A24 XAugust was not the best of months for the sea turtles that nest in South Florida. First, Andre the green turtle, who was released after more than a year of treat-ment at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center for life-threatening injuries, turned up dead on Hutchinson Island a mere three weeks at sea. Then Hurricane Irene blew past the coast, damaging turtle nests and leaving the beaches strewn with trash. The Marinelife Centers 2,300 active nests on Juno Beach and Jupiter beach were reduced to about 900. At first, that sounds pretty bad.We lost about 20 percent of all of our nests for the season,Ž says Kelly Martin, Marinelife Center biologist, adding, Ero-sion is something we learn to live with.Ž Sea turtle nesting is up overall, Ms. Martin says. As of Sept. 12, the Marinelife Center staff has counted 7,669 loggerhead turtle nests, 1,891 green turtle nests and 278 leatherback nests along the 9 miles of shoreline they cover from the Martin County line south to John D.

The grumpy, quarrelsome former vice president is hawking a book billed as a personal and political memoirŽ and has been a constant presence on television news and chat shows. Never one to be subtle, Mr. Cheney promised in advance of publication that his tome would cause heads to explode,Ž which is an interesting and unsettling observation, I think, to come from a man who unloaded a round of birdshot into the face of a companion during a quail hunt in Texas in 2006. (Tellingly, Harry Whittington „ the victim in this incident „ says Mr. Cheney never both-ered to apologize for shooting him.) By the way, has anyone ever pointed out that Mr. Cheney and Aaron Burr are the only two sitting vice presidents to shoot someone? At least Burr gave his target, Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamil-ton, a sporting chance before he shot him, seeing as how it was a duel. I confess that I have read only snippets of the memoir, and I havent seen every interview, but from what I gather, the book confirms what we long have known: Dick Cheney is one scary dude. Mr. Cheney was not only content to demolish Iraq for reasons that still remain a mystery. It turns out he also wanted to bomb Syria in 2007. The only thing that prevented him from pursuing this misadventure was the fact that no other senior official in the Bush administration thought that reducing Damascus to rubble was an especially good idea. Per usual, Mr. Cheney believes that he was right and everyone else was either wrong or too fainthearted to do the much-needed dirty work of protecting the United States. It seems that Colin Powell and Condo-leeza Rice really got under Mr. Cheneys skin. In the book, Mr. Cheney trashes the former secretaries of state in a highly personal fashion, depicting Mr. Pow-ell as duplicitous and untrustworthy, and portraying Ms. Rice as a weepy lightweight playing way out of her league. Mr. Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, who was defense secretary for a while, liked to do things their way, and they didnt take kindly to dissenting opinions. When necessary, Mr. Cheney and Rummy might run something by George W. Bush (he was president, after all), but for the most part they wished to be left alone to do things like invading Iraq for no credible reason. All White Houses are boiler rooms, but the Bush White House must have been a particularly nasty place to hang your hat. Mr. Cheney professes to believe that the Iraq fiasco was a good idea, and the world is a better place for it. But you may recall he was wrong on every major statement he made about that war. He said Americans would be hailed as liberators, that flowers would be tossed in the direction of GIs. There was nary a mention of the possibility of improvised explod-ing devices and a pro-tracted insurgency. He also predicted that we could wrap that Iraq mess up in about six months. That was in 2003, and here we are now, in 2011, still trying to figure out how to salvage this atrocious and unnec-essary use of military force. Mr. Cheney seems to be much bet-ter at waging war from behind a desk than from the front lines. He sought and received five defer-ments to avoid going to Vietnam. He thought Vietnam to be a noble cause, but he certainly did not want to go there and fight. In his recent interviews, Mr. Cheney has, as one would expect, defended vig-orously his advocacy of enhanced inter-rogation techniques,Ž which in other parts of the civilized world are referred to simply as torture.Ž The former vice president makes waterboarding sound like little more than what you would encounter at a fraternity hazing. In a funny way, though, the return of Dick Cheney might be a bright spot for President Obama. Mr. Cheney is so compellingly unpleasant that he is interesting in the way, say, that Vlad the Impaler was interesting. Because of this, the public tends to actually tune in when he has something to say. His book tour has attracted oodles of publicity as a result. Now, I realize fully that Mr. Obama has become a disappointment to even some of his earliest and strongest sup-porters and, yes, it is true that the presidents approval rating is dropping so hard and so fast that he could collide with Rick Scott at any moment. And how in the world does a president win re-election with an unemployment rate that hovers at 9 percent? Thats going to be a tough slog for Mr. Obama, who increasingly comes across as not only ineffectual but weirdly passive as well. But Mr. Cheney has handed the president a rare gift: perspective. We may not like how Mr. Obama has handled his multiple crises, but Mr. Cheney provides a full and fast flashback as to how we ended up in such dire straits to begin with. It is said that Mr. Obama will raise close to $1 billion for the 2012 election. If I were his campaign manager, Id take a chunk of that change and buy several million copies of Mr. Cheneys book. Then Id mail the copies out to every independent voter I could identify. As a final touch, I would slap a Post-it on the cover of each and every copy. And on that Post-it I would write one word: Remember?Ž Q He’s baaaaaack i n a D g w bill CORNWELL O

PAGE 4 FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2011 If you are student of Islam, you take a pilgrimage to Mecca; if you are a student of Judeo-Christian beliefs, you take a pil-grimage to Jerusalem; if you are student of the nonviolent civil rights movement that shaped our nation, you take a pilgrim-age to the King Center in Atlanta. A few weeks ago, several county residents and I planned to go to our nations capital to see the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. statue on our National Mall. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene would not allow us to go to Washington, D.C., so we loaded up in a van and traveled to Atlanta to experience a retracing of the life and times of one of the greatest Americans our nation has ever produced. Our journey took us first to the King Center in the heart of downtown Atlanta. This site is a living memorial to Dr. King and it includes his childhood home, the original Ebenezer Baptist Church and the tomb of Dr. King and his lovely wife, Coretta Scott King. I experienced many different emotions as I walked through the King center. When our group received a tour of the King home it introduced me to a side of Dr. King that I was unfamiliar with, such as him and his brother attempt-ing to break the family piano because their father, Daddy King, required his kids to learn and play the piano. The King chil-dren were not particularly good at playing the piano so they attempted to break it so they would not have to play it anymore. Little did the kids know that the day they were attempting to break the piano, their father, a local minister, was home. He caught them in the act. Daddy King disciplined them as only he could, and perhaps MLK Jr., the nickname the fam-ily used for Dr. King, learned a valuable life lesson that day. He would be a builder and not a destroyer. The young kid who hated playing the piano would become Americas greatness drum major for jus-tice and equality for all of our citizens. I was also amazed by how well MLK Jr. and his family lived. They lived in a beautiful two-story house that would still be consid-ered nice even by todays standards. The family home was provided by the local church where his father was the leader, as was customary for the day. Visiting the King home left me inspired, but our next stop was more sobering and depressing. As we paid our respects to the tombs of Dr. King and Mrs. King, I was overcome by my emotions as tears began to come from my eyes. There lay a man who life was taken from him so violently and so young. He never got an opportu-nity to see the fruits of his labors or enjoy seeing his kids grow to become adults or become an old man with the love of his life, Coretta. He accomplished more in his 39 years here with us than most of us could accomplish if we were to live to be 100. As I stood in front of his tomb, I wondered what would have been if this man had not been taken from us so soon. What else would he have contributed to the world if only he had more time? If visiting Dr. Kings Tomb left me weary, then our walking into the sanctuary at Old Ebenezer Baptist Church rejuvenated my spirits. It is the church that was led by three generations of Kings family mem-bers, or as it is known in Atlanta „ the House of worship that the Kings built. As we were sitting in the sanctuary listening to the replaying of the speech by MLK Jr. at his own funeral, it was very touch-ing. When the sermon was over and the crowd began to leave, I walked up to the podium where Dr. King used to delivered his weekly sermon and a rush of electricity went through my body. The next day, Sun-day, Aug. 28, we joined thousands of others in attending service at the new Ebenezer Baptist Church and heard a wonderful and uplifting message from Rev. Joseph Roberts, the man who took over pastoring responsibilities from Daddy King in 1975. In keeping with Sunday tradition after the service, we went out for lunch at More-house College, a historically black college with a rich history and deep ties to the King family. It is where Dr. King graduated in 1948. The thought occurred to me that MLK Jr. was like Moses, who did not live to see the Israelites enter into the Prom-ised Land. Dr. King did not live to see our country live out the true meaning of its creed, or live up to the words in our Constitution, nor did he live to see a bi-racial man take the oath of office as the president of our country. So as our Jewish brothers and sisters who celebrate the Passover and remember Gods favor to them by sending Moses to lead them to freedom, let us all celebrate Dr. King for leading this nation to the high-er ground of freedom and justice for all. Q „ Anthony Thomas Jr. is chairman of Citizens For A Better Fort Myers Government. He can be reached ats popular today to complain that our national government is too contentious and that theres not enough compromise. Some of the people complaining are politi-cians who arent getting their way. Contentious government is as American as apple pie. In our system, compromise is the last resort. Its partly because of the way our government is set up. Some governments are autocracies. Autocrats dont need to compromise. Other governments are parliamentary. In those, the chief executive isnt elected by the people. He or she is chosen by the parliament. Inside the parliament, people from many different parties build coali-tions in order to get a majority. They have to compromise to win. Were different here in the U.S.A. We have three branches with a division of powers. We have two dominant political parties. We citizens get to choose our lead-ers, but it turns out that we pretty much have to pick sides to make our voices heard. The two parties duke it out. Which means our politics are not shades of gray, with compromise necessary to win. Our politics is push and shove. It is our political DNA. One of our most famous founding fathers was Thomas Jefferson. He is credited with writing the Declaration of Independence. Nevertheless, when he ran for president in 1800, he was tied with Aaron Burr. The House of Representatives had to choose. They voted 36 times before compromising on Jefferson.It was contentious and complex. As with politics today, the battle was over both ideology and personalities. Ideologically, it was the big-government Federalists against the limited-government Democratic-Repub-licans. At a more personal level, it was a battle between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton hated Burr and appar-ently persuaded the House to support Jeffer-son, presumably as the lesser of two evils. In 1804, Burr killed Hamilton in a duel.Politicians havent been dueling to the death regularly, and a lot of other things have changed since then. The U.S.A. has matured from colonial upstart to global leader. The Constitution has more amend-ments. More people have more rights. Government is more deeply involved in our lives than ever. However, there remains persistent contentiousness about the size of government, how much of our money it takes and how that money is to be spent. The president took office with his views on these issues. His party held sway in both the House and Senate. Then after two years of this majority, voters insisted on different perspectives in the Congress, with stronger partisanship, not less. Now, the presidents views are balanced, if not checked, by the House. In some circles, there has been a chorus of criticism of Tea Party members over their seeming intransigence on the size of government and the solvency of Medicare, Social Security and the government itself. They came to Washington with a mission to cut spending. Some of them say they plan no political future. They have little to lose by holding out until the end of the process, even if they are vilified.In a classic political strategy, they linked their issue to a bigger one: the debt ceil-ing. Faced with a deadline, the Republican House and the Democratic Senate agreed on a bill. The president signed it. All sides won something, yet no one got everything. To some minds, they reached a compromise.The framers designed an untidy system. It establishes boundaries and divisions to prevent consolidation of power. Neither chamber has an obligation to grant the Oval Office its will. The president has no obligation to sign what the Congress approves. Our system is set up to grind out solutions a majority can live with for now. Complaints about compromise are politi-cal rhetoric. They serve as a rallying cry that can invigorate supporters and increase political pressure. There is a lot of discussion about how divided we are. Our system was not designed to pull us together. It was designed to ensure we could participate and argue for our point of view. It can be contentious and boisterous; but its a mis-take to conclude that its only noise and posturing. We may wish it could be less messy, but were better served as a nation to learn to make the system work for us and our views.People complain, Its all politics.Ž It is; and theres nothing wrong with that. Its how we do government. Were wired that way. Q „ Mike Jackson is a former NBC TV network correspondent and Chicago TV news anchor who covered state and national politics and the economy.

MICHAEL PAPA Chiropractor/Clinic Director BACK TO SCHOOL & SPORTS PHYSICALS JUST $20 Special to Florida WeeklyNearly 1,000 people participated in the 5th Annual Patriot Golf Day hosted by PGA of America in Port St. Lucie, and the event raised about $20,000, according to a preliminary count. The money goes to the Folds of Honors Foundation, which provides scholar-ships to families of military veterans disabled or killed in action. PGA of Amer-ica along with USGA supports the Folds of Honors Founda-tion and, addition-ally benefits it with Patriot Golf Events at approximately 4,500 registered PGA facilities. Joe Steranka, C.E.O. of PGA of America, and Maj. Ed Pulido led the festivities as Grand Marshals. Patriot Golf Day is a celebration of what has taken place over decades of the history of the PGA of AmericaŽ said Mr. Steranka, who traced the PGAs historic connection to the military back to World War I, when PGA members raised funds to provide an ambulance to support the troops. This year, we will cross over $10 million raised for the Folds of Honor Founda-tion through Patriot Golf Day, which has provided more than 2,000 scholarships for the families of military veterans, and The PGA of America is delighted to take part.Ž Maj. Pulido expressed his feelings and thoughts about this day in his speech to U.S. military heroes: How nice it is to stand in front of you so honored and humbled.Ž This year Patriot Golf Day featured the first in its history charity con-cert on Friday night nearby in Digital Domain Park, the spring training home of the New York Mets. The headline act was national recording artist Ricochet, which had a No. 1 hit in the 1990s with Daddys MoneyŽ and featured Dwayne Dupuy „ a PGA Professional for Dicks Sporting Goods in Nashville „ on keyboards, vocals, drums and trumpet. My two passions are music and golf,Ž explains Mr. Dupuy, who performs in approximately 60 shows a year nationwide. The concert also featured performances by local band Boss Groove and the Avenue D Choir. On Saturday, the traditional John Shimkonis Memorial Medal Golf Tour-nament at PGA Golf Club gathered more that 100 participants to honor the first PGA Professional who sacrificed his life while serving his country. Other weekend events included: Charitable Flag Day and Point Quota golf tournaments; 10-minute golf lessons in exchange for donations to the Folds of Honor Foundation at the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance; a blood drive on The Big Red Bus; and family golf events.

MARTY BECKER Universal UclickWhen I look around the waiting room at one of the two Idaho veterinary hos-pitals where I practice, I too often see something that concerns me. Where are the cats?Cats have long been the most popular of pets. At the nations veterinary hospitals, though, dogs take most of the appointment slots and get most of the wellness care. The biggest reason cats are shortchanged when it comes to their health is that people dont like catching them, putting them in carriers and deal-ing with the difficult behavior of fearful cats. So what can be done? The lack of preventive care for cats means making these pets happier has become a high priority for many vet-erinarians. Veterinary behaviorists have been helping veterinarians design facili-ties and protocols to make cat visits less stressful for all, including dogs, pet owners and hospital staff. Youll see a lot of changes in the years to come, as veterinary clinics and hospitals begin to handle feline patients with greater knowledge of feline behavior. The use of pheromones is one such change. When Im practicing, I wear so much of the synthetic cat pheromone called Feliway (a version of feline facial pheromones, which relax cats) that its more like aftershave to me. As veterinarians work to make their practices fear-free and feline-friendly, theres a lot you can do to help your cat relax when its time to see the doc-tor. The American Academy of Feline Practitioners offers new guidelines at Here are the main points: Q Get your cat used to being handled. Be patient and build up your cats toler-ance for handling. Make sessions short and reward your cat with treats or the kind of petting she enjoys, such as under the chin. Q Choose a cat-friendly carrier. Find a carrier that opens from the front and top, or that opens from the front and unclips easily to allow the entire top to come off so the cat can remain on her Cats routinely miss out on the benefits of preventive care because of the difficulty of getting them to the veterinarian.

Youre going from Hitchcock to a whimsical Joseph to a darker Cabaret evening to an impactful drama in Red to a classic in Hello, Dolly. Its like going on a really good vacation. Youre going to get a little bit of everything.Ž That is part of the Maltzs mission to be Jupiters hometown professional theater. As with last years productions of Acad-emyŽ and The Sound of Music,Ž young performers from South Florida and the Treasure Coast will join the Maltzs profes-sional cast of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.Ž JosephŽ will have a rotation of eight casts of 30 youngsters. Drawing from a broad cross-section of the com-munity makes a state-ment about what were trying to do here as a regional theater by engag-ing our community,Ž Mr. Kato says. That is one of the jobs of regional theater, he says. People really enjoy the intimacy of our theater. They like sup-porting the fact that we create art here, that all of our shows are produced and in a way they are putting money back into our economy,Ž Mr. Kato says. The money is not going back to a New York producer; its going back into their own town.Ž And that gives patrons something they can count on. There are two things that, when I took this post as artistic director, we needed „ quality and consistency. And we deliver that every season,Ž he says. You may not like it thematically, but it will be a quality production. You will not bring your friends and be embarrassed.Ž In addition to its own season productions, the Maltz also has a series of lim-ited engagements „ typically one-night performances by singers or comedians. Those get under way with the lecture Spies: Movies vs. RealityŽ (Oct. 24) and end with classic rock harmonies by Jay and the Ameri-cans (March 26). The theater also offers its Kids Korner series for children. Those begin Oct. 22 with Jigsaw Jones, the Case of the Class Clown.Ž As with the previous two seasons, the Maltz will offer a free film screening pegged to its season productions. This years will be CabaretŽ (Jan. 1). In the end, Mr. Kato wants efforts at the theater to be directed toward its season pro-ductions. I think every year when people say this is the best season ever, its an honest response because they are growing as part of a theater community,Ž he says. This is just a building. Its what goes into it in the artists, the support, the energy. The stu-dents learning, whats going on under this roof is what makes theater great.Ž Q MALTZFrom page 1 >> Here are ve shows Maltz Jupiter Theatre Artistic Director Andrew Kato says you should not miss:1. “The Good Times are Killing Me” — "I'm pretty passionate about that for the right reasons. For kids that averaging around 15 years old to tackle a play that deals with such subject matter and with such depth of emotion. I think it's pretty profound to tackle. They put a lot of work into this and I think that it should be supported just for that reason. To see these kids take such a major step with such subject matter."Our mission is to create the next generation of audience goers. This is a very useful piece. The kids are learning they live in a very different world today and they're learning about the growth they have made and have not made as a country.2. “Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” — "When you realize we're putting 240 children from the community into the show, it makes a statement about what we're trying to do here as a regional theater by engaging our community. Plus, they're just part of a very exciting cast led by our narrator, who is Jodi Langel, who was our Evita. What a great Andrew Lloyd Webber pastiche as well. It's great for the holidays, too."3. “Red” — "When I was at the Tony Awards and saw Red,' I knew it was a play I wanted to produce here. Not only is it the great story of Mark Rothko and the challenges he had, more from an artist's standpoint of doing a commission for the Seagrams building for the Four Seasons. He has a student in his studio who he has hired to help him. It's about passing the baton. In the case of Rothko, it's about his irresponsibility with that. It's a com-pelling play that really weaves all of those issues into a presentation in which they paint onstage. To classical music, they're priming the canvases. You smell the paint. It's very visceral. It has a lot of con ict. Con ict is when audiences sit forward in their seats." 4. “Hello, Dolly!” — "We're inviting back Tony nominee Marsha Milgrom Dodge, who directed "Anything Goes" (in 2010). We have Tony Award winner Gary Beach and there are rumblings of other Broadway stars. I think because of her love of tap, we may see some of that infusion in the piece."5. It’s a three-way tie — "The annual Capitol Steps show, which always sells out, and Celtic Crossroads. We're doing an evening of arias with Palm Beach Opera. As for Capitol Steps, it should be a fun year to spoof politics. Should be really funny this year." >>The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is at 1001 E. Indiantown Road, Jupiter. Five-play subscrip-tions are available at $178-$252 each. Four-play subscriptions are available at $151-$214 each. Individual tickets to "The 39 Steps" and "Red" are $39-$57 each.

PAGE 12 FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2011 As Ellen reached for the dinner roll, she could see her husbands eyes darken with disdain. Jerry (not their real names) didnt say a word, but he didnt have to. She knew what he was thinking. He had said many times before that it was just a matter of self-discipline. She didnt really know how those fifteen pounds had crept up on her, but she could swear that Jerry had chronicled every bite. In his eyes, there was no excuse for laziness, sloppiness or activities of excess. Jerry had many opinions he felt strongly about and was not often open to considering points of view that differed from his. He had this unsettling way of showing contempt that was very unnerving. Ellen had fallen into a pattern of looking at him expectantly, trying to gauge his reaction before she spoke. She was ashamed to acknowledge that she sometimes hid things from him: Whether it was stopping at the McDonalds drive-through and eating the burger in the car, or sneaking the shoes she had scored at the Bloomingdales sale into her closet (hoping he wouldnt notice that they were new.) If she missed a gym workout, she knew Jerry would not be pleased. She wasnt sure why she let him get to her the way he did, or why she didnt speak up in her defense. There were many ways he came through for her but lately she just felt so diminished. Why was she so intimidated? He was her husband, for goodness sake! Most of us enter our most important relationships with the highest of hopes and expectations. We are usually seeking a partner who admires us, treats us with respect and consideration, and supports us as we face the challenges life inevitably dishes out. It can be terribly dishearten-ing if this relationship deteriorates to an environment where there is perceived cynicism, criticism or negativity. Its probably a natural inclination for most of us to react defensively to criti-cism. If we feel attacked, its tempting to lash out with equally cutting retorts, with an attempt to even the score. Or else, we may protect ourselves by withdrawing in stony silence. Of course, we know that either reaction escalates the negativity. Finding a way to effectively speak up in a dignified manner, while maintaining our self-respect, requires a tremendous amount of restraint and self-care. Upon reflection, Ellen realized that when she felt demeaned by Jerry she would often retreat to her room, cancel plans with her girlfriends, or sabotage her diet by gorging food to the point of self-disgust. Although she was painfully aware that none of these behaviors were in her best interest, she felt locked into this self-defeating way of handling the hurt. She realized that it would be important for her personal growth to understand why she remained in a position of feeling so badly about herself without speaking up, and why she deferred to Jerry as much as she did. When Ellen stepped aside to consider how she, herself, felt about her weight gain and allegedŽ lack of discipline, she realized that, on some levels, she agreed with many of Jerrys com-plaints. She was mortified that she had put on the pounds and was highly critical of herself for not having a better routine. She carried deep scars from a childhood where she was not treated kindly, and had spent much of her adult life feeling self-critical and ashamed. She focused on what she believed were flaws and rarely felt worthy to treat herselfŽ with extravagances. It was, therefore, difficult for Ellen to assert herself in many areas of her life without feeling tremendous guilt and fear. She was worried that her relationship with Jerry could not tolerate a discussion of their differences. With effort and purpose, Ellen discovered she could take steps to demonstrate that she is, in fact, quite accomplished and has many attributes she can be quite proud of. This eventually helped her, not only to believe in herself, but to stand up for herself in a much more confident way. Being able to speak assertively in a way that is not hostile or antagonistic will remain a challenge. It may be intimidat-ing to clearly tell Jerry that she has been feeling criticized and judged and would appreciate it if he would be more posi-tive and supportive to her. If she has the courage to do so, it may ultimately have a tremendous impact on her self-esteem. It would be important for Ellen to see if Jerry begins to understand how hurtful his attitude has been and if he is truly open to respecting her feelings. If he continues to relate in a disdainful way, it may be necessary to reiter-ate how painful and upsetting his criticism has been, and that she expects him to stop. It may take some time to make sustainable changes in their relationship. However, if the two of them are to nurture a truly loving and close relationship, it will be important for Jerry to acknowledge that his judgments have been hurtful and to demonstrate that he will be respectful going forward. It would be a further step to open up a dialog with Jerry to understand why he has been so focused on her weight. If she can listen carefully to what has been bothering him, and communicate that she will participate in a respectful conversa-tion, (but not in one where she feels put-down), she may gain better insight into her husband. Jerrys critical, superior attitude may be a cover for insecurities not only about his own self worth, but also about the appearances the two present to the out-side world. It may bolster a shaky ego to be in a one-up position with his wife, maintaining a relationship where she defers to him, and he is in charge. Over time, Ellen might or might not be open to discussing the struggles she is having with her weight, but ultimately this is a task that is hers to address on her own. Ironically, if she could trust Jerry to react to her without judgment, she might be inclined to enlist his support. It may be unsettling, at first, for this couple to adjust to a relationship where Ellen is comfortable speaking up and the two of them relate on a more equal footing. It requires a willingness to learn new things about themselves and each other. However, if they can ultimately create a climate of trust and security, they may both discover that these changes can be enormously gratifying.

Trust yourself to honestly give your sideIt should come as no surprise to anyone that high net-worth donors and their trust-ed tax and financial advisers are a critical element toward ensuring long term chari-table investment in our communities. The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties is an important part-ner in that process because we are a center of knowledge for opportunities for giving. We offer a variety of charitable avenues for giving now and in perpetuity that are tax smart, professionally managed, and accom-plished with integrity and the accountabil-ity characterizing the very highest stan-dard of ethical stewardship. Our mission as a charitable institution is in service to promoting philanthropy and investing in communities locally. However, we provide flexibility toward accomplishing a donors charitable goals, and flexibility is an asset toward encouraging a culture of giving, no matter the place or the cause. With an economic recession in full bloom and deep worry about the implications for both giving and receiving charitable gifts, the Community Foundation is gathering intelligence about the status of nonprofits in our own backyards, and also tracking numerous studies on the impact of the economic recession on philanthropy more broadly. We sponsored this past week, in association with Bank of American Mer-rill Lynch (BAML), an event featuring a presentation and review of findings of the BAML 2010 Study of High-net-worth Phi-lanthropy. David Ratcliffe, managing direc-tor and head of U.S. Trust Philanthropic Solutions Institutional Sales, presented the findings before a packed room of nonprofit leaders from throughout the region. Nonprofits came to learn more about high-net-worth donors, what motivates their philanthropy, what drives their expec-tations for non-profit performance, and why they may increase or stop writing checks. Traditional private and public sources are drying up that fund non-profit activities. The incentive is high to find alternatives for shoring up existing sources of charitable capital and also attract new donors. The event provided non-profit staff an opportunity to better understand high-net-worth donor attitudes and behav-iors and get a better read on what moti-vates their impulse for giving. There was some good news in the study that high net-worth households havent stopped giving. The pattern of current giving is similar to donation levels as far back as 2005. A whopping 98 percent of wealthy households donated to charities in 2009, and slightly more than half of those households sustained giving to organizations that had earned their loyalty and trust, despite the economic recession. The proportion of giving as a percentage of income was also sustained at fairly steady levels in 2009, with high net-worth families contributing slightly more than 9 percent of their income to charity, a little less than the approximate 11 percent in 2007. What has changed, according to the study, is that wealthy families are weighing more carefully the dollar amounts being given to charitable causes, with an overall decline in the average size of gift amounts trending downward by 35 percent from amounts recorded in 2007, after adjusting for inflation. Some causes fared better than others and some organizations actu-ally experienced increases in the average amount of the gifts received from high-net-worth donors but there were few locals at the meeting reporting anecdotally they had been the beneficiary of such gratuities. While there are few surprises in the study, one shoe waiting to drop is whether high net-worth families will have as much incentive to give if the charitable deduction goes on the chopping block when Congress reconvenes to consider budget issues. Says the report, In a shift from the previous studies, wealthy households reported being more sensitive to the effect of tax policy on their giving. About two-thirds (67 percent) of wealthy households would somewhat or dramatically decrease their charitable contributions if they received zero income tax deductions for their donations; 47 percent responded this way in 2007. If the estate tax were repealed, 43 percent of wealthy households would somewhat or dramati-cally increase the amount they leave to charity in an estate plan, compared to 36 percent in 2007.Ž The non-profit sector has already been transformed by the realities of an eco-nomic recession but elimination of the charitable deduction is a game changer, especially now that so many charities are serving as first responders to meet urgent needs of those increasingly abandoned to foreclosure, job loss, unemployment, and a bleak economy. If you are not paying atten-tion to this issue, you should be. It could be a tipping point for philanthropy from which there will be no return.

The youngsters were all packed and ready to go on the morning of Sept. 2, but the trip was cancelled hours before they were set to depart. When the trip was called off for the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office pro-gram called Kids and Police Tennis Asso-ciation (KAPTA), Ibis Golf and Country Club tennis director Chuck Gill started making calls. I just thought that with a few local pros volunteering their time, we could give these kids a tennis day to ease their disappointment,Ž said Mr. Gill. Reaching out to Trish Faulkner, the tennis director at Ballenisles, the two pros were able to get area tennis pros to help out. The next day, there were 35 little smiling faces, swinging rackets at Ibis Coun-try Clubs upscale tennis facility, enjoying a day of skill clinics, refreshments and a hot-shot tennis exhibition. Ira Pescowitz, a USTA tennis pro and deputy sheriff, formed KAPTA to give higher risk kids a chance to learn the sport. He was thrilled that so many pros answered the call to action on a days notice. These kids were crushed yester-day when we couldnt fly out, but thanks to the loyalty and friendship of so many, they still got their tennis day at this beau-tiful club,Ž said Mr. Pescowitz. The Ibis community is a secure, gated collection of 33 distinctly different neigh-borhoods, located on the edge of northern West Palm Beach and just minutes from the heart of the city. Ibis Golf & Coun-try Club offers 54 holes of golf on three renowned Nicklaus golf courses, and a 55,000-square foot clubhouse featuring dining areas from casual to formal. The Ibis tennis center features 14 Hydrogrid clay courts with night lights, and a world-class USPTA-certified instructional staff that offer regular clinics, team play, junior programs, social events, competitive tournaments and personal instruction. Ibis members enjoy a variety of Ibis ten-nis activities including Ibis Mens Social Doubles, the Ibis Ladies Drill, the Ibis Tennis Beginners Clinic and Ibis Ten-nis Tots. The recently refurbished Ibis Tennis Pro shop features the latest in racquets, equipment, foot wear and ten-nis apparel.

BY SEAN COCHRANE Im often asked by people as to what changes they should make “rst when they embark upon a greeningŽ of their home or workplace to save on power bill and to help the environment. This question can become tougher to answer when posed by someone on a tight budget. Lets face it: those who can least afford todays rising power bills need to make these changes the most. This is a logical question, especially when we are so bombarded by advertising and press articles about the virtues of going green, buying solar panels to create power, and using Green Wise, Energy Star or green-certi“ed products. So what does it all mean? In reality, not everybody is able to place “ve or six kilowatts of solar panels on their roof due to home orientation or if one lives in an apartment. However, home and business owners new incentive programs from the likes of FP&L, along with state and federal rebates/tax credits, can offset around half of the product cost! So, solar panels and wind turbines are now de“nitely worth looking into for those wishing to create their own power and never worry about rising energy prices again. However, what do you do if you rent your home or live in an apartment where solar power panels are not a practical solution? The short answer is start smallŽ and as the old adage goes, Look after the pennies and the dollars will follow.Ž Lets start with the low-hanging green fruit and go for the easy green changes that can be made simply. Some of these changes can even be implemented by those who are renting! Switch electrical items off at the power board or unplug them altogether when not in use to reduce vampire power drain.Ž Just like vampires leach blood, appliances that are left plugged in can drain as much power per year as the actual device uses when it is activated. Culprits include phone chargers, clothes washers, tumble dryers, VCRs, DVD players and computers. For example, an average microwave is used for less than 10 minutes per day, but vampires standby power lasts for 23 hours and 50 minutes each day. Solution: unplug or use power strips. This alone can save an average household up to $112 a year. For businesses, this “gure can be multiplied, depending upon the number of electrical items drawing standby power. Change out incandescent light bulbs to compact ”uorescents (CFLs) or, better still, light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Think about it. If an average home replaced 20 to 40 100-watt incandescent bulbs with 10to 30-watt LED or CFL lights, bills would be cut by approxi-mately 70%! Prices for these products have become quite affordable of late, and can be taken with you if you move. Savings have been shown to be dramatic in some households. Modern tubular skylights can easily halve a lighting bill. At home, kitchens, laundries, studies, and all dark areas bene“t from natural light brought in by skylights. Well-lit buildings not only save energy and money, but also appear larger and more inviting. If your building is not already insulated, or if you have less than R38 insulation (12 inches thick), it is time to upgrade. Extra batts can easily be “tted over the top of existing ceiling insulation, or spray foam can be retro“tted in some cases. (Rebates and incentives are available on these as well, so its worth looking into.) The savings made on heating and cooling bills will often repay the outlay within a year or two.

For 48 years it has been the little museum that could. But this time, could Tequestas Lighthouse ArtCenter be on the verge of making it big?

Palm Beach Gardens ? Call Marsha Grass, Resident I know the community. I live the lifestyle.Ž … Marsha Grass FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2011 I wandered through the bookstore on a recent weekday evening, imagining I might explore a highbrow topic, some-thing to expand my cultural horizons. Instead I ended up paging through a fash-ion advice book, one with two exclama-tion marks in the title: I Have Nothing to Wear! A Painless 12-Step Program to Declutt er Your Life So You Never Have to Say This Again!Ž The books authors offer a handful of user-friendly tips. They encourage read-ers to find a fashion sponsor, someone who will honestly evaluate their existing outfits, and they suggest pinpointing a personal style. All of their advice is centered on the wise but difficult to implement theme that every outfit should be a 10, i.e., the sort of ensemble you wouldnt be ashamed to be wearing if you bumped into your old flame. Or worse, your old flames new flame. Every outfit?Ž I asked aloud. Who can manage that? Sure, we might have a going-out dress that feels like a 10. We might even have a pair of jeans that when matched with a special top „ the top that we keep at the back of the closet and treat to dry cleaning and special handling „ that looks like a 10. But every single outfit? Every single outfit, the authors say. That includes weekend wear, gym wear and, yes, loungewear. Heres the thing about loungewear: When Im home, I go for optimal com-fort. Bulky sweat pants. Hooded sweat-shirts. T-shirts. Socks. I own an arsenal of anti-sex apparel. If I took this recent bit of fashion advice, my for-private-viewing-only out-fits would have to go, replaced by sweat-ers that havent pilled, shirts that are nicely pressed and pants that fit just right. Clothes, in essence, that have not been lived in. In fact, this balance between living and looking nice is one of the elements of long-term relationships I find most perplexing. The best relationships are performance art, but how do we con-stantly perform with no time away from the lights? When Im home alone, without a man to impress, I like to burrow down, to surrender all efforts at prettiness. In brighter moments, I think of myself as a flower bulb „ a tulip, perhaps, or a lily „ some blossom thats tak-ing the season off, hibernating until the next appearance. In my darker moments, I think of myself as a turnip. But either way, bulb or root vegetable, Im a firm believer that we need these restorative moments, swaddled in sweatpants. The problem is that when were cohabitating, we never have a down moment. Theres little time to slip into our grubby at-home selves. If every outfit in our closet is a 10, then we spend most of our mental energy making sure we dont dump dinner in our laps. Which is why many couples abandon the pretense of at-home good looks and settle instead into a routine of beat-up undershirts and holed socks. But this is not the solution, either. Surely there is a middle ground between a perfect 10 and a zero-effort approach. The trick is finding that style, even if it means never revealing our tur-nip selves. Q The turnip takes over SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS j artis HENDERSON “When I’m home alone, without a man to impress, I like to burrow down, to surrender all efforts at prettiness.”


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15-21, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A25 1900s „ before the Internet, before television, before radio „ circus post-ers spread the word that the show was on its way. To build anticipation, the posters would appear in advance in store windows, on fences and sides of buildings. The promoters had to fill colossal canvas citiesŽ that held up to 12,000 people, Ms. Walk explains. Months before the arrival of the circus, you would get these waves of the bill posters coming in to announce: The circus is coming to town! The cir-cus is coming to town! And these are the wonders youre going to see! The circus was the traveling zoo,Ž she adds. It brought the wonders of the four corners of the globe to Americas doorstep.Ž The circus also introduced various inventions to small-town America: hot-air balloons, bicycles, skates, automo-biles. So many people saw electricity at the circus before they ever saw it on the streets of their town,Ž Ms. Walk says.Colorful historical documentsP.T. Barnum once said: Advertise freely and without fear. Never attempt to catch a whale with a minnow.Ž Circus posters were the key advertising tool for the circus owner. This col-orful, bombastic lithographic poster was critical to ensuring a capacity crowd,Ž Ms. Walk says. Every available space in a town could be covered.Ž A single sheet measured 28 by 24 inches, and posters could consist of just one sheet or dozens, which would very easily cover the side of a barn. Prior to the 1870s, a circus poster was basically a black and white piece, heavy with type. Lithographs came into use in the 1870s. Put the two next to each other, and it shows you the importance of color, the arching line. Theres much more drama than your typeset broadside that had been traditionally used,Ž Ms. Walk says. Considered valuable collectibles and works of art, many of these post-ers will be on exhibit in The Amazing American Circus Poster: The Strobridge Lithographing Company, 1878-1939Ž at The John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art from Sept. 17-Jan. 29. These are the original artifacts of the time, and theyre outrageous, just won-derfully outrageous,Ž Ms. Walk says. Theyre all based on the circus promoters vocabulary: The best, the larg-est, the most grandƒ. The greatest show on earth.Ž Ringling and the Cincinnati Museum of Art received a joint grant from the National Endowment for the Humani-ties for this exhibit. (Strobridge Litho-graphing Company was based in Cin-cinnati, where the exhibit first showed at the Cincinnati Museum of Art before coming to Sarasota.) What fascinated the reviewers of the grant was that we were looking at posters not just within the circus context, but in a cultural context,Ž Ms. Walk says. What do these posters tell us about the country at the time? It moves the poster from this ephemeral advertising to a really important his-torical document.Ž The posters reflect the advancement in transportation; earlier posters had more words and more complex images for pedestrians to peruse. Later ones had bigger, bolder, simpler images that could be easily comprehended when glimpsed from a moving trolley or car. The history of the womens movement can also be tracked in the posters. Women were not part of the performance until the 1880s,Ž Ms. Walk says. All of a sudden, you can see women being pulled out as the stars in these posters.Ž She mentions a beautiful post-er of the acrobat Lillian Leitzel, looking straight at you with a sultry look.Ž In 1895, the year the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus had a woman ringmaster as well as Evetta, the only lady clown, A newspaper article said, Women are taking over the ring!Ž Ms. Walk says. Women moved very quickly into performance,Ž she adds. Women performers were very supportive of suffragettes and getting women to vote.Ž Circus posters promoted everything from daredevil acts to animals and peo-ple from all over the world. They made the shows so appealing that people just had to go „ either for the first time, or again and again. John Ringling said (the circus) allowed people to be a child again, or see the world through a childs eyes,Ž says Ms. Walk.Sideshow actsThe exhibit includes sideshow posters of people who possessed unusual talents, such as swallowing swords, or unusual characteristics, such as multiple tattoos or extreme height. We have an incredible poster of the snake charmer,Ž Ms. Walk says. Then theres Charles the First, the Marvelous Chimpanzee. Thats an inter-esting one, because of the Scopes Trial and Darwinism. Here this chimpanzee is dressed in a tuxedo, blurring that line. One newspaper article said, There is the spark of the divine (in him.)Ž Also included in the exhibit are posters of aerialists. What the poster was able to do (was) freeze action, so you have these wonderful arching bodies twisting in this wonderful 12-sheet poster. Then there are the human butterflies „ the iron jaw acts, who (dangle and) hold themselves up by their teeth. There are a lot of daredevilsƒ Zazel, the Beautiful Human Cannonball, soared for more than 97 feet in the air and was paid the high sum of $300 a week in the 1880s.Ž Then theres the poster everyone seems intrigued by: the one advertising Hillary Long. He roller skated on his head, as well as walked down stairs on his head,Ž Ms. Walk says. Hed bounce down the stairs on his head. How did he ever come up with that act? How do you think of something like that? Only at the circus.Ž Q CIRCUSFrom page 23 The John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Arts Circus Museum in Sarasota is about to have 24,475 more square feet of fun, in a $7.5 million addition set to open Saturday, Sept. 24. Admission to the Circus Museum is free that day. The addition adjoins the Tibbals Learning Center, which houses the worlds largest miniature circus, cre-ated by Howard Tibbals. The new section looks at the history of performers and those who have electri-fied the center ring,Ž says circus histo-rian Deborah Walk, curator of the Tib-bals Learning Center. Performers such as high-wire walker Karl Wallenda and aeri-alist Dolly Jacobs, Queen of the Air,Ž are highlighted in photos and video clips. One interactive exhibit will let visitors to see whether they can squeeze into the 2-by-3-foot space of a miniature car. Clown Lou Jacobs, who was over 6 feet tall, somehow could fold his body into the car. He was a front bender,Ž says Ms. Walk, explaining that contortionists are either front benders or back benders, meaning they can bend forwards or backwards. Another exhibit will allow people to try walking on a tightrope just inches off the ground. But when you look down, it looks as if youre 30 feet up in the air,Ž Ms. Walk says. Visitors will also be able to superimpose their faces onto replicas of circus posters. Its a lot of fun,Ž Ms. Walk adds. And theres a lot of information about the people who have created the magic of the circus.Ž Q The Circus Museum gets bigger and betterRINGLING MUSEUM AND HOWARD TIBBALS COLLECTION/COURTESY IMAGESAbove: P.T.

LATEST FILMS ‘Warrior’ dan HUDAK O www.hudakonhollywood.comSports movies are rarely so good that they make me want to stand up and cheer, but WarriorŽ did just that. It also made me cry. This is a powerful, heartbreaking story about two estranged brothers who were torn apart as children but are now on a collision course to fight out years of anger with a $5 million purse on the line. In Pittsburgh, Tommy (Tom Hardy) returns home to ask his newly sober father, Paddy (Nick Nolte), to train him for an upcoming Mixed Martial Arts tournament. No emotions, no talking, just training, Tommy, a former wrestling prodigy, tells Paddy. Given that he hasnt seen his son in 14 years and yearns to make up for the abusive alcoholic sins of his past, Paddy agrees. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Tommys brother Brendan (Joel Edgerton) works as a schoolteacher and lives with his wife (Jenni-fer Morrison) and children. Hes happy, but the family is broke and the only way to avoid foreclosure is for Brendan to fight again. With the reluctant help of his old friend/trainer Frank (Frank Grillo), he gets a shot. You dont have to know anything about MMA to enjoy the fight scenes, so unfamiliarity with the sport should not be a deter-rent. And while many of the training and fighting scenes are fairly standard, director Gavin OConnor does a great job of giving each fight importance by emphasizing the incredible physical toll each battle has on its competitors. Of course, none of this would matter if we didnt care about the brothers, but boy, do we ever. Tommy and Brendan havent spoken in 14 years, but Mr. Hardy and Mr. Edg-erton (a Brit and an Australian, respec-tively) play the afflicted All-Amer-ican boys perfectly. Whereas Mr. Edgerton has to be grounded and desperate, Mr. Hardy carries years of anger and resentment as Tommy, which makes Tommy so hard and unfeeling that hes a brute amongst men. Also note the utter distain with which Tommy looks at Paddy, and then later the way Mr. Nolte brings fierce intensity to Pad-dys relationship with Tommy. This is great, great acting in a story of tremendous pain. So how good are Mr. Hardy and Mr. Nolte? Both deserve Oscar nominations. This is one of the best films of the year.

PALM BEACH GARDENS DOWNTOWN AT THE GARDENS561.340.2112 t RASUSHI.COM 5)634%":r4&15t1.o$-04& SO LONG SUMMER PARTY There is an image by West Palm Beach photographer Tony Arruza, who exhibits in shows around the world. There is a photograph of these young children walking in front of a mural. And when you first see it, it looks like a painting and then you realize there are children in front of it. Its an optical illusion,Ž Ms. Deits says. She is especially pleased that Worth Avenue gallery owner Holden Luntz judged the works in the exhibition. Hes so well known. He does art shows all around the world. Hes very respected. Hes top of the line,Ž Ms. Deits says, adding, One thing I try to do for our artists is to have gallerists and curators from muse-ums „ people artists would like to have notice their work. He will be here for the awards ceremony, so its a wonderful opportunity to meet a legend in the busi-ness.Ž If the photography exhibition is a large show, then Le Petit ArtŽ is decidedly small in scale. The show contains 53 small paintings and drawings by Ted Matz, who also is an instructor at the ArtCenters School of Art. Hes one of our most popular instructors. He teaches watercolor, acrylic oil and drawing for the terrified and the not so terrified,Ž Ms. Deits says. You just feel creative when youre around him and I think it translates into his art.Ž And what about that art?He has watercolors, oil paintings, pastels and beautiful drawings, land-scapes and still lifes, she says. Most of the landscapes are local but he has some from up North, where he goes to teach during the summer.Ž An added bonus: All of the works are for sale, and part of the proceeds ben-efit the ArtCenter. Mr. Matz first painted the small-scale works because many of his students wanted to own one of his paintings but could not them. Pieces are only $200, which is incredible,Ž Ms. Deits says. Smaller piec-es are really nice because they can fit in to smaller places in the home or in a grouping.Ž They also show Mr. Matzs teaching philosophy. He thinks it is good for students to paint these small pieces,Ž Ms. Deits says. He thinks students get handi-capped by thinking that every time they paint they have to paint a masterpiece.Ž One show in which Ms. Deits expects to see a masterpiece or two is SoFlo Ceramics Invitational Exhibition,Ž which showcases the works of South Florida ceramics artists and instruc-tors. Years ago, ceramics was just considered a craft. But in the last 30 years it has come about, just as photography has come about, and its now consid-ered a fine art. Were showing the artis-tic qualities of ceramics,Ž she says. It doesnt hurt that the ArtCenter is continuing to develop a ceramics pro-gram of its own at its School of Art. We have a terrific ceramics department at the art school, with several different types of kilns,Ž Ms. Deits says. And Justin Lambert, the head of our department, is internationally known for his work in atmospheric firing.Ž Ceramics offers its artists an opportunity to work in three dimensions. Its such an interesting field. I started out as a 2D artist „ drawing and photography,Ž Ms. Deits says. But ceramics offers a 3D experience. It combines all the media into one. You can even put photographs into ceram-ics. Its an extremely diverse medium. You can add glass and other materials to it. You can combine ceramics with mixed media.Ž Working in ceramics can be core to improving an artists work, she says. Working in three dimensions also makes an artist better because it adds that feeling of depth and helps you understand form better,Ž Ms. Deits says. Im really pleased that I can add that.Ž Well, that, and a place to showcase the art.
