Id wandered out of the cabin where my mother and grandmother were clean-ing up after dinner (as we called the noon meal she served to all of us at once, including cowhands). Without much thought, I eased past the waist-high pile of old deer and elk antlers lying bone-white in the Colorado sun, ignored the outhouse and the chick-en coop, briefly considered climbing into the hay barn beyond, then slipped warily along the flank of the big corrals, with the grain room and the saddle room standing above the fence rails like guard stations. On that day the corrals held about 20 head of yearling steers, as I remember it „ that was usually the case. Every one of them stopped chewing to eye me intently, their heads up, their nostrils flaring, breaking the still life only to lift a nervous tail and pie the dry dirt. Some-times a small contingent would panic and wheel away across the corral; other times one or two would step out front and move with me inside the fence, hinting at belligerence. Once below the corrals, I made my way slowly across the long meadow to the south, toward the 14,000-foot Sangre de Cristos, which poked their pointy heads above the entire valley from a distance of 60 miles or so. No one noticed me, but when I reached the edge of the valley where the pine and aspen woods rose steeply and broke away from Wilson Creek to rise and fall over miles of ridges, I glanced back just once to make sure. Thats when it happened, and thats why I remember it so well: Death became a real possibility to me. Or at least an intimation of the pure absence of those I loved most finally dawned on me. For the first time, I understood something of uncut solitude, something of unsalvageable loss „ and I tasted the gorge of despair that goes with it for the inexperienced. What if, through no fault of my own, I was suddenly bereft, I wondered? What if I couldnt find my father down in the valley somewhere, because he was dead? What if I returned to that cabin to find everyone I ever knew or cared about gone, and now merely history? What would that feel like? It was also the first time I felt heavy dread, while standing alone. Besides, I was about to enter the heavy woods where black bears and mountain lions had been known to wander „ good reason for dread, as I viewed it. Since Id been prohibited from carrying or handling any rifle without my father present until I was older,Ž I felt meanly placed, unjustifiably ill-equipped. I had my pocketknife and my sling-shot, of course, but they began to seem less significant than they had up near the house. Then, Id considered myself the near-equal of Jim Bridger and Hugh Glass, so Id devised a foolish plan: To sneak into the woods and find Daddy, who had left with a gun in his hand hours before. Down in the valley the silence was complete. In those days, a week could go by before any other human being even happened past in a truck „ the nearest inhabited house was five miles away. Every couple of weeks, maybe, an air-plane would go over. A single fly or a passing honeybee could seem as loud in the still air as a bow drawn suddenly over fiddle strings. And the sudden staccato rattle of a grass-hopper, only faintly resembling the tim-ber rattlesnakes of which I was afraid, could rocket a boy like me „ a boy with an eight-cylinder imagination in four-cyl-inder courage „ a good foot into orbit. I climbed up on a rock and tried to deal with the completely novel feelings. I watched the sky. I studied the great shad-ows of clouds sliding darkly through the pines on distant hillsides. I strained my eyes as far as I could see, ranging miles of country in hope of catching even the slightest movement that would foretell my fathers return. But he didnt come. I had to deal with loneliness alone. I noticed something, though; every time that unspeakable sadness would rise in me, every time I felt tears breech-ing, the hard land would shift or move or puff. A breeze, a distant bird swoop-ing downward from the higher trees, a nearby chipmunk foraging „ something would happen. And then it would settle back again, implacable, eternal. Implacable and eternal. The Ute Indians had seen it and watched it forever, I knew. My grandfather and homestead-ers I never met because they were dead before I was born had seen it. My parents and aunts and uncles had seen it and watched it. I had now seen it, and somebody would come after me to see it, too. The earth and sky didnt care if all of us were history „ and all of us are history, at one point or another. Perversely, perhaps, that gave me a sense of peace. And peace (I was inca-pable of this reasoning at the time) is a condition of mind that can tolerate any solitude, no matter how difficult. All of that came back to me the other day in about 30 seconds, when I looked into the beautiful, the uncompromising, the unflinching solitude of Clyde Butch-er. Shortly after his son was killed in an automobile in 1986, he took a photograph called Ochopee.Ž A distant and solitary island of trees lies sandwiched between earth and sky, the endless sawgrass ris-ing below, the limitless clouds drifting above. Haunting in its loneliness, Mr. Butchers photo captures something implaca-ble and eternal: that great natural peace that endures all torment.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYAlbert Woodfox’s 40 years of solitary confinementAlbert Woodfox has been in solitary confinement for 40 years, most of that time locked up in the notorious maxi-mum-security Louisiana State Peniten-tiary known as Angola.Ž This week, after his lawyers spent six years arguing that racial bias tainted the grand-jury selection in Woodfoxs prosecution, fed-eral Judge James Brady, presiding in the U.S. District Court for the Middle Dis-trict of Louisiana, agreed. Accordingly, Woodfoxs habeas relief is GRANTED,Ž ordered Brady, compelling the state of Louisiana to release Woodfox. This is the third time his conviction has been overturned. Nevertheless, Woodfox remains imprisoned. Those close to the case expect the state of Louisiana, under the direction of Attorney General James BuddyŽ Caldwell, to appeal again, as the state has successfully done in the past, seeking to keep Woodfox in solitary confinement, in conditions that Amnesty International says can only be described as cruel, inhuman and degrading.Ž Woodfox is one of the Angola 3.Ž Angola, the sprawling prison complex with 5,000 inmates and 1,800 employ-ees, is in rural Louisiana on the site of a former slave plantation. It gets its name from the country of origin of many of those slaves. It still exists as a forced-labor camp, with prisoners toiling in fields of cotton and sugar cane, watched over by shotgun-wielding guards on horseback. Woodfox and fellow inmate Herman Wallace were in Angola for lesser crimes when implicated in the prison murder of a guard in 1972. Wood-fox and Wallace founded the Angola chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1971, and were engaged in organizing against segregation, inhumane working conditions and the systemic rape and sexual slavery inflicted on many impris-oned in Louisianas Angola. Herman and Albert and other folks recognized the violation of human rights in prison, and they were trying to achieve a better prison and living con-ditions,Ž Robert King told me last year. And as a result of that, they were tar-geted.Ž King is the third member of the Angola 3, and the only one among them to have finally won his freedom, in 2001. King went on: There is no rationale why they should be held in solitary con-finement „ or, for that matter, in prison. This is a double whammy. We are deal-ing with a double whammy here. We are not just focusing on Hermans and Alberts civilor human-rights violation, but there is question also as to whether or not they committed this crime. All the evidence has been undermined in this case.Ž Since his release, King has been fighting for justice for Wallace and Woodfox, traveling around the U.S. and to 20 countries, as well as addressing the European Parliament. The devastating psychological impacts of long-term solitary confinement are well-documented. Solitary also limits access to exercise, creating a cascade of health complications. The Center for Constitutional Rights is challenging the use of solitary confinement in California prisons, writing: Ever since solitary confinement came into existence, it has been used as a tool of repression. While it is justified by corrections officials as necessary to protect prisoners and guards from violent superpredators, all too often it is imposed on individu-als, particularly prisoners of color, who threaten prison administrations in an altogether different way.Ž In a recorded phone conversation from Angola, Herman Wallace explained: Where we stay, were usually in the cell for 23 hours, and an hour out. Im not out. I may come out of the hole here, but Im still locked up on that unit. Im locked up. I cant get around that. Any-where I go, I have to be in chains. Chains have become a part of my existence. And thats one of the things that people have to fully understand. Understanding it is one thing, but experiencing it is quite another.Ž Despite the decades in solitary confinement, Woodfox remains strong. As he said over a prison pay phone in one of the documentaries about the case, In the Land of the FreeŽ: If a cause is just noble enough, you can carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. And I thought that my cause, then and now, was noble. So therefore, they could never break me. They might bend me a little bit, they might cause me a lot of pain. They might even take my life. But they will never be able to break me.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. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe talented Mr. Lew 1 a c s o amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Some guys have it, and some dont. Im referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in sense-less acts of high-priced beneficence. Jack Lew has it like nobodys business. You might think the bespectacled trea-sury secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans and granting him generous golden parachutes. Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent „ at the art of getting paid.He left the Clinton administration, where he served as director of the Office of Management and Budget, for what turned out to be the extremely lucrative field of nonprofit education. At New York University, he made more than $800,000 in 2002. According to his W-2, examined by staff on Capitol Hill, he made $1.2 mil-lion in total compensation in 2006.Even for Jack Lew, housing in New York City can be expensive. Not to worry. New York University provided him a loan for housing. The trouble with loans is that they have to be paid back. Not to worry. All is forgiven if you are Jack Lew, especially your loans. According to Lew, the university forgave the loan of some $1.4 million in equal installments over five years.Ž Upon leaving NYU, Lew received what he describes as a one-time sever-ance payment upon my departure.Ž He wasnt fired, usually the occasion for severances. He simply left and got paid for the act of leaving. Hey, thats Jack Lew „ he gets paid when he stays and gets paid when he goes. He went to Citigroup, which NYU had made its primary private lender for student loans in exchange for a cut of those loans. (Coincidences happen to everyone, including Jack Lew.) In 2008, as the bank nearly blew up and laid off one-seventh of its employees, Lew ran its disastrous Alternative Investments unit „ and got paid $1.1 million. The bank had to be bailed out by the federal government, but it couldnt stop paying Jack Lew. The journalist Jona-than Weil of Bloomberg has unearthed Lews contract at Citi. It said, reasonably enough, that he wouldnt get his guar-anteed incentive and retention awardŽ if he left the company. It made an excep-tion, though, if Lew left to get a full-time high level position with the United States government or regulatory body.Ž Jack Lew being Jack Lew, he left Citi to become deputy secretary of state, on his way to resuming his duties at OMB, then becoming the chief of staff to the president, and now secretary of the treasury. And, of course, he got paid. The cynics talk of crony capitalism. The scoffers hint of special favors for the politically connected. The good-government types worry about the unseemliness of a too-big-to-fail Wall Street bank giving one of its executives an incentive to become a high-ranking government official. Maybe they should give it a rest and simply stand back and marvel at the moneymaking machine that is Jack Lew. Lesser mortals criticize and cavil. He gets paid.

How well do you know cats? Check out these 10 fast questions, with the answers at the end. No fair letting your cat help! 1. When used to describe a cats behavior, buntingŽ is when a cat: a) Uses urine to mark a doorwayb) Chatters at the sight of a birdc) Bumps and rubs his head to leave a scent mark d) Bats around his prey2. Which of these is not a reason why cats claw things?a) To keep claws sharp and help remove worn claw sheathes b) To leave scent on an objectc) To provide muscles with a good stretchd) To be spiteful3. A cat whos getting agitated to the point of lashing out while being petted will often have a tail thats: a) Twitching and flipping at the tipb) Wagging gently from the basec) Perfectly stilld) Carried straight up4. Cats purr when theyre:a) Content b) Frightenedc) Injured d) All of the above5. Most cats have how many whiskers?a) 18 b) 24 c) 32 d) 566. Which of the following places are not good for petting, in the opinion of most cats?a) Tummy b) Underside of chinc) Base of tail d) Side of face7. The average cat weighs: a) Between 12 and 15 poundsb) Between 8 and 10 poundsc) More than 15 poundsd) Between 6 and 8 pounds8. Cats start their grooming routine by:a) Licking their tail tipsb) Licking their flanksc) Licking their lipsd) Licking their paws9. High-riseŽ syndrome refers to:a) A cats preference for perching on tall objects b) The ability of cats to live happily in upper-floor apartments c) The survival rate of cats who fall from high places d) A cats enjoyment of a good view10. The normal body temperature of a cat is: a) 97 degreesb) Between 100 and 102.5 degreesc) 99 degreesd) 104 degreesANSWERS1. c „ Every cat lover is familiar with bunting,Ž which is what a cat does when he bumps and rubs on something, such as your leg or hand. 2. d „ Contrary to common belief, cats dont destroy your sofa for spite, but because clawing is natural feline behavior. 3. a „ You may avoid a nasty bite by watching your cats tail. When the tip starts to flip, end the petting session. 4. d „ Although most purring is a sign of contentment, cats have also been known to purr in stressful or painful situations. 5. b „ In most cats, the 24 whiskers are neatly divided into four rows on each side of the face. Each whisker „ technically called a vibrissaŽ „ is imbedded deeper than normal hairs to enhance its sensory input. 6. a „ Many cats become agitated if petted on the tummy, and they may claw or bite. Save tummy rubs for your dog! 7. b „ While most average-weight cats will come in between 8 pounds and 10 pounds, some cat breeds will normally be much heavier. A healthy cat should have a little padding over the ribs „ but not too much. 8. c „ A cat will generally groom himself in the same sequence, starting by lick-ing his lips, then his paws, then rubbing the paws over his head. The tail is generally last to get cleaned. 9. c „ Cats can right themselves in midair and brace for impact if they have time, which is why cats have a better chance of surviving a fall from a few floors up than from a balcony closer to the ground. Above a certain height, however, no cat can survive the fall. 10. b „ Temperatures below 99 degrees or above 103 degrees are reason to worry „ and to call your veterinarian. Howd you do? If you got them all right, you really know your cats. Q PET TALESDo you speak cat?10 questions test your feline expertise >>Pepper is a 1-year-old spayed retriever mix. She likes people and cats.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYfeet, Mrs. Hicks had encountered a woman with attitude. She tells me, I cant see, youre standing in my way, the captain relates. She says, Get down. I said, Lady, if I get down on my knees, youre going to have to have a crane to get me up.Ž The day before, a refusenik had taken her up the tournament marshals equiva-lent of the Def-Con scale. At first, he refused to put away his phone. She told him to hand it over. He did, finally,Ž she says. He was pretty embarrassed.Ž Any fan who chooses to be more belligerent triggers a radio call to the Mobile Device Task Force, whose members offer two options: surrender the device and quiet down or get a police escort to your car. Keep it up then, and its jail. Thankfully, this year, nobody has landed there. The worst behavior is often fueled by alcohol. Most people, they say, show up to have a respectful, and respectable, good time. Not long after, on Number Seventeen, centerpiece of the pavilion-ed Bear Trap and its social whirl, three men at a greenside overlook will be shouting and gesturing as they bet on whether the caddie with the red bib will step onto the green first. They go quiet at the right times. Most of the Trap seems benign. Today, another of the duties particular to Number One has come prominently into play: informant. Again and again, they are asked for pairings and tee times and whos doing what where. I dont have much idea what players are doing on the course,Ž Sandy Hicks says. Marshals have to focus on the crowd and the players and companions, after all, not on the action. But they can pull schedules from their pockets and recite, yet again, who plays when. The day has brought a more urgent question: What happened to Rory? He had left the course, in his second round, on the 18th fairway, his ninth hole of the day. He never made it to Number One. We realized he was missing when we only had two on the tee,Ž the captain says. I was told that he picked up his ball, shook hands with his playing part-ners and left. I said what I was told. You could just feel the air go out of these people here.Ž Soon, though, they inhale at the prospect of the one player under more scru-tiny than any in history, a player in dan-ger of missing the halfway cut. Crowds have filled the stands on either side and behind Number One tee, surrounding the tee box and lawns fan-ning down toward the fairway, and some of the faithful are surging against the ropes, eager, happy, wanting a LOOK, a near-encounter, a memory. Most have no idea of the concerns of marshals or, in many cases, even of the rules. And a human tidal surge is three groups away. Where is he?Ž Jim Chisholm asks, and Sandy pulls out her list and runs a finger down the names: Streelman, Krauk, Lynn, Stanley, OHair, Ames.... There!Ž she says, with a stab of the finger. Just then, starter Don Chornak lifts his head under Scottish flat cap and calls, without a microphone, Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the second round of the 2013 Honda Classic at PGA National, the Champion Course. With the 11:55 starting time, from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, please welcome Steve Marino!Ž Applause is enthused. Just wait. Even backed by Palm Beach Gardens police and private security, First Hole Captains Hicks and Chisholm and their fellow volunteers know they face the days highest drama with the approach of the name Mr. Chornak will CLASSICFrom page 1 JOHN SESSA / FLORIDA WEEKLYTiger Woods returned to the Classic for the second straight year.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 NEWS A9 call six players away: ... from Jupiter, Florida, Tiger Woods!Ž For the marshals at Hole One, even that will be a mere moments higher diligence. The greater threat to peace, order and justice waits all around them. For the captain and her crew, for their boss, Bob Munson and, for HIS boss, Josy Proudfoot, and their boss, Jim Coleman; for tournament director Ed McEnroe and HIS boss, executive director Ken Kennerly, and for Director of Marketing Bill Decker Jr., standing nearby on the first tee, the most disrup-tive wave hitting these days is lifted from pockets and held in hands and often pointed at players: cell phones, smart phones, tablets, Androids, what-ever mobile marvel comes next. Pro golfs marshals have always battled cameras, the click and flash and then the chattering motor drive. Now, the same wireless and laser advances that help volunteer spotters pinpoint shots and keep track of players and scores has also fueled a fresh set of worries. Why allow mobile devices? Jim Coleman offers a straight answer: I-phone and android devices have an applica-tion that is provided by none other than the PGA Tour, so you can track your favorite players on the course. Its for the spectator experience. We track D.A. Points, one of my daughter (Samantha)s favorite players, and ... oh!Ž He looks at his own iPhone. Hes not doing well. Hes three over today and hes only on the fourth hole. Whats on the bottom? Advertising. Also with X-finity and Golf Channel and NBC, they have streaming video. This is the newest problem, because when you have video theres always the audio with it. Theres also a practi-cal reason. On Thursday and Friday, this allows working people to stay con-nected with their business, to cut the tether and actually come out and be on the course. Technology is here. We have to accept that fact. Now we just have to manage it.Ž HAVE TO is right. The premium is on protecting players. Sandy Hicks says, As Gary Player said to one guy, I dont come into your office and bother you. I dont want you to come into my office and bother me.Ž Even on this calm day, they are also hit by a cultural crosswind sweeping across the PGA Tour, often distilled to a single word: Scottsdale.Ž During the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the 16th ColiseumŽ hole at TPC Scottsdale has created a cel-ebratory, pixilated, vastly popular mon-ster. There, rowdy is de rigueur, though directors have worked to temper it. At PGA National, where part of the fun includes wine and rum, the marshals at Hole One and across the course coun-ter the new profuse-iasms with the oldschool, tried-and-true, flesh-and-blood direction: the QUIET and NO PHONES placards lifted silently overhead, the face-to-face sound of the human voice. OK, remember the drill,Ž Sandy tells the bleacher folk. Put your cell phones away, please.Ž They will even counsel spectators on invaders from above. I will warn you,Ž Sandy tells the bleacher crowd, and she points to a blackbird side-wheeling nearby. Dont leave any food on your lap, because that little thing there will come right down and take it!Ž The team at Hole One lifts placards and issue rejoinders and start scanning, again, and Steve Marino hammers a drive off the finely cut teebox and into a bright gray sky. Jim Chisholm echoes a signal relayed from halfway down the left side of the fairway by John McGan-non: two arms held straight ahead. Right down the middle! When Alexander Noren hits his ball right, into a stand of trees, Mr. Chisholm shifts both arms right, as if guiding an airliner on tarmac. At the break, team member Mel Epstein is obviously butt ering up his captain. Sandys the hardest working person out here,Ž Mel says, and Sandy says, Flattery will get you anywhere, but youre still going to the landing area.Ž Shucks!Ž Mel says. For these volunteers, finding a happy middle with onlookers and each other is a way of life, and an art form. They pay for the privilege, financially ($65 for clothing and accessories, $10 of it to charity), physically and emotionally. Sandy Hicks is out there with a bad back and swollen ankles, spending much of five very full days on her feet. Shes not complaining. She proves, in fact, what Jim Coleman says about Honda Classic volunteers: A lot of these people, they do it the first time, theyre hooked for life.Ž It IS work, but its fun,Ž Sandy says. I love this!Ž Sometimes, the love is tough. Generally, they know, onlookers dont like being told what to do.Ž Sandy is good at being firm,Ž Mel Epstein says. Sandy is Mama.Ž Somebody said to me yesterday, Were you a teacher? Sandy says. I said, no, I was an administrative assis-tant. I had five bosses, and I had to know where every one of them was at all times.Ž You ran that office,Ž Mr. Epstein says, still trying. She was, for many years, a walking scorer, keeping track of a groups shots and running totals on foot, back when everything was kept on paper. Here, demands go well beyond the routine. Every volunteer, like every player and spectator, different, Sandy says, so, in action, you apply the instruc-tions with your own strengths and per-sonality. John Walker, for instance, is especially good at the pinch-and-flip needed on the braided polypropylene fence line, lifted from fenceposts as players pass through and dropped back again. As the next threesome approaches from the practice range, he calls, Behind the green line, please!Ž and pulls the poly-pro away. You work as a team, they say. You also have a leader. Sandy keeps the schedule, and today they are down one person and, always, trying to fill in. For Satur-day, they have too many signed up, and she hopes to reshuffle for Sunday. This team, of course, works as a small squadron in a far larger army, protecting the front lines. Players are the focus. Some players, they know, dont get rattled. Arnold Palmer could kid with people in the gallery before stepping over a putt that would decide whether he won or didnt. Jack Nicklaus was asked about hecklers at one of Mr. Palmers home courses on his way to beating him to win his first major, the 1962 U.S. Open, and Mr. Nicklaus said, I didnt notice.Ž Most players are not rattle-proof. A group or two later, two veteran players, both, as it happens, fighting to regain their form, wave Jim Chisholm off his post. They must have some peripheral vision,Ž he says. Imagine if someone, at the wrong moment, had clicked a shut-ter or flashed a flash or, now, flipped up a cell phone or other mobile device. Hey, arent the PGA itself and the networks, NBC and the Golf Channel, and Comcasts X-finity pushing on-the-course use of devices? Despite the marshals best efforts, despite holding up placards with a famil-iar QUIET PLEASE on one side and a new NO PHONES on the other, most fans still seem oblivious to the newer rules. Another bit of video captured that day, to be played and re-played later on ESPN and Golf Channel, would show tennis great and locally beloved Serena Williams with a smart phone, aiming it at Tiger, being told by a marshal to please put it away. She looks surprised, then gives a gesture of Sorry!Ž Here comes the next group, from the practice range next door, and Sandy and her cohorts hurry to open a path. A caddy pokes his head in, and smiles at Sandy in greeting. You still here?Ž he says. Its Mark Fulcher, Justin Roses caddy, and soon Justin Leonard will step in to shake hands, too. Don Chornak, she will say, knows ALL the golfers, but shes remembered, too. She DOES cut a memorable figure. She and her husband, Bill, worked out here together and in PGA regular and senior tour and LPGA tournaments on other courses for many years, starting back home (still their summer home) in Hershey, Penn-sylv ania. Now, a bad fall has kept him at home. He came out Wednesday,Ž she says. He wants to be here.Ž Still, shes had most of her team with her for at least a few years, and most come back. The next group of players comes and goes, and in moments an electric tremor seems to sweep across them. Hes coming,Ž John Walker says. This where their skills are fully tested. Among those pressing at the ropes of braided polypropylene are Sarah McKenna, a student at William T. Dwyer High School, and her friend, Bob Cleve-land. My boss wants me to get a picture of Tiger,Ž she says. If I dont, hell prob-ably fire me.Ž She might get a quick shot as he sweeps past her. Police officers and security guards walking ahead and behind, his eyes straight ahead, Tiger Woods strides to the tee. He steps up first, powers a shot straight out. As he and fellow play-ers Dustin Johnson and Martin Kaymer start down off the tee box, Victoria Neziol cant help herself. A golfer and fan for many years, she has come down from Toronto, and, to players leaving the tee, she has been singing a cheerful, Good luck!Ž A few say thanks and smile back. This time, as Mr. Woods strides past, she shouts, Tiger, win! Win, Tiger, win!Ž People are seized, Sandy Hicks says, by the emotion of the moment, especial-ly when within arms reach of greatness or celebrity. They dont think much in that moment about rules, or about what made and keeps these players great, usually starting with the love and sup-port and sacrifice of families. The morning wave of players starting their rounds off Number One ends, and, after a break that gives Sandy and crew a welcome sit-down and a bite to eat (Sandy has a Power Bar), the afternoon wave washes in from the other side of the tee box, players who hazarded the back nine first. Often, this wave is harder to corral. Players might approach from the left, or they might walk around and come in from the right or from down the hill, spectators lapping at their heels. Today, at least, this time-of-day is quieter. That withdrawal of Rory McIlroy adds drama to their view across the course, where they catch sight of the masses swirling around Tiger. They dont want to promote any particular player, Sandy says, though they have their own favorites, but they would be pleased if Mr. Woods would kindly make the cut, just bumped from one under to even par, and play the final two days. With a tremendous sand-save for a par at 18, he does. The crew at Hole One will see him and his retinue tomorrow. Like him, theyll be glad to get there. Early in the week is toughest, Sandy says. Up at 4 a.m. for her drive down from Stuart, staying until past 4 p.m. Among other things, she keeps the work schedule, sometimes scrambling for help. Her own name has an X on every day. They also know that those above them in even longer hours. Jim Coleman, who works, as he says, in real lifeŽ as an electrical c ontractor, reported for duty in September. Those above them start planning for next year on the Monday after the tournament ends. For the team at Hole One, the weekend brings later starts; she tells the team to report on Saturday at 8:30. It also can bring bigger crowds, higher energy, chances for bad weather. This afternoon stays cloudy and starts to cool downward through the 60s. Sandy looks down at her ankles, left bare by capris pants, and says, I think Ill wear the long pants tomorrow.Ž As the last six groups shift through, the team at Number One can enjoy the smaller moments, such as a young man named Conner, on his ninth birthday, joining another volunteer, his father, John, as a standard-bearer. Hell be carrying it a couple of holes,Ž his father promises. They can appreciate the determination and good will of the last players, too, who know they wont be back for the weekend. This crew will. Through sunny and windier days, the volunteers at Number One will hazard the crowds, will shelter the players, will keep the peace. They will leave with passes good for two rounds of golf on one of PGA Nationals five courses; leave with the sight of young Michael Thompson raising the glass winners trophy; with aches and pains, and with a feeling of satisfaction. We know were doing this for charity, for children,Ž Sandy Hicks says. And being out here with the spectators, with the players, with each other.... I get tired, but I always get exited again.Ž They hope that amid the flurry of new technology and temptations to party, onlookers will be charitable, too, and tuck their mobile devices where the sun and wind, and the vigilant gaze of mar-shals, wont reach.

Along the way, she has come to know generations of dolphins by the names she has given them: Little Gash (her fin has a split), Rosemole, Romeo and Rosebud. Their undersea world is a place that has fascinated her since she was a girl. Its really simple. I grew up in Minnesota, where we have a lot of lakes, right? And when I was, like, 10, 11 years old „ that was the time when Jacques Cousteau was on TV „ so all of a sud-den Underworld World is in the living room. And people like Jane Goodall and Jane Fosse were out studying pri-mates,Ž she says over lunch near her office in Jupiter. So I literally „ this is what I remember „ I used to page through my Encyclopaedia Brittanica set „ in those days, we had books, right? Instead of the Internet. And I always would stop on the whale and dolphin page,Ž she says. Dr. Herzing saw a connection between primates and the great marine mammals. And I always would go, What in the hell are they doing with those big brains in the water. Theyre social mammals. Theyre like chimps, but they dont have the things we have,Ž she says, referring to human physi-cal characteristics. But what are they doing with those big brains?Ž That got her to thinking.I wondered if they could do with dolphins what they were doing with primates.Ž Dr. Herzing, founder of The Wild Dolphin Project, has made that her lifes work. Since 1985, she has journeyed to the Bahamas, where she has collected a database of underwater sounds and behaviors from that free-ranging com-munity of dolphins. So far, she has followed three generations. She had a college counselor to thank for sending her down that path. I had started my first year of college in Minnesota, where I grew up. There was no marine biology there. I was doing biology. And he said, You prob-ably should get in the mud and see if you like it.Ž She went to Oregon, applied to schools that offered marine biology classes, and worked with harbor seals, sea lions and whales. Her Ph.D. fol-lowed, and Dr. Herzing found herself in the Atlantic Ocean near the Baha-mas. Then she met the wild dolphins, Stenella frontalis. It was kind of like a dream, actually,Ž she says. Seriously, crystal-clear water. Two dolphins, a mom and a calf, come up to me. They just kind of look at you. And you go, Oh, this is a wild animal. I didnt know who they were. I didnt know their relationships, or their behavior. It was just like two semi-intelligent creatures kind of look-ing at each other going, Hmmm. Who are you? You just want to know more.Ž It did not take long for them to become acquainted. Twenty-eight years later, Dr. Herzing has tracked three generations of spot-ted dolphins. The calves she encountered in the 80s are now parents and grandparents. A wild dolphin typically can reproduce until it is in its 40s; a female may give birth to up to 10 calves over the course of two or three decades. Last year, the researchers tracked 10 new calves. Ive watched them grow up and become grandmothers,Ž she says. They track paternity by checking the DNA from dolphin fecal matter. And it is through that she has been able to track relationships. What was really funny, after I had been out in our location for 10-plus years, Id get in the water and Id see Stubby or Little Gash, Id look at them and not only know they were adults and about 10 years old, and know their spot pattern or ages. And realize, Oh, you know Knuckles and you had two babies.ŽDeveloping relationshipsThat familiarity is instrumental in being able to conduct research on the Stenella. Part of Dr. Herzings mission is to observe. That is, to allow the dolphins to get used to her presence to the point in which they go about their lives with a minimum of human interference, and she can build trust with the dolphin pod and record information in the most natural setting possible. Discipline is key, both for dolphins and humans. Members of a pod will punish errant dolphins by holding them down on the bottom of the sea so they cannot breathe. A mother may hold her calf up out of the water. The reasoning? Calves who stray from the pod are shark bait. Her motto: In their world, on their terms.Ž Its a challenge. Its how do you maintain the integrity of the animals and still share the information,Ž she says. Its one reason we try not to give our location away specifically.Ž The area is shallow enough that there is no cruise-ship traffic, but its open ocean and far enough out that small craft do not typically venture that far from shore. You cannot just jump in the water with these creatures; its illegal unless you have a permit. Not every dolphin wants to interact with a human. Thats an image you get from SeaWorld. Thats not what hap-pens,Ž she says. Its easy to forget something: They have interesting lives without us in the wild.Ž What about SeaWorld and other parks? I think theyre a reality right now, that they exist, but they are in sore need of improving their practices and their images of the animals. I dont condone the entertainment part. I think jumping through hoops and hav-ing a man riding the back of an orca and pulling people through the water, I think is really ridiculous. I dont think it does anything to further our understanding as who they are,Ž she says. The education component of theme parks is minimal, Dr. Herzing says. You can create awareness in a lot of different ways and you dont have to have an animal jumping through a hoop,Ž she says. And particularly most alarming: In many countries throughout the Carib-bean, it is not illegal to round up wild dolphins for use in theme parks, or in mall aquariums. Some hunters will kill the animals they do not use. The past is the past. The question is what do you do now?Ž she says.On the seaWhat do you do now?That is the question Dr. Herzing often ponders during her 16-hour workdays on the sea. Its long days looking for animals or being in the water, getting ear-aches, trying to stuff a sandwich in your mouth. Were in the water until 9 oclock at night sometimes, when theres good weather and good light. But youve got to get it when its good,Ž she says. The 62-foot Stenella typically is out to sea from May through August. Inside, the catamaran offers a comfortable space, with a central salon and kitchen and dormitory-type cabins with bunks for the five or six paying guests who help Dr. Herzing with her research „ maybe 20 to 30 over the course of a summer. It costs $2,895 to join one of the 10-day voyages, and the trips typically are sold out months in advance. It is very much a working trip for guests, who are expected to assist in research. That includes participating in daily dolphin watches and assisting in the identification of dolphins from pho-tographs and video, both in the water and during the reviews of the days video. It is an exhausting process. I sleep when I come home,Ž she says. The eight months or so she is not on the water, Dr. Herzing calls Juno Beach home. The Stenella undergoes maintenance in its home at Riviera Beach Marina. Computers get overhauled, too. Saltwater and electronics are not a good mix. In 2011, she wrote a book, Dolphin Diaries: My 25 Years with Spotted Dol-phins in the Bahamas.Ž From her office in Jupiter, Dr. Herzing analyzes data, works on video, writes grants, works with her interns and performs lectures „ everything it takes to get out there.Ž That includes dispelling some myths. Remember how Flipper always chirped on his 1960s television series? Its complete fiction. Come up, get a fish? They dont do that at all in the wild,Ž she says. That chirp-ing sound actually was cre-ated by Mel Blanc, famous for the voices of Bugs Bunny and other cartoon characters. She also makes time for fund-raising: The public can meet Dr. Herzing and artists during Wild Dol-phins: An Underwater Por-traitŽ art showing March 8-22 at Blue Water Editions, south of Stuart. Artwork will be for sale. Money raised can help bring Dr. Herzing and her team closer to her dream: cracking the code and to holding conversations with dolphins. Technology may help. The computers job is to help make sense of those sounds and those pat-terns of sounds. And they have had some success in getting the mammals to respond to calls and to play a specially built key-board. Its hard to decode another species. I was a little nave when I began,Ž she says, laughing. Still, Dr. Herzing tries to be realistic in her expectations. Id be happy if I showed some more detailed complexity,Ž she says. Maybe cracking the code is the wrong word. ƒ I just would like to know what goes on their minds.Ž That is the age-old question between humans and other species. We understand their signals and they understand ours to some extent. But how do you bridge that gap?Ž Humans constantly try to bridge that gap between other cultures and languages, she reasons, so why not animals? Wouldnt be cool to decode it? You know theyre saying a lot of stuff to each other. What does that mean? Thats where the real mystery is.Ž Q DOLPHINFrom page 1 >> What: “Wild Dolphins: An Underwater Portrait” art showing, with works by Ruth Petzold, Lisa Keeney, Tanya Burnett, Mike Bacon, Chris Traughber and Patricia Weyer. >> When: March 8-22.

MacArthur Beach State Park and Palm Beach County Environmental Resource Management (ERM) are part-nering to offer the annual NatureScap-ing and Dark Skies Festival on Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Park entrance will be free for the event. NatureScaping is an established event at MacArthur Beach State Park, with an average of 2,000 attendees. The event was developed 18 years ago to promote environmental education, support the planting of native species, and to provide an enjoyable day at the park for all ages. “We are excited to partner with ERM and include education on light pollu-tion to our goals for the event,” Don Bergeron, park manager, said in a pre-pared statement. “It is important in this area that we understand light pollution and how it affects our environment, and in particular how it affects our sea turtle population.” In addition to learning about the envi-ronment and the importance of living a green lifestyle, there will be live music, astronomy activities, a live animal show, and children’s programs. A special guest speaker, Gary Dahlke from the Cape Canaveral NASA Speaker Series, will be discussing the “Seven Wonders of the Universe.” The park will also display the finalists of a photography contest in the Educa-tion Gallery, and attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites. Winners will be announced later in the afternoon. John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, Palm Beach County’s only state park, is situated on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lake Worth Lagoon. The park is made up of 438 acres of coastal land and contains four different habitats, including seven spe-cies of plants and twenty-two species of animals on the endangered or threat-ened list. Q Mounts offers instruction on herbs, tree-pruning SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach is offering two educational programs geared to home gardeners. The first, “Edible Well-Being from the Garden,” will be held Saturday, March 9 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in Exhibit Hall A and outside in the garden. Led by Donnie Brown and Meg Vandereedt of the Eve-ning Herb Society, the class will include demonstrations, tastings, and talks on the versatility of herbs. Participants will discuss how medicinal, fragrant, health and culinary herbs can be used in teas, tonics and recipes. An aromatherapy expert will teach a segment on how to incorporate essen-tial oils into daily life. The cost for this class is $35 for members, $45 for non-members. There will also be an opportunity to stock up on herb plants, herbal items and essential oils.“Tree Pruning for Homeowners” is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Mounts Auditorium and the garden. Laura Sanagorski, Palm Beach County environmental horticulture agent, will speak on enhancing the beauty, struc-tural integrity and longevity of your trees. This workshop indoors begins indoors with a presentation on pruning concepts. Out in the garden, partici-pants will watch a demonstration and later practice their new-found skills. All those who attend the tree-pruning class should bring sharp, sanitized bypass pruners and a hand saw, or buy them at the Mounts shop. The cost for this program is $25 for members, $30 for non-members. Call 233-1757 to register for one or both programs. Q Maltz Theatre gala raises record $776,000 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s tenth annual gala, “The 10 Event Gala,” raised a record $776,000 for the not-for-profit theater, the Maltz said in a prepared statement. More than 550 people attended the sold-out benefit at the theater. Guests kicked off the evening in a glittering tent onsite at the theater, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres accom-panied by a classical guitarist. Then, a string quartet accompanied a gourmet dinner of beef tenderloin medallions, pan-seared black grouper, roasted red potatoes and butternut squash confetti, served inside a large ballroom within the tent, complete with chandeliers, sequined linens, voluminous feathers and the colors of silver, white and the “Maltz blue.” “The fact that this unique event sold out is a tribute to the quality and value that the Maltz Jupiter Theatre has brought to the community,” said Pamela Dyar, the theater’s associate director of development, in the statement. “The 10 Event Gala was both a historic celebra-tion of the past 10 seasons and an inspi-ration to our theater’s future. It was an exciting, joyful evening for a wonderful cause.” The event’s 10 Grand Benefactors were the Bebe Foundation, Joan and Allen Bildner, Roberta and Harvey Golub, Myra Hoffstein, Peggy and Rick Katz, Chris Kritikos, Pattie and Nate Light, Bonnie Osher, Diane and James E. Perrella and PNC. Organized by a gala committee and led by two board members — honor-ary producer Roe Green and chair-man Roberta E. Golub — a highlight of the evening occurred when Ms. Green announced that the Roe Green Founda-tion is giving the $1.5 million toward a $2.5 million capital campaign. To complete the planned renovations prior to the start of its 2013/14 season, the not-for-profit theater is working to raise additional funds by March 28. Q

Heading into the legislative session, law-makers were confident, This will be the year, as they claimed the congressio-nal climate feels less sluggish and more promising, more poised to pass a law regarding the issue. But traffic safety professionals worried that by the time the Legislature agrees on a bill, it may be too watered down with amendments to do any good. All-in-all the tone surrounding texting-while-driving legislation seemed to be resonating around two sentiments: Somethings better than nothing,Ž and Weve got to start somewhere.Ž We are working together as a team in the Florida Legislature, Democrats and Republicans alike, to do something about texting and driving,Ž State Rep. Irv Slosberg says. Im not quite sure what it will look like yet, but we are going to do something.Ž Rep. Slosberg was instrumental in passing the state seatbelt law. He lost his daughter, Dori, to the road. She was not wearing her seatbelt. He passed the law in her honor. Now the Boca Raton Democrat has his sights set on texting and driving. It sort of feels like the same thing,Ž he says of the path to safety-belt and anti-texting legislation. The seatbelt law was blocked for years by a couple people. It was totally ridiculous. Thousands of people died unnecessarily. It was blocked and blocked and blocked until finally, it passed. Its amazing that Ive got to battle over public safety like this. You would think its a no-brainer, but its very dif-ficult.Ž For the past couple years, Rep. Slosberg feels any bills geared to regulate texting while driving were brought to a halt by former Speaker of the House Dean Canon and his cohort, former Sen-ator Ellyn Bogdanoff. Canon and Bogdanoff kept bottling up all the bills,Ž he says. They wouldnt let them out of the drawer for a vote.Ž But Ms. Bogdanoff was beat out by Maria Sachs for her Senate seat and new Speak-er Will Weatherford now delegates the House. Rep. Slosberg finds this change refreshing, saying, We have a new day in the Florida Legislature.Ž Rep. Slosberg has filed two bills with texting stipulations. One provides that any person who causes a fatal crash while using an electronic device will have committed vehicular homicide. The other prohibits drivers under age 18 from using their cell phones „ no talking, no texting „ unless theyre pulled over on the side of the road. Similar bills are making their way through the Leg-islature but the one picking up the most steam would be Senate Bill 52, proposed by Sena-tor Nancy Detert, R-Venice. The only bill yet to pass the transportation com-mittee, Senate Bill 52 would make texting while driving a secondary offense. This means text-messaging drivers must be caught swerving in and out of their lane, running a red light or some other offense before officers can tack on a texting vio-lation. Texting drivers would be charged a $30 fine for a first-time offense, $60 if theyre caught texting and driving again within five years. Amendments allow texting while stopped at traffic lights or stuck in traffic jams. Anticipating the fate of these bills, Rep. Slosberg says, Maybe my bill will move, ma ybe her bill will move ƒ Somethings got to give.Ž He understands amendments may make legislative inten-tions less than ideal, conceding, Well take a little bite out of the apple. Well come back next year and take a bigger bite out of the apple. Weve got to start somewhere.Ž Traffic safety professional Jay Anderson says sheriffs, police chiefs, they all endorse these bills, but behind closed doors theyre asking, How are we going to enforce this?ŽMr. Anderson makes up a scenario where someone has been pulled over for speeding, the officer observes a cell phone in their hand, questions if they were tex-ting, to which the driver replies: No, offi-cer. I was expecting a call. I was dialing a number. I was checking my GPS.ŽMr. Anderson plays out this offensive driving scenario, reasoning: They lie now when theyre involved in a crash. Theyll lie when theyre charged with distracted driving. What makes you think theyll be honest when theyre stopped by a police officer?Ž As the executive director of the Fort Myers based, safe-driving nonprofit he founded, Stay Alive ƒ Just Drive!Ž Mr. Anderson has dedicated his life to fight for cell-phone-free driving. Traveling across the state, he shares the story of a young girl in a wheelchair, a girl who can breathe but can no longer speak. A car accident potentially involving a cell phone turned her mother into her caregiver. He shares the story of another mother who now goes from high school to high school, pleading: Please dont text and drive. My daughter died a preventable death.Ž These families want to see a universal law against the use of cell phones while driving. So how do they feel about the texting bill making progress in the Legis-lature? Mr. Anderson says it straight: Its a compromise. Its better than nothing.Ž Mr. Anderson would like to see an outright ban of the use of all electron-ic devices while driving. He does not see the legislative climate as promis-ing, but frustrating, puzzling, wondering why lawmakers dont make a stronger attempt to ban the behavior. There are folks who believe this comes down to personal responsibil-ity, but what they fail to understand, by engaging in this behavior you are jeopardizing others,Ž Mr. Anderson says. It goes way beyond personal respon-sibility. We know this behavior is more than dangerous, its deadly ƒ If everyone accepted personal responsibility, there would be no need for speed limits, traffic signals or lines on the road.Ž Mr. Anderson says the scariest thing about all this, even amidst all this talk about dont text and drive, he sees more and more drivers sitting at intersections with their phones in their hands, not shutting them off, but texting away.

A18 WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Alterations & Tailor StudioMaking outsourcing work for youA Verizon risk team, looking for data breaches on a clients computers, dis-covered that one company software developer was basically idle for many months, yet remained productive „ because he had outsourced his proj-ects to a Chinese software developer who would do all the work and send it back. The employee earned several hun-dred thousand dollars a year, accord-ing to a January Los Angeles Times report, but paid the Chinese worker only about $50,000. The risk team even-tually learned that sensitive company information was flowing to and from Chinese terminals, leading the com-pany to suspect hackers, but that traffic was merely the U.S. employee (obvi-ously, ex-employeeŽ now) sending and receiving his workload. The U.S. man showed up for work every day, but spent his time leisurely web-surfing. Q The entrepreneurial spiritQ One of Britains most famous madamsŽ announced in January that she was coming out of retirement to set up a brothel exclusively catering to dis-abled people and the terminally ill. An ordinary brothel would be illegal in the town of Milton Keynes (45 miles from London), but Becky Adams insists that the government could not shut hers down without illegally discriminating against the disabled. Q In January, the Japanese marketing firm Wit Inc. began hiring popularŽ young women (judged by the extent of their social networkŽ contacts), at the equivalent of $121 a day, to walk around with advertising stickers on their thighs. (The stickers would be placed on the erotic zettai ryouikiŽ „ the Japanese mystical area between the hem of a short skirt and the top of long socks.) The women must be prepared to endure men hovering closely to read the ads. Q According to news reports in November, New York City physician Jack Berdy was doing a brisk business administering Botox injections (at up to $800) to poker players who were hoping to prevent facial expressions that might tip their hands. Q Londons The Independent reported in January that Dean Kamen (who famously invented the Segway, a stand-ing, battery-powered scooter) had devel-oped, along with a Penn sylv ania medical team, what appears to work as a reverse feeding tubeŽ that will vacuum out up to 30 percent of any food in the stomach before it is digested and converted into calories. After installation of the stomach port,Ž the diner could operate the device without daily medical help. Q The Polish cosmetics company Inglot announced in January a nail pol-ish ideal for Muslim women, in that it can withstand the five-times-daily hand-washing required for prayers. (Normally, devout women wear nail polish only during their menstrual periods, when the hand-washing is not required, but polish thus signals menstruation and therefore embarrasses modest women.) Q Advances in animal researchQ Scientists from Swedens Lund University, reporting in a recent issue of Cur-rent Biology, explored the burning ques-tion of why dung beetles appear to be dancingŽ on the tops of the dung balls they roll away. The answer is that the beetles need to roll their treasures away from the heap as quickly as possible (lest competitors swipe them) and that they can best maintain a straight line away by celestial navigation. To test the hypothesis, researchers actually outfitted some beetles with tiny visors to block their view of the sky, and those beetles mostly rolled their balls in irregular routes, whereas the skysearching beetles moved in straight lines.Q Japanese researchers learned recently that a species of sea slug may lose its penis after copulating, but then grow another one and use it the next time the occasion arises. Writing in the British journal Biology Letters, the scientists also found that the slugs have both male and female organs and in effect copulate with each other through a simultaneous hook-up. A final breath-taking finding of the team was that the sea slugs penis has the ability to remove competitors sperm from the female openings of its mate. Q Leading economic indicatorsQ In January, the National Hockey League labor dispute ended and play-ers returned to work, but as usual, some owners resumed claiming that players high salaries were killing them finan-cially. The Phoenix Business Journal reported in December that the Phoenix Coyotes, for example, stood to turn a profit for the 2012-2013 season only if the lockout had continued and wiped out all the games „ indicating that, based on the teams projections, the only way for it to make money was to never play. Q In the Czech Republic, per-capita beer consumption is twice that in the United States, and competition is such that some beers are priced lower than any other beverage, including water. (The brewery Pizensky Prazdroj delivers beer in tanker trucks that in the U.S. might deliver gasoline, and delivers it to pubs storage tanks just as U.S. gas station have storage tanks.) Recently, concerned about overconsumption, the countrys health minister proposed to prohibit restaurants and bars from offering a beer as the lowest-priced drink, per ounce. Q In January about 1,000 workers at Shanghais Shinmei Electric Co. held 18 managers captive at the plant from Fri-day morning until nearly midnight on Saturday in protest of recent employee rules. The workers dispersed when par-ent company officials promised to recon-sider the policies, which included a fine of the equivalent of about $8 for being late and a limit of two minutes per toilet break. Q Religious symbolismOn Jan. 27, Pope Benedict XVI released two doves in St. Peters Square at the Vaticans end-of-prayers ceremo-ny, but almost immediately, a gull flew over and attacked one. (The faithful were rewarded, though, as the d ove, though wounded, managed to elude the irreligious predator.) Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

This program can help you restore your health and regain confidence, with a proven long-term weight-loss solution.Ž Surgical options, such as Lap-Band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass, involve modifying the stomach, intestines or both, to decrease the amount of food that is consumed; some procedures alter the bodys absorption of food.

Clay shooting invitational to benefit Place of Hope SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNot long ago, the nation focused its attention on images of President Obama shooting clay pigeons at Camp David. Now Place of Hope invites the rest of us to experience this com-petitive, fast-growing pastime during its Inau-gural Sporting Clays Invitational Fun Shoot. The event begins at 7:45 a.m. on Friday, March 22, at the South Florida Shooting Club in Palm City. All pro-ceeds will benefit Place of Hope, a faith-based, state-licensed child welfare organization in Palm Beach Gardens. We are excited to be hosting the Place of Hope Fun Shoot,Ž says Doug Vine, gen-eral manager of the South Florida Shoot-ing Club, in a prepared statement. Its a great opportunity for all of us to have some fun and be a part of raising money for such a great cause in our community. We encourage everyone to come out and join us, while getting a taste of sporting clays and benefiting the Place of Hope.Ž Sponsored by BMO Private Bank, Palm Beach Motor Cars, Palm Beach Kennel Club, Cheney Brothers and Palmdale Oil Company, the Fun Shoot will feature team and individual competitors and a catered lunch. The event is co-chaired by Mark Simpson of Palm Beach Motor Cars and John Tinnemeyer of BMO Pri-vate Bank. Clay shooting is the art of shooting at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets, with a shotgun. The activity, which requires patience, timing and coordination, is growing in popularity as a fundraising event among outdoor enthusiasts. The donation to register a four-person team in the Fun Shoot is $1,000. Corpo-rate registration is available for $2,000, which includes advertising opportuni-ties. A lunch will follow the event, which also will feature both live and silent auctions.Clay shoots are now being used for political fundraisers and charities of all sorts; there are youth shoots, beginner shoots and womens shoots. Sporting clays started in the early 1980s and has spread world-wide faster in popularity than golf at the begin-ning of the 20th cen-tury. Its a very engaging sport. Breaking a clay target is as exciting as hitting the greens on your fairway shot,Ž says Mr. Simpson, who is also an avid golfer. I have not met one person who Ive introduced to sporting clays who didnt love it, not one. It takes some time, but as soon as you hit your first clay, you will jump for joy, and it will 100 percent spark your interest.Ž The proceeds of this event will directly support the mission of Place of Hope,Ž says Charles Bender, its executive director. In the last decade, Place of Hope has grown from one family cottage to six cottages, the Seven Stars Emer-gency Shelter for boys, Joanns Cottage for pregnant teens, Villages of Hope for emancipated foster youth, and Homes of Hope for foster care and adoption place-ment and support.ŽLocated at 9078 Isaiah Lane in Palm Beach Gardens, Place of Hope is provides family-style foster care (emergency and long-term); family outreach and interven-tion; maternity care; safety for domestic minor sexually trafficked victims; tran-sitional housing and support services; adoption and foster care recruitment and support; and hope and healing for chil-dren and families who have been trauma-tized by abuse and neglect. South Florida Shooting Club is located at 500 Southwest Long Drive, Palm City.

The one-mile walk begins at 10 a.m. There is no registration fee, but donations are encouraged. Walkers who con-tribute at least $30 will receive a Walk for the Animals T-shirt and a doggie bandana, and will have the chance to receive special recognition and prizes including resort stays and airfare. The first 1,200 registered walkers each will receive a Schumacher Volkswagen back-pack filled with goodies. The Pet Groomerie will host a celebrity pet wash, and a number of pet contests (most creative, best-dressed, owner/pet lookalike) are planned. According to a prepared statement, the event also will provide opportunities to learn about micro-chipping, pet vaccinations, pet adoptions and CPR for animals. To pre-register as an individual or team, visit www.hspb.org. Registration is also available on the day of the event. All donations directly support the services and programs to help animals in need. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League provides services to over 20,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year. Operating continuously since 1925, the organization has been positively impacting animal welfare and address-ing overpopulation in Palm Beach County through a variety of services. Its vision is to create a community where 100 percent of the adoptable animals find loving homes and no animals will be euthanized because of pet overpopu-lation. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and does not receive funding from city, county, state, or the federal government, or local organizations with similar names. It relies solely on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corpora-tions to provide quality programs and services to the community. Q Gulfstream Goodwill’s Friedkin earns counseling credential SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYRichard Friedkin, Social Security benefits planner for Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, Inc., has been certified as a Community Part-ner Work Incentives Counselor (CWIC). In this role, Mr. Friedkin can coun-sel recipients of Social Security dis-ability benefits about work incentives that allow those benefits to phase out gradually during an individuals tran-sition back into the workforce. Many Social Security disability beneficiaries fear that returning to work will cause immediate loss of benefits and medi-cal insurance. According to a prepared statement from Gulfstream Goodwill, CWIC counseling can overcome this misconception. It is a vital part of Gulfstream Goodwill Industries mission to assist people with disabilities and other barriers to become self-sufficient, working mem-bers of the community. I cant stress enough the significance of Richards certification to those in our community who desperately need his counsel relat-ing to Social Security disability ben-efits,Ž Gulfstream Goodwill Industries Vice President Kathy Spencer said in the prepared statement.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGWhen a loved one is in emotional trouble, here’s how to helpEllen slammed the phone in a rage. How dare Carol imply that Ellen was crazy? Of course, Carol was far too clever to say those exact words, but Ellen could just tell what her sister was thinking. She hated Car ols holier than thou, superior attitude when she spoke: Youre under so much stress. I think it would be helpful for you to speak with a therapist.Ž Ellen mimicked Carols words to herself with disgust. Lately, Ellen had been embroiled in angry altercations with several family members. After a while, she couldnt even recall what the disputed issues were. Ellen wished she hadnt called Carol in tears each time, beg-ging Carol to take her side. Carol had urged her to calm down, but that had infuriated Ellen even more. She wouldnt let the mat-ter go, and continued to call Carol day and night, trying to rehash the discussion, even though Carol had told her to please let the whole thing go. Ellen could never admit this to her sister, but she was deeply ashamed and frightened by her angry outbursts and inability to control her emotions. She knew the people around her were horrified by her erratic behavior and many had even suggested she seek professional help. It embarrassed her that everyone she knew seemed so much better equipped to handle their day-to-day responsibilities. Ellen felt so vulnerable and alone, but she was unable to recognize the severity of her illness. She lashed out instead to save face. Friends, lets get to the heart of the matter: In one way or another, most of our lives have been touched by mental illness. We may have difficulty admitting this to our-selves. And, we may find the truth to be too frightening or shameful to accept. In many ways it may be easier to dismiss or deny the troubling behaviors around us than it is to confront them directly. So much of the time, we truly believe theres nothing we can do to make a significant difference. In times of acute stress, or when they are struggling with the symptoms of their emotional illness, its not uncommon for those suffering to lash out with anger, become accusatory or act hurtfully to those they care most about. Not able to recognize, contain or properly express their panic, sad-ness or fears, many times these individuals act unfairly towards the very people they are most counting on. They may refuse our efforts to be helpful, or deny theyre in need of assistance. None of us take kindly to being spoken to abusively or being rebuffed, so its not uncommon for us to respond in kind „ getting angry, or retaliating with hurtful words of our own. Rather than showing compassion or exercising restraint we often respond with vitriol. But we must step away from the situation to recognize when our loved ones are behaving irrationally, and are in serious need of professional help. Often when we suggest that our loved ones get emotional help, they misunder-stand our well-meaning intentions. Often they are not thinking clearly and dont see how detrimental their behavior is. They are no doubt in excruciating pain, and per-haps filled with self-loathing and self-doubt. They may become hyper-vigilant to detect if we are being judgmental, worrying that we believe they are defective in some way. Some of us become so worried we wont know the right thing to say in tough situa-tions, that we back off and say nothing at all to the upset person. The most important principle to communicate, at all times, is ACCEPTANCE and respect. It often agitates our loved ones when we try to reasonŽ with them or talk them out of their upset mood. When theyre hurting, they need us to understand the enormity of their upset. If they feel we are minimizing their concerns they might become offended and clam up. And what if the troubled person is our child? Again, sensitivity is key. Starting off the discussion by saying: Whats the matter with you?Ž will obviously put them on the defensive. Were likely to get a sullen or sar-castic, hostile response, which may trigger us to respond with words well later regret. Sometimes, we believe its helpful to say: Dont worry. Everything will be all right.Ž While reassurance can at times be very comforting, theres the risk the person will feel dismissed. Saying: You are clearly so distressed. I am here for you if youd like to discuss itŽ validates that we understand this is a very important matter to them. While they may feel ostracized if we attempt to label their problems or suggest they go for therapy, they may be receptive if we focus on specific stress-related symp-toms. They may reject going for help for their emotional problems, but they may be willing to go to their physician for physical signs of stress, exhaustion or insomnia. We can then encourage them to speak candidly about their day-to-day lives, while they are addressing medical matters. In addition, it sometimes helps to enlist the aid of a trust-ed family member or friend to intervene when relationships have become polarized or theres a stalemate. Its often helpful to find a means of universalizing the human experience by letting the other person know weve had some rough challenges as well. If we share how weve reached out for help in the past, and the positive difference it made, we may be instrumental in reducing their shame. However, we must be careful not to sound insensitive or trivialize their concerns by implying weve been through something bigger. It may be helpful to remember that much of the time emotionally troubled people are not able to control their moods or behavior, and that there are limits of what THEY can do and what WE can do to make things better. Having said that, there are realistic steps that can be taken. In many cases, with patience and ongoing support, the situation can be improved significantly. Unfortunately, there are some occasions where everyones safety may be at risk. Some forceful steps may then be necessary to take charge of the situation. Laypeo-ple often feel overwhelmed when they are forced to evaluate whether a family member is in serious jeopardy, and which behaviors require serious intervention. But there may be no choice but to call 911 or to escort our loved one to the nearest emergency room. The following are signs for serious concern: 1. Reason to believe the person is an acute risk to harm themselves or others (and of especially dangerous concern is if there is evidence they have the means to follow through.) 2. If they are behaving bizarrely, are seriously confused or disoriented, or show disturbing signs of depression or manic behavior. 3. If its clear they are delusional, or hear voices, especially if the voices are instruct-ing them to hurt themselves or others. 4. If they show signs of severe or uncontrollable agitation. 5. If their angry outbursts are frightening and seem to be out of control. Obviously, this is a judgment call, but when in doubt, its probably advisable to involve professionals for emergency assis-tance. Of course, theres always the concern that the troubled person will become furi-ous and resent the actions of their families. Sadly, the decision required is to consider both options and weigh the consequences of intervening in the quest for safety versus the repercussion of being blamed for step-ping in. Family members are in the unenvi-able position of choosing between no-win options. And, throughout all of this, its very important that we step back and consider our own feelings. Its a given that we may be worried about our family member. But, we may have reached out to offer support over and over again, with little consider-ation for OUR feelings. As time passes, its exhausting to carry this heartache and worry without much relief. We may also be angry, frustrated and hurt, but hold the feel-ings inside for fear of antagonizing, or bur-dening our loved one. Remembering, that our efforts may ultimately be appreciated should the situation impr ove, may seem like weak consolation. Ill conclude by sharing the words of a wise professor. She reminded our class that the ones whom we like the least, and upset us the most with disruptive, offensive behavior are often the ones who most need our compassion and support.Ž Over the years, this insight has enabled me to remain calm and effective in the face of conflict and escalating volatility.

It is the only one in Palm Beach County in a medical facil-ity. The center serves as a diagnostic, treatment and referral center for indi-viduals who are experiencing changes in their memory and/or other cognitive functions, which may be affecting their daily lives. Some slowing of thought processes and mild memory lapses may come with aging. When it becomes progres-sively worse and interferes with daily life, such as loss of interest in usual activities, personality changes, and dif-ficulty performing daily tasks, the need for a medical evaluation is indicated. Conditions that may cause memory loss include: Adverse medication effects Stroke Thyroid or Vitamin B12 deficiency Parkinsons disease Depression Alzheimers Disease Other neurological diseases Early diagnosis is essential to determine the cause of memory loss and to begin effective treatment. Our multi-disciplinary team of professionals con-sists of experts from various fields of expertise. They work together to assess and treat the cause of each individuals memory concerns. A typical medical evaluation may include: Taking a health history and completing a physical examination to rule out treatable conditions. Performing a neurological evaluation to check the patients balance, sensory abilities or reflexes. Reviewing results from laboratory tests to exclude possible metabolic con-ditions or vitamin deficiencies. Using cognitive or neuropsychological tests to evaluate mental functions. Performing brain scans using MRI or CT Scans. Obtaining a complete memory history and functional assessment. Our multi-disciplinary team then reviews the findings of the memory loss evaluation and compiles a diagnosis and possible treatment options. Upon completion of the diagnostic process, the team meets with the family and patient to discuss the findings and con-clusions. Working closely with the primary care physician, treatment is commenced and follow-up visits are arranged to evaluate progress and review treatment. Memory loss disorders are an ongo-ing obstacle, which is why St. Marys Memory Disorder Center is committed to giving our patients comprehensive evaluations, lifestyle management tools and support to help them carry out their daily lives. Memory disorders can be very hard for patients and family members to cope with. St. Marys has teamed up with MindSet, a new and emerging class to exercise your brain and improve brain health. MindSet is a series of six 90-minute classes. The classes are tar-geted to those with early stage memory loss and to the caregivers of the ones diagnosed with a memory loss disorder. Each class, taught by a trained instructor, will consist of: Specific brain exercises to help with brain function. Tools for organizing information and daily activities. Strategies to improve communication and support. Opportunities to learn and meet others dealing with memory issues. This class is a great way to realize that you are not alone when it comes to memory loss disorders. For more information or for a free memory loss screening, call 882-6363.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGLooking for a solid investment? You can find it at Value ForumNeed investment income? Consider the Value Forum website. There are many challenges that professional and self-styled investors face in a prolonged zero interest rate environ-ment. Primary among them is finding reasonable income streams while taking reasonable risks. In 2009, most investors accepted low rates as an inconvenient but necessary Federal Reserve tool to spark the econ-omy. However, those investors with a need for income are now exasperated by a five-year stint of zero rates that the Fed threatens to continue into infinity. So, the hunt for yield is on! But where are solu-tions to be found? The well-beaten path offers non-solutions for those needing higher yields. A 3 percent dividend yield on U.S. big cap stocks, 4 percent yield on 10-year sover-eigns, 6 percent yield on the junk bonds, etc. These work no charm for retired couples who need 8 percent or more to keep the tires on their wheels. The vicissitudes of the stock market do not allow assurance of monthly payments of bills or sound sleep. Income investors seek out-of-the-box solutions: underval-ued companies paying a rich dividend/distribution until such time as analysts and institutional portfolio managers per-ceive such value and bid up the company. Income paired with value is often found in stocks/preferreds of companies too small for the big players or too complex for most to unravel. Finding these investment gems requires: keen minds; courage to look at the unloved and complex stories; very good investment research; and top-notch analytics that drill down and hypothesize distributable cash flows, replacement value, accounting treatments, etc. It is unrealistic to think that solo investors can successfully undertake such a litany of tasks. A solution can be found in a cadre of seasoned professionals and seasoned do-it-yourself investors who individually bring some level of exper-tise, work product or insight to be shared with a much larger group. In my opinion, such a teamŽ existsƒon a website, for a nominal fee; it is called Value Forum, a very high caliber, investment group com-mitted to finding alternative sources of investment income and collaborating to that end. This group optionally: shares research, vets each others ideas (most often in a collegial style), discloses port-folio allocations, etc. Value Forum has been a topic of this column previously (Dec. 15, 2011, Getting A Little Help from Your Value Forum FriendsŽ; Nov. 21, 2012, The Process Is As Important As the InformationŽ). Started in 2003, Value Forum is a 1,400-member community of investors who manage a collective $3.5 billion of capital. Most are individuals over 55, with a sprinkling of hedge fund and money managers. Though the ideas there are largely driven by more seasoned inves-tors who sleuth for sectors and compa-nies on the brink of successful changes, novices and non-posting members are welcome. Not all contributions reflect rocket science; some can be as simple as, Went to JCPennyƒ seemed no one was in the storeŽ or I have a brother -in-law in the Bakken and he saysƒŽ There are a handful of posters whose research is outstanding; I make an effort to read their ramblings every day. As it stands, all of my equity positions in my personal portfolio have genesis in Value Forum postings. A great way to get in the Value Forum groove is to attend its annual conference, InvestFest, held April 18-21 at the Chap-arral Suites in Scottsdale, Ariz. You will get exposure to income propositions and strategies that dominate the website and meet some friendly folks who have not forgotten their more humble investment beginnings. The conference theme is Energize Your PortfolioŽ with an emphasis on dividend paying stocks and, in particu-lar, energy stocks. There is a sea change taking place in that sector: big (and get-ting bigger) U.S. energy production in Bakken and East Texas; delivery of these resources to Gulf Coast refineries by rail, barge, truck; new pipelines under con-struction (e.g., East Texas), possible new pipelines (e.g., Keystone) and reversal of Gulf Coast product pipelines; retrofitting of refineries to handle different blends; liquefaction of natural gas for export; a hotter than blazes rail car manufactur-ing business; etc. From my perspective, this energy shift is a several year story, has potential to create a true equity bull market and certainly will displace some companies and give rise to others. The energy sector presenters include: Mike Mercer, CFO of EV Energy Part-ners; William Schreier, portfolio manager of Infrastructure Energy Income Fund, a NYC Hedge Fund specializing in energy investments; Jonathan Hoopes, presi-dent of Green Hunter Energy; Sterling McDonald vice president of Evolution Petroleum; and Dan Steffens, president of Energy Prospectus. Much conference time will be devoted to the heavy, dividend paying AMRE-ITS/MREITS sector which sailed with the wind from 2009 to 2012 but now faces headwinds with stagnant (and pos-sibly rising) interest rates. Obviously, the focus will be on how book value can grow and dividends maintained. Value Forum members legitimized AMREITS/MREITS years before Wall Street got on the bandwagon. Presenters include: Gary Kain, CEO and CIO of AGNC and sister company MTGE, and Tom Akin, CEO of Dynex Capital. In panel form will be several institutional-grade REIT analysts: Merrill Ross from Wunderlich, Daniel Furtado from Jeffries, and Joel Houck from Wells Fargo Securities. And if you own any of John Fredriksens dividend paying companies (Seadrill, North Atlantic Drilling, Golar, Frontline, and more) then you will want to hear from some Value Forum members who eat, love and prayŽ Fredriksen. Nevertheless, Value Forum is my number one research pick for investors. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems. Contact her at 239-571-8896 or showalter@ wwfsyst ems.com. i s f r t g jeannette SHOWALTER CFA jshowaltercfa@yahoo.com Illinois studio carries on Higgins fused glass traditionFrances and Michael Higgins both went to art school, taught art and cre-ated art before they met at the Chicago Institute of Design. They were married in 1948. The couple decided to open their own studio to make fused (not blown) glass, a technique used in ancient times. Their pieces were marked HigginsŽ to represent both artists. Their glass was like a glass sandwich „ one piece coat-ed with enamel decoration, the other placed on top and heated until both pieces were fused together. Their work created a new type of colorful, well-designed glass that immediately became popular in gift shops. Each of the artists had a personal style. Frances liked to hand-paint designs; Michael used small pieces of glass to make designs. Michael was born in England in 1908 and died in 1999. Frances, born in 1912, was still working when she died in 2004. Higgins Glass Studio of Riverside, Ill., continues the couples tradition of making fused glass. It is run by artists trained by Michael and Frances. Vintage Higgins pieces are popular today with collectors, but because the studio still makes glass for department stores and gift shops, pieces can be found for mod-erate prices. The work is unique and recognized as artistic, yet early pieces are undervalued by both museums and collectors.Q: I bought a house built in the 1890s, and when I renovated the kitchen I found a jug inside a wall. No telling how long it had been there. Its 8 inches high and still has part of the label, which reads Mohawk Green Creme de Menthe, Made & Bottled by Mohawk Liqueur Corporation, Detroit, Michigan.Ž I would like to know if the company is still in business. A: Mohawk Liqueur Corp. was formed in 1933. In 1966 it was sold to 21 Brands, which became a subsid-iary of Foremost-McKesson in 1970. Mohawk was still in business until at least the 1980s. Q: We have an old violin that my husbands father played. It has a label inside that says Giovanni Paolo Mag-gini, Brescia, 16(60).Ž The first two num-bers are printed but the last two look like they were added in pencil. How old is the violin and where was it made? A: Giovanni Paolo Maggini (1580-c. 1630) made several different kinds of stringed instruments and was one of the most important makers in Brescia, Italy. His instruments are known for the quality of the woods, unusually large sound holes and mellow tone. Some have a crest, medallion, scene or other decorations on the back. His later instruments are considered his best. They usually have a double row of purfling, a deco-rative inlay, around the edge. Maggini made at least 60 violins. An origi-nal violin made by Giovanni Paolo Maggini could sell for several hundred thousand dollars, but reproductions have been made and sell for low prices. Q: I have a beautiful rock-maple dining set given to me by my husbands grandmother. The set includes four chairs, and the table has pullout extensions at each end. The table is 40 by 60 inches without the extensions. Its 96 inches long when the two extensions are pulled out. The bot-tom of the table is stamped Consider H. Willet, Manufacturer of Fine Furn., Lou-isville, Kentucky.Ž I would like to know more about this company and what my table and chairs might be worth. A: Consider H. Willett founded his furniture company in 1934. The com-pany made bedroom sets, bookcases, cabinets and other furniture in maple and cherry, as well as upholstered fur-niture. Pieces are marked with a metal tag or stamped with the name of the company. At one point, Willet was one of the largest producers of maple and cherry furniture in the United States. The company went bankrupt in 1962. Mass-produced furniture from the 1930s is low-priced. The value of your table and chairs may be about $400, $200 for the table and $50 per chair. Tip: To remove chewing gum from carpet or upholstery, put an ice cube in a ziptop plastic bag and set it on the gum. When the gum hardens, hit it with a hammer and it will break off.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com Love takes a walkIve often wondered if theres a correlation between walkable cities and beautiful people. Certainly the worlds most pedestrian-friendly places „ New York, Paris „ have a dispropor-tionate number of attractive people. What is it about walking that makes them so good-looking? Heres my guess: People who walk take extra care with how they look because they never know when they might cross a potential date, a risk we never run in cars. On a recent hectic morning, I stopped by the dry cleaners, look-ing as rough as the day felt. Instead of parking and going inside I opted for the drive-thru, and as I waited in my car for the attendant to fetch my clothes, it occurred to me how many of our modern conveniences never require us to leave our vehicles. We can order hamburgers, prescriptions and, in some places, booze without taking off our seat belts. This is brilliant,Ž I said to the woman who passed my clothes through the open car window. I never have to get dressed again.Ž She eyed me with a knowingly suspicious look, as if more than one customer had pulled in without her pants on. On the way home from the cleaners, I listened to a news segment on the radio about how some families are making the commitment to drive less and walk more. Theyre choosing neighborhoods with grocery stores, coffee shops and libraries within a walkable radius. In our obesity-sad-dled culture, they say its one way to stay fit. They say its better for the environment. What they dont say, but what I recently discovered, is that its an excellent way to meet people. Not long after the aforementioned dry-cleaning run I realized that many of the amenities I need to survive are within one mile of where I live. Sure, not my preferred grocery store and I might sweat a little in the heat, but a walkable lifestyle is surprisingly doable for me. So I gave it a shot. And regretted it immediately.The first time I stepped out, the sidewalk was empty. All the people in cars seemed to be staring at me while I waited at the intersection for the light to change. The sun glared down. I thought about turning back, but the farther I walked, the more people I passed. Then a surprising thing happened: Someone said hello. I smiled and he smiled and we both asked how the other was doing. Farther down someone else said, in passing, that he liked my shoes. In many dating advice books, the experts agree that one of the biggest challenges to finding love is actually meeting other people. In our modern American society, we keep to ourselves „ at home, at work, in our cars. We have few opportunities to cross paths with other human beings, much less datable ones. These same advice books tell us we need to get out more. Join a book group, they say, or a hik-ing club. Anything to bring us in proximity to the opposite sex. But as it turns out, the opposite sex is everywhere. Theyre on our sidewalks, walking our streets. All it takes to meet them is the courage to step outside.

With mesmerizing choreography, col-orful costumes, stunning animated backdrops, and tremendous athleticism, Shen Yun takes the audience on a journey through time and space to ancient lands, mountain peaks, and even heav-enly paradises.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYARTISTFrom page 1hang-where to consider, and now, at last, on this overly warm Wednesday morning, it has entered its final phase. Showtime looms. Its a lot, a lot, a lot of work,Ž Elizabeth Thompson says as she surveys the space where her solo art exhibit Sto-ries from the EvergladesŽ will fill the walls and, she hopes, enchant viewers and entice buyers. Im like a one-armed paperhanger here.Ž Workmen have painted three connected rooms a pale yellow-y beige up to their 21-foot-high ceiling and promised her a matching coat for the wrought-iron stair railing, over there on the right. Just now, from a soon-to-be-bathroom, theyre heaving shovel-fuls of dirt onto a blue tarp so that plumbing work can follow. Above their heads, a long, narrow window over-looks the main gallery, the perfect spot from which Ms. Thompson or her cho-sen representative can watch unobtru-sively, descending only to offer assis-tance in the form of background infor-mation, price list, sales help. An art dealer friend from New York „ shes wild about this spaceŽ „ advised her that, when people enter a gallery, they want to be alone with the art. Is there a risk of a painting being stolen?Ž Ms. Thompson asks construc-tion foreman Clay Wick. The small watercolors will be thereŽ „ she ges-tures south „ in the back room.Ž Mr. Wick, a fifth-generation Floridian who knows the area well, smiles and shakes his head. No,Ž he assures her. This is Palm Beach. Its well guarded. The police departments less than a mile away. There are wealthy people living here, famous people.Ž Ms. Thompsons concern is just a bit of last-minute countdown. This is a one-woman-show „ in every sense of the phrase. In New York last year, the Leila Heller Gallery in Chelsea oversaw all the myriad details. Here, she is artist and curator, promoter and gallery-prep-expert, all in one. Stories from the EvergladesŽ „ the show opened on March 5 and runs through April 5 in Palm Beachs Royal Poinciana Plaza „ is a true labor of love, a labor that began in 2006 when she was chosen as Everglades National Park artist-in-residence. Before she learned of it, just scooting around on the Internet,Ž she didnt know such a program existed. Acceptance came at a difficult time. Her husband of 30 years had just died. The notion of get-ting away offered solace. I needed to reboot,Ž she says. On her website, she writes: This meant that I lived alone in the swamp, in Spartan quarters, without phone, television or Internet. I was unpre-pared for the power of the experience. Initially, the possibility of an encounter with alligators, snakes, scorpions and panthers was terrifying. As the time for my adventure drew near, it was the reality of living alone in the wilderness (with the exception of the park Rang-ers with whom I slogged through the swamps), that was truly scary.Ž Uneasy at first, she settled into her half of a spare, single-story duplex in Royal Palm State Park. It was mod-estly equipped „ a washer and dryer required venturing out across an open expanse, where goodness-kn ew-what might lurk „ but boasted a small air conditioner. I did my laundry at night,Ž she remembers. That was the only scary part. Its so dark. I mean, SO dark. There isnt a flashlight big enough.Ž For company, she brought books. Something about the magical realism of Anne Tyler and Alice Hoffman mir-rored her own days and nights. She kept busy, jotting notes in a journal; taking photographs; painting saw pal-mettos and air plants, palm trees and wild grasses; and, every day, venturing out to explore, often with park rang-ers as her guides. As days melded into weeks, the solitude and the surround-ings achieved their own magic. The noise in my head got quieter and qui-eter,Ž she says. She has gone from the Glades but not forgotten. Her Web site puts it this way: Georgia OKeefe once said God told her that if she painted the moun-tain behind her house in New Mexico enough times, she would own it. I dont think I own the Everglades, but the Everglades certainly own a part of me.Ž They own an emotional part of her, a creative part that refuses to fade. A lit-tle distance doesnt hurt,Ž Ms. Thomp-son says. Those are powerful memo-ries. It was a very raw time in my life. In a way its easier now, because of the distance. I have been painting the Ever-glades for such a long time that I have a facility with it. Its really my vocabu-lary. . I dont even have to think about it anymore. I can do it in my „ well, not in my sleep, but . .Ž In the Everglades, she painted watercolors. Back in her studio, in her 19th-century Ocean Ridge cottage, she moved on to oils. She calls her early pieces her flat paintings,Ž realistic in style, almost photographic. Once she shifted to oils, she began experi-menting with technique and modes of expression, playing with focus and depth of field and, as she says, letting accidents happenŽ to create a blurring effect, a puddling of paint, a bubbling of pigment. Her paintings begin with a canvas spread out on her studio floor: I just drench it (with paint), then take it off, then throw more stuff on it. What would happen if I did THIS? Its never the same way twice. You know, you find one little area, you like what its doing, or you dont like something, try something else. I just throw everything at it. Linseed soil. Varnish. Turpen-tine. Kerosene. Sometimes even water, which is the biggest no-no, because it wont mix, but you get interesting effects.Ž Talking about her work also has an interesting affect: This makes me want to get home and paint,Ž she says, laughing at herself. Its making me hungry.Ž Describing the evolving style of her work, she is also describing herself: her need to avoid stasis, to embrace change, to invite innovation. In a breathless rush, she explains it: Its a question of always being excited. Its not that I think, oh, Im going to do the Everglades for X number of years, or Im going to stop doing it then. Its that, in the next painting, you want to paint something exciting. The flat paintings were so tight, I just wanted to go play around. If you paint bored, its a boring painting. Paintings show how you feel, what youre doing. So youre always looking for a thrill, and thats the way you start. Each painting is a mystery that has to reveal itself. I find that very excit-ing. I have no idea before I start how its going to look, and I just keep work-ing with it. I find things that I think are really exciting, and I build on those.Ž The way she works has served her well. Her paintings have shown at Art Basel and Art Miami; at museums in Rio de Janeiro and Aspen, Colorado and San Antonio, Texas; at galleries in Paris and Belgium, in Switzerland and Russia, in Miami and Connecticut and New York. Online photos from the opening, last year in New York, of her Everglades exhibit show some of the citys glitterati, Tom Wolfe among them. Tom is a good friend of mine,Ž she says. His new book (Back to Blood), Im in the acknowledgements. Part of the plot is, theres an art forger and Tom couldnt figure out where the forger could hide and how he could get caught. Well, before I had my studio at my house, I bought an apartment, at one of these 55-and-over places, and I just used it to paint in, which is apparently not what youre supposed to do. Youre supposed to live in it. So everybody was very curious. And I kind of pulled down the shades on the windows. I wasnt hiding; I just didnt want to talk to anybody. I wasnt there to be social, I was there to work, and I didnt want people dropping in to chat. So one day, I was not in town or down home, and there was a smell of turpentine, and people called the fire department. And, of course, there was an extra key. So Tom said, How does this guy get caught? So . it was per-fect. This was all from my life, so I got the acknowledgement.Ž Gallery-goers acknowledge her work by buying it or admiring it or commenting on it. Ive heard it all,Ž she says. Ive heard, Its really beau-tiful and What would you think of the whole thing covered in snow? I sometimes get really interesting, thought-provoking things, some stupid things and even the critical things. But its a thrill, its a thrill to show it. And I enjoy showing it to people. I enjoy talking about it. I like when people ask questions. You know, youve been alone in a room for a couple of years, now you can put them in the light.Ž Her Everglades paintings are seeing the light in a somewhat different light, gallery-wise. This is the first pop-up show Ive done,Ž she says. Its popping up for a month and then its gone. Come in the next 30 days, or you dont see it. A lot of retailers are doing that now. I dont know about down here. Certainly in New York and Paris. Instead of a retailer doing a bricks-and-mortar store, they will do a pop-up show, sometimes for just a week. Its a chance to buy directly. Its an experi-ment. And this is my baby. Ive never had this much control over it.Ž That control allows for gratitude and give-back, too, in the form of a donation, a portion of the proceeds „ her paintings range from $4,000 to $20,000 „ to benefit the Everglades Foundation and the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades. Her thank-you to the once-scary place that nourished her during that raw time in her life. Natures ability to heal and adapt proved inspirational,Ž she writes on her Web site. The contrast between ener-getic growth and overt decay serves up a multitude of images that illustrate the cyclical relation between life and death . My hope is that these paint-ing, which depict details selected from a vast wilderness, trigger a connection with the Everglades „ an ecosystem that, although altered and threatened, is still magically dynamic.Ž Q >>What: “Stories from the Everglades” >>When: Through April 5, Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.>>Where: 327 Royal Poinciana Plaza, Palm Beach (enter from courtyard, southwest section, across from U.S. Post Of ce) >>Info: Contact Katie: 757-575-9158 in the know COURTESY IMAGE “Transition,” an oil on canvas by Elizabeth Thompson.

Mr. Hoebee has a lot riding on Thoroughly Modern Millie,Ž a co-produc-tion with Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, where he is producing artistic director. The show continues, with a slightly larger cast, April 10-May 5 at Paper Mill. Set in the 1920s, MillieŽ follows Millie Dilmount, a young woman who heads to New York during the Jazz Age in the hopes of marrying a rich man. She falls in love with someone else instead, but along the way she gets to sing some really fun music. Theres some really, really terrific music in it, great dance music. There are a couple of really big dance num-bers. The songs are wonderful. They are story-driven and they really are character specific, but a couple of them could be pop love songs,Ž Mr. Hoebee said. To ensure the show will be a crowdpleaser, Mr. Hoebee has cast some Broadway heavyweights. Tony-nominated actress Brenda Braxton will portray Muzzy van Hossmere. She recently appeared on the Feb. 5 second season premiere episode of NBCs musical drama Smash,Ž and has appeared on Broadway in Chicago,Ž Smokey Joes Caf,Ž Jellys Last Jam,Ž DreamgirlsŽ and Cats.Ž Burke Moses, a Broadway veteran whose credits include Guys and Dolls,Ž Disneys Beauty and the BeastŽ and the revival of Kiss Me, Kate,Ž among oth-ers, will play Trevor Graydon III. And the namesake itŽ girl?Laurie Veldheer, seen recently in Disneys Newsies!Ž on Broadway, will play Millie. She will team with Jeff Kready, who will play her love interest, Jimmy Smith. It is almost as though these two were meant to be cast together. We did our final auditions together in the finals. We didnt know we had the job with each other, but it was really fun when I read with Jeff and I was like, Oh, hes great. I hope I get it. I hope he gets it,Ž she said. And now here we are,Ž Mr. Smith said. We work well together,Ž Ms. Veldheer said. Mr. Smith would seem to have the chops for this show, with all its tap and singing. He was seen on Broadway in Billy ElliotŽ and in the revivals of Sunday in the Park with GeorgeŽ and Les Mis-erables.Ž Much of his time onstage is with Ms. Veldheer. If she were crummy, Id be out of luck,Ž he said to gales of laughter. Mr. Smith actually played the role a few years ago in a summer stock pro-duction. Jimmy is a lot of fun to play. He has been the cad. He has been looking for love in all the wrong places, so he has this great transformation when hes on the short end of the stick looking for someone to love him. Its a fun role to get to play and Im thrilled to do it again a little longer,Ž he said. That, and he gets to wear some pretty cool costumes. The coolest costumes. They were pretty styling back in the 20s,Ž Mr. Smith said. Oh, yeah,Ž Ms. Veldheer said. The show is a happy-making venture for cast. This is my dream come true, playing this role and doing this show. I when I was 15 before the Tonys. I saw it four times. I kept asking my mom if I could go back to the city and see the show,Ž Ms. Veldheer said. The show has a certain appeal for those with a sense of nostalgia. The music sounds like the 1920s and the show was based on a 1967 Hollywood musical that starred Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore. That is part of its charm, is that it is written with a previous generation of musical theater feel, so it feels familiar even though it is very new in the musi-cal theater canon,Ž Mr. Smith said, com-paring the show to 42nd Street.Ž But this show has more of a book than a retro musical such as 42nd Street.Ž Theres a lot more meat to it than an old-school book musical,Ž he said. Its charming. I think everyone just falls in love with it when they see it,Ž Ms. Veldheer said. That makes for a crowd-pleaser.Theres nobody who comes to Thoroughly Modern Millie who walks out the door without a smile on their face,Ž Mr. Smith said. Sounds like the same could be said for the actors.

Expires 3/31/13 772 NORTHLAKE BOULEVARD, LAKE PARK PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent workplace accomplishments boost your self-confidence just as youre about to consider a poten-tially rewarding, although possibly risky, career move. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With your practical side dominant this week, its a good time to reassess your financ-es to see what expenses you can cut. Aspects also favor mending fraying rela-tionships. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your Bovine-inspired determination to fol-low matters through from beginning to end pays off in a big way. Enjoy a well-earned weekend of fun with a special someone. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor re-establishing business relationships you might have neglected. A family members request needs to be given more thought before you make a decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) While you might appreciate the avalanche of advice coming from others, keep in mind that the intuitive Moon Child is best served by listening to her or his own inner voice. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Lions social life whirls at centrifugal speed this week as you go from function to function. Things slow by weeks end, giving you a chance to catch up on your chores. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Dont let your stand on an issue cause a rift with a colleague. Insist on both of you taking time to reassess your positions while theres still room for compromise. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An opportunity youd been hoping for finally opens up. But read the fine print before you make a commitment, especially where a time factor might be involved. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your need to know whats going on behind the scenes leads you to make some bold moves. Be prepared with a full explanation of your actions if nec-essary.

CAPSULESSnitch ++ (Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Rafi Gavron) A desperate father (Mr. Johnson) infiltrates a drug cartel with the hope of providing an arrest that will free his recently incarcerated son (Mr. Gavron). The opening third is slow, and Mr. Johnson struggles in this notably dramatic and non-action ori-ented role. Rated PG-13.A Good Day To Die Hard ++ (Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch) NYPD cop John McClane (Mr. Wil-lis) travels to Russia and helps his son (Mr. Courtney) protect a political prisoner (Mr. Koch). There are a few stellar action sequences, but the story is very thin, Mr. Willis doesnt have many wise guy remarks and the action grows tired quickly. It just doesnt feel like a Die HardŽ movie (this is the fifth one, if youre counting). Rated R.Beautiful Creatures +++ (Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons) Teen love between Ethan (Mr. Ehren-reich) and Lena (Ms. Englert) gets compli-cated when its learned that shes a witch with a life-defining birthday coming soon. The love story is hard to buy, but its a com-pelling narrative and it delivers a positive message for teen girls. Rated PG-13. ++ Is it worth $15? NoIts fun to play along with Jack the Giant SlayerŽ for a while, as it does have its charms as a slick and polished Hol-lywood reinterpretation of the Jack and the BeanstalkŽ fairy tale. Then we get this scene, which allows you to safely check out about 45 minutes in: After learning that giants will stop at nothing to rule the earth again, Roderick (Stan-ley Tucci) finds himself sur-rounded by giants. They are so big, and so easily kill and eat humans without remorse, that mankind would have no defense against the gruesome ogres. And yet Roderick is able to put on a crown that was forged in some special place and all of the sudden the giants bow to him and treat him as their king. Wait, what? If were supposed to believe the giants are desperate for world domination, its hard to swallow that theyll let a silly crown get in their way. Heres an idea: Flick Roderick away with your finger, take the crown and worship one of your own. This crown calamity is worth mentioning because it also factors into the unsat-isfying ending, which is a shame because some of the 3D action and visual effects sequences in this film are quite impres-sive. Whats more, the 3D is crisp and clear, though it doesnt offer much in terms of depth. If you do see it, regular 2D should suit just fine. The story: A long time ago in a small English kingdom, teenage farm boy Jack (Nicholas Hoult) comes upon some magic beans that get wet and grow into a beanstalk into the clouds. In Jacks beanstalk as it rises high in the sky is Princess Isabelle (Elea-nor Tomlinson). Still on the ground, King Brahmwell sends Jack and guard-ians Elmont (Ewan McGregor), Crawe (Eddie Marsan), Roderick and others up the beanstalk to rescue Isabelle. In the clouds they meet CGI-created giants named General Fallon (Bill Nighy) and his minions Fee (Cornell John), Fye (Andrew Brooke), Foe (Angus Barnett) and Fumm (Ben Daniels, House Of CardsŽ), all of who wish to reclaim the kingdom as their own. Ms. Tomlinson is a bit bland for a female lead, but more damaging is the storyline that noticeably deviates from the famous fairy tale and yet remains 100 percent predictable. It never ceases to amaze how movies that utilize such advanced technology for visual appeal can suck so royally in terms of basic storytelling. Its not asking much to keep things interesting while giants fling burning trees into a castle, or to give a star like Mr. McGregor more to do than be a third wheel. Box office tracking numbers suggest Jack the Giant SlayersŽ opening week-end will be a weak $30 million or so (the budget was roughly $190 million), not a good sign for Mr. Singer, who started his career with The Usual SuspectsŽ and X2Ž and lately has given us drivel like this movie and Tom Cruises Valkyrie.Ž Heres hoping he returns to form soon.

COST: $50 PER PERSON INSIGHTFUL SEDERS WHERE YOU CAN FOLLOW ALONG AND FEEL INVOLVED Led by Rabbi David Vigler Solo exhibits feature abstracts by Bailey, oils by Sander SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Cultural Council of Palm Beach County announces a pair of new solo exhibitions, one of original abstract paint-ings by Barbara Bailey and the other of original oil paintings by Manon Sander. The exhibitions open Saturday, March 16, and run through April 13 in the Law-rence A. Sanders Foundation Gallery of the Cultural Councils headquarters, 601 Lake Ave., Lake Worth. Admission to the Cultural Council is free and open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. After years of utilizing traditional painting styles … landscape, figurative, portrait … Ms. Bailey has turned to abstraction as her latest passion. Though diverse in a unique demonstration of appearance, color and texture, Barbaras paintings have this common ability to capture the viewer and to con-vey a feeling,Ž said Rena Blades, Cultural Council president and CEO, in a prepared statement. Ms. Bailey graduated from Mount St. Marys College in New York, and went on to study watercolor at the Jacaruso Studio in Rhinebeck, N.Y. After several years of operating a successful bed and breakfast in the Hudson Valley, she retired and moved to Lake Worth, where she contin-ued studying at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. Since 1998, Ms. Bailey has professionally exhibited in galleries, museums, busi-nesses, airports, private homes and public buildings in various spaces, including: Chocolate Factory Gallery, in Rhinebeck, N.Y.; Armory Art Center, in West Palm Beach; Beyond Dcor Gallery of Art, in Palm Beach; PGA International Resort, in Palm Beach Gardens; Lighthouse Art Cen-ter and Museum, in Jupiter; and Rossettis Fine Art Gallery, in Pompano Beach. Some of Ms. Baileys recent awards and achievements in Florida include first prize from the Lighthouse Art Center and Museum in Jupiter; second prize for an exhibit at the Palm Beach Gardens City Hall; juried selection into the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art as a signature member; and installation as a member of the National Association of American Pen Women. Current affili-ations include her membership in The National Association of Womens Art-ists; Armory Art Center; Lighthouse Art Center and Museum; Women in the Visual Arts Inc.; and Artists of Palm Beach County. Ms. Sanders artistic career began as a child in Germany, drawing and painting with her brother. Upon moving to Amer-ica, she continued to explore her passion for the arts through various media, styles and subject matter to eventually find that oils were her best medium. Studying with renowned artists from California to Cape Cod, she took her newly acquired knowl-edge and focused on taking artistic liber-ties in her painting. Ms. Sander is represented by OrtizSmykla Gallery in West Palm Beachs Northwood Village and Virtual Global Art at the Jupiter Yacht Harbor. Additionally, Sander will soon be teaching a plein air painting class at the Lighthouse Art Cen-ter in Tequesta. Manons educational background has trained her in the use of color and appli-cation of paint that lends her ability to capture the light of Florida brilliantly,Ž said Ms. Blades. Ms. Sander began her Fine Arts Education at Marin Art School, in Novato, Ca., where she studied oil painting in colorist impressionist style with Dorallen Davis and Jane Heaphy. She continued her study of watercolor with Diana Bradley, and studied oil painting with Camille Prze-wodek and Kathleen Lack. Over the years, Ms. Sander has participated in many workshops, including, most recently, with Ms. Przwodek in Petaluma, Ca., and with Morgan Samuel Price, in Vero Beach. She has earned a number of awards, including the Special Recognition Award for Ocean FactsŽ in the Seascapes art competition at the Light Space & Time online art gallery; and second place for Night In,Ž Art of Association juried art show at the Lighthouse ArtCenter, Tequesta. Ms. Sander has exhibited her paintings nationally in galleries and spaces such as Bolinas Museum in California; DArt for Art and The Art of Associa-tion juried show at Lighthouse Art Cen-ter; Small Spaces, Big Ideas juried show at A Unique Gallery in Jupiter; AquaMarine juried show at Rossetti Fine Art, Pompano Beach; and Ortiz-Smykla Gallery in West Palm Beachs Northwood Village. Artists interested in learning more about the Cultural Councils solo exhi-bitions are asked to phone Nichole M. Hickey, the Cultural Councils manager of artist services at 472-3336.

B22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Wine picks of the week >>Patz & Hall 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($40): This young new release opens slowly with oral notes and berries. The palate has very distinct cherry and raspberry avors with a good acid balanced by the tannins. The long smooth nish ends with a touch of spices.>>Jackie Chardonnay 2010 Russian River Valley ($20): Opening with apple and pear aromas, the palate continues these avors mingled with a touch of oaky vanilla and a touch of citrus, ending with a medium length balanced nish. P What some people wont do to attract attention. Im sure you know the type „ loud and showy and totally inappro-priate in public. Someone who makes a scene simply to become the center of attention, however fleeting and disap-proving that attention may be. There are, it appears, some of these among winemakers, too, although I sus-pect their intention is to attract atten-tion that translates into dollars at the cash register. When a Facebook friend recently posted the name of one particularly distasteful wine „ Jost 4 Skins „ it got me to thinking about what appears to be a trend. So here are some of the recent contenders for Tasteless Wine Labels of the Year. Whats inside the bottle may „ or may not „ be easier to swallow than whats on the label. Q If You See Kay. Get it? (Insert middle-school snorts and giggles here.) Sold by Vintage Point, a respectable distributor that represents multiple labels including Layer Cake and B.R. Cohn, this Italian red comes from the Lazio district, and is cabernet-based, with a touch of petite verdot and primi-tivo. The eponymous Kay is, according to the website (www.ifyouseekay.com) a well-tatted female biker whose phi-losophy is Wide open throttle or dont bother doing it at all.Ž The descrip-tion concludes with these direc-tions: SURRENDER YOUR INHI-BITIONS COMPLETELY, you can have a taste of Kay, but youll never have her. Put the throttle down, never spit, always swallow. Drink it while its here, she wont stick around.Ž Described as dark red in color, with dry raspberry, blackberry jam plums, cocoa and spice and a rock n roll attitude. Priced at less than $20. Q Quickie. Mmmm. Just imagine the bouquet! A cheeky Australian winery dubbed Some Young Punks offers an over-the-top group of labels known as The Pulp Series,Ž showcas-ing original cover art from pulp fiction books of yesteryear. The aforementioned Quickie (cover art from the book of the same name), is a robust blend of shi-raz and nebbiolo. The label fea-tures a scantily clad buxom blonde adjusting her garter belt; Passion has Red Lips (cover art from the book Sin on WheelsŽ), is a lusty shiraz and cab-ernet blend depicting a well-endowed young woman stepping out of her 1950s-era Airstream-style travel trailer, shirt unbuttoned to her navel; and Naked on Roller Skates (art from the book of the same name), is a vivacious barbera showing a woman whizzing along the sidewalk wearing roller skates, with the brand name covering significant body parts. These wines retail in the mid-$20 range. Q Cycles Gladiator. Both the merlot and cabernet sauvignon blend from California bear labels depicting an 1895 Fr ench advertising poster for the Cycles bicycle company. The long red hair of this comely cyclist flows freely behind her as she steers her bike through the galaxy, unhampered by clothing. The label proved too risque for the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, and was banned for almost three years starting in 2009 because it was deemed immodest and sensuous.Ž The merlot retails for about $15. The cabernet blend, called Banned in Alabama Red Blend, sells for about $20, and is a blend of cabernet, grenache, petite syrah and malbec, described on the website as Full bodied but extremely plush...a spicy aroma and a supple mouth feel. Initial notes of cardamom and blueberries segue into aromas of cedar and spear-mint.Ž Indeed. Q Adolf Hitler. This one gets my vote for so revoltingly tasteless I wouldnt buy anything this Italian com-pany, Vini Lunardelli, ever produces now or ever. It joins a bevy of other historical figures, including Napoleon, Winston Churchill, Karl Marx and Joseph Stalin. As youd expect, its the Hitler label thats caused an uproar since it was discovered on store shelves last year in Garda, Italy. As reported on The Drinks Business website (www.drinksbusiness.com) last August, Phila-delphia tourists Matthew and Cindy Hirsch spotted the bottles in a small market. While it should be horrifying to everyone, it was particularly offensive to them because Mrs. Hirschs aunt and grandparents died in Auschwitz, while her father was a Holocaust survivor. I was shocked. It is not just an affront to Jews, despite my husband and I being Jewish. It is an affront to humanity as a whole,Ž she told the Italian paper Corriere della Sera. Italian prosecutors opened an investigation into the sale of the wine, but apparently Italy has no law against having extremely vile taste in wine labels. To his credit, Veronas mayor ordered the wine off the shelf anyhow. Q What’s in a name? Hard to say in the case of some wines FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE hl d jim McCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com Hanging Out With...Randi EmermanCome winter and spring, youll find Randi Emerman holed up in a dark room. As executive director of the Palm Beach International Film Festival it is her time to screen films from around the country for this years festival, set for April 4-11. These days I feel like I cant leave my couch watching movies, or my quasi screening room,Ž she said. Home is in Boca Raton and her office is in borrowed space near downtown West Palm Beach. When she needs to grab a bite in West Palm Beach or in Palm Beach, Ms. Emerman has a few favorites. If Im in Palm Beach, I have Bice (313 Worth Ave.; 835-1600 or palmbeach.bicegroup.com) and The Breakers (1 S. County Road; 655-6611 or thebreakers.com),Ž she said. Downtown West Palm Beach also has plenty of options. The Paris Bakery & Caf (212 S. Olive Ave.; 820-9281 or parisbakerycafe.com) is good for lunch and breakfast,Ž she said. I also like the French place, Pistache (101 N. Clematis St.; 833-5090 or pistachewpb.com). Sometimes, she wants something lighter, and will visit Field of Greens  new location (412 Clematis St.; 820-2465 or fieldofgreensonline.com). Those are some good lunch spots,Ž she said. But thats lunch and thats work.To unwind, she frequently heads south, closer to home. When I go out at night with my friends, I go out in Delray Beach,Ž she said. She enjoys The Grove (182 NE Second Ave.; 266.3750 or thegrovedelray.com). And its always nice to be on the water at Deck 84 (840 E. Atlantic Ave.; 665-8484 or deck84.com),Ž she said. Deck 84 is good for bringing guests from out of town and I can bring my dog. Any place I can bring my dog is good.Ž Buddy, her little dog, would approve.I like Buddha Sky Bar (217 E. Atlantic Ave.; 450-7557 or buddhaskybar.com),Ž she said, adding its a great place for sushi and that view cant be beat. If you like Italian, I like Caffe Luna Rosa (34 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach; 274-9404 or caffelunarosa.com),Ž she said. Ms. Emerman came of age in Miami, and though she has lived in Los Angeles, she keeps coming back to South Florida. Maybe its the weather.This time of year, its always nice to be outside. Im not a late night person,Ž she said. And for that, theres no place like The Colony (525 E. Atlantic Ave.; 278-4123 or colonyflorida.com). Lots of times, they have that classical guitarist on the patio. Its on Friday and Saturday nights. Its relaxing to sit out there and have a martini,Ž she said.

B23 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 7-13, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Dish: BBQ Chicken Pizza The Place: Yard House, Downtown at the Gardens, 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens, Palm Beach Gardens; 691-6901 or yard-house.com. The Price: $12.95; $6.50 at happy hour The Details: Happy hour at the Yard House is one of lifes great bargains. It goes something like this: From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 p.m. to close Sunday through Thursday, the restaurant offers a half-price menu with selected appetizers, pizzas and sliders. The place has an extensive beer list, too. This barbecue chicken pizza hit the spot late one Monday. The tender pieces of chicken are tossed in a tangy sauce then baked with smoked gouda and mozzarella cheeses and sprinkled with the right amount of onion and cilantro „ just enough to give it kick. The crust is thin and crispy. Its perfect for sharing as a starter or for ordering as a meal. And thats good any way you slice it. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE It all started at age 15, when Scott Philip worked as a dishwasher at a hotel restaurant. When a cook at the restaurant failed to show up for work, the general manager handed Mr. Philip a case of eggs, said, learn how to flip them,Ž and it was the begin-ning of Mr. Philips passion for the culinary industry. There I was, 15, and flipping eggs,Ž says Mr. Philip. Scott Philip, chef and owner of Hurricane Caf, was raised on a farm in Kansas City, Mo. He says he was sur-rounded by good food and cooking by his mother, but his passion was within hotel restaurants since there were so many after the establishment of the Kansas City International Airport. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1985, Mr. Philip worked at Las Canarias restaurant at La Mansion Hotel in San Antonio. One year later, he was featured on the Great Chefs of the West television program where he was showcased for his skills in Southwestern cuisine. Mr. Philip also was the chef for the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston and Newport Beach, Calif., as well as a chef at the Snowmass Lodge and Club in Aspen, Colo. As a chef, it seems like you are always moving from one big property to another „ at least when youre in the hotel business,Ž he says. His culinary ability even extends to that of a corporate chef for a grocery store where he says he needed to reteach himself everything, even how recipes were mea-sured „ in grams. It was great experience,Ž he says. I just didnt like that I didnt have my kitchen crew.Ž In 2001, Mr. Philip moved to South Florida, where he not only established Hurricane Caf, but he was able to have his kitchen crew again. Hurricane Caf serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I call us extreme casual cuisine,Ž he says. By having three different menus, we are complicated but we are also simple.Ž I wanted a place that was warm and cozy,Ž he says. Hurricane Caf is a place where people want to sit down and relax on a regular basis instead of only on special occasions.Ž Name: Scott Philip Age: 50 Original Hometown: Kansas City, Mo. Restaurant: Hurricane Caf, 14050 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach Mission: My mission, along with my staff, is to serve good food, keep the restaurant clean, sell food at a fair price, and keep everything simple.Ž Cuisine: American fare offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Training: Mr. Philip graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1985. He has been in the culinary indus-try for 35 years where he not only worked as head chef for multiple hotel restaurants, but also worked as a corporate chef at a grocery company. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I really like Redwings. These shoes last me two to three years and they are by far the most comfortable and dont fall apart. Theyre kind of like a tennis shoe and slip resis-tant, which also means that when I am walking around the kitchen, food doesnt stick to the bottom! When you are in the kitchen all day long, having comfortable shoes is important because if your feet hurt, then everything else starts to hurt.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? My true culinary self-indulgence is definitely sushi and sake. If I go out to dinner, 9 out of 10 times I will be eating at Asian Fin.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? Things have changed so much in the last 20 to 30 years in the restaurant business, which means you really have to study more and be creative. You need to under-stand the trends and the seasons as well as have a strong will. In this business, you need to love service „ there is no doubt about it. It is about making the people happy, no matter what it takes.Ž Q In the kitchen with...SCOTT PHILIP, Hurricane Caf BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Fans of food trucks can travel north for the next roundup of portable dining establishments.

Wines from a corner of France: Caf Boulud at the Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach will offer La Fete des Vines du Jura, a wine-tasting dinner, on March 14. Jura, about 50 miles east of Burgundy, is one of the smallest wine regions of France, but offers a broad range of eclectic wines described as a cultural rather than an intellectual experience,Ž according to sommelier Mariya Kovacheva. Ms. Kovacheva will be joined by The Country Vintners Laura DePasquale, a master sommelier, educator and expert on Jura, for the four-course dinner. It starts at 7 p.m. March 14. Cost is $85 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required. Call 655-6060 or email mkovacheva@danielnyc.com. The Brazilian Court is at 301 Australian Ave., Palm Beach.
