Fashion, for instance. Bell bottoms disappeared overnight, it seems. Do you remember when fondue was all the rage? Yes, trends come and go and thats no big deal, really. But when did compassion, the simple act of caring for others, become out of vogue? There is a feeling of ill will abroad in the land. Herman Cain, the Republican presidential contender, says if you are poor and in dire straits, it most likely is your fault. The poor and the middle class are derided. Things have been skewed toward the most affluent and those who have the power and the clout. It almost seems as if compassion is seen as a fault. Heres a story. I was a little boy. Thanksgiving was approaching. I accom-panied my mother to the grocery story. In front of us in the check-out line was a middle-aged black woman whose attire suggested that she was a domestic.Ž She had one item: a 10-pound turkey. The price was something like 15 cents a pound. When the checker told her she owed $1.50, she reeled. She thought the price was 15 cents even. I only got 70 cents,Ž she said. What followed was one of those awful silences. The checker said she would have to return the turkey to the freezer. Oh, this has happened to me before,Ž my mother said. Just put it on my tab. Im sure well run into one another again, and you can pay me then.Ž The woman mumbled her thanks and left, obviously embarrassed by her mis-take. After we got home, I helped my mother put away the groceries. Suddenly, from nowhere it seemed, she burst into tears. I was stunned. I do not believe I had seen my moth-er cry before. I knew not what to say. Finally, I said, Mama, whats wrong?Ž She dabbed at her eyes and said, That poor woman at the grocery store. She was so humiliated, you could see it. Im sure she works harder than any two people we know, and she cant afford a turkey for Thanksgiving.Ž I stood mute as my mother continued. Do you realize how lucky we are? People would give anything to live like we do. Dont ever forget that.Ž Here is another little story „ this one involving my dad. Around Christmas, my father, who was a mortgage banker, got all sorts of gifts from people he did business with. Ethics prevented him from accepting them (it was mostly fruit and other edibles). So, he would take the fruit and such to the Rescue Mission in downtown Atlanta. He always enlisted me to help him deliver the bounty. One evening, we had five crates of oranges to haul. It was bru-tally cold, and it took us about three trips to get the fruit to the missions kitchen. When we returned to the car, my father looked into the back seat. A beautiful overcoat and a pair of expensive gloves were gone. My dad was something of a clothes horse, so this was not an insignificant event. After he checked the car thoroughly, he knew someone had stolen his coat and gloves. Do you want me to see if I can find a policeman?Ž I asked. After a moment of contemplation, he said, No.Ž Dont you want to get the guy who made off with your stuff?Ž He looked at me, and I will never forget his words. Son, whoever took that coat and gloves really needs them. It must be 20 degrees out here tonight. That coat might keep some poor guy from freezing. I can always buy another coat.Ž We drove home in silence. I never heard him mention that incident again. He knew it was the right thing to do, and he was at peace with it. I doubt if someone like Herman Cain could comprehend the actions of my mother and father. They believed that not everyone got a fair shake in life, and sometimes you just needed to give them a helping hand. I heard Sen. Orrin Hatch say recently that poor should do their share and that the rich and powerful shouldnt be expected to carry the load. If my mother or father had lived to hear such nonsense, they would have been appalled. But that seems to be the road we are now traveling. The least among us are, for some reason, demonized. That is not right, and it is not fair. But I do not see things changing anytime soon. And that should be a cause for great sadness. At least thats the way I see it, and the way my parents saw it. Q COMMENTARYLet us give a helping hand, and bring compassion back

Sitting at the lounge at the airport, there is CNN Headline News overhead, invariably blaring. In the back of New York City cabs, there is a little screen playing stale TV news clips. In wait-ing rooms, in elevators, in the back of peoples cars and in practically every room in the American home, there it is „ insistent, noisy, the background track to our lives. Television is the most ubiquitous and insidious force in everyday American life. If it were a drug, itd be illegal, and federal agents would be raiding the stu-dios of the networks. Ben Berger of Swarthmore College notes that in 1950 less than 10 percent of U.S. households owned a television. Today, in the average American house-hold, TVs outnumber people. Its now considered a deprivation to be limited to watching The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsŽ only in the family den. As of 2009, we were watching more TV than ever „ on average, more than five hours a day. (Which makes you wonder: How does that leave any time to play video games?) TV can be entertaining and even informative. At times of national tragedy „ the JFK assassination, Sept. 11 „ it draws us together in a web of immediate shared images. As a general matter, though, TV is the Love Canal of our culture. Its a conduit for all that is low and toxic. If there were ever a concerted public campaign against TV, its architects could legitimately claim to wage it „ in that inevitable rationale for all do-goodism „ for the children.Ž The University of Michigan Health System reports that kids ages 2-5 spend on average 32 hours a week in front of a TV. Among 8to 18-year-olds, 71 percent have a TV in their bedroom (and they spend on aver-age 1.5 hours a day more watching TV than kids without a TV in the bedroom). Watching TV is worse than a mindless activity, since mere mindlessness neednt be harmful. Excessive TV view-ing can contribute to poor grades, sleep problems, behavior problems, obesity, and risky behavior,Ž according to the University of Michigan. Berger cites a 2010 study from Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine that found that among toddlers every additional hour of television exposureŽ eventually means decreases in class-room engagement ... math achievement ... time spent doing weekend physical activity ... and activities involving physi-cal effort,Ž and increases in victimiza-tion by classmates ... consumption scores for soft drinks and snacks ... and body mass index.Ž The American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that kids 2 and younger avoid TV „ and everything else on a screen „ altogether. For the rest of us, that is all but impossible. It speaks to the power of TV that even when whats on doesnt truly inter-est you, its hard to take your eyes off it. It literally demands our attention. The only defense is fewer TVs and more of them turned off. Thats surely too much to hope for in a cultur e long ago utterly conquered by the TV screen. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONThe ubiquitous scourge t B A t h H v rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O amy GOODMAN Special to Florida Weekly O To whom are police beholden in protests?The Occupy Wall Street protest grows daily, spreading to cities across the Unit-ed States. We are the 99 percent,Ž the protesters say, that will no longer tol-erate the greed and corruption of the 1 percent.Ž The response by the New York City Police Department has been brutal. Last Saturday, the police swept up more than 700 protesters in one of the largest mass arrests in U.S. history. The week before, innocent protesters were pep-per-sprayed in the face without warning or reason. That is why, after receiving a landmark settlement this week from the police departments of Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as the U.S. Secret Ser-vice, my colleagues and I went to Liberty Square, the heart of the Wall Street occu-pation, to announce the legal victory. On Labor Day 2008, the Democracy Now!Ž news team and I were covering the first day of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. Thousands pro-tested outside. I was on the convention floor, interviewing delegates from what that week was the hottest state, Alaska. Blocks away, my colleagues Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar were cov-ering a police assault on the dispersing crowd of marchers. The riot police had hemmed the protesters into a parking lot, along with cre-dentialed journalists. The police charged at Nicole, shouting On your face!Ž She shouted back Press, press!Ž holding up her press credentials in one hand and filming with the other, video-recording her own violent arrest. She screamed as they brought her down on her face, a knee or boot in her back, dragging on her leg and bloodying her face. The first thing they then did was pull the bat-tery from her camera, if there was any question about what they did not want documented. As Sharif tried to calm the riot(ing) police, they pushed him against a brick wall, kicked him in the chest twice, threw him down and handcuffed him. I got a call on my cell phone and raced from the Convention Center to the scene of the arrests. The riot police had encircled the area. I ran up to the police, my credentials hanging around my neck. I asked for the commanding officer to get my journalist colleagues released. It wasnt seconds before they tore me through the police line, twisted my arms behind my back and handcuffed me. Finally brought to stand next to Sharif, as fully credentialed journalists, we demanded to be released, whereupon a Secret Service agent came over and ripped the credentials from around our necks. We filed suit. This past week, the St. Paul and Minneapolis police and the Secret Service have settled with us. In addition to paying out $100,000, the St. Paul police department has agreed to implement a training program aimed at educating officers regarding the First Amendment rights of the press and public with respect to police operations „ including police handling of media coverage of mass demonstrations „ and to pursue implementation of the training program in Minneapolis and statewide. As we move into the next conventions and cover protests like Occupy Wall Street, this largest settlement to come out of the 2008 RNC arrests should be a warning to police departments around the country to stop arresting and intimi-dating journalists, or engaging in any unlawful arrests. We shouldnt have to get a record while trying to put things on the record. But do police actually pay the price? Before the 2008 Republican and Demo-cratic national conventions, each party bought insurance policies to indemnify the convention cities from any damages resulting from lawsuits. Bruce Nestor, president of the Minnesota chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, told me: St. Paul actually negoti-ated a special insurance provision with the Republican host committee so that the first $10 million in liability for law-suits arising from the convention will be covered by the host committee. ... It basically means we [the city] can com-mit wrongdoing, and we wont have to pay for it.Ž Jump forward to today. The bailedout Wall Street megabank JPMorgan Chase gave a tax-deductible $4.6 million donation to the New York City Police Foundation, which has protesters ask-ing: Who is the NYPD paid to protect, the public or the corporations? The 99 percent or the 1 percent? Marina Sitrin, part of Occupy Wall Streets legal working group, told me that the protest was going to be based at Chase Plaza, but the NYPD pre-emp-tively closed it. The protesters moved to Zuccotti Park, which they renamed Liberty Square. According to an undated press release on JPMorgan Chases website, in response to the $4.6 million donation: New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing pro-found gratitude for the companys dona-tion.Ž Given the size of the donation, and the police harassment and violence against the protesters, we must question how Kelly shows his gratitude. Q „ Amy Goodman hosts Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 900 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.JPMorgan Chase gave a tax-deductible $4.6 million donation to the New York City Police Foundation.

PAGE 8 FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2011 The alerts coming into my e-mail inbox these days are focused on how the non-profit sector may be adversely affected by proposed changes in the tax benefit given to charitable deductions. There is much concern that, even as nonprofits struggle to keep an even keel in a vast sea of economic uncertainty, any proposals to cap charitable deductions will have the effect of putting a hole in the bottom of their boats, discouraging yet further contributions already dimin-ished by the current recession. Advocates point out that for more than a century the charitable deduction has been an important tool utilized by American taxpayers to forge a compact between individuals, government and the philanthropic institutions; and, to great effect, enlightening and leavening society through the benefit of purposeful generosity. The budget hawks who are looking for ways to curb the U.S. deficit say we cant afford to continue this grand old tradition. We should cap or elimi-nate the charitable deduction as just one more snowball cascading out of control in an avalanche of domestic spending that needs to come to a halt. Eyes raised and hearts pounding at the specter of inundation before them, those at the bot-tom of the ski slopes counter such cuts would be a seismic blow to nonprofits already weakened by the loss of public and private funding. More importantly, once budgets are flattened and the val-ley grows quiet again, to the extent any social safety net remains to protect soci-etys most vulnerable, the nonprofit sec-tor may be, metaphorically speaking, the last guy left standing with his skis on. The national Council on Foundations reports that in 2009, 46.4 million taxpay-ers claimed itemized deductions, with deductions for charitable contributions totaling about a cool $158 billion. When one gives to charities, unlike other item-ized deductions, there is no direct bene-fit to those who file. The real beneficia-ries are the nonprofits and the commu-nities whose social and economic needs are served by the mission of the chari-ties receiving the donations. According to the council, had the proposed change in the rate for the charitable deduction gone into effect in 2009, total charitable gifts would have dropped somewhere between $4 billion and $9 billion. Thats a significant reduction. It is no wonder that charities think it worth frantically bailing the boat. Thousands of organizations who need this capital arent otherwise likely to stay afloat. Thats not the only issue: if donations fall significantly as a result of cap-ping the charitable deduction, we can also expect job losses. Few may realize that nonprofits represent a workforce nationwide of more than 12 million strong, a stunning 1percent of the labor force overall and 8 percent of Americas wages. Anybody who throws another log on the fire of job loss should be thinking twice about the conflagration the country already has on its hands. Surely the value added of capacity to provide a social safety net in combi-nation with keeping a small army of people modestly employed, is worth a reflective pause. There is also the mat-ter of the importance of the nonprofit sector to the economy. The statewide Florida Philanthropic Network (FPN) gave a recent presenta-tion that underscored the importance of the sector to the state. According to FPN, there are 46,000 nonprofits. The non-profit sector is the states fourth largest workforce. And it has economic muscle, too „ $48.1 billion in revenues generated, $76.2 billion in total assets, and $14.6 billion in wages and compen-sation, generating $300 million in sales tax revenue for Florida governments. We already know the state is pulling the plug on public funding, and shut-ting off, without remorse, the spigot of dollars supporting social services programs, affordable housing, environ-mental protection, high speed rail, road maintenance and construction, and on and on. If there is a silver lining in this beyond the rationale of reduced spending, it is that innovative strategies are emerging from nonprofits to solve prob-lems while bureaucracies are descend-ing into budget apoplexy. The conclusion? Many say that this is a lousy time to be discouraging charitable giving by rolling back and reducing the incentive to make donations a win-win for the donor and communities, too. People dont give because they get a tax break; they give because they care. But no one can fault donors for taking care of family first. In this age of economic uncertainty, thats why its important to have a little sweetener to close the deal. Q „ 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. It has 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 past week, the world has been mourning the loss of Steve Jobs. As the CEO of Apple, Jobs has been called a visionary and creative genius. Its impos-sible to measure the far-reaching magni-tude of his impact. As the public devours the media accolades and testimonials from industry leaders and international diplomats, the link to Jobs now-famous Commencement Address to the Stanford Class of 2005 has been widely quoted and forwarded throughout cyberspace. (For those who have not seen this link, all one has to do is Google: Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech.) Steve Jobs has been described as a man who guarded his privacy. However, as he addressed the audience of this prestigious institution, he was quick to point out that he had dropped out of Reed College his freshman year. He stated that he couldnt justify burning through his working-class parents life savings to pay for his educa-tion. He spoke of his zest for learning and how he lived on the floor of his friends dorm rooms so he could sit in on classes that intrigued him. He and Steve Wozniak started Apple in his parents garage. He considered himself lucky to have found what he loved to do early on. He implored his audience to find out what they loved in life and to pursue it. He further shared that the many challenges he faced propelled him to find his personal vision for success. He spoke of being publicly fired from Apple at age 30. This was an especially bitter pill to swallow because he was the original co-founder of the company and was strongly influential in hiring the corporate execu-tive with whom he later clashed. The board of directors sided with the other man, and Steve was out of a job. He described himself as devastatedŽ and felt he had let down a generation of entrepre-neurs, and considered running away from Silicon Valley. He volunteered that he had been given up for adoption at birth, and later spoke of facing his own mortality when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The sobering realities of his life very likely shaped the tone of his message.So what is the message so many have found powerful? The following are some of the most notable quotes from his speech:Sometimes lifes going to hit you in the head with a brick. Dont lose faith.Ž When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: If you live each day as if it was your last, someday youll most cer-tainly be right. It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.Ž Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.Ž Work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you havent found it yet, keep lookingƒŽ To the best of my knowledge, no one handed Steve Jobs his beginning oppor-tunities. He clearly had a unique blend of brilliance, energy and drive. And, of course, we have no way of truly knowing how he dealt with his darkest moments. But what remains striking is that this man faced challenges that would have stymied countless others, and he was still able to accomplish greatness. Steves message has not revealed any startling new revelations. We have all heard inspirational messages, wheth-er delivered by clergy, Oprah, self-help books or the latest motivational speaker. Depending on our state of mind, we may be receptive, or inclined to dismiss the message as idealized, sentimental hype. His message was consistent: Live each day as if its your last. And if too many days go by where you dont like what you do, make some changes. But, can we realistically do that? Well, the cynics might say: Sure, in todays world, if youre struggling to meet your mortgage payments to provide for your family, the last thing you can focus on is to pursue what you love. Who has the option of not going to work tomorrow? Who would pay the bills?Ž We cant underestimate the way lifes realities might cut off options. We may not have the luxury of quitting our day jobs. The current economy may offer few oppor-tunities to realistically change careers. Of course, we all have to endure grunt work, and some have had more privileges than the next. But, is there a way to add some brightness to bleak situations? Is there a way to look for special moments each and every day? Isnt there room to dream?Id like to think that there are steps we can each take to effect real changes. As Jobs chillingly notes, those who are self-reflective and face their own mortality are provided opportunities to look squarely at their lives. Even if its not practical to immediately make significant changes, there may be ways to develop encourag-ing game plans for the future. Those of us who must stay in discouraging jobs in order to pay our bills can certainly map out strategies that may pay dividends going forward. And what about trying to improve other aspects of our lives? We may be able to find endeavors that will give us tremendous self-satis-faction. Each of us has to look within to clarify what these endeavors might be. It could be volunteer work, developing a skill or talent, travel or classes. It could be taking risks to enhance personal relation-ships or reaching out to develop totally new friendships.Sometimes setbacks can be the catalysts to reach for something different, something better. And consequently, looking within, to determine our unique capabilities and possibilities could be a challenge well worth taking. As Steve Jobs said: Dont let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intu-ition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.Ž Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

The new full-floor home of The Anderson Family Orthopedic & Spine Center within the medical centers planned Florence A. De George Pavil-ion will provide patients with seamless care, added comfort and a full range of related services „ from preoperative classes and the latest minimally-inva-sive surgical procedures, to orthopedic rehabilitation, the hospital said in a pre-pared statement. Jupiter Medical Center already has the highest number of orthopedic sur-geons performing Total Joint Replace-ment procedures in North Palm Beach and Martin counties, according to Many on the distinguished team are pioneers in their fields, develop-ing minimally invasive techniques and innovative devices, according to the statement. As our communitys demand for access to advanced orthopedic and spine care continues to grow, the Anderson Family Charitable Funds generous gift will enable Jupiter Medical Center to achieve our vision as the regions pre-mier provider of orthopedic services,Ž said John Couris, the medical centers president and CEO. Patients will gain single-source access to the care, knowl-edge and support they need to recover faster and regain quality of life.Ž This gift is the most recent milestone in the $50 million capital campaign well underway to create transformational change, ensuring Jupiter Medical Center will be ready to meet the communitys diverse needs,Ž he added. Joint and spine patients will find a full array of services within the new Ortho-pedic & Spine Center. Focused on empowering patients to take an active role in their own wellbe-ing, the center will feature spaces for preoperative classes, 30 private patient rooms with direct access to operat-ing suites, a private dining area for Orthopedic & Spine Center patients and their families, plus a dedicated inpatient rehabilitation unit.

Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Scripps Research Institute has been awarded a $2.2 million grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to determine how the hepatitis C virus (HCV) induces liver cancer. The research could lead to potentially new therapeutic targets for treating those chronically infected with the virus. Timothy Tellinghuisen, an assistant professor on the Florida campus of Scripps Research, is the principal investigator for the project, Scripps announced in a prepared statement. Hepatitis C virus infection is a major public health problem worldwide. Esti-mates place the number of HCV-infect-ed individuals at approximately 170 mil-lion to 200 million, representing nearly 3 percent of the worlds population, according to the World Health Organization. HCV infection and its assorted patholo-gies are responsible for an estimated 250,000 deaths a year worldwide. A majority of patients remain chronically infect-ed, which can lead to pro-gressive liver damage, cir-rhosis, and often the devel-opment of hepatocellular carcinoma „ liver cancer. An estimated 60 percent to 70 percent of all those infected develop chronic infections and most prog-ress to major liver damage. Each year, as many as 5 percent of these chroni-cally infected patients will develop liver cancer. While the mechanisms by which HCV induces liver cancer are largely unknown, Mr. Tellinghu-isens ongoing research points to host cell signal-ing pathways that are like-ly altered by the virus, cre-ating a replication niche for the virus that avoids the bodys innate immune system. We have identified a host protein „ called CARD14 „ as an impor-tant factor for HCV RNA replication,Ž he said in a prepared statement. We believe that a pathway regulated by this protein gets manipulated by the virus to maintain chronic infec-tions and that this contributes, in part, to liver cancer development. The new grant will help us explore the extensive role of CARD14 in HCV replication and, quite possibly, identify new ways to attack chronic HCV infection.Ž Overall, the new grant will enable Mr. Tellinghuisen and his colleagues to characterize how the virus manipulates this host cell pathway, identify the genes regulated by this pathway and deter-mine their effect on viral infection and persistence, and define the function of this protein in normal liver physiology. The Scripps Research Institute is one of the worlds largest independent, non-profit biomedical research orga-nizations. Based in La Jolla, Calif., the institute also includes a campus in Jupi-ter, where scientists focus on drug dis-covery and technology development in addition to basic biomedical science. Scripps Research currently employs about 3,000 scientists, staff, postdoc-toral fellows and graduate students on its two campuses.

BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickOur culture has become very petfriendly, but as much as I love this shift in attitude, I am also aware that some people dont approve of the change, espe-cially when other people start planning to bring dogs home for the holidays. Now Im a veterinarian, not a family counselor. But I do have some sugges-tions for minimizing the friction between those who always want their dogs with them and those who believe pets should never be imposed on people who dont like them. When bringing together people and pets, everyone should be honest about potential problems, as well as likes and dislikes. And you need to be honest with yourself about your dog. Is your pet well-socialized, well-mannered, and well-groomed? If not, your dogs not ready to tag along on a family visit. Your pet should also be up to date on preventive health measures, especially those involv-ing parasites. If your dog is a party-ready animal, ask your host if its OK to bring your dog along. Never just show up at someones house with a pet in tow. My ground rulesŽ suggestion is that the person who has the ground sets the rules, and the decision to bend or break them is hers alone. If you want to take your pet to a family gathering but your son-in-law says absolutely not in his house, respect that. If your host has pets who dont get along with or would be stressed by a canine visitor, respect that, too. If youre dealing with someone who will become ill if exposed to a pet, the discus-sion is over. Leave your pet out of the mix. This extends to people who are afraid of animals or when there will be other guests who might be at high risk of injury around a pet, such as your great-great-aunt who has already broken her hip twice.If youve been invited to bring your dog along, heres what you will need: Q A considerate attitude Taking your dog to someone elses place is a privilege. Ask where your dog is and isnt allowed to be and where youll be tak-ing him to potty. Q Potty bags You will need to pick up after your pet. And ask where those little bags should go after you pick up. Q Leash Your dog might be awesome at home, but in a new environment you never can tell. Good manners dictate you keep your pup under control. Q CrateTaking a crate when you visit someone allows you to give your dog a room of his own wherever you are and provides your host with options to accommodate other guests. Q Food dishes Dont expect to borrow bowls from your hosts kitchen. Take your own and ask where you should clean them after meals. Dont be offended if its a utility sink in the garage. Q Linens Its a good idea to take a sheet to throw over your bed if youre allowed to have your dog in your bedroom when you stay over at someones house. Pack towels as well, since your host may not want you to use the good towels to dry your dog. If youre a considerate guest, chances are even those who dont like dogs wont have complaints „ and you and your dog will be welcome back. Thats the goal, isnt it? Q Before taking a dog to visit family, the health and safety of everyone — pets and people, alike — must be considered. Dogs welcome Taking pets to visit family means permission and planning PET TALES

Theyre fiercely loyal and and intensely com-petitive. They have all the cut-throated-ness of women but the deep bond that comes with shared blood. Theirs is a complicated relationship. If youre an only child „ as I am „ then the sisterly bond often crops up with close friends. Women who are our confidantes, our allies and our bit-ter rivals. My recent roommate, Adele, and I had just this sort of relation-ship. Intensely close, almost familial. We lived in a strange city where both of us were foreigners. We ate breakfast together every morning and shared a pot of tea before bed. We were like two spinster sisters. Until Jordan came. I liked to think he was not my type. He was on the short side, unkempt and focused almost entirely on himself. But he was funny. And smart. And he had a sort of swagger that gave him a dashing charm. Adele knew Jordan from work, and he fell into our lives the evening he locked himself out of his house and had to spend the night at our place. I went to bed alone and woke up the next day to find a man, strangely, in the house. Jordan became a regular visitor after that. Sometimes he took me out for coffee. Sometimes he invited Adele „ only Adele „ to the movies. When he stopped by our house for a beer, he placed himself squarely between us so that we were never sure which way his light shone. It revolved like the beam from a lighthouse, illu-minating one woman while the other sat in the dark. Our lives went on like that, bal-anced between Jordans affec-tion, until my contract ended and I moved to another city. Adele and I shared a tearful goodbye, unsure when we might see each other again. What a surprise, then, when we found ourselves in the same city just a few months later. We were ecstatic to spend an afternoon together, hugging and talking and laughing like old friends. I didnt ask about Jordan. Not directly. But I circled the conversation around him.How is everyone?Ž I said. Any news?ŽAlways the same,Ž Adele answered. She caught me up on the latest gossip: who was dating, who had broken up, who had moved away. I poured a second glass of wine and nodded, wondering if Jordan would come up. He did, later in the day, as Adele and I walked armin-arm around the city. Jordan and I slept together,Ž she said. Like that, no preamble. She let it drop into the conversation like a stone into the sea. Three times,Ž she said. At work.Ž And afterward?Ž I asked. Did you guys date?Ž She rolled her shoulders, nonchalant. He wanted to come over to my place, but I didnt want him in the house. I didnt want to be with him like that.Ž Was she gloating? I couldnt tell. She seemed both victorious and apologetic. And me? I balanced between happiness „ I root for Adele in all things „ and searing jealousy. Much like I would be if she were my sister, if we shared blood instead of an apartment.

NoHow do you bring emotion to a story about robot boxing? Cheesy father-son drama, for starters. Make the story a shameless RockyŽ rip-o ff, for another. No doubt director Shawn Levy (Night at the MuseumŽ) had the best intentions when trying to bring heart to Real Steel,Ž but the fact remains its hard to root for a robot without feelings, and as a result the movie hits with a loud, metallic thud. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is a loser. Hes a washed-up former boxer who now operates in the world of robot boxing, in which he remote con-trols robots as they beat the steel out of each other. Hes not good at this, either, and owes a great deal of money to a great deal of people. Then his ex-girlfriend dies and he has to care for his son Max (Dakota Goyo), a little snot who certainly has his fathers stubbornness. After a series of poor decisions, they find Atom in a scrap yard. A sparring robot, Atom is designed to take hits as practice for real fighting robots, but not to dish them out. So Charlie immediately disregards Atoms poten-tial. But as is often the case with down-and-out losers in sappy sto-ries such as this, Atom surprises and rises up the ranks, thanks in part to a shadowŽ function that allows Charlie to perform the boxing moves. Will this be Charlies chance to make it to the top? Will Atom defeat the unbeatable Zeus? Will Charlie bond with his son? Its a sad reality that we never really give a damn. To its credit, the near-future setting looks stylish, even if the clothes 10 years from now happen to match the fashion sense of today. Mr. Jackman does what he can with John Gatins limited script, but theres only so much hunky charm he can bring to redeem a lost cause. Evangeline Lilly is fine but underused as Charlies old flame, and young Mr. Goyo, who played the Young Thor in ThorŽ last summer, cant help but be annoying because Max is annoying. Poor Mr. Goyo never had a chance. To make the boxing authentic, the filmmakers brought in former world champion Sugar Ray Leonard and used motion capture animation, in which actors/boxers donned skintight suits and had their movements recorded into a computer. Those movements then became the animated robots, and although you certainly feel the impact as they strike one another, it gets redundant after a short while. Of course, we also know exactly whats going to happen because the story is lifted straight from Rocky.Ž In fact, the movie plays like a bad dream that combines RockyŽ and the old Rock Em Sock Em Robots game. If you dont know what that is, track it down or find the old commercials on YouTube „ I guaranteed thatll be more entertaining than this tired, predictable movie.

But he also shoots above ground, too. The wildlife photography is everything from penguins in Antarctica to lions in Africa to tree frogs from Costa Rica to wild horses at Assateague,Ž he says. And thats a reflection, not just of the photographer, but the man. I absolutely love the outdoors, and I was born and raised here in North Palm,Ž he says. In addition to his photography business, Mr. Bacon also runs his Adventure Mikes Palm Beach Summer Day Camp, in which he takes children out on the water to explore the shoreline. I started doing that and the kids came out and just had a fabulous time. Its been a rewarding experience,Ž he says. It helps remind him of the importance of preserving the environment. And it inspires his photography.I print Ilfochromes and Cibachromes,Ž he says. Ninety percent of what I shoot is film.Ž Mr. Bacon says the colors he gets from the slides he shoots are more deeply saturated than what he might get from a digital photo-graph. I print it on the highest quality photographic paper,Ž he says. That offers fabulous, long-lasting saturation.Ž Expect to see a few of his favorite prints at Art at the Gardens „ a Bengal tiger running in the surf and a species of jellyfish from the Red Sea. There are kissing manatees with a high cuteness factor,Ž he says.And those manatees take him back to his North Palm Beach roots.It was another world and another time:I was born in 1958 and there was nothing here then.Ž Q

PAGE 28 FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2011 Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. Q SCORPIO (Oct ober 23 to November 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. Q SAGITTARIUS (N ovember 22 to December 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. Q CAPRICORN (Dec ember 22 to January 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. Q AQUARIUS (J anuary 20 to February 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or per-sonal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. Q PISCES (F ebruary 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their bright-est. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do. Q ARIES (Mar ch 21 t o April 19) Mars, your ruling planet, begins a journey that will open up a growing number of possi-bilities. Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your hearts content. Q TAURUS (April 2 0 t o May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And dont forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. Q GEMINI (Ma y 21 t o June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. Q CANCER (J une 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily dis-tracted Moon Child. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situa-tion. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something sponta-neous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree.

In an effort to retain some of that business „ and perhaps to lure new customers „ chains started packaging their better-known dishes and filling the super-markets and wholesale clubs with them.Depending on where you shop, youll find items from Panera Bread, California Pizza Kitchen, T.G.I.Fridays, P.F. Changs, Legal Sea Foods, Macaroni Grill, Boston Market, Wolfgang Puck, Marie Callenders and Moes Southwest Grill, among others.Ive tried some of them and been underwhelmed with the offerings. As you might expect, most of the items dont benefit from being cooked, frozen and reheated. In general, the photos on the packages look far more appetizing than what ends up on your plate. I found the flavors were not in balance, and some were so salty they were inedible. Consumers who read nutritional labels will likely be shocked when they see whats in some of these products. A single serving of P.F. Changs Orange Chicken, for example, delivers a whop-ping 1,030 milligrams of sodium (43 per-cent of the recommended daily intake). And thats for one-quarter of a package „ a 5-ounce serving. Oh, and along with that come 450 calories and 16 grams of fat. Ouch! Based on the selection I sampled, Id wait to order these dishes at the res-taurants that make them „ with the California Pizza Kitchen pizza being the noteworthy exception. Heres a rundown of the products I tasted, found in Publix and B.J.s: Q Boston Market Oven Roasted Chicken: T he p ackage touts its home-style mashed potatoes, but if you read the ingredients (printed in microscopic type), youll learn that what youre really getting is potato flakes. I dont know about you, but I have never served potato flakes in my home, nor is there anything to mash for those who do. The chicken was chewy and lacked the well-seasoned taste of that served in the restaurant. The green beans and carrots were the basic unseasoned variety. This wasnt any better than your standard frozen entre but had more calo-ries (330), fat (8 grams) and sodium (1,300 milligrams) than most. Q T.G.I.Fridays Spinach and Artichoke Cheese Dip: Easil y cooked in the microwave in three minutes, this dish is on the relatively healthy end of the nutritional spectrum. A 2-tablespoon serving con-tains 30 calories, 100 milligrams of salt and 1.5 grams of fat. Not bad as long as you dont eat all eight serv-ings yourself. The mixture was creamy and smooth but didnt have a lot of cheese flavor or roasted garlic, as was advertised on the package. Q T.G.I. Fridays Mexican S t yle Chicken Quesadillas: These come two to a package with little crisping sleeves in which to cook them. One side of the flour tortilla emerged crisp, the other somewhat steamed and soggy. The quesadil-las contained white meat chicken, pepper jack, moz-zarella and cheddar cheese with chiles and peppers, but the overall result was bland. At 260 calories apiece, they contain 11 grams of fat and 580 milligrams of sodium. Q P.F. Changs Orange Chicken: Nutritional inf o aside (see above), this was a disappointing dish. It can be micro-waved or cooked on the stove. The pack-age recommends using the stove „ but of course, a microwave is easier. I took the quick route and the battered chicken came out soggy. Aside from that, the spicy orange sauce was extremely salty and the edamame were hard. Ive enjoyed this dish at the restaurant, and the frozen ver-sion doesnt resemble it at all. Q Legal Sea Foods Lobster Bisque: A u thentic lobster bisque gets its exquisite flavor from, well, lobster. Read the label and the first ingredient is seafood stock (water, clam broth from concentrate and lobster concentrate). Theres pollack and codfish, too. Lobster is listed among the ingredients, but I couldnt detect it. It was a lackluster rendition with a whopping 22 grams of fat per 1-cup serving. Q California Pizza Kitchen Margherita Crisp y Thin Crust: This was the best dish of the bunch. The crust came out crisp, as advertised, as was topped with just enough tomatoes, cheese (mozza-rella, parmesan, asiago and Romano) and a sprinkling of savory basil. The texture and flavors were good. Id choose this one over most of the home-delivered versions Ive tasted.

Abigail Adams exhorted her husband to remember the ladiesŽ when he helped to cre-ate our great county. Two centuries later, the power of women is a mighty force. Nowhere is that more obvious than in Palm Beach County, where hundreds of women are CEOS, directors, elected offi-cials, philanthropists, media professionals and public servants who influence industry, politics and health care „ and more than any-thing, the quality of life here. Florida Weeklys 2011 Power Women exemplify professionalism and dedication. They come from a variety of backgrounds. Their energy, expertise and commitment enve-lope their families, colleagues and communi-ties each day. We invite you to meet 16 women who make a difference every day in our community.QQQ THE HONORABLE CAROLINE SHEPHERD HELPS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN understand the judicial branch by leading a mock trial of the three little pigsŽ suing the big, bad wolfŽ for the damages of blowing down the house. Her robe makes her message real, You can be a judge. You can be a lawyer. You can be anything you want.Ž Then she asks the children, Where does it all start?Ž The youngsters answer back, Law school,Ž or college.Ž But with one click of her Pow-erPoint presentation, she shows a picture of their school and she reaches them, It all starts here, sitting at your fourth-grade desk.Ž Before her appointment to the Palm Beach County Court by Governor Charlie Crist in 2009, Judge Shepherd served as an assistant state attorney in Miami and Palm Beach, as well as a federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C. For her, the bench was the next logical progression following her life as a prosecutor, a time she describes as, my first love with the law.Ž Re-elected in November 2010, her term runs through January 2017. No aspirations of higher office yet, Judge Shepherd says she will keep her job as long as she can, as long as the people will have her, for she sees her job as a service. This explains why she finds accepting her accolades as strange, because as she sees it, Its not about me, its about the people in my courtroom.Ž I try to keep my head where my feet are. I try to stay grounded,Ž said Judge Shepherd. I dont let the robe go to my head, thats probably because of my Midwestern upbringing and my faith.Ž Judge Shepherd knows the power her position wields, she affects peoples lives. Thats why she spends so much time researching case law and writing her rulings. Its also why she participates in youth court. You look at these kids and think alright, this is the turning point for you,Ž she said. If you dont change your path, youre going to end up with a DOC (Department of Corrections) number.Ž And as much as she finds it her responsibility to steer their course, she finds it her responsibility to elevate the image of the court.„ Athena PonushisQQQ KAREN MARCUS WAS GROCERY SHOPPING WITH HER GRANDSON, WHEN 7-YEAR-OLD Dylan went up to a gentleman in the meat department and said, Excuse me, this is County Commissioner Marcus, shes a county commissioner.Ž Dylan, dont tell people that,Ž interjected Commissioner Marcus, Im just Memaw.Ž And thats how the commissioner sees herself, doing what everyone else does „ shopping at Publix, mowing her own lawn, taking care of her grandchildren when shes not working. First elected to the county commission in 1984, Mrs. Marcus measures success by a drive around town. Ocean Cay, Coral Cove Park, Diamond Head/Radnor all speak to her support of beach acquisition. It was important to preserve what I remembered, which was plenty of public access to the beach,Ž said the Florida native, moving from Key West to Palm Beach at age 5. Down to the Juno pier, Mrs. Marcus sees other grandparents and fisher-men as a testament to the 10 years it took to replace it. West to the Scripps Research Institute and Roger Dean Stadium, she sees international science perfectly nestled next to the all-American game. Those four votes to put up Scripps in Abacoa, what a challenge, one of my biggest, but it fit,Ž Commissioner Marcus said. We didnt have to worry with residential building. We had the university component in place. It was the perfect spot, right next to the baseball park.Ž Mrs. Marcus likes to face every decision thinking 20 years down the line, hence her advocacy to purchase more than 29,000 acres of environmentally sensitive land, protecting it from development. She has received the Nature Conservancys distinguished Public Service Award and Grassroots Leadership Award, but none beat, Memaw.Ž I remember what it was like as a kid,Ž said the 59-year-old grandmother of five, who will not serve on the commission again due to term limits. And as we grew as a community, I have tried to make sure we were growing the right way, so were still the type of community I remember growing up in.Ž„ Athena PonushisQQQ ASK MOST PEOPLE, AND THEYLL TELL YOU THEY ARE LOOKING TO ESCAPE THEIR JOBS. Ask Lea of WZZR-FM 94.3s Josh Cohen & the Hometeam,Ž and shell tell you her job is her escape. Its the best job ever. Its absolutely the best job ever,Ž she says. Theres not a day that I dont want to work. Its an escape from my family and my children. I dont have to wait on anybody and clean up afterward.Ž And from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. each Monday-Friday, she gets to do just that, all the while seemingly having a blast with her radio co-stars, Mr. Cohen and Luke. Were all very much our own characters and everything. Josh never ceases to amaze me. Luke has an incredible intelligence about him,Ž she says. I think we all complement each other very well on the air.Ž Lea „ no last name necessary „ says South Florida also complements her.She was raised in the Boynton Beach-Delray Beach area, and lived in California, Hawaii and Japan. My mom had a bar and I would tend bar and made a killing and would travel the world with my boyfriend on surf trips,Ž she says. She came back to South Florida in 1998, and now finds time for snowboarding. I snowboard every year,Ž she says. I go out to Utah every year for a 10-day trip. Thats one of my most favorite things to do is go snowboarding. I hope to have a house in Utah someday.Ž Lea landed in radio by accident.She was directing promotional events for Hawaiian Tropic when she decided she was interested in pursuing a broadcasting career. I thought I should do news. I went to broadcasting school and got an internship at Channel 5. I loved it, and worked with Cari Champion. She was my mentor,Ž Lea says. When I was finished with my internship, they werent hiring, but a week later, I got a call from my friend at Clear Channel.Ž Initially she was to appear on the air on Fridays.Five weeks later, they did a complete change,Ž she says, and the rest is history. When she is not on the air, Lea is busy with her children, Kai, 4, and Makoa, 12. Their names are drawn from their moms six years in Hawaii.Makoa means strong, aggressive, bold. Kai means the ocean,Ž she says.Kai is excited that his mom is on the air, and Makoas friends think his moms career is cool. That connectivity is good.Over the years in radio, I think things have changed a lot,Ž she says. Its not your shock jock. Its you and who you are connecting with „ the people and sharing your life with them and allowing them to kind of be your friend over the airwave.Ž„ Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2011 2011 POWER WOMEN A33 e w n t u C C And w hat e h er o w shes n Firs t M arc u CC POWER WOMEN w h P P P P P O O O O O W W W W W E E E E E E R R R R R P P P P P O O O O W W W W W E E E E E E R R R R R R W W W W W W O O O O O O O O O M M M M M M M M E E E E E E N N N N N W W W W W W W O O O O O O O O O O M M M M M M M E E E E E E E E N N N N N N N 2011 PALM BEACH COUNTY Karen Marcus Lea of Real Radio Caroline Shepherd

Here, the president and chief executive officer of the Loxahatchee River His-torical Society (stewards of the Jupiter Inlet Light-house), recounts her morning: Q Meet with landscapers, design the expanse of native plants, mind the guidance of biologists. Q Meet with the Coast Guard, make sure everyones happy. Q Meet up with a school fieldtrip, give an exclusive tour to a boy with a walker, show him wells and cisterns and explain the collection of rainwater while other students climb. Q Do a little bookkeeping, catch up with the land bureau, check in with an artist on a rendering. Q Meet with the VFW, help plan the wedding of a young man returning from Iraq who lost his legs. Q Find that audit letter, order new software, pay some bills. And its early yet,Ž quips the 57-year-old. When she thinks of being called a power woman,Ž she cant help but smile, remembering the girl she describes as light-hearted, easy-going, quiet. This job has changed me quite a bit,Ž Ms. Stuve says. Ive had to defend things. Ive had to protect things from destruction, ignorance, poli-tics and lack of funding. Ive had to become stronger, get brave. Ive had to really put it on the line a lot more than whats natural for me.Ž In November, Ms. Stuve will celebrate 10 years with the Loxahatchee River Historical Society. She looks back and thinks of the storms, her and her staff working out of a construction trailer in the parking lot. She sees the site today (designated the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area by Congress in 2008), sees the museum, sees the 2010 Muse Award from the Palm Beach County Cultural Council for cultural excellence, and sees how far her organization has come, how fast. I have a very deep sense this is sacred land,Ž says Ms. Stuve, who loves more than anything when visitors tell her, I feel changed having been here.Ž Guardian Stuve intends to protect it, and make people aware of it, so future generations will feel this same sense.„ Athena PonushisQQQ LORI SCHACTER PICKS UP THE PHONE. AND SHE SAYS THATS why shes successful. Im accessible.Ž The Illustrated Properties real estate professional has closed more than $330 million in transactions over the past 12 years, more than $30 million this year alone. Ban-nered across her website in blue, she says, Your quest for the right home is my passion.Ž Ms. Schacter has learned you have to spend money to make money. She advertises on 30 Google sites, attracting national and international attention. Late one Sunday evening, she received a call from the representative of a foreign dignitary. Someone promi-nent was looking to buy in Admirals Cove. She found the urgency of the call a little strange, but always interested in making the sale,Ž she quieted Hollywood delusions of high-stakes kidnapping, met the limo, showed the house, took the check. Two weeks later, the prime minister of Latvia had moved in. I have always wanted to please. It makes me happy. Its how I brought up my children,Ž Ms. Schacter said. It makes me feel good to be successful, because it makes me feel like Ive given as much as Ive gained.Ž Ms. Schacter has sold so many homes, shes working on obtaining more listings. She has signed many a contract on the hood of her car. Im very good at reading people,Ž says the 56-year-old, who earned her masters degree in psy-chology through Hofstra University in New York. Beyond understanding behavior, Ms. Schacter has watched Palm Beach residential communities grow from the dirt. Living here 18 years, raising three children, she knows the particulars of each community and she knows the school system. She knows her homes and she knows her clients. Its like a marriage, agent and client, you have to really be in love with each other or you dont make the sale, you dont buy the house,Ž says the woman who seems to be becoming quite the matchmaking Realtor. Ms. Schacter has had three of her clients marry other clients. Shes introduced them, and shes three-for-three at happily ever after.Ž Hey,Ž her New-York-side comes out, this is full service.Ž„ Athena Ponushis Jamie Stuve Lori Schacter KNOW YOUR OPTIONS FOR RECONSTRUCTION COSMETIC & RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY ‡ DYSPORT, BOTOX, JUVEDERM, RESTYLANE, PERLANE ‡ MEDICAL FACIALS, CHEMICAL PEELS, MICRODERMABRASION ‡ HYDRAFACIAL’ ‡ ULTHERA THE NO DOWNTIME LIFTŽ ‡ PERMANENT MAKEUP, EYELASH EXTENSIONS ‡ LASER REJUVENATION ‡ MASSAGE THERAPY ‡ MEDICAL GRADE SKINCARE OUR SERVICES: Dr. Luis Vias has pioneered a single stage nipple-sparing breast reconstruction that is revolutionizing prophylactic and diagnosed breast cancer surgical care.

His wife, mother of two, thanked the medical center for being able to hold her children again. These outcomes, these are the moments that propel Chief Operating Officer Stewart to do all she can do, because the moments she treasures the most, are the moments when patients are able to say, Thank you.Ž I am thrilled to be a piece of the outcome,Ž Mrs. Stewart said. I may not be the center of the story, but Im on the periphery. I know I had an influence on those directly involved in offering the care ƒ And at the end of the day, its all about delivering great patient care ƒ Its all about the patient.Ž These are the stories Mrs. Stewart, 55, pulls on when she tries to find ways to better the centers components of care, when she looks to introduce a cutting-edge device, when she works to involve the center in a clinical trial. She thinks of the patients who came in with spinal cord injuries and left being able to walk. She thinks of open-heart patients who leave being able to breathe. A clinician by background, its important for me to feel Im making a contribution to society,Ž said Mrs. Stewart, who makes her rounds daily, asking doctors and nurses and patients, What can I do to make the care better?Ž Mrs. Stewart was attracted to the medical field because she wanted to make a differ-ence in peoples lives. She has been with Tenet Healthcare since 1984, a commitment she says may have been common in her parents day, but a rare feat in her own. She does not care for titles or individual praise, but she would like people to know, I do give my all at work,Ž because as shes seen at the bedside, People are counting on me.Ž„ Athena PonushisQQQ ASK PAMELA RAUCH TO SUM UP HER JOB AS VICE PRESIDENT of external affairs at FPL and she does not hesitate when answering. In one word, its fantastic,Ž she says. I really enjoy what I do because I really believe in what our company is doing.Ž That means being out there.Its really a lot of fun to actually be at the table with some of the smartest businessmen and women who work at this company. Its a real honor,Ž she says. Not only am I involved with what happens on our campus, but my job is to be external. I love that I get to share our company with the public,Ž she says. And that means getting the word out.My team in external affairs, made up about of 30 people, is really charged with talking with our customers,Ž Ms. Rauch says. Engaging with our customers and talking to them.

Now provost of Palm Beach State Colleges Eissey Campus in Palm Beach Gardens, she says she con-stantly is looking for ways to develop relationships to help make others successful. I like to spend time planning and understanding what peoples needs are, their particular motivation and interest and then try to find out what the com-munity I am engaged with wantsŽ said Dr. Wihbey, who credits her success with a combination of pas-sion and action. She has written four publications on leadership and has given motivational and informational speeches. Her organized office is filled with literature on personal success, including multiple magazines on leadership and self-devel-opment. Dr. Wihbey said she believes Palm Beach State College has an obligation to its community to share the information and engage the community in the knowledge of what is happening. I spend a lot of time thinking and reading about what is going on that will make a difference in peoples lives,Ž she said. Dr. Wihbey, now 50, joined Palm Beach State College as provost in 2009. Before that she served in four community colleges in her home state of Con-necticut.

Each day, she drives from Royal Palm Beach to Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, where she is director of development. The mother of three „ daughter Loren, 7, and 6-year-old twins Mathew and Alexa „ she stays busy outside the office, too. I am a very passionate person,Ž she said.Her passion is to reach out to her community and make difference in peoples lives. I love to see the faces of children and adults alike when they come to our center for the first time and truly understand what we do when we treat see turtlesŽ she said. She finds the best part of her job is to be able to work with people, educating them about nature and the centers mission. A graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University, she holds a bachelor of science in busi-ness administration and an MBA. She had a 15-year career at Deutsche Private Wealth Management in Palm Beach and also worked for Palm Beach Atlantic University. She always has been active in her community, and for many years volunteered and raised money for several non-profit organizations, including the Marinelife Center. Several factors brought Mrs. Jaffe, 43, to her current job; there are two that played the biggest role. First is the Marinelife Centers mission, which she became very passionate about in a very short period of time. Second, the countless involvement opportunities within the organization for her children. She says that the main component of her professional success is always being passionate about what she does. In addition, she remains actively involved in the community. Currently, she is an Outreach Chair for Executive Women of the Palm Beaches charitable organization, which mentors young women between ages 11 and 18 and also provides scholarships for women in the community to attend college.

She studied special education at Florida State University and earned a BS degree. But her career in education was short.After two years, she decided teaching was not a good fit and moved on. After getting her real estate license, she worked for four companies, then started her own company, SUN Realty of the Palm Beaches. She ran the company for seven years then switched to Keller Williams, where within five years she became com-panys top producers. One reason for her success? Mrs. Smith, 69, said she always keeps up with the new technology and advances in her field. Real estate has changed so much in the last 40 years. If you are not up to date with technol-ogy, you should not be in the businessŽ she says. And now she sees herself as a teacher of a different sort „ educating buyers and sellers can be the most interesting and challenging parts of her job. There is so much misinformation on the Internet,Ž said Mrs. Smith, adding that Internet listings are not always correct that explaining them to people is not always easy. Therefore, she finds communication to be the key to success. Being a breast cancer survivor of 14 years, she is strongly involved in the community, including Christ Fellowship church and a Deaf Ministry, where she interprets for deaf people. She also is on the boards of directors for two non-profit cancer-related organizations, one of which is called Dianes Voice, and is a leader for three cancer support groups. Mrs. Smith said she loves her family, and that when she is not busy, she enjoys a weekend family vacation at her lake house in Sebring, where she can relax and play with her grandchildren.„ Yona Mishanina JeanWihbey Deborah Jaffe Nancy Smith FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A37

She said that her motivation to run for the position was to do good things and chart a positive course for the state of Florida and its people. But what about her life before she was elected?Ms. Gannon founded and operated Anne M. Gannon & Associates, a public affairs firm. She also was one of the three owner-partners of a manufacturing company, Applegarth Designs Inc. Later, she became a member of the state House of Representatives and ran for tax collector. I believed that running for the position of constitutional tax collector offered the best potential for public service that was a good match for my business skills,Ž she said. She enjoys working with people and says the best part of her job is being able to work with public. She also has a strong work ethic and orga-nizational skills that despite the busy schedule help her to create a sufficient work team. I have a senior leadership team that works very well together. I think it is impor-tant for management to operate as team. And we do that well!Ž she said. In 2010, her office won numerous awards from the Public Relations Society of America, and she has received awards from a variety of organizations, including National Association of Social Workers and National Foundation for Women Legislators. Besides that, she is on the Board of Pinegrove Arts District and JFK Hospital and also is a member of a number of womens business organizations. In her spare time, Ms. Gannon runs, exercises, reads, gardens and likes to entertain. „ Yona MishaninaQQQ FOR FANS OF PUBLIC RADIO, THE VOICE OF CAROLINE BREDERWatts is ubiquitous. Tune in to Classical South Florida, and that is her carefully nuanced voice hosting shows and announcing calen-dar items. But she set out for a career in theater, rather than broadcasting. I started with WXEL in 1992. I was a part-timer. That was like a second job for me, and it just happened that I stumbled into it,Ž she says. At the time she handled public relations and marketing for Florida Stage. I have no training, other than theater training,Ž she says. I almost feel bad saying that because maybe I didnt pay my dues.Ž But maybe she has paid those dues in other ways.WXEL radio this year became WPBI Classical South Florida. We went through a lot of changes and regimes and peopleŽ at WXEL, she says. I got a good perspective on what public radio means.Ž And for Ms. Breder-Watts, who now broadcasts from studios in downtown Fort Lauderdale, that means sup-porting the arts. I really feel a big connection to Palm Beach County and I really want to make sure Palm Beach County is taken care of and is well represented,Ž she says. One of her roles at the station is to provide continuity and the personal touch in the community, particularly in the arts community because those are my friends and thats my life.Ž And she stays busy with another venture, Arts Radio Network, a website dedicated to promoting Palm Beach Countys arts community. Ms. Breder-Watts developed the site in 2008 with her husband, John Watts, and marketing whiz Ceci Dadisman. Initially what it was really designed for was to support the shows we were doing. We wanted to be able to podcast those things,Ž she says of Arts Radio Network. After nearly three years, the site „ „ went online in its new form on Oct. 3. Over the past summer, John said we need to take this to the next level,Ž Ms. Breder-Watts says. The site will promote the arts free of charge, she says.We want it to be more of an NPR-style site where you really are getting the stories behind the communities and artists and what their lives are like in South Florida,Ž she says. Its been a decade of huge steps for Ms. Breder-Watts, who moved to the area in 1969. I am one lucky duck, especially as a woman. I turned 50 years old last year, have two children under the age of 10 and got married right before I turned 40,Ž she says. That gives her perspective.Its so funny to me. Im doing things that 30-year-olds do,Ž she says with a laugh. I should be doing these things for my grandchildren, not my children. Im really happy.Ž„ Scott Simmons Anne M.

If you have spent any time in the area, then you have read her columns in area publications or seen her photography and sculpture on display at places ranging from Park Avenue Barbecue & Grille to the Scripps Florida campus. Now executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, for many years, Ms. Deits ran her own business, Camera Graphics, at the time one of the largest photographic firms in Palm Beach County. She says the best part of her job is to create the opportunity for the new talents to blossom. We have a lot of opportunities for artists to expose their work through different exhibitions and be judged by critics and gallery owners,Ž said Ms. Deits. Being a great believer in teamwork, she finds a lot of inspiration from people she works with. Our staff works closely together. We are like a family,Ž said Ms. Deits, who grew up in West Palm Beach. Before joining the ArtCenter in November 2009, she was an editor at The Palm Beach Post and a critic for Palm Beach ArtsPaper. Passionate about art, she never defines her work into a 9-to-5 schedule. And part of that schedule includes draw-ing, painting and sculpting. She has a bachelor of fine arts degree from University of South Florida, Florida Degree of Photographic Excellence and a Master of Photography from Professional Photographers of America. She also studied art in New York City and the history of art in Florence, Italy. In 2007, she was awarded the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for Palm Beach County.

And 25 years later, Kelley Dunn never has looked back.She always had loved to write and knew that University of Florida had a good journalism and broadcasting school. She started to volunteer at a radio station and run the news updates, then became an anchor on a student news station. Little by little I realized that I can do it and enjoy doing it,Ž she said. Part of that enjoyment comes from the diversity of what she covers. News always changes, and that is exciting,Ž she said.What makes her successful?I am just being me, I am not trying to be anybody else,Ž the University of Florida graduate said. Ms. Dunn said she enjoys the company of her coworkers, and loves having the opportunity to improve peoples lives by telling news stories that will help them in some way. I really think that it is a wonderful feeling to know that what you are doing is helping somebody,Ž said Ms. Dunn. And that explains why she is active in her community. While involved with several non-profit organizations, she is especially active with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In the end, it all comes back to her career, in which she is a five-time Emmy Award winner. She also has received The Associated Press and Telly awards.
