Register for a FREE Stroke Screening by calling 561-882-9100 901 45th St • West Palm Beach, FL 33407 | Members ofTenet Healths COMMENTARYYou, too, can fly among the privileged – if you pay the right priceMaybe you have seen the commercial on cable television. It features movie star Jennifer Aniston. She is 40,000 feet aloft in an airplane, on her way to some faraway destination that requires many hours of flight. We know she is suffering the con-sequences of her arduous trip. She is wearing a terry bathrobe, looking shopworn around the edges and not her glamorous self, searching high and low for a hot shower and a dry martini. Believe me, I have been there „ but who knew airplanes had showers to go with their martinis, and that not finding one ranks among the worst of travelers travails? It is out-rageous, really. How can that be in a 21st century world? The ad goes on to explain. In the next scene, Jennifer asks the flight attendants the whereabouts of the shower. Her beautiful brow is knit, and puzzlement is apparent all over her face. Looking slightly bemused by her inquiry, the atten-dants inform Jennifer she has made a tragic mistake. She is on the wrong airline. She is in mid-transoceanic flight on a domestic carrier. For gods sake,Ž Jennifer thinks to herself, How could I let this hap-pen?Ž The camera zooms in on her stunned look. This is the ads aha moment. The plot thickens: Now we understand the magnitude of Jennifers error: She is trapped for the dura-tion of the flight aboard a funky U.S. airline, and must travel the distance sans shower just like the rest of the unwashed. This brutal realization hits Jennifer like an assault on her per-sonal hygiene. Or, dare I say, like a cold shower. Cut to the next scene: Jennifer awakens abruptly and bolts upright. She finds herself in a full-length, cus-tomized-for-air-travel bed. She is sur-rounded by downy blankets, the roar of the jet engines muffled by the hard-wood paneling of her bedside media center. She is, of course, flying first class on her airline of choice, which happens to be the airline sponsoring the ad. We knew this was coming. The ad continues: Thank God,Ž Jennifer murmurs appreciatively. The absence of a shower on board was only a nightmare, a scary encounter with how the other 99 percent of pas-sengers travel. We are relieved she recovers from a rough night in such favorable cir-cumstances. Our empathy as a fel-low traveler is won. No wonder the poor woman goes searching for a stiff drink. We would, too. The ads last scene features Jennifer, martini in hand, commiserating with the barkeep serving first-class passengers in the on-board cocktail lounge. We presume she has had a hot shower and is totally refreshed. The camera takes in the full breadth of her luxurious surroundings. The setting could easily be the bar at the Beve rly Hills Hotel. Such is the life of the rich and famous. The ad leaves us feeling vaguely sad and depressed. On reflection, we understand why. We cant wake up from Jennifers nightmare. We are stuck in her bad dream, doomed to travel among all the other living dead on airplanes with no hot showers. The solution is clear: We must shun our usual choice of domestic carriers and book future travel on Emirates Airlines. Why didnt we think of this before? Here I had been, thinking for a decade or more that fat city on a flight was free peanuts, an aisle seat and space to stuff a bag into the over-head compartment. Having such ame-nities was almost as good as having the width of a Ritz cracker between you and the passenger seated in the next row up in front of your tortured knees. Or finding your checked bag-gage actually arrived with you at your destination. Then there is the ardu-ousness of all the pre-flight prepara-tions: shopping interminably on the Internet for the best deal. It is like winning the lottery when you score a ticket that doesnt require you leave your spouse behind. Maybe next time we can go together, you say. You send consoling text messages of wish you were hereŽ and post selfies on Instagram to keep your partner from entertaining thoughts of revenge on your return. Jennifers mode of luxurious travel smashes conventional wisdom that flying is absolutely no fun anymore, an endurance test for the tough and hardy. How can we expect anything better? This is a conveyance of mass travel whose profit margins depend on stuffing as many miserable passen-gers as possible into the confines of a metal tube sock with wings. But Jennifer got us thinking. Maybe we deserve a hot shower, too. Her mode of flying halfway around the world might set us back about $25K; but hey, thats only slightly more than a years income for a family of four living in poverty. Arent we worth it? Well, some of us apparently are, and for those who share this sense of privilege, Emirates Airlines is poised to serve, with hot showers and all. Everybody else can just get there the best way they can. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. She resides with her family and pugs in Jupiter. Email her at leslie

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEB 25-MAR 2, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYBlock an Obama nominationAccording to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the future of the republic tee-ters in the balance. Unless the United States Senate bows to the will of Presi-dent Barack Obama and approves his replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, everything we hold dear will be lost. A refusal to get with the program, Warren insists, would threaten both the Constitution and our democracy itself. It would also prove that all the Republican talk about loving the Con-stitution is just that „ empty talk.Ž This is the twisted view now prevalent on the left and in the media: It reads Article II of the Constitu-tion giving the president the power to appoint justices with the advice and consentŽ of the Senate as, in effect, an affirmative obligation on the Senate to consider and approve the presidents nominees. Might this wholly fanciful constitutional exegesis have something to do with a desire to replace Scalia, a giant of originalism, with another pro-gressive rubber stamp? Back in 2007, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a giant of clever partisan manipulations, all but pledged his life and sacred honor to blocking any further George W. Bush appointments to the Supreme Court „ and somehow democracy survived. Of course, Barack Obama can nominate whomever he likes to the Supreme Court. Of course, the Senate can block him or her. And of course, Democrats can call Republicans heedless obstruc-tionists and try to turn the public against them. This is the natural con-test between the political branches, which is a feature of the U.S. Constitu-tion, not a bug. At the fault line between the two elected branches, the nomination pro-cess is inherently political, and, inevi-tably, tensions will be highest when a president is about to leave office. The Congressional Research Service looked at rejected Supreme Court nominees a few years ago and concluded, Opposi-tion to the nominating President played a role in at least 16 of the 36 nomina-tions that were not confirmed. Many of the 16 were put forward by a President in the last year of his presidency.Ž No doubt, Republicans will take heat for simply saying noŽ to another Obama appointee to the court. But there will be none of the faux drama of a government shutdown, when the national parks are shackled and the media acts as if Americas national life is on the verge of collapse. The coun-try will be able to survive some 4-4 Supreme Court decisions, which affirm the lower-court decision. The Senate owes President Obama no deference or consideration. He has trampled on the legislative power at every opportunity, including attempt-ing to deem the Senate in recess on his own say-so (he lost the resulting Supreme Court case 9-0). His unconsti-tutional immigration and clean-power directives both have been held in abey-ance by the courts. If President Obama wanted a collegial relationship with the Republi-can Senate, he should have thought of that long ago. Now, he will pronounce himself shocked and saddened that Congress doesnt want to hold his coat while he remakes the high court. The Senate should hold firm, and let Eliza-beth Warren and her colleagues rend their garments and gnash their teeth. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONReflections on the New SouthHistory exists not in one, but in two places: the past, and at the point of the plow that cuts the hard dirt of whats to come. It rolls up fragrant and new like dark soil from the furrows of each deed and every thought shared by any of us with all of us. Especially in the South, whose history most of us know only in single words or short phrases: Slavery. Cotton and tobacco. The Confederacy, Robert E. Lee and Martin Luther King Jr. Black, white, civil rights, the Klan, jazz and blues, jasmine and magnolia, stars and bars. Shrimpers, growers, Seminole wars and Crackers. Storytellers, barbecue and Sunday-go-to-meeting. But the New SouthŽ is much more complex than that and far from new. It started in the 1880s, when a Georgia man named Henry Gates bought into and became edi-tor of the Atlanta Constitution newspaper. Mr. Gates coined the term, the New South,Ž before dying of pneumonia during the Christmas season of 1889 „ a South-erner born in 1850 who had seen bloody fighting as a teenager during the Civil War, and whose Confederate father had been killed by a Union soldier. Mr. Gates celebrated the end of slavery, the end of the old ways and „ he hoped „ the industrialization and modernization of the New South. He wanted it to join Ameri-can society seamlessly and without regret, becoming a more prosperous place, but a place where blacks would remain second-class citizens by nature and birth. As progress on the bumpy American road to equality and prosperity goes, it was a little step forward. But it was also the seedling notion not just of whats South-ern but of whats American nowadays in the New South: shopping malls, highways, chain stores and Disney. Air conditioning and sprawling suburbs and corporate farming and tourism. Southerners who sell their property to developers, then blame YankeesŽ all the way to the bank for alter-ing their moss-draped landscapes forever. For 151 years come April 9 „ that was the day Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox in 1865 „ the South has been struggling forward. So have all Americans. Were a people born with the DNA of change, but (especially in the South) change made in turbulence, a river at the confluence of memory and experience. And wed better be. They arent just Southerners who practiced racism, geno-cide, the tyranny of power and the use of lies and deceit to manipulate people weaker and less ambitious than European Americans. Blacks, native tribes and immi-grants of every stripe have felt the ham-mer of American ignorance and uncaring everywhere „ from Boston to Biloxi and from St. Augustine to San Diego. But the South, old or new, is not merely the confluence of culture and a history. Its also a sensuous geography, a landscape that bleeds into the character of its people, shaping their poetry and painting, or hot-wiring the music and storytelling of their broken hearts and their clannish pride and their potholed but steady progress. Many Southerners who come from the land or cherish it often carry a grace and clarity „ a willingness to see and remem-ber „ that strikes me as profoundly hopeful for the history of Americans still to come. I was reminded of that again last week when I came across a brief Facebook exchange between two Southern friends, both from farming families. Billy: Fog muffles sounds too, boy howdy I remember down in the cypress country, knee deep in the water, some-times Id stop to just listen to the great big ol drops of water dripping off the trees accompanying the songs of the swamp and the eerie muffled quiet of a strange and kinda melancholy moment of utter peace!Ž Bev: I love this! And after you stop moving for a few minutes the swamp starts to get so loud you cant hear yourself think. Every living thing seems to want to make a racket. And they all scream at each other in dissonant tones. Swamp symphony.Ž Billy: Those moments are like turning back the pages of time, a oneness with events, unchanged from the very beginnings.Ž Bev: It makes me feel invisible and reminds me Im just here for a moment. Im not the center of my universe. This was all there long before me and will be there long after me. Its comforting.Ž These are people with courage and humility, both. They will look out at the world, they will look inward at themselves, and they will weigh it all in the balance, like another Southerner I know, Woody Hanson. Mr. Hanson, a real estate professional whose grandfather knew more about the Seminole and Miccosukee Indians than any other white American, decided to get a masters degree in history at the University of South Florida at age 60, under the guid-ance of one of the nations premier South-ern historians, Professor Ray Arsenault. Mr. Arsenault is now about to guide Mr. Hanson through his final scholarly paper, The Burden of Florida History.Ž Such scholarship is a journey into the swamp, a different way of listening to those big ol drops of water dripping off the trees. Mr. Hansons title echoes another, in this case a book by the late American historian and Yale Professor C. Vann Woodward, The Burden of Southern History.Ž His friend and mine, Florida Weekly contributor Cynthia Mott, told me that. Ms. Mott also studied the history of Florida and the South with Mr. Arsenault and his colleague at USF, emeritus Prof. Gary Mormino. She inspired Mr. Hanson to do the same, he has said. In effect, all these men and women together are the point of the plow, the his-tory makers of something new, vibrant, but still deeply Southern. They will look out and listen, in scholarship or cypress swamp. They will share what they know. And everything will change and become new.

Old Dixie Hwy. l Jupiter, FL 33458 Coalition helps improve Riviera Beach housing project BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.comStonybrook Apartments has a stigma. The Riviera Beach complex that houses more than 400 low-income residents has one of the highest crime rates in the city, repeat incidents of violence and unsafe living conditions. A single mother of three who has lived in the rent-assisted project for four years overhears negative comments about her community all the time. In Walmart, in Publix, everywhere „ its always Stonybrook this or Stony-brook that,Ž 35-year-old Camille Bed-ward said. I dont want to listen to that kind of talk about the place where I stay.Ž Frequent fights, all-too-common shootings and other illegal activities long have plagued the Section 8 devel-opment. The first day I moved here, I couldnt even get my things into my apartment, and there was a fight,Ž Ms. Bedward said. I was like, Oh, my God. Ž Last year, a local nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life for needy mothers and children intervened. Community Partners, whose tag line reads changing the odds,Ž initiated an outreach effort with the Riviera Beach Police Department to establish a forum for residents. Representatives from the agency went door-to-door conducting surveys aimed at identifying concerns, fears and needs within the at-risk neighborhood. The police department became involved by cracking down on code-enforce-ment violations and requiring physical improvements to the property, including the installation of an entrance gate. Ms. Bedward, a proponent of the outreach effort who attends its monthly meetings, said the entrance gate will help curb violence by keeping out gangs. Im tired of the fights, Im tired of the violence, Im tired of my kids not being about to go outside and play like I want them to,Ž she said of her 2and 8-year-old daughters and 4-year-old son. The crime rate has gone down in the nine months since Community Partners stepped up, as evidenced by a drop in the total number of service calls coming into dispatch. According to the police department, calls decreased to 113 in November, from 161 in September. I feel that weve accomplished a lot,Ž Ms. Bedward said. Im fully committed to these things because I, for one, want more for myself and my children.Ž The monthly meetings draw about a dozen residents but more need to attend, she said. I just want the residents to open their eyes and realize what Community Partners is trying to do for them,Ž Ms. Bedward said. I just want the residents to see that Im not working against them, Im working with them. For the year 2016, we need to make our commu-nity become better.Ž Ljubica Ciric, director of client-outreach services at Community Partners, agreed more residents need to engage in the outreach effort for it to achieve success. We see it on paper, but the community knows what it needs,Ž Ms. Ciric said. The whole effort is based on the residents because we truly believe with-out the residents, we could not accom-plish the goal.Ž Community Partners provides mental-health services for families through the Parent-Child Center and classes for first-time homebuyers through the Housing Partnership organization. It also operates BRIDGES, a series of location-based programs funded by the Childrens Services Council of Palm Beach County that focus on protecting little ones free from abuse and neglect and ensure those entering kindergar-ten are prepared to learn. Through a partnership with Urban Youth Impact, which offers empowerment opportuni-ties for inner-city youths to keep them in school and out of trouble, a calendar of events has been created that includes everything from bible study to drum circles to financial tutoring. Other available resources offered by the coalition are afterschool activities, GED preparation and health-and-nutri-tion workshops. A lot of times, what happens is people put in place services that are not wanted or needed,Ž Ms. Ciric said. The residents took a stand.Ž Safety and security remain the No. 1 issues at Stonybrook Apartments, located in the heart of a municipality that aver-ages more than 1,300 crimes annually and ranks in the 14th percentile of the safest places to live in the United States, reports the NeighborhoodScout Web site. Theres so much toxic stress,Ž Ms. Ciric said. There are so many things against them that are generational, in a way „ lack of resources, lack of parent-ing, mental-health ailments, financial issues. They are good people, and the want a normal living environment, so were going to help them get that. Thats why were there.Ž Cleveland Wester, Community Partners director of targeted case manage-ment, said the monthly meetings have given residents the voice they never had. We want the community to see that you can make it, whatever your difficult situation is, but youve got to work at it,Ž Mr. Wester said. We are trying to coach them to be respectful of one another but take charge. That is our goal for these meetings.Ž The police department has prescribed several crime-fighting measures for Stonybrook Apartments, such as more communication between the man-agement company and officers in addi-tion to regular updates on the progress of complying with code-enforcement violations. The police department is working cooperatively with the new manage-ment of Stonybrook Apartments in an effort to bring about positive change within that community,Ž department spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown said. Were all working cooperatively with them because, obviously, we want to reduce calls for service and we want to increase the residents feeling safe at Stonybrook and all over this city.Ž Q “The first day I moved here, I couldn’t even get my things into my apartment, and there was a fight.

The Chinese calendar proclaims this the year of the red fire monkey. At our house, it appears to be the year of the lame dog. Keeper started limping during a walk last month. A veterinary exam found some slight muscle atrophy, but X-rays didnt show any degenerative changes that might indicate arthritis. His limping may have been due to an unusually long walk after a holiday layoff „ the well-known weekend warrior syndrome. Then Gemma took a tumble down the stairs. She immediately got up and shook herself off. We counted ourselves lucky that she didnt seem to have any damage, but about 10 days later we noticed a reluctance to climb the stairs (she gets carried going down) and some slight difficulty scratching her ear with a hind leg. Off to the veterinarian she went. The diagnosis was arthritis, not unusual in a 16-year-old dog. In both cases, the remedy was rest and pain relief. Both dogs were back to normal within a few days. But lameness can be more serious in both dogs and cats. Heres what you should know if your pet starts having trouble walking. Q Arthritis. This painful degenerative joint disease affects most dogs and cats as they age. Large breeds or over-weight animals are at highest risk, but pets of any size can become arthritic. Animals with arthritis may be reluctant to go up or down stairs, unwilling to jump on or off furniture, move sl owly and stiffly as they rise from the floor, or wince when you pet them. If you notice any of these signs in your pet, ask your veterinarian about medication or other therapies that can help, such as acu-puncture, massage and weight loss. Q Heart disease. In cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, sudden lame-ness may result from a blood clot that lodges in the blood vessels that supply the rear legs. This can cause a sudden onset of paralysis. Take your cat to the veterinarian right away. Q Cruciate ligament tear. This is the most common orthopedic problem veterinarians see in dogs. The cranial cruciate ligament connects the thigh-bone to the shinbone and keeps the knee, or stifle, joint stable. When this ligament tears „ usually because a dog is overweight; out of condition; jumps, twists, turns or lands wrong on a slick surface; gets body slammed by another dog during rough play; or has had a previous CCL injury on the opposite leg „ its instantly painful and can lead to painful degenerative joint disease if it goes unrepaired. Q Bone cancer. Lameness or reluctance to put weight on a limb can sig-nal osteosarcoma, the most frequently diagnosed bone tumor in dogs and cats. Depending on the location of the tumor, you may be able to feel a hard lump or swelling on the bone. Diagnosis requires an X-ray and biopsy. Osteosarcoma can be treated with amputation and che-motherapy, and the majority of pets get around well on three legs. Any time your dog appears to be lame, he needs to be seen by the veteri-narian. To diagnose the problem, your veterinarian may manipulate the legs to check range of motion or perform a neu-rological exam to check gait, reflexes and other reactions. Depending on the history and severity of lameness, X-rays or an MRI may be necessary. Whatever the cause, your dog can likely be helped. Treatment can relieve pain, improve function and slow the advancement of osteoarthritis. Rest, medication, physical rehab and, if nec-essary, surgery are among the options that can help him recover and continue the walks, hikes, runs or dog sports that are part of your lives together. Q Keep pets lean to help reduce the risk of arthritis and CCL tears.

WE ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE PLANS COURTESY PHOTODr. Julie Levy, who led the study on identification of pit bulls, plays with a dog at Alachua County Animal Services.DNA studies show that shelter workers often mislabel dogs as pit bulls, limiting adoptions DNA results show that shelter workers are often mistaken when they label a dog as a pit bull, with potentially devas-tating consequences for the dogs, a new University of Florida study has found. Animal shelter staff and veterinarians are frequently expected to guess the breed of dogs based on appear-ance alone,Ž said Julie Levy, a professor of shelter medicine at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine and the lead author of a study published recently in The Veterinary Journal. Unlike many other things people cant quite define but know when they see it, identification of dogs as pit bulls can trigger an array of negative conse-quences, from the loss of housing, to being seized by animal control, to the taking of the dogs life,Ž she said. In the high-stakes world of animal shelters, a dogs life might depend on a poten-tial adopters momentary glimpse and assumptions about its suitability as a pet. If the shelter staff has labeled the dog as a pit bull, its chances for adop-tion automatically go down in many shelters.Ž The past few decades have brought an increase in ownership restrictions on breeds including pit bulls and dogs that resemble them. The restrictions are based on assumptions that certain breeds are inherently dangerous, that such dogs can be reliably identified and that the restrictions will improve public safety, the study states. The study focused on how accurately shelter staff identified dogs believed to be pit bulls. Pit bullŽ is not a recog-nized breed, but a term applied to dogs derived from the heritage breeds Ameri-can Staffordshire terrier or Staffordshire bull terrier. The purebred American pit bull terrier is also derived from these breeds and is often included in the loose definition of pit bull.Ž The research team evaluated breed assessments of 120 dogs made by 16 shelter staff members, including four veterinarians, at four shelters. These staff members all had at least three years of experience working in a shelter environment. The researchers then took blood samples from the dogs, devel-oped DNA profiles for each animal and compared the DNA findings against the staffs initial assessments. We found that different shelter staffers who evaluated the same dogs at the same time had only a moderate level of agreement among themselves,Ž Ms. Levy said. Results of the study also showed that while limitations in avail-able DNA profiles make absolute breed identification problematic, when visual identification was compared with DNA test results, the assessors in the study fared even worse. Dogs with pit bull heritage breed DNA were identified only 33 to 75 per-cent of the time, depending on which of the staff members was judging them. Conversely, dogs lacking any genet-ic evidence of relevant breeds were labeled as pit bull-type dogs from 0 to 48 percent of the time, the researchers reported. Essentially we found that the marked lack of agreement observed among shel-ter staff members in categorizing the breeds of shelter dogs illustrates that reliable inclusion or exclusion of dogs as pit bulls is not possible, even by experts,Ž Ms. Levy said. These results raise difficult questions because shelter workers and veterinarians are expected to determine the breeds of dogs in their facilities on a daily basis. Additionally, they are often called on as experts as to whether a dogs breed will trigger confiscation or regulatory action. The stakes for these dogs and their owners are in many cases very high.Ž Dog breeds contain many genetic traits and variants, and the behavior of any individual dog is impossible to predict based on possible combinations. A dogs physical appearance cannot tell observers anything about its behav-ior. Even dogs of similar appearance and the same breed often have diverse behavioral traits in the same way that human siblings often have very different personalities,Ž she said. As for legal restrictions on dogs based on their appearance, Ms. Levy said public safety would be better served by reducing risk factors for dog bites, such as supervising children, rec-ognizing canine body language, avoid-ing an unfamiliar dog in its territory, neutering dogs and raising puppies to be social companions. The study was funded by Maddies Fund and the Merial Veterinary Schol-ars Program and was co-authored by UF veterinary medical student Kimberly Olson and Bo Norby of Michigan State Universitys College of Veterinary Med-icine. Also contributing to the research were Michael Crandall, of UF; Jennifer Broadhurst of the Jacksonville Humane Society; Stephanie Jacks of Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services; Rachel Barton of Tallahassee Animal Services; and Martha Zimmerman of Marion County Animal Services.

More specifically, we wanted to achieve this through the most current knowledge and technologically advanced procedures, as well as with research and wellness education. Looking back on the past year, it is clear that our partnership with Mount Sinai Heart New York has been an invaluable addi-tion to our community. Advancements have allowed us to improve the quality of care and to enhance the level of expertise we are able to offer patients in South Florida. We have been fortunate to work closely and consult with specialists in New York who have distinct knowledge in certain fields, like electrophysiology, catheter abla-tion or coronary angiography. Because we work so closely with these physicians, patients are able to be smoothly and seam-lessly transferred between Jupiter Medical Center and Mount Sinai when they require complex procedures we are not able to offer locally. Patients have been grateful for the coordinated access to physicians and sur-geons at Mount Sinai Heart New York, a center recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top 10 in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery services. We have an excellent transfer team that handles most of the details, like hospital admission and working with the patients insurance company to obtain authoriza-tion. In addition, patients can rest assured that they have strong continuity of care no matter where they are located; once they return to South Florida our physicians are able to follow-up with each patient and monitor their progress. Working side-by-side with these doctors also means that there are more opportuni-ties for research and development of new medications, procedures and techniques. One clinical trial that is about to begin involves the role of certain molecules in cardiac health „ by sharing insights and information, this and other research ven-tures can be quickly completed and applied to real-world situations. In our studies we are now following Mount Sinai protocol for clinical trials, which has helped to streamline the collaboration process for our research teams. Another exciting product of our partnership is the cardiac screening program that we have implemented at Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Centers. We have a variety of services that are easily accessible to members of our community, including general heart health screenings and vascu-lar screenings. Some things that we assess are patients blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol levels. At the medical center, we are also able to perform more complex, though noninvasive procedures like coro-nary CT angiography as well, all in order to aid our patients on the road to heart health. The next step for our cardiac centers growth is continuing to increase the vol-ume of patients that are brought to our Car-diac Catheterization Lab, a state-of-the-art care center where teams perform advanced nonsurgical procedures for patients with all stages of heart disease. Jupiter Medical Center is focused on achieving high quality care in all aspects of cardiac health, and is currently striving to develop an open heart surgical program. In order to achieve this, we need to be treating 1,100 patients per year, including at least 400 cases of stent implementation or angioplasties. Since the partnership with Mount Sinai Heart New York began, volume has increased sig-nificantly, and patients are beginning to recognize Jupiter Medical Center as a local first step in cardiac care. Were seeing high satisfaction rates and an appreciation for the care taken with aspects of our program. For us, this is one of the best indications that were well on our way to accomplish-ing our goal of improving our patients cardiac care. Jupiter Medical Center and Mount Sinai Heart New York are allowing this partner-ship to thrive by giving cardiologists the tools and support that they need to further advance cardiac health in South Florida. With just a year under our belts, I believe that the partnership will only continue to expand the scope of cardiac care at Jupiter Medical Center, and we look forward to a bright future with Mount Sinai Heart New York.

Fibromyalgia remains puzzling condition for 5 million in U.S. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHFibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) pain condition that affects 5 million or more Americans ages 18 and older. For unknown reasons, most people diag-nosed with fibromyalgia are women, although men and children also can be affected. People with certain disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, may also have fibromyalgia, which can affect their disease course and treatment. Fibromyalgia can take a powerful toll on health, well-being, and quality of life. People with fibromyalgia suffer from severe, daily pain that is widespread throughout the body,Ž says Dr. Leslie J. Crofford, an NIH-supported researcher at Vanderbilt University. Their pain is typically accompanied by debilitat-ing fatigue, sleep that does not refresh them, and problems with thinking and memory.Ž People with fibromyalgia often see many doctors before finally receiving a diagnosis. The main symptoms „ pain and fatigue „ overlap with those of many other conditions, which can com-plicate the diagnosis. A doctor familiar with fibromyalgia can make a diagnosis based on the crite-ria established by the American College of Rheumatology. Diagnostic symptoms include a history of widespread pain last-ing more than three months and other symptoms such as fatigue. In making the diagnosis, doctors consider the number of areas throughout the body where the patient had pain in the past week, and they rule out other causes of disease. What causes fibromyalgia isnt fully understood. Many factors likely contrib-ute. We know that people with fibromy-algia have changes in the communication between the body and the brain,Ž Dr. Crofford says. These changes may lead the brain to interpret certain sensations as painful that might not be bothersome to people without the disorder. Researchers have found several genes that may affect a persons risk of devel-oping fibromyalgia. Stressful life events may also play a role. Fibromyalgia isnt a progressive disease, so it doesnt get worse, and may improve. Its not fatal. It wont harm the joints, muscles or internal organs. Medications may help relieve some „ but not all „ symptoms of fibromyalgia. Drug treatments by themselves dont result in remission or cure of fibromy-algia,Ž says Dr. Crofford. Weve learned that exercise may work as well as or bet-ter than medications. In addition, thera-pies such as tai chi, yoga and cognitive behavior therapy can also help to reduce symptoms.Ž People with fibromyalgia often have the best results when treated with mul-tiple therapies. Dr. Crofford and her colleagues are exploring whether a treatment called TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) can help people with fibro-myalgia exercise more comfortably and reduce pain. She and other NIH-funded teams are also seeking markers of fibro-myalgia in the blood that might ulti-mately lead to more targeted and effec-tive treatments. Q


A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYKendrick Lamar, fresh off his five wins and a breathtaking performance at this years Grammy Awards, will be there. Robert Plant, whose appellation couldnt be more suitable, will be there too, among the oak trees. So will Mumford & Sons, Daryl Hall and John Oates and The Avett Brothers. Tantric sex counselors and yoga gurus will be there. A couple named Prana and Amber Rose Ashodian, who prac-tice something called sound therapy, will be there. Dozens of visual artists will be there, channeling the magic. Visual artists will be there, working on their respective crafts for all to see. The underappreciated and much-revered experimental rock band named Ween will be there. Win Butler, the lead singer from the Grammy-winning band Arcade Fire, is coming, too. Soundslinger, the company running the festival, was formed by a legend-ary music promoter, a creative direc-tor/co-founder of the famed Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee and a real estate investor music fan who developed what might be the most per-fect spot for such an event. Although the event was years in the making, it seemingly came out of nowhere when the initial lineup was announced in September. In January, The New York Times named it among the places Where Music Lovers Should Go in 2016.Ž Like Bonnaroo and dozens of other festivals throughout the coun-try, it features days of live music, danc-ing and camping in a remote location „ either with the simplest of tent set-ups or elaborate VIP options. The cost for tickets and packages ranges from $259.50 to $17,500. Its Soundslingers assertion that above all else, whatever magic „ musi-cal, financial and otherwise „ that happens, will be fueled by the earth, trees and vistas here just north of Lake Okeechobee. The Okeechobee site is the headliner of this festival,Ž says Paul Peck. We have the best festival site in America.Ž Mr. Pecks longtime friend from the music business, Steve Sybesma, lured the former Bonnaroo co-founder away from his sweet gig at the premier fes-tival. Mr. Sybesma wanted to show Mr. Peck a site that investor Clifford Rosen from Miami thought might work as a festival venue. Ive known Steve for a long time. We always talked about working on proj-ects,Ž said Mr. Peck. When he talked to me about this, I said, Im not looking to make a change. And he said, Its the best festival site youve ever seen. ƒ When I went to see it I had high expectations. Then my expecta-tions were blown out of the water. You go through these paths in the shade and come out into this tree-lined amphitheater. Its going to feel like were going to be hugged by trees all in this beautiful space together. The prop-erty is so well laid out.Ž The weather, hopefully, will be dry and cool „ a good bet for Florida in early March. The mosqui-to population is in decline at this time of year. Sound ordi-nances dont apply at Sunshine Grove. And another advantage Mr. Peck expects is that dust, which is a daunting problem at numerous festivals, will be minimal. Dust gets on everything, people and equipment. We have a 6-mile paved roadway, so cars driving in and out wont be kicking up dust. We think that were going to have a lot less dust.Ž In 2005, the festival site was slated to become Sundance Trails, a residential equestrian community with 5-acre lots. Like so many real estate ventures from that time, the deal didnt go as planned. Mr. Rosen seized the opportunity to reposition the property, with its lakes, roads and other infrastructure, to create a platform for the festival. Attendees can park their cars and camp for days. Alternately, people can simply park and come and go as they please. However, nearby hotel rooms are reportedly near or at capacity. There are VIP RV options with catered meals as well as flushing toilets and showers. (Yes, toilets and showers come at a pre-mium.) The layout map reads like a theme park guide on mushrooms. A place named Aquachobee will feature a lake beach, with bands perform-ing on stage at the waters edge. There will be a Ferris wheel and cocktails for sale. At Yogachobee, visitors are asked to take a journey inward and reawaken their connection to themselves, to oth-ers and the land.Ž Another area named Jungle 51 imagines an alien crash site in the woods that by some trippy accident results in an all-night dance party.

But the festival is expected to attract music lovers from across the country. Im coming from Washington D.C., my sister is coming from New York City,Ž said Rachel Sher, a 25-year-old paralegal. The lineup is incredibly attractive. We are both huge Mumford & Sons fans. We also love Bassnectar, Grace Potter, Odesza ƒ I could go on.Ž Ms. Sher, her sister and a group of friends will camp and grill, but theyre also excited about the food vendors. Like everything else at this event, the food is curated and designed to impress a crowd that has come to expect more than just hot dogs and slices of cheese pizza. In all, folks at Soundslinger believe theyve found a spot where natu-ral enchantment meets the logistical demands of hosting tens of thousands of revelers in style. Their goal is noth-ing less than creating one of the top festivals in the country „ mentioned in the same breath as shows like Coachella and Lollapalooza. Musical surprisesIm going to be in the What the F… section. Thats VIP,Ž Joanne McNeely laughs „ a gravelly, joyous sound. Shes spent countless hours as a top volunteer for the festivals street team, waving signs, passing out fliers and promoting the event on social media and by visit-ing businesses in Okeechobee County where she lives. In exchange for her efforts, she and her 27-year-old son will have access to the festival in a VIP area named WTF.Ž When I first heard about (the festival) I was so excited,Ž said the 58-year-old retired postal worker. Ive been into music all my life. And Ive stayed current with the times. As music has progressed, so have I. I like metal, but I moved on to EDM (electronic dance music). It keeps me young.Ž Shes as excited about seeing the electronica artist Skrillex as she is about hearing Robert Plant. For his part, Mr. Plant, along with the Sensational Space Shifters, will kick off a small tour of the South here at Okeechobee. Hell re-imagine some well-known Led Zeppelin songs on stage. However, in case you havent been paying attention since that bands last album „ CodaŽ came out in 1971 „ Mr. Plant has continued to innovate musically. At 67, hes still rocking as hard as ever „ except that trying to classify his music as just rockŽ would be a disservice. Plant is still curious about music and trying to find things he hasnt done and go places he hasnt been,Ž says Alan Sculley, a music critic for Florida Weekly whose work appears in publications throughout the country. Plant has been doing a lot of good things in recent years. Hes getting back to his roots „ going back to his album with Allison Krauss (2007s Raising SandŽ). And now hes been on a journey into Americana and getting back into blues and psychedelia.Ž Reinvention, musical experimentation at the highest levels, is Mr. Pecks greatest contribution to the festival. At Bonnaroo, he made a name for himself by creating Superjam, where hed bring disparate artists together to collaborate in one-time-only performances. There was the time at Bonnaroo, for instance, when he put Skrillex on stage with a parade of the performers musical influ-ences, which included Damien Marley with Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Mr. Peck has rebranded this mashup concept for Okeechobee, where his mixed-up set is called the PoWoW!Ž Im a fan first,Ž said Mr. Peck. I love creating special moments. Those combinations of art and surprise, when two artists perform together for the first time and we all experience that together. They create something new. I live for those moments.Ž The Superjams also became known for springing A-list surprises on audiences, like the time when R.

Theres going to be so much stuff to do out there, you will con-nect to something new. I guarantee. Its designed to be a place of music discov-ery, and also of personal discovery. Lets say Mumford & Sons is your favorite band, but then you see Kendrick Lamar and that connects with you „ were out to obliterate genre classifications and break barriers and create a new com-munity based on diversity. And whats being created here has never happened before.Ž Going VIPFor those who are attracted to the lineup but may be put off by the thought of primitive camping without the ben-efit of electricity or running water, there are several options to minimize the more SurvivormanŽ aspects of the experience. The Big Kachobee Tour Bus Package for eight people includes private bunks, plush couches, flat-screen TVs, a mini-kitchen and private bathroom, as well as access to showers, an open bar, lunch and premium viewing areas by the stag-es. The cost is $17,500, plus $581 in fees. Other, less-expensive VIP options include boutique camping tents that come with a queen bed, chairs, electri-cal hookups, catered breakfasts, access to a comfortable, air-conditioned lounge and the coveted showers. A two-person package runs $2,749 plus fees. (Non-VIP visitors can shower for $7.) Other festivals have come under fire for paying too much attention to the VIP customers, creating a culture of havesŽ and have-nots.Ž Organizers are charged with trying to minimize the appearance of disparity while still cast-ing a wide net in terms of the kinds of people who will come to the show. Im trying to form a community. You dont want people to feel like theyre on different levels,Ž said Mr. Peck. But the thing about community is I want to be as welcoming to as many people as pos-sible. My parents want to experience a festival in a different way than my little brother. I want to give as many people the opportunity to experience this. (The VIPs) wont be an in-your-face elitist thing. The VIPs are going to want to be in the general admission experience. This general admission experience will be equivalent to the VIP at other shows.Ž General admission tickets to the show, where you pitch your own tent, fend for yourself and use the portable toilets cost $259.50 p lus $20 in fees for a threeday pass, which includes parking. Discovering OkeechobeeOkeechobee Countys population will increase by more than 75 percent when the music festival comes to town. There are about 40,000 living in the county. The festival is expected to draw at least 30,000 fans plus a few thousand more organizers, volunteers, performers and reporters. Theres a Publix, a Wal-Mart and a Winn-Dixie in town, but theres no shopping mall, which is just as well. Okeechobee is country „ without the trendy aspirations of places like Fort Myers or Naples. It embraces its rural-ness. You can still know the people here. You know the county commissioners by their first names,Ž said Robbi Sumner, who does Internet sales for Elis Western Wear on Park Street, the citys main com-mercial drag. Like many here, shes posi-tive if not a little ambivalent as she waits to see how the whole thing turns out. Were positively apprehensive,Ž said Ms. Sumner with a laugh. Increased traffic is a concern. But theres also the potential for revenue. The median income in Okeechobee is $34,490 (com-pared with $47,908 in Lee County). If people are in the hotels, eating at our restaurants, thats good ƒ It would be nice for people to say, Thats a neat place, lets go back and do some fishing or clay shooting.Ž For their part, organizers have reached out to business owners, the commu-nity and civic leaders, doing their best to impart the festivals live-and-let-live vibe. To hear the organizers tell it, this festival is only the beginning. Its their hope to keep growing the event and to use the site in new and interesting ways. It is definitely in our sights to host multiple festivals and events,Ž said Soundslingers Steve Sybesma during a recent online Reddit forum. We have at least one amazing concept in the works, groundbreaking, like nothing ever done before.

Q Teacher receives Holocaust Educator award SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDr. Lavinia Draper wanted to challenge her students to think beyond their class-room walls. When her U.B. Kinsey/Palmview Elementary School of the Arts third-graders wanted to do something about the increase in crime near their West Palm Beach neigh-borhood, they did more than discuss the problem in class „ they got involved, con-ducting research and creating a proposal they presented to city leaders for a commu-nity peace mural. "They learned how people can work with local government to make their communi-ties a better place to live, for now and in the future," Dr. Draper said in a statement. That focus on social justice in the classroom is why Dr. Draper was named one of two winners of the 20 15 Gutt erman Family Holocaust Educator Award, given by the Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education at Florida Atlantic University. For Dr. Draper, the lessons of the Holocaust's past help students become better citizens in the present. She became involved with teaching the Holocaust five years ago when Maureen Carter, the School District's K-12 Holocaust Studies Program Planner, began presenting programs to Dr. Draper's students and arranging Holocaust survivors, like Zelda Fuksman, to share their stories of hope and survival. "Holocaust studies provide students with the opportunity to address the topics of hatred and inequities by allowing the children to shift the focus to love and fairness," Dr. Draper said in the statement. "Children are intrinsically curious about the world around them and the historical events that have led to today's current events. They are also inherently optimistic towards problem solving and are capable of generating cre-ative and ambitious solutions, which reflect their true desire to do the right thing." As part of her award, Dr. Draper will receive an all-expenses-paid trip during the summer to join the Austria and the Czech Republic Holocaust Study Tour, with visits to World War II sites in Krakow, Paris and Normandy. This is the latest honor for Dr. Draper during her tenure in the School District of Palm Beach County, where she has worked since 1997. She earned the Palm Beach County Literacy Award in 2006, was named Palm Beach County Social Studies Teacher of the Year for 2010-11, and the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce Education Award in 2012. In 2012, she received the Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching, and worked in Wales, where she presented her research and research from around the United States supporting arts integration and the positive impact that art programs in the US had on raising academic achievement. She met with arts leaders and government officials to preserve the arts in the country's academ-ic programs and wrote scholarly articles about her work that were presented to the Welsh Parliament.

The best website to get accurate information about filing your taxes is Gather forms and paperwork Keep an eye on the mail and collect all forms labeled important taxŽ informa-tion. Thats one starting point for a lot of average clients,Ž said Kevin Gosse, enrolled agent and tax consultant for Legacy Tax & Accounting in Lake Suzy. They can review last years tax return. Thatll give them an indication of what forms theyre watching for.Ž If you have one job and no other income, you may only need a Form W-2 to file. Maybe youre gathering paperwork that represents a variety of income from stocks or properties; charitable and other itemized tax deductions; or credits such as the Lifetime Learning Credit (up to $2,000 per student for the fifth year and on of undergraduate, graduate and profes-sional degree courses, including courses to improve job skills). If you have any questions on anything unusual, you need to have a conversation with your preparer,Ž said CPA JoAnn Wag-ner, a shareholder of the firm LKD in Jupi-ter. You just never know what the rami-fications are, if it will save you some money or is something you need to address.ŽThe new 1095 health insurance forms The IRS is keeping track of your health insurance due to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Thats why most of us this year, and mostly for the first time, are get-ting a Form 1095 in the mail from health insurance companies sometime between Feb. 1 and March 31. Its not much of a difference because most people dont even need them to file their tax return,Ž Mr. Gosse said. If you didnt have health insurance the penalty increased a little bit. Other than that there are not a lot of changes this year.Ž The 1095 forms show the health insurance you had last year on a monthly basis. If there are any months when you didnt have it, there is likely a tax penalty, depending on your income. There are three 1095 forms: a 1095-A, -B, and -C. If you get a 1095-A youre going to need that to do your tax return,Ž Mr. Gosse explains, because 1095-A is from the fed-eral government Health Insurance Mar-ketplace and is important for people who got Obamacare subsidies. They cant file without it and if they do theyll have to amend it probably.Ž If its a …B or …C, that means you enrolled outside the federal Health Insurance Mar-ketplace, on your own or through an employer. You can probably do the return without them. The …B and …C only show that you had health insurance and for what parts of the year you had health insurance,Ž Mr. Gosse said. More information: for free You might file on your own, use commercial tax-prep software such as TurboTax, or hire a professional preparer. In any case, 80 percent of those filing returns are expected to e-file and have it direct deposited into their bank account. That, the IRS says, remains the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and receive a refund.Ž The IRS plans to issue 90 percent of refunds in less than 21 days. Seventy-percent of taxpayers, or those with adjusted gross income below $62,000, are eligible to get free commer-cial tax-prep software through the IRS and file for free. IRS Free File partners with brand-name providers that guide you through the process. Go here to get started: Way’s VITA ProgramThe United Way is partnering with local organizations to offer free tax return preparation assistance. The Bonita Springs Assistance Office, for instance, is offering free tax filing assistance this season to those with household incomes less than $60,000. BSAO will be hosting the United Way Volunteer Income Tax Assistance pro-gram every Saturday through April 16 except March 12 from 9 a.m. to noon. Those eligible for the program receive tax return assistance from IRS-certified volunteers. Candidates anywhere in Florida can also get information on how to file their returns for free at the United Way site, VITA aides can also assist in determining if individuals are candidates for the Earned Income Tax Credit, which when claimed can earn low-income households up to a $6,269 tax credit. Appointments for VITAs free services can be made today at For questions, call United Ways hotline at 211 or at 433-3900.Avoid tax return fraud: Get an IP PINThieves can use your personal information to file a fraudulent return on your behalf and grab your refund. That results in hassles and delays when you try to pro-cess your return. One thing you can do to avoid tax return fraud is to file as early as possible. The other is to get an Identity Protection Personal Identification Number. If youve already been a victim of tax fraud, the IRS has already assigned you an IP PIN. Even if you have not been a victim of tax return fraud, one of the best ways to prevent it is to get an IP PIN anyway, said cybersecurity expert Ms. Kerskie. Get one by going to and enter IP PINŽ in the search box in the top right corner or Follow the instructions to create an account with a User ID and get an IP PIN. If the IRS receives a tax return without your IP PIN it will automatically be rejected. The six-digit number is renewed each year. Every year the IRS will email you a new PIN,Ž Ms. Kerskie said. Its a no-brainer. Its a way to reduce if not prevent tax return fraud.Ž (Ms. Kerskie notes that many people also have a PIN for e-filing. That is a dif-ferent, unrelated PIN). The IP PIN is a program started in the last few years by the IRS for areas such as Florida, Georgia and Washington, D.C., which are hardest hit by tax return fraud. Ms. Kerskie said the program still has some kinks to be worked out: A few weeks ago, for instance, the website wasnt working. Also, if you have a credit freeze on your credit report youll need to contact Equi-fax to have it temporarily lifted so you can get an IP PIN. Don’t take these calls Many have been getting threatening phone calls or robo-calls from some-one claiming to represent the IRS and, for instance, claiming that you are being audited and demanding payment. But the IRS doesnt cold call people. It still seems like the top scam is the phone calls,Ž said Mr. Gosse. But one thing people have to understand is the IRS will never call you, you know? So as soon as you get a call from the IRS you know its a scam.Ž Another sign it is a fraud is if they ask you to pay using a prepaid debit card. If they get any phone calls from people pretending to be the IRS, especially if theyre demanding payment over the phone or if theres a warrant for their arrest or whatever, just hang up,Ž Ms. Ker-skie advises. And dont believe the caller ID. It doesnt matter. I can make the caller ID say whatever I want.ŽThe IRS on Feb. 18 reported a 400 percent surge in email phishing and malware incidents over last year, asking consumers for various information related to refunds, filing status and personal information. Some consumers have received variations of such emails in text messages. Dont click on emails claiming to be from the IRS. The IRS likes to send lettersThe IRS is old-fashioned (yet entirely unsentimental) and will more likely con-tact you with a paper letter if theres a problem with your return. Dont mistakenly ignore a letter thinking its a scam. For one, it could be your first red flag that youre a victim of tax return fraud. But to be safe, instead of calling the number on the letter, go to and call the phone number listed on the web-site.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 BUSINESS A23 MONEY & INVESTINGInternet sales, strong dollar slow Wal-Mart growth; optimism advisedTo most people, listening to a public companys quarterly earnings confer-ence call would not be the most exciting way to spend their morning. However, I have been an investor in Wal-Mart for a couple of months now so I tuned in to their latest call last week to see how the company was doing. Unfortunately for me and the thousands of other investors of the stock, the companys earnings were not spec-tacular and the stock fell a bit in trading after the release. But regardless of whether you own the stock (and you do if you own any index funds or ETFs), the release itself highlighted several important econom-ic and financial trends that should be noted by any investor. The first noteworthy part of the call had to do with Wal-Marts return on its massive investment in e-commerce. Last year the company spent around a billion dollars on its Internet sales platform and expects to do the same this year in order to compete against Amazon. With such a massive investment, investors were expecting big things during the Christmas season. Last year, its online sales increased 17 percent in the first quarter, 16 percent in the second quarter and 10 percent in the third quarter. For the last quarter, Internet sales only increased by 8 percent. Clearly, this trend is moving in the wrong direction for Wal-Mart and it shows how hard it is to compete against Amazon. To compare, Amazons sales increased 20 percent in the fourth quarter. Many analysts believed that if anyone could compete against Amazon, it was Wal-Mart, given its world-class logis-tics and purchasing power, but so far its results have been lackluster at best. Investors will continue to scrutinize Wal-Marts online sales in the next few quarters to see if they can start to take any market share away from Amazon. A second highlight in the Wal-Mart call had to do with its expenses. Since its founding, Wal-Mart has always prided itself in keeping expenses low, from the cost of its products to the maintenance of its stores to its employ-ee expenses. However, lately this policy has backfired somewhat as the retailer has taken heat for paying its employees too little and not having clean and well-present-ed stores. So Wal-Mart agreed to increase the wages of its employees and spent large sums of money on improving its stores. Unfortunately, neither of these two expenditures has paid off so far. Comparable sales in Wal-Mart stores increased by an anemic .6 percent. So will the larg-est private employer in the U.S. reverse its course and start to bring down its expenses again? The company indicated that it still believes in investing in its associates and physical locations but I believe unless Wal-Mart sees an uptick in sales soon, it may reverse course on these expenditures. Wal-Mart also spent time on its call discussing the effect of the strong dollar on its earnings, a common theme among many large companies. In fact, the company said that the strong dollar reduced earnings by 4 cents a share. This may not seem like a large number until you realize that Wal-Mart has over 3.2 billion shares of stock outstand-ing, which means that 4 cents a share translates to over $128 million in lost profitability. In one quarter. So while cheaper imports do help Wal-Mart somewhat by keeping its product costs low, its inter-national sales are harmed by a much larger amount. Many multinational companies are facing similar headwinds, a problem I believe we will continue to see in the months and years ahead. Finally, Wal-Marts call highlighted the law of large numbers. Even large companies like Wal-Mart are expected to grow each and every quarter. But Wal-Mart has sales of $130 billion per quarter. Americans, on average, spent around $900 last year at Wal-Mart. It is very hard to grow from those numbers. Which is why the retailer, like many other similar U.S. companies, was counting on international growth and e-commerce to fuel its net income. But with Amazon clearly still the undisputed champion of Internet sales and the strong dollar making Wal-Marts products more expensive, growth at the retailer is challenging. But I wouldnt count Wal-Mart out just yet. Its pricing power with major brands is a major competitive advantage and it is still the leader in groceries. Plus, its investments in its facilities and employees may be a drag today but I believe it will pay off handsomely down the line. Lastly, the company continues to raise its dividend, which is nice in todays zero interest rate environment. Clearly, as an investor, I am counting on the company to turn things around and it will be a very interesting stock to follow in the months and years ahead. Q „ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda (a buyer and seller of estate jewelry and diamonds), was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric BEHIND THE WHEELFord Expedition Platinum EL — A Lincoln’s worth of luxury behind the Ford badgeThere is a little piece of plastic that goes in between a smartphone and the portable credit card reader to cradle it and keep it in place. This is a simple idea that is a relatively inexpensive accessory, and it is only appreciated by a select few who have heavy usage. What does it have to do with the SUV seen here? More than you might think. The 2016 Ford Expedition Platinum EL is a mouthful to say, but its extensive moniker is justified. It is Fords large SUV that shares a chassis and engines with the outing-ready F-Series pickup. The ELŽ is an extended-length version, and Platinum is the newest top-of-the-line trim. This one has a size presence, and it knows how to make an entrance. The Platinum trim comes standard with power-deployed running boards that drop down whenever any door is open. It has a little electric hum thats loud enough to let everyone at the valet stand know this SUV is extra fancy. The EL adds another foot to the Expeditions already substantial wheelbase. It gives Ford bragging rights by being an inch longer between the wheels than its chief rival, the Chevrolet Suburban. But the 220.8-inch overall length is over 3 inches shorter than the Chevy. In the real world no one will know it has the silver metal for size, and just be prepared for plenty of comments on its bulk when picking up friends. Once inside, passengers will appreciate the larger space. This has room to carry up to eight people, and all of them can be adults if everyone is already friendly. The Platinum edition keeps everyone comfortable with all three rows covered in leather. The front seats get heating and cooling and even the middle ones come heated „ all as stan-dard equipment. The driver might notice some of the materials are borrowed from the previ-ous generation F-150, such as the steering wheel and vents. But it still feels inde-pendent and modern with features like the center speedometer with program-mable readouts on both sides for every-thing from fuel economy to the stereo. The EL more than doubles the cargo capacity behind the third row for a total of 42.6 cubic feet. This is good news for people who take trips with large fami-lies or plenty of friends, because this one has the capacity to carry everyone and their luggage at the same time. By now it might seem like a large crossover can do the same job, but not quite. Fords full-sized Flex is a decent rival for the standard Expedition since it carries only one less person and offers a few feet more in cargo capacity. But these extended wheelbase vehicles like the EL are usually based on a truck chas-sis that offers more elasticity and better durability. The Platinum model further plays into this strength with a heavy-duty towing package that comes standard. Those who own boats, campers or other recreational items that need to be towed know the value of having secure space within the vehicle to haul accessories. This level of utility starts at $64,180. Thats not everyday affordable, but it would cost around $10K more to have a similarly optioned version of the Expe-ditions twin, the Lincoln Navigator. This is more than just a significant savings over the next rung up the pres-tige ladder. Some of us might enjoy driv-ing a premium vehicle, but a premium brand might not be right for certain businesses. For example, some clients might think they are paying too much when their representative arrives in a Lincoln or Cadillac. But vehicles like this and the Chevrolet Suburban offer high luxury levels without the stigma of an expensive marque. In a similar way, theres a lot less stress in writing down a Ford Expedition as a business expense than a Lincoln Navigator. This SUV is not for everyone. You should have a need to carry family and tow toys simultaneously, and at the same time, desire a premium feeling with a less flashy image. The Ford Expe-dition Platinum EL costs a heck of a lot more than a little piece of plastic for your smartphone, but for the right few, its worth every penny. Q myles

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 REAL ESTATE A27 The Art of Living Operated by Sothebys International Realty, Inc. PALMBEACH BROKERAGE | 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 337 | Palm Beach, FL 33480 561.659.3555 | IMPORTANT MODERN WATERFRONT HOME | $8,995,000 | Web: 0076623 | Todd Peter | 561.281.0031 KOVEL: ANTIQUESMany items made from endangered species can no longer be sold BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELNew endangered species laws are trying to protect animals that could disappear from the earth if poaching and killing are not stopped. Sometimes it is just a horn or a tusk that is wanted, but to get it, the animal must be killed. A look at some of the antiques that now cant be sold legally illus-trates the problem. While few would object to the laws that cover living animals, there is controversy about objecting to the sale of ivory, horn or feathers taken from animals more than 50 years ago when there was no scarcity of the animals. Whale oil was a useful source of light, and whale meat was a popular food. Baby seals and tigers had fur that made attractive, warm coats. An elephant tusk or rhinoceros horn was used to make carved cups and decorative pieces. And eagle feathers were needed by Indians for religious ceremonies. Because some states have passed laws saying no ivory of any age can be legally sold, it has become a confusing market for collectors. Be sure to check the laws the day before you try to sell any parts of an endangered species. In 2014, Garths Auctions in Delaware, Ohio, sold a wine caddy made in the early 20th century from the hoof of a rhinoceros. It brought $1,800. Today it probably would be impossible to sell in many states. Q: Were cleaning out my fathers house and found a Windsor rocking chair with the label Crocker Chair Company, She-boygan, Wisconsin.Ž Were wondering if its an antique. What is it worth? A: Silas Crocker was one of the owners of the first furniture factory in Sheboygan. He and a partner established a factory in a converted hotel in 1865. The factory burned down in 1875. Crocker bought a carriage company in 1880 and made chairs, stools, tables, china cabinets and other furniture. In 1924 the company was reor-ganized. It sold furniture for hotels, offices and schools. Crocker Chair Company was closed by 1932. Your Crocker rocker is worth $100 to $200. Q: I received a set of Russel Wright dishes when I got married in 1958. All that remains is an oval vegetable dish. Its marked on the back Russel Wright by Knowles, Snowflower, Made in U.S.A.Ž Would this have any value? A: Russel Wright (1904-1976) designed domestic and industrial wares, includ-ing dinnerware, glassware, furniture, alu-minum, radios, interiors and more. He designed modern dinnerware for several companies, including Knowles. Snow-flower is part of Knowles Esquire line, made between 1956 and 1962. Some say this design of modernistic gray twigs and white dots on a pink background was Wrights favorite line, although it wasnt one of the most pop-ular lines at the time. Russel Wright dinnerware is collect-ible today. Your vegetable dish is worth about $40. Q: How much are eight bags of Old Advertiser Smoking Tobacco with the rolling papers worth? The box they came in isnt in good shape. A: Old Advertiser Smoking Tobacco was made by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Richard Joshua Reynolds founded a chewing tobac-co company in 1875. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. was incorporated in 1890. Our Adver-tiser Smoking Tobacco was introduced before 1918. Reynolds sold the brand to Republic Tobacco Inc. in 1987. The rolling papers are used to roll your own cigarettes. Value: $300. Q: My mother has a collection of about 8,000 pieces of Blue Willow. It includes Japanese, English and Buffalo Pottery dish-es. She had about 32 complete place set-tings and tons of accessory pieces. She also has Gaudy Willow bowl and thunder mug set with soap dish and toothbrush holder. Can you help with pricing and selling this collection? A: Willow pattern has been made in England since 1780 and was made famous by Thomas Minton. The pattern has been copied by factories in many countries, including Germany, Japan and the United States and it still is being made. You need to have an expert look at the collection to determine if its the inexpensive 20th century Blue Willow or the great early Blue Willow. It should be sold by someone who specializes in Blue Wil-low. The International Willow Collectors ( hold an annual convention. A list of clubs for collectors of Blue Willow pattern collectibles is listed on its site. Q: I have a creamer and sugar marked Czechoslovakia P.A.L.T.Ž They are dainty, iridescent and have black lines running north and south. Are they worth anything? A: This mark was used by Porzellanfabrik Adolf Laufer, a porcelain factory in business in Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia (now Trnovany, Czech Republic). The factory was in business from 1919 to about 1938. Some Adolf Laufer porcelain was made for export to the United States. The value of your creamer and sugar is less than $20. Tip: Carbon steel blades used in silver table knives sometimes get rust spots. If you rub the blades with a bit of beeswax lip balm, you can clear up spots and prevent new ones. The beeswax is edible. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. By sending a letter with a question, you give full permission for use in the column or any other Kovel forum.

Such is the case in the exhibition Bill Cunningham: Faades,Ž at the Society of the Four Arts through March 6. While not exactly a household name, fashion cognoscenti and readers of The New York Times are very aware of photographer Bill Cunningham. Hes a man with one camera, abundant energy and enthusiasm, and a passion for document-ing fashion as he finds it, on the streets of New York, at society evening events and designers runways. Fashion is his lifelong obsession. And, at nearly 87 years old, Mr. Cunningham still is shoot-ing day and night to capture the latest trends which are then featured in The Times, along with his commentary on its website. The wily octogenarian whisks downtown then uptown on his bicycle to document the fashion scene both formal and on the street. What one discovers when viewing FaadesŽ is that there is much more to it than first meets the eye. In a side gallery is an 80-minute, award-winning documentary film, Bill Cunningham New York,Ž which I believe is the first thing gallery visitors should see. Or, watch it on NetFlix or Amazon Prime at home before seeing the show. Insight gained from the film will greatly enhance enjoyment and comprehension. In more than 80 photographs, the backgrounds are indeed faades of architec-tural treasures of New York City, but it is also a double entendre as the fashion on the models also is a faade. They appear in costumes of the buildings period, cap-tured like a moment in time, peppering the photos with historical references. In fact, Mr. Cunningham said, Fashion is BY APRIL W.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Is it my imagination, or have we never been as polarized politically as we are right now? Its funny to hear folks talk about how dirty this 2016 cam-paign is,Ž said my friend Tom Peeling, who is one of the nations top dealers in political collect-ibles. To tell the truth, others have been much worse back in the 1800s, including charges of illegitimate children and wives who were committing bigamy. This year is somewhat tame compared to past years.Ž We can see for ourselves just how tame times are in com-parison by checking out Toms annual event, the South Florida Political and Historical Collect-ibles Show, set for Feb. 27 in West Palm Beach. An event such as this, at which Tom will bring together deal-ers in political collectibles „ pins, posters, banners and other mementoes „ offers any of us an opportunity to reflect on how much we have changed as a nation. The Lincoln campaigns of the 1860s were particularly vile, and 32 years before that, Andrew Jacksons wife, Rachel, was the subject of gossip spread by the campaign of her husbands oppo-nent, John Quincy Adams, in the 1828 presidential election. She had thought she was divorced from her first husband when she married Jackson. As it turned out, her first husband had not completed the divorce. That w as the 1820s. More recently, there were anti-Lyndon Johnson buttons in 1964 that said Sterilize LBJ: No more ugly children. Mean-while, the LBJ folks took shots at Barry Goldwaters slogan of In Your Heart You Know Hes Right, by changing it to In Your Guts You Know Hes Nuts,Ž Tom said. Ah, politics. Q „ The South Florida Political and Historical Collectibles Show is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 27, West Palm Beach Event Hall, 2223 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., West Palm Beach. Buy, sell, trade, buttons, ribbons, artifacts. Free appraisals.

Next sale is March 12-13; Cost: $50 for the pair. The Skinny: This weeks find is decidedly middle class. Or at least it was when new, probably in the midto late 19th century, when women and children labored in the factories of the West Midlands of England to make these pieces of decorative pottery for the countrys burgeoning middle class. The colorful pottery, made throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, often was used as prizes at carnivals and such. But pieces came to be popular in the 20th century. My antiques dealer friend Ed Pry remembers seeing warehouses full of reproduction Staffordshire figures in the 70s in England. Many were being agedŽ by being left out in sun or had soot rubbed into the glaze to make them look like they had crazing acquired over decades.

The fate of Arts Garage in Delray Beach has taken a more encouraging turn because a major funder received enough financial information to make its leaders comfortable in disbursing some if not all of the crucially needed operating money being withheld, offi-cials confirmed Feb. 22. The Community Redevelopment Agency voted Feb. 19 to release $68,750, the fourth-quarter grant for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, CRA minutes show. Since the agreement with the CRA reimburses Arts Garage after money is already spent, the grant helps refill the Arts Garages depleted operating budget. I think were over the hump of uncertainty,Ž Arts Garage President and CEO Alyona Ushe said. The organization has turned a major, major corner. Not only will we survive, but we will flour-ish.Ž The release of the money was triggered when Arts Garage delivered numerous financial documents CRAs staff wanted to inspect to ensure that their past grants had been spent respon-sibly and were being accounted for cor-rectly, said CRA Executive Director Jeff Costello. For instance, the CRA wanted and received proof that its money was not being spent or co-mingled with the Arts Garages operations of other venues owned by the city of Pompano Beach, Mr. Costello said. But the CRA is still withholding two quarterly payments for the current 2015-2016 fiscal year, about $140,000, while Arts Garage takes action on demands from CRA and Arts Garages landlord, the Delray Beach City Commission, for more documentation and changes in its financial management. CRA provides about 18 percent of the Arts Garages operating funds. They knew they had to move quickly, because were almost halfway through the fiscal year,Ž Mr. Costello said Monday The CRA board insisted last month and still requires that Arts Garage deliv-er an audit of the 2014-2015 fiscal year expenditures before releasing any more money. Until the release of funds Friday, Ms. Ushe said they did not have the cash flow to pay for it. Now the newly commissioned audit plus a strategic business plan and an updated handbook of financial procedures should be ready by the end of March, Ms. Ushe said. In theory, the venues lease with the city expires March 15, but the City Com-mission „ which also has questioned the groups financial management prac-tices „ informally agreed last week to extend the lease month-to-month for six months to give the venue time to overhaul its administrative structure. Arts Garage is a nonprofit performing arts venue that leases space in the built-out first floor of the city-owned parking garage just west of the new Pineapple Grove district downtown. It received a temporary reprieve on its lease from the City Commission, but its long-term existence depends on sig-nificant changes to satisfying commis-sioners accusations of financial mis-management. The commission begrudgingly agreed to consider extending the lease for the 5-year-old multidisciplinary venue an additional two to five years if the ven-ues board of directors and city leaders can hammer out requisite items on a checklist ranging from an overhaul of the management structure to bring-ing minorities onto its governing board to quarterly progress reports on the changes. Theres still work they need to do,Ž Mr. Costello observed. Ms. Ushe said she was grateful that about 400 patrons and citizens emailed thanks to the City Commission last week for their support for extending the lease.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 2, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYThe house, the sculpture gardens and all the flower artwork inside all create a sense of enchantment. The magic starts the minute you drive up to the building. If you look up, youll see a 10-foot-tall red tulip balanced on a thin stem in front of this historic home in West Palm Beach. Its actually a bronze sculpture by Robert St. Croix (West Palm Beach), Grande Prima Flora,Ž one of the artists in the show. The tulip proudly announces the exhibition with a small sign at its feet. Looking up, you may feel as if you have sipped from the bottle marked Drink me,Ž as Alice did, and shrunk down to a smaller size. Mr. St. Croix has other smaller works in the exhibition, including a colorful metal bouquet of tulips. This exhibition consists of artwork by nine artists „ six from South Florida. Most of the artists have ties to Palm Beach,Ž said Karen Steele, interim execu-tive director. That makes this exhibition even more special to the local community and art enthusiasts alike.Ž The sculpture, painting and photography reveal a wide range of styles, shapes, media, and imagination „ all beautifully displayed inside and outside the home „ artfully arranged by curator Marie Scripture. This is our most comprehen-sive group art show so far,Ž she said. Its a perfect complement to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens.Ž As you wander through the exhibition and gardens, youll see that tulips are the subject of choice of many of the artists „ not just St. Croix. In the first room, for instance Clarita Brinkerhoff (South Florida) has created a mixed media sculp-ture titled TulipŽ that stands in a small flowerpot in a recess in the wall. This sculpture is made of pewter, polished and copper-plated, and then decorated with hundreds of Swarovski crystals that gleam sumptuously, almost like jewelry. Babette Bloch (Connecticut) also is fascinated by tulips. In the outside garden, she has created a startling 6-foot-high bouquet of stainless steel tulips called Tulipula.Ž Even though it is made of stainless steel, this piece somehow man-ages to catch the grace of these flowers. Bloc also has several smaller flower sculptures inside the Norton house. The main room holds one of the largest pieces by the exhibitions two photogra-phers. Its a print by Dragana Connaugh-ton (Palm Beach) of a bright carpet of sunflowers (SunflowersŽ) that catches the eye. The sunflowers recede into the distance in the much same way the fields of flowers painted by the French Impres-sionists did; but in this case the bright gold blooms remain in much sharper focus. Jean Matthews (Palm Beach) likes to move in very close to her subjects „ and surprise the viewer. With this technique, she enlarges the subject, almost the way Georgia OKeeffe does, but she may in-clude other objects in her flower photo-graphs. A good example of this approach is her print titled Sentimental Journey,Ž which examines a branch of queens crape myrtle and a brown paper bag in a pool of water. The four painters on display demonstrate very different styles. But, like the sculptors, they favor certain flowers. Roses are high on the list. Ben Schonzeits (New York City) large rectangular acrylic painting of pink roses on linen (RosesŽ) is one of the most stunning paintings in the exhibition. Schonzeit is a well-known artist who was a pioneer in the field of photorealism. In this painting, he combines photorealism with surreal-ism: A row of lovely large pink roses in a glass vase float across the canvas against a background of gray and black wavy stripes. Its a beautiful, calming, almost romantic picture and a highlight of the exhibition. Gladiolas by the Sea,Ž by Mary Paige Evans (Gulfstream) is another painting that evokes calmness and serenity. Alice would surely be reassured and calmed by this painting. The style is almost the opposite of Schonzeits RosesŽ „ al-though still realistic. A colorful bouquet of gladiolas sits gracefully in a blue-and-while Chinese vase set on a terrace table. Beyond the terrace lie the beautiful green and blue colors of the sea. Its clearly American Impressionist in style, very reminiscent of Claude Monets painting, Garden at Sainte-Adresse.Ž But not every artist in the exhibition focuses on the beauty in flowers. Patricia Nixs (New York, Palm Beach and Paris) mixed-media Rose BaroqueŽ is power-ful, but also a little frightening. In the center left a large pink rose is just open-ing up and its pink petals float against a blood red wall. Something in the effect is disturbing. Its time to ask questions, almost the way Alice did when she was in Wonderland. Your mood will turn sunnier when you enter the fourth room „ a wide entrance hall the opens onto the sculpture garden. A whimsical, engaging acrylic of Winston Churchill at his easel is perched on the wall to the left with flowers in the corner of the canvas. The painting is called Brush with History,Ž and transmits such humor and affection that it is almost no surprise that it was painted by his grand-daughter, Edwina Sandys (New York and Palm Beach), an accomplished sculptor and artist. Ms. Sandys has several other unique large flower sculptures outside in the sculpture garden, and she was the one who suggested the theme of the show. The FlowersŽ exhibition ends with a flourish as you step outside into the Sculpture Garden. There you will find more sculpture „ giant-sized flowers „ done by the sculptors and one art-ist (Ms. Sandys) in the show. These are powerful, not meek flowers, standing on strong, although thin stems. The strength, size, and delicacy of these pieces make an intriguing contrast with the massive wall-like brick sculpture by Ann Norton that stands in the center of the pond. As you gaze at the scene, you may feel youve become a miniature Alice again. If you have enough time, stay for lunch. On good weather days, guests can eat a fine variety of light lunch items pre-pared by Emko Catering, at a reasonable price, on the shaded terrace outside Ann Nortons studio. Its a lovely place to sit and think „ with the knowledge that you wont start shrinking or growing as Alice did in her Wonderland dream.

It didnt matter that baseball fit the definition of interstate commerce. Mr. Grow will examine anti-trust legislation and the baseball ruling within the context of the time.
