The Classic, held Feb. 28-March 3, raised $2.13 million for a variety of local causes, beating the record $1.85 million raised in 2012. It is the seventh straight year the tournament has boosted its distribution. When the Classic moved to PGA National Resort & Spa in 2007, it awarded $430,000 to local charities. By 2010, it had eclipsed the $1 mil-lion mark ($1,018,961) and hit $1,266,422 in 2011. Tiger Woods added the tournament to his schedule, joining other such top play-ers as 2012 champ Rory McIlroy, Lee West-wood, Graeme McDowell and Ernie Els. That added star power led to increased ticket sales, parking revenues, concessions and sponsorships. We continue to raise the bar,Ž Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R.

Pick July, or make it an August plan „ pick another year or decade, if you can. But not now when time grows giddy, when spring breath blows summer hot and dreaming might be doing. Now its time to speak. Now even words, like snow-melt streams sighing seaward from somewhere high, come dressed in light-washed finery, in greens and golds that bear this simple message: Speak, then forever hold your peace. But speak now, in June. Love is seasonless, but its kisses are not. Love is timeless, but its caresses are June. This is summers gilded entrance, when Mays polite flirtations boil into yearning. June is not about anything you have to do but everything you want to do,Ž says my wife, Amy. Its summer. Its all about desire.Ž The Romans, compelled to order the world according to their desires, offered us the words of their poet, Horace: Carpe diem!Ž A June lover, Horace set that jeweled phrase in a crown of Latin: ƒsapias vina liques et spatio brevi spem longam reseces. Dum loquimur fugerit invida aetas. Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.Be wise and truthful, prepare the wine, trim your hope to the brief moment. While we speak, jealous time has fled. Seize the day, trusting little to tomorrow.Ž Seize the day.If youre a farmer, kiss the fields with your nurture. If youre a parent or a teach-er, do the same with your children. If youre an accountant, kiss the books with right numbers. If youre a lawyer or a doc-tor, kiss the law with clear reason or the patient with clean health. Dont wait; do it now. Its June, its time to speak, to kiss, to act out. My own suggestions for acting out are the earthy ones, the free of charge, the sensuous and elemental reminders of our assignment to the temporal, beyond which lies no time at all. At the very least, let me recommend these six simple Junings: Q The rain walk. Pick a park or forested place in a rainstorms path, go into the trees, and sit „ simply sit. Listen and breathe. Let the hard summer torrent clean your life of anything but water and woods. If you dont think that can happen, try it.Q The night chorus. Stop near woods in a late June dusk. Close your eyes, cup your ears and listen again „ this time to one of the most astounding vocal ensem-bles in North America. The Southern, the spadefoot, and the narrow-mouthed toads all join their brethren frogs to sing the summer gospel „ the Southern leopard, the spring peeper, the chorus frog and a quartet of natives in the trees (the bird-voiced, the squirrel, the barking and the pinewoods frogs). Each voices a tony trill or chirp, a begging bleat or bold bark, a quavering chirrup. Taken together they become a deafening celebration of desire „ Junes cacophonous night music. Q The morning swim. Pitch yourself off the beach or into the river, near sunrise. Nothing else reveals the promise of June like a morning swim. Q The longest light day, June 21. Spend the summer equinox watching daylight stretch toward umber dusk. Sumer is icu-men in,Ž wrote a medieval poet. Especially in Florida. Q The lunar night watch, June 23. Spend the full-moon midnight watching liquid silver pour from a pitcher universe, like a lunatic. The lunatic, the lover and the poet/are of imagination all compact,Ž wrote Shakespeare. Especially in Florida. Q The overheat. And finally this: Give yourself one hard hours labor, one long days work, a physical assault to flood your hammering pump with June, then wash the effluent out your pores. I recommend driving railroad spikes, or sinking fence posts, or chopping wood to overheat, but if you wont do that, then run, bike or walk until you cant.Those six recommendations, those Junings, are essential for living here in full. But they probably dont appear on your bucket list of things to do before you die, do they?Your trip to Europe or New York City or the Hawaiian Islands. The pilgrimage to Notre Dame or the Taj Mahal or Machu Pic-chu. A retreat to Tennessee or North Caro-lina. A seat above the dugout at Fenway, or Wrigley Field, or Yankee Stadium. A frontrow perch at Lincoln Center, or Saratoga Springs. A jump from 10,000 feet complete with functioning parachute, a back-seat ride in an F-18 Hornet, a chance to ski Banff or Aspen or Grindelwald, or dive the Great Barrier Reef. A week at The Breakers-Palm Beach, or The Ritz-Carlton-Naples, or the Gasparilla Inn on Boca Grande. All lovely, but all certain to separate you from what you are at heart: a Florida homey branded by a dead Roman with just two unequivocal words: carpe diem! Hence my list.So let me leave you with that, along with a couple of reminders that you should get to it now, one of these days in June while time still flies. After all, said Andrew Marvel, The graves a fine and private place/But none I think do there embrace.Ž And planning for another time, warned Robert Burns, will put you at grave risk: The best-laid schemes o mice an men/Gang aft agley/An leae us naught but grief an pain/For promised joy.Ž But if you choose to ignore my list, if you wait to live for another summer time, then I give you this: incandescent desire and good company, like those embraced by Arthur Symons. That Welsh writer knew June. Here is the second of two stanzas from his poem, In Fountain Court:Ž A waiting ghost in the blue sky,the white curved moon;June, hushed and breathless, waits, and IWait too, with June;Come, through the lingering afternoon,Soon, l ove, c ome soon.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONBeing Eric Holder amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly President Barack Obama has been mocked for learning about untoward conduct in his administration from the press. But hes on the ball compared with his attorney general, who wouldnt know about his own poor judgment without reading about it in the papers. Lets hope he has a Google alert set for Eric Holder.Ž The website The Daily Beast interviewed the attorney general and Jus-tice Department officials for a piece about how the AG is holding up in the firestorm over two controversial Jus-tice Department leak investigations, one into The Associated Press, the other into Fox News reporter James Rosen. The Daily Beast piece pinpoints when Eric Holder had a crisis of conscience leading him to question his leak-inves-tigating ways. The Washington Post had made inquiries at the Justice Depart-ment about the investigation into Rosen stemming from a 2009 leak, and the departments press office had begun to ready itself for the storm. For Eric Holder, though, the gravity of the situ-ation didnt fully sink in until Monday morning when he read the Posts frontpage story, sitting at his kitchen table.ŽThen, the awful realization hit him that maybe it wasnt such a great idea for him to sign off on an affidavit portraying a member of the press „ particularly one from a news organization scorned and attacked by the White House „ as practi-cally an agent of a foreign power. Perhaps it wasnt so wise, after all, to identify Rosen as a co-conspiratorŽ in a crime. Come to think of it, it might have been ill-advised to track his movements in and out of the State Department building that he covered and to read his e-mails.Yes, Eric Holder was beginning to wonder whether Eric Holder had made the right call. It may get worse if Eric Holder gets around to reading in the papers that Congress is investigating whether Eric Holder lied to it under oath. It turns out that Eric Holder did indeed make a false representation about Eric Holder. Congressman Hank Johnson, D-Ga., pointed out to the attorney general that reporters could potentially be prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917, and closed his interrogation with the clear trap: Ill yield the balance of my time to you.Ž Unable to find any way to wiggle free from this killer line of ques-tioning, Eric Holder said, With regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something Ive ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.Ž Eric Holder had plumb forgot that Eric Holder might have signed off on such a thing. Timing is everything: If only The Washington Post had published earlier! What Eric Holder has done is so troubling to everyone, including Eric Holder, that President Obama has ordered a review of Justice Department policy „ to be undertaken by the single most appropriate man for such a task: Eric Holder. An unidentified friend told The Daily Beast, Look, Eric sees himself fundamentally as a progressive, not some Torquemada out to silence the press.Ž And why would he want to silence the press? Its how he keeps up with Eric Holder. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Hammond, Manning, Assange and Obama’s sledgehammer against dissentOne cyberactivists federal case wrapped up this week, and anothers is set to begin. While these two young men, Jeremy Hammond and Bradley Manning, are the two who were charged, it is the growing menace of government and corporate secrecy that should be on trial. Hammond was facing more than 30 years in prison, charged with hacking into the computers of a private secu-rity and intelligence firm called Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, when he agreed to a plea agreement of one count of com-puter hacking. Stratfor traffics in geo-political intelligence, economic, political and military forecasting,Ž according to its website. Yet, after Hammond and others released 5 million e-mails from Stratfors servers to WikiLeaks, it became clear that the firm engages in widespread spying on activists on behalf of corpora-tions. Coca-Cola hired Stratfor to spy on the group PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Dow Chemical hired Stratfor to spy on the activists who were exposing Dows role in the cyanide chemical disaster in Bhopal, India, in 1984 that killed an estimated 8,000 and injured thousands more. Hammond is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 6. His lawyers have asked for time served „ 15 months, some of which was in solitary confinement. He faces 10 years. Bradley Manning, meanwhile, will finally have his day in military court at Fort Meade, Md. He faces a slew of charges related to the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history. Manning pled guilty to mishandling the information, and acknowledged upload-ing hundreds of thousands of documents to the WikiLeaks website. But he denies the most serious charge, still pending, of aiding the enemy.Ž Prosecutors are seeking life in prison; however, if Man-ning is found guilty, the judge could still impose the death penalty. Bradley Manning and Jeremy Hammond are among the highest profile in a series of cases that the Obama administration has been pursuing against whistle-blowers and journalists. Attor-ney Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights, and an attorney for WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, said in front of the courthouse after Hammonds court appearance, This is part of the sledgehammer of what the government is doing to people who expose corporate secrets, government secrets, and really the secrets of an empire.Ž Manning explained his actions and his motivation in a detailed statement in his pretrial proceedings. He said, I believed that if the general public, espe-cially the American public, had access to the information ... it could spark a domestic debate on the role of the mili-tary and our foreign policy in general.Ž The first public release by WikiLeaks of the material provided by Manning was the video (titled by WikiLeaks) Col-lateral Murder.Ž The grainy video, taken from an attack helicopter, shows the cold killing of a dozen men on the ground in Baghdad on July 12, 2007. Two of those killed by the U.S. Apache helicopter gun-ship were employees of the Reuters news agency, cameraman Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and his driver, Saeed Chmagh, a father of four. After their violent, senseless deaths, Reuters sought answers and filed Free-dom of Information requests for material relating to the attack, which were denied. Manning saw the video when stationed in Iraq, and researched the background of the attack. He saved the video file. He explained in court, I planned on provid-ing this to the Reuters office in London to assist them in preventing events such as this in the future.Ž Hammond and Manning, facing years in prison, have in common their con-nection to WikiLeaks and its founder, Assange. Assange is wanted for question-ing in Sweden about allegations of sexual misconduct „ he has not been charged. After losing a fight against extradition in Britain, he was granted political asylum by the government of Ecuador, and has remained in Ecuadors embassy in Lon-don since last June. It was a leaked Strat-for e-mail that referenced a U.S. indict-ment against Assange, reading: Not for Pub „ We have a sealed indictment on Assange. Pls protect.Ž This all happens amidst recent revelations about the Obama administrations extraordinary invasion of journalists pri-vacy and the right to protect sources. The Associated Press revealed that the Justice Department had secretly obtained two months of telephone records of its reporters and editors in an effort to dis-cover the source of a leak about a foiled bomb plot. Fox News chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen, may actu-ally be charged in a criminal conspiracy for allegedly receiving classified infor-mation from a source about North Korea. President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have used the Espio-nage Act six times to prosecute whis-tle-blowers „ more than all previous presidents combined. Obamas assault on journalism and his relentless war on whistle-blowers are serious threats to fundamental democratic principles on which this nation was founded. The job of journalists is to hold those in power accountable. Our job is to be the fourth estate, not for the state.Ž Let us be. 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.

For adoption information, call 848-4911.Pets of the Week BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickHow do you help more cats with less money? Contrary to decades of con-ventional practice, some in the shelter community are now arguing that for municipal shelters, the answer is to leave free-roaming cats alone, and to ask communities nonprofit shelters to do the same. We help when a cat is in trouble, or is causing trouble,Ž says Tracy Mohr, a 30-year shelter veteran who recently turned the California college town of Chico into one where cats are no longer routinely accepted at the citys tax-fund-ed shelter. If thats not the case, we leave them alone and ask that others do, too.Ž Chicos city shelter no longer accepts nuisanceŽ cats trapped and brought in by citizens, nor cats presumed to be lost pets. The city shelter also no longer accepts cats given up by their owners for adoption. Those animals now go to the Butte Humane Society, a local nonprofit that had already been pulling cats from the city shelter for adoption. By sending people looking to rehome a pet directly to the nonprofit shelter, the community has one-stop shoppingŽ for adopting cats while sparing the animals the stress of being moved from one shelter to another. The changes were put in place in February, and theyve resulted in fewer cats killed and, more surprisingly, fewer unhappy citizens. Mohr says thats because the shelters were all on the same page when it came to handling cats, and because the community outreach ahead of the change was extensive. We have a very active animal welfare community here, with a lot of organiza-tions and a lot of very active, concerned people,Ž says Mohr. The change made perfect sense.Ž What didnt make sense was continuing with traditional sheltering methods when budgets are being slashed, says shelter medicine pioneer Dr. Kate Hur-ley of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis. Hurley points out that landing in a shel-ter is a good thing if youre a dog, but thats rarely the case for cats. People know when a dog is missing, and they know it right away,Ž she says. The dog was here, and now hes not. Thats not true with cats. Its not uncom-mon for an owned cat to be missing for a while, and an owner wont start looking because the cat always came back before.Ž With all our efforts in shelters to reunite cats with their owners, more commonly what were doing is killing peoples pets,Ž says Hurley, noting that 67 percent of lost cats are reunited with their owners by returning on their own, but only 2 percent of shelter cats are reclaimed by their owners. In other words: Cities can save money by not dealing with lostŽ cats or feral cat colonies, which are both situations that typically will resolve or can be resolved without official intervention. The change is in part a realization that free-roaming cats, whether pets or feral, have more in common with wild animals than with dogs. No one would ever suggest that there were enough money and man-hours to eradi-cate entire populations of wild species in urban areas. Instead, the strategy is to remove dangerous animals and help those wild animals in trouble. The same strategy works for cats, says Dr. Hurley, and Mohr agrees. Take people complaining that theres a cat in their yard, going to the bathroom in their garden,Ž says Mohr. If they trap that cat, really, is that going to solve the problem? No, because there are probably more cats in the neighborhood. Trapping will be an exercise in futility. What were counseling people to do, the same way we counsel them with wildlife, is to use strategies that make a yard less attractive for a cat. The problem gets solved by leaving the animal alone in most cases, and were using our community to solve it.Ž The bottom line, says Mohr, is a collaborative community effort aimed at problem-solving, using strategies that actually work with and for cats, while saving money for taxpayers. Q A paws-off approachTight budgets lead some city shelters to stop treating cats like dogs Most “lost cats” will find their way home if left alone, but only a tiny fraction of those taken to a shelter will be reunited with their owners.

Grant recipients include the Legal Aid Society of the Palm Beaches ($50,000), Mental Health Association of Palm Beach County ($50,000) and the University of Florida ($904,894). The board also approved an additional $750,000 for the Quantum in the Community initiative, which funds grassroots nonprofits providing for peoples basic needs like food, housing and transportation. Quantum Foundation is West Palm Beachs largest health-related grant-making organization with 100 percent of funding dollars staying in the county. The founda-tion has assets of approximately $140 million and since its inception in 1997 has awarded nearly $100 million to more than 800 grant-ees in Palm Beach County. Under the chairmanship of William Meyer, the 12-member board unanimously approved the grants which will provide ser-vices directly aligned with the foundations mission of funding innovative projects that improve the health of all county residents:Q The Legal Aid Society „ A $50,000 grant funds the Medical-Legal Partnership, which primarily assists in resolving health-related legal issues such as denial of benefits or financial hardship resulting from the cost of medical care. Q The Mental Health Association „ A $50,000 grant will help increase the capac-ity for mental health professionals to work directly with primary care physicians, result-ing in a stronger treat the whole personŽ approach to health. Q The University of Florida „ A $904,894 grant funds the Palm Beach STEM Initiative, which seeks to equip county teachers with the tools and skills they need to prepare students to enter science and health-related fields of study or careers. These health care-related grants come on the heels of a $100,000 award to El Sol, Jupi-ters Neighborhood Resource Center, which Quantums board approved in March. The grant funds the development of the centers Promotores de Salud program. Promotores are trained lay members of the community who help families learn about and con-nect with health-care resources. Promotores improve the health literacy of communities through one-on-one, peer-to-peer education. The board meeting also served as the last official event for outgoing President Kerry Diaz, who is stepping down to spend more time with her husband and three school-age sons. Eric Kelly, who has served as vice president of programs for the foundation since 2009, takes over from Ms. Diaz. Ms. Diaz will continue to serve as a board mem-ber and trustee.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Private philanthropy is not enough to provide educational opportunity for allThe arrival of June signals that a season of new expectations is about to unfold. I ts the month when we set aside, at least temporarily, old business, in favor of new priorities. We shift how we typically spend the majority of our time during the year. We revel in longer days, a more relaxed pace, and more pleasurable pursuits. These departures from the routine may be in modest proportions but their contribution to our well being is extraordinarily important. The summer memories we prolifer-ate linger, like rays of sunshine, when the full-blown weather of work and obligations have returned once again. Of all the memories we gather during June and summers past, gradua-tion from high school is one of the most iconic. The award and receipt of a high school diploma is a milestone in American life that marks an impor-tant transition from adolescence into young adulthood. Communities cel-ebrate and acknowledge graduation day because we believe finishing high school is a prerequisite step in pre-paring young people for a produc-tive life in the world theyll one day inherit. We also deeply value the practical importance of a college educa-tion that should optimally come next. There is a double bottom line of social benefit: A college degree pro-duces an earnings differential over a lifetime that is significant; and a well-educated population is the cor-nerstone of a prosperous democracy. Higher levels of educational attain-ment are a huge factor in raising ones standard of living. Its how we build a strong, middle class „ jobs with ben-efits, food security, adequate health care, affordable housing, educational opportunity; and yes, a vacation now and then. While there may be other paths to get there and many ha ve, that next step from high school to a post-secondary institution is a goal few would argue is increasingly less important. But there is a growing dis-connect between educational equity and the commitment it requires of the nation to achieve it, for all Ameri-cans. The rhetoric that soars over the caps and gowns at commencement ceremonies is hopeful and optimistic; but it is in stark contrast to the harsh realities that confront young people seeking a college education today. In this context, philanthropy is a finger in the dike. Millions do benefit from the generosity of donors who pony up significant gifts to provide scholarship awards, often in the con-text of financial need. This is the time of year when many scholarship awards are made in recognition of the scholastic accomplishment of some of our regions most promising young people. The task is a difficult one, with far more students seeking finan-cial assistance than the funding avail-able to provide it. Its heart breaking to see those aspirations disappointed and crushed. Without some form of financial aid many students cant continue their education. Over $1 trillion in student debt is the Faustian bargain weve made to find the money through other means. Young people going to college today are mortgaging their long-term futures with little chance of ever escaping the burden of repay-ing student loans. Donors who give in support of scholarships are motivat-ed by the powerful transformations that educational opportunity made in their own lives and paying it forward for a chosen few. They dont have to be sold on the idea that education is the gift of a lifetime; they know it is. But private philanthropy will never be sufficient to purchase equity of educational opportunity for all Amer-icans. Nor can this nation hope to fulfill the educational aspirations of each new generation unless there is a diverse pipeline of promising young people provided through a strong sys-tem of quality, public education In 1954, the Supreme Court handed down the Brown v. Board of Education decision. The ruling ended the separate but equalŽ racial segrega-tion codified in U.S. Constitutional law that affected all walks of life and made a mockery of educational equity. These terrible injustices were challenged and overcome in 1954 because the nation held a resounding belief that educational equity was a national responsibility. Today, the public will and politics dont reflect a similar resolve. Brown v. Board of Education did not establish educational equity as a Con-stitutional right. If we want quality education to be within the reach of all Americans, we are going to earn it this time by working for economic justice. In philanthropy-speak, thats change, not charity.

A12 HURRICANE WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYStates coastline and in the Caribbean.Ž While Dr. Gray cannot pinpoint exactly where a hurricane will make landfall, history tells us that the east coast of Florida has been struck by more tropical systems than any other part of the country. And our part of Florida, from the Treasure Coast to the Keys, has had more direct hits from hurricanes than any other section of the state. Last year, we learned that a tropical system doesn t have to make landfall to create big problems for us. Hurricane Isaac came no closer than Key West, yet Palm Beach County suffered some of its worst flooding in history. More than a foot of rain soaked the county, flooding roads, closing schools and businesses and producing millions of dollars in damage. Isaac is an example that tropical storms and hurricanes do more than produce high winds. These powerful systems, which meteorologists call the strongest storms on Earth, often cover hundreds of miles of ocean and stretch thousands of feet into the air. High winds, fresh water flooding, storm surge and isolated tornadoes are just some of the weather hazards a hurri-cane can produce. Still, unlike a tornado, we have plenty of advance notice that a tropical system might be coming our way. Weather sat-ellites can pinpoint a developing storm several days before it might threaten South Florida. Plus, history tells us that August, September and early October are the peak of hurricane season, the most likely time we might be dealing with a storm. Since we have plenty of time to prepare, now is the time to take a few minutes and come up with your hurricane plan. If you need some help go to our web site, WPBF.com, and click on the hurricane section, which is full of help-ful information. Also, tens of thousands of people are already using our free WPBF 25 Hurri-cane Tracker App. Just search WPBFŽ in your app store to get this easy-to-use tool with all the critical information you need before, during and after a storm. Lets hope its a quiet season, but if the predictions turn out to be accu-rate, remember „ you can count on us to keep you one step ahead of the storm. Q SEASONFrom page 1Mercifully, its been eight years since South Floridians have had to grapple with the aftermath of a hurricane, including the angst and despair of watching the contents of their refrigerators and freezers wither and spoil. So its a good time to review some of the lessons learned „ just in case. Here are some food safety basics to keep in mind: „ When a storm warning is issued, fr eeze w ater in containers. Should you lose power, these will help keep things chilled. (If you lose power, place some of the frozen containers in the refrigerator and limit the opening of the doors to retain as much refrigeration as possible). „ Another option: If y ou hav e a gaspowered generator, immediately hook it up to the refrig-erator. (You can also hook up a coffeemak-er.) „ Invest in an applianc e thermometer so you can monitor the tem-perature of the refrig-erator (which should be at about 40 degrees or below) and freezer (0 degrees or below). „ Freeze refrigerat ed items like leftovers, milk, meat and poultry to help keep them at a safe temperature longer. „ Make sure you have plenty of charco al or propane for your grill and/or fuel for a camping stove. „ Eat the most perishable items first. T hese are usually refrigerated items, such as dairy products, eggs, meats and leftovers. „ If you are friendly with neighbors, pool your supplies and eat together. Having multiple grills allows for more diverse „ and more easily produced „ meals, while the socializing helps ease anxiety. „ Stock up on large aluminum chaf ing pans. They are ideal for boiling water and cooking stews, eggs, meats and such. „ Store food on shel ves s afely out of the way of contaminated water in case of flooding. „ Only drink bot tled wa ter if theres been flooding. „ Once you have to resort to canned g oods, rely on seasonings and condiments to add flavor. Following are a couple of recipes to get you started:„ Karen FeldmanWhat to eat when the power goes out Chipotle Chicken Soft Tacos  7 ounces (1package) premium chicken breast, drained  1 cup canned diced new potatoes, drained  1/2 cup canned sweet corn, drained  2 tablespoons sweet onion, minced  1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced  2 to 4 chiles chipotles, depending on taste  3 tablespoons fresh lime juice  1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped  1/4 cup apple cider vinegar  Salt and pepper  Soft tortillas Combine chicken, potatoes, corn, chipotles, and onion in a medium-sized bowl. In a screw-top jar, combine vinegar, lime juice, salt, and cilantro, and shake vigorously. Pour over chicken mixture and toss. Season with pepper. Let sit for 30 minutes to allow ingredients to meld. Mix in avocado before serving. Place in soft tortillas and fold. Serves 2 to 4. Aunt Poppy’s Peach-Raspberry Torte  24 (approximately, depending on size) tea biscuits  30 ounces (2 cans) canned sliced cling peaches, well drained  1 cup table cream  6 tablespoons raspberry preserves  1/2 cup dried raspberries Line bottom of 8 x 8 x 2 pan with two layers of tea biscuits.

Agencies and organizations offer emergency helpHindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. The storms have been quiet since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season, which was the last major hurricane to affect the Palm Beach County area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. South Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprec-edented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, we ve compiled some of the contact information for the bigŽ organizations that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs. Q What’s in a name?

There are six lists that con-tinue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so devastating that its name is retired. BridgesTravel across the area’s bridges becomes unsafe once winds reach gale force, or in excess of 34 mph. Even if physi-cal barricades are not present, drivers should exercise com-mon sense when pre-storm travels involve crossing bridges. Evacuation orders for South Florida’s islands will be issued well in advance of a storm, and those affected should promptly heed such orders, before travel across bridges becomes unsafe and roads are closed off.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 HURRICANE A15The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a busy hurricane season. The news that Floridians could be in for an active hurricane season is nothing out of the ordinary. But just because we have been lucky the past few years with not having much more than a yawn and some spit from Mother Nature doesn t mean she might not storm our way this season. Aside from the essentials „ canned food, batter-ies, flashlights, extra supply of necessary meds, bottled water, cleaning supplies, radio and cell phone „ we have checked in on a few other gadgets that could make getting through hurricane season a breeze. Q Solar power packs and generator at Goal Zero: www.goalzero.comThose looking to keep the power on after a storm can just tap into another force of Mother Natures: sunshine. Solar-gener-ated devices and gizmos offer power with-out batteries, fuel or other non-sustainable sources. Goal Zero features a variety of solar generators that will do anything from charge your cell phone to run a household. Prices range from around $120 to almost $1,800. Q Inflatable tent The CaveŽ at Heimplanet: http://heimplanet.comThose finding themselves with a winddamaged home might need to camp out for a while until their home is secure and safe to reside. If you want to stay on your premises „ in your own back yard, so to speak, then you might consider getting a tent. The days of tedious tent set-ups are gone. There are many choices and types to suit your needs. Heimplanet features an inflatable tent called The Cave.Ž All that is needed to set up this geodesic style tent is an air pump. The tent provides space for three people and baggage. Q Illumaguard home light battery backup: www.electrikusinc.comThere is no need be afraid of being in the dark after a storm with the Illuma-guard device. Plug any table or floor lamp into this compact gadget and lights will stay on despite power loss. This handy gadget even works to keep lights on dur-ing extended power outages. The device runs $59.99. Q Energizer Energi battery backup for cell phone: www.energizerpowerpacks. com/us/If losing cell phone service during and after a major storm is not an option, check out Energizers mini portable charger. The AP750 is a tiny but mighty portable charger that fits on your key ring. It allows you to talk and recharge at the same time. And for the fashionista, the mini charger comes in metallic black or pink hues. The cost is $29.99. Q WaterBOB emergency drinking water storage: www.waterbob.comHaving drinkable water is vital after a major storm comes through. WaterBOB is an emergency storage system that makes use of your bathtub. The storage device is a plastic container made of heavy-duty food-grade plastic that can be filled with 100 gallons of fresh drinking water in a standard bathtub. The water stays fresh and clean for up to four weeks. The system comes with a siphon pump to deliver water into smaller containers. Cost is $21.95. Q For more than 10 years, Dean Mitchell Restoration has provided restoration and remediation services to both residential and commercial customers across Florida. Below are a few questions to help get resi-dents thinking about the storm season that is now here and what Floridians can do before that first hurricane warning. Q. We know there are a number of things to do when you can get that storm warning. What do you advise residents to do early in the season, before a hurricane is on its way? A. There are a number of things you can do to prepare your property or busi-ness prior to a storm. In fact, its almost better to do so before there is even a storm on the horizon. € You should check the exterior of your home for any cracks that may need to be sealed. Doors and windows, even skylights, should be caulked to ensure all worn down seals are filled in to prevent water leaking in to your home. € Have your vegetation trimmed. You dont want to have loose branches when strong winds are coming through. € Find out if you are in an evacuation zone (and find out the evacuation route if so). € Learn the elevation of your property and if you may be in a flood-prone area. If you are, plan an alternate location to stay during the storm. € One that people dont think of, but is important, is to identify a restoration com-pany early. Any reputable company can give a background on their company, and their specialties, as well as quote you on their pricing and will stand by that quote even after a storm with major damage. If you do have any damage you can call them directly and can know you are getting quality work and not inflated pricing. Q: A storm warning has been issued. Now what do I do? A: Once you are certain that a storm is coming, the clock is ticking to prepare your property. All furniture, toys, trash-cans, basically anything that is not secured to the ground should be brought inside. All windows should be covered with hur-ricane sh utters or wood (note: tape will not prevent a window from breaking) and garage doors should be reinforced. If wind enters the garage it could cause costly structural damage. You should also be sure that your supply kit is fully stocked and there is enough food, water and supplies for everyone who will be with you during and after the storm. If you have a gas grill, be sure to turn off the propane. If you have a boat or jet ski, be sure they are secured or in a safe location. Also, make sure you know how to drain your pool if the water level gets too high. Q: Id like additional information on ways I can prepare for hurricane season. Where can I find it? A: For your convenience, weve added a number of helpful checklists, including a supply checklist, a tracking map, and more at www.deanmitchellgroup.com. Addition-ally, there are a number of resources avail-able to you at www.pbcgov.com or www.nhc.noaa.gov. If you need additional assis-tance, give Dean Mitchell Restoration a call at (561) 881-8567 and we can help you ensure your home is ready this hurricane season. To learn more about ways you can prepare early this hurricane season, or to download your own tracking map and checklist, visit www.deanmitchellgroup.com. Q Hurricane gadgets to get you through the stormEarly preparation is key to safety during a stormBY ELLA NAYORenayor@” oridaweekly.com BY PAUL LICATADirector of Business Development, Dean Mitchell Restoration Three things you wouldn’t think of:1. Be sure to seal/caulk around your skylight, doors, and windows. The sealant can wear down over the years and tiny cracks can allow water and debris to enter you home. By sealing them before the rains begin you are taking the extra step to prepare your property. 2. Know how to drain your pool. Many times property owners are worried about protecting their home that they forget to monitor the water levels in their pool. More often than not, ooding from a storm can come from an over owing pool. 3. Research restoration companies before a storm. Any reputable restoration company will share their history, their specialties and their pricing with you upfront. This will help in the event you have damage as you will know what to expect and the company will have already done a site visit to your property before it was damaged. You will have a company you trust and the process will be expedited due to much of the advance work already being done.

A16 HURRICANE WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster pre-paredness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encour-age owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Palm Beach County has an emergency shelter for people and their pets in gymnasium at the West Boyn-ton Recreation Center in Lake Worth, although space „ and therefore, access „ is largely restricted to those in spots where evacuation is manda-tory. People should have a hurricane plan for their pets as well as family but the pet-friendly shelter should not be their plan. It is intended as a last resort if they cannot execute their personal plan, not because they failed to have a plan. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immunizations and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Don t expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guide-lines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the following: Q Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Q Identification : Put pets county licensing tags on their collars as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Ser-vices) is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts, Q Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying box.) Q Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Q Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kitQ Leash and secure collar Q Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Q Water for one week Q Manual can opener Q Bowls for food and water Q Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Q Bedding (blanket or towels for crate) Q Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Q Pets regular medications Q Toys, chewies and other stress relievers Q County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encour-aged) Q Proof of vaccinations Q Photo of pet Q Pet first-aid kit Q Grooming items Web sitesQ www.pbcgov.com/snap: For lost pets in Palm Beach County.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 NEWS A17 HEALTHY LIVINGWe all know people like Harvey Claire hated when Harvey shot his mouth off like that in social gatherings. (Details have been changed.) She knew for a fact he was dead wrong, but he always spoke like he was the wor lds authority. Did Harvey actually believe the others were impressed by his knowledge? It seemed like he had no clue their friends were becoming annoyed. Claire cringed when she saw people rolling their eyes in exasperation. Claire had given up trying to point out her concerns. Whenever she attempted to assert a different viewpoint, Harvey would become defensive, and angrily accuse her of stirring up trouble. Claire had begun to shrink back, holding her thoughts to herself. It was demoralizing that she could no longer have meaning-ful conversations with her husband. We all know people like Harvey. We cant help but feel uncomfortable when they take over our conversations. Weve all been held hostage to effusive exchanges that derail any possibility of meaningful dialog. And, then, there are the extremes when a persons aggran-dizement is so pronounced, every one scatters when they enter a room. Depending on the nature of our relationships, we may have different reac-tions and respond to them quite differ-ently. When we attempt to prove were right,Ž we may truly believe were pro-tecting the image wed like to project to others. Our self…esteem may be tied to the notion that others admire our intel-lect, viewing us as an authority. Further, we may misguidedly conclude that con-ceding to another implies weakness or inferiority. We all know people who like to hear themselves talk, and take pride in show-ing us how much they know. They may genuinely enjoy a spirited discourse and get caught up in defending their point of view. While they can become quite annoying at times, they mean no harm, and may have other wonderful traits. In these instances, we might be able to good-naturedly dismiss their social exuberanceŽ as frustrating behavior we are willing to tolerate. But, then there are the instances where we find the know-it-allŽ behav-ior overbearing and egregious. These may be people who project an air of assumed superiority. Others believe their actions are motivated to maintain power and control. Their smugness may seem offensive, and may preclude any meaningful dialog. And, of course, its not uncommon to unintentionally get embroiled in a polarized cycle, that becomes all about whos right and whos wrong. There may be so much emphasis on trying to convince the other person to see the light,Ž that both parties may lose sight of whats really important. As we all know, its not likely that either party will have much success in getting the other to come around. Invariably, what happens, instead, is that both parties are not only frustrated, but may become enraged. If we feel intimidated or dis-missed by them, we may be inclined to give up or retreat. Relationships may become superficial or estranged because neither dares approach a sub-ject that could become controversial. Some know-it-alls may not have a clue they have antagonized others. Sadly, though, there are those who are well aware theyve struck a nerve, but are indifferent to the feelings of others. They are so self-absorbed and insensitive, they may dismiss others opinions as inferior. Confronting them may be futile. The only way they are likely to be motivated is if they realize they have something to lose. Lets not be overly harsh in maligning some folks who enjoy vigorous dis-course and exuberantly promote their points of view. They make take such pride in demonstrating their knowledge, becoming so eager to defend their posi-tions, they may not realize theyve gone over-board. They would quite possibly become dismayed to know they are perceived as boorish or insensitive. These people would probably be secure enough for a challenger to good-naturedly say: Hey, give me a turn here!Ž Although it could be difficult for them to break their habits, they would prob-ably be willing to compromise to main-tain relationships. A truly open-minded person is receptive to a spirited give and take, and com-municates receptivity to another point of view, even if the positions can be polar opposites. True intimacy requires a trusting environment where we feel safe enough to examine our strengths and weaknesses with humility and sen-sitivity. This can be embarrassing and painful at times, especially when we care a great deal about the other person. However, when we take that risk, we become more approachable and open up the possibilities for deeper sharing and connection. I urge you to consider: Can you be a know-it-all? You may genuinely believe you are open to other peoples points of views, but your demeanor may sug-gest something quite different. And you never know. You might just learn some-thing of value from another person. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Florida municipalities have experienced a slight improvementŽ in their overall financial state, and as a result more than half of cities are now able to implement written policies to budget reserves for emergencies. Most Florida cities now say they offer some type of economic development incentive „ most often, expedited permitting „ in a bid to attract even greater economic growth. These are among the findings of the inaugural State of the CitiesŽ report issued by the Florida League of Cities Center for Municipal Research and Innovation, based on statewide data from the Leagues 2012 CityStats Survey. The report focuses on trends and key issues related to municipal governments in Florida. With data and statistics from more than four out of five Florida municipalities, the State of the CitiesŽ report provides a comprehensive look at the current status of Florida cities in areas such as employment and economy, budgets, services and utilities and public safety. The report notes that as of last year, Floridas 19 million people were divided almost exactly between those who live in cities, towns or villages (9,603,954, or 50.3 percent) and those who live in unin-corporated areas (9,470,480, or 49.7 per-cent). The average Florida municipality is currently 78 percent developed, and more than one-third are more than 90 percent built out, the report shows. For the first time in several years, Floridas municipalities are showing signs of improve-ment,Ž said Florida League of Cities President and Sweetwater Mayor Manny Maroo. Our cit-ies were particularly hard-hit by unemployment and a beleaguered real estate market, so its good to see that overall economic gains are working their way to the local level.Ž Some of the trends highlighted in the State of the Cities report include: € An increase in economic development incentives to attract new employers. The most common incentives were expedited permitting (35 percent), followed by favorable land develop-ment regulations (24 percent) and tax breaks or incentives (20 percent). € More municipalities preparing for financial emergencies, such as hurricanes or other natural disasters, by budgeting for reserves. Approxi-mately 52 percent of cities have adopted a writ-ten policy on budgeting for reserves, ensuring that they are saving a certain amount of money each year with defined policies that allow admin-istrators to budget equal amounts each year. € A decrease in the number of services provided by con-tract. According to the survey, the top three ser-vices provided directly by cities are parks, police and fire. Some 69 per-cent of municipalities provide city -run police services, while 55 percent provide fire ser-vices directly by city-employed firefighters. According to the report, the largest Florida municipal population increases from 2010 to 2012 were in Miami (+15,243), Orlando (+7,102), Sweetwater (+6,464), Tampa (+6,062) and Cape Coral (+5,879).

A22 WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com Mite-y tasty The Food and Drug Administration proposed recently to limit the quan-tity of tiny mitesŽ that could occupy imported cheese, even though living, crawling mites are a feature desired by aficionados. (Cheese is absolute-ly alive!Ž proclaimed microbiologist Rachel D utton, w ho runs the cheese laboratoryŽ at Harvard University.) In fact, cheese is home to various molds, bacteria and yeasts, which give it flavor, and sellers routinely use blowers to expel excessive critters, but the FDA now wants to limit them to six bugs per square inch. However, according to a May report on NPR, lovers of some cheeses, especially the French Mimo-lette, object, asserting both an indif-ference to the sight of mites creeping around „ and a fear of taste-loss (since the mites burrow into the hunk, aerat-ing it and extending the flavor). Q PerspectiveQ In May, the Florida House of Representatives adjourned for the year with-out assessing themselves even a nominal increase in health insurance premiums for their own taxpayer-funded deluxe coverage, which will remain at $8.34 per month for individuals ($30 for fami-lies). Several days earlier, the House had voted to reject several billion dollars in federal grants for extending health insurance coverage to about a million more poor people in the state s Medicaid program. The House premiums are even lower than those of state senators and rank-and-file state employees, and lower than the premiums of Medicaid recipients who have the ability to pay. Q IroniesQ Energy West, the natural gas supplier in Great Falls, Mont., had tried recently to raise awareness of leaks by distributing scratch-and-sniff cards to residents, demonstrating gass distinc-tive, rotten-egg smell. In May, workers cast aside several cartons of leftover cards, which were hauled off and dis-posed of by crushing „ which released the scent and produced a massive blan-ket of odor over downtown Great Falls, resulting in a flurry of panicked calls to firefighters about gas leaks. Q The Ypsilanti, Mich., City Council voted in May on a resolution that would have required the members always to vote either yesŽ or noŽ (to thus reduce the recent, annoying number of abstainŽ votes). The resolution to ban abstaining failed because three of the seven members abstained. Q Doctors told a newspaper in Stockholm in April that at least one of Swe-dens premier modeling agencies, look-ing for recruits, had been caught pass-ing out business cards adjacent to the countrys largest eating-disorder clinic, forcing the clinic to change its rules on patients taking outside walks. Q The United Nations Conference on Disarmament, a multilateral forum on arms control agreements, was chaired beginning May 27 (until June 23) by Iran, which, for that time, at least, had the awkward job of overseeing reso-lutions on nuclear non-proliferation, which the country is widely thought to be ignoring. Q Compelling explanations Q Ruben Pavon was identified by surveillance video in Derry, N.H., in April snatching a grill from the front porch of a thrift store. Mr. Pavon explained to police that the stores name, Find-ers Keepers,Ž indicated to him that the objects were free for the taking and admitted that he had previously taken items from the porch. Q In May, Los Angeles police bought back 1,200 guns in one of the peri-odic U.S. buy-back programs, but they declined to accept the pipe bomb a man said he wanted to sell. This is not a pipe-bomb buyback,Ž said Chief Charlie Beck. Pipe bombs are illegal ... The man was promptly arrested. Q John Casey, 51, was caught by security staff at an Asda supermarket in Washington, England, last October after allegedly stealing a slab of beef. He was convicted in May even after offering the compelling explanation that he had concealed the beef underneath other purchases not to avoid paying for it, but only because the sight of the raw meat gave him flashbacksŽ of his dead grandmother, who had passed away of a blood clot when Casey was a child. Q The litigious societyQ Keith Judd filed a lawsuit in Iowa in May, in essence to invalidate the 2012 election by having President Obama officially declared a Kenyan and not an American. Mr. Judd filed the papers from a federal penitentiary in Texas, where he is serving 17 years for threaten-ing a woman he believed to be a cloneŽ of the singer Stevie Nicks, because Ms. Nicks (or the clone) had tried to sabo-tage his home improvement company. (Bonus Fact: In the 2012 Democratic presidential primary in West Virginia, Mr. Judd, a write-in candidate, defeated President Obama in nine counties and lost the state by only 33,000 votes.) Q Edward Kramer, co-founder of the annual Atlanta fantasy-character convention Dragon*Con, was arrested in 2000 for allegedly having sex with underage boys, but has yet to stand trial in Georgia because he has engineered a never-ending set of legal delays „ if not because of his version of Orthodox Judaism that limits his diet and activi-ties, then it his allegedly poor health. (As soon as he puts on an orange jump-suit,Ž said prosecutor Danny Porter, he becomes an invalid,Ž requiring a wheel-chair and oxygen tank.) In 2011, after managing to get house arrest,Ž he vio-lated it by being caught with an under-age boy. Lately, according to a May Atlanta Journal-Constitution report, he files an average of three demands per day from his Gwinnett County, Ga., lockup, each requiring painstak-ing review before being rejected. Mr. Kramer still owns about one-third of Dragon*Con, whose current officials are mortified that they cannot expel a man they consider a child molester.

Tune to Classical South Florida on the radio or online. Its in your nature. Insider trading is back in the limelightInvestors have a right to a level playing field in which they have confidence that: market prices are for real; that no one has unjust advantage; that proper disclosures are made timely; and that the game is not riggedƒ in addition to price transparency and high degree of liquidity. While such attributes are true for all financial markets, there are characteris-tics of the securities markets that make them unique. They require special safe guarding the investors from securities fraud. Whether parading in traditional and newly disguised forms, securities fraud is very destructive to the long term integrity of the securities markets. There are two governmental legal bodies that can prosecute cases in which investors have been harmed: the Depart-ment of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. There are impor-tant differences in what they can do and how they enforce. According to the group Occupy the SEC, the DOJ is responsible for all crimi-nal enforcement and for civil enforce-ment of the anti-bribery provisions with respect to issuers.Ž The SEC brings civil enforcement actions, and can obtain injunctions, orders of disgorgement, and orders barring defendants from the securities industryƒ. (And) often the DOJs criminal complaints track the civil complaints filed by the SEC.Ž But the SEC cannot bring criminal charges. What is the flavor of recent DOJ prosecutions? Surely, there were crimes against investors in the mortgage crisis. What happened to the bad guys who harmed innocent investors? Not much of anything happened to them. Though well within the scope of the DOJ to have brought criminal charges against many of the corporate players in the mortgage crisis, the DOJ chose otherwise. Its enforcement pat-tern seems to be: big institutions and big fraudsters get a pass. Harsh assessment of the DOJ under Obama? Actually not, as this administra-tions own attorney general, Eric Holder, has offered reasoning behind too big to jailŽ thinking, as follows: I am con-cerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a nega-tive impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy. ƒ And I think that is a function of the fact that some of these institutions have become too large.Ž Since that March 7, 2012 (grotesque) comment, Mr. Holder has been back pedalling „ big time. Beyond Holder and the DOJ, securities enforcement lays squarely with the SEC, the only government agency with the sole focus of protecting the inves-tor. The SEC regularly brings enforce-ment cases involving: insider trad-ing (unfair trading, later explained in detail); breaches of public trust (where a public official uses offices for per-sonal gain); accounting fraud by publicly traded companies; Ponzi schemes, etc. The self-serving manipulations of some managements (e.g., excessive grants and payments of options, salaries, perks, severance and retirement packages) are surely repulsive and operate to share-holder detriment ƒ.but most often these actions are not illegal. The most interesting and impactful SEC cases are insider trading cases (trading based on material and nonpub-lic information.) Insider trading gener-ally brings about unjust trading gains. Having inside information is not fraud, since insiders have it all the time. Infor-mation is nonpublic until it is widely disseminated by the company through, for example, press releases, 10Ks, 10Qs, etc. Insider trading takes many forms. It can involve information provided by a senior corporate officer to a neighbor, who traded; by an investment banker to a money manager, who traded; by a secretary who has read corporate docu-ments and told household members, who traded; by an accountant of a pub-licly traded firm who tells a fellow coun-try club member, who traded; by a scien-tist who has confidential information on drug clinical trials and now consultsŽ for a hedge fund, which traded. Every once a while, an insider trading case comes along that offers legend-ary Wall Street drama. (Sometimes the drama even makes its way into movie production.) The case(s) surrounding SAC, a multibillion dollar hedge fund (founded by reputed trader Stephen A. Cohen) has been in the cross hairs of SEC Enforcement for six years. According to the New York Times Dealbook, Nine former or current SAC employees have been tied to insider trading while at the (SAC) fund; four of them have pleaded guilty. Earlier this year, SAC agreed to pay $616 million to settle two civil cases brought against it by the SEC.Ž Though there has been no case filed against the fund or its founder in the six years. There is good reason to believe that will soon change, since the five-year statute of limitations for charging SAC/Cohen based on a former employee Matthew Martomas insider trading will expire in July. The most developments in the case are that, SAC sent a letter to its inves-tors indicating that their cooperation (with the SEC) is no longer uncondi-tional.Ž There are now five SAC execu-tives (Cohen and four others) called to testify before the grand jury. Cohen is expected to take the Fifth Amendment and be silent. While seemingly an option for the other executives to take the Fifth, such might not be the case. If the DOJ really wants SAC and Cohen, then the DOJ might offer the four other executives immunity from criminal prosecution because, as the NYT explains, immunity supplants the Fifth Amendment, so the person must testify or risk being held in contempt, which usually means going to jail until the end of the grand jurys term.Ž Such a case will be an interesting financial press drama and it might go down as a landmark in securities enforcement.

On May 15, St. Marks chief financial officer, Ron McElhone, and devel-opment director, Michaela Kennedy, were overwhelmed when they opened a Fed-Ex envelope containing a check from an anonymous donor to its WE WILL!

A note was included with the donation, which stated, please do not issue an acknowledgement or tax receiptŽ for this gift. This nameless donation of $1 million came just weeks after St. Marks announced a gift of $1.5 million from Palm Beach Gardens residents John and Jeanette Staluppi. We are deeply grateful for this gift, and this extraordinarily generous donor can be assured that this gift will bring life-changing impact to the church, school and community,Ž the Rev.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 REAL ESTATE A27 Lang Realty has been the Sales Leader of properties in excess of $400,000 in Palm Beach County for the last 5 years. With 10 of“ce locations, we can cover all of your Real Estate needs, call Canadians flock to Palm Beach County to buy homes — and are bringing friends Canadians are still coming to Florida. From the recent reports, we should see even more coming over the next several months and even years. Accord-ing to a report released by the BMO Financial Group, more than 500,000 Canadians presently own property in Florida. They continue to be the larg-est international buyers in the state and they account for almost one-third of all foreign real estate purchases. There are several reasons for this still taking place; the Canadian dollar is about 10 percent above fairŽ value versus the U.S. dollar and the average home price in Florida is nearly half the price of a similar home in Canada. Add the warm weather, sandy beaches and sunny days and I do not see this trend ending anytime soon. My husband and I, along with other Fite Shavell & Associates agents, have been advertising in several of the Cana-dian publications for quite some time „ specifically in Montreal and Toronto. These are the two prominent areas that we can track prospects who have purchased on a continual basis. I have received a few calls from the advertis-ing, but I always say, It only takes one.Ž In this instance, one client turned into three sales. All three clients were longtime friends in the Toronto area and when one decided to purchase, the other two followed. Jim Smith, one of the purchasers, said, Why would I buy anywhere else but the Palm Beach area? It is a fairly short flight, the weather is beautiful, I can golf, swim and my wife can play tennis outside anytime we choose. If I were to purchase the same home in Canada, I would have paid double the cost for the home, triple the cost for fees and the weather is cold and unpredictable.Ž Jim and his wife purchased in a country club community that does not offer boating, but they love the water and will be looking into marinas and dockage next season when they arrive. The second sale was to a friend of Jim s, who came to visit Jim and his wife for a weekend. He and his family ended up staying an extra week to look at homes. They didnt want to jump in and purchase in the same community, so they looked around at other available areas before making a decision. By the end of their visit, they had signed a contract on a home in the same community and are closing the end of June. The third friend decided to rent for the season next year, and the family was able to write a rental agreement before they returned to Toronto for the sum-mer. They still have their eye on any new properties that may come avail-able. They have made it very clear that if a home becomes available that meets their criteria, they will fly down and consider purchasing. This couple was more interested in boating so they are considering waterfront property and realize they will need to make a quick decision should anything become avail-able. This sounds like the old saying, Birds of a feather, flock together.Ž This is very true in real estate and especially in destination areas like ours. Friends want to enjoy time with familiar faces and people they know, in addition to meeting a new circle of friends. When they are comfortable in their surround-ings, they will refer others. This is par-ticularly dominant when the financial investment is very strong, as it is now. I am looking forward to meeting more of Jim and Nancys friends this upcoming season and helping them become a part of our community.

FloridaBestHomeBuys.com EvergreneHomes.com Consider political imagery in context of the times Political slogans and pictures from the past can sometimes be confusing because modern times suggest a differ-ent meaning. In the 1900 U.S. presiden-tial campaign, William McKinley used the slogans Protection and ProsperityŽ and Four more years of the full dinner pail.Ž His campaign often pictured a workman s lunchbox as a symbol of jobs. One of his most famous butt ons, if first seen today, would startle a 2013 voter. The button shows a strange boxlike con-tainer „ the lunch pail of the day. Inside the pail is a building with smoke pouring from the smokestacks and the words: Do you smoke? Yes, since 1896.Ž The smoking chimneys on the building repre-sent work being done inside, just as the lunch pail means jobs. Today the smoke could be misinterpreted as pollution, and the answer given to Do you smoke?Ž would suggest a health problem. The rare button sold for $1,948 at a recent Hakes Auction. Its a reminder that both language and symbols can change with time and events, so collectors should be careful not to interpret objects or words from the past through modern eyes. Q: My small electric mantel clock has a metal embossed design under the dial. The design includes a seaplane with a propeller that rotates when the clock is running. Theres also a sailing ship, a man standing near a tepee and the words Polar Bird.Ž The case is Bakelite and like new. I cant find a manu-facturers name. Do you know who made it and what its worth today? A: A clock matching yours auctioned last year for $119. Clocks like it, with extra parts that move when the clock is running, are called ani-mated clocks.Ž Yours probably dates from the 1930s, the decade follow-ing Adm. Richard Byrds first flights to both the north and south poles. Some sources say the clock was manufactured by the New Jersey Clock Co. of Newark, N.J., with an electric motor made by the Hammond Clock Co. of Chicago. Others say its a Chronart clock, which may have been a trade name used by the New Jersey Clock Co.Q: I inherited a ceramic tile mural made up of 24 4-inch tiles. The tiles are not cemented together, but when laid out they picture a large sailing ship, two small-er sailboats and a lighthouse. One tile is signed Pillsbury.Ž I think the tiles came from a pottery in Ohio. Any information and present value would be appreciated.A: Hester W. Pillsbury (1862-1951) was a decorator who worked at Roseville and Weller, both Ohio potteries. Rose-ville Pottery was organized in Rose-ville, Ohio, in 1890 and opened a plant in nearby Zanesville in 1898. Roseville made pot-tery until 1954. Weller Pottery started out in Fultonham, Ohio, moved to Zanesville in 1882 and closed in 1948. Hester Pillsbury began working in about 1904 and worked at Weller after 1918. A tile picture like yours, made up of 24 signed tiles, could be worth $1,000 or more. Q: I just bought a piece of Brooklin Pottery. I thought it was from New York but I am told it is Canadian. Do you know anything about it? Are there many popular collectibles from Canada that arent well known in the states? A: Of course. Collectors in the United States and Canada started looking at their own countries after soldiers saw all the antiques in Europe during World War II. The first books and publications about collecting in the United States concentrated on English porcelains and furniture, Georgian silver, prints, Staf-fordshire figures and Chippendale fur-niture that could have been made in many countries. American pieces were wanted by very few. Our trip to Eastern Canada from Ohio in the late 1950s was disappointing because we hoped to see Canadian things in antiques shops. We found a few in Nova Scotia sell-ing early Canadian furniture, but shops in the large cities looked like ours „ they were filled with mainly English or Asian pieces. But by the 1970s, Cana-dians had become interested in their own antiques and history and there were Canadian publications and shows. Brooklin Pottery was founded in 1952 by Theo and Susan Harlander. They had emigrated from Germany. Some of their best-known studio pottery is made with incised pictures of people and geomet-ric designs in pale earthtones. The busi-ness was closed by 1987. Tip: Dont use water on turquoise objects or jewelry because water is destructive to turquoise. Instead, wipe turquoise with a microfiber cloth.

July 1, 8 p.m. „ Moment of Grace,Ž by Bob Bowersox, hosted by TheatreXP, performing at Red Barn Theatre, 319 Duval St., Key West. When three friends meet to toast the passing of a fourth, they find themselves confronted with a surprising truth about the man. Local works take stage at area theaters this summer BY BILL HIRSCHMANSpecial to Florida WeeklySEE STAGE, A35 XAmid blockbuster musicals and dysfunctional family dramas, one of the disappearing genres of theater and much of art is the slow, sweet sad song. And as Palm Beach Dramaworks slow, sweet sad production of Dancing at LughnasaŽ shows, nobody sings them like the Irish. Like many Dramaworks shows, it requires a 21st-century audience to downshift the metabolism a bit, but the reward is a melancholy but oddly affirming elegy that acknowledges the universal pain of life with a rueful and compassionate smile, echoing that other great memory play, The Glass Menag-erie.Ž Brian Friels Tony and Olivier-winning drama is not set in the jaunty Ireland of Riverdance, the fabled Glocca Morra or even Martin McDonaghs darkly comic Inishmore.Ž This is the mournful land of Frank McCourts Angelas Ashes.Ž Its a portrait of people seemingly cursed by fate, in this case, the five mostly middle-aged Mundy sisters eking out a hardscrabble life in a rural village in County Donegal in 1936. The tale is told in flashback by the grown narrator Michael Mundy, who then was a 7-year-old child born out of wedlock to one sister and is being raised by the five women as one. The play focuses on crucial days in late summer when events will unravel their lives.Dramaworks offers sweet slow dance with “Lughnasa”Irish elegy COURTESY PHOTOS/ALICIA DONELAN ABOVE: Gretchen Porro and Cliff Burgess dance as Julie Rowe and Meghan Moroney look on in a scene from Palm Beach Dramaworks’ pro-duction of “Dancing at Lughnasa.”LEFT: Julie Rowe (left) is the eldest sister in a family of five daughters in “Dancing at Lughnasa.” With her are Erin Joy Schmidt and Margery Lowe.

Im spending the summer in a remote mountain village in the south of France. Its the kind of place that can feel like paradise „ if you have the right tem-perament and an ability to juggle soli-tude and slow-paced village living. For more urban personalities, people who like the glitter and bustle of city life, this might be a kind of hell. Which is why I cant figure out why Christophe keeps coming back. Hes been here seven times in the last three years. A doctor from Belgium, he wears expensive loafers and well-cut Armani coats. I havent seen him go for a hike once since we got here. Hes the kind of man who enjoys high-priced restaurants, hard-to-find wine and top-notch theater, none of which exist in this village. We dont even have a place to buy a cup of coffee; a grocery truck comes in once a week with provisions. So what is this bourgeois city-dweller doing here? I spent the first week stumped, but a clue came early in the next. Christophe made plans to attend a jazz concert in a neighboring village and took sev-eral of the women from the retreat. The morning after the concert the women were all giggles, and when Christophe appeared in the kitchen, they doted on him. He is such a gentleman,Ž one woman said. She rubbed his back as he poured himself a cup of coffee, and I thought: I should have known. But later in the week, when Christophe invited another woman and me to tour a nearby vineyard, I saw for myself that he was a complete gentle-man „ opening car doors, adjusting the seat warmers so that we would be comfortable. There was nothing lecherous in any of it; just a charming attention. After the wine tasting, the three of us went to dinner in a nearby restaurant. Chris-tophe kept us entertained over bottles of ros, and at the end of the evening, he picked up the check. On the way home, the three of us rode in companionable silence, and he seemed pleased with himself as he drove. I tried to imagine what he must be like in his other life, a day-to-day that includes a wife and teenage daughter, a large medi-cal practice and all the stresses of daily liv-ing. It was hard to imagine he brought the same gentleness to that existence. What should we call you?Ž the other woman asked from the back seat as we neared home. Our chauffeur? Our guide?Ž She thought for a moment. Our hero.Ž We both laughed, and Christophe beamed. Earlier in the week, after the jazz concert, I had taken him to be a grand seducer, the sort of continental lover who knows how to ply women with rich food and good wine. But now, as we neared our remote mountain village, I realized that the appeal for him has nothing to do with seduction. Here he is free to be his best self, a man stripped of the weight of the real world, suddenly capable of a kindness and generosity that I think surprises even him.

Ms. Salo-moni and the master craftsmen of the Palm Beach Coun-ty Woodturners will set up their lathes and turn chunks of harvested and rare woods into finely crafted masterpieces before your very eyes. Ms. Salomoni, a gallery artist and Boynton Beach resident, is the only woman wood turner among a pantheon of seasoned male master woodworkers. She grabs her chainsaw, responding to wood alerts,Ž and travels to the sites of fallen or felled trees. Taking both the inflorescence of the palms and the precious woods of the forests, she brings them home and cures them. Weav-ing the fluorescents into baskets and turn-ing the woods into finials, bowls and works of abstract art, Ms. Salomoni has reached a depth of fine art perfection that crosses the boundary of the craftŽ dilemma. Her pre-cious wood inlays and resin fills allow for intricate textural design then enhanced by carving, cutting and burning. She paints her gouges and tools pink so that the men in the PBC-Woodturn-ers group will leave them alone. She no lon-ger loses her tools. Among the master craftsmen joining the Chips Off the Old Block are Gerhard Schewnke, Carl Schnei-der, Lee Sky, Tim Rowe and Tim Carter. Each is a rec-ognized artist in his own right with works spanning the gamut of wood artistry and ingenuity. ClayGlassMetalStone Cooperative Gallery is sponsored by the Flamingo Clay Studio, a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists. The gallery is at 15 S. J St., Lake Worth. Hours are Sunday through Tuesday, 10 a.m.-5p.m. Wednesday thru Saturday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Gallery openings are the first and third Friday of each month from 6-9 p.m. with many special events in-between.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A33 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarMax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. 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 Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia — dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting 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 con-sumer 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 Wittmann 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 affordable 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 inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you don’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

A34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 6-12, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY There are no spoilers for Mr. Friel; it is thematically essential that Michael reveal to us bit by bit what the char-acters cannot see coming: disillusion-ment, shattered dreams, poverty, ill-ness and death. Mr. Friel wants us to cherish what few joys we have while we have them, above all the blessings of family. Michael seems to yearn to hug his long-dead loved ones because their loss reminds him how we don t appreciate life as we are living it, as Thornton Wilder warned us in Our Town.Ž Under J. Barry Lewis brilliant direction of an inspired pitch-perfect cast, establishing the tone, mood, characters and relationships is more important than creating a driving narrative. As Michael tells the audience, In that memory, atmosphere is more real than incident and everything is simultane-ously actual and illusory.Ž As a result, this may not be every audience mem-bers cup of tea. Their loss. We meet the five sisters who have created a close affectionate unit, but each mourns lost chances at love or at least a life of their own. They are imprisoned together by cruel vagaries of fate that have cauterized the part of their soul where hope resides. The oldest, Kate (Julie Rowe), has become the matriarch since the death of their parents. As the familys pri-mary breadwinner as an educator, Kate shoulders the heavy burden of leader-ship and camouflages her own pain with a schoolteachers sternness rein-forced with a devout Catholicism. Only slightly younger, Maggie (Meghan Maroney) is the family jokester and cook with a love for rais-ing her lovely voice to croon a popu-lar tune. But in one reverie, Maroney reveals that the past-her-prime Maggie mourns a glimpse of true love. Chris (Gretchen Porro) is the mother of Michael, having been seduced by the considerable charms of the neer-do-well Gerry (Cliff Burgess) who makes blithely intermittent appearances filled with empty promises and doomed pipe dreams. Her shameŽ is one of several factors distancing the family from the community. She is alternately morose at her imprisonment and overjoyed when Gerry makes a visit. Deeply in unrequited love with Gerry is the plain, ineffably sad Agnes (Margery Lowe in her finest perfor-mance we can remember) who is in visible but restrained agony whenever Gerry appears. Rose (the always wonderfully quirky Erin Joy Schmidt) is developmentally disabled, although that is not made clear until someone references it. She just seems to be a lovely, over-enthu-siastic young woman who imagines a local boy is sweet on her. Protecting her is yet another reason the family is disconnected from the village. When Agnes proposes the sisters go into town to a dance, Kate stomps on their ecstatic reaction, saying that the vil-lage would laugh at a family of older women cavorting. She actually means they would laugh at Roses odd antics. Complicating matters is the return of Uncle Jack (the affecting John Leon-ard Thompson), a missionary priest who has been called home after three decades of ministering to tribes in Uganda, ostensibly because his mind is deteriorating after a bout of malaria „ but, in fact, for another reason. The evening is presided over by Michael (Declan Mooney) who speaks to us and, from the sidelines, speaks for his invisible 7-year-old self when the boy speaks with his aunts in 1936. If you are familiar with the play, you know there is a celebrated scene in which the sisters join in an impromptu dance to a tune on the radio. In the hands of Mr. Lewis, this cast and cho-reographer Lynnette Barkley, it is an undiluted triumph. Having spent a half-hour of stage time depicting their repressed gloom, each sister, one by one, issues a feral scream from their guts and erupts into an individual idiosyncratic dance. But its not their abandoned movement that rips the play open because other than the sur-prisingly graceful Agnes, theyre not agility personified. What overwhelms us is the expressions on their faces that depict an explosion of long-suppressed passion. While that passion is mostly frustration and even sorrow, there is such joy in its finally being unleashed to exorcise the pain. Its thrilling. Once again, a cast under Mr. Lewis direction gives lessons in acting. In this case, class, notice how they lis-ten intently to what is happening elsewhere in the scene even when they have no dialogue. See how they silently react, without calling attention to themselves, to what is being said by other characters. Watch how dog-gedly they focus on knitting, ironing, slicing bread while soaking in what is occurring around them, even when „ especially when „ they are in shadow and featured characters are interacting in the lights on the other side of the stage. While they all excel in this, Ms. Lowes face perpetually communicates the range of pain and pleasure simmer-ing under the surface. Mr. Thompson, who has played everything from the venal Teach in American BuffaloŽ to the preacher in Candida,Ž deserves a special nod for his heart-breaking scenes of a once-fine now-addled mind trying to find words. Even better is his work in Mr. Friels brilliant monologue describing a Ugandan ceremony. Thompson makes it clear that Jack has surrendered his repressive Christian faith to the more joyous native religion „ the real rea-son for his recall. If there is a secondary theme lurking, it may lie there. The repression and prejudices of a strictured society lie at the heart of many of the Mundy fam-ilys woes. Kate may condemn Maggies singing of pagan songs,Ž disapprove of Chris continuing to see Gerry and horrified by Jacks praise of African rites, but they are clearly the happiest members of this troubled family. Mr. Friels work is rarely performed these days; his early Philadelphia, Here I Come!Ž used to be a regional theater staple and his later Faith HealerŽ received a transcendent pro-duction at Inside Out Theatre in Fort Lauderdale. He embraces the everyday speech of everyday people with a flair for lyrical metaphors that portend an ominous future. Thanks to Dramaworks for reviving this quiet portrait of wounded souls.

Mrs. Pinello says that she lives by this Maya Angelou quote everyday as her motto for busi-ness in making her customers feel wel-come and having the ultimate in the kitchenŽ experience. Mrs. Pinello, originally from the New York borough of Queens, says she hasn t always worked in the culinary industry. In fact, Mrs. Pinello attended St. Johns College, where she graduated with a degree in psychology and biology in 1979. After college, Mrs. Pinello landed a job with Ziff Davis publishing company, where she worked in sales management. She says her career had taken off in a way that she had never expected. After moving to Florida 20 years ago, Mrs. Pinello continued to work for a legal publisher, but cooking wasnt something that was foreign to her. Food was the center of my family,Ž she says. My mom was an awesome cook and she would never put a bad meal on the table.Ž Growing up, Mrs. Pinello watched her mom cook almost every day and collect different recipes from neighbors to edu-cate herself on cuisine from around the world. She says that being in the kitchen was always a hobby that she loved to partake in and after a 28-year career in publishing a sales management; it was time for the next chapter of her life. After writing a cookbook with her sister and giving a cooking lesson at a local culinary shop, a new concept was on the rise. Combining a passion for cooking with creativity, Mrs. Pinello opened In the Kitchen six years ago where she focuses on work as a person-al chef and hosting cooking classes and private parties. During her classes, Mrs. Pinello emphasizes on using fresh and natural ingredients as well as the finest quality meats, poultry and seafood. She says customers are free to be interactive with her as she cooks, or just sit back and do all the tasting. With an emphasis on fresh and natural ingredients as well as the finest quality meats, poultry and seafood, cus-tomers are free to be interactive with Mrs. Pinello as she cooks, or just sit back and do all the tasting. Though In the Kitchen offers a quaint, homey atmosphere, Mrs. Pinello also works as a personal chef, preparing food for customers to eat at home. By doing personal cheffing, it is an amazing feeling to know that I can provide meals for the entire family and bring them together at the dinner table.Ž Name: Lenore Pinello Age: 56 Original Hometown: New York borough of Queens Restaurant: In the Kitchen, 389 Tequesta Drive, in Gallery Square North, Tequesta; 747-7117 Mission: I want everyone to have a great time when they come here.

Q Craft beer fest is brewing at PGA National SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Dish: Crispy Turkey Sandwich The Place: PDQ, 2015 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; 594-1906 or eatpdq.com The Price: $6.99 (includes a side and a drink) The Details: PDQ stands for People Dedicated to Quality. Visitors can see that from the moment they step into the space, which once was the site of a Shells seafood restaurant. PDQs menu is based on the humble chicken tender, fried, grilled and served on its own or tossed in a salad or stacked on a sandwich. We opted to try the turkey, which was crisp and juicy. Its covered in a spicy sauce that offers a kick of sriracha, that Asian all-purpose hot sauce. For a side, we chose the creamy blueberry coleslaw. The berries offered a sweet counterpoint to the tang of the slaws dressing. We could have tried the sandwich grilled with traditional spices and served cranberry, but that will have to wait until next time. And, yes, there will be a next time.
