You and I, for example, are never going to be equal. ThereÂs a good chance that I am both uglier and more cheerful than you are, and you are both smarter and more practical than I am, although usually not at the same time (it depends on the challenges of the moment). ThereÂs a 49 percent chance that I walk around with a third leg and a Y chromo-some affecting my judgment, and you donÂt. ThereÂs a 98 percent chance that I am older than everybody under 60, and an 8 percent chance that I am wiser than 75 percent of them. Confusing, I know. So what are we going to do about these brain-freezing inequalities, in a nation where Âall men are created equal?ÂŽ As your personal saddle burr and weekly columnist, I recommend this: We do what we always do at any Saturday night dance. We grin rakishly. We mutter, ÂOh, what the hell,ÂŽ and shrug stoically Â„ you keep your toes away from my big feet on the dance floor to avoid injury and possible hospitalization Â„ and we proceed to Enjoy with a capital E (but not for Equality). So weÂre not equal, big deal. I couldnÂt care less. LetÂs dance. But not being equal Â„ and we are not Â„ is not the same thing as not having equal rights and opportunities. And we still do not. Suddenly, the deal gets a little bigger. And I do care. For six decades now, the same damn question has plagued my life: WhoÂs the second-class citizen, and why? Who isnÂt sitting at my American table and getting results Â„ the same results I get Â„ when they say, ÂPlease pass the meat and potatoes? Please pass the peas and corn and the apple pie?ÂŽ Back in the Paleolithic when I was very young, it was the Coloreds (and various others, of course). They had no seat at the table, so I got the meat and potatoes and they finally got Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka (1954), outlawing schools separated by race. Then it was the Negroes (among others, including women). I got the peas and corn and they got the 1964 Civil Rights Act (99 years after the Civil War ended), outlawing discrimination in housing, in the workplace and everywhere else. Free at last? Can I sit down now and have some pie? Sorry, pal, not quite so fast. Not if youÂre black or a woman or both. So I got the apple pie and they got no Equal Rights Amendment (in the case of women). But somebody passed them Roe v. Wade and affirmative action, and they all got that Â„ a dessert course, if you will, that was more or less the equivalent of half-a-piece of the All American pie. Affirmative Action gave some individuals a leg up, and it ignored equal rights except as a distant goal, which we still havenÂt reached. It used inequality to pro-mote equality in the eyes of the law. But using the ends to justify the means is risky business. The right course, the better course, is this: Treat every single citizen as if he or she were you or me. ItÂs the course of action each business owner, each voter, each military com-mander, each public servant or private entrepreneur or administrator or teacher must take beginning this week: Set an equal place at the table. Do it on the job. If youÂre a boss and you employ women who arenÂt being paid as much as the men, change that now. You call yourself an American, donÂt you? Do it at home. Do it during the day and through the night, then get up and do it again. IÂm reminded of all this as women unite this week in cities and towns across the country to protest Â„ on Saturday, April 28 Â„ their continued treatment as less-than-equal citizens in American society. This isnÂt a partisan issue. It isnÂt a contest between liberals and conserva-tives, or left and right, or Democrats and Republicans, although itÂs frequently cast that way. It isnÂt even a contest between men and women Â„ but thatÂs arguable, with good reasons on both sides. Instead, I see it as a contest between damned Yankees Â„ between the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Or put another way, itÂs a contest between what we do as Americans and what we should do as Americans. In the case of women, never have the oppressed been so comfortable. They can vote Â„and some remain alive who were born when they couldnÂt, before 1920. They can work wherever they can qualify to do a job, like African Ameri-cans can now. And in spite of the continuing efforts of some self-righteous moralists who wish to regulate by law what women do, they can choose whether or not to get preg-nant, and whether or not to have babies. But their comfort and freedom (relative to the past) in no way diminishes the injustice that continues to be done to women in American society. For example, women working today are paid about 80 percent as much as men. ThereÂs no American excuse for that.That said, itÂs also true that well-educated, urban working women do as well or better than their male counterparts. Those statistics represent realities that are inarguable Â„ and it doesnÂt matter whether youÂre a Republican, a Democrat, a member of the Green Party, a Christian, a Jew or a Muslim. What is also inarguable is that such a condition is wrong, by American standard principles. All men are created equal, including women and child-men, or children. The more passionately we embrace that notion, the more thoroughly we become Americans. Q

This week, NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, is holding the largest meeting in its 63-year history there. Protests and rallies will confront the two-day summit, facing off against a massive armed police and military pres-ence. The NATO gathering has been designated a ÂNational Special Security EventÂŽ by the Department of Homeland Security, empowering the U.S. Secret Service to control much of central Chi-cago, and to employ unprecedented authority to suppress the publicÂs First Amendment right to dissent. The focus of the summit will be Afghanistan. ÂOperation Enduring Freedom,ÂŽ as the Afghanistan War was named by the Bush administration and continues to be called by the Obama administration, is officially a NATO operation. As the generals and govern-ment bureaucrats from around the world prepare to meet in Chicago, the number of NATO soldiers killed in Afghani-stan since 2001 topped 3,000. First Lt. Alejo R. Thompson of Yuma, Ariz., was killed on May 11 this year, at the age of 30. He joined the military in 2000, and served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Shortly after his death, The Associated Press reported that Thompson would be receiving the Purple Heart medal post-humously and is Âin line for a Bronze Star.ÂŽ On Wednesday, President Barack Obama awarded, also posthumously, the Medal of Honor to Leslie H. Sabo Jr., killed in action in Cambodia in 1970. While the president and the Pentagon are handing out posthumous medals, a number of veterans of Iraq and Afghani-stan will be marching, in military formation, to McCormick Place in Chicago to hand their service medals back. Aaron Hughes left the University of Illinois in 2003 to join the military, and was deployed to Iraq and Kuwait. He served in the Illinois National Guard from 2000 to 2006. Since leaving active duty, Hughes has become a field organizer with the group Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). He explained why he is returning his medals: ÂBecause every day in this country, 18 veterans are com-mitting suicide. Seventeen percent of the individuals that are in combat in Afghanistan, my brothers and sisters, are on psychotropic medication. Twen-ty to 50 percent of the individuals that are getting deployed to Afghanistan are already diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, military sexual trauma or a traumatic brain injury. Currently one-third of the women in the military are sexually assaulted.ÂŽ IVAWÂs Operation Recovery seeks increased support for veterans, and to stop the redeployment of traumatized troops. Hughes elaborated: ÂThe only type of help that (veterans) can get is some type of medication like trazodone, Seroquel, Klonopin, medication thatÂs practically paralyzing, medication that doesnÂt allow them to conduct them-selves in any type of regular way. And thatÂs the standard operating proce-dures. Those are the same medications that service members are getting rede-ployed with and conducting military operations on.ÂŽ Another veteran Â„ of the anti-war movement of the 1960s Â„ and now a law professor at Northwestern University, longtime Chicago activist Bernardine Dohrn, also will be in the streets. She calls NATO the Âmilitarized arm of the global 1 percent,ÂŽ and criticizes Chi-cago Mayor and former Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for misappropriating funds for the summit: ÂSuddenly we donÂt have money here for community mental-health clinics. We donÂt have money for public libraries or for schools. We donÂt have money for public transportation. But somehow we have the millions of dollars necessary ... to hold this event right here in the city of Chicago.ÂŽ Occupy Chicago, part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, has been focused on the NATO protests. The unprec-edented police mobilization, which will include, in addition to the Chicago police, at least the Secret Service, fed-eral agents, and the Illinois National Guard, also may include extensive sur-veillance and infiltration. Documents obtained through Freedom of Informa-tion requests by the activist legal orga-nization Partnership for Civil Justice indicate what the group calls Âa mass intelligence network including fusion centers, saturated with Âanti-terrorismÂ funding, that mobilizes thousands of local and federal officers and agents to investigate and monitor the social-justice movement.ÂŽ PCJ says the doc-uments clearly refute Department of Homeland Security claims that there was never a centralized, federal coor-dination of crackdowns on the Occupy Wall Street movement. Aaron Hughes and the other vets understand armed security, having pro-vided it themselves in the past. He told me the message heÂll carry to the mili-tary and the police deployed across Chicago: ÂDonÂt stand with the global 1 percent. DonÂt stand with these gener-als that continuously abuse their own service members and then talk about building democracy and promoting free-dom.ÂŽ Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Â„ Amy Goodman is the host of ÂDemocracy Now!,ÂŽ a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of ÂBreaking the Sound Barrier.ÂŽ President Barack Obama insists that he didnÂt announce his support for gay marriage out of political considerations. HeÂs right. He did it out of self-regard. How it must have eaten away at him to be the first African-American president, yet not associate himself with what has been deemed the foremost civil-rights issue of the age. To be a progressive in favor of all things Âfor-ward,ÂŽ but retrograde on marriage. To know that his stance was a transparent charade and see it treated as such by the lefty opinion makers he respects most. To watch his sloppy, unserious second-in-command get all the credit for moral courage by forthrightly endorsing gay marriage on ÂMeet the PressÂŽ while he clung to his artful dodge. As an act of personal catharsis, the presidentÂs statement of support was in an appropriately first-person key: I, me and my. He had favored gay marriage back in 1996 when it was out on the fringe. He was one of the few people on the planet who flipped into oppo-sition as gay marriage became more mainstream. For a while he invoked his faith in justifying his opposition, then he said he was Âevolving,ÂŽ which everyone understood to mean he would embrace gay marriage as soon as he wasnÂt run-ning for re-election anymore. The presidentÂs willingness finally to say what he believes increased the sense among gay-marriage supporters that final victory is inevitable. History with a capital ÂHÂŽ is on their side. The 21st century itself is practically synony-mous with gay marriage. Although this smug confidence will envelope Presi-dent Obama as he campaigns in such lucrative precincts as George ClooneyÂs living room, it badly overstates gay mar-riageÂs prospects. History is littered with the wreckage of causes pronounced inevitable by all right-thinking people. The failed Equal Rights Amendment looked inevitable when it passed Congress in 1972 and immediately 30 states ratified it. Oppo-sition to abortion that was supposed to inevitably wither away is as robust as ever. The forces favoring gun con-trol seemed unstoppably on the march when Congress passed the Brady Bill and the assault-weapons ban in the 1990s, but there are more protections for gun rights now than two decades ago. Gay marriageÂs inevitability hasnÂt been evident to the voters in 31 states who have written into their constitu-tions that marriage is between a man and a woman. The latest is North Carolina, where 61 percent of voters embraced the traditional definition of marriage in a referendum. North Carolina isnÂt Mis-sissippi. President Obama won North Carolina in 2008, and Democrats are holding their convention there. Nation-wide, no referendum simply upholding traditional marriage has ever lost, and even in Maine, voters in 2009 reversed a gay-marriage law passed by the legis-lature. ThereÂs no doubt that supporters of gay marriage have made progress, but they shouldnÂt congratulate themselves yet. Their cause is still subject to events, such as President ObamaÂs fate this fall. If the presidentÂs newly frank sup-port for gay marriage costs him crucial swing states, his coming-out party will be seen Â„ inevitably Â„ as more a set-back to the cause than a watershed.

With a nearly 16-year-old Sheltie being treated for chronic kidney failure and a 7-year-old retriever in che-motherapy for a malignancy that turned up on her annual wellness check, you can well imagine that I spend a fair amount of time thinking that some hard decisions arenÂt that far away. Both of my dogs are doing phenomenally well right now, and I am as comfort-able as I can be with the decisions in our future. But I know that choosing to end a petÂs life is the hardest decision we make when it comes to our pets, and Marty and I can tell you from decades of experience that itÂs a decision that never gets any easier. Everyone makes the decision a little differently. Some pet lovers do not wait until their petÂs discomfort becomes chronic, untreatable pain, and they choose eutha-nasia much sooner than others would. Some owners use an animalÂs appetite as the guide Â„ when an old or ill animal can-not be tempted into eating, they reason, he has lost most interest in life. And some owners wait until thereÂs no doubt the time is at hand Â„ and later wonder if they delayed a bit too long. ThereÂs no absolute rule, and every method for deciding is right for certain pets and certain owners at certain times. You do the best you can, and then you try to put the decision behind you and deal with the grief. The incredible advances in veterinary medicine in the past couple of decades have made the decisions even more dif-ficult for many people. Not too long ago, the best you could do for a seriously ill pet was to make her comfortable until that wasnÂt possible anymore. Nowadays, nearly every advantage of human medi-cine Â„ from chemotherapy to pacemakers to advanced pain relief Â„ is available to our pets. But the addition of high-level care shouldnÂt change much when it comes to easing suffering: If you can have a realistic expectation that a course of treatment will improve your petÂs life Â„ rather than simply prolong it Â„ then those options should be considered. But you must also ask yourself: ÂAm I doing right by my pet, or am I just holding on because I canÂt bear to say goodbye?ÂŽ If itÂs the latter, you know what decision you have to make. Many people are surprised at the powerful emotions that erupt after a petÂs death, and they can be embarrassed by their grief. Often, we donÂt realize weÂre grieving not only for the pet we loved, but also for the special time the animal repre-sented and for the ties to other people in our lives. The death of a cat who was a gift as a kitten from a friend who has died, for example, may trigger bittersweet memo-ries of another love lost. Taking care of yourself is important when dealing with pet loss. Some people Â„ the ÂItÂs just a petÂŽ crowd Â„ wonÂt understand the loss and may shrug off grief over a petÂs death as foolish. I find that the company of other animal lovers is very important. Seek them out to share your feelings, and donÂt be shy about get-ting professional help to get you through a difficult time. Choosing to end a petÂs suffering is a final act of love and nothing less. Knowing that your decisions are guided by that love is what helps us all through the sad and lonely time of losing a cherished animal companion. And in the end Â„ and I hope that end is a long time away yet Â„ it is love that will see me through, as well.

(By contrast, the Pittsburgh airport is nearly 60 miles away.) Mr. Murtha died in 2010, but the airport (which cost $150 million in earmarked funds to build, upgrade and maintain) still, according to an April Yahoo News dispatch, handles only three flights a day, all from Washington, D.C., and about $100 of every passengerÂs ticket is subsidized by the federal government. Q Officials in Burnsville, Minn., have brought the full force of the law to bear upon Mitch Faber (who was arrested, forced to pay a high bail and released under elec-tronic monitoring and only on condition of drug testing), whom they have charged with the crime of not putting proper siding on his house. According to a March report on KSTP-TV, Mr. Faber said he started re-siding, but when the economy turned bad in 2008, he stopped, assuming that the worst he could eventually suffer would be a fine. Q Great architecture Q There are big plans in the city of Chiang Rai, Thailand, for a massive Buddhist temple that priests aim to make one of the most beautiful structures in the world, and have entrusted artist Chalermchai Kosit-pipat to design it in all-white with glittering glass and arrangements of Ârich symbolism derived from Buddhist and Hindu tradi-tions.ÂŽ If Mr. Kositpipat has his way, accord-ing to an April Huffington Post dispatch, the temple will also have images of Super-man, Batman and (from the movie ÂThe MatrixÂŽ) Neo Â„ all of which, Mr. Kositpipat said, further Lord BuddhaÂs Âmessage.ÂŽ Q Architect Sou Fujimoto recently unveiled his public restroom (for women only, though) whose one transparency-enclosed toilet sits in a 2,160-square-foot private garden of cherry, plum and peach trees. The 6-foot-high-walled park is locat-ed beside a railway station in Ichihara City, east of Tokyo. Japan is a world leader in fanciful toilets, and Mr. Fujimoto said he thought the scenery would enhance the userÂs Âfeeling of release.ÂŽ Q The aristocrat Kelly Ervin, 48, was arrested in Salisbury, Md., in April and charged with littering Âunder 100 pounds.ÂŽ According to police, Mr. Ervin routinely goes for a run every morning at 4 oÂclock, and just as routinely, has a bowel movement after about two miles. Most days, that puts him in a certain neighborhood, whose residents have been complaining. When questioned, accord-ing to a Salisbury Daily Times reporter, Mr. Ervin basically shrugged and said he thought many distance runners do the same thing. Q Police report Q In March, Jose Romero-Valenzuela, 34, in a hurry to get to the courthouse in Oregon City, Ore., for a hearing on drug charges, managed to pick up three speeding tickets on Interstate 84, one right after the other within the space of an hour. A sher-iffÂs deputy and two different state troopers charged him with speeds in excess of 92 mph. (Another trooper, specifically moni-toring Mr. Romero-Valenzuela after the third stop, reported that, finally, he obeyed the speed limit.) Q William Todd arrived in Nashville, Tenn., on April 9 via Greyhound bus and faced a nine-hour layover. According to police, Mr. Todd committed at least 11 felo-nies during that time, one after another, with more charges still possible. Among Mr. ToddÂs alleged diversions: shooting up a restaurant, setting it on fire, robbing four people at a bar, carjacking, breaking into a law office and defecating on a desk, trolling hotel rooms seeking theft opportunities and stealing a taxicab and robbing the driver. Said a police sergeant, ÂIÂve never seen any-thing like this before.ÂŽ He was finally cap-tured at Opryland, where he had hidden by submerging himself in water up to his nose. Q In March, WTNH-TV in New Haven, Conn., obtained an ÂinternalÂŽ police memo-randum referencing a challenge from state troopers in one barracks to ÂoutperformÂŽ colleagues in another barracks Â„ in writing traffic tickets. The memo, from Lt. Anthony Schirillo, refers to the need Âto issue at least 60 infractions/misdemeanors each shift.ÂŽ ÂOne day Troop F issued 301 tickets. Troop G responded by issuing 345 ... We can do better.ÂŽ ÂI am asking that everyone, myself included, contribute to this effort.ÂŽ ÂNote: If we happen to issue 350 tickets in one day that would be stellar.ÂŽ (The station spoke to Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut state police, who denied that quotas are given.) Q Convicted embezzler Antoinette Galluzzo, who admitted stealing more than $50,000 from a city youth agency in Engle-wood, N.J., was ordered in April to pay Ârestitution,ÂŽ but the amount Judge Eugene Austin settled on was $10 a month Â„ and only during the period of probation (three years). On the other hand, in federal court in New York City in April, Kerry Haggard, 47, was sent to prison for 6 years on one count of selling fake movie lobby posters. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK S HEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYfor Âone of those signs out on the road, one of those white signs,ÂŽ where some-one has had an accident, where some-one has lost a life. Ms. Cole says her callers are slow to share the details. They may say, ÂMy son,ÂŽ or ÂMy daughter,ÂŽ but they do not say too much. They are grieving, in their way. And they want a marker for their loved one. Ms. Cole expresses her condolences, but must verify the acci-dent took place on a state road. Roadside memorial markers are free to families. The state absorbs the cost Â„ the Florida Department of Transportation, spe-cifically Â„ but the accident must have occurred on a state road. And the fami-lies must fill out a form. Ms. Cole says some callers welcome the paperwork, as they welcome the marker, Âone more stepÂŽ they can take for their loved one, Âone more thingÂŽ they can have in place, one more act of closure. To her callers who sound shaken, Ms. Cole says call me back, we can fill out the form together, over the phone. She explains the purpose of the form would be spelling, for the state to make sure they spell the name correctly, the name that will rest beneath the words, ÂDrive Safely,ÂŽ below the line, ÂIn Mem-ory,ÂŽ each letter of the name capitalized, followed by the date of the accident. Some families call immediately after their loss, ready to see their marker right away. Other families wait to call, maybe two or three years, maybe more. Phone call made, form complete, Ms. Cole sends a request to the state sign shop. Sign made, sign shipped, Ms. Cole tells her callers they can expect to see their memorial marker on the side of the road within seven to 10 business days. Her first week answering calls for the FDOT Palm Beach Operation Center, someone requested a marker be placed on a road Ms. Cole drives every day. ÂA road on my way home,ÂŽ she says. And a marker close to home made her realize, Âhow close to family that marker might be.ÂŽ Families who choose a memorial marker say they do so in remembrance of their loved one. They see the spot of their last breath as hallowed ground, so they bring flowers and mark the site to pay respects, to feel as close as they can be to the one they miss. Psychologists say highway deaths are seen as unnatural or unnecessary, so in an attempt to spare future tragedies, families mark the site, thereby their loss will not have been in vain. Florida now has nearly 4,000 pieplate shaped memorial markers on state rights-of-ways, reports the FDOT. The state started the program in 1997. The markers cost $50 each to make and place. Palm Beach County has 251 mark-ers, Brevard County 60, Lee County 52, Charlotte County 12 and Collier County 10. Anthropologists cannot pin down the origins of memorializing the site of trag-edy, but they cannot deny its rise world-wide. And this proliferation of memori-als pushed the state to create the generic marker, one to serve a dual purpose of remembrance Â„ to remember loved ones lost and to remember the perils of the road. Evelyn Rivera says she never really paid the markers any mind Â„ she saw them, she knew someone had died there, she drove past them, until the day she saw a name. When she saw mark-ers could be personalized, she thought, ÂI want one.ÂŽ She wanted one for her fianc. Eduardo Monge died on Dec. 13, 2008. He was 25. His marker stands a quarter mile north of the Lee County/Charlotte County line. He was riding home from a poker tournament with his friend. Mr. Monge had been winning, his friend had been drinking. The last text he sent Ms. Rivera said, ÂWe should be home in half an hour. IÂll see you when I get there. I love you.ÂŽ Mr. MongeÂs body was buried in Costa Rica, where his mother lives and where he was born. So to Ms. Rivera, his memorial marker means, ÂSomething else that represents him, because I donÂt have a cemetery I can go to and bring him flowers. I donÂt have that, but I have this little spot right here, to feel like this is as close as I can get to you right now.ÂŽ She does not say him, she says Âyou.ÂŽ Before she had his marker, she would go to the cemetery on her lunch break. She would look at the names and dates on the tombstones of others and say inside, to her fianc, ÂI wish I had a place where I could go and cry you out.ÂŽ She read a name on a roadside marker, she made a phone call, then she received a letter from the state tell-ing her Mr. MongeÂs marker had been placed. ÂYou want to have a place where you can go and pay respects, bring him flow-ers, just stay there and talk and know that that was the last place where he laid,ÂŽ she says. ÂI know heÂs not there, but itÂs there, this little marker. And thatÂs fulfilling to me.ÂŽ On ValentineÂs Day she brought him a heart. On Easter Sunday she brought him a bunny. ÂEmotionally, the things you do, you just do to make yourself feel better. At one point, that made me feel better,ÂŽ she says. ÂSome people might say itÂs crazy, but it helps.ÂŽ Palm Beach Gardens psychotherapist and Florida Weekly columnist Linda Lipshutz describes grieving as Âa deeply personal human experience,ÂŽ one indi-viduals must work through at their own pace, in their own way. While roadside memorials might be a comfort to the bereaved and a tribute to lost, she says they also play a part in the healing pro-cess. ÂTo many, memorializing the actual site where the loved one was last alive is imbued with a deeply powerful, sacred meaning,ÂŽ Dr. Lipshutz says. ÂVisiting this location can be a source of comfort and connection with the loved one, and a human tribute to the deep feelings one has shared with the deceased.ÂŽ A sense of peace may also lie in the warning roadside memorials lend, as Dr. Lipshutz says, ÂThere can be some comfort to know that another family has been spared a tragedy because of the efforts of those who have suffered a huge loss.ÂŽ But Ms. Rivera does not believe her memorial marker matters to anyone else, Âbecause people keep on driving drunk.ÂŽ Unless someone has lost a loved one to the road, Âpeople donÂt really care.ÂŽ She sees her marker as a sentimental value, and thatÂs why before she had a marker, she had a cross Â„ a white cross honor-ing her loved one as a great husband, father and son. ÂI wrote husband,ÂŽ she says of her fianc. The appearance, and the abundance, of such homemade crosses gave impetus to the state markers, said FDOT Com-munications Director Dick Kane by email from Tallahassee. ÂDue to a prolif-eration of makeshift memorial markers which were both a driver distraction and potential safety concern, FDOT estab-lished the Memorial Marker Program to commemorate those who have died as a result of a vehicle related accident on the State Highway System.ÂŽ Debbie Tower remembers the emergence of these homemade crosses, call-ing them the Âgenesis of the program.ÂŽ As the public information officer of the Southwest Florida region, she says the department was pleased to see the pro-gram begin, Âa program to remember loved ones lost and provide an impor-tant safety reminder,ÂŽ without endanger-ing the safety of someone else. ÂWe were very much concerned about folks being out there on the side of road on their own,ÂŽ says Ms. Tower, stressing how state workers wear orange vests and are trained to work next to traffic, behind signs advising, ÂWorkers Ahead.ÂŽ Alongside safety issues were issues of utilities, maintenance and construc-tion. Some homemade markers made it cumbersome to mow the grass and most were placed not knowing what cables or water lines loomed below. Ms. Tower recalls one in particular, one anchored underground in a 10-gallon concrete tub. ÂWe strongly discourage folks from going out there on their own,ÂŽ making their own marker, placing their own marker or decorating their marker, says Ms. Tower, ÂBut itÂs so sensitive. Think about it, every single one of us has lost someone we love. A lot of us have lost someone in car accidents.ÂŽ She will not say if she has personally lost a loved one to the road, but speaking on behalf of her department, she says, ÂWe under-stand and we are sensitive.ÂŽ Sensitive as the FDOT may be, they do remove homemade markers. ÂBut we also make an effort to determine who might have placed them,ÂŽ Ms. Tower says. ÂIf we can find that out, we contact the folks and invite them to participate in our state program.ÂŽ But Sylvia Grider, Ph.D., sees any MARKERSFrom page A1 KELLY LAMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYAbove, a marker for Bill Mignogna at Military Trail and Northlake Boulevard.At right, a state sign for Bruce Reynolds on PGA Boulevard and U.S. 1.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 NEWS A9memorial marker as a private obser-vance. The retired professor in folklore and cultural anthropology at Texas A&M University says, ÂI think they are very profound statements of grief and loss and they need to be left in place.ÂŽ Of efforts to remove them, she says, ÂHow complicated.ÂŽ Attempts to control what people do, she believes, will not do any good, espe-cially when it comes to tragic loss. She describes roadside memorials as a com-plex phenomenon, one whose spread to the U.S. cannot be pinpointed, but one whose spread can now be seen world-wide. Dr. Grider says that in Greece, families erect roadside shrines when their loved one has not been killed in a car accident, as a symbol of gratitude. She says these families keep the votive candles lit and the olive oil aplenty. As far as marking the site of tragedy, Dr. Grider says roadside markers are related to spontaneous shrines, meaning shrines dedicated to the loss of many, such as Columbine, Virginia Tech, Okla-homa City or the World Trade Center. But when it comes to marking the site of an individual loss, an act seen at large with the loss of Princess Di or John Len-non, she says such acts may stem from the traditions of the Hispanic Southwest. When the Spanish would carry caskets from the home to cemetery by foot, wherever they laid the casket down to rest, they would leave a little cross or pile of stones, Dr. Grider explains. Such sentiments have evolved to FloridaÂs round 15-inch diameter alumi-num sign, white background with black lettering, mounted to a 5-foot steel post. All state memorial markers are manu-factured in Lake City.SEE MARKER, A10 X KELLY LAMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYFlowers and a cross adorn the marker for Robert Alvin Jones on Broadway in Lake Park.

MARKERFrom page A9 A10 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYRandall Wainwright, manager of the Lake City sign shop, says he has per-formed every duty in the shop Â„ from the metal preparation crew, placing white sheeting on aluminum backing; to the silk screen process, printing the ÂDrive Safely, In MemoryÂŽ message; to cutting the individual letters of a name out on a flatbed plotter. The names are applied to the signs by transfer tape, somewhat like a sticker. The signs are made in bulk. Names are applied individually. The FDOT has seven districts, FloridaÂs Turnpike being a separate entity, and some of these dis-tricts apply the lettering of names and dates themselves, says Mr. Wainwright, explaining why some markers have a birth and death date, while others show only the date of the accident. Mr. Wainwright says the markers mean the same to him as they mean to most. ÂIt represents somebody. It was somebody.ÂŽ He feels the markers always draw attention Â„ ÂYou know something hap-pened in that spotÂŽ Â„ but says frankly, the markers mean more to the families than they do to the 10 others who work beside him in the sign shop. ÂWe do it constantly, itÂs just name after name after name,ÂŽ he says. ÂWhen you see them, you start recognizing (that) at any time, you could be the next person,ÂŽ but not so much when he sees them in the shop Â„ more so when he sees them on the road. And itÂs this Âstraighten up, stop texting, pay attention,Â undertone of the memorial markers that Dan Goldman, Ph.D., sees as their psychological root. Practicing through Peace River Psychology in Port Charlotte, Dr. Goldman says Americans view automotive deaths as unnecessary and unnatural, ÂAfter all, we call them Âaccidents,ÂÂŽ he writes in an email. ÂPsychologically speaking, when grieving people cannot bring back their loved one(s) who died in car crashes, they not only feel grief over the loss, but they also commonly experience anxiety because they realize they have no control over the situation,ÂŽ Dr. Gold-man says. ÂAs a result, they may project their energy onto saving others from the same fate as a way to experience some sense of perceived control.ÂŽ And when it comes to controlling the choice of a memorial marker, James Davidson, Ph.D., suspects age comes into play. Dr. Davidson, professor and an anthropologist specializing in mortuary archeology at the University of Florida, says the death of those in their teens and 20s tends to be a tragic death, Âlike an automobile accident where they die in an abrupt, traumatic way.ÂŽ ÂThis is much different than dying in your death bed at 90 years old,ÂŽ there-fore, the youth and suddenness may compel the need to memorialize the tragedy. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports in the most recent statistics available that a total of 2,261 fatal crashes in 2010 killed 2,444 people. The age group with the highest percentage of drivers killed or injured was the 25 to 34-year-old range. The FDOT cannot comment on the ages of those memorialized through state markers. ÂWe do not keep track of that data,ÂŽ says spokeswoman Ms. Tower, explaining the state places the markers as a service, taking the request and producing the sign to forward the message, ÂDrive Safely.ÂŽ But one man who places the markers in the ground says he has placed many for teenagers on their way home from school, teenagers who work at Publix. Jerome Darling, a building maintenance mechanic in Palm Beach County, calls the families of those being memo-rialized to see if they would like to be present as he places the marker. He tapes the name on the sign, he screws the sign on the pole, he uses a 2-pound hammer to put the pole in the ground. Whether heÂs standing in front of a family or not, he says, ÂThe only thing I can do is shake my head,ÂŽ because he knows itÂs sad, because he knows what that marker means. ÂThat personÂs not here now.ÂŽ Mr. Darling has been placing markers on the shoulders of state roads for more than 10 years. As FDOT maintenance, he also removes elaborate displays, or as he calls it, ÂPeople who over-did it.ÂŽ Wreaths, flowers, candles, photographs, stuffed animals, holiday dcor Â„ depart-ment personnel say they store these items for families to reclaim, for up to six months or so. Of the adorned memorials, Mr. Darling says, ÂThey look so good, people donÂt pay attention to their driving. TheyÂre looking like ÂOh, what a beauti-fulÂ Â„ bam Â„ they run into the back of somebody.ÂŽ So he does not feel bad removing such ornamentation, because ÂIÂm trying to make it safe for me and everybody else.ÂŽ Susan Sullivan does not agree with flowers and teddy bears on roadside memorials. ÂItÂs a memory,ÂŽ she says of the memorial marker. ÂA teddy bearÂs not going to be there too long. Neither are fake flowers. TheyÂre just not.ÂŽ Mrs. Sullivan sees the markers as a service the state does for families to remem-ber their loved ones, tastefully. And on I-95 between the Donald Ross and Jupiter exits, she has a marker for her son. Michael Green died on Feb. 10, 1995. He was 23. He was driving home from work. He was three miles away from home. Mrs. Sullivan worried about her son falling asleep as he drove home from the JFK Medical Center in Lantana in the early morning hours. She asked him to crack his window open and to wear his seatbelt, please. On the morning he Âevidently fell asleep,ÂŽ responders to the scene found him with his window cracked and his seatbelt on. Mrs. Sullivan placed a marker for her son, because Âhe walked this Earth and he made a difference in peopleÂs lives and I think he should be honored in some way of remembrance.ÂŽ She loves when friends or family call and say, ÂI saw MichaelÂs marker,ÂŽ just as she loves seeing someone has left sea-shells or a golf tee on his grave. ÂIt means they remember him,ÂŽ she says. ÂAnd thatÂs important to me.ÂŽ Mrs. Sullivan had her sonÂs marker placed immediately following his acci-dent, but construction kept his marker off the roadside for four years. On May 14, Mr. Darling placed his marker, again. Mrs. Sullivan says sheÂs ready for the phone calls. No longer, ÂWhere is MichaelÂs marker?ÂŽ but ÂI saw MichaelÂs marker.ÂŽ ÂJust that fleeting thought, oh my God it means so much,ÂŽ she says. ÂIt means they miss him, it means they remember him.ÂŽ For Mrs. Sullivan, it brings him here, by Âjust that fleeting thought.ÂŽ Q KELLY LAMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYA state marker, flowers and lights mark where Scott Wilson was killed near Welling-ton, top and left.

After 14 years of marriage, demanding careers and the ups and downs of parenting three active boys, theyÂd begun to bicker and let go of the niceties. Both are painfully aware that an indiscretion with a third party had rocked their marriage to the core. The two worked very hard to bring their relationship back to a secure place and are eager to share their story as a warning to others. When Julie first discovered that Jeff had crossed a line, understandably, she raged and cried. Jeff was consumed by remorse, guilt and self-reproach. Emotions spilled, and angry words flailed. Raw and exhausted, the two looked at each other and agreed, that as upset as they were, they were not prepared to give up on each other without a fight. Importantly, each of them was willing to be accountable for his part in why their relationship had become derailed. They did not fall into the quagmire of viciously blaming the other. Jeff took full responsibility for the inappropriateness of his actions, and showed genuine remorse for profoundly hurting his wife. A sincere, heartfelt apology is the first and necessary step for resolution. Just saying the words, without the tone and demeanor to back it up, will come across as hollow and patronizing. For her part, Julie was open to the process of working through the pain to ultimately forgive her husband. Obviously, it would not be realistic for her to expect to forget what happened. However, she intuitively knew that vindictively holding onto her hurt or looking for opportunities to throw it in JeffÂs face would only derail her efforts to heal. What each of them realized with chagrin was that they had taken their love for granted, not giving their relationship the daily care and attention it needed. Sometimes, we get caught up in our everyday lives, becoming consumed with the minutia. We may become over-ly focused on our to-do lists, or caught up with the children, our friends, or whatever. Sometimes, we just get lazy and become so immersed in Facebook, we donÂt even notice that hours have gone by and weÂre into our own worlds. Our partners may reach out to connect and weÂll say ÂNot now.ÂŽ We assume they understand that weÂre busy or overwhelmed and donÂt want to be distracted. In solid relationships, in these instances, we usually give each other the benefit of the doubt. If our partners seem preoccupied, weÂre not likely to take offense. However, if over time, they rebuff us, we may become hurt or defensive and pull away. And ultimately we may conclude that theyÂre just not interested or that weÂre low on their list of priorities. And, we may just stop try-ing the way we used to. In their efforts to get back on track, Julie and Jeff found it helpful to remem-ber the magic they felt when they were first dating. At the beginning, there was no question that each was the otherÂs priority. They began their courtship with playful banter and heavy flirting. Their time together was precious. There was an eagerness to learn everything they could about each other. In so many ways, they demonstrated how much they cared for and admired each other. There was no place in this climate for sarcasm, criticism or disdain. Julie and Jeff have learned that genuine relationships are a place to go to confide our deepest hurts and reach for comfort and support. And while thereÂs something comforting about being able to relax and show our authentic self to our partner, itÂs also important to show our positive, enjoyable sides. Sometimes, we donÂt make the effort to put our gripes and grunts in their proper place. Even the most sympathetic, supportive spouse can become disenchanted with a partner who looks at life as a never-ending series of stress and nega-tivity. Both Julie and Jeff were quick to highlight the healing power of touch and affection. Holding each other in bed each morning before starting the day can create a warm, connected feeling that goes a long way to wipe out some of the resentments. Nuzzling the otherÂs neck in the evening for no apparent reason, or a play-ful swat when you pass in the kitchen creates a lighter environment. Taking on a flirting, flattering tone of voice eases tension and promotes an air of affection. Surprising our partners with a special favor or treat is an ongoing reminder of how special and important they are. IsnÂt it amazing how we may forget to reach out this way as time passes? Julie and Jeff also discovered how important it was to let go of the need to be right. Of course, there will be major differences in most relationships Â„ whether itÂs an argument over finances, children, sex or in-laws Â„ but finding a way to work through these differences is key. Julie and Jeff had fallen into this destructive pattern and were not aware how they were tuning each other out. Eventually, they made a conscious decision to respect and support each other, even when they disagreed, which enabled them to reach compromises they both could live with. And, to their credit, they were able to successfully tackle the tough challenges to forge a relationship that was even stronger and closer than before.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUID E TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 A13 Jupiter Medical Center has opened the Raso Education Center and Clarke Auditorium, the initial phase of the medical centerÂs $50 million, three-phase expansion. The two-story facility is designed as an educational resource for Jupiter Medical CenterÂs team members, physicians, other area clini-cians and researchers and the com-munity. Participating in a ribbon cutting was Mrs. Shirley C. Raso, who with her late husband Dominick F. Raso provided the lead donation for the center. Also honored was Mrs. Margaret Clarke, lead donor for the auditorium with her late husband, John H. Clarke. The Raso Education Center offers a wide scope of technology and resourc-es at Jupiter Medical Center. ÂThe Raso Education Center is more than just a building,ÂŽ said John Couris, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. ÂIt represents the first complet-ed phase of Jupiter Medical CenterÂs $50 million, three-phase expansion, but more importantly, itÂs our next step in delivering world-class, patient-centered clinical care with an ongoing focus on academic and research excel-lence. ÂThe Raso Education Center and Clarke Auditorium is an unmatched educational resource for our team members, physicians, area clinicians, researchers, and the community,ÂŽ Mr. Couris said. ÂWe look forward to offering our technology and resources to others as we move healthcare for-ward.ÂŽ The newly constructed Raso building features some of the most advanced technology available today. The John H. & Margaret Clarke Auditorium offers a place to host physician lectures from top academic medical centers. An ever-popular educational tool, the free physician lectures at Jupiter Medical Center offered to commu-nity members continue to grow at a rapid pace. Community members hear from doctors on various topics in an intimate setting and enjoy Âasking the expertÂŽ questions. The room offers video presentation capability with pro-jection screens located on the east and south walls to provide easy viewing from any location in the room. Seating up to 150, the auditoriumÂs state-of-the-art technology includes a sound system with overhead speakers and wireless microphones. The computer located in the podium has additional ports to allow for the pathology camera and laptop and USB inputs for presenters at weekly cancer conferences and pre-treatment breast conferences. The room is able to receive and send television video conferencing. This allows physicians, nurses and allied health professionals to attend continu-ing medical education conferences broadcast from any facility, whether an academic or research setting, in an interactive environment. Physician experts in their fields provide pro-grams on a wide variety of topics from neurological evaluations to integrative medicine and oncology. In the near future, the building will have the ability to view live surger-ies from one of the operating rooms in the main hospital, which will allow for a group of physicians to watch it in the center. This room offers two-way communication between the operating room and the center while a surgeon performs a procedure.

OPEN SA TURDA Y 12-3 PM 'U-iÂÂU,i She got her yellow house Â— and learned timing is key in real estate heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF An article a colleague of mine posted on LinkedIn discussed the pros of sub-mitting a personal letter from the buyer to the seller when making an offer on a property. The article was in favor of doing this because it claimed the personaliza-tion could put you in a better position to purchase a property if there are multiple bids being submitted at the same time. This could be a good tactic, depending on the mindset of the seller and the content of what the buyer actu-ally writes. It reminded me of a previous client who took it upon herself to go to the next level. Instead of writing a letter, she went to the sellerÂs front door to meet him in person. Would I recommend this? For the majority of transactions, no I would not. If this is the direction the buyer wants to take, then I would not recommend it without the represen-tation of their broker accompanying them. Writing a letter is one avenue, but visiting face to face could open up an entirely different set of issues not needed during negotiations. To com-pare it to those wacky TV commer-cials that say ÂDO NOT TRY THIS AT HOMEÂŽ I would say ÂDO NOT TRY THIS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WITHOUT YOUR BROKER PRESENT!ÂŽ It all began when my client and friend came to me and wanted to begin look-ing for a new home, but clearly speci-fied she was not in a rush. She told me she could purchase at any time if she found the right prop-erty. The reason for her move was to be closer to her childrenÂs school, so there were specific neighborhoods where we focused her search. The first area we looked was North Palm Beach. If you have never been to this charming area, it is a village just west of the Intracoastal Waterway and was built around a golf course, waterways and parks. I have yet to meet someone who is a resident of the community who doesnÂt have anything but wonderful comments to say about it. There is a good mix of residents and it is also very generational. As soon as we drove into the driveway of the traditional, yellow, one-story home, my client TinaÂs eyes lit up. Inside, the design was open and worked well for her family of four. The outdoor area was the selling feature of this home. The large backyard had an expansive pool area with a welcoming loggia complete with built-in summer kitchen, and the east-west breeze was perfect for the way the home was situ-ated on the property. As we left the home, I could see the glitter in her eyes. She wanted to bring her family back Â„ and she did that fol-lowing Sunday during an open house. They loved it and she was anxious, but she did not want to jump into a pur-chase without looking at other properties first. The following week we continued to view the limited inventory of homes on the market in North Palm Beach as well as other homes in the Jupiter area. Dur-ing each viewing, Tina would turn to me and say: ÂI still like the first home.ÂŽ After two weeks, the yellow home went under contract. She was very disap-pointed and realized that time was of the essence. Three more weeks went by and we continued looking at homes. Nothing compared to the yellow house and I called the listing broker to see how things were moving along under their current contract. Ironically, the current client was supposed to close in a few days but the mortgage company needed more time. The owner didnÂt want to give more time to the buyer but he was willing to be flexible for another week. At that point, we had been looking at homes for more than a month and decided to submit a back-up offer on the yellow house. Tina and her family were in an excellent position to purchase the home. They could close in two weeks and did not need a mortgage. The seller was hesitant to sign any agreement until his current contract was canceled, so Tina and her family waited on the outcome over the next couple of days. During that time, Tina was driving past the home as she did almost daily prior to picking her children up from school. It was then that I received the call. ÂHeather, I saw one of the family members was at the house today so I decided to pull up and knock on the door.ÂŽ My immediate thought was that any ability we had to negotiate was just ruined with that one simple knock on the door. The good news was that the owner knew he had a ready, willing and able client who wanted to purchase his home. The bad news was that she truly lost her negotiating skills if his cur-rent contract fell through. For Tina, though, she just wanted to make her family happy and felt this was the best approach to be put into the first posi-tion to purchase their dream home. As I anticipated, the bank could not close the current transaction and the property went back on the market with-in the week. The owner had several offers, but Tina knew this was her chance to pur-chase the home if she really wanted it. After negotiating through the numbers, it worked in her favor to be able to close in two weeks without any mortgage contingencies. Tina has been living in her new home for more than a year and has a much shorter commute time to school. The family is enjoying all that North Palm Beach has to offer. What Tina learned from this experience is something we all are familiar with. When something feels right the first time, your instincts are usually correct. Time is of the essence in real estate, so always be sure to follow your instincts. Q Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates.

The World Bank estimates that in high-income countries, smoking-related healthcare accounts for between six and 15 percent of all healthcare costs, some $160 billion annually. Nicotine addiction is notoriously hard to break. Even with the most effective smoking-cessation agents available, more than 80 percent of smokers who quit or attempt to quit will relapse. To combat these dismal statistics, the study is focused on an entirely new mechanism to help smokers break the habit. That mechanism is a receptor for a specific neuropeptide (short chain of amino acids found in nerve tissue) that, when blocked, significantly decreases the desire for nico-tine in animal models. The neuropeptide, known as hypocretin-1 or orexin A, initiates a key signaling cascade that maintains tobacco addiction in human smokers. In a 2008 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Mr. Kenny and colleagues showed that blocking hypo-cretin-1 receptors not only decreased nicotine use in animal models, but also abolished the stimulatory effects of nicotine on brain reward circuitries. These results demonstrated that hypocretin-1 plays a major role in driving the desire for more nicotine. These findings also highlighted the importance of hypocretin-1 receptors in a region of the brain called the insula, a walnut size part of the fron-tal lobe. While all mammals have insula regions that sense the bodyÂs internal physiological state and direct responses to maintain homeostasis, this region has also been implicated in cravings. In one study, it was reported that smokers who sustained damage to the insula lost the desire to smoke, an insight that revealed the insula as key for sustaining the tobacco habit in smokers.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SAL TY NIGHTSLetting go of being rightWhen it comes to pop culture, IÂm often behind the curve. I like to wait until the hype over a new movie or CD or book has faded so that my take isnÂt clouded by popular opinion. Which is why IÂm only now coming to read ÂThe Corrections,ÂŽ Jonathan FranzenÂs 2001 National Book Award-winning novel about the members of a Mid-western family. ItÂs taken me more than a month to slog through its 466 pages Â„ not because itÂs not brilliantly writ-ten (which it is) or because the story isnÂt compelling (itÂs that, too) Â„ but because the characters are so inher-ently unlikeable. Mr. Franzen is a master of voice and a perceptive chronicler of the human condition, but I would hate to know any of the characters in his book. Much of the story centers on Alfred and Enid Lambert, a couple married more than 40 years, whose relationship is a study in marital dysfunction. In the last pages of the book, Enid visits Alfred at the nursing home where he lives out his final days and unloads a lifetimeÂs worth of passive-aggression. ÂSheÂd felt wrong all her life and now she had a chance to tell him how wrong he was,ÂŽ the book says. ÂShe had to come and tell Alfred that he was wrong to drib-ble ice cream on his clean, freshly pressed pants. He was wrong not to recognize Joe Person when Joe was nice enough to drop in. He was wrong not to look at snapshots of Aaron and Caleb and Jonah. He was wrong not to be happy or grateful or even remotely lucid when his wife and daughter went to enormous trouble to bring him home for Thanksgiving dinner.ÂŽ ItÂs a tough scene to get through, mostly because it hits so close to the truth. WeÂve all witnessed those couples Â„ some together for decades, some just down the aisle Â„ who engage in the same emphatic insistence on being right, a behavior pattern that is appealing in its own unhealthy way, like fast food or pop music.Katherine Woodward Thomas, author and psychologist who I seem to be quoting every week, says that letting go of the need to be right will make a monumental difference in our relationships. ÂIt feels good to be a big person Â„ the one to forgive, the one to apologize first, the one to give up saving face,ÂŽ she writes in ÂCalling in ÂThe OneÂ: 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life.ÂŽ She tells us: ÂOnce you take a deep breath and give up the need to be right, to look good, to punish someone for hurting you, or to make someone wrong, then you are free to experience a profound love that becomes a way of life.ÂŽ Which is exactly what most of us are aiming for. We get so wrapped up in asserting our infallibility that we lose sight of the ultimate goal of our rela-tionships: to make ourselves and our partners happy. Why not take a step back, open our curled fists, and try Â„ for a few hours, for a few days Â„ not being right. That could mean the difference between being unlikeable characters and characters that others love. And that makes all the difference in the world. Am I right?

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 B3 CO NTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER Everybody has 13 cardsAssume youÂre declarer in six notrump and West leads a heart. You can count 11 sure tricks after the ace of diamonds is forced out, and the problem is how to score a 12th. It might come from clubs or spades if either suit breaks 3-3, or if the jack of clubs falls singleton or doubleton. LetÂs say you win the heart lead with the jack and play the king of diamonds. West wins with the ace and returns another heart, which you take with the ace. At this point you inaugurate a campaign to learn all you possibly can about the distribution of the unseen hands. The first thing you do is cash dummyÂs king of hearts, on which East discards a diamond. Next, you cash the Q-J of diamonds, on which West discards a heart. Both of these moves prove enlighten-ing, because you learn that West started with five hearts and two diamonds, and that East started with two hearts and five diamonds. You next cash the Q-K-A of spades, and when West discards a heart on the third spade, you have all the information you need to wrap up the slam. West started with exactly five hearts, two spades and two diamonds, so he must have been dealt precisely four clubs. Taking advantage of this knowledge is as easy as pie. You cash dummyÂs king of clubs, lead a low club to your ace and return a third club toward dum-myÂs Q-10. When West follows low, you finesse the ten, confident that unless the laws of mathematics no longer apply, the finesse will succeed and yield your 12th trick. Q

I feel like Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis are there and that presidents are probably watching.ÂŽ Maybe the Nunziatas are from another time. ÂFor us, all of the Rat Pack era really inspired us. Our parents had it playing all the time, especially during the holi-days,ÂŽ Will says. Part of the show will be a tribute to Mr. Davis. ÂHe was so raw, so real and so emotional. He in particular was just a performer that Anthony and I just naturally aspired to be because he was always so truthful in his storytelling,ÂŽ Will says. That storytelling ability has led to other things. ÂIÂm really happy to do what I love to do and to see the growth in the amount of work that weÂre getting,ÂŽ Anthony says. ÂWeÂve been able to continue trav-eling all around the country. Of course, the big thing that happened this year was the release of our debut album.ÂŽ Their debut album, titled ÂMake Someone Happy,ÂŽ offers a mix of mate-rial from the Great American Song-book, some show tunes and contempo-rary music. It was recorded in a Âbeautiful, beautiful studioÂŽ in Hoboken, N.J., says Will. ÂIt was really great. We had done some professional recordings for jingles when we were younger. But this was totally different while we were there.ÂŽ As lads, the Nunziatas recorded the jingle for Honey Nut Cheerios. How times have changed.ÂMake Someone HappyÂŽ has the famous title cut, as well as songs by Sondheim (ÂPretty WomenÂŽ), Charlie Chaplin (ÂSmileÂŽ) and the Neopolitan classic ÂFuniculi, Funicula.ÂŽ ÂIt came about because people were asking if we had a CD. It got to a point where we both said letÂs do it. We got together and said we were both on the same page with what we wanted to do,ÂŽ says Anthony, the older brother. ItÂs an intimate album, he says, with just piano and bass. ÂWeÂre just so pleased with it, and as fate would have it, we were blessed to meet Steven Sorrentino of Barnes & Noble,ÂŽ says Anthony. ÂHe heard our CD and said theyÂd do a CD signing at their New York flagship store. That has been such a blast to go from Naples, Florida, to Raleigh to Boston.ÂŽ Will agrees, and says it points to the brothersÂ growth as men and as artists. ÂItÂs been tenfold. These past few years, Anthony and I have been per-forming and weÂve been able to learn which songs fit us. WeÂve been able to read audiences Â„ we even went to Sin-gapore,ÂŽ he says. ÂWeÂre trying to read how different audiences react to our concert, and to gauge where we are as artists.ÂŽ And that is part of their development, both as brothers and performers. ÂYes, our bond has grown, because we wake up everyday for the business of Will and Anthony. We know that if we put in the work on the business side thatÂs only going to allow us more opportunities to perform,ÂŽ Anthony says. They do all their own marketing and public relations, right down to setting times for interviews and such. ÂLook at the Joan Rivers documentary. Even at her age she is still on the phone and driving to the middle of nowhere to do a gig, and there she is doing a TV show,ÂŽ Anthony says. ÂWe pride ourselves on our work ethic and we wear all the hats Â„ print, ad copy.ÂŽ ThatÂs a harmony that extends beyond the music. ÂIt grows on a deeper level. WeÂre professional partners as well,ÂŽ Anthony says. Like a married couple?ÂWeÂve been brothers for 28 years, but I feel like weÂve been married, too, but finishing each otherÂs sentences is part of that,ÂŽ Will says. Q NUNZIATASFrom page B1 John D.

The competition will feature nearly 100 racers drifting on the newly configured road course, where cars will slide at speeds of over 100 mph. The two-day competition starts on June 1 as two levels of drifting profes-sionals take to the track. The Formula DRIFT Racing Series is comprised of professional drifters from throughout the world to compete in seven rounds. Once an underground event, drifting is now popular nationwide. The Formula DRIFT race at Palm Beach International Raceway is a high-powered, high skilled motorsport where professional drivers intentionally maneuver their cars into execut-ed controlled sideways sliding at high speeds through a marked course chal-lenging the driversÂ ability and control. In this racing series, engine and body modification become second to driving skill. Drivers are judged on execution and style, rather than who finishes the course in the fastest time. Last year, the modified layout of PBIR proved to be the most challenging course yet for the drivers in the series. Drivers faced a highly technical track with high-speed and high-angle entry and were not afraid to swap paint. On June 1 drivers will take to the track for their practice and qualifying rounds. Gates open at noon both days. Tickets start at $26. Advance tickets are available at racepbir.com. Q DRIFT series set June 1-2 at Palm Beach racewaySPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY

Hr R n CEO, R D V C P B Gnr M ZCEO F G r Jr r r r Â‰ÂÂÂÂ‘ÂŽÂˆÂ‘Â‘ÂŽÂˆ r r Tn n FatherÂs Day is coming in June, so think ahead and try to find a unique gift for your father. Shop at a flea market or antiques shop. Some of todayÂs movies and TV series have made the ÂlookÂŽ of the 1950s and Â60s popular. Shirts with buttonholes, not buttons, on sleeve cuffs need cufflinks. Most dealers who sell jewelry also sell inexpensive and unusual vintage cufflinks Â„ costume jew-elry links more than 50 years old Â„ for $10 to $30. Expensive silver and gold cufflinks with precious stones can sell for $750 to $1,000. The breast pocket handkerchief also has come back. These often are seen at flea markets, carefully folded and stacked, at prices from $2 to $15. Old toy trains, cars and games are easy to find, and so are bookends, duck decoys and tools. The list is almost endless. Smoking is out of style, but all the collectibles associated with smoking are easy to find. Ashtrays, old lithographed tin boxes that held tobacco, bargain-priced carved Meershaum pipes with amber mouthpieces, advertising signs and cigarette lighters are interesting gifts even if your father doesnÂt smoke. The most unusual find this year originally was used by a cigar smoker, but it probably is displayed on a library shelf today, useless but fun. It is a French walnut and ivory cigar cutter shaped like a small guillotine. The 19th-century oddity, called a ÂGuillotube,ÂŽ is 17 inches high and has a working blade. Keep it locked away from children. ItÂs a macabre reminder of the French Revolu-tion and of the danger of smoking cigars. It sold for $1,464 at a 2011 auction in New Orleans. Q: I own an Eames lounge chair and ottoman I purchased in the 1970s. I have had offers from dealers who want to purchase the set even though the leather on the ottoman is heavily worn. If I have the ottoman re-covered, would I increase the setÂs value? A: The famous Eames lounge chair and ottoman have been in continuous production since 1956. In the United States, the manufac-turer since the beginning has been Herman Miller Inc., of Zeeland, Mich. We suspect that your chair interests dealers because of the plywood frameÂs finish. Chairs that have plywood frames with Brazilian rose-wood veneer sell for high prices because an embargo on Brazilian rosewood has been in place since 1992. DonÂt both-er re-covering the ottoman. Q: I have a color woodcut print by Paul Jacoulet called ÂJoaquina et sa mere.ÂŽ It is signed and numbered Â163.ÂŽ My moth-er-in-law wrote on the back that the first print in the series was given to Pope Pius XII. IÂm interested in learning the value of this print. A: Paul Jacoulet (19021960) was born in France and spent most of his life in Japan. He made Japanese woodblock prints that were issued in series and sold by subscription. Each series had a distinctive seal, such as a sparrow or butterfly. The complete title of your print is ÂJoaquina et sa mere au Sermon du Pere Pon.ÂŽ That roughly translates to ÂJoaquina and her mother to the sermon of Father Pon,ÂŽ so perhaps that was why it was given to the Pope. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago sold this print for $620 in 2011. Q: I have an old Winchester poster advertising hunting rifles. At the bottom of the poster are the words, ÂWinchester Western, copyright 1908 by Winchester Repeating Arms Co., American Lithograph Co., N.Y.ÂŽ The poster, 15 5/8 by 20 inches, pictures two black men and a dog running away from a skunk emerging from a hollow log. I paid $45 for it. Is it worth more than that? A: We donÂt know if your poster is a copy of the original or a trimmed original. We do know that the originals were larger, 25 by 33 inches, and that they were printed with a title along the bot-tom: ÂShoot Them and Avoid Trouble.ÂŽ It is believed that Winchester recalled many of the posters because of the titleÂs racist overtones and trimmed the posters for redis-tribution to Winchester dealers. If you had an uncut original in excellent condition, it could sell for more than $3,000. If you have a trimmed original, it might be worth $500. Copies sell for about $35-$40. Q: In a house we were cleaning out after a death in our family, we found a round col-lectorÂs plate that pictures the Madonna and Child. The picture is signed ÂJessie Willcox Smith.ÂŽ What can you tell me about the plate and the artist? A: Jessie Willcox Smith (1863-1935) was a famous American illustrator whose work was used extensively in magazines and chil-drenÂs books. She was born in Philadelphia and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts there before taking classes from Howard Pyle, another well-known illustra-tor. Collector plates using SmithÂs images were first made well after her death. They donÂt sell for more than about $20. Check the back of your plate to see if there is a mark that may help you date the plate and identify the company that made it. Tip: Allergic to dust and dust mites? Put old stuffed animals in a sealed plastic bag, then put the bag in your freezer for 24 hours. The temperature will kill dust mites and their eggs.

There will be furniture, toys, glassware, silver, jewelry, lighting, textiles and more. Yes, itÂs hot during summer, but most of the dealers are inside the air-conditioned Expo Center, which has free parking. Food also is available in the Expo Center, and it is near restaurants, for dining off-site. The show will be open noon-5 p.m. June 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. June 2 and 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. June 3, at the South Florida Fairgrounds, off Southern Boulevard, just east of U.S. 441, suburban West Palm Beach.

Use it to straighten out any outstand-ing problems related to a very personal situation. Also, pay closer attention to financial matters. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming deci-sions.

There are some nice parts, includ-ing some quirky humor and inspired montages, but as a whole it drags to 113 minutes and never inspires interest. Rated PG-13. Girl In Progress + (Eva Mendes, Matthew Modine, Cierra Ramirez) An overworked and distant single mother (Mendes) doesnÂt notice that her teenage daughter (Ramirez) is acting out. Manipulative and painfully predictable, there is nothing you wonÂt see coming, and none of it is done very well. Rated PG-13. The Avengers +++ (Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans) When ThorÂs (Chris Hem-sworth) brother Loki (Hiddleston) tries to take over Earth, S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assem-bles EarthÂs finest superheroes for the fight. Hulk has the best moments, and the last half-hour is as exciting as it gets. This is everything a summer movie should be. Rated PG-13. Q CAPSULES +++ Is it worth $10? YesThe best movies are, not coincidentally, also the smartest. They endeavor not just to entertain but also to comment on society, politics, for-eign relations, etc. For comedies this is harder because itÂs easy to write some-thing off as a meaningless silly joke, but everyone knew what Charlie Chaplin was doing in 1940 when he made ÂThe Great DictatorÂŽ to mock Hitler. Similar-ly, everyone knows Sacha Baron Cohen is ridiculing the likes of Kim Jong Il and Saddam Hussein with ÂThe Dictator,ÂŽ a funny if not always biting satire on Amer-ican politics and culture. Cohen plays a filthy rich North African dictator named Aladeen who pays famous celebrities for sex, kills his citizens at will and has changed 300 words in his languageÂs dictionary to ÂAla-deen.ÂŽ He rules without regard for anyone but himself, and goes so far as to have a 1972 Munich Olympics simulation on his Wii that allows him to knock on the Israeli teamÂs door and go in shooting. Cohen can get away with this because heÂs Jewish and, letÂs be honest, youÂre an idiot if you take it seriously. Power hungry Aladeen threatens the world with nuclear war and is forced to come to New York City when the U.N. threatens to attack his country. But after a backstabbing assistant named Tamir (Ben Kingsley) helps cast him aside for a body double, Aladeen is lost and alone in the big city, and New Yorkers donÂt take kindly to his entitled ways. Fortunately for him he meets Zooey (Anna Faris), a shorthaired and hairy liberal feminist who loves to employ aliens because the government always gives them an unfair shake. Predict-ably, Aladeen has a chauvinistic attitude toward women and rarely has some-thing nice to say to her, but he changes stride when he realizes he needs her catering company to get him into the U.N. to retain his rightful place as an oppressor of freedom. Directed by Larry Charles (ÂBoratÂŽ), the film is funny throughout: Aladeen canÂt keep a straight face when telling his people the plans for nuclear arms, he playfully toys with 9/11 humor, and thereÂs a point-of-view shot you prob-ably never thought youÂd see. Some of it is smart and some of it is shocking Â„ and itÂs all outrageous, which is what we want and expect. That said, similar to what he did in ÂBorat,ÂŽ CohenÂs best moments come when he pokes fun at American conven-tions. Aladeen refers to African-Americans as Âsub-Saharans,ÂŽ his friend Nadal (Jason Mantzoukas) has a great line about Crocs shoes and ApplebeeÂs, and AladeenÂs filibuster in the end is some of the smartest writing youÂll find in a comedy (I found this scene in particular to be topical, witty and, most alarm-ingly, very true). In an age when comedians will do anything for a laugh, Sacha Baron Cohen is willing to push things the furthest. HeÂs fearless, talented and intelligent enough to know that his appeal comes from his courage and peopleÂs familiar-ity with the subject matter. Although ÂThe DictatorÂŽ doesnÂt always connect, it features a bold humor that is surpris-ingly hard to find. Q >> Megan Fox and John C. Reilly have cameos in Â“The Dictator.Â” Watch for them.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 24-30, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 VINORieslings are as varied as the many places that produce themWine drinkers generally know what to expect when ordering a cabernet, char-donnay or sauvignon blanc. But their confidence is apt to evaporate when faced with Rieslings. Based on previous Â„ and possibly limited Â„ experience, they might shun them because they fear they will be too sweet or, conversely, too tart. They arenÂt sure how to pair a Ries-ling with food. With a bit of experimentation, however, wine drinkers can find that Rieslings range widely, more than most grape varietals. They possess complex flavors and run the gamut from starkly sweet to crisp and dry. Pricewise, they are easy to swallow, generally coming in at less than $25 a bottle. Most importantly, they pair well with a variety of foods because they have a higher acidity than many wines. Seafood pairs well with drier styles and their mineral notes, while spicy foods go marvelously with a light sweet Riesling that cuts through the heat. One common theme, no matter where Riesling is produced, is an enticing per-fumed bouquet thatÂs layered with stone fruit, apple and citrus notes. First grown in Germany in the 15th century, Riesling wines range from very dry (trocken) to incredibly sweet late-harvest wines with enormous power and longevity. The Germans produce Rieslings with apricot and citrus flavors, and the sweeter wines have a distinctive honey flavor as well. These late-harvest wines (auslese, beerenauslese and trock-enbeerenauslese) are afflicted on the vine with botrytis cinerea, a mold that punctures the grape skin in thousands of little spots, allowing the moisture out and concentrating the flavors and acids left behind. This same mold in Bordeaux makes rich and much-sought-after Sau-ternes such as Chateau DÂ Yquem, occur-ring there on sauvignon blanc and semil-lon grapes. Alsace-Lorraine produces a dry, crisp and well-balanced Riesling. When young, these wines are light yellow-green in color with flowery aromas and apple and citrus notes; when aged, they develop mineral flavors that make them great mates to seafood, as well as tradi-tional Alsatian meals featuring sausage and hearty meat dishes. Australian Rieslings were brought from Germany in the 1840s, and the wines produced are dry, crisp and racy, with an underlying minerality. Typical flavors include floral notes, with apple and tropical fruit merging with stone fruits on the palate. Austrian Rieslings resemble their German cousins, but the flavors are more focused on peach and softer fla-vors because of their lower acid content. The wines are drier and a little lower in alcohol as well. These wines are harder to find in our local marketplace because total vineyard acreage is roughly half that of Germany. California Rieslings are drier and typically possess peach, pear, apricot and lemon flavors. The better ones come from cooler climes such as Monterey and Mendocino counties. Washington State makes excellent Rieslings as well, where the wines are usually a little lower in acid than those from the Old World. This enables the wines to be softer in flavor and in the mouth, while retaining the typical fruit profiles with apple and citrus predomi-nant. Wherever it is made, Riesling is truly a delicious wine with many different styles and flavors.

Along with the Sip, Savor & Stroll bar menus at the restaurants, which feature special pricing at happy hour, diners can pick up a reward card at the participating venues. Buy six lunches at any of the restaurants and your seventh is free. Diners have until Oct. 31 to get in on the deal at Vic & AngeloÂs, SpotoÂs Oyster Bar, Water Bar, Prosecco Caf, Sushi Jo and RoccoÂs Tacos. Food critics and other foodies were given a sneak peek at the tastings from several restaurants within the mile-long plaza and participants were intro-duced to new menu items. Vic & AngeloÂs featured a pear-cheese tortellini and signature meatballs with a house sangria for the tasting. Here, find fresh handmade pastas and coal-fired pizzas, meal-worthy salads and sand-wiches at lunch and dinner. Oyster shooters and crab cakes were favorites at SpotoÂs Oyster Bar, where the emphasis is on the bivalves. Their clam chowder and crab cakes win criti-cal acclaim as well. Fresh fish dishes and landlubber fare fill out the menu in the main dining room and adjacent Blue Point bar, where live music is found on certain nights. SpotoÂs newer restaurant, the Water Bar, has a wide variety of fresh fish on a list daily, as well as unique offerings like tempura rock shrimp, signature fish chowder, macadamia-crusted snap-per, grilled sea scallops with a Water Bar tomato aioli and the house favorite appetizer, krackle bread and hummus. An extensive wine list put together by owner John Spoto has a few hard-to-find choices on it. The redesigned interior (it was the old Oakwood Grill) met with crowd approval. Memorable house-made brioche buns for the new kobe beef sliders and caramelized onion Âpiatto paneÂŽ Â„ pressed flatbread, are new items at the Prosecco Caf. Bakery goods, soups and a number of hot and cold salads and sandwiches Â„ with breads made in-house Â„ are available here along with wine and beer. TheyÂre open early for breakfast, as well Â„ try the organic Swiss muesli. RoccoÂs Tacos is the newest eatery to open in the Commons, and vivacious crowds there have filled up on guaca-mole made tableside, or loaded nachos, but the namesake tacos are the house favorite. Get them with pork, al carbon, or chicken Â„ or go vegetarian. ItÂs a casual restaurant to hit with a group to try any number of combos or platters, since the menu is extensive at both lunch and dinner. RoccoÂs also specializes in a tequila selection hand-chosen by Rocco Mandel, who occasionally shows up to pour free shots. Sushi Jo turns out fresh sushi by the boatload Â„ literally. Small or large boats of sushi and sashimi will feed a party, and thereÂs an extensive sake list here to make it a festive event. The list of sushi rolls can be overwhelm-ing Â„ tell the chef what you like and let them make it to your order. Creative cocktails are shaken at the bar; their tempura banana cheesecake is a worthy finish. Desserts and sweets were furnished by Panera Bread, who has cookies baked fresh daily; MenchieÂs Yogurt, where itÂs all up to the customer to mix and match yogurt flavors, mix-ins and toppings galore; and KilwinÂs chocolate Â„ try the sea-salt caramel fudge made fresh daily. They could barely keep on the tray. Q SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY The emphasis at Water Bar is on fresh fish, like this tuna. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Go for the tacos and for the guacamole at RoccoÂ’s Tacos, the newest restaurant to open at PGA Commons.
