Call 561.625.5070 for a physician referral Downtown at the Gardens is set to light up with a little flower power. Thats right, flower power, courtesy of Downtown in Bloom. The annual event, set for April 27-28, will offer displays and inspirational designs from about 40 vendors. This year, one of the things were going to be doing is adding vignettes to the prop-erty that will allow people to get inside the garden and be part of the display,Ž said Kendall Rumsey, marketing director for Downtown at the Gardens. The displays will invite visitors to picture themselves in space such as that, he said. Attendance to the event seems to be steadily growing. Last year, we had about 8,000 people. It was up from the year before, and it just con-tinues to grow and get better every year,Ž Mr. Rumsey said. We try to reach out to the community.Ž A Charity Garden Walk will offer an opportunity for local organizations to raise money throughout the weekend. Each part-nering charity will work with a local design-er to create a 10by 10-foot display. Guests will voteŽ for their favorites all weekend with donations; one dollar equals one vote. At the end of the weekend, Downtown at the Gardens will match up to $1,000 for the organization receiving the most votes and up to $500 for the organization that comes in second. Wines from Whole Foods will be served SNAP! POP! GLUG! For those pressing at front counters here at the McDon-alds on Indiantown Road, at a Starbucks just off Donald Ross, at a Dunkin Donuts on PGA Boulevard and a Seven-Eleven on Northlake and any gas sta-tion and convenience store and fast-food outlet across Palm Beach County for their first jolt of java, coffee lids sound a morning chorus. These three, just bought atop their cups and planted in a cup-holder inside a moving vehicle, might seem ordinary. They arent. Common, sure, but what they offer is mystery. Look closer. Youll find, pressed in the plastic, numbers, notations, warnings, symbols, and myriad designs that turn a simple plastic disk into a gallery of artistic expression. These bas-relief sculptures also have a job to do. In transit, on the commute to school or office or from one job-site to another or back from breakfast or lunch or dinner, at any hour, take-out coffee-cup lids protect and defend and also betray. Two of these three, here, nesting over small coffees on a turn around Jupiter (the city, not the planet), show the first threatening blurps of rebellion, tiny drops welling up through the pinpricks of vent holes.Downtown at the Gardens set to bloom with annual event Juno remembers 9/11A memorial will be built in Juno Beach.

For one thing, the April straits come festooned with anniversaries. For another, at this distance the echoes of history seem to resonate from a single source, a once-upon-a-time that suggests how weakly a mere calendar reflects American progress. These echoes amount to a sum, the sum of our deeds. We are, in large part, what we have done. And we are also what we will do. Those realities are not constrained by a calendar. Let me explain what I mean with a question: Does it matter that Confederate Gen-eral Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox on April 9, 1865; or that American soldiers liberated Buchenwald, one of the Nazis gro-tesque camps of death for Jews on April 10, 1945; or the third Civil Rights Act was signed into law by LBJ to prohibit discrimination in housing, one week after Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, on April 11, 1968; or that the Civil War started on April 12, 1861, the same date President Franklin D. Roosevelt died, in 1945; or that Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14 and died the next morning, on April 15, 1865, the same date that criminals this week, in 2013, exploded two bombs in Boston? Bystanders and participants in the traditional marathon joined public safety profes-sionals within moments to demonstrate the highest standards of compassion and grace under pressure „ on Patriots Day. Does it matter, finally, that the shot heard round the worldŽ beginning the American Revolution was fired on April 19, in the year 1775? The answer is no, of course not. The years seem to contract on themselves and they matter a lot less than the deeds. If you were assigned to create a soundtrack for those momentous April events, youd have to tune it up with a lot of gunfire (timpani drums, perhaps, with the staccato snap-and-rattle of snares). And you could finish it with a piano scale played with a staggering rhythm that comes to a dead halt in mid-octave. Where are we going and how will this end „ this effort to define ourselves as Americans „ the music should ask us? And whether we like it or not, we have to face the music, always. That requires thinking about guns and patriots, which have been so much a part of the April straits, both for good and ill. After all, the history of the country can be said to start with that single musket shot on April 19, fired by somebody weve come to think of as a patriot, a man intent on form-ing a new government of the people, by the people, and for the people. But some of the people seem to have concluded that patriotism in America is only about guns. And furthermore, that if you suggest guns should be limited „ you know, no cruise missiles, no .50 caliber machine guns, no 155 howitzers „ then you define yourself as an American pinko, not an American patriot. Take Wayne LaPierre and co., at the National Rifle Association, headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia right next to Centreville, home of Seung-Hui Cho, the murderer who used pistols with high-capacity magazines to shoot dead 32 people and wound 17 oth-ers on April 16, 2007, at Virginia Tech. Mr. LaPierre, a vice president of the NRA, said that the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun,Ž not long after the Newtown, Conn. massa-cre of 26 people, including 20 children, four months ago. That was a precursor, apparently, to the callous letter from the NRA delivered to the United States Senate (and me) on April 10. It stated firmly that the NRA was against any newly required registering of firearms purchased at gun shows or exchanged between private citizens, and opposed to any limitations on the size of currently available assault weapons or high-capacity magazines. At Newtown, by the way, there were only two survivors. A medic who arrived shortly after the gunfire stopped noted later that there was nothing to do „ nobody to save, nobody even to transport to any hospitals. It was a work-free zone. And why? Because every body was riddled with bullets and destroyed completely. Between three and nine rounds hit each little person or adult. The weapons were so devastating that surviving was not an option for anybody in their way. What that tells me is that Wayne and co. are really businessmen, not rifle men. And theyre in the business not of defend-ing American virtues like Constitutional amendments, but of fattening the bank accounts of corporate commanders who build and sell assault weapons. Almost no one is against the Second Amendment. No one in public life has asked that it be abolished „ or will. No one is interested in taking away our guns.Ž But many are now trying to regulate those guns in order to save lives „ just as people have regulated automobiles by requiring seatbelts, or outlawing the old practice of drinking and driving, or restrict-ing the speed we travel on a highway. No one, however, is suggesting that they take our cars away, any more than our weapons. So now, sliding through the April straits, the music we hear „ our American music „ raises this question, once again: Who are we? We have come down to the crossroads between what we have done, and what we are going to do. Our choice of direction will now answer that question. At the NRA, they call themselves law abiding, they call themselves constitutional-ists, they call themselves the good guys. And mostly they call themselves patriots.Ž A lot of people who are a lot smarter than I am have talked about what it means to be a patriot, so I wont get into it. But one of them, Oscar Wilde, concluded this: Patriotism is the last refuge of scoun-drels.Ž I invite every member of the National Rifle Association to prove him wrong.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYWikiLeaks’ new release: The Kissinger Cables and Bradley ManningWikiLeaks has released a new trove of documents, more than 1.7 million U.S. State Department cables dating from 1973-1976, which they have dubbed The Kissinger Cables,Ž after Henry Kissinger, who in those years served as secretary of state and assistant to the president for national security affairs. One cable includes a transcribed conversation where Kissinger displays remarkable candor: Before the Free-dom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, The illegal we do immedi-ately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer. (laughter) But since the Free-dom of Information Act, Im afraid to say things like that.Ž While the illegal and the unconstitutional may be a laughing matter for Kissinger, who turns 90 next month, it is deadly serious for Pvt. Bradley Manning. After close to three years in prison, at least eight months of which in conditions described by U.N. special rapporteur on torture Juan Ernesto Men-dez as cruel, inhuman and degrading,Ž Manning recently addressed the court at Fort Meade: I believed that if the general public, especially the American public, had access to the information ... this could spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign policy in general, as well as it related to Iraq and Afghanistan.Ž These words of Mannings were released anonymously, in the form of an audio recording made clandestinely, that we broadcast on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour. This was Bradley Manning, in his own voice, in his own words, explaining his actions. He testified about the helicopter gunship video that he released to WikiLeaks, which was later made public under the title Collateral Murder.Ž In stark, grainy black-and-white, it shows the gunship kill 12 men in Baghdad on July 12, 2007, with audio of the helicopter crew mock-ing the victims, celebrating the sense-less murder of the people below, two of whom were employees of the Reuters news agency. Manning said: The most alarming aspect of the video to me, however, was the seemingly delightful bloodlust of the aerial weapons team. They dehuman-ized the individuals they were engaging and seemed to not value human life by referring to them as dead bastards, and congratulating each other on the ability to kill in large numbers.Ž Reuters had sought the video through a Freedom of Information request, but had been denied. So Manning delivered the video, along with hundreds of thou-sands of other classified electronic doc-uments, through the anonymous, secure online submission procedure developed by WikiLeaks. Manning made the larg-est leak of classified documents in U.S. history, and changed the world. The WikiLeaks team gathered at a rented house in Reykjavik, Iceland, to prepare the video for public release. Among those working was Birgitta Jon-sdottir, a member of the Icelandic par-liament. She told me: When I saw the video in February 2010, I was profound-ly moved. I was moved to tears, like many people that watch it. But at the same time, I understood its significance and how it might be able to change our world and make it better.Ž Jonsdottir co-founded the Icelandic Pirate Party, a genuine political party springing up in many, mostly European countries. A lifelong activist, she calls herself a pixel pirate.Ž The Collateral MurderŽ video created a firestorm of press attention when it was first released. One of the soldiers on the ground was Ethan McCord, who rushed to the scene of the slaughter and helped save two children who had been injured in the attack. He suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He recently penned a letter of support for Bradley Manning, writing: The video released by WikiLeaks belongs in the public record. Covering up this incident is a matter deserving of criminal inqui-ry. Whoever revealed it is an American hero in my book.Ž In the three years since Collateral MurderŽ was released in April 2010, WikiLeaks has come under tremendous pressure. Manning faces life in pris-on or possibly even the death penalty. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange spent a year and a half under house arrest in Britain, until he sought refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he has remained since June 2012, fight-ing extradition to Sweden. He fears Sweden could then extradite him to the United States, where a secret grand jury may have already issued a sealed indictment against him. Private details from Jonsdottirs Twitter and four other online accounts have been handed over to U.S. authorities. WikiLeaks latest release, which includes documents already declassi-fied but very difficult to search and obtain, is a testament to the ongoing need for WikiLeaks and similar groups. The revealed documents have sparked controversies around the world, even though they relate to the 1970s. If we had a uniform standard of justice, Nobel laureate Henry Kissinger would be the one on trial, and Bradley Manning would win the Nobel Peace Prize. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONYour kids aren’t your own w t b k w i l amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The TV cable-news network MSNBC runs sermonettes from its anchors dur-ing commercial breaks. They are like public-service announcements illumi-nating the progressive mind, and per-haps none has ever been as revealing and remarkable as the one cut by week-end host Melissa Harris-Perry. Harris-Perry set out to explain what is, by her lights, the failure to invest ade-quately in public education. She located the source of the problem in the insidi-ous idea of parental responsibility for children. Weve always had kind of a private notion of children,Ž she said, in the tone of an anthropologist explaining a strange practice she discovered when out doing far-flung fieldwork. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility.Ž So long as this retrograde conception prevails, according to Harris-Perry, we will never spend enough money on children. We have to break through,Ž she urged, our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families.Ž Her statement wasnt an aside on live television. She didnt misspeak. The spot was shot, produced and aired without, apparently, raising any alarm bells. No one with influence raised his or her hand and said, Should we really broadcast something that sounds so outlandish?Ž The foundation of the Harris-Perry view is that society is a large-scale kib-butz. The title of Hillary Clintons best-seller in the 1990s expressed the same point in comforting folk wisdom: It Takes a Village.Ž As the ultimate private institution, the family is a stubborn obstacle to the great collective effort. Insofar as people invest in their own families, they are holding out on the state and unaccept-ably privileging their own kids over the children of others. These parents are selfish, small-minded and backward. Once its everybodys responsibility,Ž Harris-Perry said of child-rearing, and not just the households, then we start making better investments.Ž This impulse toward the state as uberparent is based on a profound fallacy and a profound truth. The fallacy is that anyone can care about someone elses children as much as his own. The for-mer Texas Republican Sen. Phil Gramm liked to illustrate the hollowness of pro-fessions to the contrary with a story. He told a woman, My educational policies are based on the fact that I care more about my children than you do.Ž She said, No, you dont.Ž Gramm replied, OK: What are their names?Ž The truth is that parents are one of societys most incorrigible sources of inequality. If you have two of them who stay married and are invested in your upbringing, you have hit lifes lottery. You will reap untold benefits denied to children who arent so lucky. That the family is so essential to the well-being of children has to be a constant source of frustration to the egalitarian statist, a reminder of the limits of his power. If the left wants to equalize the investments in children that matter most, it should promote intact families and engaged parents, even if it means embracing shockingly old-fashioned private child-rearing.

PET TALESAdopt me Adult dogs can be perfect matches for many families BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIn recent years weve seen a shift in attitude when it comes to adopting an adult dog. Recycled roversŽ used to be a hard sell,Ž not only because puppies have the cute factorŽ advantage, but also because many people believed adult dogs were less likely than puppies to bond with a new family. Rescue groups, shelters, veterinarians and trainers alike have long argued thats not the case, and the message has got-ten through: Adult dogs are now widely considered a wonderful adoption option, especially for people who arent in a good position to raise a puppy. When choosing an adult dog, however, you need to ask questions and then think about the answers. While expecting to work on some things as your new dog gets used to you is reasonable, you want to make sure that you know what youre getting into when it comes to such things as health, behavior and even shedding. There are no wrong answers, but here are some questions to ask about any dog youre considering adopting: Q What do you know of this dogs history? You may be dealing with a shelter, a rescue volunteer, the dogs original owner or breeder, or a nice person who found a stray. While its certainly pos-sible for a dog found as a stray to be a perfect candidate for rehoming,Ž knowing a dogs history is usu-ally helpful when it comes to predicting his potential future in your home. Q Why is this dog available for adoption? Dogs become available for lots of reasons. Losing our home,Ž divorceŽ and deathŽ dont reflect badly on the dog; bit our daughterŽ should give you pause, at the very least. Listen, too, for what isnt said: He needs more exercise than we can give himŽ may mean a dog with exercise requirements only a marathoner could meet, or it could mean the previ-ous owners really wanted a dog with the exercise requirements of a stuffed animal. When in doubt, ask more questions. Q What behavior problems does this dog have? What health problems? Many things are fixable and worth con-sidering if you honestly believe youll take the time to work with the dog. Remember, too, that some problems dont need anything more than a dose of com-mon sense to fix. Wont stay in the yard,Ž for example, may be easily cured by a decent fence and neutering. As for health, some dogs (like some people) need daily medication for chronic conditions, which might be a problem in some families. Q How is he with children? Other dogs? Cats? Even if you dont have chil-dren, youre going to run into some from time to time. The same is true with other dogs. You can successfully avoid cats if you dont have them, but make certain your pro-spective pet at least tolerates them well if you do share your home with a cat or two. As for dogs with aggression issues, in many cases these can be worked out, but you may need the help of good trainer or behaviorist, plus a dedication of time and money. Love is not enough for a good match. While almost any dog can be successfully rehomed with experienced, patient new owners, dogs with severe problems are usually not good projects for beginners. Youll be happier and bet-ter able to offer your dog a great new home if you take your time to make sure the fit is a good one. Follow your head as well as listen to your heart, and youll be off to a great start on a new life with the adopted dog you finally choose. In recent years weve both taken adult dogs into our homes, including ones with health or behavior problems. Because we knew what we were getting and knew what we could deal with, everything worked out just fine. And it can for you, too. Q An adult dog can’t swear he’ll be the perfect adoption candidate, but if you ask the right questions, he can get pretty close. >> Snoop is a 9-year-old neutered boxer mix. He is sweet and mellow, and likes a slow lifestyle.Snoop and Josie qualify for the Senior to Senior program; adopters 55 and older pay no adoption fee.>> Josie is a 10-year-old spayed domestic.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYIn moments of weakness and imperfection, lids can give way to coffee that sloshes chins and splatters hands, laps, shirts, blouses, with something steamy and stain-y. Improperly applied and man-aged, they can perform the dreaded pop-off, an aerial dance above the cup that opens a hot flood below. Regardless, persons of every stripe will keep coming for them. Most will miss a perkier subplot: disposable coffee cup lids as narrators for the great American story of ingenuity and opportunity, of copy-and-steal, of effort and failure and try-try-again. As design historian (and lid-collector) Phil Patton puts it, Coffee lids show the whole vast machinery of modern culture, material engineering, marketing, adver-tising and design.Ž And, he might add, of consuming and discarding. These seemingly humble lids, architects and lid-collectors Louise Harpman and Scott Specht contend in a much-copied column from the online magazine Cabinet, are avatars of an ever-more-mobile America. The true efflorescence in drinkthrough lid design and production can be traced to the 1980s,Ž they write, when we, as a culture, decided that it was important, even necessary, to be able to walk, or drive, or commute while drink-ing hot liquids.Ž Many lids are made and marketed by giants in the container industry, such as Dixie and Dart and Solo and Sweetheart, others by thin-margin short liners.Ž Best estimates count their distribution in the U.S. at a billion-and-a-half each year, and growing. Here at Dunkin Donuts, just now, a front counterman proffers a small regular coffee „ one cream, one sugar „ in a thick paper cup under a thin plastic lid. In design terms, the lid looks (and acts) pre-historic: a pull-tab that rips up the lids plastic edge unevenly, a concept that dates back to Alan Franks tear-able plastic vented lid of 1967. Phil Patton calls this one the hide or oxhide,Ž because its pattern mimics the stretched skin of an animal. Not far away, at McDonalds, a small black coffee in a hard Styrofoam cup showcases a more revolutionary lid, of a variety called the Dome, with an outer rim snapping onto the cup mouth and an inner raised disk tilting up to the drinker. Properly secured, it seems almost fail-safe and very handy: no tearing, just an upraised tab on the very top, easily thumbed up with one hand (creating a generous opening for the guzzle) and pushed into a small well, where it lodges with a secure click. Besides a small downward pinprick (as a vent), it shows two „ DECAF and OTHER „ and a little triangle with an exclamation point followed, in English and Spanish, by CAUTION IM HOT. McDonalds had more reason than most to issue the warning and to invent a better lid. In 1992, retired clerk and grandmother Stella Liebeck rode through one of their drive-thrus in Albuquerque with her grandson at the wheel and tried to pull the fairly primitive white lid off her cup of coffee. She was holding it between her knees, pulling the far edge of the lid toward her. The lid popped off, and hot coffee spilled between her legs, sending her to the hospital for eight days with burns that demanded skin grafts and abrasion. When McDonalds offered compensation of only $800 and refused other offers to settle, she sued for an amount to cover her medical bills; famously, the jury awarded her $20,000 for that and punitive damages of $2.7 million, about the profit from two days of coffee sales at McDonalds nationwide (the award was eventually reduced, and the parties settled for something less than $600,000). A national debate ensued about inflated damage awards and also about scalding hot coffee. For takeout cup makers and vendors, better design with a social conscience jumped onto the radar. At Starbucks, another kind of social conscience shows. So does the practical side. Even in the midst nationally of his companys gentle encouragement „ in LIDSFrom page 1 Jack Clements designs the Solo Traveler, created a well for lips and promoted drinking from the lid, not the cup; its dome design lifted the face away from the heat and made room for the foamy cream of lattes and other gourmet coffee s, and a button-andwell anchored the loose opener.

Designed by Jack Clements in 1986, the Solo Traveler created a well for lips and promoted drinking from the lid, not the cup; its dome design lifted the face away from the heat and made room for the foamy cream of lattes and other gourmet coffees, and a butt on-and-well anchored the loose opener. Curator Paola Antonelli thought so much of the Solo Traveler that she included it among Humble Masterpiec-esŽ in her 2004 show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, alongside Post-It notes, paperclips and Band-Aids. This carries the throwaway lid into art and engineering, into problem-solving, into the vast and sometimes contentious arena of patents and dreams of fame and wealth, into the heroic lunacy of human creation. Coffee cup lids pose a set of design concerns detailed by Harpman and Specht: mouth comfort, splash reduc-tion, friction fit, mating engagement and one-handed activation,Ž a list that also draws a wink at coffees almost erotic stimulation. In the chemistry between coffee lids and consumers, most users see some-thing more basic. People want their throwaway cups to imitate the china or ceramic kind. They want their coffee at sipping distance, in a nice even flow, directly from the vessel. They also want it ON THE GO. Design historian Phil Patton says this: As early as (18th century French writer Alexis) De Toqueville, foreign observers noted our national obsessions with mobility and caffeine.Ž Take-out cups and lids, he says, promote both. But why so many kinds „ especially the white flat ones „ that look so much alike? Well, Mr. Patton says, the closer you look, the more differences you see. And they arent all super-ficial. The greater force that feeds the invention is improvement. More secure, betterbalanced, easier-to-han-dle or to fit in a vehicles cup-holder, better flow in the sipping, any tiny advance becomes an excuse for a fresh design, a possible patent or trademark, an aggressive sales or advertising cam-paign. A few stand out.Architects Harpman and Specht and Mr. Patton and writer Nicola Twilley showcase some of the best in their col-lections and writing. They start with Roy Irvin Stubblefields Cap for Drinking Glasses,Ž patented in 1935. In the 70s, Patrick T. Boyle added the pre-scored tear-tab, and, in 1975, Walter Elfert and James Scruggs pioneered the fold-back attachable tab, the peel-and-lock.Ž What the evolving cup lid has abetted, both admirers and critics suggest, is an increasingly faster-paced, chase-about, gas-burning and errand-running and suburban scattershot culture, based as much as anything on the movement, consump-tion and disposal of material things. Though global, a mantra of invent-and-make-and-get-and-use-and-dispose might seem particularly American. Take-out coffee and the mentality it fuels may have spread worldwide, in the mix of trade and cultures, but the documenters like to point out that some civilizations still dont get it. Harpman and Specht tell of a friend who went looking for a French styleŽ coffee lid in Paris. No luck. On her last day,Ž they relate, she went to a caf and said, in her halting French, that she would like her coffee emporter, or to go. The waitress shrugged in response and gave her the coffee in a porcelain cup. Go with it, she said, but bring back the cup.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOLid patents require problem-solving.

Juno Beach chooses design with hearts to remember 9/11 BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.comSept. 11, 2001.It is a day that no one can forget.And because no one can forget, communities across the nation have created monuments to that terrible day in which thousands died at the hands of terror-ists. Juno Beach is no exception.The Town Council voted April 10 to select West Palm Beach artist Mark Fullers design for the Juno Beach Reflection on 9/11Ž to be built at Town Center, at Ocean Drive and Celestial Way. It was one of two design proposals submitted. Mr. Fullers design calls for a reflective monument that incorporates the shape of a heart. Four birds, which represent the four airplanes used in the attacks, soar heav-enward through the heart, reminding viewers of the lives that were lost on those planes. The base of the piece is reminiscent of the World Trade Centers twin towers. I was impressed with his symbolism, and his reference to things that were components of the event and the structure,Ž Juno Beach Vice Mayor Bill Greene said of Mr. Fullers design. The reflective qualities of the steel shell of the piece also were attractive to Vice Mayor Greene, a metallurgical engineer by profession who has lived in Juno Beach since 1988. There were practical reasons for selecting this design. Its a very small site and I think what Mark proposed will fit best at this site,Ž said council member Jim Lyons. The other design proposal, by artist Sue Lampert, incorporat-ed a celestial sphere that integrated an existing art project on the site, and reminded visitors of the towns ties to the old Celestial Railroad. The projects cost was capped by the town at $50,000; it will be paid for with private donations. But regardless of the financial cost, the sculpture will offer a place of reflec-tion for local people with ties that day to New York and Boston. So many people are from the Northeast in Juno Beach,Ž said Mr. Lyons. Theyre from the New York, New Jer-sey, Massachusetts area. I think they all have been affected in some way.Ž According to the town, local citizens lost loved ones in terrorist attacks, were stranded far from home in the aftermath of the attacks or aided in rescue efforts. This monument will remind people of not only what was lost, but Americas resilience in the face of a national trag-edy. Its made to be unifying and uplifting, and thats a good thing for a com-munity to be focusing on,Ž said Vice Mayor Greene. As you know, were a small and patriotic proud town. Thats the American way. ƒ Thats what makes up the backbone of our community.Ž Q A10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY IMAGE The 9/11 memorial design, by West Palm Beach artist Mark Fuller, incorporates a heart and four birds representing the four airplanes.

Q Palm Beach Gardens hospital offers new heart procedure SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is now offering Transcatheter Aortic Valve replacement (TAVR), which the hospital said is a revolutionary new heart procedure. TAVR is an advanced minimally invasive treatment option for patients suf-fering from severe aortic stenosis, the hospital said in a prepared state-ment. Some patients may not be candi-dates for traditional treatments, such as open-heart surgery. The TAVR proce-dure offers them a new option. “At The Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, we were the first hospital in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast to perform open-heart surgery, so it is certainly fitting that our hospital and physicians would bring the TAVR procedure to our com-munity,” said Chief Executive Officer of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Larry Coomes. “Our hospital has always been on the forefront for cardiac care and we want to offer patients, who have been considered inoperable or high risk, new hope with the TAVR procedure.” Severe aortic stenosis is a very serious heart condition. Many patients are not treated because they are deemed inop-erable for surgery, have not received a definitive diagnosis or because they delay or decline the procedure for a variety of reasons. Patients who do not receive an aortic valve replacement (AVR) have no effective, long-term treatment option to prevent or delay their disease progression. Without it, severe symptomatic aortic stenosis is life-threatening — studies indicate that 50 percent of patients will not survive more than an average of two years after the onset of symptoms. The Edwards SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a therapy for patients with severe symp-tomatic native aortic valve stenosis who have been determined by a heart team, which includes an experienced cardiac surgeon and cardiologist, to be inoperable or high risk for open-chest surgery to replace their diseased aortic heart valve. Patients who are candidates for this procedure must not have other co-existing conditions that would prevent them from experiencing the expected benefit from fixing their aortic stenosis. This procedure enables the placement of a balloon-expandable heart valve into the body with a tube-based delivery sys-tem (catheter). The valve is designed to replace a patient’s diseased native aor-tic valve without traditional open-chest surgery and while the heart continues to beat — avoiding the need to stop the patient’s heart and connect them to a heart-lung machine which temporarily takes over the function of the heart and the patient’s breathing during surgery (cardiopulmonary bypass). For both inoperable and high-risk patients, the valve is approved to be delivered with the RetroFlex 3 Deliv-ery System through an artery accessed through an incision in the leg (trans-femoral procedure). For high-risk patients who do not have appropriate access through their leg artery, the valve is approved to be delivered with the Ascendra Delivery System via an inci-sion between the ribs and then through the bottom end of the heart called the apex (transapical procedure).

Her daughters tone was too sweet and too friendly. Jana asked Sandra how the Ladys Day golf tournament went. Jana never showed any interest in her mothers golf or social activities. Not one iota. Jana cut right to the chase. She asked Sandra if she would fly from Florida to New Jersey for a week to baby-sit. These were the worst possible dates Jana could have requested. When Sandra asked if Janas back-up babysitter might be available to fill in, an argument erupted. Jana blasted her mother. You are the most selfish, heartless mother out there. All that matters to you is your golf, bridge and country club friends.Ž Janas accusations cut Sandra to the core. Her head was pounding. Thats not true. You and your family are the most important thing in the world to me. Dont your dare call me selfish. I worked my whole life. I was always there for you. If I want to enjoy myself at this stage I shouldnt have to apologize to anyone.Ž The harder Sandra tried to defend her position, the angrier her daughter became. Some of us are blessed to have comfortable, mature, mutually respectful relationships with our children. Others of us may wince knowingly at the above story because overwhelming feelings of hurt, frustration and guilt have perme-ated our relationships, even as our chil-dren mature and have families of their own. We may feel so guilty and upset that the relationships have become so contentious that we lose sight of whats fair and appropriate. Many of us have difficulty defining the role we seek to have in our childrens lives „ determining whats healthy and mutually beneficial „ and at what expense. Stepping back to consider why these important relationships may have careened off balance and what our true role is in the mix can be complicated and confusing. Some of us mistakenly believe its our duty to be at our childrens beck and call. We may be inclined to drop any-thing in our lives, to our own detriment, when our adult children ask for assis-tance. We worry that saying noŽ may be our undoing. And, sadly, in the process we may undermine our childrens matu-rity and self-reliance. But, lets be clear. Much of the time, we elect to be with our children and grandchildren because these relation-ships are cherished bonds we truly enjoy. Knowing we make a true difference in their lives is a great source of gratifica-tion and pride. Upon retirement, many of us look forward to finally having the time to enjoy our extended families in ways we might not have when we were overextended with work and household responsibilities. We may elect to cancel or rearrange activities because family responsibilities take a higher priority. But what happens when we feel ambivalent and insecure about the role we play in our childrens lives? What if our chil-dren are critical and blame us for letting them down despite our perceived best efforts? We may have spent a lifetime evaluating their moods and accomplish-ments as a measure of our worth. Under-standably, we may become defensive in the face of their upset. If they are angry or disagree with us, somehow, we may believe we have failed as parents. We may have different levels of comfort about speaking up when we know we may be disappointing loved ones. We should make decisions by choice, not because were told whats expected of us. Importantly, we should consider the way we are treated by loved ones. Its not unreasonable to expect appreciation and a heartfelt thank youŽ from those we love. In the example ab ove, S andra was so consumed by guilt that she tolerated abusive behavior; defending herself to no avail. The conflict between the two of them was clearly not a new one. Its not uncommon for retirees to question the value of their leisure activi-ties after they have left a rewarding career. Sandra may be ambivalent about the importance of how she spends her time post-retirement. When Jana treats her mothers retired life with disdain, she has clearly triggered a sensitive sore spot in her mothers psyche. When the two women are locked in a critical, escalating spiral of emotion, they miss an important opportunity to remain close and to support each other at transitional times of their lives. They end up arguing about superficialities and lose the chance to speak openly about important concerns and fears. What might have happened had Sandra stepped away from the animosity and said to her daughter in a very clear way? Jana, you and your family are very important to me. Retirement has been a very complicated time for me, and Im doing my best to find activities and friendships that feel gratifying. I can imagine you have feelings if my choices get in the way of shared family time. However, when we get into these angry arguments its hard for me to think clear-ly and to remain supportive.Ž Clearly, Sandra and Jana have been caught up in a negative cycle that has kept them both feeling misunderstood and frustrated. If Sandra asserts she is unwilling to remain in these hurtful con-versations, she will have taken an impor-tant step to clarify a boundary of accept-able behavior. But more importantly, if she and her daughter approach each other non-defensively, and without judg-ment, they may open channels to sharing more personal concerns, and to carving a richer, more rewarding bond.

The same concept applies to strokes; stroke patients who receive treatment in the first hour have the best chance for surviving and preventing disability Dr. Donald Trunkey, an academic trauma surgeon, calls this the Three R Rule: Getting the right patient to the right place at the right time.Ž This means that more severely injured patients may be taken past a hospital with an emergency department to reach a trauma or stroke center. In northern Palm Beach County, St. Marys Medical Center proudly offers a higher level of emergent care. Since 1991, St. Marys Medical Center has served as a Florida Department of Health Level II Trauma Center, a state-designated Pediatric Trauma Referral Center and a state-designated Brain and Spinal Cord Acute Care Injury Center. With more than 20 years of experience as a trauma center, St. Marys has brought together experts in nursing, trauma surgery, neurosurgery, ortho-pedic surgery and other specialties to manage the most complicated injuries. In addition to the Trauma Center, St. Marys Medical center is one of the 21 hospitals in Florida, and one of only two in Palm Beach County, designated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Florida Agency of Healthcare Admin-istration. What is a Trauma Center?Trauma centers have the specially trained medical personnel along with advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment needed to treat people with the most severe injuries. Trauma centers are classified by the level of care they provide: Level IV (lowest) to Level I (highest). Both Level I and Level II trauma centers offer the immediate availability of trauma surgeons, anesthesiologists, physician specialists, nurses, and resuscitation equipment that are needed to treat critically injured patients. Advanced Care: TraumaTwenty-four hours a day, as many as 16 medical staff specialties must be available within the hospital or on-call and able to reach the hospital within a certain timeframe. These specialties may include: € Trauma surgery€ Anesthesiology€ Orthopedic surgery€ Thoracic (chest) surgery€ Neurosurgery€ Ophthalmology€ Cardiac surgery€ Critical care medicine€ Radiology These physicians complete trauma education and other continuing educa-tion programs. Nurses and other health care personnel in a trauma center also receive advanced training to care for the most critically injured patients. Hospitals with trauma center designations also offer advanced surgical capabilities and critical care units that provide constant treatment and moni-toring of severely injured patients. The Trauma Center at St. Marys takes pride in its Trauma After-Care Clinic, providing specialized care with a dedicated team of trauma surgeons, nurse practitioners, and registered nurs-es. The patients are followed in the trauma clinic until they reach maximum medical improvement, and are released from care by the trauma surgeon. Advanced Care: StrokeThe multidisciplinary team at the Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Marys has received specialized training in acute and ongoing management of stroke patient and caregiver needs. The team is comprised of interventional neurologist, ER physicians; ICU, Step Down Unit, telemetry and rehab, nursing, lab, nutrition, pharmacy, phy-sicial, occupational and speech therapy, quality; radiology and respiratory; and special procedures. The stroke team strives to provide quality care in the management of stroke patients throughout the continu-um of care along with patient and family education for management of secondary risk factors and stroke prevention. The Comprehensive Stroke and Trauma Centers at St. Marys are two of many critical services the hospital has added over the course of its 75-year his-tory. Although more than seven decades have passed, St. Marys vision is still the same. The hospital looks forward to growing and working to keep St. Marys Medical Center one of the best health-care facilities in South Florida.

We all want our kids to grow up and maintain fiscal security. There are at least two things that all parents should do in order to ensure that our children can succeed financially. First, parents need to train their children in money attitudes, values, behaviors and skills. Second, parents can make appropriate arrangements for the disposition of their estate and gifting to adult children. These money issues are bookends, as the first issue applies to parenting in the early years of childrens lives and the latter issue applies to parent-ing when children are adults. In both instances, the parent is at the helm and making decisions of great import. Priorities in child rearing might include raising independent children with positive characters and healthy bodies who are on lifelong paths, using their talents to become productive members of a family and society. Your unique list of child rearing goals might be more extensive and might include spiritual formation as the number one priority. If those generic goals resonate as true, then where does money fit into the equation? While it is integral in accomplishing each of the child-rear-ing goals, money is frequently only indirectly addressed by parents in the years before high school graduation. It is more explicitly addressed after high school graduation, when getting a job, going to college or tandem work/college are steps that very much force a childs transition into the money world. When children are young (in formative years before the ages of 8 to 10), they observe parental actions and either adopt them as their own or, to varying degrees, reject parental behaviors. It is generally not wise for parents to expect healthy money behaviors in children unless they have demonstrated the same healthy behav-iors they wish to see (e.g. strong work ethic, accountability, wise investing, saving for college education, saving for retirement, charitable giving, main-taining household records, reasonable personal consumption, etc.). Parents with children still at sweet spot ages (i.e., when parents coun-sel is not summarily dismissed) com-mit large amounts of time to teach-ing skills like driving, cooking, play-ing sports, etc. Why not add money training to that must-learn list? Then, money training would be elevated from peripheral and incidental to important and intentional. Beyond a specific set of money skills that parents should impart, par-ents can make talking about money issues a safeŽ experience, a learning experience, thus enabling their chil-dren to, one day, have the same types of positive money conversations with their spouse, business partners, room-mates, etc. So even if you cant teach all the money skills that your child needs, you can still make the topic of money positive rather than negative. Even if a parent works at teaching fiscal prudence, theres no guarantee his child will follow his lead. Teenage and early adult years often bring kids into rebellion or know-it-all status. Regardless, the parent will have ful-filled his or her role to teach respon-sible money behavior. Though a child strays, it might be that the child will, one day, about-face and embrace child-hood training. Another critical issue and responsibility that falls on parents at a time when children are generally consid-ered to be adults is deciding when to cut off financial support and gifting to children while the parents are alive and how to dispose of their estate upon their death. It is normative in our society for parental support to end or be great-ly diminished after education of the child, either post high school or col-lege. However, there is an alternative to that post-education jettison into financial independence. Parents could require their children to contribute to their expenses by working partor full-time during their school years, especially their college years. These working children might gain greater self-reliance/self-confidence and live-out good money behaviors, as a dollar earned is an entirely different than a dollar received as a gift. Some parents prefer to control their children even in adulthood, using money to maintain this control. Others set self-reliance and financial indepen-dence as goals for children and they know they must let their children toil, fail, fret and suffer to reach these goals. If a childs journey becomes too emo-tionally straining, parents often move into a role of helpingŽ their adult chil-dren, which becomes helpŽ at every opportunity. Pretty soon, children run to parents when times get tough. Inheritances are an enormous subject to be covered in greater depth at a later time. One aspect, relevant to chil-dren becoming financially indepen-dent is preparing your child for han-dling an inheritance as well as abstain-ing in all or in part from disclosing your inheritance plans for them so that they are forced to develop financially successful and independent lives. If you do promise the entirety of your estate to your children, then be prepared for them to feel it is their de facto entitlement. Such promis-es might also translate into children assessing your retirement spending, your giving to a spouse in a re-mar-riage, your need to gift to them prior to death, etc. Money training begins at an early age and responsible parents will find that they are still training their chil-dren even in their sunset years. These are my opinions offered as a platform for you (and your spouse) to consider. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA, is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems, 239-571-8896.

MONEY & INVESTINGTrain your children early about money jeannette SHOWALTER CFA showalter@ww fsyst ems.com Billions of dollars set to transfer to Florida charities in coming decadeCommunity foundations are a national network of public charities about to come of age. A gigantic transfer of wealth is underway that creates an unprecedented opportunity to build permanent sources for charitable giv-ing for thousands of communities. The timing is fortuitous. The decimation of grant capital from among public and private sources has prompted a scramble for new sources of giving. But this windfall of wealth is more than a one-time deal: It is an opportunity to establish a new source of giving that is locally controlled, benefits hometown charities, and provides revenue streams in perpetuity to address changing chari-table needs. Because community foun-dations are all about philanthropy loyal to geographic place, they are positioned to help communities take care of their own. Thats especially important now when so many charities are caught between a rock and a hard place because of the declining resources and rising needs. Its taken almost a century for the ger-mination of this hometown capacity to come into full flower. It all began in Cleveland in 1914 with the founding of the Cleveland Foundation by Frederick Goff. Goffs idea caught on swiftly in major urban areas. But it took another 60 years before community foundations took root on the Main Streets of small towns. People assumed there wasnt enough wealth in low centers of popu-lation to make a community foundation worthwhile. The alternative became the annual fund drive. Contributions were galvanized and multiplied community-wide to create a pot of money to distrib-ute among charities serving local needs. But running in place year after year has diminishing returns. Incentives remained high to expand the philan-thropic menu for donors and establish permanent sources of funding in Amer-icas smaller communities. Community foundations were overwhelmingly the strategy of choice. These public chari-ties can, over time, aggregate a deep well of charitable capital to focus on specific communities of place and inter-est. Their appeal is undeniable. Today, there are more than 700 community foundations nationwide, and about 30 scattered throughout the state of Florida. Many of these institu-tions define their service across mul-tiple counties so their expanse is broad enough to accommodate an economy of scale that can provide communities the tools they need to serve donors who want to give back, give locally, and most importantly, leave a permanent legacy for the benefit of the communities they love. This is especially important now because of the immense transfer of wealth already begun that some are estimating could reach as much as $322 billion in the next 10 years. The source of this manna is not limited to the usual suspects located in Floridas high wealth conclaves „ Palm Beach, Wellington, Boca Raton, Fisher Island and beyond. It also includes the major holdings of timberland, mining and agribusiness interests spread broadly across the state that will also change hands. Florida Philanthropic Network (FPN), a statewide membership network of corporate giving programs, family foun-dations, independent foundations and nearly all of the states community foundations, will soon release the first state-wide assessment of this tsunami of wealth changing hands over the next 50 years. Their goal is to alert and edu-cate the states nonprofits so they get ready to take advantage of this literal, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. FPNs community foundation membership is at the vanguard of FPNs communica-tions effort to locally disseminate the research because community founda-tions are close to the ground and the nonprofits and donors that are at the core of any philanthropic partnership. FPNs work on this study began almost two years ago, at which time I served as the chair of FPNs commu-nity foundation leadership team. Several community foundations jointly funded the FPN project with the expectation that the data could be a well-spring for educating communities about the importance of philanthropy and chari-table giving to the states future; and to build awareness within the charitable sector of this huge opportunity. So how huge is hugeŽ? Consider this: The Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, the agency commis-sioned by FPN to do the research, fore-casts a wealth transfer scenario totaling about $75 trillion in the United States from 2010 through 2060. If a givebackŽ goal was achieved during that time of only 5 percent of the total, when fully capitalized, $3.8 trillion in new community endowments would generate $200 billion annually in new grant distributions nationwide. At this scale, even a small piece ends up look-ing like an overflowing plateful. When the charitable sector is at the table and hungry for support, thats welcome news.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYLeafy madness reflected in 1800s artworkMost people have heard about the bout of TulipmaniaŽ that spread through the Netherlands in the 17th century, but few know about Pteridomania,Ž or fern mad-ness. In the 19th century, ferns were part of a popular health regimen. People would go into the woods to hunt for ferns or to study nature. It was good exercise for body and soul. People from all levels of society joined in searching for new variet-ies of ferns they could record, plant or dry and put in albums. The many varieties of ferns were soon featured on porcelains and iron garden furniture, and in paint-ings and interior decors. Green majolica plates shaped like fern leaves, iron bench-es by Coalbrookdale and childrens toy porcelain dishes by Ridgways were deco-rated with ferns. The madness continued into the 1880s, but even today ferns are popular house and garden plants. More than 10 varieties are offered in new mail-order garden catalogs, and even more can be found in nurseries in cities with a fern-friendly climate. It would be easy to find decorative examples of Pteridomania and form a collection today.Q: Im 92 years old and am trying to get rid of some old possessions. A copy of the April 20, 1865, Philadelphia Inquirer has been in my family for ages. The front page has several articles about President Abra-ham Lincolns funeral. There are drawings (not photographs) of the funeral car and coffin. Id like to sell it but dont know the value. Can you help?A: Newspapers covering the death of President Lin-coln are collectible. The value of old newspapers var-ies, depending on the importance of the historical event covered as well as condition and rarity. A front-page article with graphic art is more important than articles on inside pages or those with-out pictures. Before photography was commonly used, illustra-tions were made from woodcuts. Some newspapers that are old but dont cover significant events sell for under $10, while newer papers covering important events can sell for hundreds of dollars. Old news-papers become yellow and crumble if not stored properly, but newspapers printed on paper made from rag linen, common before 1876, dont deteriorate as quickly as those made on modern paper. Newspapers should be stored flat and away from light, heat and moisture. Dont store them in the attic or basement. Newspapers with stories about Lincoln have sold in recent years for $10 to a few hundred dollars, depending on condition and content.Q: I was given an antique secretary, but the desk section is locked and I have no key. How can I open it without ruining the lock? A: Dont try to pick the lock. Call a few profes-sional locksmiths and find one who is comfortable working with an antique lock. You will find someone who can open it safely. Q: My old creamer is marked with the outline of what looks like Ohio and the words Leigh Ware by Leigh Potters, Inc., U.S.A.Ž inside. Underneath that it reads, Patent applied for, warranted 22K gold.Ž Is this worth anything? A: Leigh Potters was in business in Alliance, Ohio, from 1926 to 1931. The com-panys mark is outlined by the shape of the state of Ohio. Leigh Potters made dinner-ware, kitchenware and decorative art ware. Your creamer is part of a set of dishes and has a low value if its not partnered with the sugar bowl. Price: under $20. Q: Can you give me any information about a John BullŽ chess set made in India? The elaborate carved ivory pieces are Brit-ish soldiers versus Indian Raj soldiers. I never see them for sale on the Internet.A: Sets like yours usually are referred to as John CompanyŽ sets because that was the nickname for the British East India Co. The origins of the game of chess can be traced to India before the sixth century, and the game continues to be very popu-lar there. During the British Raj (British rule) from 1858 to 1947, many sets with ivory pieces „ some elaborate and some simple „ were made. The value of yours depends on how elaborately it was carved and what condition the pieces are in. Sets that predate 1989 can sell for very high prices. Thats the year a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory was implemented. But you wont see the sets for sale on eBay. It will not allow the sale of any ivory on its site. If you want to sell, contact a reputable auction house that sells on land.Tip: For best results, schedule your house sale at the beginning or middle of the month (near paydays), but not during holiday weekends.

At the same time, the Cana-dian dollar is trading nearly 10 percent above fair value versus the U.S. dollar, arming snowbird shoppers with extra buying power.ŽReported findingsQ There is growing demand for from foreign buyers, most notably Canadians. Q Canada is Floridas No. 1 source of foreign tourists and foreign buy-ers of real estate. In 2010, Canadians accounted for 36 percent of all real estate purchases by foreigners. Q More than 500,000 Canadians currently own property in Florida. Q A BMO report from 2012 found 16 percent of Canadians would consider buying a home south of the border. Q Of those considering property in the U.S. in 2012, 56 percent would do so to gain a vacation or secondary property; 44 percent cited affordability as a motivation; 29 percent viewed a U.S. home purchase as a long-term investment.Where they’re buyingThe report outlines the key geographies in Florida where Canadians currently own real estate, based on a study by the National Association of Realtors. They include: Q Sarasota-Bradenton-Venice (17 percent) Q Orlando-Kissimmee (13 percent) Q Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Palm Beach (13 percent) Q Cape Coral-Fort Myers (9 per-cent) Q Tampa-St. Petersburg (9 percent) Q Naples-Marco Island (9 percent) Q Other areas (30 percent) Q

Networking during the slow summer results in an easy, multi-million dollar sale Referrals in any business are very important. They create a successful environment for anyone trying to grow and maintain their business. In real estate, it is not just referrals from cli-ents, but relationships with other bro-kers within the community and other areas are just as important. When the market slows down in the late summer months, I have traveled to other areas to visit certain proper-ties and take advantage of networking with other realtors in that area. Last summer I spent some time in South Beach getting to know a few brokers and condominium communities such as the St. Regis and One South Ocean. At the time, the market was having an influx of Brazilian and Mexican clients who were purchasing. A group of us from my office at Fite Shavell & Associates toured the buildings and spent the day with the brokers who represented the developers. Since that time, the Brazilian clients have been even more prevalent in Miami and are now beginning to look farther north in Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches. Three weeks ago I received a call from one of the brokers I met with in Miami. We had kept in touch over the season with updates on the market and happenings in Palm Beach and Miami. She said she had a Brazilian client looking for an area that was not as busy as Miami and wanted a sense of community with amenities. They would be coming in town on a Friday, leaving on Sunday and were interested in buying a prop-erty for up to $4 million. Looking forward to it, I selected eight homes in three different areas to show them and previewed the properties prior to their arrival. I met them at the Breakers Hotel on Friday morning and we drove directly to the first community. On the way, they explained to me that they had a very large extended fam-ily and would need several areas to accommodate all guests and fam-ily members for the three to six months they would be spending in the area. We toured the property and they viewed several homes at different price points. We then toured the amenities and ate lunch. During lunch, the buyers relayed to me that they loved the community but none of the homes that were available had enough space in their price point to accommodate their family and they way they entertain. I recalled when we were viewing the homes that there was a large home with five bedrooms they really seemed to like and then a smaller home with three bedrooms next door that was also avail-able. They did not see the smaller home, so after lunch we went and looked at both the smaller and larger home next door to one another. They decided that they would purchase both homes „ one for themselves and the other for their guests. This way, the guests were far enough away but still close to be able to enjoy one anothers company. This worked so well that we never even looked at the other communities. We went back to the sales center, which had both homes for sale fully furnished, ready to move in. Their offer was accepted by Sunday and they will be closing at the end of May. They were able to negotiate a better deal, as well, since it will be a cash transaction and they purchased the two homes from one builder with a total sales price of just more than $4,500,000. This almost seemed too easy. A family spends one morning looking at homes, purchases two and will be closing in six weeks. But this is what happened and the family is extremely pleased. The profile of the typical Brazilian buyer is somewhat different from the buyers I had. Sixty percent of Brazilian buyers want to be in a city and purchase a condominium. My buyers are similar to most as 80 percent of Brazilian buyers pay cash and spend three to six months of the year in the home. Most Brazilians buying in South Florida are buying in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Had I not made the connection to the Miami brokers, I would have never met this client. I am hoping that this will be a continued rela-tionship with continued success. Q „ Heather Purucker Bretzlaff is a broker and Realtor Associate at Fite Shavell & Associates.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe benefits of membershipYears ago I dated a man who loved Costco, the mega-retailer of bulk food and discounted merchandise. This man was passionate about everything in the store. He adored the giant bags of cof-fee, the discount prescriptions, the low-rate designer eyewear. He delighted in the bottles of wine that cost $2 less than at the grocery store, and he was over-joyed at the cornucopia of free samples that greeted his every visit. But more than anything, he loved the food court. He adored the fact that he could buy lunch for less than $5 and reveled in the good value of the yogurt cups and iced coffee drinks, the slices of pizza and jumbo hot dogs. He even loved the churros. This man and I have since parted ways, but I think of him every time I have the chance to shop at a Costco. Like this week, when I stopped in to check out a luggage set. Most days my lifestyle doesnt lend itself to 10-pound packages of grapes or gallon-sized tubs of salad dressing. I do well to make it through a regular weeks worth of groceries. But Costco lured me in with a coupon „ like that long-ago boyfriend, I also love a good deal „ and I found myself browsing the aisles for longer than I intended. By the time I finished, I needed a snack. Thats how I found myself in the Costco food court with a churro and a Coke, where I made a fascinating dis-covery. One of the complaints I frequently hear about dating „ in general, but it seems endemic to our area „ is that women never know where the men are. We go to bars, to nightclubs, to concerts. We attend book readings and visit museums. We volunteer at chari-table organizations. And not once do we meet a single man, let alone an eligible bachelor. Where are they hiding?Ž women ask me. I know theyre here somewhere.Ž I always shake my head.I dont know,Ž I say. I just dont know.Ž Well, now I know.Theyre at Costco.As I ate my snack, I noticed the tables in the food court filling up with single men. At a table close to the wall, a man sat down with a slice of pepperoni pizza. He took sips of his 59-cent fountain soda before starting in. A few minutes later, another man stopped at the toppings station and loaded up his hot dog. He took a table in the middle of the court. Not long after, a third man arrived and took a seat. All three ate with the singu-lar concentration of men eating alone. From my table, I discreetly checked for wedding rings. Not one of them wore one. And then a thought occurred to me: Of course this is where sin-gle men eat. The foods affordable and bachelor-friendly; the open picnic tables and steady shopping traffic make eating alone palatable. How could we have missed this? I laughed to myself as I finished eating. All that time wasted looking for men in places that seemed obvious to women. We never once considered looking in a place that was obvious to men. Q „ Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe musical is based on the 1990s film about drag performers who take a road trip in a bus named Priscilla across the Australian Outback to perform. Classic songs by ABBA and other disco classics fill the soundtrack, but the story is solidly Down Under. I think theres something about the Australian aesthetic. I just feel like theres this great Australian aesthetic thats just sort of rambling and is over the top. Its got a quality to it thats com-pletely non-formulaic and thats part of its charm. It doesnt follow any of the formulas and you just sort of go along for the ride,Ž Mr. McCollum said. The Australian creative team was very, very adamant that it remain in a dis-tinctly Australian aesthetic in the show as well.Ž It can be a challenge to talk about creating those characters. Case in point: the roles of Tick/Mitzi in Priscilla.Ž I get so close to my characters its hard to talk objectively about them. Hes the protagonist. He sparks the journey but not out of his own impetus. He is married and is closeted about that,Ž he said. But the rest of his friends do not know that he has had a wife and son, and who he plans to see. Hes living a life of a bunch of layers of illusion. That is characterized in the drag performances. Its in his alter ego where he feels absolved of all his responsibilities,Ž Mr. McCollum said. Summing that up?In a nutshell, hes a father, hes a husband, hes a drag queen. Theres a lot going on. The impetus of the show is for him to meet his son. He sort of comes out about it about half-way through the show. Theyre driving on the bus and they dont know until they get there that he has the son,Ž he said. It sticks very closely to the film. If you like the film, I think youre going to love the musical.Ž He certainly loved the movie.I watched the film at a very seminal point in my adolescence. I was 14 or 15 when it came out. I remember just being blown away. It was the same sort of thing for me as Torch Song Trilogy. It came out much earlier, but I watched it about that same time. Priscilla really is such a gritty little indie film about these radical outsiders finding a place of belonging in the most unlikely places,Ž he said. That was important in the development of a young Wade McCollum. It has universal appeal. I think everyone feels on some level that theyre an outsider. I loved that about the film and it helped me as a kid embrace what I deemed the strangeness of me,Ž he said. By the time PriscillaŽ comes to the Kravis, the show will have been on tour nearly four months. Speaking of adventures. Ive never done a tour before, so its my first time doing one of these big tours. Its an incredible show to be tour-ing with because its about a road trip. And its a road trip about a road trip. Its really a blast, and luckily our cast is close and we all like each other,Ž he said. Thats a good thing.Theres a lot of close quarters on the bus and backstage,Ž he said. Its a really fun show to travel with. Its a like a big acid drag queen circuit show.Ž It translates into fun.Im having a blast. I mean, this kind of opportunity doesnt come along every day. You get to play a character who is rich and interesting for a piece of pop musical theater and sing great songs that have nostalgia for people and have resonance in the show. Its a rare treat,Ž he said. Audiences „ and performers „ are guaranteed to laugh. Sometimes Im backstage and you look around you and theres paintbrush-es, and the costumes are so whimsical and outrageous. Youd have to try really hard not to have a good time because its just overtly funny,Ž he said. Q It used to be 300 shows a year,Ž Mr. DiN izio says. But whether its 50 shows or 300, those shows are what the band is about. Live shows, its what we live for. Theres no greater thrill than perform-ing live for an audience thats come to see you because theyve grown up with you and lived through the songs,Ž he says. It is important for Mr. DiNizio and his band mates to look forward, even if that means an occasional backward glance. Ive been Listening to the early Beau Brummels and Byrds, the Kinks to get inspiredŽ for the next Smithereens album,Ž he says. That music best repre-sents what a 3-minute melodic pop song should be.Ž He also has been watching a documentary about poet/songwriter Leonard Cohen, who has been performing high-energy arena concerts in his late 70s, and has been watching documentaries on such geniuses as Alfred Hitchcock and Ray Bradbury. Its not that its got to be rock and roll. Its got to be, for me, the person behind the music,Ž he says. I read (Bob) Dylans book, his Chronicles book. Hes a gifted natural writer. You can learn about the creative process. But the main thing is the artistic process. You have to keep it moving. Youve got to put water back in the well.Ž That is an important component of the songwriting process. Theyre really about each of our own life experiences. You distill them into a 3-minute pop song that touches people emotionally, then youve said it. Youve combined the best of both worlds: lyrics with music,Ž he says. Mr. DiNizios work is all about reaching an audience. We play every set the same way, whether theres 10 people or 10,000 people. Its done the same way, with the same go-for-the-jugular quality. We have to be able to play at this point in our career play as well as bands half our age,Ž he says. When he is on the road, Mr. DiNizio spends his day resting before a show. I tend to save all my energy for the performance. Youll generally find me in my room watching a ball game, reading a book, searching the Internet. I dont generally leave the hotel. I wont be running around, unless theres no room service,Ž he says. That helps him to perform at his best.Im pleased to hear them say, I saw you in 1986 and you havent missed a beat,Ž he says. Its giving it your honest best. You have to work at it.Ž Q “PRISCILLA”From page 1 SMITHEREENSFrom page 1 >>What: The Smithereens >>When: 4:30 p.m. April 21 >>Where: Meyer Amphitheatre, 104 Datura St., West Palm Beach>>Cost: Free >>Info: www.wpb.org/sow in the know COURTESY PHOTO The Smithereens are Jim Babjak, Severo “The Thrilla” Jornacion, Dennis Diken and Pat DiNizio. >>What: “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” >>When: April 23-28 >>Where: The Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach>>Cost: $25 and up >>Info: 832-7469 or Kravis.org in the know COURTESY PHOTO Wade McCollum (center) and the company in the “MacArthur Park” sequence of “Priscilla Queen of the Desert.”

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 18-24, 2013 B5 CONTRACT BRIDGELittle strokes fell great oaks BY STEVE BECKERChoosing the best line of play sometimes requires exceptionally fine judg-ment. In most cases, however, the cor-rect approach is clear-cut, although not necessarily apparent. For example, suppose you're in four spades on this deal and West leads a diamond. You win with the ace, and the question is how to proceed. It seems obvious that you should try to ruff a club in dummy to acquire a 10th trick, but this is much easier said than done. Let's say you lead a low club at trick two to pave the way for a club ruff in dummy. In that case, East would win with the nine and return a trump. He does not have to be a genius to fig-ure out what you're planning to do. Your best bet would be to finesse, but West unfortunately wins with the king and returns a trump. Eventually you go down one. However, this is the wrong way to play the hand. The right play at trick two is the king of clubs, not a low club! Observe the effect of this play if West has the ace, which would happen about half the time. In the actual case, West takes the king with the ace but is help-less. He can return a trump, which you'd win, but when you next led a second club, West would find himself stymied. If he won the trick, he would then be faced with the unhappy choice of letting you ruff a club in dummy or sacrificing his sure trump trick by leading a second trump. And if East won the club instead, he would have no trump to return. The king-of-clubs lead at trick two is not something that springs readily to mind, but it nevertheless substantially increases your chances of making the contract.

YesHindsight allows the benefit of looking back and seeing the absurdity of racial segregation in the United States, but perspective is needed. It must be remembered that in post-World War II America, certain indi-viduals accepted racism as a neces-sity. It was, simply put, how things were. Sad but true. Stand as we may on moral platitudes today and proclaim, I wouldnt have toler-ated racism if I were there,Ž (newsflash: yes, you probably would have, and would not have thought much of it), the fact is hindsight allows us to condemn the wrongs of racism the same way people will no doubt look back on American culture 70 years from now and find some of todays customs ridiculous. 42Ž tells the story of how Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) broke the professional baseball color barrier in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Its an effective telling of one mans ability not to fight back, but to be accepted. And to be sure, few wanted Jackie in Major League Baseball. Not the fans. Not the opposing players. Heck, not even his own teammates wanted him on the field, even when it was obvious he could help them win. Even though support for him gr ows as he proves himself, only a select few wanted Jackie playing from the begin-ning: Dodgers owner Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), who knew Jackie could help his team; sports writer Wendell Smith (Andre Holland), who helps Jackie navigate murky racial waters; and Jackies wife Rachel (Nicole Beharie), a beacon of support when all else looks bleak. One of the smart things about writer/director Brian Helgelands (A Knights TaleŽ) script is that Rickey and Dodgers manager Leo Durocher (Christopher Meloni) are never made out to be saints. Rickey is in it for the money: Dollars arent black and white, theyre green,Ž he says, while pointing out that Brooklyn is full of negroŽ baseball fans. While Rickey is also very religious, the decidedly sac-rilegious Durocher repeatedly makes it clear that he only cares about win-ning. Jackies teammates, including Hall of Famer Pee Wee Reese (Lucas Black), take longer than we expect to come around. Again, hindsight all ows us to know its obvious Jackie should be accepted, but the reality these players faced is that it wasnt obvious at all. Thankfully, Mr. Helgeland doesnt take the maudlin melodrama too far. Of course the racism is here, but its merely a plot element and never the focus, which is key because the prior-ity is Jackies story, which involves much more than racist white idiots. Mr. Boseman, heretofore a character actor of mostly TV bit parts, is strong and stoic as Jackie, and kudos to Mr. Ford for bringing some real charm to the cigar-chomping, bushy eye-browed, grumbling oppor-tunist Rickey. Seeing Mr. Fords per-formance makes you wish he pushed himself more often rather than stick to standard action fare. If youre thinking 42Ž is yet another racial polemic and/or that you need to like baseball to enjoy the film, think again. This a good story told with conviction and respect, two words that also sum up Jackie Robin-son quite nicely.

The New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts brings the essence of traditional Chinese culture to life on stages around the world. It was an extraordinary experience,Ž said Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett after watching Shen Yun. The level of skill, but also the power of the archetypes and the narratives were startling. And of course it was exqui-sitely beautiful.Ž Gorgeous backdrops transport the audience to distant lands and eras. The orchestra combines Western and Chinese instruments in a unique and beautiful harmony, accompany-ing the dancers with stirring scores. Dances tell the stories of the key moments in the history of Chinas culture; the costumes and backdrop recreate each dynasty and region; powerful singers tell of the longings of millennia. Shen Yun bridges past and present in an uplifting, inspiring, and unforgettable performance.  It oers something entirely dierent and entirely new. Remarkable... It deserves to succeed as it always does... Its a fascinating insight into what Chinas culture used to be and what I hope one day will be restored to China.Ž „ Edward McMillan-Scott, Vice-President of the European Parliament SHEN YUN„its a grand production. Every year we start fresh. Every detail matters. Our goal? Not just another show. We take our craft beyond the boundaries of performing arts as you know it. A Shen Yun show is a fusion of classical arts with modern appeal. As one au-dience member put it, Its like a fash-ion show, opera, concert, and dance performance all rolled into one.Ž Dicult? Yes. Impossible? No. Our passion motivates us to bring it all together into one extraordinary experience. Classical Chinese dance lies at the heart of our performances. The danc-ers„with what some have called lim-itless bodiesŽ„turn an intensely di-cult art form into something beautiful and eortless. Chinas 5,000 years of civilization provide an endless source of inspiration. The choreographers work closely with the composers to recreate ancient stories and legends, or convey an aspect of the culture, through short pieces that last no more than a few min-utes. Our graphic artists, meanwhile, use advanced digital technology to pro-duce stunning animated backdrops that correspond precisely to each dance. After seeing the show, one audience member marveled, This productionƒ is nothing short of a miracle.Ž Love it...Are you kidding? Its fantastic. the artistry is really fantastic.Ž „ Drew Carey, Comedian and Television Host THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST!Ž „ Charles Wadsworth, founder and 20-year artistic director of the Chamber Music Society at Lincoln Center

The Lords Place, an organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness through job training and other programs, holds the event each year to raise awareness of the estimated 3,200 men, women and children who are homeless any given night in Palm Beach County. But when he is not working at The Lords Place, Mr. Morse enjoys being part of the community. He grew up in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area and later lived in the Pan-handle, where he met his wife, Laura Bessinger Morse. They live in the Flamingo Park neighborhood of West Palm Beach, and have three daughters, an adopted greyhound and a Scottie. And, no, they do not always eat at home. We eat at Ambrosia (1603 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 833-8280), of course,Ž he said. Its easy walking distance from their home, too. We eat at the Dixie Bar & Grill (5101 S. Dixie Highway; 586-3189) and Howleys (4700 S. Dixie Highway; 8335691),Ž he said. The Lords Place is north of downtown West Palm Beach near the citys Northwood neighborhood. At The Lords Place, we go to Park Avenue BBQ (2215 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd.; 689-7427) and Saffron (731 Village Blvd.; 616-8585) which has an unbe-lievable Indian buffet.Ž At Park Avenue, which is a supporter of The Lords Place and SleepOut, he has a menu suggestion: The Adam and Eve boneless rib sandwich is unbelievable. Its ribs with the bones removed on a sandwich,Ž he said. One of the places I enjoy going to for drinks is J. Alexanders (4525 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 694-2711). Their onion rings are unreal,Ž he said. Ms. Bessinger Morse, a vegetarian, loves the veggie burger. Mr. Morse, a sax player, enjoys the jazz music that J. Alexanders plays in its bar. In fact, he will play Wayne Shorters Night DreamerŽ to the SleepOut crowd before they sleep out under the stars at the Meyer Amphitheatre. And when it comes to food, dont forget The Lords Place. Its Caf Joshua serves dozens every day and offers catering services. We may want to mention Caf Joshua Catering (2808 N. Australian Ave.; 494-2811). One of my responsibilities is directing our social enterprise program. The goal is to provide employment opportunities for our clients and former clients,Ž he said. Working at Caf Joshua provides those opportunities. Its doing very, very well. We do catering for events, non-profit lunches, breakfast events. Its really a full-service catering company. I can tell you that theres not a week that goes by that I dont hear how great it is,Ž Mr. Morse said. All that, and it is making a difference in countless lives. We are creating jobs for a population that has chronic unemployment and gaps in work histories. It is people who are not ready for private sector employ-ment or the private sector is not ready for them,Ž he said. The public is welcome to come eat lunch at Caf Joshua „ you never know who you will be seated next to, not unlike SleepOut. One of the things about SleepOut is everyone is wearing a SleepOut T-shirt. You dont know whos staff, whos a high-powered attorney, who just walked off the street. Its the great equalizer. I think Caf Joshua is like that as well,Ž he said.

Mr. Vescio was born in southern Italy and later moved to Rome, where he was introduced to the culinary industry. I was a very young boy when I entered this industry, I was only 14,Ž he says. When I was in Italy, I worked in the hotel and restaurant business, and Ive been in it ever since.Ž Growing up, Mr. Vescio worked in restaurants, pizzerias, bars and bakeries. He says that it was not until 1975, at age 22, when he moved to the United States and had to teach himself a new language and how to do business in America. Living in New York, Mr. Vescio landed his first job as a dishwasher at Lennys Clam Bar, a seafood and Italian restaurant. After working his way up to a kitchen position at Lennys Clam Bar, he helped open multiple franchise locations. He also opened his own Lennys Clam Bar franchise in Queens in 1980. In 1994, Mr. Vescio closed Lennys Clam Bar and opened Serafinos Italian Restaurant in the same location. In 2004, he returned to the original Lennys; he managed the restaurant for four years. After working at Lennys Clam Bar for 4 years, Mr. Vescio stumbled upon the Palm Beach Gar-dens Serafinos location. One day, I got a phone call and they said to come to Florida to take a look,Ž he says. So I looked at it, I really liked it, and here I am!Ž After opening in December 2012, Mr. Vescio and his partner have focused on offering a taste of Italy to their customers in a quaint, family-oriented atmosphere. Not only do we offer in-house dining, but we also have a full bar, delivery and takeout, a concept that we have never had before.Ž Name: Serafino Vescio Age: 60 Original Hometown: Born in South Italy, and later moved to Rome Restaurant: Serafinos Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria, 6271 PGA Blvd., Mirasol Plaza, Palm Beach Gardens Mission: We have a great chef and an awesome pizza guy. My main mission is to serve consistent and quality food and to explore all possible ave-nues; we deliver, we do takeout and we have a full bar. We do a lot.Ž Cuisine: Authentic Italian fare Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I sometimes wear two different kinds of shoes. When I work the kitchen, Ill wear a special kind of chef shoe that are non-skid. When I work in the dining room I wear Rockport shoes; theyre dressy but they are very comfortable and also non slip.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? I love Italian food and cooking my own specialty and tra-ditional dishes! Ninety percent of what I eat is Ital-ian. I dont go for junk food, I like full meals!Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurant owner? If your head isnt in it, then it will never be successful. You need to be an inside operator and know exactly what to do, especially when it comes to food cost and quality.Ž Q In the kitchen with...SERAFINO VESCIO, Serafino’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus jim McCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com Cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir have long been the most popular reds, but the latest trend in reds „ blended wines „ is really the oldest style around. Its food friendly and softer style has propelled it to prominence around the country. Wine made from a mix of grape varieties isnt new. Classic Bordeaux wines can be made from a blend of up to six varieties, predominantly cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Rhone district wines can include even more types of grapes „ more than 20 are permitted in various areas of the Rhone. Traditionally, European wines have been mar-keted by the district, village or vineyard name, without the types of grapes identified. In California, following Prohibition, winer-ies wanted consumers to identify their prod-ucts and named them after European counter-parts. Wine types included chablis, Rhine, bur-gundy and sauternes, even though the result-ing product bore little or no resemblance to those produced in Europe. As American producers began to build their brand awareness and presence in the markets, they wanted to differentiate themselves from Europe. Selling their wines by grape variety was something that was rarely done in the Old World. Along with this name change was the emergence of new technology, such as stainless steel crushers and storage tanks, which produced a dif-ferent style of wine. Wooden grape presses and fermenting vats were definitively Old World, and this new production method helped define California wines by the type of grape and winemaking style. Fast forward to today and we see that blends of wines, especially red wines, are an emerging market force. According to Wines and Vines, a leading winery business website (www.winesandvines.com), last year through the end of November, Bordeaux-style blended red wine sales increased by 23 percent. The category increased market share to 5 percent of the total market, just behind pinot noir and just under half of the cabernet sauvignon share. These wines are a decidedly different style than the traditional cabernet and merlot. Lower tannins give a softer feel in the mouth while reducing the acid. The flavors are fruity and fresh, with brands Mnage Trois, Apo-thic, Cupcake and 14 Hands leading the cat-egory in sales, according to Wines and Vines. But many of the better blends in the market today command higher prices, with producers like Tablas Creek and Dave Phinneys Orin Swift label market-ing only blends, with prices in the $30 to $80 range. The prices can go up from there, as cult-producers like Scream-ing Eagle can seemingly get whatever price they like for their offerings. The resale/auction market offers the 2008 and 2010 vin-tages starting at $1,000 per bottle. This weeks wine picks offer a more affordable array of these wines, which are well worth trying.
