Thats the aim of newly proposed laws now before Congress, laws designed in large part to make enforcement of immi-gration policy more effective. At the same time, those laws might also make American real estate markets more lucrative, especially in Florida. Sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans such as Floridas Sen. Marco Rubio, the legislation would open the American door wide to foreign buyers of properties valued at $500,000 or more. Such buyers would have to be 55, have health insurance, pass a criminal back-ground check and maintain ownership of their properties while remaining in the U.S. for at least six months of the year to benefit from the new rules. If buyers meet those qualifications, temporary visas would be automatically grant-ed, along with the opportunity to apply for permanent visas. Foreigners who buy or rent properties valued at $250,000 or more, meanwhile, could extend the 180-day visa which is now the maximum allowed by law, to 240 days.

But that did not prevent her from watching,Ž as she puts it, the womens and the mens tennis finals in the French Open on her television last week, while the iconic voice of John McEnroe purred away in the background. There, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal triumphed on clay beneath cool, overcast French skies at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris. I know because I tuned in to the live Sunday morning broadcast to see what my mother was seeing without the aid of eyes, in Colorado. Nadal was hammering balls with both forehand and backhand like a machine, a slashing lefty mounted on quick feet in a torso that manages to be both muscular and sinewy at the same time. Tennis is a sport my mother has never played. I doubt shes ever held a tennis rack-et. But she loves the sound of the action, the often-hushed commentary, the sense of what might be happening „ the sense that people have reached a pivotal moment. Theyre out there riding solo and trying like hell, and thats something she under-stands. So it startled me when NBC host Ted Robinson pointed out that Nadal, the great-est player ever to set foot on a clay court, reads self-help books now, apparently to achieve even greater perfection. There was a pause after Robinsons comment, while McEnroe, who once won seven Grand Slam tennis titles, looked for some-thing nice to say. Really?Ž he replied, trying to keep any hint of sarcasm out of his voice. That would be pretty hard to do.Ž In summer, my mother listens to Colorado Rockies baseball games almost every night, too, because shes a tennis fan by curi-osity, but a baseball fan by love of the game. Although she set a record for total number of push-ups without stopping in 1946 at the University of Colorado in Boulder (is that a sport?), her game was baseball. There, the closest any human has ever come to perfection with a bat is four out of 10. Never mind help „ self-help, steroidal help or any other kind. Baseball is a game of failure. Knowing that, my mothers cowboy father kept some ancient mitts, bats and a couple of balls in the spring house by the cabin where she grew up, on a sprawling mountain cattle ranch 30 miles from town. They all played after supper. In those days she could still see. Her vision, increasingly diminished by retinitis pigmentosa as she grew older, didnt quit her completely until she entered her 40s. By the time she was 10 years old, I suspect, my mothers notion of self-help had become inalterable: you helped yourself by helping everybody else around you. Since everybody was always trying to help you, you did everything you could to make sure they didnt have to. On that ranch and across tens of thousands of acres, jobs were not always assigned by gender. My grandfather helped by scrubbing the kitchen and doing some of the cooking. His five daughters helped at various times by riding, building fence, branding and chopping wood, like my grandmother. She helped by cooking on a wood stove in the kitchen for all comers, including guests and cow hands. They also pumped water, main-tained gardens and dug potatoes. When my mothers two brothers helped by going off to World War II, it was an almost all-female operation. But my grandparents sent all five of their daughters to college, to the University of Colorado. They thought the girls should be educated „ in part, I imagine, so that if they wanted to do something besides marry a rancher, they could help themselves to do it. Standing on your own, to them „ call it self help, call it rugged individualism, call it an education or an attitude or riding the line solo „ was a cherished virtue. I think my mother likes tennis in part because the players seem to be riding the line solo, too. But she also likes the sound of something she shared with my father, who died 14 years or 14 minutes ago, Im not sure which, and never played tennis or golf but tuned into them, occasionally. He was a curious man, curious about worlds that were not his. Shes a curious woman, which is why she helps herself by readingŽ history and fiction in recorded books from Colorado Services for the Blind. Curiosity, passion „ those can help you ride solo. But in many ways, my mother is never alone, which is the paradox about people riding solo. In her case, she lives with books, radio and television, her resilient patience, her feisty determination, and her extraordinary ability to think for herself, all the tools of self-help. She also lives with the ghosts who remain her loved ones and friends „ her parents, all of her sisters and brothers but one, and my father, just to start with. Meanwhile, she remains unfailingly cheerful and modest about her strengths and her abilities, one of which is the capac-ity to accept her own failure of eyes. Although she has to rely on my sister and brother-in-law for nearby help, therefore, she keeps that reliance to a minimum by helping herself. She prepares her food each day from her memory of stocked shelves; chooses her clothes each day from her memory of a closet full; conducts a social life each day by remembering 10-digit telephone numbers; and helps herself stay fit by letting down the heavy old treadmill that was my dads and walking crisply for extended periods. All of which makes me conclude that if Rafael Nadal really needs self-help skills, hes not going to get them from a book, or even from a great tennis victory. Instead, he might get them from learning to cope with a weakness or a failure or a disability. But hows he going to do that by being so good? Maybe he should call my mother, a master of self-help. Shes probably available to offer advice or even instruction, should that be necessary. And at no cost except her own experience.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY GUEST OPINIONOral chemotherapy parity legislation is a bittersweet pillFor those of us who spend our days entrenched in the war on breast cancer, the Florida legisla-tures recent pas-sage of an oral chemotherapy parity law „ and Governor Scott signing the bill into law „ marked a major victory. Now, health insurance companies will be required to cover the cost of oral cancer drugs in the same way they cover the cost of IV or injectable drugs. And for women with breast cancer, as well as cancer patients of all types, the law means access to medication that is often more effective and has fewer side effects. For some, its the difference between life and death. So why is this moment bittersweet?Despite the major milestone this law represents, millions of Floridians remain shut out from the benefits of oral chemotherapy drugs because the law only affects those with insurance. Oftentimes, these people dont have access to any treatment. In the case of breast cancer, these women are fre-quently diagnosed with more advanced disease because they dont have resource for regular screening mammography. This is the population that Susan G. Komen South Florida serves.The real victims of controversyA recent article published by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Komen South Florida raised 31 per-cent less money „ or $500,000 less „ from the Race for the Cure we held earlier this year. Theres little question the reduction can be attributed to tough economic times combined with the effects of neg-ative media coverage. The real victims are the women who rely on us for breast cancer detection and treatment. Seventy-five percent of the money we raise stays in the local community to support our grantees who provide life-saving care. This year, fewer grantees will provide life-saving services to fewer women here at home, all due to reduced revenues.Hope for tomorrowThanks to the oral chemotherapy parity law, more women in Florida will receive the drugs best-suited to treat their breast cancer. Thats news to cel-ebrate! However, we cant lose track of the millions who still need our help. We need to continue to fight for them, advo-cate for them, and yes, we need to Race for them. At Komen South Florida we look forward to a time when everyone in our state will not only have access to treat-ment for their disease, but when they will have access to education, screening, diagnosis, and even genetic testing, like Angelina Jolie, to make informed deci-sion about their health.Until then, we will keep working to raise money in the fight against breast cancer. We will continue to meet every January in downtown West Palm Beach to Race for the Cure. We hope youll join us.

GUEST OPINIONState’s changes to Everglades restoration puts burden on taxpayers BY RAY JUDAHSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe most deceptive and egregious action against the public taxpayers dur-ing the 2013 Florida Legislative session was passage of HB 7065 and SB 768, which amended the 1994 Everglades Forever Act. Rep. Matt Caldwell sponsored HB 7065 under the guise of increasing the sugar industrys funding commitment to Everglades restoration, when in fact his proposed amendment was a smoke screen to ensure that the sugar industry was able to limit or cap its long-term obligation to fund Everglades restora-tion. The 1994 Everglades Forever Act, which was ostensibly written to restore the Florida Everglades, capped the sugar industrys cleanup costs at $320 million and obligated the public taxpayers for the remainder of the $16 billion resto-ration project. The so-called privilege tax of $25 per acre that the sugar indus-try pays to continue its discharge of pollution runoff to the Everglades, as well as the Caloosahatchee and coastal estuaries, amounts to approximately $11 million per year. A truly insignificant sum in contrast to the billions required by the public taxpayers to restore the Florida Everglades. The $25 per acre privilege tax was scheduled to be reduced to $10 per acre in 2017, but the Caldwell amendment extended the $25 per acre to 2026. To the casual observer, it would appear that the legislative action would ensure that the sugar industry continued to help fund Everglades restoration. In actual-ity, the legislation provided the sugar industry the comfort level or certainty that its long-term funding commitment toward Everglades restoration would be significantly limited in scope. Instead of defending the sugar industry and suggesting that the public taxpayers contribute an even greater amount to Everglades restoration, Rep. Caldwell should have supported an amendment to the Everglades Forever Act that increased the $25 privilege tax. This would have ensured that the sugar industry paid its fair share toward Ever-glades restoration as opposed to the sugar industry continuing to receive special treatment as the Florida Legis-latures favorite welfare recipient and shift the tax burden onto the backs of the public tax payers. Rep. Caldwell is quick to point out that the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon supported HB 7065, but the Sierra Club and The Conser-vancy of Southwest Florida took an opposing position that the legislation did not go far enough to level the fund-ing formula between the sugar industry and the public taxpayers. In fact, the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon only struck a com-promise to support HB 7065 because Rep. Caldwell was supporting an earlier version of an amendment that would have greatly weakened water quality standards and removed the 1993 State-ment of Principles that had been a guide for restoration efforts over the last 20 years. With the objectionable provisions removed in the final draft amendment, the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon were in damage control mode and reluctantly accepted the continua-tion of an inequitable funding formula for Everglades restoration. To put the sugar industrys $11 million annual contribution to Everglades res-toration in perspective, Lee County tax-payers pay in excess of $30 million per year to the Okeechobee levy for work by the South Florida Water Management District in the Everglades Agricultural Area to provide drainage and irrigation of the sugarcane fields south of Lake Okeechobee. Lee Countys return on the investment is polluted water, fish kills and harmful algae blooms includ-ing red tide. Certainly, the more conservative and responsible approach would be to sup-port public policy that protects the interest of struggling taxpayers and holds the sugar industry accountable for the destruction of precious pub-lic resources including the Everglades, Lake Okeechobee, Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers and coastal estuaries. The people have a right to know the truth and it is time for the public to demand that the Florida Legislature represent the public interest and not the special interests.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESA rewarding experienceThe ‘clicker’ is an easy tool with powerful training results BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickIn the last year, it seems like Ive been doing nothing but raising puppies. First came Ned, a Shetland sheepdog whos bright but a little on the shy side. Then Riley, an outgoing, bouncy retriever puppy Im raising for friends. While most of what I do with puppies involves socializing them to new people and places, sights and sounds, I also lay a foundation for a lifetime of learning by setting limits and by teaching a few basic behaviors in a way that makes it clear that training is fun. To get that latter idea across, the tool I reach for is what trainers call a clicker.Ž It doesnt look like much, but its an object that seems to possess a magic power when it comes to building a good relationship with an animal „ any animal. To the untrained eye, a clicker is a small plastic box that fits in the palm of your hand „ a childs toy thats also called a cricket.Ž To make the noise, you press down on the metal strip inside the hous-ing and quickly release it „ click-click! Of course, the clicker itself isnt magic. What it provides is timing „ it allows a trainer working with a dog who under-stands the game to let the pet know that the behavior hes doing right now is the one thats being rewarded. And that means the behavior will be repeated. The clicking noise becomes a reward because in the early stages of training, the sound is linked to the delivery of something a dog wants „ most usually, a tiny treat. You start by teaching your pet that a click means a treat. Pick a time when your pet isnt sleeping (not just after a meal) and is a little hungry (a couple of hours before a meal). Choose a relatively small, quiet place you can work without too many distractions, and prepare a pouch or bowl of tiny, yummy treats (diced hot dogs are popular, as are pieces of cheese or even bits of kibble). For the next few minutes, click and treat. One click, one treat. Again and again and again. Eventu-ally, your pet will show you he under-stands that the sound means food. For example, he may look immediately to the source of the treats after hearing the click. When that happens, youre on to the next stage. But wait until your next ses-sion, because clicker training works best with a couple of short sessions „ less than 10 minutes „ every day. When youre all set up again, sit quietly with your clicker and treats „ and wait. Your dog should start volunteering behav-iors, everything from sitting to pawing to wandering in a circle. When your pet chooses one you like, click, treat and wait again. Your dog will initially be confused, but should eventually offer the behavior again. Be patient! When that moment comes, click, treat and wait again. Say you clicked your dog a couple of times because he finally got bored and sat. Soon your dog will sit to test his theory that sitting means a click-treat. When that happens, click and jackpotŽ him with a handful of treats. When the pattern is firmly established, you can then give it a name (sitŽ) and make the food reward more random to strengthen it (this is the same principal that keeps you pulling the slot machine handle). In future sessions, youll move on from the sitŽ that your dog knows, waiting for more behaviors to click, treat and name as you build your pets repertoire of com-mands. More complicated behaviors are trained by chainingŽ „ training in seg-ments and putting them together. One more thing: Never punish your pet for not getting it right.Ž Clicker training is all about the payoff, and once you get it mastered, theres no end to the things you can teach your dog to do. And thats true no matter if your puppy is big or small, outgoing or shy. In my house, both Ned and Riley, although very dif-ferent puppies, are thriving as they learn that training is fun. Q Puppies thrive when they find training rewarding, allowing you to build a strong and loving relationship from the beginning. >> Libby is a 2-year-old spayed Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix.

Mr. De La Paz told his mentor at Florida International University that he wanted only to display his own liposuctioned fat provocatively, but decided to make soap when he realized that the fat would oth-erwise quickly rot. Some visitors to the exhibit were able to wash their hands with the engineered soap, which De La Paz offered for sale at $1,000 a bar. Q The entrepreneurial spiritQ As recently as mid-May, people with disabilities had been earning hefty black-market fees by taking strangers into Disneyland and Disney World using the parks own liberal disabilityŽ passes (which allow for up to five relatives or guests at a time to accompany the dis-abled person in skipping the sometimes-hours-long lines and having immediate access to the rides). The pass-holding guide,Ž according to NBCs TodayŽ show, could charge as much as $200 through advertising on craigslist and via word-of-mouth to some travel agents. Following reports in the New York Post and other outlets, Disney was said in late May to be warning disabled permit-holders not to abuse the privilege. Q After setting out to create a protective garment for mixed martial arts fighters, Jeremiah Raber of High Ridge, Mo., realized that his groin protection deviceŽ could also help police, athletes and military contractors. Armored Nut-shellz underwear, now selling for $125 each, has multiple layers of Kevlar plus another fabric called Dyneema, which Mr. Raber said can resistŽ multiple shots from 9 mm and .22-caliber handguns. He said the Army will be testing Nutshellz in August, hoping it can reduce the number of servicemen who come home with dev-astating groin injuries. Q Ambulance-chasingŽ lawyers are less the cliche than they formerly were because of bar association crackdowns, but fire truck-chasing contractors and public adjustersŽ are still a problem „ at least in Florida, where the state Supreme Court tossed out a 48-hourŽ time-out rule that would have given casualty victims space to reflect on their losses before being overwhelmed by home-restoration salesmen. Conse-quently, as firefighters told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in May, the contractors are usually right behindŽ them on the scene, pestering anxious or grief-stricken victims. The Sun-Sentinel found one woman being begged to sign up while she was still crying out for her dog that remained trapped in the blaze. Q Unconventional treatmentsQ Researchers writing recently in the journal PLoS ONE disclosed that they had found certain types of dirt that con-tain antimicrobial agents capable of kill-ing E. coli and the antibiotic-resistant MRSA. According to the article, medi-cal textsŽ back to 3000 B.C. mentioned clays that, when rubbed on wounds, reduced inflammation and pain. Q Researchers writing in May in the journal Pediatrics found that some infants whose parents regularly sucked their babies pacifiers to clean them (rather than rinsing or boiling them) developed fewer allergies and cases of asthma. (On the other hand, parental-cleansing might make other maladies more likely, such as tooth decay.) Q Leading economic indicatorsQ Until recently, apparently, gene mutations were considered merely freaks of nature, but that was before Myriad Genetics obtained binding U.S. patents for mutations it discov-ered „ now known as BRCA-1 and BRCA-2. Those mutations were in the news in May when actress Angelina Jolie announced that she had chosen to have a double mastectomy based on the presence of the cancer-causing muta-tions, which she had learned of through a Myriad Genetics test costing about $4,000. There is no price competition for the test, due to the patent, and Ms. Jolie, along with oncologists and OB-GYN doctors, fret that the test is too expensive for tens of millions of women around the world whose lives could be saved by knowing their status. Q Archeologists discovered in May that a construction company had bull-dozed 2,300-year-old Mayan ruins in northern Belize „ simply to mine the rocks for road fill to build a highway. A researcher said it could hardly have been an accident, for the ruins were 100 feet high in an otherwise flat landscape, and a Tulane University anthropologist estimated that Mayan ruins are being mined for road fill an average of once a day in their ancient habitats. Said another, (T)o realizeŽ that Mayans cre-ated these structures using only stone tools and then carried these materials on their headsŽ to build them „ and then that bulldozers can almost instant-ly destroy them „ is mind-boggling.Ž Q Fine points of lawA woman in Seattles Capitol Hill neighborhood reported to a local news blog in May that she had seen (and her husband briefly conversed with) a man who was operating a droneŽ from a sidewalk, guiding the noisy device to a point just outside a third-floor window in a private home. The pilot said he was doing researchŽ and, perhaps protected by a 1946 U.S. Supreme Court deci-sion, asserted that he was not violating anyones privacy because he, himself, was on a public sidewalk while the drone was in public airspace. The cou-ple called for a police officer, but by the time one arrived, the pilot and his drone had departed, according to a report on the Capitol Hill Seattle blog.

That might help everybody, from east to west and north to south. Besides the tri-state market up north (New York, New Jersey and Connecti-cut), Canadians are the biggest buyers,Ž says David Fite of Fite Shavell & Associ-ates in Palm Beach County. We do a lot of advertising in their magazines to give them a feel for the properties we have from the $2 million up to the $15 to $20 million range. And we have agents who make trips to Can-ada.Ž Other foreign-buyer demographics break down like this, from his vantage: The Germans, the English, the French „ most of the Western Europeans are represented here. The South Americans seem to stay more in Miami. We are seeing more Brazilians and Columbians coming up to Palm Beach. A lot of it is land banking. Theyre buying beautiful properties in the U.S., and putting their money into the U.S. because they feel safer here.Ž The Canadians dominate the purchase sales lists of foreign buyers in other markets, too. As long as their currency stays at an even rate or is positive against the dollar, I think this has a huge potential upside for Southwest Florida,Ž says Rowan Samuel, who with his wife, Karen Samuel, heads the Samuel Team at John R. Wood Realtors, in Naples. Thats across all (economic) categories. Most Canadian buyers are look-ing here for a second home. A lot are condominium buyers in the $200,000 to $300,000 range. But there are also a lot of upper-level executives purchasing multi-million-dollar properties who would like to spend more time here.Ž That in itself would prove a huge benefit to retail businesses anywhere in the state, Mr. Samuel adds. The idea is that an extension of a visa is also a central revenue generator. People who stay here longer will spend more in restaurants and stores and in other various ways that have a tremen-dous benefit.Ž All that sounds pretty good for everybody, in a Sunshine State where almost one out of five home purchases last year went to foreign buyers, about 80 percent of them paying cash. But that doesnt mean the law and the opportunities couldnt be even bet-ter, suggests Jim Green, a Lee County Realtor. Why do we want any of these investors to leave at all? With the age restric-tion we dont have the issue of work-force competition. We have people with what Ill call reasonable wealth who discover how delightful it is to live in America. To me theyre storybook residents, people with money coming in and in effect creating jobs, not taking jobs. So I would (propose) even more leniency. Dont put them in a situation where theyre forced to go back for some amount of time, because thats money theyd spend here.Ž That opinion is echoed by others. And in time to come, such a welcoming attitude, rather than a restrictive attitude, might open very wealthy but non-traditional markets to Realtors in Florida. Chinese nationals, for example, whose home purchases in the U.S. amounted to 1 percent of the total two years ago, doubled that last year, picking up 2 percent of homes sold to foreign buyers, notes Mr. Samuel. (Coincidentally, a Chinese company, Shuanghui International Holdings, reportedly moved last week to buy the worlds biggest pork producer, Smithfield Foods, Inc., headquartered along the James River in Smithfield, Va., for $4.7 billion, suggesting how deeply Chinas interest in U.S. prod-ucts reaches.) In time, Chinese home buyers could become a huge factor in Florida, too, although at the moment California and New York markets are (more attractive) to them,Ž Mr. Samuels predicts. Wherever they come from, foreign buyers can help American sellers and the American economy. We definitely have seen an increase in foreign buyers, especially Canadi-ans, and we person-ally know several who have said they would stay longer if their visas allowed them to,Ž notes Cur-tis Mellon, a Realtor in the Multiple List-ings Detective Group of Re-Maxs Anchor Realty, in Punta Gorda. In Charlotte County, he adds, highend foreign buyers who can no longer find a fabulous turn-key deal at the half-million to $1 million range, are now looking for land on which to build spe-cial homes „another way of powering up the American economy. Dave Kaster, who has been selling real estate in the Naples-Marco Island mar-ket for almost three decades (the third biggest market in Florida behind Sara-sota-Bradenton-Ven-ice and Miami-Fort Lauderdale for Cana-dian buyers), agrees that such legislation could give the market a boost „ maybe from the Europeans, whose business began to drop off a few years ago. I have seen a lot of Canadians buy,Ž he notes, especially in the last 18 months. They want to be here for the weather. But the German and Euro-pean market was bigger when I started my career, and thats dropped off. This could encourage them.Ž But if Congress is really interested in bringing money into the economy from overseas, Mr. Kaster has another sug-gestion. It would be nice if theyd get the corporate tax structure under control,Ž he says. Its so confusing for American companies, and we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world „ I think thats a hindrance to bringing money back into the U.S.Ž Partly as a result, American companies have shipped many jobs overseas, Mr. Kaster concludes. Thats why we need to do anything we can to bring foreign investment into Florida.Ž Q BUYERSFrom page 1MELLON KASTER FITE

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYAnd then, nothing. But theyre out there, no question about it. The sharks are out there, hidden now beneath the rhythmic waves just south of Juno Pier „ not far from where one tore away most of 6-year-old Nickolaus Biebers thigh last summer. The little boy was in waist-deep water when the attack happened. Something bit me,Ž he told his mother, an understatement if ever there was one. But, He was screaming when I pulled him out of the water,Ž Christina Bieber says, and a Trauma Hawk flew him to St. Marys Medical Center where, the next day, his father asked a simple question of trauma surgeon Michael West: Do you know what bacteria are in a sharks mouth?Ž Dr. West did not know. Nor did his colleague, Dr. Robert Borrego, who asked infectious disease specialist Dr. Olayemi Osiyemi. Nope. No one knew. Research on the subject was pretty much nonex-istent. Which is why Nathan Unger, an assistant professor at Nova Southeastern Universitys College of Pharmacology in Palm Beach Gardens, is pacing the beach on this recent Friday evening, hoping for a bite. On a fishing line, that is. Hes been out, oh, maybe 20 times now, with professional shark fisherman Josh Jorgensen. One day, Mr. Jorgensen landed seven of the creatures, allowing Mr. Unger to swab their gums and teeth „ a tricky maneuver „ before they were returned to the sea. The bacteria samples he collects go to St. Marys microbiology lab, where a technician cultures them. The idea is this: If researchers can iden-tify specific bacteria, then doctors can treat shark bites with specific antibiotics. Im a pharmacist doing shark research,Ž Mr. Unger says, with equal parts pride and amazement. So far, he and Mr. Jorgensen have swabbed the mouths of 20 blacktip sharks, a nurse shark, a dusky and a hammerhead. This evening, the hope is for another type, the sort Mr. Jorgensen believes has just evaded the hook. That was a bull shark,Ž Mr. Jorgensen says with quiet certainty. Probably 300-plus pounds, probably 400 yards from shore. He didnt need to see it, he could feel it. It was really head-shaking, all the time. He couldve shook the line right out of his mouth. They cruise this stretch of the beach, looking for food. This is their territory, this is where they live. Where theres one bull shark, theres five. Theyre pack hunters.Ž This stretch of the beach is shark Nirvana. Mr. Jorgensen knows what sharks like, and they like structure: underwater lines of rock or coral that run parallel to the shore, the fish that shelter in their nooks and crannies. Hammerheads, especially, like a full moon because, as he says, Its like daytime for them; they can hunt and have good light.Ž Just now, all is calm, allowing time to watch the waves spilling onto the beach, their lacy white foam like the hems of petticoats lying flat for the iron, time to consider the meandering pathways bare feet have pressed into the sand. A pale half-moon floats in the still-blue sky; from the east, a light wind strokes the beach. This shark research is still new for Mr. Unger, who spends more of his time teaching pharmacy students about medi-cines: when theyre taken by mouth, when by injection; dosages; side effects. The question asked last year by little Nickolaus dad propelled Mr. Unger in this new direction. At St. Marys, where he often brings his students, he works with Dr. Borrego, a trauma surgeon who has treated his share of shark bites. Shark attacks are rare but, for decades, Florida has led the United States in the number of unprovoked attacks „ 26 of 53, fully 49 percent, last year alone, compared with 10 in Hawaii and five each in Califor-nia and South Carolina. This is attribut-able to very high aquatic recreational utilization of their attractive beaches and waters by both Florida residents and tour-ists, especially surfers, and the rich nature of Floridas marine fauna,Ž according to the International Shark Attack File main-tained by the Ichthyology department at the Florida Museum of Natural History. In 2010, Dr. Borrego treated Anthony Segrich, who lost most of his calf „ mus-cle, nerves, tendons and flesh „ to a shark while spearfishing for cobia with friends, off the coast of West Palm Beach. He had eight surgeries,Ž Dr. Borrego recalls, several for infection.Ž Infection can be devastating. It can cause fever, inflamed skin, a rise in the bodys white count, tis-sue that discolors and refuses to heal and must be surgically removed. Dr. Borrego treated Mr. Segrich, then 32, with wide-spectrum antibiotics that are effective against a wide variety of bacteria „ and they worked, but Dr. Borrego is hopeful that the current research will led to even better options. The absence of shark-specific bacterial knowledge troubled Nathan Unger. I did some background research to see whats been doneŽ he says, and there was a single study in Australia. One shark. It was from a fishing tournament and it was already dead. The next study was in Brazil, but they swabbed the anal gland, which, you know, isnt the part that bites. Now, were going into the mouth of a live shark.Ž No easy trick, that.Mr. Unger sought, and found, a promising entry on the web site of Blacktip Chal-lenge, an annual catch-tag-and-release fishing tournament that combines sport and research. Its founder, Mr. Jorgensen, was eager to join the effort. His first con-tribution: demonstrating how to stand behind the shark, grab its blunt snout, yank it back and behold a fishs eye view of its toothy smile. Very impressive. Also very scary. He says, You try it, and Im, like, What?Ž Mr. Unger recalls. How am I going to get a swab from this shark thats angry, thats got teeth, thats got bacteria in its mouth?Ž Once again, he found the answer online: Globe Pharmacy in New Jersey sold a swab extension device that tightens and holds, perfect for swabbing. The $1,000 price tag wasnt so perfect, but the folks at Globe, he says, were very altruisticŽ once they learned about his mission. The mission required, as he says, navigating all this new stuff. I had to get the blessing of the (federal) Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. They approved my protocol, how Im collecting the samples, how the sharks are released. And I had to get a special activities license from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commis-sion. They want to know which animals youre studying and what you hope to get from that.Ž Hed love to have a research assistant now and has applied for a small faculty grant from Nova Southeastern, but right now, his focus is on swabbing, and swab-bing requires what has so far, been absent this evening: a shark. Mr. Jorgensen begins reeling in the line to see if the bait, a hefty cobia, is still attached. He cranks the reel. And cranks. And cranks. And cranks. After five minutes of reeling in, the cobia „ most of it, at least „ lies on the beach, minus a large fillet torn from its side. Look at this tooth mark!Ž Mr. Jorgensen says, fingering an inch-long slit near the cobias head. Look at how big it is!Ž Four-year-old Hayden Unger and his brother Lucas, 3, sidle up to have a look. They clearly were hoping for a bigger, meaner fish. Ask the boys what their dad does for a living and theyll say, catches sharks.Ž They think its super cool,Ž says their mother, Jessica. We had to buy them shark toys. Theyll pretend, when were home, to swab the toys mouths.Ž A year after his encounter with the real thing, Nickolaus Bieber can finally feel comfortable talking about it, his mother says. He even shows off his scar. For her, the memory of that day „ both the shark bite and the treatment „ remains ever vivid. Matthew Bieber has had allergic reactions to antibiotics and worried that his son might have inherited that. A sting-rays barb caught Christina Beibers foot, a few years ago, and caused a lingering infection. She and her husband feel invested in the ongoing research. We hope that doc-tors can minimize the amount of medi-cine thats used (to treat shark bites) and the side effects and the sick time,Ž she says. As for Nickolaus, He wanted to go back in the water before he was healed. Hes tough.Ž Q SHARKSFrom page 1 BORREGO COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Josh Jorgensen holds open a shark’s mouth while Nathan Unger swabs its mouth.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 NEWS A11 linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com HEALTHY LIVINGAngelina deserves accolades for sharing that she is taking charge of cancer Confession: I was never much of an Angelina Jolie fan. Its not that I held anything in particular against her. Its just I wasnt one of those avid aficionados who tracked every detail of her glamorous life and career. However, Ive recently come to regard Ms. Jolie in a far different light. I am writing now to applaud her recent efforts to take proactive charge of her own medical challenges and to publicly share her story so others might benefit from her experiences. In May, the actress wrote a moving Op-Ed article in the New York Times. Ms. Jolie shared the pain of losing her own mother at a young age to breast cancer. Aware that breast cancer is often hereditary, she elected to go through genetic testing. When the tests con-firmed Jolie carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, she elected to go through a series of surgeries, including a preventive double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Many of us would have chosen to quietly endure the necessary medical pro-cedures, confiding in a handful of trust-ed family members and friends. And, certainly, we could not have blamed the actress had she chosen to protect her privacy and do the same. However, aware that her celebrity and stature affords her the opportunity to serve as a vital role model to scores of women and their loved ones, Ms. Jolie elected to come forward in a dignified, powerful way. She wrote: I am writing about it now because I hope that other women can benefit from my experience. Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into peo-ples hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action.Ž As Jolie aptly points out, the threat of cancer, itself, can bring out the worst of our fears. But for so many women, the threat of losing their breasts or ovaries cuts to the very core of their feminine identity. For millions, Angelina Jolie has embodied the ideal of beauty and allure. When a star of her stature confides that she feels every bit as feminine as before, she has delivered a powerful, far-reaching message of courage: On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.Ž Ms. Jolie has bravely helped to inform women with a history of breast cancer in their families about the importance of genetic testing and counseling and the many medical options that are available to them. Sadly, skeptics have been critical and have questioned Ms. Jolies motives. Granted she has access to services not available to many, but in no way does that diminish the courage she has shown. Not all of us have the privileges and medical options that were available to Ms. Jolie. Genetic testing is expensive, and far too many are not able to afford this opportunity. And, further, we are well aware, that the preventative sur-geries and cosmetic reconstructive pro-cedures may be out of reach for a cer-tain segment of the population. These important social concerns of medical access must be addressed, but should not compromise the importance of dis-seminating preventative messages. While the medical decisions Ms. Jolie made were the right choice for her, its important to remember that everyones medical situation is different. These are very personal choices, and each woman must consider the options recommend-ed to her, with careful discussion with her medical providers, before finalizing a treatment plan. If a person ultimately elects to make a choice different than that of Ms. Jolie, she should not second-guess herself. By making public her story about how she dealt with the high risk of get-ting breast cancer, Angelina Jolie has provided a public service message to women around the world. She deserves the highest accolades. When confronted with the specter of her own mortality, Ms. Jolie chose to take proactive steps to afford herself the best possible medical advantages. As a woman whose career is largely tied to her appearance and sex appeal, her willingness to talk so openly provides support and guidance to those women and their partners who may face similar choices. As Jolie notes: Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.Ž„ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

A12 WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYThink of an orthopedics team as a human body shopMuch as a mechanic can repair a flat tire, broken axle or even the effects of regular wear and tear, orthopedic physi-cians can fix the human bodys joints and broken bones. The human body shop in northern Palm Beach County is led by the orthopedic team at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Daily bone and joint pain can ruin an individuals ability to be physi-cally active, perform at work and perform daily functions. With the advancements in modern medicine more than 90 percent of joint replacement surgeries are success-ful. Joint replacement surgery is becoming more common in the United States, with more than 773,000 Americans having a hip or knee replaced annually. Joint damage is caused by osteoarthritis, injuries and other diseases. Joint wear is caused by years of use, bone tumor or blood loss because of insufficient blood supply. Symptoms of joint problems include pain, stiffness and swelling. During surgery by an orthopedic specialist, new joints can be cemented into place to hold the new joint to the bone, or the prosthesis can be placed without cement so bone can grow and attach to it. A prosthesis is designed to duplicate the mechanical properties of the joint being replaced. A prosthetic knee, for example, will be flexible enough to bend without breaking and strong enough to bear weight. More than 580,000 knee replacements are done annually in the United States. Joint replacement surgery involves replacing a damaged joint with a new one known as prosthesis. These new joints usually are made of special metals, such as stainless steel or titanium, and durable, wear-resistance plastic. Prostheses are designed to be accepted by the body and resist corrosion, degradation and wear so they can last at least 10 to 15 years. Hips and knees are the joints replaced most often, but shoulders, fingers, ankles and elbows can be replaced as well. With hip replacement surgery, most patients are able to resume activities like swimming, playing a round of golf or even riding a bike comfortably. Surgery for hip replacement patients can help lessen prob-lems walking up and down stairs or make it easier to stand from a seated position. Hip fractures send more than 320,000 Americans to the hospital each year. While hip fractures can be treated, the injury can lead to severe health problems and reduced quality of life. Approximately 20 percent of hip fracture patients die within one year of their injury. Most hip and knee replacement patients are discharged from the hospital three to five days after surgery. Patients will be encouraged to stand and start walking soon after surgery with a walker or crutches. Pain from sore muscles or surgery can be helped with medication and usually disap-pears in a few weeks or months. Physical therapy exercises will help regain motion in the joint.

Adam Barry, a UF assistant professor of health education and behavior and his team interviewed and breath-tested more than 1,000 bar patrons in a downtown restaurant and bar district of a major Southeastern university town. Of the des-ignated drivers who had consumed alco-hol, half recorded a blood-alcohol level higher than .05 percent, a recently rec-ommended new threshold for drunken driving. Often, people choose designated drivers by who is least drunk or who has successfully driven intoxicated in the past,Ž Mr. Barry said. Thats disconcert-ing.Ž The results are published in the July issue of the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. Researchers recruited patrons as they left bars between 10 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. on six Friday nights before home football games in the fall of 2011. The mean age those tested was 28. Most were white male college students, while 10 percent were Hispanic, 6 percent were Asian and 4 percent were African-American. After completing a 3-5 minute interview, participants had their blood-alcohol content tested with a hand-held breath-testing instrument. The non-driving participants had significantly higher levels than the designat-ed drivers, but 35 percent of the 165 self-identified designated drivers had been drinking. Seventeen percent of all those drivers tested had blood-alcohol levels between .02 and .049 percent, while 18 percent were at .05 percent or higher. The National Transportation Safety Board last month recommended all 50 states adopt a blood-alcohol content cut-off of 0.05 compared with the 0.08 stan-dard used today to prosecute drunken driving. The American Medical Associa-tion made the same recommendation in the 1980s, Barry said. Some field-based research suggests designated drivers might drink because the group did not consider who would drive before drinking commenced. Mr. Barry also suggested that its tricky for anyone to accurately evaluate his or her own sobriety. Research indicates no universally accepted definition of a designated driv-er. But most U.S. researchers say drivers should completely abstain, and interna-tional researchers believe the blood-alco-hol level of DDs should remain below the legal limit. At .08 percent, the U.S. has one of the highest allowable legal limits of any developed country. Countries such as Denmark, Finland and Greece use the .05 level; Russia and Sweden are at .02; and Japan has a zero percent tolerance.

Its the worlds third largest economy, boasting the second largest equity and government bond markets. The yen is one of the top three traded currencies. The underpinnings of this economic powerhouse are both complex and troubling. For some savvy investors, Japan is more troubling than the EUs southern members, which are tied to a strong Germany. Japans economy reached its nadir in 1989/1990 when its equity and real estate markets peaked. Since then, Japan has experienced a recurring on-and-off deflation over 15 years. At one point, the Japanese equity mar-ket was down 75 percent from 1989s peak value. Japan, formerly an export behemoth, now suffers trade deficits as other Asian countries have learned to beat Japan at the export game (i.e., cheapening their currencies and mak-ing better products.) In April 2011, Japans misery worsened. A tsunami hit the island-nation and created a nuclear power plant disaster. Post tragedy, all other nucle-ar reactors were closed and Japan had to turn to natural gas imports for fuel for electric power plants. Unlike the U.S., which domestically provides much of its energy needs, Japan has no oil or natural gas. Since 2011, Japans power plants have been forced to use imported lique-fied natural gas as an alternative to nuclear. Japans import price is five to six times the cost of U.S. domes-tic natural gas. This importation has weighed heavily on its economy and trade balance. Japans woes are not isolated to its economics. It now faces military threats from China claiming nearby islands. Conveniently, much of Chi-nese claiming is for islands in oil rich waters. As of September 2012, new Japanese political leadership undertook mas-sive fiscal, monetary and GDP growth initiatives to reverse misfortunes. The changes come after 20-plus years of central bank/government failure to roll out aggressive, curative policies and after years of c orporate refusal to recognize large asset losses on their bal-ance sheets. For free markets to work, clean books are needed. Smoke and mirrors accounting constrains business. All that aforementioned is not the worst of it. Japan has terrible demo-graphics that are inextricably tied to its finances. Japan is skewed to an aging popula tion: the current ratio of six workers for every two retirees will change to three workers for two retirees by 2032 Japans retirement investments are heavily weighted in Japanese Government Bonds, or JGBs. Japans core JGB buyers are maturing into JGB sellers. Such liquidation creates difficulties for a government that runs mas-sive budget deficits and sells JGBs to fund deficits. In the budget for the year that ended in March, and across central and local governments, total government spending on pensions, health care, nursing care and family benefits was 124.5 trillion, or 26.1 percent of GDP,Ž read the article Once More with Feeling in the May 18 issue of The Economist. But gov-ernment revenue amounted to only 59.2 trillion, or 12.5 percent of GDP. Borrowing largely made up the dif-ference. Stabilizing Japans national debtƒ requires moving from a deficit before interest payments of 8 percent to a surplus of 3.2 percent. A dou-bling of the consumption tax, to 10 percent, is planned for 2014-15. But with a shrinking workforce having to support a growing number of elderly, the necessary swing is simply too big for any plausible mix of tax hikes and spending cuts to deal with.Ž U.S. citizens are concerned that our issued federal debt is 135 percent to GDP; Japans is at 235 percent of their GDP! Which foreigners will buy JGBs if the yen continues to fall and their interest rates are rising? (The yen is down 21 percent from September 2012 through mid-day June 10.) Quite a conundrum. Some investors point to the booming Japanese equity and global equity markets as proof that Japans new programs are working, as equity mar-kets moved up 80 percent from fall 2012 through June 5. Or, were the stock gains attributable to the flow of dollars out of JGBs and into world-wide equities? Maybe the yen carry tradeŽ is back in full force. (i.e. bor-rows yen at low Japanese rates; sell yen; and buys other currencies/assets with higher yields.) That Japan has taken the QE experiment into the stratosphere is not lost on George Soros, the most noted currency speculator. Per an interview in early April on CNBC, Mr. Soros said, What Japan is doing right now is actually quite dangerous because they are doing it after 25 years of just simply accumulating deficits and not getting the economy growing,Ž he explained. So if what theyre doing gets something started, they might not be able to stop it. If the yen starts to fallƒ the fall may become like an avalanche.Ž The statement is not lost on investors who have seen a fall in the Nikkei of approximately 15 percent by mid-day June 10, having recovered from a loss of 20 percent in a mere 11 trading days ended June 5. Long term, there is no stopping the math that compounds JGB interest as budget deficits continue. There would have to be astronomical growth in its GDP and tax receipts to create a more sound financial outlook for Japan.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 A16 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLeadership Palm Beach County presented the 9th Annual Leadership Excellence Award to Patrick McNamara, president and CEO of the Community Partnership Group. More than 330 community leaders attended the award event sponsored by Florida Power & Light and Gunster Attorneys at Law, and celebrated the community contributions of 11 award finalists and nominees „ all alum-ni of Leadership Palm Beach Countys yearlong leadership pro-gram. Since 2004, the Leadership Excellence Award has recognized one individual in Palm Beach County who has made a significant con-tribution to improve our community and who possess the leadership qualities of integrity, compassion, credibility, passion, risk-taking, fairness, empowerment and humility. Mr. McNamara directs two member nonprofits, Housing Partnership and the Parent-Child Center. Mr. McNamara was awarded the countys first U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant to develop housing for people with disabili-ties. He has overseen the growth and devel-opment of CPG into an organization with a combined annual operating budget of $15 million and a staff of over 200 employees „ all working toward a single mission: to provide an array of economic, housing and social/emotional services for targeted com-munity development that changes the odds for at-risk families in Palm Beach County. This years finalists of the Leadership Excellence Award were Vincent Bonvento, assistant county administrator for Palm Beach County; Dari Bowman, charitable activist; Barbara I. Cheives, president of Converge and Associates Consulting; and Joseph B. Shearouse III, president and CEO, First Bank of the Palm Beaches. Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAs the weather warms up, consumers turn their focus to home maintenance, remodeling and repair projects. Most of us lead hectic lives, leaving little time for us to complete home projects big or small. Finding a trustworthy business is the same whether youre looking for a remod-eler, handyman, plumber, painter, pool con-tractor or landscaper. In 2012, the Better Business Bureau saw a 29 percent increase in business inquiries, which supports the notion that consumers are doing their homework before they hire a business. This is the high season for home improvement projects,Ž said Karen Nalven, president of the BBB serving west Florida. There are hundreds of reputable contrac-tors in our area who will deliver quality work, on time and within budget.Ž The BBB advises homeowners to be wary of contractors who promise work at cut-rate prices or who ask the homeowner to pull his own permit. Its in your best interest to ensure that the contractor you hire is properly licensed and insured to perform work in Florida. This protects you as a homeowner and assures that the work is done safely and completed according to all building code requirements. If you need help around the house, BBB offers the following tips: € Use bbb.org to find trustworthy businesses. Start your search with BBB Busi-ness Directory to find BBB Accredited contractors in your area. If you are referred to a business through friends, family or an advertisement, verify the business is in good standing at bbb.org before contacting them. € Compare costs. Get at least three bids from prospective contractors based on the same specifications, materials, labor and time needed to complete the project. BBBs Request-a-Quote service is free to use and will allow BBB Accredited Businesses to send you quotes via email. Understand variations in price may be associated with quality of materials. € Call references. Ask all contractors to provide local references and find out if those customers were satisfied with the work performed. If possible, visit a com-pleted project to inspect the quality of workmanship. A legitimate contractor will be happy to provide you with references. € Check licensing. Licensing requirements vary depending on where you live. Before you hire a contractor, ask to see a state or county issued license. Contact the State Contractors Licensing Board and/or your local county Contractors Licens-ing Board to find out whats required for the scope of work your contractor will be performing: (click on respective county for licensing information) Note: An occu-pational license or Business Tax Receipt does not qualify an individual to act as a contractor. € Beware of high up front fees. Contractors may require a down payment before work begins, but it should not be a signifi-cant portion of the total cost. Instead, make payments that align with the progress of the work completed. Make sure you are satis-fied with the work before making a final payment. Never pay in cash. Instead, use a credit card in case an issue arises. € Review your contract thoroughly. Make sure it includes all of the materials needed to complete the job, an itemized list of all costs involved, any subcontracted labor and a warranty for all work performed. Consid-er having a trusted friend or relative review the contract with you. After your project is complete do not sign off that work is completed until all work is finished accord-ing to your contract, and the contractor has cleared all permits with final inspection approval from the building department. € Verify insurance coverage. Find out if the company is insured against claims covering workers compensation, property damage and personal liability in case of accidents. Verify coverage directly with the business insurance company if possible. Q Patrick McNamara receives 9th Leadership Excellence AwardMCNAMARA Get summer repairs done right COURTESY PHOTO

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Fine Decorative Hardware and Plumbing Fixtures for the Discriminating Homeowner Since 1935 605 South Olive Avenue Downtown West Palm Beach 561-655-3109 www.andersonshardware.com ANDERSON’S We Continue to Rely on Traditional American Ingenuity in Design, Function and Technology An American Made Benchmark Kitchen Faucet Company Philanthropy’s commitment to collaboration results in success In the charitable sector collabor ation is often jokingly described as an unnatu-ral act between two unwilling partners.Ž Thats because its fairly rare for organi-zations to overcome their aversion to co-dependency in order to achieve a shared goal. Self-interest trumps the altruism driving devotion to common cause; and the instinct for self-preservation withers an otherwise open attitude. There are incentives to try nonetheless. Working collaboratively can enable organizations to leap frog barriers to unprecedented change; and, after all, whats to lose? Initial explorations dont require much upfront investment. Good will attracts potential partners to the table and game on. But thats just the beginning. To sustain ones appetite through the main course of boney issues „ well, thats another undertaking entirely. Its a pro-cess that requires patience and a long-term view. Shortcuts seldom work if the destination is a substantive and measure-able outcome. Organizations predisposed to collaborate approach the process with a healthy amount of skepticism. It can be risky to take the plunge. Community foundations are especially adept at managing the risk by choosing to convene, a role that often comes up-to but not-be yond the fence line of casual engagement. This has earned them the reputation for being the SwitzerlandŽ of the charitable uni-verse. They host meetings and invite stakeholders to discuss issues under a white flag of neutrality. But conven-ing to advocate cooperation is a weak sister to the more difficult task of actu-ally achieving common cause. Without a sustained plan of investment and follow-up, stakeholders gravitate back to business as usual. Not much is likely to change. Good times rarely demand the kind of compromises that require a sacrifice of self-interests; bad times invariably do. Making nice runs out of wind when most charities are struggling to hang on to their reason for being in a shattered economy. The competition for funding and top billing for credit can easily doom getting to yes. Community foundations are one among many public charities carried along in the flotsam and chaos known as the Great Recession. Most organi-zations accept they need to re-boot and adjust their strategies, given cir-cumstances have vastly changed. Meet-ing to meet is a banal enterprise in the absence of a strong commitment to genuine change and does little to sandbag against the flood of economic issues engulfing entire communities. Resources have grown more limited and strategies have lost their edge. Endow-ments have slipped; grant budgets have declined; operational dollars are down; and general support is far more difficult to raise. Increased collaboration is a standout option to better leverage all available resources. But even collabora-tion has limitations; if the organizations participating dont change their spots, the sector hasnt really moved the bar. The world has changed. Searching for new strategies should move beyond the obvious and ask: How are chari-ties going to sustain their relevance as agents of change in the communities they serve? Theres a practical reason to deeply consider this issue. A passive or inef-fective approach to community problem solving is not a strong argument for donor investment. Community founda-tions that now lead instead of lunch have transformed their role in communities. An increased commitment to collabora-tion is leveraging many times over the value institutions can each contribute to a cause. Partnerships inclusive of multiple funders, nonprofits, and the public and private sectors are an equal opportunity engagement with the potential to drive big results. Last week, it was announced that a free medical clinic, My Clinic,Ž was opening its doors in Jupiter, the result of collabo-ration between the Town of Jupiter, Palm Beach County, Jupiter Medical Center and El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center. Quantum Foundation, the Palm Health-care Foundation, and Allegany Franciscan Ministries jointly contributed three years of grant support to get My ClinicŽ opera-tional. Volunteer professionals will pro-vide medical and dental care. Considering the complexity of joining all these moving parts, its a remar kable o utcome. An organization invested in collaboration knows any road made by walking requires extraordinary leadership. The nitty-gritty of mustering institutional commitments is a deliberative process that proliferates the complexities across the board and staff of multiple organiza-tions. Theres a good chance more will go wrong that can possibly go right. Yet those who reach out to create such partnerships are doing more than being cooperative or collegial. They are changing the way they do business in order to get business done. Thats what being relevant means when the needs are great and the opportunities are many to make a difference.

That doesnt necessarily mean it is a negative, though. Those words can actually end up with very positive results. I have clients who have had their home listed for two years. They started with another agent and switched to me after a year because of the lack of results. The home is beautiful with many amenities and was priced somewhat out of the market when I took over the listing. In an effort to gain momentum and get potential prospects to the home, I changed the price to be competitive in the marketplace and launched a heavy marketing campaign. The home was for sale during the season and I took advantage of certain weekends, open houses, events in the area and particular publications that I knew would drive prospects to the property. I had several showings, but no one ready to make an offer. My clients were getting very frustrated, but did start their own search to find a new home. They fell in love with one of the homes and wanted to make an offer. After discussing the offer, they decided to wait until they received a contract on their home because they felt there were enough homes on the market that met their criteria. They also believed that the home that was their first choice may even still be available once they were ready. A few months passed and finally we put their home under contract, very close to the ask-ing price. It was just a matter of finding the right buyer and it all came together very easily. They will be closing on the home the end of June. Now my clients were excited! It was time to search for their new home and hopefully return to the home they wanted to make an offer on a few months ago. They were disappointed when they learned that home had sold. At the time they decided to pass on making an offer on the home they liked, I advised them that it may not be available and I encouraged them to make an offer. The inventory was get-ting low and there may not be much that met their needs once their home went under contract. They listened to my advice, but didnt feel comfortable. Typi-cally, a five-bedroom home with pool, game room, three-car garage and land shouldnt be that difficult to find. Their price point was up to $1.5 million. We searched for two weeks through all the available homes. Nothing met their needs. Each home was either too small, not enough land or the price point was too high for them. As the time frame began to shrink, they started to discuss whether they should rent a home until they find something they were interested in purchasing. Surely, something would come on the market in the meantime. Two more weeks passed. We looked at available rentals, which had an even tighter inventory. Paying $15,000 a month did not sit well with them, know-ing the money was not going toward a mortgage. I convinced them to look at four-bedroom homes with possible room for expansion. Reluctantly, they agreed. There were three homes on the market that were priced approxi-mately $150,000 under their bud-get, but in the neighborhood they liked, all with room for expan-sion. I called three builders to come look at one of the homes they liked and give my clients an opinion of a budget to com-plete the expansion. One of the builders in particular, not only gave them a good idea for an expansion, but also discussed a few other options that appealed to my clients very much. They ended up making an offer that was accepted and now will be moving into their new home at the end of June. What my clients realized is that you can still take a home, or anything for that matter, and if it has the right structure and layout, it can be modified into the perfect home for their family. Be cautious, however, that anytime you hire a builder or contractor, they are licensed and insured. As a Florida State Certified Gen-eral Contractor myself, it can be a very pleasant experience if you use a licensed, experienced and insured con-tractor. I believe we will be seeing more of this happening as the market contin-ues to gain momentum and inventory is down.

A24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYOn Flag Day, let them fly, or show them off under glassFlag Day is celebrated every June 14 to commemorate the day the flag of the United States was adopted in 1777. Flag Day was officially established in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson. It became National Flag DayŽ by a 1949 Act of Congress. Flags should be flown the whole week of June 14. Collectors of old flags display them framed under glass to protect them because they are such important historic relics and are usually in poor condition. But even a torn flag connected to an important event or per-son is of value, often worth thousands of dollars. An 1863 35-star U.S flag auc-tioned this year at Cowans of Cincin-nati for $705. It had scattered holes and stains. One way to celebrate Flag Day is to put a vintage doll with a flag in your window. An Uncle SamŽ bisque doll made about 1918 by Handwerck, a Ger-man company, sold at a 2012 Theriaults auction for $2,350. The doll was holding an American flag with 48 stars on it. Q: In 1945 I received six place settings of English fish eaters.Ž They were a wedding gift from my aunt, who had owned the set since she got married. So the set is close to being antique.Ž Theyre marked, but I cant read the mark, and they have bone or ivory han-dles. What do you think the set is worth?A: A single set of fish eaters (also called fish feedersŽ) is a matching fish knife and fish fork „ uten-sils designed to use when eating fish. A fish knifes blade is flat and does not have a sharp edge. Its slightly curved on both sides „ one side curved inward and the other out. A fish fork has three or four flat unsharpened tines, with the outer tines wider than the inner. A set of stainless-steel fish eaters with plastic handles would sell for under $100. A set made of sterling silver with ivory or bone handles is worth several hundred dol-lars. Ask someone to try to read the makers mark for you. That may help deter-mine the value.Q: I own a small plastic souvenir snow globe of the New York City skyline. Inside theres the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers that came down in 2001. It is marked Made in Hong Kong.Ž Does it have collectible value? A: New York Citys skyline with the Statue of Liberty is prob-ably the worlds most widely produced snow globe subject. Plastic globes were introduced in the 1950s, but construction of the Twin Towers wasnt completed until the early 1970s. So your globe isnt more than about 40 years old. While the Towers make your globe a touch-ing souvenir, it would not sell for more than about $10. Too many were made to warrant a high price. Q: I just bought a deep cast-iron skillet at an auc-tion. Im trying to find out what its worth. The bot-tom of the pan is stamped Martin Stove and Range, Florence, Alabama.Ž The lid has an ornate handle and is stamped No. 9.Ž Id like to find out something about the maker, too. A: Brothers W.H. Martin and Charles Martin founded Martin Stove & Range Co. after buying two other stove companies in 1917. The new company made cast-iron hollow-ware from 19 17 until 1952. Skillets, kettles, griddles, pans, sad irons and other items were made. Skillets were made in eight differ-ent sizes and sell today for prices based on size and condition. Recent prices go from about $10 to more than $50. Only a few sell for higher prices. What-ever your winning bid was at the auction is probably the wholesale price for the skillet. It probably would sell for more in a shop. Q: I have a 1940s Clip-Craft erector set in its original cylindrical box. I cant find any information about the set and hope you can help. A: Your construction set was made by Clip-Craft Corp. of New York City. It was written up as a new toy in the December 1947 issue of Popular Science magazine. The set includes curves and rods, steel clips, aluminum sheets and wooden wheels. Pieces are held together by the clips rather than by nuts and bolts. The term Erector SetŽ is a brand name trademarked by Alfred C. Gilbert, who patented his metal construction set in 1913. Gilberts sets, made by the A.C. Gil-bert Co. of New Haven, Conn., starting in 1916, were assembled with nuts and bolts. Tip: Do not use self-adhesive tape, stickers or self-stick labels in a scrap-book. Eventually they will no longer stick to paper, and the old adhesive will leave marks. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 A25 FLORIDA WEEKLY Enter Julie Rowes world, and the laughter never stops. Or at least thats how it seems in the lobby of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts, where Ms. Rowe is director of education. But enter Ms. Rowes other world, 1936 Ireland, and the mood is a little more somber. Ms. Rowe currently is starring in Palm Beach Dramaworks production of Brian Friels Dancing at Lughnasa.Ž As at the Maltz, she is a teacher, only this teacher, Kate Mundy, heads a family that includes her three sisters, a brother who is a wayward priest, and a nephew born out of wedlock to one of her sisters. How does she switch gears? Well, Kate is a schoolteacher,Ž Ms. Rowe says, laughing. But she does that from a sense of duty, right? She does, but she also has great hope, great joy as well. Kate is the breadwinner for the fam-ily and the keeper of the family, with all good intentions. She performs her actions, but she just at times doesnt have the best ability to communicate,Ž Ms. Rowe says. That is one area in which Ms. Rowe has little difficulty. She came to the Maltz in 2009 to head its conservatory after the school had lost many of its students amid a leader-ship change. She has since built that student base to more than 200 children and adults per semester, and the kids stage pro-ductions of such shows as High School Musical,Ž CatsŽ and Oklahoma!Ž each session. Its only natural that after all those years behind the scenes that Ms. Rowe was itching to appear before an audi-ence. Kate is her first role at Dramaworks, and second full role in Palm Beach County „ she helped inaugurate Flor-ida Stages sole season at the Kravis Center in Cane.Ž She is a versatile actress who numerous awards for her performances at American Stage Theatre Co. in St. Petersburg. She had not appeared onstage in about a year and a half, and has not auditioned for a role at the Maltz. Maltz educator stars in Dramaworks productionSEE ROWE, A29 X TAKE Heart singer Ann Wilson has a simple philosophy these days about how she and sister Nancy Wilson should go about their career. At this point in our career, at this point in our creative life, theres no point at all in not doing exactly what we feel like doing,Ž she said in a mid-May phone interview.

He is our very own Napoleon of opinions, quick to denounce us if we displease him. But Ive dated enough French men to know that his pomposity comes with a certain self-blindness; hes too busy pointing out our faults to notice his own. Last week I was in the kitchen alone, preparing dinner while every-one else was out. The house was quiet and settled, and I hummed under my breath as I set a pot of water on to boil. I had just begun chopping zuc-chini when the door opened and the Frenchman stepped in. I greeted him warmly and launched into the bright small talk that Americans have per-fected: I commented on the weather, talked about my day and stole glances of myself in the mirror behind him. What can I say? The mirror captured my midsection, everything from neck to waist, an angle I hadnt seen since I left home. I was surprised to notice that French food has been good to me „ a little too good „ and I kept peek-ing at my belly as I talked. The Frenchman continued to brood while I sliced bread and put a handful of olives in a bowl. Finally, he silenced my polite chitchat. Stop looking at yourself in the mirror,Ž he commanded. I laughed sheepishly and put both hands on my stomach. I was just checking this out,Ž I said. I patted my newly soft belly. I think it suits me.Ž But the Frenchman did not smile. Instead he raised one eyebrow in derision. Why would you be proud of that?ŽI tried for a casual shrug so he wouldnt know my feelings had been hurt, but he didnt even notice. He plowed ahead, condemning a woman who had stayed at the house earlier in the month, a woman who was thin to the point of emaciation, and said coldly that she, too, had a big belly. My face fell and I dropped my hands. The Frenchman left the kitchen, his tirade exhausted, and not long after my hurt turned to anger. Who was he to judge? No one, as it turns out.Because the next afternoon, I bumped into him on the terrace as I came in from a long walk around the village. It was the first day of nice weather wed had in a month, and everyone was taking advantage of the sun. From the looks of it, the French-man was headed out for a hike. And he had decided to wear shorts. Not knee-dusting cargo shorts, the kind men wear in Amer-ica. Not the mid-calf man capris that Europeans l ove, which are laughable but at least acceptable. No, he wore the tiniest pair of shorts Ive ever seen. They were impossibly short and improbably tight; he looked like a point guard for the 1974 Lakers. As he strutted past me, I cocked my own eyebrow. So this was our arbiter of taste? Q „ Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse.

A28 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe group has had huge success „ selling more than 35 million albums and notching 21 top 40 hit singles, headlin-ing the biggest of arenas along the way. The Wilson sisters, in particular, have had a major impact on music, being among the first women to break into the rock scene, helping to open doors for several generations of female artists that have followed. Ann Wilson is uni-versally hailed as one of rocks greatest female singers, while Nancy Wilson has shown that as a guitarist, a woman can hold her own with most any other gui-tarist around. The impact of the Wilson sisters and Heart was confirmed earlier this year when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. To say the least, Ann Wilson was blown away by the Hall of Fame recognition. If youre thinking of rock as an institution, it is definitely the highest honor,Ž she said. You cant go any higher than that. Its like getting an Oscar. So it was just an amazing feeling. Im still pro-cessing it. Im trying to figure out what it means to me in my life. I just came back home to Seattle after that and just kind of looking out here, looking out at the trees and the r ain going Whaaa tttt? Im honored. Its very amazing.Ž Now Wilson and Heart are getting back to work „ but doing something that very much meets the criteria of being fun. The band is touring this summer with drummer Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham, who is bringing out his Jason Bonhams Led Zeppelin ExperienceŽ show to open the evening. They stop June 17 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach. Then to close the shows, Bonham will join Heart to play an extended encore of Led Zeppelin songs. For musicians like the Wilson sisters, its obviously a kick to play Zeppelin songs with a musician who has direct ties to the band (he stepped in to take his fathers drummer slot when the other members of Led Zeppelin reunit-ed for a final performance in 2007 in London). Heart has often played Led Zeppelin songs in concert and the Wilson sisters consider the British rock legends one of their biggest influences. They were teachers for us,Ž Wilson said. I mean, we had a few different art-ists that we really listened to deeply and learned from. Paul Simon was another one. The Beatles was another one. But I think the thing about Zeppelin that was really, really special to us was the acoustic, the rock inside of the acoustic. They somehow managed to get all of those really unusual tunings and just so off-the-wall timing things into an acous-tic setting. I mean, Nancy Wilson just sat up and saluted when she heard that. Thats what shes like as a person and as a guitarist. I think for me, (Led Zeppelin singer) Robert Plant sang in my range, so I learned from him a lot about pronun-ciation, because rock singers, especially women rock singers, I think, some-times blow it with pronunciation,Ž she said. They really try to sound black or Southern when theyre not. So Robert Plant and Elton John, I think, were both responsible for helping me learn how to say words.Ž The Wilson sisters got a taste of performing with Bonham when Heart and the drummer teamed up to perform the Zeppelin classic Stairway To Heaven,Ž at Decembers Kennedy Center Hon-ors gala honoring the three surviving members of Zeppelin „ Plant, guitar-ist Jimmy Page and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones „ who seemed visibly moved by the performance. That collaboration sparked the idea for this summers tour. It was just such a sublime moment for all of us,Ž Wilson said. It just hit this place inside us and we just through hey, what would it be like if we went further? How about if he opens the show and then we do our show and then we get together and see what happens at the end, we jam at the end?Ž she said. So its going to be pretty exciting. Its real exciting for us.Ž The tour with Bonham figures to be another high point in what has been a busy, rewarding „ and yes, fun „ past couple of years for Heart. The period has seen the group release a forward-looking studio album, Fanatic,Ž which stands up to the best Heart albums of the 1970s (Dreamboat AnnieŽ and Dog and B utterfl yŽ) and 80s (1985s HeartŽ). Produced by Ben Mink, it found the group experimented liberally with son-ics on the spirited effort. The title song opens FanaticŽ with an attention-get-ting buzzing tone that makes one go Is that a guitar? A synthesizer? A combi-nation of the two? It doesnt matter. It just sounds cool. And thats just a start. Check out the electronic tones that greet the listener on Skin And BonesŽ and give the song a bit of a futuristic accent, or the techno-funk touches that flavor Million Miles.Ž Hes a guy who is really dead set in the present,Ž Wilson said of Mink. So hes going to pay respect to us and who we are, but hes always going to push us. And he really has a great sonic imagination and ability to come up with crazy ideas that really refer to us in an honest way.Ž Heart also released a career-spanning box set, Strange Euphoria,Ž which was popu-lated with a generous number of demos, rare live cuts and unreleased tunes spanning the bands career. The outtakes are a highlight of the set for Wilson. What I like most about it was the offthe-wall stuff, the real unusual, strange stuff, the between-takes funny stuff „ well we think its funny anyway „ the between takes stuff that just seems like a bunch of people screaming and jam-ming and having a party,Ž Wilson said. I mean, thats the kind of stuff that reminds me of what Heart really was at the beginning. It was a party band. We used to party together. And it went from that to playing clubs to playing shows. So on the box set there are a few points where it touches on that real loose, real jam-type feeling. Thats my favorite part.Ž Then there was an autobiography by the Wilson sisters and Heart called, Kicking and Dreaming,Ž which was published last fall. Wilson said she and Nancy didnt hold back in telling their story, which chronicled the various highs and lows of Hearts career, the bands music and the challenges that came with being among the first women to front, write music and play instruments in a hard-rocking band, as well as the private lives lived along the way. We decided pretty early on there was really no point in doing it if we were just going to do a big covered up white-wash,Ž she said. Whats the point? You might as well just stay silent if youre going to keep everything secret. So we told our story as openly and honestly as we can, having living children and everything. And so its a pretty interest-ing story.Ž Q HEARTFrom page A25 >>What: Heart, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience>>When: 7:30 p.m. June 17 >>Where: Cruzan Amphitheatre, South Florida Fairgrounds, 601-7 Sansburys Way, suburban West Palm Beach>>Cost: $43-$282 >>Info: www.cruzanamphitheatre.net If you go COURTESY PHOTO Nancy Wilson and Ann Wilson were inducted this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.Heart released its latest album, “Fanatic,” in 2013.

The kids are going to come see the show. Its good for them to see a play,Ž she says. She had auditioned for the season at Dramaworks and was tapped for the role. Ive always loved Dancing at Lughnasa. I remember reading it after col-lege. Its just such a beautiful script, so masterfully written, with interesting characters, and the way the story is told is so unique. Theres the beautiful char-acters, these beautiful, strong women,Ž she says. These women are facing changes. Its the Great Depression. They are single because many of the men of their gen-eration died in World War I. A knitting factory threatens to end two of the sis-ters cottage glove industry. And the womens brother? His notions turn their Roman Catholic ideology on its head. It is a lot to take in, but there are similarities between the Mundy sisters and Ms. Rowes family. She grew up in a large, Catholic family in Idaho during the 1970s, also a time of great change. I think every family can look at this family and identify somehow because families struggle, families thrive, fami-lies argue. They love each other, they try to help each other, so I think theres a family unit in this particular play for everybody,Ž she says. Then there is the play itself.Friel is such a great writer and I wanted to stretch my wings into it,Ž she says. Meaning?Ill tell you that Im being pushed. Im really learning a lot. Every day, it seems Im learning something new, so that to me is really exciting. Im growing a lot artistically,Ž she says. Every play you do is different. For me, every play Im doing is my favorite play.Ž Also a favorite: Working in the Dramaworks space. The stage is long and narrow, and the Don & Ann Brown Theatre seats just a couple hundred people. The intimacy of it is really great, and having your audience really close,Ž she says. That makes the meaning of the play all the more poignant. You know there is great sorrow I this place but there also is great hope in it. There is happiness. Even in the depths of despair these women are still continuing. Theyre trying and theyre helping and theyre looking. Kate still has hope.

Fresh Fork Publishing. 344 pages. $15.95. Growing out of the situations devel-oped in the authors debut novel, Tell No Lies,Ž this pow-erhouse legal thrill-er focuses its atten-tion somewhat less on the legal dimen-sions than on the tormented relation-ships of the main characters. Ms. Compton probes the slow disintegration of a loving relation-ship once questions of trust and forgive-ness corrode its core. Keep No SecretsŽ reintroduces St. Louis district attorney Jack Hilliard sev-eral years after his personal and profes-sional disgrace. Jack has gone a long way toward redeeming himself. His betrayed wife, Claire, has allowed him back into the family. His past missteps have been largely forgiven by the community he strives to serve with diligence. But can he truly be trusted? Will there always be a shadow of doubt about his integrity? Can he ever totally free himself from a tainted image? These questions become white hot when Jenny Dodson, the beautiful law-yer who tempted Jack before and to whom Claire believes he has an addic-tion, returns to town fearing for her life and needing Jacks help. The one night Jenny and Jack spent together provided her alibi when she was tried for mur-der. Jack, to his disgrace and lingering shame, saved her by honestly admitting to the indiscretion. Already losing the fight with himself by being in touch with Jenny without fully considering his obligations to Claire, Jack is caught in the emotional crossfire of divided per-sonal and professional loyalties. A second, but related plot line develops when Jacks sons girlfriend accuses Jack of sexual assault. His relationship with his son, Michael, has been frosty ever since Jack betrayed Claire. Can Michael „ can Claire „ believe Jacks innocence given his past indiscretion? Did that addiction overwhelm his good sense and self-control when he con-fronted a young woman bearing a strik-ing resemblance to Jenny? Can Jack sit back and trust that the legal system he knows so well will take its proper course, or must he take action that further jeopardizes his most important relationships and his sense of himself as an honorable man? As the author skillfully advances her plot, the possible answers to such ques-tions turn over and over, and the novel becomes at once a morality play, psychological drama and legal puzzle. Difficult to classify, Keep No SecretsŽ is very easy to like. Its a true page-turner in which the stakes are high on several lev-els. Some of Ms. Comptons finest work comes in the delineation of the two teenage charac-ters, Michael and his girlfriend, Celeste. There is power-ful verisimilitude in their secrecy, in Michaels uncertain-ties about the choic-es he needs to make and his feelings for his parents, and in the causes of Celestes desperation that lead her to make the unfounded charge. Skillful as well is the balance of what the readers know before the characters find out, and what the characters know before the readers find out. Ms. Comp-tons decisions about when to reveal new information and just how much to reveal keep the tension electrifying. Dialogue is strong throughout, and particularly appealing is the presenta-tion of interrogation Q&A. After the story closes, the author provides a list of discussion group ques-tions that reinforce the relevance of the novels issues to a wide range of readers. Though this aid has become customary in todays publishing world, in this case it helps to underscore the complexity of the novels issues and construction „ and the room Ms. Comp-ton has left for read-ers to learn about themselves through learning about the characters.About the authorJulie Compton, who lives in the Orlando area, is one of a grow-ing number of first-rate authors who have chosen, after winning contracts with trade publishers, to take the self-publishing route. On the strength of Keep No SecretsŽ and her previous work (I greatly admired her standalone Rescuing OliviaŽ), she deserves a large readership.

NoThe opening moments of The PurgeŽ are cause for excitement. A la A Clockwork Orange,Ž we hear classical music as we view murders, beatings and gunfights. For a brief second we think, Wow. This is smart and really has something to say about society.Ž But as the film proceeds, we quickly realize it has neither the ambition nor the desire for social commentary and intel-ligence. The year is 2022 „ yes, a mere nine years from now „and America has never been better. Unemployment is at 1 percent, crime is at an all-time low and everything seems copacetic. Why? Because of the purge: one night a year in which all crime is legal. Generally accepted by the populace and government-approved, it allows people to release the beast and purge,Ž i.e., get all the crime and hate out of their system at once so theres peace the rest of the year. Family man James (Ethan Hawke) is a capitalist to the extreme: He sells high-tech security systems to the well-off so they can ensure their safety on purge night (his neighbor Grace (Arija Bareikis) calls him out for profiting off their fear). Believ-ing theyre safe inside James home are his noble wife Mary (Lena Headey), their annoying son Charlie (Max Burk-holder), who looks just like his mother, and their rebellious teenage daughter Zoey (Adelaide Kane), whos ecstatic her boyfriend (Tony Oller) found a way to sneak in before lockdown. Although The PurgeŽ touches on themes of morality and ethical dilem-mas, it quickly ignores those ideas in favor of home-invader drama. No sur-prise there, as writer/director James DeMonaco knows the box office does better with fighting and gunshots than with thinking and existential themes. So is it a good thriller? Not really.Empathetic/stupid Charlie lets a homeless stranger (Edwin Hodge) inside, which is contrived, and that leads a group of murderers to the house. Given that James and Mary support the purge and all the good it does,Ž its ironic that people who relish the homi-cidal freedom attack the family. What follows is standard home-invasion fare, including unlikely heroism, a power outage, stupidity, blood, fights, guns, more stupidity and a weak end-ing. Two highlights worth noting: The premise, which is an intriguing idea worth exploring in greater depth, and the performance of Rhys Wakefield as the main villain. Hes instantly recog-nizable because hes the only intruder to take his mask off, for no good reason other than to allow the audience to see his chilly eyes and cold glare. Hes a bet-ter villain than the film deserves. Even if you forgive The PurgeŽ for being void of social commentary when it easily couldve provided it, theres no forgiving the film for being a so-so action thriller. Trust me: The best way to purge your memory of this is to not see it at all. Q LATEST FILMS‘The Purge’ i l G p i c dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Platinum Dunes, one of the production companies involved in the lm, is headed by Michael Bay ("Pain & Gain"). CAPSULESThe Reluctant Fundamentalist +++ 1/2 (Riz Ahmed, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson) Pakistani-born and Princeton-educated Changez (Ahmed) has success in New York City, but racial profiling after 9/11 makes it hard for him to live in America. Strong performances and a nicely crafted story from director Mira Nair (Monsoon WeddingŽ) make this a must-see. Rated R.Fast & Furious 6 ++ 1/2 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Luke Evans) Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) convinces Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) to help him track a quick-strike rogue mili-tary bad guy (Evans). There are some notable lulls, but the action is exciting and its a worthy installment for the franchise. Rated PG-13.The Hangover Part III + 1/2 (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong) A gangster (John Goodman) forces the Wolfpack to find Mr. Chow (Jeong). Its an unfunny and unneces-sary third wheel that proves writer/director Todd Phillips has long since run out of ideas for these characters. Rated R. Q

New Vendors WelcomeCALL 561-670-7473 www.wpbantiqueand” eamarket.com Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Patience is called for as you await a deci-sion about that project youre eager to launch. Meanwhile, try to set aside more time to share with that special person in your life. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid becoming involved in a workplace dispute early in the week by insisting both sides submit their stands to a neu-tral arbitrator. Things begin to cool off by Thursday. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) It promises to be a busy but productive week for the Big Cat. The pace slows by Friday, allowing you to catch up on matters you put aside but that now need your attention. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suddenly disruptive family situation is best handled with a cool, calm and collected response. Wait until things settle to let off all that pent-up emotional steam. Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your practical side dominates the week as you reassess your finances to make some sensible adjustments in what you plan to spend and what you expect to save. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected meeting with a former colleague opens some interesting possibilities. But you need to press for full disclosure before making a decision. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent flurry of activity eases by midweek, giving you time to readjust your disrupted schedule and make new plans for a weekend getaway. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Youre usually the one who gives advice. But now its time to open yourself up to counsel from friends who have your best interests at heart. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find resistance to your call for a full inquiry into a work-place problem. But by weeks end even the most rigid naysayers begin to come around.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35The Dish: Chicken and waffle The Place: Bay Bays Chicken & Waffles, 2400 Okeechobee Blvd. (just west of Congress Avenue), West Palm Beach; 429-3796 or baybays.com. The Price: $8.95 The Details: Coolinary Caf possibly was the first place in Palm Beach County to intro-duce diners to what has been a national com-fort food trend: fried chicken and waffles. But as much as we love Tim Lipmans take on the dish, Bay Bays kicks it up a notch with some of the juiciest, crispiest fried chicken weve had in some time. Its a dish like this that keeps us driving back to Okeechobee Boulevard. The buttermilk-marinated fried chicken has a hearty dose of cayenne and other peppers to give it a healthy kick. Bay Bays, tucked into a space that has been home to everything from a drive-up convenience store to a French bakery to the Eggsotic Bistro breakfast spot, has an ambi-tious menu on which fried chicken reigns supreme. The cuisine is a fusion of Southern, Caribbean and Asian influences, but fried chicken soup, fettuccine and potato salad also are among the offerings. And as much as we wanted to try the collards, macaroni and grits, we suspect we will keep returning for that hum-ble waffle, served just right. Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Kabuki is traditionally known as a classical Japanese dance-drama with highly stylized song, dance and mime. However, Kabuki Sushi Thai and Tapas in Palm Beach Gardens has changed the meaning by bringing drama and entertainment to its customers in a new way „ through its cui-sine. Our concept is fun and we offer more fusion than any other Japanese and Thai res-taurant,Ž says Jate Yam-siriwong, manager and partner of Kabuki Sushi Thai and Tapas of Palm Beach Gardens. Originally from New York City, Mr. Yamsiriwong has been in the restaurant business since he was young, working in all kinds of cuisine. But he says working the front of the house of Thai and Japa-nese restaurants is where he gravitated. I found myself in the kitchen a lot because I wanted to learn,Ž he says. Its important to know everything about the restaurant business, but I love being with the customers the most.Ž After moving to Florida four years ago, Mr. Yamsiriwong moved to the West Coast, where his uncle owned Thai restau-rants in Naples. He says he never thought he would move to Florida, but after arriv-ing, he became part of the business. After selling the restaurants in Naples and moving to the east coast of Florida, he says that an opportunity had arrived. In 2011, Mr. Yamsiriwong opened Kabuki in West Palm Beach with his uncle, aunt and brother. Last month, Kabuki opened a sec-ond location at PGA Commons. The concept at Kabuki offers authentic food in a tapas style, enabling custom-ers to taste multiple items from the large menu. Kabuki also offers swinging chairs on the patio, where patrons can sip wine and socialize at happy hour. Words just arent enough to explain what were all about,Ž he says. You have to come in and experience it to really understand what we do here.Ž Name: Jate Yamsiriwong Age: 41 Original Hometown: New York City Restaurant: Kabuki Sushi Thai Tapas, 5080 PGA Blvd., Suite 105, Palm Beach Gardens; 776-8778 Mission: We strongly believe in treating others how you expect to be treated; this is what we do here with our custom-ers. We serve a delicious variety of food and provide a fun atmosphere.Ž Cuisine: Japanese and Thai cuisine Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear a special-made shoe. It looks like a dress shoe, but its really comfortable.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Oh, I love Japanese food. My favorite thing is Hamachi Jalapeos, everyone should try them!Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be in the restaurant industry? This is a very tough business to be in. When you are in it, make sure that you dont forget where you come from and what your goal is.Ž Q In the kitchen with...Jate Yamsiriwong, Kabuki Sushi Thai Tapas BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Diners and dads can savor the flavors, specials of summerYAMSIRIWONG SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Tasting menu at V&A: Vic & Angelos will offer a summer tasting menu.
