Chamber cultivates Art in the GardensWhen youre alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go downtown „ at least for the arts. Make that Downtown „ as in Downtown at the Gardens. The weekend of Oct. 15-16, the shopping complex will be home to the sixth annual Art in the Gardens. Its just a good, family friendly community art show,Ž said Ed Chase, president of the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the event. We should have about 85 artists.Ž Nine of those 85 artists have studios in Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter or Juno Beach, said chamber spokeswoman Tess Lozano. In years past, the show was held at Midtown. Mr. Chase said organizers are counting on 5,000 to 10,000 people to attend. Having a new venue gives people a lot more chance to wander around. Well have a lot more artists than we had last year,Ž he said. The chamber also sponsors ArtiGras, a huge fine arts festival held each Presidents Day weekend. Art in the Gardens is more intimate. It came about a number of years ago. We do ArtiGras and its big. We bring in artisans and fine arts and crafts from all over the country,Ž Mr. Chase said. We just felt like there needed to be a more community fla-vor. We needed more artists and crafts.Ž Q BILL CORNWELL A2 DINING A35PETS A6HEALTHY LIVING A12 BUSINESS A11REAL ESTATE A21ARTS A23EVENTS A25 ANTIQUES A20NETWORKING A18-19PUZZLES A32SOCIETY A22, A33 PRSRT STD U.S. POSTAGE PAID FORT MYERS, FL PERMIT NO. 715 Hippest festivalRingling festival brings rare performances to Florida.

They arrive in wheelchairs or pushing walkers or assisted by uniformed aides. Then, from their semi-circle of seating, they stare straight ahead, as if absorbed in deep thought, or afloat in the lack of it. It is 3 p.m. on a Friday, and time for harp therapy. Laura Cole moves slowly, too. She slides her Westover folk harp from its black canvas cover and sets it on a small, ivorycolored pillow atop a footrest. She rubs Avalon Organics lotion onto her hands from the small sample bottle in her purse, because lotion, she says, makes the strings sound sweeter.Ž She pours bottled water into a paper cup and sets it on the round wooden table beside her. She hopes, in the next hour, to perform a kind of magic. This sort of audience is rarely static, its response not always pre-dictable.

Experience is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done.The way we do it. FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 bill CORNWELL O We are nearing the time to elect a president, so that means Floridas Republican party is bound to do something stupid. We all remember the debacle of 2000, when the Sunshine State looked more like a banana republic than a prized tourist destination. Twelve years later, the states Republicans are mucking things up again. The party has decided to move its presidential primary election from March to Jan. 31. Theoretically, this change is meant to give Florida Republicans more sway in the nominating process. In reality, however, all it has accomplished is anger Republicans in other states and dilute Floridas influence at the national convention „ which, ironically, will be held in Tampa. The Republican National Committee intends to punish Florida by reducing its delegate count at the convention from 99 to 48. Im having a hard time understanding how you gain influence by losing delegates, but Im sure it makes sense to someone. The way things stand now, the Republican presidential field may not even be complete by the end of January. The process is cur-rently so muddled and uncertain that no one really knows who is running and who is not. What is it with these Republicans? It is as if this presidential election has taken them by surprise. Mitt Romney is in, and he stays a steady „ if dull „ course. Rick Perry blazed upon the scene like a meteor, but his poll numbers began to evaporate once circumstances dic-tated that he open his mouth and actually say something. The only thing to catch fire in Newt Gingrichs campaign is his hair. The agreement is that Mr. Gingrich is very smart, which makes some of the incredibly dumb things he says rather mystifying. The new darling of the campaign is Herman Cain, the pizza magnate from Georgia. Mr. Cain won the Florida straw vote, and his poll numbers rocketed as a result. He seems genial and well meaning, but he, too, is prone to odd exclamations. The most recent verbal stumble came when he said African Ameri-can voters had been brainwashedŽ into sup-porting Democratic candidates. Mr. Cain should have consulted Mr. Romney before he let fly with that little nugget. In 1967, Mr. Romneys father, Michigan Gov. George Romney, was a strong contender for the GOP presidential nomination. George Romneys campaign imploded when he said he had been brainwashedŽ into supporting the Vietnam War. Mr. Cain should have known that voters tend to take offense at the suggestion they are so intellectually limited that they can be subjected to brainwashing. Despite his sudden surge, Mr. Cain is a long shot at best. The inimitable Sarah Palin dismissed him as the flavor of the week.Ž Of course in doing so, the former half-term Alaska governor screwed up his name, call-ing him Herb CainŽ rather than Herman Cain. Ms. Palin keeps dropping hints that she may enter the race. Like Hansel and Gretel, she leaves a trail of crumbs that tantalizes her followers „ the number of which is declining almost daily. Ms. Palin now finds herself on an island of weirdness. She is thin-skinned in the extreme, and she no longer restricts her paranoid ranting to the main-stream media. She recently charged that Fox News (which employs her) has been deliber-ately spreading false information about her. And finally, theres Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor, who said repeatedly that he was not a candidate for the nomina-tion and had explained further that he didnt really want to be president and that he was not prepared or qualified to sit in the Oval Office. Even with all that on the record, old guard Republicans still salivated at the prospect of Gov. Christies candidacy. Mr. Romney fails to inspire them and Mr. Perry scares the hell of them. Thus, Gov. Christie, ready or not, was seen as the savior. Gov. Christie, however, proved true to his word and announced this week he would not enter the race. One compelling and quirky argument in favor of Gov. Christie getting into the race was that he probably will have a tough time winning re-election as governor. If he was going to seek the White House, most analysts thought this was the time to do it. Even Gov. Christies most ardent supporters concede that he is arrogant, obnoxious, quick-tempered and contemptuous of crit-ics. At a time when the country is divided and the level of political discourse shrill, personal and nasty, its difficult to imagine that a President Christie would have ush-ered in a new tone of civility and bipartisan support. Gov. Christie is a moderate on things like gun control and climate change, and that would not have rested well with Tea Partiers who love the fact that Gov. Perry packs heat on his daily jogs. Gov. Christie might have been a strong general election candidate, but he would have walked a minefield during the Republican primaries. With Gov. Christie now officially out of the picture, the GOP is left with the same old same old. While the Republicans stumble and fumble, the Democrats look on with amuse-ment. But that amusement is tempered by the realization that they are saddled with a candidate „ President Obama „ who is losing ground at an astonishing rate. Most troubling for the president is the erosion of support among independents. He cannot win without them. The smug jokes and asides that Democrats make about the 2012 Republican field have an odd echo. In 1980, they derisively referred to Ronald Reagan as an amiable dunce.Ž Well, as Democrats painfully learned over the next eight years, even a dunce can have his day.

PAGE 4 FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 Rick Perry stumbled through much of the last Republican debate, but not when speaking about immigration. He issued a clarion condemnation of crit-ics of his states policy of giving the children of illegal immigrants in-state tuition to college. Such naysayers, Perry declared, lack a heart.Ž The Texas governor prides himself on his distinctness from George W. Bush, yet on this issue he sounds just like him: scolding his party for its lack of com-passion for immigrants coming here to make a go of it. If Perry had wanted to avoid raising the hackles of Republicans with the imputation of heartlessness, he could have borrowed the staple Bush line: Family values dont stop at the Rio Grande.Ž Neither, more relevantly, does the desire to find a job. What Perry portrays as the great American job machine in his state has mostly benefited people who arent Americans, according to a new study by the Center for Immigra-tion Studies. This significant caveat to the Texas Miracle raises the larger ques-tion of why the country has continued to welcome millions of new immigrants during the past few years while shed-ding millions of jobs.In Texas, the study finds, 81 percent of the jobs created since 2007 have gone to immigrants who arrived in the United States since 2007. Ninety-three percent of these immigrants arent citizens. An esti-mated 50 percent are illegal immigrants.If providing ready employment opportunities for non-Americans seems awfully cosmopolitan for the man who is supposed to be a famous rube from Paint Creek, its the Texas way. In wel-coming all comers, Perry can do the bidding of a business community that wants the immigrant labor and simul-taneously appeal to the Hispanic vote. If anyone should think to complain that hes soft on illegal immigration, well, now, thats why God created the point-less gesture, isnt it? Perry can ostentatiously send Texas Rangers to the border and lambaste the federal governments failures, but none of it matters if its relatively easy for illegals to find a job. Another border state, Arizona, implemented an e-verify system requiring employers to check the immigration status of prospective employees. It led to a dramatic reduc-tion in the population of illegals, many of whom have, no doubt, decamped to Texas. So long as he doesnt imple-ment e-verify, Perry is shooting holes in the bottom of U.S.S. Enforcement and demanding that the feds bail faster. It would be much too simplistic to say that every new immigrant employed in Texas took his job from a native. On the other hand, it would be much too Polly-annish to deny that there must be crowd-ing out, especially of natives who dont have a college degree. At least Texas has been creating jobs. The country has lost about 7 million jobs since the onset of the recession in 2007 and continued to import another 1 million new immigrant workers a year, and 200,000-300,000 illegal immigrants on top of them. In August, monthly job growth ground to halt, yet were welcoming some 100,000 new immigrants a month. Is it heartless to wonder why this makes any sense? Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.On Sept. 21 at 7 p.m., Troy Anthony Davis was scheduled to die. I was report-ing live from outside Georgias death row in Jackson, awaiting news about whether the Supreme Court would spare his life. Davis was sentenced to death for the murder of off-duty Savannah police offi-cer Mark MacPhail in 1989. Seven of the nine non-police witnesses later recant-ed or changed their testimony, some alleging police intimidation for their original false statements. One who did not recant was the man who many have named as the actual killer. No physical evidence linked Davis to the shooting. Davis, one of more than 3,200 prisoners on death row in the U.S., had faced three prior execution dates. With each one, global awareness grew. Amnesty International took up his case, as did the National Association for the Advance-ment of Colored People. Calls for clem-ency came from Pope Benedict XVI, former FBI Director William Sessions and former Republican Georgia Con-gressman Bob Barr. The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles, in grant-ing a stay of execution in 2007, wrote that it will not allow an execution to proceed in this state unless ... there is no doubt as to the guilt of the accused.Ž But it is just that doubt that has galvanized so much global outrage over this case. As we waited, the crowd swelled around the prison, with signs saying Too Much DoubtŽ and I Am Troy Davis.Ž Vigils were being held around the world, in places like Iceland, Eng-land, France and Germany. Earlier in the day, prison authorities handed us a thin press kit. At 3 p.m., it said, Davis would be given a routine physical.Ž Routine? Physical? At a local church down the road, Edward DuBose, the president of Georgias NAACP chapter, spoke, along with human-rights lead-ers, clergy and family members who had just left Davis. DuBose questioned the physical, so that they could make sure hes physically fit, so that they can strap him down, so that they could put the murder juice in his arm? Make no mistake: They call it an execution. We call it murder.Ž Davis had turned down a special meal. The press kit described the standard fare Davis would be offered: grilled cheese-burgers, oven-browned potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw, cookies and grape bev-erage.Ž It also listed the lethal cocktail that would follow: Pentobarbital. Pan-curonium bromide. Potassium chloride. Ativan (sedative).Ž The pentobarbital anesthetizes, the pancuronium bromide paralyzes, and the potassium chloride stops the heart. Davis refused the seda-tive, and the last supper. By 7 p.m., the U.S. Supreme Court was reportedly reviewing Davis plea for a stay. The case was referred to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who hails from Pin Point, Ga., a commu-nity founded by freed slaves that is near Savannah, where Davis had lived. The chorus for clemency grew louder. Allen Ault, a former warden of Geor-gias death-row prison who oversaw five executions there, sent a letter to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, co-signed by five other retired wardens or directors of state prisons. They wrote: While most of the prisoners whose executions we participated in accepted responsibil-ity for the crimes for which they were punished, some of us have also executed prisoners who maintained their inno-cence until the end. It is those cases that are most haunting to an executioner.Ž The Supreme Court denied the plea. Davis execution began at 10:53 p.m. A prison spokesperson delivered the news to the reporters outside: time of death, 11:08 p.m.The eyewitnesses to the execution stepped out. According to an Associated Press reporter who was there, these were Troy Davis final words: Id like to address the MacPhail family. Let you know, despite the situation you are in, Im not the one who personally killed your son, your father, your brother. I am innocent. The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun. All I can ask ... is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth. I ask my fam-ily and friends to continue to fight this fight. For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls.Ž“…I am innocent. The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun… For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls.” – Last words of Troy DavisThe state of Georgia took Davis body to Atlanta for an autopsy, charging his family for the transportation. On Troy Davis death certificate, the cause of death is listed simply as homicide.Ž As I stood on the grounds of the prison, just after Troy Davis was executed, the Department of Corrections threat-ened to pull the plug on our broadcast. The show was over. I was reminded what Gandhi reportedly answered when asked what he thought of Western civilization: I think it would be a good idea.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 900 stations in North America.

Sat. 10 am 5 pm All NEW Skele-Toes 2.0 Styles In Stock PET TALES Clean and healthyWeekly bathing gets the thumbs-up from veterinary research BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickDogs are content to live in dog-smell heaven, a place where water is only for drinking or swimming and never has soap added. Sadly, from a canine point of view, we make the rules that dictate how often dogs must be bathed. But how often is that? Forget that old saw about every six monthsŽ or even every year.Ž Who wants to live with a stinky dog? New veterinary research shows that weekly bathing with an appropriate shampoo „ ask your vet-erinarian for a recommendation „ will not only keep your dog pleasant to be around, but will also minimize or even eliminate skin problems. So get ready: Were going to wash the dog! Before you start, brush your dog well. Mats and tangles, once wet, just get worse and will likely have to be cut out. So get them out of the way first. Let your brushed dog relax while you set up the proper equipment and fill the tub. A bath mat in the tub or sink will make your dog feel more comfort-able by giving him something secure to stand on. Youll also need a spray nozzle. Some people rinse their dogs by pouring dirty bathwater back over them, but that defeats the purpose of bathing a dog (to get him clean), so use a nozzle. Set out your towels and some dog-friendly shampoo and conditioner where you can reach them. Right before the big plunge, put a pinch of cotton just inside your dogs ears to help keep the soap out (dont forget to remove the cotton afterward). Dont spare the words of love and encouragement. In working with dogs, a good attitude can go a long way, but a bad one can go even further. If your dog knows how much you hate bath time, how can he get a positive, or at least toler-able, opinion of the process? Keep your attitude high and dont let up on the praise. Lather up, rinse and repeat (the biggest mistake most people make is not rinsing well enough „ it makes the coat dull and flaky). Fol-low up with a conditioner or detangler if your pets coat needs either. Rinse throughly a final time. Hold a towel over your dog loosely while he shakes. Your dog can get more water off by shaking than you can by toweling. So let him have at it, and then finish the job by rubbing him dry when hes done. (Forced-air dog dryers start at less than $100 and can be a wonderful investment for a dog owner, especially those with long-haired pets.) Dont let your dog outside until hes dry, so he wont roll in something yucky and undo the work youve done. And what about felines? While cats „ especially shorthaired ones „ generally do a pretty good job of keeping them-selves well-groomed, if you have an allergy sufferer in the house, a weekly bath (or just a rinse with clean water) will help to keep the allergen levels to more manageable levels. My cat gets a weekly bath because of my allergies. He doesnt like being bathed, but since I started him as a kit-ten he will tolerate it, more or less. Q The idea that a dog should go months between baths is as outdated as doing laundry in a washtub. Pets of the Week >> Lucy is a 2-year-old spayed Labrador Retriever mix.

Mr. Urbo-nas model of gravitational aestheticsŽ would be a third-mile-long, 1,600-foot-high thrill ride engineered to supply 10 Gs of centrifugal force (a spin at about 220 mph) to induce cerebral hypoxia, forcing blood away from the head and denying oxygen to the brain. Euphoria (and disorientation and anxiety, but not pain) are likely states to precede the brains shutdown. Mr. Urbonas insisted that users would have the option through the first two minutes of the three-minute ride to rethink their decision and bail out (or else to push the f inal FALLŽ button). (Suicide is legal in four European coun-tries and Oregon and Washington.) Q The convenience store clerk, Ms. Falg uni P atel, was giving testimony in the September trial of Morgan Armstrong (charged with robbing her in Hudson, Fla., in 2009) when she began shaking and then passed out while seated in the witness box. A relative of Ms. Patels approached, removed her sneaker and held it to Ms. Patels face, without suc-cess. The relative explained that Ms. Patel was subject to such blackouts and that sniffing the sneaker often revives her. (After paramedics attended to her, Ms. Patel took the rest of the day off and went back to court the next morn-ing.) Q Q An openg overnment advocacy groups survey of federal agencies, released in July, revealed that eight of them have unresolved Freedom of Infor-mation Act requests that are more than a decade old, including one pending for more than 20 years. (The 1976 FOIA law requires resolution within 20 business days, with a 10-day extension under unusual circumstances.Ž) (Also, regard-ing the FOIA, a June 2011 request by the city of Sioux City, Iowa, for background documents regarding the recent Post-al Service decision to move jobs from Sioux City to Sioux Falls, S.D., was met promptly „ by the Postal Services fore-cast that the likely fee for the documents would be $831,000, even though under the law the first two search hours and the first 100 documents are free.) Q In August, the Securities and Exchange Commissions inspector gen-eral revealed that a $1,200 cash award was paid by the agency in 2010 to one of the very employees who had been specifically singled out for allowing Ber-nard Madoff to talk his way out of SEC inquiries in 2005 and 2006, before his epic Ponzi scheme was exposed in 2008. (The IG helpfully recommended that, in the future, awards not be given to employees who have recently been fac-ing potential disciplinary action for poor performance.) Q Among the aftershocks of the 9-11 attacks on America was the colossal bud-get-busting on homeland securityŽ „ a spending binge that, additionally, was thought to require something approach-ing uniform disbursement of funds throughout the 50 states. (Endless what ifŽ possibilities left no legislator willing to forsake maximum security.) Among the questionable projects described in a Los Angeles Times August review were the purchase of an inflatable Zodiac boat with wide-scan sonar „ in case terrorists were eyeing Lake McConaughy in Keith County, Neb.; cattle nose leads, halters and electric prods (to protect against biological attacks on cows, awarded to Cherry County, Neb.); a terrorist-proof iron fence around a Veterans Affairs hos-pital near Asheville, N.C.; and $557,400 in communications and rescue gear in case North Pole, Alaska, got hit.Q The Office of Personnel Managements inspector general denounced the agency in September for promiscuously continuing to pay pension benefits to deceased federal retirees „ citing a 70 percent rise in bogus payments over the last five years. However, another federal inspector general (the Social Security Administrations) chastised its agency for the opposite reason: About 14,000 people each year are cut off from benefits after erroneously being declared dead. Q


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

Ms. Jacobs now is corporate director of marketing and operations for The Forbes Company, owner of The Gar-dens Mall. Its not her first stint at The Gardens. I did an internship here when I was in college, before the mall opened, and when I graduated college my first job was here at Macys, the year after the mall opened,Ž she says. In fact, Ms. Jacobs started as a department manager at the store as part of the companys executive training program.Ž Before joining Forbes in 2007, she was vice president/general manager at Saks Fifth Avenue. Prior to that, she was general manager of Bloomingdales at The Gardens Mall. You could say retail is in her blood, and not be too far off. Every day is different in retail. Probably the most exciting thing is to talk to customers or observe customers at the shopping center enjoying our archi-tecture and the stress-less environment we provide,Ž she says. Plus, there is the day-to-day evolution of retail. Fashions always changing. I think whats very exciting in our industry is we have the ability and the opportunity to watch the different fashion trends and, particularly at The Gardens Mall, we have been able to bring luxury retailing to northern Palm Beach Coun-ty, and we have a world-class lineup of retail stores,Ž she says. Whats been most exciting is to have been a part of some of the new stores that have come to our shopping center and to our mar-ket and now they are here. We have Chanel, we have a Gucci.Ž The mall was a little more standard issue when it opened 23 years ago. We opened the shopping center in 1988 and it opened with a Burdines, a Macys and a Sears, then Bloomingdales and Saks,Ž she says. Nord-strom opened a few years ago. The area has come a long way from the world in which Ms. Jacobs grew up back in the 1970s. She is responsible for Forbes two other properties in Florida, in Naples and Orlando, but still finds time to serve on the board of directors for Easter Seals of Palm Beach County and shes on the board of the Honda Classic, plus she works with the soup kitchen at her temple. Thats how she likes to give back to her community. It was amazing growing up here. You know, I didnt realize how lucky and good,Ž she says. You dont know how good you have it until you come back, and to live somewhere were its so beautiful „ the beaches are so beautiful „ the weather, the climate is amazing. The people are so nice „ and then to watch it evolve over the last 30 years has really been very special.Ž Really? Im not leaving northern Palm Beach County again,Ž says Ms. Jacobs. This is my home. I so appreciate everything we have in our lifestyle now between beaches and shopping and golf and our community. Were very lucky to live here.Ž Q First job: My first job was when I was, like 15, scooping ice cream at Bresslers on U.S. 1. Q What Im reading: Im reading Dreams of Joy,Ž by Lisa See. She wrote Shanghai Girls.Ž Q My personal philosophy: I live my life just realizing that its not so much what happens to you but how you handle it. And I believe in trying to give back, so I do a lot of volunteer work. Somehow I feel like it makes a difference. Q About The Forbes Company: Were lucky. The Forbes Company is a family-owned business, and our owners, the founding partner, Sid-ney Forbes, and his two sons, Nathan and David, they have such a pulse on retail and on real estate. And no mat-ter whats happening in the economy or whats happening in the world, they never lose sight of the bigger picture and their long-term goals, and to me, I think thats amazing, because instead of making knee-jerk, short-term decisions because theyre feeling like the market maybe has been tough, they look at the bigger picture and stay the course. And they have a true vision of where theyd like to see their shopping centers go. And I think thats very inspiring. They would rather wait and do the right thing then just try to do something to put a Band-aid on it. They really try to solve whatever opportunity or issue there is, so thats why the shopping center is close to 100 percent leased, because theyre really stayed the course and stayed true to who they areƒ. Ive really learned a lot from them. Q What do you love about Florida? The lifestyle that you live here, especially since were going into these beautiful months now. Were so lucky in November through May, where we have spectacular weather. I love to be outside. I love to sit at the beach. I love to walk. I love to run. You know, the heat doesnt bother me, but again I grew up here. And Id much prefer to be hot than cold. And its just beautiful here, if you think about where we live. Q Best thing about my work: I get to work with a lot of different people, very interesting people, in a beautiful environment, and no day is the same, and I love that. Q My personal mission for the company: I just want to do the best job I can do every day and I just want to learn. Wherever my career takes me, Ive been incredibly fortunate to work at amazing placesƒ. I just want to continue to work hard and do the best I can. Q Whats on the horizon: At The Gardens Mall, we feel like we have a responsibility to our guests and to our community, so we are constantly look-ing for ways to deliver the promise to our customer of bring the best and brightest of new retailers to this market and inspiring the retailers that we do have to put the best merchandise in their stores. So thats always at the top of our list, and we also want to keep a laser focus on whats important to the community so we can be good com-munity partners and whats important to the shopper so we are always provid-ing what they want and exceeding their expectations. Q My top tech tool: I guess it would be my iPhone/iPad. Im equipment challenged. My assistant would agree. Q I love: I love my family. To bake „ thats my secret dream job „ to be a baker. I love to read and I love to spend time with my friends. I love to shop, actually. Im here on the weekends shopping, which is, like, a little crazy. Q I hate: I dont think theres anything I hate. Listen, no job is perfect, but I think Im pretty lucky. I get to do so many other things I love to do every day. Q Finally: I do a little bit of everything at the mall, which I like.

PAGE 12 FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 HEALTHY LIVINGPassionate about politics? Don’t ruin your relationships over it linda LIPSHUTZ O GIVINGWhen a house is not a home leslie LILLY President and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties O Recently, I headed to Orlando for the 24th Annual Conference of the Florida Housing Coalition. The theme of the event this year was Housing = Jobs. Advocates working in the housing arena are highly mindful of the economic impact housing represents to our state. In Florida, with job loss weighing heavily on the states economy, a com-pelling argument for more public, pri-vate and philanthropic investment in favor of affordable housing projects is that affordable housing projects can ignite job creation and restore lost jobs. We already know the inverse of what happens when the housing market blows up: There are multiple whammiesŽ to communities that, in this recession, include job loss, thousands of foreclo-sures, the devastation of neighborhoods and families, and a rising tide of home-lessness. The much-diminished safety net offers little protection from the downward spiral all these things in com-bination represent to our local people and places. This story is still unfolding. Earlier this year, the St. Petersburg Times noted Florida had more vacant homes than the state of California, despite the fact our population is about half of that states. The prize we win in this unfortunate contest is first place for having the larg-est number of vacant homes of any state in the country. Florida did not arrive at this destination through a singular cause. Had it been just bad luck and a down market, perhaps the consequences would have been far less damaging. The U.S. Census Bureaus 2010 survey con-firmed that the causes of high vacancy rates are multiple. The multiplier effect comes from the convergence of too many things gone wrong all at once: a grossly overbuilt housing supply; the subprime market debacle; the massive, subsequent num-ber of home foreclosures; the evapora-tion of credit for even the credit worthy; the explosion of job loss and underem-ployment; the advance of expediency over the rigor of due diligence; and the era of bad faith permeating the social and business contracts upon which responsi-bility and accountability depend. Theres more: The tide is also now rising of those who walking away from their houses because they owe more than their home is worth. Strategic defaultsŽ are just more evidence that our battered craft is still chugging toward the cata-strophic consequences of an economic Perfect Storm.Ž In the film of that name, the anti-hero, played by George Clooney, sailed into the abyss of a dark destiny wrought from bad judgment, big greed, willful wrong-doing, ambition on steroids and unexpected fates that turn a hunter into the hunted. And we all know what happened to George. With population growth slowing, the emptiness of all these vacant houses remains. The Palm Beach Post reported that more than half the home purchas-es made in the last few months were paid for by cash and that the buyers are primarily international. The sober-ing aspect of this trend is that a very small percentage of these purchases are destined to become, in the short term, owner occupied. According to the article, the occupancy rate is 14 percent for the condo units that proliferated like in-season parties on Palm Beach dur-ing the housing boom. We have plenty of people who need to rent but dont have jobs or sufficient income to be able to pay the freight for occupying accommodations built for people with disposable income well in excess of minimum wage. So what will it mean that investors and second-home buyers are dominating the market? We adore our snowbirds, but include all those empty places in the count of thousands of vacant, foreclosed properties, and you get increasingly ghost-like neigh-borhoods and communities. At the affordable housing conference, the reality of this new day hung heavily in the air. The opportunities have nar-rowed substantially to directly address the growing housing crisis faced by poor and middle-income families. State funding has disappeared that was once used to subsidize preservation of affordable housing units statewide. For nonprofits, funders and private developers commit-ted to addressing the need for affordable housing, the conversation is all about how to turn a bumper crop of lemons into lemonade. The focus is on new strategies to reclaim and rehab fore-closed properties, and assist families in desperate need of a place to live to find a home they can actually afford, given the prevalence of thousands of families living at or below poverty wages. This Perfect StormŽ is what you get when a house is not a home.The views expressed in this article are the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Community Foundation. As one of Floridas largest community foundations, the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties advances quality of life, citizen engagement and regional vitality through its promotion of philanthropy. We have been in existence for almost 40 years, with total assets of more than 130 million. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $5.3 million in grants and led initiatives to address critical issues of common concern among our regions communities, including hunger, homelessness, affordable housing, and the conservation and protection of water resources. For more information, see Q Marilyn groaned when she saw Al Spring er (names ha ve been changed) elbowing his way towards her husband John at the Back To SchoolŽ fundraiser. The two men have diametrically opposing political views and have had heated arguments in the past. Al loves to goad John and provoke a confrontation. Marilyn had warned John to keep his distance should Al come up to him. Als wife had recently been elected president of the PTA, and Marilyn cringed at the thought of any scenes. Sure enough, Al poked John in the arm and made a cutting remark that would be sure to get Johns blood boiling. And, despite Johns promises to the contrary, he took the bait and hotly contested Als position.Lately, it seems that wherever we go people are talking politics. And, no, its not just humdrum discourse. People have become very emotional, with a lot to say about whats happening around them „ whether its the economy, health care reform, domestic politics, or the state of the world at large. And, very often, theyre not in agreement. Unfortunately, there have been many instances where seemingly friendly debates have escalated into ugly scream-ing matches and personal attacks „ with the incensed parties swearing they will never speak to each other again. Election day is not around the corner so wed better come up with some survival strategies if were to get through the next year! Lets assume that most of us are wellintended folks who are passionately committed to our causes. We may deep-ly fear that implementing the policies of the other side would be the demise of our country. However, even if we believe in our hearts that our way is the best (or only) direction for our country, we are not entitled to shove our posi-tions down everyones throat. There are times we may get so fired up about issues we lose the perspective that we are talking to friends. Decid-ing ahead of time whether to engage in political sparring (and how involved we will ultimately become) can head off vicious confrontations. If someone decides to egg us on, we are not com-mitted to entering the fray. We have every right to say: Im off duty tonightŽ or Lets table this.Ž If we do decide to take this on, some basic etiquette would be appreciated. We cant force others to behave appropri-ately, but we can set up guidelines that might maintain a modicum of decorum. First off, we must size up the audience. People have become so consumed by politics they seem to forget that there is a whole world out there. Its refresh-ing to have other interests. Be aware that the other people might be turned off, bored or feel totally ignored. Also, one never knows who might be in the room and how things will be perceived. It might be okay to rib Uncle Henry, who has enjoyed the political wrangling without causing family upsets. However, its wise to err on the side of caution with our boss or biggest client. Its always important to clarify what we are trying to gain from the con-versation. If were with people who enjoy a spirited discussion of differing viewpoints, with an openness to learn more about issues, its one thing. If were looking for a soapbox to show off our superior grasp of the issues, dominating conversations by preaching and lecturing, we could become quickly unpopular! I may be stating the obvious, but, of course, we have to be tactful and dignified!! Even if we KNOW we are right, (and the other person is a misin-formed *@##&&**), better to keep these thoughts quiet. There is nothing served by telling a friend hes out of his mind. Its arrogant and rude to smirk know-ingly with disdain while hes speaking. We can learn a lot by watching the talking heads on news channels. The pundits are often so busy trying to prove what they know they lose all credibility by not allowing anyone else to speak. There are very bright people on both sides of the political aisle. Implying our adversaries have no brains is not only offensive, but also unfair. Its only right to let the other person speak up, even if it means biting our fingers to the quick while we listen. If were going to open our mouths in an authoritative way, wed better make sure we have the facts straight. Theres nothing worse than a know-it-all who doesnt know what he/she is talking about. With todays advanced technol-ogy, the other side may be busy fact checking while were spouting off our misinformed drivel. We should also give up the idea that were going to change the other per-sons mind. We may have a shot of get-ting through if we speak reflectively and openly, asking the other person respectful questions. However, they will shut their ears and minds if they believe we are try-ing to push our belief systems on them.If a political discussion begins to spiral out of control, it helps to take charge and be the bigger person.Ž We can remind each other that were still good friends and certainly dont want to compromise the friendship. If we know the person well enough, we might even choose to hug them and say: Even if I think youre off base, I still love you!!!!Ž A big smile may clear the air and help us look past the disagreement. Most important of all, we live in a country that preserves our rights to speak freely. Friendships have unraveled because of extreme political views. Sadly, its not uncommon to hear someone say: I can no longer be in the same room with so and so. I cant stand to hear him talk about Obama/Bush/Perry or who-ever.Ž Deciding ahead of time that some-times talking politics should be off-limits might just preserve friendships.Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 A13 MONEY & INVESTINGOperation Twist leads to instability among equitiesPossibly the first thing you are thinking is that this columns title is woefully wrong and that the rockin and rollin in equities has been caused by factors far beyond Operation Twist, the most recent of the Federal Reserves moves to help the U.S. economy. And you are right. To the fundamental analyst or investor, causative factors are assigned to a decline. These fac-tors might include: weakening U.S. eco-nomic data, extremely severe problems to hold the EU together, recent reports that Chinas industrial sector has been slowing, and, as of last week, a major SEC investigation into the accounting of Chinese Internet stocks listed on U.S. exchanges. The litany could be a lot lon-gerƒ but you get the gist that the news has been B-A-D. Equity investors might be looking more and more like Nick Nolte on one of his bad hair days. It might be the time to take a different look at how to live the equity side of life differently. Maybe a new doŽ is due. As oft written in this column, the sweet spot for U.S. equities was in the 1990s. There were many factors in our favor. Our currency was strong. Inter-est rates were falling so companies/consumers were refinancing at lower rates. Big opportunities were realized in trade expansion. The governments (state and federal) and consumer had leverage capacity and had not reached their peaks. Although much of the U.S. industrial base had left our shores, the sucking sound of service jobs leaving the U.S. was barely audible. Almost all of that has changed. Now, low-, mediumand high-end service jobs have found cheaper pastures in countries where labor is paid, on the low end, 50 cents to $2 an hour and, on the high end, 20 percent of typi-cal American wages. Federal, state and consumer groups all face severe restric-tions on debt incurrence; austerityŽ is the new buzz except for the Fed-eral Reserve, for which the rule book has been thrown away. There are some positives. U.S. technology and telecoms advance, which fattened many a wallet but also translated into job cuts and outsourcing for the masses. So the environment for investing in the 1990s was entirely different from 2000-2011ƒ and the serious money that has been made in 2000-2011 was not made in the same 1990 portfolios. (Except of course, Apple and Google.) The big talk now is whether the U.S. equity market (which, these days, looks more and more correlated with world markets) is in a bear market. Simply put, I do not think easy money is to be made on the long side of the U.S. equity market for the next several years. Hindsight is perfect and, sure, anyone can see that 2000-2011 has been net nowhereŽ for most equity investors as gains disappear, then reapper, then dis-appear again. The future? I think more of the same. Maybe the current downdraft ends with Greece getting more money, the EFSF being signed by all of the EU, maybe Bernanke announces a full dosage QE3, and maybe we are off to anoth-er leg up in equities. But how long will the the leg up last? Three months? Then another wall? As I see it, equities will look like this for several years to come: rallies into seemingly insurmountable problems of deleveraging. So what can an equity investor do? Stay with the buy and hold managers/investment approach? I dont think so. Some might say, Well, you cant time the market. All the data says that if you miss the 10 to 20 biggest up days of the market, then you miss a large chunk of the markets advance.Ž Thats true. But that retort is often given by managers who really dont have the capacity or interest or capability or desire to do anything other than sit on their invest-ments once purchased. The standard 1 percent asset management fee is paid rain or shine. Buy and hold, market timing, or cash are not the only equity options. (Higher yielding stocks providing a floorŽ is very much a viable strategy and is wor-thy of its own column.) Here are some suggestions and they are not original. These equity investing rules come from the founder of Invest-ment Business Daily, William ONeil, from his book 24 Essential Lessons for Investment Success.Ž Q Cut your losses on a stock at 8 percent below your buy pointƒŽ so as to protect yourself against the possibility of much larger losses.Ž Q Concentrate on a few high quality stocks. Theres no need to own 20 or more stocks.Ž With $1,000,000 or less, you should own five or six. But you had better really know and manage the five or six. Q When purchasing a stock, only buy half of your desired position at the ini-tial buy point, then buy a small amount more if the price rises 2 percent or 3 percent above your first, average up in price, never down.Ž Now this is far from the complete list of ONeils dos and donts but some of these rules are foundational to his approach. I would not expect any institu-tion to live by these rules as most dont have the interest, capacity, capability or desire to do soƒ even if legally possible. But, if the bear is on, these and other risk and money management tools might be helpful in protecting your portfolio. As always recommended, talk to your advisers about the suitability of any of these ideas, consult several advisers for diversity in perspectives and seek the counsel of advisers in areas of special-ization.

It would require at least 26 vans to transport this years BallenIsles team to the race on Jan. 29. The group of friends has grown to a team of about 180, and is on pace to raise more than $10,000 for Komens fight to find a cure for breast cancer. We just grew and grew,Ž Ms. Cole says of the team.

They cook nonstop for six days, with an organized precision that would match any military operation, says local businessman Tom DeRita, who founded the Big Heart Brigade 18 years ago. It started when Mr. DeRitas teenage son David asked his dad to help him cook Thanksgiving meals for some homeless veterans. The nonprofit Brigade has since grown each year. This year, requests for more than 92,000 meals were submitted. The week before the holiday the group still needed $25,000. The goal was reduced to 80,000. Last year, the Brigade delivered meals to more than 67,000 people. Its amazing what can happen when good people decide they can accomplish something,Ž says Mr. DeRita. Just a meal, a Thanksgiving meal, can put a smile on peoples faces like you wouldnt believe.Ž It costs the Heart Brigade $1.35 to provide one meal. More than 60 businesses and agencies help support the effort, in addition to the 5,000 total volunteers who help cook and deliver. The city of Palm Beach Gardens, especially the fire department, plays a big role. Scores of firefighters go through certification to cook, which takes place at Fire Station No. 3 on Northlake Boulevard. Chief Pete Bergel calls the cooking and the delivery of the dinners, Indescribable. Theres really no way to believe that you can accomplish all of that in a week, but we do,Ž the chief says. The Brigade supports other charitable causes throughout the year, but the Thanks-giving dinner is its biggest effort. Donations can be made at or by calling 502-8194 or 719-2877. Q C.B.

This should not surprise, since supporters of the notion that South Florida in general „ and Palm Beach County in particular „ can become an impor-tant player in the bioscience field on a national and international scale have done nothing to diminish or dampen those lofty aspirations. At times, the breathless rhetoric and titanic predictions of overwhelming success seem almost to be setting the stage for a colossal letdown. Yet fervent believers insist that not even the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression can derail the ultimate success of the ongoing Scripps Florida saga, which will be played out over the next decade or so. Few projects in Floridas recent history have been so heavily promoted and extravagantly ballyhooed as Scripps Flor-ida, and few issues have stoked such pas-sion and debate. The stakes, of course, are enormous. The state committed Billion-dollar Scripps FloridaDelivering on promisesScripps Florida moved into its complex in Jupiter in 2009. SEE SCRIPPS, A8 X F SCOTT B. SMITH / FLORIDA WEEKLYBy the time he was 13, Jerry Somma was already shucking oysters on Mulberry Street during the San Genarro Festival, an annual 10-day event in New York City's Little Italy that packs thousands of people shoulder-to-shoulder in streets lined with vendors, music, and food. Childhood traditions are tough to leave, and a few years after moving to South Florida Somma sat with a friend reminisc-ing about San Genarro and wondering if people in north Palm Beach County would be receptive to something like it. Apparently so: now in its eighth year, the Feast of Little Italy at Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter has grown into the larg-est Italian festival in the state, drawing bigger crowds every year. The event is laid out in traditional fashion, with vendors and food carts lining a half-mile of closed streets. We really wanted it to feel like San Genarro,Ž says Somma, president of the event, and noth-ing makes me happier than when someone comes up to me and tells me they feel like theyre in Little Italy.Ž The huge quantity of traditional food helps bring Little Italy to Jupiter, as does live entertainment.

The 44-year-old Mr. Lepore had grown weary of what seemed to be an endless procession of wheezing Republican relics who took to podi-ums across Florida and lulled their audiences into hypnotic slumbers. Mr. Lepore yearned for a fresh voice. He wanted to hear from a Republican who was eager, smart, staunchly conservative and of his own generation. In short, Mr. Lepore was desperate for someone … anyone, really … who could gin up a little excitement in advance of the midterm elec-tions. Almost on a whim, Mr. Lepore turned to Marco Rubio, the little-known former speaker of the Flor-ida House of Representatives, who just weeks ear-lier … and only days before his 38th birthday … had announced he was seeking the Republican nomi-Meek, Crist and Rubio battle for Senate seat in November C.B.

It is the largest fundraiser for the Komen South Florida Affiliate and has the distinction of being the first of Komen Races to be held each year. Sponsorship applications and registration for participants may be completed at The affiliate serves Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties. The 2011 Warriors in Pink are:Q Nancy Brinker of Palm Beach founded Susan G. Komen for the Cure in 1982 after promising her dying sister she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. Ambassador Brinker is considered the leader of the global breast cancer movement for her role in Komen, now the worlds largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activ-ists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Q Arlene Saranik, 63, of Boca Raton was diagnosed with breast cancer 16 years ago „ thanks to a mammogram „ and underwent a mastectomy and chemo. Komen has been part of her life for 10 years. After she and her husband first did the race, she was so impressed she volunteered and never turned back. Her children are joining her at the 2011 race. She and husband Herb have three children and two grandchildren.

B1 X to talk about his golfing buddy Gary Wiren, who lives in North Palm Beach and who owns one of the top collections of golf memo-rabilia in the country. As for moguls, we have profiled them, too. H. Ross Johnson lives in Jupiter and granted us one of only a handful of interviews he has given in the 23 years since he shook the corporate world with his attempted leveraged buyout of RJR Nabisco. But the rich and powerful are not our sole focus. Writer Athena Ponushus gave a voice this spring to the African-Americans killed during the 1928 hurricane, talking to survivors and family members who otherwise would have gone forgotten. Tim Norris took us on a journey through the workings of local drawbridges. How can we cross a span without contemplating the mechanics of the bridge and the patience of the people who operate it? How many of us look to see if that is indeed country singer Alan Jack-son waving to the bridge tender from his yacht? There is an art to reporting and an art to writing like that. As for the arts, and music, we offer coverage that matters, with crisp, lively advances on shows. Our in-depth look at the state of the arts in northern Palm Beach County gave a glimpse at the wealth of cultural gems the area offers, from the 150-year-old Jupi-ter Inlet Lighthouse, the oldest existing structure in Palm Beach County, to the 48-year-old Light-house ArtCenter, the northern regions oldest arts organization. Continued coverage of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre led to a peek inside actor housing, and interviews with everyone from a Star WarsŽ geek to an Irish tenor. That in turn led to opportunities to meet budding talents „ the students who draw audiences by the hundreds to see their work onstage. We also helped bring closure in the aftermath of Florida Stages closing, with sensitive coverage of what the theaters loss means to the local and national theater scenes. Other members of our community are human „ and not so human. Take the Loggerhead Marinelife Center. We brought the most complete coverage anywhere of the trials and tribulations of Andre the green tur-tle, who survived massive injuries, thanks to the efforts of everyone from veterinarians to orthodontists to volunteers. When Andre returned to the ocean, we were there. And when he died after that return to the sea, we explained how his treat-ment made a difference in the way injured sea turtles would be treated in the future. One would think newspapers are an endangered species, much as sea turtles. But Florida Weekly has bucked that trend and is thriving, even as its mainstream counterparts have continued their retreats. We expect that growth to continue. Since Florida Weeklys founding five years ago in Fort Myers, it has expanded by one edition a year „ Naples, Punta Gorda, and last year, northern Palm Beach County. Next month, Florida Weekly will launch a Bonita Springs edi-tion. Its business plan for that success is simple: Offer advertisers an inspired, economical alterna-tive to mainstream press by zero-ing on target markets. In other words, our readers like to keep it local and keep it fresh. So do we.Florida Weeklys editorial and advertising sales staff knows its community of businesses, from mom and pop stores to larger retail chains. And with more than 600 locations in which to find the newspaper, we make it easy for our advertisers to reach their cli-entele. Its with that attitude that we anticipate continued growth and continued coverage, all while tell-ing the stories of our community. Q ANNIVERSARYFrom page 1

A12 XIts the time of the year when grocery stores are lined with Eas-ter treats and Passover foods. Your faith will determine which aisle you choose. Imagine not being able to pick up a box of matzoh or carton of crme filled chocolate eggs. Free-dom from oppression is part of our American experience. But for many it is still a dream. Rabbi Howard Shapiro of The Jewish Community Centers of the Greater Palm Beaches says, Passover celebrates spring and hope. In a world of earthquakes and meltdowns Passover doesnt promise „ it asks us to hope for a better tomorrow.Ž Passover remains a symbol of freedom triumphing over oppres-sion. The annual spring holiday „ though typically celebrated and observed by Jewish people „ is a reminder that freedom is obtain-able with hard work and even suf-fering. This is at the crux of Jews struggle from about 400 years of bondage from the Egyptian pha-raohs thousands of years ago. The story goes: the Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians and forced to toil under their tyr-anny. The Jews decided they had enough of being enslaved and decided to leave and be free. Moses, who had been summoned by God to help free the Jews, beseeched the Egyptian rulers to let the Jews go. The rul-ers refused and a series of events unfolded: plagues of locusts, water turning to blood and the final and harshest event „ the slaying of every first-born Egyptian. The Egyptians let the Jews go, and so began their exodus from Egypt and to freedom. It is the events that surround the exodus that is marked and rec-reated every Passover. The holiday became named Passover after God UNDER A BOATS ROAR AND ROLL, ITS buck-and-wing in wind on water, a shimmering mystery beckons. It carries with it an even greater unknown, a question of living. The ocean off Jupiter Inlet is teeming with life. Some of it, these men along the gunwales hope, will take their bait.

Ross Johnson was a household name. The former RJR Nabisco chiefs $15 billion bid to take the company private led to a bid-ding war with Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. That bidding war ended with Kohlberg Kravis winning RJR Nabisco for $25 billion. It was the biggest transaction of its day, and it left Mr. Johnson out of a job. But losers still can be winners: Reports say he walked away from RJR Nabisco with an estimated $60 million in salary and benefits. During the takeover battle, he was featured on the Dec. 5, 1988, cover of Time magazine. Later, he was portrayed by no less than James Garner in a television drama about the RJR deal called Barbarians at the Gate.Ž Now that RJR deal is in the history books, and Mr. Johnson is enjoying his retirement in Jupiter.

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.

Each year, thousands of the reptiles return to beaches near where they were hatched to lay eggs and repeat the cycles that have continued through millennia.

This year, numbers are up.The current loggerhead nest count is about 150 percent over what weve seen by this date in the past few years,Ž wrote Marinelife Center biologist Kelly Martin. Green turtle numbers are way up as well.

That is on both Juno and Jupiter beaches combined, Ms. Mar-tin wrote. The Marinelife Centers team has identified 471 leatherback turtles since the project began in 2001.

Rick Scott has created a furor involving Florida State Parks. The earlier firestorm involved a proposal to build world-class golf courses and luxury resorts in some state parks (with golfing legend Jack Nicklaus of Palm Beach Gardens awarded exclusive rights to build the courses). That plan died after it sparked widespread public opposition. This time, the controversy involves a proposal to place camp sites and spaces for recreational vehicles in up to 56 parks that currently prohibit such usage. At press time, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in Palm Beach County was on the list of 56 for possible camp-ing expansion. The Department of Environmental Protection is holding hearings on the proposals, but these hearings involve three parks elsewhere, so there are no imminent plans involv-ing the MacArthur, on the north end of Singer Island. And if opponents have their way, the DEPs plan will die a quick death, just as the golf course idea did. If the DEP presses ahead and opposition continues to be strong, the decision could ulti-mately rest with the governor and his Cabinet. This is a very slippery slope,Ž says Frank Jackalone, staff director for the Sierra Club. The governor acts like a bulldozer and does what he wants to do, regardless of the consequences.Ž As with the golf course proposal, the campground plan involves privatiza-tion. The new camp sites would be built and operated by private firms. Mr. Jackalone worries that scant concern will be given to environmental impact and aesthetic concerns. In fact, many critics say the idea is nothing but a money-making scheme and another sign of Gov. Scotts lack of interest in state parks. HE IS ONE OF PALM BEACH COUNTYS movers and shakers.

License-plate sculptures adorn the walls of his office, which has a view of the upstairs passageway at Downtown. But those license plates are purely decorative.

Rachel Ibarra got back on the horse.Her saga „ and saga it is, no mere short story „ begins in 2007, when she was riding a horse named Jazz in the woods between Hood and Donald Ross roads in Palm Beach Gardens. Suddenly and inex-plicably, Jazz collapsed beneath her. The jolt sent her flying over the horses ears to land face-first, sliding across the sandy ground. Jazz then stood up and stepped on her left hand, breaking the pinky at mid-finger. Four surgeries, one metal plate and seven screws later, the pinky remains bent at a 45-degree angle. Most of the time, Ms. Ibarra simply ignores it. Its just a stupid finger,Ž she says. I have nine others.Ž And that is the kind of attitude that got her through the rest of the ordeal: The slide across sand shredded the lower portion ofEquestrian finds victory in retreats Download our FREE App todayAvailable on the iTunes App Store.

And the program that launched the SEALs started in Fort Pierce. The sleepy town in St. Lucie County, about an hours drive north of the Palm Beaches, was home to a World War II mili-tary base that is now recognized as the birthplace of the U.S. Navys Frogmen, predecessors to the SEALs „ SEa, Air and Land teams „ that make up the Navys principal special opera-tions force. The town also is home to the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum, which honors SEALs, Naval Combat Demolition Units, or NCDUs, and Underwater Demolition Units, or UDTs.

Mr. Billie, like Moses, was spared certain death in infancy through the intervention of two women, and he would later in life have his own burning bushŽ moment (which involved his vision of large-scale, legalized casino gambling). As with Moses, Mr. Billie led his people toward the Promised Land (finan-cially speaking, in the case of the Seminoles), only to find that mis-steps made along the way would prove to be his undoing. And, yes, the 67-year-old former tribal chief has spent considerable time (10 years or so) wandering in a personal wil-derness of his own making. But while Moses only caught a glimpse of Canaan, Mr. Billie actu-ally set foot in his Promised Land, only to be booted out by the tribal hierarchy. Now, he wants back in, as evidenced by the fact he is running to reclaim the chairmanship of the Seminole Tribe. Mr. Billie attempted to recapture past glory four years ago, but he was kept off the tribal ballot through technicalities involving his resi-dence on the Brighton Reservation in Glades County. A couple of weeks ago, though, Mr. Billie was officially certified as a candidate for the tribal election to be held on May 8.

But that wasnt enough for the company to survive a recession, the Bernard Madoff scandal and about $1.5 million in debt.

Retired banker Gomoll stressed that he has lived in Palm Beach Gardens for 27 years, is not tied to any political faction, developer or special interest group and is not taking contributions. I am funding this all by myself because I want to serve the community,Ž he said.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 A17 BY KENNETH GORDONSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe divorce rate in the U.S. has remained at about 50 percent for the last decade. Of the marriages that do not end in divorce, there is a reasonable number of couples who are not happy. The reality is most marriages are not the profoundly loving and fulfilling partner-ships that many expect them to be. The primary culprit is unrealistic expectations. While almost everyone has reasons for getting married, there is seldom a cohesive joint vision for the future. I have broken down the process into four stages. It is important to note that the stages of divorce outlined below are exclusively from a divorce lawyers per-spective and not intended to represent the opinion or information available through a mental health professional.ContemplationThe harm suffered by families in a divorce usually begins long before an action is filed. Most often the acrimony, loss of trust, and most importantly loss of communication begin long before divorce. The identification of when the breakdown of a marriage began to occur is sometimes helpful in allowing a per-son to face and confront the reality of their situation. Action The antidotes to suspicion and fear are action and information. In the divorce world this consists of memorializing your position in writing to the court, and getting information in the way of documents, testimony and legal research. During the action stage a client who has been in denial about a divorce, or someone who has been paralyzed with either anger or grief, is finally able to begin working on some-thing tangible which in turn assists with the gradual perception of reality.AcceptanceOftentimes divorce cases are mediated early in the case to either address pressing temporary issues, or in an attempt to settle the case prior to spend-ing substantial amounts of time, effort and money. It is interesting that many cases do not settle despite relatively simple issues. A common explanation is that one or both parties have not yet been able to accept their situation. Acceptance is a necessary component of moving forward.Vision It is important to have a clear vision of what your life will be like after divorce. It is important to realize that change may be good, and that each per-son has an opportunity to lead the life that they choose.

Call Doreen Nystrom At 561-209-7878 Zoltar the Fortune Teller is the coinoperated machine in the movie BigŽ that changed Tom Hankss character into a grownup. Coin-operated fortune-telling machines were popular at amusement parks and penny arcades in the 1930s and after. They featured exotic figures like gypsies, mummies, skulls, devils or wizards, as well as old women and Puss-in-Boots „ any character that seemed magical. There also is a fortune-telling machine named Zoltan that often is confused with Zoltar. The name ZoltanŽ may have come from the Hungarian word for Sultan and the figure is dressed like a sultan. The first fortune-telling machines probably were made in the 1890s, and the first electric coin-operated machines in about 1910. Experts say that Zoltan was introduced in 1965 and that only 50 or 60 were made. After the movie BigŽ came out, some reproductions were made of fiberglass. A dime went in the slot. Later models required a quarter. Most of these coin-operated fortunetelling machines sell for high prices today, about $3,000 to $5,000. Q: I have a pine colonial-style rocker. The top is decorated in a muted gold flo-ral pattern. It was manufactured by L & Z Kamman Co. of Gardner, Mass. What is its value? A: Brothers Lee D. Kamman and Zora R. Kamman and their father, I.B. Kam-man, founded L & Z Kamman Co. in 1946. The company designed and manufactured chairs. Many were decorated by hand. L & Z Kamman made the chairs for the renovated Fords Theatre in Washington, D.C., in the 1960s. The company went out of business in about 1991. Your chair is not old enough to be an antique and it was not made by a famous company. So it would sell as used furniture for about one-third the cost of a new rocker. Q: I understand there are special laws and restrictions regarding ivory. Could you please tell me what the rules are? My father was an exporter who traveled all over the world during the 1940s and 50s, and he brought me back many pieces when I was growing up. A: International, federal and state laws govern the sale, import, export and posses-sion of ivory, whether from elephant, whale, hippo, warthog or wild boar. The laws are lengthy and complex but generally focus on preventing the killing of endangered animals that produce ivory. Any ivory items your father gave you more than 50 years ago are not governed by these laws, so if you want to sell them you are free to do so. You can find details about the laws online. Q: I just came across a whiskey bottle I found 41 years ago in some woods. The bottle is a flask that holds 12 ounces. Printed on the front of the bottle are the words Holbrook & Winfree FlaskŽ and below that the words Holbrook & Winfree, Trade Street, Winston, N.C.Ž Can you give me any history on the bottle and its value? A: R.T. Holbrook and Julian Winfree operated a saloon and restaurant called The Criterion in Winston. A 1904 city directory includes an ad for the restaurant that states its first-class in every respectŽ and serves meals at all hours, Holbrook & Winfree, Proprietors.Ž Next to it was an ad for Hol-brook & Winfree, Dealers in Foreign and Domestic Liquors, Wines, Ales, Porters, Champagnes, Cigars, &c.Ž Winston merged with Salem, N.C., in 1913 to become Win-ston-Salem, so your flask was made before that time. Value: $200 to $250. Q: Last summer, you answered a question about a pair of butt onhole scissors marked Korns Patent.Ž You said the patent was granted to George W. Korn of New York City in 1881. I have an identical pair of buttonhole scissors embossed with the same 247,766 patent number. The other mark on it is different, though. Its Henry Sears & Son 1865Ž instead of Korns Pat-ent.Ž Is my pair 20 years older than the Korn pair you wrote about? A: The 1865 date in the Henry Sears & Son mark is the year H. Sears Manufac-turing Co. opened in Chicago. The com-pany became Henry Sears & Son in 1883 and added the year 1865 to its trademark in about 1897. Although the company had changed ownership by then, it continued in business under the s ame name until 1959. Through the years, Henry Sears & Son sold all sorts of pocketknives, firearms, ammu-nition, tools and sporting goods. Your but-tonhole scissors were made no earlier than the late 1890s. By then, Sears may have been assigned rights to Korns patent. Tip: Dont ever take your rings off and put them on the edge of the sink when you wash your hands. They can fall into the sink and down the drain or be forgotten and left behind. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

The music of the Greatest Generation is still popular with the next genera-tion. That is what the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Guild is counting on. Members are hoping audiences will be In the MoodŽ for the Glenn Miller Orchestra, which performs a concert Oct. 9 that will benefit the guild, which raises money for the theater and for its Conservatory of Performing Arts. Gary Tole, the bands current lead-er, says he also is a member of the Greatest Genera-tion. Well, maybe not THAT Greatest Generation, but a generation or two after that, in which his parents still listened to music of the Big Bands. I grew up listening to every big band leader you could think of,Ž says Mr. Tole by phone from Greenwood, S.C. It turns out his parents were professional musicians, and those connections came in handy. When I was 19 years old, my dad got a call from the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and that they needed a first trombonist,Ž Mr. Tole says. He toured with the band for four years. In 1978, Mr. Tole moved to southern California, and was hired to play first trombone with the Harry James Orchestra. When that gig ended, he joined the Les Brown Band of Renown and recorded television shows with Bob Hope.

The only other way to see performances this creative is to hop on a plane and fly to New York City. RIAF presents performances that are new, fresh and unexpected „ and rarely, if ever, seen in Florida. A creative collaboration between the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and New Yorks Baryshnikov Arts Center, the festival is now celebrating its third year. Originally planned as a biannual event, it was so success-ful in its first year that it immediately became an annual affair. And this year theyve added an extra day, so it runs Oct. 11-16. Its the ultimate buffet feast in performing arts.Attendees can choose among a variety of acts; most performances run for 60 minutes. (An exception: the highly original and experimental Wooster Group presents Ham-let,Ž with a running time of 150 minutes.) In addition to the main acts (see schedule on page A26), the festival also presents jazz concerts at sunset and lec-tures and panels about the visual and performing arts.

Her gaze stopped near the middle of the row. Oh. My. God.Ž she said. The woman stood and pulled a book from the shelf and held it aloft for everyone at the table to see. 1,001 Ways to Please a Husband,Ž she read. She sat back down and flipped through the opening pages. Published in 1958.Ž She read the introduction in a theatrical voice. Scheherazade, the wife of a powerful Sultan, kept him amused and fascinated by her storytelling for a thousand and one nights,Ž the book began. Scheherazade won the love of the mighty ruler by pleasing him; it was as simple as that. Todays bride, while hardly in equal peril „Ž Hardly in equal peril?Ž the womans husband asked. Is this a cookbook or a survival guide?Ž Let me finish,Ž she said. Todays bride can please her husband in a thou-sand and one ways and keep not only herself, but her marriage alive.Ž The book was organized into sections using diary entries from an imagery new bride, Jane.Ž In her journal, Jane chronicles the menus that span her first year of marriage. She hosts her first cocktail party (menu: shrimp mold, avocado dip, tiny meatballs) and Saint Paddys day feast (corned beef and cabbage, of course). The diary entry that really raised the female hackles at the table came with the inauspicious title: My Japanese War Bride.Ž Tonight I met my first Japanese war bride,Ž the fictitious Jane writes. Her name in English is, believe it or not, Peach Blossom.Ž Jane notices how P.B.Ž never interrupts her husband. She responds with, Yes, Frank dearŽ if he asks her something. When he raises a fresh ciga-rette to his lips, she runs to light it. All evening long, she looked at her lord and master adoringly,Ž Jane writes. Shes joking, right?Ž someone from across the table asked. I dont think so,Ž the woman reading said. Listen to the next line: In retrospect, I realize now that P.B. did everything she could to build up her husbands male ego, whereas I did noth-ing but tear it down. Ž We all cringed.The book styled itself as a cookbook, full of recipes and kitchen tips, but really it was a 1950s-era guide to marriage, with lessons on how to serve a man and how to behave. Young women of that period learned how to make a roast beef dinner for a men-only evening and then politely excuse themselves to their mother-in-laws (page 223), as well as how to hide their hurt when another woman called asking for their husband (page 78). People mourn the rise in the divorce rate over the last 50 years, the time since 1,001 WaysŽ was written. Per-haps women are partly to blame: Weve become less accommodating, less eager to serve. Weve learned that, unlike Scheherazade, our lives dont depend on pleas-ing men.

PAGE 26 FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 in the knowAsphalt Orchestra is a unique marching band, and not just because is lacks a football team or school. As its name implies, it takes to the sidewalks and streets to perform. The group made its debut in the summer of 2009 in New York City as part of the Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. We basically ran an ambush flash mob there every night (for five nights), right before the mainstage and Mostly Mozart started,Ž says Ken Thomson, the bands co-director and saxophone player. We wanted to bring all these crowds together, play some music they may not have heard before.Ž The word spread, and people started turning up just to hear Asphalt Orches-tra. It was such a successful run, they repeated it the next summer for anoth-er five nights. This avant-garde, 12-piece group likes to make big entrances, though admittedly, its virtually impossible for a marching band to be demure. The first night,Ž Mr. Thomson says, we literally came out of the subway onto the plaza, while playing. The next year, we hailed a bunch of taxis and came out of them, one by one. The sousaphone player was standing on the corner, looking a little forlorn, looking for us.Ž Asphalt Orchestra will perform at the Opening Night RIAF Block Party 2011, which takes place from 7-10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11. Tickets are $150 ($135 for Ringling Museum members). Mr. Thomson visited Sarasota in May. It was the first time Id seen the grounds at the Ringling, and I was blown away,Ž he says. Its a really unusual venue, and I dont think well get the chance to perform in something quite like that, unless we go to Italy.Ž The group customizes its performances to each space, he explains. Before every show, we go into the space and make a game plan and map out the show to that space,Ž he explains, adding, Some of our best choreography is modular, so it works in multiples of space and we can fit it (into wherever we perform).Ž Asphalt Orchestra is not your typical marching band, and neither is its rep-ertoire. Forget about John Philip Sousa and military marching music. Asphalt Orchestra plays music by composers as diverse as Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, Bjork and the Swedish metal band Meshuggah. Half its repertoire consists of music written specifically for the group. It has commissioned music from Yoko Ono, David Byrne and St. Vincent and Goran Bregovic, among others. Mr. Bregovic grew up playing rock music in Serbia, then transitioned into composing movie scores. He is one of the great Balkan composers who works in traditional Balkan melodies with his own personal style,Ž Mr. Thomson says. We asked him to do a piece, and he hit it out of the ball park.Ž He describes the resulting ChampagneŽ as the right balance of being deliberately technically tricky and also an amazing, fun piece to play. Its always a hit. There are some lyrics to that piece that we shout along with.ŽAlways about repertoireFrom the beginning, Asphalt Orchestra has been very repertoire-driven, Mr. Thomson says. We came at it wanting to do unusual music in public spaces.Ž Along with Mr. Thomson on alto saxophone, the group consists of co-di-rector Jessica Schmitz, who plays pic-colo; Alex Hamlin, soprano saxophone; Peter Hess, tenor saxophone; Ben Holmes and Stephanie Richards, trumpet; Tim Vaughn and Jen Baker, trombone; Ken Bentley, sousaphone; Sunny Jain, snare drum; Nick Jenkins, bass drum; and Yuri Yamashita, quad toms. The orchestra developed at the Bang on a Can Summer Festival with musi-cians playing interesting and experi-mental music in the community of North Adams, Mass. We got the sense of how it was working and thought we might want to expand it into something bigger, a professional band with hotshot musi-ciansƒ the highest level of musician-ship and performance,Ž Mr. Thomson says. Susan Marshall and Mark DeChiazza choreograph their moves and deter-mine how the band dresses. Its challenging to play complex music and move at the same time,Ž Mr. Thomson says. Its important for us to interact with the audience as much as possible, so well force that interac-tion.Ž Sometimes people will get out of the way. But sometimes they dont. We did a show in London and the audience members in this town square wanted to get up into our faces and dance right next to us,Ž he says. I cant guarantee that will happen in Sarasota, but you never know. No two performances are the same.Ž Q How do you solve a problem like Maria? By transforming the classic movie The Sound of MusicŽ into dance and casting not one, but three Marias „ one of them a male. Why three Marias?Ž asks choreographer Doug Elkins. He answers his own question: Im interested in the emotional idea of Mariaƒ Maria-ness. Who is this person whos going to heal this family? And also,Ž he adds, because everyone wants to be Maria.Ž Mr. Elkins describes his dance, Fraulein Maria,Ž as, for want of a bet-ter word, a deconstruction of the Rod-gers and Hammerstein Julie Andrews/Christopher Plummer soundtrack of The Sound of Music, (in the same spirit) that John Coltrane did his ver-sion of My Favorite Things. Its my take on The Sound of Music.Ž He calls it a kind of odd dialogue with the audienceŽ „ a flip book of The Sound of Music as designed by Joseph Cornell. Im using it as a vessel, a kind of meditation on making something,Ž he explains. Talking with Mr. Elkins is a deliciously non-linear experience; during the course of a conversation he refer-ences, among other things, French New Wave movies, the Old Testament book of Ruth, Jean Cocteau, the poet Charles Simic, graffiti tagging, Robert Rauschenbergs combines, Woody Allen, the Marx Brothers and the childrens book Stone Soup.Ž His dance is equally as eclectic, combining, as a New York Dance and Per-formance Award cites, ƒthe worlds of downtown dance, Martha Graham, Willi Ninja, Balanchine, hip-hop, vogu-ing, stepping, stomping, whirlingƒŽ Like the protagonist in Stone Soup,Ž Mr. Elkins adds disparate things into the pot, until hes created something unique that pleases and delights. Its a meditation on art making,Ž he Asphalt Orchestra: Taking it to the streets Fraulein Maria kicks up her heels Ringling International Arts Festival>> When: Oct. 11-16 >> Where: Various theaters and locations at the Ringling Museum of Art, 5401 Bay Shore Drive, Sarasota >> Cost: $20-$50 per performance; opening night is $150 >> Info: (941) 360-7399, (800) 660-4278 or O in the know O BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@” BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@” CONTINUED ON PAGE A27 XSTEPHANIE BERGER / COURTESY PHOTOThe Asphalt Orchestra Ringling International Arts Festival 2011 Schedule Asphalt OrchestraThis 12-piece experimental marching band was described by the New York Times as “…part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.” It willl perform at the Opening Night RIAF Block Party 2011.7-10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11; $150“Hamlet”The Wooster Group The Wooster Group repurposes Richard Burton’s 1964 Broadway production of “Hamlet” in this 150-minute performance, reconstructing it from fragments of the lm made of his performance.4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 12-13; $501:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Oct. 14-16; $60 “Fraulein Maria”Doug Elkins and Friends Using the soundtrack for “The Sound of Music,” choreographer Doug Elkins reinterprets the classic musical into an inventive and humorous dance that includes hip-hop, voguing and stepping (65 minutes).5 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 12; $20, $30 and $405 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16; $30, $40 and $50 Piano Foursome Four acclaimed pianists — Inon Barnatan, Adam Golka, Anne-Marie McDermott and Pedja Muzijevic — perform short solo works before joining forces for a rare performance of Carl Czerny’s “Quatuor Concertant for four pianos” (60 minutes).7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, and 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13; $20, $30 and $40 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, and 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15; $30, $40 and $50 Brooklyn Rider An adventurous, genre-defying string quartet that combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that’s attracting legions of fans and drawing critical acclaim from classical, world and rock critics (60 minutes).7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13; $20, $30 and $401 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct 15 and 16; $30, $40 and $50 Meklit Hadero: Songs of Multiplicity Meklit Hadero blends jazz with multi-cultural musical styles (50 minutes).9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13; $20, $30 and $406:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14-15; $30, $40 and $50 “Canta Tangos”Soledad Villamil and Hermanos Macana Actress/singer Soledad Villamil, of “El secreto de sus ojos,” which won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, sings with passion while Hermanos Macana, the dancing brothers duo of Buenos Aires, perform the tango with athleticism and grace (60 minutes).8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, and 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13; $20, $30 and $40 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, and 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15; $30, $40 and $50“Out of Time”Colin Dunne Internationally acclaimed Irish step dancer Colin Dunne brings movement, sound and image together to create a provocative dialogue between past and present. “Out of Time” is an homage to Irish step dancing and an investigation of the dancer’s relationship with a tradition that has shaped his life (65 minutes).8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13; $20, $30 and $402 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, and 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16; $30, $40 and $50 “Terra Firma”Company Stefanie Batten Bland/sbb birdlegs A native New Yorker now living in Paris, Stefanie Batten Bland is often called the “Josephine Baker of today.” “Terra Firma” is a search for solid ground, exploring questions of stability on and off boats and the diverse passengers that take them (45 minutes).4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12; $20, $30 and $404 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, and 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16; $30, $40 and $50

My body of work is the illegitimate child of a Ger-trude Stein novel and a kung fu film. Some people start laughing (when I say that), but those who know my work say Yes!ŽA lifelong fascinationMr. Elkins, who, as a young man, was a graffiti artist and breakdancer, was first intro-duced to The Sound of MusicŽ when his grandmother took him to see it when he was 5. I was fascinated by it,Ž he says. Then, in the same year, he performed Do-Re-MiŽ with his classmates. It was the first thing Id ever sung on stage with other children,Ž he recalls. I was re, a drop of golden sun. Id practice the song and secretly dance in my bedroom with a flashlight, wearing my oaktag sun (hanging from my neck) with purple yarn.Ž At the show, when it was his turn for his line, he stepped forward and produced the flashlight and did a flashlight dance. I thought itd be a really cool surprise.Ž Years later, as a parent, watching yet again The Sound of MusicŽ on DVD with his children, he had an epiphany. And so he created Fraulein Maria,Ž a dance set to the movies soundtrack. The movie, he feels, is universally known, a part of our collective memory. If you saw the movie when you were young, great. If you remember the Mary Martin musical, great. If you were eat-ing Passover or Easter dinner and it was playing on the TV in the den behind you, that counts, too; it was on the television, and you vaguely remember it playing over your shoulder.Ž As he describes it, the story is about this young womanƒ in the midst of everything, a trickster character. Heres this woman whos part of the abbey, and she wants to be a nun, but she doesnt fit in, shes an outsider. Its the modified heros journey. They send her to another place thats structured and patriarchal. Its a wounded family; the mother is missing. How does she teach the family to heal? By teaching them to sing and put on little shows for each other.ŽEverybody loves MariaTo use the music, he had to request permission from the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization. When they learned that one of the Marias is danced by a man, they asked if it was a drag show. He told them no. Then they asked, Why are some of the men women and women men?Ž and he said, Thats the way the world is.Ž He invited them to come see the dance. If they absolutely hated it, he promised, it would never be performed again. But like everyone else who saw the show, the Rodgers and Hammerstein people loved it and gave their permis-sion for the soundtrack to be used. Fraulein MariaŽ debuted at Joes Pub at the Public Theater in New York City in December 2006 and was reprised the following year. Then, a year later, it was performed before nearly 3,000 people at Lincoln Centers Out of Doors Festival. One of Mr. Elkins favorite performances took place at Jacobs Pillow in the Berkshires. It was a sold-out house, and he was performing solo to Climb Evry Mountain.Ž His daughter, sitting in the front, decided to stand up and sing along with the soundtrack. Then she looked back at the crowd as if to say, Well?Ž, and people started singing with her, as if it were a sing-along Sound of Music,Ž Mr. Elkins recalls. Then his young son, who had his own version of the dance that incor-porated some Michael Jackson moves, stood up and began dancing. So the audience is singing along to it, and my son is doing a dance back to me,Ž Mr. Elkins says. The audience became a participant. Its one of my favorite performances.Ž Q W FROM PAGE A26CHRISTOPHER ROESING / COURTESY PHOTOChoreographer Doug Elkins and the dancers of “Fraulein Maria.”

More recently, he has performed with Legends of Swing. Now Im back leading this wonderful band,Ž he says of his current job, which began early this year. Mr. Miller died a hero during World War II, when the transport plane on which he was flying disappeared some-where between England and France, and his band was re-formed in the 1950s. So whos listening to the band now?Its definitely a mixed audience,Ž Mr. Tole says. Last night we performed at a university and it was packed with kids 25 and younger, and an older crowd that was 45 and above. It was great fun seeing youth out there dancing.Ž While Mr. Miller was a trombonist, his big band had a sound known for its inter-play between clarinet and the tenor sax. That interplay served the band well in such recordings as Tuxedo Junction,Ž Moonlight SerenadeŽ and Penn sylvania-6 5000.Ž And they no doubt will be on the bill at the Maltz. But tune your ears to other songs.We do the classic songs, they werent recorded hits, but were big for the band,Ž Mr. Tole says, mentioning the song Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.Ž Theres a lot of fun, high-energy songs to the show.Ž And theres a lesson to be learned from his predecessor. I think if you play the arrangements if you they were meant to be played out of the original book, then you hear some-thing that can be popular,Ž Mr. Tole says. Know how to work your audience and deliver the music.Ž Mr. Miller was not known for his improvisation work. He pretty much stuck to his score,Ž Mr. Tole says. As does Mr. Tole.Im very, very versed with my music,Ž he says, adding, I like everything from jazz to country to rock n roll. As long as its good, Im fine with it. Good music is good music.Ž In addition to trombone, Mr. Tole also plays bass trombone and euphonium. The musical tradition continues in the Tole family. Mr. Toles eldest son plays drums and his middle son plays bass. They play music more from the enjoyment aspect,Ž he says. I make a living doing music.Ž Doing music for Mr. Tole means hitting the road. We do about 300 shows a year. About 42 to 46 weeks a year were on the road,Ž he says. And though the Glenn Miller Orchestras home base is in Lake Mary, near Orlando, its musicians are from all over. One guys from Anchorage, anothers from Pennsylv ania,Ž he says. We find our way to get home every once in awhile.Ž Q MILLERFrom page 23COURTESY PHOTOGlenn Miller >> The Glenn Miller Orchestra — 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

FLORIDA WEEKLYA32 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2011 Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A difficult experience begins to ease. Thats the good news. The not-so-good news is a possible complication that could prolong the problem awhile lon-ger. Q SCORPIO (Oct ober 23 t o November 21) Your self-confidence gets a much-needed big boost as you start to unsnarl that knotty financial problem. Expect some help from a surprising source. Q SAGITTARIUS (No vember 22 to December 21) Congratulations. Any lin-gering negative aftereffects from that not-so-pleasant workplace situation are all but gone. Its time now to focus on the positive. Q CAPRICORN (Dec ember 2 2 to January 19) Your self-confidence grows stronger as you continue to take more control of your life. Arrange for some well-earned fun and relaxation with someone special. Q AQUARIUS (J anuary 2 0 to February 18) As usual, youve been concerned more about the needs of others than your own. You need to take time for yourself so that you can replenish all that spent energy. Q PISCES (F ebruary 1 9 to March 20) Stronger planetary influences indicate a growing presence of people eager to help you navigate through the rough seas that might mark your career course. Q ARIES (March 21 t o April 19) Youre moving from a relatively stable situation to one that appears to be laced with perplexity. Be patient. Youll eventually get answers to help clear up the confusion around you. Q TAURUS (April 20 t o May 20) A vexing situation tempts you to rush to set it all straight. But its best to let things sort themselves out so that you can get a better picture of the challenge youre facing. Q GEMINI (Ma y 21 t o June 20) Financial matters could create some confu-sion, especially with a torrent of advice pouring in from several sources. Resist acting on emotion and wait for the facts to emerge. Q CANCER (J une 21 t o July 22) That goal youve set is still in sight and is still in reach. Stay with the course that youre on. Making too many shifts in direction now could create another set of problems. Q LEO (J uly 23 to August 22) It might be time t o confront a trouble-making associate and demand some answers. But be prepared for some surprises that could lead you to make a change in some long-standing plans. Q VIRGO (A ug ust 23 to September 22) Congratulations. Youre making great progress in sorting out all that confusion that kept you from making those important decisions. Youre on your way now.
