ITS THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER. So, why not throw that pup a bone?Or better yet, give that pup a home?That applies to cats, too.The areas shelters are overflowing with animals that need homes. They say they need your time, your money and your commitment to helping them help the helpless. In this ailing economy, its the animals that are hit hard. People are running scared right now,Ž says Kay-Lynette Roca, founder of Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary and Hospital in Jupiter. People are stressed out. Theyre over-whelmed and they dont know whats going on with the economy. Animals are the first to suffer. We get calls from landlords where people have left animals in apartments with no food or water.Ž That means there are more animals on the street, more that are in need and fewer resources to care for them. The biggest problem were seeing right now is that were the only no-kill in town and were bleeding to death,Ž says Ms. Roca.

For the past eight years, the Palm Beach Gardens Police have hosted a free party for fami-lies that showcases their equipment and resources. Last year, they expanded the event by collaborating with the Recreation and Parks Divisions summer camp. Parks and Rec had the end of summer event, and we had National Night Out where there were a lot of issues we wanted to address,Ž said Stephen Stepp, chief of police. We thought, Well we both have events around the same time, why dont we come together? Ž Thats exactly what they did, and plan on doing again at the Burns Road Recre-ation Center from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Outside, the Police Department displays their equipment, then you come inside and there will be childrens games and music,Ž said Ann Schilling, resource manager of the Recreation and Parks Division. Its a good way to get out and have fun with your neighbors.Ž For the past 28 years, National Night Out has been an opportunity for citizens to learn about preventing crime in their neighborhoods. Gardens Night Out devi-ates from the NNO custom of neighbor-hood block parties. Each neighborhood would have a party and we would caravan into their neighborhood, put on a show for 45 minutes, then go to the next neighbor-hood and put on another show,Ž said Chief Stepp of the traditional National Night Out. The problem is, we have 50 different neighborhoods in Palm Beach Gardens.Ž So they decided to deviate from the beaten path, and created Gardens Night Out. Our population has skyrocketed and our crime has declined so we must be doing something right,Ž Chief Stepp said. Other communities hosting National Night Out events include Jupiter, Juno Beach, North Palm Beach and Palm Beach.

Whence springs this strange affinity is not entirely clear, but I believe it owes to an early view-ing of Elmer Gantry,Ž the superb screen adaptation of Sinclair Lewiss novel about a charismatic tent preacher. Over time, I have built a small list of favored performers, always topped by Ernest Angley. If youve never caught Mr. Angleys act, youve missed a sublime plea-sure. Just the astounding sight of the man is worth the investment of time. It is hard to summon a proper description, but hes always reminded me of something you might discover discarded in a Dumpster behind Madame Tussauds. Many years back, this interest in men (thumping the Bible seems to be a very masculine line of work) who purport to heal and save led me to an impulsive act, which, in turn, led to a memorable encounter. Heres the story:I was lounging in bed in a Miami hotel room, channel surfing, when there appeared on the television set a presence so mesmer-izing and compelling that I was brought up short. It was Herman Stalvey, who, accord-ing to the information on the screen, pas-tored at the First Church of the Last Chance in Vero Beach. Brother Herman Stalvey was Elmer Gantry incarnate. Without thinking, I reached for the bedside telephone and called the donation line. I asked to speak with Brother Stalvey, and, after several minutes of jousting with the minion on the other end, the man himself took the phone. I was honest. I said I had seen him for the first time that morning and wanted to attend a service. Sure, he said, everybodys welcomed at the First Church of the Last Chance. Then I said I wanted to meet with him personally. Brother Stalvey, to my sur-prise, agreed. Keen with anticipation, I arrived early for services the next Sunday. The church held roughly 250 to 300 people, I estimated, and filled almost at once. When Brother Stalvey appeared, there was a collective gasp. He wore a jump suit the color of a Concord grape. Embroidered upon it were gold, sequined treble clefs. It was as if the clothes designers for Elvis, Liberace and Evel Knievel had shared a joint and then collectively sketched an outfit. Long sideburns framed Brother Stalveys narrow face, and his 1950s-style pompadour glistened under what appeared to be a liber-al application of a kissing cousin of 10w 40.He immediately launched into a beautiful rendition of the Cristy Lane classic One Day at a Time.Ž What a voice! The eve-ning proceeded apace with an appropriate number of healings, confessions, bouts of weeping, fainting spells and spontaneous outbreaks of people speaking in tongues. When it was over, I made my way to Broth-er Stalvey, introduced myself and asked if we could talk. He gave me the once-over twice, obviously taking my measure. Well have breakfast, Brother!Ž he said.The next morning at Dennys I was relieved to find that Brother Stalvey had arrived in more conventional dress. The place was packed. Brother Stalvey told me a bit about himself. He was from rural Georgia. He had traveled the road of the transgressor. Drank, chased women. About what you would expect. And for years, like Gantry, he had preached from a tent. Would you like to hear about the miracles?Ž he asked. At this I perked up and so did diners around us. Brother Stalvey had not mas-tered his inside voice.Ž He told me that he had been in an accident and lost an arm. But God reattached it, praise Jesus!ŽThen he told me about the time he died. He was headed toward the light (Brother, that light is brighter than anything you can imagine; brighter than anything youll find in a disco!Ž) when he heard Gods voice. Go back! Its not your time!ŽPeople gawked, but I was long past embarrassment. Besides, who were they to judge? After we worked through a few lesser miracles and discussed some minor prob-lems he was having with the IRS, Brother Stalvey shared his dream. If I could just get Burt Reynolds to come to the church! Think about it! Burt Reynolds and me! Together! If only he knew what it would mean, Im sure he would come.ŽI pointed out that Mr. Reynolds had a place down the coast in Jupiter „ perhaps he would come, if Brother Stalvey just asked.Oh, Ive tried,Ž he said. Called and called. Dozens of times.Ž And?ŽHe doesnt take or return my calls.ŽSadness engulfed the man sitting across from me, and that made me sad. Perhaps this is why I am a person of little faith, for if God could reattach Brother Stalveys arm, surely He could move Burt Reynolds to pick up the telephone. I did not share this thought with Brother Stalvey, saying instead that I needed to be on my way. Outside, we shook hands. When I attempted to withdraw, Brother Stalvey kept a tight grip. Pray with me, Brother,Ž he said as he sank to one knee, taking me down with him. Brother Stalvey began to pray. Then he prayed some more. And then he prayed just a little more. I cannot recall what he said, exactly, but I do know Burt Reynoldss name came up at least once. After the amenŽ was rendered, we stood and shook hands again. I bade Brother Stalvey farewell, and he made his way to a vehicle that looked as if it had seen the worst of it at the Battle of Jericho. As he drove from Dennys, diners at adjacent tables began to file out. Who the hell was that guy?Ž a man with a New York accent asked. Some sort of nut job?Ž His name is Brother Herman Stalvey,Ž I replied. Hes a famous preacher.Ž The New Yorker gave one of those bigcity shrugs, hitched his pants and moved on. Good riddance. Two things resulted from this encounter. I have never placed another call to an evan-gelist. And I cannot stand the sight of Burt Reynolds.

BIG, which stands for Busi-ness Ideas Group, was founded in 1981 by local business leaders. Today, many of the founding companies are provid-ing goods and services in the area and participating in BIG. The members of BIG unanimously selected the lighthouse and museum to be the focus of their community effort. Thousands of lighthouse visitors each year contribute to the local economy. Dr Joel Hersch, BIG president said, Affili-ating ourselves with JILM is a demon-strable gesture of our strong commit-ment to the residents and visitors of this community.Ž The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is funded through member-ships, admissions, gift shop sales, grants and private donations. To safeguard this important landmark, BIG members are putting their personal and professional energies into volunteering and fund-raising campaigns. To initiate the relationship between BIG and the JILM, BIG members contributed $1,000 and pur-chased a commemorative brick on the Pathway to History at the Lighthouse. BIG members will be visiting local busi-nesses in the coming months asking them for active participation by display-ing a coin-box brochure stand inviting loose change for donations. BIG is also working with the JILM Board of Direc-tors on the Shine On Jupiter Light Music and Food Fest scheduled on Nov 19. Jamie Stuve, Jupiter lighthouse and museum president and CEO, said in a prepared statement, We are excited to develop this important partnership with such community-minded business leaders. One of the goals of our organiza-tion is to provide a world-class heritage destination that generates a sustaining economic engine for the area. Support from the members of BIG is a wonderful step towards that future.Ž BIG members meet weekly to exchange information, professional contacts and quality referrals. See BIGJupiter.org for additional information. Businesses seek-ing information regarding how they can participate should contact Susie Orchard, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum Vol-unteer … Business Relations, at 762-6411 or ahelpfulneighbor@gmail.com. For more information on the lighthouse see jupiterlighthouse.org. Q Business group chooses Jupiter Lighthouse as partnerSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, reports that her office is providing a new text messaging tool for office wait times for driver licenses and state identification cards. Its simple. Anyone with a mobile device, can text waitpbc to 41411,Ž said Ms. Gannon in a prepared statement. A text message will be sent show-ing approximate wait minutes and the number of people currently in line for driver license services.Ž The 2010 Legislature transferred the job of issuing Real ID driver licenses from the DMV to local tax collectors. This dramatically increased traffic in service centers because the federal Real ID Act requires that everyone come in person to prove identity. Our service centers are located in small offices that were not designed to handle heavy traffic flow that resulted from tak-ing on driver license services,Ž Ms. Gannon said. We are harnessing the power of technology to put new tools directly in the customers hands.Ž Ms. Gannon has implemented several tools to help clients navigate lines and wait times. The lines and wait times increase during the season „ November through April. People can schedule appointments for driver license services up to three months in advance and view wait times for high volume services at www.taxcollector-pbc.com. Ms. Gannons employees also triage the line during peak times so people without required documents do not wait needlessly. And a mobile receptionist can issue Q-flow tickets to clients standing on line, which allows them to circumvent the line. The mobile receptionist can also process simple motor vehicle transactions such as license plate surrender or renewals and handicapped parking permits. There is no charge for the text messaging service, but a carriers standard messaging rates may apply. Q You can text to get wait times for driver’s license

This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. maria MARINO O mmarino@floridaweekly.com In last weeks article I shared with you my experience at Trump National in Briar Cliff, N.Y. Its similarity in feel and beau-ty to Trump International in West Palm Beach made me wonder: What makes a golf course memorable? Many golf courses have a signature hole like the 13th at Trump National or the 17th hole at Trump International with its cas-cading waterfall, witnessed by many during the recently televised LPGA Tournament. An amazing display of earth moving and imagination, these holes transport you to the tropical rain forests of Hawaii or South America.Some courses have a group of holes so memorable they are given a name. At the Champion Course at PGA National holes 15, 16 and 17 make up the famous Bear Trap. At Augusta, the home of the Masters, Amen Corner starts at hole 11 and ends on hole 13. Amen Corner is easily the most memorable and discussed group of holes in all of golf and conjures up visions of past Masters Tournaments, won and lost. The newly renovated Palm Beach Par 3 has 18 memorable holes, many of which have views of the Intracoastal Waterway or the Atlantic Ocean. Dont think for one minute that this is an easy course. Although you are not carrying a driver in your golf bag when you play this course, there may Signature holes make courses memorablebe times when the wind is blowing so hard that you wish you did. Why is the 17th hole at the Village Course of Jonathans Landing (commonly called the in-town course) memorable? A Fazio-designed golf course that winds its way through residential communities and waterways, this par 5 uses a ferryboat to cross a salt-water channel, ferrying two golf carts to their approach shots to the green. As many times as I have played this hole, I never tire of riding the ferry. Home to a past LPGA Tournament, Ibis has three golf courses, but the par 3, 13th hole on the Legend Course is a perfect example of why you should know the rules of golf. Ranging in yardage from 82 to 166, this hole can play two clubs longer when the wind is in your face. The reason I bring up the rules is that this green is considered a direct hazard and if you hit the ball in the water, short of the green, you will need to re-tee the ball and hit over the water again with your penalty shot. However, if you were lucky enough to go in the water on the back side of the green, your relief would be right next to the green where the ball crossed the margin of the hazard and you would not need to go over the water again. The par 3, 6th hole at Old Palm Golf Club is considered its signature hole. Partially surrounded by water and with a backdrop of mounds and bunkers, this hole includes six different tee shot opportunities ranging from 103 yards to 170 yards. Like everything else in Old Palm, the landscape is enhanced by the bright colors of the flowers and vegetation. The signature hole at the Bears Club is the par 4, 5th hole, but the hole I always remember best is the par 5, 18th hole. As you stand on the balcony of the Tuscan styled club-house designed by Peacock and Lewis, and magnificently decorated with the help of Bar-bara Nicklaus, you are able to watch drama unfold as players try to land their approach shots on the green, much surrounded by water. A risk/reward hole for the longer hitters, I have witnessed eagles, birdies, pars, bogeys and the dreaded showman (for all of you non-golfers, that would be a score of 8). I know what all of you are doing now. You are going over in your mind those holes that remind you of a match, won or lost, with your pals. You may be remem-bering the par 3, 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass that has destroyed the hopes of many tour players looking for a win and a two-year exemption on the PGA tour. Some may remember Tom Watsons famous chip in on the par 3 17th hole to win the 1982 US Open at Pebble Beach, besting Jack Nicklaus. Playing from the long grass GOLF that slopes away from a slick green, Watson did the impossible and holed a sand wedge. How many of you can still see Watson danc-ing around the green pointing to his caddy, the late Bruce Edwards? Pointing because Edwards told Watson to get it close, and Watson responded Im not going to get it close, Im gonna make it.Ž 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.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 Everything that comes in the door has either been hit by a car or abused or neglected.Ž Case in point: Two puppies found in a Riviera Beach Dumpster. When Safe Harbor got them, they were dehydrated, but more to the point, they had been discarded, thrown away like the garbage they are not. We take in the misfits. We take in the animals that nobody else wants,Ž Ms. Roca says. Were the ones who take the dogs who are missing a limb or an eye. Or the big dogs „ theyre the ones that are becoming obsolete. Were the only ones who take pit bulls.Ž And cats and rabbits and horses.We took a 4,200-square-foot house and turned it into a cattery,Ž Ms. Roca says of a house Safe Harbor has in Palm City, near Stuart. We painted and sewed and had no budget and did some incred-ible stuff with this house.Ž Cats roam freely throughout the house. There are runs along the ceilings for them to get up high and feel safe. But there also are horses, goats, ducks and chickens. There are all kinds of critters out here,Ž Ms. Roca says. And heres the catch: A philanthropist gave Safe Harbor the money to buy the sanctuary, but we dont have the money to do anything with it,Ž she says. And to top it all off, donations have fallen. Were starving to death,Ž Ms. Roca says. People dont want to hear that my employees have not gotten a check in the last month.Ž Blame that on the economy.I started Safe Harbor over 26 years ago and its never really been that bad,Ž she says. The recession is killing us.Ž Times have been rough, agrees Inga Hanley, of Adopt A Cat in Lake Park. She says there are about 185 cats in the groups shelter on Old Dixie Highway, and more than 100 being fostered at homes throughout the county. It gets worse every year,Ž she says of the problem with abandoned pets. Im trying to apply for a couple of grants.Ž The felines brought in to Adopt A Cat are street cats, and shelter is full. There are cats perched on kitty condos. There are beds and hidey-holes with cat heads and cat rumps poking out. Cats roam the floor and greet visitors, a surprise given that so many of these are feral felines. A volunteer processes a mother cat and two kittens someone has brought in. The couple bringing them in already had found homes for the cats other two kittens. This cat and her kittens will be isolated from the rest of the population until its clear they have no communicable diseases. Then the kittens, both female, and mom will be spayed, receive vacci-nations and be microchipped. And thats where things get to be expensive. I have cats where people call me and say its been hit by a car. I have to pay for itŽ to be treated, says Ms. Hanley, who charges an adoption fee of $85. And then people say $85? It would cost $400 to do the spay, the neuter, the microchip.Ž She is hoping to reduce some of the costs. I have been fighting with the county to provide free spay/neuter,Ž she says. The cats that they bring in are from the outside and they just dont stand a chance.Ž And the shelters do not stand a chance unless donations increase, say their orga-nizers. We need money, plain and simple. We need money,Ž says Safe Harbors Ms. Roca. And we need volunteers.Ž Volunteers are high on Ms. Hanleys wish list, too. I need people who are willing to come to the shelter for four hours so I could keep the shelter open,Ž she says. I need to keep the shelter open for people to see the kitties.Ž She is grateful for the volunteers she has. We probably have a good 20 but they all have their jobs,Ž she says. And most of my volunteers work.Ž Volunteers are great, but when it comes to shelters staying open, its all about the bottom line. Both charities have thrift stores to bring in money, as does the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach. Safe Harbor also hosts its Celebrity Dog Wash each spring and Adopt A Cat will hold its Spacatti Dinner in October. The thrift shop is principal source of fund-raising,Ž says Ms. Hanley. We also do a raffle, and we get in maybe $10,000 from that. Other fundraisers are $1,500, maybe a thousand dollars. And donations are down. I just feel like, oh, my God, I dont know how much longer we can go on.Ž Behold the echoing air.The average donation has dropped by 70 percent,Ž says Ms. Roca. We just did a big appeal letter that went out. Were see-ing $10 and $20 checks coming through the mail where we used to see $250.Ž Q ADOPTFrom page 1 Adopt A Cat>> 1125 Old Dixie Highway, Lake Park; 8484911.

Thanks GISFW!Ž … Mary Beth Bigley Age 50 2nd grade teacher BY GINA SPADAFORI_______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyOpen your heart to a special-needs ask people to think about what theyre looking for. A quiet companion? A playful kitty? Are there children in the house? Other pets? The shelter staff usually knows the animals, and can help you choose one to meet your expectations.Ž Behavior problems can be more difficult to predict than medical ones, since some cats react so badly to losing their homes that they shut down emotionally. Brown said shelters have tried to help cats maintain their true personalities by trading small cages for large rooms where cats share space, or by increasing the number of volunteer foster homes so cats dont have to stay in the shel-ter while waiting for a new home. She also notes that the behavior problem that pushes many to give up on a cat „ house-soiling „ is in many cases cured by the change of scenery. We often find the problem so specific to the cats previous environment that the problem doesnt shift from one home to the next,Ž she said. Ms. Brown and Dr. Khuly agree that knowing what youre getting into is the key to a successful adoption, whether youre dealing with the craziness of a kitten, the normal readjustment period of a newly adopted adult cat or the special needs of an animal with chronic health problems or behavior issues. You need a working relationship with your veterinarian,Ž said Dr. Khuly, who stresses this is even more true when con-sidering a special-needs cat. In the end, of course, the decisions are yours. But when you open your heart to a hard-luck kitty, you may find that the one who benefits most from the relationship is not the cat... but you. Q Listen to your head or follow your heart? When it comes to choosing a cat, its possible to do both, as long as you know what youre getting into. For many, a kitten is the only choice: A healthy feline baby is nearly irresistible, and the choic-es are many during kitten sea-son,Ž which is at its height now. But feline experts say that for many people, saving a cat oth-ers pass on „ an older cat, or one with special needs „ can be intensely satisfying on a personal level, and that benefit is one that should not be discounted. This is all about what you get for the giving, and sometimes when you choose the cat whos being overlooked, what you get is a really deep bond with that animal,Ž said Bonney Brown, director of the Reno-based Nevada Humane Society. Many have cared for a cat for a lifetime after what started as an impulse decision to save that pet.Ž Veterinarians know the appeal of special-needs pets „ often because they adopt such animals themselves. A lot of us have this desire to nurture,Ž said Miami veterinarian Dr. Patricia Khuly, a popular blogger and frequent contributor to pet-related publications. I know there are plenty of veterinarians who advise not to take on a sick pet, but we veterinar-ians are often the worst at taking our own advice.Ž Dr. Khuly herself has adopted more than a few sick pets, but she also said its essen-tial to approach choosing any pet with open eyes and a sense of whats involved „ emotionally, practically and financially. The place to start is with a clear-eyed evaluation of a pets health and behavior. An initial read on the health of a cat or kitten isnt difficult, said Khuly. Eyes clear and bright, devoid of crustiness or secretions. Nostrils clean, nice pink gums, a clean, full coat and ears free of debris. Breathing should be easy and not labored,Ž she said, adding that a kitten should also be able to walk and eat on his own, follow a finger and show interest in his surround-ings. Nevada Humanes Ms. Brown said asking shelter staff or rescue volunteers for advice can help narrow the choices. We PET TALES Feline groovy Adopting a cat who’s older or has special needs can be a deeply satisfying experience.

Jupiter Medical Center ranked No. 9 of 69 hospitals in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale Metro Area in U.S. News & World Reports 2011-12 Best Hospitals rankings. Hard numbers stand behind the rankings in most specialties „ death rates, patient safety, procedure volume and other objec-tive data. Responses to a national survey, in which physicians were asked to name hospitals they consider best in their specialty for the toughest cases, also were factored in. The rankings cover 16 medical specialties and all 94 metro areas that have at least 500,000 residents and at least one hospital that performed well enough to be ranked. In addition to the overall ranking, Jupiter Medical Center was recognized as high performingŽ in five specialty areas, includ-ing cancer, ear, nose and throat, gynecol-ogy, kidney disorders and neurology and neurosurgery. Among Jupiter Medical Center staff physicians, 59 were ranked as top doctors by U.S. News, who teamed up with Castle Connolly, a New York City-based com-pany that has been working for nearly two decades to identify the nations top doctors.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 Ladies, they say we cant expect to have it both ways. For the longest time, so many of us have bitterly complained (or seethed in silence), convinced that the men in our lives get away with murder. We may have truly believed that men turn a blind eye as we juggle the demands of work, children and housework, with nary a concern that we may be overwhelmed and exhausted. So many working women have been convinced that they leave their paid workday to assume what researcher Arlie Hoch-schildŽ has called the second shift to take on the lions share of the responsibilities at home. While they may acknowledge that the men in their lives face enormous pressures at the workplace, especially in these challenging times, there has been a widespread assumption that even men who attempt to be helpful in the home, are largely let off the hook. Not so, according to a recent Time Magazine cover story by Ruth Konigsberg, entitled The Chore Wars.Ž Konigsberg, a working mother, expected to bolster her own belief that the two sexes carry drasti-cally different, unequal workloads. Like the rest of us, she was quite surprised when the research simply did not back up her original premise. In fact, the data released by the U.S. bureau of Labor Statistics concluded the following: In 2010, men and women who were married, childless and working full time (defined as more than 35 hours a week) had combined daily totals of paid and unpaid work (duties at home) that were almost exactly the same. For those who had children under the age of 18, women employed full time did just twenty minutes more of combined paid and unpaid work than men did, the smallest difference ever reported. And although the report concluded that men were not clocking as many hours helping at home, comparatively women were not clocking as many hours at the office. Konigsberg further reported that working fathers were the ones who were expe-riencing the most pressure as they tried to manage work responsibilities, in addition to carrying their fair share at home. There-fore: the widespread belief that working mothers have it worse „ a belief that engenders an enormous amount of conflict between spouses „ is simply not the open-and-shut case it once was. Now, I predict a resounding chorus of dispute! Most of the women I know will shout, The studies are wrong! My partner doesnt do his share!Ž Well, it certainly may seem that way, but could there be some merit to the study? Ladies, please dont be angry that Ive brought these findings to the table. And men, please dont use this data as ammu-nition to retaliate or prove a point! Lets be clear that these statistics do nothing to address the very real frustrations of both sexes. Nor, do these studies make recommenda-tions that could help to ease the burdens. So where is the disconnect? Traditionally, our soci-ety has delineated specific gender roles that the sexes have been struggling vigorously to change. Despite substantive shifts brought about by feminism, many women still consider themselves to be the CEOs of the domes-tic domain.Ž Men are most often the pri-mary wage earners, and by necessity and/or choice have focused on their careers, and have not been able to participate fully in the childcare and housework. I dont doubt for a moment the contention that men today are carrying a pretty hefty load. Most of the fathers I meet seri-ously assume the importance of their par-enting responsibilities and understand the significant role they play in the emotional development of their children. However, in these skittish times, many dads (especially, the primary breadwin-ners) are feeling unparalleled pressures and insecurities at work. They often worry that employers and colleagues will penal-ize them if they dont put in long hours. They often lament that no matter how hard they try to help out and please their wives, it never seems enough! It would be a tremendous relief for them if they believed that their partners understood their pressures and cut them some slack.Concurrently, so many women feel that the weight falls on their shoul-ders 24/7 to make sure that their childrens lives and the household run efficiently. It feels to them like theyre the ones who have to drop everything when a babysit-ter cancels or the refrigerator goes on the fritz. So, they dont feel like their workday ever ends, or that they are ever able to truly relax. Even while theyre in the middle of their so-called down timeŽ (out to lunch with their friends or having a manicure), their brains are often working over-time, mentally calculating the weekly schedule, or whether they have to stop at Publix to pick up lettuce for tonights salad. They are envious of their husbands ability to enjoy down time (working out or watching a sports game), seemingly without a care in the world. They are often frustrated because it doesnt seem as if he makes a genuine effort to be of help. And, it is human nature to notice what he isnt doing, not what he does.If both sides could only discard our scorecards, and sidestep the notion we are being pitted against each other, we might be able to take steps to soften the conflict. Trying to put ourselves in our partners shoes for a day, may give us an appreciation for the scope of their struggles. Giving each other clear feedback on how we can be of help contributes to the spirit of collaboration. And of course, supporting each other and acknowledging well-intended efforts is critically important. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, LCSW, ACSW is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

Men do as much at home as youAs the stain of the hacking scandal from across the pond spills like black ink across a white table cloth, you wonder where all this will ultimately end; and by the time you read this, maybe we will know. But as of this writing, the Prime Minister of Brit-ain, the highest officials in Scotland Yard, and of course, James and Rupert Murdoch together with the corporate leadership of the London papers, including Rebecca Brooks, have all suffered intense, inva-sive scrutiny to determine their role of responsibility. The searing condemnation and public shaming have ignited multiple resignations, criminal charges, and now, perhaps the dissolution of at least parts of the worlds most powerful media empire. The sensational revelations produced by exposure of intensely kept secrets or that yield a juicy bit by invading ones pri-vacy are temptation on stick. It is stunning to see how deep and broad the infection spread, described by a former editor of the News of the World, as a culture given over to and bent on destroying lives.Ž This approach to journalism was, in effect, management at the highest echelons trolling and throwing bloody chum that attracted hackers all too eager to feed in a frenzy of misdeeds. It is hard to imagine all those questionable payments of millions were not in an expense report somewhere that should have attracted the profound attention of management. The Mur-dochs deny any knowledge of wrongdoing. Famously, in a turn of events, they now protest that the buck surely stops some-where else. The issue of accountability also raises the question of where was Murdochs News Corporations own board of direc-tors? The boards job description is that of providing accountability and oversight of the News Corporations corporate busi-ness. These are the independent directors that bear financial responsibility to the shareholders in the company, the share-holders who must surely be grousing and nervous about the financial fallout and the decline in the value of shares as this drama plays out. Until recently there had been no public statement of regret by the board of the companys scandalous activities, no push for an external investigation to get to the bottom of the ethical and criminal violations, no call for the resignations of corporate managers who were at the helm of the newspapers from hell. Only recently has the board made its presence known by venturing perhaps it should have more of a hands-on approach given that the future of the Murdochs is now uncertain in the management of the business. Perhaps James Murdoch will be asked to step down as chair of the Corporations board. This reminds me of the buzz and incredulity that went around in philanthropy when Bernie Madoff went down and casu-alties of the Ponzi scheme followed like dominoes. A billion dollar foundation dis-appeared here and hundreds of nonprofits elsewhere lost their assets because they were all invested in Madoffs black box. Theres no pleasure in recalling the misery that collapse eventually spawned; but you had to wonder, where were the boards of directors? Governance is a critical issue in the nonprofit world. It might surprise you to learn there is a national certification program for Community Foundations that codifies a standard of excellence and ethi-cal practice. The certification ensures the operations and institutional behaviors of community foundations pass a rigorous sniffŽ test that gets very deep into how a community foundation does its business. This goes beyond the rule of state and federal law that is imposed on charitable organizations. The certification process requires full disclosure and documentary evidence of what the community founda-tion does, how it does it, and the meth-ods and procedures by which governance, operations and grant making are admin-istrated and accomplished, all of which is subject to intensive peer review. Only after successful completion of that process does a Community Foundation receive certification. The national standards are especially important when it comes to the issue of where the buck stops. There is no ambiguity around the role of governance and the responsibility of stewardship that is the job of the board of directors. A Community Foundation that has earned certification as having met the National Standards (as your Community Foundation has) is testament to how seri-ously the board takes its responsibilities to protect the community foundations most important assets: its reputation, integrity, transparency, accountability and demon-strated commitment to ethical policies and practices. No matter the sector, were these values more broadly shared, the headlines wed be reading today would be very different. Q (The views expressed in this article are the authors 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 total assets of more than $130 million.

WHY DO I HEARƒ BUT NOT UNDERSTAND? Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer Until recently, there was no practical way to identify dead regions of hearing cells in the ear. However, a new British-developed procedure using standard test equipment now allows for identi“ -cation of dead hearing cell regions. The study suggests that the presence or absence of dead regions may have serious implica-tions in the “ tting of hearing aids.This research reveals that amplifying dead cells is a mistake which will result in poorer speech understanding in noise. A new type of digital programmable microcircuit is now available using nanoScience technology that can be programmed to bypass the dead cells. As a result, the patients usable hearing cells receive ampli“ cation, thereby improving speech understanding in noise.We are employing a like method in our diagnostic sound booths using a sound “ eld speech in noise procedure,Ž said Dr. Mel Grant of Audiology & Speech Pathology. This test simulates hearing in a noisy crowd. We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency shaping this new hearing aid.ŽThe results have been phenomenal. For the “ rst time, a patient is able to actually realize the exact percentage of speech under-standing improvement in noisy listening environments. These new products come in all shell sizes, including the smallest digital models, with the prices starting as low as $750.

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.Jeannette Showalter, CFA & LICENSED COMMODITIES BROKER BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 A15 IT IS ROGER AMIDONS JOB TO GENERATE TOURISM IN PALM Beach County. And while he loves the beaches and the golf courses, dont expect the surf and the sand traps to be his sole focus. Weve done a really good job in the past of promoting beaches and golf. But now were honing in on cultural tourism, eco tourism, dining, shopping,Ž says Mr. Amidon, who marked his second anniversary as executive director of the Tourist Development Council in April.Roger AmidonFLORIDA WEEKLY’S EXECUTIVE PROFILE BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.com That means taking a hard look at what the area has to offer. What weve been able to do over the past two years has really been a target-ed focus on all the assets that we have in Palm Beach County,Ž he says. Mr. Amidon, who was general manager of the Palm Beach Gardens Mar-riott before taking over at the TDC, says he especially loves the countys parks. We have some tremendous parks in Palm Beach County, but in Jupiter, we have the Riverbend Park and Loxahatchee Bat-tlefield Park,Ž he says. Its a great place to see Florida as it was, he says. My wife and I took our bikes throughout that park for about two hours and saw quite a bit of wildlife,Ž Mr. Amidon says. From peacocks to black racers to eagles.Ž He is especially excited that the Florida Trail Association will host its annual meeting in Palm Beach County next March at Riverbend Park. He expects that meeting to attract upward of 500 people to northern Palm Beach County. Its just magical, he says.You can go in there after work with the sun setting down, and I really enjoy the serenity over there. Ive been telling people about Riverbend Park ever since I came into office.Ž The TDC also has shifted its focus on the Glades „ the area along the south-eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee that includes the cities of Pahokee, Belle Glade and South Bay. He has worked with Ashley Tripp, one of the owners of Slims Fish Camp on Belle Glades Torry Island, to gen-erate interest in the economically depressed area. We invited about 60 people on what we called a Love the Lake tour,Ž Mr. Amidon says. We thought maybe wed get 12 to 15 people to go and we had 53 people go on this trip.Ž While they were there, tourism officials introduced the hoteliers to the heart of the countys agribusiness, and the regions rich, black soil. They didnt know what muck was but they do now,Ž he says. That diversity highlights what Mr. Amidon says is best about Palm Beach County. You could go out there and see one of the most spectacular sunsets right here in our own backyard,Ž he says. If you want to see the sun rise on the Atlantic and see the sun set on Lake Okeechobee you can do it right here in Palm Beach County.Ž Q First job: Locker room attendant Q What Im reading: The Sun Also Rises,Ž Ernest Hemingway Q My personal philosophy: Lead by example and be nice to people. Q About the Tourist Development Council: TDC is governed by a ninemember board of directors. One mem-ber of the council is the chair of the Palm Beach county Commission or any other member of the commission as designated by the chair. The remaining eight council members are appointed by the county commission. The coun-cils mission is to lead the promotion of tourism in Palm Beach County by empowering collaborative partnerships, advocating appropriate destination defining developments and ensuring the steady growth of visitors. Q What led you to Florida? The desire to work in the hotel industry and to get out of the cold in New England. Q Best thing about my work: The interaction with my staff and the many tourism-related partners throughout Palm Beach County and seeing the positive results of collaboration. Q My personal mission for the council: To continue to have Palm Beach County marketed as the des-tination of choice so we can achieve continued results over our already 19 consecutive months of growth in hotel occupancy. Q Whats on the horizon: More jobs in hotels and restaurants. For every 85 new visitors, one tourism-related job is created. Q My top tech tool: iPhone Q I love: To spend time with my wife and kids traveling to new world destinations Q I hate: Pity parties Q Finally: Live life to the fullest and laugh a lot.

They exchange innuendo-laden texts, meet after work while his girlfriend is otherwise occu-pied, and then progress to her apart-ment for a quick roll in the hay. Susie likes to chase it all with a good dose of self-loathing. Its a rough way to live, romantically speaking, but shes chosen her drama. On my end, I know my part in the narrative: that of comfort-giver and advice-provider. I root for the relationship dur-ing the brief happy moments and lend a sympathetic ear during the rebound. Ive come to rely on my role as her friend in the way she relies on her men to be unavailable. So when she phoned to say shed met The narratives we write for ourselves SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com O “...I don’t understand why this keeps happening to me... Why do I always pick the wrong guys?...”someone new, I experienced a moment of rocking self-doubt. Hes so cute,Ž she gushed. Hes funny. And smart. He walked me to my car after work. He even suggested we have drinks later this week.Ž I forced a smile. Thats great news,Ž I said. Youll have to tell me how it goes.Ž I was, despite my best efforts, depressed. As much as I want Susie to be happy, I rebelled at the contented-ness in her voice. She had traded all the tragic vulnerability that defines her and was suddenly smug in her newfound romantic equilibrium. She sounded like she didnt need me at all. As she extolled her new beaus good qualities over the phone, I could feel the ground shift beneath our friend-ship. After years of repeating the same lines, Susie was finally erasing the parts of her narrative she didnt like. She rewrote the scenes to fit her new outlook, eliminating the sections about obsessing over unobtainable men and drafting a passage that focused on her fabulous new relationship. I wondered what part I would play in this new drama. I didnt have to wonder long. Susie called this week. Disaster,Ž she said.I held the phone close to my ear and sat down on the couch. I could tell this was going to be a long conversation. We had drinks,Ž she said.And?ŽHe has a girlfriend.ŽI let out the breath I had been holding. I dont understand why this keeps happening to me,Ž she said. Why do I always pick the wrong guys?Ž I nodded sympathetically, even though she couldnt see me, and settled back into the cushions. The rewrite had been a temporary affair, after all. We were back to the original script. I assumed my good listener pose and Susie took up her role as wounded romantic. She was a natural, as if shed been playing the part her entire life. Q

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 earths atmosphere. 2. “61 Hours” – This is the 14th book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. This time, Reacher is stuck in the town of Bolton, S.D. The story begins with him on a bus trapped in a snow bank. Hey, its South Dakota in the winter. To get any colder, youd have to go to North Dakota. (Warn-ing: the story ends with those three dreaded words: To be concluded.Ž But dont worry. The plot continues in Worth Dying For,Ž which came out in October.)3. “Fargo” – This 1996 Coen Brothers movie opens with nothing but snow „ so much snow, the entire screens a whiteout. Finally, after the credits, out of all the whiteness, a car pulling another car on a trailer shows up on the screen. This movie is filled with tire chains, fur-trimmed parkas, iced-over lakes „ and snow, snow, snow and more snow. You betcha!4. “March of the Penguins” – An Academy Award-winner that was shot in Antarctica, this French documen-tary follows the emperor penguins as they return to their ancestral breeding grounds. Ice floes. Frigid water. Snow-covered land. And penguins so ador-able, maybe youll temporarily forget to sweat.5. “Dogsong” – This 1985 young adult novel and Newberry Honor Winner by Gary Paulsen tells the story of a 14-year-old Eskimo boy, Russel Susskit, who takes a dog team and sets out on his own on a quest to find himself and rediscover his peoples old ways. Plenty of cold: ice floes, frozen tundra, snow.6. “Brian’s Winter” – Mr. Paulsen has written more than 175 young adult novels, typically man vs. nature tales or, in this case, boy vs. nature. In Brians Winter,Ž he tells the tale of a 13-year-old boy trapped in the Cana-dian wilderness, having to survive the icy winter by his wits. Mr. Paulsen has also written a number of books set in winter in the north, including several about the Iditarod dogsled race in Alaska.7. “Nanook of the North” – This groundbreaking 1922 silent documen-tary by Robert Flaherty captures the lives of an Inuk, Nanook, living in the Canadian Arctic. Called a cinematic milestone, Nanook of the NorthŽ is considered the first full-length documen-tary film. It shows the Inuk hunting walrus and building an igloo. Real life, real cold.8. “The Last Winter” – If the frozen landscape doesnt make you shiv-er, maybe the suspense will. It raised the hair on the back of my neck and gave me goosebumps. A 2006 movie star-ring Ron Perlman, its part thiller/part ghost story. The plot might not hold up that well, but theres plenty of ice and swirling snow and white landscape. And can there be anything colder than a corpse in the snow in the Arc-tic Circle?9. Books by Lucy Jane Bledsoe – Ms. Bledsoe has been to Antarctica three times and has written three books about it: How to Survive in AntarcticaŽ for children, The Ice Cave: A Womans Adventures from the Mojave to the Antarctic,Ž and a novel for adults, The Big Bang Symphony.Ž A CD-ROM scriptwriter for National Geo-graphic, Ms. Bled-soe has received two National Sci-ence Foundation artist and writers in Antarctica fellowships. 10. Martin Cruz Smith thriller novels – Mr. Smiths series of books about Detective-Inspector Arkady Renko includes some set in Russia and the Ukraine, Gorky ParkŽ and Wolves Eat DogsŽ among them.11. “Happy Feet” – Not exactly the animated version of March of the Penguins,Ž this 2006 movie won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. It tells the story of a tap-dancing penguin named Mumble. Snow, ice, icebergs „ and yes, a tap-dancing penguin.12. “Encounters at the End of the World” – This 2007 documentary by Werner Herog about Antarctica is somewhat mystical, quirky and oth-erworldly. Its also stunning in its icy beauty. The inhabitants of the South Pole are surprisingly poetic as they talk about their environment and why they wound up there. We get to hear what seals sound like as they swim under the ice, and see what life looks like underneath the frozen water. Its just an amazing film.13. “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Ward-robe” – In this 2005 film based on the famous C.S. Lewis childrens book, four British children find the land of Narnia at the back of their wardrobe. But the White Witch (played with an icy chill by Tilda Swinton) has cursed Narnia so its been winter for 100 years... and never Christmas. If all that snow doesnt make your temperature cool down, the White Witch will give you shivers. 14. “White Fang” and “The Call of the Wild” – These are perhaps two of Jack Londons best-known nov-els. The Call of the WildŽ fol-lows the story of a Saint Bernardshepherd dog named Buck, who winds up as a sled dog in the Alaskan wilderness and eventually joins a pack of wolves. White FangŽ is its mirror image: the story of a wild wolf-dog who becomes domes-ticated.15. “Dr. Zhivago” – Two friends named this as an ideal movie to watch during the dog days of sum-mer. Lots of snow,Ž one said. Lots of scenes of people standing around in the snow, wearing furs and talk-ing in the snow. And of course, that iconic sleigh ride scene that everyone knows.Ž Heres hoping these suggestions help you feel cooler. If not, you can always press a package of frozen veg-etables to the back of your neck... or chill your pillowcase before bed by sticking it in the freezer for 15 min-utes. Stay cool.

FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 Pawing it ForwardforSafe Harbor Saturday, August 66:30pm – 10:00pm New Y ork Bar & Grill 12189 US Highway 1North Palm Beach561-694-7878 Music • Dancing • Fun Raffles • Silent Auction • 50/50 ALL TO SAVE HOMELESS PETS! All proceeds to benefit Safe Harbor Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary & HospitalA Non-Pro“ t, 501(c) Organization safeharboranimalrescue.com Hosted by Terri Flowers Live Music by Kickback st arting at 7:00pm Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei star in Crazy, Stupid, Love.Ž It is unlikely you will find a better assemblage of talent anywhere. But wow, what a medi-ocre movie theyve made. The films flaws are both structural and in execution, so in a sense, everyone is to blame. Whenever you have a mix of comedy and drama, the comedy needs to be espe-cially funny because, obviously, it doesnt come as often as it normally would. That a decent portion of the comedy in this film misses, including a ridiculous graduation scene toward the end, is the biggest disap-pointment of all. Mr. Carell plays Cal, a sad-sack corporate schlump whose high-school sweet-heart wife Emily (Ms. Moore) wants a divorce. Something about sleeping with a co-worker (Mr. Bacon), she says. Ever the one to take things lying down, Cal retreats to moping, incessant rambling and feeling sorry for himself. For a middle-aged divor-cee whose only sexual partner is leaving him, this is expected.On the flip side, Cals 13-year-old son Robbie (Jonah Bobo) is infatuated with his babysitter Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), whos 17 and wants nothing to do with him. Never give up on true l ove, his father ironically tells him, which leads Robbie to a series of uncomfortable and unfunny scenes of stalking and emotional declarations.As for Cal, ladies-man Jacob (Mr. Gosling) takes pity on him (these two at the same bar is unlikely, but we have to go with it) and gives Cal a much-needed makeover. With this comes a renaissance for Cal, who knows not the dangers of picking up women (Ms. Tomei) in bars. Meanwhile, Jacob falls for Hannah (Ms. Stone), a law student whose boyfriend (Josh Groban) is a pompous ass.The idea behind directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requas film is to show love from three different generations, but the one with the kids is just silly, and Hannah is absent for almost the entire first half of the film. Although Dan Fogelmans script is admirably ambitious, the logistics of screen time require expedience over ambition. Of course, all would be forgiven if this was funnier, but the laughs are too incon-sistent. Mr. Carell makes the most of his material, Ms. Stone is solid but criminally underused, Ms. Tomei shines in limited time, Mr. Bacon and Ms. Moore arent given much comedy to play with, and Mr. Gosling steps away from drama and does quite well for himself. The stars are not the problem, but theyre also not saviors. Clearly, giving a full third of the film to two inexperienced actors (Mr. Bobo and Ms. Tipton) to pursue an irrelevant young loveŽ angle was a terrible decision. Worse, at no point do any of the love stories in Crazy, Stupid, LoveŽ really complement one another, so all the switching back and forth stunts the flow of the story. In short, crazy and stupid decisions were made in making this movie, all of which ensure that you will not love it. Q „ Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.Cowboys & Aliens + (Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde) In the Old West, a thief (Mr. Craig) and a cattle rancher (Mr. Ford) team up to stop aliens from kidnapping their townspeople and stealing their gold. Thats right: The aliens care about our gold. What a joyless, life-suffocating, cross-genre mess this is, and its boring beyond belief. Rated PG-13.The Smurfs ++ (Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, Sofia Vergara) Evil wizard Gargamel (Mr. Azaria) chases the tiny blue Smurfs from their enchanted village and all end up in New York City, where the Smurfs befriend a loving couple (Mr. Harris, Jayma Mays) about to have a baby. The animated Smurfs mesh nicely with the real world, but its all so cutesy that this one is strictly for kids. Rated PG.Captain America:The First Avenger ++ (Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones) Scrawny Steve Rogers (Mr. Evans) becomes super soldier Captain America during WWII and tries to stop a German commander named Red Skull (Mr. Weaving) from taking over the world. Its a dull origins story with lackluster action and languid plotting. Worse, it feels like a long prequel trailer for The Aveng-ers,Ž coming May 2012. Rated PG-13.

He has danced and acted in student productions at the Maltz for more than two years now, and performed in the theaters world premiere pro-duction last year of Academy.Ž He says the collaboration is part of his big thrill. Its seeing all of the ideas and seeing peoples eyes light up with the concept,Ž he says, adding that he frequently stays up past 1 a.m. answering emails about the production. Mr. Wood acknowledges that the bulk of a producers work is pre-rehearsal, and describes the job as the ability to turn 10,000 ideas into a show.Ž He says producing a show has been a dream of his. Producing is always something Ive wanted to do,Ž he says. You make all the mental notes, use all the ideas and put this into a show.Ž Says Ms. Thomas: Its what makes a show yours.Ž And that includes the publicity.That task falls to Meagan Dobson, 16.Its pretty overwhelming,Ž she acknowledges. Now Im talking to peo-ple from newspapers and radio. Im hav-ing a really good time. Im leaving with a smile on my face.Ž These young people hope to make the artist chair a tradition at the Maltz. Not only are we trying to get the word out about this project, but we want it to happen for years to come,Ž says Miss Dobson. And how do we engage people for years to come?Ž Miss Dobson, 16, lives in Lake Worth and attends Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington. She has taken dance lessons since she was 3, first with Brian Andrews, now an instructor at the Maltzs Conservatory of Performing Arts. And she performed as Jennyanydots in the recent student production of Cats.Ž She has relied on Facebook and Twitter to get the word out, knowing how younger generations rely on social media. She has hustled the production staff to interviews at public radio station WPBI and Jupiters Hometown Radio station WJTW, something that is com-plicated because some members of the team do not drive „ one young woman must take train north then get a ride to the theater. She has talked to newspapers and given the staff talking points. I took the press release and put into talking points,Ž Miss Dobson says. So far, it seems to have worked, at least for the creative team. It really has been fun,Ž says the director, Miss Johnson, who says she has done interviews for productions when she was younger. But these are on a whole other level.Ž Costume designer Cristina Caperna agrees. Ive worked with costuming before, but it was in school,Ž she says. Miss Caperna, 18, is home-schooled and lives in Jupiter Farms. She has been a regular performer in Maltz stu-dent productions, including Carmen in Fame.Ž But costuming the cast for The Good Times are Killing Me,Ž set in the heart of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, presented some challenges of its own. We first thought of it as the early 60s,Ž Miss Caperna says. Then we realized the characters favorite song was from the movie of The Sound of Music, so were going for the look of 1968.Ž So just what is that?Lots of yellows, Twiggy and the Beatles.Ž Her new role has left her in awe of the amount of work that goes into a production. You dont realize how much work is involved offstage,Ž she says. And its up to the stage manager to ensure that all thats done offstage meshes with whats onstage. Thats where Alexandra Welsh comes in. Its fun being like the boss of the show,Ž she says. Youre in charge and everything depends on you. If I miss a cue, this doesnt happen or that doesnt happen.Ž Miss Welsh, 17, also stage-manages productions at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts, where she will be a senior next year. You have to stay organized,Ž she says. Youre keeping track of everything that happens. Information changes in like five seconds. Thats the hardest part. Making sure everyone is informed.Ž She also has other roles in theater.I usually do properties and shop for all the props. Im just now taking set design and stage craft,Ž says Miss Welsh, who lives in West Palm Beach and plans to major in business but keep her hand in theater. If it sounds like the kids are all right, well, they are. This is such a wonderful opportunity for us to guide a group of students,Ž says Julie R owe, education director of the Maltzs Conservatory of Perform-ing Arts. How so?The play itself structurally is very interesting. I find the message to be very compelling,Ž she says, adding that it is a delight to sit with the Youth Art-ist Chair artists, drop a thought, then watch them discuss it. Its a group of young people coming together to tell a story from a young persons perspective,Ž Ms. Rowe says. Theyre here constantly talking to each other. Theyre thinking outside the box. I get inspired when my students get involved.Ž The process teaches life lessons, she says. Q They must stand up and have their v oices heard,Ž she says. And standing up for your viewpoint is an invaluable lesson.Ž Q SHOWFrom page 21 >> Auditions for “The Good Times are Killing Me” will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Aug. 6, by appoint-ment only, at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A31 As it has every other year for three decades, Bordeaux recently hosted Vin-expo, the worlds most extensive and well-attended wine and spirits trade fair. Showcasing products from 47 countries, the event attracted more than 48,000 visi-tors from 148 countries „ with French attendants making up the largest group and, for the first time, the Chinese del-egation the next most populous „ to see the best the world of wine and spirits has to offer. Although he isnt in the business of selling wines, Fort Myers resident and wine devotee Jerry Greenfield, who is considering becoming an importer, took part in the five-day event. It was a great opportunity to get a handle on the whole market and see whats hot in the marketplace,Ž he says about tasting wines and meeting and talking with producers from around the globe. Booths hosted by trade associations representing specific winegrowing regions afforded the opportunity to sam-ple a wide range of products. Mr. Green-field says he was especially impressed by ross, wines from Languedoc and malbecs, not from Argentina, but from Cahors, where malbec has been made for centuries.Ž The booth for the Cahors malbec producers showcased dozens of their wines from southwest France, and Mr. Green-field tasted about 20 of them.They were big and chewy, and will go great with grilled meats because they are definitely a rustic style of wine,Ž he says. The prices were good, mostly in the $20 to $35 range. Theyre definitely fuller bod-ied than their Argentinean counterparts.ŽAnother up-and-coming district likely to be exporting more to the United States is Frances Languedoc region stretching along the Mediterranean coast. Most of the traditional grapes of France are grown here, but some of the best wines made here contain grenache, syrah and mourvedre, due in part to the proximity of the Rhone district to the east. There were some very well-made wines, wonderful bargains, with prices in the $10 to $15 range, and made in a more elegant style than the malbecs,Ž Mr. Greenfield says. These wines are better matches with food, and very satis-fying to drink.Ž jim McCRACKEN vino@florida-weekly.com O Biennial Vinexpo provides a taste of what’s new in wine and spirits VINOCOURTESY PHOTO Jerry Greenfield with California winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt. dining NOTES O „ Eateries close in Gardens, CityPlace Two restaurants recently have closed. Zuccarellis has closed its Palm Beach Gardens location and Kona Grill has shuttered its location at City-Place. Zuccarellis, at PGA Commons, had indoor and outdoor seating, and served traditional Italian fare. It will continue to serve its menu of meat, seafood and pasta dishes at its West Palm Beach location, where a man who answered the phone said the restaurant had closed its Gardens location because of the rent. The restaurants other location is open at The Emporium Shoppes, 4595 Okeechobee Blvd. (at Military Trail), West Palm Beach; 686-7739. Kona Grill sent an email Aug. 1 to its e-blast subscribers announcing the closing of its Pacific rim-inspired restaurant, which faced Okeechobee Boulevard at CityPlace in West Palm Beach. No reason was given for the closing, and the email invited customers to visit the companys Tampa location. www.konagrill.com. Q Yet another promising trend is the emergence of ros wines from around the world. Everyone in the world is making ross,Ž says Mr. Greenfield. The wines from Tavel and Lirac showcased a wider range of styles and colors than ever before. Some we tasted were just the slightest shade of pink, and others were so rich and dark in color they looked like light-bodied pinot noir.Ž He believes these wines are gaining popularity as wine drinkers get to know them better. There have been a lot of changes in the last five years in the way wine drinkers view ross,Ž he says. Ross have gained respect because people are understand-ing this is not white zinfandel. They also appreciate how food friendly ros wines are. Winemaker Sasha Lichine, with his savvy marketing skills and money, has popularized ross today much like Rob-ert Mondavi did the fum blanc back in the 70s.Ž Winemakers are investing more effort and quality into making ros wines, as recently confirmed in Wine Spectator magazine. Theres probably never been a better time to be a ros drinker,Ž Jennifer Fie-dler writes in the July 31 edition. Vint-ners everywhere have been upping their game in the vineyards and cellars. The result is a new wave of high-quality dry ross from around the world.Ž Mr. Greenfield also devoted some time and energy to the Bordeaux Classified Growth booth, where a vast selection of 2010 vintage Bordeaux was available for sampling. Because these were so young in the bottle, it was hard to pick a winner,Ž he says. They just all needed more age and development.Ž Not only that, he adds, the wines are very pricey. My friends and I are drinking the Bordeaux we have in our cellars, but were not replac-ing them.Ž Instead, he says, hes filling his racks with California cabernets and other wines. He zeroed in on a couple of wines that interested him most and is exploring the prospect of importing them to the states. One is a white Bordeaux, Ch. La Fleur Jonquet, a blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon that he believes would sell at about $25 per bottle. He wasnt the only one looking for new merchandise. Bethany Frick is the senior vice president of merchandising for Total Wine & More. Quoted in the final Vinexpo news release, Ms. Frick says, We met with over 200 producers and will be bringing in over 50 products.Ž Adam Strum, co-founder and chairman for Wine Enthusiast magazine, was upbeat about this years fair. Its the best exhibition I have taken part in for many years,Ž he says in the Vinexpo release.
