These events mark a time when young people cross a threshold toward their futures, uncer-tain though they may be. We are all stakeholders in their success, regardless of whether we share a blood kinship. Our taxes and income support pub-lic education from the preschool start through the post-secondary finish line offered by publicly funded universi-ties. Assuming young people have the aspiration and the opportunity to attend a post-secondary institution, they and their supporters will need deep pock-ets. The National Center for Education Statistics reports the average annual cost for undergraduate tuition, fees, room, and board was $16,789 at public, four-year institutions (including $5,500 for in-state tuition); and tuition and required fees average $2,647 at public two-year institutions. Private universities are rarely an option for students from families of modest income. The center estimates the average annual, all-inclusive expense for undergraduates is $37,906 at private, nonprofit, four-year institutions, and $23,364 at private, for-profit four-year institutions. If you live from paycheck to paycheck, your best shot at financing college is winning the lottery or subsuming your student in a mountain of debt. Our pub-lic schools and publicly supported uni-versities are historically the infrastruc-ture of choice to support broad-based access to educational opportunity for the vast majority of our countryÂs stu-dents. Those who have alternatives to a public education have always had them, based on their privilege and their race. The exceptional efforts to accommo-date bright students of modest means at private institutions include affirmative action, low cost-student loans, and vari-ous forms of financial assistance. Take these away, and you get an overwhelmingly white student body with upper-income parents functioning as their ATM. Making access affordable and improving the quality of public edu-cation is the only real choice worth mak-ing if we want an educated, informed, and productive citizenry capable of con-tributing to society. Most Americans commonly share a public school background and are grate-ful for the experience; but a powerful defense in support of public education is lacking. Certainly, our lawmakers in Tallahassee have little affection for the schoolhouse of their memories. Instead, they made cynical work of the state budget process, and undercut public education, spending billions else-where, joined by an army of lobbyists on their robberÂs mission to appropriate public dollars for private schools. The coalition of the self-serving with the undeserving reminds me of the teenage weasel, Eddie Haskell, from the old television series, ÂLeave It to Bea-ver.ÂŽ Eddie was always up to no good but always feigning pure motives. Imagine that Eddie, by some miracle of inepti-tude, is the education czar. He trashes with glee his own alma mater, destroy-ing publicly funded schools in order to ÂsaveÂŽ them. Shifting public resources to fund a parallel universe of private schools is not a righteous cause. Those lawmakers who championed the give-away deserve to be flunked like Eddie. Advocates of private school vouchers claim ÂchoiceÂŽ programs, charter schools, and the tax credit scholarship programs to promote corporate gifts to private and mostly faith-based schools, are for a good cause, helping all those underprivileged kids with the big brown eyes who are orphaned in underper-forming schools find an escape route from mediocrity. It is easier to abandon than fix what is wrong in public schools; but if you peel the onion down to its core, it is really a massive Âbait-and-switchÂŽ effort by conservative lawmakers. The intent is to undermine public education, con-tinue shifting the burden of financing public schools from the state to local governments, and increase the misap-propriation of state tax revenues to fund the expansion of private schools at the publicÂs expense. The latest budget approved by our conservative lawmakers increases perstudent funding, but not back to its peak level in 2007. Out of $2.5 billion in new revenue, only 7 percent of that went to K-12 education. Our own success as adults is evidence of the value and worth of public schools. Despite all the things that are wrong, the preponderance of things going right are far more affirming than the tenor of public debate would suggest. My optimism rebounds on hearing the remarks of a young scholar chosen by her class to deliver the commence-ment address at the FAU Honors College graduation. She spoke with eloquence of her own academic experience, including her acknowledgment of and praise for the mentors and instructors who sus-tained her studies throughout her public university experience. The graduating class and the entire audience rose to its feet in response to her remarks, providing a standing ova-tion for the faculty. It made me think we know more than we are saying about the importance of our public schools and universities; and that the time has come to stand up and say it.

We now know that they will be called ageist, too. A report in the New York PostÂs Page Six that Karl Rove told a recent con-ference that Hillary Clinton might be brain-damaged after a 30-day hospital stay during her illness at the end of 2012 caused a volcanic eruption of denuncia-tion aimed at the Republican strategist. Rove was accused, among other things, of dealing the age card from the bottom of the deck. Rove denies saying Âbrain damage,ÂŽ and the Page Six report didnÂt put quote marks around that phrase. He tells me heÂs not sure whether he actually said she was in the hospital 30 days (it was three), but regardless, he meant to refer to the entirety of the 30-day episode when she was dealing with a virus, a fall and a subsequent concussion and blood clot between her brain and skull. If we take RoveÂs interview on Fox News the day after the Page Six item as the best explanation of his view, his basic points are unassailable Â„ the state of ClintonÂs health will play into her decision whether or not to run, she will have to be completely open about the 2012 episode and all of this will be fil-tered through the fact that she will be 69 if elected and 77 if she serves two terms. Even if you take at face value everything weÂve heard about ClintonÂs condi-tion in December 2012, it was frighten-ingly serious. The clot, according to The Washington Post, Âcan cause permanent brain damage, coma or death if not detected and treated in time.ÂŽ News accounts say it was caught early, and Clinton is performing as ably as ever. But politicians have a long his-tory of lying through their teeth about their health Â„ see Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy and Paul Tsongas, for example. So Clinton will have to pro-vide a full accounting of the 2012 inci-dent and her overall health. And as for her age, of course it will be an issue. The problem with being an old candidate in American presidential politics is that people use it against you. U.S. News & World Report had an item in April 2008 titled ÂObama Cam-paign Plans to Hit at McCainÂs Age.ÂŽ The Bill Clinton re-election campaign in 1996 feasted on contrasts between the new and old in its lopsided bout with the septuagenarian Bob Dole. Of course, age is hardly dispositive. Ronald Reagan was the oldest presi-dent at age 70 in 1981 and embodied an invigorating optimism despite his years. But age was an issue for him in 1980 and 1984. Hillary can potentially trump all this with openness about her medi-cal records, and with an energetic and future-oriented campaign, should she run. Her supporters, in the meantime, hope to deflect any questions with cries of ageism and sexism. It will be a nice change of pace to move on from racism as the Democratic rejoinder of choice to other Â-ismsÂŽ neglected during the past eight years. But Rove is right: Hillary will have to deal with these questions. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.William Worthy and Vincent Harding: Thank you and goodbyeThe world lost two remarkable men in May, two African-Americans who helped shape modern history, yet whose names and achievements remain too lit-tle known. William Worthy, a journalist, died at the age of 92. Civil-rights activist Vincent Harding was 82. Each was a wit-ness to some of the most pivotal events of the latter half of the 20th century. They led their lives speaking truth to power, working for a better world. William Worthy became a journalist, working for both CBS News and the Baltimore Afro-American. He reported from the Soviet Union and would go to North Vietnam. As a Nieman Fel-low at Harvard University, he ignored a U.S. ban on traveling to communist China. As a result, the State Department refused to renew WorthyÂs passport. He would later travel to Cuba after the revolution there, where he interviewed Fidel Castro. Upon his return, he was charged with entering the U.S. without a passport. He challenged the charges and was eventually cleared. The fed-eral appeals court opinion stated, ÂIt is inherent in the concept of citizen-ship that the citizen ... has a right to return, again to set foot on its soil.ÂŽ U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy chose not to appeal to the Supreme Court, Worthy said, because Âhe and his brother [President John F. Kennedy] were sick and tired of the case. They had had enough embarrassment over it.ÂŽ He was represented by a young ACLU lawyer named William Kunstler, who later noted that the victory in this case inspired him to continue in his path as a pioneering constitutional attorney. In 1981, Worthy and colleagues went to Iran, after the revolution that deposed the U.S.-backed Shah, and after the U.S. Embassy hostages had been released. He obtained copies of paperback books that contained reproductions of CIA documents that had been shredded as the U.S. Embassy was overrun, but later painstakingly reconstructed. The 11 vol-umes were widely available in Iran, and as far away as Europe Â„ but they were strictly banned in the U.S. Wor-thyÂs copies were confiscated from lug-gage he shipped, but officials missed a volume in his carry-on luggage. After The New York Times refused to run a story on the CIA documents, investiga-tive journalist Scott Armstrong at The Washington Post ran them on the front page. Armstrong told me: ÂThere were documents in there that were unlike any other documents IÂve ever seen ... it was an extraordinary insight into the history of overthrowing (Mohammad) Mosad-degh, the popularly elected leader of Iran; reinstalling the Shah, the CIAÂs role in that; and then the cooperation that the CIA gave with SAVAK, the dreaded secret police of Iran. (They) essentially put a lie to every defense that had been given for the U.S. role in Iran over a 30or 40-year period.ÂŽ Worthy sued, and the U.S. government was forced to return the documents and pay him $16,000. Vincent Harding was a close friend and advisor to Martin Luther King Jr. Harding told us on ÂDemocracy Now!,ÂŽ ÂKing saw the natural connection between what was happening to the poor in the USA, why young men and women were rising up in anger, frus-tration, desperation, saw that action as deeply related to the attention that the country was paying to the devastation it was doing in Vietnam.ÂŽ It was on April 4, 1967, one year to the day before King was assassinated, that he delivered a speech drafted by Harding, a powerful statement against the war in Vietnam. Harding said of the speech, ÂThat draft essentially became the speech, sermon, call, cry of the heart that he put for-ward.ÂŽ King said that day at New YorkÂs Riverside Church, ÂI could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the great-est purveyor of violence in the world today, my own government.ÂŽ Vincent Harding sought to reflect in his speechwriting KingÂs enduring con-cerns: ÂHe was calling us to a way that was very difficult, a way beyond racism, a way beyond materialism and a way beyond militarism.ÂŽ Harding continued for decades after KingÂs death to fight against those very problems, as the first director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center (now known as the King Center) in Atlanta, then as profes-sor of religion and social transforma-tion at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. These two men, William Worthy and Vincent Harding, saw immense social upheaval, revolution, struggle and loss. They dedicated their lives to challeng-ing those in power, and to the pursuit of justice and equality for all. Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 29 JUNE 4, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY ÂThe Perfect WeekÂŽIn less than an hour, two critical phases of your breast cancer treatment will be completed using our latest technology, IOERT. 50 HOURS at work 10 HOURS making dinner 7 HOURS helping with homework you donÂt understand 5 HOURS listening to your husband complain about his boss 1 HOUR SO YOU GET TO DO IT ALL AGAIN NEXT YEAR JFK Medical Center is the Â“rst in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast to oer this new state-of-the-art technology to treat Breast Cancer called Intraoperative Electron Radiation Therapy (IOERT). 5301 S. Congress Ave. Â€ Atlantis, FL 33462 Â€ JFKMC.comFor more information, call 561-548-4JFK (4535). IOERT involves the administration of a single dose of radiation during surgery. After the surgeon removes the cancer, IOERT more precisely targets the remaining tissue at highest risk for recurrence. Because IOERT is done at the time of surgery, it treats the tissue when it is most sensitive to radiation, before scarring occurs. Instead of waiting a few weeks to start radiation therapy, it takes place immediately. A patient will wake up from surgery and have received the full amount of radiation therapy that is typically administered over six weeks. Most eligible patients wonÂt need to undergo any additional radiation therapy. Our team of physicians customizes the treatment plan for every patient. PET TALESFleeing flamesPack a bag for your pet and yourself in case you have to evacuate during a disaster BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickMelissa Duffy was driving away from her home in Carlsbad, Calif., when she glanced in the rearview mirror and saw that the horizon was black with smoke. It was the Poinsettia fire, one of 11 fires rag-ing in San Diego County just two weeks ago. She went back, loaded up her three dogs and went to a friendÂs house. Wildfires have also broken out recently in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Fire season in the western United States is beginning weeks earlier than usual this year, and the National Interagency Fire Center predicts above-normal fire hazards through August in much of the West. If you live in a dry or drought-stricken area, be prepared to evacuate quickly with your pets. Ms. Duffy grabbed her dogsÂ medications and food. One of her dogs is on a strict medical diet, and two require regular medication. She keeps a first-aid kit and leashes in the car. Many people who live in areas prone to earthquakes, floods or fires keep a Âgo bagÂŽ at hand. It should contain impor-tant documents, including copies of your petsÂ vaccination records; a supply of food and water for at least two or three days (a week or more is better); medica-tions for your pets or yourself; a change of clothes; and a favorite toy for your pet to help him feel at home wherever you land. Cat owners may want to have a disposable litter box and litter easily available if they need to grab and go. Those are the basics. Dog trainer Liz Palika, who lives in fireand earth-quake-prone Southern California, has an extensive go-bag that she keeps right inside the garage door so it can be reached even if her house collapses. In addition to the above items, it contains dog bowls, poop bags, camping gear, a first-aid kit, flashlight and batteries, a hand-cranked radio and truck keys. Store items in a large duffle bag or even a large trash can if it will fit in your vehicle. Ms. Palika has another smart hint:ÂTake photos with your smartphone of your prescriptions, pet prescriptions and pet shot records. Organize those on your phone into two files: yours and your petsÂ. Back them up on a memory card. Keep them on your phone, but put the memory card with your first-aid kit. When anything changes, update it.ÂŽ Know where you can go, and have more than one backup plan. Ms. Duffy was able to get back home from her friendÂs house, but later woke up to sirens and the smell of smoke and had to leave again. ÂOur first two Âgo-toÂ friends were also threatened, so we had to find some-where else to go,ÂŽ she says. ÂFour friends offered us their homes, and since we have three dogs, I would rather go there than to a hotel or shelter.ÂŽ Some disaster shelters now allow pets, but itÂs not something you can count on. Keep a list of local pet-friend-ly hotels on your smartphone if you donÂt have friends or relatives who can take in pets. And if all else fails, ask if a hotel will waive its Âno petsÂŽ rule. Many will when disaster strikes. Keep pets restrained when they are in a strange place. A craigslist ad for a lost dog noted that the yellow Lab ran off from the home where the owners were staying after they evacuated from the fires. He was microchipped but wasnÂt wearing his collar. Exchange keys with neighbors so you can care for each otherÂs pets if one family isnÂt home when disaster strikes. Have a plan for communicating via text, Twitter or Facebook that a pet is safe. Even if disaster never strikes, youÂll rest easier knowing that you and your pets are prepared.

Komen South Florida has announced that it will distribute more than $613,000 to support its mission of providing access to breast cancer screening, treatment and education. More than 80 percent of KomenÂs grant monies will be awarded to non-profits providing patient care for uninsured and underinsured women. The remaining grant monies will go to organizations that provide breast health education and help for women diagnosed with breast cancer to navi-gate the treatment process. Komen South Florida is the only resource for Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties that funds essen-tial breast health services for women who have nowhere else to turn. Due to a decrease in fundraising revenue, however, the organization has less money to pass along to the nonprofits it supports. Komen received grant applications from local nonprofits for the 2014-2015 fiscal year requesting $1.4 million but was only able to fund fewer than 50 percent of the requests. And, during the prior year, Komen reported a 38-percent drop in grant funds. Seventy-five percent of the money raised by Komen South Florida stays in the community to fund patient care and breast health education. The remaining 25 percent goes to the national Komen Grants Program for groundbreaking breast cancer research.2014-2015 Grant Recipients Patient Care Grant RecipientsBethesda WomenÂs Health Center $173,990 Boca Raton Regional Hospital $106,002Florida Community Health Centers, Inc. $39,145 Lakeside Medical Center $30,000 Martin Memorial Health Systems $144,253 Education/Navigation RecipientsBethesda WomenÂs Health Center $27,000 Boca Raton Regional Hospital $22,795 Caridad Center, Inc. $23,000 In the Image of Christ $22,999 Martin Memorial Health Systems $24,000 visit our NEW website at www.RevolutionDating.com 561-630-XOXO (9696) Photos From our April and May Events 23 Y ears of Matchmaking Follow the Matchmaker...Kelly Leary has a Masters Degree in Psychology and 23 successful years in the dating industry.

ItÂs wonderful that the academy, created to equip high school students for environmental leader-ship and careers, uses JILONA as a formal outdoor classroom.ÂŽ The chairman of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum, Jim St. Pierre, said, ÂWith each hour vol-unteered, these students help pre-serve a rare patch of old Florida for the future. More than 75,000 visitors climbed the lighthouse last year to marvel at what all of Florida used to be Â„ scrub, tropical hardwood hammock, and tidal mangrove swamp representing 5,000 years of recorded human history.

Friends of Loxahatchee host lionfish sessions on June 6 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Lionfish have recently been the subject of much local conversation, from their effects on the ecosystem to their growing popularity as an edible deli-cacy, this invasive species has many Floridians asking lots of questions about them. To answer all these questions and more, a special Friends of the Loxa-hatchee River meeting is focused entire-ly on the lionfish. The free event, for the whole family, is June 6. For the adults, Dr. Zack Jud will present the latest scientific discoveries about the lionfish, and what they are teaching us about our local aquatic habitats. Educators will be both entertaining and educating attending children about this species. The programs will take place at 12 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. The River Center is located at 805 N. U.S. Highway 1 in Jupiter at Burt Reyn-olds Park. Although there is no charge for this event, seating is limited, so please RSVP by calling 743-7123 or emailing River-Center@Loxahatcheeriver.org. Q
So good a time, in fact, that heÂs hoping to achieve an American first: win-ning a second spin at the gubernatorial wheel, after switching political parties Â„ after serving as a Republican gov-ernor from 2007 to 2010, when he lost a U.S. Senate race as an Independent, then drifting into political purgatory before becoming a Democrat in 2012. ItÂs never been done before.Come Nov. 4, that would make him the 46th governor of Florida, where 19 million citizens face a range of stiff economic and environmental chal-lenges. First, though, he has to win the Democratic primary on Aug. 26. And then he has to perform the hat trick: defeating incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott on Election Day. Recent polls show the two men running close, with the edge going to Crist. Money will play a role, of course, but nobody knows how much. In public terms, Gov. ScottÂs ÂLetÂs Get to WorkÂŽ committee had raised $27.8 million by the end of the first quarter, in March. The Crist committee reported $5.3 million in its coffers. In personal terms, Gov. Scott spent $73 million of his own money to win his first race in 2010 by about 1 percent, records show. Four years earlier, Gov. Crist had entered his first gubernato-rial race with a net worth of about $425,000. He won that one by seven percentage points. ÂI donÂt know what my net worth is now,ÂŽ he says, Âbut itÂs gotten better.ÂŽ Probably not better than Gov. ScottÂs reported $83.7 million net worth as of last July, however. ÂThe unanswered question in this race is, ÂWhat will Charlie look like after Scott spends $100 million trash-ing him?ÂÂŽ says Lucy Morgan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and Tampa Bay Times columnist who covered the state capitol for years. ÂHeÂs spent a lot of money already and it doesnÂt seem to have stuck. Every bad thing I know about Charlie has been written and published some-where, and it doesnÂt seem to stick. If ever there was a Teflon candidate, heÂs it. I know it was said for years about Ronald Reagan, but itÂs him.ÂŽ The flip-side of the Teflon coin, however, may be that nobody knows exact-ly who the candidate is. And that has led people to ask questions that have dogged the candidate for years. Is Charlie Crist a chameleon? Is he weak, or a closet gay, or unethical? And perhaps the hardest question of all those posed repeatedly by the dis-mayed critics in his former political party: Did the governor sell out his party, not to mention his friends and even his beloved parents and sisters (all Republicans), when he commit-ted the following political sins? A. As Republican governor in 2009, he let himself be hugged by a Democratic president in front of the world, before gladly accepting the presidentÂs ÂstimulusÂŽ money for Floridians. B. As a candidate in 2010, he quit the GOP to run for the U.S. Sen-ate as an Independent, against Tea Party favorite and Republican nominee Marco Rubio. C. He became a Democrat in 2012 Â„ and to add insult to injury, he did it in front of the president at a White House Christmas party.The hug that led to the conversionGov. Crist is an author. His 2013 memoir, ÂThe PartyÂs Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat,ÂŽ takes on the big questions, providing answers that have already been challenged in some quarters. A Washington Post opinion blog appearing earlier this month, for exam-ple, targeted Gov. CristÂs assertion that moral courage led to his party switch: ÂCharlie Crist didnÂt leave the Republi-can party because of racism. He left it because he couldnÂt win a primary,ÂŽ the headline asserted. But thatÂs an arguable point, and it comes down to what observers, critics and Gov. Crist alike have taken to call-ing, ÂThe Hug.ÂŽ When President Barack Obama made his first trip out of Washington to promote his stimulus plan in 2009, he chose the location hardest hit by foreclosures and unemployment in the United States Â„ in Florida, on the southwest coast. He also asked Gov. Crist to introduce him there, at a time when most Repub-licans were distancing themselves from everything Democratic. But the governor agreed, in part to save the jobs and homes of cops, fire-fighters, teachers and construction workers, he says. It happened on a clear morning at the epicenter of economic disaster, in Fort Myers. As the president walked out to the podium at the downtown Harborside Event Center, he took the governorÂs hand. Then he pulled Gov. Crist into a momentary embrace. ÂI didnÂt think a thing about it as it was happening,ÂŽ he writes in his mem-oir. ÂBut that simple gesture ended my career as a viable Republican politi-cian. It changed the rest of my life. Reach, pull, release Â„ just like that.ÂŽ In the bar at The Francis, Gov. Crist pauses to hail the waitress. ÂIÂd like some more water, please, Miranda,ÂŽ he says politely. ÂItÂs really good water.ÂŽ He smiles. She smiles back. The best revenge is another vote won. ÂFast forward to not quite a year later,ÂŽ he continues. ÂIn May, I announce IÂm running for the Senate. Marco Rubio is already in the race. Rubio starts sending out literature for his campaign with a photograph of me and the president hugging.ÂŽ Now Gov. Crist pauses, grows grim. ÂSo there I am, hugging the new African-American president.ÂŽ On Sen. RubioÂs part, spotlighting that moment may have been a brilliant if cynical political play on race and politics, a knockout blow that required no debate, no argument, and no words. American politics is a whimsical and funny creature. ÂItÂs not a joke, though,ÂŽ Gov. Crist says sharply. ÂHe didnÂt just put it on the letterhead of his literature, he put it on the outside of the envelope. HeÂs sensitive to this race issue because he should be. Because he used it. For political effect.ÂŽ His anger is evident only in a faintly rising voice. Restraint is typical of him. ÂHe is unfailingly nice Â„ he never loses his temper in public. And I doubt in private,ÂŽ says Ms. Morgan. ÂIÂve had many off-the-record conversations with him over the years Â„ IÂve seen him not happy Â„ but he just doesnÂt lose his cool. I canÂt think of any other politicians IÂve ever known like that.ÂŽ Something of a historian, Gov. Crist points out that the same thing hap-pened to his favorite governor, LeRoy Collins, who served from 1955 to 1961. He was also a Cumberland Law School graduate, a Democrat and a staunch CRISTFrom page 1 Marco Rubio is already in the e or dest ted bthe disormer po litical COURTESY PHOTOSCharlie Crist hits the campaign trail with a rich Florida history.

segregationist who later flip-flopped and embraced civil rights. When Gov. Collins ran for a senate seat in 1968, his opponent beat him by widely distributing a photo of the former governor with an African-American: in that case, walking beside Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma in the early 1960s. But unlike Gov. Collins, after Gov. Crist lost his 2010 senate race, he made his way to a Christmas party at the White House, in December 2012. There, everything changed.Will Prather, who operates dinner theaters in Florida, Penn sylv ania and Arizona and now serves on Gov. CristÂs finance committee, was there to see it. ÂSo weÂre at the Christmas party, and in typical Charlie fashion heÂs working the rope line with his wife, Carole,ÂŽ Mr. Prather recalls. ÂHeÂs trying to get the presidentÂs attention, and I help him. I say, ÂMr. President, itÂs Charlie Crist.Â And he has his voter registration papers all filled out. Right there in his hand. He just has to sign.ÂŽ So he does, with the leader of the free world looking on. ÂHe got a fist pump from the president,ÂŽ Mr. Prather says.The making of Charlie CristThat White House moment was born long ago, in a world that remains a deeply influential part of Gov. CristÂs current being and behavior Â„ the world of his parents, Charles and Nancy. Nearly everyone who knows him acknowledges that. ItÂs something he admits, as well. ÂMy father is my hero,ÂŽ the governor says. ÂDad is our hero. We all say that,ÂŽ concurs his youngest sister, Catherine Crist Kennedy, a 49-year-old associate vice president of Academic Affairs at St. Petersburg College. ÂWe attribute so much of what we all have to Mom and Dad. We all feel that Dad is the smartest man we know. He is a sponge. He and Mom are always reading. HeÂs ingrained that in us.ÂŽ His parentsÂ values remain his own, Gov. Crist says. ÂI was a Republican because my parents were Republicans. Same reason IÂm a Methodist. Mom and Dad are.ÂŽ Born in Altoona, Pa., Gov. Crist, 57, came to St. Petersburg at the age of 3. His parents had decided to do a medi-cal residency there. His father, now 81, is a doctor who still practices medicine full time. The Crist family grew to four children: Margaret, Charlie, Elizabeth and Catherine, all of whom still live near their parents, with their own families. Margaret is an educator, like Catherine, and Elizabeth is a medical doctor. They were public school children.Charlie attended Riviera Junior High and St. Petersburg High School, where he became the starting quarterback on the football team. Like the boating, fishing and hunting Dr. Crist shared with his son into adult-hood, he also shared his sonÂs football experience, becoming the pro bono team doctor. Overt racism remained a fact of life in those days, Gov. Crist says, and the team had many black players, so nobody else would do the job. The family attended the Methodist Church on Sundays, and life in the Crist household was loving and secure. ÂWe had dinner every night at 5 p.m.,ÂŽ recalls Catherine Kennedy. ÂCon-versations were lively. All of us had responsibilities and chores. We didnÂt want for anything, but we werenÂt given everything, either.ÂŽ Respectful behavior was expected both inside and outside the home. ÂWhen Charlie was little, he used some bad language in school once, and they had to call home. It was really serious,ÂŽ his sister says. Dr. Crist would take Charlie and the girls on house calls, too, she remembers. ÂEverything was a teaching moment for Dad. If a homeless person walked in front of the car, when some other people might have made fun of him, I can remember him saying, ÂThat is somebodyÂs son, or brother or father.Â It was always instilled in all of us that you treat everybody with respect.ÂŽ The family would sit out on a screened porch to watch the magnifi-cent evening skies settle in summer over Tampa Bay. There was music in the house Â„ recorded classical, and the live banjo of Dr. Crist, along with gui-tar (Charlie and Margaret) and piano (Elizabeth). As adults, Catherine and Charlie can discuss and share anything, she acknowledges, and frequently they stood in as dates for each other on social occasions. He had graduated from law school by then, and she had returned from completing her under-graduate work at Emory University in Atlanta. But her brother was suffering, she remembers, a young man stung by divorce. It had been a long and winding road to that point.Becoming the man in fullIn his senior year at St. Pete High, Charlie Crist suffered a significant leg injury when a linebacker tackled him behind the line, he recounts in his book. That reduced his chances for a football scholarship, so he went to Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C., and walked on as a quar-terback. At just over 6 feet and carrying about 180 pounds, he was 20 pounds heavier and an inch taller than he is now. He started junior varsity games against Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State, he remembers, before giving up the far north (anything north of Atlan-ta) for a return to Florida, and FSU, where he graduated in 1978. ÂYou go north of Atlanta, and you donÂt see the sun for five months,ÂŽ he says. ÂI never knew that until I went to Wake Forest. And I didnÂt like it.ÂŽ People he met in both universities, especially in the Pi Kappa Alpha frater-nity at Florida State, remain his lifelong friends. And most of them are Republi-cans, like all of his family members. Will they support him now that heÂs a Democrat? ÂI think they will,ÂŽ says Lucy Morgan. ÂI havenÂt looked, but I think theyÂll give him money. And if they feel they canÂt do that, theyÂll find some other way to help him.ÂŽ As for his Republican family mem-bers, says Catherine, ÂOf course IÂll vote for him. We all will.ÂŽ At FSU, Charlie became vice presi-dent of the student body, in his first taste of a public role. Then with a close friend, now Judge Cory Ciklin of the Fourth District Court of Appeal in Palm Beach County, he went to law school in Alabama. Old friends matter: Gov. Crist appointed Judge Ciklin to the Fourth Circuit in 2008. Their friendship was born in politics, at FSU. And so was the governorÂs first marriage. ÂI came to Charlie in an odd way,ÂŽ the judge recalls. ÂA woman named Amanda Morrow was my running mate when I ran (unsuccessfully) for student body president in my junior year at FSU. And unbeknownst to me she was dating some guy named Charlie Crist.ÂŽ Ms. Morrow would soon become Gov. CristÂs wife, and Cory Ciklin would later transfer from Samford Uni-versityÂs law school back to FSU, leav-ing Charlie in Alabama to finish his law degree, and to end a young marriage that lasted only a year. Finally, Gov. Crist came back to Florida to pass the state Bar exam Â„ on his third attempt, while working in St. Petersburg in his first job, as counsel for Minor League Baseball.Expectations about marriageOne of the longtime rumors about Gov. Crist suggests that he may be gay Â„ something far from the truth, Mrs. Kennedy asserts. ÂHe had several very serious girlfriends (after his first marriage ended). They were exclusive relationships that lasted for years. ItÂs hard, because the family loved all of them. They were beautiful, smart, independent women. They had their own careers.ÂŽ But her brother avoided marriage.In those years heÂd started as a state senator from Pinellas County, later becoming an aide to Sen. Connie Mack III, during his 1988 campaign. ÂHe was truly my mentor,ÂŽ Gov. Crist says now Â„ a fiscal conservative, something of a social moderate, and a man who could get along with every-body. Gov. Crist also lost his first U.S. Senate run against Bob Graham in 1998, then was appointed as the state educa-tion commissioner by Gov. Jeb Bush in 2000, before winning an election to become the attorney general of Florida under Gov. Bush in 2002. In none of those positions did the expectation of marriage play a role. But public expectations change. Lucy Morgan asked him about it once. ÂHe was attorney general and I asked him why Â„ why he hadnÂt married,ÂŽ Ms. Morgan recalls. ÂI said, ÂCharlie, you need to be married to become gov-ernor.Â ÂAnd he said, ÂI made a mistake once, I donÂt want to do it again. For many reasons.ÂÂŽ But things were different when he met Carole Oumano Rome. He aban-doned the old caution. A Georgetown University graduate and a business owner from New York, she had two daughters and was in the process of divorce, his sister recalls, but none of that mattered. ÂThatÂs when we knew Charlie had found the right woman,ÂŽ Catherine Kennedy says. ÂIt was immediate with Carole.ÂŽ Mrs. Crist did not respond to requests seeking her comments for this story.Back in the frayMeanwhile, Gov. CristÂs political career, which spun off the track in 2010, has regained its momentum. After his loss to Marco Rubio, he went to work for Morgan & Morgan, the broadly advertised law firm with the slogan, ÂFor the people.ÂŽ Many of those people appear to want him return to Tallahassee as governor. And if they arenÂt sure, he aims to convince them one person at a time, leading with his patent smile and atten-tive interest. ÂI am an optimist,ÂŽ he says, when asked why he hasnÂt grown cynical about the political process. ÂIÂm ideal-istic. I was idealistic when I was a boy. I have a deep faith and belief in God, and in good. ThereÂs a quote. ItÂs by Edmund Burke: ÂAll that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.ÂÂŽ Rich Segall, a Charlie Crist donor who has come to the Francis with his wife, Claire, for a fundraising dinner, says he thinks the Republican-turned-Democrat is positioned to do a lot more than nothing. ÂI find him honest and straightforward and personable. Look, I think fiscally most of us are somewhat con-servative. So is he. On the social issues I believe in, he clearly, very strongly, has ideas that are quite in line with my own. So I think heÂll appeal to moderate Republicans, and to Democrats alike.ÂŽ On the issue of flip-flopping, Mr. Segall sees the Crist transformation as a strength, not a weakness. So does Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch, who has worked with Gov. Crist on various issues for years. ÂIs he a change-his-mind guy?ÂŽ the commissioner asks rhetorically. The answer is yes, on occasion. ÂThe flip side of that is, when you learn, and you gather more facts and the science or the environment changes, the intel-ligent thing to do is to evolve with that new information.ÂŽ Among the issues, the commissioner says: the current state governmentÂs dismissal of Med-icaid expansion dollars, and an aggressive environmen-tal policy that confronts the effects of global warming, especially in such regions as South Florida or Pinellas County. ÂThe time to deal with it is not 50 years from now, but now. You gotta have that in your leadership,ÂŽ he insists. Gov. Crist argues his own case this way, when faced with the flip-flop question Â„ which is, after all, not just about politics, but about character. ÂI would tell your readers this: CharlieÂs the same guy. I havenÂt changed. The only thing thatÂs changed is my party registration, because my former party was hijacked by the extremists of the party. ÂBut I am still a fiscal conservative, I donÂt want to waste your money. Or mine. I am a social moderate. I always have been. For me, itÂs never really been about right versus left. ItÂs always been right versus wrong. If I see a wrong, I try to right it, whether IÂm attorney general or governor or com-missioner of education. IÂm still that same person.ÂŽ That same person is also still a salesman, which is true of every politician. ÂIf you want to know more,ÂŽ he says, grinning, Âbuy my book. If you have time. Buy the book. Read it.ÂŽ Q COURTESY PHOTOSCharlie Crist with wife Carole.Gov. Charlie Crist and Will Prather at a White House Christmas Party in December 2012. Gov.

The kids are running around out-side, and the smell of food sizzling on the grill drifts through the air. Summer has officially arrived. But wait Â„ before you cool off in the water or get ready for a delicious picnic, check out these safe-ty tips so your fun-filled season doesnÂt include a trip to the emergency room. Keep your cool and drink lots of water to avoid heat-related illnesses. DonÂt wait until youÂre thirsty to drink. Heat cramps, often caused by dehydration, can progress to heat exhaustion and potentially fatal heat stroke. To protect yourself against the heat, stay indoors as much as possible, wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothes, eat well-balanced, light meals and avoid strenuous work during extreme heat.Be water wise and teach your children to swim. At the pool, swim with lifeguard supervision and obey all rules. Stay away from water intakes, drains or filters in pools and hot tubs since long hair or clothing could become entan-gled. At the lake, river or beach, swim only in designated areas. DonÂt dive into shallow water and risk neck injuries or paralysis. If you get caught in an ocean current, swim parallel to shore and wait for the current to lessen. Remember that alcohol and water donÂt mix when it comes to swimming, diving and boating. Bake a cake, not your skin. Try to limit sun exposure during peak times (gener-ally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and apply sunscreen at least 20 to 30 minutes before you hit the beach or pool and reapply every two hours. If you do have sunburn, try taking a cool bath or shower, applying aloe gel or other soothing lotion, or taking aspi-rin or ibuprofen to reduce inflammation. Redness and pain associated with sun-burn may not appear immediately, but you could feel the effects of blisters and peeling skin for days. Severe reactions, which can include fever, chills, nausea or rash, may require medical attention. Have fun throwing the ball, not throwing out your back or shoulder. Before you start exercising to get in swimsuit shape, check with your doctor. Then make sure you have the right equipment, including properly fitting shoes. Start sl owly to avoid overuse injuries such as tendonitis and be sure to drink lots of water. DonÂt forget warm-up and stretching exercises. If you do happen to overdo it, first aid begins with P-R-I-C-E: Q Protect the injured area by not using it. Q Rest the injured area. Q Ice the injury to limit swelling. Q Compress the injured area. Q Elevate the injured body part. Pass the salad please, but hold the salmonella, shigella and E. coli. Food poisoning can ruin a good time, so watch what you eat. Cook meat, poultry, fish and shellfish thoroughly and make sure prepared salads (such as egg, tuna, potato or chicken) are not left out at room temperature for more than two hours. DonÂt eat raw oysters or under-cooked mussels, clams or other seafood. Wash fruits and vegetables carefully. Avoid eating raw or undercooked eggs. Common signs and symptoms of food poisoning include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and fever.Enjoy a juicy slice of watermelon, dive into a cool pool and build your best sand-castle. You canÂt remove all the risks but by putting safety first and following a few simple steps, you can enjoy your summer and make lots of happy memories.And if an accident does happen, Palm Beach Gardens Medical CenterÂs emer-gency room is available 24 hours a day to get you and your family back on track for summer fun.

ÂDoes my mother honestly think I canÂt hear her when sheÂs in the next room, badmouthing my father? ÂShe tries to make it seem like sheÂs putting in an effort to be fair, but sometimes I think she deliberately wants to turn me against Dad. I know what she REALLY says, so who does she think sheÂs kidding? ÂMy parents separated two years ago, and are so caught up in attacking each other, they donÂt realize how much they upset me. My parents have faults, but I love them both. Sometimes it feels like they each want me to hate the other.ÂŽI meet so many parents who worry that their divorces will cause serious emotional damage to their children. What they donÂt always consider is that their behavior and attitudes towards each other can be as important a factor in the eventual emotional adjustment of their children as the actual family break-up. If youÂre going through a divorce, it may be very painful to accept that the very person you once shared your hopes and dreams with may have now become a legal adversary. When people believe theyÂve been terribly wronged by a spouse, they may be inclined to win their childrenÂs loyalty by exposing the otherÂs churlish behavior. And, when their children are in close proximity, itÂs so easy to use them as a sounding board, including them in con-versations they may later regret. And, of course, the Âinjured partyÂŽ may carry that wicked hope they can build them-selves up by shooting down the very person who caused so much pain. This can be a hollow victory, however Â„ and can often backfire Â„ with the children becoming quite resentful. Young people are often confused by the unfolding drama, especially because they may be given half-truths or contradictory infor-mation. This puts them in the position of hav-ing to size up situations on their own. And, they donÂt always get it right! Sometimes they become frightened because they have blown things out of proportion and may have imagined all kinds of negative scenarios that might never happen (i.e. ÂI may NEVER see my dad again, or we may end up living in a home-less shelter.ÂŽ)Understandably, there is often tremendous pressure when a young person feels he is being asked to choose between parents. A parent is a parent, and children usually have an investment in maintaining this important relation-ship (unless they have been given very strong reasons against this). They usually recognize that parents have faults and, on their own, try very hard to make sense of why a parent would have behaved so poorly. And, even if they donÂt choose sides, they may worry that they are some-how letting BOTH parents down.Children of all ages often blame themselves for many of these occur-rences, and may feel a sense of deep shame for things that are obviously not in their control. ItÂs important to note that so many young people understand the world by placing themselves in the center of the universe. They tend to process events around them by the way their lives are impacted. To them, fam-ily problems reflect negatively on ALL of them, so they may be highly embar-rassed when people outside the family are privy to the sordid details. Unfortu-nately, they might feel guilty that some-how they could have prevented a parent from leaving. They may blame a bitter parent, believing this parentÂs negative behavior may have stood in the way of a possible reconciliation. Teenagers, especially, are acutely sensitive to pub-lic opinion and will take their parentsÂ disclosures very much to heart. Parents face the daunting task of being sensitive to the specialized needs of children at each stage of develop-ment. After a terrible hurt, it often helps when parents are able to vent and let off steam. However, it takes tremendous maturity to show good judgment and restraint when a parent may be feeling very vulnerable. Spending time with trusted friends and relatives often makes a huge differ-ence and may be a safeguard to resist the temptation of confiding inappropri-ately to minor children. Maintaining the childrenÂs previous structure and routines may add a sense of security and normalcy for everyone, even if the parent feels shaky and out of con-trol. Parents can head off many conflicts by spending as much indi-vidualized time as they can with each child, to assure them of their concern, and to give them an opportunity to ask questions and voice their fears. Our children have not asked to be part of the mess the adults around them often make. Par-ents who take the high road are taking impor-tant steps to help their children adjust to very frightening, and often tumultuous, circumstances. And, as importantly, the individuals who hold their heads high by maintaining a digni-fied, considerate demeanor are the ones who will pave the way for their own eventual sense of confidence and well being.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 29 JUNE 4, 2014 A15 Prom draft A week before the National Football League held its 2014 Draft Day in May, a large contingent of junior and senior boys staged their own draft day at Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach, Calif., Âdividing upÂŽ the available girls to ask to the upcom-ing prom. As in the NFL, the drafters ÂscoutÂŽ the draftees, and a Ârule bookÂŽ notes the draftÂs boundaries (e.g., this year, sophomore girls are eligible). The girls, of course, can decline the invitation, but the draft, as in the NFL, is designed to discourage a selected girl from being ÂpoachedÂŽ by Âcom-petingÂŽ boys. Obviously, many in the community expressed horror at the draft, with the principal denouncing it and urging parents to rein in their sons, but one of the drafted girls wrote that the whole thing was just ÂfunÂŽ and Âis not, was never, and will never ever be used to objectify the girls.ÂŽ CanÂ’t possibly be true Q The downfall of Russia-sympathizing Ukrainian president Vik-tor Yanukovych in February (which eventually provoked Vladimir PutinÂs retaliation against Ukraine) acceler-ated when his countrymen learned of his startlingly opulent lifestyle (e.g., gold toilets, a private zoo) Â„ including catching a video glimpse of a nude portrait Mr. Yanukovych had commissioned of himself by art-ist Olga Oleynik. Mr. Yanukovych, a not-particularly-buff 63-year-old man, was portrayed reclining and with an undersized male endowment. (Ms. Oleynik told Agence France-Presse news service that she had done a simi-lar portrait of Mr. Putin Â„ more gen-erously endowed Â„ but was ÂafraidÂŽ to show it in public or to disclose whether it was actually commissioned by Mr. Putin.) Q Skylar King, 28, filed a lawsuit in Clayton, Mo., in April against den-tist Mark Meyers (and his Same Day Dentures clinic) for a 2009 session in which Mr. Meyers somehow obtained Mr. KingÂs consent to extract all 32 of his teeth and provide dentures, promptly after obtaining $5,235 on Mr. KingÂs motherÂs credit card. Mr. King, who was seeking treatment for an abscessed tooth, said Dr. Meyers warned that he was at risk of Âfatal blood poisoningÂŽ unless all teeth were yanked. Dr. Meyers insisted that Mr. King actually requested the proce-dure, even though X-rays revealed that at least 28 of the teeth were treatable. Q As of late March, the SainsburyÂs supermarket in Basford, England, still had an operational ATM on an out-side wall even though its screen and controls were only 15 inches off the ground, forcing customers to bend over or kneel down to get cash. A SainsburyÂs spokesman, shown a photo by a reporter of a user squatting Âincredibly uncomfortabl(y),ÂŽ said no one had complained, but that the store would look into moving the machine. The only explanation offered for the placement was that the store is locat-ed on a hill. Unclear on the concept Q Wellma ÂTootieÂŽ Shafer, 46, was fired as a cashier at the Last Chance Market in Russell, Iowa, after a cus-tomer reported her engaging in Âsex-ualÂŽ banter at the register. Her boss, Rick Braaksma, explained, ÂWe cannot ... talk about adult situations in front of other customers,ÂŽ and when Ms. Shafer sought unemployment com-pensation, Mr. Braaksma challenged her application. However, among the items Last Chance sells are Wake the FÂ„Up Coffee, The Hottest FÂ„-ing Sauce (noted, the label states, for its Âass-burning qualityÂŽ), and The Hot-test FÂ„-ing Nuts (all product names using the explicit ÂF wordÂŽ), and a state administrative judge granted Ms. Shafer benefits, showing (according to an April Des Moines Register report) little sympathy for the storeÂs contra-dictory policy. Q Refresher Course on Buddhism Needed: An unnamed 40-year-old man was charged in Briec, France, in May for a February incident in which his cat knocked over his statue of Bud-dha, demolishing it. The man appar-ently so reveres Buddha that, enraged, he tortured the cat by tossing it into his washing machine and setting it for a cycle at the equivalent of 104 degrees F. The continuing crisis Q Brazilian authorities told reporters in April that villagers in remote Ayopaya, needing to recover three motorbikes stolen by two men, tied them to a tree of woe for several days until relatives came up with compen-sation. The tree was a permanent host for ants that produce a venom with anti-inflammatory properties used to treat arthritis, and though relatives paid up three days later, both men required hospitalization, one with kid-ney failure. Q Underreported among the 24-hour news saturation in April on the sinking of the South Korean ferry en route from Incheon to the recre-ational island of Jeju is that a primary attraction on Jeju is ÂLoveLand,ÂŽ a theme park with bold, uninhibited sexual structures, and a traditional honeymoon destination. Visitors enter through giant spread female legs, and most park mascots are anthropomor-phic figures representing the male and female sex organs. The park contains 140 sculptures of humans in sexual positions and of phallus statues and stone labia Â„ and, reportedly, some-thing called a Âhands-on masturbation cycle.ÂŽ Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE Doctor, why do I hear myself talk and my ears feel full when I have allergy and sinus problems? What does the ability to fly, scuba dive, snorkel and even go up in an elevator have in common? Each of these daily activities depend upon a normal functioning Eustachian Tube. Without this tube connecting your ear to your nose, you would have incredible pain in your ear, run the risk of rupturing your ear drum, and worse yet cause a leak in your inner ear as the middle ear air pocket has to nor-malize with the outside barometric pressure. When functioning normally, a simple swallow will let air go up into the middle ear to prevent rupture and pain. The lining of the nose and sinuses is identical to the lining of the eustachian tube. Just as the nose swells with allergy and infection, so does the eustachian tube. This blocked corridor creates the fullness you feel. As result, your hearing is muffled and when you talk it is amplified in that ear. When recurrent infections occur with constant facial pain and pressure, blocked ears, altered sense of smell, bloody mucous... it is time to see your ENT doctor. Invariably, a CT scan of the sinuses will show the active/chronic infection. Today, relief can be done quickly with balloon sinuplasty to drain and open sinuses perma-nently. When the irritation is removed from the nose and sinuses, it allows the eustachian tube to drain with relief of the stuffy blocked ears.!!

IÂ’ve been embarrassed with them slipping off while eating and talking. Should I consider implants? Answer: Yes, you should absolutely consider implants. The reason your dentures no longer fit is because you are loosing jaw bone. Dental implants maintain and stimu-late the jaw bone in which they are placed. This means instead of loosing valuable facial bone due to tooth loss, implants can preserve and maintain that bone. Using implants to hold dentures in place is an excellent way to stabilize your teeth. You will be able to chew similar to if you had your natural teeth, enjoying the foods you once avoided without fear of any embar-rassing moments. One other benefit implants provide when incorporated in the fabrication of dentures is that they allow your teeth to be placed more favorably for facial esthetics. As you loose bone, it is first lost from the outside in. That is why your face appears to collapse. Implants allow your new teeth to be placed more to the outside of the ridge and resist the influences of your facial muscle, giving you a fuller more youthful look.Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 29 JUNE 4, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYHire a professional to help you navigate the Social Security labyrinth Aging creates physical, emotional and financial challenges. Layer on top of those challenges the additional burden of understanding the various possibilities for benefits under Social Security and having to make deci-sions on how to best proceed. ItÂs not easy for most of us, especially for the financially unsophisticated. The challenges are exacerbated for those who are in tight financial situations prior to age 66 and who will have to choose between taking a lesser pay-ment by starting retirement earlier (as the money is needed) or taking a larger payment at a later age. My interest in my Social Security benefits was piqued whilst listening to a morning radio talk show. An advertis-er for a retirement consulting services firm (Grace Financial Services) posed a simple question: Do you understand the options you have for taking Social Security? If not, call them. And so I called Grace Financial Services. There were some very interesting/ eye-widening facts that I discovered. I decided then that a 10-minute phone conversation would not suffice. I real-ized that the decision I would make should not be taken lightly, as the difference in one plan versus another was hundreds of thousands of dollars. I would not want to make a decision about my Social Security until I had consulted with a new breed of retire-ment specialist: retirement income certified professional, or RICP. I also decided after that initial phone con-sultation that I would not take a recommendation from a sole RICP professional but would make a deci-sion after visiting with several RICP professionals as there is some degree of comfort when several professionals sing the same song. Finally, I realized that I would take these recommenda-tions to my accountant to run the vari-ous Social Security payouts alongside probable retirement income streams. (My next steps are merely offered as suggestions for inclusion in your game plan; there might be many more steps applicable to your situation.) What follows is intended to motivate you to explore your Social Security in much greater detail. Q Will Social Security be there for everyone who is currently paying into the system? It depends upon your age and if the federal government moves to solve its large fiscal deficits. If you are 60 or older, it is a safe assumption that you will get benefits Â„ much safer than for those who are 30. The federal gov-ernmentÂs deficits from Social Secu-rity and other entitlement programs are on steep growth tracks related to demographics and, for Medicare, rising health-care costs. Benefits for future (now much younger) recipients face the risk of curtailment. Q What size are payments? The average individual payment in 2014 is $1,294; for a couple, it is $2,111. The largest payment that can be received is $2,642 even if you earned hundreds of millions over your life-time. Q To what payment stream are you entitled? You need to consult with the Social Security Administration, but make an appointment armed with additional facts about your circumstances and your preferences for earlier or later payment streams. If you are taking your benefits at full retirement age or at an early retirement age or at a delayed age. Early retire-ment age is 62; delayed retirement age is 70; and full retirement age varies depending upon the year you were born. If you take your benefit earlier, then you get a lesser benefit amount for the entirety of your Social Security payments. If you take a delayed retire-ment, you get an increased payment for the entirety of your Social Security payments. Full retirement age has undergone revisions in an attempt to reduce the federal governmentÂs financial liability since weÂre living longer. Regardless of the reasons, for those who were born between 1943 to 1954, full retire-ment age is 66; for those born earlier, full retirement age is lowered by twomonth increments to 1937 and earlier and 65 is the retirement age (www.ssa.gov/retire2). There are intricacies to figuring your Social Security payment options. For instance, if you delay your Social Security to age 70 and you live another 35 years, then you would likely collect hundreds of thousands of dollars of increased benefits. Many of Social SecurityÂs complexities relate to spousal benefits, for those who are currently a spouse; wid-owed and not working; widowed but still working; divorced but the former spouse is now deceased; divorced and not working; and divorced but still working. Each of these five spousal circumstances has a different formula and approach. For example, if your ex-spouse dies, and you were married for 10 or more years, you become eligible for divorced Âsurvivor benefits,ÂŽ which are worth up to 100 percent of what your ex-spouse was due. SurvivorÂs benefits are available to divorced spouses as early as age 60 (50 if youÂre disabled and remarriage conditions apply.) Social Security is not something you want to navigate without several expertsÂ counsel and your accountantÂs review.

Follow her on Twitter @rohnshowalter and on Linkedin. w I a c m c d jeannette SHOWALTER CFA showalter@ww fsyst ems.com MONEY & INVESTING KOVEL: ANTIQUESFederal effort could outlaw old ivory BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL An heirloom bronze elephant with ivory tusks, great-grandmotherÂs piano with ivory keys, a vintage ivory chess set or an antique silver teapot with a small ivory inset in the handle to keep it cool may be ÂendangeredÂŽ by proposed laws that could be in place sometime in June. Buying, selling or importing ivory from recently killed African elephants already is illegal and has been for about 25 years. But an executive order issued by President Barack Obama would extend the ban to include all antique ivory harvested from elephants that died before 1914. There would be a law forbidding sales, even gifts to museums, of any ivory, includ-ing antique pieces. This affects antiques dealers and collectors, knife makers and collectors, Inuit craftsmen, owners of mahjong and chess sets, and manufac-turers of musical instruments, including guitars and violins Â„ the list could go on. And those in favor of strong endangered species laws want to also insist that all confiscated antique carved ivory art be destroyed Â„ not even given to a museum. Already thousands of pounds of ivory art objects have been destroyed. This will cause huge losses to companies, collec-tors and museums. Express your opinion in this controversy. ThereÂs still time to contact your U.S. senator, representative or the Fish & Wildlife Service to make your thoughts known. For links to more detailed information, go to www.kovels.com/latest-news/new-ivory-ban.html.Q: My bedroom suite has a chest of drawers and dresser made of light wood. They are marked ÂBirchcraft by Baum-ritter.ÂŽ Does the suite have any value other than as used furni-ture?A: Baumritter Corp. was founded by Theodore Baumritter and his brother-in-law, Nathan Ancell, in New York City in 1932. The company sold housewares. Baumrit-ter and Ancell bought a furniture company in Beecher Falls, Vt., in 1936. The company introduced a 28-piece line of ÂEthan AllenÂŽ furniture, named after the Revolutionary War hero, in 1939. The name of the com-pany became Ethan Allen Industries in 1972. Furniture with a modern look and light color is bought by those wanting a Â50s look and sells for a little more than other used furniture.Q: I bought a heavy glass vase at auction several years ago. ItÂs 14 inches tall and 7 inches wide. The signature on the back is ÂLegras.ÂŽ The vase is decorated with trees around a lake. The orange-colored sky and reflection in the lake look like it is sunset or sunrise. When light shines through the glass, it looks like the sun is shining through the trees. Can you tell me anything about the maker and the vaseÂs value?A: Auguste Legras founded his glassworks at St. Denis, France, in 1864. Legras is known for its cameo glass and enamel-decorated glass in Art Nouveau designs. The company merged with Pantin in 1920. Legras vases sell for a few hundred to over a thousand dol-lars. A vase with a similar scene sold at auction for $355 earlier this year.Q: My mother left me her complete set of Salem China. It was a wedding gift, and she may have used the china once or twice through the years. I have used the dishes a couple of times since she gave them to me. All the pieces are perfect. TheyÂre decorated with a central bouquet of colorful pastel flowers. The mark on the bottom is a small circle with the word ÂSalemÂŽ inside it and a cof-fee cup in front of it. Under that are the words ÂPrincess Margaret, 23 K Gold, 51 Y.ÂŽ Please estimate a value for the set. A: Salem China Co. manufactured dinnerware in Salem, Ohio, from 1898 to 1967. The mark on your dishes dates the set to 1951, the year before Princess MargaretÂs older sister, Elizabeth, became Queen of England. Salem China named the pattern to take advantage of AmericansÂ fascina-tion with Great BritainÂs royal family. The Princess Margaret pattern is not a com-mon one. A 12-piece set of dishes in the pattern recently sold online for $225. Q: My WorldÂs Fair souvenir is unusual. ItÂs a little booklet titled ÂNew York WorldÂs Fair 1939 Needle BookÂŽ and holds all 90 of its original needles inside. The color design on the front is of the fairÂs Trylon and Perisphere. The booklet, marked ÂCopyright Pilgrim Needle Co.,ÂŽ is about 6 by 4 inches. Is it worth anything? A: New YorkÂs 1939 WorldÂs Fair is one of the most popular among collectors of WorldÂs Fair memorabilia. But your needle book, while unusual, is not rare. Several versions were handed out at the fair. Most of them sell today for $5 to $10. Tip: To keep scrapbooks from deteriorating, store them away from strong light, heat and moisture.

It was made in about 1900 and sold in March 2014 at a Cottone Auctions in Geneseo, N.Y., for $920. If the suggested new antique ivory regulations become law, this antique bronze will be worthless because it will be illegal to sell it or even give it to a museum.

CountyÂ’s new foreclosure cases down 44 percent from April 2013 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe number of new foreclosure filings in Palm Beach County remained flat in April, and remain lower than last year, according to the latest statistics from the Clerk & Comptroller, Palm Beach County. There were 535 new foreclosures filed in April Â„ a 0.38 percent increase from 533 cases filed in March, but a 44.4 percent decrease from 962 cases filed in April 2013. ÂWeÂve returned to case levels that we saw in the fourth quarter of 2006, before our filings increased to the point where we handled as many as 3,000 cases a month,ÂŽ Clerk Sharon Bock said in a prepared state-ment. ÂCompare that to our situation now, where we had approximately 2,100 foreclo-sure cases filed with our office in the first four months of 2014.ÂŽ The number of mortgages and deeds recorded in Palm Beach County increased for the second consecutive month. There were 6,955 deeds recorded in April, a 16.2 percent increase from 5,987 deeds recorded in March and a 4.2 percent increase from 6,675 deeds recorded in April 2013. There were 2,987 mortgages recorded in April, a 15 percent increase from 2,597 mort-gages recorded in March, but a 31.2 percent decrease from 4,343 mortgages recorded in April 2013. The ClerkÂs office is the keeper of Palm Beach CountyÂs official records, and records all deeds and mortgages submitted for recording in Palm Beach County. There were 945 properties sold at foreclosure auction in April, according to sta-tistics from Grant Street Group, the facili-tator of ClerkAuction. Of those, 722 were sold back to the plaintiff Â„ typically a bank or mortgage company Â„ in the foreclosure proceeding, and 223 were sold to a third party. There were 481 foreclosure sales canceled in April, out of 1,426 scheduled for sale. The cancellation rate was 33.7 percent, compared with 34.1 percent in March. The Clerk & ComptrollerÂs office processes all foreclosure-related court docu-ments, notices of action and motions. After a foreclosure judgment, the office conducts the foreclosure auction and issues all post-sale documents, such as the certificate of title.

A28 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 29-JUNE 4, 2014 A GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE The Great 8 at Roger Dean Stadium Â„ the Jupiter ballparkÂs celebration of the 2014 Florida State League season Â„ continues May 31 with ÂHalfway to Halloween.ÂŽ The evening is a matchup between the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Dunedin Blue Jays, set to begin at 6:35 p.m. And, as with the other seven games highlighted by special events at Roger Dean, the night will feature a fun theme Â„ this one observing Halloween in May. Festivities at ÂHalfway to HalloweenÂŽ will include all of the elements integral to any Halloween party: trick-or-treat-ing, costume contests, and a haunted front office. The event is also a fun time for kids to dress back up in their once-worn costumes, complete with a costume contest that puts the vote in the hands of the fans. All kids 15 and under are encouraged to dress for the occasion and trick-or-treat through Roger Dean StadiumÂs concourse. In a fun, sky-high twist, candy will also be dropped from a heli-copter in the outfield prior to the start of the game, at approximately 5 p.m. The Great 8 summertime ballgames have been successful for Roger Dean Stadium so far this season. With past events ÂStar Wars NightÂŽ and ÂBoot, Scoot & BaseballÂŽ behind them, and Halfway to Halloween, Kids Fest, Mega Bash, Swings & Wings, Baseball & Brews, and Back to School Night up ahead, Roger Dean Stadium General Manager Mike Bauer said, ÂOur first two Great 8 events have been every-thing we hoped for. They were fun, well attended and I think our fans really enjoyed themselves. I expect Halfway to Halloween to fall right in line.ÂŽ Mr. Bauer then asked, ÂWho says we canÂt celebrate Halloween in May?ÂŽ He added, ÂIÂm expecting between 1,500 and 2,000 families for this event. It is going to be a great way for families and kids to really have a fun time. IÂm looking forward to the haunted front office most. We have some great char-acters that kids of all ages will enjoy. ItÂs not going to be too scary.ÂŽ Q Â„ Roger Dean Stadium is at 4751 Main St., Abacoa, Jupiter.

Matt Mangano is having a very good time playing with the Zac Brown Band. But the groupÂs new bassist insists heÂs playing far more than country music Â„ the genre most often associated with the group. ÂI kind of put ZacÂs music out of the genre of country and into the genre of good,ÂŽ Mr. Mangano said. ÂThatÂs what it isÂƒ. We go from a country song to a hard-rocking song to a reggae-ish song to a bluegrassy song. ItÂs fun. And itÂs fun to see people respond. TheyÂre singing with every song, dancing around.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 29 JUNE 4, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A29 When I meet up with my single girlfriends, the discussion always starts the same way: ÂWhy canÂt I find someone?ÂŽ We rant against the pain of dating and rail against the injustices of being single. Then we move on to dissect our friendsÂ relationships, and more often than not we wind up agreeing that those relationships are, well, kind of a drag. The discussion always ends in the exact opposite place of where we started: We decide that we donÂt, in fact, want a relationship. Which is a good way to get through the single life. How much easier is it to carry the banner of self-chosen iso-lation than to admit we might actually be missing out? IÂm certainly guilty. Long ago, I decided that being single is the best choice for me. Sure, IÂd have men come and go, but who needs a steady partner? Of course, just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize IÂve gotten it all wrong. My mother had surgery this past week Â„ nothing complicated, nothing too worrisome, just enough to bring us to the outpatient surgery center for a few hours. In hospitals, IÂve noticed, we are at our most vulner-able. (Where else could you wear a cotton gown open in the back and still be considered fully dressed?) I mean the patients, of course, but the loved ones, too. In the family waiting room, it was impossible for me to ignore the depth of emotion on all sides. Many of the surgeries scheduled that day were for young children Â„ I had seen them arrive, and I waited alongside the parents. I tried not to peer into their worry. Like the thin curtains that separate patients, the distance between us served as a functional barrier that we silently agreed to observe. So I ate the sandwich IÂd brought, checked emails and read my book, pretending not to see the couple across from me as they cried quietly together. The husband held his wifeÂs hand and every so often heÂd reach over to pull her in for a hug. I was still there when the doc-tor came out to tell them everything had gone well, that their baby was doing fine, and to see the way they carried each other in their relief. When my mother came out of surgery, I sat with her in the post-op area while she sipped ginger ale through a straw. The nurses wheeled an older man into the space next to us, and through the curtain I could hear his wife come in. She spoke lightly, with the easy intimacy of long-married couples, as if this hospital visit were just another part of any regular day together. ÂI heard a new joke,ÂŽ she said. ÂA skeleton walks into a bar. The bar-tenders asks, ÂWhat can I get you?Â The skeleton says, ÂA beer. And a mop.ÂÂŽ The husband chuckled, and his wife laughed with him. I thought of this life weÂre given, the hard parts and the grace, and I thought Â„ despite my tough-girl talk Â„ how nice it would be to share that with some-one.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 29 JUNE 4, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A31 French, Spanish & Italian: INTENSIVE Summer Language Program for Complete Beginners: June 2 August 30Give us 3 months, and weÂll get you talking!!!4 days a week AM class 9.30 Â… 11.30 or PM class 6.30 Â… 8.30 at Multilingual Society, 210 S. Olive Ave, WPB, 561.228.1688 or email@example.com. Challenge yourself! Registration ALREADY started. Each language group is limited to 8 LUCKY students who will be able to express themselves in another language by fallÂƒ But heÂs known and worked with Mr. Brown for years. A native of Georgia, Mr. Mangano attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where his roommate was an aspiring blues-rock guitarist named John Mayer. He played rhythm guitar in an early incarnation of Mr. MayerÂs band. When that group wasnÂt on the road, he found gigs in back in Georgia. ThatÂs when Mr. Mangano met and initially played with Brown. After about a year, Mangano left Mr. MayerÂs band and Mr. Brown and moved to Nashville to work in audio engineering. A few years later, Mr. Mangano and Mr. Brown reconnected. Mr. Mangano began mix-ing the Zac Brown Band albums and became director of Mr. BrownÂs South-ern Ground Studio. Surprisingly, Mr. Mangano didnÂt immediately say ÂyesÂ when Mr. Brown asked him to join the band. ÂYou would think that it would be an easy decision, a no-brainer,ÂŽ Mr. Man-gano said. ÂAt that time, I was the studio director for Southern Ground Studio. I wasnÂt touring. I was home every day. I could wake up and see my son every day. It would be hard to have that on the road, I thought. But I found out, I get to see my family more now. When youÂre working in the studio, you have some very long days and it can be every day. Now I get to see them three days a week.ÂŽ With Mr. Mangano now on board, the Zac Brown Band has become an eight-piece outfit, with John Driskelll Hop-kins, who had played bass, becoming a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, baritone guitar, ukulele, upright bass and banjo and continuing to sing. Mr. Mangano said he fit in easily with the group Â„ ÂI played with Zac in the early configuration of the band. It wasnÂt called the Zac Brown Band then. But we were playing some of the songs weÂre playing now. I guested on albums and knew them from the studioÂƒ. and IÂve been hearing those songs for years. I realized when I sat down to play them, I already knew them.ÂŽ Now, heÂs getting comfortable in a new environment Â„ the arenas, amphi-theaters and giant festival stages where the Zac Brown Band plays in front of 10,000 or more people a night. In joining the band, Mr. Mangano had to switch to playing live rather than in the studio. ÂThe mindsetÂs completely different,ÂŽ he said. ÂIn the studio, youÂre really focused on precision, accuracy and com-ing up with something new and original. You have to be in the right headspace to do that. Playing live, you have to have energy, you have to be animated and you have to have more of a fire.ÂŽ Mr. Mangano is getting used to performing on the redesigned stage the Zac Brown Band is bringing on tour. The stage may look different, but the song sets will be familiar to Brown fans. ÂWeÂll usually play a couple hours,ÂŽ Mr. Mangano said. ÂWeÂre going to take you on a ride. ItÂll be a wild ride, you just hang on. There will be new material, old material and some new cover songs. IÂm not going to tell you what they are. But I will tell you thereÂs no ÂStairway to Heaven.ÂÂŽ Asked if he had any favorite songs, Mr. Mangano pointed to a pair of tunes. ÂI love the ballads, actually. Playing a ballad like ÂHighway 20Â or ÂFree,Â the bass part isnÂt very hard. I play a lot of whole notes and I can listen to the lyr-ics and get lost in them. They have an impact every night.ÂŽ If the ballads are the favorites, what is the hardest song to play? ÂIÂd say ÂLet It Rain from ÂThe Grohl Sessions,ÂÂŽ Mr. Mangano said, mention-ing the recently released EP the group recorded with FooFighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. ÂItÂs technically involved and thereÂs a lot of notes in that. WeÂre all on the edge of our seats when weÂre playing that one. ItÂs like waterskiing behind a fast boat.ÂŽ But even the hard ones are fun to play, Mr. Mangano said. ÂIÂm really enjoying this,ÂŽ he said. ÂI fit in right away and itÂs only getting bet-ter. IÂm in a great band.ÂŽ A great band that plays more than country music.

Josephine Culbertson opened one diamond, and Oswald Jacoby made a weak jump-overcall of two hearts. Ely Culbertson bid three spades -a jump-shift indicating a powerful hand -and Sidney Lenz passed. Mrs. Culbertson then bid three notrump. This might have been the right bid in those days, but by modern standards four diamonds surely would be regarded as preferable for two reasons: First, hands with 6-4-2-1 distribution donÂt lend them-selves well to notrump play. Second, three notrump did not express the slam possibili-ties suggested by a hand with 17 high-card points facing a jump-shift. Nevertheless, several rounds of bidding later the Culbertsons found themselves in six diamonds. It was an unsound contract, of course, but it had a good chance of suc-ceeding -depending on the opening lead. Jacoby had no clear-cut lead. The Culbertsons had bid all four suits, and where to attack was by no means obvious. It seemed to him there was a good chance that North had the A-Q of spades for his three-spade bid, and that a later finesse would trap his king. So Jacoby decided to put Mrs. Culbertson under immediate pressure by leading the six of spades. He thought she might read the lead as a singleton and go up with the ace. JacobyÂs plan succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. Lenz won the trick with the ace and returned a spade, quickly nipping the slam in the bud. Had Jacoby led any other suit, Mrs. Culbertson would have scored all 13 tricks! Q

The weekend is a good time to re-establish relationships with people you havenÂt seen in a while. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal matters demand your attention as once-sta-ble situations begin to shift. Quick action to shore things up is called for in order to avoid more problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although your financial picture begins to brighten, ÂthriftÂŽ and ÂcautionÂŽ are still the watch-words for fiscally astute Leos and Leonas to live by. Expect news about a family matter. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Before you try to blame a colleague for a workplace problem, make sure you have the proof to back you up. Make some quiet inquiries on your own to try to solicit more information. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Trying to cheer up a depressed friend or downcast family member can be difficult. But keep at it, and your efforts should soon pay off in ways you might have never expected. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Taking a new look at an old and frequently recurring problem might lead you to consider making some surprising changes in the way you had been handling it up till now. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Despite what the naysayers might say, setting your sights on a new goal could be one of the smartest things the typically sagacious Sagittarian has done in a long time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Rebuilding an unraveling relationship wonÂt be easy. But you can do it, if you really want to. Just remember to keep the lines of communication open between the two of you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new friendship could develop into a close relationship. Meanwhile, reassure an old friend who might be feeling neglected that he or she is still an important part of your life. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might be feeling that youÂre still in over your head as you continue trying to adjust to your new situation. But the pres-sures ease by weekÂs end, giving you time to come up for air. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try using that Aries charm to warm up the usual set of workplace naysayers, and then back it up with a solid block of facts and figures to sell your idea to your colleagues. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While nothing can deter a determined Bovine from following a course you believe in, it helps to have some supporting data and statements by trusted colleagues to make your case. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for sensing the feelings of others. You might consider a career in some aspect of counseling. Q

The Yard House has a vast, appealing menu Â„ the mac and cheese, for example, is one of lifeÂs great decadent pleasures. But we keep coming back to this sandwich. Maybe itÂs the tender turkey. But weÂre guessing itÂs the subtle siren song of those jalapeos. Q Â„ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE For 12 years, Paul Hughes has been executive chef at The Bistro in Jupiter. Now, heÂs Chef de Cuisine Â„ a partner in the American-European restaurant, handling menus and staff. Staff is his biggest challenge, he says.ÂItÂs the hardest part of being a chef today. ItÂs very hard to find help for both the kitchen and floor,ÂŽ he said. ÂI think itÂs because itÂs so seasonal.ÂŽ ThereÂs a certain standard of service that is expected at restaurants where entrees are over $20, he said. ÂYou expect better service than say, DennyÂs. But oftentimes, the service is the same.ÂŽ With casual dining becoming more prevalent, there are fewer places to be trained for not only fine dining, but upscale restaurants that are a cut above others, he said. ThatÂs true in the kitchen as well.He notes that a lot of those who get into the hospitality business today have grown up watching chefs on television. They then go to culinary school expect-ing to come out working as a top chef. ThatÂs not how it works, he said. ÂI think theyÂll find it hard when they get in a job and find out how much work there really is to it. I feel really bad Â„ they spend all that money on culinary school Â„ itÂs very expensive Â„ and when they get out are qualified for an $8to $10-an-hour job.ÂŽ In England, his homeland, ÂYou go to culinary school in England while you already have a culinary job on the side. You also need to have two years of col-lege to get into culinary school. A lot of the hospitality colleges there require experience before you can get in.ÂŽ HeÂd tell a son to apprentice in a hotel, he said, where a kitchen provides a wealth of experience. ÂYou are trained at a number of jobs there, and get a feel for what the work is really like.ÂŽ Hughes gained a good deal of his experience working at the Savoy Hotel, a historic five-star luxury hotel in London. He misses the hotel job Â„ for the whole organization and many support staffs. ÂI loved the whole concept. In a hotel, if a light bulb goes out in the kitchen, you just pick up a phone and call maintenance. In the restaurant, you change it yourself. You do it all here.ÂŽ Eventually, after a number of restaurant jobs in England and the French Mediterranean, he joined the team in Dublin at RolyÂs, a large, popular Irish restaurant that opened a branch in Palm Beach Gardens several years ago. It was from there Mr. Hughes was transferred to Florida, where heÂs been since. He notes the differences in American versus European diners, choosing his words diplomatically. ÂAmericans like choices. And they know good food. Let me amend that Â„ the majority of people do, anyway.ÂŽ He observed that Americans Âknow how they like their foodsÂŽ and arenÂt afraid to ask for them to order; in Europe, the chefs are not asked to make substitu-tions as they are here. People in America are typically in a rush to dine, he said. ÂInstead of trying a dish, and giving some trust to the chef, theyÂll ask for changes when they order it. We wish theyÂd try the dish first, before sending it back Â„ if they must.ÂŽ Everything was made in-house, including the breads, which proved to be a sticky situation, he said. ÂEverything was different here. The water had chlorine in it Â„ and we were using live yeast. The water was killing our yeast,ÂŽ he said. Not only that, but it was warm water coming from the tap Â„ and temperature has a direct effect on bread. But an unlikely source came to help Â„ Jean-Pierre Leverrier of Palm BeachÂs Chez Jean-Pierre. ÂHe showed us how to adapt our recipes,ÂŽ he said. The Bistro turns out house-made rolls most of the year, Âunless we get slammed in season, and we buy them from a bak-ery,ÂŽ Mr. Hughes said. All the soups, dressings and desserts are made in-house as well. ThereÂs a focus on the freshest produce possible. ÂOur supplier gets it from sources as local as possible, but if itÂs not quality, he will get it from other parts of Florida or go outside the state. The emphasis is quality for us.ÂŽ Their specialties are Dover sole, and Kerry lamb pie. ÂItÂs chunks of lamb meat Â„ more like a hearty stew Â„ cooked in a pastry case. In the off-season, we have fresh soft-shell crabs. We prepare them with a light tempura batter and theyÂre lightly fried. TheyÂre served over house greens with our honey-mustard dress-ing.ÂŽ Their dining crowd is a loyal ÂmatureÂŽ one, Mr. Hughes said Â„ and even in summer, they like the traditional foods found on a Continental menu: the Dover sole, beef Wellington, or grouper en papillote with fennel, artichokes and red peppers, served on a turmeric rice pilaf. Housemade tomato or cream of chicken soup also are ÂkeepersÂŽ on the menu, too, he said. The chef does get to experiment, however, and dines at new restaurants to get ideas for new dishes. ÂI like to eat out and see what trends are going around. Then I think of how weÂll express it on our menu. ÂWeÂll put them on as specials. I might create one and Chef Christian will make one, and we see which one sells. ItÂs a bit disappointing when mine doesnÂt, so we both work hard at the friendly competi-tion.ÂŽ Someday, a restaurant all his own is in his plan. ÂIt would be here in Florida Â„ itÂs my home now. It would be small, like 70 seats. IÂd specialized in fresh, local produce Â„ a bistro style.ÂŽ Name: Paul Hughes Age: 43 Name of restaurant: The Bistro, 2133 S.
