StMarysMC.com We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple Â… Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years COMMENTARYI am womanShe probably never was a household name in her own time nor is she accord-ed the deference often paid to others who shared her cause. Yet Ida Husted Harper was not a minor figure in Ameri-can history. She probably is best known as the biographer of Susan B. Anthony. In 1852, Anthony joined and led with Elizabeth Cady Stanton the womenÂs rights movement in the United States. Their efforts became the genesis of the modern womenÂs rights movement. Harper was born in 1851 and lived until 1931. She came of age in the early stages of the womenÂs movement and lived long enough to witness its success in secur-ing womenÂs right to vote. Congress approved the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and it was ratified in 1920 by the majority of the states. During the long era of this constitutional fight, Harper devoted herself to the cause of womenÂs equality, became a suffragette, befriended Miss Anthony, and became one of the movementÂs self-appointed, de facto historians. She was an author and journalist. Her essays and columns appeared regularly in various publications. She sometimes used a male pseudonym to hoodwink editors who refused to consider content submitted by women writers. She wasnÂt deterred. She understood the importance of the history unfolding and its implications for her gender. She meant to seal her part in telling it with zeal in the extreme. After writing Antho-nyÂs biography, she burned thousands of archival documents, eliminating access to original source materials by future historians. The deed hinted of an almost ruthless determination to dominate the ver-sion of the story she felt compelled to tell and to protect its authenticity from future edits. But her lifeÂs mission was to support and spread the ideas of the womenÂs movement and to document in exquisite detail the breadth of the chal-lenges faced by those supporting the cause. This fight was about the country living up to its democratic values and it was being fought from the state house to the White House. A significant milestone in HarperÂs early efforts was her collaboration with Anthony and others in the writing and editing of the early volumes of ÂThe His-tory of WomenÂs Suffrage.ÂŽ She outlived Anthony by more than a decade, continu-ing to document the efforts to win wom-enÂs suffrage, adding and editing in 1922 a fifth and sixth volume to the four tomes published earlier. The six-volume series take up two feet of shelf space. Each vol-ume numbers close to a thousand pages. ÂThe History of WomenÂs SuffrageÂŽ is a monumental work. It is a historical treasure and its relevance sustained by current events. Ninety years after Harper finished the last chapter, a major piece of womenÂs movement business remains unfinished: The Equal Rights Amend-ment, guaranteeing equal rights for all women. Suffragettes Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman drafted the amendment, and it was first introduced in Congress in 1923. Though Paul and Eastman thought womenÂs enfranchisement essential, they did not believe securing it would end gender discrimination against women. Their proposed amendment failed. It languished thereafter for decades, its momentum grown cold in the saucer of the populism that gave it its rise With 90 years of hindsight, the judgment of Paul and Eastman is confirmed. Female victims of rape, wage discrimina-tion, and/or discrimination because of pregnancy donÂt get the same standard of judicial review afforded other forms of discrimination, and women are consis-tently paid less than men working in jobs of comparable value. In 1967, the National Organization for Women resurrected the ERA, lobbying Congress to pass it. Surprisingly, in 1972, it did. The states had seven years to ratify. Twenty-one states did so promptly. The womenÂs movement was in full throttle. We were singing, ÂI am woman, hear me roar.ÂŽ But then the politics changed. Feminist demands were blunt and purposeful: We own and celebrate wom-enÂs sexuality; women have the right to control their own bodies; and womenÂs rights are human rights. Within a year, a backlash erupted. The ERA was branded a threat to traditional family values and a feminist plot to undermine womenÂs status as social and economic append-ages to men. Ah, the memories. It all came back, prompted by the announcement Phyllis Schlafly had died at 92. She is undoubt-edly the individual most responsible for the failure of the ERA three states shy of ratification. An arch-conservative, she championed womenÂs subservience to husband, hearth and home, glorifying procreation as womenÂs true destiny. She founded the Eagle Forum, and Stop ERA to organize the opposition, using tactics of fear and exaggeration Â„ male predators stalking women in unisex Âpotties,ÂŽ a government ban on all-girls schools, a military draft of teenage girls and male and female inmates sharing jail cells. And the ultimate threat? The country would be overrun by liberated, independent women fully possessed of dreams, minds, and capability all their own. And the country couldnÂt have that, could it?

At bot-tom, the cause of the freak-out is simple: Trump believes in immigration laws, and the countryÂs elite really do not. Minus a few trademark excesses that are too ingrained in the Trump shtick to abandon at this point Â„ e.g., we are going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it Â„ TrumpÂs speech was rock-solid on policy. The core of it represents what, more or less, any realistic regime of immi-gration enforcement would look like. That the opinion elite recoiled in horror shows how out of sympathy they are with borders and what it takes to enforce them. It was understandable that every-one felt whiplash. Trump had primed people to expect something different, both with his public wobbliness and his quick strike into Mexico, where he lucked out in a meeting with that countryÂs hapless president, Enrique Pena Nieto. And Trump didnÂt do himself any favors by giving the Arizona speech in a rally setting. When he is in his shouty mode, Trump could read the phone book and make it sound like an outlandish screed. All that said, Trump nailed a few theses to the door of his promised great, impen-etrable border wall that are important and too often neglected: Q Immigration policy should serve the interests of the United States and its workers. This should be axiomatic. Yet it has taken Trump to make the proposition central to the immigration debate. There is no doubt that illegal immigration is good for illegal immigrants, but the first obligation of the United States is to pro-tect its citizens and legal residents. Q Illegal immigrants compete against low-skilled workers already here and are a net drain on the government. Even if they work hard (and most do), illegal immigrants are unlikely to earn enough to pay much in taxes, and their families access welfare benefits through their chil-dren. Q ÂAnyone who has entered the United States illegally,ÂŽ Trump said, Âis subject to deportation.ÂŽ This sounds radical only because of the progress the left has made in delegitimizing deportation. If we arenÂt going to have a sweeping amnesty or tolerate the status quo, illegal immigrants must be subject to deportation. Q Legal immigration, too, should serve the interests of the nation. It shouldnÂt be out of bounds, as Trump suggested, to want to tap the brakes and adjust whom we are accepting to emphasize Âmerit, skill and proficiency.ÂŽ TrumpÂs speech was the soundest immigration speech ever delivered by a presidential nominee, and a total policy victory for restrictionists. There are two problems, though. One is that it is such a tough-minded agenda, it needs to be presented with a deft touch. Instead, Trump seemingly went out of his way to make his policy sound as audacious and threatening as possible. Two, if Trump loses, this agenda will be discredited, and restrictionists will instantly be as embattled as ever, once again fighting a desperate rearguard action against a political establishment and opinion elite that consider their pri-orities bizarre and hateful. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe damn mediaIn a contentious election year, highly experienced professionals in business, law, medicine, education, the sciences or even public service discover they have little sway. Instead, itÂs those self-righteous guttersnipes, those spitball sculptors of history in a momentÂs making that have the power: the damn media. What they report and how they report it Â„ the writers and editors, the photogra-phers and artists Â„ carry gravity and influ-ence far beyond the measure of the men and women themselves, it seems. Maybe thatÂs why so many people blame Âthe mediaÂŽ for helping to create presidential candidates who are given too much or too little ink or airtime. Who are questioned too much (ÂitÂs because sheÂs a womanÂŽ) or too little (ÂitÂs because heÂs entertaining, and people donÂt care if he liesÂŽ). Who are given voice only because Âthe mediaÂŽ are too liberal, or Âthe mediaÂŽ are too conservative, lazy or uninformed. As a term, ÂmediaÂŽ is a fat, flat-bottomed freighter. It can hold everything from the weekly shopper, to Facebook prom posts, to opinion shows delivered by self-con-fidant on-air personalities who would be ceaseless yappers if theyÂd been born dogs, to the stories and analyses of traditional magazines, news shows and newspapers. ItÂs all media but it isnÂt all news.The traditional news media include daily newspapers, thoughtfully produced jour-nals or on-air shows, and even outfits like Florida Weekly, which leave the nitty-gritty reporting of cop, sports and local-govern-ment events to the dailies and television in favor of news analysis, in-depth news, food, arts, business and opinion reporting. The traditional news media, as IÂm describing them, keep giving everybody his or her say Â„ on the left, the right, the middle, the top and the bottom. Here in Florida WeeklyÂs opinion pages, for example, you can read a real right-wing didact like Rich Lowry (a smart one, though). Or you can read me or Leslie Lilly, as youÂre doing now in my case. This clearly demonstrates that traditional media are even willing to give lunatics a say. (ÂRoger Williams, the voice of the lunatic fringe.ÂŽ) When people say, ÂWhy donÂt the media do more positive news Â„ more stories that show how decent and brave and kind and hard-working the American people are?ÂŽ Â„ theyÂve failed to understand news. It happened last week to Howard Schultz, the well-intentioned CEO of the Starbucks Corp. Starbucks will now intro-duce podcasts in its coffee shops meant to counter the Âdark cloudÂŽ created by Âthe mediaÂŽ in America Â„ not infomercials, he insisted on National Public Radio, but positive news. ÂI think weÂre trying to, in many ways, rekindle and remind people how ordinary people every single day are doing extraor-dinary things,ÂŽ Mr. Schultz said. ÂAnd I think given how divisive and vitriolic this political season has been and continues to be, and how the media, unfortunately, has painted America with such a dark cloud, I feel itÂs really not the true American story.ÂŽ The true story of Americans, heÂs decided, is positive: Âadvancing their community and loving thy neighbor.ÂŽ ThatÂs very sweet and delightfully caffeinated. But traditional news reporters by obligation and duty must never distinguish ÂpositiveÂŽ from ÂnegativeÂŽ news. That the American people are fundamentally decent, loyal and hard-working is not news Â„ not to them and not to anybody else. We all know that. Such reporters and editors insist on only one important thing, and in as much depth and nuance as time and space allow: What happened. Good reporters are never cyn-ics, as skeptical as they may be. Paradoxi-cally, they harbor an unassailable faith that Americans want to know what happened, whether it comes with sugar and cream, or not. If people canÂt get at the facts, and via the facts at some semblance of the truth, they canÂt get anywhere or do anything. They have no power, reporters believe. There are only three kinds of news in traditional media: Good news, bad news and event news that canÂt be judged good or bad without more context. The news might be sweet, amusing, worrisome, disturbing, instructive or entertain-ing, uplifting, tragic, joyful or inexplicably odd Â„ it might or might not be Âlove thy neighborÂŽ news Â„ but it gets reported only because reporters and their editors figure it could be of service or interest to people, and therefore people should know. Good news, for example, could be something like this: The U.S. Sugar Corp., Florida Crystals and the King Ranch announced jointly today they will save the Everglades for the American people by donating 300,000 acres of their land surrounding Lake Okeechobee to the state of Florida for wetland restoration and water storage.Bad news might be: The Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee collapsed along its southern boundary today flooding the Florida peninsula from South Bay to South Beach and washing both Fort Lauderdale and Miami out to sea. (On second thought that could also be defined as good news Â„ but that would be your call.) What role does advertising play in what gets reported and how, since one way or another advertising fuels the news business? In traditional media outlets, very little to none. Neither Hillary Clinton nor Don-ald Trump, for example, can buy favor-able news coverage from traditional media. Even God couldnÂt do it. They can buy advertising around the news, of course, but the distinction should always be made obvious: News is news, editorial opinions are editorial opinions and advertising is advertising. ThatÂs how the business works when itÂs working right. And this year in the tradi-tional media itÂs working beautifully, in my opinion. If thereÂs a Âdark cloudÂŽ hovering over the American diaspora, Âthe mediaÂŽ have not created it. But itÂs damn sure obligated to report it. Q roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

When we visit them, we donÂt sim-ply see the artistÂs vision, but also fashions, food, furnishings and, yes, animals from a given point in time. Many famous art museums feature portraits of people with their dogs, cats and horses, but specialty museums focus on works that portray the animals themselves. A visit to one of them is a feast of fine art depicting the role of animals in soci-ety through the ages and how they have changed Â„ or not. No matter which one you visit, youÂll be rewarded with a fascinating glimpse into the background of your favorite animal. Here are seven to look for: Q American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog, St. Louis. In the 14,000-square-foot Jarville House in Queeny Park are more than 700 original paintings, drawings, sculptures, porcelains and more, all depict-ing manÂs best friend. Bonus: Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to visit, too. Q Feline Historical Museum, Alliance, Ohio. Not to be outdone, the Cat Fanciers Association has a permanent home for its extensive collection of cat-themed art and other unique items, including the silver collar awarded to Cosey, who won the first Madison Square Garden ca t show in 1895 ; a bronze of a Persian by J. Clayton Bright; feline figurines from Lalique, Baccarat and Royal Doulton; and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house for a cat. Visitors may also enjoy the company of cats on the premises, including Maine coons and ragdolls. Q National Sporting Library and Museum, Middleburg, Virginia. Horse and dog lovers will appreciate the sporting art on display at this museum devoted to eques-trian and field sports. Current exhibits include Picturing English Pastimes: Brit-ish Sporting Prints at the NSLM and the Chronicle of the Horse in Art. Researcher Elizabeth Tobey says, ÂParticularly signifi-cant are its holdings of early modern books from the 16th through 18th centuries from Europe and Great Britain on horseman-ship, hunting, natural history and animal husbandry.ÂŽ Q International Museum of the Horse, Lexington, Kentucky. TheyÂre not just hors-ing around at this museum. Its collections include fine and folk art, photographs, tack, trophies, sculptures and horse-drawn vehicles. ÂCalumet FarmÂs massive collection of historic racing trophies alone is worth the visit to the International Museum of the Horse, and the strong selection of per-manent exhibits is bolstered regularly by impressive special exhibitions,ÂŽ says Gle-nye Oakford of Lexington, Kentucky, senior editor at The Chronicle of the Horse. ÂIf youÂre more into history thatÂs truly alive, just step outside to the Hall of Champions, where some of the racing and show worldÂs heroes, including the wildly popular 2003 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes win-ner Funny Cide, greet visitors.ÂŽ Q National Bird Dog Museum, Grand Junction, Tennessee. Anyone who has ever loved a sporting breed wonÂt want to miss this bird dog field of dreams. Displays include a sculpture of national champion pointer ElhewÂs Snakefoot and sporting dog art, photography and memorabilia. Q Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Museum, Wasilla, Alaska. Housed in a log cabin, the museumÂs displays feature trophies, photos and videos of the iconic race commemorat-ing a thousand-mile run to bring life-saving diphtheria serum to disease-stricken Nome in 1925. In summer, take a ride in a cart pulled by sled dogs to get a taste of what is now a National Historic Trail. Q Museum of Hounds and Hunting North America, Leesburg, Virginia. Housed at stately Morven Park, this collec-tion ranges from a hound head sculpture to a colonial-era hunting horn to the hunting diaries of Gen. George S. Patton.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 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 todayÂs market.

became a founding member of the multi-platinum-selling group Sister Hazel. ÂI was always playing music Â„ since I was little,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said as an Aero-smith song streamed from his laptop. ÂThen I learned that girls liked guys in bands.ÂŽBassist-turned-brokerThe licensed Realtor joined Singer Island Realty in October 2015. He origi-nally obtained his credentials as part of a plan to go into business with his wife, Eve, an int erior designer. With his architectural background Â„ he majored in architecture at the University of Florida Â„ and her high-end dcor firm Â„ she owns Beres Design Group in Jupiter Â„ the couple wanted to launch a line of signature homes together. ÂI was all about using my creativity to build something,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂThereÂs music in architecture and archi-tecture in music.ÂŽ Then, another opportunity arose. While plucking his instrument for Sun-day services at The Borland Center in Palm Beach Gardens, he met church guitarist Ray Carrano, who has owned and operated Singer Island Realty since 2001. Mr. Carrano made an offer too good to refuse, and the two slingers became partners in January. ÂIn our first seven months of business, we have had several listings and several sales, including our first $1 million-plus listing on the island,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. The company focuses on oceanfront condos, waterfront homes and vacation properties. It is undergoing a rebranding in an effort to let buyers and sellers know a dynamic duo is in town whose goal is to become synonymous with Singer Island real estate. ÂI built my musical career on delivering quality and writing and performing from the heart,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂThatÂs how I approach real estate. If I represent you, I am going to be all-in.ÂŽ Do clients call on the rock star because they know him more as a bassist than a broker? ÂNo, not one,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂNow, there have been a couple clients or col-leagues who have found out who I was after we were already doing business together. But I like it that way.ÂŽ The casually clad character of cool looks at the guitar on the wall and speak-er on the floor and said both might be dead giveaways Â„ not that heÂs con-cerned. ÂOur company is going to be successful on its own merit,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂI donÂt expect any favors, nor do I want anyone to judge me negatively because of my background. Hey, I can negotiate one hell of a deal in my leather jacket.ÂŽEarly daysPiano was among his first formal forays into the field of keys, notes and tempos. ÂMy mom forced me to take lessons for, like, years, and I hated it,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂIt almost made me not want to be into music anymore.ÂŽ His father gave the budding bassist a guitar in seventh grade. That inexpen-sive Cort changed everything. The self-described Âgarage playerÂŽ put together makeshift bands with friends and made noise on concrete floors throughout the neighborhood. One concert attracted an unexpected 1,000 partiers to a ware-house next to Rapids Water Park on Military Trail. ÂWe got kicked out of our rehearsal space,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said of his uncleÂs building. It didnÂt stop him. In Gainesville, he belonged to four bands, one of them Sis-ter Hazel. Named after a local mission-ary whom frontman Ken Block admired for her good deeds, the quintet made its official debut in 1993. ÂSister Hazel was the least-paying gig I had but the one with the most potential, and I knew it,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. He was pursuing a masterÂs degree at the time and told his professors he had decided to take a two-year sabbatical to go on the road. ÂI made the call, and the rest is history,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. Block, lead guitarist Ryan Newell, guitarist/vocalist Andrew Copeland and drummer Mark Trojanowski, along with the rock ÂnÂ roll Realtor, released their first album ÂSister HazelÂŽ in 1994. It included an acoustic version of ÂAll for You,ÂŽ a hit that on their second album, ÂSomewhere More Familiar,ÂŽ was record-ed as an electric version and sold more than 1 million copies. This year, the band came out with its ninth studio album, ÂLighter in the Dark,ÂŽ and continues to entertain legions of fans known as Hazelnuts. ÂI just sleep less,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said when asked how he manages his two pro-fessions. ÂSeriously, IÂll be backstage working out a deal, or IÂll be texting in between songs.ÂŽHusband-turned-fatherSister HazelÂs No. 1 rule is family first. After more than two decades of success, from playing small clubs throughout Florida to arena appearances all over the country, everyone in the band is married. ÂWe all have replacements,ÂŽ Mr. Beres said. ÂWe all have a couple of them, and theyÂre on call so the band can go on. Our audiences have come to accept it and appreciate it.ÂŽ He has taken his 14-year-old daughter, Jordan, who wants to be a songwriter, on the bus with him during the summer. He plans to do the same with 10-year-old son, Kai, a drummer like dad. The fact that the band doesnÂt have to practice as much as it used to also frees up time to spend with his children. ÂHeÂs a great, amazing father,ÂŽ Ms. Beres said. ÂTheyÂve grown up with this Â„ him being gone and then being home. ItÂs sort of all they know.ÂŽ Mr. Beres travels 100 or so days annually, mostly extended weekends. So he pulls parental duties during the week while Ms. Beres works, and then she takes over Thursday through Sunday. The two have been married for 15 years. ÂThereÂs definitely a lot of pros and cons,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs really fun, and itÂs really challenging at the same time. HeÂs onstage and living his dream, and then we have to manage it. ItÂs definitely not a normal 9-to-5.ÂŽ Mr. Beres cooks dinner Â„ Mexican food is a specialty Â„ and walks the dog Â„ a female rescue mutt named Pink Floyd Â„ when not on tour, jamming out in the spotlight, to thousands. ÂIÂll tell you what: Jett probably is the most modest guy IÂve met in the busi-ness,ÂŽ Mr. Carrano said. ÂYou would think a rock star would want to be catered to and pampered. HeÂs complete-ly the opposite.ÂŽ Mr. BeresÂ skills as a broker will equal, if not exceed, his skills as a bassist, Mr. Carrano said. ÂReal estate is in his blood. You can tell he loves it. He doesnÂt give himself enough credit. HeÂs going to do very well in this business. I see it dripping down from his rock ÂnÂ roll career. HeÂs really driven.ÂŽ Q A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY BERESFrom page 1ADAM BARON / FLORIDA WEEKLYjett Beres joined Singer Island Realty in October 2015.

ÂWhatÂs been really great this year is that weÂre seeing a record-breaking nesting sea-son for the loggerhead sea turtles, which is very positive,ÂŽ Ms. McCracken said. Last year, loggerhead nests reached 10,679. ÂWe still have to continue collecting data to know, but in the short term, by ana-lyzing multiple years of data, you can start to piece together how the population of your area is doing,ÂŽ Ms. McCracken said. Surveyors at the center keep track of the number of crawls in addition to the number of nests. They also calculate the success of the hatchout by excavating the clutch and counting its remaining eggs. To paint a clearer picture, details such as how high up on the dune nests are dug and whether they are proximate to buildings, piers, seawalls and other manmade struc-tures are gathered. ÂThere are a lot of different factors that influence the nests,ÂŽ Ms. McCracken said. The weather also plays a role in productivity. Sometimes, the dime-sized babies scrambling toward the ocean succumb to South FloridaÂs heat and humidity. When that happens, observers who otherwise are prohibited from touching the federally protected species are allowed to pick up struggling hatchlings and drop them off in outdoor coolers checked by staff members throughout the day. Ms. McCracken attributes the increase in the loggerhead population to bans on poaching, enforcement of regulations on fisheries and requirements for shrimping vessels to use turtle-excluding devices. ÂNow, almost 30 years later, the population is reproductive and coming back,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs what everybody has been work-ing for. I know the sea-turtle community is very hopeful that we continue to see this trend.ÂŽ At John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach, more than 1,900 logger-head nests have been accounted for along the 1-mile strand, a figure that impresses park-services specialist Art Carton. ÂIt was definitely a great year for loggerheads,ÂŽ Mr. Carton said. ÂIt just shows that the population keeps increasing and doing better and better. All the things that were put into place in the Â90s are starting to bear fruit.ÂŽ During the peak of season in June and July, as many as 50 nesting females lum-bered onto land each night. ÂThe double-digit nesting was exciting,ÂŽ Mr. Carton said. ÂThe species is healthy, for sure.ÂŽ In addition to loggerheads, two more species of sea turtles frequent the area during nesting season Â„ greens and leatherbacks. Greens, whose status is threat-ened like the loggerheads, have a biennial pattern in laying their eggs, and this year is a down year. ÂTheyÂre known to do that,ÂŽ Mr. Carton said. ÂYou can see on the graphs that we have.ÂŽ The news is not bad. Rather, it means 2017 will bring an arribada of greens to the Gold Coast. ÂNext year, we might have another 1,200 or 1,300 or more,ÂŽ Mr. Carton said, noting the park beat its 2013 record of 1,395 greens with 1,493 in 2015. Leatherbacks, brown behemoths that can reach weights of 1,000 pounds and lengths of 8 feet, are the rarest nesters and remain endangered. All three species are at the forefront of a sea-turtle-specific Citizen Science program at the park. A group of volun-teer Âcitizen scientistsÂŽ tracks the reptilesÂ activity and behavior and uploads the findings to a database accessible by other Citizen Science programs. One of the things the team learned this year had to do with the gestation period of the eggs. Previously thought to last 60 to 70 days, they found it averaged 50.3 days. Mr. Carton said the volunteers work under the supervision of the parkÂs rang-ers and are trained to follow the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-sionÂs protocols on egg excavation. The public is prohibited from coming into contact with the nests. ÂDonÂt touch them,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf thereÂs a hatchout, just stand back and watch.ÂŽ Kirt Rusenko, a marine conservationist at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton, said sea turtles face their biggest threat from litter. Trash on the beach can cause false crawls for females, meaning they abandoned their nesting attempts, and obstructions for hatchlings. Worse problems include cellphones and flash-lights on the beach at night. ÂThose will disorient hatchlings,ÂŽ Dr. Rusenko said. So will sky-glow issues, or light pollution. ÂEven if you live inland, just make sure youÂre not wasting light,ÂŽ Dr. Rusenko said. ÂIn other words, donÂt light the sky. Only light what you need to. YouÂll save electricity, and it will make our sea turtles a lot happier, too.ÂŽ Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is responsible for five miles of coastline from High-land Beach to the Broward County line. Its loggerhead nests, at latest count, were 729, up from 710 at the end of the 2015 season. ÂWe had a good year, too,ÂŽ Dr. Rusenko said. ÂItÂs just not a record.ÂŽ Across the state, from the panhandle to the tip of the peninsula to the Georgia line, records are being shattered. Although the final tallies from the FWC have yet to be released, it appears the 200-plus beaches the agency analyzes will have a banner year. ÂWe donÂt have an answer that the numbers are up because of X, Y or Z,ÂŽ said Anne Meylan, a senior research scientist at the FWC in St. Petersburg. ÂCertainly, conservation in Florida, and the U.S. and the Caribbean in general, has helped sea turtles.ÂŽ Ms. Meylan coordinates two studies through the agencyÂs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute: the Statewide Nest-ing Beach Survey and the Index Nesting Beach Survey. Both are aimed at further-ing research into and conservation of the wildlife. ÂSea turtles are magical,ÂŽ she said. ÂTheyÂre special. They migrate thousands of miles to go to a nesting beach. They can return to the same patch of beach year after year. They have some pretty unique biology that weÂre still trying to understand, and if we didnÂt have them, we couldnÂt study them.ÂŽ Ms. Meylan noted Florida is home to more than 90 percent of the loggerhead-nesting population in the northwest Atlan-tic region, the largest region in the globe. ÂWeÂre going to have to keep monitoring, especially when weÂre the worldÂs stewards of this species at this time,ÂŽ she said. ÂHow Florida goes is how the logger-head goes.ÂŽ Q TURTLESFrom page 1 BLAIR WITHERINGTON, FWC FISH AND WILDLIFE RESEARCH INSTITUTELoggerhead sea turtle hatchlings crawl to the sea.

Q BY STEPHANIE DAVISsdavis@Â” oridaweekly.comLydia Black may not seem like your typical Rotarian. The petite, young CEO/executive director for the Alliance for the Arts is typically found in jeans, T-shirts, and with her long mane of curls secured in a bouncy ponytail. Still in her 30s, sheÂs not the b utt oned-up, brief case carrying, conservative, business type Â„ but she is a loyal, proud, active member of the Rotary Club of Fort Myers and has been for six years and counting. Ms. Black has not only served on the board of directors at her Rotary Club, she is recognized as a Paul Harris Fel-low, an honor awarded for her contribu-tions to Rotary. Ms. Black is all about giving back to Rotary because the organization gave so much to her. When she was a high BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM SEE ROTARY A15 XConnecting through RotaryFor some business folks itÂs a chance to network, but above all else, itÂs about helping the community, Rotarians say.
school student in Rhode Island, Ms. Black was awarded a Rotary Leader-ship Scholarship, which helped make it possible for her to complete her under-graduate degree at Eastern University in Pennsylv ania. ÂRotary provided me the support to dream bigger,ÂŽ says Ms. Black. ÂBecause of my scholarship, it was important that I volunteered on cam-pus and in the com-munity, kept up a high GPA, and worked hard to achieve my goals. I credit Rotary for helping me get through college and now I want to invest in the next genera-tion Â„ for me, thatÂs what Rotary is all about.ÂŽ Rotary is an international service organization with clubs all over the world and was founded by attorney Paul Harris in Chicago in 1905 when he and a few businessmen friends met for fellowship and community conversation weekly, rotating the meetings between each otherÂs offices, hence the name ÂrotaryÂŽ club. As the Chicago club grew and members moved to other areas of the country, so did Rotary Clubs. Even-tually, clubs were formed in Europe and all over the world. With the motto, ÂService Above Self,ÂŽ Rotary can be whatever members need it to be. In Palm Beach County, the largest Rotary Club is the West Palm Beach Rotary Club, which meets weekly at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Mark Wade, the 45-year-old owner of Seacrest Services, a property man-agement company, has been a member of the West Palm Beach Rotary Club for six years and said his club stays very busy, ÂWe welcomed 12 new members in just the past few months.ÂŽ Mr. Wade said the club has a healthy mix of younger pro-fessionals and retir-ees, and that itÂs about Â60 percent men and 40 percent women.ÂŽ This year, heÂs co-chairing the annual golf tournament on Oct. 14, which helps to support many of the clubÂs commu-nity service projects including schol-arships for Palm Beach County stu-dents and grants to elementary, middle schools and high schools. For Ms. Black, whose Rotary Club of Fort Myers is informally known as the ÂDowntown Rotary,ÂŽ itÂs about giv-ing back to the community by hosting fundraisers like Italian Fest or annual concerts to raise money for local schol-arships, nonprofits and outreach programs. ÂGiving back is the heart of Rotary,ÂŽ she says. ÂFor many newer, younger members there are benefits to making connections with a really wide variety of people involved in different indus-tries Â„ there are judges, media profes-sionals, small business owners, builders and so many more. Making these con-nections, and working together to help our community, is invaluable.ÂŽ The philosophy of Rotary was adopted in 1942 and is known as the Four-Way Test in respect to thinking, saying, or doing: Q Is it the truth? Q Is it fair to all concerned? Q Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Q Will it be beneficial to all concerned? ÂThe Four-Way Test,ÂŽ says Ms. Black, Âcan apply not only to Rotary, but to life.ÂŽ Tom Briers, a Bonita Springs CPA, has been involved with Rotary clubs for the past 30 years and says that different generations of Rotarians tend to have different objectives for joining, but it all comes down to one common goal, and thatÂs community service. ÂMillennials might enjoy the networking aspect more,ÂŽ he said, Âwhile we older guys like fellowship and enjoy-ing a meal together. Rotary is what you make of it Â„ but most importantly, the ethics and standards are high.ÂŽ Like many organizations that are over a century old, Rotary began as an all-male club, but as many women reached higher positions in their professions, Rotary became less patriarchal, and in 1989 the Rotary Council on Legislation officially voted to allow women into all Rotary Clubs worldwide. A woman has been president of the West Palm Beach Rotary. But at the end of the day, the club goes beyond networking. ÂWhat I like most about Rotary is that when youÂre in business, you focus so much on your work Â„ maybe too much,ÂŽ said Mr. Wade, of the West Palm Beach club. ÂRotary introduces you to the needs of your community and gives you the opportunity to put your focus on giving back.ÂŽ Q GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 BUSINESS A15 MOVING ON UPAs a teenager, Beth Stevens was drum major for the Jupiter High School Marching Warrior Band. ÂI still hum John Philip Sousa songs,ÂŽ she confesses. But today, Mrs. Stevens, 36, is marching to the beat of a different drummer. She is a Certified Public Accountant at Holyfield & Thomas, LLC and was recently elected president of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. ÂOn the heels of celebrating our 75th anniversary, itÂs an honor to take the helm of such a prestigious organization focused on building the potential of female leaders, while serving our local community in such a powerful way,ÂŽ said Mrs. Stevens. The Junior League has taught her so much during the past 11 years. ÂWhen I joined, I was single, out of college a few years and had a staff posi-tion at an accounting firm,ÂŽ she said. Today, sheÂs married, a mom and a Cer-tified Public Accountant at Holyfield & Thomas, LLC. Junior League, she said, taught her leadership skills that transferred to her work life. ÂBy my third year I was chairman of our newsletter, publishing a tangible product every month,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe next year, I was leader of our Done in a Day program (which works with local nonprofits to assist in projects that can be done in a day). I learned to assign tasks and delegate, allowing people to fulfill those roles,ÂŽ she said. ÂIt helped me grow and understand people and how to learn from your mistakes.ÂŽ She also served as league treasurer.ÂAll of it led me to my passion, my current job Â„ helping nonprofits,ÂŽ she said. ÂIÂve had a lot of different experiences in leadership,ÂŽ she said. But all the work takes time. ÂItÂs like a part-time job, only you do it as a volunteer.ÂŽ Mrs. Stevens, 36, and her husband, Tom, live in Palm Beach Gardens and have two children, Samantha, 6, and Danielle, 3. ÂThey are the loves of my life and full of joy,ÂŽ she said. Her work as an accountant is challenging, she said, Â a puzzle to solve. I love helping clients.ÂŽ What she enjoys most about the league is leadership development. ÂI like seeing other members grow and develop, seeing them achieve their goals and doing something they didnÂt think they could,ÂŽ she said. The Junior League of the Palm Beaches has 750 members, including 350 active and 400 sustaining members.

It taught me responsibility, independence, and the value of money. A career highlight: Being recognized by the Florida Institute of Certi-fied Public Accountants as one of the Top 26 Under 36 in 2015; and now being named president of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. What I do when IÂm not working: Volunteering with the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. As a member, I have had many opportunities to develop and refine my leadership skills, learn more about the issues impacting our commu-nity, and provide other women opportu-nities to develop their potential. Being a wife and a mother has brought great joy to my life. I try to keep a balance by swimming, yoga, bike riding, and family activities. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Become a CPA and get involved with a professional or civic organization.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 | SECTION B WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM West Palm Beach actress Patti Gard-ner works a lot in professional theater these days, perhaps more than many of her peers. But she and all of her col-leagues constantly face an obstacle most of us never need consider Â„ how to make a living after the curtain comes down. ÂThings might be a little easier for me, because IÂve been married for 38 years to a supportive husband whose income certainly makes a difference in paying the bills,ÂŽ Ms. Gardner said. ÂIÂm grateful that with his help IÂve been able to pursue acting jobs.ÂŽ Now 61, Ms. Gardner moved with her family from New York to South Florida in 1977, when she was in her early 20s. She started out as a classical ballet dancer, but soon drifted into local com-munity theater productions that needed dancers for their musicals. ÂThe woman teaching a dance class I was taking was choreographing a pro-duction of ÂHello, Dolly!Â and they really needed dancers,ÂŽ Ms. Gardner remem-bered. ÂI had never sung in my life, but I eventually worked my way up to sing-ing roles.ÂŽ She got married and had kids, taking some time out to raise them, but her desire to perform never waned. ÂWhen the kids got older, I got back in,ÂŽ she said. ÂI worked nonunion jobs for many years and I finally went pro 15 years ago.ÂŽ Going pro means getting oneÂs membership card for ActorsÂ Equity Associa-tion and/or Screen Actors Guild-Amer-ican Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the two unions for profession-al actors.

Of that num-ber, Orlando-area based actors Â„ which includes most of Florida Â„ number 591. More than 70 percent of production contracts during that period originated in New York City.

Next show is Sept. 30-Oct. 2; wpbaf.com. Cost: $5. The Skinny: This set of 3-inch postcards brings together colorful views from 1930s Florida. The 205-foot Bok Tower, built in 1929, is among the scenes in these cards, as are moonlit coastal shots, brilliant red poinciana and poinsettia trees, pelicans and sunbathing beachgoers. The set was made by The Hartman Card Co. of Pinellas Park and was mailed with a 1-cent Martha Washington stamp that dates from 1938. Q Â„ Scott Simmons A set of 20 miniature postcards of Florida THE FIND: When my maternal grandparents first came to Florida after Christmas 1937, U.S. 41 was a two-lane road. Grandma remembered that virtually all of the streets intersecting with the Tamiami Trail in Naples were unpaved. It was that way up and down the state, she said. She also remembered the state as spectacularly beautiful, with colorful crotons, intoxicating citrus blossoms and uninterrupted views along the beaches. My grandfather loved the fishing Â„ he especially enjoyed angling for the snook that were so abundant in the coastal waters of the day. It was a natural for them to come to Florida from Indiana. They had been married in September and this was a belated wedding trip. My great-great-grandmotherÂs sister had settled in Clearwater, and viewed it as paradise. My great-grandparents owned property there as well, and had visions of retiring to the Sunshine State. There was no Disney World and no Miami Seaquarium. Bok Tower was new, soaring over the citrus groves of Lake Wales. What is now the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach was the lobby and public spaces of the Whitehall Hotel, and Mina Edison still wintered in her home on the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. It would be 20 years before my grandparents settled in Fort Myers. Even then, Florida was unspoiled. My great-grandfather referred to it ÂGodÂs countryÂŽ the day the family took him fishing in 1958. He suffered a stroke that night and never fished again. In Palm Beach County, civilization ended east of Military Trail. In Fort Myers, Cleveland Avenue gave way to pastures south of downtown, and the trip to Naples was a 30-odd mile journey through the country. That world has changed.But postcards from the era allow us a peek into the unspoiled wonder that was Florida. I collect the old linen cards of the Â40s and before to see the world they depict. Some sights still are common.Citrus still grows throughout the state, but the land near Bok Tower probably is more heavily planted with houses than orange trees. The rows of royal palms some of the cards depict are taller and even more regal nearly 80 years later. In Palm Beach County, Military Trail sets the stage for suburban sprawl that continues nearly to 20 Mile Bend. And that ride to Naples? ItÂs bumperto-bumper during season along the six and eight lanes of U.S. 41. These cards remind us of another, simpler time. IÂll take that. Q SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis set of colorful miniature postcards made by The Hartman Card Co. of Pinellas Park dates from the 1930s and offers 20 views of scenes from around the Sunshine State.
GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B3 said the number of jobs has declined lately because the Florida Legislature has not secured extended financial incentives for production companies to film in Florida. ÂOther states have more attractive incentives for producers, even though Florida has locations that are unique,ÂŽ Ms. Suarez said. ÂWe have been put into a difficult competitive situation. We didnÂt get the support we needed in the LegislatureÂs last session, so now certain counties are trying to develop incentive plans of their own.ÂŽ Both unions have no programs to assist actors in finding survival jobs. However Ms. Somma and Ms. Suarez said actors have been known to find outside work as teachers, realtors, per-sonal trainers, coaching witnesses for law offices or training medical person-nel in dealing with emergencies Â„ in addition to the more standard fallbacks such as waiting tables or driving a taxi. ÂAlso the Actors Fund, a national human services organization, provides a number of programs to help actors in such areas as financial assistance, health insurance acquisition and AIDS support, to name a few,ÂŽ Ms. Somma said. ÂThey do have a career center, where theyÂll work with members who donÂt live in New York City or Los Angeles, by telephone or email.ÂŽ Ms. Somma said the Actors FundÂs programs and services are open to both union and nonunion performers. ÂYou just have to prove you have worked in the entertainment industry and earned at least $6,500 in three of the last five years or $5,000 in five of the last ten years,ÂŽ she said. Going pro has worked out for Ms. Gardner, as she has won the Carbonell Award Â„ South FloridaÂs equivalent of the Tony Â„ and has played profes-sional area venues such as Florida Stage, Caldwell Theatre, GableStage, the Plaza Theatre, the Stage Door and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, to name a few. But she maintained holding a union member-ship card in South Florida can be a mixed blessing, because it means one can only take union jobs Â„ and those can be few and far between. ÂSome years are much leaner than others,ÂŽ Ms. Gardner said, adding she has worked survival jobs as a legal secretary and as an assistant in an insurance office. More often than not, however, she has managed to make ends meet between acting gigs by working flexibly scheduled jobs in and around area theaters. She has worked as a dance teacher and has also taught drama class-es to children, even directing and choreographing several local amateur pro-ductions. ÂRight now, though, IÂm working in the offices of the Arts Garage in Delray Beach,ÂŽ she said. ÂThey bring in a lot of guest artists and music acts and I handle their contracts. I also help these visiting artists find hotels and sometimes assist in making their travel arrangements. ItÂs part time and itÂs a nice job. My hours are my own and I can usually get my work done in a few hours.ÂŽ Ms. GardnerÂs advice to young actors starting out is to find any kind of flex-ible job that might keep their schedule free for auditions and rehearsals. ÂYou can make great money waiting tables or bartending in restaurants, for example,ÂŽ she said. ÂSalons, too, or even certain offices. These places usu-ally allow you to make your own hours, which is very important while chasing your dream.ÂŽ Lake Worth resident Bruce Linser, 48, moved to South Florida from New York in 2004 and began working as an actor almost imme-diately, performing at the Caldwell The-atre, Florida Stage, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, GableStage, Take Heed Theatre Company, Island City Stage and Palm Beach Dramaworks. In 2009, he went back to school and got his MasterÂs of Fine Arts in directing. ÂThatÂs when I started pursuing more directing work,ÂŽ he said. ÂThatÂs also when I began teaching, mostly musical theater. I was the dean of theater at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts over the last three years and have taught there for the last six. I recently left Dreyfoos to become an adjunct professor at Flor-ida Atlantic University, Lynn University and Broward College.ÂŽ Although he is also a licensed massage therapist, Mr. Linser maintained it is important to do as much performing-related work between acting and direct-ing jobs as possible. For example, he has worked as the director of music for the First Congregational Church of Lake Worth to pay the bills between gigs. ÂI play the organ and direct the choir while handling the music for all of their services,ÂŽ he said. ÂThat keeps me in the area and solvent in between theater jobs, in addition to my teaching. IÂm also playing a small role in a web series right now, for one of my students who has a production company.ÂŽ Eight-time Carbonell nominee Missy McArdle, also of Lake Worth, got a scholarship to Flor-ida Atlantic Univer-sity in 1973 and was immediately cast in the chorus of FAUÂs ÂOklahoma!,ÂŽ the first of many South Florida shows in which she would appear. Other area venues included Jan McArtÂs Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, where she got her Equity card, as well as the Delray Beach Playhouse, the Stage Company of the Palm Beaches, Florida Rep, the Jupiter Theatre (now the Maltz Jupiter Theatre) and the Plaza Theatre, among many others. Like Ms. Gardner, Ms. McArdle has made a concerted effort to find non-performing jobs within the local theater world as much as possible, working in the box office, group sales, general man-agement, marketing, stage managing, props, costumes, etc., at the Plaza The-atre, the Wick Theatre and the Dreyfoos School of the Arts. ÂI also went to work for my church as parish administrator for nine years,ÂŽ she said. ÂAnd I waited tables for three years. But IÂve always tried to keep my foot in the door in South Florida theaters. ItÂs been good to work in non-performing positions, because you get an acute sense of the jobs that are vitally necessary to the success of an arts orga-nization.ÂŽ Ms. McArdleÂs advice to theater professionals looking to pay the bills between gigs originally came from her mother. ÂLearn to type,ÂŽ she said. ÂDevelop office skills. The theater is a business. You cannot be romantic about it. My business acumen and secretarial skills have helped support me through my entire theatrical career. YouÂre going to be out of work more than youÂll have it and you must remain realistic.ÂŽ Q ACTORSFrom page 1LINSER MCARDLE

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SATURDAYS | 10-2 Riviera Beach Marina Village 200 E. 13th St., Riviera Beach SUNDAYS | 10-2 & WEDNESDAYS | 3-7 Harbourside Place 200 N. US 1, Jupiter O ering ÂA little bit of everythingÂŽ For information & Vendor inquires www.harrysmarkets.com561.623.5600 ALL MARKETS NOW OPEN executive director at Ann Norton Sculp-ture Gardens, contracted the art conser-vation firm Rosa Lowinger and Associ-ates to evaluate the sculptures. Senior conservator Kelly Ciociola surveyed nine sculptures. ÂThe way the pieces are constructed, they have an arma-ture inside made of concrete block and steel rebar. And, because South Florida is a marine environment, close to the water, these rebars began to cor-rode. As metal cor-rodes, it expands and it caused the brick to pop off. The brick is very soft and is softer than the metal, so in cases like this, the weaker of the two materials fails first,ÂŽ she said. As the steel corrodes, it actually breaks the brick from the structure ÂIn general the sculptures appear to be well constructed. Structurally, they are sound, but there is surface damage from the bars corroding,ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola said. As fees to restore each of the sculptures range from $5,000 to $37,000, the nonprofit launched its ÂRestore-a-SculptureÂŽ campaign to raise the $165,000 needed to conserve the nine sculptures at the 1.7-acre site. So far, $85,000 has been raised, allowing the restoration of three of the most endan-gered sculptures. ÂLeslie Rose, a long-time ANSG trustee, recognized that we had a number of restoration needs and gave us a lovely gift to address those needs,ÂŽ Mrs. Steele said. In April, because of his gift, work began on the 20-foot-tall ÂGateway #5,ÂŽ near the reflection pond. To date, two more sculptures have been sponsored. ÂThe Gochman family has a very strong interest in art and education,ÂŽ said Mrs. Steele. ÂWe invited them to select a sculpture for restoration and they agreed wholeheartedly to have ÂGateway #3Â restored in their name.ÂŽ ÂGateway #1ÂŽ has been restored in honor of Frances and Jeffery Fischer. ÂFrances formed the Gardens Conservancy. It was through her help that we were able to raise additional funds. The board of trustees wanted to do some-thing in her honor,ÂŽ Mrs. Steele said. It took decades for Ann Weaver Norton to achieve her dream of creating enormous sculptures. ÂThe first monumental sculpture that she created was in 1965, when she was 60,ÂŽ says Mrs. Steele. Born in Alabama in 1905, the young Ann Weaver wrote three childrenÂs books to help finance her art education. She studied at Smith College in Massa-chusetts and, in the 1930s, at the Art Stu-dents League, the National Academy of Design and Cooper Union in New York City. In addition she served as a studio assistant to the famous Russian sculptor Alexander Archipenko. Her works were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in 1935 and at the Whitney in 1940, plus she received two Carnegie Traveling Scholarships. In 1942, she was offered a position to teach sculpture at what is now the Norton Museum of Art. There, she befriended Ralph Norton and his wife, Elizabeth. In 1948, Ann married the widowed Ralph Norton, and they resid-ed in the home designed by architect Marion Sims Wyeth that is now the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden and Gallery. It was that alliance that finally allowed Ann to fulfill her dream of creating large sculptures. With these unusual works, she attained international fame and exhibitions in 1960 at the Schnei-der Gallery in Rome and, in 1976, at the Muse Rodin in Paris. She died in 1982. ÂShe was ahead of her time,ÂŽ Mrs. Steele said. ÂÂŽShe was a direct carver, but she also had engineers that helped with construction. She worked on sculptures herself and also she directed it. She was able with some of the sculptures to cre-ate a pulled movement that is totally inconsistent with brick.ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola agrees.ÂItÂs very unusual to have sculptures made out of brick, but I think that is what is very interesting about them, to see the way that the artist used this unusual sculpture material to create sculpture,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe simple fact that she is using this structural mate-rial in a very artistic way; a lot of the sculptures have curved forms and cut-outs and recesses and itÂs doing typical sculptural design with a fairly rigid material in brick.ÂŽ ÂGateway #5ÂŽ had serious issues.ÂThe rebar had corroded inside and caused some of the bricks to fail,ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola said. The team of restorers began with the basics. ÂWe started by cleaning the three sculptures, and then removed certain environmental contaminants (such as dirt and bird droppings),ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola said. ÂBecause the sculptures are situ-ated in an environment where there is lots of plant life, and it is fairly damp, and there are lots of things growing, it is perfect for biological growth, a black discoloration like mold. So we cleaned the dirt and biological growth, as well as mineral deposits caused by the sprinklers. When the water evaporates, it leaves behind minerals, which appear as white staining.ÂŽ Stabilization was next.ÂWe were working on the areas where the bricks had deteriorated. There were several large sections of loss,ÂŽ Ms. Cio-ciola said. ÂFirst we stabilized the rebar by removing an active corrosion and used a phosphoric acid solution to stop the corrosion. We coated it with a pro-prietary, heavy-duty, zinc-based solu-tion to protect it from rusting. Then we did the patching of the brick with resto-ration mortar. It is specifically designed to have the same properties as the brick around it so that it will theoretically weather and absorb water in the same manner as the surrounding materials. Everything was color matched to the existing brick and mortar.ÂŽ But corroding rebar that needed to be addressed was inside the sculptures. ÂAs we couldnÂt completely open the sculptures, we also used a migrating corrosion inhibiter overall to stabilize the steel that we couldnÂt reach,ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola said. ÂIt is applied to the sur-face and then it uses the pores to seep in and get to the steel. For masonry structures, you want them to breathe. It is how masonry is designed as a porous material, so water gets in, but it also can get out.ÂŽ Ms. Ciociola directed and also worked on the project along with her team of three trained conservation technicians who are skilled craftsmen and artists. She is the senior conservator in the Miami office, and holds a masterÂs of science degree in historic preservation with a concentration in conservation from Clemson University and the Col-lege of Charleston. The principal of her firm, Rosa Lowinger, has offices in Miami and Los Angeles. They work all over the United States and the Carib-bean, specializing in marine environ-ments. Regular maintenance is key for any of these outdoor sculptures because it allows you to prevent problems before they happen. ÂIf you are maintaining the sculptures regularly and keeping an eye on them, you can see any sort of telltale signs that would need to be caught in order to protect the piece,ÂŽ Ms. Cio-ciola said. ÂKeeping it clean, for one thing. The example that I like to use is if you leave dirt on the surface and it gets into a mortar joint and then eventually you have plant life growing out of it. Well, the roots take up space so they will deteriorate the joint and eventually the brick. But if you clean that off the surface before it gets to be a plant then the plants never take root and damage the mortar.ÂŽ The restoration of the first three sculptures was completed in about three months. Now, with six more to restore, the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is hoping that art and culture lovers in the community will step forward to help. ÂWe are very grateful for the generosity of our supporters as they have enabled us to move forward on this critical art conservation effort,ÂŽ Mrs. Steele said.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY PUZZLE ANSWERS FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE WeÂ’ll drink to that: AaronÂ’s Table plans wall of wine bottles jan NORRISjan@jannorris.com Aaron Fuller of the coming-soon AaronÂs Table and Wine Bar in Abacoa is planning to build a wall. Unlike his current boss, Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago he is asking neighbors and friends Â„ not Mexi-co Â„ to help with it. It wonÂt keep anyone out of any-where Â„ it will be a design element in the new restaurant that replaces RooneyÂs Public House closed for two years, in the Jupiter development. ÂYes,ÂŽ he said, laughing. ÂWeÂre planning a wall made of 1,200 empty wine bottles. ThereÂs no way we can drink that many bottles, so we asked our friends to drop theirs off.ÂŽ Mr. Fuller, currently the food and beverage director at Mar-a-Lago, Mr. TrumpÂs residence and club in Palm Beach, is partnering with chef Marc Cela to open AaronÂs Table, an American wine bar and restaurant, with a target date of October 15. ÂWeÂre at the tail end of everything being finished,ÂŽ he said. They are hop-ing the opening might be Oct. 1, but theyÂre banking on mid-October at the latest. The menu is a Âcommon sense approach to food,ÂŽ Mr. Fuller said. ÂThe dishes arenÂt heavy on garnishes. TheyÂll be based on a lot of my experiences.ÂŽ With 20 years of kitchen and food and beverage positions in places such as Maui, Las Vegas and several years in Palm Beach, heÂll incorporate flavors from all realms with a modern touch, working with the chef. A lot of Mr. FullerÂs time was spent at The Breakers opening the Italian restaurant on the property, and work-ing his way up the ranks to the head sous position in the resortÂs previous acclaimed haute res-taurant, LÂEscalier ÂThe menu will be full of braising dishes Â„ they are my favor-ite to cook,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut weÂll have the ahi tuna poke as I did in Maui, and truffle ravioli with caviar Â„ from Palm Beach. Doing a lot of things we know we can do well.ÂŽ Other dishes proposed include pork belly with Thai peanut brittle, tamarind and cilantro; house made charcuterie; and a tableside baked Alaska. The team also will pair up with the neighboring craft brewery, Civil Society and use its beer in an IPA-braised lamb shank, with truffled whipped pota-toes, caramelized fennel and cherry tomatoes with a natural IPA jus. ÂWe wanted to elevate the food, but keep prices reasonable for families, too. I want a place to go out for a date night with my wife, and a place I can go with the family for a Sunday brunch.ÂŽ ItÂs central to the neighborhood next to Roger Dean Stadium and an agedmeat prime burger and bar foods also will be highlights. He expects his neigh-bors to be frequent guests. ÂThereÂs really not much up here thatÂs not on the water. Not in the neighborhoods, anyway,ÂŽ he said. A major injection of money has gone into the plaza, Mr. Fuller said. ÂThe holding company who bought it is putting $21 million into it. TheyÂre putting in a bowling alley, a movie theater, theyÂre building a golf course. TheyÂve painted the buildings Â„ they really needed it. ThereÂs still land-scaping to be done. The new owner said he wanted a chef-driven restau-rant here, so thatÂs what weÂre bringing them.ÂŽ He describes the interior of the new place as Âfarmhouse chic.ÂŽ ÂWeÂve kept the bar from the old RooneyÂs; we wanted to keep the history RooneyÂs brought with them. But weÂre changing the bar top to a pewter zinc alloy. It looks like aluminum to start, but as it ages will have a bronze look.ÂŽ It matches the natural wood colors on walls and floors. The front room is called The Cellar. In it will be AaronÂs Table Â„ the chefÂs table. Walls to the outside will be floor-to-ceiling wine bottles Â„ hence the call for empty wine bottles from all his friends on Facebook. ÂWe figure we need 1,200 to fill the whole room. TheyÂve already started dropping them off. Empties Â„ oh, yes!ÂŽ he said. Some friends have brought in signed bottles, or with dates on them telling what occasion they celebrated. ÂSome have put notes in them, wishing us luck Â„ thatÂs really nice.ÂŽ Anyone who wishes to contribute to AaronÂs Table dcor is welcome to drop off their empty wine bottles Mon-day through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the restaurant: 1153 Town Center Drive, Abacoa, Jupiter. In brief Che is now open on the water in Delray Beach on Atlantic Avenue. Based in Spain with 15 locations there, this is its first U.S. restaurant.

This is the 11th annual Moon Festival Â„ sometimes called the Mid-Autumn Fes-tival Â„ which brings family and friends together to celebrate the bounty of the harvest season. Experts say the Chinese have been celebrating the Moon Festival since 1000 B.C. with art, entertainment, food, and crafts celebrating Chinese art and culture. This yearÂs festival is from noon to 5 p.m. Sept. 17. Festival highlights include a Chinese painting demonstration by painter Liu Nan, a ceramic demonstra-tion by artist Lauren Shapiro, and the ÂcuratorÂs conversationÂŽ at 12:30 and 2:45 p.m. featuring Laurie Barnes, curator of Chinese Art, who will discuss the NortonÂs newly acquired Ming dynasty-era glazed, stoneware panels, expanding the NortonÂs world-class collection of Chinese art. Another highlight of this yearÂs festival will likely be the performances by mem-bers of FSUÂs Chinese Music Ensemble, led by Haiqiong Deng. Deng, a performer in prior years, returns with half a dozen friends who will perform holiday-related music on a range of exotic Chinese instru-ments. Free tickets for the concert are available beginning at 2:15 p.m. for the 3:15 p.m. concert. Tickets are first-come, first-served with a limit of four tickets per per-son. An afternoon full of activities including spotlight talks, a DIY art activity, and a Chil-drenÂs Introduction to Chinese Music, closes with a reception featuring green tea and traditional Chi-nese mooncakes, another authentic Chi-nese custom rich with meaning.

Q Â„ Scott Simmons Aft er making sure every dessert leaving the kitchen looks precisely the way it should and before walking out to chit-chat with customers, Pastry Chef Robin Gross treats herself to a few moments of blissful observation at the Grilled Cheese Gallery. She watches diners consum-ing their lunches (often grilled cheese sandwiches Â„ but soups and salads are available, too) and the desserts she so lovingly prepared for them. ÂI love standing at the register and looking out to see customers from every walk of life, old or young, from a variety of places, enjoying their sandwiches or desserts,ÂŽ she said. ÂEverybody looks so happy.ÂŽ The vision warms her heart.The Grilled Cheese Gallery opened almost a year ago and is co-owned by Jeffrey Thompson and Chef Gross. Chef Thompson previously had a restaurant in Old Northwood called O-BO. Chef Gross was pastry chef there. The Grilled Cheese Gallery quickly outgrew a smaller space. ÂIt immediately took on a life of its own,ÂŽ Chef Gross said. So they moved to a larger location, at 422 Northwood Road in West Palm Beach. ÂWe have people coming from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Port St. Lucie, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter and visitors from all over the world referred here through hotels. ThereÂs a good local following, too.ÂŽ In fact, the restaurant has become so popular that the owners are looking for places to expand in Jupiter and Delray. ÂThe Grilled Cheese Gallery is a happy place with an upbeat staff,ÂŽ she said. Motown music plays in the background and the restaurantÂs signature unicorn can be spotted here and there, including on her pink sugar cookies. Grilled cheese sandwiches of various varieties, includ-ing daily specials, are the heart of the menu. Soups, salads and a few varieties of poutine (fries with cheese curds and gravy) also are offered. And then there are the desserts, starting with bread pudding (an old family recipe, Chef Gross said), salted caramel bars and fudge brownies. Over-the-top soft-serve ice cream cones with the fun toppings. The soft serve is locally made in small batches. Desserts have creative names such as A Day at the Circus (cotton candy cup-cake) or The Caramel Blonde (soft-serve ice cream cone with a caramel bar). Chef Gross doesnÂt have a favorite.ÂI like to experiment,ÂŽ she said. ÂAnything we do with salted caramel or choc-olate seems to be a big success.ÂŽ Each new recipe withstands her trusty team of tasters. ÂI have a pretty good group of tasters,ÂŽ she said ÂBut they have to be honest.ÂŽ Chef Gross didnÂt begin her career in baking. She was a school teacher with a degree from the University of Florida who went on to get a masterÂs degree in school counseling from Johns Hopkins University. ÂI found that giving somebody a brownie is a lot easier than therapy,ÂŽ she said. ÂA brownie always brings a smile.ÂŽ Before becoming a pastry chef and working with Chef Thompson, she had her own bakery catering business, Rob-inÂs Nests Baked Goods.

Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs to produce hormones, vitamin D and substances to help digest food. But if you eat foods that are high in cholesterol, it can build up inside blood vessels and slow down or block blood flow, which could cause a heart attack or stroke.

Is your weight getting in the way? W eight gain is a frequent complaint from patients and is an ongoing lifetime struggle. Obesity is a rising epidemic in our country. In the United States, it is estimat-ed that 93 million Americans are affected by obesity and almost 112,000 annual deaths are attributable to obesity. Indi-viduals affected by obesity are at a higher risk for impaired mobility and experience a negative social stigma commonly asso-ciated with obesity. Being affected by excess weight, obesity or morbid obesity significantly increases the risk of developing many other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis and much more. Unlike diabetes and hyper-tension, obesity can-not hide from those around you. Weight management is a partner-ship between the patient, their family and the healthcare team. This partnership is one that is developed on an individual basis with each patient. Management of obesity includes diet, exercise, behavior modi-fication and nutritional counseling. In most cases, medications for weight-loss (pharmacotherapy), supervised very-low calorie diets, structured meal plans and injectable vitamins like B12 are pre-scribed. Most people have little or no side effects. Getting a handle on eating behaviors is key to making a significant long-term change. While no one likes to keep food logs that require writing down all food eaten, this exercise has been shown to be important for long-term success. With all the variation in serving sizes, most individuals do not have a good under-standing of how many calories are actu-ally consumed in one day. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals keep a complete food log. This will also help the providers to get a better handle on areas of the diet to focus on at follow-up visits. The current weight-loss model as patients and providers know it, needs to be reversed. With pharmacotherapy as the core and foundation, then diet, exer-cise and behavioral modification as essen-tial adjuncts. Once a desirable weight is achieved, a maintenance program needs to be continued using pharmacotherapy, diet, exercise and behavior modification. The medications suppress appetite, con-trol cravings, improve insulin sensitivity and lower the metabolic set point. One particular method of weight loss using medications is with the use of prescription hCG. This also can be com-bined with lipotropic (fat burning) and B12 injections. Patients can lose up to 20 pounds in 20 days or 40 pounds in 40 days. Many studies have shown that accountability is one of the major factors influencing the ability of individuals to maintain long-term weight loss. Obesity is not a disease thatÂs conquered in a day, month or year. It is a disease that must be fought every day for the rest of oneÂs life. Weekly weigh-ins are a useful tool to hold individuals accountable. Just knowing there will be a weekly weigh-in decreases caloric consumption. Other options for weight loss under the supervision of a health care pro-vider is The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method. It is a medically designed pro-tocol containing two key components Â„ weight loss and a healthier lifestyle education to assist you in maintaining your results after dieting. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is learning to live off of the bodyÂs own fat reserves. First the body depletes its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and then turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. Do you think you have a slow metabolism? Do you have trouble losing weight no matter what you do? Do you feel like your weight is getting in the way of your relationship, job and quality of life? Medically supervised weight loss is easier, faster and safer than standard diets because you are under the care of a physician throughout the course of your treatment.

Setting the Gold Standard in Orthopedic Care 3360 Burns Road Â€ Palm Beach Gardens Â€ pbgmc.com Validation Therapy for AlzheimerÂ’s disease V alidation Therapy is a power-ful method for communicating with people who have Alzheim-erÂs disease or similar types of dementia. The idea behind Validation Therapy is to understand and respect the way reality seems to the person who has dementia. This means Âstepping into their world,ÂŽ and trying to help within that framework. Validation therapy can reduce anxiety, enhance self-esteem and avoid confrontation. This approach con-trasts sharply with attempts to ÂcorrectÂŽ the person or Âorient them to reality.ÂŽ The difference is best seen through a few examples. Example 1: Margaret is 97 years old. She is calling out for her mother and seems upset and sad. She wants to talk to her mother on the phone. Although Mar-garetÂs mother passed away more than 30 years ago, correcting Margaret by telling her that her moth-er is dead is not a good approach. In MargaretÂs mind, Margaret is decades younger and her mother is still alive, and Margaret is experiencing an intense feeling of missing her mother. Telling her that her mother died might be shocking to Mar-garet and she might experience the grief of losing a parent all over again. Validation Therapy starts with empathy by recognizing MargaretÂs feeling of missing her mother and tries to make Margaret feel better within the frame-work of MargaretÂs reality. Instead of challenging MargaretÂs belief that her mother is alive, we engage Margaret in conversation about her mother. ÂTell me about your mother.ÂŽ ÂWhere did she grow up?ÂŽ ÂTell me some of your favor-ite things you do with your mother.ÂŽ This validates MargaretÂs feelings about her mother and helps her express them. Once this occurs, it should be much easier to gently redirect Margaret. ÂOh, I see its almost time for lunch. IÂm starved. Would you like to join me?ÂŽ Example 2: George is in his mid80s. He is pacing nervously around the home he has lived in for the past 20 years, and repeating ÂI want to go homeÂŽ with increasing urgency. It might seem natural to respond by saying ÂBut, George. This IS your homeÂŽ and to try to convince George by pointing to his favorite easy chair, photos of George on the coffee table, and other things that should be recognizable to George. But this approach is unlikely to convince George he is home, and might escalate into an argument or even an elopement. Validation Therapy starts by acknowledging GeorgeÂs feeling of discomfort of not feeling like he is at home. In GeorgeÂs reality, ÂhomeÂŽ could be the place where he lived as a child or as a young adult; and the place he is now is nothing like that. By targeting GeorgeÂs feelings, we might be able to find the source of his discomfort. We can ask questions about GeorgeÂs home. ÂTell me about your home.ÂŽ ÂWhat is your favorite room?ÂŽ ÂWho lives in your home with you?ÂŽ Once George express-es his feelings about his home, and we understand how he is perceiving things, it should be easier to redirect George from his urgent need to leave. Alterna-tively, it might be that George needs to use the bathroom but canÂt articulate it Â„ ÂI want to go homeÂŽ could mean ÂI want to find the bathroom.ÂŽ We need to find the underlying cause of GeorgeÂs discomfort rather than correct him. These are just a few illustrations of Validation Therapy in action. There are countless other scenarios where adopt-ing this approach can make all the differ-ence between a calm, successful resolu-tion and an escalated confrontation. Not every situation is easy to so lve, and it is important to be creative and flexible. The key is to accept the reality that the person with dementia is perceiving and find a solution within that framework. Validation Therapy was created in the 1960s by Naomi Field, a social worker who worked extensively with dementia patients. Today, it enjoys wide acceptance by experts in the field. Even law enforcement organizations are now teaching Validation Therapy to their officers as a means of de-escalating situ-ations where they encounter a person with dementia. We have a wonderful local organization called AlzheimerÂs Community Care, which is working with the Palm Beach County SheriffÂs Department to help them utilize Valida-tion Therapy. At Visiting Angels, we test all caregiver candidates to see if they understand the principles of Validation Therapy. We pose various hypotheticals and to see if they can find the right approach, and we ask them to role play so we can see how they perform. Only then do we allow them to work with clients who have dementia. Q Irv Seldin President, Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2016 healthy living C5 When sex is painful, there are some effective treatments M any women come into the office seeking help due to painful intercourse. The com-plaint may be part of a number of issues involving problems with the bladder, bowel, or vaginal discomfort. Many times they will have been treated for infections or other conditions without success. Pain during sex may have a number of causes, and it is not uncommon to see more than one prob-lem leading to the symptom. For menopausal women, low hormone levels take on average four to six years to begin to create signifi-cant problems with vaginal dryness and thinning of the tis-sues. This can lead to abnormal bacte-rial overgrowth in the vagina, which further irritates the delicate tissues. Treatment of atrophy and the changed environ-ment is important in addressing this problem. Vaginal estrogens, Osphe-na, or laser therapy (MonaLisaTouch) may be effective to treat this problem. In addition, pelvic muscle spasms can be a significant and fairly common (but nearly unknown) cause of painful sex. Normally, the muscles in the pelvis are silent, and we are unaware of them. However, certain activities or trauma may lead to spasm of these muscles, which can cause a myriad of symptoms, from frequent urges to urinate, painful urination, or difficulty urinating, to dif-ficulty with bowel movements and pain with intercourse or lower abdominal pain. Identifying this problem is vital in order to obtain relief. Appropriate treatment is aimed at relieving the mus-cle spasms through physical therapy and modification of activities. We have many skeptical patients who return from a course of physical therapy with joy after finally obtaining relief from their symptoms. There are other causes of painful intercourse that should be considered and either confirmed or eliminated as possible causes. These conditions include interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, neuropathy, adhesions (scar tissue), and unusual infections, among other less common conditions. When symptoms do not resolve with a simple and straightforward treatment, proper diagnosis is the key to success.

I tÂs true, varicose and spider veins are more prevalent in women, but men suffer from them, too. Gener-ally, because men cover up, and are less concerned by the appearance of their legs, they may wait longer to have varicose vein treatments. This means that men tend to have more advanced venous disease with larger, bluish rope-like veins. Early diagnosis and treatment is a step in the right direction. Men also may have more little red spider veins on the face and nose, which are easily and effectively treated at Palm Beach Cardiovascular with VeinwaveÂ’, a lead-ing edge, minimally invasive new treat-ment. Varicose veins are a progressive venous disease and should not be ignored. The treatment options are the same for men and women. Both should have a complete diagnostic ultrasound to determine the cause of the problem and consult with their cardiovascular specialists to determine the most effective treatment options. Today, there are many mini-mally invasive treatments available from Laser vein ablation, radiofrequency vein ablation, ambulatory phlebotomy, sclerotherapy and VeinwaveÂ’. Varicose veins are caused by weakened vein valves and veins in the legs and ankles. Normally, one-way valves in veins keep blood flowing up toward the heart from the legs. When these valves stop work properly, blood collects and pools in the legs. The veins become weak, large, and twisted. This results in venous insufficiency with the attendant symptoms of fatigue, swelling, throb-bing, itching, heaviness and achy legs. Varicose veins are a progressive disease, which means, without proper treatment, varicose veins can worsen over time. In some cases, if varicose veins are left untreated, serious complications such as phlebitis (inflammation of the veins), skin ulcers and blood clots may result. The board-certified physicians at Palm Beach Cardiovascular Vein Center are dedicated to diagnosing the cause and treating venous insufficiency effec-tively. Using the latest, minimally inva-sive techniques Richard S. Faro, MD, FACS, and Joseph Motta, MD, FACS, have perfected the relatively pain-free, highly effective techniques that require little or no recovery time. The lat-est treatments include VNUS Radio-frequency Closure, sclerotherapy, laser treatments and VeinwaveÂ’. All of these procedures are performed at their prac-tice in their comfortable Palm Beach Gardens offices. From 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 24, the doctors are offering a consultation to evalu-ate the health of new patientsÂ venous systems. To make an appointment for this event, please call (561) 626-9801.

One such spice, turmeric, is effective in helping a number of medical conditions. Turmeric has been used for more than 5,000 years as a spice and as an anti-inflammatory medication. It originated in India, and contains curcumin, which adds to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is a member of the ginger family. ÂTurmeric works like a COX-2 inhibitor Â„ like Celebrex, but with fewer side effects,ÂŽ says family medicine physi-cian Victoria Yorke, M.D. ÂIt reduces pain and inflammation and inhibits the growth of many types of cancer.ÂŽ The spice has other health properties:Q Decreases amyloid plaques in the brain.Q Decreases risk of AlzheimerÂs disease and helps decrease progression of the dis-ease.Q Decreases the number and size of colon polyps.Q Helps irritable bowel syndrome.Q Helps psoriasis.Q Decreases joint pain of rheumatoid arthritis.Q Decreases inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis and CrohnÂs. ÂTurmeric can be added to many foods, including soups, pasta and sandwiches,ÂŽ Dr. Yorke says. ÂAdding pepper helps the tur-meric absorb into the bloodstream. Plain turmeric is better for inflammation in the bowel, such as ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome.ÂŽ Tumeric has a warm, slightly bitter taste and is used in curry powders, mustards and butter s; and to add flavor to cheese. Turmeric is also available as a supplement. ÂIf using it as a supplement, check the label for the addition of piperine if you plan to use it for memory, cancer reduction or arthritis,ÂŽ Dr. Yorke says. Q Aid for Arthritis Arthritis affects almost 50 percent of Americans age 65 and older. While there is no cure, patients can increase their level of comfort and decrease their pain with the help of natural aids: Â Turmeric, ginger, cayenne and garlic help reduce in ammation. Â Physical activity decreases pain and increases endorphins and naturally occurring opiates; and decreases weight. Â Biofeedback, acupuncture and body work (massage, biofeedback) relieve pain.
C8 healthy living SEPTEMBER 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFentanyl-related overdose deaths skyrocket in Florida since 2010 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA HEALTHFlorida has seen a sharp increase in fentanyl-related overdose deaths over the past five years, according to UF Health researchers who co-authored a Centers for Disease Control and Preven-tion report released Aug. 25. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, and it is available via prescription to treat surgical, cancer-related and chronic pain. However, the deaths appear to stem from illicitly manufactured fentanyl, which is manufactured in clandestine laboratories and is often mixed with other drugs, such as heroin, without buyersÂ knowledge. According to the CDCÂs Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, Florida is one of eight states of the 27 analyzed that saw substantial increases, especially among people ages 14-34, followed by people ages 35-50, males and whites. From 2010-2012 to 2013-2014, the total number of people in Florida who died from fentan-yl-related overdoses increased from 379 to 582, and the number of people ages 14-34 increased from 82 to 200. The first half of 2015 is on track to far surpass the previous four years with 289 deaths statewide from January to June 2015, which is the most recent data available. Both fentanyl-related deaths and the number of drug submissions that tested positive for fentanyl followed a similar overall pattern in Florida, with gradu-al increases from May-November 2014 and a sharp increase during December 2014-February 2015, followed by a return to rates seen between July-November 2014 during March-June 2015. The drug submissions are sent by law enforce-ment nationwide to the National Foren-sic Laboratory Information System for testing. Researchers believe the strong correlation between the fentanyl-related deaths and the drug submissions that tested positive for fentanyl indicates that the latter could serve as an early warn-ing system; however, more research is needed to understand the reasons behind the fluctuations from 2014-2015. Florida prescription rates for fentanyl remained relatively stable at a 5 percent increase during this period, indicating that the deaths are likely driven by illic-itly manufactured fentanyl. The largest impact is on people who use heroin and cocaine, which is being mixed with fentanyl. In fact, fentanyl-related deaths that tested positive for heroin increased from 0 to 19 percent between 2010-2012 and 2013-2014 and those that tested posi-tive for cocaine increased from 17 to 33 percent. ÂWhat this analysis shows us is that the types of people who are dying from fentanyl overdoses are similar to those dying from heroin in the U.S. Many young people dying from these dangerous drug cocktails may not even real-ize that they are being exposed to this potent opioid,ÂŽ said Chris Delcher, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the department of health o utcomes and policy in the UF College of Medicine. ÂA great deal of attention has been placed on reduc-ing medical sources of prescription pain medications. In this case, we noted that increases in fentanyl prescribing could not explain the sharp increases in fentanyl-related deaths. Understanding and detecting illegal manufacturing of fentanyl is key, and public health and law enforcement officials need to work together to deal with this problem.ÂŽ The report also recommends enhancing public health support for individuals using heroin, including increased access to both medication-assisted treatment and naloxone, which nullifies the effect of opioid medication and can prevent overdose deaths. ÂIt is important to note that these numbers are underestimated because not all subjects are tested for fentanyl, and further, laboratories cannot distin-guish prescription fentanyl from illic-itly manufactured fentanyl,ÂŽ said Bruce Goldberger, Ph.D., a professor and direc-tor of toxicology in the department of pathology, immunology and laboratory medicine in the UF College of Medicine. ÂWe must improve fentanyl death sur-veillance nationwide in order to make that distinction and alert us more quickly to these serious public health trends.ÂŽ Q Number of Number of Percentage Increase Fentanyl-related Fentanyl-related in Deaths Overdose Deaths Overdose Deaths (from 2010-2012 (2010-2012) (2013-2014) to 2013-2014)*Statewide Total 379 582 53.6 percentAge 14-34 82 200 143.9 percent Age 35-50 147 235 59.9 percent Males 216 393 81.9 percent The percentage increase is comparing three years of data to two years of data, which underestimates the percent change. For a complete demographic breakdown, see the CDCÂs full report at cdc.gov/mmwr. between the two kinds of cholesterol. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) carry cholesterol in the bloodstream and can build up in the arteries causing heart disease, and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) carry cholesterol back to the liver to remove it from the body. Ide-ally, you want to have high HDL levels and low LDL levels. A simple blood test can tell you if your total cholesterol is less than 200 mg/dL (milligrams of cholesterol per deciliter of blood), which is desirable. If that number is over 240 mg/dL, you have high cholesterol. An optimal LDL level is less than 100 mg/dL, while anything over 190 mg/dL is considered very high. An HDL level less than 40 mg/dL is a major risk factor for heart disease, and any number above 60 mg/dL is considered protective against heart disease. Cholesterol levels in the blood can be affected by your diet, weight, exer-cise, heredity, age and gender. You can-not control all these factors, but you can make certain lifestyle changes to help lower your cholesterol, such as not smoking, being physically active, maintaining a healthy weight and not drinking excessively. Your doctor may also prescribe certain medications to bring your cholesterol under control, which should be taken while following healthy lifestyle choices. A healthy diet will play an important role in helping to lower cholesterol. You should limit high-fat foods such as: Â€ Whole milk, cream and ice creamÂ€ Butte r, egg yolks and cheese Â€ Solid fats and saturated oils including coconut oil and palm oil Â€ Fried foodInstead, eat foods that are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, including: Â€ Fruits and vegetablesÂ€ Fat-free and low-fat dairy productsÂ€ Lean meat and poultry without skinÂ€ Unsaturated vegetable oils, like canola, corn, olive or safflower oil Monitoring your cholesterol can help you manage it and lead to the early detection of heart disease and other conditions. Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center offers free heart healthy screenings every second Wednesday of the month from 8 to 11 a.m. The screenings serve as heart attack risk assess-ments and include glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index checks.

MaryÂs Medical Center and the Palm Beach ChildrenÂs Hos-pital honored four outstanding employees at their quarterly awards ceremony. CEO Gabrielle Fin-ley-Hazle presented the winners with special plaques in appreciation of their hard work and dedication. Brad Bedient, chief energy specialist in the hospitalsÂ plant operations department, was named Employee of the Quarter for his ability to analyze a situation and make a logical decision using patient care as his driving force. Joyce Querido, ICU RN, was recognized as Nurse of the Quarter for consistently displaying a positive, caring attitude. Mary Tipping, PICU assistant nurse manager, was honored as Developing Leader for being a team player and touching the hearts of many patients and families. Erynne Herzog, NICU volunteer, was designated as Volunteer of the Quarter for her creativity and compassion. She made special hearts that go back and forth between mothers and newborns, so that the babies can have something with their motherÂs smell on it, which helps with bonding as well as breast-feeding. The hearts became so popular that Ms. Herzog had to recruit more volunteers to help her meet the growing demand.

Alessandra Coln has joined Papa Chiropractic & Physical Therapy as clinical director. Dr. Coln has a deep compassion for those seeking improved health and wellness fueled by personal experi-ence. At 14, Dr. Coln was diagnosed with Stage 4 HodgkinÂs Lymphoma can-cer. After doctors gave her a 25 percent chance to live, she underwent advanced chemotherapy and radiation leading her to remission. Surviving her greatest struggle powered her love of health and life. ÂLooking back it dawned on me that I had gained so much more than grow-ing my hair back,ÂŽ she says. ÂBeating cancer gave me the push to become more knowledgeable about the human body, nutrition and natural prevention of disease.ÂŽ After graduating from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Sci-ence, Dr. ColnÂs devotion led her to pursue her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Daytona Beach. At Palmer, she was chal-lenged and instructed by leading profes-sionals in the field, and augmented her skill set with proficiencies in sports therapy, rehabilitation, internal medi-cine and nutritional guidance. During her studies, Dr. Colon wanted to both test her abilities further as well as reach out to a global community. Between 2010 and 2012, she traveled to the Grenadines, the Dominican Republic and India offering free chiropractic care to more than 4,000 people. Her com-mitment to promoting optimal health and well-being has been integral in free-ing people from pain and increasing her patientsÂ whole body performance ever since. Her journey did not end there. After spending years running marathons alongside her mother and brother in the fight against cancer, she was nominated to campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. After 10 weeks she raised more than $60,000 and was crowned the 2015 Woman of The Year. As for her practice, Dr. Coln uses a Âwhole person approach.ÂŽ This approach to wellness involves discovering the root causes of pathol-ogy or dysfunction, and making inter-ventions and lifestyle adjustments that optimize oneÂs ability to function within a day to day life. She looks to the spine when evaluating a patientÂs entire body and treats accordingly, as she under-stands that complete health relies heav-ily on how body parts affect each other biomechanically. Using this unique sys-tem, Dr. Coln helps her patients accel-erate and maintain their journey to good health. ÂDonÂt restrict your practice to the musculoskeletal; itÂs much more than that,ÂŽ she says. ÂThere is nothing better than allowing your body to heal itself.ÂŽ For more information, call 2965952 or visit chiropractorspalmbeachgar-dens.com. Q DR. COL"N
