561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS WHY EXPERIENCE MATTERS IN HEART CARE. The more heart emergencies that a team handles „ the more angioplasties and heart surgeries it performs „ the better the outcomes. The better the results. This is a fact. Experience is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done.The way we do it. FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 Let me point out what you already know: the fun has started. Once again its poli-tics not-as-usual, beginning now, only 12 months shy of the Great American Contest for President (detailed on target maps of the United States as the GACP). Its the American Parade. Its the Bully Circus. Its that momentous moment in our national journey when everything becomes as clear as our own Warm Mineral Springs, or as muddy as the mighty Mississippi „ take your pick. I hear frequently that people are tiredŽ of it all. That people are sickŽ of political contests, of mean-spirited verbal sparring or bloody, knock-down-drag-out personal vendettas staged in public view between, say, Republicans and Democrats. How could that be? Could Americans be losing their sense of humor? Keep in mind as we go forward that this ridiculous political season „ as all political seasons have always been ridiculous „ is actually our greatest strength, our secret and greatest weapon. Before the world, from Palm Beach Gardens to Punkin Center, Kansas, to Port Hope, Alaska, we will now take up the Great American Contest for President. We will now celebrate the eccentric, the odd-ball, the ignorant, the belligerent, the short-sighted or the downright stupid, and to hell with the issues.Ž This is pure, uncut comedy.Since I doubt you are fully prepared, Ill bring you up to speed with a few remind-ers from our glorious past „ from that charming gallery of rubes, boors, bump-kins, clodhoppers, dolts, hayseeds, hicks, hillbillies, jakes and yokels (I got all that from a thesaurus) that have dominated our political landscape in the past, either as elected leaders or as appointed leaders or self-appointed apologists. Take, for example, the unparalleled Sarah Palin, who tweeted in July of last year the following: Ground Zero Mosque support-ers: doesnt it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiateŽ (refudiate is not a word). Remember Marion Barry, the one-time mayor of Washington D.C., who was nailed snorting cocaine with a prostitute in a sting operation? What right does Congress have to go around making laws just because they deem it necessary?Ž he asked. Good question.Or how about conservative apologist Ann Coulter, describing the widows of 9/11 victims after theyd criticized the Bush administration? These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands death so much.Ž Or Sen. Bob Packwood (R-Ore.), who tried to describe his diaries, in which he recorded sexual affairs with staffers, this way? A number of things that I put in were inaccurate, and some of them simply werent true ƒ On occasion, I discovered I would recount conversations that simply didnt happen.Ž Isnt this fun? Keep reading, and soon your despair „ your inability to see any-thing at all funny about the American politi-cal process „ will be dispelled like the thick scent of cheap perfume in the narrow corridors of an hourly rate motel after a hurricane washes it away. Remember Rush Limbaugh? Of course you do. Not only is he a conservative politi-cal pundit and former drug addict, but he was chosen to judge the 2010 Miss America Pageant at Fox News Fox & Friends,Ž in February last year. He vehemently denied being a sexist. Im a huge supporter of women. What Im not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the womens movement „ especially when walking behind it.Ž Its those damn liberals, in other words, the ones who dont like walking behind women and cant even admit to liking wom-ens behinds, whether walking behind or running away from them. Liberals like former Democratic Senator and one-time presidential candidate John Edwards. Can I explain to you what happened?Ž he said, while admitting that he cheated on his wife. First of all, it happened during a period after she was in remission from cancer.Ž If youre starting to get the drift, good. This is like listening to jazz „ pay atten-tion, and soon youll get it. You might even smile. I suggest listening carefully to the mainstreamers in the coming year, to the big guns. Theyre no smarter than those of the past, so you can safely bet youll be hearing some sizzle. Take Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney, for example „ two of the most frightening goofballs ever to put their hands on the throttle of our national destiny. We do know of certain knowledge that (Osama Bin Laden) is either in Afghanistan, or in some other country, or dead,Ž Mr. Rumsfeld, then secretary of defense, told the American people in 2003. In another fine example of nutcase sparklers, Rummy added, Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war.Ž Not to be outdone, Mr. Cheney, then vice president, intoned about the invasion of Iraq that, We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.Ž By the time the liberals got through with him, he probably felt that same way Ann Coulter did, when she said, We need to execute people like (John Walker Lindh) in order to physically intimidate liberals.Ž Yep, thatll do it, Ann. But no preparation for the upcoming political parade would be complete without remembering our own U.S. Representative and now Senate hopeful, Connie Mack IV, or his direct political ancestors and boy-hood heroes, Dan Quayle and George W. Bush. Thank you. Thank you. Im going to take that back to Washington,Ž Rep. Mack replied at a Fort Myers Town Hall meeting in March, to a veteran who said he didnt want a handout. Considering the intellectual muscle of Macks forbears „ men who never flinched from banging the drum in the American parade „ maybe things really have gotten better. Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child,Ž Dan Quayle once said. But he cant be outstripped by Baby Boomer and Yale alumnus George W. Bush. Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,Ž noted President Bush. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people „ and neither do we.Ž Thats the fact, Jack.

PAGE 4 FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 OPINION The winds of change are blowing across the globe. What triggers such change, and when it will strike, is something that no one can predict. Last Jan. 18, a courageous young woman in Egypt took a dangerous step. Asmaa Mahfouz was 25 years old, part of the April 6 Youth Movement, with thousands of young people engaging online in debate on the future of their country. They formed in 2008 to dem-onstrate solidarity with workers in the industrial city of Mahalla, Egypt. Then, in December 2010, a young man in Tunisia, Mohamed Bouazizi, set himself on fire to protest the frustra-tion of a generation. His death sparked the uprising in Tunisia that toppled the long-reigning dictator President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Similar acts of protest spread to Egypt, where at least four men attempted self-immolation. One, Ahmed Hashem el-Sayed of Alexan-dria, died. Asmaa Mahfouz was out-raged and posted a video online, star-ing directly into the camera, her head covered, but not her face. She identi-fied herself and called for people to join her on Jan. 25 in Tahrir Square. She said (translated from Arabic): Im making this video to give you one simple message: We want to go down to Tahrir Square on January 25th. If we still have honor and want to live in dignity on this land, we have to go down on January 25th. Well go down and demand our rights, our fundamental human rights. ... I wont even talk about any political rights. We just want our human rights and nothing else. This entire government is corrupt „ a corrupt president and a corrupt security force. These self-immolators were not afraid of death but were afraid of security forces. Can you imagine that?Ž Nine months later, Asmaa Mahfouz was giving a teach-in at Occupy Wall Street. Standing on steps above the crowd Monday night, she had a huge smile on her face as she looked out on a sea of faces. After she finished, I asked her what gave her strength. She answered with characteristic humil-ity, speaking English: I cant believe it when I saw a million people join in the Tahrir Square. Im not more brave, because I saw my colleagues, Egyp-tian, were going towards the police-men, when they just pushing us, and they died for all of us. So they are the one who are really brave and really strong. ... I saw people, really, died in front of me, because they were protecting me and protecting others. So, they were the most brave, bravest men.Ž I asked how it felt to be in the United States, which had for so long supported the Mubarak regime in Egypt. She replied: While they giv-ing money and power and support to Mubarak regime, our people, Egyptian people, can success against all of this, against the U.S. power. So, the power to the people, not for the U.S. bullets or bombs or money or anything. The power to the people. So that I am here to be in solidarity and support the Wall Street Occupy protesters, to say them the power to the people, and to keep it on and on, and they will suc-cess in the end.Ž The Egyptian revolution has not been without consequences for her. Last August, she was arrested by the Egyptian military. As my colleague Sharif Abdel Kouddous reported from Cairo, Asmaa sent two controversial tweets that prompted the arrest by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, the military government that has ruled Egypt since Mubaraks fall. Her arrest provoked a worldwide response, with groups ranging from the Muslim Brotherhood to Amnesty International condemning it. She was released, but, as Sharif noted at the time, Asmaa was only one of 12,000 civilians arrested since the revolu-tion. The arrests are happening here in the U.S. now, at many of the protest sites across the country. As Asmaa was preparing to head back to Egypt, hundreds of riot police descended on Occupy Oakland, firing beanbag rounds and tear gas. The Univer-sity of New Mexico is threatening to evict the encampment there, which is called (Un)occupy AlbuquerqueŽ to highlight that the land there is occu-pied native land. Asmaa Mahfouz is running for a seat in the Egyptian Parliament, and maybe someday, she says, the presi-dency. When I asked her what she had to say to President Barack Obama, who had given his speech to the Mus-lim world in Cairo, she replied: You promised the people that you are the change and yes, we can. So we are here from the Wall Street Occupy, and we are saying the same word: yes, we can. We can make the freedom, and we can get our freedom, even if its from you.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback.Globalizing dissent, from Tahrir Square to Liberty PlazaIt might have been Mitt Romneys most revealing moment in all the Republican debates. Badgered by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who was con-tinually interrupting him, Romney appealed to CNN moderator Ander-son Cooper to reassert the rules of the debate: Anderson?Ž That one-word plaint could stand for all of Romneys straight-arrow-ness. It is a virtue and a curse. Scan-dalŽ and RomneyŽ are two words you expect never to have to see in a sentence together. Hes every bit as upstanding as you would expect from a former Mormon bishop, a father of five and grandfather of 16. Romney is a familiar type. Weve all known the guy who sits in the front of the classroom and raises his hand to answer every question. We might admire him, or envy him, but we probably dont like him. It is almost impossible to exaggerate the technical proficiency Romney has exhibited during the debates. There is no question for which he doesnt have a ready, sometimes sophisti-cated answer. Whenever challenged „ especially by Perry „ he almost always bests his opponent. Hes like a boxer with a couple of extra inches on his reach compared with everyone else. Even when another candidate is talking, hes perfected a look of patient, benign attentiveness. Whats missing, as usual with Romney, is a sense of warmth and heartfelt conviction. When Bill Clinton was confronted by someone with a sym-pathetic story, his reflex was to go in for a hug. Romneys reflex is to go in for a crisp explanation of whatever is his relevant policy position, delivered smoothly and cogently, if distantly. Its as if he sees people as inputs into his hard drive from which he reli-ably downloads the most appropriate intellectual output.Romney talks of how he loves data, and his ability to master it is one of his foremost strengths. Data doesnt move people, though. The difference between Herman Cain, who has gener-ated spontaneous excitement, and Mitt Romney is captured in their economic plans. Cains depends on three simple numbers, 999, that have captured the imagination of a slice of the Republican electorate. In what he admits is almost a self-parody, Romney has a 59-point plan that hasnt made an impression on anyone. Cains fearlessly bold plan is badly flawed and would almost cer-tainly blow up in a general election. Romneys plan is carefully crafted for maximum survivability.Romney has a likability and trust gap. Its one reason hes been near the top of the field all year yet has never opened up the kind of lead tradition-ally associated with front-runners. If Republican voters conclude theres no one else in the field who is plausible as president or a general-election can-didate, Romney will win, but it will be an act of calculation rather than pas-sion. A former management consul-tant who couldnt rabble-rouse if he wanted to, Romney would be a most unusual vessel for a party overflowing with populist enthusiasms. Romney can impress, but he doesnt naturally inspire or connect. That leaves an opening for others, even as he executes nearly flawlessly.

MICHAEL PAPA, Chiropractor/Clinic Director FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 A5 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA parade in West Palm Beach and services in Palm Beach Gardens and North Palm Beach are among the observances set for Veterans Day. President Woodrow Wilson began the tradition of Veterans Day when he established Armistice Day in 1918, to remember the signing of the Armistice, or Peace Treaty, that ended World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. After World War II and the Korean War, Alfred King, a shoe salesman from Emporia, Kan., lobbied the government to change Armistice Day to Veterans Day so all mili-tary veterans could be hon-ored. Congress passed the law in 1954. Though Vet-erans Day was observed on Mondays from 1971 to 1977, in accordance with the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, veterans objected and in 1978, it was changed back to Nov. 11. It is a federal, state and local holiday; government offices will be closed and no mail deliv-ered. The fourth annual Veterans Day parade sponsored by the Palm Beach Veterans Committee will be held at 11 a.m. on Veterans Day in downtown West Palm. It will feature veterans groups, color guards, high school JROTC programs and community, civic and corporate groups. The parade will start at Sapodilla Street on Clematis Street and continue east to Centennial Square. A number of the organizations will have informa-tional booths set up in the park after the parade, along with food vendors. The Palm Beach County Veterans Committee is comprised of volunteers from local veterans organizations and community activists. It receives no grants or funds from any government agency and relies entirely on private donations to host the parade, as well as an annual Memorial Day ceremony. For more information on participating in the parade contact Bern Ryan at 279-1380, ext. 20. To make a tax-deductible donation to help defray the costs of the parade, call Charlotte Rebillard at 686-7262 or Committee Pat Rielly at 236-795 2. In the Gardens, a service and concert will be hosted by the City of Palm Beach Gardens to honor all military members „ past, present and future. The full cadre of the Palm Beach Gardens police and fire honor guards will present the colors at 11 a.m., followed by an outdoor concert featuring The Palm Beach Gardens Concert Band under the direction of Randy Sonntag. The event will be held at Veterans Plaza at the citys municipal complex, 10500 N. Military Trail. The annual Veterans Day celebration in North Palm Beach will be at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, in Osborn Park, 715 Prosperity Farms Road. Present will be members of the North Palm public safety staffs, military personnel, village council members and other guests. At Palm Beach State College in the Gardens, a rock-concert Veterans Day celebration will be held from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The U.S. Navy band PRIDE will perform in the Amphithe-atre and there will also be free food, military displays, video games and other activities. At the Benjamin School, U.S. Congressman Tom Rooney will speak at the annual Veterans Day commemoration at the school from 2:15 p.m.-2:55 p.m.; it will include a rifle drill demonstra-tion and performances by the schools band, chorus and dance ensemble will perform. In Juno Beach, the town is sponsoring a drive to collect items for dis-abled and homeless veterans. Items may be dropped off at the Juno Beach Town Center, 340 Ocean Drive, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 7 through Nov. 10; or at Oceanview Methodist Church office, 701 Ocean Drive, from 8:30 a.m.-12:15 and 1:15-4 p.m., Nov. 7 through Nov. 11.

(His wife abandoned the mar-riage when he made the name change official; evidently, being Mrs. PenguinŽ was not what she had signed up for.) Mr. Pingouin started a penguin-item museum that ultimately totaled 3,500 items, and he created a hooded, full-body black-and-white penguin outfit that, according to a September Reuters dispatch, he wears daily in his waddles around his Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek. Q Urban farmingŽ is growing more popular among cit y -dwelling progressives committed to eating local foods, but that usually involves gardens in backyards. For Robert McMinn and Jules Corkery, it means raising two chick-ens in their one-bedroom apartment in New York City „ for fresh eggs. I dont think its the ideal situation,Ž Mr. McMinn told the New York Daily News in October. However, he said, the hens are cute. Theyre fun to (watch) run around. Theyre excited when we come home.Ž On the other hand, he said, (T)hey poop everywhere.Ž Q Q T hough South Korean children sc ore among the highest in the world on standardized reading and math tests, their success comes at a price, accord-ing to an October Time magazine dispatch. They supposedly suffer educa-tional masochismŽ „ punishing them-selves by overstudy, especially in high school preparing for university admis-sions tests. Earlier this year, to curb the masochism,Ž the government began enforcing a 10 p.m. curfew on coaching-school activities, and in Seoul, a six-man team conducts nightly after-hours raids on classes that run late-night sessions behind sh utter ed windows. Q In Japan, a dental defectŽ „ slightly crooked canine teeth „ makes young women more fetching, even adorable,Ž say many men. Women with the yaebaŽ look have canines pushed slightly for-ward by the molars behind them so that the canines develop a fang-like appear-ance. One dental salon, the Plaisir, in Tokyo, offers fixtures that replicate the look among straight-toothed women. Q Q P olls report that as many as 57 per cent of Russians noticeŽ signs of a cultŽ surrounding Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, according to a Septem-ber Spiegel Online dispatch, and a chief cult leader is Mother Fotina,Ž 62, who has a following of thousands among Rus-sian Orthodox practitioners and believes herself to be the reincarnation of Joan of Arc and Putin to be St. Paul. God,Ž she said, has appointed Putin to Russia to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ.Ž Mother Fotina was a convicted embez-zler in the 1990s, and critics suspect her devotion to Putin is a ruse to deflect lawenforcement attention. Q Sheriffs deputies in Bergholz, Ohio, arrested three Amish men in October and charged them in incidents in which other Amish men and women had their homes invaded and their hair (and mens beards) cut off „ suppos-edly grave insults. The three are part of an 18-family breakaway sect of Amish who were said to be exacting revenge upon mainstream Amish for insuffi-ciently pious behavior. The bishopŽ of the breakaways, Sam Mullet, 65, denied the arrestees were acting under his authority. Q Lead story Sustainable and stinky Inscrutable Asians Latest religious messages Recurring themesSoon, it might be absolutely impossible to get hurt in Britain „ because of stringent health and safety rules. St. Marys Church in Cottingham announced it would go without an over-head light because government rules require that it rig scaffolding to change the light bulb in its 30-foot-high ceiling. And following the August riots in Lon-don, hundreds of volunteers took to the streets to speed the cleanup process, but police turned them away, fearful workers lacked the sense to avoid cut-ting themselves on the debris. Q Q A judg e in Nice, France, ruled in Sept ember that Article 215 of the French civil code in fact requires that husband and wife have sex. A husband identified only as Jean-Louis B. had evidently lost interest years earlier, and his wife was granted a divorce. Emboldened by her victory, she then filed a monetary claim against the husband for the 21-year-long lack of sex, and the judge awarded her 10,000 euros (about $13,710). Q It might well be excessive forceŽ if a sheriffs deputy beats and pepper-sprays a motorist who had been stopped only because the deputy saw the motor-ist without a fastened seatbelt. A dis-trict court judge had concluded that the force was surely justified, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said in August that excessive-ness of force was for a jury to evaluate. (The deputys explanation: The motor-ist, waiting for the deputy to finish his report, was sitting on a curb eating a bowl of broccoli, and the deputy had to beat him down, he said, out of fear that the motorist would throw the broccoli at him and then attack him.)

PAGE 8 FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 small plates and pours from area res-taurants and wine donors, returns for a second year at the Downtown location, with new restaurants involved and several new sponsors. Its gotten bigger each year,Ž said Bill Decker, event director. Were ex-pecting even more people this year, and more than 30 restaurants have signed up. The community really gets behind the Big Heart Brigade events.Ž The Big Heart Brigade, an area charity, begun in Palm Beach and Martin counties, is gearing up to feed close to 100,000 people on Thanksgiving Day, according to Pete Bergel, president of the nonpro“ t. Mr. Bergel, “ re chief for Palm Beach Gardens, said the event is their most important fundraiser „ they are hop-ing to raise $50,000 to $70,000 to offset the cost of the turkey dinners they provide to the community. We have individual donors who step up every year, but this event really brings in needed funds,Ž he said. Last year, the group distributed more than 75,000 turkey dinners. At the taste, feeding thousands of diners „ even small plates as the festival showcases „ is no easy feat. Experienced chefs familiar with the event are behind it. It becomes something more of a logistics thing than a chef showcase,Ž said Charlie Soo, chef-owner of Talay Thai in Palm Beach Gardens. Getting the food in, setting up and being able to keep up with the crowds „ you have to have something fairly easy to serve and easy for the diner to eat, too,Ž he said. He participates in several charity events in the community and like many, deciding what to serve has to do with how well the food transports, holds up, if he has the staff to handle serving the crowds, and whether it represents his menu. Im thinking of doing Thai chicken balls,Ž the chef said, but Americans arent used to them, and they sound weird. Theyre like a chicken meatball. I just dont know yet how well theyll go over.Ž Theyd be easy to serve, however and may make the cut, he said. A chicken Thai basil that he served recently at the Latin American Festival in Midtown was too labor intensive and didnt work as planned. I dont want to try that again, especially for this many people. Its a very big crowd.Ž But its a win-win for the community and restaurateur „ so many sign on for the controlled chaos,Ž as some put it.Giving back to the communityMichial Rachaner, managing partner of Brio Tuscan Grill in Palm Beach Gardens, says its about giving back to the community, and building relation-ships that bene“ t everyone. He likes this event. The people who put on the Taste of Downtown are the same people who put on the Honda Classic „ they single-handedly do a lot of great things in the community. It works great on karma „ for business and for the com-munity,Ž he said. Brio donates to the silent auction for the taste „ dinner for 10 people, worth $500. That brings people into the res-taurant to see what we can do.Ž Brio staff will be bringing items from the restaurant menu and from their ca-tering menus „ all popular foods that are manageable for the outside tables and cha“ ng dishes required at tasting events. Well do our pasta a la vodka, a variety of bruschettas and the Brio chopped salad from the restaurant menu. From the catering menu, well have the Gorgonzola-crusted grape truf” es „ theyre very popular.Ž Cheese and crushed nuts wrap fresh fat grapes, and theyre served as small pass-arounds, along with several other small “ nger foods. Popular dishes that are safely ensconced on menus and represent the cuisines are no-brainers for some res-taurants. BB Kings Blues Club in West Palm Beach is bringing a tried-and-true favorite, Southern-style barbecued pulled pork, along with cornbread. Its been on their menu since the startup „ and barbecue is part of their overall theme of blues and barbecue. Jupiter Island Grill in Jupiter will hand out small plates of jumping shrimp, with a sweet chili sauce for dipping, and basmati rice alongside. Nordstroms Chef Richard Rodriguez plans to bring at least four gallons of Caf Bistros Crab bisque, and for des-sert, the white chocolate bread pudding off the menu. Not everyone goes to every station, and a lot of them arent doing the sweets. I think there are plenty of desserts offered, so well just bring one big pan of the bread pudding,Ž he said. Both are simple to serve and leave time for him to interact with guests and let them know about the Caf on the upper ” oor of the department store in Palm Beach Gardens. A lot of people dont know were here,Ž he said, but once they “ nd us, they come back for our food.Ž For the second year, the Pelican Caf in Lake Park will provide samples of their popular sour cream donuts, to showcase their breakfast service, and will serve as their entree a sample of the house Rigatoni Bolognese. Rooneys Pub and the All-In sports bar, along with the Terrace at the West Palm Beach Kennel Club, showcase their Irish roots and sports bar themes with shepherds pie, penne a la vodka, and Rooneys red chili. Figs in Palm Beach Gardens is serving favorites from their menu as well. Manager Caroline Mantel said the roasted tomato and spinach soup and white chocolate bread pudding have been on their menu since its incep-tion. We could never take them off „ theyre customer favorites.Ž The Melting Pot in Palm Beach Gardens also goes with menu items. Dark and milk chocolate fondue with fresh strawberries for dipping is their offer-ing, according to manager Jason Jones. We have a wide variety of chocolate fondues on the menu,Ž he said.A “tease” to upcoming menuThe staff at Bistro Ten Zero One in West Palm Beachs Marriott will be showcasing fall items, the squash soup and as a dessert, poached pears with vanilla ice cream. Manager and food and beverage director Alex Cooley says its a teaseŽ to the restaurants upcoming menu and gives diners a taste of what they can expect seasonally as the menus change. Mr. Cooley likes these events „ Marriott is geared to cater off premises and the work involved isnt as stressful for his restaurant as for some single-owner places. Still, the food choices must be of the same quality as at the restaurant, and it has to be executable „ service at the station has to represent the service the diner will get at Bistro Ten Zero One, he said. Its also about the charity for all the restaurants „ all the foods and service are donated and all proceeds go to the Big Heart Brigade. Were giving away a lot of food and we want it to represent what we do at the restaurant,Ž he said. If you dont have the right staff or right station for the foods youre serving, your staff is going to be serving with their heads down, slinging food. You need to bring the right people who can talk about the food and engage the diner and win their business.Ž Other restaurants and markets scheduled to participate include 51 Supper Club, Cantina Laredo, III Forks, Blue“ re Grill at the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott, Tijuana Flats, Bone“ sh Grill, Cabo Flats, Caf Chardonnay, Cod & Capers Seafood, Costellos Trattoria, Giovannis Ristorante, Ha-vana, Ironwood Grill and iBar at PGA National, TooJays, Roxys Pub, Sloans Ice Cream, the Pita Grille, Prosecco Caf, Moes Southwest Grill, Kilwins Chocolates and Ice Cream, Marble Slab Creamery, Costco and Whole Foods Market. The restaurants wont be serving alcohol „ thats left to the wine and spirit donors, Southern Wine and Spir-its and Coastal Wines. Oenophiles can expect samples from domestic and international vineyards; among them are Kim Crawford, Wild Horse, Robert Mondavi, Simply Naked, Clos Du Bois, Septima, Voga, Josh Cellars, Kunde, Black Stallion, Ferrari Carano, Oyster Bay, Columbia, Chim-ney Rock, Francis Ford Coppola and Chalone Monterrey „ among dozens of others. Patron, Titos, Voli, Jim Beam and LChaim spirits will be poured. The taste has more than food „ there will be live music, a Lexus LoungeŽ and a spectaculr “ reworks desplay.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 A9 for suggestions, she expressed interest in working at the commissioners office, maybe even becoming a commissioner herself one day. Commissioner Marcus saw an open seat on the zoning board. She saw Mrs. Bakcsi as willing. She told the young woman, Since you want to be involved, heres a way to be involved, see where it takes you.Ž Her beginnings in the environmental control office took Commissioner Marcus to preserve 29,000 acres of environmentally sensitive land. She has approached her 27 years on the county commission thoughtfully, first thinking of her daughters, later thinking of her grandchildren, thinking how she could help them grow up in the same Palm Beach she remembers growing up in. As much as Commissioner Marcus saw trees and beaches, Mrs. Bakcsi sees vacant storefronts and foreclosed homes. Born and raised here, I remember things so differently,Ž she said. Maybe it was me just being nave as a kid, but it seems good people had good jobs and a good home, neighbors were friendly.Ž Mrs. Bakcsi would like to see things go back to the way they were, hence her calling to government. Its important my generation gets involved,Ž she said. A lot of people my age are not exposed to local govern-ment, not even government on the fed-eral level. They dont pay attention to whats going on around them, and thats kind of scary.Ž The youngest on the zoning board, Mrs. Bakcsi has met mixed reactions „ some encouraging, some apprehensive. One acquaintance, an older gentleman, asked her, what would she do when she was handed a 200-page report to pore over and reach a controversial deci-sion? She assured the man, I do know how to read.Ž Though naturally, shes ner-vous. She tells herself what she tells her friends, When you get involved, youre more aware of the situation, and thats always rewarding, to be aware of whats going on around you.Ž Commissioner Marcus wants the youth to know, you do not have to serve on a board to be involved. Pay attention, be involved in the elective process, have your opinions heard,Ž she said. Otherwise, people on the com-mission will think you dont care. Or youre happy with what were doing.Ž When asked what she will do when her term limits are up next November, she said, Oh, I dont know. Ive discov-ered in politics, a years a long time, so well see.Ž As far as what else shes discovered in politics, she has told Mrs. Bakcsi to be knowledgeable, to be fair and kind, to be sensitive, to be polite. Its good to have good people where they need to be,Ž Mrs. Bakcsi said. Its sad to see her go.Ž Q MARCUSFrom page 1SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered and Temple Beth Am are sponsoring a session on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer in the Jewish community. It will be held Nov. 10 from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. at Temple Beth AM, 2250 S. Central Blvd. in Jupiter. Some families carry a genetic change known as a mutation in genes called BRCA 1 or BRCA 2. These gene changes can cause a very high risk for breast and ovarian cancer to run in the fam-ily. Those of Jewish heritage need to pay particular attention as people of Ashke-nazi Jewish descent are affected more than any other ethnic population with approximately 1 in 40 having a BRCA mutation. Speakers at the education session include Dr. Elisabeth McKeen, oncol-ogy and cancer genetics; Dr. John Rim-mer, breast surgeon and director of the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program; Cathy Marinak, Cancer Risk Assess-ment and Genetics Program at Jupiter Medical Center; Amy Shainman, previ-vor, FORCE outreach coordinator and Temple Beth Am Member; and Sue Friedman, FORCE founder and execu-tive director. Refreshments and dessert will be served from 6:30 p.m.-7 p.m. and the panel discussion is from 7 p.m. -9 p.m. Attendees will learn that both men and women are affected by these genet-ic mutations. Women with this genetic mutation have up to an 87 percent life-time risk of developing breast cancer and up to a 50 percent lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer. Risks are elevated for other cancers as well, including prostate, pancreatic and melanoma. Ms. Shainman is a previvor, someone who is living with a very high risk for cancer but has not developed the disease. Learning that I carried a BRCA mutation, like so many others of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, was scary,Ž she says. But, this knowledge has empowered me to learn and to make choices that will affect my future for the better. FORCE provided me with the knowl-edge about hereditary cancer and the information on what I could do to reduce my cancer risk.Ž Thousands of women have turned to FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Can-cer Empowered, the nations only non-profit organization focused solely on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. In my new advocacy role as FORCE Outreach Coordinator for Palm Beach County, I feel compelled to let the Jew-ish community know we are here, and that through knowledge families can minimize the long-term impact of the BRCA gene mutation,Ž adds Ms. Shain-man. To register for the free seminar, go to FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast and ovar-ian cancer. Founded in 1999, FORCE serves thousands of families with sup-port, education, advocacy, awareness and research specific to the needs of this community.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickEating problems in cats too often get dismissed, thrown under the general heading of, What do you expect? Cats are finicky.Ž If your cat is simply off food for a day, theres no reason to worry. A simple upset stomach or a stressful change in her envi-ronment could be the culprit. And she might not be off food at all: If your cat has access to the outdoors, she may have eaten somewhere else „ off a neighbors porch or at an all-you-can-catch rodent buffet. But a persistent lack of appetite needs to be taken seriously. You can outlast any dog in a food duel „ sooner or later, a healthy but fussy dog will eat just about anything. A cat, however, can stop eating completely, a situation that may trigger hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver disease, a health emergency that can quickly turn fatal. If you have a finicky cat, its essential to work with your veterinarian and to know these tricks to get your cat eating:Q Fresh is best. Cats may be the original food snobs: In addition to having strong likes and dislikes, they often turn their noses up at food that has been sitting around too long. This can be especially true of canned food, which does get pretty unpleasant when left sitting out. Instead of leaving a days worth (or more) of food out, offer your cat small portions, fresh from the packaging. If she doesnt eat it after 30 minutes, try again in a couple of hours.Q Serve warm. Warming your cats food amps up its flavor and aroma. A few seconds in the microwave will do the trick.Q Break out the good stuff. If the cat wont eat a regular meal, it may be a passing problem; but if the cat rejects a favorite treat, like a bit of roasted chicken, its time to call your veterinarian. No one knows your cat better than you do, and if she sud-denly rejects a food she has been willing to beg for all her life, youll know your cat has troubles worth taking seriously. If lack of appetite is an ongoing concern with your cat and shes lost a half-pound or more, ask your veterinarian about the possibility of a medication to stimulate her appetite. Some antidepressant and anti-anxiety meds can help switch a cats appe-tite from the offŽ position back to on.Ž And if that doesnt help, your veterinarian can work with you to get to the root of the problem, and treat the underlying condition that will return a normal appetite and help to restore your cats good health.

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

Free Admission! FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 During football season, fans shop for T-shirts, banners, nodding heads, glasses and other souvenirs of the game. Through the years, many football toys also have been made. A 1930s iron mechanical place-kicker toy actually could kick a tiny football. This toy has been attributed to the Hubley Manu-facturing Co. of Lancaster, Pa., but we found the toys 1934 U.S. patent (No. 1,954,838). It was granted to Charles Woolsey and Henry Bowman of Minneapolis, who assigned it to the Hinsdale Manufacturing Co. of Chi-cago. The invention was a game, not just the place-kicking figure. There was a fiber-board backboard that represented a foot-ball field. It had football-shaped holes that were targets for the football kicked by the iron mechanical man. The kicker could be moved into different positions. The idea was to get the toy man to kick his miniature ball through one of the backboards holes for a goal. Few of the backboards have survived, so collectors often think the football player merely kicked the celluloid or tin ball into the air. Some information about the game is still unknown. Did Hinsdale manufacture it? Or did it sell its rights to Hubley? And is its value changed by knowing its part of a game, not a stand-alone toy? Q: I have a desk with a mark on the back that reads Sheboygan Novelty Co. Combination Ladies Desk, No 17.Ž Id like to know something about this company and the age of the desk. A: Sheboygan Novelty Co. was founded in 1890 in Sheboygan, Wis., and remained in business until the 1930s. The company made furniture, including book-cases, buffets, cellarettes, china cabinets, dining sets, ladies desks and cabinets for music, player-piano rolls and pho-nographs. Your combination bookcase-desk probably was made in about 1900. Q: I have a medal with a pic-ture of a turtle carrying a box on its back and the words Executive Experiment, 1837, Fiscal AgentŽ on one side. On the other side, theres a horse or donkey with the words I follow in the steps of my illustrious predecessor.Ž Can you tell me who made it and if it has any value? A: You have a Hard Times Token,Ž one of hundreds of different nongovernmental currency tokens made from 1834 until about 1844. In 1836, President Andrew Jackson issued an executive order, the Specie Cir-cular or Coinage Act, requiring payment in gold or silver coins when buying govern-ment land. It was meant to eliminate land speculation, but instead caused inflation, the hoarding of coins and the Panic of 1837. To help sales during that time, tokens that could be used as unofficial currency were made by merchants and other private companies. The tokens pictured various designs, advertising and political themes. They usually were made of copper and were about the size of the large penny of that era. The Coinage Act went into effect when President Martin Van Buren, Jack-sons successor, was in office. The words on your token were used by Van Buren in his inaugural address. The animal is a jackass. The turtle on the other side is carrying a safe. Value of your token: less than $25. Q: I have a pair of vaseline glass candleholders that are 9 inches tall. They are each on a six-sided double stand. They have an off-white cross with a figure of Jesus in gold. Also in gold are the letters I.N.R.I.Ž They have been in my family a long time. Someone told me they are more than 100 years old, but I know they were a wedding gift to my parents in 1916. I would appreciate any com-ment you may have about them. A: Pressed-glass crucifix candleholders were a popular religious item in the early 1900s, and were made by several differ-ent companies in various sizes and colors, including clear glass, milk glass, amber, blue, green, marigold, opal, purple and vase-line glass. Cambridge Glass Co. offered cru-cifix candlesticks in its 1903 catalog. McKee Glass Co. also made crucifix candlesticks in the early 1900s. The letters I.N.R.IŽ stand for the Latin words that translate to Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews.Ž A ship-ment of crucifix candlesticks was found in the wreckage of a steam-powered ocean liner that sank off the coast of Nantucket after colliding with another ocean liner in 1909. An ordinary pressed glass crucifix candlestick sells for $10 to $20. If the gold decoration on your pair is original, they would be worth more. Q: I have a teepee teapot, probably purchased in the earlyto mid-1950s by my parents during a trip to Canada. The spout is an Indian chief with headdress, and the handle is designed as a totem pole. The pot has a moose and leaves on it. The bottom says Cliff, Newport Pottery of England, Greetings from Canada.Ž Any information about it? A: Clarice Cliff (1899-1972) was a designer who worked at several English potter-ies, including Newport Pottery. Shes best known for her brightly colored Art Deco designs. Your Teepee teapot was designed in 1939 by Betty Sylvester, an apprentice at the pottery, but it was not produced until 1947. Kovels Antiques & Collectibles Price GuideŽ lists the teapot at $450.

EFFICIENT WATER HEATING REDUCES POWER BILL BY 30%BY SEANCOCHRANE I recently went to a family home in Palm Beach Gardens to quote them for a PV, Solar Power Unit. The family was looking to reduce their power consumption and take advantage of the 30% Fed-eral Government Tax Credit and possibly a rebate from FP&L. Once I examined the familys recent power bills and their power use patterns, it became obvi-ous that they would be better off investing in solar hot water unit, tankless gas unit or an ef“cient hybrid heat pump water heater, rather than the more costly solar power unit. This was because of their unique lifestyle and wise power usage. (Yet their old elec-tric hot water unit was a verita-ble power guzzler.) After a short evaluation we were able to show them how to make a much smaller investment on a more ef“cient hot water unit which will provide a greater return than immediately going for the solar power unit. This is expected since there are Federal Tax credits of 30% and FPL rebate programs of $1,000 available for changing to ef“cient solar hot water heaters. These programs saved them a few thou-sand dollars and basically halved their outlay while cutting 30% off their power bill. The family will now be able to put the savings made possible by the new hot water unit towards the future purchase of a solar power unit. This made my happy clients realize the bene“t of an in-home energy assessment, our holistic approach to energy ef“-ciency, and how they can bene“t from looking at the bigger picture when it comes to individual households. We are all different, and our houses are different„ hence the solutions are unique. One size does not “t all with most things and this applies to energy ef“cient products as well. If you are renovating or building a new home, now is the time to look at which energy ef“cient products you can incorporate for immediate cost-saving bene“ts, as well as things you could do to reduce the running cost of your home or business. You might be surprised at how some small changes are cost neutral, yet provide a great bene“t (LED lighting, for example). I am also pleased to also note that people often comment on how energy ef“cient products can increase the value of their homes. This shows that people out there are more aware and interested in purchasing a home with good design, that incorporates energy conscious attributes. Studies show that people are willing to pay extra money for greener homes. If you are looking to reduce your power bill, reduce your carbon footprint, or invest in an energy saving product, you should consult an expert in the “eld of energy ef“ciency and have them look at your unique situa-tion. Most reputable energy ef-“cient products companies offer an in home Energy Assessment service which is basically a miniEnergy Audit. The audit high-lights where energy is being over used or wasted, and then suggests which products will best be suited to your situation and budget. Parting Tip: If you are considering a renovation or new con-struction now is the time to talk to a USGBC Member or LEED trained, energy ef“cient product specialist and your builder about which energy saving or energy creating features you can incor-porate during the construction phase to deliver immediate and long term energy cost-saving bene“ts. For example, even if solar power is not on your immediate to-do list, making your home solar ready by prewiring it for the installation of solar power at a later date will save thousands of dollars in retro“t-ting costs. 3583 Northlake Blvd. North Palm Beach 1/4 mile East of I-95 START SAVING MONEY TODAY! 1-888-9SUPER G www.

PAGE 16 FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 There are many publications and resources available online that help to inform, update and engage foundation and non-profit professionals on what is happening domestically and worldwide in the field of philanthropy. I follow arti-cles published by the Chronicle of Philan-thropy and numerous other blogs and list serves that are community-foundation specific. Enormous volatility and uncer-tainty about the future make it impos-sible to anticipate what the lead headline or the below-the-fold story will be that captures the real estate on the front page. After working my way through morn-ing coffee and multiple newspapers and publications, I seldom find good newsŽ with which to kick-start a productive day. Optimism has become, by necessity, an urgent self-discipline; and keeping up with current events is an increasingly important part of any job that is focused on meeting the needs of families and communities. Stories continue to unfold. The new economic realities have created tough transitions for charities that have already seen dramatic declines in their budgets. They have known better times, although there has never really been a non-profit Gilded AgeŽ that alleviated, with a flush wallet, all the challenges associated with working in a sector characterized by few benefits, low salaries and often difficult working conditions; and now, workloads are multiplying. Fundraising has become much harder, too. Despite this, many non-profit professionals have demon-strated enormous leadership these past months. No one is giving up just yet; nor should they. But all recognize that their organizations fortunes ride on the tide of generosity many Americans are now pressed to feel fully capable of asserting or sustaining. The issues thus roiling philanthropy are many. Though people continue to give, the big question is for how long; and, will it be as much as in the past? Will the charitable deduction survive in its present form this next session of Con-gress? Much is at st ake on the outcome. Foundations and the non-profit sector have mobilized to shape the future tax policy but they are also busy trying to mop up after the devastation caused by the inundation of families by foreclosure and job loss. The competition for dollars has, however, created new approaches to fundraising. For example, its now more common practice to leverage donations by challenging donors to match gifts. The downside is more time and energy is required to do the multiplication. The public interest in the charitable sector is driven, in part, by the recogni-tion that donations support thousands of nonprofits in our area. Year-end giving is energized by the urgency of need. The pace and number of annual fundraisers have increased. The weakened economy serves as a compelling backdrop for all this activity. But there is deeper change at work. Its prelude is a renaissance in entrepreneurial thinking within the private sector that signals a re-assessment by some businesses of their role and stake in growing a strong, social economy. Doing well by doing good isnt just for nonprofits anymore. Businesses have typically supported charitable causes through sponsorships and underwriting. But that is changing. In international economies, the private sector is focusing on generating profits by creating busi-ness solutions to social issues. They are, in effect, a new business model centered on and inclusive of providing a social benefit that contributes toward a more sustainable future for people whose lives are lived on the margins of society. This hybrid form of a private/social sector business provides a product or service to remediate age-old issues of poverty; and their aim is, on the one hand, to supply affordable products and services, that, according to one article, meet basic needs of the poor for water, food, sanitation, housing and healthcare; and, on the other, to also create income and employment opportunities for low-income communities „ either directly or through companies value chains as suppliers, distributors, retailers and ser-vice providers.Ž Examples include pulp and paper businesses that purchase raw materials from small farmers, cell phone companies that provide banking services for the poor and cement companies that produce housing for low-income fami-lies. The private sector is not alone in its pursuit of opportunities for new revenue. Entrepreneurship among nonprofits is also increasing as they are driven to discover and explore the creation of new entities whose purpose is to generate revenue streams to fund the services an agency provides. The philanthropic uni-verse is expanding and the possibilities appear as infinite as the stars. 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 I never liked the idea of playing hard to get. To me, the concept seems manipula-tive and false. However, the prevailing wisdom of our elders has always been: this is the only strategy effective in win-ning, and keeping, the hearts of the ones we desire! As we navigate lifes joys and sorrows, and observe the experiences of those around us, we may discover a compelling explanation that could help us understand why this strategy has proven so effective for so many. Its important to note that many people reach for the challenge and ultimate sat-isfaction of snagging what was thought to be out of reach. When someone comes on too strong in the beginning, the other may instinctively pull back, or flee. So, when we play hard to get,Ž we may intuitively understand the importance of toning down our efforts and intensity, giving the other person the space to step back, breathe, and sort out their feelings. This often gives them the necessary room to settle down and move more comfortably towards the relation-ship. Lets think about what happens when a person plays hard to getŽ by observing what happens with Susan and Mike. Mike was given Susans number, by a mutual friend. He called her and a date was set. The evening went well: conversa-tion flowed easily and both felt an immedi-ate rapport. Susan was eager to hear from Mike but held back from her inclination to call him. She left it up to him to make the next move. The next date went famously, but again, Susan waited for him to set the plans. When he did not call the very next day, she debated whether to call him, but held herself back. So what is going on between the two? Susan showed enthusiasm but made sure she kept a bit of a reserve. She did not initiate phone-calling (or texting) and was not the one to suggest getting together. At the end of the day, she was friendly, but in no way did she convey that she was overly focused on this relationship. What does this accomplish, not only for Susan, but for Mike, as well? Lets further consider what it means when a person states that he needs space.Ž In order to answer that question effectively, we need to remind ourselves about some basic human dynamics. When a relationship is new and exciting, many of us move forward with increased intensity and emotion. All of us struggle with balancing our need to be independent and our need to be with others. We may worry that immers-ing ourselves into a relationship may be at the expense of our individual wishes and needs. We may need to proceed at our own pace until we feel comfortable. We often think that needing spaceŽ solely applies to dating or uncommitted relationships. We may assume that in committed relationships, we just natu-rally know what our partners need. We may become disappointed when our loved ones are not able to figure out what is important to us. Finding a comfortable balance in a longterm relationship is often a challenge. When people dont take the time to clarify what is important to them and dont speak up, they may lose an important part of their self-esteem and identity. Sometimes, one or the other feels smotheredŽ or uneasy. It may feel like they are being crowded or do not have the room to be themselves. They may not have the insight or self-awareness to understand why they are feeling ill at ease. They just know that something doesnt feel quite right. They may pull away or try to put some distance between themselves and the other. This can feel like a rejection and cause tremendous hurt and anxiety. It often helps at this time to react paradoxically. When a person feels hurt they might be inclined to reach for reassurance or more contact. However, if this person takes a deep breath, calmly steps away and gives his partner breathing room, the other is much more inclined to step towardsŽ the relationship. Now, some of you will protest that its not fair if one person gets to make the moves. Why should this person be in control? Well, of course you are right! However, as they say, life is not always fair! Some-times we need to be smart enough to figure out how to make things happen in our lives. If we can learn what we need to do from our end to ensure the growth and well being of a relationship, then I dont consider it game-playing. Rather, I consider it as having the savvy to understand the emotional make-up of the other person, and to understand what is needed for the comfort level of both parties!

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 A17 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Scripps Research Institute has been awarded a $500,000 grant by the Michael J. Fox Foundation to study a pair of genetic mutations that could lead to a new therapeutic target for Par-kinsons disease, a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Philip LoGrasso, a professor in molecular therapeutics and senior director for drug discovery at Scripps Florida in Jupiter, is principal investigator. The study will focus on two genes, the leu-cine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) and the serum glucocorticoid-regu-lated kinase 1 (SGK1). Genetic testing of sever-al thousand Parkinsons patients has shown that the risk of Parkinsons disease associ-ated with mutations in the LRRK2 gene are reduced by mutations in the SGK1 genes, bringing the risk back in line with that of the general population. SGK1 was discovered by 23andMe, Inc., a personal genetics company. The company has 125,000 genotyped custom-ers, and nearly 90 percent have opted-in to participate in the companys Institu-tional Review Board-approved research. 23andMe has amassed the single larg-est Parkinsons research cohort in the world, which now comprises approxi-mately 6,000 participants and includes one of the largest cohorts of individuals carrying the pathogenic mutations in the LRRK2 gene. With this award Dr. LoGrasso joins the LKRR2 Consortium, established last year by the Michael J. Fox Founda-tion. The consortium is an international group of academic and industry part-ners dedicated to accelerating LRRK2 therapeutic development. Since the 1960s the mainstay for the treatment of Parkinsons has been levodopa (L-DOPA), a drug that pro-vides only symptomatic relief. L-DOPA loses efficacy over time and has side effects that limit its effectiveness. Patients with Parkinsons disease suffer from a loss of dopaminergic neu-rons in a specific area of the brain. An estimated one million Americans are believed to suffer from the disease, according to the Parkinsons Disease Foundation; approximately 40,000 new cases are reported annually. The LRRK2 gene was first linked to Parkinsons disease in 2004, and many believe it to be the most common genet-ic contributing factor to the disease. While hereditary forms of the disease are relatively rare … an estimated five to 10 percent … unlocking the mechanisms involved in both LRRK2 and SGK1 could eventually benefit all patients. Mutations in the LRRK2 gene have been linked with an increased risk of Parkinsons disease and Crohns disease. SGK1 is involved in a number of biomo-lecular processes including inflamma-tion, cell proliferation, and apoptosis or programmed cell death. It is believed that the gene also plays a role in brain disorders other than Parkinsons dis-ease, such as schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimers disease. Q Michael J. Fox Foundation grant awarded to Scripps Jupiter scientist LOGRASSO


FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach County property tax bills have been mailed, and property owners can get a 4 percent discount if they pay by Nov. 30. Approximately 80 percent of taxpayers pay in November. That means they receive the maxi-mum discount of 4 percent for early payment,Ž said Anne Gannon, county tax collector. This tax savings can make a difference for fami-lies in these difficult economic times.Ž The last of nearly 706,000 county property tax bills went out in the mail Oct. 31. For any taxpayer who does not pay in full in November, the discount decreas-es by 1 percent with each month „ to 3 percent in December, 2 percent in Janu-ary and 1 percent in February. There is no discount for payments made in March. Payments made after April 1 are delinquent. The bills represent total tax revenue of $3.07 billion, Ms. Gannon said in a prepared statement. The ad valorem tax, calculated by the property apprais-er, represents $2.7 billion in property values. The non-ad valorem tax, a flat fee per acre or housing unit, makes up the balance, or $330 million,Ž Ms. Gan-non said. The five cities in Palm Beach County paying the most in property taxes are West Palm Beach (assessed value: $11 billion, total taxes: $68 million), Boca Raton (assessed value: $19.3 bil-lion, total taxes: $51.8 million), Del-ray Beach (assessed value: $7.4 billion, total taxes: $44 million), Town of Palm Beach (assessed value: $12.2 billion, total taxes: $38 million) and Riviera Beach (assessed value: $3.7 billion, total taxes: $27 million). Others include Palm Beach Gardens (assessed value: $9.2 billion, total taxes: $45 million), Jupiter (assessed value: $8.6 billion, total taxes: $18 million), North Palm Beach (assessed value: $1.8 billion, total taxes: $10.4 million), Juno Beach (assessed value: $1 billion, total taxes: $2.7 million), and Lake Park (assessed value: $562 million, total taxes: $3.8 million). Ms. Gannon offers advice to taxpayers: Pay property taxes online at to avoid waiting in line at busy service centers. The agency website has a Property Tax HelpŽ feature that includes impor-tant information on payments, dead-lines and discounts. Taxpayers may also pay by mail. They must include the Property Control Number(s) on their check and return without staples or clips. Non-compli-ance results in rejection by the agencys high speed mail processing. Rejected returns must be processed by hand and take much longer. For taxpayers who prefer visiting a service center, they are encouraged to use drop boxes for payments. A drop box is at each Constitutional Tax Col-lector Service Center. The main phone number at the tax collectors office is 355-2264.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 A19 T READS LIKE ONE OF THOSE JOHN GRISHAM NOVELS. You know the kind were talking about: Idealistic young lawyer „ fresh out of law school „ takes on a seemingly impossible case on behalf of regular folk wronged by a large, powerful en-tity. No one else wants the case, but idealistic young lawyer takes it anyway. Idealistic young law-yer, through innovative strategy, righteousness and sheer pluck, prevails against what seems to insurmountable odds. In the end, the regular folk are made whole, the powerful entity is humbled and the idealistic young lawyer becomes a bona fide folk hero. Yes, classic John Grisham stuff, but in the case of Todd Allen, a Naples lawyer who had been practicing a mere eight months before he humbled Bank of America and went on to earn a standing as an international sym-bol of Everymans fight against the Establishment, this is no fictionalized account. And since Mr. Allens highly publicized legal battle last June with Bank of America (he threatened to turn the tables and foreclose on the bank), life has taken a series of twists and turns that not even a fiction specialist like Mr. Gr-isham could have envisioned. I think I knew things had really changed when I got a call from Chers manager wanting to discuss a possible movie deal,Ž says Mr. Allen. At first I thought it was a prank call, but then I realized it wasnt.Ž (Movie rights have been assigned to a production company, by the way, which is in the process of developing a project based on Mr. Allens improbable saga.) For those with short memories, the basic outline of Mr. Allens story goes like this: Warren and Maureen Nyerges, a retired couple from Ohio, had purchased in 2009, for cash, a $165,000 home in Golden Gate. Since they paid cash, Mr. and Mrs. Nyerges owned the home free and clear. There was no mortgage. Bank of America, however, thought differently. The bank said there was a mortgage and that the couple was behind in their payments. Early last year, Bank of America sought to foreclose on the home. Mr. and Mrs. Nyerges attempted to reason with the bank, but to no avail. Some two dozen attorneys passed on taking the case. But Mr. Allen agreed to take on Bank of America. He was successful in getting the bank to drop the case, but Bank of America „ despite a court order „ refused to pay Mr. and Mrs. Nyerges some $2,500 to cover Mr. Allens fees. Things dragged on until Mr. Allen introduced an audacious gambit into the proceedings: HeSEE LAWYER, A22 XIBETTERthanFICTION T T T R R JO JO JO H H Yo Yo Y ta ta t l l yo yo y of of of o a a s s s s ca ca a a a se se e o o o n n n n n be be be b wr wr r r on on on n ge ge ge ge g d d d d b b b ti ti i t t ty ty t y y .

Gordon, Esquire Brinkley Morgan Marital and Family Law Partner FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 MONEY & INVESTINGSpecific suggestions to address Occupy Wall Street’s broad complaints Occupy Wall Street occupies our minds, news coverage and conversations. For some, it is an unorganized effort with an amorphous agenda that has an ulti-mate socialist aim to redistribute rightfully earned wealth. For the protestors or those in support, it is a last-ditch attempt to wrong seri-ous flaws in a capitalist system that was intended to create financial opportunity for all but has become rigged to drive gains disproportionately to a select few. No doubt, the protestors disorganized approach is spreading like wildfire as the open agenda has allowed a potpourri of folks with disparate complaints to suddenly band together in solidarity. Once U.S. only, it has become international with crowds of up to 500,000 in major European cities. A common goal of Occupy Wall Street protestors is to get some of the wealth of the U.S. wealthiest 1 percent into the hands of the remaining 99 percent. The wealthiest 1 percent can be defined a host of different ways; one demarcation is annual income of $300,000 (or more), as of 2008 income data. The 1 percent includes all sorts of professions: Holly-wood execs, doctors, Silicon Valley execs, publicly traded company senior manage-ment, top college presidents, all sorts of financial services executives, etc. Another way to break down the 1percent is by quality of their labor: those who creat-ed wealth through tireless effort, countless years of sweat, years of academic training and attendant school debt burdens, per-sonal risk-taking including personal guar-antees of all corporate debt, commitment to professional excellence, and a desire to create employment opportunities for hard working U.S. citizens as opposed to those who have perverted the free market capi-talist system so as to unfairly skew corpo-rate profits to elite senior management. The protestors ire is often directed against any and all in the top 1 percent but, maybe, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water.Ž Anger and protest energy might be more appropriately direct-ed against those who have perverted the U.S. capitalist system and not those hard working, risk-taking, entrepreneurs who embraced the capitalist system, persevered and created a pot of gold and thus entered the 1 percent. My cry is not that some have succeeded so very well but, rather, that many of the one percent have taken disproportionately from the pot of corporate wealth; that much corporate wealth could have flowed down to the middle management and rank and file; that many of the casino risks taken in our financial institutions were never cards intended for playing. Absolutely, their boards of directors offered top executives at many publicly traded companies greedy-safe, fail-safeŽ plans. Plan A was to use taxpayer and shareholder capital or government guarantees as the risk capital for taking sizeable casino bets, from which they expected to/actually did garner humongous personal gains; and/or to outsource as many U.S. service and manufacturing jobs as possible, thereby driving earnings higher, stock prices higher and option packages so much higher. Was their skin in the game? No! Worse, their compensation packages provided that if Plan A failed, Plan B (astronomically high compensation termination packages) became operative. It was the old win-win routine. Should we blame all the 1 percent for this? I think not. The CEOsƒ for sure, but they took sugar offered to them by their boards of directors that allowed these com-pensation plans. All the while, they were allowing flat lining of the salaries of the rank-and-file and outsourcing millions of jobs. Enraged hearts often look to the easiest way to solve their problems. The seemingly easiest way to address these problems is to transfer wealth from the havesŽ to the have nots.Ž But additional taxation on all the 1 percent would dis-incentivize many entrepreneurial risk takers who continue to help create new jobs in the U.S. These babes belong in incubators. Here are some suggestions about fixing the structural problems in the capitalist system. Q Boards need to end the CEO win-win compensation packages. The highest echelons of senior management must have exposure to a public companys losses. Prior to the 1990s many of the investment firms with proprietary trading were partnerships; the senior part-ners were at risk and absolutely wanted to protect their retirement cash flow. Q Superior compensation should go to those CEOs affirming a U.S. manufactur-ing/service labor market, not for affirming cheap labor out-sourcing. Q The SEC could make every publicly traded company annually report growth in CEO compensation vis--vis the changes in wages of the rank and file workers and earnings growth. Charts often tell a story clearly. The capitalist system is the best one around the worldƒ just ask the Chinese who embrace much of it. But the U.S. capitalist system is currently structurally flawed. Increased taxation of the one percent does nothing to solve the structural prob-lems. And some of the solutions are within reach of those controlling pension fund investments. Q „ Jeannette Rohn Showalter, CFA, can be reached at 239-444-5633, ext. 1092.

PAGE 22 FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 essentially foreclosedŽ on the fore-closer. Armed with a court order and accompanied by Collier County sheriffs deputies and a moving van, he appeared at the Bank of America branch on Davis Boulevard on June 3 and said he was not leaving until the bank coughed up the couples fees. If the bank chose not to comply, he said deputies and moving men were prepared to begin hauling furniture, cash, computers and whatever else out of the building, most of which would be sold at public auction. Because of legal constraints, Mr. Allen cannot discuss in detail what transpired that day at the bank. But the bottom line is that Bank of America, rather than lose its furniture and what little was left of its dignity, issued a check for about $2,500 to cover the expenses of Mr. and Mrs. Ny-erges. Mr. Allen later got another $3,000 out of the bank to cover his expenses in the case. The bank also apologized to Mr. and Mrs. Nyerges and blamed the fiasco on an outside attorney it had employed. Mr. Allen suspected the unusual events might attract some limited local publicity, but he was unprepared for the firestorm of international attention that followed. The story struck a chord with millions of people worldwide who have battled banks and other lending institutions dur-ing the economic meltdown. In a time when individuals seem to have precious little control over how their economic lives are governed, Mr. Allen became a symbol of hope. It was the ultimate David versus Goliath story,Ž he says.Outside the boxMr. Allen says he is not sure why some 25 other lawyers turned down the case, but he suspects it has something to do with the way law schools train their students. Lawyers are taught that things fit into certain boxes, and if a case doesnt fit a particular box, that presents a problem,Ž he says. Sometimes lawyers are not the most creative people when it comes to thinking outside those boxes.Ž The limited local media attention Mr. Allen expected came and went, but the floodgates around the world opened wide and have yet to be shut. The catalyst for the international coverage was when the story appeared in the Drudge Report. From there, the Huffington Post and Fox News picked it up, and soon the story seemed to take on a life of its own. Im still getting calls from places like New Zealand and Guatemala,Ž says Mr. Allen, who has left his old firm and now practices with Goede & Adamczyk. Many of them are from attorneys want-ing to know how we did what we did.Ž News organizations from Britain to Brazil have wanted Mr. Allen to tell his story. At one point, I hurt my back,Ž Mr. Allen recalls, and I had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, in the ambulance, I was on the telephone, conducting an interview.Ž In what might be the ultimate test of pop culture stardom, The Daily Show with Jon StewartŽ ran a segment on Mr. Allen. In introducing the feature, Mr. Stewart said that with all the depressing economic news, it was important to focus on an uplifting, feel-good story from the world of finance „ and theres only one.Ž In typical Daily ShowŽ style, Mr. Allen was described as a super lawyer.Ž I thought it was hilarious,Ž Mr. Allen says of the spot. Then came the movie deal, something Mr. Allen says caught him completely by surprise.A lawyer is bornWhile Mr. Allen, 33, is new to the practice of law „ he graduated from Ave Maria School of Law in 2010 „ his inter-est in the legal profession is longstanding. A native of Utah, he says he decided to become a lawyer after watching a dedicated attorney help a family member who was in great need. A graduate of Brigham Young University, he spent his Mormon mission in small towns in Georgia and says that ex-perience further heightened his desire to use the law as a means of protecting the interests of those who have little clout. Ave Maria School of Law recruits vigorously at Brigham Young University, he says, and that partially explains how he ended up there. Another factor, though, is Ave Marias dedication to using the law as a force for social good and not merely as a means of making money, he adds. According to Mr. Allen, he receives calls almost daily from people with fore-closure problems in other states. I have to tell them that I cant help them, that Im not licensed in their state,Ž he says. But I always try to do some research and find someone in their area who can help them. Many of the stories I hear are heartbreaking.Ž Mr. Allen says he stays grounded through family (he and his wife have two children, ages 6 and 2), and with an oc-casional round of golf. I always believed I could use the law to do good, to help people and be successful,Ž he says. But, no, I never envisioned anything like this. And I know at some point this (publicity) will fade, and Im fine with that. What brings me the most satisfaction is simply helping people and sometimes helping them with more than just their legal problems. People will come into my office in tears, literally. They are crying, desperate. If I can do something that allows them to leave feeling ecstatic or happy or hopeful, then Ive done my job.Ž Cynics might read Mr. Allens statements and dismiss them as the self-serv-ing blathering of a lawyer seeking solely to capitalize on a once-in-a-lifetime op-portunity. But Chris Bray, a Naples wealth management specialist and an attorney himself, says those cynics are wrong. Thats an understandable reaction, because lets be honest, a lot of lawyers are scumbags,Ž says Mr. Bray, who also teaches at Ava Maria School of Law and had Mr. Allen as one of his students. That is not the case with Todd. Hes not a media whore.Ž Mr. Bray has become something of a mentor and adviser to Mr. Allen and says he told him theres nothing wrong with using this attention to aid his career. I encouraged Todd not to be bashful about this; I told him to husband this opportunity,Ž Mr. Bray says. Lets face it, this is good for his career, and there is nothing wrong with that. I think all of this has been positive and good, not just for Todd, but for people who need hope in todays (economic) environment.Ž Mr. Bray likens a possible movie about Todd Allen to the film that was made about Erin Brockovich. (Mr. Allens experience in the bank case) is just a very, very good story,Ž he says. I could very well see this on HBO or something like that. If you watch The Daily Show segment, you see (the movie) possibili-ties. The Daily Show writers obviously understood what a great story this is.Ž This is just a hunch, but perhaps the only people on the planet who fail to see the enormous cinematic potential of this tale are those who occupy the executive suites at Bank of America.

El Sol Center provides social services to the areas Latin American commu-nity. It also is a haven for art, and on Nov. 6, it will host its Fourth Annual Art Fest. At the fest, expect to see a variety of original art, includ-ing paintings, crafts and hand-made jewelry, plus colorful tex-tiles, apparel and other items from Guatemala. Its a unique event. It showcases the art of artists from Central and South America and, in particular, artists from a region of Guatemala that has pro-duced generations of primitive artists,Ž says Jill Hanson, an area labor attorney and immediate past president at El Sol.

It was hot out, one of those early-fall afternoons in South Florida when the heat rips the breath right out of your lungs. I was killing time, having a coffee while I waited for a friend, and as I scanned the cafe I noticed a young woman in knee-high boots. I couldnt help thinking, Shes got to be hot in those boots. This was before our recent cold snap when the thought of wearing calf-length leather still made me break out in a sweat. I took a sip of my iced latte and wondered about the young womans get-up. I didnt have to wonder long. In my next sweep of the caf „ my friend: still absent „ I saw a very cute young man. He wore a T-shirt and cargo shorts, flip-flops and a baseball cap, the uni-form of the college-aged South Florida male. He was dark-haired and well built, handsome in a frat boy sort of way. The young woman in the too-hot boots noticed too. As I watched, she picked up her laptop and walked straight to him, maneuvering past the other tables in the crowded cafe. Excuse me?Ž she said.The frat boy looked up from his magazine. Im trying to connect to the Internet? And my computers not working?Ž He looked at her and blinked a few times. The man sitting at the table next to him (also cute, but in a geeky, less cool way) spoke up. Let me take a look.ŽThe young woman hesitated a second before handing over her computer. When she spoke, she only talked to the first young man. I dont know whats wrong with it,Ž she said.The second man looked over the computer then scrunched his eye-brows together. It says you are connected to the Internet,Ž he said. The woman looked perplexed, but I didnt buy it. Are you sure?Ž she said. The young man with the computer showed the frat boy. Right?Ž The frat boy looked like he might laugh. Its connected,Ž he said. I had the feeling hed seen this game before. The young woman, out of alternatives, thanked them both and walked her knee-high boots back to her seat. Not much later the frat boy got up and left. I turned back to my book and silently shook my head. Such a rookie mistake. But I sympathize. I made the same errors when I was her age, when I thought all I needed was gumption and a hot outfit to snag a man. Its taken me a while to realize otherwise, and sometimes I still forget. Its hard to remember that romance is a dance, a carefully choreographed series of steps where both partners have strict roles. When I start to slip up „ say, when I meet a great new guy „ I have to remind myself of a bit of wisdom I once read: The thirsty man comes to the well. In love, its important not to be too thirsty. We should all strive to be the well. Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA thirsty man comes to the well Ilh fi m A ti artis HENDERSON O

PAGE 32 FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 It requires a two-story home and a back yard,Ž Mr. Hayes says. In our old space, you could create a room, but in this new space you can create a world.Ž The old, 84-seat space on Banyan Boulevard was intimate, but had low ceilings and cramped quarters. Mr. Hayes and company were limited as to what they could present. What excites me most is the body of work that now opens up to us in this new space,Ž he says, pointing to anoth-er show this season. The Pittman Painters also wouldnt work very effectively in the old space.Ž But back to All My Sons.ŽWe like to not do the mainstream stuff and with Arthur Miller, his most famous play is Death of a Salesman, but its All My Sons that put him on the map,Ž Mr. Hayes says. It takes place after a war period where theres corruption.Ž That makes sense, given the plays post-World War II premiere. And its part of what Dramaworks is known for. Generally I open up the season with a classic,Ž Mr. Hayes says. The play-wright will be the draw but it wont be their most known work.Ž That has been a tradition for the theater company, founded in 2000 by Mr. Hayes, managing director Sue Ellen Beryl and company manager Nanique Gheridian. We actually started renting at Palm Beach Atlantic University,Ž Mr. Hayes says. But it goes much further back. As long as I can remember, I knew I wanted to have a theater company and produce and direct and act.Ž Think back to two decades ago, when Florida Stage first was emerging, and Caldwell wasnt quite the regional powerhouse it went on to become. When I first moved here 20 years ago there was no regional theater,Ž Mr. Hayes says. There was really no outlet for an artist in West Palm Beach, so I said, Lets create an outlet.ŽCommitment of time, moneyDoing that involved a certain level of commitment. You work seven days a week, build an organization and dont look back,Ž Mr. Hayes says. Even moving in to Clematis Street Theatre, Im saying were here. Whats the next step?Ž That has been the thought process that has driven Dramaworks. We moved to PBAU, and knew that would be short-lived,Ž he says. For its second season, the company moved to a 45-seat theater on Clematis Street. After a couple of years there, the company moved to its latest space, an 84-seat theater on Banyan Boulevard. Its always been our philosophy to put our money into the product rather than the venue,Ž Mr. Hayes says. That space brought audiences upclose and personal with works by Eugene ONeill, Edward Albee, Eugene Ionesco, David Mamet and Henrik Ibsen. The range spanned styles and generations. It called for a specific taste. It wasnt for everyone,Ž Mr. Hayes says. No Exit, The Dresser and The Chairs. Its not for everyone, but it was for more than I thought. I underesti-mated the South Florida audience.Ž In what way?There are a lot of savvy intelligent theatergoers here,Ž he says. We quickly grew. Last year, we were run-ning shows for nine weeks and turning people away. As of last year, we were completely maxed out. With Freuds Last Patient, we had people waiting at the door to see if people turned in tickets.ŽNational attentionMaybe some of that was the result of national coverage. When we did The Chairs, that was the first time The New York Times vis-ited South Florida,Ž Mr. Hayes says. The Wall Street Journals drama critic, Terry Teachout, visited the area and started covering South Florida theater. We were doing The Chairs and GableStage was doing Adding Machine,Ž Mr. Hayes says. The ChairsŽ is Mr. Ionescos absurdist piece, and Adding MachineŽ is Jason Loewith and Joshua Schmidts musical about the soul-rot of conven-tion. That heady fare put critics on notice that South Florida offered serious the-ater. Sometimes you go to the theater to escape and sometimes you go to be moved,Ž Mr. Hayes says. Theater to think about. Its simplistic but thats what we are. We do classic plays and we do new plays.Ž Theyre designed to instigate discussion the way home from the theater, he says. And to hold up American society and ourselves there is no more power-ful pulpit than the theater.Ž And for Palm Beach Dramaworks, that pulpit is about to reach a larger congregation. Were going to be serving the same amount of people in four weeks but the response is so strong were already expanding into a fifth week,Ž Mr. Hayes says, adding the theater ended its last year doing $1.1 million in ticket sales. Last year, we ended up with a bit over 2,700 subscribers for the 84-seat theater,Ž he says. Were currently pushing 3,500 subscribers.Ž In a time when other theater companies are facing economic crises of the sort that forced critically acclaimed Florida Stage to close this summer, Palm Beach Dramaworks ended its fiscal year $323,000 in the black, Mr. Hayes says. Were about 70 percent sold out for this year already, and the season hasnt even started. So Id better be good,Ž he says. He hopes to have the space to do just that. The new auditorium, recently named the Don & Ann Brown Theatre for the Palm Beach Gardens couple who donated $2 million to the theater, is an Art Deco building known as the Cuillo Centre for the Arts. Dramaworks gutted the auditorium of the 1940s building, paring it from a steeply raked 374-seat house to the more intimate 214. We wanted to be sure we had the right facility and the perfect mix,Ž says resident director J. Barry Lewis. When you come into this chamber, you dont know what youre in for.Ž Backstage, the space is narrow. There is no curtain, and the stage itself juts out into the room, a nod to the com-panys tradition of offering an intimate space. But many of the buildings original touches remain, including the stun-ning terrazzo floors of the lobby and a telephone booth that has vintage metal lettering on the door. Theres a rehearsal space that eventually will become a studio theater for Dramaworks. There also is the larger staff that accompanies a larger space. We have the most awesome staff. We went from eight. Theyre going to make sure what the public sees is damn good,Ž Mr. Hayes says. I prom-ise you when you walk into the facility its going to blow your mind.Ž The theater also was able to hire former Florida Stage employees. We now have seven of the Florida Stage staff. We knew who they were, we knew they were a class act and knew they were extremely good in their field,Ž he says. That gives the company a full-time staff of 20, and represents quite a change. Operationally, there was a huge shift overnight. It was a big adjustment for Bill and Sue Ellen, to be sure,Ž he says with a laugh. But perhaps he best sums up that transition, from tiny, low-ceilinged space to large hall this way: Our budget increased 30 percent, to go from plumbing pipes to a cat-walk.Ž Q Palm Beach Dramaworks opens its 2011/2012 season in its new space on Nov. 11.Here’s the season rundown.>> “All My Sons,” by Arthur Miller, Nov. 12-Dec. 11. >> “The Effect of Gamma Rays on “Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds,” by Paul Zindel, Jan. 6-Jan. 29. >> “The Pittman Painters,” by Lee Hall, Feb. 17-March 11. >> “Master Harold … and the boys,” by Athol Fugard, April 8-29. >> “Proof,” by David Auburn,” May 25-June 17.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Congratulations. Your self-assurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you off-course and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Some changes might seem confusing at first, especially to an Aries whose impatience levels are pretty shaky this week. Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commit-ment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunder-standing. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new l ove, as w ell as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peo-ples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker.

B8 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 3-9, 2011 FLORIDA WEEKLY +++ Is it worth $10? No“Puss in Boots” takes arguably the best part of the last two “Shrek” movies, stretches it as thin as can be and leaves us hating cats. Well, maybe not hating cats. But this movie plays like one of Puss’ tired, well-worn boots — it feels used and recycled, with a few good kicks but really on its last leg. An origin story that doesn’t directly connect to the “Shrek” movies (why would it when the prospect of making more prequels and tie-ins beckons?), “Puss” follows the title character on a quest for golden eggs. To find them, he must locate a giant beanstalk, climb it and track down the Golden Goose, from whom the eggs ema-nate. In the way are Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (Amy Sedaris), Puss’ old friend and bad egg Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) as well as a cat named Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek). We also meet Puss as an orphan kitten (he’s very cute), see how he got his name and achieved his tough-guy persona in spite of his diminu-tive stature and watch him execute a number of stunts that no real cat would ever consider doing. Antonio Banderas continues to thrive as Puss, and the match between Puss’ animation and Mr. Banderas’ voice is still a great fit; when Pushimself a “bad kitty” and shows what a caa cat he is with the ladies, it’s fun to belieThat said, Mr. Banderas doesn’t have much The script and Chris Miller’s directing do favors to Ms. Hayek, Mr. Thornton and the of the ensemble, and the story sputters instthrusting forward. The Puss/Humpty Dumpty back-story should have come at the beginning rather than middle, and dance fights between Puss and are just silly. Worse, the flat, forced jokes no one well, including Mr. Galifianakis, finds a way to turn Humpty Dumpty into from “The Hangover.” How he does this is to explain but fairly obvious after you see movie — which I’m not recommending you do. The 3D certainly isn’t worth the extra money, but the anima-tion is crisp, solid and professional. One the filmmakers do well is add little cat-ismsthroughout, thereby allowing cat owners ttake special delight in some of the humorYou have to be made of stone to not findromping felines cute, and jokes about cat-nip, “cat people,” purring, birds and moresucceed in bringing a smile. All of this is wand good, but a movie needs to be more cute to be appealing. One thing that made the first “Shrek” so effective was its abil-ity to tell jokes that L‘Puss dan HUDAK O &KHFNRXWRXUIDEXORXVIDOOVSHFLDOV NOVEMBER FALL FEATHER FASHION AT CARTOON CUTS!During November, Cartoon Cuts will offer a 3-feather installation for just $19.99!

In “Puss in Boots” there’s a reference to “Fight Club” that isn’t funny for children or adults. In other words, it’s clear that every-thing about this franchise has run its course. Sorry Puss, but your nine lives are up. Q REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.comParanormal Activity 3 +++ (Chloe Csengery, Jessica Tyler Brown, Lauren Bittner) Young Katie (Ms. Csengery) and Kristi (Ms. Brown) meet the demon that will affect them later in life in this prequel to the first two “Paranormal” movies. There are some good scares here (even if most are fake), and Ms. Csengery and Ms. Brown deliver darned impressive performances. Rated R.Johnny English Reborn + (Rowan Atkinson, Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson) Idiot British Secret Agent Johnny English (Mr. Atkinson) must save the life of the Chinese premier in this silly James Bond spoof. The gags are forced and not funny, the story is a waste of time and there are only a few decent laughs. Rated PG. The Thing ++ (Joel Edgerton, Mary Elizabeth Win-stead, Ulrich Thomsen) An alien gets free at a remote Antarctic research center and hides in the bodies of humans, forcing mankind to turn on one another in an attempt to survive. It’s typical horror stuff, but worth checking out for the truly freaky character transformations and visual effects. Rated R.Footloose ++ (Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid) Big city kid Ren (Mr. Wormald) moves to a small Georgia town that has banned public dancing and falls for the wild-child daugh-ter (Ms. Hough) of the preacher (Mr. Quaid) who instituted the ban. Although this remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon classic is better than loyal fans of the original will want it to be, it also has the same flaws as its predecessor. Rated PG-13.

Mrs. Smokeys Bar-B-Q, which had three locations in Manhattan, one at Sawgrass in Sunrise and one near Home Depot on Northlake Boulevard, has opened at the former Simply Marias in Lake Park. Its a family affair, too, with Mrs. Smokey herself, Elisa Caplan, sharing duties with husband Scott Howie and daughters Rebecca and Rachel. Mrs. Smokeys location in the Gardens only was open from 2003-2004. But that Sawgrass location was open for 10 years, and was featured on the Food Networks Top FiveŽ for having one of the best drive-throughs in the area, she said. Its so exciting to be open again,Ž Ms. Caplan said. I like making people happy.Ž Customers probably will be happy with such comfort fare as fried biscuits and Tiny Tators, her version of Tater Tots. Her Two Gun sandwiches are hefty. The Loaded Chicken ($6.99) came with sliced white-meat chicken, bacon, cheddar and scallions. And shes not afraid of the heat, either. Her barbecue sauces pack plenty of punch. A cup of the smoked chicken noodle soup ($2.99) had a rich broth and plenty of chicken, and hit the right note, even if it didnt have as many of the elbow macaroni noodles as we might have expected. Inside, the space is spare and whimsical, with a cows skull hanging above the kitchen window. You order at the counter and youre assigned a name „ Crazy Horse,Ž Annie Oakley,Ž Chief Crazy Horse.Ž It has a fun western theme „ Roy Rogers and Dale Evans films played on the flat-screen television overhead the day we visited. There was a steady stream of customers coming in on a Thursday. We secretly opened yesterday,Ž Ms. Caplan said.She said she is looking forward to making the most of her small space. We can seat about 24 people on the inside, and will have outside seating, so well be able to seat another 16 or so outside, plus we have a drive-through window but we havent opened that yet.Ž All the better for the stampede.Mrs. Smokeys Bar-B-Q is just south of Northlake Boulevard at 1460 10th St., Lake Park.
