The audience assembles slowly, fitfully, like sleepwalkers in a clouded dream: eight residents of Clare Bridge of Tequesta, a facility for Alzheimers and dementia care. They arrive in wheelchairs or pushing walkers or assisted by uniformed aides. Then, from their semi-circle of seating, they stare straight ahead, as if absorbed in deep thought, or afloat in the lack of it. It is 3 p.m. on a Friday, and time for harp therapy. Laura Cole moves slowly, too. She slides her Westover folk harp from its black canvas cover and sets it on a small, ivorycolored pillow atop a footrest. She rubs Avalon Organics lotion onto her hands from the small sample bottle in her purse, because lotion, she says, makes the strings sound sweeter.Ž She pours bottled water into a paper cup and sets it on the round wooden table beside her. She hopes, in the next hour, to perform a kind of magic. This sort of audience is rarely static, its response not always pre-dictable. This area is The Gallery, an extra-wide hallway where residents listen to visiting entertainers or play simple games. Sun-light, sliced by floor-to-ceiling venetian UST LIKE FASHION FOOD follows trends „ sub-tle and not so subtle.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 The revolutionary, dynamic confluence of business and so-called social media is no more obvious around here than at Deborah Forstens monthly Social Media Roundup,Ž at the Store Self Storage & Wine Storage in Palm Beach Gardens. Consider: Social media has overtaken pornography as the No. 1 activity on the Web. It took 38 years for radio to reach 50 million users, 13 years for TV, four years for the Internet, three years for the iPod. In contrast, Facebook added more than 200 million users in less than a year, now has 500 million users and tops Google for weekly traffic in the U.S. Moreover, in the United Kingdom, 50 percent of the mobile Internet traffic is for Facebook. If Facebook were a country, it would be the worlds third most populous, between India and the U.S. The fastest growing segment on Facebook is females between 55 and 65 years old. Meanwhile, some 80 percent of companies employ social media for recruitment, with 95 percent of those using LinkedIn. Ashton Kutcher (an actor who I confess I didnt know any more than he knew me until I Googled him) and Britney Spears, have more Twitter followers than the entire populations of Sweden, Israel, Switzerland, Ireland, Norway and Panama. In many texting quarters, e-mail already is consid-ered laughably Old School. YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world. Wikipedia (wiki is a Hawaiian term for quick) has more than 15 million articles, 78 percent of which are non-English. There are more than 200 million blogs. Sure, it all could go poof! „ like South Floridas and most everyone elses real estate bubbles. But is social media merely a fad „ or the biggest shift since the Industrial Revolution? For now its a growing worldwide phenomenon, and a fundamental change in the way a heck-uva lot of human beings communicate, and of course, do business. Meanwhile, back in Reality, USA „ or least South Florida „ Ms. Forstens monthly sessions are helping novices and experienced users corral this stam-pede of Internet and business innovation. Her sessions, and the video you can see at socialmediaroundup.com, are where I gleaned the above data. The site is loaded as she archives more after each meeting. Ms. Forstens a natural for this stuff. A business specialist at Palm Beach State College, shes been developing web solutions for people for years. She seemingly lives to learn more in order to share more, and help demystify technol-ogy for practical application. That suits the dozen to two dozen folks who, at a meager $10 to help with expenses, attend from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month to learn how to integrate the new media into their marketing strategies. A regular for the previous three sessions has been Sharon Wardle, a travel consultant using social media to pro-mote Ship & Shore, her and her hus-bands meeting and event planning busi-ness. Maruchy Lachance and her hus-bands business is Running Ninja, gifts and clothes for runners,Ž she said. We started off on Facebook as our primary advertiser. We have since gotten a web-site and we are busy working to take us to the next level.Ž Melina Kaufman, another regular, exemplifies the atmosphere fostered by Forsten. Having been a Facebook mem-ber since 2005, the owner of Spotlight Graphic Design and specialist in social media shared tons of tips during the Sep-tember session, as folks toting their lap-tops friendedŽ her on Facebook. The month before, Jeff Yaniga, adjunct faculty member in social media at PBSC, dropped pearls of LinkedIn wisdom. Coming down the pike: a session on Twitter. Even the business that hosts the sessions „ Store Self Storage & Wine Stor-age, just north of PGA Boulevard on Military Trail „ is rather revolutionary. As the name suggests, We have regu-lar climate controlled storage, and wine storage, which is unique to this area,Ž said Cindy June. She and husband Franz manage the category 4 storm-rated, 2009 Storage Facility of the Year that has backup generators in the wine cellars. Theres nothing like us between Orlan-do and Miami,Ž she said. We have the look of the Ritz-Carlton but our prices are comparable to all of our competi-tors. Extraordinary storage with ordinary prices, totally outside of the box when you think of storage.Ž Shes also inside the room for every roundup session. This local nexus of business, technology and innovation seemed a natural to showcase in this column for the thinking person. The implications of the social media explosion, however, seem inestimable. In this latest phase of the chase for the next killer application and the un-mighty dollar, some concerns of mine are that not enough attention is being given the radiation bombard-ment from our texting kids and our own ubiquitous cell phones. Or the environ-mental aspects and long-term stability of all our data hanging out there in the computer cloud. Ms. Forsten being Ms. Forsten, shell be learning and sharing about all that too, and teaching on it at PBSC and elsewhere. Among her tips, for example, was a reminder that for practically any-thing anyone wants to learn, theres a video on YouTube. Her brand of shar-ing, in an informal, social and yes, ritzy atmosphere, helps explain why folks keep hanging around after 7 p.m. Q „ My gratitude for all the kindness from those of you who were readers of more than two decades of my editorials and columns for The Palm Beach Post. Im still rooting for my friends there. But for those who have wanted more of my offerings, welcome. Im going to love sharing on the issues and goings-on in our community, if not our galaxy. Thanks for joining me on this latest journey.COMMENTARY Group gathers at cool Gardens storage firm to demystify social media c.b. HANIF O cbhanif@floridaweekly.com

OPINION John le Carr, the former British spy turned spy novelist, has some grave words for Tony Blair. More than seven years after the invasion of Iraq, the former British prime minis-ter, now out of office and touring the world pushing his political memoir, is encountering serious protests at his book signings. I cant understand that Blair has an afterlife at all. It seems to me that any politician who takes his country to war under false pretenses has commit-ted the ultimate sin,Ž he told me when I sat down with Mr. le Carr recently in London. Weve caused irreparable damage in the Middle East. I think we shall pay for it for a long time.Ž We sat in a television studio across the River Thames overlooking two of his former places of employment: MI5, the domestic security service, and MI6, the secret intelligence service, which operates internationally (the equivalents of the U.S.s FBI and CIA). John le Carr is the pen name of David Cornwell, who was a spy from the late 1950s into the early 1960s. He began to write novels and had to assume a pen name due to his work as a spy. He was stationed in Germany when, in 1961, he saw the Berlin Wall go up, motivating him to write his third novel, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold.Ž The novel came out as another British spy novelist, Ian Fleming, was enjoying success with his series about the notorious fictional British spy James Bond. Unlike the flamboyant characters and endless action of the Bond books and films, the subjects of Mr. le Carrs novels were bleak characters engaged in unsavory acts of deception and calculated violence. With the world focused on the Berlin Wall and the Cuban missile crisis, le Carr captured a global audience, depicting the raw reality of the spy on the front lines of the Cold War. As the Cold War ended, Mr. le Carr continued his prolific writing, shifting focus, increasingly, to the inequities of globalization, unchecked multination-al corporate power and the frequent confluence of corporate interests and the activities of national spy services. Perhaps best known among his later novels is The Constant Gardener,Ž about a pharmaceutical company using unwitting people in Kenya for dangerous, sometimes fatal, tests of an experimental drug. He explained, The things that are done in the name of the shareholder are, to me, as terrifying as the things that are done „ dare I say it „ in the name of God.Ž Like many of his novels, The Constant GardenerŽ was made into a popular feature film starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz. Mr. le Carr has written often of Africa: Its where I have seen globalization at work on the ground. Its a pretty ugly sight. Its a boardroom fantasy. What it actually means is the exploitation of very cheap labor, very often the eco-logical disaster that comes with it, the creation of mega-cities, the depletion of agrarian cultures and tribal cultures.Ž His latest book (his 22nd), just out this week, is called Our Kind of Trai-tor.Ž It targets a fictional array of Lon-don bankers and their protectors in Parliament, who collude with Russian Mafiosi to prop up the collapsed world economy by laundering hundreds of billions of dollars in criminal profits. Back in 2003, before the invasion of Iraq, Mr. le Carr marched against the war with, by many estimates, more than 1 million people: We were all wedged together and looking into Downing Street, where the prime min-isters residency is ... a kind of feral roar of popular will rose. I tried to imagine what it must have been like for Blair sitting inside that building and hearing that sound. ... I think it will always be remembered of him that he took us to war on the strength of lies.Ž He said he wouldnt buy Blairs book, but he does have some questions for him: Have you ever seen what happens when a grenade goes off in a school? Do you really know what youre doing when you order shock and awe? Are you prepared to kneel beside a dying soldier and tell him why he went to Iraq, or why he went to any war?Ž Mr. le Carr summed up what he sees as a central problem for global powers, especially Britain and the U.S.: Victims never forget, and the winners do. And they forget very quickly.Ž Because of that, John le Carr contin-ues writing, into his 80th year, engag-ing people as he seeks what he calls the big truth.Ž Q „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.John le Carr: Calling out the traitorsTwo-thirds of West Virginians approve of the job performance of Gov. Joe Manchin. In ordinary circumstanc-es, that would be enough to get him any promotion he wants. Not in 2010. Gov. Manchin trails Republican businessman John Raese in a key Senate race. As soon as he stepped off the state stage into a federal race, he became associated with Obama liberalism, a deadly virus against which personal popularity „ and even moderation „ provides only limit-ed immunity. If he loses, hell be a victim of the revenge of the Hillary voters. In the 2008 Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton had persistent appeal among working-class whites, loosely defined as whites without a college education. As Henry Olsen of the American Enterprise Institute notes, 94 percent of West Virginians are white, and only 17 percent of them have a bachelors degree or higher. In the 2008 primary, Sen. Clinton beat Barack Obama in West Virginia by 67 percent to 26 percent. Today, Obamas approval rating in the state is ... 29 percent. Democrats have undertaken an experiment in whether you can be the self-styled party of working people if you dont have much appeal to a swath of working people. In President Obamas case, the answer is yes,Ž at least it was in 2008. He lost the roughly 40 percent of the elector-ate that is working-class whites to John McCain by 18 points, but made up the deficit among other groups. In that con-text, the preference of working-class whites for Republicans over Democrats on the generic ballot by 22 points this year isnt alarming. President Obama running nationally conceivably can overcome that kind of gap. But an untold number of Demo-crats running in areas where working-class whites predominate cant, as a matter of sheer arithmetic. Many of these Democratic majority makersŽ will be the sacrificial lambs of Obama liberalism. According to Gallup, President Obamas approval rating is still above 50 percent among blacks, Hispanics, voters between ages 18-29, moderates, postgraduates, singles and Easterners. Hes below 50 percent among everyone else, and in the 30s among whites, vot-ers 65 or older and married people „ exactly the voters who disproportion-ately turn out in midterm elections. Liberals want to chalk this up to race. But in January 2009, when President Obama was as African-American as he is today, his approval rating was 63 percent among whites. Its long been an occupational hazard of liberalism to get crosswise with working-class whites. President Obama is particularly vulnerable because he combines the affect of Adlai Steven-son with the economic performance of Jimmy Carter. He came into office with working-class voters suspicious that he didnt understand their concerns and proceeded with an agenda „ health care, cap-and-trade and all the rest of it „ that didnt address their concerns, or work. President Obama famously boasted to a retiring conservative Democratic congressman that this year would be different from 1994, because Democrats had him at the top. Ask Joe Manchin, among many others, how thats work-ing out.

Behind the cash register at Sabor Havana Cigars, Bart Espinoza sucks on a $12 Padrino Exclusivo, grins broadly and recalls the first time smoke got in his eyes. He was 6, maybe 7, on the red-tiled patio of his childhood home in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. His Grandpa Toin held out a cigar and offered a puff. Could it be? A cigar? For him? Cigars were a life force. Their smell was romance. Smoking them was what men did. He accepted the offer, of course, little man that he was. Drew in the smoke and let it out again. Gazed out at the almond and the avocado trees in the yard. And he felt . awful.I got sick,Ž says Mr. Espinoza. I used to get asthma when I was young. Thats how my mother knew I had been out there smok-ing. The coughing. That, and the smell.Ž He is not, hes quick to say, advocating that 6and 7-year-olds test their big-boy tolerance with a toke from Daddys stogie. Nor is he suggesting that smoking anything is healthy, even though one doesnt inhale with a cigar, and, anyway, Everything in Moderation, right? You smoke cigars for the enjoyment, the smell, the relaxation, the down time,Ž Mr. Espinoza says. And, you know, theyve always been associated with the well-to-do, the affluent.Ž Cigars have the smell of the boardroom about them, the scent of a luxury yacht. They speak of celebration: the arrival of the stork, the sealing of a business deal. But, sometimes, they just speak of a Sunday afternoon spent watching NFL red-zone plays on the plasma-screen mounted above a high shelf of cigar boxes in Mr. Espinozas shop in PGA Commons. Did you see that bomb?Ž he asks no one in particular, when the Atlanta Falcons throw for a touchdown. Oh, sweet. Sweet!Ž The three khaki-and-T-shirt-clad guys sunken into a cushy leather sofa clearly see no need to engage in conversation, content just to keep their eyes fixed on the TV screen, their cigars clamped in their mouths. If this were a Saturday, theyd probably be watching an end-of-season baseball game here. Or on a Friday evening, they might be savoring a glass of port or sipping a caf Cubano, part of the ritual through which Mr. Espinoza emphasizes the cigar culture. The room is cigar-perfumed, the aroma rich and loamy, woodsy and almost-choco-late-y. Their brand names bespeak romance: Romeo y Julieta, La Glorida Cubana, La Aurora, Perdomo Patriach. Mr. Espinoza calls this shop the biggest humidor in the Palm Beaches,Ž its entire 1,300 square feet maintained at the optimum storage temperature (65-to-70 degrees) and humidity (70 percent) to ensure that the fragile, hand-rolled tobacco doesnt dry out and lose its flavor. Most expensive: $42 for one Zino Davidoff Crown Series cigar made in the Dominican Republic and blended with Peruvian tobacco. Like every cigar in Mr. Espinozas shop, it owes its existence to Cuban seed. After the U.S. banned importation of Cuban cigars along with all goods Cuban, some who left the island took tobacco with them to Nicara-gua and Honduras and the D.R. and Peru. Mr. Espinoza is fond of a particular embargo-related story related by former presidential press secretary Pierre Salinger in a 1992 article in Cigar Aficionado magazine. Mr. Salinger recalled how President John F. Kennedy summoned him on Feb. 6, 1962, and dispatched him to obtain 1,000 Cuban cigars. Mr. Salinger returned, the next day, with 1,200 cigars, at which point the president signed the executive order that put into effect the trade embargo on Fidel Castros Cuba. For years, beginning in the mid-1880s, Tampas Ybor City neighborhood was the worlds cigar capital, out-producing even Havana. The Cuban-born playwright Nilo Cruz became the first Latin American to win a Pulitzer Prize in drama for Anna in the Tropics,Ž which was set in Ybor City. But, says Mr. Espinoza, Ybor Citys day is long past, the trade having moved to Miami and then to the Dominican Republic, where labor is cheaper. And price, Mr. Espinoza is saying, means that anyone can enjoy a fine cigar. A bottle of truly great wine can cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars, but even a working stiff can afford a great cigar. At least once, you can do it,Ž he says. Cigars have always had their fanciers, some of whom gave their stogies near-trade-mark status. Winston Churchill was one; Mark Twain (I have made it a rule never to smoke more than one cigar at a timeŽ) was another. And Rudyard Kiplings poem The BetrothedŽ was a tongue-in-cheek reaction to a reported breach-of-promise case involv-ing a womans demand that her beloved give up cigars for her:Light me another Cuba „ I hold to my first-sworn vows, If Maggie will have no rival, Ill have no Maggie for Spouse. And then there was Sigmund Freud, who reportedly smoked 20 cigars a day, and, challenged by colleagues who knew his thoughts about phallic symbols, supposedly said, Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.Ž To Bart Espinoza, it is all rather simple: His customers come to shake off lifes stresses, to ease back and relax, to sit out on the brick patio in front of his shop and... well, let him tell it: You come, with your wife or your husband and sit outside, and he can enjoy a glass of port and she can have a glass of wine, and you dont have to worry your hair is gonna stink.Ž Q www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 15 MINUTES Shop is rich with aroma of cigars, relaxing atmosphereBY MARY JANE FINE_________________________mj“ ne@” oridaweekly.com Packages & special room rates available: (888) 529-6588 October 29 „ November 7, 2010 MARY JANE FINE/FLORIDA WEEKLY Bart Espinoza offers fine cigars and a relaxing environment in his shop in PGA Commons.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 ingredients as part of the farm to tableŽ movement, and doing less to them to present the foods interestingly in their purest forms.It’s about the moneyThe economy has had the greatest impact on restaurants and diners, and both are looking for new ways to go about the business of eating outside the home. Not only have the plates gotten smaller, so have the portions. Its eco-nomically smart for the restaurants, and a welcome relief to most people who ponder whether to share a dish, or take it home for one or two more meals „ an inconvenience for some. Its the new wave of dining out today, when diners are going out less frequently, and carefully comparing restaurants for value. Theyre clipping coupons and buying half-price din-ing certificates online. FriendingŽ or becoming a fan of a restaurant on Face-book has become the modern way of getting in on exclusive deals. Diners are pinching pennies in other ways „ many choosing a different meal hour, or looking for theme days when prices on certain foods and drinks are discounted „ and going when the pric-es are more wallet-friendly. I see a trend toward eating bigger meals in the daytime and not so much at night. We do considerably more business at brunch and sometimes lunch than before,Ž said Fran Marinco-la, owner of Caffe Luna Rosa, an ocean-side Italian restaurant in Delray Beach. Happy hour, with half-price appetizers at his restaurant, also is popular. I see diners coming in for a big meal at lunch, then coming back at happy hour for just an app or two, and a glass of wine.ŽNot just for seniorsYounger people and families also strapped for cash realize the value of smaller meals at smaller prices, so early bird dinners are no longer exclusive to the senior set. And discounts at spots like La Fogata in North Palm Beach that have $1 margaritas as well (on Monday nights) attract young professionals like Matthew Steinhoff, who relies on Facebook and Twitter to let his friends know about the deals. The reverse is also true „ late-night full menus, like that at Holy Smokes! in Palm Beach Gardens, used to attract other hospitality workers and the young clubbers, but some older diners find the cheaper bar menus worth stay-ing up for. Half-portions are becoming common across menus „ appetizers are offered as either small plate or entre portions, or some entrees offered as half-plates for a reduced price. At the Kee Grill in Juno Beach, already popular for its early night menu, the same entre crab cakes are served in an appetizer por-tion. The entre portion comes with all the trimmings, so diners who are thrifty can save both calories and dollars ordering the ample first-course dish as a meal.Ingredients take new formsChefs are using their foods in new ways to extend their value. Somewhat pricy crab is moving beyond the crab cakes; look for she-crab soup at several restaurants this season, including the new Gulfstream Caf in Jupiter. Their version of this creamy bisque, a spe-cialty of Charleston, S.C., is offered as a first-course dish. Vegetables come forward as the green movement continues. Look for more vegetarian options as entrees, says restaurant critic John Tanasychuk, dining critic for the Sun Sentinel. Not only are they healthier, but again, more economical for both chef and diner. The rise in greenmarkets, and stores with fresh and local produce, have helped fuel the diners taste for some-thing other than broccoli, carrots and green beans as sides, too. Not long ago, Brussels sprouts became the darling of bistro chefs. Bit-ter greens such as kale, rabe, and esca-role are on a few menus, but the big seller is beets „ typically roasted, as in a salad at Figs in Palm Beach Gardens. Rather than worrying whether the produce is organic, however, diners are asking most often if its local.Ž These eaters are dubbed locavores,Ž and rea-son that the freshest produce, and most eco-friendly are small-farm produced foods that likely come from within a 100-mile radius of the plate. Those vegetables arent just for savory uses; sweet potato and squash bread pudding is turned into a dessert. The curious eggplant with sugar des-sert served at one of Mario Batalis res-taurants in New York has pastry chefs buzzing about candied squash, eggplant and tomatoes. Unique, to say the least. Its a reverse trend, as well. Marshmallows „ an ingredient we think of only as something to complete a smore, were on the plate with lamb brochettes at a recent function where The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach chef came to cook. The sweetness is great with the lamb,Ž chef Ryan Artim noted. Diners were surprised, but the chef pointed out mint jelly typically served with lamb also is sweet, so why not? Artim also will serve a chestnut marshmallow atop the lobster bisque on the Plymouth Rock Thanksgiving dinner offered by The Ritz. Chef Michelle Bernstein, at the Omphoy Palm Beach, gives out choco-late covered house-made mint marsh-mallows to guests; other pastry chefs FAREFrom page 1 SCOTT B.

Its extensive list of nicknames clearly indi-cates its uniqueness. The first thing to point out about the two-striped walking stick is to keep your distance. When in danger, it will squirt „ with accuracy up to a distance of one foot „ a strong-smelling and caustic spray that is pain-fully irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes. Victims have reported that the pain is so excru-ciating that it is as though someone has poured hot, molten lead into your eye, impairing vision for a week or longer. If sprayed by one of these insects, you should flush the eye immediately.Another bizarre aspect of the walking stick is that the male spends almost its entire adult life riding on the back of the female. The male is roughly one-third the size of the female and generally is positioned near the rear of the female. Forcefully separating the two will sometimes result in the death of both insects. The two-striped walking stick is similar to the millipede in that it is a detritivore, as well as a herbivore, feed-ing on both living and decaying plant life. It uses its chem-ical spray to deter would-be predators such as birds, rats, snakes and lizards. Some rodents have learned to keep their distance and wait until the large female has sprayed five or six times, leaving her reservoir depleted, then pounce upon her to dine. The walk-ing stick is closely related to the family of insects known as preying mantises and many species are parthenogenetic (capable of asexual reproduc-tion). Most of the sightings of this insect occur just before darkness falls or just prior to dawn. They are essentially a nocturnal insect and can some-times be found at night by using a flashlight. Be careful when searching for them as they so closely resemble dead sticks that they are often stepped on by accident. Q „ Charles Sobczak is a Florida-based writer.

Write to Kovels, (Florida Weekly), King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019. COURTESY PHOTO Halloween-related decorations and objects are among todays most popular collectibles. The idea of Halloween can be traced back to some ancient Celtic and early Irish celebrations. The name HalloweenŽ comes from an Irish cel-ebration held on Oct. 31, the day before All Saints Day. It also was a harvest festival, so pumpkins and food were featured. But it was not until the early 1900s that Halloween images began to evolve, especially for postcards. Halloween back then was an adult holiday featuring parties and games. It became a childrens holiday, with trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns, in the 1940s. Decorations and collect-ibles became scary and included dev-ils, witches, black cats and skeletons. Today you should look for old die-cut displays, papier-mch jack-o-lanterns and other symbols, noisemakers and costumes „ anything that looks like a Halloween item. Most common are papier-mch or plastic carvedŽ pump-kins, then black cats, skeletons and owls. Higher-priced are witches, bats and odd-looking vegetable people. Most desirable are devils, probably because theyre the hardest to find. But beware. Many copies of old papier-mch fig-ures and candy containers were made in Germany and Asia in the 1990s. They look old, were made from old molds and were originally sold by com-panies that specialized in sales to flea-market dealers and gift shops. Q: When I was 10 years old, I was given a Mickey Mouse wristwatch. Im 87 now, so I must have received it in about 1933. Mickey is on the round face and his arms move to tell the time. The strap is black leather. Is it valuable? A: The very first Mickey Mouse wristwatches were made by Ingersoll-Waterbury Co. in 1933. It was the worlds first comic characterŽ wristwatch and was made in the same round-face style until 1937. Some had metal bands and others, leather bands. If your watch is indeed the first Mickey model and if its in excellent condition, it could sell for $500 or more. If you have the original box, the watch is even more valuable. Q: Do people collect old menus? I have a 1954 menu from the Stork Club in New York. The cover is a color draw-ing of the dining room filled with celeb-rities, including Lana Turner, William Holden and Arthur Godfrey. Inside, the priced menu offers a lobster dinner for $3.75, prime rib for $4.25, ice cream for 85 cents and 16 kinds of potatoes. It also notes that cigarette smoking was allowed in all rooms but cigars were limited to two special rooms. A: Yes, there are collectors of old menus. Some collectors would like your menu because of its cover picture of movie stars, while many others would like its record of the food served and its prices. We often forget that in the 1950s, middle-class men (few wives worked outside the home) making $75 a week were well-paid. The dollar of that day is worth about $20 today, so it would take an income of about $1,500 a week to live on the same scale today. Q: I have a doorstop that is shaped like a frog. It says, I croak for the Jack-son wagon.Ž Value and history, please. A: The frog doorstop was thought to be a political item made for Andrew Jacksons campaign for president in 1828 or 1832. But 1980s research found that the frog was made in 1880 as a giveaway for the Jackson Wagon Co. of Jackson, Mich. These frogs have sold for $100 to $300 in recent years. Q: Please tell me something about the This Veggie Man driving a pickle balloon that doubles as a jack-o-lantern sold for $4,387.

Brooklyn, N.Y., proctologist Boris Sachakov was paid for performing 6,593 hemorrhoidectomies and other proce-dures over a 13-month period „ an aver-age of 18 every day, 365 days a year (and 6,212 more than the doctor who billed the second-highest number). Q Government in action For most of 2010, Californias dysfunctional legislature could find no accept-able tax increases or spending cuts to keep the state from going broke, and only in October did it manage to cobble together enough pie-in-the-sky bookkeeping tricks to create the illusion of a balanced bud-get. Nonetheless, the legislature has been busy. It created a Motorcycle Awareness MonthŽ and a Cuss Free Week,Ž consid-ered changing the official state rock, and made it illegal to use non-California cows in the states marketing materials (a deci-sion that entailed five committee votes and exhausted eight legislative analyses, according to a September Wall Street Journal report). At a U.S. Senate committee grilling in September, the head of enforcement of the Securities and Exchange Commission admitted that not a single agency staff member has been fired or demoted over the multiple missed signals handed to them in some cases 11 years before the Ponzi schemes of Bernard Madoff and R. Allen Stanford were uncovered. Sen. Christo-pher Dodd of Connecticut said it appeared that one side of the agency was screaming that there was a fire,Ž but the other side of the agency demurred because putting it out would have been hard work. The Prudential Financial corporation, holder of life insurance contracts on U.S. troops, modified the standard payout method in 1999 „ by encouraging benefi-ciaries to take not lump sums but check-ing accountsŽ on which survivors could draw down proceeds as needed.Ž Though this arrangement obviously benefited Pru-dential, it was unclear to Bloomberg News (which broke the story in September 2010) why the Department of Veterans Affairs had endorsed it „ implicitly in 1999 and then in writing in September 2009. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERD DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE Least-competent criminals No time for disguises: Larry Shawn Taylor, 18, was arrested in Seattle in September, having been rather eas-ily identifiable when police stopped him. Two victims had reported being robbed by a man with GET MONEYŽ shaved into his haircut on one side and GETŽ tattooed on his right hand and MONEYŽ tattooed on the left. Ronald White, 35, was arrested in Cinnaminson, N.J., in July, and charged with shoplifting, and was released after posting $400 bail. Only afterward did police realize that some of the money was counterfeit, but five days later, Mr. White was re-arrested when he returned to the station to demand a partial refund for overpayingŽ the bail. Q Unfortunate names Donald N. Duck, 51, was arrested for DUI in Massillon, Ohio. Lord Jesus Christ, 50, was involved in a pedestrian injury in Northampton, Mass. Tara Wang married Austin DeCock in Moorhead, Minn., in October. Kermit Butts, 26, was arrested in the slaying of Samuel Boob, Madisonburg, Pa., in August. Cum Starkweather, 56, was arrested for prostitution, in Springfield, Ohio, in August. Finally, Shitterton village in Dorset County, England, recently decided to keep its name but make all municipal signs theft-proof. Q Tragedy and irony A 29-year-old man, in a group of 12 ghost huntersŽ on a field trip in Iredell County, N.C., in August, was killed by a speeding train. The 12 were investigating a rumored ghost trainŽ that killed 30 people in an 1891 crash and suppos-edly returns every year on the anniver-sary date. Q Great art! A September one-woman danceŽ recital of performer-writer Ann Liv Young as a naked CinderellaŽ at a theater in Brooklyn, N.Y., ran over-time because Ms. Young could not answer a scripted call of nature, which was to have been performed live on stage. According to an incredulous New York Times reviewer, Ms. Young sought tips from the audience to get her bowels moving but finally gave up and ended the performance. The reviewer cited the shows many lay-ers of failure.Ž Q Hard to kill A 23-year-old man on Chicagos South Side is still alive after he reported being shot twice on Sept. 17 by differ-ent people in different neighborhoods.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 blinds, stripes the carpet. Ms. Cole plucks a few strings, plays a few notes. There is no reaction from her small audience. Good to see you all,Ž she says. Its such a gorgeous day out.Ž Not a nod or a blink or a smile. Ms. Cole begins to play Pretty Maid Milking Her Cow,Ž a quiet-as-a-church piece she taught herself by ear from another harpists CD. And then the more familiar Greensleeves,Ž one arm lifting up and away, graceful as a ballerinas, the other steady, fingers stroking the strings. Just to her left, a tall man in a berryred sweater sits with head bowed, ankles crossed, fingers interlaced in his lap, a prayerful posture. The woman beside him, wearing pink slacks and a pink-and-white top, has her eyes closed. If theyre aware of Ms. Cole, they give no indica-tion. And she takes no offense. Her harp-therapy instruction included the mantra take nothing personally.Ž And she doesnt, not even when an alarm blares, again and again, declaring that a door has been left ajar longer than 15 sec-onds; this is a locked unit, as dementia patients are known to wander off. Ms. Cole eases into the Scottish folk tune My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean,Ž and now the man in the red sweater is awake. Beautiful,Ž he announces, beam-ing a smile in her direction. Ms. Cole plays God Bless AmericaŽ and Ameri-ca the Beautiful.Ž Very well done,Ž says the man, who is in his late 80s and whose name is Bob. The woman in pink alongside him „ her name is Helen, and she is 94 „ is alert now, too, and smiles her approval. The therapy is simple, direct, ancient. The use of music for healing is as old as musical notes. The English scholar Robert Burton, best known for The Anatomy of Mel-ancholia,Ž wrote in the 16th century that music and dance were essential for treating mental illness, especially melancholia, now known as depres-sion. Music, he wrote, has an excellent power ...to expel many other diseasesŽ and he called it a sovereign remedy against despair and melancholy.Ž Even earlier, Abu Nasr Al-Farabi, a Muslim scientist and philosopher who lived from 872 to 950, wrote in Meanings of the IntellectŽ about the therapeu-tic effect music has on the soul. And then, of course, there is the Bible and its story of King Saul, whose servants advised him, to seek out a man who is a skilful player on the harp; and it shall be, when the evil spirit from God cometh upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.Ž Music and wellness began sharing a more formal link in the years after World War I and World War II, when the Veterans Administration used music to aid in the treatment of physical, psy-chological and emotional battle inju-ries. The practice of music therapy now requires a four-year degree. Harp therapy, by contrast, is a newcomer. Its still an emerging field,Ž says Edie Elkan, the founder of Bedside Harp Inc., the program from which Laura Cole earned her hospital certification in a series of workshops and a 240-hour internship that had her strolling through ICUs and ERs and into patients room, playing her harp. With music therapy, the relationship is between the patient and the therapist. With harp therapy, the relationship is between the patient and the music.Ž The harp, Ms. Elkan is saying, is especially enchanting. There is no hard sci-ence that proves its power to heal, but, she says, clearly, it has something to do with the vibration. Patients will say, You touched my soul.Ž Laura Coles good vibrations may touch souls, too. They certainly calm, soothe, entertain. And in the words of Miriam Pereira, Clare Bridge of Teques-tas activities director, Ms. Coles music is more. It is magical.Ž The magic comes in scraps of memory, retrieved. It comes in mouths twitch-ing into smiles. And that is what Ms. Coles small audience shows her. By the time she strums Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, doŽ and Take Me Out to the Ballgame,Ž Bob and Helen are singing along, another resident is tap-ping his thigh in time to the music, and two aides and a supervisor have paused to join the group, nodding to the rhythm, even singing along. Documentaries have shown that using music can change brain function,Ž says Rebecca Lauter, a violinist and music professor at FAU. It focuses the mind in a much better way than speech.Ž For people with Alzheimers, she says, Music may trigger memories. Different parts of the brain have information that can be triggered in different ways.Ž Ask an Alzheimers patient, for example, if he knows the song Daisy, DaisyŽ and the response may be no response, but play the music and the lyrics might pour out. A Norwegian study found that exposure to live music made dementia patients less anxious and depressed. A French study of Alzheimers patients drew similar conclusions, noting improvements in patients mood, self-expression, mental processing, speech, sensory stimulation and motor skills. Patients in a study at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation report-ed that music therapy made their pain less disabling; the overall results cred-ited music therapy with a 21-percent reduction in pain levels and a 25-percent drop in pain-related depression. At Clare Bridge of Tequesta, Laura Cole shows again that old-timey songs make people, as she says, think of bet-ter times. Even if theyre not responsive, you see them take deeper breaths, you see their shoulders relax.Ž And this is what keeps her playing; this is what tells her that, at last, she has found the calling meant for her. She grew up in Montclair, N.J., 12 miles west of the bright lights, big city life of New York. After college, she tried book reviewing, then copywriting, and then lived for 11 years in the high-fi-nance world of Wall Street, doing equity research for UBS, the giant wealth-man-agement, investment-banking firm. Her creative side sought solace at Renaissance fairs and an annual joust with a Middle Ages fantasy-reenactment camp, where she strolled amid costumed knights and princesses, warriors and archers and harp-playing minstrels, her imagination at play. The music wove its spell around her, light and strong as a spiders web. Things began to fall in place after that, like notes on a scale. At a medieval Yule feast, she met a harp teacher and began to learn the instrument, a natural progression after a childhood spent at the piano. At a summer harp festival, she met Edie Elkan, who taught harp therapy at host hospitals in Pennsylvania and in Ms. Coles home state of New Jersey. In workshops, Ms. Cole learned about the healing effects of music, and more. You learn about yourself, who you are,Ž she says, Youre right there, among people who are sick and sometimes dying. Not everyone can do that.Ž Not everyone can ignore the interruptions either, but Ms. Cole seems unfazed when one man in her small audience mutters phrases, a half dozen times, his words loud but unintelligible. She doesnt flinch when any angry-sounding man in a wheelchair yells urgently from far down the hallway, Margie! Margie!Ž She doesnt even look up when Helen, the woman in pink, asks audibly, What time do they have supper here?Ž and, a few minutes later, Im so hungry. I want to eat something.Ž Ms. Pereira fetches a plastic cup of applesauce, and Helen spoons it up con-tentedly. Ms. Cole says nothing, letting her harp speak for her. From the rousing Battle Hymn of the RepublicŽ and When the Saints Go Marching InŽ to the romantic Let Me Call You SweetheartŽ and La Vie en RoseŽ „ which has Ms. Pereira singing along in French „ the music lifts its audience out of the troublesome present and into a sunnier past. Sometimes, patients will request certain tunes because it reminds them of better times,Ž says Ms. Elkan, the harp-therapy teacher. Its amazing what music can do.Ž Ms. Cole saw the effects at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J. and St. Clares Hospital in Denville, where she spent hours each week, making the rounds, playing the music, discovering the vari-ety of reactions. There were patients who wept, patients who sang along, patients who said go away. And she learned that go away was OK: Its probably therapeutic for them. Im the only person they can say no to. They cant say no to their doctor. They cant say no to their nurse. They cant say no to their family. I give them a bit of power back.Ž That was much of her training from 2005 until 2009, when she moved to Florida, following family members and fleeing blizzards. Now, she estimates that 70 percent of her Cloud Nine Harp hours are spent at healthcare facilities, the rest playing for weddings and par-ties. The latter is the more lucrative, earning her $75 an hour, but shes willing to negotiate, she says, for those who can afford only $40 for a half hour. It is her therapy work that plays on her heartstrings. I feel like Im making a connection, making a difference,Ž she says. Like Im making a friend. If I get a smile, that makes my day.Ž She thinks of the patient who thanked her for playing All I Ask of YouŽ from Phantom of the OperaŽ because it had been her wedding song; of the time she played for a terrible trio: a woman who screamed and screamed, another who threatened to throw things, the third arguing with the other two … a session that concluded with the screamer lulled into silence, the bully singing along, the arguments ending. As her weekly hour at Clare Bridge draws to a close, Ms. Cole plays Memo-riesŽ from the Broadway show Cats.Ž Her listeners are silent now, perhaps drawn back into memories of their own. „ For more information, check Laura Coles Web site www.cloudnineharp. com; call her at Cloud Nine Harp, 561249-1176; or e-mail laura@cloudnineharp.com Q HARPFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTO“I feel like I’m making a difference,” says Laura Cole of playing for dementia patients. “It’s still an emerging field.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 TRAVEL B efore Mel Fisher, best known for discovering the 1622 wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha and its sister ship, the Santa Margarita, died, he sat with me in his favorite bar in Key West and described long-lost treasures he planned to pursue. The brawny Key West treasure hunter smiled as he talked and nursed a rum and Coke. A gold chain glittered on the neck of perhaps the worlds greatest treasure hunter. Upon it shone a small golden llama. Mel, who died in December 1998, said it provided a clue to a treasure. (Cleaning out my files recently, I chanced upon my notes of his remarks made after he found the Atocha and the Santa Margarita. After my Key West interview, I returned to Washington, D.C., where my newspaper editor said, Weve had enough treasure stories for awhile.Ž And I forgot about my notes. Now, rereading them after these many years, I still find Mels words fasci-nating so Im at last writing Mels untold treasure story.) Mel fingered the Inca relic as he described its discovery in a crater high in the Peruvian Andes. I was there on vacation, checking out this fellows letter. I get dozens of letters telling me about treasures. This one struck me as being for real.Ž So Mel and his wife, Delores, flew to Peru. There they were taken to a remote Andean area by an Inca Indian who claimed he was a direct descendant of Atahualpa, the Incan emperor killed by Pizarro and his Spanish troops in 1533. In the lake, where I found this llama, is another life-sized, 24-karat, solid gold llama statue, according to this Indian, and a golden statue of his great, great, great grandfather,Ž Mel said. This was one of the spots where he told me a large trea-sure was stashed away.Ž The water was warm and clear, unusual in an area of murky, cold lakes, according to Mel. It was so unusual that the treasure hunter climbed down inside the crater to test the water. Inside his suitcase he con-cealed an Aqua Pulse One metal detector. As he had no diving gear, he put on the headphones and tossed the detector into the water. I was pulling it back to shore, when the thing went WHAM-0, WHAM-O,Ž Mel said. I thought beer cans, then I thought, geeze, there are no beer cans within a couple of hundred miles of here.Ž He asked the young Indian accompanying him to wade into the water and search the sands with his hands. The Indian had no luck. Exasperated, Mel stripped off his clothes and jumped in. I found this little gold llama about three-fourth inches high,Ž he said. So that kind of turned me on. Then I got another reading with the detector. It was a gold ring with two gold hands holding a silver heart.  His mind raced as he examined the golden llama in the thin mountain air. I would say that within 20 minutes I had a complete expedition figured out. I asked the Indian, Where can I get a mask and fins and snorkel? He told me Id have to go to Lima for diving equipment.Ž I thought: Ill go to Lima and rent a tank and regulator so I can stay down an hour or two. Or maybe Ill rent three or four extra tanks. Ill probably need a wet suit and a weight belt and Ill buy a rubber raft. I might as well have an air compres-sor so I can build an air lift.Ž Mel laughed his patented tee-hee-hee, laugh. Then I thought: The hell with it. I better not. The Incas will think its their gold, and sure as hell the government is going to come in and say its their gold. So I bet-ter play it cool and come back with a legal, properly prepared expedition with plenty of protection, money and equipment and personnel. So thats what were planning on doing.Ž Of the Andes, he said, Theres absolutely nothing up there. We might have to use special copters because there isnt much oxygen. I noticed the altitude a lot and I was only up there for three days.  According to Mels Inca guide and documents that Mel obtained, a 700-foot gold chain lies at the bottom of that Andean lake. Mel said, That gold chain was strung around the plaza in Cuzco for Ata-hualpas sons 10th birthday party, when the emperor threw a 10-day party for him. His son got his first haircut, which signi-fied he was becoming a man and would become the next Inca emperor. His father gave him that gold chain for a birthday present. When Pizarro and his conquistadors killed Atahualpa, his son took 2,800 Indi-ans, picked up that chain in the middle of the night, walked off with it and stashed it in a volcano so Pizarro couldnt get it. They stashed neat things with it. They had golden concave mirrors, the larg-est 28 feet across to light up valleys and mountain gorges as part of their religion. When the sun hit the mirror, it lit up the city and the Incas would get up and go to work. The mirrors are supposed to be in there, too, along with a life-sized statue of Atahualpa and a couple of other emperors. Mel compared Incan communication systems to our early Pony Express. Run-ners would run as fast as they could for one kilometer, then pass the baton or whatever on to the next Indian runner. Using this system, daily they brought the emperor fresh fish daily from the Pacific over 15 mountain ranges. In the same way, they spread the word that the emperor was being held for ransom. All the people were told to ransom the emperor with their gold. Women took off golden fingernails, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, gold chains. Hundreds of llamas, each carrying 50 to 100 pounds of treasure traveled to Caja-marca. Pizarro really goofed. After his house was filled up with gold, he killed Atahualpa.Ž When the word spread that the emperor had been murdered, the Incas quickly stashed their treasure. Mel said he was going after two of the major stashes. To further document his case, Mel cited a book written by Pizarros barber. It was like a diary, written about the entire con-quest of the Incas. Pizarro only had 19 men with him when he reached Cajamarca. Two years earlier he had tried to conquer the Incas, but his army got wiped out by dysentery and the fever. On his second expedition, the same thing happened, but 19 of the Spaniards made it through. Those 19 took over the whole Inca Empire.Ž Whats the name of the lake?Thats the secret right now,Ž said Mel, smiling as he took a slow sip of his Cuba Libre. Thats not the only treasure he said he was going after. The big man with the broad shoulders, thinning hair and a sly grin, puffed on a cigarette as his eyes got a far-away look. In Venezuela, were going after Montezumas treasure. The Aztec emperor was killed by Cortez after his conquest of Mexico. I have to keep the location quiet now, but weve got the documents.Ž In Venezuela?Thats what I said.ŽI raised my eyebrows and he continued, In Brazil, we located about 10 shipwrecks in medium to deep water. They should be easily and quickly salvaged. We intend to do a top-rate archaeological project on each one. In Mexico, were going after a couple of Spanish galleons with vast treasures on them, but I cannot give their names or locations for obvious reasons. They are about 150 miles offshore Mexico. Then well continue working on the Atocha and the Santa Margarita, the 1715 fleet, and the 1733 fleet in the central Florida Keys. The first wreck is south of Marathon, and the last one is nearly all the way up to Miami. Its more or less picking up on things I found, but never followed through on. Were going back with new equipment and enough funds and know-how to properly work these wrecks. There are 21 galleons scattered all along the Florida coast. Ive already located 18. Ive got three more to find.Ž He paused. Those three galleons seemed to sail across his mind, another challenge, another puzzle to solve. A woman passed and said, Hi, Mel.Ž He rose, smiled, put his 6-foot gold chain around her neck, and said, This is a money chain from the Spanish galleon Atocha. Each link was like a $100 bill. In the old days they ripped off a link to buy food, drink, a woman, whatever they wanted.Ž After the encounter, Mel sat down and the sun flashed off his golden ring. My ring has a modern mount, but on it is a one-escudo gold coin the size of a dime. Its the first gold coin I ever found. I bought it from the guys and mounted it on this ring. Its like a seed that grew into a money tree. It came from the Sandy Point wreck at Vero Beach. Later on we found the ocean floor paved with thousands of dazzling gold doubloons „ escudos, eights, fours and twos „ and this one escudo coin. Escudos were their money in those days. The eight-escudo piece they called a Span-ish gold doubloon.Ž One secret of Mels success was solid research. Professor Eugene Lyons, a PH.D. from the University of Florida and a research historian for Treasure Salvors, helped Mel zero in on South American treasure sites after his Florida successes. Only now are we beginning to research thoroughly Peru, Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico,Ž Mel said. But when Gene (Lyons) was working in the Archives of the Indies in Seville, he alerted 80 other researchers that we were interested in anything concerned with treasure or ship-wrecks. So now we have a vast library of documents that I havent even looked at yet. We have hundreds of thousands of documents picked from millions of documents. Even today there are gunnysacks of old docu-ments that havent been opened for hun-dreds of years. They are not catalogued, translated or organized.Ž I never did want to give up on anything,Ž Mel said. And the fascination grows.Ž Q Mel Fisher long-lost treasures The un told story of the of COURTESY PHOTOWriter Harvey Hagman with Mel Fisher, right, at the site of reported treasure site in Virginia.“There is something about a treasure that fastens itself upon a man’s mind. He will pray and blaspheme and still persevere, and will curse the day he heard of it, and will let his last hours come upon him unawares, still believing he missed it only by a foot.” – Joseph Conrad BY HARVEY HAGMAN_____________________Special to Florida Weekly

Be especially keen on the combinations of pre-scription pain medications and so-called neutraceuticalsŽ „ over-the-counter sup-plements like glucosamine and omega-3 oils „ that can make life comfortable. Slow down, be patient, be helpful. Youll both feel better for the time you spend with your sweet older dog. Q BY DR. MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORI_______________________________Universal UclickOlder dogs can stay happy, active with your help X Blind dogs : Maintain your blind dogs environment with minimal change. Dogs actually adapt amazingly well when they lose their eyesight „ as long as you dont start rearranging the furniture. If your dog knows his way around your house and yard, and has a walking route that suits him, try to keep these things constant to prevent injuries and put him at ease. X Deaf dogs : For a dog who lives in a soundless world, sudden contact can be unnerving. It can also be dangerous for the person who delivers the shock, since your dog may nip out of fear. Learn how to let your dog know youre coming, and teach any children who have contact how to do so, too. Many dogs are hearing-impaired but not completely deaf, and for those a couple of simple hand claps are enough to get his attention. If your dog is completely deaf, step loudly as you approach him „ your footfalls will cause a vibration that can be felt even if its not heard. X Leaky dogs : If your dog has overnight incontinence, know that the situation probably upsets him even more than it upsets you. Take him out last thing before bedtime, and then pro-vide a water-absorbent barrier in his bedding. You can use a puppy pad, cut-up pieces of a water-resistant mattress Your dog may breeze through years of senior citizenship without any signifi-cant health issues, but sooner or later, age catches up with even the most resilient of canine companions. You may one day discover that your dog cant see or hear anymore, or that hes developed an irritable streak where he didnt have one before. In many cases, the first really distressing issue to come up is incontinence „ an old dog may dribble urine in his bed or in the house „ and sud-denly you have a problem. Any time a new health issue develops, the best course of action is to have it checked out by your dogs veterinarian. And theres this good news: Many prob-lems are treatable at any age, including cognitive dysfunction „ doggy dementia „ which can be eased for many dogs with medication. Time, of course, will not be denied. But even for those things that cannot be aided by your veterinarian, you can take matters into your own hands and help your dog age gracefully and comfortably. Remember, this is an animal who adores you, who lives for your approval and affec-tion. As he begins to lose his health, he needs your assurance more than ever. Some situations you may deal with: PET TALES Easing the challenges of ageWith some adjust-ments on your part, both you and your dog can enjoy life fully, no matter what time throws at you. >> Sheba a 6-year-old spayed female German Shepherd mix weighs 70 pounds.

We see what he could not: clearly a case of object in mirror being closer than it appears. In the Chinese Han Dynasty, from three centuries BCE to the first century CE, Makyoh were popular. These magic mirrorsŽ had a front of bronze polished to a mirror finish, and a back carved with intricate design or sacred image. When light from the mirror side was reflected onto a flat wall surface, the image from the back of the mirror was seen. Before the clarity of scientific understanding, this seemed to be magic. These early mirrors came into scientific and technological maturity in Renaissance Venice. The world would be forever changed with the resultant open-ing of new vision in optics and study of the eye itself. Renaissance artists would paint self-portraits in mirrors, and see the whole world from new perspectives unattainable by the eye alone. In the 17th century, telescopes would be born out of the clarity of Venetian glass. Contemporary science continues the quest with treatises about angles of inci-dence and reflection, with the creation of two-way mirrors. And there are the first surface mirrors, which have the reflec-tive surface above the backing. This is in contrast to second surface mirrors with reflective surface behind the backing. In the first surface mirror the ghosting effect of a faint secondary reflection is absent. This superior clarity is needed in fine telescopes, periscopes and kaleidoscopes. But even more amazing are the musings about the self that reflect new mir-ror visions. Dar-win went to the zoo with a mir-ror, but found the meaning of the reactions of apes to be ambiguous. In the 70s, Gordon Gallup devel-oped a measure of self-aware-ness called the mirror test. Mr. Gallup marked the bodies of various animals and of human babies. Then he observed their behavior in front of a mirror. Would they try to rub the spot off their own bodies if the spot were observed in the mirror? If so, that would seem to be evidence that the subject identifies the mirror image as self. Subjects as diverse as great apes, dolphins, pigeons, ele-phants, magpies and most human babies older than 18 months made such an iden-tification. With a level of obfuscation possible only in Paris, Jacques Lacan, the father of French psychoanalysis, posits the mir-ror stage of development in which the ego is birthed in misunderstanding and alienation „ a fraud that must change as development proceeds. Ill be your mirror Reflect what you are, in case you dont know. Ill be the wind, the rain and the sunset, the light on your door to show that youre home.Ž „ Nico and the Velvet UndergroundRiddle me this: What do Leonardo DaVincis personal writings, the text on the front of an ambulance, and the book Alice found while talking to the white king and queen have in common? Answer thou that all these can only be read in a looking glass, in a mirror. The mystique of mirrors is reflected in many arenas of discourse throughout history. The earliest mirrors were stones polished 6,000 years BCE. And perhaps even before that, creatures looked in pools of water, between drinking and fleeing, scrying new vision of the one looking. These earliest mirrors were not conceived without hazard. There was con-cern about mirrors broken. And there were strategies about grinding and bury-ing mirrors that captured the souls of both the living and the dead. We remember Narcissus, wasted away at the mirroring edge of water in longing MUSINGS f c i t Rx rx@floridaweekly.com TransmogrifyThrough the glass darkly and lightly, may we awaken from sleep to see the beauty of fairest presence in every vision. May we be safe from the onslaught of poisoned apples and poisoned combs and too-tight corsets. May we be spared mirror jealous queens who mistakenly eat the hearts of deer slaughtered out of mercy. May we love all reflection: near or distant, tiny or big, seen or unseen. The fairest is them all. Q „ Rx is the FloridaWeekly muse who hopes to inspire profound mutiny in all those who care to read.

B2 X Florida Weekly graphic designers tallied 13 individual awards at the annual Florida Press Association 2009-2010 Dis-play Advertising Contest, including six for first place and this years best of show. Contest organizers announced the win-ners last week. Various members of the design staff at Florida Weekly were singled out for accolades, both for advertisements and page design. The paper was represented in wide-ranging categories, including auto-motive, non-medical professional services, medical services, furniture, clothing store, entertainment/dining, group promotion, best ad series, and free standing insert. Receiving top honors from the Florida Press Association is testament to our design staffs talent,Ž said Creative Direc-tor Jim Dickerson. We work very hard to give readers an appealing product every week „ through this shared vision it is great to be recognized by winning these awards. I am delighted that we can show-case our designers commitment to qual-ity and give our readers an insight to the talent and professionalism that I get to appreciate everyday.Ž Florida Weekly Presentation Editor Eric Raddatz won for best overall special sec-tion for FW STYLE, and best of show for the Hurricane Guide 2010. I was kind of floored and excited to hear we won the biggie,Ž Mr. Raddatz said. It really is an honor to receive best of show along with first place awards from the Florida Press Association for this year for work in visual presentation. While I believe it is noteworthy, it is simply a healthy byproduct of our commitment to providing intelligent, insightful and unique presentation to our readers of the highest caliber, which is my biggest concern.Ž Jim Dickersons designs for Spago Look Younger, Matter Brothers Furniture, Ginas 7th Ave earned awards.

But New Urban Communities says its easy to go green at its Botanica develop-ment in Jupiter. Why?The Delray Beach company, founded in 1998 by Kevin Rickard and Tim Hernan-dez, uses only in-fill land „ meaning land that already was slated for development and that lies within the community „ no expansion into previously unbuilt areas away from a city center. We go to great lengths to protect the environment,Ž says Jay McConnell, sales manager at Botanica. We wont use raw land and avoid sprawl.Ž The development of Bermuda-style houses „ think pastel colors and hipped roofs „ is capped at 123 single-family homes; up to 44 remain to be sold, accord-ing to Mr. McConnell. The land originally was zoned for industrial use. Location is a reason why the community has been popular. Botanica, just east of Military Trail, is adjacent to Jupiter Medical Center. It is walking distance to a shopping center with a supermarket and restaurants, and an easy bike ride to Abacoa Town Center. Elementary, middle and high schools all are within a mile of the development, and the Scripps Research Institute, Florida Atlantic University and Roger Dean Sta-dium are nearby. The community has more than 60 acres of nature preserves, parks, a community pool, bike paths and nature trails. A large lake sits at the middle of the development. The conservation group 1000 Friends of Florida has recognized Botanica for its environmental sensitivity, as well as its preservation and enhancement of wet-lands, the developer says.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 MONEY & INVESTINGPension fund investors look to timber and farmlandPension and other tax-exempt money is so big that a change in their invest-ment allocation has important implications for numerous sectors of the economy. As opposed to retail investors, who often get into a sector at the tail end of its bull run (as the lofty gains are perceived to be convinc-ing evidence to invest), pension managers are often reallocating midstream. These managers see a new trend which has begun and for which returns are sufficiently posi-tive to warrant approval by oversight and policy setting committees. Tax-exempt money is broadly diversified into equities, real estate, bonds and cash, with percentage allocations targeted. The real property investments made by tax-exempt investors are primarily in the commercial sector as these investors gener-ally stay away from the residential market. Interestingly, besides commercial property, there are a few otherŽ real property groups (specifically farmland and timberland) in which these institutional investors have money at work. These two nontraditional categories have fared very well and will probably see greater allocations of dollars in the future, as good returns are impetus for a greater allocation. Commercial rebound There has been a meaningful recovery underfoot in the commercial sector due to natural market forces. Commercial real estate got clobbered in the Great Recession. Based on national averages, the overall commercial market fell peak (mid-2008) to trough (end of 2009) by about 30 percent. The decline may have been larger than 30 percent in some areass of South Florida, but these are national averages and cover all sectors within commercial. Commercial recovery often lags behind the economy by 12 to 18 months. Based on reports by an industry leader in price and transaction information, there is a recovery under way in the commercial sector. Per the NCREIFs index, the overall commercial real estate market turned red in the third quarter of 2008 and continued with losses through all of 2009. Those were six straight quarters of losses. The year 2010 saw a turn into positive territory for commercial properties and it has continued that way to date. Com-mercial includes: office, hotel, apartment buildings, industrial and retail. A quick comparison of second quarter results shows that the apartment building sector led 2010s second quarter gains, followed by commercial space. Regionally, the greatest pick-up in second quarter 2010 was in the east, followed by the west, then the south and, lastly, the Midwest. The gain for the Southern states was 3.31 percent for the second quarter; in this region, Florida, well known to be very weak, is included with relatively strong Texas. jeannette SHOWALTER CFA jshowaltercfa@yahoo.com O Beyond commercial Pension funds and other tax-exempt investors are not limited to investing in commer-cial property for their portfolios. They also invest in farmland and timberland. Pension funds holding farmland? Absolutely... as do a bunch of hedge funds owning it in their portfolios. NCREIF also tabulates indices for these two groups. Returns since 1992 have been positive in each and every quarter except one (in which the loss was a scant .01 per-cent) since the index was compiled in 1992. (That means 73 out of 74 quarters were positive returns.) And some of the quarters returns were quite hefty. For instance, there was an eye-popping return of 23 percent in fourth quarter 2005. Farmland owners will probably see a big quarterly increase in 2010s third and fourth quarter farmland returns (income and property appreciation) as crop prices for soybean, corn and wheat have recently exploded. Not as strong, but still plenty strong vis-vis commercial property, is timberland. And again, despite the woes in housing, this sec-tor will probably see a big pick-up in prices in the fourth quarter as lumber prices are quickly moving higher.Possibly one of the best analysts for agriculture and timber is Floridas own Shawn Hackett of Hackett Financial Advisors in Boynton Beach. Shawn has nailedŽ virtu-ally every major (and unexpected) move in these sectors in the past year. He called higher prices for the grains in the spring and summer, before the July 4 breakout.Shawn has been calling for higher timber prices long before the recent m ove, with several days trading lock limit.Ž Higher timber prices translate into higher timberland pric-es. But if North American housing demand is the traditional source of demand for North American timber and it is at its lows, from where do the timber buyers hail?Shawn has an interesting spin on timber. Actually, two spins. The first is the buying by the Chinese. Our timber is cheaper than theirs and they want it. As he says, in defer-ence to Paul Revere, The Chinese are com-ing!Ž The differential between their cost and ours is sufficient enough to have them buy North American timber. Secondly, Shawn sees a drop in supply in the future „ maybe not right away, but on the horizon, and possibly already seen by long term investors. Not much reported, yet widespread and devastating, is a beetle infestation in some of Canadas timberland. The ramifications of decreased Canadian timber supply will be felt for a long time. Could this scarcity and pricing pick-up help existing home prices? Its hard to tell, but at least this news is not negative for the hous-ing industry. There are other ways to play timber and farming other than outright land ownership. Talk with your advisers and get their input as to suitability and opportunities that are good for you.

Residents of Botanica live, work and play within walking distance,Ž Mr. McConnell says. As I sit here, I see residents walking to work, and walking home to lunch.Ž To avoid a cookie-cutter appearance, the company varies home elevations and colors, switches out porches and balconies, and incorporates fountains, trellises and specimen trees, to create streetscapes. Native trees are preserved in place or moved on site for a mature look, and native shrubs and other plants are incor-porated into landscaping. By placing garages off alleys behind the homes, architects had space to design spacious front porches. The design is very lending to a closeknit community,Ž Mr. McConnell says. Its an alternative to the larger com-munities.Ž The company builds the walls and floors of its homes in Florida with steel-reinforced concrete to reduce noise from outside, maintenance costs and energy loss. Inside, those houses have flexible floor plans „ those steel-rein-forced floors eliminate the need for load-bearing interior walls. Some homes have garage apartments; others have small swimming pools. All are built using Energy Star appliances to keep utility costs down. Homes, designed by the Kupi-Eliopoulos architectural firm, range from 1,875 square feet to about 3,000 square feet of air-conditioned space. Base prices range from about $320,000 to $420,000. For example, the home Botanica uses as a sales office, a Catalina model, offers four bedrooms and three baths in about 2,500 square feet. The house, which is airy, is connected to its garage by a breezeway. It is available furnished and fully decorated for $469,351. Fees to the homeowner association, operated by Bristol Management, are $180.30 a month, and that covers alarm systems and maintenance of lawns, the community pool and walking paths. Who is buying right now?A combination of young families with kids and retirees,Ž Mr. McConnell says. Plus empty-nesters.Ž And whats the draw?The biggest appeal is the small-community feel,Ž Mr. McConnell says. Residents echo that.Pat Kelly and his wife, Krista, rented a home at Botanica for more than a year before building their own. They moved in this spring. The more time we spent here, the more we enjoyed it,Ž said Mr. Kelly, a broker with HMY Yacht Sales in Jupi-ter. He and Mrs. Kelly, a stay-at-home mother, have four children. Its minutes from the beach, and Publix and Starbucks are a two-minute walk,Ž Mr. Kelly says. He says his family likes the community feel at Botanica. Kids are playing in the streets and parks,Ž Mr. Kelly says. In the last six, seven months [the community] has real-ly come into its own.Ž Its a friendly place, he says.A lot of neighbors sit on their porches and they say hi as you walk by.Ž The lots are a bit small, Mr. Kelly says, but there is plenty of green space otherwise. And the Kellys are pleased with the overall quality of their home. I love the construction,Ž he says. Because we had lived there, we knew changes we wanted to make.Ž Its combination of green practices and innovative design makes Botanica an easy sell. Ive never had a story to tell like this,Ž Mr. McConnell says of the community. But perhaps Mr. Kelly says it best:Theyve done a great job. Were tickled.Ž Q GREENFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOThe conservation group 1000 Friends of Florida has recognized Botanica for its environmental sensitivity, as well as its preser vation and enhancement of wetlands. Foundation for Everglades hosts 10th Annual Cypress seed harvest The Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, which champions the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem, will host the 10th Annual Cypress Seed Harvest on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to noon. It will be held at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge located just west of 441 and south of Boynton Beach Boulevard. Friends and families are invited to join us for our 10th Annual Cypress Seed Harvest,Ž said Nancy Marshall, foun-dation president. This rain-or-shine event is appropriate for all ages, but small children will need to be closely supervised.Ž Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. The Marshall Foundation will provide collection bags, harvesting tools and drinking water, although volunteers are encouraged to bring their own refill-able water bottles to help reduce waste. Older volunteers can also bring ladders and/or rakes to help loosen high hang-ing seeds without damaging trees.

KangaRent recently moved into a 5000-square-foot office at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens. KangaRent was founded by several Palm Beach real estate professionals who saw the rental market was strong and actually starting to grow. There are so many reasons why renting is a good idea, and that is how we knew there was an opportunity for a professional company to specialize in rentals,Ž says Damien Barr, an owner. Renting is an excellent way to gain familiarity with an area without the financial risk and obligation that comes with purchasing. It also offers flexibility with minimal financial commitment. For those whose credit scores are less than perfect, renting offers the tenant an opportunity to save money and repair credit. Homeowners also benefit from renting. Tenants provide a monthly rev-enue stream on the homeowners invest-ment while maintaining the functional-ity of the property Ž KangaRent is available to both renting tenants and landlords in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Ser-vices are free to tenants. Call 561-803-7779, or see www.KangaRent.com.

Q Housing starts edge up in SeptemberNationwide housing starts edged up 0.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 610,000 units in September, due entirely to a 4.4 percent gain in the single-family sector, according to U.S. Commerce Department figures released Oct. 19. Builders are cautiously responding to the small improvement they are seeing in interest among potential home buyers,Ž Bob Jones, chairman of the National Asso-ciation of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder from Bloomfield Hills, Mich., said in a statement. However, as consumer demand for new homes rises, a major limit-ing factor for a housing recovery continues to be builders inability to access credit for new construction.Ž Todays numbers are in line with our latest builder surveys, which indicate that stability is slowly returning to the new-homes market following the declines we saw upon expiration of the home buyer tax credits and the slowing of economic growth this summer,Ž said NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe, also in a statement. Builders are receiving more inquiries from potential customers and are carefully responding to renewed consumer interest, although their limited access to credit for new hous-ing production is definitely hampering this process.Ž All of the increase in housing production in September was due to improvement on the single-family side, which posted a 4.4 percent gain to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 452,000 units … the strongest level since May of this year. Multifamily starts, which tend to exhibit greater volatility on a month-to-month basis, recorded a 9.7 per-cent decline to a 158,000-unit rate following a big increase in August. On a regional basis, starts activity was mixed, with two regions posting gains and two posting declines for September. The Northeast and South registered gains of 2.9 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively, while the Midwest and West registered declines of 8.2 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively. Permit issuance, which can be an indicator of future building activity, declined 5.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 539,000 units in September. This dip was due entirely to a 20.2 percent decline to a 134,000-unit rate on the more volatile mul-tifamily side, while single-family permits remained virtually unchanged, edging up 0.5 percent to a 405,000-unit rate. Regionally, permits fell across the board in September, with the Northeast posting a 1.5 percent decline, the Midwest a 4.3 per-cent decline, the South a 4.7 percent decline, and the West a 10.6 percent decline.

REAL ESTATEA GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 FLORIDA WEEKLYB10 R obb & Stucky Interiors has added a French twist to its stores. The company, which has stores in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton, has added The Paris Shoppe to each of its interior showrooms. The Paris Shoppe will offer French-inspired pieces by such furniture makers as French Heritage, Century, Vanguard and French Laundry. The companys design team recognized a trend toward French loft items, but there was not a place where consumers could find a core collection of that look,Ž Kris Kolar, vice president of interior design, said in a statement. So, at Robb & Stucky, we decided to gather different looks, from French country to more refined and even industrial French styles, and present these fabulous finds in The Paris Shoppe.Ž The designs are by the numbers „ literally. Fabrics are by French Laundry, whose inspiration is letters and numbers printed on French country feed bags. These typographical elements are prominent on several furniture pieces, including an ottoman and throw pillows. Expect a mlange of materials, too. Think distressed woods with dry finishes and tables that incorporate a decoupage technique. The frame of a beach-wood mirror is reminiscent of small pieces of driftwood. Furnishings with a venerable look reveal the woods natural color with white-washed tones and gilded accents. And that touch of the industrial? A barstool in The Paris Shoppe, made by Century Furniture, is displayed as a table. The seat is hand-carved oak with a natural finish and a French iron finished base. There is a side table, also from Century, that is Chippendaleinfluenced. The table features a framed top with inlaid parchment imprinted with antique papers. Some pieces have a more tailored look, such as French tufting on the edges of a loveseat. French caf windows also are part of the setting.

Q LOW BURN THEATRE COMPANY has a lot of lofty reasons for selecting The Rocky Horror ShowŽ to kick off its second season, but co-ar-tistic director Patrick Fitz-water wants to come clean about his chief motive. Really the reason why were doing it is we just want to do a dirty rock n roll show,Ž he concedes. Because right now, youve got Glee, Rent, Spring Awak-ening, the rock n roll musical is right there in everybodys faces again, so why not take it where it really all started, and let todays kids know this is where the rock musicals roots come from.Ž In 1973, an unemployed actor named Richard OBrien wrote a loosely struc-tured musical spoof of B-movies, about an uptight couple, Brad and Janet, who go on an odyssey of sexual liberation at the castle of mad scientist Frank N Furter.

We tell sexist jokes like its a national pastime, and were quick to judge based on gender. Men make fun of female drivers. Women shake their heads and say, Just like a man.Ž For women who have traveled abroad, especially, the American male is an easy target. He cant smooth-talk a woman the way the Italians can, nor can he praise her charms like the French. Hes not as passionate as the Spaniards or as funny as the British. Hell never be as pragmatic as the Germans. But the American man has something many men from other countries dont offer (and not just the fact that he wont wear man-pris): American men have a core respect for women that is difficult to find outside the United States. Theyre taught early to respect their mothers and to look out for their younger sisters. They know they have to protect the women in their lives. This fundamental esteem is cultivated over a lifetime and runs very deep. All complaining aside, American men value their women. The same cant always be said for other cultures. When you step outside the United States, you come across different The underappreciated American man Artis HENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com approaches to the opposite sex. Some-times that means different manners of handling women. On a recent trip overseas, I got my own taste of what its like to be a woman in another culture „ and it was harsh and bitter. When I stepped into an elevator, the male passengers pushed me to the back. When the door slid open at my floor, they cut me off in order to exit first. On the ride back down, I found myself alone with a local man. Where are you headed?Ž he asked.Im going to get something for lunch,Ž I said. He raised his eyebrows and then shook his head. The women here dont eat lunch,Ž he said in a cautionary tone. Oth-erwise, youll get fat.Ž The elevator stopped at the ground floor, and he elbowed his way past me. In a country where courtesy is never extended to women, I suddenly realized the many ways American men are kind and gallant. I thought of all the car doors that have been opened for me in my lifetime, of the many seats offered on crowded subways and buses. While traveling, I fell in with a group of study-abroad students from Michigan. They were heartbreakingly young, more teenagers than adults. There was only one young man in the group, Devin, and he had designated himself the protector. He went with me to the store at night and then SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS“...The women here don’t eat lunch,” he said in a cautionary tone. “Otherwise, you’ll get fat...” t was harsh and n to an e l evator, s hed me to the o pen at m y floor, o exit first. n I f ound mysel f d ?Ž he asked. t hin g for lunch,Ž s an d t h en s h oo k h e r e d o nt e at nar y tone. Othat t h e g roun d wa y past me. o urtes y is never udd en l y rea l ize d n men are k in d a ll the car doors f or me in m y e ats offered on ses. in with a g roup f rom Michi g an. i n g ly youn g a d u l ts. ng afterward escorted me home. He was careful to walk on the traffic side of the street. If we stopped for sweets or fruit juice at one of the local stands, he insisted on paying. Devin was cute in a young-pup sort of way, but the most appealing thing about him was that par-ticular brand of American chivalry. He was neither dashingly sophisticat-ed like Euro-pean men nor sexy and suave like Latin men. But he was polite and forthright, kind and generous. Just like an Ameri-can man. Q

Mr. Whitburn has published more than 100 books based on Billboard charts, including The Billboard Book of Top 40 Country HitsŽ and The Billboard Book of Top 40 R&B and Hip-Hop Hits.Ž Last released in 2003, the new edition of The Billboard Book of Top 40 HitsŽ has been expanded and updated, including complete chart infor-mation, bios for the artists, lists of record holders, top artists by decade, and, of course, a complete list of number one singles from 1955-2009. Although the Billboard chart data is important, its the trivia that makes this book so much fun. For example, did you know that Janet Jackson scored an impressive 30 Top 40 hits „ one more than her superstar brother Michael, or that of Madonnas 12 No. 1 hits, her 1994 single, Take a Bow,Ž held the spot the longest, seven weeks? Reading through the decade-by-de-cade list of hits is both nostalgic and informative. The list from the first decade, from 1955-1959, includes such classics as Dont Be CruelŽ and Hound DogŽ by Elvis Presley, Memories Are Made of This,Ž a Dean Martin standard, and The Platters My Prayer.Ž Incidentally, the No. 1 hit of 1955 was Let Me Go Lover,Ž as recorded by Joan Weber.Mr. Whitburn is to be commended for this excellent reference that is sure to bring back memories of high-school dances and that first big romance played out to the soundtrack of American music. If you remember the first time you heard YMCAŽ by the Village People or sighed to True LoveŽ by Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby, do yourself a big favor and get this book.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 better there than on Broadway a year later, where the show closed after only 45 performances. It was after the release of the 1975 movie version, The Rocky Horror Picture Show,Ž which became an audience participation cult hit, that Mr. OBriens modest show became mega-successful. The movies legendary status has its upside and down side for a stage troupe like Slow Burn. While the Rocky Hor-rorŽ phenomenon all but guarantees an audience for the show, the cults familiarity with the material can stunt a directors creative impulses. Mr. Fitzwater, who is staging this production, scoffs at the idea of the burden. Im putting away the movie, not com-paring it to the stage show, but explor-ing how I would mount the stage show for its own sake,Ž he says. For fans of the movie who will expect its iconic images, Mr. Fitzwater adds, Oh, theyre there. Were giving them the image, but in the same minute that they recognize it, the image will flip. And theyll go, Hey, wait a minute. Ž Mr. Fitzwaters artistic partner, Matthew Korinko, who plays the shows narrator, says, Were not going to imi-tate. Just giving them the movie onstage would not engage their minds as much.Ž Weve definitely added some new twists to it,Ž claims Fitzwater. As in character development, because the characters were very one-dimensional. But we really looked at Janet and Brad and the journey that they are both on. Brad really goes through some things where he has to meet the challenge and where Janet looks at him like hes not the provider that he thought he was going to be. These things were always there, they just got lost in the production values. And were dragging it out, so to speak.Ž Patrick has a really interesting take on this show, so unlike the movie,Ž says Alexa Cappiello, who plays Janet. Its the same material, but we take it in a new direction. I think people who know and love the movie will appreciate what were doing to it. And its live theater, which I think is always better than movies.Ž Still, the movie version of Rocky HorrorŽ has had a lasting effect on the theatrical experience. Performers of the show now have to be prepared for an assault of the movies ritual audience participation elements. Or else. Veterans of midnight screenings of the movie know all the snarky respons-es to hurl back at the actors, as well as the physical objects „ from toast to rice to undergarments „ to throw at the silver screen. Is Slow Burn ready for a similar barrage? Yes, to the extent of the performers safety,Ž says Mr. Fitz-water, sounding a little hesitant. Limiting the audiences enthusiasm can be tricky. I come out at the begin-ning and give a curtain speech telling the audience that there are rules to this game that were about to play. And as long as we all play in the sandbox nicely,Ž no one should be involved in a mishap, insists the director. Were encouraging them to buy the prop kit at the theater, which is designed for safety,Ž he says. The drama depart-ment at West Boca Community High School „ where Slow Burn performs „ is selling an actor-friendly kit as a fundraiser. There has been a moratorium declared on wedding rice, no water pistol rain showers and the kits will contain glow sticks instead of cigarette lighters. It will be Rocky Horror, but its going to be classier, if you can picture that,Ž says Mr. Korinko. Its going to be more Boca.Ž Going even further out on the limb, Slow Burn will be performing the show at midnight on Saturday, even if most of Boca Raton is asleep by 10 p.m. We have no idea what the turnout is going to be for the midnight shows, but were going to do them and it is what it is,Ž shrugs Fitzwater. Theres a line in the show about an action replay. Frank says it about the sexual encounters hes having. So if you come once and want to see the show again at midnight, you can get a ticket for 50 percent off.Ž The late-night performances are a reach for the Holy Grail of South Flor-ida theater „ trying to attract a young audience. Well have tables set up at all the colleges, selling tickets, encourag-ing them to go to the midnight shows,Ž reports Mr. Fitzwater. To the theaters surprise, though, Rocky Horror ShowŽ is proving popu-lar with senior ticket buyers too. Actu-ally, our group sales picked up a group for the first time ever from the retire-ment communities, like 100 tickets from Century Village,Ž says Mr. Korinko. I think theyre more excited than any-body.Ž Maybe there are a lot of theatergoers like Michael Kogan of Hollywood, 69, who called recently for tickets to the final midnight performance. I want the one where hopefully the cast is the most outrageous,Ž he explains. But Mr. Kogan inquired if it would be safe for him to attend. I said to them, Protect me, because I know theres a tradition there. They beat up on people if they find that youre a newbie. I said, Look, Im a senior. Have an usher standing nearby in case they really give me the razz. Its pretty hard not to stand out when youre bald and almost 70. Ž No, Mr. Kogan acknowledges, he did not ask any of his friends to join him and his wife at the show. I dont know anyone thats this nuts. Im a little far out. Once a hippie, always a hippie.Ž After producing Bat BoyŽ and AssassinsŽ in its first season, Slow Burn is no stranger to risk-taking. But a combination of the goodwill the group earned with those shows and the natu-ral audience for The Rocky Horror ShowŽ could mean its largest audiences yet. Each one is getting better, were really finding our feet,Ž says Mr. Fitzwa-ter. The talent is coming out in droves now to be in our shows, and it looks like the audiences are following.Ž Q HORRORFrom page 1 >> THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, Slow Burn Theatre Company at West Boca Community High School, 12811 West Glades Road, Boca Raton.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 A&E C5 FLORIDA WEEKLY Old people kicking ass.Just reading that is bound to bring a smile to your face. Sure, weve seen Bruce Willis blow things up for years. But Morgan Freeman? John Malkovich? Dame Helen Mirren with a machine gun? Thats a sight to see. Unfortunately, once the kitschy nov-elty wears off, theres not much more to see in RED,Ž a one-note action comedy with a paper-thin story. Mr. Willis plays Frank, a retired CIA special-ops agent now living in complete boredom in Cleveland. He gets his kicks from working out and flirting with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) at the Social Security office. Life is good, life is dull, life is about to get very interesting once again. After hes attacked in his home, Frank learns that he and other mem-bers of the CIAs REDŽ (Retired Extremely Dangerous) list have been marked for death. And so he travels the country getting the gang back together: Theres Joe (Mr. Freeman), who has stage four cancer and lives in a retirement home; Marvin (Mr. Malkovich), who was given daily doses of LSD for 11 years as part of a mind control experiment; and Vic-toria (Ms. Mirren), who really, really likes to shoot people. Why theyre being targeted by CIA higher-up Cynthia Wilkes (Rebecca Pidgeon) and her minion William Cooper (Karl Urban) remains a mys-tery far too long, so suffice to say the retirees know something about a mission gone awry in the early 80s that could compromise a cur-rent political figure. There are also Russian operatives, love stories and enough 360-degree shots to make you dizzy. The action is fun „ especially as the elder bad-asses break into the CIA to find out whos after them and why „ and the visual effects are adequate. The performances from the notable cast are fine, but Mr. Malkovich is clearly having the most fun as yet another wacko eccentric. Him carrying around the pig might seem silly, but it has a great payoff. Joyful as it is, director Robert Schwentkes movie never fulfills its promise of total wink-wink cheeky glee. Or to put it another way, the story by Jon and Erich Hoeber (based on the graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner) is too thin for anything to really matter. We watch and say Wow! Look at Mirren fire away!Ž and Malkovich is such a weirdo!Ž rather than have those elements be an ingrained part of the story. When only the novel-ties stand out as memorable, its a problem. REDŽ clearly knows what it is and what it wants to be, but somewhere along the line, someone forgot to offer more than a marketing hook. It will leave you entertained and unful-filled „ a hollow victory considering the delight it could have been.

Days and nights packed with live music, film events and interactive goodies, SXSW is a magnet for hipsters sporting the facial hair pattern of the month, wandering the streets from show to show, noses buried in their smart phones, texting and emailing and trying to avoid smacking into each other. Despite having to make hard choices about what band, film, technology, party, restaurant, bar, caf, or food truck is next to check out, the most common ques-tion I heard besides do you know any-one that can get me into the Motrhead show?Ž (full disclo-sure: it was usually me asking that one) was have you got an iPhone charger?ŽI didnt: At the time, I had an HTC G1, a phone that allowed me to carry a spare battery that I could swap out all by myself. There was no such joy for iPhone users though, most of whom spent vast amounts of time tethered to wall sockets at parties, forego-ing free booze and swag in order to check their email and figure out where they were supposed to be next. The huge popularity of the iPhone is understandable: technology writers have worn out many a thesaurus (in my fantasy world, writers still have actual books) looking for new superlatives to describe its wonders, but perhaps not enough discussed is how it might work for average users in real-life settings, something often lacking in articles about all three leading smart phone platforms „ iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android. Most people know that they all offer email access, social media apps (because all the high school acquaintances you havent seen in 20 years really do want to know what youre doing every minute of every day), some form of GPS map-ping, web browsing, and the ability to run additional applications just like a big-boy computer. But if you want to know which you can actually live with, rather than which is best suited for a Mountain Dew-addicted blogger, you need to look beyond the specs. Apple iPhone (iOS)A key reason Apples stock price recently broke the $300-per-share bar-rier, the iPhone has a beautiful interface, tight integration with Mac OS, and great multimedia support. Its also very shiny, and thus a good choice for cats. But its not all unicorns and sausage gravy in the world of iPhones. The two most often-heard complaints: wireless carrier choices are limited to AT&T, making Steve Jobs the Henry Ford of smart phones (you can have any color, as long as its black), and the walled gar-denŽ approach, in which no one gets in or out without an Apple-issued passport.While such tight control does help Apple ensure a consistent user experience, it limits choices iPhone users can make regarding what apps theyre allowed to run on the phones they just dropped a few Benjamins on. For example, Apple still wont allow the Google Voice app on iPhones, so while a user can forward a Google Voice number to an iPhone, the app allowing outbound calls from the number is a no go, sorry pally. And potential iPhone converts should keep a few more things in mind: theres no easy way to change batteries; the charg-ing and data cable has a proprietary con-nector that leads to panicky questions at music conferences; and holding an iPhone 4 in a certain way (as in: with your left hand) can caused the signal to completely disappear (Steve Jobs response: dont hold it that way, or buy an Apple case).BlackBerry (BlackBerry OS)They dont call em CrackBerries for nothing. President Obama had to be physically restrained by more than three dozen Secret Service agents in body armor when they took his away (pesky national security issues). BlackBerry handsets offer pushŽ email, excellent battery life, a USB port for charging and syncing, and are available from all major wireless carriers. And then theres Unli-censed Mobile Access. With a UMA-enabled phone, users in fringe areas no longer have to wander their yards or sit on their roofs to make calls; their phones can automatically and seamlessly connect to a specified WiFi network and then make and receive calls just as they would anywhere else, and with perfect reception. Downsides? BlackBerry sync software doesnt support Google products (Google does make a sync program, though) or the native Windows calendar. Also, the BlackBerry app store is smaller and more productivity focused than the Apple or Android app stores, so if youre inter-ested in mind-blowing games or silly apps like a decibel meter, you may not be happy here. And there are two other big issues you need to look at if youre thinking of going BlackBerry (from which you may never come BackBerry): not all models sup-port 3G (thatd be fast data) networks, and some lack GPS receivers. GPS-less phones get your location from the closest cell tower, a lame and inaccurate tech-nique that kills the ability to get turn-byturn directions or call in an effective air strike. So if you need fast web answers or tend to get lost a lot, research your specific model before buying (carrier employees get this one wrong a lot).Android Handsets (Android OS)The Google-authored open source operating system has been capturing smart phone market share at a ridiculous rate, primarily due to two huge, unique positives. First, Android is open source, so its easy to develop apps without worry-ing about a dictatorial gatekeeper who decides what can, or should run on a spe-cific phone. Users make their own deci-sions about the apps they want on the phone they just bought, and the Android Market has a large selection of excellent choices. Second is the constant, wireless, seamless sync with Google online offerings. For people who depend on Gmail, Google Contacts, and Google Calendar, this is an absolute killer feature; everything syncs almost immediately between Android phones and data in the Google cloud. So the contact information from that person you met at, say, a three-for-one margarita happy hour will be available immediately at your Google account, accessible from any computer, any time, like it or not. The same goes for calen-dar entries and email: whats online at your Google account is mirrored on your phone. There are no wires required, and no need to tell it to sync: it just happens at intervals you can specify. Bonus: if you lose your phone, your replacement phone immediately picks up all that information, minimizing the chance for data loss.While these features are available to varying degrees on iPhones and Black-Berry handsets, theyre enabled via a Google sync program that has been known to occasionally exhibit bizarro-world failures to sync properly. Android downsides vary from phone to phone, as there are a number of manufac-turers building handsets around the OS. And that is the source of the biggest area of complaints: many of them write user interfaces that sit on top of the base OS and may not release updates as quickly as Google releases new versions of Android. Right now though, grabbing an Android phone that ships with version 2.1 or bet-ter should make you a happy camper. Check battery life and connection port specs on a per-phone basis if those issues are important to you (and they should be). Finally, you should know that its required that you have a Google account to sync to; you cant even activate an Android phone without one. Of course, thats the whole point, so its hardly a downside.In brief: X iPhone: Pros: interface, integration, multi-media support, shininess Cons: battery issues, walled garden,Ž reception problems, proprietary cable Get it if youre all the way in the Mac camp and dont mind leaving interface and app decisions to Apple. X BlackBerry: Pros: messaging, battery life, USB port, multiple carriers, UMA support Cons: screen size, smallest app store, some lack 3G and true GPS, weak sync in some cases Get it if you need the battery life, UMA support, or are in an enterprise environ-ment that supports it. X Android: Pros: Open source, fantastic sync with Google products, excellent app choices, a huge selection of styles, manufacturers and carriers Cons: battery life can be weak, lack of regular OS updates in some cases, Google account required Get it if you want power and flexibility, especially if you are an avid user of Google products. Id still carry one if it supported UMA. Q „ Bradford Schmidt writes a column on meat, technology and music, or a mashup thereof.

Indiantown Road, Jupiter>>Cost: $23 (subscribers), $29 (non-subscribers) >>Info: (561) 575-2223 in the know The one-man show is the impoverished stepchild of the theater. But every now and then a performance comes along that is so compelling that it totally masks the limita-tions of the genre. Think of Robert Morse in Tru.Ž Think of Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight,Ž who helped popularize the solo stage biog-raphy. And now add the larger-than-life, takeno-prisoners performance by Jim Bro-chu as Zero Mostel in the award-winning Zero Hour,Ž at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre through Sunday. Well-researched and cleverly written by Brochu „ whose past works include The Last SessionŽ and Big Voice: God or Merman?Ž „ the show emphasizes the dark, dramatic milestones in Mostels life and career. But Brochu makes sure that we are never far from a leavening quip or groan-worthy gag from the burly comedi-an-actor-blacklist victim. After all, Brochus Mostel is performing for the benefit of a young, nave New York Times reporter, who comes to interview him and has to suffer a barrage of the sub-jects good cop-bad cop fawning attention and volcanic abuse. The year is 1977, just before Mostel is scheduled to head to Philadelphia to star in The Merchant,Ž a revisionist view of Shakespeares Shylock. But within a month, before that play ever opens, Mostel would be dead of an aneurysm at the age of 62. The setting of Zero HourŽ is Mostels humble art studio, his refuge into the world of his painting, which he considers a higher calling than mere acting. As the cur-tain rises, he is hidden behind his easel, but when he comes into view, Brochu earns an audible gasp from the audience for his uncanny resemblance to Mostel. The similarities continue with the performers vocal impersonation, his stud-ied gestures and facial mugging. Brochu weaves all this with a high-energy delivery that is probably as exhausting for the audi-ence as it is for him to maintain. Along the way, we learn about his testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, with both deadly serious and puckish excerpts from it, and hear about his resulting 10-year drought of work for alleged Communist leanings. Also vividly recalled is his bitter feud with director Jerome Robbins over the latters cooperation with Congress in the naming of names, and their later begrudging col-laboration on A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the ForumŽ and Fiddler on the Roof.Ž Probably less well known is the story of Mostels crippling collision with a city bus on an icy New York street, leading to the near amputation of his left leg. Mostel had probably too large a performance style for the movies, but he made more than 25 films. They are mentioned offhandedly here, including his towering comic turn in The Producers,Ž a film for which he insists he has nothing but dis-dain. Even those who are very familiar with Mostel are bound to learn a few things about him, in this entertaining couple of hours, even if it is a one-man show.

By Linda Thistle + Place a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine. + Moderate ++ Challenging +++ ExpertPuzzle Difficulty this week: Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont be surprised if you suddenly hear from someone from your past who wants to contact you about the possibility of renewing a long-dormant (if not dead) relationship. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to check over what went right and what went wrong with recent efforts. This can provide valuable lessons for proj-ects that will be coming up soon. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Dealing with people who feel theyre always right about everything might be a problem for some. But the savvy Archer should be able to deflate their oversize egos. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This week favors a balance between the demands of your work and your need for fun timeouts. Taking breaks helps restore and keep your energy levels high. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) There could be an occasional setback in what youre working on. But look at them as lessons on how to do better as you move along. More supporters turn up to cheer you on. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Although a more positive aspect influences this weeks course, you still need to be sure that those who will work with you have no reason to work against you. Good luck. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19 ) Deciding to work out that pesky prob-lem (even though you might have been bored, bored, bored with it) should be paying off right about now. Expect to hear some very welcome news very soon. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Unexpected news might cause you to rethink a previous conclusion. Dont be bullheaded and try to bluff it out. Make the needed change, and then take a bow for your objectivity. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Money-matters should be considered as you continue to work out your holi-day plans. This is a good time to scout out discounts before demand for them outstrips their availability. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A calm period early in the week helps you complete most, if not all, of your unfinished tasks. A new project appears by midweek, and this one could carry some big career poten-tial.

Zuccarellis, a traditional Southern Italian restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens, has familial ties to the original in West Palm Beach. It is run by Olimpia Zucca-relli, who brings her parents recipes to the restaurant. Its actually a two-part restaurant, with a casual pizzeria across the courtyard of the PGA Commons West where the main dining room occupies a corner spot. Courtyard dining is an option, at patio tables and at the bar outside, but the wind was whipping in advance of a front and rain threatened so it was no contest. A friendly host seated us promptly in the front dining room. There are two rooms of tables „ the back one can be used as a party room „ but few diners were brav-ing the weather and things were quiet. Our server, Soro, proved professional and friendly throughout, offering sugges-tions and explaining the dishes as a chef might „ clearly familiar with the prepa-rations and ingredients. A second server fumbled a bit on the wine offerings. Yes, we wanted wines, and would like to see the list. The server offered to tell us what was available instead. Turns out the list was being rewritten, and after some verbal wran-gling, we decided on the Trinchero Cab-ernet, at $8 a glass. The Mozzarella Carozza (mozzarella in a carriage) ($12.45) proved a terrific start to the meal. The server described it as grilled cheese, Italian style.Ž Two thick slices of house-made focaccia were stuffed with a thick slice of fresh moz-zarella. The whole affair was lightly bat-tered in an egg dip, and sauted just until the cheese gave up its firmness „ not to the ooze point. That alone would have satisfied us, but along came its sauce „ an olive and anchovy mixture with fresh pomodoro. Before you think you dont like anchovies, take it from Soro „ Its subtle „ you really cant tell theres much anchovy there. Just enough to give it depth and an interesting back flavor.Ž I couldnt have put it better. This was a deliciously simple, yet sophisticated alternative to the so-what marinara most restaurants serve alongside the dish. We polished it off using extra focac-cia from our bread basket. The entrees were equally flavorful. From a wide selection of pasta specialties we landed on a Rigatoni Romano „ fat rigatoni noodles set in a light tomato sauce with mushrooms, cheeses and the best sausage weve had in a long while. Turns out Ralph, Olimpias dad, makes the sausages in-house from pork butts he trims up, then spices before stuffing into their cases. They are slightly sweet, with just enough heat to notice, and with a nice touch of fennel. The pork lends just the right fla-vor against the tomatoes. We ate carefully to make the sauce and sausages come out even. The Chicken Arrabiata ($20.45) „ tender slices of breast meat over fresh mushrooms, in a light sauce with capers and tomatoes, with an added bite of hot pep-pers „ pleased our hot pepper lover. It, too, was served with pasta, this time a cavatelli „ small pieces of dough rolled from a machine that folds it slightly onto itself. The folds capture and hold the thin sauce or soup its typically served with. The huge hot pepper served on the side of the bowl had a hot bite, but not so much it wasnt edible. From a list of traditional seafoods „ calamari, fruitta di mare, scampi and cioppino, we chose a big bowl of Mussels ($19.45) in a gar-licky wine sauce as the interactive dish of the night. First, we were assured they were fresh, and since Soro had not led us wrong, we ordered. A choice of sauces „ Marinara or Garlic-wine are offered. Bits of garlic laced the wine and butter in the bowl; we sopped that up with extra bread once we went through all the fat coral-pink mussels from Northeast Atlantic waters „ at least two dozen. At that point of near over-fill, dessert was a debate „ yes or no. But a house-made Tiramisu ($7) was touted as one of the best in town. Weve had sev-eral bests in townsŽ and were somewhat skeptical, but we ordered one for the table. This one was light and fluffy, but could have used a bit more coffee flavor. Still, it ranked pretty high. Espressos ($2.75) were a tasty finish; we lingered and chatted with the staff about the restaurants, and were given menus for the pizza parlor across the way. Both are being outfitted for the season with new linens and the new wine list. We just happened to come on the cusp of the change, and tables lacked cloths, but we were assured it would all be in place by the next week.Well definitely be back „ even if only to have a glass of vino and the Mozzarella Carozza „ while listening to the singer they frequently feature, doing Rat Pack riffs and more, on weekends.
