The Womens March on the nations capital is taking shape, the result of a grassroots campaign to rally in sup-port of womens rights. The event is scheduled Jan. 21, the day after Trumps inauguration. It isnt billed as an anti-Trump protest. Rather, the organizers say its aim is to send a message to all levels of government that participants expect elected leaders to act to pro-tect the rights of women, their families, and their communities.Ž Organizers think the march will be the largest demonstration associated with Trumps inauguration, a robust dissent opposing the normalization of the transfer of power to a man anti-thetical to American and democratic values. Trump lost the popular vote by a wide margin and the march is to remind him he doesnt have a mandate to undo what it has taken more than 200 years to achieve. The breadth is stunning of those whom Trump has threatened, demon-ized and insulted on his way to the White House. He has proven himself to be an equal opportunity bigot. The march is expected to draw Americans of every stripe and hue. Among those Trump has bullied, women hold a special place in his jaded heart. They have borne his scorn, disrespect and sexual predations. The very idea of such a man occupying the Oval Office undermines the historic commitment to gender equity women have fought to achieve since the earli-est days of the republic. Gender equity is the bridge uniting women and men in common cause across multiple issues. As for women, Trumps election is a stunning reversal of fortune and threat to womens rights. Ironically, it was enabled by the 42 percent of women and the 53 percent of white women who voted for the man. All those women who said they wouldnt vote for Hillary just because she was a woman? They didnt. Instead of a woman breaking the glass ceiling and winning the White House, feminists saw America elect a misogynist and self-proclaimed sexual predator. It was a shocker. All the myths of womens solidarity on behalf of pro-tecting and supporting gender equali ty went down the toilet. Women voted for Trump despite his racism, sexism and misogyny. They have immolated on the pyre of the mans imagined supe-riority to prove they could. Time will tell if they will live to regret it. Their daughters will be the ones to tell them. Meanwhile, women supporting T rump will sign up for the after-party. But at least 100,000 of their sisters will be in the streets instead. It is only natural that a woman was the catalyst for the march. Like many others, Trumps election was a bridge too far for Rebecca Shook. She could not accept that a man like him could ascend to the Oval Office. The retired lawyer and grandmother said in an interview with Reuters, "I was in such shock and disbelief that this type of sentiment could win. We had to let people know that is not who [we] are.Ž With her friends help, she created an events page on Facebook proposing a womens march on Washington dur-ing Trumps inauguration. Then, she called it a day and took her dismay to bed. Within 24 hours, 10,000 people signed up. The idea snowballed nationwide. It encountered speed bumps along the way. The diversity of the marchs ini-tial leadership was challenged. Others accused the organizers of appropriat-ing for their own use the historic move-ment of African-American women to win racial equality for their sex. Its a sore point. Issues of race and racism within the Womens Move-ment are old as the movement itself. They stem from the failure of white women to actualize common cause with women of color in their fight for racial justice. The goal is essential to both causes. In my experience, race and gender discrimination share context in mat-ters of oppression. One is never pres-ent without the existence of the other though they manifest themselves dif-ferently. And both forms are insepa-rable in their consequence. They foreclose and deny its victims of a lifetime of opportunities based on the accidentŽ of ones birth. It is a disparagement of possibilities with-out end and an assignment of worth without exit. The class division among those who suffer systemic discrimina-tion reflects how society splits the hairs. The march organizers have since taken pains to course-correct. Doz-ens of organizations are signed on as partners. A thousand buses will bring participants to Washington. originating from at least forty-one states. In Florida, coordinators have formed a statewide network and multiple local chapters to help manage the logistics and activities. They expect to draw up to 20,000 participants from Florida. Sister demonstrations also are being held in Florida statewide. Susan B. Anthony once said, You would better educate 10 women into the practice of liberal principles than to organize a thousand on a platform of intolerance and bigotry.Ž Women may have helped elect Trump, but the women who didnt will hold him accountable.

Roosevelt „ the most trans-formational president of the 20th cen-tury and one of our greatest presidents. It referred partly to the Great Recession awaiting Obama, as Roos-evelt faced the Great Depression. But it also recalled Obamas stated wish to likewise be transformational. Roosevelt gave the federal government a needed mission to pursue social and economic justice and Obama surely knew he couldnt equal that impact. But how should we evaluate Obama? And was he, in his own way, transforma-tional? Certainly, his two elections as our first African-American president trans-formed a country where racial dis-crimination and worse have festered for centuries. While the Republican candi-dates in 2008 and 2012 won a majority of white, non-Hispanic voters, Obamas victories reflected substantial white support. Even after Donald Trumps election, Obamas approval rating was 57 percent. Bigotry clearly is not dead. Some critics persistently attacked Obama on bla-tantly racist grounds. Yet racially this country can never be what it was before 2008. A threshold has been crossed. Four overarching concepts guided Obamas presidency. One was inclusion „ giving those at the economic or social margins the full benefits and opportunities our country offers, and fighting entrenched preju-dices that perpetuated exclusions and injustices. This was achieved through greater access to health care, expansion of LGBT rights, equal pay for women, frank and sensitive talk about race and compassionate treatment of illegal immigrants. A second concept was rationality „ discarding failed emotionally based policies and heeding rather than deny-ing objective science. We saw this in the deal to curb Irans nuclear pro-gram, renewed relations with Cuba and efforts against climate change. A third hallmark was caution in foreign affairs „ thinking prudently instead of rushing into dangerously complex situations with unknown con-sequences. Obama could take a carefully considered risk, such as the raid against Osama bin Laden. But he didnt commit ground troops in Libya and against ISIS, refused to bomb Irans nuclear facilities and responded judiciously to Russias interference in Ukraine. And a fourth principle was recovery from the devastating recession. For that, Obama obtained a massive stimulus, rescued the auto industry and gained Wall Street regulation. These concepts may appear to be obvious precepts. But turning them into policies and laws threatened powerful interests and provoked viru-lent rage. The passions Obama aroused showed he was confronting matters of deep substance. There were inevitable shortcomings. Obama realized too late that congressio-nal Republicans would always oppose him. He didnt properly sell the Afford-able Care Act to skeptics. While he got Syria to relinquish chemical weapons, he caused confusion by not enforc-ing his declared red line.Ž He bombed ISIS but initially underestimated it as the JV team.Ž He should have pushed immigration reform when Democrats controlled Congress. Ending our capa-bility for manned space launches was regressive. And our stronger economy didnt reach everyone. Yet Obamas successes far outweighed his mistakes. And some suc-cesses, to bring in those who had been left out, were inspiring. In several ways, Obama was reminiscent of John F. Kennedy, another ground breaker as our first (and so far only) Catholic president „ elo-quent, pragmatic and coolly intellec-tual, a president with a sense of history and sense of humor. As JFK, Obama projected a politically potent charisma. He embodied supporters ideals, although he was, in Kennedys self-description, an ideal-ist without illusions.Ž It may take decades to know how much Obama was transformational. While reverses could occur during the Trump administration, Obama laid a foundation that others can build on in progressive times. Our advances can be halted and even set back, but we can never completely revert to the past. Too much has been put in motion, too many hopes have been ignited, and too many words have been said and heard and believed. Barack Obama made his country, our country, a better place. Q „ Roger Buckwalter of Tequesta is a retired editorial page editor of The Jupiter Courier.The reset failurePresident Barack Obama has finally had it with Russia. It only took eight years of cold reality „ topped off by the Russian interference in the Novem-ber election „ to make the outgoing president almost clear-eyed about the Kremlin. Not that Obama is ready to admit error. Asked by George Stephanopou-los if he underestimated Vladimir Putin, Obama said no, he had only missed how cyber hacking could be used to meddle in our electoral system „ in other words, it was a technical mistake, rath-er than a fundamental misassessment of a foreign adversary. Perhaps the president can be forgiven for not being more forthright, since it would require acknowledging how spectacularly his reset failed. President Obama began his term with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presenting her Russian counterpart with a (mistrans-lated) reset button, and ended it watching the Kremlin target Hillary Clintons party and campaign team with no evident respect for U.S. sovereignty or fear of U.S. retaliation. The reset was premised on willful naivet about Russia. Obama thought that misunderstandings and ill will had undermined the U.S.-Russian relation-ship under George W. Bush (who him-self had an early soft spot for Putin), and his defter, reassuring touch would make new memories. In 2010, the White House was patting itself on the back for forging winwin outc omesŽ with Russia. The touching emphasis on mutual interests and respect failed to under-stand Vladimir Putins motives. How he must have snickered when at a summit in 2012, Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Medvedev that he should relay to Putin to give him spaceŽ because after the election hed have more flex-ibility.Ž The Russian leader cared only about power and honor (and riches for him-self and his cronies), and was immune to Obamas blandishments. Putin stole the 2011 Russian parliamentary elec-tions anyway. He invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea in 2014 anyway. He intervened in Syria in 2015 and bombed Aleppo to rubble anyway. The Obama administration always made the minimal response, and actually welcomed Russias entry into Syria as part of a face-saving way out of Obamas red lineŽ fiasco. It is only now, after the Russian meddling in the November election, that all the apologists for Obamas reset have converted en masse to stalwart Russia hawks after years of accommodation of Moscow. Oh, how they mocked Mitt Romney when he said in 2012 that Russia was our foremost geopolitical rival. And resisted calls to arm Ukraine against the Russian invasion. And took serious-ly, time and again, the utte rly bootless attempts to cut cease-fire deals with Russia in Syria. Perhaps Russias hacking over the past year would have turned liberals against Moscow no matter what, but one gets the sense that, in their minds, Russias chief offense was taking the wrong side in the election. Now, with Obamas reset in tatters, Donald Trump wants to pursue his own version. Vladimir Putin has a dark view of the United States, so it must be a mystery to him why every new Ameri-can president is so convinced that he can get along with the Russian, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Trump should learn from Obamas failure, and not replicate it. Q rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger BUCKWALTERSpecial to Florida Weekly

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY 11310 Legacy Avenueat Legacy PlacePalm Beach Gardens, FL 33410Walk-in Urgent Care Available7 Days a Week PET TALESHow safe is your pet when riding in the car? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal SyndicateLindsey Wolko had just adopted a new dog. She had crates in her car for her other dogs, but no way to secure Maggie, so she stopped at her local pet retailer to pur-chase a safety harness for her. A couple of months later, when she had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident, Maggie, wear-ing her harness, was badly injured. Whether they are riding loose or are confined in a crate, car seat or harness, pet passengers can be hurt or killed in the event of a sudden stop or collision. They can suffer bruising, contusions, sprains or lacerations „ some of the injuries reported to Nationwide, which has claims data on 585,000 insured pets „ and more serious injuries such as broken bones and internal trauma, says emergency and criti-cal care veterinarian Gretchen L. Schoef-fler, DVM, at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. Veterinarian Marty Becker has seen too many avoidable accidents involving pets riding in cars. He recalls being stopped at an intersection during a thunderstorm. I saw a flash of lightning, heard the clap of thunder and then watched a fright-ened medium-size dog freak out, jump out the open window of a car, and get hit and killed in front of me. If the dog had been secured in a crate or with a seatbelt restraint, it would still be alive.Ž Simply securing a pet in a crate, carrier or harness isnt necessarily enough, though. Crates can break apart on impact, or be crushed if they are held in place with a seatbelt. The force of a collision can propel pets out of a crate or car-rier or cause paralyzing injuries to pets restrained by harnesses without crash protection qualities. Wolkos experience galvanized her to investigate ways pets could be safer inside vehicles. She became involved in the pet travel gear industry, studied the manufac-turing process and founded the nonprofit Center for Pet Safety, which has estab-lished crash-test standards for pet travel products and certifies those that provide tested crash protection. Were an independent entity,Ž Wolko says. We dont take funding from manu-facturers.Ž To help keep your dog or cat safe in the car, weve gathered six expert tips. 1. Place a small pet carrier „ soft or hard-sided „ in the footwell behind the drivers or front passengers seat. If you have an SUV, crossover or station wagon, place larger crates or carriers in the cargo area of your vehicle. Theres actually video demonstrating that in a collision if theyre in the back seat or the back of the vehicle, theyre much more likely to be airborne than if theyre in the footwell,Ž says feline veterinary specialist Elizabeth Colleran, DVM. 2. Never transport pets in wire crates. They explode. They bend, they morph, the pieces come out, the plastic pan shat-ters into very, very sharp pieces,Ž Wolko says. 3. Anchor carriers with strength-rated anchor straps. 4. Avoid using zip line-style products or harnesses with long extension teth-ers. It may be easier for your dog to move around, but it can increase his risk in a crash. 5. Teach your pet to ride comfortably in a crate, carrier or harness. Harnesses, in particular, can seem restrictive to dogs. Most owners will need to train their dogs to accept it and to be comfortable being strapped in,Ž says Natasha Audy of Castlegar, British Columbia, Canada, whose 13-month-old German shepherd, Richochet, wears a Sleepypod Clickit Sport harness. 6. Choose a crate that is no more than 6 inches longer than your pet. A snug fit reduces the chance of injury. Pets should have enough room to stand up and turn around.

Brenner. Eyes Open Media. 220 pages. Trade paper-back, $14.95.This new novel by Punta Gorda resident Malcom J. Brenner is largely entertaining, though at times a bit confusing. Mainly, it follows stretches in the life of Susie Louise McGonagle, a teacher whose life is for the most part drab and dispiriting. Her first husband, Mitch, is a real loser who doesnt treat her well at all, eventually bringing another woman into the household as a kind of charity case that he takes pity on. But charity is not his real motive. Susie carries around a lot of anger and almost no self-esteem. Shes an easy mark for an abuser, and one like Mitch can sense her vulnerability. Their relationship with Mitch launches one of the novels sev-eral timelines, the earliest one. Susie needs a miracle to make her life worthwhile. Though she has children, she does not seem to be in love with mothering. Soon after readers come to understand Susies despair, they find her experiencing the strangest of occurrences: the visit of an egg-shaped space vehicle, black and glit-tery, that has been damaged and cannot get on its way home. Mel-Khyor, an elongated humanoid type with pointy ears, engages with Susie, easily breaking through the expected language barrier and asking for her help. Somehow, he senses that she has exactly the powers that are needed to repair the craft, aided by the great powers of the Ship itself. Mr. Brenner creates an interstellar relationship that is at once eerie, intellectu-ally stimulating, humorous and romantic. His eye for real and imagined detail draws us into his largely improbable scenes. Susies very ordinariness is the hook. Its easy to believe in her; thus, its easy to believe in her experience with Mel-Khyor, including their sexual experience. Who would believe in Gullivers TravelsŽ if Jonathan Swift didnt first get us to believe in Gulliver? The fact that much of what Susie experiences becomes lost to memory allows for the possibility that she has been dreaming or is under a spell of some kind. But all of it is not lost. Later in her life, after having chosen to continue on Earth rather than join Mel-Khyor in his far-away home, she is perplexed by bits and pieces of what comes back to her. So is her second husband, Toby, who uses his journalistic skills to attempt a verification of Susies unusual fragments of memory. Mr. Brenners treatment of Tobys quest is one of the books most successful sub-stories. The author covers a lot of Earth-time, populating his story with a large cast of characters, not all of whom are central to the Susie narrative. He allows us to enter the what-ifŽ mindset regarding alien land-ings that are part of American lore, espe-cially in the western states where this nov-els action takes place.

Whoever would have guessed that something called a Thin Mint would have the oppo-site effect on waistlines across the country? From Jan. 19 to Feb. 12, about 7,100 of Palm Beach Countys daughters and grand-daughters will be selling the confec-tions at cookie booths across the area. There are eight varieties available this year, including the aforementioned Thin Mints, plus the chocolate and peanutbuttery Ta galongs, b uttery Trefoils, coc onutty S amoas, peanutty Do-Si-Dos, gluten-free Toffee-Tastic and a new flavor „ Girl Scout Smores, a graham cracker sandwich cookie with creamy chocolate and a marshmallowy filling. Girl Scouts first began cookie sales in 1917 „ baking their own to sell back in the day. Smores has strong ties to our organizations history, and this cookie brings a new and delicious way for consumers to support girls and the fun adven-tures that grow their everyday leadership skills through Girl Scouts,Ž Lisa Johnson, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida, said in a news release.

The steam engine, purchased from a private owner, is expected to be restored in the next year or so. Ultimately, U.S. Sugar hopes to make the engine operational and return the 97-year-old engine to operating condition, adding vintage passenger cars and offering public train rides. We intend to restore Engine No. 148 to its former glory, said U.S. Sugar spokeswoman Judy Sanchez at a welcome-homeŽ celebration in Clewiston.

Mr. Woods made his return to competitive golf in December 2016 at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. There, he finished 15th after posting a 72-hole score of 4-under 284, 14 strokes behind Hideki Matsuyama of Japan. It was a good first step for Mr. Woods, who is recovering from two back opera-tions. He led the field with 24 birdies and fired a bogey-free, 7-under-65 in the second round, displaying flashes of the great play that led him to 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major championships. It felt great to compete again,Ž Mr. Woods, 41, said. I missed it. I made a lot of birdies, but I also made a lot of mistakes. I just need to balance it out.Ž Mr. Woods hopes to play a full schedule in 2017 and his participation at The Honda will be a key part of his prepara-tions for The Masters in April. I ts great to see Tiger Woods back swinging a golf club and competing again,Ž said Honda Classic executive director Kenneth R. Kennerly. He has been such a big part of the growth at The Honda Classic since he moved to Jupiter Island. I know that his presence at this year's tournament will generate enormous excitement ...Ž For a sign of how much Woods presence means to the PGA TOUR and golf, TV ratings for the Hero World Chal-lenge were up almost 200 percent over the previous year. And the fourth round drew the highest ratings of any October to December event in Golf Channel his-tory. His impact on The Honda Classic is evident. In 2012, his first year play-ing The Honda, attendance surged 45 percent to 161,700. That number has since continued to climb to the 202,128 in 2016. I love playing against these guys and miss being out here,Ž Mr. Woods said.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYWhy the 2017 United States Presidential Inauguration will be a lot like every previous one — and why it will be much different. our heritage of conferring power in a peaceful and orderly manner. The in-auguration brings into stark relief how the United States differs from much of the world. No military coups. No preor-dained results determined by a strong-man or a dictator. And, despite the mighty and frightening efforts of Rus-sian hackers in 2016, our elections are remarkably fair and accurate. The inau-gur al is Americas way „ as conceived by the framers of the Constitution „ of wrapping all of these virtues into one neat package that is opened on Jan. 20 in years in which we have a presidential contest. (Inaugural day initially was set for March 4 „ four months after Election Day „ to allow for travel time and the final counting of votes. As technol-ogy reduced the time for travel and vote counting, it was decided that four months was an unnecessarily long time to wait for the president and vice presi-dent to begin their terms. That was the rationale for the 20th Amendment, which was ratified in 1933 and set Jan. 20 as Inauguration Day. The first Jan. 20 inauguration took place in 1937. If Jan. 20 falls on a Sunday, a private inauguration is held on that day, followed by a public ceremony on Monday, Jan. 21.) For all of the solemnity and reverence that attends this occasion, history re-veals that often the inaugural process is rife with bickering, embarrassing gaffes, crude behavior and a propensity toward grandiosity that is at odds with our egalitarian ideals and inherent sense of decorum. How Trumps inauguration will play out is anyones guess. If past is prologue, we can, at best, expect a ceremony that will feature an imminently forgettable inaugural address. But there could be much worse in store. The sour tone of the transition, the president-elects propensity to indulge in sideshow an-tics and the deeply polarized nature of American society do not auger well. Past inaugurations have produced unex-pected and unpleasant moments. Sure to attract much attention is the role evangelicals and televangelists will play. Paula White and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Detroit are among six faith leaders who have been invited by Trump to participate. These two choices are controversial because White and Jack-son belong to a subset of evangelical preachers who espouse what is known as the prosperity gospel.Ž While the faith movement is widely popular, many Christians consider (prosperity preaching to be) heretical,Ž the Associated Press reported. Minis-ters in the tradition often hold up their own wealth as evidence their teachings work.Ž The AP further noted: The Senate Finance Committee had investigated White and five other prosperity preach-ers over their spending, but the inquiry ended in 2011 with no penalty for the tel-evangelists.Ž Writing in The Washington Post, Michael Horton, professor of theology at Western Seminary California, highlight-ed the schism within the Christian com-munity when he delivered this withering assessment: Televangelist White has a lot in common with Trump ... Both are in their third marriage and have endured moral and financial scandal. According to family values spokesman James Dob-son ... White personally led (Trump) to Christ.Ž There is no denying that showcasing prosperity preachers is in keeping with the tone and substance of Trumps cam-paign, which stressed his success as a businessman and often celebrated his affinity for conspicuous consumption. In a statement, White hinted at the tone of the prayer she will offer, saying she would beseech God to richly bless our extraordinary home, the United States of America.Ž Bizarrely, much of the pre-inaugural chatter has been about what role ce-lebritiesŽ will play. It agitates Trump to no end that high-profile entertainers like Garth Brooks, Elton John and Celine Dion wanted no part of his inaugural. (For the record, John is a Brit and Dion a French Canadian.) Now, a man who clearly craves the adulation of the famous, the Queens rich kid who desperately desired the respect of the Manhattan and Palm Beach elite, is being denied it, publicly and in hu-miliating fashion,Ž is how The Daily Beastsummed up Trumps celebrity dilemma. As is his wont, Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage. The so-called A list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING.

What-ever your leaning, it matters not. The electoral system has worked its will, and now it is time to enact the results.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NEWS A17Trump and his supporters that the de-cidedly AŽ list Beyonce performed at Ob amas 2013 inauguration, although there was considerable embarrassment later when it was revealed she had lip-synched the national anthem. The best Trump could muster for this high-pro-file duty was a 16-year-old singer, Jackie Evancho, who achieved a small measure of fame via the Americas Got TalentŽ television show. That this issue of celebrities has become a topic of heated and prolonged conversation indicates how the inaugu-ral process has begun a slow slide to-ward becoming democracys greatest re-ality television show. Trump, of course, is a master of reality television, and his inaugural could hasten this unseemly decline Trump has told associates that he expects the television ratings for his swear-ing-in to be higher than usual. Obamas first inaugural in 2009 attracted 37.7 mil-lion viewers. Four years later, his second drew a television audience of just 20.5 million. The figures pale in compari-son to the 84 million people who last September watched the first debate be-tween Trump and Hillary Clinton. QQQQQQQQQQQQ THE CENTERPIECE OF EVERY INAUGURAtion is the incoming presidents address. Trump pledges to write his own speech, departing from the standard practice of leaning heavily on experienced, pro-fessional speechwriters. If Trump does indeed personally pen his remarks, we are likely to be treated to an inaugural presentation the likes of which we have yet to see. He wants to write the inaugural himself,Ž Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has discussed the speech with Trump, told CNN. He doesnt want it to be long. He would like it to be a shorter one. He doesnt want people standing out in the cold.Ž Brinkley also confirmed that television ratings are extremely important to Trump. You know, weve had high ratings for the debates,Ž Brinkley said. I think hes starting to get into the zone that were looking at how this inaugural is going to be watched, and hes going to put a lot of effort into it.Ž Typically, inaugural pronouncements are excruciatingly boring and rarely edi-fying. This is not a recent development. As The Economist pointed out in 1913, The presidents of the United States have gotten into the habit of emptying a load of words into the streets and calling them inaugural addresses.Ž Most of the speeches are terrible,Ž Robert Lehrman, a former speechwriter for Al Gore, has observed. Even the ones we remember. I dont think there is any reporter working anywhere that couldnt write language as crisp or con-crete as the majority of them.Ž The late Paul Boller, a history professor who specialized in inaugural ad-dresses, read, analyzed and dissected every inaugural speech „ from George Washington to Barack Obama „ and found there was not one humorous sen-tence in any of them. None. Historians agree that a signature line „ not the entire body of the text „ is what separates inaugural speeches. If an incoming president can find that one memorable sentence or phrase, then his-tory will take note. To date, the consensus is that there have been four such noteworthy mo-ments. The first came in 1801, when Jefferson sought to heal the wounds inflicted dur-ing a ferociously dirty and divisive elec-tion. We are all Republicans; we are all Federalists.Ž The next memor able line w as utte red during Abraham Lincolns second in-augural in 1865. As with Jefferson, Lin-coln wanted to bring together a nation divided. With malice toward none, with charity for all.Ž In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt knew he needed to calm a nation whose nerves were frayed by the Great Depression. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.Ž Finally, John F. Kennedy wanted to strike a hopeful note in 1961 and signal that a new generation had risen to pow-er. To that end, Kennedy appealed to what he believed to be Americas lofti-est ideals. My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.Ž The length of inaugural addresses is all over the map, ranging from 130 words for Washing-tons second inaugural to the stupefying 8,445 words William Henry Harrison inflicted on his defenseless and shiv-ering audience in 1841. Harrison occupies a special place in the hearts of those in-trigued by presiden-tial inaugurations. He was the last president who was born as a British subject, the oldest president to be elected at the time and had a grandson, Benjamin Harrison, who served a term as president. He ini-tially gained prominence for his valor fighting Native Americans at the Battle of Tippecanoe. But it was his astoundingly abysmal inaugural performance, and its after-math, that has cemented his place in presidential lore. It took Harrison nearly two hours to deliver his verbal barrage. Remarkably, the original draft of the speech was far longer. Harrisons friend, Daniel Webster (a noted orator in his own right), tossed out large chunks of the text in what must surely have been one of the most daunting editing jobs in American history. Webster discovered, to his horror, that Harrisons speech dealt mostly with Roman history in general and Roman proconsuls in particular. Upon com-pleting his edit, an exhausted Webster told an acquaintance, I have killed seventeen Ro-man proconsuls as dead as smelts, every one of them!Ž Harrisons word salad was served on a raw and blustery day, but the 68-year-old president-elect „ in an effort to appear robust and vigorous „ shunned hat and overcoat. Not long after the inauguration, Har-rison was struck down by pneumonia and died just one month into his term „ the shortest presidential tenure ever. Some speculated that Harrisons braving the extreme elements contributed to his demise, but no can prove that. Still, the deliverance of the most dreadful in-augural address ever, coupled with an unexpected death a mere month later, makes the star-crossed Harrison the ob-ject of fascination that endures to this day. Trump insists that he wants his remarks to be brief. But what, exactly, does that mean? Reading Trumps mind is a fools errand, but one indication of his thinking is that he has said he admires the ad-dresses delivered by Kennedy and Ron-ald Reagan. Kennedy spoke 1,365 words. Reagans first speech was 2,463 words, his second, 2,564 words. To put this in some sort of perspective, President Obamas 2013 ad-dress clocked in at 2,137 words, while his first inaugural effort put forth 2,404 words. QQQQQQQQQQQQ THE SPEECH IS DEFINITELY THE THING, BUT it is not the only thing. A presidential inauguration is booby-trapped with in-numerable opportunities to screw up. At John Kennedys inauguration, Robert Frost composed an original poem for the occasion. Frost was unable to read his composition because he was blinded by the glare coming off freshly fallen snow. He improvised and recited anoth-er poem from memory and then capped it all by dedicating his performance to the president-elect John Finley.Ž In 2009, it was Chief Justice John Rob-SEE INAUGURATION, A18 XCOURTESY IMAGESLeft: President Obama was sworn in by Chief Justice Roberts on Jan. 21, 2013.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYerts turn to botch things. As The Chicago Tribune reported: Swearing in a new president for the first time, (Roberts) stumbled over the opening words of the oath. President Barack Obama, realizing the minor mis-cue, paused and then followed the chief justice in repeating the right words slightly out of order.Ž While the fumbling of words might have seemed to be a minor miscue,Ž it raised troubling questions about the legality of the swearing-in, since the presidential oath comes from the Con-stitution and is meant to be recited pre-cisely and correctly. Taking no chances, Obama was sworn in a second time the next day. Curiously, the words So help me GodŽ have been tacked on to the end of the oath. Those words were not set forth in the Constitution and how they worked their way into the tersely word-ed recitation is a historical mystery. Theres a myth that George Washington added those words to the end of his oath in 1789,Ž Jim B endat, the author of the marvelously readable book De-mocracys Big Day: The Inauguration of Our Pr esident 1789-2013, Ž told The Washington Post. No one b ack in 1789 ever suggested that, but we do know that by many accounts Chester Arthur in 1881 added those four words and that those words were not added in 1929 by Herbert Hoover. Beginning with FDR in 1933, every president has added those four words.Ž While inaugural balls have a long tradition (the first official ball was held in 1809 with James Madison), another tradition, which resulted in perhaps the wildest scene ever, has been discarded. On March 4, 1829, following the inauguration, Andrew Jackson opened the White House to the public. A thirsty, un-ruly mob quickly formed, and the presi-dential residence became more Animal House than White House. The party was so big that the courageous, battle-tested President Jack-son fled the scene (out a back door or through a window) as a huge crowd drank heavily, destroyed furniture and china, and even ground cheese into the carpets with their boots,Ž according to an account from the National Constitu-tion Center. Only the promise of more free liquor drew the rabble out of the ex-ecutive mansion.Ž The account goes on to posit, however, that the wildnessŽ of the day may have been exaggerated.Ž But there is no denying that whatever took place at the White House that day hastened the de-mise of inaugural open houses. QQQQQQQQQQQQ THE WEIRD ON AGAIN/OFF AGAIN RELATIONship between Obama and Trump dur-ing the transition is confounding. This is largely due to Trumps contradictory and oftentimes puzzling tweets. One day Obama is uncooperative and obstrep-erous, Trump avers. Yet the next day brings a tweet or a remark praising the president for his graciousness. Do these muddled messages portend an uncom-fortable Inauguration Day? Will the two men behave themselves? Whatever the circumstance, it is likely that any contretemps involving Trump and the president are small potatoes when examined in the light of past per-sonal feuds involving ingoing and outgo-ing presidents. And there have been oc-casions when these personal feuds carry on through Inauguration Day. The most extreme example was John Adams decision to boycott Thomas Jef-fersons inauguration in 1801. The presi-dential election between Adams, the sitting president, and Jefferson, the vice president, had been exceedingly vitriol-ic, and it would be years before the two men repaired their relationship. The bad blood between Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower during the 1953 transition and inauguration set a new modern standard for ill will and pettiness. The two men, quite simply, loathed each other. Neither thought the other was qualified to be president, and their dislike was deeply personal. The general doesnt know any more about politics than a pig knows about Sunday,Ž was one of the more genteel comments the blunt-speaking Truman made about Eisenhower, who returned the presidents contempt in kind. I wonder if I can stand sitting next to him,Ž Eisenhower mused as he contem-plated Inauguration Day. The hatred between the men (on Inauguration Day) was like a monsoon,Ž Clark Clifford, a longtime Democratic power broker revealed later. Things took a turn for the worse „ if that was possible „ in the hours before Eisenhower was sworn in. Truman invited Ike for a cup of coffee at the White House. The president-elect refused. On Inauguration Day, when it is customary for the president-elect to greet the outgoing president before the two depart together for the ceremony, Eisen-hower refused not only to enter the White House but even to leave his car to greet Truman before they drove off to-gether,Ž Douglas Brinkley, the presiden-tial historian, said in a column written in 2000. Once thrown together in the automobile, things got really nasty, as reported by The Washington Post: Then, in the car on the way to the Capitol, Eisenhower „ one of the heroes of World War II „ asked Truman who had released John, Eisenhowers son, from active duty in Korea so he could attend the inaugura-tion. John, a West Pointer, was embar-rassed that he had been called home. Truman said he had given the order. Eisenhower was livid.Ž Things were scarcely better during the lead-up to the 1981 inauguration. Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter not only disagreed politically, they shared a visceral dislike of one another. Carter deemed his successor to be shallow, lazy and ignorant. Reagan saw the outgoing president as a rube who was hopelessly out of his league. This animosity was taken to a new level when Nancy Reagan announced that she intended to redecorate the White House. Nothing unusual about that, but what was remarkable „ and spectacu-larly disrespectful to the First Family „ was her suggestion the Carters vacate the residence a few weeks in advance of Inauguration Day so she could get on with the task of spiffing-up the place. Once again, the ride to the swearing-in was not pleasant. Carters Inauguration Day misery was compounded when, during Reagans ad-dress, Iran released 52 Americans it had held hostage for 444 days. The hostage crisis had dogged Carters administra-tion and surely contributed to his defeat. Irans decision to set the hostages free on Inauguration Day was seen as a de-liberate attempt to further humiliate the departing president. Inauguration Day marks an abrupt end to the outgoing administration. It is jar-ring to all those involved, but especially so to those who are losing their jobs. The transition is like an epic corporate takeover, but the incoming com-pany does no due diligence and 4,000 of your top employees quit on the same day,Ž explained David Eagles, director of presidential transition at the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service. Staffers remain on duty until the new president has taken the oath. These final hours provide an opportunity for mis-chief. In 2002, the General Accounting Office, after an investigation, concluded that damage, theft, vandalism and pranks did occur in the White HouseŽ the previous year as aides and staff peo-ple working for President Clinton va-cated their offices in advance of George W. Bushs arrival. The GAO pegged the financial cost of this boorish behavior at about $14,000. Nearly $5,000 of that total was required to replace computer keyboards, many of which had missing WŽ keys. Some of the damage, (the GAO) said, was clearly intentional,Ž The New York Times reported. Glue was smeared on desk drawers. Messages disparaging President Bush were left on signs and in telephone voice mail. A few of the messages used profane or obscene lan-guage.Ž A repeat of such foolishness seems unlikely. By most accounts, the staffs of Obama and Trump have been working together harmoniously. QQQQQQQQQQQQ FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTO HISTORICAL MInutiae, here is an inaugural question „ courtesy of Jim Bendat, the inauguration expert „ that is sure to stump all but the most astute. Two presidents have had four inaugurations. Name them. Anyone with a passing acquaintance of presidential history will easily name one of the presidents. That would be Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected to four terms. But who could the sec-ond be? No other president, after all, has served more than two terms. Give up?It is Barack Obama. Confused? Well, Bendat has an explanation. In 2009, Obama was inaugurated twice. Once in public, when the chief justice screwed-up the oath, and yet again in private, just to make certain the oath met the re-quirements of the Constitution. In 2013, Jan. 20 fell on a Sunday. A public inau-guration is never conducted on Sunday. But a private swearing-in was held and then a public one took place on Monday, Jan. 21. So there you have it. Obama, as with FDR, had four inaugurations. If you choose to watch the inauguration at a tavern, pull that bit of trivia out of your pocket and challenge someone to a bet. It will surely win you a beer, which you can down to either drown your sor-row or celebrate the day. Q INAUGURATIONFrom page 17COURTESY IMAGESTop: Ronald Reagan is sworn in. Bottom left: George W.

BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” oridaweekly.comLast year was a tough one for Florida panthers. Not that any year isn t „ the traffic just keeps coming. By the end of 2016 the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission listed 42 panther deaths, 34 as a result of motor vehicles. Thats a historic record. Unfortunately for the panthers or for those passionate about saving the spe-cies, 16 females were numbered among the 42 mortalities tracked by the FWC. The numbers have increased each year. In 2015, 30 panthers were killed after being struck by motor vehicles. A year before that, in 2014, the number of vehi-cle-related panther deaths came in at 24. Meanwhile last year, only 14 cubs were born in a total of six litters, the FWC reports „ an unenviable and even discouraging death-to-birth ratio in 2016 of 42 to 14. But the FWC also lists depredationsŽ „ the killing of livestock or domestic animals reported to and investigated by the FWC. The panthers hit back, apparently, with big appetites: On 31 of 41 occasions last year panthers killed livestock or pets, including seven times in Hendry County and 24 times in Col-lier County. On one occasion in Hendry County a panther or panthers killed 11 sheep; on other occasions in Collier County they killed six goats and three calves. While bears, coyotes, bobcats, dogs and even vultures have taken the blame for some depredations, panthers are the chief cause, says Darrell Land, the FWC panther team leader who responded to questions in an email conveyed by an FWC spokeswoman. We look for evidence such as bite marks, tracks, feeding patterns and other clues like if the carcass was dragged off and covered,Ž he said. Sometimes those depredations occurred within a few miles of each other over a four or five-week peri-od, and on one occasion in Collier Countys Golden Gate Estates preda-tions occurred from April to May on 20th Avenue NE; 12 Street NE; and 6th Avenue NE „ two incidents resulting from panther predation, one from a bear and one unknown, the website says. Could a single panther have preyed on those goats and sheep in Golden Gate? Will panthers kill more than they need to eat? How does anybody know that panthers are responsible? We know that multiple panthers were involved because some depreda-tions were caused by males, some by females and some by a mother with offspring,Ž said Mr. Land. Panthers use large areas, typically between 40 to over 100 square miles. Golden Gate Estates is over 100 square miles in size and most depredations occur within this area.Ž But many also occurred on private property or on various agricultural tracts including the JB Ranch south of Oil Well Road off State Road 29, in eastern Collier County, according to the FWC website data. The cattle ranch is owned by Aliese Priddy, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to the FWCs conservation commission. She is vice chair and is up for reappoint-ment this month. Ms. Priddy has publically advocated removing panthers from the federal Endangered Species list, not increasing the population in Southwest Florida, and not extending their range to Central or North Florida. She could not be reached last week by telephone. The state has paid Ms. Priddy $3.75 million to preserve about 1,600 acres on her ranch as panther habitat, reports show „ even though she has argued that landowners should be able to devel-op their property if they wish, whether panthers live on it or not. She also receives federal benefits from a USDA program managed by the Farm Services Agency for cattle killed on her land by panthers. In 2014, for example, panthers killed a single calf on her land; in 2015 they killed another, according to the FWCs records (Ms. Priddy has claimed pre-viously panthers killed more than the FWC credits); but last year in eight dep-redations on her land, five were blamed on panthers; two others were listed as unknown and one was attributed to a bear. The federal FSA program for any such ranchers, known as the Livestock Indemnity Program or LIP, in 2016 paid livestock owners 75 percent of the aver-age fair market value of livestock for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather or by attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the Federal Government, or protected by federal law,Ž according to the website. Beef, for example, is categorized as adult or nonadult. Bulls were listed in 2016 as valued at $1,927.89, with cows coming in at $1,529.14. In the nonadult category, calves weighing less than 400 pounds were val-ued at $757.59; those 400 to 799 pounds at $819.65; and nonadults more than 800 pounds were worth $1,120.38. For five calves killed by panthers or bears in the 400to 800-pound range, therefore, a rancher could have received about $4,100 from the federal govern-ment last year. (Ms. Priddy also hosts a private hunting camp on her land and strongly supports the Florida bear hunt.) An equine,Ž which would include miniature and Shetland ponies „ ani-mals also listed as killed by panthers in Southwest Florida from time to time „ brought $1,059.47 per animal. A duck, in contrast, was worth $4.21.So whats been changing and why are more panthers dying as well as preying on livestock or pets (Chihuahuas seem to a particular favorite, FWC data sug-gest)? There are more people and more vehicles in traditional panther habitat, as Mr. Land points out. But could the number of panthers also be on the increase? The answer isnt clear. The FWC told Florida Weekly that the numbers of this highly endangered species are now somewhere between 100 and 180. That loose bracket represents an estimate the FWC has used for years based on radio collars, hired trackers and other information. Ranchers and farmers operating in traditional panther habitats say the numbers are significantly higher than that, an opinion based on their own observations but without data to sup-port it. Even Mr. Land, however, implied they might be right. An upward trend in deaths is consistent with increase in the number of pan-thers,Ž he said. The FWC spokeswoman, Carli Segelson, indicated a new count is underway. In November, Mr. Land and others located female panther tracks in Charlotte County north of the Caloo-sahatchee River, the first time females have existed there since 1973, more than 40 years. The panthers are moving, perhaps even expanding in range and popula-tion. But the traffic keeps coming in greater numbers.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 NEWS A21Exercise and pregnancy: How much is too much?As with each New Year, many people use this time to reflect and consider making lifestyle changes for the better. One change that is very common is the resolution to be healthier, such as start-ing an exercise routine or switching to a more nutritious diet. For women who may already be pregnant or planning to do so, you may be wondering if it is safe to combine the benefits of staying fit with the excitement of your pregnancy. As a mom of two, I can tell you firsthand that each pregnancy is different. With my first child, this was not one of my top priorities. However, during my second pregnancy, I made the decision to be more active and found it to be a great way to stay in shape. Most expectant mothers want to know how much exercise is healthy and what types of activities are the best. Many forms of exercise are safe when done with caution and moderation. The exercises you can do largely depend on the level of activity you were at before pregnancy and the status of your health. Your doctor will likely encourage you to consider your physi-cal fitness routine before pregnancy, and from there, develop a reasonable exercise regimen. Even if you re having a normal pregnancy, you will want to re-evaluate your activities. For example, if you were running five miles a day before pregnancy, you may need to reduce the frequency or even take up walking instead. Here are some other activities: Q Swimming: This is a great activity for your body because it tones muscles while the water supports your weight (nonimpact). Hot tubs and saunas should be avoided. Q Stationary cycling: This is preferable to road biking because weight and balance changes occur during pregnancy. Be sure to watch posture to avoid backache. Q Exercise classes designed for pregnant women: Many health clubs and gyms offer exercise programs specific to pregnant women. You may also try yoga to get into shape without straining your body. Most importantly, be sensible.The following are tips for sensible exercise during pregnancy: Q Try to work in 30 minutes or more of moderately intensive physical activity every day. Q Avoid exercise that requires lying on your back after the third month of pregnancy. Q Avoid long periods of motionless standing. Q Do not exercise strenuously in hot, humid weather or when you are sick with a fever. Q Be smart „ if something feels uncomfortable, dont do it. Q Low-impact exercise is best. Q Wear shoes that have cushioning and will give your body support. Q As pregnancy progresses, your center of gravity will change. Be aware of these changes as you choose exercises. Q Always begin with a five-minute warm-up, like slow walking or stationary cycling with low resistance to warm your muscles. Q Follow intense exercise with a cool-down. Follow this with gentle stretching in place. Q Dont exhaust yourself. Q Get up from the floor sl owly and gradually to avoid feeling dizzy or fainting. Once you are standing, keep moving around. Q Drink water often „ before, during and after exercise to be sure your body gets enough fluid. Q Increase the number of calories to meet the needs of your pregnancy and exercise program. Talk with your doctor about how many extra calories you may need. Q Stop exercising and consult your doctor if you experience pain, vaginal bleeding, dizziness or feeling faint, shortness of breath, irregular or rapid heartbeat, difficulty walking, pain in your back or pubic area or uterine contractions. Even with its physical and emotional benefits, maintaining an exercise rou-tine during pregnancy should always be under the supervision of a physician. You should always check with your doc-tor before beginning or continuing an exercise regimen to evaluate the risks and benefits. And always be aware of warning signs that may indicate you should stop exercising.We deliver for youAs your delivery approaches, the staff at The Birthplace at St. Marys Medical Center understands that every expect-ant mother has different hopes and beliefs about childbirth.

Shed texted her daughter-in-law, Megan, yesterday asking when she could visit Megan and Todds baby. As usual, Megan had been evasive. Megan always had excuses for why it wasnt convenient for Paula to come over. Paula had never encountered a young woman who was so difficult: Megan had a mind of her own and continually pushed back. When Paula tried to vent her frustrations about Megan to her son, Todd, he was unsympathetic. What do you expect? You were never nice to her. Why should you expect her to put herself out for you?Ž If truth be told, Paula had been disappointed about her sons choice of partner from the outset. Shed always envisioned that Todd would marry a stylish, outgoing young woman who would enjoy going out to lunch and shopping with her. Megan was a more conservative, studious type who made it very clear she eschewed her in-laws lifestyle and values. The conflict started when Todd had confided he was about to propose to Megan. Paulas husband had warned her to keep her thoughts to herself, but Paula could not contain herself and had advised Todd not to marry Megan. Todd had been incensed by his mothers comments and had berated Paula for being shallow and mean-spirited. He asserted that Paula had the tendency to be overbearing and opinionated. Paula never dreamed that Todd would be dumb enough to confide their conversation to Megan. And, even though Paula had attempted to apologize and get things on track with Megan, the young woman had held this against Paula ever since.We know that oft-expressed statement: When you marry someone, you marry their whole family.Ž But, lets take the statement one step further. When our children marry, their life partner becomes part of our family as well. Some folks are blessed when their children pick partners that are a comfortable fit. However, for those parents whose chil-dren make choices that disappoint them, the parties initial responses to the disap-pointment may have far-reaching impact on future family harmony. When two families are brought together, they often bring different val-ues, personalities and cultures to the table. Young couples may feel caught in the middle as they attempt to integrate what theyve learned from each of their backgrounds into a combined life„ while at the same time balancing their ties with both families. Differences in temperaments, problem-solving skills, communication styles, and attitudes may fuel conflict and misunderstanding. When we have rigid expectations for our childs future, we may impose dam-aging, and unrealistic burdens on them. Some of us have a need „ conscious or otherwise „ to have our children follow a predetermined course of behavior. Its helpful when mothers of sons attempt to gain insight into the mind-sets and comfort levels of their new daughters-in-law. Many young women of todays generation have definite ideas about how they define their lifestyles and view extended family ties „ and resist the (sometimes unsolicited!) advice and input of the older generation. Understandably, these young women have grown up in a family with values, customs and belief systems that may be quite different. They may feel threat-ened, uncomfortable „ or downright turned off „ to the lifestyle and values of their in-laws. They may have a natu-ral inclination to spend time with their own mothers and extended families and are not always open to dividing time equally with both sides. This can be bewildering and hurtful to their hus-bands families and a source of conflict. And, if the young couple takes steps to maintain a boundary protecting their joined life together, family loyalties may be further tested. This approach can be quite disconcerting to the older gen-eration of women who may have been raised in a time where young women were taught to be more soft-spoken and deferential. Newly blended families will fare better when everyone recognizes that there may be certain challenges that are quite common and to be expected. They should remind themselves that it takes quite a bit of time for everyone to adjust to the changes and to become comfortable with each others personal-ity quirks, habits and points of view. In some cases, the parties wont be able to warm up to each other, and despite efforts to build closer bonds, it just isnt going to happen. In those cases, it might be sufficient to set a more realistic goal that the parties should be cordial and respectful to each other. For the sake of harmony, newly minted (or soon-to-be) mothers-in-law should recite an internal mantra: Smile, smile, smile, and think hard before offering opinions or advice. Remember: It is important to todays young generation that they define their own paths. Giving them the space to gain this autonomy and confidence is critically important. If you dont have something positive and supportive to say, keep your thoughts to yourself. And for the newly minted sons-in-law and daughters-in-law: The mantra should be to remind yourselves that most of the time, the older generation has the best of inten-tions. Yes, they may at times be annoy-ing, self-serving, or pushy. They may offer their opinions when you do not ask for them. But again „ most of the time „ they mean well. Take a deep breath, and try not to be too sensitive or take things too personally. Its okay to have a mind of your own, and to speak up about important things, but please remember that your in-laws have feel-ings also, and speak to them with kind-ness and respect. And, yes, smile, smile, smile, even if its trying at times! And, for all the parties: Remember that you hold something dear in com-mon „ the wish to maintain ties to your blood relatives and grandchildren.

SEE BANKING, A24 X BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@” oridaweekly.comWe go to bed and wake up with mobile devices, travel almost every-where with them, talk to them when we re confused or lost, ask their advice on where to go for dinner, and rely on them to keep us occupied at a bar or while waiting in line at the bank. That is, if we wait in lines at banks anymore at all. From national compa-nies such as Bank of America to local community banks, all are reacting to consumer preference shifting toward an online world. Our customers, of all ages, not just Millennials, really have embraced mobile banking,Ž said Robbie Roep-storff, pr esident of Edison National Bank in Lee County. Since Americans have come to rely on mobile devices after the iPhone was introduced in 2007, everyday retail banking continues to be a fast-growing niche. Customers are migrating away from in-person services such as drive-up tellers in favor of technology such as mobile check deposit, one of the most popular and fastest growing services provided by banks. That enables people to take a picture of a check on their phone and use their banks mobile app to deposit it from wherever they happen to be. I would say right now probably the hottest thing is the mobile deposit,Ž said Aliette Pettay, senior vice president of retail banking for First Florida Integrity Bank. We just introduced it about a year ago and that took off like wildfire,Ž said Alyson Burch, vice president and Punta Gorda branch manager with Charlotte State Bank & Trust. A national Bank of America survey found that 62 percent of respondents in 2016 used digital as their primary meth-od of banking, up 11 percent from the year before. As the gap widens, Bank of America continues to selectively close drive-up windows nationwide, includ-ing across South Florida in Lee, Collier, Charlotte and Palm Beach counties. Some are being consolidated to other centers,Ž said Michael Esposito, a regional sales executive for Bank of Americas retail banking services.

Bank of Americas customers deposited 26 million checks using their mobile banking app in the third quarter of 2016, accounting for 18 percent of all deposits, and paid 25 million bills, up 30 percent from the year before.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 BUSINESS A23 MONEY & INVESTINGTrump’s impact on the stock market as unpredictable as his tweetsIn writing this column, I really try to refrain from delving into politics as much as I possibly can. There are plenty of other writers for this paper who are much more knowledgeable about this subject than I. However, in recent weeks, politics have played more of an influence on the market than I have seen in a long while. So what effect has it had on stocks and will this trend continue? The first sign we all had that the election and the aftermath would be signifi-cant market movers happened the night of the election. When it was clear that Trump was going to win the presidency, stock futures plummeted and gold shot upward as uncertainty gripped the mar-kets. But when the markets opened the next morning, stocks started to climb and gold actually sold off. After digest-ing the news overnight, investors began to realize that a Trump president prob-ably would be good for big business and the economy in general. Therefore, they concluded, they should buy stocks and sell gold and Treasury Bonds. Since Election Day, analysts have been trying to guess which investments would be helped and which would be hurt. From this analysis, the Trump TradeŽ was born. This trading strategy is to first go long on certain stock sectors that should benefit the most if Trump enacts the policies central to his campaign. Mate-rial stocks like U.S. Steel should benefit as the government funds massive infra-structure projects and enacts protec-tionist trade policies. Financial company profits should rise if Trump rolls back onerous Dodd-Frank rules imposed after the financial crisis. And small cap stocks should similarly benefit as regulations are removed across the board. The second part of the Trump TradeŽ is to short investments that are antici-pated to be treated unfavorably. Gold and bonds should under-perform as the economy strengthens and inflation increases. Foreign currencies should fall against the dollar as interest rates rise. And large cap technology and multi-national companies should also under-perform as the dollar strengthens and multi-national trade is potentially inhib-ited. But beyond the Trump Trade,Ž the president-elect has been moving mar-kets simply through his tweets and press conferences. For example, a comment about a weapons program costing too much will cause the manufacturer s stock to fall 3 percent. Or a tweet that a company has met Trumps approval by bringing jobs back to the U.S. will cause the stock to pop a few points. Most recently, Trump held his first press conference in a number of months and whole sectors moved when Trump said drug manufacturers were getting away with murder.Ž The entire biotech sector fell over 3 percent. For the time being, it looks like emotions and anticipatory trades are ruling the markets. This is very scary for dis-ciplined investors as this makes funda-mental analysis almost meaningless in the short run. If whole asset classes are going to move because of a 6 a.m. tweet, how can you intelligently do any type of investing? But this too will pass and the markets hopefully will return to a semblance of normalcy where actual earnings and economic events drive the markets. Already, as we approach Trumps inauguration, the Trump TradeŽ is beginning to reverse itself as inves-tors reassess the actual impact Trump will have on the economy. But Trumps unpredictable nature will almost cer-tainly increase volatility until the mar-ket can better anticipate which poli-cies discussed during the campaign will become reality and which were simply rhetoric. Q „ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric MOVING ON UP Susan Pierangelino Rabinowitz became involved with the Litera-cy Coalition of Palm Beach County through the bank where she works. One day, when she attended a meeting for the Coalition in Belle Glade, it became clear to her that her work for the not-for-profit orga-nization wasnt by chance. I was supposed to be part of this mission,Ž said Mrs. Rabinowitz, a credit risk executive for Bank of America. She recently became presi-dent of the board for the Literacy Coali-tion ( She has served on the board since 2009, serving in various capacities including parliamentarian, treasurer, and vice president. Besides providing leadership to the board of directors, she is involved in the coalitions fundraising efforts, including the Love of Literacy Luncheon, the Great Grown-Up Spell-ing Bee and Loop for Literacy. A few years ago, she began running marathons and has run three already. On Feb. 4, shell be running in the Loop for Literacy at John Prince Park. Until this year the event had been held at Lake Okeechobee. But back to Belle Glade. During that meeting several years ago, a woman got up to say that before she learned to read she couldnt even go to the grocery store without her hus-band or read prescription bottles to give her son medicine. That mothers story made an impression on Mrs. Rabinowitz, a mother of four (Tyler, 23, Nicolas, 22, Daniel, 16, and Rachel, 20). I read to all my children before they started school to get them ready for learning and I realized that many children didnt have that opportunity,Ž she said. She wanted to do something about that. Mrs. Rabinowitz said that one in seven adults in Palm Beach County is unable to read and understand informa-tion found in books, newspapers and manuals. Nearly half of all third-graders in our county are not reading on grade level,Ž she said. Through extensive out-reach and collaboration with a network of community partners, the Literacy Coalition strives to ensure that individ-uals who need to improve their literacy skills receive the help they need.Ž Last year, the Literacy Coalition provided services to more than 27,000 adults, children and families. Susan Pierangelino RabinowitzAge: 49 Where I grew up: Coral Springs Where I live now: Wellington, with my husband, Paul Rabinowitz, three sons and one daughter. Education: Bachelor of science, finance major, Florida Atlantic Univer-sity What brought me to Florida: My family relocated to Florida from Balti-more before I started the sixth grade, so I have been here most of my life. My job today: Credit risk executive covering Florida. My first job and what it taught me: I was a bank teller at Florida National Bank and it taught me the importance of taking the time to understand client needs. A career highlight: Fresh out of credit school I had the opportunity to underwrite a financing package for a professional sports team expansion to Florida. Although early in my career, that experience still fuels my passion for banking today. What I do when Im not working: Spend time with my family, boating, playing Scrabble, and cooking. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Whether your role requires credit skills or not, take the time to develop some base level financial acumen, your ability to con-tribute, your job satisfaction, and your long-term career path will be broader having that knowledge base. About mentors: Lori Chevy and Fab Brumley have both been strong men-tors and sounding boards for me for most of my career and have taught me many things. Learning how to balance the demands of a career and family has been a common theme in our discus-sions and has made a significant differ-ence.

For business clients, banks are offering security tokens, a separate digital device or an app that generates random, one-time codes to keep deposits safe. Just as opening accounts, transfers, and check deposits have become standard online procedures for many consumers, bankers say peer-to-peer money transfers pioneered by services such as PayPal will become increasingly common, convenient and secure. Banks are starting to offer more sophisticated peer-to-peer services such as transfer-ring small amounts of money into a friends or grandchilds account from a mobile device. I think things like that are getting more and more popular,Ž Ms. Burch said. Theyre starting to expect that.Ž Q BEHIND THE WHEELTop cars at Detroit show include GTs, good old standby and electricThe North American International Auto Show in Detroit gives the auto-makers their first opportunity every year to get the public excited about the road ahead. While the crystal ball sees as far as a decade away, most of us really wont wait that long for our dream car. So were going to peek into the short-term crystal ball and look at the five most interesting vehicles that will be hitting the road in 2017.Dodge Challenger GT AWDThere are no real changes to the exterior of Dodges muscle car for 2017, but an essential piece has been added under the skin. The new GT version has an all-wheel drive option (base price $36K.) Like most Challengers already out there, this new one has a preference for rear-wheel drive. But if the system detects any slipping in the rear wheels (which this muscle machine often does,) the front tires begin to provide essen-tial grip. Its only available with the V6 option „ no Hemi or supercharged ver-sion. Of course, no one would consider the GTs 305 hp a slouch, either. But what gets us excited about the Challeng-er GT is that those who live at the end of a long dirt road or just fear driving in a Florida summer monsoon now have the opportunity to drive a cool muscle car.Ford GTEven those who have the $400K to purchase the Ford GT today cant get this 550 hp American supercar from the dealer right now. The line for it started two years ago when the concept car premiered in Detroit. So the waiting list now extends into 2018, but since the Ford GT is now officially in production, there will be a few for resale this year. Dont search the used car lots. And expect to pay more than half a million dollars for one. But for the right people, it will be absolutely worth it.Mazda MX5 Miata RFFor those who will never be in the Ford GT price bracket, the $32K Mazda Miata RF might be a fine substitution. This version doesnt alter the nicely balanced 155 hp 2.0-liter drivetrain, so it is still razor sharp. But what makes it worth paying thousands more than a comparable roadster version is the very cool disappearing top. Like a mini Porsche 911 Targa, watching the roof do its little electronic sym-phony is already worth the price of admission. And what you are left with is a flying buttress rear deck that erases the Miata cute image as people compare the fastback design to the best from Europe.Volkswagen AtlasA few weeks ago we mentioned how the midsize three-row crossover market is heating up because families have to keep bulky child seats longer than ever before. Volkswagen is diving head first into this market with the American-made Atlas. A beefy design and useful features will put it on many shopping lists. But what is the most interesting part is VWs commitment to a $30K base price. A decade ago they would have asked $10,000 more for a vehicle like this. The affordable price today is a major sign that Volkswagen is recognizing that being part of the mainstream also means offering value for money.Toyota CamryToyota has introduced a new version of its bread-n-b utter sedan. Its not the sexiest car that debuted in Detroit (sorry Toyota) but thats never been the Camrys goal. There will be plenty of marketing over the next few months talking about bold style and more driv-er-focused features. But what you really want to know is that its poised to be the same reliable appliance youve come to expect from the Camry. They promise more power while using less fuel, and the base price should remain in the low $20Ks. Consistency isnt always stimulating, but done right, its a winning formula.The road aheadAs a special side note, the true standout at the NAIAS was the driverless vehicle. Nearly every manufacturer had new autono-mous technology to showcase. Ford even went so far as to declare that they would be selling a new model without a steering wheel by 2021. So you will still need to stay in control for 2017. Just know that the car companies are working hard to get you out of the drivers seat.

The St. Louis Cardinals, and soon the Washington Nationals, and Houston Astros, and Atlanta Braveswill call this area home during spring training. The activity has stimulated several aspects of the community, including charity, tax dollars, and good old-fashioned fun.It has also brought success to the luxury home real estate industry. Just as a players journey from the minors to the MLB show is marked with cuts, call-ups, trades, and training, the process of “nding an oseason home can be a similar stressor. To make the process easier, the young baseball talent coming to the area has called upon realtors such as Holly Meyer Lucas, founder and team leader of the Meyer Lucas Group in Jupiter, Florida.Her “rm is a leading luxury and waterfront property realty group in the area and has become the go-to team for players, coaches, and sta coming to the Palm Beaches area. One reason for that is because of Meyer Lucass familiarity with the professional baseball lifestyle. Her husband is a professional baseball player and after having moved dozens of times through trades and training, she saw an opportunity and took a swing.This area has become a baseball hub over the years, with dozens of families moving here. Baseball families ”ock together, we all live the same oseason-in season yearly pattern and that alone creates a strong bond,Ž she explained. The professional athlete space is unique in real estate. A lot of traditional realtors dont understand how tight the timelines can be between seasons, for example, and arent used to having to act fast. Its dicult to fully understand the lifestyle unless youve lived it yourself.ŽMany realtors in the area have experience with highpro“le public “gures and celebrities, but working with professional baseball players represents a unique transaction. In these types of deals, there are multiple stakeholders and interested parties to appease, including agents, “nancial advisors, families, and friends. A successful realtor has to n avigate them all and act as liaison. An interesting twist unique to baseball is that many of the athletes themselves are millennials with very limited amounts of time to house-hunt and compare properties, but accustomed to making high-stakes decisions in short windows of time.I have to be their eyes and ears because most of the time they have to buy or rent sight-unseen. Most guys only get one o-day per month and limited time in the oseason,Ž Meyer Lucas explained. Its not always mega mansions, either. Some just want a low-key place they can call home, so I have to really listen and learn their expectations and set a level of service from the start. They might give me a laundry list of items, ask to see three listings, and then theyre ready to make a decision. In baseball, their contracts are all over the internet which can create a negotiation trap. I have to be strategic about 5IF.FZFS-VDBT(SPVQ.JMJUBSZ5SBJMr+VQJUFSr'my negotiation and ensure the other side doesnt catch wind of who the buyer is. Trust is huge.ŽMeyer Lucas recently sold a home to a client of Dana Coreys, a baseball agent of PSI Sports, and she quickly made a fan out of him. Shes completely professional but with a personal touch. She knows what ball players need and look for,Ž he said. She does her research on the speci“c guy.ŽTheres not a one-size-“ts-all template for this market, and having baseball-speci“c knowledge and experience has been a boon for Meyer Lucas. If she has to muscle past fans at spring training to get a player his house keys, shell do it. She also recommends being active in sports groups online and in the community, adding that she participates in many sports wivesŽ get-togethers.Maintaining a level of discreetness when working with such a high-pro“le clientele is crucial, and the greatest compliment Meyer Lucas has received is a referral between players. They know they can work with me or someone in my network,Ž she said. Im saved in a few agents phones just as the baseball realtor and will get calls asking O V C E CO for a realtor recommendation in cities all over the US.Ž O N U T G R If other area realtors are willing to play ball and “nd the right pitch, theyll likely “nd similar success.

Art returns at Continuum in West Palm Beach BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comArt, like life, is fleeting. To illustrate that, we offer Continuum WPB Arts. This temporary showcase of the work of Sou th Floridas talented art community pops up this year, its fourth, in CityPlace, 700 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach, near Anthropologie. Since 2014, more than 150 artists have been chosen to display their work. This year, 52 more artists from Brevard to MiamiDade counties will be featured, and all exhibited artwork will be for sale. What started as a labor of love three years ago by ATB Fine Artists & Designers LLCs husband and wife team, Anthony Burks and Trina Slade-Burks, along with art activ-ist Craig McInnis and other Palm Beach County artists, has grown into an anticipated addition to Art-PalmBeach and Art Synergy, both Jan. 19-22 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Continuum WPB Arts mission has always been to unite different artis-tic disciplines in ways that enhance the community. What sets Continuum apart, aside from its transient nature, from the bevy of art fairs and festivals to come to South Florida each season, is its intention to push the envelope, offering an edgier alternative and loos-ening the restriction on what is or isnt art. Unconventional mediums, motion graphics, fashion and even food as art are explored. In previous years, finding an empty space to pop upŽ in West Palm Beach was easier. The team could find conve-niently-located vacant space to occupy for the 10-day event, but that has become a nearly impossible feat, so for 2017 they were welcomed at CityPlace, just across the street from the Convention Center. The most popular event may be the Black Tie and Sneakers Fundraiser tak-ing place from 7 to 10 p.m. Jan. 19.

Next show is March 11-12. Info: www. floridaantiqueshows. com. Cost: $30 The skinny: Yo uve got to admire the Victorians for one thing, and one thing only: Their sense of whimsy. Who else would think to construct a heart-shaped pincushion of fleece and stick a dolls head on it. They did that with powder puffs and other accoutrements. The bisque head is German and the whole affair probably was made between 1890 and 1910 or so. At one time, it would have had a ribbon to hang it from a hook. Was it used for diaper pins? I dont know. But you have to admit its a fun piece that has oodles of whimsy. Q THE FIND: For nearly 20 years, there was one unanswered question in my family: What happened to my moms doll collection. You see, my great-grandmother was the ultimate shopper. She loved nothing more than to spend a day shopping in Indianapolis or Cincinnati. And if there was nothing she needed, she loved to buy things for others. My mother and my aunt were frequent recipients of her generosity and treasured the Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls their grandmother bought them. The painted bisque dolls were beautifully costumed in frocks evoking characters from history and fiction. Some were garbed in international dresses. And they had been carefully packed away when the family moved to Florida in 1958, only never to be seen again. That was until I came along.One year, while getting Christmas decorations down from my grandparents attic, I spied a hatbox. I opened it and there were the dolls. They had somehow survived the heat of 17 or 18 Florida summers and looked none the worse for it. They, along with the Madame Alexander my mom received for Christmas in 1948, started her on a new journey of collecting. Some 40 years later, her collection is one of the finest in Florida. My mom also is involved in the Fort Myers and Naples doll clubs, each of which has shows in the coming weeks. My friends in the West Palm Beach area also plan a show in the next few weeks. Yes, my mom will be there. Heres a schedule. Oh, yeah.

been working on her art collection purely as an investment and I will never forget the day she gleefully burst through our gallery doors exclaiming, I heard my artist died!Ž Nauseated, I tried to compose myself and discuss the financial impact on her col-lection upon the artists death. Sadly, most of her collection was kept under careful bubble wrap, hidden away in a humid con-trolled, coffin-like closet, never being seen by art enthusiasts. Fortunately, since then, I have found many artist advocates and collectors who appreciate the artwork for more than an investment. Recently, at the Society of the Four Arts exhibition, When Modern was Contempo-rary,Ž I learned about one of the 20th centu-rys primary collectors, Roy R. Neuberger, and his pioneering collection of American Modern Art. Collector, philanthropist and arts advocate, he was from a family of art collectors and grew up appreciating art. Once he learned the story of Vincent Van Gogh dying in poverty despite the subsequent high prices of his paintings, Neuberger made the decision to support artists while they were alive. Many of the artists in Neubergers collection are now big names, however at the time they were just finding their way and developing their styles but they definitely had a strong voice. In fact, Neuberger thoughtfully selected artists he felt had something important to say with their work. With his vow to collect from living artists, so that they could support themselves, he nurtured relationships with critics, art dealers and significant artists. His extraor-dinary collection includes artwork by such famous names as Georgia OKeeffe, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Stuart Davis, Alex-ander Calder and Lee Krasner, to mention a few. Neuberger kept true to his word, continuing his commitment to support living American artists, but expanded his passion to include lending out his collection to museums. Although Neuberger never sold any artwork in his collection for profit, he kept extensive records of all artwork he bought throughout his lifetime. Artifacts such as Neubergers Black BookŽ of collection records can be viewed in the exhibit show-ing his art collection. An interesting aspect of the exhibition were the architectural themes done in var-ied styles by different artists that range from an abstract metal sculpture to a bright painting of a barber shop. Upon first walking into the exhibit, the viewer is faced with two striking side-by-side paintings, both with architectural quality, but each seemingly different, but matching in boldness and style. The weighty red oil pierces the darkness of Joseph Stellas painting, Gas Tank,Ž and almost seems to taunt the brightness of the neighboring painting „ a bright Paris scene by Lyonel Feininger. One of Neubergers favorite paintings was Arthur Doves oil painting of a bridge and he kept the work in his personal perma-nent collection, explaining it is an impec-cable picture, close to being absolutely perfect.Ž Often referred to as Americas first abstract painter, Dove was first known as a commercial illustrator in New York for The Saturday Evening Post and Harpers Magazine before he centered himself as an American Modernist. From across the room, an unmistakable Jackson Pollock action painting screamed for attention, but I was drawn to the paint-ings neighbor created by his wife, Lee Krasner. The textured layers and movement of Krasners Burning CandlesŽ collage cre-ates a mosaic-like effect with beautiful flu-idity. Frustrated with her drawings hanging on the studio wall, the artist tore them all to shreds and preferred the view of the cast-off scraps of art on the floor and decided to collage them into a painting. With a rejuvenated view toward her past work, Krasner explained she was tearing a certain way and cutting a certain way, and it was going towards something „ destroying to recreate.Ž Just as Neuberger saw the importance of collecting from up-and-coming artists while they were alive, the significance of his collection is striking. The exhibition, with both the artwork and Neubergers artifacts, chronicles the passion of a true collectors heart and shows the development of an art movement that inspired future generations. Neuberger explained, I have not collected art as an investor would, I collect art because I love it.Ž Seeing Neubergers art collection at The Society of the Four Arts rejuvenated my faith in art collectors as true appreciators of the arts. The passion and compassion of one man set a goal to support artists work-ing to make a living back When Modern Was Contemporary.Ž Dont miss this chance to glimpse a time capsule of Modern Art on view through Jan. 29.

Norton welcomes the Year of the RoosterThe Norton Museum of Art is celebrating the arrival of the Year of the Rooster by hosting its third annual Chinese New Year party from noon to 8 p.m. Jan. 28. High-lights include a colorful dragon dance, DIY art activities, traditional Chinese music, curator presentations, lectures and fire-works over the Intracoastal Waterway. The Chinese celebrate the arrival of the new year with a spring festival that has people decorating their homes with red and gold banners, traditional representa-tions of happiness and prosperity. Another favorite tradition is exchanging gifts, often small red envelopes filled with lucky money.Ž They celebrate according to the Chinese zodiac, and 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th of 12 animal signs. Tradition says that all animal signs can reap the rewards of a rooster year by taking on traits of the rooster: Loyalty, commitment, hard work, and family values. The Norton has a strong connection with China. Its world-class collection of Chinese Art has grown to nearly 600 objects, including a 3,200-year-old marvel of bronze casting, a Ritual Wine Pouring Vessel (Guang) from the Shang dynasty. Other highlights include a painting by the Ming dynasty master Tang Yin titled The Nine Bends RiverŽ and one of the worlds finest pairs of 17th century lacquer cabi-nets. Fifteen-minute spotlight talks at 1, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45 p.m. have an art and natureŽ theme and will highlight these and other pieces in the collection. These talks will be repeated at 4, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45 p.m. Wang Fei, a renowned performer on the seven-stringed plucked zither called a guqin, will present a childrens music experience at 2 p.m. and will perform a recital for older audiences later in the day. Kids can also have fun making art of their Chinese zodiac animals at the DIY activities for kids from noon to 3 p.m. Guests can also practice intricate brush and ink art of Chinese calligraphy, learning the techniques and the correct sequence of strokes used to form characters. Lee Koon Hung Kung Fu returns to perform a dramatic and colorful dragon dance, an activity intended to bring good luck in the coming year. The martial arts group will do a lion dance as well.

PGAFrom page 1 FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 B9did shows at the Coral Springs Center for the Performing Arts and we did a show at what was the Cuillo Center on Clematis Street in West Palm (now the site of Palm Beach Dramaworks). We saw there was clear-ly a market we liked and an excuse not to be in Philadelphia and New York in the winter.Ž The PGA Arts Center s two theaters will seat 260 and 280 patrons respec-tively. A third space under consider-ation will seat about 160 and will be available for rentals within the next year. Mr. Roy said the landlord has done the basic renovations necessary to con-vert the space from movie theaters to live theatre performance spaces. We play in about 18 different markets across the country,Ž he said. Many of the theaters we play are converted movie theaters, which at some point were vaudeville houses. So this is what we do. These are the kinds of places that we play. You put up a stage, you have a backstage area, you build some dress-ing rooms, then you bring in $100,000 worth of lights and sound and you have a theater. And well be putting a half a million dollars into the projects of these two shows were about to open.Ž The PGA Arts Centers first production „ projected to open for previews on Jan. 25 and is currently slated for a nine-week run, closing March 26 „ will be WaistWatchers The Musical,Ž local playwright Alan Jacobsons light-heart-ed look at four women dealing with food, friendship, l ove, life and sex. Brad Zimmermans My Son the Waiter: A Jewish TragedyŽ will begin a seven-week run in the second theater from Feb. 2 until March 19. Ticket prices will range between $45 and $65, with dis-counts to groups of 12 or more. We mainly stick with musicals and comedies,Ž Mr. Roy said. Thats what we do. We want to produce shows year-round here. We plan to take the pulse of the market once we open our first two shows and then well be able to decide how strong our following will be, to continue on.Ž Future shows planned for the the-aters include Old Jews Telling Jokes,Ž a revue that pays tribute to some of the giants of the com-edy world and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present, and Cooking With The Calamari Sisters,Ž a spoof on food programs, public-access TV and Italian life and cuisine. Throughout the U.S. weve found markets and theaters where we can go back, year after year,Ž Mr. Roy said. As a company, were always acquiring new shows and theaters to put them in. Once we have new shows running, then we look for new places to take them. This fits nicely into our mission of taking these Off-Broadway comedies and musi-cals into the markets. Theres a dearth of medium-sized theaters with 250 to 400 seats, so when you have a chance to develop your own theater „ as were doing in Palm Beach Gardens „ thats what you do. And Dana and I like doing that.Ž Q „ The PGA Arts Center is at 4076 PGA Blvd. in Palm Beach Gardens (just east of Interstate 95).

B12 WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY THEATER REVIEWWho in his right mind would try to remount a production of the Broadway smash hit The ProducersŽ? Frequent theatergoers have seen it several times. Any fresh spin would violate a fond memory of the original. Who could equal the landmark perfor-mances of Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick? And the dirty secret is that its a deceptively difficult show to excel at, requiring a rarely-found confluence of God-given charisma and hard-won skill. Few people talk about the lacklus-ter editions they wish they hadnt seen, especially compared to the original. Even the 2005 movie was a flop. Who in their right minds would do it? The Maltz Jupiter Theatre, and thank the theater gods they did. Every cherished bit that creator Mel Brooks and director Susan Stro-man invented in 2001 is there to relish again „ from the old ladies dancing with their walkers to Brooks famously dubbed line in Springtime For HitlerŽ to Hitler sitting on the edge of the apron crooning to the audience like Garland at the Palace. But director Mark Martino, choreographer Shea Sullivan, musical director Michael Larsen and a cast of zanies have injected a different vibe that makes the show their own, just as valid and just as hilarious. The heroes are less leeringly larcenous (which does rob the show of a bit of its anarchical ethos) but they are easier to embrace. Above all, this is one of most joyously over-the-top energetic renditions ever mounted, spotlighting more physical comedy than youve seen in some time (unless you saw Matt Loehr last month in Me and My Girl,Ž and here its every-one in the cast). Just one example is any moment from Mark Price as the nebbish accountant Leo Bloom. His question mark hunched shoulders and deer-in-the-headlights expression in the early scenes give way to an assured if imagined savoire faire in his dream vaudeville dance in I Want To Be A Producer.Ž The other key asset is a carbon arc searchlights worth of intensity and energy pervading the show from the blindingly bright overture to the hal-lelujah finales of both acts. In scene after scene, production number after production number and especially the introduction of character after charac-ter, the meld of freshness and the famil-iarity just never stop. For instance, the krazy Kraut playwright Franz Liebkind is played here, not by some average looking schlub, but by Roland Rusinek, who gives us a hefty beady/bug-eyed fruitcake who hasnt shaved in two weeks, a mountain of a nutball dressed in lederhosen and a Prussian spiked hel-met. Add in his booming baritone bass more likely found in opera and Franz is a unique creation. All of which is putting off the linchpin issue: Can Lenny Wolpe, the vet-eran stage and television actor whose name you dont know but whose face you do, create his own Max Bialystock, the perennial failed Broadway producer made famous by indelible performances by Lane on Broadway and Zero Mostel in Brooks 1967 film? Can Price erase memories of great performances by Broderick and Gene Wilder? Amazingly, the answer is yes. Other than the cadences in Brooks sitcom-honed humor, neither actor echoes a shred of their predecessors. This is crucial because very few of Lane and Brodericks replacements on Broadway or the road ever came close to creating that alchemical magic that no one can explain. Wolpe, notable for his Kilroy-was-here mensch of a face and strong voice, never flags in his enthusiastic implementation of every comedy trope hes learned over the decades. For Wolpe, Maxs primary trait and virtue is his undeterred resil-ience despite every rational reason to doubt a resurrection. That makes Max an admirable and lovable clown, even a victim who never acknowledges defeat. What is missing (and this is a mixed blessing) is that slight whiff of sleaze that Lane and Mostel exuded. They knew they were crooked, but saw it as a justifiable survival technique. That gave the film and the musical that last twist of nose thumbing at society that was at the heart of the work „ and its absent here. But Wolpes delivery of the Danny Kaye-class patter songs is not just funny, but every word is discernible. Price, who played Carmen Ghia a few months ago at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, is a wonderfully hangdog buttoned-down introvert who grows in stature. Unlike Broderick and some other predecessors, Price genuinely can sing and dance, offering a no-excuses exhibition including Astaire-like gliding duets with Ulla and tap dances with the ensemble. The two do have some chemistry, if not the preternatural magic that Lane and Broderick had. It helps that Wolpe is at least a head or so taller than Price, making for the classic image of a vaudeville comedy duo. When they embrace, the height difference is inher-ently funny. The supporting cast and ensemble is equally outstanding, including the sexy tall Elyse Collier as Ulla whose dances with Leo often find his head near her bosom; the aforementioned Rusinek, whom you wont recognize as the cultured suspect in last seasons The MousetrapŽ; Seth Tucker as the funniest Carmen Ghia weve seen; and last but not least Michael Brian Dunn, who whether playing the outlandish director Roger Debris or Roger as Hit-ler, is delightfully chewing every shred of scenery not nailed down. Martino, who helmed the Maltzs outstanding Les Misrables,Ž and his frequent collaborator, Sullivan, inject scores, probably hundreds of their own bits of comedy throughout. A quick nod to conductor Larsen, who not only melded the voices, but who re-orchestrated the score originally written for 22 musicians so that it could be played by nine fine musicians and still retain the bright, brassy showbiz pizzazz that powers the entire evening. As always, the Maltzs creative and technical team is peerless. While many of the design elements echo those of the original production, they are flawlessly executed. You have to love how the old ladies (played by an inspired male and female ensemble) are wearing crimson underpants that they flash at several opportunities.„ The ProducersŽ runs through Jan. 10-29 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

Best advice: Check them all out and see which offers what you really want. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Continue to tread water before you even consider plunging into something that never seemed quite right. Some facts will soon emerge that can help you make a decision.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY jan Costa brings Mediterranean influence to EsplanadeCosta a new Mediterranean restaurant, opens this week in Palm Beach in the Esplanade shops on Worth Avenue. Chef David Valencia who has worked recently at the Meat Market in Palm Beach, and at Catch in Miami, will head the kitchen team as executive chef. The emphasis will be on coastal Spanish, Moroccan, Greek, and Italian dishes, according to Mr. Valencia. Charred octopus, chicken tangines „ a Moroccan favorite „ and salt-baked branzino are featured on the starting menu, which will change with the sea-sons. Owners Sasha and Danielle Bennemann are involved throughout the restaurant „ a modern, casual-elegant space with two bars and open kitchen. The space was originally planned for Theos but the restaurant deal fell apart before a build-out. I ts housed a number of other eateries, including the Mexican Cha-chas Gigis and long ago, Caf LEurope Craft cocktails to match the foods and a wine cellar with a dedicated wine program are in place. In a pre-opening release, Sasha Bennemann promised a unique experience to Palm Beach. We cant wait to show the community what weve been work-ing on,Ž he said. Our passion for food and personalized service will shine through in this truly unique concept unlike anything existing in Palm Beach today.Ž The restaurant is part of Expermiar a restaurant concept and brand manage-ment agency associated with the Big Time Restaurant Group Coniglio Restaurants the Buccan Group and Titou Hospitality They represent a number of noted restaurants in Palm Beach County.

In briefComing soon: Lillys Table in Lake Park. The gastropub and coffeehouse is in final stages of hiring and outfitting; an opening is planned within a month. Stay tuned for more on this one.ƒ A new taqueria we wrote about a few months back has finally opened in the back of the old Abbey Road plaza. Taco Chula offers up fresh ingredients and clas-sic Mexican drinks, which make this a standout for quick foods. Q CUISINE LATEST FILMS‘20th Century Women’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesA movie as well written and acted as 20th Century WomenŽ must be seen. It must be seen by teenage boys who dont know how to act around girls. By teenage girls who allow peer pressure to dictate their actions. By middle-aged men and women who are lost souls in search of themselves. And by parents who are doing their best in a world thats constantly changing. It also must be seen by anyone who enjoys engaging dramas. Writer/director Mike Mills, whose first film, BeginnersŽ (2010), was based on his relationship with his father, this time tells his mothers story. Its 1979, and 15-year-old Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) is growing up in Santa Barbara, Calif., without a father. His mother, Dorothea (Annette Bening, great as usual), is liberal and loving, though ineffectual in certain regards. For a time she hopes her tenant/handy-man William (Billy Crudup) can be a positive influence on Jamie, but soon realizes they have little in common. So to help her son become a man, Dorothea enlists her tenant Abbie (Greta Gerwig) and a teenage neighbor, Julie (Elle Fanning). Abbie, 25, has cancer and is into punk rock. And Julie already has captivated young Jamie; hes madly in love with her „ even though he doesnt know what real love is yet. All three women have a profound effect on Jamie, each in vastly different ways. Dorothea had Jamie when she was 40, and now at 55 openly admits to not understanding his genera-tion. She also treats him like the man of the house. In one scene, she asks him to be home in case Abbie needs anything after seeing her oncologist. When he asks what to do if theres bad news, she tells him whatever it is he can handle it, and points out that men always try to fix things for women when all they need to do is just be there. Im not a man, Im just me,Ž he says, clearly uncomfort-able with what his mother is asking of him and the association shes giving him with manhood, which he knows he isnt ready for. Well, yes and no,Ž she responds with a sly smile, and we know shes right: Hes too young and immature for full responsibility, but he needs to learn these things to become the man hes capable of being. Abbies influence is more cultural. She introduces Jamie to her music, teaches him how to talk to women and empower himself, and gives him femi-nist textbooks to read. Then theres Julie, who teaches Jamie about heartache and yearning. Shes a lost soul who values his friendship and their closeness, but she refuses to have sex with him. Live and learn, young man. 20th Century WomenŽ is also about the zeitgeist of the era, including cul-tural artifacts, values and generational conflicts consistent with the late 70s/early 80s. When these artifacts combine with Roger Neills lively musical score, the frequent use of fast motion, garish costumes and a production design that feels old even for the 70s, we get the full scope of whats molding Jamie into who he will become. Furthermore, its in these details that the film feels lived in, like an old photo that brings up fine memories of a time gone by. Conveying this essence is extraordinarily difficult, but Mr. Mills succeeds in a wonderfully endearing way. Q dan >> Greta Gerwig and Bille Crudup also star in “Jackie,” though they don’t share screen time. VALENCIA COURTESY PHOTOSABOVE: Costa is a casual-elegant space with two bars and an open kitchen.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Spanakopita The Place: Chris Taverna, Boynton Lakes Plaza, 4774 Congress Ave. (at Hypoluxo Road), Boynton Beach; 223-2869 or The Price: $12.95 The Details: The opening of Chris Taverna at Hypoluxo Road and Congress Avenue a couple of years ago was one of the happier events for lovers of Greek cuisine. The restaurant has been packed with patrons every time I have visited, and its original location, at Lantana and Jog roads, remains a popular destination. Going to that original spot was a drive for those along the coast who have a craving for Hellenic delicacies, like this spinach pie. It had light, fluffy pastry surrounding creamy, feta-packed spinach. The crisp, fresh side Greek salad that accompanied was a meal in its own right. Weve also enjoyed the grilled chicken and the tender, marinated chunks of pork in the souvlaki. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Co -workers at Brio Tuscan Grille at CityPlace will tell you Executive Chef Freddy Sevilla is always on the move. Chef Freddy never sits down,Ž Chef Sevilla says, quoting those who work with him. His steady pace keeps him slim and trim, although he admits to working out when he can and he enjoys biking and paddle boarding with his wife, Erin, and daughters. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native joined the Brio chain in 2008 as executive chef for Brio at Palm Beach Gardens. His passion for food, learning and develop-ment helped him to increase the flow of restaurants traffic, productivity, profit and positive guest feedback within five months. He did so well in Palm Beach Gardens that he was offered the executive chef position at Brio Tampa „ International Plaza, and later at Brio at The Shops at Pembroke Gardens in Pembroke Pines and The Shops at Boca Center in Boca Raton. From there he was tapped to get things cooking for the CityPlace loca-tion, where he currently reigns. The 7,354-square-foot restaurant at CityPlace seats 124 guests and has al fresco dining for 100 on its outdoor ter-race, as well as a full-service bar that seats an additional 55. All in all, Chef Sevilla has racked up more than 20 years in the restaurant industry, starting as a dishwasher at a small Chinese eatery in Brooklyn. He worked his way up the ladder in the business at restaurants that include Coz-zolis, Romanos Macaroni Grill and The Cheesecake Factory. Its rewarding,Ž Sevilla says, the idea of making something from scratch. And then having people enjoy it.Ž At Brio Tuscan Grille at CityPlace, he is responsible for all back-of-the-house operations including food quality, team development, profit and loss per-formance and sanitation standards, as well as all banquet culinary operations for private events. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with up and coming cooks. I like to teach because when you teach you learn, and I want to keep on learning,Ž the West Palm Beach resident says. As a chef, Im required to wear many hats „ from culinarian, manager, repair-man, counselor or host „ on any given day,Ž he says. Each day is truly a new experience. We strive to staff our res-taurant with the best in the industry. We surround ourselves with the right people, and give them the tools to be successful in providing our guests with exceptional food and service.Ž While he likes everything on the menu, his current favorite dish is the crab-stuffed shrimp and lobster tail. I love seafood,Ž Chef Sevilla says. But he is not a fisherman. That may change soon, however, since his daughters, Cora, 9, and Ann, 8, have been pestering him to take them fishing. He likes the idea. Now its just a matter of finding the time. Freddy SevillaAge: 43 Original hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y., but I had lived in so many places that really I feel I am from everywhere. Restaurant: Brio Tuscan Grille at CityPlace, 550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach. Hours of operation are Sun-day-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Mission: At Brio Tuscan Grille, we strive to be the best Italian restaurant company in America and we want our people to know if they work with the best we will develop lifelong loyal guests by providing the highest quality of food and service to each meal to each guest each and every day.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYREACHING PALM BEACH COUNTY’S MOST AFFLUENT READERS Florida Weekly’s monthly guide to Looking, Feeling and Living Better living living healthyJANUARY 2017Helping Parkinson’s patients | 2 The right shoe can improve health | 5 Dealing with atrial fibrillation | 7Thanks to advances in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and follow-up care, more people than ever before are surviving. In the United States, more than 14.5 million people are alive today after being diagnosed with cancer. Cancer survivors face a unique set of issues and challenges after completing treatment. Cancer and its treatment can have long-lasting effects on your body. Physi-cal, emotional, and financial hardships may persist for years. Jupiter Medical Center s Survivorship Program was created to empower patients surviving all types of cancer by offering support, edu-cation and resources in the years after completing cancer treatment. The idea for this program came directly from survivors who felt that they needed additional support coping with a wide variety of symptoms after treat-ment,Ž says Cathy Marinak, ARPN, MSN, AOCN, oncology nurse practitioner at Jupiter Medical Center. Often when a patient finishes their cancer treatment, they feel alone and dont know where to turn next. Our goal is to provide them with professional information that will help them integrate care after cancer.Ž There are two very important components of the program „ a lecture series and support group meetings. Both are open to any cancer patient, caregiver, family member or friend. The lectures series is specifically designed to address issues relevant to cancer survivors and their families and is presented by a medical professional in lecture format without any worry about the perceived pressure to shareŽ as one might feel in a traditional sup-port group environment. Lecture topics include fear of recurrence, cognitive dysfunction and fatigue, pain and neu-ropathy, body image changes, meno-pausal symptoms like heat flashes and sleep disturbances, fertility, anxiety/depression, maintaining healthy life-style and spirituality. For those looking for additional encouragement in a more traditional format, we offer a support group for those living with all types of cancer. There are also groups specific to breast cancer, young women (45 years of age and younger) who have been diagnosed with cancer and caregivers. Support groups meet regularly and offer peer-to-peer support and open discussion of topics similar to those in the lecture series and more. Support groups are facilitated by Jennifer Schosheim, MSW, Oncology Social Worker at Jupiter Med-ical Center. Individualized counseling is also available. The Survivorship Lecture Series began in January in the Raso Education Center at Jupiter Medical Center, 1226 S. Old Dixie Highway in Jupiter. The March lecture scheduled for Tuesday, March 14, will discuss Fatigue,Ž and is being presented by Stephen Syl-vester, DPT, CSCS, CCET, director of the Cancer Related Fatigue Program, Palm Beach Atlantic University. Regis-tration for lectures is encouraged. To register for a lecture, visit or to request more information about support groups, counseling or the Survivorship Pro-gram, call (561) 263-3659.

Setting the Gold Standard in Orthopedic Care 3360 Burns Road € Palm Beach Gardens € Caregiving for Parkinson’s takes patience and perception T he prevalence of Parkinson s in our society today continues to grow as people are living lon-ger. How can we improve the quality of life for people struggling with Parkinsons disease and aging simulta-neously? Obviously when Parkinsons symptoms begin to manifest themselves and a diagnosis is made, changes in the home environment and the daily routine need to occur. More importantly, due to the daily vari-ability of the dis-ease in each indi-vidual, monitoring of those symptoms and their impact on the timing of meals and medica-tions become vital! Combined with the safety risk due to falls, and the need for coordinating multidisciplined therapies, things can quickly become overwhelming for the patient as well as the caregiving spouse or adult children challenged with these issues. Often patients and their families dealing with Parkinsons Disease (PD) seek long term homecare as an immediate solution once a serious fall occurs, with the subsequent hospital visit, time spent in rehab, and finally the transition back to home-sweet-home.Ž Tremors, rigid-ity, loss of balance, depression, cogni-tive impairment, and other PD symp-toms can make life increasingly difficult for those challenged with PD, but can become even more frustrating to deal with for family members who do not know when to lend a helping hand or when to hold back. An educated and experienced caregiver can work with the PD patient and family members to ensure a successful situation at home with an optimal outc ome. As the disease progresses, so do the obstacles: making a meal, taking a bath, even writing a letter can be a challenge for Par-kinsons patients and, of course, the risk for falls gradually grows more seri-ous. A helping hand to encour-age exercise and keep a watch-ful eye on the progression of symptoms, medications and their side effects can have a tremen-dous impact on the daily health and wellness of the patient, as well as protect their safety. Training and experience in emergency response, as well as PD appropriate education for caregivers dealing with Parkinsons patients can prove invaluable. Of the utmost concern is safety while walking, to prevent falls and cut down on hospital or rehab readmits. You cannot rush, push or pull someone with PD no matter how frustrated you get „ realize they are even more frustrated than you are! Of course, safety precautions also include being alert to medication inter-actions, dosage and side effects. Diligence regarding timetables for meals and medication is a must, and attention to nutrition and hydration is important. On time, every timeŽ is a crucial concept for Parkinsons: Pills must be organized and reminders set for when they should be taken. Patience with daily communication is important because speech is often slow or slurred. Rest periods should be encouraged just as much as exercise. Depression and withdrawal are common, so socialization and emotional support become imperative. Schedule regular visits to a local Parkinsons support group, and coordinate along with regular visits to the physician and therapist! The symptoms of PD are sometimes mistaken as the symptoms of the nor-mal aging process. If identified early on, the progression of PD can be manage-able through therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes like increased exercise and mobility. There is no cure, but research has shown that PD patients who take control of the disease and their treatment, instead of letting it con-trol them, can enhance their daily qual-ity of life and feeling of independence! An educated caregiver with patience and perception, can make a contribu-tion as well, so you and your loved ones can thrive, not just survive.Ž Additional educational resources are available online at Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches has a refreshing approach to homecare relationships. Let our angelsŽ help you or a loved one recover from illness, acci-dent or surgery, or assist with the care and companionship needed to remain comfortably and safely at home while aging in place or dealing with the daily demands of living with Alzheimers or Parkinsons diseases.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single failing or missing tooth as well as mul-tiple failing or missing teeth. In many cases, Dr. Jay Ajmo can replace all of a patients teeth with dental implants.Who is a candidate for dental implants?Most adults at any age who want to replace missing teeth are candidates. They are used to permanently replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth and have become the optimum choice for many patients requiring tooth replacement and dental restoration. Implants also serve as secure attachments for removable dental prostheses such as full dentures or partial plates.What does a complete dental implant procedure involve?The process in our office has become simplified because we use state-of-the art techniques to surgically place and complete-ly restore your implants, all in our specially designed cosmetic and implant facility in Palm Beach Gardens. Well schedule your implant surgery in our on-site surgi-cal suite, where youll be kept comfortable and relaxed with a sedative, if necessary. Dr. Ajmo will place small, biocompatible implant posts precise-ly where your teeth are missing in your jaws. The same day, in many cases, he will attach abutments and temporary crowns to the implants. Your mouth will heal over the next few weeks and the implants will fuse to your jawbone over several months (a process called osseointegration). After the implants are securely fused to your jawbone, Dr. Ajmo will custom design permanent res-torations that will look, feel and function like your real teeth. Your personal treatment plan might include a single tooth replacement with a cosmetic porcelain crown, the replacement of multiple teeth with permanent bridge-work or a full set of replacement teeth. Dr. Ajmo also offers a variety of implant-retained denture options that firmly and securely support removable appliances without the use of messy glues or denture adhesives. To ensure your comfort during implant procedures, we offer a variety of relaxing sedation techniques, including mild oral and IV sedation. Since Dr. Ajmo is board certi-fied in IV sedation and is highly skilled in all of these comprehensive implant services, you can be certain youre getting the most comfortable care possible while feeling con-fident that youre receiving the absolute best in modern dentistry.

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 thats conquered in a day, month or year. It is a disease that must be fought every day for the rest of ones 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 „ 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 bodys 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. At Youthful Balance Medical Center, we can use medications and diet tools not available in commercial or self-directed diets. Call Youthful Balance Medical Center today and let us come up with a weight-loss plan together! Q Jennifer Nicholson Nurse Practitioner Youthful Balance 10887 N.

If you experi-ence your heart banging against your chest or skipping beats you re most likely experiencing arrhythmia. Arrhythmia is an irregu-lar rate or rhythm of the heartbeat, where your heart can beat too fast or slow. This is a type of atrial fibrillation (AFib), when disorganized electrical signals cause the hearts two upper chambers to fibrillate or contract very fast. Millions of Americans are affected by this disease and the number increas-es each year. Men are more likely to experience this condition than women. Its also more common among whites than any other race. Other risk factors include high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, lung disease, drinking large amounts of alcohol and sleep apnea.SymptomsSymptoms include palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, confu-sion, sweating, fatigue and weakness when exercising. There are different types of AFib classifications and all of them increase your risk of stroke.TreatmentsSometimes AFib may not cause any signs or symptoms, so its important to see your doctor for an annual physi-cal. An electrocardiogram is a test that records the hearts electrical activity and may be used during your physi-cal. It shows you how fast your heart is beating, whether you have a steady or irregular heartbeat and the strength and timing of passing electrical signals through each part of your heart. Treatments for AFib include medications, nonsurgical procedures and sur-gical procedures. Medicines for AFib may be given through injection or pills until symptoms are controlled. Nonsurgical procedures include electrical cardioversion and radiofrequency abla-tion treatments, both used in attempts of returning the heart back to its regular beat. The surgical procedure involves implanting a small electrical device in the body with wires to the heart called a pacemaker. This device helps sense the hearts rhythm and assists in regulating its speed.Home TipsExercise! Regular physical activity is important in reducing your risk of AFib. Dont smoke or drink and limit or avoid caffeine intake. Also, make sure to eat a heart-healthy diet, low in salt intake and saturated fats to manage your cholester-ol levels. Dont allow your heart to miss a beat by taking the right precautions to ensure a long, healthy life. When it comes to caring for your heart, you need someone you can trust. For more than three decades, the Heart & Vascular Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has delivered advanced cardiac care to our commu-nity.
