WEST PALM BEACH — Four new business majors and two significant construction projects will lead Northwood University into its 31st year of providing entrepreneurial education to aspiring students from across the globe. “We’re going to be in a growth mode here for the next couple of years,” said Tom Duncan, campus president of the private, nonprofit school in West Palm Beach. “Like any business, you should always have a product in the pipeline.” Popping out of the product pipeline in 2014 will be a series of specialized See Page 18 for study areas, including fashmarketing and merchanAuto Show story ion dising, franchising manageNORTHWOOD UNIVERSITY FACTS: BACKGROUND: Northwood is a private university with campuses also in Midland, Mich. and Cedar Hill, Texas.

Stauffer and Turner turned conventional college education on its end with their vision of an institute that would share the American ideals of enterprise and entrepreneurship with the world. The 100-acre Florida campus opened in 1984 amid slash pines, saw palmettos and other native flora and fauna north of Okeechobee Boulevard on Military Trail. Its location has become less remote throughout the decades and is poised to house a 10th building and a second entrance. The new building will provide a state-of-theart classroom, meeting space and a multifunction area that can be used by the public.

Wellington music store voted No. 1 in nation It may not be on the same level as winning an Oscar, but to Wellington residents Steve & Donna Willey, it comes awfully close. The Willey’s music store, Village Music Wellington, has just been recognized as “Best New Music Dealer in the U.S.” by retail music industry magazine The Music & Sound Retailer. The Willeys accepted the award Friday, Jan. 24 at the magazine’s 28th Annual Music & Sound Awards held during the 2014 National Association of Music Merchants trade show in Anaheim, Calif. “Winning this award is an amazing honor,” said Steve Willey. “To be recognized alongside companies like Fender, Taylor and Yamaha is an incredible commendation. This will move our business forward in so many ways, including opening doors to becoming dealers of brands which would previously have been much more difficult to attain.” Since 1986, The Music & Sound Retailer has awarded what some have called the Oscars of the music products industry. The Music & Sound Awards are the highest honor a manufacturer or dealer within the music industry can receive. Village Music Wellington was one of four stores throughout the country nominated in the single-store category. “This proves to us that following your dreams and working hard at what you love to do will bring success,” said Donna. “We are profoundly grateful to this community for their trust in us and support of our business.” Village Music Wellington opened in late 2012, and has since developed a music lesson program consisting of more than 200 students, as well as a flourishing retail business.

Entertainment, Sport & Promotion Management – a take on ESPN – also is gaining lots of interest as a new offering, as are more traditional fields such as hospitality management and international business. However, the university’s signature major is automotive marketing and management. “Northwood has always had an automotive piece because of its Michigan roots,” Duncan said. “It’s just part of the culture.

First, you want to find the home that perfectly meets your needs and desires, and secondly, you want to purchase this home for the lowest possible price. When you analyze those successful home buyers who have been able to purchase the home they want for thousands of dollars below a seller’s asking price, some common denominators emerge. While the negotiating skills of your agent are important, there are three additional key factors that must come into play long before you ever submit an offer. This topic has been the subject of extensive analysis by industry experts and a summary of their findings and specific step-by-step purchase plan for home buyers can be found in a new special report called “Homebuyers: How to Save Thousands of Dollars When You Buy.” This free report outlines the psychology of how a seller sets their asking price and gives you 3 simple steps to follow before you even set foot in a seller’s home, which could help you successfully slash thousands of dollars off the price of the home you want. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call 1-800-887-4742 and enter 3126 when prompted. You can call anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Most of the news was positive, but the thing that happened at the beginning of the physical bothered me the most – the evil nurse asked me to step on the scale. I knew I had put on a few pounds, but when I stepped on that scale it just kept going and going and going. The first words out of my mouth were, “Your scale must be broken.” With a smile on her face, the nurse replied, “No, it isn’t.” I asked if she was sure and she told me she checks the scale every day to make sure it gives an accurate read. I had no other choice but to accept the scale’s reading – and reality. Once I started to think about it, I recalled that most of my clothes were beginning to feel tight. Actually, very tight. And I had gone from belt hole No. 3 to belt hole No. 1 on my favorite belt. I’m somewhat ashamed to admit this, but for the first time in my life, I was standing over a scale that went right past the 200 pound mark. I did more than one double take when the scale settled comfortably at an even 201. My initial reaction was to destroy the scale, but I knew that would only be shooting the messenger. That’s when I realized it wasn’t the scale’s fault. It was all my fault. After this very stressful and disappointing weigh in, it was time to take my – already high – blood pressure. By now, I was terrified by what my blood pressure might show, but to my great relief the readings were all normal. Now I was feeling a bit confident, so I asked the nurse if she could weigh me again. She did. Two-oh-one. Again. Oh well, the rest of the physical went fine, despite being overweight. Even before I left the doctor’s office, I decided to start a diet. And true to my word, I did. Thanks to eating healthy and walking three miles a day, I’m proud to say that in just two short months I lost 21 pounds. My knees and every other part of my body felt like I was a teenager all over again. I was able to go back to my belt’s third hole. I vowed I would never weigh that much again. That’s when the holidays arrived. Food was everywhere. There was no escape. Even at my favorite breakfast place they offered me cookies before I had a chance to order breakfast. Admittedly, I have a few weaknesses, and one of them is the inability to walk away from free food. I live by the motto, “If it’s free, it’s for me.” Soon, I could feel the weight starting to come back. It seems everyone was telling me, “Eat, eat, eat. It’s the holidays, worry about the weight later.” So, of course I listened. Not wanting to face reality, I didn’t get back on a scale until mid-January, but it turned out that the results weren’t as bad as I had feared – I put on nine pounds. Now I’m working on losing my newly-gained weight, so do me one favor. If you happen to see me during my three-mile daily walk, please don’t offer me any food. Thanking you in advance.

Both the actress, who gained weight and made herself strikingly ungainly for the role, and director-writer Ronald Krauss clearly put their all into this film. Krauss went so far as to spend a year at a shelter for pregnant homeless teens; this was a passion project. But passion isn’t always enough. “Gimme Shelter” suffers from stilted dialogue, less than crackling storytelling and vaguely drawn characters. Yes, there are moving moments that will have you shedding a tear. But at times it has all the narrative sophistication and subtlety of a public service ad (and let’s face it, those can make you cry, too). First things first: The title has nothing to do with the Rolling Stones. It refers quite literally to the shelter for homeless, pregnant teens that takes in 16-yearold Apple (Hudgens). Though the film is said to be based on a real story, Hudgens’ character is actually an amalgam of several young women. The shelter is real, as is its admirable founder, Kathy DiFiore, played by Ann Dowd in one of the film’s more appealing and grounded performances. Hudgens appears in virtually every frame, and she does an impressive job creating yet more distance from her Disney persona, a process she began in earnest with “Spring Breakers.” Those who remember her as the perkily perfect Gabriella in “High School Musical” will truly be shocked at the first sight of her: Standing at a bathroom mirror and chopping off her mangy hair, revealing blotchy skin, dirt-filled fingernails, a nose and lip ring. Apple is in a living hell, sharing a home with her drugaddicted, abusive mother (Rosario Dawson, in an effectively frightening, go-for-broke performance). Desperate to escape, she makes it by bus to the suburban New Jersey McMansion where her biological father (Brendan Fraser), whom she’s never known – he got her mother pregnant as a teenager – lives with his prim wife and two children. They aren’t thrilled at first to see her. Hudgens’ best work here is physical. She eats voraciously, like an animal, and exudes a mix of anger, sadness and deep discomfort. Her spoken lines are less effective, and that’s partly due to a script often filled with clichés. It soon emerges that Apple is pregnant. The film spends no time identifying the father; it’s all about Apple’s road ahead. And for her father and his wife, that road does not include a baby. They urge her to have an abortion. Heck, they make the appointment. At the clinic, an unsympathetic nurse (it’s not hard to detect this film’s anti-abortion message) tells her to hurry up; she’s keeping the doctor waiting. Apple takes a look at her ultrasound photo, decides she can’t go through with it, and bolts. Her luck turns when an accident lands her in the hospital. There, she meets a chaplain (James Earl Jones) who tries to melt her hostile reserve, get her some religion, and get her to a shelter. Though life for Apple quickly gets better at the shelter – Hudgens cleans up fast, maybe too fast – there’s little dramatic tension in the last act of the film, save two scenes featuring her crazed yet somehow sympathetic mother. The ending feels unrealistic, at least in a long-term sense, but we won’t reveal it here. As for Hudgens, she could have been better served by a more subtly shaded script. In all, though, it’s a promising step in her career. 201 S.W. 5th Ave., Ft.

Group fitness has been a major pillar in the gym industry for decades, and over the years trends have shaped the direction of West Palm’s Ultima Fitness Downtown’s 20 years of success. Step rose to fame in the early 90s followed by Tae-Bo in the latter half of that decade. Zumba took the world by storm in the early 2000s and still continues to attract a cult-like following. What’s the latest trend for group fitness? “Barre Physique is the newest craze,” says Ultima’s Group Fitness Director Patti Wilmoth. Barre Physique is a ballet barre-inspired class that incorporates elements of dance, yoga and Pilates in a cardio strength format. According to Wilmoth, this workout defines, tones and lengthens your muscles in an energetic and invigorating total body workout that will leave you feeling strong, centered and balanced. “If you strive for long, lean muscle tone rather than a more compact look, this is the program for you,” adds Wilmoth. Located in downtown West Palm Beach, Ultima Fitness Downtown added Barre Physique classes in early January. “The response has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Business and Marketing Director Kelly Colbath. “Ultima’s Barre classes are consistently packed. It’s wild to see how fast the newest trend catches on,” says Colbath. Sure, you can jump into a Barre class because it’s what all your friends are doing. Or maybe it’s because you heard Madonna and Kelly Ripa swear by it. Understandably, these reasons may drive you to see what the craze is all about, but its Barre Physique’s wealth of benefits that will get you hooked. First things first: Barre class requires no experience. The difficulty level of class is all up to the participant. Exercises and movements have modifications for every fitness level and modifications do not affect others in the class, which helps maintain a non-competitive environment. Instructors have the ability to tailor the exercises based on individual skill and fitness levels, whether you’re starting your fitness journey for the first time or you just danced on stage at the “Nutcracker.” One’s flexibility seems to diminish as the years pass. Not only is Barre great for muscle development, it enhances range of motion, too. Flexibility and strength training parallel each other in this fun, easy-tofollow workout improving posture and reducing joint pain. Yes, the class is built for anyone. Yes, the program will make you stronger and more flexible. Is this why this latest trend has caught on so quickly? Both are great benefits, but in addition, Barre will help you lose inches. And fast. By targeting major muscle groups, caloric burn is at a high. Sure, you may be sore following the first few classes, but you’ll notice visible results quickly. Taking Barre Physique consistently will allow your body to build more muscle while improving your metabolic rate. The combination of muscle lengthening movements and a great strength workout will leave you feeling and looking longer and leaner. Interested in giving the Barre Physique workout a try? Call Ultima Fitness Downtown at 659-1724 and ask for Kelly Colbath for your free, no-obligation 7-day trial.

February – the month known for romance – is here and I can’t help but look forward to all the yummy, delicious treats and adventurous surprises that are sure to be lavished on me. However, I’d like to go on record as proposing that Valentine’s Day be changed to Valentine’s Month – after all, aren’t us gals worth an entire month of attention? While it may take some time for that idea to catch on, let me offer up a few cupid-kissing, hands-holding, sipping and strolling ideas that are sure to leave your special someone thoroughly impressed. I like to refer to these ideas as “Falling in Love with Downtown West Palm Beach.” Oftentimes, guys send their special someone off for a relaxing day at the spa. But why not turn up the romance meter a bit? In your own private couples suite, you can both enjoy a onehour Swedish massage complete with rose petals, chocolate, wine and beer. It’s the “Couples Quencher Package” presented by the folks at Sanctuary Salon & Spa at 120 S. Dixie Hwy. Be sure to make your reservations early by calling 721-9648. If you both share a love for romantic movies, a date night at Screen On The Green is the ticket – and as luck would have it, Screen On The Green falls right smack on Valentine’s Day!

Wellington’s municipal election is on March 11, and I encourage everyone to vote! This is your greatest opportunity to help steer Wellington in the direction you prefer.

I encourage you to attend community forums to see the candidates discuss these issues. Consider carefully who you feel will make the best decisions on behalf of Wellington’s future. Remember: your voice makes the biggest impact when you vote. I look forward to seeing you all out and about enjoying February’s events. Until next month! Allergy Issues? Pets? Dust?

Fire Capt. Craig Moreau and his wife were driving home after a trip to Austin when they came upon an 18-wheeler on fire. Moreau and the trucker, whose brake problems started the fire, tried using a small extinguisher. Moreau says he thought the fire was out, but then noticed the blaze had flared up after crawling under the truck to check. The firefighter then asked the driver what he was hauling. When he learned it was beer, he had his solution. Both men began shaking and spraying cans of beer on the blaze, and the fire went out. No injuries were reported. Photos of a utensil-wielding de Blasio spread across Twitter and prompted mock outrage, some even calling for his impeachment. It was reminiscent of a “Seinfeld” episode in which characters make a stir by eating a candy bar with flatware. De Blasio, who prides himself on his Italian-American heritage, later explained that he eats pizza the way they do in Italy. He starts with a knife and fork, then uses his hands. Woman nds snake in couch brought home from curb Four kittens pull ‘break-in’ at upstate NY prison Mayor gets piece of NYC’s mind on pizza etiquette NEW YORK — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio got his pizza with smoked mozzarella, sausage and a dash of scandal. The newly installed mayor unintentionally spiced up a political meeting at a Staten Island pizza joint on Jan. 10 by digging into his slice with a knife and fork. That’s a no-no for many New Yorkers, who believe pizza should be folded and eaten with their hands. FORT ANN, N.Y. — A litter of kittens has found a cozy home in the least cozy of places – a maximum-security prison in upstate New York. The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports four kittens found their way into the basement of the Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Fort Ann a few months ago. That’s near the Vermont border 55 miles northeast of Albany. The family of feral felines has been cared for by inmates and prison staff, including head electrician Bruce Porter. He arrives at work early so he can tend to the cats, which live in a large cage built by an inmate. Another inmate takes care of the cats on weekends when many prison employees are off. Prison officials say they’re hoping to find the kittens homes among the staff. GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A woman who brought home a secondhand couch left on the curb says she ended up finding a snake apparently living under the cushions. Holly Wright tells WZZM-TV that the couch had been in her Grand Rapids bedroom for about two months before the “very lethargic” snake emerged in late December. She says it died before she could get care for the snake. Wright says she isn’t sure where the snake came from, but it may have been there the whole time. She says she thought the couch looked OK when she found it with a sign indicating that it was free for the taking. She says she took off the cushions and cleaned it, but didn’t initially see the snake. He says the chickens have been left periodically from every day to every two weeks. There also are bones or feathers scattered throughout the cemetery. Gabaldon says he doesn’t know if the chickens are part of a religious ceremony, but he called the bizarre practice disgusting and creepy. He says he hopes to put up a gate to keep cars out at night. ordinary folk who have written him about their hardships. He places the calls himself, as evidenced by the message. Iowa man arrested after ght over PB&J sandwiches DES MOINES, Iowa — Police say an Iowa man was arrested after he pulled a knife on his brother during a fight over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Jerome Davis was arrested Jan. 3, after the confrontation with his brother in their Des Moines home. Both men are in their 50s. Davis’ accuser told police he was angry because he believed his brother was eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Davis allegedly made three sandwiches and ate them in their living room, and made another less than an hour later. A police report says the brothers began arguing about laziness and over-eating. Davis allegedly pulled out a folding knife and held it to his brother’s face. Davis was charged with domestic abuse with a weapon. Pope to nuns: Why aren’t you answering the phone? Owner: Dead chickens being left a NM cemetery ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A small Albuquerque cemetery appears to be the victim of some fowl activity: Someone is leaving dead chickens and bird parts near its headstones. Michael Gabaldon, co-owner of Romero Cemetery, says for two years, dead chickens and chicken parts have been dropped off overnight. VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis has made another one of his cold calls to wish a group of nuns in a Spanish convent Happy New Year. Only he got their answering machine, instead. “What are the nuns doing that they can’t answer the phone?” Francis asked in the message he left, the recording of which was obtained by Spain’s El Mundo newspaper and broadcast on Italian media on Jan. 4. “This is Pope Francis. I wanted to offer you greetings for the end of the year. Maybe I’ll try to call again later. May God bless you,” he said. Francis has made a habit out of calling people out of the blue, often checking in with Experience the Di erence 40 Years Makes Floridas Largest Most Complete Bead Shop Learn to Create Your Own Jewelry Over 100 Different Classes $10.00 off a class Not valid on guest teacher or classes that include supplies.

Javon Lusane is a black male born 3-2892. He is 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos. His last known address is Palmetto Drive in West Palm Beach. The suspect is wanted on felony charges of Domestic Battery and Domestic Battery by Strangulation. John Moreira is a white male born 3-2972. He is 5-feet 8-inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has black hair and green eyes. His last known address is Timber Pine Trail in Wellington. The suspect is wanted on a felony charge of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation. Warrants checked on 1-21-14. Remain anonymous (don’t give your name) and you may be eligible for up to $1,000 reward. Aries (March 21 – April 20) Between a rock and a hard place it doesn’t really matter what path you choose. And you could leap right out of this mess if you had to. Consider that option. Starting all over again might be a good idea. Taurus (April 21 – May 21) What we don’t know can’t hurt us; until we wind up living in a lie. Sadly disillusioned, at least you’ve woken up. Whether things work or not will depend upon your willingness to face the truth. Gemini (May 22 – June 21) It takes courage to go through test after test, but that’s the deal right now. Too many changes make you wonder when it’s going to stop. Keep your chin up and get ready for another one. It’s not over yet. Cancer (June 22 – July 23) Unresolved issues always have a way of holding us back. With too many old fires to put out it’s hard to move on. Do your best to repair what got broken along the way. Nothing will change until you decide to make a few amends. Leo (July 24 – Aug. 23) When something isn’t working it’s always best to let it fall apart. You may wonder if you need to stick around long enough to fix this but inside you know that it’ll turn out to be a waste of time. Virgo (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23) You’ve suddenly hit a wall and can’t figure out how to get around it. The last thing you want to do may be exactly what you have to do to get over this hump. That could even include falling in love again. Libra (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23) Someone’s overwhelming need for you is a little over the top. If you feel strangled by all this attention I wouldn’t be surprised. Don’t do anything to feed their obsession. It’s not healthy for either of you. Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22) Don’t even bother to resurrect an old relationship. Whomever you’re trying to reconnect with isn’t up for it. And while you think you can bring back the good old days, maybe the good old days weren’t really all that special. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21) Don’t over inflate the potential in anything right now. What looks good at the moment could fly south any minute. Instead of expanding, consolidate what you have and keep things as simple as possible. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20) Stop fretting over whether or not you’ve said enough or done enough. There’s no way to push the river. Sit back and watch this iron itself out. The less you do the sooner this new project of yours will take off. Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19) Stop kidding yourself. Some sort of change is essential. If you think you can keep this up you’re in total denial. Pull your head out of the clouds and get real about the fact that your life needs a makeover. Pisces (Feb. 20 – March 20) Falling for the same old routine is reminding you that loving people involves putting up with their dramas; but only up to a point. Just this once, try detaching from what has nothing to do with you. Javon Lusane John Moreira Call CrimeStoppers at (800) 458-TIPS (8477) or you can log on to www.crimestopperspbc.com. I-95 Page 18 • Palms West Monthly • February 2014 Read us online at PalmsWestMonthly.com Northwood to expand thanks to three-year $10 million campaign NORTHWOOD / FROM PAGE 1 campaign has brought the pair of projects to fruition. “There’s a really good chance we’ll do both this year,” Duncan said. “Before I graduate – that’d be nice,” said Kyle Batta, a junior studying automotive marketing and management. A 21-year-old from Mansfield, Mass., Batta wants to follow in his family’s footsteps by working at a dealership and possibly owning one. He will get a taste of that in February during the Auto Show of the Palm Beaches. “They gave me the award for best display last year, and they asked me to be chairman this year,” Batta said. As chairman, he will head the two-day, 14-hour show that sees between 200 and 300 new vehicles roll onto campus to be marketed by students. “I’m definitely going into the automotive business,” Batta said. “I know I can handle it because I’ve been trained pretty well here. I love my professors.” Batta said he also loves his classmates, who come from more than two dozen states and nearly 50 countries. “The biggest part of Northwood, to me, is the international aspect,” he said. “It’s like a different sort of person who goes here, and it’s like everybody who goes here is best friends. It’s a very creative school.” As the “very creative school” with the diverse student body turns 30, faculty members are looking forward to its high-tech future while reflecting on its rustic past. “I recall … my drive into campus for my first interview,” professor Cheryl Pridgeon said. “Back then, the front part of the property was not cleared, and … the drive curved through dense woods. For a moment back then, I began to think I was on the set of Deliverance and wondered if there was even a school here.” Northwood University’s graduates have succeeded not only in opening car dealerships but also in inventing products, running resorts and manufacturing products. On Feb. 1, some of the most distinguished alumni will receive recognition at the Outstanding Business Leader Awards Gala, the proceeds from which benefit scholarship programs. David Fry, the school’s first president, takes pride in the way the campus was shaped and predicts bright days ahead. “When I became president in 1982, it seemed right to shoot for the stars and to build a West Palm Beach campus with the idea that the best and brightest from around the world would call it home,” Fry said. “We managed to get that started, and the response was terrific. But the best is yet to come, I feel certain.” Auto Show of the Palm Beaches set for Feb. 22-23 By AMY WOODS Palms West Monthly WEST PALM BEACH — Northwood University’s 2014 Auto Show of the Palm Beaches, themed “Dine, Dream, Drive,” will feature food trucks, family fun and four wheels galore when it hits the West Palm Beach campus Feb. 22 and 23. The annual event also will celebrate the Seahawks’ homecoming, with open houses, men’s and women’s basketball games and a nod to the school’s 30th anniversary. “It’s completely run by us,” auto show captain Kyle Batta said of the two-day, fourwheeled affair. “Dealer contacts, vendors, marketing – it’s all students.” The 26th-annual extravaganza at the school will include between 200 and 300 domestic and imported cars, trucks and recreational vehicles selling for between $10,000 and $400,000. Spread across the university’s 100 acres, the show provides the perfect opportunity for car enthusiasts throughout Palm Beach County to browse without sales pressure. “It’s good for their education to plan big events,” campus President Tom Duncan said of the show. “It’s just good for our students to learn all about the cars. I am always amazed at how they just dig in.” Show hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 22 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 23. Admission is free. “With automotive marketing and management being one of Northwood University’s unique programs, the university has educated leaders in the franchised automotive-retail market … for the past several decades,” said Suzi McCreery, director of public relations. “Its link to the automotive industry is strong and getting stronger, not just here in the United States but across the globe.” For more information on Northwood’s auto show, call (561) 681-7972 or go online to northwood.edu/pbautoshow.
