SEE PONCE, A18 X Each Tuesday, a limousine rolls up to James Ponces home in West Palm Beachs Northwood Hills neighborhood to whisk him away to work as a tour guide at The Breakers. Mr. Ponce is 97.And his followers know they can count on him to regale them with tales of the fabled Palm Beach resort. If anyone knows the inside story of The Breakers, and of Palm Beach, its Mr. Ponce. His relatives descended from the family of Juan Ponce de Leon, whom history books say in the 16th century sought the Fountain of Youth near St. Augustine. His own forebears came to nations oldest city two centuries after that and the family stayed put.

Concussion Treatment Center 561-841-KIDS In the event of a serious injury, seek emergency medical attention by calling 911, or visit the nearest Emergency Department HEALTHY LIVINGHow to keep your cool when that teenager is melting downAline: ŽMom, weve got to go to the mall and get those new shoes for the dance tonight. Hurry! The team is meeting at six at Jessies house to get ready. If we dont leave now, we wont have time. Mom: You cant be serious! Theres no way Im going out in Friday rush hour traf-fic. You have other shoes. Besides, Ill be late for my dinner plans.Ž Aline: Mom! Dont do this to me! My shoes look stupid on me. You promised me! Youre going to ruin my night. Please! Were wasting time!Ž Mom: I never promised. I never seem to do enough for you.Ž Aline: You wont be late if we leave right now. All you ever do is guilt-trip me about everything you do for me. Why did you even have me since you hate me so much?Ž Mom: Fine, you win. Lets go. I hope youre happy. You never see my side. You treat me like trash.Ž Does the above scenario sound the least bit familiar? Have we ever found ourselves helplessly embroiled in an escalating, no-win drama with our teenagers? Have we ever found ourselves sheepishly answering to a 16-year-old? Or, worse yet, behaving just as childishly in response? Dont answer the question. But certainly, the topic begs us to reconsider the emotional toll of raising challeng-ing teenagers, and steps we can take to maintain our equilibrium as we navigate the daunting (but, undoubtedably, reward-ing) path of guiding our adolescents on the journey towards adulthood. The above dialogue was culled from a vignette in Getting to Calm,Ž a highly regarded parenting guide written by Drs. Laura Kastner and Jennifer Wyatt. These authors are quite knowledgeable and have clearly seen it all.Ž They offer a supportive, down-to-earth approach to parenting, pro-viding tremendous insight into the impact of adolescent physiological and brain devel-opment on adolescent behavior. The authors are quick to explain that the emotional reactivity, impulsivity, and risk taking of the teen years are directly associ-ated with the neural remodeling process that begins around 12 or 13 years of age. Technol-ogy has allowed us to track brain wiring and observe how the emotional centers of teens brains can hijack their thinking process under certain circumstances.Ž Its a proven fact that during highly aroused or stressful circum-stances, teenagers may not be able to access their capacities to reason appropriately or to rein in their emotions. Additionally, some teens are more prone to engage in risky, impulsive behaviors „ largely influenced by their unique personalities and temperament, family and social environments and complex circumstances of life.When we understand that the brains of teens are still developing, we should hopefully be in a better position to raise an emotion-ally healthy, well functioning young person. While, as parents, we should hold adolescents accountable for their missteps, we should also remain cognizant about the realistic limits to their emotional capabilities. We should take care not to harshly judge their actions or worry that our children are helplessly incorrigible. This will be the time where OUR actions can largely impact the outcome of our childrens character development. Further studies of the human brain also highlight why adults, as well, may lose their cool at volatile times. Just as happens with our children, situations of fear, anxiety or anger can derail the reasoning ability of even the most mature adults. When we attempt to reasonŽ with our children while were simultaneously fueled by highly charged emotions, all bets are off about the outcome.The prevailing message of Getting to CalmŽ is the vital importance of parents attempting to take charge of their own emo-tions so theyre not only able to effectively navigate their familys latest challenge but to also serve as instructive role models. Parents are encouraged to lead in heading off esca-lating spirals, to encourage self-reflection and to then incorporate effective techniques (that allow teens to see where they went off track and to ultimately better develop the reasoning capacity of their brains). The authors also set forth the CALM technique that has proven to be very helpful:First, say the word CALMŽ to yourself and then follow these steps:C „ Cool down (self-soothe; control yourself, without trying to control anyone else.) A „ Assess options (Consider: What are the issues? Would it be better to keep talking or postpone until everyone calms down?Ž) L „ Listen with empathy (Without any butsŽ) M „ Make a plan (Consider ways to handle the meltdown and move forward).The purpose of the above strategy is, of course, to help parents calm their emotions and to access their own capacity to reason and engage. Its important to note that some families are facing serious challenges not addressed in the scope of this book. In those instances where young people are struggling with serious clinical issues such as depression, crippling anxiety, eating disorders or sub-stance abuse, families should seek immedi-ate professional guidance. When the going gets rough, its hard not to take our teens ornery behavior person-ally. It may be difficult to believe we can maintain close relationships with our teens when faced with their criticism and accusa-tions. When they threaten us, and we dont budge, its not uncommon to worry that weve irreparably damaged the relationship. We may be strongly tempted to look the other way „or to give in to their demands „ so we can restore the peace. As Kastner and Wyatt conclude: By staying level-headed, credible, and connect-ed with our kids, we enhance a cherished relationship that holds families in good stead well beyond the teen years.Ž Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

We brace our-selves heading into November because we know „ as bad as congressional gridlock is now „ the fear and threat of more of the same are almost assured post-election. The approach of Halloween is thus a welcome diversion from the dark-and-stormy nightmares robbing us of our sleep at night, perpetuated by the confused and chaotic zombies roaming the legislative halls. They have no clue about the responsibilities of governance they have sworn to uphold and the most extreme among them are happy to can-nibalize the lingering bits of civility left undevoured by their equally immoder-ate colleagues. We all need a break.Halloween is a good excuse to take one. The fun advances on the edgi-ness of dark themes sometime taken to extremes by adults who embrace their inner ghoul without a sense of humor, but for young people and the youthful at heart, it is a different story. They revel in the traditions of All Hallows Eve, and the opportunity to indulge in being, if only for a few hours, a citizen in a Harry Potter world. Parents and neighbors stroll in the evening shadows, stewarding their cos-tumed kids on the street. Fairies, war-riors, witches and ghosts race excitedly from house to house seeking a ransom of candy from those in wait of their unusual guests. Neighborhoods get into the groove of a fall happening, which is, in South Flori-da, an otherwise subdued affair. Autumn colors and an accent of the bizarre signal the arrival of a new season. Homes sprout jack-o-lanterns; ghostly appari-tions appear on high in the live oaks; monstrous spiders lurk in the tangle of neon webs; and tombstones sprout up in patches of lawn, the HOA helpless to intervene. Imagination is on full display and the charm of creativity delights. We get flashes of Halloween past, and all the children we have known, still costumed in our memories. It is a lovely tradition when an abundance of good will prevails and the spirit of commu-nity emerges. Strangers meet strangers and all is well. When the Halloween fun has faded, reality returns soon enough. Our inner child warns, Be afraid.Ž A mediocre job market sucks the vitality out of the middle class, the poor get poorer, and income inequality is the major charac-teristic of the new economy and gilded age of the superrich. Ideologues haunt the nations legislatures, threatening the demise of rational behavior. It is a Hal-loween dj vu but without the levity; and there is no sweet ending to the scenarios unfolding in many a familys home. Radicals have turned the legislative process into policy trick or treat, with tricks the dominant theme of their behavior. Their stinginess is legion with regard to the economic plight of lowand middle-income families, whose income and earnings have barely budged since 1980, accounting for inflation. The so-called recovery is creating jobs, but in the majority low-wage jobs, and an army of working poor while pay has jumped 80 percent for the top 10 percent; and a jaw-dropping 177 percent for the top 1 percent, according to IRS data that also factors inflation. Meanwhile, says The New York Times, From 2001 to 2007, 98 percent of income gains accrued to the top 10 per-cent of earners.Ž This is the 21st century version of a nightmare on Elm Street we could not have imagined. With high unemployment, rising housing costs, wages stagnating, and purchasing power gone anemic, fami-lies juggle the repercussions of their economic decline by sacrificing on the fundamentals that sustain a decent stan-dard of living „ such as food secu-rity, access to medical care, educational opportunity, and transportation. Unable to buy a home, they become cost burdenedŽ if over 30 percent of their annual income goes into paying rent. The bigger the slice of income for this purpose, the closer they get to the precipice of making a devils choice: If they pay the rent, they will not have enough to get through until the next paycheck. This is a life haunted by the death of optimism and the slow stran-gulation of modest dreams. For the first time, the majority of Americans expect their kids to face an economic future less secure than their own. The toxicity of the political rhetoric blinds and poisons those callous enough to suggest the governments default on the social safety net is a necessary evil that protects the nations most vulnera-ble; and scolds middle class Americans, suggesting they are lazy or simply not trying hard enough. Blaming those most victimized by the excesses of Wall Street is a slap in the face of American workers who make this country great „ but it gets worse. Corporations deemed to be people and money exercised as free speech is a Frankenstein democracy governing in a long night of the living dead. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

For a few weeks in August, the attention of the national media focused on the suburb of St. Louis, and MSNBC practically broadcast nothing else. While the media long ago moved on, the protests have persisted, enter-ing their late, decadent phase of self-indulgent triviality. Cornel West got arrested last week, and Al Sharpton is heading back to Ferguson at the end of the month to pump up atten-tion for what styles itself a movement, although it is more tinny by the day. A hallmark of August was pointlessly destructive civil disorder, and its only gotten more pointless. In late September, the makeshift memorial to Michael Brown on the street in Fergu-son burned down. This set off minor rioting, including the vandalizing of a beauty salon that has been hit multiple times for the offense of operating a business in a town where protesters are so committed to justice. In nearby S t. Louis a few weeks later, an off-duty cop working as a private security guard shot to death a teen who had fired at him with a Ruger 9 mm. It turned out the gun had been stolen two weeks earlier, and the teen, monitored with an ankle bracelet, had been await-ing trial on a felony concealed-weapon charge. Protesters took to the streets to demonstrate against what would strike most people as a legitimate act of self-defense, chanting the inapt "Hands up, dont shoot!" A grand jury is still considering the evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown, which protesters long ago con-cluded is a case of murder in the first degree. Its not possible for anyone who wasnt there to know what hap-pened on that day, when Mr. Browns friend said Mr. Brown was attacked by Officer Darren Wilson and shot while running away. An anonymous witness who saw the entire incident from beginning to end told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that after an initial scuffle in the car, Officer Wilson didnt shoot Mr. Brown until he turned back toward him. Mr. Brown kept coming toward Officer Wilson despite orders to stop, and was 20-25 feet away when the last shots were fired. According to the witness, Mr. Brown did not raise his arms in the gesture of surrender that is the iconic symbol of the Ferguson pro-tests. Although the witness believes Officer Wilson didnt have to kill Mr. Brown, his version is more compli-cated than the one taken as a given by the protesters.The New York Times has reported that Darren Wilson told investiga-tors that Mr. Brown pinned him in his vehicle and there was a struggle over his gun, and he feared for his life. FBI forensics show that the gun was indeed fired twice in the car, and Mr. Browns blood was on the gun and Officer Wilsons uniform. Mr. Sharpton and protesters maintain that all they want is justice. It may well be what justice demands in this case is no indictment of a cop who fired in self-defense. Although, sadly, that is unlikely to be a formula for peace. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. b t b a a s rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly n s t m n i i leslie

Early registrations will receive a personal-ized race bib with their name on it. Participants are asked to bring a nonperishable food item to support the Epis-copal Church of the Good Shepherds food pantry.

Addition-ally, the School District of Palm Beach County states that children receiving free or reduced price lunches increased from 20 percent participation to 50 percent par-ticipation this year. Last year over 3,500 pounds of food was donated. We are very excited about The Run 4 the Pies and are proud to support an event that gives back to the community,Ž Mr. Anderson added.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIf youre online, youve seen them: the social media rumors, emails or blog posts claiming that particular products are hazardous to a pets health. Wheth-er were talking foods, treats, cleaning products or pharmaceuticals, there are likely stories floating around that one or another of them causes illness or death. They sound alarming. But are they true? The Internet is wonderful, but not every-thing you read on it is fair or even factual. Heck, I read things about myself on the Internet all the time that arent true. How can you know if what youre reading is accurate? We have some advice and sources that will help you separate fact from fiction. So forget the panic: Here are five ways to avoid the spin and get the real skinny. Q Go t o the source. By law, drug manuf acturers must report all potential adverse effects to the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA defines an adverse drug experience as any unfavor-able or unintended reaction after a drug is administered, whether or not that reaction is believed to be related to the product and whether or not the drug was given as instructed on the label. You can find adverse drug experience reports for veterinary drugs online at Each pharmaceutical company is required to conduct a thorough inves-tigation of all adverse events,Ž says my colleague Michael Dryden, professor of veterinary parasitology at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medi-cine. In these investigations, all rel-evant information is obtained, such as the medical history of the animal, clini-cal pathology reports, toxicological data for the product, necropsy reports and any other available information. This information is used to help determine the likelihood that a product is linked to the reported event in the patient.Ž Q Contact the company directly. Most manufacturers provide a toll-free number on their packaging. In fact, food manufacturers are required to provide contact information on the label. Ask what is being done to investigate the situation. Q Go to neutral fact-checking sites. Neutral sites arent associated with or supported by manufacturers, and their only goal is to seek the truth. You might say that they dont have a dog in this hunt. These independent sites present evidence and facts to verify or debunk all kinds of rumors. They look for confirmation from authoritative sources and list their refer-ences. Reputable sites that often address pet-related e-rumors include and Q Dont confuse correlation with causation. In other words, coincidence happens. Heres what my colleague Tony Johnson, DVM, an emergency medicine and critical-care specialist, has to say about that: If a dog or cat is diagnosed with an infection or cancer or organ failure, and the owner had used a certain product in the preceding days or weeks, its human nature to want to associate something new with the o utcome. It looks bad, but theres not necessarily any correlation.Ž For more about how to distinguish between correlation and causation, especially in the context of science and health, take a look at George Mason Universitys website, which addresses the subject in a way thats easy to understand. Q T alk to your veterinarian. Your pets v eterinarian is trained in looking at data and has experience with many different pets and the products made for them. Theres no doubt that adverse drug events can occur, especially in pets with underlying health conditions or other unknown causes of sensitivity, and that foods or other products can become contaminated. When you have concerns, your veterinarian is the best person to help you sort out reality from rumor and science from spin. Q Before becoming alarmed by what you read online, get a reality check to make sure the information isn’t misleading, or just plain wrong.

Q Wanted: A few good items for Boynton kinetic sculpture SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA historic tree in Boynton Beach is about to go from kapok to kinetic. The giant kapok tree will be transformed into a living, kinetic sculpture during Kinetic-Connections. Kinetic-Connections, a creation of Elayna Toby Art, and commissioned by the city of Boynton Beachs Art in Public Places is a multipart project designed to inspire people to reimagine everyday objects for up-cycling into art. The public is encouraged to find everyday objects to bring to the Boyn-ton Beach Library during one of three, free events between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Nov. 1, 8 and 15. Each object should be no larger than your hand, weigh less than a candy bar, be clean without sharp edges and have a hole or opening for stringing (bells, small pieces of hardware, trinkets, old keys, etc.). Participants will contribute their items during one of the free events; design a section of the tree sculpture with their small items; share their sto-ries of stuffŽ on a set-up video selfie screen; then meet up at the kapok tree in February to see their treasures trans-formed into a community kinetic mas-terpiece. Ms. Toby has been creating kinetic pieces since the mid-1990s, and incor-porating found objectsŽ since 2003. She has had commissioned works and exhibitions throughout Palm Beach County for the past five years. The International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium (February 2015) is the ideal fit for her work, which led to the inspi-ration for Kinetic-Connections. For years Ive had a vision of creating an installation in a tree,Ž she said in a statement. This kapok tree is already a special landmark in the community. Its been a gathering place for over 100 years. Im really excited its the center-piece of this community-inspired tem-porary artwork..Ž The location is not the only part of the project that appealed to the artist. The Boynton Beach Library is at 208 S. Seacrest Blvd. in Boynton Beach. For more information, visit or Q

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYtoward me, calm now and smiling. I asked if he had heard of the disease that was killing Floridas citrus trees, a terminal illness called citrus greening, or Huanglongbing (HLB), but he was there to save Man instead. Man has a disease,Ž he said. You know what this is „ sin. And the only cure is Jesus Christ and his blood.Ž I had been standing with Mr. Sterlings friend, pastor and missionary C.E. Mainous, who had heard of the disease. Among citrus growers in the Christian, rural interior of the state, it has reached the almost biblical dimensions of plague, killing their trees and spreading to every grove in the past decade. And with no sure cure „ but myriad ways to slow the disease, hopefully long enough to make a profit before the trees die „ a cloud of uncertainty mixed with hope hangs over the industry. Mr. Mainous himself used to have three orange trees in his backyard. The disease took two, he fig-ures, and one is left, a Honeybell tree. I dont know if itll last another year or not,Ž he said. If youve never ate a Honeybell orange you oughta get one. Fantastic. Juicy. Sweet.Ž When I asked what spiritual advice he might offer growers, he said, Pray.Ž Many of them surely are, even as they wait for science to find a solution, and tend their groves more vigilantly than ever. C.E. Mainous handed me a small pamphlet. Inside it read, Life is very uncertain, and you have no guarantee that you will be alive this time tomor-rowƒŽTHE F LORIDA CITRUS BELT bands the state,Ž the writ-er John Mulliken observed in a Fort Lauderdale SunSentinel article 30 years ago, the same way a rural, Southern sheriff might wear his gun-belt „ low-slung.Ž The description is true today. Once clinched around the states midsection,Ž growers were forced south because of freezes, and over decades they were also squeezed inland by urban development. Now this rural, Southern belt „ respon-sible for three-quarters of the nations orange crop, most of it used for not-from-concentrate juice „ exists south of Interstate 4. The road is slung at an angle from Tampa up through the northwest corner of Polk County (Lakeland and the surrounding area), the geographic center of the Florida peninsula and defacto heart of the states signature industry. As of six years ago, the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agriculture Sci-ences reported that citrus had an $8.9 billion economic impact in the state and provided 75,800 jobs. The orange is the official state fruit, its juice the state drink, its trees heady blooms the state flower, its name gracing street signs and at least one diner in Frost-proof, as well as the famous college football game held in Miami. And for the past 10 years, the citrus belt has been dying from citrus greening or Huanglongbing. That means yellow dragon diseaseŽ in Chinese, China being the country where HLB is first known to have existed a century or more ago. It was officially first discovered in the United States in Miami-Dade County in 2005, before appearing in Texas and California. One Florida grower told me he saw the Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri), the tiny bug that carries the bacterium (Candidatus Liberabacter asiaticus) in its saliva and feeds on citrus tree leaves, as early as 2000. UF reported that in the four years through the 2010-11 growing season, HLB cost the state 8,257 jobs and $4.5 billion in lost revenue. Since then production has only continued to drop, and its not clear just how many of Floridas citrus trees are infected, scientists said, because it can take up to five years for symptoms of HLB to express in a mature tree. If they dont find a cure for it soon its going to devastate this economy,Ž said Polk County Commissioner Mela-nie Bell. The HLB greening situation is very frightening to our state,Ž said Hendry County Commissioner Karson Turner. Flori-da has been known as a citrus producer my entire life. It puts us on the map internationally. The citrus industry is on life support in many ways. Maybe life sup-port is a strong word but its definitely in critical condition. Its a bad, bad disease right now. And theres no answer. Thats the scary thing. No way to defeat this bug thats out there.Ž Meanwhile, Americans are drinking less orange juice, which industry experts believe is tied to the rising price of juice due to lack of supply. The decline in demand is also partly a reaction to the obesity epidemic and the perception that the beverage is too high in calories and sugar. BY ALL ACCOUNTS THE PAST decade has been the most challenging period for Florida citrus farmers in history. By last season, the more than 200 million boxes of oranges the citrus belt pro-duced had been cut in half, with every commercial citrus grove in the state „ if not every tree „ infected with HLB. I dont care how strong you are on the balance sheet or personally, its a very difficult time for all of us,Ž said Paul Meador, who owns Everglades Harvesting & Hauling in LaBelle. All the trees in the ground now, that have been around 10 to 20 years, are pretty much all infected,Ž said Fran Becker, vice president of fruit procure-ment for Peace River Citrus Products, a large-scale orange and grapefruit growing and packing operation with the capacity to process 20 million boxes of fruit per year. You see (HLB) in every tree, almost,Ž said Kevin Shelfer, a 53-year-old grower whose family has run the 300-acre Joshua Citrus groves near Arcadia since the late 1880s. Last year, his crop was half what it was the year before. On a tour of his groves, his wife, Lynn, pointed out that a side effect of HLB is a spike in salesmen pushing nutrients and chemicals designed to save their trees. Kevin gets phone calls all the time,Ž she said. Its like in the old days, everybody has a snake oil.Ž Some may help more or less „ it can be hard to tell. One of the frustrating aspects of HLB is that what works in one part of the state, or in one gr ove, or even from one tree to the next, isnt always consistent. Theres a lot of uncertainty because were not sure the trees will keep going like they are,Ž said grower Bobby Mixon about the citrus trees on his 1,600 acres (some devoted to cat-tle) in Hardee and DeSoto counties. I think the majority of growers is going to come up with a way to overcome it. Thats my feeling. Im not giving up on it anyhow, and most growers arent. We think the citrus industrys going to be here. Im optimistic well overcome the greening somewhere down the road. Well learn to live with it until we overcome it.Ž But there has also been an increase in growers abandoning their groves or selling them, especially smaller operations that cant afford the high upfront costs of caring for trees with HLB. Smaller or mar-ginalŽ producers who control maybe a few hundred acres, those folks are gone,Ž said Carey Soud, who was one of them. His family harvested citrus on about 150 acres until a few years ago when a freeze killed off his trees, already weakened by HLB. Mr. Carey, who is also president of First Bank of Clewiston, pointed out that HLB has affected lending. We did a good bit of citrus lending up until really the past year,Ž he said. Now the bank is mostly not looking to do any citrus loans. Theres not a whole lot of confidence in the credit sector that you can plant a tree and control greening and have a viable cit-rus operation.ŽHLB SHUTS DOWN AN orange or grapefruit trees vascular system during the course of roughly five to 10 years. The tree, unable to deliver nutrients through its roots and up into the fruit, becomes progressive-ly weaker and dies. Costly, coordinated treatments of pesticides to reduce the psyllid population and a variety of nutrients to baby the sick plant have been found to keep many trees alive longer. But even with constant atten-tion, it is not known how long growers can keep a tree with HLB in remission and the tree economically viable. It could take five years for a young tree to produce fruit and 10 to 15 to reach maximum yield. Historically, trees last 30 or 40 years, with heritage trees 80 and older in some places. But with HLB, that productive life could be reduced to 10 or 20 years at best, making it harder to break even on total costs. Because it is believed that most of Floridas mature citrus trees now have the HLB virus, industry profes-sionals are working under the assump-tion that the existing crop will die out by roughly 2025 unless a cure is discovered. Thats why researchers and growers stress the importance of replanting and protecting new trees. Indeed, groves throughout the state are dotted with young citrus trees that have come fresh CITRUSFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYKevin Shelfer with a young orange tree at his grove in Arcadia. A rootstock bred for HLB resistance, it is one of millions of new trees that Flori-da growers have planted to replace dead ones.“You see (HLB) in every tree, almost.”— Kevin Shelfer, a 53-year-old grower whose family has run the 300-acre Joshua Citrus groves near Arcadia since the late 1880s.


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 NEWS A11from nurseries. The maturely established grovesƒ its safe to say a large majority of those trees are infected,Ž said Michael Rogers, an entomologist, associate professor and interim director of the University of Floridas Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred, at the northern edge of Polk County. And thats why the tree replanting is so important because we know we are going to be losing a lot of these trees in the next five to 10 years. If we didnt replant, 10 years from now we wont have a citrus crop because of this dis-ease.Ž Today, almost 15 percent of Floridas 515,000 acres of commercial citrus are trees that have come from nurseries in the past four years, Mr. Rogers esti-mates. That is based on the maximum number of trees a nursery can produce per year. Growers who can afford to stay in the business now are replant-ing at such a high rate that nurseries are all by and large on backorder, an indication of both optimism and that growers have little other choice. Many of the young trees are experimental rootstalks that may have a stronger tol-erance for HLB. That doesnt mean theyre not going to be infected but they seem to hold up and last longer,Ž Mr. Rogers said. These are some of the first generation of new plant material that are coming through the breeding program.Ž As an HLB-positive tree sickens, it produces less fruit, and a portion of the citrus fruit, unable to be sus-tained by an infected tree, drops to the ground while still green, before it has a chance to ripen. HLB, its fruit dropŽ and other symptoms such as yellowing leaves account for the lions share of Floridas enormous loss of production in the last decade, industry experts say. But the disease has also made the weakened trees „ the leaves thinning out, skeletal branches appearing, the roots weakening, mirroring what hap-pens above ground „ far more suscep-tible to a long list of other diseases and pests, including freezes and canker. If people are taking care of the trees they can make a good profit,Ž said Mongi Zekri, a University of Florida IFAS citrus extension agent. We have groves that have been infected since 2006 and they have been producing the same crop, almost the same yield.Ž But he adds, If you cause any stress to the trees, the tree will decline really drastically. A long time ago if you get greedy with the trees, they will still produce a decent crop, but nowadays, you have to spend money (on pesti-cide, fertilizer and management). You can spend money or you can stop but you cannot stay in the middle, because any kind of stress can cause the fruit to drop on the ground before it reaches maturity.ŽS COTT YOUNGS GRANDFATHER established a grove in Alturas, a semi-rural Polk County community of about 4,200 just east of Bartow, near the start of the Great Depression. Polk County produces more citrus on more acreage than any other county in the state. The Young family plans to keep a small portion of their roughly 500 acres as a nucleus,Ž and sell the rest, said Mr. Young, who is 57. We cant hang on in the current situation.Ž But it hasnt sold yet, and for now he is still running the grove along with his family. His mother, Wanda, does the bookkeeping. Were keepin on keepin on, thats the best way to put it. And were pray-ing for a miracle,Ž he said, talking with me in a barn filled with memorabilia, including an old Wurlitzer jukebox with a picture of the New York City skyline, including the Twin Towers, on the front. Governors and senators have hosted meetings at this barn, Mr. Young told me. His thoughts seemed to drift for a moment and he said, as much to himself as me, (HLB) could run its course. Who knows.Ž Mr. Young sees the problem through his fathers eyes as well. Its kind of disheartening to live your life and build up an empire and watch it go out when youre going out,Ž he said. For his father, Leland, who was out back working on a mechanical part of some kind „his ability to fix broken-down vehicles apparently legendary „ uncertainty defines the disease: the feeling of feeling your way in the dark, that in spite of your own best knowl-edge and the best efforts of science, your efforts may be in vain. When his son asked him if he had anything to say to a reporter about greening he said, I dont know anything about it. Nobody does.Ž Were fighting blind,Ž his son said. After a moment, his father walked over to where we were standing in the storied barn, talking, his body moving in a way that was wooden but forceful. He flashed a smile, revealing a surprising row of perfect, straight white teeth. Ive been growing for more than 60 years,Ž he added. I did a pretty good job of it and now I cant. Thats what I know.Ž As a grower, his son has battled one pest after another, but nothing like this. The only thing he can compare it to is the boll weevil beetle, which his rela-tives once faced. They came from Georgia where the boll weevil ran them out of the cotton industry,Ž Mr. Young said „ and they came to Alturas and founded his citrus grove. So its kind of happening again. But were a tough bunch.ŽD EAN SAUNDERS, A FORMER state legislator who has for years run a large real estate practice specializ-ing in agricultural land, put me in touch with the Young family when I visited his expan-sive, third-floor office in downtown Lakeland earlier that day. Born in Cler-mont, Mr. Saunders graduated from the University of Florida „ where he was a member of the Citrus Club „ with a degree in fruit crops, food and resource economics. He served as a Democrat in the state House of Rep-resentatives between 1992 and 1996, before establishing his current broker-age. The small guys (growers) cant afford to keep going, paying the money they are for production costs,Ž he said. Theres a paradigm where the small guys are getting out and some of the larger guys want to get larger and see an opportunity: You know theres always an opportunity with this stuff. I think everybody is optimistic that we will get some solution and some resolution but the question is when and can people survive between now and then?Ž He sums up the problem for a smaller grower: I was producing 400 boxes to the acre, now Im producing around 200 and Im afraid Im less than 200. They start doing the math. Its costing you close to $2,000 per acre to grow it now and if youve only got 200 boxes of fruit, those economics dont work.Ž With citrus production hovering at about 100 million boxes per year, Mr. Saunders said, the infrastructure around the industry is now going to have stresses and strains on it. And so you couple all those things with declining juice consumption „ theres just a lot of things going on as far as a perfect storm in the industry. But again where some people see doom and gloom or some people just are faced with the reality of whats going on with their individual groves, other people see some opportunities maybe to expand their acreage at some point in the future.Ž Mr. Saunders also believes government, including Florida legislators, should consider short-term financial help for grove owners intended to stabilizeŽ the citrus-processing infra-structure by offering growers a way to produce at lower costs, thereby lower-ing the cost for consumers and making orange juice a more attractive choice. Im not an advocate of long-term government intervention at all,Ž he said. But if theres a time and place for (short-term intervention), its now. We need to start talking about it now.ŽF OR FLORIDIANS WHO WORK IN the citrus business, includ-ing some 8,000 growers, their families, friends and neighbors, living under the cloud of HLB has become routine. Thats kind of old news, isnt it?Ž said one of a group of men from this crowd in downtown Arcadia. They fil-ter in to Wheelers diner almost every morning about 5 a.m. for breakfast, said a waitress there. Most of them know about the citrus business, shed heard bits and piecesŽ of conversation about greening, and suggested I might speak with them. Walking along the dark streets at 5:40, I met the disciple Jeremiah Sterling, the possessed man who responded to my question about citrus greening with proselytism. Wheelers open door glowed. Inside the small bright room, early morning conversa-tions percolated. A rotating group of men, a few middle-aged but most with roughened faces and silver hair, were hunched around two tables. None of them agreed to give their names to the reporter who showed up unexpectedly so early in the day. They were cagey about revealing their occupations. A few may have been politicians, another said he was a grower who housed sea-sonal grove workers (slumlordŽ his friends goaded him) but later seemed to deny it; anothers brother was a grower, one was in the funeral busi-ness, and so on. Yet, they let me have breakfast with them nonetheless and suggested others I might speak with. They paused for a brief, almost unno-ticeable but distinct moment of silent prayer before digging in to eggs, bacon, grits, b uttered to ast and conv ersa tion. You get rid of oranges in this county and were in trouble „ its citrus and cattle,Ž said one of the men, the only clearly identifiable member of the group, a highway patrolman in uni-form. Earlier in his life he had consid-ered being a grower, but he shakes his head at the idea now. You couldnt give him a grove for free. The one whose brother is in the business thinks groves will be largely wiped out within 10 years. A lot of people are more optimistic than I am,Ž he conceded, speculating about other things that could be grown instead of citrus trees: marijuana, nuts, grapes. Who knows, you might be able to grow cocoa beans,Ž he said, or coffee. To date, researchers and growers said they have not found any alterna-tive to take the place of citrus. One man walked in later than the others, shortly after 6 a.m. He recount-ed learning to drive in citrus groves, hunting rabbits in them, and getting a job picking fruit and watering trees, along with his wife, almost 60 years ago when they were newlyweds. It was a different town back then,Ž he said. It was a different country.Ž EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDAS WEEKLYDean Saunders at his downtown Lakeland office.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 NEWS A12AS FALL BEGINS GROWERS continue to weather uncertainty as they wait for what could be, at least according to U.S. Depart-ment of Agriculture predictions, a year in which production stops hemorrhaging. Because of ideal growing conditions, a rainy summer and babied trees, many groves look as full and loaded with fruit now as they ever have. But even the best-looking trees may carry the HLB virus, and as much as they try to put it in remission, as nice as the trees look now, it could potentially cause a lot of the fruit on them to drop off before its harvested in the next few months. Growers bid to delay the death of trees is matched only by a vast, sus-tained effort by the scientific com-munity. The Citrus Research and Development Foundation was founded in 2009 to raise money to fund HLB research. It has already spent more than $92 million and partnered with experts all over the world (HLB is a threat to citrus farmers everywhere). The foundation is funding 130 proj-ects at public and private institutions, including more than two dozen univer-sities in the U.S. In spite of all this, a silver bulletŽ solution to the disease has eluded them. There is still no cure, no antibiotic, no disease-immune rootstalk, or genet-ically engineered tree whose genes are not susceptible to the bacterium. But researchers leading the effort, as well as some growers, believe they have found a toolbox full of methods to keep trees alive at least long enough to stay economically viable, pulling the citrus industry back from the edge of an apparent widespread collapse. Long term, like with most problems in agriculture, its kind of a system integration where you adjust a bunch of things and collectively it solves a problem,Ž said Harold Browning, the foundations chief operations officer. SINCE HLB APPEARED IN THE United States, knowledge about it has exploded. Weve learned more in the past seven or eight years than has been learned in 100 years elsewhere,Ž said entomolo-gist Mr. Rogers. Weve had so many scientists working on this weve really come a long way in how to deal with and manage this disease. Weve got some of these new root-stocks that are out there that are a little more tolerant now, and people see there is a future for the citrus industry in Florida. If you want to stay in this indus-try, youve got to replant and move forward.Ž One of the most successful means of slowing HLB has been coor-dinated pesticide sprays across numer-ous groves under different ownership, or Citrus Health Management Areas. That helps prevent psyllids from grove hopping from a recently treated field to an untreated one. There are now 52 CHMAs in the state. The program began in 2011. Since that time weve seen about a 60 percent reduction in psyllid popula-tion statewide,Ž Mr. Rogers said. The UF Citrus Research and Education Center (not to be confused with the Citrus Research and Development Foundation, also in Lake Alfred) has studied all aspects of citrus exclusively for close to a century, but its more than 20 faculty members are now all focusing on HLB. Until his current administrative role, Mr. Rogers studied how psyllids breed and transmit the pathogen (bacterium) to trees. All the faculty here has transitioned their programs to focus on citrus greening research,Ž said Mr. Rogers. Its the most important problem fac-ing our industry right now. There have been a lot of diseases that have come through the industry and said this will be the disease that will wipe out the industry. But greening is a little bit different. Its origins are back more than 100 years in Asian countries „ despite the fact that this disease has been out there nobody has found a cure for it. Its considered to be the most danger-ous (disease affecting citrus trees) worldwide.Ž One of the largest stumbling blocks to finding a way to control the HLB pathogen is that so far it can only be studied in a natural setting, mak-ing gold-standard scientific research impossible. Here were trying to find a way to cure and prevent this disease, but we havent even cultured the disease in a laboratory,Ž Mr. Rogers said. Too, the psyllid that spreads the disease has a high rate of reproduction. A female can lay 800 eggs in a short period, with the population exploding in just a few weeks. It only takes one psyllid feeding on a healthy tree which begins the process of the death of that tree,Ž he said. We have to have pretty much perfect psyl-lid control. Our goal is to eliminate all the psyllids.Ž A tree bred to be disease tolerant or a genetically engineered tree „ such as adding a gene from spinach that would make it immune to HLB „ offer two of the most promising long-term solutions to greening. I think one of the biggest hindrances of (genetic engineering) is trying to get the public to understand theres nothing wrong with a genetically mod-ified citrus,Ž Mr. Rogers said. Among numerous short-term methods to keep trees productive are heat or steam therapies that temporar-ily raise the temperature of the tree enough to kill off bacteria inside it. ON A F RIDAY EVENING NEAR Frostproof, I turned off the road and took a smaller road around a bend, and then an even smaller road that was paved but in disrepair. The citrus trees on both sides were so thick and tall, the branches heavy with large clusters of perfect green oranges „ green as they should be before harvest season, roughly November through May „ the dark shiny leaves so thick on the branches that they almost completely blocked out the evening sun dropping behind them. And then I came to a field that stood out starkly from the rest. The rows of orange trees were almost all skeletons, nearly fruitless. At the front of this ghost grove were staked two small signs, each one a pic-ture of a cross, like a roadside memo-rial for the states dying groves and its embattled growers. The quiet and peacefulness was overwhelming, and I lay down in the grass to get a good angle on some pictures of the crosses. After a few moments a white truck rambled up over a small hill at the crest of the grove and down one of the alleys toward me. I got up and stood by the road. The truck pulled up and the driver beckoned for me to open the passenger side door. Bob Harvey had not been expecting company. Shirtless and with his white hair some-what disheveled, he regarded me with only the faintest hint of suspicion, and said he was just taking out the garbage and then hed talk with me. He and his wife own 10 acres, and theyre surrounded by big growers, companies that manage thousands of acres, Mr. Harvey said. They pour enormous amounts of money into keeping the trees healthy, while he hasnt tended his 10-acre plot since Hurricane Charley wiped out his irrigation system in 2004. After that, citrus greening sped up the process of killing the tre es, he believes. He and his wife used to make around $10,000 per year from its produce but now that has been reduced to spending money for the Harveys, who enjoy eating out. Even this stark-looking grove produces enough for that. His wife will pick a few bushels and sell them at a market. One boon of letting the trees take their natural course is that their Valencia oranges qualify as certified organic. As it turns out, the crosses were not a memorial or prayer for dying trees, at least not intentionally. Mr. Harvey explained that he and his wife are also deeply religious, and their driveway runs up through the orange grove. They put out the crosses to mark a spot that company can find when they come to visit. Q EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYScott Young at his grove in Alturas.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 NEWS A13 Make sure your little goblins are safe celebrating HalloweenHalloween can be great fun for the whole family. Parents and children dress up and get free candy. But with hundreds of children walking around at night, everyone is responsible for having a safe holiday. Here are some helpful tips: Choosing A CostumeMake sure you can see. Masks and hoods can make it hard to see. Non-toxic face paints are a much better choice. Wear something that reflects light. You can add reflective tape to your costume and treat bag so drivers can see you. Carry a flashlight to light your way. You can even find one to match your costume!Fun With FriendsYounger children should always have a responsible adult or older teenager with them while they trick or treat. Take some friends along. A group of three or more is safer than one.Plan AheadChildren should plan their routines and decide with their parents what time they should be home. Families should only visit the houses of people they know who have an outside light on. If the light is off, the homeowners are probably away and not giving out candy. Children should not go inside a house to accept candy. Safety FirstDont stand too close to a lighted candle … especially in a jack-o-lantern. A costume might catch fire. Whether walking, using your super powers or fly-ing a broom, watch out for traffic. Stay on the sidewalks. Cross only at intersec-tions. Dont hide between parked cars. Look both ways before crossing the street. Dont cut across alleys or yards. Parents or a responsible adult should check their childs candy before he or she eats it. Throw any open packages or homemade treats away. Tips for ParentsChildren often want to help carve the pumpkin, but little fingers and sharp objects do not mix. Children should draw the face on the pumpkin while an adult handles the carving. Children may enjoy cleaning out the pumpkin and sav-ing the seeds to bake for a snack. Parent should make sure their children understand the rules of Halloween safety. Develop a game plan and agree on the rules ahead of time. If older children are going out without an adult, parents should make sure they understand the difference between vandalism and tricks. When shopping for costumes, parents should check the material to be sure it is flame retardant and their childs vision wont be obscured by any part of the costume. The costume shouldnt be too long to prevent tripping. If a child is wearing a hat, check to make sure it wont slip down over their eyes. If a child is carrying props like a sword, knife or scythe, check to see that the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury. Parents may want to find an alternative to door-to-door trick or treating such as going to a mall or community event. Parents may also want to host a special Halloween party for their chil-dren and friends. Its not safe today to let children go trick or treating alone. Have a respon-sible adult or older teen go with small-er children. Older children and teens should go in groups. Parents should make their houses safe for those little trick-or-treaters. There are special lights that mimic a candle for jack-o-lanterns. If there is a candle, keep the pumpkin on a sturdy surface away from where children are likely to stand. Dont leave a burning candle unattended. Teach your children that Halloween is about fun. Throwing eggs at a house or car or even toilet-papering trees can be considered acts of vandalism. Despite taking precautions, accidents do happen, and Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center is here for you and your child to handle any emergency. The hospital has the only 24-hour pediatric emergency room in northern Palm Beach County and is staffed with a dedicated team of phy-sicians and specialists ready to offer patients the best care possible.

After the surgeon removes the cancer, e-IORT more precisely targets the remaining tissue at highest risk for recurrence. Because e-IORT is done at the time of surgery, it treats the tissue when it is most sensitive to radiation, before scarring occurs. Instead of waiting a few weeks to start radiation therapy, it takes place immediately. A patient will wake up from surgery and have received radiation that is equivalent to the dose that is typically given over 6 weeks. Most eligible patients wont need to undergo any additional radiation therapy. For those patients who do need additional radiation, treatment is shortened by at least a week. Our team of physicians customizes the treatment plan for every patient. Reduce Breast Cancer Treatment from Six Weeks to One Day with e-IORTThe future of Breast Cancer treatment is here today 5301 S.

No one should have to live on the streets,Ž said Ms. FitzGerald in the statement. I am committed to helping The Lords Place break the cycle of home-lessness by supporting their programs and services that put people back to work. The Lords Place provides job training, teaches life skills, and offers employment oppor-tunities for program graduates. Last year, they had a 92 percent success rate for indi-viduals who completed their programs.Ž Ms. FitzGerald received the Unsung Heroine Award at the Ending Homeless-ness Breakfast in 2012 in recognition of her strong, personal commitment to helping the homeless, and the pro bono work that she and her staff devote to helping The Lords Place spread its message. The annual Lords Place Ending Homelessness Breakfast honors individuals and organizations for their outstanding efforts to end homelessness.

He is proud that his career continues. I have a sister thats just one year younger than I am up in St. Augus-tine,Ž he said. People will talk to her about the fact that shes 96 years and being in as good a condition as she is, and she says, Thats nothing. I have an older brother who still works.Ž After Mr. Ponce retired as an assistant manager at The Breakers in 1982, he became the resorts historian. He later led tours of Worth Avenue, as well as the hotel. It is a job he takes seriously.He is always nattily attired in a red blazer. His tour changes daily. Its a challenge. People think you go over there and point things out. I have to go around,Ž he said. They might be having a convention and two or three of the pretty rooms are occupied. You have to figure out what route youre going to take. You cant describe a room that youre not in. The less said the better.Ž Flagler first built The Breakers as The Palm Beach Inn in 1896. Dur-ing an expansion in 1903, The Break-ers burned down. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1904. That building burned in 1925, and the current hotel, modeled after the Villa Medici in Rome, reopened in 1926. Who knew a portion of the original wooden building still exists? We have a chimney from the original building, which had its own power plant because there was no electricity in South Florida,Ž he said. A similar chimney exists along the south side of the Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augus-tine, which is now Flagler College. For all his money, Flagler was always trying to save money. He thought he could burn soft coal, but it was so smoky,Ž Mr. Ponce said with a laugh. The chimney aside, his favorite spots at The Breakers include The Gold Room. Of course, it has those portraits under the Roman arches, of Ponce de Leon and Pedro Menendez, who founded St. Augustine. Of course, the place of honor would be Christopher Columbus, who was flanked by Ferdi-nand and Isabella,Ž he said. Of course, a couple of important moments in my life took place there, including The Providencia Award. The Breakers put on quite a show for me.Ž Palm Beach Countys tourism agency, Discover The Palm Beaches, awards the Providencia to an individual or an agency that contributes to the vitality and prosperity of the Palm Beaches as a tourist destination. The award is named for the ship that wrecked in 1878 and littered the coast with coconuts, giving the area its namesake palms. In 1996, the Palm Beach Town Council named him Palm Beachs only two-legged, historical landmark.ŽThe neighborhoodHenry Flagler built Palm Beach, and certainly was responsible for putting little towns like West Palm Beach and Miami on the map when he continued the Florida East Coast Railway south from Jacksonville and later took it on across the Florida Keys to Key West. And it is just west of Flaglers tracks that Mr. Ponce lives, in the Spanish-style home he bought in 1957. His Northwood Hills neighborhood has evolved much as the rest of the region, and he has seen the area that he calls home wax, wane and start to shine again. Northwood Hills was a very different world 60 years ago. The neighbor-hood was home to staff from nearby St. Marys Hospital and other profes-sionals. We still had doctors and merchants and what not. Directly over there on 36th Street was Mrs. Belden, and she had a florist shop, and on the back of the hill, Sasser of Sassers glassworks. That was the last nice house on the back of the hill,Ž he said, gesturing westward. The area fell on hard times, thanks to the white flight of the 1970s and 80s in which original homeowners left the area. A lot of those folks took off for the suburbs. I had a nice Southern gal who lived across the street, Ruby,Ž Mr. Ponce said. She would first say, Ill stay as long as Jim stays, and Id say, Ill stay as long as Ruby stays. And Im glad I did.Ž About 15 years ago, the neighborhood began to turn around again. Families were buying homes, fixing them up and moving in. We were doing so good and then came the downturn, but were begin-ning to pick up again,Ž he said. His own home, built in 1926, is comfortable, and can take advantage of breezes at what some say is the high-est elevation in Palm Beach County. There were very few houses like mine built in the 20s because this was the last subdivision on the north end,Ž he said. Before the end of World War I, the end of West Palm Beach was Northwood Road, thats why its called a road and not a street. It was a little road that ran along the north edge of town. Then right after World War I, they created what we know as Old Northwood, and even north of there, they finally did the hilltop.Ž Many of the homes in the area are decades newer. Lets see, on this block there were just three houses. On that block there was just one, so it was pretty sparsely settled until after World War II, then it quickly filled in,Ž he said. He also remembers when developers filled the area along a thorough-fare then known as 12th Street Exten-sion to build the Palm Beach Mall. I was here when they filled all that in. You had a number to call if any critters moved in on you, and a lot of them did. First the alligators, then the snakes,Ž he said of the area around what is now Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard. He shook a shoe in the air.When they started filling that, you didnt dare to put your shoes on until you did this to be sure you didnt have a scorpion in your shoe,Ž he said.At home with historyIt is only natural that Mr. Ponce would live in what is now a historic neighborhood in West Palm Beach; after all, he was born and raised in St. Augustine, under the shadow of Henry Flagler. The headquarters of his various corporations were in St. Augustine,Ž Mr. Ponce said. The shops for the railroad were there, the Model Land Co. The only thing we didnt have was the Florida Power & Light Co.Ž Flagler took care of that, too, though.You see, when he went down, he put power plants into his hotels. When he went to Miami, he built the Miami Power & Light Co. and lit the whole town. That was the beginning of the Florida Power & Light Co.Ž Flagler, a Standard Oil baron, left his mark on just about everything he touched. In each of his towns he also built the ice company making artificial ice. If they werent there, then he built it. He was unbelievable in that he had so much going on his plate. Im kind of sorry that I missed you,Ž Mr. Ponce said wistfully of Flagler. When Flagler died in 1913 after falling down some stairs at Whitehall, his Palm Beach estate, his body was returned to St. Augustine for burial by Mr. Ponces father. I used to play on the hearse that took him to his final resting place because my father was the undertaker who put him in the tomb. He died here, but they took him to St. Augus-tine,Ž he said. Mr. Ponce led a Boy Scout troop in St. Augustine that included John Atwater, who later became patriarch of a northern Palm Beach County clan that includes State CFO Jeff Atwater and public relations executive Enid Atwater. Then, his country called on him.Mr. Ponce enlisted in the Navy after Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor. Oddly enough, I spent the first 18 months in Hollywood, Florida, in the naval aerial gunnery school,Ž he said. After that I was transferred to the naval amphibious forces. I was on an LST „ one of those big landing crafts that could land tanks and all that kind of stuff.Ž There, he saw history in the making.We landed in Leyte, just up the beach from where General MacArthur came ashore. I actually saw him walk through the water. He didnt have to walk through the water,Ž Mr. Ponce said. All the boats could have gotten closer but it was more effective to get out and walk through the water. It was when he re-entered the Philippines.Ž It was around that time that the ship Mr. Ponce was on sank. The worst thing that happened to us was that they kamikazeed an ammunitions ship that was just behind us,Ž he said. And of course if youve ever seen an ammunitions ship blow up, its just unbelievable that there can be an explosion of that magnitude.Ž The ship remained afloat for a time.Our ship was a floating wreck but the engines still worked, so we stayed with the convoy. But then the Japanese torpedoed us that afternoon,Ž he said.

Im so detached from it,Ž he said of his service. I thoroughly enjoyed being in the Navy most of the time. I even enjoyed being in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. It was not much of a naval war, but it was a Marine war.Ž After World War II ended, he headed to the Big Apple. A small-town boy „ why in the world would he decide to go to New York? I had a couple hundred dollars in my pocket and heres this enormous city. I quickly found myself a job in one of the big hotels.Ž The city enjoyed a post-war cultural boom. Im so glad I spent those several years there. To me, one of the great-est things was that theater was in its zenith right after World War II. So many of the great plays, from South Pacific to Carousel. There was just no end, all the way up to Carol Chan-ning in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.ŽAfter the warHe joined the Marines and served in Korea. After his tour of duty ended in 1952, he worked at the front desk of The Breakers. He then continued his career in Palm Beach with The Colony and Brazilian Court hotels, and in 1977, he returned to The Breakers as an assistant manager until his retire-ment in 1982, after which he became The Breakers historian. But until the 1970s, Palm Beach shut down for the summer; for most hotel employees on the island, that meant heading North for work. I had to get a Northern job. I worked at the Otesaga in Cooper-stown, and I met people like Mrs. Babe Ruth and Hank Greenberg,Ž he said of the city thats home to the Baseball Hall of Fame. A lot of the recipients came year after year. It was like St. Augustine because it was quite quaint there. The Clark family wanted to keep it that way. You know, they were the Coats & Clark thread, sheets and that kind of stuff.Ž He also worked at Fred Warings Shawnee Inn, which was 75 miles from New York and Philadelphia. The Pennsylv anians would come on certain occasions and sing and carry on.Ž The fun continued even at church.The priest came out and said, None of my boys showed up. Do any of you men know the Mass responses. Ed Sullivan and Don Ameche paraded up there. Don Ameche knew the Mass responses in Latin, but he was louder than the priest. But when Perry Como sang the Ave Maria at the commu-nion, Im sure the people still talk about the Mass the stars fell upon.Ž His final summer gig was at The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. It was so funny, like in April was the big social season and these people were people that had wintered in Florida, and they were gradually mov-ing north with the weather. For some reason, the Cavalier was very popular with these folks who had been liv-ing in Florida for the season. In the summertime we got secretaries from Washington, but the social season there was April into May.Ž He bought his house after he secured a year-round job at The Col-ony. He laughed, remembering, In those days, employees could afford to live in Palm Beach, but not any more. (The apartments) either have been greatly upgraded or torn down.ŽAt easeTo meet Mr. Ponce, one would never guess he is just this side of a century old. Think about it: Florida became a state in 1845; that was 169 years ago. Mr. Ponce, born in 1917, has been alive most of that time. He is as sharp as when he first came here. And he remembers so much and so many people and how much things have changed. Its refreshing,Ž said Debi Murray, senior curator at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. His handshake remains steady and his gait remains for the most part sure. He no longer drives; macular degeneration has obscured his vision. It just amazes me even though I have macular degeneration, I can see, but everything is blurred „ not so much that its blurred as theres this fog over everything,Ž he said shaking his head. Apparently I have very good peripheral vision.Ž He still lives alone with his Dalmatian, Penny. Neighbors take him shop-ping and help him attend to his bills and such. I walk her without a leash because the doctor said I couldnt walk her. Thats why I have pieces of my skull missing,Ž he said matter-of-factly, pointing to his scalp, which has a slight indent. He apparently got tangled in the dogs leash and fell. I did a perfect pancake. I saw stars.ŽDoctors patched him up and sent him home. Weeks passed and his condition deteriorated; a CAT scan revealed that he needed surgery. By that time my brain was full of blood. The surgeon at St. Marys said I was almost minutes of having a mas-sive stroke,Ž he said, petting Penny. And we made it and I didnt get mad at you. You didnt mean to knock me down, did you?Ž The historical societys Ms. Mur-ray spent three hours recording con-versations with Mr. Ponce shortly after that fall. Im the one who left exhausted because hes given you so much to think about and he can help you visu-alize things so easily,Ž she said. He still travels.When I was in Europe last year I had a nasty fall and a double hema-toma. I had to come home in a full-leg cast, but fortunately the tour company arranged for me to come back first class. I thought here I am traveling first class across the ocean and I cant enjoy it,Ž Mr. Ponce said. This years itinerary included St. Augustine and Sarasota, where he was looking forward to touring the Ring-ling Museum. He is a frequent guest at luncheons and other events „ he put in an appearance at the unveiling of a rede-sign at his former employer, The Colo-ny, and was at the Grandview Gardens to help the bed and breakfast mark its 10th anniversary. Earlier this month, he spoke to the Palm Beach Gardens Historical Society. But hes happy to relax at home.Its pretty quiet because its hot now. In wintertime, I do a lot in the garden. I still do a bit in the garden, but only in the morning. I just cant take the heat,Ž he said. I stay rela-tively busy. I do lots of luncheons. I go to This is It (caf) and I go to the Sunset Grill quite often.Ž And hes known for his first-person accounts of Henry Flagler.  Ive done that in Flagler Memorial Church in St. Augustine and in the ballroom of the Ponce de Leon, which is now Flagler College, all the way to the Villages. Ive been there three times. But I outgrew the outfit and I absolutely couldnt find a little English vest to wear. Everything just didnt look like anything Henry Fla-gler would have worn.Ž And that begs a question: Do you like Henry Flagler? No. Anyone that had much power as a result of vast fortune,Ž he said. Sometimes I say the more I found out about him the less I know. How he could have so many things going at one time? I spent days down in Miami reading his letters to Julia Tuttle, and the fact that he would get into such details. Or in his letters to managers of the hotels. He thought the green the room was painted was too dark.Ž Flagler clearly was a micromanager.The people who did his letters must have hated it because they went on and on,Ž he said. But even Flagler didnt go on and on. He died at 83, an old age for his time, but 14 years younger than Mr. Ponce is today. So what keeps him going?There wouldnt be much to do otherwise. I guess its the feeling of accomplishment.Ž He also feels wanted at The Breakers. Mr. Ponces signature style is a part of The Breakers history and recog-nized by many of our repeat guests, as well as local residents and visitors,Ž said Carmen Carbone, the resorts director of recreation. And thats why the top brass makes sure he is there. When I had to give up driving, I said I guess thats it, and Mr. Leone said no. And I have a Cadillac limou-sine and a liveried driver to chauffeur me to work,Ž he said. Thats Paul Leone, president of the Flagler Companies, which owns The Breakers. At The Breakers they only use peoples first name, but Im to be referred to as Mr. Ponce. Only Mr. Leone and I get the Mr. in front of our names and hes the president.Ž And Mr. Ponce?Well, hes the authority.

This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in todays market. The fact of the matter is that nearly three quarters of homesellers dont get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and worse financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market. As this report uncovers, most homesellers make 7 deadly mistakes that cost them literally thousands of dol-lars. The good news is that each and every one of these mistakes is entirely preventable. In answer to this issue, industry insiders have prepared a free special report entitled The 9 Step Sys-tem to Get Your Home Sold Fast and For Top DollarŽ.

Copyright 2014 Avoid these 7 critical mistakes when selling your Palm Beach Gardens home Advertorial Eye of the beholderThe Osiligi Maasai Warrior choir, from Kenya, in ornate, mystifying native cos-tumes and uncalled-for headdresses, hap-pened to be touring the U.K. this fall, coinciding with the recent Paris Fash-ion Week in which the most celebrated designers from the developedŽ world exhibited their wares, which often seemed as excessive as the Maas ais. Examples: Rei Kawakubos Blood and Roses,Ž a red KKK-type swaddling robe with face-obscuring, pointy hood. Sarah Burtons skirt of oversized petals, accessorized with skull cap and chin strap. Junya Watanabes dress with huge plastic puff sleeves of red and blue „ and vinyl see-through helmet. Julie de Librans gown with earmuff-like chest coverings. The week ended with a street march of Chanel girlsŽ (most, Cau-casian) dressed as garishly as the African Maasais. (Bonus: Some designers delight-fully offered explanations of their often-inexplicable works.) Government in actionQ Oops: The Rural Municipality of Hanover, Manitoba, has prohibited alcohol sales for more than a century „ or at least thats what everyone in the community believed as recently as 2006 when the last attempt was made to repeal the ban (and failed by 30 votes). However, town offi-cials finally decided recently to research the prohibition (examining records back to 1880) and in July revealed, astonishingly, that no city bylaw exists making the town dry. At least one restaurateur is expected to start serving booze soon.Q In August, Katja Kipping, the leader of Germanys largest opposition party (the liberal Die Linke), proposed to grant all welfare families a cash voucher of the equivalent of about $640 in order to allow each a summer vacation. For me,Ž she said, the holidays of my childhood are among the most beautiful memories,Ž and she is saddened that 3 million children this summer cannot experience what a holiday means.Ž Wait, what?Q In October in Gresham, Oregon, a 21-year-old man openly carrying a hand-gun he had just bought was robbed, at gunpoint, the same day. According to the police report, the robber apparently thought the victims gun was nicer than his own: I like your gun. Give it to me.ŽQ New World Order: In September, Dr. Sean Perry of the Marathon (Florida) Veterinary Hospital saved the life of But-tercup, an orange tabby who needed blood „ by giving him a transfusion from a West Palm Beach dog blood bank. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 62 cats have been known to receive such xenotransfusions,Ž and cats are appar-ently the only animals (besides dogs) that can safely process dog blood.Legal technicalitiesWhen a van on official business for the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, accidentally hit Megan Campbells Nissan Pathfinder in August, Campbell, naturally, filed a claim against the city for the $1,900 dam-age „ normally just a cost of business for a city and one of about 400 claims St. Paul has processed this year. However, the van happened to be driven by the same Megan Campbell, an employee of St. Paul Parks and Recreation, who apparently could not avoid hitting her own parked SUV. At press time, the city was investigating but expected to handle the claim as routine.Too much informationPauline Chai and her estranged husband, Khoo Kay Peng (a Laura Ashley executive), are battling in a London court-room in a very expensive divorce, with the current issue to determine whether the English judge has jurisdiction instead of courts in the couples native Malaysia. In the course of bringing the British judge up to date, Chai casually described how she has supported her husbands relentless nature „ by revealing that he would do copious amounts of work (for four hours at a time) at home while sitting on the toilet. Khoo got backache there,Ž she said, so I got the idea of (a) padded toilet seatŽ for him. Leading economic indicatorsThe former chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, revealed at an October conference in Chicago that even though his post-government income will be several times what he earned as Fed chairman, he was nonetheless rejected recently when he tried to refinance his Washington, D.C., home. Mortgage-lending is so highly computerized, he was told, dictated by formulas, that he appar-ently got caught in an algorithm. Despite a probably seven-figure book contract and six-figure public speeches, he is no longer employedŽ in a steady job, which appar-ently caused a computer program to signal him as too risky. Cries for helpQ Victor Thompson, 46, arrested in St. Petersburg in October for possession of the synthetic marijuana called Master Kush Spice (which he insisted is legal in his native New Hampshire), is apparently an out-of-control New England Patriots fan „ having tattooed his entire bald head with a painstaking replica of quarterback Tom Bradys helmet. The attention to detail on the design and colors is remark-able, including subtle add-ons such as the American flag, NFL logo and helmet man-ufacturer (RiddellŽ). Not only is Bradys 12Ž properly placed, so is the green dot identifying the helmetŽ as radio-ready for messages from the sideline.Q Police in Minneapolis arrested Nicholas Mullenmaster, 38, as the man who inexplicably flushed nails and other pieces of metal down toilets of several restau-rants causing thousands of dollarsŽ in damages.

A24 WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY End of the equity market’s happy story hard to predictThe equity markets have been telling a largely cheerful story for the past five years. There have been some hiccups along the way ƒ but not too many. After five years and seven months of an equity bull market, investors are now scratching their heads. They are wondering what comes next: more of a bear or resumption of a bull equity market? Many equity and bond investors have stayed the course through several years. They have benefited from the world cen-tral b anks many aggressive steps to lower rates/keep rates low. These investors will go through some mental wrangling, but, as these investors are accustomed to the Federal Reserves and other central banks prior curative actions, they are inclined to side with the power of these banks, par-ticularly the Fed, to fix any future market and future economic ills. Dont fight the Fed!Ž is a classic 50 year-plus investment expression. In the current case, it begs the question, What is the Fed to do next?Ž The Fed has been planning to end its purchases of longer-term U.S. gov-ernment debt. The several programs of Quantitative Easings have collectively been a gargantuan monetary program; the Fed has purchased trillions of U.S. gov-ernment debt. There is little investment banter about the end of the QE program. The reason that the end of QE govern-ment bind purchases is being ignored is: 1) Many investors do not believe that these programs were important to the financial markets, both in the market valuation of debt or equities. 2) Everyone is focused on the Fed funds rate (the rate of interest charged by the Fed to member banks). They want to know the when and how much this rate might increase. So, when that end of QE does come, it will be interesting to see how the markets respond „ particularly the bond market. When QE ends, will rates immediately jump higher and bonds lose value? Will equities loose value? Equity investors often think that the world revolves around the equity market, as it makes the headlines and captures much of the jabberwocky of cable news programs. But in fact, the worlds financial markets, including equity markets, revolve around the global debt markets. Thats simply due to the sheer size of the debt market and that the cost of capital impacts the bottom-line profits of corporations. The stats show that the total size of the world stock market capitalizations closed 2013 at $54.6 trillion, which was only 25 percent of the total world market capitalization „ the rest being bonds. The bond market is larger than the stock market for various reasons. Whereas only corporations issue stocks, governments and corporations both issue fixed income securities. The U.S. Treasury is the larg-est issuer of bonds worldwide.Ž (Martin Armstrongs Blog, Oct. 22, 2014) Mr. Armstrong is rightly concerned that a rise in interest rates will end the bond bull market and may result in the poppingŽ of a global bond bubble. It is the opinion of many that the sovereign debt crisis has not gone away, has not been solved, and will ultimately return to a crisis state in the respective countries government debt markets. So two factors weigh heavily on the fate of bonds: possible increase in rates by the Fed and governmental bond crisis brewed across the Atlantic. Sometimes equity markets can take a huge hit and the economy can continue without a depression. Just take a look at Japans correction, which took 81 percent off the peak valuation for the Nikkei 225 (Dec. 29, 1989, to March 10, 2009). Take a look at China. The Shanghai Composite Index is still down 62 percent from its 2007 peak, but the Chinese economy has contin-ued to grow at very high rates, often above 7 percent since 2007. How could such equity drops not have caused a depression? Because the bull market in bonds was still intact and these countries and their corpo-rations could still borrow money and grow their way out of their market ills. But a huge drop in the bond market can cause a depression. It is Mr, Armstrongs position that the 1929 and ensuing years drop in bond valuations created the Depres-sion. Clearly it would have been rough sled-ding with just a collapsed equity market. But an economy can find its way out of a crest-fallen equity market if there is availability of capital and reasonable cost of capital. No one knows the future, the past never exactly repeats itself and this pres-ent is so unlike the past that there would be no way to connect prior economic dots of information that predict the future. We have never had a set of circumstances as we currently have. Investors should talk to their advisers and figure some strategies to withstand a bond bear market. It might be that your advisor will create a ladderedŽ portfolio of differing maturities. But you will still have to decide if you want that laddered portfolio to be in government bonds, cor-porate bonds, mortgages or bank CDs, etc. We just do not know the last chapter of this current economic cycle and you should prepare yourself for a variety of market changes.

A26 WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY KOVEL: ANTIQUES Soda shop implements a treat for nostalgic collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Ice cream scoops, soda fountain syrup dispensers and urns, advertisements, even old soda glasses and sundae dishes are selling quickly. Nostalgia has kept the prices high for things that bring back memories of the old-fashioned drugstore soda fountain. A white ceramic Craw-for ds Cherry-Fizz syrup dispenser with gold, orange, green and red lettering and nine cherries as decorations auctioned for $19,200 at Morphy Auctions August 2014 sale in Denver, Pa. It was just one of the 130 syrup dispensers in the auction. Seventy percent of them sold for more than $1,000. Prices were high because the syrup dispensers were in good to great condition and had their pumps and all other parts. A record price for a dispenser was set at the same auction: $69,000 for a Pepsi-Cola syrup urn in excellent condition that we think resembles pieces of 1904 Roseville pottery by Freder-ick Hurten Rhead.Q: Years ago, I bought an old wooden diction-ary stand. Its about 3 feet tall, has angled sides and two lower shelves. Theres a small metal plate on the bottom shelf that reads Baker Office Furniture Co., Pitts-burg, Pa.Ž There is no hŽ in Pittsburg. Can you tell me something about it so I can pass it on to younger family members? Does it have any value?A: Your dictionary stand was made between 1891 and 1911. Pennsylv anias city of Pittsburg was chartered in 1816 and the spelling of the name changed a few times. In 1891, the United States Board on Geographic Names ruled that the official spelling was without an h.Ž The deci-sion was reversed in 1911. Edward Enzer Baker opened the first office furniture store in the country in 1889. In 1913 Baker Office Furniture Co. advertised a reorga-nization sale, offering old office furniture for sale and offering to buy used office furniture or taking it as partial payment for new furniture. The company was still in business in the 1920s. The value of your dictionary stand: $95 to $250. Q: I have a lamp with a pillow base that has a cast-bronze cat sitting on it. The cats tail forms the lamps stem. On the pillow is a medallion that has a fleur-de-lis inside a square and the words Collection Francaise, Made in U.S.A.Ž I bought the lamp at an auction. A man has now offered me double what I paid. Should I sell? A: Your lamp isnt bronze. Its made of spelter, a zinc alloy less valuable than bronze. Its also called French Bronze.Ž In 1907 J.B. Hirsch, a Romanian metal-smith, started the New York Metal Art Bronze Works in Manhattan to import pieces from French foundries. After World War I, he traveled to Paris, bought the companys molds and opened J.B. Hirsch, his own casting foundry, in the United States. During the 1930s, J.B. Hirsch made figural French BronzeŽ lamps. From 1948 to 1963, Hirsch and his son Abraham reassembled hundreds of original bronze molds hidden dur-ing World War II. J.B. Hirsch is still in business in New Jersey as a division of Richmond Lighting. Your lamp probably was made in the 1960s or 1970s and is worth about $200. Now you can decide whether to sell the lamp. Q: I discovered some old wooden tennis rackets while going through some old things. Theyre from the 1970s and are in good condition with no broken strings. Are they collectible? A: Almost anything associated with tennis is collected, including vintage rackets, metal cans that held balls, cov-ers, presses, programs, etc. Early tennis rackets were made of layers of wood glued together and strung with gut. Metal rackets became popular in the late 1960s. Some collectors look for rackets made before 1920, some for racquets from a certain maker or endorsed by a professional player, and some for endorsed racquets that include a photo decal of the player. Wooden racquets should be kept in a wooden press or frame to prevent warping. You can find old rackets at garage sales and house sales, thrift stores, online, or at auctions. They sell for prices from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars, depending on desirability, rarity and condition. Q: I bought six silver spoons at a garage sale a couple of years ago. They are 5 1/2 inches long and have a dragon on the front. They are marked on the back with DKŽ in a diamond and E.P.Ž I tried to find information on these but had no luck. Can you tell me how old they are and how much theyre worth? A: The letters E.P.Ž stand for electroplate, a method of coating metal with a layer of silver that uses electric current. The mark DKŽ may be for D.K. & Co., a company in Japan. Dragons are popular Japanese decorations. We found a pair of silver seafood forks marked DKŽ decorated with pagodas for sale online for $30. Your spoons probably were made after 1930. Value of your set of six spoons: about $75. Tip: The acid or sulfur in eggs, onions, mayonnaise, tart salad dressing and salt will corrode the surface of sil-ver or silver plate.

Cherry-Fizz was a drink made from soda water and cherry-flavored syrup. Although the first soda fountains opened in the United States in the early 1800s, they were most popular in the 1940s and 1950s. This Cherry-Fizz dispenser sold for $19,200 at a 2014 Morphy auction held in Denver, Pa. AN ALTERNATIVE TO MONEY MARKET FUNDS October has once again proven to be a very difficult month for investors. Back on September 19, the Dow Jones Indus-trial Average DJIAŽ and the S&P 500 SPXŽ reached their all time highs. The widely followed IPO of Alibaba Group Holding also began trading that day. Since then, both of these indi-ces have tumbled due to a variety of concerns including the Ebola threat, the ISIS incursion in the Middle East, and the continuing tensions between Russia and Ukraine.Oil prices have also declined noticeably. Both West Texas Intermediate crude oil and Brent crude oil have experienced price declines of more than 20% since June as reported by Reuters, October 17. The price drop is due to the economic slowdowns in Europe and China.There may be other reasons for the decline in crude oil prices. On October 14, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman wrote Is it just my imagination or is there a global oil war underway pitting the United States and Saudi Ara-bia on one side against Russia and Iran on the other?Ž Mr. Friedman pointed out in this story that oil export revenues account for about 60 percent of Irans government revenues and more than half of Russias.As a result of the declining oil prices, Moodys downgraded Russian sovereign debt to Baa2, the second lowest invest-ment grade. Russias currency, the ruble, has also suffered in foreign exchange trading. As reported on its website October 18, The ruble has lost 13 percent against the dollar in the past three months, more than any other currency tracked by Bloomberg, extending its drop this year to 19 percent.ŽWith all of this turmoil around the globe, interest rates have also declined as investors sought out safe havens. The 10 year US Treasury note has seen its yield decline from above 2.60% earlier this Summer to below 1.90% on October 15. Meanwhile, the German 10 year note reached an all time low yield of .715% as reported by October 16.Takeover stocks have also suffered price declines. Three companies of note are Time Warner Cable TWCŽ, Directv DTVŽ and Lorillard ŽLOŽ. Each firm is a member of the S&P 500. Even though the acquisition of these three companies are now subject to long regulatory reviews, the acquisition of each of these firms is expected to be finalized during the first half of 2015.TWC and LO both pay quarterly dividends. TWC yields above 2% while LO yields above 4%. Based on their prior dividend history, both TWC and LO are expected to trade ex-dividend during the week of Thanksgiving, about one month away. All three of these companies offer an attractive rate of return assuming the deals are completed. The potential share price appreciation, along with the dividends (in the case of TWC and LO) is something conservative investors should consider given the low interest rate environment.If you are unhappy with the returns offered by money mar-ket funds, feel free to contact us.

Giannetti Chief Training Of“ cer, Lang RealtyNinja Selling InstructorRMT Strategic Intervention CoachCerti“ ed Mediator RealtorLang Realty6721 PGA Boulevard, Suite 200 PBG601 Heritage Dr., Suite 152Jupiter, FL ASK THE SALES TRAINER Know Can DoQuestion:Does training really work in the real estate business or are sales people simply born that way?Answer:The real estate business is flooded with training opportunities. You can train to prepare for your real estate exam. You can earn credits for continuing education. And, of course, there are a number of training companies, coaches, and resources that may prepare you for your career. BUT, does any of this work? It really is a fair question. And. the answer is....It Depends. You may ask: “Depends on what?” Another fair question. The answer: “It depends on you.” Statistically, 24% of the success that derives from a training event is actually a result from the training event. So, as good as an event may be, it is really just a portion of what is to follow. 26% actually is connected to WHO attends the training. Their ambition, experience, need, willingness to learn and more importantly, do, all plays a part. That said, even with a great event with eager and experienced attendees, we are talking a 50-50 chance at making things significantly better. If you’re waiting for the big answer, here it is. 50% of the success attributed to training is the post training follow up. The manager that holds you accountable. The small group or personal coaching experience that removes the barriers that hold you back and help you breakthrough through to the next level. Aristotle said: “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. The fact is however, that most people in the business, no matter how many courses they go to, rarely turn this knowledge into action. Most start off string, motivated and perched for success, but few continue to build the rituals that will bring them referrals and riches. The good news is, this can work. What you Know, you “Can Do” and it is simply a matter of finding the Three C’s. Clarity regarding what you want. A Commitment to your outcome, and The right Company that will support you in this endeavor. After all, your level of success is also determined by the expectations of your peer group. Who you surround yourself with matters. If you would like a FREE TOOL to help you create greater Clarity and Commitment, feel free to email me at and we will send you the information. — Dennis Giannetti is the Chief Training Officer for Lang Realty.

Festival organizers have not forgotten the festival diehards, either. The art indie crowd will really go for Charlies Country, Sombras de Azul, Magic Men and Cannes Winner Winter Sleep. The two Italian films, Human Capital and Viva La Liberta couldnt be more different „ one a sus-pense mystery and the other a political comedy, but both have an intrinsic Ital-ian charm. The French comedy, The Volcano, is built purely for laughs as is the dark comedy from Georgia, Lost in Karastan,Ž Mr. von Hausch said. There also is plenty of material from the United States. Our American Indies include dramas Fall to Rise, Foreign Land and comedies Loitering with Intent, Gone Doggie Gone and Just Before I Go,Ž he said, adding the festival would include documentaries and short films.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2014 | 5:30 TO 8:00 PM THE FOUR ARTS KING LIBRARY3 FOUR ARTS PLAZA | PALM BEACH MEDIA PARTNER: Ridding the world of puppy mills would bring him joyPhilanthropist James Berwind sits on the Humane Society national council and this year is co-chairing the Humane Societ ys annual Palm Beach gala. We conducted the interview at his new, Bermuda style home on Palm Beach.EP: Youre a notoriously private person. Why did you agree to do this interview? JB: Because I want to talk about my biggest cause these days „ puppy mills. EP: They are horrible things „ tell me how you found out about them? JB: Well, it didnt dawn on me that the cute puppies you see in stores all come from these horrible places called puppy mills, until I got my Labradoodle, Riley. She was a mother at the mill. When I got her she had a distended stomach, a tumor (that I had removed) and ear infections. I said to her, I know youve had a horrible life, but Im going to do everything in my power to give you the best life from here on out. It wasnt until about 2 years after I got her when I was walking her on Flagler, when I knew she had become happy. I saw her walking with her head straight up and her tail wagging. I would love to get rid of puppy mills and thats why Im so involved with the Humane Society because they are working to change the laws when it comes to puppy mills. EP: Its a great cause. But how about we switch to a few lighter topics. What did you have for breakfast this morning? JB: Tea. EP: Thats it? JB: Usually I have a soft-boiled egg. My favorite food is nachos. EP: I really would have taken you for a foodie, sounds like you are not. JB: Not at all. I love grilled cheese too. My partner (Kevin) is the foodie in the family. EP: So when I ask you if you were a fruit what kind of fruit would you be, I wonder what you will sayƒ JB: A banana. Because I like them, they are a cool color and Josephine Baker used to wear them as a skirt. (we paused the interview here for a second because we all started laughing). EP: So, you moved from New Hampshire to Palm Beach, why? JB: I studied architecture and love the history of architecture. Im also an amateur gardener and this (Palm Beach) is all eye candy. Even the medians in the street are immaculate. EP: Your new home is beautiful. JB: Its a fun house that appreciates the land that its on. We didnt want to build another McMansion. So we went to Bermuda to learn the true style. I wanted the home to honor the Bermudian architecture. It doesnt take itself too seriously. I would say its a quirky, whimsical and fun home. EP: Sounds like those are words one would use to describe you. JB: Yes, and I would add unexpected. Kevin: (James partner for seven years jumped in at this point) I would say James is a real person. Material things mean nothing to him, its all about quality of life. JB: Yeah, all I need is a person that can make me laugh. We can be best friends if you have a wicked sense of humor and give me a good laugh! Q „ Emily Pantiledes, a former TV news anchor, owns a public relations firm.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B3 THEATER REVIEWWick’s energetic, joyful ‘Swing’ will spoil South Florida audiences BY BILL HIRSCHMANSpecial to Florida WeeklyBodies seem to fly through the air and end up in a plethora of entwined positions worthy of a terpsichorean Kama Sutra in The Wick Theatre s thrilling musical revue Swing.Ž Savor the soaring voices, most steps found in the dance catalog plus some youve not seen, a kick-butt octet of musicians who sound like time travel-ers from the Big Band Era and a gross of carefully coordinated costumes parad-ed across a beautifully lit Art Deco set. And indulge yourself in one of the most energetic and uniformly talented dance corps weve seen down here in many a year. This will spoil South Florida audiences for years to come as to what a musical revue should be. You dont even have to like this kind of show or this music to be carried away by the enthusiasm and imagination. Many companies wisely turn to cabaret revues as a cost-effective way of pro-viding satisfying mainstream entertain-ment, especially for an older crowd. But in its second season opener, the Wick has doubled down its first season bet by hiring a crew of Florida and imported talent who bring a level of skill that is noticeably a cut above what you nor-mally see in this genre. Much of the success is due to musical director Paul Reekie (a vet of shows for Arts Garage and Palm Beach Dra-maworks) and, even more so, to recent Miami transplant Kelly Shook (in The Wicks White ChristmasŽ) whose cho-reography and direction is as imagina-tive and varied as can be conceived. The penny-bright polish, precision and verve that these two have imposed elevates this celebration of music and movement from jitterbugging to coun-try line-dancing. SwingŽ is a 2000 Tony-nominated paean look at the Big Band Era through three dozen standards delivered by 14 singer-dancers. The evening, origi-nally conceived by Paul Kelly, has no overarching plot or dialogue, although many of the dance numbers tell a self-contained story in the abstract way that Gene Kelly film numbers used to. But there is nothing stale or simple. Vitality pulses through the evening. A few photos to paste in the scrapbook: The lovely Lindsay Bell and knifesharp Charles South are paired off in some of most outstanding moments of the show, but never better than in an elegant delicate pas de deux that melds en pointe ballet with modern dance in Ill Be Seeing You.Ž Phillip Attmore and local stalwart Christopher George Patterson leading the group in a percussive tap to Charlie Parkers Bills BounceŽ that threatens to break through the floorboards of the stage. The rail-thin Ashley Klinger in several numbers in which she does splits, leg extensions and just movements with her limbs that seem impossible. Although they dance a bit, much of the singing is carried by the solid baritone of Michael Ursua, a frequent musical director at The Wick, and Alix Paige, a Florida native who has returned for shows at Arts Garage and Palm Beach Dramaworks, and who hits stratospheric notes here. Every dancer can sing, but Shook and Reekie astutely identified Amelia Mil-lar as having one of the loveliest voices in the entire troupe. She proves it with heartbreaking nondancing renditions of Johnny Mercers SkylarkŽ and later Cry Me A River.Ž Every member of the cast gets moments to shine and they all deserve mention: Chris Brand, Andy Frank, Tommy Joscelyn, Mandy Modic, Aman-da Torsilleri and Casey Weems. But the big news is that The Wick has hired a live band after saving money last season using digital music for all but the last show. The bright, full sound makes all the difference. The most memorable moment of the entire evening is Jason Pyles expres-sive trombone in a musical conversa-tion with Millars crooning Cry Me A River.Ž (Youll be humming this for an hour after the show ends). Veteran local hand Sean McClelland is now The Wicks resident set designer. For years, McClelland has created impressive environments for small theaters with virtually no budget such as his war-torn hell in Outr The-atre Companys An Illiad.Ž But now, with some money to work with, he has created a gorgeous period bandstand and jazz club under Art Deco arches, evocatively lit by Jose Santiago whose designs snap from one to the other on the opening beat of a segue. The sole gripe is that while the sound design itself by Peter Moran is fine, especially on the band, flashes of feed-back erupted several times opening night. Plus, microphones either cut out or the person on the soundboard was slow on the draw switching to whoever was singing. All that should be worked out in a day or two. Heads snapping, limbs elevated at every angle, men flipping women around their backs like Hula Hoops, and expressions of pure joy suffusing everyones Pepsodent smiles. SwingŽ is an unqualified delight.SwingŽ plays through Nov. 16 at The Wick Theatre, 7901 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Performances 2 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday; 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. Running time is about 1 hours 50 minutes including one intermission. All parking is complimentary valet.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7Nov. 23. The objects on display in the show come from the collection of Elke Brock-way. Ms. Brockway, who was raised in East Berlin during World War II, had always dreamed of world travel. After studying French at the Institute International and specializing in his-tory and culture at the Sorbonne, she joined Air France as a flight attendant. There, she traveled to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo, the Middle East, China and the Pacific. And along the way, she acquired a few precious souvenirs. Three galleries of the Norton home „ essentially, the former living, din-ing and sun rooms „ are packed with objects from the Vero Beach r esidents collection that take visitors on a journey through the reach of the great kings empire. Sculptures, reliquaries, tapestries, Greco-Roman sculpture, vases, mosa-ics, glassware, bronzes, Persian ceram-ics, Gandharan Buddhas, Chinese antiq-uities and more. That translates into millennia of art and artifacts that also happen to be for sale. Take for example the tabletop in the middle of the Nortons living room. Its actually a 74-inch section of an octagonal mosaic floor that dates from the third to fourth century A.D. There is something almost unbearably moving in being able to touch the elaborate geometric patterns that the feet of Romans trod upon 1,700 years ago. That experience carries a price: $35,000. Sitting upon that mosaic are objects even more fragile „ the classic Grecian urns upon which Keats and others have written odes. Described as a Greek Red Figure Bell Krater, the terracotta piece, which was used as a bowl for mixing wine and water, dates from the second half of the fourth century B.C. It, too, can be yours for $18,000. A case of Roman glass and ceramic objects stands at a nearby wall. You wonder how the pieces survived the centuries then you look at a tiny blue glass amphora and realize that its deco-rations are cased glass „ not paint, not enamel. Its a complicated process even in todays world of evenly regulated furnaces and consistency of ingredi-ents. Now, imagine it happening in the Iron Age. A bronze helmet dating from the eighth to the fifth centuries B.C. is simi-lar in style to what Alexanders army would have worn on their campaigns. Its amazing to see how much smaller people were in build centuries ago „ the helmet is almost child-size by todays standards. Step into another gallery and visit another part of Alexanders empire. A Gandharan stucco Buddha has all the appearances of something from what is now modern-day Pakistan. But look again: the Enlightened One has Greco-Roman features, right down to his wavy locks of hair. Richly hued tex-tiles serve as backdrops for some of the objects. Visit the final gallery of objects from the Far East then wander back past the mosaics. Allow your hand to caress bits of stone that were hand-cut and hand-set nearly 2,000 years ago, and realize that youre touching history. Prepare to leave amazed. Q ALEXANDERFrom page 1 Stiff,Ž directed by Christopher Ashley at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts Amaturo Theater. Actress Pamela Shaw also will attend. Mr. Alexander also will receive a Career Achievement Award. Actress Clara Mamet will be present for her directorial debut Two-Bit Waltz,Ž a character study in which she plays the lead role, a part not too differ-ent from herself. Her mother, Rebecca Pidgeon, plays her mother in the film. Her father in real life is playwright David Mamet, but in the film William H. Macy assumes the role of father. The hardest part was not quitting, being brave enough to go through with it. But it wasnt as hard as everyone else thought it would be ƒ It was a lot of fun,Ž said Ms. Mamet, who also is receiving a Star on the Horizon Award. The centerpiece film, Frank vs. God,Ž showing Nov. 14 at the Sunrise Civic Center, will bring in the director Stewart Schill. The film follows Frank (Henry Ian Cusick) as his life falls apart and he decides to sue God for the dam-ages, with Ever Carradine playing the opposing attorney. Mr. Cusick also may attend. Mr. Schill came from Los Angeles to Florida to make the film, enticed by Valencia College in Orlando, which he successfully worked with before. He shot in Orlando and also other areas, such as West Palm Beach. He found shooting in Florida to be a positive experience, saying that area film commissions helped. He also was able to shoot in difficult to obtain loca-tions, like places of worship and the Orlando state prison, which had not let anyone film there for 20 years. Some locations let him film for free. There is a pretty big talent pool here. I really was happy with the actors,Ž he said. Also slated to attend is Daniel Baldwin, who will accompany his film The Wisdom to Know the DifferenceŽ and will receive a Renaissance Award. Palm Beachs own man with a tan, George Hamilton, will receive a Life-time Achievement Award and take the stage at Cinema Paradiso in Fort Lau-derdale on Nov. 22 to relive some of his memories, loves and favorite roles. British Filmmaker Mike Downer will receive Producer of the Decade and will attend screenings of his black comedy Lost in Karastan.Ž Most award win-ners will be honored at the Chairmans black-tie Awards Gala, Nov. 21 at The Diplomat Resort. Courteney Cox will have her directorial debut with the dark comedy Just Before I GoŽ closing night. Florida filmmakers also will turn out for the festival. Lou Pappas of Pompano Beach won Best of Florida at FLIFF last year with his film The Last HitŽ and has returned this year with his film The Consulta-tion.Ž Another returning director is Robert Adanto, whose film Pearls on the Ocean FloorŽ won a Spirit of Indepen-dence Award in 2012. Now, he is back with another documentary, City of Memory,Ž which offers a perspective on New Orleans in the aftermath of Hur-ricane Katrina.

Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson appointed a seven-member commission to investigate the assas-sination. In its report, the Warren Commission determined that there was no credible evidenceŽ conflict-ing with its conclusion of a lone gun-man, a statement that was immediate-ly subject to intense public scrutiny that, an incredible five decades later, has not subsided. Artist Ernie Coln, bestselling illustrator of The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation,Ž teams up with author Dan Mishkin to provide a unique means of testing the commis-sion s findings. The Warren Commission Report: A Graphic Investigation into the Ken-nedy AssassinationŽ breaks down how decisions in the days that followed the assassination not only shaped how the commission reconstructed events but also helped foster con-spiracy theories. In time for the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the report to Pres-ident Johnson in 1964, The Warren Commission Report uses the comics medium to provide a unique means of testing the commissions claim, using graphic storytelling techniques to unravel competing narratives and make plain how decisions taken in the days that followed the events in Dallas shaped the way those events would be reconstructed by the com-mission. Dan Mishkin is a comic book writer with more than 30 years experience, including adaptations of properties such as Star Trek.Ž Ernie Coln has drawn and written comics in many genres for more than five decades, including The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation.Ž and Anne Frank: The Anne Frank House Authorized Graphic Biography. He has overseen the production of titles such as Green Lantern,Ž Wonder Woman,Ž Blackhawk,Ž SpidermanŽ and The Flash.Ž The Warren Commission Report is available on, and in book stores everywhere.

Young Singers of the Palm Beaches starts choir in western communities SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYYoung Singers of the Palm Beaches has introduced a new satellite chorus, offer-ing free music education to the children of Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay and Canal Point. The Choir in the GladesŽ was unveiled last month at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade. Joining the Young Singers were several community leaders, officials and busi-ness representatives, including South Bay Mayor Shanique Scott; Pahokee City Commissioner Diane Walker; Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Council Leader Donia Roberts; PBSO Chief Dep-uty Michael Gauger; and representatives from Congressman Alcee Hastings office, the Red Cross, Florida Crystals, and the Sugar Growers Cooperative. I ts exciting to know that we will be doing this arts project, to make a dif-ference,Ž School Board member Marcia Andrews said in a prepared statement. We know that arts and academics strive to make better citizens.Ž The board of directors and staff of Young Singers are aware of the large amount of untapped talent among the underserved children of the Glades region. Their desire to bring a childrens choir to the area was met with tremen-dous favor and fervor. Palm Beach County Sheriff Chief Deputy Michael Gauger, described the reason perfectly. What these programs like Young Singers do is give a child the opportunity to build self esteem,Ž Deputy Gauger said It gives them hope. It gives them direction. It helps them with team work, and how important is that.Ž Demonstration of Young Singers of the Palm Beaches high-caliber childrens choral instruction was evidenced in a performance by three current YSPB choir members: 2nd grader Alexa LaSanta, 11th grade student Renee Poskitt, and 5th grader Hunter-Lynn Bhagwandeen. The program has been made possible by a 3-year grant from the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties through the John D. and Cath-erine T. MacArthur Fund.. One of the goals for this years arts and culture grant making was to support projects that focus on bridging cultural divides,Ž said Michael Hurlbert, Commu-nity Foundation president and CEO. The Young Singers new choir in the western communities is a shining example of a program that has the potential to unite the community in a unique way.Ž Choir in the GladesŽ will be offered at no charge. Auditions will be held at various elementary schools in the area, as well as at an open audition on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at the First United Methodist Church of Pahokee and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church in Belle Glade.

Stay with it, and eventually your message will get through and be understood.

The only restrictions confronting the artists are the range of colors in their painting, drawing, mixed media, photography and sculpture. They are challenging themselves and the viewer to slow down and take in the details and emotion conveyed by the art. These professional artists are pushing the boundaries of their cho-sen media,Ž Cultural Council presi-dent and CEO Rena Blades said in a statement. In doing so, their art-work reflects and supports the coun-cils position that Palm Beach County is Floridas cultural capital.Ž Nichole M. Hickey, manager of artist services at the council, said she seeks out opportunities to shine a spotlight on local talent from a new perspective. In an attempt to diversify our exhibitions and programming, we try to reach new audiences and to keep the art fresh and exciting. Mono-chromatic work can evoke ideas and feelings in the viewer that they may not have expected,Ž Ms. Hickey said. Opening the same time as Monochrome,Ž is a special photographic exhibition by Sue Patterson, who has been working with her husband, bestselling author James Patterson, on a television documentary called Murder of a Small Town.Ž The documentary explores the history of violent crime in Newburgh, N.Y. „ James Pattersons hometown, and Belle Glade „ near the Patter-sons current home in Palm Beach County. Jim communicates in words. I communicate in pictures. In this film we got to combine our talents. And I love the result,Ž Mrs. Patterson said. Both Sue and James Patterson are expected to attend the preview party. Artists featured in MonochromeŽ are Vincent Cacace, Joel Cohen, Misoo Filan, Mark Forman, Stephen Futej, Jacek Gancarz, William Hal-liday, Mimie Langlois, Kandy Lopez, Sally Ordile, Michael Price, Scherer & Ouporov, Thomas L. Tribby and Harvey Zipkin. Admission to the preview party on Thursday, Oct. 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., is free to Cultural Council members, $20 for nonmembers, and includes admission to the artist trunk shows featuring Aerides Designs and Susan Peck. The MonochromeŽ exhibition is free and open to the public from October 31 to December 6.

By Ron Wiggins.. You never stop being a kid to your mom and as a dutiful son I was careful to protect her from information that would only upset her. On planning my series of visits to the Authentic Florida,Ž I let slip to my aged and ailing mom that I was returning to the happiest site of my child-hood, C amp OLeno State Park. Evelyn (Mrs. Macdonald J.) Wiggins promptly threw a conniption fit. Dont you dare jump off that bridge!Ž You see, OLeno boasts one of the worlds prime jumping bridges, spanning the Santa Fe River a dizzying 21 feet above the surface. I used to jump off that bridge, and somehow the word got out through the mom grapevine that because of that bridge, every Boy Scout camping trip to OLeno was an adventure in attempted mass suicide. Back in 1954 there was no choice but to jump. You jumped or you didnt have a hair on your scrawny rump. Although the water was refreshingly cold and spring fed, it was darker than strong tea and we had no idea how deep. Beyond the rocks a mile down river was the whirlpool, a forbidding mael-strom of black water that disappeared into the ground at a huge sinkhole. As leg-end had it, the river reappeared out of the ground 3 miles distant and continued its sojourn to the Suwannee River. For once, legend had it right: the river is reborn at River Rise Park between OLeno and High Springs, off SR 41. Add camping, canoeing, a swimming dock and snipe-hunting unexcelled in North Central Florida, and you had Troop 202s favorite camping spot. Let us return to my moms assisted living residence where we find my mother in mid hissy fit over my intention of returning to Camp OLeno and my prompt declaration that I would not be jumping off the bridge. With great cer-emony I withdrew from my pocket a ball of twine and a 2-ounce fishing sinker. She regarded me dubiously. However,Ž I said, I am going to do what we should have done 48 years ago and see just how close we came to killing ourselves. Im going to use this weight and string to sound the river bottom from the bridge.Ž Then I reminded her that my father, the scoutmaster, also jumped off that bridge, so how dangerous could it have been? Your father didnt have bat brains!Ž Q „For the rest of this chapter and all 52 adventures, ask your library for Florida Authentica.Ž Buy or download the book at or order at

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 5, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B23The Dish: Bistec de pollo empanizado The Place: Havana, 6801 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 547-9799 or The Price: $13.99 The Details: Over the years, this has been a go-to dish for us at various Cuban restaurants. It has been tasty just about everywhere, but Havana is among the best „ ma ybe thats why such chefs as Daniel Boulud gather near the takeout window after hours for caf and snacks. For this dish, cooks pound out boneless chicken breast until its quite thin, lightly bread it, fry it and top it with onions. The chicken is always tender, never tough, and the breading offers just a slight crunch that goes down easily with the slices of onion. The meal was served with rice and beans, but we gorged ourselves on the chicken and had to take our sides of yel-low rice and black beans home, where they made a hearty meal on their own. Also worth trying: the black paella, a weekend special that was loaded with tender shrimp, mussels, fish and crab. Good, and good for you. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Theres a cult in Northern Palm Beach County „ a Food Shack cult. Ever since the Jupiter restaurant opened in 2002, people have lined up to dine at the res-taurant. Were not speaking figuratively, either. Lines out the door prompted restaura-teur Mike Moir to open a second res-taurant next to Food Shack in 2010, and since then, the adjoining Maxis Lineup has virtually served as a waiting room for Food Shack, complete with its own daily menu and an event space that hosts live music most evenings. Food Shack seats 62 patrons, and Maxis holds an additional 37. Loyal cus-tomers fill both spaces for their ever-changing menus. Daily menus are decided depending upon seasonal ability and whats being caught or grown, as well as other unique ingredients the staff is able to find. The day or night time crew write each shift menu,Ž Mr. Moir said. There is always a shift Sous Chef on duty when our Head Chef Drew Shimkus isnt on. That person leads the menu, but every-one has a part of each menu.Ž No two nights are ever the same at Food Shack, even though popular items serve as menu staples. The most popular dish on the menu is the sweet potato crusted fish of your choice. The flavorful and distinctive dish accounts for 30 percent of the restau-rants business. Another one of the restaurants anchor items is Indoroni,Ž a macaroni and cheese bowl that blends together chick-en, red onion, garlic chili sauce, parme-san, and toasted garlic. Its billed as the ultimate hangover cure. Thats how it got onto the menu. I made it one day for a guy who was hung over, and he told me I should put it on the menu, so I did,Ž he said. His customers are not shy about trying new things. For the most part, my clientele are very adventurous diners. They expect the unusual from us now,Ž he says. Ask Mr. Moir what keeps people coming back to Food Shack, Maxis Lineup, and another restaurant under his Lit-tle Moirs umbrella, Leftovers (also in Jupiter, but seven miles away), and the answer is relatively simple „ consistency (Garage VV in West Palm Beachs Northwood neighborhood is his wife, Viviennes, project). Its about 70 percent of business,Ž Mr. Moir said. My crew gets it and takes ownership in their roles. Also, having an open kitchen and direct contact with customers plays a huge role.Ž Name: Mike Moir Age: 44 Original hometown: Markham, Ontario, Canada Restaurant: Little Moirs Food Shack, 103 S. U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter; 741-3626 or Mission: My mission in business is the same as in my personal life: to work hard every day; to continue to challenge myself and my team; to push the limits with our combinations and to take chances or be afraid, no matter how weird it may be. My goal is to treat our customers and staff like family and make them feel welcome and comfortable like theyre in my home. I also want to keep cooking and dining fun, just like youre at home cooking for a party with all of your buddies around.Ž Cuisine: This is a tricky question because my style of cooking all depends on the day, my mood, the season, and the weather. Its mainly international cuisine,Ž with ideas, creations, and com-binations from all parts of the globe „ just like North America is a combination and medley of all cultures „ only with a subtropical, South Florida twist.Ž Training: I started washing dishes 30 years ago at age 14, and Jan. 1, 2015 will be my 30-year anniversary cooking. I was trained in Canada. I did a four-year gov-ernment sponsored apprenticeship pro-gram with two years of intense schooling in Humber Colleges Certified Chef de Cuisine program. I finished my appren-ticeship at T he Sutt on Place Hotel in downtown Toronto in 1990.Ž Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Dr. Martens. I love them!Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to become a chef or restaurateur? Make sure youre passionate about people. Its a people busi-ness. Dont get caught up in the mindset that this business will be easy or glamor-ous. It has its moments, but its a tough business for anyone„and its especially tough for those who lose their passion or dont have it to begin. I personally love it because I love the feeling of being on a team and creating. It can be very reward-ing when you include everyone and work and grow together as a team. Last-ly, be patient. Patience is truly important in this business.Ž Q In the kitchen with...MIKE MOIR, Little Moir’s Food Shack THE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY BY BRITTANY MILLERSpecial to Florida Weekly SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYMike Moir opened Little Moir’s Food Shack in Jupiter in 2002.
