Just 100 women each armed with $1,000. Thats the premise of Impact 100, the group that awarded the Parent-Child Center an inaugural $100,000 grant to help launch a trauma team. The award was announced April 24 after five finalists made their cases to receive the grant during an American IdolŽ-style competition at Lynn Univer-sity in Boca Raton. I can tell you, personally, it was a very moving presentation because they put us in the shoes of a child who was being removed from all they know,Ž said Lisa Mulhall, president and co-founder of the Palm Beach County chapter of Impact 100, who said that even the losers of that competition were still winners „ each received a grant of $12,000 from Impact 100. The big winner, the Parent-Child Center, is a community mental health center founded in 1979 that offers a range of traditional, non-residential prevention, early intervention and behavioral health services including psychiatry, counseling and case management.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART A TTACK. 561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS.pbgmc.com/heartscreenings 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. John Peterson and I decided to become cops because of Frank Nelick. A tenured English professor at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Mr. Nelick was universally known as the coolest man who ever lived. He was also, paradoxically, a friend of the states top cop, Vern Miller, the scrappy attorney general. Mr. Miller agreed to open the doors for us to the Kansas State Police Academy on the prai-rie outside Hutchinson through a single month in the summer of 1972. Thats what it took then to get certified or recertified as a cop: 30 days on a deserted airbase with veteran Kansas police officers wielding .38 pistols and a strong mistrust of flowered VW vans. One of the instructors warned us vehemently against any we saw passing through our towns. We were to stop them whenever we saw them because their occupants would corrupt the town, the state and the nation with drugs, illicit sex (whatever that is, as Keith Richards says), and rock n roll. It was hippy profiling at its most unapologetic. A Texan by birth and upbringing, Mr. Nelick had flown light bombers off aircraft carriers in the Pacific during World War II. Later, hed converted to the Catholic Church, which did nothing to restrain his colorful behavior except require his atten-dance at mass and confession. He habitually tapped the ashes from his cigars into his cowboy boots while lecturing on John Miltons Paradise Lost,Ž for example. The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, or a hell of heaven,Ž Mr. Nelick intoned grandly. We were entirely seduced into believing it, even though he pointed out cheerfully that Milton had put those words in the devils mouth. He had other cool habits, too, like driving his red 1964 Corvette Stingray around Lawrence in the middle of the night with a bottle of vodka wedged into the tiny space behind the gear shift, while clutching a small book of verse in one hand. He would intervene to help someone on the street in the blink of an eye, a man on a quest to right wrongs, as we saw it. One morning he found Sally Schibler and me standing vacantly on the curb in front of a deserted Student Union at 6 a.m. Gallantly, he stopped, ushered us together into the single passenger seat of his red rocket, and took us out in the country north of town. There, he flew his machine up to 110 miles per hour on the well-grad-ed dirt roads, slicing through cornfields like a bullet, the trademark cigar clenched in his teeth. His bottle was half full, and he never offered us a drop. Occasionally he went to jail for getting in bar fights with Indians from the Haskell Institute, across town, which didnt hurt his reputation with us in the least, either. But for all his spotty trouble with the law, Mr. Nelick was a cop lover „ of good cops, not bad cops, he told us. Cops who treated each person fairly, regardless of race, creed, color or crime, but applied some mercy to their exercise in justice, when appropriate. Therefore Jew,Ž he would say, quoting Shakespeares play, The Merchant of Venice,Ž though justice be thy plea, consider this: that in the course of justice, none of us should see salvation. We do pray for mercy, and that same prayer doth teach us all to render the deeds of mercy.ŽIve never forgotten the good-cop distinction because it seems decent but touchy. How far can a cop carry that notion without becoming a one-man, one-woman judge and jury? The cops job, after all, is the law „ not The Truth. Isnt it? But Truth has a funny way of showing up at every scene, inno-cent or guilty, facts or no facts. It happened just the other day, when my sister-in-law, Gwen, arrived to visit with her 16-year-old daughter. They came in a big clean cream sedan with sparkling sil-ver hubcaps and slightly shaded windows „ two good-looking white women in the back seat of a fancy ride piloted by two good-looking black men. The driver was Genese Vertus, pastor of Tabernacle of Worship, Gwens fianc. He brought his cousin, a civil engineer visit-ing from Haiti. Im sure that had nothing to do with the fact that a Lee sheriffs deputy (I wont mention his name) pulled the car over even though he saw no driving infrac-tion, then administered the third degree, questioning the men about drugs in the car and detaining them for a few minutes. The deputy finally left them with a signed warning to wear their seatbelts. Heres one possible truth of that noncrime: a racist cop profiled two men for the color of their skin and the look of their ride. Thats not what Mr. Nelick had in mind. One day, he described some Harvard men who had decided to join the New York City Police Department in a new program that required them to walk the beat. Get to know everybody on a single block. Show them how to embrace the American dream, by tempering justice with mercy and understanding, thus end-ing crime and unhappiness forever. Dazzled by this approach to saving the world block by block with nothing more than a liberal arts degree, a badge, and palaver, we signed on. When we came back to campus from the police academy in the fall, we even worked as night dispatchers for campus security for a few months „ a less-than-compelling experience. Eventually, we gave up. Some of our best friends drove flowered vans, after all, and we hadnt been too impressed with the cops we saw in the first place. John went on to law school, I went on to a career singing kumbayaŽ for small change, and all of it vanished. Except that persistent question: What is a good cop? Ive seen some in the intervening years, and I still cant answer it. But every one of them displays independence, courage, humility, some wit, grace under pressure, an instinct for protecting the weak, and good sense „ along with a devotion to justice for all, tempered by mercy for the human condition.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONConrad the scrivener amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota is the chairman of the Senate Budget Com-mittee. That means hes the Democratic point man for the absolutely essential work of not coming up with a budget. Conrad has occasionally gone wobbly. Sometimes he has sounded danger-ously close to betraying the cause that his party has entrusted to him. Last month, the senator went on national TV to say he was going to have his commit-tee mark upŽ what he called a 10-year planŽ „ i.e., a budget. After briefly flirt-ing with this treachery, Conrad came back to his senses and recommitted himself to his duty to remain resolutely budget-less. He didnt hold a markup at all, which is the time-honored process by which a bill is debated, amended and voted on. Conrad dispensed with all such fluff and minutiae. He offered his own plan, loosely based on the work of the Bowles-Simpson deficit-reduction commission, shot down any foolishness about amending or voting, and pro-nounced himself well-pleased. Conrad had delivered yet again, by not deliver-ing a budget. If this seems an easy, almost noshow job to you, think again. There are two varieties of budgetary boldness. Theres bold like Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. This involves passing out of com-mittee detailed budget resolutions that go on to pass the entire chamber and to spark a full and frank debate about the nations fiscal future. Then theres Kent Conrad boldness. This involves having the fortitude to defend doing nothing with threadbare rationalizations and weaselly misdirections. Fresh from his stalwart act of nonbudgeting, Sen. Conrad said it was too hard to pass a budget in an election year. But Senate Democrats hadnt passed one in 2011 or 2010, either. This year is a presidential election year, 2011 was an off-year, and 2010 was a midterm election year. That covers every kind of year there is in Washington. By this standard, the Senate will have an annual excuse not to pass a budget resolution for the rest of time. The 1974 Budget Act says that, as a matter of law, the Senate Budget Com-mittee is to pass a resolution by April 1 and Congress as a whole to pass one by April 15. No matter. Kent Conrad is the Bartleby the Scrivener of budgeting: He prefers not to. The chairmans exertions, such as they are, serve the political inter-ests of his master, Senate Major-ity Leader Harry Reid. The leader doesnt want the fingerprints of Senate Demo-crats on a budget. What possible upside is there in telling the public, in some detail, how they will address the countrys grave fiscal challenges? This gambit, a running charade for years now, betrays the intellectual exhaustion of the last remaining Democratic major-ity on Capitol Hill „ too scared and too cynical to undertake even a rudimen-tary gesture toward governing. As for Sen. Kent Conrad, he is retiring at the end of the year. As a private citizen, he will be able to look back fondly at the extraordinary capstone of his 25-year career, when he literally set a new standard for success for chairmen of the Senate Budget Committee. Bravo, Mr. Chairman, bravo. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The NSA is watching youThree targeted Americans: A career government intelligence official, a film-maker and a hacker. None of these U.S. citizens was charged with a crime, but they have been tracked, surveilled, detained „ sometimes at gunpoint „ and interrogated, with no access to a lawyer. Each remains resolute in standing up to the increasing government crackdown on dissent. The intelligence official: William Binney worked for almost 40 years at the secretive National Security Agency (NSA), the U.S. spy agency that dwarfs the CIA. As technical director of the NSAs World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group, Binney told me, he was tasked to see how we could solve collection, analysis and reporting on military and geopolitical issues all around the world, every country in the world.Ž Throughout the 1990s, the NSA devel-oped a massive eavesdropping system code-named ThinThread, which, Binney says, maintained crucial protections on the privacy of U.S. citizens demanded by the U.S. Constitution. He recalled, After 9/11, all the wraps came off for NSA,Ž as massive domestic spying became the norm. He resigned on Oct. 31, 2001. Along with several other NSA officials, Binney reported his concerns to Con-gress and to the Department of Defense. Then, in 2007, as then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was being questioned on Capitol Hill about the very domes-tic spying to which Binney objected, a dozen FBI agents charged into his house, guns drawn. They forced aside his son and found Binney, a diabetic amputee, in the shower. They pointed their guns at his head, then led him to his back porch and interrogated him. Three others were raided that morning. Binney called the FBI raid retribu-tion and intimidation so we didnt go to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate and tell them, Well, heres what Gon-zales didnt tell you, OK.Ž Binney was never charged with any crime. The filmmaker: Laura Poitras is an Academy Award-nominated documenta-ry filmmaker, whose recent films include My Country, My Country,Ž about the U.S. occupation of Iraq, and The Oath,Ž which was filmed in Yemen. Since 2006, Poitras has been detained and ques-tioned at airports at least 40 times. She has had her computer and reporters notebooks confiscated and presumably copied, without a warrant. The most recent time, April 5, she took notes dur-ing her detention. The agents told her to stop, as they considered her pen a weapon. She told me: I feel like I cant talk about the work that I do in my home, in my place of work, on my telephone, and sometimes in my country. So the chilling effect is huge. Its enormous.Ž The hacker: Jacob Appelbaum works as a computer security researcher for the nonprofit organization the Tor Project (torproject.org), which is a free software package that allows people to browse the Internet anonymously, evading gov-ernment surveillance. Tor was actually created by the U.S. Navy, and is now developed and maintained by Appel-baum and his colleagues. Tor is used by dissidents around the world to commu-nicate over the Internet. Tor also serves as the main way that the controversial WikiLeaks website protects those who release documents to it. Appelbaum has volunteered for WikiLeaks, leading to intense U.S. government surveillance. Appelbaum spoke in place of Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, at a con-ference called Hackers on Planet Earth, or HOPE, as people feared Assange would be arrested. He started his talk by say-ing: Hello to all my friends and fans in domestic and international surveillance. Im here today because I believe that we can make a better world.Ž He has been detained at least a dozen times at airports: I was put into a special room, where they frisked me, put me up against the wall. ... Another one held my wrists. ... They implied that if I didnt make a deal with them, that Id be sexually assaulted in prison. ... They took my cellphones, they took my laptop. They wanted, essentially, to ask me questions about the Iraq War, the Afghan War, what I thought politi-cally.Ž I asked Binney if he felt that the NSA has copies of every email sent in the U.S. He replied, I believe they have most of them, yes.Ž Binney said two senators, Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, have expressed con-cern, but have not spoken out, as, Bin-ney says, they would lose their seats on the Senate Select Committee on Intel-ligence. Meanwhile, Congress is set to vote on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA. Propo-nents of Internet freedom are fighting the bill, which they say will legalize what the NSA is secretly doing already. Members of Congress, fond of quoting the countrys founders, should recall these words of Benjamin Franklin before voting on CISPA: They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little tempo-rary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier,Ž recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 A7 4755 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens (561) 799-05559186 Glades Road, Boca Lyons Plaza(561) 477-4774 Lic. #HS8984 The ultimate gated community Condo developer Larry Hall is already one-quarter sold out of the upscale dooms-day units he is building in an abandoned underground Cold War-era Atlas-F missile silo near Salina, Kan. He told an Agence France-Presse reporter in April that his 14-story structure would house seven floors of apartments ($1 million to $2 million each, cash up front), with the rest devoted to dry food storage, filtered-water tanks and an indoor farm, which would raise fish and vegetables to sustain residents for five years. The 9-foot-thick concrete walls (built to protect rockets from a Soviet nuclear attack) would be buttressed by entrance security to ward off the savages who were not wise enough to prepare against famine, meteors, nuclear war and the like. Mr. Hall said he expects to be sold out this year and begin work on another of the three silos he has options to buy. Q Can’t possibly be true Q Dan OLeary, the city manager of Keller, Texas (pop. 27,000), faced with severe bud-get problems, was unable to avoid the sad job of handing out pink slips. For instance, he determined that one of Kellers three city managers had to go, and in April, he laid himself off. According to a March Fort Worth Star-Telegram report, Mr. OLeary neither intended to retire nor had other offers pending, and he had aroused no nega-tive suspicions as to motive. He simply real-ized the city could be managed more cost-effectively by the two lower-paid officials. Q Herman Wallace, 70, and Albert Woodfox, 65, have been held in solitary confine-ment (only one hour a day outside) since 1972 in the Louisiana State Prison at Angola, after being convicted (via flimsy evidence and a convenient prison snitch) of killing a guard. A third convict in the murder, Robert King, who was in solitary for 29 years but then released, explained to BBC News in an April dispatch what its like to live inside 54 square feet for 23 hours a day, for over 14,000 straight days. The lawyer working to free Messrs. Wallace and Woodfox said the soul-deadened men were potted plants.Ž Q That sacred institution Q A federal court magistrate in Melbourne, Australia, decided to split a divorc-ing couples assets in half in February after listening to tedious details of their 20-year marriage. The coupleŽ lived apart except for vacations and kept their finances separate, constantly invoic(ing) each other,Ž accord-ing to the Daily Telegraph, for amounts as trifling as a $1.60 lightbulb. Q Though many Americans act as though they are in love with themselves, only Nadine Schweigert became an honest woman. She married herself in March in front of 45 family members and friends in Fargo, N.D., vowing to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self.Ž And then she was off on a solo honeymoon. Q Questionable judgments On Feb. 1, the New Jersey Honor Legion „ a civic association with more than 6,000 members in law enforcement „ nominated Frank DiMattina as Citizen of the MonthŽ for offering his catering hall in Woodbridge, N.J., numerous times for gatherings of police and firefighters. The nomination came three weeks after Mr. DiMattina (also known as Frankie DŽ) was convicted of shaking down a rival bidder for a school-lunch contract in New York City. Federal prosecutors told the New York Daily News that Mr. DiMattina is mobbed up „ an associate of the Genovese familys John Johnny SausageŽ Barbato. Q Unclear on the concept Q In January, Navey Skinner, 34, was charged with robbing the Chase Bank in Arlington, Wash., after passing a teller a note that read, Put the money in the bag now or (d)ie.Ž According to investigators, Ms. Skin-ner subsequently told them she had been thinking about robbing a bank and then, while inside the Chase Bank, accidentally robbedŽ it. Q Emanuel Kuvakos, 56, was arrested in April and charged with sending two Chicago sports team executives e-mails that threat-ened them with violence for having stolen his ideasŽ for winning championships.Ž One of the victims was a former general manager of the Chicago Cubs, a team that famously has not won a National League championship in 66 years, nor a World Series in 103. Q In April, Arizona (recently the home of cutting-edge legislation) almost set itself up for the impossible task of trying to prohibit any annoy(ing)Ž or offen(sive)Ž or pro-faneŽ language on the Internet. The state House passed the bill, which was endorsed 30-0 by the state Senate, ostensibly to make an anti-stalking telephone regulation appli-cable to digitalŽ communications. (Just as the bill was about to go to the governor for signature, sponsors suddenly realized the futility of the bills directives, and on April 4, withdrew it.) Q Fine points of the law Q Finally, a nationally prominent judge has taken on prison nutriloafŽ as a con-stitutional issue. In March, U.S. Appeals Court Judge Richard Posner reinstated a dismissed lawsuit by a Milwaukee County Jail inmate who claimed that the mystery meat gave him an anal fissure.Ž Judge Pos-ner wrote that the lower courts needed to rule on whether the food of indeterminate content is cruel and unusual punishment,Ž since (citing a Wikipedia entry) an anal fis-sure seems no fun at all.Ž Q The Missouri House of Representatives, after several times rejecting sexual orientationŽ as one of the legally prohib-ited categories of discrimination, man-aged to find another category in March (to join race,Ž religionŽ and so forth) that is deserving of special protection: licensed concealed-weapons carriers.

But some plants are poisonous, and even those animals who dont eat plants seem just as intent on otherwise destroying them by sleeping on them or digging them up. That means I have spent a great deal of time protecting plants from animals, and vice versa. This month, Im giving up a suburban home for a very small farm, with room (and more important, zoning) for my two boarded horses, my chickens and ducks, as well as three dogs and a cat. There will be approved plants for eating „ pasture! „ and plans for a massive veggie garden as well. Right now, its all raw dirt and brokendown fences. Both are going to change, and soon. Fortunately, Ive spent years balancing the needs and safety of animals and plants, so I know what to do. Fencing is a big part of the equation, but thats not all of it. And since most people just want their dog to leave the landscaping alone, here are the tips that can help make that happen for everyone, no matter how big your yard: Exercise your dog Dogs who dont get daily exercise are likely to expend that energy and cure their boredom by doing things people dont like „ digging, chewing and bark-ing. Dogs who are well-exercised are more likely to sleep while you are gone. When you leave, you should also offer your dog alternatives to choosing his own amusements: Provide him with a chew toy, such as a Kong „ stuffed with some-thing delicious, like peanut b utter.Work with your dog’s habits Observe how your dog uses your yard, and plan accordingly. For instance, many dogs consider it their duty to run the fence line, leaving a well-worn trail where many people hope to put flowers. Instead of fighting with your dog, go with his nat-ural instincts. Place your beds and plant-ings away from the fence line, and let him do his guard-dog patrolling behind those plants. Give the dog his own yardA side reliefŽ yard where messes and digging arent ever a problem can allow your dog to be a dog, especially when youre not around to supervise. Redirect digging You can keep many dogs from digging if you keep them exercised, limit their access to dirt, and make the digging experience unpleasant. Sometimes, putting the dogs own stools in the hole and covering them with dirt will deter him. Many dogs wont dig if their own mess is under the surface. Another option is giving your dog a dig zone. While hardly clean fun, it is good fun, especially for dogs who are happiest with their noses in the dirt and their paws flying.Put special plants in safer places Raised beds and hanging planters are the place to put your most precious plants. In borders, put the plants that can take being stepped on in front. Want a good dog-friendly plant? Mint is perfect. This plant is nearly indestructible and greets each assault with a wave of fresh mint smell.Fences are your friend While theres a lot you can do with yard layout and plant selection, if youre planning a dedicated veggie garden, pick a pretty fence to go around it. At my cur-rent home, a four-foot fence that wouldnt be enough to contain my large dogs safely on the property is plenty high enough to keep them out of the tomatoes. Itll be a long, long time before my new home has the gardens and plants I dream of. But with some basic guidelines in my head, there will be happier animals and fewer setbacks along the way. Q PET TALESMixing plants and petsGood planning and good fences can keep everyone safe and happy Many dogs like vegetables enough to eat them, and those who don’t still may like digging in the beds. Attractive fences may help solve both problems. Pets of the Week>>Chloe is a 2-year-old spayed terrier mix. She is happy and is always smiling from ear to ear.

That means counselors can be there for children when authorities need to remove them from an abusive home and place them in a shelter or foster care. We wanted to be sure there were enough dollars to train everybody involved in the system. Thats any-where from the police on the scene, the child protective investigators, other therapists involved to completely change their mindset,Ž said Laura Bessinger-Morse, development direc-tor for Community Partnership Group, the umbrella group for the non-profit Parent-Child Center and Housing Part-nership Inc. The grant, the first for this group of women who hail mostly from southern Palm Beach County, was intended to cover the area south of Lake Worth. But Parent-Child Center officials see it having a much larger impact. The transformative change they wanted to see happen with this $100,000 can absolutely happen and we will create a whole new system for the county, not only in the great target project area. Now our partners want to leverage against the funds the Impact women entrusted with us, and theyre going after their own annual funding so we can make it more countywide,Ž Ms. Morse said. Ms. Mulhall agreed.Im sure that they will be able to leverage this into something larger. I know theyll make it go much further with other additions to the project,Ž she said. The grant could not have been more timely. The day before Ms. Layman made her seven-minute pitch to Impact 100 in that American IdolŽ-style competi-tion, the Palm Beach County Childrens Services Council released a report say-ing there were more than 5,000 verified cases of abuse in the county over the past two years. Parent-Child Center serves more than 8,000 people in 10 different pro-grams that reach out to kids, Ms. Morse said. The organization is averaging 30 referrals a week, Ms. Layman said. The group also has a diversion team.Theyre a team that works with kids that are at risk of being removed, so that there are multiple calls to the hotline and they go into the home to prevent out-of-home placement,Ž Ms. Layman said. That preventive care seems to be working. More than 90 percent of the families that received help did not have repeat calls about abuse within six months of intervention. Ms. Layman and Ms. Morse credit their team of family advocates who have training in substance abuse, moti-vational interviewing and other skills. They go in and provide everything that the family needs, so if the electric-ity is turned off or about to turn off, they help them get that turned back on, whether its accessing funds or working with FPL to get that done,Ž Ms. Layman said. That assistance can include furniture, clothing, cribs and help with the rent, reducing the stressors that tear at many families. Just stabilizing a family top to bottom, including therapy to help them cope with those stresses,Ž said Ms. Morse. They also are trying to get trauma therapists to work with those family advocates, Ms. Layman said. But the counseling services are not just for lower income families. People from gated communities have come to rely on counseling services from the Parent-Child Center, thanks to the ongoing economic crisis. Money for the centers programs comes donations, grants and fees from various agencies for the mental health services the group has provided since its inception in 1979. Weve been very fortunate to get the job done with the partners that we have. But going forward, everyone has seen what is happening with local charities and philanthropic giving,Ž Ms. Morse said. Impact 100, whose grant was administered through the Community Foun-dation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, is the 15th such group formed in the United States. The southern Palm Beach County group is the third in Florida; others are in Vero Beach and Pensacola. Impact 100 really champions the power of women giving as one, and you really see it when you see a project like this coming to fruition,Ž Ms. Mul-hall said. Its the power of pulling it together and making a big impact.Ž She said she hopes Impact 100 can grow to give more money, citing the other Florida chapters, which award the $100,000 gifts to multiple benefi-ciaries. It is grants like that which serve as a catalyst for others to give. For us to sustain and be here for the long run, we are really asking the com-munity to recognize our experience, our work, our accreditation, know that we are worthy of their dollars and stand with us to stop this abuse that we see every day,Ž Ms. Morse said.

Dr. Hillinger is vice president of insti-tute development for MPFI and president of its nonprofit fund-raising arm, the Max Planck Florida Foun-dation. She established the institute from its inception in July 2008, growing it from a one-person venture into a 66-person, fully functional scientific research organization. This is the first time in its 60-year history that Germanys Max Planck Society has opened a facility in the United States. MPFIs primary focus is on cutting-edge research in the neurosciences and inte-grative biology that may hold the key to understanding human behaviors and provide new treatment methodologies for a host of neurological and psychiatric dis-orders, including Alzheimers, Parkinsons and schizophrenia. Dr. Hillinger has led and supervised the planning and pre-construction work for an innovative, 100,000-square-foot bio-medical research center and laboratories, which is located near Scripps Florida on six acres at Florida Atlantic Universitys MacArthur campus in Jupiter. Scientists will begin moving into the new building this summer and the formal grand opening is scheduled for December 2012. She was also responsible for setting up the instit utes t emporary facilities and the management of assembling the scientific research team, which includes Nobel Lau-reate Dr. Bert Sakmann and Duke Univer-sitys Dr. David Fitzpatrick. She formed the Foundation in Dec. 2010 as a 501c3, and established a board of direc-tors, steering committee and launched a capital campaign to help sustain the Insti-tute in the future. Dr. Hillinger is the point-person for external relations for the Society in Flor-ida, including management of the popular public lecture series, which concluded its second season in March; several educa-tional outreach programs and scientific collaborations with academic institutions around the state; and numerous presenta-tions about the Institute and the biosci-ence community around the state. A native of Munich, Dr. Hillinger received her doctorate in biology from the Institute of Botany and Microbiology at Technical University of Munich, where she later became research group leader. She served as assistant to both the American Deputy Director and the Ger-man Program Director at the American Embassy in Bonn, Germany and Ameri-ka Haus Mnchen. She joined the Max Planck Society nearly 15 years ago and helped establish the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena. Past recipients of the award of excellence include Dr. Hans Graber of the Uni-versity of Miami; former German Consul General Klaus Ranner; Kirsten Kuhnert of Dolphin Aid; Madhu Mehta of India Silk; Walter Loy; and German Consul General Eva Alexandra Countess Kendeffy, who was also part of the original group of busi-ness leaders who traveled with Governor Jeb Bush to Munich to invite the Max Planck Society to open an Institute in South Florida. Q Dr. Claudia Hillinger to receive German American awardSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY St. Marks Episcopal Church will host a laby-rinth walk open to the community on May 5, at 1 p.m. in its Youth Center/Gymnasium in support of World Labyrinth Day. Each year on the first Saturday in May, The Labyrinth Society spon-sors and invites people from around to Walk as One at 1Ž in an attempt to cre-ate a wave of peaceful energy moving around the planet.Ž There is no charge to participate in the walk; however, donations are graciously accepted. Jane Decker, St. Marks Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator, will be available to offer guidance and answer questions. Appropriate for all ages, labyrinths have long been used as a spiritual tool for meditation and prayer. There is no special training required to walk the labyrinth. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth provides only one path (the way in is the way out) that winds the walker to the center, a place for reflection or recollection. Each persons walk is an individual experience that becomes more profound with practice. A labyrinth for use by parishioners and community members will be available in St. Marks new Peace Chapel, which is currently under construction along with its new administration building. Our chapels floor is in the design of an ancient labyrinth, an enclosed, circular path that draws people into a contemplative journey where they can relax,Ž said the Rev. Jim Cook, rector at the Palm Beach Gardens church. In todays fast-paced and materialistic society, people are looking for ways to reduce stress and deepen their spiritual peace.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA scientist from the Jupiter cam-pus of The Scripps Research Institute has been awarded $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop new computer-driv-en design methods to find new therapeu-tics targeting RNA. Matthew Disney, an associate pro-fessor at Scripps Research, is the prin-cipal investigator for the four-year study. RNA was once considered a passive messenger, used only to carry copies of the DNA needed to pro-duce or translate proteins. All that changed when it was found that RNA could produce chemical reactions that, for example, cause proteins to fold into various forms. RNA is an increasingly important potential target for the design of small-molecule therapeutics, although methods to design small molecule drugs that bind to RNA and affect its function are still in their infancy. The rational design of small molecules that exploit therapeutic targets from genomic sequence was one of the promises of the Human Genome Project, but people had no idea of how to do it,Ž Mr. Disney said. As a result, most targets „ especially RNA targets „ represent untapped potential.Ž A computer program created by Mr. Disney merges information on the interaction between small mol-ecules (potential drugs) and RNA folds present in segments of the human genome that contribute to specific diseases. Mr. Disney said his approach differs from conventional top-downŽ methods that nor-mally screen an RNA target against a broad chemical library. Our bottom-up approach uses information about the small RNA motifs such as internal loops or hair-pins that a small molecule ligand prefers to bind,Ž he said. Using this method, Mr. Disney recently successfully designed several small molecules that are strongly active against myotonic dystrophy type 1, the most common form of muscular dystrophy. All of the tools in the new study will be available on the Internet, so they can be shared by the RNA community. The Scripps Research Institute is one of the worlds largest independent, not-for-profit organizations focusing on research in the biomedical sciences. Over the past decades, Scripps Research has developed a lengthy track record of major contributions to science and health, including laying the foundation for new treatments for cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, hemo-philia and other diseases. The institute employs about 3,000 people on its campuses in La Jolla, Calif., and Jupiter, where its renowned scientists „ including three Nobel laure-ates „ work toward their next discoveries. The insti-tutes gra duate program, which awards Ph.D. degrees in biology and chemistry, ranks among the top 10 of its kind in the nation. For more information, see Scripps.edu. Q It was the last straw. The Millers had invited Gregs ex-wife Susan to their annual barbecue with the kids, and hadnt even taken the time to explain to Greg why hed been overlooked. It really hurt, especially because he had spent hours last summer helping the Millers set up their outdoor furniture and for the last three years had coached their youngest son in soccer. Greg had elected not to tell their friends (and some family members) the details of the breakup and how much Susans indiscretions had hurt him. But by taking the high road, and keeping the details private, he was well aware there were those who assumed HE had been the one who wanted the separation, when in fact, it was Susan who had surprised him with legal papers. Greg understood that it would only be natural for their friends to be supportive of Susan. And, he certainly wanted to know that things were OK for her and their children. But it floored him that some close friends found it necessary to take sides. Everyone seemed to rally around Susan and just didnt seem to realize how much Greg had been hurting. He would never get over the humiliation of walking to the back of the crowded auditorium, when seats had been saved for his family but no one had thought of him. He missed waking up to his children and the family routines he had cherished. He missed the familiarity of the home hed shared with Susan the last 15 years. He didnt think hed ever get used to his condo, or coming home to an empty house. He counted the minutes to the alternate weekends when his kids came. And, ironically, he also counted the minutes until they went home, because they always seemed to negatively compare his home to their mothers. He wondered if he would ever be able to feel normal and move on from the pain.As we all know, there are rarely any winners when it comes to divorce. Each family member is impacted dra-matically. And, of course, the extend-ed family and friends are put in the unenviable position of trying to be supportive, as they grapple with their own feelings about the breakup. Its not uncommon to focus our attention on the challenges women face as they start over and tend to the emotional needs of their children. And of course, we know this support will be invaluable. Many newly divorced women have been devastated emotionally and financially, and will surely appreciate sensitivity and compassion from those around them. Its important, though, to remember that many of todays divorces are initiated by women. Even if both parties have seen it coming for some time, and the announcement comes as no surprise, many husbands may still feel as if theyve been blindsided. Their pride, self-esteems and bank accounts may have been seriously depleted, and theyre hurting badly. So, lets not be too quick to assume theyre heartless cads whose selfishness and immaturity are solely to blame. And, while were on the subject, if we seek to enter the blame game, we may take on a polarized, critical stance, and participate in an ugly spiral that escalates a tense situation even further. After a divorce, egos may be bruised and the parties may be hyper-sensitive to the judgments of those around them. The divorced family may assume theyve been the subject of prurient gossip on the soccer field or at dinner parties, and may worry that every aspect of their lives has been scrutinized. Men starting over may be very frightened by the enormous responsibility of maintaining two house-holds at a time when theyre feeling inadequate and insecure. Knowing that we all need to grieve a major loss in a very personal way should remind us to assume that newly divorced men are hurting also and could benefit from our warmth and camaraderie. They may not have a solid support system readily in place. The newly divorced man has usually lost the structure and comfort of his home and daily routines, and may have been accustomed to his ex-wife handling responsibilities that are now on his very full plate. He may miss the special moments of spontaneously snuggling with his children or being privy to their daily confidences. The limited visits with his children may feel forced or awkward, and over time, the com-fort and closeness they once felt may have become strained. Hopefully, as the children mature and gain insight, a closer bond can be re-established. There may be an assumption hes living the life of ReillyŽ with his newly freed-up schedule „ and that its no trouble at all to segue quickly to an active, satisfying social life. Dont we all say: Its so much easier for a man. Everyone has a number to give him.Ž Obviously, this is not always the case. But even if the newly separated man has opportunities, it does not mean he isnt dealing with loneliness, or that his self-esteem hasnt taken a huge hit. Most women have developed a support network and are more comfortable reaching out for what they need. Men were more often socialized to keep sad feelings to themselves; they dont want to be perceived as wimps or whiners. So, they present a stiff upper lip and suffer silently. Assume they may be struggling more than they let on. No doubt, hed be so appreciative if you took the time to call him or invite him over (with or without the children) for a casual catch-up. Dont press him to talk if hes reticent. His pride may have suffered a great deal. Hell open up if, and when, he feels safe to share. As he faces the challenges of the next chapter, there will obvi-ously be some tense moments and pitfalls, but if he is receptive, there are possibilities for tremendous growth and personal satisfaction.

When it comes to stroke, recog-nizing its immediate signs and getting to a hospital with the capabilities to diag-nose and intervene early for treatment is of utmost importance. St. Marys Medical Center and Tenet hospitals across South Florida are encouraging the community to be stroke smartŽ this month. Being stroke smart first means to recognize the stroke warning signs and act FAST: € Facial weakness „ can the person smile? Has his mouth or eye drooped? € Arm weakness „ can the person raise both arms?€ Speech problems „ can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?€ Time to call 9 -1-1. If any of these warning signs are recognized, immediately call 9 -1-1 or get to the nearest emergency room. Also, check the time so you can tell emer-gency medical providers when the first symptoms appeared. With stroke, you dont have seconds to lose; immediate evaluation and treatment can mean the best chance for treatment and positive outcomes. For example, if given within three hours of the start of symptoms, a clot-busting drug called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) may reduce long-term disability for the most common type of stroke. tPA is the only FDA-approved medication for the treatment of stroke within three hours of stroke symptom onset. As a state designated Comprehensive Stroke Center, St. Marys Medical Center is now offering an advanced treatment for stroke, a blood clot remov-ing procedure utilizing the Solitaire FR device. The device is intended to restore blood flow to the brain in patients suf-fering acute ischemic stroke by mechani-cally removing blood clots from blocked vessels. In clinical studies, this catheter-based procedure has been shown to better restore blood flow to the brain after a stroke compared with other similar devices. The Neuroscience Center at St. Marys Medical Center and its team of neurologists, interventionalists and neu-rosurgeons are committed to delivering the best possible stroke and neurology care possible. While St. Marys Medical Center has saved many lives due to its talented neu-rology teams and access to some of the most advanced diagnostic and interven-tional technology available to date, one of the most important factors in positive stroke outcomes is recognizing stroke warning signs and getting to treatment as quickly as possible. Be stroke smartŽ this May.Remember to act FAST if you or a loved one experience any of the stroke warning signs, and get to a medical team that can provide the highest level of stroke care, such as a Comprehensive Stroke Center like St. Marys, as quickly as possible. For more information about stroke treatment and neurology services at St. Marys Medical Center, see stmarysmc.com or call 844-6300. Q St. Mary’s offers highest level of care in cases of stroke Every 68 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimers dis-ease. Thats just one of the statistics in the 2012 Alzheimers Disease Facts and Figures report recently released by the Alzheimers Association. An estimated 5.4 million people have Alzheimers today, including 200,000 people under the age of 65. By 2025, there will be as many as 6.7 million people with Alzheimers. More than 450,000 Floridians are afflicted today. Here are some more findings:Q One out of seven people with Alzheimers lives alone. There are an estimated 800,000 people in the Unit-ed States who have Alzheimers and live alone. People with dementia who live alone are at greater risk of jeopar-dized health than those who live with others. These risks include missed or delayed diagnosis, self-neglect, mal-nutrition and untreated medical con-ditions. Those living alone are also at increased risk of wandering away unattended and of accidental death. Compounding these issues is the fact that many are in denial about the seri-ousness of cognitive impairment and refusal to seek help. Advance planning for the individual with Alzheimers or another dementia who lives alone is absolutely critical,Ž says Gloria Smith, president and CEO of the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Alzheimers Association. Alzheimers and other dementias take individuals through unfamiliar territory,Ž she adds. Planning in the early stages of the dis-ease allows individuals to build a care team, make financial plans and prepare for future safety concerns, while they are still cognitively able to do so.Ž Q Florida is among the top four states in which caregivers are unpaid. There are 15.2 million friends and family mem-bers providing care for individuals with Alzheimers and other dementias, including 999,000 caregivers in Florida (along with California, New York and Texas, Florida tops the chart in the num-ber of unpaid caregivers looking after loved ones with Alzheimers and other dementias). In 2011, caregivers provided $210 billion of unpaid care nationally „ $13.7 billion of it in Florida. Caregivers take on a tremendous financial, physical and emotional toll to help care for a loved one with Alzheim-ers. Sixty-one percent of family care-givers of people with Alzheimers and other dementias rated their emotional stress of care giving as high or very high. That physical and emotional impact is estimated to result in nearly $9 billion in increased health-care costs in the United States, including $594,293,482 for caregivers in Florida. Q People with Alzheimers and other dementias cost Medicaid 19 times more than seniors without the conditions. Individuals with Alzheimers or other dementias are high consumers of hos-pital, nursing home and long-term care services, translating into high costs for Medicare, Medicaid and families.

China is important. Understanding (or at least attempting to understand) the ways of the Chinese when it comes to business should be a big priority for any U.S. investor. China is expected to surpass the U.S. as the worlds dominant economic power 20 years from now. But understanding China is sometimes very difficult „ so difficult, in fact, that accepting that you dont understand them at times, accepting the inscrutable ways of the Chinese, is equally as important. The old sayings, Know what you dont knowŽ and, It aint what they say; its what they dont say,Ž both apply here. Their economic communications are an interplay of their language, culture and their strategies. Chinese verbal communication is vastly different from our own Western speech, not just in the letters and sounds we make, but in meaning and clarity. Our English language is open and specific; largely, it invites a response and suggests dialogue. However, from China comes the expression reading the tea leaves.Ž And we all know that reading swirls in a teacup is more complicated than alphabet soup „ and try reading that! So being inscrutable is not a selective fashioning of communication by the Chi-nese for the non-Chinese world; rather, it is a reflection of their own several thousand-year culture and their domestic dialogue. Sometimes, determining just what the other party wants in a negotiation or what is the economic reality in a conversation can be difficult. In Mandarin, there is no statement of plural, such as, I have cows.Ž Rather, Mandarin allows a response of, I have cow,Ž which leaves the listener clue-less as to how many cows. If the speaker wishes to disclose how many cows he or she has, then a number is given, such as, I have 100 cows.Ž So, even among them-selves, their language directs the listener to an inner courtyard or outer courtyard. For many Americans, this is a contrived and posturing form of speech that can prove frustrating for the uninitiated. For the Chinese, this is their normal commu-nication interplay. Agendas also influence communications. The U.S. business world is run with a capitalist mentality, where we compete, take risks and fight to win. However, our governments fiscal and monetary policies are increasingly run under non-capitalistŽ thinking. Within and outside our borders, the U.S. pursues policies without figuring out how we will win or having it as a goal. For example, the U.S. Federal Reserve is deeply embroiled in helping other countries out of their sovereign debt morass and contrary to a pure capitalist agenda, giving help without extracting a pound of flesh. From my per-spective, China approaches the sovereign debt problem with a capitalist viewpoint and game plan: You need my help. I will give it and what do I get in return?Ž China, on the other hand, is playing to win and intends to become the dominant world power. These are not new concepts for the brain of U.S. citizens to process but I think we reject them when coming out of China. So, China has a culture/language that is clearly different from ours and it has a game plan that we as U.S. citizens and businesses (not government) want for ourselves, but not for anyone else. Here are some examples of the interplay of communication and agenda: Sometimes, China makes major statements that it chooses to have released around the world, and even better if cov-ered on the front pages of the worlds lead-ing newspapers „ such as China tighten-ing or loosening monetary policy. Other times, it just goes about doing exactly as it plans without fanfare but not hiding the facts of its actions. For instance, China attends BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) summits. Everyone knows that a key element of those summits is discuss-ing an alternative to the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. Sometimes the Chinese purposely do not disclose items of import, even though such disclosure would be the ordinary and expected conduct of a major GDP nation. For instance, it is assumed to be proper and good conduct by the worlds top users of natural and agricultural resources to make disclosure about their need for criti-cal resources and their stockpile of such resources. But China does not disclose this to the world, at least with any regularity. Sometimes the wait is several years for inventory updates on its central banks precious metals holdings. Sometimes it draws a lot of attention to a small issue and fully flexes its muscles so that the world makes great note of it. For instance, there was recently an issue in the South China Seas as Chinese fisher-men were being robbed and accosted by Filipinos. So China sent its military fleet to the region. Maybe it was needed; maybe it was a time to show that it will defend itself and that it now has the beginnings of naval might. Investment suggestion? China aint switchin from tea leaves to tea bags any time soon. For those of you who are avid readers of mainstream newspapers, maybe you might want to add a dosage of some Chinese Internet news. (I am not suggesting reading Mandarin characters.) Sure, take their news with a shaker of salt, read between the lines and definitely try to picture their world.

In 2011, the Better Business Bureau serving west Florida received more than 6,000 complaints against general contractors „ up 11 percent from the previous year. While there are many trustworthy and reliable contractors out there, there are always an unscrupu-lous few who charge too much and do too little, or nothing at all. You want a home contractor you can trust, so watch out for red flags from those just looking to make a quick buck,Ž says Karen Nalven, president of BBB serving west Florida. Be careful of doing business with a contractor who solicits business door-to-door. This could mean that the contractor is not from a local, established business and is instead just passing through and trying to take advantage of innocent consumers.Ž The Better Business Bureau recommends following this checklist before choosing a home contractor. Q Be picky and have lots of options. Seek at least thr ee bids fr om prospective contractors, based on equal specifications, materials and labor needed to complete the project. Homeowners should discuss bids in detail with each contractor and ask questions about variations in pricing. The lowest-priced con-tractor may not be the best. Q Make sure they are certified and insured. Consumer s should ask w hether the company is insured against claims covering workers compensation, prop-erty damage and personal liability in case of accidents. Consumers should obtain the name of the insurance carrier and call to verify coverage. Ask whether the contractor meets licensing and bonding requirements set by the state, county or city. Check with local authorities to find out whether permits are needed before proceeding with the work. The contractor also should be aware of any required permits. Q Get everything in writing. Ask whether the contr act or will provide a lien waiver upon completion of the job. A lien waiver is a statement by the contractor that all suppliers and subcontractors have been paid for their work. Read and understand the contract before signing. Get all verbal promises in writing. Include start and completion dates in the contract. Q Remember the rule of thirds and follow it. Pay one thir d at the start of the pr oject, one third when work is 50 percent complete and one third after completion.

Swimming dog, decisive executive all in a day’s work for real estate broker heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF A day in the life of a real estate broker is never typical and always excit-ing. Recently my workday began with a famous NFL football player and his wife. They were in town for a short time and were looking for their third residence. We were viewing $5 million to $7 million properties in secure com-munities. They pulled up in their black Range Rover, with Junior in the front seat. Junior is their Golden Retriever. He is with them at all times. Personally, I love animals and especially dogs, but Ive never seen two adults in the scenario I am about to describe. We arrived at the first home and out jumps Junior. He ran across the beauti-fully maintained yard, hopped over the hedges, ran in between the recently planted New Guinea impatients (crush-ing them) and back to the car. On to the next houseŽ says the football player. I looked at him and asked why. We have to at least walk in and view the interior of the home. You may not like the looks of the exterior, but it has everything you asked for inside.Ž I say. Thats OK,Ž says the football player. Cant you see Junior is not happy? He didnt even want to go to the front door. If Junior doesnt like the home, then we dont want to buy it.Ž OK. I wasnt aware until that moment that I was actually selling the Golden Retriever a house, NOT the famous football player and his wife. We viewed two other homes. Each home Junior had to walk through the house, sniff the furnishings and run through the yard. As we were finishing our tour of the second home in this luxurious gated community, he decided to jump in the pool and take a lap. Oh look how cute, he loves it! This home is at the top of our listŽ says the wife. But I think the pool is too small for Junior. I would like to add another 10 or 15 feet so he can do his laps. Will that be a problem?Ž After viewing several other properties, the couple went back to the second home and is expanding the pool for Junior. I am now in the process of inter-viewing contractors for the couple ƒ Or should I say Junior! My next appointment of that day was with John White. John is 38, happily married and is excited about his baby due in May. He and his wife, Kim, are from Toronto and visited Old Palm the previous year. They had put in an offer on a home last year and were outbid by another buyer. Like many buyers at the time, they were surprised that there were multiple buyers for one prop-erty in the current market. As always, if there is a great home at a reasonable price, this is not uncommon. John manages major hedge funds and travels all over the world. Over the past year he has contemplated purchasing a second home in California, Arizona and Florida. He is extremely sharp and to the point, knows what he likes and wants his broker to understand his cri-teria so there is no time wasted. As I walked into the sales center to meet him, he was waiting in the con-ference room. laptop, iPad and phone all on the table, multi-tasking and still working. His driver had just dropped him off from the Miami airport. He was by himself since his wife is too far along in her pregnancy to travel. The Whites price point is up to $2 million. The first home I brought him to was built in 2005, but already completely remodeled. As we walked in, there was opera music playing loudly in the background. The kitchen, with gorgeous white cabinets, is the focal point of the home. He is clearly con-fused, however, at the purple lights flashing in the top row of the cabinets, changing colors from purple to blue to green. John looks at me and rolls his eyes, and started laughing. The agent, very professionally, says, The home was redesigned California style.Ž We then walked outside. Views of the 4th fairway are possibly the best views in the community. Next I take him to a brand new model home. Just completed three weeks ear-lier and priced at $1,775,000. It does not have a golf-course view but has magnifi-cent waterfalls in the backyard. As you enter the home you see directly through the home to the backyard pool, spa and water features. He is still working. Texts coming back and forth, but he looks up for just enough time to say beautiful.Ž I can tell from his demeanor this is the house. It is very serene, but also clean and modern. After finally putting his phone away and inspecting every feature of the home closely, he tells me that he does not want to miss another opportunity and is ready to purchase. He picks up the phone and calls his wife, sends her photos and gets her blessing. Now under contract, John is looking forward to closing in June, practicing his golf game and enjoying the Old Palm lifestyle with his wife and baby.

They are probably not propped against a door to keep it open but are instead displayed like rare porcelain figurines on a prominent shelf. The clever, colorful and often humor-ous doorstops favored today are made of painted cast iron. They were first popular in the late 19th century. Flower baskets, cottages, animals and people were the most common doorstop shapes. More than 1,000 American-made doorstops are known, and there are at least 35 different doorstops that look like Boston Terriers. A new doorstop in 1920 cost 25 cents. Today a rare doorstop sells for more than $10,000. But most doorstops in average condition cost about $100. Original paint is important and repainting a doorstop, no matter how battered, lowers the price. A broken or badly damaged piece has almost no value. Many reproductions of old doorstops have been made, most of them since the 1980s. Thats when new collectors started searching for pieces for their collections. Reproductions start out with overly bright paint, and any rust that develops on them is bright orange, not dark brown. One unusual vintage cast-iron doorstop is a clownish boy wearing a checkered shirt. He is standing with his legs and arms crossed. At his feet are piles of books and pamphlets. It may have been made to commemorate the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. Since the Times didnt publish its first crossword puzzle until 1942, the doorstop wasnt made before then. One sold in 2008 for $4,025. In 2011 another one sold for $1,725. Q: My old childs rocking chair has a music box attached to one of the rockers. A short rod extends from the music box to the floor so that when the chair rocks, the music box plays. Unfor-tunately, the music box no longer works. What can you tell me about the chair? Do you know any-one who repairs some-thing like this? A: In the mid-20th century, a few compa-nies made childrens rocking chairs with music boxes. The mechanism on your chair was a feature of little rockers made by the N.D. Cass Co. of Athol, Mass. See if you can find a Cass Toys label or mark on the chair. Anyone who repairs music boxes should be able to repair the box on your chair. We list a few in the free directory on our website, Kovels.com. Q: Please tell me what my World War II poster is worth. My father got the poster from his bank in 1942, which is why I know its an original. Its 39 by 60 inches and pictures a close-up of a pilot. The wording on it is: You Buy Em, Well Fly Em, Defense Bonds, Stamps.Ž The poster is in excellent condition and I have kept it framed under glass. A: World War II patriotic posters interest many collectors. Your poster, featuring art by Norman Wilkinson, was made in at least three sizes. Yours is the largest. We have seen a small one sell for $100, so yours would sell for more. Q: I have owned an old heating stove for years. The name on it is Warm Morn-ing.Ž Can you give me any history? A: Warm MorningŽ was a trade name for heaters made by the Locke Stove Co. of Kansas City, Mo. The heaters were first sold in the early 1930s and remained popular through the 40s. They were made to burn differ-ent fuels „ wood, coal, gas or oil. Q: More than 50 years ago, my husband and I bought a silver-plated melon-shaped serving piece with a removable silver insert and a second pierced silver insert below it. The dish is 15 inches high by 8 inches in diameter. The top rolls back and is decorated with an ornate coat of arms. The bottom is marked Mappin & Webb, 7577 & 78 Oxford Street, Building City, London.Ž Can you tell me the history of this piece and its value? A: You have what probably was marketed as a bun warmerŽ or breakfast warmerŽ designed to keep rolls or other food warm on the table or buffet. Map-pin & Webb is still in business. Its one of Englands oldest jewelry retailers and is known for its high-quality silver. The firm dates back to 1774, when Jonathan Mappin founded his own silversmith workshop in Sheffield, England. George Webb joined the Mappin family in the business in 1858 and the companys name was changed to Mappin & Webb. A Mappin & Webb silver-plated warmer like yours sold at auction last summer for $85.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES Doorstops become show-stopping antiques Idd s a a t C p 1 terry KOVELnews@floridaweekly.com Statewide survey salutes Florida’s best buildings SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY To commemorate its 100th anniversary, the American Institute of Architects-Florida Chapter conducted a month-long survey of the Top 100 building in the state. Out of 2.4 million votes cast online, the Fountainebleau Miami Beach earned top honors overall. The Walker Guest House on Sanibel Island placed first in its category, residential, and was the only Southwest Florida building to make the list. Some of the other category winners were the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg and Boca Raton Town Hall for civic buildings and the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville for performing arts buildings. Rounding out the list of overall winners were: Mandis Chapel in Live Oak; the Baughman Center at the University of Florida-Gainesville; the University of North Florida Student Union in Jack-sonville; and the Mar-a-Lago National Historic Landmark in Palm Beach. The buildings in the competition were nominated by AIAFloridas local chapters, which made submissions to a panel of architects who then narrowed the list to the top 100 buildings. Behind every magnificent structure is an architect who helped create it,Ž says Peter Jones, president of AIA-Florida. Through their votes, Florid-ians have told us they get it „ that they appreciate the beauty and importance of Floridas most unforgettable build-ings.Ž Fontainebleau Miami Beach has been an American architectural icon since it opened in 1954. The most signifi-cant building of architect Morris Lapi-dus career, its emblematic curvilin-ear design came to define the Miami Beach skyline. Marked by Mr. Lapidus signature details „ including bow-tie design motifs, circular ceilings and col-umns and the infamous Staircase to NowhereŽ „ Fontainebleau was the first of its kind. In 2008, Jeffrey Soffer and the Soffer family reopened the Fontainebleau Miami Beach after a $1 billion renova-tion which sought to uncover Mr. Lapi-dus original vision and mark the rebirth of an enduring architectural landmark in Miami Beach, according to Phil Gold-farb, president and COO of Fontaineb-leau Miami Beach. He called the AIAs top award a testament to the magnificent restoration work and the international team of architects assembled to accomplish that task. We are elated that so many Floridians took the time to learn about the beautiful structures in their communi-ties,Ž said Donald Yoshino, chairman of AIA-Floridas 100th Anniversary Com-mittee. We intend to keep the con-versation front and center as we cele-brate 100 years and encourage students across the state to consider a career in architecture „ placing their own unique signature on our states skyline.Ž Based in Tallahassee, AIA-Florida represents the interests of 3,600-plus members in Florida and the Caribbean who adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct that assures the client, the public and colleagues of an AIA-member architects dedication to the highest standards in professional practice.

FREE ADMISSION! Call me Imelda. Nothing gets me going like a pair of shoes. I love the materials, the patent leather and Thai silk and faux python; I love the colors, the taupe and cerulean and magenta; and I love the styles, the peep toes and gladiators and t-straps. I love boots, san-dals and espadrilles. But theres one style of shoe I cant handle: high heels. How can a shoe lover not like heels? The truth „ theyre insufferable. They cramp my feet. Crimp my toes. Rub blisters on the back of my ankles. When I stand in a pair of heels, I feel 7 feet tall. Im already long-limbed and knob-kneed, and when you put me in a pair of stilettos I look like a praying mantis. I dont know how other women do it. On a recent trip to Japan, my travel companions and I remarked on the perfectly manicured Japanese women. They were impeccably coiffed and styled with flawless makeup and out-fits. Their shoes were always top-notch, and they often wore heels. Not tiny kitten heels. Not wedges with a little lift. Full-on, toe-cramping, arch-hurt-ing, ankle-blistering heels. One of my friends asked a young Japanese woman how she managed it. The woman smiled demurely. You American women,Ž she said, are just lazy.Ž I had this comment in my mind on a recent Saturday morning as I dressed for brunch. I eyeballed a pair of high-heeled sandals Id bought the week before. As much as I hate to admit it, Id like to be the kind of woman whos confident in heels. So I stepped out of the ballet flats I had planned to wear and into the pair of new shoes. I was 3 inches taller. I wobbled on my feet. In the mirror I looked the same, only shakier. But a funny thing happened on the way to brunch. The first man I passed gave me a long look and smiled. I smiled back. Surely, I thought, he was just being friendly. And that whistle from across the street? No way that was for me. A construction crew was working on a strip of road I had to cross, and the flag-holder said hello as I passed. Looking good, baby,Ž he said. Love those shoes.Ž I looked down at my feet, at the high heels that were already rais-ing red welts on my ankles, and I had to laugh. Could heels really make that much of a difference? A block up, I had to stop to put a Band-Aid on my right foot. When I was bandaged and on my way, I passed two older men leaning against the bum-per of a car. They stopped talking as I walked in front of them. You are a beautiful woman,Ž one said. A spectacular human being.Ž I had to laugh. No one had ever called me beautiful in flats. As I made my way up the street, I remembered a piece of advice from Steve Har-veys Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.Ž In the back of the book, he answers questions from women readers. Do men prefer flats or heels?Ž one woman asks. Mr. Harveys answer? Heels, baby. Heels.Ž Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSTurns out, the shoe fits artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Hes been a professional critic for 30 years, with previous gigs at the Boston Phoenix, the Village Voice, the New York Post and Slate. Im very, very lucky to have the job that I have. Dont think I dont know that,Ž he says on the phone from his home in Brooklyn, N.Y. Hes just come from a screening of Safe.Ž An action adventure film slated to hit theaters April 27, it stars Jason Statham, whom Mr. Edelstein calls a really intelligent action actor. I think of all the action stars, hes the one whos the most interesting,Ž he says. He moves really beautifully. His face holds the camera. And hes very witty in his restraint.Ž Mr. Edelstein attended the 14th annual Sarasota Film Festival earlier this month, interviewing Broadway and screen actor Frank Langella as part of the festivals SFF ConversationsŽ series. Mr. Langellas movie, Robot and Frank,Ž set for theatrical release later this year, was the festivals open-ing film. In it, Mr. Langella plays an aging ex-jewel thief whose son gives him a caretaker robot. Mr. Edelstein enjoyed Robot and FrankŽ and says it had a very good bal-ance of humor and melancholy, which I like. The surface is funny, but the sad-ness bubbles up below.Ž He also attended SFF last year and says it has a different feel than other film festivals. Sundance and Cannes are just crawling with movie executives trying to make deals,Ž he says. Id rather watch movies with really interested people who are being a little daring and taking a chance on something that hasnt been certified by critics or word of mouth.Ž Last year, Mr. Edelstein interviewed actor Christopher Plummer (whose movie BeginnersŽ was screened at the festival) in front of an SFF audience. Interviewing someone on-stage is different than doing so privately for an article, he says. You do have to worry about entertaining (an audience). When I do interviews one-on-one, I often ask stupid questionsƒ Ill go down a blind alley; I dont worry, as long as I have time. But you cant go down too many blind alleys when youre doing some-thing live.ŽThe interviewer on interviewingHe tends to over-prepare for interviews, he says, comparing his method to cramming for oral exams in college. Christopher Plummer made something like 70 films; I saw 50 of them. I read his biography. I read many inter-views with him, listened to many inter-views.Ž And he did the same thing this year before interviewing Mr. Langella. I was totally cramming, in one of the dressing roomsƒ Langella walks inƒ and I said to him, I cant talk to you now, I have to get ready to talk to you.Ž The best interviews are conversations where the interviewer listens intently and isnt wed to a list of pre-planned questions, he says. A good interviewer asks follow-up questions. One reason Terry Gross (host of Fresh Air) is one of the best inter-viewersƒ is that she listens so closely,Ž he says. She finds inconsistencies, she finds little pockets of mystery she wants to go in and open up.Ž About the interview with Mr. Langella he says this: Hes a hard nut to crack in some ways. Hes such a brilliant and thoughtful man, very deliberate in the way he speaks. Hes very cerebral, hes thought through this acting thing and can talk about it brilliantly. It was a very intense two hours. I was exhausted when I got off stage. I was sweating. I was listening to him very, very closely.Ž As for last years interview with Mr. Plummer, he says, Plummer had a really good time. We just had a romp.Ž When the interview was over, he adds, Mr. Plummer said to him, Lets do this again.Ž Mr. Edelstein considers his interviews in Sarasota two of the best afternoons of my life, professionally.Ž He adds to that list an interview he did with Robert Duvall at the Virginia Film Festival one year. When I have a chance to meet my heroes and talk to them, and try to trace the connection between the work and the life, thats a great thrill for me.Ž‘Escaping into reality’ Mr. Edelstein grew up in Connecticut in what he describes as an upper-mid-dle-class Jewish suburb full of Repub-licans.Ž Though it was the 60s, none of the turmoil of the Vietnam War or the battle for civil rights touched them, he says. So I went to the movies to see what was happening in the world „ unlike today, where you go to the mov-ies to escape.Ž He watched films such as Nashville,  M*A*S*H,Ž The French Connection,Ž Taxi DriverŽ and Bonnie and Clyde.Ž These movies, he says, seemed to me much more real than the plastic suburban world around me. It was like escaping into reality. Theyre not real-istic, by any means, but they showed me a world. They gave me a world of sensations and ideas that I wasnt get-ting at home. We all go to art to get what were not getting at home. (Movies) help us make imaginative leapsƒ without which we would be coarser, less reflec-tive, altogether less interesting people. I feel that way about theater, and I feel the same way about books.Ž When 17or 18-year-olds tell Mr. Edelstein they want to be critics, he urges them to go to college and learn about everything in the world. If you want to be a critic, or any kind of writer, there is nothing you cant learn about any subject, no matter how eso-teric, that isnt going to contribute to how good a writer youre going to be. I cant imagine someone writing about movies whos never read Middlemarch or Pride and Prejudice or War and Peace, or (never) studied Lear or Hamlet.Ž Hes always amazed when people tell him theyre writing screenplays, yet have never read one, he says. In order to write one, you should be constantly reading screenplays to understand the language, what works on the page, what doesnt work. You cant just be watching movies. It helps to understand the form in which youre writing.Ž The same goes for movie critics who havent read James Agee, Kenneth Tynan, Pauline Kael, Andrew Sarris or Manny Farber, he says. I say, Read, read, read, as much as you can. Read. If you want to write, READ.ŽHow he approaches reviewingTypically, Mr. Edelstein wont write his review immediately after viewing a film. He likes to think about what hes seen. And once he begins, he some-times works six or seven hours just on his opening paragraphs. Its really important to get the first few sentences right,Ž he says. And once he starts to write, he adds, he stays true to his original response. I have to be true to myself if Im going to be a critic.Ž He doesnt read anything about the movie ahead of time; sometimes he doesnt even know the premise of the film before he sits down to watch it. I hate to go in oriented,Ž he says. I like it when I dont know where the filmmaker is taking me. I go in as blind as humanly possible. I dont care if its a film starring Sylvester Stallone or anybody, I am going into that movie thinking, This is going to be the best Sylvester Stallone movie ever made. Or, This is the movie where Rob Schneider is really going to prove himself. And I think thats a great way to go into a movie: wide open. It doesnt mean you take out part of your brain, obviously. You try to be neutral. Just put aside your preconceptions. When the lights go down,Ž he says, theres a lot of excitement.Ž Q WATCHINGFrom page B1 MOLLIE GRADY / COURTESY PHOTO Jennie Famiglio, Mark Famiglio, David Edelstein and Rachel Klayman.

You may therefore feel that the outcome depends largely on whether or not this is your lucky day. But if you consider the matter more care-fully, you realize that making the contract is an absolute certainty, and that it does not matter how the miss-ing cards are divided. Accordingly, you win the heart lead with the ace, cash the K-A of trumps and play a heart from dummy. East wins with the jack and presumably returns a low diamond. Now, though it might go against your natural instincts, you go up with the ace, deliberately rejecting the opportunity to finesse the queen. You do this because by doing so you guarantee the contract 100 percent. Next you ruff your last heart in dummy and then exit with a diamond. At this point, it does not matter which opponent wins the diamond. The next play is bound to be either a club, which automatically elimi-nates one of your two potential club losers, or a diamond or heart, which allows you to ruff in dummy as you discard a club from your hand. Either way, youre home free and clear. Q C O NTRACT BR I D GEB Y ST E V E B E CK E R The better way

KochŽ will remain on display at The Four Arts until May 13. More than 20,000 visitors have viewed the collection since it opened on Feb. 4. The Four Arts in Palm Beach also announced five new dates for gallery talks with a member of the Koch cura-torial team. The first lecture on the exhibit was given by the collections owner, Bill Koch, and drew more than 650 attendees. Additional talks with Mr. Kochs curatorial staff quickly sold out as dates were announced. Reservations are now being accepted for the new gal-lery talk, which are scheduled for May 3 at 2:30 p.m.; May 5 at 10:30 a.m. and noon; May 8 at 2:30 p.m., and May 10 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets to the gallery talks are free for members and children under 15, and $5 for all others.

Nearly 80 percent of the items in the collection have never before been displayed publicly. One of the most exciting items featured is the only existing tintype of Billy the Kid, which made headlines earlier last year when it sold for record amounts at auction. The Society of the Four Arts is the first museum to display this photograph since it was acquired by Mr. Koch. Wagons are displayed on the lawn outside the Four Arts gallery building, and art fills every available space in the museum „ including the ceilings. An additional gallery was opened for the first time in nearly a decade to recre-ate a Western saloon, with a beautifully carved full bar lining an entire wall. Each season, The Four Arts offers art exhibits, concerts, lectures, films and workshops to the community. The organization also maintains a childrens library and the Maurice Fatio-designed King Library, which serves as the library for the Town of Palm Beach. The Four Arts campus along the Intracoastal Waterway also features botanical and sculpture gardens, which are open to the public seven days a week at no charge.

Delivery Service Available facebook.com/woofgangbakeryabacoa 5500 Military Trail, Suite 12 ‡ Jupiter, FL 33458 Phone: 561.630.5800 ‡ www.WoofGangBakery.com ) Visit us in Abacoa ) Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its time for the bold and beautiful Bovine to shake off the dust of the past and shape up with new ideas for the future. This could surprise some folks, but theyll soon adjust. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those nagging new doubts about an upcoming decision should alert you to step back (at least temporarily) so you can reassess its potential impact from a new perspective. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That unpleasant situation you hoped would go away by itself needs immediate attention before it affects an upcoming decision. Expect your supporters to rally around your cause. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre moving up and away from that recent set-back. But remain cautious about finances. An exercise in thrift today helps cush-ion a possible end-of-the-month money squeeze. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Youre still dealing with overtones of pessimism that cause you to doubt your ability to make some needed changes. But the negative pressures will ease up by weeks end. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There could be some fallout from the way you handled a recent family problem. But those who know that you were in the right wont hesitate to step in on your behalf. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Financial strains ease by weeks end. Meanwhile, focus on cultivating that new relationship if you hope to have it blossom into something more meaningful. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Health matters once again dominate the week. Be careful not to ignore recurrences of an old problem. An almost-forgotten commitment resurfaces. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The emergence of an unusual selfish streak could dismay those close to you. Defy it -dont justify it -so you can become your gracious self again. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Reassess your decision to stay with the status quo. It might seem like the sensible thing to do right now, but changes around you could make that choice a risky one. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Move decisively but cautiously when dealing with a delicate personal matter.

The exhibit runs May 4-May 31. The lobby gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and during theater performances. Ms. Aviraz was born in Israel and currently lives in Pittsburgh. Her explor-atory tact with which she approaches her canvas strikes a perfect, mesmer-izing balance. Combining geometric works reminiscent of books unfurled with sprawling textural swaths as unpre-dictable as the patterns of the earth, Ms. Aviraz carefully renders each piece to convey her willingness to experiment with new media and to exhibit the time and work she continues to dedicate to her craft. The award-winning artist seamlessly mixes the stern shapes of her painted ceramic tiles with softer media, inte-grating recycled and found materials into her depictions of figures, flowers and cityscapes. Her work remains end-lessly dynamic and relatable, while her color palette and vivid use of texture reflect the power of shared emotion. The story Ms. Aviraz tells through her favorite medium, acrylic, and its interactions with other media and tech-niques is one of broadening horizons and ever-evolving inspirations that speaks to both her and the viewer with equal passion. For more information, call 207-5905. The theater is on the Palm Beach State campus, at 11051 Campus Drive, off PGA Boulevard.

With school almost out, the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta is gearing up to open its popular 10-week ArtCamp for children ages 4 to 12. At the Master Artists Summer Enrichment ArtCamp, kids will pretend to be famous artists throughout history, creating drawing, ceramics, painting, 3D and mixed media projects. Weekly art projects will range from Pop Art to Baroque to cartooning. The kids will have fun exploring art movements and artists and create their own Art Palette Passport,Ž said Katie Deits, Lighthouse ArtCenters executive director. Unfortunately, in the schools many art programs have been discon-tinued and children dont have a sense of art history. Our ArtCamp will fill that gap and be fun and memorable as the children learn about famous artists and movements.Ž Master Artists Summer Enrichment ArtCamp runs from June 11 through August 17, with the theme of each week inspired by different art periods. Camp-ers will create art in the style of famous artists using various mediums including watercolors and acrylic paint, pencils, pastels and clay,Ž said Cara McKinley, who teaches many youth classes. Week-ly subjects range from prehistoric cave-man paintings to Renaissance supermen to wild Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. This camp has the perfect art-center topic. Kids soon realize that they can have a blast learning about different art movements, and take home some great art to show off to friends and family,Ž said Lighthouse ArtCenter Education Coordinator Robyn Roberts. ArtCamp is available for children ages 4 to 12, and runs five days a week throughout June, July and mid-August. ArtCamp hours are from 9 a.m. to noon for campers ages 4 to 5, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for campers ages 6 to 12. The weekly fee for campers ages 4 to 5 is $110 for members and $135 for nonmem-bers, and for campers ages 6 to 12, $185 for members and $210 for nonmembers. Aftercare, from 3 to 6, is also available for an additional fee. Call 748-8737, or see lighthousearts.org.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 VINOStep outside your comfort zone with fresh new whites When people find out that I write a wine column, they often ask my advice „ or seek validation for the choices they have already made. At a formal dinner recently, one of our tablemates confessed that he really didnt understand all that pairing busi-ness and felt uncomfortable choosing new wines. We drink what we know,Ž said his wife. A nice, dry white that isnt expensive.Ž What I know is there are so many different wines out there, it can be intimidating to experiment. But it can also be fun to find new wines that fit into your budget and enhance what you eat. So today we tackle whites, of which there are many good options. Pinot grigio is popular for its light aroma and color, its soft tones and flavors, ending in a smooth fin-ish. Sauvignon blancs are generally crisper in acidity and possess citrusy flavors. Chardonnays are typically more complex and full-bodied, with notes of apple, pear or stone fruit. Next time you shop for wine, try one of these suggestions to broaden your horizons: Albarino is a Spanish wine thats straw white in color and has bright and zesty tropical flavors like pineapple, and an underlying crisp minerality. Pair this with seafood and poultry dishes. Gewurztraminer is grown in many locations that produce diverse styles. While Germany and Washington make a sweeter style, the German selections generally are higher in acidity than the softer-spoken Washington state selections. Alsace makes a drier version, with rich spice undertones. This is a perfect accompaniment for spicy Asian foods. Picpoul de Pinet is a fun and interesting wine from southern France. Citrusy in aroma, with melons, grapefruit and peach flavors and a light mineral acidity on the finish, this wine is well suited for Mediterranean styles of cooking, rich in seafood and sun-ripened vegetables. Riesling is a noted German grape with many styles. Traditional Rheingaus have a honey-like note and crisp under-lying acidity, while the Washington state style is off-dry and rich in flavor. This versatile wine goes well with dishes like chicken or pork, or by itself as an aperitif. Soave, from the Veneto region of Italy, is another overlooked and relatively inexpensive white. Medium in body, it is supple and refreshing with floral, apricot and honey notes and a clean, aromatic finish. Try this with fresh goat cheese and chicken, or pair with spicy Indian food. Torrontes from Argentina is highly aromatic. Its floral and citrus scents follow through to the palate for a clean, refreshing finish that makes this wine one worth searching for. The crisp acidity will match well with pork and seafood dishes. Verdelho wines are vibrant with balanced fruit and a buttery finish, making them an interesting alternative to chardonnay. Flavors range through the tropical fruits and can include pineapple, guava, melon and lime. It goes well with shucked oysters or spicy Asian cuisine. Viognier originally hails from the Rhone district in France. Today we see it has taken root in many locales around the world, producing wines with complex flavors of apricot and oranges and a nice crisp balance. Try this wine with lamb or spicy duck dishes. Wine picks of the week, with my tasting notes: Q Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling Eroica 2010 ($22): Pale yellow in color, the nose opens with honeydew and orange. The palate is medium light in body with flavors of lime and melon, balanced with a clean acidity and a semi-sweet lingering finish. Q Crios de Susana Balboa Torrontes 2011 ($18): Enticing aromas of peach, melon, floral and tropical fruit blend into a savory palate that is medium-bodied, dry and nicely balanced. Q Domaine Trimbach Gewurztraminer 2008 ($25): Golden color with a fruity, perfumed aroma of spice and lychees, with luscious white peach and tangerine flavors and a spicy dry finish. Q Hughes Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet 2010 ($12): Fresh and clean aromas of pears with lemon-lime citrus notes merge into the delicate palate of melon and stone fruit with a crisp pear and acid balanced finish. Q Martin Codax Albarino 2010 ($18): This is an aromatic wine, with pear and apple notes that follow onto the palate, along with a touch of lime and pineapple, and an elegant crisp finish. Q Mollydooker The Violinist Verdelho 2010 ($22): Big aromas of lemon and spice with a rich full citrus flavor balanced with apples and pears, and a nice long finish. Q Pieropan Soave Classico 2010 ($16): Pale straw in color with fragrant apple and white flower aromas, this wine is alive with apple, pear, tangerine and herb flavors and has a long-lasting finish. Q Yalumba Viognier Eden Valley 2010 ($20): Rich, spicy aromas of apricot, honeysuckle and citrus follow onto the palate with intense apricot and stone-fruit flavors, ending in a rich citrus finish with a touch of mineral for balance.

Welcome to Florida Weeklys Best special section Typical Best ofŽ sections in local newspapers require merchants to buy ads to have their names placed on the ballot. No ad, no chance to win. Thats not our style here at Florida Weekly. We wanted to create a Best of Palm Beach County that was fun, entertain-ing and untainted (for the most part) by commerce. We set out to create a list that captured the character or our unique area with the kind of flair youve come to expect from this publication. Instead of focusing on local merchants, we spotlight the people, places and events that make South Florida special. If someone did advertise, however, we thanked them by including them as a best. At least were honest.And, instead of having readers vote, which is a process rife with skullduggery, we sent our award-winning writers and editors out to scour Palm Beach County for the Best. >> Best place to catch a sunset, Best place to tie the knot, Best place for a romantic rendezvous, Best green market, Best art festival, Best actor, Best actress and Best local band and more.

Coral skies and purple oceans make for postcard picturesque.

During the many car shows and special events that take place in the parking lot, the museum is open to the public. carsofdreams.comBEST LOCAL BAND>> LavolaLed by Palm Beach Gardens native Julian Cires, and already the recipient of at least one best male vocalistŽ award in South Florida, Lavola exemplifies what a band should be: original, brash, loud and tal-ented. Although the three-piece band has undergone some lineup changes recently, lead singer/ guitarist Cires has been a constant; good thing, since hes the songwriter as well. All three members of the band are local music veterans, and Lavola may well be their breakthrough effort: Theyve already opened for bands such as Silversun Pickups and Soul Asylum. iamlavola.comBEST INDIE FILM SPOT>> Mos’Art TheatreThose of a certain ageŽ remember what it was like to go to the movies back when there was one screen in a building, not 116. You know „ when the theater owner actually did some programming, thought about what films would be great to present and picked independent features, not just Hollywood blockbusters? Well, J.R. and Erin Coley, the husband-and-wife team who have taken over the MosArt Theatre, seem to. A traditional single-screen theater (actually, almost traditional, since most of those dont have couches along the walls) that runs offbeat, inde-pendent and foreign films you wont find at the local giganzaplex, the Mos Art is just what every cinema fan with a jones for the golden days needs. And by the way, the Coleys also host art shows, concerts, live theater and educational programs. mosarttheatre.com; 700 Park Ave., Lake Park; 337-6763BEST ACTOR>> Gary BeachGary Beachs name has graced the marquees of Broad-way for the better part of four decades now. He starred in La Cage Aux FollesŽ and, in 2001, he won a Tony for his portrayal of Roger de Bris in The Producers.Ž Mr. Beach now makes his home in Palm Beach Gardens, and has lent distinction to the marquee of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, where this past season he por-trayed Horace Vandergelder in Hello, Dolly!Ž Well, hello, Gary. Its so nice to have you here where you belong.BEST ACTRESS>> Jodie LangelAndrew Lloyd Webber thought Jodie Langel would be purrfect as Grizzabella in CatsŽ on Broadway. He was right.Her voice is perfectly suited to a variety of roles in his canon, including Evita, which she sang memorably in a Car-bonell Award-nominated run a few seasons ago at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, and the Narra-tor in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,Ž which she played to sold-out houses this past season at the Maltz. If it seems Ms. Langel is spending more time in Florida lately, it is because she has moved to West Palm Beach, where she heads the theater program at Oxbridge Academy. BEST DIRECTOR>> J. Barry LewisPalm Beach Dramaworks production of Arthur Millers All My SonsŽ offered an amaz-ing debut for the companys new home at the Don and Ann Brown Theatre on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. Bringing it all together was the companys resident director, J. Barry Lewis, whose leadership of the show won him a Carbonell Award (thats South Floridas equivalent of a Tony Award) for best director, and netted the show two other Carbonells, for best play and best actor (Kenneth Tigar). He also is one of the nicest people in show business.

W W ee k y. co D D A WE EK FL OR ID D D D A A W om FL OR ID BEST FREE FESTIVAL>> Palm Beach Shakespeare FestivalFor 22 years now, Kermit Christman and company have brought a little bit of the Bard to summers in South Florida, with performances at Jupiters Carlin Park and Palm Beach State Colleges Eissey Campus Theatre. Audiences have gotten to meet Romeo and Juliet,Ž Richard IIIŽ and Macbeth,Ž among others, as the ocean roared a few hundred feet beyond at Carlin Park, where the Seabreeze Amphitheatre was built to accommodate the festival. Mr. Christman sees the construction of infrastructure for his company as a lasting legacy. We agree.BEST ARTIST>> Judy FlescherArt is so subjective, but fortunately for us, the judges of various exhibitions agree: Judy Flescher is an original. The Palm Beach Gardens artist works in mixed media, including acrylic with collage on canvas, paper and cop-per, monoprints with collage and watercolors with ink and oil stick. Its quite a range, and she is known for her vivid color palette. Part of her artists statement reads, Art gives me hope, which I want to share with others.Ž To that end, she also teaches and offers workshops. Sometimes sharing is a part of greatness. BEST SCHOOL BAND DIRECTOR>> Paul DestitoLike most other middle school band directors, Paul Destito at Jupiter Middle faces huge challenges. Aside from fighting for an adequate budget for music education (a pillar of civilization), its the job of a band director to turn groups of sixth-graders, many of whom have never picked up an instrument, into actu-al bands. But for really great directors, it goes beyond that: The role requires inspiring the kids individually to become good musicians while keeping them hum-ble and teachable. And by all those criteria, there may be no better band director in the entire country than Mr. Destito. His bands consistently score at the top of every state exam, win numerous awards at annual competitions and, in 2011, sent more kids to the Florida All-State Bands than any other non-arts mag-net school music program in the state. And the kids adore him, coming back after graduation to volunteer or sit in with the current band during performances. Mr. Destito (or Mr. D, as his students call him) gives his charges the very best thing we can ask for from a teacher: a gift that will stay with them for life.BEST PLACE TO ADOPT A PET>> Peggy Adams Animal Rescue LeagueWe know those cute little puppies in the Plexiglas boxes at the mall are cute, but with so many animals in need of good homes, doesnt it make sense to adopt one instead? Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League has a limited intake policy so it doesnt have to euthanize healthy, adoptable animals, and its facilities provide wonderful pre-adoption care, adoption counseling and post-adoption support. It also provides a full suite of other pet-related services, including training classes, vaccines, spaying and neutering and a food bank. Plus, every time an animal is adopted from its hurricane-proof facilities, theres room for one more to arrive, receive care and ultimately go to a loving home. Bonus: You know your adoption fee is going to support the care of animals, not a nasty puppy mill. hspb.org; 3100/3200 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach; 686-6656BEST INTERSTATE EXIT>> I-95 airport exitThe what now? Best interstate exit? Really? Really. Taken for granted by millions of drivers, a good high-way exits brilliance is only seen once its been built or taken away. The Palm Beach International Airport exit from Interstate 95 replaced the old local-road route and made it super-easy for area residents to pick up friends, and for out-of-towners to zip home. But its not just convenience that gives this mighty exit the win, its the enjoyment of driving it. In a state with a dearth of nice curves, these exits can make anyone feel like a real driver, though with its tighter entry radius we prefer the ramp leading in from the southbound lanes. Just be careful „ over-exuberance, while tempting, can lead to a ticket when the speed limit drops drastically as you enter the airport property. €Building designed to Category 4 hurricane standards€Individually alarmed, climatecontrolled units€Biometric access seven days a week€Wine tasting/conference room with teleconferencing capabilities€Private tasting classes, parties, and catered events for up to 1,000 guestsWAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT WE HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU...

For one thing, its up for longer than one night. For another, you can drive through it anytime. And finally, its just ridiculously amazing, featuring things like 10-foot candy canes, igloos, entire holiday villages and Santa piloting a life-size helicopter. Designs get more and more complex as you progress down the lane, cul-minating in the house at the end of the road, which features what may be the biggest, most over-the-top light show in the Western Hemisphere. Snug Harbor Estates is located off Prosperity Farms Road north of PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens.BEST HOMAGE TO GLUTTONY>> Corned Beef Eating ChampionshipAhh, St. Patricks Day: the parade in New York City, the Chicago River running emerald-green, every late-night host in America making jokes about drinking too much, overzealous partiers tint-ing their beer, and the arrival of the worlds best competitive eaters, here to compete in the worldclass Corned Beef Eating Championship at TooJays in Palm Beach Gardens. This is serious business for the likes of pros Joey Chestnut, Bob Shoudt and Pat Bertoletti, who battle it out to see who can consume the most corned beef sandwiches in a quest to win a piece of the $20,000 purse. Fascinating to watch, but wed suggest you eat well before attending. BEST STAIR CLIMB>> Jupiter LighthouseExercise is back in, partly because of Michelle Obamas high-profile program to battle childhood obesity. The problem is that exercise can be ƒ well, boring. So anything that gets our minds off the exercise were getting is a huge positive. And since stair climbing is known to be an excellent leg and heart workout, the Jupiter Inlet Light-house offers not just the best stair climb, its the best exercise you dont realize youre getting. The historic lighthouse, completed in 1860, is maintained by the Loxahatchee River Historical Society and also pro-vides an education in the history of lighthouses and a nice museum for preor post-climb perusing. It also has a great carrot/stick setup: the best view around when you make it to the top, and merciless teasing from your friends if you dont. jupiterlighthouse.org; 500 Captain Armours Way, Jupiter; 747-8380BEST BILLBOARD>> Grand Slam boatmobileWhat exactly is a billboard? Its an advertisement meant to reach as many drivers, in as memorable a way, as possible. Which is why the winner for best billboard isnt actually what most people think of when they hear the word, it is, instead, the Grand Slam Tack-le & Marine Cen-ter Boatmobile, a boat-car (or is it a car-boat?). Basically a full-size boat on what looks like a monster truck frame, a more striking and memorable advertisement aimed at drivers we have yet to see. BEST BUMPER STICKER>> Give me a liftBumper stickers run the gamut from overly serious to completely ridiculous to incredibly offensive. And while many people seem dead-set on advertising their favorite band, indicating their computer prefer-ence, insulting large groups of people or arguing their political positions from the rear of their car, we pre-fer stickers that are more original and, perhaps, a bit self-effacing. Thus, this years winner we saw actually printed upside down on the back of an 87 Jeep: If You Can Read This, Please Turn Me Back Over.Ž FGNN17.'8#4&#./'#%*#4&'05gSW Corner at the Intracoastal Bridge IJEgJMHgEKNN999T9#6'49#;%#('T%1/ WEDNESDAY The Sierra Band 6:00pm to 9:00pm FRIDAY Rich Mojica Acoustic Music 4:00pm to 7:00pm SUNDAY Sway with the island beat of Reggae with “Rythmation” 7pm until midnight HAPPY HOUR 1/2 price Drinks M-Th 4:00pm to 6:30pm Fri 3:00pm-6:30pm JOIN US!

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 3-9, 2012 THE BEST C13 W E EK EK O BEST PLACE TO GETA SPEEDING TICKETThe section of State Road A1A from Juno Beach up past the Juno Pier, is often crowded with families crossing from parking areas to the beach, as well as jog-gers, bicyclists and sightseers enjoying the oceanfront road. So perhaps its under-standable that the police in the area dont tolerate speeding „ at all. Honorable mentions go to U.S. 1 in North Palm Beach between Northlake Boulevard and the bridge just south of PGA, and Gardens Parkway in Palm Beach Gardens. Dont ask us how we know any of this „ it will just bring up bad memories.BEST HIGH SCHOOL ARTS EDUCATION>> Dreyfoos School of the ArtsDreyfoos School of the Arts, a magnet high school occupying what once was the original campus of Palm Beach Junior College, is consistently ranked nation-ally not only as a top performing-arts school but a top high school in general (it was No. 40 on last years Best High Schools in AmericaŽ list). But rankings mean only so much: Results are what matter, and Dreyfoos delivers in spades. If a look at the list of colleges attended by graduates (Barnard, Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Juilliard) isnt enough to convince you, take a look at some of the work by students in the visual arts programs or purchase tickets to a performance by the young people in the music, dance or theater programs. Youll be a believer, too.BEST PLACE TO GET A PIERCING>> Hellcat TattooAt Hellcat Tattoo in West Palm Beach, piercings run the gamut from tame (nose or ear) to interesting (eyebrow or lip) to downright scary (which well just leave up to your imagination). But if youre interested in entering the world of piercing, its critical to pick a place thats comfortable, run by nice folks and uses American-made, high-quality hardware (not imported goods of questionable qual-ity). This years winner is Hellcat Tattoo, which not only delivers in all those areas but employs the lovely and talented piercer Jessica Rabbit (yes, thats really her name), whos warm, friendly and clearly cares about her customers. 4007 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 659-2900BEST NON-MALL SHOPPING AND EATING >> Northwood VillageSome of us remember the days when shopping meant more than heading to a climate-controlled mall to visit the same group of stores found at almost every other mall in the country. Now you can relive those days in the micro-neigh-borhood of Northwood Village in West Palm Beach. Packed with independently owned galleries, boutiques, antique shops, vintage clothing stores and small, unique restaurants, Northwood Village is the best place we know to find unique and wonderful items for yourself or your loved ones. On the last Friday of every month is their Art and Wine Promenade, with wine, food, art, live music and entertainers. northwoodvillage.org; Northwood Road to 25th Street, North Dixie Highway to Broadway. DOWN TIME: Relaxing and having funBEST HANGOUT FOR SENIORS>> The North County Senior CenterThink CocoonŽ: The North County Senior Center has budding Freds and Gingers in its tap-dancing class and Minnesota Fats wannabes in the pool room. Its a happening place „ with a dining room, craft and quilting room, and computer lab. Sure, the card and bingo tables are busy, but the other activities are for the very active who come from all over the area to get in on the free fun. 5217 Northlake Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 694-5435; pbcgov.com/communityservices/BEST SPOT FOR A BLUEGRASS PICKUP JAM>> John D. MacArthur Beach State ParkYall come! The third Sunday of the month finds banjo, guitar and fiddle players gathering at MacArthur on Singer Island. Pickers get in free; all others pay a nomi-nal park fee to hear the traditional music. Bring your own chair, sunscreen and bug repellent, and set a spell.

Its a restaurant, with sandwiches, soups, salads and even entrees such as lasagna „ but many of the foods served by chef Chris-topher Slawson are dried, pressed, juiced „ just not cooked. All foods are vegan (no animal products used) and vegetarian. Youll feel healthier just reading the menu. christopherskitchenfl.comBEST FISHING PIER>> Juno Beach PierSnap up the snapper and clean them right at the sink on the Juno Beach Fishing Pier „ red, hogs and yellowtails school right under the pilings. Flounder and snook, jacks, cobia, shark and king mackerel all are reeled in, too „ depending on what part of the 990-foot, T-shaped pier you fish from. November to March, its a 24-hour operation, but in summer and fall, its daylight only because of turtle nest protection. A bait shop with snacks is at the front of the pier „ just bring your salt tackle. 14770 S.R. A1A, Juno Beach.BEST GOLF HOLE>> The Bear Trap, PGA ChampionIf you cant answer that without looking, youre a duffer. The Bear Trap, the 16th hole at the PGA Champion golf course, is named for its designer Jack Nicklaus. Called the real killerŽ in golf by Lee Trevino, its all about guts,Ž Mr. Nicklaus says. It doglegs right. Theres a bunker on the right, but if you dont land there, youre in the water from the courses slope. Drive left, and you earn a 220-yard second shot over the water, directly into the wind. Either way, its a bear of a trap where many a game has been lost.BEST 19TH HOLE>> Paddy Mac’sThe tiny corner of the bar at Paddy Macs in Palm Beach Gardens is reserved for golfers. Golf is the sport of sports at this bar „ you can try to talk about baseball, tennis or football (European style), but youll be ignored. Mention the Masters or opine on the Open (the British, not the U.S.) and youll hold court. And lets be honest: Golf, shamrocks and Jameson are a happy threesome. BEST FIRST DATE SPOT>> Square GrouperLet us be realistic: First dates dont always go as wed hope. While its important to have a good environment for that initial meeting, its equally important to be able to deal with sit-ting across from someone with the conversational skills of a box of nails. So what could be better than Square Grouper, the tiki bar located at the end of Love Street (how apropos!) in Jupiter? Its directly on the water and across from the Jupiter Lighthouse, so youve got a lovely spot to sit hand-in-hand and murmur sweet nothings to each other. Theyve also got live music to keep you entertained and a fun-loving crowd to give you someone else interesting to talk to, if worse comes to worst. The Grouper can make a good first date great, or a bad one some-thing you can live with. 1111 Love St., Jupiter; 741-0459; Squaregrouper.netBEST BAR FOR LOCAL BEER>> Tequesta Brewing CompanyBeer lovers are an interesting lot: Many make pilgrimages to breweries just to try beer as fresh and delicious as they can find it.

Com-fort, good conversation and fresh, delicious beer make TBC something special. 287 S. U.S. 1, Tequesta; 745-5000BEST SKATE PARK>> Abacoa Skate ParkOnce upon a time, doing a skateboard trick in a skateboard parkŽ consisted of doing a hang ten in the middle of a street or on a sidewalk, while drivers and pedestrians looked on with distaste. But things have changed: Dedicated parks with bowls, pools, ramps and rails provide safe and fun environments where kids can pull off tricks that their counterparts in the 1970s wouldnt have thought were possible. And with a fantastic selection of terrains for beginner, intermediate and advanced skaters, the Town of Jupiters Abacoa Skate Park is just the place for local skaters to congregate and learn. Theyve even got pee-wee session (for those ages 6-10 only) on Saturday mornings, and bike-only sessions three times a week. Prices are just $5 a session ($6 for nonresidents), and annual passes are available. 1501 W. Frederick Small Road, Jupiter; 630-5684 BEST TEEN HANGOUT>> Beach at the Juno pier Contrary to popular belief, not all teenagers like to hang out at an indoor mall and shop for expensive clothing with fancy labels. Some actually enjoy the natural assets Florida has to offer, and after considerable research (consisting of discus-sions with teens, of course), it turns out that the best teen hangout is the beach at the Juno pier. With plenty of parking, theres no problem getting there even on major beach days, and its got a ton of things to offer: swimming, sunning, surf-ing and other teenagers in bathing suits. Factor in the Bluffs Square Shoppes just across U.S. 1 that offers easy access to a supermarket, fast food, restaurants and a drugstore (for sunscreen, of course), its the perfect place for todays teens.BEST PLACE TO LIBERATE YOUR INNER CHILD>> Rapids Water ParkThis ones a no-brainer.

Corbett Wildlife Management AreaThis 60,000-acre park has a ton to offer, from canoeing to hiking, from fishing to bird-watching. Its also the best place we know for those a little less out-doorsy to get a taste for Old Florida from the comfort of their cars. A long and lazy dirt road winds through the entire park and can be entered from either Bee-line Highway at the end of Indiantown Road or from the southern entrance off of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road. Cypress, pine flatwoods, sawgrass marsh, and hardwood hammocks dot the drive, along with plenty of places to park and watch for birds, alligators and other indigenous wildlife. friendsofcorbett.comBEST SPOT TO SNORKEL FROM SHORE>> Coral Cove Park Not everybody has access to a boat that can take them out to the best snorkeling spots in South Flor-ida, but that doesnt mean they cant enjoy seeing the natural beauty of a coral reef. At Coral Cove Park on Jupiter Island, great snorkeling runs from just offshore, making it a great place to introduce children to the joy of an underwater tour, to hundreds of feet out for those more adventurous. Bathroom facilities, picnic areas and a playground are icing on the snorkel cake. 1600 Beach Road, Tequesta (on Jupiter Island).BEST PLACE TO LEARN ABOUT COFFEE>> Oceana Coffee Have you ever wanted to sit down and taste different high-quality, fresh-roasted coffees back-to-back, or compare how the product of one bean changes depending on how its brewed? Now you can, at Oceana Coffee in Tequesta. Opened late last year by a husband-and-wife team, Oceana fresh-roasts beans a few times a week and offers a variety of beans pre-pared in multiple ways along with a great coffee edu-cation, courtesy of the owners and staff. You already know some coffees taste better than others; now find out why and pick one out that really sings to you. FRESH AIR: The great outdoorsBEST DOG BEACH>> JupiterTheres the best, and then theres the legal. The only officially sanctioned dog beach in Palm Beach County is Jupiter beach „ and only on some parts of it are the tail-waggers welcome. From Carlin Park south to Marcinski Road along S.R. A1A, socializedŽ bowsers are allowed, leashed and with poop bag at the ready, to surf, swim or dig. Unofficially, the beaches on the Intracoastal across from Coral Cove Park on Jupiter Island are better „ the water is calmer and shallow for a good distance out; dogs and their people can frolic to their hearts content; and there are plenty of sticks to fetch, thanks to the mangroves that line the waterway. BEST BICYCLE TRAIL WIDELY UNKNOWN>> Lake Okeechobee Scenic TrailSick of dodging those Bentleys and BMWs? Get LOST, cyclists. Only 45 minutes westward is a traffic-free bike trail where you can be one with nature and lose yourself in the ride. The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail is atop the rim of the dike around the big lake. Though its not complete, there are long stretches of paved trail „ from Port Mayacas locks (our favorite launch) to Okee-Tantie Campground & Marina, and from a little north of South Bay to a few miles east of Moore Haven. Take a friend if you want company, and ride self-contained (water, food, toilet paper). Gators stick to the water for the most part, but keep an eye on the weather „ youre a human lightning rod up there. And remember that the trail is inacces-sible from the road for sometimes miles. Search for Lake Okeechobee Scenic TrailŽ for more info, or find updates by real cyclists at palmbeachbiketours.com/lake-okeechobee-scenic-trail-lost-map/ „ especially in the comments.BEST WATERFRONT BIKE OR BLADING TRAIL>> Palm Beach Lake TrailA bike vs. a Rolls driven by an octogenarian can make for a really bad day. Cycling Palm Beachs roads can therefore be risky. You may encounter nutzoid traf-fic getting your car parked, but once on the Palm Beach Lake Trail, youll meet only dog walkers, bicyclists and skaters enjoying the backsides of the mansions and the waterway. Palm Beach Countys oldest trail (it was built by Henry Flagler for hotel guests in 1894) is for casual riders „ good for tots; the fast pedal-pushers take their chances in traffic. Park near Publix off Bradley Place, and ride north or south on it from there.BEST PLACE FOR AN OUTDOOR WEDDING>> Kelsey ParkTheres the beach, of course, but its a bit dicey what with stinging sand, potential tar balls and shark attack victims oozing blood interrupting the I Dos. Avoid all that at the Kelsey Park gazebo in Lake Park, right across from the Intracoastal. Plopped in the middle of an open park with trees, paths and well-manicured flowers and trees, its an unknown jewel. The gazebo is large enough for a good-sized wed-ding party, and there are both an indoor pavilion for a reception and a bandstand for dancing under the stars. lakeparkflorida.gov/content/facility-rentalBEST STAY-DRY SWAMP HIKE>> Barley Barber Swamp Dont expect to see the Swamp Thing „ though there are still a few mysteries surrounding Barley Barber Swamp. The park, located on FPL property in Martin County, was closed to the public after 9/11. Now reopened with a refurbished boardwalk over its 450 all-natural acres, the swamp is a glimpse into Florida as it existed for centuries before develop-ment. Even the gators and boar here look more wild. The namesake of the park may have been a mur-derer, giving tour guides a great story to tell. Tours (Wednesdays-Sundays) are set up through the Semi-nole Inn in Indiantown, a short bus ride away from the swamp.

Want to bring Trigger? You can; equestrian campsites have full facilities for horses. Bring the kids and Grandma, too, even if she requires a fan in her tent. There are 135 spots with electricity and water. And the hiking is heavenly. Or, if your idea of camping is to bunk in your RV, no problem „ but only if its under 45 feet long. Backpackers can rough it at a cleared-out spot with a pitcher pump „ bring your own camp stove and water treatment pills. Reservations suggested for all. floridastateparks.org/jonathandickinson/BEST WATERSIDE CRAFT SHOW>> Sailfish MarinaSail in to the Sunset Celebration at Sailfish Marina in Palm Beach Shores on Thursday nights. In addition to the local artists and crafters who show and sell their stuff along the docks, theres usually a musician or band, and an outdoor walk-up cart selling grouper dogs and conch fritters. Overlooking the yachts and Peanut Island action, its part show, too. It begins before sundown and continues till 9 p.m., and is kid-friendly.BEST SPOT TO LOSE OR FIND YOURSELF>> Near Loggerhead MarineLife CenterSerenity doesnt come easy in public places, but at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Jupiter, theres a nature trail that leads off into the scrub. Just in the middle of it is a bench. Its a world away from the ocean, the highway and all the hubbub, and the per-fect place to sit and just be.BEST PICNIC PARK>> DuBois ParkKeeping in mind that most picnics arent solo affairs, the criteria for a great picnic spot have to include a variety of things to do. And in that depart-ment, DuBois Park may reign supreme. Located right on the Jupiter Inlet, DuBois delivers protected beach frontage, a guarded lagoon area (great for kids), a picnic pavilion, restrooms and showers, plus a huge stretch of ocean beach and the Jupiter Inlet jetty. Fishing, swimming for all ages, exploring, surfing, boat watching and the comfort of real facilities: What more does a family need? 19075 DuBois Road, Jupiter

WHY DO I HEARƒ BUT NOT UNDERSTAND? Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer Until recently, there was no practical way to identify dead regions of hearing cells in the ear. However, a new British-developed procedure using standard test equipment now allows for identi“ -cation of dead hearing cell regions. The study suggests that the presence or absence of dead regions may have serious implica-tions in the “ tting of hearing aids.This research reveals that amplifying dead cells is a mistake which will result in poorer speech understanding in noise. A new type of digital programmable microcircuit is now available using nanoScience technology that can be programmed to bypass the dead cells. As a result, the patients usable hearing cells receive ampli“ cation, thereby improving speech understanding in noise.We are employing a like method in our diagnostic sound booths using a sound “ eld speech in noise procedure,Ž said Dr. Mel Grant of Audiology & Speech Pathology. This test simulates hearing in a noisy crowd. We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency shaping this new hearing aid.ŽThe results have been phenomenal. For the “ rst time, a patient is able to actually realize the exact percentage of speech under-standing improvement in noisy listening environments. These new products come in all shell sizes, including the smallest digital models, with the prices starting as low as $750. During its release, Starkey is offering the new frequency-shaping hearing instrument on a 30-day satisfaction trial.Call Audiology & Speech Pathologys of“ ce nearest to you for your no-obligation appointment.

State ParkOne of the great things about living in South Florida is the sheer number of places where we can get out on the water. Picking a best ofŽ isnt easy, but this year the award goes to Jonathan Dickinson State Park. With more than a dozen natural communities teeming with wildlife, Dickinson starts out with a lot to see and only gets better once you start paddling quietly through the park. Water lilies, slash pines, Spanish moss and manatees provide a feel for what Florida was like centuries ago. Particularly adventur-ous boaters can head up to Trapper Nelsons famous homestead, which is accessible only by boat (motor-boat tours are available for the less paddle-inclined). Floridastateparks.org/jonathandickinson; 16450 S.E. Federal Highway, Hobe SoundBEST WILDLIFE SANCTUARY YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT>> McCarthy’s Wildlife SanctuaryThere are more than a few wildlife sanctuaries in South Florida, but not all of them are on every-ones radar, and even many longtime area residents have never heard of McCarthys Wildlife Sanctuary. Tucked away in a forested area along 61st Street, this non-profit rehabilitation facility founded by Mark McCarthy (who lives on-site) treats hundreds of sick and injured animals, many of which are exotics con-fiscated from neglectful or abusive owners. It is also a permanent home to more than 170 animals includ-ing 22 large cats (even a liger … a lion/tiger cross!). Financing for all of this sanctuarys programs comes from the community and is raised partly though tours and educational programs. Guided tours are by reservation only and provide an amazing experience that you simply cant have at a zoo or safari facility. mccarthyswildlifesanctuary.com; 12943 61st St. N., West Palm Beach; 790-2116BEST DESERTED BEACH>> John D. MacArthur Beach State ParkWhile not completely deserted (really, what beach in South Florida can claim that?), the 7,000-foot stretch at the north end of Singer Island is harder to get to than most, making it as empty as youll find in the local region. Its part of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park as well, so its a completely pro-tected shoreline. Reached via a walking bridge from the park itself, the beach has a large, beautiful dune system and an Anastasia limestone rock reef within swimming distance from shore. It also happens to be the single point in Florida thats closest to the Gulf Stream, which means its a great place to collect sea beans (seed pods that have floated ashore from thou-sands of miles, and many continents, away). macarthurbeach.org; 10900 Jack Nicklaus Drive, North Palm Beach; 624-6952BEST WALKING BRIDGEThe 1,600-foot bridge connecting the mainland portion of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park to the pristine beach section is one of the most beauti-ful walks in South Florida. It passes over an estuary thats home to all seven types of sea grass indigenous to Florida and provides a great opportunity to get a feel for the way Florida was once upon a time. Watch ospreys, pelicans and kingfishers hunt fish such as mullet that regularly jump clear of the water. And if youre too tired or sun-baked to make the walk back, you can always grab a ride from a park ranger.BEST PUBLIC DOCKS>> Downtown West Palm BeachWe all know there are endless possibilities for people looking to get away from it all on their boat, but sometimes all that sun and salt air can create a real hankering for a moment ashore, maybe to include a restaurant or shopping break. Thats where the docks at downtown West Palm Beachs waterfront come in: plenty of space to tie your boat up and wander over to Clematis Street for a meal, a fresh iced coffee, or a supply run before getting back out on the water where you belong.KIDS BEACH>> Dubois ParkDuBois Park is like none other in the area. Recently improved, its large protected and guarded lagoon, surrounded by trees filled with pelicans, is great for splashing and swimming. But the real magic starts when you wander out of the lagoon and wade or swim through the channels in and around the stands of mangrove. Its like wandering through a completely unspoiled wilderness filled with fish, birds and beautiful foliage. This is a great spot for swimming, snorkeling and exploring in a safe and beautiful envi-ronment. Older kids can always head over to either the ocean or Intracoastal beaches. 19075 DuBois Road, JupiterBEST PLACE TO GET YOUR BOAT RAMMED BY AN INEBRIATED TEENThere are plenty of places to go with your boat if youre looking for an enjoyable day out on the water. But if you want to avoid what appears to be South Floridas premier teen-on-a-boat party place, steer clear of Peanut Island. Although Palm Beach County recently enacted a ban on alcoholic beverages on the island (except for registered campers) that takes effect May 18, and police plan rigorous enforcement, visitors still will be able to drink legally on their boats anchored offshore. Looking at some of the people on their way back from the county park (or some of those anchored nearby) would be enough to scare off most careful, responsible boaters, and police and accident reports back up that perception. Instead, try Munyon Island near MacArthur Beach State Park. Its quiet, beautiful and accessible only by boat. And weve never seen a kegger take place there.
