However, you might recall that one of the films competing for top awards that year was Brokeback Mountain.Ž The film produced shock and awe among American audiences unprepared for gay cowboys kissing passionately. Though Brokeback MountainŽ received wide critical acclaim, it won only a single Oscar, for Best Original Score. Best Picture that year went to Crash.Ž It also took top honors for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing. Though it enjoyed modest box office success, the film was judged an underwhelming pick by many film crit-ics, with the exception of Roger Ebert. He declared CrashŽ the best movie made in 2005 and predicted in advance of the awards it would be named Best Picture. To some, it was a surprising choice. CrashŽ is set in modern Los Angeles. It tells the stories of multiple characters whose lives intersect with explosive results, encounters made dangerous and deadly by the race, class and ethnic ten-sions at the citys core. Its all there: two white cops, one good, one bad; a black detective and his criminal brother; a white, elitist D.A. and his socialite wife; a Persian and His-panic immigrant pursuing the American Dream; and a black professional and his wife subjected to racial profiling. Each characters story is told as a parable revealing the dual sides of their singular coin, one side sympathetic, the other, abhorrent. Ebert lauded the movie, saying it ƒ doesnt assign simplistic good and evil labels but shows that the same person can be sometimes be a victim, sometimes a victimizer.Ž He observed most of the movies characters sur-vive theirs and others moral depravity „ Not happier, not calmer, not even wiser, but better.Ž It was a lot to hang the virtues of the movie on. Some labeled the film overly nave, an urban fairy tale full of banalities. Others had a different reason to dispute Eberts coronation of the films message as durable. A.O. Scotts review in The New York Times said the film wasnt plausible because the source and cause of the characters prejudice are far more com-plex than the film depicts. Said Scott, The idea that bigotry is the public face of private unhappiness „ the notion that we lash out at people we dont know as a form of displaced revenge against the more familiar sources of our misery „ is an interesting oneƒŽ; but nonetheless, in his view the film didnt rise to proof of concept. He didnt find believable the films premise that bigotry can be a misguided expression of hate and anger by a good person bummed out by a bad day at the office. What Scott judged a decade ago as overwrought and implausibleŽ is not the fiction it once seemed: life is now imitating art. The campaign season has pulled back the curtain on a reality show where personal bigotry is elevated to a star-ring role on a national stage, and absent moral constraints. Prejudice of all stripes is on exhibit and alarmingly mainstream, promoted and sanctioned by a growing political movement that stokes emotional excess, encouraging misplaced revenge. Those who un-closet their bigotry to win accolades from their peers may oth-erwise pass for decent, hardworking and humane people, like some of the charac-ters in Crash.Ž But they are intoxicated by rage as a source of empowerment, not suspecting it also makes them ripe for exploitation. The shepherds gathering this flock know this; they are provocateurs. They use the language of fear and hate to incite their charges, using blame as their rod to prod them into common cause. In their pasture, exceptionalism means only they are exceptional. They would edit the American Dream until the ideals it represents are dead to millions of dreamers not thought to qualify. Author Ta-Nehisi Coates thinks this already describes the African-American experience in this country. His book, Between the World and Me,Ž is witness to the deep sense of pes-simism haunting the countrys hope for a unified people and future. He penned it from his perspective as a black Ameri-can, drawing from the vessel of his own pain. The book is in the form of a letter to Coates teenage son, the same structure used by James Baldwin in The Fire Next Time.Ž Coates, like Baldwin, lays bare the all-consuming fear African-Americans experience at the hands of the white majority. The narrative is an intense-ly personal account of the destruction done to black lives by race discrimi-nation, affecting multiple generations across the arc of American history. It is a bleak and difficult read about the lies white America tells itself about the status of equity and opportunity for African-Americans. The American Dream „ to achieve prosperity, success and upward mobil-ity, each according to their ability and ambition „ may not be dead; but Coates brilliant book makes clear that the Dream is, for too many others, an American nightmare.

One-year mailed subscriptions: $31.95 in-county $52.95 in-state $59.95 out-of-state Ted Cruz Is Nixon, not Goldwater The lazy conventional wisdom is that Ted Cruz is the new Barry Goldwater, doomed to suffer an electoral landslide defeat should he win the Republican nomination. Not only is this wrong about Cruzs general-election chances, it may com-pare Cruz to the wrong 20th-century Republican forebear. The better ana-logue for Cruz might be Richard Nixon, not in the crudely pejorative sense, but as another surpassingly shrewd and ambitious politician who lacked a per-sonal touch but found a way to win nonetheless. First, all the caveats. Obviously and most importantly, Cruz is not a paranoi-ac. Hes more ideological than Nixon. And he has none of Nixons insecu-rity, in fact the opposite. Nixon went to tiny Whittier College and resented the Northeastern elite; Cruz went to Princeton and Harvard, and could be a member of the Northeastern elite in good standing if he wanted to be.But Cruz is cut from roughly similar cloth. He wears his ambition on his sleeve and isnt highly charismatic or relatable. If Cruz wins the nomination, itll be on the strength of intelligence and willpower. Hell have outworked, outsmarted and outmaneuvered everyone else.Certainly, Cruz isnt ascending on the basis of warm feelings from his col-leagues. Cruz portrays his unpopular-ity within the Senate as establishment distaste for him as a lonely man of prin-ciple. But its a genuine personal dislike. Not that Cruz cares. In fact, a key to what he has been able to achieve is his apparent immunity to the reflexive desire to be liked by people around you, a weakness to which almost all of us fall prey. Cruz is free of the peer pres-sure that typically makes all senators, at some level, team players. Cruz is a Reagan Republican, although with considerable flexibility. When Rand Paul seemed to be on the ascendancy a couple of years ago, Cruz was a Reagan Republican with Paulite accents. When Donald Trump began to dominate, Cruz became a Reagan Republican with Trumpian tendencies. Cruz penned an op-ed with Paul Ryan last April that was a ringingly stalwart argument for trade-promotion authority. Two months later, when a brush fire erupted on the right over Obam-atrade,Ž Cruz abruptly reversed course and came out against trade-promotion authority „ he cited procedural reasons „ and then opposed the underlying trade agreement as well. Is all the effort on Cruzs part only in the cause of a 1964-style ideological blowout? No. The countrys too evenly divided for another Goldwater-style landslide loss, and Hillary Clinton is a deeply flawed candidate. But Cruz has major vulnerabilities. Hes more ideologically defined than George W. Bush in 2000 or Barack Obama in 2008, and his current theory of the general election „ that he need turn out only conservatives „ is a com-forting fable. Marco Rubio and Chris Christie are both, in their own ways, more winsome, and its easier to see how each of them could pick off Obama states. But Cruz has always understood that you have to win the primary to win the general. Whoever is going to beat him better know what hes doing „ because Cruz certainly does. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Weather reports from 50 years hence Jan. 22, 2066, National Weather Service, Clewiston: EAST COAST: Meteorologists predict calm weather along Floridas east coast from Homestead north to the Bay of Okeechobee this week. Conditions are expected to remain favorable for sunbathing on the regions popular Atlantic beaches in Homestead, Kendall, Westchester, Cold Springs, Palm Beach Gardens and Belle Glade, with good boating and fishing over the condo and house reefs in the shallow, 50-foot waters topping South Beach, Miami Beach, Hollywood, Fort Lauder-dale, Boca Raton, Lake Worth, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach and Jupiter. WEST COAST: On Floridas west coast, however, officials advise some caution, as waters will be rougher along beaches in Golden Gate, Ave Maria, Lehigh Acres, LaBelle and Arcadia. Fish-ing and treasure hunting „ the popular new sport embraced by the annual 18 million Mexican visitors to Florida and most of the states 3.7 million former Syrian refugees, now citizens „ is not advised in the condo-canyons of Marco Island, Naples or Fort Myers Beach waters, where several diving mishaps have recently occurred. Officials say snorkeling and scuba diving above Sanibel, the Captivas and Boca Grande should be safe once waves of 20 to 25 feet subside. ORLANDO and the SOUTHEAST: Snow flurries are expected in Tampa, Orlando and points north starting today, with accumulations of 3 to 5 feet in the Panhandle and south Georgia and 10 to 12 feet from Atlanta north. Driving con-ditions will be poor. NORTHEAST: The region once known as New England, in what officials formerly called the northeastern United States, remains submerged beneath 350 feet of fresh snow, although spring floods from the polar ice cap that finally melted completely last year are expected to reduce snow pack, officials say, possibly revealing the tops of buildings in such former cities as Boston, New York and Philadelphia for the first time in 16 years. Officials have offered no reports from Buffalo and Montreal northward since the year 2041. No one has been to the place they used to call Canada and no one wants to go, they acknowledged. MIDWEST: Conditions are expected to be normal this week, with rainfall returning for the first time since 2055 and farmers „ those who can remember how to farm „ hoping to plant wheat, corn, beans and other crops for the first time in 11 years. FAR WEST: Weather remains somewhat stormy this week along the Pacific beaches from Boise to Salt Lake City to Phoenix. Although recreational boating is impossible, officials say, the annual International Suicide Surfing Conven-tion is expected to convene in Las Vegas on Friday. Weather officials say surfers from New Zealand, Tibet, Nepal and the newer Mediterranean seafront surfing commu-nities where the sport has grown popu-lar in recent years „ Paris, Dusseldorf, Bologna, Milan and Geneva, among oth-ers „ will have ideal conditions for gam-bling along the Vegas beaches. Waves are expected to average 200 to 300 feet, and the likelihood of survival is optimisti-cally rated at about .005 percent. WEEKLY ANALYSIS: Ponce de Rubio, a Weather Service climatologist, provides this weeks guest analysis from Clewiston, courtesy of the Koch Broth-ers News and Weather Service located in Wichita. The grandson of the late Florida senator and 20-time presidential aspirant Marco Rubio „ a famously ardent cli-mate-science denier who disappeared in a flood that consumed West Miami, his hometown, in the 2030s „ Mr. Rubio noted that no scientific proof exists of manmade weather changes because most of it has been washed away or buried. So we cant know,Ž he said. And frankly, it hurts business to make claims that havent been proven. Floridas econ-omy is on the upswing, and even though the distance from the gulf beaches to the Atlantic beaches now only averages about 23 miles in the Sunshine State, we have to utilize every inch to make money from this paradise we all love so much and want to protect.Ž Mr. Rubio agreed that questioning what happened is natural on the part of citizens. But he insisted the weather is also natural, a purely organic and there-fore very healthy condition of a naturally tempestuous planet. Sure, people wonder why theres snow along the Amazon, or why its 80 degrees and sunny at the North Pole one day and 400 below zero the next, but thats natural,Ž he said. Everything is natural „ youre natural, the weather is natural, and Im natu-ral, too. I can tell you what Grandpa Rubio told me when I was a small boy back in the teens and 20s, because its still true, naturally. Ponce, you can take this to the bank, hed say, putting me on his knee: Severe weather changes happen simply because God wants them to happen. And they happen probably about every 12,000 years or so, whenever theres a new Ice Age and he questions our behav-ior because 9 or 10 billion people kept driving cars with internal combustion engines for about 50 years after they knew better. Thats what Grandpa told me. And all these naysayers who claim otherwise? Theyve always reminded me of the surgeon generals they used to have back then. They were always spouting off about how smoking by pregnant women could result in fetal injury, premature birth and low birth weight „ about lung cancer this and lung cancer that. But that was just a lot of hot air. And this is just a lot more hot air, nowadays. Thats all it is. Hot, hot, hot „ very hot „ air.Ž Q roger

I think we can all agree that its not nearly long enough. Canine lifespans vary from as short as 6 to 8 years for certain giant breeds to an astounding 20-plus years for some tiny dogs. Owners of small and medium-size dogs can generally expect their compan-ions to live 10 to 15 years. Diet, good care and genetics all play a role in the length of a dogs life, but two researchers at the University of Washing-ton in Seattle are hoping to learn more about how dogs age, as well as whether the aging process can be delayed and the lifes-pan lengthened. The Dog Aging Project (DAP), headed by Daniel Promislow, Ph.D., and Matt Kaeberlein, Ph.D., plans to track 10,000 dogs in homes around the United States to get a sense of how genetic and environmental factors affect aging in dogs. As dogs „ and humans and other animals „ age, organs and tissues break down, increasing the risk of age-related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, kid-ney disease, Alzheimers disease and more. Age is a greater risk factor for these diseases than diet, weight and exercise. The big picture behind what were trying to do is to understand the aging process so we can delay the onset and progression of all these diseases,Ž Dr. Kaeberlein says. Its sort of a fundamental shift from the traditional medical approach, which is to wait until dogs „ or people „ are sick, and then try to treat the disease.Ž The dogs in this observational study will include many different breeds in different environments: short-lived dogs, long-lived dogs, dogs in wealthy households and dogs in more modest households. The research-ers will look at not just how long the dogs live, but also at how environmental factors affect them as they age. Included in the DAP will be a smaller study, with up to 36 pet dogs in the Seattle area. It will look at whether a drug called Rapamycin „ used to prevent organ trans-plant rejection in humans „ can slow aging, extend canine lifespans and improve quality of life. The drug has been shown to increase lifespan in many different organisms, Dr. Kaeberlein says, as well as improve cognitive, cardiac and immune function in animals such as mice. Theres been accumulating evidence over the past several years that not only do they live longer, but that the aging process itself is slowed down,Ž he says. Of the 46 dogs whose owners have expressed interest in enrolling them in the Rapamycin study, only 26 dogs so far have met the criteria to be included: at least 6 years old, weighing at least 40 pounds and with no pre-existing condi-tions. Among them are golden retrievers, a greyhound, Labrador retrievers, Ger-man shepherds and mixed breeds. In both studies, dogs are good subjects because their shorter lifespan allows sci-entists to see results in a decade or less. If we had a large enough sample size, we could know in three years „ certainly in five years „ the extent to which Rapamycin improved healthy aging in dogs,Ž Dr. Promislow says. And for a longitudinal study of age, where we want to follow dogs throughout life and understand the genetic or environmental factors that affect aging and disease in dogs, you can do that in a decade. Thats not possible in that timeframe in people.Ž The eventual results could have implications for humans, but the dog-loving scientists say their research is about more than that. Were both determined to find ways to improve the quality of life for dogs,Ž Dr. Kaeberlein says. This is not just about finding something that will help people. It might be good for dogs and their owners.Ž Q Studies of canine longevity could have benefits for dogs and humans.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 21-27, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYexpectations in an election-year leg-islative session are a mere 160 elected men and women, including 40 senators and 120 representatives working with Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Below, Florida Weekly offers the voices of several reflecting on the challenges they face and the issues of importance to them personally, as well as a map detailing the contact informa-tion and showing the districts of all who represent Florida Weekly readers. Rep. Matt Hudson, a District 80 Republican, points out that Floridas is the only state legislature in the nation to make the business of legislators completely open in live time to any citizens elsewhere, via a free mobile app designed for Android and Apple devices. One need only search for the FloridaHouse app, and then download it. You can watch any meeting live, you can be there to see what were doing and talking about all the time. Its great transparency in government,Ž he says. For two decades the legislature has been predominantly Republican, as it is in this session. Together, legislators will decide how much to tax their citizens, how to spend the money their citizens provide, what laws to enact on behalf of their citizens, and how their citizens will be treated by police, educated by teachers, or cared for by medical professionals if they are uninsured. They have eight weeks to do it. This years early session wraps up on March 11, giving those who need it the time to campaign in a tidal-wave of a presiden-tial election year parsed by this long-standing truth: All politics is local,Ž as the late Tip ONeill, a Massachusetts congressman, once said.Local, regional, national issuesA British-based newspaper, The Guardian, offered an observation last week about Florida politics that reflects that American truth, in a report about the guns-on-campus bill coming before legislators in this session. Now the measure is back before them in Tallahassee, alongside a new bill that would make Florida the lat-est open carry state. It highlights a stark reality facing (President) Barack Obamas efforts to break Americas love affair with firearms: irrespective of any executive order, the real power in directing the nations gun laws resides in its state capitals.Ž A lot of other real power resides in the state capital, too. Among the other issues facing legislators are these: water and the environ-ment and how to fix both; health care and who gets it; gambling and who gets to do it where and for how much; tax cuts proposed by Gov. Scott and who gets them; incentive money for businesses and who gets that; disabled people and how better to support them; and alimony laws. Many of those issues are ongoing and unlikely to be solved in the near future. The only thing we really have to do is pass a budget,Ž says Rep. Ken Rob-erson, a District 75 Republican based in Charlotte County. Rep. Roberson is now terming out after eight years, as the law requires. Addressing proper funding for health care and education „ that by itself takes up two-thirds of the Florida budget,Ž he points out. Gov. Scott has proposed a $79 billion budget for the coming year set to kick off July 1. It could provide between $750 million and $1 billion in tax breaks, including the abolition of a 5.5 percent income tax on corpo-rations and retail businesses worth about $2 billion each year to the state. Some members of the House are also proposing a $1 billion tax cut in the bud-get. The governors plan includes a smaller tax for businesses that pay one on commercial leases, the elimi-nation of sales tax on manu-facturing equipment, and a $250 million bucket fund to encourage businesses to locate in Florida. Among other goals, the governor has proposed spending more money on digital educa-tion and on support for students, bring-ing the total spent on each up to $7,176. Although that figure represents the highest dollar amount ever spent on public education per student, as the governor has proclaimed „ its $50 more than Gov. Charlie Crists $7,126 per student in 2007-2008 „ in todays dollars it represents something sig-nificantly less than the Crist effort. His output for students would have amounted to about $8,380 in 2016, fol-lowing an average annual inflation rate of 1.82 percent. The education budget itself is likely to exceed $20 billion, legislators say. So the special 160 have a lot on their plates. But each legislator also intends to do other things less acclaimed „ some-times, to pass legislation that reflects their own experiences and might make 20 million other people the better for it, in their views. As the father of a child with Aspergers syndrome, I can related to what (Senate President) Andy Gardiner is doing with his bill „ hes trying to incentivize businesses to employ people with disabilities,Ž explains Pat Rooney, a District 85 Republican from Palm Beach Gardens. In the past if you had a neurological disability youd be automatically categorized as unable to do a job. But thats not the case. A lot of people with disabilities can do jobs as well as quote-unquote normal people.Ž That bill passed in the first week of session. But another issue likely to effect many, including Rep. Rooney, is a new $3 billion gambling deal signed by Gov. Scott and the Seminole Tribe last month giving it the exclusive right to offer craps and roulette in seven casi-nos and the right to be a predominant blackjack host if the Tribe provides part of its profits to the state. The legislature has to agree, though, before it becomes law, says Rep. Rooney, who in private life heads the Palm Beach Kennel Club. Its now up to the legislature to look this over. We have a lot of interested groups „ the stand-alone casino folks, the pari-mutuels, all kinds of folks that have a stake in the alternative gambling pie. So youll see debate, presented by the legislators who represent those groups. I dont think this is going to be an easy sell.Ž And ultimately we need to have some kind of comprehensive plan for gaming in this state.Ž In the last six months, the Palm Beach Kennel Club has raised $188,000 of the nearly $643,000 in lobbying money spent to encourage legislators to expand the agreement, allowing non-Tribal venues to expand their gaming, according to a report this week in the Tampa Bay Times. At the same time, the Palm Beach Kennel Club would get slots under the new compact.Health care and the environmentOther issues legislators address this session are equally as thorny, with complications both practical and philo-sophical. Over the issue of health care, for example, the legislative session came apart like a house of toothpicks in a high wind last year when legislators couldnt agree on funding for health care „ that happened after Gov. Scott rejected Medicaid expansion to pay for the care of as many as 800,000 unin-sured Floridians. Now, other federal funding for uninsured patients „ money that would ease the pressure on hospitals „ is declining by almost 40 percent (Medic-aid expansion is designed to cover that and more, but Florida doesnt have it). Floridas legislators, therefore, are wrangling new ways to save money and boost treatment options without hav-ing chosen the federal help many states have. One overarching goal for the House this session is to pass legislation that will provide lower cost and more transparent access to health care,Ž says Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, a District 78 Republican from Lee County. We have several bills. Mine has to do with recovery care centers wherein a person who has had surgery in a hospital or ambulatory care center can stay up to 72 hours to have the best opportunity to recover faster, so they can be monitored.Ž As it stands, a patient in such a care center must leave after 24 hours. Rep. Hudson, who as Speaker Pro Tempore files no bills himself (his job is to ensure that each bill is properly vetted, he says), is also chair of the powerful Health Care Budget Commit-tee. He describes the huge gravity of health care funding in the Florida bud-get this way: My priority will be to write a (health care) budget that con-sumes 42 percent of the state budget and exceeds $33 billion. My concerns include veterans, foster children, seniors, and others, along with a con-tinued focus on funding for Alzheim-ers research and care.ŽWater and environment questionsAnother thorny and complex issue, water quality, has long been significant in the state, and now its even more compelling for legislators as increasing levels of pollution and poor water qual-ity drive away tourists and investors, and kick up costs to residents. Water is big,Ž says Rep. Rooney. Not just protecting our resources „ the Everglades, and what to do with the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers, for example „ but finding some type of policy to guide us for the next 10 to 20 years. Water is like air and everything else we consume to stay alive „ its a finite resource.Ž Key in this session is a statewide water bill that passed in the first week, designed to make regulations more manageable, says Rep. Matt Caldwell, a District 79 Republican from Lehigh Acres. It streamlines Everglades regulations „ you have stat-utes from the 1970s when these protections were just focused in Okeechobee, and now its evolved to look at the greater Everglades mosaic, cleaning it up and so (the law) agrees with itself.Ž Two other elements of the bill „ a policy bill that does not come equipped with a dol-lar figure since funding springs from other sources „ include managing long-term water sup-plies as Central Florida grows, and preserving and restoring springs in North Florida. Now, says Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, a District 30 Republican, a key element is passage of a Leg-acy Florida fund, co-sponsored by her in the Senate and by Rep. Fitzenhagen in the House, to designate specific dol-lars over a 10-year period to Everglades and regional projects. Some 25 percent of this money will be dedicated for Everglades restora-tion and all the ancillary programs to restore our resources, to help us with the C-43 (reservoir) project on the Caloosahatchee, for example,Ž Sen. Benacquisto says. Some critics in the state remain frustrated with such progress. The underlying issue with me is that water quality compliance and enforce-ment in Florida is extremely lax,Ž says John Cassani, a water expert and head of a citizens interest group, Lee Public Voice. Thats what led to rampant statewide impairments for water quality in the first place. Weve always had excel-lent statutes pertaining to water quality in Florida, but if the political will to enforce them isnt there, those are just words on a page.Ž Closely related to those issues are two bills (House Bill 191 and Senate Bill 318) designed to take away local author-ity in banning fracking „ a move sup-ported by oil and gas companies „ and let decisions to allow it rest with state officials.Immigrants and beyondAnother issue facing legislators, one that exists in an echo chamber of national concerns just as gun rights and health care policies do, is the treatment of immigrants. There are seven anti-immigrantŽ bills, characterized as such by critics of those bills, filed by Republican legisla-tors this session, as well. One bill, for example, would make it a criminal offense for any who have been deported or ordered deported to remain in or return to the United States, whether or not they have chil-dren here. Another would require local law enforcement agencies to work more aggressively with immigration officials to detain illegal immigrants even when public safety is not an issue. A number of sheriffs departments have criticized this bill since it comes with no funding to help them do that. While there are many other issues and concerns „ and while disagree-ments are likely to be prevalent on some issues for the 160 legislators guid-ing the state this session „ all of them will work together in the capitol, which includes not just the historic building but a 1970s era 22-story executive office building directly behind it, designed by its architects to last a century. There much of the action takes place, and fortunately the architects included 66 public restrooms „ in case the pala-ver becomes too much for some. Thats politics in the Sunshine State.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 21-27, 2016 NEWS A9EAGLE RICHTER FITZENHAGEN BENACQUISTO ROBERSON HUDSON CALDWELL ROONEY Legislators in their own wordsSen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, R, District 30:My personal goals include, first and foremost, testing the backlog of rape kits that exist, some 13,000 across the state that have been untested for years. These are from victims, and we will no longer accept that they have to wait six years or more. Clearing that backlog comes with a significant price tag: we estimate $30 million. But well find a way to do it. I have a bill going for-ward to make sure evidence is submitted within 30 days from now on, to make sure this never happens again. Also, Rep. Dane Eagle and I have a suicide awareness bill, which provides teachers across every spectrum the training to identify this, and save some lives. Another important one to me is changing the practice of some insurance companies. Its been discovered that they were taking money for premiums and if a policy holder passed and their beneficiary knew they were the rightful owner of funds, they paid the claim. But in many cases the beneficiary does not know their name, and companies did not pay rightful claims. Nationwide, about $5 billion went to the right people, and in Florida alone $100 million was returned to ben-eficiaries, from 20 companies. My bill will catch in the process all those other companies that were not part of those settlements but are holding firm because beneficiaries dont know theyre beneficiaries. Thats not right.Ž QQQ Rep Matt Hudson, R, District 80:As we move forward, expect to see a very lively debate about the House proposal of a $1 billion tax cut. Additionally, well see a lot of discussion around the governors gaming compact with the Semi-noles. And there will be a great deal of discussion about fulfilling our transportation work plan and mak-ing our infrastructure strong „ everything surrounding the concept of keep Florida growing, and growing correctly.Ž QQQ Rep. Ken Roberson, R, District 75:A couple of issues are personally important to me. One is a bill that came out of my committee last year, and is re-filed again. We want to encourage direct primary care where somebody can contract with a local doctor for direct care, for a monthly fee, even though its not considered an insurance policy. Were trying to think outside the box to do things that allow us to expand health care and address the costs. Another bill Im doing is aimed at eliminating cremation approval fees that some counties and medical examiners are charging citizens when they prefer cre-mation. Sixty-three percent of us want to be cremated, and in such counties as Glades, Hendry and Lee, people are charged $50. Its higher in Broward and even higher in Miami-Dade. That shouldnt happen.Ž QQQ Rep. Pat Rooney, R, District 85:On the immigrant issues: Two or three years ago, I voted to give immigrants in-state tuition. From a business point of view, its a good idea, and allowing them to par-ticipate I thought was important. I want to encourage people to be the best they can be, because that will help the state in the long term. But with the environment were in right now „ with everything going on in the world „ immigrant issues are different. The House and Senate will be wary about doing much with immigration for this election year. But that doesnt mean something cant pop up. I would suspect, because its an election year and because of the political climate, that those super-charged issues might get a foot in the door, they might get a committee or two to hear them and then set them up for future years. But I wouldnt expect something like that to be presented to the governor for a signature now.Ž QQQ Rep. Matt Caldwell, R, District 79:Im encouraging our office of EDR „ of Economic and Demo-graphic Research „ to annually produce a report that outlines com-mitments and agreements the leg-islature made. To try to distill that into one report that says, Here are all our commitments. Our budget this coming year is in the $79 billion range, and the governor has proposed $1 billion in tax cuts. Im supportive of the manufacturing retail sales tax cut. One of the things Im interested in is civil asset forfeiture, where law enforcement seizes assets related to criminal activity „ most people picture the drug dealers Corvette. But the current law doesnt require law enforcement to make an arrest or get a conviction necessarily. So law enforcement isnt enamored of this, but its the right thing to do, to change that.Ž QQQ Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R, District 78:One of the biggest issues in Florida is water quality and Im a co-sponsor of the Legacy Florida bill. It would provide dedicated long-term funding for Everglades restoration projects, which would include our Caloosahatchee. (The amount would be $200 million over 10 years, with $100 million desig-nated for the Comprehensive Ever-glades Restoration Plan, or CERP projects.) The Legacy Fund would make sure those dollars are specifically designated for the Everglades „ the money would be put toward completion of existing and new projects on the drawing board to help fix the Everglades. We shouldnt have to fight for each and every project. Now we can prioritize our projects based on what would be the most effective way to complete them.Ž QQQ Sen. Garrett Richter, R, District 23:Three things. First, I want to continue to advance common sense tort reform. There is an industry of certain lawyers that take advantage of well-intended consumer protec-tion laws to reap huge financial rewards for themselves rather than the consumer. These attorneys collect hundreds of thousands of dollars from insurance companies while the consumer gets a rela-tively small settlement. Insurance companies take risk and losses into consideration when establishing rates that all consumers pay for insurance. Lawyers that make these huge profits take money out of the pockets of all Floridians by causing higher premiums. I want to curtail this activity. Second, I believe we need to properly regulate the oil and gas industry. We do not need to shut them down. As a country, we need to become energy independent. That means we should encourage and support all opportuni-ties to increase our energy sources „ such as, wind, solar, waste, oil and natural gas. The legislature cant stop tech-nology but it can regulate technology advances Im talking about fracking. I do not support a permanent ban on oil exploration and extraction in Florida. Oil has been extracted from the ground in Florida for over 60 years. Advances in technology, such as fracking, need to be safe. In order to ensure that, it needs to be properly regulated. Today, it is not. A priority for me is to establish a specific permitting process through the DEP, to initiate a scientific study of the geology and hydrology in Florida in order to provide DEP scientific facts to create rules to go along with specific permit-ting. The legislation also increases fines and bonding requirements and it increases the regulatory powers to do more thorough background checks on companies, and to act accordingly. This bill also establishes a moratorium on fracking until the study is completed and the Department of Environmental Protection has developed and adopted the rules. Third, I want to successfully advocate for the reestablishment of funding for the Collier County Accel-erator. This accelerator funding got caught up in the political fallout last session. This is a very successful economic engine for Southwest Florida, recruiting over a dozen companies from France and Hungary and Fin-land. These companies are moving their headquarters here and creating job opportunities in Florida.Ž QQQ Rep. Dane Eagle, R, District 77:House Bill 1299 relates to public assistance and makes several revisions to the Temporary Aid to Needy Families program to encour-age work, focus aid to the truly needy by strengthening eligibility and reduce waste, fraud and abuse. This bill will help eliminate fraud and ensure that tax dol-lars are only being spent on the truly needy „ not those trying to manipulate the system or that are able to support them-selves. We need to bridge the gap to self-sufficiency instead of perpetuating government dependence. Also filed for the 2016 Session is HB 1305 which will help get epinephrine auto-injectors into schools where they are needed most by children who may suffer from life-threatening allergic reactions. Experts have estimated that one out of 13 children in the United States has a food allergy. Under the provisions of HB 1305, public and private schools would have the option to receive epinephrine auto-injectors for free or at reduced prices.Ž „ (From a press release)

FEBRUARY 22 – 28 k$PHULFDQ+RQGD0RWRU&R,QF HEALTHY LIVING Early onset bipolar disorder often is difficult to diagnoseGloria was afraid to take the call. She knew if her son Maxs teacher called her it would not be with good news. Sure enough, Max had had another meltdown. Max apparently had shoved a classmate, who had fallen and fractured his elbow. Although there were some days that Maxs sunny side would show through, those days were now few. Volatile incidents and unprovoked angry outbursts had become the norm. Gloria worried that her other two children were becoming more distant and wary, noting how they retreated to their rooms without the slightest provocation. Gloria had consulted with her pediatrician, then a therapist, and the initial consensus was that Max was hyperactiveŽ and might benefit from medications. Gloria and her husband, Ned, had followed most of the recommendations. Although life seemed to improve for a while, things deteriorated shortly thereafter as Max began to exhibit much more concerning behaviors. Gloria and Ned were scared and discouraged. When they had nearly lost hope that the growing team of professionals theyd consulted would be able to come up answers, Gloria and Ned were told by a specialist that Max very likely had early onset bipolar disorder. So, what are parents to do when they know their child is facing serious emo-tional challenges „ but theyve been unable to come up with any realistic solutions? What if family life feels like its careening out of control and the experts theyve consulted have not been able to offer solutions or relief? Before learning of a definitive diagnosis and developing a treatment plan, some parents of children diagnosed with bipolar disorder (oftentimes after years of being medicated for other illnesses, or courses of therapy that have proved to be disappointing) feel as though the disease has wreaked havoc on their families ability to lead a normal life. According to The National Institute of Mental Health, bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. While the onset of bipolar disorder most typically occurs in ones late teens or early adult years, the incidence of early-onset bipolar disorder (prior to age 18) potentially affects more than 3 percent of children and adolescents in the United States. Many researchers believe the occurrence is even more prevalent. What is particularly troubling is that oftentimes, well-intended profession-als have tremendous difficulty prop-erly diagnosing this disorder, especially when bipolar disorder symptoms resemble (or coincide with) other dis-orders, including attention deficit dis-order, obsessive-compulsive disorder, learning disabilities, or even develop-mental disorders related to autism. The symptoms of bipolar disorder are different from the normal ups and downs that all of us will go through from time to time. Those individuals with bipolar disorder will usually expe-rience intense emotional states that occur in distinct periods called mood episodesŽ „ which are a severe change from a persons usual mood and behav-ior. An overly joyful, or overexcited state (sometimes with symptoms of rac-ing thoughts, irritability, sleeplessness or recklessness) may be evidence of a manic episode.Ž A depressive episode may be characterized by an extremely sad, lethargic or hopeless state. Some-times, there will be a mixedŽ episode of both manic and depressive symptoms. The mood episodes may vary in dura-tion, with extreme changes in energy levels, activities, sleep and behavior. Its not uncommon for those suffering from bipolar disorder to be resistant to get-ting help. Some children who have severe or improperly treated bipolar disorder may have difficulty maintaining friendships or functioning in school. These young people may feel unable to control their emotions and behavior, feeling demoral-ized and helpless to repair the tremen-dous upheaval left in their wake. Tragically, the illness has a very high mortality rate because it is often the driving force behind self-medication, chemical dependency, risky behavior and suicide. Families and profession-als are often on high alert to maintain safety, and will be advised to reach for assistance, or to dial 911, should there be any signs of danger. While the above report may sound grim, on the contrary, early onset bipo-lar disorder can be treated, and children with this illness can lead full and pro-ductive lives. Proper treatment helps many young people with early onset bipolar disor-der „ even those with the most severe forms of the illness „ gain better con-trol of their mood swings and related symptoms. But because it is a lifelong illness, long-term, continuous treatment is needed to control symptoms. Treat-ment usually consists of medication management and supportive psycho-therapy, helping patients and their fami-lies to cope maximally. In additional to these important treatment components, those who fare the best are the ones who make a commit-ment to maintaining self-care „ bal-anced diet, exercise and sufficient sleep, and a balanced lifestyle of work and lei-sure that is designed to minimize stress. There are many supportive professionals and community resources avail-able to help families make the difficult decisions. Informative online and com-munity support groups are now offering a resource of hope and understand-ing. Q linda

Jan Kranich, president of Holy Ground Shelter, said in a prepared statement that the highlight of the event is sharing the exciting progress our organization has made in just four short years of operation and how the lives of our young moms have been changed by the love and com-mitment of the dedicated volunteers and staff members who work hands-on with each family.Ž On hand to celebrate these successes and ensure Holy Ground's continued suc-cess will be co-chairs Donna McLoughlin and Krista Bernard, honorary chairper-son Herme de Wyman Miro and the honorary committee members: Beverlee Miller Raymond, Edith Bush and Cheryl Gowdy. Michael Williams, WPTV-5 News anchor, will emcee this event along with Bob Nichols, who will act as auctioneer. Holy Ground Shelter provides a home and hope to homeless pregnant and par-enting teens and adult young women and their children. Through this long-term and multi-faceted program, the young mothers learn responsible living, parent-ing, and essential life skills, while they complete high school and transition to college or vocational school, always with the on-going support and guidance of trained, adult female mentors. While in the program, the clients work part time and contribute part of their income toward rent and utilities. Accountability is key. The goal of Holy Grounds program is long-term generational change, by teach-ing these young women to be self-suffi-cient, healthy and productive members of this community. The donation, which includes the cost of the luncheon and auction, is $100 per person. For reservations, call 355-5040. For more information, see or call Jan Kranich at 512-2650.

The funds will support Alzheimer's drug discovery research at the Scripps Research Institute. The United States spends approximately $200 billion a year on Alzheim-er's disease. This is the yearly economic burden; the emotional burden on indi-viduals with AD and their family and friends is incalculable. Current treat-ments for AD have minor efficacy at best. Thus, new and effective drugs, or neurotherapeutics, are needed to help individuals with AD, their families, and our communities. With the support of the Lottie French Lewis Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, scientists will leverage the intellectual strength of the Department of Neuroscience at Scripps Florida to help meet this critical need. Several promising avenues of exploration are being pursued to discover new and effective therapeutics. This crucial stage of discovery will include the basic science research of develop-ing and implementing assays (an analy-sis for the determination of a drugs potency or composition) that might be developed into drugs with efficacy for the treatment of Alzheimer's. The lead compounds that are discovered will be tested in animal models (mice) with Alzheimer's disease to determine whether they are effective and safe. Over the longer term, the compounds will be moved along the drug discov-ery pipeline in collaboration with other institutions for human clinical trials. The funds are supporting the drug dis-covery efforts of four faculty members in the department: Dr. Baoji Xu, Dr. Srini Subramaniam, Dr. Sathya Puthanveettil, and Dr. Ronald Davis. Dr. Ronald Davis, chair of the Department of Neuroscience said, Support from the Lottie French Lewis Fund pro-vides crucial funding for our Alzheim-ers drug discovery efforts and we are extremely grateful for their generosity. Working with Danielle and Renee from the Community Foundation has been a great experience.Ž The Community Foundation awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. "This $100,000 grant awarded for Alzheimer's drug discovery research is a perfect example of the important work Lottie French Lewis desired to continue when she set up her endowed fund at the Community Foundation. She would be proud to support such great work by Scripps Florida and we are happy to carry out her charitable wishes in per-petuity,Ž said Danielle Blangy Cameron, vice president of Personal and Family Philanthropy. Lottie French Lewis resided in West Palm Beach; after she died in 2009 turned her passions into an everlasting legacy. Finding a cure for Alzheimers disease was a passion for Mrs. Lewis. She lost a husband because of complica-tions from Alzheimers and saw the dev-astation the disease can have on aging individuals and their loved ones.

No one likes to see or be seen with bulging varicose veins, purple discolorations, or swelling of the legs. Appearance alone however is not the medicalŽ reason to seek treatment of this very correctable condition. The real reasons for seeking treatment are much more complicated than that. First and foremost is the fact that varicose vein disease is progressive. As time passes, these veins will get larger, more unsightly, and even dangerous. The typical progression is from a red cluster discoloration (or spider veins), to a bluish, slightly bulging veins. If left untreated at this point, you could be looking at ropey, bulging veins, swelling and finally open sores and ulceration. This progression is preventable, and once present can be reversed with proper treatment. Research has shown that as we age, the presence of varicose veins can increase the risk of blood clots (thrombosis) by as much as thirty times the normal population. As we age, we become less active. This can be a dangerous combination that often sets the stage for serious complications. VENOUS DISEASE PROGRESSES OVER TIME Thomas Ashtonashtonota@aol.com3365 Burns Rd.,Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410561-630-6800ASHTONVEINCENTER.COM MONEY & INVESTING It’s not just China playing havoc with equities When I was thinking of moving here in 2014, it was May and the weather was just awful. It was in the upper 90s with daily showers and a sun beating down on you that made it feel like if you spit on the pavement, it would boil away in a matter of seconds. Why would anyone move down here? The answer, I was told, was the winter „ 60 to 70 degrees every day without a cloud in the sky. Well, what happened? As I am writing this article, a sailboat is floating in our store s parking lot in 4 feet of water after it has rained for the last five hours straight. The cause of this, I am told, is El Nio, which apparently is a complex set of circumstances centered on a country on another continent. As if that explains why it is raining here in Florida. Well, similar to the weather, the stock market continues to perform in a way not really appreciated, with stocks getting hammered once again. As I am writing this article on a Friday after-noon, the DOW is down more than 430 points. What is going on? The answer, I am told, is China, which is a complex set of circumstances centered around a country on another continent. As if that explains why the stock market is crash-ing here. Just like all of our weather cant be blamed on El Nio, all of the volatility in the stock market cannot be blamed on China. There are other factors at play causing the recent pain to equity inves-tors. First, you have oil falling below $30 a barrel for the first time since the financial crisis in 2008. And before that, it was in 2000 with the bursting of the tech bubble. So I guess this is what we have in store for us every eight years. But we have a little bit of a chicken/egg question with oil prices. Are low oil prices the cause or the effect of this cri-sis? In other words, are falling oil prices due to an oversupply of crude causing a global economic slowdown as com-panies pull back spending/investments in everything from steel production to housing in oil producing countries and states? Or are low oil prices simply an effect of a slowing global economy and the resulting low demand for energy? Regardless of the answer, low oil is defi-nitely spooking Wall Street. Another potential problem that isnt so obvious is deflation across the globe. Almost every inflation gauge in the last few months (including the one most recently released) shows flat to falling prices. Now you may be asking yourself how is that a bad thing that everything is less expensive. Well, the answer is that if you are the CEO of a major cor-poration or a small business owner and you can never raise prices for the goods or services that you sell, you probably wont be able to hire new workers or give raises to the workers that you have. This is one of the key reasons that wage growth is so stagnant here in the U.S. And with the dollar getting stronger and stronger against almost every other currency, cheaper and cheaper foreign goods will continue to flood into the U.S., pushing prices even lower. So what is an average investor to do right now? I am not in panic selling mode yet. There is a lot of bad news and fear priced into the market right now and I see no reason to join the selling. But I am certainly not calling a bottom right now. If I have money I want to put to work at this point, I am definitely going on the defensive with industries such as tobacco companies, the biggest box retailers, and consumer staple com-panies. I would stay away from consum-er discretionary stocks and especially luxury brands as trillions of dollars of wealth are being destroyed, especially in places such as China, Russia and the Middle East, where these brands count on future growth. But if you are close to retirement and need capital to live off of in the next five to 10 years, it may not be a bad time to pull some money out, even after this downturn. Some research ana-lysts are calling for another 10 percent or 20 percent decline in equity markets this year and others are even calling for a bear market starting now to last a number of years. While I am not in that camp, it is a definite possibility. J ust like rain in January.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A21 SECTION WEEK OF JANUARY 21-27, 2016 SEE MARKET, A22 XThe Florida region of the Whole Foods Mark ets Core Values charity donated more than 1 million pounds of food statewide in 2015, the company announced. Whole Foods aims to serve and support its local and global commu-nities, the company said in a prepared statement. In addition to the companys pledge to give back to local communities through the support of purchasing from local growers, Whole Foods Market is also focused on encouraging and supporting healthy eating,Ž said Karen Doyle, Whole Foods Markets regional healthy eating and green mission specialist, in the state-ment. No group within our community should go unnoticed.Ž The feat was made possible through Whole Foods Markets partnership with Food Donation Connection, an interna-tional organization that manages food donation programs and provides an alternative to discarding surplus food. Since solidifying the partnership in April 2015, all 24 Whole Foods Market locations in Florida have jumped on board and partnered with a total of 65 charities and organizations, which are overseen by Food Donation Connec-tion. Our role is to visit Whole Foods Markets locations, and through edu-cation, work with the staff to identify what can be donated and how to safely package and handle it,Ž said Steve Dietz, Food Donation Connections director of business development. After that, we connect the stores with their local organizations in need of aid.Ž In addition to coordinating daily pickups to the store, Food Donation Con-nection tracks every pound of food to maintain quality standards. Food Donation Connection initially approached Whole Foods Market for their prepared foods,Ž said Mr. Dietz. Once we toured the stores, we both dis-covered a greater opportunity to help by tapping into all their departments.Ž At Whole Foods Market, no division gets overlooked when it comes to serving the community. Everything from bakery, grocery, frozen food, meat, seafood and even dairy is donated. For example, leftover food from the days hot bar is properly cooled and frozen, ready for next-day pickup by the orga-nizations. Nonfood items are also added to the mix, including Whole Body life-style products, flowers and magazines. More than half the food Whole Foods Market donates is produce (22 percent), dairy and cheese (26 percent) and pre-pared foods (13 percent). Produce, dairy and cheese, and prepared foods are key categories due to their nutritional value and its a food group that seldom gets donated,Ž said Ms. Doyle. The Food Donation Connection coordinates daily pick-ups which enables us to donate these per-ishable foods.Ž Every day, local organizations take turns visiting the store and picking up supplies for their community. Organi-zations aided throughout the Sunshine State include the Salvation Army, Help-ing Hands and Lighthouse Mission. In addition to feeding the hungry and keeping the food waste out of the land-fill, Whole Foods Markets partnership with Food Donation Program is a sense of pride among the companys team members. Last holiday season, Whole Foods Markets regional team spread holiday cheer by visiting local charities and delivering donations. Whole Foods Market is continuing its work with Food Donation Connection this year, and is aiming to donate anoth-er 2.5 million pounds by December. For more information on Food Donation Connection, see Q Hamilton Jewelers is joining forces with hau te couture jewelry designer Alexandra Mor. Hamilton will host a personal appearance event Feb. 4 with Ms. Mor at the Worth Avenue store in Palm Beach. The collection expresses strong lines, powerful and bold gemstones incorpo-rated with curvy silhouettes and a soft palette of colors „ with such names as Coral, Pink, Pearl, Golden-Wheat, Lilac-Aqua and Green-Mint „ that combine stones such as rose quartz, moonstones, coral, Andean opals, pink opals, baroque pearls, aquamarine and diamonds. We are truly delighted to have Alexandra join Hamilton for her Palm Beach launch. Her creativity and design inspiration are unequaled and her work is extraordi-nary,Ž Hank Siegel, Hamilton president, said in a statement. Each piece is designed and handcrafted in Ms. Mors New York studio and offers rare, gemstones juxtaposed with 18k yel-low gold and platinum along with the knife-edged wire and yellow gold inte-rior lining that is incorporated into every piece as a retrospective to the past.Ž There is so much about the history and current story of Hamilton Jewel-ers that coincides with my personal and brands values and story,Ž Ms. Mor said in the statement. In my work I strive to conserve the human experience and so it was only natural to join the Hamilton family in Palm Beach this winter to create this special event.Ž A private cocktail reception is set for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 4 at Hamilton Jewelers, 215 Worth Ave., Palm Beach; 659-6788. Q The Club at Ibis „ formerly Ibis Golf & C ountry Club „ has been a warded the prestigious Distinguished Emerald Club of the World award, as determined by the annual Distinguished Clubs of the World award program conducted by BoardRoom magazine, one of the most respected trade publications serv-ing private clubs. The Club made the announcement in a prepared statement. Wed like to congratulate The Club at Ibis for earning Distinguished Emer-ald Club status,Ž said John Fornaro, pub-lisher of BoardRoom magazine. Special recognition also goes out to The Club at Ibiss general manager, Stephen J. LoGiudice, as well as the clubs board of directors, its department heads, and entire staff for their efforts in providing an excellent member experience.Ž For fine private clubs that operate at the highest standards, BoardRoom magazines Distinguished Clubs award program uses a club-specific rating system that recognizes the club, its management, and its staff based on a proprietary criteria and evaluation pro-cess that distills and measures a clubs member experience. As such, the rating system used by Distinguished Clubs is different from any that has come before, and with it, the private club industry now has the means to identify the top private clubs based on the most important aspect member experience.BoardRoom also named Peter A. Miller, president of the Ibis board of direc-tors, as one of the top 22 Private Club Presidents of the Year. Our goal is to enhance the active lifestyle of our existing and future members, and our new Clubhouse and Sports Village will provide a multifac-eted resort experience,Ž said Mr. Miller, in the statement. Ibis is a secure, gated collection of 33 distinctly different neighborhoods, located on the quiet edge of northern West Palm Beach and just minutes from the heart of the city. It is adjacent to the pristine Grassy Waters Nature Preserve, a 12,000-acre, state-protected preserve, with wild-life, birds, and tropical vegetation. The Clubhouse recently completed a major enhancement and expansion to include three new dining venues and banquet accommodations up to 450 members. A new Sports Village opened in 2014 to include fitness facilities, pools, a 4,100-square-foot spa, and a yoga wall. The Tennis Center holds friendly tour-naments and weekly group play. Golf is center stage and offers 54 holes of golf on three renowned Nick-laus golf courses. Top golf instruction is headed by Martin Hall, ranked by Golf Digest as one of the games Top 50 instructors.

The North American Interna-tional Auto Show is our time to peek into the crystal ball to see what the automakers see in the future. There are plenty of dream cars with sheet metal that defies gravity, and vehicles that drive themselves home. But this event is also a time to showcase what will be arriving at your local dealer as soon as the next few months. The best part of it all is that some of our daydreams will actually be a reality in 2016. Q Volvo S90 „ Volvo is taking maximum amount of self-driving technology legally available and making it standard on its new flagship sedan. This luxu-ry car s second-generation Pilot Assist program will let you cruise at 80 mph with your hands off the wheel (if you dare!) and still come to a complete stop on its own. Q Fiat 124 „ This is the classic Fiat roadster name and new body panels wrapped around the bones of a Mazda MX-5. It is certainly not as pretty as the car from Japan, but now theres a way for those socially embarrassed by the Miata to still get that cars legendary handling and bulletproof-build quality. Q Chevrolet Bolt „ Electric cars are hard to accept because of limited battery range and high prices. Chevys new Bolt EV promises 200 miles on a full charge (enough to cross Alligator Alley and back). Its also expected to cost less than $30,000 after government discounts. Q Honda Ridgeline „ Honda has always had the most carlike of trucks, and that has not changed. This new one will still ride like a crossover, and have fun features like the built-in ice chest underneath the pickup bed. In fact, most of the fundamentals that made this the best pickup for those who only occasionally need a pickup have not changed. The difference with having a new one is the interior has gone from feeling a decade outdated to modern moneys worth of soft materials. Q Chrysler Pacifica „ The people who first taught us the word minivanŽ more than 30 years ago are now back with the newest one on the market. Chrysler did not reinvent the wheel. Instead, they have taken good features like seating for eight adults and on-board vacuum system, and wrapped it in a tastefully aggressive design. The Paci-fica cant hide its soccer practice prac-ticality, and thats because any attempt to make it more sporty would take away from its utility. Solid. Useful. Spacious. It is everything youve expected from the first name in minivans.

PALMBEACH BROKERAGE | 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 337 | Palm Beach, FL 33480 561.659.3555 | ABINGTON PRESERVE 3640 ACRE RANCH | $21,858,000 | Web: 0076559 Wally Turner | 561.301.2060 KOVEL: ANTIQUES The Kate Greenaway look was popular in the late 19th century BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Kate Greenaway (1846-1901), an English artist, often is called the creator of picture books. As a young girl, she drew watercolor pictures of children dressed in old-fashioned clothes in a nearby village. She created a pattern, made the dresses and bonnets and dressed models to pose for her drawings. The romantic style was immediately successful, and soon she was illustrating cards, calendars, books and almanacs, earning both fame and fortune. She soon started writing the poetry for her books. The Kate Greenaway look became so popular it was copied in dress patterns, dishes, napkin rings, glassware and, of course, picture books. Collectors today like the original books and drawings and also collect the lookalikes. The world she cre-ated reminds people of the joys of child-hood and more innocent times. So it is not surprising that a figural napkin ring sold at a James Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine, in 2015 for $533. It featured two Greenaway-type girls in a tree, and because it was a double,Ž it had added value. Q: I have an Avon apple-shaped candle holder that is about 50 years old. I ts goldpainted glass. The top half of the apple comes off so you can put a small candle inside the bottom half. Its about 5 inches high and 4 inches wide. Is it worth any-thing? A: Avon made this Golden Apple candle holder in 1968 and 1969. Avon started in 1886 as the California Perfume Compa-ny. The name Avon was used beginning in 1929. The company has made many figural bottles, jars, figurines, childrens toys, jewelry and other items. The Golden Apple candle holder came with a per-fumed candle and originally sold for $6. They sell online today for about $5-$15. Q: Id like some information about an Excel projector and Betty Boop movie I have that are over 75 years old. The movie is on a 3/4 by 3-inch reel that plays on an Excel projec-tor. The projector was lit with a G.E. bulb that has the words Mazda Toy ProjectionŽ on the top of the bulb. Im concerned that if the film or projector breaks, Ill lose both. What are they worth? If these have any value, I dont want my children to throw them out. A: Several companies made toy projectors and sold them with short movies. Cartoons and comedies were popular in the 1930s and 40s. Excel Home Movies of Toledo, Ohio, adver-tised a projector and 100-foot reel featur-ing Betty Boop,Ž Popeye,Ž Our GangŽ or other comic character for $3.95 in 1936. The value of your projector and reel today is less than $50. Q: I inherited a lot of stuff from my mother and grandmother. There are old pictures, a sewing machine, metal dolls, dishes, chocolate pots and even some things I cant identify. How can I find someone to help me decide what to do? Should I just dump them at a yard sale? A: Unless you have something of great value, a yard sale or garage sale works best. We hope your mother and grandmother told you if there was something of great value or had special meaning to your fam-ily in this collection of stuff.Ž Advertise the sale in a local paper and post a sign on your street. Make sure everything has a price sticker or tag. Set prices low, at half retail value. Similar items can be grouped together in a box to sell at one price for the bunch. Remember, shoppers like to bargain and expect to get a discountŽ on the price you set. Some newspapers offer a free leaflet telling how to have a good sale. Q: I have a bunch of old movie posters that were used outside of theaters. They include Singing in the Rain,Ž Hunt for Red OctoberŽ and several others. Are they worth anything? How would I sell them? A: Movie posters are easy to sell. Some sell for about $25 and many sell for several hun-dred dollars or more. Contact auction houses or dealers who sell movie memorab ilia may want to sell them for you. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 21-27, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The next adventure When my first book came out two years ago, I had the chance to peer into the New York publishing world, a strange place with sometimes unfathom-able rules and norms. There was one practice in particular I never got used to: How they handled goodbyes. When someone I had worked with at Simon & Schuster „ an editorial assis-tant or a publicist „moved on to another job elsewhere, the yd send out an email on the day of their departure. The mes-sages invariably began the same way: This will be my final day at S&S.Ž And they always caught me by sur-prise. I expected more. A dramatic build-up, perhaps. Some early warning. Maybe an offer to meet for coffee and hash it out, the way you would with a breakup. Now, finally, I understand their approach. Sometimes theres just no better way to say it. This will be my final Sandy Days, Salty Nights column. Ive been writing these stories for nearly a decade, working through the ups and downs of dating in my mid20s and now my mid-30s. A lot of weird things have happened to me along the way, and Im grateful that Ive been able to share them with you. This column has been a place for me to explore my personal truths, honestly and openly, in all their ugliness and grace. Im thankful to the readers Ive heard from along the way, those of you who encouraged me to continue when I lost my footing. Im sad to bring this column to an end but excited about what comes next. So? What comes next?My whole life, I wanted to be a writer. More specifically, an author. And even more specific than that, a novelist. A year ago, I began working on my first long piece of fiction. For months, I was afraid to call it what it was. Now Im deep into the writing of it, and I can say with authority, I am working on my first novel.Ž Its been harder than my memoir in many ways (like having to create a fic-tional world from nothing) but also easi-er in some ways (Im glad not to have to poke at my personal tragedies day after day). The plot line of my novel follows a teenage girl across Florida after she runs away with her fathers best friend. I keep telling people its not as scandalous as it sounds, but if you know anything about me „ and if youve ever read this column „ then you know thats a hedge. Its going to be very scandalous. This new book has me equal parts electrified and terrified. Which is why, of course, I want to share it with you. Beginning in March, Im happy to announce, the first chapters will appear on this page. Weve never done anything like it at Florida Weekly, and it will be an experiment for all of us. The truth is, Im scared as hell. But as someone wise recently told me, If youre not scared, its not worth doing.Ž Q „ Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried WidowŽ published by Simon and Schuster. artis h e my h ey u rA p s. b e fee o u n d n o d y e se d e, n d i dr. n m y I m keep telling people its not as scandalous as it sounds, but if you know anythin g recently told me, I n ot worth doin g .Ž „ Artis He of Unremarri by Simon and

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 21-27, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 award-winning artist best-known for shooting sexy swimsuit models in the publication s much-anticipated annual special edition will join nearly 60 other instructors sharing their stories and successes. Hes definitely one of the biggest, most important sports photographers ever,Ž said Fatima NeJame, president and CEO of the Palm Beach Photo-graphic Centre, producer of the event. He is just an incredible, incredible man.Ž Mr. Iooss received the festivals 2016 FOTOmentor Award in honor of his achievements in and influence on the profession. His work has appeared on the SI cover more than 300 times, and he has shot from the sidelines of every Super Bowl. This years game Feb. 7 „ No. 50 „ will be no exception. The award goes to someone who has been a significant mentor in the field of photography,Ž Ms. NeJame said, noting that, as the recipient of the award, he will select an emerging photographer for whom to give the festivals Rising Star Award. They are asked to identify an individual they feel is going to be as famous as they are someday,Ž Ms. NeJame said. Mr. Iooss picked Kohjiro Kinno, an SI colleague based in Huntington Beach, Calif. Its an amazing opportunity for a young person in the field,Ž Ms. NeJame said. The poet laureate of sports,Ž as Mr. Iooss is called, will appear in a com-munity lecture from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 21 „ one of 24 free festival functions featuring curators, editors and others who make their living behind the lens. I know Walters lecture is going to be packed,Ž Ms. NeJame said. Mr. Iooss also will be highlighted in a museum exhibition that runs through March 26 displaying 90 of the legends greatest images. His subjects have included boxer Muhammad Ali, NBAer Michael Jordan, surfer Kelly Slater and golfer Tiger Woods. The exhibition will kick off at 6 p.m. Jan. 21 with an opening reception. On Jan. 22, FOTOvision will take place on the lawn at the West Palm Beach waterfront. FOTOvision, billed as Palm Beach Photographic Centres Night of Pictures,Ž encompasses a 1-hour movie about photographs from around the world and the photographers who cre-ated them. The event debuted last year and was so successful that it returned for a second showing. Those who will talk about their innovative imagery on the big screen include J. Tomas Lopez, an arts professor at the University of Miami whose work hangs in the permanent collection at Biblio-thque nationale de France in Paris, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the Smithsonian Ameri-can Art Museum in Washington D.C. Brian Smith also is documented in the film. The Pulitzer Prize winner has cap-tured globe-trotting athletes, celebrities and executives for ESPN The Magazine, British GQ, Forbes and hundreds more magazines. Rounding out the list are Craig Blacklock, John Isaac, Lewis Kem-per, Scott McKiernan and Peter Turnley. The free and open-to-the-public affair gets underway at 8 p.m. On Jan. 23, renowned portrait-taker Michelle Pedone will teach students how to photograph Fido. Dogs often present difficulties in the studio, and Ms. Pedone will impart tips and tricks for fun accessories and props, proper composition and lighting and ways to get mans best friend mugging for the camera. I love her style,Ž Ms. NeJame said. Its very playful, very family-oriented, very friendly. Her photos are fabulous.Ž Portfolio reviews continue into the afternoon for working photographers interested having their style critiqued and evaluated by the best in the busi-ness. Its an opportunity for photographers to be able to show their work to all the different photo pros who are here at FOTOfusion,Ž Ms. NeJame said. A total of 30 FOTOshoots, each guided by a master photographer, aim to introduce students to such spots as Lit-tle Havana and South Beach in Miami, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach and Mounts Botanical Garden and the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. I wish I had time to attend,Ž said Ms. NeJame, who has been busy arranging FOTOfusions enormous schedule and organizing its 100 volunteers. I never have time to attend.Ž Everyone involved in the festival donates his or her time and talent to educate, encourage and inspire partici-pants and help spread the joy of pho-tography. One thing that we are very excited about is that this marks our 30th year of doing photography, but I think whats more exciting is that people are so thrilled about attending FOTOfusion,Ž Ms. NeJame said. She put the number of repeat attendees at 80 percent and repeat instructors at 40 percent. Because photography is an everchanging world, even people who have been participating in FOTOfusion for many, many years are excited to come back,Ž Ms. NeJame said. There is always something new.Ž Festival sponsors the Downtown Development Authority and Arts & Entertainment District have erected a series of banners along Clematis Street that show off the photography of FOTO-fusion instructors and tout the event. It helps bring awareness to FOTOfusion in general, as well as the Arts & Entertainment District,Ž said Teneka James, associate director of the Down-town Development Authority. As youre walking down the street, its visually impactful.Ž The authority formed a partnership with the center last year and saw great results in driving visitors to the down-town area not only to attend FOTOfu-sion but also patronize bars, restaurants and shops. For us, it was taking that partnership that we have with the Palm Beach Pho-tographic Centre to the next level,Ž Ms. James said. Im so glad theyre celebrat-ing 21 years.

FunderburkBuilbeauMeskoOrborneScheunemann THEATER REVIEW While the sound and fury of the Republican debate signifying nothing was raging Thursday night in South Carolina, the spirit of an unassuming man who truly represented American values was delighting an opening night audience at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre s The Will Rogers Follies.Ž But much of the social-political teasing that Rogers lazily unreeled for the audience resonates today with deafen-ing roar that is as much rebuke for our lack of progress as it is a gentle ribbing about eternal foibles of human nature. That was part of the shows wry appeal when it bowed in 1991, but its a bit dis-comfiting to be amused by that same paradigm a quarter-century later. But the news is that Maltz favorite Matt Loehr has returned in title role. That means we get more than a charis-matically folksy Will Rogers comment-ing from the sidelines, but one who can dance up a tornado alongside the most talented members of the chorus line „ thereby rocketing up the energy and the pizzazz level. Still, the virtues of director Mark Martinos joyous edition go far beyond being blessed with the irrepressible Mr. Loehr. He is matched in high watt-age by the lovely Laura Hodos as Wills loving long-suffering wife, Betty. The endlessly inventive choreography is matchlessly designed and performed, Helen Gregorys razzamatazz band is dead perfect, and the production values are impressive starting with hundreds of lavish Follies-style costumes rented from around the country and built in-house under the supervision of Gail Boldoni. The raw material was produced by a confluence of some of the most talented folks at the time: engaging music by the master Cy Coleman, deliciously witty lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and a book by Peter Stone that seems to be straightforward entertain-ment but actually slips in implicit mes-sages flowing underneath. All of it was originally overseen by Tommy Tune. The premise is that Rogers is retelling his life in a luxuriant Ziegfeld Fol-lies of the 30s complete with massive production numbers of showgirls clad in little or in stunning costumes. The Oklahoma-born poet lariat performs his monologues while twirling a rope or riffing wry observations based on the current days newspaper. (Every time Congress makes a law, its a joke, and every time they make a joke, its a law.Ž) The audience is awash in love songs, torchy ballads and tap dancing. The musical is a fantasy in which Rogers is dead and tells us often that he will die in a plane crash. Ziegfeld, also dead, is a disembodied god-like voice, coming over the loudspeakers changing facts to be more theatrical and enter-taining. He moves Will and Bettys first prosaic meeting at an Oolagah, Okla., railway office to the surface of the moon because its more showbizzy spectacu-lar. The whole show is unabashedly sparkle dust and hype. Ziegfeld insists that Rogers impossibly fancy wedding with its staged-wide train and showgirl bridesmaids be dis-played out of chronological order, and performed at the end of the first act because thats when wedding numbers always occur in Ziegfelds shows. Theres a huge amount of breaking the fourth wall and ignoring any pre-tense that they are not putting on a show in 2016. Mr. Loehr and Mr. Martino have updated some jokes (Obama and Biden go golfing. Bidens handicap is 20, Obamas is Biden.Ž) and inserted what seem like ad libs but are likely well-practiced references to Chipolte, long lines at the womens restroom and latecomers to the Maltz entering with walkers. Its delightfully daft that way. It rarely gets caught taking itself seriously. Yet its inescapable that Rogers obser-vations still are painfully relevant. A thoughtful audience member might reflect that Rogers affable approach (I never met a man I didnt likeŽ), his genuine desire to see people from three dimensions, his nonconfrontational way of criticizing human frailty, all of this is sadly lacking in the current atmosphere of division and discord. He is the exem-plar of the American character that we were once upon a time, or we hoped we were, or at least we wanted to be. None of this would work without Mr. Loehr, who won local hearts and Car-bonells for Crazy For You,Ž The Music ManŽ and Hello, Dolly!Ž He sings bet-ter than you realize and his dancing is mesmerizing. With a huge grin, a cowlick and an incessantly chewing jaw, he even looks a bit like Rogers. But his real asset is the joy that emanates from his eyes, his mouth, his body, everything about him. Ms. Hodos, just nominated for a Carbonell for her work in Actors Play-houses The Toxic Avenger,Ž proves for the umpteenth time that she is one of the best musical theater performers in the state. With that blazing personality and clarion voice, she conjures Ethel Mermans force of nature vivacity „ although Ms. Hodos is much prettier and a better singer as she proves in the torch song, No Man Left For Me.Ž A tip of the straw boater, too, to James Young as Rogers crusty father and Elise Kinnon as Ziegfelds chief leggy show-girl (and Mr. Martinos associate direc-tor). But if theres another star of the show, its the work by twice-Carbonell win-ning choreographer Shea Sullivan (The Music ManŽ and Crazy For YouŽ) and associate Dennis OBannion for expertly encompassing virtually every vaudevil-lian step and trope. From the pounding tap dancing in the opening number to the chorines seated minstrel-style with intricately kicking legs and tambourine hats, its both original work and a faith-ful homage. Visually, the set is dominated by a nine-step stage-wide stairway whose each step lights up in whatever colors and patterns are needed including an American flag, plus a kaleidoscope of lighting effects and projections.

To her, it doesn t matter so much what she paints, since she is mostly interested in the effect the light has on an object. Her mastery of the figure is evident in paintings of golfers on the green and little girls on the beach. She records her impressions in thick juicy oil paint, applied with gusto and bold brush strokes. I love to show the sunlight that creates lavender shadows on the white clothing of people walking by the waters edge deep in conversation,Ž Ms. Sander said. I like to show surfers and paddle boarders catching an aquamarine wave; boats at rest and on a journey; and sea creatures and birds that call Florida their home.Ž Ms. Sanders work is exhibited in juried shows, where she has won numer-ous awards and is represented in private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.

M1863C 7/12 Andrew Spilos | (561) 685-5845 | andrew_spilos@us.a” LATEST FILMS ‘13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesWith director Michael Bay, we ve come to expect the absurd. His movies „ a quartet of TransformersŽ head-aches, Armageddon,Ž Bad Boys,Ž etc. „ are often over-the-top blockbusters with excessive visual effects, inane sto-ries and wooden acting that cash in on the appeal of spectacle rather than the integrity of good storytelling. One senses hes trying to change that perception, at least slightly, with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Beng-hazi,Ž about the six ex-mil-itary operatives who hun-kered down to protect the U.S. Consulate and a secret CIA base in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. Theres cer-tainly action throughout, but its done in a way that feels gritty and real rather than gaudy and lavish. Its still shot in Mr. Bays sweeping camera, rapidly edited and hyper-stylized bravura, but the lack of excess visual effects allows the story and characters to remain grounded and realistic. Go figure: Mr. Bay uses restraint, and his movie is better because of it. Libya was a war zone in 2012, and the men hired to protect the U.S. Consul-ate and CIA base in Benghazi (which are about a mile apart) are essentially highly trained security guards: Three are Marines, two were Navy Seals and the other was an Army Ranger. They are: Jack (John Krasinski), squad leader Rone (James Badge Dale), Tanto (Pablo Sch-reiber, Orange is the New BlackŽ), Boon (David Denman), Tig (Dominic Fumusa) and Oz (Max Martini). With U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens (Matt Letscher) in town, militant radicals storm the consulate, which was unpre-pared for an attack. At great risk to themselves, the soldiers lead the fight against the insurgents before help arrives, which inexplicably takes a long time. Why there was so little action on the part of near-by forces is never fully explained, but should have been. Another shortcoming in Chuck Hogans script (based on a book by Mitchell Zuckoff): Were reminded too often that the men miss their families back home. We get it. The movie is 144 minutes, but easily couldve been 139 min. if Bay cut out all the scenes of tough guys talking about their kids. Mr. Krasinski (The OfficeŽ) does well in a dramatic action role, ceding the funny lines to Mr. Schreiber, whos amus-ing and an effective warrior. The rest of the cast is strong as well, but be warned of the violence: Toward the end there are some unexpected images that are grisly to the point of discomfort. The good news is the film earns these moments by esca-lating the danger as the 13-hour standoff wears on. Mr. Bay is cautious to steer clear of political points, choosing instead to focus on the humanity involved. Indeed, its not often that you see moth-ers and sisters and wives of dead bad guys grieving over their lost loved ones, but you do here in what forms Mr. Bays larger message: that war, killing, violence and hatred are awful and unfortunate and should not exist. Jack echoes similar sentiments, as do the other soldiers. Heck, how could any reasonable person not agree with that? Youll leave 13 HoursŽ having been engaged by the story, entertained by the action and in thought about the brave men who showed a strong, resilient spirit while saving the lives of nearly 40 peo-ple. Theyre real American heroes, and the movie tells their story well. Q dan >> Images and updates on the major gures involved in the story of "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" are provided prior to the end credits. The Revenant ++1/2 (Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter) Fur trapper Hugh Glass (Mr. DiCaprio) is left for dead by his fellow hunters after hes mauled by a bear. The cinematography is fantastic and Mr. DiCaprio and Mr. Hardy give stand-out performances, but theres a harsh unpleasantness about it that makes you feel like you need a shower when its over. Rated R. The Hateful Eight ++1/2 (Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh) Eight scoundrels are trapped inside a Wyoming log cabin dur-ing a blizzard, and not all make it out alive. Writer/director Quentin Taranti-no (Django UnchainedŽ) over writes and under edits, but darn if there isnt something deliciously cinematic about it. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES

ASK US ABOUT OUR INVISIBLE* HEARING AIDS!*Individual results may vary. Invisibility may vary based on your ears anatomy. There s always one question I hear when I set up at a show or lecture: What do I do with my stuff? Nobody wants it. Its a sad situation for many folks, and we can expect to hear more of it as Baby Boomers age out and downsize. None of us is getting any younger, and once we reach our 70s, it may be time to assess: Who gets what? And why? One of the hardest lessons one can learn when disposing of a loved ones effects is this: You cant keep everything. I recently lectured to a historical society. While I was there, a woman showed me a photo of a lovely table. She liked the piece and it was perfect in scale for any home or apartment. But she won-dered whether it was valuable enough to sell and pocket the proceeds. But this is the reality of a time in which theres a glut of furniture on the market: Most of it isnt worth as much as you might think, even in a retail setting. And its a time in which antiques have fallen out of favor as designers and customers tend to favor a look that incorporates pale sofas, soft rugs and the stark lines that make the most fashion-able of homes resemble hotel lobbies at times, according to an article in The Economist. Everyone lives a more casual life,Ž noted designer Bunny Williams told the magazine. And many successful decora-tors sell their own furniture lines, and now have a financial incentive to suggest new items, The Economist said. But you still have that furniture or other objects, right? Heres what you can do: Take a photograph. Envision a new use for the piece. A dresser that once was useful in a bed-room may work beautifully in a living room or a den. Downsizing? Use that photo to shop around for a dealer or consignment gal-lery that can get top dollar for your piece „ even if its not as much as you thought the piece was worth. Then put the photo in an album so you remember the piece. After all, most of the value we place on objects has more to do with memories than anything else. Thats what I told the woman at the lecture. If nothing else, at least you have the memories. Q scott SIMMONS COLLECTORS CORNER Keep or sell?

This clock, model 340, dates from the early 50s. We can date it to then because the name of the United Clock Corp. was changed to Sessions in 1956. Its design is so typical of the postWorld War II era „ forward looking and streamlined. The lights are shaded with atomic starburst-printed parchment.

End of the season sale is underway! 25%-50% o CONTRACT BRIDGE A step-by-step process BY STEVE BECKER The play of the hand is usually an orderly process based on the evi-dence declarer accumulates as the play progresses. As new evidence is introduced, declarer makes adjust-ments, if necessary, to his original plan. Take this deal where West leads a heart, taken by dumm ys king. South has three long suits to attack, but a little reflection should convince him that it is futile to try to establish the diamonds because the opponents are certain to score at least three hearts and the A-K of diamonds if that line of play is adopted. The spades also can be ignored for the moment because if they are divided 3-3, the contract is guaran-teed, while if they are divided 4-2, their establishment would lead to only eight tricks at best. Therefore, by a process of elimination, the suit to attack is clubs, where a 3-2 division assures nine tricks. Accordingly, declarer cashes the ace of clubs at trick two. When East pro-duces the jack, South carefully plays the eight in order not to block the suit if West started with four clubs. Declarer then leads a low club to the nine. If West wins, South has nine tricks so lets assume he ducks. The club suit having been milked dry, declarer abandons his original plan and shifts his attention to spades. The objec-tion to playing spades at the start is no longer valid because of the extra club trick gained in the interim. To guard against a 4-2 spade division and to maintain contact with both hands, South leads the spade deuce at trick four! This sequence of plays nets him nine tricks in the form of four spades, three clubs and two hearts, and the contract comes rolling home. Q

Book Broker Publishers. 324 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.This delightful and disturb-ing novel, set in St. Louis in the autumn of 1965, is essentially a coming of age tale focused on David Miles, a high school junior who defines himself as some-thing of an outsider. The year is significant, as the Civil Rights Act had gone into effect only one year earli-er, marking a kind of coming of age though a tortured one „ for the United States. It was also the time of a symbolic coming of age for the city of St. Louis, symbolized by the completion of the famous Gateway Arch, itself a symbol of a continent-wide nation. The book, which takes its title (and cover art) from viewing the arch as a symbol of ascent and inspiration, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the arch. How-ever, the crisis of race relations that is portrayed in the narrative has only amplified in this special anniversary year. One wonders: Perhaps David Miles has grown up a bit, but have St. Louis and the country really matured? When Douglas Findley, a new English teacher at Glendale Prep, challenges his students to widen their horizons by explor-ing beyond their comfortable neighborhoods, David is awak-ened to the sorry state of race relations and the enormous wealth and opportunity disparities in St. Louis. When Dorothea, his famil ys Afro-American housekeeper and cook who David feels is a second mother, is not invited to the wedding of his older brother, the hardened barriers between White and Black St. Louis are potently underscored. The portrait of David as a shy, sensitive, academically weak young man is ampli-fied and rounded by his many other rolls: neighborhood babysitter, stumbling seeker of young female companionship, dreamer, follower to nonconformist risk taker Jim, occasional assistant in his fathers furniture store, driver of Dorothea from and to her home in the coloredŽ district, brother in the shadow of the perfect sonŽ and older brother Chip, comforter to his cancer-plagued mother and aspiring writer. Readers come to understand that Davids main challenge is his low self-esteem. His sense of fair play and social justice does not fit well into the prevailing communities of social and racial prejudice and the group-think that nurtures belonging. Yes, the author develops an atmosphere of generational change, mainly glimpsed in Jim and in Davids girlfriend Amy. It is with Amy and some other young people that David joins a church-related group to perform good works. One generations normality is the next generations prison. The conventions and routines of the adults are the boring con-finements of youths eager to break out and define themselves. A teacher like Douglas Findley is at once liberating and dangerous. When Jim decides to trespass and climb the almost completed Gateway Arch, his fate underscores the danger. The ascent is not a victory, and the lesson David learns from it will help him rebalance his values. The titled, unnumbered chapters of AscentŽ make it read more like a series of independent vignettes than a traditional novel, even though the sections are bound by a tight chronology. It also reads like a reminiscence. Mr. Welschs style is generally smooth, never flashy. He gets the job done, especially with dialogue that allows vocabulary and speech patterns to bring his characters to life. Occa-sional flashbacks relieve the chronological march, providing a deeper understanding of the Miles family. The subordinate characters are nicely drawn and effectively varied. All in all, this is a successful first novel. It would be even more so with additional references to what is going on in St. Louis and in the wider world „ some-thing beyond popular culture allusions. However, Im sure that many of this Punta Gorda authors readers will like it just fine as it is.

Q „ Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Nunzio Billante developed a passion for cooking when he was 5 or 6, growing up in an Italian family in Pittsburgh. My grandmother was one of my early role models,Ž he said. My family is Sicil-ian and going to her house when I was growing up always guaranteed me a full bowl of pasta. Id be amazed, watching her make octopus from scratch. Food has always been a love of mine. And of my parents.Ž Chef Billantes parents moved the family to Miami when he was 10 to help his uncle run his restaurant, called Meat-balls. They hired me as a busboy at first,Ž he said. After school, it was my job to roll the meatballs. I worked my way into the kitchen at 15 years of age. I prepped food and learned all about Italian cuisine until at age 17 I hit the cook line.Ž After working at Meatballs for several years, Chef Billantes parents made another m ove, to Or lando, to open their own restaurant on International Drive called The Big Dish. From there, he moved on to cook at Universal Studios, then it was on to Chicago, where he worked under renowned Mexican chef Roberto Santibanez. He next returned to Florida to work for Big Time Restaurant Group eateries Big City Tavern, City Cellar and finally Roccos Tacos, where he was elevated to executive chef. He then returned to Orlando, where he was executive chef at the Mexican pavilion at Epcot in Disney World. He drifted back to the Palm Beach area when Kevin Tag-gart came knocking at his door. Kevin and I have been friends for about 12 years,Ž he said. Hes the general manager of Burger Bar and hes been try-ing to get me over here. He finally did. Ive been here since August.Ž At 4,500 square feet, Burger Bar is spacious and can accommodate 250-260 diners in a casual setting that highlights an industrial look, with red banquettes and stainless steel chairs. Chef Billante said he gets inspiration for his menu by constantly combing the region for ideas. Im a fat kid,Ž he laughed. I like to go out and eat. I look at new things and I get inspiration from different foods, different colors and interesting ideas.Ž Some of those ideas have translated into popular selections on Burger Bars Top Shelf BurgersŽ menu. One is called The Delicious, Hot Mess ($15), which features a cheddar cheese skirt, jalape-os, applewood smoked bacon, Swiss cheese and a blasting sauceŽ containing a mixture of Sriracha sauce, pineapple juice, lime juice and ketchup. A big seller on the sandwich menu is the Mediter-ranean Vegetable ($13.50), containing a massive grilled Portobello mushroom cap, marinated grilled vegetables, toma-to, provolone cheese, arugula and bal-samic vinaigrette „ all on a challah bun. Although his rsum is diverse, Chef Billante said he has yet to delve into French cuisine. Id like to get into the bistro-style French cooking,Ž he said. Things like fries done in duck fat and steak frites. These are very popular dishes in Europe and Id like to try them here.Ž Nunzio BillanteAge: 40 Original Hometown: Pittsburgh Restaurant: Burger Bar, Donald Ross Village, 4650 Donald Ross Road, Palm Beach Gardens; 630-4545; Mission: Our burgers are crafted from all prime beef and the secret to a great burger is an obsession with quality, execution and presentation.

Fortunately, with recent breakthroughs in modern medi-cine, patients are now able to have these conversations with their urogynecolo-gist. I have been repeatedly asked questions on this sub-ject, especially from patients who have had breast cancer and are receiving treatment to lower estrogen levels that have gone into menopause. They want to know whether there are any other options out there. My patients have told me how they were not prepared for the effect it would have on their sex life, that lubricants don t work well, and they cannot use the vaginal estrogens as they cause irritation and burning, not to mention that they are afraid of them, despite their doctors reassurances. One of the side effects of menopause that doesnt get discussed very often is the vaginal dryness and thinning of the tissues accompanying low estrogen levels. Symptoms may range from discomfort or pain with intercourse to recur-ring urinary tract or vaginal infections. While vaginal estrogens can be a safe and effective treatment, not everyone is able or willing to use them. Osphena is an oral medication, in the same family as Tamoxifen, designed to treat symptoms of vaginal atrophy (thin-ning and drying of the vaginal tissue), however, its effects on the uterus are similar to estrogen, and it may increase risks of blood clots similar to estrogens. It is not recommended for breast cancer survivors at this time. Fortunately, there is another option for vaginal atro-phy symptoms that has been shown to be effective and safe. The MonaLisaTouch laser therapy has been tested in Europe and the U.S. and has demonstrated significant effective-ness in relieving symptoms of vaginal atrophy. It is a quick, simple, and pain-free procedure that can be done without anes-thesia in the doctors office in just a few minutes. Sexual activity may be resumed in about 48 hours. Treatment consists of three sessions six weeks apart. Studies have demonstrated a dramatic improvement in vaginal blood supply, elasticity and tone following treatment. The treatment lasts for a year, after which a touch upŽ is usually needed for optimal results. Although the procedure is relatively new to the U.S., it has been used in Europe for several years and the data published from well-respected sources there and in this country have contin-ued to find evidence for its treatment benefits. Requirements for treatment include having an up-to-date pelvic/gynecologic examination, no current active vaginal infections or urinary infections, no his-tory of vaginal/pelvic radiation treat-ment and no active vaginal disease or recent vaginal surgery. At this time, because the treatment is relatively new to the U.S., insurance does not cover it. However, it provides a safe and effective alternative to hor-monal treatments.

Varicose veins easily eliminated BY JL WATSONLee Memorial Health System V eins carry blood throughout the body, providing an essen-tial element in keeping us healthy and alive. However, red and blue varicose veins running through legs can be unsightly, and for some, they also cause a great deal of pain. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin,Ž says Fort Myers Lee Memorial Health System vascu-lar surgeon John Moss, D.O. They develop when valves in the veins that allow blood to flow toward the heart stop working properly. As a result, blood pools in the veins and causes them to get large.Ž Varicose veins often stem from underlying medical problems. Laser vein surgery can be successful at eliminating problem veins for pre-venting blood from pooling in veins and causing vessels to swell. Follow-ing a minimally invasive laser proce-dure, which takes less than an hour, patients are able to walk without vis-ibly bulging veins. Anyone can develop varicose veins but it is common in women after pregnancy,Ž Dr. Moss says. We usu-ally treat with conservative therapy, such as leg elevation and use of compression stockings. Laser surgery is used to treat those not resolved with conservative therapy.Ž Ways to reduce the risk of developing varicose veins include: € Exercise regularly to improve circulation and vein strength € Focus on exercises to work the legs, like walking or running € Do not stand or sit for long periods of time. If standing, shift your weight from side to side every so often. If sitting, stand up and take short walks every 30 minutes. € Eat a low-salt diet rich in highfiber foods. Salt causes water reten-tion. Fiber helps regular digestion. Elevating the legs and wearing compression stockings also aids in prevention of or recovery from vari-cose veins,Ž Dr. Moss says. Varicose veins affect a large number of people and are easily treated. Dr. Moss recommends seeing a physician to address the pain and discomfort of this condition. While most patients seek surgery for cosmetic concerns and leg pain, laser vein treatments may also help prevent complications such as ulcers or blood clots,Ž he says. It is not an issue of vanity. This is a quality-of-life issue and one that, once treated, makes a pronounced difference in pa tients mobility, level of discomfort and overall health.Ž Q


C4 healthy living JANUARY 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTips for when it’s time for Mom or Dad to hang up the keys S ometimes our parents reach a point where it is no longer rea-sonably safe for them to contin-ue to drive. Diminished vision, slowed reflexes and impaired judgment can make driving hazardous „ hazard-ous not only to the elderly driver but also to passengers, pedestrians and other drivers. In addition, when an elderly person develops cognitive difficulty and mem-ory loss, there is a risk of getting lost in unfamiliar sur-roundings. We ve all seen Silver AlertsŽ on the highway and heard reports of older drivers found on the other side of the state or driving until they run out of gas. Determining when your parent should no longer drive and, equally important, persuading Mom or Dad to take that step, can be challenging. Here are some tips to make the process easier. The car is a powerful symbol. First, recognize that for an older person the car is a powerful symbol of inde-pendence and freedom. The prospect of losing the ability to drive is often seen as a threat to self-esteem and the sense of being in control. For this reason, be very sensitive and respectful in talking with Mom or Dad about giving up driving. Maintain trust. Second, try to maintain a sense of trust in your relationship. Be honest and persistent and encourage Mom or Dad to make the decision to reduce or stop driv-ing, depending on the circumstances. Offer an alternative. Third, always offer an alternative solution to getting out and getting around. Your parent might fear becoming iso-lated and unable to visit friends, go shopping or get to appointments. Talk to other family members and friends about arranging to take turns driving your par-ent where they want to go. Using local transportation services can also be a substitute. Most senior home care com-panies in this area offer transportation services for elderly clients. Involve a physician. Fourth, if you cant reason with Dad or Mom, it is a good idea to get his or her physician involved. Your parent might accept the judgment of a medical profes-sional over that of a son or daughter. This approach also has the advantage of taking a son or daughter out of the blame equa-tion. Physicians have reporting require-ments to the state if they consider a patient to be unsafe to drive.Use technology.Fifth, if you determine that Mom or Dad can drive safely as long as they stay on familiar routes and relatively close to home, there are new technologies that can be installed on their car to alert you over the Internet when they drive outside a defined perimeter. You can also enroll in the states Silver Alert system at The Palm Beach County Police Chiefs Association and Alzheimers Community Care are two local agencies that participate in this program. Don’t take chances.Finally, if you genuinely believe that it is dangerous for your parent to continue to drive, do not procrastinate or delay taking action. You have an obligation not only to them but to others whom they might put at risk. Q Irv SeldinPRESIDENT, VISITING ANGELS OF THE PALM BEACHES 561-328-7611 Study shows chelation therapy improves a variety of symptoms C helation therapy is a series of intravenous treatments that have been used for over 50 years to safely remove toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic, which accumulate over time in our bodies. When heavy metals build up in our bodies, they can cause symp-toms like memory loss or fatigue and can lead to cardio-vascular disease or cancer. A meta-analysis of over 22,000 patients who were followed using objective instru-ment testing before and after EDTA chelation showed that 87 per-cent demonstrated clinical improve-ment in their symptoms, mostly as a result of improved circulation. These benefits included improved circulation, reduced leg pain to walk-ing, less fatigue with improved energy, lowered blood pressure, better mem-ory and concentration, improvement in glucose balance, normalization of irregular heartbeat, lowered choles-terol, improved senses, reduced aches and pains in joints, reduced allergy symptoms, and an improved sense of well-being. A large seven-year study funded by the NIH proved chelation was clini-cally effective and safe when compared to placebo. It revealed a 50 percent improvement over placebo for diabet-ics and was published in JAMA and Circulation journals. For the past 20 years of administering chelation therapy to my patients, I have witnessed all of the above results. Personally, I have done chelation on myself, friends and family as it is so safe and improves my energy, focus, and sense of well-being. It has been a great pleasure in my medical practice to be able to help people with medical problems using chelation therapy. They are often able to avoid surgery and to get off of medi-cations after doing a series of chelation therapies. Please call my office at 744-2724 for more information. Q „ Dr. Bruce Dooley received his M.D. from Jefferson Medical (Phila.) and his M.S. from Villanova. He gives training lectures to physicians and the public on Functional or Integrative Medicine. His clinical experience in this field and EDTA chelation therapy spans 25 years and over 4,000 patients. Dr. Bruce DooleyADVANCED NATURAL MEDICINE561-744-2724ADVANCEDNATURALMEDICINE.COM


ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY JANUARY 2016 healthy living C5 Do you have a higher risk of breast cancer? TENET HOSPITALS A risk factor is something that increases or decreases your chances of developing a disease such as cancer. But just because you have one risk factor, or several, does not mean you will be diagnosed with the disease. A woman may have breast cancer for no apparent reason, while another may not even though her mother and other family members have been diagnosed with the disease. So, do you have a higher risk of breast cancer? Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, accredited by the American College of Radiology in mammography and breast ultrasound, wants to help you estimate your cancer risk by looking at a number of risk factors. € Being a woman. Women are about 100 times more likely than men to develop breast cancer. € Being older. Approximately twothirds of invasive breast cancers are diagnosed in women age 55 or older. € Inheriting certain gene defects. Between five and 10 percent of breast cancer cases are thought to be hereditary. The inherited gene mutation called BRCA1 and BRCA2 is the most common cause of hereditary breast cancer. € Having a family history of the disease. A woman s risk of breast cancer doubles if she has one first-degree relative with the disease and approximately triples with two first-degree relatives. € Having a personal history of breast cancer. A woman who has had cancer in one breast has a higher chance of developing a new cancer in either the other breast or another part of the same breast. € Being Caucasian. Caucasian women are more likely to develop breast cancer than African Ameri-can women, but African American women are more likely to die of breast cancer. € Having dense breast tissue. These women who have more glandular tissue than fatty tissue have a high-er risk of breast cancer. € Having certain benign breast conditions. Depending on the type of benign breast condition, a womans risk for breast cancer can increase one and a half to two times, up to four to five times higher than aver-age. € Having more menstrual cycles. Women who started menstruating before age 12 or stopped after age 55 have an elevated breast cancer risk. € Giving birth. Women who have had children have a lower risk of breast cancer. € Being overweight. Overweight women have a higher chance of developing breast cancer. Women who are concerned about their risks for developing breast cancer should talk with their doctor to learn more about the disease. They should also make sure to schedule their yearly mammograms. The digital mammogra-phy program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center uses low-dose technol-ogy to provide comprehensive breast services for screenings and diagnostic mammograms. In addition, the hospitals ultrasound guided breast services are designed for precise localization during a biopsy or aspiration procedure.

Patients and their siblings can also enjoy a childrens playroom as well as the Bears Den, a resting area named for Jack Golden BearŽ Nick-laus. One of our top priorities is making our patients and their fami-lies feel as comfortable as possible during their stay, so we strive to provide them opportunities for a bit of fun and respite during their time with us. For patients requiring surgery, the De George Pediatric Unit is uniquely equipped with two state-of-the-art pediatric surgical suites, allowing my colleagues to perform surgical pro-cedures using equipment and instru-ments designed for the smallest of patients. The De George Pediatric Unit will also offer a host of pediat-ric therapeutic services like physical and occupational therapy, employing the latest equipment and technol-ogy. Because we know this can be a stressful time, our Child Life Special-ist will be available on-site to help children cope with their hospital stay. The De George Pediatric Unit also represents the growth and expansion of the existing pediatric services Jupiter Medical Center and Nicklaus Childrens Hospital currently pro-vide together. In addition to our two designated pediatric ER physicians who are in place in Jupiter Medical Centers ER during peak times, we currently offer Telehealth technol-ogy in our Emergency Department, which allows our physicians to inter-act with Nicklaus Childrens Hospi-tal physicians remotely on complex cases. This gives them the ability to consult on patient care, colleague to colleague, in real time. Physicians in Miami can review images, lab results and vital assessment information, while discussing the patients diag-nosis and treatment plan.

Other drug use remains stable, including marijuana, with con-tinued high rates of daily use report-ed among 12th graders, and ongoing declines in perception of its harms. The MTF survey measures drug use and attitudes among eighth, 10th and 12th graders, and is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health. The survey has been conducted by research-ers at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor since 1975. For the first time, daily marijuana use exceeds daily tobacco cigarette use among 12th graders. Daily marijuana use for this group remained relatively stable at 6 percent, compared to 5.5 percent reporting daily cigarette smoking (down from 6.7 per-cent in 2014). Other highlights from the 2015 survey:€ Use of many illicit drugs has trended down. Among high school seniors, 23.6 percent report using an illicit drug in the past month, with 7.6 percent reporting they used an illicit drug other than marijuana. € Perception of marijuana use as risky continues to decline, with 31.9 percent of seniors saying regular use could be harmful, compared to 36.1 percent last year. € Past year use of synthetic cannabinoids (synthetic marijuanaŽ) is at 5.2 percent for 12th graders, down signifi-cantly from 11.4 in 2011, the first year it was measured in the survey. € Past year use of heroin, typically very low among teens, is at an all-time low at 0.3 percent for eighth graders, and 0.5 for 10th and 12th graders. € Use of MDMA (also known as Ecstasy or Molly), inhalants and LSD are generally stable or down. In 2015, 3.6 percent of seniors reported past year use of MDMA, compared to 5 percent in 2014. € Non-medical use of the prescription amphetamine Adderall, typically given for ADHD, remains high at 7.5 percent among 12th graders. € Use of prescription opioids continues its downward trend, with 4.4 percent of high school seniors reporting non-medical use of Vicodin (hydroco-done and acetaminophen), down from a peak of 10.5 percent in 2003. € Most teens abusing prescription opioids report getting them from friends or family members. € Cigarette smoking rates have greatly declined among teens in recent years. For example, among 10th graders, there has been a 54.9 percent drop in daily smoking in just five years, reported at just 3 percent this year compared to 6.6 percent five years ago. € However, rates of use of other tobacco products, while not significant-ly changed from 2014, remain high with 12th graders, reporting rates of past year use of hookah and small cigars of 19.8 percent and 15.9 percent, respectively. € More than 75 percent of high school seniors view smoking a pack or more a day as harmful, compared to 51.3 percent in 1975, the first year of the survey. € Roughly twice as many boys as girls report using e-cigarettes (21.5 percent to 10.9 percent). € Alcohol use continues its gradual downward trend among teens, with sig-nificant changes seen in the past five years in nearly all measures. € Binge drinking (described as having five or more drinks in a row within the past two weeks) is 17.2 percent among seniors, down from 19.4 percent last year and down from peak rates in 1998 at 31.5 percent.
