CH EM O Marshall Foundation names champions of the EvergladesI T COMES DOWN TO TH IS : THERE ARE WARR I ORS among us. Scrappers, punchers, brawlers, gladia tors. People who walk toward the fight when the hurting starts, not away from it, because they’re not willing to accept economic tyranny when lives are on the line. That takes grit of a kind Susan Kristoff displays every day now, as do Betty Keep, June Sach and Debbie Giardano, along with many others. Each woman suffers from breast cancer or some other gift of a mutant cell (the dauntless Mrs. Keep has a rare form of leukemia, for example). All share a single common conviction: Every cancer patient who can benefit from the relatively new oral chemotherapies — pills taken at home that target a variety of cancers — should. And none should be restricted by soaring costs that do not reflect the economic realities of producing and administering pill therapies. Together these fighters form a group of pa tients, medical professionals and advocates cham pioned in part by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, The Arthur R. Marshall Foundation has announced the recipients of the nonprofit organization’s Fourth annual Champion of the Everglades Awards: Palm Beach County Commissioner Karen Marcus, Charlie Peliz za of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Wildlife Refuge Association. “The Marshall Foundation is proud to spotlight individuals and organizations that have made an outstanding contribution toward Everglades restoration over many years,” said Nancy Marshall, president of the foundation. “Individually, each of our three Champions of the Everglades continue to inspire us for their extraordinary efforts on behalf of the River of Grass. But collectively, they have been instrumental in forging both popular and governmental support for reviving, restoring and preserving one of America’s greatest natural treasures.” The Marshall Foundation, which works for the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem, will pres ent the awards at its River of Grass Gala, Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Kravis Center for Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.

PAGE 2 FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS W EEK OF S E PT E MBER 29O CT OB ER 5, 2011 Each Christmas, my siblings and I would ask our Aunt Cleo why she went home to Georgia for the holidays. And each year, Cleo would answer that Granny was getting old, and that she wanted to spend as much time with her as possible. Cleo didn’t know the half of it. She should have died an old woman.That probably was her expectation.Her mother would live to be nearly 101 and her paternal grandmother had made it to nearly 90. But Cleo Douthit left us at 67.That’s the sadness of it all.Cleo was a marvel. She taught third grade for more than 40 years at Pahokee Elementary School. She was a good teacher, too — parents actually jockeyed to get their kids into her class. The little operettas through which she led those 8and 9-year-olds remain magical to those who heard them, sweet, piping voices singing along to Cleo’s piano accompaniment. Cleo never met a stranger, either.Her cheerful demeanor and volunteer spirit won her friends everywhere. She could go out to a restaurant or store anywhere from Palm Beach to Fort Myers and run into someone she knew. Cleo’s baked goods were not to be missed, and her needlework was tight and precise — I remember her knitting covers for wooden clothes hangers that our fam ily still uses. She was our paternal grandmother’s older sister. She had no children of her own, and had all but raised my dad. We were closer to her in many ways than we were to our own grandmother; by rights, I suppose she was our grandmother. Even the in-laws adored her — my mother’s family loved her cooking and cooed over her beautiful complexion. She was effervescent — I can still hear her laughter. And then she was gone. It went something like this:In the spring of 1969, her husband, Bob, was dying of esophageal cancer. He stumbled as she and Granny helped him walk across the living room. They caught him, but she noticed a painful lump in her breast after breaking his fall. He died that May and after the funeral, Cleo went to her physician, who examined the lump, performed a needle biopsy, and later called to tell her to check into Good Samaritan Hospital for a mastectomy. She had the mastectomy and under went weeks of cobalt treatments. The surgeons also removed her lymph nodes and stripped the muscle from the insides of her arm. She recovered and returned to teaching. Two years later, doctors discovered another lump. Cleo underwent a second mastecto my and emerged scarred but optimistic. More cobalt treatments followed, and she retired from teaching at the end of the next school year. That didn’t slow her down. Cleo had a blast dur ing her retirement, trav eling with her friend Tommie Lee DuBose, visiting relatives, work ing as a pink lady at Everglades Memo rial Hospital, helping to start Pahokee’s Fun After Fifty Five Club and teaching Sunday school. She also helped raise money for the American Cancer Society, going from door to door soliciting donations. She carefully chose clothing to hide the scars that ran like railroad tracks up the insides of her arms and across her chest. Cleo tried not to think about the cancer, but it was a specter that followed her. It was only natural that when her hip started to ache, she was scared. Body scans turned up nothing — no sign of cancer, the doctors said. It was arthritis, they said. Take aspirin. Then Cleo developed a dry cough and started getting winded as she climbed the stairs of her home in Pahokee. The doctors diagnosed her with a faulty heart valve, the result of rheumatic fever as a child. They told her she needed open-heart surgery, an even bigger ordeal in 1978 than it is today. But before the surgery could be per formed, there was the matter of suspi cious cells — were they cancer or were they the result of scarring from all that radiation she had undergone? Never mind the clear scans a year before. Her oncologist’s solution was to place her on chemotherapy and more radia tion. Cleo’s hair fell out and she became violently ill. For a time, she turned bitter. How could God allow all these horrible things to happen to someone who had led such an exemplary life? And then my grandmother took her on a last-ditch trip to M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where doctors told her they didn’t think the cancer ever had metastasized, and that the chemotherapy had further weakened her heart. The damage was done. Cleo’s radiation-scarred lung had col lapsed. Doctors took her in for surgery to repair the heart valve, but her kidneys failed and she died on June 11, 1979. Cancer doesn’t just eat away at the patient. It slowly works its way into the psyches of a patient’s family, often turning them against themselves and each other. My great-grandmother, 91 at the time of Cleo’s death, outlived her daughter by nine years. Granny, always plainspoken, took every opportunity to remind my grandmother that no matter what she did, Cleo could have done it better. For her part, my grandmother grew bitter. She never recovered from the grief and turned inward, becoming nearly reclusive at times. That eventually turned into dementia. The rest of us sought solace in memo ries, and vowed that no one we knew ever would die that way again. We pray that continues.

PAGE 4 FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 5, 2011 You could tell Rick Perry was going to be a big problem for Mitt Romney as soon as the Texas governor started blowing him kisses. Asked a question on his first campaign leg about a Romney talking point, Perry brushed it off with a smooch and said, Send him my love.Ž It was classic Perry „ audacious, a little gauche and entertaining as hell. Surely, Romney didnt get blown many right back atchaŽ kisses in the offices of Bain Capital or during his time as Massachusetts governor. The message was that Romney was about to get a challenge from a competitor less polite and earnest than erstwhile candidate Tim Pawlenty. With Perrys entry in the race, the Republican presidential battle got the adrenaline shot it lacked. Republican primary voters had been yearning for a big combative personality. They flirted with Donald Trump while he flirted with them, and briefly bestowed their favor on the energetic and mediagenic Michele Bachmann. But Perry has filled the void in full. Hes a current officeholder and not a former something-or-other. He has a view of the world exactly counter to the presidents. He evidently has an allergy to nuance. And he campaigns with a relish that none of the other candidates can match. There is no substitute for a politician enjoying himself, and out on the hustings, Perry acts as if noth-ing could possibly please him more than shaking another hand or slapping another back. Even during the debates, where his performances have been uneven, Perry has usually been loose and confident. He never shies from a fight, and (most of the time) seems to enjoy them. He laughs easily. No one would vote to elect him to the Oxford Union, but if it somehow happened, hed have a heck of a time exchanging frank views with the fellas.Ž What were about to see is if these qualities of Perry „ call it his hoss-nessŽ „ are enough for him to become the durable front-runner in the Repub-lican nomination fight. He can go a long way just by demonstrating hes a fighter in the mold of a Sarah Palin or a Donald Trump. That means making the occasional incendiary comment, never apologizing, earning the hatred of the elites and not sweating the details. All of this, Perry has nailed. Tellingly, his weakest moments in the debates have come when hes been attacked from the right and cant fight back with brassy, crowd-pleasing one-liners. Hes made uncomfortable by his streak of pragmatism as Texas gover-nor. For all his self-portrayal as an antigovernment purist, hes adept at mar-shaling and using power. When he says hes pro-business, hes not kidding. Republicans will have to quickly drop the phrase crony capitalismŽ from their vocabulary if hes the nominee. In this year of populist discontent, the blunt outsider Rick Perry has a natural call on the Republican heart. The ques-tion is whether he can maintain enough appeal over time to the Republican mind, which will eventually calculate the odds of a prospective nominee van-quishing the incumbent. Whether Perry makes it or not, hell never be dull. If success were solely a matter of animal spirits, hed be a lead-pipe cinch. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Yet 2,000 people did occupy Wall Street last Saturday. They weren't carrying the banner of the tea party, the Gadsden flag with its coiled snake and the threat Don't Tread on Me.Ž Yet their message was clear: We are the 99 percent that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the one percent.Ž They were there, mostly young, protesting the virtually unregu-lated speculation of Wall Street that caused the global financial meltdown. One of New York's betterknown billionaires, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, commented on the protests: You have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs. Thats what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here.Ž Riots? Is that really what the Arab Spring and the European protests are about? Perhaps to the chagrin of Mayor Bloomberg, that is exactly what inspired many who occu-pied Wall Street. In its most recent communiqu, the Wall Street protest umbrella group said: On Saturday we held a general assembly, 2,000 strong. ... By 8 p.m. on Monday we still held the plaza, despite constant police presence. ... We are building the world that we want to see, based on human need and sustain-ability, not corporate greed.Ž Speaking of the tea party, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has caused a continuous fracas in the Republican presidential debates with his declaration that the U.S.s revered Social Security system is a Penza scheme.Ž Charles Ponzi was the con artist who swindled thousands in 1920 with a fraudulent promise for high returns on investments. A typical Ponzi scheme involves taking money from investors, then paying them off with money taken from new investors, rather than paying them from actual earnings. Social Security is actually solvent, with a trust fund of more than $2.6 trillion. The real Ponzi scheme threatening the U.S. public is the voracious greed of Wall Street banks. I interviewed one of the Occupy Wall StreetŽ protest organizers. David Graeber teaches at Goldsmiths, Uni-versity of London, and has authored several books, most recently Debt: The First 5,000 Years.Ž Mr. Graeber points out that, in the midst of the financial crash of 2008, enormous debts between banks were renegotiated. Yet only a fraction of troubled mortgages have got-ten the same treatment. He said: Debts between the very wealthy or between governments can always be renegoti-ated and always have been throughout world history. ... Its when you have debts owed by the poor to the rich that suddenly debts become a sacred obliga-tion, more important than anything else. The idea of renegotiating them becomes unthinkable.Ž President Barack Obama has proposed a jobs plan and further efforts to reduce the deficit. One is a so-called millionaires tax, endorsed by billionaire Obama supporter Warren Buffett. The Republicans call the proposed tax class warfare.Ž Mr. Graeber commented: For the last 30 years weve seen a political battle being waged by the super-rich against everyone else, and this is the latest move in the shadow dance, which is completely dysfunctional economi-cally and politically. Its the reason why young people have just abandoned any thought of appealing to politicians. We all know whats going to happen. The tax proposals are a sort of mock populist gesture, which everyone knows will be shot down. What will actu-ally probably happen would be more cuts to social services.Ž Outside in the cold Tuesday morning, the demonstrators con-tinued their fourth day of the pro-test with a march amidst a heavy police presence and the ringing of an opening bell at 9:30 a.m. for a peoples exchange,Ž just as the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange is rung. While the bankers remained secure in their bailed-out banks, outside, the police began arresting protesters. In a just world, with a just economy, we have to wonder: Who would be out in the cold? Who would be getting arrested?„ Amy Goodman is the host of "Democracy Now!," a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 900 stations in North America.

NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATERisky business models Q Orlando-area cosmetic surgeon Jeffrey Hartog inaugurated Liquid Gold, a storehouse for pa tients frozen liposuctioned fat, charging $900 to safekeep a coffee-cup-sized portion and $200 per year storage (in case the fat is needed later, as for smoothing facial wrinkles). A Massachusetts General Hospital phy-sician shook his head, telling the Orlando Sentinel, (F)rozen fat doesnt hold up as well as fresh fat.Ž Q German biochemist Peer Bork told the journal Nature in September that he and his partners built the nonprofit social network so that people with similar stomach bacteria can commiserate over diet and gastrointesti-nal woes. The $2,100 signup fee includes a full gut-bacteria sequencing. Q Fine points of the lawQ In August in Lubbock, Texas, Carl Wade Curry, 44, was sentenced to 99 years in prison for cattle rustling. (Said one of the victims, Curry tried to be a smooth-talking, handshake-dealing cat-tle seller, but he wasnt capable.Ž) Q In Jackson, Minn., in March, Andrew Espey was sentenced to 90 days in jail for improperly shingling the roof of his house. Complained Espey, (A) drunk can drive down the highway and get a lot less (of a sentence).Ž (He had affixed new shingles without first removing the old ones.) Q The continuing crisisQ Motorist Clyde White of Corbin, Ky., was charged with attempted mur-der in August after police finally col-lared him following a road-rage chase that reached speeds of over 100 mph. White, who had repeatedly rammed his two siblings in their vehicle, is 78 years old, and in that other vehicle were his brother, 82, and his sister, 83. Q According to a recent report from Britains Office of National Statistics, there are 297,000 households in the country in which no adult has ever held any kind of job. The number of individuals who thus may never have developed the habit of work,Ž and who instead have grown accustomed to the countrys generous welfare payments, might total 700,000. (In an example cited by the Daily Mail, one such couple in their late 30s, and their children, earnŽ the equivalent of almost $1,100 per week in income sup-port and disability payments.) Q Chicago massage therapist Liudmyla Ksenych, testifying for the prosecu-tion in August in a sex-trafficking trial, happened to notice from the witness stand that the defense lawyer, Douglas Rathe, was formerly a client of hers. The judge immediately declared a mistrial. Mr. Rathe later said he visited Ms. Ksenych four times in 2009 but that nothing inappropriateŽ happened. Q Redneck chroniclesQ Lon Groves, 40, was arrested in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., after a brief standoff with police in July following an incident in which he allegedly held a handgun to the head of his wife in an argument over which of their granddaughters was the wifes favorite. Pastor Daryl Riley of the New Welcome Baptist Church in St. Elmo, Ala., was tased, allegedly by the churchs music minister, whom Mr. Riley had just fired in August (which led another parishioner to pull a knife and begin stabbing wildly in a melee). Said the music ministers mother, He done cut (me) before anything started.Ž Q Bright ideasQ Alicia Bouchard, 41, was arrested in Jackson County, Fla., in August, accused of hatching a plot with her husband to impregnate a 12-year-old girl for the purpose of producing a baby that would eventually earn an additional welfare check. Q In August, the Japanese construction firm Maeda Corp. ordered its 2,700 employees to adopt standard, short hair-styles (a bobŽ for women with a longer fringe that could be swept to the side, and a routine short-back-and-sides cut for men with a slightly longer cut on top). Maeda said it was responding to the governments plea to reduce energy usage (less water, less hair dryer time). Q Oops!Q Larry Stone, jailed on property crimes in Tavares, Fla., because he could not make the $1,250 bail, posted the bond in July by earning $1,300 in tele-phone-company money after discover-ing a management error that credited his jail account $46 for every interna-tional call he pretended to make. (The company figured out the problem a day later and recovered all the payouts from the accounts of Mr. Stone and 250 other prisoners who had learned of the glitch. Mr. Stones bond was revoked, of course, and he was returned to lockup.) Q Betty Walker, allegedly firing at the pit bull that she saw lunging at some children, hit the dog with one shot and her husband, 53, with a second shot, kill-ing him (Jackson, Miss., July). Q Brent Bader, allegedly firing at the family dog, instead hit his wife once in the head, killing her (Twin Peaks, Calif., February). Q Samuel Campos, 46, allegedly firing to put away the family Chihuahua after having inadvertently wounded it the day before, instead hit his girlfriend, 41, kill-ing her (Willits, Calif., March). Q

Moving cats means keeping close tabs BY DR. MARTY AND MIKKEL BECKER Universal Uclick€ Dental disease affects an estimated 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats by the time they are 2 years old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Associa-tion. Dental problems are about more than bad breath and ugly teeth: Dental disease puts pets at risk for other complications, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and other life-threatening conditions. By the way: Dogs have 42 teeth, humans have 32 and cats have 30. € Veterinary students are more likely to struggle with depres-sion than are medical students. Kansas State University found that during the first year of veterinary school, 32 per-cent of veterinary stu-dents showed symptoms of depression compared to 23 percent of medical students. The majority of veterinary students are female, which could play a part in higher depression rates, since national studies show women are two to three times more likely to suffer from depression than are men. € The Guinness World Records 2012 Edition has named the dog with the longest ears.

The last time we moved, the dog was fine, but the cat went missing. We found her in our old neighborhood, but theres a freeway between the new place and the old this time. How can we keep her safe? „ via emailA: The best way to move with your cat is to confine him before and after moving day in a safe room.Ž Choose a room where your cat isnt going to be disturbed, and outfit it with food and water, a litter box, a scratching post, a bed and toys. Confining your cat not only reduces his stress, but also prevents him from slipping out, which is a danger at both the old home and the new. As youve experienced, your cat could eas-ily become scared, take off and get lost, even in his familiar neighborhood, if he gets disoriented. Your cat should be confined in his safe room the day before packing begins, moved to his new home in a carrier, and then confined again in his new safe room until the moving is over, the furniture arranged and most of the dust settled.Trying to force a scared and stressedout cat to do anything he doesnt want to do is hazardous to your health. After you arrive at your new home, dont pull your cat out of his carrier. Instead, put the carrier in his safe room, open the carrier door, and let him come out into the room when he wants to. After hes a little calmer, you can coax him out with some fresh food or treats if you want. But dont rush him and dont drag him out „ or you may be bitten or scratched.

BY SEANCOCHRANE So often we are faced with rising costs without any option other than to squeeze the budget tighter or go without some of those nice things that make life bearable. It seems every time we turn around, we are hit with another increase in utility power or gas prices, and lets not„for now„talk about gasoline prices! In Florida alone, between 2003 to 2009, electricity costs rose by 52% percent. On an annualized basis that means we are likely to see energy prices rise by at least 9% per year. (We saw much more than that with regard to gasoline prices in the past few years, with prices rising from about $2.50 to nearly $4.00 per gallon.) As a rule, when oil and gasoline pric-es rise, gas and electrical energy prices soon follow. For an aver-age household with an electricity bill of $250 per month, a rise of 9% could add $270 per year! Installing a solar power system (often called a Photo Voltaic or PV solar power system) can halt the impact of the price increases for many years to come. By generating electricity and being compensated for any surplus by your energy provider, you can help offset the impact of rising costs. Utilities such as FPL offer periods where they pay rebates to home and business owners of up to $2.00 per watt. This could net as much as $8,000 on a 4-kilowatt solar power unit. The next round of FPL rebates is set for October and or early next year. See FPLs web site at The Federal government also offers a 30% tax credit for solar power units “tted, which helps offset some of the cost. (Visit c=tax_credits.tx_index for more information.) The assistance programs on the 4-kilowatt solar power example could net a family around $14,000 in cash rebates and tax credits, which would offset around 60% of the cost of the system. The monthly energy savings could see the system pay for itself in “ve years or so. With a 25-year warrantee on the PV solar panels, how can you go wrong? When determining which system is right for your household, school or business, it is impor-tant to look at how much energy is being used, in order to deter-mine how much electricity you need to generate to offset your energy costs, and hopefully even create a surplus. Remember, not all systems are created equal, and you get what you pay for. Well-known, proven brand names with a reputation for solid after-sales service and backup„such as Canadian Solar, Schuco Sharp, LG and Suntech„may cost a few cents per watt more but tend to rate better over time. Inverters are a key component in the system as they convert the power into a usable format. Buying a PV solar power system is not the only way to reduce your energy costs. Replacing old energy-sapping items such as incandescent lights is a great option. Replacing electric hot water systems with solar or tank-less gas water heaters can save a bundle, as an average of 25% of most home energy bills goes to electric water heaters. FPL and FPU offer rebates for changing to these ef“cient water heaters, and the federal tax credits apply here as well. Visit www.getgas”.com/rebates/FPU.aspx or residential_swh.shtml.

PAGE 14 FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 5, 2011 one of the nation’s preeminent nonprofit organizations in the fight against breast cancer. Led by Ms. Kristoff, this week they’ve proposed a seemingly simple little bill for consideration by Florida’s elected leaders: the parity bill, as they call it. Legislating accessThe parity bill proposes that health in surance companies be required to cover as much of the cost for a prescribed chemotherapy taken by pill, at home, as they do for chemotherapy taken intrave nously, in a hospital or oncology suite. If a few supportive politicians agree, the bill can be presented for debate and a vote before the entire legislature at the new legislative session beginning Jan. 10, 2012 — only about 14 weeks away. “I started working on this two years ago, but the nature of the state is so conservative people didn’t think it was possible to pass this law,” recalls Ms. Kristoff, who carries not only the stage 4 breast cancer she’s been battling for eight years, but the title of state chair person of the Florida Public Policy Col laborative. “When I suggested it to Komen, they thought it was a long shot. Insurance companies have strong lobbies and Ko men thought none in the legislature would be interested in anything having to do with a mandate. But this isn’t a mandate.” No, it’s a parity bill, and only a pro posed bill at that. Eleven other state legislatures have passed similar legislative measures, and their governors have signed them into law. A simple pill, a world of differenceIt sounds simple enough. After all, the costs to produce chemotherapy pills that achieve as much or more success than intravenous chemo are not pro hibitive. Pills are used in targeted rather than broad assaults designed to kill can cer cells, which means fewer or different side effects. And even though pills may cost a little more to produce, say the ex perts, they save an ocean of currency on the back end, when it comes to adminis tering the therapies. With a pill, many patients can say goodbye to the sometimes-torturous chemo corrals that characterize tradi tional treatment. There, patients gather in reclining chairs surrounded by IV stands, drip bags of fluid, elaborate lines and monitors, the occasional sounds of retching from nearby bathrooms or cu bicles, and general suffering conducted under the attention of a medical staff that must always include an on-site doc tor and the administering nurses. None of it’s fun and some of it’s nearly in tolerable. “Oral is a tremen dous advantage,” says Dr. Charles Vogel, professor of clinical medicine in the Miller School of Medicine at the Uni versity of Miami, and director of the Women’s Center at the Sylvester Cancer Center, in Deerfield Beach. A breast cancer specialist, Dr. Vogel is using a team of young doctors and the treatment charts of about 5,000 patients to determine the minimum effective dose of one of the newest and most po tent treatment pills, Tykerb. That’s the name assigned by its pharmaceutical creator, GlaxoSmithKline. The generic name is Lapatinid. “The patient has fewer trips to the doctor, you don’t have to be using (in serted ports that are permanently main tained) which can get infected and clot. Most patients don’t have hair loss, some don’t have nausea and the vomiting as sociated with classical chemos. As a re sult, your oral medications are far better in the long run for quality of life,” Dr. Vogel says.So what’s the problem?“The problem is that the law lags be hind the technology,” says Ms. Kristoff. The problem is also the reality of the business: health insurance companies aren’t going to volunteer to pay out more unless they’re made to. They offer other reasons, too, says Alicia Paulino-Grisham, a disability in surance attorney and partner at the DILAW Group who is helping parity bill advocates create the language in the bill. Before the current fight, Ms. Paulino-Grisham took Su san Kristoff’s case pro bono when her insurance company, Cigna, refused to pay disability insurance even after Ms. Kristoff’s breast cancer spread to her hips, creating two holes that reached the bone and prevented her from walking comfortably or working, she notes. The two women admire each other and work well together, they say. “One of the reasons HMOs push back — and it shouldn’t be any of their busi ness — is that they say patients can’t be trusted to take the pills and scrutinize their own progress by themselves. “It’s the first time we’ve heard that ar gument — it was never introduced with diabetes or HIV medications (both of which can sometimes require relatively elaborate efforts by patients at home). “Who else but the patient has a great er interest in monitoring his or her own progress? So this argument is absurd.” Ironically, however, if insurance companies were to agree to pay out more for oral chemotherapy, it could benefit not only everybody else, but their own bottom lines as well, Ms. Kristoff argues. “In the overall big picture — when the cost of intravenous chemo is so much more — this is better for the insurance companies and the state (in such pro grams as Medicare),” she says, pointing to her own experience as an example. “My bill for one month of chemother apy is $47,000. But for my oral chemo, which is not covered completely and is equally as effective, the cost is $4,500. With that, though, you have a $3,000 co-pay, which I could not do without help.” Part of the problem arises because oral chemo pills are listed under phar maceutical coverage plans by insurance companies, not under the medical plans themselves. Thus, a trip to a chemo corral might require a co-pay for the insured patient of $20 to $50, which includes the che motherapy administered there intrave nously. But a prescription might require a co-pay of 50 percent.Heavyweight costs to individualsFor Debbie Giardano or Betty Keep or June Sach, the simple pill in the bottle can suddenly become the economic el ephant in the room. Mrs. Giardano, for example, went through surgery and traditional chemo therapy for her breast cancer and was then prescribed two pill medications, each costing $2,000 per month. Unfor tunately, her co-pay was 50 percent for each. “The pills don’t fall under the medical part of your health plan, they fall under the drug part of your health plan, which is totally different,” she told an NBC af filiate in Miami during a testimonial interview recently. “Until you need the drugs, who knows?” Now she’s whittled the costs of the life-saving pills down to a mere $700 per month, but to carry on with the lifesaving medicine, she and her husband had to eviscerate their small trucking transport business by selling the vehicles. Mrs. Keep, meanwhile, discovered she had a rare form of leukemia in Janu ary. She spent five weeks in the hospi tal taking arsenic and a new oral chemo called Tretinoan, then eventually went home with orders to continue taking the Tretinoin for at least a year. A widow unbowed and vital as she enters her ninth decade, she lives on a fixed income of about $1,700 per month. So the $736 bill for medicine was impos sible to shoulder without help from the Light Foundation of Southwest Florida, she says — one of a number of nonprof its that, like Komen, reach out to patients in similar circumstances. “Now, I can do anything I want. I live the way I want to,” she says cheerfully. For June Sach, a bright-as-broad-day 78-year-old aficionado of the “real” cure, she says — red wine and chocolate, of course — her breast cancer led to a taste not of the finer things in life, but of the massive disparity between costs to some patients and much lower costs for the same medicine to others. Not long after her diagnosis, she moved to New Jersey to be with her son and daughter-in-law, she says. She had surgery there, and her subsequent treat ment included a prescription for an oral chemotherapy pill. In the Garden State, whose legislators passed a version of the parity bill that went to Gov. Chris Christie for his signa ture on Sept. 25, Mrs. Sach paid $50 for 90 pills. But when she returned home to the Sunshine State and walked into the Target where she usually buys prescrip tions to replenish her supply, everything changed. “They said, ‘That will be $690.’ And I said, ‘No, I use the generic.’ And they said, ‘That is the generic.’” It was roughly the same price at Walmart, and even more at Costco when she phoned there, she says. Many are in the same boat. Unfor tunately, some do not get the financial assistance they require to pay for treat ment, with sometimes tragic results. While patients such as Mrs. Keep, Mrs. Sachs and Mrs. Giardano are offering their own testimonies throughout the autumn to politicians who will consider the parity bill, some don’t get that far. Ms. Kristoff lost a friend recently who could not afford the prescribed oral chemo for his lung cancer because he did not want to bankrupt his family, which included both his wife and chil dren, she says. So he chose to avoid the new medication, resorting instead to traditional chemotherapy. He also chose to join the fighters and advocates of parity. But while waiting to travel to Tallahassee to testify before a legislative committee about the prohibi tive costs of oral chemotherapy in Flori da, he passed away. “I had a background in legal research, and I got a lot of help, so I’m alive thanks to many,” Ms. Kristoff explains. “But the people who can’t navigate a complex system of rules and demands, and don’t have that kind of support, don’t get the drugs. And they don’t live to tell the tale.” Still, there are ways around the prob lem for Florida patients who can’t afford costly oral chemotherapies. They’re known as specialty pharmacies. “We had to jump through all sorts of hoops to try to figure out ways to get oral chemo covered by insurance,” ad mits Dr. Vogel, describing what he shoul dered as one of the responsibilities of his practice. “Finally, we discovered that there are specialty pharmacies that will take the onus off of us and fight the in surance companies. But before we found them, before they helped us get around the problem, it was a real issue.” His practice relies on a CVS Caremark mail order pharmacy in Miami, he says. Mrs. Sach, for example, relies on a similar business, the RxToGo Pharmacy, in Fort Myers. There are others, too, ac cording to caretakers. But that’s not going to help some people — and the new parity bill, as pro posed, leaves out Medicare patients and state employees “because they’re cov ered under their plans,” says Ms. Pauli no-Grisham. To what extent they’re covered re mains to be seen, notes Dr. Vogel. “It’s going to be a bigger issue in Medi care, because all of these new drugs are phenomenally expensive. I think there are some rulings that will require peo ple to pay 20 percent of the cost of the drugs. “It’s not a problem if you have to pay 20 percent of $10. But if you have to pay 20 percent of $10,000, it becomes much more difficult.” And the disparity in those costs could prove life threatening.

Turning that dream into an action, Palm Beach County health care provid-ers and organizations provide the latest advancements, educational information and funding for those who need help. To recognize October as a National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, non-profit organizations, hospitals, doctors and businesses promote awareness and raise money for research, support groups and the medically underserved. “We really encourage and support women to take charge and be proactive in their health,” says Penny Westberry, Susan G. Komen South Florida Affiliate executive director. “And we stress that breast health is an important compo-nent.” This year, non-profits bring a new weave of education, service and support for the community and those affected by breast cancer and their families. Knowledge is power. It is especially true when it comes to breast cancer. Therefore, one of the main goals for non-profit organizations this year is to provide community members with breast health education and increase the level of its understanding. One of these organizations is FORCEFacing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered. As of right now, FORCE is the only National non-profit organization devot-ed to hereditary breast cancer research. It is also the only one to provide heredi-tary breast cancer education. Amy Byer Shainman, FORCE outreach coordinator in Palm Beach County, says it is esti-mated that there are 1 million people in the U.S. with a BRCA-gene that causes breast and ovarian cancer but only about 10 percent of those people know they are affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. FORCE, in cooperation with Jupiter Medical Center, will launch a hereditary breast cancer educational lecture on Oct. 6. “I think it is huge and amazing what Jupiter Medical Center is doing to pro-vide people with an opportunity to get this information. I would consider them pioneers in terms of being a medical facility that actively provides aware ness about hereditary breast and ovar-ian cancer,” said Ms. Shainman. Other non-profit organizations, such as Susan G. Komen, focus on those already affected by this disease. This year’s main goal of the South Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen is to bring more knowledge of what breast cancer is to the community. According to Dayve Gabbard, director of finance and affiliate communica-tions of Susan G. Komen South Florida Affiliate, it is important to understand the risk factors. “The No. 1 factor to breast cancer is being a woman and getting older,” said Ms. Gabbard. To bring more awareness about the disease, the Susan G. Komen website,, offers download able educational material on breast health available to anyone interested. Also, to increase awareness, the South Florida Affiliate provides millions of dollars each year to research and educa-tional organizations. Along with providing essential education, non-profit organizations also are closely focused on service. Martha Gilmartin, unit executive director for the Palm Beach Affiliate of the American Cancer Society, says one of the most remarkable programs within the society is the “Road to Recovery.” The program is need-based and offers patients transportation to their medical facility. And the local affiliate provides those undergoing breast cancer treat-ments with free wigs, scarves and mas-tectomy bras along with other goods. Started four years ago at Susan G. Komen, the “Breast Health Navigators” program offers an opportunity for a can-cer patient to have an oncology nurse who guides a patient through the whole treatment process, from filling out the paperwork to helping to make a right treatment decision. Service is free for the patient and is paid with donations. Jupiter Medical Center is offering a wide array of new services to breast cancer patients. Opened in January, the Kristin Hoke Breast Health is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which makes it the first of its kind in Palm Beach County. To receive accreditation, the Kristin Hoke breast health program had to pass the NAPBC evaluation process. According to the program’s direc tor, Dr. John Rimmer, NAPBC has the highest standards for quality levels in the nation. While the Kristin Hoke program is focused on treatment, the other branch of Jupiter Medical Center, Margaret W. Neidland Breast Center, is focused on diagnosis. A June donation of $4 million by Suzanne Neidland De George and Law-rence F. De George has enabled the cen-ter to get cutting-edge improvements in the technology. Now two new mam-mography units have been added, along with two new ultrasound machines that are equipped with elastography. The new tomosynthesis unit allows imaging of dense breasts slice by slice, enabling early tumor detection. “The services that we are providing are unparalleled in the area and we are proud to have them,” said Dr. Mar-zieh Thurber, medical director of the Neidland center. Cancer treatment is a complex process and throughout the year, different non-profit organizations provide moral and material support through a variety of fund-raising events. The event that draws the most participants — the Susan G. Komen South Florida Affiliate Race for the Cure — is set for Jan. 28 in downtown West Palm Beach. Race organizers estimate there will be 30,000 participants. The race this year raised $1.8 million. The goal for 2012 is $2 million. Of the money raised, 75 percent stays locally and 25 percent goes to national research. Q BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Knowledge is power in the fight against breast cancer

PAGE 18 FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 5, 2011 EllenŽ knew it was wrong to not show up. Her daughter SaraŽ had so looked forward to this day. Ellen knew that helping Sara select a wedding gown should have been a special moment in both of their lives. In fact, Sara had made a special point of including Ellen, along with the grooms mother and the maid of honor. But Ellen was embar-rassed that she was not in a position to pay for the dress and could only make a paltry financial contribution to the wedding. The grooms parents were of means and were hosting the nuptials. Although she had not touched a drop of alcohol in 10 years, Ellen was still blaming herself for neglecting Sara dur-ing that horrible time when she had been drinking heavily. Ellen had been so caught up in her personal problems she had let her daughter largely fend for herself. It bothered Ellen that she lived from paycheck to paycheck, and hadnt been a better provider. She had worked hard to maintain her sobriety and had taken many steps to become accountable and to make amends. Sara had assured Ellen many times that she understood, and was proud of the steps her mother had taken. But Ellen could not forgive herself for let-ting Sara down. She had backed away from the festivities, feeling unworthy, ashamed and guilty. Ellens struggle with addiction was clearly a low point in her life. What would it take for her to truly forgive herself? Ellen had held herself up to an impossibly high standard and had trouble believing that the steps she had taken to improve her life would ever be sufficient to undo the damage she caused. Sara had clearly reached out to her mother to support her on this special day. She seemed willing to let go of any hurt or lingering resentments, but Ellens inability to forgive herself only served to further perpetuate the pain the two were feeling. Ellens shame kept her locked in an unreachable place, shutting her daughter out. Those of us with low self-esteem oftentimes keep ourselves stuck in a guilty, unworthy place. We have dif-ficulty believing we are entitled to be forgiven when we make genuine efforts to address our wrongs (even if the other person is ultimately unwilling to let it go.) Ellen clearly has had difficulty believing that she could be loved for herself. A persons worth is not mea-sured in their financial successes. Much more important are the ways we give from our hearts, something which can-not be measured in dollar signs. All of us have made mistakes at some time or other. We can learn a great deal from our disappointments and failings. When, in fact, a person has truly hurt another with their actions, the guilt they feel may be appropriate, and probably necessary. To accept responsibility for hurting others and to seek amends can be a tremendous healing process for all parties. And, there are important steps one can take to let go of the self-loathing and regret. Giving the other person the opportunity to speak openly about the pain, and remaining committed to supporting them going forward dem-onstrates a true willingness to forge a more responsive, mutual relationship. Guilt can be an important standard that helps us clarify a moral compass so we can stay on track and conduct ourselves in ways we feel good about. This guilt is actually healthy because it often guides us to behave in socially acceptable ways, and curbs an impulse to act out in a way that could have dire negative consequences. Excessive guilt can paralyze us and keep us stuck in a negative, immobilized place. While guilt may be a catalyst to focus on our behavior, shame empha-sizes what we believe is wrong in our-selves. This may unfortunately lead to a path where people turn inward with self-loathing. They may then be stripped of tools that would enable them to have any hope that life could be improved; or that they would ever be deemed worthy of acceptance by others. The irony is that holding onto guilt further intensifies the hurt, because the guilty person often retreats into an ashamed, shut-off place, further deny-ing the other warmth and consideration going forward. If Ellen takes steps to forgive herself, she might be able to stand tall and reach out to Sara in a more loving way. Sharing in the joy of this special occasion can prove to be a powerful bonding opportunity for mother and daughter.

She can be reached in her Gardens office at 630-2827, or at www. HEALTHY LIVING Stuck in a guilty place a t o E t f linda LIPSHUTZ O leslie LILLY President and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties O GIVING Looking a gift horse in the mouth Earlier this month, I took a refresher course on the fundamentals of fundrais-ing. You might think after 25 years in philanthropy one would be well-versed without the need for going back to school.Ž After all, if you are a fund-raiser and meet with measureable suc-cess of dollars raised, youre proven as a professional, right? How much is there to know about being an effective fundraiser? Arent tactics and technique 90 percent of the measure of your suc-cess in the craft? Well, no, not really. If you have ever read in the headlines about an incident when fundraising went wrong, then you know that pursuing charitable dollars in search of a cause requires a bridge built on a foundation of trust and integrity. Taint has a long life that follows epi-sodes of fundraising malfeasance and misbehavior. There can be disastrous consequences when trust and integ-rity are compromised to accomplish a result by a tortured path: reputations are destroyed, charities implode; and mis-appropriations are rank. At best, good intentions are squandered; at worst, pur-veyors of fraud and deceit walk through the door of innocence and plunder the community chest. Fundraising is a handmaiden to philanthropy, enabling those who give to connect with those who seek dollars in support of charitable causes. Givers are inspired to give because they care about a cause or issue. To achieve a successful union of giver with seeker is a journey of the heart and the mind. That which lies between is a river of human attitude and behavior to be crossed. The navigation, if it is to be successful, requires the constancy of a true north star. Ethical behavior and a climate sustaining best professional fundraising practices dont happen simply because good will is present. A culture of prac-tice that embodies these values, as well as builds the necessary skills, is a matter of professional commitment, training, and disciplined study, requiring life-long continuing education. The national organization in the U.S. that is a major resource for individuals engaged professionally in fundraising is the Association of Fundraising Profes-sionals. It represents more than 30,000 members in 225 chapters throughout the world, working to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education and certification programs. The associa-tion fosters development and growth of fundraising professionals and promotes high ethical standards in the fundraising profession.Ž This association has, for more than 50 years, carried the flag on behalf of professional code of ethics, behavior and practice in the field of fundraising. The association advances, through local chapters, continuing education events. It sponsors credentialing of fundraising professionals through a rigorous certifi-cation program requiring many hours of continuing education credits and inten-sive course work in preparation for a certification exam. The association takes their role seriously as they should. Much can go wrong in the exchange that occurs in seeking and receiving chari-table distributions. All those childhood entreaties „ trust, honestly, respect, the difference between right and wrong, your word as a contract and bond, doing well by doing good, learning to listen „ these are some of the same ingredi-ents that charac-terize the pro-fessional practices and behav-iors that AFP aspires to instill in fundraising as a code of conduct for its members. Today, philanthropy and fundraising are vocations that are highly professionalized and the respon-sibilities that each occupation demands substantial. The field attracts talented and gifted people whose values and passions are rooted in the definition of philanthropy as voluntary action for the common good,Ž a quote from a stan-dard text on fundraising fundamentals that is one of many training resources suggested for study by AFP. In these volatile times, the need for an AFP and organizations like it are crucial toward sustaining the quality of relationships upon which inspired giving is achieved. In this context, looking a gift horse in the mouth is a fundraising exercise in pursuit of fully understanding the donors motivation and purpose as a critical ingredient in the gift solicitation process. Nonprofits are struggling in an economic recession that has no end in sight. Fundraising has become extremely challenging in a highly competitive environment and fundraisers are under tremendous pressure to produce charitable revenue. It is good to know that in this economic climate, our communities have so many dedicated fundraising professionals in the nonprofit sec-tor who are leading, mentoring and coaching their peers to achieve and commit to a standard of excellence that is the AFPs mission.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 5, 2011 BUSINESS A21 you buy pink. we give green. Tervis supports “nding a cure for breast cancer research by donating 5% of sales of Tervis pink ribbon tumblers. the palm beach store 1201 U.S. Hwy 1, Suite 5 Just south of PGA Blvd 561.626.8324 MONEY & INVESTINGInvesting doesn’t have to be a rollercoaster rideLast week saw serious price declines in equities and precious metals. How did your portfolio fare? Some investors felt as if they were hit with a 2-by-4. Some heard (or them-selves screamed) fireŽ in the movie the-ater and ran for the exit. Some rehearsed and rehearsed, I am a long-term inves-tor; I am a long-term investor...Ž But some held truly diversified portfolios (including alternative assets that are uncorrelated to equities) and port-folios consistently managed under strict risk and money management rules. This group of investors might have ended the week unscathed and, maybe, even in the plus column. An analogy comes to mind: The Three Little Pigs who went out into the world to seek their fortunes. One built a house of straw; another with sticks; and anoth-er with bricks. The bricks worked. So, too, investors want a portfolio as solid as a brick house. Now, most investors choose to invest in a portfolio of assetsƒ not just one or a very limited number of assets. (Yes, a limited asset portfolio can be a homer-un; but it can also lead to ruin.) For the investor who is not prescient and/or cant take the heavy bet, risk should be spread, even if it means a lower return. This is called diversification. But here is part of the typical investors problem, he or she thinks that, by hav-ing equity allocations across industries, countries and continents, the portfolio is truly diversified. But along comes the EU crisis, prospects of a second U.S. recession and Chinas economy slowing and Bam!Ž the financial markets plum-met and the seemingly diversified port-folio is going down the drain en masse. In a financial crisis, equity correlations approach 1.0, or a very high degree of positive correlation. Not what you, the investor, wanted or thought you were creating. A portfolio that is buy-and-hold, longonly equities could easily be compared to a house built with straw. Sure, its built with lots of different types of straw and some from all over the world, but still, its just straw. Most portfolios have some allocation to bonds, probably a partial buffer in the recent decline. So you could say that a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds is akin to building a house with sticks. Its better than straw. Sadly, for many investors, the portfolio diversification/allocation process stops there. It shouldnt. What might make the portfolio stronger? The portfolio should: € have other asset classes that are not correlated (neither positively nor nega-tively) to equities, specifically managed futures; and € employ money and risk management techniques. Over the past 30 years, the asset class has had less volatility and greater returns than equities, MSCI index or REITs. You would think that advisers would be jumping up and down and pounding the table to get their clients portfolios partially allocated to an asset class with such historically beneficial characteristicsƒ Not. And why not? Maybe advisors dont understand this alternative asset class or maybe they dont offer it for sale. Though you might not hear about it from your advisor, it doesnt mean that you dont need it. Another reason is that managed futures are sometimes grossly mischar-acterized as isolated investment bets in a specific commodity at a moment in time. Why would I want to risk getting pork bellies delivered to my door?Ž is meaningless cocktail party banter; it is not managed futures, which embrace a diversified portfolio of futures (across commodities and currencies, etc.) and disciplined execution of risk and money management techniques. It is highly managed, professional and regulated. How could inclusion of managed futures have helped a traditional port-folio last week? For example, if the portfolio was: long the Yen and short copper, the Euro and soybeans, it might have done very well. The possible gains from these positions could potentially have buffered equity losses.Secondly, in my opinion, all portfolio managers need to consistently execute risk and money management tech-niques. But before execution, they have to create these rule sets and articulate them to you. Rule sets for entry and exit are extremely common manage-ment techniques in managed futures. These are trying investment times. A multitude of serious, related problems remain unresolved. Trying to funda-mentally sort things out might be an unrealistic expectation. But it is very realistic to further protect a portfo-lio by including uncorrelated assets that have potential to generate positive returns and by having portfolio manag-ers employ risk and money manage-ment techniques. A portfolio of long-only, buy and hold equities might be a ticket for a con-tinued, several-year, nauseating roller coaster ride. Investing doesnt have to be that way.

THE NORTON MUSEUM IS EMBRACING ITS neighborhood. The 70-year-old museum, south of downtown West Palm Beach, has been closed three weeks for construction to reinstall its galleries, reinterpret its collections and redesign the lobby. But what will visitors see, when the museum reopens Oct. 1? Its going to be very different, and that really is about visitor experience. We will be ticketing in a different way and there will be comfortable furniture and the kind of environment that we hope will be con-ducive to welcoming people and bringing them into the museum,Ž said the Nor-tons director and CEO, Hope Alswang, during a recent tour of the museum, much of which was under wraps as painters changed wall colors and work-ers polished concrete floors to a sheen. That lobby still will be home to a Jose Alva-rez installation, but the rest of its space was shedding its purple walls in favor of white. The ticket office, which had been tucked into a corner, will now be part of a centralized information center. No more confusion for visitors, Ms. Alswang said. And that welcoming spirit will extend The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is making its first foray into season with three shows in October. First up, the Glenn Miller Orchestra will perform a show at 8 p.m. Oct. 9 as a benefit for the theaters guild. The orchestra, which now is based out of Lake Mary, near Orlando, was known for such hits as Moonlight Ser-enade,Ž Steppin Out,Ž In the MoodŽ and Penn sylv ania 6-5000.Ž And it was known for producing a genuine hero in its founder, Glenn Mill-er, who died in 1944 while performing for Allied troops in Europe. If the sounds of Glenn Miller are geared to adults of a certain age, then Jigsaw Jones, the Case of the Class ClownŽ is geared toward those adults grandchildren. The show, part of the PNC Kids Korner Series, is scheduled for noon Oct. 22. In it, actors bring the chapter book series by James Preller to life as young detective Theodore JigsawŽ Jones solves a slimy mystery. And at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24, audiences can gain insights into the world of espionage with the lecture Spies: Mov-ies vs. Reality.Ž Author and historian H. Keith Melton journeys into the world of Alfred Hitch-cocks The 39 StepsŽ through an audio-visual presentation and compares its characters spy craft with that used by todays spies. Mr. Melton has assembled a collection of 8,000 spy devices and was a founding member of the Inter-national Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.

CUP OF FRESHL Y BREWED COFFEE WITH ANY PURCHASE!“A Taste of Home in Every Bite!”I once spent a month in a French village perched on the side of a mountain. The houses were built of stone in an era when burning witches was day-to-day fare. In recent years, young French people have begun moving to cities so that the population of remote places is aging and villages are inhabited mostly by the elderly. While I lived there, I greeted my neighbors with a pleasant hello. I walked the narrow streets in the mornings and visited the nearby abbey in the eve-nings. Once a week I bought eggs and tomatoes from Mr. Garcia, who lived down the road. Mr. Garcia was 87 and spry. On the day the bread truck came to town, he dressed in his most dapper sweater and his best-pressed pants. He carried a cane that gave him a distinguished air, and he greeted the women waiting in their housecoats with a charming Bon-jour!Ž For me he saved a special wink. Perhaps youd like to come by for an aperitif?Ž he asked one morning. A little pastis?Ž Im not the type to visit the houses of strange men, advanced in age or otherwise, but Mr. Garcia was a known figure. Also, I have a softness for older people. I came to his house that night wearing bracelets that clinked on my wrists and perfume that smelled like roses. You are magnifique,Ž he said. He opened his front door wide and waved me in. I followed him to the small kitchen table where he offered me a seat. I smiled while he poured two glasses of pastis. I tried not to flinch as he draped an arm over my shoulders. I dont like strange people touching me, but I let Mr. Garcia have his old man hug. He brought out a stack of photos and showed me pictures of his grand-daughter. He leaned his face close to mine as he talked, and the arm around my shoulder slipped lower so that his hand rested on the curve of my waist. There I was doing my good service for the week, and Mr. Garcia was copping a feel. The bell in the church tower struck the half hour, and I stood abruptly. It was time to go. I told my friends the story later, and everyone agreed they had received their share of old man hugs. In fact, its a notori-ous trick. We let certain people get away with bad behavior because we perceive them as harmless. But Mr. Garcia, with his spryness and his charm, knew just what he was doing. And how far he could go. When I told a male friend in the village, he just laughed. I get the same thing,Ž he said. From the women.Ž The grande dames often greet him with a two-cheek kiss placed perilously close to his lips. One woman pulled him close and let her hand travel down his back and over the rise of his rear until she had a handful of his other cheek. She gave it a good squeeze. As it turns out, the liberties of age „ and the privileges „ are equal oppor-tunity. At least we have that to look forward to.

Must pr esent coupon. Expires 10/6/2011. By John Fricke(Running Press, $30)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXSpecial to Florida WeeklySeventy-five years ago this autumn, Pigskin Parade,Ž a film musical that featured a rather tired plot involving a college football game, opened in theaters around the country. The cast included Stu-art Erwin, Betty Grable, comedian Patsy Kelly, singer Tony Martin and the Yacht Club Boys. Judy Garland also appeared in the film and was listed 10th „ or dead last „ on the promotional poster. Although the film was not a major box-office hit, moviegoers did take notice of Ms. Garland and the incredible energy she brought to the screen. During the years that followed, she evolved to become one of the worlds greatest entertainers. In addition to her film work, she was a frequent performer on network radio, a major talent at Decca records and did concert tours that brought her interna-tional fame. John Fricke, winner of two Emmy Awards, has compiled a coffee table book that documents Ms. Garlands film work in unprecedented detail. His text is supplemented with more than 600 images, many published for the first time. This book is divided into four main parts spanning the years from 1936 to 1963. Along with her film work, there is a brief biography and highlights of her radio, television and concert work, contemporary reviews and comments from her co-stars and co-workers. Also included are musical number listings, synop-ses and production his-tories. Most intriguing, however, are the film pro-ductions for which she was supposedly consid-ered but for one reason or another failed to do. For example, one only has to look at the prepro-duction costume stills of Annie Get Your GunŽ to wonder what that movie would have been like if Ms. Garland had starred in it as origi-nally planned instead of Betty Hutton. Judy Garland was a superstar who helped redefine American entertain-ment and left an indelible mark on our popular culture. John Fricke has compiled a fitting tribute that not only showcases Ms. Garlands film roles and achievements, but celebrates one of this countrys brightest talents.

PAGE 32 FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 5, 2011 outside, too. The Norton is working with the University of Miamis School of Architec-ture to restore and find ways to bet-ter use six houses the museum owns along the south side of its property, on Cranes Nest Way. At times, the muse-um has been at odds with residents of the surrounding neighborhoods as it continued to expand, including one noteworthy battle over a 1920s garage the museum wanted to demolish. Preservationists can relax, Ms. Alswang said. What were trying to do is be respectful to the neighborhood,Ž she said. Return that street to the scale that it should have and restore those houses in a way that really brings back their appropriate charm.Ž And what about that garage? Remember how we wanted to tear it down and nobody would let us? Well, were not tearing it down,Ž Ms. Alswang said, laughing. Im all for the path of least resistance on that one. No, its going to really be charming.Ž Its up to the architecture students to find ways in which the museum can use those houses, four of which were built in the 1920s and two of which hail from the 1940s. That news came as the Norton announced record attendance this year of 115,000 visitors, a gain of more than 18 percent over last years 97,000. Those 115,000 people came to see traveling shows, but also came to see the Nortons collection. Ralph Norton founded the museum to house his collection. He would fit the description of these collectors today who get this bug when they go on their business trips to New York or Basel or whatever part of the world they have to look at art or they have to buy art,Ž said Cheryl Brutvan, the museums curator of contemporary art. And Mr. Norton was known for that early on, she said. Ms. Brutvan said she hoped moving the art around and changing the colors of the gallery walls would make audi-ences view the works in a new way. I hope that it does look different because of the different juxtapositions I created,Ž she said. Thats part of emphasizing the Nortons collection. What weve done with this reinstallation is that when you walk in, to the left or the right, will be the Norton collection,Ž said Charlie Stainback, the museums assistant director. It will be the first thing you see, front and center.Ž And to get to the galleries containing special exhibitions, visitors will have to walk through galleries that house the museums collection. What we really wanted to do is foreground the Norton collection,Ž Mr. Stainback said. That in turn will help it complement the special exhibitions, which brings it back to that spirit of working together. Museums are really a cooperative endeavor. Im the director and my job is really to give all of the talent in this building the opportunity to work together and to make the very best pos-sible outcome,Ž Ms. Alswang said, com-paring her job to that of a symphony conductor. It helps her feed the communitys need for art. Were very lucky in this community that much of our audience has an insa-tiable interest in art.Ž Q NORTONFrom page 1 >> Norton Museum of Art — The museum will reopen at 10 a.m. Oct. 1, with special do-it-yourself family art projects and 30-minute curator-led gallery talks in the re-installed gal-leries, as well as the Chinese galleries.The tour schedule is: Noon-12:30 p.m. — “Re-Viewing the Masters,” with Jerry Dobrick, curatorial assistant.1 p.m.-1:30 p.m. — “American Art in the ‘American Century,’” with Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst curator of educa-tion. 2 p.m.-2:30 p.m. — “European Art,” from Monet to Soutine,” with Jerry Dobrick, curatorial assistant.3 p.m.-3:30 p.m. — “Traders and Raiders in Asia,” with Laurie Barnes, Elizabeth B.

PAGE 36 FLORIDA WEEKLYB8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT W EEK OF S E PT E MBER 29O CT OB ER 5, 2011 Antiques sometimes remind us that Grandma’s home remedies are still the best. In 2004 the Food and Drug Admin istration approved the use of leeches by doctors. Beginning in 200 B.C., medical doctors used leeches to cure a fever. They thought the red color of the face and the fever was caused by too much blood. There are several types of leeches found in the wild, but they have fewer and fewer places to breed. Leeches look like large worms — some grow to be 8 inches long. They feed on blood. Many campers have gone swimming and find bloody leeches clinging to their legs when they get out of the water. The leech bite injects an antico agulant so the blood flows more freely. In the 18th and 19th centuries, leeches were kept at the apothecary shop in attractive pottery urns with lids. The use of leeches was very popular in the 1860s, then lost favor. But now the animals are used to help heal skin grafts, to treat blocked veins and to aid in surgeries that require the removal of pooled blood under the skin. Today you can buy medical leeches for about $8 each, but they cannot be returned. Antique leech jars cost much more. Q: I have a metal box with “HRH Prin cess Elizabeth, Colonel of the Grenadier Guards” sitting on her horse. The words “Huntley & Palmers Biscuits, Reading & London, England” are stamped on it. Can you tell me what year this was made? A: Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Eliz abeth) became Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards in 1942. She reviewed the troops at the changing of the guard for the first time in 1947. This was also the first time the ceremony was held after the end of World War II. Your tin commemorates this event. Huntley & Palmers was founded by Joseph Huntley, a baker, and George Palmer, a tinsmith, in 1822. They packed their “biscuits” (cookies) in tins to keep them from crumbling when they were delivered by stagecoach. Their first bakery was located on London Street in Reading, England. The com pany was the world’s largest maker of biscuits by 1900. It was in business until the 1990s, and after an absence of several years, the company began making bis cuits again in Sudbury, England, in 2006. Huntley & Palmers is still in business. Q: I inherited my grandmother’s Victorian upright piano. She was born in 1902. I remem ber her telling me that her father brought the piano up the driveway on his horse-drawn wagon when she was 13 or 14 years old. Inside the piano it says “A.M. McPhail Piano Co.” and it’s stamped with the number 21072. Can give me any information? A: The A.M. McPhail Piano Co. was founded in Boston by Andrew M. McPhail in 1837. The serial number inside your piano indicates that it was made in 1897. The trade name was bought by Kohler & Campbell in about 1891 and pianos with the McPhail name were made until the late 1950s. People who want to buy a piano look for an instrument in good, playable condition. The age of the piano may be a draw back, but some people want an upright because it takes up less space or because they want to decorate their home with Victorian furniture. Q: I have a dog’s head made from “macerated money.” There is a partial label on the bottom that says it was made by the U.S. Mint from an estimated $100,000 worth of greenbacks that were redeemed and macerated. It was purchased at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1901 and given to me many years ago. Can you give me any information about it? A: Souvenir items made from macerated money were popular at the turn of the 20th cen tury. Paper money was first issued by the federal government in 1861. In the early years, old paper money was destroyed by punching holes in it and burning it, but it was found that some unscrupulous fed eral employees were patching the holes and making off with the money. Between 1874 and 1942, a system of macerating the money into a pulp was used to destroy it. The money was soaked in a vat of soda ash and lime water and the pulp was then rolled into sheets and sold as bookbinder’s board. Figures were made from macerated money as early as 1879. In about 1881, Henry Mar tin, a U.S. Treasury employee and a one-legged Civil War veteran, began molding the pulp into souvenir items and selling them in Washington, D.C. By the turn of the century, many others were also mak ing these souvenirs. The estimated value of an item molded in greenbacks depends on the denomination of the bills included. We’ve seen the dog’s head made from an estimated $100,000 worth of greenbacks. It sold at auction last year for $170. Tip: Try this to remove stains from inside a glass decanter. Put warm water, 1/2 teaspoon of liquid detergent and some uncooked rice grains into the decanter. Shake well, then rinse. Q — Terry Kovel answers as many ques tions as possible through the column.

FLORIDA WEEKLY W EEK OF S E PT EM BER 29O CTOBER 5, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B9 ++++ Is it worth $10? YesBaseball, it can be said, is no longer a sport for the masses. The games take forever, there’s often not much action, and the prevailing notion that it’s the “American pastime” is more a vestige of our father and grandfather’s gen erations, not our own. So to hear that “Moneyball” is not just about baseball, but also the business and (yes) scien-tific/mathematic elements of the grand old game, it’s understandable for you to let out a big, haven’t-slept-in-three-days yawn and dismissively pass. But boy, would you be missing something. “Moneyball” grabs you with the sports motif of the underdogs battling to compete with the Goliaths, and by letting you in behind the closed doors of baseball business, it keeps you intrigued — if not fully captivated — through-out. Based on the story of the Oak-land A’s 2002 season, the story follows Billy Beane, the team’s general manager (played by Brad Pitt), as he assembles a team of no-names that winds up com-peting for the championship. How does he do it? That’s the fascinating part. It’s called “sabremetrics” in some circles, but what it boils down to is this: It’s the analysis of baseball through statistics and empirical data rather than long-standing fundamental traditions of the game. For example, baseball wisdom says that when the leadoff batter gets on, the next batter should sacrifice an out by bunting in order to get the leadoff man to second base. But in sabremetrics the theory is renounced, because giving up an out when you only have three per inning doesn’t make statistical sense. Accordingly, Beane and his Yaleeducated-economist assistant, Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), devise a scheme to replace the statistical numbers they lost from the 2001 team with a heavy dose of undervalued players who still have something left. They include: Scott Hat-teberg (Chris Pratt), David Justice (Ste-phen Bishop) and Jeremy Giambi (Nick Porrazzo), among others. Unfortunately, manager Art Howe (Philip Seymour Hoffman) doesn’t buy into the sabre-metric system, and how Beane slyly handles this is a real treat.If there’s a flaw in director Bennett Miller’s (“Capote”) story, it’s that there’s a bit too much emphasis on Beane’s person al life, including his own failed career as a player and his failed marriage to Sharon (Robin Wright Penn). The scenes with Beane’s daughter Casey (Kerris Dorsey), though at first tedious, do have an emo tional payoff by the end, however. A strong script by Aaron Sorkin (“The Social Network”) and Steven Zaillian (“Schindler’s List”), working from the book by “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” by Michael Lewis, cer tainly helps the dramatic scenes resonate.Credit also goes to Mr. Pitt, an actor with underappreciated range who nicely gets us to like Beane while understand-ing his harsh business moves. It might be asking too much for an Oscar nomi-nation for such a straightforward role, but Mr. Pitt’s screen presence is the glue that holds all the pieces together. “Moneyball” does what many likely thought impossible: It makes a story about baseball science profoundly mov-ing and interesting. Remember: You don’t have to like baseball in order to enjoy a great, extremely well told story that happens to be about baseball. Q REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.comDrive ++++ (Ryan Gosling, Bryan Cranston, Carey Mulligan) A heist-getaway driver (Mr. Gosling) helps the deadbeat husband (Oscar Isaac) of his lovely neighbor (Ms. Mulligan). It’s quietly subversive and understated, and always very well done. It’s also yet another fine perfor-mance from Mr. Gosling. Rated R. Warrior ++++ (Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, Nick Nolte) Estranged brothers Tommy (Mr. Hardy) and Brendan (Mr. Edgerton) are on a collision course to meet in a lucrative Mixed Martial Arts tourna-ment in this drama from director Gavin O’Connor (“Miracle”). The performanc-es are exceptional, the story is devas-tating, and the action is tense without going over the top. This is one of the best films of the year. Rated PG-13.
