A2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSexSex.Sex, sex, sex, sex. More sex.Delicious, nourishing, replenishing sex. Bell-ringing, heart-twanging, cross-your-eyes-and-fall-down-senseless sex. Is there anything else in the world so powerfully appealing, so utterly beautiful and so richly corporeal „ at once so earthy and so ethereal „ as sex? Besides hunger and thirst, is there any other urge or any need so profoundly and soakingly compelling as sex? No, of course not. Deny it or even try to, and you mark yourself as a patient in need of a therapist. Either that or youre a dead man or a dead woman. In which case call 9 -1-1 and hope they can revive you with an emergency sex pump, or something. Merely thinking about sex makes me want to go have it right now, in the same way that merely thinking about a bottle of Krug 1996 makes me want to go have a case of cham-pagne right now. That would only set me back a few thousand dollars. Of course, Im no model for high-falutin desire: Merely thinking about Pabst Blue Rib-bon sucked like love from the pear-shaped orifice of an ice-sweating can somewhere in the humid summer bosom of a woods-swamped meadow at dusk to the lap-slide, finger-picking fire of a Kelly Joe Phelps guitar, makes me want to go have that, too. Followed by sex. Which would set me back about 95 cents, if the sex were free. But no sex is ever free. If your sex comes freely and warmly given, the price is your heart. Its called l ove, and it costs everything you have „ 100 percent, all the time and all the way, every night and every day. Even if it doesnt, it will still cost you something. Some part of yourself, along with whatever other costs may arise. Although thats the way of human beings, I dont care. When I look at the crisp formality, at the presumption of moral authority, at the easy assumption of command adopted by such men as David Petraeus, whose adulterous sex cost him the directorship of the CIA last week and who knows what else „ or at the mantle of leadership accepted by any presi-dent, political leader, senior public official or high-ranking, oath-taking military or civilian commander „ I expect them never to have sex. Not only that, but I expect them never to go to the bathroom, never to appear with dirty fingernails or bad breath, and never to look foolish, in or out of the public eye. In other words, I expect them not to be human. At first glance. But on second thought, Im willing to let them have a little sex. Only for about 10 min-utes between the hours of 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., however, when they arent working to protect or promote me, my family and my friends. And then they can have sex only with their spouses or with one significant partner, if they arent married. Not two significant partners. Not a significant partner, and an almost as significant partner. Not a spouse along with someone who would have been a spouse if she or he hadnt gotten to the party of life too late. Im still not willing to let them go to the bathroom or have any other needs, however. If they do, I dont want to know about it. Even the CIA and the FBI probably dont want to know about it. By the way, I dont want the CIA or the FBI to have any sex, either „ with anybody, ever, anywhere. And I have no second thoughts about that decision, whatsoever. For the most part, I think our leaders live up to my expectations. Clearly, they arent humans „ you can tell by the way they act. Theyre aliens. Have you ever seen such a bunch of goofballs as political leaders or appointees dressed to the nines, trying to look like they know something the rest of us dont? Often they do know something we dont, of course. But not about sex. You and I know as much or more about sex as the worlds most powerful leaders have ever known. Kings, queens, presidents, emperors, prime ministers, chiefs, generals, directors of this or that „ doesnt matter. They may have had more sex, but they sure dont know any more about it. Too often they screw it up completely, so to speak. Just look at our presidents.Thomas Jefferson. Warren Harding. Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, John Ken-nedy, Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton „ God amighty. Brilliant in their fields, some of them (not Harding), but sex slaves all, appar-ently. Come down through the ranks of senators, representatives, governors, mayors and the like, and you have, just recently, Newt Gingrich, Jim McGreevey, L.A. Mayor Anto-nio Villaraigosa and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatick, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, Elliot Spitzer, Arnold Schwarzeneg-ger, Gary Condit and Vito Fossella, to name only some. What I dont understand is how anyone would want to have sex with these guys „ all guys, because men have been the ones for whom the door to power has always opened most readily, and so their numbers are largest. For the most part, theyre so physically ugly. Petraeus, for example, looks like a worn handbag with blue eyes, seconded to a thrift shop. Newt Gingrich looks like a fat frog who just licked a fat fly off a lily pad on a farm pond in south Georgia. Elliot Spitzer looked like a cross between a prune and a potato, with facial features. So the desire to sleep with them must spring, in part, from an attraction to power „ not simply to the man, or the simple man, or the man who is quite simply ugly. And thats not about sex, exclusively. Instead, its about power and wealth. Its about status and conquest. And its about lying.Therein lies the problem, Ive decided. Its not the sex, whether I like the notion of these ambitious careerists having sex or not. Its the lying. If they lie to their spouses, theyll lie to us at the drop of a hat, any time they feel like it. And thats something we cant tolerate, even if it has occurred frequently in the once upon a time.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY GUEST OPINIONPhilanthropy connects individuals to causes and one another amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Now the work of movements beginsThe election is over, and President Barack Obama will continue as the 44th president of the United States. There will be much attention paid by the pun-dit class to the mechanics of the cam-paigns, to the techniques of microtar-geting potential voters, the effectiveness of get-out-the-vote efforts. The media analysts will fill the hours on the cable news networks, proffering post-election chestnuts about the accuracy of polls, or about either candidates success with one demographic or another. Missed by the mainstream media, but churning at the heart of our democracy, are social movements, movements without which President Obama would not have been re-elected. President Obama is a former community organizer himself. What happens when the community organizer in chief becomes the commander in chief? Who does the community organizing then? Interestingly, he offered a suggestion when speaking at a small New Jersey campaign event when he was first run-ning for president. Someone asked him what he would do about the Middle East. He answered with a story about the legendary 20th-century organizer A. Philip Randolph meeting with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Randolph described to FDR the condition of black people in America, the condition of working people. Reportedly, FDR lis-tened intently, then replied: I agree with everything you have said. Now, make me do it.Ž That was the message Obama repeated. There you have it. Make him do it. Youve got an invitation from the presi-dent himself. For years during the Bush administration, people felt they were hitting their heads against a brick wall. With the first election of President Obama, the wall had become a door, but it was only open a crack. The question was, Would it be kicked open or slammed shut? That is not up to that one person in the White House, no matter how powerful. That is the work of movements. Ben Jealous is a serious organizer with a long list of accomplishments, and a longer list of things to get done, as the president and CEO of the National Asso-ciation for the Advancement of Colored People. 2013, he notes, is a year of sig-nificant anniversaries, among them the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, as well as the 50th anni-versaries of the assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham, Ala., church bombing that killed four young Afri-can-American girls. President Obamas 2013 Inauguration will occur on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Jealous told me on election night, as Mitt Romney was about to give his concession speech, We have to stay in movement mode.Ž Young immigrants are doing just that. Undocumented students, getting arrest-ed in sit-ins in politicians offices, are the modern-day civil-rights movement. There are other vibrant movements as well, like Occupy Wall Street, like the fight for marriage equality, which won four out of four statewide initiatives on Election Day. In the aftermath of Super-storm Sandy, and despite the enormous resources expended by the fossil-fuel industry to cloud the issue, climate change and what to do about it is now a topic that President Obama hints he will address, saying, in his victory address in election night, Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. ... We want our chil-dren to live in an America that isnt bur-dened by debt, that isnt weakened by inequality, that isnt threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.Ž It was pressure from grass-roots activists protesting in front of the White House that pushed Obama to delay a decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, proposed to run from Can-ada to the Gulf of Mexico. More than 1,200 people were arrested at a series of protests at the White House one year ago. Now a group is blocking the construction of the southern leg of that pipeline, risking arrest and even injury, with direct-action blockades in tree-sits and tripods in Winnsboro, Texas, two hours east of Dallas. When those who are used to having the presidents ear whisper their demands to him in the Oval Office, if he cant point out the window and say, If I do as you ask, they will storm the Bastille,Ž if there is no one out there, then he is in big trouble. Thats when he agrees with you. What about when he doesnt? The president of the United States is the most powerful person on Earth. But there is a force more powerful: People organized around this country, fighting for a more just, sustainable world. Now the real work begins.

BY LESLIE LILLYPresident and CEO, Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin CountiesIf you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.Ž „ Booker T. WashingtonTake a minute to consider the impact that philanthropic work plays in our soci-ety „ the billions of dollars donated every year, the programs and services established to benefit the less fortu-nate, the lives changed. Through phi-lanthropy, we connect individuals to causes and to each other. We foster civic participation and improve the quality of life for all people. From Nov. 12 through 18, Philanthropy Week will help recognize the critical role that we all play in supporting a thriving local community. This week also serves as Community Foundation Week, and we hope to increase understanding of the value that philanthropic foundations offer to make it easier for individuals and businesses to invest in the chari-table causes they care about most. On National Philanthropy Day (Nov. 17), the Association of Fundraising Professionals will recognize the great contributions of philanthropy „ and those people active in the philanthropic community „ for the enrichment of our world. In the United States alone, there are more than 1 million charitable organizations, and Americans give more than $300 billion annually to charitable causes. Through private voluntary asso-ciations, many individuals make contribu-tions to our nations well-being in areas such as health care and social services, education and the arts, economic devel-opment and environmental protection. As Americans continue to join together each year to meet the needs of local communities, their generosity and desire to make a difference are helping to change the lives of millions of people. Through their involvement with the charities they support, Americans are able to learn and grow from their expe-riences. More importantly, they are able to share a feeling of fulfillment. Here in South Florida, our citizens provide a harvest of goodwill and char-ity „ neighbors helping neighbors and individuals and organizations helping those in need. The Foundations role is to help charitable individuals and busi-nesses meet the critical needs of our communities by distributing grants and scholarships within Palm Beach and Mar-tin Counties. Our goal is to demonstrate leadership, working in tandem with other local resources to address immediate and emerging needs and challenges. No matter how you define philanthropy, whether it is a love of humankind or an activity intended to promote human welfare, the end result is a positive one. During Philanthropy Week, and as we enter the season of Thanksgiving, let us all give thanks for the thousands of indi-viduals, businesses and non-profit orga-nizations that are working together to make our communities a better place to live by sharing their gifts of time, treasure and talent every day. We hope to inspire more people to consider the many ways in which they can give back to make a real difference in the lives of others. As one of Floridas largest community foundations, the Community Founda-tion for Palm Beach and Martin Coun-ties advances the quality of life, citi-zen engagement and regional vitality through its promotion of philanthropy. Founded in 1972, the Foundation has total assets of more than $140 million. In 2011, the Foundation awarded more than $8.2 million in grants and led initiatives to address critical issues of common concern among our regions communities including hunger, home-lessness, affordable housing and water conversation.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESSafer anesthesiaAdvance screening and other techniques reduce risk BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhile no medical procedure or medication „ or even home remedy, for that matter „ can ever be completely without risk, safer anesthetic agents, monitoring by specially trained veterinary technicians, and protocols that stress a pets safety and comfort before, during and after anesthesia have minimized risks substantially, even for older and chroni-cally ill pets. Thats the good news. The bad news? Pet owners too often opt out of potentially life-saving protocols or dont follow veterinary advice before sedation, increasing the risks for their pets. With proper pre-op care, anesthetic risk is very low. That wasnt always the case, of course, and old fears based on old informa-tion can be difficult to ease. But dont let your fears keep you from providing your pet with care that can dramatically improve quality of life, such as necessary dental care. (If you doubt how much, just think of how desperate you were for dental care the last time you broke a tooth or even had a toothache!) Bringing your knowledge up to date and working with your veterinarian to minimize risk will help you make the best decisions when it comes to your pets care. So whats changed in recent years? In a word: everything. Everything, that is, except your veterinarians guidelines for how to present your pet on the day of a procedure „ with an empty stomach. Anesthetic drugs tend to induce vomiting, and that can lead to aspiration pneumonia. Thats because the larynx relaxes during anesthesia, which means vomit may end up going down the trachea to the lungs instead of through the esophagus and back to the stomach. And once in the lungs, pneumo-nia can develop. If you give your pet food or water after midnight on the day before surgery, call your veterinarian and fess up. Its always better to reschedule an elective procedure than to go forward at higher risk than necessary. Your active role in your pets anesthesia may not have changed much, but thats not true of the role of your pets veterinarian and veterinary technicians in a pre-anes-thetic examination and diagnostics. These are intended to spot and address any health problems your pet has before anesthesia. While many pet lovers probably think of veterinary anesthesia as a gas given through a mask over the animals face, the modern practice of preparing an animal for surgery is a no-size-fits-all combination of inject-able medications (often combining anes-thesia and pain-control agents), anesthesia-inducing gas and pure oxygen „ the latter two delivered through a breathing tube to maintain an animals unconscious state. The use of intravenous fluids during anesthesia is another safety measure, meant to allow a veterinarian to react rapidly if something unexpected happens during surgery. Keeping tabs on it all is a veterinary technician with special training in monitor-ing the animal during anesthesia, providing the surgeon with the information he or she needs to adjust or react to any unforeseen problems. Heating pads are another safety measure, preventing organ damage if a pets body temperature dips „ and increasing comfort as a pet recovers. Just as the pre-anesthetic advice from the veterinarian needs to be followed to the let-ter, so, too, do any take-home instructions. While pain medications and antibiotics may already be on board as the pet leaves for home, these medications may also need to be given in the days to follow. The improvements in anesthetic agents and protocols have such high levels of safety that you should no longer dismiss essential care because of what may be an outdated knowledge of the risk. Do your part to help your pet, and your veterinarian will do the rest. Q Having a technician carefully monitor a pet during surgery is one of many ways veterinarians reduce anesthetic risk.

(They meet at bars and restau-rants, where management gives winners token gifts in exchange for the increased business.) A prosecutor told the Tampa Bay Times that Florida law defines illegal gamblingŽ as any game that permits players to win something „ even if they dont have to ante up.Ž The raid (dur-ing which players were ordered to keep their hands where the officers could see them) came after a months-long under-cover investigation.Recurring themesQ Among the most creative illegal behaviors are those of clever smug-glers „ or immigrants trying to enter a country illegally. In September, two Moroccans tried to smuggle a Guinean man into Spain at the Melilla border in north Morocco by disguising him as a Renault car seat. One Moroccan dr ove, with the passenger perched on a seat in which the foam had been removed to make room for the Guinean. A police spokesman called the attempt novel.Ž Q Indias notorious bureaucracy records deaths particularly ineptly, to the advantage of men seeking an alter-native to divorce. They find it easier merely to swear out a death certificate on one wife so they can marry another, but that means the first wife will face years, and maybe decades, of campaign-ing to convince officials that she is not dead. BBC News chronicled the plight of Ms. Asharfi Devi, now 64, in Septem-ber as she was finally declared aliveŽ after being deserted by her husband at age 23 and ruled dead at age 40. After Ms. Devi finally earned a hearing and brought relatives and evidence to the village council, deliberations took eight more months. Notwithstanding the rul-ing, the husband stuck to his story. Q Puzzlingly, adults continue to accidentally ingest improbable objects, often seemingly unaware of what they did. Lee Gardner, 40, of Barnsley, Eng-land, swallowed a plastic fork 10 years ago, but said he forgotŽ about it until violent stomach pains forced him to the hospital in August. And British stu-dent Georgie Smith, 19, became the latest person to accidentally swallow a regular-sized toothbrush (though the first doctor she consulted told her he couldnt spot any toothbrushŽ on an X-ray). (With kids, the phenomenon is more understandable. Sinus-suffering Isaak Lasson, 6, of Salt Lake City was finally diagnosed in August to have accidentally stuck a Lego piece up his nose three years ago, and Hector Flores Jr., 7, of New York City, was found in October to have swallowed the whistle mechanism of a plastic duck, causing him to tweet when he laughed.) Q Darren Hieber, 33, became the most recent person to choose drastic means to reconcile with an ex. Twice Mr. Hieber, of Onawa, Iowa, arranged to have himself shot in order to win his ex-wifes sympathy. The first hit man shot Mr. Hieber in the leg, but the wife still ignored him, and a second job was arranged in March, with two different shooters, but that failed, also. Adding to his frustration, Mr. Hieber was sen-tenced to 10 years in prison in August because it is illegal in Iowa to have yourself shot.UpdatesQ Former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, who made the wide stanceŽ famous when he explained his alleged, notorious restroom encounter with another man in June 2007, has been sued by the Federal Election Commission because he used $217,000 in campaign donations to fund his legal defense to the resulting indecent exposure charg-es. Sen. Craig pointed out that visit-ing the restroom (irrespective of any alleged activities there) occurred during the ordinary course of Senate travel and thus that he was entitled to spend campaign funds. Q Two FBI agents, providing a backstory to underwear bomberŽ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallabs Christmas-time 2009 attempt to bring down an airliner in Detroit, said they believe the man accustomed himself to the tricked-out scivvies beforehand by wearing them full-time for the three weeks leading up to his flight (except for bathing). The agents, speaking to Detroits WXYZ-TV in September, suggested wearing them so long might have ruined the detona-tion mechanism.Bite backHattiesburg, Miss., dentist Michael West has for years been a well-com-pensated, prosecution-friendly expertŽ witness who claimed he could match bite marks on victims bodies to bite patterns of whichever defendant the prosecutor wanted convicted. In doz-ensŽ of cases, according to an Associ-ated Press report, he helped persuade judges and jurors that his analysis was just as solid as fingerprint identifica-tion. (Other forensic experts regularly ridiculed Wests science.Ž) In August, the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Miss., uncovered a 2011 deposition in which Mr. West finally admitted that his bite-mark analysis should not have been used in court cases. It is not yet known how many defendants trials were taint-ed by Mr. Wests testimony.Least-competent criminalsQ Jamel Wilson, 18, in Knoxville, Tenn., became the most recent hapless carjacker forced to abort his gunpoint heist after discovering the car was a stick shift, which he could not drive. He fled on foot but was arrested minutes later. Q David Weber, 53, was arrested in Miami Beach in September, minutes after allegedly stealing items from a locked car, including a credit card. Police were called when Mr. Weber tried to use the card at a nearby bar and learned to his dismay that the card belonged to the bartender.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYre-election. Ms. Atwater has had a three-decade career in marketing, and her sister, Mrs. Unruh, has stayed busy with a career in retail and raising children. Coinciding with all of that, demolition has begun on the old Palm Beach Mall to make way for an outlet mall. But as the mall comes tumbling down, the memories come tumbling out. Mrs. Unruh threatens to share a story.The one about the guy that bit me on the escalator in Richards department store?Ž Commissioner Marcus asks. See, youre telling it,Ž Mrs. Unruh says, laughing. I have the articles still from when we went to court,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. You got so mad,Ž Mrs. Unruh says.Karen has the longest legs youve ever seen,Ž Ms. Atwater says. Miniskirts were in „ micro-minis,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. Some guy bit her on the butt,Ž Ms. Atwater says. The women laugh.The only reason Commissioner Marcus knew what happened was because a co-worker yelled out, What are you doing?Ž You didnt feel it?Ž Mrs. Unruh asks.Well, I felt something, in case youre wondering,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. Turned out the man was a serial biter.We called him Jack the Nipper „ because it turned out hed done it to other girls, too, not just me,Ž Commis-sioner Marcus says. It was a different time, and the charges didnt stick. The public defender made me stand up and said my dress was as long as his coat. And Im like, So what? Whats the problem?Ž Commissioner Marcus says. Back then, they said you asked for it, right?Ž Mrs. Unruh says. Sorta like that,Ž Commissioner Marcus says.Westward shiftAt the time, Commissioner Marcus worked in housewares and Mrs. Unruh worked in mens wear at Richards, a store that compared to other midlevel depart-ment stores of the day such as J. Byron or J.C. Penney. Ms. Atwater worked in acces-sories at Penneys. Commissioner Marcus later sold jewelry at Zales in the mall. When the mall was built in 1967, it represented a fundamental westward shift in West Palm Beach, as shoppers went less and less to the citys downtown, which was home at the time to a Burdines, a large Montgomery Ward and a Belks store. Sears still was on South Dixie Highway between Belvedere Road and Southern Boulevard. I loved that mall,Ž Ms. Atwater says with a sigh. In 1970, what wasnt there to love about working at a shopping mecca like that mall? Its futuristic fountains and bridges were a tribute to the Space Age, and unlike the plein air spaces of downtown, it was air-conditioned. The developer, Edward J. DeBartolo Corp., boasted that it was the largest mall in the Southeast. The conical West Palm Beach Auditorium, later dubbed The Leaky Teepee,Ž had been built across the intersection from the mall site in 1965, and it seemed the sedate Southern town of West Palm Beach was not so sleepy anymore. We used to take the bus downtown and visit my dad at the Pan American Building,Ž Ms. Atwater says. The eleva-tor had a lady who had a hibiscus in her hair and she used to take us up to Daddys floor, and then wed get a couple bucks and then wed go down and buy lunch at Woolworths.Ž They had a movie theater there, too,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. And then we ordered our Weejuns from J.C. Harris,Ž Mrs. Unruh says. The Atwaters father, John Stafford Atwater, was an FBI agent whose office was across the parking lot from the old Burdines in downtown. After his retirement from the FBI, he became police chief for North Palm Beach. Commissioner Marcus and Mrs. Unruh were inseparable in school. They either rode the bus or car-pooled together from junior high onward.IndependenceBut perhaps that old downtown Burdines was a bit too close to Mr. Atwaters office. One day, my dad comes home. We were in high school and he says, How was school today? And I said, Great. And he goes, Who drove? You or Karen? And I said, Karen. And he says, You know what, I saw her in Burdines today.Ž It seems someone had skipped school.Ah, the advantages of having a car.Karen loved to drive. She was designated driver before there were designated drivers,Ž Ms. Atwater says. Burdines continued to be a part of their lives. Around 1980, Mrs. Unruh worked for the department store chain in Miami. The company was in the process of upgrading its telecommunication sys-tems, and she was involved in that transi-tion. One of the stores she had to visit was the old store at Clematis Street and Dixie Highway, which was being moved to the Palm Beach Mall. The store had an operator who manually connected calls on a switchboard to the appropriate department. Those women were losing their job and they had been there for years,Ž she says. It was an anachronism even then, and the malls opening a decade earlier only served to underscore that change. When the mall opened up, it was kind of like a highlight,Ž Commissioner Mar-cus says. All those stores in one spot, I-95, we could driveƒŽ The interstate actually had not been built when the mall opened, but the shop-ping destination equaled independence for the girls. But the bus didnt go to the mall, so we had to drive,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. Interstate 95 opened in the 1970s, and as the mall and the western parts of West Palm Beach flourished, downtown West Palm Beach began to decline. J.C. Harris and Pioneer Linens are among the few businesses that survived downtowns downturn. But the mall itself began a slow death in the late 1980s after the Boynton Beach Mall and The Gardens Mall opened and lured away large numbers of its custom-ers. After the execution-style murder in 1999 of Nicholas Megrath, manager at the malls Chick-Fil-A, and the opening in 2000 of CityPlace, the mall rapidly began to lose key tenants before it finally closed in 2009. Of the malls anchor stores, only J.C. Penney remains open; plans are for Penneys to be part of the new outlet mall. That westward expansion marked the beginning of sprawl across the county. When the women were growing up, northern Palm Beach County was a very different place from what it is now. Commissioner Marcus began her county career in 1973 or 74, when she worked as an aide to Dennis Koehler, who then was commissioner for northern Palm Beach County. In many ways, the area was much the same as it had been in her youth. At that point, I-95 went only as far north as PGA Boulevard, many of the major routes were two-lane roads „ it wasnt until the late 80s that such roads as Alternate A1A and Military Trail were widened all the way up to Jupiter. There wasnt a lot up here, thats for sure,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. It was the MacArthur Foundation. It was like a blessing and a curse to us, because the bless-ing was they owned all the land and they werent going to sell it, and the curse was, they werent going to sell it. They were very difficult ...Ž And the curse was, it was our way or the highway,Ž says Ms. Atwater, who at the time worked for the foundation. They were difficult to deal with. But it ended up being a good thing because they didnt sell it for so long, and their business model at the time was to hold on. They only had JDM at the time,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. JDM „ the initials were John D. MacArthurs „ later became the country club community of BallenIsles. And that was one part of the 100,000 or so acres the MacArthur Foundation owned at that time in Florida. I remember when we sold the property to Forbes before (The Gardens Mall) was built. We did the whole master plan for PGA,Ž Ms. Atwater says. Pleasant memoriesMention of that time brought forth memories for all three women. As Com-missioner Marcus cleaned out her offices, she found pictures of herself with Ms. Atwater at the opening of The Gardens Mall, and pictures of herself at Mrs. Unruhs marriage to lobbyist Hugo Unruh „ the hitching,Ž as she calls it. I had been gone for 20 years when I came back in 89, because I went to the University of Florida, then ended up in Miami,Ž Mrs. Unruh says. But when the Atwater family first came up to North Palm Beach in the 1960s, there was a whole lot more of nothing than even when Commissioner Marcus took office two decades later. Back in the day, there was a Howard Johnson at U.S. 1 and Donald Ross Road in Juno Beach. There was nothing between Howard Johnsons and the Yum Yum Tree,Ž a furniture store just south of Indiantown Road, Mrs. Unruh says. There also was plenty of open space in North Palm Beach. My dad used to land his Navy helicopter there on Saturday nights and drop off his wash, when he was commuting from Jacksonville to Key West,Ž Commissioner Marcus remembers. Wed go outside on a Saturday night and theres this big, old Huey helicopter and hed get out with his gear on and have this white bag and say, Heres my laundry.Ž Mrs. Unruh remembers how she met MEMORIESFrom page 1 ER 1521, 2012 www a o JOHN SESSA / FLORIDA WEEKLYLEFT: Portions of the Palm Beach Mall park-ing lot are now being demolished.BELOW: The same area during the mall’s hey-day, in 1970.BOTTOM: Another entrance to the mall, which awaits demolition.

The Atwater fam-ily recently had moved from Coral Gables to North Palm Beach when Mr. Atwater was reassigned to a new FBI post. My first day of school, we had moved up here maybe two weeks before school started, and I had to walk to the bus stop up to Anchorage Drive, and as Im walk-ing there, out comes this tall girl off of Inlet, I think you all were renting, too,Ž she says. Yeah, we were. We had sold our house on Bay Road, and were getting ready to build on Country Club,Ž Commissioner Marcus says. So I walk out and heres this kind of gangly tall girl, and she wasnt as pretty then, and of course when youre in junior high, youre taller than the boys anyway. But poor Karen was really tall.Ž Says Commissioner Marcus: They called me the Jolly Green Giant.Ž She comes walking out of the house as I come walking by and from that point on, this was my best buddy,Ž Mrs. Unruh says.Political changesMrs. Unruh wanted to make friends at school, so she decided to run for trea-surer. Commissioner Marcus was her campaign manager. I lost by a few votes, but I got to meet everybody. That was start of a great friendship,Ž she said. And the next year I did run for the president and I did win that one. She was my campaign manager again.Ž That was at H.L. Watkins Junior High in Palm Beach Gardens, and Ed Eissey was principal. So then, many years later, because I wouldnt get into politics for anything, when I came back here, she would call me every once in awhile and go, We have to go walking neighborhoods, and Id go, I owe her, I owe her.Ž Commissioner Marcus chimes in: Walk the precincts!Ž In the 80s, Commissioner Marcus ran as a Democrat. Well, everybody in Florida was, werent they?Ž Commissioner Marcus says of the time she was growing up. Florida was largely Democratic; when Claude Kirk was elected in 1968, he was the states first Republican governor since the Reconstruction. It was only after 1990, when Palm Beach County switched from at-large commission districts to single-member districts, that she switched to the Repub-lican Party to better reflect her constitu-ency. We didnt become Republicans until Jeff decided to run for office,Ž Ms. Atwa-ter says. The Atwaters brother Jeff, who first was elected to the North Palm Beach Village Council and later was State Sen-ate president, now is the states CFO. I dont think you could win in Florida unless you were a Democrat,Ž Mrs. Unruh says. Politics has never come between these friends. As Mrs. Unruh says of her lobbyist husband, Hugo: Hell say something like, You could run something by her. And Im like, no, shes my friend. And hell go, You know, your friend has never voted for anything Ive brought before the county.Ž Commissioner Marcus says she is sure she has voted for at least something Mr. Unruh has brought before the commis-sion, though she does not remember what.Building a legacyThere definitely were some personalities on that commission. But even with 28 years of service, she was bested by Lake Lytal, who served a total 32 years on the commission. In the 80s there was Dorothy Wilken, known at times for her barbed comments. And who could forget commissioners Tony Masilotti, Warren Newell and Mary McCarty, all convicted on federal corrup-tion charges in the past decade? Then commissioner Jeff Koons pleaded guilty to one felony count of extortion and one misdemeanor count each of perjury and violating open meeting laws after he pressured opponents of a man-grove preserve along the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach. Through it all, Commissioner Marcus prevailed, just as her friends have endured career changes and marriages that failed. Her three children range in age from 32 to 35. She and her husband, Dennis, have five grandchildren; she also has two step-grandchildren. Ms. Atwater has a 20-year-old son, and Mrs. Unruh has two daughters, and has six grandchildren with a seventh on the way. Lately, she has focused on raising a 10-year-old step-grandson. Family is one legacy all three women have in common. But Commissioner Marcus has a more public legacy, particularly as a strong advocate for the environment. She pushed the county to buy land that will not be developed in such key areas as along U.S. 1 and the ocean. Since she has been in office, Commissioner Marcus has supported the acquisi-tion of more than 1,430 acres of park and recreation land in her district, according to the county. She remembers that when she came into office, the country was in the throes of a recession and condominiums were beginning to dot the beachfront of north-ern Palm Beach County. It was like, OK, we need to buy it now. We did a bond issue and it failed. So we went to Tallahassee and managed to get some grants and we got Ocean Cay, we got Diamondhead/Radnor, we got Coral Cove, two pieces over there, the rest of that section that was avail-able,Ž Commissioner Marcus remem-bers. On a larger scale, she supported the acquisition of 29,000 acres of environ-mentally sensitive land to protect it from development, according to the county. She also helped garner public support for a bond issue in 1991 to buy environ-mentally sensitive land, and again in 1999 to preserve environmentally sensitive lands and agricultural property in the Ag Reserve. So whats next?Well, Im joining a lot of boards right now. People are calling me up, saying, Will you join our board? Maltz Theatre asked me today. Im also going to stay involved with the environmental com-munity. Im volunteering with them, too,Ž she says. She is taking a break until January.Will she enter the political arena again? There are no decisions yet. I cant tell what Im going to do. Im either going to be really busy or really bored,Ž she says. Then there is more laughter as the three old friends gather around a 1970 Palm Beach Gardens High School year-book and remember a certain Oldsmobile packed with kids. You could fit a lot of people in them, and Karen never went anywhere with like, just one person. Karen filled out the car,Ž Mrs. Unruh says. It was an active carpool that took kids from Lake Park, Riviera Beach and North Palm to school. And a noisy one, too.I can remember us in that car one day, singing at the top of our lungs, Hey, Jude,Ž Mrs. Unruh says, singing the title. And the laughter of four decades continues. Q

The scientists found that mutations in a single gene, which is known to cause intellectual disabil-ity and increase the risk of develop-ing autism spectrum disorder, severely disrupts the organization of developing brain circuits during early childhood. This study helps explain how genetic mutations can cause profound cognitive and behavioral problems. It was pub-lished in the Nov. 9 issue of the journal Cell. The genetic mutations that cause developmental disorders, such as intel-lectual disability and autism spectrum disorder, commonly affect synapses, the junctions between two nerve cells that are part of the brains complex electro-chemical signaling system. A substan-tial percentage of children with severe intellectual and behavioral impairments are believed to harbor single mutations in critical neurodevelopmental genes. Until this study, however, it was unclear precisely how pathogenic genetic muta-tions and synapse function were related to the failure to develop normal intel-lect. In this study, we did something no one else had done before,Ž said Gavin Rumbaugh, an associate professor who led the new research, in a prepared statement issued by Scripps. Using an animal model, we looked at a mutation known to cause intellectual disability and showed for the first time a causative link between abnormal synapse matura-tion during brain development and life-long cognitive disruptions commonly seen in adults with a neurodevelopmen-tal disorder.Ž The study focused on a critical synaptic protein known as SynGAP1. Muta-tions in the gene that encodes this pro-tein cause disabilities in an estimated 1 million people worldwide, according to the paper. There are a few genes that cant be altered without affecting normal cog-nitive abilities,Ž Mr. Rumbaugh said. SynGAP1 is one of the most important genes in cognition „ so far, every time a mutation that disrupts the function of SynGAP1 has been found, that indi-viduals brain simply could not develop correctly. It regulates the development of synaptic function like no other gene Ive seen.Ž Using animal models that were missing just one copy of SynGAP1, as seen in some patients with intellectual disabil-ity, the scientists found that certain syn-apses develop prematurely in the period shortly after birth. This dramatically enhances what is known as excitabil-ityŽ „ how often brain cells fire „ in the developing hippocampus, a part of the brain critical for memory. The bal-ance between excitability and inhibition is especially critical during early devel-opmental periods, when neural connec-tions that ultimately give rise to normal cognitive and behavioral functions are forming. Interestingly, inducing these mutations after the critical development period was complete had virtually no impact on normal synapse function, and repairing these pathogenic mutations in adulthood did not improve behavior or cognition. These results imply that very early intervention is essential in neurode-velopmental disorders, particularly for cognitive problems. The team is now aggressively searching for the optimal period during development in which repairing these mutations is most ben-eficial. Rumbaugh speculates that successfully defining these treatment windows, combined with the fast-approaching ability to identify potential pathogenic mutations in utero, will provide a possi-ble path toward eradicating this type of intellectual disability and lowering the risks for autism. We believe a cure is possible,Ž he said. It is likely that there are many other single mutations out there that cause distinct forms of these spectrum disorders. Our strategy could be applied to these disorders as well.Ž Q Gardens Medical Center ER care is backed by full resources of hospitalNo one ever plans on being in a car accident or having a heart attack. We cant plan for the day when we are the one inside the ambulance on the way to the emergency room. Unfortunate-ly, accidents and unexpected illnesses can, and do, happen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 339,000 Americans are treated in emer-gency departments across the country every day. Those who arrive in the emergency room by ambulance may have a life-threatening condition that requires rapid transportation to receive care upon arrival, but patients still have a choice when being transported by ambulance as to where they are taken depending on their emergency. Life-threatening emergencies require immediate medical attention. But what about a swollen ankle, unexplained fever or puncture wound? The Ameri-can College of Emergency Physicians offers a list of symptoms that indicate a medical emergency, including: € Problems breathing€ Shortness of breath€ Pain or pressure in the chest or upper abdomen€ Vision changes€ Disorientation or confusion € Sudden or severe pain€ Bleeding that doesnt stop€ Persistent vomiting€ Coughing up or vomiting blood€ Suicidal feelings€ Unusual abdominal painWhether the injury or illness is minor or critical, patients want a cen-ter that offers emergency care backed by the full resources of a hospital. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers Emer-gency Department is known for offer-ing quality care that has been trusted for more than 40 years. Our emergency department offers more than 107 specialists who repre-sent more than 14 specialties on call to handle the various emergencies that come through our doors. Patients are comforted by the long tradition of high-quality care provided in their commu-nity at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers newly renovated emergency department and the ability to stay in their neighborhood if hospitalization is required. The new $13.6 million emergency department is a significant investment made by Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center to fulfill the communitys need.

This award reflects Good Samaritan Medical Centers commitment and success to an 85 per-cent or higher compli-ance rate for seven care measures over 12 months, according to a written statement from the hospital. Get With The Guidelines…Stroke helps Good Samaritan Medical Centers staff develop and implement acute, as well as secondary prevention guideline processes to improve patient care and outcomes. The program provides hos-pitals with a web-based patient manage-ment tool, best practice discharge proto-cols and standing orders. In addition, the program includes a robust registry and real-time benchmarking capabilities to track per-formance. The quick and efficient use of guideline procedures can improve the quality of care for stroke patients and may reduce disability and save lives. According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Associa-tion, stroke is one of the leading causes of death and serious, long-term disability in the United States, the hospital said in the statement. On average, someone suf-fers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. However, recent studies show that patients treated in hospitals participat-ing in the American Heart Associations Get With The Guidelines-Stroke pro-gram, receive a higher quality of care and may experience be tter outcomes,Ž said Lee H.

The studio is at 4755 PGA Blvd., in Midtown, in Palm Beach Gardens. Call 799-0555.Name: Sharon Forsythe. She was named Member of the Month for her success toward meeting her goals. Age: 54 City: Jupiter Occupation and family: Receptionist My husband is super proud of me and supports my goals and dreams.Ž Activities: I golf and work at Get in Shape for Women. Q. How did you decide to join the studio? A. I woke up one day and said, I am ready to get fit and in good health. Q. Did you have a training or exercise routine before you joined? A. No.Fighting to save your marriage? First, show your commitmentI didnt meet Steve until after his wife had already announced she was terribly unhappy and had consulted a divorce attorney. Steve was stunned that Beth was leaving him and said hed never seen it coming. Beth had apparently been complaining for years that Steve had not been available emotionally to her and their young family. Shed protested that he had time for everything but her. She stated that on evenings and weekends he barely looked up from his computer or the flat screen television. He was indignant and said she had no clue how much pressure he was under at work, managing a busy company. In his mind, sports were the only release he had, and she had no appreciation for all his many efforts to help out at home. Steve begged her to reconsider and offered to go for counseling, promising he would change if she would only give him the chance. Beth flatly refused, stating she had reached out to him for years, and her pleas had fallen on deaf ears. She was done.Its very disheartening when a therapist meets a couple for the first time after one of the partners has already contacted a divorce attorney. The aggrieved partner may come in for a conciliatory session or two, but oftentimes, theyve already hard-ened their hearts against the possibility of working out the differences. After weeks, months and years of frustration, this person may have begun to emotionally distance himself or herself, shoring up the courage and resolve to leave the relationship. In the process, theyve often stopped complaining. Iron-ically, because the fighting has stopped, the clueless partner may actually think things had improved at home. Its so easy to dismiss the complaints of our loved ones when we believe theyre nagging. When our partner irri-tates us with persistent negativity, we might be inclined to tune them out and to discredit everything they say. We can justify to ourselves that they are petty and unreasonable and feel put upon by their demands. We may even feel supe-rior, and believe that WE are the level headed ones and that life would go, oh so smoothly, if it were up to us.However, we must consider that although the complaints may be irritating (and the delivery offensive), there may actually be some merit to what theyre saying. And, importantly, its a sign theyre still invested in the relationship.Its when they stop complaining that we really have to be concerned. Sometimes, we become so complacent that we take our loved ones for granted and dont pay special care to their con-cerns.Its so interesting how many of us can remember our excitement when we were newly in love. We were so motivated then to please our partners. We made allow-ances for the irritating behaviors and gave our partners the benefit of the doubt. However, as we move forward in our committed relationships, theres a ten-dency to become less tolerant and more critical of our partners flaws. It becomes very upsetting to feel as if our actions and words no longer have an impact and to believe that our partners are no longer fully engaged in the relationship. We may rudely complain about what both-ers us and expect our partner to make the expected adjustments, even though weve just offended him or her with our tone and choice of words. Id like you to seriously consider how you would feel if YOUR partner said they were calling it quits. No one can decide for you whether your relationship is important enough to fight for, and how much effort you are willing to put in. However, if you feel strongly about preserving this bond, there are steps you can take that might just make the difference. The most important step is to tell your partner that youre genuinely committed to them and their happiness is important to you. A heartfelt apology for previous and ongoing hurts can be very powerful and would be much appreciated. This will only be effective if you truly mean it and are quite sincere in your presentation.Now is the time to pay attention to your contribution to the stresses of the relationship. It could make a huge difference if you made some changes in your attitude and behavior to show them that you did hear them after all. Pay attention to your tone of voice and choice of words. Sarcasm and derogatory com-ments cut like a knife. You know how to make your partners life easier (youve been reminded a thousand times!). If your partner asks you to call to let them know what time youll be coming home for dinner, just make the call. If youve been asked countless times to take out the garbage, just do it with a smile, and without being reminded. Your actions may be the catalyst that motivates your husband or wife to make important changes, as well. Treating your partner the way you would treat your closest friend can create a safeŽ envi-ronment, one where your partner may trust that things can really improve.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 A14 It appears Baby Boomers have retired retirement. Whether it is because they need to work to meet the mortgage or simply believe they are way too young to call it quits, the over-55 crowd is re-evalu-ating, repurposing and set-ting their sights on what some are calling rewire-ment.Ž And, in keeping with the Boomer penchant for hiring expertise in all areas of their lives, they are visiting retirement coaches in record numbers to help them transition into new careers. While the first Baby Boomers became eligible for full Social Security ben-efits last year, their deci-sion to stay in the work place has made them the only segment of the work force that is growing. In Palm Beach County Boom-ers downsized from media companies, jobless as the result of a very public bankruptcy or victims of a shyster who took down more than a few family fortunes have reinvented themselves for the next 20 years. Life coaching is a great opportunity to reach peo-ple who might not need therapy but are looking for ways to reach their goals and get unstuck,Ž said ther-apist, retirement coach and Baby Boomer April Forella, whose practice is based in Palm Beach Gardens. I ask open-ended questions about the past to facilitate moving forward and to alleviate stress. But retire-ment coaching is present and future driven.Ž Ms. Forella and other coaches use a number of techniques to help clients map out where they are now and the road to reaching where they would like to be. Said Linda Gradess, a board certified coach specializing in life and work transitions, I help people move from confusion and uncertainty to clarity so they can create a purposeful life. I help people focus on issues of identify and values and transition to a new life stage.Ž Adds Jennifer Sabin, who also works with corporations worldwide through her firm The Growth Management Group, The work we do is so individual. It is not cook-ie cutte r. We meet people where they are and part-ner with them to get where they want to go. Imagine if Mary Poppins came into your life.Ž Retirement coaches offer a roster of treatment types. You can meet with a coach for a one-on-one, do the work by phone or Skype. Sessions can range from 35 to 55 minutes and cost hovers around the $100-an-hour rate. Some coaches require a commitment of several months; others teach group sessions where the group performs the valuable service of support. There are all kinds of coaches,Ž said Ms. Sabin. One way to pick a coach, like any other service pro-fessional, is a personal refer-ral. I highly recommend you interview several coaches. You can do that by phone. Many coaches will offer a complimentary coaching session.Ž Ms. Gradess finds the conversation cafŽ approach especially effec-tive. You have 10-15 people sitting in a circle exploring provocative questions in a safe environment,Ž she said. We use (a) book as a framework, but employ other resourc-es like the Life Wheel and journaling. Classes last from six to eight weeks creating camaraderie and a sense of community that is important and use-ful. Each week there is a different focus.Ž The Wheel of Life is a popular tool in the transition toolbox. Users are asked to create a pie chart that reflects satisfaction in several areas of life and provides the basis for creating new goals. It gets people to think deeper about what they want to do, what they want to get out of life and what they want their legacy to be,Ž said Ms. Gradess. A coaching relationship begins with the establishment of trust and intimacy „ a safe space to explore who you are now, versus say, during the time you were immersed in a 30-year corporate career. There are a lot of issues related to ego and identity when somebody is completing a career,Ž said Ms. Sabin. It is very challenging. People design their lives around what they need rather than what they want. A good coach can translate the shifts „ the aha moments when everything is different because there is a change in insight and awareness. This is where you discover what you want to do.Ž Coaching happens through chatting, and Ms. Sabin says in a good coaching session the coach rarely talks. Coaching, like therapy, warns Ms. Sabin, can be unsettling. This is not a polite, appropriate conversation. It can be light and fun but at other times it can be uncomfortable,Ž she said. Coaching is an inten-tional conversation unique in its design.Ž Ms. Sabin says it is important to monitor the coaching relationship. If it becomes too friendly it may lose its impact. Its important to realize if it is no longer stretching you,Ž she said. Coaches are retained with a very specific purpose. We are there to make sure it happens. Coaching is not always tied up in a neat little bow. It can get messy.Ž Most coaches hold their clients accountable for moving along the newly defined path. Some assign homework; others rely on recaps at the end of the session to summarize the clients com-mitment in completing certain tasks between sessions. Meredith Kaplan, certified professional coach and licensed mental health counselor, has taken a very practical tack in her Palm Beach Gardens practice. Teaming up with career coach and branding specialist Syndee Feurer, Ms. Kaplan not only provides coaching but also resumeand cover-letter writing, job-search techniques, net-working ideas, social media profiles and other tools to help her clients find a job. My goal is to develop a road map with specific actions to be taken after examining financial and emotional issues and work option,Ž said Ms. Kaplan. We work with people to examine all these issues in the most optimistic way.Ž Coaching is looking at the big picture „ not just the immediate needs of new employment. I believe each of us have gifts and talents that are sometime hidden when there are chang-es and new chapters in life,Ž said Ms. Forella. There are very real barriers people have to get past. But there may also be ways to take steps toward finding new passions.Ž Q BY MARILYN BAUERmbauer@” oridaweekly.com Suggested reading:>> “Portfolio Life: The New Path to Work, Purpose and Passion After 50” by David Corbett >> “Authentic Happiness: Using the New Positive Psychology to Realize Your Potential for Lasting Ful llment” by Martin.

A16 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTING Worries of the wealthy apparent at Opal’s Family Office and Private Wealth ConferenceWhat the wealthy think and do is of interest not just to their wealthy peers, but also to the average investor and to those professionals selling their services and wares to this audience. The wealthy generally travel in small circles as they share the same high-end tastes and preferences in the places they live and vacation. They often share their investment ideas as they seek exceptional returns, safe havens and better tax strate-gies. Personal relations rank high in priori-ties, and they want to meet the people with whom they do business. Beyond the summer holidays in the south of France, another venue for wealthy families to share face-to-face and collabo-rate is at a family office/private wealth conference. Such events are usually held at high-end hot spots such as the Newports of the U.S. and the Zurichs and Dubais of the world. One of the most well known wealth conference hosts is Opal. I recently attended its Family Office and Private Wealth Manage-ment conference held in Napa. For three very full days (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.), attendees are deluged with investment ideas and strategies and a network of new contacts. Presenters include investment managers, energy companies, investment con-sultants, economists, lawyers, systems experts, etc. There are about 30 sessions. Some insights and comments struck at core truths about the very complex world in which we now live. Investment returns have been a challenge for many wealthy in 2012. Approxi-mately one-third of the wealth offices in attendance were holding cash in excess of 15 percent, and many have exposure to hedge funds which, through the end of September, are up 4.7 percent while the S&P is up 14 percent. But wealth families face more challenges than just investment returns; they want their intellectual, social and human capacities to be utilized. For them, it is not only about moneyƒ but it is a lot about money. The most repetitive underlying theme was the concern about the U.S. taxation policy. Tax advisors speaking at the confer-ence were advising their clients to prepare for higher levels of taxation. To the extent that families can re-domicle, they were moving from high-tax jurisdictions such as Illinois, California, New Jersey and New York to no/low tax states such as Florida, Texas and Wyoming. Families are becoming highly defensive in an environment of aggressive IRS audits. The audit rate for taxpayers earning $10 million or more has risen from 12.4 percent to 32.4 percent over the past four years. The IRS is not deploying local teams for many of these audits. The audit forensic specialist teams (disparagingly referred to as IRS wealth squadsŽ) come from all over the U.S. Two tax strategies were suggested before the years end. The first is cre-ating family limited partnerships, which allows the senior generation to hold major-ity shares and gift minority shares at very large valuation haircuts to children and grandchildren. The other tax strategy that was suggested was exiting the S Corp. structure and moving businesses into a family LLC or LLP. The S Corp. makes it difficult for family estate planning. Further, the panel felt that the family LLC or LLP imposed protection on descendants who consciously declined to enter into pre-nuptial agreements. Wealthy families often have a unique perception and style in investing. As it is fundamental to human behavior that people will not let go of what they under-stand, families do not want to let go of what has made them successful (e.g., real estate, startup companies, etc.) So, telling them to invest differently from their tried and true approaches can fall on unenthusiastic ears. They often think in the vein, We have been successful and will continueŽ while a manager or consultant is suggesting the need to diversify away from a single asset class. On investment strategies, they favored income with limited downside risk. That thinking is largely behind the recent years reallocation from equities ($750 billion out-flow) to fixed income assets ($850 billion inflow). In that light, there is concern that the no riskŽ investments have gotten too crowded and an exit from the (fixed incomes) crowded theater might prove difficult. Family investors often made their fortune controlling their destiny „ invest-ing in (uncontrollable) equity markets are not their comfort level. Investment risk was defined in multiple ways: dynamic and non-linear; permanent loss of capital; having multiple factors and multi durations; a mix of behavioral and chaos theory; happening quickly and not always rational as per chaos theory. Man-agers often hear: ŽI am very aggressiveŽ followed by the non sequitur, But please do not lose me any money.Ž Some other interesting facts: more than 30 percent of families portfolios are invest-ed in alternatives. Families are holding more cash than their norm. Families need to consider allocations that will stay with the portfolio through future generations as 80 percent of wealth in a family disappears by the third generation.It was not all work and no play. The conference ended with a visit to the Charles Krug winery and conference attendees met the Mondavi family members and heard about their generational planning and family business roles. Of all the ses-sions, I liked the Sauvignon Blanc panel the best. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

The BBB suggests shoppers make sure they totally understand the online price-matching policy by knowing which online com-petitors apply to the price-matching program, the dates the program is in effect, if coupons apply and what hap-pens if you have already purchased an item and find the price lower after-wards. Retailers have also rolled out layaways plant a month earlier than last year. Some are even offering additional incentives to use the layaway option, such as cutting fees and increasing the number of items eligible for layaway. When buying items on layaway, BBB advises con-sumers to carefully read the plans terms and con-ditions and to make sure they know how much time they have to pay off the item, when payments are due, how much they must put down, what the stor-age or service plan fees are, what happens if a pay-ment is missed, what is the refund policy and what happens if the layaway item goes on sale. Additionally, if the retailer offers a third-party layaway plan the BBB sug-gests finding out about the other com-pany by visiting bbb.org.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYthe souvenir flags marking the occa-sion, and to the threesome that went off number 15 tee at 9 a.m., PGA National member Sean Nealon, friend Ed Lyons (who also has play-ing privileges at the club) and media tagalong Tim Norris. Welcome to their eighth hole of the day, number 3, par four, sharp dogleg right, water left, 345 yards from the white tees. Ed Lyons has hit a healthy drive, maybe 260 yards, left-hand fairway, good angle to the pin. Sean Nealon has walloped a monster shot over the trees, cutting the dogleg, 320 yards. Lyons shakes his head in wonderment and calls out to him, Bubba! Thats in Mar-tin County!Ž Norris has duck-whacked his drive into some scenery, maybe 100 yards off the tee, and is looking for a way back through the shrubbery. The differing shots have posed the question perfectly. At the opening ceremony, just after some speechifying by Palm Beach Gardens City Councilman and former mayor Joe Russo and cur-rent Mayor David Levy, and just before a crisp ceremonial drive „ with a gold ball „ out long and slightly right by Tommy Fazio (and two far-hum-bler worm-burners by the politicians), Fazio himself had praised the courses superintendent, Justin Baker, and the contractor on its renovation, John Cope-land. Then he had said they wanted to make the course more pleasurable for rank-and-file players and more chal-lenging for better ones. Lyons, Nealon and Norris, and Norriss wife, Mary Jane (who is keeping score) have joined 60 players invited to put the full 18 to its first test, and this diverse threesomes drives and their second shots on this par four could very well tell the tale. Is this revised version of the course really better for a wider variety of play-ers, expert to execrable? The way these three handle the adventure will be telling, too. This out-ing cant be what writer Mark Twain is said to have called a good walk spoiled.Ž Cmon, theyre riding carts! But it CAN say something not just about a celebrated course in the PGA Nationals Arcadian setting but also about the game and why people play it.Measuring yardageIn his opening remarks, Tommy Fazio had talked about the personal con-nection. Thirty-two years ago we built this golf course,Ž he said, and when I was 12 years old I was out here picking up sticks. My father (Jim) worked on this, and his brother Tom, and his Uncle Mike and Great-Uncle George all worked on this, and were very proud of that and obvi-ously very proud that they changed the name to The Fazio. When we started I had my two daughters McKenzie and Riley come out. I had them doing GPS work and not picking up sticks.Ž Global positioning systems and other electronic aids, in fact, have changed the art of measuring yard-age. Nealon is finding his way around the course with a simpler electronic range finder: look through the eye piece, put the flag or other distant spot in the cross-hairs, click and get the distance. The real measure of a course, though, comes with feet on the grass and clubs in the hands. We basically rebuilt all the greens, reshaped them and made em bigger,Ž Tommy Fazio had said, created some different strategies, redid all the bun-kers, recontoured all the greens, gave it a different look, regrassed all the fairways. The most significant thing we did is reconfigured the tee boxes. Made them rectangular, moved tee boxes. We wanted to make it easier for the average players, but we also wanted to make it harder. We added another 200 yards to the back side.Ž Norris (hereinafter to be known as the party of the first part, engaged in the dubious act of self-reporting) has started the round happily, with a 4 on the par-three 15th, and hes nearly even with the others heading back to Number 1. Then his partners get warmed up. Lyons, age 70, and Nealon, age 35, played and knew the former Haig course and could critique the changes. As the party of the second part and the party of the third part off the tee, they depart for regions well up the fairway, leaving the party of the first part some parting gifts: FAZIOFrom page 1 PHOTO COURTESY OF BRIAN OARThe 7th hole of the updated and renamed Fazio course at PGA National offers water and tree challenges.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 | storeselfstorage.com TRINKETS OR TREASURES? the charit y. f hd Good-looking swing!Ž and Fairways wide open for you!Ž While Norris chases the bouncing ball into double and triple bogies, Nealon goes par-bogey-par, Lyons par-birdie-par. The day is almost perfect for golf, bright sun, just a slight breeze, and it gets even better when Eva Rogers of the food and concessions staff pulls up in a beverage and snack cart and says, Whatever you want, its on the house.Ž Attentive to all, she will spend the day criss-crossing the course, something like Norriss golf ball but with happier results. Now come the threesomes second shots on hole 3. Norris pulls out a five-iron and thwacks his Titleist 2 under the tree-limbs and up the fairway. Great recovery!Ž Lyons calls. He and Nealon will say that a half dozen times, as Nor-ris will be rehabbing the bejabbers out of his round, out of rough, under trees, out of sand, out of bounds. Not good. Lyons, though, IS good, and on The Fazios hole 3 he puts his second shot, a high arcing seven-iron, softly onto the green, 10 feet from the pin. Nealon is good, too; despite a disappointing shortfall on his second shot, he cozies his third up nicely with a wedge. Score, Ed? Four.Ž Sean? Four.Ž Tim? ...four, five....seven.Ž Nealon smiles in sympathy and says, Better luck starts now.Ž In the fairways, on the greens, the men like what they see. I dont know if its just because its shiny new,Ž Nealon says, but I think they did a great job with the back tees, a nice addition for people who want to play a little longer, and I really like what they did with the greens. A lot more contour. The grass is more consistent. They roll true.Ž Lyons adds, Right now, this is the course out here (of the five at PGA National) that I like best.Ž The new rectangular tee boxes, they say, provide better sight-lines to the pins, and some holes have been length-ened with new back tees. These three are playing from the white tees, and they are hitting their drives high, wide and handsome: Lyonss and Nealons are handsome, and Norriss are, all too often, high and wide. A few times, at least, they are also low and lost. That sets up second or third shot scrambles and gives Lyons another chance to call Great recovery!Ž The two other players rarely need to recover. Describing Lyons and his accu-racy, Nealon says, Hes sneaky good.Ž Lyons watches Nealon tee off on Num-ber 4 and says, Bubba! Another gorilla shot!Ž Whats even better is the spirit of the day. Every good shot is applauded, every recovery encouraged. A short Norris drive elicits, from Lyons, Nothing wrong with the middle of the fairway. Good for your suntan!Ž On Number 2, Norris coughs out a four-putt octopus,Ž an 8. That,Ž Nealon says, cheerfully, is handicap mainte-nance!ŽPlaying as friendsFor Nealon, executive director of The Waterford senior living community in Juno Beach, and Lyons, a consultant in senior living after a career in interna-tional real estate, a golf outing can be a way to do business. The two men play here, though, as friends. I met Ed through his son, Clark, who also works in senior living (and plays golf at a two handicap), and we just hit it off,Ž Nealon says. And Lyons says, I always enjoy Seans company out here.Ž Close friends, even business associates might bring out the needle. Todays jabs are gentle. Youre doing better since you had that beer,Ž Nealon says, and Lyons says, Thats not beer. Thats swing oil!Ž Then Nealon, the more garrulous, adds, I hate it when your golf gets in the way of my talk-ing.Ž For the course, they have nothing but kind words. The greens, they point out, are bigger and more undulating, recep-tive to delicate shots, impervious to low liners, incredibly consistent in roll and line. Nealon praises a set of three parallel traps on Number 12, now woven togeth-er with sandy strands, and likes them even more when his second shot alights on a thread of grass among them. And Lyons likens the reshaped Number 7, a scenic par 3 tucked against water along PGA Nationals main entry, to a calen-dar view. The last three holes, skirted in water, the men say, play as tough as any. Out here, on this day, good will prevails. On 12, Mary Jane jumps off the cart to vigorously rake a many-lobed sand trap, which Norris has turned into a battle scene from Lawrence of Arabia,Ž and the men promise to buy her lunch. The thing (with a trap) is to get out,Ž Lyons says. There are no pictures on the scorecard, just num-bers.Ž Nearing the end, the numbers seem to confirm the differences among the three players ... and the receptive range of the course. Nealon, despite a detour on 18, comes through with a solid 82. Lyons barely misses a couple of putts at the end and still puts up a 78, includ-ing 10 pars and two birdies. His second shots from fairway to green have been unerring. When playing golf, Lyons says, nobody is EVER perfect. Lyons might merit an A-minus, and Nealon is good for at least a B-plus. The Fazio gets an A. By most accounts, Norriss score of 107 deserves an F. No, no, Lyons says. Youve got a good swing, hit some great chip shots, even when they were your second or third. And Nealon says, The only way to get your moneys worth is to hit more shots.Ž Anyway, they say, next time youre breaking 100. Q MARY JANE FINE/FLORIDA WEEKLYThe threesome Ed Lyons, Sean Nealon and writer Tim Norris played the new course.

A26 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCollector Gannon estimates $2.97 billion in property taxes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe 2012 Property Tax Season began Nov. 1, and Tax Collector Anne M. Gan-non says that $2.97 billion is expected to fill the county coffers this year. We mailed 705,964 property tax bills, representing total tax revenue of $2.97 billion. This is down $38 million in ad valorem taxes from last year,Ž said Ms. Gannon in a prepared statement. The ad valorem tax, calculated by the property appraiser, represents $2.64 bil-lion in property values and the non-ad valorem tax makes up the balance, or $3.26 million.Ž The five cities in Palm Beach County that pay the most in property taxes are West Palm Beach (assessed value: $11 billion, total taxes: $69.7 million), Boca Raton (assessed value: $19.5 billion, total taxes: $61.9 million), Delray Beach (assessed value: $7.4 billion, total taxes: $48.5 million), Palm Beach Gardens (assessed value: $9.3 billion, total taxes: $38.8 million) and Town of Palm Beach (assessed value: $12.4 billion, total taxes: $38.8 million). The countys top 2012 taxpayers are: Florida Power & Light ($75,124,056.73), BellSouth Telecommunications ($7,250,377.39), Town Center at Boca Raton Trust ($6,956,090.53), US Sugar Corporation ($5,162,481.25), Garden Venture ($4,584,592.87), Breakers Palm Beach ($4,391,085.39), Panthers BRHS ($3,448,827.66), Okeelanta Corpora-tion ($3,428,665.66), Comcast of Flori-da ($3,283,730.94) and Phillips Point II ($2,966,932.90). Approximately 80 percent of taxpayers pay in November. That means they receive the maximum discount of 4 percent for early payment,Ž said Ms. Gannon. This tax savings can make a difference for families in these difficult economic times.Ž Some financially struggling families may qualify for some support, Ms. Gan-non added. The State of Florida has a tax deferral option for those with yearly incomes of $10,000 or less who are 65 years or older. The program only postpones the tax payment providing short-term relief but does not remove the obligation. To pay property taxes online, see taxcollectorpbc.com. There is also a Prop-erty Tax HelpŽ feature with additional information on payments, deadlines and discounts. Taxpayers may also pay by mail by sending checks to: Honorable Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, 301 North Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, 33401. The Property Control Number(s) must be included on the payment and returned with the stub and cannot contain staples or clips. Taxpayers can also visit the center, where there is a drop box in the lobby. For more information, call 355-1176. Q U.S. News names Leopold Law one of the best in 2012 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLeopold Law P.A. of Palm Beach Gardens received a Tier 1 ranking for per-sonal injury litigation from U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers and is featured in this months U.S. News & World Report. The ranking represented a review of more than 10,000 law firms ranked nationally or by metropolitan region. Best Lawyers is the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession. The 2013 edition of The Best Lawyers in America includes 41,284 lawyers cov-ering all 50 states and the District of Columbia and is based on more than 4.3 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. The third edition of these rankings features law firms given consistently impressive performance rat-ings by clients and peers. Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excel-lence and breadth of expertise. Q Clerk audit finds $1 million in questionable expenses SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAuditors with the Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptrollers office uncovered more than $1 million in questionable expenses by court-appointed guardians of elderly, minor children or incapacitat-ed individuals in the first year since Clerk Sharon Bock launched the Guardianship Fraud Hotline for Palm Beach County. More than 84 investigations have been conducted and local law enforcement is expected to arrest three suspects, the clerks office said in a prepared state-ment. Weve made tremendous strides in protecting Palm Beach Countys most vulnerable citizens,Ž Clerk Bock said. I know that, as word continues to spread about our Guardianship Fraud Hotline, well be able to find even more potential fraud, and make perpetrators think twice before taking advantage of our most vul-nerable citizens.Ž The programs success has drawn national interest. Clerk Bock recently presented at the annual conference for the National Guardianship Association, and was invited by the Tennessee Bar Association to speak about the Guardian-ship Fraud Hotline and audits as Ten-nessee considers possible changes to its conservatorship law. Clerk Bock created the Guardianship Fraud Hotline, the first of its kind in Palm Beach County and among the first in Florida, in anticipation of an increase in local guardianship cases, as well as the need to investigate claims of fraud, waste and financial mismanagement. Anyone who suspects a guardian, family member, attorney or caregiver of improper financial activities such as stealing money from a wards account, selling off a wards property or mak-ing suspicious loans or money transfers, should call 355-3728 or see mypalmbeach-clerk.com/fraud. Those reporting suspicious activities can remain anonymous. Q Jewish children’s agency receives accreditation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Service (AFJCS), a local social service agency providing dozens of pro-grams and services to area residents, has received reaccreditation from the Coun-cil on Accreditation. This agency continues to be high on the honor roll of the agencies we review for accreditation,Ž said the Councils CEO Richard Klarberg at a recent gathering of the AFJCS board and staff. Your highly professional staff and outstanding deliv-ery of services are of great benefit to those you serve.Ž The Council on Accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organizations administrative func-tions and service delivery practices, the agency said in a prepared statement. All are measured against international stan-dards of best practice, which determine if services are accessible, appropriate, based in the community, coordinated, cul-turally competent, evidence-based, indi-vidualized, o utc omes-oriented, provided by a skilled and supported workforce, respectful of individual rights, strengths-based, supportive of partnership, child and family focused, treat all people with dignity, involve family and provider col-laboration, and addres s child o utcomes. To achieve accreditation, an organization provides written evidence of compli-ance. Then a group of specially trained volunteer reviewers confirm the report through a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff and clients. We are honored to receive this reaccreditation, as it is serves as a stamp of approval for all that we do on behalf of the community,Ž said AJFCS CEO Neil Newstein. We couldnt achieve this honor without our incredible family of board members, staff, volunteers and supporters.Ž The AJFCS serves Palm Beach County by helping individuals and families fulfill the Jewish value of tikkun olam. They provide information and referral, coun-seling and support groups, geriatric and child psychiatry, guardianship, case man-agement and companions for the elderly. The agencys mission also incorporates specialized services for the Jewish popu-lation, including a project that addresses the unique needs of Holocaust survivors.

Long before there was Phil Spector and his Wall of Sound, there was Stan Kenton. In the 40s and 50s, the band leader was known for HIS Wall of Sound. Mr. Kenton began his career in the 1930s, but formed his first orchestra in 1941, and recorded his signature Artistry in RhythmŽ shortly thereafter. Mr. Kenton died in 1979, but his legacy continues with trumpeter Dennis Noday, who performs a tribute to the Wall of Sound in a concert Nov. 16 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. If anyone would know that Kenton sound, its Mr. Noday. He had a five-year stint as lead trumpeter with the Stan Kenton Orchestra. That led to seven recordings. He followed that by performing a few years with the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SAL TY NIGHTSWalking the mean streets of the SouthThis week Im visiting a Southern state, a place in the nation so conser-vative it makes conservative parts of Florida look like liberal enclaves. The Confederate flag no longer flies above the capitol here, but it might as well. Id hate to call it backward „ someone might shoot me. The women, of course, are all Southern belles, schooled in that subtle sense of propriety theyve been teach-ing girls here since cotton was king. As I recently found out, its the kind of place where no self-respecting woman would wear red pants or red lipstick or „ heaven forbid „ both at the same time. Im staying at a bed and breakfast in the historic downtown, a cute old home where Civil War speeches were once made on the front porch. Every morning, the owners serve scrambled eggs alongside slabs of country ham. Im convinced they have me on a secret weight-gain regimen. Amidst all this Southern flair, I discovered a small theater that shows art house films, and on an afternoon off I decided to see a docu-mentary that was playing. For the occasion, I slipped on my big city clothes „ red pants, knee-high boots, fire engine red lip gloss „ the type of outfit I wear every week elsewhere and never get a second glance. No one seemed to notice me on my walk to the movie the-ater. It was late in the afternoon, and most people were at work. The few folks I passed nod-ded polite-ly and moved on. In the theater itself, I blended in with the small crowd of older folks and art students from the nearby university. There was even another young woman there in cherry red pedal pushers. But the walk home was a different story. The movie let out as the sun dipped behind the buildings and the light drained from the sky. Suddenly, I was the only person on the streets. The houses that had looked homey and welcoming during the afternoon were cast in shadows, and I hurried past their vacant exteriors. Groups of men leaned against graffiti walls, and one or two of them called out as I passed. My palms started to sweat. As I entered the final stretch, I crossed in front of an old gas station where a young man filling up his car gave me the once over. We made eye contact and he smiled to reveal a full set of gold teeth. Excuse me,Ž he said as I walked in front of his car. Are you from the United States?Ž I gave him my most no-nonsense look. I am.Ž Oh, OK,Ž he said. Its just „ you remind me of a friend of mine. Shes from the Ukraine.Ž Well, Im from Florida.ŽHe grinned and there was that grill again. Ive seen Hustle & Flow,Ž the Oscar-winning film about a pimp in Memphis, and I had the sudden impression that this man was the real thing. Not a movie-star version, but an actual pimp. As I pressed on, it occurred to me what he had been saying. He thought I was a hooker. A real-live pimp mistook me for a Ukrainian prostitute. And thats when I realized Im no Southern belle.

Train, Wagon Rides & Ponies, Singing, Dancing & Live Music on TWO stages, Arts & Crafts Projects, Food, Face Painting, Parent & Child Music Classes, Sports Workshops, Child-Friendly Vendors.by The Borland Center for Performing Arts Sponsors in-kind: Entertainment: Two exhibitions, both focused on the Palm Beach area and featuring works by numerous local shutt erbugs, open on Nov. 20 and run through January 5 at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in downtown West Palm Beach. ALBUM 2012, Memories from Friends of the Palm Beach Photo-graphic Centre is an exhibition of incredible pictures taken by local pho-tographers. Q Jeff Blakely is an award-winning landscape ar chitect specializing in r esidential estates and specialty commer-cial projects. His work has been exhib-ited in the Annual (national juried) Exhibitions of Contemporary American Painting at the Society of the Four Arts, Palm Beach, The Hortt Memorial Exhibition(s), Fort Lauderdale Museum of the Arts, The Pensacola National Drawing Show, The Magic Silver Show (photography), National Small Painting Show in Detroit and the Palm Beach Photographic Centres InFocus Annual Juried Exhibition(s). Q Alexander W. Dreyfoos: The chairman and owner of The Dreyfoos Group, a private capital management firm, which grew out of his successful Photo Electronics Corp, Mr. Dreyfoos also is an Academy Award-winning inventor of digital imaging process equipment and a distinguished cultural philanthropist. His varied interests include yachting, flying, photography, scuba diving, ham radio, freshwater and deep-sea fishing and ocean sailboat racing. Q Bruce Gendelman: The founder & chairman of a national property and casualty insurance brokerage business and a licenses attorney, Mr. Gendelman is a resident of Palm Beach who has been taking photographs since he was 10 years old. The theme of his photos in this exhibition is Reflections on Berlin, and the pix were taken last month. I was moved and haunted by this city,Ž he says. People, nature, the physics of our world have been the constants in my efforts. In particular I seek natural patterns, reflections of light and hidden meanings.Ž Q Avram Glazer rediscovered photography about three years ago. Most of his photos were taken in New Orleans, New York City and the Palm Beach area. Q Jean Matthews is a photographer and artist whose work includes land-scapes, botanical and macro photogra-phy. A member of the Garden Club of Palm Beach, Ms. Matthews was recently appointed area vice chairman for pho-tography by the Garden Club of Ameri-ca. She is a frequent participant in GCA photographic competitions and has won numerous awards. Q Tommy Morrison studied photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology and briefly worked with legendary French fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier in New York City. Having established himself as a premier collector of classic 20th century and contemporary photography, Mr. Mor-rison is a serious photographer himself, known for his exquisite travel photos from Cuba and other exotic locations. The other exhibition is LUCIEN CAPEHART, Memories of Palm Beach Only six years after arriving in Palm Beach in 1973, social photographer Luc-ien Capehart opened his own studio and became a familiar fixture on the local society scene for nearly 40 years. As The Palm Beach Post noted after his death last February, During the social season in Palm Beach, the well-heeled clamored for Luciens attention at luncheons and diamond-studded galas, rewarded by his flattering images in the society pages. Hung in gilded frames at nearly every island address, his photographs have chronicled the good life for gen-erations.Ž This exhibition includes 28 works from the early 1970s to 2011. The opening reception for AlbumŽ and Lucien CapehartŽ is Nov. 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be a follow-up lecture by Mr. Dreyfoos at the Photo Centre on Jan. 2, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Photo Centre is at the downtown City Center municipal complex at 415 Clematis St. in downtown West Palm Beach.

Ms. McKinley expects the mural to be more than six feet long and says vis-itors should expect to see local artists offering demonstrations of their work. Its an opportunity for kids to get messy. That mural will be more than six feet of painting fun. Were bringing a drop cloth to make sure theyll not be hindered,Ž she says. That is part of what makes a festival like this so satisfying. I just love doing them because we get some fantastic artwork that was created onsite and is entirely improvi-sational,Ž Ms. McKinley says. The arts and crafts demonstrations are not all that will go on during the festival. There will be child-friendly vendors, as well as face painting and kid-friendly food. Look for there to be parent and child music classes; a petting zoo; photog-raphy lessons; a science show; sports workshops; theatrical performances; train, wagon and pony rides; plus gym-nastics. The first 300 people to attend will receive goody bags. Look for the Maltz Jupiter Theatres Youth Touring Company to be there. Theyll be doing The Best of Broadway „ Broadway hits,Ž says Julie Rowe, director of education at the Maltzs Paul and Sandra Goldner Con-servatory of Performing Arts. The Maltz company is known for generating talent. Broadway veteran and Maltz conservatory instructor Brian Andrews leads the troupe. This year, theyre really great. We have 34 kids and theyre just wonder-ful,Ž Ms. Rowe says. Were out work-ing every weekend, sometimes two or three shows a day.Ž The ArtCenter and the Maltz are only two of the organizations that will be represented at the festival. Look for representatives of the Armory Arts Center, Atlantic Arts Academy, Char Mar Dance, Egoscue Foundation, Florida School for Dance Education, Gym Like This!, Gymboree Play & Music, Hometown Bridges, JCC, Jupiter Academy of Music, Just Dance Inc., KWP Productions, Macaroni Kid, Mad Science, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Conservatory of Performing Arts, Palm Beach Photographic Centre, Professor Clark the Science Shark and the Roger Dean Stadium mascots. Food sponsors include Cantina Laredo, Chuck Burger Joint and Chipotle Mexican Grill. The event is sponsored by Emergency Care Services at JFK Medical Center, in conjunction with The Borland Center for Performing Arts. Midtown says it attracted more than 700 families last year and is hoping word of mouth from last years event will attract even more visitors to the mixed-use plaza. They are banking on that, in fact. Midtown is adding a second entertainment area to accommodate everyone. All the more room to be inspired, they say. But perhaps the Lighthouse ArtCenters Ms. McKinley, known for her work in ceramics, says it best: Its a great way to get turned on to art. I always get fired up and want to go home and do my own art.Ž Q >>What: Mainstreet at Midtown Children’s Festival>>When: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 18 >>Where: Mainstreet at Midtown, 4801 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens>>Cost: Free >>Info: midtownpga.com in the know Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts. Playing in Mr. Kentons orchestra was special, Mr. Noday says. It had a family feeling,Ž he says.Mr. Kenton was a man who looked out for his players. Mr. Noday tries to carry some of that feeling over to his own ensemble. Its hard to put into words the emotion that is conjured up by hearing the band play,Ž Mr. Noday says. One member of the band actually played with the Kenton orchestra in the early 60s. Thats Joel Kaye and hes coming down from Tampa, since he has that bass saxophone Ive been wanting him to play for a long time,Ž Mr. Noday says. Im very happy with this band. This band is filled up with fine musi-cians. They play by the seat of their pants, and theyre gung-ho for Kenton.Ž This will be the first time Mr. Noday has played at the 554-seat Maltz. The theater is an intimate space, where he has heard his friend Maynard Ferguson play. He hopes the space will help him convey some of what he feels the moment he sets that first downbeat. When I hear Artistry in Rhythm, the main theme, it becomes quite emo-tional for me,Ž he says. Just hearing the trombones. The trombones are the mainstay of the band. They play in a choral style, and its just magic. The trumpets are up in the stratosphere.Ž Then it moves to the reeds.When you hear the lead alto saxophone and the tenor saxophone and they play so romantically and sweetly, it becomes very emotional.Ž Thats the clincher.Something happens, and it does bring tears to your eyes.Ž Q >>What: Stan Kenton Tribute Orchestra led by Dennis Noday>>When: 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 >>Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

With performances Nov. 27 through Dec. 16, this classic American musical takes audiences on a toe-tapping adven-ture with fast-talking salesman Profes-sor Harold Hill, who convinces the townspeople of River City, Iowa, that they need a band, instruments and uni-forms. His plans to skip town with their money come to a crashing halt when he falls in love and has to face the music. This show is entertaining for everyone. The tunes are irresistible, the lyr-ics are funny and clever, and each song pulls the audience in,Ž said Andrew Kato, the theaters producing artistic director. The Music Man is a fun-filled tale of risk and redemption, and I think that audience members of all ages will delight in the storys sense of adventure and classic American sound.Ž With book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson (and based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey), The Music ManŽ features Til There Was You,Ž and Seventy-six Trombones,Ž and will star 30 multi-talented perform-ers. It will feature a full orchestra, more than 100 costumes and a versatile set. The Music Man offers some of the most thrilling and innovative scores ever written for musical theater, includ-ing stirring marches, gorgeous bar-bershop quartets, propulsive charac-ter songs, exuberant song-and-dance numbers, achingly beautiful ballads and soaring love songs,Ž said director Mark Martino. All of these songs are sup-ported by a book that is populated by an eccentric, funny and lovable group of River City citizens … and centered by a truly moving love story.Ž Mr. Martino, a director and choreographer who works at some of the nations best regional theaters, is well known locally for his work on the the-aters past productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,Ž the Carbonell Award-winning Crazy for You,Ž BeehiveŽ and the Carbonellnominated La Cage aux FollesŽ and The Boy Friend.Ž The musical became a Broadway hit in 1957, winning five Tony Awards and running for 1,375 performances. The cast album won a Grammy Award and was No. 1 on the Billboard charts for 245 weeks, and the shows success led to a popular 1962 film adaptation starring Robert Preston. The theaters version is unique because it is being choreographed by Carbonell-winning choreographer Shea Sullivan, who led the dance moves for Crazy for YouŽ at the theater. Since the majority of the musicals performers are triple threatsŽ „ mean-ing they can sing, dance and act „ Ms. Sullivan is adding more complex danc-ing than is usually seen in the produc-tion. The theater also is including nine local children among the shows profes-sional cast, cast through a series of First Step to Stardom auditions during the spring and fall. The Music ManŽ will star Carbonellwinning performer Matt Loehr as Pro-fessor Harold Hill. He made his debut at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre two seasons ago as the leading role in Crazy for You,Ž for which he received the Car-bonell award, and also starred as Cor-nelius Hackl last season in the theaters production of Hello, Dolly!Ž The role of Marian Paroo will be played by Mandy Bruno, who has starred on Broadway in Les MiserablesŽ and Patti Lupones Gypsy.Ž She also spent six years in the role of Marina Cooper on CBSs Guiding Light,Ž for which she earned a Daytime Emmy Award Nomi-nation. Bring the whole family and hop on the Wells Fargo Wagon to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre this holiday season for an enchanting evening thatll be as sweet and American as apple pie „ and as thrilling and exciting as Fourth of July fireworks!Ž Mr. Martino said. The Music ManŽ is sponsored by Peggy and Rick Katz.

YesSlowly but surely, hes once again becoming the Bond, James Bond, we grew up with and dearly missed. Though the last film in the franchise, Quantum Of SolaceŽ (2008), was a dis-appointment, Bond is back on solid ground in Sky-fall,Ž a top-notch action pic that reminds us how much fun a Bond movie can be. That said, its not perfect „ at 143 minutes, its eas-ily 20 minutes too long, and its a mistake to wait 70 minutes before we get Javier Bardems deliciously nasty villain. Still, much of SkyfallŽ works because the story is smart and tense. After Bond (Daniel Craig) and fellow secret agent Eve (Naomie Har-ris) fail to retrieve a list of undercover agents from an assassin named Patrice (Ola Rapace), the new head of British intelligence, Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), asks M (Judi Dench) to retire. Then theres a lull for a half hour as Bond trains to be reinstated, after which M sends him to Shanghai, where he eyes hottie Bond girl Severine (Ber-enice Marlohe). Bond follows Severine to Macau, where she leads him to Silva (Bardem), a cyberterrorist who has a long history with M. All of this takes far too long to happen, but the wait is worth it, as the second half of director Sam Mendes (American BeautyŽ) film has very few flaws. And why wouldnt you get to Bardem sooner? Hes one of the finest actors working today, and the last time he played a villain (No Country for Old MenŽ), he won an Oscar. Here he plays one of the juiciest Bond villains in recent memory; note the creepy sounds he makes, and how he gazes into Craigs eyes during their first scene together. There are homoerotic overtones, and its not a mistake. Mendes, heretofore a director of dramas, handles the action well enough, and he benefits from a smart script thats full of Bond-isms loyal franchise fans will appreciate. We also get the return of Q (Ben Whishaw) and other characters and traditions weve been waiting for since the franchise restarted with Casino RoyaleŽ in 2006. If youre one of those people who complains about the ridiculousness of Bond movies, go away. This isnt real life, and its not trying to be. So during the opening sequence when the bad guy, atop a train, shoots at Bond while Bond sits inside a train-bound excavator, we shouldnt be surprised when the bad guy decides to turn and run just as Bond exposes himself for an open shot. Thats what happens in these movies, and its what makes them fun. Ive said it before and Ill say it again: The appeal of Bond is that hes pure male fantasy „ women want him and men want to be him. Especially when he has the radiant blue eyes and the hand-someness of Daniel Craig. When I interviewed Craig four years ago as QuantumŽ was released, he said he was excited about the future of the series because theyd earned the right to bring back the things Bond fans know and love. With Skyfall,Ž they have suc-ceeded. Q LATEST FILMS‘Skyfall’ r c w w c B dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Though he had no right to do so Daniel Craig offered Sam Mendes the directing job while at a party in New York City. It’s a good thing the producers agreed Mendes was a good t. Flight ++++ (Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly) After saving nearly 100 passengers from certain death in a plane crash, pilot Whip Whitaker (Washing-ton) comes under scrutiny for drinking and doing drugs prior to the flight. This is a great character study of an alcoholic and how he copes with intense pressure that will define the rest of his life. Wash-ingtons performance is fantastic, and director Robert Zemeckis storytelling is even better. Rated R. Wreck-It Ralph ++ (Voices of John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman) Ralph (Reilly), the villain in an 80s video game, causes havoc in that world when he attempts to be a hero.

A PROUD TRADITION.A NEW EXPRESSION. CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER Heads I win, tails you loseIt goes without saying that a declarer should avoid making plays that can lose but never gain. Converse-ly, declarer should always be on the lookout for plays that can gain but cannot lose. This principle is surely not debatable, but its application in a given situation is not always easy to spot. Consider this deal where South was in four hearts. West led the K-A of clubs and continued with the jack. Declarer ruffed and led a trump to the ace, discovering to his horror that West had all five missing trumps. South did the best he could by abandoning further trump leads and play-ing diamonds instead. But West ruffed the second diamond and returned a trump, and South later lost a spade trick to go down one. It is true that when five cards of a suit are missing, they will divide 5-0 only 4 percent of the time. So to that extent, South was unlucky. Neverthe-less, the fact remains that he made an error in the play, and the gods saw fit to punish him for it. Had South been a member of the school that always asks at the start of play What can defeat me?Ž he might have found the way to safeguard his contract. He would have realized, when West continued clubs at trick three, that only a 5-0 trump break could defeat him. Then, in order to protect against this possibility, he would have discarded his seven of spades on the jack of clubs in order to maintain control of the trumps. Discarding a spade on the club jack could not cost South a trick, but offered him a chance to gain one. It was there-fore the correct play, although not an easy one to think of. Q

In the early 19th century, the turkey was a wild one, probably killed by a member of the community. If a time machine could bring someone from that era to our Thanksgiving dinner today, there would be very little inside or outside the house that has not changed. Food, communication, transportation, their contents and even toys might now be too complicated and look unfamil-iar. Even dolls have been modernized.Ž Dolls today walk, talk, dance, answer questions, have washable hair and realis-tic skin,Ž and seem almost alive thanks to batteries or electronics. But some-times our ancestors created amazing dolls with limited tools but clever ideas. A doll made in the 19th century could also walk, but by a very unusual method. The dolls body was carved of wood with moveable jointed arms and a swivel head mounted on a dowel. Eight legs with feet wearing shoes were arranged like spokes on a wheel. The fashionable doll dress of the day was long enough to cover most of the dolls legs. Only two of the feet would show as a child walkedŽ the doll across the floor by making the wheel of legs turn. A rare doll like this sells for thousands of dollars today. There are very few still to be found. Q: I have a set of four modern fully upholstered tulip chairs that are about 25 years old. I would like your help in establishing their value and maker. The only mark other than some numbers is a Made in FranceŽ label. A: The famous tulip chairŽ was designed in 195556 by Eero Saarinen, a Finnish-American designer and architect. The chair has been in production ever since it was introduced, and its only licensed manu-facturer has been Knoll Inc., now based in East Greenville, Pa. Knock-offs have been made all over the world, though, and your chairs are probably among those unauthorized copies. They would not sell for as much as Knolls authentic tulip chairs. Q: My family has owned an interesting tape measure for at least 75 years, since when I was a child. Its a porcelain mans head with a little porcelain fly on his forehead. The mans face is bright white. One of his eyes is closed and the other one is open and blue. His cheeks are painted light pink, his lips are red and the fly is black with red eyes. Pull-ing on the fly extends the narrow cloth tape measure from the mans head. The head is 2 inches tall. Can you tell me anything about it? A: Spring-return tape measures were introduced in about 1875, and figural measures in all kinds of shapes and materials have been made ever since. The tape was fab-ric on early mod-els and metal on later ones. Most figural measures like yours date from the late 1800s into the 1930s. They are popu-lar collectibles, especially among people who hunt for antique and vintage sewing implements. Your measure could sell for more than $50. Q: Im trying to find out the value of my early-1900s Piedmont cedar chest. A: The Piedmont Red Cedar Chest Co. was located in States-ville, N.C. The company sold its cedar chests through catalogs, not in stores. The chests were made of solid red cedar from North Carolina and Tennessee. The company was in busi-ness until at least the late-1920s. Cedar chests are not very decorative but they are useful. If in good condition, they sell for about the same price as new cedar chests: $200 to $300. Q: My great-great-grandmothers two pieces of pressed glass now belong to me. One is a cover ed butt er dish and the other an open sugar bowl. I know the pattern is Bulls-Eye and Daisy, and the bulls-eyes are ruby-stained. Can you tell me who made it? Im looking for the cream pitcher to match. How can I find it? A: Bulls-Eye and Daisy was made in 1909-10 at the U.S. Glass Co.s factory in Glassport, Pa. The pattern originally was called NewportŽ and also is some-times called Bulls-Eye and Daisies.Ž It was made not only in clear glass with ruby-stained bulls-eyes, like yours, but also in clear glass and clear with green or amethyst bulls-eyes. Some pieces were also trimmed in gold. To find a matching creamer, shop online or con-tact a matching service like Replace-ments.com. The creamer with ruby stain should cost you about $4 5. Your butt er is valued at $100, and your sugar at $70. Tip: Be sure to rinse fabrics until all soap residue is gone. Soap in the textile will scorch when you iron.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 VINO Time for a toast to the many reasons we give thanksThis is the time of year when people traditionally count their blessings and give thanks for those things that bring joy into their lives: spending time with family and other loved ones, the oppor-tunities we have in life, that weve once again emerged unscathed from hurri-cane season and „ in my case at least „that I can live in our home surrounded (literally) by our pets. My list of things to be grateful for also includes, not surprisingly, some awfully good wines Ive been fortunate enough to enjoy. These are pretty much my go-toŽ wines when I want maximum enjoy-ment balanced by a reasonable price. Now you can enjoy them, too.Some of my favorites:Q Argyle Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2011 ($25): This lighter styled pinot opens with cherry and watermel-on aromas and flavors with a hint of cit-rus spice at the finish. Medium in color and lighter in body, this wine can be enjoyed with a meal or simply by itself. Serve chilled, but not as cold as a white wine for the best flavor experience. Q Bodegas Alto Moncayo Moncayo 2009 ($45): Inky purple in color, this rich grenache from Spain, produced from older vines, is full-bodied and richly extracted. Mid-priced of three grenache offerings from Bodegas Alto Moncayo, it opens with floral notes mixed with black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, layered in intensity. Long and supple, it finishes long and balanced with a touch of spice. Q Chateau dEsclans Ros Whispering Angel 2011 ($20): I keep coming back to this wine when I look for a ros. Made in the Cotes de Provence in southern France by Sacha Lich-ine, son of the late, noted author and winemaker Alexis Lichine, he left his family business in Bor-deaux (Chateau Prieur-Lichine in Margaux) to make an exquisite line of ross. Whispering Angel is the entry-level offering, a blend of grenache and other Rhone grape variet-ies. Pale pink or salmon in color with fresh clean fruit aromas and flavors of strawberry, this dry wine has good texture and lay-ers of flavor leading to a medium finish. It wont stay long in your glass! Q Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlbor-ough 2011 ($25): This wine exemplifies for me what a very good sauvignon blanc from New Zea-land should be. Light and racy in aroma and on the palate, its full of complex flavors of white peach, citrus and melon with a lingering crisp finish. Q Paco and Lola Albarino 2010 ($20): The color of light straw, this wine has clean, bright, intense aromas and flavors of pear and green apple with a citrus tinge. On the palate some tropical fruit flavors of mango and pine-apple emerge, leading to the silky long finish. I have come to appreciate alba-rino from the Rias Baixas district of Spain because it is so refreshing and thirst quenching, and this is one of the best. The wine is perfect with seafood. It comes from a district along the coast in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, due north of Portugal. Q Rombauer Chardonnay Carneros 2010 ($35): When I want to drink an impressive yet not-too-expensive char-donnay, I reach for this one from the Carneros district in California. Very consis-tent in quality and flavor from vintage to vintage, it has a lovely golden straw color and is medium in body. Fragrant aromas of peach, white flowers and citrus merge into the pal-ate along with melon and pear flavors. Well-balanced acidity and a touch of oak bring some vanilla to the lingering buttery finish. Q Seghesio Sonoma County Zinfandel 2010 ($20): This winery was established in 1895 and makes several zinfandels (their top-selling varietal) as well as a smattering of other varieties. I like this wine because its smooth, well-balanced and has the typical zinfandel bouquet and flavor profile: full-bodied, dry and fragrant with black cherry and strawberry notes in the aroma as well as the palate, finished in oak with a touch of pepper and spice on the lasting finish. This one is a great value, too. Q Two Hands Angels Share Shiraz 2010 ($40): This Australian winery offers several quality levels of wine, mostly shiraz-based. Flagship, single vineyard and garden series labels are all well made and perfectly enjoyable. I like the Angels Share from the Pic-ture Series because of the value/quality ratio. Another richly extracted, deeply colored and fragrant wine with a big bouquet of plums, cherries and black-berries, leading to the polished round palate and a long spicy finish. The angels shareŽ refers to the evaporation from the barrel during maturation of the wine. Some winemakers and wine lov-ers say this is the price exacted by the angels for watching over the wine and ensuring its quality.
