A2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYLatest religious messagesQ The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that an insane person cannot be execut-ed, no matter how heinous the crime, because he cannot understand why he was being killed. Notwithstanding that, Florida Judge David Glant has ordered John Ferguson, 64, to death for a 1978 multiple-murder conviction, despite evaluations from 30 doctors that Mr. Ferguson is an insane paranoid schizo-phrenic. (At press time, the U.S. Court of Appeals is considering Mr. Fergusons lawyers last-second challenge.) Judge Glant acknowledges that Mr. Ferguson is delusional, but found that he neverthe-less understands why he is being execut-ed. Mr. Fergusons belief in a Jesus-like resurrection upon death, with a glorious afterlife, is not, Judge Glant said, so significantly different from beliefs (that) other Christians may hold so as to con-sider it a sign of insanity.ŽQ Former Arkansas state legislator Charlie Fuqua is running again after a 14-year absence from elective office. In the interim, reported the Arkansas Times in October, he wrote a book, Gods Law: The Only Political Solution,Ž reminding Christians that they could put their super-rebellious children to death as long as proper procedure (set out in Deuteronomy 21:18-21) was followed. Even though this (capital punishment) would rarely be used,Ž Mr. Fuqua wrote, if it were the law of the land ... it would be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents.ŽQ A city official in nominally Catholic Tupa, Brazil, granted, for the first time, offi-cial civil unionŽ status to a man and two women, who thus enjoy all the legal ben-efits of marriage (as per a recent Brazilian Supreme Court decision). A CNN reporter, translating Portuguese documents, said the union was called polyfidelitous.ŽLeast competent criminalsQ IRS agents, investigating tax-fraud suspect Rashia Wilson, 26, turned up thousandsŽ of identification numbers in a September home search in Tampa. Ms. Wilson had already laid down a challenge in May, when she wrote on Facebook: Im Rashia, the queen of IRS tax fraud. (Im) a millionaire for the record. So if you think that indict-ing me will be easy, it wont. I promise you. I wont do no time, dumb (expletive unpublished).Ž The search also turned up a handgun, and since Ms. Wilson is a convicted felon (with 40 arrests), she was jailed, and denied bail in part because of the Facebook post.Q Two men robbing an Open Pantry store in Madison, Wis., in October escaped, but with less money than they came with. The lead thief grabbed a handful of cash that the clerk had been counting when the pair entered. The clerk pleaded, then sternly demanded that the man give back the money. The thief thought for a moment, became remorseful, threw all the money in his pocket to the floor, and fled. The clerk told police that when she re-counted the money, there was $1 more than in her original count, meaning that the thief had accidentally tossed in a dollar of his own.Disgraced but not contriteThe former police chief of Bell, Calif., Randy Adams, had resigned in disgrace after prosecutors charged eight other city officials with looting the municipal bud-get. Mr. Adams had been recruited by the alleged miscreants (at a sweetheart sal-ary twice what he made as police chief of much larger Glendale), and his resignation left him with a generous state pension of $240,000 a year. Rather than quietly accept the payout, Mr. Adams immediately appealed to a state pension panel, claiming that his one inexplicably rich year in Bell had actually upped his pension to $510,000 a year. In September, with a straight face, Mr. Adams pleaded his case to the panel, but 20 times during the questioning invoked his right not to incriminate himself.Doctors just want to have funQ Navy medical examiner Dr. Mark Shelly was notified of disciplinary action in July after admitting that he let his children handle a brain (and pose for photos with it) that he was transporting for autopsy to Portsmouth, Va. Q A 15-year-old Swedish student, working at Malmo University Hospital on a practical work-lifeŽ internship, was allowed by a doctor to make part of the incision for a cesarean section childbirth and to examine the patient vaginally. One alarmed cesarean patient alerted news media after reading about the ori-entation program in May and wondering if she had been a hands-onŽ patient.Bright ideasQ The Swiss company Blacksocks offers an iPhone app that utilizes radio frequency identification chips inserted into socks so they can be automatically sorted. Q The iPoo app, reported Wired magazine in November, (l)ets you chat with your fellow defecators from the comfort of your own toilet.Ž Q In developmentŽ now, according to Harvard freshman Olenka Polak, is a Code RedŽ app that creates an exchange network so that women and girls who find themselves unexpect-edly spotting can locate an emergency source for a tampon or pad.Family valuesQ A teenager, apparently fed up with his parents commandeering of their homes basement for an elaborate mar-ijuana-growing operation, turned the couple in in August. The Doylestown Township, Pa., couple (a chiropractor mom and software engineer dad) had sophisticated hardware and 18 plants.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYEventually social science works its way around to confirming eternal veri-ties. So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that throughout history, religious, theological and philo-sophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being.Ž Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wis-dom of the ages and confirmed „ sure enough „ it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with well-being as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal.Ž Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a calm passion.Ž It doesnt have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or cour-age and sacrifice. Nonetheless, theres a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretch-ing from Cicero (Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all othersŽ) to Oprah (Whenever you cant think of something to be grateful for, remember your breathŽ). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is pro-social.Ž A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of com-mercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrys-ler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe noth-ing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, noth-ing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights.Ž He called for a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us.Ž John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while cel-ebrating it all the same (if in anachronis-tic language): Griefs upon griefs! Dis-appointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.We are not powerless to confront climate changeMillions of victims of Superstorm Sandy remain without power, but they are not powerless to do some-thing about climate change. The media consistently fail to make the link between extreme weather and global warming. Through this catastrophe, people are increas-ingly realizing that our climate has changed, and the consequences are dire. One meteorologist who defies the norm is Dr. Jeff Masters, who founded the weather blog Weather Underground. As Sandy bore down on the East Coast, I asked Mas-ters what impact climate change was having on hurricanes. He said: Whenever you add more heat to the oceans, youve got more energy for destruction. Hurricanes ... pull heat out of the ocean, convert it to the kinetic energy of their winds.Ž Masters blog became so popular, it was purchased by The Weather Chan-nel. As Sandy moved up the coast, Masters continued with our interview: When you do heat the oceans up more, you extend the length of hurricane sea-son. And theres been ample evidence over the last decade or so that hurri-cane season is getting longer „ starts earlier, ends later. Youre more likely to have this sort of situation where a late-October storm meets up with a regular winter low-pressure system and gives us this ridiculous combination of a noreaster and a hurricane that comes ashore, bringing all kinds of destructive effects.Ž Mitt Romney must rue that line in his Republican National Convention speech, days after Hurricane Isaac narr owly mis sed hitting Tampa, Fla., and the convention, when he quipped: President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.Ž Romney drew a big laugh from those gathered to nominate him. No one is laughing now. Sandys U.S. death toll has reached 50, with 8 million without power. Initial estimates put the cost of the damage at tens of billions of dollars. Romneys latest position on climate change is no surprise, since it conforms with his consistent pivot to the right, away from his previously held views. As recently as 2007, he told CNBCs Kud-low and Company,Ž But no question about one thing „ its getting warmer, and [there are] a lot of good reasons for us to use less energy, to use it more efficiently and to develop sources here in this country that could allow us to be more independent of foreign sources.Ž We also should not let President Barack Obama off the hook. Recall the presidential debates, where he continu-ally boasted of his fossil-fuel credentials. Oil production is up, natural gas pro-duction is up,Ž he said at Hofstra, during the second debate. Im all for pipelines. Im all for oil production.Ž In none of the three presidential debates was climate change mentioned, even once, not by the major-party presidential candidates and not by the moderators. Masters partially attributes the lack of discussion to the power of the fossil-fuel lobby: Youre talking about the oil and gas industry ... about the entire basis of the industrialized economy. With these sorts of storms, people are going to wise up at some point and say: Hey, whats going on? Maybe we shouldnt mess with the very forces that enable us to live on the planet Earth. ... Weve got to get self-preservation in our minds pretty soon, or this is just the start of things, Here we are in the year 2012; whats going to be happening in 2030 if were already seeing storms like this?Ž Think Progress did an analysis of the 94 stories in major news-papers in the week leading to the superstorm. Not once was climate change mentioned. In a 600-page report issued in November 2011, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority assessed in detail the likely effects of climate change on every aspect of the state. The summary provides a litany of disasters likely to visit The Empire State in coming years, from floods, droughts and rising sea levels displacing entire communities to the complete flooding of the New York City subway system. Sound familiar? As power is restored to the millions without it, there is a power that can-not be taken from us. That is the power to decide, especially as we move into this election, that the issue of climate change, and what we can do about it, will never be excluded from the national debate again.

PET TALESSafe at homeA move is the perfect time to convert outdoor cat to inside life BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickA few months ago, I moved to a place for all my animals, not only three dogs and a cat, but also chickens, ducks, horses and goats. While its good to have everyone together „ and a big garden planned for spring „ there was one change I made for one of them that was long overdue: I ended my cats roaming days. In effect, I was taking my own advice. Im well aware that a cat who has been used to going out as he pleases wont accept a closed door quietly. But when you m ove, everythings new, and a cat wont miss territory he hasnt claimed as his own. Six months later, Ilario, my fluffy orange tabby, is content with the change. As am I, and thats because in the house I left behind remains the memory of the cat who never came home. Clara was a sweet little thing who rarely left the yard. Neither cat did, which is why I indulged them when they asked to go outside. After she disap-peared, I did all the things youre supposed to: let the microchip registry know, put out flyers, checked the shelters. I never saw her again.Id never meant for either cat to go outside, and after Clara disappeared, I closed the door on Ilario. It didnt go well. He yowled, he paced and he threw himself at the window screens. And whenever he could, hed take advantage of the opportunity to slip out. The new house was easier to secure than the old one, and Ilario has adjusted well to indoor life. Thats because I made sure it works for him. Hes an active cat, and Ive worked hard to keep him that way. Some tips: Q Set aside time every day to play with your cat. Cat fishing poles, with strings ending in feathers or other cat-attracting toys, are a great way to get your cat moving. Some cats love chasing dots of light from a laser pointer, while others can be encouraged to chase toys and even retrieve them.Q Offer your cat ways to play when youre not around. Cat trees and tunnels can be great for cavorting or for hiding when a cat just wants to be left alone. Check out toys stuffed with catnip for extra appeal, or those puzzle toys that keep a cats interest by making play a test of both body and mind.Q Make getting food more difficult for your cat. All most cats have to do to eat is waddle over to a full dish. End free-feeding, and make a cats food hard to get. Break the daily measured portion into smaller meals, and put these small plates in places that require jumping or climbing to find. Some cats may also enjoy puzzle toys that make them work to get out bits of kibble.Q Consider safe outdoor space. Converting a screened-in porch to a feline jungle gym will give your pet more reasons to stay active. Remember that cats like heights, so build in tempting overhead spaces that require effort to reach. Theres nothing a cat likes better than looking down on people, after all! I wish the world were safe enough that Ilario could enjoy the little farm I have now, but I know its not. We live on a road where people drive by at highway speeds, and every night I can hear the cries of coyotes. So Ive compromised, and its working out well for us both. Cats can and do live happily indoors. Whatever you do, dont keep your cat inside and offer nothing in exchange for the pleasures of nature youre denying him. Enrich the indoor environment, and youll have a cat whos not only safer, but also healthier and every bit as content as one who comes and goes at will. Q COURTESY PHOTO No longer free to roam, Ilario enjoys a life indoors with plenty to keep him busy.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYRooneys Public House in Abacoa or E.R. Bradleys Saloon in West Palm or myriad you-name-it sports bars and bistros. Sure, from the kickoff, patrons get hooked on the action. New York Giants driving on the Philadelphia Eagles, down 23-20, time running out. Pittsburgh Steel-ers behind by four at Cincinnati. Chicago Bears holding off the Lions. Oh YEAHHHH! Noooooo! CMON! Did you see THAT? Get real, ref! Yow, he DROPPED it! Yo, man, that was a bleepin fantastic catch! What a run! FUM-ble! TOUCH-DOWN! Wooo-HOOOO! They get pulled in by the contest, the numbers, the shifting fortunes, the athletic ballet, the histrionic announcer-voices piped over sound systems. Some might have a bet on the game. Maybe the team hails from their hometown, or their fam-ilys been backers for generations. Minnesota Vikings up a touchdown early on Arizona. Tampa Bay Buccaneers got the New Orleans Saints by the throat. Dallas Cowboys goin down AGAIN! Wait, did they just score? Next week, similar noises, different outcomes. His team wins, her team loses, our team blows a lead or comes from behind. Sure, OK, most people who can afford a TV could get that at home. Not the point.Take your eyes off the video screen a minute and watch the people coming in. Two gray-haired men in Dolphins jer-seys, laughing and bumping forearms as one says, We cant lose today!Žand the other says, Yeah, we dont PLAY today!Ž Blonde woman coming up behind two guys at the bar, giving each a kiss on the cheek, calling out Everybodys here!Ž The reason people come to a sports bar on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, server Dee Tyska of the JJ Muggs Stadium Grill in Abacoa is saying, is only a little about point spreads or upsets or preor post-game analysis, on-screen or in-face. Its a lot more about wait staff and bartenders and owners and REGULARS, and all the faces and voices, familiar and new, that come with the two-for-one drinks and the tap beers and the hot wings and peel-and-eat shrimp. About people HI!-ing and hugging and high-fiving or fist-bump-ing, forgetting about overdue rent or ran-cor over politics or religion. Even, a little, about the guy who loses it and pounds a table or punches a wall. They know hes good for the repair. Its about kicking back. Sports bars, Dee Tyska suggests, make casual dining look like haute cuisine. You can be yourself, here,Ž she says. Were not serving you with a silver spoon on a silver platter.Ž Part of the draw, Ashlynn Hoppmann says from the bar at JJ Muggs, wearing her custom-made Green Bay Packers jersey, watching her team on the screen above her head, is that you get to go a little nuts. When Aaron Rodgers hits Jermichael Finley on a 20-yard pass, her arms snake-dance over her head and she lets loose a lone howl of triumph: WoooooHOOOOOO! It might also be about two-for-one drinks all day, about ales, lagers, stouts, porters, Bloody Marys and shots of Jager-meisters, about pitchers and schooners of beer and 100-ounce brewskies called Tow-ers of Power, about shooters swallowed with each touchdown, blue Giants Jell-O with rum, orange Dolphins or Bears Jell-O with vodka, also about the firecracker chicken wings and the Touchdown Soft Taco Trio. Early games, late games, Sunday Night and Monday Night Football, the high-def, big-screen images keep flashing, the sound systems keep clamoring, the fans keep shouldering in. Thursday Night Football. Before long, Friday, then Satur-day. College games all over the wired and wireless and multi-screen map, almost any night, everything building to playoffs and championships, ready to retool and build again. Party time? Any time! Even more, right here, right now, this is about the energy, the noise, the voices, the knowing and being known. It might seem to be about rivalries, but, most patrons and servers say, its really about togeth-erness. About release, a furlough from routine, from work and worry. About the drama and clear outcome about being part of something. Also about eating eats and drinking drinks. Its about a dozen Giants fans in blue team jerseys, in the front room at JJ Muggs, yowling in chorus as Michael Ben-nett palms a spiral from Eli Manning for 31 yards. Its about a father, John Curry, and his teenage son, Jack, sharing a table, watching their favorite team, the Green Bay Packers, contend with the St. Louis Rams, guided to the proper high-defini-tion plasma screen at the Duffys Sports Grill in Palm Beach Gardens by small Packers and Rams felt pennants taped under the screen. Its a lot of energy, a lot of fun,Ž John says, and Jack adds, And we come here because we dont get the (Packers) games on cable.Ž Their game is mute; the play-by-play being piped throughout the place is Giants-Redskins. Still, their duet of Oh NO!Ž when a defensive holding call sets the Packers back and their percussive clapping when Green Bay scores resound over the clatter of dishes and small talk nearby. On this late October Sunday, the attraction is also about Dee Tyska and Jill Fer-riola and Jessica Barr, at JJ Muggs, and their boss, owner Dennis Witkowski, and about Chelsie Abeln and her co-workers up at the Duffys franchise at U.S. 1 and PGA Boulevard, and the way they all do business. The restaurant business, pub and bar business, though it might seem to slide toward the bottom-line predicable and corporate, Witkowski suggests, is per-sonal, and on game day, college or NFL, its especially social. This days crowds appear to lean toward the mature (Saturdays college crowds, Dee Tyska says, are younger and more die-hard) and the male, true to the tradition of sports bars, which may have started in Boston in 1897 with McGreevys 3rd Base Saloon and which ARE cel-ebrated in the TV sitcom Cheers.Ž Local establishments, though, also cater to fami-lies, and to older fans who want less rau-cous-and-rowdy and more eat-and-enjoy. Some offer separate, quieter rooms or family-friendly enclosures or louder back areas with large screens. And women have been showing up in greater numbers. One person might come to get out of the house; another might be look-ing for a kind ear or a romantic interest, another for a servers attention or just a few laughs. Somebody else might be a long way from home, the way a lot of people end up in Florida, grateful for any kindred spirit, where meŽ becomes us.Ž You a Steelers fan? Ma brother! Jets, man! Dolphins got it! Gators, Hurricanes, Semi-noles, Bulldogs, Crimson Tide, Wolver-ines, hook em Horns, get em Gamecocks. How about them Buckeyes? Some places play favorites, too. They know from marketing. JJ Muggs draws fans of the New York Giants and Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles; Rooneys up the street specializes in the Pittsburgh Steel-ers „ the Rooney family owns the team, after all. Baseball in its season is a draw, too, but on a much slower arc. Though JJ Muggs and Rooneys are literally a fly ball away from Roger Dean Stadium and its major leaguers in spring training and minor-league Jupiter Hammerheads and Palm Beach Cardinals through the summer, Witkowski says, We have a lot of regu-lars.

All those crazy St. Louis fans coming in, this place turns into a sea of red. But theres nothing like this time of year, when youve got all the sports going at once.Ž Witkowski and his sons, Ryan and Eric, take their family enterprise personally, too. People still need the food and service to be good, or they wont come back. They also like faces and voices they know. Dee Tyskas been working there with Wit-kowski for seven years. As a brand name, JJ Muggs came from a chain of restaurants started by Pillsbury, the dough boy people, and named for a chimpanzee, J. Fred Muggs, once part of Dave Garroways TodayŽ show. Den-nis Witkowski played high school ball in Perth Amboy, N.J., and went on to captain the basketball team at Fordham, then to play professionally with the long-suffering Washington Generals on the Harlem Globetrotters tour, before going into busi-ness. At age 66, he still shows up for work every day, greeting newcomers with a hand across their shoulders and second-or-longer-timers by name, often adding Good to see you.Ž Its keeping me young,Ž he says. I love coming in, hanging around the young peo-ple. I dont like sitting around the house doing nothing.Ž Serving sports customers in the midst of pandemonium is an art, and Witkowski says that Dee Tyska is exceptional. Shes quick with a smile and a comeback. She gets the orders right, too. Her greatest gift, co-workers agree, is her memory, for faces, for names, for orders, for favorite drinks and appetizers. Her real labor, hiding in plain sight, and Jill Ferriolas and Jessica Barrs and Chelsie Abelns, is the leg-work. Eight hours or more on foot on a busy day, one task to another, condiments to stock and place-settings and orders to pick up and hand out, dishes to collect and clean, co-workers and customers to please at every turn, can test the best of them. Dee will tell you, right out, that shes coming off a little too much cheer the night before and has to focus harder. You get only so far by faking. She still doesnt miss an order or forget to whisk away a plate or check on a refill, deliver the orders and stay in tune with the kitchen, stock her station. Football players dont focus much harder, and they get breaks between plays and possessions. Ask Chelsie Abeln, as very few do, about what it takes to do her servers job at the Duffys Sports Grill in Palm Beach Gardens. I would love people to know ...We work really hard for you guys,Ž she says. Ill work today from 11:45 to probably around 8, and you have to keep your energy level. The best thing is working a table with either a team you like or hate. Theres a lot of needling going on. Otherwise you just have to keep your mind focused, make sure you wipe things down, clean tables, reset. I dont think people always quite understand how much you have to remember.Ž The wait staff is mostly overlooked in favor of bright pictures, moving and bray-ing on all sides. Video screens, flat and high-definition, they know, keep advancing in greater numbers from households into com-merce, especially the hospitality business. JJ Muggs has some 25 high-def screens; Duffys shows 27 in view from a single table. They draw loyalists and fantasy leaguers alike. People in fantasy leagues have players on a lot of different teams,Ž Dee Tyska says. They can come here and follow them.Ž On Week 1, most of these places teemed with fans, perking and popping off with energy, elbowing for space. Week 7, with the Dolphins off on their bye week, is gen-tler. Get the Dolphins and Giants in the early games,Ž Dee says, and its crazy.Ž Regardless of outc omes, the NFL retains its allure, here and in the wider culture. Sixteen teams, 17 weeks, then playoffs and Super Bowl, and all the multi-media marketing and clothing outlets and on-air melodrama and hyperbole and strutting of personalities in between. Too much about too little? In Florida,Ž Dennis Witkowski says, football is king. People pack in the stands for the high school games, and it carries through to the college games. Florida is unique with great programs they have down here and how fanatical the fans are.Ž For those who cant show their colors and pledge their fealty in stadiums, a sports bar serves nicely. The early games are flashing across multi-screens to a finish, and the Giants seem beaten. At JJ Muggs, the blue-clad majority makes a guttural sound, somewhere between a murmur and a growl, as the Redskins go up on the Giants, 23-20. Then ... Yeeee-AAAHHHH! WOOOoooOOO!! Eli Manning, 77 yards to Victor Cruz. Touch-DOOWWNNNN! In a far corner, one man in a Washington jersey thumps his head on the table. As the late games thresh loudly onstage, fans keep filtering in, stay awhile, jabber and order and pay and linger, sooner or later filter out. The staff stays, serves, cleans up. On the walls, autographed jer-seys of professionals, of legends, shine in their frames. A piece of winning, a touch of immortality, harken all of them back. Make a little money, spend a little money, sure, Ashlynn Hoppmann says. What else you got going? Giants win, Steelers win, Packers win, and losses like the New York Jets lean toward the next possibility. The rest of life might be tough. This Sunday afternoon shines, at least a little. Servers and owners and customers alike say that next week, in new or familiar company, might be better. If not, well, hey, theres the week after that. Q

Participants walked around the Kennel Clubs racing oval before releasing their pink balloons in a tribute to family and friends who had succumbed to cancer. ŽIt was very emotional to see the balloons sail off into the sky,Ž said the clubs director of publicity, Theresa Hume, in a prepared statement. Many walkers were thinking of people they know who lost their courageous fight and those who continue to battle.Ž There were also eight Pink Ribbon Greyhound Races, with Suncoast Ken-nels Atascocita Henri winning the Pink Ribbon Finale Award.

She knew it was important to be with people, but honestly, she didnt have it in her to be sociable. It was more than a year since her husband Howard had died, but it seemed harder now than before. She missed Howard terribly. Everything reminded her of him. There were days she would ruminate and feel sorry for herself. She felt guilty she hadnt insisted Howard see his doctor when he started having physical symptoms. Then shed shift to feeling angry that Howard hadnt watched his diet or exercised more. And, then, shed get angry at friends who hadnt been there for her the way she thought they would. She hated the way she reacted to people these days. She couldnt concentrate on her bridge game and would become impatient with friends. The conversations would swirl around her and she wanted to scream: Howard is gone! I could care less whether you liked the food at Caf Pietro. Or if your daughterin-law was promoted.Ž She kept hearing about the stages of grief „ the anger, the denial, the depression, bargaining and finally acceptance „ but she felt they were trivializing her experience by putting it into a formula. Sure, shed had all the requisite emotions, and then some! She just didnt have a clue how shed be able to reach the final stage of acceptance.Although the literature describes the specific stages of grieving, there is, in fact, no normalŽ or right way to grieve. Each of us processes our emotional upsets very differently, and faces loss in a very personal way. Experiencing the intense feelings of grief, anger and guilt, although enormously painful, is a necessary part of healing. The feelings of sadness and loss may always be a part of us, but over time, the intensity of the pain should soften.The grieving process is largely impacted by the survivors unique emotional make-up and coping skills, the relationship the survivor had with the deceased, the sup-port system in place for the survivor and the circumstances of the death. When a death of a loved one is unexpected or shocking, there may be a greater risk for major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or a protracted grief period. When there is a complicated grief reaction, there may be persistent thoughts and intense emotions and longings for the deceased, extreme feelings of isolation and loneliness, sleep disturbance and apa-thy about previously enjoyed activities. If these extremely painful feelings persist, it would be advisable to consult ones physi-cian or a mental health professional.Regardless, we should remove pressure and expectations, to give the mourner the space to sort through feelings in their own way. We should also know that each member of a family processes grief in a personal way, and may not always be in synch with those they are close to. Recog-nizing this, and supporting each others differences will be critically important.A recent AARP article highlighted research by Toni Bisconti, a psychologist at the University of Akron, challenging previously held assumptions about griev-ing. The commonly held premise that peo-ple grieve in stages largely did not hold. The study concluded that there are often vast fluctuations in emotions from one day to the next, or even within the same day. It was not uncommon for a widow to be positive and cheerful one day and despondent the next. However, over time, the trend is to have diminishing swings of frequency and intensity until we reach a more solid level of emotional adjustment.Another recent study by psychologist George Bonanno of Columbia University found that in most instances, grief is a severe but self-limiting condition, not a permanent state. His findings showed that for half the participants, the core symptoms of grief „ anxiety, depression, shock and intru-sive thoughts „ had lifted by six months after the loss. Smaller samples found it more difficult to resume normal func-tioning and in these instances, the symp-toms did not lessen for up to 18 months, or three years. Bonannos research fur-ther showed the propensity for resilience in the large majority of subjects. There is strong evidence that the human spirit is able to work through acute pain to thrive over time, despite sadness and loss. Important research highlights that drawing on happy memories of the deceased can actually promote the heal-ing process. Those able to laugh and tell fond stories about loved ones were found to be emotionally healthier 14 months out than those who carried sadness, fear and anger. In that vein, we can help ourselves move through our grief by reaching out to those who are comforting and intro-ducing more activities to our days. Even if it feels like were going through the motions at first, eventually were likely to enjoy the camaraderie. Joining a network of others who have experienced similar losses can be a source of enormous comfort. Just know-ing were not alone can be reassuring. Some find that writing in a journal can be cathartic and a means of staying connected to the loved one. Many find comfort in looking at pictures and remi-niscing about special times, or setting up special traditions, such as planting trees or setting up a charity in the loved ones name, for the family to honor a loved one. Were often comforted and are better able to make sense of the loss by committing to activities where we can give back to the community in a meaningful way.

For the past three years his Platinum Properties has doubled sales every year. Last year the 73 agents who work for the firm brought in more than $80 million. Our philosophy is the reason we are so successful,Ž he said. We believe in hiring quality people and in investing in technology. Many other firms hire as many people as they can. There is a ten-ant landlord relationship. The agents pay a fee to be there and if they succeed that is great. We limit the number of people we employ and provide them with powerful tools.Ž For example, Mr. Kirvin understands that looking for a house is a 24/7 proposi-tion and that buyers are constantly on the look out for the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood for the perfect price. So he makes it easy for the buyers to check out an area whenever they chose and at the same time keep connected to their agents. A buyer can be sitting in a restaurant and decide he wants to find all the homes for sale in that neighborhood,Ž Mr. Kirvin explained. Our agents provide our buy-ers with an app where they can find any listing on the MLS. It also keeps buyers loyal.Ž Craig Wandoff is a four-time client of Platinum Properties. He said the companys app takes all the searching out of the equation.Ž I can say show me houses in a threemile radius, and even look at photos,Ž said Mr. Wandoff. You dont have to wait until Sunday anymore to see houses.Ž Since 90 percent of all buyers begin their search for a home online, Platinum Properties has created a user-friendly website (with a Google ranking of six) that lets potential clients surf the listings and also helps them find an agent. As cli-ents search for properties, that informa-tion is relayed to their agent to better help him or her find a listing that is relevant to the buyer. Once they are on board, clients receive information to help them through any transaction. We give our clients „ buyers and sellers „ guides to walk them through the transaction from both sides,Ž said Mr. Kirvin. When an agent closes a deal we send out different real estate information such as advice on how to maintain the house and data on the market with the agents name. We want our agents to mar-ket to their data base and we make sure they have 36 touch points over the course of the year.Ž These touch points include a variety of direct mail, e-mail campaigns and cus-tom-published magazines designed and distributed to give agents a reason to pick up the phone and contact clients. In addition, business can be transacted by phone or iPad. I had one client sign a contract on his iPad while he was standing in line with his family at Dis-ney World. He just used his finger,Ž Mr. Kirvin said. Were trying very hard to be green. I have gone almost a year and a half without having to meet someone to do a transaction.Ž Said Platinum Properties agent Pal Kaufman: We are at the leading edge of technology. That is a powerful tool. This is not just another real estate company. There are programs and training here to help you succeed.Ž Platinum Properties is about to open its fourth office in Port St. Lucie, where Mr. Kirvin says investors are buying up 3and 4-bedroom homes and keeping them as rentals. The main office is in Jupiter with satellites in Juno Beach and Stuart. But Mr. Kirvin, a Brooklyn native who has been in Florida since 1975, also believes in balance. Married to Julie Kirvin, an executive recruiter for 17 years with Rob-ert Half in West Palm Beach, he is part of a power couple that not only throws barbecues and other parties for the staff to keep them from getting burned out, but volunteers within the community and at St. Marks in Palm Beach Gardens, where his daughters Corrigan, 11, and McKenna, 8, go to school. We try to create a fun, successful atmosphere,Ž Mr. Kirvin said of his com-pany. We want our employees to have a good quality of life. In real estate it is easy to work seven days a week. We try to find balance for our families.Ž In fact, it was Mr. Kirvins relationship with his wife that set him on the road to real estate. A sales and marketing execu-tive when they met, he watched as Julies clients transferred into the area for work, were referred to other real estate brokers for their relocation needs. I thought I can do this a lot better than a lot of other people,Ž he said. He eventually opened Platinum Properties in 2003. He partnered with Chris Small in 2008 and in 2009 added a third partner, John Kern, and began to sl owly evolve the business. In 2009 sales were $20 million. In 2010 they were $44 million and last year more than $80 million. This phenomenal growth during a recession also owes its heft to strategic marketing efforts Mr. Kirvin has imple-mented. First he created the National Real Estate Referral Network, a program that taps into all the agents in South Florida who do little more than keep up their licenses. We know that 87 percent of real estate transactions are done on the basis of a relationship,Ž said Mr. Kirvin. With the referral company, agents dont have to join the board or pay for MLS. They can refer business and earn a referral fee. Just by making a phone call they can make say, on a $10,000 deal, $2,200 in commission.Ž He has developed what he calls a feederŽ model with other arms of the business working in tandem. Bench-mark Title and Escrow is half owned by Platinum Properties as is a new commercial division headed by Rob-ert Hamor called Platinum Properties Commercial Company LLC. We are trying to do all these things to make it easier and get back to what we do well,Ž Mr. Kirvin said. Everything ties together into a great system for agents and a great experience for consumers.Ž Q High techhigh salesBY MARILYN BAUERmbauer@” Jim Kirvin and his company, Platinum Properties, use the latest in technology and the increase in sales shows it’s working.

JA BizTown will remain at Bea-con Cove for four days. The Junior Achievement JA BizTown program teaches the values, skills and attitudes students need to compete in a global marketplace, according to a pre-pared statement by the Junior Achieve-ment of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast. It immerses young people in a community simulation where they play adult roles and experience the economic con-sequences of the decisions they make as workers, consumers, philanthropists and business professionals. The experi-ence brings the realities of the working world and personal finance to life for students and helps them recognize the importance of education in accomplish-ing personal and professional goals. More than 3,000 students will participate in the JA BizTown simulation in Palm Beach and Martin Counties in the 2012-2013 school year. JA BizTown at Beacon Cove will also be visited by some of Junior Achieve-ments major supporters including Lynn and David Nicholson from the Stiles-Nicholson Foundation and Corey Ram-sel from Florida Power & Light. BB&T will be unveiling its new sponsorship of the JA Biz-Town bank. The opening of JA BizTown at Beacon Cove will also mark the addition of the new health and wellness center spon-sored by The Quantum Foundation. Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast is a non-profit organization that focuses on pre-paring young people to succeed in a global economy through programs that center on work readiness, entrepreneur-ship, and financial literacy. JA programs are taught by volunteers in the class-room and after school in more than 120 schools and organizations through-out Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, and Hendry Counties. Junior Achievement builds partnership between the business and education communities to provide the curriculum and the volunteers who serve as role models to students to help prepare them for their future.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 NEWS A1712th Annual Run 4 the Pies limited to 1,600 runners SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe 12th Annual Run 4 the Pies is Thanksgiving Day at 8 a.m. at the Village of Tequesta Constitution Park.

This year the race field is limited to 1,600 runners, with nearly 900 already registered at press time. The 1,600-runner limit is expected to be reached well before race day. The race has seen tremendous growth,Ž said Bob Anderson, race direc-tor, in a prepared statement. Last years race had a record crowd and this year entries are running over 20 percent ahead of last years pace.Ž The first 900 finishers will be awarded a fresh-baked Publix apple pie.

A18 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Palm Beach1800 Corporate Blvd., N.W.Suite 302Boca Raton, FL 33431561.665.4738 Fort Lauderdale200 East Las Olas Boulevard19th FloorFOrt Lauderdale, FL 33301954.522.2200 (telephone)954.522.9123 (facsimile) The first U.S. Surgeon General warning on tobacco products was required in 1964. Tobacco was labeled as bad for your health. Americans were soon using fewer tobacco products, like cigarettes, pipe tobacco, snuff, chewing tobacco and cigars. In the late Victorian era, use of snuff lost favor, and tobacco was used mainly for pipes. Tobacco is a dried leaf, and it crumbles easily, so its kept in a container that could used as a humidor. By the mid 19th century, many pottery jars were being made in Germany in amusing shapes. Few were made in the United States. Animals, human heads, historic figures and obvious shapes like barrels were popular. By the 1930s, most potteries were making more-formal and less-colorful jars. Collectors search for ornamental examples, especially those made of majolica or another colorful ceramic or by well-known factories. Tobacco jars range from 6 to 13 inches tall. They sometimes are confused with cookie jars. But a jar-humidor has a sec-tion with a hole inside the lid that held a moist sponge. And a tobacco jar lid opens at half the height of the jar. A cookie jar has a lid that opens near the top. Tobacco jars, especially the full figures of a per-son or animal, sell for $500 to more than $1,000. Beware. There are many fakes.Q: We recently bought a French provincial-style sideboard from a friend of ours and would like to learn something about the maker. There is a plastic label inside one of the drawers that reads Made by John-Widdicomb Co., Designed by Ralph H. Widdicomb, Grand Rapids.ŽA: There were two furniture companies in Grand Rapids, Mich., with the name Widdicomb. George Widdicomb emigrated from England in 1858 and opened a cabinet shop. His four sons joined the busi-ness, which became Wid-dicomb Fur-niture Co., in 1873. Georges son John left the company in 1893 and established a business mak-ing fireplace mantels and woodwork. Johns company became John Widdicomb Co. in 1897. John Widdicomb Co. gradually acquired several other fur-niture companies. In 1970, it bought the name Widdicomb Furniture Co., which had been inactive for several years. Johns nephew, Ralph H. Widdicombe (who used the original spelling of the familys last name), was the chief designer for the John Widdicomb Co. until 1951. His French provincial designs were introduced in 1924. L. & J.G. Stickley of Man-lius, N.Y., bought the brand name and assets of John Widdicomb Co. in 2002. Stickley now manufactures a line of very expensive John Widdicomb furniture.Q: My old Wheaties box is intact and has eight sports cards printed on it, including football players Otto Graham and Johnny Lujack and baseball star Stan Musial. Can you tell me when the box was original-ly sold and what its worth? And where should I try to sell it?A: Your old cereal box was on store shelves in 1952. Boxes were sold that year with a total of 60 different trading cards of 30 ath-letes. The ath-letes were shown in both portrait and action poses, and the images are in Wheaties colors blue and white on an orange background. You were smart never to cut the cards. An uncut box is more valuable than the eight cut cards printed on the box. Depending on the identity of the other athletes pictured on your box, the box could sell for more than $100, perhaps a lot more. Your box is a crossover collectible, but it would be worth more to a sports collector than to an advertising or cereal-box collector. You probably would get the best price by selling it at an auction that special-izes in sports memorabilia.Q: In 1996 I paid $12 for a 5-inch Donald Duck figural mug at an antiques mall. The mug is in the shape of Don-alds head. The base is blue, the same color as the rim around the top of the mug. Its marked with a copyright sym-bol and the words Walt Disney Prods., Japan.Ž Id like to know the mugs age and value.A: Walt Disney ceramic dishes were made in Japan before and after World War II, but your mug dates from after the war. The mark dates it anywhere from the 1950s to the early 1980s. It would sell today for roughly what you paid for it 16 years ago.Tip: Put a wide-angle viewer in a solid outside door so you can see who is there before opening the door.„ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

WEHOODXVD They are Tiffany, and how Victorian is their design, with its mix of wit and whimsy. Well, we dont use the term Victorian here. We use Gilded Age,Ž said Ms. Kamer-er, adding, Its nice to have a term that specifically describes America at this time.Ž That term, coined by Mark Twain, sums up this exhibition quite nicely. Yachting and sailing became popular after the Civil War. There also was a rise in the giving of presentation silver, such as the trophies and cups and bowls that were made at the time. The opening of the Gold Rush and new mines, there was a government deregula-tion of precious metals prices, which made the prices go down and also a rise of dispos-able income along with a rise of the middle class,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. More leisure time and more money to spend also meant more vessels. It was the first international sport Americans could witness on their own shores,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. Only after the 1920s and 30s did Americans begin to be exposed to more international sports, she said. Yacht clubs were formed throughout the nation, and crowds thronged to the shore to watch racing. Vessels of all sizes ferried spectators out to see major races up close. But the yachts in question are tall-masted marvels. When an important yacht was being launched, the newspapers would follow it for an enormous period of time with great anticipation, especially when you had an Americas Cup challenge,Ž said Ms. Kamer-er. Much of the work on a vessel had to be carried out in secrecy „ the racers didnt want to tip off their opponents to whatever technological advances they had made. The media would report every little piece of gossip, just like they do today,Ž she said. And the vessel that started it all?The yacht America was the surprise victor of the Royal Yachts Squadrons competi-tion around the Isle of Wight in 1851. She whooped the British at their own game. She shocked the world, shocked the queen, shocked the Royal Yachts Squadron and beat them by a fair amount of time,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. That was the first year the cup was offered, and the vessels design by George Steers, with a narrow, tapered bow and fuller stern, was opposite the style used by British racers. She brought the cup home and Americans were thrilled,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. This exhibition boasts a number of objects related to America, including a half-hull model of the vessel that was made for presentation to Queen Victoria. A fragment of Americas sail also is in the show. The very heavy cotton duck was revolutionary as well,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. Also revolutionary: Backers agreed to pay Mr. Steers only if the yacht won the race. He collected on that one, and started a sporting sensation that continues to this day. Other objects include a pitcher presented to Mr. Steers to commemorate the victory. Thats really telling about the social value of this, not just the financial value,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. The exhibition also has a Flagler peg.He didnt race his yachts, but Henry Flagler was interested in the sport, and was a member of several clubs, including the New York Yacht Club. He also owed sailing and steam yachts and attended regattas. In the 1880s, Mr. Flagler bought the schooner Columbia, a successful 1871 Americas Cup defender. He wasnt a racer, but he clearly was interested in the sport,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. Mr. Flagler and his steam yacht Alicia, built for him in 1890, also served on the New York Yacht Club patrol f or the 1895 Americas Cup races. A number of arti-facts and works of art related to Mr. Fla-glers yachts are featured in the exhibition, including a painting of the Columbia by maritime artist William G. Yorke. Other parts of the exhibition look at the sailing career of Sir Thomas Lipton, now remembered for his tea business. In the early 20th century, Sir Thomas was an international celebrity who was much loved for his good sportsmanship. Between 1899 and 1930 he challenged the American holders of the Americas Cup through the Royal Ulster Yacht Club five times with his yachts Shamrock through Shamrock V. His efforts to win the cup earned him a specially designed cup for the gamest of all losers.Ž Humorist Will Rogers led a fundraising campaign to buy an 18 karat gold presenta-tion cup made by Tiffany in 1930 after Sir Thomas failed during his final attempt to win Americas Cup. That cup is part of the show. I cant stop thinking what a big deal this was in 1930 to be giving somebody who is a Scotsman this hugely valuable expression of love by citizens of another country, at the height of the Depression and a guy who was a five-time loser,Ž Ms. Kamerer said. But its terrific, and the inscription is one of the most touching inscriptions Ive seen on anything. Around the top, it says, This symbol of a voluntary outpouring of l ove, admiration and esteem, presented to the gamest loser in the world of sport. Thats very sweet.Ž Q FLAGLERFrom page 1 >> What: “Capturing the Cup: Yacht Racing During the Gilded Age” >> When: Through Jan. 6 >> Where: The Flagler Museum, One Whitehall Way, Palm Beach >> Cost: Admission is $18 for adults, $10 for youth ages 13-17, $3 for children ages 6-12, and children under 6 are free. >> Info: Call 655-2833 or visit www.

A26 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYIf brokers aren’t prepared and professional, potential sale could vaporizeI am always telling my owners who have listed their property with me to put their best foot forward at all times with their home when we have a showing. The home needs to be in the best condition it can be, because it will bring more showings and better offers, resulting in a higher sales price. Just as it is important for the owners to put their best foot forward, it is also very important for the broker to do the same. This weekend I showed several homes to a client who was looking in the $2million to $3 million-price range in a few different communities. The first community was on the water in Jupiter and we viewed two homes, each with a different listing agent. The other community was in a country club also located on the water. The first home we looked at had terrific curb appeal. The location within the community was not as desirable as other homes, but the curb appeal overshadowed the location. As we walked up to the home, the listing agent greeted us at the door. He had a brochure in hand to give us and gave a few brief details of the home. As we toured the home, he told us pertinent facts about the home and pointed out unique features associated with the property. This was very enticing to my clients who would not have known everything if the agent hadnt been present. All the lights were on, there was music playing in the background and all the blinds had been pulled so there was a lot of natural light coming into the home, even though it was a northern exposure. When we finished walking through the home, we discussed the neighbor-hood, recently sold homes and the fees associated with the community. It was a very positive experience and my clients left feeling educated and wanted to consider the home even though it didnt have everything on their wish list.Ž It was clearly the presentation that grabbed their interest and made them take a closer look. At the second home we viewed, we had a similar experience, but the home needed more renovation work then my clients were willing to do, so we moved onto the next community. As we entered the guardhouse in the second community, the agent greeted us at the first home. She had two homes listed that we were viewing. As we walked up together, the home was still locked and dark inside. There were no lights, she was out of brochures and couldnt answer basic ques-tions regarding the property. The blinds were down throughout the home, so as we walked through, she was opening blinds and turning the lights on and off. Although the home was beautiful, the presentation was distracting. We continued to follow her to the next home. It was on a lock box, but she explained that she would show us since we were already with her. Unfortunately, it was a turn off to my clients as there is a service level expected, not only at this price point of $2.8 million, but at all price levels. As we entered this home, it had a very musty smell and she explained that the odor was from the home sitting empty all summer. It needed to be aired out. Again, no lights, no music and no brochure. This home had a guesthouse, but we couldnt see it because she could not locate the key. My client was on limited time and by this point was disappointed that we could not get into the guesthouse. They had previewed the photos online and were looking forward to seeing this home. When the agent couldnt get into the guesthouse, I asked if there was a key somewhere and we could come back. I can ask the owner for one but I wont be able to get it for a week. They are out of the country.Ž My clients were here for two days on a buying trip. By this time, they were somewhat annoyed and said to her Thats OK; we will buy another property that we can see today.Ž We all make mistakes and sometimes things do not go as planned, but there was no effort to make sure the property was being shown at its best. Afterwards, we viewed three other homes and my clients decided to put in an offer on the first home they viewed. Ironically, of the seven homes we viewed that day, the home they submitted the offer on was num-ber six on their list prior to them arriving. They said they loved the photos, but were not sure about the location until they arrived. They decided between two homes, but I know that the pre-sentation of the first home gave the listing agent an edge when it came to making a decision. Its very important to always present yourself as a broker in a profession-al manner, but most importantly be pre-pared with the properties you are showing. Owners hire agents to represent them for several reasons and it is our responsibility to follow through and utilize all the tools we have to present the property so it will sell quickly and at the highest possible price.„ Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates.

B15 X DESIGNS ON War is hell. And long before World War II began, the British government understood that. The expectation was that at some point, Britain would be forced into war with Germany, and that tiny island nation would be called upon to do so much with so little to fight fascism. At the same time, the government would need to make life as bearable as possible for its citizens in a time of bombings and deprivation. The Norton Museum of Arts latest exhibition, Keep Calm and Carry On: World War II and the British Home Front, 1938-1951,Ž documents how the artists, designers, architects, and film-makers in Great Britain helped win the war on the home front. The show is open through Jan. 20. Virtually every member of Englands creative class, from fashion designer Hardy Amies to arts leader Kenneth Clark and writer Noel Coward, helped fight the war at home, not only by creating innovative designs that saved essential wartime materials, but also by injecting style, beauty and high culture into the harsh realities of wartime life,Ž the curator of the exhibition, Donald Albrecht, said in a statement. The exhibitions title came from a catchphrase on a propaganda poster that never was issued, said Hope Alswang, the Nortons director, during a tour of the exhibition. There were forces in Britain that assumed the nation simply would capitulate to the Germans in the event of a war, she said. Winston Churchill and a minority of others were convinced of the need to fight. This is a tribute to the great creativity and foresight and tremendous pluck of these creative people to really work together,Ž she said.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSOnline never feels as good as the real thingIf you asked my UPS man six months ago, he would have told you I had an addiction. He knocked on my door nearly every day, hefting packages of sweaters and trousers and lingerie, items I purchased from the online con-sumer universe. Gone were the days of digging through discount bins, of sifting mer-chandise for exactly the right shape and color and size. On the Internet, I could find any item I dreamed up. A short-sleeve boatneck jersey dress in cranberry red? This seasons riding jacket in hunter green? Rain boots, leather gloves, a tartan scarf? I Googled them all. Ordered them all. And sent them all back. Heres what I discovered about online shopping: For all its conve-nience, for all its ability to order pre-cisely what we want, it never quite delivers. Or doesnt deliver in the way wed hoped. The online world is in essence a fabricated universe. A set piece where the lighting always is per-fect, the models are all skinny and the items were searching for are at our fingertips. Do you see where Im going with this? Several years ago I met a man in real life. Our paths crossed briefly, with just enough time to estab-lish a mutual attraction but not enough time to get to know each other. We parted ways soon after meeting, but we kept in touch through email. Long, torrid emails. Before too long, I got to thinking we were soul mates. And why not? On the Inter-net, we only have to show our best selves. We can tweak the lighting; we manage our own props. Recently I decided to go through my closet and get rid of the clothes I dont wear any more. In all that sorting and discarding, I had a revelation. The clothes I loved, the ones I wanted to keep and wear until they fell apart, were never the items I pur-chased online, the ones I had searched for and fantasized about. Instead, the pieces I loved were the ones I found in person. They had taken time and effort to track down, and they were almost never what I had been searching for in the first place. Over time my online love affair fizzled. The man suggested we talk on the phone, and what we had managed to hide in our emails became clear in our con-versations „ we were not soul mates. Not even close. Soon the man suggested we meet again in person. I agreed. And then declined. And agreed again. When I declined a final and definite time, my online beau exploded in angry written messages. He sent long and scathing messages condemning my sad rocket ship of a lifeŽ „ which admittedly my ideal life partner would never have said. It turns out the people I have loved the most „ like the clothes hanging in my closet „ are the ones I have come to know in the real world. They are the people who never fit my ideal description but somehow still manage to fit just right. In our too-convenient world where even dating has moved online. its easy to forget that half the fun of falling in love is combing the proverbial racks. In person. Bad lighting and all.

After you ruff the third heart, it might seem that all you can do is draw trumps, play a diamond from dummy, finesse the ten and later lead another diamond from dummy and finesse the jack. If you do this in the actual case, though, youll go down one, since West has both the king and queen of dia-monds. You could lament your bad luck in finding West with both diamond hon-ors, but in truth the outcome would be your own fault because you overlooked a superior line of play. Since the only danger to the contract is the possibility of losing two diamond tricks, you should arrange your play so that you eliminate the risk factor inher-ent in taking two finesses. At trick four, you should cash the ace of clubs, then ruff a club in dummy. Next you ruff dummys last heart before ruffing your last club. As a result of these preliminary maneuvers, dummys hand and your own have no more hearts or clubs. You then cash the K-A of trumps and lead a diamond from dummy, and, after East follows low, you finesse the ten. West wins with the queen but finds himself in a very poor position. His last three cards are the K-5 of diamonds and jack of clubs. If he returns a diamond into your A-J, he hands you your 10th trick; if he returns the jack of clubs instead, you ruff in dummy and discard the jack of diamonds from your hand to produce the same result.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYFrank Abagnale Jr. became notorious in the 1960s after he passed $2.5 million worth of forged checks across 26 countries over the course of five years, beginning when he was 16. In the process, he became one of the most famous impostors ever, and escaped federal custody twice. That story has been the subject of a film, and now a Broadway musical, which opened in 2011. The show, which has a book by Terrence McNally and a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, is fast-paced. Its set up like a 1960s television variety show. Its a marathon. Its a lot of work. It is so rewarding, I mean, this role. Every actor wants to do something like this. I get to play so many different types in one show,Ž Mr. Anthony said. In two hours, I get to be so versatile, and while Im doing it, I get to do it with the utmost confidence. I get to play with everyone who comes my way, I get to play with the audience. Its just a ball for me.Ž And the stars seemingly aligned for this star. Mr. Anthony had taken two weeks off from school to audition in New York for a variety of tours and regional the-aters. He was prepared for Catch Me If You Can.Ž I was pretty excited for Catch Me. I was obsessed with the music. I was a huge fan of Aaron Tveit, who played the role, and listened to his music from the show all the time,Ž he said. He was ready to return to Florida after his auditions for Catch Me, when he got a call asking him to meet with producers of the show. They wanted to meet with him on a Monday and a Tuesday. They said wed like to see you Thursday again, and my poor mom is rearranging my flights and paying God knows what to rearrange my flights,Ž he said. Then he and his classmates were in New York to perform a showcase for agents. My whole family was there, and the extended family was there,Ž he said. And at the reception in New York City at 1 in the morning, I got a call to come back,Ž he said. And the rest is an important first step in a budding professional career. He performed in his first musical at the age of 11, performing in the ensem-ble for a production of The Secret GardenŽ at Actors Playhouse in Coral Gables. While there, he understudied the lead, Colin. It ran for like three months. There was one day where I got to go on for Colin and I was obsessed, and I knew all I wanted to do is act now,Ž Mr. Anthony said. He said his studies at an arts middle school and high school prepared him well for theater studies in Tallahassee. I loved it. I was kind of torn going into college thinking, Am I going to pursue theater? How many people get to make it as an actor? I think it scared me a little bit, I think it intimidated me.Ž But the vocal demands of Abergale Jr. do not seem to faze him. This is how he spends his days on the road: Id probably be quiet. The show is a beast for me to sing. I do a little morn-ing warm-up then Im quiet for a few hours,Ž he said. I do a little workout in the hotel gym, then we do some exploring around the city, and do some sightseeing. We get to the theater about an hour before the show,Ž he said. The hard days are the travel days. There are days we get up early, get on a bus, get to a city by 4 oclock, be at the theater in an hour to do a sound check,Ž he said. After the show?We get in a bus, go to a new city and do it all over again. This past week, we did 10 shows in seven days,Ž he said. That sounds grueling. Its hard during the day, then as soon as the curtain goes up, all of that is gone, and I think all of that is excit-ing,Ž he said. Q wealth and power. Fascists and commu-nists w ere vying f or power. The British quite wisely realized they could never win this war if they didnt give a sense of solidarity and wholeness to the nation and created a sense that they were one democratic country,Ž Ms. Alswang said. The first thing you notice in this exhibition is the scarves „ there liter-ally are dozens lining the walls; many contain war images and inspirational messages. The fabric used on the scarves was one of the few things not rationed during the war. Fashion also was important. The British called on famous designers such as Norman Hartnell, who dressed the women of the royal family, to cre-ate frocks that used minimal fabrics. Examples of those dresses also are on display. Food was rationed „ people were allowed very small amounts of meat and fats. Families that could grew vic-tory gardens. They learned to make do „ scientists recognized that cabbage was a good source of vitamin C during a time when supplies of oranges and other citrus were limited. The nutrition planning paid off.People came out of the war incredibly healthy,Ž Ms. Alswang said. It was a time of great equality in England, too. It meant that everything from debutantes to shop girls had to go into ser-vice,Ž she said. It also was a time of making do.All of these creative types get together and create these great slogans like Mrs. Sew-and-Sew,Ž Ms. Alswang said. The character, which was used throughout the war, was a ragdoll that demonstrated how items could be remade, essential since few goods were being imported into Britain. That continued well after the war, as Britain focused on exporting goods to rebuild its economy. Culture, too, had to change with the times. The British film industry turned its attention to creating motion pictures that upheld traditional British values and a can-do attitude. All of the paintings at the National Gallery were hidden away in salt mines in Wales to protect them during the blitz. But the museum remained open, with only one painting on display. They would put one picture out, and it would come back for a month at a time. Theyd put it at the top of the stairs, and everybody would talk about what picture,Ž Ms. Alswang said. Kenneth Clark, who later hosted PBS Civilization,Ž was director of the museum at the time. He was brilliant because he knew that the museum was very important to the well being of the city. They had concerts and all kinds of lectures. Even though the galleries were empty, the museums were open to huge numbers of public programs,Ž Ms. Alswang said. And we start to think that a lot of the public programming that we take for granted today really were one of the innovations at the National Gallery during the war.Ž Q “CATCH”From page 1COURTESY PHOTO Stephen Anthony stars as conman Frank Abagnale Jr. in the musical “Catch Me If You Can.” >>What: “Catch Me If You Can” >>When: Nov. 13-18 >>Where: The Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach>>Cost: $25 and up >>Info: 832-7469 or in the know in the know NORTONFrom page 1 >>What: “Keep Calm and Carry On: World War II and the British Home Front, 1938-1951.”>>When: Through Jan. 20 Special events include:Q The four-part series Keep Calm and Carry On: British Films with Scott Eyman, literary critic and arts writer for The Palm Beach Post, and a noted lm historian and author.

But as beautiful as the stage pictures are, composer Salieris war with God over the talent of Mozart does not reach its full dramatic poten-tial here because its lit like an opera „ meaning you cant see the actors acting past the seventh row. Often the lights are too murky or they come from the side, leaving half a face in impenetrably deep shadows; eye sockets become blank inky caverns. That chiaroscuro is almost acceptable when a basso is belting out an aria and all you care about is the sound, but its fatal when we need to see the arched eyebrow, the curled lip, the anguished eyes of an actor for the full effect of a play to come across. As a result, director Michael Gieletas production is certainly worth a ticket, especially for the superlative look and feel of this lush yet decaying world. Theres a brilliant scene where Salieri is transfixed in agony upon hearing the beauty of a Mozart adagio. The dark, muted palette is invaded by a play of vivid colors on a curtain behind Sal-ieri in which abstract streaks of light complement the musical notes and illu-minate this drab world like the opening scene of Fantasia.Ž Theatergoers might expect the elephant in the room to be the 1984 Oscar-winning film version by Milos Forman. But thats never a problem because the 1979 play is much deeper and more intellectually stimulating. Furthermore, Gieleta and his cast embrace Shaffers love of telling a story through theatrical artifice and heightened language rather than the more focused thematic spine and the literal-minded production val-ues of a multimillion-dollar movie. In both versions, Salieri is a devoted and disciplined composer who is popu-lar with the masses and the Austrian court, but he knows his limitations as a mediocre talent. His shortfall is under-scored by the effortlessly produced but unrecognized works of genius spewing forth from the profligate and prodi-gal Mozart, whose middle name Amadeus is Latin for beloved of God.Ž Salieri cannot understand why God has blessed this childish boor with such a gift while denying him a smidgen of divine inspiration. And in a final insult, Salieri is perhaps the only person who recognizes Mozarts profound genius while the world is praising Salieris less-er efforts. Salieris answer is to revenge himself on God by ruining „ perhaps even murdering Mozart. The somewhat fictional tale is augmented with timeless resonances such the politics of patronage as Mozart abases himself to the Emperor and his court in order to get commissions. Or watching Salieris sycophantic servants help destroy lives with their TMZ scan-dal-mongering. Shaffers script is one of the best in modern British theater, resonating especially with anyone with even a scrap of creative ambition, from genius-es to the homemaker who self-publishes her recipes in sonnet form. The near-arias that he gives characters „ Salieri describing the exquisite agony upon hearing Mozarts music for the first time or Mozart trying to explain the unique glory of music to the barbarians at court „ are magnificent. In these moments, Gieletas mostly out-of-town cast soars, notably when Tom Bloom as Salieri and Ryan Garbayo unleash their passion. The actors abil-ity to communicate their characters pure love for art „ transcending Man-kinds pettier instincts „ enables the audience to connect with these people and forgive Salieris envy or Mozarts inanity. Garbayo, in particular, is effective throughout making credible Mozarts abyss of duality. In some situations, Mozart is a giggling, sniggering man-child who indulges in baby talk with his fianc and makes self-destructive comments to the stuffy power play-ers in the court. Yet Garbayo makes us believe that Mozart also harbors an all-consuming love of music, even though he frequently dismisses it publi-cally. Garbayo and Gieleta also convinc-ingly chart Mozarts physical, mental and emotional deterioration as Salieris undermines his career to the point of penury and invisibility on the popular scene. Bloom has a tougher challenge because, title notwithstanding, the play is about Salieri, not Mozart. Shaffer cre-ated a central character, like Dysart in his Equus, who is the narrator, glue and linchpin, in fact our surrogate. Bloom is clearly a fine classical actor who deliv-ers Salieris long speeches with a satin smoothness that reeks of a courtiers cultured urbanity. But the Salieri that he and Gieleta have created lacks a bravura dynamism that other actors have used to keep the audience hooked: a sardonic humor, an underlying anger, there are many possibilities. It is only when Salieri/Bloom lets loose with his visceral pain, jealousy and awe that we see Salieri emerge as an engaging character. This robs the production of a crucial topspin. Again, if we could see his face more often, wed probably see a more subtle performance going on. The rest of the 14-member cast is adequate if not outstanding. We know this is a very sore point for the Maltz administration, but there was no need to go to New York for most of these roles. Michael Brian Dunn (Zangler in the Maltzs Crazy For YouŽ) is appro-priately fatuous as Emperor Joseph II and Alexis Bronkovic is passable as Mozarts fiance and then-wife Con-stanze, although her voice sounds more like someone who just had her nails done at the Aventura Mall „ which you “Amadeus” lovely to look at — even when you can’t see stage BY BILL COURTESY PHOTO Tom Bloom (center) stars as composer Antonio Salieri, a man all too aware of his mediocrity, in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre production of “Amadeus.” THEATER REVIEW

Gieleta, a British director of plays and opera, imbues the evening with a steady fluidity that never flags. He often stages motionless tableaus like an opera scene; but other times, characters slide in and around each other. He uses every inch of the set, taking advantage of the upper levels of the royal box and the rake of the stage. And indisputably, he has led talented creative team members whom he either has worked with before or knew by rep-utation. All of them gorge themselves on the opportunities to bring a fresh approach to such meaty material. Top of the list is Philip Witcombs breathtaking set: the stage and royal box of a European opera house that is beyond dilapidated, the gilt edges flak-ing off, the ceiling lath exposed, the curtains in tatters, the entire structure crumbling in on itself. It leans over like those long abandoned farmhouses that the wind has blown into diagonals rather than verticals. Chandeliers have fallen to the stage and a piano fortes third leg has collapsed so the instru-ment slants to the floor. This is not meant to be a literal theater, but Salieris imagining of one as he speaks to us from a madhouse. The vision is augmented by video and still projections on the opera stages curtain, created by Andrzej Goulding who seamlessly integrates his ideas into Witcombs work. Among his additions are ominously looming silhouettes of fellow madmen in the asylum, although sometimes the moving images distract-ed from the action on the stage. Before we dis it again, acknowledge that Witcombs creation would not look half so impressive without Keith Par-hams evocative and intricate lighting design that demonstrates his technical expertise and imagination. He creates a dozen different locations and even more emotional moods by painting each scene with a different lighting plot. But Parhams overall lighting scheme from a pragmatic standpoint, endorsed if not dictated by Gieleta, looks precise-ly like the misbegotten lighting at most of Florida Grand Operas productions over the past two seasons. We get it: Side lighting is dramatic; it thematically underscores the yin and yang of Mans nature, Salieris war with God, etc. etc. The idea of having people in near dark-ness speaking key lines and plot points might echo the poor lighting of an old theater. It doesnt matter. It doesnt work. Ask the ushers at the back of the orchestra seats. More than a nod is due Fabio Toblinis costumes and Gerard Kellys wigs. They have clad the men in a sumptuous-look-ing array of waistcoats, tricorns, ruffled shirts and knee breeches. The women parade in elegant gowns that bespeak the period. Despite its faults, this AmadeusŽ has enough virtues to recommend it, begin-ning with a chance to see a profession-al company deliver Shaffers brilliant play. The Maltz, in particular, deserves high praise for sl owly scheduling more straight plays like Twelve Angry MenŽ and Sleuth,Ž and applying its consider-able resources and talents to projects beyond its forte of reinventing musicals such as Hello, Dolly!Ž and Cabaret.Ž AmadeusŽ is a step forward.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 B13 ++++ Is it worth $10?YesIn Flight,Ž a pilot rescues 96 people from certain death as he guides an airplane to the ground after it malfunctions. Hes a hero, right? What if he was drunk, had smoked marijuana and taken cocaine when the crash occurred? The great thing about FlightŽ is that its never about how well the pilot, Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington), flew the plane. Rather, it focuses on the aftermath and how an alcoholic deals with the fame and scruti-ny of his heroism. On one hand, he finds love in fellow addict Nicole (Kelly Reilly) a lost soul. On the other hand. he cant let himself be happy. This is a sad, powerful and extremely well made tale of a great deed undone by a horrible disease. Sadly, six people died in the crash. Someone has to pay,Ž criminal negligence attorney Hugh Lang tells Whip and his friend/airline union rep Charlie Ander-son (Bruce Greenwood). The airline wants to blame Whip, and Whip cor-rectly insists the plane fell apart on him. Although a legal battle ensues, this is never a courtroom drama. Instead, writer John Gatins (Real SteelŽ) and director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest GumpŽ) focus on the self-defeating and self-loathing actions of a man who should be embracing the adulation of those around him. Stop drinking! Say no! Get away from the bottle,Ž we think, frustrated that Whip cant stop when he knows he has to in order to ensure his freedom. If it were this easy, though, there would be no alcoholics. What viewers need to remember „ and accept „ in order for this film to work is that Whip, regardless of what he says, cannot con-trol himself. Alcoholism is a disease that takes over ones life and does not relent until you force it to do so. This is why the real strength of the movie is Whips battle with addiction and how it ruins his life, and how exceptionally well it is portrayed by Mr. Washington, who hasnt been this good in years. Watch closely for the sad desperation in Whips eyes as he knows he needs to stop but cant, leaving us to pity him. One of the best scenes comes when Whip needs a pick-me-up, so his old friend Harling Mays (John Goodman, stealing scenes with great comic relief) comes in to get him high so he can be right.Ž It plays for laughs, but its actu-ally depressing. Youll likely get frustrated with Whip on numerous occasions, and rightfully so. Youre never expected to like Whip, or even respect him. He will, however, prompt you to think about your moral-ity. For example, there are moments in which he asks surviving crewmembers to lie for him to the authorities. The crewmembers are under oath to tell the truth, but do they owe it to Whip because he saved their lives? Each view-er will respond in his or her own way, and there is no clear answer. What is clear, however, is that Flight,Ž with its themes, performances and direction, is one of the best movies of the year. Q LATEST FILMS‘Flight’ W i i s O W dan >> This is director Robert Zemeckis’ rst live action lm since "Cast Away" (2000). Fun Size + (Victoria Justice, Jackson Nicoll, Chelsea Handler) A teenagers (Jus-tice) plans „ and her chance to hook up with the school hottie „ are ruined when shes forced to watch her little brother (Nicoll) on Halloween night. Its a total mess from start to finish: amoral, unfunny and a chore to sit through. Rated PG-13.Paranormal Activity 4 ++ (Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton, Matt Shively) A family in Henderson, Nev., notices strange things happening after the boy who lives across the street moves in with them. Many of the scares are predictable and cheap, leaving only the ending to enhance the little good this film does. It seems this low-budget franchise has run its course. Rated R.Alex Cross + (Tyler Perry, Rachel Nichols, Matthew Fox) Detective Alex Cross (Perry) must stop a psycho killer (Fox) who threatens a local businessman (Jean Reno). Foxs performance is strong, but his character lacks motivation and the story is inept. Rated PG-13.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 Wine picks of the week >>Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha ($15): Rich purple-red in color, and made from old-vine grapes, Tres Picos is full of blackberry, strawberry and raspberry aromas and avors, nishing with a touch of orange spice. >>Cave de Tain Crozes Hermitage 2010 ($18): 100 percent marsanne grape from the northern Rhone district of France, this opens with citrus and owers on the nose, followed by melon and tropical fruit avors with a touch of spice at the end. >>Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche 2010 ($12): Primarily grenache with various other grapes, the fresh ripe bouquet of cherry and plum opens into a well balanced palate with a touch of spice and tannin, ending in a medium nish.>>Gruet Blanc de Blanc 2007 ($25): An outstanding sparkling wine from New Mexico, made by a traditional French champagne house. You will nd aromas and avors of pears, apples and citrus combined with classic toasted almonds and an elegant mineral nish.>>Trimbach Riesling Alsace 2008 ($18): This classic opens with a nose of white peach and apple, meshing with citrusy avors, and nished with good acidity and a mineral nish. Very con-sistent quality from year to year, as well as a great value for Alsatian riesling. P Theres no agonizing over what to eat on Thanksgiving or other holiday feasts, but selecting the right wines that pair with those rich and divergent fla-vors is a different matter. Whether your meal is traditional turkey, ham or per-haps seafood, there are great wines that will serve as the perfect complement. Normally you would pair simple wines with complex foods, and complex wines with simple foods. But holiday feasts are a mixture of simple and com-plex dishes, which presents a challenge when choosing wines for the holidays. Highly extracted reds made from cabernet sauvignon, merlot and their blends can clash with the fruit and acid-ity of turkey and the ubiquitous cran-berry sauce. Also, the rich and complex wines made from the chardonnay grape will fall flat with the pairing of gravies and heavy starches. That doesnt mean you absolutely cant serve any of these, but it will depend on the wines intensity and fla-vor components. If you are looking for a white wine, try a Rhone varietal like marsanne. Marsanne is a fuller bodied wine with a higher alcoholic content (13 percent or higher) that pairs well with creamy sauces and complex flavors. This wine is a good substitute for an oaky chardonnay, as it will complement rather than conflict with the complex flavors of ham and lamb, crab and lobster. Additional pairing suggestions include cheeses and chicken dishes. Alsatian riesling and gewurztraminer have long been favorites of mine with festive holiday foods. Because the Alsa-tian diet is so diverse „ not to mention meat-centric „ these drier-style wines perfectly accompany turkey and other roasted meats. The gewurztraminer typically has aromatic tropical fruit aromas, with fla-vors of apricot and pear, usually ending with a citrusy mineral finish. Try this with sausage and roasted pork dishes, as well as turkey. The drier Alsatian riesling is fuller bodied than that from other regions and can stand up to the piquant richness that adorns our holi-day tables. Suggested pairings include seafood, chicken, duck and ham dishes, as well as fuller-bodied choucroute and roasted turkey with all the trimmings. For a special touch, champagne will work well with roasted turkey or chick-en. Look for a vintage champagne that has a little more body. Flavors will range from nutty and honeyed to those of fresh baked bread, mushrooms and a touch of citrus. The effervescence is great for clearing the palate between dishes. Red wines can be a challenge with a menu rich in flavors, but there are sev-eral wine grapes that work well with a diverse menu. Grenache is a multi-purpose wine when it comes to the holidays. Typi-cal flavors include fruit-forward berry flavors with spicy undertones, light tan-nins and a smooth long finish. Grenache is especially suited for lamb and pork dishes because of the spiciness and bal-anced tannins. Pinot noir is another favorite this time of year. It is versatile in flavor so it can pair with a wide range of foods. Seafood dishes, especially salmon and tuna, are good with pinots, because their higher fat content balances with the light tannin structure of light to medium bodied pinot noir. Full-bodied pinot noir is exceptional with roasted duck, chicken and quail, as well as meat dishes including lamb, veal and pork loin. Remember, however, that the most important factor at a holiday meal is to enjoy the company. Below are some wines Id recommend with richly flavored foods. Q jim McCRACKEN O JIM MCCRACKEN/FLORIDA WEEKLY Tres Picos and Crozes Hermitage go well with holiday meals.
