Dogs, owners turn out
for 'Puppy Love' event


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH
- Cute, friendly female
seeks tall, dark, handsome
and... fluffy?
The Bark Park in
Anchorage Park was filled
with couples of the four-
legged, furry variety at
Puppy Love, an event
hosted by the North Palm
Beach Recreation Depart-
ment on Feb. 10.
"We wanted to do the
event to promote aware-
ness of the Bark Park and
because for some people
who may not have a signif-
icant other or child, their
dog is that to them," said
Bill Egan, the depart-
ment's coordinator/super-
visor.
Chiquita, a 3-year-old
Chihuahua, looked .like
owner Gina Seebauer's
sweetheart decked out in


pink dress with a tutu
skirt, a pink pearl necklace
and red nails.
"She loves to dress up.
That way she knows she's
going bye-bye," said Ms.
Seebauer.
She learned about the
Bark Park while enjoying
the event, and plans to
come back on a regular
basis.
"This is great for us to let
her come out and run
(someplace) besides the
beach," said Ms. Seebauer.
Since more people are
incorporating their dogs
into their daily lives, the
Village has hosted "Yappy
Holidays" in December for
the past few years. It has
been successful with
approximately 100 dogs
and 200 humans in atten-
dance. However, since
people are usually busy at
that time of the year, they
decided Valentine's Day

Sprawl mediation ends in draw


Officials want
more time,
to reach
agreement

BY JOHN SHANNON
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS After an all-day
meeting last Monday,
staffers from Palm Beach
County, three cities and
Callery Judge Grove, a 50-
year-old citrus grower
that wants to turn its
4,000' acres of citrus trees
into a small town, decid-
ed they need more time to
hash things out.
In their first mediation,
which is an informal,solu-
tion-seeking process that,


in this case, is required
before potential lawsuits
are filed, representatives
from Royal Palm Beach,
West Palm Beach and
Palm Beach Gardens met
at Gardens' City Hall to
reach some kind of
accord.
The aforementioned
city officials objected to
Callery's proposed devel-
opment in May.
The only person
allowed to comment on
the private meeting was
mediator Tom Taylor of
the Florida Conflict Reso-
lution Consortium in Tal-
lahassee.
"Ideally, there will be a
recommendation from
this group," Mr. Taylor
said, adding that it would
then be on the public
record and presented to


the Palm Beach County
Commission. "They don't
have to agree to anything,
but by having parties par-
ticipate in a less adversar-
ial setting than a court-
room, there's the oppor-
tunity to listen to each
other, generate options
and reach solutions that
have never been thought
of."
If Callery's proposal is
approved, the county
would have to change its
comprehensive plan to
make way for traffic and
environmental impact, as
a result of building 10,000
additional homes and 3-
million- square-feet of
retail and office space in
Loxahatchee.

Bank gets on

bandwagon to

support local charity


BY JOHN SHANNON
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Hundreds gathered in the
opulent 6,000-square-foot
lobby of Seacoast National
Bank last week, not only to
meet local artist Edna Hibel,
but to support local charities
by purchasing her paintings.
The bank's third big event
since it opened its three-
story building across from
the Gardens Mall in June,
the Feb. 8 reception kicked
off three weeks during
which Ms. Hibel's art,
including her $55,000 "Fam-
ily in the Field" oil-on-silk,
will be on display and for

purchase at the bank.
Thirty percent of whatever
is sold from Ms. Hibel's near-
ly $3 million inventory at
Seacoast, one of 43 offices in
Florida, goes to support
Club 100 Charities.
"This is immensely impor-
tant to Club 100," said Harry
Drier, one of the founders of
the faith-based men's club
devoted to the youth, elderly
and families of the area. "We
have a number of projects
sitting on our desk that
demand a buck here and a
buck there; but because
we're all volunteers and we
don't come from money,
what we can do relates to
what we can get from events
like this."
In its two years of opera-
tion, it's contributed more
than $40,000 to support the
Palm Beach Marine Institute
for at risk youth, the Twice
Blessed resale boutique -
which also aids the commu-
nity the Palm Beach
County Boys' Book Club and
more.
Clay and Karen Harrow of
Palm Beach Gardens were
present at the event to show
their loyalty to the club of
men that, in conjunction
with the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Police Athletic
League, helped launch the
Cabana Colony Youth Cen-
ter on Alternate A1A in Palm
Beach Gardens. The center
houses Club 100's highly
successful, after-school box-
ing program run by 'PAL,
boxing coach Tom Graceffo
and others.
As they drove past the cen-
ter one day with two of their
four children in tow, 9-year-
old Griffin and 12-year-old
Hayden yelped out unmis-
takably affirmative replies

when asked if they wanted
to learn how to box, said Mr.
Harrow.
Both parents are smitten
with PAL's boxing guide-
lines, which demand that its
8- to 19-year-old members
show respect to their com-
munity and themselves by
striving for the best grades
they can get and by staying
away from unlawful activi-
ties.
"It motivates them to do
homework early so they can
go to boxing," added Mrs.
Harrow.
Gardens Councilman
David Levy also attended
the event in support of Club
100 Charities' focus on chil-
dren.
"I'm going to quote the
mayor here: 'Children are
100 percent of our future,'"


he said. "And I think Sea-
coast is doing a wonderful
thing being involved in the
community."
It's a big part of the Sea-
coast philosophy, said bank
president Greg Leach.
"Every one of my officers
picks a charity that they're
passionate about," he said.
In this case, it was Monica
Krumbock, who also hired
the Paraguayan harpist,
Marcos Vega, whose sound
lent a magical air to the
event.
Seacoast National Bank is
located at 3001 PGA Blvd. in
Palm Beach Gardens.

Club 100 Charities, call Leigh

Love," owners could get a
photo of them with their
"Valentine."
The pets also took home
prizes from various con-
tests. Dogs competed for
best tail wagger, best trick,
best kisser and best cos-
tume/most themed dog.
Karen Sitarik's American
Eskimo, Snowball, wore a
pink fabric collar adorned
with Scooby Doo and pink
hearts, as she competed
for best trick. Snowball
jumped through a sparkly
hula-hoop as her owner
waved a treat at her from
the opposite side.


"(The American Eskimo
breed) was used in Bar-
num and Bailey's circus in
the 1930s, so we figured
(Snowball) should know at
least, one circus trick," said
Ms. Sitarik.
The honor of best kisser
went to Maria, a German
short hair pointer mix,
who knocked owner Todd
Vittum to the ground with
her affection during the
contest.
For owners who needed
to show their dogs a little
tough love, Robin Billings,
owner of The Perfect Pup
in Palm Beach Gardens,


demonstrated some of her
obedience training tech-
niques.
Representatives from
the Promenade Village
Animal Clinic of Palm
Beach Gardens were also
at the event to answer
questions.
For people looking for a
four-legged, furry com-
panion, the Pet Mobile
from Peggy Adams Animal
Rescue League of West
Palm Beach was parked in
front of the Bark Park from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Details
about the seven cats and
10 dogs were written in


personal ad style. A 2-year-
old black male cat tried to
court a potential adopter
with a sign that stated, "I'm
not your typical bqy; I'm
sensitive, sweet and a great
listener. I also love to cud-'
dle! Most importantly, I'll
never break your heart!"
Despite such promised
affection, no matches were
made, said Kristin Eich, a
kennel tech at Peggy
Adams.
Aside from that, the
event was a success and
the Village plans to host
"Puppy Love" again next
year, said Mr. Egan.


SINGER ISLAND

Residents to vote on
Ocean Mall issues

Along with deciding who
they want on city council,
Singer Island and Riviera
Beach residents will also get
to decide if they want a
height limit of five stories
on buildings constructed
on the Ocean Mall property
and on how long the prop-
erty can be leased.
Palm Beach County Cir-
cuit Judge Glenn Kelley
ruled in favor of Dawn
Pardo, a Singer Island resi-
dent and president of the
Public Beach Coalition, and
all Riviera Beach residents
on Feb. 5. The city filed for
an appeal on Feb. 8, which
put a stay on the items
going on the ballot. A hear-
ing was held on Feb. 9, and
Judge Kelley granted a lift
on the stay so the items
could be put on the ballot,
said attorney John Jor-
gensen, who represented
Ms. Pardo.
"Riviera Beach residents
finally win one," said Ms.
Pardo.
After city clerk Carrie
Ward and city councilors
decided that petitions start-
ed by Ms. Pardo and a com-
mittee were insufficient,
Ms. Pardo filed a lawsuit
against the city. The peti-
tions sought to limit height
and lease requirements -
from 99 to 50 years and
repeal the city's ordinance
that increased the lease
length.
Riviera Beach officials
filed a lawsuit against the
petition committee, which
sought a declaratory judg-
ment that the petitions
were invalid.


Since both lawsuits
involved the same issues,
Judge Kelley decided both
of them.
Repealing the ordinance
'about the lease was not put
on the ballot because that
issue can only be resolved
by an evidentiary hearing,
said Judge Kelley.
No date has been set for
one as of press time, but it
will happen, said Ms. Pardo.
However, in its agree-
ment with the city, Palm
Beach Gardens-based
Catalfumo Construction,
which has plans to con-
struct a mixed-use resi-
dence and retail center on
the property, stated they
would go with what voters
decided in terms of the
lease.
Since the items are going
to ballot, Ms. Pardo and
other members of the peti-
tion committee are getting
the word out to have a good
turn out at the polls.
"We have set up meetings
with homeowner associa-
tions, churches, and neigh-
borhood leaders. We will
also remind the 4,100 peo-
ple that signed the petition
that they need to take the
next step and vote," said
Ms. Pardo.

From page Al
Wayne Huizenga Jr., took its
proposed six-story yacht
manufacturing center -
that was to be built near
20th Street and Broadway
- off the table in August
after conflicts over hiring
city residents to work at the


site arose.
Riviera Beach City Coun-
cil members wanted
Rybovich to offer at least 60
jobs to city residents, but
there was a lack of qualified
residents.
Other issues also played
into the yacht maker's deci-
sion, including contract
renewals for City Redevel-
opment Agency director


Floyd Johnson and Bernard
Kinsey, the city's lead nego-
tiator for redevelopment
projects. A letter written by
CarlosVidueira, a vice presi-
dent at Rybovich, cited
"uncertainty about the
future business climate" of
Riviera Beach as the reason
the company withdrew its
plan.
Mr. Johnson's and Mr.


Kinsey's contracts were
renewed, and discussions
between Ms. Lee, represen-

side.
Such requests prompt
responses from state and
federal authorities. And
negative comments can
either help tone the project
down or cancel it outright,
Mr. Whiffield said. If it's a
wetland controversy, for
example, state and federal
officials may ask project
engineers if they can work
around or mitigate. Enough
controversy can kick the
project up to the state legis-
lature or the Federal High-
wayAdministration.
Federal guidelines
regarding noise and cost-
per-household-affected
determine how much fed-
eral money the project
gets supplemented. Each
home affected by the pro-
jected carries a $35,000
price tag.
"That may generate a
couple million dollars,"
Mr. Whitfield said.
But the project's biggest
time constraint centers on
the 20 crossovers on five
bridges that carry the
turnpike over canals or
roads.
Though turnpike offi-
cials have the option not
to widen, such a decision
might mean congestion in
other areas of the city.

loy- north of the Lake Worth
get Road Interchange to a little
get north of Indiantown Road
they in Jupiter, to eight lanes.
"We take our cue from the
MPO," said Jeff Hansen,
public information officer
for District 8 of the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise.
And, in turn, the state-cre-
ated MPO, which sets priori-
ties regarding the turnpike's
long-range growth plans,
bases that 'on county and
municipality comprehen-
sive plans.
"In this particular case,
(area officials) are stepping
out a little ahead," said
Randy Whitfield, director of
the county's MPO. "We
show only .eight lanes up to
Okeechobee and' they're
projecting a need for eight
lanes further north, which
we tend to agree with, we
just haven't made an official
update to our plan."
Every five years, the Flori-
da Department of Trans-
portation must sign off on
the MPO's "long-range
transportation system plan"-
which looks 25 years into
the future.
"It's an expensive practice,
so we try not to do it more
than five years," he said.
It's also an arduously long
approval process to widen
or extend the turnpike's cur-
rent 454-mile system, which
carries about 2 million cars
a day and, in 2005, banked
: nearly $700 million in toll
and concession revenue.
"From concept to con-
crete it takes 15 years," Mr.
Whitfield said, delineating
the length of time needed
for each step, including
study, design and, for this
proposal, about two years of
construction.
And that means two years
of slow downs.
A combination of safety
precautions and gaper's
delays may slow .traffic
S down in sections from 70
e mph to 55 mph and 35 mph,

Scams
From page A1


one can do to prevent senior
fraud."
Attorney Anne Desormi-
er-Cartwright of Palm Beach
Gardens has seen 23 years of
it right in her own county,
which has nearly 10 percent
more seniors than the
national average of 12.5 per-
cent.
Her practice specializes in
senior concerns, and nearly
half of her senior clientele
were victims of some sort of
swindle.
"(Fraud) happens much
more than we would want to
admit," she said. "From tele-
phone solicitation to a con-
tractor coming to the door
saying, 'Oh, look, I'll fix this
for you,' these poor people,
who have nobody, are trust-
ing this person is honest and
all too often they are not."
Home Instead was named
for its goal to help seniors
stay in their own homes by
offer ig caregiver services to
more than 300,000 people
around the world from its
more than 700 franchised


offices, including one in
LakeWorth.
Triads are partnerships
among law enforcement
agencies, community
groups and senior citizens to
promote senior safety. The
national organization has
spawned nearly 850 of them
in the county with more
17,000 senior volunteers.
Edward Hutchison, Triads'
program director, said in a
release that seniors, espe-
cially those who live alone,
may even be put on a "suck-
er's list" where they continue
to be harassed.
To counteract this, Triads
and Home Instead are
bringing attention to the top
five scams: home improve-
ment fraud, sweepstakes
scams, "phishing" schemes,
Internet fraud and identity
theft.
Seniors can avoid various
home improvement scams
by refusing to pay up front
and thoroughly checking
out the companies that offer
services, experts said.


They should also be leery
of notifications that claim
they suddenly won a big
prize. Asking "winners" to
cover taxes on sweepstakes
prizes by returning a portion
of the bogus checks can
siphon fortunes from long-
standing accounts.
"Phishing" schemes hap-
pen when a senior is per-
suaded that bank informa-
tion was leaked. Con artists
call to verify credit card and
Social Security numbers.
Invoices that include such
information should be
shredded before discarded
to lessen the chances of
identity theft, they added.
Unfamiliarity with the
Internet can also result in
giving private information
away, which is why Home
Instead, Triad and other spe-
cialists advise seniors to set
up some kind of support
group comprised of neigh-
bors, church and family
members that can help each
other keep the "gold" in their
golden years.

SOS

Shame on the Shores.
When I bought my home in the Shores (in Jupiter), I
didn't realize it was a neighborhood of trash.
As I jog through the Shores neighborhood (from one
end of Longshore Drive to the other and from one end
of Northfork Road to the other) I can't help noticing all
the trash discarded on the roadside.
A few observations: During the school Christmas
holiday break, the amount of trash was down by about
40 percent (my opinion).
It is amazing how there may be a trash receptacle 10
feet from the bus stop, but the juice bottles and cans are
just thrown on the ground.
The rest of the trash tends to be beer cans (hopefully
not from the school-agers), soda cans and cups and
wrappers from McDonalds and Taco Bell. They are
open late hours and some of the trash may be from
people coming home late from clubs and bars.
Been there, done that, but never had a propensity to
throw trash out of the car.
Today I found papers on Longshore that included a
mapquest printout of directions from 18820 Sweet
Gum Court to Home Depot in Fort Lauderdale and
school activity notices from Cardinal Newman High
School. Shame on that household.
Sometimes I am inclined to pick up some of the trash
and put it in the receptacles along the sidewalk, but, oh
yeah, then I have to avoid all the piles of dog crap in the

grass. I love dogs, but it is the owners who ignore the
leash and pick-up rules that bother me.
So, unless people pick-up after themselves and their
pets, we are resigned to living in the crappy, trashy neigh-
borhood known as the Shores.

Raccoons

I'd like to rave about raccoons (a gray North American,
chiefly tree dwelling mammal with a black mask, a bushy
ringed tail and nocturnal habits). I've always enjoyed
seeing them. They have beautiful eyes. When growing up
in Maine on one particular camping trip, I happened
upon one that was engaged in quite a feast on our
packed food, having burrowed through the Tupperware.


Now I'd like to rant about how sad it is to see so many
laying off the shoulder of the road as if they had no
chance to react to a speeding car. I imagine the look of
fright on their faces in their last moment, and now, as I
look on, it seems they are sleeping much as a baby on its
side.
This happened not long ago on a Sunday on Hood
Road in Palm Beach Gardens. If Florida Fish and Wildlife
came here they would have full-time work for all the
dead raccoons I've seen, since so much construction
began.
After church, I drove down the hill to see the baby rac-
coon lying there. I felt a tug on my heart, as if it belonged

Letters


Just one person needs to speak up

To the editor:

I loved the story on your Web site (by staff writer Mark
Koopmans in the Brevard County edition of Hometown
News) about the resident in Brevard County who man-
aged to get the county commissioners to look at ending
the suffering of one of Florida's threatened species: the
gopher tortoise.
SI hope Palm Beach County's Hometown News will con-
sider running the story also, because it is an inspiring
example of how one person can make a huge difference
in the community just by speaking up.
The two-year action plan that the Brevard commis-
sioners developed (after a concerned resident com-
plained about the current policy on gopher tortoises that
occupy space on buildable land) plans to find incentives
for land/homeowners who will agree to accept gopher
tortoises that need to be relocated.
I was unaware that these tortoises have a life span of
50 years. Mr. Koopmans' article explained that currently,
if a developer plans to build on land occupied by gopher
tortoises, the creatures are considered "incidental take,"
which is different from "accidental take."
According to the article, the term incidental take allows
the developer, while he is having the land graded or lev-
eled, to bury the tortoise alive while the creatures are in
their burrows.
Another point I learned from this courageous article
was that a gopher tortoise burrow can be up to 40 feet
long and the poor animal can take up to six months to die
after being buried. This magnificent animal within our
fragile ecosystem, provides shelter for several other crea-
tures that share the burrow.
I am going to contact our county commissioners with
the hope that they will be inspired by this article and
work with our natural resource management depart-
ment to develop a similar plan.
Goodness knows it will benefit the land/homeowner to
receive an incentive as well as the animal and our ecosys-
tem. And, we'll all sleep better knowing that this is just
the right thing to do.

Susanna Walker
Jupiter


Editor's note: Hometown News Palm Beach County
reporters have covered this topic. In the Dec. 9, 2005 issue,
former staff writer Pamela Sichel wrote about a colony of
gopher tortoises who were successfully relocafed to Jupiter
after Palm Beach Gardens-based Catalfumo Construction
discovered them living on land it was developing to
expand Kyoto Gardens Drive. The construction : I.mpany
spent $99,000 to relocate the gopher tortoises., ,
In an April 14, 2006 article, staff writer john Shuinnon,
described how two developments in Palm Beach Gardens
dealt with gopher tortoises. While developers of the Palo-
ma parcel on the corner of Military Trail and Hood Road
opted to relocate its colony, WCT' developers, which built
the Evergrene community on Hood Road. installed tr-
toise fencing along its property to protect them. In addi-
tion, the city of Palm Beach Gardens has an ordinance in
place that prevents developers from using "taking permits,
city officials said.
Leann Welch of the Palm Beach County Environmental
Resources Department, said the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's code is mandated to be used
in all counties throughout the state.
Biologist Ricardo Zamnbrano, of the South Florida
Regional Office of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion, reported that gopher tortoises are protected in Flori-
da as a species of special concern, meaning that it is illegal
to take, harm or harass them. Destroying burrows is con-
sidered "taking." The wildlife commission's Web site
www.myfwc.com, lists options available to developers,
which include avoiding burrows by 25 feet, relocating
colonies, providing protection or 'taking' under certain.
state authorizedconditions. Mr.
Zambrano said that fees charged under authorized tak
ings are applied toward land purchase for burrowing
species'habitat.

County should be helping to solve the problem of caring
for the homeless at Westgate Tabernacle instead, they
have chosen to litigate to prove there is a problem. I gen-
erally support the county. I understand and appreciate
the county's work. However, in this case, Palm Beach
County should rethink its position.
I learned the expression noblesse oblige the day JFK was
shot. I thought the man on TV was saying, "No bless
nosebleed." I asked my teacher, Mrs. Gregg, what it
meant.: She sighed, shook her heads, sat down and
grinned at me. She told me howto say it and said that our
leaders and many others have special privileges because
they are smarter, stronger, have more money and know
more people than most folks. These people were fortu-
nate to have most anything and do as they pleased.
But, she said, those blessed with privilege were also
obligated to use their gifts, talents and resources to help
those less fortunate. Most of us have enough to say grace
over and then some. We have many of the smartest and
most talented people in the world living in Palm Beach
County. I am ashamed that we have not met our obliga-
tions to the homeless: families living in cars, single moth-
ers with small children, Vietnam vets, the mentally ill, the
diseased, street people.,
Westgate Tabernacle needs food0ito, feed 160 people,
including 35 children, everyday. If you look at their food
pantry, and then yours, you probably have more food.
Milk and eggs are a luxury.
The tabernacle receives no government support
because it is a church. They need the basics: food,
clothes for men, women and children; blankets, sheets,
pillows and hygiene items. They need our.help. Noblesse
oblige.

Rants & Raves
From page A6
to me. I felt a need to place flowers beside it, since that
was now all I could do.
I wonder if someone would be able to help the rac-
coons, as well as the other wild animals with nowhere to
go. They are God's creation. The animals were here before
us, in the beginning.

Just a quick question

I'd like someone to publicly ask President Bush about:
going into Iran before he does more saber rattling, as he
did with Iraq. I'd like to know if he is willing to let his
daughters go through basic training and lead the charge.

Not my taxes :

How did we get from scorning single women for having
babies to praising them? The new single mom title is dis-
gusting, not cute. It is in your face injustice.
I'm sick and tired of paying higher taxes for illegitimate
children. I advocate paying for one mistake. There is pro-
gram after program and sex education. The powers that
be distribute enormous amounts of money for these
people.
It is not my business if a person cranks out 100 babies,
so long as she can pay for them. It is my business when
they are on the public dole.
The solution is: get married and don't breed 'em if you
can't feed 'em.

The police never cease to amaze

It never ceases to amaze me about the police in this lit-
tle Stuart area. We don't have enough to arrest a cop who
was driving drunk at Christmas, but now you have six
cop cars sitting at the bottom of the Roosevelt Bridge giv-
ing people tickets as they get over the bridge.

C Who pays for 'free' health care?

In the Feb. 2 issue of rants and raves,, a writer replied to
a previous post about free health care for children by
expressing an opinion that there should be free health
b care for everyone.
a The justification was that it has worked so well, and
2 care was so much better in other countries, such as Eng-
_- land, as witnessed by unnamed and undocumented
studies. The person also suggested a "fair tax" to pay for
it.
b Here is my suggestion to them. Wait until your neigh-
bor has arrived home from a hard day at work. A good
day would be April 15, or the day they have received their
latest property tax bill.
Go ring their doorbell. When they answer, stick your
open hand in their face and demand that they give you
money to pay for your health care.
While you are there, you may as well demand money
for a park, the environment, open space, etc.
After they have slammed the door in your face, go back
home and write a letter to the newspaper, your state rep-


resentative, and anyone else about how greedy and self-
ish those people are, and that you demand they stick the
gun of government in their face and take the money.
Then, if that doesn't work, pack your bags and sell your
home, which the government rents to you just like in
England, and move to England.
Viola! Your problems are solved.
Hellloooo, the founding fathers of America left England
because they were tired of working, and being serfs, to a
feudal king.
A feudal state is no better. Take enough of a person's
paycheck to pay for social nirvana and they will have no
incentive to work. Elect politicians to do this, and the rest
of us who pull your cart will not pull it anymore.

Free health care

This is in response to the person who believes that
everyone should receive "free" health care.
First of all, socialized health care will never be "free." It
will be expensive, and we will all pay for it in one way or
another, just like they must in Canada.
There they finance what can charitably be called a slow
and mediocre system with high income tax rates, a feder-
al sales tax, and high fees for driver's licenses and vehicle
tags.
The ranter also stated that people in England are
"much healthier than we are."
If in fact this were true, the cause would more likely be
a difference in lifestyle, rather than any advantage of
their health care system.
In addition, one necessary ingredient that makes uni-
versal health care even remotely feasible is government
control of medical and drug expenses.
All countries with socialized health care, and many
without it, keep strict controls on drug and medical
costs.
Any presidential candidate who had the courage to
propose such vital controls would certainly have my
vote.

Prepare for tornados

Weren't we lucky that we didn't get any tornados?
I have made a lot of preparations and yet I was running
around scared, getting things together that I should've
gotten together before.
I think it's time we all think about being prepared.
We should have water on hand. Empty those bottles
and fill them up with fresh water. Be sure you have food
and legible addresses of your contacts under your phone
or on your refrigerator.
Have a grab-and-go bag. Be sure to get rid of old things
in them, such as phone bills from 1980. Have it simmered
down to a few things and put it where you can get it
quickly.
Be sure you know where extra keys and glasses are.
You might even get a new address book for 2007, in
case there are things in there you would like to update
and change.
Also, know where your "safe space" is so you know
where to go.
These are very important things to think about. I called
some neighbors to warn them and they were happy I did


because they didn't have their televisions on. There are
people that may not know that we can help as well.

Florida driving humor

To the person who was concerned about Florida driv-
ers, perhaps he or she was unfamiliar with local styles.
Here are some driving tips:
Wait for 10 to 15 seconds after the traffic light turns
green. This will be enough time to cause some anxiety
and concern from the drivers who are following you.
Never use the turn signal until you are actually turning.
Don't let the drivers behind you know what you intend to
do.
When turning left from a turning lane, never drive par-
allel to the lines always leave a good portion of the rear of
the car sticking out to partially block passing traffic.
Occasionally make a left turn from the right lane
and/or make a right turn from the left lane. This will help
to keep other drivers on the alert.
Do all of this while using a cell phone. And if you don't
have phone, hold one hand to the ear and pretend.
I hope this helps.

Do you want to be a city manager?

How to get hired as a city manager at a larger munici-
pality, and keep your job:
Apply for the position, and hope that the first choice
doesn't accept.
Get fired from your job as city manager in a smaller
city.
Don't properly count the ditches, and overpay the con-
tractor.
Bid jobs and accept the lowest bid from a contractor
with a bad reputation.
Allow staff to be rude to councilpersons.
Be a, smooth talker, maybe your contract will get
renewed and you'll get a raise.

Snowbird complainers

In response to "Pray the snowbirds don't go west,"
,enough already!
If you can afford to spend $25,000 each year when
down here, please shut up.
I personally do not believe you spend that much down
here. I have a feeling you are one of those cheaposs" I see
leaving no tip for the waitress. As for snowbirds not hav-
ing any school age children, neither do I.
I moved down here from Illinois to get away from the
cold and be near our daughter. Actually we could not
afford to retire up north. We moved here in 1997 before
the housing boom.
I would like to have seen much slower growth. I also
would have liked to have seen a better class of people
moving in. I also wish I did not have to experience (hurri-
canes) Frances, Jeanne and Wilma. Were you here for
them? I didn't think so. I also wish the. gridlock during
"the season" would go away. Your ignorance on the road
is something to behold.
In closing, I will pray that the snowbirds will shut up,
leave a tip, learn some manners or go west!

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".'


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
] know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectai
customers.


Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into


your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete outthe-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was


able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.
Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
"clean up South Florida".. In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-


serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.

Last year, the Florida
Department of Communi-
ty Affairs in Tallahassee
cited numerous objections
to the proposal, which
county officials could
choose to ignore.
At the beginning of the
month, after a meeting of
municipalities that com-
prised the district of Palm
Beach County Commis-
sioner Karen Marcus, Palm
Beach Gardens Mayor
Joseph Russo said he
desired a solution vs. a flat
rejection of the Callery
Judge proposal."
But Callery Judge, after a
feast of other potential
development, is just one
piece of the land-amend-
ment pie that affected resi-
dents might reluctantly
have to choke down.
Mecca Farms, a few
miles to the east of Callery,
which the county bought
four years ago to locate the
Florida Scripps Research
Institute, already, has
approval for an additional
9,400 traffic trips per day.
If Sunrise-based G.L.


Homes and Boca Raton-
based E.B. Developers,
both of which also want to
build thousands of homes
in the western tier, are
approved, county traffic
engineers said that North-
lake Boulevard would be
overloaded. And this equa-
tion doesn't. take into
account what the owners
of the neighboring Vavrus
property want to eventual-
ly do in the future.
Furthermore, Everglades
restoration requirements
Would lose out on the help
that converting those areas
into wetlands could bring.
In previous interviews,
Commissioner Karen Mar-
cus said that the solution
rests with her fellow com-
missioners focusing on the
environmental and traffic
concerns of her northern
district, and not blind
desire for high, taxpayer
returns. But that's the
problem with single-mem-
ber districts, she said.

Tackling mental health


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH -
When it comes to matters of
the mind, they've got
patients covered.,
Psychiatrists Laura De
Luca and Aron Tendler
recently opened a practice
that offers mental health
patients options the doctors
noticed were lacking in their
field during their residencies
in New Orleans, La.
"We were not liking the
way psychiatry was going. It
sort of lost the respect the
,field had (gained) previous-
ly. The only way we could
think of to get it back was
opening our own office,"
said Dr. De Luca.
While she and Dr. Tendler
continued their residencies,
they began the project that
would eventually become
Advanced Mental ,Health
Care.
"We were just doing it
piece-meal from out of
state, coming down on
weekends to pick office
locations," said Dr. De Luca.
Their Royal Palm Beach
office opened its doors in
July 2006, followed by a
North Palm .Beach office
.opening in December. The
doctors decided to open
their second office, since
some of their patients were
driving from as far as Stuart
and Vero Beach to see them,
said Dr. De Luca.
Dr. De Luca, Dr. Tendler,
Andrew Rubin and Holly
LaSalle-Ricci approach
patient care in a different
way.
"We don't have any 15-
minute appointments (like
psychiatrists usually do). We
work from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
every day, including week-
ends," said Dr. De Luca.
The doctors make house
calls for patients who suffer
from anxiety or agorapho-
bia, a fear of going out in
public or leaving their "safe"
zone, said Dr. LaSalle-Ricci.
House calls are also made
to perform in-home detoxi-
fication for patients dealing
with substance abuse. For
these sessions, a patient's
blood pressure is taken, a
medical exam is performed
and medication is given,


said Dr. De Luca.
Patients can also have
one-on-one sessions with
the doctors without leaving
their houses using telepsy-
chiatry, which involves a
Web cam and high-speed
Internet connection.
"The whole'point is to see
someone's face, because
sometimes patients are
scared to tell us about their
emotions, but we can pick
up on a lot from body lan-


.. elos Paz


guage and expressions," said
Dr. De Luca.
. Telepsychiatry is especially
helpful when it comes to
treating patients who are
seasonal residents, she-said.
Dr.. De Luca is licensed in
Florida, Louisiana and New
York. Dr. Tendler is licensed
in Florida, Illinois, NewYork,
California and Louisiana.
Being available to their

Tendler, Holly LaSalle-Ricci

Mark Bates, the former vil-
lage manager. Whoever gets
elected will be deciding the
manager, and we need a
team builder, someone who
understands our dynamic.
Something we lost with Mr.
Bates was our ability to
have a unified team of
employees.
I want to maintain the
infrastructure and improve
our community. I would
like to bring in some out-
side viewpoints.
Representatives from
advisory committees
should come forward and
make presentations at
- Council meetings. I have
issues with staff reiterating
what a board has said with-
out representatives there to
speak.
I also want the Village to
figure out the next step to
take in regards to renovat-
ing Anchorage Park.
The tennis infrastructure
at the North Palm Beach
Country Club does need to
be improved, however, I do
have a conflict of interest as
my wife plays tennis. It's a
shame that with all the
money put toward the golf
part of the country club,
there wasn't any put aside
for the tennis part.
Staff needs to start think-
ing about business growth
on the U.S. 1 and Northlake
Boulevard corridors.
One of my platforms is we
need to become more busi-
ness-friendly. I believe city
hall is almost anti-business.
One example of that is they
sent Village' business own-
ers a notification to pay
their business taxes 10 days
before they were due on
Oct. 1, and the letter stated
that if owners did not pay
on time, they would be
charged a late fee. I think we
need to be conscious of
these people who are hard-
working folks in our com-
munity.
In terms of projects, I
want to bring common
sense. For instance, the
council chose Magnolia
trees to be used for the
Northlake beautification
project. They grow 30 feet in
height and were placed
directly under power lines.
I also want to continue on
North Palm Beach's work to
maintain old-time values
because there are people
wanting to turn the Village
into Boca Raton.
I also want to take care of
residents' concerns.
For instance, on Button-
wood Road, where I live, the
drainage is horrible. There
are residents who, every
time it rains, face the
chance of their homes,
flooded.
There were four people at
the last Council meeting
talking about that problem.
I'm amazed that we have
yet to allocate the money to

replace to take care of it. It's
a significant factor impact-
ing peoples' health and
property values.
Q: What's your campaign
strategy?
A: I'm not planning on
accepting money from any-
one who does business in
North Palm Beach. I don't
want to have an image of
impropriety.
Q: \`hat experience do
you bring to the table?
A: I've sat on the con-
struction oversight review
committee for six to seven
ears for the Palm Beach
County School Board.
Al business 'is afftive in
community outreach. I do a
lot of engineer pro-bono
work for philanthropic
agencies, such as JAY Min-
istries in Riviera Beach and

ly been asked to help with
Lake Park Baptist Church.

cil meetings.

North Palm Beach resi-
dent since 1990; first time
running for council.

Q: Why are you running
for council?
A: A number of gentle-
men have come to me and
asked me to do it.
Essentially, the thing that
got me interested is, there's
been so much controversy
in Palm Beach County, Riv-
iera Beach and West Palm
Beach over the public's
money not being used
effectively, or in some
instances, for wrong pur-
poses. That's not to say we
have that going on in North
Palm Beach, but I've heard
enough examples to
become concerned.
Q: What are your goals if
elected?
A: I would like to see
much more of a business
approach when it comes to
projects in the Village.
For example, in regard to


?


FREE Consultations! Reasonable Aims! Visit us at. (1) IVIV. Skirt Ca O'cSoIll tionsill c. coll,


the golf course, there's con-
cern the Village entered into
that agreement without
thinking through the finan-
cials. It doesn't look like the
current revenues are going
to help pay the mortgage
payments, but that can turn
around. There's real con-
cern in the community
about the financial liability
of the course. The course
design was done without
going out to bid, because
Mr. Nicklaus promised to
do it free of charge.
With any project of any
magnitude, there should be
a forensic accounting fore-
cast done. Projects should
not just be taken at face
value, but the Village should
have an outside perspective
on it.
I would also like to see a
stronger purchasing rou-
tine. In the past, payments
have been made without
procedures as to who signs
the checks.
There should be a more
formalized ethics panel.
. Gov. Charlie Crist is taking
the initiative to do that with
the state, and it should be
done at the county and
municipal levels. Before
anything gets out of hand, I
think we need an ethics
program. If you sell proper-
ty to a builder, be careful if
he promises landscape for
the Village hall. I think a
simple, straightforward
ethics program should
make sense. The govern-
ment, on all levels, is trying
to get away from this pay-
to-play way of doing things.
For example, West Palm
Beach Mayor Lois Frankel
has $500,000 from builders,
developers and other busi-
nesses in her campaign
fund. I think it's a wrong
idea. I don't think it belongs
in a small community like
North Palm Beach.
There needs to be careful
review of projects before
they're started.
Q: What's your campaign
strategy?
A: I'm not accepting any
donations. I'm doing my
campaign completely out of
my pocket. I'm doing all-the
conventional things, lawn
signs, forums where people
can talk about their con-
cerns. It's a small village, so
I'll probably go door-to-
door.
Q: What experience do
you bring to the table?
A: As a retiree in Florida,
I've become active in boat-
ing activities and I am a
member of the Palm Beach
Power Squadron, which
teaches boating safety to
new boaters. The North
Palm Beach unit teaches
about 600 people a year. I've
been teaching Sea Scouts,
which is the water group of
the Boy Scouts.
I've taught in a high
school as a mentor for kids
who are scholastically chal-
lenged.
In Seattle, Wash., I was on
the board of Vancouver
Memorial Hospital. I was
also on the boards of Junior
Achievement and Colum-
bia Pacific Council of
Scouts. I was involved with
the Explorer program in
Oregon and Washington,
which is the senior Scouting
program. I started the
nature experience program,
Swhichincluded rafting and
offshore sailing. It taught
the Scouts how to navigate.

patients is important to
them, and that's why the
doctors also answer the
phone at Advanced Mental
Health Care.
They found that by talking
with patients during their
residencies that they didn't
like it when a secretary
answered the phone at a
doctor's office, said Dr. De
Luca.
Which doctor a patient
should speak with depends
on the topic of conversa-
tion. While the practice
treats pediatric to geriatric
patients with various men-
tal health disorders, each
doctor has a specialty.
"It's like a team approach
to each patient," said Dr. De
Luca, who specializes in
women's mental health,
especially in terms of preg-
nancy, postpartum depres-
sion, menopause and peri-
menopause.
"Dr. Tendler is the only
psychiatrist board-certified
in behavioral sleep medi-
cine," said Dr. De Luca.
Dr. LaSalle-Ricci's expert-
ise covers obsessive-com-
pulsive disorders and
hoarding, a disorder in
which people keep accu-
mulating items and will not
get rid of them. The number
of items and its effect can
interfere with a hoarder's
job or house and can make
them feel embarrassed
about having people over,
which in turn isolates them
on social levels, said Dr.
LaSalle-Ricci.
Dr. Rubin specializes in
treating children with defi-
ant behavior. -
The doctors at Advanced
Mental Health Care also
recently began partnering
with Space of Mind, a pro-
fessional organizing com-
pany based in South Flori-
da, to help treat patients
with attention deficit hyper-
activity disorder.
Their range of specialties
plus their contemporary
approach to treatment have
the phones ringing off the
hook now, but that was not
the case in the beginning.
Getting patty "ts was the,
hardest part oi .airting the
practice, said Dr. De Luca.
"We didn't really know
anyone here, so it was
intimidating, but we placed
ads and met with doctors in
the area. Slowly, we began to
get patients and more and

Which of These Costly Homeseller

Mistakes Will You Make


When You Sell Your Home?


PALMI BEACH GARDENS -Anew
report has just been released which
reveals 7 costly mistakes that most
homeowners make when selling their
home, and a 9 Step System that can
help you sell your home fast and for the
most amount of money.
This industry report shows clearly
how the traditional ways of selling
homes have become increasingly less
and less effective in today's market. The
fact of the matter is that fully three
quarters of homesellers don't get what

will have a greater success
rate," said Mr. Richards.,
The need for a training
program was evident to
Ms. Lee after Rybovich left
inAugust.
"I don't want (business-
es) to hire people 'who
aren't qualified. We have a
lot of businesses in Riviera
Beach that have basic
entry-level positions.that
people can be trained for.
We needed a program
,that could get them to the
next level," she said.
"I think it's important
that we, as a Council,
work with the private sec-
tor and help our residents
get jobs," she added.
Ms. Lee believes when
more residents are
employed, crime and vio-
lence will decrease in the
city. She introduced the
training component to
the city council at its Feb.
.7 meeting. The program is
designed for 14 year olds
to adults, Ms. Lee said.
"If we do the program
the way I envision it, we
will use nonprofits that
already focus on teaching
overall job skills," said Ms.
Lee. One component of
the program would help.
local businesses set up job
interviews for 16 to 21
year olds.
"I'm not asking them to
hire everyone who comes
to them. I'm asking that
they give our qualified
residents a first shot at a
job," said Ms. Lee.
With the right skills,
some residents could
interview at Rybovich.
"Rybovich has a sincere
preference and desire to
hire local individuals,"
said Mr. Richards.
The program does not
have a launch date yet.

Celebrating great Danish cuisine


BY JANET SICHEL
Dining review crew

JUPITER The taste of
Copenhagen, as translated
by a native Floridian, is
delighting diners at a Scan-
danavian-inspired caf6 that
features food from the Dan-
ish palate to nourish body
and spirit.
Educated in Denmark,
owner Christian Cotton
came home after 14 years
hoping to express his affec-
tion for the culture and city
of the "little mermaid."
What better than an inti-
mate gourmet restaurant
where the owner's principle
of gastronomic success is
followed daily.
"Fresh, fresh, fresh," said
Mr. Cotton. "If the food is
fresh all other preparation
follows quite simply to cre-
ate savory dishes."
Fresh,' as in the small
flounder and ice shrimp
plucked from the frigid
Baltic Sea then immediately
processed and packed
aboard fishing boats for
direct three-day shipment to
Caf6 Copenhagen in Jupiter,
Fresh, as in the stone oven
baked muffins and royal
Dansk Danish sweet rolls
served at breakfast and
brunch.
The owner admits that his
salmon is not from northern
Europe because the best
swims in the Pacific North-
west, but his Danish herring
tops any in the states, he
said.
Because I had enjoyed din-
ner at the Copenhagen on
other occasions, I opted for

the Sunday brunch with my
friend, Cloe. Cordially greet-
ed by Mr. Cotton, we were
seated al fresco beside the
bubbling water and rock
feature in the courtyard
adjacent to the cafe in Drift-
wood Plaza. The water and
coffee appeared promptly,
served by Jana, a young
Danish woman spending
her second winter season
working at the cafe. Even
Danes like to avoid shiver-
ing, she said.
The brunch menu offered
omelets, muffins, bagels and
a smoked salmon platter
among the 11 breakfast
choices that included
French toast and Mueslix
cereal with fruit and yogurt.
Among the six sandwich
selections were the Tivoli
special, Danish pit ham


grilled with saga blue
cheese; Polser, a Danish hot:
dog; and egg, chicken and
tuna salads variously
enhanced with a bit of dill,
white asparagus, grapes and
tarragon.,
Salads were the Tivoli,
that featured, saga blue
cheese, apples, walnuts
and chicken tossed in, a'
Danish dressing; Oriental
with chicken, cashews,
chow mein and mandarin
oranges in a ginger cilantro
dressing; and a platter of
the egg, chicken and tuna
salads on a bed of greens.


Then came three eggs
Benedict options: the mer-
maid, with salmon and ice
shrimp, Danish with pit ham
and veggie with sauteed veg-
etables. All came with the
traditional hollandaise and
two poached eggs' The waf-
fle menu listed plain, blue-
berry and strawberry with
bacon, sausage or Danish
ham. Finally, came the Dan-
ish specialities of open-
faced sandwiches (smores),
that included herring,
salmon, ice shrimp with
white aspargus and

"I exhibited at Artigras
two years ago, and it was a
very enjoyable experience,
so I'm coming back," said
Ms. Cardaci. "The manage-
ment of Artigras puts on a
great show. My work is very
traditional, but last time I
was next to an artist who
worked in metal," she said.
"The artists are not com-
petitive. They share their
knowledge and experience
with each other."
In addition to art, this
year there will be a wine
tasting event on Saturday
and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.


Try three varieties for $5.
There will also be plenty
of entertainment options
all day, every day of Arti-
gras.
Another annual tradition
at Artigras is the celebrity
art auction. Major Holly-
wood stars, create their
own artwork that is sold by
silent auction. This year,
the proceeds will benefit
the Quantum House, a
place where families with
ill children can stay while
they're being treated at
nearby hospitals in West
Palm Beach.
Artigras takes place Sat-
urday, Feb. 17 through

Locals land Super Bowl gig


BY DANIEL SHUBE
Entertainment writer
JUPITER How does a
local comedian get to the
Super Bowl? When he gets
selected by
igotshotgun.com to cover
the event.
Jesse Furman of Palm
Beach Gardens and Travis
Thomas of Jupiter may not


have typical jobs. They are
two thirds of the improve
troupe, Gated Community
(Frank Licari rounds out
the group) based out of the
Atlantic Theater in Jupiter.
They also are instructors at
the Atlantic Arts Academy.
So how does that lead to
the Super Bowl? Good
question.

gun.com was created to
provide visitors an inside
look at cars, .culture and
entertainment. The site


provides a mix of profes-
sionally produced video
content and video pro-
duced by local amateurs
selected via casting calls.
"The name, igotshotgun
was derived from the
phrase used for calling out
'shotgun' to get the best
seat for the ride," said Len
Marsico, staff director for
General Motors communi-
cations department. The
site is sponsored by GM.
Two of the first selected,
to cover the Super Bowl in
Miami were Mr. Furman
and Mr. Thomas.
Subsequently, another
team was also selected to
cover the Super Bowl.
"When igotshotgun
began their search, Travis
got an e-mail," said Mr.
Furman. "We sent a video
that featured me and they
loved it. They proceeded to
hire Travis and me as a
team."
Mr. Furman said the
experience was fun.
"The best event we went
to was a General Motors
sponsored party on South
Beach. There were a slew
of National Football
League greats there, such
as Steve Young, Donovan"
McNabb, Jerome Bettis
and Michael Strahan."

From page A14


"We had a great time and
got to see the Super Bowl
(I for free," added Mr.
Thomas.
"The game was great and
we got to see Billy Joel,
Prince and Cirque du Soleil
perform," said Mr. Furman
He was also pleased to
attend his first reggae con-
cert featuring the Marley
Brothers at one of the pri-
vate parties.
The Web site features a
video piece from South
Beach that Mr. Furman and
Mr. Thomas shot. In addi-
tion, several blogs of their
daily activities leading up to
the big game are still posted.
One unique aspect of the
site is that visitors to the site
interacted with the duo,
placing comments in
response to the pair's blogs.
They now have many fans
throughout the country.
Both Mr. Furman and Mr.
Thomas told of having great
fun, but wished additional
footage would have made it
to the site. They are still hop-
ing more clips of their cre-
ative work will surface.
While Mr. Thomas does
not foresee any additional
work with this site, he felt
they learned from the expe-
rience.
"Jesse and I were excited to
do the interviews and dis-'
play our improve talents. The
experience reinforced our
need to be creative."
Mr. Furman added, "I wish
we could do something like


this again. I loved interview-
ing people."
Igotshotgun.com has
moved on to the Grammy
Awards. It also has plans to
cover the men's NCAA bas-
ketball championship, bet-
ter known as the final four.
The site was conceived as a
vehicle to promote General
Motors products in a hip,
edgy way and they found the
talent to launch it right here
in Jupiter.

ty show is scheduled for St.

The Smoke Inn in West
Palm Beach will present its
first annual Great Ameri-
can Smoke from 1 to 5 p.m.
on Saturday, Feb. 17, to
'benefit The Children's
Place at Home Safe.
Owners Abe "Ming"
Dababneh and John Den-
nehy have enlisted the aid
of musician Clarence
Clemons, of Bruce Spring-
steen's E Street Band, to
help raise $10,000.
Although Mr. Clemons is
recovering from back sur-
gery, he will make an
appearance at the event to
help The Children's Place
at Home Safe, a safe haven
for the care and treatment
of abused, abandoned,

neglected and drug-
exposed infants and chil-
dren.
"Clarence has been a
friend and a locker mem-
ber of our store for years,"
Mr. Dababneh said. "He
has a home in the area and
is able to be here for this
charity. We're very happy
.to help."
Only 1, 000 tickets will be
sold to the event, which
features drinks, fine food
from "Chef Richard," the
Smoke Inn's caterer; deli-
cacies from John Bull Eng-
lish Pub; a variety of beer,
wine and spirits; ice cream
from Cold Stone Creamery
and breads from Panera.
Guests will each receive


a souvenir duffle bag with
gift items, a program guide
and coupons to be
redeemed at cigar manu-
facturers' booths for free
cigars.
Mr. Dababneh said the
cigars alone have a value
of $275.
Tickets for the event are
$125 in advance and $150
at the door, if tickets
remain. The Smoke Inn is
located at 810 Village Blvd.,
in West Palm Beach.
Tickets can purchased by
calling, (888) SMOKES-1,
or online, www.the
greatsmoke.com. For
information, call (561)
721-2383.

frikedeller (Danish meat-
balls) with red cabbage and
cucumber salad all on a
variety of breads.
All this was a cultural romp
that led me to the generous
mermaid Benedict of
shrimp and smoked salmon
floating atop the subtly fla-
vored hollandaise and
warm, perfectly poached
eggs, yolk soft-cooked, sur-
rounded by firm whites.
(poached eggs should be
firm, not wimpy).


Cloe chose the blueberry
waffle and sausage, large
plate size, which was
crunchy outside, soft and
light inside.
"I've never been disap-
pointed eating here," she
said. This waffle was no
exception.
Mr. Cotton passed diners a
platter of royal Dansk dan-
ishes that were decadently
butter-flaky and ableskivers,
little round donut hole size
pancakes, spiced with car-


damom and served with
imported strawberry jam.
The sun was climbing
higher and diners were
quickly filling the 30 out-
door tables. Sidney Dana
and his wife, Syracuse, N.Y.,
retirees living in Eastpointe
in Palm Beach Gardens,
were seated nearby. They
confessed to an every Sun-
day breakfast ritual at the
Copenhagen.
'Aren't those ableskivers
delicious?" Mr. Dana asked.
"I bought a special gadget to
make them, but mine are
just not the same."
Our meal ended with a
review of Mr. Cotton's three-
year gourmet restaurant
adventure.
Prior to opening the cafe,
he was a food purchaser for
area country clubs. During
that period, his knowledge
of Danish food was
enhanced, as he learned to
find reasonably priced,
quality products. Fresh fish
dishes top the menu as a
result. Modestly priced
wines from California,
Washington state and
France, along with imported
beers and Voss sparkling
water, all make for tempting
beverage offerings.
"I am proud that I have
employees who understand
my vision of this restaurant,
he said. "We want to touch
and nourish people. We
want them to feel not just
full, but fulfilled when they
leave this place."
It is, after all, a dining
experience and delicious
passport to Denmark. And
about that little mermaid.
The Copenhagen has such a
statue, but it no longer sits in
the water in the courtyard
pool. She was deemed inap-
propriate for family viewing,
even when wearing a T-
shirt.
Brunch menu prices
range from $2.70 for a bagel
to $18 for the Danish sand-
wich platter. Lunches
include homemade soups,
hot and cold sandwiches,
salads, omelettes and Dan-
ish sandwich platters and
range from $3.50 to $18.
The dinner menu offers 13
entrees from $20 to $29, and
features the pan-fried Baltic
Sea flounder topped with
remoulade, ice shrimp and
white asparagus. Appetizers
include herring, shrimp and
salmon at $7 to $10 and sal-
ads.
Glasses of wine range
from $7.50 to $9 for red, $6
to $12 for white and blush
and champagne splits are
$9 or $19, bottles range
from $21 to $65. Beers are
$3.50 to $5.
Located at 2123 S. U.S.
Highway 1, Cafe Copen-
hagen is open from 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. daily, and 4:30 to 9
p.m. Tuesday through Satur-
day. For takeout and reser-
vations, call (561) 748-0495.

Welcome

tothe

computer

world

SA Tel, youfinally did
it. After months,
V Even weeks, of
planning, you finally took
the plunge.
After hours of researching
magazines, the Internet, the
opinion of friends, con-
sumer reports, etc. you
finally settled on and
bought your first computer.
You've just opened a door
into a whole new reality that
only the computer-literate
seem unfazed by. Welcome
aboard.
So now what?
You got your new
machine home, out of the
box and plugged into the
wall. Now what do you do?
All those magazines and
consumer reports don't tell
you what you are going to
do with your new machine,
theyjust tell you which ones
they think are better. Why
are you getting a computer
in the first place? What do,
you need a computer for?
What are you going to do
with it?
If you are a new computer'
owner (that is, you've never
owned a computer before
in your life), there are a few
thirins that you ought to
know right off the bat, the
kind of things that no one
told you about when you
were shopping for your
machine, such as howto do
the basic things people
want to do with their
machines such as sending
and receiving e-mail, typing
letters, "downloading" and
going on the Internet.
You've heard about these
things a thousand times,
but what does it all really
mean?

Try slow cooking while

winter is still here


low cooking is the
name of the game for
this week's feature.
This basic approach
leaves you with a soft,
melt-in-your-mouth
quality that cannot be
matched. It's kind of
funny to think we are
almost done with winter
here in South Florida. In
fact, it might be done by
the time I finish this
recipe, so enjoy this and
any other cold weather
food while you still can.

SLOW COOKED
LAMB SHOULDER
4 1/2poundlamb
shoulder roast,
de-boned and tied
2 tablespoons canola
oil
2 carrots, large diced
2 celery ribs, large diced
2 onions, roughly
chopped
10 garlic cloves, roughly
chopped
8 sprigs fresh thyme
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
20 black peppercorns
2 cups whole, peeled
tomatoes
1 cup full-bodied
red wine "
2 quarts chicken stock
2 teaspoons mint,
chopped


First, preheat your oven
to 300 degrees. Season
the lamb generously with,
salt and pepper on all
sides.
In a large roasting pan
(with a lid) heat the oil
over medium heat and
cook the lamb until
brown on all sides, about
8 to 10 minutes. Remove
from the pan and set
aside. Add the carrots,
celery, garlic, pepper-
corns, onion and thyme
to the pan and cook for 6
to 8 minutes, stirring
frequently until they start
to brown.
Add the tomatoes,
season with salt and
pepper, and cook for 4
minutes. Add the wine
and cook for 8 minutes.
Place the lamb back in
the pan and add enough
chicken stock to come
1/3 of the way up on the
meat. Bring the liquid to
a boil, cover, put into the
oven and cook for 3 1/2 to
4 hours, until fork tender.
After the meat has
been braising for 15
minutes, check to make
sure the liquid is barely
simmering and adjust
the oven temperature if
needed.
Baste occasionally with
pan juices during the


cooking time. When the
lamb is fork tender,
remove it from the pan,
cut off the string that
tied it together, cover
loosely with foil and set
aside.
Strain the braising
liquid through a fine sieve
into a saucepan, discard
the solids and let the
liquid sit for 5 minutes.
With a ladle, skim off
the fat that rises to the
top, turn the heat back
up to medium-high and.
reduce by half (cook
about 15 minutes). By
now the sauce should be


thick and richly flavored.
You should have about 2
cups of sauce to finish
with salt and pepper.
Slice the lamb into
thick slices. Arrange it on
a serving platter and
spoon over the sauce.
The meat will be so
tender it will almost fall
apart. Pass the extra
sauce on the side and
enjoy.,

New York native Chris
Kennedy has been cooking
for 17 years in some of the
finest restaurants in the
United States, including
Luxia and the Bryant Park
Grill, both in New York
City. He perfected his skills
on steak and seafood at
the Flagler Steakhouse in
the Breakers Hotel on
Palm Beach and most
recently, was executive
chef of the Circle Dining
Room at the Breakers,
responsible for the award-
winning Sunday brunch.
Chef Kennedy still works
part-time at the Circle
Dining Room and created
his own catering business,
Seasoned Catering, in
2004.


Tips &
techniques
Root vegetables, Swiss
chard or steamed spinach
all work well with this
dish.
There are two primary
methods of slow cooking.
Braising, which is
described in this week's
feature, and long poaching
or stewing, in which the
meat is broken down after
being simmered for a long
time in a dark stock.
Montes Alpha chardonnay
from Chile is a great wine
to use in this dish and to
serve with dinner.

ss.
look The simplest way to
amine shift to positive energy
.place and remove the negative
spend is to get rid of energy-


14ov~.t\\l~~#~f~:tmO I vbnel '4



~~s~ftiLg-


drainers, such as clutter.
Clutter can' be described
as "stacks and shelves of
stuff," outdated thinking
and even negative peo-
ple.
Clutter, no matter
where it is in your home
or workplace, ,creates
stagnant negative energy
that symbolizes old
thinking, unfinished
projects and procrastina-
tion.
As soon as you remove
the clutter, new energy
can focus on things you
desire most: positive
relationships, good
health, wealth and happi-
ness. Be merciless when
removing clutter.
Rule 1. If things are not
functional, cracked, bro-
ken or do not fit, get rid
of them.
Rule 2. If you've decid-
ed to keep it, find a prop-
er place for it and keep it
in its place.
Next, evaluate your
thoughts in the same
manner. Are you still
holding onto things your
grandmother or grandfa-
ther told you when you
were a 4 year old that are
irrelevant today? Are you
constantly telling your-
self you will never suc-
ceed or you are too fat or
too old?
If yes, get rid of those as'
well. Take time with this
step, because your think-
ing clutter can really hold
you back from succeed-
ing at having an abun-
dant life filled with hope,
peace and joy. The type of
thinking you are looking
for would include:
Women can't be CEO's
or doctors.
Men can't be star ath-
letes if they are too small
or have had' an illness,
such as cancer.
You'll never get any-
where without a college
degree,
Or how about, I'm too
fat, skinny, ugly or have
the wrong ethnic back-
ground.
Your thoughts create
reality. You need to
remove the old way of
thinking and make room
for positive new energy to


enter so you can improve
your life.
Following through on
these two basic steps of
uncluttering your exter-
nal and internal environ-
ment will make a huge
difference in your life.
Once you remove the
clutter and its stagnant
energy, you should have
ample room for new
energy to help you create
a world of calm without
chaos, or productivity
without conflict.
Feng shui is the unclut-
tering of your world, the
placement of energy
enhancements and the
successful use of positive
energy flow to improve
your life so you have a
better world to live in and
enjoy more.
Even though there are
many additional feng
shui tools to use, you
must get rid of the nega-
tive energy drainers first
to make room for the
new.
Shifting to new, posi-
tive energy can be both
exciting and challenging.
Some results can be
immediate, others take
time. However, you will
quickly notice a very dif-
ferent uplifting, encour-
aging energy flowing in
your world.
Whether you are look-
ing to improve your
health, relationships,
income or overall well-
being, feng shui really
works. I encourage you to
try it. E-mail me if you
have any questions.

Team players listen


to each other


Q : I like to do
special things for
my wife to make
he ppy, but nothing I
do ever seems to make a
difference. I bring her
flowers, and she says,
"Don't waste our money,
we have bills to pay." I
ask her to spend time
with me out on a date
and she says we don't
have enough time with
the kids as a family and
she'd rather take the kids
along.
Granted, we both work
full-time so there really
isn't much time for
anything that is fun. Our
lives have become task
oriented, scheduled and
dull.
When I ask her what
she would like me to do
to make her happy she
says, help around the
house, empty the dish-
washer, etc. None of
these things are very
romantic to me. She
never seems to take time
to just be together. She's
always busy with the kids
and the house and I feel
left out.
What should I do?

A: One thing you can
do is to listen to her
request about what
would make-her happy.
She is telling you that she
needs help around the
house. Try to sit down
with her and make a list
of household tasks that
need to be done on a
daily, weekly and month-
S ly basis. Assign the tasks
fairly between the two of
you, and involve the kids


i i
I'A ^ '

.4*TI^


JANET HIBEL
Ask the marriage counselor

with chores if they are
old enough.
Since you both work,
you need to be an equal
partnership to take care
of the home and the
children.
Nothing breeds resent-
ment more than feeling
taken for granted.
If she feels you expect
her to be in charge of the
house and children, and
you "help her" when you
can, rather than being a
true team player, she
may be building up
animosity toward you.
Try talking this over and
coming to an agreement
you plan to keep.
'Having a total, every-
day investment in the
marital partnership
sends her the message
that she is respected,
loved and important.
This will also free up, her
time to spend on more
enjoyable activities. She
may be missing time for
self-care, such as getting
her hair done or exercis-
ing, which breeds resent-
ment and distancing.
The time you gain by
working with her in the


home also can be allotted
to date time and alone
time together.
However, if all this is
accomplished and she
still seems unhappy, you
may wish to discuss how
she feels when she
spends alone time with
you.
Does she feel she gets
to choose what you do on
dates, and even if what
she chooses is something
you don't care for, you go
along graciously and
manage to have fun? Or
does she feel she has to
choose something you
like or you will complain
or make fun of it?
Do you focus on her
feelings, observations
and perspectives when
you are out together, or
do you hog the conversa-
tion? Do you judge her
emotions, telling her that
she "shouldn't feel that
way" at times?
Look deeply into the
interaction between the
two of you to see if there
are ways you can deepen
your connection by
focusing closely on the
mind, heart and soul of
each other.
Try this as best you
can.

Living a chain-free, pain-free life


Editor's note: This is the
second of a two-part
series.

Last week's Spirit
Guide column was
about answering
two of the four most
important questions I
heard from my clients
and readers in January at
the South Florida Fair.
The questions were:
how can I free the chains
that bind me and how
can I live a pain-free life?
Today's column is about
answering the third and
fourth, how can I grow
spiritually and how can I
find lasting happiness?
The first step in grow-
ing spiritually is to learn
from the past. Bless it for
what it taught us, forgive
it instead of judging it,
release it, move on and
grow a new and better
life. This leads to the
fourth question, how can
I find lasting happiness?
We each have a unique
set of thoughts, feelings,
ideas and appetites living
inside us. No two people
are exactly alike. You are
one of a kind in all of
creation. One of the keys
to happiness after we
begin to find our true self
is to associate with
others who are similar or
compatible with our
nature.
If you hang out with
people who are oppo-
sites, it usually leads to
war, trouble or control.
Stop the war, for univer-
sal sake. It only leads to
destruction.
True and lasting happi-
ness is only possible
when we use our natural
gifts and talents and do
what we truly love.
How happy are you? If


you aren't, don't 1

Beware of the phony'Monroney' on car sticker prices


Phony Monroney"
should not be con-
fused with the song
"Boney Maroney" (Igot a
gal named Boney Maroney.
She's skinny as a stick of
macaroni).
That song was first
recorded by Larry Williams
during my high school
years, 1956-58. You will
appreciate this lame
attempt at humor only if
you are about my age, 66.
The Monroney label is
the window sticker that is
mandated by federal law
to be affixed to every new
vehicle sold in the United
States up until the time the
new owner takes delivery.
The name Monroney
derives from Sen. Michael
Monroney's law passed by
Congress in 1958. Prior to
the proposal of this bill,
there was often a large
discrepancy between the
showroom price and the
actual price of a new
vehicle.
The fact was, existing
price tags did not tell the
full story. Most customer-
quoted prices were for
"stripped-down" models
and did not include
additions for preparation
charges, freight charges,
federal, state, and local
taxes or optional factory-
installed equipment
requested by the purchas-
er.
These hidden charges
were used by some dealers
to increase the selling
price while giving the new
vehicle buyer an inflated
idea of their trade-in
allowance. This price
confusion led to a slump
in auto sales during the
early 1950s.
Sen. Monroney's bill was
designed to prevent the
abuse of the new vehicle
list prices, but would not
prevent dealers and buyers
from bargaining over


EARL STEWART
On Cars

vehicle prices.
Well, as you might
expect, car dealers have
figured out a way to evade
this very good law. An
alarmingly large number
of Florida dealers use a
label that is designed to
look almost identical to
the official Monroney
label. It has the same
coloring, fonts, type size
and layout. This "phony
Monroney" is affixed right
next to the genuine article.
Unless you really look
close and read all of the
fine print, you will have no
idea that you are looking at
a counterfeit Monroney
label.
This phony Monroney
includes extra charges to
artificially inflate the
manufacturer's suggested
list price.
One of the most egre-
gious of these charges is an
addition of pure markup
just for profit, which has a
variety of names. Some of
these are "market adjust-
ment," "additional dealer
markup," "adjusted market
value," "ADM," "market
adjustment addendum"
and "market value adjust-
ment."
This is simply an
amount that the dealer
adds to the manufacturer's
suggested retail price. It is
virtually always used in


high-demand, low supply
cars. I have seen these
labels with charges as
much as $10,000 added to
the MSRP. Additions of
$1,500 to $3,995 are
common.
Dealers also use the
counterfeit labels to price
dealer-installed acces-
sories, which are OK, so
long as the accessories are
not marked up higher than
the manufacturer marks
them up.
When customers con-
fuse the phony Monroney
with the real one, it
distorts their point of
reference for comparing
prices between different
dealerships.
One manufacturer's
Monroney labels are
consistent. A 2007 Honda
Accord with the same
factory accessories will
have the same MSRP at
every Honda dealership
you visit. But if dealers fool
you into thinking their
label is part of the Mon-
roney, you are not com-
paring "apples with
apples."
This can adversely affect
a good buying decision in
a number of ways.
Some buyers focus


mainly on how big a trade-
in allowance they can get
for their old car. If one
dealer has the same car
marked up $3,000 more
than another dealer, he
can offer you $3,000 more
for your tiade and still
make the same profit as-
the other dealer. Some
buyers focus on how big a

discount they get from
"sticker." It's easy to give a
higher discount if you
have artificially inflated
the MSRP by thousands of
dollars.
My advice is to carefully
inspect the sticker on the
new car you are contem-
plate buying. Read it
completely and especially

Sdence of Vein Care" -

the fine print. If there is a
second label on the car,'it
is possible that it is fair.
This would be for purpos-
es of adding an item
installed by the dealer,
such as floor mats or
stripes, priced the same as
the manufacturer charges.

Those unattractive bulging blue veins in your legs are brought
about by a decreased blood flow caused by abnormal pressure,

varicose veins for cosmetic reasons alone. Nothing could be further

Try foster pet before taking the plunge


You and Your Pet


with Birgit Edler


If you are considering
getting a pet, a foster
program could be a
great way to find out if your
lifestyle is suitable for one.
A few weeks of your time
could mean a lifetime for a
pet.
One way to find out if a
dog or cat will be perfect in
your life is to foster a pet
from a shelter for a few
weeks. Most shelters
always need foster parents.
A foster program is
designed to care for cats
and dogs that do not
initially meet adoption
criteria. At the end of a
foster care period, the


animal is placed for
adoption. Most of these
animals need special care
for awhile. It could be a dog
that is heartworm positive
or a cat that has kittens.
Foster periods vary in
length, depending on the
animal's condition and
treatment. Most shelters
will provide food, medical
treatments and all the
medications.required for
each foster animal. What a
great way to find out how a
pet fits into your daily
activities.
You should not be
discouraged because these
animals have medical


conditions. That is also part
of taking care of a pet. If
you adopt or purchase a
pet, it might become ill one
day, so you will know the
importance and commit-
ment coming your way if
you decide to get a pet.
If youare interested in
foster care and already
have a pet, you need to
know if it is up-to-date on
vaccinations..
All members of your
household must fully,
understand the responsi-
bilities associated with
fostering an animal.
Please give a shelter dog
or cat a chance by foster-


ing. You will have done a
great thing and been
helped to decide if you can
take care of a pet for 10 to
15 years. Who knows, you
might end up keeping the
pet.
To find out more about a
pet foster program, contact
the Peggy Adams Rescue
League at (561) 686-3663.
Birgit Edler is the owner
of Canine College in Juno
Beach, which offers groom-
ing, training and day care
services for dogs and cats.

be when you bring home
your new computer. There is
a lot of excitement as the
machine is plugged in for
the first time. Then, when
you throw the switch and
turn it on, your journey
begins.
You may be brought
through a menu where you
have to fill out some infor-
mation about yourself and
you may have to enter an
authorization code, but
before too long, you will
make it to the Windows
desktop, where all the magic
happens.
The Windows desktop is
the first place you will see
every time your machine
wakes up and stabilizes. You
can tell when the machine is
fully awake because the little
hourglass will go away and
the hard drive will stop
"chugging."
You can recognize the
Windows desktop by the
presence of a "start" button
on the lower left comer-of
the screen and the presence
of icons, such as "my
computer," "my docu-


ments" and "recycle bin."
Take a look around.
Click the "start" button
and a menu will open that
will lead to more options.
Move your mouse up the
menu and you will see
different program groups
expand as you pass your
mouse over them. This is
where you can find all the
controls that make your
new machine do the things
you need it to do.
Hold your mouse over the
"programs" program group
and you will be able to see
all of the programs that are
already installed on your
machine.
Programs are like tools
and the "programs group" is
like a giant toolbox. Each
one of the programs listed in
the programs group is a tool
specifically tailored for a
specific task and, like most
tool boxes, it is OK to have
two or more of the same
kind of program.
Glance down the list of
programs and get acquaint-
ed with the tools in your
toolbox. This is where you


will be going to launch the
programs you will need to
be productive with your
computer.
Some of the programs you
may find are helpful for
typing letters such as Word,
Works, Word perfect and
Word Pad.
Programs such as Internet
Explorer or Fire Fox are for
"surfing the 'net" and tools
such as "Outlook Express" or
"Eudora" are designed to
handle e-mail and news-
groups.
Get familiar with what
programs are installed on
your new machine and take
a little time to get familiar
with how they work. Most
people will try to learn
"Windows." I've always
counseled people not to
worry aboutWindows.
Instead, focus on learning
the programs installed in
Windows.
After spending some time
exploring the programs
installed on your new
machine, it's time to have

YOUTHACIVITIES & SPORTS


Gardens

girls go


deep into

playoffs


BY KEVIN CROCILLA
Sports writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS The Palm Beach
Gardens girls basketball
team is looking to go
deep into the playoffs
again.
The Lady Gators are
following suit from last-
year, when they got all
the way to the class 6A
regional finals, only to
lose to South Broward by
five points.
This season, they won
the district 9-6A title and
beat Lake Worth, 59-45
last Wednesday in the
first round of the regional
playoffs.
The game was close
until about midway
through the third quarter
when Gardens started to
pull away. After being
down 27-23 at halftime,
the Gators went on a 16-0
run in the third quarter.
Going into the fourth,
they led the Trojans, 45-
34.,
The Gators wore down
the Trojans with pressure
defense and killed them
on the boards. Gardens
also got points from
seemingly everyone on
the court.
Center Kagan Baptiste
led the Gators with 13
points. Baptiste has been
pne of the main figure-
heads on the team since
last year, and is one of
four seniors leading the
way this year. She is a
dominant presence in
the middle on offense
and a strong rebounder,
as well.
The Gators next highest
scorer was Carrie Harris,
who had 11 points. Lake
Worth's high scorer, Fan-
isha Joisson, stood out
from her teammates by
scoring 18 points.
In high school girls
basketball, the high scor-
er's stats usually hover
around the 18-25 range,
but this doesn't hold true
for Gardens. Everyone
takes what they get.
Everyone passes. Gar-
dens is definitely among
the best in the area when

it comes to sharing the
ball. No one player goes
out of her way to actually
be "the scorer."
"Well, we talk a lot
about team ball. We play
as a team. We preach that
over and over," head
coach Charlie Reppel
said.
"We rely on our seniors
a lot for leadership:
Genesa Edwards, Carrie
Harris, Kagan Baptiste
and Shay Harris."
Whether these players
can lead Gardens to a
state title remains to be
seen.
Gardens still has to face
Pompano Beach-Ely and
rival Palm Beach Lakes
before they reach the
finals.

N by Maria &Yanni
'SALON
BRINGING VIBRANC(
TO LIFELESS HAIR
As beautiful and vibrant as hair can
look, it is essentially dead the
second it emerges from the scalp.
Thus, it has no way to renew itself.
Even if you treat your hair well, all
the brushing, blow-drying, dyeing,
and washing eventually take a toll
on hair that can be a couple of years
old by the time hair reaches
shoulder-length. In addition, the
general health of our bodies is
reflected in our hair. So, aside from
regularly conditioning hair and
massaging your scalp, you may
want to be sure you are consuming
a healthy diet. Because hair is
protein, a diet low in protein may
slow hair growth. A well-rounded,
nuinent-rich diet will improve the
condition of your hair.
A healthy diet is good for your
general health and also for the
appearance of your hair. At
JONATHAN T SALON, we provide
all the services you need to keep
your hair looking healthy and
vibrant. Haircuts include a
.shampoo, conditioning, precision
cut, and blow dry. Stylists also
provide tips on how to care for your
hair between visits. While you're
here, treat yourself to a manicure
and pedicure. Call us at (561) 626-
1829 to schedule an appointment.
We are located at 4517 PGA Blvd.
Business hours are Mon., .10-4;
Tues., Wed., Thur., 9-9; and Fri. and
Sat., 9-5. HINT: It also helps your
hair if you eat foods that are rich in
vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well
as foods rich in essential fatty acids.

It's always clubface first, path second


Golf's common cold,
the slice, has been
the bane of most
average golfers' struggle
with this great game.
The remedies for this
sickness are many and
varied. Usually, the cure
for this disease does more
harm than good and the
solution, once understood,
is a lot easier than most
golfers realize.
The cause of a slice is
not the result of cutting
across the ball as com-
monly thought. The root
cause of all slices is an
open clubface at impact.
An open clubface makes
the ball go to the right.
Cutting across the line is a
last ditch effort to start the
ball to the left to compen-


sate for the impending .,,,
slice. Fix the open clubface
problem and you won't
have to come over the top.
If you cut across the ball
with a square clubface,
you'll pull the ball severely
to the left. Once you lose
the fear of losing it to the
right, you can now work,
on hthe correct path. It's
clubface first, path second.
Always.,
Holw do you fix 'the open
clubface problem? Let's go
to work.
First of all, checkyour
hand placement on the ,
club. especially your left
hand.'Let your left arm
hang naturally at your side
and notice how'your hand
faces inward toward your.

on your body.
The right hand goes on,
in a "shake hands!' posi-
tion, right thumb slightly
to the left side of the
handle. We want a firm
hold, not a tight grip.
Holding the club lightly
will allow the arms the
freedom needed to s\\ing
the club in such a \w\ay as
to permit the toe of the
club to rotate properly
through impact and
beyond.
A good way to develop
this rotation is to make
baseball type springs at'
waist high level to the
ground. Notice how
naturally the arms rotate
to the right on the back
swing, and how they rotate

This is due to the club's;

As you achieve some
good results at this level,
try a slightly larger swing
with maybe a 7 iron.
Gradually work up to
longer clubs, feeling the
release each and every
time. With steady practice,
you should eliminate your
slice and say hello to a
draw.

some fun.
Click "start," "programs"
and "games." Don't ignore
the games as just "frivolous'
time-wasters." Use the
games that are already
installed on your machine
as tools to familiarize
yourself how to interact
with your machine. You'll
quickly find that once you
master a program such as
Solitaire, you will also have
mastered things, such
as"clicking and double
clicking," "dragging and
dropping" and have gained


exposure to common
program features such as
"pull down menus." Games
allowyou to learn howto
interact with your machine
without the pressure of
having to produce anything
while you learn.
I wish you the best of luck
and welcome you to the
never ceasing world of
computers.

If that second label
includes a markup over
MSRP for no reason other
than profit for the dealer,
make sure you adjust for
that number in your
comparisons for discounts
and trade-in allowance.
Some dealers also add a
second markup to these
labels and that is the
infamous "dealer fee" also
sometimes called "doc fee"
and "dealer prep."
Some dealers do not put
this on the phony Mon-


roney but print it on their
buyer's orders and program
it into their computers.
