Burned 900 or more calo-ries. Sweated buckets. And never left the classroom. Welcome to spin class, that inimitable mix of stop and go, fast and slow, fun and pain. Spinning spun into existence in 1989, thanks to a guy named Jonathan Johnny GŽ Goldberg, a South African ultra-distance cyclist who, while training for a Race Across America, built a prototype sta-tionary bike he could ride in his kitchen, allowing him to spend many fewer hours on the road, more at home with his then-pregnant wife. His riding buddies took to his stay-athome bike and soon enough the concept burst into a fitness phenomenon. For Don Cameron, it wasnt love at first spin, not at all. I play a lot of competitive squash, and I wanted to do more cardio training,Ž he says, minutes before a late-afternoon class at LA Fitness in Palm Beach Gardens. Spinning didnt appeal to me at first. I was looking for that contact sport, not really paying attention to the benefits of spinning.Ž Benefits such as calorie-burn and weight loss and muscle development. Benefits such as cardiovascular health and camaraderie. Once he caught on to Meet the spin master whose class is the hottest in town BY MARY JANE FINEmjfine@floridaweekly.comCAMERON SEE SPIN, A9 X

This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. Got hot wheels? Like to look at hot wheels? The 4th annual car show and museum car and truck show to raise funds for the Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation is March 11 in North Palm Beach. The South East Rods & Customs Cars of Dreams MuseumŽ Car & Truck Show will present the hottest cars and trucks in Florida for a day of family fun. A vast selection of restored classics and new luxury cars will compete for awards in the judged show. Fans can enjoy the free show and will have a special invitation to visit the private Cars of Dreams Museum, hous-ing one of the worlds greatest car col-lections. Rarely open to the public, the museum displays 100 classic cars set in a replica of 1950s Small Town USA. The day also features raffles, a 50/50 drawing, entertainment, food and bev-erages. An exciting addition this year is a raffle for a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Tickets for the raffle are $20 each. The show is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Museum doors, however, are open 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The time of the raffle will be about 3:30 p.m. The Cars of Dreams Museum and the adjacent lot for the show are located on U.S. 1, just south of Northlake Boulevard in North Palm.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, thinks that Iran is a rational actor.Ž He is indisput-ably correct. Tehran couldnt have made itself into the worlds foremost exporter of terror and extended its tentacles throughout the Middle East without resorting to ratio-nal calculation. Thats obvious. What Dempsey is implying, though, is that a regime capable of such calculation can necessarily be deterred if it gets a nuclear weapon. Thats an unsupportable leap. If the Soviets, the famous evil empireŽ bristling with thousands of nuclear weap-ons, could be deterred, why not Iran? The Soviet leadership became more prag-matic over time. After Nikita Khrushchev renounced Josef Stalin, it didnt believe that war with its enemies was imminent and inevitable. Irans religio-ideological fire, in contrast, is still burning hot. From our perspective, there is no point in establishing a theocracy, killing innocents abroad, pursuing sectarian war, crushing protesters, denying the Holo-caust and threatening Israel with annihi-lation, either. From the point of view of the Western liberal tradition, the Islamic Republic itself makes no sense. Yet there it is, withstanding punishing economic sanctions to pursue the weapon that the regime wouldnt want in the first place if it accepted international norms. A highly ideological leadership with a sense of desperate urgency is the enemy of deterrence. In 1941, Dean Acheson rightly said: No rational Japanese could believe an attack on us could result any-thing but disaster.Ž Except the Japanese „ driven by a sense of honor alien to us „ believed that they only had two choices: getting squeezed out of China by the U.S., or launching a risky war. Even in the Cold War, deterrence almost failed. During the Cuban Mis-sile Crisis, the airstrike and invasion pushed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff might well have unwittingly prompted a nuclear exchange. The defense secretary at the time, the late Bob McNamara, maintained that we lucked out.Ž Ah, yes, that crucial backstop to deterrence „ luck. The Israelis can be forgiven for not feeling very lucky. Do we think Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will establish a red telephoneŽ to smooth out misunder-standings after Iran goes nuclear? The Iranian regime is factionalized, and it is sure to be the most fanatical elements that control the nukes. It also is prone to bouts of popular unrest threatening its existence. If the regime ever believes it is going down, national martyrdom might look gloriously alluring. In March 1945, Adolf Hitler gave his infamous Nero Decree, essentially call-ing for the destruction of Germany. After the first U.S. atomic attack on Hiroshima, the Japanese war minister mused about how wonderful it would be if his nation were destroyed like a beautiful flower.Ž It is in this tradition that former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani „ a relative pragmatist „ said that even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.Ž On his own perverse terms, Rafsanjanis reasoning is unassailable. Hes just another rational actor.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. c c c l t R i rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONIran’s terrible rationality GUEST OPINIONMarch is Seagrass Awareness Month KATIE TRIPP, PH.D.Director of Science & ConservationSave the Manatee ClubMarch signals springtime in Florida „ the longer days and warmer weather can create ideal conditions for fishing, kayaking, boating or stand up paddle boarding in Floridas estuaries and other coastal waterways. It is fitting, then, that March is also Seagrass Aware-ness Month because sea-grass beds are such an important component of our coastal waterways. According to a recent report by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-tion Commission, 2.2 mil-lion acres of seagrasses have been documented in Florida waters, providing ecological services worth $20 billion per year. Eco-logical services include habitat values that cannot be measured by a tradi-tional economic scale … i.e. the value of providing habitat to juvenile sport fish or food for manatees and sea turtles. Seagrass beds also pro-vide direct economic benefits to Florida through fishing charters and ecotourism businesses. The condition of Floridas seagrasses varies in different regions. Seagrasses in the Keys are believed to be stable, while those in certain areas of Southwest Florida and the Panhandle are declining. Seagrasses along Floridas east coast have been showing an increasing trend, and South Florida contains nearly 60 percent of the states seagrasses. How-ever, great losses in seagrass abundance in Brevard County in 2011 caused by environmental factors are a reminder that these ecosystems are vulnerable. Seagrasses are found in clear and relatively shallow waters because their growth is fueled by sunlight. Their occurrence in shallow water makes them susceptible to damage by boats that may try to motor through areas without proper clearance, creating prop scarsŽ in the grass beds. A churn-ing propeller cuts not only the blades of the grasses but uproots and destroys the rhizomes (roots) in the sand, and it can take years for the sediment to support regrowth and allow the scars to heal. To prevent prop scarring, boats should stay in marked deep-water channels while traveling. Flat boats fishing in the sea-grass beds should use poles and trolling motors to move through the water, to avoid damaging seagrasses with their engines. If boaters become stuck in a shallow area with seagrss ses or other submerged resources, they should never use the engine to try to blast free. Instead, they should turn off the engine, shift passenger weight distribution in the boat, and try to move the boat using a long pole or oar. If necessary, one or more passengers can exit the boat and push it to deeper water. Boaters should also use polarized sunglasses to reduce glare and help them see resources like seagrasses located beneath the waters sur-face. Seagrasses are negatively affected by storm-water runoff and algae blooms that block the suns rays since they need sunlight to grow. Storm-water runoff to coastal waters can be reduced by creating swales and reten-tion ponds and using per-vious pavement. Limiting use of fertilizers in land-scapes adjacent to coastal waterways can reduce the nutrient loading that con-tributes to algae blooms. All of us who live and recreate in coastal areas can take steps to make our waters cleaner and protect the seagrasses that are so vitally important to our aquatic ecosystem and economy.

She received her Ph.D. in veterinary medical sciences from the University of Florida, where she conducted research on manatee physiology. „ For more information, visit www. savethemanatee.org/seagrass_facts.pdf.

I have come to believe that catching changes and prob-lems early is not only better for my pets but also for my budget. Recently, after just such an exam, I got the news every pet-lover dreads: Theres a spot on the X-ray of my 7-year-old flat-coated retriever. The suspicion? Cancer. Yes, Im devastated. But because the problem was caught on a routine checkup when my dog has no symptoms or other problems, theres a good chance its not the death sen-tence it used to be. Thats because canine cancer is more treatable than ever before, with many dogs living for years after their diagnosis with an excellent quality of life. Of course, its far better to avoid cancer completely, if you can, and here are some ways to reduce the risk: Q Adopt a healthy dog that fits into your lifestyle. If youre considering a purebred dog, know that cancer hits some breeds more than others „ in breeds such as gold-en and flat-coated retrievers and Bernese Mountain dogs, the chances of a dog being diagnosed young with cancer is very high indeed. Mixed breeds can and do get cancer, of course, but in those breeds with elevated cancer risks, the situation is more likely whenŽ your dog will get cancer, not if.Ž While reputable breeders are working hard to reduce those numbers, some now believe sweeping change in breeding practices to introduce outcrossesŽ to closed gene pools will be needed in many breeds. Q Feed your dog a high-quality diet made by a reputable company or a home-prepared diet prepared with the help of your veterinar-ian. Start with the amount of food recom-mended for your dog and adjust accordingly with how your pets body responds. Q Add omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3, found in fish oils and other sources) to potentially reduce the risk of developing cancer. Q Spay or neuter your dog early in life. Spaying and neutering have been shown to be an effective method of preventing cancer. Spaying has a significant effect of preventing breast cancer if it is done before a dog goes into her first heat cycle. Q Keep your dog fit with regular daily exercise. Q Eliminate exposure to environmental carcinogens such as pesticides, coal or kero-sene heaters, herbicides, pas-sive tobacco smoke, asbestos, radiation and strong electro-magnetic fields. Each one of these factors has been suggest-ed to increase the risk of cancer in your dog (and in you). Q Get regular wellness exams for your pet because the earlier cancer is discovered, the more treatment options you have. Yes, I did all those things, and still ... cancer. But I know that even for those dogs that cannot be cured, most that are treated are still able to enjoy an improved, robust life for longer than many would have dreamed possible. In most situations, animals under-going cancer treatment experience limited to no decrease in their quality of life. Almost all dogs with cancer can be helped, with the assistance of a good veterinary team. That, and money. Which is why I cant tell you how very grateful I am today that I have long believed in and paid for pet health insurance. Because along with the savings Ive set aside for just this sort of veterinary crisis, the decisions Ill be making will be for my dogs quality of life only, and not because I cant afford to treat her.

Mr. Isakin Jonsson (the Skara CannibalŽ) was convicted of killing, decapitating and eating his girlfriend, and Michelle Gustafsson (the Vampire WomanŽ) was convicted of killing a father of four and drinking his blood. Said the love-struck Mr. Jonsson (certainly truthfully), to the newspaper Expressen, I have never met anyone like (Michelle).Ž The pair will almost certainly remain locked up for-ever, but Ms. Gustafsson, on the Inter-net, wrote that she hopes they will be released, to live together and have dogs and pursue our hobbies, piercing and tattoos.ŽGhosts in the newsQ Michael West, 41, of Fond du Lac, Wis., at first said his wife hurt herself by falling, but finally acknowledged that she was attacked „ but by ghosts, not by him. (He was charged, anyway, in Janu-ary.) Q Anthony Spicer, 29, was sentenced in January in Cincinnati after being discov-ered at an abandoned school among cop-per pipes that had been cut. He denied prosecutors assertions that he was col-lecting scrap metal „ because he said he was actually looking for ghosts, since the school is supposed to be haunted.Ž IroniesQ The 547-acre FBI Academy on the grounds of Quantico (Va.) Marine Base houses a firing range on which about a million bullets a month are shot by agents in training, but it also happens to be a de facto wildlife refuge for the simple fact that the academy is off-limits to Virginia hunters. Thus, according to a December ABC News dispatch, deer learn that, despite the gunfire (some-times at astonishingly close range as they wander by the targets), none of them ever gets hit. The academy is also a sanctuaryŽ for foxes, wild turkeys and other critters. Q Equity Lifestyle Properties of Chicago fired receptionist Sharon Smiley after 10 years service because she vio-lated company policy by declining to stop working during her lunch hour. (The companys strict policy is apparently based on avoiding liability for overtime pay, but Smiley had in fact clocked out for lunch while remaining at her desk.) Ms. Smiley subsequently applied for unem-ployment benefits, but the administrator denied them because the firing was for insubordination. However, in January, a state appeals court granted the benefits. Q A South Carolina circuit court ruled in December that the sales contract on a former theater in downtown Laurens, S.C., was binding and that the rightful owner is the African-American-head-ed New Beginning Missionary Baptist Church „ even though the propertys only current tenant is the Redneck Shop, which features Confederacy and Ku Klux Klan merchandise. (New Beginning pur-chased the church in 1997 from a Klan member who was unloading it because of a personal rift with the head klansman who wanted it back after they recon-ciled.)Latest human rightsLibrarians typically can shush patrons whose conversation disturbs others, but, at least in Washington state, librarians are powerless to prevent another dis-turbanceŽ „ when a pornography users computer screen disgusts other library patrons who inadvertently glimpse it. A visitor to the Seattle Public Library complained in February that the librar-ian said she was bound by a 2010 state supreme court decision upholding the right of consumers of otherwise-legal pornography not to be censored.Non-humans’ human rightsQ Elena Zakharova of New York City became the most recent litigant to chal-lenge a state law that regards pets as propertyŽ (and that, thus, the owner of an injured or disfigured pet is entitled to no more consideration than for a defec-tive appliance). She sued a pet store that had sold her a dog with allegedly bum knees and hips, claiming that dogs are living creatures that feel love and pain, that have souls, and that should be compensated for their pain and suffering. The case is pending. Q In February, a federal judge in San Diego, Calif., heard arguments by Peo-ple for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that SeaWorld was confining its show whales in violation of the U.S. Con-stitutions 13th Amendment (the Civil War-era prohibition of slavery). Two days later, he ruled that the amendment applies only to human slavery. Q Compelling explanationsQ In December, music teacher Kevin Gausepohl, 37, was charged in Tacoma, Wash., Municipal Court with commu-nicating with a minor for immoral pur-poses, allegedly convincing a 17-year-old female student that she could sing better if she tried it naked. Mr. Gausepohl later told an investigator of his excitement about experimenting at the human par-ticipant levelŽ to determine how sexual arousal affects vocal range. The girl complied with some ofŽ Mr. Gausepohls requests, but finally balked and turned him in. Q Rock Dagenais, 26, pleaded guilty recently to weapons charges after creat-ing a siege by bringing a knife, a sawed-off rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition to a Quebec elementary school. He eventually surrendered peacefully and said he was only trying to send the kids a message not to disrespect each other by bullying.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSELLINGFrom page A1 YOUR AD HERErightsŽ on state-owned property to public or private interests. All they have to do is pass four proposed bills, the brainchild of Rep. Irv Slosberg, a Democrat from Boca Raton. For those who read English but remain uninitiated in American cul-ture, naming rightsŽ is not listed in the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution, nor is it the vision of the Founding Fathers. But it remains a nearly sacrosanct concept used synonymously with the term, ad space.Ž What kind of property should be used for ad space? Anything the state of Florida owns that we could possibly sell,Ž Rep. Slosberg told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel recently. Im an entre-preneur, I know how to generate revenue,Ž he added confidently, speaking to the Miami Herald. No, that does not mean selling off state employees, in spite of what some may wish. But it could mean selling ad space where they work and on what they drive. Its innovative thinking,Ž says Rep. Aubuchon, proving not only that hes capable of bipartisan thought but of listening to the other fellows idea, whatever it is. Rep. Aubuchon, after all, is a Cape Coral Republican and influential House leader now in the hotly contested race for Rep. Connie Macks seat in the U.S. House of Rep-resentatives.The proposed bills themselvesHundreds of millions of dollars are at stake, and in tough economic times, too. Nevertheless, Rep. Slosbergs initial suggestions show some restraint. House Bills 19, 181, 185 and 1137, sponsored either by Rep. Slosberg himself or by him in tandem with a colleague (see www.myfloridahouse.gov) specifically propose selling naming rights to the following: State highways, toll roads, toll plazas and rest areas. State greenways and bike trails, too, not to mention the sides of school buses and school cafeterias, are ripe for the pitch, in Rep. Slos-bergs view. And for a few hundred million dollars „ Rep. Slosberg has estimated $600 million in a year „ why not? In our economic tightness right now, it seems like some of (this) might be a good idea,Ž says Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, a Naples Republican, another bipartisan think-er and a member of the Southwest Florida legislative delegation. Like her and the Republicans who dominate the legislature, Rep. Slosberg is not in favor of raising taxes, he has said. Instead, hes in favor of mak-ing money the old-fashioned American way: by selling something. Two of the bills „ HB 19 and HB 181 (school buses and greenways and trails, respectively) „ had already moved through the subcommittee pro-cess in the House at press time, and HB 19 passed in a 108-7 vote on Feb. 29. Part of the appeal of these bills is that they create advertising as an option by local governments or school districts, and not as a mandate. Not only that, but they stipulate guidelines: Signs are limited to a maximum size „ 6 feet by 2 feet, or smaller, depend-ing on the venue. And (in the case of would-be advertising on school buses), there would be no promotion of such products as alcohol or tobacco on school buses or in school cafeterias. As a final plus, money collected from the selling of ad space on public properties would be used to help pay the costs of maintaining those proper-ties „ roads and facilities, parks and bike paths, schools. Advertising on government property is not a new concept,Ž explains Rep. Aubuchon. For example, when youre driving and you exit the interstate, you often see blue signs „ theyre called logo signs, with the names of nearby businesses (restaurants, motels, gas stations, food stores). Thats a form of private-market advertising that helps add money to the transportation bud-get. So Rep. Slosbergs concept is taking that a step further. It does raise the question: At what point is it too much? But taxes are high enough. This is a way in which the private sector can contribute to the overall revenue stream of state and local governments, through advertising. I feel its a reason-able idea if its done in a tasteful way.ŽNot so fast, palBut one persons reasonable may be another persons ridiculous. Some citizens have serious reservations about the name-for-money game on public property. I am extremely opposed to the advertising on school buses. Is noth-ing sacred? Kids are bombarded with advertising everywhere. Its going to be overload,Ž says Denise LeBlanc, ESOL coordinator at Forest Hill High School in West Palm Beach. There is another side to that.Katie Deits, executive director at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Teques-ta, says she conditionally might sup-port the advertising. It depends on where the money is going. If it were going to help teachers buy supplies for their class-rooms, I would be all for it,Ž she says. Teachers have to pay for their own supplies and are not reimbursed. Our economy depends on good schools.Ž And it depends on the type of advertising. I wouldnt want anything that is unhealthful for the children or harm-ful to the county. Nothing dishonest or unhealthy,Ž she says. I honestly dont think its a bad idea. Ive been thinking I want an artmobile. Heck, if someone wanted to sponsor one, Id plaster their name all over the side of it.Ž Ms. LeBlanc also frets about HB 181. I think they should name everything after a conservationist. I dont want to be walking down American Airlines Avenue, thank you very much,Ž she says, referring to a 1993 vote in which Delray Beach allowed groups and individuals to pay to rename streets „ Northeast Eighth Street became George Bush Boule-vard, for example. Its just this ber-commercialization of everything. Doesnt every American have a TV?Ž Tequesta artist and former political science instructor David Willison is pragmatic. If you fill every public space with advertising, what does that say about our private space? You really cant go anywhere without seeing advertis-ing,Ž he says. I was watching the Honda Classic the other day on TV, and the golf-ers were covered in advertising,Ž Mr. Willison says, musing that years ago Jack Nicklaus had his own Golden Bear line of clothes, but there was little else, logo-wise. The logo-ization of America is such that everyone in America is like a stock car,Ž he says. One question posed by many who are considering Rep. Slosbergs proposal is pragmatic: What about state-owned properties that already have names, like the Ronald Reagan Turnpike? No problem.Rep. Slosberg suggests leaving honorary names on such properties but simply adding the names of spon-sors. Another problem would be how to sell the rights and how much to sell them for. Prices have not been suggested, but lease requirements have: a minimum of a year, for posted signs. Advertising on school buses might be more temporary. If the state follows through on Rep. Slosbergs bill proposals, he estimates a $600 million windfall. We are floating in red ink; we need it,Ž he said recently, referring to the states estimated $3.5 billion defi-cit while speaking to a daily newspa-per. Q „ Staff writer Scott Simmons contributed to this report.

Six years of teaching so far and seven days a week now, three of them at LA Fitness and the others at Powerhouse Gym in West Palm. But spinning is not the only activity that occupies his time. He also oper-ates a We Buy Ugly Houses franchise in Palm Beach County „ buying, renovat-ing and reselling houses, a practice that acquired a rather nega-tive image, early on, for flipping,Ž meaning buy-ing a house solely to sell it for profit. But, says Mr. Cameron: My theory is different. I buy a prop-erty with the understand-ing that I will renovate it from top to bottom and make sure that home is better than any in the neighborhood. We buy any house in any condi-tion, typically between $100,000 and $300,000.Ž On this day, his focus is on spinning. And on this day, as every day, his class is full: 39 ardent cyclists astride 39 stationary bikes. Two long rows of bikes stretch the length of the room, two shorter rows at either end. Mr. Cameron mounts his bike, facing them. He fiddles with the knobs on the sound system to his right. Cranks the music up to FULL BLAST. Barks into his headset microphone: Keep those knees in tight! Start pulling those shoulders in! Is the front row ready?Ž WooOOoo!Ž howls the group.Is the back row ready?WooOOoo!ŽAnd theyre off, pedaling, pumping, standing, sitting, leaning onto the handlebars. Spinning uses three basic positions and multiple permutations of speed and resistance for sprints and climbs. This is not a class for slackers. Standing tall!Ž Mr. Cameron calls out. The group is upright now, backs straight, fannies off bike seats. A little taller! All right, guys, were gonna move it into Position Three.Ž They hunker forward, as if pressing for an imaginary finish line, heads low, knees churning. The music pounds with an intensity that matches their own. You got it! Stay with me, Nancy! All right, Mitchell!Ž He knows every name, routinely calls out praise and encouragement. His stu-dents could double for his fan club. Justin Garcia is a buff 55, could pass, easily, for a decade or two younger. Some instructors put you out there on the road,Ž he says, meaning they have you picture yourself grinding along a highway, but with (Don), its like a dance party.Ž The payoff? Mr. Garcia offers a wide grin. Ill repeat it,Ž he says. Im 55 years old. I lead a healthy life.Ž Nicolette Anderson is high on energy and high on spinning, too. I can tell you, after I spin and I go home, my face is lit up,Ž she says, beaming a satisfied smile. I like what it does for my body, my legs, my glutes.Ž At 48, shes anoth-er one who looks a generation younger. Accelerate!Ž Mr. Cameron orders, raising an arm. Seconds later, he lowers it, the motion like an orchestra conduc-tors for softer, quieter. Decelerate! Burn those calories!Ž WooOOoo!Ž comes the chorus.Fifteen minutes into the hour-long workout, a sheen of perspiration glis-tens on bare arms, T-shirts darken with patches of sweat. The white-haired Mr. Cameron is a bit out of breath, but only a bit. People 25 ƒ 35 ƒ 45 ƒ 55 years old see me teaching and they know Im older,Ž he has said earlier. Just how old is carefully guarded knowledge. My typical answer is, When it comes to age, weight and height, you have to ask my doctor.Ž Still, he says, his seniority is a motivator: They say to themselves, Boy, if he can do it, I can do it.Ž He can. They can. And they do. The idea is to simulate the real thing, a bike ride through all manner of terrain. Easy glides and uphill slogs. Smooth going and tough stuff. A flywheel controls the bikes resistance. A loose flywheel brake means easy pedaling; the tighter it gets, the greater diffi-culty pedaling. Mr. Camerons classes mix beginners with seasoned cyclists. One new spinner has joined todays class. A half-hour in, shes the one with the reddest cheeks. Still, shes keeping up, not giving up. There is, Mr. Cameron says, a built-in competitiveness in these classes. We urge every person to go at their own pace,Ž says Ben Johnson, the fitness centers general manager, until they can be at the same pace as the instructor.Ž Don Cameron, he notes, is the most popular instruc-tor we have. A line forms for his classes a half-hour before class begins.Ž Eloise Zeeman admits to having serious doubts before she stood in that line. A yoga teacher at LA Fitness whose sassy twin ponytails belie her age „ shes 50 „ she recalls striding past Mr. Camerons door with disdain. I thought it was most annoying. Noisy. I thought, Whats wrong with those people? Why are they screaming?Ž Then she tried it. Now, shes one of those WooOOoo screamers herself. Hes the most inspiring person,Ž she says of Mr. Cameron. The line for his class goes around the block.Ž The noise Ms. Zeeman speaks of, the noise that envelopes the cyclists and pours from the classroom, is specially selected music. It thumps. It pounds. It pushes. Like a choreographer, Mr. Cameron underscores movement with rhythmic sound: Thus Spoke Zarathustra,Ž the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey;Ž Nickelbacks When We Stand Together;Ž Adeles Set Fire to the Rain;Ž and „ a favorite of his, a mantra „ Electric Light Orchestras Dont Bring Me Down.Ž Midway through the class, droplets of sweat polka-dot the floor beneath the bikes. Breathing grows heavier. Eyes squeeze shut, and smiles turn to gri-maces. Now, as the cyclists pain levels become apparent, the music encour-ages them to press on. It rushes on „ loud, louder „ and so do they. Pick it up!Ž he calls. Pick it up? Where is UP from here? But then a rest. Just a few seconds, but enough, until they stand again, sit again, hunker forward again and pedal, pedal, pedal. Natalie Marshall, a native of Trinidad, has been Mr. Camerons student for four years. She is, he says, one of the best athletes Ive run into in years.Ž He is, she says, a Caribbean lilt to her voice, a perfectionist.Ž And more: Hes great. Don gets it out of you. You dont feel like youre exercising. You feel like youre dancing.Ž She discovered his class, as she says, the way others did, going to the gym, and you hear this music and you see how full his classes are and you want to be part of that.Ž Caught up in the moment, in the music, the cyclists pedal on and on. Cmon!Ž Mr. Cameron barks. Spin with me!Ž Q SPINFrom page A1 COURTESY PHOTO In addition to teaching a spin class, Don Cameron owns a We Buy Ugly Houses franchise.

Ms. Tec is professor emerita of sociology at the University of Connecti-cut, Stamford and received her Ph.D. from Columbia University. She is the author of six books on the Holocaust, one of which was made into the movie Defiance.Ž Her upcoming work on the Holocaust, At the Edge of Nowhere: Christian and Jewish Resistance during World War II,Ž will be a comparative study of Christian and Jewish resistance to the Nazis.

Jana pulled the pillow around her head tighter, praying the baby would go back to sleep or her husband, Steve, would get up, just this once. She knew he had an important meeting with his biggest client first thing in the morning, but, frankly, shed had it. She was overwhelmed and exhausted, and lately, it seemed like he hadnt followed through with any of his promises to help out more. She was tired and cranky and it didnt take much for the two of them to get caught in an argument or to retreat in stony silence. During her pregnancy, Jana and Steve had anticipated becoming new parents with great excitement. They had smugly considered themselves to be among the most enlightenedŽ of their professional friends. They prided themselves on having not only a passionate bond but a strong, respectful friendship. Both had worked hard to succeed in their respective careers and brainstormed tirelessly to come up with a solution that would respect each others roles and aspirations. They pledged to support each other as they faced the inevitable challenges of becoming new parents. After much deliberation, Jana decided it would make sense to take a leave of absence from her position. Steve had agreed that being a stay-at-home mother was a full-time job, in and of itself, and that he would actively participate with her in the child-care and household responsibilities. What they could not have anticipated was the impact that life events, stress, hormones and fatigue would have on their intentions.Sadly, there are many studies that have documented a decrease in marital satisfaction after the arrival of a baby. The transition to parenthood can be stressful and frightening to even the most well-adjusted couples. In a mat-ter of months, the partners face major adjustments to their individual, rela-tionship and career roles at a time when they are getting less sleep and limited quality time to be alone together. Despite well-thought-out preparations, most couples have difficulty anticipating the wide range of feel-ings theyll experience as they attempt to stay intimately connected to their partner, while bonding with the baby. Although todays couples often profess to be more egalitarian in accepting parental roles, they may not anticipate how one or both of them will begin to shift into more traditional roles. Each feels misunderstood, and resents the other for not understanding their stresses and fears. The mother may have difficulty relinquishing some of her maternal ministra-tions to her partner, believing he will not be as effective as she in tending to the baby. If he assumes some of the responsibilities, she may feel that in some way shes slacked off. She may feel bewildered or frightened by the hormonal surges or fatigue. She may be conflicted about choices between career and motherhood, and resent the polarized messages or judgments she receives from family, friends and col-leagues about the decision she made. The new father may immerse himself into his career, convinced this is the most dedicated step he can take for the well-being of the family. He may become resentful when asked to take on child-care duties when he feels overwhelmed and needs to unwind. He may feel guilty if he doesnt ultimately embrace the additional responsibilities he enthusiastically promised to assume. When a couple divvies up their waking hours to focus on baby, work, house-hold and errands, whats often left for grabs is the amount of time left over for their personal needs or each other. Much of the time, theres little energy or interest for their intimate lives. They may find themselves short-tempered, working against each other, rather than collaboratively. Each may feel hurt and resentful when their partner seems unappreciative of the efforts they DO make. Understandably, this compromis-es their closeness and affection. Rather than focus on the discouraging stresses new parents often face, we should take this opportunity to high-light the steps motivated couples take to ensure their intimacy and connection at a time in their lives that can prove to be enormously gratifying. When couples stay mindful of the fact that they would like to remain best friends and support each other in a lov-ing way throughout, they can commit to relating to each other openly and respectfully. They can approach their problems as an ongoing joint challenge. Taking the time to put themselves in the others shoes and agreeing to listen without judgment should create a cli-mate of shared collaboration. Letting each other know they are interested in the others daily challenges, whether mundane or complex, adds to the inti-macy and goodwill. If the new mother finds she is weepy and despondent, it may be due to hor-monal post-partum changes. Consulting with her physician at this time is cru-cial, as there are medical and psycho-social supportive interventions that can offer huge relief. Getting enough sleep, eating properly and staying physically healthy is important. A baby can bring tremendous joy when couples work together to anticipate and head off the minefields that stand in their way.

Advanced cardiac care: It takes a team mike COWLINGCEO, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center During a heart attack, the heart can literally stop beating; however, lives can be saved when the pulse of the Emergency Medical System and hospi-tal teams are in sync and ready to act quickly. Fast response is key, which is why we have been using an advanced EMS communication, the LIFENET System, since 2008. The LIFENET System offers us critical additional minutes to prepare our team for appropriate intervention even before the patient arrives. EMS and our hospital team work together to help patients get the cardiac treatment they need quicker. With this technology and collaboration, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has been able to reduce time to treatment, known as door-to-balloon time (D2B), for patients who experi-ence a dangerous type of heart attack known as STEMI. There are two kinds of heart attacks. The STEMI, or ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, is the more severe type that is identified by an electrocardiogram (ECG) test. During a STEMI, the coronary artery is com-pletely blocked by a blood clot and essentially all the heart muscle being supplied by the artery begins to die. The American Heart Association estimates that close to 400,000 people in the U.S. experience STEMI every year. The quicker patients receive treatment, which may include balloon angioplasty and stent placement in the cardiac cath-eterization lab, the more likely they are to have a positive outc ome. D2B is a measurement in emergency cardiac care that starts with the patients arrival in the emergency department and ends when a catheter is inserted, restoring blood flow to the heart. The AHA and American College of Cardiology recommend a guideline of treatment in 90 minutes or less. At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, we are consistently performing with a D2B time of less than 60 minutes. We are firmly committed to exceed-ing even the maximum recommended D2B time, which means quicker care for our patients and a better chance for improved o utc omes. Much of this success can be attributed to our collabora-tion with local EMS and the LIFENET System. This is just one example of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers advanced approach to our communitys heart care. With its combined efforts, we ranked in the top 5 percent in the Nation for Overall Cardiac Services by Health-Grades, and also received the Get With The Guidelines„Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the AHA. We encourage you to learn more about cardiac care at our hospital.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 A17 The Max Planck Florida Foundation is ramping up its operations in anticipation of the summer 2012 open-ing of the Max Planck Florida Insti-tutes 100, 000-square-foot biomedical research facility on Florida Atlantic Universitys MacArthur Campus in Jupiter. Established in the fall of 2010, the foundation is tasked with raising funds to support the scientific mis-sion, objectives and programs of MPFI, which is the sole U.S.-based institute of Germanys pres-tigious Max Planck Society. Our first few years in South Florida have been truly remarkable. We have brought world-class scientists to the area, including our CEO and scien-tific director, Dr. David Fitzpatrick, and have established programs to enhance science education locally, such as the Brain Bee Challenge and the public lecture series,Ž said Dr. Claudia Hill-inger, MPFIs vice president of insti-tute development and president of the foundation. If we are to continue this momentum and propel our potentially world-changing research forward in the coming decades, its vital that we con-tinue to strengthen and expand the reach of the foundation.Ž The foundation recently appointed Stephanie Langlais as director of major gifts. The foundations board of directors is chaired by George T. Elmore, founder and president of Hardrives Inc., who is also the first $1 million contributor to the capital campaign. Patricia B. Lester, co-owner of a Florida-based private investment firm, serves as secretary; and Erik Joh, of Cypress Trust, serves as treasurer. Additional members of the board of directors are Mark W. Cook of Royal Palm Management; Frank J. Folz III of Airspan Networks Inc.; Kenneth Kahn, president of LRP Publications; Michael V. Mitrione, of Gunster; and Gregory V. Novak of Novak Druce + Quigg, LLP and HalberdCross Private Equity. In 2011, the foundation created a steering committee specifically tasked with supporting a capital campaign. Although MPFI was established through funding from the State of Florida, Palm Beach County and the Town of Jupiter, after a 10-year period it will become dependent on philanthropy, grants and commercial activities in order to under-write its annual operating budget in the future. The goal of the Frontiers Campaign is to build an initial endowment of $40 million that will serve as the foundation of the permanent endowment needed to ensure the instit utes fu ture su ccess, and raise and additional $10 million toward equipment for the new building. The steering committee is chaired by board member Mark Cook and includes fellow board members Frank Folz, Michael Mitrione, Kenneth Kahn, as well as R.Adm. Phil Whitacre, Ray S. Celedinas, president and CEO of Celedinas Insurance Group, Michael J. Bracci of Northern Trust and Elizabeth Neuhoff. Our committee believes strongly in the work being done at the Max Planck Florida Institute,Ž said Mr. Cook. Researchers are using innovative tech-nologies to explore the neural circuits in the brain at the level necessary to achieve major advancements in the understanding and treatment of neu-rological disorders. Targeted disorders include Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Hun-tingtons, autism and schizophrenia.Ž The foundation has also launched a Friends Program that includes business and community leaders from around the state and beyond. They held their first event in January that included a tour of the new building in Jupiter. The foundation also recently announced a partnership with the Quan-tum Foundation to sponsor a series of private receptions in conjunction with the MPFI winter lecture series. The second season of the popular series is currently underway. On March 27, Dr. Sami Solanki, director at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany, will discuss the mysteries of the sun. On the addition of Ms. Langlais, Dr. Hillinger said: As our director of major gifts, Stephanie will play a key role in the success of our current capital cam-paign and of all the foundations work going forward. We have no doubt that her strong track record in all aspects of fundraising will be an enormous asset as we continue to plan for the future.Ž In her new role, Ms. Langlais is responsible for directing, managing and coordinating all activities related to the procurement of major gifts, including individual donations. She will also work on building strategic donor recognition programs through the creation of mul-tiple giving societies. Prior to joining the foundation, Ms. Langlais spent 14 years in the insurance industry, working her way from the agency side of the business to under-writing, before transitioning her career into the nonprofit arena. Most recently, she was the director of donor development for the Palm Beaches-Treasure Coast Region of the American Red Cross. For more information, see mpffoundation.org. Q Max Planck Florida Foundation ramps up for opening and names new director of major giftsSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLANGLAIS COURTESY PHOTO George Elmore and Claudia Hillinger Scripps Florida scientists have been awarded $3.1 million by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, part of the National Institutes of Health, to study and develop several new compounds that could prove to be effective in con-trolling pain without the unwanted side effects common with opiate drugs, such as morphine, Oxycontin and Vicoden. Laura Bohn, an associate professor in the Department of Molecular Thera-peutics and Neuroscience at Scripps Research, and Thomas Bannister, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and associate scientific director in the Translational Research Institute at Scripps Research, will serve as joint principal investigators for the new five-year study. Their study will focus on four new classes of com-pounds that appear to differ fundamen-tally from opiates in the side effects that they can produce. Once we more fully understand how these com-pounds work, we expect to optimize and develop them as novel drugs,Ž said Ms. Bohn. We hope to produce potent pain relievers with-out the problems associated with cur-rent treatments.Ž The adverse side effects of morphine and other opiate drugs can range from the uncomfortable „ constipation „ to the dangerous „ addiction, respiratory suppression and death by overdose. While the new compounds bind and activate the same receptor as morphine „ the mu opioid receptor or MOR „ they do so in a way that avoids recruit-ing the protein beta arrestin 2. Genetic studies have shown that animal mod-els lacking beta-arrestins experience robust pain relief with diminished side effects. In an encouraging sign for further development, compounds in the four chemical classes have already been syn-thesized by Mr. Bannisters medicinal chemistry group. We designed compounds intended to have biological activity in the brain,Ž said Mr. Bannister. While we expected to find pain relievers, we were thrilled to see that some compounds also had the chemical and biological properties necessary for showing reduced side effects. The added financial support should help us build upon these excit-ing results and identify safer pain medi-cations.Ž The Scripps Research Institute is one of the worlds largest independent, non-profit biomedical research organiza-tions. Scripps Research is internationally recognized for its discoveries in immu-nology, molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, neuroscience and vaccine development, as well as for its insights into autoimmune, cardiovascular and infectious diseases. Based in La Jolla, Calif., the institute also includes a cam-pus in Jupiter where scientists focus on drug discovery and technology devel-opment in addition to basic biomedical science.

The modern celebration on March 17 is a religious holiday in Ireland, with church in the morning, then a parade and dancing, eating and drinking later in the day. American collectors are beginning to look for decorations and memorabilia from St. Patricks Day, often to join their more popular Christmas and Halloween collectibles. Get started on a St. Patricks Day collection before it gains on the other holidays. Look for green, the holidays color. From about 1910 to 1930, holiday candy containers were made in Germany out of cardboard or composition. A green pig, an Irishmans head topped by a tradi-tional hat, and children dressed in Irish costumes were popular shapes. There are many St. Patricks Day postcards from the 1910s and 1920s, too, and Avery Dennison and other companies made green crepe paper and cutouts for holiday tables. In the 1920s, the Japanese also made St. Pat-ricks Day memorabilia featuring the tra-ditional shamrock, leprechaun and pipe. More recent holiday pieces include a red-haired Irish Madame Alexander doll, a green Fenton glass set of bears with bow-ties and shamrocks and even a limited-edi-tion Longaberger basket. A 2005 Boston Red Sox green jersey, a Guinness T-shirt, a Franklin Mint sword and a Hamms beer stein all date from after the 1960s. Most of these items are still inexpensive. And most of them will be found not at auctions but at ephemera shows, garage sales and flea markets. Happy St. Patricks Day. Q: You recently wrote about the dangers of using old baby cribs. Can you explain? I have the one I slept in as a baby in 1942. I have that crib set up for my 10-month-old granddaughter for naps. Is the crib safe?A: Your old crib is not safe. Nearly every crib made before about 10 years ago is not safe. The problems include slats that are too far apart, which can trap a babys head. Slats should be closer than 2 inches apart. Drop sides can crash down and throw a standing toddler onto the floor or trap a baby against the mat-tress. And many early cribs are covered in lead paint. A child chewing on the rails could swallow paint chips and get lead poisoning. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissions homepage (CPSC.gov) has a CribsŽ link that provides all the safety information you need. Some collectors use old cribs to hold dolls or stuffed animals. It is illegal to sell old cribs.Q: Back in 1968, I bought a grandfather clock for $275. The plywood cabinet is 75 inches tall and 19 inches wide. Its marked F. ReschŽ inside and is also signed Resch.Ž The brass orna-ments on the case were made in Italy. What can you tell me?A: Your clock was made in Austria by Gebruder Resch (Resch Brothers), a clockmaking firm that oper-ated in Vienna from 1862 to 1871, then in Ebensee, Austria, from 1871 to 1901. Its production peaked in the mid 1880s, when it made 12,000 to 15,000 clocks a year. Today your clock would sell for a price in the thousands. Keep it in good working order.Q: I would like to know the start and stop dates when items were marked Peo-ples Republic of China,Ž Occupied JapanŽ and U.S. ZoneŽ (on German china).A: The presence of a country name on a piece of china helps date the piece. After the passage of the McKinley Tar-iff Act in 1891, china and other goods imported into the United States had to be marked with the country of origin. However, only one piece of a set of china had to be marked and some pieces were marked with a paper label, which could easily fall off. The mark Made in [name of country]Ž usually means the item was made after 1915. Beginning in 1921, the country name had to be written in Eng-lish. At the end of World War II, some new marks were used. The words Occu-pied JapanŽ indicate that a piece was made in Japan betw een 1947 and 1952 when Allied forces occupied the country after World War II. Items marked U.S. ZoneŽ were made in Germany between 1945 and 1949, when Germany was divid-ed into four Allied occupation zones. The Peoples Republic of China was established on Oct. 1, 1949, and still is in existence. Tip: Forged glass signatures, including Steuben, Quezal and Tiffany, are appearing on newer glass. This has been true for years. Do not trust a signature. Be sure the glass is the proper shape and type to have been produced by the origi-nal factory. Some fake marks are written with a diamond-tipped drill; some are acid-stamped. All look real.„ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Ocean Properties The groundwork is being laid for construction of the new Jewish commu-nity center, to be known as the Mandel JCC, on Hood Road just west of Central Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. The effort has received a major boost with a $1 million gift, announced Feb. 28, from Bente S. Lyons and the late Daniel Lyons of Palm Beach Gardens. The new buildings gallery will be named the Bente and Daniel Lyons Gal-lery. The glass-enclosed space will be used for art presentations, receptions, meetings and other events. It will be part of a 56,000-squarefoot building and complex named for the JCCs major benefactor, the Mandel Foundation „ Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel „ which provided a $5 million grant toward the $16 million project. Mrs. Lyons said her husband had given $500,000 to the JCC campaign before he died in April 2011 and that afterward, she decided to make an additional gift to create something that would have pleased him and be named after the couple, thus the gallery. We have believed in the JCC mission and in working for the future all our lives,Ž she said, and we thought that a JCC up north on Hood Road would be the best solutionŽ for the communitys needs. The Lyonses are true mensches in every sense of the word,Ž said Paul Gross, JCC of the Palm Beaches presi-dent. They were among the first com-mitted to building the new JCC, without even seeing renderings, just recognizing that our community needed a Jewish community center.Ž We thought the JCC was really important,Ž Mrs. Lyons said. She said she and her late husband had supported the JCC in Rockville, Md., while their children, Lisa and Joshua, were growing up, and that she took them there often. I have very fond memories of that JCC,Ž she said. The family lived in the Washington, D.C., area for 25 years before moving to Naples in 1983, where they lived for eight years until moving to Palm Beach Gardens. The Lyonses have ever since been leaders with the Jewish Federa-tion of Palm Beach County, JCCs part-ner organization; the Anti-Defamation League; American Israel Public Affairs Committee; the Center for Jewish Edu-cation; Jewish Family & Childrens Ser-vice; and Temple Beth David. Mr. Gross said the Lyonses gift is the fourth of $1 million to the fund-raising campaign and that pledges so far have reached $13 million. He noted that there are oppor-tunities for people who dont have as much to share to get their names included in the rolls of givers: Were setting up a whole series of (dedications); we recently sold the flagpole dedication for $18,000, and we have classrooms that run $50,000 and so on.Ž A third prong of the money-raising campaign will be the selling of bricks for $250 to $500 to $1,000, putting the persons name on the brick, or their grandchildrens names or whatever they want to put on it,Ž Mr. Gross said. There will be a patio area specifically for that.Ž Mrs. Lyons has been named honorary chairwoman of that effort, which will begin this spring; Michael Falk serves as chairman. The patio will be near the aquatic complex to be built alongside the new Mandel JCC main building, which will contain an 11,000-square-foot, double-size gymnasium with two basketball courts; an early-childhood learning cen-ter and summer day camp space to handle up to 150 children at a time; and rooms for functional fitness and group fitness courses, including Pilates, Zumba and yoga. The JCC will offer adult pro-grams, bridge games, lectures and chil-drens programs as well, including some for those with special needs. The site will include sports fields and a ropes course, too. Mr. Gross said that the very large aquatics center will be able to han-dle 400 children at a time, with appro-priate game areas, a lap pool, an area for infants and an area for special-needs children as well.Ž He said that plans are moving along apace toward a groundbreaking sometime in late May or June. Weve signed contracts for everything, but the closings wont take place until some-time in April. In the meantime, the architect, Rene Ter-cilla (of Tercilla Courtmanche Archi-tects Inc. of West Palm Beach), is final-izing the detailed plan, giving it to contractors, and we will probably let it out to bid within 30 to 45 days. We hope to get our approvals from Palm Beach Gardens sometime at the end of May, at which time we would stick a shovel in the ground immediately thereafter. The idea is that wed start in June, and theres a lot of site work to be done, bringing the utilities in, but we would be finished and open for business in May of 2013. Thats our target date.Ž For more information about the Mandel JCC and its capital campaign, call the JCC at 689-7700, visit its office at 4803 PGA Blvd., or go to jcconline.com/mandel.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Ive noticed an alarming trend in mens facial hair recently: theres a lot more of it. The overgrowth started a few years ago when the Don Johnson look first made its comeback. Men were showing up with five oclock shadows at nine in the morning, and they embraced a permanent state of scruff that made them look like theyd just come off a hard drunk. Their cheeks felt like sandpaper, but I have to admit: There was something sexy about the rugged unkemptness. But this latest trend in mens facial hair fashion goes too far. Im talking about the growths men are sporting these days „ the mustaches and beards that make them look like they just came out of the woods. And not from an over-night camping trip, but from a survival-ist stint that ran three months too long. Their beards are untidy, sparse in places and overly thick in others, as if theyve never encountered a pair of scissors. Or, God forbid, an electric trimmer. Im always sure those beards are hiding something „ pieces of string, bits of scrambled egg, small dogs or young children. I spent Saturday night at a bar downtown in a dimly lit space where the young crowd likes to congregate. It was the kind of place where the women wore $100 sweaters meant to look like they came from a second-hand store and the men had on Im-not-wearing-this-ironically ironic berets. This is how I know Im getting older: when I look at the generation currently au courant and think, God, they look awful.Ž I surveyed the young women in their frumpy hipster clothes, their bright red lips and hair that looked like it hadnt been washed in weeks, and I noticed one sitting in the corner just as she reached up to pull the face of the man next to her down for a kiss. He wore a p laid b utton-do wn and black square-framed glasses, the de facto uni-form of male writers and graphic designers (men who work from coffee shops). He also sported a thick black beard. I wanted to turn aside but couldnt. I stared as the woman worked her fingers into the patchy hair on the mans face. I thought of unwashed bodies, day-old grease and the way that guy in college smelled after he stopped shaving and started wearing his hair in dreads. It was all I could do to look away before his beard ate her face. Look, I know the problem lies with me and not with the men embracing this trend. Even Bradley Cooper rocked a bushy mustache and scruffy cheek stub-ble at the Oscars. If People Magazines Sexiest Man Alive decides to grow out his facial hair, the look cant be all bad. And from what Ive seen in hipster hangouts, theres definitely a contingent of ladies who dig the bearded and mus-tachioed man, women who cant wait to get their hands „ literally „ on the thick knots covering a mans face. But as for me, Ill have to demur. I like my men clean-shaven. Theres something about kissing a man with facial hair that rubs me the wrong way „ or maybe thats just the beard burn.

You might not agree with Norths opening bid, but theres nothing you can do about that. West leads a heart, which you win with the ace. What should you play next? (Remember, you see only the dummys hand and your own.) It would seem you have no chance to stop the contract unless your side can quickly snatch four club tricks. Dummy has nine practically sure tricks in plain view. So, acting on this basis, you could return a low club hoping to find your partner with three or four clubs to the king (almost impossible in view of Souths one-notrump bid). But observe what happens if you do this. Declarer follows low „ there is no reason to risk playing the king „ and West wins the club with the jack. West returns a club to your ace, and the party is over. South makes four notrump. Now lets go back to trick two. Instead of leading the three of clubs, lets say you lead the queen! Of course, South can make the contract by playing the king, but is he likely to do that? He might think you have the Q-J9-x(-x) of clubs and refuse to cover the queen. If he ducks, you continue with the three. What will South do this time? If he thinks you started with Q-J-9-3, he will follow low again, counting on dummys ten to force Wests ace. The contract is then defeated when partner wins with the jack and returns another club. Of course, South might guess correctly and play his king on either the first or second club lead. The important point, though, is that by playing your clubs in the suggested fashion, you give declarer a chance to go wrong. South might get it right, but at least youve given yourself some hope of defeating the contract. Q CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER High-class defense

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYHer affection for diving is part of lifelong love affair with the sea. Just watching it and being so close and personal to the sea is very, very special. Im always amazed at what I see down there. Theres something dif-ferent all the time,Ž she said during a recent visit to the ArtCenter. Its truly nature at its best and you do get to see it so up close, unless its a really large animal thats shy.Ž There is a trick to gaining even a shy critters trust. Generally, if youre just patient and wait in one place, the animals will come to you. Theyre scared off by bubbles at first, but if youre calm and stay in place, theyll come to you and kind of get in your face,Ž she said. That includes the big mammals.Whales are magical. Whales are just incredible. Ive been close enough to touch the humpbacks. They dont want you touching them and Ive been touched by dolphins, sea lions, mana-tees „ actually sort of hugged by them. Its really quite amazing,Ž Ms. Petzold said. Her images show it. On that wall is a humpback whale, floating in time. On this one, a pod of dolphins seems to beckon. Perhaps they recognize a kin-dred spirit. I go out with the Wild Dolphin Project and we have incredible encounters with the spotted dolphins,Ž she said. Hanging next to the dolphins is the image of a great white shark. Documentaries and films have tried to make sensationalism out of sharks,Ž she said. They make them into mon-sters, the bad guys, and really theyre truly just incredible animals doing what theyre meant to do, and theyre sort of the garbage collectors of the sea and keeping the balance of the larger fish, and they are not manhunters.Ž Her love of the ocean began when she was a child. Ms. Petzolds family hailed from Michigan, but summers were spent playing in tidal pools near her mothers childhood home in New Hampshire. I would go down to the tidal pools and play with all the critters left behind when the tide went out, and I was fascinated by sea stars and snails and little mollusks, little clams and any little minnow or fish,Ž she said. Then when I started snorkeling, which was probably around (age) 4, I was just fas-cinated with everything that was there, and when I started diving in 1965, that was it. I was hooked.Ž Look at her photographs and the colors of the fish and coral literally leap out of the frames. But that is not the way it looks to the naked eye. The water is a filter and the shortest color of the spectrum, which is red, is filtered first, and eventually every-thing is blue and green. None of these are enhanced by Photoshop. These are truly the colors that exist. The strobes pick up the natural color,Ž she said, pointing at an image of undersea coral. To the naked eye, you wouldnt see any of this pink because the red is gone. I was probably around 50, 60 feet here. You wouldnt have any pink to the naked eye. It all looks muddy and bland.Ž Strolling the exhibition, a reporter points to the image of a school of snap-per. The composition is perfect. They line up symmetrically,Ž she said. Then she comes to a hermit crab, called Herman. This guy, he was such a personality. I saw the shiny shell out „ basically everything in this show is new, except Herman and maybe a couple of others. I cant do a show without Herman,Ž she said. I was in a muddy muck hole in New Guinea. I will never forget this. It was 40 feet of water and this was very silty, fine mud, and I saw this shiny shell, rolled it back and saw these red legs, and I thought, Ah, photo opp.Ž She set the camera and the strobes and he had rolled back. She rolled him back, reset the camera, then he had rolled back again. And the fourth time?By then I had got smart. I got everything ready. I got the strobe set, the f-stop, got the sh utter ready. Thats when I got that expression. Bug off! Leave me alone,Ž she says. He has two anemones on his shell that will go with him when he needs to move to a new shell. They have a buddy system,Ž she said. Ms. Petzold has a buddy system of her own. Good friend Ivi Kimmel is a fellow traveler and diver. She also helps caption the photos, hence some of the more amusing names, like Hermans. That great white shark? Hes simply Billy the Bold.Ž A school of fish staring into the camera is called Heres Looking at You.Ž And that image of a penguin ambling past a sea lion is Beach Buddies.Ž Never mind that penguin is frequently on the sea lions menu. That was in the Falkland Islands, and it speaks to Ms. Petzolds travel sched-ule. She enjoys diving in the South Pacific and Indian oceans. In the Solomon Islands, you go ashore in the village and have the interaction with the villagers there and some of them are wonderful carvers and you can trade with them and buy their goods, and its another dimension to a dive trip thats great fun,Ž she says. Then there are polar bears lounging on the ice of Norway. She sees it all, despite losing part of her left leg because of infection after surgery in 2001. Its been a little more of a challenge but Ive gone everywhere Ive wanted to go,Ž she says. I cant climb the rocks and get the overviews and do the more extreme stuff that used to, but I do what I want and generally with help I get there and can do it. As far as with diving, I have a great diving leg.Ž The prosthesis comes in handy sometimes. She was sitting in a flatboat to photograph hippos, when her arm grew tired from holding the camera. But she had left her monopod back at the camp. Then someone suggested that since she was seated, she could use her leg. She removed it, rested her arm and had a story to tell. Just like her photographs. Q They are all American artists, too.In Richar d T uckers day „ the 1930s to the mid-70s „ American singers frequently had to prove themselves in Europe before they would be engaged at venues such as New Yorks Metro-politan Opera or the great opera houses of Chicago, San Francisco and Dallas. I do think there is a predominance of really well-trained American singers nowadays through various institutions and opera houses,Ž says one of those stars of the future, Ms. Meade. I think thats why were seeing a predominance of American singers.Ž Ms. Meade knows about that firsthand. She recently starred as Elvira in the Metropolitan Operas performance of Verdis Ernani.Ž But she didnt plan a career in opera.I was in community college studying pre-med-ish sort of classes „ biology, pre-med and that sort of stuff. I took choir and music theory as electives,Ž she says by phone. I started taking voice lessons at that time. I always loved to sing.Ž But her family did not listen to opera, so imagine her surprise once she start-ed studying voice. I was a couple of voice lessons in when I started studying and I thought, Wow, my voice really lends itself to this music.Ž And it has lent itself to a variety of roles in bel canto, Mozart and early Verdi operas. South Florida audiences heard her last year in Palm Beach Operas perfor-mance of Verdis Requiem,Ž where her voice soared effortlessly over orchestra and chorus. She even spun a trill that many singers do not attempt during the Lib-erame,Ž the sopranos big moment in the Requiem.Ž She doesnt stress over the music.I think about the music but not necessarily about the notes,Ž she says, adding, Ive never been one of those singers where I think about, Oh, here comes the D-flat. Its never a matter of thinking about the technique. Im blessed in that respect.Ž She says she feels very lucky.I didnt know if I could make a living doing it, but I was going to sure try,Ž she says. And pinching herself because she cannot believe shes making a living at singing? Well, that happens, too. Every time I walk out on the Met stage I have this moment of, Do I really sing here?Ž says Ms. Meade, who was born in Washington state and now lives in New York. Im just in awe that Im singing major roles there.Ž That awe catches her at odd moments. I remember this run of Ernani. I was coming down this set of stairs and thought to myself how lucky am I that I get to do this,Ž she says. I just cant imagine a better job.Ž Nor could Richard Tucker.My father never went to school, but he spoke to kings, queens and every president from Harry S. Truman on. To him, education was the most important thing. He never got educated in sci-ence, medical or business. He learned it by reading, talking to people,Ž Barry Tucker says. He had one teacher for 18 months only and after that he never went to another teacher, only because he thought his teacher had taught him the fundamentals and that worked for him.Ž So what would Richard Tucker think of todays young singers? He would tell them, Go and study and get yourself better teachers to fix the problem that you have,Ž Barry Tucker says. Remember: My father never graduated from high school. He left high school in his sophomore year because he was too poor to study. Now they have scholarships. They win voice teachers and coaches. He would tell them to keep on studying.Ž None of the Tucker sons became a singer, and this was a family that count-ed another great tenor, Jan Peerce, among its members. One is a lawyer, one is a doctor and Im still trying to find myself,Ž Mr. Tucker says with a laugh. I was not blessed with a voice. I was blessed to yell, Bravo.Ž Q SEAFrom page B1 >>What: A talk by photographer Ruth Petzold >>When: 5:30-7:30 p.m. March 15 >>Where: Lighthouse ArtCenter, Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta.>>Cost: $5 ages 12 and up; free for under 12. >>Info: 746-3101 in the know COURTESY PHOTO Ruth Petzold sometimes uses her prosthetic leg as a monopod when taking photographs.

Downtown at the Gardens ‡ Suite 3107 Palm Beach Gardens, FL ‡ Ph: 561.366.7449 s Bedding s Art s Lighting s Rugs s Gifts Furniture for Kids www.PalmBeachTots.comPALM BEACH TOTS Cribs toCollege ++ Is it worth $15 (3D)? No Is it worth $10? YesDr. Seuss The Lorax,Ž much like the Happy FeetŽ films before it, has all the subtlety of a hammer to the skull. Yes, environment-friendly themes are impor-tant to impart on impressionable young minds, but its so overbear-ing that its hard to enjoy the ani-mation, songs and sweet story. In Thneedville, everything is made of plastic, and a corrupt but minuscule busi-nessman (Rob Riggle) provides the fresh air. The residents accept this, except for teenager Audrey (Taylor Swift). She longs to see a real tree, which means 12-year-old Ted (Zac Efron) knows what he has to do to impress her: find a real tree. After some advice from Grandma (Betty White), Ted ven-tures outside of the enclosed, pris-on-like Thneed-ville and encoun-ters the Once-ler (Ed Helms), a monster-like recluse who lives at the top of a booby-trapped tower. The Once-ler tells Ted how he got there and why (by destroying trees), and as we flash back we meet The Lorax (Danny DeVito), the guardian of the forest whose job is to stop idiots like the otherwise likeable Once-ler from destroying nature. What will kids learn from this? Trees provide air, life, color and beauty. Just think about cutting them down and youre greeted by a grumpy, bright orange oompa loompa like The Lorax, whose mustache alone demands attention. Cut them down anyway and the world will be full of dark-ness and despair. And if youre the Once-ler, your sentence for destroying nature is purgatory in a tower with a Howard Hughes level of freak-dom. Oh, and big business is bad. Could somebody please tell directors Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda that their target audience of little kids barely under-stands the value of a dollar? There no doubt will be parents who find the movies message ridiculous. Business-men whose lives depend on desire for a product are demonized, even if in reality the economy needs their income as well. But Im not here to judge the merits of the films mes-sage, let alone delve into a socioeconomic discussion. No, my question is far easier: Will your children enjoy the film? In a word, yes. The songs are peppy and upbeat, and although the 3D animation isnt that impres-sive, it looks very Seuss-ian, which is a good thing. Amusing bits are dabbled throughout, but only a quick moment in which we hear the Mission: ImpossibleŽ theme can be considered for parents. The action scenes are entertain-ing, and the voice work is solid. This certainly isnt a bad movie. It is, however, its own worst enemy. Theres nothing here for adults, but chil-dren 10 and younger will enjoy it. And who knows? They might even be more environ-mentally conscious after seeing it. Thats a win-win for the kids, but a zero-sum gain for adults. Q Act Of Valor +++ (Roselyn Sanchez, Nestor Serrano, Alex Veadov) A team of Navy Seals attempts to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent (Sanchez) and stop a terrorist (Veadov) from attack-ing the U.S. Starring real (and un-credited) U.S. Navy Seals, the action is appropriately intense and, we presume, authentic. The story falters at times, but this is worth checking out. Rated R. This Means War ++ (Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy, Chris Pine) Two CIA operatives (Hardy and Pine) compete for the same woman (With-erspoon) in this lighthearted action-come-dy. As long as you dont take it seriously its good, clean fun. Rated PG-13. 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. Q LATEST FILMSDr. Seuss’ The Lorax >> Dr. Seuss’ real name was Theodore and his second wife’s name was Audrey. The couple in the movie, accordingly, is Ted and Audrey. a n l i H b dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com CAPSULES

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is looking to engage the next generation of actors, directors and creative team for a pro-duction of The Laramie Project.Ž Last year, students mentored by Maltz staff produced Lynda Barrys The Good Times are Killing Me,Ž about a young girls coming of age during the mid-60s. The Laramie Project,Ž created from interviews with local citizens and officials in the aftermath of the brutal murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard, also is sure to touch a nerve with actors and audiences. Teen suicides, especially in gay and lesbian circles, are skyrocketing, and we need to do something about it,Ž says Julie R owe, director of education at the Maltz. People have no idea that hate crimes are such a major problem in our country.Ž Known as the Youth Artists Chair and part of the theaters Emerging Art-ist Series, the project aligns high school students with theater staff members for one-on-one mentoring and guidance during the creation of the show „ thats everyone from producers to lighting and sound to marketing and public rela-tions. There is no cost to the students to participate in the project. Its a grad-uate-school level mentorship in high school,Ž says Ms. Rowe. Those chosen for the role of director and producer also will cast the performers. With casting open for local students ages 13-18, open auditions will be held April 14 during the theaters annual First Step to Stardom audition day, which also includes the opportu-nity to audition for two other shows, Through The Looking GlassŽ and The Music Man.Ž Ms. Rowe grew up in Idaho, which is right next door to Wyoming,Ž and says The Laramie ProjectŽ has special meaning for her. These are my people and I know the culture,Ž she says. Ive seen the play and read the play, and then when I re-read it I couldnt put it down. Out of this tragic event, so many beautiful things came to pass.Ž Q Maltz seeks young talent to produce “Laramie Project” BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.com If you go >> The deadline to apply for “The Laramie Project” is March 15, with interviews that will take place through March 31.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 VINOSmall wineries produce big, powerful new winesFebruary is a great time in Florida for finding new wines. The vineyards are quiet, allowing winemakers time to tour the coun-try, showcasing their wines at events such as the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. This years event raised $2 million for charity. The festival afforded a prime opportunity to try wines from some very small high-quality producers and to hear from the winemakers personally what makes their wines so special. Mike Sullivan is co-owner and winemaker at Benovia Winery, this years Signature Vintner. Like most of the wines at this years Wine Fest, his are made in small quantities and available direct from the wineries. Spe-cializing in pinot noir and chardonnay, he also makes grenache and zinfandel. The zinfandel is made from old-vine grapes grown in the Russian River Valley,Ž Mr. Sullivan told me. We hand select the clusters and then hand sort the grapes to make an expressive and detailed wine that has an elegant structure.Ž Next years Signature Vintner is Husic Vineyards, owned by Frank Husic. Our vineyards are on the side of the mountain, cut into the rockŽ in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, Mr. Husic said. He explained that because the slope of the land is about 45 degrees, they had to make terraces to have enough land for the grapes to grow. The grapes are stressed and produce low yields of 2 tons per acre, much less than the 9-10 tons per acre on the valley floor,Ž he said, adding the berries are smaller and packed with intense fruit, pro-ducing wines that are elegant with balance, finesse and structure.Ž I also spoke with Mike Smith, owner and winemaker of Myriad Cellars and Quivet Cellars, who told me he always enjoyed wine as a collector. In 2000, when he had a chance to work during the harvest with Thomas Brown of Schrader Cellars, he added, I found my passion for making wine.Ž Mr. Smith started making wines in 2005, and his first vintage sold out in five days, he said, adding todays total production is about 700 cases. Im excited about two new vineyards coming on board „ the Three Twins vineyard and the Pellet vine-yard,Ž he said, adding, Its all about location and soils.Ž If you missed this year Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, allow me to offer you a sampling of some of the wines served: Q Benovia Zinfandel Sonoma County 2009 ($40): Rich and elegant aromas of black cherry and spice mingle with dark berries, plums and a hint of pepper on the palate and a light tannin finish. Q Fisher Vineyards Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($50): Dark red in color with blackberry, dark cherry and a hint of spice on the nose, following through to the palate mixed with a touch of chocolate, and finishing with a lush, tex-tured tannin balance. Q Hall Napa Valley Winery Caber-net Sauvignon 2009 ($48): Made with 84 percent cabernet sauvignon grapes, this Bordeaux-style blend has rich aro-mas of blackber-ries, dark fruits and almonds and is fol-lowed on the soft pal-ate with dark cherry and jammy flavors leading to a smooth velvety finish. Q Hall Napa Valley Winery Merlot 2007 ($28): Blended fruit from valley floor and hillside vineyards produces an intri-cate nose of currants, plums and mint that moves into flavors of cocoa, black plum and spice, with a lingering balanced tannin finish. Q Husic Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($110): Made from the best barrels of the vintage, this big, intense wine has raspberry, chocolate and black cherry on the nose, following through to the palate with an intense and long finish. Q Husic Vineyards Palm Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($60): Lighter bodied black fruit and spice aromas lead into a soft palate with black cherry and mineral notes, leading to a long finish. Q Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Beckstoffer Dr. Crane 2009 ($95): Deep purple in color with rich aromas of blueberry, blackberry and mineral, the resulting full bodied flavors are framed by the finely integrated tannin structure and lingering finish. Q Quivet Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Kenefick Ranch 2009 ($65):Full bodied with plum and berry aromas and palate, followed by a firm mineral and tannin finish and a touch of oak. Q Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Paso Robles 2010 ($20): The newest entrylevel wine from Tablas Creek, this Rhone-style wine is made from mostly syrah and grenache. Fresh flavors and aromas of black and wild berries make this a full-bodied wine with a complex finish of berry and spice. Q Madrone Carneros Chardonnay 2009 ($30): Light straw in color and nicely balanced with aromas of citrus and apricot, the palate is full-bodied with apple, honey and tangerine and a long finish. Q m g a m v s d jim McCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com The worlds top competitive eaters, including number-one ranked Joey Chestnut, will gather at Downtown in the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens for the 3rd Annual TooJays World Class Corned Beef Eating Championship at 3 p.m. on St. Patricks Day.
