The Miles for Makayla 5KRun/WalkŽ will be held at 7:30 a.m. Nov. 19 at Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter. This inaugural event, presented by Braman Motorcars of Jupiter, will feature a 5K race through the community of Abacoa; Makaylas Mile, a family friendly walk; and free races for kids ages 4 to 9. The day will include a baby/toddler walk for kids ages 3 and under. IHOP will provide a free pancake breakfast to all those registered. Makayla Joy Sittons life was taken in a deadly massacre nearly two years ago on Thanksgiving night in her familys Jupi-ter home. The grief over the loss of their 6-year-old daughter is still profound for the Sittons. But they say they find comfort in knowing Makaylas light shines on. This race event means a lot to us because it will bring families together for a great cause, it will honor our little girl, and it will bring some good out of a hor-rible tragedy,Ž said Muriel and Jim Sitton. The outpouring of support from volun-teers and businesses in our community has touched us deeply.Ž Money raised supports the Makayla Joy Sitton Foundation. Its mission is to inspire families through the arts and edu-cation, giving children in need the chance to enjoy the same creative pursuits that Makayla embraced. The non-profit foun-dation funds scholarships and other pro-grams dedicated to enriching the minds and spirits of children, and equipping families for a strong tomorrow. To register, visit the race website at, or call Maureen Barber, race media coordinator, at 389-7600. Registration is $25 for the run and $10 for the walk.

COMMENTARYWhen Gina Cavallaro flies into Florida from Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Nov. 12, the dark-eyed, dark-haired war correspon-dent with a soccer-mom look wont merely be promoting her book. Knowingly and coincidentally, Ms. Cavallaro will also be hosting an informal wake for Army Capt. Dan Eggers, a Green Beret. Dans wife, Major Rebecca Eggers, will fly in from her current duty station at the Pentagon, along with their two sons. His dad and mom, Bill (a Vietnam veteran) and Margaret, will attend, probably with several of his six brothers and sisters. Ms. Caval-laro will meet them all for the first time on Cape Corals Del Prado Boulevard South, at a store called One For The Books, right at 2 p.m. All of us should be there, too „ from Naples to Sarasota „ because all of us are part of that broad American family. Ms. Cavallaros unlikely book, Sniper: American Single-Shot Warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan,Ž bears a title so blunt and plain that it veils the sinewy, nuanced river of human experience she captures. That river of love and loss transects her brutal, beauti-ful stories of soldiers and Marines in battle from start to finish. One of those soldiers was Dan Eggers, who graduated from Cape Coral High School 18 years ago before becoming an alumnus of The Citadel, class of 97. His youngest sister, Rosie, 18, is now a cadet at her brothers famously rigorous alma mater. Capt. Eggers appears in Ms. Cavallaros book through the eyes of Army Master Ser-geant Jason Smith, a sniper, a fellow Green Beret and Dans closest friend. Then 28, he was killed instantly in an ambush by a daisy-chain of explosives embedded in the road while leading a mis-sion from the front, in a Humvee, on May 29, 2004. Three other team members riding with him died, too. Master Sgt. Smith traveled right behind them in another vehicle, one of four. Asking me not to use his real last name, he wrote last week from Afghanistan to describe his friend. Green Berets pride themselves in being the only guys that can completely immerse themselves in the locals environment. We deployed to Shinkay in March of 04 and Capt. Eggers immediately set out to do that. Dan was so immersed in their culture that he didnt even wear American clothes after a while. Didnt eat our food, in fact, he spent more time with the Afghans than he did with us. When we went to the Shuras (councils of Afghan lawmakers), Dans charm and personality would completely win over the locals. Trained as an Arabic speaker, he still had a good working knowledge of Pashto (the local tongue). He would go on with those folks for hours „ long after we were all bored and ready to go home!!! The guy honestly gave a shit about making their lives better. Help good guys, Kill bad guys. That is the mission and Dan was great at it.Ž His Special Forces team members were great at it, too. The (nine) Taliban that killed Dan died from American bullets by pissed off Green Berets later that day,Ž Master Sgt. Smith recalled in his email. Good, I say. I had never killed anyone before that day, (but) since then I have been lucky enough to shoot quite a few. In a weird kinda way that does make me feel better.Ž Such reflections suggest that Americans in war have changed little over time, in part because the terrible demands on them have not changed. The loneliness, the fear and the fighting is the same „ the shared misery of being at war together. None of thats ever going to change,Ž Ms. Cavallaro said when I called her Friday. They give their lives or they lose their families, so those sacrifices are the same (as they always have been) since the Roman legions. The stories in the book are from their point of view, the chaos of war.Ž Ms. Cavallaros uncompromising clarity is a tribute to the greatest American war correspondent, Ernie Pyle, who was killed by a sniper on Okinawa, in April 1945. Ernie Pyle will always be our beacon in this profession,Ž she explained. As a professional war correspondent for Gannetts Military Times Media Group, Ms. Cavallaro has been in and out of Afghani-stan and Iraq for nearly a decade, one of the few journalists to stay the course of the wars. Her obvious and measureless affection for the soldiers and Marines on the ground is not sentimental, and neither is she. The unflinching stories begin with her own harrowing loss „ the loss of Spc. Francisco Martinez, a soldier who became her friend before he was shot and mortally wounded by an enemy sniper as she stood next to him in the Five Kilo area of Rimadi, in Iraq, shortly after 3 p.m. on Palm Sunday, 2005. One moment she was living in a warm bright afternoon. The next moment she had forever inhabited a dark new world, while Spc. Martinez lay on his back near her, dying. I spoke to him in Spanish, my face a few inches from his, my left hand stroking his hair,Ž Ms. Cavallaro remembers in the books introduction. Squeeze my hand, I told him, aprietame la mano.Ž Look at me, I said, mirame.ŽDont fall sleep on me, I pleaded, no te me duermas.Ž Breathe, my l ove, r espira mi amor.Ž Johnson and I grew more desperate as he began to fade.Ž The shot that finally killed Paquito, as she called him affectionately, had been cata-strophic, ripping through Paquitos liver, a lung and a kidney, causing massive internal hemorrhage.Ž He remained alive and joking „ he was that tough „ for a couple of hours as medics and doctors tried to save him. But that shot also ripped through Paquitos family in Texas and Puerto Rico. Just as the explosives that killed Dan Eggers ripped through three generations of the Eggers clan on the Gulf coast of Florida and in Washington where his children are growing up without him. The Eggers loss is not only theirs, however „ he is also our loss. But in their love for him „ and in the extent to which we can acknowledge their loss and share it with them „ Dan Eggers is not only their gain, but ours.

When the British defeated the Chinese in the First Opium War, they imposed an indemnity, took Hong Kong and forced open more Chi-nese ports to British merchants. They demanded extraterritoriality for British citizens, exempting them from Chinese law. Other Western powers extracted similar privileges. When this wasnt enough, the British launched the Second Opium War after the Chinese seized a ship flying the British flag and refused to apolo-gize. The French joined in, and the two together captured Beijing, and burned the emperors summer palaces for good measure. The Chinese refer to the period from the middle of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th as the century of shame.Ž Now, the shame is all on their former tormentors as the Europeans beg the Chinese to help bail them out from their debt crisis. The Europeans share a misbegotten single currency that is amplifying the inherent problems attendant to the practice of spending money that you dont have. Perhaps the Greek crisis can be contained, but what if Spain and Italy spin out of control? Europe is trying to fund a bazookaŽ big enough to fend off doubtful markets, but doesnt want to „ and perhaps cant „ fund it all by itself. Germany is Europes economic powerhouse, yet its public debt-to-GDP ratio is already larger than ours. This is where China and its $3.2 trillion in foreign reserves come in. If China were to contribute to a bailout fund that Europe wants to build up to $1.4 trillion, it would surely ask for concessions in return, like the Europe-ans dropping their criticism of Chinas undervalued currency. China also might wonder why it should come to the res-cue of a European Union that still has it under an arms embargo. History comes full circle, with the ascendant Chinese in a position to extract concessions from erstwhile colonial powers. So far, though, Beijing is not showing any eagerness to jump into the Euro-pean bailout business. While it wants a robust European export market, China might be doing the math and realizing that Europe has a problem too big for serial bailouts. The official Xinhua News Agency ran a piece explaining, Amid such an unprecedented crisis in Europe, China can neither take up the role as a savior to the Europeans, nor provide a cure for the European malaise.Ž This reversal in fortunes was a long time in coming. Nothing could have stopped the Chinese from adopting more rational, market-friendly policies a few decades ago, and it has proven immune to appeals to allow its currency to appreciate so its exports dont have such an advantage. What Europe could control was its own destiny. It chose a comfortable, if bankrupting, social democracy and a vast experiment with a single cur-rency. The euro was supposed to be the vehicle and symbol of Europe as a world power, and instead is laying bare its debt-addled decay. For the United States, listing in a similar direction, the turnabout in Europes global position should be of the utmost interest „ as a cautionary tale. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.11-11-11 is not a variant of Herman Cains much-touted 9-9-9 tax plan, but rather the date of this years Veterans Day. This is especially relevant, as the U.S. has now entered its second decade of war in Afghanistan, the longest war in the nations history. U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are appear-ing more and more on the front lines „ the front lines of the Occupy Wall Street protests, that is. Video from the Occupy Oakland march on Tuesday, Oct. 25, looks and sounds like a war zone. The sound of gunfire is nearly constant in the video. Tear-gas projectiles were being fired into the crowd when the cry of Medic!Ž rang out. Civilians raced toward a fallen protester lying on his back on the pave-ment, mere steps from a throng of black-clad police in full riot gear, point-ing guns as the civilians attempted to administer first aid. The fallen protester was Scott Olsen, a 24-year-old former U.S. Marine who had served two tours of duty in Iraq. The publicly available video shows Olsen standing calmly alongside a Navy veteran holding an upraised Veterans for Peace flag. Olsen was wearing a desert camouflage jacket and sun hat, and his Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) T-shirt. He was hit in the head by a police projectile, most likely a tear-gas canister, suffering a fractured skull. As the small group of people gathered around him to help, a police officer lobbed a flashbang grenade directly into the huddle, and it exploded. Four or five people lifted Olsen and raced with him away from the police line. At the hospital, he was put into an induced coma to relieve brain swelling. He is now conscious but unable to speak. He communicates using a notepad. I interviewed one of Olsens friends, Aaron Hinde, also an Iraq War vet-eran. He was at Occupy San Francisco when he started getting a series of frenzied tweets about a vet down in Oakland. Hinde raced to the hospital to see his friend. He later told me a little about him: Scott came to San Francisco about three months ago from Wiscon-sin, where he actually participated in the holding of the State Capitol over there. Scotts probably one of the warm-est, kindest guys I know. Hes just one of those people who always has a smile on his face and never has anything negative to say. ... And he believed in the Occupy movement, because its very obvious whats happening in this country, espe-cially to us veterans. Weve had our eyes opened by serving and going to war overseas. So, theres a small contingency of us out here, and were all very moti-vated and dedicated.Ž As I was covering one of the Occupy Wall Street rallies in Times Square Oct. 15, I saw Sgt. Shamar Thomas become deeply upset. Police on horseback had moved in on protesters, only to be stopped by a horse that went down on its knees. Other officers had picked up metal barricades, squeezing the fright-ened crowd against steam pipes. Sgt. Thomas was wearing his desert cam-ouflage, his chest covered with medals from his combat tour in Iraq. He shouted at the police, denouncing their violent treatment of the protesters. Thomas later wrote of the incident: There is an obvious problem in the country and PEACEFUL PEOPLE should be allowed to PROTEST without Brutality. I was involved in a RIOT in Rutbah, Iraq 2004 and we did NOT treat the Iraqi citizens like they are treating the unarmed civil-ians in our OWN Country.Ž A group calling itself Veterans of the 99 Percent has formed, and with the New York City Chapter of IVAW set Nov. 2 as the day to march to Liberty Plaza to for-mally join and support the movement. Their announcement read: Veterans of the 99 Percent hope to draw attention to the ways veterans have been impacted by the economic and social issues raised by Occupy Wall Street. They hope to help make veterans and service mem-bers participation in this movement more visible and deliberate.Ž When I stopped by Occupy Louisville in Kentucky last weekend, the first two people I met there were veterans. One of them, Gary James Johnson, told me: I served in Iraq for about a year and a half. I joined the military because I thought it was my obligation to help protect this country. ƒ And right here, right now, this is another way I can help.Ž Pundits predict the cold weather will crush the Occupy movement. Ask any veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq about surviving outdoors in extreme weather. And consider the sign at Liberty Plaza, held by yet another veteran: 2nd time Ive fought for my country. 1st time Ive known my enemy.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 900 stations in North America.

PAGE 6 FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Pets of the Week To adopt or foster a pet PET TALES BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIts a fact of life that cats scratch, and its good for them to do so. But you dont have to live with shredded furniture or ratty-looking walls and flooring. Its easy to teach a cat to use a scratching post as long as you understand what hes looking for in the way of communication, claw condition-ing and fulfillment of his need to stretch and exercise. Scratching is first and foremost a means of communication. Your cat is saying, I, Purrcy, was here. Look how big I am, and how high up I can scratch.Ž Thats why cats like to scratch in places that will be seen by other cats; think of it as feline graffiti.Ž Scratching leaves traces of scent, undetect-able by people but perceptible to other cats, deposited from glands on the paws. We dont know exactly what message theyre sending, but its obviously impor-tant. So scratching on a post stuck off in a dark corner makes no sense to a cat. Hes going to look for an object to scratch that has a much more prominent place in his living area, and that may well be the arm of your sofa. Scratching also keeps claws and paws in shape. It sheds the dead keratin that sheathes the claws, making way for a new covering, and it exercises the muscles in the legs and paws that are so important to a cats agility. Stretching is a big part of scratching, and we all know how good that feels. So instead of trying to stop your cat from scratching, encourage him to scratch on objects that are conve-nient for you and attrac-tive to him. The best scratching post is tall enough for your cat to extend his body full-length when he scratches. A little one-footer might be OK for a kitten, but a full-grown cat needs a post that is at least three feet high to allow him to perform the stretches that are part of his enjoyment of scratching. The post can be upright or angled as long as its an appropriate length. You also need to think about whats covering the post. Forget car-pet! For one thing, cats dont see why the carpet on the post is okay to scratch but not the carpet on the floor. For another, materials like rope, sisal, hemp and burlap offer a lot more texture and shreddabil-ity, making them more pleasurable for the cat to scratch. You want him to think that the post, the cat tree and other acceptable scratching items „ hemp mats, for instance „ are so great that he doesnt even want to scratch anywhere else. Choose a sturdy post. The fastest way to turn your cat off of using a scratching post is to buy one that falls over on him while hes climbing or scratching on it. Provide more than one post „ and dont hide them away. Remember that cats like to show off their scratching prowess. If your cat is making his mark on a certain piece of furniture or pair of drapes, place the scratching post nearby so hell have a bet-ter option for giving his claws a workout. Put one in front of a window so your cat can check out the birds and squirrels while hes scratching. Encourage your cat to use the post by running your fingers up and down it or brushing a feather along the side of it. The motion will attract your cat and entice him to scratch. A little catnip, judiciously placed on top of the post and rubbed into the rope or sisal, may also gain his attention. Spraying the pheromone product Feliway on the object you want scratched really encourages its use, as well. Be sure to praise your cat or give him a treat every time you see him using the post. If you do your part and give your cat what he wants, hell do his and leave your things alone. Q >>Sheila is a 1-year-old spayed female pit bull mix. She weighs 61 pounds.

PAGE 8 FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 If you laid the green beans out endto-end, the vegetables would stretch for 36 miles. And one of the men cooking them up will be a Marine veteran. Three years ago he walked by the fire station with a bag on his back. He was home-less, he was hungry and he volunteered his help, working a string of 12-hour days, before he asked if he could eat. A shy man, he does not wish to be acknowledged. Just like the firefighter who thought up this Thanksgiving Day feast. Just like those who drive Bentleys and sign the donations. But this man, this man who was homeless for more than a decade, now has a job. He works full time at a Veterans Affairs clinic. He has an apartment and a car. An old, beat-up car, but a car. He has a scholarship, and hes struggling through college algebra. If he was the only reason weve done this for the last 20 years, thats good enough,Ž said Bill Tumulty, pastor of life missions at Christ Fellowship Church. Pastor Tumulty takes charge of all missions happening outside church walls, whether its a trip to Kenya or feeding the local homeless. He says he likes to have something going on every day of the year. Hes hard to catch on the phone. For 10 years, he has partnered with Big Heart Brigade. He maps the delivery of meals down to Homestead, up to Fort Pierce and all around Lake Okeechobee. He spends months negotiating the price of turkeys. He cooks different brands of stuffing to see which box yields more servings. And he says its all insane. Its a God-sized task, it makes no sense,Ž Pastor Tumulty said. But theres something magical, you know youre doing something not in the limits of human ability. People have to get along to do something bigger than them-selves.Ž Pastor Tumulty says last year 6,000 volunteers cooked 82,500 meals to be delivered on Thanksgiving Day, dish-ing up 13,048 gallons of gravy. He reels off these numbers without looking at a spreadsheet. Firefighter Dave DeRita puts the numbers into perspective. Its not about 82,500 meals. Its about two little kids and a single mom,Ž says Mr. DeRita, Palm Beach Gardens fire rescue division chief. Its one meal out of 365 days. You wish you could do more.Ž Mr. DeRita rarely grants interviews „ definitely no photographs „ he does not feed others for the recognition. His face reddens when he talks about what he does. Hes not blushing. Hes not nervous. Hes just self-conscious when it comes to compliments. Alright, heres a Big Heart story hes never told the news. A quick interlude from Thanksgiving „ a Christmas toy drive „ because Mr. DeRita said, If you get this right, youll get Big Heart Brigade.Ž He and a fellow firefighter had one more name on their list, but they were short a bag of gifts. A Walgreens man-ager told the two men to each grab a shopping cart, fill them up and get out of here.Ž The Brigades 1960 Dodge fire engine pulled up to the Jensen Beach home and hit the siren, just as the mother was trying to figure out how to tell her two children, sometimes even good kids get missed on Christmas.ŽTears and tattoosIts these stories that bring firefighters to tears and tattoos. Mr. DeRita has heard sniffling over the gears of that old fire truck, even with the windows down. The men in the passenger seat are big and bald and ink the Brigade heart on their arms, living out the motto, Com-ing to the rescue.Ž Back to Thanksgiving, the heart of Big Heart. This all started in Stuart. Wandering around his fathers car dealership, Mr. DeRita noticed someone was using their hose, and soap was missing from their wash rack. He asked his dad if he should secure it. No, make sure they have fresh soap and towels,Ž said his dad, Tom DeRita. Young Dave deduced a homeless family was living in the woods behind the dealership. Dad, we need to do some-thing for these people. We need to cook for them.Ž That was in 1992. Tom DeRita looked at his boy and said, You call Mom, tell her were gonna serve up Thanksgiv-ing.Ž The Big Heart Brigade spread down to Palm Beach Gardens in 1997. In the past three years its scope has doubled, serving roughly 50,000 meals in 2008, striving to serve 100,000 in 2011. But before it felt overwhelming, before it felt exponential, Tom DeRita remem-bers when it first felt humble. There stood his family, not having to think about their next meal, feeding people who had nothing, people who had fought for their country. Theyre thanking us, and yet theyve given their lives,Ž he said. The least we can do is cook them a nice meal.ŽRaising the money himselfWhen he thinks of war veterans, or homes with no water, or children with no shoes „ all things hes seen through his Big Heart mission „ he picks up his phone. He raises 80 percent of the money we need literally by himself,Ž says his son. But he wont tell you that,Ž then jesting, See where it comes from?Ž The Brigade has costs down to just less than $1.50 a meal. Add some zeros, because the Brigade needs $150,000 to meet its goal. Tom DeRita will not know if he has enough money until after the Lexus Taste at Downtown at the Gar-dens on Nov. 10, the primary fundrais-ing event for his Thanksgiving dinner drive. He explains this, holding his cell phone in his hand, ready to receive all calls and contributions. He must clarify, the Big Heart Brigade has no paid staff. Every dollar the nonprofit receives goes back to the community. Pastor Tumulty may have said it best, You give us a dollar and a dollar goes to feed a homeless guy liv-ing under a bridge.Ž When someone offers to write Pete Bergel a check, the president of Big Heart Brigade and the fire chief of Palm Beach Gardens says, Come on out to the station and see it. Then write me a check.ŽAssembly linePotential donors see assembly lines „ turkey, stuffing, sweet corn, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry, pump-kin bread. They see the wealthy asked to empty grease drains, nodding back to firefighters, You got it.Ž They see children making paper placemats, trac-ing their hands into turkeys and person-alizing crayoned messages like, God loves you.Ž Suddenly, it feels less like charity and more like Thanksgiving. A check for hundreds may turn into a check for thousands. Its so affluent here, people dont realize the need, people dont see it,Ž Chief Bergel said. In Palm Beach Gar-dens all you sees luxury cars and beau-tiful homes. No soup kitchens here. People dont have a clue.Ž To help visualize the aim of the Brigade, Chief Bergel puts it like this, Its like going down to Dolphins stadium and feeding every person there when the stadiums full.Ž The chief has a rasp to his voice. He has a scar between his brows and a dimple in his chin. When he hears the words pumpkin bread,Ž his eyes light up. Betty Fiebig oversees the ladies who mix the batter and cut pumpkin bread into 100,000 brownie-sized squares, individually wrapping them and freez-ing them. She says her group used to be all elders of Christ Fellowship Church, but this year young women are volun-teering, and theyre bringing their chil-dren. Brigade bakers range in age from 6 years old to 90-something. We do it with purpose,Ž said Mrs. Fiebig. More than baking bread, its a ministry.Ž She shares her stories of serving food to the homeless through St. Georges Episcopal Church in Riviera Beach. She tells the women of families „ mothers and fathers who come in with three or four little ones „ they may have a job, they may have an apartment, but after paying rent and utilities, they dont have enough left over for food. Yes, there are those who appear to be drunk, says Mrs. Fiebig, but there are pregnant girls too, young women with brand new babies, women out on the street, who sleep on the ground. These are the ones who break her heart. She tells their stories to her circle, so her ladies can picture the faces of those theyre baking for. The women listen, then sing hymns as they bake, old hymns like How Great Thou ArtŽ and Every Day with Jesus,Ž all the while mixing love and intention into their eggless batter of pumpkin and applesauce, cinnamon and raisin. Chief Bergel has seen the realities Mrs. Fiebig has seen, and if he had his way, everyone else would too. So many people here just dont have a clue, they just dont have a clue,Ž he said. The best thing for these people would be to BRIGADEFrom page 1 FLORIDA WEEKLY PHOTOABOVE: Palm Beach Gardens Fire Chief Peter Bergel, who also is president of the Big Heart Brigade, preps a smoker for Thanksgiv-ing turkeys.LEFT: Tom DeRita was inspired by his son to found the Big Heart Brigade in 1992.

Her husband once knocked on a door, the older woman who answered was in a wheelchair. Her home was dark. She asked them to please pray for her, she lived alone with no water and no electric. Another knock on another door answered by a man holding an infant. He handed over his baby pleading, Please pray for blessings over my child.Ž We cannot imagine our Thanksgiving without going to Belle Glade,Ž Mrs. Hurley said. Thats what our Thanks-giving is.Ž Ask her 7-year-old son whats his favorite time of year. He will not say Christmas, he will not say his birthday, he says, November, when we pass out food.Ž Her 4-year-old carries meals to other children. Children can be scared of tak-ing food from adults,Ž she said. When a child hands a meal to another child, they feel comfortable. They run inside and grab a toy. They run back out like they want to play. In their own way, its like theyre relaying, they understand what happened.Ž Driving on the outskirts of Belle Glade one holiday, her family was once a little lost. We asked the Lord, lead us where we need to go. Drive the car. Take us where people need food.Ž The Hurleys came across a trailer park, all dirt, no road. A Hispanic fam-ily answered the door. They broke into to tears and said in broken English, Thank you so much, we had no food.Ž The trailer next door was boiling water in a pot on a grill. There were seven or eight people living in that small trailer,Ž Mrs. Hurley said. She remembers children running after them, after passing out the food, two pieces of hot corn in paper towels in their hands, For you, for you.Ž Oh, no thank you,Ž Mrs. Hurley told them. No, no, please. Por favor, por favor,Ž the children said. All we have. We give you.Ž Chief Bergel would like to see this reflected. The way he was raised, if you have something to give, you give it away. In Palm Beach Gardens, were all so blessed,Ž he said. I think its incumbent upon us to give back.Ž This Thanksgiving, five more friends have asked to accompany Mrs. Hurley and her family. This Thanksgiving, Big Heart Brigade will attempt to provide nearly 20,000 more meals. Firefighter Dave DeRita will spend six straight days smoking turkeys on rotisseries. Hell go home and his wife will ask him to prepare a 23-pound turkey for their 18 guests. Hell scrub and scrub in the shower and still smell of turkey. Then his dad will throw out some inconceivable number for next year. He cant help but ask, Where does it stop?Ž Atlanta and Washington, D.C. have contacted the Brigade requesting, Please, send meals up here.Ž And if it were up to Tom DeRita, they would. His ultimate goal, he thinks hes going to have an emergency response, commissary vehicle,Ž said his son. Were talking 18 wheels,Ž where he can pull up, and wheel out Thanksgiving. Dave DeRita too, would like to see Big Heart swell. He invites other cit-ies to come down, look to Palm Beach Gardens as a model, learn it, learn how to cook the meals, learn how to acquire the food. Cops and firemen volunteer their time, its what we do,Ž he said. We help you. And there are cops and firemen in every town, I dont mean for it to sound cheesy, but theyre out there. And we can teach them all.Ž Likewise, he invites the community to stop by, Give one hour and you can say youve been a part of this, for an hour of your time.Ž Even though hes thought of quitting 100 times, standing amid the circus of what has become the turkey tent, Dave DeRita says the Big Heart Brigade will never end, no matter how bad the economy gets.Ž He thinks of his exhaustion, then its like he does what his Dad does, he climbs up that 100-foot fire engine ladder, looks down and sees what he calls his Dads baby,Ž sees hundreds of hands cooking thousands of meals, and realizes he will never know the extent of their reach.

PAGE 16 FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Ten years is a long time in the life of any organization but particularly when it comes to being a nonprofit. The road is arduous to becoming an effective, well-managed organization that consistently attracts the financial sup-port necessary to sustain its activities over many years. The journey starts out simple enough: an idea comes to life in the mind and heart of an individual struck as if by lightening. It is hard to say what might prompt such an epiphany. Some-times it is the result of seeing something gone terribly wrong that a person feels urgently must be made right. Sometimes its being at an intersection where hope meets opportunity and a creative force is unleashed that grows exponentially. The chemistry of this combustion is a marvel to behold. The Tea Party Move-ment and Occupy Wall Street are recent bursts of populism. Both are fed by the desire of many to express a personal statement that can be heard with greater resonance and on a grander scale. Struc-ture and organization sl owly emerge from the primordial soup of public rancor to achieve the form and the momentum of a public life. Nonprofits, by comparison, may have a more modest genesis given they are about a charitable purpose in service to communities of need. A single aspi-ration becomes the aspiration of many when people commonly share enthusiasm and energy for accomplishing something together. If this raw energy is successfully channeled toward the creation of a plan and the development of an organization, it is because a shared community of inter-est and place are its fundamental organiz-ing principle. No matter how it begins, the grassroots birth of a non-profit organization that achieves over time leadership and community change is no small accom-plishment. Many nonprofits thrive for a short while, only to fade with the passing of time. Organizations arent static, any more than the community where an orga-nization takes root. The test of time is a great leveler once you get past founding members. This past year, the IRS elimi-nated the tax-exempt status of thousands of charities that have fallen into obscu-rity and inactivity, their original purpose no longer tenable, whether by action or default. Nonprofits that flourish over the years are worthy of celebration and last week, one took the time to reflect upon the achievement of its 10th anniversary. The agency has focused over the last decade like a laser beam on providing educational opportunities for children. Its track record of accomplishments during this time is impressive. Prime Time Palm Beach County is a non-profit organization that serves afterschool programs and pro-vides professional development for teach-ers and practitioners. Prime Time pro-vides support and resources that increase the educational quality of programming for school-age youth. The organization came into being in the mid-1990s, when key stakeholders recognized that the afterschool programs in Palm Beach County could be better served if they organized to strengthen the quality of their services. The Out-of-School Consortium was formed in 1996 and initial partners and funders included the Childrens Services Council of Palm Beach County, the School District of Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County Department of Parks and Recreation, the U.S. Department of Education, The Mary and Robert Pew Public Education Fund and the John D. and Catherine T. MacAr-thur Foundation. This brief history masks how very much more complicated the story really is. It is one thing to create an organization and entirely another to find the staying power that Prime Times 10-year history now reflects. The root of the organiza-tions success was attributed to the fact that, as one person put it, those who first gathered to consider the opportunity agreed not to give up, no matter what. The steel of that resolve has paid big dividends over the years for the benefit of thousands of school-age children and the caring adults who teach them. Now, 10 years later, Prime Times 15 trainers/providers have served more than 31,000 youth and nearly 2,500 adults who work with kids to enhance their education and life experiences. There are many reasons for Prime Times success but it takes more than just good ingredients to make a cake. Dedica-tion and community leadership provide the hot rizeŽ needed if good intentions, well mixed, are to reach the full glory and height of excellence on a plate. By that measure, Prime Time Palm Beach County is one very fine piece of cake. 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 Matt was trembling with rage. Once again, his father had humiliated him in front of the entire staff. Matt had proposed a carefully thought out recommendation for a new project, and his father had dis-missed his suggestion without giving him the opportunity to fully explain his ideas. Matt (not his real name) had joined the family business eight years ago right after graduating from college. He knew going in that his father could be overbearing and liked to be in control, but he never envisioned he would feel so unhappy and demeaned. The problem was that Matt had trouble speaking up in a way that proved to be effective. He would explode unreason-ably, openly sulk or stew in silence. What he had previously considered to be a fairly good relationship with his father had deteriorated to a superficial, often sarcastic, interaction. There were times he became so frustrated he had consid-ered quitting but he had always stopped himself because he knew it would be fool-hardy when he had a family to support. Something had to change. Matts struggle is not an uncommon one in families, whether family members work with each other or just face the day-to-day challenges that come up. Finding the voiceŽ to speak calmly and clearly to another person at difficult times is a chal-lenge that does not come easily for most people. Invariably, when we are uncom-fortable or in disagreement, we react in predictable ways, often pushing each others b uttonsŽ and losing the ability to come to reasonable resolutions. We may say nothing but let our disgruntlement show in other ways. We may avoid the other person and totally hold our feelings in. We may let them know indirectly that were upset, by our tone of voice or hurt demeanor. Or we may explode so inappro-priately that those around us dismiss us as irrational and dont take us seriously. So how do we break a pattern that causes distress and frustration and devel-op a style of relating that communicates what is truly important to us and has the best chance of getting through to the other person? First, we must step away from the stressful situation and give ourselves the oppor-tunity to truly reflect on what is going on. If we are so focused on blaming the other person for all the heartache they are caus-ing us, we lose an important opportunity to fairly assess the situation. Its impor-tant for all of us to remember that when we accuse or blame another person they invariably become defensive and tune us out or attack back. Thats the surest way for a conversation to deteriorate to an ugly confrontation. If we are able to sincerely state whats important to us and how we are feeling, taking responsibility for our own part of the disagreement, we have our best shot at making an impact. Learning how to speak upŽ often takes some effort and may not feel comfortable at first. Importantly, we may also conclude that the situation is hopeless and there is nothing we can do to make things better. In Matts case, if he werent so angry at his father he might have been able to see the proposal from all angles, and even consider the possibility that his fathers position had some merit. Giving himself the chance to calm down and consider all his options might enable Matt to find the voiceŽ to speak up directly to his father. After one par-ticularly distressing blow-up, Matt took the plunge and decided to approach his father differently. He asked to speak to his father privately, making sure it was a time neither of them would be distracted by outside pressures. Dad, Im very unhappy about the way you and I have been handling a lot of the situations that come up at work. Our rela-tionship is important to me and I dont want to undermine things in any way. Im very proud of our company and would like to make important contributions. I know that I may have a lot to learn, and some of my ideas might not always be realistic, but it would mean a lot to me if you would seriously consider what I have to say, and give me your feedback, pro or con. I know I can get hotheaded, but I will work on listening more carefully to your opinions as well. I would appreciate if you would consider my feelings when you speak to me. I think it would also be important that we both consider what we say to each other when the other employees are in earshot.Ž There will be those who think that Matts statement sounded contrived and unrealistic. Obviously, each person must modify his message to one that feels sin-cere. Whats important to note is that Matt started his conversation positively. He clearly stated that his goal was to maintain a good relationship with his father. He spoke with humility, but at the same time did not put himself down. He expressed a willingness to hear feedback, and a wish to be collaborative. Now, just because Matt was taking steps to handle his angst in a new way (that made sense to him) did not guarantee his father would respond the way Matt want-ed. His father was much more accustomed to complaints or sarcasm and was taken aback when spoken to so directly. And obviously, one conversation will not undo months and years of a contentious inter-action. Sometimes family members are accustomed to the way things have always been and are resistant to the changes. Matt discovered that he had to be realistic and patient, if he and his father were to make inroads in their relationship. As Matt began to speak up more assertively about his ideas, he discovered that others in the office were taking notice and were relating in a more positive, respect-ful way. Matt also learned some important things about himself: When a person feels more in control of negative emotions, they often have a greater sense of clarity and confidence.

K. Adam Lee, M.D., a board certified thoracic surgeon and pioneer in robotic assisted lung cancer surgery, is medical director of the new Thoracic Surgery and Lung Center, which expands the scope of JMCs Ella Milbank Foshay Can-cer Center. Knowing that over 80 percent of lung cancers have a chance to be cured if detected and treated early, weve assem-bled a brain trust of specialists and armed them with the latest technology, such as low dose spiral CT screening,Ž said John Couris, JMC president and CEO, in a prepared statement. Under Dr. Lees direction, weve mar-shaled all the resources it will take to create a true center of excellence in treating diseases of the chest and lung.Ž The National C ancer Instit utes 2010 National Lung Screening Trial results showed 20 percent fewer lung cancer deaths among high-risk patients who were screened with low-dose spiral CT technology than with chest x-ray. Recently the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer advised physicians to discuss the NLST results and CT screening with high-risk patients. JMCs program streamlines diagnosis and coordinates treatment. The center will evaluate each patient and, if need-ed, perform CT scan, radiologic tests or biopsy within 24 to 48 hours, according to Dr. Lee. Treatment will typically be provided within two weeks, he added. Dr. Lee was the first physician in Florida to perform robotic assisted thoracic surgery and was among the states earli-est adopters of video assisted thoras-copic surgery for lobectomies. Certified in cardiothoracic and general surgery, he earned his medical degree from New York Medical College and completed residencies at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York and at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. He established his practice in South Florida as a leading cardiotho-racic surgeon with Cleveland Clinic, Memorial Healthcare System and Jupi-ter Medical Center before moving to the mid-Atlantic region six years ago. Most recently, Dr. Lee served as medical director of thoracic surgery and robotic surgery at Kennedy University Hospital in Voorhees, N.J., and was a clinical associate professor of surgery at the University of Medicine and Den-tistry of New Jersey…School of Medi-cine.

MONEY & INVESTINGThe connection between crude and foodEnergy is a huge component of the U.S. economy and of any industrialized econo-my. It also accounts for 12 percent of the market capitalization of the S&P 500, 70 percent of the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index and, most likely, is a position traded long or short in a diversified managed futures portfolio. In fact, a market recap on the close of any day will generally include the stock indices and select commodities, especially U.S. crude. In recent months, crude has been highly correlated in price movement with the S&P 500; when crude is up, often so has been the S&P and vice versa. Crude is a com-modity which, like copper, is a bellweather of international economic activity. World GDP looking stronger? Then, copper and crude will generally be looking stronger, and equity indices would be stronger. Crude is a commodity in limited supply but facing increasing demand. Secondary and tertiary recovery techniques in the U.S. are helpful to get more crude out of exist-ing wells, but just on the margin. Big shale natural gas discoveries in the U.S. have dramatically increased supply of natural gas but they have not changed U.S. dependency on crude used in gasoline. Longer term, unless there is a major energy breakthrough outside of fossil fuels, the U.S. will continue to be dependent on foreign crude for a sig-nificant portion of its gasoline needs. As to foreign supply, some of the worlds largest existing crude reserves and recent crude discoveries are in countries and locations that entail great geopolitical risk. Demand for foreign crude will be largely a function of developing countries growth, e.g. growth in China and India as they are key buyers of crude on the margin. Besides these well-known macro supply and demand factors for crude, some lesser-acknowledged issues might have a big impact on crude prices: the political concerns within the Arab states. The rul-ers of many of these states dont want a repeat of the 2011 Arab Spring in 2012 or beyond. They dont want to be overthrown, too. And so preventive measures are being taken to placate its citizens. As you might recall, 2011 saw the liberation of citizens of several Arab coun-tries and one such liberation introduced serious military actions against Muam-mar Gaddafi and his supporters in Libya. Egypt had a major overthrow of its repres-sive government after the struggles that started in Yemen. Some would argue that the popular movements were ignited by spontaneous political courage and organization through Facebook postings. Others would argue that these liberating movements really found their courage to face oppressive military forces after food prices had skyrocketed in 2010, to a point, that by 2010 year end, year-over-year food price changes were as much as 25 percent in some of the developing countries. It was tough for citizens to swallow such an increase if 50-70 percent of their income was allocated to food for their families. Very hungry people tend to find courage that they previously lacked when their stomachs were full. What has happened in Egypt, Yemen and Libya is not lost on sister countries. The common theme of these countries is a delivery of economic relief to its citi-zens; spending a little more money seems like a really good idea when the alterna-tive is potential political uprising. A sample of ruling government actions to prevent more Arab Springs is as fol-lows: Saudi Arabia is to spend $43 billion on its citizens; Kuwait gave citizens free food for one year and a special one-time lump of cash; Algerias civil servants received an increase in pay over 30 per-cent; UAE upped its infrastructure spend-ing; civil servants in Qatar received a big salary increase; and Egypt got $24 billion (combined) from several Arab states to help fund the new Egypt. Now, a one-time stipend might not leave the ruling class feeling pinched, but the reality is that one dosage generally leads to two to three to more and over time, impacting national budgets. Over time, these countries may possibly seek higher crude export prices to balance their national budgets. If there was a sudden drop in food prices, which alleviates pressure on the Arab citizenry, Arab government subsi-dies and salary increases might be mini-mized. But, so far in 2011, significantly lower agricultural commodity prices are not very probable. And, as the southern hemisphere countries enter their plant-ing season, international weather patterns seem to remain challenged. Availability and pricing of crude and agricultural commodities will probably remain a critical element of world eco-nomics and world politics and will be a key component behind international equity market valuations for a long time to come. For investors counting on political stability in the Middle East, the deciding factor will not be the size of the ruling partys military nor communications through Face-book; it will be whether the people in these countries have food. The world is not just looking at a growing population and more hungry mouths; the equity markets are looking at oil-exporting regimes want-ing to assure their continued reigns and which will have no alternative but to pay any price for food and any price for agricul-tural lands. Price might ration some com-modities, but food is not one of them. Q „ Jeannette Rohn Showalter, CFA, can be reached at (239) 571-8896.

The grant, called The Lois Kwasman Program for Community Impact, was created by Executive Women Outreach, the charitable foundation arm of Execu-tive Women of the Palm Beaches. The $20,000 grant, payable over two years, was established to provide fund-ing to non-profit organizations that assist girls and young women, ages 11-21, in Palm Beach County. The Kwasman Program is named in memory of Lois Kwasman, who was an EWPB board member and community leader. Julie Swindler, CEO of Families First of Palm Beach County, accepted the first $10,000 check on behalf of the organization. The grant will be fund-ing the Targeted Outreach for Pregnant Women Act (TOPWA) program that serves young women, ages 13 to 19, who may be pregnant and/or at risk for HIV and substance abuse. The goals are to reduce the risk of HIV transmission to newborns, lower the risk of substance exposure, and reduce endangerment to newborns. We want these young women to stay healthy, stay in school, have healthy babies, learn how to be a good parent and continue to further their own goals and to sustain themselves,Ž Ms. Swin-dler said. This grant will enable us to continue our work and help close the gap in our funding. It is an answer to our prayers.Ž At the awards luncheon, Executive Women also introduced the recipients of college scholarships, which are awarded annually to outstanding women pur-suing their advanced education. Five recipients were present and recognized including Natalie Diaz, Szilvi Gagyi, Kari Lambrechts and Christina Zarrilli „ all attending Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Elaine Myrick-Bey, Palm Beach State College. Ms. Myrick-Bey, the mother of a college student, gave a speech about her life and what the scholarship meant to her. Last years Kwasman recipient, Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County, received its second $10,000 check for its Keyboards for Kids girls program. Accepting the check was Carl Boldin, club director.

Our ancestors did not use poison, but they had a way to keep the ants away from their food. They made ant traps of pottery or glass designed to keep ants from climbing up the legs of a kitchen or dining room table. The trap was shaped like a tube pan. The legs of the table were inserted in the center hole in the pan, and kerosene or turpentine was poured into the canal.Ž The ants could not safely travel across the liquid. But the kitchen probably smelled like a chemical plant. One set of four pottery traps, one for each table leg, sold last year at the Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society auction. It was attributed to the J.G. Baynham shop because of the glaze used on the traps. They were made in about 1900. Each trap is 7 inches wide, so it might trip unwary children reaching for food. But the idea of a dish of liquid around a table leg to discourage crawl-ing bugs is still useful. Q: We live in Minnesota, where its very cold in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. Whats the best way to store card-board boxes of collectibles to prevent mold and mildew? A: Store cardboard boxes in a dry place. Cardboard absorbs moisture. The basement may be too damp, unless a dehumidifier is used to keep the humidity between 45 per-cent and 65 percent. If the box has already begun to mildew, you may notice a white powdery substance on it. You can remove the mildew by wiping it off with a sponge dipped in a mixture of one part chlorine bleach to four parts water. Wring out the sponge until its almost dry and then wipe the mildew off the box. Rinse with a sponge dipped in clean water and wrung out. Then put the box in the sun to dry. Q: I have an old Lassie metal ring. It has a portrait of the famous col-lie with an LŽ on either side of her head. Its in very good condition. Is it possible for you to put a price on this? I have been unable to locate anything regarding price or past sales. A: Your ring was a premium distributed by the Campbell Soup Co., sponsor of the LassieŽ TV series. The original series ran from Sept. 12, 1954, to March 24, 1973. The ring was featured in an episode in January 1958. It has been estimated that more than 77,000 rings were given out as premiums. Occasionally the rings show up for sale online. You can find out more about Lassie collectibles on the website Q: My brother bought a porcelain traveling tea service for two at the Gloria Swanson estate sale in 1983. It is decorated with the Napoleonic emblem, gold bees and gold rims. The tray has an NŽ in a wreath in the center. The tray and two saucers are marked in red with a crown over an NŽ on the back. The traveling case is made of wood. The case fell apart, so I glued it back together. Inside the case, theres a gold pillow that lies over the top of the china to protect it when the case is closed. Im interested in the history of this set. Was it made for Napoleon, or was it just a commemorative piece? A: Your traveling set was not made for Napoleon, but it is decorated with Napole-onic elements. Bees were part of Napoleons heraldic emblem. One story says that he didnt want to spend the money to redeco-rate when he moved into the Royal Palace. He didnt like the draperies decorated with fleur-de-lis, the French Royal emblem, so he hung them upside down, which made the fleur-de-lis look like bees. A good story, but he may have chosen the bee because its a symbol of industriousness, immortality and power. The crown over NŽ mark was used on Capo-di-Monte porcelain. It was made in Naples, Italy, from 1743 to 1759 and in Madrid, Spain, from 1771 to 1821. The molds and mark were sold and the mark is being used today by Societa Ceramica Richard of Milan, Italy. The sets value is helped because it belonged to Gloria Swanson, but its hurt because of the repairs. Q: I have a mantle clock made by the Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. It has a cranberry-colored glass case. Its engraved Pat. Dec. 23, 1902Ž on the bottom, where there are also other num-bers I cant make out. The back is engraved Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn., USA.Ž The clock has been in my family for many years. Id like more information about it. A: William Lewis Gilbert and his brotherin-law, George Marsh, founded Marsh, Gil-bert & Co. in 1828. The company changed owners and Connecticut locations several times during the years it was in business. The name was changed several times, too, but always included the name Gilbert.Ž The Dec. 23, 1902, patent was for a beat adjuster for pendulum clocks. In about 1910, Gilbert made a model called OrleansŽ that had a glass case. Gilbert also made clocks with cases made of china, metal or wood. During World War II, when metal was scarce, papier-mache cases were made. The company was bought by General Computing Machines Co. in 1957 and was sold again in 1964. A Gilbert clock with a glass case is worth about $800. Tip: Dont use cooking oil to polish furniture, cutting boards or even wooden salad bowls. The oil eventually will become rancid, the wood will stink and the bowl could even contaminate food. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 A21 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATESaddam Hussein’s unfortunate doppelgnger Q Mohamed Bishr, an Egyptian man bearing a remarkable resemblance to the late Iraqi dictator, claimed in October that he had been briefly kid-napped after spurning an offer to portray Saddam in a porn video. Mr. Bishr's adult sons told the al-Ahram newspaper in Alexandria that their father had been offered the equivalent of $330,000. (In 2002, according to a 2010 Washington Post report, the CIA briefly contemplated using a Saddam impersonator in a porn video as a tool to publicly embarrass Saddam into relinquishing power prior to the U.S. invasion.) Q Can't possibly be true Q Apparently, officials at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport felt the need for professional guidance on rebranding their facility to (as one put it) carry it into the modern era,Ž and so hired the creative talents of Big Communications of Birmingham, Ala., to help. Big's sug-gested name for the airport, announced to great fanfare in September: Chatta-nooga Airport.Ž Q Elsie Pawlow, a senior citizen of Edmonton, Alberta, filed a $100,000 lawsuit in September against Kraft Can-ada Inc., parent company of the makers of Stride Gum, which brags that it is ridiculously long-lasting.Ž Ms. Pawlow complained that she had to scrub down her dentures after using Stride, to dig outŽ specks of gum „ a condition that caused her to experience depression for approximately 10 minutes.Ž Q Colleen O'Neal filed a lawsuit recently against United/Continental airlines over the post traumatic stress disorderŽ she said she has suffered since a 20-minute flight in October 2009 „ in which, during turbulent weather, the plane bankedŽ from side to side and lost altitude. Q In August, a state court in Frankfurt, Germany, awarded 3,000 euros (about $4,200) to Magnus Gaefgen, 36, on his claim that during a 2002 police interrogation, officers threat(ened) ... violenceŽ against him if he did not disclose what he knew about a missing 11-year-old boy who was later found dead. In 2003, Mr. Gaefgen was convict-ed of the boy's murder and is serving a life sentence, but the court nevertheless thought he should be compensated for his pain and suffering.Ž Q Names in the newsThe man stabbed to death in Calgary, Alberta, in August: the 29-year-old Mr. Brent Stabbed Last. Among the family members of Jared Loughner (the man charged with shooting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in January) who were interviewed by authorities regarding mental illnesses in the Loughner family: Loughner's dis-tant cousin Judy Wackt. Passed away in May in Fredericksburg, Va.: retired Army Sgt. Harry Palm. Charged with murder in Decatur, Ill., in September: a (predictably under-respected) 15-year-old boy named Shitavious Cook. Q Implants in the news Q The British recreation firm UK Paintball announced in August that a female customer had been injured after a paintball shot hit her in the chest, causing her silicone breast implant to explode.Ž The company recommended that paint-ball facilities supply better chest protec-tion for women with implants. Q The Moscow, Russia, newspaper M oskovsky Komsomolets reported in October that a local woman's life had been saved by her state-of-the-artŽ sili-cone breast implant. Her husband had stabbed her repeatedly in the chest during a domestic argument, but the implant's gel supposedly deflected the blade. Q Ultimate catfighting Q In Charlotte, N.C., in October, a female motorist was arrested for ramming another woman's car after that woman said Good morningŽ to the motorist's boyfriend as the women dropped kids off at school. Q In Arbutus, Md., in October, a woman w as arr ested for throwing bleach and disinfectant at another woman in a Walmart (an incident in which at least 19 bystanders sought medical assistance). Police learned that the arrestee's child's father had become the boyfriend of the bleach-targeted woman. Q In a hospital in Upland, Pa., in October t wo pregnant women (ages 21 and 22) were arrested after injuring a woman, 36, and a girl, 15, in a brawl inside a patients room. Q North Korea cruisin’The North Koreans called it a cruise shipŽ and tried to establish a business model to attract wealthy tourists from China, but to the New York Times reporter on board in September, the 40-year-old boat was more like a tramp steamerŽ on which vacationersŽ paid the equivalent of $470 to "enjoy" five days and nights at sea. More than 200 people boarded the dimŽ and mustyŽ vessel, sometimes eight to a room with floor mattressesŽ and iffy bathrooms. The onboard entertainmentŽ consisted not of shuffleboard but of decks of cardsŽ and karaoke. Dinner resembled a mess hall at an American Army base,Ž but with leftovers thrown overboard (even though some of it was blown back on deck). The trip was capped, wrote the Times, by the boat's crashing into the pier as it docked, knocking a corner of the structure into a pile of rubble.Ž Q Medi-Weightloss Clinics is a physician-supervised,three-phase weight loss program that works.

PAGE 24 FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 In most divorce cases money is the centrally disputed issue. In any given divorce case the issues of equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, alimony, child support, and of course whos going to pay for the attorneys fees and costs incurred by both sides, are all about money. When dealing with financial issues in a divorce people usually have two distinct points of view. I affectionately label these points of view as the Stick-lerŽ and AdjusterŽ perspectives. Sticklers want to make sure that no stone is left unturned so they get every penny theyre entitled to. They are less concerned with the final result than with making certain that they are not taken advantage of. Alternatively, the Adjuster wants to find an expedited big-pictureŽ solu-tion, and is more interested in a rea-sonable settlement. The Adjuster is generally willing to take less to avoid confrontation. There are plenty of people who occupy the middle ground between these perspectives, however most people tend to trend one way or the other. While there is nothing wrong with either point of view, as a general rule the Stickler should be prepared to spend substantially more money on a divorce. As a divorce lawyer it is my job to act as a human barometer in the initial consultation, predicting what is likely to happen if the case was to go to trial. This is important because if you do not know what is likely to happen in court, you do not know what would be a rea-sonable settlement. Pay close attention, I used the word reasonable, not fair. One of the biggest hurdles for most people is the exclusion of the word fair from their divorce vocabulary. Web-sters defines the word fair as, free from bias, dishonesty, or injustice; legit-imately sought done, given, etc.; proper under the rules.Ž The reality is that people going through a divorce rarely share the same perspective about much of anything, particularly about money. Fairness is completely subjective, and as such is not a realistic goal in divorce. Realism on the other hand contemplates an objective look at ones situation. It has been said that money is the root of all evil. It has also been said that money makes the world go round. Either way, there is no question that money is a deeply important part of all of our lives. But there is more to money than just the obvious. Somehow money seems to touch almost every aspect of our lives. There is no end to facets of the human condition that we can tie to money issues: joy, expectation, worry, anger, love, hate, c onfusion and motivation. To quote Cyndi Lauper, moneyƒ changes everything.Ž In the context of a divorce, the financial issues of the case end up being a battlefield for many of the longstanding psychological and emotional issues that divided the couple to begin with. Alimony is one of the most contentious issues. One of the reasons it is so contentious is that there are no specific guidelines as to whether alimony is appropriate, how much alimony should be paid, and for how long. When alimony might be appropriate in a case there are two absolutes, which are that no one wants to pay it and everyone wants to receive it. Equitable distribution, or dividing stuff in laypersons terms, is a differ-ent animal altogether. In this instance people are arguing about the division and value of assets and liabilities. In Florida while there is a presumption that assets and liabilities should be divided equally, the courts do have the ability to divide them unequally. It is important to remember that we are still essentially talking about money. Most things are replaceable, and while it shouldnt matter whether you get a par-ticular asset or its financial equivalent, somehow it does. Once while attending mediation, my client sent word to her husband that she would either buy or sell a particular asset for a particular price. At the time I recall thinking that she had just indis-putably set the fair market value. When her husband refused the deal, I realized what the true lesson was. Sometimes, it just isnt about the money and sometimes it is. Q Kenneth A. Gordon is a partner in the law firm Brinkley Morgan.

D aniel Biaggi wants to celebrate. Its the 50th anniversary of Palm Beach Opera, and as general director, Mr. Biaggi wants to engage the community. We really realized what we wanted to give the community is a chance to be part of the 50th anniversary festivities,Ž he says. That means instead of having one big gala event, the opera will have two. We simply could have had a fund-raising gala on the island,Ž he says of past galas held in Palm Beach. We could have had one fund-raising concert with highly elevated ticket sales, but I think that creates some-what great excitement, but a 50th anniversary to me is about the com-munity that has taken this company all the way to 50.Ž The company will still have a gala performance on Jan. 20, in which major patrons get to shine along with such opera stars as Ruth Ann Swenson and Denyse Graves. But there also will be a separate matinee performance two days later, when the singers will take a look back at Palm Beach Operas 50 years with scenes from La Traviata,Ž Die Fledermaus,Ž La Boheme,Ž Carmen,Ž AdaŽ and others. Opera lovers this season will be treated to three main stage productions, Madama B utterfly,Ž R omeo & JulietŽ and Lucia di Lammermoor,Ž plus that gala, titled The Best of 50 Years.Ž There also will be con-certs at such venues as the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and Downtown at the Gardens, and the annual vocal competition, which draws many future stars of opera. We have to have a bigger impact in the community, or a bigger footprint in our respective communities than what we put on the main stage, and I think a lot of opera companies right now are realizing that,Ž Mr. Biaggi says. Its not only about how many main stage opera productions FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B1 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Sandy Days, Salty NightsIs it my innocent look?

I have a look „ something about my face, something about my mannerisms „ that people find familiar. They say I remind them of an old friend, a col-league, a cousin up North. I smile politely and shake my head. No,Ž I say. I just have one of those faces.Ž I was at a Mexican restaurant the other day with three girlfriends, drinking margaritas and eating fish tacos, dishing about work scandals and celebrity gossip. Our waiter was young, younger than us, with dark hair and a sweetness to his face that made me blush. He set down a fresh basket of tortilla chips and turned to head back to the kitchen before stopping short. Do I know you?Ž he said.I looked up from the table where I eyed scattered grains of salt. I met his gaze and blushed again. I think Ive seen you in here before,Ž he said. Actually, he hadnt. My girlfriends and I were in an out-of-the-way place, miles from our usual haunts, in a part of Florida we dont fre-quent. I shook my head, ready with the old standby. No. I just have one of those faces.Ž When he walked away, I turned back to my girlfriends. Its crazy,Ž I said. I really do have one of those faces. People stop me all the time and ask if they know me.Ž My friends looked at each other. Are they men?Ž Kelly said. Some of them.ŽClaire laughed. Theyre totally hitting on you.Ž I opened my eyes wide. What?Ž They laughed.Of course,Ž Kelly said. Thats totally a line.Ž But I get it all the time. Its my face.Ž Kelly shook her head and stirred her marga-rita. Its a line.Ž After our lunch of too much salsa and not enough tequila, I start-ed to pay attention. Not just to the Do I know you?Ž line, but to lines in general. It turns out theyre everywhere, hiding in con-versations, tucked into discourses I thought were free of all that heavy, sticky sexuality that happens so often when men and women com-municate. Id assumed I was above all that and so were the men I spoke to. The next weekend, in a restaurant with an outdoor terrace, I approached the bar. Can we still order mimosas?Ž I asked. The bartender, carrying two drinks, slid from behind the bar on his way to a table. He stepped close to me „ uncomfortably close „ and winked. I cant wait to see you drunk,Ž he said. I stood there for a few seconds, open-mouthed, all my ideas about innocent conversations gone. But the worst came later in the week, from a coworker, a man Im friendly with but not friends with. I have to head out,Ž I said. I need to take a shower and change for the evening.Ž The co-worker smiled gamely. Let me know if you need help with that.Ž I didnt realize what he meant until I stepped outside, and then it was too much „ too dirty, too personal. I wondered how often men had thrown out lines like that and how often I had missed them. Perhaps thats what they saw in my face.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 B3 It goes without saying that point count is enormously helpful in the bid-ding, but it also is true that point count can be very helpful in the play. Take this deal where South gets to four hearts after West opens a weak notrump, showing 12 to 14 points. West leads the king of diamonds and shifts to a low spade. Declarer plays low from dummy, overtaking the eight with the nine in order to lead the queen of hearts. When West covers with the king, South wins with dummys ace and returns a heart to the jack, learning in the process that West has a trump trick coming. Declarer must now try to hold himself to one club loser. To accomplish this, he enters dummy with a spade, leads a club toward the K-J and then has to decide what to play after East follows low. If East has the queen, South should play the jack; if East has the ace, South should play the king. It is a crucial guess, and to solve the problem, declarer turns his attention to the point count. He can tell from the opening lead that West had the A-K of diamonds (seven points). He knows from the play at trick two that West also has the jack of spades (one point), since East would have covered dummys eight with the jack if he had it. West has also turned up with the king of hearts (three points), bringing his point count in those three suits to 11. It follows that West cannot have the ace of clubs, which would give him 15 points. Accordingly, South goes up with the king of clubs and makes four hearts. Q CONTRACT BRIDGE BY STEVE BECKERA crucial guess Enjoy an afternoon of fun and activities for the entire family!

PAGE 36 FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Q Fly by Night,Ž by Ward Larsen. Oceanview Publishing. 336 pages. $25.95. Ward Larsen has done it again, adding another pulse-racing Jammer Davis aviation thriller to last years Fly by Wire.Ž Sup-pose a power-hungry imam, Rafiq Khoury, gained control of a downed experimental stealth drone and had it hid-den in a guard-ed hangar at the Khartoum airport. Suppose this same person headquartered his shady air freight company, a collection of patched-together DC-3 aircraft, at that same airport. Suppose one of those aircraft mysteriously crashed into the Red Sea. And suppose U.S. security officials had some notion about the location of the drone? What would they do? Who are they going to call? Jammer Davis, maverick crash investigator. His job? Under cover of inves-tigating the DC-3 crash, check on the whereabouts of the drone and discover what technological secrets might be stolen from it and put to dangerous purposes. Readers follow Davis as he makes his way to Khartoums FBN (sarcasti-cally called Fly by Night) Aviation and begins his inquiry. Episodes of his investigation alternate with others that follow the development of Khourys effort to master the remote control technologies of the stealth drone. Khoury and his underlings are in a race against time to fulfill a destruc-tive mission of enormous regional and world consequences. While Mr. Larsen keeps that missions objective obscured until near the end, the author matches the ticks of the villains clock against those of Daviss research „ there is a huge threat that Davis must defuse before its too late. Daviss tasks multiply as his oneman mission brings him into arduous adventures on land, in the air and on and under the sea. Seemingly equipped for almost any mental or physical challenge, he keeps in touch with his Washington, D.C., superiors as best he can while planning and improvising his way into and out of trouble. One of the hallmarks of a Ward Larsen book is a high-octane blend of suspense, emotion, action and techno-logical detail. Fully master of the technological issues that Davis confronts, Mr. Larsen has the special talent of describing them in ways that are understandable to the general reader, that never stop the action and that always keep that reader engaged. The varied cast of carefully drawn characters in Fly by NightŽ includes pilots, technicians and security work-ers employed by Khoury, one of whom is a former Davis nemesis now chief pilot for FBN. Each is sharply individu-alized and none is superfluous. The government officials Davis contacts are convincingly etched for their walk-on (or call-in) parts. Most important, however, is Dr. Regina Antonelli. This gorgeous physi-cian is dedicated to helping the desper-ate people of Sudan by operating an underfunded and frequently robbed medical aid station near the airport. The relationship between Davis and the doctor is at first frosty, but it warms and then really heats up. Ara-bic-speaking Regina becomes Daviss lone ally and a serious romantic inter-est. I hope Mr. Larsen allows us to meet her again; shes another kind of ticking time bomb. Connecting all this to the current state of affairs in the Middle East, Mr. Larsen has put together a supercharged techno-thriller. QFLORIDA WRITERS Ward Larsen does it again, this time with suspense in Sudan w w phil JASON O P More about the author LARSENFlorida-born Ward Larsen enlisted in the U.S. Air Force after graduation from the University of Central Florida. While serving for seven years as a pilot in the 95th and 75th Fighter Squadrons, he trav-eled widely across North America, Europe and the Middle East.

Its really about how many meaningful engaging connections can you create within the community.Ž The company used to stage four operas a year, but the economic crisis and Madoff scandal have affected fund-raising at many area nonprofits. So the company is looking beyond those four big shows at the Kravis Center „ a little less there and a little more elsewhere. For the future, I would envision even more things outsideƒ. Id love to have an outdoor concert on the water-front down here at the Meyer Amphi-theatre. Id love to see if theres a way that we can, like others, eventually have a simulcast of one of the opening nights on a big screen now that this big lawn is finished where the old library used to be.Ž That idea of the big screen is one that has done well in such places as London, where The Last Night of the Proms is one of the big events of the summer, and in New York and Boston, where outdoor concerts and simulcasts are key to the cultural calendar. Those events have been around for a while now, but they are comparatively recent in the overall scheme of things for cultural organizations that have been around for a century and more. At a half-century, Palm Beach Opera also is thinking about ways to keep itself relevant for modern audiences. What about this season? All the three opera productions, per se, are exciting in many different ways. Im a big fan of Butterf ly and I love the fact that this is a bit of a dif-ferent production,Ž he says. Its little bit cleaner, a little bit more theatrical. I think it tells the story much more on a person-to-person level rather than fall-ing into too many stereotypes of this is what a B utterfl y should look like, in terms of the production, not the singer. Its based on a little bit more of a the-atric approach.Ž And thats one of the things we as opera companies can do in making sure that what we put on is relevant. Its beautiful singing, but it doesnt have to be only what people expect when they come in. And so we tried, on one hand with B utterfly to have a bit different production focus, and especially with Romeo & Juliet, which has not been done here for such a long time.Ž What was old is new again.Its not a straightforward rental of a production that already exists,Ž Mr. Biaggi says of the opera, last performed locally in 1971. Were putting it together with Kevin Newberry, a wonderful young American director who is taking scenic elements from a production of Grapes of Wrath from the Minne-sota Opera, which is right now being remodeled into Werther and hes then going to take the most important sce-nic elements from that, as well as other elements that were building around it and combining it with costumes to create something that as such has not existed before. And thats always a very interesting creative process to see how all that comes together.Ž What about Lucia di LammermoorŽ?Its the singing. Its all about the type of role and Patrizia Ciofi to come here, and those conditions, was quite a coup. Well have to make sure in the marketing that we let people know what it means that shes coming,Ž he says. I am primarily excited about the fact that its a 50th season to begin with, because thats just not something that happens every year.Ž He sees that as an opportunity.I do hope that with many different initiatives that will also turn into a big fundraising year,Ž he says. Were plan-ning to put in place an endowment campaign, which also is becoming more instrumental for opera compa-nies. I think in the end it is almost inevitable that we as cultural organi-zations go toward the model of uni-versities and hospitals in trying to be almost fully endowed, simply because the production costs will always rise.Ž Ticket sales never fully cover production costs, Mr. Biaggi says. Typically, it may be about 35 percent,Ž he says. But ticket sales have dropped, and are less than 30 percent of production costs, thanks, in part to the economic crisis. Last year, the opera had a $4.6 million budget; ticket sales were $1.3 mil-lion. This years budget is expected to hover around $4.7 million to $4.8 mil-lion, he said. The company lost a major benefactor a few years ago, when Robert Mont-gomery Jr. died, though his wife, Mary, has continued to be a supporter. We have our angel, Helen Persson, who has been so incredibly instrumen-tal in the past two, three seasons, espe-cially by underwriting special perfor-mances and with her matching grants which allowed us for the first time to have a balanced budget or even a little surplus.Ž That cha-ching of donations is music to Mr. Biaggis ears, but he came from the performance side of music. Swiss-born, Mr. Biaggi trained as a baritone and sang professionally before moving into the administrative side of the arts. Does he still sing?Not really. In the shower and in the car,Ž he says. Its not something I miss. I love being in the seat where I am putting together the big picture of how things happen. But I do, especially after a good rehearsal, even more so than after a good performance, after a good rehearsal I go home and I sing in the car all the time.Ž That lends a certain amount of empathy. It comes in handy still. You really can put yourself in the place of the performer. You know what they go through in order to do what they do and know what their requirements are. I do believe anyone in this business has to first love opera singers. If you dont, then it makes no sense,Ž says Mr. Biaggi, who says he listens to every-thing from soprano Karita Mattila to pop singer Adele. His love for opera and opera singers helps him focus on keeping the com-pany on track to survive and to thrive. My vision really would be to always have a stronghold at the Kravis Center. Thats our home, thats where you put on the big shows,Ž he says. I think what we need to re-evaluate is the marketplace to see how many produc-tions and how many performances per production.Ž His vision comes back to increased visibility for the company. That means outdoor concerts and performances of smaller-scale works at smaller venues throughout the area. The point is to shift the focus on realizing that in the end the major stakeholder is the contributor not the ticket buyer because the tickets will never cover the expenses to begin with and that by creating an organization that has much more visibility in the community and can offer free concerts for the community, will become more enticing for people to get involved „ corporate support, individual support.Ž After all, its all about building a community of music lovers. As a mission it will become much more important for us to touch many more people, even if that happens out-side the traditional opera venue,Ž he says.

Monkey thought twas all in fun. Pop!

You know, f2f? Organ grinders used to be in meat space. Until midnight on New Years Eve in 1935, when the licenses of the last 51 organ grinders expired. After this expiration, the Molinari Company in Brooklyn, source of their street organs, crushed its remaining inventory into splinters. If only that organ grinder hadnt come to Prescott, Ariz. If only young Fiorello La Guardia had not been mocked after the arrival to his birthplace of an Italian street musician and his monkey. Said by many to be the greatest mayor of NYC, the 5-foot-tall La Guardia the tough-minded liberal Republican Epis-copalian Freemason with a Jewish moth-er and an atheistic Italian father army bandmaster, eliminated Big Apple organ grinders. Too many kids had laughed and taunted: Wheres your monkey, Fiorello?Ž In 1970, the ban was lifted.In 1975, Joe Bush tied himself to his white-faced Capuchin monkey named George. This went on for three weeks. They were locked together in his study, screaming at each other all night. They finally reached an understand-ing, but Joes wife left him. George stayed. For 15 years, he and Joe did their organ grinding act in NYC. When George died, Joe freeze-dried him and put him, paws extended, on a shelf in his study. Joe, well paid and respected, continued the act with George II. Organ grinders, with their street organs and mon-keys, were seen by many as pictur-esque and romantic. For others they were persons of ill repute, indolent and vicious. Despised as beggars by some, the money given was seen as a bribe begging silence. I have never really been face to face with an organ grinder. I have come closest to the experience via a jack-in-the-box surprise pop up. But why a clown instead of a monkey? Or a weasel? Did you won-der about that, too?And what about the Marvel comic telepathic Aboriginal mutant, another called Jack-in-the-Box, whose body parts putrified and fell off when he used his powers? How could he be nonchalant in the face of this surprising loss? Did the parts just keep growing back, popping up over and over? Freud understood the swoon of presence and absence. His 18-month-old nephews game with a wooden reel tied to a string taught him. The child threw the reel away, saying fort, gone. Then he would pull the reel back, exclaiming da, here. The game was endless delight for him. And where is the real reel? Look. Here and gone, surprising, singing, monkeying around. We magic musi-cians have to stick together.

Festival guests will use their chocolate creativity to hand-design each and every wrapper and all of the bars will find their way into the homes of fami-lies of our Military Service Members and Wounded Warriors through Opera-tion Homefront, and the families await-ing medical care of their children serviced by the Quantum House. Chocolate is one of the few things that has the ability to spread happiness without words and even just a little piece can make a person feel special. Most importantlyƒchocolate is sweeter when shared,Ž said Aileen Mand, festi-val of chocolate producer. The 1,000 bars will be delivered to Operation Homefront and The Quan-tum House as a special Thanksgiving addition to their holiday table. What a creative way for The Festival of Chocolate to give back and shed light on the reality of the need of the Military Families in our community,Ž said Megan Lysaker, director of development. The decorated bars are sure to lift spirits around the Holiday Time when some families do not get to be together. We really appreciate receiving them.Ž The Festival of Chocolate features a chocolate vendor showcase, demonstra-tions by award-winning chefs, a live chocolate showpiece competition, a Kids-4-Chocolate area and guest com-petitions.

YesHeist movies are hard to pull off (pun intended), because smart audi-ences have seen the switch-a-roo tricks already and tire easily of stale storylines. Director Brett Ratner (Red DragonŽ) has by no means crafted a masterpiece with Tower Heist,Ž but its an amusing comedy with some fun surprises. The fictional towerŽ in which the events occur features apartments that cost an average of $5.6 million and, to wit, attract the wealthiest clientele New York City has to offer. In the penthouse is financier Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda), whom we soon learn has committed securities fraud (think Ponzi scheme/Bernie Madoff). Worse, Shaw lost the pensions of all the employees of the tower, who include: the manager Josh (Ben Stiller), general manager Simon (Judd Hirsch), concierge Charlie (Casey Affleck), doorman Lester (Stephen Hen-derson) and maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe). Josh and the employees naturally want revenge on Shaw, whos living in his apartment under house arrest. Upon learning from FBI Agent Claire (Tea Leoni) that $20 million of Shaws money remains unaccounted for, Josh recruits Charlie, the new elevator man Enrique (Michael Pena) and a down-on-his-luck broker named Mr. Fit-zhugh (Matthew Broderick) to break into Shaws apartment and take whats theirs. Tower HeistŽ gets off to a sluggish start, but once Eddie Murphy appears as a thief named Slide, things pick up for the better. Murphy has said hes veering away from family-friendly material, and hes funny here as an untrustworthy big-mouth whos only in it for himself. The problem is Murphys character is superfluous: After were led to believe Josh and Charlie know everything there is to know about the building, theres no need for Slide. In fact, Slide offers nothing in terms of planning, mean-ing all Murphy does is crack jokes „ which is good because theyre funny, but bad because his character is completely unnecessary. But then, with a cast as good as this one, the movie can survive having a few characters underwritten by screenwrit-ers Ted Griffin and Jeff Nathanson. The good news is all the major players get some good laughs, including Broderick in full bitternessŽ mode and Sidibe, who heretofore has only been known for Precious.Ž She evens dons a believable Jamaican accent and plays nicely off the rest of the cast. The only person whos not particularly funny (disclosure: I never find him funny) is Stiller, who does fine in hold-ing the story together but offers little more. The heist itself doesnt reach nearly the complexity of something like Oceans 11,Ž although we do get the expected extreme level of planning and luck as things transpire. But thats all par for the course and part of the fun. So although you will get your moneys worth, this ones not quite a steal at the price of admission. Q Puss in Boots ++ (Voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis) In this prequel to the ShrekŽ franchise, Puss (Banderas) teams with Humpty Dumpty (Galifiana-kis) and Kitty Softpaws (Hayek) to find the Golden Goose. There are some cute cat-isms for cat lovers, but overall this franchise has overstayed its welcome. Rated PG.Paranormal Activity 3 +++ (Chloe Csengery, Jessica Tyler Brown, Lauren Bittner) Young Katie (Csengery) and Kristi (Brown) meet the demon that will affect them later in life in this prequel to the first two ParanormalŽ mov-ies. There are some good scares here (even if most are fake), and Csengery and Brown deliver impressive perfor-mances. Rated R.Footloose ++ (Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Den-nis Quaid) Big city kid Ren (Wormald) moves to a small Georgia town that has banned public dancing and falls for the wild-child daughter (Hough) of the preacher (Quaid) who instituted the ban. This remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon classic is better than loyal fans of the original will want it to be, but it also has the same flaws as its predecessor. Rated PG-13.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 Enter to win one of 10Free Captiva Holiday Village weekendsTo learn more about Captiva Holiday Villages schedule, events, and contest go to COME VACATION ON BEAUTIFUL CAPTIVA ISLAND, FLORIDA VINOAussie winemaker says mollydookers make the best vino jim McCRACKEN O Do left-handed winemakers make better wine? Mollydooker may sound like a womans name, but its Australian slang for left-handed. Its also the name of Sparky Marquis Down Under wine company, so named because he and his wife, Sarah, are mollydookers. I recently spent some time talking with Mr. Mar-quis as he prepared for a wine dinner in Miami, giving each bottle his customary Mollydooker Shake.Ž Q: What is the Mollydooker Shake? A: We use nitrogen to stabilize the wine, so the Mollydooker Shake gets the nitrogen out. Open the bottle, pour a little out into the glass, close the bottle, turn it upside down and then shake it. After that you will see a line of creamy froth on the top of the wine „ thats the nitrogen that is released. Now you are all set to enjoy the wine. Q: Your company recently made international headlines when a forklift dropped a shipment of Velvet Glove. What does it mean to you to lose such an in-demand wine? A: Well, the biggest thing is to lose 462 cases, 6,000 bottles. It was one-third our total production, and possibly our best vintage. The container was being loaded, and the forklift picked it up from the top. One of the forks sheared, and it fell to the dock, smash-ing everything. We were insured and all, but the wine cannot be replaced. The forklift operator told me he wished he had dropped the next container. I told him I wouldnt wish this on anyone, but why did he say that? It was a container of beach sand, he replied. Q: Do left-handed winemakers make better wines? A: Its all about passion and excitement. We make wines that make people say Wow! We try to leave no stone unturned; every step of the way we are quality oriented. But I will say that left-handers are more artistic. My wife, Sarah, designed all of our labels, and each one depicts a mollydooker. Two Left Feet is Sarah and me dancing; well, I am stepping on her toes. The Boxer fights using two left gloves, and so forth. Q: When did you decide you wanted to be a winemaker? A: I grew up working in my parents restaurant, but Sparky was going to be a photographer. Then I discovered I liked wine a lot. I went back to college to learn winemaking. I am excited about it, and it has become my only passion. I started on this journey 16 years ago, and have worked with several different winemakers. Q: How do you manage to create a balanced wine with such a high alcohol content and rich flavors? A: Vineyard canopy management was my college thesis. Healthy vines create the best fruit, and the flavor of the wine is created in the vineyard. Our Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme focuses on creating the most intense fruit fla-vors possible. We measure everything about the vine and the fruit twice a week in each vineyard, and regulate the water going into the vineyard to pro-duce the highest fruit weight possible. Q: Whats next? A: We are releasing a new sparkling shiraz, made in the champagne method, and couldnt quite figure out what to call it. So we had a contest to name it and received 6,000 entries. The win-ning name is Miss Molly „ from a fan in North Carolina. Q: Any last words for our readers? A: Absolutely! Drink it now … we will make you another bottle next year! Some of my favorites from the wine dinner and tasting (all 2010 vintage): Two Left Feet ($25): Like all of the reds, the color is a rich dark crimson. It has deep flavors of berries, plums and currants, with vanilla and spice and a touch of oak, a fine tannin structure and long finish. The Boxer ($25): It has intense blackberry, fig and fresh berries in the aroma and flavor, with hints of spice and oak. Amazing complexity and a long lingering finish. Enchanted Path ($90): Dark purple in color, this shiraz-cabernet blend is a powerful wine with big fruit weight and an amazingly long finish. Vibrant fruit flavors of berries, blackberry and plum, mixed with anise and spices in layers on the palate. Carnival of Love ($90): Violet in color, this lush shiraz has aromas of dark plum, licorice and berries, followed on the palate with sweet fruit and hints of pepper and spice, and a long finish. Velvet Glove ($185): This shiraz is the winerys high-end wine. Its dark in color, with a spicy berry nose and flavors of fresh raspberry, black cherry, plum and blueberries. Soft in the mouth but bursting with flavors that are ele-gant and voluptuous, with a long bal-anced tannin finish. Q PHOTO BY JIM MCCRACKEN Sparky Marquis demonstrates the “Mol-lydooker Shake,” used to get nitrogen out of the wine.
