Is there an organization that can give me information on how I can best meet these needs? Answer: Yes, you can call the Center for Independent Living of Palm Beach County for advice on what is required by the American Disabilities Act, or get a low-cost accessibility study to de-termine modifications needed.

Q: A co-worker lost a close friend to suicide two years ago. He is still not coping well with the aftermath. He blames himself and wonders what he could have done to prevent the suicide. How can I ease the pain and anger he feels? A: A person who has lost fam- traordinary dance troupe is spending the weekend with us," said Efraim Warshaw, Rabbi for programming and education at the temple. "It's more than just a Sunday afternoon performance. It's a real cultural exchange with the young dancers spending three days in the homes of different temple members. "I saw them perform when I lived in Jerusalem. They drew huge crowds because of their dynamic style and their love of what they do so well." Next Sunday's 4 p.m. gala performance will be filled with numerous costume changes with colorful and exciting dances from Israel. Admission is $5 for adults, $2.50 per teen, $2 per child and are available in the school office, 190 N. County Road, Palm Beach, or by calling 832-0804.

However, the best source of healing is, a suicide survivors support group. There are several survivor support groups throughout Palm Beach County.

Not Crowd is in Several weeks ago, because we felt adventurous, Mark and I decided to head west on Southern Boulevard instead of east. Ooooh. After an hour's drive, we found jpurselves in Clewiston, home of the Hendry County Fair. It was bbout 7:30 p.m. when we arrived fend about 10:30 p.m. when we left. We spent most of that time waiting or the action to start. t Sure, the midway was ready to roll, but no one was near it. The jractor pull was scheduled to start, put there were no contestants. jThe cotton candy and cinnamon ipuns and taffy apples were there for the eating, but no one was buying. Mark and I sat by ourselves at the top of the ferris jvheel, rocking slowly back and Iforth as we looked out over the Jdeserted fairgrounds. "And to think I couldn't find a 'parking space," Mark said. "It's ieerie." t "They're here somewhere," I 3replied. "We've just got to find ftiem." I When the ride stopped, we set tout for the arts and crafts tent. There were quilts, preserves and .4-H displays, but even the vendors fitting in their booths gave us odd Jstares that asked, "What are you Jdoing here?" ; We admired the new tractors, jtook a good long look at the latest in mobile homes and then, quite by (accident, stumbled upon the mec-ca of Hendry County the hog tent. t It seemed as if the entire county was in that tent. The bleachers Svere packed with spectators. The preteen Queens of the Fair were at center stage, ready to dispense the winners' ribbons. Video-graphers amateur and professional were jockeying for position. The scene lived up to every promise made by the fair's theme i "Mardi Gras."

"It's time for the judging." The kids parading their hogs had waited all year for this, not to mention the anticipation of the hogs themselves. Several of them (the hogs, not the kids) had to be separated from each other by handlers who unceremoniously shoved plywood between the Ro-meos and Juliets of the group. The air was electric with suspense and fragrant with something else. After careful deliberations, the judge motioned for the queen to bring over the blue ribbon. "This is just what we in the industry look for," he said, standing over one particularly huge porker. "He's a little loose in the belly with good meaty hams." The jubilant crowd gave new meaning to the phrase "hog wild." The pig's owner grinned broadly. Flash cameras lit up the room. But reality hit when I saw a Winn-Dixie representative reach for his checkbook. "Let's go," I said to Mark. We were glum on the ride home, having gained a deeper understanding of "the industry" and a newfound respect for bacon. The atmosphere was different back at the fair. The crowd happily surged out of the tent over to the arts and crafts area, into the mobile homes and onto the rides. Many climbed onto the roller coaster for a relaxing ride . . . now that the real excitement was over. shops Shopping Center, 863 Donald Ross Road, Juno Beach, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 624-5495. 319 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 832-6649. 25 S.E.
