New facility is named Mandel JCCThe new Jewish Community Center in Palm Beach Gardens will be named the Mandel JCC, honoring the Mandel Foundation and brothers Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel. The foundation has pro-vided a $5 million grant to help construct the facility. The Jewish Community Center of the Greater Palm Beaches announced the name during the recent Vision for the FutureŽ campaign kick-off reception at Temple Emanu-El in Palm Beach. The groundbreaking for the new facility, on Hood Road just west of Central Boule-vard, is set for spring 2012. Two hundred supporters at the event saw the first images of the building and recognized local leaders who have con-tributed an additional $5 million to estab-lish the beginning of a $20 million COURTESY PHOTOThe foundation created by brothers Joseph Man-del, left, Morton Mandel and Jack Mandel has donated funds for the new community center.SEE JCC, A12 XSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH FLORIDA ON BETS all are Would we win or lose by becoming a casino-resort destination?

561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS.pbgmc.com/heartscreenings WHY EXPERIENCE MATTERS IN HEART CARE. The more heart emergencies that a team handles „ the more angioplasties and heart surgeries it performs „ the better the outcomes. The better the results. This is a fact. Experience is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done.The way we do it. www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 Theres something each of us should know, both as individual Americans and as parents of individual Americans „ something rarely or never taught in our public schools, which is one more failing of those tax-fueled, assembly-line systems of sheepheaded simplicity. It is this: Each of us is running for president, always. And we always have been from the moment we drew our first American breaths. Therefore, every mis-take we make will someday be excavated like an old bone then scoffed at like a whore in church, in front of the world, whether we like it or not. Thats right, youre a candidate. Im a candidate.Were all candidates. And wed all better get used to it. The sooner our children are made aware of that fact, the more successful they will be in their own candidacies. Call it Realism 101, a class that should be taught in every academic program from K through 20. The lesson is simple: Make a mistake and its going to come back to bite you like a pit bull in a bear cage. So let me declare right now that I will announce my run for office before long „ most likely in these pages, where I enjoy the overwhelming support of liberals, con-servatives, dogs, cats, men, women and other fools, as well as Yankees, Southerners, Westerners, Easterners and Mexicans, not to mention children I havent yet kicked. In other words, any who havent read my column consistently and dont know me very well. Many Mexicans, for example, havent read this column because they cant read English. I have a lot of sympathy for their position, but I can assure you it will change after I send the U.S. Army down there for the first time since 1846 and take over again, making them all citizens of our 51st state, while simultaneously solving their problems with each other and our problems with them. The same is true of many Yankees and Southerners, along with Easterners and Westerners „ they havent read the column because they cant read English, either. Or simply wont. Apparently, they cant or wont read anything but bumper stickers, beer labels and the names of professional sports teams if theyre spelled in very big letters or imprinted on shoes and sweatshirts. My kind of folks. Many of my admirers, however, can listen very well, especially when somebody takes a misstep „ or in the case of some presidential candidates Im about to name, a mis-running-broad-jump. So Im heading that problem off right now by admitting to several of my own more minor missteps up front, before I even commit them. First, I fully intend to squeeze a woman under the table someday, just like presi-dential candidate Herman Cain. It sounds fun, and I for one will not be intimidated or dissuaded by self-righteous behavior police who insist on denying four mil-lion years of biological imperative, every epoch of it supercharging my feverish, testosterone-injected bloodstream and insisting with the authority of the ages „ hell, with the authority of creation itself „ that I squeeze her. True, her name may be Amy and she may be my wife, but Im still going ahead with it, just so you know. And while Im on the subject of women, I plan to continue lusting in my heart for them just as I always have „ and just as President Jimmy Carter did back when you didnt have to run for president some-day unless you wanted to, and nobody cared anyway. Second, I plan to purposely forget the names of every single major department or branch of government or service, agen-cy or special committee whenever any reporter asks me about them. Rick Perry did it, and hes a Texan who already made it to governor in his own personal journey toward the White House, so I want to do it, too. I also want to own a baseball team like George W. Bush once did. By the way, did you spot the former Texas governor and two-term U.S. Presi-dent smirking with some pals „ I assume his frat brothers, the only people who could put up with him „ from the front row of a Rangers-Cardinals World Series game in Arlington recently? Yup, thar he rode, tall in the saddle as the camera panned across them good ol boys, grinnin like a kid with chaw in his cheek. Still hasnt read a book, probably cant read this column, either, which means he might be a supporter of mine, too. Lord, I hope not. But back to Gov. Perry. On the national stage in front of every camera God ever invented he trumpeted, Its three agen-cies of government when I get there that are gone: Commerce, Education, and the uh...whats the third one, there? Lets see. The third agency of government. I would do away with Education, with Commerce and lets see ... I cant. The third one I cant. Oops.Ž Oops, indeed. This man is an incredible success. So in order to succeed myself I plan to do the same dang Texas-style thing. Not only has it worked for Perry, but it also worked for the last Texan we had in the White House, the aforementioned Pres., ah, Pres. Joeƒno, Pres. What-was-his-name? Well, lets call him Shrub, as many have before. President Shrub. He did that kind of thing, too, you may recall. Asked one time what his favorite book was by a tiny little elementary school student, President Shrub stutter ed a bit, missed a couple of titles by a mile or two, then gave up trying to name one. What is it about Texas, anyway „ the water? Or maybe its the shine. Anyway, I plan to enter my first debate as a presidential candidate with a startling announcement: Ladies and gentleman, Im going to get rid of the Peace Corps, the, ah, Press Corps, and the, whats that other one, um, the CORP, or is it THE Corpsƒ Oh yeah, the Corps de Ballet. Gone when I get there, you can count on it.Ž Because I am one hot-shot candidate for president of these glorious 51 „ or is it 50, still? „ United States. And so are you. Q Me. You. Us: We’re all running for president roger WILLIAMS O rwilliams@floridaweekly.comCOMMENTARY

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 The acid test of the American Dream is whether people can rise beyond the circumstances of their births. With Occupy Wall Street doing for income inequality what the Tea Party did for debt, the state of the American Dream is more and more central to the political debate. Are we divided between the top 1 percent and a vast wasteland of the dispossessed, as many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters have it? Or are we still the land of opportunity, as top House Republican Paul Ryan insisted in a recent speech at the Heritage Foundation? The answer is that we are still a mobile society, although not as much of one as we might wish. If the nihilistic despair of the Occupy Wall Street crowd is detached from reality, neither is self-congratulation in order. If Paul Ryan is right to say class is not a fixed designa-tion in this country,Ž it is much too fixed at the bottom of the income scale. The American Dream is alive, but ragged around the edges. Are we better off than our parents? Yes. According to Scott Winship of the Brookings Institution, data from the Pew Economic Mobility Project show that two-thirds of 40-year-old Americans are in house-holds with greater incomes than their parents when they were 40. Then theres the question of how Americans are faring relative to everyone else. If they are born in the bottom fifth of the income dis-tribution, do they get out? Winship notes that if it were a mat-ter of random chance, 20 percent of people would remain in the bot-tom fifth. Instead, about 40 percent stay in the bottom. That means 60 percent make it out (the good news), but most dont make it far (the bad news). Only a third make it into the top three-fifths. Picking the right parents,Ž as Winship puts it, has an enormous impact. A child born to parents in the bottom fifth has about a 17 per-cent chance of making it to the top two-fifths, while a child born to parents already in the top two-fifths has a 60 percent chance of staying there. We are particularly bad at getting people, and especially males, out of the bottom. One study Winship cites showed that in the United States, 42 percent of sons of fathers in the bottom fifth stayed there as adults. This stagnation is less a statement about the structure of Americas economy than about its culture. As Ronald Haskins, also of the Brookings Institution, wrote in an essay for the publication National Affairs, economic mobil-ity is constrained above all by personal choices and behaviors.Ž He argues that societys leaders should herald the success sequence: finish schooling, get a job, get married, have babies.Ž If Americans finished high school, worked full time at a job that matched their skills and mar-ried at the rate they did in the 1970s, the poverty rate would be cut 70 percent. These old-fashioned bourgeois virtues, and par-ticularly marriage, rarely figure in the public debate. Everyone is more comfortable talking about taxes or the banks, as the America Dream frays. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National R e view. OPINIONAmerica the mobile? mike JACKSON Special to Florida Weekly O t o h t w t rich LOWRY Special to Florida Weekly O GUEST OPINION‘Do-Overs’ are all-American Many Republicans say they want to repeal the new health-care law. This is now a campaign plank for some of the GOP presidential candidates. Its all about politics, and thats healthy. The president signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. It was a partisan bill. No Republicans voted for it in either the House or Senate, and only a hand-ful of Democrats in the House voted against it. With their majorities, the Democrats had little political need to heed concerns of the minority. There was little evidence of com-promise. A few months later in the mid-term elec-tions, voters destroyed the Democratic partys monopoly. Now, with their majority in the House, Republi-cans are making demands. Already, their voice is being heard. This spring, the House majority passed out a full repeal. The majority Senate Democrats voted in a bloc against it. The House came back with less com-prehensive repeal of a single onerous tax reporting requirement imposed on businesses. This time, enough Senate Democrats gave in, and even the presi-dent signed the repeal into law. This happened only after this specific repeal was defeated during the spending limit debate. This is evidence that the Congress can reach agreement, but its messy. Like all good things, it takes time and perse-verance; and in politics, it takes support from enough voters to give their party some sway in congress. Its politics, and when voters participate, its healthy. The lesson is that compromiseŽ in American government appears to hap-pen most often after the fact. Here are two examples. 1. Prohibition. Killing the booze business was so popular with the elec-torate, it was not merely a law, but rather a constitutional amendment. Years later, the nation developed a renewed thirst, thought better of it, and Prohibition was repealed. 2. The Glass-Steagall Act. This measure „ sponsored by two Democrats „ regulated the banking industry. It was signed into law after the Great Depression. Then, in the 1990s, in the more conservative tidal wave of deregulation, it was repealed. Possibly, the old laws fixed a problem and they were no longer needed. More likely, the electorate tried the new laws, didnt like the taste, and took them back. Its not compromiseŽ in the classic sense, but it is our political response to what voters want. Now, back to Obamacare.Ž Already, both sides have agreed to amend part of it. Well learn whether voters want additional incremental revisions, or „ as in GlassSteagall and Prohibition „ a total reversal. The argument on both sides will be about who benefits, and at what costs. Whats important is that our system provides for do-overs.Ž Q PublisherMichelle Nogamnoga@floridaweekly.comEditor & Circulation Director Betty Wellsbwells@floridaweekly.com Reporters & ColumnistsScott Simmons Athena Ponushis Tim Norris Jan Norris Mary Jane Fine Artis Henderson Jeannette Showalter Nancy Stetson Bill Cornwell Linda Lipshutz Leslie Lilly Roger Williams Yona MishaninaPhotographersScott B.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIs people foodŽ safe for dogs? Some is, some isnt, and knowing whats OK to share can mean the difference between a healthy treat and a trip to the emergency clinic.Q Sugar-free candy and gum. Read the label of your favorite sugar-free gum, candy or even cough drop, and youll likely find xylitol on the ingredients list. The sweetener has become extremely popular in recent years, and its increased use has led to many cases of poisoning in dogs. The prod-uct causes low blood sugar and liver failure in canines. If you carry sugar-free gum or candy in your purse or backpack, make sure you keep it out of reach of your pet.Q Chocolate. Though xylitols toxicity comes as a surprise to many people, pretty much everyone knows that chocolate can be a problem for dogs. And it is, but its not as dangerous as most people think. The thing to remember: The darker the chocolate and the smaller the dog, the more dangerous the combina-tion. If your Labrador retriever eats a small bar of milk chocolate, shell likely get only a bellyache. But a tiny Maltese who eats a few ounces of dark chocolate could land in the emergency clinic.Q Raisins and grapes. No one really knows why grapes and their dried relations, raisins, are a problem for dogs, but they surely are. Dogs who eat a large amount of either may go into renal failure. It may be that some dogs are extremely sensitive and others are less sensitive, and its unknown if small amounts over time can be as dangerous as one large bunch of grapes or raisins. Due to the uncertainty, the ASPCAs Animal Poison Control Center advises against giving any amount of raisins or grapes to any dog at any time.Q Macadamia nuts. Another medical mystery, these nuts are best not shared with your pets „ espe-cially if they are cloaked in dark chocolate. Though fatalities are rare, as few as 10 nuts can cause frightening symptoms in a small dog, such as muscle weakness, tremors and vomiting. Its just not worth it.Q Onions and garlic. Garlic and onions can damage healthy red blood cells, leading to life-threatening anemia if not caught and treated in time. Final note: Veterinarians often recommend that ill pets who wont eat be tempted with meat-variety baby food. But be careful to read the label, as some baby foods contain garlic and onions. Choose a brand without them. Now that Ive told you what you cant share with your dog, Im happy to share my favorite treats that you both can eat. Some words of warning first: Treats count as food. More than half the nations pets are overweight or obese. So while its OK, in general, to share healthy food with your pet, watch the size of the treats (break them up „ dogs can count, but they cant measure) and the frequency. Treats also can lead to behavior problems. If you give your pet a treat whenever he asks, be prepared for him to ask often „ and to move to demand when a polite request doesnt bring forth the goodies. Make sure every treat you give is on your terms, not your dogs. Even better: Use treats for train-ing, which means youll be working toward a goal when the goodies come out. So what kinds of people food are good for sharing? My favorites are baby carrots and apple slices. I also like sharing blue-berries, yogurt and lean bits of meat, such as baked or boiled chicken with the fatty skin removed. When in doubt, ask your veterinarian if a particular food is safe for your pet. The bottom line: A little sharing can be OK. Just know whats safe for your pet and make sure youre not either helping your dog pack on the pounds or learn tricks youd rather he not. Q >> Crystal is an 8-month-old spayed female Shiba Inu Dachshund mix. She weighs less than 20 pounds and should get a bit bigger. When she came to the shelter she had thin spots on her coat and was sad. Now she is healthy and likes to play.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 A7 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE"You eat meat, so why not blood?" asked The Globe and Mail, which sampled several Toronto restaurants' sangui-nary haute cuisines, including the Italian eatery Buca's spaghetti with blood-black-ened noodles and torta di sanguinaccio (figs, almonds, buffalo-milk creme, on a base custard of dark chocolate and slow-cooked pig's blood). Patrons "thought we were crazy," said chef Rob Gentile, but now "can't seem to get enough." The Black Hoof restaurant uses 10 liters of fresh blood a week for dishes like its own blood custard, seasoned with rosemary and pickled pears. Montreal's DNA kitch-en sometimes highlights blood soup and blood pasta. (The Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark „ which some believe to be the best restaurant in the world „ marinates cauliflower in pig's blood.) Q Q I don t get it. I just dont get it. And y oure not going to get me to get it,Ž warned Marine squadron commander Lt. Col. Jerry Turner (to a Wall Street Journal Afghanistan reporter writing in October), when learning that a few of his troops were sporting artistically shaped eyebrows sculpted by a barber in the town of Shinwar. StylistŽ Gulam Farooq cant practice on Muslims (forbidden) but said one or twoŽ Marines come by every day (in between calling in artil-lery barrages) for tapering. Q The Military Times news service, reporting from Afghanistan in August, disclosed a U.S. Marines command directive order-ing troops to restrain their audible flatus because, apparently, Afghan soldiers and civilians complained of being offended. The reporter doubted the directive could be effective, in that passing gas by front-line troops is practically a sport.Ž Q A vendor at a street market in Leipzig, Germany, was revealed in September to be shamelessly selling personally tai-lored coats and vests made with fur from house cats. A first report, in the sensa-tionalist tabloid Bild, was doubted, but a follow-up by Germanys premier news source, Spiegel, confirmed the story. The vendor said he needed eight cats to make a vest (priced at the equivalent of $685) and 18 for a coat. However, such sales are illegal under German and European Union laws, and the vendor subsequent-ly denied that he sold such things. Q Q An 11-year-old California boy and a 7-year-old Georgia girl have recently decided „ with parental support -to come out as the other gender. The boy, Tommy, wants more time to think about it, said his lesbian parents, and has begun taking hormone blockers to make his tran-sition easier should he follow through with plans (first disclosed at age 3) to become Tammy.Ž The McIntosh County, Ga., girl has been living as a boy for a year, said father Tommy Theollyn, a transgendered man who is actually the one who gave birth. Mr. Theollyn petitioned the school board in September (unsuccessfully) to allow the child to use the boys bathroom. Mr. Theollyn said the girl first noticed she was a boy at age 18 months. Q Italian men are notorious bamboccionisŽ (big babiesŽ) who exploit dot-ing mothers by remaining in their family homes well into adulthood, sometimes into their 30s or later, expecting meals and laundry service. Many mothers are tolerant, but in September an elderly couple in the town of Mestre announced (through a consumer association) that if their 41-year-old, gainfully employed son did not meet a deadline for leaving, the association would file a lawsuit to evict him. (A news update has not been found, perhaps indicating that the son moved out.) Q Freemon Seay, 38, was arrested in Thurston County, Wash., in October on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after disciplining his 16-year-old daughter for leaving home without his approval. Mr. Seay allegedly forced the girl to suit up in armor and helmet, with a wooden sword, and to fight him (also in armor, with a wooden sword) for more than two hours until she could no longer stand up. Mr. Seays wife (the girls stepmoth-er) was booked as an accessory and was said by deputies to have been support-ive of her husbands Renaissance fairŽ enthusiasm (which Freemon Seay called a lifestyleŽ). Q Q In Oct ober, about 120 professional mimes began voluntarily patrolling the traffic-congested Sucre district of Cara-cas, Venezuela, at the request of Mayor Carlos Ocariz. The white-gloved mimes specialty was wagging their fingers at scofflaw motorists and pedestrians, and mimes interviewed by the Associated Press reported improvements. Q At least 300 professional clowns from Mexico and Central America, in Mexico City in October for a conven-tion, demonstrated against the countrys drug-cartel violence by laughing, in uni-son, nonstop, for 15 minutes. (They were likely less successful than the mimes.) Q Bloody good food Q Two men „ a 23-year-old in Fayetteville, N.C. (June), and a 22-year-old in Seminole, Fla. (October)„ accidentally shot themselves in the head while trying to assure friends that their guns posed no danger. Q A firearms instructor shot himself in the thigh during his recertification class at the Smith & Wesson facility in Springfield, Mass. (September). Q A man on a first date at Ruths Chris Steak house in Charlotte, N.C., accidentally shot himself in the leg as he was escorting his date to their car (September). Q As usual, at least one man (a 27-yearold in Chandler, Ariz.) paid the price for inartfully using his waistband as a holster, causing a groinŽ injury (August). Q And Milwaukee police secured a search warrant to photograph Otis Lock-etts penis (July), as evidence that he was illegally in possession of a gun (as a felon) by showing that he had accidentally shot off nearly all of his organ.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 A fledgling bill moving through the state s legislative digestive tract beginning this week would allow American and foreign-owned companies to open three casino resorts in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Each would likely invest at least $2 billion to have their new businesses up and running by 2015, each would compete directly with pari-mutuel venues and Indian casinos, and each would pay only 10 percent of revenue in tax. The bill could be considered by state legislators as early as Jan. 10, when the new legislative session gets under way. Under its proposed rules, three state agencies that now regulate dogand horse-track betting, poker rooms, slot machines, or jai-alai frontons, for ex-ample, along with other gambling, would be replaced by a single state commission of seven, named by the governor and ap-proved by the senate. Current Florida law allows the full range of gaming, including Vegas-style slots with such games as blackjack and baccarat only in casinos owned and operated by the Seminole or Miccosukee tribes, but that would change with pas-sage of the new bill. Pari-mutuel gaming venues in Florida that are now paying a 35-percent tax on their revenue, and Indian-controlled gaming that provides annual sums of roughly $250 million in return for the states guarantee of a monopoly on such business, would be threatened, analysts say.Change in the windBut legislators should not be afraid of change, especially when its in their interests, says Brenda Kinnaman, a long-time consultant to the gaming industry and to local and state governments try-ing to manage it. In a time when public money is tight to non-existent, gaming might be the asphalt on a highway out of the red and into the black, she suggests. It is time for Florida to permit casinodestination gambling, but it must be done the right way,Ž Ms. Kinnaman says. My hope is that Florida will take a model approach. Its likely to take more than one legislative session to get a bill passed. This is the way the process works, which is good. There is still much for the state, local communities and industry to consider.Ž Some consider the proposed bill and the idea of destination gaming as a way to improve economies merely a charade. Best as I can tell, no casino owners, whether natural born or made of paper, have ever gotten the wealth to be casino owners by gambling their wealth at the roulette wheel, card table, or in craps,Ž says Wayne Daltry, a retired planner on the Southwest coast who has studied the gambling issue closely. They have gotten their wealth by gambling other peoples money in likened ventures. Consequently, its difficult to see how the community will economically benefit.Ž One of the considerations cautious proponents of resort gambling insist upon is competition: which of the many potential competitors eager to develop such business would be best for a given county, a region or for the state? That question alone is good reason not to rush a deal, says Ms. Kinnaman. Many agree.The Fort Myers gambitIn a sideshow to the main Sunshine State event, former NBA basketball coach Pat Riley and his partners are proposing a lavish gaming resort near the center of Lee County at The Forum, a shopping center flanking I-75 and Colonial Boulevard. That would bring significant money and jobs to the region, they claim. But such a deal would also set a precedent for how other gaming entrepre-neurs might proceed in other counties. Its success would require two things besides passage of the proposed new state bill: a separate bill passed by the legislature, and the agreement of Lee County voters. In fact, any additional casino in any of Floridas 67 counties would require both state and local-voter approval, according to the rules of the road established in the language of the new bill. Rep. Matt Caldwell of Lehigh Acres, a Republican whose district 73 includes the Pat Riley business plan, remains am-bivalent about both the proposed state bill and the Riley plan, he says „ and that ambivalence, or outright opposition may characterize the thinking of many state legislators. If full casino gaming comes to Miami-Dade and Broward, I want us on the list (of other locations allowed by state mandate to welcome casino resort gambling),Ž Rep. Caldwell says. If were going to live with the ills of this, I want some of the gravy.Ž His uncertainty stems in part from a report released late last week by state economists in a Revenue Estimating Conference „ which does what it says. In the estimates of these economists, by the time the three casino resorts are doing a full business, they would bring in only $4 million to $102 million a year in new tax revenue, while siphoning off 17 percent of business from the Semi-noles Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, and 3 percent of business from the current slot machine venues, known as racinos,Ž in Miami-Dade and Broward. That news was reported in a Tampabay.com blog. The Tampa-St. Pete area includes another Indian casino that could be affected by a change in Florida gambling laws, the Seminole Hard Rock and Hotel Casino. If I were the Seminoles and that bill passes,Ž Rep. Caldwell adds, I dont think Id have any incentive to pay $250 million a yearŽ „ the agreement the tribe made with state government for exclusivity (the figure varies, based on annual income). So I wouldnt,Ž he concludes. Id just stop paying. And that would mean that by the time these casinos got up and running „ and I think its going to take at least four years „ so by 2016 the state would have lost $1 billion in revenue, and wed be starting that deep in the hole.ŽThe outright criticsThe critics are many, both of expanded gaming in general and of the state bill, which has been proposed by two east coast Republican legislators whose districts could benefit the most from the new legislation (Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff of Fort Lauderdale, and Miamis Rep. Erik Fresen). At stake: a dice-rolling, wheelspinning, slot-splashing, jingle-of-coin and clatter-of-chip world operating in the neon and off the reservation, so to speak „ away from the gaming venues traditionally controlled by the tribes on Indian lands in south and central Florida. Also at stake: the revenue and even the survival of other gambling venues, in particular the states 27 pari-mutuel gaming operations, five of which offer slot machines and 23 with card rooms featuring poker. Right now the bill is drawn up to favor three casino licenses and two major companies that have already expressed interest „ at the expense of any other entity that has gaming,Ž explains Rep. Gary Aubuchon, a Republican whose District 74 includes Lee and part of Charlotte County on the west coast. Rep. Aubuchon, who is now in the race to fill U.S. Rep. Connie Macks seat in Washington as Mack runs for the United States senate, chairs the influ-ential Rules and Calendar Committee in the House. That committee decides what bill will see the light of day for consideration on the House floor „ and thus, who might benefit or not. So far, The Sands and the Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas, and a Malaysian resort developer called Genting, which has already purchased costly waterfront property in Miami, stand to benefit the most, according to reports in The Palm Beach Post and the Miami Herald. The Seminole Indians and all parimutuel horse and dog tracks are op-posed to this,Ž says Rep. Aubuchon. Anti gambling constituencies are opposed. Those who run these Internet cafes across the state „ theyre opposed. Its not just a bill that brings out pro-gaming against anti-gaming lobbies; it brings out all sorts, and all fighting for different reasons. So it will be an interesting bill to watch move through the process.Ž And while he watches it move through other committees until it reaches his own, he will likely remain opposed, as least as the bill is currently presented, he says. I personally do not favor the expansion of gambling. It goes back in my experience to what Las Vegas tried to do.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 NEWS A9 U.S., if not the wor ld. Back in the 90s, they tried to bill themselves as a family friendly activity, but gambling is not a family activity. Its an adult activity. So they had to re-brand themselves as, what happens in Vegas stays in Ve-gas. And they were successful. Theyre admitting theyre not a family destina-tion. But Florida, conversely, is a family place, and known for it worldwide. People come from everywhere, whether to central Florida with our world-re-nowned theme parks, or to the beautiful coastal regions like Lee or Charlotte or Collier counties.Ž And thats the problem, he says.If we open our arms primarily in the name of economic development, in the name of gaming, we could actually kill the golden goose. The golden goose is a worldwide, family friendly destination „ its tourism.Ž Another of those who opposes the idea of new gambling casinos is Rep. Pat Rooney, a Palm Beach Gardens Repub-lican. Speaking not as an elected official but as president of the Palm Beach Kennel Club, Rep. Rooney says his business could be ruined by destination casinos just south of Palm Beach. Although the Kennel Club has 650 employees and offers a wide range of at-tractions, including 60 hot poker tables, 185 exciting simulcast races, 133 thrilling live races, 2 fabulous restaurants (all in) ONLY 1 PLACE,Ž according to the web-site, that wouldnt be enough. On any kind of gambling issue that comes up before the state legislature, Im recusing myself „ but I can com-ment as president of the track,Ž says Rep. Rooney. We would not be in favor because it would hurt us, in Palm Beach County. If theres a tweaking or amending to include us, we would be for it.Ž That tweaking „ call it jockeying „ is already in process, perhaps: Sen. Bog-danoff suggested last week that her bill is just a starting place, and adjustments in the proposed tax rates to pari-mutuel gaming venues with slot machines may be welcome. She and Rep. Fresen also said they would move to require the new casino-resorts to repay money lost if the Seminoles no longer pay taxes at the current level. Even then, life could get a lot harder for gaming interests now solidly in business, says Rep. Rooney. The brother of U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, a Tequesta Republican recently named co-chair with U.S. Reps. Connie Mack and Ander Crenshaw of Mitt Romneys Florida campaign for president, Rep. Rooney is also a member of the Rooney family that has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers foot-ball franchise for almost 80 years. Just as in football, he has enough competition in gaming as it is, he suggests. These (casino-resorts) would do the same thing that the Indians are doing to us now „ draw people away from us,Ž he explains.The crime and lost-money debateOne problem critics frequently cite „ and proponents deny „ is the advent of crime, and the loss of income that would otherwise flow into neighboring tourist businesses. The critics point to gambling meccas in Nevada and New Jersey where they say state or local economies are broken and crime, gambling addictions and other troubles are rampant as reasons to avoid bringing in casino resorts. When Lee County Commissioner Frank Mann ran for lieutenant governor in the 1980s, he toured Atlantic City, N.J., which was then expanding its casino resort gaming in hope of resurrecting a blighted and troubled city. That never happened,Ž says Commissioner Mann. The casino strip might have gotten better, just like in Las Vegas, but in 15 years, the city went bankrupt. The environment outside of the casinos was a slum, and remains so to this day.Ž But proponents say analysts who equate higher crime with well-managed, well-regulated gambling casinos are misjudging what happens. Comparisons to Las Vegas and Atlantic City are not valid,Ž insists Ms. Kinnaman. Given Floridas prominence as a vacation destination, it makes sense to offer top-quality entertainment choices including a limited number of casinos „ just as tourists or conventioneers can experience at most vacation destinations around the world now. Of course there are potential problems with all growth, development or change, but the regulated gaming industry here is to be applauded for its high standards for self-policing and good corporate citizenship.Ž But that logic does not assuage the anxiety of Commissioner Mann, or of such state legislators as Rep. Aubuchon. We have all the natural assets „ weather, fishing, and 100 golf courses „ every reason for this to be a tour-ist destination,Ž Commissioner Mann explains. I chair the Tourist Development Council, and I told them two days ago that people on those islands (Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach) better get ready for a giant sucking sound as money that used to go there to keep your hotels, motels and restaurants ac-tive will now be sucked into and spent in a casino „ or people will shorten their visit to the islands, where they might have stayed five days, say, to only three. Everybody loses at a casino. The only people who win are the casino owners.Ž Which is why jumping too quickly, for state legislators or local voters, either one, is a mistake, in Rep. Aubuchons view.  I have grave concerns that out of our desperation to improve our unemploy-ment picture, we will grab at a short-term fix. And by doing that we will create long-term problems.Ž Q Current Florida law allows the full range of gaming, including Vegas-style slots with such games as blackjack and baccarat only in casinos owned and operated by the Seminole or Miccosukee tribes, but that would change with passage of the new bill.Pari-mutuel gaming venues in Florida that are now paying a 35-percent tax on their revenue, and Indian-controlled gaming that provides annual sums of roughly $250 million in return for the state’s guarantee of a monopoly on such business, would be threatened, analysts say. >> Rep. Matt Caldwell:“I’m ambivalent toward both the proponents and opponents of gambling — both are vociferous. I don’t think gambling is the solution to all our scal woes. You can’t build your nancial house on the back of gambling. “But the opponents are extremely convinced it creates new social ills. “Maybe. But I think addictive, compulsive gamblers are already doing it — they probably go to some illegal slot in the region somewhere. Those problems do increase to some extent when you have casinos, but I think they bring more to light than new social ills. So I’m not animated one way or the other. “At the county level, in Lee, I think voters have to decide for themselves. “But in the report by the state economists that came out Friday, their analysis is that after three years we would lose money because the 10 percent tax rate (proposed on the new casinos) is too low to replace the Seminoles paying more than $250 million a year, per the contract that says they’re the exclusive providers. “If we were promised that it would be a net revenue gain for the sate, I might be more inclined to get in the mud and work it out. But that may not be the case. “Now, if we’re going to lose money, that’s a non-starter — were already $2 billion in the hole. So there would have to be some serious changes (in the bill) based on that report for me to support it.”>> Consultant Brenda Kinnaman:“Florida should be careful to not allow any segments of industry to dictate how destination casinos and all regulated gaming will be developed and regulated. It is particularly important to allow for all quali ed businesses to compete on a level playing eld. In the establishment of a gaming board and the associated infrastructure, it is important not to exclude any quali ed gaming testing labora-tories. The testing laboratories test all equipment and play an essential role in assuring that all casinos are operating properly. “Some jurisdictions have awarded monopoly or a sole vendor contract to a testing lab. This is poor public policy and a mistake to avoid, if Florida is to have model regulated gaming. “Florida has an opportunity to take advantage of all that has been learned over the past 20 years, as many states have legalized casino gaming. The establishment of a gaming board will be essential. Even more important is the selection of the founding executive director. “Such a development (as a proposed casino resort in Lee County) would bring lots of jobs, both during the construction phase and long-term at the casino and associated hotel, restaurants, retail, convention hall, and other attractions or venues. There is a big boost to the economy due to related shopping, hotel nights, home purchases, and so on of all types of goods and services. A major destination casino development is needed in Southwest Florida and will be a terri c addition for this popular tourist destination.”>> Lee Commissioner Frank Mann:“I have not been at all shy about saying that I do not support this, because it will negatively affect our way of life. “The tourist industry might think this will be a great draw, but when people leave the casino they will leave with a lot less money than when they arrived. And they won’t spend it at other places where they would have spent it. “It’s not just the quality of life or the glitz and glamour that bothers me, it’s the money laundering, the prostitution, all the things that come with gambling. It will have a negative impact on the wholesome reputation and quality of life we have now. “Everybody loses at a casino. The only people who win are the casino owners.”>> Retired planner Wayne Daltry:“The studies are online, but few start with the premise, ‘what is the local economy now, and will the proposal grow the economy or drain it?’ Vegas didn’t have much, so for them it was an economic growth measure, and since Vegas/Nevada is in worse shape than Florida in the contracting econ-omy, foreclosures and crime, I can’t see why our Legislature is dashing to emulate them. The studies seem to state that the state government gets the tax revenue and the localities get the shaft. “(A resort casino) is a Super Walmart approach: The biggest thing in town gets the money and ships it to a very few out-of-town owners. What gets left behind are the gambling addictions, the lost incomes of money spent within the community, and the lost wholesome (so to speak) tourist and retirement image. The number crunching (by pro-gambling lobbyists) seems to have overlooked that opportunity cost of money on the local economy. Right now, a gambling addict is a tragedy, but with casinos, 10,000 gambling addicts will just be a statistic. “Graft and corruption also centralizes. And Florida, which low-balls everything, will lowball law enforcement and casino oversight. “Our economy is tourists, who add to the economy in many, many local businesses, and retirees, who do the same. Their incomes aren’t going up, and for retirees, the threats to social security and Medicare will adversely affect our economy. Adding a casino (or several) will help, how? How has the dog track, the lotto, etc. helped our economy? “If the state legislature gets a new source of revenue, they will cut taxes for the wealthy to balance out the income. It is what they do. “Gambling is tied to the premise that it is good to get from the many so the few prosper. But that isn’t wisdom — for the many, anyway, and the few sure have been buying an awful lot of laws lately.” O in the know

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 There are many events going on each weekend throughout our communities that celebrate the diversity of cultural traditions in South Florida. These funfests are overflowing with offerings of delight. We wander leisurely through the open-air food courts and sample a special taste of this-and-that and immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of color, music, costume and language that are unique to each cul-tural tradition. Thousands attend these events; their popularity assured by their open invita-tion to all to add a little spice to life that is a refreshing change from the predicable familiarity of their own traditions. Our homegrown cultural ambassadors work many months to make it all come together and lead by organizing the celebrations with the help of hundreds of volunteers. These are our neighbors and they are passionate and eager to share the delight of traditions imported from often-distant places. In South Florida, the demographics of change have been at work a long time and diversity is everyone s neighbor, whether you are from New York or Guatemala. This makes the journey around the world available to us without a long and tedious journey. The Feast of Little Italy in Jupiter last week offered for a brief weekend the opportunity to remember and participate in a cultural happening that has deep historical roots in urban America. The festivals founder, Jerry Somma, expressed the vision behind the Italian festival on the events website this way: Its not just about a street in New York, Boston, Chicago or other city; its about what that neighborhood represents, the place where our ancestors first migrated, stayed together, worked, shopped, loved, raised their children and began their journey to obtain the American Dream.Ž Those roots reach all the way back to the mother country and now their descen-dants carry forward their predecessors values: a love of family, a strong work ethic, a desire and passion for freedom and the love and celebration of life reflected in music, art, and cultural traditions. If you attended the Feast of Little Italy, then you no doubt savored the many ways in which our lives as Americans have been enriched by this introduction of Bella Italy into the weave of our own urban commu-nities in American society. Brava! South Florida is a great melting pot of diverse cultures: Latino, Indian, Jews, Afri-can, Greek, Thai, Italian, Japanese, Irish, Cuban, Bahamian, Vietnamese, Peruvian, Haitian, Creole, and on and on, so no one need be deprived of opportunities for cultural exchanges that enlighten and broaden our understanding of the world we live in. That we celebrate the richness of the diversity in our midst is a strong indicator of the well-being of our commu-nities. This grand exposition of cultures is an economic and social boon for our Main Streets, too, so it is ironic that the public demeanor toward cultural celebrations is in stark contrast to the very negative con-versation taking place in our country on issues of immigration. The immigration quarrels reminds me of the old 50s movie starring Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of EveŽ that was a true story about the multiple per-sonality disorder affecting an unfortunate housewife. How can the very disparate versions of personality that shape our dis-cussion of immigration fit into one politi-cal body of thought on this subject? The spectrum of our domestic dissonance ranges from rage to enthusiasm. The first generation immigrants that arrived here from distant places were rare-ly greeted with affirmation and respect for their culture and country of origin. It took many years to bridge those divides. Philanthropy asserts that if we can come together, build those bridges to a path forward, and celebrate with joy the diverse roots from which our nation springs, we are doing something that is right and good for the well-being of nation and our com-munities. The South is a well-worn battleground in the struggle for civil rights. Wed like to think those days are over. Our cultural celebrations are a de facto repudiation of this shameful past of injus-tice and inequality. But we have grown increasingly careless about the poisoned arrows we sling when immigration issues come to the fore. We should remember the progeny of our troubled past is the terrible cli-mate of fear that, on a dark night, in a lonely spot, stalks and envelopes anyone guilty of being different; and, if we arent careful, that place of alienation as the otherŽ could one day be used to describe us all. 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 yourcommunityfoundation.org. Jill checked the mirror one last time. Lately, she had been paying extra attention to her wardrobe and makeup before she left home. She didnt want to admit that she had begun to look forward to her chance meetingsŽ with Greg at work. It seemed like theyd been running into each other more often, and that he had started lingering at her desk, always with a smile on his face, a ready compliment and a witty anecdote. She was a little surprised, but very flattered, when he had sent her a string of texts last week. However, what had surprised her the most was the flirty way she had responded and how much she had begun to look forward to the teasing innuendos. Jill (names have been changed) couldnt help but feel a bit guilty when she sat at dinner with her husband, Jeff, concerned that her friendship with Greg was perhaps not quite right. But she defiantly pushed the discomfort aside, reminding herself that things with Greg were strictly platonic. Nothing had happened. Besides, Jeff was always buried in his BlackBerry. He hardly paid attention to her anymore. It was invigorating to be complimented by an appreciative friend who noticed whether she had a new haircut: Someone who seemed to truly enjoy conversations with her.If a person has to pause to consider whether an allegedly platonic friendship has become too friendly,Ž they have probably already crossed a dangerous line that can seriously compromise their commit-ted long-term relationship. As the late Shirley Glass, a leading expert on infidelity, points out in her widely quoted book, Not Just Friends,Ž the workplace and the Internet have become fertile breeding grounds for friendships that can sl owly and insidiously turn into love affairs. In most cases, people do not intentionally set out to betray their partners. Rather, when they do not take special care, they may find themselves reaching out more and more to a relationship that offers positive reinforcement and excite-ment. What feels better than spending time with an admiring, receptive third party, sharing increasingly more person-al confidences and experiences? As the intensity of the extra-curricular friendship heats up, they may have entered a domain of secrecy and deception, drawing this other person closer, while putting strain and distance on the primary relationship. Ideally, our committed relationships should be the protected place that feels secure enough to share our strongest emotions. If our partner is NOT the one we regularly turn to with our most important confidences, we are missing out on an important dimension of intimacy. Glass promotes a metaphor throughout her book that helps couples delineate how to define clear boundaries and pro-tect their relationships. She discusses the image of walls and windowsŽ to symbol-ize the levels of emotional intimacy within the marriage and within the affair.Ž As Glass points out You can have intimacy in your relationship only when you are honest and open about the significant things in your life. When you withhold information and keep secrets, you create walls that act as barriers to the free flow of thoughts and feelings that invigorate your relationship. But when you open up to each other, the window between you allows you to know each other in unfil-tered, intimate ways. In a love affair, the unfaithful partner has built a wall to shut out the committed partner and has opened a window to let the affair partner in. To establish a mar-riage that is intimate and trusting after an affair, the walls and windows must be reconstructed to conform to the safety code and keep the structure of the mar-riage sound so that it can withstand the test of time. The arrangement of walls and windows nurtures your marriage and pro-tects it from outside elements and inter-ference. To be healthy, every relationship needs this safety code: the appropriate placement of windows and walls.Ž Lying and deceitful acts erode the security, integrity and intimacy of a couple. Not everyone can survive the hurt and anger. Picking up the tattered pieces can be heartbreaking and exhausting. When facing the repercussions of a betrayal, many people realize they do NOT want to lose their primary relation-ships. Addressing concerns sooner, rather than later, might head off irreparable dam-age before things have careened too far out of control. If a person becomes aware that they have entered dangerous territory with another person, it behooves them to reach out to their partner to address the distance they are feeling: to open the windows and find a way to rebuild walls to protect their bond. It takes tremendous patience and perseverance to address a relationships vul-nerabilities and to repair the damage. Both parties must be on board to move through their hurts to solidify the bound-aries necessary to shield them from out-side influences. They must find a way to join together, as a cooperative team, to face lifes demands, whether it be finances, employers, in-laws, etc. They have to make a conscious decision to respect and sup-port each other, even when they disagree, and must be determined to come up with compromises they can live with. I have met many couples who have decided that their relationship is defi-nitely worth the effort. They were able to successfully tackle the challenges and move through their disappointments and anguish to forge a relationship that will have to be very different, but potentially even better than before.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 A17 Andrew Butler, an associate professor in The Scripps R esearch Instit utes Department of Metabolism and Aging in Jupiter, has been awarded $1 million in funding over the next two years to further his research into a novel pro-tein with the potential to improve the understanding and future treatment of diabetes. The award comes from Novo Nordisk, an international healthcare com-pany based in Denmark recognized as a world-leader in diabetes treatment. The Novo Nordisk Diabetes Innova-tion Award Program was launched in 2011 to help scientists substantiate early research efforts that could result in new treatment options for diabetes and obesity. Mr. Butlers two-year research project, titled the Investigation of a Novel Peptide Hormone in Diabetes Treat-ment,Ž was selected from more than 80 submitted proposals from U.S. and Canadian research institutions. The research involves a peptide hormone secreted by the liver called adropin. Animal models have shown that peptide hormones play an important role in regulating glucose levels and fatty acid metabolism and that irregular function of these hormones can have a direct effect on an individuals risk of develop-ing obesity and/or diabetes. We were studying animal models of insulin resistance as precursor to type 2 diabetes, when we came across adropin,Ž Mr. Butler said. We found it provocative that this particular peptide hormone was distributed in the brain, liver, and pancreas „ three tissues that are of great interest to those of us in the diabetes research field.Ž Mr. Butler noted that adropin seems to play a role in maintaining normal insulin sensitivity „ whereby only a relatively small amount of insulin is needed to maintain regular blood glu-cose levels. In type 2 diabetes, insulin sensitivity is often blunted, which means that the normal amounts of insulin produced by the body are no longer as effective in lowering blood glucose levels. What has not been established are the mechanisms and sites of action that effect glucose homeostasis (equi-librium),Ž he said. So thats what were going to spend the next two years find-ing out with the help of this research grant from Novo Nordisk.Ž The research will also explore adropins potential role as a protein-based therapy for treating type 2 dia-betes, a chronic disease that affects more than 300 million people world-wide, according to the World Health Organization. Clearly, there is an urgent need to identify new and more effective drugs for treating diabetes,Ž Mr. Butler said. Studying how adropin works in this regard could eventually contribute to this effort.Ž Q Scripps diabetes researcher gets $1 million from Novo Nordisk BUTLER

Viewers who capture the movie s breakaway thinking might find themselves distancing themselves from investment truisms and moving toward Moneyball-type invest-ment correlation studies and algorithms, moving closer to strategies that put the odds in their investing favor. The movie is based on Michael Lewis book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,Ž titled such as national league baseball was considered to be extremely unfair from the perspective of the smaller budget teams. That is, until Moneyball made entrance.The movie tells the story of Billy Beane, the general manager of the As, who adopted, for 2002s season, a system of analysis and selection of baseball play-ers using metrics never previously used by major league teams. The need to break through the baseball industrys unquestioned analytic meth-ods was birthed in Beanes recognition that the As $40 million budget could never compete with the $126 million bud-get of the New York Yankees and other big-money teams. Beane embraced sabermetrics (acronym for Society for American Baseball Research), a system that identified players not on scouts radar screens but players with skills that were highly correlated with winning. To make a long story short, the As won 103 games in the 2002 season, including a string of 20 straight wins. Though the As failed to win the World Series that year, the wins did not go unnoticed by managed futures superstar John Henry, owner of the Boston Red Sox. Henry, though unsuccessful in recruiting Beane as GM for the Red Sox, was successful in implementing the new metrics in his subsequent years recruitment. The Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, a feat last accomplished in 1918. Most managed futures is based on algo-rithms and putting odds on the side of the investor „ right up Henrys invest-ing alley.From where did sabermetrics come? From the land of algorithms: MIT. A mechanical engineer, Earnshaw Cook, undertook an academic challenge: to prove that conventional stats (batting order, hit-and-run play, sacrifice bunt, use of relief pitchers, etc.) were poorly predictive of winning games. He refuted conventional wisdom in his book, Percentage Baseball.Ž Though rejected by mainstream baseball, his find-ings were furthered by Bill James, a name oft referenced in MoneyballŽ by the assistant GM hired by Beane, a Yale geek whose religion was sabermetrics and whose preacher was James.MoneyballŽ offers analogies to modern day investing. (And, no, I do not think that undervalued players/invest-ments can be found through fundamental analysis by investment scouts/portfolio managers. In fact, I think that is exactly what MoneyballŽ refutes.) Here are some lessons to be drawn from the baseball strategy: Baseball: The As ditched widely accepted baseball practices such as bun-ting and stealing bases as they calculated them to be far too risky; on the other hand, the As adopted strategies that put odds of winning in their favor. Investing: Several investment strategies are misperceived as too risky while many of the safeŽ traditional strategies are historically more volatile and have had greater drawdowns. Baseball: The As ditched relying on scouts fundamental and psychological analysis of a player and switched to selection based on sabermetric stats with the highest correlations to winning. Investing: Many investors rely exclusively on fundamental analysis and gut feelings. Computerized, non-emotional algorithmic systems can create trading strategies that are highly correlated to outsized investment returns. Baseball: The As did not take a player predicting a change in his on-base and slugging stats. Investing: Much fundamental investing hinges on predictions of future changes „ improvements that might never come to pass. Much of technical investing is a reaction to an existing trend; it does not predict a change. Baseball: The As did not want one or two big superstars as they needed to cre-ate a portfolio mix that translated into a well-functioning team; they didnt want players all with the same talents. Investing: Investing is really about asset allocation or the portfolio com-ponents which are not correlated with each other and have the capacity to make moneyƒnot just fill space. It is not about counting onŽ just one asset class. Baseball: The As favored a high slugging percentage; the ability to hit with power was highly valued. Investing: Invest in assets that have the potential to have explosive gains but use risk management to cut losses. True to any baseball team is that nine players are on the field but 25 players comprise a team. I wonder how many investors play their nine best ideas, each in a different position or role, not dupli-cative of each other and not correlated with each other. I wonder how many investors get out of an investment posi-tion when it is not performing and rotate into something that is performing. Money management has already moved into algorithmic systems for a reason; the systems are winning the unfair investment game.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 A19 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYCarl J. Minardo has been named vice president of the Max Planck Florida Foundation. The non-profit foundation supports the Max Planck Florida Insti-tutes scientific research as well as its educational programs by attain-ing private philanthropic support from individuals, corporations, and foundations across the United States and with organizing and coordinat-ing all fundraising programs in sup-port of the institute, according to a statement from the foundation. As we continue to prepare for the future by establishing and building our endowment, it is vital that we have someone on board with Carls top-flight fundraising and financial skills,Ž said Dr. Claudia Hillinger, vice president of institute development and president, in the statement. I have no doubt that his exemplary development expe-rience and in-depth knowledge of the South Florida community, as well as of the national philanthropic landscape, will help us achieve our goals.Ž Mr. Minardo will be responsible for establishing the fundraising activities, programs and initiatives of the foundation. Although the state of Florida and Palm Beach County, together, have dedicated generous funding to establish the institute, after a 10-year period MPFI will become dependent on philanthropy, grants and com-mercial activities in order to under-write its projected annual operating budget, the statement said. By establishing the foundation and building a permanent endowment, MPFI is taking steps to ensure that the state and countys investment is well protected. Scientists at the Max Planck Florida Institute are engaged in research that is tremendously exciting and that has enormous potential to impact the lives of millions of peo-ple around the world,Ž Mr. Minardo said in the statement. As a result, the Max Planck Florida Foundation is also a very exciting place to be. I am looking forward to working with the staff to ensure that the Institute has the funding it needs to thrive well into the future.Ž Mr. Minardo was the executive director/campaign director of insti-tutional advancement for Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lau-derdale. And he was director of financial development for the Greater Palm Beach Area chapter of the American Red Cross, where he managed the Red Cross International Ball at Mar-a-Lago. Q Max Planck names new foundation vice president Mall puts Santa on holdGardens wants to celebrate one holiday at a timeTwas the month before Christmas and all through the mall, Not a Santa was stirring, nary a light nor a ball. The colors of autumn still were to be found, All yellow and orange and tinges of brown. There was no red, no green, no tinsel in sight. Could it be Christmas was forgotten, Amid some horrid oversight?Well, not quite.We had gotten feedback in past years, sometimes retailers in shopping centers put up their decor too soon,Ž said Michele Jacobs, director of mar-keting and operations for The Gardens Mall. We said, Why not celebrate one holiday at a time?Ž The next big holiday is Thanksgiving. The Forbes Company, owner of The Gardens Mall, is not alone. Nordstrom, one of the malls five anchor department stores, also is wait-ing until after Thanksgiving to deco-rate. At Nordstrom stores, there are signs that read, At Nordstrom, we wont be decking our halls until Friday, Novem-ber 25th. Why? Well, we just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. Ž For Ms. Jacobs, the logic is simple. Its really about the guests and making sure families enjoy each holiday and that they dont feel the commercializa-tion of the holiday so soon,Ž she said. Lets celebrate Halloween, lets get through Thanksgiving first.Ž The mall was to begin preliminary decorating on Nov. 16, Ms. Jacobs said, adding it takes about six days to install the miles of lights and trims. Santa comes to the mall at 8 a.m. Nov. 26. We want to get through Black Fri-day, and then Satur-day morning Santa will arrive in a very grand way,Ž she said. Which is?He will rappel from the rafters in the Grand Court,Ž she said. Ms. Jacobs said the holiday goes beyond the story of Jesus. Its really about the season and the celebration of the season and less about the meaning of Christianity,Ž she said. And being a retailer at heart, its thrill-ing this time of year.Ž How so?Everyone is very optimistic. I think the sentiment across the board, particu-larly with our retailers, there, is great optimism,Ž she said. Were seeing our seasonal guests arrive earlier. The pace has been good.Ž It doesnt hurt that the mall has added three new retailers, either. The last three retailers we opened are world-class names,Ž she said, citing David Yurman jewelry, A/X Armani Exchange clothing and Henri Bendel clothing and accessories. And thats part of malls mission.We provide an exceptional shopping experience where there is world-class retail,Ž she said. Q Nov. 25-Dec. 24: The Gardens Holiday Suite is in the Nordstrom Court (next to Mayor’s). Complimentary holiday gift-wrapping is offered for Gardens Mall holiday purchases. Gratuities will bene t Easter Seals of Palm Beach County and The ARC of Palm Beach County. The suite will be open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. daily.Nov. 25: The mall will open at 7 a.m. Black Friday. Nov. 26-Dec. 24: Photos with Santa begin at 9 a.m. Nov. 26 and continue throughout the holiday season during mall hours. Nov. 26-Dec. 19: The Salvation Army Angel Tree at The Gardens Mall bene ts children in need throughout Palm Beach County. Nov. 27, Dec. 4 and Dec. 11: Pet photos will be taken with Santa on three consecutive Sundays, from 7:30-9:30 p.m., with advance reservations made at the Information Desk. Space is limited and reservations are required. Customers are asked to purchase photos and can bring their own cameras to take photos. Exotics, such as reptiles, rodents, insects and livestock are not permitted.Nov. 30: The Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce and hYPe Young Profes-sionals host a joint Holiday Mixer & Toy Drive at The Gardens Mall.

TRIPLE YOUR SAVINGS WHEN YOU GO GREENWITH REBATES, TAX CREDITS & DISCOUNTSBY SEANCOCHRANEIts true: Floridians can now ef-fectively triple dip in ac cessing “nancial support for going green. For example, a homeowner who re-places an old electric hot water unit with an energy-saving solar hot water unit, a hybrid heat pump unit, or tankless gas water heater may take advantage of sev-eral rebates (from FPL or FPUC). Over and above this, Federal tax credits of up to 30% can be ac-cessed. For businesses, the added bonus of accelerated deprecation can help offset some of the costs of going green. Think of it this way: The rebates, tax credits and discounts can account for 50 … 60% of the product cost, and the balance can be paid off, in bite size payments, over a few years (with the money that you would pay to the util-ity company for power anyway). You end up owning the system and saving a bundle in the long run. Its a really smart play, as the compounded savings can add up to up to more than $100,000 over the life of the system. For many it is hard to keep up with where and how to access these rebates, grants and or tax incentives. To this end, I will try to explain what is on offer. The incentives include:›=GL:f]]\ijlgkf-.,`ei\ bates for converting to tankless gas water heating. See www.fpuc.com/rebates/index.html for more information. ›=GCf]]\ijX('''i\YXk\]fi changing an electric water heater to a solar water heater. See www.fpl.com/landing/solar _rebate/residential.shtml for more information. ›=GCXcjff]]\ijjfcXigfn\i rebates to homeowners of $2 per watt for “tting solar power to their homes For example, a 10-kilowatt PV Solar system would net a rebate of $20,000. For businesses, the rebate is increased to $50,000 for a 33-kilowatt solar power system. More information can be found at http://www.fpl.com/land-ing/solar_rebate/residential_pv.shtml ›K_\=\[\iXc>fm\ied\ekf]]\ij a tax credit of 30% off of the total installed value for con-verting to approved, energy-saving products such as so-lar water heaters, hybrid heat pumps, and tankless gas units, solar power, skylights and solar powered roof ventilators.

Gordon, Esquire Brinkley Morgan Marital and Family Law Partner FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 BUSINESS A21 KOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTINGEarly Thanksgiving dinners required hard work and special toolsThanksgiving dinner in America during the 18th and early 19th centuries was very different than it is today. The tradi-tional menu today includes turkey, cran-berry sauce, potatoes, corn, fruit and pumpkin pie. But at the first Thanksgiv-ing, potatoes were unavailable. Cranber-ries were nearby but there was no sugar, so probably the berries were not eaten. Think about the problems the Pilgrims faced. They had to find and kill meat or fish for dinner. There were no ovens, and records suggest there were about 150 people at the first Thanksgiving dinner and only four women to do the cooking. Cooking was done over an open fire. Roasting took a long time, so the turkey was probably boiled. The Pilgrims ate lobster, goose, cod fish, venison, rabbit, cheese and a pudding made from hominy (corn). Throughout the next century, indoor kitchens and special equipment made cooking easier. But it was still difficult to keep food hot. One solution was the warming dish. It was made of silver or porcelain. The top looked like a normal plate, but it was made in two parts. The bottom section was deep enough to hold hot water that was poured in through a hole near the top. The water warmed the dish and the food. Today we have microwave ovens and electric heating trays, but every Thanksgiving dinner still takes a lot of work done by a few cooks. Q: We own a beautiful mirror that hung in my par ents home for many years. The decoration is cut into the glass. On the back side is a label that says Dec-orative Art Mirrors, Your Home Should Come First, Torstenson Glass Co., Chica-go.Ž Can you tell us something about this? A: The Torstenson Glass Co. was established in 1889 and is still in business in Chicago. The company makes and distributes flat glass and mirrors. The design on your mirror suggests that it was made in the 1920s or 30s. Q: I have an 11-inch fluted white Vitrock mixing bowl that was given to me at least 35 years ago by my husbands grandmother. It has a square 3-inch bottom. Can you tell me something about its age and value? A: Vitrock is a Depression glass pattern that was made by Hocking Glass Co. from 1934 to 1937. It has a raised flowered rim and often is called Floral RimŽ or Flower Rim.Ž Vitrock was made in plain white and sometimes in white with firedon colors. It also was made in solid red, solid green or with decal decorations. Hocking Glass Co. was founded in Lancaster, Ohio, in 1905. Its name was changed to Anchor Hocking Glass Corp. in 1937. The company is still in business, now operating as Anchor Hocking Co. Your mixing bowl would sell for $15 to $25. Q: Years ago my dad gave me a bread knife with a wooden handle. The word breadŽ is carved on the handle and the blade is marked George Butler & Co., Shef-field, England.Ž Can you tell me if it has value? A: George Butlers silver company dates back to 1681, but the original company w ent out of business in 1952. Rights to its name and marks were bought by other companies, so your knife may have been made aft er 195 2. In the 1970s, many wooden boards with the word breadŽ carved in the border were imported and sold at U.S. flea markets. You also could find knives with carved wooden handles like yours. A few were old, but most were later copies. The knives were selling for $75 to $100 then, and would sell for about the same now. Q: We inherited a pair of matching Victorian ewers and wonder where they were made. There are no marks on either one, and they cant actually hold any liquid because theres no opening in the top. The central porcelain section of each ewer is painted light green with pink roses. The gold-painted metal base and top are bolted onto the porcelain sec-tion. The top is an elaborately designed spout opposite a handle. A: Your ewers were designed simply to decorate a mantelpiece. They prob-ably were made in Europe at the end of the 19th century or the beginning of the 20th. If theyre in good condition, they would sell as a pair for $100 to $300. Tip: If you cant hang your vintage quilt or coverlet, display it on a guest-room bed. The best way to make textiles last is not to fold them. Large textiles should be rolled for storage.

T w t h T i terry KOVEL news@floridaweekly.com O COURTESY PHOTOThis unusual Chinese export dish was made in the 18th century to keep food warm. The dish’s Fit-zhugh pattern was used for full sets of dishes. The warming dish is 10 inches in diameter and sold for $211 at a 2011 DuMouchelles auction in Detroit.

As part of team ON YOUR MARKŽ the partners will ride 165 miles from Miami to Key West as part of the SMART Ride 8 on Nov. 18-19 „ all to benefit the Comprehensive AIDS Program of Palm Beach County (CAP). The SMART Ride s current top fundraisers have been cycling for years. At $16,000 raised this year to date, the pair have already exceed-ed their goal for fundraising, but are always looking for that next donation for CAP. When asked why he rides, Mr. Dishman said, My partner and I have been together for 23 years and have been very blessed. I believe it is important to pay it forward and contribute to our community where one small act of random kindness can have a significant impact. We are one human family. We must take care of each other.Ž He started riding, Mr. Dishman said, when Mr. Dillon talked him into it. We have cycled for several years and find that it is not only great exercise but also a time to spend great times with friends and great quality time together as part-ners,Ž Mr. Dishman said. Mr. Dillon said that in addition to the ride, the pair has raised money through a garage sale, hot dog happy hour,Ž chance drawings and generous clients.Ž CAP is a not-for-profit organization that provides and promotes education, advocacy and compas-sion to individuals and families infected and affected by HIV and AIDS through case management, prevention and other support ser-vices.

B13 X A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMIAMI BEACH WILL HOST THE 10TH EDItion of Art Basel Miami Beach from Thurs-day through Sunday, Dec. 1-4. More than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa will take part, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. To mark its 10th edition, Art Basel Miami Beach will inaugurate a new collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art on the Art Public sector, which will transform Collins Park with artworks and performances by renowned art-ists and emerging talents. For the first time, Art Video will be presented on the large-scale outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, designed by Frank Gehry. The free public viewings will be part of a number of events tak-ing place across Miami Beach. Over the past 10 years, Art Basel Miami Beach rapidly developed from a vibrant newcomer. Since 2002, Art Basel Miami Beach has extended its footprint by more than 50 percent, and increased the number of exhibiting galleries from barely 200 galleries in 2002 to more than 260 galleries at this year s edition. Outside the halls, public art works have transformed numerous locations across Miami Beach. The decade has also marked a time of great transformations in the cultural scene of South Florida and Miami Beach. Major private collec-tions, including De la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space, CIFO, Rubell Family Collection, World Class Boxing and the Margulies Collection, enlarged their presence in Miami Beach and their reputation across the world. In addition, public institutions such as the Miami Art Museum and MOCA North Miami are extending their scope with new building projects, scheduled for completion in 2013. The Art Basel Miami Beach Selection Committee has chosen more than 200 galleries for the main sector of this years show. More than half of the exhibitors come from outside the United States, with strong participation from Europe, 26 galleries from Latin America, nine galleries from Asia and two from Africa. The various sectors at the show include Art Kabinett, Art Nova, Art Positions and Art Public among other features and events. The full list of exhibitors can be found at www.artbasel.com/sectors.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 My friend Susie called with another sad dating tale. It seems the man she liked was about to propose to his girl-friend and their one-time flirtation would permanently slip from Susie s grasp. I am often her source of support when it comes to romantic crises, and I was genuinely disappointed to hear about her latest near-miss. What am I going to do?Ž she said on the phone as we talked. I could tell from her voice that she was close to crying. I was silent on my end. Just hold on,Ž I said. This will pass.Ž But I must have caught some of her distress, because I mentioned the inci-dent to another friend, Mike. Mike is one of those men youd want in your corner if you got into a bar fight. Hes broad-shouldered and thick-muscled, the kind of man who likes deer hunting and big trucks. But beneath that tough-guy exterior, hes surprisingly wise in the ways of women, and on more than one occa-sion hes called it just right when Ive relayed a story about a lovelorn girl-friend. You know what she needs?Ž Mike said, talking about Susies most recent love drama. I waited expectantly, hoping for a bit of that Mike wisdom. She needs a cheeseburger.ŽI laughed, but I was disappointed. A cheeseburger? I thought Susies prob-lems were a little heavier than that. Seriously,Ž he said. Thats the first thing she needs. Look at her.Ž I thought about it. Susie had been looking a little undernourished. Thats why shes so upset all the time. Shes hungry.Ž I had to give him that. So thats your recommendation?Ž He nodded sl owly, like the romantic sage he is. I thought about his suggestion during my own relationship rough period a few weeks later. I was distraught over a break-up, think-ing non-stop about the could-have-beens and what-ifs, and I wasted away, becoming weak and malnourished in my heartbreak. In the midst of this moping I remem-bered Mikes advice and suddenly found myself pulling into a Five Guys. I ordered a cheeseburger and it was the best decision I had made in ages. The burger was perfect „ rich and meaty and delicious „ and it made all my silly love problems seem just that: silly. The experience was so good in fact, so gratifying and overwhelm-ingly satisfying, that I started making cheeseburgers part of my daily routine. Those beefy hunks of comfort were good for my disposition „ both mentally and physically „ and I start-ed to fill out. All those places that had gone hollow in my sadness suddenly became round and soft and pillowy. It was not altogether a bad change. I started to notice the men I passed on the street giving me approving glances. They threw winks in my direction or smiled big inviting smiles. My new curves were part of this apprecia-tion, Im sure, but there was something more to it, as if the cheeseburgers had transformed me inside and out, helping me to radiate the bliss I had discovered between a bun. It turns out Mike had been wiser than I realized. Cheeseburgers are sometimes just the fix we need.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 B3 Lets say that on a given deal, your opponents bid and make four hearts, vulnerable. In that case, they score 700 points for winning the rubber and another 120 points for the trick score „ a total of 820 points. Now lets suppose you defeat the contract. In that event, youd be either 100 or 920 points richer, depending on how you view such matters. For example, you could argue that the only actual gain is the 100 points you wrote down on the score sheet. Alternatively, you could argue that you had improved your position 920 points by depriving declarer of 820 points and by scoring 100 points for your side instead. Regardless of which philosophy you adopt, the fact remains that theres still a big difference between a contract thats made and a contract thats defeated. All of which serves as an introduction to todays deal, where if you defend correctly against four hearts, you defeat the contract, while if you mis-defend, declarer gets home safely. Two hurdles must be surmounted. One arises at trick one, when East should over-take the spade king with the ace in order to continue with the queen. This is not a very challenging play, since East can easily afford to play the ace at trick one regardless of whether South has one spade, two spades or even no spades at all. The second hurdle arises when East plays a third spade at trick three. If South ruffs with the queen, West must be careful not to overruff with the king. If he does, declarer will have no trouble scoring the rest of the tricks. Instead, West should discard in the hope that East was dealt either the jack or ten of hearts, in which case West will eventually score both the king and nine of hearts to defeat the contract.

Before founding that organization, he established The Curato-rial Eye, which offered lectures, semi-nars, workshops, and mentoring to pho-tographers, collectors, and non-profits. “The Norton Museum, like any museum, is only as great as the cura-tors and the collec-tion,” Hope Alswang, the museum’s direc-tor and CEO, said in a statement. “With Tim Wride, the Norton Museum adds a significant curato-rial voice, and I look forward to working with Tim on what he has promised are some very exciting projects.

A colleague has a surprising mes-sage to deliver. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your partner might feel that you haven t been as open with him or her as you should be. Deal with this now, before it turns into something more difficult to handle.

CUP OF FRESHL Y BREWED COFFEE WITH ANY PURCHASE!“A Taste of Home in Every Bite!” FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 B13 ++ Is it worth $10? NoI ts a sign of the stature (or the apocalypse, depending on your perspective) that Adam Sandler is able to attract A-list star power to cameo in his films. And in the case of Al Pacino, its much more than a cameo. The godfather makes a full-fledged fool of himself, but has fun doing it so we have fun watch-ing him. If only the rest of Jack and JillŽ were as much fun. Mr. Sandler plays it straight as Jack, a family man father of two who runs a successful advertising company. He also goes for camp in drag as Jill, Jacks passive-aggressive and unattract-ive twin sister who comes to visit for Thanksgiving. I can just imagine this movie playing through Thanksgiv-ing, and visiting family members being taken to it by their hosts as kind of a hint-hintŽ to get the hell out already. Naturally, what starts as just a couple of days turns into a month-long visit, throughout which Jill tortures her womb-mateŽ Jack by making hostile comments and being an insensitive burden. At dinner, for example, she compliments the house and the chan-delier, then asks Jacks wife Erin (Katie Holmes) if its new. Erin says yes, to which Jill replies that she loved the old one better.Ž Its lazy dialog thats supposed to be cutting and funny and is really just hostile and groan inducing. In fact, Jill lacks so much self-awareness that in one scene she starts having a loud phone conversation while in a movie theater. When Jack yells and tells her to shut up, she starts crying and leaves. If you have anyone in your life like this, I feel sorry for you. Ironically, through it all Jill repeatedly refers to twin powersŽ and asserts to know what her brother is thinking, but at no point does she grasp that Jack cant stand the sight of her. Whats even harder to explain is that Mr. Pacino, playing himself, loves the sight of Jill. Given that Jack needs Mr. Pacino to appear in a commercial, this leads to many contrived scenes. Despite the weakness of director Dennis Dugans story and its blatant racism against Mexicans, theres a wholesome-ness here thats admirable. Also, from a technical standpoint its impressive to see Mr. Sandler act opposite himself. At times a body double with a green mask stands in for Jack/Jill as Mr. Sandler performs the other character, then his face is superimposed over the mask in postproduction to make it look like it was him all along. (See below for other tricks used). Jack and JillŽ marks the eighth collaboration between Mr. Dugan and Mr. Sandler, and its neither the best (Happy GilmoreŽ) nor the worst (Big DaddyŽ) of their efforts. Its likeable and forgettable, amusing but not mem-orable „ the kind of movie that makes you turn to your significant other and say mehŽ and then not even bother to talk about it over dinner. Q J. Edgar ++ The 50-plus year career of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio) is chronicled in this nicely staged but overlong biopic from director Clint Eastwood. Youll respect Mr. DiCaprios performance, but the de-saturated col-ors and slow pacing make the rest a bore. Rated R.Tower Heist +++ (Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda) After a Madoff-esque financier (Mr. Alda) loses their money, the employees of a New York City high-rise plot to steal the money hidden in his apartment. Nothing special here, but its amusing throughout and the story keeps you intrigued. Rated PG-13. Puss in Boots ++ (Voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis) In this pre-quel to the ShrekŽ franchise, Puss (Mr. Banderas) teams with Humpty Dumpty (Mr. Galifianakis) and Kitty Softpaws (Ms. 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. Q LATEST FILMS‘Jack and Jill’ dan HUDAK O www.hudakonhollywood.com CAPSULES >> Cinematographer Dean Cundey (“The Parent Trap”) describes a typical shot: “We’d shoot Adam as Jack. Then he’d go and get made up as Jill… we’d give him a little ear bud so he could hear his performance as Jack, which he’d just done. We had a monitor set up so he could see what Jack was doing. Finally, the on-set composi-tor could put it together as we did it — show us how it was going together so we could evaluate it and judge it.” in the know

In the 16th century C.E. the word occupy was used as a euphemism for the act of sexual intercourse. By the 17th century, not being euphemism enough, it was dropped from polite usage. Today we use the word to indicate the filling up of space and time. Or to engage the atten-tion. Or to seize.

In 2010, when the carousel was introduced, Berman Enterprises, owners of Downtown at the Gardens, established the Gifts of the SeasonŽ campaign as a way of giving back to the community. This year the campaign will once again mark the holiday season „ carousel proceeds will be donated to more than 30 local charities. More than $20,000 was donated in 2010 Gifts of the Season proceeds, and Downtown hopes to top that number this year. Kendall Rumsey, marketing director, said in a prepared statement that the Gifts of the Season Campaign allows us to give back to the community in a tangible way. Many of the organizations we work with are small and because of the guests who visit us at Downtown we are able to brighten their holidays with a check that can provide results for the charity.Ž In addition to the Gifts of the Season Campaign, Downtown has continued the program throughout the year. We have been overwhelmed by the opportunities to give back to our com-munity during this first year of the carousel. There is a tremendous need within the community and the partner-ships we have developed with count-less organizations has been incredibly rewarding,Ž Mr. Rumsey said. This years Gifts of the Season Campaign will kick-off on Black Friday, Nov. 25, with a huge birthday celebration for the Carousel. Throughout the day, guests will receive special surprises, strolling entertainers will be on hand to add to the fun and from 2-4 p.m. Whole Foods Market will offer cupcakes to guests. One lucky guest will win a Lifetime of Free Carousel Rides.Ž Downtown at the Gardens is located at 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Avenue in Palm Beach Gardens.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com C’est le temps du Beaujolais NouveauI ts Beaujolais Nouveau time. And for those who cannot wait to sample the new wine, Paris in Town Le Bistro will hold a Beaujolais dinner on Nov. 17. The event will include a three-course, prix fixe dinner with free wine tastings. An accordion player will provide the sounds of France. The light, fruity red wine has light tannins and is made from Gamay grapes grown in the Burgundy sub-region of Beaujolais. The wines distribution is carefully controlled. According to French law, all Beaujolais wines are released for distribu-tion no earlier than 12:01 a.m. the third Thursday of each November, a few weeks after the grapes have been har-vested. Heres a look at the menu owners Diane and Beni Himmich will offer: For the first course, diners will have a choice of carrot ginger soup, mixed green salad with goat cheese crouton or coquille St. Jacques (scallops in a Mornay sauce). With the second course, diners can choose from pork tenderloin in a mustard sauce a lancienne, pot au feu (beef stew), sole meuniere, or filet du boeuf au Roquefort (filet mignon with a blue cheese sauce) (an additional $8.95). Dessert includes choice of mousse au chocolat, crme caramel or bread pudding. For reservations, call 622-1616 or visit www.parisintownbistro.com. Pet event at Spotos: Join A Second Chance Puppies and Kittens Rescue at its Strut Your MuttŽ evening animal charity event, hosted by Spotos Oyster Bar in Palm Beach Gardens. The event will be held from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 17 at Spotos, PGA Commons, 4560 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are invited, and the first 50 people to donate $10 to A Second Chance Rescue receive a complimentary drink and goodie gift bag. A Second Chance is devoted to saving pregnant and nursing dogs and cats and their offspring, keeping them in a safe, healthy, foster environment and finding them families, while promoting animal welfare and the prevention of homeless animals by means of spay/neuter. Call (949) 903-9518 or visit www. asecondchancerescue.org. Tea time in Palm Beach: Dine as the upper crust did this season at the Flagler Museum. The museum will reopen its Caf des Beaux-Arts from Nov. 25-April 7. The cafe is in the glassed pavilion that houses Henry Flaglers personal rail car, and offers views of the Intracoastal Waterway. The prix fixe menu offers seven varieties of tea sandwiches, scones and sweets. Tea tickets are $22 for Flagler Museum members and $40 for non-members. Tickets include museum admission, tax, gratuity and admission to the changing exhibition gallery. Advance purchase is recommended.

A taste of fall at Field of Greens: The sandwich and salad place, which recently moved its Palm Beach Gardens location to Downtown at the Gardens, is offering its pumpkin bread this season. With last years pumpkin shortage, it had difficulty keeping the savory des-sert on the shelves. That shouldnt be a problem this year. The bread is available through Jan. 1 at $9.95 for a loaf or $2.15 for a slice. In addition to its location at Downtown, Field of Greens is open at City-Place in West Palm Beach and near the Mall at Wellington Green. Call 625-0036 or visit www.fieldofgreensonline.com. Wine goes up for bids: The Kravis Center will host its annual Palm Beach Wine Auction on Jan. 25 at The Break-ers in Palm Beach. More than 140 are expected to attend the invitation-only event that report-edly sells out each year and raises money for the Kravis Centers educa-tion programs. The auction will be under the direction of Michael Troise, retired auction director for NY Wines/Christies Fine and Rare Wine Department and an expert with more than 40 years of expe-rience in tasting, buying and brokering wines with vintages going back 200 years and more. The auction begins with a reception from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 25 in The Break-ers Tapestry Bar. It will be followed by a five-course dinner and wine auc-tion in The Circle Room. Tickets are $750 per person. Visit www.palmbeach-wineauction.org. Openings: Chef Allen Sussers Burger Bar is open at Donald Ross Village.
