled out the stops and hailed Bundy as a patriot, a mans man out of the mold of the Old West, fighting a modern day range war, challenging with testosterone the excess of big government, standing his ground for all Americans for whom big government is the enemy. Dissent to this self-serving characterization followed. A less flattering view is he is a deadbeat and lawless scofflaw, and his claim of rights to public prop-erty to inure private benefit entirely bogus. If you followed his lead, we could all run a bunch of hogs at Jonathan Dick-enson Park, no questions asked. If over-reach is going on, it is surely by Bundy. Nonetheless, the ingredients were there for a remake of a classic western, re-purposing Bundy as a John Wayne, ready to face down the federalist villain trying to steal his cattle. Then Bundy went off script, blew his lines and a plot twist ensued. Suddenly, our hero went from being the star in StagecoachŽ to a rider on horseback flapping around in a white robe in The Birth of a Nation.Ž It was moron adorationŽ gone amuck, the likes of which we have not seen in a while. Fear, ignorance and prejudice won the day as sensibilities evaporated under the emotional heat of stupidity. Conservatives were hornswoggled by a white guy who, under their adoration, assumed they would all agree that slav-ery and a life picking cotton would have a better outcome for African Ameri-cans than present circumstance. Those who promoted Bundy as a leading man in their right-wing theatrics headed for the exits, with no thought of his redemption. I think they should have offered to buy tickets for Bundy and his folks to see Twelve Years a Slave,Ž sug-gesting they skip the popcorn. Ranchers in Florida raise the third largest number of cattle of any state east of the Mississippi. Many have been at it for multiple generations so they appreciate the importance of steward-ship in managing their enterprise. They dont presume like Bundy that public lands are theirs to exploit for personal gains in defiance of the law. Nor are they subject to the kind of cheap-shot patriotism that the dema-gogues purvey while waving the flag every time a Cliven Bundy appears on the scene to puppet their cause. Genu-ine patriots pledge allegiance to the United States of America and actually mean it. Thats a far cry from the anar-chy Bundy and his militia offer as an alternative.

In 1965, he was shot down in his A-6 during a bombing run over North Viet-nam. He became a captive for more than seven years and endured an unimagi-nable regime of torture, humiliation and isolation, managing to retain his dignity and spirit even as his captors went to hideous lengths to snuff them out.Soon after his capture, Denton was taken to Hoa Lo Prison, or the Hanoi Hilton, where he led the resistance to the North Vietnamese efforts to extract pro-paganda confessions from their prisoners.As Denton related in his book, When Hell Was in Session,Ž they tried to starve one out of him. He began to hallucinate, but he still refused. They took him to the Meathook RoomŽ and beat him. Then, they twisted his arms with ropes and relented just enough to keep him from passing out. They rolled an iron bar on his legs and jumped up and down on it. For hours. Denton agreed finally to give them a little of what they wanted, and he hadnt recovered from this ordeal when the Vietnamese told him he would appear at a press conference. Denton told a fellow POW that his plan was to blow it wide open.Ž He famously blinked T-O-R-T-U-R-E in Morse code during the interview, a mes-sage picked up by naval intelligence and the first definitive word of what pris-oners were being subjected to. When asked what he thought of his govern-ments war, Denton replied, Whatever the position of my government is, I believe in it, yes sir. Im a member of that government, and its my job to sup-port it, and I will as long as I live.Ž The legend is that under the pressure of the Inquisition, Galileo said of the Earth, Yet, it moves.Ž That Martin Luther said, Here I stand, I can do no other.Ž Dentons words arent an embel-lishment. They were seen by millions when they were broadcast in the United States, and he almost immediately paid for them in torment so horrifying that he desperately prayed that he wouldnt go insane. When the American involvement in the war ended and the POWs finally were released, Denton made a brief statement on the tarmac upon his return, no less powerful for its simplicity and understatement: We are honored to have had the opportunity to serve our country under difficult circumstances. We are profoundly grateful to our com-mander in chief and to our nation for this day. God bless America.Ž A Roman Catholic, Denton told his family that he had forgiven his captors and, after recounting to them what he had gone through, that he didnt want to speak to them of it again. His son James says he often heard him say „ with typi-cal modesty „ Thats over. I dont want to be a professional jailbird.Ž He certainly wasnt that. Denton went on to become a U.S. senator from Ala-bama. With his passing, weve lost a hero whose example of faithfulness and duty should be for the ages. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Solitary confinement is not the answerThere has been much attention, and rightly so, on the CIAs extensive use of torture, which the Senate Select Com-mittee on Intelligence is said to have documented in its still-classified 6,000-page report. The use of torture is not limited to the CIA, however. It is all too common across the United States. Solitary confinement is torture, and it is used routinely in jails, prisons and immigration detention facilities here at home. Grass-roots movements that have been pressuring for change are begin-ning to yield significant results. The coalitions include prisoners, their fami-lies, a broad swath of legal and social-justice groups and, increasingly, prison guards and officials themselves. One official who worked to reduce the use of solitary confinement was Tom Clements. The executive director of Colorados Department of Correc-tions, Clements was at home on March 19, 2013, when his doorbell rang. As he opened the door, he was gunned down, murdered by Evan Ebel, who had been released from solitary confine-ment directly to the street less than two months earlier. The small, nonprofit Colorado Independent was the only out-let to link the murder to the psychologi-cal damage that Ebel suffered in solitary confinement. Another ex-prisoner who corresponded with Ebel disclosed text messages with him, shortly before Ebel killed Clements. One text read, im just feeling peculiar & the only way i know i know to remedy that is via use of vio-lence.Ž Ironically, Clements was trying, successfully, to reform Colorados solitaryconfinement policies, referred to there as administrative segregation.Ž A year before his murder, Clements told The Colorado Independents Susan Greene, Theres a lot of research around soli-tary and isolation in recent years, some tied to POWs and some to corrections ... long periods of isolation can be coun-ter-productive to stable behavior and long-term rehabilitation goals.Ž He was concerned with the direct release of prisoners from solitary back into the community, a practice that likely con-tributed to his murder. His successor, Rick Raemisch, continues to pursue the reforms started by Tom Clements. Raemisch subjected himself to over 20 hours in solitary, and emerged even more committed to changing the sys-tem. Juan Mendez, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, issued a special report on solitary confinement in 2011, concluding Segregation, iso-lation, separation, cellular, lockdown, Supermax, the hole, Secure Housing Unit (SHU) ... whatever the name, soli-tary confinement should be banned by states as a punishment or extortion technique.Ž His latest full report on global torture includes several noted alleged excesses by the United States, including abusive solitary confinement practiced from Afghanistan to Guanta-namo Bay to New York state, Louisiana and California. In California, prisoners went on a hunger strike for months last year, pro-testing solitary confinement, gaining widespread public support and achiev-ing some of their demands. In Louisiana, Albert Woodfox has been in solitary confinement for more than 42 years, found guilty of murdering a prison guard, despite the lack of any physi-cal evidence linking him to the crime and eyewitnesses placing him elsewhere at the time. Courts have ordered his release three times, the most recent of which was appealed by the state of Louisiana. A federal appeals court is expected to decide on his case soon. Studies have found that irreversible psychological damage can occur after just 15 days in solitary confinement. The UNs Mendez alleges that New York states prison system is exces-sively harsh in its use of solitary. The New York Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement is pushing a bill, the Humane Alternatives to Long-Term (HALT) Solitary Confinement Act. The bill would limit such confinement to 15 days, and create special treatment facili-ties for prisoners suffering from mental illness, and grant more time outside the cell, including contact with others. Even prison guards are weighing in against solitary. In Texas, Lance Lowry, president of AFSCME Local 3807 of the Texas Correctional Employees, wrote an open letter to Texas prison officials that called on them to reduce the use of solitary confinement, including on the states death row. He told me on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, What we found is the overall use of solitary confinement in Texas was not serving its intended purposes. We went from a couple hundred lock-up cells to over 8,000 at one point.Ž Recidivism, vio-lence and the overall financial costs of incarceration are all increased by the use of solitary confinement. Most importantly, its torture. Its time to put an end to solitary confinement. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,200 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickLast month, the folks at Banfield Pet Hospital, who care for more than 2.7 mil-lion pets nationwide, including 470,000 cats, released their 2014 State of Pet Health report. It included a startling statistic: a 48 percent increase in the prevalence of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection in cats seen at Banfields more than 850 hospitals. Does it mean your cat is at risk? Not necessarily. A lot depends on his lifestyle. Cats can get FIV through contact with saliva from an infected cat. Cats with the disease typically acquire it through bite wounds when they get in fights with FIV-infected cats. Thats a really good reason to keep your cat indoors. We dont know whats behind the increased incidence in FIV infection. Its not explained by changes in the rates of testing or of vaccination. What is known from the report is that male cats are three times as likely to be infected with FIV as female cats, and that adult, unneutered cats were 3.5 times more likely to be infected with FIV as adult cats who were spayed or neutered. That makes sense, because unneutered tomcats are the ones who are going to be out there fighting and biting. Interestingly, a recent study found no evidence that FIV-positive cats living peacefully with disease-free cats passed on the disease. In the same study, FIV-positive mothers did not pass on the disease to their kittens. So while the possibility of transmission is there, simple exposure to an infected cat may not be as risky as previously thought „ as long as the cats are friendly toward each other. There are a couple of important things to know about FIV. First, while FIV is con-tagious among cats, its not transmissible to humans. Second, its not a death sentence. Its not curable, but with good care, cats with FIV infections can live long, healthy lives. FIV affects the immune system, so cats with the disease can be more prone to respiratory, dental, eye or skin infections. Cats with FIV may develop a fever or seem tired all the time. Chronic diarrhea and weight loss are also associated with FIV. Some cats dont show any signs, although they are still infectious. Protect an FIV-infected cat from injuries or wounds that could cause secondary bacterial infections as well as from other viruses and parasites that could cause illness. Depending on your cats lifestyle, environment and clinical signs, your vet-erinarian may recommend other measures as well to manage the disease. The most important safety measure you can take is to keep your cat indoors „ both to prevent exposure to potential injuries and infections and to make sure he doesnt spread the disease to other cats. A vaccination is available for FIV, but it is not among the core vaccines rec-ommended by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Thats because it doesnt protect against all the strains of FIV and because the FIV test cannot dis-tinguish between the actual disease and the antibodies produced by vaccination. That can make test results unclear if a cats vaccination history is unknown. The AAFP recommends the vaccine only for cats who are at high risk of infection „ in other words, cats who go outdoors. Those cats should have a microchip indicating that theyve had the vaccination to prevent any confusion about their infection status.Your veterinarian may suggest testing your cat for FIV if she has a fever, frequent infections or other signs of illness. A simple and accurate blood test gives rapid results. Kittens born to FIV-infected mothers may test positive while they are young, but nega-tive after they are 6 months old, so it can be a good idea to retest them after that age. Q Roaming outdoors puts cats, especially males, at higher risk for exposure to FIV. >> Dutchess is a 3-yearold spayed Pit Bull. She’s a happy-go-lucky girl who loves human friends.

This reflects a 4 per-cent increase from 2013, according to a recent AAA Con-sumer Pulse sur-vey on summer travel plans. This marks the third consecutive year that AAA data show a steady summer travel season in Florida „ a positive sign for the travel industry,Ž said Jessica Brady, AAA Travel, The Auto Club Group. Although theme parks, beach getaways, and city desti-nations top 2014s summer travel list, the majority of people havent final-ized their vacation plans. Travelers who wait until the last minute to book their hotel, rental car, or airline ticket can expect to pay more than if they book weeks in advance. Just as travel demand is expected to increase this summer, the cost to vacation could also rise if you do not have a plan,Ž Brady added. The majority of travelers (59 percent) plan to spend $1,500 or less on travel in the next three months. More than half (62 percent) will pay for a hotel during a summer vacation, while 36 percent will cut costs by staying with family and friends. Although only 35 percent plan to rent a car this summer, nearly three in five travelers (57 percent) plan to drive at least five hours to get to their destination or for sightseeing. Floridians are fortunate because most destinations like beaches and theme parks are within a one day drive,Ž said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA … The Auto Club Group. Gaso-line prices are beginning to let up just in time for the busy summer driving season. Pump prices are not expected to have a negative impact on travel plans.Ž Consumers who use a AAA travel agent to help plan their vacation can save up to 35 percent on average with hotel, rental car, and inclusive pack-aging no matter the destination.

This was not punishment, it was necessity based on sudden catastrophic climate change at 9,000 feet „ from under-the-warm-night-blankets to out-in-the-frigid-morning-kitchen. The coal shed rose behind the springhouse, next to the woodpile. I used to watch that old woman stand out there in a flower-print dress, axe in hand, splitting wood like Paul Bunyan. But she preferred not to handle coal until she was putting it in the stove. It was a coal and wood stove. Once you got it going with kindling and split wood, a couple of chunks of coal about the size of grapefruits could burn slowly and steadily for hours on end. The coal shed was as big as a couple of outhouses „ or, for the inexperi-enced, about the size of Bryant McKin-nie, the 6-foot 8-inch Miami Dolphins tackle who weighed in at 352 pounds. You could put a lot of coal in it. Remembering that the other day, I decided to just admit my complicity in the global warming crisis. The fact is, Im addicted to plant prehistory on this green-and-blue planet. Most coal, as you know, dates from about 300 to 360 million years ago, and all of it is just once-upon-a-time plants. I love the stuff. Petroleum products, too, because theyre just so much fun to use. If you cant smoke em, at least you can burn em. But now I have to own up.Hi. My names Roger. Im a coal-aholic.Ž I also have to own up to climate change created by coal and petroleum, a thing Ive never cared a sniff about. Traditionally, I couldnt have cared less whether the day was hot or cold, snowy or sunny, dry or humid, flood-ing or just fooling around. If it was weather, it was OK with me. But nowadays thats the opinion of a bonehead, not merely a baldhead. I prefer not to be the former. Or the lat-ter, but you make adjustments where you can and quit worrying about the rest. Climate change will be the last major problem we as a species ever face if we cant figure out how to quit pouring carbon dioxide and methane and ignorant opinions into the air. Its not just the fossil fuels we use, though. Its the cows, too. Like coal, cows are also dear to my heart. (Hi. My names Roger. Im a cow-a-holic.Ž) Which makes me suspicious of things that start with C,Ž even if I also love them: Coal. Cuba. Colorado. Cows. Cows are known as ruminant livestock,Ž like sheep, buffalo and goats, which means they chew, digest, belch and fart, to put it bluntly. Sort of like Cubans and Coloradoans. Horses fart too, but Horse,Ž like Human,Ž starts with an H,Ž not a C,Ž so obviously theyre innocent. In fact, all that methane gas, released by cows or decaying vegetation, is a lot more damaging „ by 20 times, scientists say „ than CO-2 emissions from coal and other fossil fuels. And the bovine count is terrifying. About 1.5 billion cows are now breaking wind on the planet, includ-ing 87.7 million in the United States and 1.62 million in Florida, which was once ranked the second biggest cow-producing state behind Texas. Now weve fallen to about 17th place. That leaves Texas still strong at number one, with 10.9 million cows „ well ahead of number two Nebraskas 6.15 million. In the U.S., about 20 percent of our methane emissions come from those cows. And cows world-wide are said to be responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gasses that cause global warming. They also produce more than 65 percent of the ammonia emit-ted into the atmosphere, which creates acid rain. Meanwhile, the regional effects of cows are not pretty. Roughly a half-million of them are crapping all over the Kissimmee River basin, which empties into Lake Okeechobee, which empties into the once-fecund water systems that roll out east, west and south of the Lake, stretching through the Everglades and into Florida Bay. But that aint nothin but a hound dog. Theres a dead zone about the size of New Jersey, more than 8,100 square miles, lying in the Gulf of Mexico, so rendered by waste washed down the Mississippi River and into the gulf from farms, ranches and feedlots east of the Continental Divide. Thats a lot more than a hound dog.Like most everything else, though, this is an opportunity. But not to Americans, apparently. Too many of us are still foolishly questioning the hard data pointing to climate change. Or worse, were simply ignoring it. But the Argentinians and the French arent so obtuse. Theyve provided solutions, at least where cows are con-cerned. The French, of course, think the solution to cows is better food. So instead of feeding their cows a cornand soy-based grain diet, some of them have switched to a mix of alfalfa, linseed and grass, which can cut the methane emissions from those cows by 20 percent, they say. Argentinas National Institute of Agricultural Technology, meanwhile, has a solution that could save the planet: the new fartpack.Ž As you know, Argentinians are mostly impatient gauchos who drink heavily from hip flasks. But when it comes to cows, they know what theyre doing. In this case, according to recent news reports, they jam a couple of tubes into the south end of a cow going north „ specifically into the rumen, the biggest digestive tract in the animal. Then, they attach a bag to the other end, and strap it to the cow. Appar-ently, the fartpack can collect 300 liters of methane a day, enough to run either a car or a refrigerator for about 24 hours. Why hasnt the USDA thought of something like that? Maybe we should eat more Argentinian beef. But somebody would have to burn a lot of petroleum to get it here.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYwent from the bottom up. What is our education program? What is our philos-ophy? What is the mission? Whats the objective? And from there, we designed a school that complemented it.Ž The two-story, 68,000-square-foot Meyer Academy will house a multime-dia center, science labs, a state-of-the-art TV studio and a production room. Class-rooms will be equipped with advanced technologies from iPads to laptops. The academy, founded in 1973, is known for its intimacy. Currently home to about 280 students, it offers classes to students ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade. It offers International Baccalaureate and Judaic studies for its middle school students. This is its third year to offer the IB pro-gram. Tuition starts at $14,850 per year. This school is built for 336, which is maximum capacity,Ž Mr. Ichilov said. That is 18 students per class, two class-es per grade, K-5, and 20 students per class grades 6, 7 and 8.Ž The building was designed to highlight that one-on-one approach to edu-cation. We didnt build this school with visions of thousands of students,Ž said Mr. Ichilov, whose daughters are Meyer alumnae. We like the intimacy and the relationships that our students are able to develop with their teachers as well as with each other across grade levels. ƒ You lose that along the way if you get too big.Ž That scale works well for parents. You feel like youre part of a family,Ž said Miki Leibowitz, a Palm Beach Gardens mother of two and director of marketing at Leibowitz Real-ty Group who also sits on the schools board. Everyone in the administration knows the families. You really feel like youre part of the community.Ž But dont equate the small size with low standards. Being small the way it is, it does not stop from being super high-tech,Ž said Mrs. Leibowitz. Those who are old-fashioned enough to remember chalkboards will be disap-pointed. You mean whiteboards, right? Chalk is really lethal to technology,Ž Mr. Ichi-lov said. Classrooms will be outfitted with Apple televisions on which the kids can interact with the teachers and project the screens of the Macbooks and iPads onto the classrooms larger screen. Its 21st-century technology, without question. This is probably going to be the fin-est elementary and middle school in the country,Ž predicted William Meyer, son of the academys name benefactors, Arthur and Sydelle Meyer. The schools current campus, on Military Trail in West Palm Beach, will be absorbed into Bill Kochs Oxbridge Academy, which already occupies the neighboring building that once housed the Kaplan branch of the Jewish Com-munity Center. When the Meyers became involved, the Jewish Community Day School, as it was called, had a campus on Parker Avenue south of Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach. Over time, that physical plant became completely outdated,Ž Mr. Meyer said. My parents felt strongly that they should make a gift that would provide a first-class education.Ž Mr. Meyers children attended the academy. And they had very good results in high school and college. They were very well prepared for two rigorous pro-grams,Ž he said. His son went to Suncoast High School in Riviera Beach and attended the schools IB and math/science programs at the same time. He graduated and attended the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His daughter went to Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach with a concentration in communication; when she entered the University of Miami, she already had completed her first year graphic arts courses in high school. Its really something the Jewish community should be proud of,Ž Mr. Meyer said. There is a big emphasis on Jewish studies. In the media center, or Great Room, one wall will be designed to look like Noahs Ark. Our media center is going to be one of the crown jewels of the school and the way that its set up is that its an open room so children can be active,Ž Mr. Ichilov said. There will be a broadcast studio; another wall will offer Windows to the World.Ž Technology is a major part of our world,Ž Mr. Ichilov said, gesturing toward a wall. Right here, we will have a media screen that will be able to show at any time maybe the Great Wall of China, maybe the Kotel in Jerusalem.Ž The campus wraps around a space dubbed the Israel Courtyard, which will have a map of Israel inlaid on the pave-ment. We were wanting the campus to be part of the learning experience,Ž Mr. Ichilov said. Therell be significant cit-ies of Israel on the map and theyll be learning that geography every day. In the back we have a U.S. map.Ž Taking another cue from Israel, walls of the courtyard are trimmed in Jerusa-lem stone; one wall is completely cov-ered in the yellow-hued stone. This wall is obviously facing east. If you notice, theres a tile missing and that space is going to be a mailbox,Ž Mr. Ichi-lov said. You can come and leave notes for the Kotel.Ž The Kotel, or Western Wall, is one of the holiest spots of Judaism. Pilgrims to Jerusalem frequently place slips of paper bearing prayers between the stones of the wall. The students study Hebrew from the beginning; in the spring of their eighth-grade year, they make a two-week trip to Israel. Eighth-graders will be responsible for collecting those notes and taking them to the Kotel in Israel when they go in the spring,Ž Mr. Ichilov said. As part of the schools grand opening celebration, the Meyer Academy board recently announced it would be pro-viding bookend giftsŽ to all students enrolled in the inaugural kindergarten class. These kindergarten students will receive $1,000 as a welcome gift toward this coming years 2014-2015 tuition, and $1,000 toward their eighth-grade gradu-ation trip to Israel. Back inside the space, the Torah Scroll Lobby was built with five corners that will hold Torah scrolls. The area leads into a sanctuary that will be used for prayer, as well as for board meetings. Beyond that sacred space is Strauss Hall, which does double duty as a caf-eteria and performing arts space, with a large stage and sound booth, a full kitchen and space to seat 350-400 peo-ple comfortably auditorium-style. One of the interesting things about this room is no two walls are completely parallel so they dont echo,Ž said Jerry Rappaport, owners representative for the project. Architects also varied the ceiling levels to enhance the acoustics of the space. That emphasis on the arts and science reminds visitors that the academy is not just about being a religious school. People may think the school has a dogmatic curriculum, Mr. Ichilov said. As a Jewish day school, we teach that whatever you do at home is the right way to do it. Were not teaching the chil-dren that theres a right and a wrong way to do this or that,Ž he said. That is important, Mrs. Leibowitz said.Its very much about the regular academics, and if you are Jewish, its all an important situation because its all with-in your school day and that is important as well,Ž she said. There also is that linguistic bonus.They come out speaking Hebrew. My kids have traveled to Israel and they speak fluently. Its just a wonderful expe-rience on every front,Ž Mrs. Leibowitz said. It was a great experience for my kids and Im glad to stay involved.Ž In addition to attending to students spiritual and scholastic well-being, the academy also works to help kids stay fit. The gym next door at the JCC is available for some activities; the academys campus will have soccer and softball fields that will be covered with artificial turf. Its the same kind as at the Baltimore Ravens stadium. Its certainly not the kind I grew up with,Ž Mr. Ichilov said, laughing and r emembering the c oarse Astroturf of another generation. So why use the artificial turf?Part of the reason we do that is because here in Florida in order to maintain grass, you have to put down a lot of chemicals, and we want to keep the chemicals away from the kids,Ž Mr. Rappaport said. The space was beginning to take shape during that recent tour. Drywall and knock-down were in place, and workers were installing cabinets in the classrooms. Mr. Ichilov had a hard time containing his enthusiasm, and there was a bounce in his step as he led visitors from room to room. I get giddy every time I come,Ž he said as he showed off art studios and science labs. The enthusiasm is infectious.Hes quite excited. Hes had the benefit of seeing it rise from nothing to its present condition, and everybody who sees the school is overwhelmingly impressed,Ž Mr. Meyer said, adding that he recently had toured the building; his mother will visit once construction is completed. Its really something the Jewish community should be proud of.ŽMEYERFrom page 1 LEIBOWITZ MEYER COURTESY PHOTOThe campus wraps around a space dubbed the Israel Courtyard, which will have a map of Israel inlaid on the pavement.ALYSON SELIGMAN/COURTESY PHOTOThe Israel Courtyard under construction.

He feels all students that take part in the Challenge, whether they write an essay or participate in classroom discussion, cannot help but be touched. Kids are so vulnerable, so susceptible, so wise. They admit that this program makes a difference because it makes kids talk about (violence),Ž Mr. Bone says. Even the most jaded kid, if he hears a story like Michaels story, hes moved.Ž Out of the 25,000 essays submitted, one boy and one girl are chosen as ambas-sadors,Ž receiving an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., to represent the Palm Beach County School District in a national ceremony. Kennedy Thomas, an eighth-grader at Crestwood Community Middle School in Royal Palm Beach, was selected as ambassador after sharing the sensitivi-ties of her mothers addiction and the subsequent abuse she and her sister endured. Michael, who lives in Boca Raton and attends Don Estridge High Tech Middle School, was also chosen. As ambassador, he will be flying to D.C. the day before Fathers Day. His brother was shot the day before Fathers Day, 12 years ago. The serendipity of the trip makes Michael feel like hes not doing this alone, his brothers doing this with him, fighting bullies, fighting violence. Michael was 10 months old when his brother died. As he writes in his essay, The police never found his killer. He robbed me of ever getting to know my brother. He took away the time we would have shared. Its hard to forgive him.Ž Michael wrote his essay in two days. He wrote it out by hand first, read it over, made some changes and typed it out. When he handed it in to his teacher, he told her it was the hardest thing hes ever done. I thought I cant keep it a secret anymore,Ž Michael says. I thought it would make a difference. I thought finally, it would make a difference.Ž Michael wants everyone to know what happened to his brother. He wants peo-ple to see how a single act of violence affects many lives. But what he wants his essay to do most, he wants it to make people think before they act. In it, he writes: I wonder if the killer would have made a different choice if he had pictured my family crying over Richard at his funeral? Would it have made him more sympathetic, knowing how many peoples lives he was destroy-ing? Maybe he would have a different perspective if he knew that over 11 years later we still think about Richard every day.Ž Kennedy says the whole goal of writing her essay was to reach just one person. She says she had to grow up fast. She feels a lot of kids these days have to grow up fast. Thats why she opened up about addiction and abuse in her essay, so some other young woman may read it and see she is not alone. Honestly, I wasnt going to put any of that in there,Ž Kennedy says, But I became very motivated about touching other people who are dealing with the same stuff I had to deal with. I felt if I could give strength to somebody dealing with it, it would be completely worth it, to share part of myself with an unknown person.Ž Disclosing her moms struggle with boyfriends and drugs, Kennedy writes in her essay, ƒ the new guy would always end up beating her and then leaving, and then she would always end up beating us.Ž Thinking back on how it felt to write her essay, on how it felt to lay such details bare, Kennedy says, I am not ashamed of these experiences because they made me stronger as a person ƒ I feel I would have been just an ordinary person without these experiences. I feel it makes me unique. I choose to embrace them, rather than shun them.Ž Kennedy would like to sit on the Supreme Court one day. At age 14, she has a nose ring, side-swept bangs, shes starting to experiment with eyeliner and mascara. The girl has brains and nerve and she likes to be rebellious. She feels people are scared to bash guns, but in her essay, she writes, Lets be hon-est, who uses a gun for any-thing other than killing when needed?Ž Kennedy feels she can take a stand against violence by wearing empowering T-shirts. She designed one of her own. A hand stops a fist. The shirt reads: Im a friend. Not a fighter. Creativity is my outlet from violence. Whats yours?Ž Kennedy drew it out on her sketchpad. Wrote out the words. She took out the hearts and the b utterfly. She did not want to make it too girly. She wants guys to wear it, too. Kennedy says she like school, but she does not like the way kids treat each other in middle school. She says when kids pick on kids, the look on their faces, they try to make it look like theyre tak-ing it as a joke, but she can see that deep down it really hurts them. Making an observation, she says, People really only mess with the quiet ones.Ž To the bullies and the bullied, Kennedy says, Everyone has their own inner strength ƒ Sometimes its hard to show it.Ž Pepe Fanjul Jr., of the Florida Crystals sugar family, will pay for Kennedy and Michael to go to Washington, D.C. He pays for the ambas-sadors to travel to the Washington every year. He also spon-sors a recognition luncheon at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts for hundreds of final-ists to attend with their parents, teachers and principals. Mr. Bone says Mr. Fanjul contributes a lot of money but does not care for any fanfare. As a judge, Mr. Fanjul reads the essays and narrows hundreds down to a Top 10 list. Some of the essays are about bullying, others are about coming from broken homes. Many are an inspiration,Ž Mr. Fanjul says. When you read them, it makes you want to support the program over and over again.Ž Q INKFrom page 1 PHOTOS BY ATHENA PONUSHIS/FLORIDA WEEKLYKennedy Thomas designed a T-shirt against violence. She and Michael Lesh, below, will represent Palm Beach County in Washington, D.C.Michael Lesh says he wrote his essay because, “I thought finally, it would make a difference.” Initially, Kennedy Thomas’ T-shirt design had butterflies. She removed them to make it tougher.“Kids are so vulnerable, so susceptible, so wise. They admit that this program makes a difference because it makes kids talk about (violence) ...

A16 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYAs a patient, you have a role in preventing surgical infectionsIn a recent study performed by Consumer Reports that ranked 2,590 hospi-tals nationwide on overall patient-safety performance, Palm Beach Gardens Med-ical Center ranked one of the highest in South Florida. Of the many factors used to determine each hospitals score, one was the number of hospital-acquired infections. Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center was reported as having zero surgical site infections. Although the hospital plays a significant role in preventing surgical infec-tions, as a patient, you are responsible for your health care as well. If you have been scheduled for surgery, here are some ways you can help prevent surgi-cal infections:Before you go to the hospital:Stop smoking. If you smoke, consider stopping smoking a few weeks before your surgery. Smoking may increase your chance of developing a lung infection fol-lowing a surgery and may inhibit healing. Talk to your doctor about chronic medical conditions. Some chronic medi-cal conditions such as diabetes increase your risk of infections. Ask your doctor about monitoring your glucose (sugar) levels during and after surgery, especially if you are having cardiac surgery. Find out what you can do to keep your blood sugar levels in con-trol before, during and after surgery. The stress of surgery can make glucose levels fluctuate. Controlled blood glucose levels help you to resist infection better.Consider losing weight. If you are overweight, try to lose some of those extra pounds before your surgery is scheduled. Patients who are overweight are more likely to develop complica-tions after surgery. Eat healthier. Make sure your diet includes healthy food items that are rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. Ask about how your skin will be prepared before surgery. Your doctor may give you special instructions for clean-ing the surgical site before your surgery. Some physicians use a special product, such as chlorhexidine, that helps reduce the risk of infection. Do not shave the surgical site. Shaving has been shown to cause skin irritation that increases the risk of infection. If hair must be removed before surgery, ask that clip-pers be used instead of a razor. Ask your doctor about keeping you warm during surgery. Operating rooms are often kept cold, but for many types of surgery, patients who are kept warm resist infection better. This can be done with special blankets, hats and booties and warmed IV fluids.While you are in the hospital:Clean your hands. Hand washing, using either soap and water or an alco-hol-based hand sanitizer, remains our best defense against infections. Hand washing is recommended when your hands are visibly soiled (dirty), before eating, and after using the restroom. You also should remind visitors to wash their hands. If you dont see a health care employee clean their hands, ask them to do so before touching you. Check dressings and tubes. If you notice that a dressing has become loose or is wet, ask a nurse to change it for you. Bandages should stay clean and dry to help protect your skin. Also, tell your nurse if a drainage tube or catheter becomes loose. Protect your urinary tract system. You may need a urinary catheter follow-ing your surgery, but remind the doctors and nurses that you want it removed as soon as possible since this will reduce your risk of infection. Its also important that you drink as many fluids as your doctor allows to help flush your urinary tract system. Breathe and move. If your doctor prescribes breathing exercises follow-ing surgery, make sure you follow the instructions for frequency and duration of the exercises. These will help keep your lungs clear. You also should be as active as your doctor will allow. Even if its just a slow walk across the room, you are helping your body heal. Avoid spreading germs. You should try not to touch your mouth or eyes with your hands. Do not set food or utensils on furniture or bed sheets. Germs can live on surfaces for days and may cause infections if they get into your mouth. When you get ready to go home, make sure you understand all your doc-tors instructions, including: Q What medicines you should take and how often they should be taken. Q Bathing instructions (sponge bath, shower or tub baths). Q Incision care instructions such as how to change dressings and tips for keeping the area clean. Q What activity levels are allowed, including whether you can drive or if there are limitations on lifting heavy objects. Q When you should schedule followup appointments. You also should know about warning signs that make it necessary to call your physician. These may include fever, increased pain, drainage, and redness or swelling around the incision site. At home, you should drink plenty of fluids, get regular exercise and follow good hygiene practices. For more information or for a free physician referral, call 625-5070 or see pbgmc.com. Q Debilitating pain can lead patients down a dangerous path Shelley shifted her position, but no matter how hard she tried, she couldnt find a way to make herself feel comfortable. She fought back tears. The throbbing in her lower back was excruciating. Shed battled this pain for years following a car accident. The aching was nothing new. She and her doctors had tried everything possible to treat it, but nothing had eased her suffering. Shelley found some relief in painkillers. But, her last dose had been two hours ago and she was not due for another dose anytime soon. Should she take another pill anyway? She deliberated. She knew her doctors were upset that shed been upping her usage on her own, but she didnt think she really had a choice. The painkillers werent terrific, but they were the only means of some temporary relief. What worried her, though, was that she was running out of pills. Shelleys doctors were reluctant to increase the dosage, warning her she was becoming dependent. Shelley had become increasingly more evasive when her doctor expressed concern and asked her pointed questions. Shelley also didnt tell him that shed made an appointment with another doctor and had been given another, stronger prescription. She hated lying, but no one understood what she was going through. She felt she had no choice.Those who suffer from chronic, debilitating pain and the professionals who treat them face an enormous challenge. When severe pain is inadequately treated, the afflicted individuals may suffer a diminished quality of life, with compromised functioning and a despairing outlook on the future. Medi-cal providers and patients face a huge dilemma because opiates, the medicines prescribed that are most likely to offer the greatest relief, are often misused, abused and are oftentimes dangerous. Opiates „ or opioids „ are perhaps the most powerful prescription painkillers, manufactured to react on the nervous system in the same way as drugs derived from the opium poppy, much like heroin. The most commonly abused opiates include oxycodone (also known as Percodan, Roxiprin, Percocet, Roxicet and Oxycontin), hydrocondone, meperidine, hydromorphone and pro-poxyphene, among others. It is important to understand that there is a complex physiological phe-nomenon that occurs when opiates are ingested. Certain brain circuits that stimulate dopamine production are activated, so the pleasure center of the brain produces a feel goodŽ reaction that may ultimately cause cravings for increased amounts of the narcotics. For people with an inborn vulnerability to opiate addiction, taking these pain pills can lead to an intoxicating rush that makes the brain want more. The strong desire to repeat the euphoria further reinforces this cycle and sets the stage for potential addiction. In some individuals, there may be a strong psychological overlay impacting the pain experienced. The anticipation and/or fear of the suffering may actually intensify the sharpness of the pain. They may dread the possibility of being left to suffer without sufficient remedies, so they are acutely focused on securing sufficient means of relief, reinforcing the belief that it is crucial they stockpile an ever-increasing supply of medication as a safeguard. These individuals may also be prone to reach to the medica-tions to offer relief when they may be feeling acute anxiety or depressed mood, or as a misguided means for cop-ing and/or becoming high. A segment of those who become addicted may resort to desperate or illegal means to gain access to these narcotics, putting them-selves and others at great risk. Some individuals may be predisposed to becoming addicted to painkillers because they or their family members have a history of drug or alcohol abuse, a history of a mood or personality dis-order or a history of childhood sexual abuse. Unfortunately, pain sufferers are often misunderstood and criticized, rather than supported appropriately. It is important to remember that, in their eyes, the pain is a legitimate source of suffering. It is critically important to validate their distress, while at the same time identifying viable options to better treat and address the impact of chronic, debilitating pain. Doctors may be well served to regularly check in with their patients to assess their status. Concerns should be raised if medications are not being used as pre-scribed. Patients may be asked to bring in all medications to check how many are left, and where theyve been obtained. Some physicians will administer a urine test to assess levels when there are con-cerns. Obviously, the physician/patient relationship may be compromised with-out an ongoing demonstration of respect and compassion. Pain sufferers are often experiencing acute levels of distress and anxiety and may be greatly sensitive to criticism or disdain. Importantly, though, there are treatment options for those who have crossed a threshold and find themselves seri-ously impaired. There are many careful providers who specialize in the treat-ment of chronic pain, and will attempt to offer relief with non-addictive rem-edies, including anti-depressant medications, local anesthetics, acupuncture and chiropractic or massage therapies. The efforts of these diligent providers should not be undermined by the pub-lics legitimate outrage at unscrupulous individuals who illegally prescribe pain prescriptions for their own gain. Oftentimes, targeted psychological support may be a very valuable pallia-tive source. Many have found relief by practicing mindfulness meditation and relaxation techniques. Many psycho-therapists have offered assistance by treating clients with cognitive-behav-ioral and ACT therapeutic techniques, helping sufferers learn to change per-ceptions of their problems from overwhelmingŽ to manageable.Ž As some learn to not only identify negative thoughts and actions, but to adapt more positive coping strategies, they may experience greater relief over time. For those who have become seriously impaired in their dependence on these narcotics, they may be referred to twelve step programs for narcotic addictions, or specialized drug addic-tion treatment programs. Its important to remember that for most people, prescription painkillers can offer huge relief without problems. Responsible prescribers and informed consumers can take careful steps to actively monitor the pain management program to minimize the possibilities of addiction, before the situation becomes seriously out of hand.

Wisdom teeth are extracted when there is not enough room in the mouth to accommodate them. They are also removed as a preventative measure to avoid the pain, infection or disease that can occur while the teeth are erupting. Wisdom teeth are also removed when they present a health threat to surrounding teeth because they are impacted. A wisdom tooth is considered impacted when it is growing sideways, is only partially erupted, or is trapped beneath the gum line. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, the only treatment option is extraction. There can be serious health consequences if an impacted wisdom tooth is not removed. A poorly aligned impacted wisdom tooth may dam-age the roots of surrounding teeth. A partially erupted wisdom tooth may leave a hole where bacteria can enter the gum and cause an infec-tion. A cyst may develop around the impacted tooth, causing damage to the surrounding bone structure. Wisdom-tooth extraction is a very common procedure.

Eh?’ The Canadian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission in March reprimanded three pornography broadcast stations „ not for excessively erotic fare, but for violating Canadas protectionist, patriotic rules requiring that at least 35 percent of all con-tent be of Canadian origin. According to its notice, the 24-hour AOV Adult Movie Channel, XXX Action Clips and Maleflixxx were falling short of the 8 hours a day of north-of-the-border sex action (and, in an additional charge, were failing to provide enough closed captioning to accompany the YeahsŽ and Oh, babysŽ). Drunk logicQ Wendy Simpson, 25, explaining her DUI arrest during a March incident in Huddersfield, England, pointed out that she had just minutes earlier walked to a McDonalds for a late-night meal because she knew she was too inebri-ated to drive. However, the dining room was closed, and she was refused service at the drive-thru window because she was on foot, and, she said, the only option left for her was to go home, get her car and return to the drive-thru. On the way back, she was arrested. Q Efren Carrillo, a member of the board of supervisors of Californias Sonoma County, was charged with mis-demeanor peekingŽ last year in Santa Rosa after he, returning home from a club late at night, saw his female neigh-bors light on and decided to drop in on her (though he did not even know her name). He had knocked at her back patio door, carrying beers, but was dressed awkwardly, leading the woman to call 911. In retrospect,Ž the coun-ty supervisor told police afterward, I should have had my pants onŽ (instead of just his socks and underwear). (His trial was underway at press time.) Q Among the arguments offered in March by Darrious Mathis lawyers for his jury trial in Cobb County, Ga., (for assault, kidnapping and carjacking) was the assertion that Mr. Mathis needed no force in order to have sex with the female victim on the night in question „ because Mr. Mathis is such a good-looking man. (However, the jury was not so dazzled and convicted him on all charges.) IroniesQ Englands Stockport magistrates court levied the equivalent of a $13,000 fine in March against Lorraine White, 41, who runs a part-time service as a dominatrix (chaining up and whip-ping badŽ men) in a sex dungeon.Ž Her business is apparently perfectly legal; the citation was for violating fire codes because inspectors could not see how a client, being properly disciplined (handcuffed and chained), might escape the dungeon in the event of fire. Q The Food and Drug Administration has had run-ins with homeopathicŽ products that subtly market themselves as health remedies without ever hav-ing sought the required FDA approval. However, in March, a different problem arose, requiring the agency to order a recall of 56 different batches of homeo-pathic remedies made by the Ferndale, Washington, company Terra-Medica „ because they may have (accidentally) been genuine medicine. A variety of the firms capsules, tablets and supposi-tories, said the FDA, might have con-tained actual penicillin, inadvertently produced as a by-product of fermenta-tion. Q Tiffany Austin called a KTVU reporter in March after being dismissed as a member of the Planet Fitness Gym in Richmond, Calif., after only one 15-minute workout „ because she was too fitŽ and therefore making other members uncomfortable. Planet Fitness apparently takes seriously its business slogan guaranteeing no gymtimida-tion,Ž designed to keep out-of-shape women from feeling bad about them-selves. Said another member, to the reporter, Its unfair to show off your body.Ž The litigious societyQ A columnist for the Egyptian newspaper Al-Yawm Al-Sabi proposed in March that Egypt sue Israel in inter-national court for reparations for the 10 Biblical plagues cast from Hebrew curses, including boils, lice, locusts and turning the Nile River into blood. Ahmad al-Gamal asserted that Israelites swiped gold, silver and other precious items as they began their legendary desert wandering. Mr. Al-Gamal also wants reparations from Turkey (for the 16th-century Ottoman invasion), France (for Napoleons invasion in 1798), and Britain (for 72 years of occupation). Q A California model, Elizabeth Dickson, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles in March against Playboy Enterprises for an injury she suffered as a guest on a Playboy Channel cable TV show in 2012 when she allowed host Kevin Klein to tee a golf ball off of her rear end. According to the $500,000 lawsuit, Mr. Klein took a swing at the ball that was teed between her cheeks, missed, and struck her butt ocks hard, causing her pain, suffering, worrying and anxi-ety.Ž Rehabilitated Cook County, Ill., judge Cynthia Brim is awaiting the Illinois Courts Com-missions decision as she seeks to be reinstated following her suspension in 2012 for mental health issues. Ms. Brim has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, has been hospitalized mul-tipleŽ times since 1993 (according to a Chicago Sun-Times report), and now claims to be fine, provided she takes her meds on schedule „ which her doctor said she will need to do for the rest of her life. Her suspension came after a manic courtroom outburst lauding her heroic testiclesŽ and which preceded a scuffle with sheriffs deputies outside a county judicial building.

On bbb.org, we have free BBB Business Reviews on more than 17,000 companies that provide moving-related services.Ž A con artist with just a truck and a website can claim to be a legitimate mover with unfortunate results for con-sumers who dont check out a company in advance,Ž agreed AMSA president and CEO Linda Bauer Darr. When it comes to such an important decision, you can save yourself a lot of problems by identifying a mover who puts customer ser-vice and integrity first. For interstate moves, that means an AMSA-certified ProMover.Ž BBB and AMSA are offering the following tips for finding a trustworthy moving company: € Research the company thoroughly. While state regulations vary, all interstate movers must, at minimum, be licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. FMCSA assigns a unique motor carrier number that can be verified protectyourmove.gov. Also make sure you know whether you are dealing directly with a mover, or with a broker (middleman) who will refer your job to a mover you dont know. € Get at least three written in-home estimates. Not all price quotes online or over the phone are legitimate (or bind-ing), and crooks are not likely to send an estimator to your home in advance. Also, remember that the lowest estimate can sometimes be an unrealistic, low-ball offer, which may cost you more in the end. € Know your rights. Research your rights with either the FMCSA for inter-state moves, or with the appropriate state agency for moves just within that state. Interstate movers must give you two booklets detailing your rights which are also available online. If a company threatens to hold your belongings hos-tage,Ž enlist the help of BBB or local law enforcement. € Consider accepting full-value protection. It may cost a few dollars more, but it can provide some peace of mind and eliminate headaches after your move. Purchasing full (replacement) value pro-tection from your mover means any lost or damaged articles will be repaired or replaced, or a cash settlement will be made to repair the item or to replace it at its current market value, regardless of age. Its important to note, for example, that the required minimum coverage of 60 cents per pound would not cover the replacement cost of a flat panel TV if damaged in transit. The cost of full value protection must be included in the initial estimate you receive for an interstate move. FMCSA also requires interstate movers to offer arbitration to help settle disputed claims. € To check out a mover near you, and for more consumer information you can trust, visit moving.org and bbb.org.

The Art of Living Giving a fish, versus teaching to fish, versus gifting a bait shopGift giving to both nonfamily and charitable groups averages 6 percent of the average household budget. As such, it is a large portion of a budget and it is often one that is not well planned „ emotionally or financially. An often used expression related to gifting is: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The proverb is a form of tough love. It suggests that some giving is less than optimumƒ less than optimum for the person needing assistance and possibly an undesirable option by the would-be giver. It suggests that gifts do not solve all problems of need and that the per-son needing sustenance is better off to develop skills that can serve him or her for a lifetime. Though seemingly harsh, the expression is appropriate to situations where the recipient of a gift would be bet-ter off to learn a skill, get a job, etc. However, sometimes the expression is deftly employed to deflect a reasonable request for assistance or aid. So this expression is sometimes used rightly and sometimes wrongly. Many are surprised to learn that this expression was not birthed on U.S. soil. The wisdom travelled from the Far East, as it is an ancient Chinese proverb. Many would be puzzled to learn of this source, as we visualize Chinas populace as mired in poverty for centuries. The gut reaction, many would ask, Who in ancient China would have had a spare fish to give to a fellow man in need?Ž We all know of current circumstances when the giving (of fish) to our fellow man does not solve the need and, far worse, the gift creates a dependency, expectancy and an attitude of entitle-ment. Often, the gift robs the recipi-ent of the self-worth and self-esteem garnered by the struggles/labor/effort to affect a solution. We take objection to giving not just with regard to our personal giving to fellow man, but also church giving and government aid. We value teaching skills of self-sustenance. Of course there are circumstances when a fish needs to be given. Teach-ing fishing to elderly widows, orphans and young children is inappropriate, ill-timed and impossible. Declinations of gifts to such persons in need cannot be explained by this expressions tough love. It just doesnt apply. Sometimes givers find themselves betwixt and between.Ž Figuring what best applies (e.g., giving or teaching ƒor both) can be challenging. Givers ask themselves: Is it better to give or to teach self-sustenance?Ž The question is quickly followed by Do I have the time to teach others core sustenance skills?Ž or Do I really want to get that involved?Ž Giving the fish as well as coming along-side the person in financial need and teaching him or her how to right the ship is a double-fold commitment. Beyond our relationships with fellow man, the giving fish or teaching fishingŽ is of much greater importance when dealing with our children. They are raised seeing and knowing our giv-ing. Hopefully they are raised to want to learn to fish and with parents giving them as many life skills as possible. Our children will likely inherit much of our estate, but we do not want our giving to them to be a hindrance to their development of skills, discovery of their potential and full realization of healthy self-esteem and courage to handle lifes diverse problems. And so we often hold back giving to them until they have devel-oped skill-sets and behaviors that assure their independence and ability to provide for themselves and their dependents. Many parents are rethinking the best way to give to their children. Parents understand the harsh realities of the employment market, the very high rates of employment downsizing, the declin-ing business opportunities for the middle class and the competitive nature of the international labor force. For some par-ents, the solution is to help their children start their own business or to bring them into a family business such that it will be continued upon the parents death. This strategy covers a lot of the bases. Q In an environment of ever increasing taxation, a business that allows you to take legitimate business expenses (car, gas, travel, education, health care, etc.) This does not mean that you falsely take deductions. It means that as a business owner you can choose your car type; the quality of the health-care program; the industry conferences to attend, etc. Q In an environment of higher turnover of middle class managerial positions, owning your own business assures that the terms of your exit from the business have greater probability of being determined by you rather than a strange corporate acquirer or a new ax-wielding, corporate downsizing expert. Q In an environment in which grandchildren face great temptations to dissociate from the family and or choose drugs, alcohol or fast driving or retail-therapy, a family-owned business can capture the interest and aspirations of grandchildrenƒ and keep them closer to the values and lifestyle that parents long to instill. As such is the case, the U.S. version of the proverb might be expanded: Buy your children a (fishing) business instead of gifts (of fish) but still teach them to fish so that they can manage their business and/or create skills for self-sustenance.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Memorabilia traces early roots of America’s pastime BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Special to Florida WeeklyBaseball may have been first mentioned in the United States in 1791, when city officials in Pittsfield, Mass., banned playing the game near the town meeting house. Years later, a group of expertsŽ decided that the game was invented by Abner Double-day „ a decision that is now called a myth. Organized baseball started in the United States in 1857, with the formation of the National Association of Base Ball Players „ 16 teams from New York „ but the first profes-sional teams were listed in 1869. Any baseball memorabilia from the 19th century is rare. Last month a poster for a championship game in Boston between the Philadelphia Keystones and the Boston Unions in 1884 was auctioned by Bonhams in New York. The poster shows a batter and catcher in proper uniforms as they played on a site that is now Copley Square in downtown Boston. It sold for $15,000. Q: I own a Victorian gentlemans dresser thats about 70 inches high and 42 inches wide. It has a tall dress-ing mirror on one side and a smaller shaving mirror on the other side. The dressing mirror pulls out about 9 inches on an extension mount and rotates about 70 degrees in either direction. Peerless Adjustable Mir-rorŽ is stenciled on the back, where theres also a label with six 1890 pat-ent numbers. One of the brackets is embossed Patd Jan. 14, 1890.Ž Can you give me any information about this piece? A: A dresser like yours was pictured in an ad in an 1891 newspaper. It didnt have the shaving mirror, and was advertised as a ladys dresser.Ž The ad claimed that the Peerless Adjust-able Mirror was the only adjustable mirror made, and it could be adjusted to 16 different positions. A Jan. 14, 1890, patent was one of several pat-ents granted for adjustable mirror supports in 1890. It was granted to David Heald and Charles H. French for new and useful improvements in mirror supporting and adjusting devices.Ž The tall dresser with the unusual mirrors has very little storage space. The 21st-century buyer wants drawers. Because of its limited usefulness, your dresser is not worth more than $400. Q: I have a Lalique Champs ElyseesŽ bowl shaped like two oak leaves. The leaves are frosted, and the base and con-necting part are clear. The bowl is 7 1/2 inches high and 18 inches wide, and weighs 21 pounds. How much is it worth? A: Rene Lalique (1860-1945) began making Art Nouveau glass in Paris in the 1890s. Lalique glass still is being made. Pieces made by Rene were marked with the signa-ture R. Lalique.Ž Those made from 1945 until 1977 are marked Lalique France.Ž Newer piec-es include the letter RŽ in a circle. Your bowl is worth about $1,000 to $2,000. The pattern still is being made. Q: I have a complete 65-piece set of dinnerware that includes place settings for eight and several serving piec-es. The dishes have a wheat pattern in the center and a wide yellow border with gold trim. Theyre marked Cen-tury Service Corporation, Alli-ance, OhioŽ around a triangle. The words Semi vitreous din-nerwareŽ are written inside the triangle. Underneath the mark are the words Autumn Gold.Ž Many people tell me the set of dishes I have is worth money. What do you think? A: Autumn GoldŽ is the name of your dinnerwares pattern. The dishes were made by Homer Laughlin China Co. and distributed by Century Service Corp., one of several companies owned by Cunning-ham and Pickett of Alliance, Ohio. Cunningham and Pickett was founded in 1935. It distrib-uted china, glassware, silver-ware and other items made by other companies. Homer Laughlin made dinnerware for Cunningham and Pickett from 1938 until 1969. You often can find dishes in your pattern for sale online. A five-piece place setting of Autumn Gold sells for about $30, a vegetable bowl for about $20. Q: I have a teapot that reads Made in Occupied JapanŽ on the bottom. Other marks on the bottom look like the letter GŽ surrounded by the let-ters CŽ and U.Ž I have been unable to find any information about the teapot or its marks. I would like to know who made the teapot and what its worth. A: The mark on your teapot stands for UCAGCO.Ž It was used by the United China & Glass Co., an importer located in New York and New Orleans. The company was founded by Abe Mayer in 1850 and origi-nally was called Abe Mayer & Co. The UCAGCOŽ mark was first used in the 1930s. UCAG-CO was the first company allowed to import goods from Japan after the end of World War II. Items marked Made in Occupied JapanŽ were made between 1947 and 1952. The company was later sold to Sam-mons Enterprises. Your teapot is worth $20 to $30. Tip: Rhinestone jewelry can be gently cleaned. Use a make-up brush or a cotton swab to remove dust from any c revices. Be careful not to loosen the stones. Spray some glass cleaner or denatured alcohol on a soft cloth, not on the jew-elry. Rub gently. Do not rinse. Water damages the backing on rhinestones. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA very special lunch dateDuring a recent trip to New York, my friend Julia made a bold suggestion. Lets have lunch at the Four Seasons,Ž she said. A mutual friend had hinted that the hotels restaurant might soon be closing, and the iconic institution would vanish like CatsŽ on Broadway and affordable rent. We should go,Ž Julia said, before it disappears.Ž Never mind that were both youngish writers early in our careers, that Julias parents help with her rent and we both make a living from the freelance hustle. Forget that the people who normally lunch at the Four Seasons can expense their $50 entrees. Come on,Ž she coaxed. We can wear our power suits.Ž As it turns out, neither of us owns a power suit. But we did each have one good dress, bought for readings and other writerly events. Mine came from Bloomingdales, and Id saved up gift cards from three Christmases and birth-days to purchase it. I wore my hair up and my one set of good jewelry. Julia, who is an art writer and has a stylish, eclectic taste, looked very much like a hot new author. People probably think Im your agent,Ž I said, laughing, as she walked in. After we were seated, I took a moment to survey the dining room and eye the sea of older men in suits. There were six women in the restaurant: two at the table across from us, clearly there from out of town to make a business pitch; one young woman at a table of men at the back of the room, dressed in a conservative gray suit and pearls, who didnt speak for the entire meal; and an older woman in a sleeveless fuchsia top who looked very much as if she had just taken the train in from Connecticut din-ing with a man who seemed to be her husband. And Julia and I, of course, in our fresh dresses and careful makeup, looking, surprisingly, as if we belonged. We ordered and made small talk. Soon the waiter set down two bowls of asparagus soup, and as we began eat-ing I casually remarked to my friend, I would date any one of these men.Ž She looked around, eyebrows raised. These guys?Ž Sure,Ž I said. That way Id have someone to take me to lunch at the Four Seasons.Ž Julia just laughed and shook her head. Our entrees came „ crab cakes for her, stuffed rabbit for me „ and though we passed on dessert, afterward we ordered cups of tea that cost the same as lunch would have elsewhere. When the bill arrived, neither of us flinched. It was exactly as we had expected: astronomical. But we were prepared. Were careful with our money, and neither of us is a big spend-er. I dont treat myself often. Hardly ever, in fact. As I slipped the money out of my wallet to cover my half of the bill, I flushed a little with pride. And then I had a sudden, stunning r ealization. I didnt need any of those suited men to buy me lunch. I could take myself out.

Q West Palm Beach Antique & Flea Market „ The market, which offers a little of everything, is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays on Narcissus Avenue, north of Banyan Boulevard in West Palm Beach; 561-670-7473. Q A Collectors Delight „ Thats the title of Auctions Neapolitans next event, set for noon May 21. The company has not posted a catalog online but you may be able to view lots at the gallery space, 1100 First Ave. S., Naples; 239-262-7333 or auctionsneapolitan.com. Q Arcadia Antique Fair „ More than 100 dealers set up along Oak Street in Arcadia starting at 8 a.m. the fourth Saturday of each month. Next fair is May 24.

Info: 863-993-5105 or arcadiaflantiques.com. Q „ Send your event information to Scott Simmons at ssimmons@ floridaweekly.com. scott SIMMONS Art and Antiques Across Florida CONTRACT BRIDGEUncanny Approach BY STEVE BECKERThere are plays in bridge that on the surface seem to make no sense, but that are nevertheless entirely logi-cal when analyzed more closely. For example, consider this deal taken from Test Your FinessingŽ by Scottish expert Hugh Kelsey. Assume youre in three notrump and West leads a low heart. You win Easts jack with the king, and the question is how to give yourself the best chance for the contract. Of course, you see only the North-South hands while you try to figure this out. You have seven sure tricks, and it is obvious that the best source for the two additional tricks you need lies in diamonds. It might therefore seem auto-matic to lead the jack of diamonds at trick two, planning to follow low from dummy and hoping to find West with the queen. If West has the queen (a 50-50 chance), youre certain to make the contract. But alas, this method of play fails when East wins the jack with the queen and returns a heart. Eventually, you lose three heart tricks and two diamonds and so finish down one. Mr. Kelsey points out that theres a much better approach that is far more likely to succeed: cross to the king of clubs at trick two and lead the three of diamonds toward your hand at trick three! If East has the Q-x or Q -x-x of diamonds, he is virtually certain to fol-low low, and if he does, youre sure to get home safely. Furthermore, even if West has the queen of diamonds, you are also in great shape. He wins with the queen but can-not make an effective return. Whatever he does next, you make three notrump. To tackle diamonds by leading low from dummys K-10 -x-x toward y our J-98-x certainly goes against the grain, but in this deal it is surely your best bet. Q COURTESY PHOTO This pair of silver ewers made between 1852 and 1861 had been owned by Anna Hall Roo-sevelt. They’re being offered by A.B. Levy’s of Palm Beach. To make an offer, visit ablevys.com.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 “TRYST”From page 1In Tryst,Ž Mr. Ballard plays the conman George Love (one of Smiths aliases was Oliver George Love „ get it?), who woos, weds and beds women before stealing their money; Ms. Brownell plays Adelaide Pinchin, his next intend-ed victim. Adelaide is a spinster and a seamstress who has inherited money from an aunt. She is frumpy „ or is she?I think what she looks like and what she believes she looks like are two dif-ferent things,Ž said Ms. Brownell. Who-ever is playing her, the important thing is not that she look as she believes.Ž Its that whole notion of body image, circa 1910. She believes she is much larger, or is undesirable physically and that is a huge failing and that is why she is ugly, or she believes she is ugly,Ž Ms. Brownell said. That sense of her perspective of what she looks like is more important than the absolute reality, and that helps, I think, lend itself to the problem,Ž Mr. Lewis said. It was an age of long skirts and corsets. Adelaide would have belonged to the working class, much like the shop girls in Masterpiece Theatres Mr. SelfridgeŽ or the maids in Downton Abbey.Ž They talk about what is the feminine expectation of beauty in this period and its very unattainable, just like now,Ž Ms. Brownell said. She says, an 18-inch waist, without corseting, is what its meant to be,Ž said Mr. Lewis. It was a tough standard, even in its day. Gibson Girls,Ž said Mr. Ballard, citing the fashionable wasp-waisted char-acters created around the turn of the last century by illustrator Charles Dana Gibson. And the costumes do inform the play and the performances „ at least as far as grounding the characters in a time and place. What is courtship? What is the appropriate interaction between men and women? Its always very interest-ing to do period work in which youre not only bound by what youre wearing but the strictures of society,Ž said Ms. Brownell. Those hats and gloves and walking sticks of the day were the accoutre-ments of an expected behavior in soci-ety. Were already working in full costume and all the different pieces and many more layers than the present day. Its great. It puts you in that place immediately,Ž said Mr. Ballard. You get that stiff collar and you hold yourself differently than you do in shorts and flip-flops.Ž The undergarments of the day also set a certain tone for women. Said Ms. Brownell: Especially with corseting and Ive worn corsets enough times nowƒŽ To hate them,Ž interjected Mr. Lewis.No, they do a very specific thing that you cannot do on your own,Ž Ms. Brownell said. Those metal stays are rigid.That level of physical uncomfortability, youre either going to learn to work with it in rehearsal or live with it later,Ž said Ms. Brownell, who admitted to lying down during rehearsal breaks because it was easier to breathe that way in a corset. TrystŽ was originally produced in London in 1997, when it was called The Mysterious Mr. Love.Ž A revised version of the play, with the current title, pre-miered off-Broadway at the Promenade Theatre in 2006. These two lost souls sort of stumble into each others world,Ž said Mr. Lewis. At best, George is a scoundrel.George is a confidence man who preys on women who have no confi-dence themselves,Ž said Mr. Ballard. But unlike the tales that inspired Tryst,Ž there is hope in this story. I stop being the victim and maybe the journey becomes more about my hoping to transform him,Ž said Ms. Brownell. Its a great turn-around for this character who has so little self-confidence.Ž Q >>What: “Tryst” >>When: May 16-June 8 >>Where: Palm Beach Dramaworks’ Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach>>Cost: $60 for all performances.

Ignore any attempts to get you to ease up on your efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family continues to be the dominant factor, but career matters also take on new impor-tance. You might even be able to combine elements of the two in some surprising, productive way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A realistic view of a workplace or personal situ-ation helps you deal with it more construc-tively once you know where the truth lies. Reserve the weekend for someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you Leos or Leonas might be intrigued by the sunnyŽ prospects touted for a potential investment, be careful that you dont allow the glare to blind you to its essential details. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friends problem brings out the Virgos nurturing nature in full force. However, dont go it alone. Allow others to pitch in and help share the responsibilities youve assumed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision might need to be put off until a colleagues personal mat-ter is resolved. Use this time to work on another business matter that youve been anxious to get to. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Relationships (personal or professional) might appear to be stalled because of details that keep cropping up and that need tending to. Be patient. A path begins to clear soon. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A promotion could cause resentment among envious col-leagues. But others recognize how hard you worked to earn it, and will be there to support you if you need them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Handling a delicate personal matter needs both your wisdom and your warmth. Expect some setbacks, but stay with it. The outcome will more than justify your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resist the temptation to cut corners just because time is short. Best to move ahead step by step so you dont overlook anything that might later create time-wasting complications. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use the good will you recently earned with that well-received project to pitch your ideas for a new project. Expect some tough competition, though, from an unlikely source. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An unexpected development could change the Arians perspective on a potential investment. Keep an open mind. Ignore the double talk and act only on the facts.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 15-21, 2014 B11 +++ Is it worth $10? YesNeighborsŽ has a one-note premise that could tire quickly: Loving couple and new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) move into their dream home. A short time later a college fraternity moves in next door, so between the baby and loud partying, Mac and Kelly cant get a moment of quiet. Weve seen the game of dueling neighbors before, and it often gets old fast. Worse, the concept is only marginally funny to begin with, which means its of utmost importance for the script, comedy bits and timing to be spot on. Thankfully, NeighborsŽ succeeds. This is partially due to the frequent attempts at shock value, often of questionable taste. For example, we meet Mac and Kelly in the first scene as they have sex in front of baby Stella (Elise and Zoey Vargas). Shes too young to realize whats happening „ they hope. Later they consider tak-ing Stella to a club, and the next day Mac takes a break from work to smoke a joint with his buddy Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz). Respon-sible parents they are not. The intention, of course, is to show that the young-ish Mac and Kelly arent quite ready to leave their wild and free party days behind. Accordingly, they have a great time when Delta Psi brothers Teddy (Zac Efron, looking hunky sans shirt) and Pete (Dave Franco) invite them to the housewarming party. For Mac and Kelly its a one-time thing in an effort to not be old and lame; for the frat, crazy par-tying is a nightly occurrence. Eventu-ally, Mac and Kelly try to anonymously call the police to quiet the noise, which blows up in their faces and starts a turf war. This leads to a middle section in which each side plots against the other, and as the situation escalates, so does the danger. Within these safety-disre-garding pranks lie a number of imagi-native hilarities, including a dildo sale and a plethora of juvenile boy humor. Theres also nudity, a breast milk disas-ter and the history of toga parties, beer pong and the boot and rally.Ž Note: If you dont know what at least two of those things are, this movie is not for you. Director Nicholas Stoller and writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan OBrien make it a point to reveal why the frat had to move next door, why other neigh-bors dont complain, why Mac and Kelly cant sell the house and why they cant go back to the police. This is impor-tant because it means the filmmakers are honest with the viewers and arent straining credulity by disregarding obvi-ous questions. Youd be surprised how many movies take this liberty, and suffer from it. NeighborsŽ is a solid comedy for those wanting a good laugh. It does not belong in the annals of great col-lege frat movies (its certainly no Ani-mal HouseŽ), but the party scenes are appropriately upbeat, reckless and wild. This is a film that knows how to be outrageous, and we the viewers reap the benefits. Q p y dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Lisa Kudrow has an extended cameo as the university dean. LATEST FILMSNeighbors FILM CAPSULES The Amazing Spider-Man 2 +++ (Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx) Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Mr. Gar-field) loves Gwen Stacy (Ms. Stone) and protects the city from supercharged vil-lain Electro (Jamie Foxx). The action is fun, but the real highlight is the charming chemistry between Mr. Garfield and Ms. Stone. Rated PG-13. Fading Gigolo ++ (John Turturro, Woody Allen, Sofia Vergara) When his older friend (Mr. Allen) says he knows two women (Ms. Vergara and Sharon Stone) willing to pay for a threesome, Floravante (Mr. Turtur-ro) takes the job. It strains for laughs and the dramatic elements feel half-baked. Mr. Turturro also wrote and directed; no one should write jokes for Mr. Allen other than Mr. Allen. Rated R. The Railway Man ++ (Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Hiroyuki Sanada) In 1980 a British man (Mr. Firth) is given the chance to confront the Japa-nese soldier (Mr. Sanada) who tortured him at a POW camp during World War II. The jumping timeline between past and present doesnt 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. The ending is given away in the beginning, and the sec-ond half is a bit too much sci-fi fantasy for its own good. Still, it gives you plenty to think about. Rated PG-13.

The Dish: Island Chicken Wings The Place: LongBoards, 519 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 833-4660 The Price: $5 (happy hour) The Details: The next time we visit LongBoards for happy hour, were wing-ing it. Literally. You could make a meal of the $5 happy hour snacks, served daily between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at this popular down-town West Palm Beach hangout. The bacon scallion mac and cheese was rich and flavorful, with just the right amount of bacon „ its easy to go overboard, and the chefs at LongBoards didnt. The steamed littleneck clams also were tasty, and we requested extra bread for sopping the juices. And the wings?They were tender and tasty, with a light, crispy breading that would have left us wanting more, had we not stuffed ourselves on the macaroni. They were tossed in a slightly sweet Polynesian sauce and pineapples, which lent a trop-ical touch, and topped with bits of scal-lion. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Hes a star in his home country of Israel, where hes had 12 restaurants, a TV cooking show and a cookbook to his name, but Ari Sekerel is just known as a solid restaurateur in Palm Beach County. Owner of Prosecco Caf in Palm Beach Gardens, and Bocas Saquella Caf, Abra-ham Sekerel, or Avi as he prefers, has a wealth of knowledge behind him. He graduated from the University of Central Florida with a business degree, then got into hospitality management. As with everything he does, he immersed himself in it. Knowing that the best hospitality schools are in Swit-zerland, he spent two years studying in a private school there. I want to learn everything from the ground up,Ž he said. I am very hands-on.Ž After Europe, he returned to Florida. In Miami, he started with a restaurant in the Radisson Hotel. Within 1 years, I owned a Mexican restaurant. El Taco Rico. It was a taco shack, and I invested with a friend.Ž Then Hurricane Andrew arrived and took the roof off. That ended that. He switched to barbecue, opening the Carolina Caf. It was an amazing restaurant. We were doing four full pigs a day,Ž he said. This is when he began to learn how the kitchen worked from the bottom up. I like to get to the nuts and bolts of things. I wanted to be involved in the quality of our food every step, so I took a class in butchery to learn it. Its not just cost-saving but educational.Ž Knowledge is power, he said, even in a kitchen where there are a variety of ways to ensure best cuts, best ways to use leftover parts „ and to teach others. Later on, hed open a gelato shop, so he studied gelato making. Going into caf ownership, he needed to know about coffee, so he explored coffee farms and took a course in cof-fee bean roasting. For the pastries in his caf, he took a course in pastry making. It was the same with chocolates; though hes no master chocolatier, he can make good chocolates „ from scratch. Its about quality „ knowing how to make the foods or butcher or whatever, it gives you control over the quality and teach your staff. We have a baker come in to learn pastries. I can teach the right way to make things „ the right temperature of the scalded milk so as not to burn it.Ž After his success in Miami, he took a break and returned home. I moved to Israel and opened 12 restaurants within 10 years there. I had my own TV cook-ing show, and wrote a cookbook to go with it. But I got bored, and wanted to come back to the U.S. and explore „ see what was happening here. My wife and I want-ed to challenge ourselves more.Ž He landed in Palm Beach County, and looked for a good caf like those in Israel on every corner. There was nowhere to get a good quality cappuccino or espres-so with a pastry and just sit and relax. I didnt come here with the intent to open Saquello, but I saw that need.Ž The bakery-caf he began in Bocas Royal Palm Place was a huge success. We had good quality pastries, and cof-fee. They wanted sandwiches and salads, so we finally added those and offered breakfast and lunch. Then they wanted dinner. We added a dinner night. The more we offered, the more they demanded more. Then we just kept on adding and opening more and more (frequently). Now its open for breakfast, lunch and dinner,Ž he said. Prosecco, open for three years at PGA Commons, was the outcome of Saquello „ with a twist. Mr. Sekerel said, I wanted to offer everyone healthy choices „ the diners want to eat healthy and keep fit. We have what we call the no-fry zones. There are no fryers in my restaurant. Weve added healthy salads „ I like a salad for breakfast. It took a while for customers here to get used to that on the plate „ we would have plates come back with salads still on them, but they came around. Now, people demand them. We cant take them off the breakfast menu.Ž Theyre served with a light lime-raspberry vinaigrette, made in-house. Healthy choices pepper the Prosecco menu: sweet potatoes, quinoa, kale, among others. We like one-page menus. Were not putting everything on the menu that will cover everything to everybody. Our menus are not overloaded „ we play in the kitchen with the daily specials. People think specials are leftovers, but I love them „ its when you can do some-thing different with whatever is fresh at that moment,Ž he said. He works with local farmers and ranchers who offer foods with no preser-vatives, hormones or antibiotics. The customers care where their food is from and whats in it now.Ž A new menu for Prosecco is in the works, expected this month. Were making it to include the big sellers as specials. My wife and I work closely with the chef „ discuss the new items were going to use. If there is an item out there thats big and trendy, we like to use it. Were turning to beets and a new cheese, the buricotta „ its a burrata, mozzarella shell, with ricotta inside.Ž While he uses few recipes, he is inspired by looking at other menus and watching certain TV shows that keep him up to date in the food trends. He finds that being from Florida brings the best culinary trends to his cuisine. We have Caribbean, Mediterranean and Southern influences.Ž This allows him to draw from several flavor profiles. Mediterranean is still at the heart of his foods. Hes decided to expand on that with a fast-casual concept called Shish opening soon in two locations around the county. Well have Mediterranean/Mideast flavors that at the same time are fitting in with American tastes. It will have fresh-made pita. The pita eaten today is a very thin pita, not really representative of the Mediterranean style. It will be thicker, and chewy,Ž he said. Everybody is trying to put hummus and falafel on the menus, suddenly. Were bringing a new twist on those reci-pes. Well use things like kale and quinoa rather than bulgar and herbs. There will be schwarma, tabouli and all fresh. We did a trial on the foods „ theyre amaz-ing. Were working the healthy aspect into the menu.Ž Mr. Sekerel is looking forward to the new concept. Success starts with experience. You have to give great value with the money, and give good service and interesting food. Then people think theyre getting their moneys worth. The biggest word is trust. If you can create trust „ that this is the best thing they have put in their mouths „ then you have repeat customers.

Each year, shoulder problems account for approximately 1.5 million visits to orthopedic surgeons. The shoulder joint is the third most frequently replaced joint after the hip and knee. Osteo-arthritis (degenera-tive arthritis) results from wear and tearŽ to the joint cartilage and develops after years of constant motion and pressure on the joints. As the cartilage continues to wear, the joint becomes inflamed and can result in unbear-able pain and decreased range of motion. Total shoulder replacement is an effective treatment for patients when nonsurgical options no longer provide relief. The Anderson Family Orthopedic & Spine Center of Excellence at Jupiter Medical Center is proud to offer patients total shoulder replacement with a rota-tor cuff sparing technique. SEE SHOULDER, C6 X

Do you ever forget to check your side and rear mirrors to make sure no one is in your blind spot before making a turn? What about accidentally advancing too far into the crosswalk while stopped at a red light? Ive per-sonally been guilty of all these things a number of times, and Im the wife of a cyclist (and the mom of another). And with every mistake, my heart drops into the pit of my stomach as I think about what might have hap-pened.But theres another dark side to motor vehi-cle and cyclist encounters that has nothing to do with being occa-sionally careless. Road rage and a deliberate intent to harass and harm people on bicycles is a growing problem. Some motor-ists actually go out of their way to honk, yell and ride menacingly close to cyclists often within inches of their wheels even though Florida law clear-ly states, The driver of a vehicle overtaking a bicycle or other nonmo-torized vehicle must pass the bicycle or other nonmotorized vehicle at a safe distance of not less than 3 feet between the vehicle and the bicycle or other nonmotorized vehicle.Ž Matt and Julie Goforth of On Your Mark Performance Center have unfor-tunately seen and personally experi-enced this type of dangerous behavior at the hands of motorists for years. In fact, South Florida seems to be a par-ticularly risky place for cyclists as well pedestrians. The most stressful situation for me is when a car honks, right as they are passing. Its everything I can do to keep the bike upright,Ž said Julie Goforth. No one likes to talk about it, but almost every cyclist who rides here has a story. What motorists fail to realize is that when an unprotected cyclist or pedestrian is put up against a person sealed in a 4,000-pound steel box, the driver always wins. And the husband, wife, son or daughter lying on the side of the road is headed to the hospital for weeks of painful recovery, or they are dead. The statistics regarding cyclists at risk are frightening. According to the AAA (American Automobile Asso-ciation) and the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic and Safety Adminis-tration), every day an average of 140 bicyclists are injured or killed in traf-fic accidents. Male cyclists between the ages 24-64 make up the majority of all cycling fatalities while boys 10-14 years of age have the highest number of cycling injuries and child fatalities. If you witness a cyclist or pedestrian being harassed by a motorist, please call 911 immediately and report the incident with as much information as possible. It could be a matter of life and death for that individual as well as others if the motorist is not brought to justice. Were all sharing the roadways, therefore we need to respect one another,Ž said Matt Goforth. May is National Bike Month. The League of American Cyclists has done an excellent job raising awareness about this issue through their Share the RoadŽ campaign in cooperation with AAA and others.

Whether your bulging blue veins make you self-conscious or cause you pain, seeking treatment for their removal is not a matter of van-ity, its a step in the right direction for good venous health. In fact, veins that protrude and rope underneath your skin are veins that are no longer function-ing properly. The one-way valves that keep blood moving toward the heart no longer work, allowing the blood to leak down and pool in your legs. This result is varicose veins and the unpleasant symptoms of fatigue, swelling, throb-bing, heaviness and aching legs. The board-certified physicians at Palm Beach Cardiovascular Vein Center are dedicated to diagnosing the cause and treating venous insufficiency effectively. Using the latest, minimally inva-sive techniques Richard S. Faro, MD, FACS and Joseph Motta, MD, FACS have perfected the relatively pain-free, highly effective techniques that require little or no recovery time. These lat-est treatments include VNUS Radio-frequency Closure, EVLT EndoVenous Laser Treatment, Sclerotherapy and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. The Vein Center recently added VeinWave a new FDA-cleared treatment for spider veins and telangiectasia of the face, ankles, knees and more. An alternative to laser and light-based treatments, VeinWave offers unprecedented advantages. No side effects, no bruising, no scarring, no hiding from the sun.

Most Skin Cancers Can Be Cured How can you tell how much exercise is enough exercise? M ost of us would agree that we want to be as healthy as we can. Thanks to a steady barrage of commentary by talking heads on tele-vision and articles by "experts" in weekend editions of newspapers and magazines, most of us are aware that enjoying good health has a lot to do with specific habits of nutrition and exercise.The big challenge is to find enough time in the day to do all the things required to fulfill these habits. Part of this chal-lenge is actually being willing to find the time to get all these things done in addition to everything else we have to do. Sometimes, on certain days, it may not be possible to find the time required. But good health is obtained over months and years and what's needed is a long-term plan to achieve goals of healthy nutrition and regular, vigorous exercise. A critical starting point is knowing your basic needs „ that is, knowing the minimum require-ments for good health.Many studies have examined these minimum requirements, concluding that 30 minutes of vigorous exercise, five days per week, is sufficient to obtain multiple health benefits. For example, both the American Heart Association and the American College of Sports Medicine recommend 30 minutes of exercise, five days a week. People who engage in such a consistent exercise program find that they're not only fitter and trimmer, but they are sleeping better, have increased concentration during the day, and have an improved outlook on life. Impor-tantly, those who exercise regularly have a significantly decreased risk of diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, obe-sity and cardiovascular disease. The long-term impact of exercise on our health is profound. But there's a disconnect. Everybody knows that exercise is important. But almost three-quarters of adults do not get enough physical activity to meet public health recom-mendations. The immediate result is that almost two-thirds of American adults are overweight and almost one-third are obese. Worldwide, more than 1.4 billion adults are overweight. The missing link is personal motivation and the key action step is to get started. Exercise has a way of carrying you along. Once you begin and suc-cessfully fight the battle of inertia and lethargy to make it through a couple of weeks of consistent, vigorous exercise, you'll find that you want to do it again the next day. The struggle to find time seems to fade into the background as you become a person who exercises. You'll likely discover that your life is being transformed in numerous, won-derful ways. Thirty minutes of exercise, five days a week, is the key. You can do more, of course, but meeting the minimum requirement is the main goal. The choice of exercise is up to you. There are no firm guidelines regard-ing what kinds of activities to do. For many, a good approach is to mix and match, alternating cardiovascular days with strength training days. Car-diovascular exercise includes walk-ing, running, swimming, cycling, and cross-country skiing. Similarly, strength training can be done in a variety of ways. Overall, there's no right formula to use in developing your personal exer-cise program „ what works for you, works for you. What there is to focus on, is getting it done „ 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

The results are incredible, I couldn’t be more thrilled!” “I used to make the comment that I probably had the worst teeth in the world. Now I can eat, smile, and I have A LOT of confidence.” Before BeforeAfter After Are you suffering from missing teeth, damaged teeth, failing dental work, or ill-fitting dentures? Teeth Next Day is a solution designed to give you a brand new smile that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth in just ONE DAY. D ental implant restorations are replacement teeth comprised of several components: an implant post made of biocompatible titanium that is anchored to the jawbone, an implant abutment that attaches to the implant and protrudes from the gum line, and a custom-made restoration (often a crown or bridge) that is fitted onto the abut-ment for a natural appearance. Dental implants can be used to replace a single failing or missing tooth as well as mul-tiple failing or missing teeth. In many cases, Dr. Jay Ajmo can replace all of a patients teeth with dental implants.Who is a candidate for dental implants?Most adults at any age who want to replace missing teeth are candidates. They are used to permanently replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth and have become the optimum choice for many patients requiring tooth replacement and dental restoration. Implants also serve as secure attachments for removable dental prostheses such as full dentures or partial plates.What does a complete dental implant procedure involve?The process in our office has become simplified because we use state-of-the art techniques to surgically place and complete-ly restore your implants, all in our specially designed cosmetic and implant facility in Palm Beach Gardens. Well schedule your implant surgery in our on-site surgi-cal suite, where youll be kept comfortable and relaxed with a sedative, if necessary. Dr. Ajmo will place small, biocompatible implant posts precise-ly where your teeth are missing in your jaws. The same day, in many cases, he will attach abutments and temporary crowns to the implants. Your mouth will heal over the next few weeks and the implants will fuse to your jawbone over several months (a process called osseointegration). After the implants are securely fused to your jawbone, Dr. Ajmo will custom design permanent res-torations that will look, feel and function like your real teeth. Your personal treatment plan might include a single tooth replacement with a cosmetic porcelain crown, the replacement of multiple teeth with permanent bridge-work or a full set of replacement teeth. Dr. Ajmo also offers a variety of implant-retained denture options that firmly and securely support removable appliances without the use of messy glues or denture adhesives. To ensure your comfort during implant procedures, we offer a variety of relaxing sedation techniques, including mild oral and IV sedation. Since Dr. Ajmo is board certi-fied in IV sedation and is highly skilled in all of these comprehensive implant services, you can be certain youre getting the most comfortable care possible while feeling con-fident that youre receiving the absolute best in modern dentistry.

The closest treatment available is in Miami „ the days sail-ing time will be too late. This is a real life event that saved her life at the speed of flight. This case helped a retired lady. After several days cruising she had mistakenly taken her husbands prescrip-tion medication and was suffering from septic shock. She required treat-ment within hours or she would suf-fer permanent liver and kidney dam-age. A call from the ships doctor put Air Trek on alert. We quickly developed a patient transport plan that included the U.S. Coast Guard sta-tioned in the Turks and Caicos Islands plus our Cessna Citation jet, staffed with two Captains (myself included), a critical care flight nurse and a flight paramedic. The cruise ship had just set sail from Labadee, Haiti, for the 36-hour cruise to Port of Miami. Consultation between the ships doctor and Jackson Memorial Hospital determined the days sail time would be too late and she needed an air ambulance ASAP. While flying our jet from Florida to Providenciales International Airport on North Caicos Island, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter was dispatched from Grand Turk to the ship at sea. Landing on a cruise ship at sea in the middle of the night to save a life makes us all thankful for the highly trained and pro-fessional men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard. After landing and clearing customs we quickly refueled and prepared for a time sensitive flight to Miami. We heard the helicopter approaching well before seeing her and the noise and rotor wash reverberated as the Coast Guard pilot expertly touched down just a few yards from our waiting jet. Both medical teams quickly transferred the patient from helicopter to jet, and within minutes our jet was taxiing for departure to the life-saving care wait-ing in Miami. Thanks to advance arrangements made by Air Treks flight coordinators, we arrived at MIA where customs agents and a ground ambulance were waiting, ready to expedite clearance and transport to Jackson Memorial Hospital where a highly skilled medi-cal team was ready to save another life. As coincidences happen, this patient lived in Fort Myers just 30 miles dis-tance to Air Treks base of operations in Punta Gorda. It was a welcome surprise to have this nice lady stop in to visit; it is not often I get hugs from patients saved from a ship at sea and flown for care in Miami. Thirty six years and thousands of air ambulance flights have allowed Air Trek to participate in saving many lives at the speed of flight! Behind every memorable moment such as these, is a company and sys-tems set in place to make sure that patient transports worldwide are carried out as planned. Air Treks foun-dation consists of a 36-year-old, family business whose formula for success has remained the same for years: Focus on being safety-centered while provid-ing the ultimate in patient care. Air Trek owns and operates seven aircraft including pressurized twin engine aircraft, Citation jets, and a Westwind II jet. Each aircraft is fully equipped and staffed to function as a flying critical care unit allowing us to provide the best care for our patients. Air Trek differs from other Air Ambu-lance services in that we own the aircraft, which enables us to have direct operational control of all aspects of the patients transport. The patients family, friends, and pets may also travel aboard the aircraft at no additional charge, pending the availability of seats. Air Treks Flight Coordinators can explain the different seating capabilities for each individual aircraft then design a personalized and specific plan to meet the transport needs for the patient and their family members. Knowing we help to save lives at the speed of flight is often the most rewarding part of our business. „ Dana Carr is an airline transport pilot and serves as director of operations for Air Trek Inc., which is family owned and operated since 1978, and specializes in helping people travel throughout the world.

This leading-edge procedure allows orthopedic surgeons to use modified instruments and techniques to leave the rotator cuff intact and utilize a small win-dow between the rotator cuff tendons. This eliminates the need for a sling beyond a few days post-operatively, and can significantly shorten the necessary time for rehab and decrease the risk of nonhealing tendons or dysfunction. In conventional shoulder replacements, the subscapularis tendon (one of the four rotator cuff tendons) is temporarily released from the humerus to gain access to the shoulder joint. Once the procedure is complete, the subscapularis is reattached through a variety of techniques, and gradu-ated rehabilitation begins. The main goal of the early post-operative phase is to protect the subscapularis to allow for healing. If adequate healing is not achieved, conse-quences may include reduced functionality, limited range of motion, pain, scar-tissue buildup and stiff shoulder.Ž Total shoulder replacement through a rotator cuff spar-ing technique eliminates the risk of these consequences occurring. Initial treatment for shoulder conditions begins with a comprehensive evaluation. To find out if you are a candidate for total shoulder replacement with a rotator cuff sparing technique, consult with your orthopedic physician to determine the best option for you.

The researchers demon-strated that the human immune system can mount a response against mutant proteins expressed by cancers that arise in epithelial cells which can line the internal and exter-nal surfaces (such as the skin) of the body. These cells give rise to many types of com-mon cancers, such as those that develop in the digestive tract, lung, pancreas, bladder and other areas of the body. The research provides evidence that this immune response can be harnessed for therapeutic benefit in patients, according to the scientists. The study appeared May 9, in the journal Science.Ž Our study deals with the central problem in human cancer immunotherapy, which is how to effectively attack common epithelial cancers,Ž said Steven A. Rosen-berg, M.D., chief of the Surgery Branch in NCIs Center for Cancer Research. The method we have developed provides a blue-print for using immunotherapy to specifi-cally attack sporadic or driver mutations, unique to a patients individual cancer.ŽAll malignant tumors harbor genetic alterations, some of which may lead to the production of mutant proteins that are capable of triggering an antitumor immune response. Research led by Dr. Rosenberg and his colleagues had shown that human melanoma tumors often contain mutation-reactive immune cells called tumor-infil-trating lymphocytes, or TILs. The presence of these cells may help explain the effec-tiveness of adoptive cell therapy (ACT) and other forms of immunotherapy in the treatment of melanoma. In ACT, a patients own TILs are collected, and those with the best antitumor activ-ity are grown in the laboratory to produce large populations that are infused into the patient. However, prior to this work it had not been clear whether the human immune system could mount an effective response against mutant proteins produced by epi-thelial cell cancers. These cells comprise more than 80 percent of all cancers. It was also not known whether such a response could be used to develop personalized immunotherapies for these cancers. In this study, Dr. Rosenberg and his team set out to determine whether TILs from patients with metastatic gastrointestinal cancers could recognize patient-specific mutations. They analyzed TILs from a patient with bile duct cancer that had metastasized to the lung and liver and had not been responsive to standard chemo-therapy. The patient, a 43-year-old woman, was enrolled in an NIH trial. Following transfer of the TILs, the patients metastatic lung and liver tumors stabilized. When the patients disease even-tually progressed, after about 13 months, she was re-treated with ACT in which 95 percent of the transferred cells were muta-tion-reactive T cells, and she experienced tumor regression that was ongoing as of the last follow up (six months after the sec-ond T-cell infusion). These results provide evidence that a T-cell response against a mutant protein can be harnessed to medi-ate regression of a metastatic epithelial cell cancer. Given that a major hurdle for the success of immunotherapies for gastrointesti-nal and other cancers is the apparent low frequency of tumor-reactive T cells, the strategies reported here could be used to generate a T-cell adoptive cell therapy for patients with common cancers,Ž said Dr. Rosenberg.

Q Combined therapies show improvement in MS symptomsCombining the estrogen hormone estriol with Copaxone, a drug indicated for the treatment of patients with relaps-ing forms of multiple sclerosis, or MS, may improve symptoms in patients with the disorder, according to preliminary results from a clinical study of 158 patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclero-sis. The findings were presented recently by Rhonda Voskuhl, M.D., from the Uni-versity of California, Los Angeles, at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. The study was funded by the National Institute of Neu-rological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health; and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. While these results are encouraging, the results of this Phase II study should be considered preliminary as a larger study would be needed to know whether benefits outweigh the risks for persons affected by MS. At present, we cannot recommend estrogen as part of standard therapy for MS. We encourage patients to talk with their doctors before making any changes to their treatment plans,Ž said Walter Koroshetz, M.D., deputy director of NINDS. MS is an autoimmune disorder in which immune cells break down myelin, a protective covering that wraps around nerve cells. Loss of myelin results in pain, movement and balance problems as well as changes in cognitive ability. RRMS is the most common form of the disorder. Patients with RRMS experience relapses, or flare-ups, of neurological symptoms, followed by recovery periods during which the symptoms improve.Numerous laboratory studies have suggested that estrogen may have neuro-protective effects and may help decrease inflammation, which occurs in MS. In addition, it has been reported that MS patients experience improvement in symptoms during the phase of preg-nancy when levels of estrogen increase. However, studies looking at the effects of estrogen therapy on womens health have shown mixed results. Estriol, the form of estrogen examined in this study, is only produced in the body during pregnancy. In this two-year study, patients received Copaxone along with 8 mil-ligrams per day of estriol or placebo pills. The primary goal of the trial was to determine if estriol helped decrease the number of relapses experienced by RRMS patients who were also taking Copaxone. Researchers found that at 12 months, estrogen combination therapy was associated with a greater reduction in relapse rates compared to Copaxone and placebo. However, at 24 months, the difference between the treatment groups was not as great as it was at 12 months. The findings presented by Dr. Voskuhl suggest that there may be benefits to supplementing Copaxone ther-apy with estrogen. A longer study, with more patients, would be necessary to definitively validate these provocative, although early, findings,Ž said Dr. Koro-shetz.
