MacArthur Beach park on long list for camping expansionFor the second time in just months, Gov. Rick Scott has created a furor involving Florida State Parks. The earlier firestorm involved a proposal to build world-class golf courses and luxury resorts in some state parks (with golfing legend Jack Nicklaus of Palm Beach Gardens awarded exclusive rights to build the courses). That plan died after it sparked widespread public opposition. This time, the controversy involves a proposal to place camp sites and spaces for recreational vehicles in up to 56 parks that currently prohibit such usage. At press time, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in Palm Beach County was on the list of 56 for possible camp-ing expansion. The Department of Environmental Protection is holding hearings on the proposals, but these hearings involve three parks elsewhere, so there are no imminent plans involv-ing the MacArthur, on the north end of Singer Island. And if opponents have their way, the DEPs plan will die a quick death, just as the golf course idea did. If the DEP presses ahead and opposition continues to be strong, the decision could ulti-mately rest with the governor and his Cabinet. This is a very slippery slope,Ž says Frank Jackalone, staff director for the Sierra Club. The governor acts like a bulldozer and does what he wants to do, regardless of the consequences.Ž As with the golf course proposal, the campground plan involves privatiza-tion. The new camp sites would be built and operated by private firms. Mr. Jackalone worries that scant concern will be given to environmental impact and aesthetic concerns. In fact, many critics say the idea is nothing but a money-making scheme and another sign of Gov. Scotts lack of interest in state parks. HE IS ONE OF PALM BEACH COUNTYS movers and shakers. But you might not know it when you first meet Jeffrey Berman. And thats just fine with him.He is unassuming, and seated alone in an office at the end of the hall. You knock at the door and he greets you. A mezuzah hangs on the doorframe, a fitting mitzvah for a third-generation developer whose mission is to revital-ize Downtown at the Gardens. These are not fancy offices. The space has an almost Spartan look, with a monochromatic dcor of creams and grays. License-plate sculptures adorn the walls of his office, which has a view of the upstairs passageway at Downtown. But those license plates are purely decorative. Mr. Berman is not into flashy cars „ his vehicle of choice is a 10-year-old Lexus. The fancy toys are for other businessmen. Mr. Berman „ and indeed, Berman Enterprises „ prefers a no-nonsense approach. Mr. Berman is young „ hes 32, but I look like Im 55,Ž he jokes. He has dark hair and a beard, and both are flecked with silver. But he works out and looks fit.He wears khakis and a polo shirt that sports a JBŽ monogram. Slippers are on his feet. He fidgets with poker chips, sending them clattering „ fwip!Ž „ from one hand to the other, then „ fwip!Ž „ clattering back again. That fidgeting helps him focus, he says.

PAGE 2 FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 It was a tragedy.There had been a downpour. From a kitchen window, a mother watched her 4-year-old son at play in the waterlogged front yard. The child moved perilously close to a drainage ditch that, in the clichd world of journalism, was rain-swollen.Ž The mother called out. The child did not hear. The mother dashed from the house to fetch her son, who stood on the lip of what had become a rushing river of mud and debris. She was about five seconds late.The soggy embankment gave way, and the little boy was gone. Just like that. The mother was so close. Their hands brushed as he disappeared beneath the brown waters. His body was found two miles downstream, entangled in a nest of water moccasins. A cub reporter for a small-town daily, I was dispatched to the scene. The final words from my managing editor as I left the newsroom were: Get quotes from the mother.ŽI spent about an hour interviewing cops, neighbors and family friends who stood vigil in the front yard. When I had exhausted every angle, I knew it was time to do what I dreaded most: walk the 20 yards or so to the front door, knock upon it and request an interview with a woman who had just seen her child pass from her life forever.My legs literally trembled as I approached that door. As I drew back my fist to knock, my muscles froze. This I could not do. I drove back to the newspaper in a cold sweat, plagued by two questions: Would I be fired for not even trying to speak to the mother? And was I cut out to be a reporter? Was I too timid, too soft to do this work? I knew a dozen reporters who not only would have knocked on that door, they would have cajoled and blustered until either the mother talked or someone physi-cally tossed them from the home. Back at the office, I obliquely informed my editor that the mother wasnt available. I was not dismissed. The larger question of whether I had the right stuff to be a reporter took longer to resolve. Eventually, I decided that I did. Granted, I could not knock on the door of a heartbroken mother, but I knew I could go toe-to-toe with arrogant, corrupt politicians. Likewise, I was absolutely certain that no amount of power, wealth or physical intimidation would deter me from pursuing a story that needed telling. Thus, I have remained a writer and a reporter and, for the most part, I have been delighted to be identified as such. Sadly, that feeling is eroding. These are dark times for the craft of journalism. Sensationalism, voyeurism and mean-spiritedness are the coin of the realm. Grieving mothers? Hell, they are small potatoes in todays hyper-heated media world. Recent events reinforce this notion. I will not dwell on the coverage of the Casey Anthony case, but it has been shameful. Witless crowds whipped into frenzies generated by incendiary questions from reporters and screeching commentary laced with cries for blood fill our television screens. Rather than catalogue every sin of the Anthony affair, Ill merely point to a couple of sorry examples. ABC News has paid Ms. Anthony more than $200,000 for licensingŽ rights involv-ing photos and videos. That is unconscio-nable. My second example requires but two words: Nancy Grace. If you dont know the mawkish Ms. Grace, count yourself as fortunate. Another example of journalism gone awry comes from Britain, where a sordid press scandal is growing. Rupert Mur-doch, the media baron whose holdings in the United States include Fox News and The Wall Street J ournal, has sh utter ed the 168-year-old tabloid News of the World in the wake of a telephone hacking scandal, which has gone on for years. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation neatly summarized the mess: Theƒ tabloid is accused of hacking into the cell phone messages of victims ranging from missing schoolgirls to grieving families, celebrities, royals and politicians in a quest for attention-grabbing headlines.Ž Back in the United States again, a recent Newsweek edition caused my flesh to crawl. The centerpiece was a ghoulish package promoted as Diana at 50: If She Were Here Now.Ž The premise was to envision what Princess Diana would be doing, saying and thinking were she living. It included doc-tored photographs of the late princess to give her the appearance of a 50-year-old woman. There was a mock Diana Facebook page. The pageŽ included imagined mes-sages, such as this one attributed to Sarah Ferguson: Hey, Sloane Ranger! Its been so long!!! When are we getting drinks?????Ž How sad that a once-proud publication like Newsweek has descended to this level. Im no prig. I love to read about a ripsnorting scandal as much as the next per-son. Yet I am keenly aware that the line between sensationalism and vivid storytell-ing is often vague. But there is indeed such a line, and as a Supreme Court justice said of pornography: I cant define it, but I know it when I see it. My favorite quote involving journalism came from the late Gerald Priestland, a respected British broadcaster. Journalists belong in the gutter because that is where the ruling classes throw their guilty secrets,Ž he said. Mr. Priestland had it right. Sometimes, in the pursuit of truth or the greater good or just a damn good story, a journalist must dirty his hands. He must deal with unsavory characters, explore distasteful subjects and go places he would otherwise avoid. There is a difference, however, between visiting Mr. Priestlands g utter and taking up permanent residence there, as many of my brethren have done. Ive made a lot of mistakes, and Ive written things I wish I hadnt. I havent always been true to the sanctimonious admoni-tions I have laid out in this column. Perfect I am not. Still, for all my foibles and failings, this I can state with assurance and pride. I did not knock on that grieving mothers door.

PAGE 4 FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 OPINION After it passed a robust immigrationenforcement measure last year, Arizona was practically expelled from the union. The great and good denounced the state for its Gestapo tactics. The Obama administration sued it. The profession-ally outraged announced boycotts. Ari-zona stood condemned before the world, a byword for hatred and defiance of federal law. And yet the Supreme Court recently implicitly ratified Arizonas leadership role on immigration enforcement. Its everyone else who is out of line, not Arizona. The Supreme Court upheld the states requirement that businesses use the fed-eral E-Verify system „ a database acces-sible through the Internet „ to confirm the legal status of employees. This is different from last years law saying that police should, when practicable, check the immigration status of suspected ille-gal immigrants, but the echoes are clear enough. The same critics (the business community and civil-rights groups) used the same tactics (loud condemnations and lawsuits) over the same essential issue (whether the state had gone beyond federal law). Congress has been adept through the years at passing laws and programs notionally targeting illegal immigration, but with no intention of acting on them. Its enforcement by pretense. Arizonas offense is to take the federal law at face value and act on it. So if Congress creates a widely ignored voluntary sys-tem to verify the status of employees, Arizona will actually use it as a tool of enforcement. According to an Institute for the Study of Labor report, Arizona accounts for one-third of all employers nationwide enrolled in E-Verify. Roughly 700,000 of Arizonas new hires between October 2008 and September 2009 were checked with E-Verify, about half of all the states new hires. This increased attention to the legal status of employees has had the effect any reasonable person would expect „ it has made it harder for illegal immi-grants to get jobs and therefore made Arizona less hospitable terrain. The Institute for the Study of Labor finds a statistically significant reduction in the states population of Hispanic non-citizens, a category overlapping heavily with illegal immigrants. The result holds even accounting for the recession. The study looked at Arizonas population of Hispanic naturalized citizens „ who are obviously not targeted by the law „ and found no such decline.The Supreme Court decision will encourage other states to follow Arizonas lead. Already, South Carolina, Utah and Mississippi have passed similar laws. As more and more states make E-Verify man-datory, it will make more sense for Con-gress to require the system nationwide. There are shopworn objections to any kind of immigration enforcement. We are told that the simple expedient of building a fence on our southern bor-der is a gross un-American symbol of exclusion. Is it also un-American to ask that employers do a few clicks of due diligence to ensure that they are abiding by the nations laws? We are told we cant deport 11 million people. Is it impossible, too, to make it a little harder to come here and find a job? Slowly, we are beginning to move from a culture of permissiveness to a culture of enforcement on illegal immigration. For that, we can all say, Thank you, Arizona.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Yes, we can enforce immigration laws rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O PublisherMichelle Nogamnoga@floridaweekly.comEditorBetty Wells Reporters & ColumnistsScott Simmons Athena Ponushis Tim Norris Jan Norris Hap Erstein Mary Jane Fine Roger Williams Artis Henderson Jeannette Showalter Bill CornwellPhotographersScott B.

Julian Assange, the founder of the whistle-blower website, was mak-ing his way by train from house arrest in Norfolk, three hours away, to join me and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek for a public conversation about WikiLeaks, the power of information and the impor-tance of transparency in democracies. The event was hosted by the Frontline Club, an organization started by war correspondents in part to memorialize their many colleagues killed covering war. Frontline Club co-founder Vaughan Smith looked at the rare sunny sky fret-fully, saying, Londoners never come out to an indoor event on a day like this.Ž Despite years of accurate reporting from Afghanistan to Kos ovo, Smith was, in this case, completely wrong. Close to 1,800 people showed up, evidence of the profound impact WikiLeaks has had, from exposing torture and cor-ruption to toppling governments. Assange was in England awaiting an extradition hearing, as he is wanted for questioning in Sweden related to alle-gations of sexual misconduct. He has not been charged. He has been under house arrest for more than six months, wears an electronic ankle bracelet and is required to check in daily at the Norfolk police station. WikiLeaks was officially launched in 2007 in order to receive leaked infor-mation from whistle-blowers, using the latest technology to protect the anonym-ity of the sources. The organization has increasingly gained global recognition with the successive publication of massive troves of classified documents from the U.S. government relating to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and thousands of cables from the U.S. embassies around the world. Of the logs from the two wars, Assange said that they provided a picture of the everyday squalor of war. From children being killed at roadside blocks to over a thousand people being handed over to the Iraqi police for torture, to the reality of close air support and how modern military combat is done ... men surren-dering, being attacked.Ž The State Department cables are being released over time, creating a steady stream of embarrassment for the U.S. government and inspiring outrage and protests globally, as the classified cables reveal the secret, cynical operations behind U.S. diplomacy. Cablegate,Ž as the largest State Department document release in U.S. history has been dubbed, has been one of the sparks of the Arab Spring. People living under repressive regimes in Tunisia and Yemen, for exam-ple, knew their governments were cor-rupt and brutal. But to read the details, and see the extent of U.S. government support for these dictators, helped ignite a firestorm. Likewise, thousands of Haiti-related cables analyzed by independent newspa-per Haiti Liberte and The Nation maga-zine revealed extensive U.S. manipula-tion of the politics and the economy of that country. (This column was men-tioned in one of the Haiti cables, refer-encing our reporting on those critical of the Obama administrations post-earth-quake denial of visas to 70,000 Haitians who had already been approved.) One series of cables details U.S. efforts to derail delivery of subsidized petroleum from Venezuela in order to protect the business interests of Chevron and Exx-onMobil. Other cables show U.S. pres-sure to prevent an increase in Haitis minimum wage at the behest of U.S. apparel companies. This, in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. For his role as editor in chief of WikiLeaks, Assange has faced numerous threats, including calls for his assas-sination. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden called him a high-tech terrorist,Ž while Newt Gingrich said: Julian Assange is engaged in terrorism. ... He should be treated as an enemy combatant, and WikiLeaks should be closed down per-manently and decisively.Ž Indeed, efforts to shut down WikiLeaks to date have failed. Bank of America has reportedly hired several private intel-ligence firms to coordinate an attack on the organization, which is said to hold a large cache of documents revealing the banks potentially fraudulent activities. WikiLeaks has prepared to sue Mas-terCard and Visa, which have stopped processing credit-card donations to the website. The extradition proceedings hold a deeper threat to Assange: He fears Swe-den could then extradite him to the U.S. Given the treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of leaking many of the documents to WikiLeaks, he has good reason to be afraid. Manning has been kept in solitary confinement for close to a year, under conditions many say are tantamount to torture. At the London event, support for WikiLeaks ran high. Afterward, Julian Assange couldnt linger to talk. He had just enough time to get back to Norfolk to continue his house arrest. No matter what happens to Assange, WikiLeaks has changed the world forever.

PAGE 6 FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 maria MARINO O With the dog days of summer upon us and a threat of rain in the air, it would be easy to hide out in our air conditioned offices, homes, or even The Gardens Mall. But we are Floridians and, more than that, we are golfers. And what do local golfers do in the sum-mer? We finally get a chance to enjoy the game we love so much as we dodge those after-noon showers. During the winter months, better known as season, most locals are sequestered in their offices. Daylight is short and filled with work, while on the golf course rounds are often long and filled with snowbirds. So, as we experience the setting sun at our backs while striding up to the 18th green, our memories revert to those times when as a new golfer there were not enough hours in the day, or when as a young golfer all you wanted was one more chance to hear the ball drop in the hole. Others, like me, remember Summertime, and the memberships get easierpracticing at the local municipal course.The course had a bunker adjacent to the parking lot, which just happened to be brightly lit at night by a street lamp. Using that lamp as my only source of light I would practice for hours in search of the perfect bunker shot. Our long sun-filled days are what make summer memberships worthwhile. How many of you have been in the last golf cart to arrive at the clubhouse as the sun was dipping onto the horizon? We are lucky to have so many clubs offer summer memberships. Julie Kintz, a local golf professional, told me summer memberships are a way to get people in the door. If they find the course to their liking, maybe they will grow from a summer member-ship to an annual membership.Ž A perfect example is Jonathans Landing, with its three courses. I chose to build my first home in Jupiter at Old Trail, one of Jonathans Landings two golf courses west of town. During my first year in Palm Beach County I was fortunate enough to play a round at Jupiter Hills and experience a course with exquisite landscaping. You may be thinking to yourself, what does that have to do with Old Trail? The Hills Course at Jupiter Hills Golf Club is the reason I fell in love with Tom Fazio-designed courses. In an earlier article, I wrote about Jupiter Hills regal clubhouse and glorious vista. The vistas include a natural dune that runs north along U.S. Highway One into Jonathan Dickenson State Park, the Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic, and maybe, with a telescope, you might see Tiger Woods new compound. Nature and preserves border most of the Hills Course. It is called this because of the natural change in terrain provided by the dune. The second course is called the Village Course as it winds its way through the quiet elegance of estate homes. The first time I played the Hills Course, I was taken aback by its beau-ty, vegetation and obvious natural changes in elevation. Who would have thought there would be hills in South Florida? I would have to say the 18th hole is, to this day, one of the hard-est finishing holes I have ever played. Running away from the setting sun, this 399-yard par 4 from the white tees finishes with a climb up the dune to a green just waiting to reward you for your good shot or penalize you for one that went astray. Now that you have a taste of what Jupiter Hills is like, I will explain why I am relating this to Old Trail. The Fazio course at Old Trail, also designed by Tom Fazio, is what Jupiter Hills would be like without the hills. Silly as that may sound, Fazio was again able to capture the native feel of the terrain and landscape, even though there are no hills. A summer membership here is worth the money because you will GOLF Green Advertising is collecting preowned golf equipment to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County. The program, Clubs for Kids, will be accepting donations at several locations between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. July 18-22 and July 25-29. Equipment can be dropped off at the Boynton Beach Mall in the guest ser-vices booth, at the Town Center Mall in the business office, and at Green Advertising on North Federal Highway in Boca Raton. The Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County plans to modify the clubs so the kids can participate in weekly golf outings. For more information, see or call 954-776-1999, Ext. 222. Q Used golf clubs to benefit kids always have access to one of three courses, though one or even two may be closed.In addition, some summer memberships have reciprocal agreements with other clubs. For example, if you pur-chase a summer membership at East-pointe Golf & Racquet Club, you will enjoy reciprocals at North Palm Beach Country Club and Ironhorse Country Club, just to name a few. Reciprocals come in handy when courses close at least one day a week during the summer. Usually its on Mon-day or Tuesday, a time when clubs host outside tournaments or give staff a much-needed day off. At times a course may be closed for two or three weeks for maintenance. Seminole is closed the entire summer. If you are a member at Seminole you dont need a reciprocal agreement because you are a member somewhere else or in many cases, a member at many other clubs. So, now that the snowbirds have flown North for the summer and the fairways are wide open, how many holes will you play? Here are some courses that offer summer membership: „ Abacoa Golf Club, Jupiter „ Atlantis Country Club, Atlantis „ Binks Forest Golf Club, Wellington „ Breakers West, West Palm Beach „ Eastpointe Golf & Racquet Club, Palm Beach Gardens „ Evergreen Club, Palm City „ Fountains Country Club, Lake Worth „ Hobe Sound Golf Club, Hobe Sound „ Ibis Golf & Country Club, West Palm Beach „ Indian Springs, Boynton Beach „ Ironhorse Country Club, West Palm Beach „ Jonathans Landing, Jupiter „ Monarch Country Club, Palm City „ North Palm Beach Country Club, North Palm Beach „ President Country Club, West Palm Beach „ Tequesta Country Club, Tequesta „ Turtle Creek Club, Tequesta „ Village Golf Club, Royal Palm Beach „ Westchester Country Club, Boynton Beach „ Winston Trails Golf Club, Lake Worth Q „ Maria Marino is a professional golfer who teaches nationally for the LPGA and locally at the First Tee of the Palm Beaches at Dyer Park.

MICHAEL PAPA Chiropractor/Clinic Director Illegal by a hairOn May 21, Jesse Robinson either established or tied the unofficial world record for unluckiest underage drinker of all time when he was booked into the Hamilton County, Ohio, jail for under-age consumption. According to booking records, Robinsons date of birth is May 22, 1990. Q Government in action Common sense lost its voice on this one,Ž concluded a Wethersfield, Conn., city councilman, lamenting the local school boards having spent at least $630,000 to resolveŽ an ethics complaint against the boards chairwoman „ all because her son had improperly taken a $400 high school course for free. The towns ethics board conducted more than 60 hours of hearings over 11 months, incurring $407,000 in legal expenses, and finally voted, 3-2, to uphold the complaint. (However, the ethics board ordered only that the chairwoman reim-burse the $400; the school board then voted to pay all her legal expenses.) Science does not trump the testimony of individuals,Ž said Detroit pros-ecutor Marilyn Eisenbraun, explaining her offices decision in April to disregard DNA evidence that the University of Michigans Innocence Clinic said exonerates Karl Vin-son, 56, who has spent 25 years in prison for rape. Despite the science, Ms. Eisen-braun said she had to stick with eyewitness identification by the victim. Although Mr. Vinson has been eligible for release for 15 years, the parole board keeps turning him down „ because he refuses to acknowl-edge guilt. (Update: In July, the Michigan Court of Appeals declined to order either Mr. Vinsons release or a new trial, but did grant him an extraordinary right to appeal, based on the new evidence.) In June, as five young men gathered around the Mount Tabor Reservoir near Portland, Ore., one urinated in it, thus contaminatingŽ the 7.2 million gallons that serve the city, and, said Water Bureau administrator David Shaff, necessitating that the entire supply be dumped. Under questioning by the weekly Portland Mercu-ry whether the water is also dumped when an animal urinates in it (or worse, dies in it), Mr. Shaff replied, certainly not. If we did that, wed be (dumping the water) all the time.Ž Well, asked the reporter, whats the difference? Because, said Mr. Shaff (sounding confident of his logic), Do you want to be drinking someones pee?Ž A 53-year-old man committed suicide in May by wading into San Francisco Bay, 150 yards offshore, and standing neck-deep until he died in the 60-degree water, with police and firefighters from the city of Alameda watching from shore the entire time. Said a police lieutenant, Were not trained to go into the water (and) dont have the type of equipment that you would use ....Ž KGO-TV attributed the reluctance to budget cuts that prevented the citys firefighters from being recertified in water rescues. Title IX of the federal Civil Rights Act requires universities to offer equalŽ intercollegiate athletic access to females, even though finding that many serious female athletes is difficult on some cam-puses. The easiest subterfuge, according to an April New York Times report, is to pad womens teams with whimsically enlisted females -and in some cases, with males. Said former university president (and Health and Human Services Secre-tary) Donna Shalala, Those of us in the business know that universities have been end-running Title IX for a long time, and they do it until they get caught.Ž Sample dysfunctional result: When University of South Florida added football (100 male players) a few years ago, it was forced to populate more female teams, and thus recruitedŽ 71 women for its cross-country team, even though fewer than half ran races and several were surprised to know they were even on the team when a Times reporter inquired. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATECriminals with chutzpah Gregory Snelling, 41, was indicted in June for the robbery of a KeyBank branch in Springfield, Ohio, which was notable more for the foot chase with police after-ward. They caught him, but Snelling might deserve styleŽ points for the run, covered as he was in red dye from the money bag and the fact that he was holding a beer in his hand during the entire chase. It was a 2004 gang-related murder that had frustrated Los Angeles police for four years until a homicide investigator, paging through gangbangers photographs for another case, spotted an elaborate tattoo on the chest of Anthony Garcia. Evidently, that 2004 killing was such a milestone in Garcias life that he had commemorated the liquor store crime scene on his chest. The investigation was reopened, eventually leading to a sur-reptitious confession by Mr. Garcia and, in April 2011, to his conviction for first-degree murder. (Photos from Mr. Garcias several bookings between 2004 and 2008 show his mural actually evolving as he added details „ until the crime scene was complete enough that the investigator recognized it.) Q Great artBritains Ben Wilson is one artist with the entire field to himself „ the only painter who creates finely detailed mas-terpieces on flattened pieces of chewing gum found on London sidewalks. Fre-quently spotted lying nearly inert on the ground, working, Mr. Wilson estimates he has painted many thousandsŽ of such canvases,Ž ranging from portraits and landscapes to specialized messages (such as listing the names of all employees at a soon-to-be-closed Woolworths store). According to a June New York Times dispatch, Mr. Wilson initially heats each piece with a blowtorch, applies lacquer and acrylic enamel before painting „ and sealing with more lacquer. And of course he works only with tiny, tiny brushes. Q Least-competent non-criminalsIn May, in Rensselaer, N.Y., and in June, in Bluefield, W.Va., two men, noticing that police were investigating nearby, became alarmed and fled out of fear of being arrest-ed since both were certain that there were active warrants out on them. Nicholas Vol-mer, 21, eventually escapedŽ into the Hud-son River and needed to be rescued, but the police were after someone else, and no war-rant was on file against him. Arlis Dempsey Jr., 32, left his three kids on the street in Bluefield to make a run for it before police caught him, but he was not wanted for any-thing, either. (Both men, however, face new charges „ trespassing for Mr. Volmer, and child endangerment for Mr. Dempsey.) Q

It was the Rockville, Md., companys first foray into Florida. This is a lot of bricks and mortar for what we paid for it,Ž Mr. Berman says. The company will not say what it paid for the property, and Mr. Berman says of the purchase price, I dont think thats important. Were pouring millions into it. Thank God people are really taking it in.Ž That was not always the case.The $150 million shopping complex had opened amid great fanfare in 2005, then foundered and began to die. Res-taurants such as Rosa Mexicana, Maxs Grille, City Kitchen and The Strip House quietly slipped away, leaving it with a few large anchor tenants, such as Whole Foods, The Yard House, RA Sushi, a Cheesecake Factory, Toojays, a cinema and a lot of empty spaces. The 337,000-square-foot Downtown had begun to resemble the urban cores of so many cities „ shutter ed storefronts, empty sidewalks. By the end of 2009, when Berman took over the property, it was about 30 percent unoc-cupied.Downtown renewalIt seemingly was a daunting task, but Mr. Berman took it in stride. Our job was comparably easy. This place was already built,Ž he says, not-ing that there wasnt much else in the area 20 years ago, when The Forbes Co. built The Gardens Mall. To do what Forbes did, that really takes some gumption,Ž he says. But it took vision to see the possibilities at Downtown. To that end, the company worked to engage new businesses. Jeffrey Berman frequently visits a business to see how it operates and to see if it would be a good fit with his center. Case in point: Paris in Town Caf, at PGA Boulevard and U.S. 1, which recently opened Paris in Town Le Bis-tro at Downtown. He paid an anonymous visit at the caf, had a meal, and arranged to meet the owners. When they took over Downtown at the Gardens, I really liked their strat-egy of how to bring tenants in,Ž says Beni Himmich, co-owner of Paris in Town. Their strategy is to go around and look at businesses that are success-ful and offer them incentives to come here.Ž To Mr. Himmich, that makes good sense. They got a good deal on the business and are trying to extend that to the tenants,Ž he says. We like them. Its been a real positive experience with them,Ž says Mr. Himmichs wife and business part-ner, Diane. We feel their support in wanting us to succeed. They have created a real nice feeling among the tenants.Ž Jaana Moisio, owner of Palm Beach Tots, a childrens furniture retailer at Downtown, agrees. The reason I ended up with the store is that Berman Enterprises found me online, and told me what they wanted to do with their plaza,Ž Ms. Moisio says. She says she has been impressed with Mr. Bermans international career and says her business has been a good fit with the other family-oriented busi-nesses nearby. Diego Baner, whose Caffe Duomo closed in May, sees things differently. He opened Caffe Duomo in October 2009, and had great expectations. Mr. Baner, a classically trained singer with an international career, organized opera nights at Downtown that were a big draw. Of course, every opening night they organized we were packed and with the right people, too „ people who spend money, who buy panini and sandwiches and coffee,Ž he says. Other nights, people bought coffee and maybe that was it.Ž Mr. Baner envisioned a place that emphasized the fine arts and served as a counterpoint to the retail center that is The Gardens Mall. The fact is that during the past year, things changed a lot at Downtown,Ž he says. They are taking a cue from City-Place, with rock bands and such.Ž That didnt sit well with Mr. Baners customers. Many people came to the store asking when there would be more opera nights,Ž he says. Downtown at the Gardens is not similar to CityPlace. Its an older, more sophisticated crowd.ŽCrowds of all agesMr. Berman will not comment on Mr. Baners remarks, but says the family-centric events the center has scheduled draw crowds of all ages, including Downtowns Weekend Kick-off and its Celebrate Saturdays concert series, as well as the kid-friendly businesses near the recently restored vintage carousel, such as A Latte Fun, Palm Beach Tots and the yogurt shop Fro-Yotopia (Im literally addicted to it,Ž he says). Field of Greens, the sandwich and salad spot, is moving from Midtown to Downtown at the Gardens. Its scheduled to open this month, pending permits. And Grimaldis, the coal-fired pizza restaurant, has opened near the theater entrance and is testing a take-out win-dow. An escalator Berman Enterprises built near the theater drops passengers off in front of Grimaldis. It doesnt hurt that they have a theater with over 80,000 clients a year within shooting distance,Ž Mr. Berman says. The hip Dirty Martini lounge and tony 51 Supper Club and Lounge also recently have opened along the cen-ters east side. Initially, the Bermans offered incentives to draw new tenants. We believed retailers struggled with very high lease rates,Ž he says. The incentives have worked, Mr. Berman says. Were now leased at 80 to 90 percent,Ž he says. The deals are pretty much gone.Ž Over the long haul, he says Downtown should be a good investment. This is a very up and coming area,Ž he says. Palm Beach Gardens looks like what Boca did 10 years ago.ŽInternational careerMr. Berman, who says he is single but dating someone, should know a thing or two about life in other areas. As with his siblings and cousins, Mr. Berman spent a year in Israel. Then, after graduating with degrees in finance and general business from New York Universitys Stern School of Business, he moved to Moscow to spearhead international ventures with Berman affiliate TriGlobal Part-ners. That allowed him to see philosophical differences between the United States and the rest of the world. Theres a fundamentally different spirit in America vs. Europe,Ž says Mr. Berman, who speaks three languages. In America, someone sees a person driving a nice car and says, Maybe I can get something like that. In Europe, they ask, How can I take that. I dont believe Facebook could have been created there.Ž That entrepreneurial spirit, which Mr. Berman says is so uniquely Ameri-can, inspires the changes at Down-town. And its part of lessons learned while growing up. A lot of kids go to summer camp. We went to business camp,Ž he says. We didnt grow up without the appre-ciation of the value of a dollar.Ž And that in turns inspires the familys low-key approach. When you live at or above your means, you are mortgaging your future,Ž Mr. Berman says. And being charitable is part of living within those means. We have a very philanthropic bent in our family,Ž he says. You have a little, you give a little. You have a lot, you give a lot.Ž Many of the Berman familys contacts can do just that. Friends down here are of extreme means,Ž Mr. Berman says, adding that he met former General Electric CEO Jack Welch at Downtown. What it is, is that theres a lot of captains of industry here,Ž he says. We have a lot of bold-faced names down here. A Berman as a bold-faced name? I hope not.Ž Really?Under the radar is good; notoriety, not so much,Ž he says with a laugh. And fwip!Ž „ the poker chips clatter again. Q DOWNTOWNFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOThe 337,000-square-foot Downtown at the Gardens was approaching a 30 percent vacancy rate when Berman Enterprises took it over in 2009.

Berman and I. Wolford Berman founded the company in 1952. Melvin Berman had left his home in Defuniak Springs, in Floridas Panhan-dle, at 17 during the Great Depression and hitchhiked to Baltimore to work for an uncle who owned a dairy store. Melvin learned the business, partnered with local distributor Arthur Robinson and called for his younger brother Wolford to join him. Together, they built a large dairy company that served the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., corridor. They owned a large plant and significant land holdings in the Laurel, Md., area. The brothers built their first shopping center, and others followed. By 1962, they divested themselves of their dairy business and focused on development. They went on to build some of that areas major shopping centers, and the company was noted for not billing until the customer was satisfied. In 1972, Wolfords eldest son Gary, and in 1973, Melvins second son Den-nis, joined their fathers real estate operation. Their first jobs included property management of the familys shopping centers. Along the way, Gary and Dennis Berman formed BECO management in the mid-90s, and later devoted themselves to charitable pursuits, paving the way for the third generation of Bermans to take control of the company. Garys eldest son, Kevin, and Dennis second son, Brian, joined the family business in 2001 and 2002. According to the company, Kevin and Brian were required to learn each aspect of development, right down to operating heavy machinery, lay-ing brick, electrical and plumbing and trawling concrete. In 2004, Jeffrey Berman, Dennis eldest son, joined the business and in 2005 moved to Moscow to expand the companys non-real estate ventures and co-founded Triglobal Strategic Ventures, a consulting and invest-ment company focused on connect-ing American and Eastern European interests. Between 2008 and 2010, Garys youngest son, Casey, Garys second son, Adam, and Dennis fifth son, Ben, joined the family business. Casey and Adam joined Brian in Maryland, and Ben moved to Florida to work with Jeffrey on leasing at Downtown. According to its website, Berman now owns or manages more than 6.5 million square feet of commercial office and retail space. Q It’s all about family at Berman Enterprises COURTESY PHOTOThe management of Berman Enterprises has passed on to the third generation. The brothers and cousins now involved include Casey, left, Adam, Kevin, Jeffrey, Brian and Ben Berman. >> A Berman perspective>> Jeffrey Berman, who handles leasing at Downtown at the Gardens, offers his thoughts on life in Palm Beach Gardens and beyond:>> On the city: ”Palm Beach Gardens has been phenomenal. It’s like a Monet. Get up close and you can see the distinct parts. Pull back and they look the same.”“The city understands that every situation is unique. There is exible thinking. They’ve been phenomenal.”>> On dining at Downtown: “I get into these ruts where I eat the same thing.” Mr. Ber-man says he likes the chicken sandwich at Cabo Flats, the seared ahi at The Yard House and the grilled cheese at Cheesecake Factory. He also is glad Grimaldi’s has opened. “Obviously, I am a pizza lover. I can eat three pizzas in one day.”>> On international living: “We all lived in Israel for a year. You read about the con ict, but if you don’t see the realities on the ground…. Living abroad really gives you a unique perspec-tive. It’s been a gift.” >> On his family: “My parents and family are like a circle looking outward. It’s in a rational self-interest to do things because you have to do things to make a better world for our family.”>> On maturing: “After age 22, I realized you’re just getting older. The best part of getting older is getting to see the nieces and nephews growing up.” O in the know BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@”


A10 WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 I really question whether the governor supports the concept of state parks,Ž says Mr. Jackalone. This seems to be just another example of his indif-ference.Ž Currently, 53 of Floridas 160 state parks allow camping. According to the DEP, those campsites are full almost the entire year. Moreover, the DEP says the campgrounds host more than 2 mil-lion visitors and generate more than $15 million in revenue annually. The DEP further says that although private firms will be involved, the state will exercise strict oversight to ensure that environmental and aesthetic con-cerns are addressed. (The state) will retain full control over all aspects of planning, design, construction and operation of the new facilities to ensure consistency with the mission and quality standards of the state park system,Ž the DEP said in its proposal. Thisƒexpansion of camping opportunities will increase the level of public benefits state parks provide, enhance the economic benefits of state parks, create jobs and move the state park system closer to economic self-sufficiency,Ž the proposal also stated. The DEP originally identified four parks for immediate consideration. At a public hearing in Dunedin, oppo-nents turned out by the hundreds to protest plans to bring camping to Honeymoon Island, the states most popular park and one of the four parks identified for immediate con-sideration, according to a report in the St. Petersburg Times. How serious were the naysayers?The Times reported that a member of the Florida Native Plant Society vowed, This group will lay down in front of the bulldozers before we let this happen.Ž After getting an earful at the Dunedin hearing, the DEP announced days later that it would abandon its plans for Honeymoon. No date has been set for a decision regarding the remaining three parks. Q PARKSFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOThe park is on the long list of parks where camping could be expanded.

Both forms of medi-cine are widely accept-ed around the world. However, there is a vast difference of years, practice and experience pertaining to Chinese medicine. Our bodies actually have three pulses, which can be found along the side of each wrist. When palpating the left wrist the first pulse indicates how the heart is beating. This is generally an accepted practice used for traditional medicine physicians. However, below this pulse point there can be found the liver and kidney „ Yin „ functions as well. On the right wrist the uppermost pulse is the lungs, followed by the spleen and kidney „ Yang. Each one of these pulses are palpated in an effort to determine how the individuals body is operating. There needs to be a balance between Yin and Yang. When there is a malfunction on either side, the body is said to be in disharmony and disease is eminent. In both kinds of practices, a new patient is required to complete a patient history, and receives a thorough consultation and examination. Here is where the main dif-ference arrives. In Chinese medicine, the body is palpated in an effort to determine if a pathway or meridian is blocked, which would cause a dysfunction to the particu-lar organ of that area. In traditional medi-cine, when the body is examined it is for the sole purpose of finding the pain and treating it, not the body as a whole, as is the way of Chinese medi-cine. In Chinese medi-cine, once the spots of discomfort are deter-mined, acupuncture needles of varying sizes are inserted in an effort to open the pathways to re-establish harmony and good health to the individual. For example, if a patient has a headache, a traditional phy-sician would more than likely order blood work and X-rays prior to determining a treatment plan. The physician might advise the patient to use some over-the-counter headache medicines to decrease the pain. A physician practicing Chinese medicine would consider the patients complaint but would examine the entire body and start treating the complete body and not just the head pain or symptoms. It is believed that if there is a blockage from one or more pathways, multiple organs are being affected and the pressure in the head is the result of this dysfunction.

PAGE 12 FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 Jason put his hands over his ears in disgust. Does my mother honestly think I cant hear her in the next room when shes bad-mouthing my father?Ž She tries to make it seem like shes putting in an effort to be fair, but some-times I think she deliberately wants to turn me against Dad,Ž says Jason (not his real name). I know what she really says so who does she think shes kidding?Ž My parents separated two years ago and are so caught up in attacking each other they dont realize how much they upset me. I get it that they each have their gripes. Mom could be so bossy and loud she never gave my father a minute of peace. I know she was tough to get along with but that obviously didnt make it right for my father to have an affair. It was so embarrassing to have the whole neighborhood talking about our family. My parents have faults, but I love them both. Sometimes it feels like they each want me to hate the other.Ž I meet so many parents who worry that their divorce will cause serious emotion-al damage to their children. What they dont always consider is that their own behavior and attitudes can be as impor-tant a factor in the eventual emotional adjustment of their children as the actual family break-up. If you are going through a divorce, its very painful to accept that the person you once shared your hopes and dreams with may now become a legal adversary. It takes tremendous maturity to show good judgment and restraint when you may be feeling very vulnerable. After a terrible hurt, it often helps to vent and let off steam. Spending time with trusted friends and relatives often makes a huge differ-ence and may be a safeguard to resist the temptation of confiding inappropriately to your children. When children are in close proximity, its so easy to use them as a sounding board, including them in conversations you may later regret. When people believe theyve been terribly wronged by a spouse, they may be inclined to win their childrens loyalty by exposing the others churlish behavior. And of course, there may be that wicked hope they can build themselves up by shooting down the very person who has caused so much pain. This is a hollow victory, however, which often backfires, with the children becoming quite resentful. Understand-ably, there is often tremendous pressure when a young person feels he is being asked to choose between parents. A parent is a parent, and children usu-ally have an investment in maintaining this important relationship (unless they have been given very strong reasons against this). They usually recognize that parents have faults and, on their own, try very hard to make sense of why a parent would have behaved so poorly. And, even if they dont choose sides, they may worry that they are somehow letting both parents down. Its important to note that so many young people understand the world by placing themselves in the center of the universe. They tend to pro-cess events around them by the way their lives are impacted. To them, family problems reflect negatively on all of them, so they may be highly embarrassed when people outside the family are privy to the sordid details. Par-ents face the daunting task of being sensi-tive to the specialized needs of children at each stage of development. Teenagers, especially, are acutely sensitive to public opinion and will take their parents dis-closures very much to heart. Children of all ages often blame themselves for many of the occurrences, and may feel a deep sense of shame for things that are obvi-ously not in their control. Unfortunately, they might feel guilty that somehow they could have prevented a parent from leav-ing. They may blame a bitter parent, believing the parents negative behavior may have stood in the way of a possible reconciliation. Young people are often confused by the unfolding drama, especially because they may be given half-truths and contradic-tory information. This puts them in the position of having to size up the situation on their own and they dont always get it right. Sometimes they become frightened because theyve blown things out of pro-portion and imagined all kind of negative scenarios that may never happen (i.e. I may never see my dad again, or we may end up living in a homeless shelter.) Maintaining the childrens previous structure and routines may add a sense of security and normalcy for everyone, even if the parent feels shaky and out of control (and may be fantasizing the very same things). Parents can head off many conflicts by spending as much individual-ized time as they can with each child, to assure them of their concern, and to give them an opportunity to ask questions and voice their worries.Our children did not ask to be part of the mess the adults often make around them. Parents who take the high road are taking important steps to help their chil-dren adjust to very frightening and often tumultuous circumstances. As importantly, the individuals who hold their heads high by maintaining a digni-fied, considerate demeanor are the ones who pave the way for their own eventual sense of confidence and wellbeing.

Take the high road, for your children and yourselfWith the summer in full swing, the pace of work has gratefully slowed, allowing more time to catch up on the thinking, reflecting and planning that are prologue to many of the activities pending for the Community Foundation in the coming months. This summer ritual is taken to heart more broadly by those engaged in charitable giving around the state, too. The Florida Philanthropic Network, a member-ship organization of grant-makers, takes advantage of the seasonal lull and for the second year, it has convened leadership conversationsŽ around the state. These collegial discussions are an opportunity to gather region by region to discuss some of the key questions bubbling up for grant-makers about how the business, policy and practice of charitable giving is being transformed by present day circumstances. Given the infrequency with which grant-makers hit the p ause b utton, this opportunity to levitate and soar above the day-to-day is a touchstone to sustaining per-spective around the broader themes that connect philanthropy. It is an opportunity to listen to and learn from peers and col-leagues deeply engaged in philanthropy in local communities other than our own. Those who attend represent an important slice of the layers that make up the foundation universe in Florida. Participants include donors, CEOs, board members, pro-gram officers, development directors, communications staff „ seasoned volunteers and professionals all „ but you will also find present young men and women, all new to the sector, with fresh ideas and faces. These gatherings are inclusive of the diversity within family, private, cor-porate and community foundations. With the challenges still fresh in our memories from months now passed, and with our gaze fixed upon the horizon in the not-so-distant future, grant-makers seek affirma-tion of whats working and are sensitive to the need for course correction, given that the expanse of uncertainties is unprec-edented. Most would agree that these days, having a compass that points to true north is a rare find. Access to and conversations with the hearts and heads that share com-mon vision, values and purpose is a strong suit to hold against, what seems, at times, a stacked deck against success in a troubled world. The forums were well attended. The Community Foundation hosted a forum in West Palm Beach. It was attended by some of our regions leading grant-makers. This has been a tough year for any grant-maker intent on scoring some mod-est victories, measured not by the dollars that went out the door but by the results of positive change the dollars were invested to support. There is much agreement in the observation that everyone is doing more with less. Of necessity, the charitable sector is becoming more sharply focused „ and whatever sharply focusedŽ means in the circumstance of individual funders is going to require innovative thinking, with tough choices as a side. Leaders in philanthropy have a lot on their minds. It is not an uncommon experi-ence for grant-makers to have been shaken by a quiet spasm of disbelief that what is happening to the American dream, is hap-pening right here in the midst of shocking abundance. The recession continues to pound the most vulnerable within our society. The disintegration of the social safety net seems inevitable as the down-sizing of government is in an unrestrained freefall, with no end in sight. Grant-makers are hearing choruses of lament from health clinics, social services agencies, home-less shelters, employment agencies, food pantries and soup kitchens. Those many voices contain stark revelations about the human toll being exacted as the Great Recession runs its course. Whether by objective or by default, this rearranging of the economy and its consequence to the quality of community for many is disastrous. So its no wonder that the FPN forums have tapped into a collective con-cern across the state on how philanthropy can and should respond. There is some consensus emerging that the full measure of philanthropic leader-ship will, in the future, be determined by the extent to which foundations individu-ally and together leverage all the assets available to them in order to succeed in making change in this new environment. This means tapping tools and taking on roles that go beyond grant making. No one doubts, in this view, that charitable giving is needed or less important, only that the use of grant making as a singular tool is largely insufficient in the context of pres-ent day challenges. We always suspected as much. Now we have proof of concept. Q „ The views expressed in this article are those of Ms. Lilly alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Community Foundation. „ As one of Floridas largest community foundations, the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties advances quality of life, citizen engagement, and regional vitality through its promotion of philanthropy. It has been in existence for more than 35 years, with total assets of more than $130 million. Last year, the Foundation awarded more $3.4 million in grants and led initiatives to address critical issues of common concern among our regions communities, including hunger, homelessness, affordable housing, and the conservation and protection of water resources.

PLUS receive $10 off your “ rst two weekly visitsSummer in Florida means time at the beach. Reading, swimming in the ocean and exercising are great reasons to hit the beach. Getting a little color to com-pliment a new summer outfit is not. But tanning and skin cancer aside, there are several skin-related mishaps that can make your day at the beach anything but a day at the beach. „ Scenario 1: After a refreshing dip in the ocean, upon leaving the water you develop a strange, prickling sensation under your bathing suit. This is followed in a few hours by the onset of itchy, red welts under the areas covered by your bathing suit, which typically resolves within a few days.„ Diagnosis: Seabathers Eruption aka sealice. The cause is exposure to the larvae of the thimble jellyfish. The lar-vae are most prevalent in Florida waters between March and August, peaking in late May. When swimming, they can become trapped beneath the swimsuit. Upon leaving the water, the nematocysts (harpoon-like organelle on the jellyfish larvae) fire into the skin, causing the stinging sensation. If you experience symptoms, remove your swimsuit and towel off your skin. If diluted vinegar is available, apply it to your skin prior to showering to neutral-ize any additional toxin. If a rash occurs, mild cases can be treated with over-the counter oral antihistamines (Benadryl) and hydrocortisone 1% cream applied 2-3 times a day. More severe cases may require a trip to your dermatologists office for prescription strength corticosteroids creams. Swimsuits should be thoroughly washed in fresh water and detergent and dried prior to reuse to prevent recur-rence. Avoidance is possible only by staying out of the ocean when sealiceŽ warnings are posted. Wearing smaller swimsuits can help by reducing the sur-face area of larvae to be trapped, but if you choose that option, just be sure to cover up the extra exposed skin with a good sunblock. „ Scenario 2: While swimming, you feel a sharp, stinging sensation on your arm.„ Diagnosis: Jellyfish sting. What to do? Get out of the water immediately, as some jellyfish stings can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure, nausea, vomiting and shock. Once on shore, apply vinegar to the site to neutralize the jellyfish toxin (Palm Beach Ocean Rescue lifeguards keep vinegar at their stations). Do not rinse with fresh water as this will cause more stinging. Do not try to remove the tentacles with your hands. Instead, scrape off the tentacles with the edge of a credit card or drivers license. If symp-toms such as lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting occur, proceed at once to the nearest emergency room. „ Scenario 3: Youre enjoying a barefoot stroll along the beach when you feel a sharp pain on the bottom of your foot.„ Diagnosis: Laceration (cut) due to a broken shell. Treatment: Hold pres-sure on the wound until any bleeding has stopped. Next, wash the area with soap and fresh water to remove any sand, dirt or remaining debris. Do not rinse the wound in salt water as it could increase the risk of infection. Use a clean When the jellyfish stings, and the sealice larvae bite BY DR. SHAUNA KRANENDONK, M.D._______________________________Special to Florida Weeklytweezers to remove any visible foreign object. If the laceration is deep, seek medical attention at the nearest emer-gency room as stitches may be required. Otherwise, apply diluted betadine to the site, followed by a layer of antibiotic ointment such as bacitracin and cover with a bandage. If the wound is a deep puncture, be sure youve had a tetanus shot (to prevent lockjaw) within the last 10 years. Most US citizens have received a series of 3 vaccines as a child. If the object which punctured is particularly dirty, a tetanus booster may be needed if it has been more than 5 years since the last tetanus shot. „ Scenario 4: You forget to reapply your broad-spectrum sunblock (SPF 30 or higher) and two hours later, you feel a hot, tender sensation on your chest.„ Diagnosis: Sunburn. Treatment: Get out of the sun immediately. Effects from sunburn generally peak 12-24 hours later. Severe cases with widespread blister-ing, severe pain, headache, confusion, or flu-like symptoms should be treated in an emergency room. Mild cases can be treated at home. A pain reliever, such as ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin should be started early to reduce both pain and inflammation. Cool compresses with equal parts milk and water, or Burows solution (available in drug stores) applied with a soft clean cloth, can be applied for 15 minutes every 2-4 hours. This can be followed by application of hydrocorti-sone 1% cream and/or aloe based gels (also available in drug stores). Q COURTESY PHOTO Jellyfish washed up on Daytona Beach.

If you arent able to follow through with medications, your pet will likely be back at the vet. Do you dread walking out of your veterinarians office with pills? Here are some strategies to make the pill-popping easier:„ Pop and treat. Have your veterinarian demonstrate. Always start with a positive attitude and end with a treat and praise.

How does the cat know, and how is he able to disappear as if by another talented magician? Your dog is only marginally easier, maybe. Not quite as fussy as your cat, hell eat the pill if its hidden in something yummy, or so you think. But later you find the pill on the kitchen floor, and you realize he was somehow able to extri-cate the yummy stuff from the medicine and hide the pill in his jowls for spitting out later.

In 1961, Time named him one of the nations five best columnists. He has written more than 15,000 daily columns as well as magazine stories and books. He co-wrote Hank Aarons auto-biography, and landed the only interview given by Shoeless Joe Jackson about the 1919 Black Sox scandal. But what I find most compelling about Mr. Bisher is his habit of ending his columns with a single word: Selah. Selah is a Hebrew word that is difficult to translate. It is seen as a directive in the Psalms, indicating the need to silence reading voices in order to allow the increased volume of a musi-cal interlude, perhaps the blare of trumpets or the clash of cym-bals. In this context, the word means a pause. But some say that it means forever. Or to hang: Like the hanging on a scale in order to measure. A measured response requires pause, listening, reflec-tion. Selah.... See me listen: There is a squinting of the muscles around the left eye. The head tilts for-ward and left and down. There is a tension in the body. On a mission, this listening is a mea-sure to identify. What is that? Shhhh....The sound of note is pulled out of a matrix, wings pinned down. Appro-priate dissection programs are applied. A pogrom of surround is instituted, driving to non-distraction. Then: identification, conquest, and finally, boredom. To my minds ear comes the archaic English meaning of to list.Ž To list,Ž like this, comes from an Old English root (lystan) meaning lust, desire, craving. If this list is endless, the end is listless. The archaic to listŽ has another Old English root: hlystan. The meaning here is to hear. Perhaps this would be more like an osmotic process. The word osmoseŽ comes from a concatenation of the French root meaning inward and the Greek for push and thrust. The word osmosis can refer to the diffusion of fluid through a semi-permeable membrane from a solu-tion with a low solute concentration to a solution with a higher solute concentra-tion until there is an equal concentration of fluid on both sides of the membrane. Or it can mean the gradual, often uncon-scious process of absorption. Ah, to list, perchance to osmose? Theres the rubbing: what is heard and hearer. Rubbing away the membrane between, the hear-ing here is vibrant, entered without exit, inoperable, inex-orable. Like a chest cavity beyond heart, inner air being outer music, tympanic meme brained, swimming in pool without borders or bottom, without surface, unfathom-able. Were not in Kansas anymore. Or Georgia. We have lost the score card and the soap opera stories of idolized players, projected self projects. We are out of the projects into the high life.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 A18 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________A Palm Beach Gardens couple, Jeff and Julie Looney, have invented a handleŽ which affixes to e-readers like the Kindle, and are now manufacturing it and selling it through their own web-site and through They sold more than 200 in the first few weeks it has been on the market, according to a press release. They took an idea from concept to reality in less than a year and are now selling it from an office in the garage of their BallenIsles home. The Kindle e-reader is a bestselling product on and receives five-star reviews. The Looneys wanted to solve the one problem they saw with the e-reader „ that it can be difficult to hold on to. They created ezegrip.’It sells for $14.95 on and on the company website at Its an ergonomic-designed hinged handle made of soft, flexible silicone which attaches to and lays flat against the back of the Kindle, under which the user slips his or her hand. According to the web site, With the patent pending ezegrip’ you will no longer have to worry about your hands and forearm getting fatigued or accidentally dropping your device. ezegrip’ is made from soft silicone, is only 4x6 inches in size and works with all Kindle products including the DX. It fits perfectly on all iPads and is ultra-thin so that you should be able to use your existing sleeve or holder. Also works great on all Barnes & Noble Nooks, Sony Edition series, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Velocity Cruz models, Sharp Galapagos, Blackberry Playbook, Pan-digital Novel, Kobo and iRiver. As new and updated readers and tablets are released we will validate that ezegrip’ works with them as well. Check out the Compatibility page on our site for other devices.Ž The Looneys came up with the product out of the frustration Julie Looney experienced while using her Kindle, the press statement says. When not work-ing at her job as finance director at Earl Stewart Toyota of North Palm Beach, she likes to relax on the beach or pool-side with her Kindle e-reader. But she found herself struggling to steady it in the brisk breezes of South Florida. And her hand and forearm became fatigued when she held her Kindle for any length of time. Then, as she dozed off while reading her Kindle one week-end, it slipped from her hand and fell to the patio floor. It wasnt damaged, but it got her husband, Jeff Looney, thinking there had to be a better and easier way to hold the device. He sought to develop a product that would allow the Kindle user to maintain a steady grip while keeping the muscles of the hand and forearm relaxed and not accidentally dropping the device or pushing the butt ons on the side. He wanted to find a way to let the user wearŽ the Kindle. After countless discussions, sketches, patent searches, brainstorming sessions and prototypes, the Looneys came up with the final design. The ezegrip’ is available in black and white. Plans call for the introduc-tion of additional colors to match the customers device, style or personality, according to the company statement. Q Getting a gripConstruction of piers and boat docks are under way along the Intracoastal Waterway and Frenchmans Harbor Channel is expected to be complete in the fall, according to a statement by Toll Brothers, developer of the community. Frenchmans Harbor will have boat slips along piers and docks that will accommo-date boats up to 70 feet. There will also be a community park with a dock and gazebo for picnics and social gatherings. Frenchmans Harbor will offer singlefamily homes and carriage homes „ all offering direct Intracoastal Waterway access or access via a community chan-nel. Residents of the community will be minutes from the Atlantic Ocean by boat or by car. Construction will begin soon on the designer-decorated model homes. Homes from the Admirals Collection will be built on oversized 100-foot-wide home sites and homes from the Harbour Collection will be situated on 70-foot-wide home sites. Both collections showcase oneand two-story homes with attention to detail and an extensive list of lavish appoint-ments. The low-maintenance Carriage Collection at Frenchmans Harbor will offer equally impressive detailing in luxurious single-level living. Frenchmans Harbor has a gated entrance, a commu-nity swimming pool and luscious green space. Toll Brothers homes at French-mans Harbor are priced from the mid-$600,000s to more than $3 million. Frenchmans Harbor is located on the Intracoastal Waterway in North Palm Beach on Ellison Wilson and Donald Ross roads. The community is minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach. Frenchmans Harbor is near upscale shopping, fine dining and rec-reational entertainment. The Frenchmans Harbor sales team is currently located at Toll Brothers nearby community of Frenchmans Reserve. To visit the Frenchmans Reserve sales center from Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike, exit at PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and head east. Travel to the Alternate A1A ramp and head north to the French-mans Reserve entrance on the right. The sales center, located at 703 Cote Azur Drive, is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more information see or call 799-5660. Q Frenchman’s Harbor piers, docks should be complete in the fall Scripps researchers find way to stop MS in miceGardens couple develops a handle for e-readers Scripps Florida investigators have found a way to stop multiple sclero-sis in mice. Dr. Tom Burris, a professor in the Department of Molecular Therapeu-tics, led the team that developed a compound that stops MS by shutting down a type of white blood cell called TH17. This cell malfunctions in patients with MS and other autoim-mune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. When scientists blocked TH17 signals in mice cells, the symptoms of MS disappeared. It was unclear whether the treatment is a cure or simply stalls the disease, according to Dr. Burris. If the new treatment works in humans, it would have a couple of advantages over existing MS drugs. It could be taken as a pill rather than injected, and the compound would attack only TH17 cells, sparing other disease-killing cells. In these autoimmune diseases, the body is tricked into attacking itself,Ž Dr. Burris said. Right now, the treatments that are out there suppress the entire immune system, and that comes with a lot of side effects.Ž The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation estimates that 400,000 Americans have MS, which prevents nerve cells in the brain and spine from commu-nicating. It is most commonly diag-nosed in women between the ages of 20 and 40. The new treatment is so promising that it is gar-nering inter-est from drug companies. We have a lot of inter-est from biotech and pharma companies, and were trying to strike a deal with someone,Ž Dr. Burris said. He said Scripps Florida, located in Jupiter, could license the treatment to one of those companies within a few months.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 BUSINESS A19 Visit us online at You should know ...FLORIDA WEEKLYS SPOTLIGHT ON LOCAL REAL ESTATE BUSINESS PROFESSIONALSNAME: Scott Agran AGE: 48 CURRENTLY: President, Lang Realty SPECIALTY: Luxury Residential Realty … Palm Beach County and Treasure CoastHOMETOWN: Waterford, Connecticut RESIDENCY NOW: Boca Raton, Florida BACKGROUND: I worked in a real estate business in Connecticut with John Ellis. John was a well-known and well-respected figure in the community and a former Major League Baseball player with the Yankees, Indians and Rangers. Our focus was to buy apartment buildings and turn them into condominiums. My first break came in the late 1980s when I partnered with Bill Isaacson who ran Lang Management in Boca Raton with only three agents. Lang has seen substantial growth from a three-agent operation striving to be noticed among a competitive field of regional and national players to becoming the a top player in South Florida in terms of units, sales and listings. FAMILY: Two sons, ages 11 and 18. ACTIVITIES: I enjoy golf, tennis, skiing and basketball. BEST THING ABOUT THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY: On a daily basis, I interact with a wide array of people both nationally and internationally. This is a 100% people business. TOUGHEST PART OF THE JOB: You could be doing everything right but market conditions can change results. ADVICE FOR A NEW AGENT: It is all about the clients. You need to WOW them with exceptional service each and everyday. MY JOB WOULD BE EASIER IF: My job would be easier if I delegated more. I like to be hands on with everything. A QUOTE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS: Its not the business you take on, it is the business you keep.Ž Bill Isaacson, my business partner at Lang Realty.If you would like to be featured in You Should Know, or would like to suggest someone for this column, please email Maureen Dzikowski at Scott Agran MONEY & INVESTINGUnemployment numbers are downright scaryGreece was in the center stage for the past several weeks. But after passage of the famed Greek austerity planŽ all eyes turned back to the U.S. The world was looking for better reports on the question-able American recovery and congressional resolution of the impending debt ceiling crisis. A nasty surprise was delivered on July 8, when terrible employment numbers for June were reported and the two prior months numbers were down. As of this writing, talks for a large ($4 trillion) U.S. debt reduction package were curtailed and a smaller debt reduction package is now on the table. This column has dealt with employment numerous times in the past, not just to emphasize the severity of the problem but to elucidate that, without U.S. GDP growth at 2.5 percent or greater, unemployment can simply not get better. The laws of demographics dictate that with a growing labor force, there has to be meaningful GDP growth to employ new entrants as well as to get the existing unemployed into a job. The employment numbers reported last week were downright scary, absolutely and especially in the context of forecasted estimates. A well-respected forecaster had estimated jobs to come in at 170,000, the consensus estimate was closer to a positive 120,000, and the actual number reported was a meager 18,000 jobs created in June. A closer look shows that the private sector created 57,000 jobs while govern-ment jobs contracted by 39,000. The net was 18,000. Its no surprise that local and state governments, which do not have the capacity to deficit spend, are cutting staff. And it will be no surprise if this trend continues. Beyond the hardships for the folks who are not working, there are hardships for those who work, pay taxes and feel dis-couraged that the $800 billion stimulus package accomplished little. It was largely spent to create jobs and to save industries so that jobs would remain intact. Presi-dent Barack Obama says 2 million jobs were created since stimulus; some say 3 million. And that would price the cost of creating a single job (stimulus dollars divided by jobs created) in the $266,666-$400,000 range. But if even only $400 billion of the total stimulus went toward job creation, then the cost of creating a single job was $133,333 to $200,000. That was the cost of creating a job that probably pays $30,000 or less. Where did the money come from to create a low-paying job at such high a cost? Because the U.S. is deficit spending, U.S. federal debt was incurred to finance this employment. And since the U.S. is not paying off debt any time soon, the real cost includes the future costs associated with the interest on the debt. Now that is mind boggling „ creating a low-paying job at a cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars plus future interest. The old recession-recovery con-cept was to lower interest rates to stimulate the economy and for the government to spend „ all of which creates a multiplier effect, as in one job created creates addi-tional spending and additional investment spending, etc. But this time around, these economic tools were pushing on a string. Why didnt the government stimulus give us the bang we need to create traction in the labor market? The first reason is that interest rates are so low that lowering from very lowŽ to unbelievably lowŽ is not incentive; it does not change percep-tion of wealth or inclination to spend. And secondly, numerous studies suggest the multiplier effect of government spend-ing becomes marginal when the govern-ment is already seriously in debt. There is negative impact by deficit spending and it largely negates the positive of the expenditure. Was the stimulus package a complete waste? Maybe the package was really spent to save the U.S. banks and, in doing so, save the world from a great depression. That is more palatable. Fast forward to the U.S. debt ceiling talks. From my perspective, cutting gov-ernment payments or raising taxes may very well both need to be done, but both will negatively impact U.S. growth, which is already anemic. It could be that the unemployment numbers could get worse in months ahead. Talk with your adviser and review your portfolio. These are very uncertain times and it certainly wont hurt to know how your portfolio might fare under a variety of economic scenarios.

PAGE 19 FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 Sometimes fakeŽ is fine in the world of collectors. There are examples of fauxŽ marble made from plain white marble with a skillfully painted marble-like pattern. Inexpensive woods were grain-painted. Jewelry was made with foil-backed glass that resembled diamonds. All of these fakesŽ can be valuable today. One of the most interesting uses of substitute materi-als dates from the late-19th century. Asian ideas influenced designers then, and bam-boo furniture became popular. But bam-boo is soft and flexible, and is not strong enough for large, heavy pieces. So some American makers began to make faux bam-boo from birds-eye maple. Bedroom sets that included beds, dressers, small side tables and washstands looked like bamboo but actually were maple. A top-quality fur-niture company, R.J. Horner of New York, sold many of these sets to upper-class New York City families. This well-made furni-ture is a bargain today, lower in price than it was five years ago.Q: Is it true that psychedelic posters from 1960s concerts now sell for hundreds of dollars? I was a music fan back then, and went to Jimi Hendrix, Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Grate-ful Dead concerts, but I must have thrown away the posters I liberatedŽ from tele-phone poles.A: There have been a few museum exhibits of 1960s and early-70s psyche-delic posters that show that the style was a new art form that influenced the art that followed. Many of the posters included specially designed type styles that had strangely shaped letters of different sizes made to fill the space around the other designs. Some were done with fluorescent paint so that they glowed under a black-light. The posters are scarce today because most eventually were discarded. Search your mothers attic. You may find some of your posters, and even in poor condition they sell for hundreds of dollars or more. Q: Please tell me what my pink Sea SpriteŽ and blue Wood NymphŽ Royal Doulton figurines are worth. I remember buying them at a duty-free shop in the Caribbean 40 or 50 years ago. The first one, marked HN 2191,Ž is 7 inches tall, and the second, HN 2192,Ž is a little taller.A: Your two Royal Doulton figurines were in production from 1958 to 1962, so they are indeed 50 years old, or close to it. They were designed by Margaret PeggyŽ Davies (1920-1989) and were part of the companys Teen-agersŽ series. Every Royal Doulton figurine in the huge Harry NixonŽ series, introduced in 1913, was given an HN number. Nixon (1886-195 5) was in charge of the figure-painting department at Royal Doultons factory in Burslem, Staffordshire, England. Each of your figurines, if in perfect condition, would sell for $100 to $300 today. Q: I inherited a violin thats labeled as a copy of a Stradivarius made in 1721. Is it worth anything?A: Antonio Stradivari (1644-1737) made vio-lins, violas, cellos, guitars and harps in his shop in Cremona, Italy. After he died, his sons continued in the business. FakeŽ Stradivarius violins have been made in many coun-tries since the mid-1800s. Instruments meant for export to the United States had to be marked with the country of ori-gin after 1891. Begin-ning in 1957, the words copy ofŽ were added to labels on some of these violins. Today, some manufacturers make violins using modern techniques that repli-cate Stradivaris work and sell for high prices. But most StradivariusŽ violins are poor imita-tions and dont sell for much. Prices depend on quality, and range from $50 to $500. Q: I have an old Schoenhut toy piano with a matching bench. The piano bench is well made, but Im wondering if it came with the piano or if it was homemade. Can you tell me if a Schoenhut toy piano origi-nally was sold with a matching bench?A: Albert Schoenhut (1848-1912) founded his toy company in Philadelphia in 1872. His first product was a toy piano with metal sounding bars and other features found in When faux is better than the real thingKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terry KOVEL O full-size pianos. Keys were fullsize, too, although the keyboard was, of course, much shorter. Eventually Schoenhut toy pia-nos were made in more than 40 different sizes and styles. The larger ones were sold with piano benches or adjustable stools, but the benches and stools also could be purchased separately. Schoenhut toy pianos were perennial bestsellers for more than 100 years. The company has changed ownership several times, but its still in business, and it still makes toy pianos.

Love is patient and kind. It does not envy and is not proud. Love protects, trusts and perseveres. At least thats what the wedding planner favorite „ 1 Corin-thians „ tells us. But love is also fiercely jealous. That one rarely makes the ceremony. On a recent weekend afternoon, the Captain surprised me with a romantic treat: couples massages. Theyre a favor-ite of relationship advice books whose authors say massages are a great way to grow closer, to relax together and to experience new levels of intimacy. I wasnt thinking about any of those things as we sat in matching terry cloth robes in the spas pre-massage area. I was wor-rying if my boyfriends masseuse would be hot. I took a sip of green tea and tugged at the sleeve of my robe. I hope shes a wreck,Ž I said before I could stop the words from falling out of my mouth. The Captain laughed. I requested a woman for you,Ž he said. Really?ŽHe nodded. I dont like the idea of another mans hands on you.Ž I smiled. At least I wasnt the only one struggling.Couples massage: Here’s the rub SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSON O “I was worrying if my boyfriend’s masseuse would be hot....”Two women came into the room to fetch us. They were non-threatening, dressed all in black with their hair pulled back in tight ponytails. We followed them into a room with dim lighting and two massage tables set side by side. Here you go,Ž one of the women said. Well step out of the room so you can remove your robes.Ž We were strangely tentative, suddenly shy in each others presence. We dis-robed and slipped furtively under the sheets covering the tables. The mas-seuses knocked. Come in,Ž the Captain said.The women moved to our separate tables. I closed my eyes. The masseuse draped an eye pillow across my brow, shutting me in darkness. Often when one sense is limited our other sens-es heighten, so that as I became sightless my hearing cranked up. I lay on the table and listened to the massage session across the room, where the Captain received a rub down from a woman who was decidedly not me. While I had feared some buxom blond „ a Swede with a pen-chant for naughtiness, per-haps „ it turns out that any woman would have been a threat. I was not troubled by her specifically, but the idea of another per-son exploring my boyfriends intimate parts. Whats worse, I had to listen to the sound of skin on skin, a profoundly private and sensual noise not meant to be overheard. When the hour-long session drew to a close, I was relieved to rise off the table and slip back into my bathrobe. After changing, the Captain and I made our way to the parking lot, where I slipped my hand in his. I was newly aware of his desirability, suddenly alert to the precari-ousness of any relationship. I cant imagine thats what experts expect when they suggest couples go for a massage together. The experience was anything but relaxing. Yet it served as a great reminder: that what we have is pre-cious and worth guarding jealously. Even from massage therapists.

Joe Raineri FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 PUZZLE ANSWERS At some point in any working adults life, the boss is bound to be annoying. Or do something unfair, incompetent, lazy or downright stu-pid. The point is weve all been there, and the makers of Horrible BossesŽ know this as they tap into our col-lective resentment for higher ups to make a bawdy, outrageous and downright hilarious comedy. You decide who has it worse: Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) works at a chemi-cal company for a cokehead lunatic (Colin Farrell) who hates him and doesnt care about poisoning people with toxic waste; Nick (Jason Bate-man) works for a passive-aggressive, psychotic manipulator (Kevin Spac-ey) who makes Nick work 12-hour days and hints at a promotion he never intends to give; and Dale (Charlie Day) is a dental assistant for Julia (Jennifer Aniston), who sexu-ally harasses him every chance she gets. Quitting is not an option for any of them, as the recession has made finding another job unlikely. So on the strength of a few-toomany drinks and some dubious advice from an ex-con (Jamie Foxx) whose name is not fit for print, the guys devise a plan to kill their employers. It would be immoral not to kill them,Ž Kurt says to Nick and Dale about their horrible bosses. Indeed. Those familiar with this premise going in will no doubt be skeptical about why any guy in his right mind would deny Ms. Anistons advances, but darn if Mr. Day doesnt pull it off. His Dale is engaged, for starters, but Mr. Day also convincingly shows us how uncomfortable the unwanted advances make him, to the point where we feel sorry for him in the same way that we feel for the other guys. As for Ms. Aniston, she looks great as usual but also says and does some naughty, foul and disgusting things that allow her to break out of RachelŽ mode and make us laugh. Good for her. But shes not the only boss having fun. Mr. Farrell plays the most odious and peculiar person you can imag-ine, but even his character looks half-way decent when compared to the guy Mr. Spacey plays, a downright mean-spirited, nasty individual who is convinced his wife (Julie Bowen) is cheating on him. All three villainous bosses are completely over the top, and played perfectly because of it. The rest of director Seth Gordons movie is hilarious as well, largely because the chemistry amongst Mr. Bateman, Mr. Sudeikis and Mr. Day is so strong. Their easy banter leaves no doubt these characters have been friends for a long time; note the tim-ing as they easily takes shots at one anothers weaknesses and quirks, such as Dales arrest record „ this is genuine, authentic guy talk, only (I daresay) funnier. Horrible BossesŽ is a rarity in that the story holds together and just about every joke, quip, one-liner and physical gag works. The buzz isnt huge for this, but its going to be the surprise hit of the summer. Q „ Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 14-20, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A31 (Note: This review was first published on March 17.)Carmine is at it again.Carmine Giardini, owner of the eponymous Carmines Gourmet Market and Trattoria on PGA Boulevard, and C.G. Burgers, has opened another restaurant. Umi offers flat breads, but at its heart, the restaurant is decidedly Asian. Inside, the space is dark, perhaps in a nod to its past life as Noche nightclub. To the left is a sushi bar. To the east, a bar with windows offering views of the mari-na and Intracoastal beyond fills thee wall. Televisions line the walls in slightly distracting profusion. There also is outdoor seating and an outdoor bar. Back inside, a giant copper dome surrounds the much talked about robata grill. That robata grill cooks meats and vegetables over a hardwood charcoal fire, and imparts a slightly smoky taste and aroma to the food. The menu really is two menus. The first is a list of snacks, flat breads, robata grill items, small and large plates and regular daily specials. The second menu is a fairly extensive list of sushi items. Chef John Belleme, formerly of Henrys in Delray Beach and Zemi in Boca Raton, is known for his small plates-type fare, and thats where he shines. The menu at Umi (thats Japanese for ocean) is designed to come in waves of food, hence the small plates and the sushi menu. Order a few small plates to share, then a few more, if need be, until youre satisfied. For happy hour, Umi offers half-price drinks and has a special menu. The Asahi beer ($2.50 at happy hour) was crisp and cold and made a perfect accompaniment to the robata-grilled skirt steak ($7).). The skirt steak, from the restaurants list of small plates,Ž offered two gen-erous skewers of beef cooked medium over the grill. The beef had a nice char from the grill, and there was a wonderful interplay of flavors between the miso and the dried chili in which the meat had been dressed. The beef, how-ever, was slightly tough, even for skirt steak. It was topped with a large onion ring and served atop a bed of sauted onions that made it near-ly large enough to serve as a main dish. Also an interesting starter: the bacon-wrapped dates ($10). The half-dozen bites on this plate almost were too sweet. They were stuffed with almonds and man-chego cheese. The savory bacon countered some of the sweetness of the dates, but we could barely taste the cheese in some of them. We had reservations for 8:45 p.m. on a Saturday on another visit and arrived to find the only tables available were high-tops near the sushi bar. We opted to have cocktails at the bar and wait for a table. The hostess seated us in a booth near the bar about 15 minutes later. Our server brought us a plate of flat breads and such to nibble while we con-templated the menu. One could easily make a meal from the small plates at Umi, and that is where we began. An order of the pork buns ($11) was pan-Asian delight, with bits of shredded Duroc pork belly. We loved the interplay of the sweet hoisin and spicy sriracha sauces. The Vietnamese-inspired happy pancake ($11), with its bits of shrimp and roasted chicken, also brought smiles to our faces. It was served with a slightly sweet nuac chom sauce that paired nicely with the shrimp and chicken. We tried a third plate, the Tuna Tataki ($12), from the sushi menu. The fish was fresh and sweet, and tasted of the sea. It was served with scallions, sesame seeds and a ponzu sauce. We saw diners at a nearby table dining on the Buffalo tuna ($12), which has a stunning presentation and was greeted with all the oohs and ahs it deserved. Umi has an extensive sake menu, but wine seemed the best complement to our main courses. We ordered a bottle of the Ferrari-Carano sauvignon blanc, well priced at $29. It was crisp and assertive and held its own alongside some heavy fare. Moving on to dinner, chicken under the brick ($19) was comfort fare-plus. The half-chicken (the menu says its Bell & Evans) was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, with garlic crushed potatoes and sauted spinach and esca-role. The potatoes had a wonderful gar-licky flavor that didnt overpower the chicken. Umi also has regular specials.This Saturday special was the Thaiinspired Maine lobster curry ($29). The flavor of the lobster was rich and sweet, but we found part of the meat to be slight-ly overcooked and chewy. And that red curry sauce could have used more spice. It was served with perfectly cooked cau-liflower and raisins. Service throughout the meal was brisk and friendly. Diners frequently can see Mr. Giardini strolling around his restau-rants, and he was at Umi that Saturday night. He wisely has overstaffed the place so no glass goes untended and no plate goes uncleared. It is refreshing to see an owner take such a passionate, active interest in his restaurant. Its as though Mr. Giardini caught the perfect wave at Umi.

But just how do you look back at a festival at 21? Its a joy and it all comes back to one thing „ the audiences keep coming back,Ž Mr. Christman says. Last year we did Macbeth to celebrate the 20th. And we just broke all records with audiences.Ž His concern this year?If I could only control the weather.ŽBut isnt The TempestŽ about a sorcerer who does just that? Kevin is Prospero, so maybe he can conjure something up,Ž Mr. Christman laughs. Thats Kevin, as in Crawford, who will direct and star in this years production. He has worked with Mr. Christman for more than 20 years now, and he sees his role as coming full circle with The Tempest,Ž which marks the 400th anni-versary of its premiere. When Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival first presented The TempestŽ 20 years ago, Mr. Crawford portrayed the young prince, Ferdinand. Why not Prospero? I was far too young and inexperienced at that time. I was still playing the young prince roles at that point,Ž he says. And Prospero is a role into which an actor has to grow. This ones been interesting. Ive played this part twice before,Ž he says. And I probably, at least on paper, was a little young to play a role like that. This is the first time I feel like Im old enough „ physically, psychologically for this part.Ž But at 41, isnt Mr. Crawford still a little young for the role? A lot of people think this is Shakespeares farewell to the stage, but he was only 47 when he wrote this play. The concept of Prospero as an old man is a romantic notion of the early 19th centu-ry,Ž he says. I never liked the Prosperos I grew up with looking like St. Nick.Ž Mr. Crawford, a founding member of the Shakespeare festival, has been direct-ing close to 20 years. Within 2 to 2 years Kermit started passing along some directorial duties to me,Ž he says. I would get it ready then he would bring it together with his mag-nificent producers eye and clean it up.Ž By year four or five he had taken on a directors role, he says. So what can audiences expect this year?There is no such thing as a Shakespearean style,Ž Mr. Crawford says. The Tempest just has a wild history.Ž That means a fairly stripped-down set and contemporary dress, he says. Were not building a cave on stage. Were not building rocks and stalag-mites,Ž he says. And there is a historic precedent for that, he says. It probably was performed indoors first, but they certainly presented it at the Globe as well and that certainly was a bare stage.Ž Mr. Crawford says he told his designer he wanted the production to look like a dress rehearsal of a modern company performing the show. Theres so much in the play about presenting things and using the imagina-tion,Ž he says. Youll actually hear the stage manager shouting out some cues.Ž The company has been gearing up for technical rehearsals at Carlin Parks Seabreeze Amphitheater, which was designed with the festival in mind. We got most of the set, which is kind of like a big Lego. We built it in (Daniel Gordons) shop and take it apart like a giant Tinker set.Ž The set is fairly basic, but festivalgoers will recognize the names of some of his cast. Theres a great level of comfort in that,Ž he says. Take actress Krys Parker, for example.Sometimes we dont have to talk, apart from saying make sure youre here for that lines end, we dont have to com-municate. She probably knows every blade of grass in that park at this point.Ž And what about directing yourself?If I have 15 people to direct and Im one of them, then I only have 14 to worry about,Ž he says. Mr. Crawford, who now lives in Georgia and is a professor of English and theater at Reinhardt College, says the Shakespeare festival is his sole acting gig. I spend the academic year there and between May 15-June 1, I drive down and spend the summer down here,Ž he says. I never thought it would work out this way.Ž After all, theater is not something he wants to do every day. I love being in the theater and get it out of my system,Ž he says. Im usually the only one on the last night whos not crying.Ž Q SHAKESPEAREFrom page 23 GIARDINIBELLEME >> "The Tempest" Presented by the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival, July 14-17 and July 21-24, Seabreeze Amphitheater, Carlin Park, State Road A1A and Indiantown Road, Jupiter.
