Betsy weighed 300 pounds and was rescued on May 25 in the surf off Jupiter Island. With the assistance of the Florida Wildlife Commission and police and fire officials, the turtle was rescued and transported to Loggerhead. The following afternoon, Betsy, the name LMC staff gave to the sea turtle, was found unresponsive. Staff veterinar-ian Dr. Nancy Mettee decided to conduct an ultrasound based on the turtles life stage, the center reports in a prepared statement. It was found that Betsy was carrying eggs. Dr. Mettee, with the assistance of rehabilitation staff, removed the eggs. The clutch of eggs was moved to a nest chamber on the local beach and monitored by the LMC research team. Dr. Mettee transported Betsy to the University of Florida Marine Animal Diagnos-tic Laboratory in Gainesville to perform a necropsy with Dr. Brian Stacy, veterinary pathologist.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIn the 1930s and 40s in the United States it was possible if you were a boy to take your .22 rifle or your shotgun and board a city bus, or set off on a bicycle. You could ride to the edge of town and go hunting for rabbits or birds. Sometimes you shot things you werent going to eat, like groundhogs or crows. Ive been told this by men who were young then, including men who grew up in New York State and New England. In the West where I was raised later, you learned to shoot outside of town when you were 5 (that was the summer of 1958, for me). If your sister wanted to try it, she learned to shoot, too. No one I knew thought there was anything odd about this: a boy at a bus stop with a rifle. Or a boy on a bicycle with a rifle. Or a boy on a ranch learning to shoot when he was 5. Once you learned to shoot, you were then subject to about seven years of extremely close adult supervision, by your father. Your father knew what he was doing and he had an overriding interest in prevent-ing you from shooting yourself, or him, or anybody else. By the time you turned 11 or 12, you had demonstrated conclusively that you would never point a gun at people. You had also made clear that you would not accidentally shoot one of your uncles cows, which were deemed even more valuable than the people. So you were given the right of man-hood. You were finally allowed to buy the rifle youd been looking at for three years in Outdoor Life Magazine or some old cata-logue your best friend had scrounged up. Once you had your first weapon, you spent a lot of time sitting around caress-ing it. Some boys tried out names on their rifles, but they never quite fit. Old Betsy,Ž for example, seemed severely antiquated, even if your icons were Daniel Boone, Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Sgt. Alvin York, Audie Murphy, and your family members (veter-ans of Guadalcanal, Tarawa and points east, in my case). When I was 13, my 14-year-old cousin, Walt Nash, bought a Remington Nylon 66, a new .22 semi-automatic that could carry about 10 rounds. The advertisements said it was so tough that you could drive a truck over it. So we did. Walt laid his Nylon 66 in the road, we borrowed my uncles ancient Power Wagon that weighed about two tons, and we drove back and forth over that gun. Then we cleaned it and went out and shot picket pins with it (foot-long, prairie-dog-like animals that thrived at 9,000 feet and dug holes everywhere, which attracted rattlesnakes and could break the legs of run-ning horses). That boyhood, I suppose, came equipped with two indivisible supplements: a tactile sense of our inalienable right to guns, and the immense weight of American mythol-ogy. I realized this recently when my 8-yearold son, Nash, asked me about the Battle of the Little Big Horn, fought June 25-26, 1876. When I was busy learning to shoot my first .22, I believed that Gen. George Arm-strong Custer was, if not the smartest gen-eral who ever lived, a shining example of American courage. I still believe that. The problem is, physical courage has diddly-squat to do with moral courage, or with moral right, except by chance. Was Custer the good guy?Ž my son asked. Suddenly everything I believed once had to change now. No, Custer was not the good guy, as much as I hate admitting that. He was in the business of stealing other peo-ples land at the point of a repeating rifle. But that wasnt the rifles fault, was it? Everyone I ever looked up to understood gun ethics this way, expressed in a line writ-ten by the novelist A.B. Guthrie Jr. for the peerless George Stevens movie, Shane,Ž filmed in Wyoming in 1953: A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.Ž Nothing could be truer, still. And the same could be said of a cruise missile. Which brought Nash and me around to a discussion of the idiot who tried to blow up Times Square. What distinguishes us as Americans, in some ways, is our historic effort to be the good guys with the guns. Not the tyrants or criminals or zealots or fascists or land-grabbing imperialist lackeys with guns. Of course this idiot, Faishal Shahzad, is an American, too „ and not the first Ameri-can idiot, by any means. What irritates me most about his story is the gun he carried. A couple of months before trying to put Times Square in the once upon a time, he bought a Kel-tech sub-rifle 2000.Ž Mr. Shahzad had legally and effortlessly acquired a semi-automatic hybrid of a pistol and a rifle, with a folding stock, a pistol grip and multiple magazines that can carry 10 or 20 rounds of 9 mm ammunition. In the hands of an experienced shooter pulling the trigger as fast as he could, this would be a devastating and deadly weapon. Unfortu-nately, it remains unbridled even by U.S. gun laws regulating the purchase of pistols. Does one shoot rabbits with the Kel-tech sub-rifle 2000? Deer? Grizzly Bears? Herds of elephant? No. Its designed for shooting people. Should civilian Americans „ not cops, not soldiers or the Marines with whom I once served proudly, but civilians „ have access to this ridiculously excessive weap-on, or others like it? No, of course not.Not cowboys, not cousin Walt and me, not Daniel Boone or Jim Bridger or Audie Murphy or the men in my family „ none of us. We dont need such a weapon for our purposes, anymore than we need a cruise missile. And not that fascist idiot Faishal Shahzad, either. Q „ This column ran on May 12, 2010, after another American, Faishal Shazad, failed to accomplish what alleged murderer James Holmes did in Aurora, Colo., recently. Without stricter gun control, the author believes such tragedies will continue. COMMENTARYGive ’em the good old gun t w p h r i l roger




A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe drug war recedes? amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Chris Christie is not a wimp, a hippie or a countercultural icon. Hes not known for taking time out from budget negotiations to smoke dope, or for his sympathy for drug dealers. Yet he is a soft-liner on the war on drugs. That the combative New Jersey governor and Republican rock star „ just tapped to keynote the GOP conven-tion in Tampa „ vocally dissents from drug-war orthodoxy is another sign that the tectonic plates of the drug debate are shifting. Perhaps our appetite for spending billions and incarcerating mil-lions, in the service of pieties immune to rational analysis is not limitless after all. In a speech at the Brookings Institution, Christie called the war on drugs well intentioned,Ž but a failure.Ž He just signed a law to mandate treatment rather than jail time for nonviolent drug offenders. The Democratic rising star in New Jersey, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, recently condemned the drug war in strikingly similar terms as big overgrown government at its worst.Ž In Jersey, the drug war is getting it from both barrels and both parties. Exhaustion is finally setting in with the enormous human and fiscal costs of attempting to eradicate the ineradicable. People have always used intoxicants, and always will, in ways ancient and new. The Good Book tells that no sooner had Noah planted a vineyard than he drank of the wine, and was drunken.Ž After all the countless resources expended try-ing to keep illegal drugs from entering the United States, The New York Times recently reported, abuse of indig-enous prescription drugs is the nations biggest drug problem. In 2008, it accounted for the lions share of overdose deaths. The war on drugs overseas, a U.S. foreign-policy priority for decades, has only shifted around trafficking routes. Mark Schnei-der of the International Crisis Group notes how „ in the mer-cury effectŽ „ pressure against the cartels in Colombia squeezed the action into Mexico, where it is now being displaced again, to Central America and the Carib-bean. No wonder that at the Summit of the Americas in April, Latin American leaders expressed disenchantment with the entire enterprise. No one crafting American laws from scratch purely on a basis of public health would make marijuana illegal while alcohol „ much more damaging to soci-ety „ is legal. Slowly, the prohibition on marijuana is giving way. Medical marijuana is legal in 17 states and the District of Columbia. Colorado, Oregon and Washington state will consider bal-lot measures to legalize the drug in November. The current regime makes criminals of millions of casual users, but legalization „ even in one state, according to experts Beau Kilmer and Jonathan Caulkins „ could collapse the price nationally and lead to more wide-spread use. Every alternative has its pitfalls. But we are exiting the era when a focus on the harmful effects of illegal drugs excludes all consideration of the harm-ful effects of their hard-fisted prohibi-tion. The debate is becoming less sus-ceptible to cheap rhetorical bullying. If Chris Christie, arguably the toughest Republican in the country, is open to new approaches, theres hope for every-one else. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.U.S. gun laws: Guilty by reason of insanityJames Holmes, the alleged shooter in the massacre in Aurora, Colo., reported-ly amassed his huge arsenal with relative ease. Some of these weapons were illegal as recently as eight years ago. Legislation now before Congress would once again make illegal, if not the guns themselves, at least the high-capacity magazines that allow bullets to be fired rapidly without stopping to reload. Holmes bought most of his weaponry within recent months, we are told. Perhaps, if sane laws on gun control, including the ban on highcapacity magazines, were in place, many in Aurora who are now dead or seriously injured would be alive and well today. The facts of the assault are generally well-known. Holmes allegedly burst into the packed theater during the 12:30 a.m. premier of the Batman sequel The Dark Knight Rises,Ž threw one or two canisters of some gas or irritant, which exploded, then began to methodically shoot people, killing 12 and wounding 58. Everybody sort of started screaming, and thats when the gunman opened fire on the crowd, and pandemonium just broke out,Ž Omar Esparza told me. He was in the third row, with five friends out for a birthday celebration: He started opening fire on the audience pretty freely, just started shooting in every direction, thats when everybody started scream-ing, started panicking. A lot of people had been hit at that point at those initial few rounds, and thats when everybody sort of hit the floor and started to exit.Ž Esparza continued: It sounded like the bullets had stopped, and it sounded like he was either switching guns or reloading his rifle. At that very second when we sort of heard the silence, we realized that that was our only opportu-nity of getting out or of dying. So, at that split second, we had to react and had to exit as quickly as possible. And we bare-ly made it, too, because approximately a second after we had exited, we heard him starting to shoot again.Ž That moment of silence may have been when one of the weapons jammed. CNN reported that the semiautomatic rifle used in the Colorado theater kill-ings jammed during the rampage ... a law enforcement source with direct knowl-edge of the investigation said Sunday.Ž Holmes allegedly had an AR-15, equipped with a 100-round drum maga-zine, as well as one or two Glock pistols with 40-round extended magazines and a Remington 870 shotgun that can fire up to seven shells without reloading. The AR-15 can fire from 50 to 60 rounds per minute. Holmes had a massive arse-nal, easily acquired at retail stores and online. Carolyn McCarthy is a member of Congress from Long Island, N.Y. Her husband was shot in the head and among the six killed in the 1993 Long Island Rail Road massacre. Her son also was shot in the head, but survived and remains partially paralyzed. She was a nurse back then, but when her congressman voted against the assault-weapons ban, she ran against him. She won and has been in Congress ever since. McCarthy has introduced H.R. 308, the Large Capacity Ammunition Feed-ing Device Act. It would ban the sale or transfer of these large-capacity clips that enabled the massive casualties in Aurora, and in Tucson, Ariz., in January 2011 when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot and six were killed. McCarthy told me: The problem is, politicians, legisla-tors across this country are intimidated by the NRA and the gun manufacturers who put so much money out there to say that we will take you down in an elec-tion if you go against us. Common sense will say we can take prudent gun-safety legislation and try to save peoples lives. That is the bottom line.Ž One group pushing the large-magazine ban is the Brady Campaign to Pre-vent Gun Violence, named for Jim Brady, who was shot in the head and severely disabled during the 1981 attempted assas-sination of President Ronald Reagan. I spoke with Colin Goddard, who works for the group. He survived the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, where 32 peo-ple were killed. Goddard was shot four times. I asked him about the refrain so commonly uttered now on television, that its political opportunism to discuss gun control before the Aurora victims are even buried. This conversation should have happened before this shooting in the first place,Ž Goddard replied. This is when people are outraged. This is when people realize that this could happen to them. We cannot wait. ... Now is the time for a change. We are better than this.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.

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.

BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickCan cats and dogs get along? While cats and dogs scheming against each other is a comedic staple, millions of real-life cats and dogs live in harmony, and millions of people feel no family would be complete without at least one of each pet. Getting a dog and cat to accept one another can be difficult, though, as anyone whos tried to introduce them knows. There are some basic steps to getting both pets to at least call an interspe-cies truce. Under no circumstances should cat-dog introductions be handled by throwing the animals together and letting them work things out on their own. That method is far too stressful even in the best of circum-stances. Its also important to keep in mind that introductions can be dangerous, usu-ally for the cat. Some dogs see cats as prey, and even those dogs who are generally easygoing may react instinctively to a cat on the run, and attack the smaller animal. Introductions must be supervised and handled with planning, care and patience. If you have a cat and intend to bring in a dog, try to find an animal who is known to be accepting of cats. Shelters, rescue groups or private parties looking to place puppies and dogs often know if an animal has successfully lived with a cat, or they will test to see how the pet behaves in the presence of one. If you have a dog and are planning to bring in a cat, start working on your pets obedience before you add the new animal. Your dog should be comfortable on a leash and be trained well enough to mind your requests for him to stay in either a sitŽ or downŽ position while on that leash. For the cats comfort, he should be confined during the early stages of an intro-duction to a small area (such as a second bathroom or guest bedroom) where he can feel safe while becoming acclimated to the sounds and smells of the dog. Be sure the room has everything he needs, and make sure he has frequent one-on-one visits with human family members. After a couple of days with the cat sequestered, put the dog on leash and open the door to the cats room. Allow the animals to see one anoth-er, and do not allow the dog to chase the cat, even in play. Use sit-stayŽ or down-stayŽ to keep the dog in place while the cat gets used to his calm presence. Dont force the cat to interact with the dog; if the cat wish-es to view the dog from the darkest recesses underneath the bed, so be it. Reward the good behavior of both animals with treats and praise. Keep the dog on leash for a couple of weeks in the cats presence, and always make sure the cat has a way to escape from the dog, such as access to a safe area with a baby gate across the door. Build up the time the ani-mals spend together, and continue to make the introductions rewarding, with more treats and praise. When the dog isnt interested in bothering the cat, and the cat feels secure enough to come out from under the bed, you can take off the leash and let them get on with their new lives together. How long it will take to get to this step will depend on the animals involved, and you must work at their pace. Its not uncommon for dogs and cats to become friends and to enjoy each others company. Take the time to manage your cat-dog introduction properly, and you could be setting up a friendship that will last for the rest of your pets lives.

COMPLIMENTARY CHIROPRAC TIC EX AMINATION & CONSUL TATION FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 A7Best water ever New York Citys tap water is already widely regarded as world-class, in safety and taste (and subjected to a half-million tests a year by the citys Department of Environmental Protection). However, two entrepreneurs recently opened the Molecule water bar in the citys East Village, selling 16-ounce bottles of the same water for $2.50, extra-filtered through their $25,000 machine that applies UV rays, ozone treatment and reverse osmosisŽ in a seven-stage process to create what they call pure H2O.Ž The owners of Molecule are a restaurateur/art dealer and a social-justice activistŽ who is a former world champion boomerang player,Ž according to a July Wall Street Journal profile. Can’t possibly be true Q In 2011, the Liberty County, Texas, home of Joe Bankson and Gena Charlton was raided by sheriffs deputies, the FBI, state officials and a trailing media crew (alerted by the sheriff), checking out a tip that 25 to 30Ž chil-drens bodies were buried on the property. No evidence was found, and in a June 2012 lawsuit for defamation, Mr. Bankson and Ms. Charlton claim that the sheriff had organized the raid knowing full well that the tipster was a self-described prophetŽ who had disclosed that her information came from Jesus and the (32) angelsŽ who were present with her. The sheriff said he did everything by the bookŽ and that a judge signed the search war-rant confirming probable causeŽ to believe that at least one crime (if not 25 to 30) had been committed. Q In July, the online magazine Salon profiled Virtuous Pedophiles „ an effort by two notably articulate men who insist that their sexual fascination with children would never extend to personal contact. Said one (who claims advanced degrees from pres-tigious universitiesŽ): We do not choose to be attracted to children (but) we can resist the temptation to abuse children sexually.Ž He added, curiously, that manyŽ of the Virtuous Pedophiles present no danger to children whatsoever.Ž Lamented the groups co-founder, Almost any group in the world can hold a convention, look out on a sea of faces, and say, These are people like me,Ž but because pedophiles are treated with such scorn, we cant.Ž Democracy follies Q North Carolina state Rep. Becky Carney, an environmental activist, inadvertently cast the deciding vote in July to open up natural-gas hydraulic fracking in the state. The legislature had passed the bill earlier, but it was vetoed by Gov. Bev Perdue, and the House needed exactly 72 votes to over-ride the veto and enact the bill. Ms. Carneys tireless lobbying of colleagues appeared to have helped halt the overriders at 71 votes, but when it came time to push the buttons, Ms. Carney accidentally became the 72nd. She could be heard on her microphone in the chamber, saying, Oh my gosh. I pushed green.Ž Q Mark Schimel told reporters in Albany, N.Y., in May that it was nothing personal that caused him to run for the Republican nomination to the state assembly from Nas-sau County „ where the incumbent is his estranged wife, Democrat Michelle Schimel. Mr. Schimels mother seemed quite upset at her son. I cant believe hed do a thing like this (to Michelle),Ž she told a reporter. Im going to talk to him.Ž Q Democratic attorney Christopher Smith is the presumptive nominee for a Florida Senate seat from Fort Lauderdale, and it was just a coincidence, said Republican leader-ship in June, that their candidate is attorney Christopher Smithmyer. Registered Demo-crats dominate the district, but Mr. Smith-myer may win some votes by confusion. Q In March in Ireland, Bundoran Town Councilor Florence Doherty became exasper-ated with colleague Michael McMahon, who opposed a bill to strengthen whistleblowers rights. (T)his country doesnt need whistle-blowers,Ž Mr. McMahon said. Ms. Doherty replied, Of course it does, you asshole.Ž In a later radio interview, Ms. Doherty repeated her word-of-the-day four times. Q In a live TV debate in July, Mohammed Shawabka, a member of the Jordanian parlia-ment, became enraged when his opponent, Mansour Seif-Eddine Murad, called him a secret Israeli agent. Mr. Shawabka removed a shoe and hurled it at Mr. Murad, who ducked, but then Mr. Shawabka pulled a sil-ver pistol from his waistband and waved it around (though no shots were fired). Least-competent criminals Q James Allan, 28, was sentenced to three years in prison in Oxford, England, in July for robbing a news shop. Mr. Allans getaway was delayed when he insisted, repeatedly, on pushing the front door open when he obvi-ously should have been pulling. Finally, exas-perated, he yanked off his balaclava, exposing his face to the surveillance camera, kicked the door, breaking the glass, and escaped. Police arrested him about three hours later nearby. (The 2000 British movie SnatchŽ featured just such a memorable scene of push/pull helplessness.) Q When the assistant manager arrived early on June 26 to open up the Rent-A-Center in Brockton, Mass., he encountered a man with his head stuck underneath the heavy metal loading bay door (obviously as a result of a failed burglary attempt during the night). Hang tight!Ž the manager consoled the trapped man. The police are on their way.Ž Manuel Fernandes, 53, was arrested.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYman-made lighting storm. FPL engi-neers would be on site, inducing light-ning to test the integrity of their power line poles, transformers, insulators and surge arrestors. Reporters were told to wear closedtoed shoes to the companys Reliability Assurance Center in Riviera Beach. And though high-speed cameras were recommended, a press release was sure to warn, There is the unlikely poten-tial for camera damage as a result of the high-voltage situations,Ž for elec-tricity concocted in the lightning lab can reach up to 2.4 million volts. Oh, the sky was gray and the day was eager, but any anticipation the journal-ists may have had to move to the light-ning lab lair straightaway was soon to be squashed by an introductory slide show. One meteorological radar image cast the state in thunderstorm reds and yel-lows and purples, illuminating the strip from Tampa Bay to Titusville as Light-ning Alley.Ž The slide emblazoned Florida as the lightning capital of the nation. A note on the bottom of the page read, On average, there are more than 250,000 lightning strikes on FPL service territory every year.Ž Next slide, all numbers: FPL has 4.6 million customers, 16 power plants, four nuclear plants, 587 substations and distri-bution systems with 65,271 miles of line. Reporters were fervent for the lightning lab now, but first this FPL table of technical specialists, administra-tors and engineers had to say why the lab was here „ to know their enemy. These men fight lightning and its strikes are a given, so instead of pre-dicting the storm, they must predict the outage and buck up their equip-ment to withstand the surge. They must follow their infrastructure from power plant to neighborhood and extend the life of their arrestors, for their transmission lines will surely be hit and their arrestors must divert the over-voltage of electricity to the ground. These men must predict their failures, to prevent their failures. So they play with lightning, to stay ahead of their villain. People want their lights on and you better be there to keep them on,Ž sums up John Fischer, manager of the FPL center with the words Reli-ability AssuranceŽ in its name; he and his outage-balking brethren must be aggressive in their analysis, for they are accountable for service, each and every day. And they are accountable in the state of Florida, lightning capital of the U.S. and close to leading the world in light-ning strikes, as well, as Florida ranks second only to Rwanda, Africa. Product must perform better in Florida, so when manufactur-ers send electrical equip-ment to the FPL center, engineers run it through their accelerated aging chamber. Inevitably, well find something they didnt see,Ž manager Fischer says of such manufactur-ers, who living elsewhere, do not have to compete with sea level, salt contamination, moisture and heat. Driving through other states, Mr. Fisch-er cannot help but think, These guys got it easy, this would be a breeze,Ž but he and his colleagues must carry on down yonder in the swampland, work-ing more as problem solvers than some production assembly line. Im the pack dog leader of all these geeks,Ž says Mr. Fischer, speaking can-didly on what its like to work along-side all these techies who go toe-to-toe with lightning. I have to keep up with all their cross disciplines and their esoteric language to figure out what theyre telling me,Ž so when America watches football, he watches a physics class from ITT Tech or UC Berkeley. As versed as Mr. Fischer and his team are in practical application, they must also think in theory, ensuring equipment behaves the way its sup-posed to behave, says Manny Miranda, FPLs vice president of transmission and substation, who accompanies the media tour to translate any science-laden jargon into something more user-friendly. Sometimes our story isnt shown. Its something thats kind of tucked away sometimes,Ž says Mr. Miranda, giving his reason as to why FPL has invited the media to its lightning lab now, when the lab has been operating for 25 years. We want to show our story, so our community can see the value of our each and every day.Ž Coincidentally, perhaps, this lets get personable tour happens to coincide with the electric companys proposed $690 million rate hike. Regulators have scheduled hearings on the request, starting Aug. 20, with a vote expected in November. Mr. Miranda says lightning lab costs are part of FPLs total transmission expenses, using less than 1 percent of the $70 million budget to operate the lab. But before reporters can see the lightning lab, they are corralled through the physics lab, the protection and control lab, the high-current lab, a couple hours of science and forensics before they are finally ushered down the corridor, through the outdoor walk-way to the high-bay venue for the light-ning show. Well show you where the fire extinguishers and exit doors are in case any-thing goes wrong, which it wont,Ž says manger Fischer in his science-savvy humor. An FPL director adds, Its like Disney, let us know of any medical condi-tions before you get on the ride.Ž The doors open and the lab does appear all X-Men-lair-like with Jetso-nian-looking Space-Needle appara-tuses. The media huddles up and the lights go off. The sound of swarming mosquitos permeates the darkness. Senior engineer Hugh Feeney turns a dial up to 100,000 volts. The mosquito-sound starts cackling, more like static on the radio, but static on the radio on steroids. Dial up to 200,000 volts. Black-light-like purple sparks snap along a power line, like the embers that flicker from the coals before a firewalker. Up to 350,000 volts and the sparks dance. Up to 420,000 volts and Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, man-made lightning strikes, breaking down the air gap around an insulator. Engineer Feeney remotely attaches an arrestor and repeats the test. Noth-ing to see now, which is what the engineers want, for no flash means no failure. Director of engineering and technical services Ron Critelli reiterates, FPL runs these tests to predict failures, roll out the crews, reinforce infrastructure and prevent outages, costing custom-ers less. But he cannot say how many disruptions or interruptions of service FPL has been able to prevent. Its easy to track what you had, but how do you prove you didnt actually have an event?Ž Director Critelli asks. Its like a home security system. How do you know how many times a burglar saw your system and turned around?Ž Mr. Miranda tries to lend some perspective. Even though Florida faces an average of 250,000 lightning strikes each year, we only average 15 to 20 momentaries or power outages each year on our high-voltage transmission lines.Ž So how do these men who wear the FPL lightning-burst logo on their polo shirts feel when they open up their electric bill? Well, I can tell you what my wife thinks,Ž says engineer Feeney. She loves it when she opens the bill because she hates it when she has no power.Ž Manager Fischer agrees. He sticks to the science and leaves his wife with the bills, for she knows what shes pay-ing for when her phone rings in the middle of the night and her lights go on because somewhere, somebody elses lights went off. Q LIGHTNINGFrom page 1 FPL Reliability Assurance Center Manager John Fischer says his data shows 17 lightning strikes within the company’s service area in January ver-sus 33,549 lightning strikes in July, the peak of lightning season.

A buzzing hive of high pressure from which emerged five little words that have fueled the spirit of the Space Coast for decades, We are go for launch.Ž But few, even among Space Coast residents, have ever actually set foot inside NASAs Launch Control Center „ until now. For years, visitors to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex have been able to witness a mock launch sequence inside a simulated firing room at the Apollo/Saturn V Center, part of the Kennedy Space Center tour, but this is the first time in more than 30 years that the public has been invited inside the real thing, the same place where NASA directors and engineers supervised all of the 152 launches for the space shuttle and Apollo programs. While no one along the Space Coast would have wished for a hiatus in manned space flight, this break in activ-ity is precisely what has enabled visi-tors to see for themselves several areas that were, and will soon be, off limits. This is another very rare opportunity that NASA has worked with us to provide … access to the Launch Control Center,Ž said Bill Moore, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. It might be another 30 years before guests will receive a behind-the-scenes opportunity like this again.Ž The KSC Up-Close: Launch Control Center (LCC) Tour, the second in Ken-nedy Space Centers special 50th anni-versary series of rare-access tours, takes visitors inside Firing Room 4, one of the LCCs four firing rooms and the one from which all 21 space shuttle launches since 2006 were controlled. Inside Firing Room 4, visitors will pass by the computer consoles at which engineers monitored the computerized launch control systems thousands of system checks every minute leading up to launch. Theyll also see the main launch countdown clock and many large video monitors on the walls, and enter the Bubble Room,Ž with its wall of interior windows through which the Kennedy Space Center management team viewed the proceedings below. According to Visitor Complex spokesperson Andrea Farmer, visitors can even stop and snap photos at the launch directors station and imagine for just a moment that they are the one calling the shotsƒ and see if they have what it takes make the final call on whether a launch was a GoŽ or No go.Ž The stressful, frenetic launch scenes portrayed in the movies were not just Hollywood effects, said Bob Sieck, for-mer launch director, Kennedy Space Center. With so much on the line, the people who worked in this room were under tremendous pressure not only in daily operations but particularly as the countdown proceeded,Ž he recalled. They had to handle the tension and their emotions as the tests became fast-er, the astronauts took their place in the shuttle and thousands of people and news media were gathered outside to watch the launch.Ž Ms. Farmer elaborated, Each person thats sitting in launch control could represent hundreds, if not thousands, of the workers on the program. It all comes down to these few people inside launch control making the decisions based on information theyre seeing via monitors.Ž While the launch control center is vacant of NASA personnel, adrenaline still lingers in the air, she said. Its exciting to be in the place where dedi-cated people worked through techni-cal and other challenges to launch the space shuttle. It is the hub of informa-tion where critical decisions are made before sending humans and cargo into space.Ž The LCC Tour will run through the end of 2012 with a limited number of daily tours. Last November, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex began offering another behind-the-scenes tour which takes visitors inside the 525-foot-tall Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), the massive building adjacent to the LCC where the Apollo Saturn V rock-ets and space shuttles were assem-bled.

Consumer Reports ratings focus on six categories regarding patient safety in hospitals: infections, readmissions, communication, CT scanning, complications and mortality, the hospital reports in a prepared statement. The patient safety score combines six categories of hospital safety into a score between one and 100. Displayed scores are rounded, but hospitals are listed in order of their precise score. Readers are directed to look for large differences between hospitals; as the report says that small differences are not meaningful. The report also show a hospitals rating in four of those catego-ries: infections, readmissions, commu-nication and scanning. St. Marys Medi-cal Center scored the highest rating possible in the areas of both preventing infections and scanning. St. Marys Medical Center has been focused on these patient safety mea-sures to ensure our patients receive exceptional, professional care,Ž Davide Carbone, chief executive officer of St. Marys Medical Center, said in the state-ment. Over the past five years, the hospital has significantly reduced hos-pital acquired infection rates achieved through standardized processes that have been shown to decrease infections and improve patient outcomes.Ž Mr. Carbone added, Our nurses and physicians work together to ensure each patient is treated using these care protocols. St. Marys Medical Center cares for some of the most critical patient in Palm Beach County in our comprehensive stroke, trauma, neona-tal and pediatric intensive care units.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 NEWS A11 HEALTHY LIVINGWhat to do when you feel threatened by your child’s in-laws linda Marla Smith truly wished she could be excited for her daughter Lisa. But it took every last bit of restraint to show enthusiasm as Lisa went on and on about the lavish vacation shed just taken with her in-laws. Marla knew she should be happy that the Rockwells were so generous to Lisa, but frankly, she was sick and tired of hearing about the parties at the Rockwells country club and all the wonderful things Evelyn Rockwell had bought for Lisa. Marla and her husband, Tom, were initially quite taken with the Rockwells and impressed that Lisa was marrying into such an influential family. It never occurred to them that there could be any negative repercussions. But as time passed, Marla found herself resenting the amount of time Lisa was spending with those people.Ž The Rockwells were certainly nice enough to Marla and Tom, but she couldnt stop herself from believing that Evelyn had an air of superiority. But as time passed, Tom too, was becoming uncomfortable by the way the Rockwells insinuated themselves into every aspect of the young couples lives. As parents, most of us invest a tremendous amount of emotional energy into the bonds we have with our children. From the time they are little, a huge part of our daily attention focuses on their well-being and whereabouts. When they mature, we hope and pray they will be happy and successful at work and fall head over heels in love with a fabulous, grounded person with whom they are truly compatible. And of course, we also hope that WE like their life choice and this person will comfortably join with our family. When our children marry, they are joining their life with another person who comes from a family with its own set of values, traditions and lifestyle. Mature, loving parents recognize that they must make a key adjustment to allow their child to comfortably inte-grate into their new extended family. Most families understand the impor-tance of this and are able to make this transition over time. They reach out to the other family with warmth, even if they know they are very different and would never, on their own, have picked each other out as friends. In some instances, the sense of family importance is so strong that people are unable or unwilling to compromise their unity to be receptive to a completely dif-ferent set of values and opinions. On occasion, a person absolutely CANNOT stand the family their child marries into. As much as they try to get along with these people, their stomach churns and the effort to be pleasant is enormous. Sometimes, the other family is pleasant enough; its just that it seems these people are insinuating themselves in the young couples lives in ways that can seem overbearing and unfair. To consider the possibility that your child could enjoy being with these peo-ple more than they like being with you can be way too much to bear! The feel-ings of hurt and betrayal can be raw. I do get it. But I must also make a blunt statement: If you wish to maintain family harmony, you will need to find a way to interact with these people, on occasion, and at least superficially, as long as your children are married to each other. In this case, Marla and Tom should examine their own feelings to determine if they are projecting their own discom-fort and insecurities onto the Rockwells, possibly attributing negative attributes that are not quite accurate or fair. If after careful reflection, they still believe that the Rockwells are overbearing and dif-ficult, they must proceed with caution. The worst thing they can do is put Lisa on the defensive, resulting in the young couple feeling caught in the middle of an ugly triangle, believing that they are being asked to take sides. They should be careful not to say ANYTHING negative about the Rock-wells (no matter how tempting.) They should assume that whatever they say negatively about this family to Lisa will be repeated at some point to her hus-band (It invariably works out that way!) I can assure you this will not endear them to their son-in-law. It is likely he will remember their words, and possibly, hold it against the Smiths for years to come. Focusing on maintaining their unique bond with Lisa can be the roadmap guid-ing them as they proceed. They clearly have had a good relationship with Lisa thus far and do not want to risk alienat-ing their daughter and son-in-law. They may be making erroneous assumptions about Lisas feelings and loyalties, and may in fact be unaware that their daugh-ter could be struggling with pressures and guilt about the position she has been put in. If they put their own discomfort aside, and try to put themselves in Lisas shoes, they may, in fact, open up heartfelt sharing with their daughter. They should remember that most of us have room in our hearts to include new relationships, without compromising our existing ties. They should make it clear that they recognize the importance of Lisa main-taining a good relationship with the Rockwells. The goal is to create a climate where there can be an open discussion of important issues, without animosity. Lastly, the Smiths should take steps to remove themselves from a competitive stance with the Rockwells. The reality is the two families are in very different financial circumstances. With creativity and non-defensiveness, the Smiths can create opportunities and experiences to enjoy with their children that will be uniquely theirs.

Employees, patients and visitors to the hospital all rely upon Sister Mary for spiritual counsel and advice, the hospi-tal notes in a prepared statement. Sister Marys career began in teaching, which has spanned more than 30 years. Through the years, Sister Mary transi-tioned from teacher to principal at the Immaculate Con-ception Preparatory School in Kingston, Jamaica. In addition to her responsibili-ties as principal, she worked in the Kingston community with the Missionary of the Poor organization. After 25 years in Jamaica, she moved to Miami where she continued her work at Camillus House.

UNDER CONTRACT OVER 5 MILLION UNDER CONTRACT SINCE APRIL 2012 Too New for Photo Investors diversified portfolios of worries include: the potential demise of the Euro; EUs sovereign debt problems; Chinas slowing growth; and a U.S. fiscal cliff. Though silent as to its debt prob-lems, Japan has potential to become an investment nightmare. Japan has more government debt as a percent of GDP than any developed country and Japan has more total debt as a percent of GDP than any developed country. (Total DebtŽ is defined as the sum of: households, non-financial corpo-rations, financial corporations and Japa-nese government debt or JGB.Ž) So, if Japan is really in bad straits far beyond the problem of more lostŽ economic years, why isnt it the topic of conversation? There are two reasons. First, as part of its culture, its problems are not discussed in a public forum; they are kept internal-ly (e.g., post tsunami, critical help from international, nuclear power experts was initially declined.) But going publicŽ on the problem are several U.S. funds (later mentioned) that could make a windfall if JGB prices crash and/or the yen falls. Second, Japan might have reached the tipping point in funding its debt expan-sion. Japanese pension and insurance funds, which have historically been the biggest buyers of JGBs, now face demo-graphic reality that Japans retiring work force will cause net liquidations of JGB investment positions as opposed to prior years net funding/ additions to JGB investment holdings. Japans problems are long in the making. In the 1980s, Japan was heralded as the industrial whiz kid taking over the world. During the decade ending 1990, GDP growth averaged 3.95 percent and Japanese real estate boomed and equities bubbled. With that euphoric expansion, corporate, financial and household debt surged from 197 percent of GDP to 328 percent. (McKinsey & Company, Janu-ary 2012, Debt and deleveraging: Uneven progress on the path to growthŽ.) Though real estate and equities burst in 1990, GDP growth collapsed from prior lofty levels; for the decades ended 2000 and 2010, GDP grew, respectively, 1.2 percent and 0.75 percent. Stock mar-ket rebounds had no stickŽ and the banks remained riddled with private sector bad loans. Despite these problems and non-growth begging for structural changes, political inability or cultural denials allowed few changes. In lieu of a bona fide solution, government responded with stimulus financed by JGB issuance; alas, nothing stimu-lated. (Sound familiar?) Japans govern-ment debt as a percent of GDP grew from 59 percent in 1990 to 226 percent by second quarter 2011; Total Debt to GDP grew from 387 percent to 512 percent. (McKinsey & Company) So how can Japans ratio of government debt to GDP (a barometer of sol-vency) be several times greater than many EU debt challenged countries and JGBs still be issued? How can the yield on 10-year JGBs be 2 percent or lower since 1997? Unlike U.S. Treasuries, which are approximately 40 percent foreign fund-ed, JGBs are 90 percent financed inter-nally with the two largest owners and netŽ buyers being: Japanese banks ($5 trillion) and Japanese insurance/pension funds ($4.5 trillion). Japan now faces a demographic tipping point as, ƒ baby boomers born in the wake of World War II are beginning to reach 65 and eligible for pensions. Thats putting ƒ the Japa-nese Government Pension Investment Fund under pressure to sell JGBs so it can cover the increase in payouts.Ž (, July 25, 2012) Though amongst others playing the demise of Japan, two professional money managers have fashioned strategies that could make a bundle if JGB prices pre-cipitously fall (yields rise) and/or the yen falls from its safe haven valuation. Kyle Bass, a famed hedge fund manager, and Tres Knippa, a well-known com-modity trading adviser and CNBC guest, believe that Japan is the next big short,Ž but timing of demise is subject to vaga-ries of central bank manipulations. Bass requires a very large minimum and has so far experienced high costs to carry the position ( Knippa allows much smaller mini-mums and uses an option strategy which attempts to self-fund a large volume of puts skewed toward a full-fledged Japa-nese crisis. There is no reason to think 23 years of Japans fruitless government spending will suddenly be reversed or retirees will forego their pensions. Even if the Japa-nese central bank prints yen and replac-es loss of pension funding of the JGB, the magnitude of yen printing would mean depreciation in the value of the Yen and a rise in yields. The manager websites and the McKinsey report are excellent reads. Seek counsel of multiple advisers, especially those in areas of specialization, as to the suitability of the aforementioned.

A20 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYhematoma, along with a cerebral edema and blood vessel rupture along the left optic nerve. This injury was most likely caused by a boat collision due to the force needed to break these bones. This blunt force trauma resulted in intracranial bleeding which was the ultimate cause of death. Betsys nest chamber was being monitored by LMC researchers during daily surveys, and on July 21, a research biolo-gist noticed hatchling tracks coming from the nest. Researchers returned three days later to excavate the nest to determine the hatching success. Typically, Loggerhead nests average 100 eggs with a hatch rate of about 80 percent. Twelve of the eggs had hatched and 11 of the hatchlings were making their way to the ocean. The staff brought back a sample size of 10 unhatched eggs for Dr. Charlie Manire, LMC director of research and rehabilitation, to examine. There was no evidence of development, said Dr. Manire. It was unclear as to the cause of the undeveloped eggs. This was the first documented time in the history of LMC that the center has successfully collected eggs from a deceased turtle and the eggs have hatched. It is always sad to have a sea turtle die, but good to see something posi-tive come from such a tragedy,Ž said Dr. Mettee. Along with the emergence of the hatchlings, the necropsy provided a wealth of information on nesting female loggerheads. Full tissue samples were taken and will be added to the growing database of sea turtle information. Loggerhead is a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of Floridas coastal ecosystems through public education, research and reha-bilitation with a focus on threatened and endangered sea turtles.

Q BETSYFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTO LMC research biologist Christy Owens excavates sea turtle eggs that came from Betsy, the deceased loggerhead.Pet odors, cluttered home are no-no’s when you’re trying to sell heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF Last month I received an offer on one of the properties that I had listed. It was the first offer in more than five months on this particular listing and it was a very good offer „ in fact the closing is sup-posed to take place next week. When I first listed the property, the owner (who also happens to be a rela-tive) had expectations of selling it within the first 30 days. I felt this was realistic given the fact that the neighborhood is very desirable, it was a fairly new home and the design of the home would appeal to most buyers. The home has four bed-rooms and four and a half bathrooms with just under 4,000 square feet of living space. The outdoor area is like a resort; very large pool, water fountains, beautiful landscaping and outdoor sum-mer kitchen. It was my relatives second home. She lived in it full time when it was first built, but has since moved up North perma-nently within the last month. When the home hit the market last year, I had several calls wanting to see the property. My relative was still liv-ing there with two large dogs and a cat. The home was decorated nicely, but her recent lifestyle change left her with some additional furnishings that did not match her dcor. The home was deco-rated in soft color palates with very clean lines. The additional pieces were very heavy and somewhat outdated, which covered up the cleanliness of the home and clashed with the other dcor. The very first showing that I had, the family walked in and out of the home in less than five minutes. They never even went outside to see how beautiful the outdoor area was. Later that evening I received feedback from their agent. He said their son had a severe animal allergy and they felt it would take too much renovation to remove the pet odor and dander from the home. I understood their concerns and talked to my relative about this. She was not pleased, but was very aware that the home had a strong pet odor. She worked during the day and allowed the pets to roam the house. Unfortunately, they were not trained as much as she liked and she would come home to some unwanted presentsŽ most of the time. I encouraged her to replace the carpets so the home was fresh and felt that would get rid of most of the odor. She did not want to do it at the time and felt that the new owner would replace the carpet with their own dcor style. My next showing was the very next day. The family spent quite a bit of time in the home and the showing went well. They had been looking in the neighbor-hood for the past six months and liked the design of my relatives home and the location. They came back for a second showing the same day. They were ready to purchase. Again, there was no offer and this family could not see past all of the clutterŽ in the home. They did not want to reno-vate or update the home and couldnt seem to visualize what the home would look like without all the additional fur-nishings. They ended up purchasing the same model with an inferior location down the street. These two scenarios seemed to take place each time I had a showing. And each of the respective showings were very strong. Again, I suggested that she replace the carpets and move some of the furnishings into storage so the home showed as it was originally decorated „without the unpleasant odor. My relative was in and out of town at this point and did not want to be bothered. She believed that the right person would come along and be able to see beyond those issues. After four months and several showings, my relative was getting settled in up North and I convinced her to do what I had suggested since she was not visit-ing as much as she thought. She agreed and I coordinated for the carpets to be replaced, the home to be repainted on the inside and for the furnishings to be moved to storage. Immediately following the changes, I did a mini marketing campaign to the surrounding neighborhoods and also advertised through my email marketing. Three clients who had previously been through the home called to come for a second showing. It took one week after the small changes for the home to go under contract at a very good price! It was very important for buyers to visualize what the home looked like with their own furnishings and freshly updated offering the move inŽ condition that they were looking for. You dont have to move out all your furnishings, replace carpet, do renova-tions and get rid of your beloved pets prior to selling. What I am suggesting is when it comes to selling your home, always put your best foot forward, and look at the home from a buyers perspec-tive. De-clutter the space, freshen up any areas that are worn and neutralize the home so it appeals to most buyers. Most importantly, make sure it is clean and tidy prior to each showing as possible. This will always bring you a higher price and a more confident buyer throughout the closing process. It may be a small expense up front, but I guarantee that you will sell your property in less time at a higher price.

CLOSED FOR VACATION REOPENING LATE SEPTEMBER NEW LOCATION Come visit us in late September Emphasizing children and religion OPENING SOON! A24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY I recently had dinner with a journalist friend, a man I hadnt seen in several years, someone I knew more or less in a professional context, who I mostly mingled with at group events, who I often saw dressed in wool sweaters and corduroy pants. He always struck me as reserved, thoughtful and just this side of shy. A sort of Clark Kent en permanence. What a surprise, then, when my friend walked through the door of the trendy restaurant he had suggested in a T-shirt and tight jeans, looking relaxed and cool and „ dare I say it? „ sexy. So sexy, in fact, that I spent the night blushing and stammering, a flustered version of my usually collected self. Over dinner, he asked me about my life in the time since Id last seen him, and he seemed to genuinely listen to my answers. He asked about the book Im writing, and not just generalities but specifics: plot points and character arcs and the misgivings I have about certain story lines. He nodded through all of it, his gaze fixed on mine as I spoke, and I found myself answering his questions in great depth as I peeled away my protec-tive layers. I normally consider myself a reserved person, and even when I am desperate to reveal information about myself, I cant seem to help but hold back. And, yet, there I was, telling this man intimate details about my life. Someone once told me that the human condition tends toward confession. We all want, deep down, to expose our-selves. All it takes is good questions and careful listening to convince a person to lay his or her secrets on the table. Like my friend, Im also trained as a journalist, and I know this to be true. Ive listened to people confess excru-ciatingly personal information then sit back and shake their heads, as if theyd been in a daze. Why am I telling you all this?Ž they say. So you can imagine my consternation when I found myself leaning against the booth in the trendy restaurant, my dinner barely touched, and asking my friend, Why am I telling you this?Ž Jonathan Franzen has an apt scene in The CorrectionsŽ where two women who meet on a cruise ship spend the evening together while their husbands are off napping or playing blackjack. The women, Enid and Sylvia, consume too many fruit-flavored cocktails and wind up swapping overly personal details about their lives. The sense of intimacy lasts as long as the buzz, and by the next morning the women are embarrassed in each others company: Enid and Sylvia resumed relations stiffly, their emotional muscles pulled and aching from last nights overuse.Ž On the first day after the date with my friend, I found myself still flustered, still confused why even thinking about the previous evening made my heart race. All that sharing had seemed thrilling and titillating and somehow very dangerous. By the second day, though, I began to feel less excited and more exposed, as if my own emotional muscles had been overworked. By the third day, I realized my mistake. Id been caught up in the heady seductive-ness of over-sharing, and suddenly I felt like Id spent the evening in my under-wear. Q p y artis SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSStripping down over dinner

You lose two spades and a diamond, but you dont lose a trump trick because you finesse against Easts queen. If you dont see the East-West cards, however, your task is much more difficult. With nine cards in the suit, you might decide to play the A-K of trumps and so go down one. How do you resolve troublesome problems of this sort? Well, the fact is that youre not expected to guess the location of a missing queen all the time „ just most of the time. In the actual case, declarer had no trouble making the contract. West led the king of spades, over-taken by East with the ace. East returned the jack to Wests queen, and West continued with the ten of spades, ruffed by declarer after East discarded a club. Instead of tackling trumps immediately, which seems the natural thing to do, South embarked on a method of play that he hoped would shed more light on the location of the missing queen. He cashed the A-K-Q of clubs and A-K of diamonds, then exited with a diamond, won by East with the queen. At this point, declarer had accumulated all the information he needed to solve the trump problem. West had shown up with six spades, three dia-monds and three clubs, and therefore could not have started with more than one trump. So when East returned a club at trick ten, South ruffed it in dummy, cashed the king of trumps and then finessed the jack with 100 percent assurance that it would win the trick. Q


A26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYExperts from Brown Distributing will be on hand to provide insight and pour samples from such breweries as PALM, Tequesta Brewing, Merchant Du Vin, Cigar City, Blue Point Brewing, Innis & Gunn, Cisco Brewing, Kromebacher, Shipyard, Stone, Terrapin, Cisco, Monk in the Trunk and Oskar Blues, among others. Not a drinker? Designated driver tickets can be purchased for $12. Mr. Bauer has had experience with festivals and tastings such as this. I actually was in Ashville, N.C., before I came here. Ashville, along with Portland, Ore., was named a beer city. For a town of only 70,000 people its really big in the craft beers,Ž he says. Ashville and its mountain setting lend themselves very nicely to beer festi-vals. While there, I went to the beer festivals. We created our own festival,Ž he says. Roger Dean also lends itself very well to a festival, but instead of a festi-val, Mr. Bauer says he wanted Baseball & Brews to be more of a tasting. Were going to have 25 stations and each station will have two or three beers at it,Ž he says. At a wine tasting, everyone generally gets a small goblet. It will be like that here.When you walk in, everybody will get a 4-ounce tasting mug. You can go station to station and try all the differ-ent beers that you like,Ž he says. So whats Mr. Bauers favorite brew?For just an everyday beer, Bud Light. I havent really found a beer that I havent liked,Ž he says. Bud Light is fine, but what about other brews? I like the SweetWater 420 blends,Ž he says. And to soak up the beer?Its that aforementioned Italian sausage. It goes well with a microbrew. Its a St. Louis-style Italian sausage, and it sells extremely well here,Ž Mr. Bauer says. Raise a glass to that. Q BEERFrom page 23Budding Bergmans aside, the festival concept is not new „ its a tradition that started eight years ago in Fresno, Calif., and was picked up in the Tampa Bay area. Theres a lot of creativity and its a real quirky kind of event,Ž Ms. Forino said. The movies are only 3 minutes long and theyre taken after Holly-wood blockbusters.Ž The evening is as much about laughter as it is about film. Jesse Furman and Frank Licari of the Jove Comedy Expe-rience will emcee the event, which includes two dozen or so films that will be screened in the auditorium, plus extras that will screen in the Borland Center lobby. Were really excited. Its something new for Palm Beach Gardens. Its a little bit off-center,Ž Ms. Forino said. Its really clean. Its PG-13.Ž Thats important, given the ages of some of the creative talent. There are a lot of student entries. The under 18s come from Palm Beach, Martin, Broward and Miami-Dade coun-ties,Ž she said. The festival is divided into six acts, each 12 to 15 minutes long, she said. Look for contributions from Digital Domain as well as members of Swede Fest Palm Beach. And dont miss the special version of Footloose,Ž created in Ms. Forinos office. Ram Realty Services did submit an entry,Ž Ms. Forino said. We have a Kevin Bacon lookalike though we had to make him up a little bit to get the effect.Ž The staff stuck to the formula. We basically told the story in three minutes,Ž Ms. Forino said. Its a character-building exercise for co-workers. Its a really good thing to do in the office. Its really good teambuilding. Making a film, doing anything relative is hard work. Its monotonous, then youve got to edit it,Ž she said. Theres just a lot of detail that nobody ever thinks about.Ž Still, the personalities shine.Character comes through. Bossy people become really bossy,Ž she said. And what about the star?He thinks hes going to Hollywood, by the way,Ž Ms. Forino said. Hes got his autograph distributed throughout the office.Ž Q SWEDEFrom page 23 >>What: Baseball & Brews, game between the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Charlotte Stone Crabs and beer tasting>>When: 5:30 p.m. Aug. 4 >>Where: Roger Dean Stadium, 4157 Main St., Abacoa, Jupiter.>>Cost: $20 in advance, $25 at the gate.

WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8, 2012 A27 Often when restoring a historic church or school, a large bronze bell is needed for the bell tower. The bells are dif-ficult to find because many have been sold as scrap and melted, and others are too heavy to be moved for a reasonable price. But a vintage bell often is less expensive than a new one. A bronze bell that sold a few years ago had the name Vanduzen and TiftŽ molded into the metal. It identifies a Cincinnati maker, a partnership founded in 1837. The part-ners made top-quality bells during the 19th century. The bell that sold also was molded with a date, which was worn but appeared to be 1864. A four-digit number on a cast-bronze bell indicates the year of the casting. The mold for a cast bell can be used only once. The mold is broken to get the bell out after it cools. If a small bell is marked with a date, it probably is a design patent, because the mold can be reused. Vintage bells of all sizes often need to be cleaned or restored. A cast-bronze bell should not be painted. Once its cleaned, it should be left to develop its natural patina. Q: I have a Windsor chair that my parents bought in the early 1930s. It is 44 inches high and has a fan back with nine straight spindles and two brace spindles. The chair is black with gilt striping. On the bottom there is a metal medallion that reads The Simonds Furniture Co., Syracuse.Ž Can you tell me more about my chair? A: Elgin A. Simonds was a business partner of Gustav Stickley in the late 1890s in Syracuse. In 1898 Stickley bought out Simonds, who then bought the Hayden & Couch Chair Manufac-turing Co. of Roches-ter, N.Y., and formed the Brown & Simonds Co. That company was renamed the Elgin A. Simonds Co. in 1901 and became part of a consortium of furni-ture manufacturers. The Simonds company made faithful reproduc-tions of traditional fur-niture. Windsor chairs made by Simonds sell for $100 to $350. Q: The white sailboats on my cobalt-blue tumblers are discolored. Is there any way I can clean them without losing the sailboats? I also have some tumblers with white wind-mills that have the same problem. A: Your tumblers are part of the Sportsman Series, made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Co. in the 1940s. Designs fea-tured sailboats, golf, hunting, angelfish and windmills. The pattern was made in amethyst, cobalt blue and clear glass, with fired-on decorations. The sailboats and windmills are being removed by the very hot water and detergents used in a dishwasher. Wash the tumblers by hand. Q: I have an old Cuff n Collar Maker with original patterns and attachments. It was made by Wheeler & Wilson of Bridgeport, Conn., and lists patent dates in 1850, 1851, 1852 and 1865. It is not a regular sewing machine. No one I talk to knows what it is. A: Wheeler, Wilson & Co. was founded by Allen B. Wilson and Nathaniel Wheeler in Watertown, Mass., in about 1851. Wilson was a cabinetmaker who patented his first sew-ing machine in 1850. The company became Wheeler & Wilson Man-ufacturing Co. in 1853 and moved to Bridge-port in 1856. At one point, it was the largest manufacturer of sewing machines in the world. The detachable collar was invented in 1827, and detach-able cuffs in about 1845. Wheeler & Wil-son designed a sewing machine to make collars and cuffs as well as shirts, and claimed that an operator could make 80 to 100 dozen collarsŽ in a day by using its machines instead of sewing the collars by hand. The company also made several other special sewing machines, includ-ing machines for buttonholes, corsets and boots. Wheeler & Wilson was taken over by Singer Corp. in 1905, but sewing machines under the Wheeler & Wilson name continued to be made until 1913. Q: I have an autographed photo of Satchel Paige in a baseball uniform. What is its value? A: Leroy Robert SatchelŽ Paige (19061982) was a professional pitcher who played for many different teams during his long career. A black player, he had to pitch in the Negro leagues before the major leagues were integrated. In 1948 Paige debuted in the majors with the Cleveland Indians at the age of 42, making him both the oldest player ever to debut in MLB and the seventh to inte-grate it. Paige pitched for the Indians, St. Louis Browns and Kansas City Athlet-ics before ending his career in 1966. In 1971 Paige became the first player to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame as a Negro leagues player. An autographed photo of Paige in his Browns uniform recently sold for $253 at auction. Tip: Do not put an alabaster figure or vase outside. Alabaster is softer than marble and will eventually fall apart if exposed to rain.

Use some of it to resist intimidation from those who might try to impose on your good nature for their own reasons. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The good news is that your on-the-job status is improving. The one cautionary note, however, involves a personal situation you might have been ignoring for too long. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Congratulations. Once again, your sharp Sagittarian horse senseŽ helps you work through a complicated situation that would leave most people confused.

NoAfter four cracks at it, the Step UpŽ fran-chise remains incapable of a telling a story that doesnt make you angry at its stupidity. Appar-ently its too much to ask professional filmmak-ers to remember that true quality starts with a script, not a choreog-rapher. But then, all the Step UpŽ movies have ever cared about is fun dance sequences, so why would Step Up Revolu-tionŽ be any different? Heres a good reason why it should care: Even though the dance sequences are cool and inspired in Revolution,Ž they are no better and no more impressive than what weve already seen. If director Scott Speer cant top whats come before, and the 3D adds little, theres no reason to pay money to see this. In beautiful Miami, a dance group that calls itself The MobŽ interrupts otherwise tranquil daily activities in order to shame-lessly draw attention to itself. The Mobs goal is to win $100,000 from YouTube for being the first channel to reach 10 million hits. The group is led by Sean (Ryan Guzman) and features computer hacker/co-founder Eddy (Misha Gabriel), DJ Penelope (Cleopatra Coleman), mute street artist Mercury (Michael Langebeck) and more rebellious artist types. Youre not supposed to ask how The Mob can afford its extrava-gant costumes, makeup, paint and lighting setups, so be sure to overlook that gaping logistical flaw. Meanwhile, aspiring ballet dancer Emily (Kathryn McCormick) is in town with her rich business developer daddy (Peter Gal-lagher), and wouldnt you know it daddy is planning to tear down The Mobs home neighborhood along the Miami River. Emily and Sean start to date (which is expected, and because theyre two pretty people who are fun to watch dance, we dont mind). In fact, we dont mind much of the first two-thirds of the movie, largely because the dance sequences are amusing and the story, while predictable, is not yet insultingly bad. No, its not until the third act that things really derail, starting with Eddy doing something out of impulsive jealousy and ending with a ridiculously far-fetched and all too convenient finale. This is especially a shame considering this couldve been the first Step UpŽ to actu-ally be a decent movie on its own terms, but alas it was not meant to be. The dance sequences are entertaining, though. The opener along Ocean Drive is a high-octane trip (as a 10-year resident of Miami, how-ever, I couldnt help but think that in reality, locals would be pissed off about the traffic, not jamming along as seen on screen). Other sequences, including those in an art museum and in a converted out-door parking garage for a formal reception, are creative and nicely shot. A word on the acting, which you expect to be poor because the filmmakers cast people who are dancers first and actors sec-ond: poor. Were talking a half-step above soap opera poor, to the point that you cant help but tune out the unemotional line readings and desperate attempts at look-ing sad/frustrated/angry and just go with it. Granted, acting isnt easy, but this isnt Shakespeare. When the two leads, Guzman and McCormick, are so raw in terms of act-ing ability, everything else suffers. Step Up RevolutionŽ is aimed at a hip younger crowd that loves to dance and be free. For that audience, what they get might suffice. Others will wonder why the noise is so loud. Q The Dark Knight Rises ++++ (Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway) After eight years of exile, Bruce Wayne/Batman (Bale) helps Gotham fight off a mon-ster named Bane (Hardy) whos hell bent on destroying the city. The action, directing, story and music are all top notch, and its the fitting, perfect conclusion to (probably) the greatest trilogy ever made. Rated PG-13. Beasts of the Southern Wild ++ (Quvenzhan Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easterly) With Hurricane Katrina about to hit her Delta home and her father (Henry) in poor health, young Hushpuppy (Wallis) strives to find her long lost mother. Its a poetic, powerful film, but also one thats hard to enjoy. Some of the decisions made by adults are questionable at best and stupid at worst. Still, you always feel for the little girl. Rated PG-13. Ice Age: Continental Drift ++ (Voices of Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo) Mammoth Manny (Romano) is separated from his fam-ily when the continents begin to take shape and must find his way home along with sloth Sid (Leguizamo) and saber-toothed tiger Diego (Leary), battling sea creatures and a fierce pirate (Peter Dinklage) along the way. It has some amusing moments and is enjoyable, but weve seen better animated fare this summer (Madagascar 3Ž) and the 3D is nothing special. Rated PG. Q CAPSULES LATEST FILMS‘Step Up Revolution’ t d w N r s dan >> The nale — in which groundbreaking is about to begin on the new development — was shot on Watson Island in Biscayne Bay, nowhere near the Miami River.

Lunch, at the Dockside Dollar Grille in Lake Park. A plate of rice and beans, or pasta primavera, or an herbed chick-en thigh. Another buck will buy a salad or glass of chardonnay to go with it. Clearly, the restaurateur is shooting for a budget-seeking crowd. Its because of the economy,Ž said Elizabeth Turner, who with spouse and partner Randall Turner recently opened the lunch-buffet only eatery. It shares seating with the already value-priced Dockside Grille that overlooks a small lake. There are lots of dollar stores out there that are doing very well,Ž she said. Everyone wants a bargain, so we thought „ why not a dollar menu?Ž The Turners have worked on the plan for the unique menu about a year, with details such as portions and fluctuating food costs part of the puzzle. I think you can offer a reasonable menu and still make money,Ž Mr. Turn-er said in an interview six months ago. You can barely get a fast-food burger for $1; and were going to serve restau-rant food. Well have a few items that might cost a little more, but there will be enough items I think will fill out the menu and still offer value and variety. Its a matter of portion control, and not going crazy with the menu. Well have a few items that rotate each day, but there will be the staples that are always available.Ž A buffet line means fewer staffers are needed and it moves quickly „ suitable for a fast midday meal. Serve ware is disposable, so the restaurants can share a dishwasher as well as a kitchen. Seating is shared between the two and diners can take their meal out onto the big deck. Most of the foods are made in-house by Chef Madeline Solorio. The restaurant is open for lunch on weekdays only, noon to 4 p.m. „ and its cash only. In keeping with the island theme of both restaurants, the opening buffet fea-tured a few Caribbean touches as well as favorite American regional and other cuisines. Featured were herbed chicken „ a thigh or three wings (the breast cost 25 cents extra), black beans with yellow rice, pasta primavera, pulled pork, corn on the cob, hot dogs, garlic shrimp, carved roasted pork loin and several green salads. For dessert, fresh fruit, guava pastries, and black and white cookies were available. I think most checks averaged around $5 today,Ž Mrs. Turner said. The grand opening was by word of mouth or from Dockside Grille diners who read fliers posted around the area. A full bar is part of the shared restaurant. House wines and well liquor shots are $1 (mixing juices are $1 more); a 7-ounce can of Bud or Bud Light is $1. $4 martinis are available „ a popular drink already on the menu at the Sea Grille. The response was really good,Ž Mr. Turner said. We were really busy. Peo-ple seemed to really like it „ they were thanking us. I had one guy tell me hes going to look for a second location for me.Ž He laughed. I think its going to do well. Well see.Ž Dockside Dollar Grille is at 766 Northlake Blvd., Lake Park; 842-2180. Its cash only. Q Spoto’s Water Bar launches Sunday brunch menuSunday brunch fans have gained a new spot in Palm Beach Gardens. Starting Aug. 5, Water Bar & Grill will offer a brunch buffet each Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. John Spoto offered a sneak peek at the menu, which will include everything from such breakfast favorites as eggs Benedict to omelets to a raw bar with shrimp and mussels. He says he knows a thing or two about brunch. In 1984, he and his staff launched a brunch at Charleys Crab in Palm Beach, which came to be a Sunday tradition on the island for many years to follow.Ž Look for a childrens table filled with milk, cereal and other favorites of the pint-sized crowd. Cost is $19.95 per adult, $9.95 for children 10 and under; free for kids under 3. Water Bar will offer a bottomless Champagne glass and bottomless Bloody Marys for $10 and bottomless mimosas for $15. From what I can see there are no other options for a full buffet brunch, providing outstanding quality, close to that price point,Ž Mr. Spoto said. After all, its a special meal.Sunday brunch is a meal made for family gatherings, a friends get-together or any special occasion, where a cel-ebration is ready made,Ž he said. Water Bar is at PGA Commons, 4610 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. Phone: 776-5778. On the web at Whole Foods events: Whole Foods Market offers a Weekend of Wine from noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 4-5 at its store in Downtown at the Gardens. Customers can taste wines and receive 10 percent off when they mix and match six bottles or more. The store also has resumed its Meatless Mondays beginning at 6 p.m. Mon-days in August. For $3, customers can dine on a vegetarian meal and learn how going meat-less one day a week can have a posi-tive effect on health, wallets and the environment. Space is limited;, register online at Whole Foods is at 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Suite 6101, Downtown at the Gardens, Palm Beach Gardens. Phone: 691-8550. Chuck Burger gives back to charity: A series of give-back nights Chuck Burger held last December at its Mid-town location enabled the restaurant to donate $1,000 to Place of Hope, which provides emergency and long-term family-style foster care, family outreach and intervention; transitional housing and support services; adoption and foster care recruitment and sup-port; and hope and healing opportuni-ties for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect. It serves more than 100 children on a daily basis.
