The breath of the evening is crisp as shadows grow long and threaten to grab us, pulling us into the mystery of the night and Halloween. Its then that witches and goblins of the human kind take to the streets and revel in tricks and treats and remind us of the extra dimension that hovers between life and death, this world and the next. Children chant Bloody Mary! Bloody Mary!Ž to lure a ghastly apparition into view. Of course, the ghost appears in the theater of childrens minds. But ghosts also appear in theaters.Even the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is not immune.Most theaters have a ghost light on the darkened stage. Its steeped in tradition,Ž says Andrew Kato, artistic director of the Maltz. There are two rea-sons why theres a ghost light.

But after the debate, another candidate „ Michele Bachmann „ was thinking nein-nein-neinŽ when Wayne Newton, who on national televi-sion repeatedly called her beautifulŽ and pawed her as if she were a showgirl visit-ing his dressing room, clumsily sought to plant a wet, sloppy smooch on the woman he hopes will become the next leader of the free world. I suppose Mr. Newton felt entitled to a little action; he had just announced his support of Ms. Bachmanns bid for the White House. Still, I believe Ms. Bach-mann would have appreciated a nice hefty campaign check more than all of that high-profile canoodling. In a move that almost every American female has perfected (this I know from painful personal experience), Ms. Bachmann skillfully turned so that Mr. Newtons salivating lips landed harmlessly on her forehead. Serious surgical mischief has been done to Mr. Newtons 69-year-old face. Now that Moammar Gadhafi and Michael Jack-son have left the building, Mr. Newton, who is the Michael Jordan of lounge liz-ards, stands alone as the weirdest-looking human on the planet. Poor Michele Bach-mann; it was so bright after she won that straw poll in Iowa in August. Things have been all downhill ever since, though. Whats next in store for this poor woman? Campaign swings with Siegfried and Roy? To say the Wayne Newton televised tte--tte was strange and off-putting would seem to be a given, but, of course, Fox News commentator Greta Van Sus-teren saw it differently. Thats pretty hot!Ž squealed Ms. Van Susteren, who is no stranger to the plastic surgeons scalpel herself. Aside from the groping and attempted lip-locking, Ms. Bachmann appeared gen-uinely grateful for Mr. Newtons endorse-ment. She has now secured the support of blue-haired, chain-smoking women over the age of 75 who are addicted to slot machines. Judging from recent polls, that roughly doubles her existing voter base. One might think that the Newton-Bachmann moment represented the apogee of weirdness in the 2012 presidential race, but that is unlikely. Its way early. Who knows what grotesqueries await us down the road? This whole process has been one of surprises, and there has been no bigger surprise than Herman Cain. Mr. Cain has come from nowhere to challenge Mitt Romney as the early front-runner. Ill admit to this: I like Mr. Cain. He is funny, well-spoken, attractive and energetic. With that said, it must also be noted that he has about as much business being president as, well, Wayne Newton. If Mr. Cain has given any serious thought at all to foreign policy, he has yet to betray it. And it is most instructive that he is con-ducting a book tour at the same time he purports to be running for president. Whenever challenged about his loony 9-9-9Ž plan, which among other things would impose a regressive national 9 per-cent sales tax, he yammers about apples and oranges.Ž I defy anyone to explain what all this talk about fruit has to do with anything. Pundits praise Mitt Romney for his debate performances, but „ in my view „ he comes across as overly practiced and robotic. You could accuse the man of masterminding the Kennedy assassination and he would never wipe that plastic grin off of his face. He is the Republicans 2012 version of John Kerry „ and that aint good. Yet standing next to Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make almost anyone look like a statesman. I hate to be an I told you so,Ž but when Gov. Perry entered the race, I wrote a column predicting that he would create an initial stir and then fade fast. He currently is in single digits or low double digits in most polls. My opinion was based on what I had seen of Gov. Perry when I lived in Texas. When it was made clear in debates that he cannot think on his feet, the public and the pundits seemed shocked. I dont know why; he has trouble thinking when hes sitting in an empty room. Gov. Perry is neither smart nor diligent, but he is a master at raising funds, reward-ing cronies and doing whatever it takes to maintain power. The question Im waiting for someone to ask the preening cowpoke is this: You came from hardscrabble roots, and you have drawn only paychecks issued by the state of Texas for nearly 30 years. How have you become wealthy, man? Gov. Perry may yet rally, however. Never underestimate the power of money in American politics. And he has access to tons of cash. Before this 2012 campaign is completed, I predict that we will have a trove of memories to rival the Newton-Bachmann moment. I certainly hope so. None of the Republicans appear to have a clue as to what to do about much of anything. And while President Obama is adroit at knocking off terrorists and despots, he is clearly overmatched when it comes to dealing with the economy. Per-haps thats why he sends Vice President Joe Biden out to make a fool of himself on a regular basis. Thats what vice presi-dents are for, one must assume. Things are bleak and getting no better. Theres no marching around that. We need diversions. We need moments like the one Wayne Newton and Michele Bachmann provided. If we couldnt laugh occasion-ally, wed do nothing but cry. Unleash the clowns, I say, and let them perform in the three-ring Republican circus that is Fox News. My dream occurrence? Julia Roberts sticking her tongue in Ron Pauls ear dur-ing an interview with Sean Hannity.

If you put aside the political rants, the sto-ries are a stark pointillist portrayal of the grinding misery of the Great Recession.And Bank of America has very little to do with it. The recession has added a layer of joblessness on top of pun-ishingly dysfunctional and expensive health-care and higher-education sys-tems. Despite themselves, the people posting at the 99 Percent page arent really making an implicit case for burn-ing down the financial system, but for blowing up how we handle health care and higher education. College students and recent graduates are overrepresented. Their complaint comes down to too much debt, and too few job opportunities to get out from under it. Theres the guy with the mas-ters from Harvard who owes $60,000 and lives off temp jobs. Theres the woman who is paying her $50,000 debt and the $20,000 debt for her 22-year-old daughter. And on and on. The representatives of these debt-burdened graduates shouldnt be at Zuccotti Park, but at the American Association of University Professors or some other arm of the academic complex that gouges stu-dents. College tuition has been increas-ing at a rapid clip. Does anyone believe that higher ed is getting constantly bet-ter? Its an inflationary spiral. Another running theme is the high cost of health care and the lack of insurance. One man writes of his job that pays 15 percent less than it did five years agoŽ even as health insurance costs are up over 175 percent.Ž Expressing a characteristic plaint in an era of stagnating income, he says Every-thing costs more, yet I make less!Ž Many of those posting their stories are members of the working class or strug-gling middle class. There is an undercur-rent of family breakdown „ the woman whose husband left her after 30 years, the hard-pressed single moms. There are tales of men losing decent-paying jobs. The puerile ideology of Occupy Wall Street is irrelevant to all of this. Gold-man Sachs could be dissolved tomorrow and the wealth of the 1 percent con-fiscated, and it wouldnt make college or health care cheaper, or create one new job. If the revolutionŽ yearned for by the protesters is insipid, theres no doubt that the moment calls for bold economic reforms and a rethinking of health care and higher education. President Barack Obamas misbegotten contribution is a health-care law that wont control costs and will insure more people only while making the current system more unsustainable. Republicans often dont even bother to try to connect their program to the troubles of work-ers down the income scale. The leading establishment Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, wants to cut their capital-gains taxes. The leading tea party presidential candidate, Herman Cain, wants to raise their taxes. If nothing else, We Are the 99 PercentŽ is a reminder that the suffering is real. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONHeed the 99 Percent u t a w a d rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O When the national memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. was dedicated, Presi-dent Barack Obama said of Dr. King, If he were alive today, I believe he would remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of Wall Street without demoniz-ing all who work there.Ž The dedi-cation occurred amidst the increasingly popular and increasing-ly global Occupy Wall Street movement. What Obama left unsaid is that King, were he alive, would most likely be protesting Obama administration poli-cies. Not far from the dedication ceremony, Cornel West, preacher, pro-fessor, writer and activist, was being arrested on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. He said, before being hauled off to jail: We want to bear witness today that we know the relation between cor-porate greed and what goes on too often in the Supreme Court decisions. ... We will not allow this day of Martin Luther King Jr.s memorial to go without some-body going to jail, because Martin King would be here right with us, willing to throw down out of deep love.Ž West was arrested with 18 others, declaring solidarity with the Occupy movement all around the world, because we love poor people, we love working people, and we want Martin Luther King Jr. to smile from the grave that we havent forgot his movement.Ž Over the same weekend as the dedication, the U.S. military/CIAs drone campaign, under Commander-in-Chief Obama, launched what the indepen-dent, nonprofit Bureau of Investiga-tive Journalism, based in London, called the 300th drone strike, the 248th since Obama took office. According to the BIJ, of the at least 2,318 people killed by drone strikes, between 386 and 775 were civilians, including 175 children. Imagine how Obamas fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Dr. King, would respond to those grim statistics. In 1963, King published a collec-tion of sermons titled Strength to Love.Ž His preface began, In these turbulent days of uncertainty the evils of war and of economic and racial injustice threaten the very survival of the human race.Ž Three of the 15 sermons were written in Georgia jails, including Shat-tered Dreams.Ž In that one, he wrote, To cooperate passively with an unjust system makes the oppressed as evil as the oppressor.Ž King revisited the idea of shattered dreams four years later, eight months before his assassination, in his speech called Where Do We Go From Here,Ž saying: Our dreams will sometimes be shattered and our ethe-real hopes blasted. ... Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.Ž Earlier in that year, 1967, a year to the day before he was killed, King gave his oft-overlooked Beyond VietnamŽ speech at Riverside Church in New York City. King preached, I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today, my own government.Ž With those words, with that speech, King set the tone for his final, fateful year. Despite death threats, and his close advisers urging him not to go to Mem-phis, King went to march in solidarity with that citys sanitation workers. On April 4, 1968, he was shot and killed on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel. Deeply impacted at the time by the assassination, we can follow two young men along Kings arc of moral justice all the way to Occupy Wall Street. One was John Carlos, a U.S. Olympic track star. Carlos won the bronze medal in the 200-meter race at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Carlos and his teammate Tommie Smith, who won the gold, raised their black-gloved fists in the power salute on the medal stand, instantly gaining global fame. They both stood without shoes, protesting black children in poverty in the United States. Last week, John Carlos spoke at Occupy Wall Street, and he told me after, Im just so happy to see so many people who are standing up to say: Were not asking for change. We demand change.Ž The other person is the Rev. Jesse Jackson. He was with King when he was assassinated. On a night when the New York City Police Department seemed to be making a move on Occupy Wall Streets first-aid tent, Jackson was there. Just days past his 70th birthday, Jackson joined arms with the young protesters, defying the police. The police backed off. And the arc of the moral universe bent a bit more toward justice. 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.

FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2011 Pets of the Week To adopt a pet PET TALES BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIn less than a couple of generations, our dogs have moved from the barnyard to the backyard to the kitchen to the bedroom to the bed. Its a cultural shift that has passed some pet owners by, however, and thats a shame. I have always had difficulty understanding why people keep dogs outside. If keep-ing a beautiful house and yard are of the utmost importance to you, then dont get a dog. If you know someone in your family cant abide a dog in the house, for whatever reason, then dont get a dog. If you cant let a dog be a part of your family, then dont get a dog. (Please note: I am talking about backyard pets here, not working dogs whose social, mental and physical needs are more than met by their daily routines.) You dont get the benefits of companionship from a dog you see so little. You dont even get much in the way of protec-tion from the pet who has no access to the house. And dont count on outdoor dogs as an early warning system. These animals often become such indiscriminate bark-ers that you couldnt tell from their sound whether the dogs are barking at a prowler or at a toddler riding a tricycle down the street. Besides, people who keep outdoor dogs seem to become quite good at ignor-ing the noise they make, as any angry neighbor can vouch. Experts say many outside pet dogs will never really bond with owners who interact with them so little. When the puppy is no longer cute and the children grow tired of the care they promised to provide, or when the destructiveness escalates or the neighbors complain about the noise, its often just easier to dump the dog than solve the problem. Backyard dogs do indeed often become a problem to their owners. Bored and lonely, these animals develop any number of bad habits. They dig holes in the yard, bark endlessly day and night, and become chewers of outdoor furniture, sprinkler heads and siding. And sometimes, with-out the socialization all dogs need, they become aggressive, ready to bite anyone who comes into their territory. If youre considering getting a puppy or dog with the intent of keeping him exclu-sively outside, please reconsider „ for the animals sake as well as your own and that of your neighbors. For those who love pets, a pristine home is nothing compared to the pleasures of living with an animal whos really bonded to you. If you have a dog who has been banished because of behavior problems, find some-one to help you turn the situation around. Ask your veterinarian for a referral to a behaviorist or trainer who can show you how to overcome the things that are driv-ing you crazy, whether its house-soiling, uncontrolled chewing or just the ill-man-nered exuberance of a dog who doesnt know any better. Allergies are a tad trickier, but an allergist may be able to help, along with atten-tion to keeping the house and pets cleaner, using air cleaners and turning bedrooms into no-pet zones for allergy-free sleep. Its worth the effort. Once you have a dog you can welcome into your home and your heart, youll start to reap the benefits of a relationship thats finally being real-ized to its fullest potential. And thats good news for you both.

PAGE 8 FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2011 reason is so that you can walk into the building and turn on the actual lightsŽ and not walk off the stage. And the other reason?The myth is that the light is to keep the theater from going dark to keep the evil spirits from getting into mischief.Ž Or, more simply put:Its supposed to illuminate the good ghosts and keep away the bad ghosts,Ž he says. What kind of ghosts haunt the Maltz? There have been discussions that there is a little girl in our theater,Ž Mr. Kato says. Its usually, of course, when no one is in the building, and she lurks in the back hallways. I havent heard people mention it in the past couple of years.Ž Mr. Kato says he has not seen the ghost. The ghost light definitely is working when I am there,Ž he says. But what of other spirits and other places? Hamlets father, who inhabited the castle of Elsinore. The Flying Dutch-man, made famous in Wagners opera. Charles Dickens ghosts of London from A Christmas Carol.Ž They all exist in the minds of audiences and readers from across the gen-erations. And they remind us of our own frailty and, ultimately, our own mortality. Are some places haunted?The Riddle House, at Yesteryear Village, has raised questions for years. Long a landmark on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach, the 1905 structure was moved to the South Flor-ida Fairgrounds Yesteryear Village to make way for new buildings at Palm Beach Atlantic University. At one time, the Victorian-style house served as a funeral home. Thats handy, given that the house was across the street from Woodlawn Cemetery. The house supposedly is haunted by the spirit of a man named Joseph, who hanged himself in the attic. It has been claimed that Josephs ghost dislikes men and will attack them. John Picano, spokesman for the South Florida Fair, says he has not seen the ghost. But I didnt go looking for it, either.Ž Still, the tale was convincing enough to lure the ghost-hunting crew of the Travel Channels series Ghost Adven-turesŽ to the house in 2008. Visitors can judge the places ghost-worthiness for themselves during Yesteryear Villages Evening in the Dark tours. Josephs ghost is part of local lore.So are the pioneer graves under the Norton Museum of Art, just south of the former site of the Riddle House. The old Lakeside Cemetery had been phased out and most of the graves moved across the street to Woodlawn Cemetery. But some peoples relatives could not be found to authorize the move of their graves; others did not wish to disturb the graves when the land was made into a city park. Its not really known how many pioneer graves remain on the site, but a plaque pays tribute to the 40 or so people buried there. Even the Historical Society of Palm Beach Countys headquarters building is not immune. I do not know of any certified ghost sightings although some of our volun-teers are convinced the courthouse has an other-worldly guest,Ž according to Debi Murray, chief curator. The historical society is now in the old 1915 Palm Beach County Courthouse in downtown West Palm Beach. So who could it be? A condemned criminal, perhaps? If I had to guess, I would say it was Guy Metcalf, the school superintendent who shot himself in his office in the building in February 1918,Ž Ms. Murray suggests. But I have no way to prove hes haunting us.Ž But theres no way to prove that he is not. So maybe these ghosts do exist, if only in the minds of those willing to believe. Q HALLOWEENFrom page 1Clematis by Fright — Free entertainment and a live concert, plus costume contests for all ages.

Initial disgust for the garment centered on implied animal abuse, but Ms. Freire deflected that issue by pointing out that the nipples had been discarded by a tannery and that her use amounted to "recycling." The 32-year-old Ms. Freire, who has worked with mainstream entertainers such as Christina Aguilera, was kept so busy with the animal-abuse angle that she was largely spared having to explain another issue „ why anyone would want to wear a dress made with cow nipples. Q Q Death is big busines s in J apan, with 1.2 million people a year passing away and overtaxing the country's cemeter-ies and crematoriums. With the aver-age wait for disposal at least several days, and space running short in funeral homes, corpse hotelsŽ have opened in many cities, with climate-controlled guest roomsŽ renting for the equiva-lent of about $155 a night, with viewing rooms where relatives can visit the bod-ies daily until cremation is available. Q The world's real economy may be flagging, but not necessarily the make-believe economy of online mul-tiplayer games, according to reporting by The Wall Street Journal (July) and the website Singularity Hub (August). For example, entrepreneur Ailin Graef's Anshe Chung Studios is worth mil-lionsŽ of real U.S. dollars, earned mostly by managing rentals of make-believe real estate and brokering make-believe money transactions in the game Sec-ond Life. Ms. Graef also commands top (real) dollar for her designs of makebelieve fashions for players' game char-acters (avatars). Two other companies are suing each other in federal court in San Francisco over the copyright to their lucrative business models of creating make-believe animals (horses, rabbits) that sell very well to players who take them on as game pets for their characters or breed them to make other make-believe animals. Q No sooner had Anthony Sowell been convicted in August of murder-ing 11 women in Cleveland and burying their remains around his property than entrepreneur Eric Gein of Florida had hired someone to fill sandwich bags of soil from Mr. Sowell's property so that he could sell the souvenir dirt for $25 a gram on the Internet. (Mr. Gein follows well-publicized salesmen who have famously collected the pubic hair of New York prostitute-killer Arthur Shawcross, the crawlspace dirt from the house of John Wayne Gacy, and the fried hairŽ of Ted Bundy „ that fell on the floor as he was executed.) Q The entrepreneurial spirit Weird scienceQ In July, a surgeon from Britain's Oxford Radcliffe Hospital announced a cure for a 57-year-old man with a rare condition that made, in his mind, audible and ever-louder sounds whenever his eyeballs moved. Superior canal dehis-cence syndromeŽ elevates the interior sounds of the body (such as heartbeat and the frictionŽ of muscles moving against muscles) to disturbing levels. Q Artificial meat (grown in a test tube from animal stem cells) has been theo-retically planned for about 10 years, but a European Science Foundation audience in September heard predictions that lab-grown sausage might be available as soon as next year. The meat is pro-duced in sheets (shmeatŽ) and would be prohibitively expensive at first, in that the largest specimen produced so far measures only about one inch long and a third of an inch wide. The biggest drawback facing artificial muscle tissue: that even lab-grown muscles require exercise to prevent atrophy. Q In an art-science collaboration in August, Dutch artist Jalila Essaidi and Utah State researcher Randy Lewis produced a prototype bulletproof skin „ or at least skin that would limit a .22-caliber bullet to only about 2 inch-es penetration into a simulated human body. Genetically engineered spider silk (reputed to be five times stronger than steel) was grafted between layers of dermis and epidermis. Mused Essaidi, we in the near future ƒ (may) no longer need to descend from a godly bloodline in order to have traits like invulnerabilityƒŽ Q Leading economic indicatorsTurned down once before, liquor manufacturer EFAG convinced Germany's Fed-eral Patent Court in September to award trademark protection to its schnapps with the brand name Ficken, which in German translates directly into what in English is known as the F-word. The court acknowl-edged that the name is unquestionably in poor taste but is not sexually discrimina-toryŽ and does not violate public mor-als. In fact, the court noted, the word is widely used in Germany. Q DMV is a dangerous placeQ The Department of Motor Vehicles office in Roseville, Calif., was closed for a week in July after a driv-ing school student crashed into the building and left a 5-foot hole in the wall. Q A young man taking a test at the drivers' center in Brisbane, Australia, in August lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a bench outside the building, hitting his mother, who was waiting for him. Q A 56-year-old DMV driving tester was killed in July when the woman she was evaluating ran off the road in Wil-liamsburg, Va., and struck a tree. Q

And sometimes a rare holiday piece will bring an exceptionally high price. Morphy Auctions of Denver, Pa., sold this Vegetable Halloween Man last year. The figure has radish arms, zucchini legs, walnut feet and a watermelon „ not a pumpkin „ for a head. He grins and his glass eyes move with the help of a clockwork mechanism. It may be a unique display piece for a store. The 17-inch figure had many bidders and sold for $19,550. Q: I heard that glass caskets were once made in the United States. Is that true? A: Yes. Pressed-glass caskets were made from about 1915 to 1924, but there are patents for glass caskets dating to the 1860s. Early records show that a company in Orville, Ohio, made glass caskets in 1877. It was a midwestern industry. At least 12 Midwest companies made glass caskets, most using a 1915 patent registered by James DeCamp. Most were small children s caskets because adult-size caskets were so difficult to make. Thats why large glass caskets were reserved for holyŽ people and other important peo-ple. Some glass caskets can be seen in Catho-lic churches in the United States and abroad. Most caskets used today weigh 150 to 200 pounds. An adult glass casket weighed more than 300 pounds and if dropped or hit, it might break, an undesirable event at a funeral. Q: I bought an antique, solid-oak ice box about 35 years ago. There is a brass plate on the front that says Challenge, Trademark, Iceberg, Challenge Corn Planter Co., Grand Haven, Mich.Ž The patent date of April 12, 1887, is stenciled on the back. Can you give me any history of the company and estimate the value? A: Challenge Corn Planter Co. was in business in Grand Haven from 1883 to 1929. The company made ice boxes (now we use refrigerators) as well as corn planters. Ice boxes were first made in England during the 19th century. The wooden box was lined with tin or another metal and insu-lated with sawdust, straw or seaweed. Blocks of ice were delivered by the iceman. Other meth-ods of refrigeration were developed in the late 1800s. Electric refrigerators were first sold commercially in 1913. Your ice box is worth $300 to $500. Q: I have a pair of Rosenthal porcelain doves in mint condi-tion. They were purchased in Europe before or during World War II. Each is marked Rosenthal Germany HandgemachtŽ with the crown-over-X mark in the center. Theres also a name under the mark, but I can only make out the first initials, F and H. I would like to sell the figurines, but I have seen their price listed at $200 all the way up to $1,300. Please help. A: The other mark on your doves is F. HeidenreichŽ for F ritz Heidenreich (18951966), who worked for Rosenthal from 1919 until 1960. He headed Rosenthals art department in Selb, Germany, starting in 1946. Heidenreich designed the doves in the 1930s, but they were made for decades. Thats why the price can vary considerably. It depends on the age of the doves and their condition. And if what you saw online were asking prices, you may never know if they actually sold at those prices. Q: I discovered that our family has five silver-plated spoons with figures of girls on them along with five different names: Annette, Cecile, Emilie, Marie and Yvonne. They are not particularly shiny. Can you tell me anything about them, their value and whether I can use any cleaning supplies to brighten the spoons without damaging them? A: You have a set of Dionne Quintuplet spoons. The end of each handle has a figure of one of the girls. The identical quintuplets were born in Callander, Ontario, Canada, on May 28, 1934. They became wards of the state when they were only a few months old. They were put under the guardianship of Dr. Alon R. Dafoe, the doctor who delivered them, and lived in the Dafoe Hospital and Nursery across the road from the family farm. Their mother opened a souvenir shop on the farm and sold items picturing the girls and souve-nirs like fertility stonesŽ from the farm. The publicity about their birth made the quintu-plets famous throughout the world. Up to 6,000 visitors a day came to watch the girls play, and I was one of them. The area known as QuintlandŽ became the biggest tourist attraction in Ontario. The girls returned to live with their family in 1943. Thousands of special dolls and souvenirs were made picturing the quints at different ages. Emilie died in 1954, Marie in 1970 and Yvonne in 2001. Annette and Cecile still live in Canada. You can use any brand of silver polish to clean the spoons, but if the silver plate has worn off, no amount of cleaning will help. A set of spoons like yours is worth $60 to $75. Tip: Wash your hands before handling old paper collectibles. The oil from your hands will cause damage. Museum person-nel wear white cotton gloves.

PAGE 12 FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2011 When it comes to planning for the inevitable exit from life that awaits us all, few of us are prepared to sit down and begin the initial planning this event requires. During this past week, while deeply engaged in the travail and excite-ment of moving to a new home, the sheer volume of things collected over 30 years of marriage proved daunting. Included were items carried forward from, yes, even our toddler days, and into our long ago matrimonial home (Do we really need this beaten and battered baby table?). Well, decisions can no longer be forestalled about what eventually is to become of all this stuff. We do try. Approached in the cold light of day and with steel reso lve, things are pitched into the boxes to go to the local charity, only to be withdrawn at night from the growing pile, with a pang of remorse at having been so callous as to abandon something embedded with so many memories. This is not an uncom-mon experience. We all, at some future time, must come to terms with the mass of things that have gathered up into a giant tumbleweed of possessions that are blown along with us, from place to place, by the wind of change in our lives. A good friend who once ran an antiques and auction business frequently encoun-tered people who were torn between the two opposite polls of keepŽ or toss.Ž He helped his customers over the hump and to face the challenge of lightening their material load. He got them to a place where they granted themselves permis-sion to give up some of the artifacts of their lives. He did this by simply suggest-ing to customers that shedding Grann ys rocker or Mommas happy-face cookie jar was OK because now it was time for someone else to enjoy these cherished items. This often served to lessen the haunt of guilt about their giving up a pos-session with many personal and histori-cal associations. I thought my friends approach was ingenious. He provided an optimistic alternative to what otherwise was an exhausting and gloomy task. Even better, you could imagine someone else would surely find utility and pleasure in the newŽ addition to their homes, and yet another layer of memories would be added to those created while the object had been in your possession. This is a rite of passage. You begin to accept, with the advance of age, its time to move on when the only purpose a pos-session serves is its capacity to touch a time and a memory known only to you. That excuse may be good enough for many years (and I have a truckload or two to prove it), but there will come a day when serious thought must be given to what will be the legacy you leave that can create a memory that can be known and carried forward by others. This is a time of thoughtful reckoning that is better planned on the day we are given versus the day we think, sometime in the future, well get around to the options. In philanthropy, we anticipate this moment and name the journey toward resolution of all those things yet to be resolved as Leave a Legacy.Ž This is not just about things.Ž It includes making decisions about all the assets accumu-lated over a lifetime. Everyone, regardless of how much money they have, the size of their house, or the length of their list of possessions, can leave a legacy and improve the lives of both their families and the communi-ties they love. Said one donor, You dont have to be wealthy, you just have to be willing.Ž Our local estate and planned giving councils raise awareness of the impor-tance of planned giving and the role of philanthropy in helping individuals to leave lasting legacies now, and forever, to meet a diversity of community needs. A simple phone call to make an appoint-ment with your lawyer, accountant, trust officer, insurance agent or financial plan-ner can get you started. Think of all things accumulated in life as embroidery on the fabric of a life well lived. When the fabric is gone, what remains for the ages are the vision and sum of what we now know truly matters that can be carried forward for the benefit and well being of others. This is the gift of a lifetime that we all have the power to give. 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. 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 information, see The hurt was more than Eve could bear. Her husband of 15 years, Bill, had moved out several months prior, after announc-ing he was no longer in love with her. She had no choice but to work her way through the maze of legal proceedings, worrying about finances and her chil-drens emotions. Her closest friends had rallied around her. She was beginning to pick up the tattered pieces of her life. But she hadnt heard a single word from her in-laws. Throughout her married life, she had treated her husbands parents as is if they were her own. How could they be so callous and disinterested? The mother-in-law Gloria was struggling to maintain her composure. Her son Bill had confided he was leaving Eve. She prayed he would change his mind. Bill could be short-tempered and difficult. Eve on the other hand was a very special human being and had always been there for her. Sometimes, it seemed she liked her daughter-in-law a heck of a lot more than her son. She started to dial Eves number a dozen times, but she didnt know what she would say and was afraid Bill would accuse her of taking sides. The emotional fallout of divorce is far reaching. Extended family members must sort out their own complicated reactions to the pending breakup. If you are going through this, you may feel guilty and blame yourself, often worrying you didnt equip your child with the skills to sustain a long-term relationship. This is a particular insecurity of parents who have either had a contentious marriage or were divorced. You may, in fact, be confused by the profound depth of your feelings, likened by some to the necessary steps of grieving: denial, anger, depression, bargaining and ultimately, acceptance. At this stressful time, you certainly wish to express loyalty and support to your own flesh and blood. But what if you have enjoyed a rich, mutually support-ive bond over many years with your childs spouse? Should you be expected to give this relationship up? There is no clear-cut answer: the camps will be divided as to the proper pro-tocol. And certainly, the way the parties address this sticky issue will dictate how the relationships evolve going forward. Eve and others in her circumstances may misread the feelings and intents of their in-laws. When there is no contact, there is no way for the other person to know what you are truly feeling. It is not uncommon for them to interpret your silence as disinterest, or callous insensi-tivity, when in fact, the opposite might be the true explanation. You may actually be heartsick you are not in touch. You are now placed in the unenviable position of navigating a totally different relationship with the person you may have treated like a son or daughter. You must walk the fine line of deciding whether to maintain this bond when it could poten-tially alienate your son or daughter. The dynamics become further complicated when there are grandchildren involved: this person may the gatekeeper to your relationship with the young people. A straightforward conversation with your son or daughter to address all feel-ings about maintaining contact with their ex-spouse is vitally important. The purpose is to initiate a clarification of every-ones views of family relationships going forward. The outcome is often determined by the circumstances and the emotional maturity and comfort level of the indi-viduals involved. Depending on which spouse may have initiated the breakup, there may be resultant hurts and sensitivities. Asking your child to help you set boundaries to what they consider off-limit discus-sions or activities is a sign of respect for their feelings and a show of consideration. Your child will probably be seeking reassurance of your loyalty and concern. What do you do if your child is adamant that they dont want you to have any contact with their ex-spouse? The answer is obviously loaded and not without con-sequence. There may tremendous angst if you are asked to choose sides. No one likes his hands to be tied. You will have to sort through the discomfort of being asked to adjust to expec-tations that put you in a position of poten-tially behaving in a way that feels awkward or unnatural. There are those of you who will be inclined to say to your son or daughter: Hey, Ive had my own relationship with your spouse for many years. Youre not going to tell me who I can be friends with.Ž This conflict oftentimes comes up with siblings, as well, who have enjoyed the camaraderie of sisters or brothers in-law whom they have considered dear friends, rather than relatives. And then there will be those who say, Blood is thicker than water. I have no choice but to side with my family. I will sever ties to avoid complications going forward.Ž Each choice may bring a heavy heart. Emotions are frayed on all fronts, so there may be a tendency for all parties to be defensive or thin-skinned. You may have many opinions about how your chil-dren handled the marriage. However, the complicated reasons for why the mar-riage unraveled are for the two of them to decide, unless they approach you for input. You should restrain from critical comments, or unsolicited advice, AND especially avoid negative comments about the ex in-law. What is the point of telling your daughter that you never thought your son-in-law would amount to much, or your son that you thought his wife was self-absorbed and a terrible housekeeper? Theres a good chance your comments could come back to bite you. Many sep-arating couples consider reconciliation. Your negative comments could have a damaging impact, and cause resentment. Even if you have been given the green light to proceed as you wish, you may feel awkward, believing you dont know the right words to say; or you might say the wrong thing, making things worse for everyone involved. You may become so intimidated by tough topics that you avoid the conversations at all costs. What you may not realize is that you dont have to know specifically what to say. Reaching out is a statement of caring and support at a difficult time. All that matters is giv-ing your loved one a hug and letting them know that you have valued the relation-ship, even if none of you knows what lies ahead.

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.Jeannette Showalter, CFA & LICENSED COMMODITIES BROKER BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF OCT. 27-NOV. 2, 2011 A15 Pointing to a law encouraging more nuclear power, state regulators agreed to allow Florida Power & Light and Progress Energy Florida to collect about $282 million from customers next year for nuclear projects. The state Public Service Commission approved $196 million in nuclear costs for FPL. FPL will use $171.8 million for upgrading two existing nuclear plants in St. Lucie and Miami-Dade counties, with the rest of the money earmarked for a project to build two reactors in Miami-Dade, according to a PSC staff document. The commission approved $86 million for Progress „ $55 million less than what Progress requested. PSC Chairman Art Graham pointed to economic problems facing many consumers in reducing the Progress amount. I think anything we can do to minimize the impact today is a good thing,  Mr. Graham said. Almost all of the Progress money will go toward a project to build two reac-tors in Levy County. Allowing the companies to collect the money, however, is a controversial issue. While customers pay toward nuclear projects now, the companies will not start generating electricity from new reactors for another decade „ and are not guaranteed to ever build them. The Legislature in 2006 approved a law that allows utilities to collect money far in advance of nuclear projects being completed. The PSC pointed to that law, which is aimed at encouraging utilities to tackle multibillion-dollar projects to add nuclear energy. The companies are following what the intent of that statute was, and we as the commission are implementing the statute as was (required) by the Legisla-ture,Ž said Commissioner Ronald Brise, a former state House member from North Miami. But the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which took part in the case, issued a statement blasting the PSC decisions. It is a sad day for Florida ratepayers wallets when the Public Service Com-mission keeps approving millions of dollars for Progress Energy and FPL on nuclear projects that will likely never be built, said Stephen A. Smith, the orga-nizations executive director. Its like free money for the utilities „ talk up a project, sell the idea to the Legislature and PSC, delay it multiple times and keep vacuuming up ratepayers hard-earned dollars. Nuclear project costs are only a small part of utility customers overall elec-tric bills, which also include base rates and such expenses as power-plant fuel. The PSC next month is scheduled to take up fuel costs. When all the costs are factored in, Public Counsel J.R. Kelly said he expects to see increases in FPL and Progress customer bills in 2012. Kellys office represents consumers in utility issues. The nuclear costs change year by year, depending on what types of work the utilities are doing on the projects. FPL residential customers who use 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month will pay about $2.20 in nuclear costs next year, up from the current 33 cents. Progress customers, meanwhile, will actually see the amount they pay each month for nuclear projects reduced. This year, a resident who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours pays $5.53 a month „ which will go down to about $2.93 in 2012. The utilities contend that adding nuclear power will ultimately save money for consumers. That is because such projects will reduce the long-term reliance on buying coal and natural gas to fuel power plants. The PSC this summer held hearings on the nuclear costs requested by FPL and Progress. It approved an amount on Oct. 24 that was almost identical to what FPL requested, differing by only a few thousand dollars, according to the commission staff document. But Mr. Kellys office argued successfully that Progress should get its $141 million request reduced by $55 mil-lion. The decision stemmed from an earlier plan to spread out Levy nuclear costs that could have hit customers in 2010. Under that plan, Progress was expected to collect about $60 million a year over a five-year period. Progress, however, proposed collecting $115 million of those costs in 2012, effectively speeding up the repayment. But commissioners decided Monday to continue with Progress collecting $60 million next year. A potential downside of the decision is that Progress will wrack up financing costs for a longer period of time. But Mr. Kelly said it was important to try to hold down customer bills in 2012. In todays hard economic times, we do believe its better to put off some of the expenses for the future and do what we can today for the ratepayers, Mr. Kelly said. Q FPL may collect from electric customers for upgrades to nuclear plants, regulators sayBY JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of Florida Floridas jobless rate in September fell to 10.6 percent, a 0.1 percentage point drop from August. Palm Beach Countys rate for September was 10.9 percent „ down 0.2 percentage points from the August 2011 rate of 11.1 percent „ and down 1.3 percentage points from the September 2010 rate of 12.2 percent. The states jobless rate was 1.1 percent lower than the 11.7 percent figure posted a year ago. The national unemployment rate in September was 9.1 percent. Gov. Rick Scott said the best news was the fact that private sector employ-ment grew by 23,300 jobs in September, bringing to 110,300 the number of pri-vate sector jobs created since January. Cuts in government employment bring the net gain for the year to 92,400. Were bucking the national trend,Ž Gov. Scott said. Were creating jobs and our unemployment rate is coming down.Ž Job growth over the year has been fueled by increases in tourism and health related services. A year after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill shut down the Panhandle summer tourist season and hurt destinations across the state, the sector gained 58,500 jobs, a 6.4-percent increase. Health care and private education sectors also showed strong year-to-year gains, rising 3.1 percent in Septem-ber, an increase of 33,100 jobs. Monroe County had the states lowest unemployment rate at 6.7 percent. It was followed by Liberty County (6.9 percent), Walton County (7.1 percent), Okaloosa County (7.3 percent), and Franklin County (7.8 percent). Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate for September at 17.6 percent. It was followed by Flagler County (14.6 per-cent), Indian River County (13.7 percent), Hernan-do County (13.5 percent), and St. Lucie County (13.4 percent). In all, 41 Florida counties had double-digit unemployment rates in September. Q Florida, Palm Beach unemployment dips in SeptemberTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDAElectrical charge

It has also changed how we go about post…academic learning. Have a question? Want an answer? Just go to the net and find experts to give an answerƒ medical, art, politics, sports, etc. Even Internet financial experts are waiting to be discovered by you. And theyre waiting to discover your money. Heres a bit of wisdom being circulated on the Internet: Be carefulƒ as the Internet has all sorts of newfound experts who dont know much about which they write!Ž „ Abraham LincolnAlthough the quote is obviously a fabrication, a joke now circulating through thousands of e-mails, its sentiment holds much merit. So this weeks column takes a cursory look at investment newsletters, e-mails, columns and the like; it broadly cat-egorizes their content and intent, and maybe helps you as an investor. There are big firms, smaller firms and independents. And out of all those dif-ferences arise some different forms of writing and marketing. It makes intuitive sense that larger firms will have a great deal of control over the writings, columns, advertise-ments, e-mails and Internet content of their multitudinous representatives. So when you, as a client or prospective investor, get a glossy letter from such a firm with your advisers picture on it, you should be questioning whether the contents were the original thoughts of the person sending it. Sometimes, the firm wrote it. The fact that the firm wrote it does not diminish the quality of its content nor relegates your rep-resentative to the category of incom-petent. No, it just means that you now have information that has been sani-tized by the legal department and can be released by the branches. You know nothing more about the unique invest-ment thinking and abilities of your per-sonal representative. And not all are robots or promoters; many are very skilled professionals. Often the writing of the big firms addresses 401(k)s, Roths, rollovers etc.; these are technical subjects that do not have a specific time expiration (i.e. the writing can be used for a long time); offer expertise; and engender trust. Also, the aforementioned topics focus on accounts where a change of manag-er/custodian might be imminent. These are all good for an investment advis-er wanting to garner new clients. Just remember that writing about technical/legal aspects of retirement accounts has nothing to do with successful investing. And this is where some of the large, no-frills firms have really shined: low commissions, a wealth of technical information at your disposal, no broker hounding you but a professional read-ily available to answer your questions. With these firms, you are often getting the expertise for free and then, option-ally, creating a relationship. With some larger firms, you are invited into a relationship and then, given the expert information. And this is my impression of the differences. Now, as to the writing of the smaller firms. Because compliance and legal reviews are tightenedŽ in small firms, these representatives can actually be much timelier in their writing and have liberty to offer some personal invest-ment expectations, though obviously couched in legal disclosures. This type of free-form writing can give insights into the investment soul of the adviser. There is much less (or no) approval process behind the writing of inde-pendents. Oft times, they have a blog, send out massive e-mails, and, if they can really string sentences together, they write an article and it is posted on their own or a third partys investment website. Many times the writer is paying to have the column posted or has paid someone to find a web home. (So when the adviser says they write for such and such, they actually might be paying the publisher.) Such disclosure might leave a very different impression with the prospective client. There is thought to be less rogue writing in a traditional print column as, besides any firms compliance approvals, there is an editor riding herd over con-tent and expression. Sure, the newspaper/magazine might enjoy controversyƒ but within the context of responsible writing.In summary, try to frame the financial writing as you are reading it. If it arous-es lots of emotions, then it might be more promotional than investment wor-thy. Do not translate all good writing/speaking/thinking (or for that matter, designations, degrees, titles and nobil-ity, fancy offices, etc.) into de facto great investing capabilities. My experience is that people who are good investors and traders are strict in employment of their methodologies; they stick to their knitting; they cut losses short and let profits run. And not many of them are great writers or speakers. Nor are they dashing in appearance, they often lack the look and feel of a pitch man as, in their mind, they are investment professionals and not promoters. There is wisdom in having several advisers, both generalists and special-ists, since not all generalists think alike and some areas of investing require spe-cialists. Get diversity of opinion. It is too important to do otherwise. Q „ Jeannette Rohn Showalter, CFA, can be reached at 239-444-5633, ext. 1092. E-mail showalter@ww fsyst to receive mid-week market commentaries.

In 21 Southeastern Florida towns between North Palm Beach, Jupiter and Stuart, Waterfront Properties offers properties from $250,000 to more than $50 million. Q Waterfront’s Thomson named best in Luxury Real Estate THOMSONSales of existing homes in Palm Beach County rose 12 percent in September from the previous month and 34 percent from the same time last year. Statewide, sales of single-family homes were down 7 percent from August, but jumped 10 percent compared to September 2011. Fifteen of Floridas 19 metropolitan statistical areas reported higher existing home sales in September; 11 MSAs had higher existing condo sales, according to data released by Florida Realtors. Further buoying Realtor hopes was a continued stability in median prices. Despite a 1 percent dip to $133,900, median price has risen consistently since the first of the year. One of the reasons for this is stabilization in the distressed property market,Ž said Flori-da Realtors Chief Economist John Tucil-lo. This is not a problem thats going away, but theres a degree of certainty that is helping the market.Ž Nationally, home sales in September were up 11.3 percent from September 2010. Sales in the South were up 10.5 percent year-to-year, according to the National Associa-tion of Realtors. Q Home sales continue uptick

W e were so concerned and worried about selling our home during the market slump, plus we had listed our home previously with other realtors and had very little “show time” during those listing periods. So when we decided to try one more realtor to sell our home, we were lucky to hire Dawn Malloy. Dawn not only competitively marketed our home in order to get the most coverage, but she also was extremely persistent and professional during all of our showings. Her goal was to not just list our home, but to sell our home! I feel like there are too many “listers” and not enough “sellers”… but Dawn is de nitely a seller and puts the client rst! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to have had Dawn as our selling agent… she was able to sell our home in such a short time—AMAZING!” – The Blasi Family Need to sell your home in the next 90 days?

Theres a kind of surreal goofi-ness about the show,Ž says the shows director, Peter Amster. The premise is basically four actors who have more heart than brains decide to do a stage version of the movie of The 39 Steps with no resources at all and see if they can make it fly. And when they do make it fly its astonishing and when they dont make it fly its hysterical.Ž The show has a cast of four, who create their show within a show on a bare stage.

I can t help but pass it along, the way you pass along spoiled milk after taking a sip. This is terrible,Ž you say. Try it.ŽA man was hiking with his wife in the mountain range north of Bucharest. They met other hikers along the trail and split into two parties, both groups headed for a hostel where they would spend the night. They took divergent paths so that the man and his wife sepa-rated, but when the husband arrived at the inn he found the other hikers there without his wife. The sun had set behind the mountains and the light was already draining from the day. The husband doubled back, following the path the second group had walked earlier, until he found his wifes backpack beside the road. Her shoes were there, too, alongside scat-tered pages from their guidebook. He called her name. From the woods, she shouted back. Dont come any closer,Ž she said. Go find a gun.Ž The man peered through the growing twilight and saw his wife squared off against a bear. He ran back to the hostel and begged the owner for a gun. The owner refused but called the local hunting party. The man ran back to his wife. She was on the ground and the bear stood over her, moving his snout across her belly. She made small mewl-ing noises in the back of her throat. The hunting party arrived and fired a warning shot. The bear dashed into the woods. The man ran to his wife and checked her pulse, which was already fad-ing. They had arrived too late. She died that night, and he sat with her body at the hostel waiting for officials to arrive. For me, the story asks more questions than it answers. Why did they split up? How did the other hikers not know where she was? Why didnt he stay with his wife when he first saw the bear? Perplexed, I shared the story with a good friend. (This is terri-ble. Try it.Ž) We sipped cups of tea in an outdoor caf and I found myself shaken with the retelling. When I finished, she said, I like to think Im the kind of per-son who would run toward the bear.Ž I realized then what upset me most about the story: I like to think the same thing. Whats more, I want my partner to be that kind of person too. You never know what youll do in that kind of situation,Ž a man said when I told him the story recently. We sat facing each other over dinner while I quietly evalu-ated his potential. He was rugged and outdoorsy, which I liked, but also arty and sort of faux-deep, which I didnt. I mean, you think youd run toward the bear,Ž he said, but you just dont know.Ž I nodded sympathetically and made low moaning noises as if I understood and, yes, agreed. But the truth is I was already crossing him off my list. This is a non-negotiable quality. Before I get serious with a man, I need to know hell wrestle a bear for me.

PAGE 28 FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2011 LIGHTHOUSEFrom page 1Ms. Deits said in a statement. And we are so grateful to the management at Midtown for donating the space to us.Ž Midtown sees the Tequesta museum and art schools gallery as a magnet for visitors. Were interested in trying new ideas, and seeing how people react,Ž Belle Forino, marketing coordinator at Midtown, said in a prepared statement. We have open retail space in Mid-town, that with the help of the Light-house ArtCenter, were turning into an edgy, contemporary, pop-up style gal-lery. It feels like were bringing a little bit of New York and a little bit of Art Basel to Palm Beach Gardens.Ž The Lighthouse ArtCenter at Midtown is at 4763 PGA Blvd., Suite 300, Palm Beach Gardens. The gallery will host a grand opening 5:30-7:30 p.m. Oct. 27. After that, hours will be noon to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday and noon-5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit or call 746-3101. Q HITCHCOCKFrom page 1One of the four actors plays Richard Hanney, our hero, the Robert Donat role,Ž says Mr. Amster. We have one girl who plays three of the women, perhaps some more. And we have two guys, which are called Clown No. 1 and Clown No. 2, so quick change is part of the glee of this particular show.Ž Glee? Hitchcock?Its easy to forget the great director had quite a sense of humor, even if at times it was quite droll. Theres a story that on the first day when Madeleine Carroll and Robert Donat got together on the set they didnt know each other at all. Half of the play these two characters are hand-cuffed to each other,Ž Mr. Amster says. (Hitchcock) actually put handcuffs on them as they were about to rehearse a scene and then he pretended to lose the key for the rest of the day, which included bathroom breaks and stuff like that, and he figured hed let these actors figure out how to negotiate this and become perhaps closer and quicker friends than they would have otherwise. So, yes, he definitely had a sense of humor and I think that he would definitely appreciate what were doing here.Ž But no homework is necessary for audiences. The wonderful thing, though, audience does not have to see this movie to enjoy this play,Ž Mr. Amster says. There are some things you may know from the movie, even if youve never seen it. Take that scene in which Hitchcock cuts from the maids screaming to a train whistle? Well, thats here, in spades, except the maid has a somewhat hairy chest,Ž Mr. Amster says. Hence the farce.Well, in the best tradition of British drag,Ž he says, a smile on his face.New approachThis is Mr. Amsters fourth time directing the play and his first time directing at the Maltz. His home base is Sarasota. Its interesting because I have three new actors, and one actor who was not in the last production but was in the first two, so the chemistry is always changing. Its always coming fresh out of the box,Ž he says. Yeah, there are certain things that we have established. Theres a hat routine in the train sta-tion scene halfway through the first act which we polished to a fare-thee-well, so Im pretty much using the shtick that I developed there, here. Though every time, we have different actors and theyre different heights and stuff like that, so we have to come up with a slightly different plot scene with that.Ž Speaking of scenes, this production is noted for being rather spare. It does ask the audience to use its imagination to fill in the blanks,Ž Mr. Amster says. Theres one moment where we create a biplane out of a couple of pairs of ladders with a little fan and a couple of flashlights, and its such a surprisingly good illusion that the audience usually applauds it. But the audience is also applauding itself for allowing its imagination to synthe-size all of these disparate things into an object that seems to work.Ž But when those disparate things come together? The jokes almost take care of themselves,Ž he says. Mr. Amsters two stars agree, though they say making the jokes work is an art unto itself. They say that dying is easy and comedy is hard,Ž says Beth Hylton. I think thats true. Comedy is really hard, I think. Im on my fourth comedy this year and its amazing its so much fun. Its hard work, but its rewarding work. Its immediately rewarding in a way drama cant be. Our job is to make it look effortless.Ž Ms. Hylton plays Pamela, the woman who is handcuffed to Christian Peder-sens Hannay. But how many roles does she really have? Three, and maybe something else. I may surprise you,Ž she says. All of the cast has seen the film and will see it again as a group while in rehearsals, Ms. Hylton says. Seeing it in preparation for her roles surprised Ms. Hylton, who is based in New York and Washington, D.C. I think for me, what surprised me was that its a noir,Ž she says. Theres the element of danger very much pres-ent, but I was surprised by the humor that was already in the film. ƒ Hitch-cock knew what he was doing.Ž Mr. Pedersen, who lives in New York, agrees. The first time I saw it, I got the spy thriller, the noir and the story,Ž he says. And then after I got cast, I watched it again a few weeks ago, and thats when it really hit me how funny the movie is, especially once it really starts snow-balling and gets going. The second half, I found myself just laughing out loud. And I dont think I did that the first time I watched it. And Im look-ing forward to watching it again, even though I just saw it three weeks ago, to find some more clues.Ž What kind of clues?Good actors will steal stuff. Theres a lot of inspiration in watching the movie and taking what you can and making it your own,Ž Mr. Pedersen says.A bare stageAnd with that bare stage, they have plenty of opportunity to make things their own. What are the challenges?All,Ž says Mr. Pedersen, laughing. All challenges.Ž Is it like a pantomime?Its a dance, and were in the process of learning that dance. Everyone knows exactly what movement theyre doing whether its onstage or backstage getting everything back together,Ž he says. Working with Mr. Amster has helped the actors fine-tune the fun. Its what, as actors, we hope for, to work with a director like Peter,Ž Mr. Pedersen says. Being in a room with him is kind of like swimming in a glass of Cham-pagne,Ž says Ms. Hylton. Effervescent is definitely the word for him.Ž Yeah, being sure youre still floating and not working too hard, because this is about as difficult as it gets techni-cally, the work behind the show,Ž says Mr. Pedersen. Theres a significant amount of prep that goes into this kind of a performance.Ž In the end, that preparation will pay off for audiences, says Ms. Hylton. I think this will give them a little bit of everything. And its a full meal. Its not just pratfalls and zany and a laugh a minute,Ž she says. Its a love story,Ž interjects Mr. Pedersen. Theres a love story and theres mystery „ everything. You get a full meal,Ž Ms. Hylton says. Q >> “The 39 Steps” opens in previews Nov. 1. Opening night is Nov. 3, and runs through Nov. 13. It’s at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

He joins a group of other children on a wild train ride to the North Pole in what is ultimately a jour-ney of self-discovery and finding the true meaning behind the holidays. The performance is about an hour and 30 minutes long, including a 15-min-ute intermission. The production will feature special guest Jerry Opdenaker in the role of the trains conductor. Mr. Opdenaker was formally with Ballet Florida and now directs his own company, O Dance. The production is another collaboration between Michele Zehner and Maria Konrad, who is assistant director of the school and associated company. The two have paired in the past to create such productions as The Mixed NutŽ and Mary Poppins.Ž Its sweet and its fun,Ž said Ms. Zehner. I think this show is not only a great vehicle for our dancers to perform in, but a fantastic way to introduce the beauty and power of dance to younger audiences.Ž Tickets range from $15-$18 and are available by calling 627-9078. Q Start your holidays with a ride on The Polar ExpressJerry Opdenaker will be the special guest dancer in The Bell, an adaptation of The Polar Express at the Eissey Theater on Nov. 4-5.

But ask the Food Network star what her last meal would be, and the answer is a BLT. At first, it sounds like pretty basic fare. Then she explains it.It has to be made with the perfect bread, with enough mayonnaise that you taste it with every bite. Next, a perfectly ripe tomato with a touch of salt. And dont forget the good bacon. That perfect bread would be white and toasted, but it doesnt cut the roof of your mouth,Ž she said during an inter-view with food journalists while signing copies of her new cookbook during a book-signing stop at Williams Sonoma at The Gardens Mall. She had been on a tour to promote her new cookbook, Cook Like a Rock Star,Ž and said she wanted to emphasize the joy of cooking. You should feel like a rock star in your own kitchen,Ž she said between sips of prosecco while standing in the stores stockroom. She said her book was created to make the process of dining as fun as dinner.Ž Its about family time,Ž she said. Having children help prepare a meal teaches them about measuring and about math. It also is an opportunity for kids to learn about good food, Ms. Burrell said, adding she enjoys sharing the cooking with her nieces and nephews. Ms. Burrell, with her trademark wild tresses, seemed delighted by a line of fans that stretched through the store and wound its way around the perimeter of the mall. But before the fame, there was the food. She developed a passion for food and for cooking as a child, long before she made a name for herself as Mario Batalis sous chef on Iron Chef AmericaŽ or went on to host Secrets of a Restau-rant ChefŽ or co-host Worst Cooks in America.Ž After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, she spent a year in Italy, studying at the Italian Culinary Institute for foreigners and working at two restaurants. When she returned to the United States, Ms. Burrell was a sous chef at Felidia Restaurant, working with the great Lidia Bastianich. Lidia was my favorite mentor,Ž she said. Lidia was a mentor in my forma-tive years as a cook and Mario, my years as a chef.Ž Jobs at Savoy and New Yorks Centro Vinoteca followed. She taught for three years at the Institute of Culinary Education, then returned to the restaurant business, as executive chef at Lumi Restaurant. When she took a job with Italian Wine Merchants, the job included salumi pro-duction and traveling to events with Mr. Batali. And when he became an Iron Chef, he tapped Ms. Burrell to be his sous chef. That much is history.Ms. Burrells job takes her on the road much of the year. She said taping SecretsŽ takes about three weeks, and Worst CooksŽ takes about five. That leaves her little time to cook for herself. And her New York single girlsŽ refrigerator reflects that. No meats, no fish, no cheese, no food. Just a Britta water filter and condi-ments. Her idea of an adult treat?Prosecco on ice.Its just one more way for a Food Network star to chill.
