The National Center for Educational Sta-tistics reports approximately 3 million students nationwide will graduate this school year from public high schools. What will come after is always the next, big shoe waiting to drop. The juncture is one of the most challenging that a young person makes in pursuit of their dreams. They must make a choice of direction and set out on a path lead-ing to the rest of their lives. Parents, teachers, relatives, and friends have anticipated for years this day of reckoning. They lecture inces-santly on the importance of topping off a high school diploma with a post-sec-ondary degree. It is not rocket science. Higher education is a fundamental building block toward achieving bold ambitions. Parents have been down this road. Their own educational experi-ences branded them and the opportuni-ties they have earned. Whatever their experience, they understand acquiring a college education is a bread-and-butter issue. While a degree is no guarantee of immunity from the economic challenges of a lifetime, it is a high card when dealt a hand full of uncertainties; and it can keep you in the game while others all around you fold. Even so, with the costs of a college education escalating, it is common to question whether a degree is really worth the price. There is, however, plenty of proof certain of its economic value. Pews most recent data indicates young, high school-only graduates earn about 62 percent of what their college-graduate peers earn. In 1965, they used to do better. The figure then was nearly 81 percent. You might ask why the gap has widened, especially now, when col-lege graduates are without jobs and underemployed. Pew says it is because the earnings are continuing to decline of young adults for whom a high school diploma is the end of the line. In other words, the steady decline in the earning power of high school-only graduates makes the earnings of college graduates look more robust by comparison. Of course, do not even consider dropping out of high school. Unless you get lucky or turn criminal, research says you will face a life of low wages and the lurking predations of negat ive outcomes. The bad news is that barriers are mounting to educational opportunity for students from low and middle-income households. The finances are daunting. Student debt now totals over $1 trillion, the highest form of consum-er loan debt, behind mortgages. Two-thirds of all college graduates shoulder some level of college debt, an average of $26,000 per individual student, says Fortune magazine. Tack on the interest at the rate approved last fall by Congress, and add an additional $715 million in interest payments that are in addition to repayment of loan principal. The uncomfortable truth, says U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, is that the federal government is making tons of money off the backs of parents and students struggling to sustain and man-age the financial commitment college now requires. Sen. Warren has announced legislation in the Senate intended to address the issue of college debt, including the capacity to refinance loans and pay for decreasing loan interest rates by increasing the tax rate paid by the wealthy, invoking the so-called Buffet rule. When interest rates drop, people can refinance their home, and they can refinance their business debt. Its regarded as a smart move for any con-sumer or business. But student bor-rowers are prohibited from doing that under most programs,Ž Sen. Warren told MassLive.com, This bill says were going to change that and let them refinance that down to current low rates.Ž The policy, if approved by Con-gress, could help ameliorate the grow-ing problem of college finance. This progression of students from preschool through higher education is one of the most persistent rhythms commonly shared throughout Ameri-can life by families and communities. As a society, we have given young peo-ple the hope as well as the expectation that college or a technical, post-sec-ondary education is an important next step following high school „ if they have the grades and the aspirations. For poor families and families of modest means, stitching together the financial resources is daunting. If there are multiple children in the family, deciding which child gets the opportu-nity can become an economic version of Sophies choice. More preschool through grade eight students will enter public school sys-tems this next school year than at any time in our nations history „so says the center for educational statistics. With the hopes, aspirations, and lives of so many young people at stake now and in the future, Sen. Warrens proposed legislation deserves serious consideration. Its one way to say well be there for you. Q „ Lilly is a native Floridian and past president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

No insurance companies, no private doctors, no competition „ just the government and the patient. The VA is an island of socialism in American health care. It generally provides adequate care „ to a limited universe of people and for only certain conditions „ but has long been plagued by scandal. It is perhaps the worst bureaucracy in the federal government. As with all such single-payer-type systems, the cost of the notionally free health care is in the ration-ing, in this case the wait times that have had desperately ill vets hung out to dry for months. The usual Obamacare excuses dont apply here. The existence of the VA isnt politically controversial. No one is trying to repeal it, or sabotageŽ it. What were see-ing is simply unaccountable bureaucracy in action. When the benchmark was created for VA facilities to get vets appointments with-in 14 days, meeting the goal was easy: All it took was logging appointments dishonestly to hide the wait time. This is how poor-ly performing government bureaucracies have met goals from time immemorial; its why, on a much more vast and monstrous scale, Soviet five-year plans were always such runaway successes on paper. The VA system worked for everyone but the patients „ and the whistle-blowers. The daughter-in-law of a Navy vet in Phoe-nix who died after never getting follow-up for his urgentŽ case was told, in lines that perfectly capture the spirit of socialized medicine: Its a seven-month waiting list. And youre gonna have to have patience.Ž But the bureaucracy acted with alacrity when its reporting scheme was at risk. In St. Louis, the former chief of psychiatry says he was put under administrative inves-tigation when he complained about wait lists. A whistle-blower who worked in Fort Collins, Colo., alleges that she and a col-league were transferred when they refused to hide wait times. So far, the VA affair is running the usual course of Obama administration scandals, with the requisite denial and lack of accountability. Then-VA Secretary Eric Shinseki referred to the incidents as isolated casesŽ (even though 26 facilities are now under investigation), and he has stepped down. The White House has reverted to its default position of maintaining that it doesnt know much about whats happen-ing in the vast government it always wants to make bigger. Spokesman Jay Carney seemed to suggest that the president first heard about the scandal on CNN. Of course, the problem with wait times and the trustworthiness of the VAs own reporting wasnt news. The Government Accountability Office has been warning of it since 2000. It headlined a December 2012 report, VA HEALTH CARE: Reli-ability of Reported Outpatient Medical Appointment Wait Times and Scheduling Oversight Need Improvement.Ž The VA obviously isnt going anywhere, but the scandal should be the occasion for making it more transparent and account-able, and giving vets more choices. As of now, it represents a case study in how a bureaucracy tends to its own interests, even at the expense of veterans relying on it for matters of life and death. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Maya Angelou, Still she rises You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may tread me in the very dirt But still, like dust, Ill rise.ŽThese are the words Maya Angelou wrote in her poem Still I Rise.Ž She died last week at 86 at her home in North Carolina. In remembering Maya Angelou, it is important to recall her commitment to the struggle for equality, not just for herself, or for women, or for African-Americans. She was committed to peace and justice for all. If growing up is painful for the Southern Black girl, being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat,Ž she wrote in the opening pages of her first breathtak-ing autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,Ž which chronicles her childhood to the age of 17. Born Marguerite Ann Johnson in St. Louis, at the age of 7 or 8, she was raped by her mothers boyfriend. He was killed shortly thereafter. As a result of the trauma, she remained virtually silent for five years, speaking only to her brother. She became a single mother at 17, and struggled to support her son as she worked a variety of jobs, eventually gaining success as a calypso singer. She heard Martin Luther King Jr. address the Harlem Writers Guild, of which she was a member, and joined with a fellow performer to produce and sing in Cabaret for FreedomŽ in Green-wich Village, to raise funds for Kings Southern Christian Leadership Confer-ence. By some accounts it was King, or the legendary activist and organizer Bayard Rustin, who asked her to take on a leadership role with the SCLC, which she accepted, becoming the groups Northern coordinator. Maya Angelou became a supporter of Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolu-tion. She met and fell in love with a South African civil-rights activist, and they moved to Cairo with her son. They stayed together for three years, but she stayed on in Africa, moving to Ghana, where she met Malcolm X. The two col-laborated on the pivotal political project that Malcolm X was developing, the Organization of Afro-American Unity. She returned to the U.S. to support the effort, but Malcolm X was assas-sinated shortly after her return. That tragedy, and the 1968 assassination of her friend Martin Luther King Jr., dev-astated Angelou. It was in 1969 that she was encouraged by the author James Baldwin, among others, to focus on her writing. Thus was born her first of seven autobiographies and the phenom-enal career for which Maya Angelou is known around the world. Reciting her poem On the Pulse of MorningŽ at President Bill Clintons first inaugural in 1993 catapulted her into the mainstream consciousness. While some schools and libraries still censor her work for unflinchingly depicting the life she led, it was through my hometown library, while in my early teens, that I first saw Maya Angelou. The library invited her to speak, and speak she did „ and danced, and sang, in a display of talent that made us laugh, cry and gasp as she moved her black and white audience of hundreds ... together. In commemorating Maya Angelou, none can speak as eloquently as she did herself about people who inspired her. At the Democratic National Conven-tion in Boston in 2004, she spoke of Fannie Lou Hamer, who attempted, 40 years earlier, to gain recognition for the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Angelou said: In the most private part of the heart of every American lives a burning desire to belong to a great country. To represent a noble-minded country where the mighty do not always crush the weak and the dream of democracy is not in the sole possession of the strong.Ž Maya Angelous tribute two years later, on the passing of her friend Coret-ta Scott King, could be said of Ange-lou herself: She was a quintessential African-American woman. Born in the small-town, repressive South. Born of flesh and destined to become iron. Born a cornflower and destined to become a steel magnolia.Ž In eulogizing actor and activist Ossie Davis at his 2005 memorial service in Harlems historic Riverside Church, Maya Angelous delivery was poetic as always. Her words of reflection on his death can serve as well as we note her passing: When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder. Lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests small things recoil into silence, their senses are eroded beyond fear. ... Great souls die, and our reality bound to them takes leave of us.Ž Maya Angelous eloquence, in her poetry, lives on:Out of the huts of historys shame I rise Up from a past thats rooted in pain I rise ...Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise.Ž 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.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY New Treatment for Breast Cancer Innovation Meets Surgery For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 561-548-4JFK (4535) .JFK Medical Center is the “rst in Palm Beach County and The Treasure Coast to oer a new state-of-the-art technology to treat Breast Cancer called Intraoperative Electron Radiation Therapy (IOERT). 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 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 radiation that is equivalent to the dose that is typically given over 6 weeks. Most eligible patients wont need to undergo any additional radiation therapy. For those patients who do need additional radiation, treatment is shortened by at least a week. Our team of physicians customizes the treatment plan for every patient. Reduce Breast Cancer Treatment from Six Weeks to One Day with IOERT PET TALESNational parks and petsThe national park trip is a classic family vacation, but does Fido belong there? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickVisiting a national park is a popular pastime, especially during sum-mer. We decided to beat the crowds last month by visiting Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks before the vacationing hordes overtook them. Two of our dogs stayed home with a pet sit-ter, but Harper „ our most experienced traveler „ came along for the ride. I dithered about bringing her until the very last minute. Dogs can enter national parks, but theyre not allowed on most trails or in buildings. National park lodges dont permit them, although some campgrounds and cabins make allowances for dogs. And forget about taking Buster to see Old Faithful spout or stroll along the boardwalk at Biscuit Basin checking out the steaming sulfur pools. Hell be canina non grata. I knew all this going in, but as it turned out, the offseason was a great time to bring a dog. The rules still applied, but with trails closed by snow and many lodges not yet open, we didnt feel as if we were missing out on any-thing by just driving through and see-ing the sights. The driving snowstorm at Old Faithful meant that Harper was more than happy to stay in the car while we waited for the geyser to blow, and, of course, we didnt have to worry that she would overheat. Harper also stayed in the car when we pulled over to photograph bison grazing or a couple of grizzlies grubbing for grubs after their long winter nap. But when it wasnt snowing, hailing, sleeting, raining or thundering „ all of which we encountered during our two days in Yellowstone „ Harper hopped out of the car at the turnouts and walked with us as we appreciated the stunning views. If a vista required a short hike, we took turns staying with her. At Grand Teton, it was sunnier if still cold, so Harper got more and longer walks at the turnouts and outside the visitor center. At one turnout, we put out some hides (scent) so she could practice her nose work. She found all three in record time „ just before it started hailing. We stayed outside the parks in Jackson, Wyoming, spending three days at a bare-bones motel and three at a luxury resort offering offseason rates. Meals included car picnics, brunch at dog-friendly Cafe Genevieve and coffee at Persephone Bakery, which had outdoor seating. Other times she snoozed in her crate in the hotel room. On the two occasions that we needed to go somewhere without her „ a hike with a local wildlife biologist and a visit to the National Museum of Wildlife Art „ Harper stayed at Happy Tails Pet Resort at Spring Creek Animal Hospital in Jackson, which I had called before our trip to make arrangements. On the way home, we made a bonus visit to Zion National Park in Utah, where we met other people with dogs in tow. Zion has the same pet rules as other national parks, but it has one trail that permits dogs. The paved Parus Trail follows the Virgin River for almost two miles and is an easy stroll. (Tip: Dont drive your dog through Zions hairpin roads if hes prone to car sickness.) For the best national park visit with dogs, make reservations at boarding kennels and pet-friendly hotels well beforehand, and keep your dogs vacci-nation record handy in case you decide to park him at a kennel for a day while you hike. Traveling by RV is another good option because your dog will have a safe place to stay if you go somewhere he cant. If you want to take him hiking, make your way to the nearest national forest, where dogs generally are permit-ted. Just dont forget your bear spray. Q To protect both pets and wildlife, keep your dog on a leash and follow the rules about where dogs are permitted. >> Kendra is a 6-year-old spayed Australian Shepherd.

Cats of all ages, colors and person-alities include Jill, a 5-year old gray-and-white domestic short-hair, who has logged more than 530 days at the shelter; JJ, a tiger-striped cat who is barely a year old; and 14-year old Eadie, with a tortoiseshell coat. To help find homes, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League offers numerous adop-tion programs, including its newest initia-tive: Meet Your Match. The program, introduced by the ASPCA, is the only known method that evaluates an animals behavior and interests and matches them to an adopters preferences. A cat is evaluated based on level of interest in play, exploring, talkingŽ and atten-tion needs and then assigned a feline-ality (a research-based assessment of a cats behavior). Cats are assigned color-coded personality types, such as love bug (pur-ple), sidekick (orange) and party animal (green). Individuals looking to adopt complete a one-page questionnaire about how they envision a cat fitting into their lifestyle. The results determine a color for the adopters personality, paired with suggestions for the ideal type of cat for the adopter. For instance, green adopters are most success-ful with cats who quickly adapt to new situations (like the party animal), purple adopters are perfect for cats who need time and encouragement to adjust to new surroundings (similar to a love bug) and orange adopters are a good fit with a com-panion cat (comparable to a sidekick). The league also offers affordable programs such as Senior to Senior Adoptions and Name Your Own Adoption Fee. Senior to Senior Adoptions is a free adoption program which allows adults 65 and older to adopt a pet five years and older. Name Your Own Pet Adoption Fee is a special program that allows adopters to name their own price to adopt any of the available cats. A huge cost-saving feature when adopting from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League: Every cat is already vaccinated, spayed/neutered and micro-chipped. The benefits to adopting a cat are vast and varied. Cats can ease loneliness, reduce stress, alleviate anxiety and improve your mood. Leading medical studies have linked cat ownership with a reduced risk for heart disease and greater longevity. But the best reason is to have a forever friend to share your l ove, laughter and joy. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Leagues adoption center is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional information, visit peggyadams.org or call 686-3663. The leagues mission is to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to furnish medical and other services for the care of companion animals; to care for, protect, and find quality homes for home-less and neglected animals; to advocate animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals, for the mutual benefit of both. In 2013, the league provided ser-vices to more than 30,000 animals. For more information, visit peggyadams. org. Q Mom Cat: 3, over 525 days at the shelter

A10 WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Floridians suffering from hurricane amnesia BY ATHENA PONUSHISaponushis@” oridaweekly.comKieran Bhatia first felt an affinity for meteorology as a sixth-grade student in Maryland, when he realized how much the colors he would see on a radar screen affected his sports schedule. His teacher always had radar on in the back of the classroom. Young Kieran found it fasci-nating how those colors would forecast his afternoons. Plus, he thought it was cool how everyone liked to talk about the weather. Now a Ph.D. student at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School, Mr. Bhatia has been drawn to the study of hurri-canes, though he has yet to live through one. He is not alone. Florida has had eight years of storms staying away and eight years of people moving in. Looking at the states longest hurricane drought in history „ well, the longest drought on record since 1851 „ coupled with the huge influx of new residents „ Florida boasts four cities on Forbes latest Top 20 list of Americas fastest growing cities „ Mr. Bhatia fears there may be a knowledge deficit in pub-lic preparedness. Again, he is not alone.Florida Power & Light executives say they cant sleep at night, tossing-and-turning over a complacent public. Emergency management directors worry theres a bit of communal amnesia,Ž as Floridas going on nine years with no hurricane landfalls. FPL estimates 40 percent of its customer base, or close to 4 million people, have never experienced a major hur-ricane. They are new customers. The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council reports a 50 percent turnover rate in demographics every eight years, meaning snowbirds who were weath-ered to tropical storms may have been replaced by tropical tenderfoots. And the Palm Beach County Division of Emer-gency Management says statistics show 90 percent of people dont even know if they live in a storm-surge evacuation zone. This new blood and lapse of memory motivated Mr. Bhatia to gather his Ph.D. buddies and hit the ground running, forming a Canes on CanesŽ weather team with a calling to inform communi-ties: Heres what scientists want you to know when you see what you see on TV.Ž People look at the graphics they see on TV with more of a skeptical eye than an informed eye,Ž Mr. Bhatia says. They dont know how worried they should be.Ž One of the slides in the Canes on CanesŽ presentation carries the headline, With great weather comes great respon-sibility,Ž putting a youthful, Spider-Man spin on the subject matter. The ensuing slide shows the paths of the 58 hurri-canes that have passed through South Florida since 1851, including 31 major storms; the density of color makes it look like the peninsula has been hit by a Pink Floyd laser light show. Through the fresh presentation, the students hope to impart messages like: Q A larger storm does not mean a stronger storm, as Mr. Bhatia points out, Hurricane Andrew was a very small storm but one of the strongest hurri-canes to make landfall in the U.S.Ž Q Theres more to the story than the category. Only one mile per hour separates a Category 1 from a Category 2. Only one mile per hour separates a Category 3 from a Category 4. Mr. Bhatia says, Categories, yes, they are important and they are scientifically-grounded, but at the same time, its just a peak wind speed, its not something we want some-one at home to look at and say, OK, Im basing all my decisions on if its a Cat-egory 1 versus a Category 3.Ž Q Theres more to the storm than the fastest observed wind speed. Remember the water. Mr. Bhatia says the flooding due to storm surge is a silent killer; it does not receive a lot of attention but statistically, it is the No. 1 cause of deaths in hurricanes. A lot of people take a sigh of relief when August passes and theres no hur-ricane, but the peak for South Florida is October,Ž Mr. Bhatia says. I think peo-ple need to realize that when theyre getting ready for Halloween, theyre also getting ready for the peak of hur-ricane season.Ž The most enlightening part of the presentation may be the explanation sur-rounding the cone of uncertainty,Ž the storm projection that carries a name as ominous-sounding as some Princess BrideŽ character. Here are the takeaway points of the cone: Q Scientists design the cone based on what happened two out of three times in the past five years, so one out of three times, scientists expect the storms track to go outside the cone. Q Scientists will use the same forecast cone all season long, no matter the storm. Uncertainty may be higher in some storms than others, but all season through, youll see the same cookie-cutter cone on TV. Q The cone shows the probable path of the center of the storm, not impact. A storm is much larger than the center of its track. Impact can extend far beyond the cone, even if the forecast track is correct. Just because youre not in the cone, you have to realize that one out of three times, your storm center is forecast to go outside of your cone,Ž Mr. Bhatia says. Everyone should be prepared, not just the cone-destined. On the flip side, he adds, If two out of three times the centers going to come over you, that should be enough to start preparing, right?Ž Asked if the science is saying Floridas due, since the states months away from being nine years hurricane-free, Mr. Bha-tia says, The science is telling us that South Florida is always due. Historically, one out of every three years well have a hurricane that affects South Florida, so I think every year, you should be expect-ing a hurricane to come ƒ Floridas very unique in that we have great weather but it comes with a price ƒ Id say were always due, not to let your guard down because of recent trends, for all we know, 2014-2015 could be just like 2004-2005.Ž FPL President Eric Silagy punctuates this not a question of if, but whenŽ view. We are going to be hit by a storm at some point and thats why we all need to prepare as if its going to be this season,Ž he says. In the years since Floridas last hurricane, Mr. Silagy says FPL has prepared by investing $1.4 billion to harden its system; inspecting all power poles (over a million); inspecting more than 15,000 miles of line (Mr. Silagy lends perspective by saying thats the equiva-lent of going from Florida to California round-trip twice); clearing vegetation Dearth of storms, and tropical tenderfoots, worry first responders and emergency managers, who say we aren’t prepared for season.

www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 A11 from over 100,000 miles of line, (which Mr. Silagy equates to going around the world four times), all thanks to the time Mother Nature has given them. Mr. Silagy prays people dont take this time for granted. He encourages everyone to prepare. Thats what we do here at FPL,Ž he says. Every day that were not actually responding to a storm, we are preparing for a storm.Ž Mr. Silagy says this at FPLs Physical Distribution Center and Category 5 Command Center in Riviera Beach during the utilitys week-long, simulated-storm drill. Every year, FPL makes up a fictional, virtual hurricane so employ-ees can hone their craft at post-storm power restoration. This year virtual Hur-ricane Echo strengthened to a Category 3, making landfall in Highland Beach. Storm surge swelled up to nine feet in Palm Beach. Six to 12 inches of rain fell throughout the state. Five tornadoes spun off the storm. The hurricane exited near Jacksonville. We dont drill to understand what we do well,Ž Mr. Silagy says. We really drill to understand where we can do bet-ter, where there are gaps, where we can improve.Ž Wanting employees to be hit by the element of surprise, much like a real storm, FPL meteorologists threw make-believe curveballs at them, like the flood-ing of a substation, or loss of a gas line, all on day one. In early May, the media invited on day five of the drill, Mr. Silagy stands next to a general in the Florida National Guard. Mr. Silagy wears a blue shirt and black loafers. The general wears camouflage and black boots. FPLs signature lightning strike stitched over Mr. Silagys heart. The words U.S. Air ForceŽ stitched over the generals heart. Mr. Silagy announces a uniqueŽ partnership with the Florida National Guard, where a mid-level officer will be embed-ded for six months with FPLs emergen-cy preparedness unit, allowing the two entities to develop a closer relationship before an event occurs, so they can react better together when it does occur. You cant do a storm restoration without logistics, and I would argue theres probably no better entity in the world than the U.S. military on handling logistics,Ž Mr. Silagy says. And as good as we think we are at FPL with logistics, Im looking forward to learning some lessons.Ž Taking the mike, Brigadier Gen. James Eifert adds, Better integration with our fellow first responders is no longer a buzzword or a catchphrase, its an imper-ative. Restoring power to the citizens of Florida is more than just a metric, its about saving lives. ƒ We need to better understand the vulnerabilities of our power grid, our water supply ƒ so we can better serve our citizenry.Ž Bill Johnson, director of the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management, does not want people to approach storm season solely relying on government. We are not the safety net,Ž he says. They need to be prepared. ƒ Weve got our plans in place. Its impor-tant our citizens have their plans in place, as well.Ž This season the county is pushing a Know Your ZoneŽ campaign. Mr. John-son describes the campaign as aggres-sive and comprehen-sive. He says their message has not changed, but they have reshaped it, simplified it to target a broader audience. The message is four-fold: Make a plan. Build a kit. Be informed. Get involved.Ž Emergency management even revamped their website, shortening their web address to the memorable www.readyPBC.org. And the department added the smartphone app DART, short for Disaster Awareness & Recovery Tool. We want to target millennials, the younger generation, and allow them to push the message up to our elderly popu-lation,Ž Mr. Johnson says. Addressing storm surge, Mr. Johnson shares the county mantra: Hide from the wind. Run from the water.Ž At maxi-mum, 250,000 people would have to evacuate Palm Beach County in the event of a Category 5 storm, he says. Concerned that the nervousness people used to attach to the start of hurri-cane season may have drifted apart like clouds in the sky, Mr. Johnson says he cannot emphasize enough, Prepared-ness is the key.Ž Q Ten years after the big call — a look back BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” oridaweekly.comThursday, Aug. 12, 2004: a pleasant summer morning and a nice afternoon, with the wind carrying a sweet sea-scent many miles inland, accompanied by the edges of an endless gray sky. It was exciting, at first, because what lay just beyond the western horizon was supposed to miss „ this looming storm named Charley that looked like an evil explosion, on television radar. Most people on the Gulf Coast still felt excited the next morning, too, a day that fell almost comically on Friday the 13th. Although the sky grew deeply, ominously gray, they trusted both the National Hurricane Center and their local meteorologists, who said that they were not on Hurricane Charleys target map. But that was wrong.Starting just before 11 a.m., that brutal day became the hallmark legacy of three regional meteorologists, who recognized nearly simultaneously that the southwest coast was about to get hammered: Jim Farrell, chief meteorolo-gist at WINK-TV, and Jim Reif, the chief meteorologist at ABC7, along with Rob-ert Van Winkle, the chief meteorologist at NBC2. Wayne Sallade, Charlotte Countys director of the Office of Emergency Management (the EMO), calls it Jim Reifs bright shining moment. He had a lot of bright shining moments, but this was the brightest.Ž Mr. Reif died April 7 at 61, following a bicycle accident in Fort Myers. But on that infamous morning, and together with Mr. Van Winkle and the NBC2 team, he decided that an 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center was going to be wrong „ or if not wrong, not right enough. They recognized that the intense and fast-moving storm had experienced a wobble,Ž and would likely turn right (east) toward the barrier islands of Lee and Charlotte counties, and the heavy population centers nearby. It was a maverick moment. No meteorologist likes to differ on air from the scientists of the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. But they did it anyway. Even though the National Hurricane Center has not declared this a major hurricane,Ž Mr. Reif announced, this is in fact a major hurricane, and we are growing more and more concerned that this is going to be a major impact to us in Southwest Florida.Ž And then he nailed it, on the air: You need to take protective measures now, to protect your life and the lives of your loved ones.Ž Those warnings, some two hours ahead of the NHCs confirmation that Southwest Floridas meteorolo-gists were right, not only saved lives (about 15 deaths ultimately occurred), but it saved many people from having to endure a lot more suf-fering than they did.How it happened Friday morningBeginning at 8 a.m., the NHC issued a standard, data-based analysis and pre-diction of the dangerous storm. That was based on information delivered by radar and the hurricane hunter crews that fly their aircraft into the storm. The NHC also issued an intermediate advisory at 11 a.m., something it didnt used to do frequently but offers regularly in a program called NOW-casting, when a storm becomes an imminent threat, explains Mr. Sallade. In that advisory, which turned out to be off the mark, the NHC noted that Hurricane Charley was still tracking north of the region, with winds blowing as much as 150 miles per hour. The men and women at the NHC were doing their job exactly as they should have, says Mr. Sallade. The 11 a.m. advisory was based on 8 a.m. data. They need three hours to get that stuff out. They were reporting what they saw,Ž he explains. At the Hurricane Center, theyre scientists. Theyre not media people.Ž Meanwhile back in the studio at NBC-2, Jim Reif „ both a scientist and a media person „ was doing his job, too, along with everybody else. Theyd been up all night, cool, calm and collected, watching a bullet that hadnt changed course. But suddenly at about midmorning they were sweating, because they realized that everyone from the Caloosahatchee River north was in the crosshairs of the violent storm. What Jim and Robert were doing,Ž says Mr. Sallade, was tracking Charley from what the current position showedŽ „ very nearly in real time. They were showing where the aircraft said the center of circulation was, in relation to the advisoryŽ „ which in part was where the aircraft said it was three hours earlier. As soon as the two meteorologists noticed the wobble, they knew they were going to have to break with the When Hurricane Charley hit Friday, Aug. 13, 2004, meteorologists made the decision to deviate from the National Weather Service. It probably saved a lot of lives.

A14 WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster prepared-ness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. The Hurricane Pet Friendly Shelter operated by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control can hold 300 people and up to 700 animals. dogs, cats, small pocket pets only. All animals, with the exception of reptiles, are welcome at the center. People should bring cages and other items for their animals. Current rabies vaccina-tion, pet wearing a current license tag, and recent application of flea/tick medi-cine is required. People need to pre-register their pets with Animal Care and Control before heading over to the shelter. To register for the pet shelter, call Animal Care and Control at 233-1266 or register online at www.pbcgov.com/pubsafety/animal. Residents pre-registered with the special needs shelter may pre-register their pets to stay at the Pet Friendly Shelter. The shelter is located at the West Boynton Beach Park and Recreation Center only during activation. Other pet-friendly shelters are available across the Treasure Coast and in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. To prepare their pets for hur-ricane season, owners should attend to the following:Q Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Q Identification : Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone num-ber. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Ser-vices), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and own-ers can update the company as to their whereabouts, Q Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying box.) Q Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Q Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kitQ Leash and secure collar Q Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Q Water for one week Q Manual can opener Q Bowls for food and water Q Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size Q Bedding (blanket or towels) Q Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Q Pets regular medications QToys, chewies and other stress relieversQ County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged) Q Proof of vaccinations Q Photo of pet Q Pet first-aid kit Q Grooming items Web sitesQ Pbcgov.com/publicsafety / animalcare/hurricane.htm: For Palm Beach County information.

Agencies and organizations offer emergency helpHindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the east coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season „ the last major hurricane to affect the Palm Beach County area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. But this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, weve compiled some of the contact information for the bigŽ organizations that can serve as a start-ing place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs. Q What’s in a name?

At rst, the lists consisted of only female names; since 1979, the names alternate between male and female. There are six lists that con-tinue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so devastating that its name is retired. BridgesTravel across the area’s bridges becomes unsafe once winds reach gale force, or in excess of 34 mph. Even if physi-cal barricades are not present, drivers should exercise com-mon sense when pre-storm travels involve crossing bridges. Evacuation orders for barrier islands will be issued well in advance of a storm, and those affected should promptly heed such orders, before travel across bridges becomes unsafe and roads are closed off.

Botox and facial fillers are safe and predictable methods to treat facial wrinkles that have been used in the United States for over a decade. There is always controversy regarding the proper age to begin using either treatment. A recent survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Sur-gery showed that the use of these cosmetic treatments increased by more than 50% for patients 30 years old or younger between 2012 and 2013. I feel the cut-off of age 30 is low and that the age when wrinkles begin to form is closer to 35. Botox is usually used to smoothen the forehead, crow’s feet area and vertical lines between your eyebrows. Fillers are used in the cheeks, lines between the nose and lips, lines extending down from your lips and in the lips themselves. Regular use of Botox prevents repeated skin folding which eventu-ally leads to permanent changes to the skin itself. Fillers contribute to development of collagen which can have long term anti-wrin-kle effects even after the filler is reabsorbed. Ultimately, my goal is to restore a younger appearance and avoid altering the way you look. The decision of when is the right time to start any cosmetic treatments is up to you. If lines and wrinkles are becoming more obvi-ous than a few years ago, then the time is now. To see if Botox or facial fillers are right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.Dr. Michael Lipan’s interests are focused on facial plastic surgery, having completed a fellowship at Stanford University, a position accredited by the America Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

I have severe anxi-ety every time I think about it. What can I do? Answer: If you hate your smile and hate the dentist at the same time, then sedation dentistry is your ticket to a beautiful healthy smile and oral health. Sedation dentistry is the administration of a sedative medication to produce a state of calmness, drowsiness, or relaxation so you won’t experience stress during treatment. The degree of your anxiety will determine the type of sedation you receive. If you desire something to take the edge off, oral sedation may be something you may consider. Many dentists offer this level of sedation. It involves taking 1 or 2 sedative pills before treatment which will simply relax you. If you are a true dental-phobe then IV sedation is what you need. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified IV Sedation Dentist and involves administering medication intravenously. The medications can be slowly adjusted, or titrated to achieve and maintain a deeper state of sedation so that you can undergo procedures with abso-lutely no memory whatsoever. Analgesics or pain killers can also be administered through the IV line, so you should experience abso-lutely no discomfort. Local anesthetic is still always administered to keep the area numb, but you won’t know or feel you had any injections. The administration of IV medica-tions for your appointment will allow you to undergo more extensive dental procedures such as cosmetic smile makeovers, dental implant surgery, dental reconstruction or cos-metic crowns without the stress or memoryof the procedures.

Save enough dollars and, well, get what you have always wanted, like that big screen television, cool car or vacation home. It may take some time for the big ticket items, but if you work hard and start saving early, you could achieve your goal. Staying healthy can work the same way. By doing the little things, like wearing sunscreen or going for a walk, you can live a longer, healthier life. Good lifestyle habits can pay high dividends for men in the long run. In honor of Mens Health Month in June and with National Mens Health Week right around the corner (June 9-15), here are a few tips to help you live healthy: Q Start moving. Regular exercise can help prevent and control both high blood pressure and diabetes, and maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physi-cal activity on most, if not all, days of the week. You can stay fit with a number of different activities, from jogging and swimming, to gardening and dancing. Q Eat right. Take extra helpings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains while passing on the deep-fried fast foods, bakery products, and packaged snack items. Limit saturated fat by choosing fish and poultry. Q Dont smoke. Smoking is associated with heart disease, cancer and lung disease. Q Drink responsibly. Moderate drinking of no more than two drinks per day for men is OK, but dont overdo it. Q Stay safe. Wear the proper protective gear when participating in sports and fasten your seat belt when riding in or driving a car. Q Learn about your familys health history. Certain health conditions can be passed on from one generation to the next. When several family mem-bers have heart disease, diabetes or some cancers, you may be at increased risk for that health problem as well. Q Get regular checkups. Check with your doctor about when you need to have a prostate exam, colonoscopy or other preventive health screening. Some diseases and conditions do not cause symptoms, so it is important to get screened before signs appear. Q Check your numbers. Monitoring blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index can help catch underlying health problems early. Q Get vaccinated. Immunity from some vaccinations can fade over time and make adults more susceptible to diseases. Q Stay balanced. Try to equalize the stress of professional and personal obligations with relaxing activities that you enjoy. Be sure to get enough sleep. Q Go outside. Get 15 to 20 minutes of sunlight exposure daily for a suf-ficient amount of vitamin D. But dont overdo it. Too much exposure to the sun can increase the risk for skin can-cer. See a penny, pick it up and all day long youll have good luck. By making smart lifestyle choices every day, you can fill up your piggy bank and stay healthy well into your golden years.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly. com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY X n>œ'i,ˆ`iU Flagler feels like the highway.” The French bistro at 101 Clematis St. faces the Waterfront and City Com-mons area, which looks out across five lanes traveled by an estimated 10,000 vehicles daily. “There’s a clear disconnect between the amount of drivers on that street and the amount of lanes on that street,” Mr. Speck said, noting three lanes can accommodate twice the amount of traffic Flagler Drive cur-rently gets. The real estate left over from the removal of two lanes should turn into par-allel parking on the west — “That’s a couple hundred free parking spaces” — and a bicycle path to the east, he said. “All of this can be accomplished for the price of paint,” Mr. Speck told city commissioners. “There’s no need to build anything.” The three-part assessment of walkability in West Palm Beach’s down-town district addressed such issues as a “safe walk,” a “comfortable and interesting walk” and a “useful walk.” “Downtown West Palm Beach is well-ahead of the typical American city,” Mr. Speck said. “My job is to tell you how to do better.” The city can improve its “safe walk” by reducing roadway widths to 10 feet, from 12, effectively making motorists drive slower. “People go faster on wider streets,” Mr. Speck said. “We know that if there’s lower speeds, fewer people are injured or killed.” Dixie Highway and Olive Avenue could up the ante on pedestrian safety by becoming two-way streets and employ-ing stop signs instead of traffic signals. “Two-way streets create more opportunity for conflict, which sounds bad, but it’s the opportunity for con-flict that makes motor-ists slow down,” Mr. Speck said. The stop-sign safety factor outweighs that of the traffic signal because driv-ers deliberately try to beat the red. “I speed up at yellow lights,” the SUV owner admitted. “The greatest and deadliest failure of the traffic-engineering profession has been their refusal to admit that design impacts behavior.” Something as simple as plant-ing foliage on the sidewalk can make the city’s “comfortable and interest-ing walk” better, as trees of the deciduous variety manifest the cooling power of eight, room-size air-conditioners running full time, Mr. Speck said. “Stop planting palms,” he joked during the presentation, to supportive applause. The arrival of All Aboard Florida in West Palm Beach threatens the “comfortable and interest-ing walk” because it calls for the construction of a train station along the FEC Railroad track between Datura and Evernia streets. The pedestrianunfriendly barrier that will speed passengers to Orlando and Miami remains one of Raphael Clemente’s biggest concerns. “The value of a downtown space is that you don’t have to drive,” said Mr. Clemente, executive director of the Downtown Development Authority. “Once you’re here, you should be able to comfortably and conveniently walk to and from any des-tination. You should be able to leave your car behind.” He said the Downtown Development Authority, in conjunction with the city and the Community Redevelopment Agency, reached out to Speck to get advice on how to deal with the ensu-ing train station one block away from Clematis Street, as well as the planned hotel next to the Palm Beach County Convention Center. “If we’re going to invest money in improving the public space, we should get the best possible guidance that we can get,” Mr. Clemente said. “Get-ting these things right now before these developments come out of the ground…it’s a great move to make.” He agreed with Mr. Speck’s “useful walk” recommendation of offering vacant parking spaces in city-owned garages to residential developers. “Hundreds of millions of dollars are being invested in the downtown area — apartment buildings, residential properties,” Mr. Clemente said. By working with the private sector, the city can help facilitate housing developments’ parking requirements and garner revenue from it. “The beauty of it is that many of the recommendations can be accom-plished without any infrastructure investment,” Mr. Clemente said. When the city receives a documented copy of Mr. Speck’s report, the dis-cussion on walkability will continue. “I think once we get the report, we’ll have more than $50,000 worth of information,” Mr. Clemente said. “Any place can improve. Any place that is growing as fast as we are can certainly do better.” Q WALKFrom page 1 Q SPECK

Collectors buy a standard one-sheet movie poster, 27 by 41 inches, or a three-sheet, 40 by 81 inches, or a half-sheet, 22 by 28 inches, or lobby cards that usually are 11 by 14 inches. Sometimes a full set of lobby cards — seven scene cards and one title card — is found. There also are cardboard window cards, autographs, promotional items, jewelry, T-shirts, toys and games, all related to a movie. A lucky find for movie buffs this year was a jigsaw puzzle made with a pho-tograph of Susan Hayward (1917-1975), a movie star and leading lady from 1937 to 1972. While there are many movie-star paper dolls, there are very few jigsaw puzzles. Q : My grandmother was married in 1899 and received a curvy birch bed-room dresser and chest as a gift. Both pieces are mounted with a beveled mirror in a carved wooden frame. My mother wasn’t fond of the furniture, but she kept it and now we’re using it because we can tell its quality is a lot better than anything else we own. The label on the back of each piece says “Robert Mitchell Furniture Co., Cincinnati, Ohio.” Please tell us about the manufacturer and the furniture’s value. A: Robert Mitchell was an Irish immigrant who partnered with Frederick Rammelsberg to open a furniture-making business in Cincinnati in the 1830s or ’40s. Mitchell & Rammelsberg incorporated in 1867. In 1881, after Rammelsberg had died, the corporate name was changed to Robert Mitchell Furniture Co. It remained in business until about 1940. Any Victorian-era furniture made by Mitchell & Ram-melsberg or Robert Mitchell Furniture Co. is high-quality and prized by col-lectors. Q: My 85-year-old mother-in-law gave my wife and me a six-sided large glass Planters Peanuts jar she has had for years. She told us her aunt worked in a bar a long time ago and the jar was on the counter for patrons to reach in and grab peanuts. There are fired-on yellow Mr. Peanut images around the outside of the jar, which has its origi-nal glass lid with a peanut finial. Are these old jars collectible? A: Planters Peanuts have been around since 1906, and Mr. Peanut became the company’s logo in 1916. Jars like yours have been made in many shapes and styles since then, but yours probably is the six-sided jar made in 1936. If your jar is in excellent condition, it could be worth $50 to $100. Advertising collectors love Mr. Peanut. Q: I’m looking for information about my black amethyst vase. Can you help? A: Black amethyst glass looks black until it’s held to the light. Then it looks dark but not black. It has been made in many factories since 1860, so unless the piece has a maker’s mark, it’s impossible to tell who made it. Look for similar shapes online or in books about 19thand 20th-century glass. Q: I was given several Lladro figurines and would like to find out what they’re worth and the best way to sell them, if I choose to. A: Juan, Jose and Vicente Lladro started making Lladro porcelain in Almacera, Spain, in 1951. The company moved to Tabernes Blanques in 1958 and is still working. Figurines are made in both limited and unlimited editions, and a figurine may come in different colors and with different fin-ishes. Most have a glossy glaze, some have a matte finish and some were made with Gres finish, a brightly-colored satiny finish introduced in 1970. Lladro figurines can be hard to sell. Price depends on condition, glaze and rarity. You can check online to see what they are currently selling for, but most unlimited edition figurines sell for $50 to $150. Tip: Pewter looks best when displayed against a blue background. Sil-ver is most attractive against a red background. Q — Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The specialty grocery has its roots in North Carolina, where the first store opened in 1982. The stores are known for their selections of coffee, wine, fresh flowers, baked goods, condiments and meats, all presented in an Old World market setting. The 25,000-square-foot store has been popular with shoppers in Jupiter, Mr. Tegeler said. Its been excellent. Everybody seems to really, really enjoy coming to the store,Ž he said. Part of that is personalized service. During visits to other Fresh Market locations, employees have offered sam-ples, recipes and cooking advice. The Fresh Markets inviting atmosphere is reminiscent of European mar-kets. Our customers enjoy shopping in an environment that appeals to all the senses,Ž Craig Carlock, the companys president and CEO, said in a statement. The open concept of the store means that shoppers will smell the aromas of coffee brewing and bread baking, all to a soundtrack of classical music. The manager, Mr. Tegeler, has worked at other Fresh Market locations, includ-ing Aventura, Wellington and Stuart. Im a meat c utter by trad e, so theres really nothing I cant do,Ž he said, citing a 30-year career that began at Steves Supermarket in Baltimore. Steves no longer exists „ that space is now home to CVS, Mr. Tegeler said. But Fresh Market shows no sign of flagging. The company has 155 stores in 26 states; the Jupiter location is its 37th store in Florida. Were just looking for markets where people enjoy high-quality food and ser-vice,Ž Mr. Tegeler said. He loves having a new building.Its extremely exciting. Weve got a beautiful facility. Stuart is a lot smaller location, but were still able to maintain that intimate setting,Ž he said of his store, which employs about 100 people. Stuart and Wellington are Fresh Markets two nearest locations, and Mr. Tegeler said the new store is drawing customers from as far away as Tequesta and Hobe Sound. Weve got people coming up from PGA,Ž he said. Shoppers in Palm Beach Gardens can choose from Carmines or Josephs Classic Market „ and Trader Joes is scheduled to open this fall. That begs the question: Why is Fresh Market a destination for shoppers? I just think that we bring a distinctive concept that rarely competes with other retailers,Ž Mr. Tegeler said. We have the classical music and the aromas from the bakery.Ž Q The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach C ounty announced that Jonathan Chane and Lauren Stuhmer have been recog-nized with the 2014 Robert S. & Ceil N. Levy Young Leader-ship Award. Jonathan Chane is a litigation attorney at Greenberg Traurig in West Palm Beach.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A29 After discovering the joys of the online matchmaking site How About We,Ž I told my friend Josh he should join. I dont know,Ž he said over dinner. Ive tried online dating before.Ž But this is different,Ž I said. Trust me.Ž The next time I saw him, we met at his apartment. Josh pulled out his lap-top but still seemed unconvinced. This will change your life,Ž I assured him. At my urging, he filled out the initial profile „ a few simple questions „ and uploaded several photos, then we jumped into the best part of How About We: weeding through potential dates. On this particular site, singles suggest something fun to do, such as, How about we go to the park?Ž or How about we meet for cocktails?Ž and other singles decide whether theyre intrigued. The sites format combines the quick thumbs-up or thumbs-down fun of Tinder with the more serious relationship intentions of places like eHarmony or OKCupid. I sat beside Josh on the couch as he scrolled through the single women. I flinched each time he passed one over. Wait a minute,Ž I said. Shes pretty.ŽHer?Ž He paused, considering. No.ŽHe continued on. No, no, no, no, no.Ž What about her?Ž I asked.Too tall.ŽAnd her?ŽToo old.ŽI thought I might cry. How can any woman expect to find love when men are so damn picky? When Josh finally found someone who had potential, I felt more per-plexed than ever. That one?Ž I said.Oh, yes,Ž he nodded emphatically. Shes beautiful.Ž He went down the list of her appealing attributes „ qualities I could see and recognize but that I would never have considered special. When I left Joshs apartment that night, he seemed brighter and more optimistic. For the first time since his breakup, he had dating options. As for me, I felt dismal. Id peered into the male brain and it was terrify-ing. For a time, the experience left me sour on the opposite sex. But then I met a girl friend for brunch not much later, and we got to talking about the men weve loved. With her, she admitted, they always had a certain boyishness, a brashness and a daredevil charm. I laughed and shook my head. None of that appeals to me,Ž I said.I know,Ž my friend said with a sheepish smile. We all have our pathologies.Ž I thought back to the night in Joshs apartment and the women on How About We that he had selected. I remembered something I read once about the trick to creating a good online dating profile. Instead of striv-ing to be universally attractive, the article said, we should focus on being honest about who we are „ quirks and all. The goal is not to lure in everyone, just someone who likes our particular features. It occurred to me that the session with Josh was actually liberating. What a relief to know that different men find different women appealing, and how uplifting to realize that we dont have to be the most beautiful woman in the world „ just one who is beau-tiful through her own uniqueness.

A30 WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY at B.B. Kings Restaurant & Blues Club in West Palm Beach. Certainly if theres one thing Keb Mo knows, its what a blues song sounds like. And The ReflectionŽ was not a blues album. Instead, it was an opportunity for Keb Mo, also known as Kevin Moore, to explore a side of his music that had only surfaced here and there before „ his taste for sleek R&B and soul. To say that wasnt what many Keb Mo fans expected „ or wanted „ would be stating the obvious. Even going into The ReflectionŽ project, Mr. Moore anticipated hed have to deal with some mixed reaction. I knew in making a record like that, there were going to be some people going Whats This?! Ž he said. But you know, I make the records for me so that Im clearly satisfied. I cant just cater to my audience to the point that I throw myself under the creative bus.Ž Mr. Moore shouldnt have to deal with any of that sort of confusion with his new album, BLUESAmericana,Ž which was released on April 22. Its back on the Keb Mo „ the Keb Mo that everybody knows, even though The Reflection is a Keb Mo path, too,Ž he said. But this one is more like the path that everyone knows.Ž The new album (which has been preceded by a five-song EP that includes three tracks that arent on the full album), is largely acoustic blues, but has some other feels as well. Theres still some very acoustic stuff on it. But it kind of started rocking a little bit, too,Ž Mr. Moore said. The acoustic guitar leads, the acoustic leads on everything, it does lead, because I started each track with an acous-tic instrument. Like the way I cut the record, I decided on my tempo, and I got my tempo right. Then I laid down a vocal with my guitar.Ž With its mix of acoustic-centric blues and some more up-tempo material, the new album figures to line up with the sound that first earned Mr. Moore rec-ognition and praise when he came on the national scene with his 1994 self-titled debut album. That CD earned strong reviews for its back-to-basics, largely solo acoustic blues sound and sharply crafted tunes. But with his return to blues on the horizon, fans wont hear the slick R&B of The ReflectionŽ in the shows Moore is playing now as he begins a busy stretch of touring. In fact, hes stepping back from the full-band format of recent tours and per-forming with only one other musician „ multi-instrumentalist Tom Shinness. We had a six-piece for awhile,Ž Mr. Moore said. That was really a lot of fun. It got to be a heavy load. I work better in a small ensemble because I need the room to express what Im doing.

A32 A&E WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Ask the Dating Expert Advertisement Jodi MeyerMatchmakerSNM LOOKING FOR LOVEQuestion: I am a 52 year old male. I am a professional, nice looking, in shape, but I have never been mar-ried and have no children. There seems to be such a stigma attached to my status, that when I start dat-ing someone, they question me as if I was a leper? I dont feel bad about the choices that I have made in my life and truly want to settle down now and “ nd someone spe-cial. What has your experience been in matching single and never been married?Answer: Over the years I have helped a lot of busy professionals who have come to Florida Singles later in life because they had spent the earlier part of their life focus-ing on their career. Everyones life needs balance and its great to work and be successful, but if you never have any time to enjoy it or anyone to enjoy it with, what good is it all? Stop procrastinating because life is passing you by. There is no greater gift in life than to have a loved one by your side to enjoy lifes accom-plishments. With regards to the stig-ma, tell them dont fault me because I did not “ nd the right person to marry and I wont fault you because you chose the wrong one!!4440 PGA Blvd #407 Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 561.318.7789 JVYULKILLM‹WHZ[YHTP [\YRL`VMM[OLMYHTL IYPZRL[‹ZTVRLK ZO WP[HZr^YHWZ OVTLTHKLZV\WZ IYLHRMHZ[VTLSL[Z WHUJHRLZ‹ISPU[aLZ NS\[LUMYLLIYLHKZ Deli Selections .HYKLU:X\HYL:OVWWLZ‹ 54PSP[HY`;YHPS7HST)LHJO.HYKLUZ(7\ISP_7SHa H‹ 5>*VYULY4PSP[HY`r7.(‹^^^IV\SL]HYKNV\YTL[KLSPJVT Military Trail PGA Boulevard FREE >P-P FREE >P-P Ladies Consignment Boutique &/27+,1*‡6+2(6‡$&&(6625,(6 Not Your Average Consignment Boutique$OW$$QH[WWR3XEOL[3URPHQDGH3OD]D6XLWH 3DOP%HDFK*DUGHQV Consignments by appt. 2)) $1<21(,7(0 H[FOXGHVUP SULFHGWLFNHWV ([S 6L]H=HURWR3OXV6L]HV6W-RKQ3UDGD/LOO\3XOLW]HU7RU\%XUFK&KLFRV'RRQH\%RXUNH&RDFK0LFKDHO.RUV $QQ7D\ORU&DFKH:KLWH+RXVH%ODFN0DUNHW$QWKURSRORJLH$QQH.OHLQ$EHUFURPELH)LWFK7ULQD7XUN www.gwensconsignment.com 6XPPHU+RXUV0RQGD\6DWSP by night, as a hub for artists to gather and sell their art. Its just been one small idea thats morphed into something thats rather large and awesome,Ž said Mr. Hodson. The Brewhouse is the latest part of what is becoming a cultural hub along Park Avenue. It is adjacent to MosArt Theatre and just east of Artists of the Palm Beaches Art on Park gallery. On a recent afternoon, the B rewhouse was humming with activity as Mr. Brockman led a tour of the space. His mother, Jo, bustled behind the bar organizing coffee, mugs and such. The large space is more reminiscent of New Yorks SoHo than of Lake Park. But the space is pure Florida „ a large flamingo sculpture greets visitors at the door. Clusters of sofas and chairs form seating groups in the high-ceilinged space. A bed for Mr. Brockmans helper dog, Dre, sits in a corner near the coffee bar. Paintings, photography and mixed media works by local artists cover the walls. Mr. Brockmans own colorful computer-generated art anchors a prominent wall above a doorway into the cof-fee bar, a low-ceilinged space that may remind visitors of those basement clubs that fill New Yorks Greenwich Village. A colorful graffiti-style mural stretches across the end wall. Its part of Mr. Brockmans vision for self-sufficiency. All his life he knew he would be an artist, even if his health got in the way. Diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of 2, Mr. Brockman relies on a power wheelchair to get around „ he can move only his facial muscles and three fingers of his left hand. The whole idea of doing the gallery was „ my disease is progressive „ so eventually, my hand will give out, and I wont be able to create at all or Ill have to figure out another way to create with different technology,Ž he said. This was something that could set me up to be involved in the arts, but still be a mon-etary support for living out my life.Ž To paint, he uses a computer and those fingers that still function. In 2012, he presented President Obama with a portrait he had painted of the first family; the president autographed Mr. Brockmans copy of the portrait. Days later, The New York Times ran a photo of an aide carrying the portrait off Air Force One. Talk to him and you sense his moxie „ after all, this is the kid who used his wheelchair to be goalie on a roller hockey team during middle school. He graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School and attended Digital Media Arts College in Boca Raton. Then he went to work.I graduated from arts school in 09, so I worked for a design firm for two to three years and got really tired of the corporate grind and listening to the art director when I wanted to do it the way I wanted to do it and the client wanted it this way but I knew it didnt look good that way,Ž he said. So Mr. Brockman opened his Single Handed Studios to do commercial work, and embarked on his fine art career. He has sold his digital art at all the major area shows „ SunFest, ArtiGras and the Delray Affair, among others. But I just got really burned out with that over the last few years, and this has always been kind of in the back of my mind, of having my own gallery,Ž he said. But we had to come up with a way to make it work.Ž Only time will tell whether it will work, but the beginnings have been aus-picious enough. More than 350 people attended the Brewhouses opening on May 16. BREWHOUSEFrom page 28SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYWalls at The Brewhouse Gallery are trimmed out with wainscotting of corrugated steel. Artists rent wall space for a three-month period. Cozy seating areas fill the room, and even the vintage furniture is for sale.

So was Taylor Jones.Ms. Jones, a former news photographer at The Palm Beach Post, also is one of the exhibiting artists at B rewhouse. It doesnt matter if you have a great piece of art if nobody sees it,Ž she said. Theyre getting people in the door.Ž So far, the visitors are coming.Mr. Brockman and Mr. Hodson had envisioned a space where people could attend musical and comedy performanc-es, lectures and poetry readings. Trivia Night, coffee tastings and food trucks. It fits our model really well with that hipster vibe with the food trucks,Ž Mr. Brockman said. Mr. Hodson developed a business plan and Mr. Brockman oversees the artists in a routine that plays to each mans strengths „ I couldnt really draw a stick figure in action,Ž Mr. Hod-son joked. Friends have chipped in.Im the booking agent, Im the DJ and Im the bartender,Ž said Brad Barfield, whose day job is acting teacher at Drey-foos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. Its a family affair,Ž said Jo Brockman.Ive known Bobby the other partner since he was 6 and I was 4. AJ and Jo and I became very close very quickly,Ž Mr. Barfield said. When youre chipping concrete and building bars together you tend to become family.Ž He spent his spring break building the bar at Brewhouse. That bar and the entertainment have proven to be draw. I went to the last couple of Saturday night music things and there was a good number of people in and out,Ž Ms. Jones said. The advantage of that?Im not comfortable about going into galleries, but going into a coffeehouse and grabbing a cold beer is much more inviting to me,Ž she said. It draws in people who may not be collectors per se but want something for their wall.Ž Its comparatively affordable, too.Brewhouse charges a flat rate for wall space, with no commission. At the art shows, theyre paying almost $400 for the weekend, and you can have your work here for three months for that amount of money,Ž Mr. Brockman said. That adds up to real value, especially for someone like Ms. Jones, who is launching a second career selling photo-graphic prints, tiles and jewelry. Im pretty excited about it,Ž she said. Ive had my stuff in a gallery before and you have to pay 50 percent commission on everything.Ž And that adds up to savings for wouldbe collectors. You can walk out with a piece of art and not have to sell your car to buy it,Ž Ms. Jones said. That said, the gallery is still a gamble for its principals. Mr. Hodson knows a thing or two about a gamble „ since graduating from Florida State University in 2005, he has played poker for a living. Im pretty cool under pressure and was definitely happy to gamble with this,Ž he said. I felt like it was a statisti-cally favorable gamble so I was happy to get all my chips in and go for the gold.Ž Said Mr. Brockman: I get a sense of giving back or making the world a bet-ter place for art. It was not something I wanted to do but something I had to do.Ž Q SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThe bar at the rear of The Brewhouse Gallery is reminiscent of a big-city basement club.

Expect to hear mostly positive com-ments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note.CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck withŽ right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential.LEO (July 23 to August 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relation-ship might never heal unless youre will-ing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out.VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might even impact a personal decision youve been putting off.LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a proj-ect that requires both skill and account-ability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside.SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beck-ons by weeks end.SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options care-fully before making a decision.

But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assess-ments with others.ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out.TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sen-sible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out.BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of talking to people that makes them want to listen.

A38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Dish: General Gaus Chicken The Place: Mr. Zhangs Chinese, Donald Ross Village, 4650 Donald Ross Road, Palm Beach Gardens; 624-2946 The Price: $7.95 (lunch) The Details: Its a joke in South Florida. How can a place that has so many transplanted New Yorkers and Bostonians not cultivate a great Chinese restaurant? In West Palm Beach, were partial to Singing Bamboo. Along PGA Boulevard, well gladly visit Sun Hai Tokyo. And in the countys more northerly reaches, well count Mr. Zhangs as a worthy contender for such favorites as General Gaus Chicken, the restaurants version of General Tsos chicken, the breaded, fried chicken dish thats tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce. The bits of chicken we had at lunch were tender and not over-breaded. The sauce was sweet, but not too sweet, just the way we like it. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Jason Laudenslager, owner and the executive chef of Entre Nous in North Palm Beach, is a true, jump-in-and-learn kind of guy. And hes straight-up about those who gave him the chance to learn along the way, including his chef, Johnny Contreras. I started out as a server and bartender at the original Amici in Palm Beach,Ž he said. Johnny was the chef there. Thats where we met.Ž It wasnt his dream to get into the kitchen „ or even stay in hospitality. But that changed over time. While waiting tables and bartending, he would occasionally help in the kitchen when they got backed up. Id help them peel shrimp or do whatever chores.Ž The managers of Amici opened Galaxy Grill nearby, and Mr. Laudenslager worked there as well, again with Mr. Contreras. I went back and forth working in the Hamptons three or four seasons with them and decided I really liked the food and service business,Ž he said. Seasons 52 was about to open in Palm Beach Gardens at the time, and he was going to sign on as bartender for the restaurant unique in this area. Then Gus place came open,Ž he said. As they say, timing is everything.Ž The Tropical Bistro, a successful but tiny 30-seat restaurant in Lake Park, owned by Gus Blake, was up for sale. He bought the place, keeping some menu items popular with the mature crowd that frequented Tropical Bistro. Then, I took staple dishes from all over „ duck, fillet, crab cakes, rack of lamb with a horseradish crust, a pasta and snapper „ I think we had eight items and two specials,Ž he said. It con-tinued to be a success. Soon, they outgrew the Park Avenue space. A spot in a well kept but unassum-ing strip mall on U.S. 1 came available, and offered more exposure to passersby. Some people think a restaurant in a strip mall is a turn-off. I dont get it,Ž he said. When they come in and see the ambience, its totally different from what they expect. Its really nice; comfortable. We have 150 seats, a full bar with a bar menu. We have classics and specialty drinks and a special coffee-drink menu. The bar is always slamming with locals.Ž The restaurant is open for dinner only „ to give the staff a break. Most of them have been with me five years or longer,Ž he said. We start early prepping, and are slammed from happy hour at the bar til we close. Then we clean up and do all over again the next day „ everybody comes in fresh and happy.Ž A bigger place meant he needed help, so he contacted the former chef and hired him to work at Entre Nous. He credits him at every chance. Johnny knows a lot about the history of the foods and all about techniques,Ž Mr. Laudenslager said. Its good for me, having him take over the day-to-day cooking. I can plan, step back and take a breath. Ill jump in and see that the food is seasoned right and in the window and expedite. But Johnnys great.Ž The chef is a master saucier as well. He was doing cutting edge, exciting stuff in Palm Beach,Ž he said. All sauces and reductions are produced in-house. Why buy a sauce base thats inferior to the food its going to be served with, he wonders. You can buy all these ready-made reductions „ theyre all just corn syrup, flavored.Ž Making them is too simple not to make in-house, he said. We dont use any flour, either „ all our sauces are natural reductions. Were very gluten-friendly, if not mostly gluten-free. Our master sauces produce green peppercorn for the fillets, a whole-grain mustard sauce, a beurre blanc that we can do with a lemon-caper tweak, a truffle demi-glace. Nine master sauces altogether.Ž Mr. Contreras said, Were well known for what we do. We keep everything as fresh as we can. We use the fresh-est vegetables in season and treat them carefully.Ž Though hes a native of Morelos, Mexico, hes learned Mediterranean cooking from top chefs at Bice and Amici in Palm Beach. A bit of Asian from Galaxy Grill, and his own Latin influences mean hes versed in the fusion that results in cus-tomer favorites at Entre Nous. Appetizers include black truffle sacchettis „ pasta pieces stuffed with four cheeses and served in a brown butter sage sauce. The dining audience likes the Continental fare thats getting harder to find, he said. Scallops St. Jacques, foie gras, beef carpaccio are on the starter menu. Clas-sic wedge, Caesar salad and a modern chopped salad also are offered. Steak au poivre, scampi, beef Bourguignon, duck, and rack of lamb are all top sellers. His culinary idol is Mario Batali, who, he says, emphasizes freshness in all his foods. I love his cooking. I havent tasted anything from him „ IŽve never been to his restaurants „ but I can read his recipes or watch him cook and taste his food. Hes all about cooking fresh with flavor. You dont have to do much to fresh foods „ just let their flavors come through,Ž he said. Cooking really is all about technique „ its really the basics,Ž Mr. Laudenslager said. Our garlic „ we have sliced garlic, shaved garlic and chopped garlic. They are used specifically „ you get different results by chopping or slicing or shav-ing it. Or using it whole. Some places buy chopped garlic in a jar and use it for everything. These places are just doing it to save money, and really, just working for the money. We buy quality ingredients. Its what our diners are paying for. Good olive oil „ we cook with the same kind we offer to guests on the table. They know good food. He differentiates between his restaurant and those that cut corners to save on labor, and ultimately cost. It isnt hard „ theyre making it harder than it has to be. When you buy packaged food thats not that great, you have to do more to it to make it acceptable. So youre really not saving anything. Other places buy sliced mushrooms, or use chopped romaine for salads. Who knows when it was chopped and bagged „ or how long it took to get from the processing plant to the kitchen? We dont do any of that „ everything is made and chopped in-house. Definitely vegetables,Ž Mr. Laudenslager laughed. We tried sliced cabbage once for a slaw. It wasnt crisp or as green as ours that we sliced ourselves. We never bought it again.Ž Fish is brought in whole „ or a large loin in the case of giant swordfish, and filleted or cut into steaks and immedi-ately put on the menu. Our wahoo car-paccio is cut a la minute and served with a housemade soy, ponzu and cucumber reduction. We try to do as much as pos-sible a la minute „ theres nothing sit-ting around back there in our kitchen.Ž Steaks and their lamb chops are butchered in-house as well, he said. We dont buy anything Cryo-vacced (vacuum packed) or frozen. No laser-cut meats. Thats just not us.Ž Mr. Laudenslager knows what customers are likely to order and buys only enough to last about two days. Mr. Contreras said, What makes everything so special for me as a chef is creating my own fresh food. The best part of my job is making the customer feel happy. A lot of people come right into the kitchen and ask, Who cooked this? Its great! We love it when they do that.Ž Mr. Laudenslager agreed. Giving the customers a good experience is what were all about. Theres something really great about following the plate from the kitchen to the table, and seeing the diner take their first bite of the hot food, and smile.Ž Name: Jason Laudenslager Age: 40 Restaurant: Entre Nous Bistro, 123 U.S. 1, North Palm Beach; 863-5883; entrenousbistro.com Original Hometown: West Palm Beach Mission as a chef: Customer satisfaction. Freshness and high-quality ingredients.Ž Cuisine style: Bistro food, somewhere between home-style food and haute cuisine with dishes that are clas-sics, with the spirit of global influences „ such as Asian, French and Italian.Ž Training for your job: Many years in hospitality business, since I was 15. Hiring the right people, and having a good palate.Ž Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Mozo brand.Ž Whats your guilty food pleasure? T hai, and g ood pizza.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? Be passionate about it; dont skimp on quality.

www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 A39 NHCs report. Thats an uncomfortable decision for any, meteorologists say, but especially under pressure. Lives were on the line. First, though, they had to get permission from the boss to make that move „ Steve Pontius, executive vice president of Waterman Broadcasting. We pulled our team aside,Ž Mr. Van Winkle recalled in an April conversa-tion about Mr. Reif, and Jim said, We need to break with this NHC forecast. Even though we both got credit for mak-ing that call, we needed Jims experience that day.Ž Mr. Pontius recalls the entire moment as both extraordinary and bizarre. Gods honest truth, its Friday the 13th. And all day long we had prepared for a hurricane we thought was going to miss us and go 120 miles out in the gulf and hit north of Sarasota, and be a big deal. So our focus was getting some live trucks up and staging them so we could swoop in up there, when the hurricane passed. About 10:30 a.m., I looked up, and Jim was coming in my door, with Robert. Jim says, Were telling you right now, its going to change course. Its going to impact our area and get as far south as Cape Coral. I said, Isnt there a new National Hurricane briefing coming out in a few minutes? Jim said, Yes, but they wont say that. There are politics and the science involved, so they have to move sl owly.Ž On the spur of the moment, Mr. Pontius called a meeting, and made his deci-sion almost in mid-stride. I looked at them and said, You guys have a responsibility „ to tell our view-ers that this is how we see it, and we strongly suggest you take shelter.Ž They wasted no time. And they were right. They were so spot on,Ž Mr. Pontius recalls, adding this final salute to Mr. Reif „ a man gone from the flesh, but now in hurricane season eternally pres-ent, it seems: When the weather was at its worst, he was at his best.ŽQuick, or crazy, reactionsAll over the region, people saw their broadcasts and reacted. Mike Kiniry, then a WGCU public radio journalist, was sent to the Emer-gency Operations Center in Lee to do remote broadcasts back to the studio. I was standing out front chatting with Dan Noah, the warning coordi-nation meteorologist down from the National Weather Service in Ruskin. His cell phone rang and I could immediately tell from his demeanor that he was get-ting serious news,Ž he recalls. The hurricane had turned, and Mr. Kiniry called his mom and told her to get out of her house near the Caloosa-hatchee River. That night, he would dis-cover his own North Fort Myers house completely destroyed by a huge African mahogany tree „ except for the room where he kept his art and his aquarium fish. Stephanie Davis, Florida Weeklys social commentator, heard Jim Reifs broadcast and retreated from her home to the downtown Cigar Bar „ for a week. The place had electricity because it was on the grid for the sheriffs office and the jail. Wayne Daltry, then head of Lee County Smart Growth and the man who years earlier had prepared the first sophis-ticated emergency evacuation plan on the southwest coast for just such an occasion, also heard the warning broadcast. But it was too late to evacuate, he figured. We immediately made the hallway the safe room, and called the kids and told them to do the same,Ž he recalls. Sanibel-based artist Lucas Century, with his wife, Dee, and their greyhound, Gracie, had already evacuated to the Homewood Suites at the Bell Tower. We were dialed into Jim Reif and Van Winkle, listening to their dire warnings about the shift in direc-tions and in particular the 16-foot water surge predictions. They had, for a short time, predicted the storm was headed right for the east end of Sanibel, which is where my old 1960 ground-level cottage was.Ž The wall of water „ the massive surge „ never came because the storm was traveling three times faster than other storms typically move on a 27-degree-north bearing, Mr. Sallade explains. But it was still a terrible blow. This was when the electricity went out and I was left with the awful sick feeling that my property and art studio was about to be blown away,Ž Mr. Cen-tury recalls. It was early in the day, but I started reaching for the case of cold beer I found myself guzzling.Ž The broadcasts also gave some people a chance to be, if not crazy, bolder than sanity requires. Stacey Chadwick Brown, an administrator and teacher at Florida South-Western State College, recalls hiding at her brother-in-laws house with three small daughters, a wrecked van and a case of bronchitis, while her husband, Stuart, a theater professor at Florida SouthWestern, stayed home. The home, right on the Caloosahatchee River, was 11 inches above sea level. Stuart tied himself to the ironwork of the house with a rope during the storm and prevented the house from flooding with a hose, a diet Coke can, probably some chewing tobacco and a pump. No lie.Ž Some people didnt even bother to tie themselves to their properties, they were so tough. Or old. Or both. I was taking care of my father who, at the time, was 90 years old,Ž recalls Woody Hanson, a real estate appraiser who grew up on the river in Fort Myers. His father had lived through the famous and deadly hurricanes of 1926 and 1928, just to start with. Our house is situated under some very large oaks that survived Hurricane Donna in 1960,Ž Mr. Hanson explains. I suggested that we should relocate because of the path of the storm. He says, Weve never run from a hurricane and we never will. Aint nothin but a bunch of wind and rain. Doesnt amount to nothin unless the eye wall hits you.Ž Which, in the end, is not the view of most people, Wayne Sallade chief among them. He started the fateful day with his crew at a Charlotte County operations center that amounted to little more than a Teds shed, he recalls. After an emer-gency telephone call at about 3 p.m. from a friend who told him he would be no good to anybody dead, he moved the 50 or so personnel toward the much safer operations center at the county jail. But they never made it. Halfway there, with the rising wind already at about 75 miles per hour and shrapnel of sorts pocking and cracking the windshield of his Ford Expedition in a dozen places, he led the crew into the airport. As luck and wisdom would have it, he says, hed been able to convince taxpay-ers in 1999 to provide an extra penny to reinforce one building at the airport, for emergencies. And thats where they went. Jim Reif and company would have told him „ and probably did tell him „ to move a lot sooner than he did. But at least he did it in time, he admits.When the storm was over, every other building at the airport was destroyed,Ž Mr. Sallade recalls. But not that one.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOSRobert Van Winkle and Jim Reif cover Hurricane Charley in 2004 in the NBC2 studio.
