561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART ATTACK. Door to balloon time measures the time it takes for a hospital to get a heart attack patient from its ER to its cath lab to open blocked arteries. The goal is 90 minutes. More is bad. Less is good. One team in this region is consistently doing it in less than 60 minutes. This is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 WASHINGTON „ The Obama Administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation hearings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to public safety.Ž For Gods sake, what a pack of pusillanimous pansies. The story that led off with this sorry announcement appeared a few days ago in The New York Times, a bastion of the far left, like all media outlets. Left, by the way, derives from the AngloSaxon word lyft,Ž meaning weak, and the Latin word sinistra, originally meaning left, but later connoting something sinister and evil, such as a media outlet. So they want to suspend deportation of us? What a regiment of boneheads. They think we shouldnt be blamed for the sins of our fathers. Wow, maybe theyre Christians. Or maybe they suffer from some similar viral or genetic malady. The sinister pinko who sponsored this legislation, Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois, claims that these young people should not be punished for their parents mistakes.ŽCan you believe that he and these other lefties actually say stuff like that? Should not be punished for their parents mistakes.ŽWhy not? Thats as good a reason to punish them as any, and one of the most common still in use across the planet. Pun-ishing children for what their parents do is the grease that keeps the old wheel turning, isnt it? And check this out: The new policy is expected to help thousands of illegal immi-grants who came to the United States as young children, graduated from high school, and want to go on to college or serve in the armed forces.Ž There you go. They want to get smart or defend us, or both. Us, the kings of illegal! Man, what a great country. Even better, they want to defend us after their parents have worked their asses off for low wages with no benefits in rigorous conditions, under threat of deportation. As soon as I read Sen. Durbins comment and the rest of the story in the Great Gray Lady (thats what they used to call The New York Times, but now it should be the Great Lyft Lady) I ran outside with my Second Amendment rights and opened fire on the nearest palmetto scrub. I love the smell of gunsmoke in the morning. Up and down my road I could hear other shooters, my neighbors, blazing away (Im not kidding about this, although they do it regularly with no seeming reason). Maybe theyd targeted some of those illegal immi-grants. Each other, in other words.The funniest thing about all this is status, ours in particular. Undeniably, were the kings of illegal when it comes to immigration. Me. My neighbors. You. Not those little brown peo-ple from south of the border who do most of the field farming in the region and the state. We (my forbears and yours) didnt just sneak in here all meek and mild like they did hoping to find work that no truck-driving, gun-toting, rear-bumper-beef-for-supper advocate of deportation for brown people would be caught dead doing. We werent looking to ship money home to our families, or maybe someday win a citizenship for our kids in the greatest nation ever invented by God or man (that would be a clear and bold act of love handed from parent to child). Nosireebob. We were looking to kick ass and take names, and we did. We kicked the crap out of those little brown people called Indians, to start with. We used repeating rifles and sheer numbers and unapologetic, unself-conscious determination, along with God, whom we invoked regularly. And we ran right over the top of them. Except for the Seminoles, of course, who fought us to a standstill, and except for that small diversion from 1846 to 1848. Thats when us illegals ran down to Mexico with the U.S. Army, where we were illegal-times-two, and whipped their sorry little butts just for fun. We had both Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant serving as West Point graduates and young lieutenants, and those boys werent kidding around, as time would tell. High casualty counts in the name of illegal immi-grants? No problem. Just a pleasant little warm-up for the Civil War. Bob and Ulysses and the boys shot a whole parcel of Mexicans and absconded with a huge chunk of Mexican territory, millions of square miles as a matter of fact. Made these modern drug gunnies look like cotton candy piss ants. The Mexican territory they took included not only Texas but a then trackless region inhabited by some other little brown people the Mexicans didnt respect (except in a fight) any more than we did „ Apaches, Comanches and the like. That extended from the current Mexican border all the way north across Texas and New Mexico to the Arkansas River. The Arkansas flows out of the Rockies and eastward through the Royal Gorge in Colo-rado „ the old Mexican border „ which lies about 20 miles south of the big cattle ranch where my grandfather homesteaded 97 years ago. I should probably mention this: Walter Nash staked his claim, later amounting to between 50,000 and 75,000 acres (and probably more when I was a boy), on land owned only a few decades before by the Ute Indians. Good hunters. Good fighters. They didnt have a chance against us. Meanwhile back at the Obama ranch, Republican Rep. Lamar Smith, of Formerly Mexico (Texas is what they call it now), denounced the new policy. He calls it backdoor amnesty to illegal immigrants.Ž We just kicked in the front door, after all.And a guy named Roy Beck, described in the Great Lyft Lady as president of Numbers USA, claims its a jobs issue.Ž According to him, The president is taking sides, putting illegal aliens ahead of unemployed Americans.Ž Sure, Roy. Thats why Ive never driven by a crowded bus lot in Florida counties where farm labor contractors pick up workers and seen a single beefy unemployed Anglo male standing there waiting for a job with the other, albeit newer, illegal immigrants. It couldnt be that the older illegals are lazier and whinier than the newer illegals, could it? Q COMMENTARY Our forebears didn’t need backdoor amnesty — just good ammo roger WILLIAMS O

When the gators owner tracked down the three nearby, they denied the theft and insisted that theirs is an altogeth-er-different 14-foot-long stuffed alli-gator. (Wards blood-alcohol reading was 0.40.) When deputies in Monroe County, Tenn., arrested a woman for theft in August, they learned that one of the items stolen was a 150-year-old Vati-can-certified holy relic based on the Veil of Veronica (supposedly used to wipe Jesus face before the crucifixion). The painting had been stolen from the closet of a trailer home on a back road in the Tennessee mountains, where a local named Frosty,Ž age 73, had kept it for 20 years with no idea of its sig-nificance. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEGovernmentin action Of the 1,500 judges who referee disputes as to whether someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits, David Daugherty of West Virginia is the current soft-touch champion, finding for the claimant about 99 percent of the time (compared to judges overall rate of 60 percent). As The Wall Street Jour-nal reported in May, Judge Daugherty decided many of the cases without hear-ings or with the briefest of questioning, including batches of cases brought by the same lawyer. He criticized his less lenient colleagues, who act like its their own damn money were giving away.Ž (A week after the Journal report, Judge Daugherty was placed on leave, pending an investigation.) The Omaha (Neb.) Public School system spent $130,000 of its stimulus grant recently just to buy 8,000 copies of the book The Cultural Proficiency Journey: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School ChangeŽ „ that is, one copy for every single employee, from principals to building custodians. Alarmingly, wrote an Omaha World-Her-ald columnist, the book is riddled with gobbledygook,Ž endless graphs,Ž and such tedium as the cultural proficiency continuumŽ and discussion of the dis-equilibriumŽ arising due to the struggle to disengage with past actions associated with unhealthy perspectives.Ž Once hired, almost no federal employee ever leaves. Turnover is so slight that, among the typical causes for workers leaving, death by natural causesŽ is more likely the reason than fired for poor job performance.Ž According to a July USA Today report, the federal rate of termination for poor performance is less than one-fifth the private sectors, and the annual retention rate for all fed-eral employees was 99.4 percent (and for white collar and upper-income workers, more than 99.8 percent). Government defenders said the numbers reflect excel-lence in initial recruitment. In January, Alison Murray purchased her first-ever home, in Aberdeen, Scot-land, but was informed in August that she has to relocate, temporarily, because the house has become infested with bats, which cannot be disturbed, under Scot-tish and European law, once they settle in. Conservation officials advised her that she could probably move back in Novem-ber, when the bats leave to hibernate. Q Reverse affirmative action In McGehee, a town of 4,200 in southeastern Arkansas, a black girl (Kym Wimbe rly) who had f inished first in her senior class was named only co-Žvaledictorian after officials at McGehee High changed the rules to avoid what one called a potential big mess.Ž As a result, in an ironic twist on affirmative action,Ž the highest-scor-ing white student was elevated to share top honors. Said Kyms mother, We (all) know if the tables were turned, there wouldnt be a co-valedictorian.Ž In July, the girl filed a lawsuit against the school and the protocol-changing principal. Q (Not so) great artIn his signature performance art piece, John Jairo Villamil depicted both the excitement and danger of the city of Bogota, Colombia, by appearing on stage with a tightened garbage bag over his head and his feet in a bucket of water, holding a chain in one hand and a plants leaf in the other. At a May show at Bogotas Universidad del Bosque, Mr. Villamil, 25, fussed with the tightened bag and soon collapsed to the floor, stirred a little, and then was motionless. The audience, likely having assumed that the collapse was part of the performance, did not immediately render assistance, and Mr. Villamil lost consciousness and died in a hospital five days later. Q Hitler’s dollsNews of the Weird has reported on life-sized, anatomically correct dolls manufactured in fine detail with human features (e.g., the Real Doll,Ž as one brand is called), which are as different from the plastic inflatable dolls sold in adult stores as fine whiskey is to $2-a-bottle rotgut. An early progeni-tor of the exquisite dolls, according to new research by Briton Graeme Donald, was Adolf Hitler, who was worried that he was losing more soldiers to vene-real disease than to battlefield injuries, and ordered his police chief, Heinrich Himmler, to oversee development of a meticulously made doll with blonde hair and blue eyes. (However, according to Mr. Donald, the project was stopped in 1942 and all the research lost in the Allies bombing of Dresden, Germany.) Among those who had heard of Hitlers earlier interest, according to Mr. Donald, were the creators of what later became the Barbie doll. Q

PLUS receive $10 off your “ rst two weekly visits FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 A7 Working closely with a team of researchers from Duke University, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have helped identify a molecular pathway that plays a key role in stress-related damage to the genome, the entirety of an organisms hereditary information. The new findings, published in the journal Nature on August 21, could not only explain the development of certain human disorders, they could also offer a potential model for prevention and therapy. While the human mind and body are built to respond to stress „ the well-known fight or flightŽ response, which lasts only a few minutes and raises heart rate and blood glucose levels „ the response itself can cause significant damage if maintained over long periods of time. When stress becomes chronic, this natural response can lead to a number of disease-related symptoms including peptic ulcers and cardiovascular disorders. To make matters worse, evidence indicates that chronic stress eventually leads to DNA damage, which in turn can result in various neuropsychiatric conditions, miscarriages, cancer, and even aging itself. Until the new study, however, exactly how chronic stress wreaks havoc on DNA was basically unknown. Precisely how chronic stress leads to DNA damage is not fully understood,Ž said Derek Duckett, associate scientific direc-tor of the Translational Research Institute at Scripps Florida. Our research now outlines a novel mechanism highlighting b-arrestin-1 as an important player.Ž The long-term effects of these stress hormones on DNA damage identified in the study represent a conceptual as well as a tangible advance, according to Robert J. Lefkowitz, a Duke University professor of medicine who led the study. Since stress is not time limited and can be sustained over months or even years, it is well appreciated that persistent stress may have adverse effects. The newly uncovered mechanism involves -arrestin-1 proteins, 2-adrenore-ceptors (2ARs), and the catecholamines, the classic fight-or-flight hormones released during times of stress„adrena-line, noradrenaline, and dopamine. Arres-tin proteins are involved in modifying the cells response to neurotransmitters, hor-mones, and sensory signals; adrenoceptors respond to the Catecholamine noradrena-line and adrenaline. Under stress, the hormone adrenaline stimulates 2ARs expressed throughout the body, including sex cells and embryos. Through a series of complex chemical reactions, the activated receptors recruit -arrestin-1, creating a signaling pathway that leads to catecholamine-induced deg-radation of the tumor suppressor protein p53, sometimes described as the guardian of the genome.Ž The findings also suggest that this degradation of p53 leads to chromosome rear-rangement and a build-up of DNA damage both in normal and sex cells. These types of abnormalities are the primary cause of miscarriages, congenital defects, and men-tal retardation, the study noted.

This is especially true if the behavior change is sudden. If you start trying to retrain a pet whos sick, not only will you get nowhere, but youll also delay the resolution of the condi-tion that may be causing your pet discom-fort or pain.Its important to know whats normal for your pet and to look for small changes in appearance or behavior that could be the early signs of illness, even before they prompt annoying behavior problems. Its important to always keep an eye on your pets overall condition, for example, being careful to note a loss in weight, a newfound dullness to his coat or a change in energy levels. Changes in eating and elimination habits are also worthy of investigation, as are subtle shifts in temperament „ such as a pet who seems a little more aloof or more clingy.Double your vigilance when your pet crosses into the senior years. Many of the problems pet lovers assume are just part of the aging process „ stiff joints or absentmindedness „ can be treated, with both traditional and alternative methods available. Such treatments can vastly improve your aging pets quality of life, and yours as well, since you wont be dealing with the accompanying behavior problems. If youre already dealing with unwanted behavior, call your veterinarian first, because pun-ishing a sick pet isnt fair, and it wont fix a thing. Q When a good pet goes bad, illness may be the problembehavior changes in a cat whose body is suddenly supercharged. That snapping dog? A painful ear infection may be the culprit, or perhaps joint pain. The fact that shes snapping when petted, not biting, speaks volumes about her good temperament, despite her extreme pain. And what about the cat whose perfect potty habits are suddenly gone? His case could have any number of medical causes behind it, from an infection or kidney dis-ease to diabetes. With good medical care, all three of these pets will likely be made healthy and should be able to be well-mannered pets again. Cases such as these make clear why the first rule of solving any behavior problem is to make sure that its not a medical probSome of the saddest emails I get are from people who are punishing or even contemplating ending the lives of formerly well-mannered pets with new behavior problems. So many of these pet lovers chalk up the changes to spiteŽ or some other off-beat reason while missing the most obvious reason of all: Their pet is sick. Some everyday examples: „ An 8-year-old cat who has always been pretty relaxed suddenly starts zoom-ing around, knocking things off tables and using claws in play.„ A 9-year-old collie mix who has always been trustworthy and happy suddenly starts snapping when being petted. „ A 6-year-old cat suddenly starts missing the litter box, even though there has been no change in the location, filler or cleanliness.

PAGE 10 FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 If they worked like a charm for everyone, of course, wed all be working. Any-one wedded to statistics might wonder why more and more Americans are out of work longer and longer. Advising someone else about landing a job, counselors acknowledge, or about any aspect of living, is easier than step-ping into his or her shoes and going through it. In Bait and Switch,Ž an account of her experiences looking for professional work, Barbara Ehrenreich tells of pay-ing for coaches, traveling to network-ing occasions and executive job-search training sessions,Ž undergoing a physi-cal make-over and efforts to reshape her personality to fit the preferences of employers. She offers these words of caution about what she calls the transi-tion industryŽ aimed at the white-collar, middle-class and professional jobless: When the unemployed...reach out for human help and solidarity, the hands that reach back to them all-too-often clutch and grab.Ž Much of the advice, in fact, seems to belittle and reduce, based on the idea that we are products and need to pitch ourselves as such. Packaging becomes appearance and tone. Fifteen-second commercials become illustrative storiesŽ about what we can do. We are reduced to what we have to offer to the people in charge. Judy Dunn and Mike McLaren and their co-workers at Workforce Alliance say they understand the skepticism. We live, though, they say, in a first-take, quick-serve, bottom-line world, where quick action and a positive approach get results. Take a glance at other books, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People,Ž or updated versions of What Color is Your Parachute?Ž Try these things, they say, and look at the differ-ence they make. Everyone interviewed for this series, to a person, applauds Workforce Alliance and praises various counselors there. I think they do a really nice job,Ž Chet Zawadzki says. Ive been working with them since March or so. I wish I had found them earlier.Ž Debbie Wemyss adds, Every once in awhile I hit my threshold, and thats when I pick up the phone and I call Judy, say I need five minutes of your time. I need to vent, please.Ž A few hours later shell call back and say, OK, Im ready, I have my soda. Let me have it. Shes great about it, and I respect her time so I keep it short. Shes very skilled. I cant speak highly enough about her and Martha Sanchez and the other people at Workforce Alliance.Ž Some of the jobless, looking elsewhere, also have stories of shysters, charging money just to register or taking a slice of income afterward. The solution, they dis-cover, starts and ends with themselves. Heres a sampling of Workforce Alliances and Ms. Toussaints time-tested counsel: Q Work through anger and loss and move on. Communing with family and friends, going for counseling, sharing stories with other job-hunters, finding a positive, forward-looking focus, good diet and even regular exercise can help. Keep to a daily routine, as you did when working. If youre in shorts and a T-shirt, youre not in job mode,Ž Judy Dunn says. You have to put on the shirt and the pants or the dress, how you go to work, and it changes your mind-set.Ž Q Do not watch the news. Catch up, if you must,Ž Ms. Dunn says, but dont watch in the morning and then at noon and then at 5 and then at 11. Do not do that. You will sink.Ž Q Take a self-inventory. What really makes you happy?Ž Ms. Dunn says. Make a list, very elementary, likes and dislikes. Is it a sport? Is it sitting outside reading books? What do you dislike? Some folks cant sit in a cubicle all day. Some cant be out on the road; they dont want to travel. When youre looking at the oppor-tunities, based on education and skill set, where is most of your day going to spent? So this could be a great job and its my top five likes, but its also my first and second dislike. Its not a good job for you.Ž Q Collect a job-hunting network of acquaintances, friends and former co-workers. Its all about relationships,Ž Pamela Toussaint says. Relationships are going to make or break your job search. Youve got to be a people-person.Ž Q Attend public job and career fairs and workshops. You go early,Ž Ms. Tous-saint says. You have your freshly printed business cards, walk around and meet people, exchange cards, go on LinkedIn, invite them to join the network.Ž Q Volunteer. Everybody has a skill, has a gift,Ž Ms Toussaint says. There are JOBLESSFrom page 1 EVEN A CASUAL LISTENER CAN HEAR THE tug-of-war in Elena Oliveris voice. One minute, she says, Being out of work, my life has changed dramatically. Things break down in the house, and you think to yourself, how am I going to replace that? Things you didnt think twice about five years ago. Like the coffee maker goes, or my watch broke. Now I have to think twice about discre-tionary spending.Ž Then her tone changes, her face brightens. I know Im good, that I have to keep getting out there,Ž she says. You cant live in the past. What Im excellent at is producing marketing pro-grams. I need to find a place for that, in something I can believe in.Ž For nearly all who are out of work, the immediate and long-term outlook can teeter between hopeful and despairing. As rejections mount, they become dis-couraged. The trick, as they try to push uphill while fighting the slide backward, is how to find their footing. Nobody likes doubt in an interview. Living for the moment in West Palm Beach, Ms. Oliveri faces the added chal-lenge of being relatively new in town. Her networks, she says, are in New York City, where she worked in advertising for McCann Erickson, a major glob-al advertising firm, and in San Diego, where she worked in non-profit mar-keting for the San Diego Center for Children and Scripps Health Founda-tion and directed self-empowerment seminars for Landmark Education. New York work was at the beginning of my career,Ž she says. Advertis-ing is for the young people.Ž But sell-ing something she believes in, she says, taps her youthful energy. After she moved to Florida two years ago, she worked as a contractor in marketing at Florida Power & Light, until her contract ended in January. As much as they loved me, they cant add to staff right now,Ž she says. Her search, as for so many looking for new work, is not only for a regular pay-check and decent healthcare but also for who she is, for what she does best and cares about most, and for a job that fits. For meaningful work. In a down economy, in any economy, some see that idea as self-indulgence. Take the best work you can get, they say, and grind it out while youre looking. Employers and their HR staffs, though, can usually read a short-term outlook. Ms. Oliveri has the wisdom of more than 20 years in the professional world, and she says that those who take jobs that dont fit just for a paycheck are actually costing their employers and co-workers money and energy. Another issue is faking „ or, at least, shortening „ rsums. Profes-sional workers, seeking paychecks in retail or clerical work, learn that they need to hide their credentials, stow any reference to their hard-fought college degrees, their executive or managerial experience, their higher salaries. With the full rsum, nothing. Going short, they get play. Ms. Oliveri just wants back in, back into good work for decent money and something with a future. Even without healthcare, she says, contract work is OK, as long as you know how long the contract will last. Maybe, she acknowledges, most Florida employers are up-against-it, too Just now, shes reshuffling herself. She grew up in New Jersey, the New York suburbs, and marketing took her to California. Her voice strengthens as she talks about volunteer work she did in San Diego, training children to believe in themselves. She strives, she says, for that same opportunity to contribute in her next job. She admits that, at moments, she wonders what would happen if there isnt a next job. I do fine by myself,Ž she says. I keep busy. But, although Im older, Im still mentally young at heart. Im not ready for a sedentary lifestyle.Ž Her latest business card, under her name in a box against a line of stripes, starts with Marketing € Administration € Non-Profit.Ž Phone, e-mail, and online LinkedIn address follow. Below, she adds Exceeding Expectations at Every Opportunity.Ž Employers may not ask about age, on penalty of discrimination charges, but in many places age is the invisible and unspoken elephant in the room. Some dodge it with physical requirements, though many in the fitness-conscious 60s-70s generation can still meet them. Many use skill with computer software applications as a stumbling block. Most say nothing. Elena Oliveri would love to work in fund-raising and marketing and she has tested the waters in education and the arts. More than anything, she wants to contribute, and to be paid a fair wage for doing it. As for networking, she says, thats also a challenge these days. People dont want to take a chance,Ž she says. Colleagues dont want to risk their reputations promoting you. The most they will do is say, Well, Ill give your rsum to someone, a friend. You dont even get the name of the friend, so you can follow up. Its very difficult. They tell us at Workforce (Alliance) to get the name and the number of people, then call them directly. You call and say, Ill buy you coffee. Well, they dont have time. You just wonder, Wasnt there somebody who helped YOU out? So Im looking at volunteering in the arts.Ž She knows its a long-shot, she says, and adds, You still have to go with the game you know.Ž Even, she acknowledges, when youre standing on the sidelines, on your toes, waiting for the call. Q Wasnt there somebody who helped you?ELENA OLIVERI’S STORY BY TIM NORRIStnorris@” OLIVERI “They tell us at Workforce (Alliance) to get the name and the number of people, then call them directly.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 NEWS A11 THE SURPRISE WITH CHET ZAWADZKI OF Abacoa, Town of Jupiter, isnt how he lost his job. Familiar story: smaller, family-owned company taken over by a bigger one, then the parent corporation expands. The com-pany culture changes, costs and jobs are cut, the old guard is out the door. The surprise is WHO he was and what he was doing when he lost it. Mr. Zawadzki is an IT guy, a computer expert who started programming with stacks of punch cards and steeped himself in every electronic advance, a seasoned expert in Internet tech-nology. Hes been respected by co-workers, cordial, cooperative, a go-to utility man, a director, a manager, a team player. He signed on in 1991 as IT manager with a Laramie Tire Distributors, in Norristown, Pa. Five years later, Laramie and several similar companies were bought by Tread-ways Corp., the U.S. tire distribution arm of Sumitomo Corp. of Japan, and they brought Mr. Zawadzki along as director of informa-tion technology. It was actually one of the best companies Ive worked for in my life,Ž he says. The company itself was run by a core group of smart, savvy people, and our Japanese parent brought in a lot of excellent business practices and metrics. It was fun to work there.Ž Then, in 2008, Sumatoma tucked that subsidiary into newly acquired TBC Corp., based in Palm Beach Gardens. When the larger company moved him from Pennsyl-vania to Florida, Mr. Zawadzki saw it as a step up. His wife, Diane, gave up a well-paying human services job to join him. The expectation was that we would come down here and, after a couple of years, Diane would retire,Ž he says. Id work as long as I wanted.Ž Midway through 2010, out of the blue, he was told they were eliminating his job. Its traumatic,Ž he says. I grew up in Bridesburg in northeast Philadelphia, a blue-collar neighborhood, factories, and in my family you worked. I dont think I knew of anyone who didnt. My father was a chemical worker at Roman-Haas, and he worked there from when he came back from the Second World War until he retired in 1978. If you were out of work, that was a source of shame.Ž After the ax fell, Mr. Zawadzki stayed with TBC another 30 days to ease the transition. Look, I understand that things change,Ž he says. Treadways treated its people very, very well. When we came down here, I understood that TBC was going through a lot of turmoil. I think that if Sumitomo hadnt taken over, they might have gone bankrupt. Their technology was old. Their existing processes were inad-equate to handle the growth that they were taking on. I was excited to come down and help in their effort to upgrade and prepare them to move forward.Ž Internet and telecommunications, the digital realm, might seem humming with prospects. Mr. Zawadzkis friends thought hed land a new job in a few weeks, a couple of months at most. The cutting edge, he discovered, can cut both ways. IT has changed so dramatically,Ž he says. These days IT is all about certifications on the technical level, and, for my money, the technology changes too fast for you to keep up with the certifications. There are too many certification groups, certifying the same skill sets. You see peo-ple paying thousands of dollars for certifi-cations that will need to be upgraded (for more money) in two years or be rendered obsolete. Also, if your company doesnt stay current with new technology, youre at a disadvantage because your skills will atrophy. Many companies dont, or wont, train anymore; they just replace workers with new employees who have taken certi-fication courses.Ž Mr. Zawadzki lost his job a year ago. At age 62 hes still out of work. That brings training into play to keep up-to-date, and with it come institutions, public and private, offering courses for profit. Chet Zawadzki knows plenty about that, too. In Penn-sylv ania, he once worked as director of a proprietary school in information technol-ogy called Computer Learning Center. We were accredited by the Penn sylv ania State Board of Private Licensed Schools and audited on a consistent basis, but a lot of the ads and schools I see down here seem so incredibly shaky,Ž he says. Many of the ads I see seem to prey on the poor, the unedu-cated, and on older workers. I dont recall seeing as much of this up North. Down here it seems like a cottage industry.Ž He has seen a sea-change, too, in finding and applying for job openings. If youve gone out to many company and career web sites,Ž he says, everything is driven by HR recruitment software. Now, dont misunderstand me. I like information technology. Im an advocate of it. Im com-fortable with it. But the tools that are outs almost maddening. I feel sorry for anyone using these tools, because on each of the different sites you have to create your resume. Sometimes you can upload, but not often, and they all want you to do their own individual process. You spend more time working with the software, and its all slightly different; some of its quirky, some of its not implemented correctly; you fill something out and it doesnt do any-thing, it doesnt come back with an error message, youre often not quite sure if it made it to its destination. How often do I hear back? Almost never.Ž He is ready, he says, to move into supply chain management, where he can use his long experience in distribution. In the job hunt, resources and attitude become crucial. Mr. Zawadzki affirms that he is luckier than many. Diane, working for the Veterans Administration, he says, mostly enjoys her job. Weve been together for 23 years, and we understand the circumstances, traumat-ic as they may be, and dont take it out on each other,Ž he says. Weve been fortunate because weve saved a lot, so theres less pressure on the financial front. But, still, weve lost a significant income over the last year. And we may have to relocate again.Ž Their support system includes Dakota, nickname Buddy, an 11-year-old yellow Lab-rador retriever he and his wife adopted a year and a half ago from Safe Harbor. We picked a senior dog because, the poor guy, it was like nobody wanted him,Ž Mr. Zawadzki says. Hed been there awhile, and he was really kind of shell-shocked by the experience. Hes the sweetest dog. He loves me being out of work. More walks! Me? I need to work. Im getting sick of my own cooking.Ž Q How often do I hear back? Almost neverCHET ZAWADZKI’S STORYpeople out there who need help and cant pay for it. Youre gonna meet somebody else out there whos of like mind. They may work for a company that youre try-ing to get into, so think of volunteering as another way to expand your network.Ž Q Create a rsum that shows what you can do, with pointed examples. Q Target and research potential employers. Its not about throwing 50 rsums out there,Ž Judy Dunn says. Its about targeting the right company. What do I want to be when I grow up? Whats the next venture in my life?Ž Q Tailor your rsum to each potential employer. Read the job description in detail, match the fit against key words and, if its right, use those words in your rsum and cover letter. Generally, what an employer puts in the first few sentences of a job description is whats most important to them,Ž Ms. Dunn says. If you havent addressed that, up front, youre gonna miss out. In this market today, if your key words are not in the top two-thirds of the page, the (Human Resources) computer will actually elimi-nate you.Ž Q Build and sustain your brand. Spurred by online multi-media, self-image and packaging have become part of personal presentation. Be true to yourself, but also consider putting your best self forward. Q Online isnt the answer. Get off your duff. The reality is, its still only 5 per-cent are finding their jobs on the Internet, OK?Ž Judy Dunn says. Eighty percent are getting out there. Networking is still the number one way, period.Ž Q Hand out a business card. Include your basic contact information and a title that expresses your strengths. Business cards are free,Ž Ms. Toussaint says. You can make your own on Word, print it off at the library. Or go on, $9.99 for 200.Ž Q In the interview, listen carefully, be positive and honest but not self-indul-gent or confessional, show your inter-est. Employers are going to hire people they like, period,Ž Ms. Dunn says. Have a smile on your face, shoulders back, head up. Its not the person with the most talent or the best education. Its the person who fits in their culture. You still have to be the one they like.Ž You also, she adds, need to decide whether you like THEM. Q Develop a number of short, crisp stories to illustrate your work experience. It is so much more powerful when you can give examples from your past,Ž Pamela Toussaint says, because what are the hiring managers trying to decipher? How youre going to help them solve their problems, right?Ž Q Ask questions. Show youve done your homework by asking specific things about the company and its culture. And, afterward,Ž Ms. Dunn says, you need to ask, How do you like to communicate? May I have one of your business cards, and I see you have a phone and an e-mail, which way do you prefer to communi-cate? Why not ask? Id like to follow up with you, is it OK if I call in a week? In a day? If I dont know when theyre mak-ing that decision, how do I know when to follow up?Ž Q Dont underestimate the receptionist. Some companies are watching you from the moment you arrive in the park-ing lot,Ž Ms. Toussaint says. When youre sitting in the foyer or the open area, theyre watching you. If youre sitting here texting your friends or talking on the phone, or disengaged with whats going on around you, thats a huge red flag to companies. Theyre going to come out and ask that receptionist, how was this person acting? What were they doing? What do you think? Remember, whos the most powerful person in a company? The receptionist.Ž Q Send a thank-you note You have an interview at 4 this afternoon?Ž Ms. Toussaint says. By the open of business tomorrow you should have a thank-you note out to them. Its nice to have a hand-written note in the mail to them, but you should also have a quick e-mail.Ž Q When turned down, dont take it personally. Refer to step one. Q Keep moving ahead. Trouble letting go of the old dreams.... I see that every day,Ž Judy Dunn says. It takes some folks a couple of months; some folks are three years in and theyre still waiting for some-thing to come back. Were going forward, as a society. Even if every computer on the planet crashed and burned, someone would figure out a way to get them back up. Were not going back. Be realistic and move forward.Ž Amid the job-killing ravages of the current economy, counselors acknowledge, no one is immune. Judy Dunns husband, she says, has been looking for work for more than a year. Her sympathy and partnership might help, but even her wise counsel cant overhaul the economy or its politics. He has, she knows, nearly 10 million men and women sharing the hard-ribbed boat. Q BY TIM NORRIStnorris@” ZAWADZKI

PAGE 12 FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 Todd knew he was in for it when he saw his mothers car in the driveway. It was wishful thinking to believe he would come home to some peace and quiet. Predictably, Rachel was at the front door in tears. Your mother is driving me up the wall. Today, she had the nerve to instruct me on the best way to burp Jonah. Does she think Im a total idiot? Is she the only woman who ever had a baby? Will she ever take a hint and figure out when its time to go home?Ž When Jonah was first born, Todd had found it reassuring to know that both sets of parents were nearby should they need some help. Rachel had taken an indefinite leave from work and had been looking forward to settling in with the baby. Dur-ing their engagement, Rachel and his mom had gone through some rough spots. His mother could be a know-it-all and a bit pushy, but hed been impressed by Rachels warmth and diplomacy in planning the wedding. She seemed to know just how to handle his mother. He had hoped a new baby would draw everyone closer. What he didnt anticipate was how frequently his mother would drop byŽ and how long she would stay. Didnt she have a life? But, worse than that was his mothers bossiness and the way she tried to take over. Rachel was becoming increasingly resentful, and would pick a fight with Todd as if it were his fault that his mother had over-stepped her bounds. Todd had asked his father to intervene but that turned out to be a disaster. His mother was incensed Todd had gone behind her back and blamed Rachel for instigating trouble. She left the house in a huff, saying she had never felt so unwelcome and unappreciated in her life. The tension was unbearable. As much as the birth of a child may bring closeness and joy to the extended family, the relationships may become overbur-dened by the simultaneous challenge of making the necessary accommodations. Hormonal explosions and sleep depriva-tion compromise the young mother as she taxes herself to demonstrate she can master the awesome new responsibilities. With expectations of herself that are often unrealistic, she may feel demoralized when things dont go as she envisioned. If she had been working, she may now be adjust-ing to a stay-at-home routine, without the camaraderie of co-workers and a regular work structure. Time spent with family members, previously limited by demand-ing schedules, may now be open-ended. Throughout their courtship and engagement, young couples often learn a lot about each others upbringing and begin a give and take process of spelling out the place their extended families will have in their everyday lives. All the parties, by now, have sized up each others positive attributes or personality quirks and have established relationships with each other, for better or worse. Young couples have faced the chal-lenge of determining how much they will be influenced by their families values and belief systems. Unresolved hostilities and differences that may have emerged during the courtship and wedding planning will likely be heightened after the baby arrives, as the families juggle to balance the right mix of involvement. The birth of a child ups the ante as the young couple faces the arduous task of asserting separateness and independence from their parents. As they shift their attention to the needs of the child, they may neglect to give their own relationship special care. Its not uncommon for a hus-band or wife to believe that their needs are no longer being considered and that their spouse is being neglectful or unsupportive. When this happens, it wont take much for little things to deteriorate to arguments. It will be helpful to have heart-to-heart discussions, not only about the amount of time they would like to spend with their families, but also about how much of their personal business they are comfortable sharing. For example, Todd might prefer to spend Sundays alone as a private family day. Rachel may argue that her family has traditionally shared Sunday dinners and she does not want to give this up. Rachel may have the additional task of determining how much family visiting time during the day will be the right fit. Although Todd may be at work, (so it is technicallyŽ not his issue,) he can offer tremendous support to Rachel if he offers to broach important topics to his family with her. Rachel may be feeling defensive, believing Todd is disappointed in how she has been relating to his family. It may help if he reminds her that he was so proud of how she handled conflicts during the engagement and that he will support her now when family issues come up. The way the couple speaks to each other and their parents may impact the com-fort of these relationships going forward. Clearly and firmly stating (if possible, with love and consideration) the kind of give and take they would like to have in the relationships will be helpful. Sometimes, the parties are so worried about offending each other that they couch their words and misrepresent what they truly mean. Be prepared to have misunderstandings if you say: Feel free to visit any time.Ž Much better to say: Id love it if you could drop over on Monday or Tuesday for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Does that work?Ž This enables Rachel to have better control over the rest of her life, so she can feel free to take care of business or plan visits with friends, or to rest when the baby naps. When their parents are loving and seemingly well intended, the couple may feel ungrateful if they try to set boundaries. What they really want to say is: We love you, we want you in our lives, but we need our own space and we want the freedom to parent our child our way.Ž It will be important for the older folks to remind themselves that the young parents are test-driving stressful new responsi-bilities and may not always show tact and diplomacy. It would help for them to pay attention to the impact of their visits and advice, regularly checking to make sure they have not over-stepped their bounds. Each set of grandparents may feel further slighted or insecure if it appears that the young couple is favoring the involve-ment of the otherŽ family. All the parties may worry that their efforts may be misunderstood and blown out of proportion. Just as concerning, sen-sitivities may deteriorate to arguments about petty non-issues. Will this couple be able to push through the discomfort of stating a message that may not be well received, and can the extended family rela-tionships thrive when there is straightfor-ward clarification? If the young husband and wife bond together with a clear mes-sage to the others it should head off a lot of confusion and conflict, because there will be a unified feeling of support. If both generations could only remember that everyone has each others best interests at heart, but that they are not going to get it right without a lot of con-sideration and clarity, they will be taking important steps to support all the parties in enjoying what can be a very special time in their lives. Q HEALTHY LIVING u linda LIPSHUTZ O llipshutz@floridaweekly.comGrandparents: Don’t overstep when that new baby arrivesOver the past few weeks, there has been little good news to take to bed with sweet dreams in mind. Being an eternal opti-mist, pessimism does not come naturally. Having spent 10 years in Mississippi, you learn that dwelling on an endless supply of deficits does not create a climate of hope. The burdens borne in that state by history and inheritance are deep still, no matter that it is the 21st century and civilized society is supposed to have fully arrived. Regrettably, there and elsewhere, civility has not risen to the plane of us living and getting along together just fine. Having yet again thought and voiced this gloom only illustrates that desultory thinking is a cul-de-sac from which escape is dif-ficult „ which got me to thinking about our need for good news. Recently, I watched on YouTube a short video clip of the release of Andre,Ž a sea turtle that underwent a long rehabilitation at the Juno-based Loggerhead Marine Life Center. Our staff met there in July to do some future year planning. The place was abuzz with kids and filled with the energy of doing something worthy and measure-able, one turtle at a time. What stirs the heart about this place is the sum of all the center represents to our region, oceans and marine life. Having had the opportunity to encoun-ter this deep sea creature on the eve of its release, I found myself, tears welling up, watching the video of Andres trundle off into the ocean. I felt the same ripple of joy of those on the beach who cheered and applauded. After-wards, I thought sheepishly to myself that things must really be bad when all it takes is a turtles release to provoke weep-ing. Something stirred that hadnt been touched in too long a time „ a moment made poignant by the recognition that something is inherently right and wonder-ful in the world when the survival of even a lowly sea turtle matters. Calling forth and savoring those things all about you that offer strength and sol-ace is an important exercise in a troubled world. Si Kahn, a colleague and songwrit-er, describes this as being able, in the face of great challenges, to keep on keepin on.Ž We live in an era of forbidding and recalcitrant gloom, driven there by winds of uncertainty that are changing the world we thought we knew. To retreat from that ledge, we need the reassurance that, even in the midst of a stampede toward the unknown, beauty can be found in how we choose to see the world. Seeing beauty is redemption from pessimism. Release from pessimism is how we build with hope, brick by brick, a better future. Here are two more things I would nominate as Right in the WorldŽ that measure on the scale of awesome that is proportionate to saving Andre, the sea turtle: the qual-ity and commitment of our communities non-profit leadership and the tremen-dous asset these individuals represent toward achieving, in our time, a more just, humane and caring world. Call me preju-diced but anyone who is engaged in the non-profit sector these days has to have nerves of steel and the courage of a lion. Our region profits enormously from an abundance of seasoned non-profit profes-sionals who are accomplishing important milestones toward improved quality of life in our local communities. They make this commitment of vocation by choice and with a fierce loyalty to serving those who often need societies help the most. They dont just make lemonade out of lemons; they transform lemons into stars on a dark night. Advocates working to protect and sustain now and for future generations, conservation of Floridas unique envi-ronmental resources: in Florida, growth to prosperity is as ketchup is to fries. How many times is it necessary to stand in front of a metaphorical bulldozer, to challenge and question, the wholesale destruction forever of what cannot be put back or replaced? Economic ProgressŽ and its evil twin, Progress-at-Any-Cost,Ž are how we continue to frame unaccept-able choices with no terms of escape and a tiger behind every door. With all the hindsight of which Florida ought to have plenty, we deserve a more intelligent dis-course on issues of sustainability. The Flo-ridians who raise their voices and bring vision, passion, and their reasoned intel-ligence to protection and conservation of the environment are todays wilderness warriors. We can be thankful that caring did not stop with Teddy Roosevelt, as its very likely thered be no Andres left.

It affects our grandfathers and grandmothers, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, neighbors and friends all too often as the number one cause of death in the United States. To put this into perspective, in 2006 heart disease was responsible for one out of every four deaths in this country. The good news? At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, our skilled interventional cardiologists are utilizing advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of the earlier stages of heart disease to help patients beat the statistics and keep heart disease at bay.One of the procedures frequently performed to diagnose heart disease is performed through cardiac catheterization, which helps determine the extent of coronary artery diseasea major contributor to the develop-ment of heart disease. With coronary artery disease, accumulations of fat and calcium, or plaque, cause heart vessels to narrow. This subsequently reduces the amount of blood flow to the heart causing chest pain or even a heart attack if the plaque blocks arteries completely. At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, we have taken cardiac catheteriza-tion to the next level, performing techniques such as the transradial approach. With this approach, interventional cardiologists com-plete catheterization procedures through the radial artery in the wrist instead of the femo-ral artery in the groin.During a traditional cardiac catheterization, cardiac interventionalists thread a long, thin tube (catheter) into the femoral Healing hearts — it’s all in the wristartery in the groin to access the blockage in the heart. With the transradial approach, interventional cardiologists perform the procedure through the radial artery in the wrist. Since arteries are much smaller in the wrist than in the leg and groin, the procedure requires specialized catheters and sheaths, which have been successfully developed with advancements in research and technology. Miniaturization of devices, improvements in devices and techniques, and specialized training programs for physi-cians have all contributed to an increased growth in the practice and efficacy of transradial interventional procedures. The technique can bring significant benefits to the patient, including decreased complica-tions at the puncture site, increased patient comfort, earlier discharge, and shorter hos-pital stays. In fact, many patients can sit up almost immediately following surgery and, in some cases, can be discharged home the same day. In addition, this approach may be suitable for patients of all ages, even those with chronic medical conditions and complex blockages. It is also an option for obese patients, where access through the groin can be difficult. As a hospital with a longstanding dedication to cardiac care, Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical Center takes great pride in protecting the hearts of its community. Providing some of the latest techniques in cardiac catheterization like the transradial interventional procedure is just one way the hospital is making strides to keep our communitys grandfathers and grandmoth-ers, mothers and fathers, sisters and broth-ers, neighbors and friends out of the heart disease statistics.

Massage Envy Spa As part of a joint research effort with the University of Michigan, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have for the first time defined the structure of one of the cells most basic engines, which is required for cell growth, as it assembles from its components. The study reveals a series of redundant mechanisms that assure production of these critical structures while avoiding any missteps that could lead to their destruc-tion or to the production of incorrect cel-lular building blocks. These findings throw new light on a process that is integrally involved in a number of disease states, including cancer and Alzheimers disease. The study, published on August 11 in the advance online edition of the journal Science, reveals the structure of an assembly inter-mediate of the small ribosomal subunit. Ribosomes, which are large macromolecular machines required for cell growth in all organisms, catalyze the production of proteins in all cells. They read the genetic code carried by messenger RNA, and then catalyze or translate that code into proteins within cells, assembling them from amino acids. Understanding the process of ribosome assembly „ which involves almost 200 essential proteins known as assembly fac-torsŽ in addition to the four RNA mol-ecules and 78 ribosomal proteins that are part of the mature ribosome „ is a poten-tially fruitful area of research because of the importance of ribosome assembly for cell growth. The link between defects in ribosome assembly and cancer clearly points to this pathway as a new target for anti-cancer drugs. In the current study, the scientists used cryo-electron microscopy (where samples are studied at temperatures of …150 C) to image the 40S ribosome structure. This is the best-defined ribosomal assembly intermediate we have ever had with true structural information on the location of each assembly factor,Ž said Katrin Karbstein, an associate professor at Scripps Florida and one of the senior authors of the study. It will be helpful in determining whats going on in what is still a relatively unknown process.Ž While most ribosome assembly takes place in the nucleolus, a protein-nucleic acid structure inside the nucleus, the final maturation process occurs in the cyto-plasm, the generalŽ cellular compartment where protein translation occurs. In the cytoplasm, these pre-mature ribosomal subunits encounter large pools of mature subunits, messenger RNA, and vari-ous translation factors. This cellular stew presents a unique challenge, especially keeping the transla-tion process from acting on the subunits prematurely, which would result in their rapid degradation or in the production of incorrectly assembled proteins, both pro-cesses with potentially lethal o utcomes for the cell. The new study shows that that the bound assembly factors cooperate with one another in a highly redundant and multi-pronged approach to prevent such occurrences, chaperoning the pre-40S sub-units to keep them from falling victim to the translational apparatus. Its important to note that this is a single snapshot of the late-stage assembly pro-cess, Ms. Karbstein added. We know bet-ter how the process works but this is by no means a final statement.Ž Q Scripps scientists define structure of cell engineKARBSTEIN

FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 After my dentist of 20 years quoted me a price on an implant, I looked for a second opinion. I had seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the of ce, the rst thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina democrat, I didn’t have a lot of love for Lee; he had gotten the best of me in my rst campaign. I sure as hell wasn’t too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that rst encounter, I felt very comfortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely rst rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby to the dental staff, the Appearance Implants & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure, it was fast, relatively painless, and the result was just perfect. The nished implant works better than I’d expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment, and I have been more than impressed and satis ed by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his profes-sional and friendly staff to many of my friends and colleagues.Congressman (D-SC) John W.

Actually they have a lot in common. They might be traveling down different roads but traders and inves-tors want to get to basically the same place. They both have making money as their primary purpose. There are several ways to differentiate trading from investing: length of time an investment is held, the basis for making/exiting the investment decision (either technical or funda-mental or a combination), and the means of execution (self-executed, professionally managed, or algorith-mic/computer executed), among a host of other factors. Each of these various characteristics has a continuum of possibilities. For instance, with regard to the time an investment is held, high frequen-cy traders are often arbitraging-away price differentials between markets and they might hold something for a nanosecond. The other extreme is the genre of investor akin to War-ren Buffett who might hold an asset forever, or at least longer than most marriages last. But, in very broad and general terms, investing is associated with: longer-term time horizons, funda-mental analysis, which is most often the process behind asset selection, and human decision-making and exe-cution, albeit with some computer-ized assistance. By the very nature of any human process, a range of emotions (fear and greed, complacency, panic, euphoria, etc.) will influence (or even drive) the decision-making process. A longer-term horizon is often synonymous with a buy and holdŽ approach without any triggers to exit a position on prices drops. Rarely are there price rules,Ž i.e. no hard and fast rules for stopping losses. The underlying concept in this case is that the fundamentals of impend-ing growth, management changes, dividend hikes, etc. will be made manifest or work themselves out. Yes, there can be forms of portfolio diversification (ranging from nomi-nal to true asset diversification) but rules for money management are infrequent. Now contrast that to trading which is, in broad and generalized terms, shorter-term in time horizon (rang-ing from a nanosecond to dayto medium-term trading spanning sev-eral months). Also, trading is often technical onlyŽ and has a large set of rules for entries, exits and money management of the portfolio. The larger the set of these aforementioned technical rules, the shorter the time horizon, the greater the exposure to markets trading nonstop, the more diverse the investment positions in a portfolio, then the more probable it is that the trader relies on algorith-mic computerized trading. Unlike human decision-making, this trading has no emotion; it is void of fear, greed, panic or other emotions that influence human decision-making or execution. The objective is a con-sistent application of the rules and tools in the most efficient and objec-tive ways. A lot of computerized programs were birthed by hands-on, very experienced traders who then transformed their trading methods into algorithms. Now, do technicians disregard fundamental information as irrelevant? No, not at all; they know that behind price movements are the realities of the fundamentals of the market (ƒ. and buyer/seller emotions). But, for many traders, price reflects that which can often only be fundamen-tally explained and articulated after the fact. I interface with both the trading and the investing worlds. My observation is that while many investors have not allocated a portion of their portfolio to trading strategies or systems, they are leaning and learning that way as they want to get into faster-moving or more leveraged markets needing round-the-clock disciplines. A sec-ond observation is that the trading community often embraces funda-mental investing with a long-term horizon for portions of its portfolio, though traders are more inclined to bring disciplines of money manage-ment, true diversification and stop losses into their investment portfo-liosƒ as they are less relative and more absolute performance oriented. So, one mindset clearly accepts ele-ments of long-term investing; the other mindset is somewhat reticent to accept trading. I wonderƒ is there a bias, or a fear, or a misunderstand-ing, etc. of trading? Maybe the prob-lem is that the investment advice being rendered is more narrow in perspective and embraces only those products or services offered by the advisers firm. The world is changing, the economies are changing, the weather is changing, wars happen, new Presi-dents get elected, analysts and money managers and investment commit-tees come and go. Yet, the rules of the algorithmic black box are not always changing and consistently applied. The mindset of the trader is most often: Cut losses and let profits run.Ž There might be some real value to add this type of approach to invest-ing to your portfolio. You might con-sider the merits of trading systems (directly leased to you by brokers or offered as a money management product by portfolio managers or advisers). Consider that if the hedge fund managers have embraced black boxesŽ for a portion of their port-folios, it might be that you would do so too. Talk to your adviser as to suitability, seek diversity of opin-ions from multiple advisers and seek counsel from investment experts as pertains to specific asset classes.

PAGE 22 FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 COURTESY PHOTO Beer served in this Gerz stein must taste good. The man with the big grin was called “Smiling Face” by the Stein Auction Co., the auction house that sold it for $529. Beer steins have long been popular. Todays stein is a beer container with a hinged lid and a handle. The lid was the result of health regulations. The bubonic plague of the 1300s, which killed more than 25 million Europeans, and an influx of flies in Europe in the 1400s led to laws that required food to be kept in covered containers. A hinged lid was added to a mug to make a stein. Most beer steins collected today date from after 1800 and are made of pot-tery. One famous German company that used the mark GerzŽ opened in 1857 and remained in business until the 1990s (a new company with the same name was recently established in Ger-many and is using the old Gerz triangle mark). Gerz made steins using glass or pottery. Its regimental and figural 3-D character steins that look like animal or human heads, usually comic, are especially popular. An amusing Smil-ing Face pottery stein marked GerzŽ sold for $529 at the Stein Auction Co.s June auction in Schaumburg, Ill. Q: I have a Hoosier-style Sellers one-piece cabinet that my mother pur-chased secondhand in the 1950s. Ive been unable to figure out how old the cabinet is. There seems to be a lot of information out there about two-piece cabinets, but not about this one-piece unit. The cabinet was a mint-green color originally, and still has the origi-nal flour sifter. Can you help? A: Hoosier cabinets were first made by Hoosier Manufacturing Co. of New Castle, Ind., about 1900. The freestand-ing kitchen cabinets had a work sur-face and shelves and drawers fitted with a flour sifter, coffee and tea can-isters, cracker jars and other kitchen items. Soon all similar cabinets by other makers were called Hoosiers.Ž The G.I. Sellers Co. was the second-largest manufacturer of Hoosier-style cabinets. The company was founded by George Sellers in Kokomo, Ind., in 1888 and moved to Elwood, Ind., in 1905. It closed in 1950. Hoosier-style cabinets were made until the 1930s, when built-in kitchen cabinets became popular. Q: I have a set of dishes that are green and white and have a scene of the interior of what looks like a log cabin. The dishes are marked Colonial Homestead by Royal.Ž Different scenes are pictured on different pieces. The scene on the plates includes a table, chairs, grandfather clock, large fire-place with hanging cookpots and an old-fashioned gun over the fireplace. We find these interesting because we recently built a log cabin. This set was left to me by my great-uncle. It includes service for six people and includes plates, small bowls, cups and Stylish steins designed to prevent diseaseKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terry KOVEL O saucers, a platter and a vegetable bowl. Id like to know how old these are and what they might be worth. A: The Royal China Co. was in business in Sebring, Ohio, from 1934 to 1986. The company made dinnerware, cookware and advertising pre-miums. The Colo-nial Homestead pattern, which includes scenes from a colo-nial home, was designed by Gor-don Parker. It was introduced about 1951 and was sold by Sears, Roebuck & Co. through the 1960s. The dishes sell for very low prices today. Q: I have an old ticket that was my great-grandfathers. Its for a Mexican Bull FightŽ held in the Cripple Creek District of Colorado in August 1895 I understand this was the only bullfight ever held in the United States. Any idea what the ticket might be worth? A: The Mexican bullfight held in Gillett, Colo., on Aug. 24-25, 1895, was billed by its promoter as the first bull fight held in the United States.Ž Two professional bullfighters from Mexico were hired, but the bulls, whether imported or homegrown, were unen-thusiastic participants. So, according to most accounts, the event was a fiasco, a planned third day was can-celed, area humane societies protest-ed and those who attended wanted their money back. The Denver Public Library has a ticket like yours in its collection, and other historical soci-eties around Cripple Creek (south of Denver) probably would be interested in owning one. So you might consider donating yours. If you decide to sell, contact an Old WestŽ auction. Thats where youd probably get the most money and its impossible to predict how much. Gillett, by the way, was a Gold-Rush town thats now a ghost town. Bullfighting was banned in the United States in 1957 although so-called bloodless bullfights are held in some U.S. communities. Q: We found a Civil War discharge paper for Jasper Noon in my mother-in-laws estate and are wondering if it has any value. There is a faded paymasters stamp, an eagle, flags and stars at the top under the words To all whom it may concern.Ž The soldier joined Company C, 50th Regiment of Indiana Infantry, on Nov. 1, 1861, and was dis-charged on Jan. 5, 1865. A: A collector of Civil War items might be interested in the discharge papers. Interest in Civil War items is expected to increase this year, since its the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. Jasper Noons regiment was organized in September 1861 and mustered out in Septem-ber 1865. More American soldiers died during the Civil War than in any other war, but two-thirds of them died of disease, not battle wounds. The 50th Regiment of Indiana Infantry listed 57 men killed in battle or who died of their wounds and 161 who died of disease. Civil War dis-charge papers sell for $60-$80. Tip: To remove verdegris (the green mold that forms on metal) from cos-tume jewelry, mix equal amounts of mayonnaise and ketchup. Rub it on and quickly remove it. Wash. Try again and leave it on longer if the first treatment doesnt work. Dont use on pieces with pearls. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

He drinks the last of his beer in one long draw.Me, too,Ž the man next to him says.Suddenly we are a crowd, assembled en mass, with me at the head. We walk back to the lodge, sweeping through the field I crossed earlier, and the men string out across the path. They fol-low my trail, step up beside me and fall back. They jostle each other as if compet-ing for an endangered species. Q Nothing draws a crowd like manatees mating. On a r ec ent afternoon, a patrol truck cruised down the beach, lights flashing as a throng of beachgoers looked on. Some snapped photos. Some recorded video. Everyone pointed and stared at the mass of grey bodies roiling in the green waters of the gulf. I pushed my way through the crowd, pressing to get close, trying to see what all the commotion was about. The manatees swam close to shore in the knee-deep tides just off the beach, plumes of saltwater splashing as their powerful tails slapped the surface. Whats going on?Ž I asked a man by my side. He kept his camera trained on the watery tumult a few feet in front of us. Theyre mating,Ž he said.All of them?ŽOne in fronts a female.ŽAnd the rest? All those heavy male bodies piled on, trying to stake a claim during the females brief stretch of fer-tility. They pursued her like a rare gem, a coveted item, the last woman in the world „ which, technically speaking, she almost is. Manatees are after all an endangered species. I slowed to let the crowd pass by me Men, like manatees, follow the scent of the female SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSON O as the throng of randy sea cows moved parallel to the beach. A woman spoke as she hurried down the shore. Arent you glad were not manatees?Ž she said. Im at a retreat this week where available women are scarce. There are plenty of men „ married men, divorced men, still-single-and-seeking men. But the women who are free to chat, to flirt, to make poor decisions „ these women are remarkably limited. They have become suddenly more appealing, their value ris-ing with their scarcity, and in the eve-ning cocktail sessions the men rush to pile on.

I ask the people seated with me at dinner if theyre going. Its going to be all dudes,Ž the man to my right says. A total sausage fest.Ž I make my way there anyway, tromping across a field lit by the half moon over-head.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A25 toward the end of 2009, and I felt like I needed to be recharged creatively,Ž she recalls. I wanted to start a project that would challenge me creatively in a different way than what I do every day, which is draw and paint.Ž She also planned to document it on the Internet, so shed be held account-able. She entertained a few ideas, but the one that appealed the most was taking a photograph every day of one of her col-lections and posting it online. On occa-sion, shed draw or paint an imaginary collection. So Ms. Congdon began Collectionaday. com, posting a different photograph or drawing daily, throughout 2010. She went from Day 1 (20 vintage erasers) to Day 365 (seven New Years party favors.) In between, 362 other odd assortments include the plastic baby arms and vintage pool cue chalks, golf tees, bread bag ties, shoelaces, bob-bins, napkin rings, wooden and plastic clothespins, sales receipts, bingo cards, thread, twigs, feathers, river stones, old signage, sepia photographs, cookie cut-ters, paint brushes, matchboxes, hat pins and mid-century kitchenware. The website drew thousands and, a few months into the project, garnered national press. Ms. Congdon was on an NPR photo blog, quoted in a New York Times article about the lure of objects and featured in the February 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine, which flew her and her Scandinavian kitchenware to New York City to be pho-tographed. (Martha Stewart collects old brass plates or platters, Ms. Congdon says. Other collectors featured in the article amassed vintage metal dollhouses, sew-ing patterns and travel books.) Midway through the year, she signed a book deal, though that hadnt been her goal in starting the blog. A Collection a DayŽ was released by the Canadian publisher Uppercase ear-lier this year. In 400-plus pages, the book contains all 365 collections, as well as some introductory essays. It comes in its own collectible tin. Its the size of a brick,Ž Ms. Congdon says. Small and thick.Ž Signed copies can be purchased for $35 at nostalgiaThe images are visually intriguing, the subject matter unexpected. Ms. Congdons work reminds you of what it was like to be a kid, when the world was new and everything was infinitely fascinating. She plays with color and pattern, group-ing her collections in various ways: by color, by shape, by size, by purpose. For the most part, I was grouping by the thing it was,Ž she says. Many of the objects are vintage.I think old things are appealing because they evoke some kind of nostal-gia, or they remind people of things that we dont do anymore, like letter writing by hand,Ž she says. Or maybe people are just attracted to things that people used to use a lot: school supplies or sewing suppliesƒ. I think everyones come into contact with them, at some point.Ž Younger generations, people in their 20s or early 30s, probably dont have a relationship to a lot of things in the book, she says. But if youre over 30 or 35, either you used something I pho-tographed, or you knew someone who did: Oh, I remember my grandmother used to have those needle packs in her sewing basket. Or, I remember I used those crayons in school.ŽGrouping is keyThe other reason people are drawn to these collections is because of how theyre arranged, she theorizes. (Some are) ordinary things that by themselves wouldnt be that interesting, but put them together in a group and arrange them in an interesting way, and all of a sudden youve got a work of art,Ž she says. A collection of plastic leaves recalls Matisse cutouts. Twine wrapped around cardboard look like a fiber art piece. Two rows of pink and red vin-tage golf tees look like an exhibit of alien teeth from some futuristic nature museum. And four plastic wishbones in a row could pass for a minimalist sculpture. Other common items among Ms. Congdons collections: twigs, river stones, rolls of colored tape, paintbrushes. She has a keen eye for composition and color; the way she groups her items makes viewers pay new attention to old objects. As a child, she had a couple of collections. Her first was Madame Alexander dolls, gifts from her mother and then her grandmother. I never had more than six or seven of them,Ž she says. She also collected plastic horses. I was really into collecting and arranging things in my room. My mother always used to nag me to clean my room, and by that, she meant: Take things off the floor, make my bed, vacuum. But my favorite part was to take everything off the shelf, dust them, and put them back. That was the only part I enjoyed. I think that stuck with me through-out my life.Ž Of all her collections, Ms. Congdons mid-century Scandinavian kitchenware is her favorite.A guiding principleFor her blog, she had a rule: All the photographed collections had to be hers. She wouldnt borrow a collection from anyone. My friends would say, I have a collection of such-and-such. Why dont you borrow it and photograph it? and I would say, Not unless you want to give it to me. I have to own everything.Ž A few people did give her collections, including an array of light bulbs. Ms. Congdon photographed them and also drew a picture of them for her book. I loved how they came out in the pho-tograph,Ž she says, adding shed collect more light bulbs if she had a place to display them. Theyre hard to find,Ž she says. Its sculptureƒ theyre really beautiful: very thin glass, and they have beautiful wire inside.ŽCollecting and creatingAs an artist and illustrator, Ms. Congdon, is in good company; many artists collect images and objects, keeping them in their studios. I think theres a connection, whether its physical, or photographing them, or visually memorizing them, between collecting and the creative process,Ž she says. Its where we get our inspira-tion „ from looking at things. Its what evokes memories or emotions for us. Music and smell do that, too.Ž She counts among her clients Poketo for Target, Urban Outfitters, American Greetings, Harper Collins, Random House, Chronicle Books and Trader Joes. She did 150 illustrations for The Dictionary of Extraordinary Ordinary Animals,Ž scheduled for release Sept. 27 by Running Press. But doing the blog and the Collection a DayŽ book was a really interest-ing ride,Ž she says. Shes thinking about doing another year-ofŽ project in 2012 and posting it on the Web, but it wont be related to collections. I feel that this particular project is done,Ž she explains. I did enjoy what I set out to do. I didnt set out to publish a book or make a blog people would enjoy visiting. For me, it was a personal creative challenge. Even though all these other things happened, I still feel like in the end, the personal creative challenge was valuable, and one of the best things to come out of it.Ž Q COLLECTIONFrom page 23 COURTESY PHOTOAbove: Artist Lisa Congdon’s homeLeft: Day 187Below: Ms. Congdon’s website led to a book deal.

Rather, vampires in their pur-est, most villainous cinematic form are hunters who prey on innocent human blood. Thanks to Colin Farrells chilling performance, Fright NightŽ has a bad boy vamp thats so different from Twi-lightŽ hell have you believing vampires are cool again. On the outskirts of Las Vegas, Charley (Anton Yelchin) lives with his mom (Toni Colle tte) in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Their new neighbor, Jerry (Mr. Farrell), seems nice enough, though Charleys friend Ed (Christo-pher Mintz-Plasse) thinks Jerry is a vampire because his windows are shut-tered and he only comes out at night. But this is Vegas, and Jerry works nights on the strip and sleeps during the day, we learn. Ill bet he does. Once Charley discovers Jerry is a vampire, an interesting game of cat-and-mice ensues, as Charleys girlfriend Amy (Imogen Poots) also gets danger-ously involved. Thankfully, a scene in which Charley sneaks around Jerrys house plays with tension rather than predictability, even though someone with Jerrys heightened sense of smell and hearing should obviously know hes there. For help, Charley consults with vampire expert Peter Vincent, whos played by David Tennant as a cross between LA TEST FILMS ‘Fright Night’ +++ Is it worth $14? NoIs it worth $10? Yes b e w m e h dan HUDAK O Russell Brand, Jack Sparrow and Criss Angel. Its an odd combination, I grant you, but it provides a certain kookiness that offsets the dangerous fight for survival. The film is being released in 3D, and to see it in that format is a mistake. Heres a rule for any filmmaker or studio wanting to release a movie in 3D: If most of the story takes place at night, dont use 3D. Far too many the-aters still project 3D without enough light, meaning the image is darker than it should be. As a result, the visuals in Fright NightŽ dont resonate with the depth thats intended, and the appeal of the format is lost. This is especially a shame because director Craig Gillespie clearly has fun with the 3D by spraying blood and having numerous objects hurl toward the screen. If only we could see them better. Seeing the film in regular 2D will also allow you to appreciate Mr. Gillespies craftsmanship. Note the little touches: The way he uses eerie music every time Jerry speaks, the quick flashes of visual effects before a vampire takes a bite „ flourishes like this make the film more dynamic and engaging and, therefore, more enjoyable.Whats more, the best scene comes as Charley, his mother and Amy are escaping Jerry, and an unbroken shot holds much longer than we expect as it moves the camera around the car with ease.Whether you like the film or not, its hard to dispute that its very well made.Because TwilightŽ has literally sucked the fun out of vampire movies, its refreshing to see some fang-toothed predators on the prowl as we do in Fright Night.Ž This is nicely crafted, escapist nonsense fun.

With hands-on guidance and mentoring from industry professionals who work at the regional theater, a team of high school students is currently creating and producing the play The Good Times are Killing Me,Ž a coming-of-age story about interracial conflict and the friendship between two girls. The show will pre-miere at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 17. A poignant drama, Lynda Barrys first play is about Edna, a pre-adolescent girl of the mid-1960s who believes in racial har-mony and develops an interracial friend-ship with Bonna, the girl next door. Life changes as the accelerating civil rights movement converges on the streets of her neighborhood, as soul music provides a soundtrack for the storys laughter, bitter-ness and heartbreak. The student team auditioned more than 50 young aspiring performers and cast 22 local actors ages 8-18. Part of the Theatres Emerging Artist Series, the show is sponsored in part by Betty and Rodger Hess, Tamar and Mil-ton Maltz, Bonnie and John Osher, The Roy A.

PAGE 30 FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2011 (Jan. 5). But look for Wanda Sykes and Larry the Cable Guy (Dec. 11 and Nov. 19, respectively). Were going from Larry the Cable Guy to Wanda Sykes,Ž said Lee Bell, senior director of program-ming. Thats pretty extreme.Ž Look for a lot of new acts this season. We have 18 new shows that have never been here before in Dreyfoos Hall,Ž Mr. Bell said. Im very happy with the diversity of the overall season.Ž That season also includes Hasidic reggae singer Matisyahu (Dec. 29) and the Lennon Sisters (Jan. 25). It comes down to research, he said.We did a marketing survey and Broadway and comedy seemed to be at the top of the list,Ž Mr. Bell said. We have pulled together a season with that in mind, since weve done that market-ing survey.Ž And since the Kravis took over the booking of its Broadway series, it has managed to score some first-run shows. The Addams Family is a first-run show, as is Come Fly Away,Ž he said. La Cage aux FollesŽ will star local favorite George Hamilton as Georges, and Chris-topher Siber recently signed on as Albin. Come Fly Away,Ž based on the music of Frank Sinatra, should hold appeal to a couple of generations of theatergoers. The music is live, performed to Franks voice. Its just astounding,Ž Mr. Bell said. You kind of feel like youre there. Its like the Elvis show they did years ago, with Elvis voice and the original band members playing in sync to the screen.Ž Only there is no screen, and dancers step to the choreography of Twyla Tharp. And Twyla Tharp continues to do great work,Ž he said.Regional Arts changesVeterans of the Kravis Centers Regional Arts clas-sical music season may have noticed the absence of solo vocalists on the program. With Regional Arts, that audience wants orchestras,Ž Ms. Mitchell said. Well, that and it seems opera sing-ers are no more immune to colds and sore throats than their audi-ences during the winter season. Soprano Deborah Voigt had to cancel a few years ago, as did tenor Salvatore Licitra, who provided a memorable make-up concert „ and even then he sang over a cold. Look for some choral works this time around. Theres a lot going on,Ž Mr. Bell said. Regional Arts „ theyre doing the Mozart Requiem with the Munich Symphony. Its a very strong Regional Arts series, with the Cleveland Orches-tra and Joshua Bell.Ž And it doesnt hurt that the past two seasons, Regional Arts has had a strong presence with music journalist Sharon McDaniel, who helps coordinate the series, writes the program notes and gives pre-performance lectures. Sharon is doing a fabulous job,Ž Mr. Bell said. With her pre-concert dis-cussions and the program notes that she composes, it all adds to the appeal of Regional Arts.ŽKravis season evolvesWhen the Kravis Center opened in 1992, it had a strong mix of pop and classical elements. Its opening night included performances by Ella Fitzger-ald, Isaac Stern and Leontyne Price. Our goal is always something for everybody,Ž Ms. Mitchell said. Were not really known as a dance house or an opera house.Ž Mr. Bell agrees.You have to be careful not to push too far out at a performing arts center like the Kravis,Ž he said, adding, Its been a challenge, especially over the past two, three years with the econo-my. We have done very well over the past few years.Ž And that is despite a growing national trend of declining subscriptions, though Mr. Bell says theyre beginning to increase again. That trend is across the board, I believe,Ž Mr. Bell said. People just dont want to plan that far in advance. They dont want to etch in their calen-dars six months, eight months down the road.Ž If there is one thing Mr. Bell knows, it is his audience. How long has he been there now?Itll be 15 years in March. My hair is white now,Ž he said with a laugh. I know which shows will be our chal-lenges, and which will require an extra push to get seats sold. After being here for so long you kind of know what the community standard is.Ž Ms. Mitchell jokes that she has been at the Kravis since she was 12. This season is our 20th season and yeah, its hard to imagine. Time flies when youre having fun,Ž she said. Im starting to feel really dated. That means Ive been here 22 years now.Ž But after 22 years, there still is a certain frisson to her job. I look forward to it all the time,Ž she said. There is lots to do, trying to stay up with what the community expects.Ž And that is a reflection of the times.Obviously in this economy, its a challenge,Ž she said. Nobody is on autopilot here. Everybody is working pretty hard.Ž Q 20THFrom page 1 The CEO’s picks >> Here are ve shows Kravis Center CEO Judy Mitchell says you shouldn't miss:1. Straight No Chaser2.

Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 2 2) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to N o vember 2) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowl-edge to help turn things around. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to F e bruary 18) Youre always concerned about the well-being of oth-ers. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situ-ation, especially where it involves nutrition.

The restaurant, which has opened at Midtown, will offer Creekstone Ranchs natural burger meat, ground to a special blend by Bush Bros. purveyors in West Palm Beach. The restaurant is the brainchild of Michael Curcio, owner of Jupiters Pyro-Grill, a local fast-casual Mexican eatery that may remind you of an upscale Chipo-tle Grill. It is Mr. Curcios first burger joint, and if his name sounds familiar, its because his dad, Chuck, was the owner of Tire Kingdom. But there are no tires for sale here „ just burgers and hot dogs. A single Chuck Burger, served with lettuce, tomato, American cheese and Chucks special spread „ a mayonnaise-based con-coction „ is $4.75. The roll was nicely toasted during a recent visit. For those who dont eat beef, there is the Greenburg(er), made of avocado ($5), and a turkey dog ($4.65), made of turkey sausage. And dont forget the BELT ($4.50) „ thats bacon, lettuce, tomato, fried egg, cheese and Chucks spread on a bun. The restaurant also has craft beer and wine lists. The crinkle-cut fries, made from Yukon Gold potatoes, are crisp and light, and Chuck Burger claims they contain up to 25 percent less fat than average fries. Frozen custards and milk shakes are on the menu, as are Sprecher root beer and Mexican Coca-Cola, popular because it is made with cane sugar, not corn syrup like American-produced Coke. Inside, the place offers counter service „ place your order, take a beeper and pick up your food when the beeper goes off. The windowed space is warm, with lots of wood on the walls and a polished concrete floor that may remind visitors of Chuck Burgers neighbor to the east, Chipotle Grill. Set-ups are decidedly no-nonsense „ sandwiches are served in wax-paper wrappers, the trays are jellyroll pans, perfect for toting all that high-calorie goodness. The place was quiet during a visit on a recent Monday afternoon, but there was a steady stream of customers of all ages. Chuck Burger has no website, but it does have a Facebook page on which it will list specials. Chuck Burger Joint is at Midtown, 4665 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. Phone: 629-5191.„ Flavor Palm Beach: The monthlong discount dining promotion kicks off with an al fresco tasting party on the downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront that benefits the Greater Palm Beach Chapter of the American Red Cross. The kick-off event will feature signature menu items and cocktails from many local restaurants, including Pistache French Bis-tro, The Wine Dive, Longboards, Roxys Pub, Duffys Sports Grill, Don Ramons, Off the Hookah, Mortons The Steakhouse, Ruths Chris Steakhouse, City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill and Cabana Nuevo Latino. There will be music by The String Theory Band, live ice sculpture carving, dance performances by Palm Beach Atlantic Uni-versity and a light show.

Attendance for the kick-off party is free to the public from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with dining tickets at $35 in advance or $40 at At Chuck Burger Joint, the secret is in the grindthe door.

It is the fourth consecutive year the restaurant has been recognized with this accolade in the magazines Restaurant Awards issue. The designation of an Award of ExcellenceŽ is achieved by restaurants whose wine lists offer a carefully chosen selection of the finest quality wines that is a thematic match to the menu in both price and style, Mortons said in a news release. Addition-ally, the menu of restaurants that receive an Award of ExcellenceŽ must offer at least 100 different wine selections.„ Culture & Cocktails: The Palm Beach County Cultural Councils popular series of five one-on-one conversations with cul-tural leaders continues this season at Caf Boulud in The Brazilian Court hotel in Palm Beach.
