A21, 22 X You could say Evelyn & Arthur was born of a need. When Evelyn Lewis retired to Florida, she discovered she simply didnt have a thing to wear. Fortunately for Mrs. Lewis, her husband, Arthur, had been in the garment business in New York. The result was a chain of eight boutiques and an annex that has lasted nearly 28 years and that has become synonymous with colorful resort fashion for women of a cer-tain age. Mrs. Lewis died about a decade ago, and Mr. Lewis finally stepped back from the business four years ago. He lives in Boca Raton. But the company remains a family affair, thanks to their daughter, Adri-anne Weissman, now president of the company. Mrs. Weissmans hus-band, Fred, is the companys CFO. It is a job in which she clearly finds delight. During a recent visit to her Palm Beach Gardens store, Mrs. Weissman bustled arranging trays of merchan-dise, greeting customers and joking with her employees, many of whom are friends. Im 100 percent hands-on in all aspects of the business,Ž she says.

IN THE HEART OF OUR COMMUNITY SETTING THE IN A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY So were going to place American women in combat positions, on purpose. Great. Maybe Ill move out of the country in protest. I could head to Canada, for example, where putting women in combat positions makes a lot more sense. There, half the women are related to polar bears anyway, and they like to stay cold and fight. The other half speak French, and they like to stay warm and make love. Making l ove, making war „ the whimsical Canadians just do what they want. Appar-ently they harbor no silly illusions about equality in any of it. But many Americans blithely assume that everybodys equal, and everybody, therefore, should have both equal rights and equal responsibilities „ Southerners, Northerners, men, women, polar bears, French speakers, them and us. Let me point out that men and women may enjoy equal rights, but they have to ride herd on very different biologies. That means women hold a card many men would have given their eyeteeth to play during the Vietnam draft, for example „ the pregnancy card. Its an ace up the sleeve, and thats not fair.What will happen if we take on another unpopular war someday, and women get drafted in the same numbers as men, then placed in combat roles? Heres one possibility: A woman who wants out of such a bum steer will no lon-ger have to exile herself to Canada when the draft board scoffs at her conscientious-objector application. Instead, shell just get pregnant. So if were going to place women in combat roles, I think Army medical doctors should now be ordered to come up with a way for men to get pregnant, too „ if they can qualify. (I personally dont know of any men tough enough to qualify, but there must be somebody, somewhere.) Either that, or every man in uniform should be given an official, one-use-only Chromosome Y Preggie CardŽ „ a CYPC, for those who are acronymically inclined „ to be put into play for a period of nine months only, at any moment of his choosing. Meanwhile, its progress, not naivete, that characterizes Canadians. They first allowed women to assume combat roles way back in 1989, following a precedent established by Israel, Norway and Denmark. They were trying to become a fully integrated, equal society „ you know, with equally good health care for all, equal pay and opportunities for all, equally respon-sible corporate bankers who didnt play loose with ethics or laws for all, and all that other equally progressive mish-mash. Nowadays, most women who serve under arms „ about 15 percent of Canadian troops „ do not have combat roles. Two percent, however, come equipped not only with the dominant X chromosome, but with packs and rifles. They serve in com-bat units right alongside the men, according to an online report that appeared early this week in National Geographic Daily News.Ž One, a forward observer trained to call in artillery or air strikes, even got killed in Afghanistan, in 2006. Thats fine for the Canadians, who have always come to our aid in any fight. In all likelihood, theyre so cold most of the time they probably cant think clearly. But for Americans theres a question we should long since have asked. And it isnt, What have we come to when we let women go into combat?Ž No, the bigger question is this: What have we come to when we let anybody at all go into combat „ 17-year-olds, for example? Or 18-year-olds, or 19-year-olds, or 20-year-olds?Ž Not one of them, remember, can legally enter a restaurant on American soil and order even a single glass of beer or wine. We were happy to send them to Korea or Vietnam or Iraq, of course „ three of the most misguided adventures in American history. And many came back in flag-draped boxes. Apparently that hardly fazed us, because we kept doing it. More troubling to us, instead, is the danger they face in such spiritual warzones as Mels Diner, or Hooters, or Sweet Melissas Cafe, or the Yabba Island Grill, or Seasons 52 or Opus. There, theyre legally banished from spirits altogether. Instead, they can order a nice glass of milk with their apple pie. In the end, maybe its not just our willingness to send young people „ now including women „ so cavalierly into combat. Maybe its our arbitrary and patchy insistence on equal rights and faux-morality that makes me want to break out in song. This song, in particular: Oh Canada, Terre de nos aieux,/ Ton front es ceint de fleurons glorieuxƒŽ If you dont instantly recognize those inspiring lyrics, clearly youre an American. If you decide to move to Canada with me, therefore, I advise you to learn them imme-diately or risk being kicked out of the finest wine bars and pastry shops in Montreal, which is where Ill be hanging out. Theyre the first words of the Canadian national anthem, of course „ everybody knows that, especially hockey fans. They go like this, in English: O Canada,/Our home and native land/ True patriot love in all our sons, command.Ž Yeah, I know, ƒ in all our sons, command.ŽTheir daughters, apparently, are not commanded by Canada, its anthem, or anything else, especially not by the men, unless they want to be. They get to volunteer. And if they do volunteer, they also have to qualify. American women will now have the same opportunityŽ to qualify for combat roles. For all 314 million of us in the land of the free and the home of the brave, thats sad „ sad that so narrow a view of equality has been championed with such fanfare south of the Canadian border. This new opportunity for women, dubious at best for any who might someday find themselves in combat, is only a single thread in the whole fabric of an equal society. In our stalwart democracy, it should be part of an Equal Rights Amendment that insists on equal opportunity in every corner of American life „ and also insists on equal responsibility. Then, all those progressive foreigners will no longer have the leg up on us, when it comes to progress. Q COMMENTARYThe Chromosome Y Preggie Card w g t o p c roger

President Barack Obama gave a second inaugural address that just as easily could have been delivered by pro-gressive darling Elizabeth Warren. If the president didnt repeat the phrase that Republicans threw back at him so often during the 2012 campaign „ you didnt build thatŽ „ the speech was a meditation on the same theme of the limits of individual action. The address was a paean to collectivism, swaddled in the rhetoric of individual liberty and of fidelity to the founding. He began and ended with the Founding Fathers and threaded the Declara-tion of Independence throughout. This gave the speech a conservative sheen. He used the words timeless,Ž ancient,Ž lastingŽ and enduring.Ž He sounded like Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in invoking what makes us exceptional,Ž namely our allegiance to an idea, artic-ulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago.Ž But this framing of the speech only served to amplify the ambition of Presi-dent Obamas larger political project. He hopes to reorient the American mainstream and locate conservatives outside it. He wants to take the founders from the right and baptize the unrecon-structed entitlement state and the pro-gressive agenda in the American creed. In Obamas telling, the high points of our national life are found in collective action, in the growth of government, in teachers trained and roads built. Now, more than ever,Ž he declared, we must do these things together, as one nation and one people.Ž He presented his agenda as the logical consequence of the Declaration of Independences enunciation of the equality of all men and our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For Obama, that means equal-pay legisla-tion, gay marriage and amnesty for ille-gal immigrants. He included a long pas-sage on the necessity of fighting climate change with transformative energy poli-cies. Thats what will lend meaning,Ž he said, to the creed our fathers once declared.Ž (One wonders what Thomas Jefferson would have made of the argu-ment that his handiwork is meaningless absent federal subsidies for the likes of Solyndra.) According to President Obama, entitlements like Medicare and Social Secu-rity dont merely represent a necessary safety net for the vulnerable. They free us to take the risks that make this coun-try great,Ž he maintained, in a highly imaginative interpretation of these pro-grams. All of his bows to modesty were formalistic. He mentioned outworn programs,Ž without even promising to eliminate any. He said we have always had a suspicion of central authority, but of course he didnt endorse it. He said we dont have to settle the debate over the size of government once and for all, while insisting that we keep expanding it on his own terms. All in all, it was a brazen performance, as audacious in intent as it was banal in its expression. He used the founders authority to advance an expansive conception of American gov-ernment that would have been unrecog-nizable to them. Amid the pomp and the circumstances, Republicans should have heard a direct challenge. The president did them, and everyone else, the favor of enunciating the battle lines and the stakes of the fights to come. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Obama’s dirty wars exposed at SundanceAs President Barack Obama prepared to be sworn in for his second term as the 44th president of the United States, two courageous journalists premiered a documentary at the annual Sundance Film Festival. Dirty Wars: The World Is a BattlefieldŽ reaffirms the critical role played by independent journalists like the films director, Rick Rowley, and its narrator and central figure, Jeremy Sca-hill. The increasing pace of U.S. drone strikes, and the Obama administrations reliance on shadowy special forces to conduct military raids beyond the reach of oversight and accountability, were summarily missed over the inaugural weekend by a U.S. press corps obsessed with first lady Michelle Obamas new bangs. Dirty Wars,Ž along with Scahills forthcoming book of the same title, is on target to break that silence ... with a bang that matters. Scahill and Rowley, no strangers to war zones, ventured beyond Kabul, Afghanistan, south to Gardez, in Paktia province, a region dense with armed Taliban and their allies in the Haqqani network, to investigate one of the thou-sands of night raids that typically go unreported. Scahill told me: In Gardez, U.S. special operations forces had intelligence that a Taliban cell was having some sort of a meeting to prepare a suicide bomb-er. And they raid the house in the mid-dle of the night, and they end up killing five people, including three women, two of whom were pregnant, and ... Moham-med Daoud, a senior Afghan police commander who had been trained by the U.S.Ž Scahill and Rowley went to the heart of the story, to hear from people who live at the target end of U.S. foreign policy. In Gardez, they interviewed sur-vivors of that violent raid on the night of Feb. 12, 2010. After watching his brother and his wife, his sister and his niece killed by U.S. special forces, Mohammed Sabir was handcuffed on the ground. He watched, helpless, as the U.S. soldiers dug the bullets out of his wifes corpse with a knife. He and the other surviving men were then flown off by helicopter to another province. Sabir recounted his ordeal for Rowleys camera: My hands and clothes were caked with blood. They didnt give us water to wash the blood away. The American interrogators had beards and didnt wear uniforms. They had big muscles and would fly into sudden rages. By the time I got home, all our dead had already been buried. Only my father and my brother were left at home. I didnt want to live anymore. I want-ed to wear a suicide jacket and blow myself up among the Americans. But my brother and my father wouldnt let me. I wanted a jihad against the Americans.Ž Before leaving, Scahill and Rowley made copies of videos from the cell-phones of survivors. One demonstrated that it was not a Taliban meeting, but a lively celebration of the birth of a child that the raid interrupted. Row-ley described another video: You can hear voices come over it, and theyre American-accented voices speaking about piecing together their version of the nights killings, getting their story straight. You hear them trying to con-coct a story about how this was some-thing other than a massacre.Ž The film shows an image captured in Gardez, by photographer Jeremy Kelly, sometime after the massacre. It showed a U.S. admiral named McRaven, sur-rounded by Afghan soldiers, offering a sheep as a traditional gesture seeking forgiveness for the massacre. The cover-up had failed. William McRaven headed the Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC. Following the thread of JSOC, painstak-ingly probing scarcely reported night raids, traveling from Afghanistan to Yemen to Somalia, Scahills reporting, along with Rowleys incredible cam-erawork, constructs for the first time a true, comprehensive picture of JSOC and Commander in Chief Obamas not-so-brave new world. The Inauguration Day drone strike in Yemen was the fourth in as many days, along with a similar increase in strikes in Pakistan. The Washington Post reported that Obama has a playbookŽ that details when drone strikes are authorized, but it reportedly exempts those conducted by the CIA in Afghanistan and Pakistan. On Inauguration Day, Obama officially nominated John Brennan, a strong advo-cate for the enhanced interrogation techniquesŽ that many call torture, and architect of the drone program, to head the CIA. With the film Dirty Wars,Ž co-written with David Riker and directed by Rowley, Jeremy Scahill is pulling back the curtain on JSOC, which has lately exploded into the public eye with the torture-endorsing movie Zero Dark Thirty,Ž about the killing of Osama bin Laden. When Dirty WarsŽ comes to a theater near you, see it. Sadly, it proves the theater of war is everywhere, or, as its subtitle puts it: The World Is a Battlefield.Ž As Scahill told me, Youre going to see a very different reality, and youre going to see the hellscape that has been built by a decade of covert war.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.

MARTY BECKER Universal UclickEvery year, I go to as many veterinary conferences as I can. I have always loved to learn and I need to stay on the cutting edge for my work in the media. Last year, several veterinary products caught my attention. Theyll be worth watching as they roll into veterinary prac-tices this year. In random order: € Zeuterin: A few years ago, I made the decision to return to practice. I missed it, so now I see pets and their people at two north Idaho veterinary hospi-tals whenever I can. Recently, I was able to participate in the staff training for a product that will revolutionize the way we neuter dogs. Zeuterin is a U.S. Food and Drug Admin-istration-approved non-surgical product injected directly into the testicles. Its fast, its easy on everyone and it has already proven its value in neutering overpopulations of dogs in third-world countries and in the abandoned area around the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. ( € Kerdog by SophiaDog: I first saw this product last summer at the American Veterinary Medical Associa-tions annual conference. It had quite the buzz on the trade-show floor, and with good reason. Its a wheeled cart for dogs that does more than support an animal undergoing rehabilitation. The product has pedals for the rear paws that teach the animal to use his legs while strength-ening the muscles. Eventually, the pedals are removed and the dog walks with sup-port from the cart, and then on his own. ( € OraStrip Quick Check: Your veterinarian can tell in minutes if your dog has periodontal disease with OraStrip Quick Check, a diagnostic strip that tests a pets saliva and color when active disease is present. Treatment options can then be explored in time to reduce the suffering caused by this painful and harmful con-dition. (€ IDEXX VetConnect Plus: I love my tablet computer, and I love see-ing all the ways were starting to use these in veterinary medicine. With this system from IDEXX, my patients laboratory reports show an easy-to-read interac-tive format and can be viewed on a desktop, laptop or tablet. Theyre all in one place, and I can use my tablet to go over the Cloud-based results with the pets owner. The company says more than 3,000 veterinary prac-tices in the United States are already using the system since it was launched last July. (€ Royal Canin Veterinary Diets CALM: With proven links between illness and behavior prob-lems to the increased levels of stress caused by anxiety, theres a need for food to soothe anxious pets. New from Royal Canin Veterinary Diets is CALM, the first product of its kind, available through veterinarians. CALM includes three proven ingredients to relieve stress and anxiety without the use of medica-tion. ( These are the five products that really caught my attention last year, but I easily could have listed a couple dozen more. Changes and innovations are a constant in medicine, which is yet another reason to work with your veterinarian to stay on top of pet care breakthroughs. Your pet will benefit, and so will you. Q A handful of new products for veterinary use aim to improve lives for pets and their people. PET TALESPick of the litterFive veterinary products to watch in the new year >> Rambo is a 7-yearold neutered Presa Canario. His breed originated in Spain’s Canary Islands. His paws look like a cat’s foot, and he moves like a cat too, because his body is longer than it is tall. He needs an experienced owner; he has a strong personal-ity and character. He needs a long walk each day. >> Daisy is a 2-year-old spayed domestic. She is very vocal, and loves to be snuggled.

MICHAEL PAPA Chiropractor/Clinic Director FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 A7 Pushing the personhood envelopeCalifornia activist Jonathan Frieman finally got his day in court in January, but a Marin County judge quickly rejected his argument that he is entitled to use the states carpool lanes accompanied only by a sheath of corporate papers in the passenger seat. (During the 2012 Repub-lican primaries, Mitt Romney famously asserted a corporations general right under the law to be treated as a per-son.Ž) The judge decided that the state legislatures carpool law was intended only to reduce traf fic clutt er and that driving with no passenger except corpo-rate papers was unrelated to that goal. Mr. Frieman told reporters that he had been carrying the papers around for years, hoping to be challenged.Cultural diversityQ The U.S. Congress may suffer dismal popularity ratings (less savory than head lice, according to one survey), but it is saintly compared to Indias legisla-tures, which contain six accused rapists at the state level and two in the national parliament. Thirty-six local officials, as well, have been charged with sexual assault (according to Indias Association for Democratic Reforms). In fact, the association reported in December that 162 of the lower house of Parliaments 552 members currently face criminal charges. The problem is compounded by Indias notoriously paralyzed justice system, which practically ensures that the charges will be unresolved for years, if not decades. Q Many Japanese men seem to reject smartphones in favor of a low-tech 2002 Fujitsu cellphone, according to a January Wall Street Journal dispatch „ because it can help philanderers keep their affairs from lovers prying eyes. The phones lack sophisticated tracking fea-tures „ plus, a buried privacyŽ mode gives off only stealth signals when lovers call and leaves no trace of calls, texts or e-mails. A senior executive for Fujitsu said, If Tiger Woods had (this phone), he wouldnt have gotten in trouble.Ž Q Chinas national legislature passed a law in December to establish that people have a duty to visit their aged parents periodically. Chinas rapid urbanization has not developed nursing homes and similar facilities to keep pace with the population, and sponsors of the law said it would give the parents a legal right to sue their children for ignoring them.Latest religious messagesQ Redemption! Senior pastor Claude Gilliland III was forced to admit to his flock at the New Heart church in Cle-burne, Texas, in January that he is a con-victed sex offender and that he and his ex-wife had worked in the pornography industry. Rev. Gilliland, 54, served four years in prison in the 1990s for sexually assaulting his ex-wife, but in January was nonetheless defended by his congregation. If we believe in the redemptive work of Christ,Ž said one parishioner, then this man is a miracle.Ž (Rev. Gilliland believes he needs no redemption for the assault, for he was innocent of that „ but that he had done other bad things during that time that did require redemption.)Q ProphetŽ Cindy Jacobs said in a January Internet broadcast that God has revealed Himself to her by mysteriously removing critical shortages in her life, such as her cars well-worn tires that just kept rolling. I remember one time that I had a pair of shoes that I wore and wore and wore and wore and wore and it just „ for years, these shoes did not wear out.Ž Q Dublin, Ireland, inventor David Bonney recently decided to change the mar-keting of his new shoes to Atheist Shoes.Ž Two years earlier, he had started the busi-ness with the idea of selling ChristianŽ shoes that contained water in the soles so that wearers could walk on water.Questionable judgmentsQ Four days after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in New-town, Conn., officials at Public School 79 in New York City decided it would be a good time for a full-blown lock-down drill „ with no advance warning. Though P.S. 79 is a high school and not an elementary school, it is composed of about 300 students with special needs (autism, cerebral palsy, severe emotion-al disorders) who, with their teachers, were startled to hear the early-morning loudspeaker blaring, Shooter (or, pos-sibly, intruderŽ), get out, get out, lock-down.Ž One adult said it took her about five minutes to realize that it was only a drill. Still, said another, It was probably the worst feeling I ever had in my life.Ž Q Neighborhood observers reported in December that the asbestos-removal crewŽ working at the former YWCA in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, consisted merely of volunteer teenagers who are students at the local religious Buck-eye Education School. State regulations require that asbestos (known to cause deadly respiratory illnesses) be han-dled only by certified contractors using hazardous-materials gear. Buckeye and other officials, while emphasizing that the students were volunteers, declined to say who authorized them to work.Q In November, Tokyos Kenichi Ito, 29, bested his own Guinness World Record by a full second (down to 17.47 seconds) in the 100-meter dash „ on all fours. Mr. Ito runs like a Patas monkey, which he has long admired, and which (along with his self-described monkey-like face) inspired him nine years ago to take up four-leggedŽ running. He reported trou-ble only once, when he went to the moun-tains to train and was shot at by a hunter who mistook him for a wild boar.Fetishists on paradeWilliam Michael Martin, 45, was charged in January with burglary of the East Texas Medical Center in Lufkin, Texas, where he went apparently in search of womens underwear and employees personal photos, which police said he used as masturbation aids. At his home, police discovered a cache of womens underwear and several beach balls, which officers learned from photos were so that Martin could put them under his clothing and pose as pregnant. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE


A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIt means everything to us,Ž Mr. Witkowski said. We wait all year for spring training to roll around. Its our most important event here.Ž Mr. Witkowski describes his place as a foul ball awayŽ from the ballpark in Abacoa. While the fans and managers and coaches wonder about where their teams will finish in the standings and fans hope favorite players will post high batting averages or low earned run averages, other statistics are more note-worthy in the business world. Here is one: A 2006 study commissioned by the Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council, the most recent local one available, estimated the economic impact of spring training on Palm Beach County at $53 million. That was up 45 percent from the previ-ous study in 1993, when the impact was pegged at $36.5 million. And heres another statistic that has nothing to do with wins and losses: $752.3 million. Thats how much spring training was worth to the state of Florida, according to a 2009 report commissioned by the Florida Sports Foundation. The Cardinals and Marlins are more than well-paid young men who swing wood bats and throw balls. They pro-vide, according to these reports, a sig-nificant boost to the local economy. Tremendous asset,Ž said George Linley, executive director of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. Mr. Witkowski sees the impact in JJ Muggs. On the January day he spoke with Florida Weekly, he had one server and one bartender working. During spring training, that goes up to about 12 servers and four bartenders. Now, on a typical day, Mr. Witkowski said, his place will serve 50 to 100 lunches a day. During spring training, that number rockets to about 500. One of the assets, he believes, is having the Cardinals train a foul ball away from JJ Muggs. The Cardinals mean Cardinals fans. Theyre legion,Ž Mr. Witkowski said. Considered the best fans in the world.Ž Many flock to Palm Beach County every February and March, leaving behind cold weather in Missouri and Illinois and Indiana. They come wear-ing red T-shirts and Cardinal jerseys as emblems of their support for the team fans affectionately call the Redbirds. Our patio becomes a sea of red during spring training,Ž Mr. Witkowski said. Jeff Castner, general manager of the Jupiter Beach Resort, also sees red in February and March. A sea of red coming through,Ž said Mr. Castner, who certainly didnt mean red ink. While Marlins fans are either a short drive away or reside right here in Palm Beach County, Cardinal fans must trav-el a long way to see their team. Many need a hotel. And can afford it. The 2009 state study found that 35.3 percent of fans attending spring train-ing games made between $50,000 and $79,999 and 37.3 percent made $80,000 or more. Put another way, nearly 75 percent (72.6 percent actually) of fans made more than $50,000 four years ago. Jupiter Beach Resort executives know about their guests and potential guests and their income. They offer spring training packages that include curbside escort at the ballpark, tours of the clubhouse and entire complex and a chance to watch batting practice on the field. Vicki Greist knows about spring training and the fans and their spend-ing. She owns Jumby Bay Island Grill in Jupiter. Its what really carries us through the rest of the year,Ž Ms. Greist said. The Cardinal fans are more than anonymous folks wearing red from places in the Midwest to Ms. Greist and her staff. Many make spring training an annual ritual. We know them by name and what they drink and what they eat,Ž Ms. Gre-ist said. Like Mr. Witkowski at JJ Muggs, spring training means adding staff. She wasnt able to provide figures on staff-ing and revenue but said the March boom is like having a 13th month.Ž That lucky and profitable 13th month is nearly here.Getting ReadyMike Bauer is both a Marlin and a Cardinal. Well, not in the sense that he plays for either team. Or both. Hes the general manager of Roger Dean Stadi-um, the only baseball facility in Florida that is home to two Major League Base-ball teams for spring training. I have two bosses,Ž Mr. Bauer said, sitting at a round table in his stadium office. Ive had to learn and my staff has had to learn to be important to each of the teams.Ž Roger Dean Stadium is unlike any other facility in Florida. It has a game virtually every day during the Grape-fruit League, the informal spring train-ing games that are played every year.BASEBALLFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe St. Louis Cardinals averaged 6,604 fans per game at Roger Dean Stadium last season.Roger Dean Stadium has a game virtually every day during Spring Training.JOHN SESSA/FLORIDA WEEKLYGeneral Manager Mike Bauer oversees the operations of Roger Dean Stadium.Seats at Roger Dean Stadium will remain empty until that first game, Feb. 23.


The facility also has 12 practice fields and two separate buildings, one for each team, with locker rooms and offices and weight rooms. Now, just before the players begin reporting to camp, Mr. Bauer and dozens of employees are making sure everything is just right for players and fans. This is our crunch time,Ž Mr. Bauer said. It will get only busier once the teams start working out and even busier once the games begin. Now, in the final cou-ple of weeks before the teams arrive, Mr. Bauers staff works six days a week. Then, it gets real busy for the 40 or so full-time employees. Well end up putting in like 40 days in a row, 45 days in a row but we have to be here,Ž Mr. Bauer said. Were here for the teams. ƒ We take care of every need that they may have but were here because we love our jobs.Ž Mr. Bauer said the stadium hires 150 to 175 additional people to help during spring training. That doesnt include, he said, about 50 concessions people brought in by an outside vendor. The facility will be humming. The 6,871-seat stadium will, as is nearly always the case, be filled or nearly filled. In 2012, when 1.62 million fans attended Grapefruit League games around the state, the Cardinals aver-aged 6,604 fans per home game. The Marlins home spring training atten-dance in 2012 was skewed because they played two exhibition games against the New York Yankees in their new regular-season home in Miami. The Yankees will come to Roger Dean Stadium this year for the first time since 2006. The Yankees are a huge draw. The Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers will also visit this year. Thats good news for many fans but also good news for business. Were blessed with the best schedule weve ever had at Roger Dean Sta-dium,Ž Mr. Witkowski said. The hum of activity extends from the stadium to the dozen practice fields as well as the stadium. Mr. Bauer said when the six minor-league teams for each franchise arrive, there will be about 350 players for each team on the premises. Thats 700 ballplayers, give or take a catcher or two. Although relocation of teams to other cities is fairly common in spring training, he said both teams will be at Roger Dean Stadium for a while. Both have extended their leases from 2017 to 2027, according to Mr. Bauer. In recent years, though, fewer teams have trained on Floridas east coast. The Baltimore Orioles moved from Fort Lauderdale to Sarasota in 2010 and in 2009 the Los Angeles Dodg-ers moved from Vero Beach to Glendale, Ariz. The Washington Nationals, who train in Viera, are considering other options not on the east coast of Florida. If they move away, that would leave only the Cardinals and Marlins and the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie on the east coast. Our teams are watching the landscape,Ž Mr. Bauer said. You dont want to be in a case of musical chairs where youre the last one on the east coast so we are watching intently.Ž For now and through 2027, the Marlins and Cardinals arent going anywhere. Instead, theyll soon be here. The official report dates for their pitch-ers and catchers is Feb. 12. The remain-ing players are scheduled to report Feb. 15. The first game at Roger Dean Stadium will be Saturday, Feb. 23, when the Marlins play the Cardinals. On that day, for the first time this year, the home plate umpire will bellow the traditional Play ball!Ž to signal the start of the game. But listen closer and one can hear more, the jingle-jangle of coins and the crinkling of paper money as another $53 million or so explodes into the Palm Beach County economy.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY company since the 1980s, when the company had just one store, at Royal Poinciana Way and County Road in Palm Beach. I tell the story that the business started when my mother was 52, and as my mom got older, the clothing got older,Ž Mrs. Weissman says. It started because she couldnt find that was the right fabric, the right colors, age-appro-priate, the fit.Ž But what was right for her retiree mom was not necessarily a good fit with younger women, like the 50-some-thing Mrs. Weissman. When I became in charge, I wanted to bring it back to the age range it should be,Ž she says. So we have redone all the stores to bring them more up to date with the times. Theyre a little more contemporary looking and fresh, and changing up our windows to attract people of a different genera-tion. There are people who come in the store, and say, Am I getting that old that I now shop in the store, or is the store getting younger? Its younger, not young.Ž Evelyn & Arthurs window illustrates that point. Mannequins wear Lisa Todd sweaters that bear bold, graphic designs „ one even has a skull motif. You couldnt picture Evelyn Lewis wearing some-thing like that. Anything that has color and is eyecatching and a little different, even though Im wearing all black, is fabu-lous,Ž she says. But that black ensemble is from Evelyn & Arthurs private label. The look is dressy, but decidedly casual, and much of it is made in New York. People dont dress the same way they did 20 years ago. They dont dress up to go to the theater. They dont get dressed up to go to their churches or their temples. Its a more casual lifestyle, and we had to gear the mer-chandise to todays lifestyle. So you dont see people in the silk cable-knit sweater and pants.Ž Last November, the company opened a store in Sarasota; it also has a west coast store in Estero. And though it is across the state from the companys core, merchandise remains much the same. In addition to the resort and casual wear, the stores offer tropically inspired serve ware, hostess gifts, toys and the like. That came about because Mrs. Lewis loved a store in New Yorks Soho that offered giftware in black, silver and white. The Manalapan store has the largest quantities of such items, Mrs. Weissman says. Otherwise, Sarasota will skew the same way as Palm Beach, but its just the sea-sonality of Sarasota. They probably run the same sea-son as Palm Beach and PGA runs a little more year-round,Ž she says. When Mrs. Weissmans parents started Evelyn & Arthur in the 80s, Palm Beach tended to shut down for the summer. Restaurants and stores closed, and the employees headed North to work in their compa-nies summer outposts. South Florida now is home to more year-round residents, but business, at least in Palm Beach, still rises in winter and drops off in summer. It is consistently the same. It is the most unpredictable predictable busi-ness or predictable unpredictable busi-ness youve ever seen, because no mat-ter what you do, you can still see the percentage of business you do in a year by month, now it is all just predicable,Ž she says. Mrs. Weissman will not release sales figures for the company, but says, Its like the customers read our daily num-bers, and say, Well come shop today because theyre up against this number. Its really remarkable. Its very funny.Ž It is a different level of intensity from, say, the careers she and her hus-band had at Macys. It was very funny coming here at first. What they would consider a busy day in the store, I used to say I could do with one hand tied behind my back because I was coming off of Macys,Ž she says. But the personal contacts here and the community involvement and what you can do and influence is so much greater when you have your own business and its only 10 stores, and getting out into the commu-nity and giving back is so important to me, and being at Macys you couldnt do that. You didnt have that kind of control. Corporate did what corporate wanted to control.Ž Being in charge means Mrs. Weissman and her husband can pick and choose their sponsorships and charitable involvement. She was a sponsor of this years Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, and chaired the 2009 Komen Race for the Cure in 2009, and sits on the board of the Habili-tation Center of the Palm Beaches. The Weissmans are involved in their temple and have two daughters, one a teacher, the other in public relations. The Weissmans will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in May. And we still work together,Ž she says, laughing. Perhaps that feeds her enthusiasm for the business. Theres an energy when you come into the stores, and this store is fabu-lous. Since I live in Jupiter, Im here a lot. Peoples reaction to the store is always nice to hear, you know, and meeting customers,Ž she says. Mrs. Weissman says her customers appreciate a personal touch that comes from having longtime employees. You go to the department store and you dont have that. You really dont have any personal service or atten-tion. ƒ We have a woman down in our Manalapan store has been with us 28 years, and a lot of people have been with us 18 years, 15 years, 10 years, so a customer comes in and theyre seeing the same people all the time and they really become family.Ž Moments later, employee Judy Devore sneaks up behind Mrs. Weiss-man, places two fingers behind her head and asks, Are you on TV?Ž She hires the needy,Ž Ms. Devore says. I hire my friends,Ž Mrs. Weissman says. She does hire her friends,Ž says Ms. Devore. When you need part-time seasonal, flexible people, theyre some of my friends,Ž Mrs. Weissman says. The joke is that I was working all the time and I didnt want them to go to lunch without me, so I made them work.Ž She pauses to greet a customer, walking in from the neighboring Aqua Beach Wear. Linda! Hello, how are you? You get a bathing suit?Ž The woman laughs.A cover-up, which is way better than a bathing suit,Ž she says. You know, Ive gotten a couple of those Dammit! dolls and now everyone thinks theyre the greatest thing in world.Ž She laughs again and heads into the store, no doubt to buy one of the $15 dolls. The user whacks the cloth doll against a table or a wall while shouting Dammit!Ž Its a great stress reliever, Mrs. Weissman says. And thats an example of the humor at Evelyn & Arthur. We have a new rabbi at our temple and I presented her with this at the installation. Everybody was saying all these wonderful things, and whatever,Ž she says laughing. I said, you know, youre not going to love every day.Ž After all, temple is a place where people may bring their burdens, and not every institution can be Evelyn & Arthur. Q DRESSESFrom page 1 SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYAdrianne Weissman says she has updated her stores and merchandise to attract a younger range of customers.“I tell the story that the business started when my mother was 52, and as my mom got older, the clothing got older.

Here are three red flags to watch forAdam kept glancing at his phone. Marlene knew something was up, because her husband was not acting like himself. When he excused himself to go to another room to take a business call,Ž Marlene couldnt shake a feeling of dread. She just knew the call was from Beth, the newest associate at Adams firm. When Beth first started at the firm, Adam had spoken about her frequently, remarking about her quick transition, and how much the partners welcomed her input. Although Marlene had never once doubted her husbands loyalty in their 30 years of marriage, there was something about Beth that really disturbed her. It all started at the annual Christmas party. The way Beth looked at Adam sent warning prickles up Marlenes spine. And when Marlene made a point of saying hello to Beth, the response was downright chilly. Adam had laughed when Marlene raised her apprehensions, and told her she was being totally ridiculous. But, when Adam completely stopped mentioning Beths name after that, it did nothing to reassure Marlenes concerns. Even the closest marriages are vulnerable to the ravages of outside influ-ences. This statement is not intended to create havoc. Rather, its a wake-up call for all of us to pay close attention and to take important steps to protect our most important relationships. The late Shirley Glass, one of the worlds leading experts on infidelity, wrote a widely acclaimed book called Not Just Friends.Ž She warned that an alarming number of her clients who engaged in extra-marital affairs were not intentionally seeking outside thrills, as is often believed. Rather, the overwhelming majority of her clients whod had affairs professed theyd started the relationships strictly just as friends.Ž These were decent folks who had unwittingly formed deep, passionate connections before realizing theyd crossed the line from platonic friendship into romantic love. As Glass pointed out, well-intentioned people who had not planned to stray, betrayed, not only their partners, but also their own beliefs and moral values, provoking inner crises as well as marital ones.Ž The skeptics will say: They should have known better!Ž And, of course, they should have. Theres really no adequate justification for deceit and betrayal. We must all take responsibility for the impact our behavior has on the ones we care most about. Not Just FriendsŽ describes how todays world of the Internet, and work-place and social environments, place women and men in close proximity like never before. There are countless opportunities to embark on slippery slopesŽ to dangerous territories that many people never fully intended to enter. Some platonic friendships are turning into emotional affairs, usually gradually, and often without premedita-tion. There is a shared camaraderie and enjoyment that is initially labeled fully innocent.Ž This is not to say that men and women are not able to have friendships that are appropriate and respectful to their marriages. Glass took special care to distinguish the difference between a true platonic friend, and a friendship that has now become an affair. There are three main red flags that character-ize the shift. 1. In an affair, the emotional intimacy intensifies as the two look forward to their time together and share more and more personal information. They have begun to talk in a familiar way that rightfully belongs in the domain of the committed relationship. The lure of the affair is often how the unfaithful partner is mirrored back through the adoring eyes of the new love. Another appeal is the opportunity to grow and experience new roles and feelings about ones self. 2. Secrecy waxes the slippery slopeŽ as the two concoct more and more white lies and evasively avoid disclosing the extent of their relationship. As Glass reports: The secret nature of their rela-tionship automatically increases their intensity and fuels their preoccupation with each other.Ž 3. Sexual chemistry is usually fueling the intensity of the emotional rela-tionship. However, many people delude themselves that if they are not sexually consummating the relationship, they have not violated their vows to be f aithful. Although its hard for some to imag-ine, some of the greatest betrayals can happen without touching. Infidelity is any emotional or sexual intimacy that violates trust. Theres a quick way to tell if youre really just friends or having an emo-tional affair: When a friend knows more about your marriage than a spouse knows about your friendship, you have already reversed the healthy position of walls and windows. To re-establish a marriage that is intimate and trusting after a breach, the walls and windows must be recon-structed to conform to the safety code and keep the structure of the marriage so that it can withstand the test of time. You install a picture widow between you and your marriage partner and con-struct a solid or opaque wall to block out contact with third parties. This arrangement nurtures your marriage and protects if from outside elements and interference. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist in Palm Beach Gardens.

Plevy, founder and co-chair of the annual luncheon.Our Grand Matriarch the first year was the Countess de Hoernle, and I can think of no one more worthy to assume the title in 2013 than Sydelle Meyer, her name is synonymous with cultural and commu-nity philanthropy in Palm Beach County,Ž said Ms. Plevy in a prepared statement. A lover of great art, bright colors and the generous gesture, and she continues to be an active supporter of numerous local nonprofit organizations from the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to the Norton Museum of Art, from Alzheimers Community Care to the Marshall Founda-tion for the Everglades to the Kravis Cen-ter for the Performing Arts.ŽThree other women are being honored at the luncheon, which is a benefit for Quantum House. Their short bios were provided by the luncheon organization: Q Ruth Young: The Director of Sales & Marketing at The Colony Hotel since 1993, the effervescent and efficient Ruth Young is a Palm Beach fixture.

Q A month of antiques events in South FloridaGerman toymaker’s mechanical vehicles in demandChildren like to play with toys that are replicas of things used in everyday life. They also like toys that move and make noise, so for centuries toymakers have created transportation toys. There are very old toys shaped like chariots, stagecoaches and canoes. But by the late 1800s and early 1900s, new develop-ments like trains, cars, buses, motorcy-cles and bikes, as well as airplanes, bal-loons, blimps, helicopters and imaginary flying saucers and spaceships, became favorites. Gunthermann was a German company that manufactured toys from 1877 to 1965. It made many of the toy vehicles wanted by todays collectors. In September 2012, a tin doubledecker toy bus made in the 1930s „ a copy of a full-size bus of the day „ sold at a Bertoia auction in New Jersey. It has an ad for Fords AutomobileŽ on the top, a street name, High Street,Ž on the front, and General,Ž the name of the bus company, on the sides and front. The orange and red combination of colors may be a bit imaginative, but the bus has realistic parts, a rear stairwell, upper-deck bench seating and a driv-er. It moves by a wind-up clockwork mechanism. The 9-inch toy, part of a well-known collection, sold for $2,006. Q: My plastic-and-metal Mickey Mouse tea set is in its original box and has never been opened. It has four plates, four cups and saucers, four sets of flatware and a teapot. The box is labeled Wolverine Toys, Division of Spang Inc., Walt Disney Product.Ž I paid $50 for the set a few years ago at a Midwestern antiques shop. What is the set worth today? A: Your Disneyana tea set was made after 1968, the year Wolverine Toy Co. of Pittsburgh was purchased by Spang Industries of Butler, Pa. The company moved opera-tions to Arkansas in 1971. Dis-ney tea sets, even plastic ones made in the 1970s, are wanted by collectors. Yours could sell today for $100 to $150. Q: Many years ago, I was given a battery-operated toy monkey holding a cym-bal in each hand. When its turned on, the monkey claps the cymbals together, and when its tapped on the head, it stops clapping and makes a squeal-ing noise. Then it goes back to clapping the cymbals again. Its about 10 inches high. How old is it and is it worth anything? A: Your cymbal-playing monkey was made in Japan from the 1950s into the 70s by a company named C-K. The toy is called Musical Jolly Chimp.Ž It was a popular toy and similar versions were made by other companies. The cymbal-playing monkey even appeared in the movie Toy Story 3.Ž The value of your toy is $150 to $300, depending on its condition. The original box adds value. Q: I just read your column about vintage slot machines. I own a similar countertop machine thats still in its original box. The silver-colored metal nameplate on the front of the blue machine states its an Atom Ball Gum Vendor.Ž Embossed on the top are the words, Win a carton, 10 packs of ciga-rettes, line up 3 of a kind.Ž If you insert a dime, the three small windows on the top show spinning images of cigarette brands. If the three line up with the same brand, a customer won a box of cigarettes. If they didnt line up, all you got was a gumball. My dad placed machines like this in bars and nightclubs in Iowa. The machines were bolted to countertops, and every so often I would go with him to refill the gumballs and remove the dimes. When the gambling machines were outlawed, he had to get rid of them so he dumped them in the river. But I hid this one in the attic. What is it worth? A: Your trade stimulatorŽ was made in 1949 by Groetchen Tool & Manufac-turing Co. of Chicago. Its exactly like the companys Imp machine, introduced in 1940. But the dawn of the atomic age after World War II meant that a lot of things were renamed AtomŽ or Atomic.Ž Trade stimulators, which made money for shop owners, were banned in many states even before the federal ban in 1951. But vintage machines can be legally bought and sold in many states now. Just be sure to check your own states laws before you sell. Your Atom machine is valued at about $165. But with the original box, it could sell for much more.Tip: Andirons get tarnished and covered with resin from smoke, so they should be regularly cleaned with liquid metal polish and 0000-grade steel wool.

While this is a convenient alter-native to paper cl utter, the Better Business Bureau is reminding shoppers to protect their identity in the process. Many retailers offer e-receipts for both our convenience and theirs. E-receipts save retailers money, and they make it easier for you to elec-tronically file them away until theyre needed for returns, warranties or taxes. E-receipts can often be tied to your store affinity card, but you can often opt for paperless simply by providing your email address to the clerk at the time of purchase. There are also online companies that offer to organize and store digital receipts. You must create an account and provide your credit or debit card information, which the company uses to track transactions. After purchases, the company retrieves receipt infor-mation directly from retailers and stores it online. Be careful! Obviously this kind of service is ripe for scam-mers to mimic in order to steal your information. While paperless receipts may offer savings for retailers and convenience to you, be sure youre aware of what else you could be receiving in your inbox. Along with receipts, businesses may send junk mailŽ filled with sur-veys, coupons and other promotional offers. They may also use your infor-mation to build profiles on demo-graphics and buying habits. For shoppers who are interested in opting for the paperless, e-receipt, BBB offers the following tips: € Find out how the business plans to keep your information secure. Youll want to check to see if the busi-ness plans on selling your information to third parties. If they do, be on the lookout for unsolicited emails request-ing your personal information; they could be scams that download mal-ware on your computer. € Ask if you can opt-out of receiving promotional emails. Now that the business has your email address, its possible youll start to receive coupons, newsletters and other promotional emails from themƒand even from others if theyve sold or shared your data. € You may want to set up a separate email address to use for paper-less receipts so that you can easily monitor it for spam. € Beware of scams! Having receipts emailed can also make you susceptible to phishing and other identity theft scams. Scammers pose as retailers or banks with realistic-looking emails that may claim there are problems with your purchase and request that you click a link to fix it. The link may take you to a fraudulent site that asks for your personal infor-mation, or it might download malware on your computer that will search your hard drive for account numbers and passwords. € Make sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date. Whether or not you plan to increase your Internet and email use, its always a good idea to make sure your systems security plan is updated regularly. Spammers feed off of online shoppers who fail to update their security patches.

The great story is no longer great enough; the good numbers are no longer good enough. And the stock has plummeted. Since mid-September, it has been hard times for Apple investors „ at least for those investors who have been long the stock. Yet, for investors shorting Apple, profits have been gargantuan and quick. Apple reached $705 per share price on Sept. 18. As of Friday, Jan. 25, it closed at $439. Apple is 38 percent off its peak. What has happened? Apple, in consumer terms, was noted for its rollout of new generational tech hardware. In Wall Street terms, it was loved for its positive surprises in revenues, earnings, units sold, profit margin expansion and more. Apple migrated and expanded margins as it rolled from high-end desktops to notebooks to iPods to iPhones to iPads all with slick look and great functions. Then came the hammer. On Jan 23, Apple reported no profit margin growth and the slowest increase in sales in 14 quarters. Apples business model has been shiny new hardware and proprietary code. In smartphone and notepads/portable comput-ing hardware, Apple had no peer. That is until Google, which is not a hardware pro-vider, decided to expand beyond being No. 1 in search engines and become ubiquitous in data management and storage. Google real-ized that portable computing would eventu-ally dominate the computing space and it created a strategy to offer free, open operat-ing software (the Android operating system). Open O/S allowed a large number of smartphone/hardware manufacturers to make products to compete with Apple. It also allowed millions of third-party soft-ware developers for its apps to contribute to Androids success. Google helps the manu-facturers, as its goal has been to drive the price of smartphone hardware as far and as fast as possible. The more hardware out there, the more data it controls and stores and searches „ and for which it finds ways to get paid. So it is possibly Google that has set the stage for Apples stumbling. Of all the Android manufacturers, Samsung emerged as market leader by offering high-end, sleek, functional and much cheaper portable computing hardware (smartphone and tablets). Until 2012, Apple had little com-petition. Now, Samsungs products are taking off internationally (particularly in behemoths such as China and India) as they allow less wealthy international consumers to buy high-end portable computing hardware. Its smartphone offers much longer battery life, a larger screen, an AMOLED screen (or active matrix organic light emitting diode screen „ screens that are not breakable.) Very cool „ especially for the Chinese who need the larger screen and longer life battery for their game-playing obsessions. Though statistics from Strategy Analytics, Gartner and IDC on global market pen-etration seem to widely conflict, they do not conflict with Samsungs leapfrog ahead. The website www.appleInsider quoted an IDC report as follows: Samsung easily outpaced Apple in 2012, growing its shipments by 129.1 percent, more than doubling Apples year-over-year growth. Samsung also saw its market share grow from 19 percent in 2011, when it was in a dead heat with Apple, to 39.6 percent in 2012, or nearly 15 percentage points ahead of Apple.Ž So how did Samsung do it? Some think the answer is found in its internal vertical manu-facturing process. In an industry character-ized by increasingly faster rollouts of smart-phones and tablets, integrated manufacturing is a very big deal. Apple shunned inte-grated manufacturing until recently when it announced a co-venture with a manufactur-ing partner „ Foxconn in China will remain Apples outsourced manufacturer. While Samsung dominates the market, Apple investors point to profitability and claim Apple supreme. Apple seems less per-turbed by market share as it corners 80 per-cent of profits in the smart-phone business. (Jan 23, the Times of India, Ex-Apple CEO: Apple wont pip Samsung in IndiaŽ) However, beyond market share, is the investment race really between Apple and Samsung? Isnt it hardware versus software, with Google as the real victor? So says a strong Apple critic, Reggie Middleton of As with most surprise negative stories (and we can easily think back to Goldman Sachs, BP, etc.), the bad news sometimes gets overpriced and cheap might get cheaper. Frequently, portfolio managers will sell a failed stock by month or quarter end so that their portfolio lists show no or little holding. Portfolio realignment can take a while and keeps pressure on the stock. The downward pressure on Apple might be buffered by the hedge funds, that were short Apple (counting on the eventual fall for Apple) and long Sam-sung or Google (counting on their relative outperformance) might be unwinding those trades now. Maybe Apple was over-bought and overloved at $705 and maybe it is over-sold and over-feared at $439. Google trades at 23 times earnings and Apple trades at 10 times. Apple has oodles of cash and pays a 2 percent dividend. Before you jump in and buy Apple, look to see if any of the few analysts who previously thought Apple was overvalued (such as Reg-gie Middleton) turn positive on the stock. Reggie has been right on Apple (hardware) vs. Google (software) strategies for more than two years. Talk to your advisor and determine suitability and strategies.

The mortgage giant launched a Freddie Mac Standard Short Sale program on Nov. 1 that sought to speed up the short sale process and make it easier and more transparent. We estimate that the time to complete a short sale will decrease by approximately 50 percent to 75 per-cent,Ž as a result of the changes, writes Tracy Mooney, Freddie Macs executive vice president in her recent blog post, according to the Florida Association of Realtors. We worked with our regula-tor, the Federal Housing Finance Agen-cy, to remove obstacles and streamline the process, so we can help more bor-rowers and reduce costs for the com-pany and taxpayers. The end result is a shorter short sale process thats long in benefits for borrowers.Ž Among the Nov. 1, 2012, changes:Q Mortgage servicers have 30 days to make a decision on a short sale once they receive an application. If they need to negotiate with a third party, they have 30 additional days. A final decision on the short sale must be made within 60 days. Q Mortgage servicers must acknowledge receipt of a short sale applica-tion within three days of submission. Servicers must provide weekly sta-tus updates if they need more time to review the application past the initial 30-day period. Q Mortgage servicers have the authority to approve short sales when qualify-ing financial hardships for homeowners who are past due or current on their mortgage payments. Q Mortgage servicers may also approve short sales without a separate review by the mortgage insurance com-pany. Following a short sale, homeowners may be able to qualify for up to $3,000 in relocation assistance. Q Most country club communities now offer more amenities than just golfAs season begins in South Florida, we are seeing many of our clients coming from the northeast as they do every year. Most come to the area with an idea of where they would like to be in the Palm Beaches. Last week, my husband and I worked with a wonderful couple, slightly new to the east coast of Florida. They had always vacationed on the west coast, but realized when they planned their trip here, they knew many friends from their present and past who were already living between Jupiter and Palm Beach Island. The husband is an avid golfer. The wife does not golf, but was not opposed to living in a country club community. As we began our search, the natural place to start was in the country club communi-ties. Beautiful homes with several ameni-ties are offered at various communities. As we looked at three or four clubs that have a great reputation for golf, the wife made it very clear that she would enter-tain the idea of living in a country club only if there was more to offer within the community than just the golf course. This seems to be a subject that is coming up quite frequently with many clients. The once traditionalŽ golf club communities are changing to offer own-ers and members more for the entire family. This change has happened sl owly over the past several years, but is a trend that continues to lure younger clientele into the golf communities. Most commu-nities and clubs recognize this is a neces-sity to keep their memberships active. As the larger communities began with many amenities „ communities such as BallenIsles, Ibis and Mirasol „ the lower density clubs are now following in the trend. Frenchmans Creek just completed a community resort style pool, spa and other family friendly areas. Loxahatchee Club has a brand new complex including pool, dining, fitness and tennis courts. Other clubs „ including Jupiter Hills and Lost Tree Village „ have com-pletely rebuilt their clubhouses. In addi-tion, many are renovating their current facilities. Although there is a cost involved for these luxuries, it has helped to maintain the values of the properties within these communities. Typically, membership is mandatory on some level with the pur-chase of a home, and this guarantees the club a new member and use of the new facilities. Within the current market, we have seen a consistent higher value maintained within the clubs that offer amenities for the community, whether it is a larger or more intimate environment. Since my client last week was mostly interested in the golf experience and his wife in the other amenities, they even discussed him joining two clubs. The community in which they decide to live would give him a chance to play a quick round of golf at any time, enjoy the social activities that the club had to offer, dine and ultimately make it more attractive for their grown children to come visit them. If he wanted to strictly play a golf game, he could join a second club for a different type of experience. Each night they were here, they dined with a different group of friends. In addi-tion to the information my husband and I had given them, they gathered several opinions from others. Most were very happy with the communities they live in, but the general consensus amongst their friends was to settle in a community that offered family friendly amenities. During their visit, the husband played golf at three of the communities in which they were interested in purchasing a home. They left at the end of the week and will be back within the next month to narrow down their choices and ulti-mately select the lifestyle they are look-ing for. Before they decide, the husband wants to experience the golf and the wife wants to experience the club. But one decision has been made „ whether they choose a larger club or one that is more intimate, it will have amenities for the entire family to enjoy.

B19 X THEATER SPOTLIGHT Expect actress Pat Bowie to walk tall in Palm Beach Dramaworks production of A Raisin in the Sun.Ž After all, she is Lena, the matriarch of the Younger family in Lorraine Hansberrys play, which opens Feb. 1. Seret Scott directs the piece. It is a role she knows well, having received glowing reviews for her por-trayal of Lena in other pro-ductions. For Ms. Bowie, returning to A Raisin in the SunŽ is like revealing layers of meaning. The more time you spend with the part, the more infor-mation you find,Ž she says. Its almost like peeling off layer upon layer, and I found more things to invest in.Ž The story, set in 1950s Chicago, tells the story of an African-American family that lives in a crowded apartment and is about to receive a $10,000 insurance check from the death of the father of the family. The drama of the play focus-es on how that money should be spent. Their adult son, Walter, wants to invest the money in a liquor store with two of his friends. Lena does not approve of selling liquor, and would prefer to use part of the money as down payment on a house in a white neighborhood. This family is poor and struggling.They try to do it as best they can, and hope things for the next generation are different,Ž Ms. Bowie says. But Lenas beliefs and her chil-drens beliefs are different.Ž Hence the conflict.But there is a certain depth Lorraine Hansberry brings to her writing of the 1957 play, which was later adapted to a film that starred Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee. The story is based on the struggle that Miss Hansberrys family faced, fighting segregation in Chicago.Actress finds layers of meaning in “Raisin”Think of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, and you think of musicals. This season, which marks the theaters 10th anniversary, has three musicals „ The Music Man,Ž Singing in the RainŽ and Thoroughly Modern Millie.Ž But it opened with Amadeus,Ž a dark play about a musical genius. And it is set to open a second, weighty play, John Patrick Shanleys Doubt: A Parable,Ž on Feb. 3. In Doubt,Ž a young priests actions are called into ques-tion. Did he engage in something improper with a stu-dent? At the heart of the play is the conflict between Father Flynn and the parish schools strict prin-cipal, Sister Aloysius. It is 1964, a time of transition for the nation and for Catholics. And it is set in the Bronx, which also was in the throes of transition. Bringing it all together is director J. Barry Lewis, returning to the Maltz for his fifth pro-duction there. Tony Award nominee Maureen Anderman, who just wrapped up a much-praised turn in Palm Beach Dramaworks production of Edward Albees A Delicate Balance,Ž stars as Sister Aloysius. Jim Ballard, a veteran of many South Florida productions, is Father Flynn. Rounding out the cast are Julie Kleiner as Sister James and Karen Stephens as Mrs. Muller, both actresses known for their work throughout the region. Much of the action is between two people onstage. That is something with which Mr. Lewis is familiar „ he also is resident director at Palm Beach Dramaworks.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSBeware the faux-complimentI picked the wrong time to visit New York. High temperatures in the low 20s, low temperatures in the mid-teens. A wind chill that makes me wish Id never left Southwest Florida. In weather like this, you have to bundle up „ Im talking long johns, hunting caps, coats with upturned collars. This was my wardrobe dur-ing my recent visit, with every inch of skin covered except my eyes. What a surprise, then, when I stepped out of the subway station and a man on the street spoke to me. Hey, mam,Ž he said in the way men speak to women in short skirts. I looked around. Was he talking to me? The street was empty and he seemed to be looking in my direc-tion, although it was hard to tell with all those layers. I started to be flat-tered. I think compliments are good for us „ good for the ego and good for the soul. But does it count if the person handing out the praise cant see your face? What if he cant make out the shape of your body? Is it still a compliment or just a reflex? Over the course of my trip, I learned there are a lot of false com-pliments out there, things people say that should make us feel good but end up making us doubt ourselves. Not long after that first cold night, I met an old friend in the city at one of those quintessentially New York diners. Our waiters name was Nelson. He had a Bronx accent and a joking, easy-going manner. When he came back to the table to take our order a second time but we were still catching up, he laughed and said to my friend, Why are you making this „Ž He started to say beautiful.Ž I heard it. He got the bŽ out before he stopped and looked at me. I dont know if its that Im over 30 in a city where 27 feels pass, if my hair and my clothes say Southwest Florida more than New York, or if my cheeks and nose were still red from the cold. But he changed course. Why are you making this nice lady wait for dinner?Ž Nice lady? Is that even a compliment? But the worst came later that week, when I had lunch with another friend I hadnt seen in more than a year. We met up at our favor-ite burger joint, a place we used to eat at once a week. Just because I havent seen him in a while doesnt mean Im not still eating cheese-burgers. In fact, Id say I eat more than my fair share. But when my friend stepped through the door and came close to hug me, the first thing he said was, Youre so skinny.Ž I know this is the sort of thing women like to hear. But my friend said it with a curled lip and a furrowed brow in the kind of voice that asks, Did you recently acquire a tapeworm?Ž The prevailing wisdom says we should not rely on others for our self-confidence, that looking externally for internal reassurance will always disappoint. And to this I say: Aint that the truth. Q s o a l p t artis

That was the inspiration behind Mr. Seamans vibrant and colorful painting Kellys PalmŽ which has been selected as the official poster of this years Arti-Gras Fine Arts Festival set for Feb.16-18 at Abacoa, Artigras announced at a party, and in a prepared statement. Seaman, who is an art supply distributor representative and an art sup-ply consultant, participated in ArtiGras emerging artists program last year and juried into ArtiGras this year. The native Floridian tries to paint at least once a week and credits his style of painting on his 25-year friendship with artist Joseph LaPierre, a talented and popular artist who died in 2009, the same year he was selected as the Arti-Gras poster artist. Like Mr. LaPierre, Mr. Seaman works with a palette knife and heavy bodied paints which allow him to capture his love for Florida and Bahamian landscapes in a loose, vibrant and colorful way. The 2013 ArtiGras poster will be available for purchase online at or in the ArtiGras Merchan-dise Booth at the festival. Mr. Seaman will be in the Merchandise Booth signing posters for patrons on Saturday, February 16 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and again on Monday, February 18 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Festival hours for ArtiGras are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, February 16; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, February 17; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, February 18, 2013. The outdoor arts event showcases a juried exhibition of outstanding fine art along with activities which include live entertainment, artist demonstrations, interactive art activities for all ages, a youth art competition and the opportu-nity to meet more than 300 of the top artists from around the world. General admission tickets to ArtiGras are available online at for the advance ticket price of $6. Advance tickets are also available at the Gardens Mall (Information Desk), the Maltz Jupiter Theater, and Roger Dean Stadium. Admission at the gate is $10, with children 12 and under admitted free of charge. FPL official Don Kiselewski named chair of 2013 ArtiGras The 2013 ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival announced that Don Kiselewski has been appointed Chair of the 28th edition of Arti-Gras. Mr. Kiselewski is the director of external affairs for Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and immediate past chair of the Board of Directors for the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIts sort of a different take on „ I call it the delivery system „ in that you have to be very aware of the surround-ings. Theyre just bigger,Ž Mr. Lewis says. This is a very intimate play, every scene except for one, is one or two peo-ple. Even like Red, that was produced here last year, they can work in the larger houses. You just have to be aware of how its delivered, where its landing.Ž He gets a little help from Mr. Shanleys script. What I like about this particular piece, clearly from the start, when the priest steps forward and he is addressing one of his homilies, he is talking directly to the members of the audience who he puts as if they are the members of the congregation, so they are brought into the world right away,Ž he says. It breaks that fourth wall, and by doing so, it creates that sense of inti-macy, and when you have this kind of play, which is about issues of judgment, morality, issues of doubt, questions, you want that intimacy, that feeling of oneness together. Its something we will be con-stantly working on.Ž Intimate, yes. But Sister Aloysius is intimidating „ even a nuns habit that lurks at the side of a rehearsal studio at the Maltz gives one pause. She is an appalling, appalling character in what we hear her say, but there has to be underneath that texture, that layer, a sense of humanity that must be present,Ž Mr. Lewis says, remembering that the nun had lost her husband dur-ing World War II and had no children of her own. Ms. Anderman agrees.She is written in a straight line. The more you study it and the more you read it and look at the play, you find you the other elements in her,Ž she says. Shes the principal of the school for a reason. She is Old World. She is Catholic. Im not going to say stuck, but she is. Shes the old school. She believes in fountain pens. Thats how she wants to keep things in that order.Ž Part of her ability to cope and to maintain order is to see things in black and white. She must have her own sense of understanding of the world. Shes older, she has been married, she has seen a lot, and the way she seems to cope with what she sees is by narrowing that which is right and that which is wrong,Ž Mr. Lewis says. That she would spar with the young priest is a given. Were two bulls. Thats what J. Barry calls us,Ž says Mr. Ballard. You say youre not one of my truant boys.Ž Ms. Anderman says she has first-hand experience. I went back to my childhood. I was in Catholic school in 1964. I remember that time. I remember it quite vividly,Ž she says. Jim was raised Catholic in a very different era.Ž Mr. Ballard draws on an uncle for inspiration. He was a very energetic and young and vivacious priest, and henceforth hes no longer a priest anymore,Ž Mr. Ballard says, adding that his uncle moved on to other things after 30 years in the priesthood. And Father Flynn?He is a conundrum. He is a fascinating character. He is a character that is of the street. He came from the street. He came from this kind of working-class neighborhood. He knows these people. He knows also that they do not need to be preached at. They need to be shared with,Ž says the director, Mr. Lewis. Sister James is caught between the two. Sister James is very innocent, very nave,Ž Ms. Kleiner says. Sister Aloysius is someone from whom she needs guidance. Its a little scary. Its also someone I respect and I want to learn from, so theres that level of humanity in there, too,Ž she says. As well as growing level of humanity for her own character. One of the things we talk about is how my character really goes through such a huge journey. She is the voice of the audience in Doubt.Ž Karen Stephens has a brief, but pivotal role as the mother of a boy who may have been molested by Father Flynn. She is a working-class mother who has her child in this Catholic school,Ž says Ms. Stephens. She is someone who will sacrifice to get her child a good education, and the future of her child is her primary focus.Ž Her scene, in which she meets with Sister Aloysius, is substantial, and it doesnt hurt that she gets to work with Ms. Anderman. She brings all that stature and authority the sister has being the principal of the school and me having to go speak to her about my son,Ž Ms. Stephens says. Ms. Stephens character may never know the whole story behind what did or did not go on with her son. Thats for each member of the audience to come up with on their own. I know, and were figuring it out as we go along, but thats the whole point of play,Ž Mr. Ballard says. Says Mr. Lewis: These other issues of impropriety, morality, there are no answers here. There are suppositions, there are results that take place, but thats the brilliance that I find in the writing.Ž Q >>What: “Doubt: A Parable” >>When: Feb. 3-17 >>Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E. Indiantown Road, Jupiter>>Cost: $46 and up >>Info: 575-2223 or in the know >>What: “A Raisin in the Sun” >>When: Feb. 1-March 3 >>Where: Palm Beach Dramaworks’ Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach>>Cost: $55 for all performances. Student tickets are available for $10>>Info: 514-4042 or www.palmbeach in the know I talked to Seret about the depth and understanding she has about this piece,Ž Ms. Bowie says, comparing her return to the piece as being sort of like when you read a good novel and go back and reread it. Its a new experience and things start to affect you in a different way.Ž The depth of Miss Hansberrys work is more amazing when one realizes she was 27 when she pub-lished the play. It was the first play by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway, and at 29, she became the youngest American playwright and the fifth woman to receive the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. She seemed destined for even greater things, but died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 34, before the death of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., and before cities across America erupted. During her short life, Miss Hansberry served on the staff of the newspaper Freedom, published under the guidance of singer-activist Paul Robeson. She worked with the great activist W.E.B. DuBois. She was a keen observer of people and events. Its going to be really interesting when you listen to whats said. I heard the monologue and said, My God, how could she be so aware in 1957?Ž Ms. Bowie says. And through the play, Ms. Bowie looks back to her own experiences. Im older now. Things shift and change „ even bodies shift and change. You have to use your experience on what youre doing today,Ž she says. That extends to this version of the play, which also has been adapted as a musical and for television. This one seems to be a little deeper, and it gets to the heart of it,Ž she says. And getting to the heart of it means transcending time, place and even race. The wonderful idea of a play like this is that you could take a cast of any color and put them in it,Ž Ms. Bowie says. Its universal.Ž Q “RAISIN”From page 1COURTESY PHOTO Pat Bowie portrays Lena Younger, the matriarch of her family, in “A Raisin in the Sun.”HANSBERRY KLEINER STEPHENS COURTESY PHOTO Jim Ballard and Maureen Anderman in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s “Doubt: A Parable.”“DOUBT”From page 1

CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKER A communication problemEntries pose a problem in the play of many deals. In the case of declarer, an abundance of winners in either his own hand or dummy is worthless if there is no way of reaching them. The defenders might likewise be faced with this difficulty. Either defend-er might have tricks that cannot be utilized because there is no entry card in the hand that holds the good tricks. The defenders sometimes can solve this problem if they use their resources expeditiously. Here is such a case. Let's first assume that West leads a heart in response to East's overcall, and that East covers dummy's queen with the king, which South ducks. As a result of this communications-breaking play by declarer, he makes the contract. If East continues the suit, South finesses the ten and leads a club. No matter when or how the defenders take their A-K of clubs, East's hearts wind up withering on the vine, and South even-tually scores three club tricks to make the contract. Note that if declarer slips by winning the opening heart lead, he goes down. Whenever he leads a club, West wins with the king and returns a heart to East's jack, and East leads a third heart to establish his suit. East still has the club ace as an entry, and South goes down two. Note also, though, that East can defeat the contract if he plays the seven of hearts on the opening lead! By allow-ing declarer to win the first trick with the queen, he maintains a heart contact with West that prevents South from scoring more than seven tricks. Thus, if declarer plays a club at trick two, West takes his king and returns a heart to East's K-J. The race for the establishment of tricks is won by the defense, and South winds up taking sec-ond money. Q

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Good news: Your skillful handling of a recent matter has won admiration from someone who could be influential in any upcoming decisions involving you. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You continue to welcome new friends into the widening circle of peo-ple whom you hold dear. One of those newcomers soon might have something special to tell you. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It could be risky to push for a project you believe in but others are wary of. Never mind. If you trust your facts, follow your courageous Aries heart and go with it. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your enthusiasm sparks renewed inter-est in a workplace project that once seemed headed for deletion. Support from supervisors helps you make all necessary changes. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A colleague might be a bit too contrary when your ideas are being discussed in the workplace. A demand for an expla-nation could produce some surprises all around. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to avoid distractions at a time when maintaining stability in a fluid situation is essential. Therell be time enough later for the Moon Child to enjoy some well-earned fun and games. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Stop wasting energy licking your wounded pride. Instead, put the lessons you learned from that upsetting experience to good use in an upcoming opportunity. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You love being busy. But try not to make more work for yourself than you need to. Get help so that you dont wind up tackling tasks that are better left to others. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually balanced way of assessing situations could be compro-mised by some so-called new facts. Check them out before making any shift in judgment. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel angry over an unexpected shift in attitude by someone you trusted. But this could soon turn in your favor as more surpris-ing facts come out. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Love rules everywhere for all amorous Archers, single or attached. Its also a good time to restore friendships that might have frayed over the years. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Its not always easy for the proud Goat to forgive past slights. But clearing the air could help estab-lish a better climate for that important upcoming venture.

CAPSULESQuartet +++ (Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly) At a retirement home for musicians, old friends try to convince a newcomer and former diva (Ms. Smith) to join them in singing Verdis Rigo-lettoŽ at their annual gala. Although the story is predictable, the charming, endearing performances and quirky dia-log win you over. Rated PG-13.Django Unchained +++ (Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio) A bounty hunter (Mr. Waltz) and a freed slave named Django (Mr. Foxx) team up to rescue Djangos wife (Kerry Washington) from a sinis-ter plantation owner (Mr. DiCaprio). Writer/director Quentin Tarantino is at his best with this fresh homage to Blaxploitation and spaghetti westerns, highlighted by strong performances. Rated R. Q ++++ Is it worth $10? YesWhat a heartbreaking, beautiful love story. Were all going to die, and some of us will be lucky enough to grow old gracefully. But what happens when the gracefulness wears off? That question is at the center of the deeply beating heart of Amour,Ž a wonder-ful film that depicts a genuine love rarely seen on the big screen. In France, Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are a married couple in their 80s. Enjoying life together, they are both retired music teach-ers, and Annes former pupil (Alexandre Tharaud) has gone on to great success. Then Anne has a stroke and everything changes. Shes paralyzed on her right side and needs a wheelchair. We dont see the stroke or any of the traumatic events that make her progressively worse, an apt deci-sion by writer/director Michael Haneke that allows us to stay away from histrionics and focus on the love and care Georges shows for Anne. To that end, we also never see them in a hospital, with a doctor or anywhere outside their apartment except for the films open-ing moments. Their pain is for them, not the world, to see. Its as if Mr. Haneke wants the viewer to be a fly on the wall in the apart-ment, unobtrusive yet privy to the day-in, day-out difficulty thats often overlooked for the more dramaticŽ moments in movies. This is consistent with the directors body of work: Hes brutal and relentless in showing us things we dont want to see (Funny GamesŽ), and fully capable of doing it in such a way that it reso-nates with profound emotion. Watching Anne sl owly, steadily decline is heartbreaking. Theres a moment when she gets out of bed to get a book from a nearby nightstand, but falls and cant get back up. Another time Georges tries to give her water and she refuses to drink. When she wakes up wet, Georges, without hesita-tion or judgment but with only utmost l ove, cleans up after her like its not a big deal. And as bad as it is for her, think about how torturous it is for Georges to watch the strong woman hes loved most of his life become completely dependent on others and lose her will to live. Mr. Trintignant gives Georges a steely exterior „ we never see him cry, for exam-ple „ but we do occasionally glimpse in his face the anguish thats otherwise sup-pressed. Ms. Riva similarly shows emotions on her face, but for an altogether different reason: Shes often lying in bed under blan-kets. Her optimism that turns to content-ment, then frustration and then resignation feels palpably real. Both octogenarian actors are splendid and deserve every accolade they receive. Georges and Anne do get a few visitors. The important one is their daughter Eva, who means well but doesnt understand the privacy her parents desire. How could she? She thinks Mom should be getting help, exercise, therapy to help her get better. Only Georges knows „ and at one point bluntly tells his daughter „ that Mom isnt going to get better, shes only going to get progres-sively worse until she slips away. How awful to hear, and even worse to have to say. If AmourŽ doesnt inspire you to think of friends and loved ones whove gone through something similar, nothing will. Death is inevitable for us all, and one sup-poses theres no ideal way to die. But you cant help but fear that it might be this ardu-ous and painful.

Thats right BANDS.Mr. Seward, music director of the New Gardens Band, will lead a concert Feb. 2 at the Eissey Campus Theatre that includes his ensemble and The Coates Brass Band. That concert, marking the sesqui-centennial of the Civil War, will fea-ture music from that period by the Coates ensemble, musicians from Easton, Pa., who have recreated the 47th Penn sylvania Volunteer Infan-try Regiment band, a brass band that served in Florida 150 years ago. The music of that Civil War band era really set the formation for the modern concert band. These bands that were attached to all these divisions played the music of the day,Ž Mr. Seward says. They would have played such classics as The Battle Hymn of the RepublicŽ and Marching Through Georgia,Ž he says. And the Coates band is committed to recreating that look and that sound, right down to wearing the full uniforms and playing instruments that were used 150 years ago „ even original mouthpieces. In the 19th century, the regimental bands played the military music and then they entertained in the vari-ous regions around the country,Ž Mr. Seward says. This concert will be an opportunity for audiences to learn something. During the performance, Dr. Michael OConnor, who is a historian and faculty member at Palm Beach Atlantic Uni-versity, will give anecdotes to help the audience. Its going to be a real interesting and historical look into the past,Ž Mr. Seward says. Part of what makes it interesting is the tonal quality of the band. It has a unique sound, and it doesnt sound like a modern-day band, but it has the character,Ž he says. Audiences may be used to hearing the band play music of a slightly later time period. Usually during that time of year we would look at the music of John Philip Sousa, but were looking a little further back. Sousa will come marching back in March,Ž Mr. Seward says. What will the band play, if not Sousa?Were doing the music from the movie Gettysburg. We have a beautiful arrangement by an arranger of the U.S. Military Band,Ž he says. There will be a recitation of the Gettysburg Address, and such music as the original Johnny Comes Marching HomeŽ and The Blue and the Gray,Ž by Clare Grundman. We forget that The Yellow Rose of Texas, Dixie and all of those are incorporated. The audience will recog-nize the tunes, the melodies and learn they all came from the Civil War,Ž Mr. Seward says. The brass band will play the first half of the show, then will join the New Gar-dens Band for the second half. One of the soloists will be performing on an E-flat cornet,Ž Mr. Seward says. Being a drummer, Im going to play along with them.Ž And the brass band?The 47th Pennsylv ania Volunteer Infantry Regiment would have traveled by train, then boat to Key West in the 1860s, when they were stationed down there. At least travel is easier now. It was very difficult to persuade these guys to come back from Buffalo in February,Ž Mr. Seward says with a laugh.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15Bill Hirschman is on the nominating committee for the Carbonell Awards. He is editor, chief critic and reporter for Florida Theater on Stage, a website devoted to news and reviews about South Florida theater. See more at or call Mr. Hirschman at 954-478-1123.The 2013 Carbonell Award nominations mirror the changing face of South Florida theater. There are farewells for three companies that closed in 2012 and recognition of five troupes mounting their first works in 2012, plus community-by-community figures that presage shrinking theatrical options in Broward County. The 37th annual awards recognizing excellence in locally produced theater will be presented on Monday, April 1, at the Broward Performing Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are sold to the public, but insiders call it theater promŽ because industry professionals take the occasion to dress up and party afterward. Some of the nearly 100 nominations emphasized racial diversity with at least seven shows focusing on black themes, race relations and/or major black char-acters. Most notable was Lynn Nottages Ruined, GableStages harrowing tale of survival amid a brutal civil war in Afri-ca. With nine nominations, it tied with Maltz Jupiter Theatres The Music Man for the largest number of nominations for a single production. For those keeping box scores, the surviving tentpole companies racked up the largest number of nominations: Maltz Jupiter Theatre whose three big budget musicals accounted for most of its 23 nominations, Actors Playhouse whose musicals accounted for all their 12 nods, GableStage which scored 12 nominations with four its six plays in its 2012 season, and Palm Beach Drama-works whose 12 nominations resulted from three plays and one musical. Some nominations were bittersweet nods to companies tha t shutte red during the year: € Promethean Theatre of Davie took three nominations for Margaret M. Led-fords direction, Matt Coreys sound design and best supporting actor for Alex Alvarez from its final production nine months ago, The Unseen. € The Caldwell Theatre, which locked its doors in Boca Raton the same day as the Carbonell Awards last year, took four nominations for its acclaimed pen-ultimate production of the pop culture satire The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, earning mentions for production of a play, best actor for Brandon Mor-ris streetwise narrator, set and sound designs. € Mosaic Theatre of Plantation claimed three nods for its last produc-tion last month of The Birds, claiming nods for supporting actor for Kevin Reilley and sound design, plus scoring a nomination in the new play category for its world premiere commission of Joe Calarcos A Measure of Cruelty inspired by the Michael Brewer burning case. Work by smaller, newer companies making their bow last year received a share of the recognition: € Island City Stage, Andy Rogows reinvention of the defunct Rising Action company, got a best ensemble nod for its first offering, the two-actor multi-character The Twentieth Century Way. € Arts Garage in Delray Beach, the leaner brainchild of Florida Stages founder Louis Tyrell, gathered four nominations connected to its revival of the acidic Cabaret Verboten including best musical, best ensemble and best supporting actor for Wayne LeGette. € Plaza Theatre in Florida Stages old space in Manalapan was rewarded with best actor and actress nominations for John Archie and Harriet Oser in Driving Miss Daisy, its first foray into drama rather than the musical revues it mounted when it opened last year. € Kim Ehlys play about a young lesbian discovering her sexual orientation, Baby GirL, garnered a best new play slot for her fledgling Kutumba Theatre Project, and Terri Girvins one-woman show about her life as a bartender Last Call also took a new play berth for First Step Productions, although both felt like companies created just for those projects. € Small budgets were not a barrier: Naked Stages eerie The Turn of the Screw garnered recognition for Led-fords direction, Katherine Amadeos performance as the haunted governess and Ledfords lighting design. The shifting geographical concentration of theaters also was reflected in the numbers: 45 nominations in Palm Beach County compared to 43 last year, 42 in Miami-Dade County compared to 28 last year and 13 in Broward County compared to 27 last year. With the mov-ing of Womens Theatre Project from Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton and the closing of Mosaic, the figures will likely be even more lopsided next year. The Maltz Jupiter Theatre with its six-figure budgets dominated the musi-cals category once again with nine noms for The Music Man, eight for Hello, Dolly! and four for Cabaret. While the last was a carbon copy of previous productions, the others were notable for a freshness to their approach. This was especially evident in Matt Loehrs portrayal of Harold Hill without a shred evident of Robert Preston and Vickie Lewis creation of a Dolly Levi that owed nothing to Carol Channing, performances that earned nomina-tions for both. As always, the nominations create a few cases in which people are com-peting against themselves or have the chance to take home multiple awards: Margaret M. Ledford as director for The Unseen and The Turn of the Screw; Supporting Actor Alex Alvarez vs. Sup-porting Actor Alex Alvarez for the terri-fying guard in The Unseen and the sup-portive gay friend in The Motherf**ker With The Hat at GableStage; Matt Loehr with a nomination for the lead spot for The Music Man and an equally good shot for a supporting actor statue for Cornelius Hackl in Hello, Dolly!; two supporting actress nods but in dif-ferent categories for Angie Radosh for her pragmatic landlady in the Maltzs Cabaret and the alcoholic sister in Dramaworks A Delicate Balance; Lela Elam is up for her work in Ruined and Moscow; sound designer Matt Corey is competing against himself again in three shows: The Birds, The Unseen and A Steady Rain; Michael McKeever is nominated for the set design in I Am My Own Wife and as a playwright for best new work in Moscow, and Marcia Milgrom Dodge in nominated as both director and choreographer of Hello, Dolly! The Carbonells awarded in the spring reflect shows from the previous cal-endar year, not the season as most theaters define it. The process begins with a rotating panel of six nomina-tors seeing every production that meets the criteria and recommending whether there is at least a single aspect worthy of consideration. All of the shows that are recommended are seen by a panel of about a dozen judges. The judges develop a list of nominees and vote weeks later. Details of the process are at The awards were created in 1975 by the South Florida Entertainment Writ-ers Association Inc., comprised mostly by local theater critics, and dubbed the theater Circle Awards. As the number of theaters grew across the three coun-ties, the workload grew and the number of full-time critics seeing all the shows in the region shrank. The judging panel was expanded in 1992 to include theater professionals and knowledgeable civil-ians. The awards are named after the late sculptor Cuban-born and Miami resident Manuel Carbonell, who cre-ated the egg-shaped statuette for the critics` association in 1976.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOWine tasting terms — or, what it means to be malolacticWhen people enjoy wine together, they like to talk about what theyre drinking. Sometimes the descriptions are sensible and straightforward; other times, the verbiage drifts off into geek-speak. Descriptors usually concern the aroma (nose or bouquet), and the taste (or palate). Wines can be sweet, bitter, complex, simple or spicy, and its pretty clear what those are. But what about terms such as vegetal, tight or brawny? How about unctuous or grassy? Thats when it can be tough to determine if a wine is being praised or damned. We might want our mates to be lean, thin and/or foxy, but none of those conditions are good characteristics for wine. You might desire a hot relationship, but a hot wine will surely disappoint. Below are some common terms used to describe tastes and flavors associated with wine. You can use them without fear of being misunderstood or ridiculed. However, if you want to branch out, visit the Silly Tasting Note GeneratorŽ at Every time you refresh the page you get a fun new phrase you can use the next time you taste wines with friends. One of my favorites: Flourished but equally aggres-sive Sparkler. Opens with salad, lacking in character, prune juice and scant marma-lade. Drink now through never.Ž It sounds almost as authoritative as some comments Ive heard come from human lips.

Q Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE In 1971, Chef Bernard Uffer came to America, where he found his passion for the culi-nary industry. Originally from Bolivia, Chef Bernard attended Broward and Miami-Dade colleges, where he earned degrees in economics and marketing. He says that all of his life he was interested in restaurants, bars and discotheque which combined food with entertainment. It was in North Miami Beach, where he gained culinary experience with other professional chefs and worked at Maxs Grille. Then, Chef Ber-nard found his passion for being in the kitchen and later aspired to be a restaurateur. After meeting his wife, Lise, they moved to Montreal where they were exposed to some of the finest cuisine and talent. Bernard and Lise, also a chef, opened multiple fine dining restaurants that also incorporated entertain-ment. Upon returning to the states, Chef Bernard seized the opportunity to co-own Lolas Sea-food Eatery in Stuart with his partner, Charlie Paolino, in 2008. This concept takes less management and we have more control,Ž he says. It keeps the price down, the quality up, and then everybody is happy.Ž Focusing on convenience and quality, the seafood at Lolas is imported from New Bedford, Mass., sometimes twice a week. We dont use anything that is frozen here,Ž he says. Chef Bernard says all of his sauces, soups and desserts are made from scratch. Chef Bernard and his partner opened two more locations, in Palm Beach Gardens and Port St. Lucie. Known for its long neck clams, fried clams, and lobster rolls, Lolas is the place to go for a quick New England experience. What we have here is, great quality food, a good price, and a nice atmosphere,Ž says Chef Bernard. Name: Bernard Uffer Age: 58 Original hometown: Bolivia Restaurant: Lolas Seafood Ea tery, 4595 Northlake Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens Mission: Our mission is to serve quality food and have great customers.Ž Cuisine: Seafood Training: Chef Bernard has worked with many different professional chefs, which is where he gained culinary experience. He also worked at Maxs Grille as well as taught adult education cooking and child education cook-ing in Miami. What is your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear comfortable shoes, Reeboks and boat shoes!Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? I like ethnic foods. I cook chicken feet, kid-neys, liver, calves brains and burnt b utter „ I love it all!Ž What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a chef? First of all, you need to become a chef in order to make money. You have to have a passion for cook-ing because it is not a business that pays a lot of money. You have to be willing to go as high as a chef, because a chef doesnt just mean cooking, it means managing a kitchen and being able to fix problems within the kitchen. Its a long and hard process, but you have to power through it and stick with it.Ž Q In the kitchen with...CHEF BERNARD Lola’s Seafood Eatery BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Downtown West Palm Beach has gained three new restaurants in the past month.

Rodney Mayos Hullabaloo at 517 Clematis St. has been described as a gastropub with an Italian flair.Ž Chef Fritz Cassel (formerly of Gratify) heads up the kitchen, which serves locally sourced food prepared in a wood-burning oven. In addition to charcuterie. signature dishes and chalkboard specials include roast pork and porcini risotto, gnocchi with spinach and squash, zucchini chips, house-made ricotta ravioli in duck confit au jus, and double yoke farm eggs with gruyere cheese, heirloom tomatoes and toast points. Hullabaloo also has a late-night menu and boasts a large list of beer, wine and cocktails named after music legends. The 1,700-square-foot restaurant resembles a New York-style loft, illu-minated with candles and ambient lighting, paired with leather booths and furniture from another time. Outdoors, there also is sidewalk caf seating and a back patio with a vin-tage Airstream trailer that it shares with LongBoards, another of Mr. Mayos restaurants. Call 833-1033. The iconic Hamburger Heaven, in Palm Beach since 1947, moved to a 4,445-square-foot space at 1 N. Clem-atis St. that once was home to Mr. Mayos comfort-food haven, America. The menu has updates too, with the addition of a Dog LoversŽ list for the outdoor patio, extra vegetarian choices and drinks from a full liquor bar. New signature items and old favorites include proprietary grind, top-choice chuck burgers; sweet red pepper relish; eggs and omelets; and Thanksgiving-style dinner every Thursday night. A dessert bar serves mile-high homemade cakes, hand-spun milkshakes and slices of pie from its diner-style, arched counter.
