www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 An informal poll of my household (including Catus, the cat, using tail-up for yes and tail-down for no) finds con-clusively that polls are bunk. A clear 66.6 percent of us agree, with 33.3 percent (my fair-minded wife) indicating that SOME polls are bunk and 0.1 percent (the moth resting just inside the front door) undecided. An overwhelming 99.9 percent concur that polling has gotten completely out of hand, and we are working on the moth to win it over. In an information-sharing, resultswatching, ever-more-numerical and instant-acting multi-media world, polls are on a roll. They are also in your face. Look anywhere, news media, colleges and research organizations, myriad web sites, government and business, demog-raphers galore, all are busy polling the blue blazes out of any and all. The results sound so authoritative. HereÂs one: Nine out of 10 doctors agree. Hey, maybe they agree to dis-agree! Try this bygone plug for a ciga-rette: Four out of five doctors prefer Camels. (ÂYeah,ÂŽ a wag on a web site, tvtropes.org, responds, Âand the other one prefers women.ÂŽ). Polls and poll results are, of course, also a marketing tool, not just a way to tap current or potential voters or cus-tomers but a featured media attraction, something like crosswords or astrology or the latest movie star scandal. Wow, did you see that 99 out of 100 of us are in favor of breathing? And they give the comforting illusion that somebody, the unseen and thus possibly infallible pun-dits, actually understand whatÂs hap-pening out here and, even more, that what the public thinks, what WE think, actually matters. The reality is something else. No interest is better served than self-inter-est. And most polls are harnessed to a philosophical or political or commer-cial engine. All too often, they arenÂt playing fair. Try this book: Darrell HuffÂs 1954 classic ÂHow to Lie with Statistics.ÂŽ ItÂs a cautionary trove of tricks of the trade, on the soft thinking and loaded ques-tions and hidden motives underlying the comparative blocks and pie charts, the results that seem etched-in-stone. Pollsters continue to prove that you find what you look for, that the answers all too often are shaped by the ques-tions. Want to turn a tiny difference into high drama? Just keep the numbers the same and reduce the grid, or the period of time. A big influence on polling mania is market research, a pursuit that boils all of us down to our preferences. We are polled not only on what we buy and prefer but also on our values and life-styles, as defined by our activities and patterns of behavior, as expressed in answers to somebodyÂs questionnaire.In the instant-answer age, we donÂt even have to THINK about it. Move the mouse, click the clicker, and YOU have registered YOUR choice. Does our choice make one bit of difference to anyone but us? Well, itÂs part of a num-ber that somebody can wield in making some kind of argument, injecting anoth-er molecule of manufactured drama into an otherwise dreary existence.A polling onslaught is already building toward the next election cycle; in the meantime, we have sportscasting. This endless, daily rant has escalated into duels of numbers and opinions, distractions from the action on the field. Then thereÂs the couldÂve-mightÂve school. I keep waiting for ÂIf the Civil War were fought today, who would you root for?ÂŽ I took a class in public opinion, once, from Dr. James Lemert at the Univer-sity of Oregon, and the first thing he taught us is that many popular polls are shoddily done. Their flaws include vague focus, stunted sample, slanted questions, self-selecting respondents. None of that shows in the simple hard numbers that spill out for us to digest. Consider what weÂre given to choose from. Suppositions. Generalizations. Labels. Party nominees. We can pick from a list, but we canÂt choose how the list is put together, canÂt dissect the assumptions underneath, canÂt question the questions. Has any poll, in itself, ever made a real difference? Maybe. They do influence opinion leaders and decision-makers. If repeat-ed often enough, they can become accepted truths. I keep thinking of a quote attributed to the 19th century British prime minister Benjamin Dis-raeli: ÂThere are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.ÂŽ WeÂre suckers to think that any pollster gives a hoot-or-holler about what each of us thinks. They want our col-lective attention, our vote, our money. From our end, maybe we just need to fool ourselves into feeling significant. In a world swirling with threats, actual and imagined, maybe we just want to anchor ourselves in hard numbers, clear percentages, even if they are no better than pin-the-tail on the pollster. Individually, we need a little attention. The kind of attention polls give us, though, strips us of individual humani-ty. The distinct universe of each human personality, make-up, experience, soul, is pitched into the hopper as the binary numbers of yea-or-nayers and comput-ers. Are you a 1 or a 0? Either way, in this system, we donÂt add up to much. Professor Lemert, I know, would take me to task. Statistical research, he would say, is the fiber in the social fabric, the tie that binds. He believes in the power of public opinion, properly polled. He also knows all the angles. For now, IÂm polling my household on the subject. Two of us have our thumbs down. The moth has flown. The cat, I see, has chosen to sleep. Q COMMENTARY My poll would show that 10 out of 10 of you are reading this tim NORRIS O email@example.com

For crying out loud, the least this guy can do is stay awake while the boss is talking. Later, I heard Mr. ObamaÂs speech in its entirety. Joe, you are due an apology.Mr. ObamaÂs oration on our budget crisis was the verbal equivalent of an IV drip filled with Ambien. President Obama earned a reputation during the 2008 campaign for what Washington pun-dits liked to call Âtowering rhetoric. Since then, Âcowering rhetoricÂŽ has become the norm. Gone are the artful phrases and soaring metaphors. A typical presidential address these days is little more than pedestrian political blabbering. Like an aging base-ball star whose reflexes are shot, Mr. Obama can no longer hit the fast ball when he is on the stump. Mr. ObamaÂs descent into bumbling phrases and oblique b.s. is made all the more disturbing by the fact that we are coming off eight years of reeking rhetoric from the Bush administration. I will not flog the dead horse that is George W.Âs speechifying. Those sometimes painful, sometime hilarious memories are still fresh in our minds. And as for Dick Cheney, what can you say about a guy whose sinister sneer, guttural growl and mean-spiritedness are his trademarks? Even when delivering the most benign anecdote, Mr. Cheney calls to mind a sadistic parole board chairman who delights in informing desperate cons that they will be guests of the state for another 20 years. But letÂs set aside the misadventures of Mr. ObamaÂs tongue-tied predecessor and focus squarely on the here and now. When a nation faces the challenges that we do today, leadership Â… strong leader-ship Â… is needed to tamp the fear and anxiety that is abroad in the land. Part of being a strong leader is being a strong communicator. Whatever you thought of their policies, presidents like FDR, Ron-ald Reagan and Bill Clinton (who did well if there was someone available to wrest the microphone from his hands after 30 minutes or so) knew this instinctively. My first inkling of Mr. ObamaÂs inability to rise to the occasion verbally came during his inaugural address, which was liberally laced with bromides and hack-neyed verbosity. ÂAll are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to strive for hap-piness.ÂŽ Can I get a big Âamen!ÂŽ on that one? DidnÂt think so. Mr. ObamaÂs next historic moment came when he delivered his speech in Cairo in June of 2009. This was another grand opportunity, and to again use a baseball metaphor, he whiffed. Given the enormity of the time and place, I think most of us expected better. Much better. There was nothing in it that even came close to Mr. ReaganÂs clarion call in Ber-lin in 1987: ÂMr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!ÂŽ Nor did Mr. Obama approach John F. KennedyÂs memorable eloquence, which also was part of an address in Ber-lin: ÂAll free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and, therefore, as a free man I take pride in the words ÂIch bin ein Berliner!ÂÂŽ Harry C. McPherson, who wrote speeches for Lyndon Johnson, succinct-ly nailed Mr. ObamaÂs desultory perfor-mance in Egypt. ÂI canÂt tell you Â… and this is one of the shortcomings of the kind of speech (Mr. Obama) makes Â… I canÂt quote anything, or cite anything, off the top of my head,ÂŽ said Mr. McPherson. Neither can I, and IÂll bet you canÂt, either. Mr. Obama has drawn inevitable comparisons to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which is ludicrous. Yes, both won the Nobel Peace Prize, but in Dr. KingÂs case it was deserved. He had suffered and sac-rificed in ways that I doubt Mr. Obama could have endured. And when it came to using oratory to further a cause and prick the consciences of those who opposed him, Dr. King knew no peer. Most Americans harken to Dr. KingÂs ÂI Have a DreamÂŽ address on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial when they want to discuss his ability to move an audience Â… and indeed an entire nation. It is, of course, one of the great speeches of our time. No argument there. Yet, the one that gives me goose bumps still was the impromptu outpouring of raw emotion that he delivered in Mem-phis on April 3, 1968, the eve of his assas-sination. He was ill that night, and it showed. Sweat poured from his forehead and cheeks and drenched the starched collar of his dress shirt. His eyes were clouded with a glaze of fever. The weather was violent; tornadoes circled the city. Enor-mous claps of thunder shook the walls and rafters of Mason Temple as Dr. King spoke. It was as if the gods were hurling bolts from ab ove, demanding that we listen closely to what proved to be the great manÂs last speech. ÂI want to you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land,ÂŽ he said in conclusion. ÂSo IÂm happy tonight. IÂm not worried about anything. IÂm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!ÂŽ The crowd of about 3,000 exploded, and Dr. King, spent physically and emo-tionally, collapsed into the arms of Ralph David Abernathy, his most trusted aide. Will we ever see the like from Barrack Obama? DonÂt count on it. The president is more professor than preacher. His vaunted coolness is in desperate need of some fire, but Mr. Obama seems totally incapable of summoning the spark need-ed to ignite it. Sleep on, old Joe. Q I have a dream! Obama delivers a stirring speech bill CORNWELL O email@example.comThe size of government threatens the American way of life as we know it. The solution is straightforward Â„ cut govern-ment. A vibrant grass-roots movement insists that it happen, and Washington is lousy with rival plans for how to go about it. The social threat to the American way of life is as dire, if not more so. But it is more insidious, and more complicated. No grass-roots movement has mobilized against it, and no high-profile bipartisan commission is suggesting remedies. Yet it proceeds apace, all but ignored except in the lives of Americans. Among those trying to sound the alarm is author and thinker Charles Murray of the American Enterprise Institute. In a bracing lecture on ÂThe State of White America,ÂŽ he notes that America has long had an exceptional civic culture. ÂAmerica is coming apart at the seams,ÂŽ he warns. ÂNot the seams of race or eth-nicity, but of class.ÂŽ Murray takes whites as his subject to avoid the question of whether racism is responsible for the problem he describes, namely the Âemergence of classes that diverge on core behaviors and values.ÂŽ Murray identifies what he calls the Âfounding virtues,ÂŽ such as marriage, industriousness and religiosity, which have always been considered the social basis of self-government. He looks at whites aged 30-49 and divides them into the top 20 percent socio-economically and the bottom 30 percent. The top tier is basically the upper middle class, the bottom the working class. He finds two worlds, increasingly separate and unequal. In 1960, everyone was married Â„ 88 percent of the upper middle class and 83 percent of the working class. In 2010, 83 percent of the upper middle is married and only 48 percent of the working class. In 1960, births to single mothers in the working class were just 6 percent; now they are close to 50 percent. When it comes to industriousness, thereÂs the same divergence. In 1960, 1.5 percent of men in the upper middle class were out of the workforce; itÂs 2 percent now. In 1968, the number for working-class men hit a low of 5 percent; even before the spike in unemployment after the financial crisis, it was 12 percent in 2008. Although secularization is on the rise, itÂs more pronounced in the working class. Among the upper middle class, 42 percent say either they donÂt believe in God or donÂt go to church. In the work-ing class, itÂs 61 percent. In other words, a majority of the upper middle class still has some religious commitment, while a majority of the working class does not. These trends mean the working class is getting cut off from the richest sources of social capital: marriage, two-parent fami-lies and church-going. More people are falling into a lower class characterized by men who canÂt make a minimal living and single women with children. Mur-ray argues that America can maintain its national power even if these trends continue. With a growing lower class Âincreasingly unsuited for citizenry in a free society,ÂŽ though, it will no longer be the country we once knew. When it comes to saving the American way, balancing the budget is the easy part.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 15 MINUTES Around the corner from the faux New York street signs (Delancey, Canal and Essex), past the five foil-covered aluminum roasting pans (a brisket in each), beyond the quartet of gleaming Blodgett ovens (empty at the moment), DavidÂs Eastside Deli is in full pre-Passover mode. A giant stock pot sits full-to-therim with sliced carrots, white potatoes and chunks of beef. A plateful of lamb shank bones rests on a countertop. A row of cut sweet potatoes lies ready to be transformed into kugel. The days leading up to Pesach are busy ones for Rabbi Shlomo Ezagui and his wife Chani. This is a countdown day to the week-long holiday that began at sundown on April 18 and recalls the flight from Egypt and freedom from slavery for the Jews. ÂThe food is important,ÂŽ says Chani Ezagui, who oversees the kitchen opera-tion here in the basement of the Chabad Lubavitch Palm Beach in North Palm Beach. ÂItÂs about good memories, and it helps people connect with the past. ThatÂs what holidays are all about.ÂŽ DavidÂs Eastside Deli has its own memory connections. It was named for ChaniÂs Uncle David and for New York CityÂs Lower East Side, which was home to thousands of working-class Jewish immigrants, beginning in the mid-19th century. For a year and a half, the Deli had a storefront in PGA Commons. ÂIt was a phenomenal development in the community at the time,ÂŽ the rabbi says, Âbut it just didnÂt work out, for the very simple reason, there just wasnÂt enough business.ÂŽ In its present location, the Deli serves a specific clientele Â„ and a higher purpose than merely filling bellies with knishes and blintzes and corned beef on rye. ÂItÂs not a store for everybody,ÂŽ Rabbi Ezagui says. ÂItÂs not open to the public. Just members of the Chabad. But we donÂt make it difficult to become a member, just a token donation to the center.ÂŽ It is also a place that reminds Jews of who they are and why their identity matters. ÂIt serves the purpose of strengthening awareness,ÂŽ he says. ÂPart of our overall mission is to make available Judaism to the general Jewish public.ÂŽ Passover, Pesach in Yiddish, is a good time for that. The Jewish holidays, the Jewish holy days, are often the days when less-observant Jews seek to reconnect with their faith. ÂThe run-ofthe-mill Jews, when a holiday comes, they get a little excited,ÂŽ Rabbi Ezagui says. ÂThereÂs a big problem over here. While the Jewish population is rela-tively strong, the affiliation is very, very weak. We would like to see the leader-ship do something about that. There is a weakness of Jewish awareness and affiliation. ThatÂs our role.ÂŽ If the rabbi and his wife are distressed that their fellow Jews are less obser-vant than they might wish, it is not something they express openly. Critical judgment is not their role. The CenterÂs Web site puts it this way: ÂChabad does not recognize the labels of Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform. A Jew is a Jew is a Jew Â„ period. We have gotten too carried away with the adjectives Â„ the noun is universal Â„ Jew. We have one Torah, we are one People. .ÂŽ Schlomo and Chani Ezagui established the Chabad Center in 1987, when they came to northern Palm Beach County from Brooklyn, N.Y. A few years ago, when the rabbi opened DavidÂs Eastside Deli in PGA Commons, it was a different enterprise. ÂIn the Commons, it was a store to make money,ÂŽ the rabbi says. ÂThere is nothing else kosher in this entire, huge area.ÂŽ He gestures with both arms to encompass North Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter and Juno Beach. Around him in the Cha-badÂs library are books whose spines bear Hebrew lettering, encyclopedias and histories and religious tomes. And here, in English, is Maurice LammÂs ÂBecoming a JewÂŽ and Pamela ReevesÂ ÂEllis IslandÂŽ Gateway to the American DreamÂŽ and the Encyclopedia Judaica. Now, the Deli occupies its portion of the Chabad. In these days before Pass-over, and during the holiday week, the DeliÂs ice-cream-parlor chrome-back chairs are lined up in two neat rows, its pedestal tables burdened with cartons full of wire whisks and spatulas and slotted spoons and ladles, with napkins for Passover with Star-of-David prints. The faux-wood floor tiles are polished to a high gloss. The focus is on Pass-over orders, the chefs and their helpers working, says the rabbiÂs wife, round the clock. The most frequent request just now: matzo ball soup. But also tzimmis and brisket and chopped liver and gefilte fish and matzo-apple kugel. The whole megilah. Oh, and thereÂs this: hand-baked matzoh. From Israel. From the Ukraine. The rabbi and his wife give the matzoh away, no charge, to anyone who doesnÂt have matzoh for Passover. ÂItÂs very, very special,ÂŽ Chani Ezagui says. ÂItÂs the food of faith, the food of healing. Because whatever you do spiritually, it has an effect physically. ThereÂs a connection between the spiritual and the physical. ÂThe matzoh is flat. It represents humility. The matzoh has nothing in it. ItÂs not about Âme,Â itÂs about something else. God can only dwell in someone humble . .When we put away our-selves and rely on God, only then can we go forward.ÂŽ So, yes, this is a serious time and a serious place. But it is not a place without humor. One has only to click on DavidsEastSideDeli.com to know that: background music from the CD ÂMickey KatzÂs Greatest Shticks.ÂŽ Yes, THAT Mickey Katz, the comedian, the song-parody guy, the Â„ who knew? Â„ father of Joel Grey. So, there on the Web site, Katz is singing Â16 TonsÂŽ to the tune of the Tennessee Ernie Ford version, but with its own very Katz-ian lyrics: ÂOh, I went to woyk in a delicatessen Far draysik toler [for $30] and plenty to fresn [gorge] The balebast [head cook] promised me a real gedila [glory/honor] Instead of gedila I catched me a kila [hernia].ÂŽThe days of Passover end early next week Â„ a seven-day observance for some, eight days for others Â„ and the Deli will return to its tables-and-chairs self. Until then, the rabbi and his wife will continue handing out the very, very special matzoh and offering their wish to every visitor, ÂHave a Happy Passover. Be Well.ÂŽ Q BY MARY JANE FINEmjfine@floridaweekly.comprovide food of faith and healingChabad center and DavidÂ’s deli COURTESY PHOTOS Top: The deli is open just to members of the Chabad, but to join one only has to make a token donation, says Rabbi Shlomo Ezagui.

The short answers are: Maria Marino, Class A Member of the LPGA and because golf is second only to agriculture when it comes to economic impact in Palm Beach County. The long answer is: It is 1984 and I am sitting behind a desk in Stamford, Conn., watching the snow fall again and wonder-ing why IÂm working in the accounting department of General Host Corp. and not playing golf. A long discussion with the golf professional at my country club in Connecticut ensues and his advice to me is Â„ if you want to get any better, go where the sun is always shining and golf is available 365 days a year. As luck would have it, he owns a townhouse in PGA National in the Gar-dens and offers it to me as a winter home base. So I pack up my posses-sions in my little red sports car, (look-ing back it is hard to believe what went into the back of that car in addition to my golf clubs) and next thing I know itÂs 27 years later and I am a permanent resident of Palm Beach Gardens. That first winter here was tough, being on my own and not knowing a soul, but it forced me to practice and improve my skills. How I wished I had taken up the game as a junior golfer instead of as a college student at the University of Connecticut. When I finally returned to Connecticut at the end of that first season in 1985, I was much improved and had the wonderful fortune to win the Connecti-cut State WomenÂs Amateur Champion-ship. Often times we are looking for that one thing in our lives that puts us on the right path for the future, and at the time, that was it! I know the impact that win-ning that championship has had on me since I am able to replay almost every shot from that final round 26 years ago. My passion for the game has only got-ten stronger over the years and my goal is to get more kids involved in golf and more specifically, more junior girls. In future articles, I hope to share my thoughts about golf, imparting some wisdom about the game and open the reader up to whatÂs available in our small part of the county. And, I want to hear from you, the reader, as to what your interests are and what advice I may be able to give you. I hope to include a short tip each week to help make your game more enjoyable. So, sit back and enjoy what Mark Twain calls Âa good walk spoiled.ÂŽ Q My passion: The game, and getting more young people involved in golf 1. Palm Beach County has more private clubs than any other county in the U.S. There are 76 private golf facilities Â— 107, 18-hole equivalent golf courses. 2. Adding in the public courses, the total number of golf facilities is 127, containing 146 golf courses. 3. Palm Beach County ranks third in the nation in terms of supply of golf holes.Â It trails Maricopa County, Ariz., (200, 18-hole equivalent), and Riverside County, Calif., (165, 18-hole equivalent).Â It is ahead of Los Angeles County (108, 18-hole equivalent) and Cook County, Ill. (98, 18-hole equivalent). 4. The National Golf Foundation estimates there are 117,000 resident golfers in Palm Beach County. That number doubles during season.5. Local golfers and gol ng visitors play be-tween 3.5 million and 4 million rounds of golf in the county each year.6. The oldest facilities in are:Â The Breakers Ocean Golf Course (1905)Â Palm Beach Country Club (1917) Â Delray Beach Golf Course (1923)Â Lake Worth Municipal Golf Course (1925)Â Boca Raton Resort and Club (1926)Â Seminole Golf Course (1929) (LetÂ’s see, what else happened that year?)7. The newest golf club is Jupiter Country Club, which opened in 2007. 8. One new golf club is currently under con-struction, Osprey Point Golf course, an 18-hole municipal course in Boca Raton. 9. The most proli c golf course architects in the county are:Â Joe Lee (12)Â Robert Von Hagge (10), 6 in collaboration with Bruce DevlinÂ Karl Litten (7)10. Our most famous golf course architects are:Â Jack Nicklaus (4)Â Donald Ross (3)Â Pete and Alice Dye (3)And how far can you walk?Â There are 514 miles of fairways in the county. Â If you lined up all of the golf holes, they would stretch from Miami to Hilton Head, S.C. P Palm Beach County golf facts and guresMade for TVA tank and several armored vehicles with dozens of SWAT officers and a bomb robot rolled into a generally quiet Phoenix neighborhood on March 21, startling the residents. Knocking down a wall, deputies raided the home of Jesus Llovera, who was ÂsuspectedÂŽ of running a cockfighting business, and, indeed, 115 chickens were found inside, but Mr. Llovera was alone and unarmed, and his only previous con-nection to cockfights was a misde-meanor conviction in 2010 for attend-ing one. ÂWeÂre going to err on the side of caution,ÂŽ said Sgt. Jesse Spurgin. Adding to neighborsÂ amazement was the almost-fanciful sight Â„ riding in the tank Â„ of actor Steven Seagal, who had brought his ÂLawmanÂŽ reality TV show to Phoenix. Q The entrepreneurial spirit New sign-ups for higher-end Dish satellite TV systems at the Radio Shack in Hamilton, Mont., also receive free Hi-Point .380 pistols or 20-gauge shot-guns (after passing a background check, paid for by the store). The owner said his business has tripled since introduc-ing the premium in October. Bobblehead dolls may be popular baseball giveaways, but as part of the local ÂGreen Sports AllianceÂŽ dem-onstrating concern for the environ-ment, the Seattle Mariners announced in March that for several games this season, fans would get free bags of compost (made from food and other items discarded at Mariners games). It started as a class project at Brown University, but after a launch party on March 19 (and a sold-out first run of 500), Julie SygielÂs Sexy Period menstrual-leak-fighting panties are on sale ($32 to $44, depending on the style Â„ Âcheeky,ÂŽ ÂhipsterÂŽ or ÂbikiniÂŽ). Ms. Sygiel said ÂsexyÂŽ is less to suggest sen-suality than to help women cope with the time of the month when they feel Ânot at (their) best. We want to banish that moment.ÂŽ In the early hours of the destruction at JapanÂs Fukushima nuclear power plant in March, rumors abound-ed that millions of people might need iodine products to fight off radiation. A restaurateur named Guo in Wuhan, China, seeing the price of iodized table salt rise dramatically, cleverly cornered a market with 4 tons of it, trucked to his home, where it filled half the rooms. According to a March 25 China Daily report, the price has returned to pre-Fukushima levels Â„ much less than what Mr. Guo paid, and he can neither return the salt (lacking documenta-tion) nor sell nor transport it (lacking the proper licenses). Q Fun with DNA A team of whimsical researchers at the University of Osaka (Japan) Grad-uate School of ÂFrontier BiosciencesÂŽ has produced a strain of mice prone to ÂmiscopyingÂŽ DNA Â„ making them sus-ceptible to developing sometimes-unex-pected mutations, such as their recently born mouse that tweets like a bird. Lead researcher Arikuni Uchimura told Lon-donÂs Daily Mail that he had expected to produce, instead, a mouse with an odd shape, but the Âsinging mouseÂŽ emerged. Previously, the team produced a mouse with dachshund-like short limbs. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRD Medical marvels Supatra Sasuphan, 11, of Bangkok, was recently noted as the worldÂs hairi-est girl by the Guinness Book of World Records for her wolf-like facial hair as one of only 50 people in history to be recorded with hypertrichosis. Though she has been teased and taunted at school, she told a reporter in Febru-ary that the Guinness Book recognition has actually increased her popularity at Ratchabophit school. According to a team of University of Montreal psychologists, a 23-year-old man, ÂMathieu,ÂŽ is the first documented case of a person wholly unable to feel a musical beat or to move in time with it. The scientists report for an upcoming journal article that Mr. Mathieu sings in tune but merely flails with his body, bouncing up and down much more ran-domly than do people who are merely poor dancers. From the September 2010 issue of the journal Endoscopy, reported by three physicians at the Albert Einstein Medi-cal Center in Philadelphia: A 52-year-old woman undergoing a routine colonos-copy was shown on the screen to have a cockroach in her traverse colon. A litera-ture review revealed no previous cases of cockroaches (but, e.g., ants, wasps, bees). Though the cockroach was not welcome, the doctors acknowledged that in some other countries, the y are delicacies. Q Weird science From a March Discovery.com report: ÂForty million years ago, a female mite met an attractive partner, grabbed him with her clingy rear end, and began to mate Â„ just before a blob of tree resin fell on the couple, preserving the moment for eternity.ÂŽ The resin-encrusted mites were discovered recently by researchers from the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology (who noted that, in those days, the female dominated mating, but that evolution has reversed that role). Q Least-competent criminals Daryl Davis, 30, was arrested in Springfield, Pa., in March and charged with stealing a pickup truck off of a dealerÂs lot. According to police, Mr. Davis had forged an ownerÂs credential for the truck at another dealership and obtained a ÂduplicateÂŽ key, allowing him to drive the truck off the second dealerÂs lot. How-ever, when he made the original bogus credential, he had used his own name and photograph and was easily tracked down. LaShay Simmons, 22, was charged in March in Houston with theft of about 250 Sprint phones by (according to police) ordering 10 to 20 phones at a time under the names of legitimate busi-nesses, but then calling Sprint back later to change the delivery location. How-ever, she made the callbacks using her own easily traceable Sprint phone. Q BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Sat. 10-5:30The WomenÂs Foundation of Palm Beach County raised $20,000 to provide scholarships to girls in middle school to high school to attend the GirlsÂ Leader-ship Institute, which is presented by the foundation. The foundation hosted its inaugural Raise the Bar event at the Historic Palm Beach County Courthouse in West Palm Beach on March 24. More than 250 busi-ness and legal professionals attended. ÂThis event was such a great success, we doubled our fundrais-ing goal,ÂŽ Samantha Schos-berg Feuer, co-founder and board member of the foun-dation, said in a prepared statement. The 3rd Annual Girls Leadership Institute was held April 16. ItÂs a pro-gram for young women who show promise as lead-ers, but do not have the opportunities or resources to hone those skills. The WomenÂs Foundation of Palm Beach County was founded in 2007 by a group of local leaders who share a commitment to investing in women and girls to encour-age leadership and positively affect their economic, politi-cal and social status. Q WomenÂ’s foundation raises $20,000 for girlsÂ’ leadershipDo you know a Man of the Year? Or maybe you know a Woman of the Year. ThatÂs a title to which local folks are aspiring as they try to raise enough money to be the Leukemia & Lymphoma SocietyÂs Man and Woman of the Year. On March 31, the Palm Beach Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society launched its Man & Woman of the Year event. All the candidates and nearly 100 guests gathered at a cocktail recep-tion hosted by McCormick & SchmickÂs at CityPlace in West Palm Beach.

Hanley & Associates, Jason Brian of AutoCricket.com, Kristi Lei Bryan of Kristi Lei Interiors, Denise Fraile of Verati Design, Donna Lewis of SunTrust Bank, the team of Adam Lipson and Chris Grubb, Jennifer Martin of Bodhi Hot Yoga, Miles McGrane of Cole, Scott & Kissane, PA, Jeff Neve of PNC Bank, Dr. Lorne Stitsky of Personal Choice Family Practice, Lindsay Tapp of Caregiver Ser-vices Inc., Ilya Tatarov of LostEvidence and Gretta Vitta of Powerful Marketing. Each year, candidates from across the country join the 10-week fundraising cam-paign to earn the titles by raising money for research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy and Girl of the Year.This yearÂs Boy and Girl of the Year are Daniel Jaramillo, 11, an ALL (Acute Lym-phocytic Leukemia) survivor, and Abby Alonzo, 12, a HodgkinÂs lymphoma survivor. Both children are in remission. The Man and Woman of the Year will be announced June 10 at the Kravis CenterÂs Cohen Pavilion. The winners will be featured on buses throughout Palm Beach County, in a full-page USA Today ad and in local print media. Mr. Brian, a Palm Beach Gardens High School graduate, says he wants to make a difference. ÂWeÂre real active when it comes to non-profits and charity and this was an awesome thing for us to find,ÂŽ he says. At 23, he heads his own company, AutoCricket.com, which allows users to compare vehi-cle and insurance policies.Last year, Man of the Year Joey Fago raised nearly $67,000. The Woman of the Year, Val-erie Fiordilino, raised nearly $23,000.The Leukemia & Lymphoma SocietyÂs Man & Woman of the year is a nation-wide event.

MARTY BECKER__________________________Special to Florida Weeklyadvantage of the incredible advances in veterinary medicine, but some simply canÂt afford them. The solution for many is pet health insurance. The surprise? Despite several companies offering such insurance with good track records and countless satisfied customers, fewer than 2 percent of dog lovers protect their pets this way. Q Secret No. 8: Your dog doesnÂt have to hate going to the veterinarian. If you work with your veterinarian to keep early experiences pleasant Â„ such as not having nails trimmed at your vetÂs place and having your pet given pats and treats on every visit Â„ your dog will love going to the hospital.QSecret No. 9: ItÂs easy to save money on pet care without short-changing your pet. You can save money by price-shop-ping for prescription medications, buying in bulk, keeping your pet thin and even bartering for your petÂs needs. Q Secret No. 10: ÂYearly shotsÂŽ are no longer recommended. Most dogs should now get ÂcoreÂŽ vaccines on a three-year cycle. There is no longer any Âone size fits allÂŽ when it comes to vaccines. These 10 secrets? TheyÂre just the beginning of what youÂll find IÂve shared with you in ÂYour Dog: The OwnerÂs Manual.ÂŽ And if youÂre a cat lover, I have great news for you, too: ÂYour Cat: The OwnerÂs ManualÂŽ will be out next spring. Q Your Dog' offers secrets, surprises and solutions for every dog loverthe-counters Â„ safely locked away, youÂll pro-tect your pet from the No. 1 poisoning haz-ard. Q Secret No. 3: Stop the post-bath shake from getting water all over your bath-room Â„ and you. ItÂs simple: That water-spraying shake starts at the nose, and if you hold your dogÂs muzzle until you can get a towel over him, youÂll prevent him from shaking. Q Secret No. 4: New training tools like head halters and front-clip leashes can make walking your dog a pleasure for you both. These tools are like power-steering for your dog. I also share how to develop an exercise program that will improve the health of both you and your dog. Q Secret No. 5: Getting old doesnÂt need to mean misery for your dog. Work-ing with your veterinarian to provide your old dog ÂneutraceuticalsÂŽ such as omega-3 oil and glucosamine, along with prescrip-tion pain medications, can put the bounce back in your old dogÂs step. Q Secret No. 6: Learn why every pet owner needs to keep several over-the-counter remedies on hand Â„ and when your veterinarian may direct you to use them. YouÂll want to stock up on Pepto-Bismol (for upset tummies), hydrogen per-oxide (to induce vomiting) and Benadryl (for allergies). Q Secret No. 7: Most people want to take ÂYour Dog: The OwnerÂs ManualÂŽ isnÂt just another book on dog care. When I say Âhundreds of secrets, surprises and solutions for raising a happy, healthy dog,ÂŽ IÂm not kidding. In my work, I balance my decades of real-world experi-ence as a practicing veterinarian with my access to the leaders in the veterinary and pet care world. The result: an insiderÂs view of whatÂs tried and true, as well as what you need to know about whatÂs new. And I share it all, with you. Here are 10 of my top insiderÂs secrets from ÂYour Dog: The OwnerÂs ManualÂŽ that will help any dog lover. Secrets? They might as well be, theyÂre so little known. Surprises? To most people, you bet. Solu-tions? Absolutely. Read on! Q Secret No. 1: Shedding is a top complaint of dog lovers, but when people choose a low-shed pet, theyÂre usually barking up the wrong tree. The kind of dog who sheds the least? A small one (less dog, less fur) with long fur (long fur stays in longer than short fur) whoÂs kept clipped short (less left on to clean up when it does eventually fall out). Q Secret No. 2: Preventing accidents can save more than your pet Â„ it saves money, too. By keeping all medications Â„ human and pet prescriptions, and all over-PET TALES In the know ad ibl na si m Th p et s u rp c o m i ns u reco isfie d than ers p w ay Q S d oes n t o th e w ork i an to l y oh e zp e e w training tools

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 Although we dare not stereotype, itÂs usually the woman who initiates the dis-cussion. Often, she has been holding onto her upset emotions and is struggling how best to bring up the topic. She knows that the conversation often deteriorates into an ugly argument. So she sits on her words and waits for the ideal opportunity to open the discussion. She weighs and mea-sures how to say whatÂs important to her, worrying that she will be misunderstood, tuned out or that her words might be used against her. She rehearses the message back and forth in her head, polishing her efforts to be the most palatable and best received. After waiting and waiting for the opportune time, she finally concludes that there may NEVER be a good time. So she finally blurts out: ÂWe need to talk!!!!ÂŽ There may be dead silence as she waits for a reaction. She knows something is wrong but may not fully comprehend what might be happening. She may not realize that when her partner anticipates that a stressful conversation is about to start, an alarm bell may set off a powerful visceral upheaval. She may not see that the hairs on the back of his neck are now standing on end, nor see that his face is getting hot, that his blood pressure is escalating and that his jaw is clenching. When a person is worked up like this, it is probably the WORST possible time to have a meaningful conversation. What most people fail to realize is that humans have been physiologically wired since prehistoric times to react power-fully to real or perceived danger. When we experience extreme stress Â„ whether from our own internal worries or from outside dangers Â„ a bodily reaction is escalated, which is often called the Âfight or flightÂŽ reaction. This mechanism is fine-tuned into our brains and has been designed genetically to protect us harm. This Âfear centerÂŽ in our brain initiates a sequence of nerve cell firings and the release of chemicals that prepare the body both psychologically and physically for danger and to possibly jump into attack mode. Senses sharpen: Pupils dilate, the heart pumps faster, breathing speeds up and endorphins are released. In pre-historic times, the fight may have shown itself as aggressive, hostile behav-ior, while the flight might have shown itself as fleeing from a dangerous situ-ation, (such as from a wild animal.) In more recent times, these instincts per-sist, but may follow a different pattern: the fight might look like angry, sarcastic behavior, while the flight may show itself as more socially withdrawn behavior, such as excessive computer use, workaholism, or even substance abuse. Although the physical changes prepare the body for the prowess to attack, research has shown that this state of high arousal simultaneously may compromise a personÂs judgment and logical thought, rendering them ill-equipped to have a productive discussion. Now, there will be those who will vehemently dispute this premise, and of course so may of us in modern times are rightly fighting to challenge outdated social ste-reotypes. However, John Gottman, one of the countryÂs foremost relationship experts, describes these phenomena at length in his best-selling book, ÂThe Seven Princi-ples for Making Marriage Work.ÂŽ His find-ings after 25 years of research concluded that the majority of couples (including those in healthy, happy marriages) follow a comparable pattern of conflict in which the wife is more likely to be the one to bring up the sensitive issues (allegedly because she is constitutionally better able to handle stress, dating back to evolution-ary times when women were the nurtur-ers tending the home). The husband (the original hunter-gatherer wired to protect the family from danger) would allegedly be less able to cope with sensitive topics, and would more likely become defensive, avoiding tough issues at all costs. Now obviously, this is not true for all couples, and certainly not for all couples at all times. I know MANY sensitive men who reach out lovingly to their wives and who will be the FIRST to initiate impor-tant, but loaded, subjects. But this phenomenon can be instructive to give us insight into the best way to reach out to our loved ones at difficult times. Know-ing that bringing up tough topics can send out warn-ing bells to some can help us move forward with each other differently. Certainly itÂs best to talk about issues earlier on rather than avoiding discussions and letting things magnify out of control. Dr. GottmanÂs research has concluded that con-versations that start with what he calls a Âharsh start upÂŽ Â„ criticism and/or sarcasm Â„ will inevitably end up on a bad note. The couples who attempt to repair negativity in their interac-tions (whether with apologies, a sense of humor or efforts to take time-outs) have been proven to maintain a more solid bond. When two people are not in alignment about important issues, it does not auto-matically mean that the relationship is unsalvageable. When people feel very strongly about an issue, it would be unreasonable to expect them to ignore the feelings, hoping that by not talking, the issues will magically Âgo away.ÂŽ It can be very helpful to ver-bally spell out what the difference is and to agree that this will be a topic that you may NEVER agree about; but that the two of you are committed to work together to come up with compromise solutions. Learning to help each other to press PAUSE, when a conversation becomes heated, with a commitment to press REPLAY, when you are both ready is a valuable skill that provides the opportunity to collect your thoughts and emotions, heading off a tremendous amount of heartache.

HEALTHY LIVING linda LIPSHUTZ O firstname.lastname@example.orgPress pause, women, when you see his eyes start bugging outOne of the great things about a long tenure in the same field is the appreciation you develop for how things have changed along the way. Overall, the milestones achieved on the side of progress generally out-weigh, in my mind, all the detours that have been distractions to arriving now at a better place. When I first made the migra-tion from a ÂregularÂŽ job in the private sec-tor to employment in the non-profit sec-tor, a true fork in the road was made, and like the Carl Sandburg poem, a journey began on a road less traveled Â„ certainly within my own familyÂs history. We have toiled on the railroads, in mail cars, on factory floors; on hardscrabble farms, in hardware stores, in schoolrooms; behind drugstore counters, secretarial desks and checkout lanes. Our uniforms were the uniforms of everyday working people Â„ as waitresses, nurses, clerks, as well as those worn in service to our country, as Army, Navy and Marine recruits. We put our kids through school by donning paintersÂ whites, farmersÂ khakis and blue collar, Dickey shirts Â„ whatever it took. My dadÂs aunt once took me into her workplace, a cotton mill in Rock Hill, S.C., where she had been employed for 30 years. We walked down the rows of machinery as she explained her task and responsibili-ties. The roar of the machinery was deafening and the lint so heavy in the air, I sneezed lint for hours afterward. But Aunt PearlÂs pride and dignity in her job dispelled any notion that hers was toil unworthy of respect. She had a spine of steel, a trait I learned to appreciate Â„ as genetic to my own resolve to find the niche that allowed a living to be made, all the while my satisfaction in doing the work was a clear benefit. There was no plan or a career path evident on how I was to arrive at my destina-tion, as the path is indeed complicated by the small details of life that tend to drive you in directions and to ward outcomes where having a choice really does not enter into the equation. Or, if a choice was exercised, and it turned out to be the wrong one, consequences were often far reaching, a derailment whose aftermath unfolded like mildew spreading on a white wall. Looking back, I have been extremely fortunate to follow the serendipitous opportunity where one thing leads to another, and suddenly, a door is opened and you walk through it, toward a goal you have long dreamed of achieving. My first job in a nonprofit organization happened this way. I was hooked for life. Here was an occupation whose core was a mission of service to community, on behalf of causes that mattered, and in the interest of positive change. Better yet, it gave purpose and meaning to the inevita-bility of working for a living and it went along with a modest paycheck that helped pay the bills. Now, that was success of a different kind. A career path in philanthropy was not obvious back then. My route was circu-itous and began first with a job in a non-profit organization. There are now post secondary institutions that offer degree programs in nonprofit management and direction and substance to the pursuit of working in a philanthropic institution. By contrast, my own experience and training came as a result of learning by doing. There was no other path. I was a single parent and the list was long that instructed first things first. The genesis of my pursuit was being humbled and then challenged by the difficulties inherent in raising funds. Finding both funding and a source resonate with your cause was tough, and the list short, in the days when social and economic justice were high profile in the South, with only few funders in the region who were stepping up to the plate. The challenge in raising funds is not much diminished these days, a fact under-scored by present economic circumstanc-es. Yet there are many more sources of funding than times past, philanthropy hav-ing come of age under the leadership of a new generation of donors that see the value of giving back and paying forward. A greater tolerance for risk and a willing-ness to fund innovation at the edge of social change are examples of progress, as philanthropy has matured from alms for the poor into leadership in the world and society writ large. ThatÂs no job, friends. ThatÂs a calling. Have you been called?

A. Willis, oncologistBecause they have white underbellies, it was previ-ously believed that zebras were white animals with black stripes. Embryological research, however, has con-firmed that zebras are really black animals with white stripes and bellies added. There are many theories regarding the addition of these white stripes. Some cite theories of camouflage. Perhaps the stripes cre-ate visual non-recognition in non-zebras, from lions to tse-tse flies, as well as means of recognition by other zebras. Or perhaps the stripes coincide with and make visible underskin fat patterning useful in body temperature regulation. And then there are the zebra wannabes, the so-called zonkeys or Tijuana donkeys. These animals are not zebras at all, but merely white donkeys that have been painted with black stripes. In this case one might hypothesize human motivation to achieve clarity in tourist photos. The word zebra also has another, entirely different meaning. In medical parlance, zebra is a slang term that means an unlikely diagnosis. It comes from the dictum oft heard in medical school: ÂWhen you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras.ÂŽ Another term used for an unusual or interesting case or diagnosis is fascinoma. This word was created by combining the word fascinating with the suffix-oma, which is used to describe many types of tumor growths. Tumor, or neoplasm (new growth in Greek), the abnormal growth of body tissue, happens when the strict control of cell division is lost, and cells divide unnecessarily. Many hypotheses have been advanced for this appearance: chem-ical toxins, excessive alcohol or sunlight, genetics, obesity, viruses or radiation. How can we simply function in a world that advances so many possible explana-tions, hypotheses, theories? Everything from zebra stripes to tumors and beyond can be analyzed and theorized, riddled and unriddled, balkanized, compartmen-talized, autolyzed and alchemized. Do these interpretations illuminate or obfus-cate, illustrate or terminate clarity? Are we looking through a kaleidoscopic fascinoma of neoplastic ideation? Perhaps emergence from the Dark Ages was aided by the English Friar WilliamÂs proclamation of his theory, OccamÂs Razor. This principle calls for selecting the hypoth-esis that requires the fewest new assumptions. We hear the rustling of an acronym: KISS Â„ Keep it simple, stu-pid. Or perhaps that translates ÂKeep it simply stupid.ÂŽ That would be the thrust of Hick-amÂs Dictum, another medical school favorite, the anti-razor, that reads: ÂPatients can have as many diseases as they damn well please.ÂŽ Perhaps parsimony is not neces-sarily reality. Do pirates posit unnecessary signs as necessarily meaningless? That seems impossible. When was a KISS ever simple? When was excessive divisiveness remedy ever seemingly impassible? If the whole of creation is radically contingent, it is clear that plurality must never be posited without necessity.

ÂThe program creates awareness of the prob-lems that teens face today and offers a solution for it. It is making a difference in our community.ÂŽ Do The Write Thing offers middleschool students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence, and write. ÂThe response has been amazing,ÂŽ Fanjul said, noting that 18,984 Palm Beach County students participated this year. ÂThe program has grown 10-fold in just a few short years.ÂŽ Mr. Fanjul recruited attorney Bill Bone to chair the organizationÂs Palm Beach County steering committee and his wife, Lourdes, to co-chair the final judging of student essays with Judge Ronald Alvarez from the Palm Beach County Circuit Court Juvenile Division. The countyÂs program now ranks second in the nation, behind Houston in the number of participants. The Fanjul family also underwrites the luncheon for the student finalists, their parents, teachers and principals. More than 600 guests are expected to attend the May 9 event at the Kravis Center. Community leaders will speak and about 40 students will read selections from their writings. A boy and a girl will go to the national conference, the trip underwritten by the Fanjuls. The program teaches students that violence doesnÂt need to be physical to hurt; teasing, bullying and threatening words on their phones or the Internet can lead to more threatening situations. ÂSome of the essays are about bullying, others are about coming from broken homes. Many are an inspiration,ÂŽ Mr. Fan-jul said.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 Â„ April is Autism Awareness MonthThis is the third in a four-part series presented by Florida Weekly that looks into the different aspects of dealing with autism. BY EDEN AUTISM SERVICES FLORIDA_______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyLaw enforcement agencies throughoutLaw enforcement agencies through-out Southwest Florida have adopted a proactive approach to dealing with peo-ple with mental illnesses and disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder. Our regionÂs sheriffs and police chiefs are tak-ing the initiative to train patrol officers in techniques to help them as first respond-ers confronting a person with ASD.While no two individuals with autism are alike, many typically lack commu-nication and social skills and can be perceived by the general public as dis-turbing or alarming. As a result, a person with ASD is seven times more likely than other individuals to have an encounter with a police officer. When a police offi-cer is called to this type of situation, itÂs because the complainant is concerned about unusual behavior, not dangerous or criminal activity. As part of its enhanced training for deputies, the Collier County SheriffÂs Office focuses an entire block on autism Â„ identifying signs and making deputies aware that a person with autism might be sensitive to touch or flashing lights. ÂOur deputies learn how to respond to calm down a person they suspect might have autism,ÂŽ says Lt. George Welch of the departmentÂs prevention services bureau. ÂThey learn that all people with autism present differently and have different levels of functionality. They learn how to communicate and how not to communicate.ÂŽ As officers learn, patience and time are the best resources when dealing with the individual with autism. People with ASD might need additional time to pro-cess a request. They might avoid eye contact or dem-onstrate a variety of unusual behaviors, including repeti-tion, flapping their arms or rocking their bodies (known as ÂstimmingÂŽ), an unusual tone of voice or a peculiar or unbalanced gait Â„behavior that could be perceived as intoxication. The person with ASD might also invade personal space or need to touch objects and people as a way to acclimate to a new environment. Noises and activity can further agitate their condition. Officers are learning that a calm, reassuring voice is often the best approach. TheyÂre also being trained to use clear, concise language, to avoid slang that could be interpreted literally, and to provide a long pause that will allow the person to process and respond to a request. Not interfering with stimming or acclimation is also important, as is trying to determine why the individual is acting out. Although encounters with individuals with ASD are not common for the CCSO, the training has proven benefi-cial. Lt. Welch recalls one incident when a deputy realized he was dealing with an individual with autism. The man was trying to get into a pool area at night. ÂIt was an autism facility, but the deputy didnÂt know that at the time,ÂŽ says Lt. Welch. ÂHe had just gone through the class and remembered the instructor mentioning that people with autism are often attracted to water. He approached this individual calmly. He found a hose and turned it on so the man could play with the water. It was fortunate the deputy had the training and was able to locate something to keep him calm ver-sus grabbing him.ÂŽ Collier deputies are more likely to respond to a report that an individual with ASD has wandered off Â„ a prob-lem addressed by the Project Lifesaver program launched three years ago by the departmentÂs victim advocacy division. Through the nonprofit program, parents and caregivers can buy water-resistant bracelets that emit a silent radio signal. Patrol cars and the departmentÂs aerial unit can pick up the signal from up to seven miles away. Of the 13 Collier County resi-dents who wear the bracelets, half have autism, according to Angela Larson, supervisor of victim and senior advocacy. A partnership with the Pilot Club of Naples and its annual 5K run help defray some of the costs to the families. ÂThe bracelets provide peace of mind,ÂŽ Ms. Lar-son says. ÂWhen someone wanders off, time is of the essence. Our average search time with these bracelets is only 30 minutes.ÂŽ The sensitivity and proactive approach demonstrated by the CCSO and other local agencies is precisely why police incidents are few and far between. Many of these skills can also be practiced by members of the general public when facing a situation they donÂt ini-tially understand. Q Â„ Eden Autism Services offers comprehensive clinical and outreach services, including program consultations and early intervention, to operating schools in Naples and Fort Myers, an organic training farm, and residential and employment services for adults. For more information, contact EdenÂs clinical services and outreach division at (239) 992-4680, Ext. 205.Law enforcement trains to distinguish autism from aggression The JCC of the Palm Beaches announced that Peggy S. Brown, a Palm Beach resident, has pledged $1 million to its capital campaign to build the JCC North in Palm Beach Gardens. The gift is from her family foundation, The Alvin I. and Peggy S. Brown Family Foundation. The JCCÂs new facility is scheduled to begin construction in early 2012. The auditorium at the JCC North will be named after Ms. Brown, who has been involved with Jewish Community Center of the Greater Palm Beaches for years as a board member and philanthropist, the JCC announced in a prepared statement. She has been generous supporter with the JCCÂs childrenÂs scholarship and cultural arts programs over the years, the group noted. Ms. Brown, whose husband, Alvin, passed away in 2010, is most passionate about childrenÂs services. ÂPeggy is a remarkable visionary for the Jewish community who demonstrates how powerful philanthropy can be and how it changes lives,ÂŽ said Michelle Wasch Lobovits, the JCCÂs executive director and founder of the Jewish WomenÂs Founda-tion, in the statement. ÂShe gives so gen-erously with her time and her resources. Peggy is a role model for me, her three daughters and all women.ÂŽ Helping to move and draw support for a Jewish entity is nothing new to Ms. Brown. A resident of Florida for more than 28 years who was born and raised in Washington, D.C., she was among the leaders in Washington who recognized the need to move the Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA) to Rockville, Md., (among other locations now) where demographics showed their services were more needed. The JCC of the Palm Beaches is moving from West Palm Beach to better meet the needs of the growing Jewish community. ÂThis is my first gift since my husbandÂs passing, and one that means so much to me because of the value the JCC has to the community,ÂŽ said Ms. Brown. ÂItÂs criti-cal to have a Jewish Community Center where kids can go to camp and school, where adults and families can learn and meet one another, and where the whole community can access vital services and programs.ÂŽ Alvin Brown founded Aldon Management Corp. in 1947 with his brother, Don-ald. Still a family-owned business, Alvin and Peggy BrownÂs three daughters and two nieces run it today. Ms. Brown and her daughters run the family foundation. Since an initial $5 million grant from The Mandel Foundation in March, the JCCÂs capital campaign has raised an additional $5 million in gifts from several residents. With $10 million raised, the campaign is two-thirds to its goal of $15 million. Currently, the JCC is operating JCC North in temporary facilities in Midtown Plaza on PGA Boulevard. The JCC of the Palm Beaches has a second location in Boynton Beach, a 54,000-square-foot facility on six acres. The JCC is a partner agency of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. The new JCC North will house a preschool, adult programming, a pool and aquatics center, day camp, sports fields and a gymnasium. There will be space for lectures, group fitness, recreation and adult education, as well as for childrenÂs programming, including special needs.

A recent one-day exhibit of Julie AndrewsÂ costumes from her television show brought in a large crowd. It was an unexpected thrill, she said. ÂI got a call from two girls who said they were moving to Florida and wanted to sell their uncleÂs collection Â„ he was the Emmy-winning costume designer for Julie Andrews for her television show.ÂŽ The designer was Jack Bears, who dressed other stars as well as Ms. Andrews. ÂHe had closetfuls of her dresses and gowns Â„ I got to see a lot of them Â„ the handwork was all done by him. It was beautiful work; all hand-beaded, simple lines, beautiful fabrics. And he was so humble; he kept a very low profile.ÂŽ Ms. Wright held a private showing from the collection to benefit the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, selling tickets to the event for $10. ÂWe had 17 beautiful gowns on man-nequins, with his picture and his Emmy. His family was here and answering questions Â„ it was won-derful,ÂŽ she said. Through her friend and appraiser Tim Luke of HGTV, the full collec-tion was sent to Julien Auctions in Beverly Hills, where the dresses are expected to fetch up to $10,000 per gown. The vintage and celebrity part of her shop is minor, she said Â„ most of what she offers is high-end labels such as Escada, Lilly Pulitzer or Carolina Herrara Â„ one of Ms. WrightÂs personal favorites, along with Chanel. ÂIÂm a Chanel gal,ÂŽ she said. ÂHer clothing is timeless Â„ itÂs something that never goes out of style. You could wear a piece from the Â20s even today and it will look stylish.ÂŽ ThereÂs a timeless appeal in the little black dress a la Audrey Hep-burn, she said. TodayÂs trends are retro, she said. ÂThe mididress from the Â70s is back. Actually a lot of the Â70s styles are back Â„ even tie-dye. Big color-block patterns, bold prints.ÂŽ Costume hunting isnÂt limited to Halloween, though she admits itÂs a popular time for shop-pers to come in looking for items to put a costume together. ÂJust yesterday we had a couple come in looking for Western costumes; the week before that, someone wanted Â20s.ÂŽ Only a small selection of her shop is dedicated to vintage while the rest is a mix of formal wear and casual better-label pieces. She gets them from all around the area, at estate sales, and from women who are cleaning their own or a relativeÂs closet. Not everything, however, makes the racks. ÂWe have a 15-point checklist online that you can see Â„ labels that we take and those that we donÂt.ÂŽ While some accessories are taken, Kenneth Cole or Chanel jewelry, or Judith Lieber purses, they need to be high quality Â„ and no knock-offs or fakes are accepted. Few shoes are on the rack, but Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choos might make the cut. Ms. Wright mostly consigns items, but occasionally will buy outright. She sets the price of the clothing and relies on software to help her deter-mine a fair price. She also takes very few menÂs items Â„ a few smoking jackets and quality suits, but itÂs rare Â„ the boutique is oriented to fashionable women. SheÂs discreet in protecting the identity of some of her celebrity clients Â„ both buyers and sellers. ÂI buy from several whose names would be recog-nized, but part of our appeal is that weÂre discreet. IÂll visit a client in her house, if preferred.ÂŽ Private shopping parties also can be arranged at Circa Vintage for groups of 10 or more. Ms. Wright also will take requests and hunt down arti-cles of clothing elsewhere, though thereÂs plenty to choose from in the shop. ÂIt moves quickly Â„ we try to stay on top of what our customers want,ÂŽ she said. Prom dresses are popular right now. To have clothing considered, visit the web site first to see the checklist and labels accepted, and then contact the shop for an appointment.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 weÂve come a long way in 41 years. Recycling is a habit in most South Florida communities now, and we are conscious of preserving fragile resourc-es. But there still is much to do.This yearÂs Earth Day theme is ÂA Billion Acts of Green,ÂŽ in which par-ticipants are encouraged to pledge to do such things as forgoing plastic water bottles and car-pool when possible. Locally, groups are marking Earth Day with art installations and special events. The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties is honoring non-profits through its Going Green Contest 2011. In that contest, the charity on April 16 awarded five organizations for working to Âgo green.ÂŽ ÂAll the groups that have participated in this yearÂs Going Green have done a tremendous job in changing the cul-ture of the organization,ÂŽ says Daryl Houston, the Community FoundationÂs community investment officer and the man who manages the Going Green Contest. Faith Farm Ministries received the ÂBarbara Groves Eco-Impact AwardÂŽ recipient. The group, which offers a free, faith-based addiction recovery program at its site west of Boynton Beach on U.S. 441, received $7,500. The award, created in honor of a local philanthropist, rec-ognizes the organization that has shown the greatest commitment to greening efforts by reducing energy dependence, limiting waste and conserving water accomplished through the most cost-efficient means. ÂThe one organization that stood out was Faith Farm Ministries. ItÂs amazing what theyÂve been able to do in engag-ing their staff and really transforming the recycled items into finances that can actually support the organization,ÂŽ Mr. Houston says. One component of Faith FarmÂs rehab program is the charityÂs three thrift stores. But the recycling efforts have gone beyond that. ÂThey have reused items. They are breaking down car parts to sell them, or maybe some clothing that has come in through the community, even recycling metals and plastics,ÂŽ Mr. Houston says. Prime Time Palm Beach County of Boynton Beach received the ÂSustainable Communities Award,ÂŽ for a total of $6,000, for the implementation of Project Grow. The program was cre-ated in partnership with the Center for Creative Education and the YMCA of South Palm Beach County, and is a com-prehensive curriculum-based childhood obesity prevention program. The pro-gram encourages proper nutrition and better food choices through gardening and nutrition lessons; play activities and non-competitive physical activity. The Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida received $4,000 as part of the ÂYouth Engagement AwardÂŽ for their environ-mental education programs. The group, which has headquarters in Jupiter, offers programs that address such activities as solar energy, sustainable food sources (SOW what?) and water (Camp H2O). Two prizes of $1,650 each were awarded in the ÂJudges Green HarvestÂŽ category. The first award went to Flor-ida Arts and Dance Company of Stuart for its ÂWear and Share Cabinet.ÂŽ The Second ÂJudges Green Harvest AwardÂŽ went to Sunflower Creative Arts of Boca Raton for its community service/environmental club, Roots and Shoots. Other Earth Day projects are a little more visible. Drive along PGA Boulevard west of Military Trail and youÂll see ÂRecy-cling is an Art,ÂŽ an installation of recy-cling containers decorated by local high school students. This yearÂs installation, at PGA Commons, drew upon the talents of seven groups of high school students, who used eco-friendly paint to make their mark on the 4-yard containers. The only requirement: They had to incorporate a butterfly Â„ the PGA Commons icon Â„ into their designs. ÂWe actually put together something really, really special,ÂŽ says Jon Chan-ning, developer of PGA Commons. ÂIÂm looking out my window right now and theyÂre starting to paint.ÂŽ Judging began April 19 and runs through April 21. Members of the com-munity can view the containers then vote on their favorites. ÂItÂs a great event and weÂre happy that we can bring in different schools in the area and that kids can do something positive and appreciate what Earth Day is,ÂŽ Mr. Channing says. The winning schools will be announced during a celebration, sched-uled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 22 at PGA Commons. There will be dual radio remotes with on-air personalities from KOOL 105.5 and WILD 95.5. The top three winners will receive prizes of $250, $500 and $1,000. ÂRecycling is an ArtÂŽ also will include entertainment by Brett Loewenstern, a top 24 finalist on this season of ÂAmeri-can Idol.ÂŽ Mr. Loewenstern, from Boca Raton, will help announce the winners and will perform at the celebration. The Resource Depot will offer art activi-ties using recycled materials and artist Jackie Tufford will model dresses made from recycled electrical cords and wir-ing, along with recycled art displays. ÂWeÂll bring a lot of awareness to people in our area and that is important,ÂŽ Mr. Channing says. ÂItÂs good to make people be more focused on being better to our environment. Q Speaking of hues, from April 29-May 1, SunFest will feature works by about 165 artists from across the country in its Juried Fine Art & Craft Show. Expect an array of paintings, photography, sculp-ture, jewelry and such. There also will be wine tastings and seminars in the Wine Garden, at Trin-ity Park, near the south end of SunFest. Cost will be $5 for a flight of three wines. What if itÂs too hot for wine? SunFest vendors will offer a selection of frozen rumrunners and Margaritas. And donÂt forget the food: SunFest has all the usual carnival fare, plus more vegetarian food, such as Greek salads, pizzas and roasted corn on the cob. Eating too much food? This year, SunFest has added a 5K race to its lineup. The race, scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m. April 29, is designed for runners who want to stick around and party afterward. The $45 fee will get runners access to Sun-Fest, plus two beers, waters or soft drinks afterward. There will be a changing area and a misty-style rinse area. Or, if runners are really sweaty, they can shower off at Ultima Fitness, at the corner of Clematis Street and South Dixie Highway. The cost? A $1 towel fee. The festival opens April 27 with performances by Buddy Lee Rodgers (6:30 p.m. Tire Kingdom Stage), The Super-villains (7:15 p.m., Bank of America Stage), The Avett Brothers (8:15 p.m. Tire Kingdom Stage) and Sublime with Rome (9 p.m., Bank of America Stage).

REAL ESTATE A GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRYWEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 A21 walkable neighborhoodsAmericans favor walkable, mixeduse neighborhoods, with 56 percent of respondents preferring smart growth neighborhoods over neighborhoods that require more driving between home, work and recreation. ThatÂs according to a recent study, the Community Preference Survey, by the National Association of Realtors. ÂRealtors care about improving communities through smart growth initiatives,ÂŽ said NAR President Ron Phipps, brokerpresident of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. ÂOur members donÂt just sell homes, they sell neighborhoods. Realtors understand that different home buyers are looking for all kinds of neighborhood settings and that many home buyers want walkable, transit-accessible communities.ÂŽ Walkable communities are defined as those where shops, restaurants, and local businesses are within walking distance from homes. According to the survey, when considering a home purchase, 77 percent of respondents said they would look for neighborhoods with abundant sidewalks and other pedestrian-friend-ly features, and 50 percent would like to see improvements to existing public transportation rather than initiatives to build new roads and developments. The survey also revealed that while space is important to homebuyers, many are will-ing to sacrifice square footage for less driving. Eighty percent of those surveyed would prefer to live in a single-family, detached home as long as it didnÂt require a longer commute, but nearly three out of five of those surveyed Â„ 59 percent Â„ would choose a smaller home if it meant a commute time of 20 minutes or less. The survey also found that community characteristics are very important to most people. When considering a home purchase, 88 percent of respondents placed more value on the quality of the neighborhood than the size of the home, and 77 percent of those surveyed want communities with high-quality schools. The survey of 2,071 adult Americans was conducted by Belden, Russonello and Stewart from Feb. 15-24. Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhy many are preferring A bill to improve the process for approving short sales may soon bring relief to distressed homeowners who are unable to keep their homes and hope to avoid foreclosure. The bill, strongly supported by the National Association of Realtors, according to the association, would impose a deadline of 45 days on lend-ers to respond to short sale requests. The legislation, the ÂPrompt Decision for Qualification for Short Sale Act of 2011,ÂŽ was offered in Congress by U.S. Reps. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) and Robert Andrews (D-N.J.). ÂThe current short sale process can be time-consuming and inefficient, and many would-be buyers end up walking away from a sale that could have saved a homeowner from foreclosure,ÂŽ said NAR President Ron Phipps, of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. ÂRealtors and consumers continue to raise issues about delays in the short sale process, because lenders are unable to decide whether to approve a short sale. ÂAfter many months of delays, and with no response from lenders, poten-tial buyers are losing patience and can-celling their contracts, often resulting in the property entering foreclosure,ÂŽ said Mr. Phipps. NAR stated that it has been actively pushing the lending industry to improve the process for approving short sales, which represent about 13 percent of recent home sales, accord-ing to NAR data. ÂStreamlining short sales transactions will reduce the amount of time it takes to sell the property, improve the likelihood that the transaction will close and reduce the overall number of foreclosures,ÂŽ Mr. Phipps said. Q Realtors association voices strong support for short-sale billAllen West, U.S. Representative from the 22nd Congressional District, is the guest at a Realtor ÂMeet and GreetÂŽ from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on April 29 at Balistreri Realty, located at 1 N.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 Easter bunnies are older than you think. They were part of pre-Christian fertil-ity stories, and since rabbits are known to have many, many babies, they are symbols of new life in the spring. They first became the symbol of Easter in Germany in the 1500s. But it took until the 1800s before edi-ble Easter bunnies in the form of sugared pastries became part of the celebration. The bunny came to America with some settlers from Germany who immigrated to Pennsylv ania in the 1700s. The ÂOschter HawsÂŽ (Easter Bunny) was popular with children who were told that if they were good, they would find a nest of colored eggs left by the bunny. The children made a nest in the house or yard using a hat and hoped for some eggs. The nest later became an Easter basket. Easter celebrations in the 19th century, especially in Germany, included all sorts of rabbits and bunnies. Stuffed toys were popular, along with carved wooden toys, candy containers, iron doorstops, mechanical walking rabbits and even automatons in the form of fur-covered bunnies holding Easter baskets. Many collectors search for vintage pieces made for a specific holiday. Most popular is Christmas, then Halloween, then the Fourth of July or Easter. If you prefer Easter, donÂt ignore postcards, greeting cards, table and wall decorations and, of course, all sorts of special eggs that are still often inexpensive.Q: We have a B.L. Marble office chair and would like to know what itÂs worth. Can you help?A: The B.L. Marble Chair Co.Âs history can be traced back to 1894, when Barzilla L. Marble (1851-1932) founded a chair-manufacturing business in Bedford, Ohio. It made household chairs until 1910, then started manufacturing office furniture, including chairs. The company closed in 1985. B.L. Marble office chairs sell for $25 to $200, depending on age and condition. Q: I was one of many women who worked as welders at the Kaiser Ship-yards in Oregon during World War II. When my husband returned to the U.S. and called me to meet him in California, I quit my job. I never cashed the last payroll check I received from Kaiser in 1945. After deductions, including one for a war bond, my check totaled 3 cents. ItÂs a keepsake, but IÂm wondering if it has any monetary value.A: There were seven Kaiser Shipyards on the West Coast during World War II. Four were in the San Francisco Bay area, where today thereÂs a park dedicated to Rosie the Riveter Â„ the symbol of wom-enÂs contributions to the war effort. ItÂs called ÂRosie the Riveter World War II/Home Front National Historical ParkÂŽ and is located in Richmond. The first Kaiser Shipyard was established in San Francisco Bay in December 1940 by Henry Kaiser. At that point, Kaiser was building ships for England. Your check in the amount of 3 cents might be of interest to the park or another historical society dedicated to World War II. Its value to a collector would be minimal. Q: Many fortunate baby boomers are inheriting their relativesÂ tea sets, but there seems to be no practical use for them. My ques-tion is, are they worth more than their weight in silver? I cannot find a set like mine. It was purchased 65 years ago in Mexico and is marked ÂPG Sterling Mexico.ÂŽ The handles on the lids are 3-D figures of dogs. The teapots, creamer and sugar are modern-looking flattened globes. Some of the handles and hinged parts look as if they were riveted in place.A: Your silver was made at Platerk Guadalajare in Guadalajara, Mexico. A modern-looking set with unusual trim like yours should sell for more than the meltdown value. But selling any silver-ware or silver jewelry is very tricky today. Dealers go to auctions and sales with a small scale to check meltdown value. Coin silver items, especially thin spoons, are not popular, so many are melted. Sets of silver knives, forks and spoons must be complete to sell. That means eight or 12 of each item. Only Georg Jensen Fruitful, festive bunnies predate Easter holidayKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terry KOVEL email@example.com O and Tiffany partial sets seem to sell. But Mexican silver, handmade American silver of the past 75 years, Danish silver and some types of English silver sell as art Â„ good design and popular makers attract higher prices. Because the cost of the metal has gone up so much in the past year, the value of your tea set has gone up. Even if you sell it for scrap, you will make a profit. Tip: Times change and products change, so shortcut tips for cleaning have changed too. DonÂt use tartar-control or whitening toothpaste to clean silver. DonÂt use grainy bread to clean wallpaper; just use plain commercial white bread. DonÂt use a feather duster; it just spreads dirt. Buy a new Âpicks-up-the-dustÂŽ cloth.

The fur-covered clockwork toy has glass eyes, wears a felt dress and carries a wicker basket. It was made in Ger-many probably about 1900 and sold for $633 at a Bertoia auction in Vineland, N.J. MONEY & INVESTINGShould you diversify because of the falling dollar?As the dollar continues to fall, the front and center discussion in international economics is whether the U.S. will lose its status as the worldÂs reserve currency. The U.S. dollar index has fallen 38 percent since 2001 and a whopping 53 percent since 1985. Can it fall further? It surely seems that way. Is it cause for concern? ItÂs billionaire Sam ZellÂs single biggest financial fear: ÂThe U.S. standard of living could drop 25 percent if the dollar loses its standing as the worldÂs reserve currency.ÂŽ (Source: ÂU.S. standard of Living in Peril From Dol-larÂs Weakness: Zell,ÂŽ CNBCnews.com, March 3.) The issue is of critical importance for the economic well being of the U.S., as history suggests. After World War II, Great Britain largely yielded its reserve status to the U.S. until full relinquishment in 1973 when oil switched to U.S. dollar pricing. Many believe that BritainÂs ensu-ing years of economic doldrums after 1973 were tied to reserve status loss. The issue is also of paramount importance for institutional and individual port-folios. If a dollar-denominated portfolio appreciates 10 percent on paper but the dollar loses 30 percent in value, the port-folio lost 20 percent in international valu-ation terms. If the investor is holding cash earning 1 percent, the loss of international purchasing power is a whopping 29 per-cent. What does it mean for a currency to be the ÂworldÂs reserve currency?ÂŽ It means it is the main currency of the world. In the case of the dollar, ÂIt is used in 85 percent of foreign exchange transactions, and serves as the currency of choice for 45 percent of international debt securi-ties and more than half of world exports.ÂŽ (Source: Carnegie Endowment for Inter-national Peace, William Shaw, ÂHow Long Will the Dollar Be King?ÂŽ) As such, our currency is used to price commodities and most anything globally traded. Oil is priced in U.S. dollars. Gold is priced in U.S. dollars, as is copper, corn, wheat and silver. If commodities are trad-ed in something other than dollars, the U.S. might well find itself in the position of much higher prices if the new reserve standard appreciated vis--vis the dollar... termed price inflation. What other impact would loss of reserve status have upon the U.S.? It might raise our borrowing costs and lessen demand for our debt. How so? Japan, China, Germany and India are all exporting much more to us than we are importing. These countries wind up with huge U.S. dollar holdings; they get paid more than what they spend in U.S. dollars. What do they do with these dollars? Buy U.S. Treasuries and make all other sorts of investments in the U.S.Âƒ equities, bonds, real estate, commodities, land, etc. Most would say that, absent the huge amount of U.S. dollars that foreigners had to Âpark,ÂŽ our borrowing costs would have been higher, our dollar amounts borrowed much less and our investment opportuni-ties curtailed. But The International Monetary FundÂs calculations of foreign reserve holdings of the U.S. dollar peaked in 1999 at 71 per-cent of all foreign reserves and, as of 2010 year end, had dropped to 62 percent. The British pound once held this position. But after World War II, the U.S. emerged as the worldÂs dominant power and our currency was the only major cur-rency easily convertible into gold (as we were on the gold standard until NixonÂs presidency). The shift away from the British pound began and, by 1973, Britain agreed that oil would no longer be traded in pounds. So donÂt think that such status canÂt be taken away; it already happened in our lifetime. Why was the dollar originally chosen? And are those reasons intact today? The U.S. was the worldÂs dominant economic and transactional power, account-ing for 50 percent of world GDP post World War II. Today we account for 30 percent. The U.S. dollar was once convertible into goldÂƒ a Âcertain.ÂŽ But when we came off the gold standard, our currency became a ÂfiatÂŽ currency, convertible into nothing. Over time, the developed countries moved from fixed exchange rates and adopted a ÂfloatÂŽ policy (i.e. freely traded currency markets would establish exchange values). The U.S. dollar is now neither strong nor stable nor convertible; it has fallen 53 percent since 1985. As to GDP power, we are still the leader but the BRICs have emerged as the engine of world growth and are garnering more and more of world GDP. The U.S. is running horrific budget deficits and its total debt bur-den, including off-the-books liabilities, exceeds our GDP. No wonder the dollar falls and reserve status is challenged. The U.S. is radically changed from the Âstrong dollarÂŽ world of the 1990s, yet many investors cling to a traditional port-folio of U.S. dollar denominated bonds and equities, sprinkled with some inter-national holdings. Maybe they think the 1990s scenario of oil prices at $30 a barrel, 3 percent unemployment, a further fall in interest rates of some 4 percent (into negative rates), a strong dollar and U.S. budget surpluses are around the corner. Speak to your adviser about the benefit of portfolio diversification that provides protection against a falling dollar. At the very least, understand the potentially severe consequences of a portfolio of cash or one that gains in U.S. paper terms but loses value vis--vis the other curren-cies of the world.

ÂNot unless she asks for your help.ÂŽ ÂBut if she lets me help her, I can make her problem go away,ÂŽ Phil says. The women all laugh. ÂThat is such a male thing to say,ÂŽ one remarks.

ÂSay a woman tells another about a personal problem and hears in response, ÂI know how you feelÂ or ÂThe same thing happens to me.Â The resulting Âtroubles talkÂ reinforces the connection between them,ÂŽ Dr. Tan-nen writes in the article. ÂBecause this is not a conversational ritual he is used to, a man may well misread her conversational gambit as a request for help solving the problem.ÂŽ The result, says Dr. Tannen, is frustration all around. ÂShe blames him for telling her what to do,ÂŽ she writes. ÂWhereas he thinks he did exactly what she requested and can-not fathom why she would keep talking about a problem if she does not want to do anything about it.ÂŽ A friendÂs brother, Jake, who is cute and athletic and funny but entirely anti-commitment, likes to dabble in easy romance. He meets women at salsa class or picks up wait-resses in coffee houses. He is notorious-ly untethered. Or he was. Until he met Chloe, a bright-eyed 23-year-old with all the fiery spunk and fierce independence it takes to intrigue a man like Jake. While he never used to worry about the thousand small efforts it takes to keep a relationship going, now he turns to his sister for advice, ask-ing every day what he can do to keep Chloe happy.

The Lighthouse ArtCenter provides the community with an annual calendar of exciting events, including major exhibitions, cultural events, School of Art classes and workshops, ArtCamps and the Art Outreach pro-gram. As a not-for-profit organization, the ArtCenter provides a variety of volun-teer and internship oppor-tunities for art admirers, techies, handy people and friendly neighbors interest-ed in serving the local arts community. ÂVolunteers are an essential part of our institution,ÂŽ said Evelyne Bates, who has been a part of the Light-house ArtCenter staff for 41 years, in a prepared statement. ÂWe wouldnÂt be able to get through the day if it wasnÂt for our ÂArt Angels!ÂŽ As the volunteer coordinator, Ms. Bates strives to keep the operation running smoothly by help-ing volunteers find their own productive ÂnichesÂŽ so they can complete important work while finding fulfillment and inspi-ration in their volunteer experiences. From greeting visitors, to passing hors dÂeouvres at event openings and assist-ing with art installations, volunteers are involved with nearly every function of the Lighthouse ArtCenter, so it can better serve the community. Currently there is a critical need for experienced or aspiring docents to lead daily afternoon exhibition tours, along with interns looking to gain valuable experience in the fields of marketing/communications, museum curation and art education. A docent-training program is in place in order to provide proper instruction to trainees so they can become informed teachers of all exhibition material. Ms. Bates says there are also a number of other areas in great need of volunteer help, includ-ing customer service, com-puter and technical help, administration and special events assistance. Lighthouse ArtCenter Executive Director Katie Deits says itÂs a goal of the organization to make volunteersÂ service worth-while for them. ÂWe value their time and commitment in helping us improve our operation as a fully-functioning ArtCenter,ÂŽ Ms. Deits said, Âand we want them to value the time they spend with us as well.ÂŽ Aside from receiving full credit for the hours they spend in service of the Light-house ArtCenter, volunteers and interns may use their volunteer opportunity at the ArtCenter and School of Art as a springboard for enhancing their personal education and professional experience.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2011 Dreams Illumination,ÂŽ plays the Kravis Center through April 24 as part of a national tour, before it heads overseas. Speaking from his Cirque Dreams Studios, a circus school, rehearsal space and design shop tucked away among warehouses in Pompano Beach, Gold-berg talks about his assault on Broad-way. ÂIt was a personal career passion and goal for me,ÂŽ says the 53-year-old New York transplant. ÂFrom a busi-ness standpoint, I learned very quickly that in the subscription series major markets around the country, the catch phrase, ÂDirect from Broadway,Â reso-nates with a lot of ticket buyers.ÂŽ That earlier showÂs New York stay was brief, but Âit opened a lot of doors,ÂŽ he beams. ÂIt most definitely confirmed the brand as a legitimate circus-type theater show that could play on a stage. There was always a question mark as to how does this genre, that has people fly-ing through the air and defying gravity, attract a legitimate theater audience.ÂŽ GoldbergÂs 18-year-old production company, which was long stalled by the Cirque du Soleil lawsuit, is now, pardon the expression, flying high. An abbrevi-ated version of ÂCirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy,ÂŽ a whimsical, plotless series of international variety acts loosely based on a jungle animal theme, is currently playing through the summer at TampaÂs Busch Gardens. A similar light-hearted take on dinner theater, ÂCirque Dreams and Dinner,ÂŽ is currently booked for an extended run on the Norwegian Epic cruise ship. And ÂCirque Dreams Illu-mination,ÂŽ GoldbergÂs pixilated vision of everyday urban life, is making friends for the franchise on the road. ÂIlluminationÂŽ first met audiences in 2007, when the show played casinos. As Goldberg explains, it Âis really about current, modern times, the many genres of entertainment that exist today on the streets. A lot of the influ-ence came from ÂSo You Think You Can Dance?Â ÂAmericaÂs Got Talent,Â ÂDancing With the Stars,Â ÂAmerican Idol,Â all those kind of things.ÂŽ In a cityscape, characters from various walks of life Â„ sailors, execu-tives, construction work-ers Â„ encounter fanciful props and employ them in their circus special-ties. ÂItÂs really every-day, ordinary people finding everyday, ordi-nary objects and doing extraordinary things with them,ÂŽ says Goldberg. Headlining the show is silent clown Martin Lamberti from Germany, playing a character that Goldberg dubbed ÂThe Vagabond.ÂŽ ÂYou meet him right from the onset of the show and heÂs with the trashcans, lifting the lids, the typical impression I think one would have of someone living on the streets today,ÂŽ notes Goldberg. ÂBut he just brings a smile to peopleÂs faces, and I think thatÂs impor-tant in entertainment today.ÂŽ Like most Cirque Dreams shows, this one has an original score, written by Jill Diane Winters. Hired by Goldberg a decade ago to sing in his very first show, ÂCirque Ingenieux,ÂŽ she stayed on to become the companyÂs resident composer. As she says of this showÂs music, ÂThereÂs influences, not just from the streets, but from Latin, from ballroom, from pop and rock. For many people, theyÂll hear that itÂs ÂurbanÂ and theyÂll think hip-hop. But itÂs so much more than that, thereÂs so many different styles of music.ÂŽ In its look at least, ÂIlluminationÂŽ is a distinct contrast from ÂJungle Fantasy,ÂŽ which played the Kravis Center three years ago prior to the showÂs move to Broad-way. ÂThe whole concept of the brand is that every show is uniquely differ-ent. It may not be cost effective for me as a busi-ness entrepreneur, but as a director and a showman, itÂs always about change and a constant evolution of the art, and being able to improve at what you do,ÂŽ Goldberg says. Goldberg has an undeniable knack for satisfy-ing audiences of all ages. ÂWell, I think ÂCirque Dreams IlluminationÂ is just an entertaining show,ÂŽ he says enthusiastically. ÂI think today there are so many distractions in life, so many hardships and so much stress, that to be able to enter a theater, pay an affordable ticket price and for two hours have this experience where you can laugh and you can be moved on so many different emotional levels, I think thatÂs a great reason to see any show. And I know ÂCirque Dreams IlluminationÂ delivers that.ÂŽ Q DREAMSFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOAerial artists are part of Neil GoldbergÂ’s production, playing through April 24 at the Kravis. >> CIRQUE DREAMS ILLUMINATION, Kravis Center Dreyfoos Hall, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.

O in the know You could call Yasmina RezaÂs Tony Award-winning play ÂGod of CarnageÂŽ a comedy of manners, as long as you emphasize that they are almost entirely bad manners. But this French playwright of Iranian extraction understands the al-chemy of turning bad manners into very good theater. She worked a similar trick a little over a decade ago Â„ and won her first Best Play Tony Â„ for ÂArt,ÂŽ the clash of three longtime buddies whose friendship is forever altered when one of them buys an expensive, yet minimalist painting. You can think of ÂGod of CarnageÂŽ as ÂArtÂŽ on steroids. The permutations of savagery increase as two married couples, well-off residents of BrooklynÂs gentrified Cobble Hill neighborhood, meet over coffee and a precious pastry known as clafouti to quietly and ra-tionally discuss the consequences of a violent playground scuffle between their 11-year-old sons. Be assured that the civility does not last long, and that is when the fun begins in a high-energy, highly profane produc-tion at Boca RatonÂs Caldwell Theatre, playing through May 15. The disintegration of decorum is exactly the point, as four nimble performers reduce a tidy, upscale living room to shambles in an efficient 85 intermission-less minutes. Guest director Kenneth Kay orchestrates the proceedings with skill and humor, moving his cast about the stage as their characters gang up on each other, forming and switching alli-ances as the situation requires. Veronica (Kim Cozort), a writer devoted to art and to humanitarian causes, begins with an effort to reconstruct the events that led to her son Henry being hit in the face by his classmate Benjamin, losing two teeth in the process. Financial compensation is not what she seeks, as much as an admission of BenÂs guilt and maybe an apology. But Alan, BenÂs father (Nick Santa Maria), is an attorney. That means that when he is not talking on his cell phone, managing damage control for his dubi-ous pharmaceutical client, he is arguing with Veronica over her word choices. AlanÂs wealth management specialist wife, Annette (Kim Ostrenko), initially embarrassed by his lack of interest in their sonÂs altercation, soon becomes physically ill from the stress of the situation. Credit Reza with inserting the best instance of onstage projectile vomiting within memory, and props to technical director Tim Bennett for rigging up such persuasive puke. Ultimately, though, the play revolves around VeronicaÂs husband Michael, a coarse, but direct purveyor of wholesale household goods. Or at least it seems that way, because of the standout per-formance by Michael Serratore as the tell-it-like-it-is affable host, who knows the value Â„ and danger Â„ of getting everyone drunk. As the alcohol level and the ÂfÂŽ bombs increase, it brings to mind another tale of living room blood-letting, Edward Al-beeÂs ÂWhoÂs Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,ÂŽ the dramatic flip side of RezaÂs romp. The CaldwellÂs reputation for first-rate design work remains intact, notably for BennettÂs living room-cum-wrestling ring-cum-sandbox set. It is a tribute to RezaÂs writing quality that you will probably identify with one of more of these characters, even if you have never been a parent. Or more likely, you will leave the Caldwell with a wide grin on your face, insisting that you know people just like these people.

'7*)OD:N\0RP0H$GYLQGG 30 Breast cancer is no laughing matter.But a group of comedians hopes to light en the mood and raise money for GildaÂ’s Club, which offers support to breast cancer patients and their families. Â“I havenÂ’t slept a wink in two weeks and my assistant, whoÂ’s my mother, is asking me Â‘Did you do this? Did you do that?Â’Â” says Lau ren Pottinger, a former member of The Jove Comedy Experience and producer of the Jiggles & Giggles Com edy Fest, scheduled for April 23 at the MosÂ’Art Theatre in Lake Park. Â“I did a show at Just the Funny (Comedy Theatre in Miami) for breast cancer awareness,Â” she says. Â“Thought I could bring to the Gardens area and make it a little bigger.Â” Ms. Pottinger is billing the event as a Â“uniquely hilarious fundraising event by women for women.Â” The show will include improv, sketch, musical and standup comedy. Performers include improvisers Alex Suarez-Mondshein, Katrina Morris, Maria Tomaino and Cindy Caldwell from Just the Funny, along with Aniela McGuinness from Laughing Gas. Ms. Pottinger, Danielle Bouloy and Lori Posdale will create sketch, improvisational and musical comedy. Â“We do have two stand-ups who are join ing us: Elizabeth Rodriguez and Wendy Starling,Â” Ms. Pottinger says. Â“Both com peted in the South Beach Comedy Festival, and theyÂ’ve opened for a lot of interesting people. The standup adds another level.Â” What is so special about performing? Â“ThereÂ’s such an adrenalin rush once you hit the stage,Â” says Ms. Pottinger, who has been improvising since college. Â“Once you get out there thereÂ’s this complete abject terror, then thereÂ’s the laughter.Â” And it doesnÂ’t hurt that she grew up here. Ms. Pottinger was born in Fort Lauderdale, but her family has lived in Palm Beach Gar dens about 22 years. She attended Grove Park Elementary School and graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School. She says she likes the MosÂ’Art Theatre.Â“MosÂ’Art is such an interesting space. I love everything about it. I love the art gal lery in the front,Â” she says. Â“I met the new owners, and it was instantly dynamic.Â” WhatÂ’s her inspiration for this benefit?Â“Gilda Radner is every comedianÂ’s inspi ration. ItÂ’s something thatÂ’s close to my heart,Â” Ms. Pottinger says. Â“I lost both my grandfathers to cancer and a great aunt to breast cancer. I just wanted to give back.Â” But giving back has its challenges.Â“ItÂ’s my first production and IÂ’m just writing checks,Â” she says. Â“We have a lot of local businesses that have donated items for silent auctions. And thereÂ’s a paintball date with me in there,Â” she says. Â“I went for my birthday last year. I turned 29 and thought paintball would be right up my alley.Â” How so?Â“IÂ’m gonna take someone with me Â— starting bid is $25. I hope someone will bid,Â” she says. Â“And I also have asthma and thatÂ’s an added benefit because you know youÂ’re gonna be able to shoot me a lot.Â” Q Comics to raise money for GildaÂ’s Club BY SCOTT SIMMONS____________________ssimmons@oridaweekly.comHop on down the bunny trail to these festivities marking Easter.

During the auditions, children will learn a dance routine, receive acting les sons and learn to sing as an ensemble. Â“We definitely try to make the process a fun experience,Â” Mr. Kato says. Â“We want it to be a joyous experience.Â” To get kids enthused, the Maltz staff will screen the movie of the musical in the lobby. Â“That way, they do not feel threatened by [the process],Â” Mr. Kato says. But what qualities do children need to have? Â“WeÂ’re looking for children who are easy to work with, who are excited,Â” says Julie Rowe, education director of the theaterÂ’s Conservatory of Performing Arts. Â“WeÂ’re just looking for children who work well with others take direc tion and have a positive outlook.Â” And that positive outlook bubbles from 9-year-old Lily Marie, a student of the MaltzÂ’s conservatory who plans to audition for Â“Joseph.Â” When asked what do when she grows up, Lily replies simply, Â“A star.Â” Really, a star?Â“I plan to be star, then make lots of money to share with my mother and my grandma,Â” she says with a giggle. Theater is fun, Lily says.Â“We get to dance, we get to sing and we get to have fun as a group,Â” she says. Lily didnÂ’t audition at last yearÂ’s First Step to Stardom, but this isnÂ’t her first attempt at show business. Â“IÂ’ve done a few talent shows at my summer camp,Â” she says. Then Lily and fellow student Jordan Beres, also 9, break into the song Â“Jel licle Cats,Â” from Lloyd WebberÂ’s Â“Cats,Â” which the conservatory students are per forming. Jordan, who lives in Jupiter, also plans to participate in First Step to Stardom. Jordan says she always has enjoyed sing ing. Â“I already know what IÂ’m going to be when I grow up,Â” she says. Â“A singer.Â” LilyÂ’s grandma, Pat Marie of Tequesta, chuckles as she listens to Lily and Jor dan. Â“Lily has a passion for this. SheÂ’s into horseback riding and takes voice les sons,Â” Ms. Marie says. Â“SheÂ’s a busy kid who keeps me busy.Â” And the music from Â“CatsÂ”? Â“The songs are in my head every night,Â” she says. She is bracing herself for the music from Â“Joseph.Â” Piper MacArthur also plans to audi tion at First Step to Stardom. Â“IÂ’m excited,Â” says 9-year-old Piper, who lives in Hobe Sound. Â“I mostly sing. I started a year ago.Â” Piper also will perform in the conser vatoryÂ’s production of Â“Cats,Â” and she says she is having fun with her role as Kovakix. Â“I get to be dramatic,Â” she says. Â“ItÂ’s a playful character.Â” Piper says she likes the music from Â“JosephÂ” and she likes the work of pre paring for a show. Â“IÂ’ve studied a lot here,Â” she says of the conservatory. Â“And I sometimes do it at home with my mom.Â” All of which furthers her dream.Â“I hope to grow into a theatrical career.Â” ItÂ’s that joy of performing and learning that keeps Ms. Rowe going. Â“ItÂ’s such an exciting opportunity,Â” says Ms. Rowe, well regarded as an actress in her own right. Â“To take guidance from the director who would be working with them, itÂ’s a lesson that you canÂ’t learn in a class.Â” What does she mean?Â“ItÂ’s the real thing to be on a profes sional stage, to be working with the professionals,Â” she says. Â“ItÂ’s a master class every day. You get to see how pro fessionals do it.Â” And the kids learn from each other.Â“What other students do teaches other students at the same time,Â” Ms. Rowe says. What about the parents?Â“We actually interview the parents,Â” Mr. Kato says. ItÂ’s important for them to know what kind of commitment these performances entail. And the theater tries to limit the influence of stage moms and dads. Â“When kids participate, we have their parents drop them off at the stage door,Â” he says. That being said, the theater will encourage parents to volunteer back stage. Last yearÂ’s auditions primarily drew children from Miami through the Trea sure Coast. Some kids even arrived from out of state. Says Mr. Kato, Â“I think IÂ’d like it to be an annual opportunity that we do a fam ily show that involves kids.Â” Q CHILDFrom page 1 >> First Step to Stardom auditions will be held noon-8 p.m. April 23 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

What we donÂt know is who exactly helped him do it, which is where ÂThe ConspiratorÂŽ comes in. Director Robert RedfordÂs film tells the story of Mary Surratt (Robin Wright), who was the only woman charged in the conspiracy to kill Lin-coln. The eight male conspirators, including MaryÂs son John (Johnny Sim-mons) and Mr. Booth (Toby Kebbell), met at her boardinghouse, and some of them roomed there. Had they discussed the assassination during those meet-ings? Did Mary know? According to James D. SolomonÂs script, it didnÂt matter. ItÂs clear early on that U.S. government leaders wanted anyone remotely associated with the assassination to be prosecuted immediately. ÂIn times of war, the law falls silent,ÂŽ lead prosecutor Joseph Holt says to MaryÂs lawyer, Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy), a decorated Union officer who was forced to take the case by Sen. Reverdy Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) and now must fight for a fair trial. WhatÂs fascinating about the story is that everyone is clearly doing what he believes is right, even if itÂs not ethically or morally correct. As Union loyalists, Mr. Aiken and Sen. Johnson despise Mary, but they also know they took an oath to uphold the law and will faith-fully defend the Constitution by trying to grant Mary a proper defense. On the flip side, Mr. Holt, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (Kevin Kline) and Judge David Hunter (Colm Meaney) are only interested in convicting and hang-ing Mary as quickly as possible. Their fear, understandably, is that Confederates in the South will take this as a sign of weakness in the now-United States, and another Civil War could potentially break out. They donÂt care about justice and fairness for Mary; they just need to send a message before things gets worse.The issues here offer an odd but imperative dynamic that is the hallmark of democracy: No matter how egregious the crime, all Americans are entitled to a fair trial. WhatÂs frustrating about the film, however, is the languid pace with which Mr. Redford tells the story. Yes, life was much slower in the 1860s, but as Mr. Aiken discovers more about Mary and her circumstances, the pace needs to quicken in order to build suspense toward the climax. For whatever reason, Mr. Redford, who certainly knows what heÂs doing both in front of and behind the camera, does not do this. Truthfully, all the pieces were in place for ÂThe ConspiratorÂŽ to be great: Com-pelling drama, great production design, phenomenal cast, etc. That the filmmak-ers forgot how to build tension is inex-plicable and unforgivable, but it doesnÂt undo what is an inherently fascinating story.

You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood. com and read more of his work at www. hudakonhollywood.com.Win Win +++ (Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Alex Shaffer) A down-on-his-luck attorney (Mr. Giamatti) with a family to support becomes the legal guardian of an elderly person (Burt Young) with dementia, but is thrown for a loop when the manÂs grandson (Shaffer) arrives in town. The performances are strong and itÂs a sweet story about unself-ishness and doing the right thing. This is a solid, well-made drama. Rated R.Your Highness ++ (James Franco, Danny McBride, Natalie Portman) Gallant Prince Fabious (Mr. Franco) and his brother Thadeous (Mr. McBride) embark on a quest to rescue FabiousÂ fianc (Zooey Deschanel) from an evil warlock (Justin Theroux). ItÂs not consistently funny, and it takes way too long for Natalie Portman (who plays a road warrior) to appear. Rated R.Arthur + (Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner) Spoiled millionaire playboy Arthur (Mr. Brand) must choose between his love for tour guide Naomi (Greta Gerwig) or his need for money, which would be ensured if he marries coldhearted businesswoman Susan (Ms. Garner). ThereÂs nothing to like about Arthur, both the character and the movie: TheyÂre unfunny, petulant and not worth our time. Rated PG-13.

A1A, Jupiter747-8878 +++++ Superb ++++ Noteworthy +++ Good ++ Fair + Poor in the know O No matter how objective I try to be, sometimes, enough reviews and conver-sations can lead to preconceived notions about a restaurant. So it is with Guanabanas Tiki Bar and Grill. First, I thought there was more emphasis on the ÂbarÂŽ than the Âgrill.ÂŽ The food in the past had been hit and miss for so many of my food friends, I was not expecting much. Just a good tropical atmo-sphere, and sturdy drinks Â„ a place to go hang and maybe get lucky with a dish or two. I also had heard service was jagged. So I was pleasantly surprised both times I went Â„ with decent, if not delectable food, and those sturdy drinks, served effi-ciently in the best manmade outdoor space a Floridian could ask for. It opened in 2004 as a riverside fish shack, serving pretty good food Â„ but few knew of it unless theyÂd taken a kayak trip from the nearby outfitters, or just happened on it. It reopened in 2008 after owners spent $2.8 million to turn it into an almost theme-park waterfront restaurant. I expect DisneyÂs tiki birds to pop out of the roof of the bar any minute singing. Parking is a block away in a shared lot with the neighboring SchoonerÂs Â„ or diners may use a valet. Dock space accom-modates those who come by sea. A friendly group of ladies greets you as you walk over a stone bridge, part of the man-made water feature. ThereÂs no evidence of the namesake guanabana trees that bear edible fruits (also known as soursop), but thereÂs a virtual forest of palm trees lit with rope lighting. Umbrella-shielded tables sprinkled below them have twinkle lights ab ove, and small spotlights illuminate the stone paths between them. A large tiki bar services the first-come, first-serve high tops and bar stools, but the dinner tables are meted out with a list and beepers. The average wait seems to be 45 minutes for Âfirst availableÂŽ Â„ if you insist on a waterside table, it can stretch to twice that, and of course, itÂs longer on perfect-weather weekends. With season winding down, things may ease. My first visit one early weeknight had us waiting an hour, but it was soothed by a gorgeous twilight, a Margarita and mojito. The Margarita was botched twice before we got the right one with no salt, but the resulting drink was delicious. Fresh mint and a good bit of rum in my mojito ($8.50 each) kept me happy. We found two beach chairs and just soaked up the pleasant night. If we had scored a high top, we could have ordered appetizers or sandwiches from the list. Our beeper flashed, and our server escorted us to the larger tiki room pep-pered with tables, most of which rimmed the bamboo railing overlooking the water-front beyond. ItÂs a little channel that feeds off the Jupiter Inlet and connects to the Intracoastal Waterway. An order of coconut fried shrimp ($9.95) proved a tasty tapas plate, with plenty to share. The coating was crispy, with the Florida pink shrimp cooked just right. A sweet chili sauce made a nice dip; though the coconut was sweet enough. The small house salad ($3.95) was a good size for a side, and the fresh mix of greens, ripe tomatoes and the Guanabana vinai-grette was tasty.Guanabanas has a lengthy menu, with an emphasis on fish, crab and shrimp, and a few ÂSouth of the BorderÂŽ offerings. But I didnÂt get past the specials: I wanted the Royal red shrimp and grits mlange ($18.95). I wish grits were a standard substitute item for most entre sides everywhere.These were creamy and a delicious foil for the sweet shrimp cooked in a slightly spicy sauce. Again, these crustaceans were perfectly cooked Â„ not tough, and defi-nitely fresh tasting. My dining mate wanted a sandwich, and chose a ÂFat Cuban.ÂŽ While it wasnÂt the best version of this classic roast-pork-cheese-pickle combo we tasted, it was OK. ItÂs served with Âsalt and pepper potato chipsÂŽ that were great Â„ on this visit. The service was pleasant and food arrived in a timely pace, but the tiki din-ing room is far-flung and our server took a while between visits. We had to flag a different one to request water. On a second visit with a friend, the projected 45-minute wait was only about 20 minutes. We had ordered some steamer clams to eat at the high top by the stage while we waited (a band plays Wednes-days, Fridays, Saturdays and some Sun-days, weÂre told). Our beeper went off and though the server assured us weÂd get our clams at the new waterside table, they were missing in action. We ordered another round of drinks instead Â„ my friendÂs special Mount Gay rum concoction of his own making (orange and grapefruit juices, 3 drops of Grenadine and Mount Gay) was perfectly blended and a bargain at $7 for the large glassful. I stayed my course with a Margarita again. Our server came and assured us the clams were going to follow us; she let us look over the menu to figure out what else weÂd like to have. My partner this night is a good egg about splitting plates and tasting this or that; we decided weÂd like a crab cake. ThereÂs not one on the appetizers list, so we asked if we could have a half-FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Delectable, fresh Florida fish await you at the tropical Guanabanas dining NOTES O Diners seeking a spot for Easter brunch have a variety of restaurants to choose from on April 24.

Q order of the two entre crab cakes ($22.95) as an appetizer. She barely hesi-tated to say yes. She returned to let us know our clams were going to take longer. They were sent to a wrong table. We eventually got ours, a dozen steamers ($8.95), served with melt-ed butter with roasted garlic and lemons. They were hot, but grit made us wince. (And when splitting them between two or more diners, offer more than one seafood fork, please.)The crab cake ($11.95 as an appetizer) followed. This was sheer delight Â„ a large cake of mostly lump crabmeat, bound softly with breadcrumbs Â„ not too much Â„ with red peppers and spice, cooked so it remained soft inside, but had a nice crunch on the outside. The spicy aioli served with it didnÂt take over the crab flavor Â„ fresh and moist. IÂll order these as an entre anytime.The fish tacos we decided to share came out piping hot Â„ the tortillas were wrapped in foil to keep warm and the fish served in a small-lidded bowl. We werenÂt expecting the fish to be in a stew, but that was its texture. Chunks of mahi were allegedly blackened Â„ this, too, was odd, since blackening usually requires searing. Nonetheless, it was tasty, if incorrectly described. The wet chunks of white flesh fish with the mix of spices and a smatter-ing of peppers could have been eaten on their own. Stuffed in a tortilla, with the spicy tomato-bean salsa, avocado sauce and queso fresco, this was fine eating. Again, fresh fish flavor was there. The menu states itÂs because the restaurant uses only fresh Florida seafood fished from sustainable fisheries Â„ never any imported crab, shrimp or fish. The diner has no way of checking that veracity, but a restaurant spokesperson assures me that itÂs true. The flavor was indicative of fresh fish in all my meals. We were served five flour tortillas, but only used four to finish off the ingredients, stuffing them as we did. A pile of warm tortilla chips on the side went quickly, too.
