For example, you might say an overdose of political correctness is using inclusive language to acknowledge roles and responsibilities that are no longer gender-specific „ using chairperson vs. chairman; or firefighter instead of fire-man, for example. For some, the nicety is a trivial distinction not worth making; but, for oth-ers, not so much. If you happen to be the one the argument is about, you may feel you are rendered invisible by a failure to acknowledge difference as fundamental to the human experience; and therefore important to consider in matters of law, policy and social equality. According to multiple sources, the use of political correctnessŽ gained popular-ity among conservatives in the mid-1980s to do a hatchet job on liberalism. It was a convenient way to discredit the imagined excess of leftist politicians making too nice. Conservatives took to the tactic so well the term was rarely associated with the left calling out the right using a reversal of political reasoning. Defenders of liberalism took exception to the rights sneer tactics, accusing it of trying to sabotage voters atten-tion to the inequality and discrimination stemming from differences of race, class, and/or gender. From the lefts point of view, the right was expanding its appeal to ultraconservatives by championing toxic attitudes and threatening behav-iors. Polly Toynbee, a journalist for The Guardian, wrote that the right gave permission to and provided a coded cover for all who still want to say out loud Paki, spastic or queer,Ž and, more to the point, to get away with it. Decades later, the tactic is still in use and the conservatives politically cor-rectŽ hit list longer and more insistent. It includes progressive laws and policies that challenge discrimination against immigrants, women, undocumented immigrants, Muslims, and gay and trans-gender people, for example. Of the conservatives who deftly practice this dark art, none is better than Donald Trump. His presidential cam-paign to win the 2016 Republican nomi-nation is premised on attacking as polit-ically correctŽ the entirety of moral, ethi-cal and political constraints imposed by principled, democratic values. For him, there is nothing aspirational about being politically correctŽ as an expression of Americans simply trying to be better than we are. Trump is thus free to unfetter a torrent of bad behavior unprecedented in a modern presidential candidate. He is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobe and world-class Pinocchio, the most outra-geous, politically incorrect candidate of them all. The more offensive, angry and nonpresidential he behaves, the greater his popularity. Its a bad omen for civil society. So, I should not have been surprised at Trumps reaction to the announcement by the U.S. Treasury secretary that the Treasury will replace past president and slaveholder Andrew Jackson with Har-riet Tubman, former slave and abolition-ist, on the front of the $20 bill. However, Jacksons silvery locks wont disappear altogether. He will still appear, but on the back of the bill. You would think, if there is one thing that really is politically correctŽ in a nice, laudatory, noncontroversial way, it is honoring Tubman, the first woman in a century, and the first African-American of either gender, to ever appear on a paper greenback. But kiss my grits, the conservative response defaulted to the accusation of political correctness faster than you can say The Battle of New Orleans.Ž I had forgotten: In retaliation for Frances opposition to the proposed inva-sion of Iraq, French fries became Free-dom friesŽ on the menus in the U.S. House of Representatives. Conservatives took a hard line on their own version of political correctnessŽ and rabidly enforced it to de-legitimize opposition to the war, even unto fried potatoes. Trump stuck to the old conservative playbook but played the part magnani-mously. He said it was pure political correctnessŽ to put Tubman on the front of the $20 bill.Ž He added, I think Har-riet Tubman is fantastic, I would love to „ I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination. Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill.Ž His response struck me as woefully and sadly dismissive, spoken like a plan-tation owner who would free his slaves if he only could. But he cant. The planta-tion would go to ruin. He says he might be willing to take ol black granny out of the fields, relieve her from picking cotton, and bring her into the Big House to do household chores, such as polishing Gen. Jacksons boots. Once again, Massa has no clue. Harriet Tubman is a force to be reckoned with. She has come to collect her due. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

OPINIONRemember the issues this electionThere are, or should be, real issues in this presidential election, but they are often obscured by the fog of histrion-ics, bad behavior, hyperbole and plain stupidity. Will voters weigh those issues? Will journalists cover them with as much relish as we cover the process and showman-ship? Surely, some will and hopefully will be joined by others. Here, then, are several basic issues serious candidates should address and serious voters should consider. Q The U.S. role in the world: After all the turmoil, wars and inconclusive under-takings in recent decades, some people want to essentially withdraw. But our economic, military and cultural power inevitably and deeply involve us in world affairs. We should debate what our role must be, but not whether that role exists. Q Terrorism, including ISIS: Instead of demagoguery, we need rational ideas. These must recognize the need to work with Muslims and not stigmatize them all, give military support to a mainly Sunni force, and meet the intelligence, eco-nomic, political, police and social media challenges of the battle. This threat is not existential (endangering our countrys existence) but it obviously endangers the safety of Americans and others. It must be defeated. Q Nuclear proliferation: We must prevent this, to avoid regional arms races (especially in the Mideast and North-east Asia) and deny terrorists the ulti-mate weapon. Will candidates continue our policy to oppose proliferation? Will they abandon the agreement with Iran, which would end inspections and let Iran resume its nuclear program? And how can we partner with Russia and China to curb the spread? Q The economy: Our country must adapt to a world economy where other nations play a growing part. Widespread trade is vital for that, so we cant reflex-ively condemn all pacts which expand it. Yet in that context, we must ensure a robust share in this economy and pro-tect our standard of living. What does this mean for education, technological innovation, infrastructure investment and reorienting our role in the service and production sectors? Q Climate change: With scientists consensus that this is real and caused by humans, we should agree on the need to act even if we disagree about the details. But selfish, short-sighted corporations and their partisan allies blindly resist, despite the planet-wide danger to cities, econo-mies, political stability and lives. Florida is particularly vulnerable. We need techni-cally viable remedies strongly backed by government. Q Energy: This is linked to alleviating climate change. And the right policies also can bolster our place in the world econo-my, as we develop technologies for sus-tainable, nonpolluting energy. While we still need oil and coal, simply finding more is not a responsible, long-term solution. But will candidates defy obstructionist businesses that are locked into old ways, or promote a necessary transition? Q Immigration: On this emotional issue, we need secure borders and laws that are realistic, enforceable and humane. Demo-crats and Republicans have made such proposals but extremists have paralyzed action. We must break the deadlock. Q Prejudice: Deplorably, even after we twice elected a black president, this fes-ters „ and not based only on race. His-panics, Muslims and gays also endure bigotry. The next president must build on President Obamas efforts to combat these prejudices, such as by helping to heal fractured police-community relations and fighting homophobic discrimination thats rationalized as religious freedom. Q Health care: The Affordable Care Act profoundly reformed our system „ giving millions more people access to coverage even if they have pre-existing conditions and making other improvements. But we can make further progress, to cover everyone by insurance, provide a public alternative to private plans, and mitigate higher premium costs. In this rich country, decent health care should be a right. Q Medical research: Will the next president continue or even expand President Obamas initiative against cancer? Also needed is strong federal funding to study heart disease, diabetes, strokes, AIDS and other health threats. Q Guns: How much longer will paranoia overwhelm reason? How much lon-ger will politicians who value their careers more than shooting victims lives cower before the NRA „ and oppose sensible gun controls that even the NRA once sup-ported? We need more profiles in courage from prospective presidents. Q Judicial appointments: Regardless of who replaces Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, this is crucial „ for all court levels. Presidents should not seek litmus testŽ commitments about future cases, for that would compromise judges objectivity and independence. Still, a pres-ident will rightly name jurists who share a basic philosophy of the Constitution „ whether it is calcified in the views of 1787 or subject to changing interpretations for changing times. Candidates should fully explain their constitutional philosophy. Q Computer privacy and security: As technology advances faster than we can cope, we face critical questions. What laws are needed to protect security and privacy? What technical safeguards should be developed for those ends? And what authority should police have or not have to override privacy? Other questions also will arise as we race to keep up with new capabilities. While some candidates deal intelligently with such issues, too much of the time surliness is detracting from the substance. We journalists must help reverse that. But ultimately, voters, and not just a relative few, must declare with their ballots that democracy needs more than entertaining campaigns, it needs enlight-ening ones. Q „ Roger Buckwalter of Tequesta is a retired editorial page editor of The Jupiter Courier.Tubman should grace the $20 billHarriet Tubman was literally a freedom fighter. The MosesŽ of the Under-ground Railroad liberated herself and dozens of others from slavery over the years in a biopic-worthy life of bravery and idealism. She has now been selected to eventually replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, bumping him to the back in the worst defeat for Old Hickory since John Quincy Adams stoleŽ the presidency from him in 1824. The political imperative at work here is obvious „ find a woman, preferably a minority, to downgrade one of the dead white males dominating the currency. But the images on the nations currency arent set in stone, and tastes change. Surely some fans of Grover Cleveland were rubbed the wrong way when Jack-son supplanted him on the $20 in 1928 (Cleveland himself, improbably, replaced George Washington). And Tubman is inarguably an exemplary figure. She escaped from a Maryland plantation in 1849, walking some 90 miles to her freedom. Tubmans story has been repeated to generations of schoolchil-dren and is so well-worn „ she was guided by the North Star and aided by the Underground Railroad „ that it is easy to forget the terror and pathos of it. Tubman knew the brutality of slavery. As a young woman, she had been griev-ously injured by a metal weight thrown by an overseer. She left her family behind when she set out for the North. Then she repeatedly returned in trips to save fam-ily members and others. The missions were hazardous (she carried a pistol) and sometimes involved near-escapes. During the Civil War, she served as a nurse and a scout, and in later years, she was a suffragist. That said, Tubman is obviously no match for the founders and presidents on the currency now. But if power and influence are the only metric, how do you recognize the contribution of all those who were made deliberately pow-erless? Tubman is properly understood as a symbol of all the nameless persons held in bondage in early America and of our countrys greatest reform movement, abolitionism. Meanwhile, Andrew Jackson shouldnt be relegated to the ash heap of history. Despite his flaws (he was a slave owner who causally disregarded the humanity of American Indians), he is a formidable American figure who, as a general, won the War of 1812 and, as president, firmly defended the Union from nascent South-ern secessionism. If the standards of the 21st century are to be retroactively applied to every significant figure of our past, few will pass the test. One of the ironies of American slavery is that it made clear „ self-evident, one might say „ to those suffering under it the deep truth of the natural rights that undergird the American experi-ment. Tubman recalled thinking prior to her escape, Theres two things Ive got a right to, and these are, Death or Liberty „ one or the other I mean to have.Ž Is it possible to utter a more American sentiment? In an era of ethnic and gen-der bean counting, everyone wants to keep score, but Harriet Tubman belongs to all of us. She wont just appear on the twenty, but grace it.

He treated her gently, and everything was per-fect. Then his love turned lethal. Clooney began to stalk her, lying in wait and attack-ing. Esmeralda feared for her life. Clooney did not ever draw blood, but I was right there and intervened instantly,Ž says Deborah Wood of Hillsboro, Ore. I was truly afraid he would seriously hurt her or even kill her.Ž Clooney is 12 pounds of big, powerful cat. Esmeralda is 5 pounds of passive dog. In the past, Clooney lived happily with the two papillons Ms. Wood had when she adopted the cat. After the death of her last papillon, she looked for a small, gentle dog that Clooney would like and adopted Esmeralda, a Chihuahua mix. But after their auspicious beginning, Clooney became increasingly aggressive toward the little dog. He batted at her with his paw, making her cower or run. He attacked when she came in through the door. The attacks began as swats of his paw with the claws in, and eventually became full attacks with him grabbing the dog and rabbit-kicking her,Ž Ms. Wood says. Esmeralda shook in fear when wed return from walks and would struggle to not come inside.Ž Ms. Wood is an experienced pet owner, and as the aggression problem developed, she tried everything to make the situation work. She separated the two, placed Cloo-ney on Prozac prescribed by her veterinarian and fed a cat food meant to have calming properties. She placed a Feliway diffuser in each room to help Clooney feel relaxed and dosed the water dish with Rescue Remedy. She had her veterinarian perform blood work on Clooney to rule out thyroid and other medical problems that can cause aggression. She gave Clooney attention on his own and played with him every day. For many cases of feline aggression, these steps would have resolved the problem, but nothing worked. Clooney was increasingly obsessed with Esmeralda. The day Ms. Wood knew she needed to rehome one of them was when the smoke detector went off in Esmeraldas room because the battery needed replacing. While I wrestled the ladder into the room, Clooney darted between my feet and attacked Esmeralda,Ž Ms. Wood says. Imag-ine a cat running into a room with a blaring smoke detector screeching away. That is a cat that wants to attack.Ž Making the decision to place one of her pets in a new home was agonizing. Ms. Wood loved Clooney, and shed had him longer „ four years. If the aggression toward the dog had started when I adopted her, I would have given up the dog,Ž Ms. Wood says. How-ever, by the time it developed, I was really bonded to both of them.Ž Ultimately, Ms. Wood decided to rehome Clooney. He was the one who was aggressive, and I feared that if I kept him, I would have problems between him and future pets. Keeping Esmeralda gives me the ability to have future pets in the household with her. I was fortunate that both pets were very adoptable. If one had not been adoptable, I would have kept that one.Ž After trying desperately to place Clooney with someone she knew, including offering to pay for his pet insurance and promoting him on Facebook, Ms. Wood turned to a local shelter that specializes in cats. Cloo-ney was adopted within two days of becom-ing available. Its easy to give people grief for making the decision to place a pet, but Ms. Woods story is not uncommon. She says friends shared stories of pets who had attacked and even killed other pets. All said they wished they had rehomed the animals earlier. I struggle with the fact that I do not know the adopter, but it was the best choice I had under the circumstances. Those feel-ings are balanced by Esmeraldas happiness. She wags her tail when we come home rather than shaking in fear.Ž Q Pets of the Week>> Patton is a 3-year-old, 49-pound male mixed breed dog that prefers the company of people to that of other dogs.>> Pepper is a 6-year-old female domestic shorthair cat that needs a patient human to coax her from her shyness.To adopt or foster a petThe Peggy Adams Ani-mal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches is located at 3100/3200 Military Trail in West Palm Beach.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 NEWS A7 A new report has just been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes that most homeowners make when selling their home, and a 9 Step System that can help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money. This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in todays market. The fact of the matter is that nearly three quarters of homesellers dont get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and worse financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market.

The days are longer, the snowbirds are gone and our roads are wide open. Now we can venture out and have a little fun. So lets make sure our vehicles are up for it, too. Q Wash and wax … It might seem like an obvious place to start, but the importance of a good wash and wax cannot be stressed enough. This is the time of year we see the greatest tem-peratures and the longest sun exposure. A dirty car is just begging for scratches and tiny debris embedded in the paint. Even worse is oxidization in unprotect-ed clear coats that make what was once a shiny luster into a hazy marble finish. A thorough wash removes harmful debris, and a good wax provides a need-ed extra layer of protection. So this is a good place to start. Remember to do it a couple of more times over the summer months. Q Clean interior … In the same way dirt can become embedded into the exteriors hot paint, it can also affect interior soft plastics like the dashboard. Plus, old fast food bags have a particu-larly offensive odor after spending a hot afternoon on the back seat floor. Q Check battery … Heat is a huge enemy of a cars battery. Our tropical climate is a killer for the cars power source and, unfortunately, the most tell-tale sign of a problem with a battery is a dead one. But if a battery is more than 4 years old and/or the car starts to feel like it is taking longer to start up, be ready to replace. A small investment might prevent a large headache. Q Check fluids … Fluids are as vital to a car as blood is to us. Make sure the heart of your car, its engine, has enough to pump and that it is free of toxins. It only takes a few minutes to check the oil and coolant. Do this when the car has cooled down, and it will prevent a catastrophe in the heat. Also, respect the gauges and warning lights; a car rarely likes running a fever. Q Horn … Hey, its Florida. When everyone else is honking, you should be able to honk, too. Q Shade … Finding a haven from the sunlight is worth it, even if it means parking farther away from the shops. A vehicles interior is like an oven when the car sits in the sun for hours. Not only can a hot car create problems we all hate, such as a scorching seat belt, but also it can accelerate deterioration on many interior components. In places with no shade, its easy to make some with a collapsible sunshade. This is a simple answer that costs less than $10 at most retail stores. Avoid steering wheel covers, however, because over time some can slip during driving. Q Window tint … Its not just for limos anymore. Anyone who has out-door parking for home and/or work will find an immediate cooling effect even from a mild window tinting. Q Crack a window … More than just shade, ventilation is an automotive inte-rior lifesaver. Of course, were also in the season where a rainstorm can dump a buckets worth of water at a moments notice. One solution is a vent visor that runs along the top edge of a side win-dow and provides a secure lip of protec-tion. Like a little window awning, it lets fresh air pass through the car but keeps water out. Q Windshield wipers … Intense and spontaneous rainstorms happen any time of day around these parts, but especially toward late afternoon when so many of us are on the road head-ed home from work. Now is the time to remember to keep the first line of defense strong by replacing your wind-shield wipers. Q Recharge A/C … It used to be that an air-conditioning failure was an expensive problem. It still can be, but most cars built from the early 1990s for-ward utilize a refrigerant called R-134a. Often weak A/C is just a lack of this gas. Many retail and auto-parts stores sell an at-home recharge kit for $30 or less. I know all of these tips wont be new to everyone, but my hope is that every-one reading this learns a new car care suggestion or two, and then makes a couple of improvements that will add to the life of his/her car. Its just us down here for the summer, so were all in it together. Q myles Pr omotional/Mark eting Items! GET NO TICED!

Without that, its like plan-ning to fight a war against an enemy youve never seen. Using a broad spectrum of analytical tools, scientists from the Florida cam-pus of The Scripps Research Instit ute in Jupiter have shown how sometimes small, often practically imperceptible, structural changes in a key breast can-cer receptor are directly linked to regulating molecules and can produce predictable effects in curbing or accel-erating cancer growth. This predictive statistical approach, published recently in the journal Molecular Systems Biology, moves science one step closer to the develop-ment of more effective structure-based drug design to treat the disease. Our long-term goal,Ž said team leader Kendall Nettles, an associate professor at TSRI, is to be able to pre-dict proliferative or anti-proliferative activity of receptor molecule complexes by identifying structural changes that lead to specif ic outc omes. In many cases, we can identify structural fea-tures that could help guide more effec-tive drug development.Ž To identify the root of estrogen receptor cell signaling that drives breast cancer cell proliferation, Mr. Nettles and his colleagues synthesized more than 240 estrogen receptor bind-ing molecules (ligandsŽ) that led the cancer to proliferate, using structural analysis to determine the basis for receptor activity. Many current drugs target signaling proteins like the estrogen receptor. For example, the drug tamoxifen blocks the estrogen receptors pro-liferative effects of naturally occur-ring estrogen in breast cancer cells, but can increase the risk of uterine cancer. Research associate Sathish Srinivasan, a co-first author of the study with research associate Jerome Nwachuk-wu, pointed out the new research sug-gests that certain structural changes might be made to the binding pocket to eliminate this negative side effect. Drugs like tamoxifen can have differ-ent effects in different tissues because of structural changes often not dis-cernible using traditional methods,Ž Mr. Srinivasan said. Our approach reveals some mechanisms associated with tissue specificity and several pre-dictive structural features.Ž To further test these signaling models, the team solved the atomic struc-ture of some 76 different estrogen receptor-ligand complexes to better understand these responses. We can predict some of these effects by measuring the distance between two specific carbon atoms of the estro-gen receptor,Ž said Mr. Nwachukwu. Mr. Nettles concluded, This is the first time we have been able to use these atomic structures to iden-tify how very small changes from the ligands give diffe rent outc omes, leading us towards the goal of predicting which ligands are going to make the most effective treatments for breast cancer.Ž Q The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience recently received the Life Sciences South Florida Lifees Award at eMerge Americas in Miami, which brings together the top government offi-cials and business leaders from around the world to explore how public-private partnerships can leverage technologies to transform our communities. The Lifees Award honors organizations, like MPFI, that are leaders in the life scienc-es and have demonstrated a commit-ment to furthering the industry through education and collaboration. Enriching science education is an important component of the Max Planck Society philosophy around the world,Ž said Dr. David Fitzpatrick, MPFI CEO and scientific director. The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neurosci-ence is committed to offering programs and activities to enhance interest in and foster understanding of bioscience research at all levels of education. We also seek opportunities, like taking part in Florida Atlantic Universitys Jupiter Life Science Initiative, where we can collaborate with higher education and other life science institutions to further the industrys efforts both locally and worldwide.Ž MPFI was nominated for the Lifees Award by Raquel Rodriguez with McDonald Hopkins, LLC. Categories include demonstration of student train-ing and research activities, benefit to the scientific community and demon-stration of community partnership. MPFI has demonstrated an immense commitment to the development of our South Florida life sciences indus-try,Ž said Saif Ishoof, vice president for engagement at Florida Internation-al University, who oversees the LSSF consortium on behalf of the executive committee of LSSF and chairman, Presi-dent Mark B. Rosenberg of FIU. The opportunities MPFI provides our local students and the research they conduct sets them apart, creating a large impact on our community.Ž The institute is among five recipients to receive the inaugural award, which was presented by LSSF, whose members include leaders of the top educational, economic development and research institutions in the region. LSSF seeks to establish an industry cluster in South Florida focused on life sciences, bio-technology, pharmaceuticals, diagnos-tics and information technology. Among the programs listed during MPFIs recognition is its partnership with Florida Atlantic University in the creation of a doctoral program in inte-grative biology with a concentration in neuroscience. The program, known as IBAN (Integrative Biology and Neuro-science), provides students the oppor-tunity to explore cutting-edge questions in neuroscience through the integra-tion of multiple disciplines, different model systems and a broad spectrum of technologies. In addition, the award recognized MPFI and FAUs collabora-tion with the University of Bonn (Bonn, Germany), and the Center for Advanced European Studies and Research (Bonn, Germany), to globalize education in brain research with an all-new Interna-tional Max Planck Research School for Brain & Behavior. Finally, MPFIs community engagement through events, like the Brain Bee Challenge and public lectures at local high schools, were highlighted as examples of how the institute is sharing its wealth of knowledge and furthering scientific education among even the youngest aspiring scientists.

HEALTHY LIVING25 years of trauma excellenceThis year, St. Marys Medical Center and Palm Beach Childrens Hospital proudly celebrate 25 years of trauma excellence. For more than two decades, we have provided life-saving treatments through our Level I Trauma Center, the highest designation given by the state. Our trauma team is led by award-winning physicians and nurses who work around the clock to deliver prompt, high-quality trauma care for patients in critical condition. Throughout the years, weve been privileged to heal patients and their loved ones when they need us the most. Thanks to the collabo-ration with our local EMS/fire rescue we are able to provide these services quickly and efficiently in order to save lives. As I speak with the community and the patients we serve, I am constantly reminded of the miraculous work that is accomplished at St. Marys Medical Center and the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital every day. To celebrate our past trauma patients and honor our hard-working health-care team we will be hosting our 4th annual Trauma Survivor Luncheon on Wednesday, May 17, at 12:30 p.m. at the Hanley Centers Resource Room. Patients, their families and caregivers are invited to reunite with the medical professionals who played a role in their treatment and heal-ing processes and to share their experi-ence with other sur-vivors. If you are a trauma survivor and would like to attend the luncheon, please RSVP by May 11 at 882-9100. In honor of National Trauma Aware-ness Month, were also hosting our 2016 Trauma Symposium in an effort to pro-mote further education and growth for our trauma team and other medical pro-fessionals. As part of our commitment to the communitys well-being, this event will include educational courses for trauma care specialists and addition-al subspecialties, as well as educational workshops to help provide our medical professionals with the necessary train-ing to provide the best possible trauma care. What is a Trauma Center? When patients receive a traumatic injury resulting from a motor vehicle crash, a serious fall or a head injury, chances of survival improve greatly if definitive treatment is received within the first 60 minutes. Trauma centers around the nation are dedicated to providing this prompt treatment for the best possible outcomes. These centers have the specially trained medical personnel along with advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment needed to treat patients with the most severe injuries. Trauma cen-ters are classified by the level of care they provide: Level IV (lowest) to Level I (highest). What Type of Patients Are Treated? An emergency room treats more com-mon illnesses and injuries such as a broken bone, back pain, cuts and con-cussions. A trauma center sees patients who have multiple fractures, possible paralysis, punctured lungs, brain inju-ries or who have gone into hemorrhagic shock, which is significant blood loss as a result of traumatic injuries. Trauma is the leading cause of death for individuals under the age of 40 and has a high mortality rate for the elderly population because of traumatic brain injuries resulting from falls. As the only Level I Trauma Center from Northern Palm Beach County to Orlando, we have implemented numerous measures to help reduce these numbers. Expert Care: The trauma teams at St. Marys Medical Center and Palm Beach Childrens Hospital are available on a 24-hour basis, or are on-call and able to quickly arrive at the hospital. These specialists may include: Q Trauma surgeons Q Anesthesiologists Q Orthopedic surgeons Q Thoracic (chest) surgeons Q Neurosurgeons Q Ophthalmologists Q Cardiac surgeons Q Critical care physicians Q Radiologists These physicians must complete trauma education and other continuing education programs. Nurses and other health care personnel in a trauma center also receive advanced training to care for the most critically injured patients. We also offer advanced surgical capabilities and critical care units that pro-vide constant treatment and monitoring of severely injured patients. We are honored to have the privilege of healing the community follow-ing a traumatic injury for more than two decades.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY THE OLD FASHIONED BARBERSHOP 9270 W. Indiantown Road C5, J upiter, FL Biologists estimate there are 100 to 180 Florida panthers left in the wild, a single breeding population hemmed in by years of development into a south-west corner of the state south of the Caloosahatchee River: primarily Collier County, as well as Monroe, Hendry and parts of Lee counties. Federal criteria for consideration to remove panthers from the endangered species list calls for three separate populations of at least 240 cats, including in central or north Florida, and possibly other Southeast-ern states. I would agree with that statement, its more aspirational than realistic,Ž said Aliese Priddy, vice chairwoman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-servation Commission and owner of JB Ranch near Immokalee, which sits on 9,300 acres in panther territory. Ms. Priddy estimates that she loses as much as 10 percent of her calves to panthers. Last year, she helped draft an FWC statement that touted panther recovery efforts as already resulting in major successesŽ and shifting the focus to pan-ther management instead of recovery. Twenty years ago, this subspecies of Florida panther (Puma concolor coryi) was nearly extinct. Wildlife experts believe there were fewer than 30 left in the wild. In 1995, female Texas cougars were introduced into the population to help increase genetic diversity and reproduction. It worked relatively well. But even with only a few hundred cats or less, that has led to more conflict with humans, including now-record numbers of panthers being hit and killed on the road. More panthers were killed in April than ever before in a single month. Through April 29, nine had died, all but two killed along Southwest Florida highways and roads. There is no record of the panthers ever attacking a person. Panther recovery has been successful in that it brought them back from the very brink of extinction,Ž said Jennifer Hecker, director of natural resource pol-icy for Conservancy of Southwest Flori-da. But now were concerned about the fate of the panther because even though they have increased, the deaths are far outpacing the documented births. We know that a lot of kittens dont survive to adulthood naturally, and were seeing these road mortalities climb steeply.Ž The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has the final say on panther recovery criteria. The national agency, along with the FWC and representatives of the National Park Service, private interests including ranchers, landholders and conservationists, will soon review new science including panther population modelingŽ as they consider revising the definition of a successful panther recov-ery, said Kipp Frohlich, deputy director with the FWCs Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. The current criteria for panther recovery was cre-ated in 2008, Mr. Frohlich said, and is in some ways outdated. Mr. Frohlich, as well as a spokesman for the USFWS, declined to provide more information about how the group might change panther recovery criteria, since it has yet to meet. Ms. Priddy suggested there is not enough undeveloped land left to accom-modate two more panther populations as current federal criteria requires. In that case, she said, the questions are: Do we just say were never going to achieve it? Do we say weve done a great job where we are, lets just focus on keeping what we have?Ž Meanwhile, conservationists say housing and other development contin-ues to be the greatest threat to panthers shrinking habitat. Ranches and privately held land such as Ms. Priddys provide valuable natu-ral territory for panthers, keeping the large open spaces they need to roam and reproduce intact along with public areas such as the Big Cypress National Preserve and Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. The state and oth-ers are considering ways to financially compensate ranchers for providing land and a food source that helps protect an endangered species. The Seminole Tribe raises cattle on thousands of acres in South Florida, both in and outside of panther ter-rain. Alex Johns, the Seminoles natural resource director, said that 8 to 10 per-cent calf loss is normal, while on a por-tion of the ranch next to prime panther habitat in Big Cypress Preserve, 22 per-cent of calves are lost. He attributes the difference mostly to panthers, as well as bears, coyotes and other animals. There is an economic loss to us,Ž Mr. Johns said. But there again, the panther was there first so we understand and accept it.Ž But he adds, If it has an economic impact on private landholders, the pan-ther is going to be looked at in a negative light. And thats not necessarily good for the panther. Conservationists, they have to understand the (panther) population is increasing because the private land-holder accommodates the panther by keeping the habitat intact. And theyre providing a food source ƒ Without us thered be condominiums and houses and there would be no habitat.Ž As Floridas population continues to grow, many private landowners have a strong financial incentive to sell land to developers. I think its fair to say that most private land in Florida is under some level of development threat,Ž said David Shindle, Florida panther coordinator for the USFWS and a biologist who has worked with panthers since 1998. For instance, a proposal initiated by some of the areas largest and most pow-erful landholders is aiming for develop-ment on about 45,000 acres of panther habitat in Collier County. Those include FWC commissioner Ms. Priddys JB Ranch as well as Alico Inc., Barron Col-lier Investments and Collier Enterprises Management, Consolidated Citrus Lim-ited Partnership, Heller Bros. Packing Corp. and others. The proposal is called the Eastern Collier Multiple Species Habitat Con-servation Plan. It includes an inciden-tal take permitŽ primarily to allow for the displacement of panthers and other endangered or threatened species that get in the way of developments. But the permit also overrides Endangered Spe-cies Act protections that define takeŽ as to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such con-duct.Ž Conservation groups and other stakeholders plan to work with the landhold-ers over the course of the next year and a half or more to finalize plans. The landowners have submitted a draft that has many shortcomings and we see this process as the mechanism to make that plan much better,Ž said Eliza-beth Fleming, senior Florida representa-tive of Defenders of Wildlife. Ms. Hecker with the Conservancy said, The biggest concern I have is that regulatory protections would be relaxed in an effort to gain support of these large landowners. And certainly while we want to gain their support we cant do it at the expense of upholding the Endangered Species Act and all the pro-tections it provides for the species.Ž Q PANTHERFrom page 1 COURTESY FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION Some worry the panther regulatory protec-tions might be relaxed to support landowners.

While the rest of the continent swells like a pregnant mother with the bounty of field-grown summer food, the rhythms of summer work in Palm Beach, Charlotte, Lee or Col-lier Counties are entirely different. In Palm Beach Countys Boynton Beach, meanwhile, fourth-generation farmer Steve Bedner and his wife, Marie Bedner, do the summer differently than some other local farmers: They put their 1,500 acres of com-mercial crops and their 80 acres of crops grown just for local people in fallow fields, and go north to find the best produce they Local farmers find their summer rhythmsSEE FARMING, A14 X COURTESYPHOTO

The plants arent too happy. So when we come out of season, we still purchase from small farms in the north that have the same growing methods we do.Ž But the Bedners dont just buy food sight unseen from these Garden State farms „ they drive up there to inspect not just the produce theyll sell to Palm Beach County customers, but the grow-ing methods. Were looking for fields that are in good condition, where the produce sometimes isnt the prettiest but the taste and quality are there,Ž explains Mrs. Bedner. We get to know their growing habits. We go to different parts and see what areas are growing which produce.Ž And back in Palm Beach County, where a lot of Penn sylv anians and New Jerseyans live, a good debate is always simmering like a good soup: Whose tomatoes and corn are better, the Bed-ners or the Garden States? That goes without saying.Come late summer, the family starts leaning toward fall and winter with a lot of hard work. Again. We start prepping the land at the end of August or the beginning of Sep-tember „ weve pushed it back far-ther and farther in recent years because weve encountered so much rain that its not worthwhile (to rush),Ž Mrs. Bedner notes. And finally, about 20 weeks from now, the Bedners offer a kick-off nod to their northern clients by doing a fall festival the last weekend in September. Since we cant grow pumpkins, we (import them). We make a faux field, plant cucumber vines and place pump-kins. We will start picking our own pro-duce about mid-November.Ž Thats one way to handle a seasonal crop that does not do well in Florida. In Charlotte County, customers relish the local produce „ and in the case of the 85-acre Worden Farm in Charlotte County, the local, completely organic produce „ which is why the Wordens, Eva and Chris, host in-season gatherings to teach people how to can, dry or freeze their food for summer use, not winter use as elsewhere. Our farm membership program (boxes of fresh food delivered weekly from as far south as Naples to as far north as Sarasota) ends in mid-April, and our farmers markets end at the end of May,Ž explains Eva Worden. As good fortune would have it, however, people can now begin signing up for next years farm membership with the Wordens „ $580 or about $29 a week for boxes of the freshest organic produce delivered for 20 weeks, from December to April, right to the doors of homes, schools, churches, marinas, clubs, res-taurants or other locations, as requested. After May we arent harvesting any vegetables, so we have a gradual shift as we ramp down in production,Ž Mrs. Worden says. The six-week period were in right now is when we prepare fields for cover crops. As organic farmers, we grow cover crops, which include a variety of grasses and legumes. They help to fix nitrogen. The grasses help to draw any residual nitrogen from the soil up into the plants and store them until theyre mowed and disked in, and they decompose prior to the (late summer) planting of the veg-etable crop.Ž Meanwhile, as May heats up, the farm still has the same warm-season crops it did in the early fall, Mrs. Worden says: cover squashes like zucchini, yellow squash, pattipans, cucumbers, greens. We still have some carrots and broc-coli, but those will end over the coming weeks, and we have a fair amount of radishes and green beans, still. But the quantity decreases and the challenges of production increase.Ž Thats the truth.With summer comes insect pressureŽ „ shes not talking about politicians running for the White House, by the way „ and the potential for heavy floods. We have found that floods (and stand-ing water in the fields) actually assists in our prevention of detrimental nema-todes (parasitic, microscopic worms that thrive in sand and soil).Ž Q A14 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYOnce again another spring has come and gone and the legislative session for the State of Florida has ended with some winners and some losers. In the losing category this year was Senate Bill 668. Although the Bill passed and was ratified by both the house and senate, Governor Scott recently vetoed the Bill. As a result of the extensive discussion regarding alimony reform, the spotlight, once again, is on the interdependent nature of marriage especially with regard to financial support. There are valid arguments in favor and against this interdependence, but the discussion has laid bare a truth that many may have forgotten. Every party to a relationship has their own agenda. When the agendas coincide, it’s like rowing down a peaceful river; when the agendas cross, it can be like rowing backwards across boulder strewn rapids. Entering into a prenuptial agreement prior to the marriage is one solution. This agreement may address the financial and other issues that could arise, including the possibility of alimony. This agreement supersedes state and federal law except in certain instances and regarding certain issues. But what answer is there for a spouse who is in an unhappy marriage? It is possible to create a post-nuptial agreement that addresses, among other things, alimony. Unlike a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial (after marriage) agreement may also address things like children’s issues, child support, time-sharing, and so on. However, once the parties are married it is difficult to make these arrangements unless both parties agree it is necessary. The only way to be sure that the best and most accurate advice is received is to consult with a qualified attorney. Over the last 27 years of my practice, I have consulted with clients even in successful marriages especially if one party receives an inheritance, non-marital gifts, or other “non-marital” assets. Protecting these assets is not simple or easy but every effort must be made so that the receiving party does not, inadvertently, commingle their separate property with marital assets. Being proactive is critical.

Here, beekeeper Claudia Silveira describes how work for these unique farmers increases rather than diminishes come summer. “This time of year honeybee populations begin to grow and the hives become more active. As plants bloom, grow and reproduce, it’s time to add supers to the hives. “Orange trees are well-known for producing lots of nectar, which honeybees transform in delicious orange-blossom honey — that bloom begins in February and March. “Beekeepers start moving their hives to the orange groves, keeping them there through mid-April, when saw palmetto is in bloom. A native palm, it‘s one of the main nectar sources for honeybees from now into summer. “For beekeepers, when nectar ows it’s also time to split the hives and double or triple the amount of colonies. We have to control swarm-ing of their hives and start help with honeybee rescue, for the swarming season. “The black mangrove and sea grape will begin their blooming now, too, along the coast, although development has diminished the production of this delicious honey. “By June, the cabbage palm and melaleuca will be in bloom, supplementing the nectar for-age for honeybees. “By July, most honey has been produced in the apiaries and processed by local beekeep-ers in their honey houses. This is the end of the main late spring-summer nectar ow. “But there’s a second nectar ow that will start again with Brazilian pepper. By September, it becomes a main fall nectar ow and the bees will produce a rich and medicinal Brazilian pep-per honey. “Few people know that the Brazilian pepper nectar will be a great help for honeybees to survive the winter, when no nectar is available.” Note: Claudia Silveira ( PureRawHoney) sells her honey in Naples at the Pine Ridge Farms Market on Sunday afternoons, and in Fort Myers at the Green Market at Alli-ance for the Arts on Saturday mornings.

We are proud to have a team of talented and skilled nurses who provide compassionate care each and every day.Thanks for caring for our patients, the Medical Center and our community! Learn more at 1210 S. Old Dixie Hwy. l Jupiter, FL 33458 MONEY & INVESTINGReport misses mark on likelihood of disruptive innovationsThe global consulting company, McKinsey & Co, published a provocative research report entitled Diminishing Returns: Why Investors May Need to Lower Their ExpectationsŽ in late April. As you can probably guess by the title, the conclusion of the authors is not positive news for investors. The paper asserts that the high overall investment returns over the past couple of decades are not sustainable and that returns over the next 20 to 30 years will be much lower. So why does McKinsey believe this? And should an investor buy into this prediction? The reports basic premise is that many of the key drivers of investment performance since the 1980s are either fading or reversing themselves. For example, it points to declining interest rates producing outsized returns on bond portfolios. Clearly, with rates in most industrialized counties now close to zero, rates cannot fall any further so bond investors can no lon-ger expect price appreciation on their bonds to supplement their low interest returns. In another example, the paper shows how declining inflation and wages have significantly added to corporate profits. But now wages are starting to rise and overall inflation seems like it has bottomed out as well and is starting to increase. The report also illustrates several other examples of other long-term nega-tive trends for corporations, including increased competition from emerging markets and how the Internet and better infrastructure have made it easier for start-up businesses to steal market share from large corporations and compress margins. So in reviewing the McKinsey document, I think some of their conclusions are spot on, while I would disagree with others. Can investors expect to see 5 percent yields from Treasury bonds in the near future? Probably not. In fact, I would expect to see potentially negative returns for very highly rated bonds as interest rates revert to higher, longterm averages.But I completely disagree with the report with regard to corporate profits. In the short term, higher wages will drag down profits. But in the long-term, this trend creates wealthier new custom-ers that have the ability to consume a greater amount of goods going forward. Similarly, competition will bring down corporate profits in the near term but this will also lead to more effi-ciencies and innovation going forward, which can only benefit various indus-tries. History has shown that a lack of competition will lead to stagnation within an industry. Just think what communication would be like today if AT&T was never broken up and still was the only telephone and Internet provider in the country. But I think the biggest flaw in the report was the assumption that the sta-tus quo would prevail and there would be no great disruptive breakthroughs in the years ahead. Who can say where the next personal computer or Internet revolution will come from? Will it be virtual reality? Artificial intelligence? Biotechnological break-through? These unexpected innovations, in my opinion, are what really will drive investment returns as companies rush to profit off these advances. This is why I am still optimistic with regard to investing and why I think the pundits will be shown to be completely wrong on this topic. Q eric

PALM BEACH BROKERAGE | 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 337 | Palm Beach, FL 33480 561.659.3555 | 4H RANCH AT LAKE MARIAN | $22,521,555 | Web: 0076683 | Wally Turner | 561.301.2060 KOVELS: ANTIQUESPass the cruet set, please BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL Cruet sets, especially those made of sterling silver with attractive glass bottles, have been popular with collec-tors and those who like to use them at parties. The stand for a set usually is a silver pedestal that supports a revolving tray with holes or holders for three to seven bottles or containers. It has a tall handle so it can be easily passed at the table. The sets held an assortment of condiments used on salads „ perhaps oil, vinegars, salt, pepper and dry or wet mustard. A unique cruet set made by Tiffany & Co. was offered for sale by S.J. Shrub-sole, a New York shop, at the 2016 Win-ter Antiques show in New York. The stand was made to look like a circular railroad track with seven railroad cars that rotated around the handle. The engraving simulated wooden siding and had the initials H, NH, & S, 69,Ž which most likely stood for New Haven, Hart-ford & Springfield Railroad. A stamped makers mark on the bottom dates it about 1853. The 14-inch-high piece was priced $37,500. Q: I have a copper shell casing dated 1918-19 with the name VerdunŽ and an eagle standing on a shield with a star on it. The words Nevers … FranceŽ are engraved underneath. Can you give me any idea what something like this is worth? A: You have a piece of trench, a form of folk art for which soldiers in World War I cut and decorated metal casings from bullets and mortar shells to form useful objects or souve-nirs. The Battle of Verdun was one of the longest battles in the war, raging from February to Decem-ber 1916. There was a large military population at camps and hospitals in the area around Nevers. Your copper shell might have been made to com-memorate the battle and the time spent in Nevers recovering from wounds sustained. Or, a soldier stationed at Nevers from 1918-19 might have made this from a shell casing found at Verdun. Trench art is popular. Your casing is worth about $200. Q: I am looking for some information on a Westmoreland milk glass 8-inch plate that is heart-shaped. Its hand-painted with the Roses and Bows pattern. A: Westmoreland Glass Co. of Grapeville, Pa., made glass from 1889-1984. Roses and Bows, which the company called decoration No. 32, was one of Westmorelands most popular decora-tions. It was made from the 1950s until 1984, usually with two roses. A bowl like yours sells for $20-$30. Tip: Reverse-painted lamps should never be washed. Just dust them.

All of that is about to change as the company puts down roots in a store-front along Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach. Although, we have been a thriving theater company for over a decade, we were more or less nomadic throughout Palm Beach County,Ž David Hyland, producing artistic director at Take Heed, said in a statement. Look for a mix of events. Take Heed also runs the improv comedy company MOD27, which has per-formed throughout the state and in New York; Toronto; Austin; Phoenix and Chi-cago. Right now, the Take Heed Theater space is a blank canvas, and changing that takes money. The company plans an open house and silent auction from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Satur-day, May 7. Items up for auction include a tour of a local television station and lunch with a news personality, concert, museum and zoo tickets, restaurant gift cards, photog-raphy and massage packages, artwork and more.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail I was in a shop this week in which the manager was extolling a set of china. Oh, its Limoges,Ž she said in a reverential tone. After all, nothing but the finest porcelain came from this French factory, right? Well, not quite.Limoges is the name of a city thats a couple hundred miles south of Paris. And, yes, Limoges is known as a European epicenter for porcelain manufacturing by companies that include Haviland and Guerin. But its not a factory in and of itself.As with anything, from automobile makers to manufacturers of fine china, quality can vary. There are amazingly detailed pieces of Haviland china, for example. Before Walter Scott Lenox opened his factory in New Jersey around the turn of the last century, early U.S. presidential administrations ordered dinner services from Europe to use at the White House. Mary Todd Lincoln ordered a Haviland set in 1861; pieces remain in the White House collection, and they are beautifully detailed, with a hand-painted eagle design. In automotive terms, thats Cadillac quality. But many a grandmother a halfcentury later prided herself on her service of Haviland china, not realizing that the floral motif of her Sunday dinnerware was a decal-transferred design, and not hand-painted. Those would be the Chevrolets of the porcelain world „ solid and dependable, but made in huge quantity. Thats what most people own „ even the Limoges trinket boxes you see seemingly everywhere vary in quality. So now you know.

Cost: $20. The Skinny: This pretty piece by Pickard China is more than a century old, and its a product of its time. The design of the 9-inch bowl is pure Art Nouveau, with its fantasy of pink flowers descending into a matte golden luster glaze. But it also looks ahead to Art Decos streamlined design, which came into vogue in the 1920s, with the angular golden drops that punctuate the flowers. Pickard, which last year created a china service for the White House, is known for its elegant decoration „ often on porcelain blanks made by other companies. I cant identify the signature on this piece but its manufacturers mark dates it to 1910-1912. Finding something thats beautiful and has a history never gets old.

The winning photographs were chosen by Fatime NeJame, president and CEO of the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, who said the quality of the pho-tographs submitted astounded her and she had a hard time choosing a winner. In the end, Chris Kalmbach won the grand prize for his black and white image of the Palm Beach International Airport flyover, off Interstate 95, which earned him a gift basket, a pair of tickets to the show and a $200 gift certificate good for any class offered at the Centre.

LATEST FILMS‘Captain America: Civil War’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesWhats remarkable about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, now in its 13th incarnation with Captain America: Civil War,Ž is how the scale of the proj-ects and sheer number of characters never seem too big. Sure this is its lon-gest movie yet at 147 minutes, but Civil WarŽ doesnt slight anyone, is good for a few laughs and great action scenes and it progresses the MCUs overarching story forward in smart and logical ways. Im not sure anything more could be expected of the $200 million-plus pro-duction. As youve probably seen from the onslaught of Civil WarŽ public-ity, the movie pits Captain America (Chris Evans) versus Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). The reason theyre fighting is a good one: Citing the mass destruc-tion of New York City, Washington D.C., Sokovia (the fictional city ruined in the end of Avengers: Age of UltronŽ) and, at the start of this film, Lagos, Nigeria, Sec-retary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) informs the Avengers that the governments of the world want super-vision over the superheroes. Captain America doesnt want to answer to any-one, and gets Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and later, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), to agree with him. Iron Man thinks someone keeping them in check is a good idea, and has Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Vision (Paul Bettany), newcomer Black Panther (Chad-wick Boseman) and later, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) in his corner. So the teams are chosen, the battle lines are drawn. And when the two sides duke it out on an airport tar-mac, its one of the best, most enjoyable and surprising action sequences Marvel Studios has ever put on film. Moments like this are why we go to these movies, and when theyre done this well we enjoy a special sense of exhilaration thats far more profound than normal. Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo directed the film and, just as they did when directing Captain America: The Winter Sol-dierŽ (2014), they once again pro-vide a thought-provoking dilem-ma. Whereas Winter SoldierŽ dealt with how far government surveil-lance should go, Civil WarŽ debates whether the Avengers should operate freely or only with permission. Given how corrupt government organizations can be, its understandable that Captain America would refuse to trust anything other than his own virtuous instincts. But as Iron Man points out, far too much dam-age has been suffered and things have gone wrong too easily for the Aveng-ers to continue as they are. Both sides have valid points; and more importantly, however, the debate engages the viewer intellectually, which is something movies of this ilk rarely do successfully. Complicating matters is Caps relationship with Winter Soldier, whos framed for a bombing by former Sokovian intelligence agent Helmut Zemo (Daniel Bruhl). Zemos motivations run deeper than just the Winter Soldier, and as they manifest, the plot juicily thickens. Spider-Man and Black Panther make their debuts in the MCU here, and AntMan appears for the first time in an ensemble piece. Panther has the larger role, but Spidey and Ant-Man, thanks to Mr. Holland and Mr. Rudd, nearly steal the movie with their humor and creative fighting talents. It was such a smart move to bring all three characters in: We know how the other Avengers fight, so the twists and turns provided by fresh faces work wonderfully to keep the action dynamic and exciting. With new characters (Doctor StrangeŽ) and sequels (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Ž and Thor: Ragn-arokŽ) on the horizon, it appears the next time we see the Avengers in full could be two years from now in Aveng-ers: Infinity War … Part One.Ž Thats okay. Its time to let others do some heavy lifting for a while, and Captain America: Civil WarŽ delivers enough to keep us satisfied for a long time. Q GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13 FLORIDA WRITERS Gainesville through the eyes and ears of someone who helped make its musicQ Music Everywhere: The Rock and Roll Roots of a Southern Town,Ž by Marty Jourard. University Press of Florida. 224 pages. Hardcover $19.95. What a surprising breath of fresh air this is. Marty Jourards book is an insiders story of how Gainesville developed into an important, though relatively isolated, capital of Ameri-can popular music „ rock and roll in particular. While Mr. Jourard offers a good deal of interesting speculation about why this happened, the fun of the book is in watching it happen. An effective narrative style; a compelling array of facts and profiles; and a low-key, comfortable sense of authority are hallmarks of Marty Jourards infectious blend of remembrance and research. Organized chronologically, Music EverywhereŽ begins at the beginning of rock and roll history, 1955, with a song written by a Gainesville musician named Tommy Durden. That song, soon after recast as Heart-break Hotel,Ž sits on the front porch of the black and white, country and urban music, that in various combinations became the prevail-ing American popular music. Mr. Jourard rocks back and forth between the macrocosm of larg-er trends (the Beatles invasion and takeover, the growth of the hip-pie counterculture) and the daily lives of aspir-ing musicians living in or passing through Floridas heartland. He also notes the commu-nitys happy support of and identifica-tion with a music culture. This some-times means the roll of the University of Florida in supporting live performances and generally interacting with the music culture that is growing up along with the burgeoning university. And then there is the dependable marijuana production. Musicians need audiences, and University of Florida students showed up to hear the cover bands and the bands focused on original songs „ bands that sharpened their skills on and off cam-pus. Can you guess the outstanding musicians you might recognize who are part of Marty Joura-rdss Gainesville R & R tapestry? Well theres Stephen Stills, a strong solo performer better known from his group work in Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and some-times Young). Theres Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, one of the worlds best-selling bands ever. Don Felder and Bernie Leadon went from gigs in Gainesville to becoming part of the endlessly chart-topping Eagles. The list goes on, and the stories Mr. Jourard tells about them are most engaging. Marty Jourard himself hit it big as part of The Motels in the 1980s. The book provides insights into the life of professional musicians, whether famous or obscure or in between. More importantly, it is an effective study of a community. The people writing, per-forming and recording music cannot flourish without the support of others who work in the music industry. It is with a sense of reverence that Mr. Jou-rard writes about the owner of Liphams music company, whose shop became a refuge for the Gainesville musicians. He writes, The musicians and the store served one another; players met other players there, heard other players there, and lusted after the same shiny new guitars that hung behind the coun-ter saying, hold me ... try me ... buy me! The store made money. The music scene has a place you could hang out.Ž Mr. Jourard also reminds us of how important it is for people to put risk money into performance venues and music festivals. He provides a detailed account of how, in Gainesville, these ancillary efforts nourished and were nourished by the creative artists. Many of the musicians who apprenticed in Gainesville bands went on to be part of touring bands and record-ing studio ensembles supporting the performances of headliners like Aretha Franklin and Jackson Browne. If you enjoy entertainment history and biography, this is a book for your collec-tion. If you enjoy reading about aspects of Florida culture, Music EverywhereŽ will be an enjoyable companion. Mr. Jourards compilation of photographs and reproductions of event posters and ads enhances the readers experience. The book also includes chapter notes and an appendix of live performances in Gainesville from 1960 through 1976. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. phil JOURARD dan

Highlighting the show is the winner of the 2016 Pulitzer for Breaking News Photography, by the Reuters photogra-phy staff: Yannis Behrakis, Alkis Kon-stantinidis, Alexandros Avramidis, Ber-nadett Szabo, Laszlo Balogh, Michael Dalder, Srdjan Zivulovic and Stoyan Nenov. They won for a set of photographs that follows migrant refugees hundreds of miles across uncertain boundaries to unknown destinations. It is followed in the gallery by the 2015 Pulitzer, the complete coverage of the Ferguson tragedy and aftermath, which went to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch photography staff composed of David Carson, Laurie Skrivan, Robert Cohen, James Forbes, Christian Gooden, Huy Mach and Lynden Steele, for power-ful images of the despair and anger in Ferguson, Missouri, stunning photo-journalism that served the community while informing the country.Ž Also in this collection is the heartwrenching picture of the Oklahoma City firefighter carrying a baby from wreckage of the just-bombed Alfred H. Murrah Federal Building by 1996 Pulit-zer winner Charles Porter IV of Zuma Press. To round the presentation out there are many single images from the last 45 years and their back stories. The Best in Show Festival 2016 will start at noon, with panels from winners in the show, in the studio on the second floor, featuring Pulitzer winners and editors of their staffs. The opening will be at 6 p.m.The exhibition at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre is one of a series of events across the United States to celebrate the centenary of the Pulitzer Prizes, focusing on former prize win-ners, their prize-winning work and the journalistic and cultural values that the award represent.

It was created by British-American sculptor and West Palm Beach resident Lawrence Holofcener. Ive long been a fan of professional golf and felt inspired to celebrate the careers of the remarkable people who have con-tributed to this wonderful game,Ž said Mr. Holofcener, whose best-known work is the London landmark Allies,Ž showing Churchill and Roosevelt in conversation on a park bench on Bond Street. The sculpture depicts 116 portraits (93 men and 23 women) from Mary, Queen of Scots, an avid golfer whose reign spanned 25 years in the 16th century, to four-time major champion Rory McIlroy. The first in the edition was unveiled during the 2015 British Open and is on the front of the Brit-ish Golf Museum in St. Andrews. Faces of Golf is our resorts most recent addition of artwork and has been a real conversation starter since its installa-tion just prior to the Honda Classic,Ž said James Gelfand, general manager of the PGA National Members Club. Its promi-nent display in the hallway en route to the PGA pro shop and golf courses evidences our respect for the games proud heritage.Ž For more information, visit pgaresort. com, 627-2000.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINO Wine bottle back labels — are they help or hype?As Ive mentioned many times, there is no consumer product that gives a buyer less information about whats in the container than a wine label. On the front, youll see the name of the producer, maybe the grape varietal, alcohol content (more or less), and how much is in the bottle. Thats about it. But the back label? Ive studied them extensively (not having much of a life) and thats a whole different story. Basically, Ive divided them into two categories: the hype label and the help label. The hype label is much more common. Actually, most bottles have two back labels, but one just tells you not to drink the wine if youre planning to get pregnant and operate heavy machinery. I follow that caution to the letter. The other label, however, is where things get sticky. The first type is the hype label: a paragraph of shamelessly promotional copy that tells you how great the wine is and why you should buy it at once. Winemakers write about how their fam-ily harvests the grapes one by one ƒ how they weep with joy as they crush and blend the final product ƒ and how this delicious wine is a perfect accom-paniment to any type of cuisine and should be enjoyed every day and every night. Yadda, yadda. The help label, however, is much to be respected and sought after. Wine-makers who are smart enough to tell me whats in the bottle will get my money first, every time. At least let me know what the blend is, and if youre really good youll give me the per-centages of the zinfan-del, counoise, charbono, aglianico and whatever else you threw in there. That way, I might know what kind of flavors and aromas to expect. Maybe youll tell me if the wine was aged in oak, what kind, and for how long, so Ill get a lit-tle preview of what to look for as I swirl, sniff and slurp. Which brings me (somehow) to one of my favorite topics ƒ where wines are made. Of course, in the U.S., we have some major wine-growing regions, and some that are very much up and coming. In California, we tend to think first (of course) of Napa, Sonoma and maybe the Santa Barbara region. But the wineries in Paso Robles are well worth our attention. Paso Robles is about halfway between Santa Barbara and Monterey. If you drive up Highway 101, youll hit San Luis Obispo, and about 30 miles farther north, youre there. Youll be skirting Californias Central Valley, which is one of the most fertile farming areas in the world. Fortunately, however, Paso is not one of them. The poor soil, combined with the cool winds and mist that blow in off the Pacific, make the climate perfect for cultivating our favorite fruit. Back around 1790, Spanish missionaries planted the first vines, and the area has boomed since 1990. Among my best recommendations are ƒ Q Booker RLF 2012 „ A blend of Grenache and Syrah, this wine is a rich mouthful of lavender, blackberry and other floral aromas and flavors. Excellent balance with a silky, rounded mouthfeel. WW 94. About $50. Q Justin Savant „ The Justins have built a mini-empire in the Paso region, with a hotel, restaurant, tasting room, the whole thing. Their IsoscelesŽ is the flagship wine, and they have a couple of others named for various kinds of triangles, but this unconventional blend of syrah, cabernet, petite sirah, and grenache is a real revelation. Blueberry and strawberry flavors dominate, with a smooth, long finish. WW 94. About $38. Ask the Wine Whisperer „ If I want to improve my wine tasting skills, what should I do?„ Carl F., BuckinghamA. The first thing is (you guessed it) drink a lot of wine. By that I mean sample widely. There are thousands of grapes and thousands of wines. Try different types „ and different producers „ as much as you can. Then, chewŽ the wine in your mouth „ dont swallow right away. This brings the wine in contact with all the receptors on your tongue, and provides a fuller, more complete idea of the flavors. Last, taste with other people and compare your impressions. Just like we all see colors differently, we all have our individual sense of taste. Your friends might detect flavors you dont, and vice versa. As I said, sample widely. And send in your questions, observations, and com-ments. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is Creative Director of Greenfield Advertising Group, and his new book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer,Ž is now available through his website or on Amazon.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Volcano Chicken The Place: Wattana Thai, 7201 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 588-9383 or The Price: $15.95 The Details: If it looks like something erupted over the Volcano Chicken at Wattana Thai, its because it did. The dish was fairly swimming in Wattanas slightly spicy, slightly sweet chili sauce. As always, the chicken was perfectly cooked until tender. The sauce could have used a little more sweetness to counter all the cab-bage in the dish, which also was loaded with broccoli and carrots, but thats a minor complaint in what was otherwise a delightful meal, and one of the reasons why weve been regular customers since the place opened in 1988. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Theres a new source for gourmet chocolate in Jupiter, just in time for Mothers Day. But this one has a twist: The delectable goodies are made by people on the autism spectrum. The Chocolate Spectrum Boutique and Academy opened last May. Valerie Herskowitz who owns the company, is a pastry chef, a veteran speech patholo-gist and the mother of a severely autistic son, now an adult. The boutique offers artisan chocolates and the adjacent caf will serve gourmet chocolate-inspired pastries, beverages and coffees, made in part by adults with autism and special needs. Their tag-line is creating sweet opportunities for people with autism.Ž The academy is the teaching side of Ms. Herskowitzs prototype, and it will hold weekly chocolate-making classes for children and adults, including those with special needs. They also plan to offer private parties, team-building expe-riences and field trips, open to everyone. For adults with autism and other developmental disabilities, The Chocolate Spectrum Academy will offer a formal 12-month vocational training program in making chocolate and pastries, as well as barista and restaurant services classes for people on the spectrum who qualify. The Chocolate Spectrum is at 6725 W. Indiantown Road, Suite 38, in the Jupiter West Plaza. The caf was renamed Claytons Caf for the late Clayton Feig the son of Steve and the late Eva Feig Clayton died from epilepsy in 1993 at age 18.

FLORIDA WEEKLY2 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 4-10, 2016 Welcome to Florida Weekly’s Best special section The Best is Florida Weekly’s take on some of the best, of course, but also some of the wackiest, most wondrous, obscure, ridiculous and even scandal-ous people and things that make South Florida such a great place to live. Many “best of” publications are filled solely with content that’s bought and paid for; that’s not our style at Florida Weekly. Yes, our advertisers — the folks who make this piece of Floridian pulp and history you hold in your hands possible — receive shout-outs from us in these pages. It’s only fair. But the bulk of our Best section has nothing to do with invoices or ballot-box stuffing. The non-scientific, non-crowdsourced process by which we choose our Best winners begins with a brain-storming meeting of our writers and editors. A couple of months later, after scouring the nooks and crannies of the region and our Florida Weekly archives, this section emerges: page after page of things we praise and applaud, pontificate on and poke fun at. Herewith, our Best. We had fun doing it, and we hope you have fun reading it. Here’s to the Best of South Florida 2016.

But people statewide know her as the patron who called out Gov. Rick Scott during a visit to a Gaines-ville Starbucks. The video of her confronting the governor over job creation and calling him an a------,Ž went viral and prompted the governors political action committee to brew up an attack video calling Ms. Jennings a latte liberal.Ž No word on whether she considered him to be a Grande or a Venti a------,Ž but were betting the latter.BEST USE FOR A USED BOOKLake Worth’s Little Free LibrariesNo, thats not a birdhouse.

Book lovers stock them with used books; passers-by help themselves. The project was born in 2009 when a Wisconsin man built a small model schoolhouse.

But alas, in time so many burgers became gourmet burgers the word lost all its panache, and profitability. Now we have artisanalŽ „ created by an artisan „ and if you think thats not an overpriced hamburger „ well, youre no gourmet. After all, its got ArtŽ right in the word!BEST SALES PITCH SINCE SCRIPPS FLORIDAAll Aboard FloridaIts your choice: Gas up the car in Miami and drive 3 hours to Orlando on Floridas Turnpike, or pay $90 to get there a half-hour sooner on the high-speed rail system currently under construction. That $90 is for a one-way ticket, by the way, and the train wont drop you off at Disney World. Youll have to ride a com-muter rail from the airport. A study „ by All Aboard Florida, of course „ predicts that 5 million passen-gers a year will bring in more than $290 million by 2020, but were skeptical. Remember Scripps Florida, the research institute then-Gov. Jeb. Bush said in 2003 could create a bio-tech economy adding 40,000 new jobs? Were still waiting. BEST STAGE THAT GETS BETTER WITH AGEMaltz Jupiter TheatreThe former Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre at the end of Indiantown Road dates back to 1979. The same building opened its doors as the Maltz Jupiter The-atre in 2004. Two years ago, the venue underwent a $2.5 million expansion to create a VIP experience for patrons, and last year, it announced a $25 million expansion to double its size and make it a Broadway contender. GATOR TALEIf the chili doesnt kill you, the alligator might. In Febru-ary, Joshua James, 24, of Jupiter, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a dead-ly weapon after he drove up to a Wendys drive-through win-dow, ordered a large drink and, while the attendants back was turned, tossed a live, 3-foot alligator through the window.

WalkerWhether making fun of radio personalities Mo Foster and Sally Sevareid or often himself, the impromptu videos the silly but successful sidekick posts on Face-book are social-media sensations.

PAGE 50 FLORIDA WEEKLY10 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST IT’S ABOUT TIMETaking the crime out of shacking upThe Sunshine State has quite a reputation for being out of touch regarding social mores (medical mari-juana, anybody?), but the Legislature brought the law books into the 20th century on at least one front in March by decriminalizing cohabitation between men and women. The House of Representatives voted 112-5 (who were the five?) to repeal Floridas unenforced prohibition on cohabitation. The law had been on the books since 1868, when a couple could be fined $500 for living in sin and sentenced to 60 days in jail for engaging in open behavior that is gross lewdness and lascivious.Ž The entire statute was repealed in April when Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill. It was about time.BEST CAR SHOWWheels Across The PondIts really Best to remember that the car hobby is about camaraderie. The annual Wheels Across The Pond in Jupiter started out as a show for British cars. But the Easter weekend event had so many other brands driving through affair over the years that it has expanded to award categories that stretch across all of Europe. The reason why this show is so inclusive is because its often celebrating the features we all share in keep-ing these vintage vehicles on the road. Awards like Best Potential, Oldest Car and Spirit of Restoration remind us why folks love classic cars. They even cel-ebrate the European cars stigma with the surprisingly competitive Most Rust prize.BEST USE FOR A VACANT LOTThe Musical SwingsFrom Feb. 4 through March 6, that patchy plot of grass at 534 Clematis St. in West Palm Beach brought back the Swing Era. An interactive installation developed by a Montreal design agency, the Musical Swings were just that. Childrens swings that played the notes of a guitar, piano, vibraphone or harp when people swing. The higher you swing, the higher the note. Swing together and create music. It was free. It was the swings East Coast debut and children loved it „ when they could get their parents off long enough to ride. Good for you, West Palm Beach.TASTIEST HOLIDAY TRADITIONBriny Breezes Christmas Cookie ParadeShortly after moving to this little oceanside trailer park 15 years ago, Bev Williams, 83, started baking Christmas cookies for her elderly neighbors and shut-ins. And that good deed grew. Now she begins in September, and by Christmas week shes baked and frozen 2,300 cookies. Her helper elvesŽ bag them, and a week before the holiday Williams dons her Ms. SantaŽ suit and a small parade of golf carts travels from trailer to trailer distributing the sweets to her neighbors.

Olive Ave., West Palm Beach; 228-1688; PLACE TO GET YOUR IRISH DOWNO’Shea’s Irish PubThe Oxford English Dictionary traces the phrase get your Irish up,Ž meaning to become angry, to 1834. But for 21 years the Irish staff at OSheas have been unfailingly friendly, making this the most Irish Irish pub in town. They put on a free spread at Christmas, sponsor bingo and trivia games during the week, and host a giant block party every St. Patricks Day. No wonder their T-shirt boasts, OSheas Is The Reason I Got Up This Afternoon.Ž OSheas Irish Pub, 531 Clem-atis St., W. Palm Beach; 833-3865; BEST DOWNTOWN BURRITO BARGAINJimmychangasTheres nothing fancy about this hole-in-the-wall Mexican walk-up in the shadow of the Palm Beach County Governmental Center.

PAGE 52 FLORIDA WEEKLY12 THE BEST WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 BEST PLACE TO SAY GOODBYE TO CHAOSMorikami Museum and Japanese GardensTime to give peace a chance? Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is the place to do it. Take a hike in a beautiful, quiet spot. Explore the bamboo grove. Look at the rock formations. Listen to the cascading waterfalls. Rest on a on a bench and take in the wide panorama of water, Earth and sky, or enjoy a more intimate view of individual rocks and plants. Before you leave, check out the museum and have an Asian-inspired lunch on the terrace overlooking the gardens in the Cornell Caf. 4000 Morikami Park Road, Delray Beach; 495-0233; VIA ON WORTH AVENUEVia MiznerThere are eight cloistered courtyards on Worth Avenue. Our favorite is Via Mizner, with its winding, covered walkways, flowers and fountains, colorful tiled stairways and Pizza Alfresco, an outdoor res-taurant serving the islands Best pizza. The via has 19 buildings, 40 small shops, flats and includes Addison Mizners five-story apartment with a bridge that con-nects his living space to his offices. Mizners love of monkeys is evident throughout. In fact, Mizners pet monkey, Johnnie Brown, is buried in the courtyard. 337-339 Worth Ave. Palm Beach; 832-0032; TRUNK SHOWThe kapok tree behind Royal Poinciana Chapel in Palm BeachThe giant, old (planted between 1883 and 1890) kapok tree presiding over the backyard of the Royal Poinciana Chapel has roots that stretch for yards and yards, rolling up and down toward the Intracoastal Waterway. Lovers stop to snuggle up and rest between them and sometimes carve initials in the bark. Squir-rels, who dash across the roots, claim them as their personal playground. 60 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach.BEST AMPHIBIOUS TOURDiva Duck An odd-looking vehicle by any measure, Diva Duck meanders through the streets of downtown West Palm Beach and Palm Beach and cruises past the man-sions of the rich and famous as it splashes through the Intracoastal Waterway. Riders are encouraged to make quacking noises as they go. The 75-minute tour departs from CityPlace. If youre looking for a fun way to learn brush up on local history (with a big dose of silliness) Diva Duck fits the bill. 600 S. Rose-mary Ave., West Palm Beach; 844-4188; INDEPENDENT CINEMALiving Room Theaters At FAUFlorida Atlantic University: It isnt just for classes anymore.

Visitors will find easy-to navigate trails shaded by sea grapes, sabal palms and oaks. Signs identify plants and there are benches to give visitors a chance to relax and enjoy. Before it was planted in the mid-1990s, the 6.5-acre preserve was a town dump, but youd never know it now. 400 E. Ocean Ave, Lantana; 400 E.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 5-11, 2016 THE BEST 13 BEST BIKE TRAILLake Trail in Palm BeachThis historic path is wedged between two stunning views: the Lake Worth Lagoon to the west and man-sions of the rich and famous to the east. Lake Trail extends five miles north from the Flagler Bridge, but there is another stretch that runs from Wells Road along North County Road to the Palm Beach Country Club. As visitors pedal (or walk) the trail, they can see Palm Beach Founder Henry Flaglers first home (the 1886 Sea Gull Cottage) next to his Royal Poinciana Chapel and his Whitehall mansion, now a museum.

Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, 1301 Summit Blvd., W. Palm Beach, 547-9453.BEST FOOD NEWS ON THE BARRIER ISLANDPublix at ManalapanIts hard to imagine someone who lives in Manalapan, Ocean Ridge, Gulf Stream or anywhere else along the barrier island feels food-deprived. But there is a noticeable lack of supermarkets east of the Intracoast-al Waterway. All that should change in 2018, when Publix opens at Plaza del Mar in Manalapan. It will be the only supermarket east of the Intracoastal between Palm Beach and Pompano Beach. According to published reports, Kitson & Partners, which owns the 103,000-square-foot plaza, said it does not anticipate the store changing the look of the tony plaza, which sits across from the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.BEST PICTURE HANGERJason Fennell at Studio E After a chance meeting with Studio E owner Evan Griffith in 2004, Jason Fennell began working and training at Studio E gallery, which sells contempo-rary work by artists moving up in the art world. Mr. Griffith was looking for someone interested in hang-ing artŽ and Mr. Fennell became that guy. Last year, after working as operations manager and digital assets manager the art shop, Mr. Fennell became gallery director. But he still hangs art because he is so good at it and hes in demand. 4600 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 799-3333; MANMADE REEF WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF MARINE LIFEUnderwater Snorkeling Trail at Phil Foster ParkPalm Beach County used boat registration money to build the snorkeling trail in the waters of Phil Foster Park „ and divers and snorkelers are glad they did. Fish, seahorses, octopuses and an assortment of other ocean critters can be found during high tide dives. Three concrete shark sculptures sitting in 10 feet of water were added to the trail last year. Free parking and lifeguards are provided, but divers need to bring their own equipment. An underwater camera is a good idea, too. 900 E. Blue Heron Blvd., Riviera Beach; WAY TO GET YOUR SPINACHA Popeye Power SmoothieOlive Oyls Main Squeeze would love the Garden Bar at the Woolbright Farmers Market. And Popeye, indeed, would be strong to the finish as he drank his spinach at the juice bar.

The results arent always pretty. But Palm Beach Gardens hairstyl-ist Melissa Peverini has come to the rescue with her nifty invention „ the Fringe Snipper. Its an at-home bang-trimming kit for women, men, children and longhair dogs, too. Ms. Peverini, who works at Cosmo & Co.

PLACE TO OBSERVE FLAMINGOSPalm Beach Zoo and Conservation SocietyNothing says Florida quite like the flamingo, the bight pink wading bird with stilt-like legs and S-shaped necks. They like to munch on shrimp and snails and, thanks to their webbed feet, are able to run on water as they prepare for flight. Want to get close to a flock of the gorgeous wading birds? Visit the zoo. Besides flamingos, the zoo is home to more than 700 animals from Florida, South and Central America, Australia and Madagascar. 1301 Summit Blvd., West Palm Beach; 547-9453; 0SHBOJ[Ft%FDMVUUFSt4JNQMJGZ t-FTTJTUSVMZNPSF t-JWJOHXJUIPOMZUIFUIJOHTZPVMPWF XJMMSFEVDFDMVUUFS t/FBUMZPSHBOJ[JOHXJUIJUFNTLFQUJOTQFDJ D TQBDFTMFBETUPPSEFSBOEQFBDF Lucy Anthony Webster 1FSTPOBM0SHBOJ[F r 561.512.0883 XXXDMPTFUTUPDPOTJHONFOUTDPNMVDZBOUIPOZQC!HNBJMDPN 6 6

Each includes a fenced-in grassy and wood chip area with ample shade and complimentary doggie waste disposal bags. Fake fire hydrants are provided for pooches who need a familiar looking target. WAY TO CATCH A RIDESkyBike in West Palm BeachTheres no word yet on whether SkyBike has officially reduced gridlock in downtown West Palm Beach since the service debuted last year, but were seeing lots of the trademark blue rental bikes on the streets. Its simple: Users can check out and return bikes interchangeably from stations throughout downtown. Theres no need to return the bike to a rental agency.
