WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART ATTACK. 561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS Door to balloon time measures the time it takes for a hospital to get a heart attack patient from its ER to its cath lab to open blocked arteries. The goal is 90 minutes. More is bad. Less is good. One team in this region is consistently doing it in less than 60 minutes. This is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY MUSINGSLooking at the gift: Maybe this is a wrap? Rx It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.Ž „ Mr. Spock, Star TrekŽ Dark energy is real.Ž „ Press Release, May 2011, WiggleZ Team, Australia Had just settled down for a long winters nap when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter. I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, to re open the shutter and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave the lustre of midday to objects below.Ž „ The Night Before Christmas,Ž Clement Clarke Moore/Henry Livingston My mind to your mind; your thoughts to my thoughts.Ž „ Vulcan mind meld, Star TrekŽ That is one of the great difficulties in experiencing the unconscious „ that one identifies with it and becomes a fool. You must not identify with the unconscious; you must keep outside, detached, and observe objectively what happens ... it is exceedingly difficult to accept such a thing, because we are so imbued with the fact that our unconscious is our own „ my unconscious, his unconscious, her unconscious „ and our prejudice is so strong that we have the greatest trouble disidentifying.Ž „ C.G. Jung It is ironic that Einsteins most creative work, the general theory of relativ-ity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise (in special relativity) was that no such medium existed ... It turns out that such matter exists... Subsequent studies with large particle accelerators have now led us to understand that space is more like a piece of window glass than ideal Newtonian emptiness. It is filled with stuff that is normally transparent but can be made visible by hitting it sufficiently hard to knock out a part.Ž „ Robert B. Laughlin, Nobel LaureatePhysics, Stanford University I endeavor to be accurate.Ž „ Mr. Spock, Star TrekŽ Yes, the gift: It has been given and it has been received. Mixing and matching. Of that much there is clarity. Beyond that, it all becomes like recycled heroic theories, like the aether declared dead but then revisited in the new garb of dark energy, appearing and reappearing in Heraclitian scalar fields and Parmenidean cosmological constants. Now, please dont mistake my uncontainable exuberance for hubris. Silence is not the only humility. Perhaps quietus is neither meek nor modest, but merely an analogue for arrogance. Who knows? Because, you see, I see the unopened box, clear as the day sky. And then there is opened box, splayed and deribboned, pouring forth inner wrappings, all shiny. And just as there is about to be a view of the gift, the box is as it first appeared. And there is no magician. Just a kind of lucent allusion to a Santas workshop in which toys, elves, reindeer „ even the Pole itself „ wax and wane, sleighed amorphous suggestibility pulsing with life like protoplasm content to hint and re-hint. Who was that masked man? So, appearing again: riding a fiery horse with the speed of light, silver bullets to remember the pre-ciousness of human life, a black domino mask cut from the vest of a murdered relative, with a native American sidekick: Timeless.

But Romney could do worse than letting it all hang out, which, for him, means b utt oning up and diving into the data for some rigorously blood-less analysis. Mitt Romneys foremost sin as a politician has always been trying too hard. His gaffes tend to come from straining to identify with people. On defense over the downsizing work of Bain? Say you once feared getting pink slips yourself. ... In Detroit? Say Ann Romney drives a couple of Cadillacs. ... At a NASCAR event alien to you? Say you know some of the owners. If Romney is the Republican nominee, he would be wise to resist all the advice hell get on how to forge the kind of connection with voters that has here-tofore escaped him. He should play by different rules: Dont go out of your way to empathize. Dont tell anyone about your passions. Dont share endearing personal stories. Romney is a fundamentally decent man who has been true to his family and his faith. Hes even-tempered to a fault and personally polite (if politically ruth-less). But he wont win the Would you want to have a beer with him?Ž contest with Obama. Romney is a workmanlike politician. His pitch for himself should be that hell be an equally workmanlike presi-dent. Although it hasnt set the GOP on fire, his truest, most natural message is that hes a turnaround artist „ the guy who can rationally evaluate a situ-ation, come up with a plan and execute it. His case has to include a vision of a better America. But his implicit slogan should be No one ever regretted hiring Mitt Romney to do a job.Ž Romney has been the default candidate in the Republican nom-ination fight and will inevitably be the default candidate in the gener-al-election campaign, if hes the nominee. Voters will first decide if they are inclined to retire President Obama. Then, they will ask whether Romney is accept-able. As a politician, sheer acceptabil-ity is one of his most prized qualities. No chiliastic expectations will attach to Romney. No one will expect him to turn back the tides. Thats just as well. The messianic model of the 2008 Obama campaign is vaguely unrepubli-can and must, by its very nature, disap-point. Romneys promise is more pedes-trian, if less juvenile: to comb through the federal books. When Barack Obama made the same pledge during his first campaign, it was laughably insincere. One imagines Romney literally doing it, at all hours and with relish. For all Romneys flaws, there are worse men to make president at a time when the federal government needs to be transformed and the economy made more efficient. In 2008, Obama asked the nation to do itself the favor of allowing him to bestow on it all his history-making grandeur. In 2012, if he gets the chance, Romney should ask the nation something much more basic: Hire me.Ž„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Terror, trauma and the endless Afghan warWe may never know what drove a U.S. Army staff sergeant to head out into the Afghan night and allegedly mur-der at least 16 civilians in their homes, among them nine children and three women. The massacre near Belambai, in Kandahar, Afghanistan, has shocked the world and intensified the calls for an end to the longest war in U.S. history. The attack has been called tragic, which it surely is. But when Afghans attack U.S. forces, they are called terrorists.Ž That is, perhaps, the inconsistency at the core of U.S. policy, that democracy can be delivered through the barrel of a gun, that terrorism can be fought by terrorizing a nation. I did it,Ž the alleged mass murderer said as he returned to the forward operating base outside Kandahar, that southern city called the heartland of the Taliban.Ž He is said to have left the base at 3 a.m. and walked to three near-by homes, methodically killing those inside. One farmer, Abdul Samad, was away at the time. His wife, four sons, and four daughters were killed. Some of the victims had been stabbed, some set on fire. Samad told The New York Times, Our government told us to come back to the village, and then they let the Americans kill us.Ž The massacre follows massive protests against the U.S. militarys burning of copies of the Quran, which followed the video showing U.S. Marines urinat-ing on the corpses of Afghans. Two years earlier, the notorious kill teamŽ of U.S. soldiers that murdered Afghan civilians for sport, posing for gruesome photos with the corpses and cutting off fingers and other body parts as trophies, also was based near Kandahar. In response, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta rolled out a string of cliches, reminding us that war is hell.Ž Panetta visited Camp Leatherneck in Helmand province, near Kandahar, this week on a previously scheduled trip that coin-cidentally fell days after the massacre. The 200 Marines invited to hear him speak were forced to leave their weap-ons outside the tent. NBC News report-ed that such instructions were highly unusual,Ž as Marines are said to always have weapons on hand in a war zone. Earlier, upon his arrival, a stolen truck raced across the landing strip toward his plane, and the driver leapt out of the cab, on fire, in an apparent attack. The violence doesnt just happen in the war zone. Back in the U.S., the wounds of war are manifesting in increasingly cruel ways.The 38-year-old staff sergeant who allegedly committed the massacre was from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, a sprawling military facility near Taco-ma, Wash., that has been described by Stars and Stripes newspaper as the most troubled base in the militaryŽ and, more recently, as on the brink.Ž 2011 marked a record for soldier suicides there. The base also was the home for the kill team.ŽThe Seattle Times reported earlier this month that 285 patients at JBLMs Madigan Army Medical Center had their post-traumatic stress disor-der diagnoses inexplicably reversed by a forensic psychiatric screening team. The reversals are now under investiga-tion due to concerns they were partly motivated by a desire to avoid paying those who qualify for medical benefits. Kevin Baker was also a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, stationed at Fort Lewis. After two deployments to Iraq, he refused a third after being denied a PTSD diagnosis. He began organizing to bring the troops home. He told me: If a soldier is wounded on a battlefield in combat, and theyre bleeding to death, and an officer orders that person to not receive medical attention, costing that servicemember their life, that officer would be found guilty of dereliction of duty and possibly murder. But when that happens in the U.S., when that happens for soldiers that are going to seek help, and officers are ordering not a clear diag-nosis for PTSD and essentially denying them that metaphoric tourniquet, real psychological help, and the soldier ends up suffering internally to the point of tak-ing their own life or somebody elses life, then these officers and this military and the Pentagon have to be held responsible for these atrocities.Ž While too late to save Abdul Samads family, Bakers group, March Forward! „ along with Iraq Veterans Against the Wars Operation Recovery,Ž which seeks to ban the deployment of troops already suffering from PTSD „ may well help end the disastrous, terrorizing occupation of Afghanistan. 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. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier.Ž

And yet, last fall, I signed up to go camping „ because of my dogs. Our destination was a camp specifically planned for the happiness of dogs and those who love them. Despite my reluctance to go (I was talked into it by friends), I now look back on the experi-ence as four of the happiest days of my life. Joyful dogs, relaxed people and lots of clear, pine-scented air in a drop-dead gorgeous lakeside setting, And while my cabin wasnt fancy, it was more than comfortable enough, and the food wasnt bad at all. What did my dogs think of being offleash with other friendly, well-socialized dogs? Of nonstop swimming in a crystal-clear alpine lake? Of massages, hikes, games and even crafts? You wouldnt have to know canine body language to have read the joy in their bouncy steps, or the nonstop doggy grins on their faces. So what, exactly, is a dog camp?Ž Nothing less than the perfect blend of dogs (and people) who dont get near enough exercise and campground own-ers grateful to get a little extra income at the beginning or the end of their normal summer season. The first dog camp was Vermonts Camp Gone to the Dogs (, founded a couple decades ago and still a popular destination for dog lovers from all over the country. The idea was quickly picked up by other entrepreneurs, including the folks behind Camp Unleashed (, whose California camp was my home for a few days last fall. Camp Unleashed has three locations and is scouting for more, with established camps in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, in Asheville, N.C., and the new camp near Sequoia National For-est, in the mountains east of Fresno, Calif. Dog camp activities can typically be as organized or as relaxed as you choose. There are classes taught by experts in everything from trick-training to agility to reliable recalls, short rambles for dogs who arent all that fit (or people in the same category) or long, brisk hikes for those who can handle them. For the more contemplative, there are plenty of benches near meadows or the lake for thinking or reading while enjoy-ing the view. My dogs and I mixed classes with lake time, and I doubt my retrievers were ever fully dry the entire time. Even my 14-year-old deaf Sheltie enjoyed just walking around off-leash, and he really enjoyed getting a massage, one of the few modestly priced options that werent part of the all-inclusive cost (which varies by camp, but is typically less than a nice hotel per night) for meals, simple lodging (some camps offer upscale options for a higher fee) and a wide array of classes and activities. The happiness I took away from Camp Unleashed lasted for weeks. Even now, months later, I cant think of those days without smiling. And while I am signed up for Camp Unleashed ( again this fall, Ill also be looking at other operations to add more exposure to my newfound love of dog camps, such as Camp Winnarib-bun ( at Lake Tahoe, Calif., and the new Yellowstone Dog Camp ( in Red Lodge, Mont. (Other camps can be found advertised in magazines, such as The Bark.) And yes, I do find my enthusiasm surprising. I guess now that Ive been bitten by the dog camp bug, I just cant wait to ruff it with my happy pack again. Q While retrievers like McKenzie prefer to spend most of their time swimming, dog camps offer activities for all sizes, types and ages of dogs.

She clearly adored the staff and knew everyone by name. That affection was mutual.When she was able, Mrs. Newman was a daily presence at the theater, vis-iting with staff members and pitching in to volunteer, frequently with her life-long friend Rita Ettenberg in tow (the two ladies looked after one another). At one time, she had been a board member, and she remained involved with the theaters guild for a decade. Her personal touches are everywhere. Those lamps on the credenzas by the front door? Mrs. Newman, a retired interior designer who launched her own firm in Boston years before women started their own businesses, had agonized over them. The tropically themed carpets were her inspiration, too. She designed and named the theaters green room „ yes, its really, really green „ and she inspired an anony-mous donor to name the lobby in her honor. Mrs. Newman also led efforts to refur-bish the theaters exterior. When the theater was reorganized nearly a decade ago as the Maltz, it was a white concrete block hulk. Under Mrs. Newmans guidance, the building was transformed with sunny paint colors, and its hard edges soft-ened with tropical landscaping. She was known as the queen of the robel-linis for the palms she had planted near the entrance. I didnt even know what a robellini was,Ž Mrs. Newman said during a lun-cheon held in her honor of her birthday back in 2009. Yes, she always sweated the details. Even as her end grew near, Mrs. Newman fretted about doing what she could for the theater she loved. Jennifer Sardone-Shiner, the theaters director of marketing, visited Mrs. Newman a few days before her death. She was donating money so we could plant red and white flowers for Hello, Dolly! She knew health-wise she couldnt get out and do things, but she wanted to do something,Ž Ms. Sardone-Shiner says. But for Mrs. Newman, the commitment went beyond writing checks and designing spaces. She was constantly there nurturing and inspiring. Call her the theaters matron saint, though with her sparkling blue eyes, impeccably coiffed hair and beautifully detailed wardrobe, there was little that was matronly about her. Her voice was deep and caressing, and she addressed everyone as sweetheartŽ or darlingŽ in her Boston accent. There was a need in her to mother the staff members, young and old alike „ some staffers even called Mrs. New-man Grandma.Ž If she heard someone was sick, she would cook chicken soup. Each Christ-mas, she would bring gifts to the the-aters staff. Her care extended beyond the chicken soup and holiday gifts. We were at the theater one day and I was complaining that my ears were popping,Ž says Ms. Sardone-Shiner. The next morning, there was a voicemail waiting for her. It was Elaine saying she had made me an appointment with her ear, nose and throat specialist. Her motherly instincts kicked in. Thats how she treated people. She just cared,Ž says Ms. Sardone-Shiner. A staff luncheon was held as a memorial the week after Mrs. Newman passed away. Her son Bruce attended. Everyone had something real funny or touching to say,Ž says Anna Berardi-Grant, who recently retired as the theaters volunteer coordinator. Her kindness was overflowing. She was generous in every way of the word gen-erous.Ž Mrs. Newman even learned a thing or two from staffers. Women like her paved the way for women like me,Ž says Ms. Sardone-Shiner. She didnt even realize she did that.Ž But she turned to the younger generation for advice when she needed to calm her nerves before speaking to a group back home in Boston. I told her to look out there and see everyone naked,Ž Ms. Sardone-Shiner says. She gave her speech and told them she saw them all naked. This is one generation to another, and it obviously was interpreted differ-ently but it worked.Ž There was a lesson in Mrs. Newmans actions. The theater kept her young and fresh and she kept us on our toes,Ž says Ms. Sardone-Shiner. She inspired us to think like her. As we get older, life isnt over. Its about finding other things to keep busy in lifeƒ. She always went above and beyond and wanted to do more.Ž It didnt matter that she was in ill health. Shes the one who would be in the hospital and say, I need some bro-chures, and then hand (her doctors and nurses) a brochure and tell them all about the theater,Ž Ms. Sardone-Shiner says. The theater got a few subscribers as a result. She was a walking billboard for the theater and thats just because she had a special love for it. There are only a few people like that,Ž she says. Mrs. Newmans son has said there may be a memorial service for his mother sometime in October, around the time of her birthday and the start of the Maltzs 10th anniversary season. Says Ms. Berardi-Grant: She probably will linger in memories for many, many years. She will not be forgot-ten.Ž Q GRANDMAFrom page A1“The theater kept her young and fresh and she kept us on our toes. She inspired us to think like her. As we get older, life isn’t over.

We got a phone call on two pilings from one bridge, one from another and one from another and another,Ž he says. These werent just sticks floating on the water. Each weighed 1,500 to 2,000 pounds. Lagoon Keepers also has a kayak program through which paddlers can use one of the groups kayaks to pick up trash. The group has a lot of support, but Mr. Reynolds says the Marine Indus-tries Association is his groups largest private-sector benefactor. They understand the importance of clean water for all of us.Ž The association also strives to educate the next generation of sailors.Maritime Academy It supports The Riviera Beach Maritime Academy, a charter high school that prepares students for careers in the marine industry. It focuses on kids that want to be close to biology and our industry. Boat-ing and engineering,Ž Mr. Graziotto says. George Carter, president of the academy, says he appreciates the help the school receives from the Marine Indus-tries Association. The boat show and MIA is a great supporter. They hire some of our kids and give them on-the-job training,Ž he says. If I need rope or a dinghy, theyre right there, always ready to jump on board and help out wherever they can.Ž The school, which opened six years ago with 36 students, now has about 185 students, and is one of Palm Beach Countys eight A-schools. Officials hope to have a graduating class of 40 this year. Mr. Carter says this will be the first year in 20 that he has not worked the boat show „ there will be enough stu-dents eager to receive community ser-vice hours that he can spend his time seeing the show. Theyd much rather do boat show work than what I find for them,Ž he says with a laugh. Then he turns serious.Im real concerned about our industry as a whole that were not doing enough to get the young kids hooked on boating or hooked on fishing, par-don the clich,Ž he says. What we need to do is more.ŽSea Scouts That also is the role of the Sea Scouts. The Boy Scouts Sea Scouts introduce teens to boating. Its an interesting dynamic especially in Florida that they grow up near the water and dont ever get to see the ocean,Ž Mr. Graziotto says. It makes a difference for the 200 or so boys and girls who participate in the program, says Aaron Kreager, the Boy Scouts of America Gulf Stream Coun-cils district executive for South Palm Beach County. The support from the association means quite a bit,Ž he says. Each of the local Sea Scout groups, called ships,Ž has vessels of its own, and the cost of maintenance can be significant. Money from the association helps cover those costs. Many Sea Scouts go on to attend the Coast Guard or Marine academy, Mr. Kreager says. But there is more to it than careerbuilding „ Sea Scouting is a co-ed program. Sometimes that is really the fun thing to watch, the young ladies out-shining the young men in some of the physical tasks,Ž he says. There are not a lot of opportunities for young ladies to compete with young men at that age. In a lot of ways these are more beneficial for the young women to participate. It gives an opportunity for them to hone their competitive skills.Ž Those attending the boat show should check out Sea Scouts Ship 777 from Riviera Beach, Mr. Kreager says. They have total of eight boats that they operate. Theyre their own little flotilla. It really is amazing to watch them learn how to handle everything from a little tiny fishing boat to a big, powerful sailboat,Ž he says.What to watch for at the show Thats representative of what visitors can expect at the boat show „ a little bit of everything. And expect to see the Marine Industries Associations Mr. Graziotto shop-ping along with the rest of the public. He currently has no boat of his own.I feel like the cobbler with the bad shoes. Im a very active, busy guy. I work an awful lot and when Im free I try to spend the time with my fam-ily. We try to get out, but not nearly as often as Id like,Ž he says. I have plenty of friends and customers who are will-ing to take me. Im probably going to be purchasing a little runabout.Ž That will be perfect for getting out on the water from his home on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter. We are very lucky, I think, in that were so close to the Gulf Stream. You know, the Lake Worth Lagoon has really come back in terms of its envi-ronmental enhancement. Fishing has never in a long time, been better,Ž says Mr. Graziotto, who moved to Florida as a young man in 1990. But Ive been around long enough to tell things have really improved. The regulations on fishing have really helped, and there is a nice balance between recreational boating and fishing and diving.Ž And entering a second year using the newly redesigned West Palm Beach waterfront, Mr. Graziotto says he and the show promoter, Show Management Inc., could not be happier with the space. This years show is expected to bring $350 million in vessels to the water-front. Its worked out fabulous. The Marine Industries Association, in con-junction with Show Management, was invited to the table with this. They made sure the docks as they were designed dovetailed perfectly into the boat show. The grid and the way they were laid out was intentional, so not only do they work out for the public and during the four days of the boat show, its perfect for us, too,Ž he says. It was a monumental win for every-body.Ž Q BOATSFrom page A1 >>What: The Palm Beach International Boat Show>>When: noon-7 p.m. March 22, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. March 23-25>>Where: Along Flagler Drive between Banyan and Okeechobee boulevards, downtown West Palm Beach.

When he tried to apologize she told him she didnt believe he was truly sorry. He wasnt sure how to demonstrate that he sincerely felt terrible and was committed to making things right. He threw up his hands in frustration, convinced he would never find the words that would get through to her.Weve all found ourselves in the quandary of finding the right way to dem-onstrate that were terribly sorry weve let a loved one down. Apologies are an attempt to express remorse, to mend hurts and to repair relationships. We may spend hours looking for the exact words or gestures we believe will be necessary to make an inroad in diffus-ing the upset. We may become frus-trated, believing we are ill-equipped to repair the damage weve caused. Some reassuring findings have emerged from a study recently pub-lished in The Journal of Family Psy-chology.Ž The authors report that its not imperative that ones partner get it exactly right. On the contrary, they just have to demonstrate that they are mak-ing a sincere effortŽ to do so. In other words, the genuineness and intensity of our efforts matter more to our partners than choosing the exact right words. The authors examined the links between two distinct facets of empathy „ empathic accuracy and perceived empathic effort, and relationship sat-isfaction. The findings suggested that the perception of a partners empath-ic effort „ as distinct from empathic accuracy „ is uniquely informative in understanding how partners may derive relationship satisfaction. When we speak of empathy, we are speak-ing about the ability of putting our-selves in the other persons place to try to experience the world through their eyes. The authors report that women, in particular, may place greater value on their partners empathic effort, per-haps because this behavior emphasizes the desire and investment of their male partners to be attentive and emotionally attuned in the relationship. These findings are actually huge when it comes to the meeting of the minds of both sexes. So many of us place so much pressure on getting it just right, that we may just give up try-ing in frustration. Knowing that there is wiggle room should free up ones confi-dence to keep at it. And, the above principles are particularly applicable when it comes to offering an apology. A wronged party is acutely sensitive to the effort one puts forth in demonstrating how truly sorry they are. When there is a con-flict in a relationship, both parties may get caught in a battle of proving who is right. Couples get caught in trying to clarify what the truthŽ is, when in fact there may be no exact answer. It often helps when they conclude they may never agree on the same topic, but will agree to respect each others different points of view, and will sup-port each other in coming up with a compromise. Knowing that the other person has made a concerted effort to see the world through their eyes goes a long way toward feeling listened to and understood. We all know when someone is saying the rightŽ words, but we just feel their apology is not sincere. The message does not ring true, and we wince at their seeming lack of interest in understand-ing our point of view. It feels like they are trying to get back on good terms without having to work through the emotional part of truly making amends. Sometimes, it will be necessary to repeat ourselves several times to get our message through. If we show exas-peration, we may undo all our efforts. Sensitivity and patience are further signs that we are trying hard and will endure the discomfort to do so. It goes without saying that when we reach out to our partners we should give them our full attention. Theres no greater turnoff than when our partner responds to texts or phone calls when were in the middle of an emotional discussion. This is not the time to say, Im sorry, but ƒ Ž Trying to justify our position or trying to convince our partners to see things our way might negate the power of our efforts. When we let go of the mindset that only we are right, we become free to focus on our partners experience. We communicate a willing-ness and openness to their position, without conceding that weve given up on our own point of view. In the pro-cess, it is crystal clear that we are truly interested in understanding the world through their eyes.

The new academ-ic hospital will be located within the Scripps Florida Campus near Donald Ross Road and I-95 in Palm Beach Gar-dens. Since its inception in the fall of 2010, we have been working behind the scenes to make this academic hospital a reality. The filing for the certificate of need in the fall of 2011 was completed and in December of 2011 we received a notice of intent to approve the project from the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration. Jupiter Medical Center and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) continue to oppose the proj-ect and both have requested a hearing before an administrative law judge. This will take place in mid-August and we remain optimistic that the project will continue to gain approval. We will work to keep you informed on the status of the project and to do so we have attended community meetings and civic associations to talk about the many merits of the project. It is one of my greatest priorities to ensure that our community under-stands that this project will bring a tre-mendous positive impact to the people of Palm Beach County by improving research opportunities for our health-care and medical research practitioners of tomorrow; improving access to some of the most up-to-date, research-driven healthcare; and creating opportunities for job growth and economic develop-ment for Palm Beach County. The initial construction of the hospital will bring 150-200 full-time jobs into the community. Operationally, in the first phase alone, it will create an esti-mated 300 full-time jobs. In addition, a Palm Beach County study estimated that the academic hospital will bring an impact of more than $400 million to the local economy over the next six years. This project has brought together Tenet, Palm Beach County, The Scripps Florida Research Institute, our local community, and state government. This endeavor is a true collaboration of visionary leaders with a single goal: the best possible healthcare and a more vibrant economy to Palm Beach Coun-ty. Thats good medicine „ and good sense. As we continue through the states certificate of need process, we thank the community as a whole for its support. We look forward to providing you with updates on the project as we advance. If you have any questions about the new academic medical center, please log on to our official website, Q New academic hospital is good sense and good medicine The Scripps Research Institute and OPKO Health Inc. reached a global agreement for the development and commercialization of SR 3306, a novel compound discovered by scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute that blocks the destruction of brain-cells in animal mod-els of Parkinsons disease. This licensing agreement will help insure that the devel-opment of this prom-ising compound keeps moving for-ward,Ž said Scripps Research Professor Philip LoGrasso, Ph.D., whose laboratory has led the research on the compound to date. This is one of the best opportunities we have for the development of an effective neuroprotective treatment for Parkinsons patients.Ž Under the terms of the agreement, Scripps Research has granted to OPKO Health exclusive worldwide rights to develop, manufacture, and commercial-ize SR 3306 and related compounds that inhibit a class of enzymes called jun-N-terminal kinsases (JNK) that play an important role in neuron survival. The new compound would potentially be the first to protect the brain from the ravages of Parkinsons disease. We are excited to be working with Dr. LoGrasso and The Scripps Research Institute to develop this important com-pound which could prevent the pro-gression of Parkinsons disease and not just treat the symptoms of the disease,Ž said Phillip Frost, chairman and CEO of OPKO. Parkinsons disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that reduces the brains ability to produce dopamine, affects about 1 million Americans. Cur-rently prescribed drugs for Parkinsons disease „ including levodopa and so-called MAO-B inhibitors „ can coun-teract symptoms of the disease but not stop its progression.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 A15Big money paintingsThe royal family of Qatar, apparently striving for art-world credibil-ity, purchased a Paul Cezanne painting (The Card PlayersŽ) last year for the equivalent of about $250 million, which is twice as much as the previous most-expensive painting sold for. At the same time that Qatars purchase was made public in February, artwork of the prob-able value of about $200 million became news in reports of the imminent Facebook initial public offering. Graffiti art-ist (muralistŽ) David Choe stood to make about that amount because he took stock instead of money to paint the lewd themes on the walls of Face-books first offices. Even though Choe was quoted as saying, originally, that he found the whole idea of Facebook ridiculous and pointless,Ž his shares today are reportedly worth up to one quarter of 1 percent of the company.The entrepreneurial spiritQ Last year, the Cape Town, South Africa, gentlemens clubŽ Mavericks began selling an Alibi line of fragrances designed for men who need excuses for coming home late. For example, as men come through the door, they could splash on I Was Working LateŽ (to reek of coffee and cigarettes) or My Car Broke DownŽ (evoking fuel, burned rub-ber and grease). Q White supremacist Richard Treis, 38, was arrested in February in St. Louis, along with his alleged partner, black gang member Robert BizŽ Swinney, 22, and charged with running a huge methamphetamine operation. The two, who had met at a prison halfway house, had allegedly meshed their unique tal-ents „ Mr. Treis as a meth cook and Mr. Swinney as a skilled street seller who recruited people to buy restricted pseu-doephedrine products from pharmacies.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Houston Fund-ing for illegal discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth or related medi-cal conditions,Ž but in February, fed-eral judge Mr. Lynn Hughes rejected the EEOCs reasoning.

Ms. Bowles said she quit cold turkeyŽ after smoking for more than 40 years. Her husband joined her in the pledge to quit and both have been successful. Ms. Bowles said the $1,000 incentive from Mr. Stewart was a big motivator to quit. In addition, she said, she and her husband save nearly $12,000 annually in money they used to spend to buy cigarettes for their two-pack-a-day (each) habit. Mr. Stewart, who is an ex-smoker himself and knows how hard it is to quit, said dozens of his employees, wwincluding his son Josh, have quit smoking since he introduced the Stop Smoking Incentive Program several years ago. It is part of an overall wellness program that also rewards employees for losing weight to improve their health. The payoff is huge in terms of the improved health of our employees,Ž Mr. Stewart said. If someone feels better, they are less likely to miss work and they are more likely to enjoy being at work and they dont take cigarette breaks so they are more productive. It is posi-tive for both our employees and our business.Ž For more info about National Kick Butts Day, see For more on Earl Stewarts Stop Smoking awards, see Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Earl Stewart and Betty BowlesEarl Stewart rewards employees who quit


BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 A18 The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County is starting its second half-cen-tury with a new chief executive to plot its path toward opening of a new com-munity center in Palm Beach Gardens. David Phillips, 47, previously president and CEO of Capital Camps & Retreat Center in Rockville, Md., said that he wants to harness the genius thats already hereŽ as he settles into his new job. He was selected after a nationwide search by a committee that included representatives from the federations donors, synagogue and lay leadership, as well as other community stakeholders. Federation President Mark Levy said in announcing the appointment that Phillips stood out because of his out-of-the boxŽ thinking and professional skills, as well as his rare mix of highly desirable personal qualities,Ž such as wisdom, strength, honesty, compassion and a true commitment to Jewish val-ues. As we were preparing to celebrate our 50th year in 2012, we took a careful look at how we were going to move for-ward, retain and advance our relevance for future generations and ensure that our community continues to thrive,Ž Mr. Levy said. In order to achieve these goals, we recognized the need for a leader who can embrace change and experiment with new models „ all while honoring our heritage and tradi-tions of the past. David is exactly that person „ someone with the courage of his convictions, a passion for excellence and the ability to engage a wide and varied audience.Ž Mr. Phillips said he and his family are excited by the opportunityŽ as they prepare to make the move into a new house being built for them in Jupiter. He and wife Karen have two teenagers, and Mr. Phillips said, My family will join me once the school year ends in Maryland.Ž Son Natie,Ž short for Nathaniel, is 17 and going into his senior year in high school; daughter Hope is 13 and enter-ing her last year of middle school. Mr. Phillips said they will remain in the public school system because thats what they prefer.Ž Born in London, the new CEO moved to the U.S. in 1990 and received a bach-elors degree and a masters in social work from the University of Pittsburgh. Hes taking charge at the federation as it looks to wrap up a $16 million capital campaign for the new Jewish Communi-ty Center on Hood Road in Palm Beach Gardens. Pledges are at $13 million now, and the project will undergo municipal review in the next few months as build-ing plans are finalized and bids sought. But Mr. Phillips has significant experience in fundraising. At Capital Camps & Retreat Center, a Jewish community overnight camp and year-round retreat center serving 700 campers each sum-mer and more than 6,000 visitors annu-ally, Mr. Phillips oversaw a master plan-ning process and an $18 million capital campaign. He said he is excited to join the federation at what he believes is an impor-tant turning point for the organization. For 50 years, this federation has been nurturing its role of caring and commu-nity involvement, and has significantly impacted the lives of hundreds of thou-sands of people,Ž Mr. Phillips said. To continue to be a successful organiza-tion, we must evolve and look for ways to expand our impact. I believe the Palm Beach County Federation represents a unique and extraordinary opportunity to serve as a model of change for the entire country. This federation has an exciting future, and I feel very fortunate to be part of it.Ž Asked what has driven his success in the past, Mr. Phillips said: I think part of it is how you approach people. Were in the business of building relation-ships that result in strategic, impactful, thoughtful o utcomes f or the community. The strength of those products is directly proportional to the relation-ships you build. My strength has been listening to people, and helping them identify where those passionate pieces are and then creating or developing or identify-ing current products that we have that fit their passion. I think Ive done it in a way thats been creative and unique and helps people feel really good about how they involve themselves in building community, because we are all responsible for a vibrant and vital community.Ž As he looks to acclimate himself to his new surroundings, Mr. Phillips said, I think its really about listening to people, engaging with the people who are passionate supporters of the federa-tion, and those who have chosen to not be as active as they once were, and also, more exciting, is to actually talk to peo-ple who have never wanted to or have avoided the federation „ those are the people who also always have dynamic feedback for you.Ž Q New Jewish federation CEO wants to “harness genius” BY CHRIS COURTESY PHOTO David Phillips comes to Palm Beach County from Maryland. Eight northern Palm Beach County residents have been nominated for the 2012 Women In Leadership Awards pre-sented by Executive Women of the Palm Beaches. They are among 26 nominees countywide.

Its something called Hello, Dolly!Ž and if you think youve seen it before (and before and before), well argue with you. Because director/choreographer Marcia Milgrom Dodge and lead-ing lady Vicki Lewis invest the Jerry Herman-Michael Stewart warhorse with a freshness that nearly obliterates the iconic images created by Gower Champion and Carol Channing. They dont reinvent or reinterpret it so much as sidestep a great deal of whats been done before by treating the work as if someone just dropped an untitled manuscript off on the the-ater doorstep. One example may seem minor, but its emblematic: When Dolly makes her big entrance at the Harmonia Gardens, its not in the blazing red ankle-length gown that has become indelibly linked to the show in the public conscious-ness since 1964. Lewis struts down the stairs in a sexy emerald green dinner dress cut up to the thigh. Polished like a spittoon in a tony gentlemans club, Dodges Dolly focuses less on Champi-ons circus spectacle and more on the heroines joyous return to life after an enforced hiatus, something we can all relate to after the last few years.

Music on the Plaza … its a heart full of soul. Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome My friend Joel has a way with women. Not a way, exactly, but a con-fidence, an ease, a lack of fear that I find amazing. Theres no shortage of women in his life „ serious women and fun women and pretty women and curvy women. Women who are happy to date him, happy to accept his invita-tion to dinner or dancing. Its hard not to get caught in his orbit. I was caught briefly several years ago, flattered that he asked me out and flattered that he kept asking even when I said I was regretfully unavail-able. This guy, I thought, knows what hes doing.When Joel joined a group of my friends at a bar one night, I saw exactly what makes him so gifted. Its not that hes especially handsome (although he is) or especially charm-ing (although hes that too), its that he lacks any fear of rejection. He asked every pretty girl in the place to dance. Half said no. But he was unfazed. After each rejection, he dusted himself off and kept going. At the end of the night, he made another round, this time asking for phone numbers. Half still said no. But the rest said yes, and he went home with a phone full of new contacts. Its an admirable trait, this fearlessness in the face of rejection. One I wish I possessed. Im the type of person who has trouble asking the salesclerk in Bed, Bath & Beyond for help. My voice pipes out in a squeak and I keep my eyes on the floor. I cant even tell you what Im afraid of. That the clerk might reject my request for help find-ing the scented candles? That he might deny my search for curtain rods? That hell walk away from my inquiry about pillowcases? The ego is a funny thing, fragile and quick to damage. It bruises easily. Which is why nothing stings quite like rejection, and why we let fear of rejec-tion „ in life and love „ hold us back. Enter Rejection Therapy. Invented by Jason Comely, who says discover-ing the technique was like being lib-erated from prison,Ž the purpose of this personal social experiment is to seek out rejection. Thats right: Seek it out. Rejection Therapy is a game of sorts with only one rule: You must be rejected by another person at least once, every single day. But why? Why subject ourselves to daily doses of pain? To be more aware of how our social fears restrict our lives, Mr. Comely says. If we seek out rejection, well realize how many of the painful sce-narios we imagine are just that „ our imaginations. Rejection Therapy demands that we tackle those fears head-on, and in doing so we release the demons that hold us back. Look at Joel, who has mastered the art of climbing back on the bull. If we could all tap into this ability to let go of our fears in the face of rejec-tion, then our love lives, for one, would be transformed. What qualifies as failure in Rejec-tion Therapy?Ž Mr. Comely asks on his Web site. You do nothing, and continue living the life you are now.Ž Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSRejection Therapy takes the sting out of being turned down c n w t B artis

Its not difficult to make four hearts on this deal with all four hands in view. After West leads the K-A-J of clubs, you ruff, cash the A-K of spades and trump a spade in dummy. You then lead the nine of hearts to the ace, rejecting the finesse and felling Wests singleton king. You lose a dia-mond trick later on, but you make four hearts. But if you could not see the opposing cards, you might very well go down one after losing a heart finesse to the singleton king. However, even without the advantage of a peek, rejecting the finesse is the right play! There is a very good reason for arriving at this conclusion. First you take Wests bidding into account; then you combine it with the additional knowledge gained from the play to the first six tricks. At trick seven, when you lead the nine of hearts from dummy, you know that West „ who must have had at least four diamonds and four clubs for his bids, and who has already shown up with three spades „ cannot possi-bly have more than two hearts. (Actu-ally, hes much more likely to have either one heart or none.) It follows that you cannot gain by taking a trump finesse. Even if the finesse won, youd still have to lose a trump trick later to Easts K -x-x or K-x-x-x. Y our only hope, therefore, is that West was dealt the singleton king of trumps! It is true that the chance of West having been dealt specifically the sin-gleton king is very slim, but a remote chance is surely better than no chance at all.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYEveryone has seen Champions brilliant choreography so often because most productions just try to copy of it what they can, especially the title number. But Dodge and her assistant Josh Walden started with a blank sheet of paper and created steps and patterns totally their own. Notably, the Waiters Gallop, more tap dancing here than the traditional high stepping, justifiably earned the most sustained applause of the night for the first-rate dance ensemble. Where Champion staged the finale of Put on Your Sunday ClothesŽ with the cast spread across the stage horizontally on cut-out railroad cars, Dodge arranges the cast in three lines up a staircase in the center of the set as if the train is chugging down the tracks right at you. If this show resembles a freight train much of the time (when its not a luxu-riating waltz), the engineer is Dodge, but its Lewis standing on the cow-catcher pointing the way. Lewis may be best known for her supporting turn on the TV series NewsRadio,Ž but half a lifetime of leading lady roles in musical revivals has armed her with a star wattage and skilled musical theater chops to com-mand the stage. Her Dolly Gallagher Levi melds the fast-talking spiel of Har-old Hill with the celebratory sexuality of Mae West. No one would accuse Channing of vesting Dolly with a mellifluous voice, and Barbra Streisand in the movie twisted Hermans score to her style rather than try to fit hers to it. But Lewis „ who occasionally sounds like Streisand „ faithfully embraces and caresses Hermans music as it was meant, with an instrument that is sometime a clarion trumpet, sometimes a mellow viola. Even better, Lewis (and the entire cast) are actors who sing. At the finale of the stirring Before the Parade Pass-es By,Ž the stage is filled with prancing marchers. But Lewis face is transfixed with the quiet joy and anticipation of a future she can see over the horizon. She has a strong foil in Gary Beach (memorable on Broadway as Roger Debris in The ProducersŽ and Lumi-ere in Beauty and the BeastŽ) deliver-ing a blustery sputt ering curmudgeon in Horace Vandergelder. He had a little trouble with his lines and opening number, It Takes a WomanŽ in the first couple of scenes. But Beach warmed up and he displayed first-rate comic chops that made the most of eyes that squint and roll at the folly of his fellow human beings. Unlike 90 percent of his predecessors in the part such as Walter Matthau, Beach made Vandergelders willing capitulation to Dolly in the finale com-pletely believable. Maybe even better is the rubberfaced Matt Loehr as the lovesick clerk Cornelius Hackl. Loehr, who looks a little like a very young Paul Lynde before he discovered sarcasm, exudes that innate exuberance of the content-edly daffy. Those who saw Loehr as the lead in the Maltzs Crazy For YouŽ last season know he is a superb dancer. But to watch him galumph like a wounded crane as he learns to glide in the ecstat-ic waltz DancingŽ is a solid hoot. The rest of the cast, all looking for their share of adventure, is fine: Dani-ella Dalli is a handsome Irene Molloy with a mischievous glint in her eye who brings a wistful quality to her songs, Katie Emerson is adorable as her assistant Minnie Fay, Chris Brick is the woebegone Barnaby Tucker, and the rest of the ensemble hasnt a weak link in sight. They have been expertly led by musical director Helen Gregory, conduc-tor of an eight-member pit band that miraculously sounds like far more „ crucial when the original cast album everyone is familiar with had three times that number. Paul Tate Depoo III took a sketch of the Hearst Castle and merged it with the mahogany and brass accents of a luxury railroad car of the 1890s to cre-ate the original unit set with mobile staircases that reconfigure to create a dozen different environs. Gail Baldoni supervised the period costuming „ from the high b utton shoes to flower-bedecked hat, spats to silk top hats. Although they are a mixture of in-house designs, donations from a patrons closet and items pulled from a costume supplier, they reflect Baldonis unified fantasy vision of the Gay 90s. If you have to hunt for a weakness, the Maltz might have sprung for another couple of singer/dancers and a couple more pieces of brass to put just a shade more oomph to the production numbers. But thats the reality of eco-nomics. Our advice is to give yourself over to the irresistible force that is Vicki Lewis, Marcia Milgrom Dodge and the entire company of the Maltzs freshly minted Hello, Dolly!Ž Q „ Bill Hirschman is editor, chief critic and reporter for Florida Theater on Stage, a website devoted to news and reviews about South Florida theater.

THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE PRESENTS History becomes more interesting if you learn about it through objects and stories. Its the rest of the storyŽ that adds to the fun. A large pail that once held Dan Patch Roasted Coffee auctioned recently for $2,035. The bright-red can features a horse and rider in a harness race. The can is colorful, 11 inches tall and very decora-tive, but the price was boosted by the his-tory it represents. Dan Patch was a brown horse, a pacer, born in Indiana in 1896. He broke the worlds record for a harness race in 1906, and it took 32 years for another horse to go faster. He never lost a race. He was a celebrity, and coffee wasnt the only product named for him. Cars and wash-ing machines and cigars bore his name, and so did popular toys. Crowds followed his appearances and as many as 100,000 people went to see the horse, which, according to reports, radiated charisma.Ž Dan Patch received fan mail and gifts while making as much as $1 mil-lion in a year. He retired from rac-ing in 1909 and died in 1916. He remained a star for many years after his death, partly because his world record was not broken until 1938. Streets named Dan Patch still exist. Dan Patch Stadium is at a high school in Savage, Minn., where the horse lived after he was purchased by a Min-nesotan in 1902. An annual Dan Patch Day festival is celebrated in his hometown of Oxford, Ind., and another annual Dan Patch Day is held in Savage. Books have been written about him, a movie was made about his life in 1949 and hes mentioned in a song from the 1957 Broadway musical, The Music Man.Ž But Dan Patch Ground Coffee was named for the horse well before the days of movies and television. You can still find Dan Patch memorabilia in Savage, Minn., today. Go to the Savage Depot Cof-fee Shop, the Razors Edge Barber Shop or the local library. Q: I inherited two antique Mettlach steins that were appraised six years ago for $1,700 each. I have been trying to sell them online and locally for less than that, but I have gotten no takers. Some dealers have made insulting remarks about my pricing. Whats going on? A: Some Mettlach steins in mint condition can sell for $1,700 or even more, but many sell for a lot less. Price depends on the rarity of a particular stein. In addition, youre dealing with a niche market and may not be reaching interested buyers. Try con-tacting a national auction house that focus-es on steins. You will find several online. Q: My grandmother, who was born in 1886, left her favorite rocking chair to me. She lived in Chippewa Falls, Wis., and the chair is labeled Webster Mfg. Co., Superi-or, Wis.Ž The chair is oak and has a pressed design in the backs crest above six turned spindles. What can you tell me? A: Webster Manufacturing Co. of Superior, Wis., was making chairs by the 1890s. In its early years, it was called the Webster Chair Co. By 1915 it was a major American chair manufacturer and had opened a fac-tory in at least one other city. It appears to have gone out of business during the Depression. Pressed oak chairs like yours were especially popular in the late 19th century, so it is likely your chair dates from that period. Depending on its condition, it would sell for $100 or more. Q: I have a kerosene lamp marked Queen AnneŽ and Scovill Mfg. Co.Ž I know its about 100 years old. Can you give me some information about it? A: Scovill Manufacturing Co. opened in 1802 in Waterbury, Conn., under the name Abel Porter & Co. It made brass buttons and oper-ated under vari-ous names and owners through the years. James Mitchell Lamson Scovill and Wil-liam H. Scovill eventually took over the business, which was incorporated as Scovill Manufacturing Co. in 1850. Sco-vill made brass lamps, artillery fuses, muni-tions, medals, daguerreotype plates, cameras and other items. After 1866 it also made coin blanks for the U.S. Mint. Scovill holds several patents for improvements to lamp burners. Queen AnneŽ is a type of burner that was in com-mon use in the late 1800s. It was made by Scovill and other companies. New Queen Anne burners are available today for repair and restoration of old lamps. Scovill is still in business, with headquarters in Clarkesville, Ga. Today the company makes fasteners for clothing and light industrial use and holds a patent for the gripper snap, introduced in the 1930s. Your lamp was probably made in the late 1800s. If all parts are original, it is worth about $100 to $150. Tip: An unglazed rim on the bottom of a plate usually indicates it was made before 1850. „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Corey Johnson is showing his first series of gilded artwork as a solo exhibition at Sabourin Gallery in Jupiter. It is refreshing to see old world technique with new young approach,Ž said Michel Sabourin, owner of the gallery, in a prepared statement. A Royal Palm beach resident, Mr. Johnson has been a gilder for more than seven years, hand-making gilded frames with various grades of gold and metal leaf. A few years ago, he set out to chal-lenge public perception of gilding by developing a technique of creating art with the process itself. As an artist, my medium of choice is gilding, although it is typically thought of as a craft. It is usually seen as the embellishment that accentuates some other work that has been deemed art. Rarely is gilding perceived as a viable art medium that can stand by itself as the finished product,Ž Mr. Johnson said. Most recently, Mr. Johnson was recognized as the leader in the mixed media category when he was awarded first place at ArtiGras last month. Most people are surprised to learn that there is no use of any paints, pig-ments, stains, dyes, toners, inks, tints or glazes on any of the artwork. Mr. Johnson has pioneered a technique of creating images using gold and metal leaf combined with acid washes. Each piece is completed with a contemporary water gilded frame. Sabourin Gallery is in Driftwood Plaza, 2149 S. U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter. Call 747-3575. The exhibit is open to the public March 23-24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mr. Johnson will be at the gallery both eve-nings to discuss his process and answer any questions, as well as perform some small demonstrations of gilding.

Dont rely on some-ones unsubstantiated assurances. Insist on all the facts before you act. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That workplace problem still needs your attention before you finally can close the book on it. Meanwhile, a long-anticipated reunion gets closer to becoming a happy reality. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might be demanding more from others than they can give. Best advice: Have a long and frank talk to determine what the facts are. Tensions should abate as the week winds down. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Aspects are favorable throughout this week for making contacts that could be important to your career plans. Mean-while, an old friend offers the advice youre seeking. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its time to stop licking your wounds from past mistakes. Get up and get going toward your future. Loyal friends will be there to help the Lion get back into rip-roaring shape. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Take time out to go over whats expected of you before you begin your new project. Otherwise, you run the risk of pushing yourself harder than you need to. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An unusual request could put you in an awkward position. Best advice: Deal with it immediately. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be to get out of it. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You should feel recharged and ready for whatever your workaday world holds for you. The same positive energy spills over into your personal relationships. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A prospect might be less than it appears to be. Like the Archer in your sign, you always aim for the truth. And this is no time to settle for less than full disclosure. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Start doing some serious thinking about a career move that could entail more than just changing job sites. Some lifestyle changes also might be involved. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With tensions easing at the workplace, a more positive environ-ment once again encourages the free flow of ideas so typical of the always-innovative Aquarian. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Show some of that usually hidden steel-strong Piscean backbone, and stand up for yourself if you hope to make a case for that promotion you know you deserve. Q BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy doing new things and staying ahead of the crowd. You would make a fine sports coach or military leader. Q W SEE ANSWERS, B3 W SEE ANSWERS, B32012 King Features Synd., Inc.

YesNow this is how you reboot an old TV show. The makers of 21 Jump StreetŽ have taken the idea of the original show „ young-looking cops going undercover in a high school „ and invigorated it with humor and gusto, and the result is what could end up being the funniest movie of 2012. In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a ner-vous, Emi-nem-wannabe loser, and Jenko (Chan-ning Tatum) was a dumb jock. Seven years later, they havent grown up much, but they do become friends at the police acad-emy and later find them-selves part-nered up on bike patrol at a local park. In other words, theyre still losers. Then fortune smiles: Thanks to their youth-ful appear-ances, theyre assigned to the jump streetŽ unit and told to infiltrate a synthetic drug ring at a local high school. Naturally, this serves as a high school do-over for them, and ironically enough its Schmidt who ends up hanging with cool kids Molly (Brie Larson) and Eric (Dave Franco), while Jenko is stuck with the nerds. They also have new rules to follow: Dont get expelled, and no sex with teachers/students. The fact that they go as long as they do without breaking at least one of them is impressive. OK, the story is nothing special. In comedies it almost never is. But Michael Bacalls script is sharp and witty and hilarious, and its not afraid to take shots at itself (i.e. the movie as a TV reboot) and action movie conventions (explo-sions during a freeway chase scene). Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller keep the laughs coming quickly and move the film along at a brisk pace, which is ideal. Best of all, Hill and Tatum hit on most of the jokes. We expect this from Hill, a seasoned young comedian (Knocked UpŽ) whos been trying to get this proj-ect made for about five years (hes an executive producer for the film), but its a pleasant surprise to get it from Tatum. Weve seen him in action (G.I. JoeŽ) and drama (Dear JohnŽ), but it wouldve been hard to guess he had comedy chops too. Like him or not, the diversity in his career choices has been smart. Hill and Tatum are also surround-ed by a great supporting cast: Ice Cube gets a laugh in all of his scenes as the angry black manŽ head of the jump street unit, Ellie Kemper (The OfficeŽ) is cute and funny as an inappropri-ate chemistry teacher, and Rob Riggle (The Hang-overŽ) is hilarious as the goofy gym teacher. Sadly, the great Nick Offerman (Parks and RecreationŽ) is underused in only one scene as the police chief. If youre turned off by the fact that this is yet another reboot of a lame old TV series, I get it. But Ill also say that 21 Jump Street,Ž whether youre familiar with the old show or not, is worth your time and money if youre in the mood for a laugh. Q Seeking Justice +++ (Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce) After his wife (Jones) is savage-ly attacked, Will (Cage) makes a deal with a stranger named Simon (Pearce) to take care ofŽ the assailant. But when Will has to return the favor, trouble ensues. Its a good, tense thriller thatll have you questioning your own moral-ity when its over. Rated R.Casa de mi Padre ++ (Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez) Armando (Ferrell) must protect his fathers Mexican ranch from a drug lord (Gael Garcia Bernal). Its a silly Will Ferrell comedy in every way, except one: Its entirely in Span-ish. Unfortunately, the comedy doesnt consistently translate through subtitles. Rated R.John Carter ++ (Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Mark Strong) A Civil War veteran named John Carter (Kitsch) is transported to Mars, where he encounters strange alien life and attempts to save a prin-cess (Collins) from certain death. This is a big, bloated action pic that freely steals from other great movies (Ava-tar,Ž Star WarsŽ) but contributes little substance of its own. Rated PG-13.

This years gala fundraisers will celebrate the survivors „ victims of domes-tic violence who have triumphed in shaping better, safer lives for themselves and their children. Dr. Haridopolos, a family practitioner and wife of Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, is celebrating her own survival by encour-aging other victims. She told her story of past domestic violence publicly for the first time late last year. Let me be your voice,Ž Dr. Haridopolos says. If my story can help other victims come forward, then its well worth sharing.Ž Dr. Haridopolos, who is mother to three children, will speak to guests at the galas slated for March 24 and 29. SafeSpace created its signature Every Woman is My Sister event two years ago to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence. Since then, the agency took the words of its inaugural speaker, Denise Brown, as a rallying cry to bring the issue often treated as a dirty little secretŽ out in the open. SafeSpace, the Treasure Coasts only domestic violence center, empowers victims by offering them safety in one of its two 24-bed shelters, support and education to help them shape a positive self-direction in their lives. Dr. Haridopolos credits education with helping her escape her abuser, and has become an advocate for sev-eral health-related bills in Tallahassee, including the landmark pill millŽ leg-islation that was adopted last year to limit distribution of addictive pain kill-ers. This year, she plans to continue her role as advocate, supporting domestic violence issues and helping to dispel the stereotypes of domestic violence victims. Domestic violence knows no boundaries between races, classes and income brackets,Ž she said. You can be pretty, successful and well-educated, and you still could be a victim of domestic vio-lence.Ž The 2012 Every Woman is My Sister fundraisers are March 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the Grand Harbor Country Club in Vero Beach and March 29 at 5:30 p.m. at the Willoughby Clubhouse in Stuart. Tickets are $125 a person and can be obtained by calling Tracy Levy at 772-223-2399. For more information, call Jill Borowicz, SafeSpace CEO, at 772-223-2399.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 B17 For more information visit: Come Join the Fun! Fresh Seafood! Live Entertainment! Nautical Vendors! Kids Activities! Sponsored By: SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Cathy Helowicz was presented with The Shine Award, given to an outstanding member of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. More than $70,000 was raised by the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum & School of Art 48th Annual Beaux Arts Ball. During the evening, school of art faculty members Judy Flescher and Ted Matz painted and Nilda Comas sculpt-ed, accordions played and the space was alive with song, courtesy of singer Tangi Colombel and his ensemble of sax, clarinet and bass players. The 150 guests of the event, chaired by Dorothy and Malcolm MacKenzie, helped raise more than $70,000 to ben-efit programs at the not-for-profit art center. This was our most successful fundraiser to date, and our guests had a lot of fun,Ž said Katie Deits, the ArtCenters executive director. Guests dressed in bistro-attireŽ and bid on silent auction items, ranging from objects of apparel and vintage fair to paintings, a fly-fishing trip and a golf lesson with Gary Wiren at Trump Inter-national. Live auction items included an excursion on a luxury yacht donated by artist JoAnne Berkow, a private catered dinner in the museum (donated by Pea-cock & Lewis) and a Caribbean cruise donated by the Travel Gallery. But, per-haps le pice de rsistance was a weeklong stay at a luxury resort on the Playa de Maya in Mexico donated by Denise Le Clair-Robbins. A challenge grant helped with unrestricted funds and guests generously selected items from a wish list for com-puters, school equipment, childrens camp scholarships and ArtReach pro-grams. A popular part of the silent auction this year was the petite Eiffel Towers that were hand painted by Lighthouse ArtCenter member artists and faculty in styles evocative of French painters. Guests started with escargot en croute and miniature croque monsieurs and dined on hearty boeuf bourgui-gnon, ratatouille and delicate coquille St. Jacques, all classically created with their personal flair by chefs Lenore Pinello and Joe Scarmuzzi from In The Kitchen. They topped off the dinner with a dessert of Bananas Foster flam-bed. Several Awards were presented. Frank Harris was presented with the Wally Bates Award, which was created to honor a long-time, faithful volunteer and friend to the Lighthouse ArtCenter who has made an impact on the com-munity. The Shine Award is presented annually to an outstanding member of the Lighthouse ArtCenter who shows exceptional dedication by helping the art center fulfill its goals in serving the arts community. Cathy Helowicz was presented with a handcrafted silver necklace created and donated by jewelry instructor Tracey Roedl. Ms. Helowicz has served on committees, the Lighthouse ArtCenter board, managed the ArtCenters Face-book presence, helped with the 125 Club event, sponsored a summer exhibition of her childrens book and chaired the DArt for Art fundraiser for the past two years. What made the evening such a success was the hands-on work of our co-chairs and dedicated volunteers,Ž Ms. Deits said, and the atmosphere, where guests were surrounded by large French-themed paintings created by Gerri Aurre and Julie Silk-Beaumont, was artful and extraordinary.Ž Its great to see the staff and the volunteers hit a home run,Ž Mr. MacKenzie said. Seventy thousand dol-lars? Thats considerably more than last year. Theyre feeling great about it and that makes Dorothy and me really, really happy.Ž Mrs. MacKenzie agreed.I dont know of a harder working staff than the people at the ArtCenter,Ž she said. And our donors and sponsors really stepped up to the plate this year. Im so proud.Ž For Ms. Deits, it all points to the ArtCenters continued growth as northern Palm Beach and Martin counties go-to place for the arts. Our museum and school of art are poised to advance to the next level,Ž Ms. Deits said. Support such as this will help us make that step and help us to bring the joy of art to all.Ž Q Lighthouse ArtCenter ball raises more than $70,000SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY“What made the evening such a success was the hands-on work of our co-chairs and dedicated volunteers.” – Katie Deits, executive director

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B23 VINOKrupp Brothers Winery starts with great terroir, then adds grapesAmong the delightful boutique wines cropping up are the distinctive Napa offerings of Krupp Brothers Winery, which are characterized by big fruit fla-vors and excellent structure. After having attended a couple of recent tastings, I interviewed owner Jan Krupp, an internal medicine physician, by phone last week. Q: How do you practice medicine and maintain your vineyard? A: I do not practice anymore, except as a first responder in the vineyards. We have too many grapevines to do that and practice medicine. Q: How did you make the transition from medicine to winemaking? A: I studied at Yale, but wanted to learn medicine in the sunshine, so I moved to northern California and did my post grad at Stanford. I liked being a doctor, but liked growing grapes and making wine even more. In 1991, I found 41 acres with the potential for high qual-ity wines. I planted wilder and rockier vineyards until I had 500,000 vines planted and gave up medicine to make wine. I studied at UC-Davis to learn the science of winemaking. Q: Do you see an advantage in creating a wholly new vineyard rather than purchasing an existing one? A : The advantage is you can really study what type of grapes and rootstock are best for your location, and get the right angle for the rows. You do not inherit someone elses mistake. Also, exceptional vineyards are not for sale. Q: How do your vineyards differ from each other? A: Our Stagecoach Vineyard is planted with 550 acres of grapes on Atlas Peak. The different aspects of the soil make it perfect for cabernet sauvignon, and the mountain grapes make a bigger, juicier fruit with ripe round tannins. The Krupp Vineyard has about 30 acres planted in mostly tempranillo and malbec. Its a little cooler spot. The Krupp Brothers Vineyard is generally deeper soil, so we can utilize different rootstocks there. Q: Whats your favorite wine that you make? A: That depends on what I am eating, but if I could take just one to a desert island, it would be the Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon. It has so much depth and concentration and complexity. Q: What are your plans for the near future? A: We hope to build a winery in the next year, and we want to do more small production wines for our wine club members. We bottled a special malbec last year, and also a syrah with three years barrel aging. It is wonderful to do these wines, and were hoping once the tasting room and winery are open it will drive more visitors out to us. Right now, we crush and make our wines at Laird Family Estate Winery in Napa, and tastings are at the top of Stagecoach Vineyard, at 1,800-feet elevation. Normally, we take visitors up in an SUV, but for special wine club events we use our 136-year-old stagecoach. I recently attended a Krupp Brothers tasting. Here are my tasting notes: Q Krupp Brothers The Doctor 2007 ($75): An interesting blend of merlot, tempranillo and malbec with some cabernet sauvignon. Opens with violets and lavender and earth followed onto the palate by black fruits, dark cocoa and mocha and a lingering finish. Q Veraison Synchrony 2007 ($72): Dark rich colors with fragrant floral notes and aromas of blackberry, vanilla and blueberry. The palate is layered with bright red fruits and mocha and leads to a long, lingering finish. Q Veraison Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach 2007 ($60): Aromas of spice and espresso bean lead to black currant, dark berries and a mineral edge, with a powerful yet elegant finish. Q Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($104): Deep purple color with a complex aroma of cassis, vio-lets and chocolate. The palate is layered with dark black fruits, roasted coffee and black tea with a long, structured finish. Q Black Bart Syrah Stagecoach 2007 ($58): Deep garnet in color with aromas of blueberries and raspberries, with a complex palate of fruit and oak and a persistent finish.
