But it could cost Lee County taxpayers millions, some say. South Florida drivers looking for their morning cup of Joe will find themselves listening to the tender tones of Terry. Thats right. Joe Raineri, host of Seaview Radios Cup of Joe Morning ShowŽ is leaving the station to become Jennifer Ross sidekick on WRMF. Hes become a great talent and Im going to miss him,Ž says Seaviews general manager, Chet Tart. Replacing Mr. Raineri on the as-yet unnamed show will be Terry Tuszka, who most recently worked at a station near Columbia, Mo. I was living in Mexico,Ž Mr. Tuszka says of the Missouri town where he lived. Just dont drink the water.Ž One of his first goals will be engaging listeners. Im most comfortable in the mornings, and the largest per-centage of my on-air has been in the morn-ings. Thats where I feel the most comfort-able,Ž he says. You can be more creative there and theres more listener involvement.Ž How so?The initial goal is to get listeners to buy in then be part of the show,Ž he says. They either make me or break me. They have a tendency of buying in.Ž That means listening to listeners.I could sit there for three hours and talk and talk and talk, but I think people really want to hear listeners on the air as much as me,Ž he says of the show, which airs weekdays from 7-10 a.m. Theyre basically what the show is all about, so lets invite them to the party.Ž And what better place to party than South Florida? Im totally stoked.

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 DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 The gift-giving season is upon us now like a wet blanket in a house fire. And it comes this year with a new English trans-lation of the text and prayers used in the Catholic Mass, the gift of an increasingly Latinate church to the faithful. Starting this week, when the priest says, The Lord be with you,Ž the faithful will no longer reply, And also with you,Ž as they have for a few decades. Now theyll intone these words, instead: And with your spirit.Ž Whatever the words, I can get behind the spirit „ after all, its the spirit of L ove, Im told. Who could disdain that? The faithful may not like to say (as they will have to say from now on) that Jesus is consubstantial with the Father,Ž rather than one in Being with the FatherŽ „ and why not? Because they may not like lan-guage that rolls off the tongue like a sports car mounted on square wheels. But thats Latin for you, not Love. Love in any translation requires the same old thing: a willingness to consider and act for the good of another. And so in the spirit of Love „ Christmas Love, Chanukah Love or any other Love with a capital L „ I offer my three annual gift suggestions for those who may need them most. Bury-Your-Differences Gift:In the Love-Thine-Enemies spirit of the true Mass, simply ask yourself: What can you do in the season of Love for that ex-spouse whos consubstantial with a wart hog, or that former business partner you hope takes up skydiving without a para-chute, or that thankless adult child who hasnt called home in a year to tell you that you were right (he shouldnt have gone on the road with the band, hes very sorry about the four DUIs, and could you please wire him $500 to get home)? Answer: You bury your differences, literally. After your drive to lot 112 of site C-2 in the Garden of Companions section of the Palm Beach Memorial Park in Lantana where plaques are set flush with the lawn, you buy lot 112, along with an $800 concrete vault, for a total of about $1,950, according to finalarrangementsnetwork.com This lovely space is beautifully landscaped and situated to offer unparalleled, heaven-front views of the vast beyond. Make your arrangements now to stand graveside with that SOB or that DOB on your special holiday, and bury your mutual differences in six feet of subterranean para-dise. Together, you can lay your past to rest.And if that wont work, you can always consider Plan B: Put the SOB himself in the hole „ in the name of L ove, of course. Stop-Illegal-Immigration-Now Gift:This is the ultimate in imaginative and practical gifts for that family member, rela-tive, close friend or office mate who intends to solve the illegal immigration problem personally, by talking it to death. We all know this person: The one who raises the subject of illegal immigration at every water-cooler conversation or office party. The one who blames illegals when the supermarket bakery runs out of his favorite donuts, or the light turns red just before she gets to it. The one who believes illegals should be shot or shipped back in a box without wasting bullets, whichever seems most convenient at the time. Now you can offer the unique Personal Impenetrable border (the PI). This mobile, six-foot-high barbed wire fence on wheels is designed for the individual who cares too much. It comes in three sizes: Small (six-foot circumference), Medium (nine-foot circumference) or Large (12-foot cir-cumference). The Personal Impenetrable is capable of rolling to work, to the store, to the mall, to the park, to the local bar, or to the easy chair in front of the television. To prepare the PI, simply visit any farmsupply store and purchase the following: one four-wheel dolly (about $200); one sheet of plywood (about $40 depending on the size); eight 4x4 fence posts (about $120); one 200-foot roll of barbed wired (about $50). Total cost: $410. A. Secure plywood to dolly. B. Nail four fence posts flat to the plywood base. C. Secure remaining four fence posts in upright position to the base posts. D. Stretch six strands of barbed wire around the outside of the upright fence posts. Finally, place your favorite alien fighter inside the fence and let him, or her, live each day alien free. (Note: Deluxe models may include special gun emplacements „ $100 each for materials „ and an intensive two-day crash course in Spanish profanity priced at a modest $200, so your favorite alien fighter can shoot and shout simultaneously at any who try to cross his borders.)Get-Real Jingoist Bumper Sticker:Remember that fabulous bumper sticker that gave so much pleasure to so many for so long without wasting a lot of words „ the one that implied any who werent with us were against us? Of course you do. America: Love It or Leave ItŽ still takes the cake as the wham-bam-thank-you-maam model of laconic patriotic convic-tion „ the sticker you could slap on when all those damn lefties started questioning great American traditions like war and poverty and corporate gifts to politicians and poorly paid teachers and major corpo-rations that pay no federal income tax. So where is it now? Well, the Love-It-Or-Leave-It crowd discovered an unpleasant little fact. All kinds of people, many of them small and brown and capable of walking great distances through rough terrain, sashayed on up here from south of the border and read that bumper sticker. They also fell in love with this big fat inhospitable country. And now they wont leave because the good ol boys told them they dont have to. Not if they love it. So now, for those who need a new get-real bumper sticker, one that doesnt equivocate, one that doesnt depend mere-ly on a value such as Love of Country to define who goes and who stays, how about this: AMERICA „ Love it or Leave it if you arent white, working, anti-tax, anti-immigrant, anti-government, and anti-everything else.Ž Cost: About $10, not including shipping, from yardsigns.org/makestickers. Make a jingoist feel good again, in the name of Love. Q COMMENTARY (Another kind of) Love Gifts y s h h c h y roger WILLIAMS O rwilliams@floridaweekly.com

What he should have said, in light of his administrations handling of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, is that America has become quite adept at blocking it. To delay the project for more than three years and then, after giving every indication that it would go through, announce the ultimate deci-sion will be kicked past the 2012 elec-tion takes hard work and brio. TransCanada wants to invest $7 billion in building a pipeline across the United States to carry oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast. If we were merely lazy, wed have accepted the project and the thousands of associated construction jobs long ago. That would be the path of least resis-tance, not to mention common sense. The presidents lazyŽ comment is one of a series of remarks carrying an undercurrent of disapproval of the country he is so luckless to govern. A few weeks ago, he observed that Americans had gotten a little soft and we didnt have the same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades.Ž At a San Francisco fund-raiser, he lamented that we have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam.Ž Obama is prone to the posture of the dispassionate critic, floating above the foibles of America. It never seems to enter his mind that he might have disappointed us, but he certainly seems to think that we have disappointed him. Weve been lazy and soft in our practices going back decades, hopeless until the advent of one Barack H. Obama, the would-be Redeemer President frustrated by the recalcitrant national material with which hes forced to work, Michelangelo with a bum piece of marble. The distance between President Obamas self-image and the reality is yawning. Ambition? His heroic stimulus bill funded roadwork to create tempo-rary insta-jobs and subsidized green-energy projects, some of which would have happened anyway. Imagination? He perpetually wants to send federal money to the states to prop up their existing unaffordable structures. Will-ingness to do the things necessary to build? He cant even disregard his left on Keystone XL. His National Labor Relations Board is harrying Boeing for the offense of building state-of-the-art aircraft in a nonunionized South Caro-lina plant. Its within the presidents power to do a few major things to make us more competitive. He could cut a deal with Republicans to reform individual and corporate taxes, exchanging lower rates for loophole closings. He could cut a deal restraining entitlements, sending a signal to the markets that Washington can begin to control its budget. Sen. Pat Toomey, a Penn sylv ania Republican on the super committee,Ž has offered a compromise plan along these lines. The president has shown no interest. He apparently prefers waging a blunt-force campaign against a do-nothing CongressŽ and carping about whats wrong with us. If this helps him win a second term, he can add poor judgment to his run-ning indictment. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Less than a month after Occupy Wall Street began, a group was gathered in New Yorks historical Washington Square Park, in the heart of Greenwich Village. This was a moment of critical growth for the movement, with increasing par-ticipation from the thousands of students attending the cluster of colleges and universities there. A decision was made to march on local branches of the too-big-to-fail banks, so participants could close their accounts, and others could hold teach-insŽ to discuss the problems created by these unaccountable institu-tions. Heather Carpenter, according to the federal lawsuit filed this week in New York, is studying to be a certified nursing assistant, working to pay for school as a counselor for mentally disabled people at a group home on Long Island. Her fiance, Julio Jose Jimenez-Artunduaga, is a Colombian immigrant, pursuing the American Dream, working part time as a bartender. They marched from Wash-ington Square Park to a nearby Citibank branch, where she went to the teller to close her account, explaining her frus-tration with the banks new monthly $17 fee for accounts with balances below $6,000. As described in the lawsuit, the teachin began with participants announcing the amount of their debt, discussing their student loan experience, and reciting sobering statistics related to the debt of college graduates.Ž The bank staff called the police, and Julio went outside to avoid any conflict. Heather closed her account and left as well. By that time, a large group of NYPD officers, including Chief of Department Joseph J. Esposito, as well as several plainclothes officers showed up. The police stormed into the bank, locked the doors and began arrest-ing those involved with the teach-in. Even though Heather was outside, a plainclothes officer identified her as a protester and told her to get back in the bank. She said she was a customer and showed her receipt. To her shock, as documented by video, Heather was grabbed from behind by a plainclothes officer who began forcing her into the bank. She screamed, but within seconds disappeared into the vestibule, surround-ed by a dozen cops, where she was roughly handcuffed and arrested. Julio was roughed up and arrested as well „ all for closing an account at Citibank. They spent more than 30 hours in police custody and were charged with resisting arrest and criminal trespass. A month later, the New York District Attorneys office indicated it would drop the charges at their court appearances. Heather and Julio still want to see Chief Esposito and the other arresting officers in court, though, for an explanation of the officers excessive force and unlawful arrest of the two. Just weeks after their arrest, on Nov. 5, thousands around the U.S. participated in Bank Transfer Day. Kristen Christian was upset with the announcement that Bank of America was going to charge a monthly $5 debit card fee. She created a Facebook event and shared it with her friends. Before long, Bank Transfer Day had 85,000 online supporters. She reported that 40,000 new accounts were created at nonprofit credit unions across the country that day. She said that the $5 fee, which Bank of America has since scrapped, illustrates how out of touch the executives of the large banks can be ... with Bank of America, the fee only applied to account holders with less than $20,000 in combined accounts. I couldnt support a business that would directly target the impoverished and working class.Ž Just after the financial crash in late 2008, activists in Oregon started looking into the creation of a state bank, mod-eled after the only state-owned bank in the U.S., in North Dakota. The cities of Portland, Ore. and Seattle, Wash., are now looking into shifting their massive municipal accounts away from the Wall Street banks. According to one report, Bank of America may lose upward of $185 billion from customers closing accounts. In January 2010, the Move Your Money Project formed, encouraging individuals to shift their funds to local and non-profit credit unions, to defund the Wall Street megabanks. Its organizers released a video based on the classic 1946 film of bank malfeasance, Its A Wonder-ful Life,Ž in which protagonist George Bailey fights to protect consumers from the greedy bank president, Mr. Potter. As Bailey exhorted in the film, This town needs this measly one-horse institution, if only to have some place for people to come without crawling to Potter.Ž The Move Your Money video ends with this message: If you leave your money with the big banks, they will use it to pay lob-byists to keep Congress from fixing the system ... dont just watch Its A Wonder-ful Life ... move your money.Ž Q „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 900 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback and now a New York Times bestseller. a l C a s b i amy GOODMAN Special to Florida Weekly O

BY JOHN D. COURIS, PRESIDENT & CEOJupiter Medical CenterIn America’s turbulent health care envi-ronment, “certainty” is in short supply. The nation’s health care delivery system is poised for transforma-tional change, spurred by federal budget pres-sures and the need for fundamental reform. For Jupiter Medical Center and hospitals across the U.S., the next few years will be both exciting and daunting. As Boomers age and demographics shift, hos-pitals must keep pace. Declining Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements challenge us to do more with less. Against this backdrop, it’s important for the community to know that Jupiter Medical Center has taken many steps to ensure it can provide “certainty” – cer-tainty that the hospital will be able to meet the community’s needs, will continue to deliver world-class care and will be here for future generations. In short, Jupiter Medical Center is well positioned to be among the hospitals that will thrive, with clarity of vision, pur-pose and focus. We continue to evolve as a patient-centered environment, where people work in high-performing teams to fulfill our commitment of bringing world-class health care close to home. Today, the hospital provides services on par with many of our nation’s top academic medi-cal centers. The many national accreditations we’ve achieved validate that we are a trusted source for world-class health care. Anticipating change, we have taken key steps in recent years to advance our sys-tems, infrastructure and scope of services. The Emergency Department was recently expanded, a new Cardiac Catheterization Lab is now open, and we initiated the Walsh Robotic Surgery Center of Excel-lence, led by Medical Director Dr. Donna Pinelli, which focuses on Gynecologic/Oncologic, Gynecologic/Fertility, Gyne-cologic, Thoracic, General and Urologic Surgery. Jupiter Medical Center’s nationallyaccredited Comprehensive Breast Care Program, which encompasses the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program, led by Medi-cal Director Dr. John A.P. Rimmer, and the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center, led by Chief of Radiology Dr. Lee Fox, was the first program in Palm Beach and Mar-tin counties to be recognized for its quality by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. The Niedland Breast Cen-ter is the only facility in Palm Beach and Martin counties to offer Tomosynthesis, a state-of-the-art imaging technology that provides 3 dimensional views of the breast to increase diagnostic accuracy and find breast cancer at an earlier stage. In addi-tion, the facility will also install a state-of-the-art bone density DEXA system, breast ultrasound units with elastography capability, positron emission mammogra-phy (PEM), which detects breast lesions as small as a grain of rice, and breast MRI, with a wide bore design to reduce anxiety and claustrophobia. Most recently, Jupiter Medical Center launched the area’s only truly comprehen-sive lung cancer program, under the lead-ership of Medical Director Dr. K. Adam Lee. The Thoracic Surgery and Lung Center is dedicated to prevention, early detection, treatment and care of patients with lung cancer and other diseases of the chest and lung. It offers a CT Lung Screening Program, Lung Nodule Clinic, and minimally-invasive Robotic Assisted Thoracic Surgery and Video Assisted Thorascopic Surgery. Our well-established Daniel C. Searle Clinical Trials Patient Access Program has flourished, with three full time team mem-bers dedicated to providing research trials to our community. Since its inception, the program offered close to 50 clinical trials, with 16 trials currently open. Most recent-ly, Jupiter Medical Center teamed up with State of the Hospital:An Update to the Community on Jupiter Medical Center John Couris SEE JUPITER, A6 X Advertorial FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 A5 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTwo parades „ one by land, one by sea „ a huge craft fair, tree lightings and a marathon festival help kick off the holiday season in Palm Beach County Dec. 1-7.

Scripps Florida to conduct research on human cancer tissue. Aside from the latest medical diagnostic and treatment options we offer our community, what sets us apart from other hospitals is our team members. We call them team members, not employees, because we are all on the same team, working toward the same goals. We share the same values, mission and vision. It is our people that really make a difference, and its our people that make each one of our service lines come alive. Last year, Jupiter Medical Center was one of only four hospitals nationally to receive the Laureate Award for Workplace Enhance-ment from the Jackson Group, a national surveying company for team member sat-isfaction. The award, which JMC received for the second consecutive survey period, is the highest single award the Jackson Group gives for team member satisfaction, which speaks volumes about the work cul-ture at Jupiter Medical Center. Financially strong and stable, the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation launched a $50 million capital campaign last year that will allow us to both create transfor-mational change and provide certainty of care well into the future. With exceptional donor support, that campaign is well on its way. We are currently in the midst of the single largest expansion in the hospitals history, renovating and building a total of 116,000 square feet of space to proac-tively meet the challenges of healthcare reform and the needs of the community. The first phase of the expansion, which is currently underway, is the construc-tion of the Raso Education Center, which will create an environment for educating the community on health and wellness through lectures and workshops, as well as a venue to train team members and physicians. This facility will also be a place where we train physicians from other healthcare organizations throughout the region and engage them in medical education and research. Focused on our communitys future, a $10 million donation from the Lawrence and Florence De George Trust kicked off our capital campaign to help create the new, 76,000-square-foot Florence A. De George Pavilion. The new building will dedicate its third floor to childrens and womens services. With healthcare reform looming, and the focus on bundled payments for musculoskeletal services, Jupiter Medical Center is taking a proac-tive approach to create a single patient experience, from admission to discharge, for our orthopedic and spine patients. The new building, which will connect to the existing hospital structure, will devote its second floor to The Anderson Family Orthopedic and Spine Center, a pro-gram that is already among Palm Beach Countys best. Patients will experience a closed-loop hospital stay, where surgery, dining and rehabilitation all occur on the same floor. The first floor will consist of a new cafeteria, kitchen, patient discharge suite and administrative offices. And the final phase of construction will be the renovation of about 50,000 square-feet in the main facility. When its all said and done, we will have added approxi-mately 75-100 new jobs to the community. Were centering this expansion project on specific strategies as health care reform takes hold, and specific needs within the community. In addition to the jobs created through the expansion of the hospital, another 150 net new jobs will be added to the communi-ty through JMCs innovative collaboration with NuVista Living to develop NuVistas $70 million Institute for Healthy Living, Life Science and Research (NIHL), a con-tinuing care senior community in Abacoa. This world-class facility is focused on a continuum of care for our community members. An important issue that could impact the ability for Jupiter Medical Center to continue to meet our communitys health care needs is the recent proposal to build a new hospital four miles from the Jupiter Medical Center campus. While you may have heard that the proposed project is for an academic and research hospital, a closer look at the details tells another story entirely. You deserve the facts about this deal: what the project truly is … and more importantly, what it is not. We believe there is a win-win solution for our community. We have established an informative and interactive website which provides you with actual documents about the proposal from all sides of the issue, as well as information on how the new hos-pital could impact you. I invite you to visit the site at www.winwinforpbc.com. This issue deserves to be viewed under the bright light of accountability because of the potential impact on your health care costs and your health care choices. Since its founding over 30 years ago, Jupiter Medical Center has been a source of compassionate, world-class care … a resource our areas residents can count on.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickAn eye-popping $50 billion is spent on pet care every year, with the lions share going to the dogs, literally. But even though thousands of dog-care supplies are in the market now with thousands more intro-duced all the time, I think there are but a handful that have been game-changers. Here are my top five: Crates Shipping crates for animals have been around forever. But the original Vari Ken-nel line of high-impact plastic crates for-ever altered the way we raise and train our dogs. Most notably, crates are now used routinely for housebreaking „ working with a puppys natural desire to keep the area around him clean to help him learn to hold itŽ until he can be taken outside and praised for going in the right place. Crate training also helps to teach growing puppies which items are OK for chew-ing and which are off-limits, based on whats inside the crate and whats not. A crate also provides a safe place for a dog to ride in a vehicle, teaches him to be more relaxed when confined at the veterinarians and even provides him a safe, secure place to be when evacuated during a disaster.Kong Formed from durable rubber, the Kong is arguably the best dog toy ever invented. Kongs now come in a wide range of sizes and chew strengths. But its the hollow center of most Kongs (the floatable Kool Kongs are the exception) that gives this toy superstar status. Dog trainers recommend keeping crated dogs busy with Kongs stuffed with a vari-ety of fillings, such as kibble, cheese, pea-nut butter and rawhide sticks. Theres no telling how many happy dogs have been distracted from destruction by the mighty Kong.Snap bucklesEarly dog collars were made of metal to protect the necks of war dogs; later ones were made of leather to identify owners and allow for controlling animals with leashes or keeping them from roaming with chains. But fashionable collars werent available for the ordinary dog until the invention of the snap-together clasp. The plastic clasps also help make collars so affordable that many dogs have more than one, and not a few have collars for every occasion.The Chuckit I throw like a girl. But even if I didnt, I know that no one with the possible excep-tion of a major league outfielder could throw a ball far enough to keep my two retrievers happy. Since I like my retrievers to be happy „ not to mention exhausted, so they dont drive me crazy „ I own a Chuckit. Actually, I own three. Maybe four. Simply put: I cant live without them. Seemingly based on the cesta used to fling the pelota in jai alai, the Chuckit gives even the wimpiest dog owner a rocket launcher for an arm. With little effort you can fling to the point of your dogs happy exhaustion without working up a sweat yourself.Head haltersLegendary veterinary behaviorist Dr. R.K. Anderson had a simple idea: Why wouldnt something that has worked with horses for countless years control a dog just as painlessly? Head halters for dogs are simply modified versions of horse hal-ters, and they work on the same principal: Guide and control where the head goes and the rest of the body will follow. How many shoulder joints has the head halter saved? Hard to say, but the ability to take an unruly dog for a walk benefits both pet and owner, helping lessen behavior problems caused by inactivity and health problems caused by excess weight. Next week, Ill have my five cat-care products that have changed the world. Q >>Mango is a 1-year-old neutered Mini Pinscher. He’s not a tiny dog, but does get nervous when he meets new people.

MICHAEL PAPA ChiropractorClinic Director FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 A7 Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have made a discovery regarding a gene that plays an important role in keeping a balance between food intake and energy expenditure. The study may help sci-entists understand the keys to fighting obesity and disorders such as diabetes. The study, published in the Nov. 25 edition of The Journal of Biological Chemistry, focused on the melanocortin-3 receptor, which responds to signals of nutrient intake. What we discovered was quite a surprise,Ž said Scripps Research Associ-ate Professor Andrew Butler, who led the study. We thought that the actions of the receptor expressed in the brain would be critical for metabolic homeo-stasis. However, what we found is that actions of the receptor expressed outside the brain appear to be equally important.Ž The existence of drug targets in areas outside of the central nervous system might help in the effort to develop drugs that influence metabolism with-out major side effects, he said. The findings were made possible by the teams development of a new trans-genic animal model, where expression of the MC3R gene can be selectively switched onŽ in different cell types. The first author of the study, Genetic dissection of melanocortin-3 receptor function suggests roles for central and peripheral receptors in energy homeo-stasis,Ž is Karima Begriche of Scripps Research.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 solar-power a city of 50,000 residents, 19,500 homes and enough commercial space to lay in a Metrodome or two (6 million square feet) is up and run-ning „ again, and seemingly against all odds. Coming, standing, running „ pick your verb. If real estate development were football, Mr. Kitson, who once played for the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys, would be a dazzling broken-field runner. In October his Palm Beach Gardensbased company broke the tackle of a years-long economic downturn by announcing that its debt of more than $100 million to a financier had been satisfied with a payment of roughly half that amount, something few or no other developers facing default with banks or a servicerŽ have been able to do, according to analysts. Now, says Mr. Kitson, the Charlotte County city „ which he bills as the first and most greenŽ of its kind planned anywhere in the world „ could begin to show its bones as early as next summer with a solar field, and by the end of 2012 in ground-breaking construction of commercial space. But the obstacles remain formidable and the ifsŽ prominent. Mr. Kitsons company has not issued a press release in more than two years. He cannot yet say how solar itself will be paid for. He wont name the For-tune 500 companies he says show a strong interest in buying into Babcock. Rebel Cook, a prominent commercial Realtor who heads the Economic Forum of Palm Beach County, takes a cautious wait-and-see approach to Mr. Kitsons outsized plan. Developers are by nature visionaries, but this would be a very ambitious project even if it were started today (post recession). It probably repre-sents more than two decades worth of planning and implementing. Its an ambitious thought alone just to do solar power. Where is the money com-ing from? Historically in a down market, which we are technically in, thats the best time to start planning new inven-tory. But in the state of Florida it takes so long to do a project because of permitting, zoning and environmental issues that a plan (can be defeated).Ž Ms. Cook puts the scope of the Babcock plan in perspective this way: Even if you bought 5 acres of land today and wanted to build on it „ just 5 acres „ it could take you several years.Ž In addition, Mr. Kitson isnt talking specifically about how the massive infrastructure will be put in place or who will pay for it „ for example, roads that connect the site to the cultural and commercial core of Lee County, the closest to Babcock. Both state and county asphalt will have to support huge numbers of workers who drive in and out of Babcock, before supporting tensor hundreds-of-thousands of daily road trips that planners say will likely be made by someday residents on the same roads. There will be offsite work that needs to be done,Ž Mr. Kitson acknowledges. That will happen as the community continues to grow and the need for improvements become necessary. I get asked, It seems like you dont want to do offsite improvements. Do you? And the answer is, I dont. We want to provide people with what they need here (to live, work and play). People will leave Babcock, but wed like to minimize that.ŽPros and cons the size of an offensive linemanIn that problem „ the problem of 50,000 someday residents who will impact everything in the region „ lies both the glory of the Babcock development project or the horror of it, depending in part on where a supporter or critic is standing geo-graphically. In Charlotte County, whose coffers might be hugely enriched by such a project, officials have widely embraced it. Commissioner Bob Starr, a strong Kitson & Partners supporter, sees only good things for the region if officials and private citizens support Babcock city. When you create a city with a population of 50,000 people, they buy things,Ž he explains. They pay sales taxes, they pay gas taxes „ a lot of gas money goes to other parts of the state, so this will have regional and state benefits. Why Im excited for this region is that were trying to diversify our econ-omy with something other than just building or real estate. And thats what Syds doing. He has allocated places for manufacture, and thats exciting. So I support this 100 percent.Ž Few projects, however, draw more bluntly divergent opinions than Bab-cock. I am 100 percent opposed to this plan,Ž insists Lee County Commis-sioner Frank Mann, who lives in rural east Lee County not far south of the Babcock boundary. This remains a textbook case of urban sprawl and will be the worst thing in the last 50 years that has happened to the eastern part of Lee, which is of a beautiful character and unspoiled. I was disappointed they were refinanced and had their debt relieved.Ž Much of the anxiety Lee officials express has to do with money, not to mention disturbance. The roadways, sewer, underground utilities and all the construction hes talking about will involve thousands of vehicles daily, especially on State Road 31, the main artery from Babcock to the closest everything: stores, churches, work, all of it,Ž Commissioner Mann warns. Kitson will pay impact fees „ to Charlotte. Charlotte County will get the impact fees „ a house is about $12,000. And Lee will get the impact. There is nothing now that says Kit-son will have to pay for all of our infrastructure, for the (pressure on) our hospitals, churches, parks, roads, libraries. And if he does pay for the impacts in Lee, hell have to pass on those costs to homebuyers or commer-cial renters up there.Ž That could run up prices in the new city so high buyers in a tepid market could not afford to have homes or business there, he concludes.The money footworkEnding the companys debt problem puts Mr. Kitson in the position to take on these linebacker-sized logistical and even political problems, he says. Were privately held „ its been all over the news that we purchased our debt, so now we own (Babcock) free and clear and have no partners. Its a good position to be in. It gives us the ability to work and think about this long term. You have to think long term. Our partners are committed to doing that.Ž Although his comments about partners seem contradictory „ the Chi-cago financial house known as Ever-green Real Estate Partners has funded several Kitson & Partners projects in Florida to the tune of $750 million, and allowed the company to buy out the 50-percent holdings of the origi-nal Babcock partner, Morgan Stanley, according to reports „ he explains it this way. We bought the note so we own it free and clear. Its Kitson Evergreen, who is us. Evergreen is our quote-unquote partner, but we have a venture „ and they have an entity investment into our company.Ž Now, engineering plans are in the works and nearing completion for roadways in the planned city, as well as buildings. Although Charlotte County officials have provided the permits Mr. Kitson requires to undertake significant work, he needs the approval of the state legislature to do solar power the easy way. And much of what appeals about his futuristic plan relies on solar „ along with electric vehicles and sumptuously maintained green and leisure spaces, as the Kitson & Partners website, www.babcockranch-florida.com, reveals in an elaborate vir-tual tour of Mr. Kitsons vision. Solar would work most easily for Kitson if residents throughout the region would be required by the state legislature to pay an additional 50 cents or as much as a dollar per year, per household, for power. That would cover the cost of a Florida Power & Light installation of a vast network of solar panels „ enough solar to power the entire city from soup to nuts, mak-ing it wholly clean,Ž in the vernacular of proponents. In the past, however, the state House agreed to it but the Senate did not,Ž notes Commissioner Starr. That could change come January, when the new legislative session begins. The frustration has been not having enabling legislation to make that a reality,Ž explains Mr. Kitson. What I need is for utilities „ in this case FP&L „ to be able to go forward. With renewable energy just in general, you need to have cost recovery. Its more expensive. What many people dont realize is that it also is a stabiliz-ing form. Once you build it, theres no volatility in price. Right now, Florida is 70 percent natural gas. But that could be very volatile. The now low price could change overnight.Ž If the legislature does not agree to require FP&L customers to subsidize solar at Babcock, however, Mr. Kitson may move forward with private efforts to get the job done.BABCOCKFrom page 1 COURTESY IMAGESThe Babcock Ranch development is expected to lure 50,000 residents.

Offer expires 12/31/2011. OF PALM BEACH Proudly using BASF products www.basf.com That looks more likely,Ž says Commissioner Starr.A backfield of ironiesThe ironies in the project are significant, ranging from small to large. Commissioner Starr, for example, argued energetically by telephone that roads in the region should be widened and expanded to accom-modate more traffic while personally stuck in traffic in north Lee County. Critics insist road projects will create huge expense and more of the same. As Mr. Kitson argues eloquently for solar power not only at Babcock but across the board in Florida and the U.S., meanwhile, the very natural gas dependency he warns about is being laid down in miles of green pipe along State Road 80 in Lee „ one of the many roads that will have to be widened to accommodate Babcock, according to the developers original plans. Roads such as 31 or 80 that are now two-lane or four-lane might become six-lane, eight-lane or even 10-lane, Lee planners have warned. But inside the 27-square-mile development itself, Mr. Kitson is likely to change the way Sunshine State or American develop-ers do business in the future. We want to be disruptive,Ž Mr. Kitson says, using a word and con-cept traditionally applied to opposing offenses by aggressive defenders on the football field. We want to show how (green and clean) is done.Ž The words are particularly ironic considering where they come from, literally „ not only the owner of roughly a dozen stripor shopping-mall ventures and several others as well „ but a company headquartered in a Palm Beach Gardens setting that epitomizes the design and thinking of Floridas explosive boom and growth that began in the 1990s. Kitsons headquarters takes up the top floor of a SunTrust building at the busy intersection of PGA Boulevard and Military Trail. One might never know a major developer has offices there „ the structure was built in 1991 „ and the interior has some of the glass, chrome and stone feel of that era. Other ten-ants include law offices and invest-ment firms. An elevator drops visitors off in Kitsons lobby, where the companys logo adorns the wall above the recep-tionists desk. Floors are paved with granite. According to the companys website, its Palm Beach County projects include Ibis Golf & Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Plaza del Mar in Manalapan and Riverbridge Centre in Greenacres. There is also a 60-acre development in Pinellas County where more than 1,100 townhomes, condominiums and apartments have been planned, which Kitson & Partners bought for $7.85 million down from a 2006 sell-ing price of more than $38 million last year, according to news reports at the time. If that sounds like business as usual, at the Babcock site Mr. Kitson appears to be aiming at anything but. Already in design and planning hes proven disruptiveŽ of old models, offering a vision of living-working-playing arguably cleaner and more self contained than any other planned community on any continent. Three years ago, I was the point person in the metro resource and environmental review of the Babcock proposal,Ž recalls Bill Byle, an envi-ronmental specialist and biologist who works for Charlotte Countys Community Planning Department. I dont ever want to go on record as saying I love a developer, but Kit-sons an unusually nice guy, and he can make a believer of you.Ž Few doubt, including critics, that a Babcock Ranch City would be clean and green within itself, in other words. How it all works outside remains to be seen, but Mr. Kitsons tenacious-ness and determination speak for themselves. And the market will speak for itself, says Gary Jackson, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute and an assistant professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. A lot of this depends on the time frame „ well be (a long time) recov-ering from the recession,Ž Prof. Jack-son says. From a regional perspective, if Kitsons meeting the demand of people for housing and creating a better living environment than weve seen before „ and thats what the whole review from the project past suggests „ then it might work. Investors are going to be thinking, How successful will this be, will our investments increase over time at Babcock, and when is that going to happen? Its a different kind of place, and maybe theres a niche. But its going to be the market that decides.Ž And the voters may have a say in it too, perhaps, when politicians such as Commissioners Starr or Mann make their cases for or against Babcock. Q (Note: Florida Weekly staff writer Scott Simmons contributed to this report.) Here are Mr. Kitson’s responses to eight questions posed in a conversation with Florida Weekly:1. Are the engineering plans nished? We are smack dab in the middle. We’ve completed engineering on our utility. It’s a big expense so I’m glad we have that done. And we’re completing the engineering for the rst section. 2. Where in the process are you with solar? We’re still enthusiastic. We’re in discussions with a number of Fortune 500 companies who want to help us create the smart city — homes, personal mobility systems. They’re electrically powered, but when it comes from renewable energy, you’ve really done some-thing for the environment and the future. Clean energy will be created here. This is important to us as Americans — we must, this is not a maybe, we must diversify our fuel economy. What we’re hoping is we’ll have the population to put the choice into the public service commission’s hands and allow them to grant ability of utilities to build renewable energy…to allow other forms of energy, to give them a chance. Here’s the thing that’s interesting: Once you build solar — and there are a lot of jobs from building it but not many jobs after — it creates a whole new industry. So the timeline on this is, with approval and with engineering and everything, we could be in the ground with solar by summer (and with commercial ground-breaking) by mid to late next year.3. Is the master site plan on the website still accurate (www.babcockranch orida.com)? Not completely. It’s accurate in the hamlets and downtown — so in general it’s accurate. What’s not accurate is we are now bringing speci city to where roads will be and what buildings will look like.4. Can someone buy or put money down on a home yet? Similarly, can someone now lease a commercial space, or get on a list of rstcomers to do so? No. We have not opened for sales yet; we’re not marketing. We want to have more certainty as to what we’ll be offering. But the larger of ce users, and some of these technology providers and many com-panies we’re talking to, we are in negotiations with them. Those are larger employers. Over time, as we have more speci city to our plan and that engineering is done, we’ll have builders, home selection and pric-ing — then we’ll open it up to consumers. We’re working not only with companies, but on our education program, on schools for kids. We’re work-ing on the environment, energy, education, technol-ogy, transportation, health and wellness, and storm safety. We’ll put that entire package together before we open it up.5. Money: Can your nanciers keep up? How much does Kitson & Partners have invested in this so far, and who is funding it? Three years ago you said in The Palm Beach Post that if Kitson & Partners takes out mortgages on the properties it buys, it'll spend more than $1 billion. Has that happened, what's been spent to date and what role does Ever-green Real Estate Partners play in this? We’re privately held so I can’t give you speci cs about (money). It’s been all over the news that we purchased our debt. We own it free and clear and have no partners. It’s a good position to be in. It gives us the ability to work and think about this long term. You have to think long term. We have put ourselves in a position to do that. Our partners are committed to doing that. But I’m not able to tell you how much. It’s Kitson Evergreen, who is us. Evergreen is our quote-unquote partner, but we have a venture and they have an entity investment into our company.6. Do you consider your timing on this project unfortunate? Our timing — we’re very pleased with our timing. As a developer, location is very important, but timing is just as important as anything. If we’d started this in 2005 or 2006 and put in roadwork and buildings and then hit the recession, we’d be in trouble. But as we start to develop the property in the next 18 months, we’ll be coming into an emerging market. So we hope to be part of that process. We’ve been fortunate we haven’t broken ground.7. Are you a pragmatist or an idealist? This is our opportunity to make a huge difference in the world. Sustainable development — smart cities, smart homes — that has to happen now and into the future. It can be pro table. And we’re going to prove that. We hope people copy what we do. We want to be disrupters in our business — we don’t want things to be done the same way. And it has to resonate with consumers. Apple has been disruptive that way in that industry.8. In the year 2020, what will Babcock look like? We think what we’re going to have is a great place for people to live and work. Which includes a real …I want to nd the right word…we want to incorpo-rate the environment into their lives so people can experience smart homes, smart grid, great personal transportation, but they can enjoy the outdoors that puts this place on a human scale. So in eight or nine years, you’ll see a town in place, businesses, roads, schools, those sorts of things. Q Q&A with Sid Kitson

His legend was earned not merely with his now-famous, dirty-old-man scrapbook of Condoleezza Rice pho-tos. Wrote a BBC reporter, One day (Gadhafi) was a Motown (backup) vocal-ist with wet-look permed hair and tight pants. The next, a white-suited comic-operetta Latin American admiral, dripping with braid.Ž Nonetheless, Gadhafi had competition, according to an October report in the journal Foreign Policy. For example, the son of Equatorial Guinea's dictator owns, among other eccentric lux-uries, a $1.4 million collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia. North Korea's Kim Jong Il owns videos of almost every game Michael Jordan ever played for the Chi-cago Bulls. Q Q In Mar ch, William Ernst, 57, owner of the QC Mart chain of I owa convenience stores, excitedly announced a company-wide employee contest with a prize of $10 for guessing the next worker that Ernst will fire for breaking rules. Once we fire the person, we will open all the envelopes (containing the entries), award the prize, and start the contest again.Ž Ernst added, And no fair picking Mike Miller from (the Rockingham Road store). He was fired at around 11:30 a.m. today for wearing a hat and talking on his cellphone. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!Ž (After firing a cashier who had complained abou t Ernsts attitude, he challenged the womans unemployment-compensation claim, but in October, a judge ruled in her favor.) Q Even in a flagging economy, Christies auction house in New York City was able to attract a record sales price for a photograph. In November, a 1999 photo by German artist Andreas Gursky, of a scenic view of the Rhine River, sold for $4.3 million. (It is possible, of course, that buying the actual waterfront prop-erty that Gursky photographed from „ to enjoy the same view every day „ would have been less expensive.) Q Unfortunately, Manulife Financial Corp. is a Canadian firm, and thus it had a very bad year. If exactly the same company had been magically relocated to anywhere in the United States, it would have had an outstanding year. Under Canadas hard-nosed accounting rules, Manulife was forced to post a loss last year of $1.28 billion. However, under the more feel-good U.S. accounting rules, according to the company, it would have shown a profit of $2.2 billion and been flush with $16 billion more in shareholder value. Q

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 A11 Cutting-edge science Feel good news Our animal overlordsJapans Showa University School of Dentistry has for several years been training practitioners using life-sized synthetic patients from Orient Industry, based on the companys sex dolls,Ž and recently upgraded to the fancier silicon dolls with human-feel skin that can cost as much as the equivalent of $9,000 when sold to perverts who order young women for companionship. According to a July CNN report, robotics added to the Showa version allo w the doll to utter patient phrases, to sneeze, and (when trainees mishandle tools) to gag. Q Q Japans National Police Agency revealed in August that during the five months following the tsunami-provoked nuclear disaster, super-honest searchers had turned in wallets containing the equiv-alent of $48 million and safes containing cash of the equivalent of $30 million. Q In August, the school superintendent of Fresno County, Calif., refused $800,000 in guaranteed salary and said he would run the 325-school system for three years on less pay than a first-year teacher makes. Q Employees at the dump yard in Pompano Beach gave Brian McGuinn zero chance of ever finding the custom-designed ring he had given his wife but had accidentally tossed in his trash at home on Oct. 30. Facing nine tons of 10-foot-high rotten eggs, dirty diapers and other garbage (which made him vomit), he found the ring within 30 minutes. Q Q An Oxf or d University researcher reported in August on the African crested rat, which is so ingenious that it slathers poison, from chewing the A. schimperi plant, onto an absorbent strip of fur on its back as protection against predators many times larger. The researcher observed a dog quivering in fear after just one failed mouthful of a crested rats fur in his labora-tory. The noxious goo is also used by Afri-can tribesmen on their hunting arrows. Q In October, Popular Science dubbed researcher Gaby Maimon of Rockefeller University as one of its Brilliant 10Ž for 2011 for his monitoring of neurons in the brains of fruit flies. Maimon had to immobilize the flies brains in saline and outfit their tiny neurons with even tinier electrodes „ so that he could track which neurons were firing as the flies flapped their wings and carried out other activities (work that he believes can be useful in treating autism and attention-deficit disorder). Q An October Associated Press dispatch from New Orleans warned that Carib-bean crazy antsŽ are invading five Southern states by the millions, and because their death triggers distress signals to their pals for revenge attacks, up to 10 times as many might replace any population wiped out. Said a Texas exterminator, of a pesticide he once tried, In 30 days I had 2 inches of dead ants covering (an) entire half-acre,Ž and still the ants kept coming, crawling across the carcasses. Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi are the most vulnerable. Q

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 I recently received an email from an old friend. He included in his message a link to an obituary of a woman who had just passed away, thinking I might have known her. As it turns out, I did, but it took a deep reach into memory to find her at last among the dusty old shelves of my recollections from 30 years ago. I was living in Kentucky and had started a fledgling womens organization whose mission was to create job opportunities for rural women. This was a pretty bold move at the time and in hostile terri-tory. A big wind was stirring back then and gathering momentum, buoyed by the passion and commitment of many Americans who believed and under-stood the illusion of equality was no substitute for the real thing. In the Deep South, that was not an easy sell. If you have ever toured the great plantations in the states of the old Confederacy, their preservation is as if frozen in time and most are curiously free from the mention and taint of their historical origins in the economics of slavery. We make the pilgrimage anyway. A care-fully honed myth still sings to a part of us, a melody of our own longing for the romance of such indulgencies as the ornate family silver that is ours to hand down to the next generation, or the soaring staircases of the great houses where little girls descend for their first cotillions and are launched with fanfare into society. The era was riddled with social conflicts, the Vietnam War and racial injus-tice. That womens rights should rise to the fore was supported by the ferment of the times. Working women were regard-ed with suspicion and derision and the notion that women were discriminated against was greeted by the attitude of, Well, of course they are!Ž It was rather a novel idea that this was wrong, even though we think now it should have been obvious in the midst of this stub-bornly retro-but-modern society. It was then that I met the woman whose recent demise stirred up these memories. I was running a womens advocacy organization riding on the national wave of discontent about the inequities women faced in the work-force. The National Organization of Women was founded in 1966 and had become a potent public voice. I submit-ted one of my first proposals seeking a grant from the Windom Fund and was successful. The woman who approved that grant was the subject of the obitu-ary. Until now, I knew little of the jour-ney that came before our meeting, or where it went subsequently, after and up until the time of her death. It turns out she did not only give money away. She was herself an expert grant-writer. During the 60s, she got her start raising funds to support what she described to the New York Times as important initiatives in building the profile of women as change makers and leaders.Ž Then she went on in the 70s to become the Director of the Nation-al Womens Political Caucus advocacy group. In 1980, she helped found the Windom Fund, which supported vot-ing rights and womens empowerment. This is where we first met. After being there for eight years, she helped found EMILYs List „ EMILYŽ stands for early money is like yeast,Ž which makes doughŽ rise. EMILYS List has achieved national recognition for its support of building a donors network in support of progressive women candidates run-ning as Democrats for public office. This took grit, which stimulated more of the same among women. We still dont have a womens equal rights amend-ment to the U.S Constitution because of an equally determined lady who didnt buy the equity-for-women argument. When you start out in the non-profit world or in service to a cause, we seldom see or experience our progress toward a destination as having been the product of a careful plan. The serendipity of the journey is held constant by the depth of our desire to change the world. A life well lived in service to others is a testament to how the courage of this resolve is both an adventure and opportunity. It is a gift to be committed and also be charitable because the end-ing that is written in recognition of a lifetime is just the beginning of the story for so many others. 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. Lorraine could tell by the look on Harveys face that the meeting did not go well. Oh, she knew that look, and it usually spelled trouble. When Lorraine asked what was wrong, Harvey started to curse his sister Roberta (not their real names). Harvey and his siblings had waited several weeks after their mothers funeral to go through Moms belongings. Now, Harvey was accusing Roberta of taking the most valuable items before the others had arrived. Lor-raine had always been very close to her sister-in-law. She had a hard time believ-ing Roberta would do such a thing. This was not Harveys first run-in with Roberta but it sounded like the most contentious to date. Harvey was so irate he insisted that Lorraine stop speaking to his sister. He stated that Roberta would not be welcome in their home for Christmas, even though Lor-raine had already invited her. Over the years, Harvey had had many falling outs with friends and relatives, each time insisting Lorraine sever her ties with the offender.Ž If truth be told, in most instances, Lorraine actually thought the other party was in the right. However, she had learned to keep these thoughts to her-self because Harvey would become incensed if she didnt take his side, accusing her of being dis-loyal. Although Lorraine had become increasingly resentful, shed always acquiesced, because it was so stressful to rock the boat. But she was unwilling to go along with him this time. Couples often have an understanding, spoken or implied, that they will loyally support one another. We count on our partners to speak highly of us and to be careful of our feelings. Unfortunately, though, there are times when a line is crossed and the expectations do not feel comfortable or fair. We may feel that our partners are asking us to compro-mise our core values and to behave in a way that does not seem authentic. If we go along with our loved ones demands and the steps are contrary to how we feel, it is likely we will carry a slew of negative feelings „ especially anxiety or resentment. We may be inclined to indirectly voice our upset by withdrawing or becoming hos-tile or sarcastic. Over time, hard feelings and distance will build. Finding a way to more directly voice our disagreements will be the challenge. Up until now, Lorraine and Harvey may have had a tacit understanding that it would be too unsettling for their rela-tionship if Lorraine were to voice any objections. Lorraine has to consider whether this issue with Roberta is important enough to challenge the status quo. It would probably be helpful for Lorraine to recognize that Harveys con-trolling behavior might actually be a sign that he cares deeply about her, but he fears her outspokenness places the marital stability at risk. His level of insecurity may be so strong that he takes a hard line position by demanding, sulking or yelling when he is hurt or overwhelmed. Lorraine may sense his brewing upset, and be too intimidated to rock the boat. Not every relationship can tolerate one person speaking up in an assertive way. If Lorraine were to say to her husband, I know how upset you are with Roberta, but Im not comfortable cutting ties with her,Ž their marriage will face a critical confrontation. Harvey will be put in the position of responding to her firm stance. Changing the way things have always been in a relationship takes a will-ingness to weather the anxiety and to address the impact on each other. Oftentimes, one person is motivated to address the change, while the other may be too uneasy or unwilling to face the discomfort. If you are introducing a subject that is potentially threatening to your relation-ship, it makes sense to wait for a time when there wont be distractions, and things have calmed down. Reminding your partner how important he is to you, and how committed you are to staying close, reiterates your intention to have a positive resolution. Clearly stating what is important to you, without being critical or blam-ing your partner, should make a huge difference. This might be the time for Lorraine to reassure Harvey that being able to take a different point of view actually allows her to feel closer to him and more valued in their marriage. At the end of the day, its not for us to tell Lorraine how she should address this concern with Harvey. Only the two of them know what the repercussions might be. Carving a new direction with each other involves a will-ingness on both their parts to get to know each other in a different, more mature way.

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

Each year brings new financial innovations, phenomena, disasters, etc. Along with these changes come new words, acronyms and phrases to describe them. This new vocabulary is often the brainchild of bankers „ innovative underwriters, analysts and traders „ whose agile minds create all sorts of financially engineered products (some quite infamous). In their spare moments, they devise new financial expressions. LDL (no, not LOL) became an acronym widely used by banks when a sub-ject of an e-mail required full disclosure that bankers did not want to have record-ed in an e-mail/paper trail, a sender might write, LDL,Ž meaning Lets dis-cuss live.Ž The New York Times, May 29, 2001 column, The Trouble with E-Mail,Ž described how LDLs, surfaced during the SECs investigation of Gold-man Sachsƒ a trader named Fabrice Tourre described a mortgage investment in e-mail as a way to distribute junk that nobody was dumb enough to take first time around.Ž The Goldman recipient of the e-mail, Jonathan Egol, e-mailed back: LDL.Ž How much more interesting the Goldman investigation might have been had no LDLs been employed. OPM Banks, or Other Peoples Money Banks, became a more common expression in 2011. It refers to the many busi-ness practices of the too-big…to-fail-banks including their proprietary trad-ing: leveraging to the hilt and, if profit-able, the spoils going to the bankers and, if unprofitable, the losses going to the shareholders, FDIC and taxpayers via bailouts. While this acronym fits todays banks, the expression probably finds its history with a book published in the very early 1900s but which has been recently re-released as it quite eerily describes financial machinations of the early 1900s that still afflict our banks today. Other Peoples Money and How the Bankers Use ItŽ was written by Louis Brandeis before he became a Supreme Court Justice in 1916. Suffice to say, OPM might get morphed to OCM as the coun-tries and governments loaded with debt (i.e. those in Europe) will be looking to Other Countries Money for a bailout. In 2011, CDOs (Collateralized Debt Obligations) which played a leading role in the 2008 crisis were tweaked and CDOs squared were created, i.e. a CDO further collateralized by another CDO. Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, became offi-cially known as The Bernank.Ž Some use the expression to refer to the policy of quantitative easing which The Ber-nankŽ popularized. Do another Ber-nankŽ means to do more quantitative easing. Rogue traderŽ is a feared label on Wall Street as the actions of such an individual trader can and have brought the end to several large investment firms. It simply means an authorized trader undertaking unauthorized trades, usually of great size and failed in their outc ome. Rogue traders often go to jail. (As opposed to the rogue traders whose bets pay handsomely, get crowned brilliant and get promoted.) The name resurfaced this year when UBS announced that 31-year-old Kweku Adoboli had caused a $2 billion loss at UBS. Not at all related to rogue trading but very much related to rogue sovereign lending is the phrase too big not to fail,Ž a revision of the expression given to U.S. banks in 2008-2009 when they were deemed too big to fail.Ž But, in Europe, the size of the banking problem is considered horrifically larger (trillions larger than the U.S. debacle.) The too-big-to-not-fail institutions include a lot of French banks, which hold very large amounts of sovereign debt of several countries that are or were teetering on failure. The first four known to have insolvable debt issues were called the PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain). The acronym was changed to PIIGSŽ to include Ireland. Around the corner from those countries are Belgium and France; there is uncertainty whether the swine acronym can be morphed yet again to accommodate the additional names. Not all acronyms are found to be socially acceptable. PIGS No Longer FlyŽ was the title of a column by Bloomberg in 2011 telling the story of how Barclays Bank (an international bank headquar-tered in London) had issued a memo that banned further use of the swine acronym.Ž BRIC, an oft-used reference to the upcoming developing countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China, denotes nothing derogatory and has not been banned. So useful were these acronyms to describe groups of countries that a third was created: MIST, signifying Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey, countries of significance but in a cat-egory behind BRIC. The expression which came from nowhere but is now constantly used in the newspapers and on the cable news is: risk onŽ and  risk off,Ž referring to major moves in the financial markets into risk assets and moves out of risk assets. For instance, if there is good news out of Europe, thenƒ risk is on; but risk is off when there is bad news out of Europe,ƒor the U.S., the Middle East, China, etc. Given that seasonŽ is here in Florida, understanding these expressions might be useful for hobnobbing in cocktail chatter.

WPBF 25 was the only station to post ratings growth over November 2010 in the key week-day news time periods of 5 a.m.-7 a.m. (up 43 percent), 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. (up 46 percent) and 11 p.m.-11:30 p.m. (up 10 percent), the station reported in a news release. At 6 a.m., WPBF 25 News MorningsŽ delivered a 2.5 household rating, a 47 percent improvement over last year. This ratings delivery was the highest ever delivered by WPBF in the time period during a ratings period since Nielsen metered the market in 1994. At 4 p.m., Dr. OzŽ delivered a 4.4 household rating, a 120 percent ratings increase over last year and the best rating in the time period for WPBF 25 since July 1999. WPBF 25 experienced ratings growth during its 5 p.m.6:30 p.m. newscasts and each delivered their highest ratings since February 2010. Among individual half-hours, WPBF 25 news at 5 p.m. led in growth, up 95 percent over last years household rating. The entire WPBF 25 staff has been working extraordinarily hard to grow the television station across all day-parts, said WPBF 25 President and General Manager Caro-line Taplett, in the statement. Its gratifying to know and we are extremely thankful that the community is recogniz-ing our efforts and really likes the product we provide. Although we are a solid number two station in the market, we recognize we still have more work to do to reach our goal of becoming the number one television station in West Palm Beach-Fort Pierce DMA.Ž In addition to its strong performance at 6 a.m., WPBF 25 News Mornings at 5 a.m. excelled with 45 percent ratings growth over last year. Q WPBF posts year-over-year newscasts ratings growthThe only winners so far in the effort to allow luxury resort casinos in South Florida, which has widespread implications for every form of gam-bling in the state, are lobbyists. Gambling groups from across the nation have spent millions on outside lobbyists since July in preparation for a legislative session that will be dominated by the debate over destinationŽ resort casinos and their impact on everything from Inter-net cafes, pari-mutuel race tracks, video gaming vendors and the Seminole Tribes casinos. Gambling businesses and anti-gambling groups have spent up to $2.6 million on lobbyists in the third quarter of this year, according to recently released lobbying financial disclosure forms. The big spenders this quarter were casino developers like Genting Americas, which spent up to $430,000 on lobbyists in the quarter ending Sept. 30 in preparation for a fight to get legislative approval to build a large resort casino in Miami that it is calling Resorts World Miami. Genting spent far more than competitor Las Vegas Sands, which spent up to $165,996 spent on lobbyists during the same quarter. In total, casino operators interested in coming to South Florida have spent up to $715,979 on lobbyists in the third quarter alone, making their total for the year $1.7 million. Jessica Hoppe, the general counsel and vice president of governmental affairs for Genting, defended the lobbyist spending as a necessary means to an end, saying destination resorts have the potential to create 100,000 jobs. Its important that message is heard throughout the Capitol and the state,Ž Ms. Hoppe said in an email, noting that we put together a great team.Ž Casino operators that want to expand in South Florida that are spend-ing big arent the only big spenders. Groups such as International Internet Technologies, which makes the software used in video gaming machines, spent up to $410,000 on lobbyists in the third quarter. The company is one of many that appear wary of several bills that attempt to crack down on Internet cafes that offer sweepstakes games and fall under an unregulated grey area in the law. Dog and horse race tracks throughout the state are also spending big in anticipation that a pro-posal on destination resorts could yield a better tax rate for them and increase the value of a pari-mutuel license. Racetracks across the state have spent up to $599,973 on lobbyists in the third quarter, while groups representing horse and dog breeders, ken-nel clubs, and jai alai players spent up to $320,000 on lobbyists during the third quarter. Whether any of this spending translates into results remains to be seen. After up to $4.6 million was spent on gambling lobbying in the first six months of the year, an attempt to pass a destination resorts bill fell apart. This was seen as a victory for some lobbying groups „ such as the pari-mutuels and Seminole tribe „ but not others. Q Lobbyists are big winnersin S.

A Chinese porcelain chestnut basketŽ recently was offered for sale at a Virginia auc-tion. We looked at the basket, which appears to be a bowl and underplate, and wondered if the reticulated (cut-out) areas were sim-ply decorative or if they were important because the bowl held chestnuts. The chest-nuts served in the Chinese porcelain basket must have been roasted and peeled, then eaten like any nut. The slotted bowl allowed the escape of steam from the hot chestnuts. Chestnuts have been eaten since prehistoric times. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Americans used ground chestnuts as bread flour and a substitute for potatoes. Today, chestnuts become particularly popular in the winter, when they are added to turkey stuff-ing or simply roasted, shelled and eaten. But they also can be used to make salads, meatŽ loaf and hummus, and they can be mixed with maple syrup to create a French dish called marron glace.Ž Chestnuts are now available at grocery stores or online with or without their hard outer shells. Modern bowls specially made to serve hot chestnuts dont seem to be available. When you search online, you find lots of bowls made from the wood of chestnut trees. Some trees in America were introduced by Europeans, but there are also native variet-ies, including the American chestnut. Unfor-tunately, an Asian chestnut tree planted in New York in 1904 spread a fungus that killed most of the American chestnuts. Today, gardeners plant decorative Chinese chestnut trees that have pink, not white, flowers and little fruit. Most chestnuts that are cooked today are imported from Japan, China, Spain and Italy. Q: Years ago, we rescued a wreck of a Victorian sofa from an old barn down the KOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTINGPrized chestnuts had their own special bowls terry KOVEL news@floridaweekly.com O This unusual porcelain basket, 5 by 9 by 8 inches, was made in the 18th century to serve hot chestnuts. Ken Farmer Auctions of Radford, Va., estimates that it will sell for about $1,000.

The frame appears to be oak, and the scrolled arms on each side recline. We had the wood refinished and the sofa reupholstered. A: The Victorians of the late 19th century loved to design multipurpose furniture. One or both of the arms on your sofa could be lowered to make a chaise lounge or a day-bed. Q: Our family has owned a small clear glass dog figurine for decades. My dad picked it up when he came upon a truck wreck in West Virginia. Boxes and boxes of these dogs had fallen out of the truck, and nearly all of the figures were broken. The dog is 3 inches high by 1 7/8 inches wide and 2 5/8 inches deep. The figure is hollow and the bottom is open. The dog is in a sitting position with his ears down. Any idea what it was used for, and what its worth today? A: Your glass dog originally was a candy container. It was sold in the mid-1950s filled with candy sealed inside by a paper bottom glued to the bases rim. The original paper closures were printed in blue with the words: Poochie, contains pure and wholesome candy. Remove paper and Poochie becomes a good paperweight or a cute what-not ... American Creations, Inc., New York, N.Y.Ž Others were made in pink or green glass, some with color flashing. The identical glass dog, but painted brown and filled with bath salts, was sold by a New York cosmetics firm. Without the sealed bottom, however, your doggie would sell for only about $5. Q: Browsing at a garage sale, I recently bought an old fire extinguisher to use as a doorstop. Im told its an antique. Its cop-per with a rubber hose. It says, Pacific Fire Extinguisher Co., San Francisco-Los AngelesŽ and Pacific Badger Soda-Acid Fire Extinguisher.Ž It has a copper placard with directions on charging and maintenance and a certification number from the Underwrit-ers Laboratories. A: Various solutions have been used in fire extinguishers since the early 18th cen-tury. The earliest fire extinguishers, patented in 1723, contained a liquid that was shot out of the container by exploding gunpowder. The first soda-acid fire extinguisher was pat-ented by Francois Carlier in France in 1866. In 1881 Almon Granger patented a soda-acid extinguisher in the United States. Soda-acid fire extinguishers were still being used in the 1940s. The company that made your fire extinguisher was still working in 1953 but by then it was making a more modern product. Old fire extinguishers can be dangerous. The chemicals inside can corrode the metal and the chemicals can leak out. You should be sure your old fire extinguisher is empty and not damaged or leaking. It if is, take it to your local fire department for inspection so it can be labeled a hazard and disposed of properly. Old and empty fire extinguishers usually sell for about $100. Q: My mother still has the old GE Heat n Serve Baby DishŽ in its original box. She used it to heat up my baby food back in the mid-1970s. Whats it worth today? A: General Electric introduced its plastic three-part Heat n Serve Baby Dish in the 1960s and continued to market it into the late 1970s. It can be found with different decal decorations and different box designs. We have seen dishes in original boxes sell for $15 to $25. Tip: Commercial false-teeth cleaners are good to use to remove scum from the inside of old glass bottles. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

THE SECRET IS OUT!GET SOLAR POWER FOR AS LITTLE AS THE COST OF A HAMBURGER A DAY AND SAVE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OFF YOUR ENERGY COSTS. 3583 Northlake Blvd. North Palm Beach 1/4 mile East of I-95 START SAVING MONEY TODAY! 1-888-9SUPER G www. SuperGreen Solutions.com SuperGreen Solutions your one-stop energy efficient products shop. Visit our state of the art showroom to see these products in action and learn how they can pay for themselves by reducing your energy bill. SOLAR VENTILATION SKYLIGHTS SEE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS WITH OUR EASY-TO-INSTALL INSULATION & LIGHTING PRODUCTS GREAT FOR HOME OWNERS AND RENTERS! THERMAL INSULATION SOLAR & TANKLESS WATER HEATING No kidding, for the price of a hamburger, you could invest in a Solar package that can save and generate enough power to offset your utility bill and save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the system. Lets face it the Sun is free and a few smart people are tapping into free power, free money and tax credits, to help pay for their solar power sys-tems! Learn how you too can do the same below. Simply put, these Energy and Dollar saving facts speak for them-selves:1. The Price of Solar power systems has fallen over the past ten years, making them more affordable. (Photo Voltaic Solar panels now cost around half of what they did ten years ago). 2. Advancements in technology and Competition between manufac-tures have seen solar power systems become more ef“cient at generating more power from a smaller footprint, at less cost. 3. At the same time, the cost of energy derived from fossil fuels or nuclear power plants, via our utility companies has continued to rise. (In most states the price of energy has doubled over the past ten years and many observers predict this trend to accelerate as our earths resources deplete. Pushing the price per kilo-watt to double every seven to eight years.) 4. FPL offers lucrative Rebate programs for people who install Solar Power systems to their homes, (as much as $2.00 a watt). This trans-lates to $10,000.00 in hard cash for an average 5KW, residential Solar power system. Combine this Juicy incentive with a $1000.00 rebate for installing a Solar Hot water system. Totalling $11,000.00 in FREE MONEY. A com-pelling enticement for those smart few who go for Solar and apply for these FPL rebates.) 5. The Federal Government offers a 30% Tax credit, against the fully supplied and installed cost of Solar power systems and Solar Hot water system. 6. Fierce competition for your business, between companies has seen great offers being made. E.g. a $1000.00 Cash back incentive for purchasing two or more energy sav-ing products, such as a Solar Power and Solar Hot water or Hybrid Heat pump water heaters, is being offered by one local energy ef“cient prod-ucts company. The combination of the above rebates and incentives on offer can effectively account for between 50%… 60% off of the cost of purchas-ing solar products. Half Price Solar, makes the argument for going green, not only make more sense but dol-lars and centsŽ as well! (Who would have thought you could get a solar power system for less than half price. Not a bad deal at all if you ask me?) The argument becomes more attractive and compelling if one fac-tors the use of smart “nancing op-tions into the equation. As prudently using a Low Interest loan to “nance the balance of the system over 4 to 5 years will not only take the edge off, the initial outlay cost. But the major-ity of the repayment amount can be made by the savings that you would make off of your energy Bill. In other words … you can use the money that you would normally pay to the Util-ity Company for your power, to pay the “nance company. Then once the system is paid off, you will continue to reap the bene“ts of your FREE power from the sun for the life of the system. (Reputable Solar power sys-tems have a 25 year warrantee.) Why not join the thousands of other happy solar power users and laugh all the way to bank as well?! As continually having to pay for dirty power for the next 25 Years as power costs continue to rise makes no sense or Cents at all. Especially when power from the sun, is free. We are in Florida the Sunny state, right? You have now seen how a Smart few have taken advantage of the Suns free Rays, FPL rebates, Tax credits, discount offers and smart Financing options to get their Solar power, ini-tially for the cost of a Hamburger a day. But the real bene“t is ƒƒ once its paid for, your power is Free ƒ. from then on! ƒ.. Free hamburgers or free power … its your call ? By Sean Cochrane … SuperGreen Solutions. BY SEANCOCHRANE

SEE MALTZ, B7 XBY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.com IN LIVING TECHNICOLOR It is one of the biggest film festivals in Florida, and it is returning this month for its 22nd season. From Dec. 7-18, the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival will screen 35 films from seven countries at six ven-ues across the county. Through that, the festival will tell the stories of a people. For its opening night, the festival will show the Florida premiere of Music of Remembrance: The Boys of Terezin.Ž Its a documentary about a woman who commissioned the writings of a bunch of young boys in the Terezin camps,Ž says Larry Ferber, the festivals new director. They put their stories into the form of an oratorio.Ž Those stories and poems were published in an underground magazine. At one point in the film, you discover that five of the six men who wrote this underground newspaper are still living, and one of the men lives in West Palm Beach,Ž says Mr. Ferber. That man, Sidney Taussig, will appear at the festivals opening night. And guests that evening can hear music from the oratorio, with performances by The Young Singers of the Greater Palm Beaches. Mr. Ferber says he is excited about the opening night. Its the first time were doing a big opening at the Kravis Center. Were not only having a big opening for our big donors. Itll be at the Cohen Pavilion and there will be 500 people,Ž he says. Mr. Ferber took over as director of the festival early this year, but this is not his first experience with film events. I did Jewish film festivals in Norfolk, Va., for several years,Ž he says. Mr. Ferber also worked as a television producer. Its the same thing „ moving things around, and viewing films with a com-mittee and getting input from the com-mittee,Ž he says. I came here to retire and lasted about five months, once the contractor finished my condo,Ž he says.Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival returns for 22nd season BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.com SEE FESTIVAL, B6 X COURTESY PHOTO John Pinto Jr. and Jodie Langel

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 I recently spent a week on a small island off Seattle. This was just before Thanksgiving, early winter in other parts of the world even if its still air conditioning season in our cor-ner of paradise. For my trip to the Northwest I had to dig old sweaters out of my closet. I found a coat stuffed in the back with a pair of gloves in the pocket. A ratty scarf materialized. I managed to cobble together a wardrobe that made me look like a home-less woman. But at least Id be warm. Or so I thought.It turns out the Seattle area is colder than I realized, and I was quickly reminded of all the degradations of below-freezing temperatures: the runny nose, the red cheeks, the stiff fingers. I spent my week in a cabin heated by a space heater and a wood stove „ that is to say, barely heated at all. At night I slept fully dressed, with a ski cap pulled down over my ears and a hot water bottle clutched to my chest. In the mornings I smelled like rubber. The purpose of the week was to spend time alone. To commune with the self. To free my life of distractions so I could focus on my work. I spent a lot of time thinking about sex. What can I say? There wasnt much else to do. But, more specifically, I thought about sex in the North. I tried to fig-ure out the mechanics of it, how two people can get together in a place so cold I couldnt imagine taking off my gloves, let alone my shirt. Or, God forbid, my pants. The ski cap would definitely have to stay on. I once read a novel set in pre-war Japan where a Japanese man fell in love with a young American woman. When the two finally consummated their relationship, he was startled to see that she approached the act com-pletely nude. In Japan, the narrator reflected, people made love in a state of undress. They carefully opened cer-tain garments and purposefully closed others so that the moment unfolded in a series of delicately revealed skin. I thought this might be how people handled it in the Northwest: a consciously orchestrated act that involved the unzipping of par-kas and moving aside of fleece. I imagined the whole process happened quickly and never in the nude. That it was a chilly, infrequent affair. But when I suggested the idea to friends at dinner during my stay, they laughed. We have sex all the time,Ž one woman said. Thats all we ever do. Its too cold for any-thing else.Ž We take a lot of hot baths,Ž another said. In fact, you guys are the ones we dont under-stand.Ž I looked up from my plate, surprised. How does anyone do it in all that hot weather?Ž she asked. The woman next to her leaned in. When Im on vaca-tion in Florida, I wont even let my husband touch me. Its too hot.Ž I laughed and shook my head. This is what people refer to when they talk about the ingenuity of the human species. We are amazingly adaptable creatures.

SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY West Palm Beachs only resident professional theater, Palm Beach Dramaworks, is extending its produc-tion of Arthur Millers play All My Sons,Ž with an additional week of performances, due to overwhelming popular demand. The extra show times at the new Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., will play through Dec. 18. Call the box office at 514-4042 for information regarding the addi-tional week of perfor-mances. All My SonsŽ was Millers first commercial success and is considered his breakthroughŽ play. Set in the back yard of the Keller home in 1947, this play about the cost of lying and the price of truth telling examines a family and a father who placed duty to his family above the lives of others. Dramaworks Resident Director J. Barry Lewis directs the production fea-turing Kenneth Tigar, Beth Dimon, Jim Bal-lard, Kersti Bryan, Cliff Burgess, Nanique Gheridian, Kenneth Kay, Dave Hyland, Margery L owe, Ka den Cohen and Leandre Thivierge. The play features scenery designed by Michael Amico, cos-tumes designed by Brian OKeefe, lights designed by John Hall and sound designed by Richard Szczublewski. Individual tickets are $55 for all performances. Student tickets are available for $10. Group rates for 20 or more, and discounted season subscriptions are also available. Q FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 B3 PUZZLE ANSWERS You might wonder how declarer lost a trump trick in this deal and went down one in five hearts. But the fact is that it did happen, and it all came about in a perfectly natural way. The hand was played in New Orleans in the 1978 World Open Pairs. North, Ahmed Hussein, partnered by Omar Sharif and representing Egypt, opened the bidding with one club. East, Leon Tintner, partnered by Nadine Cohen and representing France, overcalled with two spades, indicating a strong six-card suit in a hand of less than opening strength. Sharif now boldly bid three hearts despite his five high-card points and dreadful heart suit. Obviously, he could not bring himself to pass, but this action ultimately came back to haunt him. West jumped to four spades, and North, not knowing whether his side could make five hearts or whether the opponents could make four spades, decided to cater to both possibilities by bidding five hearts. That closed the bid-ding, and Cohen led the K-A of clubs. Then, knowing a spade shift could serve no purpose since South had to be void in the suit, Cohen continued with a low club. This was the straw that broke the camels back. Tintner ruffed dummys nine of clubs with the jack of hearts, and Sharif was down one before he could even get started. Declarer had no trouble taking the rest of the tricks. He ruffed the spade return, cashed the A-K of trumps and A-K of diamonds, then ruffed a diamond in dummy, establishing the rest of the suit. However, this was little consolation for someone who had lost a trump trick with a combined total of nine trumps headed by the A-K-Q and the trumps divided 2-2 in the opponents hands.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 Coming to the Palm Beach festival means an opportunity for change. That opening night at the Kravis Center is one thing that sets this season apart from others. The other things that are different this year? Traditionally, they always have a community member introduce the film,Ž he says. This year, prob-ably 90 percent of the films are being introduced by local rabbis, cantors or experts. It brings a little heft.Ž To introduce The Kissinger Saga,Ž the host will be Howard Reed, an Academy of Continuing Educa-tion instructor from the JCC who met Henry Kissinger. A film to which Mr. Ferber is looking forward is Mahler on the Couch.Ž Some committee members said it didnt have that much Jewish content,Ž Mr. Ferber says. But his music was loaded with yiddishkeit.Ž It explores the angst of composer Gustav Mahler. On the Couch refers to the fact that Alma (Mahlers wife) was much younger and she was having an affair with (Walter) Gropius, who invented Bauhaus,Ž Mr. Ferber says. Couch refers to the fact that he saw Freud. Its a double whammy with music.Ž Screenings will be in theaters from Palm Beach Gardens to Delray Beach. And those half-dozen venues point up the diversity of Palm Beach County. Its very different,Ž he says. The other thing is that you learn, even between Delray and the north, certain films they like in Delray they dont like in the north and vice-versa.Ž But its that exploring that makes his job exciting. This is the kind of thing that I really like to do,Ž he says. And Ive had the opportunity in less than a year to meet 250-300 people, between screening meetings, board meetings and volun-teers. Its quite a lot of juggling but I like juggling. Im a masochist.Ž All of which points to a favorite festival date: Dec. 18, when I can go back to sleep.Ž Q FESTIVALFrom page 1 ScreeningsDec. 7Opening Night: A Night to Remember“Music of Remembrance: The Boys of Terezin” (USA, English) 7 p.m. Dec. 7, the Kravis Center.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.comWEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 MALTZFrom page 1Lest you think it is a production of Cecil B. DeMille proportions, there will not be 240 kids on the stage all at once. Those children, selected during this years First Step to Stardom auditions, will be divided into eight casts of 30. Bringing it all together is director Mark Martino, who most recent-ly directed La Cage aux FollesŽ and Crazy for YouŽ at the Maltz. This is his fifth show there. Happily enough, Andrew (Kato) has asked me back again. Weve a great time with all of them,Ž he says. This is the second year Mr. Kato, the theaters artistic director, has used audi-tions to engage the community in Maltz productions „ in the 2010/2011 season, the open call provided cast members for the musicals AcademyŽ and The Sound of Music.Ž Hes kind of offered me the big heartfelt shows and I feel really comfortable and happy that he does because its what I love to do,Ž Mr. Martino says. I love the honest sentiment of these big musicals and that you do some-thing with beautiful production values and terrific singing and terrific dancing because we get the very best people here and the produc-tion values are very high, and so you can do a beautiful, beautiful production so you can locate the very heart of it.Ž Lloyd Webber drew from the biblical tale of Joseph, whose brothers, jealous of the attention he received from his father, tossed him in a pit to die, then sold him into slavery in Egypt. Joseph went on to become high and mighty in the court of Pharoah and was reunited with his father and brothers. Its a tuneful tale of forgiveness.Its a very simple story told in a very simple way. But like all simple stories it has a great deal of profundity, its very profound and its something that when you see it through a childs eyes, which is the reason to cast it with all those kids, it becomes even more moving,Ž Mr. Martino says. Its something that resonates with the director. What draws me to this show is the story about family. Im Italian with a big Italian family and I like to say Im a crier. I cry easily,Ž he says. And I think its because Im Italian Im one of many siblings „ Im the oldest of six. And this story resonates for me as a story of a ƒIts the story of a family that fractures and at the end of the tale, forgives, and the redemption creates the joy and delight that comes from embrac-ing everybodys flaws in your family and knowing that ultimately its the most important thing you have is those people who love you from the time you were born.Ž But what about the glitz of a big Andrew Lloyd Webber musical? I think that people sometimes think Joseph is just a spectacle, but its not. It will be a spectacular production because thats part and parcel of what the show asks for, which is a lot of color and light and whimsy and all that kind of stuff,Ž Mr. Martino says. But under-neath it beats a very solid heart, which is about a doting father, a nave son, his jealous brothers. Over the course of the show, that nave child of 18 becomes a king who is able to forgive his brothers for throwing him in a pit and leaving him to die.Ž And who better to play that nave child than someone new to the role, and to Andrew Lloyd Webber? Theres so much to play with in the show and especially with my character I sort of go through that journey of hap-py-go-lucky and then gets very serious. And then Im more grounded and Im older at the end of the show, so theres a big journey that I go through that Im going to enjoy,Ž says John Pinto Jr., who plays Joseph and gets to wear that title Dreamcoat of many colors. It always was a dream of Mr. Pintos to perform in musical theater. That started in high school, as far as musicals go, but growing up I was always reciting Disney movies. People could just push play and I would go. It was always a passion to entertain people,Ž he says. Jodie Langel, who plays the narrator, knows her role well. Ive done the show, I think this is my fourth time,Ž she says. My first time, I was 26 years old. ƒ I was in college and I barely had five cents to my name, but I took all my money and I took my dad, and I said I want to see Joseph and the (Amazing) Technicolor Dreamcoat. And I had the top seat in the balcony and you could barely see anything. And I was so proud of myself. I scrambled up all my money and I took my dad and we sat in the top, top, top, top and kept climbing up higher and higher, and my dad looked at me and said, This is where youre taking us? We sat there and I just remember the music playing and I looked down at the narrator singing and looked at my dad, and said, Im going to play that role.Ž That ambition was rewarded.A few years later, I stood in a small, small rehearsal space and I sang for Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and I got the role of the narrator and it was a dream come true.Ž Local audiences may remember her portrayal a few years ago of Evita. But in her role as narrator, she portrays a teacher. Im not in the wild, crazy colors,Ž she says with a laugh. Im kind of a khaki schoolteacher.Ž Thats a role that is not too far removed from real life „ she recently moved to the Palm Beaches to head of the theater arts division at Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach. Her husband, Kim Steiner, is the shows music director. John and I are really the ones who talk to the kids, and theyre involved and theyre not involved, and in the second act, I sing to them,Ž she says. And what was so great, was that during rehearsal, and I was opening the book and singing to them, and I completely lost my words „ Ive sung this song a million times „ because they were looking at me, and Im looking at their little innocent faces and they actually were listening to me.Ž She was amazed at how that affected her. Thats so truthful. And thats what the show is. Its truth and its this genu-ine truth and spirit and joy and happi-ness, and thats whats the magic of the show,Ž Ms. Langel says.

Emotions run high with antici-pation of the arrival of a national tour-ing exhibit, “The Wall That Heals,” at Marco Island’s Veterans Memorial Park. The park will be home to The Traveling Wall from 7 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, through sunset on Saturday, Dec. 10. Admission is free, and the exhibit will be open 24 hours a day. From 1:30-4 p.m. each day, the names and ranks of all 1,954 deceased Vietnam Veterans from Florida will be read, and the playing of “Taps” will follow. The Traveling Wall is a half-scale replica of the original Vietnam Veter-ans Memorial (The Wall) in Washing-ton, D.C. Measuring 250 feet wide, it features all 58,272 names of American servicemen and servicewomen who are missing or were killed during the Viet-nam War that ended in 1975. Since 1996, “The Wall That Heals” has spread its healing legacy to millions of people in more than 350 cities nationwide. Marco Island is the only Florida stop on the exhibit’s current two-year tour. And there’s much more than The Traveling Wall. The exhibit’s transportation trailer transforms into an information cen-ter and traveling museum that display memorabilia and offer computers to help visitors search for names of Viet-nam veterans. Tracing paper will be available for those who wish to trace a name on the wall. Nearly 200 volunteers will assist with The Traveling Wall’s visit to Marco Island. Resident Lee Rubenstein, who learned about The Traveling Wall while he was chairing the Marco Veterans Memorial Fund committee, led the effort to bring the wall to Marco. “We expect a huge turnout,” Mr. Rubenstein says about the four-day exhibit. “Some high school teachers are incorporating the exhibit into their cur-riculum. It’s a nice way to pay tribute to those whose lives were lost.” Residents can request that names of other fallen soldiers be included in the readings by e-mailing Carole Roberts at caroletroberts@comcast.net. Bereavement tents will be set up for veterans and their families who wish to speak with Marco clergy and local psychologists. Other interest groups will have helicopters and many other war-era transportation vehicles on dis-play as well. The opening ceremony for “The Wall That Heals” is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7. The ceremony also will recog-nize the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. A closing ceremony will be at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund continues to raise money to build a major museum near The Wall in the nation’s capital. Visitors to The Traveling Wall are encouraged to bring photos of Vietnam veterans to be included in a national database now containing more than 20,000 photographs of the 54,292 men and women who died in Vietnam. On the date of death for each veteran, a life-sized photo and biography of the veteran will be projected onto a large screen at the planned museum. Monetary donations made during “The Wall That Heals” visit to Marco will be shared between VVMF and the Marco Veterans Memorial Fund, which is hosting the exhibit with support from IberiaBank. Not just any one town host “The Wall That Heals.” Full support from the city and local merchants is required to pull off an event like this. Mr. Rubenstein’s 15-member committee raised $17,000 cash and numerous in-kind commit-ments in a short amount of time, and the Marco Island City Council waived the customary special event fees and arranged for additional law enforce-ment for safety and security. Dave Belgrade chairs the team that will escort the exhibit onto Marco Island on Tuesday, Dec. 6. “The entire escort team stretches for at least three miles,” Mr. Belgrade says, adding the team is made up of state and local law enforcement along with hun-dreds of motorcyclists from veterans organizations and special motorcycle groups throughout Southwest Florida. The team will depart from the Daniels Parkway rest area at Exit 131 on I-75 at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6. Registra-tion to be part of the escort team will be from 8-10 a.m. For more information about the exhibit, visit www.vmf.org.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 B11 +++ Is it worth $10? YesIf theres one thing you can say about the old MuppetsŽ television show that ran from 1976-81 and the early Muppet movies, its that they were so funny and sweet they made you feel good inside. Its a simple idea thats deceptively hard to pull off. And so perhaps the best compliment one can give the first Muppets movie in 12 years, appropriately called The Mup-pets,Ž is that it captures that old magic with gusto. Oh, how weve missed Kermit, Miss Piggy, Sam Eagle and every critics favor-ites, Statler and Waldorf. The great thing about the movie is that writers Jason Segel and Nicho-las Stoller have clearly missed them, too, because the story revolves around a genera-tion of Muppets fans who would love to see the old gang reunited. Its Gary (Segel) and Marys (Amy Adams) 10th anniversary, and to cele-brate, hes tak-ing her from Smalltown, U.S.A., to Los Angeles to see the sights. The catch is that Garys non-human, Mup-pet-like brother Walter (voice of Peter Linz) „ whos the biggest Muppets fan in the world „ is also tagging along. Upon arriving in L.A., they learn oil baron Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) is going to purchase and tear down the old Muppet theater if Kermit (voice of Steve Whitmire) cant come up with $10 million to buy the building. So Gary, Mary, Walter and Kermit get the Muppets back together (montage-style, naturally) for one last hur-rah to save whats theirs. Part of the fun is seeing what the Muppets are up to now: Piggy and Gonzo are super successful, Fozzies slummin it, Bunson and Beaker need a break from the lab and Animal, well, he needs to stay away from the drums. There are guest stars aplenty with some great surprises up director James Bobins sleeve, and the new tunes „ especially Lifes a Happy SongŽ in the beginning „ fit right in with classics such as Rainbow Connection.Ž Heck, even the Muppet Barbershop Quartet singing Smells Like Teen SpiritŽ doesnt feel awkward or out of place. Whats more, there are plenty of selfreferential cracks about the budget, plot, length of the film and more. And thanks to Fozzie Bear, there are also plenty of jokes that are so bad theyre good. The best thing about The MuppetsŽ „ both the franchise and this movie „ is the earnest playfulness and jovial spirit embued throughout. This movie will hit notes of nostalgia for the older generation of Muppets fans and should find an entire-ly new generation in the youth of today. Did I mention how great it is to have the Muppets back? Q My Week With Marilyn +++ (Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Ken-neth Branagh) Young, well-to-do Colin (Redmayne) wants to join the film indus-try in 1950s England, and lucky for him his first job is on a set with Laurence Olivier (Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Williams). Much of the focus is on Colins time with Monroe, and the story is nicely told „ but the real highlight is Williams phenomenal performance. Rated R. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part I + (Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner) Vampire Edward (Pattinson) and Bella (Stewart) marry, but werewolf Jacob (Lautner) and the other wolves grow con-cerned when Bellas pregnancy threatens their livelihood. Bad acting, bad dialogue, bad visual effects, bad storytelling „ every-thing about this is a failure. Rated PG-13.

FLORIDA WEEKLYB12 WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, 2011 Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?Žby Mindy Kaling(Crown Archetype, $25)REVIEWED BY ROSE M. CROKESpecial to Florida WeeklyEmmy-nominated writer, actress and producer Mindy Kaling, who plays self-absorbed customer-service rep Kelly Kapoor on the hit TV show The Office,Ž can now add author to her already impressive resume. In her comedy memoir, Is Everyone Hang-ing Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns),Ž Ms. Kaling chronicles her childhood growing up with her parents (both Indian immigrants) and older brother in Cambridge, Mass., and shares her funny observations on topics such as friendship, l ove, fame, writing and office work „ both real and staged. A self-proclaimed shopaholic „ she has her credit-card number memorized „ Ms. Kaling finds it relatively easy to channel the celebrityand fashion-obsessed office gossip who entertains legions of OfficeŽ fans each week with her spot-on delivery of droll one-liners. When she joined the show, Ms. Kaling was 24, new to Los Angeles and the only woman on a writing staff of eight. Now, at 32, she continues to write for the show and also has directed two episodes. Ms. Kaling typically works 16-hour days, yet doesnt complain. She has achieved the level of Hollywood fame she wants, which, to her, is being so famous that she can never get convicted of murder in a court of law. Celebrity does have its consequences. The title of her book comes from a time when Ms. Kaling was working so hard that she sensed that friends had stopped inviting her to dinners, birthday parties and other social engagements because she had declined them so many times. In an age where many starlets are famous for being infamous, Ms. Kalings collection of essays intro-duces readers to a good girl who made good. Her voice, which she admits she never tires of hearing, is refreshing and unapologetic. She takes great pride in being respectful, intelligent, opinion-ated and hardworking. Funny, inspiring content aside, the childhood photo of a bespectacled Ms. Kaling holding a scruffy-looking hand puppet on the back cover of the book is endearingly priceless.

What was a 3-hour tasting event at 150 Worth Ave. will become a series of dinners, parties and tastings in several locales, featuring chefs from New York, New Orleans and throughout South Florida. The festival is Dec. 9-13. We felt it was time for this to grow,Ž said David Sabin, event organizer. It fell into a run-of-the-mill food and wine event and we wanted it to stand out.Ž Friends at the James Beard Foundation in New York City offered access to big-name chefs and food notables, as well as ideas for events to showcase their talents. Some monies from the event will benefit the foundation. The fest kicks off Dec. 9 with the Beach Bash at the Four Seasons Palm Beach. Chefs Michael Schwartz, of Michaels Genuine in Miami and Grand Cayman Island, and a James Beard Award recipient, along with Darryl Moiles of the Four Sea-sons, will prepare small-plate tastes of Schwartzs seriously good food.Ž Schwartz is known for his use of seasonal, sustainable and locally pro-duced foods whenever theyre available in cuisine that he labels seriously good food.Ž Bacardi is the beverage sponsor for the party, to be held on the pool deck at the Four Seasons, overlooking the ocean. Live entertainment is provid-ed for dancing, and guests at this event get a copy of chef Schwartzs first cook-book, Michaels Genuine Food: Down to Earth Cooking for People Who Love to Eat.Ž Tickets are $150 in advance; $200 at the door.
