Old Dixie Hwy. l Jupiter, FL 33458Celebrating National Healthcare Volunteer WeekThank you volunteers and the entire Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary for putting your hearts into everything you do for our patients, the medical center and our community!From all of us at Jupiter Medical Center. COMMENTARYStand your groundLawmakers in Tallahassee are half-way through the 60-day legislative session. The states annual business agenda is sup-posed to be completed by May 5, but dont count on it. The House and Senate have not yet reached agreement on major legis-lative proposals pending; and the deadline is fast approaching to get the states future year budget approved. The final spending plan is jointly negotiated between the two chambers and must be blessed and signed by the governor before the beginning of the states fiscal year on July 1. The annual rite of passing a balanced state budget is the one compulsory responsibility our legislature is bound by law to perform. Last year, they didnt get it done during the regular session. The negotiations between the chambers to reach a compromise blew up. A $4 billion disagreement soured the deal. Lawmakers in the House bitterly opposed the idea of funding Medicaid expansion. They threw a hissy-fit and adjourned without so much as a fare-thee-well to the Senate. The impasse forced the governors intercession and a special session to resolve the incomplete. The annual budget got done, but not without the taint of bad behavior flavoring the result. The only thing worse than a disgruntled legislator is an ingrown toenail. They made everybody suffer. Medicaid expansion died for good, its demise a casualty of the infighting. Hundreds of thousands of poor and low-income Floridians were left to seek last-resort medical care in the emergency rooms of charity hospitals. Billions in fed-eral revenue to subsidize Medicaid were turned away. The beneficiary most profit-ing from the lawmakers debacle was the Grim Reaper. He now collects his due from among the states most medically vulner-able citizens. Optimism is in short supply things will go more smoothly this time. Although the amount of revenue on the table remains roughly the same, about $80 billion, there is a $2 billion chasm yawning between the House and Senate versions of the budgets proposed. Everyone, including the gover-nor, wants it their way or the highway. Bones of contention include reductions in state spending to promote tourism and down-sizing the millions in tax-funded subsidies paid to private businesses, the construction of a reservoir to curb and clean the Lake Okeechobee discharges cre-ating havoc on South Floridas Gulf and the Atlantic coasts, reforms to Floridas higher education system and bills to proliferate guns in ever-more public spaces. There also is talk of abolishing home rule,Ž so the state can preempt local gov-ernments from regulating issues in their own backyards and there is a bill drafted with the assistance of Florida Power & Light that allows it to charge ratepayers for speculative energy ventures in Oklahoma. If approved, it conveniently reverses a prior ruling by Floridas Public Service Commission that nixed the idea. Among the bad ideas, first prize goes to a proposal to amend the infamous stand your groundŽ law, so people accused of murderous intentions have more leeway to claim self-defense and immunity.Ž It shifts the burden of proof from shooters to the people shot and left either dead or alive. It gets worse: When it comes to protecting and conserving the states environ-ment, never has a state been so ill-served as is Florida by its own state Legislature. Its been two decades since Florida first got serious about the environment. It started by funding programs to enable the state to purchase, conserve and protect in perpetuity Floridas most environmentally sensitive lands and water resources. Flor-ida Forever, established in 2000, received $300 million annually for its first nine years. Along came the Great Recession. The program took a hit. Its funding plummeted to zero. Yet, despite Floridas economy re-bounding, the Legislature continued to starve the program. By 2014, Floridians voters had had enough. They approved by a 75 percent margin Amendment One to the states Constitution. It confronts the state Legis-latures hostility and challenges its parsi-mony toward the programs goals, estab-lishing a state-funded war chest for land acquisition and water conservation. The resources come from an existing source of revenue generated by the documentary stamp tax. It will generate about $10 billion in revenue over the next 20 years. Lawmakers are brazenly ignoring the peoples mandate, instead budgeting and allocating the revenue for purposes incon-sistent with the law. The misappropria-tions produce savingsŽ in general revenue to otherwise spend on a porkers wish list. The cheat is nothing short of robbery of Amendment One money by legislative misappropriation. Once upon a time, law-makers might have been tarred and feath-ered for such an egregious abuse of power. But alas, civil society has intervened. At last word, the Legislature proposes to cut the budget of the Department of Envi-ronmental Protection by more than 25 per-cent and completely ax funding for Florida Forever. Its an affront that demands a voters reply. No one is more entitled to defend Floridas environment from the duplicity and avarice of its own lawmakers than Amendment One supporters. Its time to stand your ground. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian whose professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

Donald Trump is making good on at least one of his many campaign promises: pro-moting unfettered police power. His point person on these goals, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is leading the Justice Department through a tectonic shift, abandoning Obama-era efforts to protect civil and voting rights, threaten-ing more deportations and resuscitating the decades-old, failed War on Drugs.Ž This week, Sessions told the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Unfortunately, in recent years ... law enforcement as a whole has been unfair-ly maligned and blamed for the crimes and unacceptable deeds of a few bad actors.Ž Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, said on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, What we see with Attorney General Jeff Sessions is an effort to basically take us back in time ... this is a person whos stuck in the 80s, and in some instances, stuck in the 50s.Ž Ifill continued, Its a kind of a retro view of law enforcement and policing in which hes attempting to wipe out the last 30 years of progress in this country, to the extent that its been made „ the last four years, in particular, where weve really been focused on the issue of policing reform.Ž Much of the recent efforts emanate from the summer of civil unrest in Fer-guson, Missouri, in 2014. There, on Aug. 9, an unarmed African-American teen-ager, Michael Brown, was shot dead by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, sparking months of protest. By March 2016, the city of Ferguson and the Jus-tice Department, then under Attorney General Loretta Lynch, entered into a consent decree with the shared recog-nition that the ability of a police depart-ment to protect the community it serves is only as strong as the relationship it has with that community.Ž Before long, right-wing groups like The Heritage Foundation began refer-ring to The Ferguson Effect,Ž claiming that consent decrees or any other type of judicial or civilian oversight of police actually increases crime by tying the hands of law enforcement. This argu-ment has no basis in fact, but, like many of the policies being pursued by the Trump administration, now appears to be guiding official policy. After the death of another young African-American man, Freddie Gray, who suffered serious spinal-cord inju-ries while in Baltimore police custody in April 2015, more civil unrest and protest led to another consent decree. Sessions attempted to delay implemen-tation of that agreement, but last week a federal judge dismissed the motion. In a March 31 memorandum, Sessions instructed the Justice Department to review all existing or contemplated consent decrees,Ž signaling his intention to undermine the more than 100 such accords agreed to under the Obama administration. The statute that governs these investigations and consent decrees ... the Law Enforcement Misconduct Statute, 42 U.S.C. 14141 ... was enacted as part of the 1994 crime bill as a result of the Rodney King assault and the acquittal of those officers in the first trial,Ž Ifill explained. [It] authorizes the attorney general to investigate unconstitutional policing, to engage in these consent decrees. To the extent that he [Sessions] is a law-and-order attorney general, this is a law hes willing to completely ignore.Ž Norm Stamper knows a thing or two about policing. A 34-year veteran officer, the former Seattle police chief is author of the book To Protect and Serve: How to Fix Americas Police.Ž The Seattle Police Department is under a consent decree, and Stamper says it has done wonders to improve the situation there: Theres been a 60 percent reduction in use of force by Seattle police officers. There has been a dramatic decrease in the use of firearms, Tasers and batons.Ž Here is the kicker: Police officers themselves, through the president of the Police Officers Guild, are saying, Were grateful that were at this stage of our progress. The crime rate has continued to go down. Officer injuries are either flat or dropping. So theres been no so-called Ferguson effect or de-policing.Ž About Sessions, Stamper says: Hes clearly in lockstep with his boss. ... He is clearly an apologist for the worst kind of policing in this country.Ž Longtime civil-rights attorney Sherrilyn Ifill sums up, This is what Attorney General Sessions will unleash ... if we are not vigilant and resistant.Ž Q „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,400 stations. She is the co-author, with Denis Moynihan and David Goodman, of the newly published New York Times best-seller Democracy Now!: 20 Years Covering the Movements Changing America.Ž The Russian stooge The circumstantial evidence is mounting that the Kremlin succeeded in infil-trating the U.S. government at the high-est levels. How else to explain a newly elected president looking the other way after an act of Russian aggression? Agreeing to a farcically one-sided nuclear deal? Mercilessly mocking the idea that Rus-sia represents our foremost geopolitical foe? Accommodating the illicit nuclear ambitions of a Russian ally? Welcoming a Russian foothold in the Middle East? Refusing to provide arms to a sovereign country invaded by Russia? Diminishing our defenses and pursuing a Moscow-friendly policy of hostility to fossil fuels? All of these items, of course, refer to things said or done by President Barack Obama. To take them in order: He reset with Russia shortly after its clash with Georgia in 2008. He concluded the New START agreement with Moscow that reduced our nuclear forces but not theirs. When candidate Mitt Romney warned about Russia in the 2012 cam-paign, Obama rejected him as a Cold War relic. The president then went on to forge an agreement with Russias ally Iran to allow it to preserve its nuclear program. During the red-line fiasco, he eagerly grasped a lifeline from Russia at the price of accepting its interven-tion in Syria. He never budged on giving Ukraine lethalŽ weapons to defend itself from Russian attack. Finally, Obama cut U.S. defense spending and cracked down on fossil fuels, a policy that Russia wel-comed since its economy is dependent on high oil prices. Put all of this together, and its impossible to conclude anything other than that Obama was a Russian stooge, and not out of any nefarious dealings, but out of his own naivete and weakness. The cost of Obamas orientation toward Russia has now become clearer. When he pulled up short from enforcing his red line, an agreement with the Rus-sians to remove Bashar Assads chemical weapons became the fig leaf to cover his retreat. This deal was obviously defi-cient, but Obama officials used clever language to give the impression that it had removed all chemical weapons from Syria. Never mind that Assad still used chlorine gas to attack his population „ exploiting a grievous loophole „ and that evidence piled up that Assad was cheating more broadly. The Russians eagerly covered for Assad because hes their client. What was the Obama administrations excuse? It effectively made itself a liar for the Russians at the same time Moscow bol-stered the Assad regime we said had to go, smashed the moderate opposition we were trying to create and sent a destabi-lizing refugee flow into Europe. With his secretary of state and U.N. ambassador hitting Russia hard over the Assad gas attack and Trumps strike chal-lenging Russias position, the admin-istration looks to be adopting a hard-headed attitude without bothering with a doomed reset first. Even if Obama eventually got tougher on Russia „ imposing sanctions after the Ukraine invasion and sending con-tingents of U.S. troops to countries near Russia „ he never entirely shed his reflex toward accommodation. No matter what conspiracy theorists might say, theres nothing to suggest anything untoward about Obamas relationship with Russia. But based on the record alone, you might have suspicions.

Q EARTHFrom page 1 Kitten season is about to start in South Florida and whether its tomor-row or next week, theres a very good chance youll discover a tiny newborn kitten outside. Her life depends on what you do next. First, when you see newborn kittens, resist the urge to take them to a shelter. Kittens less than 4 weeks old have little chance of survival if separated from their mothers and taken to a shelter. In fact, cats and kittens are the most at-risk animals for euthanasia in Palm Beach County. Most discoveries of newborn kittens dont call for human assistance. No intervention is generally best until kit-tens can eat on their own. Before scooping them up, please remember the phrase mother knows best.Ž The kittens best chance for survival is staying with Mom. Newborn kittens need a mothers care and antibodies from her milk. The mother also will train her kittens as only a mother can. Quietly observe from a distance to see if mother is present. Shell need to leave her litter for short periods of time to find food for herself. If the kittens are clean and sleeping in a heap, Moms most likely out finding food. Never interfere with the kittens or their space as long as the mother is around. Do not touch them. Do not cre-ate a shelter. Do not try to keep them warm. Do not feed them. This may stress her and she may abandon her family. However, you can provide food and water. Place containers far enough away from the nest so you wont disturb Mom and kittens, or draw predators (raccoons) to the area. Keep dogs and children far away. When the kittens are eating on their own, this is the time to act. If Mom is friendly and can be handled easily, its best to take her and the kittens indoors until they are old enough (visit www. PeggyAdams.org to determine how to approximate age of kittens) to be spayed or neutered (so they cant have babies themselves) and then adopted into new homes. If Mom isnt friendly, she needs to be trapped and spayed, but not now while she is caring for her babies. Contact us and together well make a plan for trap-ping Mom and her kittens. Once kittens eat on their own they can be safely separated from Mom. You can begin the socialization process in your home or find someone to adopt them. The mother can then be trapped, spayed, vaccinated and returned to her outdoor home. Got cats?

That was the finding of a research team at Nationwide after analyzing its database of 1.27 million dogs from 2007 to 2015. They looked at 184,748 dogs of 24 breeds identified as brachycephalic „ meaning they had large heads, short snouts and protruding eyes „ to deter-mine whether those dogs were less healthy, as healthy or more healthy than dogs without those features. When accidents, infectious diseases and conditions related to brachycephal-ic anatomy, such as elongated soft pal-ate and a smaller-than-normal trachea, were removed from consideration, brachycephalic dogs were less healthy across the board. Ear infections, aller-gies, bladder infections and pneumonia were all found at higher rates in dogs with shortened faces. The relative disease rates for pneumonia are particularly noteworthy,Ž the report states. The prevalence of pneu-monia was twice as high in brachyce-phalic dogs „ 1.6 percent compared to 0.77 percent in other dogs. Brachycephalic dogs also had greater rates of digestive issues (including their infamous flatulence), tooth extractions, hyperthermia (overhea ting), valvular heart disease, bacterial skin infections, anal gland problems, patellar luxation, intervertebral disc disease, corneal ulcers and conjunctivitis. Which breeds fall into the brachycephalic category? The breeds mentioned above are no surprise, but the list also includes the affenpinscher, Boston terri-er, boxer, Brussels griffon, cavalier King Charles spaniel, dogue de Bordeaux, Japanese chin, Lhasa apso, mastiff, bull mastiff, Neapolitan mastiff, Pyrenean mastiff, Tibetan mastiff, Spanish mastiff, Pekingese and Shih Tzu. Even before this information was announced at the 2017 North Ameri-can Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Florida, veterinarians have been con-cerned about the health of brachyce-phalic dogs. In a presentation at NAVC in 2016, veterinarian Philip A. Moses addressed the health-related welfare of flat-faced dogs. A study by Niels C. Pedersen published last July in the journal Canine Genetics and Epidemiology reported that loss of genetic diversity in the bulldog was pronounced in the region of the genome that contains many of the genes that regulate normal immune responses. And at an Aug. 6 session at the 2016 American Veterinary Medical Association conference in San Antonio, Dr. Gail Golab, AVMAs chief advo-cacy and public policy officer, noted that breeding dogs for extreme physical characteristics such as brachycephaly and wrinkled skin had led to a multi-tude of health issues. What can be done?Dr. Moses says that beyond treating individual dogs surgically to relieve their breathing difficulties, its impor-tant for kennel clubs, breeders, owners and veterinarians to recognize and learn about the health problems in these dogs and how they can be improved through better breeding. He regularly speaks to breed clubs about the issues associated with their breeds, especially those with a genetic basis. In the 2016 NAVC proceedings, he says: For example, hemivertebrae is highly heritable and could be virtu-ally removed from most of these breeds if radiographic screening was com-pulsory. I advise that all dogs should have good-quality spinal radiographs taken at 6 months of age, and any dog with any vertebral body abnormalities should be neutered.Ž He urges breeders to educate new puppy owners about the problems asso-ciated with their breeds. Q Bulldogs and other flat-faced breeds can have shorter, less healthy lives than other dogs.

Habitats National Women Build Week invites women to devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 17,000 women, including Lowes Heroes volunteers, are expected to volunteer at construction sites across the country as part of Habitats 2017 National Women Build Week. We are proud to take part in a program that is powered by women, fund-ed by women and empowers women. Participating groups represent Palm Beach County schools, corporations, civic groups and groups of families and friends,Ž says Amy Brand, chief develop-ment officer of Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. At this years home in the Coleman Park neighborhood of West Palm Beach, volunteers will work to build, paint and landscape the Marte home in anticipa-tion of a Home Dedication in July. This is the fifth Women Build home to be undertaken by Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. Through our partnership with Habitat and support of National Women Build Week, Lowes empowers women to get involved in their communities, learn construction skills and make a meaningful impact,Ž said James Frison, Lowes director of community relations. Were grateful to all the women in Palm Beach County who will volunteer this week to help build and repair decent and affordable housing.Ž Lowes helped launch National Women Build Week in 2008 to empow-er women to advocate for affordable housing and spotlight the homeowner-ship challenges faced by many. Each year, Lowes provides the support of their employee volunteers and Lowes Heroes, and conducts how-to clinics at stores to teach volunteers construction skills so they can feel equipped to take part in the builds. Lowes Heroes will be among more than 300 volunteers helping build decent, affordable hous-ing in the Coleman Park neighborhood of West Palm Beach area as part of National Women Build Week. Lowes donated nearly $2 million to this years National Women Build Week, including a $5,000 store gift card to Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. Since 2003, Lowes has commit-ted more than $63 million to Habitats mission and helped more than 6,500 families improve their living conditions. Habitats first Women Build event was held in 1998.

Bats and alligators are nesting now, FWC advises Floridas four-month bat maternity season started April 16 and lasts through Aug. 14. This also is the time the alligator becomes more active for similar rea-sons. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds the pub-lic to keep their distance from these animals for safety and other reasons. Florida is home to 13 species of native bats, including rare and threatened spe-cies. Many bats roost in natural sites such as trees with cavities and peeling bark. However, homeowners and building managers who need to exclude bats roosting in houses or other structures can do so as long as it is not done during maternity season. In South Florida, additional precautions are needed to ensure Florida bon-neted bats, an endangered species, are not roosting in a structure because they may give birth to pups outside of the April 16 to Aug. 14 bat maternity season. The FWC provides guidelines on how to safely and effectively exclude bats without harming them or people. Go to MyFWC.com/Bats for more informa-tion. Maternity season begins in midApril when groups of bats gather to give birth and raise young, and continues through mid-August when young bats are able to fly and feed themselves,Ž said Melissa Tucker of the FWCs Species Conservation Planning Section. Bats are beneficial to Florida, since they con-sume many insects, including pests that can significantly damage agricultural crops.Ž There are several ways that Florida residents and visitors can help bats: Q Preserve natural roost sites, including trees with cavities and peeling bark. Dead fronds left on palms can also pro-vide roosting spots for bats. Q Put up a bat house. Q Report unusual bat behavior to: MyFWC.com/BatMortality. You also can watch a video to learn more about conducting a bat exclu-sion: How to Get Bats out of a Build-ing.Ž More bat exclusion information can be found at Batcon.org. Get to know more about Florida bats by going to MyFWC.com/Bats. Con-tact your closest FWC regional office to speak with a regional wildlife assistance biologist if you have questions about bats in buildings. The American alligator is a conservation success story. Florida has a healthy and stable alligator population, which is estimated at 1.3 million and consists of alligators of every size. They are an important part of Floridas ecosystem, but should be regarded with caution and respect. During spring when temperatures rise, alligators become more active. Although alligator incidents are rare, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-tion Commission recommends taking precautions when having fun near or in the water. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Reduce the chances of conflicts with alligators by swimming only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Also keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators control their body temperature by basking in the sun, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their dis-tance if they see one. And never feed alligators as it is dangerous and illegal. The FWC administers a Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program to address complaints concerning specific alliga-tors. People with concerns about an alligator should call the FWCs toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). SNAP uses contracted nuisance alligator trappers throughout the state to remove alligators 4 feet in length or greater that are believed to pose a threat to people, pets or property. The FWC also works diligently to keep Floridians and visitors informed, including providing advice about living with alligators. Learn more about alligators and bats at MyFWC.com. Q

We would have loved to join you. Im surprised you didnt invite us.Ž Although Kellys voice was calm as she said it, Laurie knew by experience, and from the look on her friends face that Kelly was hurt, and probably, angry. Laurie and Kelly had been friends for years, ever since their youngest had been in pre-school together. Both had been new to the neighborhood and hadnt known many other people. They became fast friends, sharing many activities and confidences. As time passed, though, Laurie had begun to branch out, expanding her social life to include friends she had made at work or on the tennis team. Although Kelly had made some other friends, she largely relied on Laurie for social plans. Kelly could become quite possessive and territorial about how Laurie spent her time. Laurie hated the way Kelly put her on the defensive whenever she made plans of her own. Sometimes, Kelly was subtle, and would casually ask Laurie how shed spent her weekend. Other times Kelly was more blatant and would put Laurie on the spot. Laurie did not believe she was obligated to include Kelly in all of her social activities, nor that she owed Kelly an explanation, or an apology. Laurie wanted to confront Kelly but knew how sensitive her friend was and worried that things would never be the same.Exclusion always hurts, but especially so when weve been hurt by a person we trusted and counted on to be considerate of our feelings. Is it fair for friends to have expectations that we include them in most of our activities? Are these expectations fair or reasonable? Are there limits and parameters to guide us? How do we define a friendship? Most of us look at our friendships from very personal vantage points. Unfortunately, we may set ourselves up for tremendous hurts and misunderstandings because we may have very different belief systems about what a true friendship entails. Yes, we count on our friendships to be positive, affirming additions to our lives. Granted, we may enjoy very different kinds of connections with varied groups of people. Sometimes our relationships are superficial, but fill a need or purpose „ parents of our childrens friends, tennis teammates or collegial co-workers. We share common interests, and may keep things cordial and light. We are not likely to share important confidences. Other relationships are grounded with deeper connections and purpose. With these treasured friends, we may speak the same language and have shared value systems. We know in our hearts that these people have our backs and come through for us consistently over time. Because of a gratifying history, we may trust these people and feel safe enough to confide very personal matters, reaching out for advice and emotional support. Most of us have learned to balance and share our friendships. We understand that our friends will have other loyalties and bonds, and are secure enough to give them the breathing room to have activities with-out us „ no questions asked! We know our friends wouldnt like the feeling of being held hostage to obligations they never intended to sign onto. We also have to remind ourselves that no friendship is perfect. We often grow in different directions, and must be flexible and open to these changes if the relation-ship is to thrive over time. Sometimes when friends pull away, it has nothing to do with their feelings about us. Rather, it may be a reflection of a change in their lives or their desire to take a different course. When we refuse to make allowances for these changes or some lesser transgres-sions, we may create conflicts and com-promise the comfort of the relationship. Just like with Laurie, in the fictionalized vignette ab ove, our friends may become resentful if we vigilantly follow their com-ings and goings or castigate them for per-ceived slights. We must be careful to step back and try to consider the situation from a less emotional stance. Sometimes when close friends dont include us, they may not have intentionally meant to hurt us. In their minds, they may have made choices apart from us and dont feel an obligation to explain themselves. To be fair, they may have misjudged the impact of the exclu-sion, and might have navigated the situa-tion differently if they knew the exclusion would have hurt as badly as it did. Its not unreasonable to count on friendsŽ to be attuned to each others feel-ings and to do their best to be considerate. There are many ways to soften the blow to others when we disappoint, or dont include them. Offering alternate options keeps the door open and shows sensitivity. Its an especially painful betrayal to learn we misjudged the character of a per-son we valued. Healing from hurts is a very personal, ongoing process. Our vulnerability to slights may point to fundamental insecuri-ties we may hold. And, how we respond and conduct ourselves in the face of the hurt speaks to our own character and sense of self worth. When we stay stuck too long in a resentful, vengeful place, its often much tougher to move forward. Reaching out to others for emotional support is often validating and might lessen the sting of a rejection. Cultivating new interests and endeavors can also be a means of deflecting the hurt. At the same time, enthusiastically immers-ing ourselves in new friendships and proj-ects can make an important difference.

the season, a remark-able eight years in a row of visitation growth since the Great Recession,Ž said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, the tourism-marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. This is powerful testimony that tourism mar-keting works.Ž Last year, the total increase in visitation was driven by a 7 percent increase in domestic visitors and a 7.3 percent increase in Florida-based visitors, com-pared to 2015. The largest domestic growth markets were New York with a 5 percent increase, Miami/Fort Lau-derdale with an 11 percent increase, and Orlando with a 9 percent increase in visitors. Most of the visitors to Palm Beach County (6.6 million) were domes-tic, while 739,000 visitors came from international regions including Canada, Western Europe and Latin America. The number of hotel room nights sold, 4.4 million, was a 2.3 percent increase over the previous year. Have the frequent visits by the President Trump, who calls Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach his southern White House, had an impact on the area, other than the annoying traffic jams and increased security costs? The Palm Beaches have long been a preferred leisure destination for heads of state and commerce, dignitaries and celebrities,Ž Mr. Pesquera said. From a tourism perspective, we expect that the renewed media focus on the presidents oceanfront retreat will raise the profile of the Palm Beaches and entice curious travelers to explore the vast array of rec-reational and cultural activities, inno-vative restaurants and award-winning hotels that these headlining celebrities frequent during their regular visits. The Palm Beaches deliver more best-in-class experiences than anywhere else in Flor-ida, and we look forward to welcoming folks from every walk of life who wish to join us in the year-round sunshine.Ž The presidents visits have been good for Palm Beach businesses, said Lau-rel Baker, executive director of the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce. Regardless of the countrys events, Palm Beach always shines,Ž Ms. Baker said. Having the president visit as often as he does has brought new awareness worldwide of the Town of Palm Beach „ that makes everyone happy, particu-larly when the visitors stop by the stores and restaurants to enjoy the Palm Beach hospitality.Ž On the chamber level, Ms. Baker added, we had a terrific year „ great speakers, audience attendance averag-ing 500 „ lots of new members taking advantage of the various benefits. Life is good!Ž Peter Emmerich, one of the owners of Grandview Gardens Bed & Breakfast in West Palm Beach, said he has not noticed a strong direct effect from the presidents visits. Here and there a guest will ask where Mar-a-Lago is and if one can drive by. With some book-ings, I suspect they chose our destina-tion because of the buzz, but it is not dominant and we would be full in high season anyway, luckily. However, there is clear interest by the media. My business partner Rick Rose, who does the Worth Avenue Walking Tours every Wednesday during season, has been interviewed repeatedly by the largest Russian, Chinese and Ger-man TV networks regarding the effect of the president.Ž The B&B has had a very good season and numbers are up, Mr. Emmerich said. The room revenue Dec. 1, 2016, to March 31, 2017, is up by 7 percent and the room occupancy for the same period is up almost 3 percent. Our strong pil-lars during season continue to be the extended bookings from the gallerists and antique dealers for the four big art shows, as well as several long-stay, annual repeat-guest bookings.Ž This last season also was the first time the B&Bs Palm Beach Vacation Rentals had a total of 15 short-term vacation rental units on the market for the entire season. All houses were fully booked for most of the season, basically at rack rate, Mr. Emmerich said. Area restaurants also reported strong seasons. At Guanabanas in Jupiter, business has been really good, said Executive Chef Vinny Trupia. Were an outdoor restaurant so the weather is very important,Ž Mr. Trupia said. We didnt have much of a winter or rain, so its been really good.Ž On a good day, the popular eatery can serve between 1,000 and 2,000 diners. On a smaller scale, Farmer Girl restaurant in Lake Worth also reports a good season. Weve been rolling right along this year,Ž said owner Pete Roubekas. For us the busy season runs from Novem-ber until April, when many people go north.Ž Mr. Roubekas said he thinks his better-than-average season is the result of strong media cov-erage of last years free Thanksgiving dinner, when he said it would be his last after 32 years. Some people thought that meant the restaurant would be closing, but thats not true,Ž Mr. Roubekas. He said that he was getting older and that he annu-al dinners, which feed thousands each Thanksgiving, were an enormous amount of work. His family wanted him with them at home for the holiday. Many local fundraising organizations also reported strong seasonal gains. We far exceeded our fundraising goal this year, due in large part to an exceptional and rel-evant speaker, Dr. Michio Kaku,Ž said Marcy Hoffman, director of institu-tional advancement at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. We suc-cessfully tied in our theme, The Future of the Mind, with raising funds for our new $2,000,000 walk-through brain exhibit to be installed next year, raising more than $400,000.Ž Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation Executive Director Kris Lidinsky said this had been another good year for fundraising there, as well. We are fortunate to have many committed donors, both in terms of founda-tions and individuals, who believe in our mission to supplement the arts and academic curriculum at the school. This translates into funds which enable us to provide 22 artist-in-residence positions for the school as well as $135,000 in scholarships to Dreyfoos students in addition to art supplies, private les-sons, and covering travel expenses and tuition for summer programs, among other items. Our special events con-tinue to be popular as we showcase our talented students in outstanding perfor-mances. Our pop-up, all-white dinner event, Dreyfoos in White, is growing in its appeal as an event where creativity abounds.Ž The Palm Beach County Food Bank is grateful for the sup-port it receives from the community, said the organizations new executive direc-tor, Karen Erren. Four years ago Bethesda-by-the-Sea started Empty Bowls in Palm Beach as part of its Feeding in February program and it has continued to be an outstand-ing event each year. Building on that success, we were delighted to have the opportunity to expand Empty Bowls into Delray Beach this season.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 20-26, 2017 | A15 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Shawn Nightingale is truly a man for all seasons. A successful Off-Broadway producer whose Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay ManŽ recently stopped at the Kravis Center, this part-time resident of Jupiter also runs four stores around Palm Beach County called Family Mat-ters. These stores work closely with the U.S. Department of Agricultures Spe-cial Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, also called the WIC program. It provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income pregnant and postpartum women, as well as to infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk. Ive had my WIC stores here for 25 years,Ž Mr. Nightingale said. I opened my first one in South Miami, then anoth-er in Lantana. Subsequently, I opened 60 of them up and down the east coast. Ive since sold all of those and still have four „ in Delray Beach, Lantana, Greenacres and Mangonia Park.Ž He said the program benefits more than just poor people. Its not like food stamps,Ž he said. You can make up to about $47,000 a year with three kids and still qualify. You can be a working parent whos just having a hard time affording expensive baby formulas.Ž Mr. Nightingale learned about the program 30 years ago from a relative who was using it in California. He took her to a market in Los Angeles, only to discover the programs eligible food brands and restricted quantities did not match those offered in standard grocery stores there. She left the store without many of the necessary items she needed and felt embarrassed and stigmatized by the grocery clerk as well. I said there has to be a better way,Ž he said. So I opened the first WIC store here in Florida, where we only carried the cereals, cheeses and formulas that were qualified by the WIC program. Women could come in and whatever they bought, they were buying the right thing and the right amount. Also, my employees „ many of whom are or have been on the WIC program as well „ are trained to help them maximize the ben-efits of the program. It was a tremen-dous success. It still is. Our customers walk away with everything theyre supposed to get.Ž Mr. Nightingale is just as talented in producing shows as he is in helping needy families. A Cape Cod native who grew up around theater in Provincetown, Mass., he has produced and worked with such famous names as Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Rivers, John Waters, David Sedaris, Bruce Vilanch and the Tony Award-winning Elaine Stritch. He also co-produced the Broadway musical Side ShowŽ and Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man,Ž cur-rently in its fourth year at the 777 The-atre in New York, is the longest running comedy in Off-Broadway history. No topic is taboo in this romantic comedy, set in a university auditorium at a meet-the-authors event. Shy and studious moderator Robyn welcomes guest author Dan Anderson, who wrote the book Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man.Ž With the help of a hunky stage assistant named Stefan, Dan aims to turn the presentation into an interactive seminar. The play is based on the real-life book by Anderson and Maggie Berman and is for mature audiences. Id say about 90 percent of our audience for Sex Tips is women,Ž Mr. Night-ingale laughed. Its a popular choice for bachelorette parties and as we tour the show around the country to cities like St. Paul, Denver, Des Moines and Milwaukee, were getting a lot of what I like to call women parties and girls nights out. But I must say if they bring their husbands, the men also find it very entertaining. The show is a bit risqu in places, but its all in good fun.Ž Successful as his producing career has been, Mr. Nightingale said his Fam-ily Matters stores remain very close to his heart. Many times my clients have left our store and Im in tears for them,Ž he said. Instead of going to Publix, where theyd only walk away with about 50 percent of what they qualified for, now theyre walking away with 100 percent. And theyre buying from people with whom they feel comfortable talking about their problems. We relate to them on a face-to-face basis and try to help them in any way that we can. And thats something you cant put a price tag on.Ž These stores dont have their own websites, he said, but qualified custom-ers can be directed to them by the clin-ics they visit for their WIC vouchers.

A16 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 20-26, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGLowly JCPenney stock is risky, but it’s a risk that may pay offMention the department store JCPenney to anyone, and I think the reaction will be dependant on the persons age. Someone older than 50 may remember ordering items from its once-popular mail-order catalogs. A person born in the 1970s or 80s may recall his parents forcing him to a store to try on back to schoolŽ clothing that he didnt want to wear. Bring up JCPenney to a Millen-nial and she may not know what you are talking about, never having stepped foot into a store. Needless to say, the JCPenney brand is facing hard times and its stock price is reflective of this struggle. Just 10 years ago, the stock price was over $85 per share. It is now below $6. Of course, the entire retail industry is currently under strain, but JCPenney seems to be the poster child of a retail giant that has been brought to its knees. So what has caused this store to falter and can it ever regain its luster? At its peak in the 1970s, JCPenney had over 2,000 stores across the U.S. and sold everything from clothing to appliances to car parts to shotguns and even grocer-ies and pharmaceutical drugs. But in the 1980s, the department store decided to shed most of these businesses and focus mainly on apparel. This decision did not pan out for the company, as internet retailers Walmart, Target, Amazon and fast fashion retailers stole customers and market share. In 2011, JCPenney hired retailer superstar Ron John-son to lead the company to greatness. Mr. Johnson for-merly led Target and Apple stores to success and share-holders couldnt wait to see what he could do at strug-gling JCPenney. The new CEO dramatically changed how the retailer sold its products. He reasoned that consumers were tired of clip-ping coupons and waiting for big salesŽ to buy items. He believed that people just wanted quality items at a fair price and that is how JCPen-ney started to sell its clothing. Unfortunately, people did not respond well to Mr. Johnsons new sales strat-egy. First, it appears that people like the gameŽ of clipping coupons and shop-ping at sales. They like to feel like they are getting a bargainŽ despite the fact that the same coupons and sales are available to everyone. And without the aggressive promotions, people couldnt find a reason to shop at JCPenney. There were better pricing of name branded items online or at larger stores like Walmart. And JCPen-ney private label brands were deemed not as fashionable as similar brands at places like Target or fast fashion retail-ers. As a result, sales at JCPenney plummeted. Mr. Johnson was fired in 2013. In the past few years, the company has returned to its practice of marking up items and then heavily discounting them via coupons and sales. It has also com-mitted to closing over 100 underperform-ing stores and cutting its workforce. So is JCPenney dead in the water with no hope of rescue? I wouldnt write it off quite yet. First, the company has been focusing on improving its balance sheet by paying off debt and cutting expenses. More importantly, the company has a plan in place to improve sales by pivot-ing away from its almost sole focus on apparel. For example, it has a Sephora cosmetics store within a storeŽ in 590 locations and plans to open 70 more in the upcoming year. Cosmetics are a high margin business that drive consumers into a store. JCPenney also recently announced that it will compete directly with Home Depot and Sears by selling appliances in its stores once again. These are products that consumers typically do not buy online and also can drive foot traffic. Finally, the company has started a Home Ser-vice division within its stores where it is offer-ing bathroom remodel-ing, blind installation, home water solutions, smart home technol-ogy, and home heating/cooling. Again, these are services that you can-not buy on Amazon and are something that can distinguish JCPenney from competitors like Walmart. And it looks like these strategies are beginning to pay off. Earlier this month, the company announced that it was delaying the closing of 138 of its stores because sales and foot traffic at these locations has been considerably higher than management anticipated after the store closings were announced. But despite these positive changes, JCPenney stock remains at historical low prices. And from a valuation basis, the stock looks as discounted as a ski parka in July with its price to sales ratio at half that of many of its competitors. So much bad news is already priced into the stock that if one of its growth initiatives pays off, you could see a significant bounce in the stock. Clearly, JCP is a very risky stock right now but the risks just may be worth the potential reward. 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 BRETANestaterick@gmail.com Name: Erin Devlin Title: Special events and PR director at The Gardens Mall Location: Palm Beach GardensBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comLucky is the woman who loves to shop and then gets to work at her favorite mall. Thats life for Erin Devlin, the special events and PR director at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. The mall has been her home away from home for three years, since she was hired assistant marketing director. Her December promotion has the Flori-da native spearheading public relations, social media and philanthropic efforts for the mall. The 30-year-old took the lead at the mall for the upcoming LEGO Takeover!, an interactive, family-friendly adventure that runs April 28 through May 15. The event features nearly 50 life-sized LEGO sculptures, building competitions, movies and local charitable partnerships. The job, she says, is perfect for her.I get to meet so many people and help so many organizations through my com-munity outreach,Ž Ms. Devlin said. The former Cardinal Newman High School cheerleader also also stays on top of latest fashion trends and sales as she visits the 150 retailers in the mall. In time when shopping malls face stiff competition from online shopping and outlet malls, The Gardens Mall offers the best experience for shoppers, Ms. Devlin said. We have more than 150 retail shops, multiple dining opportunities, hair salons, nail salons, a post office and even a guest concierge shoppers can text for direc-tions, information or even reservations for one of the restaurants. The concierge can let you know if theres a long line at the Apple store and is great for gift giving suggestions,Ž she said. Erin DevlinAge: 30 Where I grew up: Palm Beach Gardens Where I live now: Jupiter Education: Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach; bachelors degree in marketing from the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist Uni-versity in Dallas. What brought me to Florida: I was lucky enough to have been born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens! I moved to Dallas for four years to attend Southern Methodist University, but I knew that I always wanted to come back to Palm Beach County after graduation. Palm Beach County has so much to offer and after being away for four years, I really missed the weather, my family and our lifestyle. My first job and what it taught me: While home over the summers from col-lege, my dad hired both my sister and me to work at our family business. It taught me patience, customer service and flex-ibility. A career highlight: Being able to bring LEGO Takeover! at The Gardens Mall, a three-week exhibit that will bring LEGO to life at The Gardens Mall from April 28 through May 15. Hobbies: I am a true girly girl at heart, so I hate to admit that even when I am not working you can often find me at the mall. However outside of the mall, I love to travel, boating, fishing and spending quality time with my family and friends. I enjoy working out „ Orange Theory Fit-ness is my latest passion. I have recently begun participating in local 5ks and 10ks with my coworkers. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Understanding that every day in retail is going to be different, which is great, but requires flexibility. About mentors: I am lucky to have come across Michele Jacobs at the begin-ning of my career, because she has taught me so much in the last 2.5 years that I know will help me continue to grow in my career. To list only one thing that she has taught me would be difficult. However, I think one of the most important things she has taught me is how important relation-ships are; both inside the work place and in our community. When I tell someone around Palm Beach County that I work at The Gardens Mall, they will usually ask so you work with Michele Jacobs?Ž with their next response being,  You are SO lucky.Ž She is one of the most well respected business women in the commu-nity and to be able to work and learn from her is an honor. I hope one day that people say those words about myself. Q MOVING ON UP“I get to meet so many people and help so many organizations through my community outreach.” — Erin Devlin, Special events and PR director, The Gardens Mall CAPEHART PHOTOGRAPHYErin Devlin received her promotion at The Gardens Mall in December. She loves to shop, so you may spot her at the mall on her off-hours.

They are in a room filled with so many people it requires stadium seat-ing (plus live network TV,) and every-thing is focused on one item at a time. So, if youre the person bidding on a car, it can feel like hundreds of eyes are fol-lowing every twitch of your fingers. Winners are heroes for a moment, and everyone else feels like a true loser ƒ at least until they wheel the next car up on stage. All of this is part of a formula to extract the extra bid out of everyone. It might seem manipulative, but its also why some owners only take their clas-sic cars to auctions. However, there is some good news, and this years Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach sale highlighted the optimistic side. Even with an eye for trying to get the most money possible out of people, there were still plenty of affordable cars. There were multiple examples of iconic American classics „ like the first-gen-eration Ford Mustang and plenty of Palm Beachs favorite, the Mercedes 560 SLs. They all sold for well under $20K. But those who watch the markets dili-gently also know that these were selling close to what it cost for a private sale. What makes Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach exceptionally attractive are affordable examples of cars that are unique beyond comparison. After all, its hard to find an equivalent machine to a 1957 Fiat 500 microcar stuffed with a Porsche transmission and Subaru WRX 2.5-liter turbo motor hanging off the back. It doesnt get more survivor-grade than a 1977 Ford F-350 pickup with only 3,130 miles on it and so original that its current tires were installed four decades ago at the factory. There was even a right-hand drive 1990 Chevrolet Corvette that General Motors built as a concept to study selling the car in countries like England and Australia. Production never followed, making this an exclusive find. All of those vehicles sold for well under $20,000. Thats still real money, but anyone who frequents the local car shows has seen collectors spend more on custom vehicles that are not as unique as some that went through this auction. Those just looking for rock-bottom prices could even find some interesting classics like a 1977 Ford Thunderbird, a 1981 Jaguar XJ6, and a 1963 Chevrolet Corvair convertible. These and many other second-tier classics had shining paint and were healthy enough to be driven home from the auction block ƒ and none of them broke the $5K ceiling. Possibly the largest standout from the bargain basement was a 1989 Mase-rati Biturbo Zagato Spyder. These cars have the kind of reliability reputation that most people wouldnt wish on their worst enemy. Still, selling at $1,700 gives someone who is mechanically inclined a beautiful Italian convertible for a Craig-slist price. The abundance of affordable cars doesnt mean that the event looked like a used car junkyard. Highlighting rea-sonably priced rides just illustrates that its a large enough auction to include something for everyone. Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach still included plenty of high-dollar exotics, including a specially-built 2006 Ford GT Targa for $401,500, a 1988 Lamborghini Countach for $236,500, and a 2010 Fer-rari 599 GTB for $200,200. The prestige and provenance of a 1968 Shelby Mus-tang GT500KR convertible once owned by actor Lee Marvin pushed the price to $220K. Also, the first retail sale of a new 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 occurred during the auction. This was part of the extensive charity sales, and in this case, raised nearly a quarter of a million dol-larsfor the United Way. Auctions can be intimidating, but that shouldnt stop the average classic car dreamer. Many of the sale prices this year were at or below expectations. Bar-rett-Jackson will say thats the benefit of buying from their no-reserve auctions, and experts might see this as a sign of a softening market. But all you really need to know is that the deals are out there ƒ if youre willing to put up with all eyes on you. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

I have been writing about these happenings for 15 years at the Jupiter Courier Ne wsweekly, along with a style column for five years in the now defunct PBG Lifestyle Magazine, which closed at the end of 2016. I am now very hon-ored to be starting this new venture. Noted with pleasureThis weeks focus is on the magnificent Maltz Jupiter Theatre gala, Everythings Coming Up Roses,Ž held Feb. 25 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Trump National Golf Club Jupiter. It was an evening that I wont soon forget and an ideal venue for a large event like this and luxurious enough to help raise a record-breaking $848,000 for the not-for-profit theater, thanks to the Event Committee headed up by Event Chairman Sal Tiano and Honorary Chairman Michele Jacobs The soiree broke all records, entertaining more than 400 guests and sup-porters for the Maltz, playing homage to the show GypsyŽ with the Every-things Coming Up RosesŽ theme. The evening consisted of a cocktail reception on the Crystal Ballroom Veranda, dinner in the ballroom, a live auction, a presentation honoring Bonnie and Ogden White friends of the theater since 2006, spectacular enter-tainment and dancing. Gorgeous design-er gowns and handsome tuxes prevailed. As guests, we all dined on a threecourse meal, featuring sliced tenderloin with sauce bordelaise coupled with gar-lic herb shrimp and a delicious decon-structed black forest dessert, showcas-ing rich chocolate sponge cake with dark chocolate mousse, cherry compote, Chantilly crme and a b utterfly garnish. Chairman Tiano and Honorary Chairman Jacobs welcomed guests and officially kicked off the evening. Setting the dcor theme were colorful, dramatic centerpieces with floating candlelight illuminating the while tables dressed in a palette of navy blue, blush and rose gold that highlighted alluring starburst-style bouquets of blue hydran-geas, white roses, blue delphinium and white orchids. White and gold butterflies served as the events theme. With the Believe fundraising campaign for a major expansion currently underway, the large crowd was treated to a spectacular multimedia presenta-tion that featured a 30-piece orches-tra and high-energy performances from more than 50 singers and dancers. A group of 80 children from the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Con-servatory of Performing Arts earned a standing ovation following their per-formance of The Impossible Dream (The Quest)Ž from the musical Man of La ManchaŽ as a mass choir. The entire production, complete with singers, puppeteers, dancers, soloists, drummers, a bagpipe, a choir, ballet dancers and an ensemble, was directed by Andrew Kato along with Rachel Blavatnik associate producer, and Ricky Nahas, choreographer. This colorful, professionally done show brought tears to the eyes of many people present, including this reporter. Those kids were wonderful, thanks to the conservatorys education director, Julie Rowe and the instructors.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 20-26, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYFor the love of Bug-eyes, and other old toysThe place: Private sale in Naples. Cost: $35 The skinny: My mom knows how I like these old papier-mch doll heads and accessories. This little lady may be nearly 150 years old „ the first child for whom she was a companion probably has been dead at least half a century, but the doll endures. The 28-inch dolls head is mounted on a cloth body and she has papier-mch lower arms and legs, and was probably made in Germany. Her clothing, though old, probably is not original. Her wig also is a replacement. Thank goodness she has not been repainted. Her face and hands show the marks of time „ one can imagine she was dropped and kissed and played with all those years ago. But her blue eyes still shine as brightly as they did for her first owner. Q THE FIND: You could say Bug-eyes and I met cute. It was 1982 or 83 at a luncheon in Venice. Whoever was supposed to go with my mom had bailed, so I joined her for the luncheon and the doll show that followed. And there she was „ staring at me through blue glass paperweight eyes that clearly had borne witness to more than a century of history. Bug-eyes was the largest papier-mch doll head I ever had seen. But she was a mess. She was bald, part of the paint was missing from the left side of her face and the head and shoulder plate had long been separated from her body. That didnt matter. She was beautiful, from the delicate brush strokes that formed her eyebrows to the palest of pink that covered her lips. Then, there was the surprised look of those buggy eyes that shone in hypnotic blues. I had planned to display the head as a bust, but Bug-eyes had other ideas. Later that year, we attended an antiques show in Sarasota and a doll dealer had a large body that was headless. It was made of cloth and had papier-mch limbs. It looked like it could be a good fit. We bought it, got it home and it was as though Bug-eyes head and body had been reunited. She now stands an impressive 33 inches tall. My moms friend Mary Jo Brockington of Cape Coral did some restoration and another friend, Diana Dodd of Pine Island, created a dress. Its hard to believe that Bug-eyes has been a part of my collecton for over 30 years „ we used her picture to promote a scary dolls package years ago when I worked at Š‡ ƒŽ‡ƒ…Š‘•– „ my mom picked up the paper and said, Yep, theres Bug-eyes.Ž Bug-eyes now has siblings, and thats apropos of everything. Old toys tell a story about coming of age in a world that no longer exists. Papier-mch tells the story of time in a way other materials cant, simply because it is organic and peels away to reveal layers of history. If youre lucky, those layers reveal the love that first owner had for the toy. Q A papier-mch doll scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com COLLECTORS CORNER BUG-EYES ANTIQUESThe time is always right for collecting sundials BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELPocket sundials were very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe and America. A surprising number are sold to collectors each year as ornaments or historic rel-ics, or as interesting and attractive conversation pieces. Auctions of sci-entific instruments sell sundials. A recent Skinner sale in Boston had brass or silver examples, many from the 17th and 18th centuries. They were made by hand with engraved lines and letters, and an inset compass. The gnomon, the upright piece that casts the shadow, was made so it could fit into the case that held the rest of the sundial. A silver octagonal plate with lines, numerals and a hinged gnomon was kept in a felt-lined leather case. The 2-inch French late 17th century antique sold for $3,198, including the buyers premium. Q: I have a very old dresser or commode set that is in good shape except its missing several of the drawer han-dles. I believe they are silver, and they are very ornate. Is there a good place I could look for matching pieces, or is there a place I can get some made? A: There are many places that sell replacement hardware. You can find them online, or you can look for ads for replacement hardware in antiques publications. You also may be able to find similar hardware at antiques shows or flea markets. If you dont find an exact match, you can replace all the hardware with hardware appropriate to the period. Be sure the replacement hardware needs holes where the original holes are. Q: I have a milk glass dish that looks like those with a hen top, but this one has an animal. It is marked Patd Aug 6, 1889.Ž Does the date tell who made it and suggest price today? A: The patent date tells the maker is Atterbury Glass Co. of Pittsburgh. It closed in 1903. Does the animal have red glass eyes? The red eyes were used on the most expensive Atter-bury animals. Many companies made milk glass, and milk-glass dishes with animal or bird lids were available. Atterbury is one of the best. In 2000, the dish was worth $175 to $200. Today milk glass is not as pop-ular with collectors, and your dish is worth only $100 to $150. Q: I have a purple cow figurine with a small sticker on the bottom. Some of the words are worn off, but I can read Free-man McFarlin, El Monte, California.Ž The cow is 4 inches long and about 4 inches high. What is it worth? A: Freeman McFarlin Potteries was in business in California from 1951 to 1980. Gerald McFarlin had a pottery in El Monte for several years before May-nard Anthony Freeman joined him in 1951. Freeman designed some of the whimsical animal figurines that also were made into salt-and-pepper shak-ers, sugars and creamers, and other items. The animals he designed are incised with his signature, Anthony." Later, the company opened a factory in San Marcos, California. In 1980, International Foods bought Freeman McFarlin and the El Monte factory was closed. The San Marcos factory was sold to Hagen Renaker, which continued to operate it until 1986. The purple cow figurine sells for about $15. Q: I have some old 10-inch Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman records from the 1940s that I would like to sell. I know there are collector books for old stamps and coins, but are there any resources to help value old records? A: People collect all kinds of old records because of their interest in a particular type of music, a particular artist or a particular music label. Most old best-selling records were pressed by the millions and are worth very little unless they are notable for some rea-son „ an autographed jacket, a short run pressing, or an obscure title or artist. Buyers of old records usually look for records made before 1950 and after 1970 in new or nearly new condition, with the origi-nal paper sleeves or jackets. Your old 10-inch records probably are 78s,Ž with one song that lasts about three minutes on each side. They are shellac, made before the era of long-playing vinyl records, and are not very desirable to collectors. There are websites that buy records and have very specific lists for what they want and what they dont want. Big band music is popular, but those records still only sell f or about $2. Your local library also might have price guides for old records, such as Standard Catalog of American Records 1950-1990, 9th edition, or Goldmine Record Album Price Guide, 8th edition, both by Dave Thompson. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. Write to Kovels, Florida Weekly, King Features Syndicate, 628 Virginia Dr., Orlando, FL 32803. A small sundial by Michael Butterfield of Paris sold for $3,198 at a Massachusetts auction recently.

YesWhen I was 10 years old, my father sat me down to watch The GodfatherŽ (1972). I didnt understand most of it, but I was old enough to grasp Dads intention in show-ing it to me, which was the emphasis on family. What Ive discovered since then is that the importance of family is uniquely subjective, and therefore debatable. Take Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) in The Lost City of Z.Ž Hes unfortunate in his choice of ancestors,Ž a British aristo-crat tells us, yet Percy is steadfast in trying to resurrect his familys besmirched name. Its the early 1900s in Great Britain, and Percys goal of advancement through military ranks has been rebuffed. He soon finds another path to redemption with the Royal Geographic Society, but theres a catch: He must be away for years as he creates maps in South America. By this time Percy already has a wife, Nina (Sienna Miller), and son, Jack. He leaves them behind, but has pregnant Ninas blessing. This first voyage, accom-panied by aide-de-camp Henry Costin (Robert Pattinson), is a complete success. He gets the respect he craves. He charts the map along the Rio Verde River with aplomb. He returns a hero. But its not enough for Percy. While in the Amazon, he saw signs of an ancient civilization and is determined to return to explore further. The hell with his family. Be damned with the dangers of the jungle, disease and savage locals. This is about legacy. This is also where the central debate of the film comes into play. On multiple occasions, Percy is gone for years at a time, all the while insisting that hes doing it for his family. But how does it help his sons and daughter to grow up with an absentee father? Or his wife to raise the children on her own, essentially? Hes a role model for ambition and determina-tion, but hes missing out on his children growing up. Its a credit to writer/director James Gray (We Own The NightŽ) that son Jack (Tom Holland) calls Percy out for being a void in his life. Perhaps surprisingly, Percy has the temerity to be offended by the teenage boys bluntness. In his mind, Percy is doing right by his family. Its all subjec-tive, remember, and dont forget: The story takes place in a different time with differ-ent cultural values. Mr. Hunnam is strong as Percy, a man with integrity who is brutally honest „ except perhaps with himself. Ms. Miller tries to give Nina an inherent strength and understanding, and she succeeds as much as the script allows Nina to have it. And Mr. Pattinson „ much like Kristen Stewart „ is nicely putting the TwilightŽ films behind him in yet another challeng-ing role. Mr. Grays dialog (based on the book by David Grann) isnt always strong, at times sinking to feebly foreboding statements such as Percy being told, Aint nobody comes back from there „ ever,Ž as hes about to travel the river for the first time. The line would have merit if the dangers of the journey werent already well estab-lished; by the time it comes, we dont need a reminder. But thats a small gripe in an intriguing, epic-scale story (it covers about 20 years) with strong performances and quality cos-tume and production designs. The Lost City of ZŽ is a film you will admire, ques-tion and debate long after its over. And any movie that lingers with you like this has to have done something right. Q dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Tom Holland can next be seen in the title role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” opening July 7. FILM CAPSULESFrantz +++ (Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Anton von Lucke) In Germany shortly after The Great War, a stranger (Mr. Niney) appears at the gravesite of a grieving womans (Ms. Beer) fiance (Mr. Lucke, seen in flashbacks), and he intends to get to know the fian-ces family. Tense drama whose supposed resolution comes in the middle, leading to an intriguing and unexpected second half. Rated PG-13. Gifted +++ (Chris Evans, Jenny Slate, Mckenna Grace) After her mother dies, a 7-year-old math prodigy (Ms. Grace) is the subject of a custody battle between her uncle (Mr. Evans) and grandmother (Lindsay Dun-can). Its predictable and has the expected touching moments, but the best parts are the unexpected dashes of humor that make it endearing. Rated PG-13.

The animation, action and humor are all average. But the target audi-ence is little kids, and it effectively conveys the message that girls can grow up to be whatever they want to be. Rated PG.

Q B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 20-26, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe dusty remains of LEmpire des signesŽ and Alices Adventures in WonderlandŽ can be found inside dis-tinctive goblets that are labeled with details on the book burnings. Nobody is mourning them more than their owner, Antonio Riello. It comes as a surprise to learn the Italian artist voluntarily destroyed his favorite books to serve them in these beautiful urns mimicking 16thand 17th-century Venetian designs. Ashes to AshesŽ lets the viewers inspect and choose what knowledge to consume based on title, author and publication year. Think of it as a wine cellar and those casting shadows as the books lin-gering souls. Mr. Riello is one of 33 artists who conceived the 46 glass works on view now through July 2 at Boca Raton Museum of Art. His is not the only piece to take a sacrificial approach in Glasstress,Ž an exhibition bringing together artists from all parts of the world who dont typi-cally work with this historically devalued medium. As a curator, I didnt focus on the medium but the content,Ž said Kathy Goncha-rov, curator of contemporary art. The work just happens to be in glass.Ž There is enough space separating the pieces to keep the show from feeling clutter ed or rushed. The focus is on the daring shapes, the striking colors and provocative themes ranging from iden-tity and social injustice to colonialism and environmental causes. Take Michael Joos Expanded Access,Ž which consists of shiny stanchions usu-ally found in airports and banks to guide our steps or define a waiting line. The mirrored bars succeed at controlling our movements so long as we play along, suggests the New York City-based artist. But they are not strong enough to con-tain us if we go off script. Cardiac Arrest VIII,Ž by South African artist Kendell Geers, delivers a similar warning with police batons made of glass. The batons are identical and hang neatly and undis-turbed in the shape of a heart. There are no bloodstains. No cracks. A call for social change is all it would take to activate these spotless decorations into menacing weapons. From a distance, Chinese artist Song Dongs suspended black Venetian chan-delier seems the type of artwork we would want to take home, brag about and happily stare at all day long. Until we realize this five-tiered alien entity has a name „ Glass Big Brother „ and IT is monitoring US. Those features we thought to be lovely motifs from afar are nothing less than LED-lit surveillance cameras. They are positioned at every level to capture every movement in the room. There is no need for the organ-ism to stretch out its arms and grab us. Its presence and implications make us uneasy already. A different level of discomfort is introduced by Hans Op de Beecks The Frozen Vanitas,Ž which is the remake of an ancient advice against human vanity and excess. The Belgian artist serves us grapes, a skull, and candles all in opaque glass and in the tradition of Dutch memento-mori still-lifes from the 17th century, which rendered earthly achieve-ments futile against the inevitability of death. The discomfort comes from spot-ting symbols of our modern times (a lighter, a cell phone) on Mr. Beecks table and realizing he is pointing at us. Not all pieces exude a dark attitude or rely on it to get a reaction. It is the stunning hue and intricate design of Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos Blue VelvetŽ that leaves us speechless. The blue Murano glass chandelier hangs dramatically from the ceiling and bright-ens up the mood with LED lights and sparkling golden sequins. The long blue limbs are dressed up in polyester and wear handmade golden woolen crochet at the top. The result is electrifying. If GlasstressŽ had nothing but Blue VelvetŽ and Glass Big BrotherŽ to offer, it would still be worth visiting if only to see firsthand how glass can become remarkable. But no piece recalibrates our brain, and injects greater admiration for this medium, quite the way Javier Prezs bleeding chandelier does. CarroaŽ (CarrionŽ) features a mutilated Rezzonico-style chandelier being torn apart by stuffed crows that are happy to claim the reward of a fight in which they took no part. It hurts to watch. To set the dramatic stage, Mr. Prez voluntarily smashed his spec-tacular red creation to pieces and left a translucent trail of blood on the floor. The sacrificial tone witnessed in earlier pieces is microscopic compared to this. The scene is raw and violent and feels real. Knowing the destruction was inten-tional, and those sharp beaks are not real, does nothing to suspend our strong belief that an actual creature is being eviscerated right before our eyes. All the displayed pieces, including Carroa,Ž were created at the Berengo Studio on the island of Murano, Italy. Two experienced installers traveled from Venice to put them together, said Ms. Goncharov. Nothing broke. GlasstressŽ is a bold attempt at weighting glasss emotional power against well-known contenders by let-ting it breathe and shine on its own. Rather than conforming to fit into a pre-determined weight class, the works have carved out a league of their own. As it turns out, glass can be looked at „ not just looked through.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 20-26, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY jan NORRISjan@jannorris.com PA BBQ eyes spot near Sears at The Gardens Mall FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEPA BBQ is going uptown „ to the mall. Dean Lavallee owner, said his barbecue restaurant from Lake Park will be taking the place of the recently closed Counter Burger in The Gardens Mall. Sure, its a risk, but I think well do OK there,Ž he said. A Gardens Mall spokesperson could not comment on the deal until the lease is signed; Mr. Lavallee said its with the law-yers, and expected to be signed this week. The restaurant would be PA BBQ & Grilles eighth location. They have stores from Port St. Lucie to Boynton Beach and out west to Wellington. Despite the gloom and doom predicted for malls in general, Mr. Lavallee believes they are more viable than ever „ for specific retailers. We need to touch the things were buying. Retail has become all show-rooms. The Restoration Hardwares and Crate and Barrels and West Elms all existed before online, but nobody was buying from them. We couldnt touch the merchandise and didnt trust it to be shipped, then have to ship it back when it wasnt right.Ž So, he said, Retail isnt dead „ but it is changing.Ž He thinks mall restaurants and quality food service are changing along with it. What were hearing from the mall is We want recognizable middle-market local brands. Thats PA BBQ, he said, and hes anxious to answer the call. I love that someone is inviting me to the party and I dont have to kick down the door.Ž He first looked at the closed Figs location next to Macys west entrance. Parking was a problem and it was too small as well, he thought. And Figs couldnt get footing, he said „ a problem he was about to tackle before think-ing better of it. I get myself in trouble trying to fix things other people failed at,Ž he said, laughing. Hell instead be on the north side of the mall between Sears and Bloomingdales An outdoor patio will allow a firepit and tables without afternoon sun glare. A patio is a long-held dream for all his new stores, he said. It also has an outside entrance, which can work to the restaurants advantage. He explained he wont have to rely sole-ly on a mall shopper for a client. Ive been eating a lot at Brio and P.F. Changs over the past month. What Ive noticed is most of their diners come in to eat and leave, and never even go to the mall. I think well attract both (shop-pers and destination diners).Ž Not to mention the malls employees.I think theyll welcome our brand,Ž he said. Mr. Lavallee wants to tweak the menu, incorporating farm-to-table foods, and adding a few approachable menu items from what he calls Americana „ his childhood eats. A modern take on a Pop Tart is one of them. It will be a way to test some things,Ž Mr. Lavallee said. But the mall owners have asked him to leave the barbecue concept intact and work around its core. We can do that. We have the backbone of 28 years of doing what were good at. Smoking, grilling and sauc-ing. We still want to champion smoked meats, ethic foods and local foods. We dont want to get so exotic people cant recognize the food.Ž A full liquor license, also in his longtime plans, is included in the new space, giving him a chance at increased bar business. Hes looking forward to changes planned for the mall, including the revamped Apple store, which is dou-bling in size to become one of two Apple superstores in the state. Talk of Dicks Sporting Goods coming to his end of the mall is a plus for him as well. Those are my customers.Ž He says mall owners are trying to create a one-up experience, bringing in new people and attracting back custom-ers who might have shifted to online shopping. New stores, and new restau-rants, such as the recently opened wine bar and restaurant, Coopers Hawk, will draw new visitors „ a win-win for everyone at the mall, he says. Its exciting for me. Just give me the chance to compete.Ž Mr. Lavallee is planning to open within three months. The good news and bad news about Dean is that Im not risk averse,Ž he said, laughing. Im really excited about this. Were really going to do it.ŽIn briefThe sun has set for Sun-Hai Tokyo the 14-year-old Chinese restaurant near Marshalls on PGA Boulevard. It was time for the owners to retire, according to the note on the door. Even after the plaza was redesigned, the restaurant changed little over the years, adding a sushi bar and refreshing the interior, but leaving untouched its money-papered foyer showing signatures of famous visi-tors. Its New York-style menu with an early-bird option remained a constant. No word on what might take its place. Q LAVALLEE COURTESY PHOTODean Lavallee would open a version of his PA BBQ & Grille in the spot occupied most recently by The Counter. The new location w ill have a patio and a firepit, he says.

The 8-ounce burger is topped with grated cheddar and a slice of Swiss cheese, jalapeos, two slices of bacon and a slightly spicy basting sauce that makes it sit up and sing. At first glance, we thought the sandwich was sitting atop hashed browns. It was then that we learned it actually was the grated cheddar cheese, grilled until crispy. The burger itself, once you got to it, was juicy and cooked medium to order. The challah bun also was perfectly toast-ed. But that cheese? It all was really too much, and much of it remained on the tray. Still, it was a tasty sandwich that lived up to its name. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Lik e the true Italian he is, Guanabanas Chef de Cuisine Vinny Trupia has a basil plant on his back porch. But until recent-ly, that was the extent of Chef Trupias gardening. As part of his restaurants Give Back Thursday events, Chef Trupia has part-nered with Jupiters El Sol Community Center to manage one of the community garden plots in Guanabanas name. The restaurant donates its entire yield to feed hungry locals at El Sol. I saw it as a good team-building exercise,Ž said Chef Trupia, who rallied his team of six sous chefs to the garden to turn dirt, plant vegetables, weed, water and harvest the plants. One of our sous chefs took his kids along to the garden and now he has them interested, too,Ž said Chef Trupia, an Oklahoma native who moved to South Florida in 2000. Its been a lot of fun,Ž he said of the gardening. Each of us gives and hour or two a week to the effort.Ž Helping the community is important, he said. We (the restaurant and staff) are so blessed with success and for me, being executive chef here is a lot of fun „ and a lot of work,Ž he said. We are happy to give back.Ž Guanabanas has done other community outreach programs, he said, including helping with the culinary pro-gram at Jupiter Middle School and with projects at Jupiter Christian School. Chef Trupia worked his way up in the restaurant business, starting as a dish-washer. He has held chef positions at Biancas Italian Bistro in Juno Beach, and Bar Louie in West Palm Beach. In 2008, he was hired as part of Guanabanas culinary team. Were all about the freshness and quality,Ž Chef Trupia said. Thats the key to our success. Were known for a fresh fish program. We purchase all our fish from Florida and Im in touch with our fishermen on a daily basis. I have a phenomenal team to work with me.Ž Chef Trupias father was a chef in Florida, but he wasnt his only inspiration. As a youngster, Chef Trupia watched his grandmother and mother prep and cook Sunday family meals, old-school Italian style. Guanabanas, which serves between 1,000 and 2,000 people on busy days, was founded by Jupiter surfers in 2004. The restaurant has become an institu-tion in northern Palm Beach County. The open-air waterfront restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts, towering banyan trees and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways is known for its lush, tropical setting, island-inspired cuisine, cocktails and live music from both national acts and the hottest names in South Florida. True to its roots, the restaurant still provides current surfing reports on its website. Vinny TrupiaAge: 35 Original hometown: New York City, though I grew up in Lawton, Okla.

Dentists used to rely on traditional black-and-white X-rays, which displayed only two-dimensional images, inaccurate in size and detail. The dentist could not see the bone, soft tissues or surrounding vital struc-tures beneath the gums, so he would have to approximate the location of surgical implant placement. X-rays are fine for finding decay in teeth, but for dental implant surgery, 3D CT scans are now considered the standard of careŽ in modern dentistry. A CT scan is a volumetric image of your teeth, jaws, and sur-rounding vital struc-tures. It shows, in high resolution and unpar-alleled detail, struc-tures not visible with traditional X-rays. 3D CT scans provide both three-dimensional and cross-section views that are much more accurate than traditional two-dimensional X-rays. These 3D computerized images provide detailed views of the facial structures that enable a qualified dentist to determine the quantity and quality of bone as well as bone density where the implants will be placed. Vital structures such as nerves and sinuses are precisely located to add a great measure of safety not offered with traditional X-rays. With a 3D CT scan, the doctor can properly assess your specific case to determine if youre eligible for dental implants, whether bone grafting is necessary and plan precisely where to place the implants With this information, the dentist can determine the proper treatment approach for each individual patient, including the correct implant type, size and position for optimal implant placement. These scans make implant placement more efficient and predictable while dra-matically reducing the time a patient spends in the dental chair. Cone beam CT technology emits very small amounts of radiation for the CT scan. In fact, the imaging requires less radiation than a traditional X-ray and the cone beam technology emits 80 to 100 times less radia-tion than a traditional medical grade CT scan of the same area. You are seated in an open area unlike an MRI scan-and the CT scanner moves around your head. The scan will take place in the dentists office and takes only 19 seconds.„ Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

Smart strategies for dealing with dementia D ementia comes in many forms and has many causes. There is Alzheimer s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and dementia caused by Parkin-sons or Huntingtons diseases. But did you know that dementia…likeŽ symptoms can be caused by adverse drug reactions, urinary tract infections and thyroid disorders? A deficiency in cer-tain vitamins like B12, or poor nutri-tion and dehydra-tion can also con-tribute to loss of brain function. If there are noticeable cognitive changes in an older loved one, dont dismiss it as dementia or a natural part of aging. There may be another diagnosis. Consult with a physician immediately. Sometimes after proper diagnosis and treatment, the symptoms can be reversed. When dementia strikes, the person struggles as they suddenly find their world unfamiliar, confusing and often hostile. Families struggle because strat-egies are needed to cope with certain behaviors like wandering and agitation. Remember that in one of my earlier arti-cles on Validation Therapy, I stressed that it is futile to try and bring the per-son with dementia into your framework of reality, it is more comforting and less confrontational to enter theirs. Here are some simple, smart strategies that can help your loved one when dealing with dementia. Start with these top five tips: Use what you already know about the person: The individual is not the dis-ease; remember their life history, likes and dislikes „ use their stories to better relate to them. Smile and speak simply: Body language and tone of voice must be non-threatening; keep conversations short and to the point to avoid confusion. Engage and encourage: Provide care in a relaxed manner; slow down and enable your loved one to do things for themselves; provide simple, enjoyable activities for stimulation. Dont argue „ distract instead: Acknowledge and respect what the person is saying and doing; ask questions about their memories, or talk about their life and what they like while guid-ing them to the desired activity. Step back from aggression: Agitation is often the result of an unmet need or reaction to an emotion; try to identify the trigger for the behavior and provide the solution rather than becoming angry or antagonistic. Education of the family and caregivers is critical to successfully car-ing for someone who has dementia. Making the most of your loved ones remaining abilities can prolong their independence. Stay positive about each accomplishment! Dont let it bother you if everything takes more time or isnt done to perfection. If you are consider-ing home care, keep in mind that profes-sional caregivers are specially trained to make the tasks of daily living as easy as possible for the person with dementia, and create a safe and comfortable envi-ronment while providing appropriate activities to prevent withdrawal. 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 disease or the daily demands of living with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

4 healthy living APRIL 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA nonsurgical procedure to improve orgasms and decrease urinary incontinence U p to 25 percent of women have an orgasmic dysfunction, which is defined as the persistent or recurrent delay or absence of orgasm following a normal sexual excitement phase. The list of reasons this might happen is long and includes medications, hor-mone issues, medi-cal problems or rela-tionship issues. The O-Shot is not a drug. Its a pro-cedure performed at Youthful Balance Medical Center in which your own blood platelets are injected into vaginal tissue. The theory proposed by the inventor, Dr. Charles Runels, is that plate-lets naturally attract your own stem cells to the injected area, therefore generate healthier and more functional tissue in the areas of sexual response in the vagina. This rejuvenation process helps women experience orgasms with sexual inter-course and increases the strength of the orgasms. This not only helps women feel empowered and confident in their sexual identity, but when women reach climax, a substance known as Oxytocin, is released in the body, which reduces stress and gives an enhanced sense of well-being. The O-Shot also treats urinary incontinence. Administered through the O-Shot, PRP triggers the release of growth and healing factors that stimulate the tissue to rejuvenate. Relief is typically experi-enced within one to two weeks following the O-Shot, and improvement continues over several weeks. Many patients have even had success resulting in reduced or eliminated need for medications used for treatment for urinary incontinence. Some have reported that they have completely stopped leaking urine after the O-Shot. With the O-Shot you can expect:Q Stronger and more frequent orgasmsQIncreased sexual desireQ Improved clitoral stimulationQ Increased natural lubricationQ Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasmQ Decreased urinary incontinenceQ Younger, smoother skin of the vulva (lips of the vagina)Q Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)Q Increased natural lubrication Women suffer silently when it comes to sexual problems. Reluctant to talk about it, often their condition goes untreated. There are many contributing factors to loss of sexual pleasure like menopause, childbirth, and even the natural aging process may result in sensation being lost, decreased sexual enjoyment and other functional issues in the vaginal region. Am I suitable for this treatment? It is estimated that as many as 1 in 20 women suffer from Female Sexual Arous-al Disorder, which means that, while they may want to have sex, they find it diffi-cult to get aroused, experience pleasure or achieve orgasm. Around 5 percent of women are also thought to suffer from Female Orgasmic Disorder, where they can become aroused but have difficulty achieving orgasm. Some women also suf-fer with pain during and after sex, which is not from decreased lubrication or vagi-nal spasm, some suffer from stress uri-nary incontinence. If you have any of these problems then the O-Shot could be a solution for you. As with any treatment, you will need to have a consultation first in order to assess your suitability and rule out any contra-indications. Does it hurt?As a nonsurgical solution, there is minimal pain and discomfort associated with the O-Shot treatment with some patients reporting experiencing no pain at all. The procedure is performed under local anes-thetic to minimize any pain. Is there any downtime/recovery time?One of the big advantages of the O-Shot treatment is that you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Sexual intercourse can even be resumed the same day. Q Call Youthful Balance Medical Center for your complimentary consultation today! Jennifer Nicholson Nurse Practitioner Youthful Balance 10887 N. Military Trail, No. 7, Palm Beach Gardens(561) 537-0537youthfulbalance.net Considering the pros and cons of health screening tests NATIONAL INSTITUES OF HEALTH Catching chronic health conditions early „ even before you have symptoms „seems like a great idea. Thats what screening tests are designed to do. Some screenings can reduce your risk of dying from the disease. But sometimes, experts say, a test might cause more harm than good. Before you get a test, talk with your doctor about the possible benefits and harms to help you decide whats best for your health. Screening tests are given to people who seem healthy in an effort to find unnoticed problems. Done before any signs or symptoms of the disease pres-ent themselves, these tests come in many forms. Your doctor might take your health history and perform a physi-cal exam to look for signs of health or disease. They can also include lab tests of blood, tissue or urine samples, and imaging procedures that look inside your body. I wouldnt say that all people should just simply get screening tests,Ž says Dr. Barnett Kramer, a cancer preven-tion expert at NIH. Patients should be aware of both the potential benefits and the harms when theyre choosing what screening tests to have and how often.Ž Teams of experts regularly look at all the evidence about the balance of ben-efits and harms of different screening tests. They develop guidelines for who should be screened and how often. Choosing whether you should be screened for a health condition isnt always easy. Screening suggestions are often based on your age, family health history and other factors. You might be screened for many conditions, includ-ing diabetes, sexually transmitted infec-tions, heart disease, osteoporosis, obe-sity, depression, pregnancy issues and cancers. Every screening test comes with its own risks. Some procedures can cause problems like bleeding or infection. A positive screening test can lead to fur-ther tests that come with their own risks. Most people who feel healthy are healthy,Ž says Dr. Kramer. So a nega-tive test to confirm that youre healthy doesnt add much new information.Ž But mistakenly being told that you do or dont have a disease can be harmful. Its called a misdiagnosis. A false negative means that youre told you dont have the disease, but you do. This can cause problems if you dont pay attention to symptoms that appear later on because you think you dont have the disease. A false positive means that youre told you may have the disease, but you dont. This can lead to unnecessary worry and potentially harmful tests and treatments that you dont need. Even correctly finding a disease through screening might not improve your health or help you live longer. You might learn you have an untreatable disease long before you would have. Or find a disease that never would have caused a problem. This is called over-diagnosis. Some cancers, for example, never cause symptoms or become life threatening, but they are likely to be treated if found by a screening test. Cancer treatments can have harsh and long-lasting side effects. Theres no way to know if the treatment will help you live longer. An effective screening test might decrease your chances of dying of the condition. Most have not been shown to lengthen your overall life expectancy, Dr. Kramer explains. Their usefulness varies and can depend on your risk fac-tors, age or treatment options. If youre at risk for certain health conditions „ because of a family his-tory or lifestyle exposures, like smoking „ you might choose to have screenings more regularly. If youre considering a screening, talk with your health care provider. Q Questionsfor your doctorabout screeningQ What’s my chance of dying of the condition if I do or don’t have the screening? Q What are the harms of the test? How often do they occur? Q How likely are false positive or false nega-tive results? Q What are possible harms of the diagnostic tests if I get a positive screening result? Q What’s the chance of nding a disease that wouldn’t have caused a problem? Q How effective are the treatment options? Q Am I healthy enough to take the therapy if you discover a disease? Q What are other ways to decrease my risk of dying of this condition?

Q Scripps scientists develop new drug delivery method SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY S cientists from the Florida cam-pus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have devel-oped a new drug delivery method that produces strong results in treating cancers in animal models, including some hard-to-treat solid and liquid tumors. The study, led by TSRI Associate Professor Christoph Rader, was published March 16, 2017, online ahead of print in the journal Cell Chemical Biology. The new method involves a class of pharmaceuticals known as antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), which include some of the most promising next-gener-ation antibody therapeutics for cancer. ADCs can deliver a cytotoxic payload in a way that is remarkably tumor-selective. So far, three ADCs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but neither attaches the drug to a defined site on the antibody. Weve been working on this technology for some time,Ž Rader said. Its based on the rarely used natural amino acid selenocysteine, which we insert into our antibodies. We refer to these engineered antibodies as selenomabs.Ž Antibodies are large immune system proteins that recognize unique molecular markers on tumor cells called antigens. On their own, Rader noted, antibodies are usually not potent enough to eradicate cancer. However, their high specificity for antigens makes them ideal vehicles for drug delivery straight to tumor cells. We now show for the first time that selenomab-drug conjugates, which are ADCs that utilize the unique reactivity of selenocysteine for drug attachment, are highly precise, stable and potent compositions and promise broad utility for cancer therapy.Ž Along with its potency, Rader noted, the ADCs stability is critical to its effectiveness. The researchers found that their new ADCs showed excellent stability in human blood in vitro and in circulating blood in animal models. Moreover, the new ADCs were highly effective against HER2 breast cancer, a particularly difficult cancer to treat, and against CD138 multiple myeloma. Importantly, the ADCs did not harm healthy cells and tissues. The selenomab-drug conjugate significantly inhibited the growth of an aggressive breast cancer,Ž said TSRI Research Associate Xiuling Li, first author of the study. Four of the five mice tested were tumor-free at the end of the experiment, a full six weeks after their last treatment.Ž The researchers plan to investigate similar ADCs going forward. Rader, along with TSRI Professor Ben Shen, was recently awarded $3.3 million from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health to test highly cytotoxic natural products dis-covered in the Shen lab using selenom-abs as drug delivery vehicles.

Make it a haven for sleep. Keep it cool (65 degrees), quiet (or soft calming sounds) and very dark. Remove phone, computer and books from your bedroom. Remove the TV or turn the brightness and volume down and put it on a sleep timer. Turn your alarm clock around so you dont watch the clock. Listen to soft, calming sounds and if you cant fall asleep within 20-30 minutes, go to another room and do something non-stimulating until you feel sleepy and then return to bed. € Habit Three: Develop a nightly relaxation ritual Turn off your mind and train your brain to expect sleep at about the same time every day. Consistency is key … perform relaxation ritual activities at the same time, in the same order, every night, night after night and on the week-ends. € Habit Four: Prepare your environment Eliminate bright lights. Dim lights three to four hours before bedtime, dim night lights in the bathroom, get the most comfortable mattress and pillows you can afford, block out ambient noise using a white noise generator if necessary, put out animals, remove clutter and try aromatherapy (research shows lavender works best). € Habit Five: Watch your internal clock (or Circadian Rhythm) Expose yourself to bright light at the same time every day when your day starts for about 30 minutes, go for a walk in the sun or have breakfast on a sunlit patio, get out of bed and start your day at the same time every day, regardless of how little you have slept. If you work at night and must drive home when the sun is out, wear the darkest sunglasses avail-able that will still allow you to drive safe-ly and wear them until you are inside. € Habit Six: Develop an exercise habit Exercise every day … this can include walking and stretching. Studies show that exercise benefits sleep including increases in deep sleep (Delta) and with sleep consolidation. Talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise routine. € Habit Seven: Assess your sleepKeep a sleep diary. Share with your doctor if you experience: snoring, which can be a sign of sleep apnea, a poten-tially deadly sleep disorder; any chronic sleep problem associated with daytime sleepiness; discomfort in the extremities, particularly the legs, that interferes with falling asleep or wakes you up at night; and/or chronic insomnia lasting longer than six months. To schedule an evaluation or sleep assessment, schedule a tour or if you have questions, please contact Jupiter Medical Centers Sleep Center at (561) 744-4478. Q SLEEPFrom page 1

10 healthy living APRIL 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYType 1, type 2 diabetes diagnoses on the rise among children and teens NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH R ates of new diagnosed cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are increasing among youth in the United States, according to a study published April 13 in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the United States, 29.1 million people are living with diagnosed or undi-agnosed diabetes, and about 208,000 people younger than 20 years of age are living with diagnosed diabetes.The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study is the first ever to estimate trends in new diagnosed cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in youth (those under the age of 20) from the five major racial/ethnic groups in the United States: non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, Hispanics, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders and Native Americans. (The Native American youth who participated in the study are not representative of all Native American youth in the United States. Thus, these rates cannot be generalized to all Native American youth nationwide.)Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, the SEARCH study found that from 2002 to 2012, incidence, or the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes in youth increased by about 1.8 percent each year. During the same period, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes increased even more quickly, at 4.8 percent. The study included 11,244 youth ages 0-19 with type 1 diabetes and 2,846 youth ages 10-19 with type 2. Because of the early age of onset and longer diabetes duration, youth are at risk for developing diabetes related complications at a younger age. This profoundly lessens their quality of life, shortens their life expectancy and increases health care costs,Ž said Dr. Giuseppina Imperatore, an epidemiologist in CDCs Division of Diabetes Translation, National Cen-ter for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The study results reflect the nations first and only ongoing assessment of trends in type 1 and type 2 diabetes among youth and help identify how the epidemic is changing over time in Americans under the age of 20 years.Key findingsQ Across all racial/ethnic groups, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes increased more annually from 2003-2012 in males (2.2 percent) than in females (1.4 percent) ages 0-19. Q Among youth ages 0-19, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes increased most sharply in Hispanic youth, a 4.2 percent annual increase. In non-Hispanic blacks, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes increased by 2.2 percent and in non-Hispanic whites by 1.2 percent per year. Q Among youth ages 10-19, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes rose most sharply in Native Americans (8.9 percent), Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders (8.5 percent) and non-Hispanic blacks (6.3 percent). The rates for Native Americans cannot be generalized to all Native American youth nationwide. Q Among youth ages 10-19, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes increased 3.1 percent among Hispanics. The smallest increase was seen in whites (0.6 percent). Q The rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes rose much more sharply in females (6.2 percent) than in males (3.7 percent) ages 10-19.Cause unclearThese findings lead to many more questions,Ž said Dr. Barbara Linder, senior advisor for childhood diabetes research at NIHs National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The dif-ferences among racial and ethnic groups and between genders raise many ques-tions. We need to understand why the increase in rates of diabetes development varies so greatly and is so concentrated in specific racial and ethnic groups.ŽType 1 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes in young people, is a condition in which the body fails to make insulin. Causes of type 1 diabe-tes are still unknown. However, dis-ease development is suspected to fol-low exposure of genetically predisposed people to an environmental trigger,Ž stimulating an immune attack against the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. In type 2 diabetes, the body does not make or use insulin well. Type 2 diabe-tes once was extremely rare in youth, but it has become more common in recent years. Several NIH-funded studies are directly examining how to delay, pre-vent, and treat diabetes. For more infor-mation, visit www.nih.gov.
