Curves Donates to
Blessings Food Pantry
During March, Curves of Lighthouse Point donated over 1800
pounds of food to the Blessings Food Pantry during Curves “Feed the
Need” Food Drive. All of the food was donated by the members, who
brought in food when they came in for their workouts and new
members joining in the month of March had the one time service fee
waived with their donation of a bag of groceries.
“While we work to improve the lives of women in the northeast
Broward County area through Curves, we also feel it is important to
reach out to others in our community,” said Gail Bamman, owner of
Curves of Lighthouse Point. “It’s apparent to us that the Blessings
Food Pantry cares about the lives and the health of the people in our
community. We are proud to be able to partner with them to help
the north Broward county area.”
“This year’s theme, “Feed the Need” really represents both what
we want to accomplish with this year’s food drive and what we do
as a business,” said Bamman. “We want to help feed local families and
we also want to “feed the need” of local women for a health and
fitness program that fits their busy lifestyle.”
Total contributions to local food banks from the annual Curves
Food Drive top 75,000,000 pounds of food, according to Curves Vice
President of Marketing Mike Raymond. “Each year we encourage our
clubs and members to donate even more than the year before. Our
annual Food Drive is a great way for members and their communities
to fill a real need by restocking the shelves in local food pantries
across the U.S. and Canada during a time when they are usually low.”
Trinity Christian School’s 4th Annual
Drop Everything and Read Event
On April 4, 2013, the Lighthouse Point Library teamed up again with
Trinity Christian School for its Fourth Annual Drop Everything and Read
event on Wednesday, April 3,2013 at Trinity Christian School.
Lighthouse Point Mayor Fred Schorr, past Lighthouse Point Library
Directory Doreen Gauthier, and Trinity’s Pastor Dennis Redstone were all
guest readers at the event. The theme this year was respect, and more
importantly, respect for your country and all books were about
America.·Established in 2007, Trinity Christian School in Lighthouse
Point is committed to providing quality education to elementary aged
children at an affordable price. Trinity is an innovative Christian school
that motivates and equips students to be life-long learners.

A Real Bonehead
“Keep your eye on the ball” sounds like good advice. Well,
I did just that a few days ago when I was hit squarely between
the eyes with a tennis ball coming at mock speed. My friend
Howard seemed apologetic for the smashing blow, but why
was he smiling the rest of the game?
A few years ago, while attempting to follow through with my swing as I hit the
ball, I struck myself in the head above the right eyebrow with my own racquet,
needing eight stitches to close the wound. I have also broken my wrist playing
tennis, when losing my balance going back for a lob.
Anyone but a real bonehead would continue this hopeless quest to become a
top ten tennis player. And that’s just what my mother lovingly called me when
teaching me to play the piano…a real bonehead.
From my piano bench, I could see my friends having fun playing in the back
yard. But through the tears and the years I studied and voila, I eventually learned
to play.
I don’t know if there’s a moral to this story, but in tomorrow’s game I’ll try to
keep a closer eye on the ball.
2012 — Our Best Year!
My accounting system is very basic, so only at tax time do I really know the
bottom line. Well, in spite of a slightly slow period during last summer, we picked
up nicely the rest of the year.
Since our newly designed Lighthouse Point Magazine was published for the first
time in June of last year, we’ve received nothing but high praise for the superb
graphic design by Babs Kall and the magical photography by Debra Todd. Our
writing staff continues to please those of all ages.
In the ten plus years we’ve proven to be the family magazine sitting on coffee
tables, not only in Lighthouse Point, but also from Boca Raton to Fort Lauderdale.
A well-deserved thank you also goes out to the great team at Printers Printer for
their high quality production.
Please note that the East Coast Orthopaedics ad for the April issue was an outdated ad.
Please accept our apologies for the oversight and for future lecture dates contact
954-942-4433.
A mother's love is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking, it never fails
or falters, even though the heart is breaking.

Wrigley
Wrigley got his name after Wrigley
Field because he loves to play ball.
Wrigley is a purebred boxer who is
approximately 4 years old. He was
rescued from animal control. The poor
guy was really skinny and had a large
wound on his neck but he is just beautiful
now and waiting for his permanent
home. He is such a sweet boy who loves
to play, and knows to sit, shake, and lay
down. Give him a chance to show you
his love.
Wrigley and all his friends can be seen
at the Florida Humane Society, 12:00-4:00
Thursday-Sunday, located at 3870 North
Powerline Road, Pompano Beach on the
NE corner of Sample and Powerline, next
to the Citco Car Wash. You can also view

Our Visit to
CUBA!
By Earl Maucker
December 2012
W
hen you think of Cuba, many
images come immediately to mind;
Cigars, fine rum, the constant beat of
Latin music and vintage American cars
motoring down the streets of Havana.
For the more cynical among us, the
vision may be of Communist Dictator
Fidel Castro, beautiful Spanish
architecture in near ruin, and a
population desperate to seek a better
life. If you actually get a chance to
travel to the island nation you will see
all of that — and so much more.
If a visit to Cuba is on your bucket
list — pack your bags. You may have
to wait a few months, but you can go
legally and you can experience a cross
section of life in Cuba guaranteed to
top your expectations — and provide
a better perspective of what life is actually like. You may be horrified
by the conditions in some areas, but you will also be in awe of its
beauty and the spirit of its people.
Although the politically powerful Cuban Americans have
continued to voice opposition, there has been a gradual relaxation of
trade and travel restriction between Cuba and the USA over the past
several years. Restrictions for family members who want to visit
relatives in Cuba have eased and even those without families in Cuba

and Susan Motley with husband Ken Rubin.
are being allowed to travel through a number of American tour
companies which are offering U.S. government licensed “People to
People” humanitarian and cultural tours to Havana and surrounding
provinces. There are nine cities in the U.S. that may soon offer flights
to Cuba. From Florida, there are frequent flights now available from
Miami and Tampa.
Among the licensed groups offering tours is Friendly Planet Travel
which operates out of Jenkintown, PA. They offer two options —
a five day trip which focuses mostly on Havana and surrounding
communities and a longer eight-day version that includes travel to
outlying provinces. Both tours feature visits and interaction with
school children and administrators, community centers, senior
citizens groups, farming communities and other social centers where
ideas, cultures, art, literature, medical knowledge and other areas of
interest can be discussed and observed.
In early December my wife, Betsy and I, along with Lighthouse
Point Mayor Fred Schorr and his wife Laraine; Steve and Nancy
League; and Susan Motley and husband Ken Rubin, took advantage
of such a tour offered by Friendly Planet called “Discover Havana:
A People to People Program.”
All of us understood that in a communist country like Cuba any
tour would be strictly regulated by the Cuban authorities. We would
see primarily what they wanted us to see, and for the most part, go
where they wanted us to go. From the U.S. side, the itinerary is closely
monitored by the U.S. government. For Friendly Planet to maintain
their license agreement, they must ensure visitors are participating in
the cultural exchanges rather than venturing to Cuba simply for
entertainment and recreation. While we were expected to participate
in the pre-arranged tours and dinners, there was also a fair amount of
free time to go off on our own.
We spent the majority of the first two days in Old Havana walking
the ancient cobblestone streets. You can’t help but be captured by its
beauty and sense of history. There were parks and plazas every few
blocks and while many of the surrounding neighborhoods were in
deplorable shape, we were all surprised at the amount of restoration
going on throughout the old city. Around every corner were splendid
examples of 1700s Spanish Colonial architecture — treasures beyond
belief. On both sides of the Port of Havana there are buildings dating
back to the 1500 and 1600s.
One of the delights of walking the streets is to see all the vintage
American autos. As far as we know, there hasn’t been a new American
car in Cuba since the revolution in 1959. As a result, there are many

Lifts Everyone’s Spirits!
By Carrie Bennett Art Teacher at St. Coleman’s School k-8
Photos by Jon Frangipane
The heart behind the “Rising Lights” event was to give my art
students a platform to showcase their talent to the public. I’ve been
looking for ways to get my students’ work outside the school walls
and I thought of local interior design business Greight Spaces. They
have generously held exhibits free of charge simply to honor the
artists’ work, and that’s just what I wanted to do for these kids. The
timing coincided nicely with the newly renovated Harbor Village
complex on Atlantic Boulevard. Lowes donated and installed for us a
chalkboard wall for the kids and families to color and draw during the
event, alongside music trio Chris & Chris. We had over 100 people throughout the evening enjoying the art
and entertainment, and most importantly seeing their children’s work
of art proudly displayed! My heart is to see a creative generation of
kids who are valued and honored for their uniqueness and celebrated
for their beauty through their art. There is so much value in
encouraging kids to dream and flourish in their gift. This event was
one small way of bringing that to life!
Displayed media contained: photography, painting, collage, drawing
and some 3D media. We would like to thank retired school teachers
Marcia Hirschy and Bruce Gambill for judging our event. The indoor
venue exhibited local artists and offered all sales to be direct to artist
without commission. Live music was provided by Chris & Chris.

The excitement grew as 5:00 pm rolled around on
Saturday, April 6th. Seven tables were being set, some
wilder creations than others. But you could tell it was going
to be a wild and colorful evening!
Sylvia Knight’s group did an outstanding job of table
decorating and apropos costumes to coordinate with the
theme of “50 Shades of Gray” — not really sure who
played the role of Christian, but there were many
contenders.
Just coincidentally: Sue Nelson’s table did a fantastic job
of foreseeing the next series of the best-selling E. L. James
books with their theme of “Shades of Gray Years Later.” All
their “Christians” looked incredibly well-preserved for their
age. On the menu was Sex on the Beach Cocktails and
Better than Sex Chocolate Pudding!
The final best use of theme was Kim Hill’s redneck group
called “Moonshiners and Hillbillies,” complete with a
moonshine still and a game of horseshoes played with
toilet seats.
The Best Food Theme was awarded to the Linda Bunn
group with a backyard barbeque called Road Kill on the
menu of exotic food items served.
Amy Patterson’s College Day’s Group was back for the
fourth year in a row, progressing from freshman year to
this year’s Spring Break. With this group, senior year and/or
graduation may still be a few years away. They all definitely
excelled in Jenga, Beer Pong, and Corn Hole. Are those
areas where they confer degrees?
Getting the award for Best Dance Moves— a large
group of over 30, practiced and dressed the part for
Gangnam Style dance entertainment throughout the
night, until they were advised that threats were levied
against the band if they played “Sexy Lady” one more time.
Earl Maucker was a standout performer!
Finally, a special award was given to the world Famous
Low Tides band and Joe Balistreri’s outstanding sound
system for providing the great dance music.
Dinner Under The Stars has been an annual April event
for the last seven years and is open to all LHP Residents.

954 784-3439 if interested in next year’s event.

A s I Wa s S ay i n g
Alan Is Now Friends With Thor
By Alan Williamson
It was a Wednesday night and Modern Family was
coming on in two minutes, which meant that the only place
you’d normally find me would be on the sofa waiting for
the show to start. Except I wasn’t there. And things were far
from normal.
Instead of settling in to catch one of my favorite sitcoms,
I was in front of my computer scanning a picture of an old
family pet that everyone had long since forgotten so I could
post it on Facebook. Why would I bother to do this you ask?
Well, if you really need to know, it’s because my brother Jim
had posted two other old photos of family pets on Facebook
leading my cousin Dawn to speculate about the name of a
dog that we kept in a coop outside a corral fence by the barn
in our backyard.
So there you have it. I had a perfectly logical reason for
my actions…or at least that’s what I tell myself. But then,
you tell yourself a lot of things to justify your bizarre
behavior once you’ve turned into a love slave of the
Facebook gods.
Facebook addicts will confirm that it all begins innocently
enough. When I first started, my Facebook profile sat frozen
for months — just another lifeless mannequin posing in the
cyberspace storefront. I was on the brink of pulling the plug
on it when the following short sentence posted to my wall
caught my eye:
Alan is now friends with Andy McGrane.
Hello. It was my good buddy Andy. The Andy I had
struggled to keep in touch with in the years since he moved
away. Facebook’s potential to connect and keep up with
friends and family hit me like a pie in the face. A slew of
similar messages followed.
Alan is now friends with Eric Williamson.
Alan is now friends with Kristen Williamson.
Alan is now friends with Marjorie Bornkamp Williamson.
(Hi Mom.)
Alan is now friends with Dawn Bornkamp Barbacci.

Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
Before I knew it, I had an entire family reunion at my
fingertips whenever I wanted it. And boy did I want it. I
wanted to see the rare picture my brother posted of our
long-gone grandfather and Great Aunt Shirley. I wanted to
see (and poke fun at) the profile picture my mom posted of
her as a patriotic four year old saluting the photographer. I
wanted to trade wisecracks on family photos from years
gone by showing alarming hair styles and drop-dead
hilarious fashion statements.
Most of all, I wanted to enjoy the new world of quick and
easy conversations that Facebook made possible with
relatives I hadn’t had contact with in years. Consider this
exchange with my cousin Dawn after I posted a picture of
me running a 5K race during my college days.
Me: This showcases my ability to pass older, heavyset
guys and young children during the home stretch.
Dawn: r u wearing JOX sneakers?
Me: I don’t think so — back then I wore Pumas.
Dawn: Classic blue suede-ish style…nice.
See? Nothing earth-shaking or newsworthy. But that’s
precisely the beauty of it. With Facebook, suddenly you’re
sitting at a family reunion and that dusty old photo
album that someone flips open starts the quips and
comments flying.
Which brings me back to that Wednesday night when I
almost missed an episode of Modern Family while posting a
photo on Facebook of a dog my grandmother Bessie gave
us because he was eating all her furniture. The dog’s name
was Thor and we kept him in the backyard by the barn
where furniture was scarce and the chances to bark at
horses and whiffle ball-playing kids were unlimited.
Somewhere, in that big dog coop in the sky, I’d like to
think Thor is looking down at his Facebook photo album
and thinking:
“Nice family reunion guys — thanks for remembering me. And
while I have everyone’s attention, I just want to set the record
straight: I only ate furniture when Bessie forgot to feed me.” ◆

The Garden Lady Says…
A Bounty of Basil
By Donna Torrey
Fabulous Italian Basil;
not just for pesto anymore!
The weather has been so fine, and if you’ve been watering
faithfully, your garden should be producing bountifully. The
herbs are at their peak now, and it’s a good time to harvest
them before the hot weather and heavy rains put them
into a funk.
I happen to have a bevy of basil and I love it so much that
I hate to waste even one stalk. My favorite way to use it up is
to make herbal vinegar. This is easy and quick and uses up
lots of the stuff.
Here’s what you do: First find an old wine bottle, or other
throwaway that you will use to steep the leaves and stems in.
It should be glass and not metal. Find an old chopstick; the
reason for the chopstick is next. After you have cut back the
basil and have lots of stalks with leaves and even flowers, you
start stuffing these stalks into the bottle. The chopstick works
great for ramming it down.
Just keep packing the bottle until you can’t pack anymore.
The bottle should be solid basil. Now, pour a good quality
cider vinegar over it all. I find that a funnel is most helpful at
this point. Put the cork in and let it sit for at least 2 weeks in a
dim corner of the kitchen.
After that time, find a pretty bottle and using your handy
funnel, pour the vinegar tea into the new bottle. The old leaves
will remain in the bottle, which is discarded. If you want to
get fancy, put a couple of fresh leaves in the new bottle for the
finishing touch.
Herbal vinegar not only looks beautiful but it tastes
amazing on salad, or used as a marinade, and makes a great
gift. There is simply nothing like it. You can experiment using
other herbs, or combinations. Try mint, tarragon, rosemary,
coriander, fennel, dill, parsley, and add a hot pepper and garlic
clove if you dare. I can’t think of a nicer present for that special
mom. You can do this! ◆

LYTERA™
THE NEXT
T GENERATION
T
IN SKIN BRIGHTENING
Byy Melanie S. Hecker, MD, MBA
Why Use a Skin Brightener?
As a function of living in South Florida, the amount of
skin discolorations that comes into our Dermatology
practice is high. Skin discolorations are visible skin
imperfections that appear as dark spots and can typically
be found in Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Age Spots,
Photoaging, “Pregnancy Mask”, and Freckles caused by
the sun. Patients that only have incidental sun exposure
still complain of the sun’s efffects
fects on the evenness of
their skin tone. Many products promote a more even
complexion, but often they require a continued use of a
prescription medication that with prolonged use could
have side efffects. Other topical products found in many
over-the-counter preparations do not go deep enough to
reach the
th tar
t rget
gett cells
cell causing the increase in pigmentation.
So what is new and available for this problem?
Ly
ytera™
Lytera is a brand new
w,, brightening product that addresses
the appearance of skin discoloration. Lytera is formulated
with highly efffective
fec
antioxidants and it efffectively
reduces the appearance of dark spots creating a more even
skin tone. Results can be seen in as early as 4 weeks with
continuous reductions in hyperpigmentation even over
6 months. Prescription strength skin brighteners cannot
be used on all skin types, while Lytera is made for all
skin types, both light and dark. Its non-hydroquinone,
elegant formulation is extremely well-tolerated. And the
convenience of being available without a prescription

Our Visit to
Nacional Hotel
CUBA!
Continued from page 11
cars from the late 1940s to the late-1950s. These cars maintain
their original appearance — although many of the autos have
been repainted and customized by salvaged parts. Over the years,
the Cubans have used any means possible to keep the vehicles
running. It’s safe to say there are very few original parts under the
hood. It’s interesting to note that as more American visitors come
to Cuba, many are turning these antique cars into taxis as a lure to
tourists. As we walked the streets, many of the drivers would try to
appeal to us to take pictures — for a price — or take a ride — again,
for a price.
While in
downtown
Havana, we
visited restaurants, both
government run
and private. In a
Communist
nation like Cuba, most property and
businesses are nationalized, or
owned by the government. Private
ventures are rare. Family owned
restaurants — called paladars, are a
fairly recent addition to the rare
Cuban entrepreneurial scene. They
were allowed in the 1990s but on a
very limited basis. Some operated
under the government radar.
However, now, there are more than
300 privately owned restaurants in
Havana. In the few we visited we found that the paladars were much
more efficient and served better food than the government-run
establishments. It was a basic lesson in capitalism. When there is
motivation and opportunity, the product is superior. Another rare sight
we saw — were apartments and homes for sale. This kind of
transaction was prohibited until about a year ago. Housing is either
inherited or assigned by the government.
Speaking of commerce, we learned that 53% of all food is imported
into Cuba. And, you know which country is one of the largest
30
Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
importers? It’s the U.S. That’s right. In spite of the Helms-Burton bill
that prohibits trade with Cuba there are exemptions. The largest trade
partners with Cuba are Venezuela, China, Canada, Spain and then
the U.S. We got this information during an evening lecture from
Jorge Mario Sanchez, a professor at the University in Cuba. He also
lectures at Harvard. Sanchez said that tourism in Cuba is “a poison
gift.” He said the infrastructure to support intense tourism simply
isn’t available and they want work strategically to protect the
environment to prevent long-term damage. He said issues between
the U.S. and Cuba are very complex. He believes talks will continue
under the Obama administration but work to improve the
relationship will be “work along the margins rather than a wholesale
change in the law.” Clearly there are many economic opportunities
for the U.S. — especially in Florida if the issues that separate the two
countries can be resolved.
In the meantime, we enjoyed what we could while we were
there. Our hotel was the famous Nacional Hotel. This historic beauty
was worth the price of admission itself. Sitting on a bluff above the
Havana harbor, the hotel was built in 1930 and designed by the
architect who developed the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. One
of its features is a bar area filled with old photos and historic references
to the celebrities, athletes and political notables who visited over the
years. Pictures of movie stars like Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, James
Cagney and Errol Flynn adorn the walls. And there are athletes like
boxer Rocky Marciano, and baseball great Stan Musial to name just a
couple. While the food wasn’t great at the hotel, the accommodations
were adequate considering the hotel was built in the 30s and materials
necessary for the upkeep are hard to come by. The rooms were
comfortable but the furniture, fixtures and overall appearance, a bit
worn.
On our second day, we visited an elementary school in an Old
Havana historic neighborhood. We dropped off gifts to the school
and visited with the school’s principal. Of particular interest were the
colorful drawings and quotes celebrating 1959 Revolution. The school
was clean and orderly, but desperately needed supplies. Then it was
off to a senior citizens center. Again, it appeared to be very well
maintained, but we wondered how much of it was for show for
tourists. For instance, there were a number of treadmill machines set
LHP MAG MAY 13 4/8/13 1:04 PM Page 31
up in a row, but no plugs to accommodate electricity. There was a
daycare center set up on the top floor of the center and it was nice to
see the elderly interact with the preschoolers.
We visited a neighborhood where the residents celebrated the
African Cuban religion of Santeria which is quite common in Cuban
culture. We saw some street art and
witnessed some vibrant music and
dancing, which — to be honest — was a
bit frightening for those of us
unaccustomed to such intensity.
On our third day we had a real treat. It
started with a visit to Finac Vigia — the
Cuban home of Ernest Hemmingway
followed by a trip to nearby Cojimar, the
fishing village that was the background for
his Pulitzer Prize winning book, “The Old
Man and the Sea.” I had
visited the home in a
previous visit in the
1990s and the
transformation to the
home today was
unbelievable. In my
previous trip, the home,
his boat, Pinar, and the
grounds in general were
quite rundown. During
this visit, there were
dozens of state workers restoring the site. The grounds were well
maintained and there was even a souvenir shop nearby. The boat and
boathouse had been rebuilt and the house cleaned, painted and
organized. We learned that Castro himself oversaw the restoration of
Hemmingway’s boat. All of this was another reminder of the importance
of building tourism in Cuba.
We also stopped by a nearby a community known as Alamar where
there are community gardens, called Organoponicos. Residents grow
fruit, vegetables and herbs for their own use and they also sell the
produce locally. Farmers have very limited access to pesticides and
fertilizers which is why organic farming has become popular. They raise
worms there to help fertilize the soil and plant a variety of flowers in
each row of vegetables which we’re told help confuse insect pests.
That night, we headed back to Old Havana to one of the real
highlights of the trip — listening to the famous Buena Vista Social Club
featuring authentic old-style Cuban music. There was lots of rum, lots of
music and lots of fun.
On our fourth day we traveled to Pinar del Rio Province where we
observed another type of farming and land conservation. We visited Las
Terrazas which was a former coffee plantation run by French settlers.
This province is the home to much of Cuba’s tobacco farming. Las
Terrazas was founded shortly after the Cuban Revolution as a kind of
model community when a significant reforestation project began. The
area is now part of UNESCO’s Biosphere Reserve. It is a very rural — but
one of magnificent scenic beauty. Cubans cannot just move here if they
want. They must have permission from the government and be
assigned a house to live in. If someone wants to move out, they can, but
their home is reassigned to some other family. The best meal of our trip
was served outside on a patio overlooking the lush landscape and
beautiful scenery.
On our way back from Las Terrazas
we stopped at a home and
neighborhood decorated by the selfproclaimed “Picasso of the
Caribbean,” Jose Fuster. This artist
turned his own home and ultimately
many houses in his neighborhood
into artistic projects mostly using
colorful ceramic tile. One man’s art
landscape is another’s nightmare.
Unique would be the best way to
describe it.
On our final night we went to the
famous Ambos Mundos Hotel for
dinner. This is the hotel where Hemingway lived in the 1930s and
reportedly was the place he wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls.” Lots of
rum — lots of music — you get the idea.
Not on our itinerary, but a must stop for anyone visiting Cuba is
The Museum of the Revolution. We went off on our own on the
last morning before our flight back to the U.S. As you would
expect, the overthrow of U.S. backed president and military leader
Fulgencio Batista by Fidel Castro is the source of great celebration.
The museum is housed in a beautiful building which was once the
presidential palace — a grand structure of enormous importance and
spectacular architecture. Relics including arms, tanks, documents and
photographs were on display. The vessel Granma, which Castro used to
ferry himself and his band revolutionaries from Mexico to Cuba was on
display in a separate building adjacent to the palace.
All in all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. If Cuba is one of
those destinations that really is on that bucket list, we highly
recommend you give it a try. Once relations with Cuba are opened up,
we suspect much of the charm of the Island will disappear as throngs of
tourists descend on the nation pushing the infrastructure to the limit.

Legendary Highwaymen
at Sample-McDougald House
Photos by Debra Todd
O
n Friday, March 22nd, over a hundred guests gathered at the historic
Sample-McDougald House in Pompano Beach for an opportunity to preview
the paintings of eight Florida Highwaymen artists. The following day, the art
exhibit and sale was open to the public.
The Florida Highwaymen, a group of several dozen landscape artists,
have been called “the last great American art movement of the 20th
century.” This group of self-taught and self-mentoring African-American
artists began painting in the mid-1950s, creating a large body of work,
utilizing basic construction materials rather than traditional art supplies that
have become a timeless collection of iconic Florida landscape scenes.
Highwaymen painters— Al Black, John Maynor, Willie Reagan,
Doretha Hair, Charles Walker and Carnell Williams.

Since Established art galleries refused to accept their works, during the 1960s and 70s the
artists sold their paintings by the thousands out of the trunks of their cars, along roadsides
throughout Florida. Twenty-six Florida Highwaymen were inducted into the Florida Artists
Hall of Fame in 2004. At the reception, Pompano Beach City Commissioner Woodrow Poitier
read a proclamation, that declaring March 23rd “Florida Highwaymen Day in Pompano Beach.”
The weekend event was a joint project of the Sample-McDougald House Preservation
Society and the Pompano Beach Historical Society. Funds raised through this event will be
used to further the missions of these two heritage organizations.

Night On the Town
Staged Readings –
A Valuable Experience
By Wendell Abern
Whether you are Neil Simon or Neil Nobody, every playwright receives a
staged reading prior to production.
The playwright selects actors to read the roles he/she has created, then
invites an audience to attend. This invaluable step in the evolution of a
play permits the playwright to determine what to revise, what to delete,
what to add ... and sometimes, whether to scrap everything and start over.
On Monday night, March 18, I selected four writers from the Ft. Lauderdale
Writers Group to read a two-act farce I had recently completed, entitled,
"Oodles, Darling. Oodles." The four had demonstrated considerable acting
talent in cold readings during our meetings at the “Pink Church.”
An audience of writers from the group, and many friends, almost filled
the 55-seat Empire Theatre. After stellar performances by the
writer/actors, the audience made many helpful suggestions and ideas,
and I went back to the computer to begin massive revisions.
My next attempt will be to find a professional acting group and a
theater for the final production. This all takes a huge amount of patience
and fortitude.

Is Your Portfolio
Truly Diversified?
The financial markets always move up and down.
As an investor, you’re no doubt happy to see the
“ups” — but the “downs” can seem like a real
downer. Isn’t there any way to help smooth out the
volatility in your investment portfolio?
Your best bet is to diversify your holdings.
Unfortunately, many investors think that if they
own a few stocks and a bond, they’re diversified.
But you have to go deeper. For the equity portion
of your portfolio, you may want to own stocks representing many
different industries, as well as international stocks. And when you
purchase bonds, don’t just stick with U.S. Treasury securities —
consider corporate and municipal bonds, too. You can diversify
even further by owning short-term, intermediate-term and
long-term bonds.
Keep in mind that diversification can’t guarantee a profit or protect
against loss. Nonetheless, building a diversified portfolio is a smart
investment move — so look for diversification opportunities
whenever possible.

The 34th Annual Library Volunteer
Recognition Luncheon
Photos by Debra Todd
he luncheon was hosted by the Doreen Gauthier
Lighthouse Point Library staff at St. Paul the Apostle
Catholic Church on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Library
Director Christy Keyes welcomed nearly 90 persons
attending, including Mayor and Mrs. Fred Schorr,
Commissioner Sandy Johnson, Commissioner Earl Maucker
and his wife Betsy, and Commissioner Glenn Troast,
members of the Library Advisory Board and members of
the Friends of the Library Board. The honorees were the
volunteers, who during this past year contributed nearly
11,000 hours of service, working in all areas of the library
including circulation, preparing and presenting 150 children
and youth programs, teaching 420 senior education
classes, website upgrades, and organizing the semi-annual
book sales; of which the last three have generated over
$10,000 to support the library.
T
The elegant table setting in silver, white, and Tiffany blue
created by Honey Bunch Florist reflected Mrs. Keyes theme
of “the essential piece of the
puzzle.” The menu provided by
Another Perfect Party Catering
was served by the ladies of St.
Paul’s Women’s Club. The Teen
Advisory Board (who set and
decorated each table) and dessert
chef Janice Clermont were
gratefully acknowledged. Retired
rector of St. Paul’s, Msgr. Frederick
Brice, led the invocation.
Borrowing from author
Michael P. Green, who
describes each volunteer as
a jigsaw puzzle piece with
protrusions representing
strength and indentions
limitations, Christy reminded
everyone that what is
accomplished in the library is
only through the unified
efforts of volunteers, staff,
Library Director Christy Keyes
and administration, reaching
out to one another with their best selves. And, like a
jigsaw puzzle, if one piece (or volunteer) is missing, it is
very evident. Yet, once all the pieces are present and
properly assembled, a beautiful picture emerges; just like
when volunteers seamlessly reach out and complement
one another’s strength any limitations become invisible.
Puzzles, libraries, and life are at their best when one
reaches out to help another.
Each volunteer received a certificate of appreciation signed
by Mayor Schorr, and a silver puzzle-shaped lapel pin to
remind them of their essential piece in the library’s success.

Skin Care
May is Melanoma Awareness Month
By David Hecker, MD and Melanie S Hecker, MD
May is “Melanoma Monday Month!” Each year the American
Academy of Dermatology supports a nationwide campaign to educate
Americans about the importance of early detection of skin cancer. More
than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the
United States this year. Most skin cancers are easily treated and cured
as long as they are found through diligent screening practices.
Performing regular skin self-examinations is an easy way to detect
suspicious moles that could be cancerous, and research shows involving
a partner in the process can improve the early detection of skin cancer.
Here are several important facts about skin cancer:
• Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin
cancer in their lifetime.
• The three most common skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma,
squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma.
• Basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common skin
cancers and are highly curable when detected early.
• The incidence of melanoma has been steadily increasing for the past
30 years. Since 1992, melanoma has increased 3.1 percent annually in
non-Hispanic Caucasians, but in recent years it is increasing more
rapidly in young white women (3.8 percent since 1995) and men age
65 and older (8.8 percent since 2003).
• Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 2529 years old and the second most common form of cancer for
adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old.
• Melanoma is increasing faster in females 15-29 years old than males in
the same age group. In females 15-29 years
old, the torso is the most common location
for developing melanoma, which might be
due to high-risk tanning behaviors.
• Melanoma in individuals 10-39 years old is highly curable, with fiveyear survival rates exceeding 90 percent.
• One American dies of melanoma almost every hour (every 61
minutes). In 2009, 8,650 deaths will be attributed to melanoma —
5,550 men and 3,100 women.
• The American Cancer Society recommends a skin cancer-related
checkup and counseling about sun exposure as part of any periodic
health examination for men and women beginning at age 20.
Here are some tips on performing a skin self-exam:
• Examine your body front and back in the mirror, then look at the right
and left sides with your arms raised.
• Bend elbows and look carefully at forearms, upper underarms, and
palms.
• Look at the backs of your legs and feet, the spaces between your toes,
and on the soles.
• Examine the back of the your neck and scalp with a hand mirror. Part
hair for a closer look.
• Finally, check your back and buttocks with a hand mirror. ◆

Do Food labels Tell Us the Truth?
He a l t hw i s e
By Kelly Doyle
Food labels, from fat content to calories to sugar; if you bother
taking the time to read a label you surely want to trust what you
see. Unfortunately, that is not the case on most labels, or at least
the laws leave a lot of grey area. Do you take the time to read the
label of a product you are about to purchase? The words ‘No Fat’
and ‘All Natural’ don’t mean anything today, yet they are added
to box fronts and cans as a tool to market their product. So, the
question is: what exactly is a label telling us?
A label is broken down into many categories, but we will talk
about two main areas starting with serving size. The nutritional
information on the label applies to one serving. The FDA sets
serving sizes for all foods. Total calories are calculated per
serving. You need to check the label to see how many servings
are in the container, don’t assume it is only one. When reading
the actual serving size you may find there are 3 servings. Now
you need to take the calories per serving and multiply by three.
Something you thought might have been 200 calories now
becomes 600 calories.
Next let’s talk about fat. The best example I tell to clients is the
graham cracker. In the 80’s when ‘no fat’ became the thing to put
on the label, a large company that makes grahams came up with
52
Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
what they thought was a brilliant idea.
In order to be allowed to put the ‘No Fat’
label on the front of the box they needed to play with the label
numbers. The fat percentage on the label is broken down by
weight. If the weight is less than .5 grams they can say the
product has ‘No Fat’. So the graham cracker company took a look
at the math and figured out that if they added to the total weight
of the graham that would bring down the weight of fat. So they
developed the ‘honey graham cracker.’ The honey added to the
weight, and so brought down the total weight of the fat (below
.5 grams) and so now the box could say ‘No Fat.’ Yes, no fat! Did
the fat content change? No it did not. Did the sugar content
change? Yes, it did. Now you had a snack that appears to be
healthier, but has the same fat content and now more sugar!
This is a small example of what is allowed on labeling, it keeps
us in the dark, thinking that we are doing the right thing, when
actually we are adding to the problem. Take a moment to read
labels, you may be surprised with what you’ve been drinking
or eating. ◆

Legal Matters
Before Doing A Trust, Be Sure
You Have Equity In Your Home
By Martin Zevin, Attorney
In this challenging economic environment, legal advice may not
be the same as it used to be. In the last year, I have turned away several clients who were
interested in doing a Revocable Living Trust to avoid probate on
their condo or home when they passed away. In those cases where
the client had a negative equity (the amount of the mortgage
exceeded the market value of the property), I recommended not
doing a Revocable Living Trust, at least at this time.
Yes, doing a Revocable Living Trust and a Quit Claim Deed
transferring the property from the client individually to the client as
Trustee of the Trust would avoid probate upon death. However, if
heirs inherit property where the mortgage exceeds the property
value, I generally recommend that the beneficiaries not agree to
accept the inheritance unless the bank holding the mortgage is
willing to significantly reduce it to result in some positive equity.
Therefore, I explain to clients, it does not make sense to pay me a
fee as well as court costs for recording the deed, when they are not
necessarily going to be helping their heirs in bequeathing a property
with negative equity. I suggest they live long enough to see their
property increase in value to where it exceeded the amount of the
mortgage; at that time they could come back to me. Granted, this advice results in me losing an attorney’s fee,
however, I believe it is the duty of every lawyer to give the best
advice possible, even if it means less money in the lawyer’s pocket.
Of course, if you own your home with no mortgage, or if the
mortgage is less than the current market value, it still makes
excellent sense to consider a Revocable Living Trust and Quit Claim
Deed to avoid probate when you die.
In addition, regardless of the equity in your home, it is extremely
important to have current advance care directives to protect you if
you are incapacitated. These include the Durable Power of Attorney
(which must specifically include the address of your property) as
well as the Designation of Health Care Surrogate and Living Will.
Recent new Florida laws could mean that your current documents
need to be revised. ◆

Get On Your Cell Phone!
By Jennifer Kovacs
Isn’t it the most annoying thing when you are in a meeting and
attendees are on their cell phones? How about when you’re driving
and glance to the right lane, only to find the man in the car next to
you is staring down at his cell phone? Or, if you’re out to a beautiful
dinner and one of your guests has their iPhone on the table the
whole time, constantly checking emails. Talk about rude.
Well, get used to it! Everything is going mobile these days (that
doesn’t make any of the actions I mentioned earlier excusable), and
reality is this generation cannot survive without constantly being
plugged in one way or another. We would have withdrawals, especially
when we’re not at a desk, in an office or in front of a computer.
Would you even know this country was in a recession by walking
into the Apple Store? It’s madness. Not only do we have to have a
smart phone, but we have to have the latest and greatest version of
this five hundred dollar piece of integral equipment. So what does
this mean for you the business owner? It means you better be good
to these smartphones and Tablets, so they’ll be good to you.
There are three options when developing or creating a mobile
friendly website; microsites, mobile versions or the ever so popular
App (short for Application). A microsite is just a mobile version of
your website. This version of your website will reformat itself based
on the device you are using (phone or Tablet) meaning that is coded
specifically to recognize the width of the browser you are using. It’s
54
Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
called a ‘Responsive Website’ (see Time
Magazine, Disney and BBC).They are not
always a completely accurate interpretation of your website but it
will allow viewers to access a good portion of the information.
A mobile version can look different. It is developed for smart
phones and is created to fit a landing page and main menu on the
Homescreen of your browser. Often time, people use a totally
different URL (Domain Name); sometimes you will see .mobi, which
stands for MobileRead. This option is a completely separate service
and is usually based on request. However, it is the most user friendly
and cost effective.
Apps are another entity in themselves. An App should serve a real
purpose, whether it’s purchasing while on the go, allowing check in
or log in, even revolutionizing the way employees on the road do
business. An App can open up a new world for your company.
Custom Apps are relatively more expensive than most people
anticipate but if done correctly, as well as being problem solving, they
are worth every penny. It is important to work with a team that
understands your needs when it comes to developing an App.
Any way you spin it, your business should be mobile and one of
these options will need to be addressed for future success. ◆

Cantankerously Yours
Street-Smart Education of a Curmudgeon
By Wendell Abern
Dear Inquisitors,
Recently, when I read a cantankerous column to my writers
group, my young friend Sam pointed out that I always pick on
women when unleashing my curmudgeonly wrath. Taking great
umbrage at such an accusation, I reviewed many previous
columns…and discovered he was right.
I hate it when that happens.
Sam, thinking back over my life, I know exactly why I don’t
confront men the same way I do women. It’s all because of Donald
Gray — and the events leading up to meeting him.
* * *
I was always The New Kid. I went to eleven different grammar
schools in seven different Midwestern towns before I entered fifth
grade in Chicago.
In those days, it was traditional for the new kid to have a fight
with the bully in his class. I learned something from each fight.
Such encounters lurk in my subconscious even today. I won’t
recount all of them here; only those which illustrate how we grow
up, but never really get away.
Fargo, North Dakota. Second school, first grade. Age six.
My playground baptism. Recess. The pumpkin-faced,
bowlegged bully, accompanied by an entourage of three, stepped in
front of me as I headed toward the swings.
“You’re the new kid.” Not a question; an accusation.
“Yeah.”
“What’s your name?”
“Wendell.”
“C’mon, what’s your name?”
“I said. Wendell.”
“Nobody’s called Wendell.” He turned to his minions. “You ever
heard anyone called that?” Head shakes. Denials. Shrugs.
“New kid doesn’t want to give us his name.”
I noted the shift from singular to plural as the bully jumped
forward and wrapped his arms around my neck. We wrestled. Fell
on the ground. No big deal. “My friends call me ‘Dendy,’” I
grunted.
“‘At's better,” he said, and helped me up.
Fargo lesson: Beware of questions; any answer provoke a fight.
Omaha, Nebraska. Sixth school (second one in Omaha). Third
grade. Age eight.
Recess. I really hated recess.
Bully had buck teeth, only one lieutenant.
“You’re the new kid. You sit in front of me.”
“Well, I’m new at this school, but not new to Omaha.”
“Oh. What school you been at before here?”
A light went on! Keep ‘em talking!
“Roosevelt Elementary. Awful school. Teacher looked like
a cowpie.”
Chuckles.
“Whaddaya think Mrs. McGillicuddy looks like?”
“John Wayne.”
Laughs. Back-slaps. Handshakes. No fight!
Omaha lesson: Use your mouth as a weapon! Make ‘em laugh!
Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ninth school. Fourth grade. Age nine.
Tried to convince my new teacher I was allergic to the
schoolyard gravel, and couldn’t go outside at recess. She said I
needed a note from a doctor.
I slinked out after everyone else. Bully, with cruel mouth and at
least ten lackeys, waiting for me.

“Who’re you? I never seen you before.”
Humor. I needed humor. I had just
read a book on dinosaurs.
“Just started here today. My name is Terry. Terry Dactyl.”
“‘Zat Eye-talian?”
Clearly, the bully knew nothing about dinosaurs.
“Actually, it’s Romanian,” I said.
“Sounds Eye-talian.”
Bad. Very bad. The year was 1943. We were at war, and Italy was
an enemy. Think! Think!
“Romanian,” I said. “Both my parents. But my dad says his
mother-in-law— she’s my grandma—was created in a lab.”
Chuckles. Keep ‘em laughing!
“When grandma came to dinner last week and I called her
Frankenstein, my dad almost choked on his soup.”
Laughs. I asked if they had a softball team. The bully asked what
position I played, said they needed a shortstop.
“‘At’s my position!” I said, even though I’d never played
anything but the outfield. No fight.
Minneapolis lesson: Humor, yes. But always have another idea
ready, just in case..
Chicago, Twelfth (and final) grammar school. Fifth grade. Age ten.
My first day. Burt, the guy sitting next to me said, “I wanta tell
you somethin’, but don’t look. Kid in the back o’ your row. Don’
look, I said! Name is Donald Gray. He’s starin’ atcha. He’s gonna
look for ya at recess.”
“Why?”
“‘Cause you’re the new kid. He always fights the new kid in
whatever class he’s in. He loves to fight ‘cause he knows he can
beat up anyone. Watch ‘urself.”
“Thanks.”
Burt was right. Donald Gray was waiting for me, accompanied
by a crowd that formed a semi-circle behind him. I silently cursed
whoever had invented recess.
“So,” he said, “Where’ dja come from?”
“Bismarck, Fargo twice. Pierre, Omaha twice. Duluth and
Minneapolis.”
“Yeah. Not funny.”
“Listen," I said. “I understand you wanta have a fight. But see, I
just got over a hernia operation, so we’ll hafta wait a coupla weeks.”
I was trying to conjure up another idea when Donald Gray hit
me. He hit me with a roundhouse left, and with a fist that made a
large “thwack” sound against my face. No one had ever hit me in
the face. I literally saw stars.
I woke up in the nurse’s office; she was applying a horridsmelling rag to my nose, which I later discovered was ammonia. I
was sent home for the day. Two weeks later, after many similar
incidents, Donald Gray was sent to a reform school.
Chicago lesson: If you’re going to use your mouth as a weapon,
do it with girls, not boys.
* * *
So you see, Sam, you live. You learn. I blame all my confrontations
with women on Donald Gray.

Amelia
By T. C. Mickley
It was another New Year’s Eve party at Shelly and Roz’s
palatial home. The turnout was large, as usual. I spotted a
tall, heavy-set young woman in the music room.
We began talking, and at one point, she gave me her
business card. I was impressed. It was printed on Swiss opaline
parchment, one of the most expensive papers available.
“I’m Amelia,” she said. After her name on the card were
the words, “Certified Public Accountant.”
“I’m Omar, mechanical engineer. Pleased to meet you.”
“Likewise.”
“Would you like me to bring you a drink?”
“Straight orange juice, please.”
I brought back two orange juices, and Amelia smiled
broadly.
We talked until midnight, when Shelly turned up his
stereo full-blast for a few seconds. It was his way of marking
the holiday.
“I can’t think of anything witty to say, Amelia, so Happy
New Year!”
“Same to you, Omar!” We touched glasses and sipped.
“Amelia, would you like to have lunch together
sometime?”
“I’m going on a one-month cruise, starting tomorrow, but
when I get back, I would be delighted.”
The month dragged by, but finally the day of her return
arrived.
I found her Swiss opaline business card, called her, and
we agreed to meet at Longhorn Steak House.
The food was excellent, as usual. We had another
extended conversation in which I learned that we liked the
same books, movies, plays, pets—virtually everything.

A Tribute From the Heart
Copyright © December, 2012, by T. C. Mickley
Editor’s note: T.C. Mickley is a member of the Fort Lauderdale
Writers’ Group.
It was Sunday morning, and the new pastor was welcoming everyone as they entered
the church, not with a shake of hands, but with hugs and kisses.
The church members were happy with the very friendly pastor.
His name was Reverend Jack Noble.
Many years later, our church congregation was still with his hugs and kisses.
Our pastor made lots of friends with his outgoing personality.
As time passed by, I decided to make plans. I wanted Reverend Jack Noble to officiate at
my funeral when the time came with hugs and kisses to send me on my way to heaven.
However, Reverend Noble recently announced his retirement, so my plans changed.
He will be greatly missed by all.
Now it’s time we give you hugs and kisses to thank you for your
service to
our “Pink Church” and its members.
Goodbye Reverend Noble xxx

“Omar, I'd like to do your tax
return.”
“That’s very nice of you, Amelia,
but I’ve already arranged to have my
return done.”
“Who’s going to do it?”
“My friend, Edwin.”
“Let me do it instead.”
“Amelia, I’ve already given my tax papers to Edwin.”
“Get them back, and let me do your return.”
“I’m sorry, but Edwin knows many specific deductions
that no other accountant would include.”
“I can handle that. Let me do your return.”
“Edwin would be very hurt if I had someone else do
my taxes.”
“Let me do your tax return, Omar.”
“Amelia, for goodness sake!”
“Tell me, how much does Edwin charge you to do
your return?”
“Nothing.”
There was a long pause. Then Amelia said, “Don’t call
me, Omar,” and stalked out of the restaurant.
I finished my meal and went home, going directly into
the room that is my office, and did what had to be done. It
was the first time I had ever shredded a piece of Swiss
opaline parchment.

Senior Shout Out!
Springtime Fruit-Picking
By Emily Jancura
This is Emily Jancura, owner of Florida’s Finest Home Care,
once again hitting the streets looking for fun, and cool things many
young hearted seniors can do right here in our own community.
May…What’s going on around town you may ask? IT’S
SPRINGTIME! What’s not going on? The Gardenia has started to
bloom, there are blue jays nesting in the Black Olive, our coconuts
have become round and full, and even the tree snails have returned
to the front door. Ahhh…Springtime! “But what to do?” My
instincts immediately switch to cleaning closets and organizing
dressers. BUT I STOP MYSELF! Instead I re-focus. And I fling
myself into spring. With simple pleasures on my mind, and think,
maybe, there is time for that later.
I think back to the time when I enjoyed simple things the most.
My Uncle Arthwell once told me that nine was the greatest age to
be. I don’t think that’s true now, but it certainly makes a good
benchmark. When I was nine years old, I loved to be outside with
my grandma, picking vegetables from her garden in North
Carolina. My Grandpa showed me how to snip the okra, and how
to pluck and not pull the berries. I loved the fresh air, warm
sunshine, blossoming trees, and the rich smell of soil.
I ask myself, “Why not be outside right now, enjoying life’s
simple pleasures, like PICKING FRUIT?” Exotic, tropical fruit.
We’re in Florida. Think tropical paradise—pomegranate, star
fruit, lychee, sapodilla, jack fruit, lemons, limes, tangelos. Picking
fruit is fun and deliciously satisfying—whether your nine years
old or ninety.

Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
Did you know there are U-Pick farms
within 15 miles of LHP, and some hydroponic ones too? There is a hydroponic
farm just north of us and you can pick
strawberries in May. The great thing about
hydroponic farming is that it can mean no bending or kneeling!
The fruits can grow in waist-high baskets which make picking
more easily accessible.
Strawberries are always nice, but while you’re there, you may
reach up and pick a lychee, or a star fruit. These delectable fruits
are native to Southeast Asia, but they’ve become common to south
Florida. Sure, you may have made strawberry jam-but have you
ever made lychee jam? Or how about jack fruit jam? Isn’t life
delicious? Yes! Especially when trying something new.
U-pick farms sometimes offer other attractions as well: tropical
gardens, a country store, homemade ice cream, and, of course,
pleasant walks between rows of vegetables, like cherry tomatoes.
So, what are you waiting for? Bring your special someone, your
grandkids, or maybe a friend to pick for you. Lace up some
practical shoes, put on sunscreen, and get ready to bring home
some tropical paradise…pomegranate salsa anyone? ◆
*Google “U-Pick Florida” for a list of farms nearest you.

John Offerdahl is…
The Gridiron Griller
Don McNeal and Chef Steven Acosta of da Campo Osteria @ Il
Laguna Hotel with John Offerdahl.
After an All-American college career including two national
championships at Alabama with Bear Bryant, Don McNeal
followed up with a ten-year pro career with the Miami Dolphins
and Coach Shula that included two Super Bowls! Talk about
storied! When I was drafted in 1986, Don and his wife Rhonda
were so welcoming to me. Since retiring in 1989, Don has
poured himself into kids and ministry. He speaks around the
country to school kids about the dangers of drugs and his faith.
Not even his battle with MS keeps him sidelined. In addition, he
does lots of charity work including my Gridiron Grill Off each year.
This year he teamed up with Chef Steven Acosta from Da Campo
Osteria, at the Il Lugana Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale to create this
month’s boneless rib recipe. You are going to love the Floribean
flavors—indigenous ribs!
McNeal’s Boneless Ribs
READY…Line up your ingredients
• baby back ribs rack

• 1 T finely chopped cilantro
• salt and pepper
• 2 1/2 c chicken stock

2 grams of ground cumin, 3 grams of allspice, and 9 grams of brown sugar. Rip the rack so that the bones are upright. Score the
bones from top to bottom using a small sharp knife. Season ribs with the dry rub covering all surfaces. Lay rack onto a baking sheet
tray. Pour chicken stock into the tray. Cover tightly with plastic wrap then cover with aluminum foil. Place in convection oven at 250°

Identity Theft
STOP! — THINK! — CONNECT!
Keep a Clean Machine Campaign
By Denise Richardson
The National Cyber Security Alliance has launched the
STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Keep a Clean Machine
Campaign in an effort to help people protect their online
devices from being infected with malware –especially the
type of malware that connects users’ computers with a
“botnet”—networks of personal computers infected by
malware and remote controlled by criminals. Your infected
computer turns into a “bot” or “zombie,” and is then used
to help criminals do their dirty work. Botnets are used to
send junk email (spam), attack websites, and distribute
more malware, among other things.
Keeping your Internet-connected devices free from
malware and infections makes the Internet safer for you and
more secure for everyone. When you cross the street, you
look both ways to make sure it’s safe. Staying safe on the
Internet is similar. It takes some common sense steps.
STOP: Before you use the Internet, take time to understand
the risks and learn how to spot potential problems.
THINK: Take a moment to be certain the path ahead is clear.
Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions
online could impact your safety, or your family’s.
CONNECT: Enjoy the Internet with greater confidence,
knowing you’ve taken the right steps to safeguard yourself
and your computer.
Take this May Warning Seriously:
Botnets and Image Stealing Malware Threats
Most of the time, when you hear about a new malware or
spyware variant that’s making the rounds, it either uses
your computer to send spam to others or tries to steal
passwords or other typed information from your computer.
There’s a new malware threat that’s making the rounds that
focuses on something different, however: its goal is to steal
your pictures.
At first that might not seem as bad as some other
malware variants, but stop and think for a moment about
what pictures are on your computer. Have you ever
scanned a copy of your birth certificate, Social Security card,
driver’s license or other vital records to ensure you have a
backup of the information in case of fire or theft? What
about your tax returns? Do you have any pictures that
you’d rather no one else was able to see, either because
they’re embarrassing or intimate? What about your family
photos or pictures of your children…would you feel
comfortable with others having access to all of your private
family pictures to do with as they wish?
The malware, identified as Pixsteal-A-Trojan, operates by
scanning your files for image extensions such as .jpg and
.jpeg as well as .dmp memory dump files created when
programs crash. Any files found that meet the malware’s
criteria are uploaded to a remote server where they can be
66
Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
sorted through for personal information, incriminating
photographs or pictures that can be sold to websites. It’s not
necessarily a new idea since there have been similar
malware programs written to steal design files created by
computer-aided drafting software, but those programs were
aimed more at industrial espionage than mining data from
the public at large.
Similar programs could also become a threat on mobile
devices. Researchers have already produced an app that
takes pictures using a smartphone’s camera every 2
seconds, turning off the shutter sound and reducing image
resolution to preserve battery life and preventing the app’s
actions from being discovered right away. If a mobile
malware similar to Pixsteal incorporated a feature like this,
then it would not only be able to steal pictures from a phone
or tablet but could also be used by thieves to determine
where potential victims lived and when they were away
from home.
There are a few different ways that you can become
infected with Pixsteal malware. Untrustworthy websites can
trick you into downloading the malware by claiming that
it’s something else, or links posted by spambots, on forums
or other websites can lead to the malware installer. If you
become infected with other forms of malware, they may
download or install the program without your knowledge
as well. This latter form of infection can be especially
troublesome since you’ll have to deal with the effects of the
original malware in addition to Pixsteal.
Given the potential harm that could be done by others
getting a hold of your private pictures, it’s more important
than ever to make sure that you have up-to-date antivirus
and antimalware software installed on your computer and
mobile devices. Even more important is making sure that
your antivirus and antimalware software is set up to scan
your computer or mobile devices on a regular basis: you

Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead!
By Mary L. Cavaioli, M.S., NBCT
If you currently have a child in school, you may have heard
the term S.T.E.M. This refers to the subject areas of Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math. So what does the new term,
S.T.E.A.M. mean??? The Arts have been added as a key
component to the education of the sciences.
There is a movement in education to continue to supports arts
education in order to strengthen the core academic areas of
science and math. Why?? Because the Arts provide a creative
approach to solving problems. Design and innovation in product
creation are essential to marketing and selling of products! The
Rhode Island School of Design has taken a lead in adding art
and design to the original STEM initiative. The belief that
true innovation comes when the ideas of the scientist/
technologist are combined with those of the artist/designer. The
art component fosters the flexible thinking, risk-taking and
creative problem solving necessary to solve the complex
problems of today’s world! When should we be encouraging our
youth to begin this process? As early as possible, especially in
the elementary years when the building blocks of learning
are developed.
The objectives of the STEAM
movement are:
• Transform research policy to place art and design at the center
of S.T.E.A.M
• Encourage integration of art and design in K-20 education
• Influence employers to hire artists and designers to drive
innovation
Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici from Oregon, in a hearing
on STEM education said, “A scientific mind needs a creative eye.”
Many of our country’s performing arts schools lead the nation in
test scores and creative innovation. Teachers and parents play an
important role in supporting this passion for the arts. Please utilize
the arts opportunities we have in our county and state. Summer
is close at hand and giving your child an opportunity to participate
in the arts will enhance their learning in so many ways!
The educational success of our children depends on creating
a society that is both literate and imaginative, both skilled
and creative. ◆

Are You Ready For An Electric Car?
By Jay Ghanem
So, what is all the buzz about? Electric cars can be inexpensive
to run, quiet to operate, but they do tend to cost more, do require
a higher commitment, and if you need to go on a long trip, what
do you do? Which car to buy? Is it worth the investment? How
about the maintenance?
These are questions that we tend to hear often from consumers
who are wondering whether going “green” at this time is worth
the investment.
First questions to ask yourself would be: do you drive less
than 75 miles a day, or or do you stay local (due to lack of power
sources- plug in electric stations)? Do you have a parking spot
where you can install a 110-volt electrical outlet or, or a dedicated
240-volt EV charging station? Do you mind plugging your car in
for few hours at night to recharge the battery?
Other questions that may arise are: What style electric cars are
available? What terrain and climate are best for electric cars?
Lucky for us, we are living in beautiful, flat South Florida. Does
your income allow for only one vehicle for the entire household?
Will an EV's somewhat limited range work for all your travel or
large family needs? Most EVs are sedans. Future designs are in
the works for SUVs.
Purchasing a car can be a sound financial investment, but it is
also an emotional commitment. So, be ready to do a bit of
research and check out the new cars out in the market that are
competing for your attention, mainly: Tesla, Fisker, BMW, Fiat,
Mitsubishi, Nissan Leaf, Chevy volt and the Fords.
We have come a long way and are continuing to reduce our
carbon foot print on the environment. The smart shopper does
the purchase calculus based on affordability and practical range,
as well as pure fuel-efficiency. Happy Shopping! ◆

Unfinished Business
By Reverend Jack Noble
Because of some fairly significant changes that are about to
take place for me personally, I have been contemplating the idea
of “unfinished business.” It’s something, I suppose, with which
we all have to deal. I heard, recently, about a man, a lawyer in
fact, who died and whose personal business was an absolute
mess. It took months for his family to finally get everything in
order. Even now, after more than a year, there still remains some
suspicion that the full-extent of his dealings were yet to be
discovered. Not to imply that there was anything nefarious
about this, it’s just that his life and businesses were inordinately
complex. His family has been to see me more than once and they
say over and over, “there are just so many loose ends.”
I suppose that for more than a few us there may be some
“loose ends” in our lives — things that remain undone. We all
live such busy and hectic lives. There was an old saying my
mother used to repeat: “a man’s work is from sun to sun, a
woman’s work is never done.” I suspect that that is true to some
extent for all of us, male or female, old or young.
Everyday when I turn out the light in my office, close the door
and head for home there is always something left over for
tomorrow, one more visit that needs to be made, one more person
I need to call, one more article to be written, one more thank you
to be said.
I have a friend who keeps a list of
things he intends to do, everyday he
makes a new list. I asked him if he ever
completes the list. No, he says. Then he adds “but it feels so
good as I cross stuff out, it gives me such a sense of satisfaction.”
As I said, I imagine for all of us there remains some unfinished
business, some loose ends. I belong to a support group that uses
the expression of “cleaning up the past,” or “keeping our side of
the street clean.” By that we mean that we try to not have quite
so much unfinished business. In that group we are encouraged
to take an inventory at the end of the day and if we have made a
mistake, or spoken with haste, or offended someone, try to get it
cleared up as soon as possible — the next morning perhaps. But
we are also encouraged to look at the good that has been
accomplished in and through us and be grateful for that.
I wonder, do you have any loose ends or unfinished business
to complete?
Lest we think, however, that loose ends, of necessity, involve
only so much negative energy, there is something positively
energizing about the things that are incomplete, even the amends
that need to be made. As I see it, the unfinished business in our
lives always offers us the chance to be, or to do, or to accomplish
something new, something different. ◆
Al ’s Co r n e r
Made in America
By Al Siefert
Several months ago, I wrote about how most of our electrical
products were being imported from around the world, primarily
from China and Mexico. This seems to be changing, and the “Made
in America” label is gaining appeal.
Even through the recession the World Bank figures showed the U.S.
is the world leader in manufacturing with 18.2% of the market and
China with 17.6%. The good news is that US manufacturers employ
9% of the workforce and have added 500,000 jobs in the past 33 months.
There are many reasons to believe that there is going to be a
resurgence of manufacturing in the US. The Chinese workers are
beginning to demand higher wages and better working conditions.
As this happens, their manufacturing cost will go up. The cost of
shipping is also on the rise due to higher fuel cost.
Companies like General Electric are investing $800 million to
rejuvenate its aging Appliance Park manufacturing campus in
Louisville KY. They are now producing high-efficiency water heaters
and high-end refrigerators. This year they plan to develop stainless
steel dishwashers and frontloading washers and dryers. In
December 2012, Apple announced a $100 million initiative to bring
production of some of its Mac parts back to the United States from
China. Leviton, a producer of electrical products, is also bringing
back some of their production jobs back from China.

Lighthouse Point Magazine | www.lhpmag.com
Another factor that is bringing down the
cost of American manufacturing is the
falling value of the dollar globally and the rise of overseas currencies.
By 2015 it is predicted that US wages for production will drop to 67%
of German payroll cost. The French payroll cost is expected to rise
40% over US wages and the labor costs in Italy are expected to be
80% higher than the US. This in turn raises the cost of buying foreign
made products and should help our exporting capabilities.
The Boston Consulting Group did a manufacturing-sector
analysis and they see a good possibility of Alabama, South Carolina
and Tennessee as being the next regions for new manufacturing, both
domestically and internationally. These areas can provide low cost
production sites and a trainable workforce. They see a possibility of
creating two million to three million jobs by 2020. They are also
predicting that American manufacturing will boost their export
business by at least $65 billion annually within the next five years.
This article was very positive. I hope that they are correct. ◆
