her 20s. That has not kept her from pursuing life as an entrepreneur and designer, among other things. And it has not prevented the Palm Beach Gardens woman from helping other blind people to empower themselves. Witness the Beyond Blind Institute.The non-profit institute, which for nearly two years has helped visually impaired people improve their health and to build confidence through exercise and cooking classes, counseling and dance, hopes to draw attention to its servic-es and to raise money Oct. 6 at Beyond Blind Fest 2012 at Abacoa Town Center. The day begins at 7:30 a.m. with a 5K run/walk, which will be followed by a Health & Wellness Fest. There also will be music, including performances by Billy Bones, classical pianist David Crohan, fingerstyle guitarist Rich-ard Gilewitz and singer Rob Jones. The day she meets with a reporter, Mrs. Gugel is showing off society page cover-age her organization has received. She walks boldly, and her handshake is firm. She looks you in the eye. But all she has is limited peripheral vision. MICHAEL DIMEGLIO WAS IN HIS 60s the last time he had his picture taken for his drivers license. Now hes 97. He still drives and he has three years to go before his license expires. It wouldnt surprise me, the way Florida does things, that at 100 years old, they would renew my drivers license,Ž says the man who has not taken a driving test since he moved to the state in 1978. In Florida, Ive never had to go in for a new license. They mail it to me automatically ƒ They could be mailing me a driv-ers license, renewing my drivers license at 100 years old.Ž Mr. DiMeglio does not believe in this process. He believes in driving tests. If they were to call me up Fest in Abacoa offers a vision of hope for the blind 20/50 20/50This vision, or worse, means you are referred to an eye specialist before getting a license. 155 155Mature drivers who had their licenses revoked in 2011. 17,657 were screened. 4Percentage of drivers over 80 with Florida licenses. 631,109Mature drivers in Florida over the age of 80.

The Palm Beach Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will take place Oct. 13 at the Meyer Amphitheatre, 104 Datura St. in West Palm Beach. The walk will begin at 9 a.m. This years inaugural Put On Your Pink BraŽ campaign is one part of the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer pro-gram. Money raised provides up-to-date breast cancer information, ensures everyone has access to breast cancer screening and treatments „ regardless of income „ and provides services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Breast cancer has a profound impact on Floridians as the state ranks second in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and third in the number of related deaths,Ž said Carla Flores, associate director of the Palm Beach chapter of the cancer society. But out of these grim numbers comes the hope we create when we gather and work together to fight this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is not only a way to raise funds for that fight, but also gives us a chance to gather to celebrate survivors.Ž Since 1972, the cancer society has invested nearly $323 million in breast cancer research grants, resulting in many of todays breast cancer treat-ments.

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.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe 47 percent blunder amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The best defense of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneys instant-ly notorious 47 percentŽ remarks at a May fundraiser is that he made a bad point badly. Romney mixed up three separate groups: the roughly half the country that will inevitably support President Barack Obama, the half that doesnt pay federal income taxes and the half that receives government benefits. Then he declared them all a collective lost cause. He will never win them over, or con-vince them to take responsibility for their lives. Next question. In reality, these are distinct categories. Many Obama supporters are rich. We can be certain the attendees at the presidents recent fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay-Z in New York City have hefty tax bills. Meanwhile, many of Romneys supporters „ especially the elderly „ dont pay federal income taxes and receive government benefits. The contention is that if people arent paying federal income taxes, they are essentially freeloaders who will vote themselves more government benefits knowing that they dont have to pay for them. As conservative writer Ramesh Ponnuru has pointed out, theres no evi-dence for this dynamic. It is true that the number of people without a federal-income-tax liability is up; it was just 28 percent in 1950. It is mainly the poor, seniors and lower-income families with children who dont owe income taxes. The poor lean heavily Democratic, but thats always been so. Seniors, on the other hand, have been swinging Repub-lican, and theres no indication that families with children are becoming more liberal. Many workers who dont pay federal income tax pay other taxes, including the payroll tax. Just 18 percent of tax filers escape both the income and pay-roll taxes. People who arent paying income tax dont think of themselves as freeloading takers.Ž An April Gallup poll found more discontent with taxes among people making less than $30,000 than any other income group. The deeper problem with the 47 percentŽ argument is that it is right-wing Elizabeth Warrenism. Warren wants to tax rich people as a statement of our patriotic commitment to one another; some conservatives evidently want to tax the poor and seniors for the same reason. If you arent paying taxes „ or arent paying enough „ you are a sub-citizen. How does this look in the real world? If a couple earning $35,000 with two kids has no income-tax liability thanks to various exemptions, deductions and credits (the child tax credit has been especially important in removing fami-lies from the rolls), how much should we tax them to get them to shape up and fly right? How much do they have to pay the Internal Revenue Service to learn a lesson in basic civics? This tendency represents a backdoor return to Country Club Republicanism, with the approval of part of the Repub-lican base. Fear of the creation of a class of takersŽ can slide into disdain for people who are too poor „ or have too many kids or are too old „ to pay their damn taxes. For a whiff of how politi-cally unattractive this point of view can be, just look at the Romney fundraising video. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Romney has a jobs plan … for ChinaFreeport, Ill., is the site of one of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates. On Aug. 27, 1858, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas debated there in their race for Illinois U.S. Senate seat. Lin-coln lost that race, but the Freeport debate set the stage for his eventual defeat of Douglas in the presidential election of 1860, and thus the Civil War. Today, as the African-American presi-dent of the United States prepares to debate the candidate from the party of Lincoln, workers in Freeport are staging a protest, hoping to put their plight into the center of the national debate this election season. BainportŽ is the name the workers have given their protest encampment. A group of workers from Sensata Tech-nologies have set up their tents across the road from the plant where many of them have spent their adult lives work-ing. Sensata makes high-tech sensors for automobiles, including the sensors that help automatic transmissions run safely. Sensata Technologies recently bought the plant from Honeywell, and promptly told the more than 170 work-ers there that their jobs and all the plants equipment would be shipped to China. You may never have heard of Sensata Technologies, but in this election sea-son, youve probably heard the name of its owner, Bain Capital, the company co-founded and formerly run by Mitt Romney. When they learned this, close to a dozen Sensata employees decided to put up a fight, to challenge Romney to put into practice his very campaign slo-gans to save American jobs. They traveled to Tampa, joining in a poor peoples campaign at a temporary camp called Romneyville (after the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression). They organized a petition drive, getting 35,000 people to join their demand to Romney to call on his former colleagues, to save their jobs. Since Freeport is close to two swing states, Iowa and Wisconsin, they traveled to a Romney rally and appealed directly to him there (ironically, for appealing to Romney to save their jobs from being sent to China, the Sensata workers were jeered as communists at the rally, and removed by U.S. Secret Service). Then the workers established Bainport. Set up at the Stephenson County Fairgrounds, with the full support of the community, the workers have spent more than two weeks camped out, with a dozen tents, a large circus-style tent serving as a covered gathering space and command center, and an outdoor kitchen. They built a stage with a ban-ner reading, Mitt Romney: Come to FreeportŽ and signs like Romney does have a jobs plan ... too bad its for China.Ž Behind the stage they have built a small bridge that carries the workers across a gully to and from their remain-ing shifts at the plant. One night last week, we arrived at Bainport at 10:30. A group of work-ers and their supporters were sitting around the campfire. I talked to them, one by one, before they made their way to their tents. Dot Turner had to be at work at 5 a.m. I asked her how long shed been at the plant. For 43 years. I started in 1969. I was 18 at the time,Ž she told me. Her message to Romney was clear: If he was really concerned about the American people and if he was concerned about creating jobs, the 12 million jobs that he always uses as his stump speech, he could create this job by leaving it here.Ž While Romney has yet to visit Freeport, a campaign spokesman addressed the issue of Sensata, turning the issue around, onto President Barack Obama: Despite the president being invested in Sensata through his personal pension fund, and the government owning a major Sensata customer in GM, Presi-dent Obama has not used his powers to help this situation in any way.Ž Obama didnt respond to the specific charge, but on the campaign trail, he hits Romney hard on Bain outsourcing jobs to China: When you see these ads hes running, promising to get tough on China, it feels a lot like that fox say-ing, You know, we need more secure chicken coops.Ž Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp visited Bainport on the morning that we broadcast our Democracy Now!Ž news hour from the camp. He told me about his hopes for the workers, reflecting on his hometowns long history: Free-port is the home of the Lincoln-Douglas debate site. Weve invited both cam-paigns, President Obama and Governor Romney, to come to Freeport and debate in an old-style campaign. It would be a perfect opportunity for him, the archi-tect who mastered how to send jobs over offshore, to come back here and reverse the trend. Were 65 miles from Paul Ryans hometown of Janesville. Its a perfect location to come, have your feet on the ground and meet a cross-section of America.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.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 | PET TALESCompanion animal tips and tidbits BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickQ Looking for a way to get your children off the couch and more active out-doors? A survey of 1,500 people by the Purina company „ both those who own dogs and those who dont „ revealed that children raised in families with dogs are 20 percent more likely to spend time in active, outside play than those in fami-lies without canine companionship. Q The recent recall of peanut butter due to salmonella contamination is sig-nificant to pet owners because it is often used to hide pills, making it easier to get pets to take their medications. More than 30 people in 19 states have been sickened by contaminated products, which all use nuts from New Mexico-based Sunland farms. Updates and a list of affected products are on the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations website, Dogs and cats can become ill by eating salmo-nella-contaminated products, and illness can be transmitted to people from pets. Q While most pet lovers are aware of the challenges of rehoming cats and dogs, relatively few give much thought to parrots. The challenge of caring for these pets is made more difficult because of medical and behavioral issues „ and the fact that many parrot species kept as pets have potential life spans as long as human ones. The nonprofit Gabriel Foundation in Colorado ( has for years maintained a model shelter and sanctuary for these pets, with a variety of services including lifetime care for parrots who cannot be successfully transitioned to new homes. Q The lasting effects of pet loss may be underestimated, with a fifth of respon-dents in a poll saying they didnt current-ly have a pet because the loss of their last one was too painful. The response came as a surprise to the American Humane Association, which polled 1,500 non-pet owners and past pet owners, asking why they did not currently own a dog or cat. Other respondents cited the time and expense of keeping a pet. Q Complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that the number of pets sickened or killed by chicken jerky treats have topped 1,300, and the agency recently expanded its investigation after receiving additional reports of illness caused by Chinese treats made of yams or sweet potatoes. To date, there have been no recalls, and no indication of what the problem could be. Q Families with a dog are more likely to have children who engage in physical activity.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYand say, Mike, we need you to take a driving test to renew your license, I would be happy to, Id be more than happy to,Ž says the semi-retired Catho-lic Church deacon living in Port Char-lotte. Though you cannot see his hearing aids in his license photo, Mr. DiMeglio says they were there; he lost his hear-ing in the military, exposed to too many firing zones in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Though he wears glasses, he says his visions perfect, just had it examined.Ž Though he looks as if he may have lost weight since his license photo and may have punched holes in his belt to fasten it tighter, Mr. DiMeglio maintains he has weighed 135 pounds since he was on active duty. Now on the cusp of becoming a cente-narian, the methodical man wakes up every morning and does a half hour of sit-ups and push-ups. If perchance his renewed license arrives in the mail as he turns 100 and he still feels sharp and wiry, he will drive. But he undertones this admis-sion, saying, If I got in that car today and I went down the street and I start-ed getting a little woozy and I didnt know where I was at and I couldnt read the signs, I would know it was time to call my son and say, Mike, theres the car and here are my car keys.Ž As of January, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports there are 631,109 driv-ers driving over the age of 80. These drivers account for about 4 percent of all licensed drivers in the state. These drivers are not required to take a driv-ing test to renew their license. In 2004, Florida began requiring drivers over 80 to pass a vision test upon renewal of their license. Despite this legislation, their presence on the road seems persistent, as five years ago driv-ers over 80 made up 3.7 percent of the total driving population; 10 years ago, 3.8 percent. Children of these aging drivers, directors of assisted living facilities and geriatricians alike question: Has this rudimentary vision test been a moot measure? Should there be more? Looking at the calendar year for 2011, the state reports 17,657 mature drivers (drivers 80 and over) were screened for vision. Of these, 3,416 drivers were determined to have conditions requir-ing an earlier follow-up exam than the standard renewal period of six years. Only 155 drivers had their license renewal revoked. Such numbers perpet-uate the general perception that once you have your license in Florida, you have it forever. We do what the legislature has asked us to do,Ž says Jean Sholl, branch manager for the Palm Beach County Tax Collector. Ms. Sholl oversees clerks who conduct vision tests and issue license renewals. Motorists step up to open counters and press their fore-heads against an eye machine,Ž that black-box kaleidoscope of letters, to have their vision checked. If someone is having difficulty or a problem with one eye, say they start with a 20/70 reading, we let them work their way down, especially if theyre just missing two letters,Ž Ms. Sholl says. By the time they reach the bottom line, theyll pass. Its not that they cant see, theyre just nervous.Ž In Florida, if you are blind in one eye, you can drive. As long as your other eye has an acuity reading of 20/40 and your combined vision reads 20/40, you will be eligible to receive a drivers license. Applicants who have 20/50 vision or worse in either eye are referred to an eye specialist. But at the counter of a Florida driver license office, visual acuity tests are no more than a step-right-up, look-straight-ahead, tunnel-vision analysis. To some, the loss of peripheral vision associated with aging may warrant more tests. Ms. Sholl maintains, as state policy instructs her, If they can see 20/40 they dont need more tests and their vision is OK to drive.Ž If clerks question the ability of someone standing at their counters, they consult Ms. Sholl. Recently, a woman in her 90s came in to renew her drivers license. The woman was accompanied by her daughter. When the clerk asked her questions, the woman would turn to her daughter before answering the clerk. The clerk turned to Ms. Sholl. Can she answer your questions?Ž Ms. Sholl asked the clerk. Well, yes,Ž said the clerk. But she talks to her daughter first.Ž Does she have any physical disabilities?Ž Ms. Sholl further asked. Well, no,Ž said the clerk.The state renewed her license.She seemed to get around OK. She had all her faculties about her,Ž Ms. Sholl says. She was just old. We dont make someone take a driving test just because theyre old.Ž The state reserves the right to issue a driving test if there are concerns regarding an individuals ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Its not about age,Ž stresses Ms. Sholl. Its about physical ability at any age.Ž Living at South Port Square, a continuing care retirement community, Mr. DiMeglio does not have to drive. Chauffeured town cars are available. Sunday mornings; he and his wife take the bus to church. But when it comes to grocery shopping or doctors appointments, Mr. DiMeglio sits behind the wheel. Anything necessary for me and my wife and for our health, I drive,Ž he says in an almost antiquated tone of chivalry and conviction. His driving means the world to him, or rather, more than the world, as his driving allows him to keep up his ministry. Once a month, Mr. DiMeglio drives to lead a religious service for the Knights of Columbus. Once a week, he drives to the homebound, a 97-year-old bringing communion to those who are no longer able to go to Mass. Its important to me,Ž he says. Mr. DiMeglio admits there are residents in his community who should not be driving, but when he expresses his concern, You know, Ive been watch-ing you drive. You may want to give it up, he hears resentment, Dont you tell me, or Its none of your business. So Mr. DiMeglio does what deacons do: he prays. When family members start to question the driving abilities of their aging loved ones, they tend to go running to the state. Ive had families come in here and say, I cant do it. Can you take their license away? They wont give it up. They shouldnt be driving,Ž says Ms. Sholl, throwing her hands up in the air as she speaks. I tell them to fill out one of these,Ž she says, handing over a medical reporting form. This form allows any person to report another persons dis-ability to drive, confidentially. To children of aging drivers who may be wondering when to take the keys away or how to take the keys away, Dr. Michael F. Raab, geriatrician, suggests transitioning them into a new routine rather than taking any abrupt action. Youre not going to be able to take the keys away without a big fight,Ž Dr. Raab says. A better way would be to get a sense of their schedule. Be with them when they need to be taken plac-es, Oh, you go shopping on Tuesdays? Im here. Lets go together.Ž Then reinforce their willingness to let you drive with your gratitude, Im so glad we had this time together. I love when you tell me stories about the past. Thank you.Ž Dr. Raab also suggests appealing to their sense of family and generosity, I need you to help me. Your grandson needs your car. Youre not using it that often.Ž Try to keep your appeals in a help meŽ context, because as Dr. Raab says, Theyre going to want to help their children.Ž Or you can show them the money. Break down how much money they would be saving „ car payments, car insurance, gas „ by not driving. For the number of places mature drivers drive to, taxis typically cost less. But when senior drivers think of losing their license, Dr. Raab says their immediate response is fear: We wont have any food to eat. We wont be able to see our doctors. We wont be able to socialize at the yacht club. We wont be able to exercise at the wellness center.Ž Considering how these drivers may only drive two miles twice a week to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy, Dr. Raab says it can be hard to justify taking their license away. So he shares an analogy he often hears in the medi-cal field to help visualize the issue. The rate of accidents from people driving with dementia equals the rate of accidents of people driving drunk,Ž he says. A lot of people drive home safely when theyre drunk. Thats cer-tainly not something we want people doing or want to advocate in any way. But just as many people are driving home demented. We certainly dont want that either.Ž Practicing through Lee Memory Care in Fort Myers, Dr. Raab administers cognitive tests to evaluate an indi-viduals memory, motor skills and field of view. When patients perform poorly on these tests, such results translate to unsafe driving. People feel if they havent driven into a wall, theyre competent to drive,Ž says Dr. Raab, who sees the issue of aging and driving as a societal problem, but one thats preventable. Should there be required driving tests?Ž he asks of the state system. There probably should be. But you could get around it a lot easier if you were to expand the vision tests.Ž By expanding the current vision exams to test peripheral vision, Dr. Raab believes the state would catch many unsafe drivers who are slipping through the cracks. He feels this notion would be better than the current pre-dicament and quicker and cheaper than physical driving tests or computer simulated alternatives. Computers scare Jacqueline Hadley. She did not grow up with computers. If she had to take a driving test on a computer, she would find it upsetting. Truth be told, she finds mandatory, age-based driving tests discriminating. But she does fancy Dr. Raabs proposi-tion to expand the vision test. Its a great idea, really,Ž says Mrs. Hadley, who feels driving should be determined by doctors more than by the state. They know whether you should be driving or not. The state should not say you cant drive anymore because of your age. Thats horrible. But if a doctor says it, thats good enough for me.Ž Mrs. Hadleys doctor says her visions still good enough to drive. Nonetheless, the 81-year-old has decided to sell her car and give up her drivers license. In my own mind, I know its time to quit. Its not comfortable for me to drive,Ž she says. I can see very well, but it just bothers me. Distance is getting foggy ƒ Its time for me to give up driving and go to a place where I dont have to drive. Thats what I feel.Ž Mrs. Hadley and her husband, Lawrence, are moving from Lantana to Fountainview, a resort-style senior liv-DRIVERSFrom page 1CATHY GRAY / FLORIDA WEEKLY Jacqueline Hadley, 81, has decided to give up her driver’s license. Her husband, Lawrence, 82, right, was diagnosed with dement ia and his license was revoked. They are moving to a senior living community in West Palm Beach. By the numbersAs of January, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports the following number of licensed drivers over the age of 80 by county: >> Brevard: 22,100 >> Charlotte: 10,087 >> Collier: 16,314 >> Lee: 25,325 >> Palm Beach: 68,283


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 NEWS A9ing community in West Palm Beach. Mr. Hadley was diagnosed with demen-tia in 2004. His license was taken away this past spring. Thats when Mrs. Had-ley took over driving. The two have been married 61 years. After their retirement, they spent seven years driving around in an RV and loved it. I was pleased to sit beside him,Ž Mrs. Hadley says of her husband. Thats the way our life has always been. He was the driver.Ž Mrs. Hadley sees many drivers her age on the road who are conscientious drivers. I think its wonderful theyre still able to drive and Im happy for them, that they still can, because I know all of us want to, we all need to, just as much as young people do.Ž But she also sees many drivers her age who she considers dangerous. If youre unsure about (driving), I would say thats a sign,Ž Mrs. Hadley says. If youre thinking about quitting, you should.Ž As a volunteer AARP safe driving instructor in Naples, Greg Johnson teaches drivers signs to look for as their aging bodies and minds near the time for them to give up driving. One exercise involving reaction time goes like this: Hold your pencil up over your table. Im going to give you a sig-nal. When I clap my hands, I want you to drop your pencil.Ž Mr. Johnson continues talking, then claps his hands. Theyre all over the place,Ž he says of the falling pencils. They never all go at the same time.Ž He hopes this exercise makes his students question, Should I really be driving?Ž To be frank, he says most drivers take his class to get a discount on their insurance. Many of his students are from out of state, looking for any differences in Florida laws. When I tell people, in Florida, they dont need to have a driving test ever after they get their license, everybodys shocked,Ž he says. But soon as he starts talking about choosing to retire from driving, no more eyes are on him. Everybodys looking for contacts on their table,Ž Mr. Johnson says. Nobodys head is up.Ž A different feeling overtakes the room. Mr. Johnson says he can understand this. He thinks back to his first taste of freedom. I remember when I got my bicycle. I thought, Oh, man. I can go any-where. Not really, but I thought I could,Ž he says. Then I got my car. Oh, man. I am really unencumbered now. I can go anywhere I want. Sixty years later to give it up, its not easy.Ž Teaching this safe driving class has made 64-year-old Mr. Johnson start thinking about when the time will come for him to retire from driving. He recalls one gentleman who spoke up and shared his decision with the class. He must have been in his 70s,Ž Mr. Johnson says. He said he made an agreement with his children. He said, Its up to them. If they look at me and they evaluate that Im a danger, theyre to take my keys away from me. He signed a contract. It was a done deal. Thats a pretty gutsy deal, to do some-thing like that.Ž Mr. Johnson wishes more people would do the same, he hopes he does, make a deal for safety, rather than bar-gain for freedom.

It all changed over the course of a weekend. At the age of 22, I literally left on a Friday like any great employee that was really vivacious and looking toward a career in law. Came back on Monday and couldnt see my keyboard anymore. Thats what changed. That day changed my life,Ž she said. She thought she needed glasses, but they didnt help. Mrs. Gugel was diagnosed with a form of macular degeneration; by the time she was 29, she was legally blind. This young, 22-year-old girl had to make a choice ... Visual impairment in blindness is the highest of disabilities, deficiencies that are taken from you in life. Blindness is a complete depen-dency on everything in life, whether its driving or reading or dressing yourself or taking a prescription, a pill, an aspi-rin, you have no clue,Ž she said. From that I went through maybe a month of crying and grieving of what had been told to me because I knew I was not going to be able to study law and be what I wanted to be in law because I wanted to be a prosecutor and I knew that you really do have to have vision to read body language and faces.Ž She realized she had choices to make, and that she wanted to experience as much as possible before her eyesight was completely gone. She and her hus-band, Les, have three children. She had enjoyed acting, so she taught at the Burt Reynolds Institute for The-atre Training. She was a finalist in the Mrs. Florida Pageant. No one knew I was legally blind, or had started to lose my eyesight. My family knew it „ it was at the Poinciana Playhouse, and my family was sitting in the audience. My daughter, who was probably 14 at the time, was watching with bated breath, thinking How is my mother going to see that X on that stage?Ž she said. She neednt have worried. I listened to the footsteps that went to that X, and there were about 25, 26 footsteps, so thats what I did. Thats the way I have learned to be in my life. I have taken whatever there is for me and run with it,Ž she said. She recognized that something as basic as putting on makeup and doing her hair might be difficult at some point, so she went to work for Lancme and said she became one of the companys top sales people before her eyesight diminished to the point that she needed to move on. Today, I can put my makeup on, I can do my hair sleeping „ blindfolded,Ž she said. That is the tenacity that has led Mrs. Gugel to found the Beyond Blind Insti-tute. I said I have to be able to give this back to women I see today who do not have that tenacity and the knowledge and technique of doing that,Ž she said. Her Beauty Beyond Blindness program is as much about promoting inde-pendence as it is about helping women with aesthetics. That can-do attitude led her to become an inventor. After working in interior design and realizing that she needed to climb up and down a ladder to finish tall projects, Mrs. Gugel also invented the ToolTop-per workstation, an accessory for step-ladders. In 1998, she and her husband were in Chicago to promote the ToolTopper and another invention, when she was left with severe head and neck injuries after being struck by a car in Chicago. That was another major, major turning point in my life,Ž she said. Rehabilitation took three years, and their main investor laid claim to the products. You dont look at those things as a gift, but as a tragedy. But Im still here, so its a gift,Ž she said. And she turned that gift into working with vision-impaired people. Where are you in this world if you cant see it? I am going to give you that lifeline,Ž she said. The Beyond Blind Institute provides health, wellness and educational pro-grams to 15 clients. Mrs. Gugel says the isolation of blindness can lead people into inactivity and a poor diet that cause disease, not to mention depression. The group offers such programs as Bodies Beyond Blindness, which meets at Loggerhead Fitness in Juno Beach, as well as The Sightless Chef, a partner-ship with Whole Foods in Palm Beach Gardens. There is counseling to counter the depression, as well as a dance pro-gram. The Beyond Blind Fest is designed to educate people with and without sight about the institutes programs. The health and wellness festival will offer free mobile eye exams, massage therapy sessions, skincare evaluations, bounce houses, face painting and other childrens activities. The Sightless Chef Gourmet Culinary Program demonstration will showcase the training Chef Aaron Jones provides to visually impaired members enabling them to become trained catering chefs, and the Brushes of Blindness art sale will offer artwork created by mem-bers of the Beyond Blind Institute. The event also will feature a BBI Member for A MinuteŽ challenge in which the institute will challenge guests to take a moment to walk in the shoes of a visu-ally impaired individual. Mrs. Gugel hopes the festival kicks off fundraising so she can open a perma-nent space, perhaps at a central location like Downtown at the Gardens. That can help her fulfill her mission: I want to give the best that life has to offer to those who have lost the most.Ž Q BLINDFrom page 1 >>What: Beyond Blind Fest >>When: 5k walk/run begins at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 6; health and wellness festival is 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and concerts are noon to 9 p.m.>>Where: Abacoa Town Center, Jupiter >>Cost: Registration for walk/run is $30 advance, $40 day of the event.

But when children get cancer, theres another layer of concern and commitment. Each year in the United States nearly 13,500 children and adolescents between the ages of birth and 19 are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately one in 300 boys and one in 333 girls are expected to have cancer before their 20th birthday. Now to bring the numbers closer to home, according to the research done by State Cancer Pro“ les supported by National Cancer Institute from 2005-2009, there were 791 pediatric oncology patients under the age of 20 in Florida. Pediatric oncology is a challenging “ eld in medicine. Despite the successful treatment of many children, the profession poses speci“ c challenges because childrens needs can be very different from those of other cancer patients. Along with a wide scope of medical knowledge and experience, this branch of medicine needs people equipped to meet childrens emotional and clinical needs. Those who choose the “ eld of pediatric oncology willingly devote their careers to working with children who have cancer. At the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center, we are dedicated to assisting the needs of children, adolescents and their families. The Palm Beach Childrens Hospital is the only healthcare facility in Palm Beach, Martin, Indian River, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties with a separate unit that specializes in caring for children with cancer and non-malignant blood diseases, such as hemophilia and sickle cell anemia. We offer comprehensive and supportive medical, surgical and nursing care required for the most advanced treatment of childhood cancer and blood diseases. Our team of pediatric oncologists and hematologists has been nationally recognized for the diagnosis, treatment and research of childhood leukemia, solid tumors, hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, bone marrow, immune de“ ciencies and certain genetic disorders. In addition our multidisciplinary team includes medical and surgical experts, intensively trained nurses, psychosocial support personnel and pediatric subspecialties that work together on each patients diagnosis to deliver the best treatment options possible. Even with access to innovative and progressive new treatments, The Palm Beach Childrens Hospital understands other challenges come into play with the treatment of young patients. Emotional and psychological support is needed for them, their parents and the rest of their family; as such this cornerstone of support has become an essential element to our program. The hospital and medical center is well quali“ ed and equipped to handle the unique demands of pediatric oncology. We have the resources and the heart to maintain an atmosphere where children can feel physically and emotionally safe and comfortable. SMMC is committed to supporting, treating and silencing the angst of cancer.

Q St. Mary’s children’s hospital gives total care to kids with cancer davide CARBONE CEO, St. Marys Medical Center Dr. Richard TiegenACUPUNCTURE AND ANTI-AGING PHYSICIANS GROUP 4601 MILITARY TRAIL, SUITE 205 JUPITER(561) B reast cancer is the leading cause of cancer for women in the United States. Thankfully, with early detection, many cases can be treated successfully. Unfortunately, if not detected early enough, the prognosis can worsen. Also, certain types of breast cancer are more resistant than others to conventional treatments. In cases such as these, many women seek acupuncture as an alternative treatment. Over the years, I have treated many breast cancer patients with acupuncture. Although acupuncture is not a cure for cancer, it can help in many ways. It is a well-accepted fact that acupuncture can reduce pain. Endorphins (which are powerful pain-killing neurotransmitters) are secreted during an acupuncture treatment. These natural substances can reduce the pain caused by tumors, the effects of radiation and post-surgical pain. Oftentimes these pain-controlling effects can amplify those of pain medications. In fact, endorphins work at the same nerve receptor sites as opioids. It is a great way to reduce pain without increasing medication. Certainly anxiety is part of a cancer patients life. Acupuncture can reduce anxiety. Sometimes this benefit is the greatest and most profound one. Once again, quality of life is improved without increasing medication. In fact, many times medication can be reduced. Finally, acupuncture helps to strengthen the immune system. Studies have shown that after treatment a patients white blood cell count increases. Certainly one of the best things we can do in fighting cancer is to strengthen ones immunity. So for pain, anxiety and immunity, acupuncture provides many benefits for the breast cancer patient.

Military Trail, Suite 220Palm Beach Mention this ad for a FREE CONSULTATION (an $80 value!) & Custom Herbs HEALTHY LIVINGLenore adored her parents, but had been unwilling to admit to herself they were declining. Now Lenore was forced to face the fact that shed been in denial for a very long time. She couldnt help but go back to the afternoon her mother had called her in tears. Her father couldnt remember where hed parked the car in the Publix lot. The two of them had been exhausted and distraught, searching frantically until a security vehicle pulled up to help them. When Lenore expressed concerns at the time, her parents had minimized the whole thing and had said she was overreacting. Lenore realized now, that at the time, she was just as happy to let the whole thing go. Nor had she been overly worried that her father would ask the same questions repeatedly. Heck, Lenore misplaced her car keys more times than she was willing to admit, so there shouldnt be cause for concern just yet. Lately, though, there had been more and more concerning incidents. Sometimes shed look at her parents, her eyes welling with tears, as she realized things would never be the same. She knew in her heart they could no longer live without assistance. She was worried sick how to broach the topic with them. Her parents were so proud and would hate to be a burden. Throughout the years, her father had said many times that hed rather be shot than live in a nursing home. She knew he would be devastated if she intimated that she didnt think he was capable. The time had come to consult with her siblings to consider the best way to approach this situation.As much as we try to prepare ourselves for the day our parents are no longer capable and robust, we may still find ourselves in disbelief to suddenly realize theyve become frail or not able to sufficiently care for themselves. Our parents, at the same time, may find it excruciatingly painful to face the inevitability of their own mortality. They may not want to worry us and may deny whats actually going on to minimize the extent of their limitations. Our parents have very likely enjoyed their roles as matriarch and patriarch of the extended family and have been accustomed to their independence. They may need time to grieve the loss of the roles that may have given them so much gratification and esteem. Even if they havent verbalized their concerns, many older folks have spent countless hours ruminating about what lies ahead. They may be embarrassed by their limits, and wracked with anxiety and fear about the future. They may envision horrors of physical impairment, financial ruin or gut-wrenching loneliness. They may worry how their affairs will be handled should they become impaired. It helps when we consider matters from our parents perspective to allow them to maintain their pride when we broach painful topics. As adult children, we may face a strong grieving process. It may feel like a cruel trick of fate has robbed us from the rich emotional enjoyment of a parent who is still physically present, but no longer able to relate in the same way. Finding new ways to appreciate this compromised relationship will be the challenge. Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross has famously described the stages of mourning that most people go through upon the serious illness or impending death of a loved one „ denial, anger, bargaining, depression and, finally, acceptance. People who are adjusting to the physical and emotional decline of a parent may struggle through the very same steps. Those of us who have had troubled relationships with our parents may find this grieving process complicated by layers of resentment, anger or guilt. We should remind ourselves that older people may take offense at the littlest things and may have radars up ready to take umbrage as we delicately ask them to consider assistance in the house or give up their car keys. They may be acutely sensitive to feeling demeaned if they detect the whiff of a patronizing attitude. If we reach out for their competence as we speak, our conversations are more likely to respect their dignity. The decision to broach the issue of driving is one of the most sensitive topics of all. Taking away the car keys is symbolic for many that they have lost their integrity and independence. They may stubbornly hold onto this privilege long past the point of safety, because giving in may be the last defeat. When there are delicate or polarizing issues to address, a physician or close relative who know our parents well may be a source of objectivity, comfort and support. Reaching out to our loved ones when they are still able to rationally plan for the future, and including them in planning discussions is important. Letting them know well listen to their anxieties and will support them in finding solutions should hopefully calm them tremendously. They may need ample time to adjust to their limitations; if possible, it may help to put supports in place, in stages, to ensure the older individuals sense of autonomy. If the extended family has had frank discussions throughout, there could be contingencies in place should a medical emergency arise. Some families find the guidance and support of an experienced geriatric care manager to be extremely valuable. This person should be able to objectively help the family evaluate what is needed and hopefully offer a calm, balanced perspective. In addition, they should be knowledgeable about available services and may offer options not previously considered. There are also many sources of information offered by government and social service agencies. We must remind ourselves, at all times, that this stage of life can be emotionally and physically exhausting. It will make a huge difference if we reach out for as many supports as we can to bolster our strength as we face these challenges.

A16 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTING Does the Federal Reserve print money?There are plenty of economic issues about which people can agree to disagree „ taxa-tion, the accuracy of the CPI as a measure of inflation, stock market valuation, the true level of employment. A dizzying array of factoids could support various positions on these topics. There is one economic understanding that should be clear, yet it is anything but clear, even to members of the financial community. The question is: Does the Federal Reserve Bank print money to buy trillions in financial assets? This leads to other questions: Is the Fed monetizing U.S. debt? And should you care? The short form answers are yes, yes and yes. The Fed is printing big and it is woe-fully important to U.S. citizens and foreigners holding dollars. The Chinese have already figured it out. What is the Fed buying with all that currency? After 2008s financial crisis, the Fed, through its various quantitative easing pro-grams of QE1, QE2 and QE3, has been buying all sorts of financial assets. After three years of what the Fed calls easings,Ž these assets that have been purchased now total $2.82 trillion, include mortgages and U.S. Treasury debt of $940 billion and $1.6 trillion, respectively, according to The Federal Reserve Statistical Release of Sept. 20. When the U.S. deficit run into the trillions annually, the Fed became a very mean-ingful buyer at Treasury auctions to get the U.S. deficit financed and drive down U.S. Treasury rates, thereby bringing all interest rates lower. The Fed became a big buyer of mortgages in order to lower mortgage rates, thereby helping the real estate recovery. So how was the Fed able to pay several trillion dollars for these new assets? The answer is the Fed incurred trillions in debt „ about $2.76 trillion, according to a Fed report. The Fed didnt have its own cash so it borrowed „ but from whom? Electronic printing The Fed buys U.S. debt through the government dealer banks that handle U.S. debt auctions and buys mortgages though the member commercial banks. But it does not pay these banks with a check or with greenbacks. It pays the banks by crediting their reserve accounts held at the Federal Reserve. So, for instance, if ABC Bank sells $500 million of mortgages to the Fed, then the Fed credits ABC Banks reserve account held at the Fed „ an electronic printing of money. Some major newspapers have suggested that the commercial banks have excess reserves, which are just left at the Fed for investing. The truth is the Fed is initiating the process. It is massively buying but has no means to pay and, by default, is creating huge reserve accounts for the com-mercial banks. Crediting reserves requires no paper bills to be printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Nevertheless, it is virtualŽ printing of money. The Feds $2.76 trillion liability has two major components: one is the reserves of the banks at $1.6 trillion. The other big liability is Federal Reserve Notes at $1.1 tril-lion. Those two total $2.7 trillion of its $2.8 trillion liabilities. So, what is the liability called Federal Reserve Notes? They are U.S. dollars that have been issued by the Fed to the com-mercial banks that have requested currency or actual U.S. dollars in lieu of reserves held at the Fed. The new currency is paid to the bank, the Fed debits the banks reserve amounts and then creates a liability for the dollars issued called Federal Reserve Notes. It sounds different than dollars but it isnt. Its balance sheet term means that it is now a joint obligation of the U.S. government and the Fed. In simple terms, the U.S. government borrows from the Fed. The Fed has no money to buy the debt through the bank intermediar-ies so it credits banks reserves. The banks can request currency as payment; the Fed issues the currency and then it owes the U.S. government for this currency. The Fed assumed/created this moneyprinting role in order to combat post-2008s massive destruction of credit within the worldwide lending system „ the shadow-banking sector was collapsing along with traditional bank lending. Long after the cri-sis passed, the Fed stayed as a non-normal market buyer in an attempt, however wor-thy or worthless, to stimulate growth or spur mild inflation in the face of strongly deflationary forces. You, as citizen or investor, should be concerned as it is debasing / lowering the value of the U.S. dollar. What was meant as an interim solution in a crisis has now become the lifeline to keep us alive „ it allows the budget crisis to continue and unemploy-ment to remain high. China, however, gets the picture. Holdings of treasuries by many foreign countries has grown in the past year: Japan „ up 13 percent; Caribbean Banking Centers „ up 38 percent; Switzerland „ up 61 percent; Belgium „ up 67 percent. Yes, Germany is unchanged but China actually decreased its holdings over the 12 months by 13 percent or down $165 billion. (Major Foreign Hold-ers of Treasury Securities,Ž July 2011 to July 2012) The words quantitative easingŽ sound helpful and harmless. The reality is that the Fed is accommodating a runaway U.S. deficit while you toil to earn the dollars the Fed and Treasury have agreed to depreciate. Portfolios need to consider holding alterna-tives to the U.S. dollar until the Fed stops printing and the deficit is under control.

Scheduled to open in June 2014, the new, state-of-the-art Riviera Beach Clean Ener-gy Center will generate power with 33 percent less fuel per megawatt-hour and far fewer emis-sions than the former plant, the company said in a prepared statement. Because of its extreme fuel efficiency, this plant will effectively pay for itself with fuel savings estimated at more than $1 billion over its 30-year operational life. Construction on the new energy center began in November of last year and about 20 percent of the plant has been completed. There are about 500 workers on the site currently, and FPL is approaching peak construc-tion where there will be 650 workers on site. The workers represent an economic boost to the local area. Their presence increases revenue for local real estate, restaurant and retail industries. Also, in 2015, the plants first full year of opera-tion, it is expected to provide an estimated $20 million in new tax revenue for local government services. Compared to the former plant, the new plant will cut the carbon dioxide emissions rate in half and generate power with more than 90 percent fewer air emissions without using any additional water or land. Thats the equivalent of removing approximately 46,000 cars from the road each year over the life of the plant. By installing state-of-the-art, combined-cycle natural gas turbines at several FPL plants, the company has cut fuel costs by $5.5 billion since 2001 and passed those savings on to customers. These investments have contributed to a typical FPL residential customer bill continuing to be the lowest bill out of all 55 utilities in Florida and well below the national average.

A strange brass object was auctioned in Chicago in 2011. It was identified as a mechanical wine pourer.Ž It looks like a construction toy with a rectangular armŽ made of brass rods. Its shaped to hold a bottle. The arm is at the top of a 14-inch-high H-frame made of brass rods. Turn a crank at the bottom of the frame, and the arm and bottle dip down. It was indeed a wine pourer. It was marked Yeo, Ratcliffe & Dawe,Ž so it was possible to learn more about it. The company opened in 1946 in London, and was sold in 1961. Online records of local archaeology studies proved the company was housed in a building constructed in 1415 (yes, its almost 600 years old!) and housed a wine merchant even then. The building was restored many times, and the 1946 restoration revealed an amazing his-tory. It had been a three-story building serving as a wine merchants shop and home. Parts of the original 15th-century roof, 15thand 16th-century beams, an original fireplace, an old white oak floor and 18thand 19th-century additions were found. Some of the original plaster mixed with straw was still in place. An early womans shoe and some clay pipes that were hundreds of years old also were discovered. The mechanical wine pourer dates from the recent owner „ sometime around 1950. But the brass pourer had extra value for collectors because of its time in the historic build-ing. It sold for more than $1,950. Q: What can you tell me about my electric percolator? It not only makes coffee, but can toast a slice of bread at the same time. The attached metal plate says, Armstrong Perc-o-Toaster Model PT.Ž What is the age and value? A: The Armstrong Perc-o-Toaster Model PT was made by Armstrong Electric and Manufacturing Corp. of Huntington, W.Va. The company was founded in 1899 and made table stoves, electric ranges and other electrical appliances. Your combination percola-tor-toaster was first made in 1918, and was still being made in the 1930s. A waffle iron mold, which could be inserted after removing the toast drawer, was available as an accessory. A 1931 ad in the Saturday Evening Post claimed that the Perc-o-Toaster also could cook bacon and eggs. The base of the appli-ance was made in different finishes, including nickel plate, black enamel and white enamel. The price in 1931 was $11.85. Perc-o-Toasters today sell for about $200. However, the appliance can be used only with its original cord, which has a non-standard double-plug arrangement. Q: Is there any value to the old toys given out with McDonalds Happy Meals? A: McDonalds introduced Happy Meals in 1979. The meal came in a box decorated like a circus wagon, and included a McDoodlerŽ stencil, McDonaldland character eraser, ID bracelet, puzzle lock, spinning top or McWristŽ wallet, a wristwatch-shaped wallet. Millions of Happy Meal toys have been made since then. Disney toys were first included in 1987, and Tee-nie Beanie Babies in 1997. These toys appealed to adult collectors as well as children. Toys are tested to make sure they are safe for young children before they are included in Happy Meals. A choice of a toy for a boy, a girl or a child 3 years old or under usually is offered today. Toys from McDonalds Happy Meals often are listed for sale online. Most sell for $5 or less. Q: In the mid-1980s, I bought a matching carved oak buffet, table and four chairs from a local Minnesota antiques dealer. I think she said she bought the set somewhere in the South. Theres a plaque inside one of the buffet doors that says: Wood Green Furnishing Co., Actual Makers of Good Hand Made Fur-niture, 134b High Road, Wood Green, N.22, Telephone Bowes Park 2767.Ž I can find out nothing about this furniture maker. Can you help? A: Wood Green is a district within the city of London. The Wood Green Furnishing Co. started the legal process of liquidating its assets in 1941, so your furniture was made before the 1940s. Tip: Changing temperatures bother a grandfather clock. An inside corner is the best place for such clocks.Q: I have 38 black-and-white photographs of the 1927 Rose Parade. Theres a description of each photo on the back. Theyre all 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches and in excellent condition. Are they collectible?A: Original photos of the 1927 Tournament of Roses Parade (its official name) sell online for $5 to $10 apiece. The first Rose Parade was held in 1890, but 1927 was the first year the parade was broadcast on the radio.

A22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYAs market rebounds, buying land and building again a good option heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF Local and national headlines are reporting good news almost daily about the rising real estate market, including existing homes, new homes, speculative homes and vacant land to be built on. In the last two years, I have had very few clients looking for vacant land. Part of the reason for this is that vacant land is not the easiest commodity to come by, as much of the vacant landŽ requires a tear down of an existing home. Another reason is the banks have not been willing to loan the funds to buyers for new construction unless they are willing to have a loan-to-value of 60-70 percent. Lastly, and likely the most impactful factor, is that the pricing on existing homes has been much more competitive in comparison to building a home of the same size. Clients today have been opting to remodel clearly based upon the cost of what they can purchase an existing home for and the dollar amount that they would invest in the remodel or addition type scenario „ placing their total investment at a much lower level than purchasing a piece of property and completing a new project from start to “ nish. However, with existing inventory decreasing and sales, pending sales, contracts and prices all increasing, the state of the market is beginning to take a turn. In the last two weeks I have worked directly and indirectly with four clients looking to purchase land and build a new custom home. One of those clients ” ew to our area to look at a beautiful -acre lot listed in Old Marsh Golf Club overlooking the marsh and with an abundance of privacy. He has had his eye on the property for quite some time, but he is just now feeling that the time is right to build new; again, considering the inventory in the area has come down and prices have been slightly rising on existing homes. As an example, last year there were 21 homes on the market in the community of Old Marsh Golf Club. There are currently 11 homes listed. The inventory has dropped 50 percent and if the existing homes do not meet a clients needs, it is one community that still offers approximately 20 lots available for purchase. Some of these lots were purchased at the height of the market, but others were not and are very reasonable. With building costs stabilized and somewhat of a decline in land prices, it makes sense to look into the possibility of building new again. This is the case of the second client who was looking at homes for sale and decided that they may be able to purchase land and build their dream home for a reasonable price in comparison. After meeting with a builder in the community that they have decided best “ ts their needs, they are now on to searching for their very best piece of land that they can purchase at the most competitive price. The third are existing clients who are now on their second home within one of the “ nest golf course communities in the area. Each of their “ rst two homes was purchased as existing homes; the “ rst was a complete renovation, and the second was one that needed an addition „ both purchased at great prices as true opportunities. This family is now looking at purchasing vacant land to build a new home that will ultimately provide them with the perfect living situation for years to come. Finally, other clients of mine are looking to sell an existing home and build a new home within another private country club community in the area. These clients have searched for some time, from the water to high-end townhomes, along with other gated communities and larger parcels of land. Interestingly enough, these clients are in vastly different stages of life, but are all considering the same scenario moving forward. Purchase land, design a house, and build their new home „ something that has certainly not been in the forefront for many over the past several years. New homes are again being considered, and often searched out now that inventory levels are very limited in desirable areas and pricing has become so competitive. My husband showed a home in The Loxahatchee Club where the listed home was completely renovated down to the studs, and all the client kept saying was ƒ smell the fresh paint!Ž They were intrigued by the ability to move in to something that needed no improvements and offered the feeling of new.Ž Many communities that are owned by larger developers are also beginning to build more speculative homes and models „ Old Palm Golf Club is a perfect example.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSHope for love — when you least expect itIn this age of celebrity sex scandals and glitterati faux-weddings when mar-ried politicians text pictures of their genitalia and even our religious leaders have trouble keeping it in their pants, many people say romance is dead. But there is hope for love „ and it turns up in the most unexpected places. Like my e-mail inbox. Readers sometimes write to question my judgment or taste or „ worst of all „ my grammatical skills, but recently I had the good fortune to receive a touching message from a man named Adam. He has generously allowed me to reprint his letter here. I hope it will restore your faith in love. It has mine. Dear Ms. Henderson,I dont often read articles on love, mostly because I am so completely sat-isfied in that arena that I feel no need to research further. However, your article caught my eye. I think you are correct that many people over-complicate such things. Marriage is the warm comfort of always knowing that your best friend with benefits will always be there for you. My father once expressed a concern that although I had many friends, he could not discern any one that would be my best friendŽ other than my wonder-ful wife of 23 years, Terry. I gave him the charade game sign for on the nose,Ž smiled and walked away. The more I watch other married couples, the happier I am in the choice I made to spend my life with this glowing, intelligent woman who is so deluded as to think I am someone extraordinary. Romeo and Juliet make a heartwrenching drama, but not a happy way to live. The romance and drama glorified in the media and sought by millions is probably the single biggest reason for the high level of divorce found in our society today. Home is a place of sanctuary and peace where people who love one another treat each other with love and kindness. The mechanics of how to find it are not so complex. Look for that special person with whom there is not only sexual chemistry, but is the friend who it is inconceivable that they would ever let you down. Take your time. This is the most important decision you will ever make. Get it right the first time. Sex is simple. Make it naked and fun. Old-fashioned politeness matters. Open the door for her so she knows she is still more important to you than the strangers for whom too many of us reserve our courtesy. Give her a kiss of gratitude for that dinner she was so old-fashionably will-ing to make for you. Thinking and speaking with her perspective always in the forefront of your mind rather than a competition to score ego points will pay incredible dividends over time. Save your dissen-sion for times when it really matters, and she will give it more weight when you do. I will never forget the day just before we married when Terry looked up at me with a bright cheery smile on her face, batted her big brown eyes and said, I hope you understand this mar-riage is until death do you part!Ž I think I got the better end of the deal.

Jay Becker, the former editor of this column, liked to tell this story about the time he was playing with Helen Sobel in the Masters Team-of-Four championship many years ago. The bidding went as shown, and Mr. Becker became declarer at four spades. West led the K-Q-J of hearts, South trump-ing the third heart. Mr. Beckers principal problem was how to try to avoid losing two trump tricks. Several approaches were possible. If West had the K-J-x of spades, for exam-ple, declarer could not afford to play the ace and another spade, which would allow West to score the king and jack for down one. Alternatively, if East had the K-J-x and South led the ace and another trump, the contract would still be in danger if East took the second spade and returned the jack. In that case, Mr. Becker would not be able to ruff his losing club in dummy. Then there was also the possibility that the club loser could be averted by taking a diamond finesse, or by cashing the A-K of diamonds and ruffing a diamond, hoping the queen would fall. As Mr. Becker weighed these options in his mind, he took lots and lots of time. After a while, Mrs. Sobel got up from the table, wandered around the room, came back to see whether her partner had played a card yet (which he hadnt), went off again and eventually settled down at a nearby sofa to read a magazine. Meanwhile, Mr. Beckers opponents chatted amiably, occasionally getting up to stretch or get a drink of water. Time went on. Finally, after more than 15 minutes, he decided to play the ace and another spade. When the trumps divided 2-2, he claimed the rest. Every other conceivable line of play also would have worked. Mrs. Sobel returned to the table shortly afterward and asked anxiously, Did you make it?Ž Sure,Ž said Mr. Becker, it was a laydown!Ž Q PUZZLE ANSWERSThe West Palm Beach Annual GreenMarket has something new this year „ a vendor category for all-natural, handmade dcor, in addition to the more than 75 vendors offering fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery and confectionary items, flowers, orchids, plants and trees, gourmet foods and items from local restaurants.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY NORTONFrom page 1Those finalists were nominated by a panel of world-renowned artists, each of whom selected one photographer. The five finalists are: Eunice Adorno (based in Mexico City), nominated by Susan Meiselas; Mauro DAgati (based in Palermo, Italy), nominated by Michael Rovner; Analia Saban (based in Los Angeles), nominated by John Baldessari; Gabriela Nin Solis, (based in Mexico City), nominated by Graciela Iturbide; and Bjrn Ven, (based in London), nominated by Yinka Shonibare. The winner of the biennial competition will receive $20,000 when the award, named for New York City real estate developer Lewis Rudin, is announced Dec. 4. They were asked to nominate someone who, quote, was working on the cutting edge or someone who was working at the top of their game and was not recognized for that work,Ž said Tim Wride, the Nortons William & Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photogra-phy. But Mr. Wride did not curate this show, as much as he simply curated the nominators, each of whom uses pho-tography in his or her work. Each body of work is amazing in itself,Ž said Mr. Wride. And he is right: Their choices are fascinating.Mennonites in MexicoMs. Adorno explores the life stories of a group of Mennonite women in the Mexican communities of Nuevo Ideal, in Durango, and The Onda Zacatecas. Her series of images of these women, titled The Flower Women,Ž has a com-mon thread in the blossoms that seem to figure in each photograph. Flowers have become a common denominator among these women: flowers appear in their dresses, in their treasured keepsakes, in their names, and in their gardens,Ž Ms. Adorno wrote in her artists statement. Ms. Adorno comes from a photojournalism background; it is rare that she gets to step out of that role into some-thing as personal as this project, Mr. Wride said. The Mennonite communities she visited received land grants from the Mexican government in the 1920s. Its not as if this is the first project about these Mennonite communities that ever has been done. There are other projects,Ž Mr. Wride said. What sets this apart, however, is as you look at these photographs, youll get a sense of the intimacy that Eunice is able to forge with the women of these com-munities.Ž It is a loving document of the relationships between these women, each bathed in a golden light. Once you take away the work, and once you take away the male role models „ husbands, fathers, brothers „ there really is this sub-community of women who bond in really wonder-fully intimate wonderful ways. And it was Eunice who was invited into that experience, and the photographs show it,Ž Mr. Wride said. She has an uncan-ny sense of a) light, but b) color, and between the two of them, it really does prove that beauty still counts.Ž Mr. Wride gestured at the image of two women brushing their hair. Too often, beauty doesnt get its due. This is one of those bodies of work that is both touching and infor-mative. Its got all the angles covered. It hits you not only in the gut but in the head,Ž he said.Documenting changeOther artists in the competition also find beauty, but perhaps in more diverse ways. Gabriela (Nin) Solis is documenting the change of the land in and around Mexico City as a result of the construc-tion of the Superva Sur-Poniente, a controversial highway project that crosses two protected natural areas, involves the demolition of several tra-ditional pueblos and the destruction of many low-income neighborhoods. I chose to adopt an intimate and personal perspective, where the details and vistas of the confluence of commu-nities, construction and nature drive the visual narrative,Ž Ms. Solis wrote in her artists statement. The small-scale black and white images are haunting, if only because we know the scenes as we see them here may no longer exist. Shadows fall across the doorway of a hacienda in an untitled image from Colonia de La Malinche. The street in another image is eerily empty. Mr. Wride drew comparisons to Baron Haussmanns redesign of Paris in the mid-19th century and Eugene Atgets who began to document the disappearing communities of Paris in the decades after Haussmanns plans were implemented. She is documenting whats going to happen, what is happening and some of the results of the reconfiguration of the communities and really some of the last open spaces in Mexico City,Ž he said. Thats in a historical sense. If you look at the images themselves, shes very much a woman of her time.Ž Mauro DAgati also journeys inside, though as an insider.Ž For his series, Napule Shot,Ž the photographer, who hails from Sicily, went to Naples to explore the world of organized crime, and followed the scion of a family as he went about his daily activities. There is video of music producer Carmine Sarno driving through the city and singing along with the pop soundtrack that plays on his stereo, and images of the old women of the various neighborhoods. The colors are harsh and are garish at times. Naples can be a gritty place. There is no golden light here. One large work is an assemblage of police mug shots of those accused of involvement in organized crime. Its an amazing array of young and old, charming and frightening. The profile shots show the mens heads held in position for the photos by a brace. Its an unintentional nod, if you will, to the daguerreotypes of the 19th century, and fascinating to see. But Mr. DAgati is not just a photographer. He and a group of musicians are known as the Addams Group, or Quartet, for their jazzy riff on the theme from The Addams Family.Ž His project in Naples really came about because hes looking for this insider perspective. Because of his music background, because of his knowledge of Carmine Sarnos music background, he gets the introduction and somehow gets Carmine to agree to let him follow him over the course a few years through his life,Ž Mr. Wride said. And that video?What you see, in both the video and the imagery, is Carmines trajec-tory through Naples, from the suburbs to downtown, family to family, and its a perspective that Mauro never could get without Carmines blessing, so its really an amazing look,Ž he said.High-concept artAnalia Sabans work is less about the look and more about the concept. Think silver gelatin prints in which the emulsion has been scraped into a pile, if you will, at the bottom of the image, which theoretically still should contain the information of this photo-graph,Ž Mr. Wride said. She then continues that theme onto a canvas, which raises questions about the image and the information it con-tained. What happens to that information if it is redistributed? Thats a question that viewers can ask themselves. The beauty of the work is that it is really very simple,Ž Mr. Wride said. In another image, a piece of blue tape covered the surface of a photo-graph while it was being processed. After that, a portion of the tape was removed and the exposure was allowed to continue. Its a look behind the photograph, halfway through the photograph,Ž Mr. Wride said, and it raises questions about which part of the image has more value. She paints with all these kinds of elements of pictorial strategy on one little piece of paper, which I think is brilliant,Ž he said. He is right. The work is deceptively simple, and even though its gifts are not immediately obvious, the images, or at least their concept, linger in the minds eye.Challenging imagesBjrn Ven challenges his audiences in a different way with his explorations of masculinity. Theyre about the archetypes of masculinity, theyre about the heros voyage and journey, theyre about tropes of what makes one masculine and what happens when you realize the gap between the expectations of masculine roles and the realities in life,Ž Mr. Wride said. In his artists statement, Mr. Ven writes that he tries very hard to be a licensed fool and has a burning desire to explore beyond our paradigm.Ž Three videos play in a continuous loop, and in them, the artist portrays himself in various roles as an Audie Murphy kind of war hero, a Thor Hey-erdahl-type explorer and a European-South Pacific wanderer, complete with crown. Large still images from those videos hang on the adjacent wall. The war hero is handsome and imposing, until you see the trail of spittle that drips from his mouth. Its jarring.They approach infantilism,Ž Mr. Wride said. Theyre very much about how do you develop this male persona if you are this character and at what point is this persona inbred and at what point is the persona kind of an overlay, so youll see that its some-times nonsense. And basically, that one moment of, Oh, thats the character.Ž Or in the case of this competition, thats the show.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 B5In that collaboration, as well as in Looking Glass,Ž Mr. Kato conceived the show and Mr. Mercurio composed the music and wrote the lyrics. Whats it like working together after a quarter-century? AK: We have a collaborative shorthand, where its kind of like being in a long-term relationship where you finish each others sentences. JM: We share a similar sensibility. AK: I think theres not a lot of ego with either of us because the trust is so strong. We both feel that the other has the best interest at hand, and thats why we always call our projects our babies.Ž JM: Theres this sort of theme that keeps recurring. I dont think its on purpose. Its what we find thrilling in theater. Its kind of cool to see how that has evolved.Case in point: Looking Glass.ŽJM: Its the collusion of two worlds in the piece but at the end the two worlds converge. AK: In the case of this project, its a contemporary world combined with her fantasy world. I think really thats evolved. Whenever you can take two disparate ideas, then merge them and find some way successfully to blend them, thats what becomes art. ƒ I think the reality is that if youre going to tackle a subject matter like Lewis Carrolls WonderlandŽ its because its open to interpretation because it has this hallucinogenic quality to it. John and I have always felt that not only should it be entertaining, but it should have some kind of social quality to it. We want to leave our audience changed by the end of their evening with us. JM: And the subject matter, because its loose, like Andrew said, theres room for interpretation without changing the source material too much. AK: But certainly neither of us understands what it is to be a young girl, but I think her journey is universal. Growing up today, as we witness through our conservatory kids, even though neither of us has any children, its hard to han-dle. We can see, even in the rehearsals, kids are multitasking. Theyre sitting in the corners doing their homework ... We chose the top 28 triple-threat kids. We said we are not going to treat you like kids. We are going to give you a profes-sional experience. And in turn we asked that you act like a professional. Come prepared do your homework. The kids are participating in shaping a new work. Its very gratifying.The Alice of this Looking GlassŽ is Emily Rynasko, a freshman at the Pine School in Hobe Sound, and a four-year veteran of the Maltzs Conservatory of Performing Arts. She is known to be an instinctive actress and singer who borders on being a prodigy.AK: Emily is one of these kids. I saw her originally when she came in for Palm Beach Idols (a talent competition). I referred to her as one of our peanuts because she was so tiny. What is so nice to see with Emily is how she has blossomed into someone who has a fair shake at this industry. With her talent and her dedication to her craft, she can do anything she wants. Selfishly, you want that kind of talent for your lead. She makes the piece look good. She is able to execute everything you throw at her. JM: I am struck by her fearlessness and her talent. The other night he asked her to scream across the stage. She didnt want to do it. She was embar-rassed. The next night she did it great guns. AK: It was very gratifying when she trusted us to do it, then got such a nice response. It was fun.Speaking of fun, does either man see Looking GlassŽ as something that has legs?AK: First of all, we have a commitment to do it for three years. It has a catchy score and its such a fun romp. Its got kind of classic qualities. I mean, you dont want to say that about your work, but I think it will gain popularity as it goes on. We told our shop to build it for a three-year run, so all of it will go into storage for next year, when well cast again, and maybe some of the kids will return. JM: I think its so cool that the Maltz is crating its own tradition. Its very beautiful in a way. AK: Even though this will likely be in a holiday slot, its not a holiday show. I remember going to Radio City and see-ing Petes Dragon,Ž and to go out and do something like that is magical and is fun.So, what kind of sound does that fun magic have?JM: We felt like we had a license and an obligation to create the show. Theres a pastiche element to the score, and a gospel number. The majority of the show has sort of a contemporary pop feel and it was a way to convey Alice as a contemporary girl. We wanted to keep it moving forward. It rarely stops. She learns in a fast way.For this show, Mr. Mercurio will not take a spot in the orchestra pit. Instead, he says he and Mr. Kato will watch „ and worry. About what?AK: Does the show breathe appropriately? Does it go too fast? And we wont know that until we have an audience. JM: There are orchestrated tracks that are extravagant and beautiful. And we will complement it with six musi-cians. I will just watch and sweat in the back with Andrew.Speaking of collaborations, what is next?JM: Andrew and I have signed with an independent producer for AcademyŽ and shes pursuing regional theater for that. And theres another show, The Bootlegger and the Rabbis Daughter,Ž set in Prohibition era New York. There have been readings for that. We just did the first act and it went extremely well. The audience was very receptive. AK: Ive been threatening John with a new idea for a while. JM: Then hell show up with a foamcore head and bangles ƒ A K: And it becomes like a show in Johns living room. Were not joking.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 +++ Is it worth $10? YesTake Glee,Ž lose the preaching, add college naughtiness and you have Pitch Perfect,Ž a toe-tappin good time that keeps the energy and laughs consis-tently high throughout. Set in the surprisingly cutthroat world of collegiate a cappella competi-tions, the story focuses on aspiring DJ Beca (Anna Kendrick), one of the new-est members of Barden Universitys all female Barden Bellas. Other principals include Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), who calls herself that so the twig bitches dont do itŽ behind her back, sl utty Stacie (Alexis Knapp), lesbian/token black chick (the writers killed two ste-reotypes with one stone there) Cyn-thia Rose (Ester Dean), senior nice girl Chloe (Brittany Snow) and senior bitch/captain Aubrey (Anna Camp). The Bellas biggest competition is Bardens Treble Makers, an all-male group that regularly wins national championships. Theyre also mostly a bunch of jerks. The script by Kay Cannon wont win any points for originality, as its full of stock characters with silly drama/obstacles to overcome, including a love story for Beca with Treble Maker Jesse (Skylar Astin). Really, though, the story just needs to be funny enough to hold our interest between music sequences „ and it is. Wilson (Bachelore tteŽ) g ets the most laughs as she uses her big body and a Tasmanian accent to great effect, and overall the film is outrageous with-out going over the top. Even better, during the competitions, John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks play broadcasters whose one-liners nearly steal the movie „ yes, they really are that funny. But the real reason youll enjoy the cheery spirit of Pitch PerfectŽ is the music, which is full of old and new pop tunes thatll make you want to dance in the aisle. Some are frowned upon „ Aubrey mistakenly thinks the Bellas can win with Ace of Bases I Saw The Sign,Ž a song no one ever liked „ while others are championed as heavyweight pop anthems (Young MCs Bust A Move,Ž Kelly Clar ksons Since Youve Been GoneŽ and Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are,Ž to name a few). And to top if all off, there are frequent references to The Breakfast Club,Ž the movie that epitomizes teen angst and has a great soundtrack. Any movie that loves The Breakfast ClubŽ this much is OK in my book. Cast members did their own singing and hold up pretty well, especially Snow, who was in HairsprayŽ (2007) and has only gotten better since. And although this film might not make an A-list lead out of Anna Kendrick (Up In the AirŽ), whose acting is superior to her singing and dancing, she holds up well enough here to be a likeable protagonist. Pitch PerfectŽ is a movie you see with a group of friends who like to yell and be free and have a great time. More than one person told me they wanted to see it again as soon as it was over, and its hard to argue with them. Q LATEST FILMS‘Pitch Perfect’ j o „ m dan >> A company called Varsity Vocals hosts high school and collegiate a cappella competi-tions each spring. The 2011 collegiate winners from the Berklee College of Music called themselves “Pitch Slapped,” which is one of the taglines for this lm. Dredd +++ (Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirlby) A futuristic cop (Urban) who serves as judge, jury and execution-er gets trapped with a rookie trainee (Thirlby) inside a prison-like complex run by drug-lord Ma-Ma (Headey). Hyper-violent and intense, the film features stunning slow-motion action sequences and is dutifully entertaining. Rated R. 10 Years ++ (Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt) Old friends reunite for their 10-year high school reunion; some have moved on and are doing well, others, not so much. Its occasionally funny, but with so many storylines it gets as boring as youd expect a reunion at which you dont know anyone to be. Rated PG-13. The Master +++ (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams) A WWII veteran and lost soul (Phoenix) goes under the wing of a charismatic cult leader (Hoff-man) whos making up the rulesŽ as he goes along. The acting is superb, but writer/director Paul Thomas Ander-sons (There Will Be BloodŽ) story is slow and underwhelming. Rated R. Q CAPSULES
