A10 X The town of Jupiter, Jupiter Medical Center, the Palm Beach County Health Department and El Sol, JupiterÂs Neighbor-hood Resource Center, have partnered to open the free Jupiter Volunteer Clinic. In response to the growing number of uninsured and underinsured individuals living in the Jupiter area who have limited access to health care, the organizations Â„ with input from the Florida Public Health Institute Â„ have developed an innovative solution. By maximizing existing resources, the group has created a collaborative model that includes space, supplies and staff pro-vided by the Palm Beach County Health Department; ancillary services including laboratory and imaging services donated by Jupiter Medical Center; and the invalu-able dedication of volunteers Â„ physi-cians, nurses, physician assistants, medi-cal students and interpreters Â„ who are generously donating their time and skill. In addition, the Quantum Foundation has awarded grant funding to El Sol to support the work of a clinic coordinator. ÂBy quickly working together, these organizations established a clinic that will provide much-needed health services to people in our area who otherwise would not have access,ÂŽ Jupiter Mayor Karen Golonka said in a prepared statement. ÂThe town was pleased to play a role in organizing and facilitating this effort.ÂŽ Dr. Alina Alonso, director of the Palm Beach County Health Department, said in the statement, ÂThis is a hybrid among health centers, and we are very pleased to do our part by contributing clinic space, supplies and staff.ÂŽ The president and CEO of JupiterTown, agencies partner to open free Jupiter medical clinicSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The verdict is in: A jury of experts chooses which artists can appear in the show BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comAn estimated 150,000 peo-ple come to Jupiter each year to see the work of artists from across the country during the three-day ArtiGras festival. But when those 280 or so artists converge on Abacoa Town Center to meet those hordes of art lovers the weekend of Feb. 18, they donÂt just show up; they must be approved by a panel of five jurors. ÂThey have to be from the arts industry,ÂŽ says Rebecca Seelig, ArtiGras PR committee chair.

Â“IÂ’m inspired to paint because it allows me to get away from my normally structured life. When IÂ’m in my studio and I face a completely white piece of paper, the moment is full of emotion ... itÂ’s scary and exciting all at the same time. Painting allows me to express myself with creative abandon; itÂ’s my chance to make all the decisions. If I want to paint a purple sky, I can. If I want to add more buildings, I do. I also like not knowing how the painting is going to turn out. I have an initial vision, but sometimes the results are surprising,Â” Ms. Negley says in a statement.

The recent news articles about Marines pissing on the dead enemy and (others) make great news for some. It just goes to show that one Âaw, shitÂŽ wipes a lot of Âatta boys.ÂŽ Military action can bring out the best in men and the worst. In Korea, the taking of the ears of the enemy was a common practice of a number of the nationalities involved. It is no better or no worse than throwing acid in the faces of young women who want to have an education; or decapi-tation or mutilation of corpses; or dis-playing these bodies as a visual threat to others. In most cases, the heroics by Marines are swept under the rug and/or consid-ered ordinary. Consider the events that brought about the deaths of Cpl.

I will not bore you with other history of the USMC, but it speaks for itself.I would agree that the Marines involved in the recently reported events need to be brought up short and made to be respon-sible for their behavior and actions.Our oldest (a USAF officer) was in Baghdad in the early days of the Iraqi events. His description of the demeanor of the Marines did me proud. Enough of history. John Bunch is the stuff Marines are made of and is a credit to his family, to the Corps, and to mankind.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYAmericaÂ’s pro-choice majority speaks outThe leadership of the Catholic Church has launched what amounts to a holy war against President Barack Obama. Archbishop Timothy Dolan appealed to church members, ÂLet your elected leaders know that you want religious liberty and rights of conscience restored and that you want the administrationÂs contraceptive mandate rescinded,ÂŽ he said. Obama is now under pressure to reverse a health-care regulation that requires Catholic hospitals and univer-sities, like all employers, to provide con-traception to insured women covered by their health plans. Bill Donohue of the Catholic League said, ÂThis is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets.ÂŽ In the wake of the successful pushback against the Susan G. Komen Race for the CureÂs deci-sion to defund Planned Parenthood, the Obama administration should listen to the majority of Americans: The United States, including Catholics, is strongly pro-choice. Rick Santorum most likely benefited from the 24-hour news cycle this week with his three-state win. Exactly one week before the caucus/primary vot-ing, on Jan. 31, The Associated Press broke the story that Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a $2 billion-per-year breast-cancer fundraising and advoca-cy organization, had enacted policies that would effectively lead it to deny funding to Planned Parenthood clinics to conduct breast-cancer screenings, especially for women with no health insurance. Linked to the decision was a recently hired Komen vice president, Karen Handel, who, as a candidate for governor of Georgia in 2010, ran on a platform to defund Planned Parenthood. The backlash was immediate, broad-based and unrelenting. By Feb. 3, Komen reversed its decision. On Feb. 7, Handel resigned from Komen. Adding fuel to the ire was news that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had issued the regula-tion requiring employer insurance plans to provide contraception. The coup de grace, on primary/caucus day, was the decision handed down by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturning CaliforniaÂs controversial Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriages. For Santorum, in a primary battle with Mitt Romney, it was Âthree strikes, youÂre in.ÂŽ As a conservative Catholic and father of seven, Santorum has long waged the culture war, with a focus on marriage, abortion and sex. He once lik-ened homosexuality to bestiality. According to the Guttmacher Institute, which studies reproductive health issues globally, in the United States, Âamong all women who have had sex, 99 percent have used a contraceptive method other than natural family plan-ning. This figure is virtually the same among Catholic women (98 percent).ÂŽ According to a Public Religion Research Institute poll, 58 percent of Catholics believe that employers should provide employees with health-care plans that include contraception. Catholic activists who acknowledge the broad use of contraception among their church members, despite its offi-cial prohibition, suggest women can Âgo elsewhereÂŽ to get the preventive care. And if they canÂt afford to? Loretta Ross, national coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective in Atlanta, told me: ÂThis rule really allows low-income women, women who are dependent on their health care, to access birth control Â„ women of color, in particular ... if you donÂt want to use birth control, donÂt buy it, donÂt use it. But donÂt block oth-ers who do want to use it, who cannot afford it, from accessing it.ÂŽ One possible solution to the debate came from a surprising quarter. Michael Brendan Dougherty, a Catholic com-mentator, was in church a couple of weeks ago when he heard the priest read out a letter from Archbishop Dolan encouraging Catholics to oppose the president. Dougherty, who supports the churchÂs opposition to the regula-tion, suggested to me that a single-payer health-care option could solve the problem: ÂIt would solve this particular problem of conscience, as it has in Europe. The bishops donÂt like that the government subsidizes abortion or con-traception, but they are not in full mode of fury, because they are not being asked to formally cooperate with things they view as sinful.ÂŽ Loretta Ross agrees with the singlepayer solution, but says the current contraception controversy masks a Âwar on women with all this rhetoric about religious freedom and care for not only the pre-born, but now, with the attack on contraception, youÂre attacking the preconceived. ... WeÂre not going to take it lying down. And as the fight with the Komen Foundation proved, we are a force to be reckoned with. And weÂre actually going to work to strengthen President ObamaÂs stand in supporting contraceptive access.ÂŽ Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Â„ Amy Goodman is the host of ÂDemocracy Now!,ÂŽ a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of ÂBreaking the Sound Barrier.ÂŽ If Clint Eastwood narrated ÂThe Cat in the Hat,ÂŽ the words of Dr. Seuss would instantly take on a menacing author-ity. He could read the latest worthless United Nations condemnation of Syria and make Bashar Assad tremble. So if youÂre Chrysler and want to air a propagandistic advertisement implic-itly touting your government bailout as whatÂs best about America, Eastwood is a natural frontman. The movie tough-guy and former Republican mayor of Carmel, Calif., will make everyone take notice. He will dare you not to believe him. He will invest a sugar-coated nar-rative of DetroitÂs comeback with every bit of his gravelly voiced credibility. EastwoodÂs two-minute ad during halftime was one of the most memora-ble of the Super Bowl (putting aside all the Doritos spots, of course). Eastwood walks toward the camera in a dark tun-nel and says, in his slightly threatening near-whisper, ÂItÂs halftime.ÂŽ Lest you think thatÂs a cue to get up and reload on nachos and beer, he intones, ÂItÂs halftime in America, too.ÂŽ What follows is a half-baked tale about the revival of the automotive industry wrapped in economic nation-alism: Dirty Harry does corporatism. Eastwood says that Americans are hurt-ing and that Âthe people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together. Now, Motor City is fighting again.ÂŽ We all pulled together? As euphemism, this is clever; as history, it is false. Congress never approved the bailouts. Given the option to do so explicitly, it declined. The Bush and Obama admin-istrations acted on their own, diverting TARP funds to Detroit regardless of the letter of the law. In EastwoodÂs telling, a legally dubious act of executive high-handedness qualifies as patriotic collec-tive action. What Chrysler and GM desperately needed in their extremity was to go through Chapter 11 reorganization to pare down wages and benefits, shed uneconomical dealerships and ditch unnecessary brands. When the govern-ment got its hooks in them, it politicized this process and threw some $80 billion at the companies. Since weÂll never get an estimated $23 billion back, we all must be Âpulling togetherÂŽ behind Detroit still. Amid all the patriotic piety, Eastwood neglects to mention that Chrysler is now 58.5 percent owned by Fiat, an Ital-ian company. The heart-tugging images of Turin, Italy, apparently were left on the cutting-room floor. Walking near the end of his tunnel, Eastwood assures us of our hoped-for national comeback: ÂDetroitÂs showing us it can be done. And whatÂs true about them is true about all of us.ÂŽ Yet if Detroit is the model for our future, we should prepare for national collapse. Yes, it is getting a boost from resur-gent auto sales. Otherwise, it remains a byword for urban apocalypse. More than anything, the city is a standing warning of the perils of social disorder and unaffordable, dysfunctional govern-ment. It is good that Chrysler and GM are now off life support, but they took a lot of money weÂll never recover. A simple apology would be nice. Surely, Clint Eastwood could be hired to deliver an impressively sincere-sounding one.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickLooking for a way to keep your dog busy on those days when outside activi-ty is limited? ItÂs easy: Exercise his mind. Veterinarians have long been sounding the alarm on what the lack of exer-cise is doing to the health of our pets, triggering an obesity crisis thatÂs echo-ing our own. Regular exercise means pets with fewer health and behavior problems. But many of our dogs are also getting the short end of the stick when it comes to exercising their minds. And winter is a great time to teach your old dog a few new tricks. What many people donÂt realize is that training is a way of communicating with your dog, of sharing a common language. The more words you both know the meaning of, the more you are sharing your lives. How many words can your dog know? YouÂd be surprised. Consider that dogs who serve people with disabilities are routinely trained to perform dozens of different tasks. If you say your dog is not as smart as a service dog, weÂll argue back that even if heÂs only half as smart, he can learn a couple of dozen more things than he knows now. Besides, tricks are great fun for all dogs. While canine whiz kids such as poodles and border collies will pick up things quickly, any dog will catch on eventually, if youÂre patient, consis-tent and encouraging. You can teach tricks one at a time or a couple at once, as long as you have time to practice each one several times a day. Some dogs are better at some tricks than others. A small, agile terrier may find jumping through hoops easier than a bulldog would. And a retriever is probably more willing to hold things in his mouth than is a Pekinese. A basset hound can probably roll over but may find begging a little hard, being a little top-heavy. So think about your dogÂs form and aptitudes before you start. You may notice something special your dog does that would be enter-taining if you could get him to do it on command. You can. Give it a name, use that word when heÂs most likely to do his thing, and praise him for Âobeying.ÂŽ HeÂll make the connec-tion soon enough. You can dress up tricks a little, too, to make them seem more than they are. IÂve judged at events with prizes for pet tricks Â„ always a fun way to spend an afternoon. At one such event, the win-ner was a friendly Rottweiler who liked to jump in the air after soap bubbles. The trick itself wasnÂt that big a deal, really, except for the fact that the owner turned it into a crowd-pleaser with a few props. She put a ballerina skirt around the dogÂs middle, with matching pink leg warmers on her back legs and a tiara on her head. She then put on ÂSwan LakeÂŽ in her portable stereo and starting blow-ing bubbles. The dogÂs leaps and turns were a million times funnier when cho-reographed, and the pair won easily. Check trick-training books and websites for ideas. If your dog shows a true aptitude and is the friendly, easygoing sort, you might find that joining a pet therapy group can be something youÂll both enjoy, an activity that gives your dog a job while brightening the lives of other people.

Over the years it has raised more than $480,000, according to the chamber. ThereÂs a lot riding on the festival Â„ and on the jurors who select the art that appears. According to the juror prospectus, ÂThe jury consists of five experienced arts professionals representing museum curators, gallery owners, professional artists and art educators.ÂŽ Case in point: Amy Stepper.As recreation supervisor for the city of Palm Beach Gardens, Mrs. Stepper over-sees the cityÂs GardensArt installations at City Hall. ÂFor me, judging this type of event, I was so excited because it was going to give me the opportunity to judge so many different media,ÂŽ she says. Those five jurors must look at works in a dozen categories and judge them based on artistic merit, craftsmanship/technical expertise and marketing and booth presentation Â„ artists must be able to present their works well, too. ÂI never get to see that amount of work all at one time. It was wonderful for me to see such a variety of work that was so top-notch,ÂŽ Mrs. Stepper says. That can be intimidating.ÂYouÂre dealing with peopleÂs finances and artistic skills,ÂŽ says jewelry artist Gail Robin Gold, who just rounded out her second year as an ArtiGras juror. ÂI want all of them to be in the show. Every audition is a little bit frightening, and getting to a major show like that is a big deal for any artist.ÂŽ It was tough choosing work, Mrs. Stepper agrees, but technology helped.

That meant that while price is a consideration, jurors try to maintain ArtiGras as Âa place where people can see things they wouldnÂt ordinarily see Âƒ ItÂs not in everybodyÂs pocket that they can purchase these pieces of art like hand-blown glass and jewelry. It is like going into a museum. There are not always things you could acquire for yourself, but you could enjoy it.ÂŽ ItÂs a question of keeping things equal. ÂThey instilled in us the need to cre-ate a well-rounded show, so itÂs my responsibility to find what is unique and beautiful out there and to create a show that has something for everyone,ÂŽ says Ms. Gold, who lives in Palm Beach Shores. Jurors can lend their expertise.For example, Ms. Gold says, last year one of her fellow jurors was a profes-sional potter. The jurors were looking at a particular piece. ÂIt was beautiful, but he said you have no idea how difficult that is to do.ÂŽ That perspective is important Â„ itÂs what helps set one artistÂs work apart from another. ÂItÂs difficult. There werenÂt many that were not a good choice,ÂŽ Mrs. Stepper says. One Jupiter artist agrees.ÂItÂs one of the most difficult. They have a numerical system. ItÂs com-pletely blind so they donÂt know who theyÂre jurying. You could be a brand-new artist out of high school or a per-son who has been working for years, so if you get accepted your work was good enough to get in there,ÂŽ says Rick Lewis, a painter known for his large-scale Florida landscapes. Jurors use a numbering scale from 1 Â„ a simple ÂnoÂŽ Â„ to 7 Â„ Âabsolutely must haveÂŽ Â„ in scoring the artists. Not being accepted does not necessarily indicate a lack of talent. ÂI know people who have tried for years and still have not made it. ItÂs a fair process because I watched it one time,ÂŽ says Mr. Lewis, who moved to Jupiter five years ago after a career as an art and new products design direc-tor. The process is this, according to the juror prospectus: Jurors judge one category at a time, and view each category at least twice. The identities of the artists are not dis-closed to jurors. And decisions must be based solely on the quality of work in the four images each artist has submit-ted. The top 230 artists receive invitations to appear; other artists in the final round join a waiting list of alternates. ItÂs a process that can be nervewracking even for jurors. ÂI go in there with a real appreciation. IÂm not just an expert in my field, but I go in there with an artistÂs appre-hension,ÂŽ says Ms. Gold, who works in silver and semiprecious stones. But that apprehension has its rewards in the people who come to the festivals. ÂYou meet so many people who love art but they donÂt know what they love about it. TheyÂre amazed at people who do it,ÂŽ says Mr. Lewis. ÂItÂs great to sell something, but 90 percent is meeting the people who want to see your art and talk about it.ÂŽ Q COURTESY IMAGE Â“Jupiter Lighthouse / US 1 Bridge,Â” an acrylic on canvas by Palm Beach Gardens artist Paul Seaman, one of the Emerging Artists at ArtiGras.LEWIS COURTESY PHOTO Emerging Artist Susan Tancer creates these painted clutches and bags in her Palm Beach Gardens studio.

Scripps Research 130 Scripps Way, JupiterSaturday, March 3, 2012 9:00 a.m. Â… 1:00 p.m. Grace couldnÂt pretend anymore. SheÂd been making excuses for the longest time, but the truth just couldnÂt be ignored. She wanted to believe Bill was just being forgetful, but she knew in her heart it was much more serious. Bill had reluctantly agreed to see his doctor, and of course, Grace received confirmation of what she already knew: Bill was showing signs of AlzheimerÂs disease. For the longest time sheÂd pretended that if she didnÂt talk about it with friends they wouldnÂt know her life was changing radically. She had avoided making plans because she just didnÂt want conversations to get too personal. She was careful not to call her children or friends too often. They had lives of their own and she didnÂt want to become a burden. She felt so alone and uncertain about the future. And, the one person she could always count on to bring her up when she was hurting was no longer in a position to be her rock. Unfortunately, most of us are unprepared for the cruel indignities of serious illness or incapacity. We try to be realis-tic and brave, but much of the time, we canÂt help but feel that the rug has been pulled out from under us and there is nowhere to turn. It can be heartbreaking to see a once-robust loved one lose his or her mental capacities and ability to maintain self-care. We may get con-fused because at times our loved ones seem like their old selves, but then a lapse in their judgment sends us right back to reality. We may have trouble gauging what theyÂre realistically capa-ble of and what their limits are. ItÂs sad to know we canÂt count on them the way we used to and to watch as their pride is stripped. And, of course, itÂs painful to acknowledge how our feelings may change as the days progress. Dementia can affect a personÂs ability to use logic and reason, so things that seem obvious to us might appear very different to our partners. Behaviors will change and our partners may begin to repeat themselves, lose their bear-ings or behave inappropriately. These actions will understandably be distress-ing, and at times embarrassing or exas-perating. Our emotions may cascade as well, and we may begin to wonder if we are losing our sensibilities as well. Sadly, the person we may have looked to for camaraderie and support is no longer a source of solace. We may find ourselves becoming short-tempered, and then hating that weÂve become impatient because we know in our hearts that the person we always loved would not have behaved this way. We are grieving the loss of the relation-ship as it once was, sorting out feelings about having to assume roles with our partners we had not anticipated. Our friends are probably well aware of the changes and are quite sensitive to the situation. Sometimes when we donÂt talk about things, it can seem like Âthe elephant in the room phenomenon,ÂŽ where the air is strained. Everyone makes small talk, and the relationships become awkward and stilted. Rather than shy away from well-intended friends, we should make sure to bal-ance the interactions, so they feel cared about and listened to as well. Showing interest in the important concerns of our friends and taking care not to be overly demanding or dour, should nour-ish the relationships. Our friends and family may be grieving the loss of the connection as well. We may be tempted to rebuff their offers of assistance and in the process deny them an opportunity to feel helpful and involved. When we are caring for a loved one with AlzheimerÂs disease, it can be too easy to neglect our own needs and to forget that WE matter too. As time pass-es, there may be a need for outside help to assist with the personal care of the patient and potentially consideration of placement in a specialized facility. There are many local agencies that are well aware that the caregiver assumes a unique set of challenges and stresses and would be tremendously grateful for compassion, understanding and sup-port. These agencies offer families a wide array of services including adult day-care facilities, counseling and sup-port groups for caregivers. Additionally, they may offer guidance on handling finances and navigating the complex web of government entitlement pro-grams. Reaching out for the expertise of a case manager can be a tremendous relief. These individuals work closely with families to evaluate specialized needs and to interface with agencies that can offer much-needed services.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2011 A17 Anne M. Gannon, constitutional tax collector for Palm Beach County, has reached a settlement agreement with major Online Travel Companies (OTC), also referred to as Third Party Interme-diaries. Defendants include Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline and Travelocity. Defendants agreed to collectively pay the county more than $1.9 mil-lion in uncollected Tourist Develop-ment Tax, also called Âbed tax.ÂŽ Ms. Gannon filed suit against OTCs in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court in July 2009. The suit alleged the OTCs did not pay the countyÂs tourist development tax as authorized by Flor-ida Statute 125.0104 and County Code 17-111. A Âbed taxÂŽ of 5 cents per dollar is levied on all Palm Beach County hotel stays for a period of six months or less. ÂThis is great news for our county,ÂŽ said Ms. Gannon, in a prepared state-ment. ÂOur county has realized serious reductions in property values, which have impacted the amount of revenues collected and services provided to our citizens.ÂŽ Revenue derived from bed tax collections is used to promote Palm Beach County tourism, and fund cultural pro-grams and beach restoration. Tourism is a major industry of the county and Florida. The settlement is not an admission of liability by the OTCs that they are subject to the bed tax. If the Florida legislature does not pass legislation by 2014, litigation by Ms. Gannon against the OTCÂs regard-ing their liability for the bed tax may begin again. Central to the dispute over OTC bed tax payment is the issue of how OTCs calculate state and local hotel bed taxes. The commission model is when a guest pays the retail room rate to the hotel, and the hotel pays a commission for bookings secured to OTCs. The bed tax is calculated on the retail room rate and has the same taxes paid as rooms sold directly by hotels. The hotel remits the bed tax on the full retail amount to the tax collector. Ms. GannonÂs legal team includes Palm Beach County attorneys Jeff Lig-gio, Lou Silber and John Romano. Mr. Liggio, lead attorney for Ms. Gannon, said in the statement, ÂThis litiga-tion in Palm Beach County is similar to litigation against the OTCs elsewhere in Florida and throughout the nation.ÂŽ Numerous other counties in Florida have filed suits, including Broward, Flagler, Leon, Manatee, Pinellas, Polk, Nassau, St. Johns, Alachua, Escambia, Charlotte, Hillsborough, Pasco and Volusia. Q Tax collector Gannon settles bed tax dispute with travel firms The Responsible Jewellery Council announced that Hamilton Jewel-ers, the third-generation fine jeweler, has achieved certification meeting the ethical, human rights, social and envi-ronmental standards as established by the RJCÂs Member Certification System. Hamilton is exceptional in this accom-plishment as being the first family-owned jeweler to achieve this certifica-tion. ÂRJC warmly congratulates Hamilton Jewelers on its certification. The successful verification assessment was conducted by UL Responsible Sourc-ing, one of the independent third-party auditing firms accredited to the RJCÂs Member Certification System,ÂŽ said Michael Rae, RJCÂs chief executive offi-cer, in a prepared statement. Hank Siegel, HamiltonÂs resident and CEO said, ÂAs we begin to celebrate our centennial year in 2012, Hamilton is extremely proud of our certification by the RJC, and additionally honored to be the first independent family-owned retailer to be certified. Our firm and my family have long embraced our ethical and social responsibilities to serve our communities and industry, and are deeply appreciative of the RJCÂs activities to promote such practices and extend them throughout the entire sup-ply chain. We encourage all fine jewelry retailers, large and small, to consider RJC certification.ÂŽ Founded in 1912 and celebrating its centennial year, Hamilton serves cli-ents in both the New Jersey and Palm Beach communities as well as a nation-al and international clientele. Hamil-ton has been a longtime supporter of many important efforts to sustain social responsibility in its business as well as the fine jewelry industry. Including partnership with the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, Jewelers of America, American Gem Society and the Diamond Trading Co., Hamilton takes this commitment to the environ-ment, human rights and the planet seri-ously. The company also carefully monitors its carbon footprint. Through such measures as energy efficient lighting and power in stores, printing media and collateral materi-als on recycled paper, OSHA-compliant waste disposal, and more, Hamilton continually improves environmental policies. Hamilton is additionally recognized in the fine jewelry industry as a leader in employee training and education, having developed extensive in-house programs for the advancement and edu-cation of its employees. Hamilton Jewelers was an early adopter of enforcing The Kimberly Pro-cess and supports the United NationsÂ efforts to stop the sales of diamonds from any country where rebel forces use diamonds to finance acts of war and terror. Hamilton is also a member in good standing of The Fair Labor Association, supporting the organizationÂs mission to protect workersÂ rights and improve working conditions worldwide.

A GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRYREAL ESTATE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 A22 PALM BEACH GARDENS FLORIDA WEEKLY This award-winning custom-built Mediterranean estate is situated on almost an acre of land overlooking the 7th hole of the exclusive Old Palm Golf Club. Offering 9,250 square feet of living space, this Mediterranean design has elegant and traditional interior archi-tecture. The home at 11724 Cardena Court, in Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, was built in 2008 by Purucker & Marrano Custom Homes. The architectural design is by Randal Stofft and the interior design by Rog-ers Design Group. Through the pecky cypress double-door entry is a two-sto-ry foyer, with walls covered in antique and glazed panels, carefully scaled to add architectural significance to the vast space. Hand-fauxed columns and a direct view through to the elegant for-mal living room add to the view of the fountains and oversized resort-style swimming pool, seen directly through the impact-resistant wooden French doors. Archways lead to the formal dining room and powder room, covered in green octagonal onyx mosaics. An oversized chefÂs kitchen offers a cherry wood island with seating area and a separate island with additional seating. A butlerÂs pantry offers a built-in cof-fee system, warming drawer, beverage center and under-counter wine cooler. Kitchen features include two Fischer Paykel dishwashers (pull-out drawer systems) vegetable sink, microwave drawer and two storage pantries. The kitchen leads directly to an oversized breakfast nook and a comfortable fam-ily room that offers custom built-ins, mahogany ceiling detail and pocketing sliders Â„ all overlooking the outdoor living area and swimming pool. In the formal living room, the glazed woodwork continues as wainscoting, crown molding and casing add detail to an elegant retreat. Lady onyx sur-rounds the fireplace inspiring the opal-escent colors of this room and is com-plemented by custom-designed and built-in bookshelves and storage. Off the living room is a custom-designed office. The master suite features his-and-hers baths and closets, on either side of the suite. ÂHerÂŽ bath is adjacent to the sitting area and offers marble of Rossa Toscano and Rossa Asiago, com-plemented by rare White Onyx creat-ing a fabulous floor inlay. ÂHisÂŽ bath has earth tones and a spacious shower offering Grohe fixtures, a temperature-controlled system with head and body spray system. The outdoor living space is a 22-by32-square-foot area with a stone fireplace and a built-in flat screen TV above. The summer kitchen was designed with a barbecue, refrigera-tor, freezer and a trash with recycling pullout. Neutral marble pavers cover the floor and the ceiling is the ulti-mate focal point with a pecky cypress boxed-beam configuration. To the side of the outdoor living area is an over-sized swimming pool with a spa and a pergola and just steps away is a private putting green. Upstairs, the estate offers a full loft area with balcony views to the foyer, three full bedrooms with professionally designed baths and separate balconies, and an office/breakfast area where guests will feel welcome and children can finish homework. The home offers a home generator, a lighting/audio/security system throughout, impact-resistant wood windows and doors and a carbon filtration system. Old Palm Golf Club is an exclusive gated community that offers champion-ship golf, social activities and ameni-ties, a swimming pool, exercise facility, private spa services and a private wine room for entertaining. Fite Shavell & Associates lists the home; its price is $6,750,000, fully furnished and with a full equity golf membership.

MacArthur Beach State Park: the cabbage palms, the pigeon plums, the ropy vines, the music. That twangy, heartfelt music, so redolent of Old Florida.

Well, maybe one thing: eating dinner alone in a restaurant. You donÂt have anyone to talk to, anyone to share your fries with, anyone who might get your back if thereÂs a fight. On a Tuesday night I stopped at a local cafeteria. I was in between work and an evening event and I needed a bite of dinner to make it through the night. I ordered a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich Â„ the saddest dinner I can imagine Â„ and took a seat at a back table. A few minutes later, a couple took the table in front of me. The woman was petite, shorter than me, but the man was the biggest man IÂve seen in a long time. He had broad shoulders, wide hips and a big gut that spilled over his waist so that he could barely squeeze between the table and chair. As he sat, he popped the lid off a bottle of tea. ÂThis is good sweet tea.ÂŽ ÂIt sure is,ÂŽ the woman said. ÂYou donÂt find good sweet tea in a place like this.ÂŽ The couple talked as I worked through my sandwich and watched an ambulance pull into the hospital across the street. ÂIÂm at this party last Saturday night,ÂŽ the woman was saying. ÂYou know the one?ÂŽ ÂMmm-hmm,ÂŽ the man managed around a mouthful of burger. ÂWell, Sandra says to me, ÂSay hello to your man for me.Â You believe that?ÂŽ He took another bite.ÂDisrespecting me,ÂŽ the woman said. ÂThatÂs what she was doing. You donÂt ask about another womanÂs man.ÂŽ ÂMmm-hmm.ÂŽÂSo you know what I did?ÂŽThe man took a sip of his sweet tea. ÂWhatÂd you do?ÂŽ ÂI popped her. One, two, three, four.ÂŽThe woman punched the air as she counted, and in my seat I winced. ÂThatÂs right,ÂŽ she said. ÂNobody better mess with my man.ÂŽ I swallowed hard and looked at my tray as the man lumbered out of his seat. ÂIÂm going to the bathroom,ÂŽ he said.When he came back, the woman had cleared their trays. ÂWhereÂs my sweet tea?ÂŽ he said.ÂI threw it away,ÂŽ the woman said. ÂSorry, baby. Let me get you another one.ÂŽ The woman headed for the cash register and I folded my sandwich wrapper. ÂCan you believe that?ÂŽ the man said. To me? I glanced in his direction. He stared back. To me. ÂThrew away my sweet tea,ÂŽ he said. ÂWhat was she thinking?ÂŽ I looked at the folded wrapper, a stack of napkins, the salt spilled on the table. ÂWaste of money,ÂŽ the man said in my direction. The woman came back across the cafeteria, and I turned toward the hospital. She set the tea on the table in front of the man and gave me a probing look. I felt her fist flexing. I stared out the win-dow as if IÂd never seen anything so fascinating, as if IÂd never dare look across the tables, as if IÂd never think about talking to her man.

Music on the Plaza Â… itÂs a heart full of soul. Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome This deal comes from a team-of-four match. At the first table, South wound up in six clubs doubled after North had opened with a weak two-heart bid. West led the queen of spades, on which declarer played low from dummy. East followed with the deuce, in effect asking his partner to stop playing the suit. (Had East wanted another spade lead, he would have played a higher spade.) But West, ignoring his partnerÂs request that he shift to another suit, continued with a spade. For declarer, this was manna from heaven. He ruffed the spade, cashed the ace of clubs, led a heart to dum-myÂs king, returned the ten of clubs to his jack, drew EastÂs last trump and claimed the rest of the tricks. WestÂs failure to lead a diamond at trick two, the obvious shift, allowed declarer to score 1,090 points instead of losing 100. The deal demonstrates the importance of partnership cooperation on defense. Perhaps West was constitu-tionally unable to bring himself to lead away from the king of diamonds at trick two and decided instead to make the ÂsafeÂŽ lead of another spade. But, as later events proved, the spade con-tinuation was not really safe. Oddly enough, WestÂs mistake was only a small part of a double disaster for his team. At the other table, his team-mates, sitting North-South, allowed their opponents to play six spades doubled, making with an overtrick, for a score of 1,860 points! Declarer ruffed SouthÂs king-of-clubs lead in dummy, finessed the queen of spades and easily took the rest of the tricks. The successful team thus gained 2,950 points on this one deal! Q CONTRACT BRIDGE BY STEVE BECKER It takes two to tango
B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 16-22, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYcertainly about art, but itÂs also about, I think, parents and children, in a way, indirectly. ItÂs about mentors and men-tees, or apprentices. ItÂs about thinking about what your life has been and what it will be. The play talks a lot about the past, the present and the future.ÂŽ The present in this play? ItÂs in 1958-Â59, and Rothko is struggling to complete the larg-est commission ever in modern art Â„ a group of murals for the restaurant at the Four Seasons. He gives orders to Ken, his young assis-tant, who challenges the masterÂs theories. That tension is the crux of the playÂs action. It also offers insights into the modern masterÂs thinking. ÂI think that itÂs really Â„ something that Rothko says early on to Ken Â„ the father must banish the father Â„ respect him but kill him,ÂŽ Mr. Jacob says. ÂThatÂs certainly a mythic pattern and something that is in play in the play, that Ken grows up over the course of the play, and begins a sort of reveren-tial relationship with Rothko, a sort of apprentice relationship with Rothko, and then as he finds his artistic sea legs and his own sense of himself as a young man, he becomes far more rebel-lious and takes ownership of his own ideas and his own place, which Rothko recognizes and eventually comes to peace with. I find that arc in the play to be really beautiful and universal as well.ÂŽ Actor Mark Zeisler, who portrays Rothko, also sees the play that way. ÂItÂs a big play about big people and John Logan really reveals these guys in all of their complexity, their warts and endearing qualities and doesnÂt pull back in any way. These are not people who are presented to be apologized for. ItÂs exciting because that type of writ-ing is not seen as much as one would like to see it these days,ÂŽ he says. Mr. Zeisler has been reading up on the artist, including James BreslinÂs monumental ÂMark Rothko: A Biogra-phy.ÂŽ He learned a thing or two as he read the book. ÂIt was not a good idea to pick a fight with him for any reason. At the same time, he was a teacher for almost 30 years and was extraordinarily patient and kind and loyal. His letters, which came out, are so touching in their gentleness, but at the same time, he was fiercely protective of those friends, certainly of his work and his family. He was a lion in that regard,ÂŽ Mr. Zeisler says. Or maybe more of a shark. Playing off of a character like that has its chal-lenges. ÂItÂs terrifying sometimes,ÂŽ says JD Taylor, who plays the callow Ken. ÂItÂs great. I think the character Ken in the play, he arrives in a little deeper water than heÂs ready for at first, but he has to swim with the sharks, and so heÂs gotta keep up, and Rothko definitely pushes him, and as the play goes on, Ken learns how to push back. I think thatÂs the most beautiful thing. I think Ken is really there in the play to let Rothko live completely and sometimes that means letting him speak and some-times that means calling him out.ÂŽ That is part of the charactersÂ evolution. ÂThey happen to be where they are in their lives. They start one place and they end up in a much different place because of each other,ÂŽ Mr. Zeisler says. And itÂs that change that helps the characters, and the play, transcend time. ÂJohn, heÂs so smart. He talks about those things in the play, that Rothko in the play and, IÂd imagine, the actual Rothko, had a real aversion to things that were simply of the moment,ÂŽ says Mr. Jacob. ÂHeÂs not entirely accurate in the play to some comic advantage in his assessment of the pop art move-ment thatÂs just coming up at the time of the play of (Andy) Warhol and (Rob-ert) Rauschenberg and (Roy) Lichten-stein. I think that the ideas of this play are not specific to today in any particu-lar way. They are ideas that will exist forever.ÂŽ At the same time, the play is grounded in the mid-20th century. ÂPerhaps we look at the Â50s as being sort of a placid, prosperous, very conservative time in our history, and I suppose to some extent thatÂs true,ÂŽ Mr. Jacob says. People Âwere seek-ing some normalcy after World War II, but itÂs very interesting to that that this play, which takes place in 1958-59, we now know there was a kind of pressure-build of forces at work under the surface of that that exploded, well, perhaps around 1963, letÂs see, not only with the Kennedy assassination, but with a cultural explosion that took off, so this is a kind of simmering period perhaps where we didnÂt necessarily see the future but obviously the foun-dations of that must have been laid in our society and cultural groundwork.ÂŽ Regardless of that, ÂRedÂŽ offers its two stars a chance to shine. ÂIÂve done a number of two-character plays and I think the thing that is so exciting about this particular form is that youÂre getting in the car with the audience and closing the door and starting on a little ride,ÂŽ says Mr. Zeisler. ÂBut thereÂs no getting out of the car, thereÂs no rest stops, thereÂs no stopping for coffee, you just go, and itÂs exhilarating.ÂŽ Q Â“REDÂ”From page B1 >>What: Â“RedÂ” >>When: Through Feb. 26.

Willie Allen, with his big voice and his harmonica, had already joined them, and then, about a year ago, Stan Krieger, with the beautiful butterfly -inlay banjo that he made himself. ÂWe are the best bargain in town,ÂŽ Gerry Axelrod says, a couple of weeks after a park performance. ItÂs a Sat-urday afternoon, and the group is rehearsing in the living room of the AndersonsÂ Lake Park home. ÂYou pay $4 per car to get into the park and you get us. You donÂt even have to hide someone in the trunk.ÂŽ Willie Allen grins. ÂDid you ever do that?ÂŽ he says. ÂTo get into the drive-in movies?ÂŽ ÂSure.ÂŽ Both men laugh. Everything at these rehearsals Â„ the music, the banter Â„ becomes a riff.ÂShe took all the love that a poor boy could give her And left me to die like a fox on the run.ÂŽRewards of an audienceThe park appearances pay nothing. Nothing, that is, aside from satisfac-tion, enjoyment, the reward of an appreciative audience, feet tapping in time, there in the semicircle amphithe-ater behind the parkÂs Nature Center and gift shop. Conch Stomp would like to add a bit of revenue to the mix, but finding venues that offer it, well, thatÂs the trick. TheyÂve played a couple of gigs at Mrs. SmokeyÂs Bar-B-Q on Northlake Boulevard Â„ a fundraiser, most recently, for a West Palm Beach veterans group Â„ but that was gratis. They havenÂt really done much self-marketing yet. Right now, itÂs not the most important thing. The most impor-tant thing is making music.ÂDown the road, down the road, I got a little girl down the road . .ÂŽ Kentucky-born Joyce Anderson had never even heard of bluegrass until she moved to Florida, back in Â62, to teach firstand second grades in Jupiter, and met her now-husband John. She took mandolin lessons, later switched to fid-dle; he has never strayed from guitar. They could always find a park to play in, and people who enjoyed the music. Willie Allen met them in a park a while back Â„ two years ago, maybe three Â„ and they asked if heÂd be inter-ested in forming the band. He jotted down their address, showed up the next Saturday to rehearse and, as he says, ÂThat was it.ÂŽ His full name is William Allen Armfield, the shorter version merely a nom-de-stage. ÂThe fact that it reminds some people of Willie Nelson is delib-erate,ÂŽ he says, and grins. He was 10 when an uncle bought his older sis-ter a guitar but balked at buying two because, ÂHe didnÂt want to spend the money for another one; I was too young,ÂŽ Mr. Allen says, Âso he got me a harmonica. You shouldaÂ heard it 20 years ago. I couldaÂ broke glass.ÂŽ If he tried now, at 61 Â„ he calls himself Âthe baby of the bunchÂŽ Â„ he probably could at least crack it.Careers in correctionsThe recession of 1982 brought him to Florida from Kokomo, Ind. The day he arrived, he opened a newspaper and found six pages of job listings. Employ-ment quickly followed. First, briefly, as a bouncer, then construction work. Recently, after an unemployed stretch, he took a job at the South Miami Reception Center, teaching inmates to train service dogs. His wife, Patty, does the same at a correctional facility in Pahokee. In the AndersonÂs living room, on this recent Saturday, Stan Krieger sets a small recorder down on the floor. ItÂd be a good idea, they all agree, to hear how they sound. Someone sug-gests ÂLet Me Be Your Salty DogÂŽ or ÂSleepy-Eyed John,ÂŽ but no one can find the music for that one. How about the Bill Monroe number about the racetrack, ÂRun Molly, RunÂŽ? The conversation turns to style: whether to repeat a last chorus twice or fash-ion another ending, how many verses to sing, whether to include the one Â„ Gerry Axelrod finds it a downer Â„ about the horse dying, about the coffin. The room Â„ with its woven baskets of silk flowers, its hurricane lamps and gilt-framed drawings and the cage that encloses two parakeets Â„ does not suggest bluegrass, but its infectious rhythms fill the space. ÂWant to do something we know the words to?ÂŽ Gerry Axelrod suggests, a line that lands the desired laughs. The group slides into a sure winner, vocals by Mr. Axelrod and the Andersons:ÂWish that I was on old Rocky Top, Down in the Tennessee hills. AinÂt no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top, AinÂt no telephone bills . .ÂŽThis is a clear parakeet favorite. Little Bird (blue) and Canary Mary (yellow, of course), erupt in a cacoph-ony of chirps. When the song ends, Joyce Anderson jerks a thumb over her shoulder at Willie Allen and teases, ÂWe donÂt let him sing with us Âcause he drowns us out.ÂŽ ÂIt works out fine,ÂŽ Mr. Allen responds. ÂI just donÂt use a micro-phone.ÂŽNew friendsThe rehearsal banter suggests yearslong friendship, but the associations are as new as the group itself. Gerry Axelrod recounts his first meeting with Conch Stomp. HeÂd picked up a man-dolin for $45, took lessons in Jupiter Â„ heÂd played guitar for 40 years, even recorded a couple of albums of kidsÂ songs for Folkways back in the late Â70s, early Â80s Â„ and showed up at an open jam session at the park. Joyce Anderson named a song. ÂI said, ÂWhoÂs gonna sing it?ÂÂŽ recalls Mr. Axelrod, who is vice presi-dent for research and development at SportScanINFO, a retail reporting ser-vice for the sports industry. He smiles at the memory. ÂAnd she said, ÂSing it?Â ThereÂs words?ÂÂŽ There were and he sang them, and now he leads the sing-ing much of the time. The naming of the group was as informal, as impromptu, as they are. ÂWell,ÂŽ says Joyce Anderson, seeming to search for the logic of it. ÂJohn and I used to play at this little conch-y place, this guyÂs house, and he called it the Conch House and everything there was conch-something.ÂŽ She shrugs. Just that simple. Stan Krieger was last to join. He heard his first bluegrass back in Â73 and taught himself to play banjo, built the b utterfly b anjo three years later. A mechanical engineer Â„ he moved to West Palm Beach after college and worked for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Â„ heÂs always been a do-it-himself guy, a man good enough with his hands to build a 48-foot live-aboard ketch, on which he set sail for the Bahamas in the mid Â70s. Later on, he put the banjo into storage and switched to blues gui-tar. ÂAbout three years ago, I got the banjo out of storage and turned back to bluegrass,ÂŽ he writes in an email; thereÂs no phone on the ketch. ÂI sat in with Joyce and the gang at MacArthur Park one Sunday and practiced with them four-five months.ÂŽ He dropped out for a while because, as he says, Âthey didnÂt play enough bluegrass songs.ÂŽ (Grateful Dead numbers often work their way into performances.) ÂIÂve adjusted and actually like this now. I can get up and stretch while they do songs I donÂt participate in.ÂŽ And, while they donÂt pretend to be Flatt and Scruggs or the Country Gen-tlemen Â„ ÂSometimes, we step on each otherÂs toes,ÂŽ Joyce Anderson says, and laughs Â„ they have a sound and a spir-it and a look all their own, a combina-tion that summons the lovers of blue-grass. As regular as the tides, at 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of every month at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, the years melt away and a flash of Old Florida glimmers there amid the palms and the vines and the music. Q BLUEGRASSFrom page B1

FOLLOW US. A variety of exhibitions Â„ from paintings to underwater photography to sculptural ceramics Â„ opens at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum on Feb. 16. Immense hyper-realistic paintings of sunsets and florals by JB Berkow are paired with color-field abstract paint-ings by Rita Shapiro, while in another gallery wildlife and underwater photographer Ruth Pet-zold features photo-graphs taken around the globe from pole to pole. Nationally renowned ceramic artist and sculptor Nick RameyÂs work will be on display, and the artist also will present a workshop on Feb. 24 and 25. People who are familiar with Ms. BerkowÂs work are struck by her stun-ning hyper-realism. In fact, her work appears so real that art critics have dubbed it Âart you can live in.ÂŽ Oddly enough, Ms. Berkow does not consider herself a realist painter. Instead, she thinks of herself as Âan artist stringing together abstractions.ÂŽ She feels this way because of the way she composes her work. ÂI start in the upper left-hand side of the canvas. As I move across and down, I finish one seg-ment at a time until the painting is done and the illusion of realism is complete,ÂŽ says Ms. Berkow, in a statement. ÂMy concerns are about line, shape, color, positive and negative space and the push and pull of both, all the same exact elements with which abstract painters are concerned.ÂŽ Aware that people were not seeing her work the way she did, she decided to produce a 20-minute documentary on the topic titled, ÂRealism: A String-ing Together of Abstractions.ÂŽ Ms. Petzold has had a lifelong passion for nature and photography, which became her lifeÂs work. Since getting her first camera at age 7, she has devot-ed herself to photographing nature and wildlife above and below the water. From wildlife in the wilds of Africa, Antarctica and the Arctic, to the under-sea world of the Pacific Rim countries and the Caribbean, she has pursued the beauties of nature on all seven conti-nents and in most of the global seas and oceans. Her passionate love of the natural world has taken her to exotic and remote parts of the world in pur-suit of her subject matter Â„ 11 times to the African continent, 10 times to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, and six times to Indonesia, just to mention a few of her photographic excursions. In the exhibition, ÂSea Creatures, Above and Below,ÂŽ are photographs (some as large as 5 feet wide) from her explorations that include polar bears, rare leafy sea dragons, whales, as well as a pygmy seahorse the size of oneÂs pinky fingernail. Although Ms. Petzold suffered a leg amputation years ago, it has not stopped her from continuing to do underwater photography and travel the world in search of great photo-graphs. As a wildlife conservationist, she is a member of the ExplorerÂs Club. Educational components to the exhibition include wall panels with descrip-tions of the sea creatures, character-istics and geography, and on March 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Ms. Petzold will be in the museum to address questions and will deliver a lecture on her pho-tography and expe-riences beginning at 6:15 p.m. Among other accomplishments in the ceramics field, Nick Ramey has just been awarded a five-year residency at Baltimore Clayworks and was part of the study abroad program in China. Mr. Ramey has a bachelor of fine arts degree from Indiana University and a master of fine arts degree from South-ern Illinois University Edwardsville. During graduate school, he developed an interest in using representational imagery that eventually led to a switch in focus from functional pottery to figu-rative sculpture. ÂIt is the journey of life and the process of growing up that most influences this work,ÂŽ Mr. Ramey said. ÂI use clay as the primary medium in this work but also include many mixed media ele-ments, including found objects, which I believe will hopefully trigger a memory or a sense of the past within the individual viewer. Most impor-tantly, I want my sculptures to tell a story, one that might be different for each viewer, depending on their own per-sonal history and life experiences.ÂŽ In his two-day workshop on Feb. 24 and 25, he will demonstrate wheel-thrown and figurative sculpture pro-cesses, covering a variety of techniques, including altered forms, slip-cast assemblage, underglaze/glaze and decal application. Presentations feature non-traditional building and application techniques to invoke a spark of nostal-gia, as well as influences from abroad.

Not pictured are Andrea Cleveland, Mary Imle, Ca thy Helowicz and Rosalie Roush. ++ Is it worth $10? NoHeÂs played cops, criminals, civil rights leaders and heroes. But letÂs be hon-est: Our favorite Denzel Washington is badass Denzel Washington. Like when heÂs a drug lord in ÂAmerican Gangster,ÂŽ or winning an Oscar for playing a corrupt detective in ÂTraining Day.ÂŽ The trailers for ÂSafe HouseÂŽ promise more badass Denzel, and that alone is rea-son to be excited. Unfortu-nately, director Daniel Espi-nosa never makes it clear whether DenzelÂs character, Tobin Frost, is good or bad. Add to that some predictable twists, poorly shot action/fight scenes and a halfheart-ed love story, and you have a movie thatÂs a total mess. Frost is a former CIA agent who went rogue nine years ago and now possesses a microchip with informa-tion thatÂs very important to CIA brass. For no discern-ible reason, the story is set in Cape Town, South Africa, which is where Frost inex-plicably (really Â„ itÂs never explained) turns himself in to the American consulate. HeÂs taken into custody and sent to a safe house kept by Matt Weston (Ryan Reyn-olds), an ambitious young man with a hot girlfriend (Nora Arnezeder) whom we immediately know Weston will later risk his life to protect. When he finally does, we donÂt care. Weston wants a more ÂactiveÂŽ assignment post, citing the fact that nothing happens in Cape Town. Be careful what you wish for, Matt. Moments after Frost arrives, the house is attacked, and Frost and Weston find themselves stuck togeth-er with different priorities. Frost plays with WestonÂs emotions, but with Wash-ington unable to convey FrostÂs motives, itÂs impossible to know if Frost is evil or trying to help Weston. Otherwise Washington and Reynolds are fine, and the supporting cast that includes Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga and Brendan Gleeson adds a touch of class to the embarrassingly simplistic story. For example: At one point, Weston loses Frost and needs to find him. Suddenly, he recalls Frost earlier turning a car in the direction of a nearby village and ÂViola!ÂŽ Weston finds him. Are you kidding me? Third-graders could come up with some-thing more interesting (sorry, second-graders). And then there are the lame action sequences. They occur at random and for no clear reason. Frost is tortured during his interrogation after he says heÂll cooperate. During an escape scene, Weston speeds through a crowded street fair. During fight scenes, itÂs impossible to know who has the upper hand because the action is edited so fast that you canÂt tell whatÂs going on. To top it off, the ending is abrupt and leaves you wondering who the true good guys and bad guys are. A little ambigu-ity is one thing, but to never reveal the motivations of main characters is a disas-trously stupid decision that unhinges everything else ÂSafe HouseÂŽ does well. Which isnÂt much. Q Journey 2: The Myste-rious Island ++ (Dwayne Johnson, Josh Hutcherson, Michael Caine) Punk teenager Sean (Hutcherson) and his motherÂs (Kristin Davis) boyfriend (Johnson) search for SeanÂs grandfather (Caine) on a lost island. ItÂs loosely based on the Jules Verne novel, and book lovers will smile at the liberties taken with classic literature. But the act-ing, dialog, story and visual effects are nothing to write home about. Rated PG.The Woman in Black +++ (Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer) A London lawyer (Radcliffe) out to prove himself takes a job in the English countryside searching for a dead womanÂs will. Little does he know her house is haunted. Radcliffe is impressive in his first big non-Harry Potter role, and there are some quality scares along the way. Rated PG-13. Man On A Ledge +++ (Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell) An escaped convict (Worthing-ton) threatens to jump from a New York City high rise in an effort to prove his innocence. There are many layers to the film, each of which is skillfully and gradu-ally unveiled in a tense and exciting way that makes for a fun night out at the mov-ies. Rated PG-13.

Music on the Plaza Â… itÂs a heart full of soul. Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome You may not have recognized the new moustache or the renewed confidence in his playing, but if you are not familiar with rising PGA Tour star Johnson Wag-ner, you should be now. The member of the renowned Mayacoo Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach recently won the Sony Open in Hawaii. His third career PGA Tour victory overall, the win earned him a trip to the Masters in April and a guaranteed visit back to Hawaii in 2013 to defend his title. While spending the season in South Florida, Wagner finds Mayacoo to be an excellent course to prepare for tourna-ment play. ÂMayacoo is a unique place where I can practice for a major comfortably alongside the casual golfer. Even though we are at different levels, we both enjoy the courseÂs excitement and chal-lenge,ÂŽ said Mr. Wagner. ÂIÂm extremely impressed by the camaraderie and sin-cerity of the members and humbled by how they have always embraced me and follow my career.ÂŽ Mayacoo also holds some great events of its own. Currently host to The Honda Classic Qualifier, it has also been the venue for the South Florida PGA Club Pro Championship, Palm Beach Coun-ty Club Championship, U.S. Amateur, Mid Amateur and State Open qualifiers. You never know who youÂll see playing or practicing out on the immaculate greens. The upcoming Honda Classic Qualifier is a Âfour-spotterÂŽ tournament offer-ing the top four finishers among the 120-player field an opportunity to make it to the big show. The competitors include several full-time PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour players. Mayacoo was originally developed in 1972 when a group of young Palm Beach business leaders teamed up with Jack Nicklaus and Desmond Muirhead to create a design unlike most typical Florida courses. The design requires accuracy (and sometimes length) off the tees, and high-trajectory iron play from the fairways into the greens. Mr. Nicklaus continually looked for ways to make the links a fair test, which was an effort appreciated by hard-core players and those on the PGA Tour. His ratio-nale was that no course should penal-ize a golfer for a good shot, nor should it force him to lay up. ItÂs that type of thinking which led to a Golf Digest ÂTop 100ÂŽ ranking, putting Mayacoo into the blue-chip list of golf courses over its 40-year history. Q Mayacoo member wins first PGA Tour event of 2012 BY MINDY GOLDBERGSpecial to Florida Weekly ÂThe Golf ExchangeÂŽ presented by The Honda Classic golf and sports talk show, owned and operated by IGP Sports & Entertainment Group, has announced that Craig Dolch has joined Host Russ Evans on South FloridaÂs only golf talk and sports radio show.

But it has not always been celebrated on that day. George WashingtonÂs birthday, Feb. 22, was first celebrated as a federal holiday in 1880. It was moved to the third Monday in February in 1971 as part of a law that made many holidays fall on Mondays so citizens could enjoy a long weekend. In 1951 there had been an attempt to change the holiday to Presidents Day to honor all presidents, not just George Washington, but for years there were arguments about when to schedule it, what to name it and whom to honor. In the mid-1980s, the use of the term ÂPresidents DayÂŽ instead of ÂWashing-tonÂs BirthdayÂŽ spread across the country, spurred by stores advertising sales. While some states honor various presidents, usu-ally those from the state, on the holiday, George Washington is part of all of the cel-ebrations. When Washington died, the pub-lic bought Staffordshire figurines picturing him, textiles with pictures of him ascending to heaven and many memorial medals and plates. Photographs did not exist, so these souvenirs, along with oil paintings, show how he looked. Many of the souvenirs are inaccurate representations of Washington, but theyÂre of interest to collectors today. Q: I recently acquired an antique buffet made in a traditional style. A name-plate in a drawer says ÂJoerns Bros. Furniture Co., Stevens Point, Wis.ÂŽ Please tell me something about the maker and what the piece might be worth. A: Brothers Charles, Paul and Frederick Joerns founded their furniture manufacturing com-pany in St. Paul, Minn., in 1898. Within a few years, the company moved to Sheboygan, Wis., a cen-ter of furniture-making at the time. After a fire at the Sheboygan plant, Joerns Broth-ers Furniture Co. moved again in 1927, this time to Stevens Point. Joerns made high-quality bedroom and din-ing-room sets until the late 1950s, when new manage-ment changed the compa-nyÂs focus to less-expensive furniture. When that busi-ness model failed, the com-pany began making furni-ture for nursing homes and has thrived in the health-care business ever since. Your buffet was made after Joerns moved to Stevens Point in 1927, so it is not technically an ÂantiqueÂŽ because it is not 100 years old. And its traditional style probably indicates that it dates from no later than 1940. But it is a good solid piece of furniture. If itÂs in excellent condition, you might get several hundred dollars for it. Q: I have two matching framed prints, one with a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and one with a portrait of George Washington. The first one has a small metal plaque that says ÂAbraham Lincoln by George P.A. Healy The White House Collection from The President and Mrs. Nixon Christmas 1971.ÂŽ The George Washington print has a similar plaque and is dated Christmas 1969. Do you know anything about these? A: President Richard Nixon and his wife gave prints of famous presi-dential portraits to White House staff members as Christmas gifts each year he was in office. Each print was in a red presentation folder and included a parchment sheet with an explana-tion of the portrait, a ribbon and an embossed presidential seal. Hall-mark made 3,500 copies of Gilbert StuartÂs portrait of Washington for the 1969 gift. A print of JeffersonÂs portrait was given in 1970, Lincoln in 1971, Theodore Roosevelt in 1972 and James Monroe in 1973. Q: I have a Mary Marvel wristwatch that dates back to 1948. My parents had this watch for sale in their jewelry store in Ber-lin, Wis. It still keeps time. IÂd like to know what itÂs worth. A: The character Mary Marvel first appeared in a Captain Marvel Adventures comic book published by Fawcett Publica-tions in 1942. She was Captain MarvelÂs sister and possessed the same powers as her brother. Mary Marvel had her own series of comic books from 1945 until 1948. She continued to appear in other Marvel comics published by Fawcett until 1954. Mary Marvel wristwatches came with dif-ferent colored bands and in different boxes. We have seen them with red, green, blue and black bands. The earliest boxes had a Mary Marvel cover pasted over the original Captain Marvel cover. Value of your wrist-watch is $200 to $300. Tip: Do not wash or rinse gold-decorated glass with very hot water or strong soap. It will remove some of the gold. Q Â„ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

The Norton Museum of Art is presenting ÂBIJOUX!,ÂŽ a contemporary art jewelry fundraiser, offering the public the chance to purchase one-of-a-kind contemporary art jewelry pieces directly from their cre-ators. At least two dozen of the more than 40 interna-tional artists represented at BIJOUX! are expected to attend the event, which is open to the public during regular museum hours Â„ with regular admission Â„ March 1Â…4. BIJOUX! also includes a Feb. 28 dinner for patrons and artists at a private home, and a Feb. 29 pre-view cocktail party at the museum. Proceeds from BIJOUX! benefit the NortonÂs exhibition and education pro-grams. With the goal of Âintroducing the community to the best of the inter-national art jewelry world,ÂŽ BIJOUX! Chair Donna Schneier visited one of the worldÂs preeminent art jewelry fairs held annually in Munich, Germany, and traveled Europe researching and reviewing the work of the continentÂs leading art jewelers. The result, Ms. Schneier says, Âis an assembly of promi-nent artists from around the world, who are bringing their work to the Norton. ItÂs a rare opportunity to buy the work directly from the artists.ÂŽ The artists, based in Canada, England, France, Germany, The Nether-lands, Israel, and Japan as well as the U.S. and other countries, work in gold, silver, porcelain, beads, acrylic, glass, iron, steel, diamonds, and other materi-als, Ms. Schneier said. She added that stylistically, their designs range from very conservative to avant garde. Included in the group is Israeli artist Attai Chen, winner of the Munich art fairÂs prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize. Other notables from the art jewelry world who will be represented at BIJOUX! include Donna Brennan, Nirit Dekel, Karina Guevin, Gaetano Pesce and Kim Rawdin. ÂI tried to choose artists who would show well here,ÂŽ Ms. Schneier said, add-ing that BIJOUX! is as much about education as sales. ÂThis is a chance to meet leading art jewelers from all over the world. They are internation-ally acclaimed.ÂŽ She is moderating a panel discussion at 3 p.m. on March 2 at the Museum with artists Ela Bauer, Gloria Lieberman, Suzanne Ramljak and Davira Taragin. A workshop with Nirit Dekel is set for 11 a.m. on March 3. Tickets for the Feb. 29 preview party are $175 per person and $250 per couple. Patron sponsorships are $1,000 per cou-ple and $600 per person, and include the Feb. 28 dinner with the artists and the Feb. 29 preview cocktail party.

Persson has made a $1 million gift in honor of the operaÂs 50th anniversary. Mrs. Persson, of North Palm Beach, has been involved with Palm Beach Opera since 1996 and became a mem-ber of the board of directors in 1999. A known philanthropist for the arts in the community, she provided the Palm Beach Opera with a $500,000 challenge grant during the 2009-2010 season, and was the sponsor of the companyÂs per-formances of BeethovenÂs Symphony No. 9 in 2009 and VerdiÂs Requiem in 2011.

ÂWith her magnanimous support, leadership and vision over the past seasons, Helen Persson has become Palm Beach OperaÂs Guardian Angel,ÂŽ said Daniel Biaggi, general director of the company. ÂHelenÂs deep love and knowledge of opera, as well as her pas-sion to see the arts thrive, has given this community the gift of marvelous symphonic and operatic performances.
