We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple … Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years leslie COMMENTARYTo do what must be doneMaybe you saw the drama unfold on the floor of the U.S. House of Represen-tatives. It was broadcast through social media. The cameras typically used by C-SPAN to record the action in the chamber were turned off. Unruly law-makers had broken House rules. Their offensive behavior was deemed far too unseemly to be given the benefit of a national audience. The lawmakers rebellion was a serious breach of conduct; it turned the protocol on its head that dictates how the House conducts its legislative business. The majority party rules and rules absolutely. The speaker of the House (appointed by the majority) decides the order of busi-ness and runs the show. There are no intertribal powwows to reach mu tual consent on the House agenda. It is not uncommon for there to be unhappiness on that point, but minor-ity dissenters typically follow the road they are given. They observe the rules and live to fight another day. This time, it did not happen that way. The Demo-cratic minority rebelled. The lawmakers protested with a sit-in. Though astonished by their behavior, the speaker remained unmoved. He refused to re-adjust the order of business or offer an olive branch. The House session was adjourned; the lights turned off; and the legislative chamber emptied. The ruling majority left the building. The doors closed behind them, leaving a small but determined group of Democratic lawmakers sitting-in on the House floor. The halls buzzed with the conversations of the Republicans as they exited the building. Let the offending scoun-drels stew in their own juices! They can air their grievances amongst them-selves! What an outlandish and juvenile outburst! And so undisciplined! Why, it is as if the Democrats think they are in the British Parliament, for Gods sake. It is a well-known fact the Brits shout their business to each other across the aisle. We, the Republican majority, dont do such things. The revolt by the Democratic minority had begun inauspiciously. The speak-er of the House, Paul Ryan, gaveled the House into order to get done with a procedural vote. The exact nature of that agenda item has since fallen into obscurity, soon eclipsed by the provo-cation it inspired. Perhaps it was yet another vote to kill the Affordable Care Act. Whatever it was, it had absolutely nothing to do with gun control or gun violence, despite the latest mass shoot-ing in Orlando. House Democrats were outraged. The speaker refused to bring legislation for-ward for a vote to close a gun loophole. A suspected terrorist on the govern-ments no-fly list can legally buy mili-tary weapons and high-volume magazines to inflict mass destruction. What is it that conservatives dont get about such an insanity? Speaker Ryan ignored those protesting the Houses failure to act. He spoke over them, motioning for approval of his legislative footnote, addressing comment and instruction to his fellow Republicans. He droned on officiously, blah, blah, blah, as if the protesting minority were unruly children, to be seen and not heard. The frustration of the House minority turned volatile. It was, after all, just days earlier that a mass murder took place in a gay nightclub in Orlando. There were 49 dead and 53 wounded. The lone wolf gunman who committed the heinous act bought his firearms legally two days prior to the killings. The murderer was known to the FBI as a likely terrorist suspect. A loophole in gun laws allowed him to escape notice and legally buy the weapons. Even as the House refused to act, the killers victims were still being buried. Those surviving were still in recovery, many with multiple gunshot wounds, their lives changed forever. The nation was reeling, shocked and horrified. A national call for Congressional action seemed unstoppable. There was cautious optimism the logjam of Con-gress refusal to do act would be broken. Then the NRA flexed its legislative mus-cle. The nations demand for common sense gun controls fell on deaf ears. The Republican majority was neither of the mind nor the will to bend. In the face of yet another bloody massacre, doing nothing was more than wrong. It was shameful. House Demo-crats flooded into the well of the House chamber shouting no bill, no breakŽ and shame, shame, shame.Ž It was an act of civil disobedience by lawmakers in the House of Representatives unprecedent-ed in American history. It violated legis-lative protocols going all the way back to powdered wigs and brass spittoons. One of the civil rights movements most distinguished warriors led the protest. Congressman John Lewis, rep-resenting the 5th Congressional Dis-trict of Georgia, knows about civil dis-obedience. He has the scars and the jail record to prove it. At age 76, he is no longer a shy person. He has, as Garrison Keillor might put it, the strength to do what must be done. Lewis and his supporters vow to return to the matter of common sense gun controls when the House recon-venes. I expect hell be demanding of us all, Which side are you on?Ž Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Its not everyday you turn 60, is it?You want to have a party. You want to chortle blithely in the face of mortality, flanked by your own kind. So even though theres a hollowness to your own cheer, a sort of Oh, s**tŽ echo that only you can hear, you make merry. My guests are a little different this year „ theyre dead. But that hasnt stopped them from tossing in their two cents. That old highways got my relatives/ but it cant get me/ Lord, and it cant get me,Ž Woody Guthrie sang „ so donchu let it get you, he seemed to suggest. Janis Joplin just smiled. You got to get it while you can,Ž she m utter ed. And Dylan Thomas „ he got mad.Rage, rage against the dying of the light,Ž he commanded. As it turns out, everybody understands. People smile at you and talk to you as if they werent looking at a cadaver. Theyve seen this happen before. They just dont think it will happen to them. Neither did you.But 60 is twice 30, after all, and 30 used to be the top of the hill. Or was that 40? I cant remember. None of it applied to me, though. I didnt turn 30 or 40, either one, until I turned 60. Now I can cross into old age. Its a way to live. You say to yourself, transitions are for milktoasts. Go fast until you cant do any-thing but go slow. Of course, you have to lie to yourself to do that. Because every morning when you lift your head from the pillow and swing your legs over the side of the bed, you move a little more slowly. Youre stiff. And as time goes on, you get even stiffer. But you arent a stiff. Yet. Why not? What makes you so damn lucky that those other people who are smarter, tougher, better and bolder than you done went out of this world, and you still in it? I mentioned this to a friend of mine, Laura, in the context of the short-lived men on my fathers side „ I said, I hope I make it to 80 cause Ive still got a young son.Ž She didnt miss a beat. She said, Look, Roger, 80s the new 60. Youll live until youre 100.Ž Which is the new 80, at least in her family where the women really do live until theyre 100. Well, I dont need to take it quite that far, thank you very much. Id settle for 99. Id settle for winning the Powerball lottery, too. When I was about 10, I told my grandmother how proud I was of her for being the first one in the family who was certain to live 100 years (she still had about 25 to go, but that was nothing but a hound dog, in my opinion). I had her in that box, the centenarian box, and that settled it as far as I was concerned. I dont want to live that long,Ž she said brightly. I wouldnt want to be 100.Ž Ive never entirely recovered from that response „ from the surprise of her (what should I call it) surrender? Exhaustion? Defeat? Resignation and acceptance? But now I understand.So let me go Old Testament on you for a moment „ let me shout out some doubt. Who the hell invented a system in which a perfectly serviceable body and a perfectly serviceable mind begin to deteriorate almost invisibly, and then very visibly, and then com-pletely? Who decided that flowers should wilt, anyway? It doesnt seem right. It doesnt even seem efficient. Neither does infant mortality or homicide or low-down, honky-tonk, mean-assed, Dixie-whistling ignorance, either. Go figure. But somebody should have a little talking-to with the dude who did it „ the dude who came up with this goddamned way of doing things. Which must be exactly what my dad was thinking when he offered what Ive come to think of as his penultimate words, about 24 hours before he died of stomach cancer. It was a Dylan Thomas moment, all right. I had to get him out of his home bed sud-denly, and take him to the hospital. He wasnt coming back, which I didnt know (not being 60 yet) but he probably did. So he got to his feet in pain, I put the green bathrobe over his shoulders, and he exploded. Son of a bitch,Ž he snapped, and punched the wall. Hed been a good fighter in his youth, a middleweight, and that wall in my mothers house has been dented for 14 years now. One thing Ive noticed and maybe you have, too: With all the wonderful stuff we have in our lives, its hard to think much about mortality, or even to recognize it until it hits you on the head. Air conditioning. Shopping malls. Nice cars. Supermarkets swollen with bounty. Movies and music at the touch of a finger. An electronic world of friendsŽ where everybody has birthdays but nobody ever dies. Jane Doe, Johnny B. Good and Jiminy Cricket all have birthdays this week. Want to send them a birthday present?Ž Face-book prompts. But it never offers the other side of that coin to its subscribers. Imagine how helpful that would be. Jack Jones and June Smith have death days this week. Want to send them flowers?Ž You know what Mike Royko said about the internet (and by extension Facebook), dont you? No reason you should, so let me tell you: Its been my policy to view the internet not as an information highway, but as an elec-tronic asylum filled with babbling loonies.Ž Did I mention? I joined Facebook recently. As soon as the specter of 60 approached, I became a babbling loony, too. I find it a lot of fun. There are lots of other babbling loonies. We have a good time together. For now. Q „ This column first ran on July 10, 2013, when Mr. Williams turned 60. He is now much, much older and wiser. GUEST OPINION Water crisis: Step up, Gov. Scott, and do what the voters want BY ROB MOHERPresident and CEOConservancy of Southwest Florida Recently a state of emergency was declared for Lee, Martin and St. Lucie counties from the filthy water and toxic algae spilling from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers and estuaries. The irony is that the state knowingly has made decision after disas-trous policy decisions that have contributed to this crisis. While denial, excuses and point-ing fingers at the feds abound, there is little from our governor as to how the state „ not the feds „ is the pri-mary entity responsible for pollution and water quality, as well as for buying land for water storage and treatment projects. There has been no mention of how Gov. Rick Scott has led the state Department of Environmental Protection to continu-ously downgrade water quality standards and protections „ including for nutri-ent pollution „ or has forced the South Florida Water Management District to do a 180-degree shift from its previous initiative to buy land in the Everglades Agricultural Area for the redirection and filtration of these polluted waters to their current staunch opposition of doing so. Even within the last two weeks, the conservancy, as well as other water advo-cates and concerned citizens from around the state, convened in West Palm Beach to urge the top brass from all the state and federal agencies to move forward in plan-ning for the added storage, treatment and conveyance needed in the EAA to help solve our water crisis. Unfortunately, that call to action has been met with a deafening silence. Plan-ning for this crucial EAA water storage project has been pushed off to begin in 2020, despite dire water conditions and land use projects pushing into that area that could eliminate the potential of using them to fix this situation forever. This is wholly unacceptable. While we continue to advocate for many other steps that will also be needed, the EAA is the essential missing piece of the puzzle to cleansing and returning the excess water back to the Everglades and Florida Bay, where it historically flowed and is desperately needed. Agriculture and flood protection will be maintained for the surrounding areas. The conversion of a portion of agricultur-al lands for this vital purpose would hard-ly spell disaster for the sugar industry, which will likely continue farming on the adjacent tens of thousands of acres it cur-rently uses for sugar production. Our rivers and estuaries are deteriorating, our tourism and real estate econo-mies are suffering and people are becom-ing scared to enjoy the waterways, that drew them to South Florida in the first place. We can no longer afford to have leaders only talk about solving this without taking the necessary actions needed to do so. Addressing septic systems is helpful, but the science is clear that additional EAA land south of the lake is needed. With the passage of Amendment 1, the opportunity and money to buy land and build water projects is there. What we need now is our governor and the state agencies he directs to step up, take responsibility and actually do what the voters want and count on them to do to address this situation and prevent it from reoccurring. To take action and message the governor, go to Q MOHER

The Honda was to award a record $3.212 million to local childrens chari-ties during Honda Classic Cares Week July 11-15, beating the previous mark of $2.55 million that was distributed in 2015. This 2016 giving includes an individual grant of $1 million to the Nick-laus Childrens Health Care Foundation. The money generated by Honda Classic Cares on behalf of the foundation is donated annually to Nicklaus Childrens Hospital to advance pediatric care in the Palm Beaches. This year, Nick-laus has designated that the money jumpstart a campaign to build a new dedicated pediatric emergency department at Jupiter Medical Cen-ter as part of its Nicklaus Childrens Hospital part-nership. It was another spectacular year,Ž said Ken-neth R. Kennerly, execu-tive director of the Honda Classic. Our continued success is a tribute to the immense commitment for the past 35 years from American Honda, our two founding partners, Tire Kingdom and United Technologies, other sponsors, volunteers and our great fan base that continues to support the tournament each and every year. We are fulfilling our vision that was born 10 years ago when we set out to make a significant impact in our com-munity. We have accomplished that by presenting one of the elite events on the PGA TOUR each year and by raising a substantial amount of money to help the many childrens charities in our area impact the lives of young people.Ž The record charitable distribution and the largest single grant in tourna-ment history are a continuation of the growth the event has crafted since mov-ing to PGA National Resort & Spa in 2007 under the direction of Childrens Healthcare Charity Inc. We were so proud to be a part of establishing the pediatric inpatient unit at Jupiter Medical Center earlier this year, and now were helping to ensure that families in our area who need pediatric emergency medical assistance can get the very best care, tailored to their needs,Ž Jack and Barbara Nicklaus said in a shared statement. The Honda Classic has been a source of pride and, in many ways, a gift to the communi-ties in and around Palm Beach County. Now, through their continued generos-ity, they are giving the gift of improved pediatric care to the families in these communities.Ž The Honda is awarding grants to 50 local charitable organizations, helping more than 30,000 children. Some of the initiatives evolving from that giving range from contributing to the state-of-the-art Els Center for Excel-lence for autistic children in Jupiter to after-school and summer programs for kids at Adopt A Family of the Palm Beaches to a restoration of the Village Program of Scouting with the Gulf-stream Council Boy Scouts. The Honda Classic sponsors summer camp for 35 kids at the YMCA of the Palm Beaches, an art education program for underserved youth at the Artist Showcase of the Palm Beaches, Cystic Fibrosis patient care at St. Marys Medical Cen-ter, caregivers for abused or neglected children at Grandmas Place Inc., a $10,000 golf scholarship at Palm Beach Atlantic University, food for kids at the Palm Beach County Food Bank and is making a major contribution to the creation of a 250-seat auditorium at the Leadership Academy of Urban Youth Impact. An additional 101 charities received proceeds from the American Honda Birdies for Children program, where fans donate for the chance to guess the number of birdies in the tournament. American Honda awards a new Honda Civic LE to the winner. Fifty-nine indi-viduals guessed the proper birdie total of 1246 in 2016 and the car was awarded by drawing at a reception for charity partners on July 11. The gift to Jupiter Medical Center is the lead donation for an eventual $5 mil-lion project. We continue to reimagine the way we deliver health and wellness to our community each and every day, and it is partners like Honda Classic Cares and the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation that make this pos-sible,Ž said John Couris, Jupiter Medical Centers president and chief executive officer, adding. This new endeavor to build a dedicated pediatric emergency department will give families their own waiting area as well as eight pediatric treatment rooms with a child-friendly environment to reduce anxiety for our smallest patients.Ž The 2017 Honda Classic will be played Feb. 20-26, with Adam Scott defending his title.

Its not the first place traveling pet own-ers think of, especially with temperatures soaring as high as 115 degrees Fahrenheit recently. Despite the heat, we packed up our three dogs last month and drove to the town of Chandler, lured by the joint BlogPaws conference and Cat Writers Association annual meeting, held at the Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass. I knew plenty of pets would be present, but I wasnt prepared for just how wel-coming to pets the resort would be. We have stayed in many hotels and motels west of the Mississippi, and this one may well be a favorite. Our ground-floor room opened up onto a patio overlooking desert landscap-ing, making it easy to take the dogs out to potty at any time without having to take them down long hallways to find an exit. A walking path winds through the resort, leading past the pool (one of the few areas where pets arent allowed) and toward two hiking options: a two-mile nature trail and a path that parallels the manmade river flowing through the grounds. Leashed animals are welcome in the lobby bar and outdoor dining areas as well as on rental boats. Fellow guests included other dogs, cats and even a ferret. Dexter, a 7-year-old cocker spaniel, accompanied owner and pet blogger Carol Bryant of Kingston, Pa. We loved that all the staff said hello to our dog, from the front desk to house-keeping,Ž she says. Many of the staff learned my dogs name and asked if he could have treats.Ž We dealt with the heat by getting up before sunrise (crazy, I know) and walk-ing the dogs on the trails before it got too hot. They loved the chance to explore, and even 16-year-old Gemma had no trouble keeping up in the cool mornings. Then wed have breakfast at the restau-rants outdoor seating area before retreat-ing to our air-conditioned room for the rest of the day. If youll be vacationing with your dog or other pets in areas with extreme heat, here are some tips to keep animals safe and make the most of the stay. € Keep him hydrated. Whether youre driving to your destination or going for a walk or hike, make fresh, cool water avail-able on a regular basis. Bring water from home that you can mix with local water so the change doesnt upset his stomach. € Protect his skin with sunscreen free of PABA and zinc oxide, which can be harmful to pets if ingested.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYthe next president of the United States. Yet, barring an unforeseen and unknow-able circumstance, either Mr. Trump or Ms. Clinton will indeed take the oath of office in January. Given the deep divisions that are tearing at the very fabric of our Republic, it is unlikely that the win-ning candidate will receive a majority of the popular vote, and that matters not in settling the issue. The votes of consequence are those cast in the Electoral College „ that quirky and confusing entity devised in haste by the men who wrote and ratified the Constitution in 1787. Most observers give a decided edge in the EC to Ms. Clinton. This is not a reflection of her strength as a can-didate and a campaigner. To a lesser degree it speaks to the weaknesses of Mr. Trump and to a larger degree it highlights the inherent EC advantage that benefits any Democratic candi-date for president. A caveat is required at this point: We are a long way from November. Polls and electoral projections at this stage simply are, as the clich goes, snapshots in time.Ž Ms. Clinton faces major hurdles „ namely problems growing out of the email brouhaha that arose from her tenure as secretary of state, her reputation as a calculating, rabidly ambitious, corner-cutting poli-tician and what can only be described as her inherent unlikability. Oh, and then theres Bill Clinton, whose repu-tation as the greatest political mind of his generation is rapidly eroding as he stumbles from controversy to contro-versy. Still, taking all of that into consideration, there is no denying that the current EC map trends strongly in Ms. Clintons favor. There are 17 states (and the District of Columbia) that have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in each of the six presidential elections between 1992 and 2012,Ž The Washington Post pointed out in its July 1 editions. Add them all up and you get 242 electoral votes. There are 13 states that have voted for the Republican presidential nominee in every one of those six elections; they total 102 elec-toral votes. Win the states that every Democrat since her husband has won plus Florida, and Hillary Clinton is the 45th president. Simple as that.Ž In that same article, The Post came up with three possible electoral maps. Two of these scenarios envisioned Ms. Clinton receiving 319 electoral votes and one had her at 347 „ all comfort-ably above the 270 needed to win. The projected totals from Mr. Trump were 191 in two instances and 219 in the third. Nate Silver, the statistical wunderkind who runs the wildly popular FiveThirtyEight blog, assessed the race and came up with these odds: Q Clinton wins popular vote. 82.3 percent. Q Trump wins popular vote. 17.6 percent. Q Clinton wins popular vote but loses EC. 3.9 percent. Q Trump wins popular vote but loses EC. 0.8 percent. Q EC tie with each candidate getting 269 votes. 0.4 percent. No matter who is making the prediction, the core of this or any other presidential campaign is performance in battleground states that are not safe-ly Republican or Democratic. It is in these states where the true campaign is waged, and this exposes a serious and fundamental flaw of the EC. Lets say you are a Democrat living in a solidly Republican state, such as Texas. The Democratic candidate is not going to make an effort there because there is zero chance of win-ning. Someone voting Democratic in Texas is making a symbolic gesture, for sure, but nothing more. Texas 38 EC votes are going to the Republican nominee. You can take that to the bank. Likewise, simply reverse the parties in a Democratic stronghold like Cali-fornia. The Golden States 55 EC votes are as good as delivered already to the Democratic nominee. A Republican vote cast there means nothing in the overall picture. Presidential candidates „ who like to perpetuate the myth that all votes matter, regardless of where they are cast „ usually are loath to admit that they will ignore huge swaths of the nation during their campaigns. Not so Donald Trump.We have to win, and I want to put my energy into the states where it could go either way,Ž he said in a speech in Billings, Mont. He added that about 15 states will occupy his attention during the general election campaign. One outgrowth of this narrowing of presidential elections is that voter par-ticipation goes up in the 10 or so con-tested states and drops in the others. This perversion of the popular-voting system drives EC detractors nuts. Essentially, our votes dont matter in a great major-ity of the states,Ž Doug McAdam, a professor of soci-ology at Stanford University and an astute observer of the EC, told Florida Weekly. States have no interest, as states, in the election of a president, only citizens do, and the vote of a citizen in Coeur d Alene should count equally with one in Detroit,Ž Jack Rak ove, professor of history and American studies at Stanford University, wrote in an op-ed column published in 2000. Mr. Rakove concluded his piece with an assessment that rings true 16 years later. We may not love the Electoral College, and the reasons for its adop-tion have no relevance today, but that doesnt mean we can ever get rid of it.ŽProcess is state-by-state affairThe EC was bequeathed to us by the constitutional framers, who were at odds over how the United States should go about electing its presi-dents. Some framers favored popular elections; others believed Congress should select the president. Thus, the EC emerged from the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia as a slapdash compromise that served its purpose but satisfied almost no one. On its face, the EC seems undemocratic and strikingly at odds with the fundamental American proposi-tion that everyones vote should count equally. James Madison (the Father of the ConstitutionŽ), who was present at the creation of the EC, later aban-doned the idea, as did other framers. Yet the EC seems here to stay, as Mr. Rakove noted „ frustrating reformers who insist it is time to mothball this constitutional anomaly, which has the potential every four years to neuter the national popular vote. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin, of all people, has used the EC as a propaganda device to be deployed against the U.S. In 2014, Mr. Putin said its existence proves there is no true democracyŽ in the U.S. Make what you will of Mr. Putins criticism, but consider this extraordi-nary fact about our electoral system: The EC is so out of whack that it is theoretically possible that a candidate could be an electoral winner with only 18 to 21 percent of the popular vote, according to an analysis conducted by Charles Wessell, a mathematician at Gettysburg College. (For those long separated from their high school civics class, heres a quick EC primer. Under the EC, each state gets electors that are equal to the total of its two U.S. senators and the number of its representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives. In almost all cases „ Nebraska and Maine excepted „ the presidential candidate who wins a states popular vote receives all of its electors. To be elected president, a candidate must secure a majority of the electoral votes. The total number of EC electors nationwide is 538, mean-ing that to prevail, a candidate needs at least 270 electoral votes. The EC makes certain that presidential elec-tions are not national contests that hinge on the outcome of the popular vote. Rather, the EC turns the process into a state-by-state affair. States that are not solidly Republican or Demo-cratic „ the so-called swing statesŽ or battleground statesŽ „ are key to an electoral victory. These toss-up states „ anywhere from six to 12, depending on the year and who is making the pre-diction „ are where candidates focus their campaigns. The remaining states, from a candidates narrow perspective, are superfluous. As we have seen in four previous presidential elections, a candidate can win the national popu-lar vote but still lose the election „ thanks to the EC.) Richard Posner, a U.S. Court of Appeals judge in Chicago, is one of the ECs most rea-soned defenders. In a 2012 essay, Judge Posner said the EC was preferable because, among other things, it reduced the influence of big states because no state has more than two senators. He argued that the results in the EC were less likely to be chal-lenged and that the electoral system precluded presidential run-off elec-tions. Further, he said that the EC rarely determines the winner. (Judge Posner did not respond to an interview request from Florida Weekly.)

The prospect of either Mr. Trump or Ms. Clinton taking office without a popular mandate is disturbing. In todays super-heated political climate, it is highly likely that the legitimacy of a president who loses the popular vote only to be elected by the EC would be questioned by the oppos-ing side. Even a popular-vote win „ especially one in which the winner receives a mere plurality „ might not confer authority in light of the extraor-dinarily ugly and personal tone of this years race. An electoral victory, how-ever, most assuredly would unleash the hounds of discord and disaffection. Further muddying the 2016 waters is Mr. Trumps persistent claim that the systemŽ is rigged against him, even in the Republican primaries. It is hard to imagine Mr. Trump fading quietly into the shadows (as did Al Gore) if he triumphed in the popular vote but lost in the EC. (Mr. Gore, you may recall, said, simply and without apparent bit-terness, It is time for me to goŽ after the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 sealed George W. Bushs EC victory.) One can anticipate a barrage of lawsuits, voter protests, bombastic rheto-ric and lord knows what else if Mr. Trump meets the same fate as Mr. Gore. Although it is doubtful that Mr. Trump „ who is justly renowned for his litigious nature „ would prevail in a court of law if he attacked the EC, a protracted contesting of elector-al results „ coupled with incendiary speech „ would constitute a crisis of governance. Given the stakes and the mood of the country, 2016 is as good a year as any to take a hard look at the EC. Why do we have it? Should we keep it? Will it take an electoral catastrophe (pos-sibly fraught with violent protests) to bring about a true national debate over the manner in which we elect our presidents? And, finally, does anyone „ outside of the concerned, informed few „ really care?Everyone complains, nothing happensThe EC has been tinkered with successfully just once since the Constitu-tion was ratified in 1787. Controversies arising from the presidential elections of 1796 and 1800 led to the ratification in 1804 of the 12th Amendment, which revised the procedures of the EC. The Electoral College has never worked the way it was supposed to work,Ž Alex Keyssar, professor of history and social policy at Harvard Universitys Kennedy School of Government, told Florida Weekly. It has never been a delib-erative body. It was out of date within a decade. Attempts to get rid of it ... start-ed 10 years after the Constitution was ratified.Ž Contrary to folk wisdom, the framers did not reject popular election because of a fear that the people might fall prey to a demagogue,Ž wrote Mr. Rak-ove, the Stanford historian, in a New York Times op-ed piece. They worried instead that in a provincial society, citizens would never be well enough informed to make an effective choice without multiple and expensive rounds of elections.Ž Additionally, Americas Original Sin „ slavery „ played an important and decisive role in the creation of the EC. The colleges primary purpose was not to give small states greater rep-resentation, as is often claimed by its defenders today,Ž according to Richard Hasen, an expert in election law at the University of California, Irvine School of Law. Instead, the Electoral College was created to reflect the political realities associated with accommodating the institution of slavery into our electoral system.Ž An electoral method that featured the popular vote would have reduced the influence of the slave-holding states in the South. To protect the Souths political power and influence, the framers came up with the infamous Three-Fifths Compromise, which held that slaves „ who could not vote, of course „ could still be counted as three-fifths of a person for electoral purposes. Under a direct election system, the Southern states would be at a signifi-cant disadvantage because their slaves could not vote,Ž Mr. Hasen explained in an essay on the EC. Through the Electoral College and the Three-Fifths Compromise, however, partially count-ing slaves when determining the num-ber of presidential electors allowed the Southern states to rival the electoral power of their Northern brethren.Ž Those who seek to reform or abolish the EC posit that it was created under circumstances radically different from those that exist today and therefore has virtually no relevance in our con-temporary society.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY“ To me, it’s deeply depressing that the country is incapable of having a serious discussion of what is obviously a flawed, and in some senses undemocratic, process.”— Jack Rakove, professor of history and American studies at Stanford University E E C C ELECTORAL COLLEGE of Americans (81 percent in one such poll) think it is a bad idea, although few people „ outside of constitutional scholars, historians, political scien-tists, a few quarrelsome politicians and legal experts „ ever raise much of a ruckus over its existence. The Ameri-can Bar Association called it archaicŽ and ambiguous.Ž Sanford Levinson, a law professor at the University of Texas, colorfully described the EC as a constitutional iron cage built for us by (the) framers.Ž Over the course of 200 or so years, there have been more than 700 pro-posals set forth in Congress to either reform the EC or eliminate it altogeth-er. Despite this legislative onslaught, the EC remains unbowed and unblood-ied. There have been more propos-als for constitutional amendments on changing the Electoral College than on any other subject,Ž according the National Archives and Records Admin-istration. These quixotic flurries of congressional activity do nothing to spark pop-ular interest in addressing this consti-tutional anachronism, and those who are deeply immersed in the subject see little hope of a widespread public awakening anytime soon. To me, its deeply depressing that the country is incapable of having a serious discussion of what is obviously a flawed, and in some senses undemo-cratic, process,Ž Mr. Rakove has noted. In contemporary America, the EC seemingly favors Democrats over Republicans thanks in large part to large, traditionally Democratic states that anchor both coasts. Paradoxically, Republicans rarely squawk (perhaps because they were the last to benefit from the EC in the 2000 presidential election), and Democrats are the ones who most often seek change. Winning in the Electoral College is usually an uphill battle for Repub-licans,Ž Mr. Rak ove, au thor of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Origi-nal Meanings: Politics and Ideas in the Making of the Constitution,Ž told Florida Weekly.The EC has played a role in usurping the popular vote in four presidential contests (1824, 1876, 1888 and 2000). The election of 1824 was a nightmare for Andrew Jackson, who won both a plurality of the popular vote and a plurality of the EC vote and still lost. Because Jackson did not receive a majority of the votes in the EC, the election was tossed to the U.S. House of Representatives, which elected John Quincy Adams. Benjamin Harrison in 1888 received about 90,000 fewer pop-ular votes than Grover Cleveland but won in the EC by a count of 233 to 168. In 2004, a swing of about 80,000 votes in Ohio would have handed John Kerry an electoral win (by a 272-266 margin) over President Bush „ despite Mr. Bush having won nearly 51 percent of the popular vote nationally. Because he carried Ohio, Mr. Bushs victorious EC total was 286; Mr. Kerrys tally was 252. Democrats alleged that widespread irregularitiesŽ in the 2004 Ohio vote resulted in a significant disenfran-chisement of voters.Ž Congressional Democrats attempted to block the counting of Ohios 20 electoral votes. That move was defeated 267-31 in the House of Representatives and 74-1 in the Senate. Mr. Kerry, for his part, wanted no part in disputing the results, instead stressing the need to move forward „ again, a significant departure from how Mr. Trump might react to a like circumstance. The election is behind us,Ž Mr. Kerry said. The American people now expect their leaders in Washington to focus on big priorities facing this country.Ž Mr. Keyssar, the Harvard professor, believes that had Mr. Kerry prevailed in 2004, it might have sparked inter-est in abolishing the EC. If (a Kerry victory) had happened, then (the EC) would have gone each way politically,Ž he said. If both political parties had suffered EC defeats „ within a space of four years, no less „ the EC might have been imperiled, Mr. Keyssar said. Democrats would have considered (a Kerry win) sweet revenge for 2000,Ž The Wall Street Journal pointed out a week after the 2004 election. But the rancor such a result would have engen-dered might not have worked out very well for Mr. Kerry, not to mention the nation.Ž The newspaper concluded that the 2004 election results handed both parties an issue they should be able to agree on: It is time to abolish the Electoral College.Ž Most Americans are aware that the EC exists, but few really understand it or have any comprehension of how it came into being. Along with the Fed-eral Reserve System, it might be, to the average American, the most mystifying and least comprehensible of our public institutions. Perhaps confusion was inevitable since this bedrock constitutional prin-ciple would very likely be deemed unconstitutional were it proposed today. If the Electoral College came up as legislation now, it would not conform with the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution,Ž Mr. Keyssar, author of the forthcoming book Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College?Ž told Florida Weekly.A theory on the apathyTallahassee Circuit Judge Terry Lewis has seen, up close and personal, the whirlwind the EC can spawn. He was assigned to hear cases growing out of the Florida presi-dential recount in November of 2000. During this dizzying period, a sober-ing thought entered the mind of Judge Lewis, an esteemed jurist and accom-plished novelist who specializes in Scott Turow-style legal thrillers. At some point, I realized that, damn, I may have to make a decision on who is going to be president of the United States,Ž Judge Lewis, who remains on the bench in Tallahassee, told Florida Weekly.That a judge in Tallahassee, Fla. could determine the next Leader of the Free World is pretty remarkable, when you give it some thought. Judge Lewis, who was accurately described in The New York Times as unflappable,Ž was not overwhelmed by this seemingly daunting prospect (I was used to high-publicity cases,Ž he said), but he was acutely aware that the cases he was hearing represented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play a decisive role in the shaping of American history. And that is enough to test limits of anyones unflappability. The fact that Judge Lewis was poised on the precipice of such a momentous decision was due solely to the fact that the EC „ not the popular vote „ deter-mines the occupant of the Oval Office. The 2000 contest drove this point home in dramatic fashion. Regardless of the results of the Florida recount, George W. Bush was not going to receive more direct, popular votes than Al Gore, who was, it could be argued, the true peoples choice, albeit by a razor-thin margin. (Mr. Gores edge in the popular vote amounted to about 500,000 votes out of 105 million cast.) In the end, the U.S. Supreme Court, not Judge Lewis, settled the issue. Bush v. Gore, a controversial and convoluted 5-4 decision „ which the court tell-ingly explained could not be cited in later cases as precedent „ stopped the Florida recount, and the states 25 elec-toral votes and the White House were handed to Mr. Bush. The hotly contested election brought the EC into the spotlight. In the immedi-ate wake of Mr. Bushs electoral victory, Democrats, principally, complained that the EC undermined the commonweal. But the grousing was short-lived. There was tremendous anger over the 2000 presidential results, but it didnt produce a groundswell of oppo-sition to the Electoral College,Ž Mr. McAdam, the Stanford sociologist, told Florida Weekly.Why didnt this anger translate into calls for elimination or reform of the EC? It happens so rarely, people dont get upset about it,Ž Judge Lewis speculated. And, to be truthful, a lot of people dont understand (the EC). Most of the time it works pretty well. Theres always going to be a margin of error (in presidential elections) if you use the Electoral Col-lege or the popular vote. So, whos to say one is better than the other?Ž I dont honestly know (why there isnt more popular opposition to the EC),Ž confessed Mr. McAdam „ who is the author of the book Deeply Divid-ed,Ž which explores and explains the unprecedented polarization that roils present-day America. Perhaps the feel-ing is that, oh, well, weve always done it this way.Ž Mr. McAdam is doubtlessly correct when he references apathy as one of the ECs greatest allies. But there may be a companion theory „ unprovable but anecdotally compelling.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 NEWS A11have been excessively deified in the last couple of decades or so by a group one might identify as constitutional cultists.Ž This group believes the Constitu-tions conception was immaculate and that not a word or sentence is open to interpretation. They are easy to spot but hard to shake. They tote pocket-size copies of the Constitution, which they whip out at the drop of a hat and wave in the face of anyone who dares to question anything that they believe contradicts a single word of the sacred document. Thus, if the framers set up an electoral system, thats the way it is and the way it should be. Case closed. Interestingly, these cultists scorn compromise on all things constitution-al (Exhibit A: the Second Amendment). This intransigence wholly ignores that the Constitution came about solely through a host of compromises bro-kered by the framers in a highly politi-cized environment. To these cultists, the framers were supermen, who rose above the grime and muck of political horse-trading and whose wisdom and commitment were beyond question and reproach. These were men of incredible talent, certainly, but many Founding Fathers were absent from Philadelphia in the summer of 1787, including Thomas Jef-ferson (who was occupied as minister to France) and John Adams (minister to Great Britain). Samuel Adams and John Hancock took a pass, as did Patrick Henry, who steered clear, explaining that he smelt a rat in Philadelphia, tending toward the monarchy.Ž Some framers showed up for work only when they felt like it. The most notable exception to this laid-back approach was the indefatigable James Madison, whose meticulous notes are the best record of what transpired at the convention. Only about 30 per-cent of the delegates bothered to hang around for the full four months. Whining about the Penn sylv ania heat and working conditions was rampant. Some frustrated delegates walked out in protest. Three delegates „ Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts and Virginias Edmund Randolph and George Mason „ showed their displeasure with the final product by refusing to sign. So despite the hagiographic construct put forth by constitutional cult-ists, the undeniable truth is that the Constitution was created by mortals/politicians who wheeled, dealed, plead-ed, cajoled and twisted arms. Mortals make mistakes, and, with benefit of hindsight, the EC „ stewed in a broth fouled by racism and slavery „ seems to be one the framers made. How grievous an error the framers made when they concocted the EC was vividly on display in the presidential election of 1876. Republican Rutherford B. Hayes received nearly 250,000 fewer votes than Democrat Samuel Tilden. But Hayes eventually „ after some of the most shamelessly cynical politically maneuvering in the history of the Unit-ed States, prevailed in the EC by a one-vote margin „ 185 to 184. Hayes victory, however, came at a great cost to the country „ and most especially to the freed slaves in the South. Tilden needed 185 electoral votes to win. He had 184 after the popular vote had been counted. Four states that had a total of 20 electoral votes (Florida, Louisiana, Oregon and South Carolina) challenged the results and withheld their electoral ballots. That left the election with no winner and electoral votes hanging in the air and attached to no one „ a circum-stance no one had contemplated. Unsure what to do, the two political parties set up a 15-member Electoral Commission (seven Democrats, seven Republicans and an independent) to wade through the mess. There were complaints that the commission itself was unconstitutional but the ensuing confusion overwhelmed these objec-tions. The situation was further complicated when the sole independent, U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Davis, bolted the commission after he was elected to the U.S. Senate by the Illi-nois Legislature. His replacement on the commission was a partisan Hayes supporter whose presence meant that the Republicans controlled eight of the 15 spots on the commission. Democrats cried foul and said they would block the appointment, thus perpetuating the stalemate. Violence growing out of election seemed a real possibility. Blood for Tilden!Ž was a favored rallying cry among some Dem-ocrats. Desperate to resolve the impasse and control the White House, Repub-licans cut a deal with Democrats. They agreed to the removal of federal troops stationed in the South as part of Recon-struction. In return, Democrats stood down and allowed Hayes to receive the 20 disputed electoral votes he needed to become president. That deal, brought about directly by the presence of the EC, proved disas-trous for African Americans in the South. It effectively ended Reconstruc-tion and allowed the South to estab-lish a system officially sanctioning racial discrimination that endured for generations. No one is predicting an 1876-style imbroglio, but no one is quite sure what to expect this year. One thing does seem certain though „ the likelihood of a landslide `a la Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Richard Nixon in 1972 or Ronald Reagan in 1984 „ is very slim. It is inconceivable that anyone could fashion a victory even remotely resem-bling Mr. Reagans performance in 1984, when he won 59 percent of the popular vote, carried 49 states and racked up a record 525 electoral votes. (No president since George H.W. Bush in 1988 has been able to amass 400 electoral votes.) Election o utcomes have narrowed since (1984),Ž The New York Times observed last month. Information Age realignment hardened party lines, making Republi-cans and Democrats more ideologically distinct and reducing the abil-ity of nominees to lure crossover votes.Ž Whoever wins in Novem-ber will be at the helm of a country that is suspicious of those in power and sharply split along ideological and party lines. If the new president wins the EC but loses the popular vote, these feelings of skepti-cism and cynicism will only deepen. And that is truly frightening.

Hyundai has found enough success with it that the com-pany is launching Genesis as its own brand this summer. Now the companys little cousin Kia wants to step up its game, too.The K900 sedan is the result of planting an ambitious flag. Every mainstream car company wants lifetime business, and this is about making sure customers dont outgrow the lineup. So Kia is hoping that the same teenager who bought a value-priced Soul as a first car, will then return for an Optima when he/she lands a real job out of college, and then keep their fingers crossed that the K900 occupies the same ring as the executive washroom key. The design does a good job of moving the company upmarket. Kias signature tiger-like nose is now joined by sleek lines and accent touches that look bor-rowed from Aston Martin and Maserati. Inside, theres plenty of all the right luxury touches with standard leather interior, power front seats with heat and cooling, touchscreen infotainment system, front/rear monitors, panoramic sunroof and plenty of other amenities for a price starting around $50,000. But to make this car optimal requires an upgrade to the Luxury trim level and then adding the VIP package. This adds plenty of items like a headup display and 360-degree camera view, but this is really about taking full advan-tage of the enormous back seat created by the 120-inch wheelbase. With the VIP package, the rear seats are now heated and cooled just like the front ones, and they are also electroni-cally adjustable. These kinds of features arent even available in most limousines, but it also doesnt come cheap in this limo-like sedan. Upgrading to Luxury trim, which is necessary before adding the VIP, will add nearly $11K to the total price. The K900 still remains a bargain, and it really helps distinguish it as a worthwhile purchase. This sedan will find its largest appeal with those who need to make the right first impression. For example, a midlevel executive who drives the higher-upsŽ will love to hear them marvel about all the a/c rear seats before informing his bosses that he shrewdly spent half as much as they guessed. Or a salesperson who parks this extra-long sedan next to her competitions significantly smaller (but similarly priced) Mercedes E-Class will certainly feel her ego swell. These are far from everyday needs for most of us, and they mostly center on vanity. Thats where the K900 finds its limitations. On the road it is as quiet as a good luxury machine should be, and so none of the passengers question the sedans worth. But for the driver, all the effort that went into isolating the car makes it feel a bit numb. The steering and suspension are both light and uninspired. The base 311 horse-power 3.8-liter V6 is shared with the spirited Hyundai Genesis (soon to be Genesis G80), but the larger K900 is car-rying over 200 pounds more. Therefore, it is just as refined as the Hyundai, but the extra girth is certainly felt during acceleration.The overall experience behind the wheel isnt bad, but the K900 will inevita-bly be compared to the benchmark execu-tive express machines from BMW, Lexus, Jaguar and others. All of those established sedans have invested far more time and funds to keep the driver happy. Still, not every executive has a weekend cabin at the end of a winding moun-tain road, which means not everyone cares about the driving experience. The true irony might be that choosing the Kia over a recognized luxury brand saves enough cash to put a deposit on that vacation home. Being thrifty is not exclusive to the rich or poor, and the K900 is providing top-level luxury at one of the lowest costs ever. That makes this first attempt a solid effort with genuine appeal. Once Kia starts remembering the driver, it might be time to take the K900 seriously. Q BEHIND THE WHEELAre you ready for a $50K Kia? Is it ready for you? myles

Foreword by Clyde Butcher. University Press of Florida. 216 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95.Because Robert Silk is both knowl-edgeable and pas-sionate about his subject, there was a good chance his book would be a success. Add the long years of expe-rience Mr. Silk has had sharpening his craft as a writer, and the result is something like a minor masterpiece. Though written for the breed of tourist recently defined as eco-aware or eco-sensitive, Mr. Silks well-planned and fact-filled guide can be a source of knowledge, entertainment and inspira-tion to anyone interested in the wide-open spaces of South Florida and South-west Florida. He gives these coastal sec-tions of the peninsula and the inlands that connect them the encompassing name southern Florida.Ž As Mr. Silk helps us imaginatively discover the vast protected areas avail-able for our relaxed exploration, he provides the context of water manage-ment and mismanagement that has led to the various restoration projects that are renewing the health of these col-laborative ecosystems: the swamplands and forests of the Everglades, and the string of islands collectively known as the Florida Keys. These distinct systems depend on and complete one another while maintaining experiential unique-ness for the visitor. The author selects for us the optimum times of the year for our ecotourist adventures, while letting us know that any time will do if its all that we have: Just be ready for the extreme heat, the regular downpours, and the ferocious mosqui-toes if you explore during the summer months. He prepares for us the strong points of each public site, covering national and state parks, preserves and animal refuges, whether large, small or almost secret. He also attends to the pri-vate businesses that live off and accessorize these pub-lic natural wonders: res-taurants, camps, bike rent-als and rentals of small, arm-powered watercraft. He offers his favorites and shares which ones others favor, always providing contact information. Salivate if you must over Mr. Silks descrip-tions of such places as Big Cypress National Preserve, Ivy House Bed and Breakfast, Fort Zach-ary Taylor Historic State Park, Lara Quinn Wild Bird Sanctuary, Collier Seminole State Park, Marathon Turtle Hospital, the Mel Fish-er Maritime Heritage Museum, Redland Fruit and Spice Park and (take a deep breath) Dagny Johnson Key Largo Ham-mock Botanical State Park. Find out where to observe the alligators and crocodiles, the roseate spoon-bills, Key deer, great white herons, panthers, manatees and the hundreds and hundreds of species (many unique to this environment) that make these expanses home. Do you just like scenery? Mr. Silk has expert suggestions. By airboat? More suggestions. By canoe? More sugges-tions. On foot through mucky waters? His advice is sound. And dont forget to stop and smell the orchids. Mr. Silk gives special emphasis to certain topics by presenting his words against a gray background. This treat-ment highlights sections on Invasive Species, Birding Southern Florida, Cypress Domes, Key West Cemetery and Homesteads Mexican Restaurants, among other items of interest. An Ecotourists Guide ƒ Ž is made even more reader friendly by the abun-dance of illustrations it contains, many of them photographs by the author. And for readers who need to go back to check on some information in the book, he provides an efficient index. The style and substance of this fine book, more one side of a friendly con-versation than academic tome, makes it a valuable item for any resident of southern Florida, and a splendid gift item as well.

The apparatus will likely remain in place until sometime in December. The serenity of Quantum House has become her familys sanity. Its nice,Ž said Bralynne Meyers, whose family hails from St. Petersburg, as she watched her 3-year-old run back and forth in the airy dining room. I dont feel pressured to have everything a certain way. Everyone is used to see-ing kids around.Ž Situated on the campus of St. Marys Medical Center in West Palm Beach, the 30,000-square-foot Quantum House offers an oasis to families with children undergoing long-term or emergency medical treatment in Palm Beach Coun-ty. It offers guest suites, a place to do laundry, two kitchens, a business center and playrooms. Families from as far away as Australia, Russia and California stay at the one-story home away from home, many for weeks at a time. The average length of stay is currently at 21 days, although there is no maximum time allotted. Quantum House in an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization that owns its building and leases the land for $1 a year from St. Marys Medical Center. The house was built with a one-time $1.25 million gift from the Quantum Foundation, opening in May 2001. A recent $5 million expansion added 20 guest suites, so Quantum House now has 30 private living suites available to families with sick children. Families are referred to Quantum House by their doctors or they can apply online. We are at about 90 percent capacity most of the time,Ž said Quantum House spokeswoman Elizabeth Portmess. We are helping about 300 families a year and turning away just as many.Ž Without Quantum House, the Meyers family would have had to rent a hotel room somewhere because Kather-ine has daily physical therapy through August in West Palm Beach while her leg bone stretches. Quantum House has an agreement with nearby suite hotels for a dis-counted rate to handle overflow, and St. Marys provides a shuttle service to the hospital for those staying at the hotels. Those families are invited to Quantum House to participate in any activities, eat or do laundry. Meyers said their Quantum House stay has been a blessing because they have encountered so many other young patients who also are undergoing the same type of treatment as Katherine. Initially when she had to sit in her wheelchair she cried because she thought other kids wouldnt like her,Ž Bralynne Meyers said. But she met a lot of other kids in wheelchairs and within 48 hours of being in the wheelchair she was wheeling herself around and watch-ing other kids get in and out of places.Ž It literally is a home away from home.Quantum House is designed just like a house to be home. When the fami-lies walk in they feel at home and its inviting,Ž said Laura Belcher, Quantum Houses manager of community invest-ments. There is a very unique commu-nity here of people who really under-stand each other and families dont have that opportunity anywhere else to connect with families that understand on a very raw level what they are going through because they have been there.Ž Guests are asked to contribute a $35a-day donation and clean their own rooms. Quantum House in turn provides state-of-the-art laundry facilities, organized activities for kids, a sprawling community kitchen with cupboards and refrigerator/freezer space for food, and donated meals at least once a day. Finding somewhere affordable to stay when your child is undergoing long-term or unexpected medical treat-ment is a critical issue for families who are faced with the scenario. Although local hotels are available, the cost and more formal atmosphere of such hous-ing is less desirable, said Port St. Lucie resident Holly Brown, whose daugh-ter Emery May was born at 29 weeks, weighing 2 pounds, 5 ounces. We applied to stay at the Quantum House and that was a lifesaver,Ž said Ms. Brown, whose daughter was born at St. Marys. (Emery) was still critical and was still a level 3 (of care) and I couldnt drive for two weeks and my husband had already taken a week off work when all this happened. (I thought) how am I gonna do this?Ž Quantum House became Ms. Browns anchor. It is like a very fancy dorm room/ hotel. You have a beautiful room. The whole place is gorgeous, clean, bright, happy, calming,Ž Brown said. It helps because you are going through a stress-ful time.Ž Ms. Brown could walk back and forth between St. Marys neonatal intensive care unit and Quantum House, which made it exceptionally convenient. Community response for the house has been enormous, from donations to volunteers who cook for families nightly, to those who create fundrais-ing events to benefit the house. On a recent weekday, The Breakers of Palm Beach was providing lunch for all the residents. Some volunteer groups provide themed meals, decorate and even stay to eat with the families, Ms. Portmess said. You have to eat, take a break and get a shower. Then you can get back up there and be a better caretaker for your child,Ž Ms. Portmess said. We house families to ease their burden but we work with community partners from other non-profits (to provide other ser-vices). If you have a preemie, the March of Dimes is going to help you get a car seat.Ž Bralynne Meyers said Quantum House has helped bring her own family peace in tough times. Its really a good sense of community. Weve only been here since May 31st and there have already been two birth-day parties!Ž she said. I have a com-munity of people I can talk to. There are children and parents who have been through it.Ž Q QUANTUMFrom page 1 SALLIE JAMES / FLORIDA WEEKLY Katherine Meyers stayed at Quantum House with mom Bralynne, sister Klaire and brother Kullen.

Monitoring your health with regular screenings, such as the free monthly heart attack risk screenings offered at Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center, can lead to early detection and lower your risk of heart disease. By modifying some of your daily habits, you can enjoy a healthier life for years to come. Q Eat healthy. Aim to incorporate a variety of grains, fruits and vegetables into your diet, and choose foods that are low in saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, added sugar and salt. Sub-stitute „ instead of resisting your snack craving, grab some animal crackers or fat-free yogurt. Explore other ways of preparing food, such as broiling, baking, roasting or poaching instead of frying. Your heart will thank you for it! Q Exercise regularly. Youll be well on your way to protecting your heart by clocking in as little as 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days of the week. There are plenty of ways to stay active without a gym membership, including taking a brisk walk, bike riding, hiking, danc-ing, swimming and completing physical tasks around the house. You can also squeeze in more activity by taking the stairs when possible or parking farther away from your workplace and walking the added distance. Q Dont smoke. Compared to nonsmokers, smokers are at an increased risk of heart disease because of the buildup of plaque in their coronary arteries over time. Kicking the habit sooner rather than later could reap great benefits for your heart „ just one year of not smoking may cut heart disease risk in half. Health screenings can lead to early detection of heart disease and other conditions. Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center offers free heart attack risk assessments for the community on the second Wednesday of every month. Screenings include glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and BMI. To register for the hospitals next heart attack risk assessment, please visit or call 625-5070. For accurate results, fasting is required.

The hospital also recently was awarded the American Heart Association/Ameri-can Stroke Associations Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll-Elite Plus. Q HCA East Florida to spend $650 million to expand SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHCA East Florida, a division of Hospital Corp. of America, said it is embark-ing on a major capital investment initia-tive that will invest approximately $650 million in health care facilities in Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Broward and St. Lucie counties. This initiative includes building new hospitals and expanding and improving existing health care facil-ities within the East Florida market over the next three years. In Palm Beach County, the 472-bed JFK Medical Center in Atlantis will receive $108 million to add a three-story bed tower, expand the emergency room, complete patient unit renovations and expand and upgrade its parking facilities. HCA East Florida operates 14 affiliated hospitals, in addition to multiple ambulatory surgery centers and imaging centers, physician practices, four free-standing emergency care facilities, a supply chain center and an integrated regional labo-ratory in an area that reaches from the Treasure Coast to Miami-Dade County. HCA East Florida employs more than 16,500 individuals and has more than 6,000 physicians on staff. The 14 HCA East Florida hospitals are JFK Medical Center, JFK North Campus, (formerly West Palm Hospital), Palms West Hospital, Northwest Medical Cen-ter, Plantation General Hospital, Univer-sity Hospital & Medical Center, Westside Regional Medical Center, Aventura Hos-pital & Medical Center, Kendall Regional Medical Center, Mercy Hospital, Sister Emmanuel Hospital, Lawnwood Region-al Medical Center, Raulerson Hospital and St. Lucie Medical Center. Q jeff WELCHCEO, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Scripps Florida scientists make new link to bipolar disorder SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhile bipolar disorder is one of the most-studied neurological disorders „the Greeks noticed symptoms of the disease as early as the first century „ its possible that scientists have overlooked an impor-tant part of the brain for its source. Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute Florida campus in Jupiter have shown that ensembles of genes within the striatum „ a part of the brain that coordinates many primary aspects of our behavior, such as motor and action plan-ning, motivation and reward perception „ could be involved in the disorder. Most modern studies of bipolar disorder have concentrated on the brains cor-tex, associated with higher-level thought and action. This is the first real study of gene expression in the striatum for bipolar disorder,Ž said Ron Davis, chair of the department of neuroscience at TSRI, who directed the study. We now have a snap-shot of the genes and proteins expressed in that region.Ž The study, published recently online ahead of print in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, also points to several pathways as potential targets for treatment. Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that affects about 2.6 percent of the U.S. adult population „ some 5.7 million Americans „ with a sizable majority of these cases classified as severe. The disease runs in families, and more than two-thirds of people with bipolar dis-order have at least one close relative with the illness or with unipolar major depres-sion, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 | A18 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Resale is big business. Nationally, antiques and thrift stores generate $16 billion in revenue each year. Goodwill Industries alone brings in $5.1 billion in retail sales from more than 2,900 stores and online sales across the country. So its no surprise that local not-forprofits hope to tap into that market. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League sold its building and closed its thrift store on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach last December. But people in Central Palm Beach County still have couture clothing, fur-niture and other items theyd like to donate to a charity that helps animals. Thats where the Peggy Adams stores former manager, Janice Lowder, comes in. Ms. Lowder has helped open a store for Noahs Ark Helping Pets Inc., which will raise money for area shelters and rescues to care for abandoned and sur-rendered pets. During a recent visit, former volunteers from the Peggy Adams store were sorting high-end shoes and handbags. Ms. Lowder had just returned from picking up an iron dining set. Outside, 1960s cast aluminum patio chairs sat near the entry of this store in a commercial district that has seen better days, but is looking ahead, as Rolando Chang Barreros The Box Gallery opened in June and Take Heed Theater Co. readies to open nearby later this year. The store, which opened at the beginning of the month, was packed with merchandise and hope for helping oth-ers. The same could be said for other charity stores. Hospice of Palm Beach County had a shop for many years a few blocks east of Ms. Lowders store, before moving to a strip plaza on Military Trail. Now, the Hospice Resale Shop has moved yet again, this time to more vis-ible digs on Okeechobee Boulevard just west of Military. The hospice shop also offers a range of clothing, household items, furnish-ings and decorative accessories and antiques. St. Vincent de Paul opened a large store this spring in Jupiter. Now, the charity has opened a new store in Greenacres. That shop, just north of Lake Worth Road on Military Trail, offers clothing, furniture, kitchen items, baby clothes, artwork, jewelry, shoes, antiques, strollers and wheelchairs. Here are the three new stores:Q Noahs Ark Helping Pets Inc. „ 824 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach. Open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 833-8131.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 BUSINESS A19 MOVING ON UPHis position at the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy at the Melvin J. & Claire Levine Center for Jewish Learn-ing is new, but Charles Cohens familiar-ity with the school certainly isnt. Mr. Cohen began as executive director of the academy this month. But his two children already are students there. Its a welcoming and warm place,Ž said Mr. Cohen, 39. They (his kids) are still at the age where they are happy to be seeing me every day at school. Its an honor to join this wonderful school where students graduate as confident, compassionate leaders able to engage and succeed in the world by using a sound base of Jewish values,Ž Mr. Cohen said. As a parent, I know first-hand that Meyer Academy pro-vides an unparalleled academic experi-ence.Ž Mr. Cohen, who will work with Principal Dr. Leslie Dangerfield, is charged with business operations including recruitment, marketing communica-tions, fundraising, finance, safety and facilities. Dr. Dangerfield works directly with faculty and families to enhance the schools academic program. Before coming to work at the academy, Mr. Cohen spent two years as exec-utive director of a local sister agency, The Lorraine and Jack Friedman Com-mission for Jewish Education, which has been at the forefront of Jewish education in the greater Palm Beaches for 25 years. Considered a national expert on Jewish day school tuition and financial aid, Mr. Cohen ran the Day School Affordability Knowledge Center at the Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE). Mr. Cohen said his first career was as a lawyer. What kind of lawyer?An unhappy one,Ž he said. I loved law school, but when I was a lawyer I looked for something more fulfilling.Ž He found it in the nonprofit world. He said that as executive director of the Jewish Academy he is responsible for the 160 to 170 children and their families and giving them the building blocks for passionate learning.Ž It is not a responsibility he takes lightly. I welcome it, but its not something I can set aside at the end of the day. This is such a tremendous school ƒ my job is to make sure everybody knows about us and we can continue to grow.Ž Where I grew up: Milwaukee, Wis. Where I live now: Boynton Beach. Education: B.S. in finance from Yeshiva University, and J.D. at Boston University. What brought me to Florida: I was hired to be the executive director of the Lorraine & Jack N. Friedman Commis-sion for Jewish Education of the Palm Beaches. My first job and what it taught me: In middle school I was a babysitter for other families in our neighborhood. I learned that I loved working with kids and that they will test you. But, if you give them ice cream, they will love you forever. A career highlight: Presenting my research on Jewish day school afford-ability at the international Jewish Funders Network conference in 2013. What you do when Im not working: Basketball, Ultimate Frisbee, improv. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: A wise friend of mine once wrote, Dont be afraid to email.Ž There is an entire international field of brilliant, dedicated professionals who are more than happy to share their wisdom with you, and introduce you to their colleagues. If you are generous and mindful about building your net-work, you will find the right job, in the right organization. About mentors: I am grateful to so many people for having guided me to where I am today. My boss at the Jewish Federation in greater Pittsburgh, Joshua Donner, is the model of a modern communal pro-fessional. He taught me everything I know about working with board members, and thinking strategically. But the most useful advice he ever gave me „ that I use every day „ is this: When you go into someones office to ask for infor-mation, or a favor, or even just to snag some candy, start by saying, Hi! How are you doing? How is your day going?Ž Then you can get down to business. Q Name: Charles Cohen Title: Executive director of the Arthur I.

Meyer Jewish AcademyBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” COURTESY PHOTOAfter pursuing a law degree, Charles Cohen found he was happiest working in the non-profit world. MONEY & INVESTINGWill U.S. bonds, gold and utilities stocks remain strong?While religion and Wall Street rarely are paired together in the same thought, I think investing in 2016 can be best summed up in a single Bible verse „ Matthew 5:5 states Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.Ž That basically describes the past six months. During this period, the S&P500 has gained an anemic 3.1 percent. And all of those strong, sexy sectors like biotech, tech and financial services, they are down for the year. But if you look at the returns of the three most boring, passive and non-exciting investments, the results may blow your mind. Long-term U.S. Treasury bonds have returned over 15 percent this year. Gold prices are up over 25 percent. And util-ity stocks are up over 20 percent. So why are companies like American Electric Power outperforming compa-nies like Apple, and should we count on this outperformance to continue in the future? Here in the U.S., we have been very much sheltered from the financial tur-moil affecting the rest of the world. First, the crash in oil prices devastated countries that rely on energy exports like Russia, Middle Eastern countries, and even countries like Norway and Mexico. Next, the Chinese economy slowed dramatically, which first hurt countries that sell it raw materials, like Australia. Then competing nations like Japan were affected as the government depreciated the Yuan in order to stimu-late exports. And most recently, Brexit has shocked the financial world by adding tremen-dous uncertainty to the future of the EU. Will all of Europe go into recession as a result? Will this be the straw that broke the proverbial camels back and cause a global recession? With these questions left unanswered, it cannot be a surprise that safe havenŽ assets like gold, U.S. bonds, and utilities are in demand. But if the world is so scary, why is the U.S. stock market overall still positive for the year? First, the U.S. economy continues to perform well. Low energy, labor and interest expenses all have helped U.S. corporations to increase their profits despite low revenue growth. And secondly, a strong domestic economy paired with a strong dollar has boost-ed demand for U.S. stocks from abroad. Many countries are actively depreciating their currencies which makes holding assets in U.S. dollars a good investment. Pair this with the U.S. economys relative strength compared with the rest of the world, and it becomes obvious why our stock market remains at such high levels. But the question going forward is whether defensive assets like bonds and gold will outperform the overall market. In the near term, I dont see anything that will reverse this course. I dont think anyone expects the Fed to raise rates in the foreseeable future, which should put a soft floor on bond prices. In addition, U.S. Treasury bond demand should remain robust as sovereign bond investors flee other countries with zero or negative rates. The same holds for gold and defensive stock names. Beyond the near term, the global economy is going to go one of two ways. Either it will recover from its recent hurdles, whereby growth stocks and emerging markets will outperform and safe haven assets will be brutalized in a massive selloff, or the global economy will fall back into recession, and U.S. stocks will not be immune for a signifi-cant downturn. Right now I am 50-50 on which scenario is more likely, so I am getting a plan in place to react to either scenario. Personally, I am using dips in the market „ like the drop after the Brexit announcement „ to load up on some beaten down stocks such as large cap biotech names. But am I nervous? You bet.

Congress Ave. (at Lantana Road), Lake Worth; (561) 530-4920 or Cost: $6. The Skinny: Yes, Fostorias American pattern, first made in 1915, is pressed glass. But it falls under the Elegant Depression-era category simply because it is of superior quality glass that was hand-finished once it was popped from the mold. The hot glass would have been shaped and curved by hand at Fostorias Moundsville, W.Va., factory. The bottom of the 9-inch piece was buffed and polished until smooth and the glass itself was fire-finished to make it sparkle. You frequently see plates, trays and stemware in Fostorias American pattern. But the muffin trays, while not rare, are not everyday items. Something cool? Thatll serve you right every time. Q „ Scott Simmons A Fostoria American pattern muffin tray THE FIND: It was nearly 50 years ago, but I remember one meal clearly. Uncle Bob removed the lid from the Fostoria sugar bowl and added two or three spoonfuls of sugar to his matching glass, and stirred vigorously. Then he added another. An inch of sugar stood in the bottom of that glass and I laughed. The things we remember.The decade in which Uncle Bob stirred his tea was the 1960s. During that time, President Kennedy was assassinated. So was Martin Luther King. People were fighting for their rights everywhere in America, including Fort Myers, where we lived at the time, and Pahokee, where Uncle Bob and my Aunt Cleo were pillars of the community. But all was peaceful and happy in the Douthit household, where Uncle Bob sipped his tea and the family laughed around the dinner table. It may have been Easter „ I remember hunting for eggs tucked among the shrubbery in their yard when I was a little boy. I couldnt tell you what we ate „ probably ham or fried chicken, cooked in Aunt Cleos Guardian ware, a casserole of some sort, ambrosia salad and pound cake for dessert. It is that day I remember whenever I see a piece of Fostorias American pattern. The pressed-glass pattern was heavy and eye-catching „ possibly the most popular of the so-called Elegant glass patterns over the 70 or so years it was made. It was well made and could be fancy, but was not fussy, just like Aunt Cleo herself. She used her glassware every day „ that sugar bowl sat on the kitchen table ready to sweeten coffee and tea. At one point, values were on the rise for Fostoria American and other Elegant Depression-era glass patterns. Those values have slipped in recent years, but that does not matter. I have Aunt Cleo and Uncle Bobs Fostoria iced tea glasses, and the sugar bowl. I look at them and I remember a gentler time in my life. That glass is precious to me, so its value transcends any dollar amount. After all, how can you put a price on a memory? Q LOOK WHAT I FOUND SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYFostoria made its American pattern from 1915 to 1982 in Moundsville, W.Va. Other companies have continued making pieces in the pattern.

Call 561.292.2745 shu Beat The Heat Special Save Up To 20% up for the league anyway and has been a croquet player ever since. She is playing with the 8th Annual Summer Croquet League this year, too, and looks forward to every match. Its different than the croquet we played in our backyards as kids,Ž Mrs. Beck said. Its more like playing pool on the greens.Ž Theres a lot of strategy involved.Its a problem-solving game,Ž said Dick Brackett of West Palm Beach, who, as a volunteer and longtime croquet player, runs the Summer League. Its a game you can learn in 15 minutes. Anybody can play as long as they can swing a mallet.Ž A low-impact sport, croquet involves walking, bending and swinging a mallet between your legs to hit a plastic ball. People of any age can play. Its a very gentle, calm and social game,Ž said Rick Landry, the croquet pro at the National Croquet Center. Mr. Landry, who lives in Wellington, assists Mr. Brackett with the Summer League. There are four types of croquet: Association Rules; 6-Wicket American; Golf Croquet (the type played in the Summer League); and 9-Wicket, the kind many played in the backyard as children. An average game lasts 75 to 90 minutes,Ž Mr. Landry said. The proper attire is white clothes and flat shoes, but excep-tions are made to visitors and Summer Leaguers, who may dress more casually and colorfully.Ž Established eight years ago, the Sum-mer League was organized as a way to introduce more peo-ple to the sport. Croquet is a small universe of people,Ž Mr. Brackett said. A lot of the players came to Palm Beach in the winter and then left for the summer months. The club would be kind of empty in the summer and we wanted to build up membership and to give people a chance to experience the sport and a tournament.Ž The Charles P. Steuber National Croquet Center, at Florida Mango Road and Summit Boulevard in West Palm Beach, is home to the largest dedicated croquet facility in the world. Its 19 full-sized cro-quet lawns stretch over four acres behind a 19,000-square-foot Caribbean-Colonial-style clubhouse with a kitchen, bar and seating for dinner and special events. Players come from all over the world to compete at the center, named for Mr. Steuber, a Croquet Hall of Famer who bought the land and funded the building in 2000-2001. During professional tournament play, quiet is expected. But during the summer, players, many of whom are new to the sport, enjoy music, drinks and a reason-ably priced dinner in the clubhouse or on the veranda. Marie Sweetser, director of guest and membership services, might be found tool-ing around on a golf cart to deliver a glass of wine or a beer during Summer League play. It is a very fun environment,Ž she said.Andy Winer, an Okeeheelee Middle School teacher, will drink to that! He and his croquet partner (and wife), software analyst Melissa Winchester, chose the team name Ill Have AnotherŽ (and, yes, they borrowed the moniker from the 2012 Kentucky Derby winner). Its a very pleasant place to be,Ž said Mr. Winer. Its a social event as much as a competitive one. I like to win, but if Im going to choose between winning and hav-ing a good time, Im going to choose having a good time.Ž Sometimes his team enjoys both. As beginning players when the Summer League formed in 2009, the West Palm Beach couple came in second right out of the gate. The Summer League,Ž Mr. Brackett said, is people interacting and getting to know each other. At first, they are all so polite and by the end of the tournament theyre hitting the ball much harder. Its fun. Its just fun.Ž Learn to playFree croquet lessons are available at 10 a.m. every Saturday morning. Learn how to hit the ball, score wickets, learn strategy and plot moves. Participants need to wear flat-soled shoes. Lunch is available in the clubhouse. Reservations for lessons are required.

Spectators are welcome to watch and have drinks and dinner in the clubhouse. Play begins at 6 p.m. On Tuesday evening, Aug. 9, there will be a final playoff between the top teams from each nights Amateur and Championship blocks to determine overall winners. Medals will be awarded to the first and second place finishers in the championship block. Certificates will be awarded for winners and runners up in the amateur block. Spe-cial awards for sportsmanship, team spirit, most improved team, youngest player and best new team name will be presented Aug. 9 at the Awards Dinner. The public is welcome to attend any Summer League activities. The Croquet Grille & Lounge will be open for drinks and light dinner fare throughout the tournament. Team members pay between $25 to $40 to play, depending on how many members are on the team (2-4 players are allowed per team). Instruction and practice ses-sions are included.

It has a sense of humor. We poke fun of the headband.Ž Actors (all volunteer) have worked hard to learn lines and dance moves. But Mr. Buffalo says the dancing isnt technically dancing. Its more grooving and swaying to the music and they are picking it up,Ž he says a week before the show opened. I just want the performers to feel comfortable.Ž Now 40, Mr. Buffalo was a teenager in the 80s. I was not into metal bands, but my brother was so I remember a lot of the references,Ž he says. I was more into pop music. I liked Madonna.Ž Characters in the play are characters we can all identify with,Ž Mr. Buffalo says. And there are, Mr. Buffalo says, a lot of momentsŽ in the musical, although he declined to choose one as the best. Some cast members have favorites, however. One of them is Dimitri Gann of Boyn-ton Beach, who plays Joey Primo. He says his favorite moment in the production is the Riot Police Slo-Mo scene during The Final Countdown. Its just such a purely theatri-cal moment,Ž Mr. Gann says, something that no other art form can really recreate. Telling a part of the story purely through movement is so much fun!Ž Another cast member, Ashlley Rodriguez of West Palm Beach, who plays Regi-na, says it hard to pick a favorite scene. I love all of them for their unique and funny moments but Id have to say my favorite song is the Act 1 finale, Here I Go Again.Ž Katie Petronio of Boca Raton, who plays a waitress and protester, enjoys grooving to the music. I absolutely love dancing and all of the choreography,Ž she says. Matthew Buffalo is very talented and an incredible person to work with.Ž Jason Ziev of Ocean Ridge is an intern at the community theater who plays Drew. He says he enjoys playing the role and the Lake Worth Playhouse in general. The playhouse has been a second home for me,Ž Mr. Ziev says. Ive grown up here, made some of my best friends here, shared it with my family, and developed my love for theatre. The playhouse contributed to my desire to pursue theatre professionally, and because of this, I am now studying musical theatre at (Emerson) college.Ž The Lake Worth Playhouse, a nonprofit community theater, has year-round pro-gramming that includes award-winning dramas, comedies, musicals, Broadway favorites, childrens shows, international ballets and operas in cinema, live concert series and alternative programming.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Doughnuts The Place: Jupiter Donuts, 420 US Highway 1, North Palm Beach; 557-5291 or The Price: $1.19 each The Details: I had not been to Jupiter Donuts before, and heres why: They always ran out of doughnuts and closed most mornings before I had even rolled out of bed. So I was delighted when, some months ago, the company opened a location near my office in North Palm Beach. But its not along my usual morning route, so I still had not been. I finally altered my route, and I now understand how the company can sell out early. The doughnuts are moist, and have substance without being too cakey. Theyre sweet, but not cloyingly so. The red velvet doughnut, topped with a dollop of cream cheese, was a treat „ light, sweet, but not too sweet, as was the Heath Bar, a chocolate doughnut rolled in the toffee candy. And the scent of that maple-frosted doughnut? It was heavenly. Q „ Sc ott Simmons When Wolf gang Greiter was a boy in Austria, the chef in the family-owned ski resort restaurant would ask him to go to the fish tank, pick out a live trout and bring it to the kitchen for a patrons din-ner. Nothing would please young Wolf-gang more. He remembers those days fondly: his mother making a creamy ragout from the wild mushrooms he and his sib-lings would gather in the local forest or the wild strawberries and blueber-ries they picked for pancakes and fruit tartlets topped with fresh cream. His family operated a hotel and restaurant in Serfaus in the Alps where Mr. Greiter became part of the culinary and hospital-ity world that he never left. Sitting in the specialty Admiralty Club restaurant on the Grand Celebration cruise ship docked in Riviera Beach, Mr. Greiter is surrounded by an interna-tional team of chefs and assistants who sing his praises as vice president of Food and Beverage Operations for the Baha-mas Paradise Cruise Line. He brings the magic to life,Ž said Maitre d Helder Santos, who hails from Portugal. Responsible for ordering all the food and creating the menus, recipes and matching wine and beverage selections for passengers who cruise to the Baha-mas embarking locally every second day, Mr. Greiter orders hundreds of steaks and fresh fish, thousands of eggs, gallons of milk, pounds of cheeses and chocolate and cases of wines, testing the new reci-pes as needed. Having traveled throughout the world, Mr. Greiter is known for going to the local food markets in various countries, picking out fresh, in-season foods and creating dishes that surprise and delight his guests. He is a fan of tapas, featuring the robust flavors of country cuisine he relished in Ibiza, off the Mediterranean coast of Spain, and where he operated restaurants with family after studying hotel management and tourism at the University of Innsbruck. When traveling in Australia, he tasted his first crocodile and emu burgers and brought them on his ship at the time for a barbecue. In Chile, he favored a dish called locos,Ž something like abalone, he says. I like to find things I never saw before,Ž said Mr. Greiter, who settled in the United States in 1994 after he trav-eled the world. I have respect for dif-ferent types of cultures. Creating new experiences with people and food is fun for me.Ž The diversity Mr. Greiter values in the food is evident through his crew of inter-national chefs who come from India, Latin America, the Philippines, the local islands and Eastern Europe. Although Mr. Greiter has experienced culinary highlights from all over the world, there are some simple dishes he favors at home in Palm Beach County with his wife, Marcy. Often after a long day at work, Mr. Greiter will prepare len-til or chicken soup, a salad and salmon or fajitas with a prized bottle of wine. The key for Mr. Greiter, as always, is to make the food fresh and natural. If he has time, he might even indulge in his favorite „ a Grand Marnier souffl.
