Dr. Mary Claire King, a brilliant geneticist, believes there is a genetic link to the type of cancer that afflicts people like Annie, but few believe her and even fewer support her. As the years pass, the illness reaches Annie and changes not only her body, but her relationship with her husband and her son, both ill-equipped to deal with the mayhem that descends upon them. Remarkably, Annie rises up and fights against the odds as she is dealt, learning as she goes something that she believes might save her. Dr. King also manages to find something of unimaginable significance as slowly, inexorably these two womenÂs stories begin to converge, until the heroic and uplifting finale. Mr. Bernstein, the real-life Annie Parker and some cast members will be attending. Opening night festivities will take place Thursday, April 4, at Muvico Parisian at CityPlace, followed by a party on the rooftop of Two City Plaza. Ms. Parker will be at the festival, as will one of the ÂLost Boys of Sudan,ÂŽ according to Ms. Emerman. The festival closes Thursday, April 11, with the U.S. premiere of ÂChez Upshaw,ÂŽ a comedy directed by Bruce Mason and starring Illeana Douglas and Kevin Pollak.

ÂIÂve seen some really grow up over the years,ÂŽ she said. And along the way she has seen some major change. ÂIÂd say the biggest change is that the quality of films is so much better. WeÂre well known. Look at how technology has changed since our very first festi-val, and our outreach to the world,ÂŽ she said. Perhaps one thing that has not grown at the festival is her budget. ÂI only wish we had the budget we had back then. IÂve basically given up everything IÂve ever owned,ÂŽ Ms. Emer-man said. Most festivals have a seven-figure budget. ÂIÂm doing this for around a hundred thousand, give or take. IÂd be happy with $600,000,ÂŽ she said. To that end, she has called in every favor she has coming, and has focused the festival away from star turns and more toward the people behind the scenes. ÂIÂm trying to make this about film and filmmakers and having some fun, too,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe want to show them, when they travel here, a really good time.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYTomas Young and the end of the body of warTomas Young was in the fifth day of his first deployment to Iraq when he was struck by a sniperÂs bullet in BaghdadÂs Sadr City. The single bullet paralyzed him from the chest down, and changed his life forever. Now, nine years later, at the age of 33, Tomas has decided to end his life. He announced recently that he will soon stop his nourishment, which comes in the form of liquid through a feeding tube. Tomas was the subject of the awardwinning documentary ÂBody of War,ÂŽ made by legendary TV talk-show host Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro. The 2007 film follows TomasÂ rehabilita-tion, struggles with his injuries and his political awakening to become one of the most prominent anti-war U.S. vet-erans of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. He was first moved to action by the efforts of Cindy Sheehan to speak with President George W. Bush while he was on vacation at his so-called ranch in Crawford, Texas. SheehanÂs son, Casey, was killed in Baghdad, on the same day that Tomas was shot. She wanted to ask Pres. Bush, ÂFor what noble cause did my son die?ÂŽ I asked Tomas if anything would change his mind about his decision to end his life. ÂNo,ÂŽ he said, adding that if he were not in such intense, constant pain, then he would not be taking this course. ÂWe wouldnÂt be having this conversation,ÂŽ he said. This week, Tomas released a letter titled ÂThe Last Letter: A Message to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney From a Dying VeteranÂŽ In it, Tomas wrote, ÂYou may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plun-der and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Ameri-cans Â„ my fellow veterans Â„ whose future you stole.ÂŽ Phil Donahue has stayed in touch with Tomas for years since making ÂBody of War.ÂŽ Donahue told me the making of the film was a Âspiritual expe-rience... a chapter of our lives.ÂŽ He says he understands TomasÂ decision: ÂFour years after being shot in Sadr City, he sustained a pulmonary embolism. So he struggles now to speak, although you can understand him. He has diffi-culty grasping silverware, his opposable thumbs are at a serious deficit... so he has to be fed. When he and his wife, Claudia, have gone out to dinner, she would look for a corner of the restau-rant, so when she fed him, they wouldnÂt be stared at. He now has pressure sores, with exposed bone. He recently had a colostomy, so he has a bag on the side of his body. He is fed through a tube, and every other commercial he sees on television is about food. It is beyond awful what Tomas has sustained. He now lies immobile, in a dark bedroom in Kansas City, dutifully cared for by his wife, Claudia, who has been with him for five years.ÂŽ He added: ÂThroughout this whole ordeal, I have been with him often enough to know, he wanted to live. That is what makes it extra sad. He wanted to live. He has fought back against every setback, from the inadequate treatment at the Veterans Administra-tion, to his own PTSD. Now the situa-tion is so dire, that no one who is close to him can claim to not understand: He has given up.ÂŽ Donahue reflected: ÂWhen I look down on this young man, all I can think of is President Bush saying, ÂBring Âem on.Â There is almost no remorse. EverybodyÂs hiding. Richard Perle doesnÂt get around much anymore. Cheney is speaking for six-figure fees. I donÂt know where Wolfowitz is. Bush is behind a well-secured home.ÂŽ Tomas recently appeared via video call from his home in Kansas City, Mo., before a group in Ridgefield, Conn., where Phil Donahue screened ÂBody of WarÂŽ and asked Tomas questions. It was at this February event that Tomas publicly announced his intention to die. When asked how he wants to be remembered, Tomas Young replied: ÂThat I fought as hard as I could to keep young men and women away from military service. I fought as hard as I could to keep another me from coming back to Iraq. That is what I want to be remembered for.ÂŽ Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

She is the co-author of ÂThe Silenced Majority,ÂŽ a New York Times best-seller. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe beetle and the pipeline m c f w Â amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly When progressives talk of government, it is in an alluring can-do spir-it. Making the case for more spend-ing, President Barack Obama invokes the 19th century as a heroic age that built government-supported railroads. MSNBC hosts pose in front of monu-mental 20th-century public-works proj-ects and speak of what all of us can do together. This is all well and good as nostalgia, but is utterly detached from the spirit and the practices of 21st-century government. We donÂt excel at building things. We excel at studying things, and putting up obstacles to building them. It is not the age of the engineer but of the bureaucrat, the lawyer and the environ-mental activist. Consider the proposed Keystone pipeline to connect the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, with the Gulf Coast. The Obama administration has been happy to keep the nationÂs foremost shovel-ready project in a state of sus-pended animation for years, so it can be constantly studied toward no end what-soever except placating people with a theological objection to pipelines. For a taste of the 21st-century American attitude toward building things, I direct your attention to Volume 2 Â„ not Volume 1, 3 or 4 Â„ of the Draft Sup-plemental Environmental Impact State-ment, not to be confused with the three prior environmental studies. Therein is a section considering the pipelineÂs impact on endangered and potentially endangered animals and plants. It evaluates the effect on every-thing from the SpragueÂs Pipit to the blowout penstemon, although special attention is devoted to the American burying beetle. Just like your congress-man, the beetle is a Âfederally protected invertebrate.ÂŽ It lives in a handful of counties to be traversed by the pipeline in Nebraska and South Dakota. Its habitat could be disrupted. It could be hit by trucks. If the pipeline heats the ground, beetles burrowed into the soil for the winter could be fooled into emerging prema-turely. Artificial lighting could expose it to increased predation. Not to worry. Keystone has been in discussions with federal and state offi-cials about minimizing the impact. Prior to construction, the beetles should be trapped and relocated, in keeping, of course, with the Nebraska American Burying Beetle Trapping Protocol. But not in South Dakota. ÂTrapping and relocating American burying beetles,ÂŽ the statement explains, Âis not autho-rized in South Dakota.ÂŽ Vegetation should be mowed to no more than 8 inches tall to render the affected areas temporarily unsuit-able to the beetles. Carcasses should be removed, lest beetles return to eat. Lighting should be shielded to avoid attracting beetles. All workers should be trained in beetle protection and issued Âa full color Endangered Species Card, which includes a picture of the Ameri-can burying beetle and a summary of relevant conservation information.ÂŽ This is the case of only one insect glancingly affected by one project, but it stands for an epoch of red tape and hostility to development. The betting now is that the Obama administration will eventually green-light the pipeline. If it does get built, it probably wonÂt be in operation until 2016, when the original completion date was 2012. We get ever more adept at the perverse art of not building things.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickAs the veterinarian on ÂGood Morning America,ÂŽ IÂm always hearing about and looking at pictures of other peopleÂs pets. I truly enjoy hearing about the love people share with their companion animals. But being recognized so frequently also means I hear a great deal about the things that bother pet lovers. The other day I was thinking about those annoy-ances that apply to dogs, and thinking about the knowledge IÂm always sharing with people. IÂve written entire books sharing tips and cutting-edge informa-tion, but hereÂs a short list of seven secrets I wish more dog owners knew: Q Secret No. 1: Shedding is a top complaint of dog lovers, but when peo-ple choose a low-shed pet, theyÂre usu-ally barking up the wrong tree. The kind of dog who sheds the least? A small one (less dog, less fur) with long fur (long fur stays in longer than short fur) whoÂs kept clipped short (less left on to clean up when it does eventually fall out). Q Secret No. 2: Preventing accidents can save more than your pet Â„ it saves money, too. Veterinarians like me hate to treat Â„ and even worse, to lose Â„ pets whoÂve suffered accidents that can be easily prevented. By keeping all medications Â„ human and pet prescrip-tions, and all over-the-counters Â„ safely locked away, youÂll protect your pet from this No. 1 poisoning hazard. Q Secret No. 3: Stop the post-bath shake from getting water all over your bathroom and you. ItÂs simple: That water-spraying shake starts at the nose, and if you hold your dogÂs muzzle until you can get a towel over him, youÂll pre-vent him from shaking. Q Secret No. 4: Getting old doesnÂt need to mean misery for your dog. Working with your veterinarian to pro-vide your old dog Âneutraceuticals,ÂŽ such as omega-3 oil and glucosamine, along with prescription pain medica-tions (such as Rimadyl) can put the bounce back in your old dogÂs step. Ask your veterinarian! Q Secret No. 5 : Most people want to take advantage of the incredible advances in veterinary medicine, from stem cell treatments to chemothera-py, but many simply canÂt afford them. The solution for them is a pet health insurance policy, which can cover the bulk of costs for an expensive accident or ill-ness without forcing any com-promises on care. Q Secret No. 6: ItÂs easy to save money on pet care with-out shortchanging your pet. While you shouldnÂt skip well-ness exams (they can spot a problem when itÂs still easier and less expensive to treat) or lower the quality of your dogÂs food (good nutrition means good health), you can save money by price-shopping for prescription medications (but do give your veterinarian the option of match-ing prices), buying items in bulk and sharing with others, keeping your pet thin (and therefore healthier) and even bartering for your petÂs needs. Q Secret No. 7: ÂYearly shotsÂŽ are no longer recommended. Current advice is to tailor vaccines to fit your pet. Most all dogs should now get ÂcoreÂŽ vaccines on a three-year cycle for the most com-mon and most deadly diseases, includ-ing parvovirus and distemper. All dogs need rabies shots on a schedule set by law. But other vaccines may depend on a dogÂs breed type, size or the region where you live, and youÂll need to go over the options with your veterinarian. ItÂs not hard or expensive to make life easier and better for both you and your dog. You just have to know the secrets!

Gannon, constitutional tax collector for Palm Beach County, has announced that her office received a Silver ADDY Award from the American Advertising Federation Âs Greater Fort Lauderdale chapter. The award honors creative excellence in marketing and advertising. Ms. GannonÂs REAL ID public education effort won in the category for pub-lic service in an integrated campaign. ÂThis is a great creative campaign. It gets peopleÂs attention. And most importantly, it alerts the public about the federal REAL ID mandate and deliv-ers tools that help,ÂŽ said Ms. Gannon in a prepared statement. ÂWe are honored by the Advertising FederationÂs award for our effort.ÂŽ REAL ID is a federal law designed to fight terrorism and reduce fraud. To get a REAL ID, a person must pres-ent Homeland Security-required docu-ments proving birth, Social Security number and residence. Ms. GannonÂs office created a multicultural community toolkit. Items include REAL ID checklist envelopes, fliers, posters, web banner advertise-ments, informational magnets, book-marks, and Public Service Announce-ments. Utility bill inserts, along with city and community publications, helped get the REAL ID message out to local residents. Posters were placed in every Tri-Rail train and Palm Tran bus in the county. Local tax collectors began issuing REAL ID driver licenses and state identification cards when the Florida Legis-lature transferred these duties in 2010. By the end of 2014, anyone born after Dec. 1, 1964, must have a REAL ID to board a commercial plane or enter a federal building. Everyone else has until Dec. 1, 2017. REAL ID tool kits can be downloaded at the www.taxcollectorpbc.com or are available by calling 355-2264. The tax collectorÂs REAL ID campaign has also earned other awards, including the Gold Coast Public Rela-tions CouncilÂs Bernays Award and the Public Relations Society of AmericaÂs Palm Awards, both honoring excellence in public relations. The ADDY Awards is recognized as the advertising indus-tryÂs largest and most recognized com-petition.

Prior to join-ing Harris Interactive, he was a man-ager and founding team member of J.D. Power and Associate's Recreation and Financial Services Practices. "Loggerhead Marinelife Center is one of the most visited cultural attractions in Palm Beach County,ÂŽ Mr. Lighton said. ÂMore than 215,000 people come each year to our incredible beachside campus to learn about our work in pro-tecting the endangered sea turtles that come to our shores.ÂŽ The Juno Beach veterinary and hospital staff rehabilitated literally thou-sands of sick and injured sea turtles over the 30 years since the museum that became Loggerhead Marinelife Cen-ter was founded. The centerÂs research biologists monitor one of the most pro-lific sea turtle nesting beaches in the world. The 2012 nesting season marked the highest nesting number in the cen-terÂs 22 years of monitoring. ÂI am delighted to work with one of the most advanced sea turtle research teams on our planet," said Mr. Lighton.

Or head for the highway to West Palm Beach, where the large, new Palm Beach Mall beckoned with depart-ment stores and restaurants. More than 40 years later, an old-timer needs to squint during visits to the Glades.Squinting allows one to focus on not what is there, but rather what was there.Through the soft-focus, one can see past the botched additions and blotchy paint jobs and remember the manicured lawn of Grandpa Fred SimmonsÂ and Miss BeulaÂs tidy little green house in Chosen, a neighborhood of Belle Glade that Beula, his second wife, never, ever should have chosen for herself, if only because of the steady rumble of traffic on nearby State Road 715. Come winter, the air was hung thick with the ash from the sugar cane fires and was sweet with the stench of the bagasse mulling at the sugar mill. That much is still there. Beula hated that, and said it irritated her allergies. ItÂs why she left the Glades for Jupiter. But one whiff of that and I return to my childhood. More than 40 years later, my momÂs car leaves Chosen and heads north onto 715 toward Pahokee. Her Volvo station wagon is fully climate-controlled. She was in her 20s when we made that regular road trip from Fort Myers to the Glades, and when I look toward the driverÂs seat, I do not see a woman in her 70s. I still see the young mother who was anxious for her family. This was the area where my dad was raised, and she had much affection for his family. The road into Pahokee looks much as it did in the Â60s and Â70s, though the billboard that hailed the city as the home of country singer Mel Tillis is long gone. Elegant royal palms still mark the entrance to Pahokee. ThereÂs the Beverly home, now home to Dr. Hatton, with pillars that remind you of Tara. Lawn jockeys guard the driveway, and you smile at the sight. ItÂs still beautiful. Up the road sits another home that has all but collapsed. Turn right at the drugstore, then left onto Second Street and thereÂs Tommie Lee DuBoseÂs house. Squint, and you can see the beautiful daylilies and Gerberas she and her husband cultivated. Open your eyes and you see weeds. Turn right again, this time onto Banyan Avenue, squint, and Aunt Cleo Douthit walks out the side door of the house built by her husband, Bob. The screen door slams and its louvers clatter.Open your eyes and Cleo is gone, but you smile at the sight of a happy home.We take a photograph of the well-tended house built of heart pine and cypress to last the ages, and muse that itÂs now 72 years old. The avocado trees Cleo started from seed are heavy with fruit.She and Bob would be proud.We pause and we look.Then my mom puts the car in gear and drives forward without looking back.

NOT IN MICHIGAN ANYMORE BY KEVIN PIERCE SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY I BEGIN WITH A DISCLAIMER: DESPITE HAVING LIVED HERE NEARLY 50 YEARS, I WASNÂT born here (a condition which the real old-timers still greet with, ÂHowÂre you liking it so far?ÂŽ) My birthplace is Ironwood, Mich., an Upper Peninsula town as far north of Southwest Florida as you can go without crossing into a foreign country that puts cheese and gravy on its French fries. I came to Fort Myers in 1964 to start first grade while my parents started an AM radio station. In searching for a photo to accompany this, I noted, for the first time, a Wizard of Oz quality in my childhood photos: all pre-Florida pictures are small and black-and-white, while everything after the move to Florida is larger and in color. The northÂs wicked witch mustÂve been squashed flat when we plopped down. The photos show these items of note:We didnÂt just have vacant lots in the Â60s and Â70s; we had vacant LAND. Huge hundred-acre fields of sandspurs, meadowlarks and black snakes. We had woods of palmetto, slash pine and fire-control paths cut through sugar-sand. And our swim-ming hole was the rock pits that would later become Lakes Park. These were the all-day (and sometimes all-night) stomping grounds for me and my friends. Screen-time then meant outside the porchand window-screens, and the fields, woods and rock pits are where we spent it. With first grade to senior year of high school in Lee County Schools, the photos show many folks IÂm happy to still be in touch with, both classmates and teachers (in the past year, IÂve run into teachers from fourth grade, fifth grade and 12th grade Â„ even had one over for dinner). I donÂt remember what year the air conditioning came to the schools, but the smells of the years before were equal parts perspira-tion, purple mimeographs and brown paper towels. There are pictures of my 1967 Firebird convertible, 1968 MG-B convertible and 13-foot Boston Whaler with a 50-horsepower motor (only rated for a 40). The boat probably racked up more miles as I could drive it before I was old enough for the cars. This trio of tops-down conveyances will likely keep me in close contact with a dermatologist. Some pictures remind me of the areaÂs disorienting growth. ÂWhy did they build it so far south of town?ÂŽ was a question that would be posed of American Depart-ment Store (its building is now a storage facility in central Fort Myers), Edison Mall (which will always be ÂThe MallÂŽ to those of us here when it was built) and later the Bell Tower Shops (which went up near where the NASA tracking station used to host annual field trips for our science classes). The pictures remember Miracle Lanes, RaymondÂs Rollerland and Chicken Unlimited. HickeyÂs Creek, Fisheating Creek and Camp Franklin Miles. Lovers Key, Cayo Costa and New Pass. They remind me that Colonial Boulevard used to be two lanes and so dramatically sloped for drainage that it was a challenge to keep from falling into the ditch. They remind me of the next door neighbor who took me to see the first moon launch at Cape Canaveral and of the radio-station privileges that let my family have the run of a new Disney attraction near Orlando days before it opened to the public. I can only hope that when my Lee County-born daughter and son (who attended, respectively, the same middle school and elementary school I did) look back at their childhood photos and note the early-years shift from old color prints to newer digi-tal images, that they are taken back to the Â90s and 2000s, and that as Sunshine State natives, they can play ÂI remember when...ÂŽ with a place they still fondly call home.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 NEWS A9 H MEGROWN STORIES THE MOUNTAIN WOMAN OF FORT MYERS BEACH BY ARTIS HENDERSON AHENDERSON@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM I MOVED TO FORT MYERS BEACH FROM THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTH GEORGIA IN THE SUMmer of 1987, at a time when the beach was barely middle class. This was before DiamondHead, before the yacht marina, before property values soared and beach residents found themselves unlikely millionaires. We drove down from Georgia in a brown Oldsmobile with seven cats in the back seat. By the time I started school in the fall the salt air had eaten through the paint and rust spread like leprosy across the hood. Not that we minded. On the beach, everybod yÂs car seemed to be on its last leg. Over time I traded my mountain ways for the tidal flow of coastal living. I learned to love stingrays and fighting conchs. My country accent faded. Some-where along the line Â„ itÂs hard to say when Â„ the beach changed, too. The shrimpers and drunks and itinerants started disappearing, replaced by men and women in expensive outdoors wear. The newcomers bought the old beach cot-tages and added expensive additions. Or they tore them down and started over, covering the beach sand beneath a layer of fancy pavers. Suddenly there was a feeling of having been discovered, in the way that North America was Âdiscov-ered,ÂŽ i.e., by people not already living there. It seemed as if someone had stum-bled on our backwater community and realized it could be a high-end vacation spot, if only we would bulldoze the old beach shacks and get rid of the locals. I remember the exact moment when I knew the beachÂs image had changed. I was applying for a job and the man interviewing me said, ÂFort Myers Beach? You must be big money.ÂŽ I laughed and before I could stop myself said, ÂOh, no. WeÂre beach trash from way back.ÂŽ Not that the changes to the beach have been bad. WeÂre incorporated now and we have lovely public parks and a beautiful Times Square. But I fear what we have lost in our rush to remake ourselves. To create room for the mammoth duplexes built by developers and carrying price tags in the $2 million range, weÂve had to tear down the old cot-tages, the dream homes of another gen-eration. WeÂve sacrificed the beach as an affordable destination, a place where people like my grandparentsÂ„who grew up poor by Lake Okeechobee and worked hard all their livesÂ„could buy a lit-tle house on the water. Instead I worry that our newer, cleaner version of Fort Myers Beach with its high property values and elite boating clubs will only let in a cer-tain type of person. A person not from around here. But who am I to say anything? The moment I could, I left the beach. I went to college in the northeast and stayed there, away from Florida, away from home, away from the com-munity that raised me. To stay would have meant acknowledging my low-rent roots. It would have meant owning where IÂm from, not just the stretch of white sand that fronts the gulf but everything that comes with it Â„ the Oldsmobile and the too-many cats and the seedier parts of FMB living. I left because no one up north would know what it means to be beach trash. Only now, after many years away, have I come to appreciate the unique character of Fort Myers Beach and the blessing it was to grow up there. The beach has a distinct saltiness that works its way into your bones. IÂm glad itÂs in mine. Q Left: Artis Henderson at 2, talking in complete sentences and sounding like Patsy Cline.

By the light of one lamp, my mother sat in the front room of our compact two-bedroom house, working her way through plastic bags filled with piecework. SheÂd stitch pocket after pocket or crotch after crotch onto clothes sporting labels for brands like Ocean Pacific and L.L. Bean. Long after the rest of the lights had gone out, the lamp stayed lit, and the sewing machineÂs vibrations carried gently along the wood-framed floor, lulling my brother and sister and me to sleep. It was 1979, or Â81 or Â85. It was all of them. This was the height of HialeahÂs factory phase Â„ before NAFTA took our sweatshop jobs and exported them to sweatier shops in other countries. Then, like today, a few quarters would treat you to a sticky, flaky guava pastelito at a bakery around the corner Â„ any corner. Car alarms, the train whistle from a mile away, roosters and the cacophony of Cubans communicating, like trumpets, filled the air the way the smell of roast pork would (and still does) on Christmas Eve. My father, a foreman in a shoe factory that produced parts for Nike and those generic sneakers you used to find in bins at the general store, spoke no English. The Anglo-Saxon company owners had this little Cuban guy in charge of a band of Haitians who spoke neither English nor Spanish. ÂMa-cheen gwan: Bro-keng. Ma-cheen two, macheen tree: Gud.ÂŽ My father described the limited vocalizations needed to run his crew as he sipped his ceremonial single can of Busch beer before helping to prepare dinner. Sometimes he drank Pabst, but always only just one can. If my mother was saddled with too many bags of piecework Â„ or worse, if she had a late night at one of the many dreadful factories that came in and out of her life like disappointing lovers, my father would take on the task of making thin steaks with black beans and rice for the three of us. Later, weÂd find him quietly enjoying a can of sardines emptied onto a plate of white rice. Those were Fonzie years, Mork from Ork years. Box ball and football games with the Larrinaga and Hodgkins and Gonzalez and Mills kids in the middle of the street years. They were the last years of the white folk who had stuck around our neigh-borhood. Those were the last years of the Kellys the kindly World War Two veteran and his wife across the street. A substantial man with warm Irish eyes, Mr. Kelly was missing an arm and made nothing of it. He helped my dad and my Uncle Jorge run thick PVC pipes to tie into the city sewer system after some decree came down requiring everyone to upgrade their plumbing. They were Rush and REO Speedwagon and Billy Joel years. And sure, they were Celia Cruz and Johnny Ventura and K.C. and the Sunshine Band years too. Those years took place everywhere in America. But from my vantage point, they took place during the great Cuban-Miami rising of the 1980s. It was in that place where an angry old woman once admonished me, ÂYouÂre in America, speak American.ÂŽ It was also where my friends would pelt each other with rotting mangoes and share tangerines or bananas that sat on the edges of our property lines. ItÂs where we yelled after the ice-cream truck, ÂEhhhh-Stope! Ehhh-Stope!ÂŽ laughing our heads off as we mocked our eldersÂ accents. ItÂs also the place where Miss Bohr read a story I had written for an assignment in sixth grade. It was a book, about eight pages of loose-leaf papers stapled together, written in the neatest penmanship I could command. It was a complete narrative that ended with a doomed fleet of Earthlings discovering a planet of peaceful alien monkey-men. Miss Bohr gave me a perfect score. Those were ÂG.I JoeÂŽ and ÂA-TeamÂŽ years. The sewing machine was set in a thick wooden table. My mother piled one stack of fabric pieces to her left and another stack, the smaller pieces, on a square bench next to her squat, swiveling six-legged chair of metal and wood. SheÂd bring two pieces together, matching them up just so. Moving quickly, sheÂd set the pieces down in the needleÂs path. Then sheÂd push. At just the right pressure. Fingertips on the fabric, her foot would ease onto the exquisite steel pedal. SheÂd guide the fabric along the tableÂs surface toward the back of the machine. Chug-chug-chug-chug-chug, Squeeeeeal. The wooden table, in turn, would resist her fingertips and push them forward, ever so slightly, back toward her. For a long time, this was the tableÂs shadow war. But eventu-ally, by the ÂSeinfeldÂŽ and ÂFrasierÂŽ years, she couldnÂt deny the pain in her hands. The woodÂs patient offensive had worn her down. It was just as well. By then, the factories to the east of the railroad tracks were becoming vacant, and the people pined for the crappy jobs of the past. My father, after 22 years of service with only five sick days (when a Ma-cheen lopped off the top of his index finger), was let go from the Gator Shoe Corporation. He worked for as long as he could on other factory crews. By then he had no more use for the end-of-day brewski. The kids had grown up. Long after I had left home, during ÂWeedsÂŽ and Anthony Soprano years, Miss Bohr tracked me down on Facebook. She mentioned the book I had written, and the impression it had made on her. Later that night, I thought of my motherÂs fingertips, bent as they are, at 45-degree angles. She had fought that wood, in large measure, to keep my siblings and me in private Catholic school. We were in a ÂMiami ViceÂŽ and ÂScarfaceÂŽ world, where some gang member had been stabbed to death at Babcock Park a block away from the house, and some other guy had been shot behind the video store and pizzeria around the corner in the other direction. She trusted the church and its teachers to protect us from this dangerous, foreign world. The piece-work helped pay the price of tuition for the three of us. Women like Miss Bohr and her bosses Â„ the Sisters of Mercy Â„ held up their part of the bargain. My motherÂs unrelenting fingertips had kept us safe.

He wasn Ât mad at Khruschev or Castro or Kennedy. Not that sunny Saturday afternoon. It was October 1962. I had just turned 10 the month before. My chances of reaching 11 were, perhaps, about to evaporate in a nuclear holocaust. We lived on the second story of a two-unit, twostory apartment building on Livingston Avenue near the north end of St. Petersburg, across Tampa Bay from MacDill Air Force Base. That Â„ the base, not the apartment Â„ would have been a prime target for the Soviet Union if war came. My parents had jugs and bottles of water and cans of food, saving in case we survived into some dystopian, apocalyptic, post-attack nightmare. My mom worked the midnight shift at SpurlockÂs Diner out on 34th Street. My dad, at that time, may have been driving a cab. Dad was at work. Mom was exhausted from working on her feet all night and was sleeping. I loved three things in 1962 Â„ baseball, movies and books. Still do. That morning, as the world teetered on the precipice of war, I woke my mom and asked permission to go to the movies and for some tip money, the nickels, dimes and quarters she earned at the diner. She said yes. I sup-pose. I grabbed some change, opened the screen door and walked down wooden steps, through a small back yard, up an alley and a couple of blocks to Fourth Street and a bus stop. Took the bus downtown to Williams Park, the bus depot. Then walked a few blocks to either the Florida or State theater. Maybe I watched ÂThe Longest DayÂŽ or ÂBirdman of AlcatrazÂŽ or perhaps ÂThe Miracle Worker,ÂŽ 1962 releases which I vaguely recall seeing in theaters. CanÂt say for sure which one I watched that October Saturday. After the movie, I retraced the route. Alone. In 1962, 10-year-old kids did things like that. Meanwhile, my dad had returned home. My brother and sister were there. Not me. Not as World War III edged closer. As I walked up the stairs and then opened that screen door I could hear my dad yelling at my mom. How could she let me go out at such a time? The Soviets, of course, never fired a nuclear missile at MacDill Air Force Base, a few miles from our Livingston Avenue apartment. It was in that little two-bedroom apartment, a place without air conditioning, that I also learned a little about race relations. Florida was still segregated. I attended white Rio Vista Elementary. At the time kids often said things such as ÂEenie, meenie, minie-moe pick a tiger by the toe.ÂŽ At least thatÂs what I said. Other kids, alas, substituted the ÂnÂŽ word for tiger. I was appalled. That word wasnÂt used in our home. So I asked my parents about this. WouldnÂt these other kids, I asked, get in trouble if their parents knew they used a bad word for colored people? My parents explained, as much as they or anybody could, that the parents likely used that bad word and taught it to their kids. Mom and DadÂs message was this: Some of my classmates were being taught to hate. I didnÂt understand it then. Heck, I still donÂt.But thanks, Mom and Dad, for trying to explain it.My dad passed away in 1999. My mom is now 82 and resides near St. Petersburg, in a town called Dunedin, with my brother and sister, who wisely didnÂt go to the movies during the biggest world crisis of the past 60 years.

My great-great-grandmother used to tell of the time the Indian chief came to see her father, urging him to hide his family, for that night there was going to be a raid. She hid up under a footbridge, holding onto her little sister, listening to the hor sesÂ hooves crossing above. Their homestead was just south of the Charlotte County line, out by Hammock Pond. My great grandmother would steer her skiff to Thomas EdisonÂs dock, where the two would sit and fish and swap stories. Her daddy ran the ferry between Fort Myers and North Fort Myers before there was a bridge. She ran Crescent Fish Market, a market she opened with her husband in 1924. My mama believes this was the first fish market downtown. And every Thursday, thatÂs where Thomas Edison sent his attendant to buy his fish. My grandmotherÂs daddy was a mullet man. She remembers riding out to Pine Island, watching him glide his skiff without leaving a ripple, fishing back in the days of gill nets. Riding out there with her now, whenever you cross the bridge at Matlacha Pass, she always looks down and says, ÂThatÂs where I got my freckles on my shoulders.ÂŽ My grandmother was born in the old Lee Memorial Hospital, across the street from where the hospital stands now. Soon as she was big enough, she was feeding chickens. Her brother milked the cow. Every Saturday, the family would go into town to buy groceries and see a movie at the Edison Theatre. Once or twice they went to the Ritz, a movie house in the Patio de Leon with an alligator pit out front so city folk could see a real gator. My mama was chased by water moccasins twice. She grew up living down the same dirt road, swimming in the same creek as her mama. ÂSeems we always lived out in the woods somewhere and my friends all lived in lovely little neighborhoods,ÂŽ Mama says. ÂI could not understand why we had to live so far away. Now I wish we could go live in the woods again, but all the woods have been cleared into neighborhoods.ÂŽ My mama remembers eating from her grandmaÂs grove of guava trees. She remembers climbing her grandmaÂs mulberry tree. She says thatÂs where she ran when she ran away from home Â„ ÂgrandmaÂs mulberry tree.ÂŽ My mama remembers when trips to the beach took a long time not because of the traffic, but because of the anticipation. She remembers celebrating all the February birthdays down at the Edison Festival of Light parade. ThatÂs when her memories start to meld into mine. I remember growing up down the same dirt road as my mama. I remember me and my cousins spray-painting our initials on the shells of gopher turtles, so when we saw them later, we knew who saw them first. (Forgive me, turtles). I remember picking sweet peas and green beans with my grandmother. I remember rolling out sheets of Visqueen, drenching them in dish soap, turning them into slip Ân slides out by the pond on the farm. My little sister bruised her tailbone because of such escapades. I remember my mama and my grandmother running us to Silver Springs to see the glass bottom boats, to Weeki Wachee to see the mermaids dance under-water with their air hoses, to Cypress Gardens to see the girls done up like Southern belles, like they were trying to outrun time to show us our home. But what I remember most would be going to Fort Myers Beach, my sister chasing birds, my mama making sandwiches and me digging my toes in the sand playing with coquina shells, Âtil I got shoulder freckles of my own.

Max Planck grants will fund research into ParkinsonÂ’s, epilepsy SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, Jupiter, has received more than $1.2 million in recent grant funding from four prestigious national and international organizations. The institute, which opened its 100,000-square-foot research facility in December 2012, focuses solely on basic neuroscience research that aims to ana-lyze, map, and decode the human brain. ÂThe Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience continues its mission to provide a new and more detailed understanding of the structure, develop-ment and functional organization of the nervous system,ÂŽ said Scientific Direc-tor and CEO Dr. David Fitzpatrick in a prepared statement. ÂThese grants and the research they will support will pave the way for new insights, hopefully leading to advances in treatments and cures for brain disorders ranging from Parkinson Âs to epilepsy.ÂŽ The grant awards included the following: Q Dr. Hiroki Taniguchi, a research group leader, was awarded $100,000 by Citizens United for Research and Epilepsy for his efforts to study cel-lular structures seeking to identify pathways for treatments and hope-fully a cure for epilepsy. Dr. Tanigu-chi was also awarded $488,000 over three years by the Japan Science & Technology Agency to develop cutting-edge methods to track fine details in local circuits of inhibi-tory neurons that are thought to be linked to epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia. His related work was published in the January 2013 issue of Science Magazine. Q Dr. Sam Young, a research group leader, received two separate awards, totaling nearly $147,000 from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for ParkinsonÂs Research for his work to develop better models for the study of ParkinsonÂs disease. The first grant will be used for a collab-orative research program with the University of Florida. Q The National Eye Institute awarded the Institute $522,500 to fund a two-year research project to develop the next generation of molecular tools to probe the structure, function and development of neurons in the living brain. The work represents a col-laboration between Dr. Young and Dr. Fitzpatrick, with the goal of cre-ating new therapeutic tools to treat neurological disorders. The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience is the first American institute established by GermanyÂs pres-tigious Max Planck Society. It brings together top research neuroscientists from around the world to collaborate on unlocking the mysteries of the brain by providing new insight into the function-al organization of the nervous system, and its capacity to produce perception, thought, language, memory, emotion, and action. The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience meets this challenge by forging links between dif-ferent levels of analysis Â… genetic, molec-ular, cellular, circuit, and behavioral Â… and developing new technologies that make cutting edge scientific discoveries possible. The results of the research will be shared publicly with scholars, uni-versities and other institutions around the globe to advance life-saving and life-improving treatments and cures for brain disorders ranging from autism, to ParkinsonÂs to AlzheimerÂs.

The hospitalÂs Maternity Services and Special Deliveries program now offers the option of renting special birthing tubs filled with soothing water that could help reduce stress hormones and pain in labor, the medical center said in a prepared state-ment. Birthing tubs can be used in both labor and delivery. The solace of water births can also produce feelings of a warm bath.ÂTodayÂs woman has a number of choices when it comes to giving birth. WeÂre delighted to offer another healthy option with the introduction of water births in our hos-pital,ÂŽ said Mark Nosacka, chief executive officer of Good Samaritan Medical Center, in the statement. ÂOur goal is to provide special-ized birthing plans to accommodate every motherÂs needs, and we are pleased to add water births to our labor and delivery options.ÂŽThe buoyancy experienced during laboring in the water helps to lessen muscle tension and pro-mote relaxation during labor, making breathing easier. That optimal oxy-genation created is healthy for both mother and baby. Laboring in a water setting may also relax pelvic floor tissue and decrease the need for an episiotomy, less maternal blood loss and fewer pain medications, the statement said. Some women find that relative weightlessness associated with water buoyancy can help with mus-cle support, repositioning and comfort. Each woman should design and discuss her specific birth plan with a phy-sician or certified nurse midwife. In addition to water birthing, Maternity Services and Special Deliveries at Good Samaritan Medical Center offer private patient suites, a Level II NICU, Child-birth Education Program and special-ized birth plans. To learn more about the birthing options at Good Samaritan Medical Center call 650-6023. Q Grout A12 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY

That one line would have triggered the system to offer web browsers other than MicrosoftÂ’s own Internet Explorer, which Microsoft had agreed to include to settle charges that it was monopolizing the web-browser business. (Also in March, the government of Denmark said that Microsoft owed it about a billion dollars in unpaid taxes when it took over a Danish company and tried to route its taxes through notorious tax havens such as Bermuda. According to a March Reuters report, Denmark is among the first European countries to challenge such U.S.-standard tax shenanigans and is expecting payment in full.) Q Recurring themes Q Being identified with the number 666 (the Â“mark of the beastÂ” in the BibleÂ’s Book of Revelation) continues to trou-ble the righteous. Walter Slonopas, 52, felt required to resign as a maintenance worker for Contech Casting in Clarks-ville, Tenn., in February after receiving his W-2 form, which he noted was the 666th mailed out by Contech this year. (However, perhaps Mr. Slonopas is not so innocent. He had been working for Contech for less than two years, yet had already been Â“assignedÂ” the number 666 twice Â— on the companyÂ’s payroll books and the companyÂ’s time-clock system.) Q In February, victims of crimes in San Antonio, Texas, and Terrebonne Par-ish, La., complained to police that they had been assaulted by, respectively, a Â“Hispanic maleÂ” and an Â“unknown black manÂ” Â— whom the victims admitted later did not exist. San Antonio police learned that their victim had been accidentally, embarrassingly, shot by a friend mis-handling his gun. Louisiana authorities found that their victim had not been abducted and raped (and had her baby stolen). Rather, she had wanted to hide her miscarriage from family and friends and invented a phantom attack as more acceptable. Q Chinese New Year, especially, turns out not so festive if busy young profes-sional women are unable to show off a boyfriend to their parents. Thus, men offer themselves as fake boyfriends for the equivalent of about $50 a day, plus extras including about $5 an hour to accompany the woman to dinner, $8 for a kiss on the cheek, and $95 to spent the night Â— on the couch, of course, since Â“sexÂ” is not part of the concept. Recently, a reality TV series appeared for men needing women for home visits Â— often they are gay men who have not Â“come outÂ” to their parents. Q Society continues to suffer from questionable company policies that encourage precisely the wrong behaviors. Bartender Twyla DeVito said she knew that one of her regulars at the American Legion Post in Shelby, Ohio, was too inebriated to drive home and thus tele-phoned police, alerting them to a poten-tial drunk driver. An officer responded, observed the driver, and arrested him when his blood-alcohol read twice the limit for presumed impairment. Two days later Ms. DeVito was fired because, as her boss allegedly said to her, Â“(I)tÂ’s bad for business to have a bartender that will call the cops.Â” Q Heather Frost, 36, and mother of 11, is getting a brand-new, specially designed house through the Tewkesbury (Eng-land) Borough Council, which deemed inadequate the duplex that the family had been using at taxpayer expense for five years. Ms. Frost had complained that she needed larger quarters because one daughter now owns a horse and needs to stable it (and, said a stable worker, had almost acquired two more horses, but that deal fell through). Q Fathers caught up unfairly in state laws on child support have appeared in News of the Weird, but Lional CampbellÂ’s story seems unusually harsh. Authorities in Detroit continue to bill Mr. Campbell for past-due support (which Mr. Camp-bell admits he owes even if unsure how much), but only recently did he discover that they were counting $43,000 past-due to support Â“Michael,Â” who had died 25 years ago at age 3. Mr. Campbell said he had thought the support was for another child, born seven years after Michael, but it turns out neither the authorities nor Mr. Campbell knows precisely which fatherhood Mr. Campbell is paying for. The latest audit reduced MichaelÂ’s $43,000 balance to about $6,500. Q In Tiringoulou (pop. 2,000) in the Central African Republic, phantoms are thought often to steal penises, or shrink them, but according to a March dispatch in the magazine Pacific Standard, the sto-riesÂ’ origins may simply reflect distrust of outsiders. Townspeople over-attribute worldly powers to strangers, and when outsidersÂ’ business deals go sour, men check their genitals. Also, animal-organ poachers operate nearby and arouse sus-picion that they may be after human genitals, as well. (Asking for perspective on this weirdness, though, the Pacific Standard reporter wondered what Tirin-goulou citizens might think about Ameri-cans who, for instance, starve themselves Â“near to death because their reflection in the mirror convinces them that they are fat.Â”) Q Poor planning Q In San Diego, Calif., in February, two people broke into a Hooters after closing and stole a jukebox, apparently, said police, mistaking it for an ATM inside the darkened restaurant. Q Jose Perales Jr., 24, was charged with breaking into Dr. JohnÂ’s Lingerie Boutique in Davenport, Iowa, in Feb-ruary. Surveillance video revealed he was wearing menÂ’s clothing when he entered, but left in a dress and blond wig. In fact, while changing clothes, his bare back was visible, revealing Â“PeralesÂ” tattooed on his shoulder. Q Loretta Lacy, 49, perhaps set some kind of record in January as she sped from Sioux Falls, S.D., to Racine, Wis. (about 500 miles away) just to make her granddaughterÂ’s school dance. Although her daughter told a Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter that her mother Â“can make it from A to B faster than maybe the average person,Â” Lacy collected four speeding tickets during one 2 hour stretch, including for speeds of 88, 99 and 112. Of course, she arrived late. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERD DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day, so I thought he was upset that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasnÂt flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didnÂt say much. I asked him what was wrong. He said, ÂNothing.ÂŽ I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasnÂt upset, that it had nothing to do with me and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly and kept driving. I canÂt explain his behavior. I donÂt know why he didnÂt say, ÂI love you, too.ÂŽ When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I donÂt know what to do. IÂm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster. Husbands Diary: A two-foot putt Âƒ Who the hell misses a two-foot putt?In recent weeks, the above email has been circulating throughout inboxes in South Florida. While many just quickly read this entry as another funny story designed to elicit knowing chuckles from those in committed relationships, we can actually glean an important les-son if we consider the message. The scenario above highlights how a simple misunderstanding can unwit-tingly spiral out of control and compli-cate our closest relationships. When we try to interpret and ascribe mean-ing to the emotional states or actions of those around us, we often jump to erroneous conclusions when there is no factual basis for doing so. In fact, in some instances, we react so intensely we set in motion an escalating cre-scendo of hurt and accusations, without a real understanding of our reason for doing so. Sadly, we not only undermine the relationship, we cause unnecessary heartache and worry for ourselves. Each of us looks at the world through a lens that has been shaped by a com-plex mix of family history, genetics, past relationships and an accumulation of our successes and failures. Our brains are wired to store a lifetime of experi-ences and to process this data to our advantage. While our brain does its best to use our past experiences to make sense of our current environment, the stored messages undoubtedly influence our reactions to those around us and may even fuel an emotionally charged response to a harmless situation. Dr. Alex Korb, a neuroscience researcher at UCLA, has extensively studied how our brains function and provides a scientific basis for under-standing why we may react so intensely, and how we may unintentionally get ourselves into trouble. Dr. Korb describes how the brain gets the gist of whatÂs going on but makes up the rest. ÂTo avoid the hard work of pro-cessing every detail about the world, the brain just captures a few key ones and fills in a whole perception. That filled in perception is what you actually experi-ence, and itÂs based largely on your past experiences. Therefore its easier on the brain to just jump to that conclusion.ÂŽ ÂMuch of the time this brain function works to our advantage. For example, this feature of the brain brilliantly facili-tates our ability to read and compre-hend.ÂŽ He describes how the Âbrain doesnÂt actually read words one letter at a time. It just glances at them, gets an idea of what letters are there and makes an educated guess on what the word is Â„ wihch is why itÂs not taht hrad to raed smcralbed wrods. That is also why itÂs so hard to find typos, becu-sae your brain naturally wants to fill in the incorrectly spelled word with what it thinks should be there.ÂŽ ÂWhatÂs so powerful about the brain is that the assumptions it creates are almost always spot on. However, jump-ing to conclusions can get you in to trou-ble when the assumptions are wrong. The problem is exacerbated by the fact the assumptions are usually automatic and unconscious. On top of that we think we are fully aware of everything, but it is just a trick. We are unaware of what we are unaware of. With misreading a word, or misidentifying a person itÂs a fairly straightforward task to go back and see where you made a mistake. But most of our assumptions are not so obvi-ous nor so easily verified.ÂŽ The human brain has a highly evolved warning center designed to alert us to potential dangers in our environment. Paradoxically, this warning system, designed to help us navigate perilous situations, may actually prime us for dangers that donÂt exist. We may react defensively and initiate conflict, when, in fact, there is no basis to be uneasy. ItÂs not uncommon to project attributes from important people who influ-enced our earliest experiences to our romantic partners or close friends. When we overlay these personality qualities that may or may not be appropriate, we may make troubling assumptions about a personÂs character and behavior. We may then inadvertently saddle our cur-rent relationships with inaccurate and troubling conclusions. Some of us are in close relationships where we get the sense we know our partners so well that we can size up what theyÂre thinking and even finish their sentences for them. We can often read a close personÂs face and demeanor, and believe we know EXACTLY what theyÂre thinking. After all, theyÂve let their feelings be known over and over, so we believe thereÂs little doubt as to how they will react. While this is often the case, our lens of past experiences often influences us to make judgments that can be woefully wrong. When we make an effort to step away from an emotional situation, challenging our assessments with healthy skepti-cism, we can catch ourselves before reacting prematurely. Pausing to reflect can often give us the perspective to consider the options more clearly. It also helps to ask our-selves some important questions to counteract the influence of ingrained biases. In other words, we might ask ourselves: ÂIs there a plausible explana-tion for why the other person is acting this way?ÂŽ ÂHave I gathered all of the relevant facts?ÂŽ ÂIs it reasonable to get upset?ÂŽ ÂWould I be upset if another person did the same thing?ÂŽ With practice, even in todayÂs fast moving world, we can overcome the automatic wiring of our brains to become more objective in our thinking. Giving our loved ones the benefit of the doubt often helps us to be more objective and to open up meaningful dialogs. We can become more thoughtful and measured in our responses. We can train ourselves to remember that our first impressions are not always right. Q Â„ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

It is a rather bold statement, given the last three years have been a particularly tumul-tuous time for nonprofits struggling to adapt to the new realities of an anemic economy. The path forward to sustainability has grown difficult and hazardous. Being passionate and committed to your cause, dedicated to your mission and accountable to your donors and constituents are virtues that inspire trust and confidence. But few non-profits enjoy the long-term financial horizon that insures the sustainabil-ity that delivers on the promise of Âfor good, forever.ÂŽ Nonprofits rely in majority on a steady drip-drip of cash transfusions from loyal donors to pay their bills. But individual contributions are only one among multiple sources required to make the math work. Past assump-tions regarding operational support are a casualty of a new economic reality. The aftermath of financial challenges are problematic for the charitable sector overall. So why be optimistic we are on a path forward Â„ if not toward a financial recovery for nonprofits that resurrects the old status quo? One reason is that many in the charitable sector have looked deep into the abyss of declining resources and vis-cerally understand the changes we are seeing are permanent and not just temporary. Innovation has been set free, this despite the strong under-tow of conventional wisdom to keep doing the same thing Â„ but now, just more of it. Organizational alliances are growing, collaborations are tak-ing root, and the value of leveraging is keenly appreciated. But a more consequential transformation is also at work. Leadership and generational change are being increasingly spo-ken of in one and the same breath within the sector. The demographics of change are at work everywhere. The life cycle of all organizations and businesses include transition in leadership, beginning within the boardroom and on down the hallway, through the CEOÂs office, and on to staffing. A vacant seat inspires many possibilities but the opportunity to reach more deeply into the younger talent pool is not always a no-brainer. This issue is attracting more thought these days because genera-tional change is gathering steam. Ser-endipity is a blind date. Leadership and mentoring programs within the charitable sector are well established and explicit about providing access and a path to leadership for the next generation of emerging leaders. These programs prepare young pro-fessionals for when the time comes to replace those that move on. Succession of leadership has otherwise tended to be an exercise in clon-ing; stereotypes often begat stereo-types, given how narr owly leader ship was defined at the source of author-ity. It was rarely an accident when every professional who showed up for a conference sounded and looked alike. We can do better and have. Old presumptions about who is qualified to lead are being called out and challenged, as they should be. Developing the next generation of philanthropists and nonprofit lead-ers is a mighty second wind. We are looking down the barrel of advanc-ing seniority in many key positions. Growing a strong pool of future can-didates has become an ever more important preoccupation of the char-itable sector for the charitable sector. This next generation of leaders will transform the sector and our world. Be also optimistic because of the vast, generational transfer of wealth that is underway in this country. Even by the most conservative numbers, the amount of assets changing hands in the next 40 years is in the mega trillions. Of course, there is a big ÂifÂŽ associated with that moment of transition. Are the seeds being planted now that will inspire even a modest portion of those dollars to be dedicated in the future to charitable causes? The short answer is Ânot by accident.ÂŽ We have the tools, the incentives, and the menu of charitable options necessary to attract deferred gifts from caring supporters. And this is opportunity times two: we can grow the supply side of philanthropy and the total investment made directly into charitable organizations. If you believe that timing is everything and the timing is now, then the chances are strong that where optimism lives, abundance will follow.

Investor behavior trumps all other reasons for a poor return in a portfolio. Sub-par investor behavior is common and costly. What derails people when investing? Uncontrolled emotions (predominantly fear and greed); denial (often when an investment is in a loss position); and a lack of commitment to portfolio disciplines (rules for allocation, exits including stop losses and selection of managers.) Healthy emotions, a basis in reality, and commit-ment are nothing new under the sun; their absence ends careers, personal relation-ships, higher education opportunities, etc. And, so too, with investing. One unhealthy behavior, which is typical in the investment process, is Âchasing performance.ÂŽ An analogy follows. A high school-aged, testosteronecharged male chases a pretty girl dressed in a short skirt, who he knows not except for her recent swagger past him. He negates his well-laid plans/promises to the girl next door; instead he asks the new-found ÂhottieÂŽ to the high school dance. At the dance, out of the corner of his eye, he fixates on a new short skirt, a new Âillu-sion of his delusion.ÂŽ How successful is this leap frogging from one to the next? Not very. We all know the end result: failure to develop a relationship of value i.e., no friendship, fulfillment, companionship, personal development, etc. So too with investors. They chase hot performance, choosing investments based on recent results, believing that an asset with outstanding recent returns will con-tinue to do well. In their vein of logic, they are merely or dutifully reallocating funds to higher-performing investments and out of lesser-performing investments. Unfortunately, chasing Âinvestment hottiesÂŽ actually causes much harm. ÂA study by the consulting firm DALBAR examined the effect of chasing returns between 1984 and 2003. Investors in stock mutual funds who frequently traded out of funds during that period earned an aver-age annual return of 3.51 percent. In con-trast, the market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, earned a 12.98 percent average annual return.ÂŽ (Website BMO Retirement Services.) How ironic: The typical inves-tor thinks that he will get better results by moving from hot to hotter to hottest yet the end results were approximately 75 percent less than an index. Ouch! Are retail investors the only ones who do this? Not at all. Retirement plan spon-sors do it as well, so say three extremely well noted investment experts (Edwin J. Elton, Martin J. Gruber and Christopher R. Blake) in the January 2013 research paper ÂHow do employer sÂ 401-K mutual fund selections affect performance?ÂŽ The authors conclude, ÂWhen making changes to a planÂs funds, administrators chase returns and do not end up improv-ing investment performance. Like their employers, 401(k) plan participants also tend to chase returns, transferring assets into higher-performing funds rather than rebalancing to restore their original asset allocations.ÂŽ (www.Fiduciary News.com, March 5, 2013.) The Fiduciary News column also included a worthy quote by David Ott of Acropolis Investment Management, which articulates why the problem occurs even at the trustee level. ÂPlan sponsors chase performance because thatÂs how the advisers often construct their value proposition Â„ selecting funds, moni-toring them and making changes when necessary. Usually past performance is a meaningful part of the selection criteria and probably the most important part of the monitoring process. When a fund underperforms Â„ even if itÂs just for a few quarters, the trustees feel as though they must make a change to fulfill their fiduciary duty. That means they sell the recent underperformer and likely buy the recent outperformer. Several studies have shown that this is a mistake since funds tend to regress to the mean, the old fund comes back and the new fund falls down, compounding the original problem.ÂŽ Why does chasing a good performer often turn out to be bad investing? It all depends upon when you buy into the trend; investors/trustees can be too late in finding and taking advantage of the trend. They might well be buying star perform-ers near their top price. It also depends on how you plan to get out if the price trend fails; investors often have no rule sets for limiting losses. You might be wondering: if chasing performance does not work, then why is Âtrend followingÂŽ such a widely accepted and successful trading strategy? Why are hundreds of books written explaining its value and billions of investment dollars managed under the premise that the trend is your friend? The answer lies in the speed and accuracy in recognizing a price trend; execut-ing entry of a position; and the strict adherence to a rule set to exit if you are losing money if the trend fails. Funda-mental thinking is not employed since rule sets (written in algorithms) gener-ate signals for entry and exit. The ÂalgoÂŽ system is not hampered by human judg-ment, human emotion, human intuition and human group-think. As they acknowl-edge that the human inclination is to deny a loss (and expect it to come back), they set the loss parameters/enter the stop losses at time of entry. Trend followers accept losses as part of the investment process. There is no element of chasing performance.What is the investor to do? First, understand and recognize that chasing is a natu-ral but proven unfruitful behavior. Second, develop a strategy and a plan to execute that strategy; and, importantly, find a way to remain committed to its execution. ÂBuy a diversified portfolio of investments that reflects your plan. Âƒ (and) hold the investments unless there are legitimate reasons to make changes.ÂŽ (BMO Retire-ment website.) And chasing short skirts is not a legitimate reason!

The earliest were crude carved pieces of wood shaped like a human figure. But today itÂs rare to find a doll made before the 1600s, when English and Ger-man draftsmen skillfully carved wooden lifelike dolls. Most collectors today look for later carved Âpeg woodenÂŽ dolls like those made in Grodnertal, Germany. The dolls, which date fr om about 1820 to 1840, were created with arms and legs that could bend because of their pegged joints at the knees and hips, elbows and shoulders. The early ones have heart-shaped faces, long necks and elongated bodies. Their extra-long legs showed off their high-waisted Empire-style dresses. After the 1840s, doll carvers took short-cuts and the dolls had round faces and chunky bodies. A 2012 TheriaultÂs auction offered a Grodnertal peddler doll. The 13-inch doll had her original painted face, human hair wig and jointed arms and legs. Her value increased because she wore her original clothes, from dress to cap, cape and undergarments. She was holding a peddlerÂs tray filled with lace, sew-ing materials, household goods and a tiny miniature Grodnertal wooden doll. Because she was old, attractive and in good original condition, a collector paid more than $2,900 to take her home. Q: I have a pasteboard dollhouse designed and made by Transogram Co. of New York. ItÂs in reasonable shape. I think itÂs from the 1920s or Â30s. ItÂs a two-story house with a front that opens up and a removable roof. The lower level is red brick and the second floor has yellow siding. The furniture inside is wooden and is definitely Â20s and Â30s vintage. Does the furnished dollhouse have any value, or should I just pitch it? A: DonÂt pitch it. Transogram Co. was founded by Charles S. Raizen in 1915. It made toys, play sets, games, craft sets and juvenile and playroom furniture. Raizen died in 1967, and the com-pany was run by his family until it was sold in 1969. It closed shortly afterward. Old dollhouses, even card-board houses, sell to col-lectors. A little wear is OK. Q: I have a dining-room chair thatÂs blond wood with a green plastic seat. It has a lattice-like back. The back legs are one piece going from the floor to the top of the back. The bottom is marked ÂDaystrom Furniture, Model 455-175.ÂŽ The words ÂMade in Occupied JapanÂŽ are written in a small circle. ItÂs not in perfect shape. Can you tell me what itÂs worth? A: Daystrom was founded in Olean, N.Y., in 1934. At first the company made metal ashtrays. By 1938 it was producing chro-mium kitchen furniture and upholstered stools and chairs. Daystrom moved to South Boston in 1962 and began using the name ÂDaystrom Fur-niture.ÂŽ DaystromÂs low-end dinette sets sold well during the 1960s, but for-eign competition began affecting the furniture market by the 1970s. The company was sold sev-eral times and closed in 1996. Since your chair is marked ÂMade in Occu-pied Japan,ÂŽ Daystrom must have been making furniture in a Japanese factory or importing piec-es between 19 47 and 1952, years when the Allies occupied Japan after World War II. Chairs like yours were inexpensive when made. Value today: about $100 to $150. Q: I have a complete collection of small metal license plates. TheyÂre all about 3 by 5 inches. I think they came from Wheaties cereal boxes. They are about 60 years old. Can you tell me if there is a demand for these and if they have any value? A: Wheaties first offered miniature auto license plates from all 48 states and the District of Columbia in 1953. Four different sets of 12 plates each could be ordered by sending in 25 cents and a Wheaties box top. The District of Columbia plate was available in random boxes of Wheaties. It was a very success-ful promotion and increased Wheaties sales. Many boys and girls sent for the license plates and attached them to their bicycles. Post Cereals issued plate sets in 1968 and 1982. Single plates sell for about $5 today. A set of 49 plates issued in 1953-54, with original mailers, sold several years ago for more than $600. Tip: To remove a sticky price label from a piece of silver, heat it with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive, then peel off the label. If there is sticky glue left, remove it with isopropyl alcohol.

The office mailed 68,819 reminder notices to property owners who had outstanding 2012 taxes as of March 10. This represents just less than 1 percent of the 704,386 property owners who were sent tax bills in November 2012, Ms. Gannon said in a prepared statement. ÂRevenue from collections goes to the county and local taxing districts,ÂŽ Ms. Gannon said. ÂThese taxes pay for critical services we all rely on includ-ing law enforcement, fire and rescue, education, and health care services.ÂŽ Property taxes for 2012 can be paid online at www.taxcollectorpbc.com, at service center locations, or via mail. Wire transfers are also accepted. There is no discount on taxes paid in March. All unpaid taxes after April 1 accrue 3 percent interest. Florida Statutes require unpaid properties to be subject to Tax Certificate sale once taxes are 60 day delinquent. Tax War-rants are issued on all unpaid personal property taxes. Personal property may be seized and sold to pay the delinquent taxes. For additional information see www.taxcollectorpbc.com. Q New construction, or existing homes Â— the market is hotOver the past month, I have had three buyers from the Northeast come to visit the area looking for a second home. Prior to an y clientÂs visit, I always send a detailed list of available homes and then plan accordingly based on their criteria. This season, there has been a trend in the type of home that buyers are looking for and they are beginning to want new con-struction again. The past four years have offered a very limited amount of new construction inventory. As the real estate market in our area declined, most developers and builders stopped building spec homes and model homes simply because the market was not conducive to this type of sale. Inventory was so heavy in existing real estate that new construction could not compete with pricing. Most buyers either purchased a home that was nearly new or turned to renovations on the existing home they purchased. Now, we are seeing a significant change in the new home market. Gary Purucker, a prominent custom builder in the area, has seen at least a 25 percent increase in his activity since last year. Mr. PuruckerÂs market is the luxury custom home mar-ket with a new home average sales price of $2,500,000. Although there is still a very healthy amount of remodeling being done, Mr. Purucker attributes the change to the overall rising existing home prices as well as the low inventory. The interest in new homes is also becoming popular since the newer devel-opments are showing construction starts up by approximately 30 percent overall. Just driving through the area, you will see new construction in many communities. Furnished model homes and spec homes are available for sale in Old Palm Golf Club and Old Marsh Golf Club to name a few in the luxury market. There are also new models available by developers such as Toll Brothers, D.R. Horton, Pulte and K. Hovnanian. My client last week only wanted to look at new homes. When they arrived in Florida, we toured new homes ranging from $1,500,000 to $4,000,000. The value represented with the quality finishes at this level is very appealing. Completely turnkey and all of the homes come with some type of warranty in addition to sev-eral manufacturersÂ warranties. As we viewed the homes, each one seemed more appealing than the next to my client. The new finishes and color schemes were fresh to the eye and the design of the homes seemed to be much more streamlined then former new homes that were on the market just a few years ago. Several great-room designs are being offered now with large gathering spaces for families and friends to enjoy the company of one another. In addition, the locations of these homes were also appealing: golf course, lakefront, preserve or specialty views. After viewing about 10 new homes, furnished and unfurnished, my client decid-ed on the neighborhood where he wanted to live. After narrowing that down, the available new homes in that particular neighborhood did not fit his needs, so we then looked at the existing inventory. Because the inventory has significantly declined, there are not as many choices, but most of the existing inventory is priced right and had been well main-tained. My client ultimately chose a home that was built in 2000 and needs very little updating. His decision was based on the neighborhood, location and the size/design of the home. Based on this experience and many like it, if you are looking for a new home, be open to everything that is available. This client was very specific that he only wanted a new home and was very clear that he would not look at anything else, but in the end found a beautiful existing home and was able to purchase it with the furnishings. Overall, it is still more posi-tive signs for the market with exceptional opportunities in the new home and exist-ing home available in our area!

In the photographs for his shows, he is suave, dressed in evening attire, every hair in place. He is handsome in tails, but even without the tux and without the hair gel, singer Franco Corso cuts an impressive figure. He arrives for an interview at a Palm Beach Gardens Starbucks looking like a character from some romance novel, the wind whipping his long hair. His body is taut and lean in the shorts and T-shirt he has donned for a gym visit after the inter-view. He exudes confidence, and is eager to talk about his next big show, a concert of Italian ballads and more on April 6 at S tuartÂs Lyric Theatre. ÂIÂve been inspired by classic singers like Sergio Franchi and Caruso and then I developed an ability to sing old clas-sic songs with a modern arrangement,ÂŽ Mr. Corso says of his music, which also draws inspiration from the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Il Divo. He comes by it naturally, this Voice of Romance. Mr. CorsoÂs hometown is San Remo, the northern Italian city that is famous for its Festival of Italian Song.

ÂHere,ÂŽ she said when I saw her, handing me the pile of crumbling publi-cations. ÂIÂm sure youÂll find something interesting in these.ÂŽ Delighted, I took the assorted Vogues and Cosmopolitans home. I love old magazines, the way they offer a peek into another era. Like a time capsule, the yellowed pages show how men and women once lived Â„ their habits, their values. They provide a true sense for the way things were. Paging through a Cosmopolitan from May 1940, I wasnÂt disappointed. The magazine had all the old advertise-ments that make me giggle Â„ folksy constipation remedies and miracle liver pills Â„ plus the ubiquitous ads for ciga-rettes and booze. One daunting ad had this headline: ÂShe was a jewel of a wife with just one flaw. She was guilty of the one neglect that mars many marriages. Lysol helps avoid this.ÂŽ Lysol? I scanned the rest of the ad until I found the product: Lysol Disinfectant for Feminine Hygiene. ÂHot damn,ÂŽ I said out loud. Talk about another era. Reading on, I found a morality tale about a young suburban wife who takes a cruise after she discovers her hus-band having an affair. On ship she meets a handsome, recently divorced man with whom she platonically enjoys sunsets and highballs. But once back home, not surprisingly, she reconciles with her husband. ÂIt was an idyl Â„ an enchantment,ÂŽ she says of her high seas love affair as she contentedly settles back into domestic life. I couldnÂt help but roll my eyes at all that 1940s parochialism. What a shock, then, to read the next article, which asked: ÂDoes modern marriage fail because husbands donÂt know what they want Â„ or because wives donÂt give them what they need?ÂŽ What followed was a fictional account of a marriage on the verge of collapse. ÂWhat came between two peo-ple who loved each other?ÂŽ the wife asks. ÂShe had given herself to making JohnÂs home. She never thought of herself at all any more. Whatever she had was poured into him and the children, and if it were not enough for him, she couldnÂt help it. She had no more.ÂŽ ÂOld stuff!ÂŽ her husband shouts as they quarrel. ÂWomen have been say-ing the same old things to men for a thousand years.ÂŽ I paused in my reading, floored. Was this possible, a womenÂs magazine tak-ing a feminist stance a full two decades before ÂThe Feminine MystiqueÂŽ? The story continues. At an afternoon matinee, the wife suddenly realizes her husband is in love with a female colleague. ÂWhen the curtain went down for the last time, she rose, full of defi-ance, and looked about her (at the other housewives). Sheep! she thought. TheyÂre all sheep!ÂŽ I marveled at the progressiveness and couldnÂt wait to read the end of the story, to see how this newly liberated woman would set herself free. What a disappointment when, instead of strik-ing out on her own, she rededicates herself to her husband. ÂHe shall have no other woman but me!ÂŽ she says. So much for progress.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYpassion for bringing Italian music to the United States,ÂŽ he says. But most of the singers to whom he was drawn are tenors. ÂMy voice is between a baritone and tenor, so I really can sing very low and reach the high notes at the same time,ÂŽ he says. That voice is evenly produced from top to bottom, and it seemingly attracts legions of fans. Mr. Corso, who lives in Juno Beach, regularly sells out con-certs at the Palm Beach State College Âs Eissey Campus Theatre, and has a fan base at CarmineÂs, where has been fea-tured performer for several years. And those fans?ÂThey are mainly women, and it touches from 35 years old up to 90 years old. ThatÂs the beauty of pop opera music, because it attracts all age groups,ÂŽ he says. Ladies, youÂre in luck: He is single, and knows a thing or two about the power of the music. ÂIÂve always been embraced by the passion this music can deliver to the audience Â„passion and romance. Even for people who donÂt speak Italian, (the songs) have the power to bring love and passion and positive energy into peopleÂs hearts,ÂŽ he says. He has sung such pieces as ÂCaruso,ÂŽ ÂBesame Mucho,ÂŽ ÂYou Raise Me Up,ÂŽ ÂO Sole MioÂŽ and ÂVolare,ÂŽ and also has planned to introduce some new music written expressly for him, including a song will remind listeners of the music of Santana. Mr. Corso says he is comfortable moving from genre to genre and lan-guage to language Â„ he speaks four languages. But music is a universal language, and a healing one at that. ÂI want to share with you something that really touched my heart. Three days ago, a lady who has been a very good friend to me for these past few years, she has been diagnosed with cancer and suddenly she tells to that she has only two weeks to live,ÂŽ he says. ÂI said to her I want to come to your house and do a private concert for you. I really think that music will make you feel better, even if itÂs only for an hour or two.ÂŽ He called his pianist and they arrived at her home. ÂFive minutes before I came, she was lying in bed dying; she had decided to give up. As soon as I started singing, she got up from bed, with the help of the nurse, and her face lit up complete-ly,ÂŽ he says. The woman sat up in a chair and The Voice of Romance continued ser-enading her. ÂToward the end she got up from the chair and she started dancing, and to me, thatÂs the gift of the music.ÂŽ Q >>What: Franco Corso Â— A Tribute to Andrea Bocelli and Friends>>When: 8 p.m. April 6 >>Where: Lyric Theatre, 59 SW Flagler Ave., Stuart>>Cost: $35 >>Info: (772) 286-7827, lyrictheatre.com or francocorso.com in the know CORSOFrom page 1 Â“KINGÂ”From page 1There definitely are no marching bands in IonescoÂs work. In ÂExit the King,ÂŽ a meditation on mortality, 400-year-old King Berenger, an incompetent monarch, learns he has only 90 minutes to live. YouÂd think heÂd be ready to cash out, but the sentimental old ruler will not give up the kingdom he has brought to ruin or come to terms with his immi-nent death. The play, written in 1962, was third of the four plays Ionesco wrote between 1958 and 1963 that comprise his ÂBerenger Cycle.ÂŽ ÂExit the KingÂŽ was preceded by ÂThe KillerÂŽ and ÂRhinoceros,ÂŽ and followed by ÂA Stroll in the Air.ÂŽ Ionesco died in 1994. Producing Artistic Director William Hayes will direct the production. Colin McPhillamy stars as the inept mon-arch, and Jim Ballard, Claire Brownell, Rob Donohoe and Angie Radosh round out the cast. And then there is Juliette.ÂShe is a little bit sassy sometimes. She has a love of the king and a loyalty to him, but they all want to ease him to his death. HeÂs fighting the whole way. He doesnÂt want to go, like every other man on Earth, he doesnÂt want to die,ÂŽ she said. But as the maid, Ms. Dimon is not onstage the entire 90 minutes of the production. ÂItÂs very active. I come in and out, and thatÂs probably the most absurd part. I disappear then IÂm in again. And you go OK, whatÂs the purpose of that, you try to find that for yourself, but sometimes itÂs just because youÂre just told to,ÂŽ she said. Juliette breaks down the Fourth Wall, that invisible line between actors and play, with her asides to the audi-ence Â„ some productions of the show even count down the minutes until BerengerÂs death. ItÂs the end of the world, at least for the king. ÂThe idea is that his life and his monarchy and his world is ending, that doesnÂt mean our world is end-ing, because in the script they say something about, ÂOh, there is more than one world.Â And that is true. Your world is world and mine is mine and when mine is ending, that doesnÂt stop yours, so weÂre just trying to help him end his world,ÂŽ she said. ÂExit the KingÂŽ is the second work Dramaworks has produced by Ionescu, following a production a few years ago of ÂThe Chairs.ÂŽ But that absurdist masterpiece was an exhausting evening of theater for both audience and players alike. ÂI think Dramaworks has done a great job of introducing all sorts of styles to their audience, so this is one more introduction of this style to their audience, and their audience seems to be pretty hungry for all sorts of things,ÂŽ she said. The work itself has a linear narrative, and is not challenging in the same ways as ÂThe Chairs,ÂŽ she said. ÂTheyÂre not going to be going, ÂWhat the heck was that?Â Which they sometimes I think they were some-times after ÂThe Chairs,Â ÂWhat was that?Â I didnÂt care. It was thrilling to me, whatever it was,ÂŽ she said. But ÂExit the KingÂŽ is not without its moments. ÂHe just doesnÂt want to give it up. ItÂs what he knows. The king and Juliette have this little duet, where he says, ÂTell me about your life.Â And the wife says, ÂYouÂve never asked her that before.ÂÂŽ Juliette rattles through a laundry list of her mundane tasks of cleaning floors, cooking and doing laundry. ÂAnd with each thing I bring up, he says, ÂOh, but you get to do that every day.Â He is staring to see the beauty in those everyday things, where weÂre just stuck in the mire of, ugh, ÂI have to cook another meal, I have to do the laundry again, I have to make the bed again today.Â Near the end of his life heÂs finding that to be pretty great,ÂŽ Ms. Dimon said. Audiences throughout South Florida also have found Ms. DimonÂs work to be pretty great. She tossed off the sour notes to great acclaim as singer Florence Foster Jen-kins in ÂSouvenirÂŽ and shouldered a wife and motherÂs anguish in ÂAll My Sons,ÂŽ which opened DramaworksÂ new Don & Ann Brown Theatre last season. ÂTheyÂre totally different, and thatÂs the joy of what I do. TheyÂre never the same,ÂŽ she said of the roles. She found her niche in theater, but it took a movie to spark Ms. DimonÂs desire to act. ÂI can tell you to the minute when I thought of it. I saw ÂCome Back Little Sheba,Â the movie with Shirley Booth, and I was in high school, I think. It was New YearÂs Eve and it was on, and I thought, ÂI want to do that and I want to do it as well as that.ÂÂŽ Ms. Dimon married and acted in community theater. But it was after her marriage ended and she went back to college that she finally began to see acting as a profes-sion. ÂNow I canÂt imagine doing anything Â„ I canÂt imagine doing anything else,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Dimon returned to Florida to care for her father after her mother died. She since has remarried and lives in Lake Worth. ÂIÂd rather be working than trying to get work,ÂŽ she said, adding that so many of her venues have disappeared over the past couple of years. She appeared in more than 15 productions at Florida Stage, which folded two years ago, and several productions at Caldwell Theatre, which slipped away last year. But it was the loss of Florida Stage that she felt most keenly. ÂThat was my home. I got my Equity card there. I did 15, 16 shows there. It was my artistic home,ÂŽ she said. Mem-bers of that company were like family to her. The South Florida theater community is small. Though companies like the Maltz and Dramaworks hold casting calls in New York, Ms. Dimon is glad that they look to local talent as well; she said she has worked with all but two of her ÂExit the KingÂŽ cast mates before. ÂItÂs really a pleasure because you know them. You can be a lot more free with the people you have worked with before. You donÂt have to worry about stepping on toes when you know them,ÂŽ she said.

Just how big a differ-ence it can make is illustrated by this extraordinary case from a rubber-bridge game where West was Alvin Roth, one of the great players of all time. His double of three notrump was bold as well as imaginative, but it would have failed dismally had he chosen the wrong opening lead. For example, if he had led a diamond, as many players in his place would have done, South would have scored the first 10 tricks. Similarly, had Roth led a heart or a club, South would have taken the first nine tricks. But Roth led a spade, and South was a dead duck. In desperation, he played dumm yÂs queen, which lost to the king and, oddly enough, simultaneously squeezed South. He was looking at nine cold tricks, but with the opponents on lead, he was in bad shape. Reluctant to part with a winner, he discarded a diamond. East thereupon returned a diamond to WestÂs jack. Roth now ma de the excellent play of the jack of spades followed by a low spade. He wanted to make sure that East would return a diamond when he took the ace of spades. Roth was afraid that, if he led the four instead of the jack, East might suddenly get nervous and return a spade to assure defeat of the contract. East did return a diamond, and the defense wound up scoring four spades and five diamonds to inflict a 900-point (1,100 today) defeat! All of which can be attributed to a well-judged double and Â„ lest we forget Â„ a well-judged opening lead. Q

You might believe you Âre in the right, but try to open your mind to the possibilities of facts youÂre currently not aware of. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas run at a hectic pace through-out much of the week. But by the week-end, the LionsÂ Dens become a purrrfect place for you Fine Felines to relax in.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 B13 +++ Is it worth $15 (3D)? NoIs it worth $10? YesI tÂs set in prehistoric times, but that doesnÂt mean the characters in ÂThe CroodsÂŽ arenÂt readily familiar. Over-protective father? Got it. Doting, push-over mother? Sure. Rebellious teenage girl? WouldnÂt be a family movie with-out one. A hunk who threatens to steal her from daddy? Thankfully, heÂs a legit good guy. Dumb teenage boy? Anything for some easy laughs. Disapproving-of-everything grandmother? ItÂs nice to know that even in the earliest days of mankind mothers-in-law tortured the poor men who married their daughters. And yet, despite the cookie-c utter, stereotypical characters and storyline that even a caveman could predict, ÂThe CroodsÂŽ has a fire-ready warmth and charm that works. The reason: Genre movies are only as good as the original-ity of the filmmakers, and this family-friendly animated comedy has exciting action and plenty of good jokes for kids of all ages to enjoy. Grug (Nicolas Cage) is a loving father who believes the best way to protect his family is for everyone to be afraid of everything all the time. This especially grates his daughter Eep (Emma Stone), whoÂs compulsively drawn to bright-ness. Accordingly, one night she escapes her familyÂs cave to track a mysterious light, which leads her to nice guy Guy (Ryan Reynolds), who warns of danger in the area. Indeed, the continents are shifting, but wife/mother Ugga (Catherine Keen-er), baby sister Sandy (Randy Thom), Gran (Cloris Leachman) and son/broth-er Thunk (Clark Duke) are so used to listening to Grug that they literally canÂt see the light. That is, until their cave is destroyed and they have no choice, at which point they set off on a grand adventure into unknown territory seek-ing a new home. Along the way they encounter scores of creatures, some creepy/scary, some loving/cute, as well as fire and Â„ sniffle Â„ themselves. Writer/directors Kirk De Micco and Chris SandersÂ story is 100 percent predictable, but enjoyment for ÂThe CroodsÂŽ comes from the familyÂs jour-ney, which is notably modern and rec-ognizable. Yes, this is ancient comedic territory, but itÂs amusing to see Nean-derthals bicker on a road trip and take Âsnap shotÂŽ photographs thatÂll last a lifetime. To this end, the film is very accessible and clean, wholesome fun for the entire family. Better, the animation is solid. The 3D is nice but not essential, as the picture is bright and rich but doesnÂt necessarily require added depth. The action scenes, though crisp and clear and striking, are not the type that lose appeal without the added dimension. Only some sequenc-es, such as Eep climbing a cliff or one of the many times Grug is shot into the air, benefit from the 3D, and theyÂre not impressive enough alone to warrant the up-charge. There are some deeper themes also in play in ÂThe CroodsÂŽ (Biblical refer-ences, xenophobia, etc.), but its earnest heart is ultimately what shines through. And if you donÂt believe me, a family of five joined me for the screening Â„ mother, father and three kids ranging in age from 4 to 10 years young Â„ and they all enjoyed it as well. Q LATEST FILMSÂ‘The CroodsÂ’ p C n o t d Â dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Monty Python veteran John Cleese contributed to the rst few drafts of the script from 2005-07. CAPSULESpring Breakers +++ (James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens) Embracing adventure and the recklessness of youth, four young women are arrested while on spring break in Florida; theyÂre bailed out by a small-time rapper/gangster named Alien (Franco). No doubt itÂs crass and vulgar, but it also offers a stylish, unique spin on the typical coming-of-age story. Rated R.The Incredible Burt Wonderstone +++ (Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi) Veteran Vegas magician Burt Won-derstone (Mr. Carell) splits with his part-ner (Mr. Buscemi) and tries to make it on his own after a new street magician (Mr. Carrey) becomes the latest fad. Some of Mr. CarreyÂs gags are ridiculously extreme, and itÂs a c ookie-c utter story but itÂs also funny and charming. Rated PG-13.Dead Man Down ++ (Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard) A low-level hood (Mr. Farrell) is planning to kill his boss (Mr. Howard) when his neighbor (Ms. Rapace) complicates things. ItÂs an interesting storyline, but far too much is held in reserve until the end Â„ long after weÂve stopped caring. Rated R. Oz The Great and Powerful +++ (James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz) A magician (Mr. Franco) is whisked away to Oz and must save the enchanted land from the wicked witch in this prequel to ÂThe Wizard of Oz.ÂŽ The visuals are striking and the story comes together well. ItÂs not a new classic, but itÂs not blasphemous either. Rated PG. Q

B14 WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Lighthouse ArtCenter announces staff changes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Lighthouse ArtCenter announced three changes in staffing. Assistant Curator Barbra Broidy has been promoted to curator and assistant to the director. Sarah Nastri, who previ-ously has been an instructor, has been hired as the data and media coordinator. Longstanding staff member and instruc-tor Cara McKinley has been promoted to School of Art manager. Starting out at Lighthouse ArtCenter in February 2010 as an intern, Ms. Broidy has been a strong driving force in the museum. In her ne post she man-ages all operations having to do with the numerous amount of artwork that passes through the ArtCenter. In addi-tion, she is responsible for many of the operational and procedural issues of the ArtCenter and writes grants, while sup-porting the director in many areas. Ms. Broidy attended Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where she studied graphic and industrial design and is a graduate of Long Island Univer-sity in New York with a bachelor of fine arts in arts management. Ms. Nastri has both the creative spirit and technical know-how that was a per-fect match for the role of data and media coordinator. Born in upstate New York, she now lives in Jupiter. She earned a bachelor Âs degree in printmaking/drawing from the University of Central Florida, and a certificate in web design from Palm Beach State College. She first became involved with the Lighthouse ArtCen-ter by exhibiting her artwork, teaching classes and volunteering at the 125 Club. Ms. McKinley received her bachelor of fine arts from Florida Atlantic University and has been a potter and ceramic artist for nine years, also making time for paint-ing, glass blowing, and jewelry making. She gained experience teaching in the public school system and other non-profit art centers. She first joined the Lighthouse ArtCenter as an instructor, and became a staff member in 2010 as an administrative assistant at the School of Art. In addition to teaching classes, she has been promot-ed to School of Art Manager. For more information, see lighthouse arts.org or call 746-3101. Q BRIFT to perform Â“The Third ManÂ” SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYActors from The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre will present the highly atmospheric ÂThe Third Man,ÂŽ on Saturday, April 20, in much the same way as it was presented in 1949 during the golden age of radio. Utilizing spe-cially designed props and some unusual devices for sound effects, the performers will re-enact the mystery surrounding the murder of Harry Lime, a man who was not what he appeared to be. Audience participation is part of the fun. In this Cold War spy classic written by Graham Greene, Holly Martins, an American pulp novelist, arrives in postwar Vienna only to discover that his old friend Harry has been killed in a traffic accident. The speed with which his funeral takes place raises many questions that need answering. Radio Waves will be hosted and directed by award-winning actor Gordon McCon-nell, who is an instructor at BRIFT. McCo-nnellÂs career has taken him from Los Angeles to London to Amsterdam to New York City and, eventually to South Florida, where his performances have earned him the prestigious Carbonell Award. The play is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Seating is limited. Call 743-9955 for tickets. Advance ticket purchases are recommended. ÂThe Third ManÂŽ will be presented at the Town of Lake ParkÂs Mirror Ballroom located at 535 Park Avenue, Lake Park. The Mirror Ballroom is on the National Regis-ter of Historic Places.

The auditions will feature casting for four of the theaterÂs professional productions: ÂAnnie,ÂŽ ÂThe King and I,ÂŽ ÂThrough the Looking Glass,ÂŽ and ÂHamlet.ÂŽ ÂThis is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for kids to work with the-ater professionals and to be a part of the audition process,ÂŽ said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director, in a prepared release. ÂWe are delighted to be inviting local families to our theater to take part in four of our shows during the 2013-14 season.ÂŽ Auditions will be held at the Jupiter Community Center, 200 Military Trail, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 27.

Students are asked to wear dance clothing and dance shoes or sneakers (no sandals or open-toed shoes). Several dozen children and teens who auditioned last year performed in ÂThe Music Man,ÂŽ ÂThrough the Looking GlassÂŽ and ÂThe Laramie Project.ÂŽ ÂIt was so rewarding to see so many children perform in the theaterÂs shows last season,ÂŽ said Jennifer Sardone-Shiner, director of marketing. ÂThis is a wonderful way to expose local children to professional theater, and weÂre so happy that students have the opportu-nity to be cast in four of the theaterÂs upcoming productions next season.ÂŽ A free optional audition workshop will be offered on Saturday, April 13, at the theater. For additional information and to register, visit www.jupiterthe-atre.org/fsts. Advance registration is strongly encouraged. First Step to Stardom is sponsored by John Osher and WPEC-TV, CBS12. Here is a bit more about each of the shows for which students will be auditioning: ÂHamlet,ÂŽ part of the theaterÂs Youth ArtistsÂ Chair program, follows Prince HamletÂs quest for truth, justice and ultimately revenge following the death of his father and a ghostly visit. Perfor-mances will take place Saturday, August 24. ÂThrough the Looking Glass,ÂŽ part of the theaterÂs Emerging Artist Series, is a contemporary retelling of the childrenÂs classic, Alice in Wonderland, which comes to life with eye-popping sets, costumes, magic and puppetry. In a col-orful land where animals talk and char-acters amuse, 12-year-old Alice learns to Âlook in the mirrorÂŽ and see the truly special person she is. With an exciting original pop score, this adventure is filled with fun twists the entire fam-ily will enjoy. It will be sponsored by The Elmore Family Foundation, John Osher, and The Albert E. and Birdie W. Einstein Fund. Performances will be November 15-16. ÂAnnie,ÂŽ part of the TheaterÂs season subscription, is a classic musical that brings AmericaÂs favorite comic-strip orphan to life. This Tony Award-winning musical is set in the Great Depression. This adventure-filled musi-cal arrives just in time for the holiday season and will delight kids of all ages. Sponsored by John MacDonald Com-pany. Performances will take place from December 3-22. ÂThe King and I,ÂŽ part of the theaterÂs season subscription, follows a British schoolteacher hired by the king to modernize his country Â…19th century Siam. This Rodgers and Hammerstein musical masterpiece is complete with opulent sets, lavish costumes and a lush score of classics including ÂGetting to Know You,ÂŽ ÂHello Young LoversÂŽ and many more. This Tony Award-winning Broadway phenomenon will be spon-sored by Joe and Kathy Savarese and Homecare America. Performances will take place from March 18-April 6, 2014. Now celebrating its 10th season, the not-for-profit Maltz Jupiter Theatre has become one of FloridaÂs preeminent professional theaters, committed to production and education through its collaborations with local and nation-al artists. Currently the stateÂs larg-est award-winning regional theater, the theater draws over 70,000 people annu-ally, serves a subscription base of more than 7,530 and has world-class class-room facilities in support of its Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Per-forming Arts, which serves hundreds of youth and adults. The theater is a mem-ber of the prestigious League of Resi-dent Theaters and has earned numer-ous Carbonell Awards, South FloridaÂs highest honor for artistic excellence, including the prestigious Bill Von Mau-rer Award for Theatrical Excellence in 2012. For more information about the TheaterÂs upcoming shows and Conser-vatory, visit www.jupitertheatre.org or call the box office at 575-2223. Other Maltz auditions set The first of the Maltz auditions for the shows in its 2013/14 season are Thursday, April 4, for Dial M For Mur-der (Oct. 27 Â… Nov. 10, 2013). Performers are asked to be ready to read passages from the script. They should bring a headshot and rsum. Other upcoming auditions in Jupiter include auditions for all of the other shows in the TheatreÂs 2013/14 season, including Annie (Dec. 3 Â… 22), A Chorus Line (Jan. 14 Â… Feb. 2), Other Desert Cit-ies (Feb. 16 Â… March 2) and The King and I (March 18 Â… April 6). Between 400 and 700 people typically audition in New York for each of the MaltzÂs large-scale musicals, and as many as 250 people audition for its plays, the theater said in a prepared statement. But the theater gives strong consideration to local performers due to its desire to support local talent. There are also financial incentives to hiring locally, since the theater is required to offer housing to any union performer outside a 50-mile radius. All directors are present at call-backs.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYStock and home prices may be on their way up, but luckily for wine devo-t ees, itÂs still possible to find some very good wines at prices that are down-right reasonable. Several forces drive that price stability. Shanken News Daily, the cybernews business arm for Wine Spectator, recently reported that, ÂPrice promo-tion remains necessary at all tiers.ÂŽ Translation: While wholesale prices may be rising, wineries and distribu-tors are offsetting the increases with larger discounts to retailers to keep the prices stable. ÂGlobally the stocks are somewhat depleted, but that really hasnÂt affected pricing yet,ÂŽ Chris Fehrnstrom, chief marketing officer for Constellation Brands, told Shanken. ÂHonestly, we donÂt anticipate that in the $5 to $15 band there is going to be a lot of price movement over the course of the next year.ÂŽ Another factor keeping import prices low is the economic instability in Europe, especially in Spain, where more than 6 million of its 46 million residents are unemployed, according to The Guardian online newspaper. This leads to weaker domestic demand and downward price pressure on exports to take up the drop in sales, which in turn influences the prices of all imports into this country. Finding value means getting the most bang for your buck, and there are value wines in all price segments. In the upper price categories, there is plenty of discounting going on. Wines that normally sell for $50 and more can be purchased at about $30. But most wine buyers have a price Âsweet spotÂŽ that is lower than that. Mine is $15 per bottle Â„ at that price I look for great values and quality; for higher priced wines, IÂm more cautious with my wine-buying dollars. To find attractively priced wines, consider branching out. If you typically drink chardonnay, consider trying albarino or viognier. Instead of Napa merlot or cabernet, experiment with grenache or mourvedre. YouÂll find some well-priced wines from the west coast as well as competitively priced Spanish wines. DonÂt forget to look south, too. Malbec and tor-rontes from Argentina are excellent wines and most cost less than $20. There is also a broad selection of Chilean wines available that are reasonably priced and taste great. To help you find some interesting value wines, IÂve made a list of some of those IÂve tried and liked of late. Q Monte Oton Garnacha Bodegas Borsao 2011 ($10): This richly colored Spanish wine has bright Garnacha aromas of ripe black fruits, as well as blueberries and plums. These are followed in the mouth with black cherry and spices, leading to a warm medium-length finish. Q Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel 2010 ($12): This California wine offers lively raspberry aroma, leading into a palate mixed with blackberries and a touch of spice. The oak aging smoothes the full-bodied tannin structure into a long, lingering finish. Q Columbia Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($14): A choice Washington selection, this dark rich Cabernet opens with a blackberry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, itÂs medium bodied, well balanced and smooth. The flavor is fruit in the front of the palate, full of blueberry and cherry with some mild oak. The modest tannins lead to a dry smooth finish. Q Cono Sur Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2011 ($12) Starts with aromas of stone, pear and green pepper, and is limey on the palate as well, with slight acid tinge on its refreshing dry finish. This good value Chilean wine will go well with seafood. Q Dry Creek Fum Blanc 2011 Sonoma County ($13): The initial aromas are a little grassy, with lime, citrus, and white pepper. The palate is well structured with refreshing citrus and mineral notes, Granny Smith apple and a little zippy acid on the linger-ing finish. Q Kung Fu Girl Riesling Charles Smith Columbia Valley 2011 ($13): DonÂt let the name put you off. This Washington state wine is from the Evergreen Vineyard in the Columbia Valley, and starts with juicy lime and stone fruit aromas and flavors, leading to a well-framed min-eral finish. Q Pine Ridge Chenin BlancViognier 2012 ($12): The 2012 vintage of this interesting blend fills the nose with a bouquet of light floral, juicy melon and peach notes that lead to grapefruit and a touch of pineapple, ending with a pear note. The lively fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish. Q Terrazas de los Andes Reserva Malbec 2009 ($15) Fresh aromas of jam and ripened plums lead to a mouthful of dried cherries and fresh berry fruit. Lush in the mouth with herbs and minerals on the medium fin-ish. Q COURTESY PHOTO Kung Fu Girl Riesling Charles Smith Columbia Valley 2011 is a comparative bargain at about $13 a bottle.ThereÂ’s plenty of great-tasting wine for $15 Â– or less VINO i m B Â p jim McCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTODry Creek Fum Blanc 2011 Sonoma County is available for around $13 a bottle.Hanging Out With...Jesse FurmanHot spots where cultural leaders cool their heels Entertaining is in Jesse FurmanÂs blood. Mr. Furman, who is managing director at Atlantic Theater and a teacher at the Atlantic Arts Academy and St. MarkÂs School, also performs comedy as part of the Jove Comedy Experience and has started a radio show called ÂThe Shed,ÂŽ which airs at 8 p.m. Thurs-days on WJTW-FM 100.3 (those out-side the small stationÂs range can listen at wjtwfm.com). On his new show, Mr. Furman and his pals Kevin Sinicki and Jason Probel and Mike Donovan discuss a range of topics. ÂWe grew up together, three buddies. We rode the elementary school bus together,ÂŽ Mr. Furman said. ÂThursday night was guys night and we would go to ChiliÂs and have chips and queso. We were sitting around one night and said it would be really cool to do on the radio.ÂŽ As luck would have it a friend from WJTW happened to stop in at ChiliÂs (65 U.S. 1 N, Jupiter; 575-6900) and liked the idea. ÂWe have all kind of opinions and ideas. ItÂs kind of like ÂThe View,Â but you hear it instead of see it,ÂŽ Mr. Fur-man said. Speaking of seeing things, there are two places with a view that he likes to take visitors. ÂI like to take them to the Square Grouper (1111 Love St., Jupiter; 5750252 or squaregrouper.net) or Sailfish Marina (98 Lake Drive, Palm Beach Shores; 842-8449 or sailfishmarina.com), and theyÂre not too touristy,ÂŽ he said. ÂThereÂs a lot of locals there, so you feel like youÂre not looking at something fabricated. If I wasnÂt at work, I think thatÂs where IÂd be, with a beer in hand just kind of relaxing.ÂŽ It helps that Mr. Furman, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, has a history in the area. ÂI grew up here, so I have these old haunts I went to as a kid,ÂŽ he said. ÂThere are a couple of places in Lake Park. One is CamilliÂs Pizza (927 Park Ave.; 844-3424). ÂTheir salad dressing is amazing,ÂŽ he said. At one time, the walls of the place were covered with photos of local sports teams that included Mr. Furman and his pals. Those photos now fill albums. And the generations continue.ÂIÂm sitting there with my mom and my wifeÂs parents and my two kids,ÂŽ he said, laughing. ÂWeÂre big fans of ProntiÂs (1440 10th St.; 842-3457). ÂItÂs great and itÂs been there a million years.ÂŽ ThereÂs a certain familiarity. ÂThe waitress Irene calls me Âmeat sauce,ÂÂŽ he said. ÂThey were around and they are still around and still sur-viving in a big-box world.ÂŽ Speaking of small spots, another favorite is the Dune Dog (775 Old Dixie Highway, Jupiter; 744-6667 or dunedog.com). ÂItÂs crazy how good they do. ItÂs a tiny little place, with decking, bench and hotdogs. That equals success,ÂŽ he said. But he is in the entertainment business, and Jupiter is not known for its late-night hangouts. So where does he take the entertainers who play Atlantic Theater? Â Too Bizaare in Jupiter (287 E. Indiantown Road, No. 2B, Jupiter; 745-6262 or toobizaare.com) is great. It has great sushi and a really eclectic vibe in there. ItÂs almost the opposite of Square Grouper,ÂŽ he said. ÂLate at night youÂre pretty limited. ItÂs open later and has a hip vibe to it ... Bobby Collins would like a Too Bizaare kind of vibe.ÂŽ Q Â„ Scott Simmons COURTESY PHOTO Jesse Furman (third from left) appears on Â“The ShedÂ” with pals (from left) Jason Probel, Mike Donovan and Kevin Sinicki.
FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Salad with Thousand Island dressing The Place: Pr ontiÂs Italian Kitchen, 1440 10th St., Lake Park; 842-3457 The Price: $3.75 The Details: For four decades, my cousins have made their way to ProntiÂs. They were on to something, too.ProntiÂs has remained a traditional red-sauce Italian place that makes visitors feel at home dining on pasta and pizzas. But donÂt forget your greens when you go.This small salad comes with crisp quantities of mixed greens, wedges of tomato, crinkle-cut carrots, black olives and sliced onions. And itÂs covered with ProntiÂs homemade Thousand Island dressing. The creamy dressing Â„ the Gorgonzola dressing also is to die for Â„ is rich, but not too rich, and filled with bits of green peppers, onion, parsley and pickle rel-ish. Owner Doug Wojciechowski says his chefs puree the ingredients until thereÂs just a smidge of texture to them. Whatever they do, it works. Q Â„ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE As you sit at a table at Park Avenue BBQ Grille, you canÂt help but notice recycled beer bottles that are used as pickle dishes. These beer bottles are not only part of Dean LavalleeÂs newest endeavor with Vermiculture, but since he details each dish, he says it is his way of being with his customers at every table. Mr. Lavallee, the owner of Park Avenue BBQ Grille, was born and raised in South Florida and attended Palm Beach State College, where he studied pre-law. Starting as a dish-washer at LumÂs at the age of 14, he has stayed in the restaurant business ever since. ÂThereÂs a big difference between the idea of law and the practice of law,ÂŽ he says. ÂBeing in the restaurant business allows you wear many different hats. It never gets boring and there are never two days alike.ÂŽ Twenty-five years ago in Lake Park, Mr. Lavallee opened Park Avenue BBQ Grille, where he focused on barbecue. ÂI tell my chefs to make the food as if their mother were coming to dinner and to cook what they know,ÂŽ he says, referring to the promise of consistency. Mr. Lavallee has added eight more restaurants into the mix. He says, although they have expanded greatly, he is always looking for ways to make his restaurants better.

Colon health is one of our top priorities. Did you know that colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. for both men and women? The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 140,000 new cases of colon and rectal cancer will be diagnosed in 2013. The incidence of colorectal cancer has been declining for most of the past 20 years, which is largely attributed to an increase in screening for this disease. In addition to screening there are things you can do to reduce your risk of developing this disease, including: maintaining a healthy weight, increasing your physical activity, keep-ing your diet low in red or processed meat, limiting your alcohol consumption, eating more fruits and vegetables and not smoking. These lifestyle changes can reduce your risk of developing many other diseases as well. There are risk factors that you cannot change, but should be aware of, including: personal or family history of colorectal cancer and/or polyps, personal history of chronic inflam-matory bowel disease, and certain inherited conditions (such as Lynch syndrome, also known as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer), and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).

Elizabeth Schwartz DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS ST. JOSEPHÂ’S ASSISTED LIVING AND MEMORY CARE (561) 747-1135stjosephs-jupiter.com Transitional care eases burden of re-admissions to hospitals I tÂs a busy Friday night in the emer-gency room of a local hospital. An 87-year-old patient with congestive heart failure comes in not feeling well because she forgot to take her medicine. Doctors stabilize her and send her home. Twelve hours later, she returns to the emergency room because she forgot to take her medi-cine again. ItÂs an all too common scenario caused by a rapidly aging senior population who often donÂt have medication management or regular medical oversight of their condition on a rou-tine basis. ÂThis cycle repeats and plays out all of the time,ÂŽ says Sherrian Daley, R.N., resident care director of St. JosephÂs of Jupiter Assisted Living and Memory Care Community. ÂNon-compliance can be a contributing factor for hospital re-admission for many seniors.ÂŽ With recent cutbacks to Medicare, returning patients can cost hospitals hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many times, seniors return weeks or even days later because of lack of follow-up care or access to needed services like short-term rehabilitation or skilled nursing. ÂThere is a definite gap in services for these patients,ÂŽ says Daley. ÂThere is no short-term fix or place for them to go for intermediate medication management or clinical oversight when they donÂt qualify for a long-term hospital stay.ÂŽ One possible alternative to help is a respite stay program that can provide the short-term services seniors need before returning home. St. JosephÂs Assisted Living and Memory Care community in Jupiter offers a program called Tran-sitional Living Care (TLC) designed to offer a 14to 30-day stay in a safe and social setting with clinical and medical oversight. TLC is for emergency room patients who are not admitted and do not qualify for Medicare skilled nursing care. It can also help seniors who are at-risk to return home due to absence of a care-giver, need for medication management or other safety concerns, or patients who are caregivers and need respite for themselves or a family member. ÂSt. JosephÂs of JupiterÂs TLC program provides relief to hospital re-admissions and can give families of these patients peace of mind knowing their loved one is well cared for before returning home,ÂŽ said Tish MacDonald, L.P.N., assistant resident care director of St. JosephÂs. The program is for patients with a wide range of medical complications from con-gestive heart failure and dehydration to diabetes and AlzheimerÂs disease. Services include medication management, rehabilitation services, diabetic management program, geriatric consult-ing and physician services, fall preven-tion, hospice and home health, ambula-tion, transferring assistance and fall-risk assessment. St. JosephÂs of Jupiter provides an elegant and affordable lifestyle enriched with amenities that enhance care, comfort and wellness as well as an affiliation with Jupiter Medical Center and a relationship with nation-ally recognized dementia care special-ist, Teepa Snow, to provide ongoing dementia care training.

ÂWhy I drive past 32 other chiropractors to visit Dr. Papa In just two weeks worth of sessions at Dr. PapaÂs office, my lower back pain (caused by a herniated disc in my lower back) barely registers anymore. Better yet, IÂm more mobile. I donÂt have to stretch my back after every time I sit in a chair. It is easier for me to pick objects up off the floor. I even surfed a few days last week without a hitch (no pain the next day too!) I believe Dr. Papa was able to provide these quick results because: 1) He took the time and effort to listen to me explain exactly how I injured myself. 2) He properly diagnosed the problem. 3) He prescribed the right treatment. Could the 32 other chiropractors I drive by every time I visit Dr. PapaÂs office have gotten the same results? Possibly. Would I take a chance with them after seeing what Dr. Papa has achieved? Not in a million years.ÂŽ Â… Rob Gramer, Engineer, Jupiter, FL FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2013 C3 C olorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United States in both men and women, with more than 143,000 new cases predicted for 2012. The term ÂcolorectalÂŽ actually com-prises two different entities that are often treated very differently. They behave dif-ferently, having different pat-terns of spread and a different prognosis for each stage at presentation. In particular, radiation therapy frequently plays a major role in the treatment of rectal cancer, both in terms of increasing sur-vival rates and improving the quality of life of our patients through preservation of the anal sphincter, thereby eliminat-ing the need for a permanent colostomy (a bag attached to the front of the abdo-men to collect the feces). Modern cancer treatment often involves what we call Âmulti-disciplinary care,ÂŽ whereby multiple specialists such as sur-geons, medical oncologists (chemothera-py specialists), and radiation oncologists work together to maximize the chances for success by combining our particular areas of expertise. Rectal cancer is an excellent example of this process. The rectum is defined as the last portion of the large intestine, the portion of the bowel extending from the sigmoid colon to the anal canal. Its major func-tion is to store the stool prior to elimi-nation, and the muscle that controls this process is called the anal sphincter. The type of surgery that is necessary for the removal of a cancer arising in this region is very much dependent upon the exact location of the tumor Â„ the closer it is to the critical anal sphincter (a low rectal cancer), the more likely it is that an APR (abdomi-noperineal resection) will be required which involves a permanent colostomy. If the tumor is located far enough away from the anal sphincter (an upper or mid-rectal cancer), then a different sur-gical procedure called an LAR (low anterior resection) is feasible and will avoid the need for the colostomy as the sphincter is preserved. Many cases are Âborderline,ÂŽ that is, the cancer is just a little too close for comfort to spare the sphincter but, with a little shrink-age, it might just Âmake the cut.ÂŽ That is where radiation therapy, with the help of concurrent ÂsensitizingÂŽ chemo-therapy, comes in. Pre-operative radiation therapy, with help from sensitizing chemotherapy (often with a well-known drug called 5-FU, or sometimes with an oral ver-sion known as ÂXelodaÂŽ), can frequent-ly allow these borderline patients to become eligible for sphincter-saving procedures. The usual course of treat-ment lasts around four to five weeks, and is very well tolerated with only mild to moder-ate, usually temporary side effects. Using modern radia-tion therapy techniques, such as IMRT (Intensity Modu-lated Radiation Therapy) or IGRT (Image Guided Radia-tion Therapy) or both, the side effects are much reduced and often eliminated com-pletely. Then, the patient is re-assessed after around four weeks or so and a decision reached as to whether the sphincter can be spared, mak-ing some fortunate patients (and their treating physicians like me) very happy indeed. For other patients with rectal cancer, surgery can be performed immediately after diagnosis and then post-operative radiation therapy and chemotherapy may be utilized to increase the chances for long-term survival and cure. Once again, modern treatment techniques such as IMRT help to make the course of radiation therapy much more toler-able and with a greatly reduced risk of complications. The major factors determining whether radiation therapy is needed are the depth of penetration of the tumor into the wall of the rectum and if the cancer has spread into the regional lymph nodes. These factors are expressed in the term Âstaging,ÂŽ usually using the ÂTNMÂŽ system, which stands for Tumor, Nodes, and Metasta-sis. Patients, based upon the findings at the time of surgery, are given a stag-ing designation, such as T2 N1 M0 for example, which helps to define the best treatment for that patient afterwards. All patients should be appropriately staged, and you, as a colorectal cancer patient, should know your own stage. Stages are often also grouped together into simpler categories, such as Stage I, Stage II, Stage III, or Stage IV to make it easier to report on treatment results. With the appropriate use of post-oper-ative radiation therapy, clinical research studies have consistently demonstrated improved rates of local and regional control of disease in the pelvis as well as survival. Much is known about rectal cancer, but clinical trials continue in order to improve upon these already favorable outcomes for many patients. Survival is extremely important, but so is quality of life, and anal sphincter preservation is an excellent example of how modern cancer treatment can offer optimal func-tion and cure at the same time. Make sure that you receive the best treatment possible the first time around, as recur-rences are often more difficult to treat and cure. Seek out the best physicians and facilities with the most modern, up-to-date equipment and staff to give you the best chance to Âsave your life and your sphincter.ÂŽ Q Saving lives, saving sphincters: The role of modern radiation therapy in rectal cancer Dr. Jerome Spunberg M.D., FACR, FACROwww.sfrollc.com877-930-7376 SOUTH FLORIDA RADIATION ONCOLOGYCOURTESY PHOTO

Answer: Normal vision requires the natural focusing abilities of the human crystalline lens to focus light on the retina. A cataract is the natural clouding of that lens. The most common cause of a cataract is age related, usually starting after age 60, but sometimes they can begin at a younger age. The human crystalline lens inside the eye is made mostly of water and protein. The protein is arranged to let light pass through and focus on the retina. However, sometimes the protein clumps together, clouding small areas of the lens which blocks light from reach-ing the retina and interferes with vision. The cloudiness of your lens may affect only a small part of the lens but, over time, it may grow larger, making it harder to see. Because less light is able to reach the retina, your vision may become dull and blurry. Symptoms of a cataract include painless blurring of vision; sensitivity to light and glare, or a halo around lights; poor night vision; frequent changes in your eyeglass prescription; needing bright light to read; changes in the way you see colors or colors seem faded; and loss of contrast. Once a cataract has formed, the most effective way to resolve vision is to surgically remove the cloudy cataract and replace it with a clear lens implant. These clear lenses inserted at the time of surgery are called intraocular lenses (IOL). Dr. Benaim Âs technique for cataract/implant surgery uses no needles or stitches, has a microscopic incision and takes about 10 minutes.

But exercising harder without adequate preparation often leads to injury. Then thereÂs recovery time, possi-bly the need for rehabilitation, and ultimately youÂre back at the beginning in terms of fit-ness, strength, and endurance. Injuries are to be avoided, if at all possible. The best way to avoid injury is to exercise smarter. Exercising smarter is also the best way to achieve continual, progressive gains in fitness, health, and well-being. Exercising smarter means doing what youÂre capable of doing, and then doing a little bit more. For example, if youÂre a runner and typically run three miles a day, three times a week, it wouldnÂt be smart to do an eight-mile run the next time you go out. T he likely outcome would be a strained muscle, shin splints, or worse. If you lift weights and typical-ly bench press 100 pounds, it wouldnÂt be smart to find out what it feels like to bench press 150 pounds. What it could feel like is a back, neck, or shoulder injury. In either scenario, the price paid for attempting to train ÂharderÂŽ is at least two weeks of down time, possibly much longer, while you recover from your injury. Of course, weÂve all made mistakes and sometimes training inju-ries just happen, but tempting fate by doing too much is not, in fact, Âsmart.ÂŽ The goal with any type of exercise is to progress gradually over time. For example, if youÂre 60 years old and havenÂt exercised for many years, a walking program is a good way to begin. On your first day, walk at a comfort-able, steady pace for 10 minutes. That may not feel like much, but you will be increasing your total time over the next four to six weeks. The next day, add a couple of minutes. As long as youÂre continuing to feel good, add a couple of minutes on every second day or so, building up consistently to a total of 30 minutes per day. At this point, youÂre walk-ing 30 minutes per day, five times per week. Next, every second day or so, increase your pace by a bit. DonÂt increase your pace if you feel uncomfortable or feel as if youÂre working too hard. Be in tune with what youÂre doing. After four to six weeks of gradually increas-ing your pace, youÂll probably be able to walk 30 minutes per day, five days a week, at a nice brisk pace. You may also notice that youÂve lost some weight, you feel more flexible, youÂre standing more upright, your skin has a nice, healthy glow, and youÂre sleeping more soundly and more restfully. Use the same gradual approach with strength training. Start with lighter weights, not heavier weights, than you think you can use. With lighter weights, you can build up your strength over time. With weights that are too heavy, thereÂs always the danger of incurring an injury that will set you back and interfere with your training. Exercis-ing smarter leads to consistent gains in strength, muscle mass, ability to do physical work, and overall health. ItÂs natural to want to exercise harder. But exercising smarter is the way to go for long-term benefit without the danger of time-wasting injuries. Exer-cising smarter is the effective way to maximize the value of our investment in physical fitness. Q Sources: Braham R, et al: Can we teach moderate intensity activity?

C8 MARCH 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY T here are many myths and misconceptions that surround yoga, that make even the brave hearted potential yogi timid in trying this form of exercise. The following list helps to debunk the mystery behind the yoga doors for those who are yet to try it. Myth #1: Yoga is only for flexible and double-jointed people. Yoga is for everyone! And I mean everyone! All ages, sizes, ability, and yes flexibil-ity levels. If we all waited until we were flexible, then we would have a bunch of empty yoga studios worldwide. Yoga can be tailored to your individual needs and it doesn Ât require you to turn into a pretzel to enjoy all the benefits of yoga. Although gaining flexibility, especially with the increased temperature offered in hot yoga, is cer-tainly one of the added benefits. Myth #2: Yoga is a too easy (or too difficult) The practice of yoga can be as physically challenging or as restorative as anyone wants. It depends on the style of yoga as well as the teacher and practi-tioner. All classes at Bodhi Hot Yoga are all levels which allow teachers to teach to the first level pose and then give options for those that want to advance it. It is up to you as to what level that day you are up for. Myth #3: Yoga is all about burning incense and chilling out. The only burning at Bodhi Hot Yoga we do is calories and sweat. Each class is set to fun popular music and is meant to be energetic, fun and a good workout. Classes start by setting an intention and then finish with 15-20 minutes of floor work and final relaxation. Complete full body workout for the body and soul. Myth #4: You can practice once a month and achieve good results. Yoga is called a ÂpracticeÂŽ because it takes just that. It takes time to build strength, flexibility and balance and just like most activities, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. Each 90-minute class allows for the perfect balance of mind and body transforma-tion. Myth #5: Yoga is only for women.While it may seem like more women gravitate towards yoga, the fact is that yoga is for both women and men who crave increased physical and mental well being. Just look at all the pro athletes that have taken up yoga to supplement their mainstream workouts and aid performance. Yoga has a whole range of exercises that help strengthen your chest, back, stomach, arm and leg muscles. Take a look at advanced practi-tioners, including males; their muscular strength and development may surprise you. So what are you waiting for? Grab your mat, your towel, and some water and get ready to sweat!

The Get In Shape for Women studio at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens offers a step-by-step program to transform your body effectively, with one of the most efficient programs in South Florida. Get In Shape For Women Âs program offers small-group personal training for women. A per-sonal trainer works with one to no more than four women at a time in a private, upscale studio for as little as $19 a ses-sion. Each training session consists of 30 minutes of weight training, 30 minutes of cardio and nutrition coaching, for a balanced fitness program that produces amazing results. ItÂs a unique four-part program. No fad diets or diet pills. Accountability is one of the aspects that separates this program from other group-training programs. At Get In Shape For Women, you are held account-able to the system of weight training, cardio and nutrition. Trainers first help you set an achievable goal, and then hold you accountable for reaching it by having you weigh in weekly and record your body-fat percentage once a month to make sure you hit your goal. The unique weight-training program is one of most popular reasons women join this studio. Weight training plays a vital role in body transformation, injury prevention and overall health and well-being. Weight training increases muscle tone, which increases resting metabo-lism. For example, if you increase your muscle tone by just five pounds, you will increase your resting metabolism by approximately 200 calories per day (1,400 calories per week). You also will burn approximately 200 calories during your weight-training workout. Weight training three times per week will yield an additional 600 calories burned. In total, you can burn approximately 2,000 calories per week from weight training and its metabolic response. Weight training is also important to help decrease the risk of osteoporosis and certain injuries related to a loss of muscle strength, poor posture and muscle imbalances. At Get In Shape For Women, 30 minutes of weight training is followed by 30 minutes of cardiovascular training. The workouts can be customized to ability. All exercises are done under the direct supervision of a certified personal trainer. These exercises include free weights, Life Fitness weight machines, lunges, squats, core training, pushes and pulls that work every muscle in your body for optimal results. Losing weight is the primary reason consumers seek personal trainers. Nutri-tion and eating habits are a common topic throughout the Get In Shape For Women facility. The program offers a six-day-a-week nutrition program that includes six small meals a day. By eating six small and fre-quent high-quality meals (consisting of fruits and vegetables, high quality lean protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and eight to 10 glasses of water), per day, clients decrease their daily caloric consumption by approximately 500 calo-ries, or 3,500 calories per week. One pound of fat equals approximately 3,500 calories, which means that coupled with a weight training and car-dio training program, the program can yield close to two pounds of body-fat lost per week. This is not a quick fix or temporary weight loss. The Get in Shape for Women studios in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton are part of one of the fastest growing health chains in the last 10 years. The first studios opened more than six years ago in Boston, and there are now 97 stu-dios. Since each member gets her own permanent training time, some studios have a wait of more than a year to join. Both studios in Florida are less than 2 years old, so there is still space avail-able.

It is important to know your family history and determine whether or not you are at an increased risk. Discuss your risk factors with your physician to determine the appropriate screening tests and how frequently they should be done. Men and women who are at an average risk of developing this disease should begin screening at age 50. More than 90 percent of colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed in those ages 50 and older. The gold standard for screening tests is a colonoscopy, which allows for the detec-tion and removal of colorectal polyps that might have become cancerous. The Center for Excellence in Digestive Health offers colonoscopies in our state-of-the-art GI lab; the test is cov-ered by insurance. The Center treats many digestive disorders, including, but not limited to, BarrettÂs esophagus, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), hemorrhoids, inflammatory bowel disease and motil-ity disorders. We take a multidisciplinary approach to your care and offer a full range of services including advanced diagnos-tics, endoscopic therapies, 3D anorectal manometry, capsule endoscopy, bron-choscopy and navigational bronchos-copy, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Our teamÂs goal is to offer treatment options to improve your diges-tive health.

Grand Opening Awaken. ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com MARCH 2013 healthy living C11Marine compound discovery shows promise for COPD patients THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Pharmacy researchers at the University of Florida have isolated a new marine compound they believe could lead to improved drug therapies for pulmonary diseases by inhibiting their progression rather than managing their symptoms. Known as symplostatin 5, the compound was extracted from blue-green algae collected in Cetti Bay, Guam, by Hendrik Luesch, the Frank A. Duckworth eminent scholar chair in drug research and development. The new compound targets an enzyme overactive in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, acute respiratory distress syndrome, cys-tic fibrosis and other diseases. ÂThese compounds can potentially offer a new opportunity to treat COPD and related diseases in a different way and possibly more effectively,ÂŽ Mr. Luesch says. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 120,000 Americans each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Current thera-pies alleviate symptoms of COPD but do not slow disease progression. Only one drug, Sivelestat, targets the enzyme, called elastase, but its marginal effects are delaying further clinical approvals, according to Mr. Luesch. Elastase is an enzyme that breaks down a variety of proteins. In COPD, where there is excessive enzyme activity, this contributes in part to lung damage and inflammation. The effects of elastase on these processes contribute to the irre-versible destruction of lung tissues typi-cally observed in COPD patients.Lilibeth Salvador, a researcher in Mr. Luesch Âs Marine Natural Products lab, led the investigation that revealed blue-green algae prevented elastase-driven changes in bronchial connective tissue cells. Ms. Salvador, who will earn her doctorate from the UF College of Pharmacy in May, uses a soccer analogy to describe how the compound may prove to be a more effective drug therapy. ÂBy inhibiting this enzyme, we prevent one of the key players in the initiation of COPD. So, we prevent the ball from being relayed on to other players involved in the progression of the disease,ÂŽ she says. Blue-green algae investigated by the Marine Natural Products lab contain naturally occurring molecules essential for survival in a harsh marine environ-ment. These ingredients are what Mr. Luesch believes will lead to a new source of drugs that he hopes to develop for improved treatments for patients suf-fering from COPD and a host of other diseases. From his marine samples collected in the Atlantic side of the Florida Keys to as far away as Guam in the Pacific, Mr. Luesch has discovered dozens of prom-ising compounds. His lab has already chemically synthesized several of these natural products and designed and gen-erated similar compounds with improved drug-like properties. Further research funding enables him to continue the drug development process. His early studies show these marine compounds have the right stuff to begin further clinical stud-ies for drugs to treat colorectal, prostate and metastatic breast cancer, enhance bone regeneration and slow the progres-sion of AlzheimerÂs disease. Q While new research holds promise for sufferers of COPD, healthy lifestyle changes, like quitting smoking, can also help alleviate symptoms.
