At the most recent meeting of the Gifford
Health Council, Hawker passed around a
post card warning against putting food out
for the hundreds of stray cats that roam
through Gifford, generating a risk of rabies
and – of particular consequence to unborn
children – toxoplasmosis, which is spread to
pregnant women through cat feces in the
soil. “You have to look at where people live,
work and play to improve health and work,”
Hawker said. “That is the essential work we
do through PACE. All of the other clinical ser-
vices round out a comprehensive service of
health to the community.”
The Gifford Health Center opened with
much fanfare in 2003, becoming the first and
still the only health center in Gifford. The
county had given the land for the building,
there was $400,000 in donations, and the
Hospital District put up the rest of the mon-
ey. Over the years, though, the Health De-
partment had its funding cut by the state a
number of times and, in 2014, it moved adult
healthcare services out of Gifford to its main
building three miles away, leaving only pedi-
atric care at Gifford.
Beyond the Health Department, Gifford
Health Center does currently offer other
services, all from agencies funded through
the Hospital District. There is pre-natal care
provided by the Partners in Women’s Health
program; there is Healthy Start, a maternal
counseling group, which recently moved
seven staffers into the clinic’s offices, includ-
ing a nurse practitioner; and there is a ther-
apist from the Mental Health Association on
premises one day a week.
In addition, a grant two years ago from the
Impact 100 group funded a wing now staffed
by a full-time doctor with We Care, a group
of 120 volunteer doctors who provide care
for free. Like the other groups, We Care gets
funds from the Hospital District.

ized Gifford Health Center. Those would

Former St. Ed’s star basks in Riverside’s bright lights
By Pam Harbaugh | Correspondent Jamari Williams.
PHOTOS: DENISE RITCHIE
The stars have aligned well for Jamari
A talented young man who grew up in
Vero Beach, Williams was once a fixture with
the Gifford Youth Orchestra. In high school
he took the stage in starring roles at St. Ed-
ward’s School, and he started booking gigs
almost immediately after graduating from
the American Musical and Dramatic Acade-
my near Lincoln Center.
Now, at the tender age of 24, he’s returned
to Vero Beach to star in “Smokey Joe’s Café,”
which opened the new season at Riverside
Theatre on Oct. 23.
“This is completely incredible,” said Wil-
liams, who was taking care of a sore throat.
“I’m taking all the things – lots of tea, honey,
Echinacea, natural things, even some antibiot-
ics,” he said. “But the voice is still here.”
Thrilled to be back in his hometown, Wil-
liams said this means more of his family can
come see him perform. That includes aunts,
uncles, cousins, a great-grandmother and
his two beloved grandmothers – “Grand-
ma Willie and Grandma Theresa.” His par-
ents have moved to Georgia, but they could
make it as well.
Although family wants him to stay with
them while he’s in town, he’s staying
with the rest of the cast in a hotel room
close to the theater, which makes it easi-
er to get to rehearsals.
“I love my family, but I’m here to do
the shows,” he said. “I’ve been in and out
of rehearsal but try to see them as much
as I can.”
And then there are the friends who didn’t
get the chance to see him in the national
tour of “Memphis,” or the shows he origi-
nated at Bush Gardens in Williamsburg, Va.
An old high school friend, Callie Schnur,
now the local sales manager for Treasure and
Space Coast Radio, shrieked when she saw
him walking in for a radio interview.
The two of them performed musicals at St.
Edward’s together, including “Beauty and the
Beast.” She was the Tea Pot, he was the Beast.

be able to do different things.”
Just as the Gifford Youth Orchestra ex-
posed him to music, St. Edward’s exposed
him to even more.

TWO ALTERNATIVES THAT DO NOT WORK WEST NORTH EAST
Q 10 3 J9854 —
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist K Q 10 9 7 3 2 A6 85
J4 A32 Q 10 9 7 6
Henry Kissinger said, “The absence of alternatives clears the mind marvelously.” 2 J74 K Q 10 9 8
Yes, but this deal has two interesting alternatives with which to occupy the mind. SOUTH
When I described the play in four spades yesterday, South took the first trick with J4
dummy’s heart ace, cashed his spade, diamond and club winners, then endplayed West K85
by leading his heart jack. Fine, but what might have happened if declarer, instead of giving A63
West the lead in hearts at trick seven, had exited with a trump? Also, what could have
transpired if South had not won the first trick? Dealer: West; Vulnerable: East-West
North might have cue-bid four hearts over three spades to show a strong raise to four The Bidding:
spades (and promise nothing about hearts).
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
If South throws West in with his trump or ducks the first trick, the contract can be 3 Spades 3 Hearts Pass Pass
defeated. Pass 4 Spades All Pass LEAD:
In the first case, after winning with his spade queen, West must resist the temptation to
cash the heart queen. Instead, he must lead a low heart to declarer’s jack. Then South will
have to lose one diamond and two clubs to East, along with the spade already conceded.
That defense should not be too hard to find, but the other one really takes some
imagination. After the heart king and a heart to the ace, when declarer cashes his two top
trumps, West must throw the 10 and queen under them! Then he cannot be endplayed,
and the contract will go down one. After the deal, probably South would congratulate
West on his great play, then say that if only West had had the spade four and dummy the
spade three, the contract would still have made.
Come in and let us create a masterful blend of function
and esthetics for the kitchen of your dreams.
