RANDOM THOUGHTS AND OBSERVATIONS EVERYBODY’S FEARS ANSWERED: Many had feared there would be heavy traffic congestion with the advent of the Harbourside Place at U. S. Highway One & Indiantown Road. The inevitable traffic tie-up occurred Friday afternoon, January 16. Your Roving Reporter was roving in the vicinity of Harbourside Place about 2:00 pm. We had decided to take U. S. One to reach Fisherman’s Wharf on Indiantown Road. Many times we take Alt. A1A to Indiantown Road, then go east to this plaza as there are no draw bridges to contend with. But, from our office, it is shorter to go via U. S. One, if the drawbridge is not up and no trains are blocking crossings. The Indiantown Road Bridge was stalled in the up position. Traffic was tied up from the bridge east to A1A and beyond. Traffic was backed up both north and south on U. S. One for miles. To further complicate things, heavy traffic was exiting from both Harbourside and The Shoppes at Jupiter (opposite corner). Additionally, a fire truck with lights flashing and siren blaring, was attempting to turn into Harbourside. Chaotic! There was a 30-minute wait trying to get to our destination. We finally broke from the stalled traffic, circled around to the U.S. One Bridge only to find it was open. Very frustrating! When the Indiantown Road Bridge closed and we finally arrived at our destination, our appointment had gone. Commerce stalled again! This kind of disruption will not occur every day, but when it does it is not only exasperating, but also very dangerous. Trains and drawbridges are constantly disrupting business activity daily. We’re hopeful something can be done to schedule bridge openings less frequently and that All Aboard Florida does not get approved, so that business may continue without heavy delays. It’s vital! The Beacon inadvertently identified the name of a championship in an article about Boston Chowda last month. The award title is The Boston Chowda Fest. Also, in the same article the wrong dates pertaining to the company’s participation in area Green Markets were published. Boston Chowda is featured at the Palm Beach Gardens market Sunday and West Palm Beach market Saturday. A Consumer We regret the error. OOPS!

JMC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) John Couris told The Beacon, This Development Boasts State-of-the-art Birthing Suites, an Orthopedic Unit and 44 New Patient Rooms JUPITER -- The grand opening January 25 of the new $46 Million Florence DeGeorge Pavilion at Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) not only celebrated the completion of this state-of-the art wing, but a health and wellness fair was also held in conjunction with the event. Area residents streamed into the new 85,000-square-foot facility on the JMC campus, 1210 S. Old Dixie Highway, by the hundreds to tour the DeGeorge Children’s and Women’s obstetric unit, the Anderson Family Orthopedic and Spine Center and 44 band new patient rooms plus a new modern cafeteria. The DeGeorge Obstetric unit which provides eight birthing suites, 14 post-partum rooms and two c-section operating units offers the most modern and up to date facilities of any hospital in this area. The addition will boost the Medical Center’s obstetrics capacity from the current 1,200 births annually to 2,000. The existing birthing suites will be converted to patient rooms. Children’s and Women’s Healthcare Services will also incorporate the hospital’s existing pediatric therapy services for children ages newborn to 17. Through this program, speech/language pathologists, and occupational and physical therapists The new birthing suites are state-of-the-art and spacious. “We are very excited about the new wing and all that it provides local residents. There is nothing like this new pavilion anywhere in the area and it is totally funded and supported by the community. This second phase of the Medical Center’s three-phase expansion plan is another example of fulfilling our commitment to provide world-class healthcare to the residents of Northern Palm Beach County and beyond.” Couris pointed out that fundraising efforts by the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation made the new wing possible. He explained that it is important for local residents to understand that everything provided by the medical center comes from community support and major pledges.

THE PATIENCE OF GRANDPA A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3-year-old grandson. It’s obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for candy in the candy aisle, cookies in the cookie aisle and for fruit, cereal and soda in the other aisles. Meanwhile, Grandpa is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice, “Easy William, we won’t be long . . . easy, boy.” Another outburst and she hears the grandpa calmly say: “It’s okay, William, just a couple more minutes and we’ll be out of here. Hang in there, boy” At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart and Grandpa says again in a controlled voice, “William, William, relax buddy, don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five minutes, stay cool, William.” Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car.

There have been many award-winning productions here and many Carbonell Awards received, which were well earned, and we expect more (see the listing below). It is our belief that any production produced locally and directed by local theater staff is always better. Such is the case of The Wiz, the rock gospel and soul musical based on the classic, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz:”. The Maltz Jupiter Theatre has earned 14 nominations for the 39th annual Carbonell Awards, South Florida’s equivalent of the Tony Awards®. The Theatre garnered the most nominations of any of the nominated organizations in Palm Beach County. By show, the Theatre earned nine nominations for The King and I and five for The Foreigner. Celebrating the best shows and performances in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, Carbonell nominations encompass the entire length of South Florida. “We are honored and grateful that we are being recognized for two of the shows in our eclectic spectrum of work – including a classic, re-envisioned musical (The King and I) and a comedy (The Foreigner),” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic The musical was directed by the Theatre’s own producing artistic director, Andrew Kato.

But there could be a surprise or two for you in the numbers below. Nearly 1 in 10. That’s how many people have diabetes in the United States:. Fortunately, the number of new diabetes cases fell an average of 5.4 percent between 2008 and 2012. Researchers think some of this success is due to overall declines in obesity rates. Double trouble. Some racial and ethnic groups, though, are still seeing a rise in diabetes rates. Native Americans have twice the rate of diabetes as non-Hispanic whites. Hispanics and non-Hispanic blacks don’t fare much better. Perhaps. most humbling of all? Researchers predict that half of black women and Hispanic men and women will develop type 2 diabetes during their lifetime. Could you be one of the 8.1 million Americans who has diabetes but doesn’t know it? Diabetes may sneak up on you in the form of prediabetes. It causes high blood sugar and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. That’s when your body doesn’t use the hormone insulin the right way. Lifestyle changes that increase activity and take off extra weight can often prevent prediabetes from becoming full-blown diabetes. In fact, the National Diabetes Prevention Program has cut people’s risk of type 2 diabetes in half with diet and exercise. Clearly, lifestyle changes can make a huge difference. They can help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. That’s why a U.S. task force now recommends that every American over age 45 be screened for both prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. 176 billion. That’s how much money people spent on diabetes medical care in 2012. Those with diabetes, on average, spend more than twice that of people without the condition. According to the CDC, diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2010. Together, let’s make sure this statistic doesn’t include you. See your doctor to be screened for diabetes, especially if you are obese, have a family history of diabetes, or are over age 45. Don’t waste any time getting to your doctor if you have symptoms of diabetes. These may include: Needing to urinate often, Extreme thirst. Feeling very hungry even after eating, Feeling very tired, Blurred visio OR Cuts or bruises that heal slowly If you don’t manage diabetes well, you’re at risk for serious complications. These can range from skin infections and nerve damage to vision loss and kidney disease—and, yes, even death.

What was she thinking? She only gained double the space from the old store on Cypress Drive. And, she will have to do more work chicing shacks all over town. But, that’s OK, her handy husband (aka Rob Williamson) is going to help out. Page 37 customers can get 10 percent off on their purchase. Oh, and tiaras are on sale here, too. Karen (the “Chicorator”) says “the new items will have a raw, unclaimed look to them, but all are quality wood and affordable.” Plus, the new items are made in the good ole USA. Also, there will be more repurposing of furniture at the new location. “We can take an old piece that may look like it is ready for the junk pile and make it look attractive and useful again,” Karen said. A lot of that could be accomplished with Robs’s artistic and “handy” skills. “He might take an old egg crate and turn it into a really nice coffee table,” so says the chicly blond lady. “We’re actually helping the environment by repurposing furniture,” she concluded. So, now, The Good Stuff is located at 129 Center Street, across from the Ale House, and a little to the east. Actually, it’s just a few yards west of Ralph’s Stand Up Bar.

Perhaps, the key to the book is in following the events of these families that proves to be interesting and fully documented. Gillian uses a unique twist in the account by telling her story through many, many letters members of these families had written. Fortunately, she was able to gather copies of the letters in which a dramatic story unfolds and one begins to realize it is factual. “You couldn’t make these stories up,” she said. Another unique factor of the book is that every chapter begins with a poem that relates to the incidents in that chapter. Some are poems by famous poets, while others are written by Gillian. The first chapter is Gillian’s own poem about “My England.” There is contrast in Chapter two: The poem leading off is actually the lyrics to “Moon River,” by Johnny Mercer and sung by Andy Williams. Both, as do all the others, instill a feeling of the times and scenes the reader is about to encounter. Still another clever adaptation is the title. “It’s actually one of the songs well known by the Celtic group Clannan,” Gillian said. “The Poison Glen” seemed appropriate for the novels content.” Gillian told The Beacon that the book is already in its second printing and she only completed it last December. “It’s going well,” she said, “and I’m very pleased that people find it interesting.” It is available through Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Nobel, Scrib and most of the e-books.

The document is to be distributed as part of a 40th anniversary celebration in 2016. The Auxiliary began serving this community in 1976 when, what is now an ever expanding Jupiter Medical Center, began as a small medical facility. Jupiter Hospital opened its doors three years later in 1979. The hospital is and always has been supported by the community through donations and major gifts, which are very important to help the hospital provide the necessary services expected. This is the new Gift Shop The emphasis on the need in the main lobby of the for communtiy support was hospital. All proceeds go reiterated by John Couris, directly to JMC. JMC Chief Executive Officer, January 24 at the grand opening of the new De George Pavilion, the latest additon at the community hospital. The Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary exists to assist in these services. A secondary role is to help raise funds for the hospital, according to the Director of Volunteer Services, Dominique Kruisland. Ms. Kruisland told The Beacon, “the Auxiliary was actually in place before the small facility was opened. It was formed under the auspices of the Women’s Club of Jupiter and Tequesta, and was founded in June of 1976 with 137 members. Today, nearly 40 years later, the organization has more than 600 member volunteers, including college and high school studemts.” The Auxiliary continues to play a major role in providing services to the hospital. Dominique said, “Funds raised for the hospital are solely through sales of merchandise from the Jupiter Medical Center Thrift Shop on Center Street and the hospital Gift Shop in the hospital’s main entrance lobby.” She continued, “That is why it is so important for local residents to understand that The Auxiliary provides this the purchases they make at the Thrift Shop and the Gift Shop service to the community: benefit the community hospital. Motor Aid fleet. Any funds raised go directly to Jupiter Medical Center.” Ms. Kruisland pointed out that more than $12 million has been raised in the 40 years the Auxiliary has been functioning. “The biggest percentage of these funds come from the Thrift Shop,” she advised. The Gift Shop is fairly new and Dominique said, “It has turned out to be a marvelous project.” Dee Perez, president of the Auxiliary, heads a committee responsible for drafting a history of the organization. When completed, many contributions by the Auxiliary will be noted. The president pointed out, “A recent contribution of $100,000 This is a recent provided a Portable Ultra Violet Light Disinfection contribution by the Auxiliary Robot, which will kill all - a Portable Ultra Violet existing germs where it is Light Disinfection Robot - a used.” $100,000 gift. Another significant gift of $400,000 from the Auxiliary will fund the remodeling of the south entrance lobby. The entrance will remain open during the renovation, Ms. Perez said. There have been numerous contributions by the Auxiliary over the years, such as the $2 million that allowed for the Emergency Room expansion in 2007. Also, a recent gift of $50,000 helped to upgrade and expand the hospital Chapel, and another $50,000 was contributed for the creation of an Internet Cafe on the second floor of the new Raso Education Center. Without the funds derived from the Thrift Shop and Gift Shop, the Auxiliary could not do the things that we do,” Ms.Perez concluded. As part of the services the Auxiliary provides the community, the three vans that make up the Motor Aid fleet are donated and maintained by this organization. Still another of the many community services the Auxiliary funds is the Teenage Volunteer Scholarship, which was implemented in 2008. The funds raised for this go directly to the student volunteer who qualifies as a prospect for medical field studies. Much of the history being prepared for the 40th anniversary has already been drafted.

The group experimented with different juices; their ultimate goal was to discover the best tasting juices possible. As the equipment got bigger, the recipes expanded and the word got out, more people wanted to join this unusual coop that had developed for the purpose of becoming healthier. As a result, Jon Sullivan eventually established The Modern Juice Company and it opened in Fisherman’s Wharf (287 E. Indiantown Road) here on December 16. Sullivan said he has been pleased with the reception so far. Eager customers await their smoothie or bowl at The Modern Juice Company in Fisherman’s Wharf, Jupiter. Sullivan explained: “I was a chef and noticed I was getting heavier and heavier. I decided to change my habits and began making fresh juices at home. Friends found out and I soon began to create nutritious juice blends for them. Eventually, a number of us got together and began experimenting with juice combinations. We began working out and adopted a healthier lifestyle and better eating habits.” Not long after that, the idea for The Modern Juice Company arose. A storefront was opened and the concept became quite popular rather rapidly as more and more people discovered this new juice bar in Fisherman’s Wharf. Sullivan said the juices are all cold pressed or centrifugal. No sugar is used and everything is made to order. The company offers some unusual bowls and smoothies.

One bowl this reporter really liked is the El Tradicional which features a blend of strawberry, apple and acai, then topped with fruit. The list of delicious combinations goes on and on. The company uses Garden of Life protein in the smoothies, but upon request the staff will use Modern Juice Company owner protein in anything the customer orders.

I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to be involved in music. Later, I became a drummer and at age 15 I had a chance to play with a rock band at a New Year’s Eve Party. I was fascinated because the party was held at a Burlesque house, I became a professional musician that night because I got paid for the gig, and I never looked back.” Over the next few years Stollman played with many bands, but was stuck on the blues. He wanted to align himself with somebody well respected in that genre. “I met Debbie Davies, a veteran blues guitarist and protege of Matt Collins, a famous blues guitarist. She really schooled me on the blues, and I’ve been doing blues ever since.” Stollman performed in the lounges in Atlantic City, New Jersey for 10 years. He said those gigs came about as the result of a trip to Mexico. I met Frank Sinatra’s bodyguard at the pool one day and he invited me to a Sinatra concert at the Golden Nugget. I went and wound up sitting backstage with Sinatra’s wife to watch the show. It was unbelievable.” He got the engagements in Atlantic City, he said, after he was introduced to some of Sinatra’s friends and they discovered he could sing. Page 49 A few years ago, Stollman met Johnny Winters through a friend of his who was a bass guitar player. He wound up becoming the lead vocalist for Winters. “He was my mentor,” Stollman said, “and I learned a lot from him.” Winters died July 16, 2014. The Winters band was still together and booked many places. Stollman toured with them until last December. The Jay Stollman Band was formed not long after Winters death and the leader eventually moved to this area. Stollman will be performing at Maxi’s Lineup every Monday night during February. He is booked at RJ’s Native Sun Cafe (BBQ) Here, Jay Stollman plays that Friday, March 13 and the melodica 21st, as well as April 4. He will be playing regular gigs at Guanabanas and expects to land other venus locally. Listening to the Stollman band is fascinating. They are all excellent musicians. In fact, many of the gigs here feature Scott Spray. bass player from the Johnny Winters Band, Stollman said. Sometimes, the band consists of a trio, sometimes five pieces. Their playlist is so diverse it includes rock, soul, funk, country, old standards, bluegrass and, of course, the blues. Stollman said “We do just about any kind of music except rap.” Any song they play always has that blues twist. Stollman’s voice is somewhat raspy, which is perfect for the blues. Besides singing, Stollman plays multiple instruments: drums, keyboard, harmonica, guitar and melodica. Many of his performances find him playing the melodica, which is a wind instrument with a small keyboard controlling a row of reeds, and a mouthpiece at one end. It is a perfect blues instrument. Jay said, “I really feel my blues music, and I can feel the people around me. The Jay Stollman can feel the crowd pulse is awesome. I find it around him as he wails the blues. very rewarding to help people escape. Because of that trait, a Stollman concert becomes inspiring. Stollman is a songwriter, too. He has been writing music for TV for 20 years. His music has been featured on the Today Show, Sex and the City, Saturday Night Live and others. He is also an actor and does voice-overs. Presently, he is the voice of Grey Goose vodka. His great love, however, is playing the blues. For bookings, go to his website: www.jaystollman.com.
