Many of the unemployed are professionals, people with college degrees, years of expe-rience and now months look-ing for jobs. The Workforce Alliance in West Palm Beach offers pro-grams and help to professionals and execu-tive-level workers. The Workforce Alliance has two Executive Transition Units. One is at 1951-D Military Trail, West Palm Beach and the other is 951 Yamato Road in Boca Raton. The total traffic during the last program year, July 2010 through June 30, for both was 14,448 job seekers. Workforce Alliance placed 234 of them into professional or executive level positions. Sal-ary level for some was as high as $200,000. One of the worst things when youre between jobs is coping with stress, the pressures of your family, financial situations,Ž Workforce Alliance counselor Judy Dunn says. Our part of Florida is hit hard. The drop in construction, the impact across the board, affected so many, then from there to banking, the mom and pops. We never saw anyone medical come in, but the auxiliary departments, the MRIs, the techs were hit. Starting with housing, this downturn had a huge impact on Palm Beach County, retail, hospitality.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 Andre the green turtle drifted ashore injured and beached himself in our col-lective consciousness. Three weeks after Andre returned to the sea on Aug. 3, his body washed ashore on Hutchinson Island. Marine experts were unable to determine the cause of death. It was a miracle he had survived to return to the ocean. When Andre was found barely alive in June 2010, he had two large holes in his shell, probably caused by boat propel-lers. His spinal cord was exposed. His body was filled with sand and was home to a live crab. His soft tissues were infected. But he seemingly healed, and the 170pound turtle became a poster child in the never-ending war between man and nature. Nature lost this battle, and so did we.Veterinarians at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach had hoped he would return to the sea and help repro-duce his endangered species. He returned to the sea, and well never know whether he mated after his release. But his death was not in vain.With ongoing community support, we will continue our work in education, research and rehabilitation with incred-ible passion,Ž the Marinelife Center said in a statement. We are committed to making sure sea turtles live in an ocean that is free from threats to their survival. The sad and unexpected news of Andres passing reminds us that his plight inspired many people to understand the continued need for ocean conservation.Ž Andre, who spent 13 months in rehab at the Marinelife Center, captivated imagina-tions with his pluck. A lot of turtles that came in in the condition that he did could have given up but he never did,Ž Dr. Nancy Mettee, veterinarian at the Marinelife Center, said at the time of Andres release. Working with Andre, veterinarians learned much about helping turtles to heal. The treatments they used to close the gaping wounds required ingenuity that will be employed to save other turtles. Doctors used a porcine-derived substance to help his soft tissues adhere to his shell. That material, commonly used for breast reconstruction in humans, had never before been used to treat animals. He was a turtle with braces „ orthodontic appliances closed the gaps in his shell. And negative-pressure therapy helped reduce the swelling in his infect-ed tissues. Common household silicon sealed the device to the ridges in Andres carapace. Then at the beginning of August, he was ready for his return to the ocean. That final day at the Marinelife Center, he was scrubbed and measured. His caregivers carried him to the beach of Loggerhead Park. Once there, he lay on the beach and peered around as if to say goodbye. A gentle tide lapped at his shell. Workers carried him into the surf and he began to swim away. A crowd of about 1,500 watched and cheered as he swam away. The speck of waving flippers that was Andre seemed to bid his caregivers good-bye. Then he was gone.At least that memory will live on. Q Andre’s legacy lives on in the healing of other turtlesBY SCOTT SIMMONS____________________ssimmons@” oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOS Andre moves about his tank (left) at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

More than 2,100 people say theyll risk arrest there during the next two weeks. They oppose the Keystone XL pipeline project, designed to carry heavy crude oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. A keystoneŽ in architecture is the stone at the top of an arch that holds the arch together; without it, the structure collapses. By putting their bodies on the line „ as more than 200 have already at the time of this writing „ these practi-tioners of the proud tradition of civil dis-obedience hope to collapse not only the pipeline, but the fossil-fuel dependence that is accelerating disruptive global cli-mate change. Bill McKibben was among those already arrested. He is an environmen-talist and author who founded the group 350.org, named after the estimated safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of 350 ppm (parts per mil-lion „ the planet is currently at 390 ppm). In a call to action to join the protest, McKibben, along with others including journalist Naomi Klein, actor Danny Glover, and NASA scientist James Hansen, wrote the Keystone pipeline is a 1,500-mile fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the continent, a way to make it easier and faster to trigger the final overheating of our planet.Ž The movement to oppose Keystone XL ranges from activists and scientists to indigenous peoples of the threat-ened Canadian plains and boreal forests, where the tar sands are located, to rural farmers and ranchers in the ecologically fragile Sand Hills region of Nebraska, to students and physicians. Asked why the White House protests are taking place while President Barack Obama is away on a family vacation on Marthas Vineyard, McKibben replied: Well be here when he gets back, too. Were staying for two weeks, every day. This is the first real civil disobedience of this scale in the environmental move-ment in ages.Ž Just miles to the east of Marthas Vineyard, and almost exactly 170 years ear-lier, on Nantucket, Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave, abolitionist, journalist and publisher, gave one of his first major addresses before the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society. Douglass is famous for stating one of grass-roots organiz-ings central truths: Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.Ž Demanding change is one thing, while getting change in Washington, D.C., is another, especially with the Republican-controlled House of Representatives hostility to any climate-change legisla-tion. That is why the protests against Keystone XL are happening in front of the White House. President Obama has the power to stop the pipeline. The Canadian corporation behind the proj-ect, TransCanada, has applied for a per-mit from the U.S. State Department to build the pipeline. If the State Depart-ment denies the permit, Keystone XL would be dead. The enormous environ-mental devastation caused by extracting petroleum from the tar sands might still move forward, but without easy access to the refineries and the U.S. market, it would certainly be slowed. TransCanada executives are confident that the U.S. will grant the permit by the end of the year. Republican politicians and the petroleum industry tout the cre-ation of well-paying construction jobs that would come from the project, and even enjoy some union support. In response, two major unions, the Amalgamated Transit Union and the Transport Workers Union, representing more than 300,000 workers, called on the State Department to deny the per-mit. In a joint press release, they said: We need jobs, but not ones based on increasing our reliance on Tar Sands oil. ... Many jobs could also be created in energy conservation, upgrading the grid, maintaining and expanding public trans-portation -jobs that can help us reduce air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and improve energy efficiency.Ž Two Canadian women, indigenous actress Tantoo Cardinal, who starred in Dances With Wolves,Ž and Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in Super-man,Ž were arrested with about 50 others just before the earthquake hit Tuesday. Bill McKibben summed up: It takes more than earthquakes and hurricanes to worry us „ well be out here through Sept. 3. Our hope is to send a Richter 8 tremor through the political system on the day Barack Obama says no to Big Oil and reminds us all why we were so happy when he got elected. The tar sands pipeline is his test.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.Protesters of Big Oil carry on proud traditionThe countrys op-ed pages have been full of condemnations of the dysfunc-tion of American politics, what with all the populist clamor and partisan disagreement. So, a thought experiment: What if we were governed by a sophisticated transnational elite that operated outside of normal political channels as much as possible and, sharing similar values, forged compromises relatively easily? What if the elite were high-minded and visionary? What if they succeeded in doing big thingsŽ? In Europe the past couple of decades, this hasnt been a fanciful hope, its been a reality. A political and financial overclass engineered the adoption of the euro, based on one of the worlds most foolhardy delusions since the fall of the Berlin Wall: that you can have a common currency without a common country. The euro fueled the sovereign debt crisis that has brought Europe to the brink, and threatens to take the American economy down with it. Our double dip may come courtesy of people named Jacques and Wim who were brilliant „ and desperately wrong. As the euro began to become a reality in the 1990s, the chief economist of the German Bundesbank rudely pointed out that there is no example in history of a lasting monetary union that was not linked to one state.Ž But what is history compared with the dream of guys around a conference table sipping Evian? In his excellent primer on the euro crash, Bust,Ž Matthew Lynn notes that there were two answers to this objec-tion. One was that the euro would be the forerunner to a unified Europe „ or create the currency first, worry about the nation later (details, details). The other was that Europe was an opti-mal currency area,Ž where economic efficiency would be served by a single cross-border currency. As the euro expanded to the periphery of Europe, the currency area got steadily less optimal. The euro foun-dered on differences of national culture and interests. The Swabian housewife „ once invoked by German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a symbol of austere common sense „ does not live in Ath-ens. She never will. The euro nonetheless made it possible for countries like Greece and Por-tugal to borrow at essentially the same low rates as Germany under the illu-sion that they were just as safe. Its one thing for Germany to borrow at German rates, since fiscal tough-mindedness is practically the countrys state religion. Its quite another for Greece, with an ingrained habit of spending what it doesnt have. True to form, Greece lied about its fiscal indicators to get accepted into the euro, and kept right on lying once it joined the currency. Its national motto could be a paraphrase of the famous Animal HouseŽ line: You messed up, you trusted us.Ž The low costs of borrowing in countries like Greece spurred massive bing-es by consumers and government. The bubble felt good on the way up, but its been brutal on the way down, and Europe „ which is to say Germany „ is ultimately on the hook for all the unsus-tainable debt. The handiwork of the splendidly effective euro-crats should be undone. Greece is a basket-case country. It deserves a basket-case currency. Bring back the drachma. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Euro-crats set us all up for failure t w f f amy GOODMAN Special to Florida Weekly O rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O

WHY DO I HEAR… BUT NOT UNDERSTAND? Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer Until recently, there was no practical way to identify dead regions of hearing cells in the ear. However, a new British-developed procedure using standard test equipment now allows for identi“ -cation of dead hearing cell regions. The study suggests that the presence or absence of dead regions may have serious implica-tions in the “ tting of hearing aids.This research reveals that amplifying dead cells is a mistake which will result in poorer speech understanding in noise. A new type of digital programmable microcircuit is now available using nanoScience technology that can be programmed to bypass the dead cells. As a result, the patients usable hearing cells receive ampli“ cation, thereby improving speech understanding in noise.We are employing a like method in our diagnostic sound booths using a sound “ eld speech in noise procedure,Ž said Dr. Mel Grant of Audiology & Speech Pathology. This test simulates hearing in a noisy crowd.

The department is one of 146 agencies to achieve Internationally Accred-ited Agency status with the Center for Public Safety Excellence Inc., and says it is the only accredited department in Palm Beach County, and one of only 16 accredited agencies in Florida. The Commission on Fire Accreditation International assists fire and emergency services agencies around the world in achieving excellence through self-assess-ment and accreditation in order to pro-vide continuous quality improvement and the enhancement of service delivery to their communities. The CFAI process is voluntary, and provides an agency with an improvement model to assess their service delivery and performance internally and then works with a team of peers from other agencies to evaluate their completed self-assessment. Fire Chief Peter T. Bergel said in a statement that the agencys achievement of Accredited Agency status demonstrates the commitment of the agency to provide the highest quality of service to our com-munity.Ž Chief Bergel also said, We have also been able to use the Commission on Fire Accreditation Internationals process as a proactive mechanism to plan for the future of this agency and locate areas where we can improve on the quality of the services we provide.Ž The reaccreditation process is a fiveyear continuous process. To qualify for reaccreditation, there were 44 critical criteria that must be met, in addition to 253 performance indicators. These included response times, community risk analysis and strategic planning. Q The Parent-Child Center recently accepted a cash award of $25,000 from Chase in a check presentation at the Riviera Beach office Parent-Child Center headquarters. The center participated in the nationwide Chase Community Giving campaign, raising operating funds and creating aware-ness throughout the community about the significance of valuable community pro-grams that serve more than 8,000 Palm Beach County children each year. Parent-Child Center, Inc. won the $25,000 by shar-ing its good work and soliciting votes on Facebook. The Parent-Child Center, a member of the Community Partnership Group, sub-mitted a program helping infants and chil-dren up to the age of 5 by mobilizing its social media networks to support the proj-ect mission and click in their votes.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 NEWS A9 the plow. And most of them did it all without electricity or running water. Or medical care to tend their injuries or legislation to protect their rights. Those who produce should have, but we know that those who produce the most „ that is, those who work hardest, and at the most difficult and most menial tasks, have the least,Ž mused labor activist Eugene V. Debs. And it was because of activists like Mr. Debs and organizers like Joe Hill, memo-rialized in song alive as you and me,Ž that working folks could gain recognition „ or at least fair pay „ for their labor. Restaurateur Dean Lavallee sees the holiday as an opportunity to recognize our accomplishments. We are what we do, not what we say. All around us is evidence of what weve done,Ž says Mr. Lavallee, founder of Park Avenue BBQ & Grille. By hammer and hand all arts do stand,Ž he says, quoting the old blacksmithing motto. Its up to each of us to leave our own little mark in our own little way.Ž Katie Deits, executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter, agrees. As an art student, I read a biography about Georgia OKeeffe, where she was quoted as saying that every job you do is a portrait of yourself,Ž she says. From my parents, my teachers and my art idols, I have been influenced to work hard, do my best, and believe that I can do what I make my mind up to do; however, I also believe in enjoying and having fun at whatever I do.Ž Ms. Deits grew up in West Palm Beach and sold candies, then later worked at Burdines in downtown West Palm Beach. My parents raised me with a very strong work ethic; in fact, in our house-hold one of the worst names that you could be called was lazy. Mom and Dad emphasized that if you took on a job, you should do it well and efficiently,Ž she says. My mother worked long hours at Pratt and Whitney, so my job as a teenager was to keep the house clean and do the dishes. I think that the sense that we, as a fam-ily, were a team working at having a nice home made me feel responsible and an important member of the team.Ž It also is a day to recognize the entrepreneurs among us. Its a day to remember both the struggles and successes of the American business owner,Ž says Richard Goldberg, owner of Sir Speedy Printing in Tequesta. Mr. Goldberg says he grew up hearing his father fretting over his own retail store. But his dad had a set of guiding principles: Diligence, honesty, the Golden Rule and hard work.Ž He says following those ideals led his dad to success and enabled him to be successful at Sir Speedy. It also is a time to look on your career with gratitude. I know so many people who are unemployed or underemployed or struggling and not making ends meet, so Labor Day makes me stop and think about how lucky I am to have my own business,Ž says Diane Reuschel, owner of Sustained Style for the Home, a Palm Beach Gardens con-signment business that also specializes in green products. And perhaps in the future bring some employment to other people.Ž How so?That really was what the vision was at the beginning,Ž Ms. Reuschel says. There were these people I knew who had a great understanding and were great at sales and I wanted them to have a place that was safe and enjoyable to work.Ž It also reminds us that others need a helping hand. Labor Day is a time to reflect on our collective ability to support each other in good and bad times,Ž says John Couris, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. Jan Davisson, a marketing consultant and radio personality, agrees. The critical need in our nation is to reeducate these workers to keep our nation productive,Ž she says. Other people see Labor Day as a symbolic end to summer. It still marks the end of summer fun for me,Ž says Tricia Trimble, managing director of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, who grew up in Key Biscayne and summered in Maine. The end of summer bliss, full of lobster and clambakes, and the begin-ning of all the seriousness of returning to school.Ž For the fashion-conscious Mrs. Trimble, it marks a new beginning, too, the begin-ning of the fashion season,Ž adding I still want to put away my white shoes and summer clothes the next day.Ž And its with anticipation that Tammy Kilburn and Federico Gaudino, owners of Romeo-n-Julie ttes Caffe, await the holiday. In our business, it also means that we are one day closer to seeing all of our sea-sonal friends,Ž says Ms. Kilburn. And for a business, that is one opportunity to see change, to make a difference, whether its with charity or the day-to-day. Sometimes what we do is so much bigger than us,Ž says Mr. Lavallee. Our work gets noticed by so many more people than we understand. Our work really affects a lot of people beyond our own sphere.Ž About that, he is pragmatic. I like to know people are enjoying pork sandwich-es though I may never meet them.Ž Says the ArtCenters Ms. Deits:I realize that the holiday was invented to appease the labor unions, but I would prefer to think of it as a celebration of the work ethic of all Americans.Ž Q LABORFrom page 1 John CourisQ First Real Job: Patient Transporter (Orderly) Q Current Job: President and CEO, Jupiter Medical CenterQ What does Labor Day mean to me: It’s an opportunity to celebrate the American spirit of hard work and perseverance.

These were the blue-collar defense plant workers. Although many of them wanted to be in the service, they were considered critical workers on the home front. They were honored on Labor Day. So much emphasis is placed on everyone going to college; however, the critical need in our nation is to re-educate these workers to keep our nation productive.Katie DeitsNorth Palm BeachQ First Job: When I was 6, I started selling “The World’s Finest Chocolate Bars” to send myself to church camp, and then, when I was 7 and 8 years sold enough cookies and candy to go to Girl Scout and YMCA camps for a month. My mother used to practice with me; she would raise all the objections, which I would have to overcome in my sales pitch. When I was 13, and couldn’t work of cially yet, I wrapped Christmas packages at Henry’s Drugstore on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach in exchange for cosmetics and perfume samples. However, my rst real job was when I was 15. I dressed up in a skirt suit and jacket and rode the city bus downtown to my job at Burdines Department Store, which was at the northwest corner of Dixie Highway and Clematis Street. Everyone shopped at Burdines, and I felt very grown up running the cash register, helping custom-ers, arranging stock and riding the escalator. Q Current Job: I am fortunate to be the executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum & School of Art in Tequesta. As a not-for-pro t organi-zation, we make a real difference in the community by offering stimulating art classes to people of all ages from toddlers to seniors, those who have never taken an art class to professional artists, people with special needs, such as autism, teens preparing for college entrance, as well as summer and winter ArtCamps. We help to enrich peoples’ lives with art, and it is a thrill to bring the joy of art to others.Q What Labor Day means to me: In the 1930s, Unitarian minister L.P. Jacks wrote, “A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine whether he is work-ing or playing. To himself he always seems to be doing both. Enough for him that he does it well.”Those are words to live and work by, don’t you think?Richard GoldbergPalm Beach GardensQ First Job: My father’s retail store Q Current Job: Owner of Sir Speedy Printing in TequestaQ What Labor Day means to me: It’s a day to remember both the struggles and successes of the American business owner. Coming from a family business, I recall my childhood of overhearing my father worrying about his little retail store — what was the future going to bring; changing direction of the marketplace; buying and selling merchandise; marketing; pro tability and such. He worked 24/7 before we even used that expression. My mother’s dining room table was his “of ce.” And his business started to grow, blossom and then expode! Although he sold his business 25 years ago, the business plan he established (again, before we used the words “business plan”) is still in force today by the acquir-ing company. His secrets? Diligence, honesty, the “Golden Rule” and hard work. These were the rules to his success and the same rules I use to grow my business today. Thanks, Pop. I love you.

In our busi-ness, it also means that we are one day closer to seeing all of our seasonal friends.Dean LavalleeJupiterQ First Job: I was dishwasher at Lums (in West Palm Beach) at 14 years old. It was one of the best jobs I ever had. At 14, I had my own little dish room. I was a fully functional individual at 14. I had a room, with a window where they’d pass the dishes. I was the rst male waiter.Q Current Job: Founder/owner of Park Avenue BBQ & GrilleQ What Labor Day means to me: Our work gets noticed by so many more pepole than we under-stand.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 NEWS A11 Asked by phone for the best time to meet, David Johnson says, Wait, let me look at my schedule.Ž Nearly anyone among than 14.1 million men and women now out of work in America … and the more than 981,000 jobless as of June in Florida … would get the joke. The good news is, your time is your own. The bad news is, none of it includes a job or an income. What has gone wrong, Mr. Johnson wonders, with working in America? In his personal dossier, Mr. Johnson, of West Palm Beach, seems an especially wrenching case: the skilled telecommunications professional, the people person, the problem-solver, who somehow missed the latest shift in the corporate techno-bubble. He grew up on a farm in central Illinois, played football and baseball, wres-tled and ran cross-country and track. From 1988 to 1995, he was a captain in the U.S. Army, served as a platoon leader, a brigade adjutant and an opera-tions officer. Income was regular, and so was in-coming.Ž His country gave him, he says, an all-expenses-paid vacation to Iraq.Ž He stood up, went over, shared and endured the conditions, took the risks. At one point, in his words, he tore up the muscles in my right leg.Ž The leg was slow to heal. He also earned his Expert Infantry Badge and Ranger tab and qualified as an Air Assault Jump Master and in nuclear-biological defense. In his transition back to civil-ian life, employers seemed to like him. At age 47, Mr. John-son has spent most of his adult civilian life working in what might seem Ameri-cas hottest market, telecommunica-tions. Digital, cellu-lar, wireless phone and Internet con-nections, a lot of face-to-face service. As of a year ago April, after a laudable beginning with AT&T, he was in his sev-enth year in Palm Beach County as an account development representative for T-Mobile in storefronts and kiosks. Wed be the liaison,Ž he says, make sure they had their stuff properly merchandised, that their people were trained, they knew what the offers were so that when theyre talking to you as the customer they represented our brand as well as possible, that theyd get sales.Ž Twice he had won com-pany awards for being among the best employees in the nation. Then, one spring afternoon, his boss summoned him to the office and told him he was no longer needed. Cost-cut-ting measure. Other supervisors were dismissed, too. Many came back simply as sales reps, the people they used to oversee. As a successful store manager and supervisor, Mr. Johnson couldnt imag-ine doing that. So he has been drafted into the army of job-seekers. Most who know him say they dont understand why he hasnt been snapped up. Mr. Johnson and his wife had expected her parents to come over from the Philippines. This was 2001, and the cataclysm of 9/11 and its aftermath can-celed the trip. After their daughter was born, Plan A had been having them take care of her while they worked. Plan B, Mr. Johnson says, was for either him or his wife to stay home. His wife was working as a nurse three days a week, so her husband took home duty. I will tell any person out there,Ž Mr. Johnson says, that being the stay-at-home parent is a lot harder, and you should actually give that person a lot more respect and love. And I do know why women walk around with their hips stuck out, because my daughter didnt want to let go of me the entire year. So Im holding her on the hip. You figure out how to do a lot of things one-handed.Ž Being jobless, he says, has also given him a chance to explore karate through the Jupiter Community Center and a deeper involvement with the call com-mittee at his church, searching for a new pastor. Yeah, I was angry at first,Ž he says, but after a little bit I was actually relieved, because I realized how much more time I was putting into the job than I was into my relationship. And the only reason, really, why we have a job is to take care of the lifestyle, to be with the person that you want to be with. So the time has helped me focus on what are the important things in my life. I dont necessarily want to have the highest paying job out there that will take me away from my family. I DO need a job! My wife is working, which helps a lot, but weve completely eliminated our savings through this last whole year. Its gone. And our second mortgage, the bank wont even assist us with adjusting the interest rate, which would help us handle it. Were contem-plating selling the house. We have not taken a vacation. There is no money for that. Period. We dont go out and buy, say, clothes. You make sure the clothes you have are good, and you keep em good.Ž His day is scheduled. Ill pick up my daughter at 2 oclock,Ž he says, and work with her on her homework, maybe take her to the library, and Ill apply for some more positions. Ill research; tailor my resume to fit what they need.Ž Just then his cell phone rings. His wife is calling. Im just about done talk-ing to the reporters at the Starbucks,Ž he says. I love you. See you soon.Ž On his phone, he notes, theres an application, Google Sky, and his daugh-ter went on it looking for constellations. I go, Thats a pretty big word there young lady. What does that word mean? She says, A group of stars. I was, like, WOW. Thats right! Good job! I dont want her to use words that she doesnt understand.Ž Hes hoping that she doesnt learn the full meaning of unemployment.Ž Hes still bewildered by it, himself. Regard-less, he says, he and his family will keep looking up. Q Turn, turn, turn, everything in its season. F or Daniel C asey, this season of his unemployment is bleak and busy. He wishes the season were shorter. He is working to turn it around. Home is where Mr. Casey turns for solace. In the year since he was laid off from his con-struction job with one of Delray Beachs top local builders, its also where hes trying to turn down the outflow of money and turn his own enterprise into food for his family and prospects for a new career. He has learned a les-son here, too, in the single-story home he and his wife, Ana, bought 15 years ago along a canal on a curving court in Boynton Beach. You have to go back to basics,Ž he says. Energy costs? We went from 78 bucks a month to, literally, as close to zero as we can get. I walk around and flip off switches and unplug things I would usually never give thought to.Ž The housing downturn in Florida has hit the construction industry and relat-ed businesses especially hard. He has worked for big outfits, Oriole Homes, Pulte Homes, and as a superintendent, lead superintendent, project manager. He also ended up working two years at Home Depot. He has seen the industrys high ceiling cave in. Hard-hit is not the word,Ž Mr. Casey says. Done, fin-ished is the word. Even the people who are employed by builders are basi-cally twiddling their thumbs, looking for stuff to do.Ž Like many thrown back into the job-seeker pool, Mr. Casey has reinvented himself, more than once. His life, in fact, has demanded a series of changes, some springing from his own youthful misad-ventures, some from market and social forces beyond his control. He is 50 years old. I started working construction when I was 15, in Oklahoma,Ž he says. I got up every morning before the crack of dawn, and I went to work and I car-ried 5-gallon buckets, filled, four at a time for hours, for blocks and I hand sanded and painted and breathed in fumes that would knock a horse down in a minute. Eventually I learned how to build cabinets, stain them, finish them and put finish trim everywhere and hang doors and windows, and before long I was building houses, and not long after that, I was managing the building process of small neighborhoods and communities. You know? So I believe in that.Ž He went on to get his high-school equivalency degree (G.E.D.), to the delight of his family, and he shows the American zeal for enterprise. In recent months he has labored to turn a photography hobby into a business, investing in high-end equipment, cam-eras, editing, post-production, lighting, setting up a photo studio in the family home and scrambling after prospects, online and out-and-about. He has his own business website (pixcasey.com) and gets occasional photo gigs at events such as, weddings and graduations. Hes glad to show off his portfolio. So far, though, the sh utter on the business has been more closed than open. The economys gotten so poor that people dont want to pay professional photog-raphers their fee,Ž he says. Theyll call a friend or hand out little cameras or drive em down to literally nothing, not knowing what theyre getting into. It just totally slaps me and every profes-sional photographer scratching out a living in the face.Ž What that has meant for the family is cost-cutting and cutbacks. Trimming back on lifestyle sounds fine, he says, until you end up doing it. He doesnt see anyone in Congress scrimping on their own comforts. Mr. Casey says that one of his best moves was marrying Ana, when he was running four fine-art galleries he co-owned with his father in California. The first Gulf War hit, the economy slumped, and he lost $75,000, he says, in four years. Ana was a sav-ing grace. They moved to Florida, later, traveling to work art shows in a trailer. Im blessed that she has a job,Ž he says. She works at the Legal Aid Society. She doesnt make a great salary, but the work is good. Shes a Human Resources generalist, and we talk about ability and markets and peoples struggles, being taken advantage of by their employers. Why are they not paying them? She has that conversation every day.Ž Its really gotten so bad financially,Ž he says, that in order to eat healthy, I have to grow our food, you know? We have to almost be self-sustainable. Ive been very successful at providing almost every vegetable that we used to buy, which eliminated a lot need for shopping. When we DO shop, I mean, its incredible, we go to Costco, buy in bulk, and we take the coupons. Im the coupons guy. My mom taught me about that, getting your buck to stretch more.Ž He would love to manage a hydro-ponic greenhouse. For now, he focuses on another kind of green. I saved $1,000 yesterday,Ž he says. I called my insurance office about the homeowners insurance. I cut out the insurance on the contents of our house.Ž Q Yeah, I was angry at first I have to grow our own foodDAVID JOHNSON’S STORY DANIEL CASEY’S STORYBY TIM NORRIStnorris@” oridaweekly.com BY TIM NORRIStnorris@” oridaweekly.com JOHNSON CASEY

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 The signs had been there all along but she kept making excuses. Now Carol was forced to face the fact that shed been in denial for a very long time. She adored her parents and had been unwilling to admit to herself that they were declining. She couldnt help but go back to the afternoon her mother had called her in tears. Her father couldnt remember where hed parked the car in the Costco lot. The two of them had been exhausted and dis-traught until a security vehicle pulled up to help them. When Carol (not her real name) expressed concerns at the time, her parents had minimized the whole thing and said she was over-reacting. Carol realized now that at the time, she was just as happy to let the whole thing go. Nor had she been overly worried that her father would ask the same questions repeatedly. Heck, Carol misplaced her car keys more times than she was willing to admit, so there shouldnt be cause for concern just yet. Lately, there had been more and more concerning incidents. Sometimes shed look at her parents, her eyes welling with tears, as she realized things would never be the same. She knew in her heart they could no longer live without assistance. She was worried sick how to broach this with them. Her parents were so proud and would hate to be a burden. Throughout the years, her father had made multiple statements of the ilk that hed rather be shot than live in a nursing home. She knew he would be devastated if she intimated that she didnt think he was capable. The time had come to consult with her siblings to consider the best way to approach this delicate situation. As much as we try to prepare ourselves for the day our parents are no longer able and robust, we may still find ourselves in disbelief when we suddenly realize that they may have become frail or not able to sufficiently care for themselves. And, of course, our parents may find it excruciatingly painful to face the inevita-bility of their own mortality. They may not want to worry us and may deny what is actually going on to minimize the extent of their limitations. Our parents have very likely enjoyed their roles as matriarch and patriarch of the extended family and have been accus-tomed to their independence. They may need time to grieve the loss of the roles that may have given them so much gratification and esteem. Even if they havent verbalized their con-cerns, most older folks have spent many waking hours ruminating about what lies ahead. They may be embarrassed by their lim-its and wracked with anxiety and fear about the future. They may envision horrors of physical impairment, financial ruin or gut-wrenching loneliness. They may worry how their affairs will be handled should they become impaired. It helps to regularly consider matters from our parents perspec-tive so we can allow them to maintain their pride when we broach painful topics. There may also be a strong grieving process that the adult children will go through. It may feel like a cruel trick of fate to rob them of the rich emotional enjoyment (and the com-fort of being able to confide in) the other person who is still physically present, but no longer able to relate the same. Finding new ways to appreciate this compromised relationship will be the challenge. Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross has famously described the stages of mourning that most people go through upon the serious illness or impending death of a loved one „denial, anger, bargaining, depression and, finally, acceptance. People who are adjust-ing to the physical and emotional decline of a parent may struggle through the very same steps. Those who have had troubled relationships with their parents may find this grieving process complicated by layers of resentment, anger or guilt. We must be well aware that older people may take offense at the littlest things and may have radars up ready to take umbrage as we delicately ask them to consider assistance in the house or to give up the car keys. They may be acutely sensitive to feeling demeaned or diminished if they detect the whiff of a patronizing attitude. If we reach out for their competence as we speak, our conversations are more likely to respect their dignity. The decision to broach the issue of driving is one of the most sensitive topics of all. Taking away the car keys is symbolic for many that they have lost their integrity and independence. They may stubbornly hold onto this privilege long past the point of safety, because giving in may be the last defeat. When there are delicate or polar-izing issues to address, a physician who knows your parent well may be a source of objectivity, comfort and support. Reaching out to our loved ones when they are still able to rationally plan for the future, and including them in planning dis-cussions is important. Letting them know you will listen to their anxieties and will support them in finding solutions should calm them tremendously. They may need ample time to adjust to their limitations so if possible, it may help to put supports in place, in stages, to ensure the older indi-viduals sense of autonomy. If the extended family has had frank discussions through-out, there could be contingencies in place should a medical emergency arise. Some families find the guidance and support of an experienced geriatric care man-ager to be extremely valuable. This person should be able to objectively help the fam-ily evaluate what is needed and hopefully offer a calm, balanced perspective. In addi-tion, they should be knowledgeable about available services and may offer options not previously considered. There are also many sources of information offered by government and social service agencies. We must remind ourselves, at all times, that this stage of life can be emotionally and physically exhausting. It will make a huge difference if we reach out for as many supports as we can to bolster our strength as we face these challenges.

This rediscovery of job loss as a pressing issue comes after what most Americans would agree was a shameful episode of histrionic behavior by elected leaders who unnecessarily pushed the country toward the edge of another economic free fall ... and this at a time when 25 million Americans are lost and buried in the economic doldrums of a ter-rible recession. In the final hours of this suicidal march toward the nations default, the legislative dysfunction of Congress was in full display. During the litany of sound bites, someone mentioned in passing the now-deceased Robert Byrd, a U.S. Senator and Democrat from West Virginia who was the longest serving member in the history of Senate and the U.S. Congress. Byrd was deeply respected by his colleagues as the Senates historian and was also known for his passion and high regard of the U.S. Constitution, which he gave out copiously in a pocketbook version during his career. The invocation of Byrds memory was an inference to the shocking erosion during the Congres-sional debates of the grand tradition, decorum and civil-ity of what Byrd regarded as one of the worlds greatest deliberative bodies; that, and the cynical, careless dispatch with which his beloved U.S. Constitution and its amendment was thrown into the noxious bargaining as if it were a Word document and a little rewrite was no big deal. Sen. Byrd would have thought it was a very big deal. He took the opportunity on many occasions to lecture his Senate colleagues about what a remarkable instrument of democracy its achievement represented to this country and the world. His passionate tenacity on the subject of the Constitution and his lengthy stay in those marbled halls earned him respect from his colleagues on both sides of the aisles as the Dean of the Senate.Ž Senator Mitch McConnell of Ken-tucky said ƒ (Byrd) combined a devotion to the U.S. Constitution with a deep learn-ing of history to defend the interests of his state and the traditions of the Senate. We will remember him for his fighters spirit, his abiding faith, and for the many times he recalled the Senate to its purposes.Ž Byrd was far from perfect. For example, the racist views he espoused early in his career he later recognized as an indelible stain on his lifelong record of accomplish-ments. Over the course of his lifetime, the intellectual capacity and willingness to engage in soul-searching helped Byrd overcome the limitations he recognized in himself. A more inclusive vision of human-ity only served to deepen his compelling vision of democracy. Humility in our pub-lic servants can thus be a highly desirable trait. The absence of someone with the stature of Byrd to call the Senate to its purposeŽ is the nations loss. Even had we had another Senator Byrd, there were far too few oth-ers with a talent for listening. Almost no one thinks in retrospect that the nation was well served by the final result of Con-gress sausage-making. Tough issues are being too easily scripted by political fops as street theatre, with little intellectual energy devoted to informed understanding and enlightenment for broad benefit to an anxious nation. The country is in trouble and the challenges require, as Byrd might have stated it, reasoning with those with whom we disagree. As Washington fiddles on, foundations, businesses, community leaders and public officials are talking about how the high rates of unemployment are laying waste to our communities. Philanthropy has a long history of engagement and investment in job creation and workforce development in partnership with the public and private sector. But charitable giving cannot and will never be a substitute of government by and for the people. There must be a national commitment to resurrect economic opportunity for all Americans or we risk the consequence of sacrificing many millions more to the ravages of poverty. This is a time for the ascendancy of an attitude in service to country instead of the narcissism of in service to self. Philanthropy is challenged now more than ever to focus on things we can do better, together, and more of, that will help create jobs in this country. I think Senator Byrd would have appreciated the higher calling and integrity of purpose that quest demands.

Teach your children to avoid fast or jerky movements around dogs, since these may trigger predatory behavior.„ Be a tree when a threatening dog approaches, standing straight with feet together, fists under the neck and elbows into the chest. Teach your children to make no eye contact, since some dogs view eye contact as a challenge. Running is a normal response to danger, but its the worst possible thing to do around a dog, because it triggers the animals instinct to chase and bite. Many dogs will just sniff and leave. Teach your chil-dren to stay still until the animal walks away, and then back away sl owly out of the area.„ FeedŽ the dog a jacket or backpack if attacked, or use a bike to block the dog. These strategies may keep an attacking dogs teeth from connecting with flesh. „ Act like a log if knocked down: face down, legs together, curled into a ball with fists covering the back of the neck and fore-arms over the ears. This position protects vital areas and can keep an attack from turning fatal. Role-play these lessons with your child until they are ingrained. They may save your childs life. Discuss safe behavior with your children and role-play how to approach dogs, when not to approach, and what to do if con-fronted or attacked.

Q Safety around dogs is a necessary lesson for all school-age childrenral to a behaviorist who can help you reha-bilitate your pet. Dont put this off: Your dog is a danger, and your own family is at risk. Of course, you cant control what other people do with their animals. Thats why you have to make sure your children know how to behave around dogs to protect themselves. Heres what everyone should know, and what parents need to teach their children: „ Never approach a loose dog, even if he seems friendly. Dogs who are confined in yards, and especially those dogs on chains, should also be avoided. Many are very seri-ous about protecting their turf. If the dog is with his owner, children should always ask permission before petting him and then begin by offering him the back of a hand for a sniff. Further, they should pat the dog on the neck or chest. The dog may interpret a pat on the head from above as a gesture of Hardly a day goes by when there isnt a news story about a dog attack somewhere. When school starts, children may become especially vulnerable, walking and biking through their neighborhoods to class. And thats why every fall I write about safety around dogs. To be fair, dogs arent the biggest risk that children face growing up. Organized sports, for example, are 10 times more likely to result in a childs trip to the emergency room than are dogs. And although in most cases the dog involved in a serious attack is the familys own, its also true that many neighborhoods are not safe for walking or biking because of a dog. These animals are accidents wait-ing to happen because their owners either dont know or dont care that their dogs are a public menace. The experts say the signs of trouble are usually there long before a dog attacks. The dog is typically young, male and unneu-tered. He is usually unsocialized „ a back-yard dog with little to no interaction with the family. He is often inadvertently trained to be vicious by being kept full-time on a chain or in a small kennel run.Is there a dog like this in your neighborhood „ or in your own yard? If its the latter, call your veterinarian and arrange for your pet to be neutered, and then ask for a refer-PET TALES Canine cautions Dogs who are chained for life are especially at risk for biting because they often are un-dersocialized and may become territorial.BY GINA SPADAFORI _______________________________Special to Florida Weekly Pets of the Week >> Doogie is a 1-year-old neutered male pit bull.

Those devices, it said, contain dangerously high levels of phthalatesŽ and other plastics that can cause infertility and hormone imbalances. The party called for sex-toy regulation that is at least as strong as the regulation of childrens toys. This is a clear case where making something environmentally friendly works for us,Ž said Lt. Col. Jeff Woods, the U.S. Armys product manager for small-caliber ammunition. He told Mili-tary.com in May that new steel-core 5.56mm cartridges not only penetrateŽ (kill) more effectively, but are less envi-ronmentally toxic than current lead-core ammo. Judge Giuseppe Gargarella has scheduled trial for later this month in LAquila, Italy, for seven members of Italys national commission on disaster risks who (though supposedly experts) failed to warn of the severity of the April 2009 central-Italy earthquake that killed 300 people. Judge Gargarella said the seven had given contradictory informa-tionŽ and must stand trial for manslaugh-ter. (One commission member had even recommended a high-end red wine that citizens should sip as they ignore small tremors „ which turned into a 6.3 mag-nitude quake.) The veterans support organization Home for Our Troops had recently start-ed to build a 2,700-square-foot house in Augusta, Ga., to ease life for Army Sgt. 1st Class Sean Gittens, who had suffered concussive head injuries in Afghanistan and is partially paralyzed. However, in June, the Knob Hill Property Owners Association, which had provisionally approved the design, changed its mind. The problem is,Ž one association mem-ber told the Augusta Chronicle, there are 5,000-square-foot homes all the way up and down the streetŽ and that such a small house would bring down property values. It just doesnt fit.Ž Q The Pervo-American communityFirst Things First: Alan Buckley, 44, on holiday from Cheshire, England, was arrest-ed in Orlando in June and charged with taking upskirt photographs of a woman at a Target store.

Q A growing number of companies are f orgoing conventional workers compensation coverage in exchange for a pay-as-you-go plan. This flexible model used to be the exclusive territory of carriers in the low-risk categories like administrative personnel and inside sales, but no more. The trend is picking up speed as companies in every sector take note of the distinct advantages these premium payment plans offer. But wise professionals dont choose insurance coverage strategies based just on trends. Other factors play a role as well. Here are how these plans work and why theyve recently become so popular.The ABCs of Workers’ Compensation Coverage It helps to first understand how conventional workers compensation insur-ance works in order to understand the pros and cons of pay-as-you-go. Standard coverage typically requires that a business owner make an upfront deposit based on an estimation of annu-al gross wages. The company submits quarterly data to the insurer, who cal-culates the bills and collects its fees. Because the whole system runs on estimates, an end-of-year audit is required to reconcile all the estimates with reality. If the deposit and quarterly payments dont cover the final total, the company must make up the differ-ence with a lump sum. Conversely, if the payments and deposit went further than expected, the overpaid balance simply rolls into next years account. How Does Pay-As-You-Go Coverage Work?Its no wonder that todays leaner, cash-conscious businesses are increas-ingly opting for pay-as-you-go cover-age. In contrast to the older models lump sums and annual finger-crossing, pay-as-you-go requires no initial depos-it and no audit anxiety. That frees up energy and capital for other things. In lieu of estimates and quarterly bills, a company can submit data from each payroll to be debited for actual wages. This accurate, real-time system keeps surprises to a minimum. The streamlined process requires much less manpower to execute „ which also translates into savings. Automated payments can be funneled simply into any number of useful data reports. The system includes a built-in transparency protection; its easy to cross-reference payroll reports with insurance premiums to verify their accuracy. There are two ways to handle debits. Either the payroll company submits information to the insurance carrier, who debits the account, or the payroll company deducts the insurance premi-ums alongside the deductions for taxes, direct deposits, and the like. On either path, pay-as-you-go plans leave more cash in the coffers for day-to-day business operations and eliminate the unpredictability of conventional plans„advantages that are most impor-tant in small businesses that really feel the crunch in these areas. Businesses whose payrolls fluctuate throughout the year are also prime candidates to benefit from switching to a pay-as-you-go model, which can better accommo-date seasonal ups and downs. But even large companies appreciate the smart manipulation of cash flow „ especially in uncertain economic times. Pay-as-you-go arrangements are only permitted for companies that outsource payroll rather than handle it internally, and the payroll firm must be bonded and insured and have an agreement in place with the insurance carrier. Theres little downside associated with the pay-as-you-go workers com-pensation model, although its wise to plan carefully. Changing providers mid-stream, for example, can cost you, because your account will probably revert to the conventional installment-based system until your policy renews. Ask your broker so you know upfront how the transition will work. Should You Keep Traditions Alive?Truth be told, the benefits of traditional coverage are primarily reserved for the carriers themselves, who collect the deposits upfront and continue to come out ahead. For everyone else, the technology that has brought pay-as-you-go premiums into vogue deserves a round of applause. This newly popular form of workers compensation insur-ance is a valuable tool in keeping com-panies quick and lean. The Future of Workers’ Compensa-tionThe real-time data required for payas-you-go was tougher to come by when paper trails ran the show. Now that virtually every business transac-tion is computerized, making use of up-to-the-minute numbers is a snap. There seems to be nothing but praise for this trend, so why have so few business owners heard about these packages before? Most people dont know pay-as-you-go is an option because theres been no reason for the carriers to publicize it. The pay-roll and human resources firms that frequently manage these processes are not always champions of com-municating industry trends to their clients. But as more companies suc-cessfully adopt the practice, the good news continues to catch on with new customers. The carriers who dont yet offer these payment plans will soon be required to do so based simply on market demand. With all the advantages of pay-as-you-go, its inevitable that this option will gradually replace conventional premi-um payment models as the norm. Ask your payroll and human resources firm or insurance carrier for more details on how pay-as-you-go workers compensation premiums can work for you.

KITCHEN & BATH SHOWROOM FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 BUSINESS A17 MONEY & INVESTINGBad as it is here, Europe’s financial crisis is worseAs hard as it is to imagine, the U.S.s economic woes pale in comparison to European Unions nightmarish prob-lems, which have the potential to turn catastrophic. The U.S. subprime crisis and its economic destruction of the past two years is not over, as the U.S. seems ready to lapse into a second recession. Yes, the U.S. might face many more years of very high unemployment and subpar growth; further stock market declines and con-tinued extreme volatility might be on the horizon. But as bad as we have it, the U.S. does not face some of Europes challenges. The brunt of the EUs solution will fall hard on the Germans as they have money and they have run their country with fiscal integrity. All eyes are on Germany as it plays a critical role in the EUs debt restructuring. The ever-so-complicated EU debtrestructuring story could become totally unmanageable (and therefore catastrophic) in that Germanys courts might find the recent actions of the European Central Bank to be unconsti-tutional. In short, the ECB has been working hard to prevent default contagion over the past 24 months by, in part, purchasing a lot of Portugals, Italys, Greeces and Spains debt ($110 billion). Future solutions involve more of the same and/or issuance of Eurobonds guaranteed by the member states. Pre-sented to Germanys constitutional court is the claim that the EU Treaty does not allow the ECB to buy the bonds/loans of individual states. A ver-dict is expected on or about Sept. 7. Beyond the courts impending decision (which seemingly could clearly cripple the ECBs efforts to save the EU), various German government leaders are stirring a storm of debate about the ECB pur-chases of debt i.e. the issue is also being tried in the court of public opinion. German President Christian Wulff has accused the European Central Bank of violating its treaty mandate with the mass purchase of southern Euro-pean bondsŽ headlined a column in the UKs Aug. 24 edition of the Telegraph. Further, the German Central Bank has equally harsh words ... in its monthly report. The (Bundesbank) slammed the ECBs bond purchases and also warned that the EUs broader bail-out machin-ery violates EU treaties and lacks dem-ocratic legitimacy.Ž But the debate took an interesting twist when the German Labor Minister logically proposed using gold reserves and state industry stakes as security for aid.Ž (Source: Reuters, Stephen Brown, Aug. 23). Is collateral a new idea? Not really; the Finns have offered loan support contingent upon adequate collateral. If used as sovereign loan collateral, there might be another source of demand for the yellow metal. Notable billionaire George Soros offered some perspective on the mess to Spiegel, the German newspaper, on Aug. 15, 2011. He thinks that, though unpalatable to the Germans, they will have to support the euro and euro bonds or face a col-lapse of the banking system. As to China, it might already (and currently) be playing an important, albeit silent, role in the EU problem. China has an interest in having an alternative to the dollar. You can count on China to back the efforts of the Euro-pean authorities to maintain the euro.Ž In response to why the euro is still so strong compared to the U.S. dollar, Soros says, There is a mysterious buyer that keeps propping up the euro.Ž As the euro has been uncannily stable for several months despite being the object of this volatile debate, it might well be that the euro is being supported by deep sovereign pockets ... and that description narrows the field. The average investor who came to the world of investing in the 1990s (a world of investing normalcy) was shell-shocked by 2007-2008s events and is now rightly wondering if the European debt issues can be solved or contained. These are reasonable fears with factual basis. The answer might be around the corner, on or near Sept. 7. That date could be a significant turning point. Thinking that a portfolio manager can follow all these events and, based on fundamentals, choose the perfect portfolio is ludicrous. The facts change every day and the trend is more bad news. There can be stability in the form of a truly diversified portfolio with exposure to: commodities and curren-cies, dividend paying stocks with the potential to increase dividends, long and short positions and sufficient cash available if the Bear continues to rage. Also, there can be tremendous value in trading systems that are not predictive but are reactive to market trends; these systems have no vested interest in any particular economic scenario nor are they entrenched in a specific funda-mental analysis. All these ideas (and more) are possible, partial portfolio solutions for very uncertain times. Talk to your advisers about suitability of any of these ideas, consult several advisers for diversity in perspective and seek the counsel of advisers in areas of specialization.

Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has selected New Panel Homes to provide a green building for its new crew quarters at the National Wild-life Refuge on Wassaw Island, Ga. Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge is 10,053 acres on one of Georgias coastal barrier islands and has 20 miles of dirt roads and seven miles of beach. The island is a maritime for-est, said Shaw Davis, refuge manager, with plenty of slash pine and live oak. It is accessible only by boat. Its a beautiful barrier island,Ž said Tom MacKenzie, who handles media and tribal relations for the FWS Southeast Region. Its one of the last unspoiled islands on Geor-gias coast.Ž Ben Starks, project manager for the Fish and Wildlife Service engi-neering division, hired a subcon-tractor for the project and has been watching the building take shape. In a recent telephone call from Wassaw Island, Mr. Starks said he came across New Panel Homes in Englewood while researching com-panies that would be able to provide the single-story building. It was important to try to build it in the most efficient way possible,Ž he said, noting that the six-panel system New Panel offers will allow for the building to be completed by Oct. 21. In this economy, to have any job is a thrill, said New Panel Homes founder Brian Bishop before leaving Aug. 15 for Wassaw Island. We dont take it for granted.Ž The building replaces a worn-out structure that has been demolished. Well have the ability to (accommodate) up to 10 people,Ž Mr. Davis said. Ranger and fire crews will use the facility for shelter when they are involved in drills, as will researchers studying birds and other wildlife.

FILMS ABOUT ART ARE QUIRKY LITTLE THINGS. Theyre not just entertaining and educational, telling you more about a par-ticular artist or style of art. The really g ood ones can open your eyes to color and shapes and form in the world around you. They can make you sit stunned, in awe. They can deliver a cre-ative jumpstart, a jolt. When done well, films about art are art themselves. Heres a look at five that have done it right:??? “How to Draw a Bunny”John Walter and Andrew MooreDont be misled; How to Draw a BunnyŽ isnt an instruction video, its a documentary about collagist and mail artist Ray Johnson, the enigmatic Pop Art figure who sent out thousands of original collages through the mail. Sometimes hed instruct the recipient to add some-thing to it and send it on to someone else. Sometimes people did, sometimes they didnt. Mr. Johnson hung out with Andy Warhol. He was known by James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Christo, Jeanne-Claude and Chuck Close, all of whom appear in the film. Dealing with him or speaking with him was like Alice falling down the rabbit hole,Ž someone in the movie comments. Hes called A Zen master, an eye-open-er.Ž Considered THE pioneer of mail art, Mr. Johnson turned selling his art into perfor-mance art, delighting in the absurd. For example, he offered to sell a piece to Peter Schuyff and asked him how much he could pay. When Mr. Schuyff offered $1,000, Mr. Johnson countered with $2,000. Mr. Schuyff then said he could pay $1,500, and Mr. Johnson agreed. But when Mr. Schuyff received the collage, he discovered the art-ist had cut out the lower right quarter of it „ $500 worth, one-fourth of Mr. Johnsons original asking price. How to Draw a BunnyŽ is full of stories like this.SEE ART FILMS, A25 X Films about art[that are art themselves]BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@” oridaweekly.com PGA Village in Port St. Lucie hosts the opening ceremonies celebration for the 5th Annual Patriot Golf Day Weekend at the PGA Golf Club on Sept. 3, at 8 a.m. Patriot Golf Day events, held at golf courses nationwide from Sept. 2-5, raise funds for the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military servicemen and women killed or disabled while serving our country. Since 2007, more than $8.6 million has been raised and more than 2,100 scholarships provided. It is an honor to once again host the Patriot Golf Day celebration at PGA Golf Club this Labor Day Weekend,Ž said Bob Baldassari, PGA senior direc-tor of Player Development Programs, for The PGA of America. As we cel-ebrate five years of Patriot Golf Day, we will once again raise funds for the fami-lies of those who have given everything. We invite everyone out to PGA Golf Club to make a difference for our American heroes and join the fun.Ž New this year will be a concert with country music recording art-ists Ricochet and local favorites Boss Gro ove, who will be joined by the Avenue D Boys Choir at Digital Domain Park (St. Lucie Mets Stadium) in Port St. Lucie, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. There will be ceremonies featur-ing Grand Marshalls PGA Chief Execu-tive Officer Joe Steranka and Folds of Honor Foundation vice president Maj. Ed Pulido „ who earned a purple heart after losing his leg while serving in Iraq. The night will kick off with family golf activities beginning at 6 p.m. The festivities move to PGA Golf Club on Sept. 3, for the annual free parade and opening ceremonies, as well as the John Shimkonis Memorial Medal Golf Tournament to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, BBQ lunch and prizes at PGA Golf Club. That evening, Patriot Golf Day celebrations will move back to Digital Domain Park for a St. Lucie Mets game at 7 p.m., followed by postgame fireworks. Both the players and Ricochet band members will wear special Patriot Golf Day uniforms that the Mets will autograph and auction off throughout the weekend to raise money for the Folds of Honor Foundation. The charity golf event is $125 and is part of a package that includes tickets to the concert, 18 holes at PGA Golf Club, BBQ lunch, prizes, St. Lucie Mets game ticket and Folds of Honor Foundation donation. Active and retired military members will pay a special $65 rate. To reserve, call 800-800-4653. Individual concert tickets are $15 for the lower bowl and $12 for the upper bowl. Kids 3 and under are free. Concert tickets only are available at the Digital Domain Box Office at 772-871-2115. A charity Flag Day Tournament will follow on Sept.4; and an Individual Point Quota tourna-ment will be conducted on Labor Day. Both events will feature a closest to the pin contest on all par-3 holes at PGA Golf Club. Throughout the weekend, there will be family golf events as a fund-raiser at the nearby PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance, and the PGA Museum of Golf will show-case a new exhibit that pays tribute to the 93rd PGA Championship, with free admission.

Before we know it, were standing knee-deep. Better to own our truth, like Suze Orman says, than to slog through a ter-rain of denial. Q In financial guru Suze Ormans new book, T he M oney Class,Ž she invites readers to stand in your truth.Ž She means about money „ about debt, about overspending, about the financial choic-es rooted in denial that got so many people in trouble „ but I think what she says has broader implications. When it comes to relationships, many of us refuse to stand in our truth. My friend Lindsay knew Pablo for some time „ they worked in the same restaurant, in fact „ before they first hooked up. While she wrote orders for veal piccata and mussels marinara, he bused plates and wiped tables clean with a flick of his wrist. They chatted in the kitchen between orders, and once she tossed a playful wink in his direction. One night they shared a cigarette outside the back door while the city lights cast an orange glow overhead. Pablo reached out and touched her hair. Muy guapa,Ž he said. After their shift ended, they took the subway back to her apartment. In the morning he sent her a text from the train, thanking her for the night. A series of lusty rendezvous followed, steady sex even if the relationship wasnt. They met mostly on his timeline, without much If he says, “just friends,” deal with it SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com O “We’re just friends,” he said, the relationship equivalent of “I don’t owe you a thing...”romantic overture.Lindsay eventually found a job in another state, an administrative posi-tion that took her out of the business of waiting tables, and in the loneliness and fear and unexpected regret that comes just before a move she pushed Pablo to come over. He met her insis-tence with silence. No texts, no phone calls. Angry and drinking on the eve of her departure, Lindsay fired off an irate message.I cant believe youd do this to me,Ž she said. Just before I leave.Ž In the morning, Pablo sent a message back. Were just friends,Ž he said, the relationship equivalent of I dont owe you a thing.ŽWhich he didnt. When it comes to romance, we know when things are on the relationship track by our partners actions. The way they call to ask about our day; the way they take us out on Friday night, not just for drinks but the whole deal: din-ner and a movie. They demonstrate that they value our time in bed and out. These are the hallmarks of a steady relationship, and with-out them the experience derails quickly, plung-ing headlong into the nether world of untethered hooking up.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A25 Although everyone who came into contact with Ray Johnson has a story, it appeared that no one truly knew him, not even his partner of 20 years. No wonder he was called New Yorks most famous unknown artist.Ž This somewhat surreal movie itself is like one of his collages: an image here, a story there, odd pieces put together to form a picture of a life. But that picture is very difficult to interpret. Especially when you learn that he killed himself at age 67, leaving behind no note. How to Draw a BunnyŽ begins and ends with the artists suicide by drowning on a Friday the 13th. He left behind a house filled with boxes containing thousands of works of art. Though the film shows us many of his works, I would have liked to see even more. At the end, the filmmaker himself says the definitive movie about Mr. Johnson and his art has yet to be made, and that perhaps How to Draw a BunnyŽ will spur someone else to do so. Running time: 90 minutes??? “Andy Goldsworthy, Rivers and Tides: Working With Time”Thomas RiedelsheimerSculptor Andy Goldsworthy relies on nature as his medium „nature, and time. His site-specific art uses water, rocks, stone, leaves, flowers, twigs. When the tide is low, Mr. Goldsworthy builds large vase-shaped objects out of stone or twigs, and then watches, and photographs, what happens as the water rolls in. Through time-lapse photography, we see an ice sculpture melt, or a design of twigs in a meadow shift with the wind and become bleached in the sun, changing with the elements. The transitory nature of Mr. Goldsworthys work emphases birth and life and the cycle of life. The real work is the change,Ž he declares at one point. The images in Rivers and Tides: Working With TimeŽ are so haunting, so beautiful, that I often wanted to just freeze the frame and stare at the screen for a while. (Among the extras on the DVD is a photo gallery of some of Mr. Goldsworthys organic sculp-tures.) We get to watch him work, a task that seems equal parts discipline and play. And he talks willingly, with poignancy and precision, about his process. This is just a stunningly beautiful DVD that emphasizes the transitory nature of life. Art for me is a form of nourishment,Ž he says. I need the land. I need it. I want to understand that state and that energy that I have in me (and) that I also feel in the plants and in the land. Energy and life that is running through, flowing through the landscape.Ž Running time: 90 minutes ???“Helvetica”Gary HustwitHelveticaŽ is a movie about typography for people who dont think theyre interested in typography. A Swiss typeface created in 1957 to be fresh and mod-ern, Helvetica was so popu-lar that designers began using it on everything: busi-ness logos, stamps, signage, advertising, etc. The American Airlines logo is Helvetica. The signage for the New York subway system is Hel-vetica. IRS tax forms are in Helvetica. The logos for Crate&Barrel and American Apparel and The Gap are in Helvetica. Director Gary Hustwit interviews various design-ers around the world about the importance of Helvetica and what makes it work. One calls it bracing and thrilling.Ž Another exclaims, Oh, its brilliant when (used) well!Ž Its classic, timeless and ubiquitous. But familiarity can breed contempt, and in some ways, that has been Helveticas downfall. Mr. Hustwit interviews designers who hate Helvetica and have rebelled against it. One calls it a nightmare, a total nightmare.Ž Its too familiar, too dull, too predictable, they complain. Its the off-whiteŽ of typefaces. He interviews design superstars such as Paula Scher, Ste-fan Sagmeister, David Carson. Older ones become positively poetic when speaking about the typeface, talking in passionate, lyrical terms. But then, as with many trends, theres been a backlash to the back-lash, and some younger designers are once again embracing Helvetica. One explains that he grew up with it, saying, its a natural mother tongueƒ almost in our blood.Ž Mr. Hustwit is careful to pres-ent both sides, all the while showing us example after example after example in the world around us. Running time: 80 minutes???“Objectified”Gary HustwitThe follow-up film to Helvetica,Ž ObjectifiedŽ is the second in what is turning out to be a design trilogy. In this gorgeous film that looks at the role of industrial design in our lives, the director interviews those who cre-ate the style and look of our lives: our toothbrushes, alarm clocks, laptops, tea-pots, radios, faucets, furni-ture and cars. Once again, Mr. Hustwit travels around the world to talk with designers in New York, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Tehran and Milan, at firms such as Apple, Braun and IDEO. Through his film and his artists eye for composition, he helps us see the beauty of everyday things, from plastic chairs to hedge clippers. According to Dieter Rams, former design director of Braun in Germany, Good design should be innova-tiveƒ makes a product use-fulƒ is aesthetic designƒ will make a product under-standableƒ is honestƒ unob-trusiveƒ consistent in every detailƒ is as little design as possible.Ž After seeing Objectified,Ž youll never look at the things around you in the same way ever again. Running time: 75 minutes ???“Exit Through the Gift Shop”BanksyThe Academy Award-nominated Exit Through the Gift ShopŽ is much like the mainstream blockbuster InceptionŽ„ everyone has a differ-ent opinion and interpretation of the movie. Allegedly a documentary about street art, (SPOILER ALERT), its quite possible or probable the film is actu-ally a mockumentary or a hoax. On the surface, its the story of Thierry Guetta, a Frenchman living in Los Angeles, who decides to make a film about street art. He begins following various artists, including Shepard Fair-ey and the reclusive Banksy. But Mr. Guetta doesnt have the first clue about how to make a film. Banksy takes over, and Mr. Guetta decides to become an artist himself. Calling himself Mr. Brainwash, he holds his first show, pre-selling $100,000 worth of his work and becoming the subject of a cover story in LA Weekly. Art collectors go crazy. Madonna asks him to design the cover of her greatest hits album. As a viewer watching Exit Through the Gift Shop,Ž you ask yourself: What do I really know to be true? What is real? And you quickly realize: very little.Its quite likely this film is a huge prank. If it were literature, Mr. Guetta would probably be referred to as an unreliable narrator. He strikes me as a trickster. Its quite possible that the joke is on the viewer, and on the collectors who rush to purchase Mr. Guettas art „ which may not even be his own. He has crews of people making the art for him „ crews that have also made art for Banksy and Mr. Fairey. The entire film could be a ruse by legendary street artist Banksy. Or maybe not. It certainly seems a commentary on consumerism and celebrity in the art field, and a laugh at those gullible enough to buy any-thing thats hyped. (Hence, the title, Exit Through the Gift Shop.Ž) Running time: 86 minutes Q ART FILMSFrom page A23 g t

Ms. Chaparro says the piece, which was about 10 feet wide and 25 feet long, was designed so that it looked like a hole in the ground and kids could sit on the art and have their picture taken to look like they were falling into the hole with Alice. The artist and her assistant first applied a layer of tempera paint because they were working on granite. The work took 2 days and 26 sticks of chalk to complete, according to Ms. Chaparro.

They can tell time if set up properly. They have been made for cen-turies and collectors search for the flat type called equatorialŽ or equinoctialŽ sundials by experts, and other types like those made to hang on a wall or those that are spherical or cone-shaped. The age, maker, shape and decoration all determine the price. Usually 17thand 18th-century signed brass sundials are best. There are two important parts to a sundial. The plate,Ž which usually is a round, flat disk marked with numbers, and the gnomon,Ž the piece that casts the shadow on the plate. Most modern sundials come with directions for instal-lation. It is determined by the latitude, the North Star and some adjustments to find due north. There are websites that list complete directions. Many sundials sold in gift shops today make no attempt to be used as anything but ornaments and cannot be set accurately. A very small handheld sundial made in the mid-18th century by Andreas Volger of Augs-burg, Germany, was auctioned in 2010 by Skinners in Boston. It has an octagonal base and engraved Roman numerals, Latin words and city names. It sold for $450. Look for garden antiques that can stay outside, like a large brass sundial, but wipe the brass with a thin coating of wax for added protection from rain. Q: I have read about dangerous jugs made of radioactive clay. I collect stone-ware jugs. What should I worry about? A: When radium was discovered, many thought it had curative qualities. So some quack medicine potions and medical devices were made using radium. One of the most popular and the one most often a prob-lem today is the Revigorator jug.Ž Although it was made in the 19th century, it is shaped like an atomic energy plant cooling tower. There is a spigot near the bottom of the jug and printed information on the sides. The jug was made with radioactive material, and even today the jugs are radioactive. They should be tested with a Geiger counter if kept on display. The inside is more dangerous than the outside, so do not put your hand inside. And although the instructions say to fill the jug with water you can drink during the day, thats a danger to your health. It probably is best not to display a Revigorator. To get rid of it, you should ask how your city handles toxic waste. Other jugs and bottles may contain remnants of dangerous poisons, so be very careful about leaving them open or even saving the contents. Q: I collect stuffed-cloth advertising dolls. What are the most important dolls to look for? A: Every collector has favorites. I like the early Aunt Jemima family of four, Kelloggs Rice Krispies Snap, Crackle and Pop and Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Campbell Soups Campbell Kids and the Pillsbury Doughboy. More recent dolls include those made for fast-food restaurants, like McDonalds Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler, and Burger Kings King. Q: When was fake bamboo furniture popular? I have a dresser that has drawer edges made of wooden dowels painted to look like bamboo. Round, carved and painted, bamboo-shaped posts at the edges serve as trim and feet. A: Everything Asian, especially Japanese, was considered elegant, myste-Sundials tell time and old talesKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terry KOVEL news@floridaweekly.com O rious and high-fashion in the days of the Aesthetic Movement, from the 1870s to 1900. In Britain, bamboo and faux-bamboo furniture was popular for summer homes. The idea spread to the United States, and R.J. Horner Co. of New York City was the best-known of the furniture makers that popularized the style. The U.S. Centennial in 1876 mounted some Japanese exhibits that sent American designers of pottery, furniture and other decorative arts in a new direction. The American furniture on display was made of wooden faux bamboo because these pieces were stronger and would last longer than anything made with real bamboo. In Britain, real bamboo often was used. Today, 19th-century bamboo pieces are again popular and more diffi-cult to find, but theyre still priced lower than top-quality new furniture.Tip: Glue weatherstripping to the bottom of a chair rocker to protect the floor.

Call Kate at 561-626-6860 or email kate@eastpointe-cc.com. a Eastpointe Country Club is a private golf and country club conveniently located on Donald Ross Road just west of I-95 (or Hood Road just west of I-95). “There’s only one Eastpointe Country Club!” www.eastpointe-cc.com The haunted house thriller can sometimes feel like a lost art, especially with advances in visual effects making it easy to conjure spirits out of nowhere. But like InsidiousŽ earlier this year, Dont Be Afraid Of The DarkŽ is a triumph of mood and tone that dutifully holds us in suspense until the very end. Eager to renovate and sell their old and gothic Rhode Island mansion for a profit, Alex (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) are fastidious about trying to keep their affairs in order. Alexs daugh-ter Sally (Bailee Madison) coming to live with them throws the plans for a loop, but Kim tries to make the most of it by consid-ering it a good opportunity to bond. Then mysterious voices are heard in a fireplace. First theyre friendly and inno-cent, then not so nice. And Sally gets blamed for cutting Kims clothes. Sally also starts wandering the expansive grounds, becomes curious about places shes spe-cifically told to stay away from, and then (being a kid) of course pursues the forbid-den. We know from the chilling prologue that there are small, Darth Sidious-looking creatures living below the house, and we quickly sense that this family is about to find out the same. Its all very creepy and ominous, and as long as youre in the mood for a good scare, a lot of fun. First-time feature film director Troy Nixey (under the watchful eye of stylist extraordinaire Guillermo Del Toro (Pans LabyrinthŽ)) casts the film in almost con-stant shadow and darkness, which makes the creatures more haunting after we find out theyre afraid of light. Even scenes set during the day are overcast and gloomy, all of which correctly establishes an atmo-sphere thats disturbingly foreboding. These creatures may be small, but this family is in for a darn good fight. Having a child at the center of a good old-fashioned horror movie can be dicey, so its a compliment to say Madison is never annoying in the films true lead role. And fortunately, because the film isnt over-laden with visual effects, the actors are allowed to have a real presence and all hold up their end of the bargain. Dont Be Afraid Of The DarkŽ is deservedly rated R, though its not excessively violent nor particularly gory. Yes, there is some shocking violence and blood, but there is only enough to make you squeamish, not enough to make you lose yesterdays lunch. The end of the summer is a terrible time for any new release „ theres burn out following the last four months (ThorŽ now feels so long ago), kids going back to school, football season back in play. My recommendation is to end your hot sum-mer by enjoying this chilling experience on the big screen. Q „ Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.Conan The Barbarian ++ (Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang) An ancient warrior (Mr. Momoa) seeks revenge on the man (Mr. Lang) who killed his father (Ron Perlman). Its literally non-stop action, which is amus-ing at times but gets tirelessly mindnumbing after a while. Rated R.Spy Kids: All The Time In The World + (Jessica Alba, Jeremy Piven, Joel McHale) A former spy and now loving mother (Ms. Alba) comes out of retirement to stop a villain named The Timekeeper from speeding up time and ending the world. The acting is wooden, the visual effects are cartoonish, the 3D is a waste and the AromascopeŽ scratch-and-sniff cards all smell the same. This is one of the worst movies of the year. Rated PG.Fright Night +++ (Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette) A teenager (Mr. Yelchin) suspects his new neighbor (Mr. Farrell) is a vampire in this remake of the 80s cult classic. The action and performances are solid and its nicely made, but dont waste money on the 3D. Rated R.
