Woman pays it forward for Triangle ClubThe day her identical twin daughters were born eight years ago marked the first day of Kat Moores sobriety. She had struggled with alcohol and drugs during her pregnancy, but on that day she found the strength to make the changes she needed for herself and for her babies. She had checked into Gratitude House in West Palm Beach, a treatment facility in West Palm Beach that specialized in treatment for women with children one of only a few in the country at the time. During that time, she often took her twins (Hope and Faith) with her to meetings at The Triangle Club, which provides a haven for recovering alcoholics and their families to learn and grow. Once her treatment at Gratitude House was complete, she moved into womens housing through The Lords Place and continued to go to school, work, support her two daughters and work on her recovery. Today, Ms. Moore, who grew up in Jupiter, is a graphic designer and videographer and is also a committee member of The Third Annual Lions of Recovery Reception & Dinner on Nov. 4. The event will benefit The Triangle Club Inc. The Triangle Club has provided a safe place where I go to attend meetings, meet with sponsors and socialize with other people in different stages of recovery, Ms. Moore, 38, said. She shares her story with SEE TRIANGLE, A8 EAREST READERS: THE PARTY WEEK WEVE ALL EAREST READERS: THE PARTY WEEK WEVE ALL been waiting and prepping for since last been waiting and prepping for since last October is nigh upon us.

COMMENTARYThe United States of AlabamaHaving lived in Mississippi for almost a decade, there is not too much to be learned about Alabama that I dont already know. The Magnolia State is pretty much in the running for dead-last as compared to other states on issues of economic prosperity, educational attainment, lowest rates of poverty, health and wellness and racial progress; Alabama is generally reliable as close or second-to-dead-last on the same quotidian measures. If you live in Mississippi and look across the state line into Alabama, you recognize what you see.Both states institutionalized systemic discrimination against African-Americans. State legislatures codified secondclass citizenship for black people into the rule of law, social and economic policy, and social norms governing every aspect of racial relations, as in the use of public transportation and water fountains, for example. White people set the rules. Black people were expected to follow them or suffer the consequences. And we all know, there were horrific consequences. Intimidation backed up by the threat of physical violence against African-Americans was commonplace. I remember once reading a report from a survey conducted by Mississippis Department of Tourism that fear was the No. 1 reason more black people didnt visit the state. The post-agrarian promoters of the New South sought to overcome the regions backwardness and address its issues of racial injustice. But neither Mississippi nor Alabama was so inclined. Preserving our way of life was code for keeping black people in their place. Both states paid a price, failing to achieve the quality of life had state leaders been wiser, more enlightened, and chosen more justly. Their choices robbed the states of human capital and the capacity to compete economically as compared to other states. What Mississippi and Alabama did excel in was defending the indefensible, including racially motivated murders and discrimination, wage slavery, separate and unequal schools, denial of voting rights and corruption of the rule of law. It is why both states became notoriously bloody battlegrounds during the American Civil Rights Movement. White supremacists murdered and assassinated African-Americans and civil rights workers, burning and bombing more than 300 black churches, all with impunity. Birminghams 16th Street Baptist Church was the site of a bombing in 1963 that injured 14 and killed four young girls attending Sunday school. In Mississippi, three young men who had participated in Freedom Summer, a 1964 campaign to register black voters, were murdered. The horrific killings spurred Congress to pass, with Democratic support, The Civil Rights Act of 1964. But the Democrats were no saints on issues of racial justice. It was The States Rights Democratic Party, the Dixiecrats, who debuted the Confederate battle flag in 1948 to rally white supremacists and champion segregation. The approval of the legislation opened the door for Richard Nixon and the GOP to cultivate white Southerners disaffected by the Democrats support of the bill, driving a stake into the heart of the Democrats solid South. The GOP today owes its dominance in national politics to the South. It is the engine room of the partys right-wing extremism. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is from Alabama. In 1986, he was the U.S. Attorney in Mobile when the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected his nomination for a federal judgeship. Sessions had a tainted history of discriminatory attitudes and behaviors toward African-Americans that made his views racially suspect. They still are. Last month, Alabama Republicans chose Roy S. Moore in the GOP Senate primary runoff. During the era of George H.W. Bush, he was known nationally for his right-wing extremism and virulent, anti-gay views. Since then, he has been twice defrocked as an Alabama Supreme Court Judge for flouting the authority of the federal court system and for violating Alabamas canon of judicial ethics. In 2003, he defied orders to remove from under the dome of the Alabama judiciary building a two-ton block of granite inscribed with the Ten Commandments. He ordered it installed in the dead of night, much to the surprise of his fellow justices. Alabamans took no offense and re-elected him in 2010. He again was suspended for the rest of his term for instructing the states 68 probate judges to ignore a Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. Moore has publicly stated that the First Amendment protects only Christians, 9/11 was Gods retribution for societys evil and Obama isnt an American citizen. The Democratic opponent Moore will face in December is Douglas Jones. Charles D. Pierce wrote in Esquire about Jones: In 2001, Jones convicted two men for the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham in 1963, one of the iconic white supremacist terrorist acts of that period. One of those bastards already died in prison and the other keeps getting denied parole. If youd rather be represented in the Senate by a lawless theocratic lunatic, rather than a guy that finally got justice for four murdered little girls, well, you deserve anything that goddam happens to you. If extremists like Moore triumph, welcome to the United States of Alabama.

OPINIONFiguring costsLet me start with a breakdown of comparative values. One trillion. If Im not mistaken, a trillion is made up of a thousand billions. Thats a lot of billions. A billion a single solitary billion is made up of a thousand millions. And a million? A million bucks isnt much in the long run, not at a mere thousand thousands. But itll get you a good weekend in Paris, thats for sure, or an ice cream sundae from the Royal Scoop in Bonita Springs for $10.02, with tax included and change to spare. When you figure costs, you should always look at the things you want right now and the things you may not want or ever see, even if youre paying for them. Say you want a good evening meal right now, so you sashay into Naples and wind up at Sea Salt. Youd better figure on paying $200 per person or more. But what if youve had hors doeuvres and dinner with wine, and suddenly (its a nice night for a cross-state drive, after all) you find yourself craving a room for two at the Breakers in Palm Beach? Well, friend, thats going to cost you. The place runs at least $600 a night, and thats just for a broom closet. You have some money in your pocket, obviously. So the next morning you decide you need either a glorious investment or another delicious expense. You consider buying the violin made by Arthur Catton Lancaster and used by Wallace Hartley for $1.7 million, but you reject the idea. You cant drive a violin, to start with you probably cant play it, either and you wouldnt want to take this lovely little fiddle on your yacht (cost for the Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht with two 1,600 HP CAT 32A diesel engines, about $5 million). Mr. Hartley, the bandleader, used the instrument to play Nearer My God To Thee as the Titanic went down. It tends to sink boats, apparently. Itll be another car, then, and Palm Beach County has all the sporty ones: say a Lamborghini for $200,000, a topend Porsche for roughly half that, or a Chevy Corvette for about $55,000. Maybe you just buy the three together, an automotive triptych. All thats fun toss in a house for a couple or $5 million (only a tiny fraction of a billion, after all) and itll be even more fun, but dont buy it near the beach. When your kid reaches 40 or 50, itll be underwater. So that settles that. Now, what about the things you dont want or need, or may not even see, even though youre paying for them? Bridges, for example. If you decide to build the Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway over Tampa Bay stretching about four miles long and 430 feet high, complete with 84 steel tubes that encase steel cables supporting the main span, youre going to pay $244 million at least you would have in 1987. In todays dollars that would be about $526 million a mere half-billion, or so. But how often are you going to use that bridge? Not to worry, it still has investment value. Even decades later travelers have to pay $1.25 to cross the Sunshine Skyway, and about 50,000 do every day. So were raking in almost $23 million a year, just from tolls. Such bridges probably exist all over the U.S. of A., along with other public investments some people use and some dont. Libraries, for example. Parks. Public education, which isnt cheap. The public schools budget for Palm Beach County last year was $2.31 billion thats 2,310 million, by the way and worth it, I hope. Lee County spent $1.4 billion, Collier spent $977 million, and Charlotte came in at a paltry $247.8 million. Im still good with those costs. Heck, Im even happy to pay $16 to $20 billion to fix the Everglades and Floridas entire water system from near Orlando south to Florida Bay. Thats the cost figured by the Army Corps of Engineers for the total 30-year package, known as the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. Id do it in two years, though, not 30. Probably save money and more than a few tourist businesses. But now Ive reached the limit of my spending tolerance. Because I hate the cost of the current wars. I dont want to spend another nickel on another grain of sand in Iraq or Afghanistan, and certainly not in a tangle with the North Koreans or anybody else no, sir. Though the numbers are slippery, the costs of Iraq and Afghanistan alone are ridiculous no matter who figures them: almost $5 trillion so far, according to Brown Universitys Cost of War project. Remember: a trillion is 1,000 billions, and each billion is 1,000 millions. For even a single trillion, therefore, you could fix the entire Everglades ecosystem at least 50 times. For $5 trillion you could fix it 250 times. What really bothers a cost-minded hound like me, though, is the waste of good blood money. At some point in the not-too-distant past, the death count alone for Americans reached 3,019 in Afghanistan, and 4,520 in Iraq. Thats 7,539 bodies shipped home in flag-draped caskets since 2002. Now look, people, thats just economically wrong. The human body carries about 1.5 gallons of blood, which is 12 pints. The cost of a single pint of redcell blood product now on the market runs in the $120 to $150 range. So by my scrupulous calculations, weve just thrown away 90,468 pints of good American blood. Taken at an average value, say, of $135 a pint, I figure weve squandered $12,213,810, right there. What a waste. Tillerson should goIf Secretary of State Rex Tillerson resigned, how would anyone know? He has become the nations least influential top diplomat in recent memory. His relationship with the president of the United States is strained at best, he has no philosophy or signature initiative, he has barely staffed his own department, and hes alienated the foreign service. The former CEO of ExxonMobil has taken one of the power positions in the U.S. government and made it an afterthought. Who knows the truth of the NBC story that he was close to quitting last summer over clashes with President Donald Trump? But Tillersons strange press availability swearing his loyalty to the president is not the sort of thing loyalists usually have to do. The secretary of state dodged questions about whether he had, indeed, as NBC reported, called Trump a moron almost certainly the first time in U.S. history a Cabinet official has been asked about personally insulting the president he works for and apparently been unable, in good conscience, to deny it. Tillerson doesnt have an easy job. He works for a mercurial and bombastic boss who has a well-developed skill for humiliating his underlings. Even a practiced and slick diplomat even Henry Kissinger; heck, even Cardinal Richelieu would find the circumstances trying. But Tillerson is at sea. Hes an accomplished man who ascended to the leadership of a quasistate as CEO of ExxonMobil. As such, he had done plenty of work abroad. It was in business, though, not government. Unlike, say, James Mattis advising Trump on defense matters, this is not a professional guiding an amateur; its another amateur trying to school an amateur. Is it any wonder that it hasnt gone well? In a nationalist administration, he is a man without a country. He doesnt have a constituency in the foreign-policy establishment, in the media, in Congress or in the bureaucracy. Neither of the opposing dispensations in American foreign policy should feel vested in Tillerson. If youre a liberal internationalist who wants Trump checked, youd prefer someone better suited to the task. If youre a Trumpist who wants Trump empowered to transform American foreign policy, you want someone who is in sympathy with that goal.Tillerson has been on the other side of Trump on big issues like the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal. Theres no doubt that Trumps instincts need to be restrained and channeled. Thats different from trying to frustrate them, which is bound to run afoul of Dean Achesons maxim: The most important aspect of the relationship between the president and the secretary of state is that they both understand who is president. Tillersons diplomatic skills havent yet been tested on anything important. At this point, he probably fails a threshold test: Can he reliably be thought to speak for the United States government? The former ExxonMobil chief might imagine himself indispensable as a minder of the president. Yet Trump is now surrounded by generals who no one doubts are responsible and influential. If Tillerson left, the government would operate as before except with a chance thered be a secretary of state better suited to the role.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickTaking a pet to the emergency hospital is something none of us wants to do. Its scary and stressful for you and your dog or cat. Weve been there more times than we like to think about, and we have some tips to help you cope. We hope you wont ever need to use them, but tuck them away in the back of your mind just in case. Protect yourself when handling a sick or injured animal. Even the most docile dog or cat can bite when in pain. Keep a muzzle on hand or ask your veterinarian to show you how to safely tie one using a scarf or tie. Be patient. Your pet wont be seen in the order of arrival. Animals who are most unstable will be seen first. We do them in order of medical need, says our friend and colleague Dr. Tony Johnson, an emergency and critical care specialist at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. If I have a hit-by-car and a dog with diarrhea, even if the dog with diarrhea has been waiting two hours, the hit-by-car is going to get seen first. The only time someone jumps that line, he says, is if theyre bringing in a pet to be euthanized.Be prepared to wait as little as five minutes or as long as six hours. It all depends on what other cases are there or come in while youre waiting. If you think about it before you leave the house, grab a book or your iPod in case youll be there for a while.If possible, have someone go with you or meet you there. You may need help getting your pet in and out of the car and into the hospital. And its always good to have someones hand to hold while youre waiting. Designate a single person to communicate with the veterinarian, so he or she doesnt have to repeat information to multiple family members. Take notes or record the conversation on your smartphone so you can refer back to it. Dont forget your wallet in your mad rush out of the house. Most veterinary hospitals wont treat your pet without proof that you can pay for care. Your regular veterinary hospital might do that if youve been a client for years they know where you live and that youre probably not going to skip town but an emergency hospital isnt in that position. It sounds avaricious, but there are not too many emergency hospitals that are going to do something on a handshake, Dr. Johnson says. ERs usually see people once. They cant separate out the people who are a risk of not paying from those who arent. Theyre not trying to be greedy. Know when to go. Some things are obvious. Take your pet to the emergency hospital in the following situations: Allergic reactions Any animal bite Bloated belly Bloody diarrhea Difficulty breathing Distress from excessively hot or cold temperatures Eye injuries Frequent or projectile vomiting Heavy bleeding Ingestion of a toxic substance, such as antifreeze, human medications or snail bait Seizures Serious trauma, such as being hit by a car Straining to urinate or defecate Sudden lameness Unconsciousness or collapse Venomous snake or spider bitesIf youre not sure, well, we recommend erring on the side of caution. Like their counterparts in human medicine, veterinary emergency clinics are expensive, but sometimes the cost of a visit is a price worth paying for peace of mind. And when a visit saves your pets life? Priceless.

Ms. Moore and her husband, Dave, live in Lake Park with the twins and two teenagers, a girl and a boy who recently lost their mother, a friend of Ms. Moores from Gratitude House. Were a family of six now, she said. Its not easy, but they are doing well. She is working on a degree in video production at Palm Beach State College and is a graphic designer, videographer and video editor at Money Concepts International Inc. in Palm Beach Gardens. I have always enjoyed creating art and communicating with people, she said. This is a field where I can do both with my videos, graphic design and editing. And I enjoy traveling with the company to attend conferences and have video shoots with the financial advisors. Learning to do new things and spending long days between her family, school and work isnt easy, but shes up to the tasks. Im not scared to work hard, she said. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the gym, rollerblading, reading, painting, doing yoga, spending time with her family, her dogs and friends. And she still attends meetings and events at the Triangle Club. Her involvement with the club and participation in its upcoming annual fundraiser speaks to her commitment to raising awareness about the institution, which has provided so much to her and others in the recovery community. Since it was founded in 1961, the Triangle Club has played a vital role in helping support recovering alcoholics, and is currently recognized as one of the leading recovery clubhouses in the U.S. Last year, the club launched a Back to Work initiative to help those new in recovery start to rebuild their lives through employment and on-the-job skills training. In its first year, the program helped 36 people find work that allowed them to build a solid sober foundation and become contributing members of society when they may otherwise have had difficulties getting back on their feet.

Yes, friends, the clouds of glitter in the air can only mean one thing. Its almost time for Fantasy Fest here in Key West, and the bodies large, small, taut, squidgy, old, young and many nearly naked have already started arriving in droves. Maybe youve been stuck under a very large rock for the past few decades. If so, youre forgiven for not knowing what Fantasy Fest is. Allow me to explain. Begun in 1979 as a way of boosting an otherwise dull and deserted time of year in Key West, this 10-day adults-only festival has since morphed into the largest event in the Keys, and one of the most unique and popular of its kind in the country. Imagine Halloween and Mardi Gras got very, very drunk one night in late January and nine months later that beautiful union begat Fantasy Fest. To hear locals tell it, the event started out small quaint, even with early themes like Old Key West and Plays of Tennessee Williams. Over time, it developed a decidedly more adult attitude (most participants of last years Political Voodoo & Ballot Box Barbarians seemed to have been bused in from a campaign caucus where clothes are irrelevant, but silver body paint is ubiquitous). Its doubtful that founding member Joe Liszka could have foreseen todays current iteration of Fantasy Fest. Joe, who in 9 was busy serving as the president of the Tourist Development Association of Monroe County, spent his days wracking his brain for strategies to attract more tourists to the Keys in the off-season. Always popular during the winter months amongst tourists fleeing the cold, business dropped significantly after the weather became more pleasant north of Miami. The snowbirds flew back to their nests, so to speak, leaving empty hotels and bars and plummeting profits behind them. According to the official history of Fantasy Fest, Joe led fellow TDA board member Frank Romano down to Duval Street on Halloween and asked him to report what he saw when the twosome arrived at the quiet, uninhabited roadside. It turned out to be a trick question; Romano saw nothing, which was, Joe explained, precisely the point. The islands residents and shopkeepers had developed a distinctly European habit of boarding up their homes and businesses and leaving for vacation en masse during the scorching fall months of September and October. To Joe, there was no reason that Key West should conform to the typical tourist-driven template of high season/low season occupancy. Key West was sunny and strange all year round why should its visitors not take advantage of that fact all 365 days of the year? He felt the island needed an injection of fun, something exciting that would draw crowds and reinvigorate the community during what had become a decidedly dreary time to be in the Keys. Almost 40 years later, Fantasy Fest still celebrated during the 10 days leading up to Halloween has become the largest and most profitable of all of Key Wests events. Hotels, B&Bs and private rental homes sell out months in advance, with nightly rates skyrocketing in response. (During 2016s election-themed Fantasy Fest, a single hotel room was reportedly rented for almost $700, twice its yearly average rate of $350.) In the weeks leading up to Oct. 31, costume stores spring up seemingly overnight, their aisles overflowing with feather boas, fishnet stockings, masks, makeup and wigs. But for some annual attendees, prep begins far more than a few weeks before the festivals start. With many of the festivals events offering thousands of dollars in cash prizes, seasoned attendees begin work on their costumes six to eight months in advance, or more, with results ranging from Broadway-worthy ensembles to skimpy outfits bordering on obscene. Historically, Key West has been an oasis for some of our nations most dedicated drinkers. Indeed, during Prohibition, Florida remained the wettest state in the Union, maintaining its touristdriven economy thanks to regular ocean shipments of fish curiously shaped like bottles of bootleg liquor. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, drugs were sold on Duval Street with the kind of vocal salesmanship now relegated to Spring Break T-shirt hawkers. Though eventually the island was forced to clean up its act (thanks to a wonderfully devious scheme perpetrated by FBI agents dressed as karate enthusiasts), there exists today a common misconception that, during Fantasy Fest, the usual laws are suspended in favor of an agreed upon 10-day no holds barred celebration that would make Hugh Hefner blush. The truth, however, is a bit less exciting: on Friday, Oct. 27, and Saturday, Oct. 28, a barrier is established around a few blocks of Duval and its adjoining streets, creating an official Fantasy Zone, inside the perimeter of which revelers may carry open (plastic) containers of alcohol. Backpacks, coolers, water guns and replica weapons are banned for obvious reasons, while mounted officers astride a herd of formidable, glossyhocked police horses perform crowd control duties. Technically, public nudity is illegal in Key West, but during Fantasy Fest that law in particular seems to stretch to about a millimeter before its breaking point, much to the delight of participants (and, sometimes, to the horror of a few wide-eyed families fresh off a Disney cruise ship whose travel agent neglected to mention their wholesome vacation would coincide with the raunchiest time of the year in the Keys). Body painting studios pop up along the length of Duval Street with women ranging from nubile to decrepit lining up to have their torsos painted which, the Key West Police urge people to remember, still does not actually constitute wearing a top. Therefore, the city requests that all bare breasts (painted to appear as twin Basset hounds or otherwise) remain inside the designated Fantasy Zone. This years official Fantasy Fest themed Time Travel Unravels will begin with one of the events only PG-rated parties, the Goombay Festival. Spanning the weekend of Oct. 20, Goombay sees the historic neighborhood of Bahama Village turned into a kind of folksy, exuberant block party, complete with food and craft stalls, though the heart of the festival is undoubtedly the nonstop musical performances. Featuring a wide range of acts including reggae, funk and gospel, the stage at the intersection of Petronia and Fort streets becomes an inclusive dance party for the islands residents and tourists just beginning their Fantasy Fest vacation. Its a joyful two days, accented by the delicious smell of street meat and the promise of all the frozen drinks in hollowed-out fruit your little lush heart could ever desire. Of course, no Fantasy Fest is complete without its special brand of monarchy. For those unfamiliar with the symbolic coronation of the King and Queen of Fantasy Fest, youre in luck: everyone is welcome to attend the official Royal Coronation at the Casa Marina on Oct. 20. In true Key West fashion, the election of this years monarchy is less pomp and circumstance, more flamboyant fabulousness, with a two-hour stage show and appearances by local celebrities. Once crowned, the King and Queen (awarded for having raised the most money for AIDS Help during their campaign) will preside over the rest of the weeks parties, parades, galas and fetes. If altruism is your thing, swing by the USCGC Ingham, a Coast Guard cutter-turned-Maritime Memorial Museum, designated a national memorial to guardians killed in action in World War II and Vietnam. The crew is hosting an Escape Room party. On Friday night, guests can navigate the bowels of the historic ship while solving puzzles in an attempt to break Neptunes curse, thereby saving the entire world. Weve certainly accomplished less on a Friday night. Let the kids bask in the glory of their heroism, then leave them at home for a decidedly R-rated version of one of their favorite fairy tales. Taking it Off to See the Wizard: A Burlesque Parody will see Key Wests best burlesque performers team up with special guests bearing saucy names like Moana Amour and Cheeky Derriere, all hell-bent on subverting the classic childrens story by way of artful striptease. The show runs for six nights only at the Waterfront Playhouse, and after the success of last years Peter Pans Adventures in Naughty Land, its sure to sell out fast. Though not an official Fantasy Fest event, Sundays ever-popular Zombie Bike ride is certainly not to be missed. What started as a rag-tag bunch of weirdos careening down South Roosevelt in zombie makeup has evolved into a traffic-stopping, nation news-covered theme ride from East Martello to downtown Duval Street. Though the event has become less of a ride than a startand-stop, slow-moving parade of fantastically zombified riders trying not to FANTASYFrom page 1 ANDY NEWMAN / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUThe 2016 Fantasy Fest Parade on Duval Street.ROB ONEAL / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAURevelers portraying U.S. Olympic athletes make their way down Duval Street during the 2016 Fantasy Fest Parade in Key West.

crash into one another, bike traffic along the four-mile route usually decongests enough towards the end of the highway to allow for a friendly breeze or two. There are no limits or expectations for costumes; some riders look ready for their next scene on The Walking Dead, while others might smear some fake blood on their shirt and call it a day, but the more effort you put into your costume, the better, since families camp out in chairs along the way, cheering and filming. Its a unique spectacle to be sure, so tell friends out of town to keep an eye out you might just make the evening news. Oct. 23 starts out with a bang of a starters gun, that is when the annual Heroes and Villains Run/Walk 5K takes off from the Southernmost Beach Caf. Dress up as your favorite hero or villain, make your way to the finish line as fast as you can, and youll be in the running (pun intended) for prizes like funniest costume, most creative and more. The run ends, as all runs should, with a sunset beach party, after which the beach transforms into a pig roast. Forty-five bucks gets you access to a buffet chock full of Cuban classics like sofrito, yucca, tostones, picadillo and roast pork. Tickets for the luau can be purchased at www.keystix.com. On the other side of the spectrum, the unofficial but always titillating Kinky Karnival, now at the brand-new First Flight Island Restaurant & Brewery (301 Whitehead St.) kicks off at 8 p.m. on Monday night, with costumes required for entry and make no mistake, these are some serious fetishists. The longstanding tradition has resulted in Monday nights becoming an informal Fetish Night island-wide. Keep an eye out for pop-up BDSM parties (how many times have you heard that one at home?) and enjoy wandering around the Fantasy Zone for your first glimpse at just how far some people try to push the boundaries of I swear, officer, Im not naked. Oct. 24 offers up a whole range of festivities, including an animal-themed all-you-can-drink SPCA party, the official Fantasy Fest Poster Signing party, a Beach Bash featuring Patrick and the Swazyees, and of course, the always epic Captain Tonys Party in Plaid, aka the perfect excuse for having held onto those horrifying madras pants for all these years. For a more obvious thrill, theres also the Men of Lab are Tighty Whitey Party, featuring the all-male Adonis-like revue made famous by the Magic Mike movies. Dress code encourages sexy white underwear (not an oxymoron, contrary to what Cosmopolitan and GQ have to say) and tickets are limited. If it was good enough for national treasure Channing Tatum, its more than good enough for Key West. One of this authors favorite non-officially sponsored events is Tutu Tuesday at the Waterfront Brewery (201 William St.). This years theme is Tutu Prom, so bust out that awful three-piece suit or puffy dress, throw a tutu on it, and make sure you and your date get that prom pose down. Wednesday through Saturday are when Fantasy Fest really gets going, with multiple themed parties some official, some unsanctioned happening throughout downtown. Some of the legendary ones: Wednesdays Pet Masquerade, where a procession of costumed pets and their incredibly crafty owners make their way across a stage at the Casa Marina to compete for prizes; Wharfstock, where prototypical pirate hangout Schooner Warf transforms itself into a psychedelic love-child groove fest, complete with body painting contest; the 35th annual Headdress Ball on Thursday, where the phrase the higher the headdress, the closer to God gets tested for serious cash prizes; Seor Frogs ABC party, where anything but clothes gets you in the door (the other side of which bunnies from Nevadas most famous brothel are waiting, along with exotic dancers and cash prizes for the most creative costumes); an all-day, all-night street fair with crafts, food, and last-minute souvenirs; the 16th annual Living Art Expo, where the best human canvases are awarded thousands of dollars; a White Party, Red Party, Blue Party, Pink Party, Toga Party, Slumber Party, Kinky Couples Party, Glow Party, Pirate Party, Foam Party, Nerd Party, and Pajama Party; and, of course, the Dungeon of Dark Secrets party, which is exactly what it sounds like. There are also two massive parades: the first, the locals-favorite Masquerade March, happening Oct. 27, for which thousands of costumed pedestrians gather to parade themselves through downtown. And then, theres Saturdays pice de rsistance: The Official Fantasy Fest Parade, a confetti-throwing, band-booming, float-filled colorful masterpiece to end the festival on a very, very loud note. If youre still alive by Sunday, congratulations! May we suggest scraping yourself off the floor and attending the annual Fat Lady Sings Tea Dance at La Te Da. We have it on very good authority that yes, there will be a fat lady present, yes, she will sing, and that afterward, all of it, finally, will be over. At least, until we learn the theme for next year.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Palm Beachs iconic Colony Hotel turns 70 this year and has new owners who want to make sure guests of all ages will have fun and feel pampered while vacationing together. As parents of three young children, owners Andrew and Sarah Wetenhall, who are in their early 40s, say it is essential for The Colony to cater to the whole family. The Wetenhalls, from New York, bought the historic Colony, which includes three properties on Hammon Avenue, last December. If the name sounds familiar, its because Andrew Wetenhalls father, Robert, was the principal owner of the hotel from 1970 to 1990 and still lives on the property in a penthouse apartment. He is Andrews and my biggest cheerleader, Mrs. Wetenhall said of her fatherin-law. The Palm Beach experience is often a multigenerational one, said Mrs. Wetenhall, president and CEO. It is grandparents, parents and children all vacationing together. With children in mind, the 89-room hotel has already become more family-friendly, Mrs. Wetenhall said.

Theyre here for an amazing experience. At check-in, children will get a little backpack with a Palm Beach coloring book and crayons, stickers and postcards from local businesses that cater to children, she said. When they arrive in their room, therell be a stuffed animal version of the monkey JB, Johnnie Brown, a take on Addison Mizners pet monkey. Hell be sitting in the room waiting for them with a little note. The hotel also is introducing childrens menus, something it hadnt done previously. Childrens bikes and pool toys around the pool will also enhance the experience for the hotels smallest guests. We will be popping up special programing for children throughout the year, Mrs. Wetenhall said. The first thing well be doing is having a breakfast with Santa the weekend before Christmas. New amenities arent limited to children, of course. Were going to have branded bikes available and childrens bikes so that guests can tool about the island, she said. Were going to have paddleboards and we have a beach butler program that were launching. Well be able to give guests a lift down to the beach in our beach buggy and well have chaise lounges, towels and beach umbrellas that our valet will run down and set up. Guests will be able to have a picnic hamper full of all their favorite foods and beverages and, when theyre ready to come back to hotel, they can send a text and someone will come by to pick them up. Were bringing the beach to The Colony, Mrs. Wetenhall said, making it really streamlined. The buggy will big helpful to families, she said. I know we are so close to the beach, but when Im here with my three little ones and towels and totes and everything else, crossing A1A can be tricky. I can only hold so many hands at once. Also new is a guest services department. Theyre here and booking in-room massages and we have yoga by the pool on Wednesday and Saturday mornings free for any guests at the hotel, she said. Were rounding out our suite of services, sort of taking the tack of offering resort services but offered within the environment of a hotel, she said. We have a limousine provider that will pick you up and take you back to the airport. Mrs. Wetenhall says she fondly remembers her first visit to The Colony 20 years ago when she was a college student. We were here for Valentines Day weekend, which also happens to be my father-in-laws birthday, she said. It was a special occasion, but not as romantic as you might think. We were here to visit my father-in-law and thats actually the first time I met him. She thought her father in law was larger than life. And 20 years later, he is still an amazingly gentle and lovely man and he remains larger-than-life. And the hotel itself? My first thought was this is perhaps the most magical place on Earth, she said. And my second thought was this is the best kept secret on Palm Beach. The island, the ocean, the hotel, it is the trifecta. How could everyone not know about this? To reflect the hotels modern-classic status, the Wetenhalls are reintroducing The Colonys original 1947 logo and branding, a graceful, swirling treatment full of Palm Beach refinement and elan. Over the years, the boutique hotel has played host to musical legends, movie stars, presidents, and was once called the winter home of The Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The Colony, though, treats everyone like a VIP, said Lloyd Van Horn, general manager, who joined the hotel team in April. At a total of 89 guest rooms, including 14 suites, seven villas and three penthouses, Mr. Van Horn said, we are able to deliver bespoke service at the ultra-boutique level, while at the same time providing access to a huge range of resort and local experiences. The hotels Royal Room, a premier cabaret, will continue to showcase popular performances with the seasonal lineup soon to be announced. The hotel recently completed a fouryear, $14 million renovation project overseen by interior designer Carleton Varney, president of Dorothy Draper & Co. Were definitely blessed with a physical plant that is in excellent, excellent shape, Mrs. Wetenhall said. I am not a hotelier by trade and neither is my spouse (he is an investment banker in Manhattan), Mrs. Wetenhall said. I have spent a decade-plus working public relations marketing and advertising in the fashion industry. A residual piece of this hotel running comes naturally to me, but the operational part of hospitality is certainly new, although I was raised a bit of a nomad. Ive lived in New York now for 20 years, but prior to New York, Ive never lived in the same place for more than four years. Travel is in my blood, living about is in my blood, so Im pretty well suited for the hospitality industry. Rates at The Colony vary depending on the season and room type.

A16 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYThe pain of buying a used or new car may be greater than the pain of having it serviced, but you need to have it serviced far more often than you have to buy a car. Here are my eight suggestions to make your visit to your car dealers service department as pleasant as possible. 1. Choose the dealer with the best service department. Remember that you dont have to have the same dealership service your car that sold you your car. You probably bought your car from the dealer who gave you the best price. You should have your car serviced at the dealer who can best maintain and repair your car. The price of service is important, but secondary to the quality of the service and repairs. Do a little research. Go online and check Google reviews. Make sure to read the bad reviews as well as the good ones; you may be able to discover patterns of bad behavior. Ask friends and neighbors who drive your make of car. Check with the BBB and the County Office of Consumer Affairs. 2. Establish a personal relationship with your service advisor. The person in the service drive who writes up your repair order is very important. Be sure you get a good one. He should be knowledgeable, attentive to your needs, promptly return phone calls and recommend only necessary services. You might not find this person on your first visit, but if you arent comfortable with the person you are dealing with, ask for one with whom you are. When you make an appointment to have your car serviced, always ask for that service advisor. 3. Dont pay the gotcha, miscellaneous supplies fee. Almost all car dealers tack on a phony fee when you pay your bill which is simply more profit to the dealer, but is disguised by various labels. It is also sometimes called environmental impact fee, sundry shop supplies and many others. The cashier just adds a percentage ranging from 5 percent to 10 percent to your bill. This is no different than the dealer fee that the sales department tacked onto the price they quoted you on the price of the car. Most dealers will waive this fee if you complain about it, especially if you threaten to call the BBB, their manufacturer or the Florida Attorney Generals office. 4. Always road test your car, preferably with the technician. If you brought your car in for a drivability problem such as a noise, vibration or pulling to the right or left, dont accept the car back until you ride in the car with the technician or service advisor and confirm that the problem has been remedied. I also recommend that you drive the car with the service advisor to demonstrate the problem when you bring it in. Experiencing what you experience always communicates your problem more accurately than listening to your description of the problem. 5. Ask for a written estimate of the total cost of repairs and maintenance. Florida law requires that the dealer give you a written estimate. By law, they may not exceed this by more than 10 percent. 6. Make an appointment ahead of time. You should insist on making an appointment and you should try to make that appointment at a time when the dealers service department will be least busytypically the middle of the afternoon on weekdays or Saturday and Sunday. Avoid the 7:30-8 morning rush. Most service departments will let you schedule your appointment online on their website. Take advantage of this. Be careful if they are reluctant or unwilling to make an appointment for you. Often when you call a service department, they will tell you to bring the car in anytime or come right over. Service advisors will tell you this because they are either too busy or too lazy to take the time to make a proper appointment. When they tell you this, tell them that your time is very valuable and that you insist on an appointment at a time when they can get you in and out quickly. Always write down the name of the person who gave you the appointment. 7. Shop and compare high cost repair prices. Most service departments are competitive on maintenance items like oil changes, wheel alignments and tire rotations. However, the costs of major repairs can vary considerably. If you are looking at an air-conditioner, transmission, or engine repair that can cost several thousands of dollars, get bids from more than one service department. Often just suggesting that you will do this will keep the cost down from the dealership you prefer. 8. Introduce yourself to the service manager. This falls along the same philosophy as developing a good personal relationship with your service advisor. It cant hurt to know the boss. If you are on first-name basis with the service manager, it just might earn you a slightly higher level of treatment from those who work for him.

After all, with a $235K base price, the Bentley Bentayga costs as much as seven Ford Explorers with enough left over to buy a Mitsubishi Mirage. But when a vehicle is the fastest SUV on the market, and also the most luxurious, its not about being practical. Its about being the best. The design is unconventional. Its not ugly, and its absolutely memorable. In many ways it feels like abstract art. After all, many crossovers and SUVs employ classically attractive designs that are pleasing to the eye like a nice landscape painting that will complement any room. But the Bentayga is a collection of many shapes and sizes with a less cohesive theme. In fact, the only unifying element seems to be premium packaging. It permeates in everything from the headlight detail to the fit of the lower body chrome. It creates a vehicle that always stands out in a crowd. And thats what someone will want when spending as much on a vehicle as a comfortable house. In fact, stepping inside the Bentayga feels just like entering a palatial home. This is a world of wood, leather, wool and polished metals. Plastic feels like an endangered species. Its only found on heavy trafficked items like control buttons that would feel odd or wear quickly if they were anything else. This level of detail is part of why the Bentayga can start to justify its price tag. Two-tone leathers feature the contrasting colors stitching (optional) to make sure its a fully coordinated package. The speaker covers and map lights feel like jewelry. There are even special edition clocks by Breitling. This option will easily push the price tag over the quarter-million mark, but that seems like an extra badge of honor for owners. Its hard to choose a preferred seat because all of them feature the highest quality cow hide with Bentleys signature diamond pattern stitched into every armchair. The driver is in command of the full electronic package that handles everything from the touchscreen infotainment to adjusting the ride height. But the Bentayga was clearly built with the idea that the owner might never sit up front. If the rear bucket seat package is chosen, it can be electronically adjusted more ways than many other cars drivers chair. Theres about as much leg room as a Range Rover. Plus, the atmosphere back there is independently adjustable through its own wireless touchscreen interface. All this opulence caries a lot of weight, and there needs to be an engine that can handle it all. So, while most vehicles would easily be sufficient with 12 cylinders displacing six liters, Bentley also adds two turbochargers. It creates 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Those two figures combine to make the Bentayga feel Ferrari-like fast while also confident in carrying its own weight. Another big part of the luxury equation is the eight-speed transmission. Its operation feels seamless so that some shifts arent even felt exactly whats expected from a vehicle of this caliber. While the Bentayga is a tall crossover/SUV, the suspension employs all the adjustable heights and damper setting to make sure it feels like a sedan on the road. This will undoubtedly appeal to some people who are tired of wrinkling their silk pants as they kneel in and out of lower-riding limousines. But the other side of all these suspension adjustments can create a highriding vehicle with locking differentials on the standard all-wheel drive system. It suggests that with meaty tires and a fearless owner, this can be a true offroad SUV. Practicality is not the aim of the Bentley Bentayga. If speed and luxury were the only elements on a wish list, then the Audi Q7 or the Porsche Cayenne could suffice. Both vehicles share some DNA with the Bentley, and both could be in the same garage for less than the price of one Bentayga. But theres a mystique about having a flying B lead the way. A proper Bentley doesnt announce its opulence from the tailpipes. But the right one leaves a lasting impression on everyone from those who see it on the streets, to those lucky few who sit behind the wheel. And the Bentayga nails it. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A19 Being proactive with kids in times of tragedyStacey woke with a start and looked at her alarm: 3 a.m. Muffled noises were coming from the room of her 14-year-old son, Jared. Was Jared having nightmares again? Was he poring the internet for more details about the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas? Stacey knocked on Jareds door and immediately saw the look on her sons face. Mom, why do these things happen? Have you seen the stories about the victims? What worried Stacey was that her previously out-going, good-natured son had become more irritable and reclusive. He buried himself in his technology and had become consumed with the televised details of the horrific recent tragedies. Stacey didnt know how to respond anymore. Jared had been horrified to watch the reports of the devastation caused by the recent hurricanes and the lightning speed of wild fires that decimated so much of Northern California. He asked Stacey daily whether she believed the United States and Korea would go to war, and whether a nuclear bomb could reach the United States. Truth be told, Stacey hadnt been feeling very solid herself. Lately, shed begun to dread turning on her computer or the television, bracing herself for more devastating news. Stacey was not sure how to best intervene with Jared. Should she limit his viewing? How much should she discuss? Was there any way she could reassure him, when she herself was feeling overwhelmed? Stacey was further ashamed that she had trouble keeping her own anxieties in check and that she might be adding to Jareds apprehensions. For many of us, life today can seem shaky and not very secure. Most of us are at a loss to comprehend the senseless tragedies and natural disasters that sadly seem to have become an almost daily occurrence each more horrific than the one before. The cumulative effect of recent events has taken a jarring toll on our emotions and is chipping away at our sense of well-being. Grief is hard enough for adults to process. Parents and grandparents have an especially daunting undertaking we are faced with, not only processing our own overwhelming feelings, but must at the same time be able to harness our resources to support our children at a time they may be frightened and confused. If only there were a way that we could protect our children from the horror of a tragedy, or the heartbreak of a loss.When an event happens that will get wide press attention, our first inclination might be to pray our children havent heard the news. While this might be tempting, its safer to assume that they ultimately WILL hear about the tragedy from classmates or online. Even though it may seem that some children are too young to comprehend whats going on, we should assume they sense that something frightening has happened.We can take our cues from our children to learn what they already know and to gauge how much information they are able to absorb at that time. We must be developmentally appropriate, mindful of what young people are able to understand at each age level. Its OK to tell them that we dont know all the facts or dont have answers, but we must show patience if our children return to the discussion with more questions and/or fears. Importantly, our children will be observing us to see how we process the news. Anxiety and fear can be contagious. It will be valuable if we can model calm and reasonableness, as this can be an important source of comfort and reassurance.We certainly can talk to our children about how sad we are, and let them know that its challenging for us, as well, to work through the upset. However, it would be tremendously reassuring for them to see that we are still emotionally available to support them. Its important that we maintain routines and resume as many regular activities (i.e.: mealtimes, bedtimes) as we can. The structure and continuity can be very reassuring at a vulnerable time. Adolescence is a time where young people may be experiencing highs and lows because of hormonal levels in their bodies. Severe upsets can make these shifts appear more volatile. We need to understand that our teenagers may react in confusing ways. It helps if we restrain from an overly emotional reaction in response. Better to let them know were aware of the pressures they may be under, but count on them to be appropriate and responsible. To open the door, it often helps with teens to make statements generalizing how people react in situations, without implying we assume it applies to them. This lets them know we are open to tough conversations and gives them the opportunity to save face. When a teenager like Jared, in the fictionalized vignette above, shows excessive signs of anxiety, personality changes or difficulty in maintaining his ability to function, it might be time to approach a mental health professional for further evaluation or support. Sometimes, when tragic events have occurred, taking proactive steps can have a therapeutic effect perhaps memorializing victims with vigils, candles, or sharing stories that honor those we have lost. Actions like these can help young people not only feel a sense of mastery and pride, but in the process may help build their resilience and sensitivity to the plight of those less fortunate. Returning to normalcy after witnessing a tragedy can be an arduous process even for those not directly in harms way. If we are overly burdened by our own grief, it will be important that we address our feelings and reach out for our own support so our children do not face an inappropriate impact. It may be helpful to call upon a trusted family member or friend to assist us, or take advantage of the many professional services and support groups offered in our communities.

But a burst of energy is not always a good thing. Intermittent bursts of energy in the brain can lead to seizures and affect your consciousness, bodily movements or sensations for a short period of time. Repeated seizures could be a sign of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain that can cause temporary confusion, staring spells, uncontrollable jerking motions of the arms and legs, and unconsciousness. About half of epilepsy cases occur for no known reason. However, it can be caused by genetic factors, head trauma, certain medical disorders like a stroke, dementia, prenatal injury and developmental disorders such as autism or Down syndrome. People at increased risk for epilepsy are men, young children, adults over the age of 65, those with a family history of the disorder, anyone who has had a stroke or brain infection, and those who experienced high fevers in childhood. There are two main types of seizures with subcategories. Focal or partial seizures originate in one part of the brain. Simple focal seizures do not cause loss of consciousness, but may affect sensory perceptions and result in involuntary jerking of part of the body. Complex focal seizures change consciousness or awareness, and may result in non-purposeful movements, such as walking in circles or staring. Generalized seizures appear to involve the whole brain. They include: Absence seizures, also called petit mal, which cause subtle body movements and brief loss of awareness; Tonic seizures that result in muscles stiffening; Clonic seizures associated with recurring, twitching muscle contractions; Myoclonic seizures that appear as sudden, jerking movements in the arms and legs Atonic seizures that cause loss of normal muscle tone; Tonic-clonic seizures, also called grand mal, which are intense episodes of body stiffening, shaking, loss of consciousness and occasional loss of bladder control or tongue biting. Epilepsy can be diagnosed following blood tests as well as neurological and behavior examinations. Additional medical tests may be necessary, such as an electroencephalogram to check the electrical activity in the brain, or computerized tomography or magnetic resonance imaging to look for structural abnormalities like tumors, bleeding or cysts. Treatment usually begins with medication to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures. Surgery may be recommended if medicines are not effective. When tests show that seizures originate in a well-defined area that doesnt interfere with vital functions, then that part of the brain may be surgically removed. If the affected part of the brain cannot be removed, doctors can make a series of small cuts to prevent seizures from spreading. Some people may be candidates for vagus nerve stimulation, which involves implanting a device to deliver electrical pulses to the brain. If you or a loved one is suffering from epilepsy or seizures, our new epilepsy program is designed to help you regain control of your life. In addition to offering diagnostics and electroencephalograms (EEGs), we are the first in Palm Beach County to have a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) for patients in need of further assessment. The unit employs skilled technologists and a core nursing staff committed to providing the best possible inpatient monitoring experience. Our EMU is equipped with Long-Term Video Monitoring, a specialized form of an EEG in which the patient is continuously monitored on video while brainwave activity is recorded. It is designed to allow physicians to: Identify the onset triggers for seizures Differentiate epileptic events from psychogenic seizures Establish the specific type of epilepsy The video captured with this testing can be used to detect epileptic activity not detectable in routine EEGs and can be critical for the diagnosis of epilepsy.

Ballet plans special show at Kravis Center BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comColleen Smith, the artistic director at Ballet Palm Beach, will debut a new interpretation of The Nutcracker this year.

But that didnt stop my mother and grandmother from loading my sister and me into the back of the blue and white 1968 Oldsmobile and heading north to Indiana, from where theyd moved to Florida 15 years before. My mother had to deal with the pain of leaving my 2-year-old brother behind with a dear family friend hed cried the night before when she left him, but he settled into a routine the next day and didnt want to come back home, as I recall. The Arab oil embargo was in full force and gas prices were creeping upward my mother fretted that it was 32 cents a gallon some places, which seems like nothing now, but was a lot when filling the tank of that Delta 88, which probably topped out at 15 miles per gallon as it cruised up and down the highway in yachtlike splendor. We sailed through Florida and Georgia and visited Cherokee, N.C., in those pre-interstate days. We rolled into the bluegrass hills of Kentucky I remember showing my sister the Abraham Lincoln birthplace cabin before pulling up at our great-grandmothers little house east of downtown Indianapolis. As I recall, my sister stayed with Grandma and her mother, whom we called Grandma Gladys and who was recovering from foot surgery. I was 10 and old enough to venture out to some of the markets and flea markets with my mother. It was while shopping that she bought a Miller slag-glass lamp and two vintage Fenton cranberry hobnail glass lamps. That Miller lamp was Tiffany-like in its splendor to my 10-year-old eyes. The metal frame had a landscape motif from which the pinks and blues and greens shone in all their stained-glass glory. I was enthralled with the notion that wed have something like that in OUR house never mind that it probably had sold new in 1910 at Sears, Roebuck & Co. or a similar retailer that was as far from Tiffany and New Yorks Fifth Avenue as you could get. That was early in my mothers passion for collecting, and she moved on to better things. More than 30 years ago, she gave the lamp to me. That seems like an eternity ago, but I can promise you this: With one pull of Bought: Smiley Wiley Breast Cancer Foundation Thrift Store, 505 State Road A1A, Jupiter; 561-632-8631 or www.smileywiley. org Paid: Priced at $90; everything was 50 percent off in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I paid $45. The Skinny: This thrift store, which supports a charity that helps breast cancer patients pay their deductibles for treatment, had received a pair of these lamps. But one of the lamps had faulty wiring, so the base was discarded. Thats too bad, because a pair of lamps this age is hard to find. My friend Jim Antone, whos a Jacksonville antiques dealer and appraiser, says the lamps look like those made by Salem Bros. in the first quarter of the 20th century the sockets bear a patent date of July 6, 1909. Regardless of who made the lamp and its mate, the glass is beautiful, with pearly whites and vivid pinks and oranges. Its nice that the lamp is complete, including its finial. I bought the second shade. Now I need to find another base. By now, you know me: I always love a challenge.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 B3 Symphonic Band to offer panoply of melodies BY STEVEN J. SMITHssmith@ oridaweekly.comOnce again, its time to face the music as the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches opens its 57th season on Oct. 21 at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens. The program, titled Specially For You, will then enjoy a repeat performance at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth on Oct. 28. Both shows get underway at 7:30 p.m. The concerts will highlight the bands most daring line up yet, according to Music Director Mark Humphreys. They are either very exciting and challenging new works or interesting hallmark pieces in the concert band and orchestral realm, Mr. Humphreys said. We have a live and learned audience that comprises a unique cross-section of the community. So we make musical selections that are entertaining, educational and exciting for them. Mr. Humphreys said the program will feature A Gershwin Fantasy, containing many of the composers most famous popular compositions, including Strike up the Band, Summertime, Lady Be Good, Fascinating Rhythm, It Aint Necessarily So, Rhapsody in Blue and I Got Rhythm, performed by saxophone soloist and associate conductor Kyle Mechmet. Kyle is a master-level saxophonist, recently out of Iowa State University, he said. Hes really one of the finer players in the country. He plays with a clear, thrilling sound and perfect intonation that you dont normally hear. Seven leading Gershwin themes squeezed together. A rollicking new cowboy piece called The Twelve Gallon Hat, by Emmy and Academy Award-winning composer Julie Giroux, also is on the bill. Julie writes a very visual score, Mr. Humphreys said. She employs these very large and western open chords that you hear in that type of music. Its very entertaining and very obvious writing, but at the same time quite difficult to play, evoking Hollywood and Aaron Copland dynamic, fast, aggressive, fun. This piece was actually a dedication to a band director who has an outgoing, flamboyant personality as large as a twelve gallon hat. Also featured will be The Second Suite in F for Military Band (Op. 28, No. 2), Gustav Holsts second and last suite for a concert band, which Mr. Humphreys said is composed of four movements based on English folk songs: March, Song Without Words, Song of the Blacksmith and Fantasia from The Dargason. Thats a suite of British-esque themes, he said. Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld, by Jacques Offenbach and arranged by Lawrence Odom, is an adaptation of the French comic operetta. Loosely based on Greek mythology, it contains the risqu can-can melody that is famous outside classical circles and is said to have shocked audience members at its premiere. Additional concert selections include Barnum and Baileys Favorite, by Karl L. King, and Pageant, by Vincent Persichetti. And whats a band concert without a march? Mr. Humphreys said. Our program includes two a Sousa favorite, Under the Double Eagle, which was composed by March King J.F. Wagner and British Folk Song March, by Hiroki Takahashi. David Hinds, vice president of the Symphonic Band, added the group is a nonprofit community band comprised of volunteer musicians from all over the community. Founded by a group of Palm Beach High School band alumni in 1961, its mission is to give audiences memorable musical experiences at affordable prices, to challenge its members to grow and develop musically and to award scholarships and grants to area youth for their continued educational and cultural growth. Were one of the oldest continuously operating organizations in the state of Florida, he said. And for $20 a ticket, the audience is getting a tremendous bargain. Were proud of that and for the fact that our profits go to scholarships for kids that cant afford summer music camps, colleges and musical instruments that we collect, purchase and give away to Title I schools, which are the poorest schools in Palm Beach County. We give away hundreds of these a year. So the money we bring in is going to a very worthy cause. Its a superb organization and in fact it still has some of its original charter members from the s, Mr. Humphreys added. A wonderful, music-playing group with a dedicated leadership. Although some are older, they are still very youthful in their thinking and planning. As a consequence, we have a very devoted audience at our two professional theaters at the Eissey and the Duncan. So we wanted to do something really special for them. We want them to walk away with a sense of extreme satisfaction for the generous donation theyve made to help the students of Palm Beach County.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYtimes to document the effect of melting glaciers on global sea level rise. On view at the Norton Museum of Art through Jan. 7, the works illustrate what Mr. Guariglia the first artist to join a NASA climate science missionsaw during a 2015 survey mission. Horrific beauty or beautiful horror? Its complicated. His photographs resemble abstract expressionist paintings while others appear to belong in a minimalists home. Its hard to find them unattractive even when knowing what they represent. A land battered by global warming, machinery, agriculture and mining exhibits its monumental scars. Holes, dents and cracks are captured in the aerial photographs grouped into three sections: Agriculture and Mining, Glaciers and Sea Ice. They hang neatly in a sanitized white space that seems to keep emotions in check while secretly hoping for outrage. From a distance, the Landscape Studies series inspired by the artists travels to Asia appear as cosmic pictures. They are snapshots of a distant galaxy putting up a display of flares, death stars and disfigured beasts or perhaps they are shattered memories, pieces from a broken mirror desperately trying to become one again. Up close, one begins to appreciate the process the New Jersey-native is known for. It involves multiple coats of gesso, 22-karat gold leaf and other precious-metal leaf as well as an industrial-sized printer (his secret weapon) customized to apply acrylics instead of ink. The twist here is that Mr. Guariglia incorporates virtually indestructible materials, such as polystyrene, knowing they will far outlive his subjects and, in some cases, contribute to the very ecological crisis he is documenting. One could say this is an artist who leads by example, confronts his own dilemma and irony before inviting us to follow. That cleansing feeling brought by the massive white panels in the Glaciers section does not let us walk out pure and clean of our sins without confronting us first. This is the most painful part. KULUSUK I features fragments of ice bubbling up as if ready to peel off the surface while the gigantic piece titled AKUNAAAQ I features a distinctively mechanic pattern unlikely to have been caused by animals or a natural process. QAANAAQ I, a striking four-panel piece recently acquired by the Norton, stands out for its lines and shadows. Its subject emerges solid, stronger than adjacent pieces showing retreating glaciers with the consistency of powdered milk. The swollen surfaces of QAANAAQ I appear pregnant with hope, but its just keeping up appearances. Its just a matter of time before it, too, dies a slow death. With rising temperatures, glaciers like this one are dropping tons of ice into the ocean faster than ever. The next five years will see the adventurous, experimental artist be part of the Oceans Melting Greenland Initiative, which will continue to study how glaciers react to warm, salty Atlantic Water. Can the mistreatment, contamination and abuse of the environment ever be beautiful? Certainly not. But can it be portrayed beautifully? Yes. The smaller works in the Sea Ice portion of Earth Works features dark landscapes illuminated by distant, tiny white lights resembling a stream of magic dust as if in a fairy tale. In reality, these glowing constellations stand for sea ice, the thin remains of dying glaciers, as seen from the troposphere and stratosphere. It feels wrong to find them appealing. Imagine smiling for a photo taken next to a beautiful monument born from a tragedy. But it cant be helped. That is the artists mission after all. To convert research, studies and scientific findings into compelling renditions that will stay with us longer than charts and move us in ways statistics cannot. At a time that sees the country stock in limbo when not walking away from the conversation entirely over whether or not humans really are changing Planet Earth, Earth Works gives us a push in the right decision. Sometimes its not just history that needs a push. PLANETFrom page 1 Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene>> When: Through Jan. 7 >> Where: Norton Museum of Art, 1451 S.

The Little Foxes. Well, Can you tell me what it was about? Well, no, but it was really good. Wasnt it about a family? Well, yes And in the South? Well, yes. Indeed, several of the cast members were tangentially aware of the title, but had not read it, including its star, Kathy McCafferty, who portrays the central character, Regina Hubbard Giddens. But, Ms. McCafferty said, I knew of the play and I read it before the audition. As soon as I read it, I could see this woman is being held back by the restrictions of her time, by her family dynamic, and by not having the means of having a say in her own life. If you dont have money, you dont have choices and a woman at that time is dependent for every single thing for a man to say yes or no to, to get a new dress, to take a trip, in her case, to make an investment. Hellman created a supremely intelligent and rapaciously ambitious woman in Regina, trapped in a society in which her sex blocks her from any direct influence in the burgeoning family business run by her two wealthy brothers. But when they want a loan from her strained finances (actually from her weak-willed husband, who controls her inherited cash) for a crucial expansion, she finally has a chip to play in a high-stakes, no-rules battle for power. While Dramaworks has no plans to alter the emphasis, the plays Regina is less the independent force of nature than Bette Davis cinematic interpretation was just as venal, but less powerful. Mr. Lewis, who has directed other classics for Dramaworks, likened this family dysfunction to the timeless discord in King Lear and Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf. But he saw even more modern resonances in the greed-trumping-principles ethos. When I reread the play, youre always looking for that one or two (lines that represent) the whole play. Hellman gives them to Addie the servant. (Well, there are people who eat the Earth and eat all the people on it. . Then there are people who stand around and watch them eat it.) Its very important that we do not become those who eat or simply passively watch. What is my responsibility, wherein lies my action to humankind, to nature, to the family? And that really caught me because we seem to be becoming more isolated and more divided. And how do we begin to the conversation to bridge the gap? But Ms. McCafferty, who played the flinty heroine in Dramaworks Outside Mullingar, has to come at it another way: While Regina does despicable things, the actress cannot play her as a villain. She has no independent means. She says (to her husband) All my life Ive had to make force you to make something of yourself. When I met you, you were a small town bank clerk, This man has the privilege and opportunity to better himself and he doesnt take it and thats maddening to her. Because if she was in that position, shed be running the town. She knows she would. She knows she could. But she is not allowed to. If she was born 100 years later, she would be a CEO or in politics. She is chastised by her brothers; she is told to shut up and smile by her brothers. One way Regina controls her husband is be acquiescing to sex she doesnt want. Ms. McCaffertys voice grows in passion. Shes a great actress. She has to assess what the man wants. And that costs her. She has to suck it up to have to go against your nature, to soften yourself and placate and bend and not say what you want to say. Day after day. Women might not relate to what this woman does, but they will understand why. The original Broadway productions Regina was Tallulah Bankhead, who was lauded for her performance, followed in other revivals by Anne Bancroft, Stockard Channing and last season by Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon alternating as Regina and the weak sister-in-law Birdie. Local veteran theatergoers may recall the 1981 edition marking Elizabeth Taylors Broadway debut, which actually premiered at the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale because the production was bankrolled by South Florida producer Zev Buffman. The show is a gift for setting and lighting designers, but especially for Dramaworks resident Carbonell-winning costume designer Brian OKeefe who gets to garb 10 actors in multiple outfits that reflects their status, moods and character evolution. Its a character-driven play and thats always a lot more fun, to create personal wardrobes for individuals and to try to inform the audience who they are, where they are, where theyre going, where theyve been, Mr. OKeefe said. For instance, Reginas final outfit is a shade of green that projects greed, money, envy, but also given the climax of the play its also the color of life and beginnings and growth. I want this costume to convey all of that. In addition, the style of it is based on a sort of fusion of male and female fashion because she is really acting like a man in a mans world being a woman of this time. Mr. OKeefe designed the show about 20 years ago for the Seaside Music Theatre starring Barbara Bradshaw and Gordon McConnell. But that time, he had a staff of six to eight people; this round its him, a full-time assistant and two part-time people. Other cast members include Dramaworks regulars Dennis Creaghan (who appeared in the Elizabeth Taylor London tour) as one of the scheming older brothers, Rob Donohoe as Reginas gentle husband, Caitlin Cohn (the precocious girl in last seasons Arcadia), as their pivotal daughter Alexandra and Avery Sommers as Addie. Plus James Andreassi, Denise Cormier, Taylor Anthony Miller and Frank Converse. The cast has been trying to create in a couple of weeks the kind of familial familiarity that Hellmans cadre built over decades. If it works, Ms. McCaffertys goal is to take the audience on a journey in which these characters do some highly questionable things, but they can love us or hate us or be horrified by us, but that they come to a place of understanding of how we come to these points of our lives, to these choices because of certain limitations or why we have come to the breaking point. She paused, then Hopefully there will be a moment or two of recognition in themselves. That, to me is the most compelling theater when we see people doing things we have said I will never ever do, but you have a moment of recognition that surprises you. A door cracks open on something that you dont want to relate to, but somehow find you are.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Tacos The Place: Darbster, 8020 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-586-2622 or www.darbster.com. The Price: $13.50 The Details: Its nice when something that tastes good also is good for you. And thats how the menu works at Darbster. The vegan restaurant, situated on the spillway that divides West Palm Beach and Lake Worth, offers a range of living, or raw, foods and meat substitutes. I opted for tacos this visit, and enjoyed the filling of toasted cumin tempeh, tomato jalapeo, romaine, red onion, avocado and dairy-free cheddar. It was accompanied by guacamole and a tangy pico de gallo, plus earthy black beans with cilantro rice that did not overdo it with the cilantro. Sc ott Simmons Bruc e Lieberman has worked in restaurants all over the country over the past 34 years, but his best job his favorite job is the one he has now as executive chef of The Butcher Shop Beer Garden & Grill in West Palm Beach. The Butcher Shop was founded by father and son duo Igor and Fred Niznik after they bought an old-fashioned butcher shop called Charlies. The restaurant opened in April. We have a full-service butcher, said Chef Lieberman, who worked previously at Dorrians Red Hand in West Palm Beach. He said it was his grandmother, a very good cook, who inspired him to become a chef. I started working as a busboy when I was 14 and a week later I was manning the salad station, he said. He enjoyed the restaurant environment. I determined early on that this was the career path that I needed to be on, he said. I love the tension and controlled chaos that shaped my cooking and management styles. Those who come into The Butcher Shop for the first time will want to try the bacon gorgonzola burger or the BBQ Butcher sandwich. Both are delicious, he insists. One of his favorite dishes to cook is cassoulet, slow-cooked French casserole with meat, pork skin and white beans. Cassoulet is named after its traditional cooking vessel, the cassole, a deep, round, earthenware pot with slanting sides. Although known for beef, the Butcher Shop also offers several vegetarian dishes. A family man, Chef Lieberman says his wife, Megan, does most of the cooking at home, although he frequently grills. I have four children Andie, 23, Bernard, 4, Scarlett, 2, and Isla, 6 months, he said. We enjoy going to the beach and doing arts and crafts projects. How does he stay fit? Running after three little kids and a 75-pound German shepherd keeps me in shape, Chef Lieberman said. While he loves being a chef, he dreams of having his own business one day. I have always wanted to own a vintage kitchen and furnishing store, he says. Bruce Lieberman Age: 49 Original hometown: Lawrence, N.Y.

2 healthy living OCTOBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Advanced smile design techniques in Palm Beach GardensYou may have cavities, older dental work, or even in need of major dental treatment, but with advanced dentistry, theres always a solution that can meet your needs. There are many wonders that a highly trained cosmetic and restorative dentist can offer patients that may surprise you. Major issues with dental health can be effectively treated, and even the most serious dental problems can be dealt with. In order to achieve such great results, however, its often necessary for a dentist to have extensive experience and training in both dental reconstruction and cosmetics. This is the world of advanced smile design, and wed like to take a few minutes to look into it right now.What does smile design refer to?Smile design refers to the ability for a dentist to create a smile that not only looks attractive, but suits the patients facial features for an overall healthy and natural appearance. Simultaneously, we can achieve excellent dental health and function, giving patients the ability to eat whatever theyd like and smile with confidence.Advanced digital technologySmile design today involves the use of extensive digital photography of a patients face, teeth and existing smile so that the doctor can custom design a new smile for each individual. Teeth can be lengthened, straightened, brightened, and properly aligned so the final result is a beautiful healthy smile that becomes an expression of the true self. Our patients are welcome to look through a number of before and after photos of actual patients weve treated, states Dr. Ajmo. Once they see what weve done for so many others, they quickly realize we can the same for them too.PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry also uses 3D CT Technology for all dental implant treatment. 3D Technology is much more accurate than traditional black and white x-rays, allowing Dr. Ajmo to precisely place dental implants in the proper location in your jaws.Customized smile makeover treatmentYour smile makeover may include a number of treatment options depending on your personal needs and desires. It may involve replacing older crowns with new cosmetic metal free crowns which look so much more natural and will usually last longer. We could also enhance chipped, worn or dark teeth with cosmetic porcelain veneers for a brighter more youthful appearance. In some cases we may makeover the upper teeth and simply bleach the lower teeth and achieve outstanding results.Customized full mouth reconstruction treatmentFull mouth reconstructions involve replacing missing teeth with dental implants and replacing older dental work with new metal free state-of-the-art porcelains. Of course there is always an emphasis on the overall health and wellness of the mouth, but these treatments are always combined with cosmetic enhancements to achieve overall long term dental health and esthetics. A full mouth reconstruction may involve dental implants, crowns, bridgework or a number of necessary treatment modalities. Either way, the overall goal involves feeling healthy, looking your best, being able to eat meals properly and giving patients the ability to live life to the fullest.What to expect from a dental restorative makeoverWhether you undergo a smile makeover or a full mouth reconstruction, you can expect great results and improved dental wellness. And thanks to advanced dentistry, you can usually have all necessary treatments performed in the same office with the mutual understanding that your mouth will be healthy and your smile will look great. With Advanced Dentistry, patients can experience optimum dental care to support overall health and well-being.Learn more about advanced dental careIf you would like to learn more about smile design and your many options out there for cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry or dental implant treatment, contact our Palm Beach Gardens office today.

Help available for treating hemorrhoidsMillions of people worldwide suffer from hemorrhoids enlarged, bulging blood vessels in and about the anus and lower rectum. There are two types of hemorrhoids internal and external. External (outside) hemorrhoids develop near the anus and are covered by sensitive skin. If a blood clot develops in one of them, a painful swelling may occur. It bleeds only if it ruptures. Internal (inside) hemorrhoids develop within the anus beneath the lining. Painless bleeding and protrusion during bowel movements are the most common symptoms. However, an internal hemorrhoid may cause severe pain if it protrudes from the anal canal and cannot be pushed back in. The exact cause of hemorrhoids is unknown. Our upright posture forces a great deal of pressure on the rectal veins, causing them to bulge. Contributing factors include aging, constipation, diarrhea, pregnancy, heredity, straining due to poor bowel function, overuse of laxatives, and spending long periods of time on the toilet. The tissues supporting the veins stretch and dilate; their walls become thin and bleed. As the stretching and pressure continue, the weakened veins protrude. Symptoms include bleeding, protrusion, anal itching, pain and sensitive lumps. There is no relationship between hemorrhoids and cancer. However, the symptoms of hemorrhoids, particularly bleeding, are similar to those of colorectal cancer. Therefore, it is imperative that all symptoms be investigated by a physician. Mild symptoms can be relieved by increasing fiber in the diet, avoiding excessive straining, taking warm baths and using anesthetic creams. More severe symptoms of internal hemorrhoids may be treated by rubber band ligation, which involves placing a small rubber band over the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply. Several days later, the hemorrhoid and band fall off. The wound heals within two weeks. The newest treatment, HET bipolar systems (Hetsystems.com), involves applying high-energy compression to internal hemorrhoids under sedation. It can be done in combination with colonoscopy, and multiple hemorrhoids can be treated in one procedure. External hemorrhoids sometimes become thrombosed develop a clot. They present as a painful perianal lump. Evacuation of the clot, performed under local anesthesia with a small incision, may bring immediate relief. Hemorrhoidectomy, surgical excision, is the best method of permanently removing hemorrhoids. It is necessary: 1) if clots repeatedly form in external hemorrhoids; 2) protruding hemorrhoids cant be reduced; or 3) there is persistent bleeding, especially when ligation fails. Surgery is done under anesthesia and is usually an outpatient procedure. If you are a hemorrhoid sufferer, todays treatment options offer an excellent chance of relief. Ronald S.

4 healthy living OCTOBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHalloween safety tips PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTERHave your children decided what costume theyll be wearing this Halloween? Maybe theyll dress up as the latest superhero, a scary ghost or a fairytale princess? Many children look forward to this time of year for the chance to dress as their favorite character and to get plenty of free goodies. If you plan on taking your family trick or treating, here are some tips to help keep you safe:Choosing a Costume Make sure your childs outfit allows for an adequate line of vision. Masks and hoods can make it hard to see, so non-toxic face paints may be a better choice. Choose something that reflects light. Parents can add reflective tape to costumes and treat bags so that children are visible to drivers. Consider carrying a flashlight to light the way. You may even find one to match your kids costume!Fun with Friends Younger children should always have a responsible adult or older teenager with them while they trick or treat. Take some friends along. A group of three or more can be much safer than one single person.Plan Ahead Plan your route and decide what time your family should be home. Only visit the houses of people you know and where an outside light is on. If the light is off, they are probably away from home or not giving out candy. Dont go inside a house to accept candy.Safety First Make sure you keep a safe distance from lit candles especially in a jack olantern. Always watch out for traffic, stay on the sidewalks and cross only at intersections. Dont cross or hide between parked cars and remember to look both ways before crossing the street. Dont cut across alleys or yards. You should check all candy collected before your child starts eating it. Throw away any open packages or homemade treats. Avoid giving young children small or hard candies that pose a choking hazard.Tips for Parents Children often want to help carve pumpkins, but little fingers and sharp objects dont mix. Instead, let your child draw the face on the pumpkin while you handle the carving. They may also enjoy cleaning out the pumpkin and saving the seeds to bake for a snack. Make sure your children understand the rules of Halloween safety. Develop a game plan and agree on the rules ahead of time. If older children are going out without an adult, make sure they understand the difference between vandalism and tricks. If your child is carrying props, like a sword or wand, check to see that the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury. If youd rather not take your family door-to-door trick or treating, look into alternatives such as going to a mall or community event. You may also want to host a special Halloween party for your children and their friends. Research ways to help make your home safe for trick or treaters. There are special lights that mimic a candle for jack olanterns, but if you do use a traditional candle, keep the pumpkin on a sturdy surface away from where children are likely to stand. Dont leave a burning candle unattended.We Heal the Princesses, the Superheroes, the Pirates and More!The team of pediatric specialists at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center would like to wish every a safe and happy Halloween!

Area hospitals name DAISY Award winnersThe Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center named NICU nurse Eileen Penque as its newest DAISY Award winner. She was honored for her work ethic and for always being a team player in her department. Ms. Penque is described as humble and is admired for continuously going beyond the call of duty, all while maintaining a smile on her face. Her colleagues also commended her for tireless behind the scenes efforts in achieving the best care possible for the hospitals tiniest patients. St. Marys Medical Center recently presented the DAISY Award to ICU nurse Antonio Sanchez-Perez. In addition to being considered a mentor to new nurses and a role model for his entire unit, his coworkers say he provides support and a sense of tranquility in the most stressful situations. The DAISY Award was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) in 1999. His family was so touched by the care he received from the nursing staff in his final days that they decided to create a program that honors nursings unique contribution to patients.

6 healthy living OCTOBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNonsurgical facelift and skin tightening/lifting procedure with PDO threadsAging becomes more rapid and visible when we reach our mid-30s. When we age, the first signs that appear include thinner, loose skin that hang from the face. The skin becomes loose and sagging because of the loss of collagen and elastin fibers as we grow older. The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, neck, jawline, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs, abdomen, breasts, buttocks, hips, knees, elbows, chin, and lips with no downtime. Thread Lift is one the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls and the neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped and olderlooking face. Traditionally, most people would look into plastic surgery to get a facelift as there werent very effective noninvasive treatments to lift the loose skin. However, now there is an effective nonsurgical option that can lift and contour and suspend the sagging tissues on the face, neck and the body, especially for those that need only minimal to moderate rejuvenation or for those that do not wish to undergo surgical intervention. PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are surgical sutures that are used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body. Your skin will fully absorb the thread within four to six months without leaving any scar tissue. While the sutures are underneath the skin, however, your skin gently reacts to the skin creating a selective inflammatory response to produce collagen to create a longer-lasting result. A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment, but the results will actually improve in the following days and weeks as collagen stimulation begins. The best part of this entire treatment is that the body naturally absorbs the threads, lasting in 12 to 24 months of results. The thread lift procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour (depending on treatment area/size). Anesthetic cream is applied to treatment area followed by an insertion of safe and dissolvable threads under the skin. After the procedure, mild swelling for a few days is common. Because there are no cuts or incision required, there is no scarring. We look to manage treatment discomfort as much as possible and use special creams that dramatically reduce the pain of injections. In addition we use anesthetics injected locally. Most patients dont consider it to be a painful treatment however we do advise patients that it may be uncomfortable. PDO Thread Therapy can be used alone or can be combined with other treatments to deliver optimal results eg: Botox, fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, PRP and micro-needling.

Scripps Florida scientists unveil roadmap to aid osteoporosis treatment SCRIPPS RESEARCH INSTITUTEUsing advanced mass spectrometry technology, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have developed a molecular model that may provide a new framework for improving the design of osteoporosis treatments. Because of our aging population, these kinds of therapeutics are in great demand, said study leader Patrick R. Griffin, co-chair of the TSRI Department of Molecular Medicine. The research was published in the journal Nature Communications. Using a technology known as HDX, which the Griffin lab has propelled into mainstream protein analysis, the scientists delivered the first dynamic snapshots of a prime target for osteoporosis treatments: a receptor that regulates calcium levels to maintain healthy bones. The use of current drugs that target this receptor called vitamin D receptor agonistsis limited because use can result in hypercalcemia, a condition that can weaken bones and even cause kidney stones, due to too much calcium in the bloodstream. To address this problem, scientists need a clearer picture of the structure of the vitamin D receptor. The vitamin D receptor complex regulates bone mineralization by controlling a gene known as BGLAP that is the target of 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25D3), the active hormonal version of vitamin D. Unfortunately, increased levels of 1,25D3 also activate a calcium-regulating gene called TRPV6, which leads to hypercalcemia. Griffin and his colleagues hope to eliminate this threat by developing 1,25D3 analogs (known as dissociated vitamin D receptor ligands or VDRMs) that differentially target BGLAP genes, while avoiding TRPV6. The idea is that if we could fingerprint how these various ligands interact with the vitamin D receptor, we could provide a kind of roadmap to help develop those that only trigger the nonhypercalcemia gene, Griffin said. Until now, developing more selective compounds has been hampered by the fact that no one understood the structural mechanism that makes them work. This study shows its possible to develop a drug that can alter certain aspects of the complex to avoid problematic activation of TRPV6 and the study points to novel ways to design potential therapeutics to treat osteoporosis safely and more effectively, Griffin noted. Griffin and his colleagues performed a detailed comparative biophysical study on hundreds of compounds, all with distinct chemical structures. Our results provide snapshots of distinct conformational ensembles of the receptor, which allows it to adopt different orientations depending on compound structure, DNA and co-activator binding, said TSRI Research Associate Jie Zheng, the first author of the study. This study shows the molecular mechanism of a selective vitamin D receptor modulator versus agonists and how they drive different interactions with co-regulators when associated with sequence-specific DNAs. The scientists used hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDX) mass spectrometry, a high-precision, high-sensitivity mapping technique that has proven to be a robust method to probe protein conformational or shape changing dynamics within the context of ligand and protein/protein interactions. HDX can show the specific regions of the protein complex that are altered on interaction with specific ligands, in this case the vitamin D receptor complex, information which can be used to infer structural changes that are the result of a specific interaction. In addition to Griffin and Zheng, other authors of the study, HDX Reveals the Conformational Dynamics of DNA Sequence Specific VDR Co-Activator Interactions, are Mi Ra Chang, Bruce D. Pascal, Scott J. Novick, and Ruben D Garcia-Ordonez of TSRI; and Jeffrey Dodge, Ryan E. Stites, Yong Wang, Keith R Stayrook and Michael J.

8 healthy living OCTOBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Respect the reality of dementiaWe are all guilty from time to time it is easy to become frustrated or annoyed with an elderly parent or senior spouse who is forgetful, repetitive, or confused. Even though we love them, and it is not their fault, we often slip and say something without thinking. Or we act in a way that only makes the situation worse. Theres a way to communicate better, react appropriately, and protect those we love and care for, it is called Validation Therapy. Validation Therapy invites us to step into their world. Seniors often realize their brains and bodies are declining, they are often sad as well as scared. Nobody wants to hear, how can you not remember that. I just told you a minute ago; or, you could do that if you really tried. Validation Therapy is a powerful method for communicating with people who have dementia, whether it is caused by Parkinsons disease, Alzheimers disease or another medical condition. The idea behind Validation Therapy is to understand and respect the way reality seems to the person who has dementia. This means stepping into their world, and trying to help within that framework. Validation Therapy can reduce anxiety, enhance selfesteem and avoid confrontation. Dont say, you already told me that ten times, or, how could you not remember you retired years ago, and attempt to correct the person, instead accept their reality in order to move forward. Heres two excellent examples: Margaret is 97 years old. She is calling out for her mother and seems upset and sad. She wants to talk to her mother on the phone, but she passed away 30 years ago. Correcting Margaret by telling her that her mother is dead is not a good approach. In Margarets mind, Margaret is a young girl and her mother is still alive, and Margaret is missing her mother. Telling her that her mother died might be shocking to Margaret and she might experience the grief of losing her mother all over again. Validation Therapy starts with empathy. Understand that Margaret is missing her mother and try to make Margaret feel better instead of challenging her belief that her mother is alive. Instead engage Margaret in a conversation about her mother: Where did your mother grow up? Tell me some of your favorite things you did with your mother! This validates Margarets feelings about missing her mother and helps her to express them. Once this occurs, it should be much easier to gently redirect Margaret toward taking a walk or sharing a meal. Oh, I see its almost time for lunch. Im starved. Would you like to join me? George is in his mid-80s. He is pacing nervously around the house he has lived in for the past 20 years, and is repeating, I want to go home, with increasing urgency. It might seem natural to respond by saying But, George. This IS your home and try to convince George by pointing to his favorite easy chair, photos of him with his family on the coffee table, and other things that should be recognizable. But this approach is unlikely to convince George he is home, and might escalate into an argument. It might even cause him to wander away from the home, get lost and put himself in danger. Using Validation Therapy, you would start by acknowledging Georges anxiety at not feeling like he is at home. In Georges reality, home could be the place where he lived as a child or as a young adult; the place he is now living is different from that. By exploring Georges feelings, we might be able to find the source of his discomfort. We can ask questions about Georges home. Tell me about your home, what is your favorite room? Were you able to walk to school? Once George expresses his feelings about his home, and we understand the underlying cause for his behavior, it should be easier to redirect George from his urgent need to leave. Alternatively, it might be that George needs to use the bathroom but cant articulate that I want to go home, could actually mean, I want to find the bathroom. We need to find the reason for Georges discomfort rather than correct him. The Validation Therapy approach can make all the difference between a calm, successful resolution and an escalated confrontation. Not every situation is easy to solve, and it is important to be creative, flexible, and keep calm. The key is to accept the reality that the person with dementia is perceiving and find a solution within that framework. Validation Therapy was created in the 1960s by Naomi Field, a social worker who worked extensively with dementia patients. Today, it enjoys wide acceptance by experts in the field. In fact, Alzheimers Community Care is currently working with the Palm Beach County Sherriffs Department to help them utilize Validation Therapy when they encounter a person with dementia. At Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches, we train our caregivers in the principles of Validation Therapy. We pose various hypothetical situations to them and see if they can find the right approach. We ask them to role play so we can see how they would react, and then train them in the appropriate response. Only then do we allow them to work with clients who have dementia. In the same vein, our caregivers are trained to work with Holocaust survivors by understanding the special challenges they face. We are working with Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Services on this initiative and our caregivers are attending their excellent Honoring Life training program. Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches has a refreshing and award-winning approach to homecare relationships. Let our Angels help you or a loved one while recovering from illness, accident or surgery, or assist with the care and companionship needed to remain comfortably and safely at home while aging in place, or dealing with the daily demands of living with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

Its important to know your familys history of breast cancer and whether you carry a specific gene mutation that increases your risk. Women who are positive for certain factors are considered high risk and should be especially proactive in monitoring their breast care, Dr. Taft explained. These risk factors include: Two or more relatives from the same side of the family diagnosed with breast cancer at any age One relative diagnosed with breast cancer before age 50, or a relative with an ovarian cancer diagnosis at any age A male relative with breast cancer Any family history of breast or ovarian cancer and Ashkenazi Jewish descent A personal history of breast cancer, atypia or lobular carcinoma in-situ A personal history of prior radiation therapy to the chest Known or suspected to carry the BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 gene mutations The High Risk Breast Screening Program at Jupiter Medical Center helps each patient understand the impact of their familys cancer history and provides testing for patients who may have genetic risk factors, Dr. Taft explained. For example, high-risk patients may benefit from regular screenings and close monitoring for early detection. This may include a combination of mammography, ultrasound and breast MRI, as well as a breast exam by a physician, on a semi-annual basis, rather than the traditional annual screenings for women of average risk for developing breast cancer. Jupiter Medical Centers Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center is equipped with state-of-the-art screening technologies for early detection. From 3-D mammography with the lowest radiation dose, to ultrasound breast imaging, bone density testing and a specialized MRI with Caring Suite to deliver soothing sights and sounds, Jupiter Medical Center is equipped to monitor and manage each patients breast health. A complimentary patient navigation service designed to guide patients through the diagnosis and treatment process is also provided. In addition, Jupiter Medical Center offers an array of advanced surgical technologies and procedures, including Hidden Scar nipple sparing surgery; SAVI SCOUT Surgical Guidance System; multiple breast reconstruction techniques; radiation therapy; e-IORT therapy; the Bionix Prone Breast System for enhanced patient comfort; and a wide range of tailored outpatient chemotherapy and infusion regimens. Breast cancer is a formidable opponent, and knowing whether you are at a higher risk of developing the disease is among the first steps to giving you the edge in defeating it. South Florida residents can rest assured in the knowledge that they have access to world-class breast care at Jupiter Medical Center.

10 healthy living OCTOBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYEmergency-room interventions shown to be effective in reducing suicide NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHThree interventions designed for follow up of patients who are identified with suicide risk in hospital emergency departments save lives and are cost effective relative to usual care. A study led by researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health modeled the use of the approaches in emergency departments and found that all three interventions compare favorably with a standard benchmark of cost-effectiveness used in evaluating healthcare costs. NIMH is part of the National Institutes of Health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; 44,193 people died by suicide in the United States in 2015, the most recent year for which statistics are available. One approach to reducing the suicide rate is to direct prevention strategies at high-risk groups or settings, such as emergency departments, where more than 500,000 people receive treatment each year for self-harm injuries. Research has found several emergency department-based interventions to be effective in preventing post-emergency suicide attempts, but none has been widely disseminated or adopted yet. They are: Postcards: Hospital staff mail follow-up postcards each month for four months to all patients identified as atrisk, and then every other month for a total of eight cards. Telephone outreach: One to three months after discharge, hospital staff call patients to offer support and encourage engagement in follow-up treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy: Hospital staff connect patients to a suicide-focused cognitive behavioral therapy program. Each of these interventions has been tested via randomized controlled trials and found to reduce patients suicide risk on the order of 30 to 50 percent. The current study extends this prior research by estimating the cost-effectiveness of these interventions, relative to usual care. The investigators carried out Monte Carlo simulations, a method of evaluating the possible consequences of an action when many unpredictable factors could affect the outc ome. The investigators modeled a roughly yearlong period following the arrival of patients at an emergency department. The chain of events they considered encompassed entry of the patient to an emergency department, screening for suicide risk, emergency departmentbased treatment or hospitalization and outcomes. It could also include additional visits to the emergency department, if the person considered or attempted suicide again during the follow-up period. The investigators estimated the cost of each intervention by combining information on health services reported in previous clinical trials and national rates for medical procedures, emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Relative to usual care, the use of postcards both reduced suicide attempts and deaths and slightly reduced health-care costs, making it a dominant intervention in terms of cost-effectiveness. Telephone outreach and cognitive behavioral therapy reduced suicide attempts and deaths while increasing health-care costs slightly, the former by $5,900 and the latter by $18,800 per additional life-year saved. A commonly used benchmark for cost-effectiveness the amount a society is willing to pay for the benefit accrued by a health care procedure is $50,000 per additional life-year. And recent research suggests that that amount is conservative that is, our society is willing to pay considerably more per life-year.A recent study reported that screening all those (18 and older) entering an emergency department for risk of suicide, regardless of the reason for the visit, nearly doubled the rate of identification of those at risk. The model suggests that universal screening of patients could substantially increase the public health benefits of implementing the prevention strategies modeled in this study.Suicide risk is relatively common among people who seek care from a hospital emergency department, said lead investigator Michael Schoenbaum, Ph.D., senior advisor for Mental Health Services, Epidemiology and Economics in NIMHs Division of Services and Intervention Research. Its really important for us to identify better ways to reduce suicide risk in this group and to implement those widely.The NIMH report was published in the Sept. 15 issue of the journal Psychiatric Services. The clot thickens: Preventing deep vein thrombosis SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in HealthLots of things can cause pain and swelling in your leg. But if your symptoms stem from a blood clot deep in your leg, it can be dangerous. Blood clots can happen to anyone, anytime. But some people are at increased risk. Taking steps to reduce your chances of a blood clot forming in your veins can help you avoid potentially serious problems. Blood clots can arise anywhere in your body. They develop when blood thickens and clumps together. When a clot forms in a vein deep in the body, its called deep vein thrombosis. Deep vein blood clots typically occur in the lower leg or thigh. Deep vein thrombosis has classic symptoms for example swelling, pain, warmth and redness on the leg, says Dr. Andrei Kindzelski, a National Institutes of Health blood disease expert. But about 30 to 40 percent of cases go unnoticed, since they dont have typical symptoms. In fact, some people dont realize they have a deep vein clot until it causes a more serious condition. Deep vein clots especially those in the thigh can break off and travel through the bloodstream. If a clot lodges in an artery in the lungs, it can block blood flow and lead to a sometimesdeadly condition called pulmonary embolism. This disorder can damage the lungs and reduce blood oxygen levels, which can harm other organs as well. Some people are more at risk for deep vein thrombosis than others. Usually people who develop deep vein thrombosis have some level of thrombophilia, which means their blood clots more rapidly or easily, Dr. Kindzelski says. Getting a blood clot is usually the first sign of this condition because its hard to notice otherwise. In these cases, lifestyle can contribute to a blood clot forming if you dont move enough, for example. Your risk is higher if youve recently had surgery or broken a bone, if youre ill and in bed for a long time, or if youre traveling for a long time (such as during long car or airplane rides). Having other diseases or conditions can also raise your chances of a blood clot. These include a stroke, paralysis (an inability to move), chronic heart disease, high blood pressure, surgical procedure, or having been recently treated for cancer. Women who take hormone therapy pills or birth control pills, are pregnant, or within the first six weeks after giving birth are also at higher risk. So are those who smoke or who are older than 60. But deep vein thrombosis can happen at any age. You can take simple steps to lower your chances for a blood clot. Exercise your lower leg muscles if youre sitting for a long time while traveling. Get out of bed and move around as soon as youre able after having surgery or being ill. The more active you are, the better your chance of avoiding a blood clot. Take any medicines your doctor prescribes to prevent clots after some types of surgery. A prompt diagnosis and proper treatment can help prevent the complications of blood clots. See your doctor immediately if you have any signs or symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. A physical exam and other tests can help determine whether or not youve got a blood clot. There are many ways to treat deep vein thrombosis. Therapies aim to stop the blood clot from getting bigger, prevent the clot from breaking off and moving to your lungs, or reduce your chance of having another blood clot. NIH scientists continue to research new medicines and better treatment options. If you think you may be at risk for deep vein thrombosis, talk with your doctor. Clues of a clotSeek treatment if you have these symptoms. They may signal a deep vein clot or pulmonary embolism: Swelling of the leg or along a vein in the leg Pain or tenderness in the leg, which you may feel only when standing or walking Increased warmth in the area of the leg thats swollen or painful Red or discolored skin on the leg Unexplained shortness of breath Pain with deep breathing Coughing up blood
