THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS. S E E T A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A T A A T A A A S It was hot and no doubt muggy in Jupiter on Aug. 25, 1907. The high temperature hovered somewhere around 90 degrees. Perhaps an ocean breeze stirred the curtains at The Carlin House as Emily Carlin White gave birth to William Carlin White. More than a century later, the temperature hovers somewhere in the 80s. It is raining, and the barest whisper of a breeze whips the palms along the Loxahatchee River, a mile or so west of where The Carlin House once stood. And Emilys son, now known as W. Carlin White, wants to talk about the 105 years that have passed since his birth in 1907. He greets visitors at the door to his home, which he built in the 1970s on land off Center Street that was once a pineapple farm owned by his mother. The cypress-shingled home his mother built around 1920 still stands nearby. Its front entrance faces the Loxahatchee River, a reminder of the days when the areas waterways served as its highways. Mr. Whites gait is slow and purposeful, his handshake firm and his gaze steady. It is difficult to fathom that he is two years older than Palm Beach County itself. He served as mayor of Jupiter during the 1970s and was instrumental in Under a sky the color of old gym socks, the Deep Obsession nuzzles into its berth at Lake Park Harbor Marina just before 4 p.m. on a recent Tuesday, its passengers and crew snug in the afterglow of fellowship and their full days explo-ration of the reef just east of The Breakers. The cloudburst that pounded the coast, an hour ear-lier, bypassed them. Not that a soaking rain could have dampened their spirit of adventure. I shot a lionfish,Ž says Rafi Acosta, a Cubanborn dive instructor from West Palm Beach, bran-dishing a thin metal spear attached to a bungee-cord propellant. Heres my lionfish tamer.Ž He demonstrates, firing the mini-spear into a clump of grass.

Oh, yeah „ hes also secretary of agriculture. Two-thirds of the Agriculture Departments budget is devoted to welfare programs. The biggest is food stamps, which is now the nations second-larg-est welfare program after Medicaid. Its inexorable growth during the past decade, through good times and bad, is a testament to governments self-gener-ating expansion. Asked what labor wanted, the great 20th-century union leader Samuel Gompers answered, More.Ž The mod-ern welfare state lives by the same credo. About 17 million people received food stamps back in 2000. Some 30 mil-lion received them in 2008. Roughly 46 million people receive them today. From 1 in 50 Americans on food stamps at the programs national inception in the 1970s, 1 in 7 Americans are on them now. Even when the economy is projected to improve in the future, usage of food stamps will remain elevated above historic norms. Food Stamp Nation is here to stay. One of its pillars is so-called categorical eligibility, which means that if someone is eligible for another welfare program, he is presumptively eligible for food stamps. In 2000, the Clinton administration issued regulations say-ing that merely getting a noncash wel-fare benefit could make someone eli-gible. Getting a welfare brochure or referred to an 800 number for services is enough to qualify in almost all the states. In Vermont, receiving a book-mark with a telephone number and website for services is enough. Categorical eligibility effectively wiped out the programs old asset test (i.e., you couldnt have $30,000 in the bank and get food stamps), although income limitations still apply. In the Obama stimulus, the work requirement was suspended, too, and hasnt been restored. The requirement had discour-aged young, able-bodied nonparents from utilizing the program; now there are millions of them on food stamps.That the food-stamps program is part of the farm bill „ now up for debate in Congress „ is itself a scam, an exercise in rural-urban logrolling that gives every-one an interest in seeing the bill pass. As every level of government works to grow the program, attempts to scale it back are predictably savaged. When Jeff Sessions, a Republican senator from Alabama, advocated reforms to save $20 billion out of a $770 billion budget for food stamps during the next decade, he was portrayed as a Dickensian villain. The New York Democrat Kirsten Gil-librand accused him of not caring about kids and insisted that food stamps are an engine of economic growth, since every $1 spent on the program allegedly generates $1.71 in economic activity. Theres nothing, apparently, that food stamps cant do. Needless to say, there are destitute people who need help. But the goal should be to reduce dependence on food stamps to historic levels after the recession, and restore the asset test, re-establish a work requirement and implement a better system for income verification. When almost 15 percent of Americans are on food stamps, the gov-ernment should reacquaint itself with two words: too much.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.On gun laws, bipartisan consensus, not gridlock, is the problemAnother mass murder, another shooting spree, leaving bodies bullet-riddled by a legally obtained weapon. This time, it was Oak Creek, Wis., at a Sikh temple, as people gathered for their weekly worship. President Barack Obama said Monday, I think all of us recognize that these kinds of terrible, tragic events are happening with too much regularity for us not to do some soul-searching.Ž Amidst the carnage, platitudes. With an average of 32 people killed by guns in this country every day „ the equivalent of five Wisconsin massacres per day „ both major parties refuse to deal with gun control. Its the consensus, not the gridlock, thats the problem. The presidents press secretary, Jay Carney, said, We need to take common-sense measures that protect Second Amendment rights and make it harder for those who should not have weapons under existing law from obtaining weapons.Ž Its important to note where Jay Carney made that point, reiterating the phrase common senseŽ five times in relation to the Presidents intransigence against strengthening gun laws, and invoking Second Amend-mentŽ a stunning eight times. He spoke from the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the White House, named after one of Mr. Carneys predecessors, shot in the head by John Hinckley during the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan in 1981. Brady survived and co-founded with his wife the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. After each of these massacres, the Brady Campaign has called for strengthened gun control. This latest mass killing was very likely a hate crime, perpetrated by Wade Michael Page, a white, 40-year-old U.S. Army veteran with links to white supremacist groups and membership in skinhead rock bands. Page grew up in Littleton, Colo., the same town where, in 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold plotted and executed their mass-murder plan at Columbine High School. Page was in the U.S. Army from 1992 to 1998. He did missile-system repairs and later was a psychological operationsŽ spe-cialist, although it is not clear in what capacity, based first at Fort Bliss, Texas, then at Fort Bragg, N.C. Page received a general dischargeŽ from the U.S. Army, lower than an hon-orable discharge, but not as bad as a dis-honorable one. Reports suggest he had a problem with alcohol, with several arrests for drunken driving. He recently lost a truck-driving job for the same reason, which may have precipitated the loss of his home to foreclosure. Page may have been troubled, but he was by no means unknown. After the shooting, FBI Special Agent Teresa Carlson of Milwaukee told the press, There may be references to him in various files, and those are things that are being ana-lyzed right now, but, we had no reason to believe, and as far as we know, no law-enforcement agency had any rea-son to believe that he was planning or plotting or capable of such violence.Ž Page was a prominent member of the neo-Nazi skinhead music scene, was known to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks right-wing hate groups, and was also personally inter-viewed, between 2001 and 2003, by Pete Simi, associate professor of criminology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Despite the arrests, despite the history of membership in hate groups, Page was able to walk into a gun shop and buy the 9 mm pistol legally, according to the shop owner. The fact that it was legal is the problem. As if on cue, two days after Pages murderous rampage in Wisconsin, Jared Loughner appeared in court to plead guilty to the shooting spree in Tucson, Ariz., that left six dead and many injured, including former member of Congress Gabrielle Gif-fords. Loughner has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Patri-cia Maisch survived the shooting. As Loughner was tackled that day in Janu-ary 2011, Maisch grabbed the high-capacity magazine that Loughner was using to reload his gun. Maisch and two other survivors of that shooting have launched an advertisement with the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, demanding that both President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney come up with a plan to deal with guns in this country. The day after the Wisconsin shooting, I spoke with Gurcharan Grewal, president of the Sikh Religious Society of Wisconsin. He told me: Ultimately, the problem comes to gun control. I dont know when were going to get serious about all this, and I dont know how many more lives it will take before something will be done.Ž Neither Obama nor Romney agrees that gun control is the answer. It will take a movement to make it happen.

MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhen we think of pets who need exercise and playtime, cats do not automati-cally spring to mind, but they should. Our domestic cats dont need to hunt for a living, but they still have those natural instincts to chase, climb and hide. Toys, games and other forms of entertainment enrich your cats life and burn calories, keeping him happy and healthy. And kitty playtime takes only two or three minutes several times each day. Here are some of our favorite ways to keep cats active, both physically and mentally. Q Get a move on! Cats are attracted by motion. Even the laziest of cats gets excited by the bouncing beam of a flash-light or laser pointer. Following the fast, erratic motion enhances a cats ability to think and move quickly. To give your cat a real workout, direct the light beam up and down stairs or walls, encourag-ing the cat to run and jump. Be careful not to shine a laser pointer in your cats eyes. Chasing a pingpong ball down the hall will also get your cat moving. Some cats will even bring it back to you. Q Gone fishin. Other toys that arouse a cats desire to chase are fishing-pole toys, which have flexible handles attached to lines with furry or feathery lures at the end. Dangle it over your cats head or drag it in front of him and watch him become a silent stalker: ears forward, rear twitching, then pounc-ing on his prey, rolling and kicking to killŽ it. His amazing flips and spins in pursuit of the lure will keep your kit-ten „ and you „ entertained for hours, or at least until your cat is ready for another nap. Just remember to put it away when youre not around to super-vise: You dont want your cat swallowing the string and developing a dangerous intestinal obstruction. Q Live-action entertainment. A peaceful way to give your cat a taste of the hunt is to set a bird feeder just out-side the window. The birds stay safely outdoors and get a meal out of the deal, while your cats life is made more inter-esting on his side of the window. This is a great way to encourage your cat to do a little jumping „ onto the windowsill „ and to appeal to his birder nature. Q Kitty brain candy. The rapid movements of birds, meerkats, aquari-um fish and other prey animals are like crack for cats. Feed your cats hunger for prey in a nonviolent way by turning on a nature show or popping in a DVD made especially for cats. Make sure your TV is securely placed so it wont fall over if your cat decides to leap at the screen in a vain attempt to score a meal. Q Will play for food. The pet stores have a variety of food puzzles „ toys you put food into for your cat to work out. If you cant find a food puzzle your cat likes, try a homemade version. Put dry food inside an empty paper towel roll, and let your cat figure out how to get at it. Or get a Wiffle ball and insert pieces of kibble. Theyll fall out when your cat bats the ball around. Q Hide and seek. Put an empty paper sack or a cardboard box with a little packing paper inside it on the floor and let your cat explore. Hell love the dark interiors and crinkly noises. Boxes are extra fun when you have two cats, providing the perfect way to play hide-and-seek. Use your imagination to keep your cat busy. So many cats these days are indoors, which is good for them, the neighbors and the wildlife. But when you close the door on your cat, you need to make the indoors more interesting. Fortunately, doing so strengthens the bond between you and your pet. Q Pets of the Week>> Rosco is a neutered great Swiss mountain dog mix. He weighs 52 pounds and is 1 year old.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY him last year, and he hasnt forgotten. Or forgiven. Worst pain hes ever felt. Worse than the stitches he got after cutting open his foot. Worse than when his appendix ruptured. Excruciating,Ž Mr. Chouiniere says. My hand swelled up to three times its size. I sat on the back of the boat and cried.Ž A more beautiful fish would be hard to imagine, but, as aqua-focused Floridians are learning, beauty is the beast. And, from all accounts, the beast has taken up permanent residence. So from scientific research to commercial selling, from lion-fish derbies to lionfish on dinner plates, the effort to contain the invaders ranges far and wide, bringing them into the lives and futures of all of us. Lionfish, named for their mane of needle-like dorsal fins, are native to the Indian and western-Pacific Oceans, but, since the 1990s, theyve made themselves increas-ingly at home offshore of the Carolinas and in Floridas warm waters. Why here? Why now? Theories abound. A 2003 report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) blamed Hurricane Andrew, citing the destruction of a private aquarium that allowed lionfish to enter Miamis Biscayne Bay. The aquarium, it was reported, sat on a porch overlooking the bays seawall. That notion has since been retracted; even before Andrews 1992 visit, a crab-trap fisherman in Dania caught a lionfish. One hypothesis points to ballast waters from trans-oceanic ships; another, far more likely, points to aquarium owners who jettisoned their colorful-but-aggressive tank-dwellers in the misguided belief that returning them to nature was both right and good. However the fish might have arrived, they are unlikely to leave. Ever. My personal opinion is well never get rid of them,Ž Mr. Chouiniere says. There are so many of them hatching, and they multiply like rabbits.Ž In truth, when it comes to reproduction, lionfish put rabbits to shame. For one thing, in warm enough waters, lionfish can reproduce year-round. For another, they can reproduce every four days. And each spawn, NOAA researchers say, can pro-duce 30,000 eggs. By comparison, rabbits are slackers. They reproduce for only nine months of the year. The average litter var-ies from four to 12 young. In a year, then, a female rabbit can be mother, grandma and great-granny to a family of about 800. No threat to the planet. But lionfish? They are a worry. Yes, their red-and-white zebra-striped body and fl uttery pectoral fins make them lovely to look at, but lionfish are not delightful guests. They have voracious appetites. They have no known natural predators. They reproduce like mad. Its a bad combination. Heres NOAA on the subject: Due to their population explosion and aggressive behavior, lionfish have the potential to become the most disastrous marine inva-sion in history by drastically reducing the abundance of coral reef fishes and leaving behind a devastated ecosystem. Dr. Mark Hixon and his team from Oregon State University with support from NOAAs Undersea Research Program (NURP) have embarked on the first studies to measure the severity of the crisis posed by this invasive predator.Ž And this, from a paper by Dr. Hixon and researcher Mark Albins: With an eye on the future, we describe a possible worst case scenario in which the direct and indirect effects of lionfish could combine with the impacts of preexisting stressors „ especially overfishing „ and cause sub-stantial deleterious changes in coral-reef communities.Ž Researchers in the Caribbean have found 50-plus species of fish in the bellies of lion-fish: baby groupers and snappers, impor-tant catches for commercial fishermen, and baby parrotfish, whose taste for algae limits the overgrowth of coral-killing by algae. The scuba diving magazine Under-currentŽ cites short-term studies on Baha-mian reefs that suggest lionfish may have the capacity to reduce the recruitment of juvenile fishes to reef areasŽ and could (in theory) lead to declines in Caribbean reef biodiversity, disruption of normal eco-logical processes, and possibly the local extinction of select species.Ž Still, not every researcher is ready to sound an ecological death knell. Zack Jud, a Ph.D. candidate from Florida Interna-tional University who has done extensive work around the Jupiter Inlet and the Loxahatchee River, suggests that such pan-icky predictions are based on studies with fairly limited scope and are, therefore, premature. Mr. Jud began hearing about lionfish off the Carolinas coast several years ago. Then came talk of their presence in Florida offshore waters. Might they, he wondered, migrate into the estuaries? Doubtful, he thought, but worth exploring, so in August of 2010 he and his academic adviser, Craig Layman, donned scuba gear for a look-see. Within 10 minutes of entering the water, they spotted and captured lionfish with spear poles and hand nets. We would snorkel the entire shoreline of the Loxahatchee River during each day of research,Ž he says. They like structures. In nature, natural habitat, they like coral reefs, or a rocky overhang or cavern. We find them a lot of times on artificial habi-tat. Boat racks, shopping carts, piers, dock pilings.Ž Those lionfish sightings were news.This is the first documented intrusion of lionfish into an estuarine systems in their invasive range,Ž Mr. Jud wrote in a paper published in Aquatic Biology. In total, 211 lionfish were captured in the Loxahatchee River between August 2010 and April 2011.Ž The ecological significance of estuaries, he noted in the article, includes providing a habitat for commercially, recreation-ally and ecologicallyŽ important species. A major decline in those species is attribut-able, as he wrote, to shoreline development, pollution, dam construction, dredg-ing and, to some extent, invasive species. The potential impact of lionfish in the estuaries? The honest answer is, we dont know,Ž Mr. Jud says. We dont know yet. There are a number of scientists out there who are putting out what I call the gloom-and-doom mat. They want to tell you that these lionfish are going to extirpate all of our native species, that theyre going to destroy ecosystems and theyll ruin Florida as we know it. They may, but we dont know that yet, and my hunch is that theyre not going to do all of that.Ž For one thing, he says, past experience has shown a decrease, over time, of other invasive species. Venomous cane toads, for example, invaded Dade County in great numbers in the late 1960s and early 70s, then diminished significantly in the 80s. Mr. Jud expects a similar population decline in lionfish over the long term. There have been a few studies that have shown some potentially catastrophic effects of lionfish,Ž he says, but, in my opinion, some of those studies have pretty big limitations and the scope is not very broad.Ž He makes it clear that he is not defending lionfish. I wish lionfish werent here,Ž he says. They certainly pose some sort of threat to our reefs. However, I think its time to look at other potential reef issues „ issues that we may have some control over „ because we know that lionfish are here to stay. If we devote too much attention to eradicating lionfish, theres a danger of overlooking other threats to our reefs.Ž The danger to reefs is real and growing far worse. As ecologist Roger Bradbury, a researcher at Australian National Univer-sity, wrote in The New York Times last month, Overfishing, ocean acidification and pollution are pushing coral reefs into oblivion. Each of those forces alone is fully capable of causing the global col-lapse of coral reefs; together, they assure it.Ž So lionfish are in no way the sole culprits. A word in their favor? Yummy. Charter boat captain Brian Chouinieres wife Janine enjoys lionfish sushi. Mr. Chouiniere prefers to bread it and saut it. The Chouinieres, both dive masters at Jim Abernathys Scuba Adventures in Lake Park, take out charters every day, barring inclement weather, and they see lionfish, large and small, all the time. The larger ones, they will sometimes spear and take home to filet. The smaller ones, theyll sometimes spear and feed to moray eels in the hope that the morays might eventually develop a taste for the flashy fish. For now, though, not even a moray eel will gobble a live lionfish. You can tell when you see them, they dont have a care in the world,Ž Mr. Chouiniere says of lionfish. The little ones, theyll just sit there and fan out their fins like, You cant mess with me, and Im like, Yes, I can.Ž If it seems that a bit of revenge is at work here, it is. Seeing a lionfish can make Mr. Chouiniere see red „ and lead him to relive his encounter with one, in Febru-ary of 2011. That day was just a fun dive. It was fun until he spotted and speared a large lionfish and felt one of its dorsal fins pierce the fleshy part of his palm, just below the thumb, as he was shoving it off the spear with his knife. He surfaced immediately, his hand already ballooning in size, the pain stunning. The boats captain called Janine Chouiniere to have her meet them at Sing-er Islands Sailfish Marina with a thermos of boiling water and a bowl. One of the only first-aid remedies is to get your hand into hot water,Ž Mr. Chouiniere says. So Id hold my hand in the bowl as long as I could stand it, but as soon as I took it out, Id feel the pain again.Ž Doctors at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center administered morphine and ste-roids. Even so, the swelling lasted for three days and his hand ached for weeks. So, yes, he turns the tables on them now. Targets them. Kills them. Sometimes eats them. Jessica Zabel, whose father Steve Gyland owns Cod & Capers in Palm Beach Gar-dens, encourages area divers to kill lionfish „ theres no catch limit „ and bring them in to sell.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 NEWS A9Youre down there anyway,Ž she tells them, so just grab some. Well pay you $5 a pound. Its money in your pocket. And its in your interest because they eat baby lobster and grouper and thats your liveli-hood.Ž Ms. Zabel compares the mild taste of lionfish to hogfish or tilapia, but she doubts theyll achieve widespread popu-larity as a delicacy. Its a little cost-prohibitive,Ž she says, seated at a table in Cod and Capers on U.S. 1 in North Palm Beach. Its very labor-intensive and by the time you filet them, there isnt much there. But the chef here tried it as fish fingers and it was delicious, absolutely delicious.Ž A few area restaurants, from time to time, will add lionfish to their menus. Ms. Zabel cites dining rooms at The Breakers and PGA National, but says that prepara-tion is too time-consuming to make lion-fish standard fare „ not to mention the wariness of diners who have heard all too many horror stories about the fishs venomous nature. But because the only venom is in the fishs fins, which divers clip before bringing them ashore, neither preparing nor eating lionfish is harmful to ones health. Ah, but heres something thats harmful to the health of lionfish: the second annual Lionfish Derby & Rodeo, being set for Aug. 17 and 18 held at Sailfish Marina & Resort. The marina played host, last August, to Palm Beach Countys inaugural Lionfish Derby, during which lionfish wranglers officially caught and counted a bounty of 706 of the fancy fish. Last years total lion-fish count for derbies sponsored by Reef Educational and Environmental Founda-tion (REEF) in South Florida, the Keys and the Bahamas: 3,542. A lionfish tasting ses-sion followed the 2011 event, with prepara-tion by Chef Oscar of the Singer Island Hilton, and recipe-sampling is promised once again this year. The initial intent of lionfish derbies was to help eradicate the species, but the passage of time „ combined with the fishs tremendous reproduction rate „ has shown that to be an unlikely o utcome. A more significant derby impact is public awareness and education. Were past the stage of being able to make a real difference, and there are so many other pressing issues that we might be able to fix or at least ameliorate,Ž says Mr. Jud. How often do you see people running around and stomping on brown anoles or curly tail lizards? Theyve almost wiped out our native green anoles. Flori-das got a rich history of invasive species. The real answer now is figuring out how to do our best with the situation. We have no idea what the next invasive species will be. Make people understand, if you let your animal go it can pose a severe threat. Be aware of other avenues for disposing of an unwanted pet. The real issue is education and awareness of not introducing non-native species.Ž Q TIM NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLYRafi Acosta, left, and Brian Chouiniere aboard the Deep Obsession. the founding of Jupiter Medical Center. As a leading local historian, he has documented 150 years of events in Jupiter. He seems delighted to have visitors.Do anything you like,Ž he says when a reporter asks about recording an interview. We have no rules and regulations here to the contrary.Ž He laughs, and explains his rich memory. I go back unbelievably, mainly because the family was very close, so I felt like I was there before I was there, if you know the feeling. See, in those days, things were not set up in the same fashion they are today,Ž he says. We had different likes and different dislikes, and of course, cameras and photography were quite new. Of course, we had some of the finest photographers in the world right here.Ž Ernest Walter Histed, who was renowned for his portraits of such celebrities as Samuel Clemens and such European royalty as the empress of Germany, came to the area, and later settled in the Jupiter area. He had plenty of ability, but he was also liked by everybody „ the snobs in those days. There were an awful lot of snobbish things in Europe. It caught on from one group to another there,Ž he says. But Mr. Histed was not too highfalutin to humor a certain young man. I was interested in photography before I left the area. He took great pride in show-ing me all his stuff,Ž Mr. White says. Town charactersThe town always has attracted its share of interesting characters. Perry Como, Olivia Newton-John and Burt Reynolds are three from recent mem-ory who come to mind. But the early 20th century also had its characters. One of the strangest characters here, and I think the words strange character is a misnomer, was Sperry „ William Sperry,Ž Mr. White says. Mr. Sperrys family was an owner of the Sperry & Hutchinson Co., distributor of S&H Green Stamps. He had a home on the south side of Jupiter Inlet, where Suni Sands trailer park now is situated. Not only was he very fond of the area, but he was very possessive about the area and he tried to change it to his liking, especially the way The Carlin House girls dressed for dinner when waiting on the tables,Ž Mr. White says. What he did, well, Ill say it, he was a pompous ass in many ways, but a very useful pompous because he had been all over the world and he picked Jupiter as his final stay, and he would pass on to anybody in the area what he had learned in Europe, especially in the culinary area, which involved The Carlin House. And the girls just flatly refused to wear hats. In those days, that was part of the dress uniform for people doing culinary work.Ž The Carlin House, which Mr. Whites grandparents initially had built as a home in 1887, was a hotel that offered fine dining and attracted people from as far away as Palm Beach, who came up to dine.First Western Union, then wirelessWhat people dont realize is that this was an area where people of all grades of life could come to Jupiter and live as they did almost at home,Ž Mr. White says. The Western Union stopped in Jupiter first. It went from Washington, D.C., and its first stop, of course, because of the topography of the area, it stopped in Jupiter ƒ and Jupiter went from Jupiter to Havana and further south.Ž It was communication that brought Mr. Whites father to the area. His father, William White, came down to install the first wireless station near the lighthouse. That wireless system was designed to aid mariners. Mr. Whites father was transferred to Managua to set up wireless as the United States solidified its hold on Panama. Much of Mr. Whites early education was in Nicaragua, where he moved at age 7. He learned to speak Spanish there. As a matter of fact, thats all I spoke for many, many years,Ž he says. He also speaks Italian and Portuguese fluently and can understand Japanese. His parents separated, but the young Carlin returned regularly to visit his family. There wasnt much more than the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the U.S. Life Sav-ing Station his grandfather commanded at Jupiter Inlet. Plus lots of scrubland.Actually, there wasnt even woods. There was nothing more than palmetto set up in the area „ short palmetto, not the tall ones now, this was the scrub palmetto. You couldnt see anything looking further south when I first started memorizing the area,Ž he says. His father would send him to Boston every summer. When I first came along, you couldnt stay here in the summer at all. It was impossible. You would stay here from maybe September to June. The rest of the time, you had to get out of here,Ž he says. The heat was oppressive and so were the mosquitoes. His family always headed north to Boston; others who could also left for the hot-test part of summer in those days before electricity and air conditioning. It wasnt until the teens and 1920s that most families that could afford a generator had one to light their homes. The railroad came in and before the railroad, we used the Intracoastal Water-way,Ž he says. Supplies for the lighthouse and the wireless station came via steamboats that trav-eled the Intracoastal Waterway. The Carlin House took advantage of that because we would get our ice in the fall and they would bury it out in the yard in sawdust,Ž he says. That ice would last from September to June. At The Carlin House, it was used to chill drinks. Residents dined according to what the steamboats brought. The key to how people would live in that area was based very much on how the people who ran the lighthouse survived and operated. We always thought that was the pattern, so to speak, for the way people lived back in those days,Ž he says. A lot of fish?There was a tremendous amount of fish here, but fish was like anything else. When you have an abundance of something, you dont use it. Thats what happened here. We had an abundance of fish, but it was a type of fish that you would get tired of in a hurry, which was tropical in nature. The fish that varied with the season, like the bluefish and the pompano, they came down in the fall and left pretty much in the spring,Ž he said.Coming homeWhen he came of age, Mr. White left town, but he always came back. He earned a degree in electrical engineering at Colum-bia University, joined the Navy and trav-eled the world. He was at home in Jupiter for the 1928 hurricane. We were right on the water in the middle of this thing,Ž he says. He also married Lillian, the love of his life. Together, they raised a daughter, Lynn. When he retired from the Navy about 40 years ago, he and Lillian came back to Jupiter. He was mayor from 1970 to 1976, and was instrumental in getting Jupiter Medical Center built. In between all that, he and Lillian authored books on local history that tell the story of the area with authority, and an occasional bit of humor. She met me, came down here and got married, it was just like fitting another glove somewhere. She was a tremendous person,Ž he says. Lillian died in 1989, and he lives alone, with help from an assistant. Stacks of magazines, including Scientific American, sit near his easy chair. Mr. White has used computers for more than half a century now „ thats an iMac parked on his desk in the corner of his sunny Florida room. He still has a valid driver license „ thats his Prius parked in the garage, but says he does not drive much anymore. At my age now, its not a good idea at all. If I should get in an accident, even though I would be perfectly capable, it would not be a wise thing at all,Ž he says, adding, It would be absolutely foolish.Ž What pleases him most?The friends that I still have. Somehow or other, I do seem to have an abundance of friends, most of whom I dont even know,Ž he says, laughing. He goes to lunch with a group he calls the gang,Ž and no doubt the gang and oth-ers will turn out for dinner Aug. 25, when this elder statesman of Jupiter turns 105. What about his longevity?A great-aunt lived well past 100, and his own mother eventually remarried and had a long life. He has an uncanny recall of the past and his short-term memory remains sharp. Some of it could be attributed to genetics, but Mr. White is not sure: I dont know what is motivating me. I dont understand that mechanism that does this, because I dont seem to forget any-thing in that arena. It seems to be perfectly natural.Ž Q CENTURYFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOCarlin White as a young man, above, and as a baby boy, left.


A10 WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVING linda When Jeff announced he was leaving her after 15 years of marriage, Beth was stunned. She knew things had been strained and theyd been arguing a lot, but she assumed they were just going through a rough patch. But Jeff told her he hadnt been happy in a very long time, and needed time on his own to sort things out. Beth was furious, and resented that he took off, leaving her to pick up the pieces with their three school-age children, who were bewildered and scared. Beth sought the solace of anyone who would commiserate with her and who would agree that Jeff was a selfish jerk who had betrayed his family. An inner voice cautioned her that perhaps she was inappropriately sharing too much, but she took a perverse pleasure in trashing her husband and painting herself as the blameless injured partly. Her close friends and family circled around her with love and support, and indignantly joined her in maligning Jeff. Beths mother declared shed never really cared for Jeff. In her mind, he was self-centered and hadnt helped Beth enough at home and with the children. Beths best friend Meredith took the opportunity to point out that Jeff often talked too much, overpowering conversations when they were out with friends. Meredith insisted Beth was much better off without the bum. Beth missed Jeff terribly. She knew she had only been talking about his negatives. She began to remember the good times. Jeff HAD been her best friend, and no one knew her quirks better than he. No one knew better how to brighten her day when she was low, or could listen to her, and give her helpful feedback. So when Jeff showed up at the house three months later, telling her he had made a terrible mistake, missed her terribly and was heartsick that he had hurt her so badly, she was very torn. He begged her to please, please give him a chance to make it up to her. Beth wanted to believe him, but wasnt sure she could ever trust him again not to hurt her. Her heart and head were battling about what to do. Beth sheepishly understood that a large part of her confusion was her worry about what she would say to the family and friends who had listened to her endless complaints and might think she was foolish to even consider reconciliation. Or be furious that she was considering letting him come home when she knew how much they disapproved of Jeff. How would she face everyone? Oh, she wished she had kept her mouth shut. Many of us learn discretion the hard way, when our statements have come back to hurt us or another person. Weve all been in the position of regretting a confidence we shared, wishing to take back the onerous words as soon as they left our mouths. In the heat of the moment, when were hurting, were likely to throw caution to the wind. If we speak negatively about a third party, we run the risk of staining that persons reputation and influencing others against them. We may actually enjoy the shock value of maligning a person, so others no longer hold them in esteem. What sweet revenge! What we dont allow ourselves to consider is that we once loved this person for an important reason. Oftentimes, this person may have behaved poorly to us over time, so weve understandably turned our heads against the very qualities that drew us to them in the first place. What do we do if they seem to sincerely wish to make amends? Do we rigidly refuse to give them the opportunity to demonstrate that they can genuinely make up for the hurt and come through for us? We certainly have this right, and taking this stance protects us from the uncertainty of opening our hearts to being hurt again by this person. We may have already determined that it is just not in our interest to become emotionally committed to this person again. And, of course, it is in our interest to clarify standards for how we expect to be treated in a relationship, and to ensure that our interactions going forward will be defined by mutual respect, caring and consideration. Now, lets be clear, were not responsible for another persons rude or offensive behavior. Each person must be accountable to decide how he will handle an upsetting life circumstance. If Jeff was unhappy in the marriage, there were many ways he could have addressed the upset with Beth, prior to announcing a separation. And Beth now has the right to consider all of her options as she makes decisions to go forward in a way she believes will ultimately be right for herself and her children. Its not a given that they should reconcile, just because Jeff has decided that he is now ready to come home. On the contrary, theres clearly a lot of emotional work ahead for the two of them, to understand why things careened out of control. But, as we make major life decisions, letting everyone elses opinions influence what we ultimately do is a slippery slope, and may compromise our ability to evaluate the choice that is ultimately only our decision to make. Our loved ones may truly believe they have our best interests at heart, but they are not walking in our shoes and are not privy to the complexities that shape personal relationships. Unfortunately, their criticisms may ultimately damage family relationships because it will be hard to forget (and possibly forgive) their harsh commentary. Certainly, if several close confidantes bring up valid reasons for caution, it may make sense to carefully weigh these factors as we make important life decisions. It takes a certain amount of courage and personal integrity to calmly say to those around you: Ive carefully considered the choices in front of me, and Ive made a decision that I believe is in my best interest. I know how much you care about me, and you worry I might be making the wrong choice. But Im hoping you will support me going forward.Ž Sometimes we become so caught up in worrying what other people think, we lose our ability to think for ourselves. We become so consumed by what we imagine to be critical judgments we may be consumed by fear: fear of being thought of as a jerk or a failure. When we focus solely on seeking approval, we may believe that those around us know whats right for us better than we do.

WE ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE PLANS Scientists from the Jupiter campus of The Scripps Research Institute have identified a protein that impairs the development and maintenance of lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), but is repressed during the initial stages of the disease, allowing for rapid tumor growth. While the study, published in the journal Cell, largely focuses on the role of this new tumor suppressor in lymphoma induced by Myc oncoproteins (the cancer-promoting products of Myc oncogenes), the authors show this circuit is apparently operational in all human tumors with MYC involvement, which is more than half of all human tumor types. This opens a new therapeutic avenue to exploit for cancers with Myc involvement „ including relapsed metastatic tumors and refractory tumors, those that have not responded to treatment,Ž said John Cleveland, a Scripps Research professor and chair of the Department of Cancer Biology, who led the study. The Myc family of oncoproteins (c-Myc, N-Myc, and L-Myc) regulate critical pathways that contribute to tumors; c-Myc expression, which is activated in human Burkitt lymphoma, is sufficient to induce the growth of several tumor types in animal models. In the new study, the scientists focused on precancerous and malignant Myc-expressing B cells, part of the immune system affected in human lymphoma. Using transgenic animal models, Cleveland and his team, led by the efforts of senior postdoctoral fellow Robert Rounbehler, showed that Myc-directed repression of a protein called tristetraprolin (TTP/ZFP36) was important for both the development and maintenance of cancer. The suppression of TTP is a hallmark of human cancers with MYC involvement, Cleveland said. The scientists results showed that overriding this pathway by forced expression of TTP more than doubled the lifespan of Myc transgenic mice. Strikingly, Mr. Rounbehler discovered that re-introduction of TTP into Myc-driven lymphoma totally disabled these tumors, indicating an important therapeutic target. The first author of the study, Tristetraprolin is a Tumor Suppressor That Impairs Myc-Induced Lymphoma and Abolishes the Malignant State,Ž is Robert J. Rounbehler of Scripps Research. Other authors include Mohammad Fallahi, Chunying Yang, Meredith A. Steeves, Weimin Li, Joanne R. Doherty, and Franz X. Schaub of Scripps Research; Sandhya Sanduja and Dan A. Dixon of the University of South Carolina; and Perry J. Blackshear of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

The style icon, known for her use of dynamic colors and signature prints, from bright florals to bold graphics to vintage inspired jacquards, treated a crowd of 50 Loggerhead Marinelife Center supporters to an intimate fashion show. Ms. Turk emceed the evening, showcasing her spring and summer collections, sharing with the crowd the design inspiration for each piece. The fashion event also marked the announcement of Loggerhead Marinelife Centers 2013 Lights Out Gala Chairs Dawn Hoffman and Alice Waxman. The pairs primary goal will be to increase funds raised at the gala, which features dinner, drinks and cocktails at the organizations 12,000 square foot campus. Bringing 300 guests directly to the campus gives people a first-hand feel for Loggerhead Marinelife Centers mission,Ž said Ms. Hoffman in a prepared statement. There really is no better way to showcase the centers efforts to educate more than 215,000 annual visitors and research and rehabilitate threatened and endangered sea turtles.Ž Philanthropists Susan Johnson and Elizabeth Neuhoff pass the reigns on to Ms. Hoffman and Ms. Waxman. Under the leadership of Ms. Johnson and Ms. Neuhoff, the gala raised a total of $233,000 in 2011 and 2012. The pair helped bring in new supporters and creatively increased the esteem of Loggerhead Marinelife Centers relatively young fundraising event, the center said in a prepared statement. After the fashion show and announcement of the 2013 Lights Out Gala co-chairs, Ms. Turk mingled with guests, providing answers to their fashion questions and delighted them with one-on-one style suggestions, as guests tried on their favorite pieces of Ms. Turks new collection.

Not on the playing field necessarily, but in the real estate office. What would be goal for this match?$47.25 million.I believe the seller/developer realized we had an international angle and access to high net-worth buyers world-wide and thats why he decided to give us the mandate,Ž said Ken Meierling, owner and broker of Engel & Vlkers Jupiter. The 1,757-acre property, which is east of Interstate 95, is almost 3 square miles. It has a mile of frontage on Bridge Road and is 2 miles deep. It may be one of the largest listings ever in Martin County. By comparison, homes on Miamis Indian Creek Island have been selling for more than $10 million each, with one 10-bedroom home that was listed at $52 million going under contract for an undisclosed price, and a second, 21,746-square-foot home being listed at $45 million. Closer to Hobe Sound, Engel & Vlkers has a 3.8-acre oceanfront Jupiter Island lot listed at $5.9 million. And Fite Shavell & Associates lists a 4-acre oceanfront lot on the south end of Jupi-ter Island for $10.995 million. That lot boasts a 24-foot elevation. Hobe Sound Polo Club may well appeal to buyers of similar means to those in Miami-Dade County and along the Palm Beach and Martin County coasts. The polo club was developed in part because of its proximity to Wellington, which offers some of the largest eques-trian shows in the country and which has a renowned USPA polo tournament season between October and April. According to published reports, Martin County commissioners last year rejected a request to allow the polo clubs developers to divide the land into additional lots. According to Engel & Vlkers, the polo club has had an active tournament schedule over the past three years and developed a significant regional follow-ing, drawing registered players from across the country and the world. The polo club still is periodically sought out and used by polo teams and breeders, Mr. Meierling said. The property includes a 120-acre equestrian complex, consisting of five irrigated championship polo fields, two irrigated stick and ball fields, paddock sites, a three-quarter-mile exercise track, associated barns and outbuild-ings, and more. Two newly constructed smaller equestrian complexes on the property serve for training, boarding, breeding and other operations. The most prominent building on the site is just off Bridge Road. The building has been moved several times, before ending up at its current location, but it originally served as the Hobe Sound depot on Henry Flaglers Florida East Coast Railway. Mr. Meierling said his companys international listings give it a unique cachet in selling large properties such as this. We list game farms in South Africa and others with the country parks,Ž he said. Those properties frequently are vast, and can encompass many square miles and thousands of acres. We also have offices in Argentina so we are not unknown to the polo world,Ž he said. And the German-based company has special ties to the game of polo. Mr. Vlkers is an avid polo player,Ž Mr. Meierling said. He owns a finca (a country estate) on Mallorca with his own polo fields and sponsors polo events across Europe.Ž Q ASKING PRICE FOR HOBE SOUND POLO CLUB: $47.25 millionAnn Paton has joined the non-profit Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades as director of development. The foundation champions the res-toration and preser-vation of the greater ecosystem of Flori-das River of Grass. Ann Paton comes to the Marshall Foundation as a sea-soned fundraiser and administrator with substantial experience in creating and sustaining strong community relation-ships that generate committed stake-holders,Ž said Nancy Marshall, founda-tion president, in a prepared statement. In fact, her career as a successful fund-raiser includes serving as vice president of advancement at Barry University for six years, 2005-2011.Ž Ms. Paton actually brings to the Marshall Foundation a 20-plus-year back-ground in higher education fundraising. She began in the early 1990s by man-aging annual fund and alumni rela-tions programs for Dartmouth Medi-cal School, and then moved to Brown University School of Medicine to run a successful $70 million capital campaign. In 2004, Frank Brogan, then president of Florida Atlantic University, hired Ms. Paton as vice president for Institutional Advancement. In her new position, Ms. Paton is responsible for all of the Marshall Foun-dations fundraising efforts, such as securing gifts from individuals, corpo-rations, foundations and other private funding sources, as well as long-term development campaigns and various special events, including the annual River of Grass Gala. The new director of development position is funded by a recent grant from The AWC Family Foundation in Nashville, Tenn. Based in Palm Beach County, the Marshall Foundation champions the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem through science-based education and outreach programs. Annually, more than 25,000 elementary and high school students in Palm Beach County actively participate in the Marshall Foundations various education programs. The foundation has in recent years awarded more than $450,000 in schol-arships and internships, planted nearly 100,000 native Florida trees in wetland areas, and involved more than 5,000 volunteers in hands-on restoration proj-ects.

A14 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIt’s a small world, from the Hamptons to Palm Beach heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF My husband returned home last night from the Hamptons where he spent the last two weeks. Honestly, his return couldnt have come soon enough. This may sound like a fun getaway from the South Florida heat, but his trip was in fact for business „ although I think he definitely mixed it with a bit of pleasure, too, as there is really no better place to spend the month of August for spectacular dining experiences, world class golf and some of the best beaches on the East Coast. That explains why real estate has such an impact on the area and shares so many of our clients from throughout the Palm Beaches. Craig decided to go to the Hamptons this summer to visit a few clients in addition to making various broker con-nections. He was focused primarily on Southampton and Bridgehamton as our office, Fite Shavell & Associates, has an affiliate office in the Hamptons that we work very closely with „ Saunders & Associates has offices in each of these towns. Similar to Fite Shavell, they are relatively new to the area, but they have quickly become one of the top broker-ages in the Hamptons. David Fite and Andrew Saunders have worked together in the past and have a similar approach to real estate and an impeccable business background. Even with all of the connections that I have, Craig has, and the more than 85 agents that we now have through-out our Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, and most recently opened Delray offices have, small world encounters never cease to amaze me. Craig and I work together as partners sharing time in our Palm Beach and North Palm Beach offices. We originally met when Craig was in the golf pro-fession and I was in the custom-home building business. We both ventured onto the home-building business and now concentrate primar-ily on residential real estate. When Craig was in the golf profession prior to coming to Florida, he had the opportunity to work for the Trump orga-nization at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. He opened the golf course with some other associates, one being Joe Isidori. Joe was the executive chef at the club and ultimately became the executive chef for the entire Trump organization at age 25. Much like Craig, Joe has moved on from the Trump surroundings. He has vast experience as he has opened a number of restaurants, from Miami to New York City to Las Vegas. And most recently, he has taken to the Hamptons sceneŽ offering one of the finest experi-ences anywhere „ Southfork Kitchen in Bridgehampton. You may be wondering where this is going, but this is where it really becomes one of those small world stories. Craig was in our affiliates Bridgehampton office after an early morning round of golf with another client at the exclusive Bridge Golf Club (a mere $975,000 to join and a membership limited to only 150 members). He was meeting with Vincent, a broker in Bridgehampton, regarding the relationship between the Hamptons and South Florida. They discussed one of our clients in particular who is a Palm Beach resident and summers in the Hamptons. Never discussing the clients name, Craig invited Vincent to join him and his client that evening for dinner. Vincent, though, had another engagement. That night, Craig took his client to dinner at Southfork Kitchen, where he knew it would be a great experience and a place where Craig could reconnect with Chef Joe. Joe is only at Southfork Kitchen on the weekends as he just opened another restaurant called Arthur, and he spends most of his week traveling and overseeing other restaurants. As Craig visited with his client over what she called one of the very best meals she has had in the Hamptons, Craig discussed Palm Beach real estate and her future plans for New York. She currently has a very special home in Palm Beach that we are working with and she has plans to possibly downsize and relocate in Palm Beach, giving her the ability to purchase in Southampton where she has been renting for the past three seasons. And come to find out her broker in the Hamptons who has helped her each of the past three seasons was Vincent, the broker Craig had met with earlier that day! As they were talking about the area and her current home in Southampton, she told Craig she was currently working with a broker from Saunders, and they put the pieces together from there. As they finished dinner, she made reservations to return. She could not have been more thankful to Craig for introducing her to this great dining expe-rience. She also told Craig that she had met two different people in the Hamp-tons who were looking in Palm Beach and that she would have them contact him directly the following week. Craig also stayed after dinner to have a drink with Chef Joe and reminisce about the good old days of working together at Trump. Come to find out, Joe is looking to sell a condominium in Palm Beach Gardens and his mother is looking to purchase something in Jupiter. Dining with a client who is working with another broker in another state, to discover that the broker is at our affili-ate office in New York, really developed in to something much larger than just a casual catching upŽ dinner. Point is, you never know who knows whom and where the next buyer or seller may come from. As successful brokers, my husband and I remain as active as possible with all of our clients, business contacts and friends „ ultimately offer-ing them the finest real estate services possible for either themselves or some-one they may know. It really is a small world, and a successful reputation with other elite pro-fessionals throughout various industries always helps increase exposure and ulti-mately expand business!

A GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRYREAL ESTATE WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 A15 This historic home is noted for its Mediterranean Revival style and Moorish influences. Significant stone architectural details, an abundance of arches, a pecky cypress vaulted ceiling and pecky cypress doors throughout evoke the feeling of entering a castle. The home at 190 Valencia Road in West Palm Beach offers a magnificent stone fireplace and spiral stairway with a hand-forged wrought iron railing. Overlooking the living room is a second floor gallery, which spans the length of the living room and is one of the special architectural features of this home. During the period of Prohibition, the small room abutting the dining room with the pass throughŽ door was used to pass alcohol into the dining room. This is now a powder room. The U-shaped floor plan was designed to permit cool breezes to flow through the house. French doors open onto an interior courtyard, which is protected from the wind and rain. The birdbath located in the garden was originally located in the interior courtyard. The home is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and a private meditation garden in the southwest corner of the property. The salt-water pool and spa is adorned with Mediterranean styled tiles. This is a perfect home for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. The property is located close to the Intracoastal Waterway and offers water views from many rooms. A testament to its livability: There have been three owners who have lived in the home for more than 20 years since 1924. The original construction drawings have been passed down from the original owners and are in remarkable condition. The home is listed at $1,299,000 by Fite Shavell & Associates.

There were 1,220 new foreclosures filed in July, down 2.3 percent from the 1,249 cases filed in June, but up 28.4 per-cent from the 950 new foreclosures filed in July 2011, according to a news release from the clerks office. The number of new foreclosure cases appears to be holding steady,Ž said Clerk Sharon Bock. While its the second straight month weve seen a decline in new case filings, the levels are comparable to what weve seen all this year.Ž Another indicator for Palm Beach Countys housing market is the number of mortgages and deeds recorded by the clerks office. The office is keeper of Palm Beach Countys official records, and records all deeds and mortgages submitted for recording in Palm Beach County. There were 4,828 deeds recorded during July in Palm Beach County, a 16.7 percent decrease from the 5,799 deeds recorded in June but a 0.5 percent increase over the 4,804 deeds recorded in July 2011. There also were 3,105 mortgages recorded in July, a 14.8 percent decrease from the 3,645 mortgages recorded in June, but a 43.2 percent increase from the 2,169 mortgages recorded in July 2011, according to the statement. There were 606 properties sold during Julys online foreclosure auctions, according to statistics from Grant Street Group, the facilitator of ClerkAuction. Of those, 426 were sold back to the plaintiff „ typically a bank or mortgage company „ in the foreclosure proceed-ing, while 180 were sold to a third party. Six properties did not sell at auction. There were 295 scheduled auctions cancelled in July, out of 907 advertised for sale. The cancellation rate was at 32.5 percent, compared with 37.7 per-cent in June. The average cancellation rate is about 30 percent. The clerks office processes all foreclosure-related court documents, notic-es of action and motions. After a fore-closure judgment, the office conducts the foreclosure auction and issues all post-sale documents, such as the certifi-cate of title.

The museum will re-open on Sept. 18. New York-based artist Rob Wynne will install a large-scale work titled I Remember Ceramic Castles, Mermaids & Japanese Bridges.Ž Inspired by the Nortons proximity to the ocean, Mr. Wynne is incorporating silkscreened wallpaper and his signature glass-beaded drawings that reference life above, near, and under the sea. This is the second site-specific artwork commissioned for the lobby; the first was Jose Alvarezs Vibrating Strands of Energy.Ž Caf 1451 also will undergo a transformation with new colors and designs. The closing also will be used to reinstall artwork from the Museum Collection, and for general maintenance inside and outside the building in preparation for the 2012-2013 season. The first new exhibition of 2012-2013 opens on Sept. 27 with the inaugural Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers, an international, biennial showcase and award for emerging photographers. The five finalists for the prize are featured in this exhibition and were selected by a panel of five internationally known artists. The finalists are Analia Saban, based in Los Angeles; Nin Solis, Mexico City; Eunice Adorno, Mexico City; Mauro DAgati, Palermo, Italy; and Bjorn Veno, London. In December, one will be awarded the Rudin Prize of $20,000. The prize is named after the late Lewis Rudin of New York City, and is generously sponsored by his daughter, Beth Rudin DeWoody.

CLOSED FOR VACATION REOPENING LATE SEPTEMBER NEW LOCATION Come visit us in late September Emphasizing children and religion OPENING SOON! A22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY What if the complicated world of relationships was much simpler than we imagine? I spent the past weekend with a group of friends at a beach house along the shore. One night after dinner, I sat paging through a typical womens magazine full of make-up tips and diet-ing advice and the obligatory tricks for how to seduce a man. Its always the same story,Ž I said to the other women seated near me. What kind of shoes should I wear to make a guy like me? How do I make my man happy in bed?Ž The young women laughed and rolled their eyes. The husband of one of the women, tinkering with his computer in the corner, chimed in. Let me answer those for you,Ž he said. Higher heels. And oral sex.ŽWe all tittered and turned back to our reading material, but I couldnt get what he said out of my head, mainly because he was right. Its amazing how we manage to make something so easy seem so difficult.In the wake of the debate over whether women can have it all, Ive watched my friends „ professional women in their early 30s who often spoke wistfully of marriage and starting a fam-ily „ worry over the details of how to make a partnership work. Ive seen them convince themselves that mean-ingless flings are the way to go. They claim that marriage, or even a commit-ted relationship, is just too complicated. Im currently reading a fascinating guide from the doyenne of good taste for The Times of London, Lucia van der Post. In her book, Mrs. Van der Post includes a lovely chapter on love and marriage where she chronicles some of the lessons shes learned from her own long and successful relationship. Inter-estingly, she addresses just this debate shared by youngish women today. Women can earn their own livings, have a perfectly satisfying social life, enjoy the pleasures of sex and even have children without tying the knot,Ž Mrs. Van der Post writes. But she tells the story of a successful but lonely career woman who spoke wistfully of a col-league who left the firm to get married and have children. Underneath (the woman) felt a deep longing that was something she couldnt help, an old bio-logical recognition of the need to bond, of one man to commit to one woman, and to create a safe haven for each other and their children. A longing, too, to be . safely gathered in „ something that marriage in its best and most reassuring form can do.Ž I think my friends „ the ones who worry that a steady relationship may not be for them „ would recognize this longing. Im pretty sure they carry it in themselves, too. Some-times I wonder if they dont pur-posefully muddy the waters and use their fretting to hide their deep disappointment that it hasnt happened for them yet. Perhaps what we need is less intellectualizing, less think-ing-it-through, and more of a willingness to be steady, to be still, to let the waters settle so we can see clearly what it is we want. Ill bet well see that its not that complicated at all. Q f i t t i c t artis SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSLove’s muddied waters

South got to four hearts doubled on the bidding shown, and West led a diamond, won by East with the queen. East shifted to a trump, on which South played the nine. West could have taken the trick with the ten, but, in an effort to mislead declarer, he won the nine with the queen. The benefit of Wests clever play could be seen by what happened next. After ruffing Wests diamond return, South played a low trump, expecting to find the suit divided 3-2. In that case, he would have gone down only one. But West won the second trump lead with the ten and cashed his A-K, extracting all of declarers remaining trumps. East had discarded three spades as the trumps were played, so when West next led a diamond, East was able to score four diamonds before conced-ing the last three tricks. Declarer thus lost five diamonds as well as four trump tricks to finish down six for a loss of 1,700 points! South would, of course, have done much bet-ter had he not fallen into the trap so artfully laid by West. Had he not led another trump, he would have gone down two instead of six, losing only 500 points. Note that Wests fine play of winning the nine of trumps with the queen had everything to gain and nothing to lose. He realized that his queen play might induce declarer to expect a 3-2 trump division, and he also knew that his four natural trump tricks would remain intact even if South avoided further trump leads. Wests attempted decep-tion was surely not profound, but it was extraordinarily effective. Q


A24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIts a surprise.Ž Well beyond what he imagined when he began creating his characters, the ones readers embraced as if they were real. That may be the key, Mr. Smith said, to the novels enduring popularity. Its just about the people,Ž Mr. Smith said. To capture a sense of the love this book generates, go to the authors web-site: Look at the guest book. Read some of the more than 600 comments of undying love for the book and its char-acters „ the plucky MacIvey family, the former slave Skillit, the dogs Nip and Tuck, the hired hands, the Semi-noles. Every student in this state should have to read it before they gradu-ate high school,Ž Mark McKinney of Gainesville wrote on the websites guestbook. Readers of the novel also love the man who created it, who opened a win-dow into the harsh-yet-beautiful world of 19th century Florida. Just read through the 31 pages of comments on the website about the book, which spans the Civil War and concludes in 1968. Heres Georgette Beck of Port St. Lucie: This is a masterpiece. God bless.Ž Rob Dwyer of Fort Meade said hes read A Land RememberedŽ 16 times and I take it every deer season to the Peace River.Ž Susan Scott of Merritt Island wrote, Thank you, Mr. Smith, for the greatest book Ive ever read.Ž Ed Horne of Fort Myers commented, Sent it to my son in The Marines in Afghanistan.Ž The online accolades keep going almost endlessly, which is what fans wish the 403-page novel was: endless. I wish it was 10,000 pages long,Ž James Mann of Melbourne wrote.Emotional impactReaders get swept up in the saga, in the characters and the startling changes that several decades brought to the state. My tears were real at the end of A Land Remembered,Ž wrote Marie Jones of Myakka City. Shes not the only reader who cried.I needed to go and drink another glass of water,Ž wrote Susan Scott of Merritt Island. I am dehydrated from crying.Ž One doesnt even have to be a Floridian or even an American to appreciate the storytelling skills. Theres this from Avangkaew Wadchuey of Thailand: It is my first Eng-lish novel that I had read. ƒ It is fulfill-ing of knowledge. I never thought I would cry when I read it, but I did.Ž Smith captures and describes a vastly different Florida, one thinly populated with pioneers and Seminoles and speckled with cattle drives and rootin, tootin, shootin real-life cowboys a long way from the Wild West. Lecia Fernandez of Sarasota wrote the book will forever change the way I look at Florida.Ž The book is viewed by readers as an heirloom, a treasure to be passed along to new generations, a painless history lesson about Florida. Theres this from Karen Magruder, a Gainesville school teacher: Every year, A Land Remembered is avidly read by my fourth-grade students. They cant put it down.Ž Martin Pryor of Quincy wrote, truly should be Floridas State Book.Ž Readers wish they could share it with all their loved ones. I wish my dad had lived long enough to read this book,Ž Kay Jordan Fussell of Tallahassee wrote. Diane Taylor Oswald of Marianna offered that my 101-year-old mother-in-law read it and loved it.Ž From Kim Wagner of Lake Wales: The greatest book of all time.Ž Jean Woodring of Sanibel Island looks at the novel as an exceptional gift he has given to Floridas residents.Ž In a follow-up telephone conversation with Florida Weekly, Mrs. Woodring said the book enrapturedŽ her the first time she read it. The best book Ive ever read,Ž Mrs. Woodring said.Expert confirmationPunta Gorda resident Linda Fasulo reviews Florida books for WGCU-FM, a public radio station in Southwest Florida. Through the years shes read hundreds of Florida books. When Florida Weekly asked her to name her most beloved Florida book, she didnt hesitate. Well, A Land Remembered is my No. 1,Ž Mrs. Fasulo said. And not just her favorite Florida book. Thats probably No. 1 all-time favorite,Ž she said. Mrs. Fasulo believes the book resonates with readers for several reasons … history, sense of place, vivid characters, lively story-telling. It all, in the end, may come down to those characters, the people Mr. Smith created, the ones that readers spend hours getting to know. They fight off varmints and desperadoes and meet their future spouses and see other family members die, and they race horses and go to dances and rescue each other, and they grow old and die. Theyve become your family,Ž Mrs. Fasulo said.The twilight yearsThe author who created the family has battled health problems in recent years, most notably prostate cancer and emphysema. Hospice kicked him out,Ž his son, Rick, said of his father, who may be as plucky and tough as his characters. Patrick Smith lives in his Merritt Island home near the end of his story, but still basking in praise. The Tampa Bay Times recently ran a first-rate profile of him. He has received the 2012 Florida Lifetime Achievement Award for writing. In 2011, Florida Monthly named A Land RememberedŽ Floridas best book for the 10th consecutive year. I never thought it would win so many honors,Ž Mr. Smith said. But its the book that everybody loves, from 101-year-old mothers-in-law to what Rick Smith said is most sur-prising: Kids go head over heels for the book.Ž The popularity of the book was a surprise. He never expected it,Ž Rick Smith said of his father. The stories of cattle drives across Florida may seem unlikely, but it was a part of Florida life in the 19th century. You cant imagine it ever happened,Ž Rick Smith said. His father recreated the challenges and hardship of those drives with his words. And he did it in accessible style. Its not like trying to read James Joyce,Ž Rick Smith said. The younger Mr. Smith said hes heard of elderly Floridians who wanted the book read to them on their death beds. People passed away while somebody was reading A Land Remembered,Ž Rick Smith said. Florida Gulf Coast University professor Joe Wisdom is quoted on the authors website as saying that copies of the book Ž should be handed out with orange juice at welcome stations to anyone who crosses the state line.Ž No, it doesnt seem like well ever forget A Land Remembered.ŽAbout Patrick SmithQ Patrick Smith is a 1999 inductee into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, which is the highest and most pres-tigious cultural honor that can be bestowed upon an individual by the state of Florida. A native of Menden-hall, Miss., he holds bachelors and masters degrees in English from the University of Mississippi. He moved to Florida in 1966. Q In May 2002, Smith was the recipient of the Florida Historical Societys Fay Schweim Award as the Greatest Living Floridian.Ž The one-time-only award was established to honor the one individual who has contributed the most to Florida in recent history. Q Smith is the author of seven novels: The River Is Home,Ž The Begin-ning,Ž Forever Island, Angel City,Ž Allapattah,Ž A Land RememberedŽ and The Seas That Mourn,Ž and a story collection, A White Deer.Ž He is also co-author of the non-fiction book The Last RideŽ and author of the non-fiction book In Search of The Russian Bear.Ž Q Smith has been nominated three times for the Pulitzer Prize: in 1973 for Forever Island, which was a 1974 selection of Readers Digest Condensed Books both in the English language edition and in all of the worldwide foreign language editions; in 1978 for Angel City, which was produced as a Movie of the WeekŽ for the CBS television network; and in 1984 for A Land Remembered,Ž which was an Editors Choice selection of the New York Times Book Review. In the annual statewide The Best of Florida poll taken by Florida Monthly Magazine, A Land RememberedŽ has been ranked No. 1 Florida Book eight times. Q Smiths lifetime work was nominated for the 1985 Nobel Prize for Lit-erature. Q In 1990, Florida PBS-TV released a documentary, Visions of Nature, Pat-rick Smiths Florida,Ž which portrays his work as a writer and his on-the-siteŽ research. In 2007 Panorama Stu-dios released a documentary, Patrick Smiths Florida, A Sense of Place,Ž that has won several top film awards. Q In October 1990, Smith received the University of Mississippis Dis-tinguished Alumni Award and was inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame. In 1997, the Florida Historical Society created a new annual award, the Pat-rick D. Smith Florida Literature Award, in his honor. Q By an act of the 2006 Florida Legislature, a section of a major high-way, SR 520 running from East Mer-ritt Island across the Banana River to Cocoa Beach, was named the Patrick D. Smith Causeway. Secretary of State Sue Cobb was the dedication speaker with Sen. Bill Posey acting as emcee. Q REMEMBEREDFrom page 21 >> Name: Patrick D.

Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your support-ers stand with you. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some dif-ficult situations. And, of course, know-ing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well-being of your ailing relationship. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportuni-ties for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making deci-sions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on profes-sional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless com-ment to the wrong person „ even if its said in jest „ could delay or even derail your progress. Q BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy.

PRESENTED BY LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AS PART OF THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRES YOUTH ARTISTS CHAIR PROGRAM. ON SALE NO W!$20 ADULTS, $15 STUDENTS +++ Is it worth $10? YesAny couple that doesnt fight is lying to themselves and/or has been together so long they have their routines down pat. For Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) in Hope Springs,Ž its both. Married 31 years, they dont fight because they dont talk, and their routines are so established that theyre just going through lifes motions. The golf-obsessed, curmudgeonly Arnold is fine with this. Kay is not. They sleep in separate bedrooms and rarely touch, leaving her alone and aimless. She is so desperate to feel something again that she makes a reservation with renowned mar-riage counselor Dr. Bernard Feld (Steve Carell) in Hope Springs, Maine. Arnold expectedly doesnt want to leave the comfy confines of his Omaha home, but reluctantly agrees. What follows in director David Frankels film is an insightful look at the subtle, easy-to-miss ways that a marriage can disintegrate. Kay and Arnolds two grown children are out on their own, leaving the couple unsure what to do with one another now that its just them. And so they grow apart, to the point where an indif-ferent kiss before he leaves for work in the morning is just about the only con-tact they have. Their sessions with Dr. Feld are probing, uncomfortable and appropriately awkward. There are no easy answers, and a reluctant Arnold is a point of frus-tration for both Kay and us viewers alike. We know the sooner he comes around the sooner they can be happy again, but Frankel doesnt make anything easy, and in the long run both the movie and the couple are better for it. Hope SpringsŽ is perfectly cast, though admittedly wed be saying the same if Jeff Bridges accepted the role of Arnold when it was offered to him. Funny man Carell smartly plays things straight and leaves the heavy work to Streep and Jones, both of whom are up to the task. The brilliance here is in the small details: Note the way Streep makes Kay very self-conscious by frequently adjusting her clothes, and how she always has a quietly pained look on her face. And watch how Joness Arnold doesnt even look at Kay in the morning as they go through their morning routine. He loves her but hes numb to her, and small details such as these make it all feel true. One of the smart things about Vanessa Taylors script is its avoidance of easy conflict. Lest you think otherwise, it is not an inability to perform that prompts Arnolds resistance to his wife. He also hasnt been unfaithful, even if his mind has wandered from time to time. The exclusion of these two things allows the story to have more integrity and remain relatable for all couples, even those with-out extreme dysfunction. Indeed, anyone whos ever been married knows all marriages have their con-flicts, and the strength of the union determines how well the couple will work through their issues. This is what we see in Hope Springs,Ž and its some-thing that all couples „ young and old „ can relate to. And if youre one of those youngsters who thinks, thatll never happen to me/us,Ž mark your words you, nave soul. I guarantee Kay and Arnold didnt think this would happen to them either. Q LATEST FILMS‘Hope Springs’ s h d a H s t dan >> In the movie Hope Springs is in Maine, but the lm was shot in Connecticut. Total Recall ++ (Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel) Bored with his monotonous life, Doug (Farrell) goes to RekallŽ to have exciting memories implanted in his mind, only to learn that hes a resistance fighter against the oppres-sive government. The first hour is slow and the story never hits on thematic elements, but the action and effects are nicely done. Rated PG-13. Farewell, My Queen ++ (Lea Seydoux, Diane Kruger, Virginie Ledoyen) Marie Antoinettes (Kruger) personal ReaderŽ (Seydoux) gives a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the early days of the French Revolution. Its an intriguing premise, but sadly not much is done with the story as its hard to care about the servants perspective. For his-tory buffs only. Rated R.The Queen of Versailles +++ (David Siegel, Jackie Siegel, Virginia Nebab) The most successful timeshare mogul in history and his former-model wife strive to build the biggest mansion in the country (modeled after Versailles in France), but cant finish it when the economy crashes. This documentary will initially wow you with the Siegels excesses, but it evolves into the story of a man trying to hold onto what hes worked so hard to build. Rated PG. Q CAPSULES

One of the jewelry designers told viewers of a late-night shopping channel that the thin layer of iridescence called patinaŽ was taken from the ancient glass and assembled flake by flake on a base used to create new jewelry. A chemical reaction causes buried glass to form the iridescent layer. We have seen 1950s bot-tles buried in a damp location that show this type of iridescence. Artists have admired this glass iridescence since the early 1800s. In 1817, a man from Scotland patented a way to iridize glass, but the glass that collec-tors like today, the kind with a golden iridescence, was made by Ludwig Lob-meyr of Austria-Hungary in 1873. Other glass artists, including Louis Comfort Tif-fany, began making their own type of iridescent glass. Some of the factories that made gold iridescent glass and the date they started are: Glasfabrik Johann Loetz-Witwe (1890), Wilhelm Kralik Sohn (1890s), Tiffany (1896), Koloman Moser (1900), Quezal Art Glass Co. (1901) and Steuben Glass Co. (1903). Carnival glass, a less-expensive and very different-looking type of iridescent glass, was made after 1908. Collectors and even experts often cannot identify the maker of a gold iridescent glass piece because the pieces are all so similar. And modern glassmakers can produce very similar glass pieces, too, so there is much confusion. The most expensive and most popular is Tiffany gold glass. Q : I would like to know the age and make of my cast-iron toy gun. Its marked TG-27Ž and has a funny nub on the bottom and a short barrel. It probably opens at the grip. My brother repaint-ed the entire gun to cover up rust. A: Your toy gun is a cap gun made by the National Toy Co. The nub on the bot-tom of the grip lifts up to show where the caps should be loaded. Although the company didnt officially incorpo-rate until 1914, your cap gun likely dates from 1911. The com-panys products were successful and sold in stores like FAO Schwarz. Since your cap gun is repainted, its value is very low. Q: Please settle a dispute between my husband and me about our small table. It has been in my family for years. We think its made of iron. It has two pierced oval shelves and a marble top and its marked B & HŽ and 1646.Ž The paint is chipped. I say it should not go to a landfill and my husband insists it should. Who is right? A: Your iron table was made by Bradley & Hubbard Manufacturing Co. Walter Hubbard and his brother-in-law, Nathan-iel Lyman Bradley, started making cast-metal clocks, call bells, lamps, chandeliers, sconces, bookends, frames, andirons and sewing birds in 1854 in Meriden, Conn. The company was sold to Charles Park-er in 1940. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Bradley & Hubbard made many types of small ornate tables and stands to hold plants, flowers, calling cards, smok-ing accessories and inkstands. The tables and stands sell today for about $150 to $350, depending on condition. All Brad-ley & Hubbard prod-ucts are collectible. Dont throw the table away. Q: I have a scrapbook that belonged to my great-grand-father and then my grandfather. Its a scrapbook all about the Villa Igiea in Pal-ermo, Sicily. It has about 145 pages and is filled with newspaper clippings from the early 1900s. We would like to keep it in the family, but wonder what it might be worth. Who might be interested in it? A: Collectors and libraries value letters, cards, documents and photographs of famous people. If the person who kept the scrapbook isnt famous, the value of material in an old scrapbook is minimal unless the photos and letters relate to a historic event. Condition is always important, too. Collectors dont like newspaper clippings as much as they like postcards, trade cards and scrapsŽ (small die-cut colored pictures). They will pay $1 to $10 for common examples and more than $100 for rarities. If your scrapbook includes more than clippings, you may find it has more value by taking it apart and donating or selling the indi-vidual photos, postcards and scraps. Tip: Do not display carnival glass made before 1910 in direct sunlight. The glass, introduced in 1907, will turn purple or brown and its iridescent finish may fade.

COURTESY PHOTO The pewter mounting with the mark of the Van Houten company helps identify this iridescent glass vase. Loetz and Kralik both used Van Houten pewter after 1890.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35 VINOWines from Alsace hit right note on hot summer daysWhile searching for that perfect wine to go with dinner these hot summer nights, consider Alsatian pinot blanc and pinot gris. These grapes produce wines that are filled with peach, pear, apricot and citrus flavors. Cool and refreshing, they pair well with many popular summer foods, ranging from light repasts to full-bodied roasts. Pinot blanc and pinot gris share a common ancestry with pinot noir, a grape that easily mutates into many clones and varieties. Grown around the world, these grapes can reach their prime when grown in Alsace. The terroir and the regional foods with which they are designed to pair make these wines spe-cial. Long and narrow, this district has many foothill and mountain vineyards, all facing south for the best exposure. Their rocky, thin soils force the vines to grow deep roots, imparting a mineral element into the wines. Equally important is the style of food enjoyed locally. As in most tradition-al wine-growing areas, the wines and local foods are closely matched. Fresh vegetables, egg dishes and seafood, along with hearty meats and sausages comprise the local diet, and winemak-ers have developed wines that pair well with these foods. Pinot blanc wines are light, soft and refreshing, the perfect aperitif style. They pair well with a wide variety of foods, including fresh vegetables, chicken and seafood. Pale in color, they have delicate fresh pear and peach fla-vors. In the United States, Australia and New Zealand it is known as pinot blanc. In Italy it is called pinot bianco, and in France it is one of the grapes allowed in Champagne, along with chardonnay and pinot noir. Those grown in the Alsace, however, are the most intense in flavor. Pinot gris is a rich and powerful wine, the fullest bodied white produced in Alsace, and is a great alternative to red wine, standing up well to juicy meats and barbecues. Called pinot grigio in Italy, the resemblance ends there. In Alsace the wine has a distinct aroma of smoke and mushroom, full fruit flavors and a round feeling in the mouth. Rich in peach, pear and honey flavors, it ranges in sweetness from medium dry to dry, ending with a nice long finish. These wines are definitely made to go with foods, whether light appetizers or seafood with pinot blanc, or full-bodied sausage or roasts with pinot gris. Well worth searching for in the mar-ketplace, there are many small-volume, high-quality producers making these wines. Here are some food suggestions, followed by my wine picks. Q Pinot blanc pairings: Deviled eggs, crabcakes, chicken alfredo, chick-en sat with peanut sauce, grilled white pizza with basil and summer squash, grilled vegetable sandwiches using any combination of seasonal veggies (egg-plant, zucchini and onion, for example), quiche, steamed asparagus with feta, lemon and olive oil dressing. Q Pinot gris pairings: Salmon steaks with soy-maple glaze, whole chicken slow roasted over applewood, honey-glazed baby back ribs, flat bread with caramelized onion, pears and hazelnuts, grilled portobello caps stuffed with fon-tina, caramelized Asian pork chops.Wine Picks of the Week:Q Willy Gisselbrecht Pinot Gris 2010 ($20): Rich golden in color with floral and fruit aromas, followed on the well-rounded palate with apricot and lemon flavors. This wine is medium bodied with a touch of sweetness and a backbone of mineral for balance. The long finish ends with a touch of spice. Try it with glazed ham, curries or spicy food. Q Paul Blanck Pinot Gris 2010 ($26): Light golden in color, with a floral nose of jasmine and honeysuckle. The flavor is bright with acidity and features white peach and pears. Medium dry and medium bodied, this wine has a distinct and lengthy finish, ending with a crisp mineral note. Serve it with a pasta seafood dish or with roasted pork. Q Domaine Rolland Schmitt Pinot Blanc 2010 ($19): Pale straw in color, and starts with a light smoky and floral nose. The palate shows typical orchard fruit flavors with peaches and apricots, tinged with citrus. Fresh, clean and spicy, with a brisk acidity, this one is easy to pair with seafood, especially scallops or shrimp, or to enjoy as an aperitif. Q Domaine Mittnacht Freres Pinot Blanc Terre DEtoiles 2011 ($18): Light straw color with floral, peach and apricot on the nose. The aromas follow through to a light citrus acidity on the palate and an interesting spicy floral finish. Try this with chicken salad or a roasted chicken entree.
