City memorializes fallen youth


BY IZzY KAPNICK
Staff writer


PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS The city of Palm
Beach Gardens is dedi-
cating a new stadium to
an 18 year-old Palm
Beach Gardens resident
killed last July in a grisly
murder that shook the
community.
Groundbreaking for the


Amanda Buckley stadium
took place Saturday, Nov.
17 at 10 a.m. at Plant
Drive Park in Palm Beach
Gardens, off Holly Drive.
A ceremony honoring Ms.
Buckley followed.
The concept for the sta-
dium started about a
week after Ms. Buckley's
death, when city officials
approached her family


about ideas to honor her
memory. Ms. Buckley was
a standout softball player
for the Palm Beach Gar-
dens Lady Gators. She
graduated this year and
was on her way to St. Leo
University to play college
softball.
Tory Buckley, Amanda's
dad, headed the Youth
Athletic Association, so


city officials were familiar
with his work within the
community.
Mr. Buckley and city
officials decided to build
the stadium in her honor,
and establish a charitable
foundation, the Amanda
Buckley Give a Smile to a
Child Foundation, to
raise donations for fami-

Local nonprofit hosts toy drive

Event brought business community together for a cause


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GARDENS
- A local nonprofit busi-
ness is building a reputa-
tion for supporting local
business and promoting
charity events.
CityHost411 recently
hosted a toy drive and
fundraiser at Aqua Grill at
Legdcy Place on PGA
Boulevard. The event ben-


efited the Holding Hands
Foundation, a nonprofit
group aiming to support
local families in need.
CityHost411.com is a
Web site that provides
Internet users with local
information about events,
businesses and services in
Palm Beach Gardens. The
site's founder, Shawn
Verne, pitched his idea to
city officials and found an
eager participant.
"(CityHost411.com) will


really pinpoint anything
you need in Gardens, from
where to get authentic cui-
sine, to finding a pharmacy
close to you," said Donna
Giuliana, Palm Beach Gar-
dens public relations
director.
The Web site, which is
built on an interactive,
user-friendly interface,
even includes a "virtual
city host," a digital
concierge who' pops up
onscreen to help guide site


visitors through Palm
Beach Gardens.
Describing the nonprofit
organization, Tom Giu-
liana, the emcee for the
night's event, called it "the
new progressive business
networking organization."
The backdrop for last
Wednesday's charity was

Pill


arrests in

Gardens

hit high

BY DIZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS Arrests for illegal
possession of prescription
drugs spiked last month.
In October, Palm Beach
Gardens Police appre-
hended nine suspects
with pills on their person
without a prescription.
This represented the high-
est number of monthly
arrests for prescription
drug abuse for 2007.
Since the beginning of
2007, Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office records
indicate that there have
been 56 arrests for posses-
sion of prescription pills
in Palm Beach Gardens,
ranging from possession
of alprazolam (Xanax) to
oxycodone (Percocet,
OxyContin and Roxicet).
The arrest rate averages
four to five per month.
In 2007, West Palm
Beach Police arrested 24
fewer suspects on the
same count, despite hav-
ing nearly twice the popu-
lation of Palm Beach Gar-
dens. When asked if this
discrepancy suggests that
there are more users in
Palm Beach Gardens,
Palm Beach Gardens
Police declined comment.
Other spikes in these
types of arrests have.
occurred throughout the
year.
In April, Gardens police
arrested and charged
seven suspects for illegal
possession of prescription
pills, including Albert
Skiba of West Palm Beach,
who had 69 Xanax pills in
his possession, police
reports showed.
According to Sheriff's
Office records, Mr. Skiba
was apprehended while
attempting a car burglary.
At press time, records
confirmed at least four
arrests since October for
OxyContin or Roxicet,
compared to, only one
reported arrest for these

Running for


a reason

Marathon participant raises funds


for nonprofit
BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH
- Redefining reality is
what 26.2 miles is worth
to Kacey Lake.
Ms. Lake, a Delray
Beach resident, is a com-
mittee member of the
Alliance for Eating Disor-
ders Awareness of North
Palm Beach. She will
donate the money she
raises from running in
the Palm Beach
Marathon on Dec. 2 to
the alliance, which
informs and educates
the public about eating
disorders and helps
those suffering with
them.


The money Ms. Lake
raises will go toward a
new effort: a Web site
challenging women to
"redefine reality."
"I think self-esteem is
one of the biggest
(issues) that females
struggle with. Girls (and)
women are surrounded
everyday with sugges-
tions that they're not
good enough, (and) this
organization seeks to
empower females to be
themselves. Nothing is
more beautiful or power-
ful than a woman who
loves herself," said Ms.
Lake, 24.

Charity event brings flavor to Gardens

Staff writer
-PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Palm Beach Gardens resi-
dents had a chance to sam-
ple the menus at local
restaurants last Wednesday
at the "Taste of the Palm
Beaches" festival on PGA
Boulevard, just west of Mili-
taryTrail.
Hundreds of hungry resi-
dents turned out to whet
their palettes at PGA Com-
mons, sampling foods from
a huge variety of restau-
rants, from Spoto's Oyster
Bar to David's East Side Deli.
"It's a great way to get
together with friends, meet
new people and enjoy the
wonderful food we have
here in Palm Beach Gar-
dens," said Kate Buettin, a
Palm Beach Gardens resi-
dent.
Patrons paid $25 to take
part in the annual food fest.


They wore glowing green
necklaces to signify to
restaurants and kiosks that
they had paid.
All of the proceeds went to
The Big Heart Brigade, a
nonprofit organization that
provides Thanksgiving
meals for needy families.
Organizers estimate that
the "Taste of the Palm
Beaches" will help the chari-
ty serve more than 40,000
holiday meals to financially-
challenged families this sea-
son.
After paying the admis-
sion fee, patrons were free to
stroll the 1-mile stretch of
delis, bistros and kiosks. A
jazz flutist helped provide
some ambiance to the
scene, while guests smoked
cigars outside the Sabor
Havana smoking cafe.
F Guests were hard-pressed
to single out a favorite
restaurant. Some favorites
included Vic and Angelo's


"It was outstanding. Its so nice to do some-
thing for families in need.'


Ellen Daly
General manager, co-owner Spoto's Oyster Bar


Coal Oven, Spoto's and
Bagel Boyz. The event gave
these businesses the oppor-
tunity to showcase their fla-
vors to those who weren't
familiar with their business.'
"What a huge success. (It
was) great exposure. A lot of
people who had heard
about us, and thought we
were just a bagel shop, got a
chance to try our cheese
steaks," said Pat O'Brien, co-
owner of Bagel Boyz.
Spoto's offered one of its
signature seafood dishes:
shrimp gumbo.
Ellen Daly, general man-
ager and co-owner of the
restaurant, was pleased to


participate in the charity.
"It was outstanding. It's so
nice to do something for
families in need," she said.
According to the Big Heart
Brigade Web sitethe organi-
zation has served more than
100,000 Thanksgiving meals
to families over the past
three years.
As the night wound down
at PGA Commons, the smell
of lamb chops and cigar
smoke retreated, and free
shuttles brought the guests
back from the event.
SOver- -the quiet growl of
small talk, one guest
exclaimed. "That bread pud-
ding was amazing."

School supports Leukemia Society
Students at Bright Futures International and Acade-
my for International Studies in North Palm Beach
dressed down for a cause on Nov. 15.
The students at the K-8 school paid $1 to wear
casual clothes to school instead of their uniforms.
Money raised was given to the Leukemia and Lym-
phoma Society, which has a chapter in Palm Beach
Gardens. The society funds blood cancer research,
education and patient services. Its mission is to cure
leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myelo-
ma.
This was the first year the school raised money for
the society.
"The reason we started it is one of our students in
second grade lost her brother to leukemia," said Mar-
sia Tucci, assistant principal.
The student's mother, Ruthie Bunkleman, asked if
the school would do something to help the Leukemia
Society, and the school was happy to oblige, she said.
"We want to encourage the kids to look beyond
themselves and help the community," said Ms. Tucci.
The school has 375 students, and the majority par-
ticipated. They raised $325 for the society.

Snow falls in Florida park
Twenty tons of fake snow fell on John D. MacArthur
Beach State Park during its Blizzard at the Beach
event on Nov. 18.
The event was the first of its kind for the park, and it
was done as a fundraising effort.
"We (did) this because we're kicking off a capital
campaign to raise money for new education and wel-
come centers," said Cheryl Houghtelin, director of
community relations for the Friends of MacArthur
Park.
The park works with students in kindergarten
through fourth grade who attend Palm Beach County
Schools. More than 100,000 visitors come to the park
each year, she said.
There is not enough room to accommodate all of
them at the current centers, said Ms. Houghtelin.
The capital campaign, started in 2006, raised close
to $1.3 million internally. The goal is $2 million, she
said.
"The idea is to raise the rest of the funds and break
ground in October 2008," said Ms. Houghtelin.
Other than snow, guests were treated to live blue-
grass music, face painting, a wildlife show, given by
representatives from Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in
Jupiter, and a visit from Santa, who showed up on one
of the North Palm Beach's fire rescue trucks.

ty concept encompasses
this idea of challenging
women to rethink the
mindset that has become
so mainstream; the mind-
set that leads so many peo-
ple to obsess and swirl into
,eating disorders:"
The concept is the
alliance's new campaign.
It came from a combina-
tion of being tired of the
unrealistic images por-
trayed by the media and
unrealistic expectations
women put on themselves
to be everything to every-
body, said Johanna Kandel,
founder. of the Alliance for
Eating Disorders Aware-
ness.
"I was tired of seeing
Britney Spears and Lind-
say Lohan be role models
to teen girls," she said.
Redefining Reality will
be a tool, 'to help women
learn to be comfortable
with themselves, by using
various facets.
For example, the Web
site will show photos of

Ms. Lake ,has been
involved with the alliance


f'or seven months. She got
involved after being
inspired by Ms. Kandel.
"The organization'
speaks to young people
anrd opens the opportunity
to make eating disorders
less shameful," she said.
"The number of individ-
uals affected by eating dis-
orders is astounding, yet
it's such a taboo topic.
When people are strug-
gling, it's often their own
shame that causes the
most pain, (and) the
,organization lets people
know they don't have to
live like that."
Shortly after she decided
to run in the Marathon of
the Palm- Beaches, she cre-
ated a Web page to 'raise
funds for the alliance as
she runs. Ms. Lake sent it
to friends and family, and
has already raised $1,001
as of Nov. 12. Even her dog,
Miister Big Shot, made a
contribution.
Her efforts have amazed
Ms. Kandel.

Kandel.
The Palm Beach
Marathon, which starts at
the intersection of S. Fla-
gler Drive and Evernia
Street in West Palm Beach,
and goes to Lake Worth
before looping back
around, will be Ms. Lake's
first full marathon, she
said.
She decided to run in the
Marathon of the Palm
Beaches after' running Ja
half-marathon in .the-
LaSalle Chicago Distance
Classic in August.
'I was a casual runner,
but hadn't run much over 6
miles EVER before! After I
finished the half-
marathon, I knew I could-
n't stop. It was such, a rush
of accomplishment that
motivated me to attempt
the full marathon. Not to
mention, I have grown to
love my long runs," said
Ms. Lake.
Ms. Lake has been
preparing for the
marathon by running


between four and 10 miles
three or four times
throughout the week and
dedicating Saturdays to
her long runs, which range
between 12 and 22 miles,
she said.
"I usually meet a friend
around 6:30 a.nf. right as
the sun is coming up. It's
gorgeous," said Ms. Lake.
She ran the half-
marathon in Chicago in
two hours and eight min-
utes, and has been averag-
ing 10-minute miles on her
runs lately, she said.
The Palm Beach
Marathon caps off at 5,000
participants and each one
will be wearing a tracking
device called a Champi-
onehip on their shoelaces,
so they will know their
official time.'

Palm Tran goes green


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

PALM BEACH COUNTY
- Palm Tran, Palm Beach
County's public transporta-
tion agency, will implement
new environmentally
friendly initiatives in the
next few months.
A nitrogen inflation sys-
tem for bus tires, funded


by a grant from the Flori-
da Department of Trans-
portation, will be com-
pleted in December.
Beginning in January,
Palm Tran plans to fuel its
buses with biodeisel, a
mixture of regular diesel
fuel and processed veg-
etable or soybean oil.
Biodesiel use has shown


to reduce bus emissions
by 30 to 40 percent.
Public transportation
provides a safe, cost-
effective way to reduce
the impact of pollution on
the environment.
For general route infor-
mation and trip planning,

Another war?

Seems to me that with gas prices rocketing, the
economy nose diving and spending billions of dollars
fighting a war, the politicians ought to be saying,
"Throw Bush out."
No one wants to do that, probably until there's another
war.
Now we have world war Bush I, and world war Bush II.
That's all I have to say.

The flag


L_'

* .


I remember when I was a little girl at Shapleigh
Elementary School in Kittery, Maine, and the teacher
would say, "Children, it is now time to stand for the
Pledge of Allegiance." And we all stood in succession
and placed our right hands over our hearts. When you're
a little kid, sometimes you get the hand wrong, but your
heart is always right.
And so we began, "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America, and to the Republic for which
it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty
and justice for all."
We were children, but we knew the words and we
spoke with pride for our country.
Now, I am older and see the flag and remember what I
was taught as a little girl in school; to always respect the
flag and what it stands for.

The office of the president
of the United States of America

Hate has no boundaries, and it appears that President
Bush has many enemies because he sent soldiers to
fight in a war that to many, seems senseless.
I have always taken the opposite view of the president
and found myself to be persecuted for my position. I
always counter with: "He is a Christian and he prays."
There has been only one thing I have needed to know
about President Bush: that he is a man who fears God
and prays fervently each day from his heart. Jesus, the
Son of God, was persecuted for righteousness, but he
never wavered in his position. He stood up for what he
believed.
My favorite Associated Press newspaper clip is of the
president and the first lady with their heads bowed at
the 53rd National Prayer Breakfast. And I got to think-
ing, if one cannot respect the person, they should at
least respect the position, that being the office of the
president of the United States.
I would much rather place my trust in a man that
prays to God, than one who does not.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."
(Psalm 111:10)

Smokers, watch where you drop it

I'd like to propose a local campaign about cigarette
butts and call it, "Don't let your butt hit the ground."
We could report all the people we see dropping their
butts in the wrong places. Maybe Hometown News could
back the campaign and print records of the offenses.
I saw a girl drop a cigarette in the ocean the other day.
I just reminded her it wasn't the place for her butt.

Keep daylight-saving time

I'm a longtime reader of Hometown News. I want to
compliment you, I think it is a great paper. I look
forward to reading it every week, particularly the rants
and raves.
I just want to make a comment about "Do away with
daylight-saving time" (Oct. 26) rant.
I think the opposite should happen. We should keep it
year round.
I thought there was consideration by the president to
do that to save energy. We would save millions annually.
It sure would be nice to come home at the end of the
day and have a little bit of daylight instead of having
dark.
The comment: "The solution is an absolute no-
brainer. Anyone with common sense should be able to
see it," makes no sense to me.
It would make sense to me to see that children are
going to school way too early. I'm a parent and a grand-
parent and it seems to me children both go to school
and come home too early. School schedules could be
changed to correspond with daylight as opposed to
sending kids out there in the dark.
It's a no-brainer to send the kids to school in daylight


and et hem omehomein ayliht.Verysimle. han


and let them come home in daylight. Very simple. Thank
you.

Handicapped parking spaces

I am a person who has polio and is paralyzed. I also
drive.
Originally, the handicapped parking spaces were
meant for people who were paralyzed and their driver.
People in wheelchairs cannot get out of a van in the
regular size parking spaces.
I've seen people who park in the handicapped spaces
jumping in and out of trucks and cars and running into
the mall.
Anyone who is able to walk throughout the whole mall
should be able to walk to the mall from a regular parking
space.
If you have a heart condition the doctors recommend
that you walk a lot, and walking is good for you.
Also, if you have emphysema, I don't know how you
can walk through a whole mall.
It's not fair for the people who are in wheelchairs and
need a handicapped space, and are unable to get it.

Look at the whole picture

This is in response to "No to amnesty."
The government needs to wake up. Illegal immigrants
aren't going to just go away.
This country was founded by immigrants, our forefa-
thers and so on.
Make the ones who are here working hard as they do,
legal. Collect the taxes and Social Security. Maybe it will
improve our tax situation.
The illegal immigrants are very helpful to the economy
in a lot of ways. They contribute to the food, clothing,
housing and much more.
The government needs to do something with our own
welfare system.
The immigrants don't receive food stamps or anything.
They only receive medical aid when needed.
The Americans alone are abusing the welfare
system.
Look at the whole picture. This is not an issue to be
narrowed down to one group.
The first Cubans that came to America helped the
economy in so many ways.
Many people were against that back then.
Look what they have done for Florida, and the whole
economy.

Portability tax

This is to say no on Jan. 29 to the portability ballot that
is coming up in Florida.
People are saying that they feel stuck in their homes,
even if they are downsizing.
They feel they should be able to take their tax, whether
it be $75,000 or $100,000 assessed value, and move it
into their new smaller home that is worth up to
$500,000,
SThey say they are stuck in their homes, and they want
the ability to take it with them.
The real people who are stuck in Florida in their'
homes right now are the people who purchased their
homes at a premium in the last five years.
A lot of the homes are now worth $100,000 to $200,000
less than when they purchased them.
The reason they are stuck is because most of them
have mortgages that are higher than the cost of their
houses right now.
They also are paying top-dollar premium taxes to the
state and counties of Florida.
Taking portability for people who have been in their
homes for extended periods of time and who don't want
to move because they choose not to pay the taxes on a
more expensive or a nicer home, should stay in their


home.
It's not fair for the people who have moved here in the
last five, six or seven years or more, and purchased
homes at premium prices to pay way higher taxes than
someone who can own the exact same home right next
door and pay extremely little and have stayed in their
homes for 10 or 15 years, or longer.
It is just so ridiculous it is almost scary that they are
even thinking of putting this on the tax ballot.
If they need to fix the taxes, they need to fix the taxes
for everybody, not for just the few people who are their
friends.
It irks me that they say that peoplefeel stuck in their
homes.
Maybe they should talk to some of the people whose
homes are now worth about $100,000 less than the
original purchase price. They are paying way, way
higher taxes than what they should be paying.
I hope people see that this would be an unjustifiable
slap in the face for many, many people who are living in
Florida.
By passing a law for portability, what Gov. Christ would
like to see would be for people who purchased homes
within a certain time frame being penalized with
extremely high taxes.
People who didn't purchase homes during this certain
time frame will benefit.
It doesn't make any sense to me. And, I don't see how
it could make any sense to anybody unless they have
been in their homes for a while and have an extremely
low assessment.
That is whom it will benefit.

Your kids are your responsibility

In response to "Teachers should stop their whining," I
agree that there are excellent and some not-so-excellent'
teachers anywhere you go. And with any profession, you
can get burned out and need to make a change.
However, I believe that teachers should be teachers, as
the name implies.
They are not here to raise your kids because you are
too busy pursuing a career.
If the parents are too stressed, maybe they should have
thought about that before they procreated.
They are your kids and it is your responsibility to raise
them.
Expecting someone else to teach your children right
from wrong, moral versus immoral and good versus bad
is irresponsible at least, and borderline neglect.
What you are showing them is that your career is more
important than they are.
If there is a problem with your children at school,
maybe you need to spend more time with them.
If the problem was unjust, then you had better help
them understand it and how to deal with it. This is not
fantasyland. Life is not always fair. Get real.
As for being a mentor, don't place your shortcomings
on someone else's shoulders.

Dirty old men

What is it about these dirty old men, young and
middle-age men alike, coming out of the woodwork
lately?
Sex predators, deviant types and what used to be call
"mashers" are all coming out of hiding.
There never used to be so many of these creatures.
There seems to be a new one every day lately, and some
are prominent people.
Why all of a sudden?
Wouldn't you think with all of the publicity about them
exposing themselves they would stay low-key?
It's almost as if they want to get caught. Is there an
epidemic of oversexed men? Is that all they are thinking
about?
Each one of them should get a life.

lies in need of support
because of tragedies or
other unforeseen circum-
stances.
"(The stadium will be
built) to memorialize
Amanda as a citizen. She
was a tremendous ath-
lete. More than that, it
will provide a place for
children to play and
learn, have fun and work
on their dreams," said
Mr. Buckley. "The stadi-
um is a joint effort
between the city of Palm
Beach Gardens, the pub-
lic and private sector to


provide for our children,"
he added.
Vickie Havnar, chair-
woman for the fundrais-
ing organization, said she
is trying to raise approxi-
mately $ 1.5 million for
the facility. The fundrais-
ing committee has
planned a charity golf
tournament in May 2008,
and a softball tourna-
ment in October 2008 to
help raise donations.
Phase I of the Amanda
Buckley Field of Dreams
Stadium, which includes
the completion of. the


dugouts and main field,
should be finished by the
opening of the high
school softball season in
February, when Palm
Beach Gardens High
meets Dwyer on the clay.
Ms. Havnar says a rib-
bon cutting ceremony
will take place at that
time.
Last month, the man
charged with Ms. Buck-
ley's murder, Palm Beach
Gardens resident Jason
Shenfeld, was sentenced
to 15 years in prison for
violating his probation.


Mr. Shenfeld, 26, was
on probation for a 2002
robbery conviction at
the time of the murder.
In July, Ms. Buckley's
body was found in the
closet of his bedroom at
his parents' home with
severe traumatic
injuries. The medical
examiner determined
the cause of Ms. Buck-
ley's death was strangu-
lation.
While no trial date has
been set, the state has
said it will seek the death
penalty in his case.

drugs in the six months
prior.
According to the Food
and Drug Administra-
tion's Web site, OxyCon-
tin poses a more serious
health threat to recre-
ational users because it
contains exceptionally
high doses of the active
ingredient, oxycodone, in
a time-released capsule.
When the capsule is
broken, as it frequently is
in illegal use, the high
dose can be especially
dangerous, even fatal.
Oxycodone abuse
seems disproportionate-
ly high in Palm Beach
County.
According to a 2006
report from the Florida
Medical Examiner's Com-
mission, Palm Beach.
County's rate of oxy-
codone deaths was sec-
ond only to St. Peters-
burg's Pinellas County.
In the Palm Beach
County examiner's dis-
trict, 71 people died as a
result of oxycodone


intake. However, the dis-
trict medical examiner
determined that 65 of
these deaths were a result
of taking oxycodone in
combination with other
drugs, most often alcohol
or Xanax.
The same report shows
that Palm Beach County
has the third highest rate
of alprazolam deaths in
the state.
In 2006, 61 people died
of alprazolam (Xanax)
intake.
Abuse, of these two
drugs proves to be partic-
ularly worrisome for law
enforcement. The drugs
present a high risk of
dependency, and the
powerful high elicited by
the substances attracts
widespread recreational
use.
Habitual users tend to
increase dosages after
repeated use, which can
lead to potentially fatal
consequences.
According to the FDA's
Web site, even small


amounts of these drugs
can be dangerous (a few
milligrams of alprazo-
lam, for instance) if taken
with alcohol or other
drugs.
A recent press release
from the Southern Dis-
trict State Attorney's
Office revealed the extent
of the black market dis-
tribution of prescription
pills in South Florida.
On Oct. 25, James Mod-
ica of Tamarac was
indicted on charges that
he spearheaded a pain
pill distribution ring that
pushed the illegal sale of
150,000 pain pills. Mr.
Modica and his associ-
ates recruited co-con-
spirators to mislead
South Florida physicians
to obtain the pills.
According to the indict-
ment, Mr. Modica pro-
vided the funds for med-
ical examinations and
prescriptions.
James Durr, captain of
the narcotics division at;
the Palm Beach County


Sheriff's Office,
expressed his concern
about Florida's lack of
pharmaceutical drug
monitoring.
"Right now, we're the
prescription pill grocery
store for the United
States," he said.
"There's no communi-
cation between pharma-
cies. A person can fill a
prescription for OxyCon-
tin at a CVS, and go to a
Walgreens the same day
and fill another prescrip-
tion."
Capt. Durr said he sup-
ports a pharmacy- moni-
toring bill that would cre-
ate a log of all
prescriptions for widely
abused drugs. The log
would be stored in a
computer database, so a
person seeking to fill
multiple prescriptions
over a short amount- of
time would be flagged
and refused by the phar-
macy.


very now and again. I
encounter aWeb site
that goes above and
beyond the usual drivel
that most sites dish out.
I mean it's possible to
"surf the Web" for hours
and never once see or read
anything worth remem-
bering. So, it's refreshing to
find a site that actually has
any useful content. One of
my personal favorites is
www. lifehacker. corn.
One of the things that I
like about the site is that
new content is added
constantly. It's not one of
those sites where you have
to wait a month for
anything new to be posted,
new information appears
every couple of hours.
What kind of informa-
tion?
All sorts of good informa-
tion, tips, tricks and
advice.
Some is related to
computers in general, but
just about every day they
post good, how-to infor-
mation for Macs as well as
information about the
Linux Ubuntu operating
system and Windows Vista,
too.
However, computers are
not the only thing they
give advice on. Some of
the tips are helpful for
living a better life. They
often will post information
on ways to increase your
productivity by prioritizing
task lists or clues to get the
best bargains when
shopping or even how to
sanitize your cubicle so
your work environment is
healthy.
I like the site because the
information is concise and
written in a way that is
easy to understand. And,
since there is so much
available on the site, I
don't feel like I'm missing
anything if I skip an article
that is not on an area of
interest to me.
There are also com-
ments. Lots and lots of

comments. Every time you
rqad an article there are
comments at the end (you
can add your own after a
brief sign-up). Sometimes
you can glean more advice
from others who may be in
a similar situation.
Where do they get all this
information?
They link to the sites that
have all this information
and gather it together in
one place, making it easy
to find. They are an
"aggregator," taking the
aggravation out of finding
useful information on the
Web.
When you first arrive at
LifeHacker.com, you will
first notice a "username,"
"password" and "log in"
button followed by a "new

sary to log in if you are just
going to browse the
articles and read, but if
you want to participate
and add your own com-
ments then you will want
to create an account (don't
worry, it's spam and
Spyware safe).
Look down a bit farther
on the page and you will
find some links to different
categories of information
followed by a search bar. I
usually start out reading
what they have listed as
the "latest" (the category

Avoid the minefield of fine print in car ads


Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager ofEarl
Stewart Toyota in North Palm
Beach. The dealership is
located at 1215 N. Federal
Highway in Lake Park.

or e-mail earls@earlstewart-

Wrote a column for this
paper on Sept. 7 entitled
I'Quick reference guide
to fine print in car ads."
Since then, dealers have
come up with so many more
gimmicks and tricks that I felt
compelled to write another
column adding the latest bait
and switch fine- print
disclaimers. All of these are
taken direcdv from the Palr
Beach Post auto classified
section.You will probably
need a magnifying glass to
read some of these. I do.
Several of the fine print
disclaimers you will read are
illegal under Florida law, but


Local Agent Guarantees Home

Sale in Tough Florida Real Estate

Market


What if, when you
listed your home for
sale, you could receive
a guarantee from the
Realtor that your home
would be sold? In this
real estate market where
so many homes are
languishing with "for
sale" signs on the lawn,
some for more than two
years, Liz Bacall at
Keller Williams has a
program to get homes
sold fast and for top
dollar.
"When I list a home,
I offer the Sellers
guarantee that if their
home does not sell, I
will buy it," Bacall said.
"I strive to be the kind of
Realtor I would want if
I were selling and buying
a home."
But guaranteeing the
sale of a house? "Yes,"


said Bacall, "Because it
enables people to get on
with their lives."
We all know how it
works when we want to
buy our next home, but
the old one has not sold.
Even though we make an
offer, if another Buyer
comes along who has no
contingency, we lose.
Bacall guarantees the
sale of the home so
that the Seller has a
solid offer to purchase
their next home. This
Guaranteed Sale Program
works for new construc-
tion home purchases, too.
Builders can refer their
new home buyers to
Bacall for her to list and
guarantee the sale of
their old home, and the
sale can be completed
on time.
"I follow the Realtor


Code of Ethics, so if a
Seller has their home
listed with another agent,
it is not ethical for me to
talk with them," Bacall
states. "However, if
someone's listing has
expired and the home is
Sno longer on the market,
then I can work withQ
them.
Whether they are re-
listing or listing for the
first time, I'm delighted
to offer my services to
anyone who is serious
about selling their home."
Information about Bacall's
program is available 24-
hours a day at both a hot-
line and a website. Go to
www.guaranteedpbg.com
or call 1-800-895-1037
and enter #4066. Not
intended to solicit
property currently for sale.
PAID ADVERTORIAL


dealers constantly run them
with impunity.
For example, Florida law
requires that the advertised
price of a car must include all
charges, except sales tax and
license tag. The dealer fee
must be included in the
advertised price and some
dealers either are ignorant of
this law or just ignore it.
I don't understand why the
Florida Attorney General's
office ignores this. In fact, I
don't understand why the
local newspapers that run
these ads don't take a stand.
I guess Bill McCollum and
Tom Giuffrida don't read my
column.
Smart buyers read the
fine print. What do you
suppose motivates this
dealer to hide this sentence
in thefine print of his very
deceptive newspaper ads? Is
this just a very bad joke on his
customers? Does he think
that the customer will forgive
him for being baited and
switched because he has also
included this sarcastic
phrase?
Some vehicles listed may
be pre-owned. This dealer
will have used cars mixed in
among the new cars that he
has advertised. Unless you
can read the fine print, you
don't find out until you come
into the dealership.
"$1,000 cash offer" paid
out in any form or combina-
tion of forms. I'm not exactly
sure what the dealer intends
to communicate here, but
interpreting this literally
means he can pay you with a
credit toward the purchase of
another car, in extended
payments over time or
maybe even in shiny beads
and trinkets such as we used
when we bought Manhattan

from the Indians.
Must take delivery today.
To get the advertised price,
you have to drive it home the
same day. If you take delivery
you also have to sign all of the
papers including finance
arrangements. This precludes
you from doing any due
diligence in getting competi-
tive bids on the car you're
buying. the interest rate and
trade in allowance.
Price includes $2,000
cash or trade equity. This
simply means that the price
you can read in the full- size
print has been reduced by
$2,000. If you find and can
read the fine print, it tells you
have to pay an extra $2,000
above the advertised price.
Hazardous waste
disposal fee. This is just one
of many phony fees you can
be charged in dealers' service
departments. Other names
dealers have dreamed up for
this extra surprise profit are:
shop supplies, miscellaneous
supplies and sundry supplies.
This fee is added by taking a
percent of your total service
bill up to 10 percent. If you
take issue with this charge,
there is a good chance the
dealer will waive it.
700 miles per month.
This is a limitation on the
number of miles you can
accumulate on your leased
car without paying a penalty
at the end of your lease. The
amount of miles allowed
varies, but they usually are
much less than an average
driver drives. If you average
15,000 miles per year, your
penalty on a 36-month lease
with a 700- mile per month
limit and a 25-cent per mile
penalty would be $4,950.
Offers maybe cancelled
at any time without notice.
This is pretty self explanatory
if you can read the fine print.
If the dealer decides that he
doesn't want to honor the
price offered in the ad, he can
just say, "I changed my
mind."
Very short lease term and
high down payment. Nothing
sells cars like low monthly
payments. A car dealer can
make a monthly lease
payment as low ashe wants
by reducing the number of
months of the lease and
increasing the down pay-
ment. I'm looking at an ad in
the Palm Beach Postright
now advertising an SUVfor
$19,999 or just $199 per
month. In the fine print it
says 27-month lease and


$3,000 down, plus a $799
dealer fee.
Plus dealer-installed
options. The price you see
advertised in the paper is not
the full price. This loophole
allows the dealer to tack on
thousands of dollars in
overpriced accessories to the
price that was advertised.
With approved credit.
The lease payment or
purchase payment you see
advertised is based on ,
someone with very, very good
credit. Sometimes the ad will
specify a minimum Beacon
score of 750 or even 760. An
almost negligible percent of
people have a credit score
that high. This payment gets
you in the door, then they tell
you your credit isn't good
enough to qualify for that
payment.
Advertised offer good on
select in-stockvehicles only.
Dealers often advertise just
one car at a price below their
cost. They don't pay the
salesman a commission if he
sells that vehicle. The
chances of that car being
available for you to buy are
"slim and none." Even'if the
car was still there, the
salesman would do every-
thing in his power to sell you
a different car that he could
earn a commission on.
Owner loyalty rebate.
Manufacturers offer special
cash rebates to current
owners of their cars. These
rebates are not available to
you if you don't currently own
that particular make of car.
For example, if you own a
Honda, and want to buy a
Toyota, you don't qualify for a
Toyota loyalty rebate.
That price you see advertised
won't be available.
Military rebate. If you are
on active duty in the U.S.
armed forces you qualify for
this rebate. Of course, the
price you read in the paper
already discounts the price
by this amount and the
dealer increases it if you are
not a "soldier."
*College graduate rebate.
If you have graduated from
an accredited four-year
college within the last six
months, you qualify for this
rebate. And the price in the
paper is discounted by this
amount.
Dealer loyalty rebate. To
qualify for this rebate that is
already taken out of the
advertised price, you must
have bought a car from this

Cancer foundation affiliate


shares program success stories


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

PALM BEACH COUNTY
- More thin 75 supporters
of the Susan G. Komen for
the Cure Foundation,
South Florida Affiliate,
recently attended a pink-
themed luncheon at the
Kravis Center for the Per-
forming Arts in West Palm
Beach.
Affiliate board President
Michele Donahue of
Jupiter, introduced the
event's purpose: to share
successes of local pro-
grams funded by the pro-
ceeds of the annual race
and other fundraising
events throughout the year.
Guests had the opportu-
nity to connect with local
survivors who have bene-
fited from the community
education and special
grant programs funded by
the affiliate.


Grants committee co-
chairwoman Diane Carl-
son introduced guest
speakers Patricia Rojas,
beneficiary of the Caridad
Health Clinic breast care
program grant; Edie Robin,
who validated the impor-
tance of the lymphedema
support and education
programs at the Ruth Rales
Jewish Family Service in
West Palm Beach; and
Robert Kunkle, a third-'
generation, male breast
cancer survivor who par-
ticipated in the Martin
Memorial Hospital genet-.
ics program.
Serving Palm Beach,
Martin and St. Lucie coun-
ties, the Affiliate has more
than 350 volunteers who
work in the fight against
breast cancer. Up to 75
Percent of the funds raised
through events such as
Race for the Cure stay in


South Florida, fund local
-breast cancer education,
screening and treatment
programs. The remaining
25 percent funds cutting-
edge breast cancer
research programs allocat-
ed through Komen's
National Headquarters.
The Cancer Alliance of
Help and Hope, based in
Jupiter, is a local South

The 17th annual Komen
South Florida Race for the
Cure, presented locally by
Florida Power and Light,

If you are like me, then
you probably appreciate
"free stuff" and doing a
LifeHacker search for

find some of the most
original and useful "free-

And LifeHacker does a
fine job filtering out the

tricked into downloading
something with a bunch of
spyware juhk to clog up

I mentioned earlier that
there a lot of Mac and
Ubuntu tips posted. I
write this column weekly

occasionally get an e-mail
from someone asking
about Macs.
If you own a Mac, (I own
two, I just do the bulk of
my work on Windows
machines, that's why I
hardly ever write about
them) and are looking for
a place to find some
awesome tips and tricks,
LifeHacker is a great place
to start.
If all you run is Windows

From page A8
particular dealer within the
last year.
Price...plus, tax, tag and
fees. The red flag word here is
"fees." The fees these dealers
refer to are "dealer fees"
which are synonymous for
dealer profit. Most people
thinkit's a federal or state tax
of some kind. It's nothing
more than more money for
the dealer that is not dis-
closed in the price of the car.
Offers expire date of
publication or may be
cancelled at any time
without notice. This simply
means that the prices,
payments, etc., you have
read, have no validity
whatsoever. The prices are
not good tomorrow, but they
aren't even any good today,
because the dealer can
cancel the offer without
notice.
Not responsible for
typographical errors. This is
just one more way for a
dealer to explain why they
can't sell you the car for the
advertised price. We don't
have to honor that price
because it was a "typographi-
cal error."
Vehicle art for illustra-
tions only. This means that
the car you are looking at
with the really great-looking
wheels might not have those
wheels on the one you buy.
Or, maybe it doesn't even
have that sunroof you see in


the picture.
Minimum trade based on
dealer list price. The dealer
list price is not the same
thing as the manufacturer's
suggest price. Dealers add
markups to the Monroney
label, also known as MSRP or
manufacturer's suggested
retail price. They label this
markup (often on a sticker
designed to imitate the
official federal Monroney
label). Dealer markups of
$3,000 and much more are
common on such "counter-
feit Monroney" labels. In this
case, the dealer has marked
up the MSRP far enough so
that he can offer a minimum
$10,000 trade-in allowance.
Offer not available on
advertised cars. Folks, it's
hard to believe that even a
car dealer would have the
unmitigated gall to print an
offer in his newspaper
advertisement with an
asterisk that referred to fine
print saying it doesn't apply
to any cars in this advertise-
ment.
My advice to you is to
ignore all car dealers'
newspaper advertising.
Most car ads are designed
to "get you in the door" so
they can sell you some car
other than the one adver-
tised, so that they can make
more money.
If you must respond to a
dealer's newspaper ad, please
be sure to break out your
magnifying glass and
carefully read the fine print.

its final renovation, will
serve as a learning center
and meeting place for res-
idents of Village of Hope
and Place of Hope, the vil-
lage's companion foster
care facility.
Upon completion, the
new facility, tentatively
named the "Ages to Ages
Center," will offer inde-

help young adults leaving
foster care succeed in the
community. The center
will also include a busi-
ness center providing resi-

"We need more places
like this," said Charles
Bender, executive director
at Village of Hope. "The
only way to accomplish
this is to enlist the help of
the community and the
youths (living at the facili-
ties)."
Several residents from
Villages of Hope turned
out to help paint the new
building and clear out its
innards in preparation for
the move-in.
The building was ready
for preliminary use last
Wednesday. '

Congressman works
to commemorate
veterans

Congressman Tim
Mahoney, D-Palm Beach
Gardens, was busy last
week with two projects
designed to honor Ameri-
can servicemen and
women.
On Veteran's Day, Rep.
Mahoney initiated the Vet-
eran's History Project with
Palm Beach Gardens High
School students. The fol-
lowing day, he witnessed
the signing of his bill that
made a Fort Pierce Navy
museum the official
national museum for
SEALs.

Mahoney and Palm Beach
Gardens High School stu-
dents kicked off the Veter-
ans History Project, a pub-
lic initiative to help
archive the experiences of
the nation's veterans.
The project was author-
ized in 2000, signed into
law by former president
Bill Clinton.
Congressman Mahoney
connected high school
social studies and TV pro-
duction students with
local veterans to docu-
ment their stories on film,
a press release said. The
recorded interviews will be
"sent to the Library of
Congress for preservation
in the national archive."
The veterans involved in
the project, Lawrence
Schwartz and Piero Pareja,
have vastly different expe-
'riences to recount.
Mr. Schwartz served in
the E 161st infantry divi-
sion in WWII that helped
lead the assault on San
Manuel in the Luzon
region of the Phillipines in
1945.
Mr. Pareja, a national
guardsman, was stationed
in Afghanistan in 2005 fol-
lowing the U.S. invasion.
The servicemen's stories
will be screened next
spring before being deliv-
ered to the Library of Con-
gress.
The day following the
initiation of the archiving
project, Rep. Mahoney's
bill designating the Fort
Pierce Navy museum as
the official national muse-
um for SEALs was signed
into law.
The museum is the only
museum specifically hon-
oring and commemorating
the Navy's special mis-
sions unit, the SEALs.
The museum's site "was
the birthplace of the Navy
Frogmen," said a press
release.
In World War II, thou-
sands of naval combat
demolition soldiers were
trained on the grounds on
which the museum now
stands. The museum con-
tains photos and historical
artifacts chronicling the
evolution of the Navy's
elite force.

Jewish Film Festival opens Dec. 1


Basketball
film
a must-see

BY DANIEL SHUBE
Entertainment writer

PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS Having played a
little basketball growing
up .in New York, I must
say I am disappointed in
myself.
I was smart enough to
realize I was too short
and could not jump high
enough to make a living
at basketball. It did take
me a while to realize. I
played through my teens,
attending Kutcher's
Sports Academy in the
Catskills (I was coached
by Bobby Knight) and
even played junior varsity
in high school against
some later-to-become
pro talent.
But' it took an educa-
tion provided by produc-
er/director David Vyorst
from his documentary
"The First Basket" to
inform me that Ossie
Schectman, a Jewish for-
ward from Queens, who
attended my alma matter,
Long Island University, in
1946, scored the first bas-
ket in professional bas-
ketball for the Basketball
Association of America,
which shortly thereafter
became the National Bas-
ketball Association.
"The First Basket" is
one of many films being
screened during the Palm
Beach Jewish Film Festi-
val, this year being held

(Syndicated News) "There are two sides
to every story." An old adage that has proven
itself true time and time again in nearly
every area of life. In the case of guided hunt-
ing services, nothing could be closer to the
truth-- a fact that
Native HuMnt
(http: /native -
hunt.conif owvier
T. Michael Riddle
knows well.
I"Hunting ill
general is a con-
troversial spo. t."
says Riddle.
"Some people '
despise it while "
other people i
couldn't live with- I .'
out it. At Naw'e~
Hunt, we under-
stand both opin-
ions. We never try to push our viewpoints on
anybody; we simply offer our services and
let people decide for themselves."
Native Hunt is a licensed, .state-bonded
hunting service with ranches located in
Monterey and Fresno couritiesgih California.
In business since 1990, Native iunt employs
both game management professionals and
trained hunting guides -- a combination that
has led to a 100 percent success rate for their


clients.
"Our professionals understand that not
everybody agrees with what they do," says
Riddle. "At the same time, however, they
have high expectations to live up to from our
clients; and at a 100
percent success
rate, it's hard to
argue with their pro-
fessionalisin."
Native Hunt offers
a wide variety of
guided hunting ven-
tures including one-
and two-day hunts
for wild boar. bear.
S... .:i, eturke\v. deer, and a
us number of assorted
outo game birds.
According to Riddle,
.t iNative Hunt's ranch-
es offer more than
just a haven for hunting enthusiasts. With
tree-covered hills, lush valleys and numer-
ous ponds, the company's property is the
perfect place for individuals who enjoy the
outdoors.
"At the basis of hunting is a love for the out-
Sdoors," says Riddle. "We embrace the out-,
doors and we believe in sharing our beauti-
ful settings with everybody -- both hunters
and non-hunters alike."

Risotto can stand alone


the rice begins to stick to
the bottom of the pan.
Then, add the squash
juice a 1/2 cup at a time,
only after the previous juice
has been absorbed, occa-
sionally stirring for 15-18
minutes. Now, you need to
start tasting the risotto. It
should be firm, yet cooked
through. The total cooking
time should be 20 minutes.
Season with salt and
freshly ground white pepper
and 2 tablespoons of cold
butter. Stir until well
blended and serve immedi-
ately. Enjoy!

Tips and Techniques
Do not over stir the
risotto, because as you stir
it, the rice releases starch. If
it releases too much starch,
the rice will turn to mush.
Herb-roasted chicken,
butter-poached lobster or
slow-cooked lamb shoulder
go very well with this dish.
I would choose a bottle
of white Burgundy. Try

squash as the absorbing
liquid in the cooking
process. This will not only
give the risotto that smooth
delicious flavor of the
butternut squash, but also
turn the rice a brilliant
orange color.
First, peel or cut the skin
off the squash and cut it
into cubes, then extract all
of the liquid from the
squash using a juicer.
Set the juice to the side
and begin cooking the
risotto.
In a large heavy saucepan
over medium heat, melt the
.butter, add the onions and
slowly cook for 10-12
minutes or until they are
translucent. Then add the
arborio rice and cook using
a wooden spoon to gently
stir for 8 minutes or until

PALM BEACH GARDENS
- With text messaging one
of the most popular means

The Gardens Mall will debut
a one-of-a-kind program on

The "Great Gift Giveaway"
begins at 8 a.m. on Nov. 23

mall's giveaways.


"The Gardens Mall is the
most luxurious shopping

ty, and we felt this was a very
unique way to kick-off the
first day of the holiday shop-
ping season that no other
mall is doing," said Michele
Jacobs, director of market-
ing for the mall in a press
release.
"We are thrilled to be the
first mall in the county to
launch the texting program
and feature such a fabulous

The program will work in
several ways during this hol-
iday season. On Black Fri-

be available on the busiest

A grateful


Thanksgiving


is great feng


shui energy


Thanksgiving is the
one holiday per year
that seems to be the
least commercialized and
most heartfelt.
It is the holiday where the
focus is on family, friends,
food and gratitude for what
you have.
The hustle and bustle of
this holiday has a lot less to
do with commercialized gift
giving and shopping'til you
drop, but rather recognizing
and honoring the joy of
being together, sharing
good food, good company,
good times and expressing
gratefulness for all of the
above.
A great deal of positive
energy is created in your life
through acknowledging
gratitude for all you have,
both tangible, such as your
home, family, career and
friends, plus the intangible,
such as freedom to travel
where and when you want,
say what is on your mind
and worship where and
how you wish.
Being grateful is one o.f
the best ways to create the
positive feng shui energy I
write and speak about.
Not only is positive
energy created by being
grateful for all you have, it is
also created by those you
share the holiday with. You
provide them positive
energy and they provide
you positive energy. The
memories created by such
shared events become a
reservoir of positive energy
you can draw upon when
you are feeling down and
depressed or simply feeling
fatigued and out of sorts.

Four ways to create
your positive energy
survival kit

It is one thing to be in the
moment and really enjoy
the festivities of a holiday
such as Thanksgiving, but
this abundance of positive
energy only occurs once a
year. And, it precedes two
more holidays where there
is often an abundance of
really enjoyable positive
energy to benefit from in
the present and the future.
So, what do you do the
other 360 plus days of the
year?
What you do is learn to
store up some of this
wonderful Thanksgiving
holiday energy of abun-
dance, family, friends and
nourishment to draw upon
during those days through-
out the year that are leaner,
less hospitable and perhaps
even lonely.
Apply some of the
following feng shui princi-
ples to help maintain the
positive energy you will
create and enjoy during the
Thanksgiving season so you
can use it all year long.
1. Take pictures. Yes, I
said take pictures, lots of
pictures of your holiday
feast, family members,
guests, friends, food and
even pets. Capture and
preserve the essence of all
of your holiday joy and
positive energy. Then create
a collage of six to eight of
your favorites. Place the
collage in a silver frame and
hang it in the northwest
area of your family or living
room. This will provide you
hours of grateful positive
energy throughout the year.
2. Light at least one
candle in a safe container
during your holiday festivi-


PAT HEYDLAUFF
Feng shui columnist


ties and let the flame burn
brightly for a long period of
time. If you like fragranced
candles, select one that is
appropriate for the holiday,
such as baking spices or
cinnamon.
Whenever you are in
need of the positive energy
you have stored in your
survival kit, burn a candle
with the exact same
fragrance. You will be
transported emotionally to
your positive energy
reserves through your sense
of smell and the visible
flame, providing you that
much needed energy lift.
3. Maintain an "I am
grateful for... "journal.
Once Thanksgiving has
passed, sit down and reflect
on all the things you are
grateful for in your life.
Write them in your journal.
Add things to your journal
on a weekly basis so you
have a formidable list as
time passes. A gratitude
journal is filled with
hundreds and hundreds of
positive energy thoughts
and memories to lift your
spirits on a down day.
4. A colorful way to
preserve positive holiday
energy is to create a huge
bouquet of silk flowers.
Start with the prettiest
vase you have or can afford
to buy. For each positive
energy holiday thought or
memory you have, place
one silk flower into your
vase. Continue adding to
your vase with each new
positive thought as the year
progresses. Pretty soon you
will have a gorgeous
bouquet of flowers that will
make you smile, plus
provide you with positive
energy every time you look
at it. Place that vase in the
southeast area of your
home to further energize
positive relationships that
will help you create even
more positive energy
messages.
Your positive energy
survival kit will lift your
spirits and encourage you
during times that would
otherwise be quite difficult
for you to process or deal
with.
Enjoy Thanksgiving just
as it is, a wonderful holiday
filled with gratitude, good
food and great positive
energy. Savor and enjoy
that positive energy all year
long through the various
feng shui tools now avail-
able to you in your positive
energy survival kit.

Sexual discontinuities


ince I am address-
ing one of the most
sex-crazy species
of animal on the entire
planet, it occurs to me
that I ought to say a little
something about that fas-
cinating subject.
We have such an
ambivalent attitude
about sex. We both adore
and abhor it. It's easy to
understand why folks
might get a little con-
fused from time to time.
Couple that with the
fact that males and
females generally have
what might be consid-
ered polar opposite views
about sex and sexuality
and it becomes clear that
people probably need the
occasional infusion of
common sense. Other-
wise, they might get too
caught up in their own
fantasies, which often
have little to do with
reality.
Certainly, any object
for thought that we find
so persistently entranc-
ing is a likely candidate
for delusion and a
substantial misappropri-
ation of energy.
We may see people
engaging in just that all
over town. That may work
out OK for single people,
it's the married ones I
worry about. Married
people need to think
twice about what they do
in this department.
Otherwise, a little
indiscretion can blow
their lives right out of the
water.

What is it
about sex?

Obviously, the real
reason we enjoy sex so
much is so that the
species will be preserved.
It's the same with other
animals. They're com-
pelled to have sex by
their very nature. We do
these things because
that's how we're made. It's
biology, pure and simple.
On the other hand, for
us humans, things are
never pure or simple.
We're just complicated by
nature.
Humans use sex for
pair bonding and recre-
ation, not just reproduc-
tion. Our cousins, the
apes, apparently do this
too, especially our
nearest relatives, the
chimpanzees. Not quite
like we do, of course.
Their dating rituals are a
bit simpler. That's not to
say they don't get inti-
mate. Obviously, they do,
in their own way. Cer-
tainly, picking fleas off of
someone and eating
them is kind of intimate,


-I

right? But humans are
much.more subtle and
personal about it (and,
hopefully, more tasteful
although you can't always
count on that).
Humans are the only
mammals, for instance,
that typically mate face-
to-face. That's more
intimate, isn't it? And, like
other primates, we are
available for mating at
just about any time. And,
we have all these second-
ary sex characteristics,
just to make sure we stay
interested.
We are among the
sexiest animals, and
unlike any other, we are
sexy even when we're not
courting.
Look at the obvious
physical differences
between male and female
humans. It's hard, maybe
impossible, for humans
not to be aware of their
sexuality even when
they're not having or
trying to have sex. It's just
tough to avoid sexual
cues and signals, even in
ordinary discourse with
the opposite gender. This
leads to all sorts of
trouble both on and off
the job.

Sex in marriage

The procreative
function of sex can,
paradoxically, interfere
with enjoyment. A couple
trying hard to get preg-
nant can find that their
lovemaking has become
mechanistic and sched-
ule-driven. It can feel like
the spontaneity and joy is
gone, because of their
preoccupation with
reproduction.
The same can be said
for the couple trying hard
not to get pregnant. Their
concern for avoiding
reproduction can curtail
their mating and fill them
with anxiety, not the
sexiest of emotions.
Anxiety.is probably the
biggest killer of sexual
desire among humans.
The intimate rapport and
warm acceptance that
make for great sex can be
hard to come by when

you're full of stress.
Depression is a close
second, and the cure may
be worse than the dis-
ease. One of the main
side effects of the new
generation of anti-
depressants is a decrease
in sexual desire. Now,
what good does that do
you?
On the other hand, we
are blessed to be living in
the age ofViagra, Levitra
and Cialis. Those drugs
have saved.the sex lives
of many couples cursed
by that dreaded condi-
tion now commonly
referred to as ED. (So
much better than "impo-
tence," don't you think?)
The other big enemy of
desire in marriage is
anger. The reason is that
anger causes emotional
distance, which is just
what you don't need in
marriage, especially if
you want to have an
active sex life.
Other things besides
anger can cause or
contribute to emotional
distance in marriage (and
consequently torpedo
your sex life). Lack of
conversation, and the
associated boredom and
disconnection, is another
potential problem. Also,
chronic fatigue and over-
stress will do a number
on your romance. If you
want to be fulfilled in the
sex department, better
maintain both your body
and your relationship. If
either is worn out, there
won't be much action in
bed.
All of this can be a
non-issue when a couple
has approximately
similar levels of desire
and ability. But how often
does that happen?
Usually there's some
disparity in this depart-
ment. Bridging the gap
requires all the diploma-
cy and loving under-
standing you can muster.
Effectively handling the
reproductive, anger and
anxiety issues might be a
good start.
Good sex is like glue for
a couple. It's kind of
messy, but it helps you
stick to each other.

SALON i

CUTTING EDGE
Most women have grown accustomed
to having their hair shampooed just
before it is cut. Not only is this relaxing,
but it gives the stylist a chance to cut it
wet. However, not all stylists prefer to
cut wet hair. In fact, stylists who work
for fashion magazines and fashion
shows have indicated a preference for
cutting dry hair for some time now.
They do so in the belief that it is more
precise. They may have a point when!
you take into account the fact that
naturally curly hair can be four to ten
inches longer when it is wet. If you cut
curly hair while it is wet, you have to
take this factor into careful account.
Cutting curly hair when it is dry can
help some stylists judge its length more
accurately. At JONATHAN T' SALON,
Our stylists believe that hair design is
a creative process based on an
understanding of your needs achieved
through careful consultation with you.
We offer design cuts and s~yvlig
colors, and perms. Do you have holiday
gatherings to attend? Our updos
can help you look your best. Call
us at (561) 626-1829 to schedule an
appointment, or visit us at 4517 PGA
Blvd. Business hours are Mon., 10-4;
-Tues., Wed., Thur., 9-9; and Fri. and
Sat., 9-5.
.HINT: Dry hair also gives a truer
account of itself than wet hair in terms
of weight and texture.

Gardens celebrates

scholarship signing


BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Sports writer
PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Palm Beach Gardens
High School held a signing
ceremony for five athletes
who signed college athletic
scholarships on Nov. 14.
Softball players Brittany
Bowles, Kelsey Hensel and
Emily Roesch, and base-
ball players Taylor Motter
and Nick Rickles all signed
letters of intent to play
their sports in college.
Bowles, who signed with
the University of Georgia,
said she had not thought
about attending Georgia
when she started looking
at colleges.
"I planned on going to' a
different school. But when
I went to visit, I fell in love
with it," she said. "I asked
myself, 'How can I not go
here?' The school is amaz-
ing, the coach is amazing
and the girls are amazing.
It is so much different than
here. Before I started visit-
ing out-of-state schools, I
never thought about out-
of-state schools. Once I
started visiting those
schools, I realized there is
so much more out there."
Bowles, a pitcher, is com-
ing off a shoulder injury-
plagued junior season.
"I had a really deep
injury in my shoulder
blade and it affected my
pitching," she said. "I
worked with a trainer and
we worked on specific
areas of my arm. I am a lot
stronger now and my legs
got stronger, which
increased my velocity on
my pitches to 64-65 miles
per hour."
Bowles said the Georgia
coaches have told her she
can relax now that she has
made her decision.
"The Georgia coaches
have told me to be relaxed
and be yourself and work
hard to get to where you
want to be," she said.
Bowles looked at the Uni-
versity of Florida, Auburn
University, the University
of South Florida and
Louisiana State University.
Hernsel, who will attend
Virginia Tech, took a lot of
unofficial visits (visits her
family paid for them-
selves) to campuses


around the country to see
where she wanted to
attend college and play
softball.
"When I got to Virginia
Tech and looked around, it
felt like the right place to
be," she said. "The people
were very welcoming and
nice and the campus is
beautiful. I am ready for
the colder weather."
Hensel took her official
visit Nov. 9-10 during the
Florida State-Virginia Tech
football game.
"It was definitely freez-
ing, but that is something I
can get used to," she said.
Hensel played first base,
the outfield and catcher.
She has no favorite and felt
that was what the Tech
coaches liked about her.
"I don't niake any real
adjustments when switch-
ing from position to posi-
tion," she said. "It comes
natural to me now. I
caught when I was
younger and then pro-
ceeded to the outfield and
infield."
Hensel batted .333 last
year for the Gators. She
said it was important for
her to sign early.
"The pressure's off now
and I can just go out and
have fun," she said.
Roesch is headed to
Boston University in
Amherst, Mass.
"Boston is a great town
and it will be a great expe-
rience for me," she said of
her decision. "It is so far
away that it will be a com-
pletely new experience."
Roesch looked at North
Carolina State, the Univer-
sity of North Carolina, the
University of North Florida
and the University of
South Carolina before set-
tling on BU.
She is a shortstop and
has talked about the
adjustment to college soft-
ball with her coach at BU.
"He told me it was going
to be hard and that I would
have to work hard," she
said. "I like the way he
coaches. He is strict, but
he understands the game
and wants to work with his
players."
Roesch said she had not
contacted BU at all about
attending school there.
"They saw me in an

year.


exposure tournament over
the past summer in Col-
orado," she said. "We won
the tournament last sum-
mer and they saw me play-
ing for the Florida Gold
Lady Gators and they said
'we want you.'"
Motter is headed for
Coastal Carolina in Myrtle
Beach, S.C.
"I decided to go there
because I know I will get a
lot of playing time," he
said.
Motter, a shortstop,
looked into attending the
University of Tennessee
before deciding on CC.
"I am expecting to go in
and play right away. Their
shortstop is a junior and is
hoping to be drafted. He
said he will move to third
base if that doesn't hap-
pen," Motter said.
He is relieved the process
is over and happy that he
can concentrate on base-
ball this season.
"God, you have no idea,"
he said. "School is just
going to be relaxed now
and "ball is going to be
relaxed. Now I can'just go
out and play, as I don't
have to play for anything.
The recruiting process was
a long and agonizing one."
Motter said his parents
can easily come to Myrtle
Beach and see him play.
"The flight from Fort
Lauderdale to Myrtle
Beach is only $65, so they
already have that planned
out," he said.
Rickles will stay in Flori-
da and attend Stetson Uni-
versity in Deland. He liked
the fact Stetson is not too
close or too far from home.
"It is about three hours,
so that helped a little bit,"


he said.
Rickles is a catcher and
received 80 percent of a
full-ride scholarship to
attend Stetson.
"The coach guaranteed
meat least 50 games as a.
freshman and that I would
be in the lineup hitting-
wise, every day," he said.
'"They saw me play a little
in high school, but mostly
in summer baseball for the
All-America Prospects."
Rickles said summer play
was the key to his getting a
college scholarship. .
"You get to travel more
and the coaches don't have
season going, so that
makes it easier for them to
follow us," he said.
Rickles looked at Florida
State, Louisiana State,
Tulane and Clemson
before deciding on Stet-
son.
"Their baseball tradition
played into my decision,"
he said.
.Before he leaves Palm
Beach Gardens, Rickles has
one more goal he wants to
achieve.
. "Hopefully, we can win a
state championship. That is
about it," he said.
Jupiter High School had
three athletes sign scholar-
ships. They are Brooke
Kohler, volleyball, who will
attend Clemson University
in South Carolina, Alison
Templin, swimming, who
will attend the University of
Arkansas and Tyler Thomp-
son, who will attend the
University of Florida on a
baseball scholarship.
Quinard Jackson from the
Benjamin School signed to
play basketball at the Uni-
versity of North Carolina in
Asheville.

Pill man interception helps Dwyer win


BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Sports writer
PALM BEACH GARDENS
David Pittman was hop-
ing the end zone was just
up ahead of him.
Pittman intercepted a
Darrell Madrigal pass late
in the second quarter and
returned it 93-yards for a
touchdown to help Palm
Beach Gardens-based
William T. Dwyer to'a 30-17
win over Okeechobee in a
game played at Blum Stadi-
um in Palm Beach Gardens
last Friday night.
Dwyer coach Jack Daniels
said after the game, that
play sparked Dwyer to its
win, as the Panthers had
been flat through most of
the first half.
"There was no doubt that
was the turning point of the
game," Daniels said. David
did what he has done all
year, come up with the big
play."
Okeechobee took control
of the game early after a
Botched kick-off return to
open the game left them
deep in their own territory
at the 6-yard line. The Brah-
mans then proceeded to
move downfield behind the
Passing of Madrigal and the
running of Lonnie Pryor.
Pryor broke off a 25-yard
touchdown run to give


Okeechobee the early lead,
7-0.
That was the only score of
the first quarter that ended
with Dwyer on the move
toward the end zone.
Early in the second quar-
ter, quarterback Bradley
Wallace ran 1 yard for a
touchdown to tie the game
at 7-7.
A 25-yard completion
from Madrigal to Timmy
Williams set up a 37-yard
field goal by Skyler Cruz to
give the Brahmans back the
lead 10-7.
A Daniel Riddle 44-yard
field goal late in the first
half tied the game. Riddle
had to kick twice as his first
successful attempt of 39
yards was negated by an
illegal procedure penalty
on the Panthers.
That set tp the final
Brahman drive of the half
and Pittman's interception.
In the third quarter, nei-
ther team scored, setting up
a fast-paced final quarter.
Donald Russell scored at
2:42 of the third quarter on
a 4-yard run to give the
Panthers a 24-10 lead.
But the Brahmans came
back and added their final
score of the night at the 6:58
mark on a Madrigal pass to
Nate Pollard for 11 yards.
Cruz added the extra
point and the Dwyer lead

was cut to 24-17.
Dwyer ended the night's
scoring with another Wal-
lace 1-yard touchdown
sneak. The extra point
attempt by Riddle was
blocked and Dwyer had its
margin of victory, 30-17.
Russell ran for 151 yards
in the game and Wallace ran
for 105 yard and two touch-
downs, the second time the
pair have done that this
season, according to
Daniels.
The Panthers advanced
to face West Boca Raton at
Blum Field tonight in the
second round of the Class,
4A football championships.
Palm Beach Gardens
was eliminated by Boynton
Beach-based Park Vista in
the first round of the play-
offs, 12-10.
Gardens led late after a
John Hicks 20-yard field
goal gave them a 10-9 lead
with just 1:51 left on the
clock.
But Park Vista used some
divine intervention to help
secure the win, as a bank of
lights went out just as its
quarterback Eddie Sullivan
was running the ball. He
picked up 7 yards on that
play and added eight more
on the next.
The Gators were penal-
ized for a blow to the head
that was delivered to Sulli-

TALKING OVER TOYS Parade
From page 2
"We encourage all our 2,500 Loggerhead
Club & Marina members to join us at the
parade and participate with gifts for the
eighth annual 'On The Water' Toys for Tots
drive," said Raymond Graziotto, co-owner
of the Loggerhead Club & Marina brand.
Thousands of spectators and dozens of
decorated vessels of all shapes and sizes
participate in the annual boat parade.
Club members enter decorated vessels or
spend the evening watching the parade
and the Loggerhead Club & Marina travel-
ing fireworks display from the water on
their own vessels.
To contribute to the Toys for Tots Drive,
:. spectators wave flashlights when one of
the toy pickup fleet passes by. The boat
will stop and pick up donations of new,
unwrapped gifts for needy children in the
area.
Last year's local Toys for Tots Drive event
collected more than 9,000 toys for children
in need.
The second annual Waterfront Home-
owner's Competition will also be held,
with judging taking place in a number of
categories beginning Nov. 30 through
Dec.15.

Holidays smell, look sweet with a gift of floral design


BY SARAH STOVER
Staffwriter
PALM BEACH GARDENS Catch
them by surprise this holiday season
with a gift that will add a nice aroma
and decoration to their home.
If nothing at the shopping malls
seems right for a special someone on
your list, stop by a local florist, such as
Flower Kingdom or Earth, Wind and
Flowers, both in Palm Beach Gardens,
when looking for gifts.
Flower Kingdom offers an assort-
ment of flower arrangements, center-
pieces, wreaths and gift baskets. Earth,
Wind and Flowers is offering a special
price of $700 to create a customized
butterfly garden.
If the recipient is local and enjoys
nature, a butterfly garden might be the
perfect gift. Debbie Lee Ridge, owner
of Earth, Wind and Flowers, uses a
variety of approximately 20 plants,
including golden dew drops, passion
cines, fire bush and Dutchman's pipe,
to create a garden that will attract but-
terflies.


The only requirements are a mini-
mum of a 5 x 8-foot enmpr space on
the property, and that it is not in a
windy location. Ms. Ridge can make
the colors of the garden flow toward a
lighter or brighter color scheme,
depending on what the customer
wants, but all gardens will have some
yellows and oranges in them, she said.
The package includes the plants, a
ceramic fountain and 1,500 ladybugs
that act as natural pest control. The
pump for the fountain is included in
the package, said Ms. Ridge.
Butterflies are seen shortly after the
gardens are installed.
"I put one in the other day for a cus-
tomer and there were already butter-
flies by the next day," said Ms. Ridge.
"It is to me, the most tremendous
gift you can give," she said.
If the budget or recipient's space
does not allow for a butterfly garden,
other floral designs can still bring a
smile to someone on your list.
Flower Kingdom offers potted poin-
settas and Christmas cactus, but will
"dress up" any item, such as calla lilies


If nothing at the shopping malls seems right for a special some-
one on your list, stop by a local florist, such as Flower Kingdom
or Earth, Wind and Flowers, both in Palm Beach Gardens, when
looking for gifts.


or orchid plants, with ribbon, pine
cones, evergreens, holly arid contain-
ers for the holidays, said owner Da\id
Pathak.
The florist can use blue and white
designs for Hanukkah, he added.
Customers can also add a personal
touch to gifts by requesting certain
colors or flowers be used in the
designs, or bringing in a special con-
tainer they want the arrangement put
it in, said Mr. Pathak.
Looking for a special gift for a host
or hostess? Table centerpieces with
candles and tabletop Christmas trees
are always very popular, he said.
If flowers won't do the trick, Flower
Kingdom also offers gourmet goodie


baskets that delight the senses.
Options include the "Bountiful
Gourmet," which comes with fine
chocolates, cheeses, nuts, gourmet
cookies and crackers, among other
treats, and the "Java Giant," a coffee-
mug-shaped basket that comes loaded
with an assortment of coffees, espres-
sos and other treats.
Both of these fine floral businesses
offer something for everyone, whether
they are in town or away during the
holidays this season.

tion. Call Earth, Wind and Flowers at

Theater gears up for busy holiday schedule


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer

JUPITER The Maltz Theatre, a
professional regional theatre on
Indiantown Road in Jupiter, is offer-
ing a long list of holiday shows to
entertain the community this holi-
day season.
For a creative gift, theater-goers
might consider a four or five- play
package, priced from $103 to $199,
depending on the seats and the
plays.
The Maltz is also offering a "three
musical package" that includes
admittance to its headlining Decem-
ber show, "The Boyfriend," a musical
comedy set in the 1920s.
The theatre has managed to weave
in some special holiday events, inde-
pendent of their main performance
schedule, for those looking to stir
their spirits a bit early.
First, "A Rockapella Holiday," on
Nov. 23, consists of a five-man a
capella group performing Christmas
classics. Tickets are $35 for this med-
ley of holiday favorites. Theatre per-


sonnel described the group's carol-
ing as a "powerhouse" of holiday
cheer.
Following shortly thereafter is a
special performance by the Israel
Philharmonic String Quartet on Dec.
3.
This limited engagement is part of
the Maltz' international string quar-
tet series that brings classical virtu-
osos to the intimate Jupiter venue.
Tickets are $50. Patrons can also pur-
chase special VIP reception tickets
for $200, which includes the price of
the show.
Jennifer Sardone, Maltz marketing
director, said that proceeds will ben-
efit the Israel Philharmonic Orches-
tra.
For those theatre-goers bogged
down by all the holiday cheer, "Sec-
ond City's Dysfunctional Holiday
Revue" adds some much appreciated
satirical bite to the Maltz holiday
repertoire. The Dec. 9 show consists
of fast-paced sketches and imprOvi-
sation with some interactive comedy
tied in.
The following night, comedy takes


over the Maltz stage again, in the
form of "Sister's Christmas Cate-
chism." This holiday spoof features
some off-beat nun humor that the-
atre personnel say is a "treat for the
entire family."
Rounding out the theatre's holiday
bill is the Indian River Pops Orches-
tra, performing on Dec. 17. The event
is titled "Winter Wonderland," and
features some classic themes played
by a 60-piece orchestra. For tradi-
tional Christmas fare, and swooning
holiday melodies, local residents
should consider attending.
The Maltz Theatre has put together
a diverse schedule for December that
includes everything from classical
performances to holiday satire.
For anyone looking to take a break
from the holiday grind and spend
their time enjoying some live enter-
tainment, the Maltz Theatre offers a
premiere alternative.
For more information, or to pur-
chase a gift certificate, contact the
Maltz Theatre at (561. 7413-2666, or
visit the Web site at jupiterthe-
atre.org. Tickets are available online.

BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
PALM BEACH COUNTY After

"We feel confident that the Mattel
toys on shelves this holiday season are
some of the safest, most thoroughly
tested toys ever," says Mattel's Web
site.
Those with toys on their shopping
lists this holiday season, though,
should be aware of the recalls.
Toys such as Barbie Girls, U.B.
Funkeys, Puppy Grows & Knows your
Name and Hot Wheels Dragon Fire
track set, are topping "must-have holi-
day lists," according to a press release
sent out by Mattel on Oct. 1.
However, with recalls of toys such as
"Sarge" die cast toy cars, Go Diego Go
boat toys, various Barbie accessories


and various Fisher-Price Sesame
Street and Dora the Explorer items
over the past four months, due to a'
possibility of t he toys having excessive
lead levels, safety is undoubtedly on
parents' minds.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission recalls products "that
present a significant risk to con-
sumers, either because the product
may be defective or violates a manda-
tory standard issued by CPSC,"
according to the CPSC's Web site.
The CPSC has set a maximum regu-
latory level of 0.06 percent for the
amount of lead that can be present in
paint on a toy.
Although the press releases
announcing the recalls of the above-
mentioned toys did not disclose any
lead levels found in toy samples, each
release for those items stated there
had been no injuries or incidents
reported regarding the toys.
After the company learned some
toys had higher than the allowed level


of lead, it recalled other lys it felt
might also have higher levels and test-
ed them.
"Even with this massive testing pro-
gram and cautious approach to iden-
tifying non-compliant products,. we
have recalled, due to lead paint, less
than one half of 1 percent of the toys
that we've produced over thg last 12
months," Mattel's CEO Robert Eckert
told the Senate Committee on Appro-
priations Subcommittee on Financial
Services and General Government
and the subcommittee on commerce,
trade, and consumer protection of the
Committee on Energy and Commerce
in September.
To put it in perspective: Mattel and
its vendors make close to 800 million
products annually, but the small per-
centage was still too much for Mr.
Eckert, who is also a father of four
children.
"I'd rather that number was zero,"

A MAGICAL MOMENT

Jupiter before Christmas last year.


Recalls
From page 8
he said.
After tests this summer for lead lev-
els on some toys failed to comply with
the standards, Mattel investigated and
found that vendors or subcontractors
violated the company's "well-estab-
lished rules" or were careless in other
cases, according to Mr. Eckert's testi-
mony.
The toy company reviewed its three-
point safety check system and
strengthened it in response to what
they found during the investigation.
Prior to this summer's recalls, vendors
could use paint from one of Mattel's
Asia Pacific Sourcing's qualified paint
suppliers, or could buy from other
suppliers if they met additional rules.
Vendors could also use subcontrac-
tors to help them produce the items.
Samples of each toy produced were.
tested before the product could be
shipped and after certification, ven-
dors were not allowed to change loca-
tions, materials or components.
Following the investigation, the
check system was tweaked. Some of
the changes include: paint must now
only be purchased from a certified
paint supplier and must be re-tested
before it is used on toys. The paint on


samples of produced toys is tested for
lead, either by Mattel's laboratories or
laboratories certified by Mattel. The
company has also increased the fre-
quency of random, unannounced
inspections of its vendors and sub-
contractors. Also, any vendors that
use subcontractors must now test
samples of components from the sub-
contractor before using them.
Besides lead levels, other toys, such
as Doggie Day Care items, Polly Pock-
et play sets and Batman action fig-
ures, were recalled for magnets com-
ing loose. If children swallow more
than one magnet, the magnets can
attract and cause intestinal perfora-
tion or blockage, as stated on press
releases announcing recalled items.
Mattel has changed the design of
toys to lock the magnets in so they
cannot be easily detached.
When toys are recalled, parents usu-
ally receive a replacement toy or a
voucher for the price of the item,
according to Mattel's and the CSPC's
Web sites.

For more information, or to find out
which toys have been recalled, visit

Gardens shoppers flooded with options


BY IzzY KAPNICK
Staffwriter
PALM BEACH GARDENS With so
many new stores on the PGA corridor,
Palm Beach Gardens residents might
be feeling retail overload.
The Legacy Place and Downtown at
the Gardens shopping venues are in
full swing, so deciding where to buy
gifts for the kids isn't as easy as the
old trip to the Gardens Mall.
It seems "new urbanism" has invad-
ed the city. Retail mega-centers are
popping up everywhere, wedged
neatly next to integrated apartment
complexes all with a well-designed
color scheme.
Now, when someone exits east onto
PGA Boulevard from Interstate-95,
they are bombarded with a carefully
constructed spectacle: the hypnotic
orbs of the PGA/A1A bridge, shifting
through neon shades over a retail jun-
gle.
What does this mean for the holiday
shoppers who are unlikely to have
explored every cranny of the city's
center?
Hopefully, some basic background
will guide lost consumers through the


mire.
Legacy Place, 500,000-square-feet
of retail on the PGA corridor, is rela-
tively new on the block.
Many residents have yet to explore
its multitude of stores for holiday
shopping. Its main tenants include
electronics super-store Best Buy, a
Barnes & Noble bookstore and furni-
ture retailer Ethan Allen. The center
also has a Michael's carft store, a
Men's Wearhouse and a 25,000-
square-foot Total Wine store, a pre-
miere destination for those looking
for something to wash down that hol-
iday feast. Legacy Place's edge over
other retail venues is that busy shop-
pers can pull up to their store-of-
choice and park their gift wagon right
outside.
Downtown at the Gardens offers a
more laid-back shopping experience.
Chic shops line the walkways, and
holiday music from local high school
ensembles will fill the air.
Julie Kaminski, director of market-
ing at Downtown, described the cen-
ter.
"We have one-of-kind of shops,
instead of national chains. Our shop-
ping experience is very different from
that of a mall. People can find some-


thing here they can't find anywhere
else."
While there are corporate stores
that anchor the Downtown at the Gar-
dens center, specialty boutiques
make it a unique choice for those
looking to treat themselves to upscale
attire for the season. Fashion savvy
clothing boutiques include Zoey Wil-
low, Clould 10 and the Shoe Spa.
In addition, Downtown rents space
to 10 restaurants, which makes for an
easy wind-down after an afternoon or
evening of shopping.
So what about the granddaddy of
retail venues in Palm Beach Gardens,
the Gardens Mall?
With a million and a half square-
feet of stores, from anchors Nord-
strom's to Sears, the Gardens Mall
transformed North County when it
opened in 1988.
This year the Gardens Mall pres-
ents "The Enchanted Garden," an
arrangement of holiday d6cor and
botanicals to bedazzle even the most
jaded holiday shopper. With 12 deco-
rative trees, 4,000 florals and 20,000
twinkling holiday lights, "The
Enchanted Garden" promises to be
quite a sight. Santa arrived at the
Gardens Mall Nov. 17.

From page 11
The Love," his successful first album on
his own label.
'As much as I love the holidays, it's
hard to believe I've never recorded a
Christmas album," said Mr. Lawrence. "I
love everything about the holidays, from
shopping for presents to decorating the
house with my family. Christmas is huge
with the Lawrence household. Before
heading into the studio, I had each of my
daughters select one song for the project.
Skylar chose 'Here Comes Santa Claus'
and Keagan selected 'Frosty The Snow-
man.'"
Mr. Lawrence and his co-producer,
Julian King, brought a blend of country,
jazz and classic pop elements together to
capture all of the well-loved magic of
Christmas.
"I've been dreaming of recording a
Christmas CD for many, many years," he
said. "I've just been waiting for the timing
to be right. I looked for songs that were
warm as well as fun, and challenging to
sing. We pulled the best from all three
music traditions."
The disc features a mixture of seasonal
classics with three new songs. Some of
the classics include "White Christmas,"
"Let It Snow," "Have Yourself A Merry Lit-
tle Christmas" and "WinterWonderland."
The new numbers are "Something In The

Air," "Cold Beer" and the title cut, "All
Wrapped Up In Christmas."
"I really hope this CD will put people
in the spirit of the season," said Mr.
Lawrence. "It's a collection of songs that
I hand-selected to share with my fans,
and I hope it will become a favorite part
of their seasonal traditions."
The project was recorded during some
of the summer's hottest days.
"It was nearly 100 degrees outside
when we were recording," he explains.
"To set the mood, we put up a Christmas
tree in the studio, hung stockings filled
with candy on all of the musicians'
microphone stands, strung up some
twinkling lights and prepared for a
make-believe snow storm. For the
moment it felt like Christmas; at least
until we broke for lunch and walked out-
side."
The disc is a warm and heartfelt
immersion in the Christmas spirit from
Mr. Lawrence to his fans.
"With this CD," he said, "I can share
the holiday with all of my friends."
He has had an interesting year,
launching his own record label, cele-
brating his first No. 1 record in more
than 10 years, and garnering a Country
Music Awards nomination in the musi-
cal event category for "Find Out Who
Your Friends Are" featuring Tim McGraw
and Kenny Chesney. He proved to the
music community that he could com-
pete successfully on his own imprint.


Josh Groban "Noel"

Bringing Josh Groban's majestic yet
intimate voice to Christmas music is truly
a gift this holiday season.
The young adult contemporary star's
fourth studio album pairs traditional hol-
iday songs such as "Silent Night," with
contemporary ones, such as "I'll Be
Home For Christmas" and a new song,
"Thankful."
The CD features duets with country
music's Faith Hill and R&B's Brian McK-
night, plus music from the Mormon
Tabernacle Choir.
Mr. Groban is one ot contemporary
music's most popular performers and he
continues his hot streak with his first hol-
iday CD.

Mannheim Steamroller:
Christmas Song

Mannheim Steamroller, led by Chip
Davis, has a number of Christmas
albums under its belt.
This latest release is another quality
entry in the canon, featuring spirited
instrumental versions of classics such as
the disco-sounding "Frosty the Snow-
man" and a sweet piano rendition of
"HaveYourself a Merry Little Christmas."
Johnny Mathis provides guest-vocals
on the title track, and Olivia Newton-
John, sounding as sweet as ever, also
makes an appearance.

JUPITER- While home renovation
might not be at the top of anybody's
wish list, maybe it should be.
The holidays are a good time to
think about home renovation
because if you're going to spend it,
you might as well make it useful,
some business owners say.
"It is a great idea to spend money
for the family in the family home for
all to enjoy," said Josephine Briguglio,

You don't need stars to dance like one


BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Staff writer


TEQUESTA With the increasing
popularity of celebrity dancing shows
such as "Dancing With The Stars,"
ballroom dancing has becoming more
popular and so has taking dance les-
sons.
The Arthur Murray Dance Studio in
Tequesta is offering many specials
throughout the holiday for those sin-
gles and couples interested in learn-
ing to dance.
The studio, located at 130 N. U.S. I
in -the Fashion Mall, is seeing an
upswing of people, young and old,
coming in for dance lessons.
Through the end of December, the
studio is offering a free introductory
dance lesson to those who are inter-
ested in exploring the possibility of
learning to dance. The studio also
offers gift certificates that can be
given as holiday gifts.
Chuck Kirkpatrick opened the stu-
dio one year ago and has seen it grow
at a steady pace. He got started as an
instructor in the early 90s in Ohio.
"In 1988, my fiance and I were in
business and we went our own ways

after work. So we were looking for
something we could do together," he
said. She asked me one day what I
thought about ballroom dance and I
kept an open mind about it. I had
never danced at all, not in high school
or ever before.
"I said I would give it a try and she
called the Arthur Murray Studio in
Dayton, Ohio and absolutely loved it.
We got involved very heavily. We liked
the couple's thing and doing things
together. We started competing after
about six months in the novice divi-
sion. We competed for about three
years."
In the 90s when hip-hop got big, Mr.
Kirkpatrick and his wife were compet-
ing. He loved hip-hop and used it to
warm up for ballroom.
"The studio started receiving calls
from young people wanting to learn
hip-hop and none of the teachers
taught hip-hop," he said. "I said sure,
and so the studio started booking stu-
dents. We had 30 or so. Naturally, we
wanted to convert them to ballroom
and many of them did, and did not
want to change teachers. That is how I
got in teaching and loved it."
Mr. Kirkpatrick continued teaching


and performing through 1994, then
moved to South Georgia and there was
no ballroom there. So he and his wife
just danced once in a while.
He then moved to Florida and ran
another company, eventually owning
it. Mr. Kirkpatrick sold it in 2006 and
decided he would open his own stu-
dio, so he started building in Teques-
ta.
"This was to be my last business.
This is where I want to dance away the
rest of the years I have," he said.
Anyone interested in learning to
dance needs to bring one thing with
them to the studio, according to Mr.
Kirkpatrick.
"Guys and gals need to keep an
open mind. It is not as difficult as peo-
ple think," he said. "There are only so
many ways you can move in dance
and once you understand those basic
movements and how they relate to
one another, it is not that complicated
or as hard as people think."
Mr. Kirkpatrick said dancers do not
have to be athletic or be music- or
sports-minded.

Feng shui can eliminate


holiday stress


re you beginning to panic with the
holidays looming in the near
stance? Do you get weary just
thinking about holiday shopping,
entertaining, crowds and the expense?
Or, have you learned to proceed peace-
fully through the holiday season using
feng shui as your guide?
The holiday season does not need to
be hectic, harried or harassing. Ideally,
you should be able to enjoy the hustle
and bustle, while being in complete
control of yourself and your surround-
ings.
If just the thought of the holiday
season leaves you annoyed, aggravated
and stressed out, feng shuijust might be
your answer.

Seven steps to help reduce
holiday stress

1. Stop procrastinating, worrying and
fretting: begin now. In the world of feng
shui this would fall into the category of
un-cluttering. Now is the time to organ-
ize your thinking, develop your plans
and get the process rolling. Temporarily
put aside things that can wait until after
the holidays, so they don't silently nag
you for attention while you are busy
doing those things that are necessary to
have a happy, successful holiday season.
2. Make lists today or this weekend to
get on track and stay there. Create a gift
list and carry it with you so you can refer
to it at a moment's notice and purchase
items as you see them. You will save time.
You will also save money, because you
will be less likely to do impulse shopping.
As you check off each purchase, your
stress level will turn into a smile. Make a
food list and buy those extra things that
are not perishable over the next several
weeks. Place perishables on a "buy when
needed" list that includes the date
required.
3. Un-clutter your home now, so there
is ample room for holiday flowers,
garlands and decorations. Get rid of all of
the stacks of stuff you've accumulated
during the last 12 months. Don't just
move it. Actually look at it and either file
it, store it or get rid of it. If you haven't
used it in 12 months do you really need
to keep it? The more clutter-free your
home is, the more enjoyable and calm
the holidays will be.
4. Determine today, right now, the
single most important thing you want to
do or person you want to see that will
make your holidays perfect. Put this one
thing at the top of your to-do list, and
then do it first. Everything else should
take second place to that one thing. If
I do just that one thing and accom-

plish few others you will feel the holiday
season was a complete success and filled
with joy.
5. Fill your kitchen with aromas and
scents that fondly remind you of Christ-
mas past, such as home baked goods and
mulled cider or wine. They will provide
you a sense of love and security through
memories of family and friends gathered
together. It doesn't matter whether you
are a gourmet chef or never set foot in
the kitchen. What matters are the
feelings evoked by the fragrances. Use
scented candles if necessary to create the
feelings of abundance and cheer. Burn
those candles daily in a safe container.
6. Play the music of the season. Begin
today if you like. The holiday season is
filled with some of the most joyous
uplifting and encouraging music ever
composed, yet it is relegated to a few 30
days in our calendar year. Play it while
making lists, un-cluttering the house,
wrapping gifts, calling friends, entertain-
ing and preparing those special foods.
Allow thosewonderful sounds to
permeate your heart and soul. Stress is
nowhere to be found when the heart is
joyful.
7. Do something kind for yourself. So
often we think of everyone else during
this season, but forget to take care of
ourselves.You need to be nurtured and
receive love right along with all of those
other special people in your life. Buy
yourself a gift, spend a day at a day spa,
sit down and watch a favorite holiday
movie, read old-time holiday classic
stories to the children, take a long hot
shower. Do something that will bring you
joywhile the hectic holiday season races
by. -
Reflect on the goodness of your life,
meditate and be grateful for all things

Shopping
From page 14
on how to spend it.
For example, make a list of people
you want to give gifts to and a list of
potential gifts, with a maximum
amount to spend. Be aware .that
counting the number of people and
the price for each gift could be daunt-
ing.
Consider giving inexpensive gifts
such as a picture in a frame, that is
both sentimental and wanted.
Starting early is another way to save
money and could be the single most
important element.
"Being able to compare prices gives
the consumer an advantage," said the
Financial Planning Association Web
site. "Pre-holiday sales are helpful."
Shopping ahead, and not at the last
minute, stops impulse buying and
paying top price for items.
Consider shopping on Mondays
and Tuesday early in the morning
when there are fewer crowds. This will
allow for time and room to really
price and compare.
Making gifts such as baked goods or
crocheted clothing can be an afford-
able alternative.
"I think too much empahsis is on


the gifts, I think more money should
be spent on giving, said Cara Petrou,
a Jupiter resident. "Why not everyone
chip in and get an airline ticket for a
friend or family member? It's about
being together."
Nothing says the holidays quite like
children, but they can be the most
expensive of the bunch.
Creating a wish list throughout the
year and revisiting it often will allow
children to whittle down what they
want by the time the holidays roll
around.
The 'must have' items they previ-
ously wanted may just fall by the way-
side.
Purse strings getting tight? Give a
gift of service. Gifting something such
as baby-sitting or a night out is not
only helpful, but can be fun.
"Me and my friend have this tradi-
tion where we gift each other a night
out without the kids," said Mrs.
Petrou. "This is a great tradition,
because we commit to it, and the
money we would have spent on
something frivilous turns into time
spent with a friend."


Dance

those learning to dance as it has been
for some on "DancingWith The Stars,"
Mr. Kirkpatrick explained.
"They are under a little bit of a dif-
ferent environment because they have
limited time to put their dances
together," he said. "They go from the
quick step to doing a professional
dance in a couple of weeks time. So
they miss what we do in everyday
teaching, which is to make them com-
fortable with the dance itself, and the
footwork, style and posture. And we
are not trying to cram choreography
and a professional dance routine in a
mom who is learning to dance. We
teach them to dance first, feel com-
fortable with the dance and get com-
fortable in leading and following first.
You have to concentrate on the
basics."
And dancing is a great way to meet a
partner.
Mr. Kirkpatrick said there are four
major factors that have contributed to
the increase in the popularity of ball-
room dancing.
"One is the social aspect. I have had
students come to me and tell me it is
not about teaching people to dance.
Most people who come to ballroom
dancing are lacking something in
their lives. Dancing is the vehicle that
gives people friendship, romance,
exercise in their lives."


Mr. Kirkpatrick said a couple of his
students came to him as they were
leaving and thanked him for being in
Tequesta.
"She said, our life before you came
here was to go to work, come home,
eat dinner, watch television and then
go to bed. And then we would do the
same thing the next day," he said. "She
said, 'I can't tell you what a difference
this has made.'"
Coming soon to Arthur Murray
Dance Studio is an "Arthur's Kids" pro-
gram for students ages 10-18. Those
classes are forming now, so call the
studio for more information,
Mr. Kirkpatrick said you do not have
to be a couple to come to learn to
dance.
"We have a good mix of about half
couples and half singles that are look-
ing to meet someone who likes danc-
ing too," he said. "The world's greatest
romantics learned years ago that the
way to a woman's heart is to sweep her
across the dance floor. So the
romance part is driving the increased
attention in ballroom dancing."

Murray Dance Studio, call Annette at

present and past. Look to the future
and dare to dream.
Stress abounds during such a busy
time of the year. Everyone is in a hurry
and tends to have a short fuse, includ-
ing family members, friends and your
boss, so stress levels go up.
Eliminate stress for good making this
a hassle-free season for you by un-
cluttering both your surroundings and
thinking. Then make lists so you can be
organized, efficient and use your time
and money very effectively.


Following these few steps will make
your holidays less stressful and much
more joyful.

can enjoy."
People spend thousands of dollars
during the holiday on gadgets or
knickknacks, and some are starting to
think outside of the box to pool that
money as an investment into the
home.
"Husbands are getting creative and
instead of a piece of jewelry, an
update to an old kitchen could be
more useful," she said.
If the idea sounds too expensive,
experts say that some of the best
deals can be made during the holi-
days because contractors and busi-
nesses are less busy, and can provide
service more swiftly.
"If someone wanted to update their
kitchen with a new granite counter-
top the cost could be pretty minimal,
and it could be ready for the holi-
days," said Ms. Briguglio. "You can get
marble or granite for as little as $10
per square foot."
Another trend for holiday remodel-
ing at a minimal cost is lighting and
ceiling fixtures.
Transforming a room can be
accomplished simply by lighting. The


right lighting can create a cozy ambi-
ence and a more energy efficient
home.
"To get the home ready for the holi-
days lighting is a great addition," said
Pauline Glover from Leaf Lighting in
Juno Beach.
Fans have changed dramatically in
the last few years and are becoming
less of an eyesore and more like a
piece of art, Mrs. Glover said.
"My husband and I decided for our
anniversary that instead of a pair of
earrings or a bracelet we'd do some-
thing for the house," said Mrs. Glover.
"We put one in my master bedroom
and it added a lot of drama and is now
really sort of the focal point."
Using money as an investment dur-
ing the holidays, instead of settling
for something frivolous, is what some
are opting to do.
