Let me become, instead, an invocator.You will have other invocators who stand before you in funny hats and gowns at your graduation on May 18, and they will say the things that should be said to you. I will not. Since I know who you are, I also know that you can take it „ bad advice. Or put another way, advice to be bad. To journey to bad places, to do bad things. This is what the best people do, and I consider you one of the best. Dont say you havent been told, because Im telling you here: Be bad. I remember the first time I saw your magnificent potential to be bad, and took hope. You threw a wild tantrum at your aunts 40th birthday celebration in front of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cous-ins and various upstanding members of the community. You exploded. Your resis-tance to the status quo was so fierce and prolonged that you had to be carted away home by a grim and longsuffering law enforcement officer, otherwise known as a parent, caterwauling all the way like an enraged feline. Many wondered that day if you needed therapy or a drug regimen. In that instance, you demonstrated beyond a credible doubt your extraordinary potential to avoid being sucked into the maw of mere convention: of Sunday-go-to-church niceties, of country-club manners, of sugar and spice and everything nice, of the banal and pedestrian willingness to spend life at a shopping mall and define success as (first) never truly standing out, and (second), being merely comfortable. Comfort is the enemy, J, always. Especially if its the ultimate goal. The strongest cul-tural current you face in this river of Ameri-can life will push you ceaselessly toward the vacuous depths of mere comfort, where many are swept and many drown. The same is true of mere etiquette. In itself, its an enemy draped around you without thought, like a flirty garment from Charlotte Russe, one that everybody else wears, too, or would if they could. Thats why, at your aunts recent 50th birthday soiree, I was hoping desperately that you would repeat your performance at her 40th. I wanted an encore of sorts from you, this time as an 18-year-old. You didnt offer one, sadly, because no one gave you the chance. But I noticed something promising: your potential to be bad is alive and well. I heard a parent say to you, I really dont want you to go into forensics.Ž Once, she might have issued an imperative: You Will Not Go Into Forensics.Ž Even so „ even with that wiggle room you have now established for yourself in almost everything from clothes to boys to careers „ you wrinkled your nose dangerously. Then somehow, without so much as moving an eyebrow or even frown-ing, you rearranged your face to suggest that a nuclear explosion somewhere in the 100-megaton range was not entirely out of the question.That may be the Sicilian in you, from your mothers side „ although you have fire (and l ove, w hich is often not comfortable, by the way) in you from both sides, thank God. I dont care what side it comes from, however. I dont care what corner of the genetic map, or what direction on the compass it represents. Let me encourage and applaud it, this fiery potential in you to be bad. Other people, after all, may not face up to blood, which they see as bad (so they dont have to, do they?). Other people may not seek justice by analyzing the physical evidence of tyranny and injustice „ by analyzing brutalized ana-tomical matter, or microscopic detritus, or the characteristics of spent bullets or bomb fragments or DNA or any other trappings of crime. Other people may not be able to deal with the dark side, in other words. Its not a comfortable place. Its a very bad place, and bad places are uncomfortable. But you are not other people. You arent afraid of engaging the bad, although I dont think you underestimate it. (Please dont.) In the society that you now own as an adult American, and in the life that is now wholly and solely yours as a single woman, many other things are also considered bad by many people, especially middle-aged adults.Its bad not to always have a plan. Its bad not to always appear perfectly coiffed and made up (especially for a woman. Why is that?) Its bad to get dirty, to sweat, to define success as something more than monetary, to love somebody who isnt comfortably appointed in ambition, upbringing, religion, color, culture, career, income or family status.Its bad to show too much tolerance or compassion for those who are stupid or poor or make the wrong choices. Thats considered a knock-kneed, flower-waving weakness, and its bad. Its bad to talk about politics or religion at the dinner table, or to be rude on occasion when circumstances merit it, or to break with the rules or customs of sororities or fraternities of any kind „ formal or infor-mal „ because you think that what theyre doing stinks, and they think you stink for thinking it. Its bad to travel where youve been told not to, or pick up what youve been told to put down, or defend those youve been told (by the powerful currents in American cul-ture) to assault. Its bad to take risks, and the naysayers are right about one thing: doing so is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. Steve Irwin, the wildlife expert and environmen-talist you admired as a young teenager, was bad to the bone and it got him killed. But so what? Should he have become an accountant or a strip mall developer or a bean counter? You know what Im going to tell you, in the end „ but not at your graduation party next week, where I will smile benignly and practice good etiquette. Be bad, J, always. Be very bad.And l ove, R.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 9-15, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe Obama/Clinton reparations amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Abraham Carpenter Jr., a farmer in Grady, Ark., has more insight into human nature than the average soci-ologist. Anytime you are going to throw money up in the air,Ž he told The New York Times, you are going to have people acting crazy.Ž Carpenter is quoted in an astonishing 5,000-word Times expose on the federal governments wildly profligate program to compensate minority and women farmers for alleged discrimination. The government rigged the game against itself and in favor of anyone claiming taxpayers dollars. The enormous scam was set in motion by a 1997 class-action lawsuit called Pig-ford v. Glickman, with black farmers alleging that the Department of Agricul-ture discriminated against them in allo-cating loans. The Government Account-ability Office and the Agriculture Depart-ment found no evidence of ongoing dis-crimination, but black farmers had been treated unfairly in the past. This injustice became the predicate for officially sanctioned fraud amounting to reparations for non-white, non-male farmers.The Clinton administration decided on a $1 billion settlement, more a politi-cal decision than a litigation decision,Ž one lawyer told the Times. The presiding judge expanded the definition of claimants to include anyone who had attempted to farm,Ž and no writ-ten complaint of discrimination was necessary. The judge wanted to set up a mechanism to provide those class members with little or no documentary evidence with a virtually automatic cash payment of $50,000.Ž He succeeded brilliantly. Staff from lawyers offices filled out forms for claimants at mass meetings. People filled out applications for their kids. Entire families filled out applications. Most applicants had never received any loans, making it impossible to check the record to verify their claims. The Times examined 16 ZIP codes in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and North Carolina, and found that the num-ber of successful claimants exceeded the total number of farms operated by people of any race in 1997, the year the law-suit was filed. Those applicants received nearly $100 million.Ž In Little Rock, Ark., 10 members of one extended family reaped a cool half a million dollars.Tens of thousands of applicants missed the 1999 deadline of the original suit. Their claims were probably even weaker than the original ones. But as a senator, Barack Obama supported pay-ing the late applicants, and as president, he successfully sought another $1.15 bil-lion for the purpose. Other groups felt left out of the bonanza. Lawyers at the Justice Depart-ment thought that they were winning a court battle with Hispanic and female farmers. That didnt matter. Political appointees at the Justice and Agricul-ture Departments,Ž the Times writes, engineered a stunning turnabout: they committed $1.33 billion to compensate not just the 91 plaintiffs but thousands of Hispanic and female farmers who had never claimed bias in court.Ž The Pigford case is like something out of a Tom Wolfe novel. It is a tale of special-interest pleading and of the poli-ticians who give in to it (at first, Barack Obama wanted to pander to rural blacks, then he needed to do catch-up pander-ing to Hispanics). It is a story of greedy lawyers and hapless bureaucrats. It is equally ludicrous and dismaying. Take a good long look, and then recoil. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Mission Accomplished? Pregnant anti-war soldier sent to prisonUltimately, the success of the nation depends on the character of its citizens.Ž So said George W. Bush in his speech at the recent dedication of his presiden-tial library in Texas. The library offi-cially opened to the public May 1, the 10th anniversary of his famous Mis-sion AccomplishedŽ speech aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, anchored just off the coast of San Diego. Bush, in his remarks at the library, along with Presi-dent Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and others all failed to mention the word Iraq.Ž Violence in Iraq surged this April. In waves of attacks and counterattacks that resembled the high point of sectar-ian violence there from 2006 to 2008, 460 people were killed, and 1,219 people were injured, mostly civilians. At least 13 were killed on May 1, portending an equally violent month. Amid this ongoing violence, a young, pregnant soldier has been sent to prison this week for desertion. She refused to return to the war in Iraq back in 2007. Pfc. Kimberly Rivera first deployed to Iraq in 2006. She guarded the gate at Forward Operating Base Loyalty in eastern Baghdad at a time when the base was under constant attack. She said of the experience: I had a huge awakening seeing the war as it truly is: People losing their lives for greed of a nation, and the effects on the soldiers who come back with new problems such as nightmares, anxieties, depres-sion, anger, alcohol abuse, missing limbs and scars from burns. Some dont come back at all.Ž Her attorney, James Branum, who defends soldiers who resist deployment, told me: She felt that she morally could not do what she was asked to do; at the same time, she realized that she would put other soldiers in danger if she didnt pull the trigger when the time came. She talked to a chaplain about it. The chaplain largely pushed her aside, did not give her the counsel that she real-ly needed.Ž The chaplain should have advised her that she could apply to be a conscientious objector. Not knowing what her options were, while on leave in Texas in January 2007, Kimberly decided she could not return to war. With her husband, Mario, and their two young children, she drove to Canada, and settled in Toronto as she sought refugee status. She and Mario had two more children there. Canada has a long tradition as a refuge for war resisters. During the Viet-nam War, tens of thousands (the exact number is unknown) of young men fled the U.S. to avoid the draft, refusing to fight. After the war, most were granted amnesty and returned home. In 2004, Jeremy Hinzman became the first U.S. soldier known to flee there in opposi-tion to the Iraq War. The War Resist-ers Support Campaign was formed in Toronto shortly thereafter. At least 11 have been granted permanent residency in Canada, recognizing their refugee status. Kimberly Rivera has this groups support, along with that of members of the Canadian Parliament, Amnesty International and South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Despite the precedent and the outpouring of support, the Cana-dian government denied her refugee application. She turned herself in to U.S. authorities at the border on Sept. 20, 2012. At her court-martial this week at Fort Carson in Colorado, the judge sen-tenced her to 14 months imprisonment, which was lowered to 10 months based on a plea agreement. James Branum said of the sentence: The prosecutor at trial said that he asked the judge to give a harsh sentence to send a message to the war resisters in Canada. Many other resisters receive little jail time or no jail time. And people that desert, generally, over 90 percent do no jail time at all. And so, we feel that Kim was singled out.Ž Kimberly Rivera refused to shoot at children in Iraq. She had the courage to dissent, to resist. Now she sits in prison, pregnant, away from her hus-band, Mario, and four young children: Christian, 11; Rebecca, 8; Katie, 5; and Gabriel, 2. George W. Bush was right when he said that the success of the nation depends on the character of its citizens „ citizens, that is, like Kim-berly Rivera.

PET TALESHUSH, PUPPYBarking dogs benefit from training and elimination of bark triggers BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickAt this time of year, our windows open up to sweet scents of spring „ and the headache-inducing annoyance of the neighborhood nuisance barker. Is this dog yours? The owners of problem barkers seem to develop an ability to ignore the noise that has their neighbors thinking of legal action „ or worse. But a dog whos barking night and day isnt hav-ing any more fun than the neighbors are, and you owe it to both your pet and those who can hear him to fix this problem.The first step is to figure out why your dog is sounding off so much. Dogs bark to express a variety of emotions: anxiety, boredom, territoriality, aggression, play-fulness and hunger. Certain conditions in a dogs environment can trigger these emotions „ and the barking fits „ more frequently. The typical neighborhood nuisance is an outdoor dog who isnt getting the exercise and attention he needs. Dogs are social animals and need to be part of a family. If your dogs outside because of poor manners or because he isnt house-trained, give him another chance. Ask your veterinarian for a referral to a trainer or behaviorist and arrange for an in-home consultation to fix the underly-ing problems. Once youve brought him into your life, keep him busy with regular out-ings. Exercise, both of the body and of the mind, works wonders for all dogs, especially those who bark from boredom or to release excess energy. Youll be amazed at how much calmer, happier „ and quieter „ your dog will be! For the barking that remains „ some dogs are just naturally yappy „ your task is to train your dog to be quiet on com-mand when youre home and to reduce the barking triggers when youre not. Teach your dog to be quiet by distracting him from barking, saying the word QuietŽ or Enough,Ž and then praising him for minding „ hell make the con-nection soon enough, with repetition and lots of praise. Rattling a can filled with pennies is a commonly recommended distraction, and it works well. Shout-ing at your dog does nothing except make you feel temporarily better, since your dog may see your own loud yap as chiming in.Ž Work to minimize barking cues to keep your dog quiet when youre not home. If your dog barks while looking through a window that faces the street, keep him out of that room while youre gone. Many dogs fire up when they hear car doors slam; other dogs bark at the mail carriers steps on the walk. Muffle these sounds by leaving a radio playing while youre not home, and your pet is more likely to sleep than bark. Giving your dog something special to chew on, such as a Kong toy or hollow bone stuffed with a little peanu t butte r, will help to keep him occupied and quiet while hes awake. For the most persistent barkers, an electric collar that shoots citrus or cit-ronella mist when he barks may help, in concert with other strategies. The mist is harmless to the dog „ the citrus tang smells good to humans, but dogs hate it. The hiss of the mist releasing from the canister and the smell itself are annoying enough to distract the dog and correct him for barking. Citrus mist collars can be an effective alternative when some-one is so desperate theyre considering bark collars that shock the dog, surgical debarking or even euthanasia. Chances are that if you bring your dog into your home and train him „ get help if youre not getting anywhere „ youll never get that desperate. No matter what, working on this problem is well worth the effort: You, your dog and your neigh-bors will all be happier. Q Yelling at a barking dog does nothing except make you temporarily happier. >> Nathaniel is a 2-year-old neutered, white and black Jack (Parson) Russell Terrier.

Watch a sea turtle laying its eggs at MacArthur park, Juno Beach SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Its turtle nesting season, and Loggerhead Marinelife Center and MacArthur Beach State Park are offering turtle walks. Nesting season began March 1 and runs through Oct. 31. Last year was a record year for loggerhead, leatherback and green turtles nests along the 1.6-miles of beach at MacArthur Beach (about 1,900 nests) and a stretch of about 10 miles from Juno Beach to the Martin County line (about 13,170 nests). As of May 6, nests counted at MacArthur totaled nine leatherback and five loggerhead. At Juno Beach-Tequesta, there were 69 loggerhead nests, and 46 leatherbacks. At MacArthur, reservations are being accepted for Friends of MacArthur Beach members for Sea Turtle Talks and Walks, with walks being held on June 8 and 22 and July 6 and July 20. Reserva-tions for the public will begin on May 28, with walks being held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout June and July, ending July 19. The park is at 10900 Jack Nicklaus Drive, North Palm Beach, 776-7449. At the Marinelife Center, Turtle Walks will be held Wednesday through Saturday evenings in June and July, which is the peak time of nesting sea-son for loggerhead sea turtles to emerge from the ocean and lay 100 or more eggs. The walks are held on Juno Beach. Experienced scouts will patrol the cen-ters designated section of Juno Beach searching for sea turtles while visitors enjoy an informative presentation on the plight of sea turtles and visit with some of the beloved patients in the outdoor sea turtle yard. Once a sea turtle is found and begins her egg-laying process, the group is then able to join the scouts on the beach to watch this unforgettable experience. Turtle Walks are $17 per person or $12 per person for LMC members. The walks start at 9 p.m. and end at mid-night. Walk-ins are a flat rate of $20 and a spot is not guaranteed. All individuals, including children, are required to pay in advance to reserve their spot. Chil-dren must be 8 years or older to attend the walks. Attendees must be able to walk up to half a mile. The center can only accommodate up to 25 people per night and dates fill up quickly. There are no refunds on tickets if a turtle is not spotted. Turtle Walks sold out quickly last year, so early reservations are advised. To register, see marinelife.org/turtlewalk. The Marinelife Center is at 14200 U.S. Highway 1, Juno Beach, 627-8280. Q Participants of a turtle walk along Juno Beach see a sea turtle laying her eggs. FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 9-15, 2013 A7

DID YOU KNOW THAT 85% OF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK CAN BE TAXED? sofa, crosses his legs and smiles. It has been a busy several months for the poet, who says he was made in Cuba, assembled in Spain, and imported to the United States.Ž Mr. Blanco, 45, literally was conceived in Cuba, born in Spain and raised in the United States, coming of age in Miami. He now lives in Maine with his partner, Mark Neveu. He is the youngest poet to recite at an inauguration; he also is the first immi-grant, first Latin American and the first openly gay man to do it as well. It has been a busy few months since December, when he received the phone call inviting him to recite a poem. In the beginning, poetry was not his path; he studied to be an engineer. He has written of four books of poetry.But he might not have gotten that fateful phone call or followed that path of verse had he listened to his paternal grandmother, or abuela, who fretted that her grandson was not masculine enough. He immortalized her in Queer Theory, According to My Grandmother.Ž FW: You always mention your abuela and how she influenced you for better or for worse. Did she ever get to see you receive acclaim for your poetry? RB: Sort of. But she lived in another dimension. Before she died I had already published my first book and taken a position as a professor and moved to Connecticut. Thats where I met my partner. Shortly after I met my partner, she passed away. FW: Was there ever any grudging acceptance? RB: I never really came out to my grandmother. I had come out to my mother. My grandmother was already getting on, and you cant teach an old dog new tricks, or however you want to phrase it. I never really had that conver-sation with her. The other thing that people sometimes dont understand is that, in terms of the writing and everything, theres a big cultural divide, too ƒ A social cul-tural divide. It wasnt like we would sit around the dinner table talking about Frost or Picasso, you know, or Andy Warhol, and even if we were somewhat more affluent or artsy it would be Jose Marti and Nicols Guilln, so there were these divides that they were proud of me in their own ways and they understood that I was successful, but they couldnt really share fully what that really meant because they were outside the cultural element of what that means, and then poetry, which they couldnt really even understand even though they under-stood some English. ƒ I never really received that full support, or the emo-tional support. FW: You grew up in Miami. Whats it like going there now, versus when you were growing up? It was extremely par-tisan back then. Has it relaxed at all in Little Havana or Hialeah? RB: You know, its kind of interesting. When you, as a first-generation Cuban-American, or as first-generation children of immigrants, it seems to me that other people observe that much more than we do. Certainly, of course, the older folks, I remember them always getting into debates about this or the other, but for the most part, that middle generation, its just kind of normal and we dont think about it and we make up our own minds about what we feel. In some ways, growing up in such a politically charged atmosphere, Ive learned to seek out truth in other ways. Ive learned that usually the truth lies in the gray area. The Cuban community would talk about the Castro regime and the revo-lution and all this stuff, and then you would read in a book about all the social reforms that Castro did. And I was like, whose version of the story is right? And its like, neither. You hear these stories when you go to Cuba then you hear these stories from the Cubans in Miami. Thats what my writing is really all about is negotiating and navigating among all those worlds. But what interests me more is being an emotional historian of all that, not a political historian or taking that kind of stand. As a poet, as an artist, I feel my role and certainly not every artist feels this way, I just record what I see. Im recording the consequences of history in the lives of people around me in my community and my family in Cuba ... At the end of the day, I see how throughout history, throughout the flux of history it is those human stories that are stitched between those lines in the textbooks are what interest me. How these things affect peoples lives. How they survive, how they triumph, how they suffered losses, how they gain hope, all those kinds of things are really what poetry is about. The emotional center of those experiences, not the his-torical context or the political context, so poetry is amazing that it can always argue two things at the same time emo-tionally.Mr. Blanco studied in Miami and attended Florida International University. It was there he explored poetry, working with poet Campbell McGrath.FW: Do you remember your first poem? RB: Yes, I remember my very, very, very first poem was a silly little poem about a spider, which didnt turn out to be that silly after I showed it around a little bit ƒ There was always a spider who built its web from the hedge to my car door and, like every morning, Id destroy it and it would be back there the same morning. But a more significant poem was my very first graduate class at Florida Inter-national University, my very first poem assignment, which became the very first in my very first book, which was an assignment that Campbell McGrath gave us, which was write a poem about America, so in some ways that was really the first poem I wrote, because that was the first poem that made me question, Who am I, where am I from?Ž ƒ That really started me on this journey and I said, Wait a minute. Im not who I thought I was. I thought I was as Ameri-can as apple pie.Ž Since that day, every poem, every assignment throughout my whole grad-uate course became basically a poem of the first book, so I was lucky to have that moment, where I had that gravitas happened for me as a writer where I wasnt trying to be some other writer or trying to be some other poet, but I found something I needed to explore. Thats what art is for. Its not to find answers; its to ask very good questions. If there were an answer, you would write a poem and be done with it. I still dont have an answer for who I am. It gets more multidimensional as I have more experiences and see more of the world. FW: Do you go back and look at something you wrote 20 or 25 years ago and see how youve grown? RB: Certainly through the three books I see that, and I speak to that in my read-ings as well. A lot of writing and a lot of poetry starts by reaching back to that child-hood and where does the story start? You exhaust that to some degree. Then you start realizing how those experiences have colored your life as an adult and how theyre coloring you now, that Im 45, how they still color my experiences, and so I write about that intersection, though it might be a lot more subtle or a lot more thematic versus the narrative of that story or the theme that that story feels, which in the end is that sense of exile, not that Im exiled from an actual country, but that sense of always feeling that Im not quite home yet or that theres a paradise around the corner, that theres always a searching. Ive realized that in some ways thats actually a fundamental human drive. When we go on vacation ƒ theres that sense of trying to complete ones self through a place, through an identity thats tied to a landscape ƒ Ultimately that quest for home is a universal. Weve been looking for homes in all the wrong places for a long, long time. FW: Thats the great thing in the Cuban-American community, that Cuban diaspora, that always wanting to go back to the island. But you have been back to the place where you were conceived, right? RB: Yes, Ive been back four times. Well, I always say back, but its not really back. The first trip was really the first trip to Cuba, at least not as a fetus. The first trip was of course the most significant. It was just really amazing ... I had inherited all these half-stories. All these relatives that I only knew in black-and-white photos and all these letters and all this gossip, so part of me was visiting was needed to connect with that, I needed to come face to face with it, to find these ghosts. Mr. Blanco was able to meet many of those ghosts face to face, thanks to the communist system his family had fled. Because there is not venture capital in Cuba, most of the landmarks of his parents and grandparents generation have been preserved, rather than bulldozed in the face of progress.RB: A lot of things have been preserved in a weird way that makes it feel as if you were literally stepping back into the 1950s and 60s of your parents, so it was doubly powerful. All those stories they were talking about I always say was like walking into a pop-up book, where you could actually walk into those stories. The 1950s cars, the 1960s cars are still rolling around, so its like this facsimile of that world ... It was real-ly eerie and wonderful at the same time. FW: Do you set aside time every day to write? RB: I have these really big spurts of writing. Im more like a cyclical writer. I find that if I sit down every day, it starts getting boring, if I have to physically write every day. I think there are points where you collect information, where you collect feeling and thought. Im on that stage right now, because literally I dont have time to sit down and write, even though I am doing a lot of projects for various introductions of books. But my antennas and radars are up and recording ƒ Im most alive when Im writing. Im writing when Im on planes and thing like that. Theres noth-ing like creativity. I mean, the readings are great, and theres all this magic that has happened, but at the end of the day, the core of Richard is sitting at 4 in the morning at the kitchen table, with a full ashtray.

See your friend’s spouse cheating? Think before you tellSharon looked across the restaurant and did a double take. Was that Chet Adams, her closest friend Barbs husband? No, it couldnt be. Oh, yes, it was. And there was no mistaking he was snuggling cozily with an attractive brunette. Sharon was heartsick. Lately, Barb had been confiding that things at home with Chet had been strained. But Sharon was sure Barb had no clue that Chet would be unfaithful. Sharon wasnt sure what to do. She worried that telling Barb could set off an ugly marital explosion. On the other hand, if she didnt say anything, Barb could feel betrayed if she ultimately learned Sharon had kept this to herself. So, what do we do when were privy to secrets that could potentially rock another persons world? Its a loaded situation that can put us at risk, no mat-ter what we decide to do. Its important to consider every aspect of our actions, because the fall-out can be far-reaching and, ultimately, powerfully impact many lives. Our first inclination may be to act impulsively. Our friend has been wronged and its only natural to throttle the one whos caused the hurt. But, not so fast! First of all, we dont always have all the facts, so we must tread very care-fully. We certainly should sort out our needs versus what is best for our friend. Most of us consider troubling situa-tions from OUR vantage points. We may know what WE would expect friends to do if the situation were in their hands. But, as we know, not everyone thinks the way we do. They may not appreciate our well-intended gestures. This is not about us, and our need to demonstrate our loyalty. The steps we take should solely focus on our friends best interest. Its important to recognize that she may not receive our news with grati-tude. Oftentimes, our friend knows all too well whats been going on. We should remind ourselves that much of the time people elect to remain in relationships, even when some ugly improprieties have been revealed. Every couple has its own history, values and priorities. There may be serious emotional, fam-ily and financial concerns that greatly impact the ultimate decision the couple will make. Its important that we communicate that we will remain supportive and discreet as they determine what is best for them. Should we elect to share what we know, it will be important to pay special care to show sensitivity. We should be very careful to hold judgments to our-selves, and should make sure to refrain from offering unsolicited advice on how they should handle the situation. If we are pressed to offer advice, we would be well served to advise careful thought before any drastic steps are taken. We cannot always predict how the news will explode, and the course of events that will unfold going forward. If they call their partner every name in the book, we should hold back from agreeing with them. We need to be well aware that our friend may decide to work on the relationship, and will remember every last negative comment weve made. It may be too difficult to remain friendly if they believe we have strong judgments against the relation-ship. In these instances, we always run the risk that our friend and their partner will join together and blame us for med-dling. Worse yet, we could be accused of malicious intent or of trying to create problems.There are always instances where we determine that we should say nothing, especially if we have concerns about the emotional state of the people involved, or their life circumstances, such as a pregnancy or a recent family tragedy. This is a judgment call, and we have the right to show caution and restraint with information that may not be what is seems.Some people choose instead to confront the betrayingŽ partner, with a clear expectation that they address the situa-tion in their marriage in a timely manner. Ultimately, there are heavy repercussions, no matter which choice we make. We are in the unenviable positions of considering all the facets, and going forward with tremendous sensitivity and care. If we are true friends, we take every measure to preserve the privacy and dignity of the couple, and pray our friend will take protective steps that are right for her.

Leadership as a verb Last month, Leadership Palm Beach County held its annual Leadership Excellence Award event in West Palm Beach. LPBC is a nonprofit organiza-tion that has for nearly 30 years oper-ated multiple leadership programs to educate, cultivate, and grow a network of community leaders who engage and commit to addressing the issues of our times. Initially begun in 1983 in col-laboration with the Chamber of Com-merce, LPBC became an independent entity with the mission to build greater awareness about the countys unique economy and a stronger sense of the role residents share as stewards of our communities future. The Leadership Excellence Award has been given by LPBC since 2005 and its become a programmatic highlight of its activities each year, mobilizing its countywide network of volunteers and participants. All former graduates of LPBC programs are asked to nominate candidates and all graduates are eligible to receive the award. Those selected as finalists at the award event meet high standards that personify the organizations mission and the leadership qualities it defines as essential: integ-rity, compassion, credibility, passion, risk-taking, fairness, empowerment, and humility.Ž The accomplishments of past award recipients underscore the fine company one keeps when chosen as a finalist. Choosing a winner is tough, judging on the merits of those who qualify for consideration. The 2013 finalists were drawn from LPBC classes as far back as 1987 and as recent as 2010; and includ-ed top city and county administrators, nonprofit executives, attorneys, finan-ciers, communication and development professionals, bankers, consultants, presidents/CEOs, and community vol-unteers. If you think leaders are made rather than born, the accomplishments of these women and men would affirm that view, each having defined leader-ship in uniquely their own way. This is leadership without a pre-condition of a particular pedigree. Finalists commonly share an inspiring, long-term record of civic engagement and commitment to community. Still, its only human to want to shine the light of our appreciation upon some-one whose accomplishments are espe-cially impressive and for whom our respect runs deep. Our humility in the presence of a leaders achievement is honed by our own leadership experienc-es. If youve been at the head of a line to lead, you recognize the deep conviction and commitment required to labor in the vineyards of community change, tackling tough issues. Those who make it their lifes work are often transformed by it and move on to achieve more chal-lenging goals. For the truly exceptional, its not enough to pull babies out of the river; they must try to stop whoever is throwing them in. This pretty much describes the recipient of the 2013 Leadership Excellence Award, Patrick J. McNamara. McNamara is the President and CEO of Community Partnership Group. A native of Louisi-ana, McNamaras leadership has taken deep root here. He is a strong, impres-sive advocate on behalf of disability and affordable housing issues and his lead-ership extends to multiple forums that shape the policies and decisions, from local to national. He serves an organiza-tion that is a powerful resource toward insuring the economic and social well-being of children and families in Palm Beach County. We all win when women and men like Patrick McNamara, the 2013 award finalists and nominees, and the army of supporters and staff behind them, come together to do something that will change lives for the better. But leader-ship development is not an event; its a process. While thirty years is the age of a young adult, on the scale of institu-tion-building, thirty years is better measured in dog years. Much is required of an organization to successfully traverse such a span of time; and through it all, LPBC has been touching individuals and connecting them through a commonly shared program experience in a vastly changing and uncommon place. Two attributes make LPBC unique among area leadership programs: the geographic breadth of its mission and its tenure at the table in developing leadership over several decades of enor-mous change in South Florida. Thats an earned level of maturity that is potent in its resolve to sustain and grow with time the diverse values, contributions and beliefs of its membership in response to our communities changing needs. An extensive membership network of alumni throughout the county periodi-cally gets together, re-connects, and stays involved. This is the yeast from which change can grow and give leader-ship and civic engagement its rise.

Manuel, in the prepared statement. It is most gratifying to have Roche Bob-ois, an international retailer of premier home furnishings, choose North Palm Beach as the home of its second Florida showroom, and sole location in Palm Beach County.Ž The Roche Bobois operation is first class all the way, and the transformation of the space has made it one of the most spectacular free-standing build-ings along the U.S. Highway 1 corridor,Ž said IDT Holdings Director of Opera-tions and CFO Bob Bell, landlord for the property now occupied by Roche Bobo-is, in the statement. As a resident and longtime business owner in North Palm, I could not imagine a better addition to our community or a better project to jump start the corridors rejuvenation.Ž A notable exterior feature of the new showroom is its double faade made of Alucobond material brought directly from Germany by ThyssenKrupp, according to the statement. This cre-ates a double-height effect on the front of the building and distinguishes us from the neighboring structures,Ž said Julien Bigan, Roche Bobois general man-ager for the U.S. southeast region, in the statement. Featuring interior design by Roche Bobois in-house architects Jacqueline Hopfer and Nicolas Roche, the custom interiors meet the showrooms specific needs, from exposed black steel on the volume ceilings, to 24Ž x 24Ž contemporary grey porcelain tile flooring with minimal grout. There is LED lighting by Delta Light throughout that enables customers and designers to see the true colors of Roche Bobois rich materials and finishes, the statement says. Mr. Bigan said the parking area was also completely renovated with eco-friendly landscaping such as bamboo, which will fill in quickly. Our eco-friendly selections arent only on the buildings inside. Bamboo and other new trees, shrubs and ground cover also reflect our companys commitment to respect the environment,Ž Mr. Bigan said in the statement. Producing its own exclusive furniture and accessories for the home, the Roche Bobois Paris brand was born in 1961, resulting from a merger of two French family businesses. The company has become a worldwide symbol of fine European-made furniture, design and distribution. There are more than 250 Roche Bobois retail showrooms in 45 countries throughout the world, the majority of which are corporate owned. Twenty-four of the locations are in the U.S. The new location is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday by appointment. Call 835-4982, see roche-boboise.com. Q Roche Bobois opens second Florida store in North Palm BeachCOURTESY PHOTOThe new Roche Bobois showroom has a double faade made of Alucobond material brought directly from Germany by ThyssenKrupp. The store has 6,000 square feet of space. Emotions impact U.S. equity valuationsThe U.S. stock market continues to rise and the S&P 500 closed at 1,614, an all-time high closing, on Friday, May 3. Thirteen years ago, in March 2000, the S&P had its first closing over 1,500. The second attempt was in October 2007. Both times, the bull failed and bear corrections ensued. Investors are now pondering whether the bull will continue. Einstein once said, Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts.Ž He ought to know as he did a lot of counting as a physi-cist. So, as relates to investing and answering the above question, its helpful to follow Einsteins logic and ponder what is being counted that might not count and what isnt being counted that really might count. Clearly, Wall Street analysts or economists do a lot of counting. They count many anythingsŽ and all of the everythingsŽ to answer, Which way do equity market winds blow?Ž Most often, a long and com-plicated fundamental story is spun around their measurements or forecasts. So, if the pros are counting, why might it not count? Consider that their job is hard to do. There is no end to the range of U.S. and global (China, Japan, the EU, Great Britain, the OPEC countries) economic statistics to be considered; no end to their restatements, ups and downs, trends, inaccuracies debat-ed, meanings, weightings, and, for interna-tional data, their interplay with the U.S., etc. Their job was once easier. The world was once U.S.-centric (through mid-1990). Figur-ing the U.S. was largely the way to figuring the world. Their job got very hard when the world became truly international, albeit orderly (through 2008). Their job got to be impossible when (post 2008) the world became havoc-riddled and run by central bankers who make it up as they go. If and when the sun, moon and stars align, then their counting is made easier, but most times they are trying to discern a picture with ever-changing puzzle pieces. Something that the pros cannot count and which needs to be counted are emo-tions: The emotions of all the investors moving large amounts of cash into and out of markets; investor emotions manifesting in behavior that moves markets all have an impact that can defy quantification. What are some of the linkages between investor emotion and behavior? First, invest-ment gains/profits have a way of creating confidence about the allocation to the right asset class or the right manager being at the helm. So investors tend to become less risk-averse at market peaks (or in latter stages of a bull market.) Conversely, investor losses have a way of creating fear that allocation has been made to the wrong asset class or to the wrong manager or that they are well on their way to losing all of their money; they become more risk averse at market lows (or at the end of bear markets.) Prior to a bull markets frenzy stage, some market participants who, being neither greedy nor fearful, start to feel uncom-fortable with the risk-reward ratio. At the same time, the non-believers ponder their personal quandary as they have been non-invested or under invested and have been missing out.Ž The emotions of both grow in their respective directions (one grow-ing more skeptical of further gains and the other growing more confident that the mar-ket is safe and more gains are on the hori-zon.) The end of the bull comes when the very last of the non-invested, non-believers are pulled into a bull market. What did that description have to do with numbers and statistics and analyses? Noth-ing. It was all perception translated into emotions translated into behavior. What good investors understand is that risk has much more to do with the price of the asset or asset class than the risk of the asset or asset class. If you invest in an asset class that has highly escalated in price, you have larger price risk; if you invest in some-thing that has already taken a very meaning-ful hit or has been performing below its long term equity curve then, statistically, there is less price risk. But high prices lend easily to confidence and ebullience and low prices make fear and depression. When buying should be the hardest, it is emotionally the easiest; when investing should be the easi-est, it is emotionally the hardest. So, back to U.S. equities? Who are the emotional buyers this time around and what is the degree of the fever? The equity partic-ipants who might normally not be invested (or as heavily invested) in U.S. equities. The bond/income investors who can no longer tolerate the pain of holding zero interest alternatives. The Japanese and Europeans who fear their respective countries policies, taxations, confiscations and money printing. The decision making behind these recent inflows is not affirmative; these decisions are merely alternatives to worse choices. These newer buyers bring tremendously large capital inflows and are making deci-sions that have multiyear horizons. How long can markets remain totally detached from the underlying valuation metrics? As long as strong emotions bring the non-believers and non-invested to the equity game. If you can get out of your emotions of fear and greed (and complacency) and get it into your head that risk cycles in all asset classes go up and down, you can then prepare yourself for extended/overvalued markets or hard hit/undervalued markets. You can attempt to self-diagnose your own emotions and measure the emotional pulse of other investors. Beyond that, you can force a periodic rebalancing upon your portfolio, such that the appreciation in an asset class is real-located to asset classes that are perform-ing below their norm or equity curve. You rebalance your dollars so that your per-centage allocations reflect your original, targeted allocations. Check with your adviser as to suitability of these ideas for you. Consider additional advisers in investment areas requiring tech-nical expertise and specific licenses.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 9-15, 2013 BUSINESS A19Rain or shine — it makes a difference when you’re looking at homesA beautiful day with blue skies is perfect to show property in Florida. After all, this is why most buyers come to Florida in the first place. There is nothing like walking into a home with a potential buyer and the sun is shining through the windows, the landscape looks lush and colorful and the home is light and bright. It always makes an amazing first impression. On the flip side, it can be a realtors nightmare to show property in the pouring rain. You are in and out of the car, trying to stay dry, walking through a home after walking through puddles and dirt. Beyond this, the homes are generally darker and less appealing. This, however, is all per-ception. The reality most of the time is actually much different. Showing property in the rain can turn into several positive outcomes. First, if a client is serious about purchasing a home, they will take the time to look regardless of the weather. If they like any of the homes they see, then you know they are even closer to making a decision. Should they choose to go back a second time, they will more than likely fall in love with the home if it is a bright sunny day after seeing the home in the rainy, dreary weather. Just this week I had clients I showed property to for three days. Two of the three days were torrential downpours, but that did not stop them from looking. We had a full schedule both days and looked at approximately 15 homes. This is a lot of homes to look at in the rainy unpredictable weather, but for three of the 15 homes they wanted to schedule a second showing. I scheduled the second showings for the following day and we went back to the three homes on their list. The first home was on the water with an eastern exposure in the rear and large picture windows in the main living area directly overlooking the water. As we walked in they couldnt believe the difference in the home that day. It was 9:30 and the water was glistening from the sun shining down. The light coming into the home was perfect. Not overwhelming through the large windows, but at a perfect angle streaming through the home. Their eyes lit up when they toured the home. As we left, they mentioned this was actually their third choice the first time we looked. Now they had moved it to the top position. They realized how much time they spend in the morning outdoors reading the newspa-per and drinking their morning coffee. They have always loved to wake up to the morn-ing sun. This never came up during the first showing because they were more focused on space and design. The second home we went back to was also on the water and they liked it the most during the rainy day showings. It was a larger, newer home that was Mediterranean in style and lended itself to a darker dcor. This day it was still somewhat dark inside and although they loved the floorplan they felt that the design was just too much to change. It was a southern exposure, which meant sun on the pool and rear yard all day but the inside was still too dark. The windows were stained with a dark stain and the marbles/tiles used throughout the home were also a darker tone than the last house. They decided to rule it out based on the changes they would have to make, even though it was beautiful in its authenticity. Last we arrived at a home which was not on the water but overlooked a double fairway of a golf course with very expansive lake and golf views. Again, the weather made a big difference. On the rainy day, the view from the home was calming and serene. During the second showing, there were several golfers passing by in the dis-tance. This didnt bother them so much, but they did like a lot of privacy and felt like this would somewhat take away from that privacy. They loved the home though. The floorplan and size of the home felt just right for what they needed, and the outdoor area had a very large covered lanai with phantom screens and a beautiful fireplace. They could envision themselves here day and night reading, enjoying time with one another and entertaining others. There was just one glitch „ the home had a western exposure, which would create more sunlight in the afternoon and lots of shade in the morning. What they realized after viewing the three homes again was that they needed to make their decision based on their lifestyle and how they envisioned themselves living no matter what the weather was like. In the end they chose the waterfront property with the eastern exposure because they wanted a light, bright airy feel to the home no matter what the weather may be on any particular day. They also loved the sunlight coming onto the porch and into the home first thing in the morning. They still felt each property showed much better in the sun then the rain from an overall perspective, but the experience with different weather patterns helped them to narrow their decision to purchase.

She can be reached at 7226136, or at hbretzlaff@fiteshavell.com. heather PURUCKER BRETZLAFF Penny chomping pooch fetches far more than a few centsChildrens toys often tell us how times have changed. Canada stopped making pennies last year, so saving money a penny at a time will soon be a problem in Canada. The United States also may stop making pennies, since the cost of the copper in a single coin is more than one cent. But, ironically, the cost of a 19th-century mechanical bank has gone up. A Speaking Dog bank set a record at $63,250 a few years ago. The girl with the dog on that bank was wearing a blue dress. Most of these banks have a girl with a red dress. The bank was sold at Morphy Auctions in Penn sylv ania in 2007, before the economic downturn in 2008. And the record bank had almost perfect paint. But the Speaking Dog bank still is very popular. It sells today for prices that range from $150 for one with worn paint and rust to more than $14,500 for an excellent example. But watch out: copies have been made. The cast-iron mechanical bank was made by the J. & E. Stevens Co. of Cromwell, Conn., in about 1895 Place a penny on the tray in the girls hand. When the lever is pushed down, the dog opens its mouth, swallows the penny and wags its tail.Q: I have an electric clock that pictures the Trylon and Perisphere and the words New York Worlds Fair 1939Ž in gold on the face. The clock is in the shape of a ships wheel and is about 11 inches tall. It was made by Sessions Clock Corp. and keeps perfect time. Does it have any value?A: The New York Worlds Fair opened on April 30, 1939, the 150th anni-versary of George Washingtons inau-guration as president of the United States. It ran until the end of October that year, reopened in May 1940 and closed on Oct. 27, 1940. Many souvenirs were made for the fair. Items that picture the Trylon and Perisphere are especially want-ed by collectors. The three-sided Trylon and spherical Perisphere, symbols of the fair, were temporary structures made of plasterboard over steel frames. Check the website 1939NYWorldsFair.com for more information on the 1939 fair. Value of your clock: about $100. Q: I have six issues of Ladies Home Journal from 1898. Theyre in pretty good condition. I was thinking they might be worth something to a collector. What do you think? A: The Ladies Home Journal was first published in 1883. Its still on news-stands today. Issues as old as yours are especially interesting to collectors because of their old ads and photos. In general, 1898 Ladies Home Journals sell online and at shows for $40 to $45 each. Q: I inherited an antique Chippendale maple dresser with four drawers. Theres a large tag inside one drawer thats titled Florian Papp.Ž Handwritten information on the card says the dresser is a genuine antiqueŽ made in New England and that it was sold by Florian Papp in 1927. I would like to learn more. A: Florian Papp (18831965) was born in Hun-gary and immigrated to the United States in about 1900. He worked as a cab-inetmaker and furniture restorer before opening a gallery in New York City, where he special-ized in selling European antiques. The Florian Papp antiques and art gal-lery is still in business, now operated by the third generation of the Papp family. It has always been a very important gallery, and the provenance on the card is a guarantee that the dresser was made in New England and is not a reproduction. Q: I found a platter in my mothers china cupboard that doesnt match any-thing else she had, and I have no idea where it came from. The mark on the bottom is a circle with a crown on top. The word CelebrateŽ is inside the cir-cle, and Made in GermanyŽ is written below. Is this platter old and valuable? A: The mark you describe was used by Geo. Borgfeldt & Co., a New York City importer. The company was in business from 1881 until about 1976. Geo. Borgfeldt & Co. imported china and earthenware, dolls, toys, glassware, nov-elty goods and other items from Europe and sold them to retailers in the United States. The mark was used beginning in 1936. CelebrateŽ is one of the trade-marks owned by Borgfeldt. Your platter probably was made in the late 1930s, before the outbreak of World War II. It is difficult to sell a piece that probably was part of a set. Value: about $40. Q: I have a small set of Candlewick glass, but three of them are cloudy. I believe this is from being washed in a dishwasher. Is there any way to make them clear again? A: Cloudiness is caused by deposits of calcium carbonate left by new phosphate-free dishwasher detergents, especially if theyre used with hard water. Manufacturers removed phos-phate from their dishwashing products in 2010, after several states banned the ingredient because it contributes to the growth of algae in the environment. To clear up cloudy glasses, put a cup of white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher and run the glasses through the cleaning cycle without detergent. To prevent it from recurring, clean your dishwasher every six months and use less detergent when you run the dish-washer. You also can add a little citric acid to the detergent. Tip: Never scrub threaded coral beads. The edges of the coral are so sharp they may cut the bead string. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

So what will the Irish-rooted vocal group have to offer? Essentially, nothing but their best. Its a beautiful show,Ž Celtic Woman singer Lisa Lambe said in a recent phone inter-view. And its a show thats a celebration of the best of Celtic Woman. I suppose its almost like the greatest hits down through the years and songs that people will know very well, songs I think theyll want to sing along with, or at least I hope they will. Songs like Orinoco Flow, You Raise Me Up, She Moved Through the Fair, and then we have some beautiful classics that I dont think any Celtic Woman concert or performance can be complete without, songs like Danny Boy, which for me are some of the highlights and the moments that I enjoy best when Im per-forming the show. When you come to a concert, you always are going to want to hear the great anthems that you love about this group or the version of the song that you love very much,Ž she said. I think this year were going to deliver on all of those levels.Ž Judging from the continuing success of Celtic Woman, the group is backed by a full band and choir in concert, has created an elaborate live show that appeals to a large audience. Originally, Celtic Woman was created for a one-off television special filmed in Ireland. Musical director David Downes and produc-er Sharon Bowne essentially recruited four singers „ Orla Fallon, Chlo Agnew, Lisa Kelly and Mav Ni Mhaolchatha, along with fiddle player Mirad Nesbitt „ to perform that single concert.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSDoctor's orders: Too much of a ladyWhen a door opens, I always step through,Ž my friend Dan likes to say. I agree, especially when it comes to love. And love advice. People give me relationship tips in the strangest places and the unlikeliest situations. I always listen. Who knows when a gem will turn up? So when the physician s assistant at my doctors office started dishing dur-ing a recent check-up, I paid attention. Id just as soon take love advice from a man in scrubs. You married?Ž he asked as he held my wrist and timed my pulse. I shook my head.See nowŽ „ he jotted a note in my chart „ if we were at the club, I would never approach a girl like you.Ž I raised an eyebrow. Oh, yeah?ŽThe P.A. gave me the once over.Youre too high-maintenance.ŽI glanced down at my outfit. Highmaintenance? But Im wearing tennis shoes,Ž I said. I swung my feet under the exami-nation table to emphasize my point. The paper covering crinkled under my khaki-clad rear. The P.A. glanced up from my chart. Its the scarf,Ž he said matter-offactly. I touched the fabric at my neck. It was from Old Navy, made of cotton, and cost less than $15. We're not talk-ing Herms here. He shook his head.Not just the scarf. The whole look.Ž He closed my file and looked at me earnestly, as if he were about to dispense life-saving advice. Maybe he was. If Im on the town and I see a girl dressed like you, Im not going to talk to her. Im going to be a little scared to say hello. But if I see a girl who looks like „ pardon my words, but its true „ a hoochie mama, then I know what Im in for. Shes the one Im going to talk to.Ž I started to laugh. He didnt mean high-maintenance in the upkeep sense. He meant it in the amount of effort it would take to get me to bed. Ive practically memorized Steve Harveys dating advice book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.Ž Hell, I even saw the movie. I know that good men are looking for respectable women, decent women, women who act „ and dress „ like ladies. Right? A woman who is dressed appropriately „ has her goodies reasonably covered, but is still sexy, is a keeper,Ž Mr. Harvey writes in his book. A woman who is scantily clad and drip-ping sex is a throwback.Ž Exactly. But now I wonder if theres a problem with that logic. In order to be caught in the first place, maybe we need to show a little more skin. In fact, the best dat-ing stretches of my life came when I dressed just a touch „maybe a lot „ risqu. And the guys I attracted? Not all bad. In fact, it was a good mix, with a keeper or two thrown in. Maybe Mr. Harvey is right that a decent man wants a real lady. But the P.A. is right too. Sometimes it helps to take it down a notch, to be just a touch hoochie. Q „ Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse.

Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for North-east dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car dealers from New York to Georgia — deal-ers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent test-ing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, transporting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 1351 S. Killian Drive location in Lake Park. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a website.” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wit-tmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “ It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges con-sumers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250. “I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find afford-able cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inventory. He recommends all car buy-ers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service.

Advertorial This article appeared in Florida Weekly on 10/11/2012. “Dancing at Lughnasa” closes Dramaworks season SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Winner of the Tony and Olivier Awards, Brian F riels finelyetched memory play Danc-ing at LughnasaŽ will con-clude Palm Beach Drama-works 2012-2013 season, with performances beginning on Friday, May 24 at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre in downtown West Palm Beach. The touching story of five adult sisters will play a strictly limited engagement through June 16, with spe-cially priced preview per-formances slated for May 22-23. For 13 years, West Palm Beach's only professional, multi-award-winning resident theater has brought to the Palm Beaches a dis-tinguished roster of plays under the guidance of Producing Artistic Director William Hayes. Set in 1936 in rural Ireland, Dancing at LughnasaŽ tells the story of the Mundy sisters, who make the most of their uncomplicated existence. The play is narrated by the adult son of one of the sisters, who looks back with affection, sensitivity and insight to a summer in his aunts' cottage during his childhood. The production will be directed by J. Barry Lewis and features Cliff Burgess, Margery L owe, Declan Mooney, Meghan Moroney, Gretchen Porro, Julie R owe, Erin Joy Schmidt and John L. Thomp-son. Choreography is by Lynnette Barkley, set design by Jeffrey Modereger, costume design by Brian O'Keefe, light-ing design by Ron Burns, and sound design by Steve Shapiro. Dancing at LughnasaŽ was originally pre-sented at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin in 1990. It transferred to London's National Theatre later that year, and won the 1991 Olivier Award for Best Play. It opened on Broadway in October, 1991 and went on to receive the Tony Award for Best Play. It was made into a film in 1998, starring Meryl Streep. Evening performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m. Matinee performances are on Wednesday, Sat-urday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Individual tickets are $55 for all performances. Pre-view performances are $47 and Opening Night Tickets (May 24) are $70. Student tickets are available for $10. Group rates for 20 or more and discounted season subscriptions are also available. The Don & Ann Brown Theatre is located in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach, at 201 Clematis Street.

Dwyer and Wellington resident Jody Young have joined the board of direc-tors of the non-profit Young Sing-ers of the Palm Beaches, accord-ing to board chair-man Hank Gonza-lez. YSPB is Palm Beach County's premiere youth choir, featuring more than 350 of the ar eas most talented voices span-ning ages 8 to18. The award-win-ning, world-class troupe of youth singers has performed at concerts all over Palm Beach County, as well as at Lincoln Center in New York City, with Native Americans in New Mexico, and at international music festivals in Sal-zburg and Vienna, the group said in a prepared statement. The groups two annual concerts are held in Decem-ber and May on the main stage of the Kravis Center, with tickets starting at $10. A multi-racial, multi-cultural arts education organization based centrally in Palm Beach County, its enrollment is comprised of singers in grades 3-12 from all parts of the countys diverse racial, ethnic, geographic and socio-economic communities. According to Mr. Gonzalez, Mr. Dwyer and Mr. Young will bring impor-tant qualities to round out the YSPB board. As we celebrate our 10th anni-versary year, we are thrilled to have Ken and Jody join our board team,Ž Mr. Gonzalez said in the statement. Their commitment to YSPBs goals benefits local children. Kens experience in finance comes at an important time in our organizations growth. Jodys expe-rience and networking will provide Young Singers with new marketing ideas and guidance as we continue to explore the best way to serve both our children and our community. We are truly grateful for their participation on this board.Ž Mr. Dwyer is a financial analyst with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne and the father of two YSPB singers. In addition to volunteering for YSPB for the past three years, he has also served on the St. Paul of the Cross Parish Financial Council and is a past chairman of the council. In addition, he has spent 22 years as a volunteer and past area director for Special Olympics, a past president of the North Palm Beach/Palm Beach Gardens Jaycees, and a mentor for the Academy of Finance Program at William T. Dwyer High School. As a parent, Ive been able to observe in my children the develop-ment of their musical talents, con-fidence in their abilities, and pride in their accomplishments, as a result of their participation in YSPB,Ž Mr. Dwyer said. As a volunteer, Ive wit-nessed an extremely well run orga-nization and a dedicated and highly talented artistic staff. I enjoy and have fun volunteering for YSPB and feel honored to serve on the board.Ž Mr. Young is a freelance marketing professional and project manager spe-cializing in political election campaign management, consulting and fundrais-ing. He has more than 35 years of expe-rience in live entertainment event pro-motion and management of national touring artists. He and his wife Connie have been active volunteer parents with YSPB over the past seven years. He has served as a board member on several nonprofit boards focused on the arts and youth activities. I am delighted to serve on YSPBs Board of Directors,Ž said Mr. Young, in the statement. I have great respect for the accomplishments of the organiza-tion and I look forward to assisting in its continued growth. Our daughter Cara has improved her vocal skills tre-mendously by working with this group while learning what a strong commit-ment to a choral group can do in cre-ating some incredible concert perfor-mances. I want to help other children gain that opportunity by helping this organization thrive in its mission.Ž In addition to Dwyer and Young, the YSPB board of directors led by Gonza-lez also includes: Tim McAlice, secre-tary; Richard Childers, treasurer; Brian R. Hanley; Pat Morgan; Paul Velez; and Bert Winkler. Beth Clark is the organi-zations executive director. The groups next concert, Ubuntu,Ž will be held May 19 on the main stage of the Kravis Center with tickets start-ing at $10. UbuntuŽ is a South African concept illustrating the connectivity of humanity. The performance will be highlighted by an original song of the same name and world premiered at the concert. This year, the annual spring concert celebrates Young Singers of the Palm Beaches 10th Anniversa-ry. Auditions for 2013/2014 season are scheduled for June 1.

This helped paved the way for the release of the show as a concert DVD that sold more than 1 mil-lion copies. Meanwhile the groups self-titled first studio album topped Bill-boardŽ magazines world music chart for a record-setting 81 weeks. By then it was clear that Celtic Woman had a big future, and the organizers had hit on a musical formula with wide appeal by mixing together traditional Irish songs, a little light classical, pop standards (the repertoire has included Bobby Darins By The Sea,Ž the Josh Groban hit You Raise Me UpŽ and Enyas Orinoco FlowŽ) and even a few tunes from musicals and movies (such as Somewhere Over The RainbowŽ). In fall 2006, Celtic Woman branched into another niche, releasing a holiday CD, A Christmas Celebration,Ž which immediately topped the world music album chart. For 2007, audiences got another helping of Celtic Woman releases. There was a second studio CD, A New Jour-ney,Ž and a concert DVD, A New Jour-ney: Live at Slane Castle, Ireland,Ž both of which were supported by extensive touring. The CD A New Journey,Ž in particular, was another blockbuster. It ended 2008 as the top-selling CD on BillboardŽ magazines world music chart. As its albums and DVDs continued to sell briskly, the groups catalog was supplemented in 2008 with a best-of CD and DVD, both titled The Greatest Journey: Essential Collection.Ž That release was followed in 2010 by the CD, Songs from the Heart,Ž and a companion DVD, Songs from the Heart … Live at Powerscourt House & Gardens.Ž Last year, the group complet-ed another studio recording, Believe,Ž and a live DVD (the groups first DVD filmed in the United States) by the same name arrived, followed by a second holiday CD, Home For Christmas,Ž in the fall. The success has been sustained as the lineup has seen Ms. Kelly, Ms. Fal-lon and Ms. Mhaolchatha leave, and singers Alex Sharpe, Lynn Hilary and Hayley Westenra arrive and then depart. Todays lineup features vocalists Ms. Agnew, Ms. Lambe (who joined in 2011) and Susan McFadden (who joined in 2012), as well as Ms. Nesbitt. The current tour is the first time Ms. Lambe (as well as Ms. McFadden) has done a Celtic Woman show centered on the best of the groups repertoire. This means theyll sing songs that pre-date their arrival in the group. This, Ms. Lambe said, makes this years show especially rewarding. For me it will be very special,Ž she said. Its a celebration of all thats been great about Celtic Woman through the years. So its a real privilege because I kind of now feel that Im part of the whole tapestry of Celtic Woman. So Im very excited to get to perform some songs that I love so much, and that when I hear them, I kind of wished I could sing them. So now Im getting my chance. So Im very excited.Ž Ms. Lambe (pronounced LambŽ) said she will have two solo performances during this years show. One will be a traditional Irish song, Dulaman,Ž which tells the tale of a young woman who is torn between two suitors. The other is the Simon & Garfunkel classic, Bridge Over Troubled Water.Ž I think whats great about Celtic Woman is David (Downes), our musical director, whos just a genius in so many ways, he chooses songs that you think how will this ever sound like its never been sung before, a song like Bridge Over Troubled Water, a great anthem, an incredibly famous song?Ž Ms. Lambe said. And he did this incredible ver-sion for us, and it was just one of my favorite moments. And its a song that Ive always loved since I was a little girl. Im just thrilled that I get to perform it now in the show as myself and get to sing it for people and to hopefully touch peoples hearts as well with it as much as it touches mine.Ž Ms. Lambes association with Downes predates the beginning of Celtic Woman. She began her career in theater, landing roles in such productions as Improb-able Frequency,Ž Sweeney Todd,Ž The WiremanŽ and The Shaughraun.Ž It was during that latter production that Ms. Lambe met Mr. Downes, who served as its musical director, as well as Ms. Nes-bitt, who was also cast in the play. Mirad Nesbitt and I shared a dressing room for this whole process,Ž Ms. Lambe said. About that time she had been saying Im going to join this wonderful new thing. Its called Celtic Woman, and Davids involved. So I really feel its such a wonderful thing to be a part of now because I just remem-ber her in the dressing room telling me about the process (as) it was starting. Obviously having worked with David, we had made a great connection and we stayed friends in the years when we didnt see very much (of each other) and he was very busy with Celtic Woman. Then out of blue, I suppose, just came a day when we met and we talk-ed about the prospect of me coming aboard,Ž Ms. Lambe said. And I was thrilled because I kind felt like it was in my head really, having known of it since kind of the early days, and then being a fan of it through its early years. Im a huge lover of music. I knew that I could bring so much of myself to the stage and bring the theater with me as well, bring my love of story telling into the music. So it just seemed like the perfect thing to do, and Im so thrilled, so thrilled, to be a part of it.Ž Q CELTICFrom page 23 Celtic Woman>> 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. May 11 >> Where: Kravis Center, 801 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach >> Tickets: $25 and up >> Info: 832-7469 or kravis.org COURTESY PHOTOCeltic Woman will perform two shows May 11 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

But since its move to Crystal Tree Plaza, it has opened a caf offering lunch and dinner items. A shrimp roll ($13) hit the spot with its decadent quantities of fried shrimp, and an oyster roll also exceeded expectations. But the fresh dolphin served grilled on a toasted roll with plenty of lettuce, tomato and onion hit the spot quite nicely. The fish was indeed fresh and fork-tender, and the rice and the beans on the side offered a nice, slightly piquant finish. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Anything from omelets to veggies burgers or even chicken honey curry saut, the quaint and extensive menu is offered by none other than Martin Watson, the chef and owner of Bentleys Cafe and Bakery. I make the best pate „ some customers just cant get enough,Ž says Mr. Watson. Born in Yorkshire, England, Mr. Watson has been in the culinary industry since the age of 15. He says he has worked in more restau-rants than he can count, mak-ing him a veteran in the culi-nary and hospitality world. Mr. Watsons training extends from taking multiple courses at the University in England, where he says he was trained in French cuisine. He later trained in country inns, world-class hotels, including Sheridan and Canadian Pacific hotels as well as leading restaurants. Ive worked hotels and restaurants globally and traveled a lot,Ž he says. Toronto, Nova Scotia, Alberta, the Caribbean and Denver are a few of the places he has lived; however, he lived in Toronto for 20 years, and that is where he says he gained the most experi-ence. In a sense, I was lucky to work in so many hotels throughout Europe and Canada because they have such a high-end and award-winning quality,Ž he says. The hotels there are very dif-ferent from the questionable qualities of hotels here.Ž Mr. Watson has lived in Florida for 20 years, and it is where he met his wife, Valerie. Together the couple ventured in opening King Charles Tea Shop, as well as Britishbakery.com. Being parents to six Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, the couple sold all of their establish-ments. That is, until five years ago, when Bent-leys Bakery and Cafe was created and named after their eldest Cavalier. Filled with artwork, books, dry-erase boards for doodling at every table, and comfortable chairs; Bentleys offers a laidback, chic style of dining. Its hard to find us because of where were situated,Ž he says. Once were found, people cant stop coming back. We have quite the following.Ž Name: Martin Watson Age: 62 Original Hometown: Yorkshire, England Restaurant: Bentleys Cafe and Bakery, La Mer Plaza, 805 Donald Ross Road, Juno Beach Mission: We do a quite a bit of catering and we like to be inventive and creative with it; thats something that weve really been focusing on.Ž Cuisine: American fare Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Birkenstocks, of course. Ive tried Shoes for Crews, and they just dont compare! The Birkenstocks are great clogs that are obvi-ously closed toe and comfortable.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? To say one thing is just too hard. I would love to eat fresh fruit, fresh brie and bread all the time, but I know that isnt the healthiest diet. If I have a passion for something, then I would say, sau-sage. We have the best turkey sausage here and I would love to make a vegetarian sausage.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef or restaurateur? If youre young, then my best advice would be to go into the medical field. This business brings long hours, lack of funds and youll be facing prob-lems that youd never even dream of.Ž Q In the kitchen with...MARTIN WATSON, Bentley’s Cafe and Bakery BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus The Palm Beach pop-up will return this summer to Caf Boulud.

No ad, no chance to win. Thats not our style here at Florida Weekly. We wanted to create a Best of Palm Beach County that was fun, entertain-ing and untainted (for the most part) by commerce. We set out to create a list that captured the character or our unique area with the kind of flair youve come to expect from this publication. Instead of focusing on local merchants, we spotlight the people, places and events that make South Florida special. If someone did advertise, however, we thanked them by including them as a best. At least were honest.And, instead of having readers vote, which is a process rife with skulldug-gery, we sent our award-winning writ-ers and editors out to scour Palm Beach County for the Best. BEST CANOE TRAIL>> Loxahatchee RiverThe Loxahatchee River has something in common with the Colorado River „ both set aside as a national Wild and Scenic River. Wending through marshes, swamps, a cypress hammock and a variety of ecosys-tems, the river provides canoeists all the nature-washed experiences. Waterfowl, wildlife and hundreds of plants and tree species can be spot-ted as the river takes you from the edge of the Everglades to the Atlantic Ocean. Several spots are available to launch, but Riverbend Park is a favorite and will lead you to Jonathan Dickinson State Park, both with ample parking.

And it continues to offer its weekly Art After Dark events on Thursdays to bring a new, diverse audience into the museum. Thats something to be proud of. 1451 S.
