A27 X CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION South Florida Fair kicks off 100th entertainment spectacle BY JAN NORRISjnorris@floridaweekly.comEven old Henry Flagler came across the bridge to par-ticipate in the South Florida Fair back in its beginning. He had a vested interest in what was then called the Palm Beach County Fair „ he put up the prize money in 1912 for area farmers and ranchers who brought their finest cattle to display in the tent on the grounds of the county courthouse. That fair lasted four days. The event grew over the years, attracting between 69,000 and 70,000 personsŽ in 1929, according to a Palm Beach Post article. This year the 17-day South Florida Fair kicks off its centennial cel-ebration Jan. 13 at the fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. Except for a nine-year shut-down caused by the Depression and World War II, the fair has given Palm Beach County residents a chance to eat corn dogs, watch the rabbit judg-ing and ride the Ferris wheel every winter.SEE FAIR, A8 XShe is one of the most famous artists in America, and she lives and works in northern Palm Beach County. So when Edna Hibel turned 95, it was cause for celebration. On Jan. 8, Ms. Hibel was feted with a performance by Copeland Davis. But the festivities continue for the artist, known for her illustrations of chil-dren. Also in the works:From 1-4 p.m. Jan. 13, there will be Ednas Birthday High Tea, with Ms. Hibel, family and friends sharing stories. Cost is $35; RSVP is required. From 6-9:30 p.m. Jan. 14, there will be a formal birthday dinner, with live enter-tainment and dancing. Cost is $95; RSVP is required. And from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Jan. 14-15, there will be a Museum of Arts Festival selling works by Ms. Hibel. Admission is free. After years of owning a gallery on Palm Beachs Worth Avenue, Ms. Hibel now exhib-its her work at her museum near Florida Atlantic Universitys MacArthur Campus in Jupiter. She received a Leonardo da VinciŽ World Award of Arts in 2001, and was commissioned in 1995 to create a work to commemorate the 75th anniversary of women receiving the right to vote. She also was commissioned to complete artwork for the 200th anniversary of the White House, Project Hope, the Epilepsy Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and to produce a United Nations postal stamp and first day cover. The Hibel Museum of Art is at 5353 Parkside Drive (corner of University Bou-levard and Main Street), Jupiter.

I even considered dressing in black from head to foot for 40 days. I prefer pink, of course. A conservative, of all things. Call me the devil, why dont you? Call me a low-down Yankee liarŽ (Shane to the black-hat gunfighter Jack Wilson in the 1953 movie, ShaneŽ). Call me a miserable muck-raking SOB, a commie pinko, or even, if you have to, a Generation Xer or Yer or Zer. Im not any of those things, but you can call me that. Just dont call me a conservative.The fact of the matter is, Im an unrepentant, uninhibited, unaltered and frequently unintelligible liberal. Dyed in the wool. A lefty. A knock-kneed, flower-waving, open-minded pissant, as my football coach and my drill instructors used to say. Ive never been sure what a pissant is, or a conservative either, really „ but it cant be good. When some thin-lipped, square-jawed, crew-cut block of Chromosome Y calls you a pissant at the top of his lungs from a point six inches north of your nostrils, you feel bad. Even your gas-operated, air-cooled, lightweight, hand-held, shoulder-fired M-16 rifle that fires a 5.56 mm round at 3,100 feet-per-second „ a creature not known for sensitive feelings „ probably feels bad. But when an intelligent liberal calls you a conservative, thats even worse. It probably violates the Geneva Convention. Its a form of torture, in my book. The thoughtful letter suggested, first, that we should solve the problem of illegal immi-grants with better laws to control immi-gration and a policy of amnesty for those already here; and second, that I should stick to writing about dogs (a previous column) and not politics. Both solid suggestions.The letter also forced me to think about those two workhorse terms: ConservativeŽ and Liberal.Ž Conservative comes from the Latin conservare (conservo, conservare, conservati, conservatium): To maintain existing views, marked by moderation or caution (and) traditional norms of taste, elegance, style or manners.Ž Could that define me or you?If by those traditional norms you mean racism, sexism, religious intolerance, greed, self-righteous profiteering, and intolerance, then no. I could not be those things. But if by conservativeŽ you mean the willingness to live with others who hold dif-ferent opinions (thats a traditional Ameri-can norm), or the willingness to defend our universal rights to freedom of speech, religion, lifestyle or equal treatment with arms, or the unrelenting determination to make our own way and help those who cant (remember the traditional parable of the good Samaritan?), then yes. I hope Im a conservative, difficult as that is to admit. Oddly enough, all of those terms describe traditional norms or values, both good and bad. So the question becomes not, Are you a conservative?Ž but What kind of conserva-tive are you?Ž Which brings us to liberal.ŽThe word springs from the Latin, liberalis, defined as freedom, or befitting the free.Ž Could we be defined as liberals „ as people in favor of freedom, and things befit-ting the free, such as free speech, wor-ship uncensored by government and equal opportunity? Well, of course. You and I arent interested in the freedom to abuse anybody we please anytime, or the freedom to compel our divine right to the exclusion of everybody elses, are we? Maybe I am, I admit. But I know you arent. Which proves that whoever you are, youre a got-danged liberal, too, just like me. And here all this time youve been telling your friends and family youre a conserva-tive. But come to find out, youre a ƒ a ƒ a ... a GD Liberal. And here I come to find out that Im a ƒ a ƒ a ƒ GD conservative. If theres a closet close by, maybe we should hide in it. On second thought, lets not. The people who traditionally hide in closets might be hiding in there as we speak. It could get ugly. Nowadays, of course, the words conservativeŽ and liberalŽ have slipped their hal-ters and gotten out in the big pasture. Con-servative, loosely applied, means a Repub-lican. And liberal, just as loosely applied, means a Democrat. At best its sloppy. Is a conservative supposed to be against all government programs and social regulation, for big capitalism and unrestrained markets, against the little guy or gal and for big weapons and armies in a hostile world? I know some conservatives who refuse to be pigeonholed like that. And is a liberal supposed to be for all government programs and social regulation, against unrestrained markets, for the little guy and gal and against big weapons and armies, whether the world is hostile or not? I know some liberals who refuse to be pigeonholed, too. Just so you know, a conservative is not supposed to like preserved wetlands, a clean environment and fair wages for workers if they get in the way of the American green-back and its prolific multiplication, along with flag-waving. A liberal is not supposed to like a successful corporation, a strong army, fiscal discipline and a competitive market if they get in the way of kissing and hugging, along with flower-waving. Conservatives are not supposed to like liberals, either, and vice versa. But you know what? Some of the finest human beings and most faithful friends Ive ever known are GD conservatives, surpris-ing as that is. And I hope some of them (per-haps the more foolish) could say that about a GD liberal like me. What I conclude from all this is that dogs are probably far ahead of human beings „ they dont worry about whos liberal or conservative. And my correspondent is probably far ahead of me. Which is why I should probably stick to writing about dogs. (Note: A version of this column first ran in Florida Weekly in 2010.) Q COMMENTARY Whensomeoneofgoodwillwroteto s c v o w roger WILLIAMS

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYRepublicans divided, citizens unitedThe Republican caucuses in Iowa, with its cliffhanger ending, confirmed two key political points and left a third virtually ignored. First, the Republicans are not enthusiastic about any of their candidates. Second, we have entered a new era in political campaigning in the United States post-Citizens United, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that unleashed a torrent of unreported cor-porate money into our electoral process. And third, because President Barack Obama is running in this primary sea-son unchallenged, scant attention has been paid to the growing discontent among the very people who put him in office in 2008. As a result, the 2012 presidential election promises to be long, contentious, extremely expensive and perhaps more negative than any in history. Mitt Romney technically prevailed in the Iowa caucuses, squeaking out an eight-vote margin over late-surging Rick Santorum. Libertarian Ron Paul garnered an impressive 21 percent of the vote in the crowded field. Note that the Republican Party does not allow a recount of the handwritten, hand-count-ed ballots, and that the final Romney edge was first reported on right-wing Fox News Channel by none other than its paid commentator Karl R ove, the architect of George W. Bushs two con-troversial presidential election wins. So, the prevailing wisdom is that while Willard Mitt Romney retains the veneer of electability,Ž he cannot convince more than 25 percent of Republicans to vote for him. Santorums surge was a late-breaking coalescence of the anti-Romney vote, boosted by massive voter flight from Newt Gingrich that was inspired by a withering campaign of anti-Gingrich attack ads attributed to Romney. While Romneys Iowa operation maintained a positive campaign strat-egy, a super PAC that supported him went on the offensive. Restore Our Future, according to NBCs Michael Isikoff, spent $2.8 million in ads in Iowa, more than twice the amount spent by the Romney campaign itself, all attack-ing Gingrich. The super-PAC is not limited in how much corporate or indi-vidual money it can take in, and does not have to disclose the identity of its donors. While super-PACs are pre-vented by law from coordinating with campaigns, three of the founders of the pro-Romney Restore Our Future were campaign staffers on Romneys failed 2008 presidential bid: Carl Forti, Charlie Spies and Larry McCarthy. The Iowa caucuses can be seen as the first presidential electoral race waged after the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Courts landmark Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling. As summarized by the SCOTUSblog, the split court decided that political spending is a form of protected speech under the First Amendment, and the government may not keep corporations or unions from spending money to sup-port or denounce individual candidates in elections.Ž Election seasons are usually a boon for local TV stations, which sell air-time over the public airwaves. Iowa broadcasters were reporting a less-than-projected windfall, however, due to the record number of candidate debates, in which the candidates got to present themselves to the public, in essence, for free. The last-minute onslaught of negative ads brought station revenues back up. Dale Woods, general man-ager of WHO TV in Des Moines, told Broadcasting & Cable magazine: Its normally never negative here, but thats one dynamic Ive seen change with the PAC money involved. The candidate buys are positive, but the PAC money is negative. I think thats a dynamic youll see all over the country.Ž The advertising industry is watching campaign spending closely, predicting up to $4 billion in spending across all the campaigns, including those for pres-ident, Senate, House and governorships. But theres hope. People are fighting back against this flood of secret money infecting U.S. elections. State legislators in California are calling for a constitu-tional amendment overturning Citizens United. The New York City Council is voting on a similar measure, follow-ing Los Angeles, Oakland, Calif., Alba-ny, N.Y., and Boulder, Colo. Last week, Montanas Supreme Court restored a 100-year-old ban on corporate spend-ing directed at political campaigns or candidates. Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig is calling for a constitutional conven-tion. As it is defined in the U.S. Consti-tution, 34 state legislatures would need to call for a convention, which could allow an amendment banning corporate money from elections. Lessig, a favorite of progressives, is recruiting the right-wing Tea Party to help. He told me, People can call for a convention for any purpose ... the only option we have for intervening to fix this corrupted system is the only option the framers gave us, which is outsiders organizing to fix the problem in Washington.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 rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThatcher vs. Decline v f a a m e amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Margaret Thatcher is on the cover of Newsweek, or „ the next best thing „ Meryl Streep is on the cover as the former British prime minister in a new biopic.Thatcher is a rich theme. If the types who expound on such things didnt so hate her politics, shed launch a thousand dissertations on those inex-haustible academic themes of class and gender. As the daughter of a grocer, she was looked down upon as the personifi-cation of, in the words of one highfalutin critic, the worst of the lower-middle-class.Ž As a woman in a mans world, she was venomously attacked by her oppo-nents as a bitchŽ or the bag.Ž At this moment in our history, though, it is former Thatchers central purpose that is most important: Her unyielding rejection of British decline. She rejected it with every bone in her middle-class body even though sophisticates scoffed at such a naive nationalism. She rejected it even though the grandees of her own party said it was inevitable. She rejected it even though she knew reversing it meant forcing a wrenching political and economic crisis. The acrid whiff of decline is in the air in America, in the enduringly weak employment picture, in the spiraling debt, in the persistent pes-simism about our pros-pects and in the intellectu-al preparation for a post-American world.Ž Part of the volatility in the Repub-lican presidential field is the unfulfilled hunger for a Thatcher-like figure. Needless to say, Thatchers arent often on offer. The country she wanted to save was by the late 1970s an embarrassing wreck. After World War II, Britains leaders had grounded the ship of state on the shoals of socialism. The country was broke and beset by maliciously powerful unions. Humiliatingly, it had to go to the Interna-tional Monetary Fund for a loan. Henry Kissinger told President Gerald Ford in 1975, Britain is a tragedy „ it has sunk to begging, borrowing, stealing.Ž It wasnt enough to rage against Britains fate without correctly diagnosing the source of its sickness. As Claire Ber-linski, author of the book-length study of Thatcher titled There Is No Alterna-tive,Ž notes, she made an unsparing and comprehensive case against socialism. In the end,Ž Thatcher thundered, the real case against socialism is not its economic inefficiency, though on all sides there is evidence of that. Much more fundamental is its basic immorality.Ž Bold but never reckless, as prime minister Thatch-er undertook a compre-hensive free-market pro-gram to tame inflation, restrain spending, cut taxes, privatize industries, bring unions to heel and deregulate the financial industry. At one point, her approval rating dipped to 23 percent, but her vindica-tion was a sustained return to dynamism and growth. Her victory in the Falklands War rep-resented a turning point in national pride. She was Ronald Reagans partner in defeating the Soviets. By the end of her career, she had accomplished what Britains consensus had once deemed impossible. In todays America, the circumstances are very different, and the basic chal-lenge is profoundly the same. Thatchers lesson is that decline is inevitable only if its self-fulfilling prophets prevail. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickLet me tell you an insider secret from the world of veterinary medicine. There are certain people we cant wait to see come in with their pets. While as health profes-sionals we certainly dont offer them better medical care than people we dont like as much, I do admit that these folks are shown the red carpet. What makes these clients VIPs, how do you become one, and what will you receive in return for your efforts? The more items you tick off this list, the higher your ranking as a veterinary VIP:Q Youre a tiny bit early for your appointment.QYou treat the entire staff with respect, warmth and good humor.QYou come armed with a full history of your pets current medical problem, the more detailed the better „ e.g., vomited three times yesterday; it was slimy, yellow and contained bits of cardboard packaging.QYouve trained your pet to welcome, not fear, a veterinary visit, and youve gone through gentling techniques with your pet, so we can easily examine everything.QYou accept our recommendations after an honest, open discussion.QYou pay your bills.QIf we exceed your expectations, you recommend us to others with enthusiasm and frequency.QOn occasion, for any or no reason, you bring us a plate of brownies or cookies to feed a tired crew.In return you get:QStaffers who fight to take your call and veterinarians who fight to keep you as their client.QA veterinary team that lights up even brighter when you walk through the door.QSomehow we find a spot on an overbooked schedule for you or find a place to board your pet over a holiday, even though weve been booked full for months.QWe dont watch the clock as closely when its your turn in the exam room.QPerhaps most important, you can call us after hours for help (VIPs often have their veterinarians personal cell number!), and well either pick up the phone to talk you through it, race to the practice to meet you, or refer you to someone else and tell them to take extra-special care of you. Little things mean a lot, and they all add up. With respect and a positive attitude on both sides, your relationship with your veterinarian will mean the best experience possible for all.

Researcher Maria Jose Albo of Denmarks Aarhus University told Live Science in November that the spiders typically obtain sex by making valuable giftsŽ to females (usually, high-nutrition insects wrapped in silk), but if lacking resources, a male cleverly packages a fake gift (usually a piece of flower) also in silk but confoundingly wound so as to distract her as she unwraps it „ and then mounts her before she discovers the hoax. Albo also found that the male is not above playing dead to coax the female into relaxing her guard as she approaches the carcassŽ „ only to be jumped from behind for sex. Q People with issuesProminent Birmingham, Ala., politician Bill Johnson describes his wife as the most beautiful woman in the world,Ž but he revealed in December that, while on temporary duty recently as an earthquake relief specialist in New Zealand, he had clandestinely donated sperm to nine women (and that three were already pregnant). Becoming a biological father is a need that I have,Ž he told a New Zealand Herald reporter, and his wife had been unable to accom-modate him. Asked if his wife knew of the nine women, Johnson said, She does now.Ž Indeed, Alabama newspa-pers quickly picked up the story, and Mrs. Johnson told the Mobile PressRegister that there is healing to do.Ž Q Least competent criminalsThe unidentified eyeglass-wearing robber of an HSBC Bank in Long Island City, N.Y., in December fled empty-handed and was being sought. Armed with a pistol and impatient with a slow teller, the man fired a shot into the ceiling to emphasize his seriousness. How-ever, according to a police report, the gunshot seemed to panic him as much as it did the others in the bank, and he immediately ran out the door and jumped into a waiting vehicle. Q The continuing crisis Q Son Theodore Zimmick and two other relatives filed a lawsuit in November against the St. Stanislaus cemetery in Pittsburgh for the unprofessional burial of Theodores mother, Agnes, in 2009. Agnes had purchased an 11-foot-by-8-foot plot in 1945, but when she finally passed away, the graveyard had become so crowded that, according to the lawsuit, workers were forced to dig such a small hole that they had to jump up and down on the casket and whack it with poles to fit it into the space. Q Managers of Prospect Park in Brookl yn, N .Y., decided recently to relocate the statue of Abraham Lincoln that since 1895 ha d occupied a seldomvisited site and whose advocates over the years had insisted be given more prominence. It turned out that the most viable option was to swap locations with a conspicu-ous 1906 statue of Dr. Alexander Skene. Lincoln is certainly universally revered, but Dr. Skene has advocates, too, and some (according to a December Wall Street Journal report) are resisting the relocation because Dr. Skene (unlike Lin-coln) was a Brooklynite, and Dr. Skene (unlike Lincoln) had a body part named after him (Skenes glands,Ž thought to be vitalŽ in understanding the G spotŽ). Q A December New England Journal of M edicine r eport described a womans losingŽ her breast implant during a Pilates movement called the Valsalva (which involves breath-holding while bearing downŽ). The woman said she felt no pain or shortness of breath but suddenly noticed that her implant was gone. Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospi-tal in Baltimore discovered that, because of the womans recent heart surgery, the muscles between the ribs had loosened, and the implant had merely passed through a rib opening. (They returned it to its proper place.) Q Convoluted plans Q A balaclava-wearing man kidnappedŽ Julian Buchwald and his girl-friend in 2008 in Australias Alpine National Park as they were picnick-ing. The man separated the couple, tore their clothes off and buried them, but Buchwald escaped and rescued the girlfriend, and they wandered around naked for days before being rescued. The balaclava-clad man, it turns out, was Buchwald, whose plan was to con-vince the woman by his heroism that she should marry him (and more imme-diately, to have sex even though they had both pledged to remain virgins until marriage). Buchwald was convicted in Victoria County Court and sentenced in December to more than seven years in prison. Q Laurie Martinez, 36, was charged in Dec ember with f iling a false police report in Sacramento, Calif., alleging that she was raped, beaten bloody and robbed in her home. It turns out that she had become frustrated trying to get her husband to move them to a better neighborhood and that faking a rape was supposed to finally persuade him. Instead, he filed for divorce. Martinez is employed by the state as a psychologist. Q After 12 almost intolerable months, Ms. Seemona S umas ar finally received justice in November from a New York City jury, which convicted Jerry Ram-rattan of orchestrating a complex and ingenious scheme to convince police that Sumasar was a serial armed robber. Ramrattan, a private detective and CSIŽ fan, had used his knowledge of police evidence gathering to pin various open cases on Sumasar as revenge for her having dumped him (and to negate her claim that Ramrattan had raped her in retaliation). Ramrattan was so creative in linking evidence to Sumasar that her bail had been set at $1 million, causing her to spend seven months in jail. (Said one juror, If I had seen this on TV, my reaction would be, How could this really happen?Ž) Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE


A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYAfter moving it from several locations, the county gave the fair 100 acres in 1957 for its present location „ the site of the old Palm Beach Speedway. The building of a stockade required 20 of those acres to be given back. Its auspicious beginning at the Southern Boulevard site was marked by a tornado that took out six tents „ remarkably injuring no one. It didnt stop the Miss South Florida Fair con-test, though. The beauty pageant that has waxed and waned over the years was part of what was still a hometown fair. Celeb-rities on hand included politicians „ Gov. Claude Kirk was shown in a photo admiring the vegetables. Local businessmen, entertainers and agricul-ture stars all came together for the big county affair. Annis Manning, 65, remembers the fair as a child growing up in West Palm Beach. My family owned a restaurant there called the Frat House on the fairgrounds next to the speedway,Ž she said. It was right where the midway is today. They ran it til about 76, and sold it. I grew up in a house where the cement plant is now on the west side of the fairgrounds, next to the stockade. Behind the restaurant, less than a block down was a fence with a gate in it, so the fair workers could come and eat at the restaurant. Everybody who knew about the hole in the fence as we called it, knew you never had to pay to get into the fair. There are people out there who still remember that, I bet.Ž She would grow up and work part time for the fair as a cashier for 25 years, and is now on the fairs board of trustees. I shouldnt say this, but between the hole in the fence and my working at the fair, I never once went in through the front gate to pay to get in.Ž With multimillion-dollar improvements over the years, including two Expo centers that create a 110,000-square-foot exhibition area and the Agriplex exhibition space, the South Florida Fair has grown into the second-largest fair in the state behind the Dade County Youth Fair „ its original parent. It now has a budget of more than $8 million and attracts hun-dreds of thousands over its 17-day run. The huge midway is a centerpiece, with agricultural and educational exhibits and commercial vendors in buildings surrounding it. The Expo buildings showcase both vendors and exhibits „ and the annual giant sand sculpture of the fair theme that is revealed in deeper detail each fair day. Corn dogs are still sold, but theyre ho-hum compared to Krispy Kreme hamburgers, fried Key lime pie and Dippin Dots ice cream pellets. In spite of the metropolitan growth of the county that was once an agricul-ture paradise, the fair maintains some of its past in its themes, quirky attrac-tions and contests. Proud parents can enter their tots in the Baby Beautiful contest or if theyre twice as lucky, the Twins Contest. Bud-ding Picassos can enter the Decorated Milk Carton or Jug contest. There are nine parades throughout the run of the fair „ with tractors from the turn of the century chugging down the breezeway, leading the way for marching bands and baton twirlers and dance teams. As in its early days, displays of livestock champions and the biggest vegetables grown by 4-H groups attract kids and adults alike. Horse drill teams prance in rings, and chickens and fan-cy-eared rabbits raised by 4to 6-year-olds compete for blue ribbons. The countys beekeepers exhibit a living hive, and the model train club members keep youngsters entranced watching dozens of cars travel miles of tracks through tiny plastic towns, tun-nels and over mountains. But hundreds of cows, chickens, turkeys, geese, goats, pigs and horses are among the biggest draws. Retired fair manager and president Buck Christian, who was with the fair from 1974 to 2004, spoke from his home in Lake Placid, recalling the fairs objective. Fairs should be educational,Ž he said. All the cows, the pigs, goats, chickens „ thats an American fair right there.Ž He notes all the people who come to the fair who learn for the first time how much agriculture there is in Palm Beach County. Where else are they going to see it today?Ž he wonders. Hes proud that this fair created the birthing tent where visitors can watch a calf being born right in front of them. Other fair directors came to the South Florida Fair to see how we set it all up. Im almost positive we had the first one at any fair in the country.Ž He recalls a woman rushing up to him after watching a calf being born in the mooternityŽ tent. She was all upset „ and said she watched the calf fall right there on the ground with no one around to help. I went to Billy Bowman, a rancher who was manager of the fair at that time, and told him about it. Why Buck, what do you think happens out in the pasture? I realized he was right, of course. This is what nature is all about, and I had forgotten, too.Ž The competition for the biggest vegetable is still going strong. Mr. Christian remembers the year of the great pump-kin. I dont remember which year it was, but we had the biggest pumpkin on record. And sure enough „ I dont remember the exact moment „ the pumpkin fell off the stand, went ker-flumpk and busted open.Ž It didnt make nearly the mess that the cake did, however, at the Diamond Jubilee party for the fair workers and their kids the night before the fair. We had a cake that must have been 10 feet square „ it was huge. We were all partying and had an elephant in the tent for Circus Night for the kids. That elephant just decided to sit right down on that cake! Youve never seen cake fly everywhere like that „ there was cake all over everything.Ž Urban lifestyles are why fairs across the country are struggling to maintain attendance „ and relevance. But there will always be a place for them, Mr. Christian said. There are people who truly love the fair, and it really comes down to people and the ones who work there. Its in their hearts.Ž One of those is Dottie Wright, 76, an ebullient longtime fairgoer and volun-teer. She has two necklaces full of fair pins, and her name and photo are on the Fair Hall of Fame in the new Expo building. When interviewed at her home near the Fairgrounds, she was busy working on panoramic eggs that she will dem-onstrate making in the craft hall at the fair. I started coming to the fair when I moved down in 67. I was working and would fly home from work to go get my mom and get to the fair and stay until it closed. We went every day.Ž Mrs. Wright competes every year in some of the craft and cooking con-tests. Both women and men, hopeful for blue ribbons, submit their handiworks and hobby favorites; a variety of skills and talent levels are on display in the crafters hall since very few submis-sions are rejected. Painted milk bottles sit next to beautifully carved maple bowls; inspiring landscapes hang next to paint-by-num-bers art. Crocheted afghans, decorated wedding cakes and knitted suits vie for blue, red or white ribbons. In the food contests, homemade pies, cheesecakes, jams, candies and cookies will bring ribbons „ but more impor-tantly, bragging rights „ to the cooks. Mrs. Wright has collected at least four or fiveŽ ribbons annually for her cooking. One was special, however. She entered a snack called One Minute Miracles. Theyre so simple „ a cup of sugar, a cup of extra crunchy peanut b utter and a teaspoon of vanilla. Roll em up in balls and bake them at 350 Žtil theyre done.Ž She wasnt expecting to win with these simple flourless cookies. There was a man who always entered that contest and always won. They called him up for third place, and I figured I might as well just get up and leave. They called another woman for second place and then they called One Minute Miracles for first place. I was shocked!Ž Early on, she worked for Manpower, which put her in jobs that got her into the fair free. One of her favorite jobs was as hostess for the Bonanza trailer in the late 60s. The TV western was popular at the time. Mrs. Wright was paid to dress in western wear and stand on the fake Ponderosa porch that unfolded from a trailer. I handed out the Ponderosa maps „ they looked like they were branded, remember?

Mr. Puthanveettil will receive $225,000 over three years from the prestigious Whitehall Founda-tion to study the role in long-term mem-ory of a motor pro-tein called kinesin. In this study, he will use the marine snail, Aplysia, a favorite of memory researchers because of its excep-tionally large neurons and simple nervous system. In addition to the Whitehall award, Mr. Puthanveettil has received a one-year, $100,000 grant from the Alzheim-ers Drug Discovery Foundation. Mr. Puthanveettil also plans to use that award to study kinesin, in this case to develop molecular screens to iden-tify small molecules that can modu-late kinesin function in the mammalian brain. This work will be conducted in collaboration with Scripps Research colleagues Peter Hodder, senior scien-tific director of lead identification, and William Roush, chemistry professor, executive director of medicinal chemis-try and associate dean of graduate stud-ies at Scripps Florida. To be selected for an award by the Whitehall Foundation is a great honor,Ž Mr. Puthanveettil said. Im also delight-ed with the grant from the Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation, another important institution that supports the search for new therapeutics. Both awards will help advance my research substantially.Ž Mr. Puthanveettil has been interested in axonal transport and its role in the molecular mechanisms underlying long-term memory storage, in particu-lar the cellular transport of gene prod-ucts such as proteins and RNAs in the brain. In a 2008 study published in the journal Cell, Mr. Puthanveettil showed for the first time that the induction of long-term facilitation „ the cellular basis of memory and learning involv-ing enhancement of communication between neurons „ requires upregula-tion of specific isoform of kinesin. He hopes his research will lead to an understanding of the basic pathology of various neurological disorders. For example, in the case of Huntingtons disease, kinesin is responsible for transport of molecules that play a role in the disease,Ž he said. We want to know how the transport of these mol-ecules is modified during the diseases development. Likewise for Alzheimers disease „ if you can find a way to manipulate the transport system, you may be able to overcome some of the defects involved in the diseases pathol-ogy.Ž The Whitehall Foundation assists scholarly research in the life sciences, especially in dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by federal agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. The foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest. For more information, see The Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation is the only non-profit orga-nization whose sole mission is to accel-erate the discovery and development of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimers disease, related dementias and cognitive aging. Since 1998, the ADDF has granted more than $51 mil-lion to fund more than 370 Alzheimers drug discovery programs in academic centers and biotechnology companies in 18 countries. See The Scripps Research Institute is one of the worlds largest independent, non-profit biomedical research orga-niza tions.

Headquar-tered in La Jolla, Calif., the institute also includes a campus in Jupiter, where scientists focus on drug discovery and technology development in addition to basic biomedical science. Scripps Research currently employs about 3,000 scientists, staff, postdoctoral fel-lows and graduate students on its two campuses.

See Q Scripps scientist wins 2 grants to study long-term memorySPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPUTHANVEETTIL Scientists discover relation between protein, binding partners Using a blend of technologies, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have painted a new picture of how biochemical infor-mation can be transmitted through the modi“ cation of a protein. Previously, scientists believed that during the pairing of proteins and their binding partners (ligandsŽ), proteins modi“ ed their shape while ligands re-mained stable. The new study shows this one-size-“ ts-all solution is not entirely accurate. Instead, the situation resembles a kind of complex but carefully organized dance routine, where the ligand samples a variety of binding modes while the protein also modi“ es its shape, a process that results in their pairing and changes in the protein critical for its function. These new “ ndings, published in the Jan. 11 edition of the journal Structure, could affect future drug design. Using a multidisciplinary approach, we gleaned something from our data that no one else has,Ž said Douglas Kojetin, an assistant professor on the Scripps Flori-da campus in Jupiter, who led the study. The conventional wisdom is that ligands bind in one orientation but our study shows that they can bind in multiple modes. That means if we can optimize a ligand to bind in mode B rather than mode A, we might be able to select the therapeutic results we want.Ž Q

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY The Palm Beach County Cultural Council, the official arts agency serv-ing non-profit cultural organizations and professional artists throughout the county, has announced the schedule for its grand opening week in the councils new home in downtown Lake Worth. In December, the council moved into the historic Robert M. Montgomery Jr. Building at 601 Lake Ave. The building first opened in 1940 as the Lake Worth Theater and later housed three different art museums, but has been closed to the public since 2005. Scheduled to reopen to the public on Jan. 19, the newly renovated building will serve as the cultural councils head-quarters. The buildings 11,000 square feet will include galleries for community exhibitions, an artist resource center, tourism services, education and training facilities, as well as meeting space. It is critically important for the umbrella organization for art and cul-ture in Palm Beach County to have a hub,Ž Cultural Council Board Chairman Michael J. Bracci said in a written state-ment. The building will help people understand the importance of art and culture to our quality of life. It provides a place for the cultural community as well as our residents and visitors to gather and find information. It is also vitally important to the strategic goals of the cultural council. We couldnt be more pleased.Ž Named after the late Robert M. Montgomery Jr., a prominent attorney and philanthropist, the building was renovat-ed with assistance from the Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), which committed $700,000 for the project. The CRAs grant is part of its larger Cultural Renaissance Program, focusing on redevelopment through the establishment of artists, cultural cen-ters and institutes within Lake Worth, while expanding the economic base and improving the investment image of the area. When the Montgomery family donated the classic building to the cultural council in January 2010, it was the largest single donation in the councils 33-year history. I am extremely proud to make this gift in honor of Bobs memory, and the legacy he built in the legal, cultural and philanthropic communities,Ž said Mary Montgomery, when she donated the building last January. Giving this historic building to the cultural council will strengthen Bobs vision of a healthy cultural foundation developing better students, better citizens and a better community.Ž To date, the cultural council has spent more than $1.5 million to renovate the building. In addition to the original donations by the Montgomery family and the Lake Worth CRA, major sup-porters of this project include Irene and James Karp, the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation, the Estate of Nancy Gray-son, Alex and Renate Dreyfoos, The Roe Green Foundation and Berton E. & Sallie G. Korman. Additional donors include Northern Trust Bank of Florida, Bruce A. Beal and Francis V. Cunningham, Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf, Mrs. Cil Draime and Herbert and Diane Hoffman. The icing on the cake is that we are continuing in the footsteps of other visionaries who saw that this building could be a place for art,Ž Cultural Coun-cil Chief Executive Officer Rena Blades added in the statement. From its origins as a movie theater, to J. Patrick Lannans repurposing it for his collection, to its years as Palm Beach Community Col-leges Museum of Contemporary Art and the Palm Beach Institute of Con-temporary Art under Robert and Mary Montgomerys leadership, this building has a remarkable past. We feel incredibly blessed with that history, and also an awesome sense of responsibility to continue such an impressive legacy of arts programming and visibility.Ž Q Cultural Council opening in Robert M.

Few investors have not heard of his genius and his investment accomplishments „ accomplishments not just for him-self but for his shareholders in Berk-shire Hathaway, the publicly traded company comprised of a multitude of acquitted companies and scores more investments. Berkshires style ranges from investing in a small percentage of a companys equity (getting to know youŽ); taking a very meaningful expo-sure (might want to buy all of youŽ); and full and friendly ownership, even if sized in the mega billions. Because of the stellar rise in Berkshires stock performance over the past 40 years, many a small investor has become a millionaire as he or she got on the Berkshire train when it was first leaving the station and never got off. Berkshire is not a bad investment today. Just because of its sheer mega-billion size, however, Berkshire is, per Warren himself, constrained in its rate of growth, and more gains will come from operations of its acquired compa-nies than from its investment portfolio. Also, some of Warrens recent success-ful investing is due to his capacity to show up in times of systemic crises (or a particular corporations crisis) with a bundle of billions. He has the ability to strike a deal within hours and close it within days, always making sure that he has been well paid. Beyond excellent stewardship demonstrated by Warren for his sharehold-ers, he has given the investing public „ money managers and the individual investor alike „ the inspiration to seek undervalued or valuable companies and proof that consistent out performance is feasible. Warrens successful value investing (i.e. beating the averages) has broken the back of the argument that the equity market is efficient (all available infor-mation is known and reflected in the prices of the stocks) as his out perfor-mance was not the luck of a good year or a few good years; it was rain or shine good performance. Yes, all information that is publicly available might be know-able (i.e., information dispersion might approximate efficiencyŽ), but it is also absolutely true that not all money man-agers pay attention to all information or process it correctly. As a result, there are under-followed or misunderstood companies and sectors; opportunities to buy on the cheapŽ exist. You might be thinking, Well, isnt this what every equity manager does?Ž and my answer is, No ƒ not at all.Ž Many professional investors are attempting to forecast the overall equity market and sector rotation; equity selection might be driven based on those forecasts and have little to do with value analytics. But market forecasting is a daunting task and most managers do a miserable job of it. If market timing is wrong for just a few days that have big moves, then managers might really get poor performance. Sector allocation can be akin to jumping from one fast horse to another, ultimately to be in the winners circleƒ unless the rider falls off the horse. The value investors proposition is not to forecast the market or figure sector rotations; rather, it is to fully research a company, determine if its price rep-resents its value, and decide whether to own it, possibly for a long time. Dividends (or a stream of distributions) deemed reliable figure importantly in the analytic process. In online forums (such as Value Forum), the investors collaborate and share information along these lines; the goal is identifying sourc-es of income (far above market norms) and seriously undervalued equities. If value investors get really good at their research and have comfort in their investment decisions, then they con-centrate their portfolios in the com-panies they really like. Their goal is not to heighten risk but to make sure that they have not diluted the value of their skill and hard work. Such portfolio concentration was a critical element behind Warrens early success; before he entered the mega-billions arena, ten stocks was a full portfolio limit for him. So, bottom line, 1.) Value investing is still alive and well and a viable pursuit by the average investor; 2.) If you pursue this venture, consider joining an online forum to help you in the heavy lifting of all the research and as a way to get feedback (other than talking to your dog); and 3.) If you are already a value investor and really wanting to follow in all of Warrens footsteps, then con-sider the merits of greater concentra-tion in your portfolios equity positions. But remember that when markets are tanking, all equities, even value stocks, go lower, and it is only asset classes non-correlated or negatively correlated to equities that can buffer such down-drafts. As I always recommend, talk to your adviser. Also, consider the merit of having multiple advisers and retaining advisers having expertise in specific investment areas outside the traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds. None of the aforementioned should be con-strued as investment advice. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems, 239-571-8896.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 A17 At the center of the storm in recent years, insurance legislation may take a back seat this session as lawmakers turn their attention to redistricting and a budget shortfall in a critical election year for both parties. But industry officials expect lawmakers to attempt some targeted changes in property insurance and the state-backed hurricane fund while addressing fraud and abuse in the automobile and workers compensation markets. Probably for the first time in a decade, a major property insurance bill is not going to suck all the air out of the room,Ž said Sam Miller, executive vice president for the Florida Insurance Council. We just dont believe there is going to me a major hurricane insur-ance bill this session.Ž Likewise, disagreement over nonproperty insurance related issues may prove too difficult a lift. Among the most controversial are proposals to fix the states no-fault automobile insur-ance system and stem rising costs in workers compensation by limiting the ability of physicians to dispense re-packaged drugs. The session may become very stressed with a lot of competing inter-ests,Ž said Don Brown, a former state representative who now lobbies for insurance interests. While it may be a long shot to see that they all get addressed, we do believe that it is abso-lutely necessary that we advance the dialog on them.ŽPIP insurance will take stageWith lawmakers leery of making dramatic changes to the states property insurance market, eyes will turn to automobile insurance as competing parties joust over how to stem a surge of personal injury protection claims that appear to have followed legislative changes made several years ago. Adopted in 1972, PIP coverage requires a drivers insurance company to pay up to $10,000 to cover medical bills and lost wages after an accident regardless of who is at fault. Florida is one of a dozen states to require PIP coverage. The Insurance Information Institute, a national industry research group, estimates that fraud alone could cost policyholders nearly $1 billion in higher premiums this year. Lawmakers in 2007 tried putting caps on what would be paid for various medical procedures. But then claims and litigation skyrocketed as attorneys for motorists and heath care provid-ers wrangled with insurance companies over payment. We believe there are some straightforward, fraud-fighting fixes that will help the system and help the consum-er,Ž said Donovan Brown, general coun-sel for the Property and Casualty Insur-ers Association of America, no relation to Don Brown. But beyond targeted fraud protection, which has received widespread support, further reforms may be difficult. A task force set up by Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, for example, completed its work without coming to consensus on a long list of topics from clinic oversight to attorney fees. Insurers want caps on attorneys fees and reductions in multipliersŽ, calcu-lations that allow fees to go far higher than the $10,000 individual benefits awarded in individual PIP cases. Plaintiff attorneys, however, led by the Florida Justice Association, contend such multipliers are needed because individual cases often have an impact on thousands of similar claims. The Legislature must narr owly f ocus PIP reforms on fraud only, without restricting the access to courts for those truly injured in auto accidents,Ž the association said in a recent policy state-ment. If the Legislature decides that the PIP system is beyond repair, the FJA supports considering a move to a fault system where drivers will be responsi-ble for the harm they cause by carrying bodily injury liability insurance.Ž Even efforts to clamp down on fraud may be difficult as groups like the Flor-ida Medical Association fight to limit restrictions to truly fraudulent clinics and providers. The FMA believes that the focus of any legislative effort should be on giv-ing law enforcement and the Depart-ment of Health the resources and tools they need to stop the fraud, put those who break the law in jail, and revoke the licenses of the health care providers who participate in schemes to defraud the PIP system,Ž said FMA spokeswom-an Rebecca OHara. Workers’ compensationOnce boasting some of the highest rates in the country, Floridas workers compensation insurance market was largely retooled in 2003 following com-plaints by business owners and insurers over skyrocketing costs. Since then, rates have dropped by more than half. In October, however, Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCar-ty approved an 8.9 percent rate hike requested by the industry. Among the biggest cost drivers, Mr. McCarty cited drug repackaging. The practice involves doctors dispensing drugs to injured workers rather than writing prescriptions to be filled at pharmacies. This practice has become a critical cost driver in the workers com-pensation insurance marketplace,Ž Mr. McCarty said in October. It is impera-tive that the Florida Legislature address this issue during the upcoming legisla-tive session.Ž Supporters of physician dispensing, including the FMA, argue that the prac-tice benefits workers compensation patients by making them more likely to take medications than if they have to go to pharmacies. It is an important part of the workers comp system and encourages patient compliance, which can ultimately save money in the long run by helping people get back to work more quickly,Ž Ms. OHara said in a statement. Critics including Associated Industries of Florida and the National Fed-eration of Independent Businesses say prices for the repackaged drugs are inflated and account for 2.5 percent of the proposed 8.9-percent average rate increase for businesses.Citizens and CAT FundBarring major rewrites to the states property insurance system, which was last modified in 2011, lawmakers are likely to address targeted changes deal-ing with Citizens Property Insurance Corp, the state-backed insurer that now holds 1.5 million policies. They will also be asked by some to alter the way the states Hurricane Catastrophe Fund is financed, by plac-ing more burden on Citizens customers who live along the coast while allow-ing insurance companies more time to amass the capital needed in the event of a major storm. Citizens now has the power to place a surcharge on nearly every insurance bill in the state if it cant cover such loss-es. Although industry estimates vary somewhat, Citizens could pay roughly $20 billion before assessing policyhold-ers. That figure includes $6.5 billion included in the CAT fund. Given mar-ket pressures, however, state officials overseeing the fund say they may not be able to find enough bond buyers if the state gets hit with a massive storm.

One online forum offers doz-ens of answers, all wrong, because the blog-gers are contemporary artists familiar with a modern process called cold patina.Ž The artist covers the metal with chemicals such as cupric chloride and ammonium chloride to create a bluish green patina. The finish will wear off unless you cover it with a fixa-tive and then maybe wax. Cold-painting was a technique popular during the Art Deco period, which started in the 1920s. Bronze figures, most of them made in Vienna, were actually covered with enamel paint. The result is a very colorful figure or lamp. Small Viennese animals and other figures, often under 2 inches tall, were especially popular and sell today for $100 to $200. Art Deco figurines of women, often dancing, were made of bronze or spelter (white metal) for the main part, ivory for the hands and faces. Again, the metal part was colored with a special paint. Another group of cold-painted bronzes were scenes depicting Arabs in tents or on camels. Many had a small light bulb inside and were used as night-lights or lamps. The best known of these figures were made by Namgreb,Ž the mark used by Franz Bergman (1861-1936), who reversed his name to make it sound more exotic. Signed pieces sell for hundreds of dollars today. If you have a cold-painted bronze or spelter figure, be careful. The paint chips easily. Do not use metal polish or any chemi-cal cleaner on them. Just dust or wipe with a damp cloth. Q: I was given an original invitation to the inauguration of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson dated Jan. 20, 1961. I would like to know if its worth anything and who might want it. A: The inauguration of President Kennedy and Vice President Johnson was held on the East Portico of the U.S. Capitol. Since 1981, most inaugurations have been held on the West Front of the Capitol. The 1961 inauguration included several firsts,Ž including the first Catholic president-elect, the first time both parents of the president-elect attended their sons inauguration and the first time a poet (Robert Frost) participated in the ceremony. It was also the first time the parade was televised in color and the first time Army flame-throwers were used to clear snow from the path of the parade. Kennedy was the last president to wear a stovepipe hat to his inauguration. Some invi-tations include the words Please present the enclosed card of admission,Ž but many more were issued to the public as souvenirs. Invitations to the 1961 inauguration have sold for $60 to $150 or more. Those with the original mailer are worth more than those without it. Q: We have a 10-piece walnut dining room set made by the Phoenix Furniture Co. of Grand Rapids, Mich. The heavy Victorian-style set includes a table with three leaves and six chairs, buffet, server and china clos-et. Each piece has either machine carvings or applied decorations. Is the set antique? A: The Phoenix Furniture Co. was founded in Grand Rapids in 1872. The company was acquired by Robert Irwin in 1911. He merged Phoenix with another furniture company in 1919 to form the Robert W. Irwin Co. But the Phoenix Furniture Co. name continued to be used on its original lines until at least 1926. A set made before 1912 is antique.Ž Pieces in various revival styles were manufactured by Phoenix or Irwin from about 1890 until the late 1910s. Q: I have a Star Trek classic brass belt buckle that reads Star Trek Lives!Ž on the top and depicts the USS Enterprise in the middle of a star field. On the bottom right it reads, These are the voyages. .Ž The back reads Tiffany Studio, New York.Ž Can you give me some information on this? A: Brass buckles marked TiffanyŽ have been around since the 1960s, but Tiffany did not make them. Star Trek buckles like yours show up for sale online for high prices and very low prices, but they usually sell for $5 or $10. Other common buckles supposedly made by Tiffany include Wells Fargo buckles and Civil War uniform buckles. They were made to look old but date from no earlier than the 1960s. The original Star TrekŽ TV series ran from 1966 through 1969. It was fol-lowed by an animated TV series, three TV sequels and a TV prequel. The first Star TrekŽ movie was released in 1979, and 10 others followed, the most recent in 2009. Production will begin on another sequel in 2012. Value of your buckle: under $20. Q: I inherited eight life-size copper figures of insects, lobsters, shrimp, crabs and crayfish. They were all made in Japan years ago and have Japanese signatures on them. Their arms, legs and other body parts move on hinges. Can you tell me some-thing about them and if theyre valuable? A: You may have a group of valuable ornamental figurines called jizai okimono.Ž They are realistic metal figures of animals. Experts believe they were first made by armor craftsmen in Japan in the 18th century. They are still being made. Depending on condition, artistry and age, a single figure can sell for more than $1,000. Tip: If your old ivory-beaded necklace is becoming yellow, do not clean it. Yellowing is just a sign of age.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIm pulling my hair. Im rending my clothes. Im raising an angry fist to the sky. But what I really want to do is grab the lonely hearts out there and give them a good shake. If people saw how theyre hurting their own opportunities in love, the world would be a much less lonely place. I went out to dinner recently with two male friends, men I adore who are handsome, funny and smart but chroni-cally single. If I meet a woman and she tells me she went to Harvard and she has a good job,Ž one of them said, then I know wed be a good fit.Ž I cocked an eyebrow. This man writes poetry and talks to his cat. He wears his hair in a mop that falls over his face. When he speaks about the future, he speaks of a wife and children and a house in the country. Hes kind, com-passionate and nurturing, and I was surprised to hear none of these qualities topped his list. Instead, hes looking for bullet points on a resume. The problem with this kind of preconceived list of qualities is that it often acts as blinders. We narrow in on spe-cific attributes so much that we miss a range of possibilities. You never know who your soul mate is going to be,Ž my friend Susie says. Like my male friends I was dining with, Susie is a great catch who is inex-plicably „ and perpetually „ single. She and I talk endlessly about relation-ships and trade old boyfriend stories like baseball cards. We read the same books on dating and dissect tips over cocktails. John T. Molloys Why Men Marry Some Women and Not OthersŽ is in heavy rotation these days. In it, Mr. Mol-loy presents statistical evidence gath-ered from interviews with just-married women. His findings are telling. The women who get married, he says, are the women who put a concentrated effort into finding men. They skip the art museum and head for the sports bar instead. Married women are also willing to give a wide range of bach-elors a shot, he tells us. In fact, the women who are most successful in the mating game are the ones willing to date a spec-trum of men. Which makes sense.Theres no formula for the precise blend of physical and mental chemistry needed to spark romance. Love involves a mysteri-ous, complicated alchemy. When we cast a wide net, we open ourselves to the possibility of partners we never considered, some with quali-ties we didnt even know we were seek-ing. Which is why I was so disappointed to overhear Susie on the phone with another single friend this week. Hes an assistant manager at Home Depot?Ž she said, laughing into the phone. You can totally do better than that.Ž Ive spent so much time preaching to this particular choir that her words felt like a sudden betrayal. Isnt that exactly what weve been talking about all along: trying new people, casting a wider net? I gnashed my teeth. I thought about shaking her. I wanted her to know that true love doesnt wear blinders. And it might be wearing a tool belt.

It seems impossible to make four hearts against proper defense by East-West, but the fact is that Fry not only made the con-tract, but there was also no way of stop-ping him. West led the ace of diamonds, East signaling for a continuation by playing the eight. But West shifted to a spade at trick two, from which Fry conclud-ed that East must have started with an eight-card diamond suit because it would have made no sense for West to shift to a spade if he had another dia-mond to lead. Taking full advantage of this knowledge, Fry won the spade shift with the king, led a trump to the ace, played a spade to dummys ace, then led the jack of trumps from dummy and ducked it to Wests queen! This deliberate concession of a trump trick that did not have to be lost was certainly extraordinary, but it was the only way to make four hearts. West stewed for a long time, trying to find a suitable reply to the Greek gift he had received, but there was no escape. In practice, West tried the ace and another club. This allowed Fry to score three club tricks and dispose of his remaining diamond loser, so the con-tract was made. Observe that it would not have helped West to lead a spade after taking his queen of hearts. In that case, South ruffs the spade in dummy, discarding a club from his hand, and leads a club to the king. West takes the king with the ace and returns a club to dummys queen. Declarer then ruffs a club, establish-ing dummys fourth club as a trick, and crosses to dummy with a trump to discard his diamond loser on the good club. Q CONTRACT BRIDGE BY STEVE BECKER Famous Hand


B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYContempoŽ features works created in the past two years in a variety of media. When we have the call to artists, its called Pushing the limit on art.Ž Ms. Deits says, adding that the museum looks for art with an eye toward the unexpected.Ž It is all part of the museums plan to extend its reach beyond a sleepy small-town gallery. We really do want to have this so its more of a regional arts center and where artists can come and meet col-lectors and collectors can learn whats on artists minds,Ž Ms. Deits says. The ArtCenter has been big on career development, too, and is featur-ing workshops that highlight such basic skills as photographing artwork. They help artists be more professional and to make an income from their art,Ž she says. And part of that is simply being seen in the best possible light. The way they enter competitions is all digital now and they just arent up to speed with how digital works,Ž Ms. Deits says. One of those instructors has three works in the exhibition. David Willison, a Tequesta artist, teaches that workshop on photograph-ing artwork. He also creates mixed-media pieces. One piece is titled The U.S. Health Prayer System.Ž Its a pun for lack of a better word on U.S. healthcare system,Ž Mr. Wil-lison says. Our healthcare system is in really rotten shape and the political debate surrounding it hasnt helped. A prayer may be your best bet. Thats the spirit of the piece.Ž The spirit of the piece also involves incorporating a range of techniques. Its a hybrid technique, with digital images in a collage technique,Ž he says. The other two are really kind of combination processes that are sort of old and new. I find myself drawing on older techniques and newer technol-ogy.Ž One artist who works solely in new technologies is AJ Brockman. I wanted to come up with something that would appeal to tropical South Florida... underwater scenes are so overdone (guilty myself) so I wanted to come up with something a little more unique,Ž he writes in an email. How is that?They are all tropical fish you would find here in South Florida and they are all edible... I went about creating them in Photoshop a lot like a street artist would use a stencil and block and large areas of color,Ž he writes. It is called the FishEyez series and they all have reflections of divers in their eyes „ sort of the last moment before being photographed or caught.Ž Mr. Brockman, who is in his early 20s, makes his living creating large-format advertising signs for trucks and such. But his art is on a much more intimate scale. I love working big! That is one of the benefits of the digital format. I am able to create and my only limitation is how large of a printer is at my disposal. I have a lot of new stuff in the works that will be very big,Ž he writes. I am also a big fan of unique mediums including acrylic (what the fish are printed on) and metal.Ž If Mr. Brockmans contributions to Con-tempoŽ look to the sea, then Karla Wal-ters work looks to the birds. Ms. Walters ceramic crows captured attention this fall dur-ing a show at Palm Beach State College. But her attraction to the birds came by accident. Someone asked me to make a crow teapot. I said, Let me think about it,Ž she says. Whenever I took a walk with the dogs, the crows would start cawing at me. Then I saw the PBS spe-cial Murder of Crows.Ž That show documented how the birds mate for life. But it also showed just how clever and smart they were. I just started reading about them and came away with the idea that theyre just like humans „ probably smarter than humans,Ž she says. Her crows are built from a press mold, and fired three times. She carves and paints and individual personalities emerge. And, apropos of everything, one of the materials used in the birds feet is telephone wire. We see them on telephone poles on the golf course,Ž Ms. Walter says. And during a visit to her parents in Cali-fornia, she and her mother saw crows feasting on something unmentionable. There were two crows just chowing down on it. I just loved it „ natures cleanup crew,Ž she says. It is that range of media and viewpoints that excites the Art-Centers Ms. Deits, but visitors wont need to rush through the museums gallery space. Weve left more space around the work than we nor-mally do. We wanted it to be where each piece can be con-templated on its own,Ž she says. That leaves room for works like ONeal Bardin IIIs instal-lation. Its a large drawing that is six feet high and it has another drawing on a piece of floating resin on top of the drawing,Ž she says. Its all about offering a forum for artists. So what excites Ms. Deits most about this show? I would say its the diversity in media and subject matter the artists are work-ing in. There seems to be more drawing, and I think thats a lot more in art now that you see more drawing and more emphasis on drawing, and not trying to imitate another style but coming through in their own voice.Ž Q CONTEMPOFrom page 1 >> What: “Contempo” and “ArtyBras” >> When: Through Feb. 11 >> Where: Lighthouse ArtCenter, Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta. >> Cost: $5; free for members and for children 12 and under.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY “There’s kind of that one foot in reality of their personalities,” Mr. Gog-gin says. “They really were funny and competitive.” Hence the show.“It really all started off as a joke. A friend of mine who is a Dominican brother gave me a mannequin of a Dominican nun when they changed their habits. I thought maybe I could bring the character to life,” he says. In this latest incarnation of “Nunsense,” Sister Robert Anne teaches audience members how to create their own cabaret acts. And if they don’t feel like singing, they can bask in the talent of Sister, as sung by Christine Mild. And how do audiences react?“People just really seem to get into it. You don’t have to be Catholic. You don’t have to be into any ‘Nunsense’ shows. You can just have a fun time.” But what do the sisters think?“We have huge support from the nuns because I think they really like being seen as people who joke around and have a good time and tap dance,” he says. Only two of Mr. Goggin’s inspiration nuns are still living, but they consider themselves to be big stars, he says. “Sister Robert Anne, who is the streetwise nun, is very much alive, she’s now in her late 60s,” he says. “She’ll call up and say I hear you have someone portraying me. Is she any good?” Mr. Goggin answers without hesitation. “Christine Mild is just an amazing performer, just to sit and listen to her,” he says. “She asks for volunteers to come up and be her backup singers because she has a vow of poverty and can’t afford backup singers.” And while Ms. Mild is in Florida, Mr. Goggin has arranged for her to record her Sister act for posterity. “We’re all pretty much about having fun,” he says. “I was talking with my brother over Christmas. My business manager was talking about will I retire? And my brother was like, ‘Retire? You’ve never had a job!’” Well, he actually has had a job, writing for “The Carol Burnett Show.” “Every year we got renewed and just kept going,” he says. But he didn’t begin his show business career as a writer. “I started out as a performer. I came to New York as a singer and got in the Broadway show of ‘Luther,’ about Mar-tin Luther,” he says. The show starred Albert Finney.“It was the first time Albert Finney had performed in the United States and he was portrayed as the new Olivier. It was a huge hit and a great way to start.” He also sang for five years in a comedy folk duo, where his career evolved into writing. “The writing is great because you can create something when there’s no work for you,” he says. Mr. Goggin now divides his time between a home in New York and a condo in Fort Lauderdale. “It’s been a terrific experience being able to go to these shows that I’ve put together and hear the audience laugh,” he says. “You feel good.” Q NUNSENSEFrom page 1 >> What: “Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class” >> When: 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 >> Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

MAINSTREET AT TONIGHT:Across the UniverseThe Ultimate Beatles TributeHear the music with an accuracy and attention to detail that can only be described as incredible.Free Event & Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome Mainstreet at Midtowns new 2012 Music on the PlazaŽ concert series has your Thursdays covered with another hot season of cool music. You can order beer, wine & food delivered right to you from CHUCK BURGER JOINT, and groove til your eats arrive. Now, you can enjoy music AND dinner under the stars at Mainstreet at Midtown. Block off 6:00 until 8:00 P.M. every Thursday through April 26th. Music on the Plaza … its a heart full of soul. It is both a blessing and a curse that in 2011 (more so than in any prior year but no doubt establishing a trend that will con-tinue) studios screened a lot less of their awful content for critics. What this means is that I was not invited to see certain mov-ies „ and in some cases, I was uninvited. This is why I did not see the generally reviled In Time,Ž The Darkest Hour,Ž Shark Night 3D,Ž The Three Muske-teers,Ž Drive AngryŽ or Apollo 18,Ž among others. That said, I did see plenty of dreck. Here are my picks for the worst of 2011. Q Red Riding HoodŽ … A red cloak, a talking wolf, terrible performances and a large metal elephant. Sounds like an awful porno flick, but it actually describes Red Riding Hood,Ž one of the worst fairy tale adaptations youll ever see. The story was illogical, the production design was drab, and those hoping Amanda Seyfrieds hotness would make it worthwhile were disappointed by her baggy clothes and sulking. Q ArthurŽ … Now if the werewolf wouldve eaten Russell Brand in Arthur,Ž then wed be on to something. Too bad it didnt, because this would-be comedy wasnt at all funny, and Brand played the title role as an unlikeable louse we never give a damn about. And is it just me, or does Brand always look like he smells? Q Scream 4Ž … To prove how important an ending is, the last 10 minutes of Scream 4Ž have the dumbest, most insanely idiotic ending Ive ever seen. If it stopped after the first ending, however, with Sidney (Neve Campbell) dying and a new killer on the loose, it would have been a brilliant way to continue the franchise. Instead, it opted for tacked-on formulaic nonsense that didnt work, never could have worked and ruined the entire movie. Q Green LanternŽ … On one hand, I appreciate Ryan Reynolds handsomeness and charm. On the other, theres just no way his skin-tight suit was enough for me to enjoy Green Lantern,Ž a movie so over laden with visual effects it made my head spin. Then the 3D (and Blake Lively) made everything worse. Q Cowboys & AliensŽ … The biggest disappointment of the year, however, came with Cowboys & Aliens.Ž Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig have played the most iconic action heroes of the last 40 years (Han Solo/Indiana Jones and James Bond, respective-ly), but at no point do they give this movie hope of being any-thing more than insip-id trash. Worse, Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directed it like a straight drama, meaning it was zero fun. What a sad misfire. Q Spy Kids: All The Time In The WorldŽ … It wasnt just that the story, visual effects and 3D were terrible in Spy Kids: All The Time In The World,Ž it was the Aromascope that made this a real disaster. The idea was to scratch a number on the Aromascope card every time that number appeared on screen, but I kid you not, every number smelled the same. This is a good thing, though, because otherwise we wouldve smelled vomit for 90 minutes. Q Johnny English RebornŽ … Americans will just never find Rowan Atkinson funny. Hes a silent comedian in the sound era, and his impish little expressions, coy faux innocence and overall inability to make us laugh is tiring. Stay home in Brit-ain where subtle humor is most appreci-ated, Mr. Atkinson „ and for the love of mercy, stop exporting crap like Johnny English RebornŽ onto American movie screens. Q The SitterŽ … Fat Jonah Hill usually means good Jonah Hill, but there was nothing good about The Sitter.Ž The story, about an unwilling babysitter who takes bratty kids into New York City so he can buy drugs for the girl who uses him, was full of predictable jokes and unfunny scenarios. Usually Hills one-liners and I-dont-give-a-damn demeanor are enough for a few laughs, but nothing worked here. Q The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part OneŽ „ And finally, the worst of the year „ and the movie that literally made me angry to watch „ The Twi-light Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part One.Ž Ever wish you could un-see some-thing? The slow pace, hid-eously stupid characters and illogical plot were bad enough, but even worse was this: Ive been waiting for four movies for that whiny bitch Bella to die, and as a cruel joke in this one, she dies but then is undead. Of course, she did have full makeup and eyeliner on when she was born again, so that was realistic. I dont hate many movies, but I HATED this. So heres to a better 2012, one in which movie stars continue to flourish, new tal-ent bursts onto the scene and somehow, we are spared Breaking Dawn, Part 2Ž come November. Please?

Its the Westgate GreenMarket Express.The electric vehicle, complete with a 4-foot cucumber on the top, with wheels that look like cucumber slices and a radish head for a driver,Ž will deliver fresh produce to West Palm Beachs Westgate neighborhood. Beginning at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 28, the Westgate Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) will launch the West-gate GreenMarket Express, a mobile greenmarket designed to reach its low-income neighborhoods and encourage residents to eat healthy, nutritious food. The Express will travel the streets of Westgate each Saturday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m., until April, delivering fresh veg-etables and fruit. The locally grown produce will be picked Thursday and on the Express Saturday, at prices below those in supermarkets. The whimsical Express was designed by greenmarket guru Peter Robinson, president of Mildly Delirious Design Inc. to appeal to children and adults alike. In addition to the produce, the cart also will provide nutritional infor-mation and recipes courtesy of the Palm Beach County Department of Health and an on-board nutritionist. The Quantum Foundation paid for the Express vehicle. The USDAs Supple-mental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will allow qualified residents to pay with food stamps. The Express will double their produce order at no extra cost. This will encourage low-income residents to purchase from the cart and have fresh vegetables in their homes. The quality produce for the GreenMarket Express will come from Farming Systems Research Inc., a 10-acre facility at Green Cay Farms in Boynton Beach, which supplies The Breakers, Caf Bou-lud and 32 East, among others.
