As for the parts played, no one could have foreseen the dark turn they took. Not Mr. Lapidus, nor, indeed, the players themselves. The hotel opened in December 1954, an opulent parenthesis of a place, the pride of owner Ben Novack Sr., who described it as Miami Beach FrenchŽ and pro-claimed it the worlds most pretentious hotel.Ž Its 1,504 rooms hosted many of the rich and the famous of the 1950s and 60s and 70s. Itself a film star, its familiar profile appeared in the films ScarfaceŽ and A Hole in the Head,Ž and the TV series Surfside Six.Ž The drama alluded to by Mr. Lapidus had a ready-made child star in Ben Novack Jr., born the year after the Fon-tainebleau opened. Young Ben played his role well: He was the perfect poor little rich boy.Ž On April 16, Narcy Novack, the wife of Ben Jr., goes on trial in New York for MURDER FOR HIRE?

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 APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYShoot first, ask questions later. Stick to your guns. Run n gun or give em the gun, either one and preferably both. Ladies and gentlemen, its time to prep for the Republican National Convention, now less than 18 weeks away. Standing, kneeling or prone, just let your breath out. Then squeeze, dont pull. The gun is an extension of you. In the Sunshine State, deadly force is as legal as rain if you think your life is endangered or youre at risk of serious bodily harm. There is no duty to retreat,Ž as there is in some states. Got all that? On Aug. 27, exactly 2,286 delegates, along with 2,125 alternate delegates, will arrive in Tampa with families, friends, lob-byists, servants and hangers-on to begin the Republican National Convention. Every last one of them should be acutely aware of these facts. So should you. Though they will be a diverse group „ men and women of all ages and back-grounds, all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories „ they will travel to Tampa with a single unified purpose,Ž according to the GOP website. They sure will. To avoid getting shot.This is an exciting time for Republicans nationwide because they steadfastly favor a hands-off policy of gun regulation, along with a hands-on policy when it comes to guns themselves. Especially Republicans in Florida.Rifles, shotguns, and pistols: your .45s, your .44 Mags, your .357s and .38s, your gats, rods, Roscoes, six-guns, niners, your semi-autos and autos, your burners, heat-ers and pocket rockets. Here in the bastion of conservative Christian values we got us some rootin tootin shootin worshippers, along with the most liberal gun laws in the country. When you come to the Sunshine State, folks, youve come to the buckle of the Bible Belt „ the man-up Bible that says an eye for an eye.Ž Not the wimpy Bible that says, turn the other cheek.Ž Dont get confused here. Floridas very conservative Republicans are actually more liberal than Liberals like President Obama, when it comes to guns. If you think you need it, well by God and the Second Amendment you can have it in the Sunshine State. Thats courtesy of GOP legislators in Washington and Tal-lahassee who love the gun lobby as much as they love the insurance lobby, the phar-maceutical lobby, the oil lobby and the hotel lobby. To be fair, the only reason they love the hotel lobby is because the hotel bar adjoins it. Have a drink or three, and check your load. All of which poses a problem for Tampa police and city officials. Twenty-eight of the 50 not-very-United States are united in this rule: Any Florida gun permit is OK in their state, and vice versa. So you have states like Texas, Alabama and Mississippi where anybody who has a gun can carry it into Florida. And in those states, any Republican who doesnt carry a gun is considered a terrorist, just as in Florida. Think of it this way (and they do): An Elephant with no gun is really just a lefty with no testicular fortitude „ a flower-waving lefty. A traitorous supporter of the emasculating Democratic agenda to pry our hands off our guns while theyre still warm and alive, not when theyre cold and dead. Heres what all this means: Come August, a lot of conventioneers will show up in Tampa with guns. And they will be allowed to carry them around downtown Tampa, because the states Republican legislators saw fit to prohibit local govern-ments here from passing their own rules to restrict guns, even at special times. Not only that, but protestors can show up with guns, too. And they can carry them around Tampa. And even if the police ban all kinds of other weaponry from the city during convention week „ and reports suggest that they will „ people are still going to be carrying guns. But dont worry. At least they wont be allowed to carry maces, battle axes, bayonets, hunting knives, combat knives, butcher knives, daggers, swords, tridents, pitchforks, bludgeons, blow guns, hand grenades and the like. Besides, whats a crossfire or two among friends? Its true, all those who wander around downtown Tampa with handguns will have to have permits from this state or one of 28 others „ unless they want to bring rifles and shotguns. In which case, no permits are needed. But they cant carry those around unless theyre hunting.Ž God knows Tampa is full of wild pigs, so I imagine the hunters could show up, too. Unfortunately for Floridas delegates to the convention, they could easily get out-gunned. Although the Sunshine State usu-ally gets to send 99 delegates to the con-vention, in 2012 it will be only 50, about the number of a reinforced rifle platoon. Never mind that the state has 19 million or so citizens and a powerful presence in presidential elections (29 electoral votes). Republicans here are being punished by their National Committee leaders for jumping their primary election ahead of many other states on the national sched-ule, and picking Mitt Romney as the can-didate way back on Jan. 31. The race was over then, as I pointed out at the time. The Republican spoils went to a man who now owns two shotguns. He owned none until after the 2008 presiden-tial race, when he claimed to have hunted varmints all his life and then had to admit he didnt know which varmints, and hed only ever been hunting twice. Of course, Mr. Romney doesnt know which end of the shotgun to point toward the target, and he may not know the differ-ence between a rifle and a shotgun. Im looking forward to going hunting with you,Ž he told comedian Jeff Foxwor-thy in Alabama last month. And you can actually show me which end of the rifle to point.Ž Lets hope not. The last time a Republican with a foot in the White House went hunting, he shot the man beside him, not the bird in front of him. That was Dick Second AmendmentŽ Cheney. One final word of advice then, in preparation for August in Tampa: If you see Mitt, duck. Q Republicans are gunning for TampaCOMMENTARY roger

A4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe murders that don’t count amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Delric Miller IV died in a hail of bullets a month ago. When someone fired 37 AK-47 rounds into his Detroit home at 4:30 a.m., he was mortally wounded while dozing on the couch. He was 9 months old. No one made the multicol-ored teething ring he got for Christmas or his toy hammer into national symbols of random violence. Last year, Charinez Jefferson, 17, was shot and killed on a Chicago street. She begged the shooter not to shoot her because she was pregnant,Ž a pastor explained. The alleged assailant, Timo-thy Jones, 18, shot her in the head, chest and back after seeing her walking with a rival gang member. New York Times columnist Charles Blow did not write a column about Jeffersons killing as a symbol of the perils of being a young black woman in America. Last June, a stray bullet from a confrontation on a Brighton Beach, N.Y., boardwalk killed 16-year-old Tysha Jones as she sat on a bench. A 19-year-old man, out for revenge after an earlier scuffle on the boardwalk, was charged in the shooting. Tyshas heartbroken mother was not featured on all the national TV shows. In January, 12-year-old Kadejah Davis was shot and killed when, allegedly, 19-year-old Joshua Brown showed up at her Detroit house to demand the return of a cellphone from Davis moth-er. When Brown didnt get the phone, he fired shots through the front door. No one held high-profile street protests to denounce gunplay over such trifles. Everything about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida is a matter of conten-tion. About this, though, there should be no doubt: If Martin had been shot by a black classmate, if he had been caught in a random crossfire, if he had looked at a gang member the wrong way, his death would have been relegated to the back pages of the local newspaper. Not a cause, not even a curiosity: Just another dead young black man. Nothing to see here. Please, move on. Jesse Jackson is right that blacks are under attack.Ž According to a 2005 FBI report, blacks accounted for 13 percent of the population and 49 percent of all homicide victims. In 93 percent of the cases, the killer was black. Half of the victims were ages 17 to 29. That works out to 4,000 murders of young blacks in one year, overwhelmingly at the hands of other blacks. In the communities where these killings occur there is, to put it in Jacksons inimitable terms, no justice and no peace. There is no com-parable epidemic of half-Hispanic neigh-borhood-watch volunteers like George Zimmerman shooting young black men. An injustice may well have been done in the handling of the Martin shooting, but lets not fool ourselves. Zimmer-man could be arrested, convicted and hanged tomorrow, and it will have no effect on the lives of young black people in communities beset by social disorder. Whatever happens to Zimmerman, the drip-drip of spilled blood will continue, all but ignored except in the police blot-ter. In America, the lives of young black people are cheap, unless they happen to fit the right agenda. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Black in White Plains: The police killing of Kenneth ChamberlainMy name is Kenneth Chamberlain. This is my sworn testimony. White Plains police are going to come in here and kill me.Ž And thats just what they did.In the early hours of Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, U.S. Marine veteran Kenneth Cham-berlain Sr. accidentally hit his LifeAid medical-alert pendant, presumably while sleeping. The 68-year-old retired correc-tions officer had a heart condition, but wasnt in need of help that dawn. Within two hours, the White Plains, N.Y., police department broke down his apartment door and shot him dead. Chamberlain was African-American. As with Trayvon Martin, the black teen recently killed in Florida, there are recordings of the events, recordings that include a racial slur directed at the victim. The opening quote, ab ove, was related to us by Kenneth Chamberlain Jr., when he appeared on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour talking about the police kill-ing of his father. Ken Jr. was holding on to the LifeAid pendant that his father wore around his neck in case of a medi-cal emergency. Perhaps unbeknownst to the White Plains police who arrived at Ken Sr.s door that morning, the LifeAid system includes a box in the home that, when activated, transmits audio to the LifeAid company, where it is recorded. Ken Jr. and his lawyers heard the record-ing in a meeting at the office of the Westchester County district attorney, Janet DiFiore. Ken Jr. repeated what he heard his father say on the tape: He says, Im a 68-year-old man with a heart condition. Why are you doing this to me? ... You also hear him pleading with the officers again, over and over. And at one point, thats when the expletive is used by one of the police officers.Ž One of Chamberlains attorneys, Mayo Bartlett, told me about the racial slur. Bartlett is a former Westchester County prosecutor, so he knows the ropes. He was very explicit in recount-ing what he heard on the recording. Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. said to the police, Im a sick old man. One of the police officers replied, We dont give a f--k, n-----! (that last word rhymes with trigger,Ž which they would soon pull). The recording also includes a taunt from the police, as related by Bartlett, Open the door, Kenny, youre a grown-ass man!Ž It was when Ken Jr. related how the police mocked his fathers military service that he broke down. He said, Semper fi.Ž So they said, Oh, youre a Marine. Hoo-rah. Hoo-rah.Ž And this is somebody that served this country. Why would you even say that to him?Ž Ken Jr. wept as he held his fathers Marine ring and Veterans Administration card. The LifeAid operator that November morning, hearing the exchange live, called the White Plains police in a desperate attempt to cancel the call for emergency medical aid. Chamber-lains niece, who lives in the building, ran down, trying to intervene. Cham-berlains sister was on her cellphone, offering to talk to her brother. The police denied any attempt at help. One was heard on the recording saying, We dont need any mediator.Ž The heavily armed police used a special device to take Chamberlains door completely off the hinges and, as chill-ingly captured in the Taser-mounted camera, burst into the apartment. Mayo Bartlett recounted seeing Chamberlain shirtless in the video, hands at his side, without the knife or hatchet that police claim he wielded, standing in his boxer shorts. The minute they got into the house, they didnt even give him one command. They never mentioned, Put your hands up. They never told him to lay down on the bed. They never did any of that. The first thing they did, as soon as that door was finally broken off the hinges, you could see the Taser light up, and it was charged, and you could see it going directly toward him.Ž The last thing Bartlett hears on the Taser tape is shut it off,Ž meaning, turn off the video recording, which the police did. Within minutes, they would shoot Chamberlain twice. Four months later, no one has been charged with the killing. Democracy Now!Ž co-host Juan Gonzalez revealed the name of the shooter through his reporting in the New York Daily News, as White Plains Officer Anthony Carelli. Carelli is to be tried in coming months for alleged police brutality against two brothers, the sons of Jordanian immigrants, who say Carelli beat one of them, Jereis Hat-ter, while handcuffed, and called him a raghead.Ž Trayvon Martin was killed Feb. 26. A Florida grand jury is expected to begin the investigation into his killing on April 10. The next day, April 11, a New York grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing evidence in the case of Ken-neth Chamberlain Sr. He was killed last November. In both cases, an African-American male was gunned down. In both cases, the shooter is known to the police. In Chamberlains case, it is the police. And no one has been arrested.

Great Prizes for Pooch!This month's photo contest is looking for that moment when "They are just too darn cute to yell at". Send your photos to BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickSpring hadnt even clocked in a full week before two dogs belonging to friends of mine were bitten by rattle-snakes. Both dogs survived and will recover fully, but the pain was significant „ and so was the cost of treatment. Fortunately, most snakes arent all that interested in biting; they prefer to hide or skedaddle when faced with a threat. If they cant escape, theyll bite. Thats when dogs typically get bitten: They put their noses where they dont belong, and instead of letting a snake slither away, they bother the reptile until it strikes. Dr. Tony Johnson, a veterinarian specializing in emergency and critical care, spent part of his career practicing in the dry, brushy foothills of Northern Califor-nia „ prime rattlesnake country. In his experience, terriers tended to be bitten more often than other dogs. Its almost always dogs and its almost always terriers,Ž he said. Cats tend to be more cautious than dogs, and a terrier is more likely to put his nose where it will get him into trouble than many other dogs. And they dont learn from the experience.Ž What can you do to protect your dog? Here are some tips: Q Keep your dog on leash if at all possible. While thats not possible for working dogs such as search-andres-cue or hunting dogs, its likely the safest strategy for all others. Q Work with your dog to ensure he comes when called, so that if you hear or see a snake, you can get your dog away and allow the snake room and time to escape. Q Stay on established trails instead of hiking through areas where snakes can hide. Q Dont allow your dog to burrow or otherwise try to tangle with wildlife. If hes looking for trouble, he may find it. Q Consider snake-proofing. Many hunters take their dogs through clin-ics where professional trainers expose the animals to caged snakes and use electronic shock to establish a negative association. The clinics are controver-sial, however, because of the use of pain in teaching dogs to fear the reptiles. Balancing risk vs. benefit is an owners judgment call. Signs of a bite include puncture wounds from the fangs of the snake, bruising, blood and a rapid swelling as well as severe pain. If you suspect your dog may have been bitten, end your out-ing and immediately get to a veterinarian „ and call ahead, if at all possible, so the veterinary team can prepare. Your pet will need emergency veterinary care to address both the immediate dangers of swelling and pain as well as the longer-term challenges, such as dead tis-sue and infection. Most dogs survive a bite, especially with prompt veterinary care. Theres nothing you can do in the field to help your dog,Ž said Dr. Johnson, certainly not cutting the wound or suck-ing the venom out. Just get to the vet.Ž Its worth asking your veterinarian about vaccines that protect dogs from the venom of some snakes. But really, if youre going to be hiking with your dog in areas that are perfect habitats for snakes, youll need luck as well as precaution. And, as always, know where to find a veterinarian when you have to, quickly.

PAGE 8 FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 make it a day. Here, those who study science and those who explore the realms of spirit, even those dealing with the supersti-tions of sport and stage, share how they see Friday the 13th as an illusion, not an evil, but something that can be swept away.An unlucky day, long agoDeborah Kelemans grandfather was born on Friday the 13th. Her family thought it was funny. A merchant sailor, he once saved someones life, received a medal from the mayor and was very much someones good luck. It shouldnt be viewed as an unlucky day,Ž she says of Friday the 13th. It was unlucky because of what happened a day years ago, many, many years ago.Ž Ms. Keleman is a psychic and owner of The Labyrinth, a spiritual resource center in South Fort Myers. I feel peo-ples feelings. I use cards. I get pictures in my head. I hear a voice. I get dead people, but not on demand,Ž she says. Cross-referencing history with her memory, she goes to her Toshiba and consults Wikipedia, searching the Knights Templar to explain why she believes Friday the 13th became unlucky. Dial-up Internet, her connec-tions slow. She reads aloud the details of Friday, Oct. 13, 1307 when King Philip IV of France had the Templars arrested, tor-tured into confession and burned at the stake. Mrs. Keleman says the Templars had money, the king was in debt, Its all about power.Ž She says some superstitions are good, like not walking under a ladder, Well, duh,Ž and finds others to be true, If youre getting married and its raining, not good,Ž she shakes her head and her finger. Most superstitions, she feels, turn into a game of telephone, You tell something over and over and every-body changes it.Ž Looking to two women in her shop, shes curious whats been telephonedŽ down to them. By chance, or intuition maybe, the younger woman says, I was born on the 13th. I always thought it was good luck.Ž Turns out she was married on Friday the 13th. But that wasnt good,Ž says her mother. That was just a lesson,Ž the woman accepts.The opposite of prayerPam Minton has taught at Edison State College for 23 years. She drives a Volkswagen Beetle and listens to reg-gae. She teaches speech, but considers Sicilian folklore her hobby. She believes in signs passed down through her Sicilian heritage: If a bird flies at your window, its a sign of death. If someone accidentally leaves their shoes on your table, its also a sign of death. If a visitor overstays her welcome, put a broom in the corner and your visitor will leave. Signs, I think, are put in our path to warn us of impending futures,Ž Ms. Minton says. If we watch the signs, we can avoid coming face to face with whatever the disaster.Ž A famous sign would be rats leaving a ship, Thats physical evidence the ship is sinking,Ž she says. Another would be silent birds, if you dont hear them singing, cover up, a storms com-ing. I dont classify this as supersti-tion,Ž she clarifies,  I say its folklore, and I respect it.Ž In Italy, Ms. Minton says Friday the 17th would be considered unlucky. In Spain, Tuesday the 13th. Adding to the American superstition she mentions Tomas Lawson, author of the 1907 novel Friday the Thirteenth,Ž wherein a broker capitalizes on the supersti-tious day to bring down Wall Street. Is it real?Ž she asks of Friday the 13th. If you expect bad, youre setting yourself up for the fall. I find nothing unlucky about it.Ž When she thinks of all the fear attached to the day, she says it can have the opposite effect of prayer. You know when people get together to pray for a good o utcome, to pray for the grace of God to heal,Ž she poses, Oftentimes it happens, because of positive collective consciousness.Ž She feels negative collective consciousness holds the same potential, Its exponential, its contagious, panic exudes.ŽBanishing the anxietyPsychic medium Jennie Martin says you manifest what you believe. If you believe in signs, you manifest signs; you manifest your thoughts, and your thoughts can change in an instant. Most people think their thoughts control them,Ž Ms. Martin says, But you can actu-ally control your thoughts.Ž Ms. Martin owns Masters of Healing and Light, a Fort Myers center for enlightenment off College Parkway. Buddhas and angels, stones and crystals, tarot decks and essential oils fill her shop. Wednesday evenings she leads a spiritual develop-ment class, where she teaches her stu-dents manifestation. Ms. Martin says one of her students has learned to dissipate anxiety: She listens to her thoughts, she chooses new ones, she reasons it out. Ms. Martin believes this same thought process can help overcome the hysteria of Friday the 13th. Creating conscious thought helps dispel the anx-iety,Ž she says, again using her student as an example, She became more con-scious of the thought she was uncon-sciously participating in. She brought her anxiety to consciousness. I swear it works, you just have to do the work.Ž The psychic says people get stuck on their story, they believe their story so much, they dont know how to separate their individual self from their belief. If you believe it, its your truth,Ž she says. Contemplating superstition, the number 13, the date Friday the 13th, thoughts not serving you,Ž she surmis-es, When you focus on worry, what do you think you bring about? More worry. These thoughts we entertain in our minds, how long do we want to partici-pate in them?ŽFriday the 13th, cause or effect?Before practicing at Peace River Psychology in Port Charlotte, Dan Gold-man, Ph.D., counseled in Naples and Fort Myers. He typically treats more clinical issues like depression or addic-tion, but when he thinks of supersti-tion, he says to some degree, you create your own luck. If you believe in something, you act a certain way and bring about the result you want,Ž he says. Regarding Friday the 13th, he says people have a tendency to mistakenly couple the day and date as cause and effect, when in real-ity, its a false asso-ciation, Correlation does not imply cause.Ž He goes back to his college days when one of his professors com-pared two seem-ingly unrelated occurrences: Mur-der rates increase, as ice cream sales increase. Might one conclude ice cream causes murder? Murder rates go up when its hot outside,Ž says Dr. Goldman, making people irritable, more inclined to rash decisions. Ice cream sales also go up when its hot outside. Its not cause, its a third variable altogether.Ž Considering athletes, Dr. Goldman likes to counterbalance superstitious behavior with the term locus of con-trol.Ž If someone has an internal locus of control, they feel their behavior impacts their o utcome, like a basketball player who goes to the gym every day and shoots 100 free throws, If I prac-tice, I will shoot better,Ž the psycholo-gist explains. But if a person has an external locus of control, they feel helpless and may reach for the irrational, like a player approaching the foul line, dribbling the ball three times and wiping the sweat from their forehead with their left fore-arm, hoping to conjure a better chance. If a baseball team puts on rally caps and tries to make a comeback in the ninth inning, more power to them. It doesnt hurt anybody,Ž he says. But if your superstitious behavior causes you a great deal of distress, you may want to talk to a mental health counselor.ŽThe illusion of the stageAndrew Kato remembers the moment he learned the theater was make-believe. He was a little boy, maybe 5 years old. His mother was a puppeteer in England. He walked back-stage and saw the show as an invention. I was fascinated,Ž he says. I thought what I saw was real.Ž Now working as the producing artistic director of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, southeastern Floridas larg-est regional theater, Mr. Kato says hes built a career out of creating illusions on stage. In this vein, he sees Friday the 13th as an illusion of a day, though Mr. Kato concedes he and his col-leagues embrace superstition, because were gypsies at heart.Ž People in the theater move around a lot,Ž he says. And I think a lot of the folklore, thats why its stuck with us.Ž One such superstition: The stage can never go dark, hence the ghost light, to keep ghosts away. To be practical, its so you dont trip and fall,Ž Mr. Kato says. Its also believed a bad dress rehearsal foretells a good opening night. Mr. Kato found truth in this when the Maltz put on Smokey Joes Caf.Ž During rehearsal, a large sign fell, light bulbs shattered. All the actors were fine,Ž says the artistic director. We stopped dress rehearsal and said, Good. Well have a good opening night.Ž Opening night proved near sellout. Carrying on, You cant say the name of a certain Shakespearean play in a theater,Ž Mr. Kato hesitates, I wont say it because Im in a theater right now.Ž He speaks of Macbeth,Ž cursed as the Globe Theatre was believed to burn down after a performance of the play, other origins of this superstition exists, some involving spells. If you do say it,Ž Mr. Kato continues, You must go outside, turn around three times and spit.Ž Mr. Katos personal superstition: I always check my fly before I go on stage, seriously, every night.ŽLittle green menManaging the Fort Myers Miracle for three years, Jake Mauer has seen many superstitions „ baseball players putting their shoes on the same way, taking the same amount of steps to the batters box, the same number of pre-SUPERSTITIOUSFrom page 1 MARTIN GOLDMAN KATO


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 NEWS A9 liminary swings „ anything to keep a streak going. We had one pitcher who would eat the same sandwich from the same place every game he played,Ž Coach Mauer says. You could pretty much set your clock to it. Youd come into the club-house, and there he was, eating his club sandwich.Ž Playing baseball himself for five years, Coach Mauer had his own superstitions. He wore the same pair of batting gloves for a whole season. By the end of the year, they were all ripped, tattered and torn,Ž he says. But I made sure I washed my socks, thats just disgusting.Ž When things are going well, you want to keep things the same, he says. When things are going bad, you want to break the jinx. Hes seen players don new spikes or change their undershirts. But the strangest superstition hes ever seen was a pitcher with little green army figures, like the kind you see in Toy Story,Ž the old-time green army guys,Ž Coach Mauer describes. On days this pitcher would play, he would take his army dudes into the dugout, set them up, then go out and pitch. It probably had no influence on his performance, little green guys or not. Whats gonna happen is gonna hap-pen,Ž Coach Mauer says. But he felt more at ease when they were there.Ž And thats the way Coach Mauer sees superstition. When youre looking for answers, it helps you believe in your-self. It does affect your mindset,Ž he says. If youre confident and you think thats the reason youre doing well, generally when youre at ease, whatever youre doing, baseball or whatever, you think you have more of an opportunity to succeed.ŽOnce in a blue moonAn ordained minister, Wendyl Jay prefers priestess, though she usually doesnt go by any title at all. She used to be into Wicca, now shes not into anything organized; says its best to say shes a happy pagan. She believes in Mother Earth, God/Goddess, fair-ies and angels. She does not believe in coincidence. She does not believe in the devil. That whole concept was always weird to me,Ž she says. As a little girl she lived between Santo Domingo and Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico. She now runs the Manna Reading Center, a metaphysical shop on Fowler Street, near downtown Fort Myers. But it was out west where she observed, many superstitions inher-ently protect children. She spins the tale of the lady standing in white, She would stand outside your window, call to you and try to lure you out,Ž Ms. Jay says. Then she would snatch you in her arms and you would never be heard from again.Ž This terrified Ms. Jay as a child, but it kept her and her friends in their beds, not venturing out into the night, something we adventurous children always wanted to do.Ž She likens superstitions to hearsay or hand-me-downs, something that still carries a thread of truth, Every-thing always does,Ž she says. It just doesnt have to be taken to such extents.Ž She describes astrological cycles and the calendar as circular. Three Fridays the 13th in the same year has happened before. Three Friday the 13ths in the same year will happen again. The last occurrence was in 2009, the next is set for 2015. Its like blue moons,Ž she says, when two full moons fall in the same cal-endar month. You know that saying, Once in a blue moon, well every once in a while, it actually happens.Ž But what she would like people to remember most when it comes to this superstitious day, You are the dreamer,Ž she says. Friday the 13ths the dream.Ž Q MAUER JAY Something to “COO” about in West Palm BeachIn 1972, Jack Nicklaus designed his rst, and what many believe his best, course in Florida.

A10 WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY 4755 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens (561) 799-05559186 Glades Road, Boca Lyons Plaza(561) 477-4774 Lic. #HS8984 Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have shown in animal models that the loss of memory that comes with aging is not necessarily a permanent thing. In a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Acad-emy of Science,Ž Ron Davis, chair of the department of neuroscience at Scripps Florida, and Ayako Tonoki-Yamaguchi, a research associate in Mr. Daviss lab, took a close look at mem-ory and memory traces in the brains of both young and old fruit flies. What they found is that like other organ-isms „ from mice to humans „ there is a defect that occurs in memory with aging. In the case of the fruit fly, the ability to form memories lasting a few hours (intermediate-term memory) is lost due to age-related impairment of the function of certain neurons. Intrigu-ingly, the scientists found that stimu-lating those same neurons can reverse these age-related memory defects. This study shows that once the appropriate neurons are identified in people, in principle at least, one could potentially develop drugs to hit those neurons and rescue those memories affected by the aging process,Ž Mr. Davis said. In addition, the biochem-istry underlying memory formation in fruit flies is remarkably conserved with that in humans so that everything we learn about memory formation in flies is likely applicable to human memory and the disorders of human memory.Ž While no one really understands what is altered in the brain during the aging process, in the current study the scien-tists were able to use functional cellular imaging to monitor the changes in the flys neuron activity before and after learning. We are able to peer down into the fly brain and see changes in the brain,Ž Mr. Davis said. We found changes that appear to reflect how intermediate-term memory is encoded in these neurons.Ž Olfactory memory, which was used by the scientists, is the most widely stud-ied form of memory in fruit flies „ basi-cally pairing an odor with a mild elec-tric shock. These tactics produce short-term memories that persist for around a half-hour, intermediate-term memory that lasts a few hours, and long-term memory that persists for days. The team found that in aged animals, the signs of encoded memory were absent after a few hours. In that way, the scientists also learned exactly which neurons in the fly are altered by aging to produce intermediate-term memory impairment. This advance, Mr. Davis notes, should greatly help scientists understand how aging alters neuronal function. Intriguingly, the scientists took the work a step further and stimulated these neurons to see if the memory could be rescued. To do this, the scientists placed either cold-activated or heat-activated ion channels in the neurons known to become defective with aging and then used cold or heat to stimulate them. In both cases, the intermediate-term memory was successfully rescued. The study, Aging Impairs Intermediate-Term Behavioral Memory by Dis-rupting the Neuron Memory Trace,Ž was supported by the Ellison Medical Foundation and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. Q Scripps Jupiter scientists report breakthrough in treatment for age-related memory lossSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDAVIS The National Institutes of Health has awarded The Scripps Research Institute $2 million to study the role of a pathway in the development and maintenance of B-cell lymphoma, a type of cancer that begins in the immune system and turns normal disease fighting cells into cancers. The disease affects immune cells known as lympho-cytes, which are part of our white blood cells. John Cleveland, PhD, chair of the department of cancer biology on the Scripps Florida campus in Jupiter, will be the principal investigator for the five-year study. B-cell lymphomas tend to occur in older patients and in those people whose immune system has been com-promised. It is one of the most common blood cancers in the United States and kills about 20,000 Americans each year. The new project will focus on the role of Myc oncoproteins „ the products of Myc oncogenes „ which are activated in over half of all human tumor types. Myc oncoproteins accelerate the rate of cell growth, which increases the risk of acquiring additional mutations that allow a premalignant cell to develop into a full-blown tumor. In this project, the Scripps lab will investigate the role of a pathway that controls the destruc-tion of a class of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that encode proteins that reg-ulate the development and maintenance of tumors. This grant allows us to focus on a new pathway that is controlled by Myc that we think is suitable to target for the development of new anti-cancer drugs,Ž said Mr. Cleveland, who has led numerous studies shedding light on this oncogene. We are very hopeful that learning more about this process will open the door for the development of new treatments.Ž Q Jupiter scientists get $2 million for cancer-killing study SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY CLEVELAND “This study shows that once the appropriate neurons are identi ed in people, in principle at least, one could potentially develop drugs to hit those neurons and rescue those memories affected by the aging process.” – Ron Davis

Expires 5/10/2012Pam walked through the doorway, after a grueling day at the office. There were dishes in the sink, and her husband, Ted was watching a sitcom re-run. It took everything for her to hold her tongue. Instead, she brightly asked him how his day was. He answered her defensively and said: This is the first break Ive taken all day. Ive spent the whole day on the internet sending out resumes.Ž Pam didnt believe him, but wasnt going to start. Theyd been especially careful with each other since the blow up last month. Ugly words had escalated out of control. It happened on a day that Pam had been especially overwhelmed at work, and had received a humiliating call from the bank that their mortgage was in arrears. Ted had already been out of work for four months with no prospects. She was feeling cranky and put upon and didnt have the strength to follow through with her original promise to herself to remain upbeat and encouraging, and to hold her fears inside. She had accused Ted of not looking hard enough to find a job and for being inconsiderate for not keeping up with the housework. He looked stricken, and then coldly said, I guess Im just a big loser. Im sorry youre so disappointed in me.Ž Since then, Ted had been polite, but distant. She knew she had hurt him deeply at a time when his self-esteem was severely compromised. She would do anything to make things feel right again, but she was hurting also. And, the person she had always turned to for support was struggling, and, sadly, was part of the problem.We are living in unprecedented economic times, where even the most capable of employees may be let go, and competent, motivated job seekers may hit dead ends, despite their best efforts. Losing a job is usually a terrible blow to a persons self-respect and level of confidence. With the large number of people who are unemployed and the record amount of time it may take for them to find new positions, there may be a legitimate fear that finding a position of equal stature and compensation may be a daunting prospect. Many of us define ourselves by our contribu-tions to the workplace and the com-munity, and may assume that the job loss will compromise our standing. The entire family is greatly impacted, and the fallout is felt not only in the pocketbook, but, in how they relate to one another and the outside world. Both partners may feel undue pressure to remain optimistic and upbeat when, in fact, each of them may be grieving deeply. Each may harbor increasingly more unchari-table feelings toward the other that they darent express. Simultaneously, they may wrongly make assump-tions about what the other might be feeling, (but are too ashamed or intimidated to ask.) Prior relation-ship conflicts may become exacer-bated and tempers may flair. Holding in anxieties and fears may be a well-intended attempt to be supportive and protective, but may unfortunate-ly contribute to a feeling of isolation and increased anxiety. This isolation felt may be further compounded if the couple is forced to downsize their lifestyle and limit social activities because of the cost. Pride and embarrassment may pre-vent the couple from opening up to friends. In doing so, they may end up distancing themselves from possible sources of support and comfort and may also cut off valuable networking and potential job leads. Parenting may be impacted as well, because of depleted emotion-al reserves and patience. It will be important for parents to explain life-style changes to their children in a sensitive age appropriate manner. Children may show strong feelings if they are asked to give up things they have become accustomed to, but will often show impressive resilience and understanding. Young children are usually egocentric and may blame themselves for the family problems. They will look for reassurance that their parents can be counted on. When age appropriate, including children in discussions of how fam-ily members can support each other should serve as a valuable life les-son. It will be helpful for the family to retain a sense of normalcy, with an expectation that daily routines continue. Importantly, this time of challenge can also become a time of reaching for resilience as courageous cou-ples strive to clarify their values and commitment to each other. If family members pledge to listen carefully and respectfully to the others posi-tion they may become more attuned to the others anxieties and fears, and eventually become each others cheerleader and strength, working as a team to set priorities and goals. Together, they may find ways to truly enjoy themselves by seeking meaningful experiences that dont cost money. Discovering the plea-sure of family picnics, joint volunteer activities and extended family get-togethers can be a source of shared camaraderie. Parents may be able to role model to their children the importance of valued relationships, even as they all grapple with the loss of coveted material possessions and activities. We all know how emotionally and physically debilitating stress can be. It will be important to eat properly, exercise regularly and to get rest. Many people unexpectedly discover that severe challenges can be a source of renewed commitment and compassion. When families are able to remind themselves what they DO have, rather than what they have lost, they have taken an important step to support each other and find solutions.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYarranging his murder. In the book Fools ParadiseŽ „ published in 2009, the year Mr. Novack Jr.s murder first made headlines „ author Steven Gaines quotes him recalling his youth, Let me tell you, I never had a childhood. I was always among adults. I had several nannies but I didnt know what it was like to be a normal kid play-ing in the neighbor-hood. I lived on the seventeenth floor of a hotel, and if I met some kids they were only around for four days with their parents on vacation.Ž But if Novack Jr. was no fan of his hotel upbringing, hotel employees felt similarly about him. He was in every-bodys hair,Ž former Fontainebleau publicist Lenore Toby told Mr. Gaines. We used to call him Benjy because he was a little tyrant, and he hated it. My name is Benjamin, he used to say. He had no discipline whatsoever, and his supervisors were the security guards in the hotel and, as a result, thats what he wanted to be, a security guard.Ž The Novack family „ Ben Sr., his wife, Bernice and young Ben „ lived in a four-bedroom oceanfront suite, the view from which was seen in the origi-nal Oceans 11.Ž In the book Miami Babylon,Ž author Gerald Posner offers a litany of the hotels other attributes: There were tennis courts, yacht docks, Roman-style baths, sundecks and solariums, an ice-skating rink, putting greens, billiard rooms, plus all the req-uisite restaurants and nightclubs.Ž The quotable Mr. Lapidus, who was ridiculed by architectural critics for the hotels excesses, held an oft-voiced belief, one that serves as the theme for the grand stage he envisioned: Too much is never enough.Ž That surely seemed true of Ben Novack Jr. The stage was set for all that was to come, both good and bad.“He likes rough stuff”News accounts of Mr. Novack Jr.s brutal murder „ and the subsequent arrest of his wife Narcy Novack „ read like noir detective novels of the1940s. The whole sordid business came to light on July 12, 2009, after Mr. Novacks body was found in Room 453 of the Westchester Hilton in Rye Brook, N.Y. Hed been bound, bludgeoned with a set of dumbbells, his eyes cut out. Immediately after the murder, Narcy Novack gave inves-tigators her account of that morning. She was up early, she told them during a question-and-answer session that reportedly lasted 12-plus hours; hed been awake when she left their room, shortly after 7 a.m., to check on breakfast for an Amway convention theyd arranged. Less than an hour later, she said, she returned and nearly tripped over his body. The Novacks had traveled to New York for the Amway gathering. Mr. Novack Jr. had not grown up to be a security guard. His father lost the Fon-tainebleau to bankruptcy in 1977, and in the years that followed, the younger Mr. Novack established and operated Convention Concepts Unlimited, a multimillion-dollar venture. Run from his 6,000-square-foot mansion in Fort Lauderdale, it organized and oversaw business conventions like this one, his last. Videotape obtained by Miamis CBS4, and carried on its website, shows Narcy Novack answering investigators questions. I walk in and I trip on some-thing, and I realize hes on the floor,Ž she says on the tape. Later, recounting the couples sex life, she tells them, He likes rough stuffŽ and describes a sometimes-volatile relationship, also describing his obses-sions with Batman and pornography involving ampu-tees. She steadfastly denies any guilt, tell-ing her questioners, I have nothing to do with my husbands death.Ž Investigators thought otherwise. They discarded an early notion that Mr. Novacks death had resulted from sex games gone awry and theorized, instead, that Narcy Novack not only conspired with her husbands killers but also gave them entry into the room. Wait a minute, youre telling me I saw the people that went into the room,Ž she asks at one point during questioning. Im saying you opened the door for them,Ž the detective responds.Obsessed with Batman Any story, any drama, can be told simply and chronologically, but some require the occasional flashback, and this is one: In his later years, Ben Novack Sr. kept company with Juana M. Rodri-guez, a former Miss Uruguay who was decades younger than he. Not many years later, in like-father-like-son fash-ion, Mr. Novack Jr. fell for a Latina beauty of his own: When they met, Narcisa Cira Veliz Pacheco reportedly was working as an exotic dancer, stage-named Sylvia, in a now-defunct strip club in Hialeah. Ben the Younger was a man of intense passions. One was for all things Batman. He collected a multi-million-dollar array of the comic book hero memorabilia. One prized possession: a custom-designed 1977 Lincoln Bat-mobile. In one news account following his death, it was suggested that Narcy Novack was yet another rich mans acquisition. Still, the couple was mar-ried for 19 years, so, clearly, something was working well. A photo of the two in happier times shows Narcy Novack to be an attractive woman with curly, shoulder-length blond hair, amply endowed and fairly bursting out of a spangled, low-cut top. In later pictures „ her police mug shot among them „ her hair is dark and straight, her face unsmiling. Who gets the money? Narcy Novack, of Fort Lauderdale, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and racketeering in connec-tion with a murder-for-hire scheme in which she and her brother allegedly killed Ben Novack Jr. The pair is also charged with hiring two hit men to knock off his 86-year-old mother, Ber-nice Novack, who was found beaten to death in her Fort Lauderdale home in April 2009, just three months before her son was slain. Four days short of the one-year anniversary of Mr. Novacks death, the plot thickened: The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, announced the indict-ments of Narcy Novack, then 53, her brother Cristobal Veliz and two other men, on charges of interstate domestic violence and stalking. As described in the indictment,Ž Mr. Bharara said at the time, the plot that led to the bru-tal death of Ben Novack was a family affair.Ž George Venizelos of the FBIs New York field office weighed in, too, say-ing, The killing of Ben Novack was not a spur of the moment crime of passion. It was the end game of considerable planning.Ž The charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. Multiple calls seeking comment from Narcy Novacks attorney, Howard E. Tanner, wentMURDERFrom page A1 A postcard depicts the Fontainebleu in its mid-20th-century heyday, when Ben Novack Jr. lived with his family in a four-bedroom oceanfront suite at the hotel.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 NEWS A17 unreturned. Cut to South Florida, February 2012, when the bizarrely tangled family affairŽ escalated into a full-scale family feud, one that made the $64,000 Ques-tionŽ look like small change: Did Narcy Novack orchestrate her own widow-hood? And, if so, could the Novack fam-ily fortune be kept from benefiting her, her daughter from a previous relation-ship and her twin grandsons? Palm Beach Gardens attorney Mark Hanson filed a Petition to Determine Heirs in Broward County probate court on behalf of Ben Novack Jr.s aunt and three Novack cousins. We are trying to have Narcy Novack declared ineligible to collect on her husbands estate,Ž Mr. Hanson said, the theory being that you cant collect if youre responsible for the death.Ž Should Narcy Novack be found guilty of setting up her husbands murder, the disposition of the Novack millions could depend on Floridas so-called Slayer Rule. State statute 732.802 codifies the legal maxim Nullus commodum capere potest de injuria sua propia legalŽ: No one shall take advantage of his own wrong. In other words, as the law states, a killer forfeits all benefits ... with respect to the decedents estate.Ž In Florida, it has never been decided whether the family of a person found guilty of murder can benefit, Mr. Han-son says. But even if she is acquitted, he plans to pursue a civil route to deny her benefits. Civil cases utilize a lesser standard of evidence than criminal cases to deter-mine guilt. He cited the O.J. Simpson case, in which Mr. Simpson was acquit-ted in the deaths of his ex-wife and her friend Ronald Goldman, but a civil trial jury found him liable for the wrongful death of Mr. Goldman and awarded the Goldman family $33 million. Daytona-based private investigator and international genealogist Harvey Morse read about the Novack murder case in the newspaper and assigned himself a mission: Find Novack family blood relatives who might legitimately be heirs to the estates of Ben Novack Jr. and his mother, 86-year-old Bernice Novack. Bernice Novacks death preceded her sons by a mere three months and, initially, was attributed to a series of accidental falls in her Fort Lauderdale home. Then, last year, yet another sub-plot surfaced: A federal indictment charged Narcy Novack with arranging that mur-der, as well. My following the case is based on my background in law enforcement and locating missing persons,Ž Mr. Morse said in a phone interview. I thought, What about the slayer statute? What about [Narcy Novacks] daughter and grandsons? I said to myself, Im gonna go find the [Novack] relatives.Ž Mr. Morse found four: Maxine Fiel, the sister of Bernice Novack, and Mr. Novack Jr.s first cousins Andrea Danenza Wynn, Jerome Joseph Danen-za and Gerald P. Brezner. Andrea Wynn is married to Las Vegas hotel magnate Steve Wynn. At issue, Mr. Morse says, is the possibility that, if Narcy Novacks daughter or grandsons were to inherit Novacks estate, the money could conceivably benefit Narcy Novack. She sits in jail,Ž he said, spinning out a possible scenario. They get the money. She calls and asks for a loan to hire a defense attorney.Ž The search cost the Novack relatives nothing. As for Mr. Morse, The only way I will ever get paid is if the heirs actually get paid. Otherwise, I dont get a dime.ŽTogether in death?Ben Novack Jr.s 35-page will leaves the majority of his estate „ estimated at between $6 million and $10 million, with the possibility of more in off-shore accounts „ to his wife, a smaller amount to her daughter, May Abad, and two teenage grandsons; it also leaves all tangible propertiesŽ „ household effects, jewelry, furniture, automobiles and collections „ to his wife or, had she died first, to his mother. Mr. Novacks tangible assets reportedly include the Batmobile and his extensive collection of Batman memo-rabilia. A sizable portion of Mr. Novacks holdings has been sold or auctioned off, the money held in trust, according to Mr. Hanson, the Palm Beach Gardens attorney. As the drama nears a final curtain, there is one more bit of irony, that Mr. Novacks will also leaves explicit burial instructions: The casketed remainsŽ of Narcy and Ben Novack Jr., it directs, should be interred side-by-sideŽ at the family mausoleum at Mount Lebanon cemetery in Glendale, Queens, New York.

Dual-purpose furniture has been made for centuries. By the 1700s, there were chairs with large, round backs that flipped down on the top of the arms to make a table. There also were chairs that could be flipped over to be used as library steps. In the 1800s, new types of springs and hinges made it possible to manufacture a flip-down bed that could be stored in a closet, or card tables with hidden pull-out leaves that transformed into a dining table. A famous French architect and designer, Armand-Albert Rateau, designed a clever dual-purpose chair in about 1925. The chair had an oak frame with ebony veneer. The back of the chair was upholstered with silk and straw. The seat back was hinged so that it folded down on the rest of the frame to form a low table. The Art Deco chair design was unique and could be use-ful today in a small apartment. Q: I bought an old barbershop and all the antiques in it, including 1920s bar-ber chairs, tons of razors, razor sharpen-ers, strops, combs and about 25 ceramic shaving mugs decorated with words and designs and signed on the bottom with makers marks. My favorite mug, titled 10th Infantry,Ž has a painting of soldiers and a bugler. I dont want most of these things. How do I sell all of this? A: There are collectors who would be interested in nearly everything in your shop. The most-expensive chairs are those with elaborate iron trim. They sell for hun-dreds of dollars. And a rare occupational shaving mug „ the kind with the name of an occupation and an image of a person working „ can be worth even more than a chair. An AeronautŽ mug picturing a parachut-ist auctioned for the record price of $45,000 in 2008. You could sell the things yourself, but if youre not familiar with the collect-ing world, you could ask an expert, dealer, appraiser or auction house to help you. If the collection is in excellent shape, it probably would be best to contact a large auc-tion house that sells shav-ing mugs, barbershop signs and barber equipment. The smaller items can be sold in groups (lotsŽ). It is easy to find auctions of barbershop items by searching online. Q: We own 12 plates that have a wide gold embossed border and multicolored flowers in the middle. Theyre 11 inches in diameter, and I think theyre called charger plates. The back of each plate is marked with a crown above the letters H & C.Ž Underneath that are the words Selb BavariaŽ and Heinrich Co.Ž Do you know what these plates are worth and how I can sell them? A: Franz Heinrich founded his porcelain company in Selb, Bavaria, Germany, in 1896. The company became part of Villeroy & Boch in 1976. The mark on your plates was used in the 1930s. Q: We have an original typed letter handed down in the family from a rela-tive who was a union lead-er in the 1950s. The letter, dated Aug. 30, 1958, is from Sen. John F. Kennedy and refers to two enclosed speechesŽ he made on the Senate floor, one about national defense and the other about labor reform. The letter is signed John Kennedy.Ž The stationery has a verifiable watermark and we have had the letter authenticated by a local historical society. What is it worth? A: Were not sure if you had the stationery or the autograph or both authen-ticated. And we also dont know if your local historical society employs or has a relationship with an auto-graph authenticator. Its a tricky business, especially with public officials. Kennedy is known to have used autopens as early as the 1950s before he was elected president in 1960. It also is generally known that Kennedy often asked his secretary to sign his letters. If the letter is original but the autograph an autopen signature, the letter would sell for under $100. If the signature is real, the letter is worth $2,000 or more. Q: My parents received a china candy dish as a wedding gift in 1944. It has a ver-tical brass handle in the center. The mark on the bottom is a pair of straight-sided Ms within a diamond, all within a fancy green-and-yellow cartouche. Under the cartouche is the stamped phrase, Made in Japan.Ž Can you tell me who made the dish and what its worth? A: The mark on your dish has been identified as one used by Moriyama Pottery, a company founded around 1911 in Mori-machi, a town in Shizuoka Pre-fecture. The china dish either was made before World War II, or the family story about when your parents received the gift is incorrect. The Made in JapanŽ mark was used again starting in late 1949. Tip: Paperweights that are displayed on a wooden table in front of a sunny window may magnify the suns rays enough to scorch the tabletop.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY I have one rule for the man Im dating. Actually, I have a lot of rules. But one of the most important is that he must never, ever see me getting ready. Im talking about when I get ready in the morning, when I get ready for a Saturday night out, when I get ready to run to Pub-lix. No watching me get ready, period. The truth is a lot of work goes into looking good. For many women that means eyeshadow, eye-liner, blush, lip tint, lip gloss, lip stain, bronzer, concealer, foun-dation, translucent powder; and hair products „ detangler, volumizer, mousse. Not to mention a blow dryer and a diffuser, curling iron if youve got the time. Then there are the clothes. The underthings, the layering T-shirts, the jackets and jewelry and shoes. And the agonizing: This one? Or this one? The self-doubt and insecurity even as we step out the door. All that to show up for a date looking effortlessly put together. I want the man who courts me to think my private face is the same as my public face, that how I look when we meet for dinner is how I looked when I got out of bed that morning. Im afraid if he witnesses the process, our relationship will lose its magic. Like a visit to the sausage fac-tory, once you know what goes into the making you can never enjoy it again. In order not to spoil the romance, some things are best kept hidden. As it turns out, women arent the only ones with a best-kept-hidden side. This week I had dinner with two male friends, a visit to a different sort of sausage factory. These are men who are perpetually on the prowl, the kind of guys who cant make eye contact over drinks because theyre looking over my shoulder to scout the bar for beau-tiful women. When Im with them, I feel less like a lady and more like a dude. So, I met this girl last night,Ž Mitch said over his club sandwich. Is today too soon to call her?Ž Greg cut the air with a sweet potato fry. Too soon,Ž he said. You need to give it a week.Ž What ever happened to the woman from your class?Ž I asked Greg. He shrugged one shoulder and took a sip of his Mountain Dew. Shes a ho.Ž Dont say that,Ž I said. No, she was a ho,Ž Mitch agreed. Like that other one „ what was her name?Ž What followed was a play-by-play of their recent female conquests. They compared notes and talked about the best parts of a woman (personality did not make the list). Where were the sweet, romantic guys I thought I knew? I ate my burger in silence and occasionally shook my head. Maybe its best for all of us, I thought, not to know too much about the private workings of the opposite sex. Better to be ignorant of what really goes on inside the factory; we can only be disappointed if we peer into the vat. Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA visit to the sausage factory artis

Nevertheless, the luck factor cannot be entirely eliminated. For instance, the succession of opponents you meet might or might not play well against you, which certainly will have an important bearing on how you fare. Also, you (or your opponents) might get to excellent contracts that go down because of horrendous distribu-tion, or get to poor contracts that make because of highly favorable distribution. Consider this deal played in the Blue Ribbon Pairs many years ago by Dorothy Hayden Truscott and B. Jay Becker. They reached three notrump on the bidding shown. Mrs. Truscotts three-notrump bid with the singleton king of clubs was certainly imaginative and was amply rewarded when she made the contract after West led a low club. She won Easts queen with the king and ran six diamonds, subjecting West to severe pressure. He followed twice and was able to discard a heart and a spade comfortably, but then, in order to protect his king of spades, he was forced to dis-card two clubs. Mrs. Truscott next led a heart. West took the ace and cashed three clubs, but that was the end of the line as West was forced to lead from the K-8 of spades at the end. You could call the hand a brilliant success „ if you were so minded „ but, all the same, there was a lot of luck attached to it. At another table, against similar bid-ding, West made the inspired lead of the ace of clubs against three notrump, and East-West collected the first seven tricks to put the contract down three! Fortunately for Mrs. Truscott and Becker, they were sitting at the right table. Q CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER With a little bit of luck


B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 12-18, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIts also a labor of love. Ms. Emerman says her budget is tiny by com-parison to other festivals. Its a very, very small budget „ under $100,000. I put all of me into it, as do our volunteers,Ž she says. Regional film festivals typically have close to seven figure budgets. This one used to.Ž There is a pay-off, she says.Ive learned so much from these filmmakers. Every film was inspired by something somehow. It all came from somewhere,Ž she says. She and her committee review nearly 1,000 films before selecting the 4 per-cent or so of those that will be seen at the festival. Were looking for the quality of the presentation, not just the message. Im not going to take a political stance on a film. Its giving the message in the right format,Ž Ms. Emerman says, adding, We want to give the moviegoer a real movie experience.Ž Steven Camp, CFO of Desert Wind Films, agrees. Mr. Camp, who lives in North Palm Beach, is set to release Brothers Keeper,Ž a film with a message about for-giveness. The film was adapted from the short story The Gift and the Giver,Ž about twin brothers who face the decision of whether to seek vengeance after one is jailed on trumped-up charges in 1950s Georgia. Scenes were shot in Bainbridge, Ga., a town that embraced the filmmakers. We had a very highly publicized trial and we heard about this beautiful courthouse in Bainbridge,Ž Mr. Camp says. The producers spoke to the head of the chamber of commerce in Bain-bridge, who said the courthouse would be perfect for a period piece set in the 40s and 50s. He said, Two years ago, we just took the spittoons out,Ž Mr. Camp says. The producers also needed a vintage high school and, wouldnt you know it, the junior high had just moved to a new campus and the old, period-perfect one was empty, waiting for film crews. A visit to nearby Cairo turned up a jail cellblock. The community really, really opened up to us and brought us in and supported us,Ž he says. There were more than 100 extras in the film. Jurors were investors and supporters from within the South Georgia area where the film was shot. Local students participated in the prom scenes. People from the community brought the cast and crew cookies and soup. Twins Alex and Graham Miller play the brothers, but Mr. Camp says the real casting coup came when country singer Travis Tritt agreed to come onboard. Travis is a very spiritual man. He did phenomenal playing this character. It was the first time Travis had done a movie where he didnt play a cameo,Ž he says. Hollywood veterans Ray Wise, W. Earl Brown, Robyn Lively, Daniel Samonas and MacKenzie Mauzy round out the cast. And its all coming together in South Florida. We found financial partners in LionQuest Holdings here in Palm Beach. We are in the process of launching Desert Wind Studios, which is going to combine every aspect of filmmaking „ financing, development, production, branding and marketing, and were bringing in our own internal distribu-tion model,Ž Mr. Camp says. The financial center will be in Palm Beach, production and distribution offices will be in Los Angeles and branding and slate development offices will be in Nashville. The company will aim for high production standards. Faith-based films recently have had the stigma of being poor produc-tion quality and not a lot of recogniz-able talent,Ž he says. A lot of times, its churches making films for other churches.Ž That means bringing high production quality and recognized talent together. The goal right now is to release the film the week after Easter 2013. That gives them time to market the film and to focus on their forgiveness initiative Both efforts transcend issues of religion, Mr. Camp says. It doesnt matter if youre Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, it doesnt matter. The message of forgiveness is there, yet, if youre not a believer, when you go to watch Brothers KeeperŽ youre not going to feel like youre going to run out of the theater because youre being preached to,Ž he says. But the films are not all faith-based.It changes from year to year what people are picking up on. And Im talk-ing about the total film package. The documentaries are so well done. Its hard streaming back the documenta-ries,Ž the film festivals Ms. Emerman says. One year is on sports. Then theres the disease year. This year there were several with Chinese con-nections, so to speak.Ž And as the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, there are fewer films devoted to that topic. But youre seeing the same stories in Rwanda and other parts of the world, and we have to remember those stories as well,Ž she says. Another trend: We did not get as many horror films this year as we had in the past,Ž she says. The festival also will screen its first Japanese anime this year, and Ms. Emerman says she was impressed by the quality of films she has seen from French-Canada directors. In addition to those, the festival did get two films inspired by the tale of Hamlet. One, which stars Ms. Lockhart and Shelley Long, is Zombie Hamlet.Ž In John Murlowskis film, a desperate director dreams of creating a Civil War-era Hamlet.Ž When money for the production dries up, he throws a few zombies in to make it commercial. Its totally not what I expected,Ž Ms. Emerman says. Nor is Alex Hyde-Whites Three Days (Of Hamlet).Ž Billed as Shakespeare in Love for the reality set,Ž a cast that includes Richard Chamberlain, Peter Wood-ward, Joseph Culp and Stefanie Powers rehearses and performs a stage reading of Shakespeares classic. Along the way, Mr. Hyde-White weaves in their reflections on the roles they play. When you work with people, you know, you cant shut up. You never see the backstage experience,Ž he says by phone from Los Angeles. This was a very unique way to bring out genuine character, inside and out.Ž Mr. Chamberlain played the prince of Denmark more than 40 years ago, after Dr. KildareŽ left the air. When you see Richard talk about his experience. The here and now, and his early years after Dr. Kildare, when he went off to England to play Hamlet, you get a deeper understanding,Ž Mr. Hyde-White says. It is in that telling that audiences learn about the characters „ and the actors behind them. We dont show much of Hamlet. It could be five hours. We probably have 40 minutes, maybe less, of the play; 60 percent of it is personal reflection.Ž Its a first directing gig for Mr. HydeWhite, who has worked as an actor and appeared in such films as Pretty Woman,Ž Catch Me If You Can,Ž Gods and GeneralsŽ and Fantastic Four.Ž Stefanie I had known for years. She was a family friend,Ž he says. I had worked with Peter Woodward back in England. Joseph Culp and I had starred in the Fantastic Four.Ž Mr. Hyde-White whetted his appetite for acting by following the career of his father Wilfrid Hyde-White, who per haps is best kno wn for his portrayal of Colonel Pickering in My Fair Lady.Ž Coming to the film festival stirs memories of the days when his father performed in musicals at the Royal Poinciana Playhouse in Palm Beach. I remember the Poinciana Playhouse and The Breakers being these majestic places,Ž says Hyde-White, who now is 50. I have fond memories of frolicking in Palm Beach in season.Ž Perhaps he will make it across the bridge to see those places of his youth. There is a decidedly northward shift to this years festival. The bulk of the films will be screened this year at the Muvico Parisian at CityPlace and at the Cobb Downtown at the Gardens; shorts will be screened at the Lake Worth Play-houses Stonzek Theatre, and there will a few events at Mizner Parks Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton. The area has grown,Ž Ms. Emerman says. Both of the theaters are very supportive.Ž Thats a good thing for the festival and for the local economy. The directors and actors who attend the festival to support their films also pay hotel bills, taxi fares and restaurant tabs out of their own pockets, she says. None of that is coming out of local dollars. Its not just a cultural impact.Ž And the fact Ms. Emerman, the small staff and a coterie of volunteers do it on a shoestring makes all the 20-hour workdays worthwhile. If you put dollars and cents to this festival and what we pull off, it would be in that high-end range,Ž she says.

It has been renamed the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Paul and Sandra Golder Conservatory of Performing Arts in the couples honor. Both originally from the New York area, Mr. Goldner spent his career in the computer services industry. He founded and ran Database America, a leading sup-plier of consumer and business informa-tion and a pioneer in online marketing databases. Ms. Goldner spent many years working in marketing for the pharmaceu-tical industry, according to a statement from the Maltz. Their interests focus on music, the arts and supporting services dedicated to the welfare of children. It is so important for young people to have the opportunity to be able to get up in front of a group and sing, act, dance, perform,Ž Mr. Goldner said in the statement. No matter what these children decide to do, they will take something away from their experience here at the conservatory that will serve them for the rest of their lives. I cannot think of a better place for children to grow and prosper.Ž The conservatory was established in 2007, when the theater built classrooms and studios designed to serve hundreds of students in after-school, weekend and summer programs. Locally, the Goldners are involved in numerous organizations, including Jew-ish Adoption and Foster Care Options (JAFCO), which rescues children in peril.

NoThis is a reunion you definitely want to skip. From the opening scene of American Reunion,Ž the fourth big-screen install-ment of the American PieŽ franchise, you know the creators are drink-ing from an empty keg. In a too-familiar scene, we once again find Jim (Jason Biggs) trying to masturbate, only to have an uncomfortable inter-ruption: his son. Meanwhile, his wife Michelle (Alyson Hanni-gan) is in the bathtub masturbat-ing. This is supposed to be so outlandish its funny, but it just feels desperate. Sadly, almost all of American ReunionŽ reeks of desperation. Theres no good earthly reason for this movie, unless the suits at Universal are taking pity on the failing careers of the cast. Thirteen years after graduation, Jim, Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Stifler (Seann William Scott) reunite in East Great Falls for their high school reunion. While corporate stooge Jim and house-husband Kevin are married, Oz is a famous sportscaster dating a supermodel (Katrina Bowden) and Finch is a world traveler. As for Stifler, hes done nothing. The subplots are limited and redundant: Jim has awkward chats with his dad (Eugene Levy) and fends off a crush from a neighbor named Kara (Ali Cobrin), whom he used to babysit; Kevin consid-ers reuniting with Vicky (Tara Reid); Oz considers reuniting with Heather (Mena Suvari); Finch romances a formerly ugly girl (Dania Ramirez); and Stifler, to no ones surprise, tries to get laid. Its not just that co-writers and directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schloss-berg have nothing new for these char-acters to do; its that what we do get is bland and predictable and lasts far longer than it should. For example, Jim gets sidetracked taking care of Kara after she gets drunk. She comes on to him, takes her top off and then passes out in his lap. Ha, ha. He feels obligated to take her home, but enlists the help of the guys to get her upstairs without her parents knowing. This scene plays like Weekend at BerniesŽ but with nice boobs „ and no, its not nearly as good as it sounds. The lone highlight of that sequence „ and the entire movie, really „ is Stifler, whom Seann William Scott once again imbues with a lighthearted crass-ness that feels like a breath of imma-ture fresh air. Ever the life of the party and not understanding why his friends dont want to go crazy, Stifler has both the most awful and the most awesome things happen to him, and because of Scotts childish likeability, the man-child is always fun to watch. In fairness, this is worth noting: After American PieŽ came out in 1999, it spawned countless imitators and cheap knockoffs, which diluted the appeal of everything the original did well. So for American ReunionŽ to take shots at the same jokes 13 years later „ well, it feels old. And more importantly, the medioc-rity of middle age is not how we want to remember these guys. Q The Hunger Games +++ (Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson) Set in the future, Katniss (Lawrence) leaves her friend Gale (Hem-sworth) behind to fight to the death with Peeta (Hutcherson) and 22 other young adults in the titular Hunger Games.Ž It takes too long to get to the games, but once there, its sufficiently exciting and suspense-ful. Based on the Suzanne Collins novel. Rated PG-13. 21 Jump Street +++ (Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube) Youthful police officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) go undercover at a high school to infiltrate a drug ring. Off-the-wall funny and with great spirit, this serves as proof that cruddy old TV shows can make darn good movies. Rated R. Seeking Justice +++ (Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce) After his wife (Jones) is savagely 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 morality when its over. Rated R. Q LATEST FILMS‘American Reunion’ >> After the rst three “American” movies were released in theaters, culminating in “Ameri-can Wedding” in 2003, four more “American Pie Presents” movies were released straight to video, the last of which was “The Book of Love” in 2009. h t k a n „ dan CAPSULES

Beginning April 12 The Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery at Midtown will offer its latest exhibition titled, “The Rite of Spring.” The show will feature new work from the ArtCenter’s Artists’ Guild and will focus on everybody’s favorite topic this time of year: Spring. To kick off the show, the gallery will host an opening on April 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Guests will enjoy the latest art to “spring” up in the Midtown gallery, which began last fall as a pop-up venue using donated commercial space pro vided by Ram Realty Services. “Much of the work in the new show is traditional fare — essentially what you would expect from artists portraying spring,” says David Willison, an artist and coordinator for the gallery. This includes the detailed floral work of Carrie Vaintrub, a Hobe Sound artist and photographer whose intimate floral close-up work will help anchor the show. But there’s more. Viewers also will find a different take on the topic, includ-ing a darker, more foreboding view of the season as well as some abstract work that approaches spring from a more emotional point of view. As Mr. Willison notes, “Spring comes with tulips and tornadoes, and the season suggests a whole range of emotions and interpretations — not just pretty flowers.”The show also offers a second theme: music. “We wanted something a little deeper than just a spring show with flowers. So the artists chose to open things up a bit to include music. We settled on the title, ‘The Rite of Spring,’ because it com-bines spring with an allusion to the Igor Stravinsky composition,” he says. Music will be in the air the night of the opening, and although it won’t be Stravinsky, people will enjoy the sounds of Uproot Hootenanny. Uproot Hoote-nanny is one of the most unique and sought-after bands in Florida with its blend of folk, classic and modern rock, pop, Celtic, bluegrass and country music. They will appear as part of Midtown’s regular Music on the Plaza Series, which runs each Thursday night through the end of April.

Music on the Plaza … its a heart full of soul. Free Concerts | Free Parking | Lawn Chairs Welcome presented in the United States, not his homeland. It runs through April 29 at Dramaworks. In the world of Master Harold,Ž Hally has known Willie and Sam all his life, and is fond of both men. Their discussion on a rainy day illustrates the issues that continue to divide and unite a society. But do not expect Master Harold to hit you over the head with a message. This isnt really a protest play. It isnt an anti-apartheid play or any of that. Dare I say, it transcends protest. It kind of lets people know that the only true change is the change that comes from within, not from without. Thats what gets me about the play every day that I look at it, is that Sam chooses to be bigger than all of it and hes teaching me and Hally how to live bigger than our surroundings,Ž says Summer Hill Seven, who plays Willie. Much of that comes from the play itself. The writing and just the story its telling is unbelievably powerful and moving, both what it means thematical-ly as far as race relations, and what it means with these specific relationships and fathers and sons. ƒ It tells a big story and a little one, too,Ž says Jared McGuire, the Hally of this production. It gives cause for reflection.Apartheid went on until 1991, which was kind of mind-blowing to me. I grew up in the midto late 80s. I was in my 20s. I was the privileged white boy. I had a knowledge of apartheid, but when you talk about racism, I never had to deal with it. I was aware of it, but you kind of brush it under the carpet as a young man,Ž says William Hayes, producing artistic director at Dramaworks and director of this pro-duction of Master Harold.Ž His three actors are making their debuts at the theater in this production. Its the second Fugard play Drama-works has presented; it produced The Road to MeccaŽ several years ago. The reason for the selection of the play is what has become evident through the Obama years, there is still a tremendous racial divide in our coun-try, in our world,Ž Mr. Hayes says. It has affected everything in American society, he says. When he became president, I started getting hate mail, I started getting racial jokes and emails. Theres a great divide in our government „ in fact, its paralyzing our government because theres such a divide in our country.Ž But it was there all the time,Ž interjects W. Paul Bodie, who plays Sam. It didnt emanate because of Obama. It was already there.Ž There always is a bitter undercurrent, the men say. The issue of race is knit into the fabric of the world which were in. Its really, in the end, the ugly thing thats been under the surface the whole time that nobody really questions,Ž says Mr. McGuire. And the bleakness of racial conditions in South Africa? I saw the headlines and I read about it, but I had no idea what Man-dela had gone through. It wasnt until we started rehearsing and (Mr. Hayes) showed us a video about South Africa and apartheid, and then I became a lot more aware of what went down,Ž says Mr. Bodie. But as far as how the play relates to whats going on in the world today, I see the play as being mainly about humanity and dealing with dig-nity in humankind. The play doesnt really deal a whole lot with the racism itself. It deals with the relationship between Sam, Hally and Willie, and then the mother and the father.Ž Still, Master HaroldŽ is about coming together. In the play, theres a metaphor, a beautiful metaphor. Sam and Willie are in a dance competition. They compete and they waltz. This playwright beauti-fully uses that waltz as a metaphor for our want and dream and need for a society where all men dance together in unison without bumping into one another,Ž says Mr. Hayes.
