Chatting with him reminded me distinctly of Arthur Aylen, my own instruc-tor at Colorado Outward Bound during a 26-day course in 1969, the month before I turned 17. A rock climber and widely experienced mountaineer from Rhodesia (now Zim-babwe), Mr. Aylen had also served in the British SAS, if I remember correctly. He was cheerful, determined, unsentimental, impossible to fluster and perfectly happy to suffer a bit, if he could learn from it. Especially in a beautiful place. For such men or women, discomfort and deprivation „ leaving the certainties of the harbor,Ž as the expression outward boundŽ once meant to mariners „ cannot distract them from looking deeply into the world, and into themselves. At 49, Mr. Taylor has had plenty of time to show his stripes, and they are those. The website reflecting his work as an interna-tional photographer, www.nomadruss.com, is aptly named, although the word nomadŽ doesnt quite do him justice. He doesnt wander merely for the sake of it, as far as I can tell. Instead, he wanders to understand, and perhaps to share that understanding with other curious souls. After all, nothing can match travel as an antidote to stuffy pretention or worse „ to prejudice, to jingoism, to arrogance, to myopia. Often it can strip away illusions, creating one of the greatest paradoxes, in my mind: The best way to understand your home „ the best way to love it „ is first to leave it, for a day, a week, a month, a year, or a decade or two. Displayed online, the photographic record of Mr. Taylors leaving includes images from India and the Indian Hima-laya, Laos and Cambodia, Thailand and Burma, Moroccan North Africa, Easter Island (almost 2,200 miles west of Chile, lying remote and solitary in the Pacific) and South America. At home, hes also used the camera to explore the American South and Appala-chia, Florida, and the eastern Sierra of the far west. But that geographic lineage doesnt tell his whole story. Although Mr. Taylor has been an instructor in wilderness schools for 20 years, he also found time to earn two masters degrees, one in theology and the other in intercultural studies. Before earning them, he served for two years in the Peace Corps in New Guinea. Sent in to help create a banking system, he decided instead to help build rainwa-ter catchment systems, a hands-on contri-bution that suited his temperament and instincts. What it takes to make such a person is hard to tell. Certainly not any single envi-ronment or place, because Outward Bound instructors come from many places. In Mr. Taylors case, he was born and raised in Alabama, where his father was an accountant and his mother a teacher, he told me. He became a Boy Scout, learning early how to sleep on the ground. Every Sunday after church, the family would go fishing. Following high school, he attended the University of Alabama, graduating to become a young banker for two long years. Then one morning, he went down to the crossroads. Returning from a week-long camping trip, Mr. Taylor recalls, he looked out the window into a beautiful day and thought, Im not going to waste 52 weeks again. I dont want to wake up when Im 60 and say, I was a banker.Ž Many go down to the crossroads, it seems, but many turn around and go back. Not Mr. Taylor.Perhaps the lesson he offers all of us is really as simple as it seems: If you want to do something, go do it. You, alone, are the greatest obstacle to exploring the world, not the world itself. While traveling, Mr. Taylor spent six years living in northern India and work-ing at the International Mountaineering Leadership Institute, even training porters for Himalayan expeditions to K-2 and such 8,000-meter peaks in Pakistan as the Gash-erbrums and Masherbrum. He has also taught first aid to nomads on the Tibetan plateau, where the nearest hospital was a two-day ride on horseback. As an Outward Bound instructor (and much like Arthur Aylen before him), Mr. Taylor has likely discovered a way to main-line joy and get paid for it „ get paid to help people realize theyre capable of doing more than they thought they were capable of doing,Ž as he puts it. Take it from the man himself, then: You cant go after comfort, if you want to feel joy. You have to rough it. You have to sleep on the ground. There were years when I slept on the ground more than 200 nights a year.Ž And there may be yet. Mr. Taylor was then, and he remains now, outward bound. That may prove instructive for all of us.

It will in all likelihood be the spring, summer and fall, as well. The national party is leaderless and nearly issueless, but besides that, is thriving and in fine fighting trim. Once, taxes and national security were the partys pillars, supplemented by domes-tic issues like welfare reform and crime and by symbolic issues like the Pledge of Alle-giance and flag burning. Now, the pillars are in disrepair. Cuts in income taxes dont have the same resonance because rates are so much lower than 30 years ago. Republicans formerly had success with across-the-board tax cuts that reduced rates at the top and for everyone else. By focusing on raising rates on the top, President Barack Obama has forced them into almost exclusively defending tax cuts for the rich.Ž In theory, national security is still a Republican strength, but it doesnt have as much resonance as in the years after Sept. 11.The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll has Democrats leading on: looking out for the middle class, Medicare, health care, reducing gun violence, Social Security, immigration, taxes and the econ-omy. The good news for Republicans is that they lead on everything else. The bad news is that everything else is only spend-ing, the deficit and national security.The problem with the deficit as an issue is that people care about econom-ic growth more, and the problem with spending cuts is that people like them more in the abstract than in reality. At times, we have a $16 trillion debtŽ seems the sum total of the partys argu-mentation. When party leaders say that they have to become the party of growth again, the policy they invariably advance to that end ... is reducing the $16 trillion debt. This necessary, but hardly sufficient message is almost all we hear from Republicans in Congress, where their majority in the House gives them respon-sibility without decisive influence. The House Republicans mainly have blocking power. Woe to the republic if they didnt. But if you block things, youre easily labeled an obstructionist, and wouldnt you know it, people dont like obstructionists. Their only hope to deflect the nation from its profligate budgetary path is confrontations coinciding with key fiscal inflection points, like the March 1 dead-line for the sequester. They always ride into these fights badly outgunned. This wont change soon. It is too early to have a presidential candidate or even a presidential field, so the GOP lacks a head and therefore a unified voice. Of course, it wasnt long ago that Democrats seemed to be in dire straits. The party agonized over appealing to values votersŽ after 2004. Little did they know that eight years later, they would run a successful re-election campaign on limit-less abortion and free contraception. Events will again take a hand, as they always do. And since last falls election, top Republicans from Bobby Jindal to Marco Rubio have been talking about a more bread-and-b utter ec onomic agenda. Fleshing that out, though, is a lon-ger-term proposition. In the meantime, Republicans should prepare themselves for more discontent. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Rand Paul’s filibuster of John BrennanYou could say that a filibuster occurs when a senator drones on and on. The problem with the U.S. Senate was that there were too few senators speaking about drones last week. President Barack Obamas controversial nomination of John Brennan as director of the Central Intelligence Agency was held up Wednesday after-noon by a Senate filibuster. The rea-son: Brennans role in targeted killings by drones, and President Obamas pre-sumed authority to kill U.S. citizens, without any due process, if they pose an imminent threat.Ž The effort was led by tea-party Republican Rand Paul of Ken-tucky, joined by several of his Republi-can colleagues. Among the Democrats, at the time of this writing, only Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon had joined in the genuine, old-fashioned talking filibus-ter,Ž wherein the activities of the Senate floor are held up by a senators speech. Members of Congress, tasked with oversight of intelligence and military matters, have repeatedly demanded the memoranda from the White House detailing the legal basis for the drone program, only to be repeatedly denied. The nomination of Brennan has opened up the debate, forcing the Obama admin-istration to make nominal gestures of compliance. The answers so far have not satisfied Sen. Paul. Nearing hour six of his filibuster, Sen. Paul admitted: I cant ultimately stop the nomination, but what I can do is try to draw attention to this and try to get an answer ... that would be something if we could get an answer from the presi-dent ... if he would say explicitly that noncombatants in America wont be killed by drones. The reason it has to be answered is because our foreign drone strike program does kill noncombatants. They may argue that they are conspir-ing or they may someday be combat-ants, but if that is the same standard that we are going to use in the United States, it is a far different country than I know about.Ž The issue of extrajudicial execution of U.S. citi-zens, whether on U.S. soil or elsewhere, is clearly vital. But also important is the U.S. governments now-seemingly routine killing of civilians around the world, whether by drone strikes, night raids conducted by special operations forces or other lethal means. Rand Pauls filibuster followed a curious route, including references to Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland,Ž and quotes from noted progressive, constitutional attorney and Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald and blogger Kevin Gosztala of Firedoglake. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to Sen. Paul March 4, writ-ing, It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the Presi-dent to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States.Ž Holder noted that Pauls question was entirely hypothetical.Ž So, on the Sen-ate floor, Paul brought up the case of two actual U.S. citizens killed by drone strikes, Anwar al-Awlaki and his son, Abdulrahman. Anwar al-Awlaki was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011. Two weeks later, also in Yemen, his 16-year-old son Abdulrah-man, a Denver native, was also killed by a drone strike. Paul asked during his fili-buster, If you happen to be the son of a bad person, is that enough to kill you?Ž As Sen. Paul filibustered, Will Fitzgibbon wrote from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London: Last month, we launched a new drones project: Naming the Dead. The aim of this project is to identify as many of the more than 2,500 victims of U.S. drone strikes in Paki-stan as possible. Given we currently do not know the identities of 80 percent of those killed, we believe this is a crucial and miss-ing step to having a more transparent drones debate. ... With all the attention being recently paid to American citizens killed by drones and with the drone debate growing, we thought it would be a good time to remind ourselves of the individual human stories of drone victims. Those we know about and those we dont.Ž Barack Obama and John Brennan direct the drone strikes that are killing thousands of civilians. It doesnt make us safer. It makes whole populations, from Yemen to Pakistan, hate us. Sen. Pauls outrage with the presidents claimed right to kill U.S. citizens is entirely appropriate. That there is not more outrage at the thousands killed around the globe is shameful... and dangerous. 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. Rand PaulJohn Brennan

Im good at it, my house is set up for it (no carpets, easy-clean surfaces), and most of all „ I love it! It isnt a job,Ž and no money changes hands. But I work from home with a flex-ible schedule, and that makes it easier to do the early training and house-training. I love having puppies around, and since I know what Im doing, the friends I do this for now and then end up with a pretty nice youngster in a few months time. Theres still a lot of growing and training to do, but a good foundation has been laid. What do I get out of it? Puppy breath, and lots of it. Ill soon be starting with another 10-week-old puppy, so Im getting the house puppy-proofed and dragging the crates and pens out of the shed to help with the house-training. After a couple of months, the retriever pup will go home with friends for good, and Ill let my own pets recover for a while before I start another puppy project. While its unusual for most puppies to be given a head start with an experienced puppy raiser, the practice has long been part of the lives of service dogs, such as those who assist wheelchair users or the vision-impaired. The advantages of a loving, consistent and structured upbring-ing are many. While the chances are that youll be raising your own puppy „ most people do, after all „ making the most of those first few months is key to a great start. Your puppy wants to be part of your family, and he craves loving leadership. So if youre starting with a puppy, here are a few things to keep in mind: € Bond with your puppy. Dogs are social animals. Dont throw your pup into the backyard, however nice the dog-house youve put there. Make your pup a member of your family. € Socialize your puppy. Be careful with this until all the puppy shots are done „ no parks or areas where other dogs frequent. You dont want your puppy getting sick. But after the veteri-narian gives the go-ahead, pull out all the stops. Expose your pup to all the sights, sounds, smells, people and other animals that you can. € Never let your puppy do anything you wouldnt want a grown dog to do. Puppies jumping up are cute. Dogs doing the same are not. Its always easier to prevent a problem than to try to fix it later. € Teach your puppy using positive methods, and make training fun! The dog-training world has made great strides in developing positive training techniques. Find a book, a tape, a class „ or all three „ that will help you make the most of these exciting new ways to train. And dont overlook puppy classes „ theyre great for socialization. € Realize your puppy will make mistakes, and dont get angry when he does. Puppies are babies! Dont expect perfection and dont be heavy-handed. Its better to distract and redi-rect puppies than to punish them. Love your puppy, play with your puppy, enjoy your puppy. But you should always, always be thinking of how youre molding this little baby into the confi-dent, obedient dog of your dreams. Time passes all too quickly in the life a puppy. The great life you want with your dog starts with the effort you put into a puppy. Keep your attitude positive, and enjoy every minute. I know I do.

In addition to the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center located at 1025 Mili-tary Trail in Jupiter, JMC said in a pre-pared statement, the new 1,400-square foot Niedland Breast Screening Center provides 3D mammography (tomosyn-thesis), bone densitometry and blood draws in one convenient location, with ample parking and easy access. The Niedland Breast Screening Center offers fast, stress-free mammograms, designed for working women or busy moms on the go, so patients can take care of themselves and continue on with their day. Jupiter Medical Center is dedicated to bringing the latest advances in womens imaging to our community,Ž said Sherri Lewman, director of radiol-ogy services at Jupiter Medical Center. Adding the second facility provides greater access to the women south of Jupiter Medical Centers main campus. Both locations position us in the com-munity as the premiere provider of womens radiology services offering the highest quality of care.Ž 3D mammography revolutionizes how breast cancer is detected, provid-ing increased diagnostic accuracy and finding breast cancer at an earlier stage. Exams are performed on a digital mam-mography unit that takes multiple low-dose 3D images of a compressed breast from different angles. Because of the 3D imaging capability, radiologists now view breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time. This technology is extremely useful for all women, especially those who have dense breast tissue. 3D mammog-raphy has been proven to provide an 8 percent increase in breast cancer detec-tion with a 25 percent decrease in call-back rates to find those cancers. Nationally accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and designated as an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center was the first facility in Palm Beach and Martin coun-ties to offer 3D mammography. For more information, see jupiterbreastcare.com. The Niedland Breast Screening Center is located at 11310 Legacy Place, Suite 110, Palm Beach Gardens (next to Miami Childrens Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center).

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYMick Jagger. And if you happen to be the reporter assigned to write a profile about Dick Robinson, you see his career rests on a simple premise: If you want someone to like you, ask them questions. Everyone loves to talk about themselves. Everyone, except Dick Robinson. This poses quite the Catch-22 for your assignment. Dick Robinson wants to talk about you „ your writing, your passion, your purpose. In the company of Dick Robinson, you are the star. And just by sitting on his couch, youre on the Dick Robinson show. But as a reporter, you must attribute these first impressions youre feeling, so you call up his associates. Dick is the first one to congratulate you when youre moving forward and hes the first one to pick you up when youre falling behind,Ž says Steve Parker, a broadcasting buff who grew up with Dick Robinson as somewhat of an adopted uncle. He always makes you feel like youre the most important person in the world. He talks to Donald Trump the same way he talks to the guy sweeping the floors.Ž Mr. Parkers father, the renowned late program director Charlie Parker, hired Dick Robinson as a disc jockey back in the 60s for WDRC, the pivotal station between New York and Boston, locat-ed in Hartford, Conn. You wanted to be played on the Dick Robinson show at night. Every teenager in the world was listening to him,Ž says Steve Parker, now a senior account manager for the Connecticut Radio Net-work. Hes still friends with the Rolling Stones. The Roll-ing Stones call Dick when theyre in town because Dick helped them get popular back in the 60s.Ž The audience he had back then, no one could touch. At high school record hops, teeny boppers waited in line to meet him. Now Dick Robinson lives in Palm Beach Gardens, as a self-described charity addict,Ž is past president of the American Heart Association and on the board of the American Cancer Society; hosting International Red Cross balls and disabled veteran galas; raising more than $5 million for juve-nile diabetes; auctioning off his Steinway piano and classic Rolls Royce for the ben-efit of PBS and NPR. But Dick Robinson will not elaborate on these details, you have to Google. Heres how he renders the trajectory of his career: He recorded his first commer-cial spot for a drugstore in Boston, where he was working as a soda jerk. He got his first on-air gig as an announcer for WARE in Ware, Mass. When people asked him where he worked, it went down like this: WARE.Ž Where?Ž WARE.Ž Where?Ž He slid into the WDRC night shift right in the midst of the British Invasion. He bought some stations, he sold some sta-tions. He opened the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (the oldest and largest group of broadcast media schools in the nation). He opened more schools (there are now 12 CSB campuses spanning the east coast, including one in Palm Beach Gardens). And he had a lot of fun. He rushes through his resume because he would rather sip his Diet Coca-Cola and listen to you. Remember, in the com-pany of Dick Robinson, you are the sub-ject, the intrigue, the talent. Behind his questions and his blue eyes, bluer than Sinatra, and his gravelly voice, welcoming as the dirt road home, you see his gift of charisma, his gift of connecting with everyone within a matter of minutes. And it seems once hes made that connection, its hard for him to let go. When its time to leave, it takes most people 30 seconds to say goodbye. It takes Dick about an hour to get out the door,Ž says Walt Pinto, one of Dick Robinsons colleagues back at WDRC. He stops to talk to every single person and inquire how they are. Its not just, Nice to see you and out the door, hes very interested in everybody. Its more important for him to talk to you than worry about running some place in a hurry.Ž His son remembers growing up on Dick Robinson time. Yes, Dad Dick would take his children out for ice cream, they would just have to make a quick stop and see Cher or Mick Jagger first. Yes, he took his children to concerts, but they were not sitting out in the stands eating pop-corn, they were playing the drums, run-ning down the stairs, tripping Cher as she stepped up on stage in her extravagant costumes, talking to Mick as he waited for their dad to introduce the Stones. I thought every dad was like him,Ž says James Robinson, Dicks son. All that stuff was just as normal as I knew normal to be.Ž Dick did go to his boys ballgames, but as James remembers, he showed up in true media man style: He never thought parking lots were for him. He just needed to get to where he was going. Baseball, soccer „ he would show up to one of my games and drive his car right up on the field, get out, see the game, drive off.Ž Once a year, Dick would round up his three kids and interview them for the Robinson Review. He would videotape them dancing, telling jokes, perform-ing magic tricks, asking them questions all the while, cultivating their creative sprouts. Whether playing the role of father or entertainer, talking to you or Mick Jagger, its all the same to Dick Rob-inson. Hes living his love. Dick Robinson walks with his shoulders back, his arms swinging, his fingers snapping to an Aint life a kickŽ-like swagger. He sings in the shower. Hes always humming, even standing at the gas station pumping gas. He reads from his cell phone under the covers at 4 oclock in the morning but still has his old reel-to-reel tapes stashed in the closet, so when he starts to miss yesterdays technology he can pull em out and hook em up. When Dick Robinson talks about the school he founded its as if hes talking about his fourth child. He sold the school once, to a division of the Credit Suisse banking group, believing they had good intentions to open more broadcasting schools in locations like Paris, South America and Italy. When Credit Suisse filed bankruptcy, Dick Robinson bought his school back.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 NEWS A11 It felt like I sent my kid to a foster home,Ž he says. Really deep down inside, I missed it ƒ When I bought it back, it felt like a child returned.Ž Walk into the CSB Palm Beach campus with Dick Robinson now and watch stu-dents try to compliment him. I want to thank you,Ž says a recent WSBR hire. Ive always dreamed of coming to this school ƒ If you didnt start this, I wouldnt be where Im at. Thank you.Ž Dick Robinson throws the compliment right back on the student: Dont thank me. Its you. Youre the talent.Ž Another student approaches him. This guy,Ž Dick Robinson starts, telling a story to introduce the Iraq war veteran turned broadcaster. The student shares how he landed a gig with ESPN 760. Dont get too big too fast,Ž Dick Robinson encourages. Another student comes up to him: Growing up, my parents used to listen to you. My dad used to sit there and smoke his cigar and wed all listen to you.Ž Forever transfixed on the person hes talking to, Dick Robinson asks, Hows Dads health?Ž The student says his parents have passed, But they would be proud of me for coming here.Ž Next year Dick Robinson will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his school and his 60th year in broadcasting. Currently, he spends his days recording American Standards by the Sea,Ž an internationally syndicated two-hour radio show, broad-cast each week from his 70-foot yacht Airwaves.Ž Though he sees himself as a peddler, peddling his goods, Dick Robin-son has become the ambassador of The Great American Songbook, founding a nonprofit to preserve songs written by George Gershwin and Cole Porter, songs performed by Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald, songs that do not glorify vio-lence, demean women or push drugs, but teach that the four-letter word is love. Theres the ticket, if you want Dick Robinson to talk, start talking about the Songbook. Mention The Nearness of YouŽ and hell go, Oh!Ž like he just took his first bite of lobster. Bring up The Way You Look TonightŽ and hell go Oh!Ž like he just saw his daughter in a wedding dress. Name the tune Guess Who I Saw TodayŽ and hell go Oh!Ž like he just closed the back cover of Hemingway. Keep him rolling and hell start to recite the lyrics to I Thought about You,Ž his hand held up like hes swearing his emo-tion under oath: I took a trip on the train/And I thought about you ƒ I peeked through the crack/And looked down at the track/The one going back to you/And what did I do?/I thought about you.Ž There are kids who have never heard the Songbook,Ž Dick Robinson says. Weve got to give them a taste of it. Weve got to keep it alive.Ž So hell keep on leaning into his microphone, but remember, hes not doing it for himself, hes doing it for you. Q COURTESY PHOTORobinson moved into the photo, with his microphone, during the Beatles’ first press conference in the U.S., in 1964 in New York City.

")0-*(2(,&4-1.*(%$ NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEDoping on iceLeaders of the ice-fishing community, aiming for official Olympics recognition as a sport, have begun the process by asking the World Anti-Doping Agency to randomly test its athletesŽ for per-formance-enhancing drugs, according to a February New York Times report. However, said the chairman of the U.S. Freshwater Fishing Association, We do not test for beer,Ž because, he added, Everyone would fail.Ž Ice-fishing is a lonely, frigid endeavor rarely employing strength but mostly requiring guile and strategy, as competitors who discover advantageous spots in the lake must sur-reptitiously upload the hauls lest com-petitors rush over to drill their own holes. Urine tests have also been run in recent years on competitors in darts, miniature golf, chess and tug-of-war, and in 2011, one chess player, two minigolfers and one tugger tested positive. Q Cultural diversityQ A frequent sight on Soweto, South Africa, streets recently is crowds of 12-to-15-year-old boys known as izik-hotaneŽ (boastersŽ) who hang out in their designer jeans, shimmering silk shirts, bright pink and blue shoes, and white-straw, narrow-brimmed fedoras,Ž according to a February BBC News dispatch. Flashing wads of cash begged from beleaguered parents, hundreds may amass, playing loud music and sometimes even trashing their fancy clothes as if to feign an indifference to wealth. Since many izikhotanes families are working-class survivors of apartheid, they are mostly ashamed of their kids behavior. This isnt what we struggled for,Ž lamented one parent. But, protested a peer-pressured boaster, You must dress like this, even if you live in a shack.Ž Q Indias annual Rural OlympicsŽ might be the cultural equivalent of sev-eral Southern U.S. Redneck OlympicsŽ but taken somewhat more seriously, in that this year, corporate sponsorships (Nokia and Suzuki) helped fund the equivalent of about $66,000 in prize money for such events as competitive pulling using only ones ears or teeth. We do this for money, trophies, fame and respect,Ž one ear-puller told The Wall Street Journal in February. This year, in the four-day event in Punjab state, the 50,000 spectators could watch a teeth-lifter pull a 110-pound sack upward for about eight seconds and an ear-puller ease a car about 15 feet. Q A generous local businessman recently graced the city of Okuizumo with funding for replicas of two Renais-sance statues (Venus de MiloŽ and Michelangelos DavidŽ) for a public park. Agence France-Presse reported in February that many residents, receiving little advance warning, expressed shock at the unveiling of DavidŽ and demand-ed that he at least be given underpants. Q Fax machines, almost obsolete in the U.S., are still central to many tech-savvy Japanese families and companies (who bought 1.7 million units last year alone), reported The New York Times in February. Families prefer faxes supe-riority to e-mail for warmly expressing Japans complex written language, and bureaucrats favor faxes preserving the imperative of paper flow. Q Latest religious messagesQ The 14 guests at a jewelry party in Lake City were initially incredulous that home-invader Derek Lee, 24, meant to rob them, but when they saw that he was serious (by putting his gun to the head of one woman), the hostess went into action. In the name of Jesus,Ž she shouted, get out of my house now!Ž Then the guests chanted in unison, Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!Ž over and over. Mr. Lee, frightened or bewildered, sprinted out the door empty-handed and was later arrested. Q The president of the National Black Church Initiative told the Associated Press in January that its pastors are gen-erally free to ordain new pastors as they wish, and that consequently Bishop Wayne Jackson of Detroit did noth-ing wrong in his ordination ceremo-ny (which was surreptitiously videorecorded and uploaded to YouTube), even though it consisted of Bishop Jack-son in robes, praying while lying on top of the new bishops, who were also pray-ing. (The AP noted that Bishop Jackson had been the target of thats-so-gay YouTube comments.) Q In January, Lhokseumawe City, Indonesia, drafted new ordinances, including one that prohibits women from riding motorcycles with their legs straddling male drivers, since that would tend to provokeŽ them. A proponent said the ban honor(ed)Ž women because they are delicate creatures.Ž Immediately, some authorities denounced the legisla-tion, pointing out that riding side sad-dleŽ is much more dangerous in cases of sudden swerves and collisions. As of press time, the mayor had not decided whether to implement the ordinance. Q Questionable judgmentsQ In February, an off-duty Tampa police officer and an off-duty sheriffs detective from nearby Hernando Coun-ty were awarded the sheriffs offices highest honor, the Medal of Valor, for exemplary bravery in an October incident in which a 42-year-old naked woman was shot to death by the offi-cers. The woman was holding a gun and had made threats, and a 5-year-old boy was inside a truck that she wanted to steal. However, even though a neighbor had simply wrestled the woman down earlier, the officers still thought their only move was to shoot to kill. Said the womans brother, They shot a mentally disturbed, naked woman. Is that valor?Ž Q In 2011, Julian Pellegrino pleaded guilty to DUI involving serious bodily injury to Mark Costa in Chicopee, Mass., and was sentenced to serve 18 months in jail, but that did not deter Mr. Pellegri-no from filing a lawsuit in December, demanding $1.1 million for Mr. Costas somehow caus(ing)Ž his car to collide with Mr. Pellegrinos. Mr. Pellegrino (with a broken neck) was actually more seriously injured than Mr. Costa, who sued back, asking nearly $200,000. (In 2010, while Mr. Pellegrino was awaiting disposition of the case with Costa, he pleaded guilty to another DUI.) Q

Q Enterprise Bank lends many hands at beach cleanups SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhen you think of Jupiter Beach, you think of a wide expanse of sand thats a per-fect spot for children to build sandcastles and for residents to take long walks with their dogs. But keeping it pristine takes the ongoing efforts of Friends of Jupiter Beach, which operates a volunteer beach cleanup on the first Saturday of each month. Among those rolling up their sleeves to pick up trash and recyclables is a 16-person team from Enterprise Bank, a project spon-sor. Theyre carrying out what bank Chief Executive Officer Hugh C. Jacobs Jr. called, in a prepared statement, another oppor-tunity to serve our community outside the walls of the bank.Ž During the cleanups, volunteers invest about an hour cleaning the 2.5-mile stretch, with recyclables taken away by Rapid Removal, a Palm Beach County firm. Afterward, they gather for a continental breakfast and door prizes, which in March included the ever-popular Enterprise Bank money roses. In our role as a true community bank, we are actively at work in a host of civic and charitable endeavors, both corporately and as individuals,Ž Mr. Jacobs said. As Jupiter Beach is, in many ways, the sig-nature of our town, its important to us to sponsor and to work for its consistent cleanup.ŽThe next FJB cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, beginning at 8 a.m. Clean-ups are held only if the weather is fair.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYFeeling snubbed by a friend? Be dignified, even though it can hurtBrenda was sure it was a mistake. This just couldnt be. She considered Marcy to be one of her closest friends. Marcy would not have made a bridge game on Thursday, and not included Brenda „ and, certainly, not without discussing it with her first. Thursday had always been the day they met for lunch and a fun afternoon of social bridge. Brenda knew that Marcy had been working like a fiend all summer to perfect her game „ lessons, practice and tournaments. But, now, it seemed like Marcy was angling to be included in the more advanced games. Brenda knew she was not as strong a player as Marcy, but there were plenty of other times Marcy could play without breaking up the Thursday game. But, when Brenda asked Marcy if she had heard things correctly, Marcy wasnt the least bit apologetic. She became defensive and said Thursday bridge had never been written in stone. And, in fact, she made it seem like Brenda was the demanding and immature one. But the hurt went deeper still. Lately, it felt like it was always Brenda who initiated the phone calls to make plans. Brenda didnt consider herself to be a possessive friend, but she had to admit it bothered her that Marcy and her husband went out to dinner with the Smiths and the Coopers, and hadnt included them. Brenda tried to broach the topic with Marcy, but somehow the whole situation had been turned around. Brenda felt petty and needy, and, quite frankly, was sorry shed brought it up.Most of us count on our friendships to be positive, affirming additions to our lives. Granted, we may enjoy very different kinds of connections with var-ied groups of people. Sometimes our relationships are superficial, but fill a specific need or purpose „ parents of our childrens friends, tennis teammates or collegial coworkers. We share com-mon interests, and may keep things cor-dial and light. Other relationships are grounded with deeper connections and purpose. With these treasured friends, we may speak the same language and have shared value systems. We know in our hearts that these people have our backs and come through for us consis-tently over time. Because of a gratifying history, we may trust these people and feel safe enough to confide very per-sonal matters, reaching out for advice and emotional support. Many of us look at our friendships from very different vantage points. Unfortunately, we may set ourselves up for tremendous hurts and misunder-standings because we may have very different belief systems about what a true friendship entails. In our adult lives, most have us have learned to balance and share our friend-ships. We understand that our friends will have other loyalties and bonds, and are secure enough to give them the breathing room to have activities with-out us „ no questions asked! We know our friends wouldnt like the feeling of being held hostage to obligations they never intended to sign onto. And, were usually smart enough to understand this and take steps to divide our own interests and loyalties so we dont over-load any one relationship with too much pressure or expectations. We also have to remind ourselves that no friendship is perfect. We often grow in different directions, and must be flexible and open to these changes if the relationship is to thrive over time. Sometimes when our friends pull away, it has nothing to do with their feelings about us. Rather, it may be a reflection of a change in their lives or their desire to take a different course. When we refuse to make allowances for these changes or some lesser trans-gressions, we may create conflicts and compromise the comfort of the relation-ship. Our friends may become resentful if we vigilantly follow their comings and goings or castigate them for perceived slights. Of course, if a so-called friendŽ continues to hurt us over time, its in our interest to seriously consider if this is an individual we can count on. We must be careful to step back and try to consider the situation from a less emotional stance. Sometimes when a close friend doesnt include us, they may not have intentionally meant to hurt us. In their minds, they may have made choices that dont include us and dont feel an obligation to explain them-selves. To be fair, they may have mis-judged the impact of the exclusion. Its not unreasonable to count on friendsŽ to be attuned to our feelings and to do their best to be consider-ate. There are many ways to soften the blow of disappointing others. Its com-mon courtesy to give friends a heads upŽ if we are making changes that will affect them. Offering alternate dates and activities keeps the door open and shows sensitivity, even if the intensity of the friendship has lessened. This is obviously a sensitive scenario and is often fueled by the self-esteems and insecurities of the parties involved. To some of us these things matter a lot, and to others, not much at all. Exclusion always hurts, but especially so when weve been hurt by a person we trusted and counted on to be con-siderate of our feelings. Being rejected may cut deep into our hearts. Its an especially painful betrayal to learn we misjudged the character of a person we valued, and to discover theyre self-absorbed, or indifferent to the heartache theyve caused. How we respond and conduct ourselves in the face of the hurt speaks to our own character and sense of self worth. While we may want to rant, rage or malign them, there are obviously more dignified, self-protec-tive steps we can take. Healing from hurts is a very personal, on-going process to work through. When we stay stuck too long in a resentful, vengeful place, its often much tougher to move forward. Reaching out to others for emotional support is often validating and lessens the sting. Cultivating new interests and endeavors can be a means of deflecting the hurt. At the same time, enthusiastically immersing ourselves in new friendships and projects can make an important difference.

Early In 2011, I become a weekly contributor to Florida Weekly on issues of philanthropy and the chari-table sector. As the president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, I was then in a unique position to reflect upon these issues. Over a span of 40 years, the foundation provided about $94 million in grants in support of charitable organiza-tions and causes throughout its service area. Thats quite a crows nest to look out from and upon the local charitable world and to ingest, through the lens of history, issues of time, context, and opportunity that have a profound effect on not only what you do, but how you do it, within a charitable purpose orga-nization. Intellectual reflection is a well-developed discipline among my colleagues in the charitable sector. Thought-leader-shipŽ is a prerequisite to and a launch pad for groundbreaking ideas and strat-egies, especially when in the context of addressing issues and challenges for which no past precedents or solutions exist. I came to South Florida in the fall of 2007 to become the foundations vice president for programs. In December 2008 I was appointed as its president/CEO. It was a watershed moment for this prestigious institution and profes-sionally, for me. A new beginning? Yes, but it wasnt all calm seas, full sails and bright skies. The economy and the housing market were rapidly turning to ash before our eyes. The horrific turn of events created in its wake a rising tide of urgency that transformed the charitable sector. The opportunity to become a regular contributor to Florida Weekly was an unexpected gift. It was a means to look out from a place of leadership upon the dislocation being wrought in our com-munities by the Great Recession. Over the course of 2011, I wrote about and provided a modest voice on behalf of the charitable organizations and car-ing donors that by government default, increasingly became our areas first and sometimes only responders to families in crisis. My column was last published by Florida Weekly in December 2011. Fast forward to 2013. My five-year tenure with the foundation recently ended with the announcement by the board of my resignation. It was a great ride. I am proud and enormously grateful for all I was able to accomplish with the boards support during my tenure. But the work isnt done. Nor has the need dissipated to keep thinking and writing about present issues from the perspective of the charitable sector. I am delighted to become, once again, a regular contributor to Florida Weekly and I take encouragement that I am one among many writing with this focus. In Florida, we are fortunate to have statewide networks devoted to sharing, educating, thinking about and support-ing charitable causes. For example, there are more than 27 community foundations in the state of Florida. This institutional framework of like-institutions spawns a collegial net-work extending beyond county lines. It is a robust pipeline providing two-way access for those here and elsewhere to information and knowledge that can often inform and broaden the knowl-edge upon which local philanthropic initiatives are envisioned and imple-mented. This matters. Philanthropy in realtime is not the practice of knowing how bad things are; it is about envisioning how good or better things can and should be. Our task is to discern the role that charitable giving can play in turn-ing the levers we hold toward a more positive o utcome. B eing able to make the right choices with limited resources is a craft. There is a judgment call to be made inclusive of but not limited to just the facts. That is why thinking on your feet is a leadership imperative within the charitable world. I hope this column will add yet another open window and a public space to consider and reflect upon issues affect-ing donors, nonprofits and charitable causes. Let me know what you think; give me course correction when you will. Share in building with me, within our communities, the leadership, wis-dom, knowledge and skills necessary if the charitable sectors efforts are to be successful in changing our world for the better, one person at a time.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 NEWS A21 Palm Beach1800 Corporate Blvd., N.W.Suite 302Boca Raton, FL 33431561.665.4738 Fort Lauderdale200 East Las Olas Boulevard19th FloorFOrt Lauderdale, FL 33301954.522.2200 (telephone)954.522.9123 (facsimile) Whimsical folk art fetches an impressive priceFolk art is unique and often is both useful and humorous. At a Cowans auc-tion in late 2012, an example of these traits was seen in a mirror offered for sale. The 19th-century mirrors pine frame was carved to look like a man, with his head at the top, shoe-clad feet at the bottom and hands held up near his neck. One hand holds five fingers up, the other just two. The artist seems to be referring to the seven years of bad luck that awaits anyone who breaks a mirror. Or perhaps it was a gift for a seventh anniversary or just a suggestion of the lucky number seven. It was good luck for the seller. The mirror, only 17 inches high, was esti-mated at $1,000 to $1,500. It sold after a bidding battle for $5,700. Q: I am thinking about remodeling my home office and am agonizing over replacing my old desk and chair. I bought the very heavy desk about 20 years ago from an elderly couple. It was made by the Imperial Desk Co. of Evansville, Ind. It has a few nicks, but its in very good shape. The chair was made by Domore Chair Co. of Elkhart, Ind. I had it reup-holstered about 18 years ago. It has a cast-metal frame and also is heavy. Are the desk and chair valuable antiques I should keep? And if so, is it OK to use them? A: Your desk and chair are not valuable antiques. But they are good, solid pieces of office furniture. Depending on their style and condition, the desk might sell for about $350 and the chair for about $200. Base your decision on how useful the pieces are and if you like their look.Ž Q: I recently found what I thought was a very unique item at a yard sale. Its a ceramic pig with many tiny holes on its back. It took me all weekend to figure out what it is. I think its an hors doeuvres server because the holes are just the right size to it hold toothpicks. Is it unique and valuable?A: Toothpick holders in the shape of ani-mals became popular in the 1950s. Hedgehogs and porcupines prob-ably were the first ani-mal shapes made, since inserted toothpicks look like the animals quills. After that, cats, dogs, pigs and other animals were made in pottery, wood, plastic, silver and other metals. They are fun to use at a party, but most arent worth more than $20 to $25. Toothpick holders made of silver are worth more.Q: I have a lithograph published by Associated American Artists. Ive seen some sell for thousands of dollars. Can you tell me something about this group? A: During the Depression, most people couldnt afford fine art, so Reeves Lewenthal founded Associated American Artists in 1934 to provide art for the mid-dle class. He hired well-known American artists, including Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood, to make lithographs, which were reproduced and sold in department stores. Later, the art was sold in the Associated American Artists gallery in New York City and by mail order. Watercolors, oil paintings and other works, including home furnishings and acces-sories, were also sold. Prints originally sold for $5 unframed and $7 framed. Today, some sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on the artist.Q: My father was always buying stocks and bonds. When he died, I inherited two certificates for 100 shares of stock in Cobalt Silver Queen Ltd. They are dated Dec. 12, 1908. Can you tell me anything about this company, and what the value of these certificates might be?A: Cobalt Silver Queen Ltd. was organized in 1906 in Cobalt, Ontario, Canada. Silver was discovered in the area in 1903, and by 1905 prospectors and mining com-panies were rushing to the area to stake claims. Cobalt Silver Queen mined silver and cobalt. Stock in the company was offered for $1.50 per share in 1908. By the 1930s, most of the mines had closed. Stock certificates for companies that are no lon-ger in business may be redeemable (ask your library for help) or collectible. Col-lectors look for certificates with historical value, elaborate engraved designs, inter-esting graphics or the signature of a well-known person. The hobby of collecting old stock and bond certificates is called scripophily.Ž Certificates are bought and sold online as well as at auctions.Tip: Never touch the surface of a watercolor or drawing.

Prior to this purchase, one or several of these elements triggered a termina-tion of the buying process. Car owner-ship was not necessary when working and residing in New York City for a large chunk of my life; mass transit was the solution. At age 32, I inherited a car and drove it until it literally fell apart. My next auto was technically a pur-chase, but there were no real elements of selection or negotiation; I was so busy as a portfolio manager that I allot-ted two hours one day to get a new car „ I test drove one car at a dealership and bought it. While married, the task of auto purchasing was my husbands. In divorce, the task was assumed by my 12-year-old son as his knowledge was many multiples of mine. He told me the color, features, and specific location of the car in the dealers lot. As I do not like to negotiate, I basically accepted the lease terms. My son found replace-ment cars in each of the successive lease periods and with several years of military college under his belt, the last lease terms were aggressively negoti-ated by him. That paints a pretty good picture of my inexperience and discomfort. Car buying was out of my knowledge base and comfort zone. So I planned a process and got quarterbacking from multiple friends who are seasoned in (and actually enjoy) auto purchases. My first step was to test-drive many different cars. Though it might sound sexist, I wanted a man to help in the test drive at the dealership. I learned to go very fast to see pickup, listen for the sound of the engine, jiggle the wheel to see if the car responds quickly, etc. A companion can also help in exiting the dealers negotiating clutches. After testdriving 10 cars, I narrowed the field to three. Initially I was interested in leasing, my norm for the past 12 years. As each manufacturer has different lease terms (amount down, length of time under lease, warranty programs, free options, etc.). I had to adjust monthly lease amounts to compare fairly. I amortized the required money down over the life of the lease so that all lease options were reworked to assume zero down. For instance, $2,000 down and a $350 a month lease for three years (36 months) was reworked to be $405.55 a month ($2,000 divided by 36 months is $55.55, added to $350 is $405.55). Then, for each car, I deducted/added the car specific savings/costs. Examples of savings for the car I purchased included: reduced gas costs of $27 a month (as better mileage more than offset the cost of premium gas); an auto insurance savings of $30 a month (although the car was more expensive than others, it had much better safety features); auto maintenance savings of $30 a month (compared to alternative cars that did not offer full maintenance over the three-year lease); and $7 a month in free satellite (one year free amortized over the three-year lease). And dont forget free car washes at two times a month at $10 is a tidy sum. For my metrics, the most expensive car of my three possibilities translated into the lowest monthly lease due to collective savings in mileage, insurance and auto maintenance. Next decision was whether I wanted to lease this car or to buy it. At 3 percent financing for six years, the argument to buy becomes compelling. And as I was just ending a lease with several thousand of already paid and unused miles, I was inclined to buy. Someone suggested that I consider buying a mildly used dealer/loaner car and that I call various Internet sales departments to see if they had such a gem in inventory. In my case, a dealer more than 100 miles away had a loanerŽ or demoŽ car for sale. And what followed was my non-negotiating and truthful pitch: I will not travel 100 miles to negotiate with you as I am not good at it and I dont like doing it ƒ so give me your rock bottom number and if it works, I will buy it tomorrow.Ž Now in saying this, I was, unbeknownst to me, effecting some ele-ments of game theoryŽ developed by John Nash, Nobel Prize winner and subject of the movie A Beautiful Mind.Ž In effect, I (not the dealer) had created the rules of the game, I was the scarce resource (as I would m ove on to another Internet sales depart-ment if I didnt like the price), and the dealers salesman was bidding for my business. This is entirely different from one-on-one negotiations inside a dealership „ where the game favors the dealer. I bought the car, a 2012 328i BMW. It had 3,000 miles on it. Hopefully, some women who are afraid of investing might take comfort that even I can feel like a fish out of water when doing something new and complicated. Be encouraged; with a little tenacity and some friends help-ing in the process, you can venture into new financial territories.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY propel them on a short voyage to what they hope will be a long payoff. The trip will take, maybe, 45 minutes, and it will end in slips theyve rented amid floating docks at the 28th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show, Flagler Drive waterfront, West Palm Beach, running March 21-24. When they arrive, their larger adventure through the long weekend will just be starting. Mr. Looney, Mr. Stella and their staff, working out of booths 1016 to 1020, will step onto the docks and up across the gunwales at 10 a.m. each of the four days and work through 6:30 or 7 at night. Or later. Sometimes, if youre working a deal ... if its a $500,000 deal, you might end up buying somebody a dinner,Ž Mr. Looney says. In Miami, the company sold 17 boats. We sold three of them directly from our territory.Ž The nautical allure endures. They are stoking dreams, maybe. More, they are showing and selling boats. For boat brokers and dealers, including SeaVee and Planta-tion on either side of Stella Marine in the PGA Marine Center, shows such as this one, such as similar large events in Fort Lauderdale and Miami and a show in Stuart later this year, can be make-or-break. It actually means that youre in business or youre not in business,Ž Mr. Looney says. The importance of a boat show and the name recogni-tion from a local standpoint is critical. Theres not a lot of foot traffic, the way there was back in the early 2000s, when money was just coming out the doors and we had a waiting list to buy boats. So you have to be proactive.Ž The adventure extends far beyond them. Even at anchor on the Intracoastal and among tents and trailers along Flagler Drive, everyone invested in the Palm Beach boat show hopes for fair winds and smooth waters ... and for con-tented crowds and buoyant sales. Last year, Thomas J. Murray & Associates produced a report for Yacht-ing Promotions Inc. and the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County that counted total sales from the Palm Beach International Boat Show at $125.2 million, an economic output of $91.6 million, with 995 full-time jobs associated with it, attracting 40,000 visitors spending about $211 per day, booking 4,300 room-nights, in an industry with an annual economic impact to Palm Beach County of $2 bil-lion. For the profit-minded, Kevin Looney says, a boat might be a poor financial investment; very few gain value. For those who buy, though, and those who deal, too, its unmatched as an invest-ment in good times and peace of mind, on leaving your earthbound worries at the dock. That getaway urge is part of what Raymond E. Graziotto, RayŽ to all who know him, enjoys about the business. As president and CEO of Jupiter-based Seven Kings Holdings and co-owner of 12 marinas, he gravitated beyond real estate into the boating business some 18 years ago. We were doing apartment deals, and we stumbled across a piece of property at the end of Donald Ross Road,Ž he says, that we thought would make a perfect apartment site, and it happened to have a marina. I couldnt find anybody who could manage it the way we wanted it managed, so I thought, OK, well just try it.Ž He and his business partner were soon hooked. The romance of this is, just remember that our customers are there to have fun,Ž he says. Theyre not there because they have to be there. Its not like the apartment busi-ness. The most beautiful thing in the world is that our customers, by-and-large, are there for one purpose only: to have a good time.Ž Mr. Graziotto also serves as president of the countys Marine Industries Association, the Palm Beach boat shows owner and overseer. In the mid-90s, association members realized that a boat show would expand the fun, bring business and visibility, if done right. He has seen it grow with the years. Palm Beach County alone, he says, has some 46,000 boats and 800 marine businesses, including 57 marinas with 5,000 slips that generate about $300 million in income and generate $53 million in taxes, with an annual eco-nomic impact of nearly $2 billion. Were even more excited this year,Ž he says, because we think the econo-my is finally picking up.Ž The real thrill, of course, comes on deck, in the open air. Kevin Looney is standing, on a recent morning, looking out at PGA Boulevard from the helm of a gleam-ing white Everglades 350LX, 35 feet long and sporting three Yamaha 350 horsepower V-8, four-stroke outboard offshore engines that can push it to 60 mph on open water. Mr. Looney shakes his head at the mention. You could just have twin engines, and it would still go 45 mph,Ž he says. You could have 300 (horsepower) on here and save $20,000. Theres no real reason to have three engines on this boat. Its all a guy thing. It really is. Its absolutely a guy thing. The difference between two engines and three engines running this boat is 9 miles an hour. Thats all. To me, the extra engines going to cost you $23,000, and you follow the maintenance schedule on them, you spend another $1,500, $2,000 a year on your regular maintenance, so if you keep the boat for five years, that engine costs you $35,000, and when you turn around and sell the boat its not going to give you any more money. But I guess if you can afford it ...Ž Regardless, consider the creature comforts. For a newcomer to higher-end boating, marvels await. As a salesman, Mr. Looney is a human highlighter, and the 350LX boat fairly sparkles with selling points. This is your helm,Ž he says. Your instrument panel would go in here. That has full GPS systems and an auto-pilot, so you can pres s a butt on and the boat will take you where you want to go. This boat has a little electric grill outside. It has a full canvas that sur-rounds the forward or the helm station, air-conditioned, 16,000 BTUs. This is a table that folds down. This turns into a bunk. Thats the cabin inside, has a bunk under. Bathroom with toilet, full shower. Theres your television up front, your microwave here. A bunk here and a bunk under the back. Water heater. Cockpit grill. Blower, air-condi-tioning, separate AC up front here.Ž And, he says, its the safest boat on the water. The manufacturer calls this Everglades line unsinkable,Ž a claim that might seem risky since the Titan-icŽ (hey, no icebergs in Palm Beach). But Mr. Looney points to the hulls pre-molded in-fill of compressed foam. You can cut this boat in pieces,Ž he says, and it will still float.Ž With boats as with other modes of transport, he says, you get what you pay for. This little side door, here, is a great invention, allows a level entry from a dock without crawling across the boat. It will run you an extra $8,000. Want your outboard engines painted white over the molded-in gray? Add $3,000 per engine. Then he cuts to the chase. This has a list price of about $500,000,Ž he says, and it will sell in the neighborhood of probably $430,000, $440,000.Ž Or try a $3 million yacht, good for the offshore party or celebrity recep-tion and those long stays near exotic islands. Or theres the new model being offered by Millennium Yachts: sticker price over $30 million, 150 feet long, can hit 70 mph. How about a skiff with a trolling motor? Youll find those at the show, too, its managers suggest, along with kayaks and sailboats and nearly any-thing that puts prow to water. Part of this is for your own peace of mind or your own recreation and youre willing to pay for it,Ž Mr. Looney says. I think gas on the dock right now is $5.54 a gallon. My boats hold 400 gallons. So if you just go to fill up the boat, its an expensive weekend. Depending on how you use the boat, it becomes an even more expensive weekend. I can cruise the Intracoastal and spend maybe five gallons of gas an hour, or I can be a tes-tosterone guy and go out the inlet going 50 mph and burn 60 gallons an hour. At five bucks a gallon, in an hour you can burn through three, four hundred dol-lars.Ž That makes a case for sailboats, a visitor says, and he laughs. Mr. Looney himself, back up in the Boston area, started on sailboats. Ive owned a boat since I was a kid,Ž he says. I sailed in national competitions.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 BUSINESS A25I went from sailing to stink-pots when I was young, worked my way up. I always have a boat handy.Ž Ray Graziotto knows what he means. He is sitting, just then, in the Seven Kings Holdings conference room, across from a large-scale model of a schooner fashioned in wood and can-vas. He will say, quickly, that, like his own marinas, the Palm Beach Interna-tional is not just for high-enders. The bulk of my business is the 17-foot guy to the probably 60to 65-foot guy,Ž he says. You have a lot of diversity. You have a guy with a 1988-something that he bought used, and that guy just wants to get on the water and this is what he can afford. And then you have the (high-end) guys.Ž Regardless of the ride, he says, boating gets in the blood. Theres a real commonality, a camaraderie the environment, and fishing, and diving,Ž he says. Like most of the Palm Beach Internationals exhibitors, the Stella Marine partners and Everglades Boats will invest significant dollars (Mr. Looneys total estimate, including fuel and work time, is $25,000) to show their water-craft to spectators and to buyers who might seem to window-shop but who often come with a sharp focus. Most have a favorite brand and a pretty good idea of what they want. If you dont sell a boat, youre in trouble,Ž he says. Youve got to sell one just to cover expenses.Ž That sounds dire, but Mr. Looney comes in with perspective, learned partly from his daughters, Deborah and Pamela. Both survived cancer. Debo-rahs was especially nasty, followed later by diabetes. I was a city kid and grew up tough and all that, but this kid, Ill put her up against any of the guys I was in the service with. Shes a really strong kid. Very proactive with her own health, very bright kid. With Pamela, it was more of an environmental tumor. She didnt have to go through the radiation and chemo. But she came through, too. Theyre both good guys and strong kids.Ž Then he and his wife, Frances, spent seven years caring, in their home, for her parents, both afflicted with dementia. Quite frankly, I dont know how my wife did it,Ž Mr. Looney says. I could work from the house, so she did have a support system. She started her own business just because she had to be home.Ž Her handmade work from that business, Shellabrations, shows on his office wall: oval mirrors framed in coronas of shells. For Mr. Looney, selling boats out of that office, and at shows, is more plea-sure than grind. He has been selling something since he was a very young man, has played a large role in health-care and filtration companies, has owned businesses and sold them, has put together art and antiques shows. Selling is fun,Ž he says. Its knowing a product and being able to explain it to people.Ž Boats, he says, bring a special pleasure. And they bring him in touch with an array of clients. When Mr. Stella walks through the door, that morning, the first thing he says is, Dustin is just pulling in with the boat right now.Ž That would be PGA tour golfer Dustin Johnson, who within moments is standing out in the parking lot, looking over the inventory to trade up to a better boat. When they reach their slips in West Palm, Stella Marines five brand-new, still nameless boats will join the mas-sive flotilla, more than 600 boats in the water and maybe 400 on land from dealers across the region. Dane Graziano of Show Management and his crew will be waiting to receive them. In the days before Stella Marines journey, senior V.P. and COO Graziano, his staff of 60 and some 200 temporary workers embark on an annual pilgrim-age of their own, by truck, with the same destination. They literally assem-ble the Palm Beach International show. We start the Friday before, building the marina,Ž he says. Its approximately a 2 million-square-foot floating dock marina, Styrofoam aluminum plane with a wood deck, that we transport in 250 semi-truckloads by land and launch in the water individually. Then we connect them together and put in the pilings. The marinas got power and water, just like its been there for years.Ž Their other labors include raising one tent, a clear-span 132 feet wide and 262 feet long and airconditioned, with flooring and carpeting, and another 40-by-300 feet without the AC, and other spaces for displays and food booths and exhibits. Its a phenomenal event, the fifth largest boat show in the United States,Ž Mr. Graziano says. (Fort Lauderdales is first.) Virtually every boat company thats in business in the tri-county area is in our show. Ive done this show nearly 20 years now, gone through four administra-tions of mayors, and its very gratifying to see its impact. The biggest change has been the growth in big boats. There are more and bigger yachts than ever before.Ž Both Ray Graziotto and Kevin Looney incline to smaller boats, and Mr. Graziotto also has to confess: he does not, at the moment, own a boat, wait-ing for his children, Kailey and Nico, to regain the bug. But nothing, he says, would keep him off the water. We go out with friends,Ž he says, which is the absolute best way to go. It gets you the way animals get you. I got this dog, and my mom would tell you, my mantra was no wife, no kids, no dog, and I got the wife and I got the kids and now I got the dog. I find myself getting up at 5:30 in the morn-ing to run with the dog, this 85-pound retriever, every day. Its the same way when you get out on the water, the weathers great and the sea is lapping up against the boat and you see the wildlife or you catch a fish or youre underwater and you see a reef thats fabulous, its the greatest thing in the world.Ž Does Kevin Looney have a personal boat he uses these days? He looks around at his line, smiles and says, All of em!Ž He cant wait, he adds, to show them off.

Sell your home with The Malloy Group of Keller Williams Realty!Call 561-370-5736 or 561-876-8135 SellingPBG.com Increased sales are fueled by low interest rates, 90% loans Interest rates are at their lowest in years and banks are lending up to 90 percent loan to value again „ this has helped the real estate market take a leap in the right direction. Sales are showing appreciation, desirable inventory is on the decline and money is cheap.Ž The current conditions have allowed buyers to purchase properties that normally would cost hundreds to thousands of dollars per month. Banks are still taking on average 60 days to close even if a buyer is pre-approved; however, buyers and sellers alike are all capitalizing on unique market conditions. One of the properties I had listed a few months ago was a large family home in a popular Jupiter community. It was the largest model in the neighborhood and did not have many comparables in that same neighborhood. When pricing the home I looked at the neighboring communities within a half-mile of my listing, where the homes had the same size and similar features. I then priced the home accordingly based upon these comparable properties. Immediately after the home went on the market, I had a minimum of four showings a week. After three weeks, an offer came in from another family currently residing within the neighbor-hood. As we negotiated through the contract, there were several conversa-tions regarding the price of the home and comparable properties. A model of this size had not sold in the neigh-borhood in over 3 years. Most recent sales had been much smaller homes so it concerned the buy-ers. It took a week to reach a price that buyer and seller felt comfortable with, but we came to terms and the con-tract was signed and set to close within 45 days. My sellers were hesitant to accept the contract con-tingent upon financing. This was an AS ISŽ contract, so they agreed to allow a contingency on the inspection period for 15 days. Everything was mov-ing along smoothly with the inspection completed within the first week of the contract. When the report came back, there were only 4 minor items on the list. During these 15 days, the buyers were also going through the loan process. They had been preapproved to pur-chase and had to close within 45 days since their current home was also under contract. They did not seem concerned about qualifying since the contract was not contingent on approval, but had questions about the appraisal. When the appraisal was ordered, the appraiser called me and asked for direc-tions to the property. He was from Ft. Lauderdale. The fact that he was not from the area was somewhat of a red flag, and then when he arrived at the home it immediately became apparent that he did not normally do appraisals in the area. I had comparables ready for him and provided him with informa-tion on the home, community and other recently sold homes. Appraisers appre-ciate the information given to them and often will consider it throughout their review. In this case, the appraiser did not want any additional information and told me he had already pulled com-parables on his own „ based upon the banks requirements and procedures. The 14th day of the inspection period came and I received an email from the buyers broker to please return their deposit, they were cancelling the con-tract due to inspection concerns. This came as a surprise since the sellers were going to repair the 4 minor items on the inspection list. There were no true concerns that we could see. My suspicion was correct. I learned the appraisal on the home came in much lower than the contract price, almost 10 percent lower. I asked for a copy of the appraisal and learned the appraiser used short sales and foreclosures. I cannot say he was incorrect, but there were also several properties that could have been used. I immediately asked the buyers broker to contest the appraisal and fortunately he did. We were able to get a new appraisal and it came in at a number very close to that of the contracted price. The buyers ended up coming back and closing on the home, but almost walked away simply because they were afraid to be at the upper end of the mar-ket for their new neighborhood and did not want to overpay.Ž Since the banks will only finance on appraised values, it is a crucial aspect of any transac-tion that its going to have a mortgage attached to it. With values continu-ing to rise each month, appraisers are still under strict guidelines and remain extremely conservative. It is not fault of either the appraiser or the bank-sim-ply a condition of the current market. The real estate market currently has many positive aspects and the rise in pending sales for Palm Beach County proves our area is still very desirable, but there are challenges as well. Buyers, sellers, banks and all other partners in the industry must all be well informed in an effort to work together and capi-talize on the recovery.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com Looking the gift horse in the mouthMoney is a funny thing in relationships. Even in this day and age, when women are often their own bread-winners, the issue of money „ and who controls it „ sets the tone in a relationship. I recently met my friend Liz for lunch, and over high-end Southern fare she told me that this year shes making full professor at the univer-sity where she teaches. Liz owns her own home, drives a foreign-made SUV and otherwise seems to have her act together. But as she told me about her new relationship, I had to wonder. He likes the outdoors,Ž she said. Hes really into mountain biking.Ž I nodded encouragingly.Hes an attorney,Ž she continued, and he has his own firm.Ž I took a sip of my sweet tea and made the small noises women make to indicate their approval. Liz leaned forward and spoke conspiratorially. I think hes pretty wealthy,Ž she said. He only flies first class.Ž I laughed. Whats not to love about that?Ž He gives me lots of gifts,Ž she confessed. Liz hesitated. He gave me a MacBook Air last week.Ž A MacBook Air?Ž I said. Were talking serious cash. And the first time we met, he gave me an iPad.Ž My face must have shown my shock. An iPad? On the first date? And for my birthday he gave me this watch.Ž She pulled back her cuff to show me her new wristwatch. And were going on vacation next week. He picked up the tab for that, too.Ž All this after dating only two months? My opinion of Lizs new Romeo suddenly plummeted. I shouldnt have been surprised by what she said next. He even suggested I quit my job and move in with him.Ž The red flags were everywhere. My friends new beau was dealing in power, not generosity, and I hated to think what he would demand from her in return. A certain fawning grati-tude, I imagined, would be the least of his expectations. Later in the week, Lizs story still on my mind, I met up with the man Im seeing for drinks. I like to think of myself as progressive, but when it comes to relationships Im often quite traditional. Im happy to cook for a man, but when we go out to dinner I expect him to pick up the check. But on this particular night, I decided to see how it feels to control the money. I got this,Ž I said as we walked in.My boyfriend looked surprised but didnt object. And as I handed my credit card across the bar, I couldnt help but sense a little thrill. Is this how he feels every time he takes me out to dinner? Is this how Lizs partner feels each time he presents a lavish gift? The feeling was intoxicating and gratifying. When my boyfriend thanked me at the end of the night, I told him it was my pleasure. But the pleasure was not in giving, as people would have us believe, but in knowing that I had the upper hand. Q „ Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse. Follow her @ArtisHenderson.

CONTRACT BRIDGEImagination BY STEVE BECKERIf you play against opponents who never make a mistake, this column is not for you. But if, as is more likely, your opponents are human and err occasionally, these words will not be in vain. Assume youre South and West leads the seven of hearts against your four-spade con-tract. Right away you get a sink-ing feeling about whats going to happen. After you take Easts queen with the ace and lead a trump, you know East will win the trick, cash the king of hearts and return a heart for West to ruff. In the fullness of time you will also lose a club trick and so go down one. But there is no place for a defeatist attitude at the bridge table, so you begin to look for a way out until, after a while, you concoct a scheme that you hope will turn the tide. When East puts up the queen of hearts, you dont take it with the ace, but play the jack instead! When East continues with a low heart, you win with dummys ten and cash the ace of diamonds, discard-ing the ace of hearts! Now you cannot be defeated, and you make four spades. The fly in the ointment is that East can upset your plan by returning the king of hearts at trick two rather than a low heart. The low-heart return by East is an error, to be sure, but it is one he might easily make. So if, as we said before, East is a player who never makes a mistake, he will return the king of hearts, and your grand scheme will go up in smoke. But it certainly doesnt hurt to try! Q

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYBut Mr. Grace does not work much anymore in the United States „ St. Patricks Day will be spent in Ireland, and he says the festival circuit here does not suit him. In Florida, he simply relaxes „ not that he does some of the things for which Palm Beach County is known. First of all, Im a non-golfer. I dont play golf, which is silly. And most of my friends back in Ireland think I am crazy to be surrounded by such won-derful golf courses in an area where streets are called after golfers,Ž he says. So what does he do?I rest up at home, I go swimming, and if I have people visiting from Ire-land, I get in the car and go to Disney World,Ž he says. At one time, three of his four children had lived in the area „ he and his wife, Eileen, have six grandchildren. His children have since moved to New York and Boston. Son Bradley played in the hardcore band Poison The Well. While in Florida, Mr. Grace relaxes and basks in being relatively unknown. That sparks a story.I went into Publix years ago, one morning. I was getting some items for breakfast. I was walking by a mirrored wall in Publix and I went by it and I stopped and I came back and I looked and I had no trousers. I was wearing only T-shirt and my undies, and Id never realized that Id left the house „ look at me in slippers „ that I left the house in just a long T-shirt and a pair of jocks. If that had happened to me in Ireland it would be in all the newspa-pers,Ž he says. Ah, the difference between Jupiter and Dublin. He works on scripts, but concedes, I generally am a bit of a couch potato.Ž It would seem to be well deserved for someone who has worked in show business for more than 45 years. He started off as a singer in a folk group; comedy came later. It was playing a guitar and telling the odd joke, and it just progressed over a short number of years to com-edy,Ž he says. He calls his singing musical storytellingŽ because so much of his music is ballads. His latest album, The Gathering: Homeward Bound with Brendan Grace,Ž is a collection that displays his warm baritone. The singing comes easily for him.Doing a comedy act is more challenging because youve got to speak the right language, and Ive got to keep my comedy gentle, that it can be understood by very old people or very young people,Ž he says. News events are too filled with tragedy to generate much material for his show. I always found that if I made myself the butt of the joke or my late father or my grandfather or my mother-in-law ƒ it has to be taken tongue in cheek. There is a huge joke in Ireland that mothers-in-law and sons-in-law dont get along,Ž he says. Of course, he and his late mother-inlaw were great friends. She had a great sense of humor, as did his parents. A lot of my inspiration came from American comedians. From the early 60s forward, Ireland started to have its own TV station, black and white, of course, but a lot of the programs on there were American sitcoms. Im talking about shows like Father Knows Best, The Donna Reed Show, Drag-net and Medic.Ž Watching them was good preparation. I must have been studying those shows before I knew I would be in the comedy business,Ž he says. Timing is everything, but script is, too. I remem-ber the timing of Jack Benny and the expressions of Jackie Gleason.Ž And like those television comics, he avoids foul language. I have a name in Ireland over the years of working clean, and I still am. Thats not to say theres not lots of innuendo in what I do, but its not full overt and its not offensive. People say to me they can bring their whole family to the show. A lot of comedy today and Irish comedy of today is blue,Ž he says. Of course, Mr. Graces brand of humor appealed to a different shade of blue, as in Ol Blue Eyes. When I did the show for Sinatra and Sammy Davis, I have some photographs of them that speak for themselves „ they were absolutely in tears laughing at what I did, because I did the drunk act. You could smoke indoors at the time, so I drank and smoked during this act,Ž he says. The handlers for the two men advised him against doing it. I just figured, Ill try something, and I did this drunk act with a ciga-rette and the guys fell asunder, they probably thought, This guys crazy or nervous to do an act like that in front of two boozers. The guys were chain-smoking alcoholics and anybody who would do a parody of them to them ƒ I just took a chance at it,Ž he says. That led to more work in the United States. And vacations always were in Florida. We came for two years and were now here for 20,Ž he says. Family and friends come and go all the time. Its like a halfway house. In and out,Ž he says. The thing with Florida, when I came here, I always figured that if I could live in a nice climate like this I would not care how hard I had to work,Ž he says. Sounds like he has found the perfect mix. Q GRACEFrom page 1men. When we were growing up from the grades of three and four we had classes in language. My mother was a French teacher and I studied French as well,Ž he said. We are classically trained and have gone through the opera world.Ž That means he has sung in German, French and Italian, as well as Swedish and Czech. And add Welsh to the list.The Welsh song on Feels Like Home is one of the a capella tracks,Ž he said. That song, the lullaby Suo Gan,Ž showcases the groups harmonies. They were inspired to sing the song after someone challenged them, saying, You always say you are Celtic, but you never sing a Welsh song.Ž While in China, they sang in Mandarin. We learned the equivalent of Shenandoah or Danny Boy,Ž and they went totally bonkers when we sang in Mandarin,Ž Mr. Nelson said. It shows them you respect their language and their people.Ž Traveling in China did present some obstacles. The presenters took the men out to dinner each night for what amounted to a feast, which made it tough for some members to stay in shape. Food was challenging but we managed. One of my favorite tours is our Dutch tour. We go there in April. We live in little bungalows and we can go shopping and be healthy,Ž he said. In America, flying every day, it is harder for some of us to stay healthy.Ž Being classically trained, they have tricks for keeping their voices in trim. We dont smoke. We dont drink before a show. Basically, youre surviv-ing off an instrument you cant see,Ž he said. To keep in shape, Mr. Nelson said he swims several times a week. He also volunteers each summer building a childrens school for AIDS orphans in Kenya. He will head there in July for his tenth trip. After the building, in the evening, I would do music with the children. But we were exhausted after hours of car-rying blocks and putting in windows,Ž he said. After a decade, he is seeing the fruits of his labors. We can break the cycle of the slum. Its just such a beautiful, beautiful setup,Ž he said of the place. There are little farms and hens and a few cows and a cornfield,Ž he said. The places he has traveled will no doubt be on Mr. Nelsons mind as he sings at the Maltz, but that show will be mostly about Ireland. And there is one thing he will promise: Were going to try to avoid Danny Boy.Ž Q TENORSFrom page 1 >>What: The Celtic Tenors >>When: 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. March 18 >>Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

But once you get over them, you can start to focus on matters that are more important to you. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Congratulations, Lamb. This is the week to finish your project and then bask in your well-earned approval. (And if you like, you also can say bahŽ to all those detractors.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The bold Bovine could find a new opportu-nity too intriguing to be ignored. But dont charge into it. Go sl owly so you see how things develop as you get more involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might try to soften your stand on that important issue. A little more flexibility actually could get you what youre look-ing for. A new friend enters the picture midweek. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your inner voice is on the mark when it advis-es you to tackle that family problem now! The sooner youre able to come to terms with it, the better it will be for everyone. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Someone reveals important news about a longtime associate. But before you decide how to deal with this informa-tion, make sure its reliable, and not simply self-serving. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Some intensive soul-searching early in the week can help you reach a deci-sion by weeks end that should please both you and the other person involved. Good luck. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The possibility of a career change is intriguing. Learn more about what it can offer and what it cannot. Weigh everything carefully. And ask questions. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Work is your priority this week as you try to make up for lost time. Expect help from someone who cares about you. Things take a welcome turn by the weekend. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A health problem causes some anxiety early in the week. But prompt medical attention soon eases everyones concerns. Enjoy an arts-filled weekend. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) As much as you might resent it, a changing situation could require you to adjust your plans accord-ingly. The good news: An associate agrees to cooperate.

CAPSULESJack The Giant Slayer ++ (Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci) Teenager Jack (Mr. Hoult) travels a beanstalk to the clouds to rescue a princess (Ms. Tomlinson) from the land of giants. Some of the visual effects are nicely done, particularly the giants. Too bad the story is so simplistic and the ending so unsatisfying. Loosely based on the Jack and the BeanstalkŽ fairy tale. Rated PG-13.Snitch ++ (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. +++ Is it worth $15? (3D) YesAny trip to the enchanted land of Oz treads on sacred cinematic ground, so if you venture there youd better have a darn good plan and not screw it up. Part homage to The Wizard of OzŽ (1939) and part a fresh take prequel regarding how the Wizard got to Oz in the first place, Oz The Great and Power-fulŽ is a gaudy, lively film whose panache is matched only by its ambition. That is to say, this is a good movie thats a true feast for the eyes. The first 20 minutes are in black and white (the opening moments of The Wizard of OzŽ were in sepia tone, not black and white, but no matter). Its Kansas, 1905, and at The Baum Bros. circus we meet Oz (James Franco), a small-time magician whose assistant Frank (Zach Braff) aids in their magi-cal charades. After being told by a woman named Annie that shes going to marry someone with the last name GaleŽ (ahem), a strongman chases Oz into a hot-air balloon that gets swept away in a tornado. Oz lands in the Land of Oz (follow me here) and immediately meets Theodora (Mila Kunis), a seemingly good witch with big, intoxicatingly lovely eyes. Her sister Evanora (Rachel Weisz) isnt so good „ some might say wicked, actually. Soon it is learned that Oz must kill the wicked witch in order to claim the kingdom as his own. The films third witch, Glinda (Michelle Williams), helps Oz on his quest, as does a friendly flying monkey (voiced by Mr. Braff) and a china doll (voice of Joey King). Director Sam Raimi (Spider-ManŽ trilogy) has some surprises up his sleeve as he cleverly incorporates what we already know and love about Oz. We delight, no doubt, when we see the wick-ed witchs scary flying monkeys, which are just as frightening now as they were in 1939, and cant help but crack a smile when Oz encounters a lion in the woods. Even better, the glistening 3D visuals bring a surreal quality to Oz the likes of which couldnt even have been dreamed of 20 years ago, let alone when the origi-nal was made. So the film looks fabulous, and the story, though a bit hollow and hammy at times, holds together fairly well. Mr. Franco, Ms. Weisz and Ms. Williams handle their roles as well as can reasonably be expected from an actor working mostly alone on a green screen set. Ms. Kunis isnt as successful: The character arc given to Theodora by writ-ers Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire puts her in a difficult spot that finds her struggling when she should be thriving. She isnt a bad actress, but Ms. Kunis doesnt quite have the range needed here. Oz The Great and PowerfulŽ is a movie that has nothing but respect for its predecessor and tries really hard to be worthy of it. Its not a complete success, but its certainly a noble effort.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 14-20, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Expires 3/30/13Expires 3/30/13 FLORIDA WRITERSPunishment is a pleasure in debut legal thrillerQ Punishment,Ž by Linda Rocker. Wheatmark. 248 pages. $18.95 trade paper; $4.61 Kindle e-book.Retired judge Linda Rocker has set her first novel in West Palm Beach, taking us into the courthouse in sig-nificant architec-tural detail. Hall-ways, stairways, parking areas, judges chambers, courtrooms and other related locations are handled with authority. So are the workings of the court-house: trial procedure from jury selection on through the interaction between judges and other court personnel, bailiffs in particular. In fact, the primary character among many important ones is Casey Portman, bailiff to Judge Janet Kanterman. One plot concern has to do with an explosion in the courthouse that, while doing little damage, stirs things up and puts everyone on edge. The threat of a follow-up to this assault on the system lingers in the background. Who is behind it? What is the motive? The main plot is the sensational trial of a man charged with using his trained attack dog as a deadly weapon in the murder of his wife. As Casey and Judge Kanterman prepare for and move into the proceedings, readers learn that the deceased womans father is attending all phases of the trial. Doubtful that justice will prevail, he is pre-pared to take things into his own hands. Thus, another plot thread is developed that takes us into the mind and actions of this tragically suffering man who is obsessed with vengeance. When Judge Kanterman becomes too ill to preside over this trial, her colleague Judge Barbara Clarke receives the assignment. There are hints that someone might have poisoned the liberal Judge Kanterman to get her off the bench for this trial. Judge Clarkes busy schedule will become even more hectic, when things are already difficult in her office. Ben, her bailiff, has been acting quite strangely, and his friend Casey is aware of it as well. Then Ben is murdered. Is this courthouse doomed to violence? Casey, up to speed on the dogi-cideŽ case, takes Bens place working with Judge Clarke. Things are not well in Judge Clarkes home life, either. Her scoundrel of a hus-band, Ellison Watson, is not only cheating on her but is mixed up in illegal drug activities. These involve not only a shadowy figure named Jack McGinty, but also the murdered bailiff. To add to the complications, a relative of McGintys makes it onto the jury. This young woman somehow gets away with texting the proceedings to Jack. Why does he need to know the details of this trial? The final plot line is the romantic one: Casey slides into an affair with Luke Ander-son, the chief of police. In crafting her complex narrative, the author uses the familiar structural techniques of shift-ing point of view and moving back and forth in time. Each perspective reveals different facts and under-standings about one or more of the plot lines. More importantly, each parcel of plot and perspective cre-ates its own sus-pense. By alternat-ing perspectives while advancing the main plot and the subplots, the author can ratchet up the suspense to greater and greater intensity. In employing this ambitious technique, Ms. Rockers reach sometimes exceeds her grasp. Some transitions create a bit too much disorientation and confusion. On the whole, however, this method serves the author and the reader well. Another dimension of the novel that could be strengthened is the West Palm Beach setting. It needs more texture, more sense of neighborhood, more atmosphere. Indeed, it needs more of what mystery writer Jonathan King, who also sets stories in West Palm Beach, does so well. Characterization is one of Ms. Rockers great strengths. Its easy to believe in her fiction-al personages. Though some, like the charac-terizations of the chief opposing counsels, are based on types, the por-traits become sufficiently individualized. Judge Rocker observed plenty of lawyers during her time on the bench. The same effi-cient, balanced presentation of general and specific traits runs through the fair-ly large cast of characters in her first book. Conceived by its Palm Beach Gardens author as the first novel in a trilogy, PunishmentŽ has more than enough going for it for me to recommend it and look forward to the next installment of Casey Portmans life at court. Readers can find the opening chapters of BlameŽ at the back of the present volume.

Exp. 4-15-13 61st Lake Worth Playhouse season offers variety of shows SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Lake Worth Playhouse has announced its 61st season. This season is so very special for us,Ž said Jodie Dixon Mears, artistic director, in a prepared statement. I feel it truly emanates our goal of having something for absolutely everyone to enjoy.Ž The 2013 season lineup includes:Q In The HeightsŽ July 11 … 28. In The Heights, a musical celebration, tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washing-ton Heights neighborhood „ a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures; where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. Q All Shook UpŽ October 10 … 27. Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. Into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy thatll have you jumpin out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as Heart-break Hotel,Ž Jailhouse Rock,Ž and Dont Be Cruel.Ž The story is based on William Shakespeares 1602 play Twelfth Night. Q The Games AfootŽ November 21 … December 8. It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gil-lette, admired the world over for his lead-ing role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Con-necticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then its up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays. Q Aint MisbehavinŽ January 16 … February 2. The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930s Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is considered one of Broadways best. The inimitable Thomas FatsŽ Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, Aint Mis-behavin evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S. and Europe. One Flew Over The Cuckoos NestŽFebruary 27 … March 16. McMurphy a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in prison. This, he learns, was a mistake when he clashes with the head nurse, a fierce artinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years: he makes a presumed deaf and dumb Indian talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. Q Monty Pythons SpamalotŽ April 10 … 27. Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Spamalot hilariously though not-so-accurately retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention a bevy of beautiful showgirls? The opening nights feature Opening Night EleganceŽ „ a unique show experi-ence at the Playhouse. Available for every opening night patron is a red carpet night of entertainment featuring show specials, a preshow complimentary glass of cham-pagne and appetizer spread, and a chance to hobnob with the press and local officials.

Not this time. Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight. Thoroughly Modern Millie is just what it wants to be: a silly romp so frothy youd think you just stepped into a bubble bath. Make that bathtub gin. If its about as substantial as cotton candy that doesnt stick to your ribs very long, the Maltz Jupiter Theatres co-production with the Paper Mill Playhouse is a delightfully sweet confection whipped up by some very talented folks. Mark S. Hoebee, producing artistic director at the Paper Mill in New Jersey, guides the vivacious cast in this spoof of contrived 1920s musicals „ masking the fact that a lot of skilled hands and considerable resources have been invested in this highly polished product. Although it might upset the flow of the review, no account should go another sentence without recognizing the pitch per-fect performances of the winning and win-some Laurie Veldheer as the plucky, spunky heroine and the inspired clowning of Burke Moses as her stuffed shirt of a boss. Back to them later. The 2002 Tony winner for best musical (based on the 1967 film starring Julie Andrews, Carol Channing and a dewy Mary Tyler Moore) combines songs from the film, tunes from Gilbert &Sullivan and Tchaikovsky, along with an original score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, Or Change) with lyrics by Dick Scanlan, and a deceptively well-made script by Scanlan and screen-writer Richard Morris. The show opens as Millie, fresh off the bus from Kansas and dressed in Dorothy Gales gingham dress, arrives in New York in 1922 at the height of the sophisticated Jazz Age noted for flappers, slinky dresses and speakeasies. Initially cowed by the big city, she resolves to make her future by marrying her rich boss „ an odd life choice since she has yet to find a job. An a vowed modern woman,Ž Millie asks whats love got to do with it? „ even after bumping into the hunky but seemingly neer-do-well street hustler Jimmy Smith (Jeff Kready) who clearly is fated to end up with her at the curtain. But after getting a bobbed haircut and a fashion makeover, Millie finds room at the boarding house run by the sinister dragon lady Mrs. Meers (Lenora Nemetz), then makes friends with a Pollyanna naf Miss Dorothy (Ashley Kate Adams) and wins a post at Sincere Trust Insurance Company when her steno skills impress the hand-some but fuddy duddy boss Trevor Gray-don (Moses). She pursues Graydon as Smith pursues her, although the outcome is obvious to everyone in the audience if not the charac-ters. Amid joyful tap numbers and soulful ballads, the cast roams a pre-Depression New York City with such plot develop-ments as Mrs. Meers heading a white slav-ery gang, targeting orphans like Miss Doro-thy, abetted by two immigrants from Hong Kong (Billy Bustmante and James Seol). Threaded throughout the proceedings is a Texas Guinan-style fairy godmother Muzzy Van Hossmere (Brenda Braxton), a wealthy widow and international chanteuse who gives the show a reason to set scenes in Manhattan penthouse parties and ritzy nightclubs. Hoebee melds the actors and a topdrawer creative team into a consistent and seamless tone that pokes gentle fun at the foolishness while never humiliating it. His chief aide is choreographer Denis Jones, a Carbonell winner for his work on the Maltzs The Boyfriend.Ž He quotes every period dance move with his own hoof-pounding spin and lavishes the audience with tap dance numbers at every opportu-nity. His flashiest tap work involves a steno pool, seated at rolling desks, tapping madly as they type. The style of the show is set from the opening number by costume designer Gail Boldoni who must have been given the larg-est chunk of the production budget: scores of period outfits that revel in thigh-high cocktail dresses with spangles and long fringes, as well as stylish three-piece suits topped off with fedoras. She has an off-the-wall taste in color palettes, but the choices work, ranging from office workers in bright orange shirts and deep blue vests, to Gray-dons dark suit set off with pronounced red and green pin stripes. The scenic design by Michael Schweikardt creates an urban Art Deco Fantasy-land with towering skyscrapers. Sound designer Marty Mets once again adds in subtle sound cues like the squeaking wheels of the laundry carts that Meers uses to transport her kidnap victims. Another major asset is the return for a ninth Maltz show of musical director Helen Gregory who molded the casts vocal work as well as leads an eight-piece pit band that nails every Charleston, cakewalk, faux oper-etta duet and slambang production number right from the razzamatazz overture. Back to Veldheer. She exudes Millies cross of shaky self-confidence and appeal-ing vulnerability reminiscent of Rachel McAdams. Besides being a full-throated singer and fine dancer, the petite blue-eyed Veldheer has the charisma needed to hold her own alone on stage for wistful solos like JimmyŽ and Gimme Gimmee,Ž as well that invisible spotlight that makes her stand out as she leads the large cast in produc-tion numbers. This is the role that made the phenomenal Sutton F oster a from-thechorus-to-overnight-star. While it might not catapult Veldheer as high, anyone who sees her work here will remember her for a long time to come. Moses creates a stuffed shirt Brylcreemed Graydon who pulls back just this side of being a buffoon. With an arched eyebrow or a well-timed double take, Moses some-how takes Graydon over the top without chewing the scenery, to smash up two cliches. His Graydon isnt the self-centered boor that Moses created as Gaston on Broadways Beauty and the Beast, but they could be cousins. While holding himself with the utmost of dignity, Graydons eyes communicate that thoughts are sloughing their way through his brain neurons until they finally land in comprehension. His nimble baritone-bass singing in the tortu-ous tongue-twisting patter song The Speed Test,Ž in which he dictates a letter, is hys-terically funny. The mezzo-voiced Braxton is adequate as an actress in the book scenes. But as a singer-dancer, she sublimely combines sul-triness and ebullience in her big numbers, Only In New YorkŽ and Long As Im Here With You.Ž Nemetz has also been given a license to mug as the intentionally stereotyped Asian villainess (in fact, Meers is a former Occi-dental chorine in disguise). But this time, the scenery chewing „ while expertly done „ wears out its welcome pretty quickly. Still, she has the musical comedy chops to belt out her vaudevillian They Dont KnowŽ and joins with the two henchmen in a Chinese-language lampoon on Jolsons Mammy.Ž Kready is credible whether showing off to Millie with his nickel-edged Runyonese or privately crooning lovesick ballads. Adams has a gorgeous soprano that she lets loose in the hilarious Nelson Eddy-Jeannette McDonald number with Moses, Im Falling In Love With Someone.Ž A quick note: Almost all the principal actors are New York actors, but while they dont have household names like Che-noweth, these are Broadway vets such as Nemetz whose career encompasses origi-nal companies of Cabaret and Chicago, Braxton who has a Tony nom from Smokey Joes Caf, Moses with roles in Beauty and the Beast and Kiss Me Kate. Kready has played in Billy Elliot and even Veldheer comes from Newsies. Frankly, some people will want something a little more hearty; Millie is not high on many theatergoers list for a revival. But what this crew has created gleams like a Pepsodent smile and rates as tasty a dish of comfort food as you could wish. Q The show runs through March 24.

Q „ Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE From investment banker to restaurateur, Charlie Soo is now doing what he knows best. Although Mr. Soo is the owner and chef of Talay Thai off of PGA Boulevard, his father advised him to stay away from two industries „ the restaurant business and engineering. My father always said I needed to learn how money moves and then I could do anything,Ž says Mr. Soo. Mr. Soo listened to his father for several years while he was an investment banker, but he says the economy took a turn for the worse, caus-ing him to make a career change. I was off to the culinary world in 2002,Ž says Mr. Soo. I wanted to learn any-thing I could from anybody. It wasnt about the money, I wanted the experience.Ž Learning from his aunt who owns a Thai restaurant, Mr. Soo not only gained culinary expe-rience, but soon became the general manager of Nans Thai in Atlanta. Also in Atlanta, Mr. Soo enhanced his culinary background by working with master chefs Tom Catherall and Joey Riley. With Mr. Soos passion for accounting still intact, he returned to South Florida where he worked at Legal Sea Foods for two years. I got the American experience from Legal Sea Foods and learned the business side of the industry,Ž he says. Not only did he use his accounting skills at Legal Sea Foods, but he says that he also learned skills for keeping food such as fish fresh. Mr. Soo has applied these skills at his first restaurant, Talay Thai. In 2008, Mr. Soo opened Talay Thai, where he focuses on a friendly family environment that includes his mother and father. Talay Thai offers authentic sauces, lobster pad Thai and coconut-lemongrass soup, among other dishes. Mr. Soo also plans a restaurant in Jupiter named Aah Loi Thai and Sushi. Look for it to open in mid-May. Im so excited for this new restaurant to open,Ž he says, We picked the name Aah Loi because it means delicious in Thai. We thought it was perfect!Ž Name: Charlie Soo Age: 40 Original hometown: Los Angeles Restaurant: Talay Thai, 7100 Fairway Drive, Palm Beach Gardens Mission: My personal mission is to survive. With joking aside, our goal is to serve qual-ity food with fresh ingredients at a reasonable price and in a sanitary environment.Ž Cuisine: Thai cuisine Training: Mr. Soo gained his culinary experience by working with master chefs such as Tom Catherall and Joey Riley. Mr. Soo also was general manager at Nans Thai in Atlanta and restaurant manager at Legal Sea foods for two years. What is your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear Treadsafe. Any other chef who doesnt say that isnt really a chef!Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? My weakness is definitely chocolate bars and soda! Thats my favorite.Ž What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a chef and restaurant owner? If you open a restaurant, never try to be like someone else.
