The Berger Banner
Palm Beach County
Vice Mayor Mary Lou Berger, District 5
L to R: Laura Kallas & Connie Berry of Caridad, Vice Mayor Berger
with Anne and Norman Jacobson of the JFS Food Pantry
The New Year is off to an amazing
start! In addition to being elected
Vice Mayor of Palm Beach County
(PBC) I have been placed on the
Value Adjustment Board. Currently I
am the Vice Chair of the Solid Waste
Authority and board member of the
Cultural Council, Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Water
Resources Task Force. I find these
meetings to be worthwhile and fascinating. Along with my participation
in Florida Association of Counties
and National Association of Counties, I am humbled to serve on these
boards not only as your District Commissioner but as a representative of
all PBC residents to improve your
quality of life.
I am proud to report that my
second Holiday Open House & Food
Drive (click for photos) was a huge
success. Almost 100 pounds of food
and $550 in Publix gift cards were
split between the benefit Caridad
Center and Jewish Family Services
Jacobson Family Food Pantry. It is
wonderful to see the community
come together to help those residing
within its limits. I thank everyone
who took the time to attend and
contribute, particularly the PBC
Firefighters, who donated the bulk
of the gift cards. I look forward to
growing this event for the remainder of my time in office serving the
residents of District 5.
As promised, I raised the complicated and controversial issue of panhandling to my fellow Commissioners. I have asked the County Attorney to draft an ordinance prohibiting
anyone and everyone from collecting
money in the medians. This effort is
to address the growing public safety
concern we have, particularly in West
Boca. My recent efforts should not
be seen as an attack on the homeless
or anyone in need. I sincerely hope
that this action may help our homeless population perhaps even driving
them to the many resources that are
available to help them county-wide.
PBC has a Homeless Services
Program within the Human Services
Division of our Department of Community Services. Their purpose is
to serve individuals who are homeless through a continuum of care,
emergency shelter, intake and assessment, transitional housing and
support services, with the goal of
gaining or regaining economic selfsufficiency. One of the most effective
means used to get our programs and
services to those that need them
are conducted by a group known as
the Homeless Outreach Team also
known as HOT. Human Services
has three teams whose members
go to places throughout the county
where homeless people are known
to congregate. The friendly, nonthreatening discussions build trust
and rapport, enabling members to
complete comprehensive intake and
assessment. Then, if the subjects are
willing, arrangements are made with
the Homeless Assessment Center or
for medical treatment, crisis stabilization or emergency shelter.
As always, I invite your comments
on any issue of interest to you. As
your Commissioner I am here to
help you. You may write me at 301 N.
Olive Ave., West Palm Beach, 33401
or at [email protected] You can
call me or my staff at 276-1310 or toll
free at 877-930-2205. Please visit me

Property Matters
Anne M. Gannon
Palm Beach County Constitutional Tax Collector
Dear Friend,
The weather is magnificent and love is in the air here in Palm Beach
County!
If you visit an office, you may notice an employee taking photos of new
drivers. That’s how we help them celebrate getting their first license. Photos are posted to our Twitter page @TAXPBC. For Valentine’s Day, we take
photos of newlyweds who come to an office for driver license or state ID card
name changes. I invite you to join in on the fun!
Property Tax Payments
February is your last chance to receive a discount on 2014 property taxes.
Payments received in our office by Monday, March 2nd receive a 1% discount.
Payments received after March 31st are delinquent. Delinquent taxes include
a late fee and interest. Our online payment center is always open at www.
pbctax.com.
Do you want quarterly payments for 2015 property taxes instead of one
lump sum? Then our Installment Payment Plan is your chance to catch a
break. It’s easy. Just complete a brief online application at www.pbctax.com
by April 30th. If you are already enrolled, you do not need to reapply.
Homestead Exemption
Speaking of 2015 property taxes, there’s another deadline you need to
know about if you recently purchased a home. If you want a Homestead
Exemption, you must submit the Homestead Exemption Application to the
Palm Beach County Property Appraiser by 5:00 p.m. on March 1st. You can
e-file directly on the Property Appraiser’s website at http://www.co.palmbeach.fl.us/papa/FileExemption.htm or download and mail an application.
In the Driver’s Seat
Issuing driver licenses is one of our most popular services. We recently
updated our free mobile app, “In the Driver’s Seat.” Features include:
Quick access to Florida’s driving laws and recent changes
Easy online driver license appointments
Tools for first time drivers, including updated study materials, the official
practice test, and driving logs
Calendar of important dates and deadlines
Whether you’re preparing for your first license or you’ve been driving
for decades, In the Driver’s Seat is a helpful tool. It’s available for Apple
and Android smart devices and can be downloaded in the Apple App Store,
Google Play, and Amazon.
Are You Renting?
Whether it’s an apartment, a single family home, or even a room in your
home, property owners renting or leasing a unit for six months or less must
pay Tourist Development Tax. The Palm Beach County Commission has
increased this tax rate to 6% beginning this month. Revenue is used to promote tourism, convention centers, and sporting facilities and fund cultural
arts and beach restoration.
Knowingly evading taxes is a felony in Florida. If you have been renting
and were not aware of this responsibility, contact us as at (561) 355-3547
or [email protected] We will work with you to bring your property into
compliance.
Want to Learn More?
Did you know that our office is not funded through property tax dollars?
Or that we distribute unexpended revenue from collected fees to local taxing
authorities like public schools and cities?
If you want to learn more about the services we provide… our community
outreach program is a great resource! We can provide a speaker for your
civic organization, homeowner’s association, or professional organization.

Anne M. Gannon
Constitutional Tax Collector
Dear Friends,
The federal tax credits established by the Affordable Care Act
to help Americans buy health
insurance have proven enormously successful in Florida, where
consumers are using the online
Marketplace at healthcare.gov to
shop for coverage. Indeed, more
than 90 percent of the Floridians
who bought a Marketplace plan
for 2014 received some form of financial help made available by the
law. Yet few Americans are aware
that a case currently pending
before the Supreme Court, King
v. Burwell, could eliminate this
financial assistance for consumers
in the 36 states - including Florida
- that opted to use a federally-run
marketplace on healthcare.gov instead of create their own system.
The Affordable Care Act’s tax
credits help middle-income Americans earning up to $95,400 for a
family of four afford coverage, but,
with a negative ruling in King v.
Burwell, these tax credits would
be unavailable to consumers in
states like Florida. According to
the Kaiser Family Foundation, a
Supreme Court decision eliminating assistance for consumers in
these 36 states could jeopardize
up to $65 billion in combined tax
relief for more than 13 million
Americans across the country.
The loss of financial assistance
to help keep health premiums low
would be especially devastating
in Florida. A recent report from
the House Energy and Commerce
Committee revealed that by 2016,
more than 2.5 million Floridians
could lose a staggering $12.2 billion in financial assistance toward
their health insurance should the
Supreme Court rule against the
Administration in King v. Burwell.
In Florida’s 21st district alone,
nearly 116,000 consumers could
lose the tax credits that put affordable coverage within their
research.
The tax credits established
to help Americans everywhere
find affordable health coverage
are a cornerstone of the 2010
health care reform law. Should
the Supreme Court issue another
partisan, 5-4 ruling against the
Affordable Care Act, millions of
families across the country may
find health insurance once again
out of reach.
As we await the Supreme
Court’s decision in King v. Burwell, please know that I will continue to support solutions that
improve, rather than weaken, how
the Affordable Care Act works for
the people of Florida. Kind regards, Ted Deutch

The Good In People
By Gregory Fusillo
Now that the holidays are over and
we are getting down to the business
of retirement and enjoying our golden
years, there are many people who
continue to work for us.
Have eye issues, can’t hear as
well as you used to, want someone
to talk to, want to go to the Miami
Seaquarium, need a walker, need a
ride to the doctor, want to share a
joke or two? This only scratches the
surface of what is available to our
residents, and is all accomplished by
our residents.
These residents are your volunteers…..the people who do not get
paid and help to make Century Village
a “great place to live”.
Many functions are taken for
granted as we go about our daily
routines and we do not realize how
much work and effort goes into making sure that our residents are kept
happy and enjoy their retirement. I
do not think that there is any other
retirement community that has so
many clubs, classes and activities
offered to its residents than you will
find in Century Village. One only has
to go to the front Information Desk
and pick up a Club List with 52 clubs
listed for your choosing.
What is any club made up of? Usually it is a group of people who for
some reason are not satisfied with sitting at home and complaining about
everything under the sun. People like
my dearly departed friend Jerry Ortzman, who asked my wife Debbie and I
almost six years ago to help organize
a club called the 60’s Generation.
Since then, with his wife Susan at
the helm, the club has grown to over
350 members and is geared to seeing
that people enjoy themselves.
One would only have to guess that
most of these people are taken for
granted, such as the volunteers who
run bingo night on Wednesdays, or
the volunteers who help people in
We Care.
Think you can sing or act? Most
people think they can, including
yours truly. Well, come and join the
Repertory Club and perform on
stage. Whether you are playing tennis, fishing, golfing, eating, walking,
reading or just plain old talking, there
is something or more importantly
someone out there in Century Village
to help you.
It would be blasphemy if I did not
mention the work that your community leaders perform to help run this
small city. Those are the directors,
delegates, COP and COBRUA officers
that good, bad or indifferent to what
we think, step up to the plate for us.
Now if we could only get our cable
and WiFi service working properly we
would have so much less to talk about
and more time to enjoy ourselves.
On behalf of all the residents
of CVW, I want to give a big shout
out to all those who volunteer…..
THANKS!!!
(If you know of someone that you
would like to be acknowledge as a
Good Person, please call me at 561400-2573)

bold, italics & caps are kept in.
Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
I was shocked to read Stanley Siegel’s latest “Community Affairs” column
in the January Cobrua Reporter. In it he asks “citizens” to write to “Vice
Mayor Mary Lou Berger” requesting road repairs, widening and better
traffic flow. As a regular user of District 5’s roads I cannot understand what he is
complaining about. I find the condition of the roads to be in good to excellent
shape with no potholes and excellent lane markings and signaling. As for traffic this season, it is busy, what with the snowbirds, holiday visits,
the recovering South Florida economy and falling gas prices, none of which
is the making of our County Commissioner. Regarding heavy traffic on I-95:
this is an interstate highway that is controlled by the Federal Government,
not County Commissioner Berger. Considering how instrumental Commissioner Berger›s office was in getting the turn lane restored at our Southgate
entrance in 2013 and now helping to increase the green time at Northgate,
I feel that Community Affairs Chairman Siegel owes her an apology. After
all, it›s not like Century Village Boca Raton has been neglected by Commissioner Mary Lou Berger, who deserves the full support of villagers when she
runs for her second and final term (under term limits) in 2016.

Fire Rescue has been contacted to supply us with additional Yellow Dot
pamphlets. I will also be in touch with the West Boca Community Council
who is also a sponsor of the program.
Some of the happenings in the community are:
-Thomas Farms wants to relocate their packing facility on 441 and Clint
Moore. They are working on a plan for limited housing and upscale restaurants and stores. This is in the preliminary stages.
-There will be a relocation of the entrance and exit areas on 441 where
Sports Authority is located. A traffic light will be installed. This will allow
for a smoother flow of traffic and less congestion in attempting to get to the
Home Depot/Publix shopping center.
-There will be an additional fourth entrance in the Target mall to relieve
the congestion of entering that area. Unfortunately, county DOT regulations
do not allow for another traffic light.
-The area that Denny’s vacated will be replaced with a Benihana.
As these and other issues progress, we will keep you informed.

From A RabbiRabbi
’s D
esk
Dr. Chaim Shapiro
Rabbi Emeritus - Congregation Torah Ohr
My wife Sheila and I recently
had a special event in our family.
We attended a beautiful program of
two grandsons becoming ordained
as rabbis! We were thrilled to be
able to partake in this special occasion.
I was pleased to see a man who I
perceive to be an obnoxious person
receive some well-deserved treatment. Reverend Al Sharpton was
told to leave the premises of a family that was mourning the loss of
their son. Sharpton, who has often
visited with President Obama at
the White House, was told to leave
the home of that family because
they felt he was only trying to
OBEY THE

garner some publicity for himself.
There was another terrible
occurrence that took place in a
synagogue in Israel. The headlines
there related how Palestinian terrorists came to the synagogue and
murdered some well-known rabbis.
One of those rabbis was the grandson of one of the three rabbis who
had ordained me. When the Israeli
police located these terrorists and
killed them, the Arab press called
these murderer’s noble victims
who would go up to Palestinian
heaven.
A final thought for this time…
Israel is preparing to have an election for the next Israeli government leaders. According to most
predictions, Prime Minister Netanyahu will win the election and
be able to form a new government
more acceptable to his agenda.
My wife Sheila joins me in extending our best wishes to our Century Village friends and neighbors,

YOUR DENTAL HEALTH
COBRUA REPORTER Page 9
Dr. Alan Wishneff, The Experience,
Caring and Quality Behind Your Smile
“Dental procedures may not vary
much, but patients do – it’s the
personal attention that makes
all the difference . . .”
Dr. Alan Wishneff
No one likes to be treated like just
another cog in a wheel. In an age of
assembly lines, standardization of
products, and ‘high tech’ mentality,
most of us have just about had it
being treated like we’re in a factory. Particularly when it comes
to dental care.
“Everyone’s an individual, and
deserves to be treated like one,”
says longtime favorite Boca Raton
dentist, Dr. Alan Wishneff, whose
offices are on the second floor of
the Plaza at Boca Hamptons. “Although many dental procedures
appear alike, their individualized
attention can make all the difference between a satisfied patient
and an unsatisfied one.” He notes
that from the outset, a key element
in patient satisfaction is listening
carefully to the patient. “The way
a patient chooses to explain his or
her needs is as important as the
substance of their explanation.” he
notes. “We often deal with patients
who express varying degrees of
anxiety or fear, and that colors their
expectations. I instruct my staff to
be sensitive to this and try to allay
the anxiety. It may mean spending
extra time with the patient in order
to listen and educate.”
Individualized patient care
starts outside the office
Dr. Wishneff’s staff recognizes that
patient care often takes place outside the office. “When a patient calls
with a toothache or other problem,
we know they want to be treated
right away, not two weeks from
now,” observes Ilene Leventhal,
office manager. “We’re dealing
with people who need attention
and can’t afford to wait.”
Preventive or routine
care needs individualized attention as well
But the patient-centered philosophy also extends to patients who
are not in pain.
Our dental hygienist spends all
her professional time cleaning
teeth and teaching patients how
to avoid dental crises. But each
dental cleaning (called a ‘prophy’
– short for ‘prophylaxis’) is as different as the individual patient
she treats. “Some mouths are more
sensitive than others to prophies,
so we have to adapt procedures to
accommodate individual patient
needs,” she points out. Preventive
care mandates that patients be
well-informed about periodontal
(gum) disease so as to avoid costly,
time-consuming and sometimes
uncomfortable conditions from
occurring. According to Ingrid, our
hygienist, “Each person’s life-style
differs also, and that may have
different implications for their
dental hygiene.” Eating habits,
diets, brushing, flossing regimes,
whether the patient wears dentures, takes certain medications,
all affect things like mouth odor,
tooth color, puffiness or bleeding
of gums.
Accommodating
patient needs
Even the follow-up scheduling of
patients for recall appointments
should take into consideration
their individual needs. Sometimes patients need to return
every 3 months, sometimes every
6 months, sometimes only once a
year. The individualized attention
given patients at Dr. Wishneff’s
assures a dental health program
tailored just for them.
A tradition of experienced, dedicated and up-to-date care.
“I’ve always been a ‘people person,’ the kind who finds other people interesting and derives enjoyment from working with and helping others.
When I started practicing dentistry in 1980, I found that I really liked this
part of being a dentist. Today, more than 25 years later, this is still what
motivates me to come to work each day and give my best. I get a charge
out of being with people and meeting them, learning about them, interacting with them and playing a role in their oral health and ability to smile
proudly. And it’s a natural part of this process to want to provide not just
dentistry but excellent care, from offering quality clinical services to being personally dedicated. The reward for me is providing great results to
a real person. My satisfaction only comes when you’re satisfied, and for
that I strive to keep my skills sharp and my capabilities current with the
latest and most effective methods.”
DENTURE LAB ON PREMISES
Most repairs done while you wait
It is not uncommon for denture wearers to experience discomfort
from damaged or broken dentures. Dr. Wishneff’s office strives
to offer swift turnaround service for such walk-in patients,
whose repairs can usually be completed same day or while
you wait.
Dr. Wishneff’s office is
conveniently located on the 2nd
floor of the Plaza at the Boca
Hamptons

HEART HEALTHY EXERCISE TIPS
BY CINDY GOLDBERG
ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
Happy Valentine’s Day to all and
what better time to talk about your
heart! Your heart works hard, keeping a constant beat every minute of
your life, so keeping it healthy with
exercise is important. Although everyone’s exercise needs differ, there
are a few tips about heart healthy
workouts that apply across the
board. There are so many benefits
to physical activity regardless of
your age or current fitness level, but
always check with your physician if
you have any cardiovascular or other
conditions, before beginning a fitness
routine.
To ensure good heart health, the
American Heart Association recommends thirty minutes of moderate
to vigorous activity, 5 days a week.
The exercise doesn’t have to be
intense or leave you panting for
breath. Some of the many options
include walking, dancing, biking
and swimming. You can participate
in any of the varied classes we offer
here in the clubhouse, or try using
our cardiovascular equipment in the
fitness center. We have treadmills, el-
lipticals, recumbent bicycles, rowers
and the very popular Nustep seated
elliptical.
Don’t overdo it when you first get
going, you can increase your efforts
in small increments. Begin with
5 minutes and work up to 30 over
time. Try using stairs rather than
elevators and escalators and get in
the habit of parking your car further
from the store. You’ll probably have
fewer dings in the car doors as well!
Use this simple technique to assess the intensity of your workouts.
During moderate aerobic exercise,
you should breathe deeper and perhaps break a sweat, but still be able
to talk without gasping for air.
Exercise can also improve your
mental health by elevating your
mood and encouraging healthier
eating habits. Aerobic exercise can
also help relieve some symptoms of
depression and anxiety.
On that note I will leave you with
my favorite fitness joke: I have just
been to the gym and there is a great
new machine there. I used it for one
hour and then I started to feel sick, but
it’s great! It’s got Kit Kats, M&Ms,
Three Musketeers and Snickers!

Caregivers ALERT
You are not alone.
by Barry Rock, Bereaved Caregiver
Alzheimer’s/Dementia
Caregiver’s Help is Available at the Clubhouse
Providing full-time care
for a loved one with Alzheimer’s
disease or other dementia related
issues is a 24/7 thankless job. You
can quickly become overwhelmed
even when you have an aide available to assist. Sometimes more
is needed. That’s where we enter
the picture. The Century Village
Caregiver’s Group is available to
assist you. We meet on the first and
third Wednesday of the month from
1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Room D
in the Clubhouse. If you need help
between meetings feel free to contact the Social Worker who leads
our group, Danielle Cohen, 1(561)
477-1467.
One of the issues that can
arise is your loved one may become
disoriented or confused and not recognize other people or their location
or surroundings and wander off.
You could be shopping and turn to
pick up a product. When you turn
back around your loved one is gone.
Did they go to the bathroom? Did
they leave the store or are they just
in another isle? Another situation
could arise when you are both sitting in the clubhouse lobby and you
go to the bathroom. When you return your loved one is gone. Sounds
absurd, but Alzheimer’s experts
estimate that between 60-70% of
people with Alzheimer’s will wander off at least once during their illness. It can happen at any point and
become more frequent. The bottom
line is how a family caregiver can
keep their loved ones safe at home
and deal with wandering. Here are
a few tips to help put your mind at
ease.
Timely Tips for Handling Wanderers
1. Make sure your loved one
wears a medical ID. If your loved
one does wander, a bracelet, necklace or other form of ID can help
others get them home safely. At a
minimum the ID should include
 Services provided to over 100,000 patients in
the South Florida region since 2007
 Medicare and most major insurances accepted
 Discounted Self Pay pricing available
 Serving Palm Beach, Broward, Martin and St.
Lucie counties
 Contact Apex or your healthcare provider to
learn more about our services and to see if your
home visit qualifies as “Medically Necessary”
OUR WAITING ROOM IS YOUR LIVING ROOM
Research has shown that 70 to 80 percent of medical
decisions are based on laboratory results.
Apex Laboratory’s Home Visit Services allows patients
to have their health monitored without leaving their
home.
Crucial lab tests are no longer delayed due to the
burdens of traveling or finding transportation to and
from the lab or physician’s office for a simple blood
draw.

2. Make your home safe. Safety

loved one safe and secure.
3. Notify your neighbors. Be sure
to tell your neighbors about your
loved one’s Alzheimer’s and/or dementia. Ask them to contact you if
they see your loved one alone and
wandering.
4. Hire an in-home care professional. In-home care providers can
help supervise and care for your
loved one and provide you with
a much needed break in order to
recharge. Wandering often occurs
COBRUA REPORTER Page 13
when routines are disrupted by
memory loss. Boredom and inactivity may also lead to instances
of wandering. Whether it is a full
or part-time aide they can be very
helpful for both your loved one and
you. Yes, YOU! The best way to take
care of your loved one includes taking care of yourself. If you had an
accident or became seriously ill and
required hospitalization or therapy
your loved one could not get the
care and attention they needed. The
Century Village Caregiver’s Group
wants to be of service to you and
your loved one. We are there to be of
help. Drop by the Clubhouse at any

Fishing Lines
I can’t say too many negative
things about the fishing in CVW
lake system over the last couple
of months.
Each time I have ventured out
to the shoreline, I have felt the tug
of fish. However there has been a
complaint or two from residents
that they are not catching any
fish. Their next question is to ask
if the lakes are being stocked. To
this I say “yes,” but the effects of
stocking a lake system does not
necessarily mean that you will
catch more fish immediately.
I can remember living in Pennsylvania, the fisherman would
try to find out where the lakes
were being stocked because when
you introduce a large number of
smaller fish, the larger fish will
converge to eat, therefore that
would be a good spot to fish.
I cannot say for sure where the
stocking will take place or for that
matter when it will be performed.

fish stocking will be completed in
the spring.
With rod in hand I ventured
over to the dock with my botherin-law Norman to see if indeed
there was a fish problem or
perhaps a fishing technique
problem.
If a man/women tells you they
know how to fish that is one thing;
however, if a man/women tells you
they know how to catch a fish,
listen to them.
The usual suspects were on
the dock fishing….Tom, Sharon,
Cora, Felix and Allen (The dock is
scheduled to be expanded and this
writer hopes sooner than later).
Together, they caught five fish
on that day and I believe it was an
effort that cost them just under
a pound of hot dogs. Their catch
included largemouth bass, catfish
and a rather large tilapia.
For those of you who have not
mastered the art of fishing for
largemouth bass, try a one-inch
piece of hot dog on your hook with
a small 1/8 ounce sinker, cast and
let it sit on bottom. Check your
bait every ten or fifteen minutes.
Let me know how this lazy way of
fishing for bass/catfish turns out.
Remember that a catch and
release policy will ensure that
recreational fishing in our lake
system will be enjoyed for generations to come.
All our kids have gone home
and you can keep those memories
tucked in the back of your brain
or you can pass them on to your
children as I will when I send this
article to my Grandson, Anthony
B., hauling them in two at a time

All About Stamps
By Sig Migden
The unsinkable ship that became one of the greatest disasters
in maritime history has left a treasure of postal material. Several
seemingly insignificant postal artifacts were found in the basement
of a Masonic Temple in Baltimore,
Maryland, 86 years later.
While cleaning the basement
and organizing files, some personal
effects of Oscar Scott Woody were
found. Mr. Woody was a U.S. Postal
clerk who served aboard the Titanic. He was a railway mail clerk for
fifteen years when he received the
following letter dated April 1, 1912:
“You are hereby instructed to
proceed from New York as a clerk
in the sea post office on the SS
Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, sailing April 2nd; and upon arriving in
Plymouth, you will disembark and
travel to Southampton; whence you
will return to New York as a clerk
in the sea post office on the SS Ti-
tanic, sailing from Southampton on
April 10th.”
On Board the Titanic were three
American and two British clerks.
None survived.
The material found consisted of
four facing slips (a facing slip is
a slip of paper tied to a bundle of
mail going to a single destination.)
Also, his letter of appointment, his
mail bag keys, pocket watch, watch
chain and fob. All these items were
to be auctioned off in Baltimore by
Matthew Bennett Co., which gave
the following estimated value to
the items:
1) Four facing slips valued between $2,500 and $5,000 each.
2) Letter from the Post Office
Department - $10-$15,000.
3) Mailbag keys - $2-$3,000 each.
All About Stamps Page 2
4) Watch, chain and fob - $3$4000 each.
5) Canvas bag - $500-$1,000.
Oscar Woody’s body was found by
the cable ship Mackay-Bennett on
April 17 and given the number 167.
He was buried at sea. His heirs donated the canvas bag and contents
to the Masonic Lodge (no date given) many years ago because he had
been an active Mason. According to
the Masonic Lodge spokesman, the
proceeds of the artifacts would be
used for philanthropic purposes.
The auction was held on Nov. 15,
1998 at the New Seasons Hotel in
NY City. Prior to the auction a value
was placed on each item as noted
above, with numbers for each item.
The results were unexpected.
1) Four facing slips were sold for
a staggering sum of $68,000 (for
four pieces of paper).
2) Letter was sold for $35,750.
3) Mailbag keys sold for $35,750.
4) Watch, chain and fob sold for
$35,750.
5) Canvas mailbag sold for
$38,500.
The total selling price was
$194,500, plus a 10% buyer’s
premium, bringing the total to
$213,950, against an estimate of
$23,500 to $35,500. The buyer of
most of the items lent them for a
traveling exhibit to be shown first
in Australia in 1999, then on to
England.
The philatelic and collectible
world was later stunned to learn
that a postcard from the Titanic
surfaced at an auction house. The
question on everybody’s mind was
how this postcard survived and
how did the auction house get it?
Postmark on the card was dated
April 10, 1912. No mention was
made as to the value of the card
and when it would be auctioned.
There has been speculation that
the card was a fraud and postmark
was placed on it. Only time would
tell its value when it finally went
on the block.

Are you struggling with the loss
of a loved one? Are you trying to
cope with caring for a person with
Alzheimer’s or other illness? Do
you need someone to talk to? Well
there is help out there for you. It
is not healthy to keep your feelings
bottled up. Support Groups provide
an opportunity for you to share your
feelings, concerns, and ideas with
others who are struggling with the
same issues as you are.
In a support group, members provide each other with various types of
help. The help may take the form of
providing and evaluating relevant
information, relating personal experiences, listening to and accepting
others’ experiences, providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks. A support
group may also work to inform the
public or engage in advocacy.
Support groups help you realize
that you are not alone in struggling
with an issue or loss. If you have
successfully coped with a challenge
in your life, support groups provide
you with an opportunity to share
your story with others so that they
might learn from you.
There are several support groups
that meet in Century Village. These
include: Alzheimer’s Support Group,
meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday
of the month at 1PM. The Faulk Center for Counseling 483-5300 sponsors
Sharing and Caring support group
every Thursday at 2PM in Room E.

EMERGENCY
POOL PHONES
Anita J. Pearce, Vice-President
Cen-West Management
We have recently installed
red, 911 emergency phones
at each pool, right next to the
black phones. Please note the
following:
Black Phones: Use the
black phone to speak with a
security guard related to a nonemergency situation. Use of this
phone routes your call directly
to a security guard.
Red Phones: Use the
red phone for emergency situations only. Use of this phone
routes your call directly to the
Palm Beach 911 Emergency Call
Center, and connects you with a
911 Operator. There is a large,
red sign over each red phone
which provides the address location of that pool. Please refer to
this sign when asked by the 911
Operator for the address you are
calling from.
All pool phones are checked
by a security officer once a week,
and the entire 911 system is
automatically checked by the
DSL Express Network Operations Center every 60 seconds
to ensure they are operational.
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO
CHECK THE RED PHONES
YOURSELF since that will
trigger a response from the
closest Palm Beach County 911
emergency team.

Reflections
of
Life
By Rabbi Benjamin S. Yasgur
Congregation Torah Ohr
I sat in my Florida Room one
sunny, early afternoon watching a
large gathering of ducks. I was accustomed to seeing three to five ducks
visit my section of the lake. But this
time there was a convention; almost
thirty-five ducks chose to rally behind
my condo. As I watched, I realized
this was a prized location. Most of the
ducks were content, or maybe just resolved, to share the calm water of the
lake. Three ducks, however, perched
themselves on the small floating pipe
which marks the beginning of the line
feeding water to the sprinkler system.
They basked in the sun, nodded to
each other and made the limited space
work for them with no quarrels.
I glanced to my left, viewing the
walking path. Two individuals, traveling in opposite directions were enjoying a stroll. As far as I could observe,
they passed each other without any
form of communication. I thought
of a walk I took with my oldest child
when she was in kindergarten. It was
a Shabbat morning and my daughter,
a tender five years old, was accompanying me to synagogue. It was a
beautiful spring morning; the sun
was shining, the temperature delightful. As we walked, we approached
a man, hose in hand, watering his
modest sized, front lawn. I said “Good
morning.” He answered similarly. As
we continued to walk my daughter
asked “Abba (Hebrew for father), do
you know that man?” I told her I did
not. “In school”, she continued, “they
told us never to speak to a stranger”.
Wow! That was a challenge to resolve
with my young child. Especially in
light of a Jewish teaching recorded in
Ethics of the Fathers (4:20) “Initiate a
greeting to every person”. Rabbi Matya instructed not only is it proper to
exchange greetings, but try to be the
one who opens with greetings.
I shared this teaching with a teenage nephew during a trip to Israel.
We had the privilege to welcome the
Sabbath through prayer at the holy
Western Wall, the Kotel, in Jerusalem.
During our two mile walk back to
our residence, we encountered several other walkers; in aggregate, they
formed a very divergent group of people. With each encounter, I extended
the greeting of Shabbat Shalom. My
nephew was amazed that strangers
responded to me. Then he tried it too.
He turned to me with excitement and
a big smile. One would think he was
the winner of prized concert tickets
Sid’s Slant
By Sidney Shapiro
Many years ago President Theodore Roosevelt stated “walk softly
but carry a big stick.” The clock is
ticking as Iran rushes to complete a
nuclear bomb with its first target,
which is simply to slaughter and
destroy Israel.
For years Iran has stalled while
keeping major nations from closing down its nuclear program. The
time is coming when it will be too
late and Iran will have a nuclear
bomb and use it. They will complete
the slaughter that Hitler started. At this point the so-called civilized
world will do nothing but condemn
Iran and weep for all the dead Israelis. Benjamin Netanyahu realizes all
this and knows he can’t wait much
longer. The problem is that Israel
can’t do it alone. They need the combined military might of the United
States, Britain, France and others
to jointly destroy Iran. Israel alone
can do massive damage to Iran’s
military and civilian structure but
it might not do enough. Iran has a
massive and modern military with a
potent army, air force, ground to air
defenses and a host of other available
defenses. Israel will suffer massive
losses and destruction if it goes on
the attack alone. But, under these
circumstances they could have no
choice. As much as Israel will suffer
they can also make Iran pay heavily
for its misadventure, ending up with
substantial destruction.
If Israel survives, it will send a
message to its enemies: don’t mess
with us because we are capable and
can prevail over any threat. Israel has its battle cry: “Never again,
Never again”.
A VALENTINE KISS
For the loved ones in this world of
ours,
I send joy to share through all their
powers,
To give of themselves to all creation,
Mankind and creatures in every nation.
Give to your spouse, your child, your
pet.
Remember the poor, and the homeless yet.
To my own dear ones, I offer this…
My love and a sweet Valentine kiss.

or the like. The walk home became a
very uplifting experience for us both.
We do live in a world which is, at
times, not as welcoming or as comforting as we would prefer. Let’s continue
to build the strength of our small
world here in Century Village with the
generous use of Hello, Good Morning
and other greetings.
I look forward to greeting you on
the path!
CAR-WISE
• Always lock the doors and take
the keys when you leave the car,
even if you’ll be gone for “just a
minute.” As many as one in five
stolen cars has the keys in its
ignition.
• Keep your car in good running
order and keep the gas tank at
least half full.
• Make sure someone knows where
you’re going and when you plan
to be back.
• Approach the car with your door
key already in hand. If anyone
nearby makes you nervous, leave
and get help.
• Lock up the doors as you buckle
your safety belt. Keep windows
rolled up.
• Is someone following you? If
you think so, head for the nearest busy, brightly lighted area.
Write down the license number
and make and model of the car.
Call 911 (or your local emergency
number) on your cell phone if
you have one, or ask convenience
store or gas station personnel to
help you.
• Car disabled? Pull over to the side
of the road, put on your flashers,
and put out flares or reflective
markers if you have them. Tie a
light-colored cloth to your antenna or door handle. Stay with the
car. Use a cell phone if you have
one to call for help. If a stranger
offers to help, ask him or her to
call police to assist you.

matter how long you have been married. The questions are funny, the couples are funny. It’s
an evening of games, small prizes and laughter that you will never forget.

aim at anyone and everyone! Sarge also does spot-on singing
impressions of well-known performers such as Stevie Wonder,
Lionel Richie and Harry Connick, Jr. and his skills at the piano are
equally prodigious. Needless to say, no two of his shows are ever alike.
Cirquesco
Sunday, March 22

Suspenders
You will never guess what I did for
the first time in my life at the age of
92! No, I didn’t jump out of a plane.
No, I didn’t race in the Indianapolis
500-Mile Speedway. No, I didn’t take
out a 22-year-old beauty queen for a
night on the town. P.S. That’s when
I’m 93.
What I did do was buy a pair of suspenders. Why? For the past six months
I noticed my pants were hanging low
and when I took them off at night I saw
that the bottom of the pants legs in the
back were damaged. How could it be?
They were the same pants I’ve worn
on and off for the past twelve years.
Did they wear out from ordinary use?
Did I get shorter? I checked the pencil
markings on the door frame where I
keep a record of my height over the
years. Yes, it was so. I was getting
shorter and never noticed it. In 2001 I
was 5’ 6” tall. In 2008 I was 5’ 5”. Last
week it was 5’ 4”. My height loss of two
inches dropped my pants in the back
enough to scrape the ground.
What to do? Who do I ask? My friend
Al the Barber, who wears suspenders,
wasn’t around. I remembered in the
movies I saw all the farmers wore
suspenders. I called up the Belle Glade
Farmers’ Cooperative and made an
appointment to see Henry Johnson,
Executive Director. On the trip there
I passed a herd of cows, avoided a few
chickens crossing the road, saw three
farmers talking at a fence, all wearing
suspenders. I knew I was in the right
territory. I almost stopped to join in
the conversation, but I didn’t want to
miss my appointment.
Mr. Johnson welcomed me. Yes, he
was wearing suspenders. I told him
my problem. His advice was brief. He
suggested I buy a pair of black suspenders with clip attachments. I told
him I didn’t know there was any other
kind. He showed me his, which were
the button and button-hole style. He
thought those were more stylish, but
as a beginner the clips would be okay
for me.
Did I have to buy them in rural
Belle Glade, I asked, or could I find
them in fancy Boca Raton? He said
I could. I bought a pair at Macy’s
Men’s Shop.
I met Al the Barber at the clubhouse
last night. He was surprised to see me
with my new suspenders. We talked
about the price of pork rinds, what
a bushel of corn was selling for, what
crops he planned on planting on his
patio next season. If you see us at the
clubhouse, come over and say “hello”.
We’ll be glad to discuss important
current farm topics. And we’ll tell you
about the next barn-raising, barbeque
and hoedown. Al is the short handsome guy with the big round belly. I’m
the taller handsome guy with a smaller
round belly. You’ll know us - we’re the
ones wearing black suspenders. We’re
setting a new fashion style in Century
Village. I know it’s catching on. I saw
a few guys with suspenders holding up
their tennis shorts and bathing trunks.
I’ll admit it wasn’t a pretty sight.
What next? Bikinis with suspenders
and no tops? Now, that would make a
pretty sight.

Remembrances
of the
Past
By Lee Chanin
I often reminisce about family
memories, both happy and sad. One
in particular that is appropriate for
this time of year, is a Valentine’s Day
memory. I remember when I was a
teenager, walking with Papa on Pitkin
Avenue, noticing all the beautifully
decorated shop windows offering everything related to remembering
one’s sweetheart on Valentine’s Day.

I turned to Papa and asked him,
“Why don’t you surprise Mama with
a box of candy?” He looked at me
in surprise and answered, “Mama
doesn’t need candy.” My heart sank. Papa had no sentiment in him. I
knew that if he made even the smallest gesture, Mama would have loved
it. She had often expressed to me
that she longed for Papa to show her
some attentiveness. I always felt so
sad for her, but as we got older, we
children made it up to her with gifts
and greeting cards for every occasion.
My late husband Arthur, of blessed
memory, delighted me with gifts and
more gifts for every occasion from the
time we started dating. I remember
he surprised me one Valentine’s Day
with an elaborate mirrored box containing drawers filled with chocolates
and the next day another mirrored
box filled with chocolates. He was
always bringing me surprises and
Mama “qvelled”.
Now, Tom, my wonderful boyfriend of ten years, is very sentimental and has bought me beautiful gifts
of jewelry, fine chocolates and taken
me on exciting trips to distant lands. How lucky can a girl get! TO ALL

Memories that we cherish stay
with us and this poem expresses that
sentiment:
RAINBOWS OF MEMORY
Every memory is a ribbon in my
rainbow,
Another ribbon of color that I get
to know.
The many strands of these vivid
colors I collect,
Come together and they begin to
connect,
They combine to form a story of
my compelling past
Of promising dreams that had
failed to last,
From the times when I was a small
sad child,
Through the years, I’ve had some
terrors wild.
Of times that were a sad
disappointment,
Of many tears that on lost dreams
were spent.
A new color appears in my
memory’s rainbow,
Another ribbon of color that I get
to know.
And so I follow that rainbow as I
continue to live,
To review the memories of hurts I
can now forgive.
To recall the good times and share
them with those
Whom I love and also those whom
I chose.
Now the new colors that appear in
my rainbow
Are many more ribbons on which
I may grow
To flourish in the years of my
ensuing age,
And I’ll start a book of memories
and turn a new page.

Century
Art Club
By Nachama Weisenberg
The Wine and Cheese event held
January 29 th in the Party Room
lived up to its past standards of
excellence and originality. This
year’s theme was Landscapes. A
lot of people made the party the
success that it was.
We pay tribute first to Rochelle
(Shelly) Rubinstein who, for over
30 years, has been the guiding force
behind the Wine and Cheese Party.
She approves and coordinates the
art to be exhibited. We are grateful also to Bernie Hoffman and
Roz Ross-Hoffman for organizing
the refreshments and raffle and
door prizes and to Rita Steinmauer
for setting up the Kosher Table. Our guest speaker Blake Patterson delighted us with samples
of his unique art form. He demonstrated how he creates unique
wooden bowls of varying sizes and
geometric designs out of recycled
wood chips using commonly known
woods (i.e., walnut ) and exotic
wood (i.e.,, zebrawood), referring
to the process as the use of segmented wood.
At the January meeting, members voted for Abstracts to be the
theme for the Wine and Cheese
event for 2016. We are looking
forward to our Annual Art Exhibit that will be held two days in the
party room on February 26th and
27th from 9 a.m-3 p.m. In order to
exhibit their art work all participants will first have to fill out an
application form. These forms will
be available at the registration
desk.in the club house Only four
pieces per person will be allowed,
The art is to be brought on February 25th from 1-3pm. We have been
assured that the art pieces will be
safely locked up.
Reservations are quickly filling
up for the forthcoming Bonnet
House Trip on March 5th. See
Social Whirl for date, time and
contact information.

Tennis Times
By Bob and Judy Cantor
Let us start this issue on a gastronomical note and a report on the
wonderful Welcome Back Brunch
that was held by our tennis club on
Sunday, December 14. The event was
hosted by Rita & Marty Kalter (see
photo) who, working with their committee, provided an excellent array
of goodies from Too Jay’s restaurant
which included bagels , cream cheese
, lox, cake & coffee. Club President
Richard Gell introduced the entertainer for the event, Stanley Preiser,
who (from his keyboard) provided
the audience with a musical history of some of the great songs from
Broadway and Hollywood in times
gone by. His performing technique
involved a good deal of audience
participation by conducting what
amounted to a musical trivia game.
An interesting example was one of
the first songs he played which was
titled Embraceable You. He asked
the audience to name the composer
and lyricist and where the song was
originally introduced. The answer
was that it was written by George
and Ira Gershwin and introduced in
the 1930’s Broadway musical, Girl
Crazy, which starred Ginger Rogers
and introduced a young performer
by the name of Ethel Merman. Moreover, on the opening night of the
show the orchestra was conducted
by George Gershwin himself who
led from the pit such jazz musicians
as Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman,
Glen Miller and Jimmy Dorsey. Oh,
to have been there on such a night !
Now changing subjects, let’s go back
in time a week or so and describe an
innovative new program created by
the Tennis Club to give everyone
in CVW an opportunity to enjoy
the wonderful game of tennis. It’s
BCTC’s presentation of intra- mural tennis. It began on Tuesday,
December 2 and it will run throughout the season ending March 24. Its

Wednesday, Feb. 25th I purpose is to provide those CVW
tennis players who do not already
have a regular game, and even those
who do, a chance to play matches in
a competitive setting and meet fellow
tennis players to sign up for additional off program tennis matches. After
only one week of the announcement
more than 38 players had signed up
and a great time is being had by all
who come. Let’s give a shout out of
appreciation for the very hard work
done by BCTC club members Robert
Reach and Moe Ackerman who run
the program. It is not an easy task to
prepare and coordinate an event like
this and all tennis players in CVW
thank them. (see photo)

By Arlene Coleman
The recent event with Cuba and
the U.S. was an interesting and
monumental change of events which
can change history in the future for
many. What have we learned from
this? Well in any negotiation, the
players are the main factors. Their
skills behind the doors lay the
groundwork for future events which
can affect many.
As some of you who are familiar
with the very popular TV show Shark
Tank know, nothing is more important than the negotiations made between the billionaire sharks and the
person looking to make a deal with
them. Skills are needed to make the
best deal possible so that both the
shark and the contestant are getting
what they want and need to benefit
their future investment.
All of these scenarios are important to the outcome of deals and the
importance of negotiations but nothing (yes, I said nothing) compares to
the backdoor deals made between
Milton Bienstock, Court 1, across
from Mansfield and Arlene Coleman,
Court 2, across from Mansfield. Both
are fiercely competitive and try to get
the best deal for their players on Court
1 and Court 2. Where do these highly,
secretive meetings take place you
ask? Dunkin Donuts has been the
spot where they have been discovered
trading and compromising behind
closed doors (not really closed doors,
as they are eating outside) while dining on a donut (cinnamon for Arlene
and roll for Milton) and coffee. Who
eats a roll at Dunkin Donuts?
We are ever mindful of the players
and their ultimate goal of trying to
be fair to accommodate their regulars. It is important for others at
Century Village to know that Milton
and Arlene do not organize games
for people who can›t find them, but
try to make fun for those who are
regulars in their games. How did we
arrive at who are regulars? Milton
and Arlene›s group play year round
with the same people (3 1/2 years
now) and literally had to tell people
«we just don›t have any more room». We know there is a need for drifters.
We would love to see these people
get in games, but Milton and Arlene
are not in that business. We do hope
that these people are able to find
games. The bottom line is we try our
best to be fair with our regulars and
hope they enjoy the game as much
as we do! By the time Milton and
Arlene are done trading players and
finishing their donuts and coffee we
shake hands and say “We did our best
negotiating so everyone in our groups
can be happy”.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!

CarFit Safety Program Returns to
Century Village in Boca on February 18th
With the goal of keeping seniors
safe on the roads, the CarFit program will return to Century Village
on February 18th. CarFit is a safety
program designed to help seniors
find out how the “fit” of their
personal vehicle affects their
driving. Older adult drivers have
their cars inspected by trained volunteers. Each year, over 30 seniors
benefit from this program. CarFit
is an educational program whose
goals are to help older drivers improve the “fit” of their vehicles for

safety and comfort and link adults
with relevant, local resources that
can help ensure they drive safely
longer.
CarFit uses a trained team of volunteers, including an occupational
therapist, to assist senior drivers
with items such as a clear line of
sight over the steering wheel, adequate space between the front airbag/steering wheel and the driver’s
breastbone, properly adjusted head
restraints, proper positioning on
gas and brake pedals, proper safety
belt use and fit, and safe positioning of mirrors to minimize blind
spots. CarFit will take place in the
parking lot of Congregation Torah
Ohr, north of the bus parking area,
from 8:40am – 1PM.
Volunteers are needed to help
check cars and drivers. To volunteer to help check for safety or to

Jurors provide crucial public service in
Palm Beach County
A juror has the power to transform a
person’s life. Serving as a juror is one of the
most important responsibilities that any
citizen can make to serve their community,
the justice system and their country. Jury
duty should be approached with honor and
served with dignity.
The importance of jury duty has come
to the forefront recently due to some highprofile court cases in Palm Beach County
and throughout Florida. Those cases get
an extraordinary amount of attention, but
are relatively rare. Most jurors’ experience
with jury duty will entail a single day at
the courthouse.
The Clerk & Comptroller’s office manages Palm Beach County’s jury system,
summonsing more than 155,000 potential
jurors each year who are randomly selected
from the state driver license database.
Understanding that jury duty may
impact your daily routine, many conveniences are offered to make serving easier.
Providing complimentary parking, movies
in the juror waiting area, free Wi-Fi in the
courthouse and computer access in the

A Vacant Row by Paul Thorner
A long vacant row nine empty
seats
when I stand to touch the Torah
as it passes by on Saturday mornings
in the synagogue I see that the row
on the opposite side of the aisle is
vacant, the seats are empty
the prayer books in the rack are
waiting to be opened
yes the row is vacant now but I
remember when the seats were filled
with life
I can see small Cedric from London, who drove onto Juno Beach in a
British tank on D-Day, June 6, 1944
- who became an artist
I can see Esther, who continued
her conversations with her friends
through the rabbi›s plea of «May I
have your attention, please.» - became a poet
Edna, a high school teacher mother of three
Miriam, in her colorful widebrimmed hats, who as an eight-yearold child saw a picture of women
dressed in their Easter Sunday finery
and found a fashion style - and became a designer
Sylvia and Morris, holocaust survivors, who were always seen holding
hands - fine dancers
Fred, who ran a printing plant - a
good tennis player
David, the accountant - a writer
Sidney, who survived three concentration camps, came to America
at age 17, became a university physics professor - chess champ
I remember meeting them in the
past in the clubhouse, on the tennis
courts, in the pools, in the exercise
room, at club meetings, at dances, on
walk paths, at Publix supermarket,
at Town Center Mall, in restaurants
But I can still see them now across
the aisle on Saturday mornings.
I see them reaching out to touch
the Torah as it is carried by and to
shake the rabbi›s hand.
A Vacant Row by Paul Thorner
Page 2 of 2
I see them at the Kiddush after
services standing at their familiar
places talking to their friends everyone telling of the lives and
accomplishments of their children
and grandchildren and even greatgrandchildren
I know they aren›t there, so why
do I see them? Do my eyes fool me?
Do I want to see them and my mind
conjures them up? I don›t know. But
it›s a warm feeling to see these old
friends. I hope I see them again next
Saturday.

Musical Notes
By Max Deutsch
Ben Selvin
Dean of Recorded Music
Born in 1898 of Russian Jewish
parents, Ben Selvin left his mark
on the recorded music industry
in many ways. He recorded over
13,000 different songs on 78rpm
records. He was in the development
of Mazak in the 1930’s (elevator
music) and worked with 3M in developing tape recordings that were
an alternative to vinyl recordings
on LP’s and 45’s. At 15 he played
the violin and in his early 20’s
headed his own orchestras. His biggest hit was Dardanella which sold
millions of copies.
The number of 78rpm records
sold in 1927 was 100 million. In
1932, the number dropped to 6
million and that caused record companies to combine or go out of business. Ben Selvin recorded songs on
up to 125 different record labels. He
would produce discounted records
that were sold by Sears, Kresge, and
Woolworth. The same recording
would appear with different labels.
For example, a recording of My
Sweet Tooth says I Wanna appeared
on a Columbia House Band record
label which says Vocal Female Duet.
The same recording with a different
label says the vocal is the Picken
Sisters. If you bought the record
in Sears on a discount label, it
might be the exact same recording
as the national recognized recording. Some of the orchestra names
he used were Ben Selvin’s Moulin
Rouge Orchestra, Knickerbocker
Orchestra, Broadway Nitelites, and
Novelty Orchestra.
When he was president of Columbia Records, he was overseeing
the production of Doris Day, Frank
Sinatra, and Buddy Clark..
Some of the songs he recorded
include Margie, You’re the Cream
in my Coffee and The Original
Charleston. Before the market
crashed in 1929, Yellen and Ager
wrote Happy Days are Here Again.
That song was used by FDR in his
presidential campaign of 1932. Selvin recorded Happy Days.
Selvin’s recordings from 1917 to
1934 are listed in Brian Rust’s The
American Dance Band Discography
and only took 46 pages. A song he
recorded from the Broadway show
Everybody’s Welcome made it big
twelve years later in the Movie
Casablanca.
Now you know why he is known
as Dean of Recorded Music.

Everyone knows it’s not uncommon to lose money in
the stock market either through bad investment advice,
unforeseen market fluctuations, or for a number of other reasons. However, what most investors don’t know,
and what has often been described as Wall Street’s
‘dirty little secret’ is that often times, an investor’s
losses can be recovered from the broker, investment
advisor and/or the brokerage firm itself if it turns out
the investor’s losses were caused by the negligence or
fraud of those entrusted to safeguard and invest your
hard-earned capital. This may be true even if losses
were caused by an unforeseen decline in the market.
Stock Market Justice, LLC is a company formed and
run exclusively by securities professionals who possess many years of experience in detecting and going after broker malfeasance, often recovering all or a
substantial portion of their clients’ losses from brokers
and/or brokerage firms found guilty of putting their own
financial needs ahead of the needs of their clients to
whom they owe a duty to protect.

Under
the
Garment
By Scott Cunningham
The central character in the Torah portion VaYeshev is Joseph, Jacob’s youngest son. In this portion
Jacob sits in the land of Canaan.
Joseph’s gift of prophetic dreaming
emerges. If Joseph is able to dream
into the future then I too can do
this. This portion like all of the
Torah happens within me and everything is possible with the Torah.
VaYeshev is about the correction of
my soul. How do I do this?
Joseph being sold into slavery
is my own ego making me a slave
because of my own selfish desires
to receive for self-alone. This I don’t
even recognize. I am in itself, in
bondage because of my own egocentric desires. What am I in bondage
to? And what do I do? “Return, Oh
Israel unto Yahweh Elohim” (Hosea
14:2). This is what I need to achieve
to bring myself back to the value of
sharing by striving to become like
the Creator with my giving. Letting
go of my own egocentrically based
desires by sharing with others. As
Joseph does by becoming second in
command of Egypt, I too can take
control over my own physical reality and triumph, thereby freeing
my soul.
VaYeshev means ‘and Jacob sat.’
Jacob dwells in the land of Canaan.
Even though Joseph is the main
character in this portion there is
a main truth to this portion of its
principal. Jacob waits, he’s like a
statue, he does not move. So what
am I waiting for? How do I fix myself though this Torah study potion
as it’s happening to me?
The correction is for my soul. But
aren’t all corrections for my soul?
Spiritualism is metaphysical. All
outwardly corrections of myself ultimately effect the correction of me on
a higher level of consciousness. This
is all that I am trying to achieve
from this higher consciousness. I
can strive to go to even higher levels too. Allowing myself to obtain
many extra metaphysical senses
along my way to make this possible
as I climb up this ladder. The Zohar
says there are over a ninety senses
that humans have an ability to use.
I know I have more than my physical five senses. Using them is what
I want to do.
Correction for my soul ultimately
helps me while I live my reality in
my physical world. Kabbalah teaches me that everything that happens
to me starts at the soul level. My
life begins not in this world but in
an Upper World of spiritual density.
It could be contiguous to me but I
cannot see it. It’s in another dimension. All of this is born into me at
birth into my physical form of what
I think could be my physical reality.
What is my reality? Is this the soul
and the body becoming one?
I essentially I have two realities
it would seem. I have a physical
reality and a spiritual reality, which
are actually homologous so they are
one. My physical reality began in
the spiritual reality. So then does
my physical reality exist? All my
correction is for my soul. My soul
reincarnates many times according
to the Zohar, the commentary for
the Torah. I am striving to get back
to my metaphysical roots. This is
where I came from in the beginning.
Therefore this physical world is
metaphysical too like the Oneness of
the Creator who created all of these
truths. I am part of this endlessness
of infinity’s circle of life.
The ultimate correction that
dwells in VaYeshev is anticipating
love by sharing love. The more I
love the more I get back from the
Creator. I learn to depend on the
Creator for my needs. More love and
goodness will come to me through
others around me into this seeming
physical world I live in. In a dimension of its own.

I cannot think of a better place
to be than South Florida, with its
beautiful weather, lovely beaches
and great golf courses. It sure beats
what is happening, with the weather
up north. The fairways are lush and
the plush greens are just waiting
for us golfers to fulfill our dreams
of birdies and pars. So let’s get
started with some timely golf tips.
Want to lower your scores from
the tee box to the green? If your answer is no read no further, if it’s yes,
then read on and reap the benefits
of the easy ways to better scores. Driving: To drive the ball well, focus
on a slow takeaway and on completing
your backswing before starting your
downswing. Your backswing is completed when your left side is behind
the ball, or close to it. This is crucial
to setting up a good transition from
backswing to downswing. Remember,
you cannot turn back slow enough.
Iron Play: If you tend to hit the ball
high, that can mean trouble on windy
days and we have lots of those. On

** Subsidized by
those days take more clubs and hit
knockdown shots. It’s a great way
to hit the ball more solidly and to
control your ball flight. To hit this
stroke saver shot take one more club
than normal and play the ball back of
center in your stance, make a three
quarter backswing and remember it’s
not a punch shot so finish your swing.
Pitching: Keep your pitch shot as
simple as possible. It’s very important that you make the same swing
every time. Use very little wrist hinge
with the pitch shot. If you need to
alter the height or the distance of the
shot, change to a higher or lower lofted club and play the ball up or back
in your stance. Do not change your
swing to ensure consistent results.
Chipping: Play chip shots out of
the rough as if the ball was in a
bunker. Open the face of the club
and swing out to in. This will help
those of you who struggle with this
shot because you decelerate in fear
of hitting the ball too far. Acceleration is the key to a successful chip.
Set up with your feet aligned open,
swing along your foot line, cutting
across the ball. Swing hard because
the stance and the swing path will
create a high, soft landing shot.
Putting: Keep your mechanics simple
so you can focus on your line and
the speed of your putt. Remember
the left arm is the left side of the
triangle created by the shoulders
and the right arm. Your goal is
to keep that triangle intact as the
putter goes back and then through.
You accomplish this by moving the
triangle with your left arm. This will
help to prevent you from making a
handsy stroke and will keep the putter face square to your target. It’s
very important to remember that the
only thing that moves during your
putting stroke is your shoulders.
Confidence in your game is very important, good play takes care of itself,
so confidence is what you should
focus on.
THOUGHT OF THE MONTH:
They say it takes a minute to find a
special person, an hour to appreciate
them, a day to love them, but then
it takes an entire lifetime to forget
them.

Substance abuse isn’t just a problem for young people.
People in their golden years
similarly turn to abusing alcohol,
prescription pills and other drugs to
cope with loneliness, grief, anxiety,
and/or pain. Their use of drugs is
also tied in with psychiatric disorders or medical conditions such as
dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the number of
older substance abusers is on the
rise, due to the aging of the baby
boomers, a group that was more
likely than previous generations
to have used illicit drugs in their
youth. Studies show that roughly
one out of five senior citizens struggles with substance abuse. Many
of them are abusing prescription
medications, including painkillers and depressants, which can be
especially harmful for older adults
because of how their bodies and
brains handle these substances. As
people get older, it is more difficult
for them to absorb and break down
medications and drugs.
Abuse of prescription medication is even more dangerous
when it is mixed in with using
alcohol. That can cause serious
consequences including accidental
overdose death.
In Palm Beac h Co u nt y a nd
across Florida, there were many
deaths associated with drug overdoses in early- to mid-2000s, during the proliferation of pain clinics,
or “pill mills,” that prescribed
large quantities of pain pills with
little medical justification. Thankfully, my deputies and our law
enforcement, health administration, and state and local legislative
partners helped drive away most of
these clinics and bring to justice
the unscrupulous owners, pharma-
cists and physicians who ran these
clinics and hurt so many people in
our community. Today, the rate of
drug overdoses has declined due to
the legal and enforcement actions
that were taken.
For older adults, substance
abuse is preventable, but many
adults do not get the help they
need because they – as well as their
caregivers, family members, and
friends – overlook warning signs
of drug abuse. Those signs include:
Changes in sleep patterns and/
or appetite.
Increased falling.
Frequently changing physicians
or “doctor shopping” to get multiple prescriptions.
Onsets of irritability or agitation.
Empty liquor bottles in the
garbage. There are many treatment options.
For some, treatment may be as
simple as a few counseling sessions and encouragement from
a physician and family. This is
particularly the case if the drug
habit started later in life, if there’s
family and social support in place,
and if there are no related mental
illnesses. Seniors with more serious addictions may need to go
through detoxification as well as
rehabilitation programs.
Hardly anyone, young or old,
ever admits to an addiction voluntarily. So it’s up to friends, family
members and caregivers to spot
signs of trouble before it becomes
too late. When confronting an older abuser, don’t engage in blame,
be kind but firm, and remember
this important fact: drug addiction
is a disease, not a moral weakness.

Opening Lead: Heart ace
Playing ‘Weak Two Bids,’ a twoclub opener denotes a powerhouse.
If it is a no-trump type hand, then
the bid shows a strong 22 point
hand or more. This is predicated
on the fact than an opening 2NT
shows 20 to a modest 22 points.
However, in a suit type hand, a
two-club opener should not be
based on a fixed number of points.
Instead, consider the number of
winners in the hand, with nine
being a reasonable minimum.
What is often overlooked is that
the hand should have winner(s) in
three suits, not two. The minimum
number of high card points is 17,
but that would rarely be the case.
In today’s hand, we can count 9
½ tricks, so two-clubs is the correct
opening bid. The 2D response is
an artificial waiting bid that indicates nothing about that suit but
which leaves partner the maximum
room to start describing his hand.
When North bid 3D, a bid that is
absolutely forcing, South chose to
raise that suit instead of looking
for 3NT. North raised to game,
and West chose to lead the ace of
hearts which brought the hand to
the moment of truth.
Whom would you bet on in a
strong duplicate bridge game?
Should West cash his spade ace,
underlead a spade, or make a neu-
tral lead in another suit?
Cashing the spade ace would
work only if declarer was very
short in the black suits, perhaps
holding one spade and two clubs or
two spades and one club, in which
case the spade loser(s) would be
pitched on dummy’s clubs. This
is an unlikely situation because it
requires declarer to hold at least
ten red cards.
Underleading the spade ace
might work in the case where East
held the spade queen and South
the spade jack and declarer misguesses the situation.
Finally, a neutral shift at trick
two would leave South in a position to have to break the spade suit
himself, which in this case would
result in his losing two spade tricks
and going down in his contract.
COBRUA REPORTER Page 49
So what happened? West, a nonexpert, laid down the spade ace
which left declarer with only one
spade loser, thereby fulfilling his
contract.
