GEORGE GIARDINI HOLDS STONE CRAB season akin to mopping floors and washing dishes. Ah, shellfish nostalgia. Hes the boy who grew up in the back of Carmines Gourmet Market. And Carmine was his dad. Just the thought of the sweet, meaty claws sends him back to his 12-year-old self, when he would help carry in the first catch as fast as he could, cause he couldnt taste those claws fast enough. Soon as they came in, we ate em,Ž said Mr. Giardini, now 42. First catch of the season, you cant get any fresher than that.Ž Stone crab season runs from October 15 to May 15. Mr. Giardini has heard from stone crabbers, traps are filling up quick.

The news that a friend has died is never good, of course, but in Roberts case his passing seems particularly trag-ic „ as much for the lost promise of his life as anything else. Robert and I grew up together. I could throw a rock from my house to his. He was a year older, and we went to the same grammar school and high school. He was one of those guys who just seemed to be charmed. He was a pass-able athlete and an incredibly gifted stu-dent. Robert was one of the best writers I have ever encountered, and he was editor of the high school newspaper. I did not know a single person who said they disliked him. His wry humor was always delivered with an impec-cable deadpan style. He was president of the high school student body, and his signature campaign issue was a promise to rid the campus of cold toilet seats. We all howled, but the schools administration was not amused. They thought it unseemly and inappro-priate to be giving speeches about toilet seats. Robert won in a landslide. After high school he went to Tulane University in New Orleans, where he was the most popular guy in his fraternity. I visited him at Tulane on spring break during his freshman year. Some-how, he had landed us a keyŽ to the New Orleans Playboy Club. After an evening with the Bunnies, we made our way down to the waterfront and a won-derfully seedy bar, where we watched the sun rise with a man who insisted he was a soldier of fortuneŽ and also insisted on buying the house drinks. Robert graduated with high honors from Tulane (he was Phi Beta Kappa) and then headed off to Stanford Uni-versity for graduate school. In the meantime, he was offered a prestigious internship at the Washington bureau of The New York Times.While at Stanford, Robert wrote for the newspaper there and collected an impres-sive array of clippings. He got his masters degree in communications and became a protg of one Stanfords most esteemed instructors.But then something happened. Robert changed. Instead of embarking on the meritori-ous career he appeared to be des-tined for, he returned to our hometown. I was long gone by then, but I began to receive disturbing reports. He appeared spaced-outŽ and just plain weird,Ž I was told. Apparently, he roamed a golf course at night, mumbling to himself, and worked part time at the Internal Revenue Service as a file clerk. I saw him a few times during this period, and it was like viewing a stranger. In his mid-20s, Robert was diagnosed with diabetes and he became obsessed with his disease. He would bring his blood-sugar down to levels that sent him into comas. Several times, paramedics had to break into his shabby apartment and revive him. No amount of reasoning would work on Robert in this regard, and finally, a physician told his mother that Robert could not be allowed to administer insulin to himself; it was too dangerous, and a fatal overdose would surely occur.And so, at less than 30 years of age, Robert was forced into a nursing home. The next youngest resident was 71 years old. I would get a card from him every Christmas, and they always began with this line: Greetings from hell!ŽIt became so painful to see his decline that, to my shame, I limited contact. It was a torture to see this young man of such considerable talent and personal-ity wasting away. Robert was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which was successfully treated. By the time he reached his mid-50s, he had spent roughly half his life forcibly housed in a nursing home. Then, without warning, he died in his sleep. There had been no sign that any-thing was wrong, and it was assumed that his heart simply wore out. I found out that Robert had been afflicted with schizophrenia „ a fact that he never chose to share with me. The last time I saw Robert, years ago, he was somewhat lucid. We talked base-ball and books, and he told me that he had not written another word „ other than bizarre notes and such „ after leaving Stanford. Maybe you should start back writing,Ž I said. Robert shook his head. No, its over, finished.Ž As I left, Robert seemed to emerge a little from his fog. Remember that night at the Playboy Club?Ž he asked. I laughed, adding that it was indeed a night to remember. With that bit of nostalgia, I was gone and out of Roberts life forever.I should have gone back to see him but, as I realize now, I simply lacked the cour-age to be the friend I should have been.

Mitt Romney plays a version of the same card, arguing that career politi-cians got us into this mess, and they simply dont know how to get us out.Ž If Cain and Romney think so poorly of politics as a vocation, they could easily save themselves from any further taint. They could drop their arduous schedules, their fundraising pleas, their very public roles that open them up to ridicule and attack, and return to com-fortable lives that would be welcomed by the vast majority of Americans who dont thirst after political distinction. Of course, neither of them will fold up shop until it becomes impossible to go on, or he succeeds. They dont have the courage of what they want us to believe are their anti-politician convictions. Cains status as a non-officeholder is entirely an accident of the poor judg-ment of Republican primary voters in his state of Georgia. He ran for the nomination to the U.S. Senate in 2004. He lost. Had he won, he might well be in his seventh year and second term in the Senate, where politicians go to live out their days blissfully free of any serious responsibilities. Romney avoided becoming a career politician by a similar route. He ran for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts in 1994 and lost, ran for governor of the state in 2002 and served one term before setting his sights on higher office, and ran for the Republican nomination for presi-dent in 2008 and lost. Hes been running for president ever since. All in all, hes made a pretty good political career out of not being a career politician. The business experience of a Cain or a Romney is enriching, no doubt. They are more impressive for it. But what will be more relevant if Romney becomes president, his time as manage-ment consultant or his time as gover-nor of Massachusetts? Romney was a flawed candidate in 2008 and „ by most accounts „ is a better candidate now. That has everything to do with having acquired more political experience by passing through the fire of running for president once before. Amid the slings of outrageous fortune, the politician learns how to inspire and persuade, how to avoid unnecessary minefields and pick his fights, when to accommodate his opponents and when to confront them, how to build a coali-tion and keep it together. A businessman might have similar challenges, but they arent played out in the public arena in the context of a balky, democratic political system that rarely moves on the basis of one mans orders. And the businessmans work doesnt depend on a philosophical commitment to a set of ideas. The best politicians, like the non-businessman Ronald Rea-gan, translate their principles into real-ity in a way that rises to statesmanship. Its not important not to be a politician; its important to be a really good one. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONThe businessman canard c a e m h n rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O Back when Barack Obama was still just a U.S. senator running for presi-dent, he told a group of donors in a New Jersey suburb, Make me do it.Ž He was borrowing from President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who used the same phrase (according to Harry Belafonte, who heard the story directly from Eleanor Roosevelt) when responding to legend-ary union organizer A. Philip Randolphs demand for civil rights for African-Americans. While President Obama has made conces-sion after con-cession to both the corporate-funded tea party and his Wall Street donors, now that he is again in campaign mode, his progressive crit-ics are being warned not to attack him, as that might aid and abet the Republi-can bid for the White House. Enter the 99 percenters. The Occupy Wall Street ranks continue to grow, inspiring more than 1,000 solidarity protests around the country and the globe. After weeks, and one of the larg-est mass arrests in U.S. history, Obama finally commented: I think people are frustrated, and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.Ž But neither he nor his advisers „ or the Republicans „ know what to do with this burgeoning mass movement. Following the controversial Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which allows unlimited corporate dona-tions to support election advertising, the hunger for campaign cash is insatiable. The Obama re-election campaign aims to raise $1 billion. According to the Cen-ter for Responsive Politics, the financial industry was President Obamas second-largest source of 2008 campaign contri-butions, surpassed only by the lawyers/ lobbyists industry sector. The suggestion that a loss for Obama would signal a return to the Bush era has some merit: The Associated Press reported recently that almost all of (Mitt) Romneys 22 special advisers held senior Bush administration positions in diplomacy, defense or intelligence. Two former Republican senators are included as well as Bush-era CIA chief Michael Hayden and former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.Ž But so is the Obama presiden-cy an expansion of the Bush era, unless there is a new Push era.Ž The organic strength of Occupy Wall Street defies the standard dismissals from the corporate medias predictably stale stable of pundits. For them, it is all about the divide between the Repub-licans and the Democrats, a divide the protesters have a hard time seeing. They see both parties captured by Wall Street. Richard Haass, head of the establish-ment Council of Foreign Relations, said of the protesters, Theyre not serious.Ž He asked why they are not talking about entitlements. Perhaps it is because, to the 99 percent, Social Security and Medicare are not the problem, but rather growing inequality, with the 400 richest Ameri-cans having more wealth than half of all Americans combined. And then there is the overwhelming cost and toll of war, first and foremost the lives lost, but also the lives destroyed, on all sides. Its why, for example, Jose Vasquez, executive director of Iraq Veterans Against the War, was down at Occupy Wall Street Monday night. He told me: Its no secret that a lot of veterans are facing unemployment, homelessness and a lot of other issues that are deal-ing with the economy. A lot of people get deployed multiple times and are still struggling. ... Ive met a lot of veterans who have come here. I just met a guy who is active duty, took leave just to come to Occupy Wall Street.Ž The historic election of Barack Obama was achieved by millions of people across the political spectrum. For years during the Bush administration, people felt they were hitting their heads against a brick wall. With the election, the wall had become a door, but it was only open a crack. The question was, would it be kicked open or slammed shut? It is not up to one person. Obama had moved from community organizer in chief to commander in chief. When forces used to having the ear of the most powerful person on Earth whisper their demands in the Oval Office, the president must see a force more powerful outside his window, whether he likes it or not, and say, If I do that, they will storm the Bastille.Ž If theres no one out there, we are all in big trouble. 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.

Her research concerns marine ecosystems with special reference to exploration and the development and use of new technologies for access and effective operations in the deep sea and other remote environments. Now explorer-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, that time spent in the sea has taught Dr. Earle just how fragile the ocean is. Everyone thought in the middle of the 20th century that the ocean was so resilient that there wasnt much we could do to harm it,Ž Dr. Earle says. Scientists have since learned otherwise. She says people were cavalier in how they treated oceans, but its similar to the ways they viewed the land. There was an early attitude about the land when Europeans first came to American about the life on the land „ the forests, the birds, the animals,Ž she says, citing how Lewis and Clarks expedition to the west was as much about exploiting the lands resources as it was mapping the region. But abusing the ocean can have even more dire consequences for the planet, she says. Without the ocean, Earth would be inhospitable to us,Ž Dr. Earle says. If we understood the ocean less as water than as a great bowl of life „ every fish, every whale counts.Ž Does that mean we shouldnt be fishing? Sure, we can extract some. There is great resilience,Ž she says. The ocean continues to adjust as we make inroads into that family of life in the sea. The inroads are so great that we have desta-bilized these processes that have held the planet steady, so there is a lot of justifiable concern about atmospheric issues.Ž For decades, researchers have studied the effects of what was belched into the sky through chimneys and exhausts. But little has been done to document changes in the sea, Dr. Earle says. Just look at the efforts put into measuring the skies. But what theyre not tracking is the source of hurricanes, which originate in the sea itself,Ž she says. Budgets that are allocated to ocean studies and ocean care are a frac-tion to that which is allocated to the ocean of air above and space beyond.Ž Why is that?I asked Clare Boothe Luce „ she was just an amazing woman, very savvy on so many fronts. I had a chance to have lunch with her at her home in Hawaii, and asked why is it that people are so entranced with space,Ž she says. She didnt have to think very long. Heaven is up there, she was pointing to the clouds, and we know whats down there. People fear it.Ž So its a question of ignorance.Those deeply held concepts of looking to the ocean as an unknowable place „ it was dangerous. The thought that you cant breathe in water „ you cant breathe in space but people dont get that.Ž But we will not be able to breathe on Earth unless we mind the oceans, she says. Theres a delicate balance that keeps algae alive. Algae provides much of our oxygen. And the krill of Antarctica, LUNCHEONFrom page 1

Were now feeding an insatiable unsus-tainable demand for fish protein.Ž Much of the fish is ground up for animal feed and pellets. It doesnt matter what kind of fish gets ground up,Ž she says. Its draining the ocean of the life thats there.Ž And fish farming also is detrimental to the environment. Its fed by our taste for shrimp. If we just said no, they wouldnt be growing it. Its taking a bite out of coastal eco-systems, for sure,Ž Dr. Earle says. Its really causing some big problems. Most of these shrimp ponds are at the cost of the mangrove forests, whether its in Ecuador or Thailand or wherever it is. They carve out these shallow ponds, usually lined with these great sheets of plastic. They rely on the change of tides to bring water in, or, in some cases, rely on that body of water,Ž she says. And heres where fish farming can get nasty, she says. The problem is when they overcrowd or overfeed or pour on anti-biotics to deal with the diseases that inevitably arise, she says. In five, eight years, these ponds become so contami-nated, they abandon them and move on.Ž Theres a reason why that happens.The shrimp are not eating plants. Theyre eating pellets or theyre eating wild fish. Shrimp are omnivores. They can get along with plant material, but growth is faster for them to use pellets made from fishmeal,Ž she says. Culti-vated fish. Its not a reasonable invest-ment. It takes a whole lot more fish going in than coming out. Its feeding a luxury taste. We can all do without popcorn shrimp and shrimp cocktail.Ž Most westerners are pretty far removed from their food sources, Dr. Earle says. Its true of a lot of things we consume. We dont know the real cost of a cow or the other things we consume, but theres no question of the high cost of fish that we consume,Ž she says. That price can be high.Wild things can take, oh, decades to produce,Ž Dr. Earle says. There is a good analogy between the oceans and trees. Tuna, if left alone, can live for 30 years. It takes bluefins 15 years to reproduce.Ž It all comes back to understanding the ocean and its importance to our own survival. Or as Dr. Earle says: Going to the moon or Mars is a really big deal, yet weve invested heavily into going high in the sky, but we have neglected the ocean and its costing us dearly.Ž Q >> The 2011 Go Blue Awards Luncheon begins at 11 a.m. Oct. 21 at PGA National Resort and Spa, Palm Beach Gardens.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2011 in his sleep. Particularly thanks to one woman, a customer who comes in every Christmas and orders 500 claws, cracked cocktail style. Year after year, she keeps coming back. Mr. Giardini understands the compulsion to buy stone crabs „ theyre cooked, cracked, chilled, easy. Add some Carmines homemade mustard sauce and eat. When I sit down to eat em, I cant stop,Ž he said. Its one of those things where you cant get enough. You keep going and going. Theyre so good, so sweet, so tasteful.Ž But before theyre so simple, somebody has to cook them and grade them, like Justin Grimm of Grimms Stone Crab in Ever-glades City. Hes the boy who grew up not being able to sleep the night before season start-ed. The excitement „ the boats, the stone crabbers, the trucks „ the buzz still seems to wake him three hours before he needs to be up on opening day. Grimms buys stone crabs from six boats, six days a week, roughly six months a year. Say each boat brings in 300 pounds a day, then Grimms moves over 270,000 pounds of stone crabs a season. And thats low-balling it,Ž said Mr. Grimm. Hes the third-generation-Grimm running the family business, right alongside his father and grandmother. Their website boasts, If you call us,Ž theres a 99 percent chance the person answering the phone has the last name Grimm. Mr. Grimms mother has pictures of him and his brothers in their car seats next to the grading table, where family sat sorting stone crabs into grades of medium, large, jumbo and colossal. Stone crabs are a way of life to me,Ž said the 29-year-old. I didnt really know anything else growing up.Ž These days Mr. Grimms the one who stands over the pot, cooking up to 400 pounds of claws at a time. He boils them for eight minutes, lets them cool for 10. He cooks about three hours a night, spends maybe five hours grad-ing claws the next day. Thats half a day spent processing the product,Ž Mr. Grimm said. And were one of the smaller businesses.Ž What he loves most about stone crabs happens to be what all crabbers and chefs and connoisseurs alike love „ stone crabs are sustainable „ take a claw, throw the crab back into the ocean, the crab grows a new claw. As the third generation, I know theres a chance for another generation too,Ž Mr. Grimm said. Because crabs regenerate, this industry will stay around.Ž Good for Grimms, as they already have pictures of the fourth generation to run their busi-ness posted on their website, three boys under the age of 4. The Grimm boys may be too young to remember their first taste of stone crab, but Steve Gylands the boy who remembers. The owner of Cod & Capers Seafood Market in the Gardens was 12 when he first ate a stone crab. Winning a World Book Encyclopedia contest, Mr. Gyland was treated to a free week-end in Miami Beach at the Americana Hotel. His father took him to Joes Stone Crab Restaurant „ which cel-ebrates its 99th season this year and where guests now wait two hours for the Joes experience „ stone crab claws, crusty hash browns, garlic spin-ach and warm onion rolls. More than anything, Mr. Gyland remembers the guy sitting at the table across from his „ Lloyd Bridges „ star of the ocean-adventure television series Sea Hunt.Ž All the kids knew him,Ž said Mr. Gyland, now 58. To this day, I still have a signed menu from Joes Stone Crab.Ž Forever a lover of the ocean and diving, Mr. Gyland opened his seafood market in March 1984. His stone crabs come from Islamorada, Everglades City and Hernando Beach. Every October as season nears, the business owner in him thinks, The doldrums of summer are about to be over.Ž Stone crab season coincidentally, almost perfectly mirrors our economic season,Ž said Mr. Gyland, referring to the boost from winter visitors. Last year he sold roughly 60,000 pounds of stone crabs. As for what he anticipates this year, he says the catch and the economy dictate the price. A good catch means a more reasonable price, meaning mar-kets sell more and customers feel bet-ter about their appetite. Typically prices start around where prices ended or started the previous year, then adjust to market quite rapid-ly. Mr. Gyland looks back through his books from the start of last season for ref-erence. His medium claws cost $16.95 per pound, large $23.95 per pound, jumbo $29.95 per pound and colossal $34.95 per pound. Once you buy them, you leave them alone, says Chef Bernard Uffer of Lolas Seafood Eatery. Hes the boy from Bolivia who moved here in the 70s and ate stone crabs by the bag, til he ate too much. You bite into the sweet, add the sting of mustard and Whoa goes your mouth,Ž said Chef Bernard, he prefers no last names at Lolas. Then he reiterates his point, Dont mess with stone crabs,Ž dropping sentence after sentence as if slicing it home, Leave them cold. Crack them. Serve them with mustard. Thats how people like them. Thats how you serve them.Ž He says if you must experiment, serve it in a champagne flute. Or in a martini glass, over ice, little lemon, lit-tle mustard sauce, Terrific,Ž approves the chef. Price will determine if stone crabs make his New-England-centered menu. Everybody loves stone crabs,Ž but will his customers pay? Regarding price, Cod & Capers Gyland would like to turn from eco-nomics to a quick biology lesson, something very important for the consumer to understand.Ž Stone crabs have exoskeletons. They molt. They shed their old shell and grow into a new one. That new shell is larger than their body ƒ It can take a considerable amount of time to grow into ƒ The void between the meat and claw fills with water,Ž said Mr. Gyland, summing up, We call them lites or floaters, because when you cook them, they float to the top, theres a big air cavity there.Ž And some people sell them. Mr. Gyland says these lites explain street signs advertising crab claws for $4.99 per pound. Less meat, salty meat, hol-low shells, lower price, bad impres-sion. Nothing hurts him worse than when a customer walks into his market and says, Nah, I dont care for stone crabs. Tried it, wasnt very good.Ž He reaches into his case, grabs a stone crab, cracks it, removes the shell, hands it to the customer with a napkin and says, Here, this ones on us, try it.Ž The customer tends to leave with a pound or so. And then they come back. Just like the claw of the stone crab. Their sustainability marvels Mr. Gyland, Large stone crabs can grow back in a season what we took from them in the first place. What else in the world can do that?Ž Then he brings up by-catch. Longlining for marlin may hook swordfish. Trawling for shrimp may net snapper. Any fish targeted by a net may net another fish, unintentional as it may be. Not to put negativity on those fisheries, but to make a better light for stone crabs, theres no harmful by-catch,Ž said Mr. Gyland, showing just as the crab returns to the ocean alive, any creature pulled from the trap can be returned to the ocean alive. Orlo Hilton pulled those traps for 15 or 16 years. But when he says it, Fifteen, sixteen years is all I actually did that,Ž he makes it sound like his stretch was nothing. The Everglades City man spent those years waking up early, leaving the dock by 4 oclock in the morning, so he could reach the off-shore traps CLAWSFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS /FLORIDA WEEKLYThe crew of the Kristin Anne unload their first catch of the season at Grimm’s Stone Crab in Everglades City.

And because of the wonderful support and excellent training I have lost 16.6 lbs. I feel better than I have in years and it shows in all aspects of my life.Ž -Diane Calta WHO ELSE WANTS TO LOSE 12…30 LBS. IN 12 WEEKS OR LESS? PET TALES BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhen my 14-year-old Sheltie, Drew, was diagnosed with kidney failure, my veteri-narian offered me something that wasnt really an option when I started writing about pets a couple decades ago: hospice. He encouraged me to manage Drews terminal disease with daily IV fluids given at home and with a diet geared toward reducing strain on my dogs failing organs. That was a few weeks ago, and now Drews kidneys are functioning well and he looks and acts years younger than he is. No one who meets him would guess he may have only weeks to live. That quality of life is what hospice is all about, and the trend is catching on, according to advocates. The path to death is detoured a bit,Ž says Dr. Robin Downing of the Wind-sor Veterinary Clinic and The Down-ing Center for Animal Pain Management. An internationally known expert in pain management, Downing is one of a hand-ful of strong advocates for palliative care for pets, the practice of keeping animals happy and comfortable in their final days, weeks and months. We needed to find a way to help these animals live until they died,Ž Downing says. Thats what hospice is about: living fully.Ž Since the 1990s, the introduction of a series of effective nonsteroidal inflama-tory drugs (NSAIDs such as Rimadyl, Metacam and Deramaxx), along with the increased acceptance and use of comple-mentary pain medications, has changed veterinary practice. Previously, many veterinarians had avoided pain control for animals after surgery. The consensus view was that if moving hurt, a pet would be more likely to be still while healing. That thinking was changed by research showing that animals heal more quickly when pain is controlled. For veterinarians such as Downing, these improvements in pain management made it clear that in some cases, they could also ease the suffering for animals for whom they could do little else. Only a small percentage of the nations veterinarians offer end-of-life care, but there are signs that this is beginning to change. Indications of the increased inter-est include the first-ever pet hospice sym-posium at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, followed by the founding of the International Association for Animal Hos-pice and Palliative Care the following year. The American Veterinary Medical Association recently revised its guidelines to emphasize that veterinarians who do not offer hospice services should be pre-pared to refer clients to a veterinarian who does.Ž Although advances in veterinary pain management have helped propel the idea of hospice, thats not all there is to pal-liative care. Other means of easing an animals suffering may include regular subcutaneous fluids to improve hydration „ such as I provide to my dog „ oxygen therapy and assistance devices such as slings to support weakened hind ends. Hospice help may also include physical and massage therapy as well as advice: urging the covering of slippery floors with rugs for better traction, or finding or developing diets that support a patient who may not want to eat. Complementary and alternative veterinary medicine, such as acupuncture, can be part of the package as well „ as it is for Drew. The final aspect of veterinary hospice is recognizing when its time to say goodbye. And while Im certainly not looking for-ward to it, I know Ill be better prepared for the end after the extra time together my dog and I have both enjoyed. Q A month after a diagnosis of terminal kidney failure, Drew enjoyed a four-day family camp-ing trip. Daily hospice care at home is support-ing his quality of life.

This event will be hosted by officers of Access Medical Laboratories Inc.: Presi-dent/CEO Mohamed El-Hosseiny, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Susan El-Hosseiny; and vice presidents Sharif El-Hosseiny, Ryan El-Hosseiny and Adam El-Hosseiny. The celebration, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., will include a ribbon cutting at 5:15. Among the guests expected to attend are Jupiter Mayor Karen J. Golonka, Jupiter Town Manager Andy Lucasik and Northern Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce staff members. Also, Medi-cal Laboratory Director Dr. Alan Sara, and Drs. Mark L. Gordon of Los Ange-les; Mitchell Ghen of Boca Raton; Naina Sachdev of Portland, Ore., and Edwin Lee of Orlando. The state-of-the-art complex consolidates the majority of Accesss operations into a single facility, which will foster the companys diagnostic labora-tory services. Access broke ground on the new building in June 2010. Our new headquarters will give us the ability to expand our menu of spe-cialized testing domestically and inter-nationally, bring in more researchers for our Anti-Aging & Esoteric divisions, take our world class customer service to a higher level and further our mission as a laboratory committed to excellenceŽ said Ryan El-Hosseiny. The facility is located on a 3.5-acre site. This business will create more than 60 jobs in Jupiters bio-tech community. Founded in 2003, Access Medical Labs is well-known around the world for its research in advanced cardi-ac, intervention-al endocrinol-ogy/anti-aging and microbio-logical testing. Access Medical Labs reports that is it the only lab in the nation to develop a complete menu of saliva hormone testing on using the Gold StandardŽ method, Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). Q MONEY & INVESTINGBe generous responsiblyWhile this column usually focuses on the money inŽ side of the econom-ic equation, this weeks focus is on a particular aspect of money out.Ž Generosity is one form of money out; it is a foundational element of our countrys citizenry, just as much as is self-reliance and self-responsibility. It is very much a core value in Judaism, Christianity and other religions and is not to the exclusion of those self-described as spiritual but not reli-giousŽ nor atheists, as they often find their lifes journey manifesting in help-ing others. There are many paths lead-ing to the door of generosity. Most of our giving will go to our spouses, children, family, friends and charities... in some semblance of that order. This giving is not de facto; it still requires planning, deliberation, heart-felt consideration and monitoring. However, regardless of how wellintentioned the generosity, the gift can often be to the detriment of the recipi-ent. Generosity can often become a crutch for others and, in fact, unknow-ingly ease them into a lifestyle of dependency upon the giver (and other successive givers) and, ultimately, cre-ate an attitude of entitlement. Generosity without any strings attached sounds a lot better than gen-erosity with strings attached, unless the strings are meant to reward and encourage the recipient of the gift, to condition their behavior and to pro-mote assumption of responsibility for their own financial well-being. jeannette SHOWALTER CFA jshowaltercfa@yahoo.com O Here are some ideas: QChildrenIf your goal is independent, educated and skilled children with complet-ed character (not to the exclusion of other attributes), then consider forms of gifts that encourage and reward such behavior. Many parents have given financial reward for children in lower grade levels for all As or for a C average upped to a B. Some parents stop this form of incentivizing at middle school; it can have appli-cation at the high school and college levels, too. As some percent-age of high school children will drink or take drugs, consider incentivizing substance-free living. Agree with your child to submit to random drug tests and financial-ly incentivize when they have clean reports. Too harsh? To some, yes, but it can be a collaborative decision with your child and it will make sure that you are not unknowing about a big problem. In some indus-tries and professions, random testing is a requirement. You can choose to make it an absolute standard too. Consider the possibility of having your parental generosity in funding college costs be matched by your childs industry. Instead of paying for all of your childs college costs, have your child commit to a percentage contribution, through savings, a job concurrent with college or their incur-rence of student loans. Require them to have some skin in the game.Q Family and friends Many givers want to respond to this group. Unfortunately, blankcheck generosity can become crippling, inhibiting resumption of an independent and vibrant life. Giving money without constraints is often so very much easier than getting involved with the underlying causes. And writing a check often translates into writing another check and another check. Pr etty soon an economic dependent has been birthed. Why not give the recipient of your generosity the incentive to solve their problems and become self-sufficient? For instance, you could devise a plan that generously gives but requires the recipient to adopt a financially sound lifestyle and scales-down support to zero over a period of time. However, if you have allowed an adult/young adult to become your dependent, then you really need to admit your part in creat-ing the unhealthy relationship and take steps to transition the dependent away from your support. You might need some counseling just as much as the recipient. As to a romantic or marital relationship, much of the aforementioned can apply. However, when there is a large inequality between partners, there can be an inclination for the one of lesser resources to take advantage of the one with greater resources. Consider choosing a mate who spends your money as if they had worked for it as hard as you have; it might be a solu-tion to an age-old problem of not being used for your money.QCharities Someone needs to evaluate whether the charitable recipients are spending money wisely. A good cause is great if executed in a financially responsible manner and the recipients are held accountable for results. For instance, you might well be giving to a foun-dation that has an elaborate grant approval process but a non-existent process for accountability after the grant is made. Consider incentivized giving. Maybe you are already doing it. Maybe it has no application. Maybe it is something about which you have thought, not yet articulated in your mind or put into action. Generosity has the potential to engender positive character in the recipients of your gifts as long as you are giving responsibly, all the while fostering self-reliance and financial responsibility.

Starting this month, the clerks office will begin managing the tax collectors investment portfolio, with the goal of maximizing earnings. The tax collec-tors short-term funds had previously been invested in a bank money market fund. The fund custodian notified Ms. Gannon that they planned to charge the tax collector fees to manage the account because of low interest rates. Ms. Gan-nons office currently has more than $100 million in these money market accounts, and is looking to the clerks in-house investment professionals to help them earn a higher return to ben-efit taxpayers. Clerk Bock and her investment professionals have done an impressive job of managing the countys portfolio and making money for Palm Beach County, at a time when its difficult for anyone to make money on investments,Ž Ms. Gannon said. It made perfect sense to transfer our funds from a bank that was going to charge us fees to Clerk Bock and her team to manage our portfolio, earn a better return, and help save even more taxpayer money.Ž Last year, Clerk Bock was able to return $74 million in interest income to Palm Beach County, all of which went to help the County pay for operating expenses. Investment income from the clerks investment portfolio saved each Palm Beach County taxpayer $121 in 2010.

GREENER CLEANER WATER… FROM THIN AIR?BY SEANCOCHRANE Very few people understand that the water that pours from their faucet actually consumes a vast amount of energy. It is treated, cleaned and pumped from the dams through the treatment plants, along the pipes to ulti-mately end up in your drinking glass or bath tub. So wasting water not only wastes the precious resource itself, wasting water also places a higher demand on energy providers to create more elec-trical energy, which is generally generated by the burning of fossil fuels and means more pollution. The less water we treat and pump, the less pollution we will have. To this end, through education and behavioral changes we can hopefully save, reduce or reuse as much water as possible, through solutions such as installing low ”ow shower heads, water ef“cient toilets and faucets, and by looking to rain water harvesting in rain water tanks (which are not always practicable for all homes and HOAs). With those options covered, what else can a family or small business do? An alternative product that is gaining in popularity in the clean drinking water market segment is the new Wellness Series of Atmospheric water “lters. So how does an Atmospheric water “lter work exactly? Wouldnt it be nice if you could generate all the clean, safe, pure drinking water (“ve to seven gallons of fresh clean water per day) for your home or small business on site, with very little energy consumed, without having to continually replace those topmounted water “lter bottles and without having to buy water in those nasty plastic bottles all the time? Well Im pleased to tell you that the solution is at hand in the form of the Wellness Series of Atmospheric water “lters. These units not only produce water from thin air as they remove the moisture (humidity) from the air, they also cool the room as a handy by-product. It goes with-out saying that they purify the water through a series of reverse osmosis “lters, carbon “lters and UV lights. Then the water com-pletes its trip through a customdesigned Alkaline Ionized “lter. The resulting water is not only clean and pure; it is also perfectly PH balanced with a value of 9.5 PH. It is thus structured for up to six times faster hydration, and being electron-rich, it is endowed with essential antioxidant properties. The Wellness 9.5 takes water puri“cation to a new level. No plumbing is required, and since its primary source of water already has no pollution or contamina-tion, the water starts its journey in a much cleaner state than any traditional source. If that wasnt enough, it also “lters and dehu-midi“es the air in your home or business. In our of“ce, for example, it dries and cools the air so well that we are often required to reset our AC thermostat. With dri-er air in our of“ce, it feels cooler, thus saving me money on my AC bills. This makes the Wellness 9.5 not only health-friendly, but eco-friendly as well! We have been very happy with our test unit over the past three months. One of our staff mem-bers who has been using the water now no longer suffers from gout attacks because his uric acid is lowered due to drinking high-er PH (alkaline) water. Besides having several happy clients using the water, I have heard reports that Hippocrates Health In-stitute and a few Olympic athletes in training are using these new Wellness 9.5 water “lters, with positive results in hydration and overall feeling of well-being.

On televisions Get Smart,Ž a phone rings and Don Adams answers. But theres no phone in sight. Thats because the spy is answering his shoe. And that has no basis in reality, according to espionage expert H. Keith Melton, who speaks on spy craft on Oct. 24 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. In Get Smart, the shoe was used as a communication device. In the real world, the shoe that I show was used in one of the Eastern Bloc countries,Ž Mr. Melton says from his home in Boca Raton. When the American ambassador sent his shoes to be shined, the ambassadors valet would select his clothes.Ž And with that shoe, he would be a moving broadcast station. It was about stealing information and how can I communicate.Ž A prominent author and historian on espionage, Mr. Meltons program is designed to take his audience inside the Maltzs upcoming production of Alfred Hitchcocks The 39 StepsŽ to compare its characters spy craft with that used by the spies of today. Much of the equipment that spies would use 25 years ago could be built into the software of an iPhone,Ž Mr. Melton says. The 39 StepsŽ dates to 1935, and technology has changed, but the fundamen-tal goals of spies have not changed.Ž And what about The 39 StepsŽ?I think its an excellent film.

The Colony has made a name for its cabaret seasons for a decade now, bringing in talents ranging from veteran singers like Marilyn Maye to emerging vocalists like Will and Anthony Nunziata. Marilyn Maye returns this season (Jan. 24-28, Jan. 31-Feb. 4), which opens with Baby Jane Dexter (Nov. 4-5, Nov. 11-12). And the Palm Beach hotels director of entertainment, Rob Russell, couldnt be happier. She is just a legend in the Broadway world.

children were there in the audience.Ž The Royal Room is popular with performers. I think this is my fourth year down there,Ž says Miss Maye by phone from her home in Overland Park, Kan. And its such a wonderful showroom. Its large, but its very intimate. Its a first-class operation and they operate it with care and concern for the cus-tomer.Ž Its the same care with which Miss Maye plans a show. I always want the audience to go out happy that they go out having a really happy and fun experience,Ž she says. In the past decade, Miss Maye has enjoyed a resurgence of her cabaret career. Im now going into Feinsteins in New York for two weeks. This year is Jerry Hermans 80th birthday. Im going to do a whole act called The Best of Times is Now,Ž she says. And it is for me. Its a statement that talks about the time when you come to where Im appearing I hope youll have the best of times. And its a party „ its intimate enough that its always a party.Ž That intimacy has made The Colony popular with artists and audiences alike. Im so proud to say that all these artists whove traveled the world say this is one of their favorite spots to come,Ž Mr. Russell says. Its a warm intimate hotel with great ceiling and great vibe and a great sound.Ž Twins Will and Anthony Nunziata performed this summer for the third time at The Colony. It truly has been a home away from home,Ž Anthony Nunziata said in June. For the twins, a visit to The Colony is an opportunity to unwind. I love to play tennis. I think Ive beaten Will every time weve gone out,Ž Mr. Nunziata said, adding that he spends much of his time on the island just going to the beach and chilling out.Ž Then there is the matter of the connections you make. I like going to lunch with Rob Russell, John Cox and Peter Parisi. Theyre kind of our groupies,Ž Mr. Nunziata said with a laugh. Were building a nice group of friends down there.Ž That family atmosphere is popular with artists, Mr. Russell says. Our audiences are very respectful,Ž he says. We get (artists) out and about so they can see Palm Beach.Ž This season, those audiences can hear northern Palm Beach Countys own Avery Sommers (Nov. 18-19, Nov. 25-26), Algonquin Hotel veteran Steve Ross (November 30-December 3), jazz singer Nicole Henry (Dec. 14-17), former Supreme Mary Wilson (Dec. 31-Jan. 3-7), sister act Ann Hamp-ton and Liz Callaway (Jan. 17-21) and Broadway star Chita Rivera (March 20-24, March 27-31). And it doesnt hurt that the Royal Room has a capacity of about 95. The basic thing is that there are so many hotels that have closed their showrooms and the fact that they are alive and well is a credit to their opera-tion,Ž says Miss Maye, who has been a performer most of her 83 years. The fact that its an intimate room „ I work to the people, not for them „ I like being close to the audience.Ž Mr. Russell agrees.The artists walk through and they shake hands,Ž he says, adding, Weve built such a great rapport with these artists.

I liked that about him. He was kind and generous too, a good listener and friend. He helped me move apartments and put together my furniture. But if the occasion arose where he might have to hold my bag, even for a second, he would shake his head and step away. I grudgingly admired him for this, even as I had to set my purse on the ground to put on my coat. What a surprise then on a recent trip to Europe when I discovered that many men there not only carry purses but have enthusiastically adopted the trend of the man bag, also known as the murse. I sat with my friend Jane in an outdoor cafe sipping strong coffee and watching the men pass. We evaluated the bags they carried, most slung on straps over one shoulder. Some were made from black nylon, others were canvas mate-rial. Nearly every man we saw carried one. Men in tight, dark-washed jeans. Men in baggie denim wearing backward baseball caps. Tall men. Muscular men. Manly men. Is that man carrying „Ž Jane paused, evaluating. A clutch?Ž I followed her eyes to the man crossing the street. He was in fact toting a small bag tucked under his arm. A mutch, if you will.I wasnt thinking about man-purses when I met the baker in our little vil-lage. MetŽ is maybe an exaggeration. The extent of our exchange stretched to, One baguette, pleaseŽ from me and Heres your changeŽ from him. But it felt like a portentous moment. He was young and very handsome and he said bonjour with a slight narrowing of the eyes that I took for an almost-wink. When he passed me my change our fingers met, and I could still feel the warmth of his skin on the coins in my hand.Later, Jane and I walked down the mountain path that ran alongside the village. Im going to marry the baker,Ž I gushed. She raised a skeptical eyebrow.No, listen,Ž I said. Ill live in the village and eat baguettes every day.Ž I dont know if youd like to be the wife of a baker,Ž she said. I put my hands on my hips. Of course I would. Hell make me tarts, and Ill grow fat and happy. It will be perfect.Ž Jane stopped walking, suddenly serious. I mean a French baker,Ž she said. I think there would be a lot of cultural differences to overcome.Ž I started to protest, to cite the tarts again, but then I stopped myself. I thought about the man-bags wed seen on the street outside the caf. I imag-ined the baker had one tucked away somewhere. Of course Jane was talking about bigger cultural issues, about the way we define masculinity and how differ-ent societies structure the relationship between men and women. The man-bags are just a manifestation of all that. But she was right. Could I really love a man who carried a murse? Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSMurse? Purse?

We had two connected to that recently. Ana Belen Montes and Gwyn-dolyn and Kendall Myers. Theyre so highly regarded because they memo-rized documents, then encrypted them on their computers and sent them.Ž But The 39 StepsŽ is not a documentary. The goal of a movie is to entertain, not necessarily to inform,Ž Mr. Melton says. Whats important about The 39 Steps was Hitchcocks classic interpre-tation of it.Ž But Mr. Melton says he hopes his lecture will both entertain and inform. Well have a good time talking about the pieces of it that stray from reality,Ž he says. Then theres Bond „ James Bond.James Bonds franchise has been built on the idea of James Bond as an intelligence officer that does not exist,Ž Mr. Melton says. In the real world, James Bond wouldnt last four minutes. Hed be arrested in four minutes. It makes entertaining cinema but its not the real world.Ž And why is that?In some ways, movies understate the strategic importance of espionage, but they often overstate the importance of a single intelligence officer who is doing everything himself,Ž Mr. Melton says. He should know.Mr. Melton, who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, has assembled a collection of more than 8,000 spy devic-es, books and papers of eminent spies. He is on the board of the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., which was founded by Maltz Jupiter Theatre patriarch Milton Maltz. When it comes to spy craft and knowledge of worldwide intelligence, there is no one better than Keith Melton,Ž Mr. Maltz wrote in an email from his office in Cleveland. He lectures at the Central Intelligence Agency and has played an important role in the development of the International Spy Museum in Washing-ton, D.C. His commentary is fascinating and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is proud to bring him to our community. It will be a memorable evening.Ž Pieces from Mr. Meltons collection are in the spy museum. I was probably the first person they contacted,Ž Mr. Melton says. I helped provide most of the artifacts that they have on display on the museum.Ž What are some of his favorites?Ive often said if there was a fire, Id die of indecision,Ž Mr. Melton says. He spent the better part of three decades tracking down the ice ax that was used by the Soviets in 1940 to kill Leon Trotsky. Mr. Trotsky had been living in Mexico City when he was killed. Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera had prevailed upon President Cardenas to give him asylum,Ž Mr. Melton says. Its a fascinating time capsule.Ž And it provides a glimpse into the early days of spy craft. The modern world of spy craft begins in the last century,Ž Mr. Melton says. The fundamental reason is before World War II, the tradecraft tended to be personal.Ž What does that mean?If Mata Hari needed a device, an artisan would create a compact and there would be a capsule in it,Ž he says. In World War II, you didnt need one spy camera, you needed a thousand. In the United States you went to Kodak to produce a secret camera,Ž he says. It then became possible to find one device and use the device that precedes it or comes afterward. Seeing a microdot reader made in the Eastern Bloc resem-bles one made in the United States.Ž Thats part of the Cold War era.It has influenced my whole life, and certainly most of the people who will be coming there.Ž Q SPY GUYFrom page A24 >> “Spies: Movies vs. Reality,” the lecture by H.

YesLets be honest: The original FootlooseŽ (1984) was memorable because it made Kevin Bacon a star and it had a classic 80s soundtrack (Kenny Loggins, we miss you). It was not, to any extent, a goodŽ movie in terms of script or acting or any other technical feature „ except, of course, for choreography. Nonetheless, the idea of remaking something so quintessentially 80s still seems, especially in the eyes of this 80s-child reviewer, blasphemous. But Im making Footloose for this generation,Ž writer/director Craig Brewer has said. And so he has. Its the same movie, but different. The choreography is very similar to the original, and the story „ flaws and all „ is largely intact. There might not be a good reason for it to exist, but this new FootlooseŽ is cer-tainly not the cry against humanity many thought/want it to be. City boy Ren McCormack (Kenny Wormald) is new to the fictional middle-of-nowhere town of Bomont, Ga., and he doesnt fit in at all. When his aunt (Kim Dickens) and uncle (Ray McKinnon) take him in, they dont warn him that theres a law against playing music too loud. Nor do they tell him theres a law against pub-lic dancing, a restriction that came about three years earlier after the local preachers (Dennis Quaid) son was killed in a car acci-dent after a party. These days the preachers daughter, Ariel (Julianne Hough), is a wild-child who just loves to defy daddys rules. She takes a liking to Ren, but he refuses to play her game. This, in addition to the camaraderie amongst the teens and the dancing, is what the movie does well. Unfortunately „ much like the first film „ it also does a lot poorly. The plot is thin as can be, as it takes at least an hour for the main storyline of Ren petitioning the town to hold a dance to kick into gear. When he does, however, the film builds nice momen-tum into its conclusion, which allows it to end on a high. But whereas Mr. Bacon was the highlight of the original, the relatively inexpe-rienced Mr. Wormald is the worst part of this film. He doesnt have the screen pres-ence, the toughness or the acting ability to captivate us as the lead, and its his relative weakness that does the rest of the narra-tive a disservice. No doubt he can dance, but a rebellious teenager who leads other young men and never backs down from a fight needs to first and foremost be a con-vincing, authoritative presence, which Mr. Wormald is not. There is one inescapably great thing about the story in Footloose,Ž though, and it is essential for high school students of any era to experience: In all teenagers, there is both the desire and the need to express oneself in whatever way neces-sary. For the teens here, its dancing; for others it might be art, writing, music, whatever. Forbidding that right is suppres-sive and foolhardy. More of this theme, and less pseudotoughness and silly love stories, wouldve made FootlooseŽ substantially better. As is, its an entertaining and forgettable night out.

Mr. Gordon-Levitt is good and this is a powerful story (with wel-come light-hearted moments, courtesy of Mr. Rogen) about an unthinkable situation. Rated R. Machine Gun Preacher ++ (Gerard Butler, Michelle Monaghan, Michael Shannon) A drug-addicted excon named Sam (Mr. Butler) finds Jesus and fights for children in Africa in this heartwarming story that plays up good Christian values. But is it a good movie? Not really. Sams sacrifices are hard to accept, and it drags to just over two hours. Rated R.What’s Your Number? ++ (Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Ari Graynor) With her sister (Ms. Graynor) about to get married, Ally (Ms. Faris) asks neigh-bor Colin (Mr. Evans) to track down Allys exes to see if she let the right one get away. It has some funny moments, but ultimately suffers from the same tired predictability that afflicts most romantic comedies. Rated R. Q CAPSULES

Seasons 52 Fresh Grill opened in Naples this week. Its 19th location (others include Palm Beach Gar-dens, Boca Raton and Fort Lauder-dale), the 8-year-old chain features seasonally inspired cooking with every item under 475 cal-ories.Ž Co-founder and master sommelier George Miliotis oversees the wine pro-gram that features 100 choices (65 avail-able by the glass) encompassing 25 vari-etals from 14 countries. Q. What makes your wine program special? A. We appeal to all wine drinkers. The knowledgeable guest will find unique and fun wines, and a newbie can have fun learning about different wines. We want our guests to try new wines, so we offer a small taste of any wine to a guest before they buy. Q. What separates your wine program from those of other restaurants with multiple by-the-glass selections? A. We want wines where we have a say in the taste and deliver a good price. We custom blend our Indaba Chardon-nay from South Africa, and work with Jorge Ordonez, our Spanish supplier, to make a special merlot. We purchase a special blend of Riesling from Germany from Selbach. Q. What are the biggest challenges of a successful wine program? A. How to make wines approachable in flavor and price. Our varietals are listed from softer, approachable wines to the more complex and powerful, from lower in cost to the higher prices. The ability to recommend a wine to go with a food will separate us. Q. What trends do you see developing? A. I think lesser-known wines will become very popular, from countries that are not on everyones wine map. We have a beautiful merlot from Slovenia, a torrontes from Argentina, and Spain has a lot of different grapes from old vines. Those vines produce more concentrated flavors and aromas, and the wines from them are extremely affordable. Q SEASONS 52/ COURTESY PHOTO George Miliotes A chat with master sommelier George Miliotis of Seasons 52 VINO jim McCRACKEN vino@florida-weekly.com O Whether your glass is half empty or half full, make sure it can do the job cor-rectly. Not all glasses that hold wine are perfect wine glasses. The glass you drink from should allow you to appreciate the color, aroma and flavor in ways that make the wine accessible to your eyes, nose and taste buds. How many glass shapes and sizes do you need? That depends on your budget, degree of fanaticism and storage space. There are four basic glass shapes: red, white, champagne flute and dessert.Q Red wine glasses have a bigger bowl and opening to let in more air, allowing the robust flavors and aromas to concentrate as you raise the glass to your lips.QWhite wine glasses tend to be smaller than red ones, as white wine is usually lighter in body and flavor, and the smaller amount of wine poured helps maintain the cool temperature. For red and white wine glasses, the shape should be narrower at the top than the middle of the bowl, to concentrate the fruit and flavors as you lift the glass to your nose and lips. The bowl should be large enough so you can swirl the wine around to release the aromas.QThe champagne flute is designed to present a narrower surface area and gently release the small bubbles the spar-kling wine makers worked so hard to put into the bottle.QDessert wine glasses are smaller because the flavors are more concen-trated, and because fortified wines like sherry and port are higher in alcohol. When purchasing wine glasses, consider utility over looks. Choose those made of clear, thin crystal to allow the color of the wine to shine. The rim should be cut (the same width as the glass), rather than rolled, to allow the wine to flow smoothly onto the tongue. Colored glass and cut crystal sides are also best left for decorative glasses, as they obscure the wine inside. The modern stemless tumblers are stylish, but if serving wine at proper temperature is important to you, then you dont want your hands on the glass to start warming it up. You can invest a lot of time and money in selecting glasses for every varietal, but for all but the most discriminating wine devotees, the four basic designs will suit virtually all occasions.
