Developer delays


donation payment

Lack of business plan is stumbling block


BY IzzY KAPNICK AND
MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writers
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS- Local con-
struction company
owner Dan Catalfumo is
delaying payment of a
donation to the Paragon
Foundation of the Palm
Beaches, citing the orga-
nization's lack of a plan
to implement the funds.


The foundation, a non-
profit organization, was
created to support small
businesses withiA the
biolife sciences field in
Palm Beach County's
African American com-
munity. Its' budget is 5
million. The organiza-
tion has collected
$950,000 in donations
since summer 2006, but
Mr. Catalfumo is holding
off on delivering his


$50,000 pledge until he
knows exactly where the
money is going.
Paragon was created, in
part, to persuade Palm
Beach County Commis-
sioners to vote to relocate
the Scripps Research
Institute in. northern
Palm Beach County.

City officials purchase rescue units


BY IZZY KAPNICK
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS Palm Beach Gar-
dens Fire Rescue officials
have purchased two new
ambulances to replace
weathered vehicles.
A pair of five-year-old
emergency vehicles had
become increasingly
problematic, and the Gar-
dens Fire Department
traded them in last week
for brand new rescue
units.
The new Medtec ambu-


lances cost $369,000 in
addition to $22,000 for
powered cots for patients
in the cabin. After trading
in the old vehicles, the
cost was lowered to
$321,000.
The 2007-08 budget pro-
vided for a maximum of
$371,000 for the units.
Last week, Fire Chief
Peter Bergel visited the
Palm Beach Gardens City
Council to announce the
purchase and offer some
background about the fire
department's fleet, which
is comprised of seven


ambulances.
"Looking forward to
what's inevitably going to
come in the next few
years, I think we're; going
to be more constrained in
our ability to buy new
equipment," said Council-
man Hal-Valeche after the
presentation. "I think
that's no surprise to any-
body. I know that things
wear out, but I hope we'll
be looking at ways to
extend the service life of
these and every other
vehicle in our fleet."
Chief Bergel responded,


"In the past, nothing got
serviced until we got
around to getting it serv-
iced. Everything was con-
tracted. Now, we've raised
the level of the servicing of
the vehicles to top-notch.
According to the chief,
the fleet's- ambulances
incur protracted damage
from idling between.runs.
Instead of turning the
ambulance off when pick-
ing up a patient, the driver
leaves the vehicle on,
which, over time, takes a

Variety show to focus on cinema

Dance students at the Benjamin School brought their
South American-inspired moves to Palm Beach Com-
munity College's Eissey Campus in Palm Beach Gar-
dens last year during their annual variety show. This
year students will perform numbers from the cinema.


NORTH PALM BEACH
- Students at the Ben-
jamin School will flex their
Hollywood muscles in
their latest production.
"CineMagic". .is the
theme for the school's 12th
annual variety show this
year, which will be held at
the Eissey Theater at Palm
Beach Community College
in Palm Beach Gardens on
Jan. 12. The event raises
money for Building A
Scholastic Heritage, a fund
that pays for school schol-
arships, technology


upgrades and items on
teachers' wish lists.
Each year's show has a
different theme. Sara Sali-
var, who chairs the per-
forming arts department
at Benjamin, is the artistic
director for the, perform-
ances and she suggests
ideas to the variety show
committee.
"I have always loved the
movies, so this year I want-
ed to do something the-
matically around the great
music from the movies,"
said Ms. Salivar.
The committee liked the
idea and ran with it.

PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS Eighty-eight per-
cent of Jews in Palm Beach
Gardens have no affilia-
tion with a place of wor-
ship, said Cantor Glenn
Sherman of Temple Beth-
El in West Palm Beach.
The 18-year Gardens
resident and longtime
cantor is aiming to reverse
that trend by opening the
Beth-El North Annex in
Palm Beach Gardens on
PGA Boulevard.
Members of the Jewish
community are spending
less time at prayer and
more time working or
savoring their leisure, he
says, and by offering con-
cise services driven by
congregational singing,
Cantor Sherman hopes to
draw in some of these busy
locals.
"We make our services a
little shorter. People's lives
are busier. They think they
have to choose between
attending service, and din-
ner and a movie. Well, why
can't it be both?" he asked.
Cantor Sherman was
eager to communicate the

Temple


From page A1 --
distinguishing qualities of
the new Friday and Satur-
day services.
A progressive conserva-
tive approach and the cel-
ebration of traditional
music set the new facility
apart from many local
temples.
"There's a reason Baskin
Robbins has 31 flavors," he
said. "We're offering a dif-
ferent a flavor here."
In addition to drawing
new members, Cantor
Sherman opened the
annex to serve members of
his West Palm Beach tem-
ple who've moved to Palm
Beach Gardens or have
stopped attending services
because of the long com-
mute.
"With rising gas prices
and traffic, many people
aren't going to drive 30
minutes to go to a religious
service," said Cantor Sher-
man. "We want to expand
our services to where our
congregates are."
Opening night on Dec.
21 was packed. Since then
BENA (the Beth El North
Annex, or the Hebrew
word for knowledge) has
attracted a few dozen resi-


dents each week to its
services, which feature tra-
ditional rabbinic teaching
with singing and musical
accompaniment.
"It's like a restaurant.
People show up the first
week, and, if you have a
good product, hopefully
they come back," said Can-
tor Sherman.
Rabbi Leonid Feldman
was invited to direct serv-
ices for BENA, with visits
from Cantor Norman
Brody and Rabbi Steven
Westman of West Palm
Beach.
The sometimes contro-
versial Rabbi Feldman is
the only conservative
rabbi in the U.S. to have
been born in the Soviet
Union. Before leaving the
U.S.S.R., he was jailed for
protesting the govern-
ment's denial of his exit
visa to Israel. He was
released shortly thereafter,
when his imprisonment
garnered attention from
Western journalists. The
government ultimately
admitted fault, claiming
there was a mistake in the
processing of his visa.
Rabbi Feldman currently


'They think they have to choose between
attending service and dinner and a movie.
Well, why can't it be both?"

Cantor Glenn Sherman
Temple Beth-El


serves as the spiritual
leader of Temple Beth El
and the head of the Ami-
Da Institute for training
Russian Jewish leaders.
Including Cantor Sher-
man and Rabbi Feldman,
BENA's clergy will offer 90
years of experience in spir-
itual guidance in the Gar-
dens area.
Rabbi Westman has
worked in Palm Beach Gar-
dens for 30 years now.
"These are well-respect-
ed (members of) the cler-
gy. They're well seasoned,
well-thought of. For me to
be serving with them is
unbelievable," Cantor
Sherman said.
With a 70-seat capacity,
BENA's setting is humble
compared with Beth El's
1,000 foot-wide worship-
ping space in West Palm,
but Cantor Sherman is


confident he's filling a
niche in the Gardens area.
With the vast majority of
the Gardens Jewish popu-
lation rarely attending
temple, the cantor hopes
that BENA will make it eas-
ier for residents to seek
spiritual guidance.
"Right now, we're not
addressing them. We're not
turning them on. (BENA) is
a way for us to go after the
unaffiliated population,"
he said.

BENA holds services Fri-
day night from 7-8 p.m.
and Saturday from 9:30-
11:30 a.m. It is located
directly off the Interstate-
95 exit on PGA Boulevard,
in the old Loehman's Plaza.

Bicyclist dies after accident

A 44-year-old man was killed on NewYear's Eve as he was
riding a bicycle -at the intersection of 10th Street and
Northlake Boulevard in Lake Park.
Floyd Hansen was riding his bike westbound on a pedes-
trian cross walk and West Palm Beach resident Charley
Napier was driving southbound on 10th Street when he
struck Mr. Hansen, according to a press release from the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
Mr. Hansen was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in
West Palm Beach; where he was pronounced dead.
At press time, it was not know if charges were pending
against Mr. Napier.

SINGER ISLAND

Boy catches half-ton bull shark

Aidan Medley, 12; caught a 551-pound, 9.58-foot-long
bull shark on an outing on a charter boat from the Sailfish
Marina in Singer Island.
Aidan was out on a half-day fishing trip on the charter
boat, the Thumper, a 45-foot Viking, when he made the
catch just north of the Palm Beach Inlet on Jan. 2.
"He did all the reeling, but he did have some assistance
(bringing it in). He did a great job," said Thumper's Capt.
Tony Rizzo.
It was not the first shark caught on the boat. Silkies, spin-
ners and hammerheads have been caught as well, he said.
While there are restrictions on certain species of sharks,
the bull shark doesn't have any, said Capt. Rizzo.
"In this case, the client decided they wanted to mount it.
It's expensive to do, so most people don't, and I release all
fish and sharks that are not going to be used for food (or
mounted)," he said.
While the shark weighs more than the current state
record, since Aidan did not bring it in himself, it cannot be
put in the record books, said Capt. Rizzo.
Calls to Maureen Murray, Aidan's mother, were not
,returned by press time.

five-year period.
His gift and the gifts of
other businessmen in the
area, including Mr. Catal-
fumo, helped persuade
commissioners to vote last
February to move Scripps
from its original construc-
tion site Mecca Farms,
in western Palm Beach
County to the Jupiter
site, and eventually to the
Briger Parcel in Palm
Beach Gardens.
Commission Chair-
woman Addie Greene ,was
the swing vote and the cre-
ation of this nonprofit to
help minorities won her
vote.
Many residents are
familiar with the Catalfu-
mo name. The Palm Beach
Gardens-based developer
has spearheaded projects
such as Legacy Place and
its new headquarters on
PGA Boulevard, which
hard to miss for those exit-
ing east on Interstate 95.
But Mr. Catalfumo says
he had humble begin-


nings.
"I started off fixing
shoes. I .believe in giving
people breaks and helping
small companies," he said.
"I did it because I believe
in minority participation,
small business and helping
the little guy."
Mr. Catalfumo says,
however, that without a
business plan and an
administrator to run the
day-to-day operations of
the Paragon Foundation,
he won't budge.
"How are they going to
mentor (these business-
es)? Are we going to give
loans out, help them with
their financials, introduce
them to insurance compa-
nies?" he,asked.
Keith James, chairman of
the Paragon Foundation's
board, concedes that the
organization's directors are
still brainstorming. Still,
he points to the $950,000
in funds collected from all
the other benefactors.
"He has very high-cal-


'We don't want this money to be dissipated
after the donor's five-year commitment. This
is a springboard for additional funding.'

Keith James
Chairman, Paragon Foundation


iber people on the board.
They're very experienced
business people, taking
the mission very, very seri-
ously. This should provide
some degree of confi-
dence, and help explain
why 95 percent of the
money (was collected),"
said Mr. James.
Mr. James added that the
board consists of volun-
teers who are "talented,
albeit busy people." Once
a president is hired and
takes over the day-to-day
foundation operation, the
rate of progress in devel-
oping a strategic plan will
increase significantly, he
said.
An administrator and
president should be hired
and ready to take over by
Jan. 22.
"We don't want this
money to be dissipated
after the donor's five-year
commitment. This is a
springboard for additional
funding," Mr. James said.
"We want it to be a legacy,
we're not interested in
writing a bunch of checks.
(Paragon) has to find ways
in which we can leverage
these dollars."


Mr. James is also helping
manage $3 million ear-
marked to boost local
biotech endeavors in
Jupiter as a member of
Jupiter's Economic Devel-
opment Board. He was
appointed to the board
Nov. 21.
Mr. Catalfumo suggested
that he bring in his own
consultants to help delin-
eate a plan. Catalfumo
construction worked close-
ly with five small business-
es to sub-contract work on
the new city hall project in
West Palm Beach off
Banyan Boulevard, intro-
ducing their owners to
insurance and bonding
companies to help them
cultivate relationships
within the industry.
"While he's telling you all
these nice things, none of
his representatives have
spoken to me directly
about this," Mr. James said.
"The (first time) I hear
about his concerns is when
a news reporter called me.
"My phone line is work-
ing," he continued. "If he
has all these wonderful
ideas, have him pick up
the phone and call me."

In September 2006, Mr.
Gibson, 23, and his friend,
Eddie Rutledge, 24, were
charged with an attempt-
ed burglary in Mr. Man-
narino's Palm Beach Gar-
dens neighborhood. When
police searched Mr. Gib-
son's van they found a
hammer, glass. cutting
tools, a pry bar and one
loaded 9 mm. Glock 27
handgun. Another
firearm, a Keltec 9 mm.,
was stashed behind a
spare tire, police reports
show.
Mr. Mannarino saw the
two hanging around his
neighbor's backyard dur-
ing the 2006 burglary
attempt. He was the pri-
mary witness in the case,
which was set to go to trial
the morning after he was
killed.
A copy of Mr. Gibson's


arrest record revealed that
he was apprehended and
charged with grand theft
of a firearm on July 4. The
following month, the
record shows, he was
taken into custody in a
retail theft case.
Mr. Gibson also has
been charged with dealing
in stolen property. He was
arrested in August for
driving on a suspended
license. Sheriff's office
records confirm that after
he refused to sign a cita-
tion, Gardens police
charged him with resist-
ing an officer.
Mr. Rutledge has been
in jail since April. He was
arrested for carrying a
concealed weapon last
spring. Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office records
reveal that his bond was
surrendered after the,


arrest, as a judge had
ordered that he refrain
from carrying firearms
while the burglary case
was open.
Though neither man
has been named a sus-
pect in the murder of Mr.
Mannarino, police con-
tinue to investigate any
possible connection to
the case.
Mr. Gibson and Mr.
Rutledge have no history
of inflicting physical
harm while committing a
crime, records show.
"We're investigating
some hot leads. It's been
tight-lipped because' the
investigation is still
open," said Sgt. Schnur.
In the next two weeks,,.
Sgt. Schnur said, the Gar--
dens Police department
will release a preliminary
case assessment.

Get over it


As a 30 plus year resident of the state of Florida, and a
South Florida resident for more than 22 years, I am getting
very tired of hearing things such as, "That's not the way we
did it up north" or "The service we received up north was
never like this."
We all know that these snowbirds are former residents of
New York (the city) or New Jersey, and have come to our
once very peaceful South Florida of their own free will. No
one dragged them here kicking and screaming to take up
permanent or part-time residency. If they wanted the type
of service they received up north, or they thought that.the
way they did things up, north were better, I have some
advice for them: PBIA, Amtrack or 1-95. All three have
means for traveling back up north.
Either use them, or get used to the "Florida" lifestyle. No
comebacks please about how you are adding to our tax
base or making our economy grow.
This Florida resident would be very happy to see it go
back to the state it was in prior to the invasion from the
north.

Social Security benefits taking long

I am a 58-year-old white male who was diagnosed with
polycystic kidney disease in 2003. I was told at that time I
would not get better and should slow down working.
Well, at that time I owned my own small business and
was a one-man show. In 2006 the doctors were right. By
that time, because of my disease, I couldn't regulate my
blood pressure, the cysts on my kidneys had grown to a
point where I gained 45 pounds and had a stroke, which
left me with partial use of my right leg and blind in my left
eye.
After a year of treatment and eye surgery in 2007, my eye.
did not get better.
In 2006, as I said, my doctors made me stop working. I
had to sell my business and quit. I have a family doctor, a
kidney doctor and eye specialist, and I had to hire a
lawyer, which will also costs me $5,000 out of my pocket.
More money than necessary is being spent to straighten
this situation out. All have been in charge of filling out a
mountain of paperwork'and writing letters explaining my
physical condition to Social Security trying to get my dis-
ability approved. I have had two denials so far,,,nd my,y
Scas is 8ittihg onmsome judge's Oesk ii, Mi mi waitihgfqr at
decision to be nade.
S I beong-to AARP'and in the November 2007 AARP maga-
zine, the headline on the front cover reads, "They Died
Waiting, Lost in Social Security Hell." The article is on page
10. I personally have talked to people who have waited
four years or more to get their benefits.
The ironic thing is that when you get it (Social Security
benefit), it is retroactive from when you-apply. Some peo-
ple have gotten $49,000 in one lump sum.
The problem is that by that time you have lost your
house, your car and everything else you worked all your
life for. Creditors, utilities, mortgage companies and gro-
cery stores don't let you live using IOUs until your money
shows up.
The real problem with all of this is, as I said, I am 58
years old; I have been working since I was 13. I have paid
into Social Security since I was 16 years old. I am not ask-
ing for welfare or a free handout,I want what's mine!
I paid into Social Security all of my life. As I just said, I
am not asking for a free handout, I only want what belongs
to me and what I have coming to me.
I am not an unwed mother on welfare with three kids
who do not know who their fathers are (notice I used plu;-
ral for fathers). In most cases there&is more than one not:
paying any support for their children.
I am not an illegal immigrant using the system to get
free medical benefits.
I am a citizen of the United States who has been paying


my share of taxes, on time, all my life, to help cover the
above. There are probably plenty more examples available,
but these are the two that most citizens of the United
States are most familiar with at the present time.
I am mad and for good reason. I want my money before I
get kicked out of my house, lose my car and can't buy gro-
ceries for me and my family.
Could you live for two to four years with ho income or
insurance for health care and prescriptions?
I have been spending $790 a month for health insurance
alone, which will soon end because it will be unaffordable
in the near future under these circumstances.
The only things I have to look forward to are dialysis and
a kidney transplant. Where is all that money going to come
from?
Read the AARP article. Let's start worrying about our
own United State citizens and taking care of us first.

Response to giving children drugs
is not a solution

My daughter is 12 years old, with ADHD. She was 10
months old when my mother noticed something different
about her. She would not play with any toy for more than a
few moments. I didn't know any different because she was
my first child. As the years went by, our troubles grew more
intense. When she entered a local private school, she was
almost expelled six weeks before the end of kindergarten.
SThe next year she went to public school, and we contin-
ued to have problems. She could not be tested until she
was 6.I finally succumbed to testing halfway through the
first grade.
To my embarrassment, she tested proof positive for
ADHD thanks to her teachers, her father, the doctor's
observation and me. She began taking Concerta, which is
very close to Ritalin. Something amazing happened; she
started learning.
Through the years, I have been criticized for my daugh-
ter's disability. I once had a psychology professor invite me
to be a volunteer and speak in his class.
In front of the class he proceeded to tell me that my
child's ADHD was because I was a mother who didn't pay
attention to my child, not that I had a child who lacked the
ability to pay attention.
Enraged, I sat up in my seat and politely defended my
daughter and myself. We read books as often as she would
sit through them. We learned how to add and subtract
using peas and carrots at the dinner table. My focus had to
make up for her lack.
There is a Web site called DailyStrength.org, and anyone
who would like to get. the advice of other people going
through the same struggles as I have, can go there for some
real support and encouragement, not the ignorant ranting
,.of some uneducated citizen who has never walked in the
shoes of a parent or child with ADHD.
Please go learn before you spurn. To all parents with
ADHD children, be proud of your children. They are
unique and if the medication works, ADHD children have
better self-esteem and have been proven to grow into bet-


ter adults when they succeed. But that would only be com-


ter adults when they succeed. But that would only be com-
mon sense.

Seen vs. saw

Whatever happened to the word saw? Every day on the
news or in public you hear most people saying, I seen it
happen," or "I seen the guy who did it run off."
Where did all these people learn the English language?
Surely there is something lacking in the education sys-
tem and also at home.
I saw this just lately on the news where a person I
believed was educated used the word "seen" describing
something he saw. May the word "saw" rest in peace. It is
dead.

Fireworks should be outlawed

If I were going to attack the United States, it would be on
NewYear's Eve when everyone is drunk and setting off fire-
works. Nobody would notice until the next day. We have
always set off fireworks. Prior to that we just fired our guns
in the air like many Third-World regimes do today. It has
been addressed how dangerous it is to fire guns into the
air.
When I was a child I liked fireworks. Now, as an adult, I
carry a gun everyday of my life. Fireworks are illegal except
for professionals.
Where does all the gunpowder go after the fireworks? It's
time that fireworks are outlawed.
Let's find a more mature way to celebrate New .Year's,
Christmas, July Forth and Wayne Huizenga's birthday.

Waterboarding is not torture

As an American I have one thing to say: why do we; have
to have a Congressional investigation into CIA tapes of tor-
ture that were destroyed?
Are the senators stupid?
Don't they realize that we are under attack?
People keep looking for a reason to prosecute someone
who is doing their job.
Waterboarding is not torture. It is a method of getting
information from someone who is willing to kill us. We are
in a war. This country is turning into a Third-World coun-
try.

Thank you to a stranger

Last week I was taking my son to a doctor's appointment.
We were both stressed out and in tears. I didn't have any
money, not even the $2 to pay the co-payment. A woman
in the office insisted I take $10. I was able to pay the co-
payment and also enjoy a Christmas dinner with the
money I had left over. This meant the world to me. I can
never express how much this meant to my son and me. I
want to thank this lady from the bottom of my heart.
I have since passed it forward.

Tax relief package rests


in voters' hands


John Adams said,
"Property is surely a
right of mankind as
re as liberty."
His words reflect the
principles that have guided
the Florida Legislature
through the process of
bringing property tax relief
to the people of our state.
The right to property is
essential to the American
dream. When that right is
threatened by unexpected,
unbearable spikes in
property taxes, relief must
be provided.
The Legislature passed a
comprehensive constitu-
tional amendment last year
that, if approved by voters
on Jan. 29, will provide that
relief.
One of the key provisions
in our relief package allows
homeowners to transfer
their Save, Our Homes tax
benefit to a new home. This
policy, called portability,
will spark Florida's econo-
my with'only minimal
impact on local govern-
ment. When one family
downsizes into a smaller
home that better meets
their needs, thanks to
portability, another family
can afford to move into
that home.
This policy eliminates
the "lock-in effect," which
has prevented homeown-
ers often seniors or
empty nesters from
moving into smaller homes
as their needs or lifestyles
changed.
Portability gives Floridi-
ans the freedom to choose
where to live and what sort
of home to buy, based on.


JEFF ATWATER
Senate president-designate

the needs of their families,
not on a failed tax policy.
The amendment also
doubles the homestead
exemption, providing an
additional $25,000 exemp-
tion for the value of
homestead property above
$50,000 (excluding school
taxes). This will allow the
tax benefit to keep pace
with the increased price of
housing. More than 94
percent of Florida home-
owners will enjoy tax relief
under the increased
exemption. Once approved
by the voters, this benefit
will provide relief on your
next tax bill. -
The proposed constitu-
tional amendment creates
a new exemption from
taxes on tangible personal
property of $25,000 and
eliminates the need for
businesses to file a return if
they have less than $25,000
in tangible personal
property. This change will
exempt more than a
million Floridians from this
tax, out of a total of 1.2


million who currently pay
it. Many Floridians actually
spent more money com-
plying with related paper-
work than they owed in
TPP taxes. This proposed
amendment will cut away
that red tape.
Small business owners,
second homeowners,
renters and others will
benefit from the fourth
component of the Legisla-
ture's tax relief plan, which
places a 10 percent cap on
assessments of non-
homestead properties.
Most non-homestead
property owners have
experienced "sticker shock"
when looking at their tax
bills in recent years. This
cap provides predictability
for all properties in Florida;
no longer will property
owners have to fear
unexpected, large assess-
ment spikes.
This legislation reflects
the testimony and ideas of
so many concerned voters
across Florida. Now the
choice is exactly where it
should be: in your hands.
On Jan. 29, you, the voter,
will have the opportunity
to approve this proposed
amendment and provide
much-needed property tax
relief in our state. The
American dream is alive
and well in Florida, and
this constitutional amend-
ment will ensure that
Floridians can continue
making that dream a reality
in their own lives.

Sen. JeffAtwater, R-North
Palm Beach, is senate
president-designate.

The will of the people


he will of the
people." What an
interesting concept.
The term describes a
bedrock principle of every
democratic society.
The translation of it, from
concept to reality in public
policy, requires individual
action by participant
voters.
The actions of the 2007
Legislature, as expressed in
the much-debated.Jan. 29
Constitutional amendment
vote, place this simple but
complex principle as the
next step up the staircase of
Florida's ongoing property
tax reform efforts.
The legislature has
basically said we decide for
you to decide.
In our democracy "the
people" are in charge of
their government through
elected officials acting on
their behalf. Only short-
term elected officials act
without feedback.
What if there is an
expressed public need but
not all citizens want it
delivered the same way?
Property tax reform
demands have been like
that. Most property owners
I've talked to think reform
through reduced taxes
(spending) is needed.
Reduced spending,
however, requires decisions
on who cuts what, how
much, where and when?
Last year, most reformers
agreed with cutting proper-
ty taxes and placing
permanent spending caps
on local governments.
However, many wanted
deeper cuts. The cry is now
not just for reform, but for
specific types and method-
ologies of reform.
A short year ago, many
were joyous to see "tax
reform" on the legislative
agenda and now oppose
one form of reform versus
another. One could say the
rubber has hit the road as
individuals and tax reform
groups begin to clearly see


MORGAN GILREATH
Volusia County
property appraiser


and define their own "devil
in the details" as tax reform
continues to evolve.
The American Revolution
began, in part, as a revolt
against unfair taxation from
England. The importance of
taxation is such that
creation of new taxes can
only be done through our
state constitution. There-
fore, significant changes to
constitutional systems
generally involve constitu-
tional amendments, only
approved by the expressed
will of the people.
Our own state Legislature
worked diligently through
two special sessions to pass
meaningful tax reform.
Much is being said by
many about the Jan. 29
amendment, both pro and
con. The "spin" is 'on.
Some say it doesn't do
enough, some say it does
too much, others say it
really isn't needed at all. It's
getting hard to figure who is
spinning what.
Some who were for it
before are against it now. I
think both citizens and
local governments sent a
lot of mixed signals to the
legislature. A lot of people
tell me they're confused.
The Jan. 29 amendment
offers four tax reform
solutions:
It creates "portability" of


the Save Our Homes
benefit, up to $500,000. You
will be able to move
without property tax
penalty, taking your SOH
benefit with you to the next
home. It applies retroac- .
tively to those who had the
exemption as of Jan. 1, 2007
and moved into another
home within two years.
Everyone with a home-
stead exemption will
receive a property tax cut of
roughly $295, as each
Florida resident owner
receives a second $25,000
exemption (applying after
$50,000 in value). This does
not apply to school taxes
(meaning the added
exemption is effectively a
little more than $15,000).
All non-homesteaded
properties (all other
properties) receive a SOH-
like value cap of 10 percent
per year. This limits
increases in taxable value
and therefore, taxes, much
like SOH does on homes,
just at a higher percentage.
All Florida businesses
receive a new $25,000
exemption on their tangible
personal property (busi-
ness machinery, furniture,
computers, equipment,
etc.). This exemption also
applies to mobile home
attachments on rented
land. This Will benefit all,
but have more impact on
small businesses.
The Florida Legislature
has laid out the tax reform
playing field and has given
the decision on what
happens to those bearing
the benefits (or the pain)
fipm the consequences.
'As we all exercise our
constitutional right to vote
on Jan. 29, Florida's first tax
reform measures will truly
reflect the will of the
people.

eo Durocher is often
quoted as saying,
"Nice guys don't win
ballgames." (He later
denied ever saying this.)
But this expression is
quoted often to justify
aggressive, rude, exploitive
and unethical business
practices. A surprisingly
large number of otherwise
intelligent business
leaders actually believe
this saying. This is espe-
cially prevalent in the
retail car business.
I'm a member of an,
organization called the "20
Group." This group of car
dealers (about 20, hence
the name) meets for three
days three times a year to
compare business prac-
tices and financial results.
Our members are from all
over the U.S. The majority
of the members think my
way of doing business is
not smart.
Most Florida dealers I
know don't understand or
agree with my business
practices.
This column is not a
forum to celebrate my
accomplishments or to try
to sell you a Toyota, but to
share my knowledge with
you about how to buy your
next car or have your car
serviced without being
taken advantage of.
With that said, I tell you


EARL STEWART
On Cars


that my Toyota dealership
sold more new Toyotas last
year than the other Toyota
dealerships in Palm Beach
County, one in West Palm
Beach and one in Delray
Beach.
Of course I'm proud of
that accomplishment, 33
years in the making. After
all, my dealership is in
Lake Park, which many of
you may not have even
heard of. I always mention
North Palm Beach in
mentioning my dealer-
ship's location because we
are on the city limit of
Lake Park and North Palm
Beach. Our population in
Lake Park in northern
county is much less than
that of West Palm Beach
and Delray. We just aren't
"supposed to" sell more
cars than the dealers from
the "big city."
Was it Will Rogers who
said, "It ain't braggin' if it's
so"? I'm not sure I agree
with that, and I always feel
a little funny about tooting.
my own horn. The reason
I'm writing about my
dealership's accomplish-
ment is not because of
what we did, but how we
did it.


We were able to
accomplish this truly
amazing feat by being
"nice guys" and we did it
in spite of what Leo
Durocher may or may not
have said. What most
other car dealers can't
understand is how we can
be so successful without
advertising the way they
do.
By that I mean we
virtually never advertise
cars, prices, special sale
events (once last year we
did advertise a sale on new
Priuses because we
temporarily had an
oversupply). If you have
seen my ads, you know
how I advertise. It's all
about my direct personal
access via my red phone,
my decrying the dealer fee
and calling for it to be,
made illegal, and telling
you that you will always be
treated with integrity,
respect and courtesy in my
dealership.
Our sales and service
practices are like our
advertising. We truly walk
the talk.
I have four red tele-
phoneslocated in the
service drive, customer
waiting lounge, show
room and body shop.
Beside the red phone is a
sign with m'y picture
saying, "The buck stops
here. If we have not
exceeded your expecta-
tions, pick up this red
phone and be directly
connected to me, the
owner."
*, These red phones ::
immediately ring my cell
phone, which I have with
me 24/7. (I turn it off when
I go to sleep at night.) I
invite all of my new
customers to a reception


every two months, speak
to them and give each one
my business card with my
.home telephone number.
We don't have secretaries
in my company and we
don't have voice mails.
Nobody, including me, has
their calls screened. In
fact, if the person you are
calling is out of the
dealership, the call is
directly connected to her
/his cell phone. My
instruction to all of my
employees is: "If the
customer thinks she/he is
right, take care of the
problem."
The important thing
about this philosophy is
not debating who is right.
The important thing is
what our customer
believes. Our motto is: "It's
what you do for your
customer when you don't
have to that is the true
measure of character... like
sticking up for somebody
who can't defend himself."
There is another reason
that I'm "bragging" in this
column. Other businesses,
and especially other car
dealers, are sitti~ig up and
taking notice. Hop fully,
we will see some of them
change their business
practices, such as dropping
the dealer fee and chang-
ing their bait and switch
advertising tactics.
If you're a car dealer
reading this column, give
me a call and let's talk. I
want to tell you how much
better you will do by
treating your customers
-,theway.your .mother. -
probably told you you
should.
Not only will your
business do better, but you
will sleep a lot better at
night.

City considers covers
for bus stops

At last week's Palm Beach
Gardens City Council meet-
ing, staff considered
installing shelters for Palm
Tran bus stops across the city.
NextMedia, a company
that owns and operates radio
stations and outdoor adver-
tising venues across the
country, visited the council to
persuade them to install its
prefabricated shelters.
Bruce Washburn, a repre-
sentative from NextMedia,
pointed out that advertising
on the bus stops would pay
for each shelter, which range
in price from $10,000 to
$40,000, depending on fea-
tures such as construction
materials, lighting and
garbage receptacles.
Yearly maintenance totals
$5,000, which, Mr. Washburn
said, would be covered by
advertising revenue as well.
Since the majority of the
construction cost would be
absorbed by NextMedia, the
council was less concerned
with the financials than it
was with aesthetics.
Mayor Joe Russo pointed
out that if the NextMedia bus
stops were installed, current
signage codes would have to
be changed to allow for off-
site advertising. That alter-
ation to the code would
prompt a major reconsidera-
tion of signage around the
city, the mayor said.
"For us to have this, we'd
have to amend the sign code.


We would also have to know
what this meant for the other
signage in the city, and how
much signage we would have
throughout the city that we
don't have now that the resi-
dents didn't want to begin
with," Mayor Russo said.
Currently, there are 120
Palm Tran bus stops in the
city, with fewer than 10 shel-
ters. In his presentation, Mr.
Washburn pointed out that
riders, particularly elderly
residents, avoid the use of the
current benches in the sum-
mer time because of oppres-
sive heat. On rainy days,
Palm Tran riders are
drenched, often seeking shel-
ter under a nearby building.
Mr. Washburn estimated
that if shelters were installed
at bus stops with the highest
riderships, the city might
consider installing about 15
of them.
"These things are nice, but
they are prefabricated. I don't
think they conform to the
look that we want to have as a
council here in Palm Beach
Gardens," added Council-
man HalValeche.
Mayor Russo considered
holding a special meeting
with residents to consider the
project.
"The feeling I have is we're
not ready for this," said
Mayor Russo. "Let's have a
discussion to find out where
there's a desperate need and,
if there is, let's address it."

Campus opens
newest exhibition

Palm Beach Community
College's gallery opened a
new exhibition this week fea-
turing a diverse portfolio of
female artists.
"Celebration of Diversity:
Women Arists," opened Jan. 8
with an evening artists'
reception.
The exhibit, located at the


Eissey Campus Gallery off
PGA Boulevard, features the
work of Tonya Clay, Dorothy
Grace Lemeh, Georgeta Fon-
dos and Gerbi Tsesarskaia.
The artists have vastly dif-
ferent backgrounds explor-
ing varying media. The com-
mon thread is the
exploration of the "emotional
and spiritual lives of
women," a press release said.
Ms. Clay's work employs a
surrealistic style, portraying
psychedelic landscapes with
twisted dimensions and a
distinct manipulation of
color and depth. Her more
experimental pieces include
3-D extensions of the canvas'
space, combining sculpture
with painting. The piece
"Breath Space" depicts an
abstracted wilderness with a
human hand extended out of
the canvas toward the viewer.
Ms. Fondos' style is more
minimal, using fabric and
mixed media to generate
alienating, frequently non-
representational figures. The
Moldovian artists' work is
often experimental and play-
ful with a dadaist edge.
Master potter Ms.
Tsesarskaia showcases her
collection of polished bowls,
vases and pouring vessels at
the gallery. Her pottery com-
bines traditional forms with
an organic, stylized appear-
ance of weathered rock.
In her work at the exhibi-
tion, Ms. Lemeh "explores
her African American her-
itage and women's body
image in her collage and
assemblage art," a press
release said.
Her paintings incorporate
multi-layered amalgams of
spontaneous spiraling tex-
tures contrasted with delib-
erate representational forms.
The exhibition will be open
through Feb. 22.

From page A8


it's a file that is saved in a
format that your intended
recipient can open. Usually
.jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet.
Some people's familiarity
with e-mail attachments
ends with the occasional
picture, but once the idea of
transferring files that way
becomes clear, a lot of
possibilities present them-
selves.
Let's go over the steps for
sending a file.
First, you need to know
where the file you-want to
send is on your computer
and what it's called. If you
have a document you want
to send, save it and pay
attention to where you save it
and what it's named. Then,
when you have your e-mail
program open, click "new
message" and begin to
compose your message.
Enter the recipient's e-mail
address, a comment in the
subject field and then click
the "attach" button.
Next, your computer will
give you some options. You
want to indicate to the
computer that you are
attaching a"file."
Click the appropriate
button and then navigate to
the location on your hard


drive where the file that you
want to send resides. (Just
check in the same folder that
you saved it and then click
the file.) Click OK and the file
name will be listed as an
attachment.
You can even send
multiple files just by repeat-
ing the procedure.
Remember, large files do
not always do well, so you
want to keep the attach-
ments small in size.
' Usually a good rule of
thumb is 100 kilobytes and
smaller for e-mail; this


should cover most office
documents (such as Word),
but can be a problem with a
file that is rich with graphics.
To check a file's size when
you go to attach it, right click
it and then click "properties."
The next window that opens
should tell you how big the
file is.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dalers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".'


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "MClt
am suggesting a change that "
will reward both you and your ex ectat
customers,
Virtually every car dealer of educa
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging It a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


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


stomers'
ons, level


dealer fee, but because I was
able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.


tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
aiton are I think of myself as the new
"sheriffP that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida'. In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart arlStewart Toyota

Aries-March 21-April 19
Allow the living brilliance of your own spirit to
awaken your highest dreams and enthusiasm. Get
in touch with the most burning desires in your
heart and manifest them in your life. Then find
ways to give back as you have been given. In the
giving, you receive 10 times more. This is the
supreme law. Wow. This year may be the best ever
for you.

extra energy from the past month and focus it on
the primary goals living in your heart and you will
see grand results. You know what you want. You
have the desire. Move it all forward. You are
always helping others. Let the universe help you
now. You must be open to receiving. Let nothing
hold you back.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Follow your own truth and allow others to follow
theirs. Do not be fooled by outer circumstances.
Set your priorities in order and take care of 'the
most important ones first. Refuse to let doubt, fear
or indecision block you. Words without action are
empty. Right action brings positive results. Now
turn that spark of hope into a forest fire of creativi-
ty. ,

Cancer-June 22-July 22'
What is your response to life in general? Be sure to
say thanks daily for all you have been given. Grati-
tude ensures that much more is on the way. We
are supposed to have plenty. This offsets lack,
which stems from fear in the mind. Since you are
ruled by the heart this will be easy for you to do.

History
From page BI


He explained that the
event is particularly signifi-
cant to Jupiter, because
hundreds of Black Semi-
noles played a key role in
two battles that occurred
locally, a fact that was
unknown until 1989.
"The history of the Black
Seminoles is a great history
that has been neglected in
the regular books," he said.
Mr. Procyk explained that
the Black Seminoles were
descendants of Northern
slaves who fled to freedom
in Florida in the late 1700s,
when Florida was ruled by
Spain. The Spaniards gave
them citizenship if they
converted, to Catholicism
and agreed to fight in the
militia.
At the Black Seminoles'
fort, near St. Augustine, the
former slaves learned Eng-
lish, writing and various
trades. However, when
Britain gained power over
Florida in 1763, they were
forced to either move with
the Spaniards to Cuba or the
Bahamas, or join the Semi-
noles in the interior swamps
of Florida. Most chose the
latter.
Mr. Procyk explained that
the former slaves brought
something very important
to the Seminoles: the gift of
fluency in English and Span-
ish, as well as the Indian
dialects of Hitichi and Mic-
cosukee; which they learned
quickly.
"They spoke four lan-
guages, and when the Semi-
nole wars came which
were the longest, bloodiest,
most costly Indian wars in
our history, costing more
than $30 million their
(language skills) were neces-
sary," he said. "The Blacks
were the teachers, the inter-
preters and the sense-bear-
ers who made all the deci-
sions for the red Indians
because the Indians could-
n't speak English, and the
whites couldn't speak the
(Indian dialects)."


While the seven-year sec-
ond Seminole War was the
longest-lasting war in the
United States, before the
Vietnam War, officials did
not begin to unearth the
Black Seminoles' history
until 1989, when archeolo-
gists discovered two of the
war's key battles were fought
on the Loxahatchee River.
Even the name Fort Laud-
erdale stemmed from the
troops at Riverbend Park.
Major William Lauderdale
set up camp in Riverbend
Park, but was told to move
south, and the trail he took
was named Military Trail.
Though many Seminole
Indians were forced to
move, 150 remained in the
Everglades after the wars
and still considered them-
selves the "unconquered
people."
Those original 150 have
now become the 2,800 to
3,000 Seminoles living in
Florida today, who received
$58 million from the federal
government and recently
purchased the Seminole
Hard Rock Cafes and Casi-
nos.
Meanwhile, the Black
Seminoles have yet to be
formally recognized by the
federal government, and
have filed a lawsuit for their
share in the $58 million.
"The Black Seminoles are
a forgotten people. Much of
South Florida's history start-
ed in Jupiter, yet many (resi-
dents) are completely illiter-
ate about local history," Mr.
Procyk said.
Presently, there is no his-
torical marker to indicate
the battles or the Indians
who fought in them.
"We looking into getting a
marker," said Kim McNeely,
director of recreation servic-
es for Riverbend Park, "We
think we are eligible and fit
the criteria which would
give it a National Historic
distinction and could make
us eligible for grant funding
and local support."


Ms. McNeeley recently
took over the position and
said that putting up a mark-
er came to her attention in
late October, however, this is
something Mr. Procyk has
been working to get for
years, he said.
"I want to honor those
who've been forgotten and
the fact that there is no
marker shows they are," said
Mr. Procyk. "They sacrificed
their lives... that should not
be in vain."
The event will also be part
memorial to Mr. Bryant,
who recently died.
In years past, he would
take water from the Loxa-
hatchee River and pour it
over the grounds of the bat-
tlefield at Riverbend Park to
remember his ancestors.
"It's called libation," said
Mr. Procyk. "We sprinkle
water from the Loxahatchee
River over the battlefield to
symbolize the blood and
tears of his ancestors who
fought and died."
A Seminole named
Catherine Hummingbird
Ramirez is expected to per-
form a "smoke purification"
ritual, actors will re-enact
the battles and a gun salute
and eulogy will be conduct-
ed to honor Mr. Bryant.
This will also be the first
year artifacts from St.
Augustine will be brought to
the event.
"We are borrowing arti-
facts from Fort Mose, the
first free black fort in St.
Augustine," said Prn Mur-
phy an associate at River-
bend Park. "We'll have his-
torical maps and more
educational opportunities
for people to learn about
this area's history."

The event is free and open
to all ages. It will be from 9
a.m.. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 13.
Riverbend Park is located off
Indiantown Road, 1/4 mile
west of Florida's Turnpike.

Mr. Procyk at (561) 744-3730.

Quick chicken meals can warm


the heart on cooler days


Hello, smart shoppers. I
hope you had a good
week.
Are you ready for some
delicious, good-for-you
meals? How about chicken in
the pot? It's a stew with whole
pieces of chicken and
vegetables in a rich broth.
Serve it with low-fat biscuits. I
use low-fat biscuit mix and
top them with a low-fat
butter substitute and a
drizzling of honey. It's
wonderful, satisfying and
easy to make; from the stove
to the table in less than 40
minutes
Another variation of this
recipe is chicken and
dtunplings.
Enjoy. See you next week.

CHICKEN IN THE POT
Serves 4

1 whole chicken, cut up
or any pieces you choose
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, sliced
2 or 3 stalks celery, cut
into chunks
5 carrots, thickly sliced
3 medium potatoes,
peeled and cut in half
Several sprigs fresh Italian
parsley, chopped, or 1
tablespoon dried
1/2 teaspoon black
pepper
2 shakes garlic powder
1 bay leaf (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
Water (about 4 cups)

To make this low fat, don't
use wings, or use only chicken

breasts.
Remove all visible skin and
fat from chicken and soak in
cold, salted water for at least
one hour.
Saute onions in oil until
golden, adding a little water if
necessary Rinse and drain
chicken; place in pot. Add
remaining ingredients. Water
should just cover the chicken
and vegetables.
Cover and cook until
potatoes are tender.When the
potatoes are done and the
chicken is cooked through,
taste and adjust seasonings.
Serve in deep soup bowls
over rice for a heart-warming
meal.

CHICKEN AND
DUMPLINGS
Follow base recipe for
chicken in the pot. Omit
potatoes and use only 3 cups
water. You can leave the
chicken on the bone or de-


bone it and cut it into chunks.
Cook until chicken is done
and vegetables are tender,
about 30 minutes.
Shake about 3 tablespoons
of flour and 1 cup water in a
jar. Thicken gravy until
desired consistency is
reached. Add more water if
necessary.
Serve with dumplings
(recipe follows).

DUMPLINGS
Serves 4
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking
powder
'1 large egg
2/3 cup milk (regular,
low fat or skim)
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
(optional)
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
2 cups chicken broth
(homemade, canned or
bouillon)

Sift dry ingredients
together. Add egg, milk, oil,
parsley, pepper and seeds.
Mix well; batter will be stiff.
In a separate pot, bring the
chicken broth to a boil. Drop
dumpling mixture by
tablespoons into boiling
broth. Lower heat and cover
tightly. Cook 18 minutes. Do
not raise cover during
cooking time and be sure to
keep that heat very low.
Note: When I'm making
chicken and dumplings I
never put the dumplings in
the same pot as the chicken

Arnica: a homeopathic first-aid remedy


lastic surgeons are
now recommending a
classic homeopathic
remedy to speed recovery
after cosmetic surgery, arnica
Montana, which has been
used medicinally in Europe
since the 16th century.
Arnica is endorsed as an
anti-inflammatory and
analgesic by the German
Commission E advisory panel
on herbal medicine.
Arnica works on the soft
tissues and blood vessels and
is applied topically as well as
taken internally.
The plant, arnica Montana,
is in the same family as
chamomile, dandelion,
echinacea and sunflower. Its
yellow, daisy-like flowers
always seem to face the sun.
Arnica grows on mountain
slopes around the world and
is popular with mountain
climbers to treat aching
muscles. Its' German name,
fall kraut (herb), evolved after
local people noticed that
mountain sheep nibbled on
arnica after they stumbled or
fell. When the German poet,
Goethe, recovered from a
serious injury caused by a fall,
he praised arnica for saving
his life.
Physician AndrewWeil


MARGOT BENNETT
Licensed nutritionist

includes arnica in his
discussion "A Homeopathic
Medicine Cabinet," (in the
Feb. 2004, edition o("Self
Healing" magazine). ,
"Arnica, in pellet form, is
useful when taken for
swelling and bruising, such as
from a recent fall or injury."
His colleague, Melanie
Chimes, a homeopathic
physician, suggests taking
arnica before and after
surgery (except eye surgery)
to minimize bleeding, pain
and swelling, and to hasten
recovery.
A 2002 Swiss study of
patients with moderate
osteoarthritis of the knee


reported significant improve-
ment of pain, stiffness and
dysftinction after applying
arnica gel topically for six
weeks.
When treated promptly,
black-and-blue marks have
sometimes disappeared
overnight, thanks to arnica's
quick healing action.
More recommendations for
using arnica can be found at
the Web site: www.herbal-
pharmacist.com and include:
athletic performance (sports
injuries), backaches, broken
bone support, bursitis, carpal
tunnel syndrome, eye
injury/strain, fibromyalgia,
gout, hemorrhoids, pregnan-
cy and delivery support,
rheumatoid arthritis and
varicose veins.
Homeopathic remedies,
such as arnica, are made from
carefully selected plants,
minerals and organic
ingredients and dispensed in
infinitesimal doses. Home-
opathy treats the whole
patient, not just symptoms,
and the remedies encourage
the body's own natural
healing processes to achieve
balance.
In clinical studies, homrneo-
pathic products have proven


to be free of harmful side
effects and are strictly
regulated by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration.
Homeopathic practitioners
have kept careful records for
centuries, and they point to
arnica as a remedy of choice
for sudden blows of all kinds,
where the skin is not broken,
states A.C. Gordon Ross in his
book, "Arnica, the Amazing
Healer."
This book is published in
Great Britian, where the
queen has her own private
homeopathic physician in
attendance.
It's no wonder that people
all over the world keep arnica
on hand at home or away just
in case.

Get the house ready


for puppy, kitten


O K, you've done it.
You've gotten a new
puppy or kitten.
Congratulations.
Here are some tips on
puppy proofing your house.
Evaluate.the house.
Do you have special items
that are fragile or irreplace-
able because of sentimental
value? Put them away.
Puppy-proofing means to
have all items of value out of
reach, as well as household
items that you want kept
intact, such as shoes, home
accessories, books or
magazines.


Do the same with items
that could be a safety risk,
such as electric cords.
Make sure there are no
household cleaners or
bleach, etc. on the floors.
Also think about dental floss,
yarn, toilet brushes, trash
containers, coins or candy
bn the floor from the kids or
grandkids.
Puppies are known to
pretty much put anything in
their mouths. That is part of
growing up. Just like kids,
they try to find out if an item

SALON

CONDITIONED
RESPONSE
While conditioner cannot undo hair
damage, it can improve hair's
appearance. Conditioning coats and
moisturizes the hair cuticles, which
makes hair look smoother, healthier,
stronger, and shinier. According to
conventional wisdom,he thicker and
curlier your hair, the heavier your
conditioner should be so that its coats
properly. If you have fine hair, it is best
to use a volumizing conditioner.
Conditioners with silicone work best
on thicker, coarser, or curlier hair, but
only seem to leave an oil slick on fine
hair. As far as leave-in conditioners are
concerned, they work well on
damaged and damage-prone hair
because they add moisture to hair with
less of the friction that rinse-out
conditioners bring to hair.
The natural elements and hair coloring
and perming can weaken your hair and
make it look dull. Using a conditioner
can nurture your hair and restore
its beauty and shine. January is
International Quality of Life Month.
Call JONATHAN T' SALON, at (561)
626-1829 to schedule an'appointment
for a haircut. A stylist will recommend
a haircut based on your facial
construction, hair texture and color,
and preferences. Each haircut
includes a shampoo and conditioning.
While you're here, pick up an i-bella
hydrating conditioner or intensive
nourishing treatment. We are located
at 4517 PGA Blvd. Business hours are
Mon., 10-4; Tues., Wed., Thur., 9-9;
and Fri. and Sat., 9-5.
P.S.: When hair cuticles are dry, they
tend to curl upward like the dried-out
shingles on a roof. They are also rough
and rigid.


Living with bipolar disorder


Bipolar disorder, what
used to be called
manic depression,
directly affects between 5
percent and 8 percent of the
population. This is not a
small group and, consider-
ing how disruptive bipolar
disorder is to the lives of
those who suffer from it, as
well as those who live with
and love them, it's a good
thing we're making mean-
ingful progress toward
identifying the causes of
and treatments for it.

A genetic basis

There is a strong genetic
component in BD, since 50
percent of people with the
syndrome have relatives
with similar mood fluctua-
tions. Among identical
twins the concordance rate
is between 60 percent and
80 percent, among fraternal
twins, only 20 percent. If
both parents have the
disorder, their child's
chance of developing it is 75
percent.
But finding the genetic
basis is not simple. No
single gene appears to be
the culprit. It probably.
involves combinations of
genes or chromosomes in
interaction. And this
appears to vary from family
to family.

Variable symptoms

There are two main
patterns of BD. Bipolar I is
the most familiar, typified
by months-long periods of
depression and mania
separated by periods of
normal mood.
Bipolar II is harder to
diagnose because the manic
phase is less pronounced
and more easily denied or
disguised, since it's less
dramatic. This type of
bipolar illness is often
misdiagnosed as uni-polar
depression and treated
inappropriately.
Some people cycle faster
between moods or, worst of
all, endure a mixed state of
agitated depression. It's not


HUGH LEAVELL

hard to imagine the torture
involved in a hyperactive
state of despondency.
Suicide is a very real risk,
especially with this symp-
tom pattern.
A final group includes
those with less obvious
and dramatic mood
swings who, while never
losing their grip on reality,
nevertheless cycle from
despondency and lethargy
to optimism and engage-
ment, all for biological
reasons.
Usually diagnosed in
young adults, symptoms
can appear much earlier.
In fact, because BD in
children resembles ADHD
(hyperactivity, distractibil-
ity and impulsiveness), it
is sometimes diagnosed as
such.

Treatment issues

The good news, apart
from the progress being
made in genetic research, is
that BD is readily treatable
with good success using the
appropriate drugs. Mania
and depression are associ-
ated with over-or under-
activity of neural responses
in the brain, specifically in
the frontal cortex, the
amygdala and the hip-
pocampus.
All of the drugs used to
treat this condition affect
neural transmission by
norepinephrine, serotonin
or both. The most common
drug used is Lithium
carbonate, often used in


combination with an anti-
convulsant such as
Depakote and Neurontin,
not because of any fear of
convulsions, but simply
because these drugs have
proven to be effective
mood stabilizers.
Sometimes anti-convul-
sants are used alone, or in
combination with an anti-
depressant or tranquilizer,
given for immediate
calming and removed soon
after.
One of the most difficult
challenges in treatment is
getting the individual to
take the medications.
Taken correctly, mood
stabilizers can suppress
mood swings, sometimes
completely, for years. But
they have side effects that
can be unpleasant. Also, a
manic patient may be
hesitant to give up the
euphoric state of boundless
energy and creativity they
feel when on the upswing.
A depressed person often
just doesn't care.
Both depression and
mania are difficult for
family members to live
with. Consequently,
bipolar patients tend to
have strained relationships,
which can make their lives
even less stable.
For this reason, and also
because a more closely
regulated and planned life
can help eliminate cyclical
mood swings, family
psychotherapy is indicated
in addition to medication
management.

for wrestling bash


By ROB SHELBURNE
Sports writer
BREVARD COUNTY -
Taking a page from the
National Hockey League,
the newly formed World
Wrestling Association
debuts Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. with
"Bash at the Ballpark," a
star-studded, outdoor
wrestling show at the 4,500-
seat Cocoa Expo Stadium.
Earlier this month, the
NHL's Buffalo Sabres and
Pittsburgh Penguins thrilled
a crowd of 71,000 at Ralph
Wilson Stadium in Buffalo,
N.Y. to a one-of-a-kind out-
door hockey game won by


the Penguins 2-1 in an over-
time shootout.
SWhile next week's "Bash"
will be hard-pressed to
duplicate the wintry condi-
tions fans encountered in
western New York, it is sure
to provide the same level of
outdoor excitement for pro
wrestling devotees.
"We're really looking for-
ward to this event," said
WWA president and founder
Mike Richman, whose pre-
vious "Mayhem in Mel-
bourne" and "Mayhem in
Melbourne II" helped whet
Brevard's appetite for cham-
pionship wrestling. "Our

Luxury cars to be on display


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

/PALM BEACH COUNTY
- On Jan. 26, car enthusi-
asts will gather along Flager
Drive in West Palm Beach
for Supercar Weekend.
Supercar owners from
around the world have been
invited to participate in this
one-day event. Some of the
featured cars that will be on
display include the 251-
mph Bugatti Veyron, the
new 2008 Rolls Royce phan-
tom drop head coup, the
classic 1971 Lamborghini
Miura and the 1967 Ford J5
Lemans racing car.
The term "supercar" was
coined in the 1960s, and
includes vehicles that are


hand-made, tailored and
designed to push the limits
of speed, but often, not
profitable to the manufac-
turers.
Hundreds of privately
owned supercars, vintage
racecars and mega yachts
will be on display.
"We are so excited to bring
the event to the public this
year," said John Temerian,
Supercar weekend organiz-
er. "The event originally
started as a boutique event
tailored to collectors and
connoisseurs and has now
become a platform for both
collectors and luxury pur-
veyors to showcase new
technology, designs and
prototypes."

Ocean update from Lake Worth to Jupiter


On a recent fishing
trip, a good friend
reminded me why
it is so important to get out
and enjoy the ocean.
His simple statement
was, "More people should
concentrate on making
memories versus sitting in
front of the television."
I cannot remember what
happened last season on
any television show, but I
can tell stories, for days on
end, about the times my
daughter and I have
shared seeing a few of the
amazing sights on the
water.
Go out and find some
memories for yourself this
week.
Offshore report: The
preliminary swell and


ROB FIELDING
Fishing Columnist
wind forecasts look very
good for getting out this
weekend. Winds should
stay less than 10 knots and
seas below 4 feet. The
fishing throughout the
region has been spotty for


the past week due to the
wind and surf conditions.
Activity reports are hard
to come by, as most vessels
have not ventured out.
Those that are going out
have reported a decent
sailfish bite on live goggle
eye and a few bites while
trolling.
The kingfish, mackerel,
bonito and dolphin should
start feeding as the seas
calm and give way to
clearer conditions. A close
friend was out prior to the
latest cold front and
reported a good snapper
bite in 130 feet of water
drifting over several
wrecks.
The best advice I have is
to set up like it is Novem-
ber, due to the warmer-
than-usual water tempera-


tures, and be prepared to
move frequently. Trolling is
likely your best bet, as it
will allow you to cover the
most ground.
Look for birds diving on
baits. This is, by far, is your
best indicator of fish.
Inshore report: Fishing
the beaches, jetties and
piers offers Spanish
mackerel, bluefish, small
kingfish and the occasion-
al cobia passing by. If you
like battling big jack
crevalle, this is your time
of year.
On Jan. 5, several
schools of fish were on the
beaches numbering the
thousands. The jetties are
also loaded with jacks, and

Change scoring


system to make


golf more popular


very other January,
the U.S. Golf
Association revises
the rules of golf.
Today I would like to
add my own set of rules for
our game.
According to recent
statistics from the Nation-
al Golf Foundation, our
game is not growing as we
had hoped. In fact, we are
seeing more golfers
leaving the game than
coming to it. With my new
rules, I hope to stop this
downward spiral and
make our game more
appealing to the masses.
Golf is the only major
sport where the highest
score does not win. I
believe that to be competi-
tive with our other favorite
sports, we need to adjust
our scoring methods. We
need higher scores, not
lower. We Americans seem
to despise low scores.
For instance, take a look
at how popular soccer is
here. I rest my case.
My new rules for golf
will get rid of our tradi-
tional system of counting
the number of times we
hit the ball and adding ,
strokes to that when we do
something wrong.
With my rules, the
highest score wins! You'll
still need to count strokes,
but only points awarded
for playing the hole will be
counted.
, If you arrive at the
course at least 30 minutes
before your scheduled tee
time, give yourself a point.
If you hit a few balls or
practice a putt or two
before heading to the first
tee, you get a bonus point.
Arrive at the first tee with
more than 5 minutes to
spare before you're
scheduled to tee off and
you've earned another
point.
You haven't even hit the
first ball and you have the
potentialto be three
points ahead of your lazy
partners. There's nothing
like being rewarded for
being punctual.
When it's your turn to
take the tee, if you already
have your club selected,
and a ball and tee in hand,
give yourself another
point. I love ready golf
If you do not tee your
ball up in front of the tee
markers, you're entitled to
a point. Take fewer than
two practice swings and
you'll be rewarded yet
another.
If your drive lands in the
fairway, you get a point.
Longest drive in the
fairway in your group gets
you a bonus point. If you
hit the green in regulation,
that's another two points.
Miss, but get on in few
enough strokes to have a
put for par, and you've
earned a point.
Of course, there have to
be penalties for those bad
shots. With my rules,
instead of adding strokes,
you simply subtract
points. Hit a ball out-of-
bounds and you simply
place the ball where it

barian.
The main event will fea-

went out, and subtract a
point. You may even get
that point back with a
great recovery and a putt
for par.
A ball hit into a water
hazard earns no point
penalty. Why? Because you
just lost that expensive
ball on the course. That is
penalty enough!
We've all had those
times when our best drive
landed in an un-repaired
or un-sanded divot. Not
an easy shot and pretty
crummy luck. With my
rules, if you advance the
ball to within 20 yards of
the green from that line,
you get a bonus point. Hit
the green with the shot,
and you get another!
Now to make sure that
no one else gets those
bonus points, golfers will
be happy to fill in their
divots. The same goes on
the green when putting
over ball marks. If you
have a ball mark in your
way and your ball hits it
and still goes in, you've
earned a bonus point.
Again, you'll be likely to fix
more than one of those
nasty scars just to keep
anyone else from.picking
up that same bonus.
We all hate bunker
shots. How many times
have you taken two or
three to get the ball out of
one of them? With my new
rules, you get a bonus
point for every sand' saVei'-
This Should encourage
you to practice those shots
and work on that short
game a little.
Anyone seen leaving the
bunker and not raking it;
will lose a point from his
or her score. Those things
are tough enough already.
At the end of the day,
you'll find yourself adding
points and winding up
with a score that resem-
bles a triple-overtime NBA
All-Star game score. That
should make everyone
happy.
Now, go apply my new
rules, or even make a few
up yourself, and see if we
can better enjoy our great
game and bring a few
more new golfers along for
the ride.
Just remember the
batteries for the calculator.
