Ms. Liebovitz, as you know, is the celebrated 63-year-old photographer of stars and products such as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, the Whoopi Goldbergs and the Demi Moores, the George Clooneys and Lance Armstrongs and Johnny Depps, or (most recently) the Stella Artois beers. First fact: she has placed her ivy-covered home and studio up for sale. Any of us can have it, dominating a comfortable corner in ManhattanÂs Greenwich Village, a New York City neighborhood, merely by laying down $33 million. Second, Ms. Liebovitz recently sold 37 photographs of the famous or almost famous to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. Any of us can see them merely by driving there post haste, whether we have to travel from the next town over or the next coast over Â„ from Palm Beach Gardens or Port Charlotte. To that sale she added two more images as gifts, bringing to 39 the number now on display at the Norton through June 9. And third, two Florida Weekly colleagues joined Ms. Liebovitz last month to talk about her art. One of them, a friend of mine, told me that Ms. Liebovitz hit the mark in a George W. Bush photo she once made Â„ Mr. Bush with his family, or perhaps with his first-term cabinet, including Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condo-leezza Rice and Colin Powell. ÂShe said regardless of where you fall on the political divide, everyone loved this picture, because they saw in it what they projected onto it,ÂŽ my friend noted. She has experienced such a phenomenon herself, with one uncharacteristic exception: not everybody always loves what she writes. Holding a mirror up to nature, after all, can sometimes show you something you might not want to see. My friend may feel that critical reactions to some stories are also the result of the Liebovitz principle: Observers take from art what they bring to it. They see what they want to see. ÂWhen you read (a good) story,ÂŽ she explained to me, ÂyouÂre really having a conversation with yourself. You take away whatever you project onto it.ÂŽ Just as when you view the portrait of Bush and company. ItÂs a contemporary notion, at least put that way, but it has its antecedents in clas-sical western philosophy. The old idea of art is this: to be good, it must entertain and educate. Coincidentally, its witnesses may come to understand something they already know Â„ they see it revealed. Then they can say, So thatÂs love (ShakespeareÂs Sonnet 114). So thatÂs evil (Rob-ert HilliardÂs novel, ÂPhillipaÂŽ). So thatÂs despair (Joan DidionÂs memoir, ÂBlue NightsÂŽ). All thatÂs a little different than merely seeing what you want to see. And it doesnÂt mean the thing seen has to be beautiful, either. That is, unless you think of beauty the way Thomas Aquinas did, not merely as pretty, but as Âid quod visum placet.ÂŽ Beauty is that which, when seen, pleases. Taken that way Â„ taken as objects that carry no moral imperative Â„ Ms. Liebo-vitzÂs photos are beautiful, if empty. Many of her Norton subjects sit at the center of the universe working on their fame-tans in the bright rays of her camera Â„ Mikhail Baryshnikov and Mark Morris. Tom Cruise, Andy Warhol, and Leonardo DiCaprio with a swan curled around his neck. Even the pre-diet Rev. Al Sharpton, enthroned in the PrimaDonna Beauty Care Center in Brook-lyn with a hairdryer riding his head like a royal space helmet. Beautiful all, and sometimes disturbing Â„ though not as disturbing as her most famous photo, the Rolling Stone Magazine shot of a tastefully naked John Lennon lying on his side to embrace the reclining, fully-clothed Yoko Ono. Ms. Liebovitz took that one on the afternoon of Dec. 8, 1980. Ms. Ono wore black for the shot, and the result reflected the photographerÂs ability to create confec-tions that appeal like narcotics to an Amer-ican palate addicted to carnival stardom. In no other entertainment photo does the glitter of fame become so deeply and permanently enshrined by the concrete of sudden martyrdom. Only a few hours later, John Lennon walked out of his apartment on the west side of Central Park to be shot and killed by a carnival stardom addict. What all of that does for Ms. Liebovitz Â„ who is now, in the tradition of Andy Warhol, as famous as her subjects Â„ is cre-ate great wealth, apparently. It doesnÂt hurt that what we know of her is exotic, as well. She always wears black. She was the longtime lover and partner (she has said) of the late razor-tongued critic and writer, Susan Sontag. She can actually get her subjects to do these things willingly: lay in a bath of milk (Whoopi Goldberg) or let her shoot what she sees when she catches them sitting in a womenÂs beauty parlor (Al Sharpton). More impressively to me, she can obscure the line between art that aims to reveal whatÂs real or true, and art that uses the techniques and artistry of such revelation Â„ in painting, writing or photography, for example Â„ to make you reach into your wallet and produce a lot of real cash, and never mind any other realities.Beer commercials. Beauty-product commercials. Clothing commercials. The truth of that artistry is economic. Do people who sit around drinking Stella Artois really look or behave like the models in Ms. LiebovitzÂs ÂStella Artois Timeless Beauty CampaignÂŽ shoot Â„ the perfect woman perched invit-ingly atop the perfect manÂs piano in a world without fear or flaw? Is that art? Is that even honorable? What would an old rocker like Neil Young, the con-science of Ms. LiebovitzÂs generation, say? HeÂd say this, and did: ÂAinÂt singinÂ for Pepsi/AinÂt singinÂ for CokeÂƒ AinÂt singinÂ for Miller/ AinÂt singinÂ for BudÂƒ I got the real thing, babyÂƒ.ÂŽ I wanted the real thing, too, so I walked into (not the Norton) a bar and ordered a glass of Stella the other day. When I looked in the mirror behind a wall of bottles, some old bald fool was looking back with a big carnival grin on his face. It was sobering, I tell you.

The Gang of Eight on immigration is here to tell us that we have succeeded in not enforcing the law so persistently and thoroughly that now we have to give up all pretense. The Gang of Eight, headlined by conservative star Marco Rubio, wants to amnesty the 11 million immigrants who are already here as a product of past nonenforcement in exchange for a promise of future enforcement. Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform resolutely refuse to say the word Âamnesty.ÂŽ They contend that the proposed package is not an amnesty because illegal immigrants have to go to the back of the line for a green card. But before that happens, they get Âpro-bationary legal status.ÂŽ As a practical matter, this is the amnesty. Sen. Chuck Schumer states it with admirable clarity: ÂOn Day One of our bill, the people without status (i.e., ille-gal immigrants) who are not criminals or security risks will be able to live and work here legally.ÂŽ You canÂt get more direct than that. Once an illegal immigrant gets Âprobationary legal status,ÂŽ he has jumped irrevocably ahead of all those poor saps back in their native countries who want to come to the U.S. but for whatever rea-son were unwilling or unable to break our immigration laws to do it. All indications are that this kind of ÂprobationaryÂŽ legal status matters more to illegal immigrants than an even-tual path to citizenship. In an essay in the journal National Affairs, immigra-tion expert Peter Skerry points out that 20 years after the implementation of the 1986 amnesty, only 41 percent of the 2.7 million people who got legal sta-tus under the program had gone on to become citizens. The GangÂs enforcement ÂtriggersÂŽ affect only the path to citizenship. In principle, the enforcement provisions Â„ requiring use of the E-Verify system for employers and establishing a system to monitor entries and exits from the country Â„ are worthwhile. But only a naif would have much confidence in their timely and effective implementa-tion. As Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies points out, Con-gress has already required the comple-tion of an entry-exit system six times. To no avail. It passed a law in 2006 call-ing for the completion of a double-layer border fence. Also, to no avail. WeÂve been here before, with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Rubio calls the 1986 law a Âblanket amnesty,ÂŽ even though, on his terms, it wasnÂt unconditional or immediate. To apply for legal status, illegal immigrants had to pay a fee and prove that they had good moral character. If approved Â„ and not everyone was Â„ they had to wait 18 months before applying for a green card. All of this was coupled with fearsome-sounding enforcement provisions to beef up security at the border and crack down on employers hiring illegal workers. In other words, in broad brush, the Âblanket amnestyÂŽ of 1986 is indis-tinguishable from the bipartisan prin-ciples of 2013. Since the enforcement never happened, the 1986 law stands as a monument to bad faith. Washington may be about to build another one. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Brennan and Kiriakou, drones and tortureJohn Brennan and John Kiriakou worked together years ago, but their careers have dramatically diverged. Brennan is now on track to head the CIA, while Kiriakou is headed off to prison. Each of their fates is tied to the so-called war on terror, which under President George W. Bush provoked worldwide condemnation. President Barack Obama rebranded the war on terror innocuously as Âover seas contingency operations,ÂŽ but, rather than retrench from the odious practices of his predecessor, Obama instead esca-lated. His promotion of Brennan, and his prosecution of Kiriakou, demon-strate how the recent excesses of U.S. presidential power are not transient aberrations, but the creation of a fright-ening new normal, where drone strikes, warrantless surveillance, assassination and indefinite detention are conducted with arrogance and impunity, shielded by secrecy and beyond the reach of law. John Kiriakou spent 14 years at the CIA as an analyst and a case officer. In 2002, he led the team that found Abu Zubaydah, alleged to be a high-ranking member of al-Qaida. Kiriakou was the first to publicly confirm the use of waterboarding by the CIA, in a 2007 interview with ABCÂs Brian Ross. He told Ross: ÂAt the time, I felt that water-boarding was something that we needed to do. ... I think IÂve changed my mind, and I think that waterboarding is prob-ably something that we shouldnÂt be in the business of doing.ÂŽ Kiriakou says he found the Âenhanced interrogation techniquesÂŽ immoral, and declined to be trained to use them. Since the interview, it has become known that Zubaydah was waterboard-ed at least 83 times, and that he pro-vided no useful information as a result. He remains imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, without charge. Kiriakou will soon start serving his 30-month prison sen-tence, but not for disclosing anything about waterboarding. He pled guilty to disclosing the name of a former CIA interrogator to a journalist, with infor-mation that the interrogator himself had posted to a publicly available website. Meanwhile, John Brennan, longtime counterterrorism advisor to Obama, is expected to receive Senate confirma-tion as the new director of central intel-ligence. I recently asked Kiriakou what he thought of Brennan: ÂIÂve known John Brennan since 1990. I worked directly for John Brennan twice. I think that he is a terrible choice to lead the CIA. I think that itÂs time for the CIA to move beyond the ugliness of the post-September 11th regime, and we need someone who is going to respect the Constitution and to not be bogged down by a legacy of torture. I think that President ObamaÂs appointment of John Brennan sends the wrong message to all Americans.ÂŽ Obama has once already considered Brennan for the top CIA job, back in 2008. Brennan withdrew his nomination then under a hail of criticism for sup-porting the Bush-era torture policies in his various top-level intelligence posi-tions, including head of the National Counterterrorism Center. What a difference four years makes. With the killing of Osama bin Laden notched in his belt, Obama seems immune from counterterror criticism. John Brennan is said to manage the noto-rious Âkill listÂŽ of people that Obama believes he has the right to kill any-time, anywhere on the planet, as part of his Âover seas contingency operations.ÂŽ This includes the killing of U.S. citizens, without any charge, trial or due process whatsoever. Drone strikes are one way these assassinations are carried out. U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen by a drone strike, then, two weeks later, his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, was killed the same way. I asked Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005, what he thought of Brennan. He told me: ÂWhatÂs happening with drone strikes around the world right now is, in my opinion, as bad a development as many of the things we now condemn so read-ily, with 20/20 hindsight, in the George W. Bush administration. We are creating more enemies than weÂre killing. We are doing things that violate international law. We are even killing American citi-zens without due process and have an attorney general who has said that due process does not necessarily include the legal process. Those are really scary words.ÂŽ While Kiriakou goes to prison for revealing a name, the U.K.-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism is launching a project called ÂNaming the Dead,ÂŽ hoping Âto identify as many as pos-sible of those killed in U.S. covert drone strikes in Pakistan, whether civilian or militant.ÂŽ The BIJ reports a Âminimum 2,629 people who appear to have so far died in CIA drone strikes in Pakistan.ÂŽ John Brennan should be asked about each of them.

MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickDisaster preparedness is so easy to let slide. We get all worked up after something like Hurricane Sandy and decide itÂs time to Âdo something.ÂŽ We read up, we make plans, we stock up, we move on. And then, we forget. We take the can opener out of the emergency kit and donÂt replace it. We use the food and water weÂve stored, but we donÂt buy anything new to rotate into the disaster supplies. We mean to, of course. And yes, weÂll get to it ... next month. The good news is that in recent years, disaster experts have pushed people to pre-pare for their pets as well Â„ a 180-degree change in attitude, driven by the risks people have taken with their own lives to protect their pets when disasters strike. And public planning for disaster relief includes temporary housing for pets. The bad news? Most people arenÂt as ready. But itÂs not hard to start, and step one is checking your petÂs ID. Most animals will survive a disaster, but many never see their families again because thereÂs no way to determine which pet belongs to which family if pets and peo-ple get separated. ThatÂs why dogs and cats should always wear updated identification tags, and preferably be microchipped, too. Take some clear, sharp pictures of your pet as well, to help with any search. What next? Get a big storage bin with a lid and handles to prepare a disaster kit for your pet. Then itÂs time to shop. Keep several daysÂ worth of drinking water and pet food as well as any necessary medicines, rotat-ing the stock regularly. For canned goods, donÂt forget to pack a can opener and a spoon. Lay in a supply of empty plastic bags, along with paper towels, both for cleaning up messes and for sealing them away until they can be safely tossed. For cats, pack a bag of litter and some dispos-able litter trays. Hard-sided crates and carriers are among the most important items to have on hand. Sturdy crates keep pets of all kinds safe while increasing their housing options. Crated pets may be allowed in hotel rooms that are normally off-limits to pets, or can be left in a pinch with veterinarians or shelters that are already full, since the animals come with rooms of their own. Leashes for dogs and harnesses and leashes for cats are important, too, because frightened animals can be difficult to con-trol. Pack a soft muzzle for each pet to keep everyone safe if a frightened or injured pet starts lashing out in fear or self-defense. And finally, put a first-aid kit in the bin, along with a book on how to treat pet injuries. Make a note on the calendar to check on supplies and rotate food and water a couple of times a year. You may never have to pull out your disaster kit, but itÂs always good to be prepared. For more guide-lines, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has tips for pet owners at Ready.gov/animals.

Kids under age 12 fight each other without regard to gender, and blows above the collar-bone are always prohibited (along with attacks on the groin, kidneys and back). ÂCrazyÂŽ was described delivering mer-ciless forearm chest smashes to a foe before the referee intervened, and the Black Widow won her match in less than a minute via arm-bar submission. Paren-tal involvement appears to be of two types: either fear of their childÂs getting hurt or encouragement to be meaner. Q The continuing crisisQ Breaking Bad (and Quickly!): Tyrone Harris, 26, reported for his first shift at DunkinÂ Donuts in Morristown, N.J., in January and received his name tag. Seven minutes later, according to police, he was on his way out the door with $2,100 from his supervisorÂs desk. (Apparently, the supervisor had opened his drawer a little too far when reaching for the name tag, giving Mr. Harris a glimpse of the cash.) Q In a January submission to IndiaÂs Supreme Court, an association of the countryÂs caste councils begged for greater sympathy for men who commit Âhonor killingsÂŽ of wayward females. The councils denied encouraging such killings, but emphasized that fathers or brothers who murder a daughter or sister are usually Âlaw-abiding, educated and respectable peopleÂŽ who must protect their reputations after a female has had a ÂforbiddenÂŽ relationship Â„ especially a female who intends to marry within her sub-caste, which the councils believe leads to deformed babies. Q Aubrey Ireland, 21, a deanÂs-list senior at the University of CincinnatiÂs prestigious college of music, went to court in December to protect herself from two stalkers Â„ her mother and father, who, she said, had been paranoiacally meddling in her life. David and Julie Ireland put tracking devices on AubreyÂs computer and telephone and showed up unannounced on campus (600 miles from their home), telling officials that Aubrey was promiscuous and mental-ly imbalanced. A Common Pleas Court judge ordered the parents to keep their distance. Q Video transmissions from drone aircraft rose stiflingly to more than 300,000 hours last year (compared to 4,800 in 2001). With input expected to grow even more, Air Force officials acknowledged in December seeking advice from a pri-vate-sector company experienced in han-dling massive amounts of video: ESPN. Q Dog trainer Mark Vette showed off his best work in Auckland, New Zealand, in December: dogs driving a Cooper Mini on a closed course. Using knobs fitted to the dogsÂ reach, Vette taught mixed-breed rescue dogs Monty and Porter 10 discrete actions, includ-ing handling the starter, steering wheel, gearshift, and brake and gas pedals, and then put them behind the wheel on live television. Monty handled the straight-away flawlessly, but Porter, assigned to steer around a bend, ran off the road. Q Bright ideasQ In November, students at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, ordered three therapy dogs and set up a room for Âsuper stressedÂŽ final-exam studiers. The dogs typically are loaned to hospital patients and senior citizens. Q In December, Cornell University staff installed a patch of grass inside the Olin Library (trucked in from the Adirondack mountains) because, said an employee, the sight of it has a Âcognitive relaxing effect.ÂŽ Q Jorge Sanchez, 35, was arrested in Burbank, Calif., in February after walking into a Costco store, brazenly stuffing 24 quart cans of motor oil under his cloth-ing (some affixed with bungee cords), and heading for the exit. A security guard noticed him, but Mr. Sanchez fled and actually outran the guard (though some of his cargo came loose). Still carrying 15 cans, he made it eight blocks before police overtook him. Mr. Sanchez said he services cars part-time and that motor oil prices were just too high. Q PerspectiveThe issue of Âbackground checksÂŽ for gun purchases occupies center stage in the current gun-regulation debate, even though, ironically, current federal law on such checks is apparently half-heartedly enforced. In the latest data available (from 2010), nearly 80,000 Americans were denied the right to purchase guns because their applications contained false information (even though appli-cants swear, under penalty of law, that all information is true). However, The New York Times reported in January that of the nearly 80,000 applicants, only 44 were prosecuted for lying, and federal officials said the practice, well-known among applicants with shaky backgrounds, is known as Âlie and try.ÂŽ Q Undignified deathsQ After a 51-year-old man was found dead in Everett, Wash., in January with his heavier girlfriend (192 pounds) lying face down on top of him, sheriffÂs depu-ties attributed cause of death as his hav-ing been smothered by the 50-year-old womanÂs breasts. Neighbors said they had heard the man screaming for the woman to get off of him. Q In January, New York City police, arriving to check out an altercation and a death on the tracks at the East 125th Street subway station, found that the two incidents were unrelated. The man who was killed had actually fallen off of a train near the station while he was squatting between cars, defecating. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYwhich were discovered in an old suit-case in the attic of her grandsonÂs home in Fort Myers. And though more than a century and a quarter have passed since the letters were written, they reveal the universal-ity of love and romance, and hope for a future together. But before the two met, George, 33, was a widower. His wife, Missouri, had died in 1886 after years of ill health, exacerbated by the measles, leaving him with a 6-year-old daughter, Iva Pearl. He had been born on an Ohio farm to parents whose families already had spent nearly a century in the New World. He was on his way to becoming the owner of a prosperous leather fit-tings factory. Sallie was 26 and was stitching her way toward spinsterhood in the Cin-cinnati neighborhood of Cumminsville. Most girls of her day had long been married, but here she was, still living with her parents, who had immigrated to America the decade before her birth, her mother coming from Northern Ire-land, her father from the Netherlands. Her sewing sang with precision, as did her passion.~y~ÂAfter while, when I do not have to cut and baste, drape and fit ... I can devote all my time to those I love Â„ or shall I say to him that I love.ÂŽ~y~The prospect of marriage delighted her.~y~ÂJust think how differently we will both be situated two weeks from tonight, if nothing prevents,ÂŽ she wrote on Aug. 4, 1887. ÂMamma is still in excellent spirits and I only hope (that) will continue until after that time, and then we will be beyond her hearing at least. Now I donÂt want that to sound mean. I got a letter from brother John this evening telling me that if I had no objections, he would like to attend our wedding, and he was kind enough to set the day for 22nd of Sept. I thank him kindly for it, but I will not take his good advice.ÂŽ~y~They were married Aug. 18 instead.It was the Victorian Age, and apparently Mamma was not sure whether she approved of the match. After all, George was a few years older than Sallie and had been married before. Sallie pressed on.~y~ÂI chose the wonderful dress today and am glad that is off my mind. I have about a thousand things to say to you but cannot put them on paper. Well with just loads of love I will close and hoping to see you very, very soon. I am ever yours. Lovingly, Sallie.ÂŽ~y~George wrote that he loved his parents, his daughter and his siblings. For Sallie he felt Âa different kind of impulse, a different throb of the heart when you are to be considered. Yet I think that I love my child and my par-ents as dearly as one can love children and parents. ÂBut as I say when your name comes in question there is an inspiration of love impossible for me to describe to you.ÂŽ That love may have been impossible to describe, but here is what we know about the couple. They lived in Cincinnati and began a family of their own. Henry Adrian was the first son, then Martha and finally Jim. By that point they were living in Williamsburg, on the outskirts of Cincin-nati. According to the book, ÂIndiana: One Hundred And Fifty Years of Ameri-can Development,ÂŽ published in 1931, George initially taught school during the winter and worked the family farm in the spring and summer. In the 1890s, he founded a business that cut leather strips for buggies. The business began to outpace the railroad available in Williamsburg, and George moved his business and his family to Connersville, Ind., 70 miles or so from where he had grown up, and closer to the burgeoning automobile industry that was springing up across the Midwest. The George R. Carter Co. made trimmings for automobiles, and son-in-law Joel Denham BolenderÂs invention of flexible automotive trims brought the family additional business. But that prosperity did not dim the playful affection that George had for Sallie. A postcard photo of George and Sallie, taken around 1910, shows the couple lounging on the lawn of their home in Connersville. The caption reads:~y~ÂSallie fell downhill and lodged on GeorgeÂs knee. TheyÂd be there still only for the camera. It captured them on the spot, so this picture we got.ÂŽ~y~That image, which George addressed to his mother, Anna, always was met by family mem-bers with a wink, a nod or a smile. But the letters came as a surprise to the family when they were plucked from the attic in the early Â70s as central air conditioning was being installed. Who knew passion lurked in the hearts of these very serious people? As George wrote on March 28, 1887:~y~ÂIt was so nice of you to go into the hall to give me that kiss. You do not know how much I appreciated that then. After you got through all your fun, you again bade me good night. You may not have thought of doing anything to especially please me but you did.ÂŽ ~y~The Carters were active in their church, and were known for their civic involvement. George died unexpectedly in 1922, when the eldest of his grandchildren were still young. But he was much loved by his employees, many of whom continued to work for the family long after George R. Carter Co. was sold. And Sallie, who lived until 1937, was remembered as a strapping lady who was 6 feet tall and fairly imperious. Family movies from the 1920s and Â30s show her strolling with her sisters and grandchildren in Florida, in Clearwater, and in Indiana, much as a dowager empress would with her court. That is how their story ended, but their tale is timeless. Perhaps George said it best:~y~Now Darling, I will bring this to a close hoping to see you soon and to have a nice long pleasant chat with you mixed with much !!!! Love. And now with much Love and Affection, I am yours sincerely, Geo. R. Carter~y~Here are additional excerpts from the letters between Sallie Ringold and George R. Carter.ÂI have been thinking a great deal about the flowers we were examining last night and thought if our lives were shown up as the glass magnified those flowers how would it be do you suppose, do you suppose all would be as beautiful as were LETTERSFrom page 1 e n y our COURTESY PHOTOS1.

Carter, June 4, 1887~y~ÂI look forward to the prospect of a pleasant home with a noble wife to enjoy it with me with the anticipation of such pleasure that my life is constantly animated with joy. Can it be any wonder that I sometimes feel that were I to lose you that the prospects of my life would be as a blight.ÂŽÂ„ George R. Carter, June 30, 1887~y~ÂI hardly know what to write this morning for some way I feel so much like explaining myself in terms of love and devotion to you and you laughed at me last night for being so spoony, so you see I would not dare write a spoony letter yet I am at a loss when I am writing to you to know what else to write but love.ÂŽÂ„ George R. Carter, July 6, 1887~y~ÂI want to do all in my power to right every little wrong or unpleasantness than should ever occur between us, for my dearest wish is for our happiness together.ÂŽÂ„ George R. Carter, July 24, 1887~y~ÂIf you are too tired when you get home, or if you have any other reason for not wanting to go buggy riding, do not arrange to do so. I will not be one bit disappointed.

ÂTeachers can teach, but they donÂt have brushes and paint.ÂŽ The concept is simple.In the Youth Art Competition, local public and private schools, grades K-12, are invited to create art works and compete for $2,600 in savings bonds and $4,550 worth of ArtiBucks for their schoolÂs art department. The works of about 100 finalists in this countywide competition will be on display at Arti-Gras. Money raised by ArtiGras also pays for scholarships for aspiring artists. The Quantum House benefits from proceeds in the Tiny Treasures tent, where children ages 3-13 can enter an exclusive Âkids onlyÂŽ gallery to buy works donated by the exhibiting artists. Children and their families also can meet the artists on site. Most art is priced between $5 and $20. In addition to the direct financial benefit, many area non-profits also gain exposure through the show. ÂWe have nonprofit groups that staff our gates and theyÂre responsible for taking tickets. They wear their shirts to promote their nonprofits,ÂŽ Ms. Sosa says. Selected charities also get to have a booth. ÂWe are considered the charity of the day on Monday,ÂŽ said Jennifer Sardone-Shiner, director of marketing at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. ÂItÂs more than a partnership. ItÂs nice to be acknowledged as the charity of the day, but in addition, ArtiGras also supports visual arts, such as the set design for our spring musical,ÂŽ she said. That musical, ÂOklahoma!,ÂŽ is set for May 17-18. The Paul & Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts is the educa-tion arm of the theater, and a portion of the proceeds from the tickets it sells in its box office benefits the conservatory. ÂThe last two years we actually sold out of the advance tickets. ItÂs not just about the money. It brings a range of people into the theater. ItÂs a nice brand-ing identity campaign that brings two non-profits together in the community,ÂŽ Ms. Sardone said. The juried art show has been ranked one of the top 50 art shows in the United States. It attracts more than 280 fine artists from around the nation. The three-day event also offers interactive art exhibits, live music and dem-onstrations.

A12 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIrish community comes together to help one of its own BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@Â” oridaweekly.comSome of South FloridaÂs finest Irish entertainers are coming together in a night of music and humor to benefit a woman who has been undergoing che-motherapy for breast cancer. Comedian Brendan Grace, with special guests, singer/artist Hugh OÂNeill, singer Tracy Sands, Hilary OÂLeary, musician Keith Aherne and The KillBil-lies will perform a concert at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 at Jupiter High School, to benefit Cathleen Kelleher. ÂItÂs going to be a great evening. IÂm certainly going to be as funny as I can. IÂve done some shows in Florida in the past and the humor has always been very well received,ÂŽ Mr. Grace said by phone from Ireland. The comedian, who has a home in Jupiter, will no doubt mix humor and music. ÂWith so many good singers on this particular show, I will be concentrating principally on comedy, but I will probably throw in a couple of songs and see how they work out,ÂŽ he said. He said he seldom has trouble finding ways to keep audi-ences laughing. ÂIÂve found that Irish humor and American humor, if theyÂre delivered properly, will work well on both sides of the Atlantic. An awful lot of people of people have the misconception that Americans speak English. They actually donÂt. They speak American,ÂŽ he said. ÂThereÂs a difference between Americanisms and English.ÂŽ Really?ÂIf you just take a vehicle as one example. There are 28 things on the average automobile that have a different name on this side of the Atlantic and that side. And if you use one of these as a tag line to a gag, itÂs gone,ÂŽ he said, citing the bonnet and the boot, as opposed to the hood and the trunk of a car. ÂIÂve learned them all and man-aged not to fall into the trap. These are very impor-tant things when it comes to doing com-edy,ÂŽ he said. ÂWhen you speak about the windscreen, people can say, do you mean the windshield? But if youÂre doing com-edy, you donÂt get that second chance. I might sound like a smart ass but IÂve studied it.ÂŽ One person he is hoping will get a second chance is Ms. Kelleher, who has not been able to keep a regular work sched-ule because of her cancer treatments. ÂCathleen is from the lovely city in Ireland of Cork, where they have a brogue and actually sing their words. She is a real Cork woman and IÂve known her for 20 years. SheÂs a great, strong person,ÂŽ he said. Mr. Grace said his grateful the community is coming together, citing The Bistro, plus Paddy MacÂs and OÂSheaÂs Pub, which are helping out with food and drink for the festivities. ÂThere is a great connection with the Irish people and drink. Some drink in small portions, but we drink a lot. ThereÂs going to be great camaraderie with this,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs a lovely list. It really will be a beautiful evening. It will be St. PatÂs ahead of time.ÂŽ It might be better even than your usual bit of Irish entertainment. ÂSt. PatrickÂs Day, wherever you go youÂre not going to get a lineup of such quality performers,ÂŽ he said. Mr. Grace should know. ÂMy humor is based on vaudeville and itÂs been working fine with me in Ireland for 40 years. My fingers are crossed. I would almost guarantee thatÂs going to be a great evening.ÂŽ Q What: A Night of Irish Comedy, featuring Brendan Grace with Hugh OÂ’Neill, Tracy Sands, Hilary OÂ’Leary, musician Keith Aherne and The Killbillies.When: 6:30 p.m. Feb. 17 Where: Jupiter High School, 500 Military Trail, Jupiter.

A14 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYHopes Dreams and Horses offers equine therapy BY MARILYN BAUERmbauer@Â” oridaweekly.comSneaky Pete has only been around a few months. A ÂminiatureÂŽ with blond hair and big brown eyes, he is in the process of learning man-ners. The other 15 horses at Hopes Dreams and Horses (HDH) are ther-apy animals, boarders or rescues waiting for new homes. The 20-acre Jupiter therapeutic center has been offering Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and thera-peutic riding since its founding by Sue Copeland in 1998. Hundreds of children and adults have taken part in programs designed to heal any number of anxiety disorders and help in building muscles and confi-dence. ÂWe have had girl scout groups out to earn badges, senior citizens for help with mobility and young chil-dren who have problems speaking,ÂŽ said Ms. Copeland. The organization was set to introduce a new program, Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) in conjunction with a mental health professional. Ms. Copeland said the hope was to work with at-risk kids from the Children of Purpose Chris-tian Academy in West Palm Beach. All this programing requires funding; something the center is short on. Although costs are low (starting at $25 for a half hour group lesson) and many of the children who use the center are on scholarship, HDH has never broken even. ÂWe are operating on a shoestring,ÂŽ said Ms. Copeland. Ms. Copeland created HDH when she suffered a degenerative back problem and was scheduled for sur-gery. ÂI had just bought my dream horse, a thoroughbred named Wilbur,ÂŽ she remembered. ÂI asked my doctor if I could ride and he told me to let pain be my guide. I rode Wilbur and never had to have surgery.ÂŽ Ms. Copeland immediately began researching equine therapy and worked with several local groups to round out her understanding. Ms. Copeland and Program Direc-tor Carly Brown, are both certified equine professionals. According to Ms. Brown, therapeutic riding dat es back to 1952 w hen German doctors reported benefits to patients with orthopedic problems such as scoliosis. ÂThe movement of a horse walking mimics the gait of a human,ÂŽ said Ms. Brown. ÂThis stimulates the rider both physically and cogni-tively. The ability to control a horse, as well as oneÂs own body inspires self confidence, responsibility and teamwork.ÂŽ Therapeutic riding also aids in balance, muscle control, motor development and coordination. Patients whose motor skills have been impaired have the chance to experience freedom of movement, which in turn builds positive feel-ings of self-worth. ÂPeople paired up with a horse build a relationship with the ani-mal,ÂŽ said Ms. Brown. ÂBecause horses mimic human emotion, they are able to work on boundaries and respect. This type of therapy has proved very effective with Military Sexual Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.ÂŽ While EAL is mainly conducted on the ground with exercises created to develop emotional and social skill sets, ETA takes the exercises one step farther through analysis of the process. This is all in addition to the simple benefits of recreation. The youngest children to visit and work with HDH have been 4 years-old but with the hoped-for addition of a physical therapist, the center will be able to bring in children as young as 2 years. ÂItÂs really good for early development and for kids with problems walking or suffering from Cerebral PalsyÂŽ said Ms. Brown. ÂFor other kids it is strength training to devel-op muscle and for some it even strengthens the respiratory system.ÂŽ HDH is looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of kidsÂ lessons and for equine tack donations. They also need volunteers. For more information, contact Ms. Copeland at 262-3038 or visit the website at www.hopesdreamsand-horses.org. Q See photos from a recent fundraiser on page B16.

Q Community Foundation will match education pledges to donorschoose.org SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Community Foundation has invested in DonorsChoose.org to support teach-ers and their special classroom projects in Palm Beach and Martin counties. The Community Foundation wants to make the learning experience in classrooms a whole lot better, and theyÂre seeking the support of the community to help double their impact, the foundation said in a pre-pared statement. The Community Foundation will match every dollar donated in any amount that supports a Palm Beach or Martin county classroom project featured on DonorsChoose.org, up to $70,000. The match opportunity expires in January 2014 or until the total match dollars are met, whichever comes first.

DonorsChoose.org engages the community in the public school system by providing a simple and personal way to help teachers. A variety of classroom projects featured on the website describe the goals of the projects and the materials needed. When classroom projects reach their funding goal, DonorsChoose.org ships the project materials directly to the classroom. There are currently 70 class-room projects in Palm Beach and Mar-tin counties that need funding, however, more teachers add new projects every day, the foundation said in the statement.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Lost that loving feeling? Try making a grand gesture on ValentineÂ’s DayMatt walked determinedly into the Hallmark store, planning to buy Vivian the splashiest valentineÂs card in the display. But if truth be told, he really wasnÂt into it. With the way things had been going lately with his wife, the last thing he was inspired to do was choose something sentimental. He couldnÂt pinpoint how long heÂd been feeling this apathetic and resentful. In recent times, it seemed as if Vivian was always annoyed at him. She would criticize him for the smallest things, and would dismiss his attempts to explain. To add insult to injury, she would constantly accuse him of not caring enough about her feelings. Whenever he did make an effort to please her, it seemed like he got it all wrong. Lately, it felt like the two of them were going through the motions. So, he probably had stopped making the effort. What was the point? There was a time his heart had stopped still at the mere mention of VivianÂs name. TheyÂd had a whirlwind romance. And, the early years of their marriage had been an intimate dream. But somewhere over time the feelings had shifted. Matt actually missed the earliest, romantic days, when they could finish each otherÂs sentences. When they laughed if one of them messed up, instead of arguing. He remembered the days he would read each of the valentineÂs carefully, determined to find that one special card that could truly describe the depths of his emotions. Now, it was such a struggle to put his feelings into words.There have been times when most of us havenÂt been satisfied with the state of our romantic lives. In these instanc-es, ValentineÂs Day may become an offensive, and often painful, reminder of everything lacking. Lonely singles will often curse the day that accentu-ates their frustrations. They will under-standably count the hours until Febru-ary 15th. Those who have lost a partner may acutely feel the pain of their loss. And, sometimes, the loneliest of all are those of us in faltering or conflicted committed relationships. ItÂs hard not to feel cheated and resentful on a day thatÂs designated for happy, in-sync sweet-hearts. If we are feeling hurt or angry, it may be difficult to sincerely celebrate a day dedicated to romance. The loving feelings we once felt so strongly may have been occluded by hurt, sadness and resentment. We may feel pressured to express loving sentiments to our partners, when in fact, weÂre no longer certain about how we feel. Many of us are not careful enough about the way we express our disap-pointments. We may read way too much into what our partners do, or donÂt do. We may misinterpret these gestures as definitive statements about how much we mean to them, or how committed they are to the relationship. We may get huffy or become defensive, because somehow we donÂt get the sense they put in enough effort. Many of us are so busy focusing on how weÂve been wronged we miss an opportunity to own up to how weÂve let the other person down. We may not want to put our-selves on the line by saying we are seek-ing validation or reassurance. To protect ourselves from feeling vulnerable, we may criticize or attack. Sometimes, when a relationship is in an uncertain place, there may be some anxiety about expressing loving feel-ings. Will our partner think itÂs too little, too late? Have we put ourselves on the line by committing to emotions that are more intense than we really feel? Our natural inclination, therefore, may be to ignore ValentineÂs Day alto-gether, or to just go through the motions, without much enthusiasm or attention. Obviously, this approach may antago-nize our partners, or ensure that we stay entrenched in more of the same. I understand we may not always be in the mood. But, what about making a grander gesture? One that takes an emotional risk, and requires us to be the Âbigger person?ÂŽ What will it take for us to reach past the resentments and upsets to approach our partner once again they way we did at the beginning? Initiating a conciliatory statement about our willingness to come through for our partner may create an atmo-sphere that could open up the possibil-ity of true intimacy. We certainly should know the words and gestures that once upon a time touched our lover in a powerful way. Granted, itÂs often emotionally risky to put ourselves on the line. If our partner has seemed preoccupied or aloof, there may be discomfort about putting senti-ments into words that could expose our neediness. And, thereÂs no guarantee they will be receptive or reciprocate with feelings in kind. But much of the time, they too, are longing to recapture the connection that was once so power-ful. There may be ways to take the edge off this holiday by letting our partner know we are looking forward to sharing this special day in a meaningful way. We certainly understand that one night is not the solution to making everything right in a troubled relationship. But sometimes taking the care to reach out in a thoughtful way may be just what it takes to set in motion a positive spiral of important intentions.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 NEWS A19 ÂFolk artÂŽ is the confusing name given to some things made by untrained art-ists. From the 1930s into the Â50s, antique collectors might have called these pieces ÂprimitiveÂŽ or named them for a region, like ÂPennsylv ania German style.ÂŽ By the 1950s, some daring collectors were searching for woodcarvings, painted chests, sculptures and paintings that lacked the realism of a scene or portrait by a trained artist. Everything was hand-made. Today folk art includes not only informal handmade items, but also commer-cial pieces like iron doorstops, carousel horses, store signs, weathervanes and some toys. By the 1960s, there were homemade and factory-made folk art lamps assem-bled from bottles, metal fire extinguish-ers, milk cans and store tins. Other lamps were made by Boy Scouts, prisoners, soldiers or housewives using patterns in craft magazines. Driftwood, unso-phisticated pottery, walnut shells and even antique toasters were used to make lamps. But the most popular and pricey appear to be constructions made of old cigar boxes, Popsicle sticks or hammered brass bullet casings. Today, top prices are paid for lamps made of small glued piec-es of carved wood that show the skill of the maker. Another style is Âtramp art,ÂŽ made from chip-carved pieces of cigar boxes. The ice pop, invented in 1905, was named ÂPopsicleÂŽ in 1924. The wooden sticks from the icy treat were probably used for crafts from the beginning. Boxes of unused sticks were available in stores by the 1950s. Prices are based on the originality and talent of the lampÂs maker and how eager a collector is to own the unique piece, so they can range from $25 to thousands of dollars. A one-of-a-kind 1910 floor lamp by an unknown artist sold last fall at Guyette, Schmidt & Deeter, a Maryland auction house, for a surprising $27,600, well over estimate. The 5-foot-tall lamp was made of carved and stained pine and cedar. The wooden shade and center column are covered with carved and applied birds and designs. Q : I recently bought a desk and chair at a thrift store for $29. The front of the desk pulls down to reveal a storage compartment. There is a sticker under the desk that says ÂFerguson Furniture, Hoboken, N.J.ÂŽ Can you tell me how old it is? A: Ferguson Brothers Manufacturing Co. was founded in 1898 by Harry and Louis Ferguson. The company was incor-porated in Hoboken in 1900. It was run by members of the family until 1953, when it was sold to Sun-Glo Industries. Ferguson made inexpensive reproduction furniture and Âfurniture novelties,ÂŽ including cedar chests, cellarettes, fold-ing screens, folding tables, humidors and smoker stands. Your set sounds like a bargain. Q: I received a lovely picture signed ÂTeroneÂŽ from a friend about 15 years go. He and his wife had owned it since the 1940s. Can you tell me anything about the artist? Are his works valuable? A: Alfred T. Terone (1913-1979) and his wife, Cecelia (1916-1999), gradu-ated from New York University and moved to Chicago to work for Borin Art Products, airbrushing pictures that were then mass-produced as prints. The prints were backed with brown paper and mounted in wooden frames. Some of the coupleÂs work was used on old movie sets and some appeared on the TV show, ÂI Love Lucy.ÂŽ In 1944 the Terones moved back to New York City, where they worked as commercial artists. Prints like yours sell for about $30 to $50 each in perfect condition. Q: Years ago, my mother gave me a pair of heavy antique bronze candlesticks. One of them is decorated with four clear hanging glass prisms. The sec-ond matching candlestick is missing the prisms, but has hooks to hang them. How can I find replacement prisms? A: There are suppliers of glass prisms in the United States. We list some in the free directory on our website, Kovels.com. Just go to our home page and search for the word Âprisms.ÂŽ You also can do an Internet search for Âreplacement glass prisms.ÂŽ You will want to measure the length of your prisms and examine their cutting design to be sure you buy new ones that closely match your old ones. Tip: Dust mites are the subject of many articles today. The more humid the environment, the more quickly the mites multiply. Dust mites eat dust particles, then turn to paints and glazing materials on wooden pieces. The only way to prevent damage is to clean regularly and vacuum with a machine that heats up enough to kill the mites. Q Â„ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Q Highway department warns of fraudulent emails SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles warns the public to be aware of an email spam. Fraudsters have used the departmentÂs name and email address, DoNotReply@flhsmv.gov, to send emails that appear to be from DHSMV, the department said in a press release. The emails look like receipts from online transactions with the department and include con-firmation and tracking numbers. The numbers are not DHSMV tracking num-bers, and the email addresses of the recipients did not come from DHSMVÂs database. An indicator that the email is fraudulent is that it comes from two senders: DoNotReply@flhsmv.gov and another address that varies and may look like a personal email address. All Department email addresses contain @flhsmv.gov as the domain, and DHSMV does not send transactional receipts from personal email addresses. If you receive one of these emails and did not make a recent transaction, the state recommends that you delete the message. If you have already opened the message, do not click any of the links within it.

JS: It seems many of my read-ers have love rela-tionship issues that are entwined with money. I often write to not worry the 2 percent out/under performance in portfolio return but do worry whether you will get a divorce costing you 50 percent of all assets. AM: YouÂre exactly right. Relationships do have a price tag on them yet, often, itÂs invisible. Close your eyes. Think about all the money spent on dating Â„ grooming, clothing, car maintenance, flowers, restau-rants, gym membershipsÂƒ See where IÂm going? That expense is many multiples if you persist in dating the wrong people. But, now, open your eyes to the financial implications of marrying the wrong person as you might as well hand over your wallet Â„ and half your house and half your car, and half your assets. JS: What are the current statistics on divorce? AM: According to a study by the University of St. Augustine, 40 percent to 50 per-cent of all first marriages end in divorce and a whopping 60 percent of all second mar-riages end in divorce. And because nearly 75 percent of divorces are initiated by women, men should read this very carefully. You donÂt have to be an accountant or a math wizard to know that divorce will make you poorer. Think your type is all about tall dark and handsome? Or long legs, full lips and good breasts? Consider adding to that dating profile: fiscally conservative, having no debt, gainfully employed, good with money and certainly not a spendthrift. JS: So what are the primary reasons for divorce? Does infidelity trump money issues? AM: The primary reason first marriages ending is unresolved money issues. The primary reason in second marriages is com-plicated relationships involving step-kids, half-siblings and ex-spousesÂƒ manifested in the financial strain of child support and ali-mony paymentsÂƒ often on both sides of the marriage, all applying constant pressure on the couple. Sexual infidelity, though destruc-tive, is frequently forgiven if itÂs a one-time indiscretion. Actually, I have known cases where a couple does overcome infidelity and it brought them closer than before. Not so with financial infidelity. JS: So why canÂt couples just forgive monetary indiscretions? AM: Because the injured party is often emotionally devastated by the financial deception as it destroys trust and it might well be that goals of financial security or retirement, for which they have tirelessly worked, are now dashed. ItÂs a one-two punch. The injured party feels she cannot trust her partner with basic needs of security and well-being. JS: How can couples best navigate these problems? AM: The best thing is to avoid these money problems and undertake Âdating due diligence.ÂŽ It sounds very unromantic but getting to know each other fiscally is very much part of the reality of a long term healthy relationship. My formula for a suc-cessful marriage is, firstly, compatibility and, then, of equal importance, shared goals and values. Being motivated in the same direc-tion is key. If you canÂt talk about money before marriage, what makes you think you can talk about it after marriage? JS: So what is the solution? It sounds rather bleak. AM: A pre-nuptial agreement is one of the better solutions. It allows couples to articulate their current financial situation, discuss financial expectations and reach agreements that are put in writing, raising issues that could later be deal breakers. If you canÂt agree on its terms and donÂt have the maturity to deal with the issues, you shouldnÂt get married. Where there are children, it is very important that financial obligations and expectations related to them be defined and agreed prior to marriage. JS: DoesnÂt sound too romantic or sexy! AM: Wrong. Having financial security gives you the freedom to be romantic and sexy! JS: Any advice for those who are dating? AM: If you are dating with the intention of building a permanent relationship, especially one leading to marriage, then you had better pick a person with shared values, high character and moral fiber or you will ultimately be tied to a very large liability and you will pay the price, in dollars and burden-some debt, for your bad choices. JS: So when do seriously minded couples start talking about money? AM: Silent communication begins with initial datesÂƒ generosity, style of spending, mutuality in giving to each other, wisdom in purchases, planned versus whimsical spend-ing. You can tell a lot about a personÂs finan-cial character by his ambition and career path, his purchases and if he spends more than he earns. If a guy insists on splitting the check as a matter of course, in spite of being in a two-year relationship, expect more of the same. HeÂs never going to be generous. Likewise, if a woman is always expecting more without contributing, you should look up the definition of golddigger Â„ youÂll probably see her photo there. Now, some practical advice to my readers: Do not discuss money matters with your loved ones on ValentineÂs Day. Q Â„ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Lower taxes and housing prices, and great weather bringing northerners to Palm Beach CountyFlorida has always been referred to as a tax-friendly state. Over the years it has been very enticing to business owners, investors and non-citizens. There have been many articles and blogs over the last several months discussing the increasing number of financial firms Â„ including private equity and hedge funds Â„ moving to Florida. I have been following this news, but have also experienced it firsthand. In the last four months, I have had two buyers purchase proper-ties who are hedge fund managers from the northeast. I have also experienced showing many of my listed properties to hedge fund managers and private equity firm partners. They are mostly coming from New York and Con-necticut. And why not?There are many incentives for these individuals to move their businesses to Florida, and it all begins with the tax advantage. With no state income tax, Florida residents lose about 3.31 percent of their income in total taxes. New Yorkers on the other hand, lose roughly 5 percent. That can add up when most of these indi-viduals and families moving here are earn-ing well over $1 million per year. Other advantages are the obvious: The average temperature in south Florida is in the high 70s, it is almost always sunny, and there are more than enough activities to do outside on a regular basis. Dining, shopping, golf, boating, easy access to airports Â„ what else could there be? The cost of owning a home in Florida is much more reasonable than in New York City, or any-where in close proximity to the city. This allows this type of client the opportunity to come to Florida and not only save tax dollars, but also enjoy a more reasonable cost of living from an overall perspective. One client that I am currently working with has decided to relocate to the area after doing business for more than 15 years in New York City. The couple has three children who are very involved in sporting activities. They are particularly focused on baseball and lacrosse, two sports that can be played outdoors all year in Florida. So, when the clientÂs company opened a satellite office in Palm Beach, he was very intrigued with what Florida had to offer. Since most financial managers can work from any location, he decided to commute between New York and Palm Beach, ulti-mately spending fewer and fewer days in New York. During the summer months, his family joined him in Florida to familiarize them-selves with the area, surrounding schools and to really experience the South Florida lifestyle to see what they thought. The experience was phenomenal for them Â„ a summer experience that exceeded the entire familyÂs expectations and fulfilled all of their needs from housing to athletics. This family is now living hap-pily in Florida full time. They came in January and are currently renting a home until they are settled in with school and activities, but plan on purchasing a home within the next few months. In addition to personal property savings, the commercial property values in Florida are much less expensive than the greater New York area. Smaller companies can easily move their entire firm here and larger companies can offer attractive expansion opportunities in the area. With inventory shrinking and prices rising in residential and commercial real estate, this is another indicator of a strong market that will continue in South Florida and Palm Beach County.

ItÂs the sort of move I always said IÂd never make. My boyfriend is at work and IÂm writing from home, shivering by a space heater and worrying about the ghost in the other room. Not some turn-of-the-last-century specter, as you might imagine, but a ghost of not-so-distant ValentineÂs past. Her name is Adrienne. I know this because she signed an old card with it. Right beneath ÂLove.ÂŽ My boyfriend is notoriously silent on the subject of his past girlfriends, though I know their numbers are legion. IÂm not the jealous type and certainly not the pry-ing type, so IÂve mostly let it go. I donÂt ask questions. I donÂt look for old photos. I donÂt try to excavate evidence of the women who came before me. So this Adrienne was a surprise. My boyfriend and I were sorting through the housewares he brought to our new place when we came across a box that had been sealed for several years. He cut the tape and lifted the flaps and right there on top was a womanÂs hair dryer. I raised an eye-brow. Next came a Ziploc bag of cosmetics. And then, buried beneath the old junk, a card in a red envelope. ÂWhatÂs that?ÂŽ I said casually as he pulled it out of the box. He shrugged. Because he really didnÂt know? Or because he was trying to pretend like he didnÂt care? I couldnÂt say. He opened the card, read the message and laughed. He shook his head, like it was no big deal, and passed the card to me. I read with a careful eye. ÂLook at you Â„ just standing there reading this valentine,ÂŽ the card said in romantic typeface, Âlooking so drop-dead, so irresistibly, so oh-my-god gorgeous. I know itÂs not polite to stare. But donÂt ever expect me to stop. Happy ValentineÂs Day.ÂŽ My heart gave a little squeeze. Another woman had thought these things about the man IÂm trying to start a life with. She had believed them enough to drive to Hallmark and pay $3.99 for a card that said so. On the left-hand flap, she had hand-written her own message: ÂI am thrilled that this valentines [sic] day, I can share the day with you! In all honesty, I donÂt care what we do, as long as you are there! Thank you for being here!ÂŽ My heart gave another turn. Not out of jealousy, as IÂd expected, but out of sympa-thy. Here was a woman in the pantheon of my boyfriendÂs past loves who had come and gone but who must have thought Â„ for a time, anyway Â„ that she was there to stay. And here I am reading this relic of her rela-tionship, wondering whatÂs next for me. Q artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Given the opening diamond lead plus the favorable location of the diamonds and the heart king, this might seem easy. But be fore-warned Â„ itÂs no simple task. The most obvious line is to win EastÂs king of diamonds with the ace, cross to the spade king and lead a heart to the ten. Next, cash the ace of hearts, drop-ping EastÂs king, then return to the jack of spades and discard your club on the heart queen. HereÂs where the trouble begins. If you draw the missing trumps, youÂll eventually lose two diamond tricks to East. If instead you lead a diamond and finesse the eight, West will ruff, and youÂll also lose the dia-mond ten to EastÂs jack at the end. But the contract can be made. Moreover, the winning line of play can be rea-soned out. When East shows out of trumps at trick two and then turns up with just the K-x of hearts, his distribution becomes marked as 0-2-6-5 (his bidding plus WestÂs deuce-of-diamonds lead, which must be a singleton, confirm this diagnosis). East must also have one or both top club hon-ors. Proceeding on this assumption, declarer plays the first five tricks as described above. But at trick six, he discards the dia-mond eight instead of a club on the queen of hearts! He then runs his trumps, coming down to the Q-10 of diamonds and seven of clubs. Dummy keeps the Q-5 of clubs and jack of hearts, while East is reduced to the J-9 of diamonds and ace of clubs. South now leads his club, and East has to win and return a diamond to declarerÂs Q-10, hand-ing him the contract. Note that it doesnÂt help East to jettison his ace of clubs in order to avoid being endplayed. In that case, South leads a club toward dummy, and West must then concede the slam-going trick to dummyÂs queen after he takes his king. Q
B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY the awards ceremony. On Saturday guests can also enjoy a British Car Show. This will be the second year that the Palm Beach Grand Prix will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs by selling charity rides on the road course. Guests will have the opportunity to take a spin on the two-mile, eleven-turn road course by purchasing rides in an exotic car or a racecar. Rides will be available to purchase in the afternoon on both Saturday and Sunday. Last year the charity rides raised $6,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs. Palm Beach Driving ClubÂs professional driver, Shane Lewis, will be giving guests rides in the Radical SR3 racecar. Mr. Lewis is widely considered one of motorsportsÂ leading race and devel-opment drivers. In the past month, Lewis has won two back-to-back 24 Hour endurance races at the 24 Hours of Dubai and the Rolex 24 at Daytona. He has raced in eight 12 Hours of Sebring, seven Petit Le Mans, two 6 hours of Nurburgring and has won the 12 Hours of Magy Cours. Drivers can participate in the fundraiser by entering a race class to win the HSR Le Mans Trophy donated by five-time Le Mans Champion, Derek Bell. The trophy, which Bell hoisted in the winnerÂs circle at the Sarthe Cir-cuit, will be awarded to the team that accumulates the most points during the weekend for on-track performance. ÂOnce again, it is great to start the 2013 season Historic Sports Car Rac-ing season at Palm Beach Interna-tional Raceway,ÂŽ said Ken Fengler, vice president of race operations for HSR and director of the Palm Beach Driving Club at Palm Beach International Raceway, in a prepared statement. ÂThe Palm Beach Grand Prix over the past few years has grown into an event that the drivers, motorsport fans and South Florida car enthusiasts can all enjoy. We are excited to partner with the Boys & Girls Club yet again to raise money for a great cause and also offer fans a firsthand experience of racing at high speed.ÂŽ Palm Beach International Raceway was purchased by a group of real estate and corporate investors in 2007. The state-of-the-art venue is rapidly becom-ing one of the most popular raceways in the country for racers and spectators alike, the statement said. As a leader in its operating form and function, PBIR seeks to provide its drivers with a higher level of challenge, excellence and opportunity. PBIR boasts three completely refurbished, exceptionally designed tracks, including a high-performance road course, an all-concrete drag strip and a 7/10Âs mile karting track and new kart-ing center. The technologically superi-or two-mile road course features some of the fastest and most challenging cor-ners and straight-aways offered by any track in North America. For informa-tion on PBIR, see racepbir.com. Q ÂI have a great time with the audienc e. Ther eÂs lots of humor in the show,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said by phone from Fort Myers, where he was performing the show as part of a tour of the United States and Canada. But there was not a lot of humor at times in LewisÂ life. He married Ameri-can writer Joy Gresham as she was dying of bone cancer. While rehearsing for ÂShadowlands, he was given a copy of ÂA Grief Observed,ÂŽ LewisÂ diary of grief written following the death of his wife, Joy. Mr. Payne memorized the book and then adapted it into a one-man show ÂMist in the Mourning.ÂŽ While answering questions by audience members after a show, it occurred to him, it might be good for Lewis himself to answer the questions, so he wrote ÂAn Evening With C.S. LewisÂŽ around the questions audiences had asked. ÂIt tells the story of how he met his wife, which was humorous in many ways, then how he coped with her death. It is very tender,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. Lewis, born Clive Staples Lewis, but known as Jack to his family and friends, also was known for his books on reli-gion, but was not always serious. ÂHe had a great sense of humor and a great sense of boyish fun. I think like a lot of men there was a part of him that never grew up. That helped him write the Narnia Chronicles,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. He gave most of his book royalties away. ÂHe became quite famous in his lifetime. He always considered the notion of fame to be quite nebulous. He was a very sincere man in what he did. He was very sincere in his Christianity,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. He also was very reserved about his religion. ÂHe didnÂt ram it down peopleÂs throats but he didnÂt hide it. That caused him lots of problems in Oxford. He wrote Christian books and chil-drenÂs book, amd both where frowned upon in Oxford,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. ÂHe didnÂt want to put up a faade.ÂŽ Mr. Payne developed a friend ship with LewisÂ stepson, Douglas Gresham, after Mr. Gresham attended Mr. PayneÂs performance in ÂShadowlands,ÂŽ ÂWe know each other quite well. We got together again when he was at The Kilns, LewisÂs home. As it happened I was there to film a special edition of C.S. Lewis at The Kilns,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. That, of course, is in EnglandÂI do most of the work in the states. My wife and I lived in America for 17 years. I built my reputation here. I would say I have performed in maybe 20 states in America. This time, itÂs Florida and Canada. But weÂre often in California,ÂŽ he said. Lewis died Nov. 22, 1963, the same day President Kennedy was assassinat-ed and author Aldous Huxley died. ÂTheir passing, Lewis and Huxley, went unnoticed,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. But thanks to Mr. Payne, Lewis gets to live again, nearly 50 years after his death from renal failure. ÂEven in a big room, where itÂs not conducive to intimacy, itÂs like being with Lewis, and after some of the shows, some people come out and thank me for writing the books,ÂŽ Mr. Payne said. In the show, Mr. PayneÂs character talks about his wifeÂs death. ÂAn older lady came out and said, ÂIÂm so sorry to hear about your wife.Â And my wife was standing right there,ÂŽ he said. That is when he knows the evening was a success. ÂThey need to be feeling with Jack and if theyÂre feeling with Jack then IÂve done my job.ÂŽ Q LEWISFrom page 1 RACEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTO David Payne found his calling in portraying author C.S.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYÂ“DoubtÂ” delivers fine performances, but is (perhaps) too certain BY BILL HIRSCHMANbill@Â” oridatheateronstage.comCalibration can be unforgivingly crucial in staging plays like Doubt: A Parable when it is essential that audiences leave the theater with precisely that titular uncertainty. ThatÂs because John Patrick ShanleyÂs play at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is not about the truth of whether a priest has molested an altar boy. ItÂs about the unanswered question whether we can ever know Truth and how we cope with the ultimate unknowability of all things, both temporal and divine. So the Maltz production under J. Barry LewisÂ direction merits being seen for three finely-crafted performances by Maureen Anderman, Jim Ballard and Julie Kleiner, plus an outstanding portrait by Karen Stephens. But thematically, itÂs thrown out of whack because the deck seems stacked toward one truth for much of the play and then irrevers-ibly stacked the other way. Few people will leave this production indecisive about the priestÂs guilt or innocence. That misstep undercuts the point of the play and turns it into a cautionary tale about the dangers of certainty rather than the conundrum of uncertainty. On the other hand, this is the kind of play and production in which that fine-tuned cali-bration can change nightly. What I saw may not be what you see the next night. Heck, so much of this is perceptual and susceptible to personal baggage that what I saw may not even be what the fella across the aisle saw the same night. Doubt tracks an investigation by Sister Aloysius (Anderman), the martinet principal of a parochial school in the Bronx in 1964 when ecclesiastical reforms were clashing with hidebound traditions. SheÂs suspicious from the outset of the likeable and handsome new parish priest Father Flynn (Ballard). But her instincts are inflamed to the point of obsession by a report from the idealistic young teacher Sister James (Kleiner) that the schoolÂs only black student left a meeting with Flynn seeming upset and with liquor on his breath. Even with the Church in flux, this remains a patriarchal society in which gender trumps everything ; Sister Aloysius is severely restricted in what she can do. As a result, her inquiry only accumulates hints and state-ments that can be interpreted at least two ways. For most of the evening, the crime is so abhorrent that itÂs never spelled out. The references are so oblique that it underscores the shakiness of the accusation. A battle ensues between the two older clergy with the younger nun both used and wooed by both combatants. Sister James protests, ÂYou have no proof!ÂŽ To which, Sister Aloysius retorts, ÂI have my certainty!ÂŽ Shanley deftly penned a conflict in which the audienceÂs allegiances are supposed to flow back and forth between antagonists who are polar opposites. Sister Aloysius is simply not likeable. You can admire her discipline, devotion, sincerity and eventually her cour-age, but she is a steely authoritarian who dis-misses kindness and compassion as luxuries that pose dangers. When Sister James nearly breaks down at her superiorÂs evaluation of her teaching ability, the young woman cries, ÂI thought you were satisfied with me.ÂŽ To which, Sister Aloysius says evenly, ÂSatisfac-tion is a vice.ÂŽ Later, when Sister James says she cannot believe Father Flynn would do harm, Sister Aloysius answers, ÂYouÂd trade anything for a warm look.ÂŽ Flynn exudes geniality and empathy. His sermons delivered directly to the audi-ence are imbued with profound compas-sion. When confronted by Sister Aloysius, he seems far less concerned with his reputation on a personal level so much as how such a claim will cripple his ability to serve the parish. In an attempt to gather evidence, Sister Aloysius asks the boyÂs mother (Stephens) to come to her office. The visit, perhaps the strongest scene in the play, does not go as anyone expects. Finally, Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn have their showdown in private. It encom-passes a moment in which everything turns inside out. IÂll argue that the cast and direc-tor did not conquer that vital scene opening night because when itÂs over, many people should still be unsure, perhaps even more conflicted. But the scene is played in such a blunt unambiguous way that doubt vanishes. That destroys the very last beat of the play and gives a completely different meaning to the last line then I think Shanley intended. That said, this team has mounted an insightful thought-provoking production highlighted by LewisÂ trademark of lead-ing an earnest cast through an excavation of every moment, peeling back layers of meaning in ShanleyÂs script and then skill-fully communicating their findings to the audience. Anderman unreservedly dives straight into Sister AloysiusÂ flawed nature, portray-ing someone who cares not a whit about being liked, caring only about being an effec-tive instrument for the greater good, no matter the cost to herself or anyone else. She submerges herself in Sister AloysiusÂ sever-ity in both appearance and affect. She carries herself as if her shawl is weighing down her shoulders. When she hears Sister James praise FlynnÂs homily, she responds, ÂHis sermon last Sunday was poetic,ÂŽ spinning the last word with a slight twirl of disapproval. Fresh off playing the patrician wife in Palm Beach DramaworksÂ A Delicate Bal-ance, Anderman makes it easy to believe that the nun has lived a chastening life in the real world before taking the veil and that her willingness to bend the rules to achieve jus-tice comes from her pragmatic appreciation THEATER REVIEWCOURTESY PHOTO Maureen Anderman and Jim Ballard star in Maltz Jupiter TheatreÂ’s Â“Doubt.Â”

Grand Opening Awaken. PUZZLE ANSWERS for how the world works. This is tough role because we must admire the purity of her motives while questioning the accuracy of her obsession with evil. Ballard is a fine actor whose underrated work as the beleaguered husband in Mosaic TheatreÂs Side Effects and whose portrayal of the anguished man in Dramaworks in All My Sons were essential to the successes of both shows. Here, his linchpin performance is the one that needs more shading and ambiguity, but he makes a solid adversary for Ander-man. He delivers FlynnÂs genuine warmth and his compassion for frailty that borders on humanism. With the lilt of a Boston outsid-erÂs accent, he measures the phrasing of his sermons to capture the audienceÂs sympathy from opening monologue. When he cries out in the voice of the afflicted, ÂAre we alone?ÂŽ he does make you wonder, as you should, whether that empathy is born out of his own need for forgiveness. Kleiner works hard to bring plausibility to the young woman who says, ÂI want peace of mindÂŽ in a terrified tone that it will never come again. She makes it clear that Sister James could not have imagined two authority figures actually being in conflict. She doesnÂt completely escape making Sister James a bit of a squeaky-voiced simpering naf, but thatÂs what Shanley wrote and itÂs tough for any actress to make such ingenuousness credible. All three are solid, but itÂs StephensÂ performance in just one scene that turns on the light switch. Lewis has kept a lid on the emo-tional intensity through the production up to this point, perhaps because Sister Aloysius must proceed gingerly. But the electricity starts flowing from StephensÂ appearance and on through the rest of the play. Stephens inhabits a stunningly pragmatic character whose decisions on paper are seemingly indefensible, yet she makes the womanÂs internal logic absolutely convincing. Her act-ing is so smooth, so absent acting tricks, so convincing that you canÂt see how she does it. One aspect that this production underscores is the rigid male-centric hierarchy which enabled abuses and which institu-tionalized the demeaning of women. Sister Aloysius understands that Flynn can pull rank anytime he wishes and crush her efforts. Neither can she leapfrog over the ineffectual parish monsignor and approach the bishop. No doubt, there is little justice likely to be achieved here. This is the Maltz, so impressive production values are a given, starting with Timothy MackabeeÂs set, ranging from the oppres-sively institutional principalÂs office to the high brick walls keeping the modern world outside. Marty MetsÂ sound design is outstanding, not just for the clarity of the actorsÂ speech, but for the inventiveness of his aural sound-scape. He takes advantage of the MaltzÂs multiple speakers to ensure that atmospheric chimes emanate from different points around and behind the audience. He weaves in soft, almost subliminal sounds, like the voices of children on the playground in the moments before Father Flynn gives his first sermon. Paul BlackÂs lighting ranges from the cold illumination of Sister AloysiusÂ office to the autumnal shadows of bare tree branches fall-ing across the red brick walls of the school. In this ever-mutating 21st Century world in which many people seem to require cer-titude in every facet of their belief system, regardless of contravening facts, the Maltz production raises questions about unyielding convictions.

NoWhat an offensive, insulting and unfunny movie ÂIdentity ThiefÂŽ is. When it was over, I needed a shower to purge the funk of awfulness it exuded. Excited because itÂs the same director as ÂHorrible Bosses,ÂŽ Seth Gordon? Understandable, but stop now. Think itÂs funny because of the trailer? Wrong. When the scenes from the trailer occur in the movie, theyÂre met with nothing more than a slight chuckle (if that). So donÂt be misled by the advertising Â„ all the humor is desperate and forced, a sad reality for two talented comedians, Melissa McCar-thy and Jason Bateman. Sandy (Bateman) is an uptight accountant with a loving wife (Amanda Peet) and two adorable daughters. Fake Sandy (Ms. McCarthy) steals real SandyÂs identity and maxes out a few credit cards. Sandy is not the first person to fall victim to her: Bitch SandyÂs house, her car, her hair Â„ everything she has Â„ sheÂs obtained through fraud. ThereÂs nothing to like about her. For good measure she also sold a few bad credit cards to drug dealers, so two assassins (rapper T.I. and Genesis Rodriguez) are after her, in addition to a bounty hunter (Robert Patrick). ItÂs never clear who sent the bounty hunter, though, because revealing that would allow the subplot to make sense and not let it just hang there needlessly and without explanation. Worried that his new boss (John Cho) will fire him, Sandy travels from Denver to Winter Park (the one near Orlando) to find bitch/fake Sandy and bring her home to Denver. Yes, this is kidnapping, and no, the morality of that is never mentioned. Once back in Denver, he hopes, heÂll force her to confess her fraud to his boss and a local detective (Morris Chestnut). What follows is a lame rip-off of ÂPlanes, Trains & AutomobilesÂŽ that has zero charm, wit, intelligence or grace. Predictably, bitch/fake Sandy gets the real Sandy to lighten up during the trip, and she turns a new leaf and realizes her wrongdoing. And this is where the film is really galling. As an audience, weÂre asked to like and embrace bitch/fake Sandy and root for her, even though sheÂs a noted criminal who deserves to go to jail. So if youÂre amoral, youÂll love it. If you have values and care about social order, youÂll find it offensive. And poor Mr. Bateman. HeÂs a talented comedian, but the script from Craig Mazin gives him nothing to work with. Worse, Ms. McCarthy, who presumably had freedom to improvise, is done no favors with the editing and timing of the alleged laugh-out-loud moments. ÂIdentity ThiefÂŽ represents 112 minutes of your life that you will never get back. It is a waste of time, energy and money Â„ unless youÂre looking for a movie to piss you off with its ineptitude.

The exhibition is spon-sored by Cotleur & Hearing Landscape Architects, Planners and Environmental Consultants. Mr. FernandezÂs drawings, photo-graphs and paint-ings, some of which span more than 12 feet wide, give one the sense of being in a totally different environment. Take a closer look; Fernandez has created a landscape by deconstructing reality and reassem-bling it according to his own precise and calculated imagination. Mr. Fernandez, born in Cuba, graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Florida and received his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Uni-versity of South Florida. An internationally known artist, he creates complex pictorial structures with a unique depiction of light and space. His works are in numerous pub-lic and private collections throughout the world, including the Florida House of Rep-resentatives and the capitol building in Tal-lahassee. He lives and works in Florida and New York City. ÂIn this 30-year career retrospective exhibition, Jake Fernandez invites you to survey his changing interests, explorations and development of style in multiple medi-ums,ÂŽ said Katie Deits, executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. ÂThe Light-house ArtCenter Museum is pleased to present this unique artistÂs collective of work.ÂŽThe Lighthouse ArtCenter is located in Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive. Museum hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with admission free for members and $5 for non-members ages 12 and up. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with free admission.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 14-20, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Chicken Cashew Nut The Place: Thaicoon, 450 Northlake Blvd., North Palm Beach; 848-8538 The Price: $6.95 lunch; larger portion at dinner, $12.95 The Details: Here is a dish you can feel good about. The recipe seems to be: Saut bits of ten-der chicken with onions and peppers, then stir in cashews. Serve with rice, eat and enjoy. The cashews offer a bit of crunch, along with a little extra protein. The sauted onions get slightly sweet and offer a nice coun-terpoint to the Thai spices. ItÂs simply refreshing, and is a new go-to dish at Thaicoon, a restaurant we have been visiting for nearly 20 years. It is dishes like this, which are served with flair, that keep us coming back. Q Â„ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Have you seen that little yellow building on Northlake Boulevard named ÂDockside Sea Grill?ÂŽ Have you wondered how the restaurant acquired its name? Well, as owner Liz Turner says, ÂdonÂt let the building discourage you; when youÂre sitting on the back dock along-side the water, you would never realize that youÂre actually sitting on Northlake Boulevard.ÂŽ Mrs. Turner, originally from Philadelphia, attended Temple University, where she studied business. After working as a hostess in a local restaurant, she discov-ered that although her pas-sion was business Â„ it was for the restaurant business. This passion did not extend to insurance firms in which she says she had previously worked. Mrs. TurnerÂs husband, Randall, who is a chef, has a shared love for the industry. While Mrs. Turner was managing multiple restaurants and later a hotel in Philadelphia, Mr. Turner was working with many chefs to become the chef he is today as well as land a job at the Albany Hilton Hotel. This encour-aged the couple to move to upstate New York. It wasnÂt until 27 years ago, when the Turners moved to South Florida, that they decided to work together and create their own estab-lishments. Crocodile Rock Cafe was brought to Juno Beach and Lake Worth as the coupleÂs first endeavor. ÂRandy would do all the food preparation,ÂŽ she says. ÂI would work the front of the house.ÂŽ Six years ago, they created Dockside Sea Grill in Lake Park with a focus on a relaxing and family-oriented atmosphere. With any-thing from burgers, to fish, steak, chicken and more, Mrs. Turner confirms, Âthere is some-thing here for everybody!ÂŽ In August 2012, Dockside expanded beyond a sit-down menu. Dockside Dollar Grille intro-duced a new cash-only concept in which all food items cost $1. ÂWe came up with the Dockside Dollar Grille because of the economy,ÂŽ she says. ÂWe accommodate people who are on a budget and for people who want good food.ÂŽ Name: Liz Turner Age: 60 Original Hometown: Philadelphia Restaurant: Dockside Sea Grille, 766 Northlake Blvd., Lake Park Mission: ÂWe want to please our customers and serve good food at a reasonable price. There is something here for everybody!ÂŽ Cuisine: Seafood and American restaurant WhatÂs your favorite footwear of choice in the kitchen? ÂI donÂt want to slip and fall, so I wear some type of non-skid rubber bot-tom shoe. Sometimes itÂs sneakers and some-times itÂs boots. I donÂt wear heels, I always stay comfortable.ÂŽ What is your guilty culinary pleasure? ÂI love our antipasto salad and our seafood flat-bread; itÂs wonderful and very popular!ÂŽ What advice would you give someone who wants to go into the restaurant busi-ness? ÂBeing in the restaurant business is a commitment with a lot of hours, but it can also be very rewarding and enjoyable. If you donÂt have a passion for the business, then I donÂt recommend it. You canÂt expect to open up a restaurant and not be there. You have to be hands-on and be knowledgeable about how the restaurant business runs.ÂŽ Q In the kitchen with...LIZ TURNER, Dockside Sea Grille BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Raise a glass and watch a gourmet meal being preparedTURNER SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Local gourmands can sip Tuscan wines while watching a meal being prepared at In The Kitchen in Teques-ta.
