None of that, really.Instead, it boils down to 6-feet 1-inch of blue-eyed Bean Town ball-buster named Rich-ard Blood. Although he quit breathing last week in New York City at the age of 83, introductions are now in order. Professor Blood was and is journalism done right „ the engine in the rocket, the seed in the garden. I learned the craft from Blood two decades ago by running all over his classroom, which started in a cramped, second-floor office above The World RoomŽ at Columbia Universitys School of Journalism. From there, beginning in the morning and ending late afternoon or evening or in the small hours of the following day, his classroom extended to the five boroughs of New York City. I will now convey my education to you in a single column at no extra charge, since I already paid the bill. For $30,000, I got a cute little masters diploma and this, delivered from an immacuCOMMENTARY Th li b l di T h i di roger WILLIAMS rwilliams@floridaweekly.com lately dressed pit bull „ his shoes shined, his trousers and shirt lightly starched, his tie knotted formally under a square jaw, his storm-cloud brows banked over smoldering blue eyes, and all of it crowned in a disciplined cumulus of white hair: Williams, you can write. But good writing is only as good as the reporting. THE REPORTING, Williams. Work on THE REPORTING.Ž Work on the details. Know the facts, the events, the public records, the private behav-ior, the voices „ especially the voices. Listen to what they say, study what they do. It was worth every penny.Here is blue-Blood journalism stripped down, equipped for any technology, every era and all terrain: Employ good storytelling to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfort-able (as Finley Peter Dunne once said). Do it accurately, fairly and stylishly, too, pal. In a timely fashion, please. By 5 p.m. Thanks.Blood championed that notion. Hed been a hard-drinking probably hot-tempered city editor for the New York Daily News for years, even editing Jimmy Breslin (gently, he was fond of noting, which didnt quite square with the evidence at hand). But hed quit all that to marry a former nun and psychologist who saved him, he once told me. Carol. He had three children. I remember this, too: Born and raised in Boston, Blood had boxed in the Navy or the Merchant Marines. But the term is weak. He was a brawler by instinct and temperament with an Irish-Catholic conscience, the compulsion to make things better, a fondness for bright, vibrant women, a respect for tough men with humility, and an appreciation for fine language, fine cuisine and the New York Giants. He also harbored an explosive dislike of bullies, liars and con artists. Always, Blood insisted on doing the right thing, a phrase that only later assumed fashion-able gravity. He picked about 15 students each semester and showed them what that meant. Columbia offered a variety of good classes taught by a variety of exceptional professors. I had a class with Anthony Lewis in First Amendment law. I had a class with Roger Rosenblatt in magazine writing. Roger, this is perfect. There is nothing I can add,Ž Mr. Rosenblatt once wrote on one of my fancy-schmancy little magazine features. Professor Blood, teaching RW1 (Reporting and Writing), never put something that silly on a story. But he did put festive red marks all over it. At the heart of his class, you wrote eight or so sizzlers from the street, and then you worked with him and a few hand-chosen for-mer students, his assistants, to make the stories better. You wandered around Harlem „ and called in to update Blood. You wandered around the Bronx or Crown Heights during a riot. You wandered around the U.N. during a gabfest. You found a pay phone (remember those?) and you called Blood. One assignment required you to sit around night court at 100 Centre Street talking to pros-titutes, cops, drunks, public defenders, pros-ecutors, bail bondsmen, bedraggled families. Another put you on a night shift with a couple of New Yorks finest. When they found a ripe body in a fifth-floor walk-up, they called their shift sergeant. You called Blood. He wanted detail „ what they wore and carried, what they said, what it looked and smelled like, what happened. He wanted the drama up high, he wanted the language to ring like bells. And he wanted it by deadline. If you didnt meet Bloods deadline or his storytelling par, you got a second chance. Blow that, you were out. Thats what he promised. On the last night of his class in the late fall of 1992, a few students were still working feverishly in the newsroom to meet his 8 a.m. deadline. One of his favorites, a cheerful, frecklefaced Boston kid with a Harvard degree, was three stories down at the beginning of the evening. By dawn hed completed two. But the third remained a mess of notes, a few starts and stops, and a hell of a long way from a salvage-able Blood story. I know, because I tried to help him tie it off, all night long. Even together we failed to pin down that final story. We failed to meet the standard of the class.At 9 a.m., Professor Blood called Matt into his office. The young man entered at a near shuffle, pale as a ghost, thin-lipped as a recruit. The rest of us stood in the hallway, mostly mute. Twenty wrenching minutes crawled by. Matt finally opened the door and stepped out. Speechlessly he turned away from us and dis-appeared down the hall. We were never to see him again. It broke everybodys heart, including Professor Bloods. And it characterized an unwaver-ing Blood principle that outraged some admin-istrators, those eyeballing future alumni gifts, no doubt: Stick to the standard. He did. And he did the right thing by all of us. Its called blue-Blood journalism. Promised and delivered. Q Promised and delivered: blue-Blood journalism

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYOPINION First they come for the alcohol, then for the tobacco, then for your sugar. When the day arrives when you have to undergo a background check and endure a three-day waiting period to enter a Dunkin Donuts, you can trace it back to this moment. Namely, the publication in the journal NatureŽ of an article calling for regulating sugar as a health hazard, although stopping far short of all-out prohibitionŽ (that would be too extreme). One of the authors is Robert Lustig of the University of California, San Francis-co, who hopes to be to the consumption of sugary beverages and foods what Wil-liam Wilberforce was to the slave trade. He is not given to understatement. In a video discussion with his co-authors, he says that thanks to sugar and its con-tribution to chronic noncommunicable diseases like heart disease and diabetes, we are in the midst of the biggest public health crisis in the history of the world.Ž Bigger than the bubonic plague that killed off about half the population of Europe in the 14th century? Bigger than the 1918 flu pandemic that killed as many as 50 million people? As soon as Coca-Cola becomes so toxic that it wipes out a large proportion of the worlds population and influences the course of civilization, well then, Lustig has a case. There is a vigorous debate among researchers about how harmful sugar is, and Lustig „ as you might imagine „ takes the dire view. This fuels his push for gentle supply side control strategiesŽ to limit the intake of sugar, including taxation, distribution con-trols, age limits.Ž They muse about zon-ing ordinances to control the number of fast-food outlets and convenience stores in low-income communities, and espe-cially around schools.Ž Ive always thought soda is bad for you, not from studying the data, but because my mom wouldnt let us have it in the house when we were kids. Which set-tled the issue rather nicely „ no taxes, no zoning ordinances. As it turns out, research shows the power of engaged parents. A study published in PediatricsŽ in 2010 found that if children ate dinner with their families, got about 10 hours of sleep a night and watched two hours or less of TV on weeknights, they had a lower risk of obesity. The mindset of the Robert Lustigs of the world is that we cant trust parents or individuals to make sound choices. They dont consider it public health,Ž he scolds in the video, referring to opponents of a government anti-sugar campaign, they consider it personal responsibility.Ž But if what you choose to eat and drink is no longer considered the province of personal responsibility, what is left? If this all seems good for yuks, just wait 10 years. Before its over, the offend-ing food and beverage companies „ the sugar merchants,Ž as a journalist sympathetic to Lustigs case puts it „ could well be as beaten-down as the tobacco companies. The predicate is there for making Little Debbie, despite her wholesome red curls and cheery slo-gan (Unwrap a SmileŽ), into the moral equivalent of a drug pusher. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Watch it! The cupcake cops are comingEight youths, tending their flock of sheep in the snowy fields of Afghani-stan, were exterminated last week by a NATO airstrike. They were in the Najrab district of Kapisa province in eastern Afghanistan. Most were report-edly between the ages of 6 and 14. They had sought shelter near a large boulder, and had built a fire to stay warm. At first, NATO officials claimed they were armed men. The Afghan government condemned the bombing and released photos of some of the victims. By Wednesday, NATO offered, in a press release, deep regret to the families and loved ones of several Afghan youths who died during an air engagement in Kapisa province Feb. 8.Ž Those eight killed were not that different in age from Lance Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca, 20, of North Arlington, N.J. He was killed two days later, while on duty in Afghanistans Helmand province. These nine young, wasted lives will be the latest footnote in the longest war in United States history, a war that is being perpetuated, according to one brave, whistle-blowing U.S. Army officer, through a pattern of overt and substantive deceptionŽ by many of Americas most senior military leaders in Afghanistan.Ž Those words are written by Lt. Col. Danny Davis in his 84-page report, Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Mili-tary Leaders Loss of Integrity Wounds Afghan War Effort.Ž A draft of that report, dated Jan. 27, 2012, was obtained by Rolling Stone magazine. It has not been approved by the U.S. Army Public Affairs office for release, even though Davis writes that its contents are not classified. He has submitted a classified version to members of Congress. Davis, a 17-year Army veteran with four combat tours behind him, spent a year in Afghanistan with the Armys Rapid Equipping Force, traveling more than 9,000 miles to most operational sectors of the U.S. occupation and learn-ing firsthand what the troops said they needed most. In a piece he wrote in Armed Forces Journal (AFJ) titled Truth, lies and Afghanistan,Ž Davis wrote of his experience, What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground.Ž Speaking out is strongly discouraged in the U.S. military, especially against ones superiors. Davis whistle-blowing was picked up by The New York Times and Rolling Stone, whose reporter, Michael Hastings, told me, The fact is that you have a 17-year Army veteran whos done four tours „ two in Afghanistan and two in Iraq „ who has decided to risk his entire career „ he has two and a half more years left before he gets a pension „ because he feels that he has a moral obligation to do so.Ž Davis interviewed more than 250 people „ U.S. military personnel and Afghan nationals „ in his recent year in the war zone. He compared what he learned from them with optimis-tic projections from the likes of David Petraeus, former head of the militarys CENTCOM and of the U.S. military in Afghanistan, and now head of the CIA, who told Congress on March 15, 2011, that the momentum achieved by the Taliban in Afghanistan since 2005 has been arrested in much of the country, and reversed in a number of important areas.Ž In his AFJ piece, Davis wrote, Instead, I witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level ... insurgents con-trolled virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a U.S. or International Security Assistance Force base.Ž His observations concur with the death of Osbrany Montes de Oca, whose girlfriend, Maria Samaniego, told the New York Daily News, He was walking out of the base and he was immediately shot.Ž The number of U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan approaches 2,000, which is about the number of civilians killed there annually. Nic Lee, the director of the independent Afghanistan NGO Safety Office, wrote in his year-end report for 2011, The year was remark-able for being the one in which the US/NATO leadership finally acknowledged the unwinnable nature of its war with the Taliban.Ž Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently remarked, Hopefully by the midto latter part of 2013 well be able to make a transition from a combat role to a training, advise and assist role.Ž Petraeus countered, saying the U.S. remains com-mitted to ending the combat mission by the end of 2014. Meanwhile, images surface of U.S. Marines urinating on Afghan corpses, or posing with a Nazi SS flag, and the drumbeat continues, death by death. Lt. Col Davis wrote, When having to decide whether to continue a war, alter its aims or to close off a campaign that cannot be won at an acceptable price, our senior leaders have an obligation to tell Congress and the American people the unvarnished truth.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America.The Afghan War’s nine lives rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly hhdhf l k f amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly

BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickIf you want a friendly reptilian pet whos easy to care for, your choice is an easy one: You want a bearded dragon. Beardeds are not only tame when handled, but many also seem to enjoy the contact. Even better, theyre suitable for almost any pet lover or family situa-tion „ and a great pet for a responsible child. Bearded dragons enjoy exploring, whether crawling on their owners or around the house. They stick out their tongues to touch new surfaces to deter-mine the temperature and makeup of the area „ a behavior that adds to their appeal. Beardeds live to be about 10 years old and will mature at 18 to 24 inches in length, including the tail. Hatchling beardeds are only about 3 inches in length and look more like a gecko than a giant lizard species. Common color-ings of the bearded are yellow and tan, though they can be found in more vibrant yellow, orange and albino. The bearded dragon name comes from the display the pet puts on when trying to act tough. The puffed-beard display is used only defensively to scare away potential threats. Along with puff-ing out, beardeds also flatten out their bellies to look wider, as well as leave their rather large mouths gaping open to intimidate the potential threat. Beardeds are quite happy to live alone as in the wild, except when in search of mates. If you want more than one, however, theres no downside, since they seem to enjoy the companionship of another of their kind. Female beard-eds can usually be housed with another female or male, but males should not be housed together, due to territorial aggression. Beardeds need human help to maintain their temperature in captivity, using heat lamps or warming pads. They do well in tanks where some areas are cooler and some are warmer „ a range of 85 to 105 degrees by day, dipping into the 70s at night. Youll also need special lighting, since these reptiles need UVB rays to properly absorb dietary calcium. A full-spectrum light should be provided 12 to 14 hours a day most of the year, and 10 to 12 hours in the winter. Omnivores by nature, beardeds enjoy both plants and meat in their diet. Juveniles enjoy a carnivorous diet, while adults become primarily herbivores, enjoying a diet of dark, leafy vegetables and some fruit. All food given to the bearded should be shredded into easy-to-swallow, bite-size pieces. Insects should be given to adult beardeds two to three times per week (mainly crickets), but also mealworms, wax moth larvae and pinkie mice in limited amounts. Beardeds hit sexual maturity between 1 and 2 years of age, when females will start laying eggs, regardless of whether theyve been mated. Veterinary care is minimal for pets who are being properly cared for. After purchase, your bearded should be exam-ined for health and parasites, with treatment for the latter if necessary. After that, annual examinations are rec-ommended, to help your veterinarian understand whats normalŽ for your pet, so treatment can be more targeted if theres a problem.

In fact, records from April 2011 until Septem-ber showed her balance as $4,850. How-ever, in December, Mainland learned that Ms. Torres had made an insurance claim against the driver and settled it for $30,000.

Q Hospitals, of course, are obligated to render emergency care to anyone who needs it, even to undocumented immi-grants and regardless of ability to pay.

A January New York Times report noted that New York City hospi-tals currently house about 300 of those continuing careŽ patients, with many in the five-year-long range and one patient now in his 13th year. (In some states, even, the laws wording permits pop drops,Ž in which adult children leave ailingŽ parents at a hospital when the children decide they need a break.) Q The Force is not with youIn November, Rickie La Touche, 30, was convicted in Englands Preston Crown Court of killing his wife in a rage over her having allegedly destroyed the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker memorabilia that he had collected since childhood. And in January, a judge in Portland, Ore., ordered a 45-day jail sen-tence, plus mental evaluation, for David Canterbury, 33, after he attacked Toys R Us customers with a lightsaber in each hand. And in February in Brooklyn, N.Y., Flynn Michael expanded his search for his stolen $400 custom-made lightsaber. I guess thats the joke,Ž said Michael, self-pityingly. Some Jedi I turned out to be.Ž Q The Jesus and Mary World Tour Recent Public Appearances of Jesus and/or the Virgin Mary: Wiltshire, Eng-land, June (Jesus in candle wax dripping from a churchs pulpit).

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY The Honda Classic turns 40 this year. And Jack Nicklaus, who turned 71 in January, is maturing along with the Classic, which has its origins in Jackie Gleasons Inverrary Classic. Mr. Nicklaus played that original 1972 tournament and lost to Tom Weis-kopf, who sank a 30-foot putt on the 71st hole to win the first tournament and $52,000. He shot 278, 10-under-par, to defeat Mr. Nicklaus by one stroke. That is now part of history, as are Mr. Nicklaus three back-to-back victo-ries in 1976, 77 and 78. The tournament became known as The Honda Classic in 1983 and has moved north. Since 2003, it has been played at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. Though he no longer actively plays in The Honda Classic, golf is his busi-ness. He founded Nicklaus Design, which has created 365 golf courses in 34 countries, 289 in which Mr. Nicklaus has been personally involved. He cre-ated The Bears Club in Jupiter, and The Bear Trap at PGA National was named for him. He also is passionate about his charities. Groups organized by Mr. Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara, are the primary beneficiaries of the Classic, which awarded $1,266,422 to area childrens charities in 2011. Mr. Nicklaus talks about those organizations, along with his glory days of winning what is now The Honda Clas-sic, and living in northern Palm Beach County, with Florida Weekly. Question: The Honda Classic is fast approaching. Can you share some of your fondest memories of your days participating in the tournament? Is there one or two that stand out for you? Answer: Well, The Honda Classic has been through several iterations over the years, although the sponsor-ship and involvement of Honda has given it tremendous stability since the early 1980s. I played it primarily when it was the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic through the 1970s. I was never fortunate to win it when it was The Honda Classic, but I have some very fond memories when I won it those three years in a row (1976-77-78). Probably the most memorable victory, though, was in 1978 when I birdied the last five holes to win it. That was good fun. I remember I was frustrated at not being able to get any-thing into the hole in that round. I had just missed a putt at 13 for birdie, about a 15-footer, and I was really upset with myself because I needed a birdie to get myself back in the tournament. Then I either chipped it in or p utted in from across the green on the back fringe, after not a very good second shot. Then, boom! All of sudden, I said, Hey!Ž I then hit it on the fringe and chipped it up for birdie on 15. I chipped it in for birdie at 16. At 17, I had about a 20-footer, and I remember looking up at someone in a condominium yelling, which almost relaxed me at the time. I remember it was a tricky read on the putt, but I made it. And I made about a 4or 5-footer on the last hole. I got myself on a roll. It has happened to me a number of times in my career, when I get on a roll and all of sudden ƒ Its like the 86 Masters, you get on a roll and just keep going. And sometimes you dont realize youre on that roll until its over. It was kind of neat; it was a lot of fun. One thing happened after the other that needed to happen, and they did. A lot of times you start thinking, If I make a birdie here, I can do this. I just kept making birdies, and I kept getting closer and closer and closer, and all of sudden I was ahead and I won.Ž The tournament was always special for me because it was home. Even when it was in Fort Lauderdale, I still stayed at home and drove down every day. To be able to stay at home, to have your friends and family there with you „ all of those things are special. And I always seemed to play well. I played well at Inverrary most every year. Honestly, when I look back, most of my fondest memories of The Honda or the Gleason are of the people I met during those early years and the last-ing friendships I forged. For me, Jackie Gleason was a big part of the event, as was the ability to play with President Ford and Bob Hope. The first time I met Gleason was the first time I met President Ford. It was while President Ford was in office, probably 1974 or 1975. Barbara and I were having dinner at the Gleasons On the eve of The Honda Classic, Jack Nicklaus talks about golf, his charities and life in northern Palm Beach County bears Tigers ... oh my and BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comCOURTESY PHOTO Children’s charities supported by Barbara and Jack Nicklaus’ foundation are the main benefi-ciaries of The Honda Classic, which last year awarded $1,266,422.

house, and we began to talk about dogs. Barbara and I had always had small dogs „ ankle-biters, I jokingly called them „ and for about seven or eight years, I had wanted to get a big dog. But Barbara preferred to have a little one. Then, the president offered us a puppy from his golden retriever, Lib-erty, who was pregnant. Barbara said she would love one. When we got in the car, Barbara just knew she was going to hear it from me. She said, If he had given me a snake, I would have taken it. Ever since then, and up until recently, we have had golden retrievers. We had three from the same lineage, including our last golden, Cali, who was from the same kennel as Liberty. Then, after Cali passed, we got a Labradoodle named Bunker at a charity event. As for Gleason, we played several times together in the pro-am of his tournament, and always had a good time. Gleason was a character, and had a tremendous amount of fun. He loved golf. He loved being around it. He got a tremendous kick out of being involved with the tournament. And of course, he was a very talented man.(Mr. Nicklaus 5-shot win in 1977 over Gary Player is the record for widest margin of victory, notes Scott Tolley, Mr. Nicklaus vice president for corporate communications. It was tied in 2010 by Camilo Villegas, when he topped Anthony Kim by five shots.)Q: How has the tournament changed over the years? A: In the early days of the Gleason tournament, the Inverrary course was a pretty good golf course, a good test of golf. The tournament started out as more of a Gleasons fun day. It was a nice tournament and a lot of fun. I remember walking the fairways, talking to people in their condos and asking, How long are you in for?Ž Then they had it for a few years at Eagle Trace, Weston Hills and Heron Bay, and then Mirasol before it came to PGA National. Its had its transitions, but now I think they have found a home. The players like the golf course and the tournament. Players are now given the opportunity to compete on a championship golf course, a course that has history, has hosted major champi-onships and a Ryder Cup. That, along with strong leadership and tournament management, has allowed The Honda Classic to move itself back into the position it held in its early years. The stature of The Honda is growing, and I think it will continue to grow at PGA National. Q: What would you say are the major goals for the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation this year? A: In simplest terms, it is to continue to raise needed funds and support kids and their families. We have tried in recent years to take it from a South Florida-based charity to a national platform, and we are succeeding. Its an ongoing goal. But at the same time, we remain committed and focused to South Florida, particularly Palm Beach County. Thats why The Honda Clas-sic is so important to us. Its not just a tournament that provides us fund-ing as the primary beneficiary; its a vehicle to remind people of the work being done here in our own back yard to help support pediatric programs in Palm Beach County. For example, in a partnership with Miami Childrens Hospital, we opened our first Nicklaus Care Center at Palms West, which is in the western part of Palm Beach County. Our next project is a 23,000-square-foot Miami Childrens Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center opening later this year in Palm Beach Gardens, which will provide expanded pediatric health-care excellence. In addition to the rotation of an array of subspecialty physicians, the Nicklaus Outpatient Center will offer much-needed rehabilitative ser-vices, including speech, occupational and physical therapy, diagnostics and imaging and after-hours pediatric urgent care. We are very excited about that and think it will provide much-needed pediatric health care and ser-vices in a fast-growing area. Q: What would you like people to know about they can help? A: Barbara has often said, To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.Ž I think that rings true with how our local community can make a differ-ence in the life of a child. Every dollar raised or contributed to support the Miami Childrens Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center will allow children to receive world-class health care in their local community. As the atten-dance for The Honda Classic continues to rise each year, so does the contri-bution back to the Foundation as the primary benefiting charity. So every fan of golf attending The Honda Classic is supporting our efforts to help children. But the communitys support doesnt have to stop there; it can be year round. From a donor that can write a check, to a community or business that hosts a fundraising event or charitable golf tournament, to a child that organizes a lemonade stand „ every dollar makes a difference. Q: What excites you most about the work you and your wife do for others? A: As Barbara and I look back on our lives together, we realize and appreci-ate that golf has contributed to us hav-ing a lifetime of fulfillment, enrichment and happiness. Barbara and I made a commitment that once we were in a position to give back and to help oth-ers, we would, and that we would focus those efforts on kids. Barbara likes to say that Children are the root of the heart.Ž And it was (President John F.) Kennedy who said, Children are the worlds most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.Ž Children are not only our best hope for the future, but they are our future „ period. So why would we not exhaust every resource, every means to protect, if not enhance, our future? When you start out, you live your life, do the things for yourself that you can, and as you get older and get on with your life, you find that your own goals have been sat-isfied and your goals become goals for others.Ž Q: What do you love most about living in northern Palm Beach County? A: I like the size of the area. Its a moderately sized town, but its big enough to get all the things that you want. I would call it a little big city. It was the golf that originally brought me here in the mid-1960s, but there are so many other things that have kept us here. Theres the weather; the casual nature of things; and while its not overcrowded, the population is large enough to provide that energy you want. As for travel, Palm Beach International Airport is very easy to get in and out of, so that makes doing business out of here that much easier. There are so many options if you are an outdoor person, from golf to tennis „ which is one of my passions „ to boating and fishing. Barbara and I have been fortunate to travel all over the world, but there is no place we are hap-pier than when we come home. This is just a nice place to live. Q: Sounds like you have a tight schedule. What is next for you? A: Tomorrow, after today. You live for the day and hope that you can do more tomorrow. Today matters, so you do the best you can today and try to do more tomorrow.

Honestly, if there was a way she could leave without making a scene she would. How could her friends not know it was torture for her to listen to their adorable babyŽ stories? They all knew her last fertility treatment was unsuccessful. Was it really necessary for them to complain about morning sickness and screaming babies in her presence? How could they be so insensitive?People who have not dealt with the heightened anticipation and dashed hopes that characterize the world of infertility treatments may not under-stand the complicated depth of feelings involved. To make matters worse, there are even some misguided folks who may seem judgmental, and imply that perhaps you might have had something to do with it by postponing parenthood to promote your career, or by working or exercising too hard. Or, others may feel you shouldnt be so sensitive or doubtful, because your negativityŽ will only make things worse. Well-meaning friends and acquaintances may take the liberty of offering you advice and old wives tales,Ž even when you prefer to keep things private. Most people are not deliberately cruel when they speak inappropriately in your presence. Most of the time, theyre just not putting themselves in your shoes, and would even feel morti-fied if the offense were brought to their attention. Sometimes when we keep our struggles to ourselves, our friends erroneously assume were comfortable hearing every detail of their good news. When youre not in a good place, you may worry that your friends who are pregnant or already parents will move on in their lives and have less in common with you. You may believe its necessary to hold back your feel-ings because, otherwise, they will think you are being mean-spirited or petty. It becomes uncomfortable to lamely make excuses or avoid them without an explanation. So the question is, do you take the plunge and directly tell the friend what youre feeling? Its usually preferable to do so. Sometimes its just a matter of bringing it to their attention to make the difference. You may prefer to have a private conversation with an important friend, confiding just how difficult this has been. It may help to own the discomfort by saying: Tara, you know how much Ive valued our friendship, but lately, its been feeling uncomfortable. I really want to be excited for you and hear all about your toddlers latest antics. I guess Im just preoccupied with what Im going through and have trouble lis-tening. I hope you understand.Ž This conversation highlights that even though youre both in different situations, youd like to be a supportive friend. Youre just not emotionally in a comfortable place to do so the way youd like. Of course your discussion will be dictated by your history and shared experiences with this friend. If you feel safe enough to confide in her, she may value the confidence, and prove to be a source of sensitivity and support. We look to our friendships to offer us camaraderie and ease. Sometimes, we may need to ask ourselves whether the interactions are continually hurtful and harmful to our self-esteem. If over time the relationships are stressful, it may be necessary to limit our involvement, take a temporary breakŽ or, in some unfor-tunate cases, sever the ties. Of course, taking any of these steps may be painful or awkward because of a long history or shared circle of friends. It may be pref-erable to hold off making irreparable decisions while in a vulnerable place. Infertility can be a very isolating, frightening experience and you may not be ready to open up to others, especial-ly if it seems like their lives are working out much better than yours. If you are a person who loves to plan each step of your life, not being in control of the outcome brings frustration and tears. Your self-esteem may take a hit as you fight unwelcome feelings of jealousy, resentment and despair. You may worry that you and your partner do not have the emotional reserves to handle the stresses. Remaining hopeful and open to gratifying o utcomes is a valuable goal. Finding a support network of others who are sharing similar struggles may be a source of tremendous comfort and encouragement.

Ten years ago, one of these newborns was Nathan Watson. Nathan was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. His parents knew from birth that he would eventually need a heart valve replacement, which is when they start-ed research on what surgeon and what hospital would be best poised to treat their son when the time was right. Just days before his 10th birthday, that time came. That hospital would turn out to be St. Marys Medi-cal Center, and that pediatric heart surgeon, Dr. Michael Black. Traveling from Dallas, the Watsons came to St. Marys Medical Center for Nathans heart valve replacement sur-gery, knowing that Dr. Blacks innova-tive and minimally invasive heart sur-gery options could mean less recovery time and positive o utcomes f or their little boy. They also became a part of history,Ž said St. Marys Medical Center Chief Executive Officer, Davide Carbone. Nathans surgery was the first pediatric open heart surgery performed at St. Marys Medical Center.Ž Thanks to Dr. Black and his multidisciplinary team, Nathan received his heart valve surgery and it was a great success. So much so that just five days later, he celebrated his 10th birthday with the hospital staff, happily receiving a giant life-sized teddy bear and cake. At this celebration, Nathans mother commented, Its miraculous, absolutely miraculous.Ž Before returning to his home in Texas, Nathan also made a trip to the beach, enjoying the hot Florida sun and show-ing his tiny scar without hesitation. With Dr. Blacks minimally invasive surgical technique, the once-large scars associated with traditional open-heart surgery are replaced with tiny ones, usually no greater than a couple of inches. We couldnt ask for a better outcome,Ž said Nathans father. This story is a heartwarming recognition of the recent Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (Feb. 7-14). While this one week offers a special time of the year to nationally raise awareness and promote educa-tion about congenital heart defects, St. Marys Medical Centers Pediatric Car-diovascular Surgery Program provides this level of service and much more each day,Ž said Mr. Carbone. Our Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery Program utilizes experienced pedi-atric specialists including surgeons, car-diologists, anesthesiologists and inten-sivists,Ž said Linda Rankin, administra-tive director of pediatric services at St. Marys. The operating room staff and Pediatric Intensive Care nursing staff are highly trained to offer patients the maximum level of care.Ž The Childrens Hospital at St. Marys also features a new operating room and catheterization laboratory to ensure patients have access to the most advanced care. No matter what a patients needs, we are here for them,Ž said Ms. Rankin. The Childrens Hospital at St. Marys can provide extensive pediatric spe-cialty services to the children of South Florida and beyond.Ž In September, the Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery Program welcomed the arrival of Michael D. Black, MD, MBA, medical director of the Pediatric and Congenital Open Heart Program. Dr. Black brings 20 years of surgi-cal expertise to St. Marys and was at the forefront of the development of the minimally invasive surgical tech-niques and technology cardiovascular surgeons use today. By making smaller incisions, patients experience less tissue trauma,Ž said Dr. Black. Other techniques that do not divide the breast bone „ a practice typically performed in traditional car-diac procedures „ also may reduce infection rates while allowing patients to grow up with minimal scarring so they can live a more normal life. Once surgery is complete, children typically return home after just a few days.Ž Thanks to advanced surgical techniques, like the ones successfully used with Nathan, there are currently 2 mil-lion people living normal lives with congenital heart defects in America, according to the Childrens Heart Foun-dation. While high-tech approaches and a multidisciplinary medical team are available to ensure all patients medical needs are met, the most important part of the Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery Program is providing patients and their loved ones with the support they need. My main goal is to ease parents minds,Ž said Dr. Black. Any questions or concerns they may have, I am here to answer. I make a point to stay over-night at the hospital when a patient has undergone surgery to ensure I can do whatever possible to make the child and parents feel comfortable.Ž In addition to children, Dr. Black specializes in the treatment of adults with congenital heart disease. This provides all patients with congenital heart disease continuity of care throughout their lifetime at St. Marys Medical Center. When parents find out their child needs to undergo surgery, it can be an overwhelming experience,Ž said Dr. Black. Now, for residents in the greater Palm Beach area, we can offer services without the need to travel. It is our goal to offer a surgical solution that will last a lifetime so children with congenital heart defects can live long, happy lives.Ž Said Mr. Carbone: We are working to make the Cardiovascular Surgery Program at the Childrens Hospital at St. Marys one of the most innovative programs in Florida, and its right here in Palm Beach County.Ž Q For more information about the Pediatric Cardiovascular Program, see stmaryschildrensmc.com.Taking care of the tiniest hearts: High-tech with a human touchBLACK

Military Trail, Suite 212, Palm Beach Gardens Weller pottery was first made in 1872 in Fultonham, Ohio, but by 1882 Weller had moved to Zanesville, one of the main cities where pottery was made in Ohio. Hundreds of thousands of pieces of decorative art pottery and florist wares were made at Weller Pottery before it closed in 1948. It was a profitable pottery because its products were designed in the prevailing fashion and appealed to buyers. By the end of World War I, many pieces were being made in molds, then glazed in a variety of color combinations. Vases, wall pockets, jardinieres and other pieces were made to resemble real logs or frogs, and traditional vases were made with molded shapes that look like branches, animals, birds, flowers and even carved ivory. One very successful line, called Woodcraft,Ž was made from 1917 to 1928. Each piece resembled a real log or tree trunk with raised birds, animals or fruit as extra decoration. The colors added to the illusion of real wood. The pattern is popular with Weller collectors today. Kovels Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2012Ž lists a 19-inch Woodcraft vase with a squirrel and owl for $960, an 8-inch wall pocket that looks like a branch with berries for $173 and a 14-inch tree trunk vase with an owl for $325.Q: My husband inherited an unusual oak chair from his grandmother. Our chil-dren call it the scary face chairŽ because the chairs back is a carved wooden face that does indeed look scary. A label on the bottom says Made in Dayton, Ohio, by Stumps-Barnhardt.Ž Please tell me how old this chair is and what its worth.A: Your chair is called a North Wind chair,Ž a style popular during the late Victo-rian era (1880-1900) into the early 20th century. The face, from folklore, was supposed to blow evil spir-its away. Many U.S. companies made them. But take another look at the label on your chair. It says Stomps-Burkhardt,Ž not Stumps-Barn-hardt.Ž Gustave Stomps and his brother Joseph founded a furniture manufacturing business, G. Stomps Brothers & Co., in Dayton in 1859. The company became G. Stomps & Bro. in 1869, then Stomps-Burkhardt Co. in 1890, when Richard Burkhardt was named vice president and general manager. The com-pany closed in about 1928. Your chair was made during the 1890s. Today it would sell for close to $500 if its in excellent and original condition. Q: One of our sons found an interesting bottle in the woods near our cabin. Its a lovely green-blue color and is embossed Dr. Kennedys/Medical Discovery/Rox-bury, Mass.Ž We would like to know who Dr. Kennedy was, what the medical discoveryŽ was and when this bottle was made.A: Donald Kennedy (1812-1889) was born in Scotland and immigrated to the United States in 1833. Kennedy apprenticed with a currier, a person who works with leather, and studied medicine in his spare time. He began selling his Medical DiscoveryŽ in 1848. A newspaper ad in 1854 claimed it was the greatest medical discovery of the ageŽ and that it was warranted to cure every kind of humor (related to body fluids)Ž except thunder humor.Ž It sold for $1 a bottle and probably contained a mixture of herbs and alcohol. Dr. Kennedy made sev-eral other patented medicines and became very wealthy. His son, Dr. David Kennedy, took over the business when Donald died, and he continued to sell the Medical Dis-covery until 1928. The value of your bottle in good condition with no stains is $100.Q: I own a miniature metal building that has the words State BankŽ on the front. Its about 8 inches tall. There are no other marks on it. Id like to know what its worth.A: Your bank may have been made by Kenton Hardware Manufacturing Co., which was founded in Kenton, Ohio, by F.M. Perkins in 1890. At first, Kenton made locks. It became Kenton Hardware Co. in 1894 and began making cast-iron banks and toys. At one time, it was one of the largest cast-iron toy factories in the world. Kenton Toys was a trade name used by the company. Kenton closed in 1952. Most Kenton toys and banks were not marked, and many have been reproduced. The company made sev-eral versions of the State Bank in different sizes. Some were made with the name of the bank in letters arched over the door, and some with the letters in a straight line. Some versions were japanned or painted. An original Kenton State Bank sells for about $400 to $600, depending on size and condition.Tip: Never stack cut-glass bowls.

The average investor has no plan to address another financial crisis. That non-plan is a great plan as long as you are certain there will not be another equity crisis during the years in which you are retired or saving/investing for retire-ment. But if you are connected with current news, then you are well aware of a host of possible crises on the horizon. If an equity crisis historically had happened so very infrequently, it still would be of great concern to retirees who do not have a lifetime time to recover from, for example, a 50 percent haircut. The truth is that crises are happening with greater frequency, and they concern old and young investors. In fact, the pre-viously wildly accepted statistics upon which many equity portfolios were con-structed are now understood to be very wrong (Morningstar, Its Dj vu All Over AgainŽ). A core concept in investing is to increase value and then to compound upon the increase. But the compound-ing cant happen if every few years the portfolio gets knocked down (20 percent to 55 percent, for instance). For some, the experience is like the childs game of Chutes and Ladders; pretty hard to get to the top of the game board if you keep land-ing on a space that suddenly slides you all the way back down to a much lower level. And the knock-downs in equities between 1980 and 2011 have required a re…think and a re-work by financial statisticians and theorists about optimal portfolio asset allocations. Now what happens in a financial market crisis? Typically, all assets decline together „ even an equity portfolio that prior to the crisis was labeled diversified.Ž The diversification that an investor thought he had often disappears in a crisis. A melt-down starts with a big decline in the S&P, and then it triggers institutional selling as certain risk thresholds have been vio-lated (CME Group, Crisis AlphaŽ and In Search of Crisis AlphaŽ). And the individual investor, who was seemingly rational in a normal market, now adopts a different investing persona, maybe selling at the bottom, maybe freez-ing in panic, maybe attempting to liquidate hedge funds and private equity or other illiquid positions (prior source). Part of the risk management solution might well entail inclusion of an asset class in the portfolio that has historically delivered positive returns during turbu-lent times, also known as crisis alpha,Ž i.e. a positive return above the market not related to the market (prior source). Lets look at 2008, the year of the meltdown: The only alternative asset class that delivered positive returns was man-aged futures (measured as the Commod-ity Trading Adviser Index or CTA Index), and the spread between the S&P 500 and managed futures was a whopping 53 per-cent (May 2010, Managed Futures Today, Thirty Years of Managed FuturesŽ). Yes, 1987, 1998, 2000-2002, 2008-2009 are all crises in past history and history NEVER repeats itself. But it doesnt mean that there isnt a lot to be learned from history. What can be learned is that managed futures had five losses in the past 31 years: four losses were under 1.8 percent and 2011 suffered the worst performance for CTAs at a loss of 3.5 percent (prior source) Lets compare the CTA Index to the S&P 500 during recent years of crisis. In 1987, the spread of return in favor of man-aged futures was: 55 percent; 1990 was 27 percent; 2000 was 18 percent; 2001 was 14 percent; 2002 was 36 percent; and 2008 was 53 percent (prior source) If the need for a plan to handle major equity contractions and crises is so critical to all, especially older, investors, then why are there so few investors with such plans? Either they are in denial of such events; they have experienced so many crises that accept such as part of the new normalŽ; or their adviser is not putting the topic of portfolio risk management front and cen-ter before the client. And why might the latter be the case? First, many managers think it is not a great topic. Picture this: a client comes to an adviser for portfolio review and is already on edge about world events and 2011s S&P 500 was up, down, up and then ended flat. So the adviser has to calm the investor to stay the course, i.e. think long term, be well positioned for the future, etc.. All good. But in that bullish context, is it probable that the adviser will talk about the frequency of crises and portfolio protection „ that the last 11 years has been Chutes and Ladders? I do not think so. Second, the great majority of investment advisers are not registered to sell nor trained to explain managed futures. Yes, I am talking my book,Ž but this is not a story suggesting that you jump ship from the traditional asset class. It is a statement that you really need to look at why you dont have a plan for a crisis and that there is an asset class that has done well in normal times and exceptionally well in times of a crisis and might actually become a cornerstone for a portfolio risk plan. Consult your adviser, seek counsel of multiple advisers and certainly consider the insight of professionals who are spe-cialists. And after all that talking, create a plan.

B15 XStars worth watching Performances by Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon take your mind off bad storytelling. B11X WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 Shake out the off-season charley horses, Old-School-ers. Time to get young again. This is for those who can tell, from lengthening sunlight in the morning and not a broadcast, that pitchers and catchers are reporting back to work; for those who can still smell the sweat on a muslin jersey and the sting of a knee scuffed on a slide in a sandlot; for those who knead some neats-foot oil into their Rawlins Trapeze or Wilson Grip-Tite gl ove, slide into their team tunics and head for the ballpark for opening day. Spring Training is just around the corner. That would be the hot corner, third base, one of many terms peculiar to what purists still call the national pastime. The best view of a runner trying to score from there, with or without slo-mo replays and hyper-analysis, still comes from a stadium seat. Baseball, like music, is best when its live and in-person. Energy, uncertainty, drama ride with every pitch and hit, as it happens in the open air. A teams players, managers, executives, groundskeepers and ticket-takers and conces-sionaires always experience a game that way, and residents of this part of Florida have a better chance than most to share the view. To Palm Beach County and Roger Dean Stadium, each new season returns not one team but two, the Palm Beach Cardinals and Jupiter Hammerheads, and Spring Training brings back their parents, two teams with some of pre-seasons biggest buzz, in restaurants and snack shacks and taverns, not just online: the St. Louis Cardinals, defending world champions, and the reborn Miami Marlins, with new manager Ozzie Guillen on the top step of the dugout.

Those big-money negotiators and Wall Street deal brokers „ men in thousand-dollar suits with summer houses on the shore who toy with the economy the way children handle other peoples things (carelessly) „ the 1 per-cent that has the rest of us up in arms, what advice could they possibly have on romance? Recently the Internet has given us the Goldman Sachs gossip feed on Twitter, where anonymous users post exchanges overheard in the companys elevators. The 140-character quips offer an intensely private, intensely personal look into the minds of Americas ruling class. Its what bankers say when they think no one is listening. From earlier in the month:#1: I wish I invested in poverty. Its up 60 percent since 2001. #2: We did.And: #1: Its rough. A good friend of mine from associate training just got laid off. #2: I guess hes not your friend anymore.Of course, finance is a male-dominated field, so a lot of the talk comes off sounding like frat-house chatter:#1: Lately, I dont even call it a hangover anymore. Its just the morning.ŽAnd their approach to romance isnt much better:#1: Girls with huge boobs will never know if theyre really interesting.Or:#1: Skinny jeans and a fur coat. Looks sexy as hell, but reeks of high maintenance. #2: High maintenance is sexy.How do these overpaid, under-cultured Lotharios handle a woman once theyve snared her?#1: Chivalry is letting the chick still in your bed sleep in, then giving the doorman $100 to go kick her out in an hour.ŽThe most frustrating part about these guys is that theyre kind of funny „ actually, a lot funny „ and I have to wonder if this is what circulates through the male brain when we eliminate civi-lizing forces. Is this how all men would think if we stripped away compassion, sensitivity and respect? Perhaps this is pure, unvarnished manhood.#1: OK . Id never date a chick who . #2: Cites the Huffington Post. #3: Watches Greys Anatomy.Ž #4: Works in finance. [High fives all around]But even the biggest brutes can offer surprising bits of wisdom about life „ and love.#1: The PWM chicks know how to dress. #2 (nods): Pretty good wife material. Hot but not sl utty -looking. Smart but not too smart.ŽSo here it is, translated into financier-speak: What a lot of men are really thinking when it comes to finding a wife. Its the same advice Ive read in rela-tionship books; the same sug-gestions the Millionaire Match-maker gives every week. Men want women who dress well, who take care of them-selves, who are attractive and sen-sual but not sleazy. A man wants a woman who is bright, who can talk about books and world events, but who wont beat him at Words with Friends. Smart but not too smart. Its not terrible advice if we can overlook the source, and sometimes the best wisdom comes from the most unexpected places. After all, bankers are peo-ple, too. #1: Were like Ron Jeremy. We work hard, people are disgusted by us, but most guys are jealous of what weve got.Ž Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSLove advice from the Goldman twitter feed artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com o m k a a rt is HENDER SO N san dyd ays @fl oridaweek ly. com artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Music on the Plaza … its a heart full of soul. Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome The secret of good declarer play lies mostly in visualizing how the unseen cards are divided and putting this knowledge to effective use. The clues that furnish declarer with a picture of the opposing hands can come from the bidding, the play or both. Consider this deal where declarer failed to process the many clues avail-able. It was played in the South Africa-Ireland match at the 1960 World Team Olympiad. The South African declarer got to four hearts doubled as shown, and West led the club queen. South won with the ace, cashed the ace of trumps, felling Easts king, then led a diamond and suc-cessfully finessed the queen. After discarding a club on the ace of diamonds, declarer led a spade to the king, losing to the ace. South eventually lost two more spades and a trump trick and finished down one, -200 points. He was able to ruff his fourth spade in dummy to prevent an even greater loss. Souths early plays were certainly correct. The diamond finesse, though dan-gerous, was necessary, but after it suc-ceeded, South should have reassessed his prospects and made the contract. It was a serious mistake to lead a spade to the king at trick five. To play a spade from dummy was surely right, but to play the king was surely wrong. South should have placed West with the spade ace for his takeout double, because East had already turned up with the king of hearts and (by inference from Wests opening lead) king of clubs. Had South played a low spade on Easts eight at trick five and later played a low spade again, he would have gained a spade trick and made the contract. He also would have been 990 points to the better. Q CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER The clues point the way

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY1. The Cardinals started in the American Association in 1882 as the St. Louis Brown Stockings. Wisely, they dropped the stockings and became the Browns when entering the National League 10 years later. After a year aping a sponsor as the Perfectos, in 1899, they adopted Car-dinals. Another Browns team started in St. Louis in the American League in 1902, lasting there until 1954, when they flew to Baltimore as the Orioles.2. The team name didnt come from a bird. The Browns had just unveiled a new red color scheme in Sportsmans Park, anticipating a change of team name, and a woman fan sitting next to a team executive, the story goes, exclaimed Oh, what a lovely shade of cardinal!Ž3. Through the years the Cardinals have won 10,195 games, lost 9,490, and battled through 18 World Series, winning 11, including last years upset over the Texas Rangers.4. Dont paper this over: During last seasons home games, Car-dinals fans pawed through more than 17,315,200 feet of paper towels and 15,373,800 feet of toilet paper. No other team is claiming a major league record. 5. The official St. Louis mascot is somebody in a costume called Fred-bird, but the new favorite is a bandit named Buschie the Rally Squirrel, who is not wearing anything. The rally squirrel first leapt into the lime-light when it ran across home plate in a National League Championship Series game last Oct. 5, dodging a pitch from the Phillies Roy Oswalt to Skip Carpenter. The Cardinals won that game and the next one, advancing to an eventual World Series title. Go nuts!6. Through the years, players in the St. Louis farm system have helped shape baseballs language, from hitting a yakker for a tater (curve ball for a home run) to shoe-stringing a bloop (diving to catch a soft fly ball near the shoe-tops). Might be fun to see if someone this year comes up with something new for expanded use of replay by umpires (hoodump?). 7. List of parks that the St. Louis club has called home: Sportsmans Park, Robison Field (New Sports-mans Park), Busch Memorial Stadi-um (big, round and multi-use), Busch Stadium (an old-time look with mod-ern amenities, downtown). 8. Cardinals fans love Stan Musial and revere Bob Gibson, Hall-of-Fam-ers and both still living, and still talk about Joe Medwick and Dizzy Dean. Die-hard fans, though, often men-tion Rogers Hornsby first. In 1924, he won the National League batting title with a .424 average, highest in the major leagues in the 20th century, and the following year won his sec-ond triple crown with 39 home runs, 143 runs-batted-in and a .403 average. Earlier in the year he had taken over as manager. 9. Anyone listening to Cardinals broadcasts in the 50s and 60s over powerful KMOX radio heard one of the great broadcast teams ever, Jack Buck and Harry Caray, who later moved on to other teams and to national TV. Caray first sang Take Me Out to the BallgameŽ during the seventh inning stretch of a Chicago White Sox game.10. Nobody can know how the Cardinals will gel after manager Tony La Russa retired in the off-season, giving way to Mike Matheny, and star Albert Pujols moved on to the Los Angeles Angels, but pre-season odds-makers put them at 7-1 to get back to the Series. 1. The first pitch in the first game in Florida Marlins history, April 5, 1993, in Joe Robbie Stadium, Miami, Marlins vs. Dodgers, came from the hand of one of baseballs oldest play-ers. Charlie Hough had grown up in Hialeah, injured his arm so severely at age 21 that he couldnt throw hard and came up with a knuckleball. He threw it for three major league teams, starting with the Dodgers, and arrived in Miami at age 45, with 202 lifetime wins and a body that hurt with each pitch. He struck out the first hitter, Jose Offerman, on three pitches. Hough and the Marlins won, 6-3.2. Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio threw out the first pitch. As writer Tim Kurkjian wrote after the game, the win gave the franchise a 1-0 record. The Dodgers,Ž Kurkjian said, fell to 7,506-6,849.Ž 3. The Marlins have won 1,435 games, lost 1,575 and qualified for World Series in 1997 and 2003, win-ning them both and making them the quickest-to-two-titles franchise in history. 4. After once-revered owner Wayne Huizenga dismantled the Mar-lins starting days after their world championship, the Marlins fell to 54-108, becoming the first Series win-ner ever to lose 100 games the follow-ing year. 5. Manager Jack McKeon and a team including Miguel Cabrera, Jeff Conine, Gary Sheffield, Carl Pavano and a high-kicking fire-baller named Dontrelle Willis, brought the Mar-lins back in 2003 to beat the Yankees and manager Joe Torre in the World Series. Strange but true: In the movie Back to the Future II,Ž released in 1989, a newspaper headlined a Mar-lins World Series win in 2003. 6. Willis, known to most only by Dontrelle,Ž earned laurels in base-ball as Miamis Home Town Hero. He went 14-6 with a 3.03 earned-run-average and was named National League Rookie of the Year. The fol-lowing season he went 22-10 with a 2.63 ERA and finished second in the voting for the Cy Young Award, to baseballs best pitcher. Despite strug-gles since, he is set to play this year for the Philadelphia Phillies. 7. With a new stadium and a fresh name and look, the Miami Marlins will take the field for the first time anywhere in Roger Dean Stadium, opening Spring Training on March 5 against the St. Louis Cardinals. New manger Ozzie Guillen and proven stars Hanley Ramirez, Josh Johnson and Carlos Zambrano inflate hopes, already full of spring air, for the com-ing season. 8. Every year brings a new team motto. Here are the forerunners for the Marlins: Q Be Here When It HappensŽ (1997) Q E very Day, Every Game, All Heart!Ž (1 998…99) Q Get Back In The GameŽ (2003) Q Get Hooked!Ž (2004…05) Q You Gotta Be Here!Ž (2007…08) Q Its Where You Wanna Be!Ž (2 009) Q Serious F un. Get In On It!Ž (201 0) Q Catch Our Moves!Ž (2011)9. In 2003, the Marlins made Major League Baseball history with the big leagues first dance-and-cheer team, the Marlins Memaids. In 2008, the Marlins unveiled the Marlins Mana-tees, MLBs first all-male dance/ener-gy squad, alongside the Mermaids. This year, the team bumped the danc-ers in favor of in-game entertainment.10. Miami has jazzed up its new logo, a fish high-jumping an M,Ž to mirror the areas tropical colors. The more literal marlin that served for so many years might have been a flamin-go, if the team had gone with an early suggestion: Florida Flamingos. 1. The only stadium in America that permanently hosts two minor league baseball teams, and one of only four in the country that houses two Major League teams for Spring Training; also welcomes in the U.S.A. Baseball Junior Olympic Tournament in June and the Baseball America/Perfect Game Wood Bat Championship in October. 2. The stadium and its facilities stretch across 110 acres of Abacoa. Its divided into halves, with each team using its own clubhouse and a half-dozen practice fields.3. Groundbreaking was in March 1997, and, in the first game, on Feb. 28, 1998, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Montreal Expos, 5-0. First batter was Mark Grudzielanek, and the first hit and home run belonged to Mark McG-wire. Winning pitcher was Cliff Politte. 4. Stadium vendors are known for surprising seasonal snack foods, including crab-cake sliders, shrimp poboy and the Dean Dog (jumbo hot dog with peppers and onions).5. Stadium name: Roger Dean Chevrolet of West Palm Beach paid $100,000 per year through 2009 and renewed the contract through the 2017 season for an undisclosed amount. 6. Hurricanes Jean and Frances lashed the stadium in 2004, knocking down seven of the stadiums eight light towers, damaging the roof of the Car-dinals clubhouse and the press box and leaving $3.2 million in damage. 7. Grass growing on the fields at Roger Dean, carefully cut to a half-inch and tended by a dutiful crew, is a strain of Bermuda called Celebration, which comes from a turf farm northeast of Bradenton. 8. The most visible members of a large professional staff are the mascots, Robbie the Redbird of the Palm Beach Cardinals and Hamilton R. Head of the Jupiter Hammerheads. Bigger than life!9. Gloves are fine, cameras are good, colorful outfits are encouraged, but these items are NOT allowed into Roger Dean Stadium: coolers of any size, backpacks, bags larger than 16Ž by 16 inches by 8 inches, cans, glass containers or open containers, alcohol or weapons, broom sticks, offensive signs, political signs, fish nets (except as stockings), any projectiles that can cause injury or disrupt the game.10. Since 2006, the Roger Dean concourse has been home to the 35-year old Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame, with new additions every year.

Based on the measurements, Dr. Logger helps the group place their turtles into a size classification to determine age and spe-cies. They role-play taking blood with a syringe and learn about the different things a blood sample can reveal. The children look at X-rays, locate a hook in the turtles throat and learn more about the steps necessary during sea turtle rehabilitation. Then, the group tags their turtles with a unique num-ber and mimics a successful sea turtle release into the ocean.

YesThis Means WarŽ has so much handsomeness, beauty and charm that it almost makes you forget how bad a movie it is. Almost. Surely, ridiculous implausibility and inane storytelling are enough to undo any movie, right? Well, Reese With-erspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are here to chal-lenge that notion with their big blue movie-star eyes, million-dollar smiles and delightful senses of humor. Hardy and Pine play CIA operatives/best friends Tuck and FDR, respective-ly, who are working to stop a terrorist named Heinrich (Til Schweiger) from world domination. Tuck has an ex-wife (Abigail Spencer) and son (John Paul Ruttan), while FDR is the consum-mate ladies man. Things are peachy between Tuck and FDR until each meets and becomes infatuated with Lauren (Witherspoon), an unlucky-in-love single woman whose job as a con-sumer reports executive should make her uniquely qualified to judge between two quality products. Knowing that they are in competition for her, both men use all the CIA resources they can find in hopes of getting the upper hand. But even with the help of best friend Trish (a hilarious Chelsea Handler), Lauren cant choose „ and considering the rugged manliness of Hardy and the pretty-boy hotness of Pine, who can blame her? As for Tuck and FDR, friendship be damned „ this is Reese Witherspoon theyre fighting for, after all. The best moments come when director McG shows the guys one-up each other as they date Lauren, the highlight of which comes when Tuck takes her paintballing to show that hes not all safe.Ž Clearly, the actors are having a good time with this „ as they should „ which makes it only a minor nuisance that bad-guy Heinrich insists on popping up in order to keep the thrown-together plot intact. But just when you think its all silly fun, McG unleashes some stunning camera work that will please even the most nay-saying cineastes. Specifically, on Lauren and FDRs first date theres a long-take tracking shot that is some-thing of a technical marvel: We see Lauren and FDR outside as they walk into a club, through a crowd and to their table, which has been brought out just for them. Its a respectable homage to the Copacabana sequence in Goodfel-las,Ž and any film lover should appreci-ate the time, choreography and patience it takes to capture such a shot. Sure, its a nugget of aesthetic gold inside a Hollywood cash register, but darn if it doesnt make everything else that much more tolerable. This Means WarŽ is one scene too long and full of things that could never possibly happen. But its also the kind of movie you cant help but like, featuring a story told with such whimsy and glee that the only possible way to react to it is to smile. And so I smiled. Q Safe House + (Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga) Young CIA Agent Matt Weston (Reynolds) attempts to keep rogue former agent Tobin Frost (Washington) in custody as they travel through South Africa. The story is predictable and the action is over -edited to the point of nausea. Rated R. Journey 2: The Mysteri-ous Island ++ (Dwayne Johnson, Josh Hutcherson, Michael Caine) Punk teenager Sean (Hutch-erson) and his mothers (Kristin Davis) boy-friend (Johnson) search for Seans grand-father (Caine) on a lost island. Its loosely based on the Jules Verne novel, and book lovers will smile at the liberties taken with classic literature; but the acting, 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 womans 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.

D elivering L unch!$25 Minimum O rder (Limited Ar ea) Her reasoning was simple.Theres almost nothing that goes with the Schubert. It was a great plea-sure to write a companion for it,Ž Dr. Taaffe Zwilich says. The QuintetŽ offers the composer an opportunity to explore the tonalities of the instruments. Its something that doesnt usually get talked about in music theory and composition „ Im very interested in the weight of instruments. The double bass brings a kind of musical weight to a piece, and I wanted things that could sort of grow out of it,Ž she says. The size of it, its very hard to explain. Its not just that its lower, its bigger, and to make the ensemble come up to it in size, I found that a very interesting part of it.Ž She wanted the sound to grow out of the bass. I didnt want him to be the lowest note in the room,Ž she says. Thats part of the instruments.Im a big believer in maneuvering around chamber music. I like the idea that (the instruments are) flexible and able to use their whole range,Ž Dr. Taaf-fe Zwilich says. Being able to sort of leap tall buildings. Its in their nature.Ž There is an analogy she likes:Its like a singer on steroids. So the bass is not always the lowest note, but its his weight that influenced my thinking on the whole ensemble.Ž The whole ensemble is what Dr. Taaffe Zwilichs music is about, and that means knowing when to let go. Im kind of a fanatic about editing and making sure that everything is as clear as I can make itŽ for the musicians, she says. For me, one of the great moments in my life is that moment when I feel like its their piece and no longer my piece. One of the great things about live music is that it lives and breathes Youre counting on not just the tech-nique of the performer, but the soul of the performer. You give them as much as you can give them then get out of the way. Its a question of I want them to own it, not me.Ž Though the Miami-born composer has had a 40-year career, dont expect her to look to her past. But she does have a history of note. Dr. Taaffe Zwilich, who will be 73 in April, earned her bachelors degree at Florida State University. From there, she moved to New York, where she played violin in the Ameri-can Symphony Orchestra under Leop-old Stokowski. She studied at Juilliard, and in 1975, became the first woman to earn a Doctor of Musical Arts in com-position, and she first came to promi-nence when Pierre Boulez programmed her Symposium for OrchestraŽ with the Juilliard Symphony Orchestra in 1975. In 1983, she topped that honor by becoming the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for music, taking the award for her Three Movements for Orchestra (Symphony No. 1).Ž And in the 1990s, Charlie Brown and the PeanutsŽ gang lined up in the comic strip to hear the premiere of a work by none other than Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. But thats all history.I dont look back. Im not interested so much in style. Im interested in a result,Ž she says. There are certain things that are always there. Im always looking forward. Im not the one to ask about that.Ž It helps keep her moving forward.I do a lot of planning for pieces. Once I get going, sometimes I spend more time in planning a piece, but once I get started I try to listen to it,Ž she says. That can mean letting the music create itself. Like a playwright, or like a novel, you can create characters, but after a certain place you cant mess with them. They do this or that, they have their own persona. You have to listen to your characters, and listen to your piece,Ž she says. How does that work?The way to listen to music is in a time frame. Not to listen for this or that but to have an open ear. Whats going to happen next? Its interesting that we have this ability to go backward and forward in time, that whats happen-ing in that moment is affected by what happened before,Ž Dr. Taaffe Zwilich says. The payoff?If you can follow the line, that makes me very, very happy,Ž she says. Which brings us back to that Quintet.Ž What should audiences listen for in this piece? There is a little quote from Schubert, very little, but you dont have to know that or be waiting for it. I think that people should just listen with a curious, open ear,Ž she says. And a concert worth savoring.It will be a perfect performance „ no, a thrilling, wonderful performance,Ž she says. If you dont like it, blame me.Ž Q “QUINTET”From page B1 >>What: The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio performs Beethoven’s “Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in B at,” Op.11 (“Gassenhauer”), the South Florida premiere of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s “Quintet for Contrabass, Cello, Viola, Violin, and Piano” and Schubert’s “Quintet in A for Piano and Strings” D. 667 (“The Trout”).>>When: 8 p.m. Feb. 28 >>Where: The Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.>>Cost: $20 and up >>Info: 832-7469 or www.kravis.org in the know “For me, one of the great moments in my life is that moment when I feel like it’s their piece and no longer my piece.” – composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15Chef Allan Doherty clips his pen into the sleeve of his chefs jacket and finally sits down at one of the teaching tables in the production kitchen of ChefCorp. Weve got a lot going on all at once,Ž he said. I just got back from delivering lunches to two schools.Ž He and his partner, Chef John Carlino, both former instructors at West Palm Beachs Lincoln Culinary Institute, are running at warp speed to enlarge a pro-duction kitchen, take on more healthful meal catering for schools and senior centers, and run the Cider Doughnut business they also partner in. Hes finally worked in time to sit down and talk about one of the favorite parts of the business „ the ChefStart kids cooking school. Legally, its a cooking school, but we call it a cooking camp,Ž he said. But the state looked it over and said its a cook-ing school for kids.Ž The pair began the school four years ago in Abacoa in the Cooks Inc. teach-ing kitchen. With the growth of the production side of their business, they outgrew the space. But the kids they already attracted followed them south to the location in the Home Depot plaza on Northlake Boulevard. A lot of the same kids are here year after year,Ž the chef said. They love it „ and because we have so many repeats, we have to do something dif-ferent every year.Ž Suzanne Otero, a teacher from the Weiss School, helped the chefs break down their instruction into proper lessons and educational blocks, creating exercises and the quizzes that reinforce the teach-ing. Shes been an important part of the team in making sure this is a proper education.Ž Chef Ashley Glenn is the lead instructor, while chefs Carlino and Doherty round out the hands-on team and help supervise the students as they cook. Its fun and serious at the same time, he said. Our goal was to teach kids to cook with solid fundamentals. We think the better educated kids are about all aspects of food and cooking, the better equipped they are for life. Cooking is a life skill „ there are many components to it that carry over into all aspects of life.Ž Safety in the kitchen, organization and planning menus, as well as team-work are some of the skills theyre taught during a week-long session. There are 11 weeks offered this summer; youngsters ages 8 to 14 can sign up for one or all 11. The hands-on classes have a cap of 21 students. The chefs base the class format on those they taught to older culinary students. Its all hands-on and very dynamic,Ž Chef Doherty said. Theyre immersed in all aspects of cooking. Each week is a different theme. They come in and gather round the tables to look at their menus for the day. We talk about the theme „ Italy or America or the Mediterranean „ it might be pizza and pasta „ and the foods and culture surrounding them all related to the theme. Then we get into the individual components „ the flavors and ingredients. Youngsters learn cooking and life skills at ChefStart Well have the key components out so they can see, touch, smell and taste each food and talk about where they come from. We demonstrate techniques theyll use in the recipes, and tell them how each dish is prepared so they can write it out in their own words, then they get to work.Ž Technical knowledge is based on a professional kitchen and methods used are the same that are taught to adult students. Theyre learning to move around in the kitchen safely, learning motor skills like chopping and peeling „ learn-ing to use chefs knives properly and safely. They learn what the proper tool is for each technique. They can work the convection ovens, and move pots on the stove. By the end of the week, theyre flying around in an iron chefs competition. Its amazing to watch their confidence build each day,Ž he said. Though they learn to prepare healthy after-school snacks and lunches for themselves, they also are taught to make dishes suitable for the family dinner. We dont dummy down the lessons,Ž the chef said. Theyre learning real recipes from scratch. Weve made a butter and egg sauce using a double boiler. This isnt easy „ its fragile, and breaks if youre not careful. Four of the six teams that week got it right on the first try, and the other two teams knew immediately what they did wrong „ it was the heat „ and got it spot on, on the second try. That was a beautiful thing.Ž Theres a great deal of feedback from parents and kids, he said „ progress reports that prove the enthusiasm and confidence the students gain with each lesson. At the first part of the week, parents tell the teachers their kids are helping with dinner, maybe peeling potatoes or making a salad or a vegetable. By the end of the week or after two weeks, many are cooking a full meal, including desserts „ from scratch. They ask their parents to buy things, like fresh mushrooms. One mom was really amazed „ this kid wouldnt touch mushrooms. But learning all about mushrooms and how to prepare them „ now hes empowered.Ž But theres the popular culture the school bows to, as well. Were doing a session on cupcakes and cakes this sum-mer,Ž Chef Doherty said. Its by popu-lar demand. Theyre big on TV. And were doing a week on Christmas in July „ theyll learn to make all the top cookies for the holidays „ sugar cook-ies, ginger cookies and make a simple gingerbread house. Well create all the templates so they can put it away in an envelope and pull it out to make their own gingerbread houses this year.Ž The JeopardyŽ-like quizzes and an Iron Chef-style competition are high-lights of the week, he said. They really get fired up for the Iron Chef contest „ its all about them. We give them the mystery ingredient the day before. So that night, they go home and start researching recipes on the Internet, planning what theyll do. They have to do an appetizer, entre, a salad, and if they can, a dessert that mirrors the theme that week. The parents drop them off the next morning, and we tell them its Iron Chef day „ they say, We know! Thats all theyve talked about all night.

They amaze us with what they come up with.Ž But the chef gets serious and doesnt want to talk about why kids arent learn-ing to cook at home. Its obvious and clear „ a lot of parents are out working and that pulls away from time with their kids.Ž He stops there. Ive got very strong opinions about this. Its not the environment I grew up in,Ž the Boston native said. I grew up in an inner city neighborhood. Some-body in my family lived with us, and everybody was around the corner. We were like a pack. My grandmother lived across the street. So every Monday without fail, we were all at my grand-mothers „ shed cook soup. We all ate fish on Fridays „ no meat. Youd walk down the street and smell marinara cooking. Its just not like that today. Its a much bigger challenge today for parents.Ž As for the cooking shows on TV, where many kids learn about cook-ing foods from scratch, Chef Doherty believes its a good thing. Theres noth-ing wrong with TV chefs. But we tell the kids theres a lot more work that goes into those shows than you see on camera. First, we start with an onion and some garlic.Ž He laughs. We talk about how the TV chefs take the bowl of garlic and dump it in the pot. We tell them someone had to take this garlic,Ž „ he holds up an imaginary bulb „ and get it from this to that.Ž They fresh ingredients are prepped by the students „ there are few short-cut foods used. They buy as many organic products as possible, and bring in conventional foods as well to compare. We have to be careful not to go overboard, but we do stay away from anything frozen or processed. We do use boneless chicken breast „ we dont want to mess around with whole chickens or deal with bones. We really dont have time to dress a chicken and I doubt that many people do it at home. But we make most of our foods from scratch.Ž Nutrition and healthful foods are discussed, but the topics are woven into the days work. We tried a whole week of power foods and nutrition „ it was the most unpopular week we did, so we incorporated the information into the regular lessons everyday.Ž Mostly, though, its set up as a summer camp „ and meant to be a lot of fun, with education on the side. I expect to see some of the kids whove been with us from the start,Ž the chef said. They look forward to it and sign up early.Ž Q Chefs John Carlino and Allan Doherty COURTESY PHOTO

C2 healthy living FEBRUARY 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYKeep your personal “machine” in peak condition H idden physical gotchasŽ can slow us down even when were eating high-quality, nutritious food and doing regular vigorous physical exercise. You drop your keys, bend over to pick them up, and all of a sudden youve hurt your lower back. Or youre inspecting the heirloom tomatoes at the local organic market and someone calls your name. You turn your head in sur-prise, and suddenly youve twisted your neck. Hidden spi-nal misalignments may be the cause of these unwel-come problems. Your chiropractor locates the source of these difficulties and chiropractic care restores more normal spinal func-tion. Spinal muscles, ligaments and tendons now work more effectively and youre able to enjoy increased health and well-being. Good nutrition, exercise and chiropractic care work together to help you thrive and help keep you moving. Every driver knows that you cant get to your destination with one foot on the accelerator and the other on the brake. For safe, efficient travel you switch smoothly between these two pedals and you reach your goal effec-tively. But simple machines such as automobiles are fairly easy to operate. There arent that many options. The human machine, on the other hand, has an almost infinite number of possible operating modes. And the human machine doesnt come with an instruc-tion manual. As an example, its obvious that your car wont move forward if youre rid-ing the brake. But its not that obvious when youre holding down the corre-sponding metaphorical pedal of your physical organism. At some point, most of us slow ourselves down in this way without knowing it. And the price we pay may be far more serious than that involved in the necessity of re-lining the brakes of our car. What does riding the brakesŽ look like for humans? What slows us down? What actions interfere with our ability to thrive, our ability to enjoy vibrant good health? Not eating a wide variety of nutritious food is a prime culprit. Our bodies are not designed to live on fast food, lots of simple carbohydrates, and a dearth of fresh fruits and vegeta-bles. Another brakeŽ on good health is lack of vigorous physical activity. Our bodies were designed long ago for vigorous physical work, i.e., exercise. It really is true that were not born with an instruction manual. Parents know this all too well, first when their kids are infants and toddlers and much later when the formerly cute preschoolers grow up to become too-worldly-too-soon teenagers. But such an instruction manual would be invalu-able for all adults and all young people. Finally, wed be able to have access to first-hand information on how to take care of ourselves. As the most basic example, when we buy a new car the schedule of main-tenance is clear. Check-ups and an oil and filter change every 5,000 miles. Bigger systems overhauls every 15,000 miles, with specific diagnostics and possible replacements at 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and so on. Most cars have a built-in reminder that flashes when its time to go to the dealership. Every-things laid out for us. But with our bodies „ very possibly our most precious possessions „ such formal guidance is just not available. All we have to go on is folklore and guesswork. And so people ride their brakes, blithely cruising along and never giving a thought to how theyre really doing. But at some point a price must be paid and things begin to go wrong. At that point, its often very hard to recover. Put simply, if were missing out on high-quality nutrition and plenty of exercise, were riding the brakesŽ and may find ourselves coming to a stop. Hopefully, well notice in time that were slowing down. We can regain our normal cruising speed if were willing to take healthy actions on our own behalf. Fortunately, there are many things we can do to restore our good health. Regular exercise, eating a variety of healthy foods, and getting regular chiropractic care are three important actions that, done consistently, will keep our physical machinesŽ in peak condition.

I n most divorce cases money is the centrally disputed issue. In any given divorce case the issues of equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, alimony, child support, and of course, whos going to pay for the attorneys fees and costs incurred by both sides are all about money. When dealing with financial issues in a divorce people usually have two distinct points of view. I affection-ately label these points of view as the Stickler and Adjuster perspec-tives. The Stickler wants to make sure that no stone is left unturned so as to insure that they get every penny theyre entitled to. They are less concerned with the final result than they are that they are not taken advantage of. Alternatively, the Adjuster wants to find an expedited big-pictureŽ solution, and is more interested in a reasonable settle-ment. The Adjuster is generally will-ing to take less to avoid confrontation. There are plenty of people who occupy the middle ground between these per-spectives, however most people tend to trend one way or the other. While there is nothing wrong with either point of view; as a general rule the Stickler should be prepared to spend substan-tially more money on a divorce. As a divorce lawyer it is my job to act as a human barometer in the initial consultation, essentially predicting what is likely to happen if the case was to go to trial. This is important because if you do not know what is likely to happen in court, you do not know what would be a reasonable settlement. Pay close atten-tion, I used the word reasonable, not fair. One of the biggest hurdles for most people who are getting divorced is the exclusion of the word fair from their divorce vocabulary. Websters College Dictionary defines the word fair as, free from bias, dis-honesty, or injustice; legitimately sought done, given, etc.; proper under the rules.Ž The reality is that people going through a divorce rarely share the same perspective about much of any-thing, particu-larly about money. Fairness is completely subjective, and as such not a realistic goal in divorce. Realism on the other hand contemplates an objective look at ones situation. I consistently advocate realism to aid my clients in navigating through a divorce, because it is only the willingness to embrace the realities of ones position which allow them to move forward. It has been said that money is the root of all evil. It has also been said that money makes the world go round. Either way, there is no question that money is a deeply important part of all of our lives. But there is more to money than just the obvious. Somehow money seems to touch almost every aspect of our lives. There is no end to various facets of the human condition that we can tie to money issues, such as: joy, expectation, worry, anger, love, hate, c onfusion, and motivation. To quote Cyndi Lauper, moneyƒchanges everything.Ž In the context of a divorce, the financial issues of the case end up being a battlefield for many of the longstanding psychological and emotional issues which divided the cou-ple to begin with. Alimony is one of the most contentious issues in divorce. One of the rea-sons it is so contentious is that there are no specific guidelines as to whether alimony is appropriate; how much ali-mony should be paid; and for how long. When alimony might be appropriate in a case there are two absolutes, which are that no one wants to pay it and everyone wants to receive it. Equitable distribution, or dividing stuff in laypersons terms, is a differ-ent animal altogether. In this instance people are arguing about the division and value of assets and liabilities. In Florida while there is a presumption that assets and liabilities should be divided equally, the courts do have the ability to divide them unequally. It is important to remember that we are still essentially talking about money. Most things are replaceable, and while it shouldnt mat-ter whether you get a particular asset or its financial equivalent, somehow it does. Once while attending mediation, my client sent word to her husband that she would either buy or sell a particular asset for a particular price. At the time I recall thinking that she had just indisput-ably set the fair market value. When her husband refused the deal, I realized what the true lesson was. Sometimes, it just isnt about the money and sometimes it is.

As the name suggests, this Swiss-engineered shoe is designed to make walking a physically and emotionally enjoyable experience. If we walked the way nature intended, we would be bare-foot on soft earth all day long. The foot is an incred-ibly complicated architectural mas-terpiece, with 26 bones (plus two sesamoids), and scores of muscles, tendons and liga-ments. Just like our hands, our feet are designed to move in three planes of motion. They are designed to articulate and adapt to uneven terrain. But for most urban dwellers, we spend the bulk of our day on concrete, tile, asphalt and hard surfaces. These surfaces have no cushioning and they dont allow our feet to articulate or adapt to terrain fluctuations. Instead, our feet travel through the same, repeti-tive pounding motion with each step we take. Many common foot ailments, including plantar fasciitis (heel pain) are commonly regarded as repetitive stress injuries. Joya shoes, marketed as the Worlds Softest Shoe,Ž allow the foot to articulate and move naturally, but also provide incredibly soft, resil-ient cushioning between your body and the concrete surfaces we walk on. Joya creates the floating feeling of being suspendedŽ above concrete. Your feet are allowed to adapt and move as if you were walking on soft earth or sand. Joya makes walking a barefoot sensa-tion without exposing the body to the physical stress of walking on concrete. Since the dual-density polyurethane (PU) midsole is highly resilient, the shoes not only absorb impact, but they return energy. Joya shoes were invented by Karl Mueller, the son of the inventor of the MBT shoe. As a teenager, he worked side-by-side with his father as the MBT brand became internationally known as a physiological shoe for health and wellness. In 2006, Karl and his father left their company and sold MBT to an investment group. After opening two successful fashion labels, Karl became obsessed with developing the next gen-eration of comfort shoes. He wanted to develop a shoe that made walking a naturally pleasant experience with no learning curve, instructional DVDs or manuals. Following years of testing, he partnered with Joya co-founder Claudio Minder, and launched the Joya prod-uct line at the GDS Shoe Conference in Germany in the spring of 2009. In their short three year history, Joya has exploded as one of the leading comfort shoe brands in Europe, with an esti-mated 500,000 Germans wearing the shoes alone. According to Terry Stillman, CEO of Joya USA: Joya fever is now also spreading rampantly throughout the United States, where we have partnered exclusively with the best independent comfort shoes stores across the country. Once you have worn Joya, the feeling is so great that it is almost impossible to go back to wearing any other type of footwear.Ž Q For more information on Joya footwear, stop by and visit Keola Health & Well-Being Studios at Downtown at the Gardens or www.joya-usa.com.Walking shoes cushion feet on hard surfaces COURTESY PHOTO Joya shoes help feet feel “suspended” above hard surfaces.

C6 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYEYEFrom page C1An increase in eye-health problems often occurs as people age, as well. Certain health conditions „ high cho-lesterol, thyroid problems, depression or anxiety, arthritis that requires medi-cation „ bring an added risk-factor. Although presbyopia cant be prevented or cured, the AOA web site notes, the medical profession can provide options, ranging from glasses to surgery, for bet-ter eyesight At the Mittleman Center, Ms. Alva-rez says she attends every continuing-education eventŽ the center offers to help her keep up with medicines ever-changing diagnostic and treatment tech-niques. Her boss, Dr. David Mittleman, has made the invest-ment for his employees to learn.Ž She offers a quick cataract overview: Doctors cant really tell you what causes that clouding of the eyes lens, but they can site potential contributing factors: exposure to ultraviolet light; genetic predisposition; diabetes; the use of certain medication, such as steroids, diuretics, and major tranquilizers. You can slow the progress of cataracts by wearing proper UV eyewear,Ž „ sun-glasses „ she says. Down a hallway and around a corner, Dr. Elon Luzon steps away from a light-ed screen hes been studying to expand on the subject of visual health. As an optometrist, he treats eye diseases and specializes in fitting contact lens-es. (Optometrists are O.D.s, doctors of optometry; ophthalmologists are M.D.s, medical doctors, who also can perform eye surgeries.) He leads the way into a room with several tables and takes a seat at one of them. A primary interest area for Dr. Luzon is dry eye, a condition in which a person makes insufficient tears to properly lubricate the eyes. Dry eye can cause an individuals eyes to feel gritty, scratchy or irritated or cause a burning sensation. With an aging population, its a more and more common condition,Ž he says. Its more common with women than men. Or, at least, women are more likely to talk about it. Were trying to start a dry-eye clinic here. Its not just one disease, not one-disease-fits-all. Some-one can actually over-tear, but those tears arent necessarily hydrating your cornea.Ž The condition develops over time, but it can be exacerbated by an allergy. And, although environmental factors can lead to dry eye, Dr. Luzon says, age „ too many birthdays,Ž as he puts it „ is the real culprit. Tacked to the wall to Dr. Luzons left is a display poster, a reminder that patient expectations are to be met. It lists them: Q Accessibility Q Respect their time Q Use plain language Q Help them help themselves Q Care about them Q Value for their money E v eryone here seems well-versed in the centers emphasis on patient respect. Dr. Mittleman „ hes away this week, traveling in Africa „ is a stickler for that. The staff tends to say things like the patient is 40 years youngŽ and, This is our guest area, not our waiting room.Ž But whether patients consider themselves 50-plus years young or 50-plus years old, their eyesight is a serious concern. Dr. Luzon segues to another potential vision problem: glaucoma, a group of eye conditions that lead to damage to the optic nerve „ the second most common cause of blindness in the U.S. Glaucoma is also multifactorial,Ž he says, referring to its many forms, the most common of which, open-angle glaucoma, is genetic. It comes from your parents,Ž he says, then deadpans: If all else fails, blame them.Ž Macular degeneration can have an environmental cause. Smoking is a major one. Smoking cessation is the most important factor . Our South Florida brethren need to understand that you dont just stop smoking after 50. You wouldnt just wear sunscreen after 50.Ž Medication can slow glaucomas progression, the doctor says, but it cant prevent it. He recommends annual exams, during which an ophthalmologist takes a medical history and does a physical exam to look for possible signs of dam-age at the back of the eyes to determine whether the disease is present. The eye is the only part of the body where you can see blood vessels without surgery,Ž Dr. Luzon says. Medicare, he says, often can cover any ocular complaint, even if the patient cant always feel or perceive it in advance of an exam. Which prompts Ms. Alvarez to cite another of the centers mantras: Early diagnosis, early cure.Ž Q MITTLEMAN LUZON SERVING PALM BEACH COUNTY SINCE 1978 Most Qualified Audiology Staff in Palm Beach County All Doctors of Audiology AUDIOLOGY & SPEECH PATHOLOGY DR.

F lorida is called the Sunshine StateŽ for a reason. We have an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. That is why we all live here, right? Unfortunately, all that sun-shine can create visual dangers. Two of those dangers are ultra-violet light and glare. The sun produces visible and invisible light waves. The invisible waves are called ultra-violet light, which almost all sunglasses protect against. The visible light waves produced by the sun do not travel to the earth in a single direc-tion. When this scattered light meets a horizontal surface, like a road or water, a large portion of the light is reflected into the horizontal plane. This horizontally polarized light is seen as white glare and masks light, which is useful to the human eye, reducing visibility. By obstructing normal vision, glare makes everyday activities, such as driving, uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Regular sunglasses do nothing to combat glare and in some cases can impair your vision. They only decrease the amount of visible light entering the eye, which only darkens your view. Good quality polarized lenses enhance your vision. Vertically-aligned filters block the unwanted horizontally polarized light and allow the useful vertical light through to the eye, improving visual clar-ity. The benefits of polarized sunglasses include: reduced glare, less eye fatigue, and enhanced contrasts. Q WHY DO YOU WANT TO GET FIT?

When I got on the scale, I learned I was 4 lbs shy of my goal... but losing 31 lbs. in 5 months was a huge accomplishment for me. I felt like a new person. That day, the scale wasnt my only surprise. While waiting what seemed a lifetime in the exam room, the nurse and doctor both came in and handed me a pregnancy test. It was positive. I learned you CAN reach your ultimate goal, even if you miss some milestones along the way, you just cant ever give up.„ Anita Castillo GISFW Client By Elizabeth JohnsonHave you had the light bulb moment when talking with someone who has overcome personal struggle, achieved professional success, or seems to have mastered balancing ZRUNIDPLO\DQGWQHVV",WVWKHPRPHQWZKHQDOORIDVXGGHQ\RXWKLQN:KDWVVWRSSLQJPHIURPGRLQJWKDW",can do that too!”Those can be pivotal moments in moving you from a pre/contemplative stage of change, or thinking about tak-ing action, to actually setting out a plan and taking steps towards solving your perceived problem.
