Two other Good Samaritans „ Crystal Brunson and Susan Carson „ stopped to assist the first victim and all tended to Mr. Sotos injury. Each of these individuals risked their own lives that night.

His face is cast in careworn struggle, and for good reason. Writing is like driving nails with the wrong hand, or walking a mile of sum-mer swamp, or sinking 100 fence posts in rocky country that rises 1,000 feet over half a mile. Its hard to do well without suffering. So Twain has girded himself for the endeavor: Hes plumped the pillows on his four-poster bed before leaning comfortably back. Hes rolled up his sleeves, pulled a wool blanket to his waist, and situated a pad of paper on his lap. Theres probably a cup of tea sitting around somewhere (alcoholic elixirs were not Twains problem). Finally, and mustering all his strength, hes managed to heft the single great tool of his trade, as it was then practiced „ a one-ounce pen. Or maybe its a pencil. Whatever it is, its not a computer. Its not even a typewriter. That particular game-changer was invented in various incarnations no less than 52 times, Joan Acocella once report-ed in The New Yorker magazine. One popular version, first produced by an arms manufacturer in the 1870s when Mark Twain was hitting his stride (hard to do in bed, I know), appeared because the rifle market had declined precipi-tously after the Civil War. It was a Remington typewriter, mounted on a sewing machine stand. But in the photo, Twain uses only a pen „ nothing more than a pointed stick that can mark paper. With that Paleolithic tool, he changed the way we understand being human, or being a human American. Paradoxically, the first book ever writtenŽ on a typewriter was his: Life on the Mississippi,Ž published in 1883. He didnt actually write it, however; he probably dictated penned copy to a sec-retary, then submitted the typewritten version to his publisher. Ive worked up a business here that would satisfy any man, I dont care who he is,Ž Twain noted in chapter 43. Five years ago, lodged in an attic; live in a swell house now with a mansard roof and all the modern inconveniences.Ž He achieved that reality not at the helm of a riverboat but in bed, assisted by Johannes Gutenbergs invention of the printing press, in 1440. Now, typewriters have become dinosaurs, even deader than pointed sticks. Now we have computers, Google and Facebook, and no Mark Twain. But I think Twain would have leaped into the center of the new technolo-gies. He would have embraced them with his own brand of genius, just as he embraced the pointed stick and the type-writer. Twain was a modernist in two senses: He saw great promise in technol-ogy, depending on who was using it. And he was skeptical of all bloviating claims, especially in matters of politics and religion where evidence is so frequently anecdotal, and so deservedly suspect. I have a religion „ but you will call it blasphemy,Ž he once wrote to his older brother, Orion Clemens. It is that there is a God for the rich man but none for the poor.Ž That thought is so modern it remains contemporary. To make such an acute judgment „ to be able to think so clearly about the worlds violent eddies and swirls, and about its cascading injustices „ remains the goal of any serious writer, whether a tragic or a comic stylist. Judgment, without which any writing is vacuous, requires experience and thought no matter what the technology of the moment may be, or the tempera-ment of the writer. I realized this again last week when I finally signed up for Facebook, breaking ranks not only with antiquity, but with the sluggish habits of my own demo-graphic: males between the ages of 125 and 175, or thereabouts. Chromosome Y baby boomers are among the least likely to take part in the online parade of social media, statistics show. The epiphany hit me right between the eyes when I read a single entry from a much younger parade goer, Santiago De Choch. He did exactly what Twain did „ he garnered experience somewhere (Israel, rather than on the Mis-sissippi River), spent the next 15 years thinking about it, and then picked up a writing tool. Agree or not with Santiagos sugarfree pessimism, his words suggest that Facebook is just another pointed stick. It offers the same potential as the pen or typewriter to architects of thought and language: the potential to change the way we think about being human, or being a human American. Heres what he wrote: Getting drunk after visiting Yad Vashem, the holocaust museum in Jerusalem, I had a couple of insights: 1) Theres no God. 2) Germans are shit. A decade and a half later, older and hopefully a bit wiser, I have revised those insights. 1) Theres no God. 2) Humans are shitƒŽ Now I can write him back if I want to, on Facebook. I can bicker with a pointed sticker, which makes me a modern man with social lan. Santiago, No theyre not. You must be thinking of monkeys. The people I admire dont do holocausts. Its the mon-keys among us.Ž Twain scratched the issue too, coming down mostly on the side of Santiago. I am quite sure (that) in matters concerning religion and politics a mans reasoning powers are not above the monkeys,Ž he wrote. And he wrote it with a pointed stick. Q „ Mr. Williams is on Facebook at

Terror bytes: Edward Snowden and the architecture of oppressionEdward Snowden revealed himself recently as the whistleblower responsible for perhaps the most significant release of secret government documents in U.S. history. The former CIA staffer and ana-lyst for the private intelligence consult-ing firm Booz Allen Hamilton spoke to journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poi-tras and Barton Gellman in Hong Kong, providing convincing evidence that the U.S. government, primarily the Nation-al Security Agency, is conducting mas-sive, unconstitutional surveillance glob-ally, and perhaps most controversially, on almost all, if not all, U.S. citizens. The chorus of establishment condemnation was swift and unrelenting. Jeffrey Toobin, legal pundit, quickly blogged that Snowden is a grandiose narcissist who deserves to be in prison.Ž New York Times columnists chimed in, with Thomas Friedman writing, I dont believe that Edward Snowden, the leaker of all this secret material, is some heroic whis-tle-blower.Ž His colleague David Brooks engaged in speculative psychoanalysis of Snowden, opining, (t)hough obviously terrifically bright, he could not success-fully work his way through the institution of high school. Then he failed to navigate his way through community college.Ž Snowdens educational path has attracted significant attention. U.S. sena-tors oh-so-gently questioned NSA Direc-tor Gen. Keith B. Alexander and others at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, including liberal Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, echoing Brooks incredulity that someone with a GED could possibly hoodwink the entire U.S. intelligence apparatus. Alexander confessed, In the IT arena, in the cyber arena, some of these people have skills to operate networks. That was his job for the most part; he had great skills in the area. The rest of it youve hit on the head. We do need to go back and look at the processes where we went wrong.Ž Legendary whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg countered the criticism, writing, In my estimation, there has not been in American history a more important leak than Edward Snowdens release of NSA material „ and that definitely includes the Pentagon Papers 40 years ago. Snowdens whistleblowing gives us the possibility to roll back a key part of what has amounted to an executive coup against the U.S. Constitution.ŽSnowdens historic leak revealed what he calls an architecture of oppressionŽ „ a series of top-secret surveillance pro-grams that go far beyond what has been publicly known to date. The first was an order from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requesting a division of the phone giant Verizon to hand over all call detail recordsŽ for calls to or from the U.S. and locations abroad, or all calls within the U.S., including local calls. In other words, metadata for every phone call that Verizon Business Network Ser-vices processed was to be delivered to the NSA on a daily basis. Another document was a slide presentation revealing a pro-gram dubbed PRISM,Ž which allegedly empowers NSA snoops access to all the private data stored by Internet giants like Microsoft, AOL, Skype, Google, Apple and Facebook, including email, video chats, photos, files transfers and more. Snowden released Presidential Policy Directive 20 „ a top-secret memo from President Barack Obama directing U.S. intelligence agencies to draw up a list of targets for U.S. cyberattacks. Final-ly came proof of the program called Boundless Informant,Ž which creates a global heat mapŽ detailing the source countries of the 97 billion intercepted electronic records collected by the NSA in the month of March 2013. Among the top targets were Iran, Pakistan, Egypt and Jordan. The leaked map color-codes countries: red for hot,Ž then yellow and green. Last March, the U.S. was yellow, providing the NSA with close to 2.9 bil-lion intercepts. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit immediately after the programs were revealed, arguing that the practice is akin to snatching every Americans address book „ with annota-tions detailing whom we spoke to, when we talked, for how long, and from where. It gives the government a comprehensive record of our associations and public movements, revealing a wealth of detail about our familial, political, professional, religious, and intimate associations.Ž Edward Snowden, at the time of this writing, is in hiding, presumably still in Hong Kong, where he told the South China Morning Post, I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality.Ž In the videotaped inter-view he gave to Greenwald and Poitras, Snowden spoke of his reasons behind the leak: Sitting at my desk, (I) certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge, to even the president. ... This is something thats not our place to decide. The public needs to decide whether these programs and policies are right or wrong.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. OPINIONLife after the Affordable Health Care Act U c a t t a W amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly BY BR BARBARAThe Affordable Health Care Act is based on lofty prin-ciples that each of us would ideally like to have incorporated into the health care system. Unfortunately, the way it is written and the amount of time allowed for its imple-mentation make that an impossibility. Effective Oct. 1, insurance companies will cancel single payer insurance poli-cies that dont comply with the required benefits dictated by the Affordable Health Care Act. States are trying to deal with the Health Care Act but due to time restraints have been unable to come up with satisfactory resolutions. As things stand now once the bare bones insurance policies are cancelled the options will be a more expensive insurance policy with higher premiums and high deduct-ibles or to pay the penalty of $95 not to insure. That is leaving a very large seg-ment of the population without medi-cal insurance and the result will be the overcrowding of emergency rooms at hospitals and how are the hospitals going to absorb the increased costs? The only state according to my research which is anywhere close to being able to implement the affordable health care act is New York State. The reason for this is that they started working on this issue a year ago and have 80 employees in place and a computer system able to handle the volume. Nevertheless, New York and other states have put off negotiating with insurers for lower premium rates and some states wont require standardized deductibles and copays. Some states are trying to scale back the offerings of the Affordable Health Care Act while some are just giving up on running their own exchanges and leaving it to the Obama Administration to enforce. And some states are not even trying to filter health plans by provider networks or customer satisfaction scores. What will happen in 2014 when employers with 50-200 employees are required to provide health care insur-ance to all their employees? Although premiums are suppose to be regulated, this is not happening. How will the enormous cost to these small businesses be covered? Raises will stop, some busi-nesses will use inferior materials to cut costs and others will pass on the expense to the consumer. The only business for sure that can survive in tact is high tech because of their very low over-head expenses. The small business has no choice but to expand the coverage because the penalties for not covering their employees is too high. The con-cept was for the small business to pool their risks with other small businesses at exchanges but the difficulty in setting up the exchange is monumental. There is, also, another component of the Affordable Health Care Act that most certainly will be challenged in the Supreme Court as being discriminatory and unconstitutional. That is the well-ness program that Employers can incor-porate in their businesses. The well-ness programs are incentive programs with financial rewards and penalties to employees worth up to 50 percent of their premiums to exercise, lose weight, eat more healthy foods, lower cholester-ol and high blood pressure. It is already being opposed by the National Part-nership for Women and Families as an unjustifiable disparate impact violation of civil liberties and by the Equal Oppor-tunity Commission as it discriminates against older people who have legitimate health issues. One of the promises of the Affordable Health Care Act was that insurers could not turn down people with pre-existing conditions, but that is ineffective. There are three definite changes that have already had a positive impact. One is the expansion of coverage for children under their parents policy up to the age of 26; the expanded coverage of drugs for seniors and incentive programs to reduce costs in hospitals. No one has any idea what is going to happen to the health care system as a result of the Affordable Health Care Act. One thing is for sure, something is going to have to happen. The Affordable Health Care Act is creating more society problems that none of us want to have to face. So, I ask the question, what will life be after the Affordable Health Care Act? Q

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESReady for disasterInclude your pets in your family’s preparedness plans BY DR. MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickTornadoes, hurricanes, fires, floods and earthquakes „ there are few places on Earth that are not vulnerable to one or more natural disasters. Weve learned from countless disasters that people often will put their own lives at risk „ and the lives of first responders as well „ if there are no options for relocat-ing with their animal companions. Public planning now includes pets, and your own planning should, too. Here are the basics you need to know: Q Have a plan. Prepare for all possibilities, and make sure everyone in your family knows what to do. Try to figure out now whats most likely for you and your commu-nity, and how you will respond. Where will you go? What will you take? You need to get these answers in advance. Get to know your neighbors, and put a plan in place to help each other out. Find out from local shelters and veterinary organizations „ and your familys own veterinarian „ what emer-gency response plans are in place and how you fit into them in case of a disaster. Q ID your pets. Many, if not most, animals will survive a disaster. But too many will never see their families again if theres no way to determine which pet belongs to which family. Thats why pets should always wear a collar and identification tags with your cellphone number and the numbers of a couple of out-of-area contacts. Better still is the additional permanent identification that cant slip off, such as a tattoo or an embedded microchip. Q Practice preventive care. Disease follows disaster, which is why keeping a pet as healthy as possible with up-to-date vaccinations is essential. Prepare a file with up-to-date medical records, your pets microchip or tattoo numbers, your veteri-narians phone number and address, feed-ing and medication instructions, and recent pictures of your animals. Trade copies of emergency files with another pet-loving friend or family member. Its a good idea for someone else to know about your pet, should anything happen to you. Q Have restraints ready. Even normally calm pets can freak out under the stress of an emergency, especially if injured. You should be prepared to restrain your pet „ for his safety and the safety of others. Keep leashes, muzzles and carriers ready for emergencies. The means to transport your pet shouldnt be something you have to find and pull from the rafters of your garage. Harnesses work better than col-lars at keeping panicky pets safe. Shipping crates are probably the least-thought-of pieces of emergency equipment for pet owners, but are among the most important. Sturdy crates keep pets safe and give you more options for housing your pets if you have to leave your home. Q Keep supplies on hand. Keep several days worth of pet food and safe drinking water ready to go in the event of a disaster, as well as any necessary medicines. Canned food is better in an emergency, so lay in a couple of cases, and dont forget to pack a can opener with your emergency supplies. For cats, keep an extra bag of litter on hand. And pack lots of plastic bags for dealing with waste. Q Learn first aid. Pet-supply stores sell ready-made first-aid kits, or you can put your own together fairly easily with the help of any pet-related first-aid book or website. Keep a first-aid book with your supplies. If you check around in your com-munity, you should be able to find a pet first-aid class to take that will give you the basic knowledge you need. Q Be prepared to help. You may be lucky enough to survive a disaster nearly untouched, but others in your community wont be so fortunate. Check out groups that train volunteers for disaster response, and consider going through the training. Disaster-relief workers do everything from distributing food to stranded animals to helping reunite pets with their families, and helping find new homes for those animals who need them. Volunteering in a pinch is not only a good thing to do, its also the right thing for anyone who cares about ani-mals and people. Q Making evacuation plans that include your pet will leave you better prepared to cope with disasters of all kinds. >> Daisy is a 2-year old spayed Border Terrier mix. She weighs 45 pounds.

Then, using a thin metal rod with a round tip, he gently massages the inside of each lid. Mr. Liu told a reporter for the Chengdu Business Daily in April that he had never had an accident (though the reporter apparently could not be enticed to experience the treatment himself, preferring merely to observe), and a highly satisfied customer reported afterward that his eyes felt moistŽ and his vision clearer.Ž A local hospital official said eye-shaving can scrape away scar tissue and stimulate the eyes to lubricate the eye sockets. Q Cultural diversityQ One of Aprils most popular Internet images consisted of face shots of the current 20 contestants for Miss South Korea „ revealing that all 20 appeared eerily similar, and Westernized. Com-mented one website, Koreas plastic surgery mayhem is finally converging on the same face.Ž Wrote a South Kore-an commenter, Girls here consider eye surgery just like using makeup.Ž Wrote another, I loved this episode of the Twilight Zone.Ž The country has the highest rate of cosmetic surgery per capita in the world. Q Michinoku Farm of Tokyo finally agreed in May to withdraw its whale meat dog chews, but only after angering environmentalists for having favored the countrys pampered canines over endangered North Atlantic fin whales, which were the source of the chews. The meat was purchased from Iceland, which openly defies the international moratorium on whale meat. (Japan offi-cially disagrees with world consensus on which species are endangered.) Q A marriage-encouraging initiative in the Sehore district of Indias Madhya Pradesh state awards gifts and financial assistance to couples agreeing to wed in mass ceremonies, but the country also suffers from a notorious toilet shortage. Consequently, the district announced in May that to qualify for the government benefits, the groom must submit to offi-cials a photo of himself beside his own toilet to prove that he and his wife will have home sanitation. Q Latest religious messagesQ A Saudi judge ruled in April that it was finally time for Ali al-Khawahir, 24, to suffer for stabbing another boy in the back when Ali was 14. The victim was paralyzed, and under Saudi justice, Ali must also be struck with paralysis or else raise the equivalent of about $260,000 to compensate the victim. Q Saudi cleric Abdullah Mohamed alDaoud in May urged his 100,000 Twitter followers to sexually harass female cashiersŽ to discourage them from working outside the home.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Real estate rebounding with the help of quick turnarounds BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” IT COMES DOWN TO THIS QUESTION: CAN REAL ESTATE investors flip homes successfully through the sec-ond half of 2013 without flipping out of business, or are the evolving markets on both the southeast and southwest coasts increasingly perilous for quick-buck ambition? The answers may be both yes and yes, according to Realtors and inves-tors alike in the distinctive and sometimes dissimilar markets from Palm Beach Gardens on the east to Naples, Fort Myers and Punta Gorda on the west. Here, through the eyes of the experts in several markets, Florida Weekly glances at both the opportunities and the complexities inherent in flipping „ the investment art of buying prop-erty then reselling it in short order at a significant profit. Although the process came to symbolize poor judgment and greedy excess during the recession-ary years between 2006 and 2009, thats changed significantly. First off,Ž says Rick Shaffner, a former Michigan bank president and now partner in a consortium of five investors who own about 300 rental prop-erties on the southwest coast, I wouldnt call it flipping „ thats a derogatory term going back to 2006-2007. Guys were going in and not even clos-ing these deals, buying a property for a hundred grand when they already had it sold for $150,000, and taking $50,000 off the table and letting some-body else close it.Ž For many banks and loan agencies, not to mention flippers, it was an anything-goes time. The flipping thing got a bad rep because there wasnt any real value added,Ž says Tom Weekes, a Keller-Williams Realtor based in Charlotte County who teams with his wife, Gay Weekes, to do busi-ness from Cape Coral north to Sarasota. It was just a crazy market that allowed people to make a lot of money provided they flipped it over quickly and didnt get caught without a chair when the music stopped, so to speak.Ž Now, however, home-buying loans remain much more difficult to get from banks, and investors come to the game with money in hand. Investors are also much more likely to restore the properties they buy nowadays „ often they have to if theyre buying foreclosed homes that have sat vacant „ adding value before they sell, or renting them out for the time being. That way, they can capitalize on strong rental markets and bet with a bit more security on increasing home values as investment opportuni-ties begin to shrink. I am seeing investors hold for rentals as rental prices are up,Ž says Kathryn Klar, a real estate agent for Lang Realty in Palm Beach Gardens. The comment might apply to many communities where investors appear to be profiting significantly, or waiting just a bit longer to profit significantly. And now, nobody appears to be questioning flippers for lacking virtue or value. This is taking care of business,Ž says Jim Green, a Realtor based in Lee County. Too often society ignores blight and proceeds to build anew in other places. Blight begets blight. These restorations cause values to go up, improving the tax base for the subject property and the surrounding com-munity.Ž As Naples-based, John R. Wood Realtors Karyn and Rowan Samuel see it, every transaction gen-erates cash; each sale affects the local economy,Ž says Mr. Samuel. Real estate has a tremendous trickle down effect on multiple industries „ from the sellers cashing out, to the builders and contractors, the brokerages and Realtors, the closing agents, all the way down to retail „ to furniture and car sales, to dining and entertainment. An improving real estate market (helped by flippers) is an economic powerhouse, and I think we are starting to see that, especially in areas like Naples and Miami that are in-demand real estate markets.ŽCause for excitement?All that said, last month, Realtytrac Inc., a market analyst, published a survey that identified the 25 hottest markets for flipping homes in the United States, based on sales from the first quarter of 2012 through the first quarter of 2013. The company defined a flip as the buying and reselling of a home within six months. First, it picked 600 markets nationwide where flips occurred. From those, it picked metro areas where at least 500 homebuyers flipped their prop-erties in 2012, winnowing that number down to metro markets with a 9 percent annual increase in home values over a year, or more. From that grouping, finally, the surveyors listed the 25 top markets. They awarded list position based in part on gross profit defined as a per-centage of the first selling price, explains com-pany Vice President Daren Blomquist, in an online description of the process. Thus, if a buyer picked up a home for $150,000 and sold it for $200,000 within six months, the gross profit of $50,000 would amount to 33 percent of the original price. On the Realtytrac list, five of the first 10 markets appear in Florida, including Orlando (No. 1 in the nation), Tampa (No. 4), Miami (No. 6), Lakeland (No. 7) and Sarasota (No. 9). Lee Countys Fort Myers/Cape Coral „ the market once ranked first in the nation for foreclosures „ came in at 20 on the list. The results led Mr. Blomquist to offer a rosy prediction for those with the capital to flip homes in 2013. Flipping homes „ buying, rehabbing and reselling for a profit usually within about 90 days „ will likely become more favorable for investors in 2013 as home prices are expected to rise,Ž he writes. And while buying homes as rentals still offers a solid rate of return in many markets, many buy-and-sell investors typically flip properties peri-


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 NEWS A9 odically to fund their ongoing rental purchases.ŽOptimism’s pitfallsBut experts on the ground may not be so quickly optimistic, or so blithe in analyzing the 2012 numbers, depending on the given market and on what some call the hidden costs. If its a foreclosure market, its all being purchased by investors now,Ž says Tara Bua-Bell, a Realtor and part-ner with her mother Emily Bua in Naples Estate Properties. Id say for those investors in the last six to nine months especially, it becomes a ques-tion of whether theyre going to make a profit. Collier County was not as affected as some outlying counties or com-munities like Lehigh Acres and Cape Coral by the recession. I think Real-tytrac sometimes does a disservice because theyre not looking at indica-tors like that. If youre a market hit hardest, your numbers are likely to go up.Ž In Lee Countys Cape Coral, together with nearby Lehigh Acres one of the markets hit hardest in the United States by foreclosures, thats precisely whats been happening, says Frank Ehrhardt, a Realtor with Cape Realty. Mr. Ehrhardt flipped houses in Los Angeles and Chicago before moving to Cape Coral three years ago to invest in an opportunity himself. Its a perfect time to have gotten into this because we bought our home at close to the bottom,Ž he says. The low-range market is where its easiest to get in, and its where a lot of the flipping happens. Groups and companies buy in, and were seeing a lot of individuals, too.Ž But sometimes, he says, those individuals regret their investments because they dont see unanticipated costs before they invest. Still, flipping is becoming extremely competitive,Ž he notes. In 25 purchase offers Mr. Ehrhardt has made for his clients so far this year, at least 20 have have faced com-peting bids on the same day, he says. That experience is common. We recently listed a Cape Coral home that was attractive to investors and had five above-asking-price offers within 48 hours,Ž says Jim Green. That has become the current norm.Ž But Mr. Green echoes the voices of several of his colleagues by question-ing the easy optimism of the Realty-trac survey, and data like it. The gross profit numbers used by the media have been very misleading,Ž he says. They exclude disaster remediation, renovation and improvements „ say $20,000 on the average home pur-chased at $138,000. Typical cost-of-sale in our market is about 9 percent. If that home is sold at $189,000, the math says the investor made 9 percent on a $158,000 high-risk investment, less purchase fees and carrying costs.Ž Mr. Green was using some other figures from Realtytrac in his example of built-in but unseen costs, in which the company described the Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade metropolis as the number one market in the U.S. for flipping (taken together, those com-munities ranked ahead of Orlando). There, from the first quarter of 2012 through the first quarter of 2013, about 4,300 houses were flipped by inves-tors who bought in at an average price of $138,000 or so, and sold at an aver-age price of about $189,000, within six months. And finally, investors worry about other unseen factors, too „ shadow inventories, for example. We think now we have an 18 to 36-month period left (for these invest-ments),Ž says Mr. Shaffner. Its more difficult to find deals that make sense on a rental program now. And theres a caveat: Is there a shadow inventory? Are there a lot of homes that havent been released by the banks or Freddie Mac yet? Are they holding on to them and releasing them slowly because they cant afford the capital hit?Ž Nevertheless, Mr. Shaffner and his team of investors who can use fam-ily members to contract and restore properties, are sticking to an original plan defined in dollars per square foot. In 2009 they started out paying about $35 a square foot for homes in Lehigh Acres and Cape Coral. Now theyre paying about $55, and their bet „ this is the gamble based on savvy and experience „ is that values will go up to about $75 per square foot. And thats when they might sell significant numbers of their 300-plus rental properties, he says. All of which seems like an opportunity to live with a lot of stress. But thats the life of an entrepreneur „ any entrepreneur, but especially real estate investors, he says. Anybody whos an entrepreneur wakes up every morning unem-ployed,Ž he explains. I dont have Ford Motor Co., or Chicos, or somebody else giving me a paycheck. So I wake up every morning unemployed, and figure out a way to create income. Anybody whos 100 percent commission, thats who we are.Ž Q Flipping voices>> Rick Shaffner, investor and partner with four others who now own more than 300 properties, mostly in Lee County: “Starting in 2009, I was buying houses and duplexes that sold at the height of the boom for $300,000, for $40,000. So I was buying (primarily in Lehigh Acres) at the top of the market for 15 to 20 cents on the dollar. “We’re from Detroit. My business partner managed 300 houses in Detroit, and those houses went for $500. You can’t give them away in Detroit. “So Lehigh still has a reputation, but my business partner says, ‘This is paradise. I haven’t had to wear a ak jacket, I don’t carry my gun to collect rent, and I don’t have to have two guys with me.’ “But even the lenders here still are scared silly of this, still. We got here and we were like, how can you go wrong? These are 1970’s prices, for God’s sake. You get 1,500 square feet for $45,000 and you put $15,000 or $20,000 into it? “Now, we’re buying properties for $50 to $55 a square foot, and our goal is to get to $75 a square foot. We think we can do that.”>> Rowen Samuel, the Samuel Team of John R. Wood Realtors, Naples: “We have de nitely seen an increase in ‘ ips,’ but the majority of these are single-family neighborhood based — locations where values have increased over the past several years, including Park Shore, Moorings, Co-quina Sands and Old Naples (areas west of U.S. 41 in Naples), as well as Royal Harbor. Flips tend to be investor situations where a home or lot previously sold for lot value (or less), is torn down and replaced by a brand new home, and is then marketed at a substantially higher price because it is ‘new’ and in a highly desirable location. We are also seeing a lot of remodels of existing homes (versus a tear down) that are being ipped. Yet another situation is where investors purchased at the bottom of the market, rented the homes for a year or two, and are now selling them for a healthy pro t.”>> Jim Green, Jim Green Realty, Lee County: “We see an increasing desire to invest, and a decreasing inventory, both in the ‘buy and sell’ market, and in the ‘buy, rent and hold’ market. In the portion of the market where investors operate, there has been a shift toward a sellers’ market. “For redevelopment and in ll, the so-called ippers are leading the way. “My advice to investors: Know the market and opportu-nities. Be prepared to make aggressive purchase offers instantaneously. Many land mines ex-ist in the purchase process — beware. Without adding value to a property, I see no opportuni-ties to buy and sell quickly (say six months) at a pro t. Consider offering ownernancing to buyers unable to receive bank loans — very few such properties are offered and there is a strong need.”>> Frank Ehrhardt, Cape Realty, Cape Coral: “Flipping has become extremely competitive so people who were sitting on the sidelines for the last year or two are facing bigger challenges. “People have to be decisive and ready to make an offer when they see an op-portunity. The days of buying a property for $50,000 or $60,000 are gone. Now it’s difcult to nd anything for under $100,000. “Looking ahead, you still can’t build a house for as cheaply as you can buy one, so until we reach that equi-librium, prices will continue to increase.”>> Tom Weekes, Realtor and partner with Gay Weekes, based in Charlotte County: “We’re still seeing this — ipping — a lot. A guy came to a sales meeting recently, and he said, ‘I’ve got $6 million, me and my friends. If you have a property that will rent for a certain amount, and it can be bought for a certain amount, we’ll buy it and rent it. “‘Or if you see something that won’t be such a good rental property but it needs to be rehabbed, we’ll talk about it.’ “What happens with foreclosures is they sit empty for a couple years. They’re pretty rotten. “Now, the real estate investment trust companies who would typically buy commercial real estate for investments have gone to buying residential property, which is good because every time a foreclosure hits the market and is sold as a foreclosure, it keeps driving down the appraisal values of homes.” Q SAMUEL SHAFFNER EHRHARDT WEEKES GREEN

Bronze.Healthy tans are now available right in the heart of West Palm Beach at Sun Spray Tanning & Boutique. Owners are eager to extend this healthy, skin-conscious tanning alternative to the community, they said in a prepared statement. They have teamed up with the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Association to host their grand opening on Wednesday, June 26, at the corner of South Dixie and Fern from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be gourmet hors doeuvres, cham-pagne, red-carpet society photographs and hourly giveaways, including a month-long membership to the salon. Its clear what overexposure to the sun and UV beds can do to your skin. Even though everyone looks good tan and feels more confident with a nice glow, theres nothing fun about skin cancer, sun damage or wrinkles,Ž says Julia Kenty, Sun Spray owner. Here, you can get a tan and take care of your skin. Your spray tan helps you keep your youthful appearance by not damaging or aging your skin. Youre actual-ly nurturing your skin when you spray tan.Ž Ms. Kenty says Sun Spray products contain natural, organic ingredients such as avocado oil, ginger, lemongrass, vitamin D and argan oil, which has gained popular-ity of late as a beauty miracle due to its restorative and age-defying effects. High in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, argan oil has been said to help dry skin, psoriasis, eczema and wrinkles. Our products are something we are proud to stand behind,Ž Ms. Kenty says. You feel good when you know you are selling something that is good for you.Ž Besides the feel-goodŽ ingredients, Sun Spray machines create a spa-like experi-ence. Sun Spray is the first salon in South Florida to offer the VersaPro, an open-air tanning booth designed to customize each tan with targeted-area applications, thereby only tanning your legs or tanning your legs a little darker. A heated tanning booth, the VersaPro dries your spray tan with every spray pass. Ten minutes in the spa-like booth lends a reprieve that Ms. Kenty calls the ultimate me time.Ž Sun Spray also offers tans by way of the Evolv, a hand-held heated spray. A certified technician assesses your skin tone, mixes up a solution to flatter your skin type, then sprays you by hand, careful to tan every curve and crevice. Technicians may embel-lish your face and shoulders with hints of red, giving your tan more of a sun-kissed look. For those wary of looking orange, Ms. Kenty assures spray-tanning product lines have come a long way. Product lines have advanced beyond orange tones,Ž she says. We are conscious of your natural skin tone and develop a solution to complement your skin type.Ž To anyone who many have any reservations against spray tans, Ms. Kenty reiter-ates, Sun Spray tans are healthy and luxuri-ous. You will love your tan, and in the long run, youre loving your skin,Ž she says. She would like to see Sun Spray become the go-toŽ salon for those looking to establish a regular tanning routine as well as those looking to tan for special occasions.

A12 WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGYour children make choices; accept them and move onIt was torture to sit through dinner with her friends. Eves head was pound-ing. If Marge Gordon mentioned one more time how difficult it was for her son to decide whether to accept admis-sion to Harvard, Duke or Princeton, she would scream. And, predictably, Trish took every opportunity she could to trumpet her sons latest promotion „ he was a rising star at a hedge fund, earning gazillions. She hated how the others nodded their heads knowingly. Their children were achievers also, so no one took offense at the one-upmanship of parental boasting. None of the group could possibly understand what it felt like for Eve to be in a room of obviously proud par-ents when she was so ashamed of her son Jasons shortcomings. Jason had been a problem for as long as she could remember. He had barely graduated high school, and had attended rehabs for alco-hol addiction more times than she liked to admit. Her friends had tried to be supportive and non-judgmental but Eve always got the sense they couldnt relate to her familys challenges. Although no one ever said a word, she couldnt help but feel that her friends had disapproved of choices shed made over the years with Jason. When our adult children disappoint us, we may blame ourselves and believe their failures reflect negatively on our character and parenting skills. We may carry the humiliating notion that our childrens flaws are on display for all to see, and that others are judging us harshly. We may find ourselves in that self-defeating web of magical thinking: If only I had done such and such, things would have turned out far differently.Ž Its important that we objectively consider why we are disappointed. Some-times, we are blessed to have children who are solid citizens who live their lives respectfully and demonstrate the utmost in integrity and personal quali-ties. We may just be disappointed they didnt choose the life path we always envisioned for them. Perhaps, they chose a career that didnt have the status or panache we had hoped for. But if they are living independently and honestly, and they are proud of the direction their life is going in, why is that not enough? And, further: What if they choose a life partner we object to? Perhaps of a different religion or ethnicity, social stra-ta, or sexual orientation? Its valuable to honestly appraise if theyre in relationships that are mutually respectful and gratifying and to gauge if they are genu-inely happy. Are THEY proud of their life choices? Then, to be fair, we need to look with-in ourselves to consider why we are so disap-pointed. Under-standably, we may have carried dreams for our childrens futures that have now been irrevocably dashed. We may believe our children are a reflec-tion of our parenting, and a measure of our worth as individuals. Were entitled to feel disappointed and to mourn what we hoped would have been. But then we must take steps to let go of the hurt. And, we must be careful not to burden our children with unfair reactions. When we have rigid expectations for our childrens futures, we may impose damaging burdens upon them. Some of us have a need „ whether or not it is conscious „ to have our children follow a predetermined course of behavior. How we perceive our children and our expec-tations of them may be overloaded by fears and biases that we carry from our own upbringing. If we take the time to consider the origin, we may gain further insights into the source of our discom-fort. We may discover that we are car-rying unfinished business from our past that colors our perspective and imposes unfair pressure on our children. Our children often have radars up and are acutely attuned to our wishes and dis-appointments. They may be influenced to go forward in the prescribed direction, or deliberately choose a different path. But lets consider how we react when our childrens behavior shows poor judg-ment or anti-social qualities. These char-acter traits may be deeply offensive to our moral code. Its not uncommon for parents to blame themselves for causing these flaws. This shame has the power to evoke dark insecurities in parents. But its important to remember there are many factors that may explain the etiology of troubling behavior. At some point, our grown children must take full responsi-bility for their actions, and we must give ourselves permission to let go of our embarrassment. We must remind ourselves that our children have minds of their own. We dont have the power „ or right „ to decide how our adult children will choose to live their lives. Yes, we can influence them, but, NO, its no longer in our control to determine the course they choose. When we hold our heads high, and let the world know we accept whats on our plates, we have taken important steps to maintain our pride. And, we are sending a valuable message to our chil-dren as well.„ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a Palm Beach Gardens psychotherapist.

Caron is known for pioneering addic tion treatment that is gender-specific and specialized for adolescents, young adults, families, as well as in instances of relapse. Hanley has forged new ground creating programs focused on baby boomers and senior citizens, the statement says. “I am excited to be at Hanley Center as they have always been respected in the treatment industry,” said Ms. Malo-ney. “Now, that they are associated with Caron, it is like coming home. I am looking forward to our expansion while providing the specific, individualized treatment that each patient and family deserve.” According to Mr. Rothermel, Ms. Maloney brings leadership, clinical experience and strategic planning skills built over 17 years in the addiction field. She has initiated innovative programming, pro vided quality oversight and has a track record in successful business develop ment. Ms. Maloney is credited as the inno-vator behind Caron Treatment Center’s renowned adolescent and young adult residential treatment programs. From 1995 to 2011, she held positions of increas-ing responsibility at Caron Treatment Centers’ main campus in Wernersville, Pa. Ms. Maloney also served in the United States Army Reserves from 1987 to 1996. Most recently, Ms. Maloney served as vice president of addiction services at Rushford Center in Meriden, Conn. There, she was responsible for overseeing all of the addiction operations for the organiza-tion, including detox, inpatient, halfway house and several outpatient centers. She has been widely interviewed in the media, with appearances on Oprah, A&E Inter-vention and ABC News.

Their confidence is eroded and their view of the world is brought into doubt. Beyond the psychological effects, there might be changes takenƒ a crimp in spending plans as some gains have been taken from the portfo-lio, a shift to more cash, etc. In all of the sorting that readers might do at this juncture, consider reviewing several themes that have been presented in this column recent-ly. Consider this Money and Investings Greatest Hits of the past two years. Perhaps, some of the advice that has appeared in these pages will prove relevant and hopefully, further discus-sions with your investment adviser. The first theme is to worry less abour your portfolios return and worry more the parts of your life that have the potential to consume large amounts of capital, expenditures far in excess of a portfolios common mis-step. Some of your most important financial assets exist outside of the portfolioŽ (Aug. 9, 2012) focused on the cost of failed relationships: end-ing failed marriages; helping children overcome alcohol, drug, gambling and other lifestyle issues; and reversing our own unhealthy lifestyles. Allocate time and resources toward these criti-cal relationships before they become a crisisƒ especially your own health, a treasured yet ofttimes forgotten asset. If you are unhealthy, how will you gar-ner physical and emotional strength needed to fix any problems beyond your health? Second, most investors do not have the time, skills or emotional disposi-tion to actively trade their portfolios, adjust their allocations or the like. The column of Feb. 7, A portfolio that stands strong despite the economic weather,Ž suggests that, if investors accept that the future is not knowable and that the imponderable does/even-tually happens, then they can focus on creating a portfolio that can handle all economic weathers or eventuali-ties. The concept of an all-weather portfolio was made popular by famed investment manager Ray Dalio, of Bridgewater Associates. Bridgewa-ters All Weather Fund has a premise: When investing over the long run, all you can have confidence in is that (1) holding assets should provide a return above cash, and (2) asset volatility will be largely driven by how economic conditions unfold relative to current expectations (as well as how these expectations change). Thats it. Any-thing else (asset class returns, cor-relations, or even precise volatilities) is an attempt to predict the future.Ž The All Weather Fund is allocated far beyond equities and bonds (even into asset classes perceived as much higher risk.) The composite of these diverse asset classes is expected to handle all weathers of deflation, stagflation, inflation, high growth, etc. Third, remember that the average retail investors confidence in equi-ty investing swings with the market. When the market is already up, the retail investor is feeling good about the markets prospects and is inclined to make new or additional investments at higher prices. When the market is down, the retail investor becomes fearful of the future and more market losses, and is inclined to take money off the table after the market has retrenched. The March 28 column, Chasing short skirts and investment hotties,Ž provides the following alarming sta-tistic: A study by the consulting firm DALBAR examined the effect of chas-ing returns between 1984 and 2003. Investors in stock mutual funds who frequently traded out of funds during that period earned an average annual return of 3.51 percent. In contrast, the market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, earned a 12.98 percent average annual return.Ž (Website BMO Retire-ment Services.) Fourth, if you are committed to diligent economic/market sleuthing, then keep one ear and eye dedicated to a China-watch, the powerhouse behind world growth. Investors shouldnt ignore the yin-yang of Chinas econ-omy,Ž dated April 4, suggests that China, though facing slower growth, could still fire the engines of personal consumptionƒ as it has an undevel-oped consumer market. (Never forget that the U.S. GDP expanded in the 1980s through 2007 mostly due to U.S. personal consumption and it remains the underwhelming vehicle behind our current meager 2 percent GDP.) Fifth, central bankers assume control, until they are not in control. In this newly fashioned world where central bankers rule, they seem to be willing to do anything and everything. Some central bankers should be con-cerned that all their efforts have not generated GDP growth sufficient to create meaningful employment. Fur-ther, there is less and less wiggle room and time to resolve other countries messes. Last weeks column, June 13, Japan cannot solve its many prob-lems,Ž was a case in point. Soon attention will shift back to Europe (upcoming German elections/the fate of Merkel); back to the U.S. (as the effects of sequestration deepen later this summer and will likely be fol-lowed by permanent budget cuts), and back to the UK (where pressure rises for its exodus from the EU), etc. Sixth, Business cycles are in control, not central bankers,Ž dated June 6, 2012, considers the possibility that the central bankers will not be able to pull the rabbit out of the proverbial hat time and time again, as economic cycles are ultimately in control, there are more years of deflation (economic winterŽ) on the horizon. The cycles of winter, spring, summer and fall can be lessened or accentuated by central banker policies ƒ but not stopped. Visit with your investment adviser and consider whether you have a port-folio that can weather the unpredict-able, the unpleasant and the volatile of this economy and the markets. Speak to a variety of advisers, especially those with expertise in specific asset classes. Then, chart your course.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 A16 BY EVAN WILLIAMS____________________ewilliams@” THE MILLIONAIRE BMO Private Bank director reflects on results of wealth survey NEXT DOORA bank that offers wealth management services to high net worth indi-viduals has released the results of an online survey of 482 millionaires around the country. The results paint a diverse picture of the rich across the United States and in South Florida, highlighting a grow-ing group of young people, women and immigrants who cre-ate their own wealth rather than inherit it. Todays wealthy „ defined as those with assets of $1 mil-lion or more „ are largely self-made,Ž building their bank accounts mostly on their own,Ž accord-ing to a news release from BMO Private Bank, which com-missioned the sur-vey. Our study has confirmed that the American Dream is alive and well,Ž BMO Private Bank President Terry Jenkins says in the release. It shows that prosperity and achievement are within the reach of all Americans who have the determination to succeed.Ž BMO Private Bank has locations throughout the country and is expand-ing in Collier County, and Sarasota and West Palm Beach. Pollara, a business that offers corporate research for other companies, conducted the BMO Changing Face of WealthŽ survey March 28-April 11. The survey, which has a plus or minus 4.5 percent margin of error, takes into account people with $1 mil-lion or more in investible assets (money beyond possessions like a car, boat or house). It highlighted the importance of education in attaining wealth, with 54 per-cent of the respondents reporting they had earned a graduate or professional degree. Thirty-four percent said they had an undergraduate degree, while 8 percent held a high school diploma or less and 5 percent had technical or trade school certification. Nearly a quarter of those surveyed were younger than 40 years old. Generally, our studys findings correlate with our client demographics,Ž says Michael J. Dyer, managing direc-tor of BMO Private Bank in West Palm Beach. Its no secret that education is a key to success. Its just interest-ing that this survey confirmed that Floridas most wealthy residents have had the benefit of graduate and profes-sional degrees and have had the deter-mination and commitment to create their own successful destinies.Ž Most participants „ 67 percent „ said in the survey said they primar-ilyŽ generated their own wealth. That answer could be broadly interpreted, said Scott Hansen, BMOs managing director in Naples. For instance, it could mean they came from poor beginnings to become wealthy. It could also mean they worked hard to grow a business they inherited or earned a higher education degree not always accessible to some-one of lesser means as a springboard to building that wealth. Sixteen percent of the respondents in the survey said their wealth was partly inherited and partly self made.Ž Only 3 percent of respondents said their money came from an inheritance and less than a percent from a divorce. Since the study focused on people with as little as a million dollars in investible assets, it includes many pro-fessionals such as doctors or lawyers, as well as successful entrepreneurs. That may have indicated being rich 30 or 40 years ago, especially for younger people, Mr. Dyer said. A mil-lion dollars doesnt go as far as it used to. Its indicative that youre doing well, but dependent upon your age, it may not represent wealth,Ž Mr. Dyer said, noting that a smaller group of million-aires who have reached roughly $20 million in investible assets or more include even fewer people in profes-sional services and more entrepre-neurs. The results of the survey also point to immigrants as a major generator of wealth. While 67 percent of those surveyed were born in the U.S., as were their parents, nearly a third were born out-side the U.S. or are first-generation Americans, with at least one parent born outside the country. A hefty 80 percent of this latter group said their wealth was self made.Ž Women make up roughly a third of the nations wealthy, the survey suggests. Half generated their own wealth, while almost a third said their wealth came mostly from a spouse. Typical of the people surveyed for BMO, Steve Watts is relatively young at 54, mostly generated his own wealth, was born in the United States and has at least a bachelors degree (in his case, one in economics from Gordon College in Wenham, Mass.). Mr. Watts, one of BMOs customers, moved his family to South Florida in 2001. It was lifestyle and other considerations when we first moved here,Ž he says. Its actually worked out better than I expected all the way around for me personally and professionally, and for my children.Ž Mr. Watts developed technologyrelated businesses, including a chain of wireless phone stores he sold in 2011, and more recently started a home building company, Naples-based Avant-Garde Homes. The diversity among millionaires and their record of creating businesses shows strength in our economy,Ž Mr. Hansen says. It shows in a small way that manufacturing is coming back in the U.S. and that what we strive to do in our country still works.Ž Q DYER HANSEN Member FDICEQUAL HOUSINGLENDER RYour Home Town Bank TRUSTCOBANKJuno Beach Branch 14051 US Highway One, Juno Beach, FL 33408 (561) 630-4521www.trustcobank.comFast, Local Decisions Close your First Mortgage in 30 days!*Schedule Closing Date at Application 85% of our Loans close as scheduled!*Low Closing Costs No Points and No Tax Escrow requiredTrustco Mortgages We Close Loans!*Information based on current closings.

There is a good deal less tolerance in the system for charities that may be well intended but not well run. Foun-dations took early notice that suc-cessful grants depended on whether or not organizations had the oper-ational capacity to deliver on the promises they made. Funders were predisposed to hedge their bets by helping to broker and finance a net-work of associations and manage-ment assistance organizations that shared as first priority building the capacity of the sector. Their value-added was strengthening the admin-istration and operations of thousands of charities nationwide through leadership development, education, management training, and technical assistance services. These resources helped nonprofits to improve their governance, management, and admin-istration of programs and services. As the process gained momentum to tighten-up the sectors organiza-tional nuts-and-bolts, interest grew in also advancing greater profes-sionalism among those the sector employed. Post-secondary schools established and credentialed non-profit management as an academic discipline. They branded the legiti-macy of professional careers within the sector and advanced the cause of more cost-efficient, better-managed organizations. Philanthropy stepped up and increased its investment in capacity-building to deepen the knowledge, skills, and know-how of the rising tide of nonprofit profes-sionals. The sum effect of all this investment is that we now expect, with greater exactitude, that charities operate more like for-profit business-es. Allowances are made to accom-modate the distinction that charities are not businesses in the traditional sense; but would-be contributors still want the ability to make a bottom line assessment symbolic of net prof-its over expenses that is measurable in charities through other means. A shorthand app found favor for this purpose and is widely accepted by donors. The formula presumes a summary judgment as to the quality and efficiency with which an organi-zation delivers the charitable goods. All one need do is review the per-centage of dollars used by the organi-zation to fund administration versus programs. The smaller the percent-age of funding allocated to adminis-trative expenses, the more favorable the ranking received by charities for overall efficiency and quality. To be sure, the justification to constrain and minimize the cost of oper-ations versus programs had merit. The demand to fix the ratio of admin to program expenses grew out of the outrage leveled at charities that deliberately bloated and padded their expenses to line their operations with fur. Disreputable fundraising prac-tices added fuel to the fire and added to the backlash against the costs associated with running an office and a professional operation more generally. The light billŽ became the all-inclusive metaphor for gen-eral support-like expenses that few donors wanted to pay. Such expenses became habitually suspect in any budget and cost/benefit assessment by donors. Funders had their thumb on the scale, too and also favored the programmatic side of the weight-in. The consequence was an erosion of dollars invested in organizational development and infrastructure. In effect, programmatic budgets were subsidized by underpricing the actual cost of keeping the institutional ship afloat; and the practice within the sector encouraged the prevalence of low pay, absence of health, retirement and leave benefits, and the uncer-tain job security experienced by the majority of the sectors workforce. Lean, mean, and efficientŽ in the charitable world began as self-polic-ing with noble intentions. It has come home to roost in the Great Reces-sion as a self-induced, downward cycle of financial starvation among nonprofits themselves. To satisfy the expectation for operational austerity, charities have perhaps unwittingly encouraged the mistaken impression that not-for-profit means they can do it for free. By minimizing operational expenses, nonprofits created unreal-istic expectations among donors and funders that they could conquer the mountain while building the road to clamber up it one brick at a time. Some foundations and donors have overcome their reluctance and now provide charities a more proportion-ate and ample flooring of general sup-port funding. A report just published by The Nonprofit Finance Fund on the health of the sector highlights three main takeaways for the fund-ing community: Change costs money; nonprofits need financial reserves; and it is time for charities, donors and funders to talk about their mutu-al interests in responding to commu-nities in crisis. That may be a scary ride but who can doubt the time for a little more bravery has come?

Chairs that defy traditional stylesSome old chairs have very strange added parts that can confuse todays col-lectors. A Windsor chair from the 18th century might be made with an added piece at the end of the arm because it is a writing armŽ Windsor. There can be a drawer beneath the seat of a Shaker sewing chair. Many types of chairs were made into rocking chairs with the addi-tion of pieces of curved wood or a bouncy platform with springs. A chair with paddle-like arms and a rectangular wooden piece attached to the back at an angle is known as a cockfighting chair.Ž It was thought the user sat facing the back of the chair to see the fight, but now it is believed that the wooden piece was meant to hold a book and that the chair is a reading chairŽ once used in libraries. A similar chair was made by the Roycroft Colony in East Aurora, N.Y., in about 1905. It had a narrow ledge at the top of the chair back. The user sat facing the back and straddling the chair, with arms leaning on the leather-covered wooden ledge. It is a meditation chair. There is a modern group at the Roycroft Colony today that is interested in art and meditation. Q: My 1910 telephone is in excellent shape. A label on it reads, Property of the American Bell Telephone Co.Ž What is the phone worth? A: By 1910, telephones were being manufactured as both wall phones and upright candlestickŽ phones „ and you dont tell us what yours looks like. Some antique phones sell for under $100 and some for thousands. American Bell Telephone Co. was formed in 1880 and acquired a controlling interest in Western Electric Co. in 1881. Western Electric then became the manufacturer of American Bell Telephone Co. phones. In 1899, American Bell was acquired by American Telephone & Telegraph Co., which had been an American Bell sub-sidiary. Telephones the age of yours sell for about $100 to $200, depending on style and condition. Q: I have some Olin Russum Pottery and would like to know something about it. Is it collectible? A: Olin Lansing Russum Jr. (19181998), known as Russ,Ž was a potter and sculptor who lived and worked in Maryland. In 1951 he and his wife, Jean, built a studio in a converted barn near Gunpowder Falls. Russ made dishes, sculptures and watercolors, but is best known for his tile and bas-relief murals. His murals are in several buildings in the Balti-more area, and some of his work is in museum collections. He also taught a ceramics workshop at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Jean was a woodworker who made sculptures and furniture. They worked together on some projects until her death in 1986. Their work has been sold in several recent auctions and can be found in shops. Q: My pottery stein holds a half-liter. Its in the shape of a child wearing a monks hooded habit. Hes holding a couple of radishes or turnips in his left hand and what appears to be a book in his right. His head, the steins lid, has a pewter rim. Down the front of the childs clothing theres a long bib with the words Gruss aus Munchen.Ž The only mark on the bottom is 1880.Ž What is the stein worth? A: You have a Munich ChildŽ character stein. The bibŽ down his front is a scapular, a traditional part of a monks garb, and the German phrase on the front can be translated roughly as Regards from Munich.Ž The design is based on the German citys coat of arms. Munich Child mugs, which can be in the traditional stein shape or figural, like yours, were first made in the last half of the 19th century. A mug like yours sold in 2011 for $334. Q: I still have the portable Brother typewriter my father bought for me 40 years ago. I have kept it stored in its original carrying case and it still works. I wonder what its worth. A: With few exceptions, only very early typewriters „ those made and marketed in the late 1800s „ sell for much money. Brother Industries, a Japanese corporation that dates back to 1908, still is in business today manufacturing print-ers, fax machines and other office and industrial equipment. Portable electric typewriters like yours dont excite col-lectors, but you might be able to sell it online for up to $20. Tip: When looking up a pewter mark, dont just check pewter books. Try look-ing at a list of American silversmiths and silver-plate makers. Many of these people worked with all three types of metal.

Q Jupiter Police Department officers were responding to a crash when they discovered a Cadillac engulfed in flames. All three people inside were unable to escape due to their injuries. Thanks to the efforts of Good Samaritan Bill Baehler, along with Officers Chad Smith and Telly Tyson they were able to rescue all three individuals. Both officers had to break windows on the burning vehicle. Q Vehicles going into canals continue to be an ongoing problem in our county. An elderly couple, Murray and Iris Abrams, were on the way home from a doctors appointment when they were hit from behind and suddenly were upside down in a canal. Murray, almost 91 and Iris, at 82, were running out of oxygen. Iris start-ed gulping canal water. Thanks to Good Samaritans, and Captain Robert Eastberg with PBC Fire Rescue, the Abramses were successfully rescued.

Floridabased captains have ties to ‘Man of Steel’ THE OCEAN WAS SO ROUGH THAT SOME MEMBERS of the film crew were puking over the side of the boat as the vessel creaked and rocked pre-cariously, 30-foot-high waves flooding the deck. And Capt. Lance Julian was happy, because thats what the script „ and the director „ had called for. The scene occurs fairly early in the 143-minute Man of Steel,Ž the newest Superman movie, which opened June 14. Spoiler Alert: Clark Kent, who has not yet grown into the superhero we know as Super-man, is wandering around the country, drift-ing from job to job. In the above scene, hes working on a crabbing boat. Theyre trapped in a bad storm, and the ships crew is scurrying about. Then the captain receives a distress call: A nearby oil rig is in trouble. And suddenly, Clark Kent is at the rig, bare-chested and walking through fire to rescue the men trapped inside. Capt. Lance Julian and his son, Capt. Harry Julian, founded Marine Team International, which moved to Naples from Hawaii in 2009. Im a marine consultant until we get there, and then I become a marine coordinator, coordinating the water scene,Ž Capt.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis Single fathers: a more perfect partnerWith Fathers Day just behind us, I have men with children on my mind. I seem to be sitting in the middle of a baby storm, a ferocious procreating thats been raging for several years now. I just had my 33rd birthday (God help me), so I think its a function of the age. Most of my friends are already on their second babies. And no matter what I may think of their husbands „ fallible men, all „ as soon as you stick an infant in their arms my stony heart melts. Without reason and without fail, these fathers become the most attractive men on the planet. But why? They are average suburban males. They drive domestic SUVs and wear polo shirts to work; on the week-ends they drink microbrews and grill hunks of meat. There is nothing surpris-ing about them. And yet: If they werent already married to my best friends, Id swoop in on them in a hot minute. Dont get me wrong, I know the appeal is driven by biology. Theres a complicated system of hormonal signals pumping through my brain, as intoxicat-ing and trouble-making as grain alcohol. My attraction is irrational but inescap-able. And as it turns out, Im not alone. According to a study out of the Univer-sity of Richmond and cited in the Brit-ish newspaper The Daily Mail, single fathers are 30 percent more likely to find a new long-term partner than men without children. My single girlfriends say they would be thrilled to date a single dad and, personally speak-ing, Ive never known a man to be so love-ly as when hes doctoring a scraped knee or cradling a fussy tod-dler. Per-haps thats because such moments are so rare. Child rearing is by nature mother-cen-tric; women are the bestowers of kisses and soothing caress-es. We have learned to hand out sweetness indiscriminately. Male love is gruffer, more restrained. But to see a man with a child is to know that he is capa-ble of great tenderness. Which is maybe why single fathers dont stay single long. Memoirist and television writer Tracy McMillan wrote a brilliant piece several years ago titled Why Youre Not Married.Ž Aimed at the sort of women who are forever per-plexed at their single status, the article points out some hard truths. A good wife,Ž Ms. McMillan says, even a halfway decent one, does not spend most of her day thinking about herself. She has too much s**t to do, especially after having kids.Ž Once children come into a persons life, Ms. McMillan argues, there is no room for selfishness. This is why you see a lot of celebrity women getting husbands after they adopt ƒ After a year or two of thinking about someone other than herself, suddenly Brad Pitt or Harrison Ford comes along and decides to significantly other her.Ž The same can be said for men. Nothing strips a man to his most unselfish core like children. And noth-ing makes a man more appealing than a generous, giving heart. It should be no surprise, then, that women are drawn to single fathers. Give us a man with a baby any day. Q Weekday Dinner Specials cannot be combined with any other offer.

A28 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYJulian says of his role in the production of a movie. His job involves location scouting, finding the right equipment and crew. And then, he says, When they get into a shoot-ing period, Ill be standing out there with the director and the first AD and the other team members „ the camera, lighting, sound and special-effects people „ making sure that our part of the actual filmmaking takes place correctly.Ž His son prefers to stay at home in Naples with his family. But the two, he says, are equal partners, and when hes on location he stays in constant contact with him via the Internet, bouncing ideas off of him. For the Man of SteelŽ scenes, the Julians were working with a budget of just under $3 million. Capt. Julian found a vessel in Seattle and had it cleaned up in Vancouver. While there, he and his crew did all-day rehearsals. When they wanted to shoot our part in the water,Ž he says, we had to go around ƒ on the outside of Vancouver Island, so we could get severe weather.Ž There was a water safety backup boat, out of sight of the cameras, he says. And the 30-foot seas had some of the filming crew a little ill,Ž he confesses. Its his job to have the right piece of equipment, the right boat, the right ship crew, the right technical crew. With a big fancy film, its a situation where you have to be efficient, you have to be safe, and you have to get the shot.Ž One morning he says, We did a weather call. We felt it was too bad to be out there.Ž So the production company shot other scenes that day, on land. You have to use your judgment to ensure people are still safe,Ž he says. Then you have the equipment and the manpower to shoot the next day.Ž Though the on-board shots took four days, they were the result of months of careful planning and negotiations. Capt. Julian not only knows his oceans, but he also knows a bit about movie-making magic, too. The director wanted a lot of water on the deck,Ž he says. To do that, they had to weigh the boat down, so it rode lower in the water. The waves also had some man-made assistance, with additional water being pumped onto the deck. It made it look a lot wetter on deck than she wouldve normally been; thats what the director wanted to happen.ŽAll in the familyThe elder Capt. Julian is a fourth-generation mariner. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all sea captains in New Zealand, his native country. I guess its like you dont have an option,Ž he says. When I look at my son Harry; he followed on in the same footsteps. Now I have a grandson called Lance. That poor little fellow (though hes just 4 years old) doesnt have an option.Ž Capt. Julian and his wife, Sharon, were running a tug and barge company in Hawaii in the 1980s when he pitched to Waterworld for the towing, diving and salvage work.Ž He won the job, and though critics skewered the movie, it opened a new world of oppor-tunity for Capt. Julian. Over the years, Maritime Team International has worked on films including Titanic,Ž 007 Quantum of Solace,Ž Fools Gold,Ž City of Angels,Ž The Thin Red Line,Ž Hangover Part II,Ž Armistad,Ž The Thomas Crown AffairŽ and U-571.Ž Titanic,Ž he says, is one of the cruelest stories on the water that theres ever been, with so many people lost.Ž It hit him emotionally, he says, having a family history of being at sea. And here I am stand-ing on the deck of the Titanic, when were tilting and sinking the vessel. The bands playing. You realize youre going home tonight or tomorrow morning, but so many people didnt in the real world. You get quite emo-tional about that.ŽTraveling the worldThe company has also worked on nine seasons of the TV reality show Survivor.Ž We put together all the water scenes. Were there to make sure the filming crew can all move around correctly. We support the medical team, executive producer Mark Burnett, the lighting crew, so they can be filming the actual contestants. I can assure you, Im quite happy not to be a contender,Ž on the TV show, he says. I learned after the first season that I was on the right side of the camera.Ž Capt. Julian has traveled the world, scouting locations and working with film crews on oceans, rivers and seas. Are there any waters he hasnt traveled?Id like to go to either the Antarctic or the Arctic „ I wouldnt mind which one,Ž he says. I would love to go on a shoot (to one or the other.) I havent done ice scenes, and Id love to be around an iceberg.Ž But he loves his adopted home of Naples, where the Julians own and oper-ate a boat rental business called Pure Naples. They provide vessels for sightsee-ing, dolphin watching and sunset cruises, and for deep sea, calm bay, back bay and sunset fishing trips. Hes especially proud of his new jetboat, ODIN, which hes used as a camera boat on shoots. Sharon Julian, who works on the administrative end of things, goes on every shoot with him. The couple are always happy to call it a wrap and come home to Naples, the captain says. Now theyre packing for another trip.Because he signs confidentiality agreements, all he can say is that hes going to Hong Kong and Malaysia to shoot an as-yet-untitled Michael Mann movie. Weve been very fortunate,Ž he says. We sometimes pinch ourselves when were up in the plane, flying to our next location: My, how fortunate are we?Ž Q SUPERMENFrom page A25 Capt.

NoIt was cause for excitement when it was announced Christopher Nolan (The Dark KnightŽ trilogy) would be involved in the development of the Superman reboot Man of Steel.Ž Con-versely, it was cause for dread when Zack Snyder came on as the direc-tor, specifically because Snyder, though masterful with action sequences (300,Ž WatchmenŽ), often struggles to tell a cohesive story. Unfortunately, Snyder still hasnt figured it out. Though Nolan retained a producer credit and his Dark KnightŽ scribe David S. Goyer wrote Man of Steel,Ž Snyders film is a loud, relentless assault on the eyes and ears. Aspiring to only slam-bang action when themes of morality, compassion and love are in play but not developed is an injustice to both the storys comic book origins and the moviegoer who deserves more. Although the costumes, production design and visual effects are strong, the picture has far too much surplus for its own good. What could have been essential character development with a young Clark Kent (Cooper Tymber-line (age 9) and Dylan Sprayberry (age 13)) and his parents (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane) plays like an ill-fitted, forced excuse for action set in Kansas. Daily PlanetŽ editor Perry White (Lau-rence Fishburne) serves no function, and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) is nothing more than an unnecessary accessory. Theyre here because theyre supposed to be here, not because they need to be here, and theres a huge difference between the two. Worse, these extra characters bloat the movie to 143 minutes. The core story is Clark/Superman (Henry Cavill), after being sent to earth by his father (Russell Crowe) prior to the destruction of their home planet of Krypton, discovering that surviving Kryptonian General Zod (Michael Shannon) is planning to wipe out mankind and restart Krypton. Clark, having lived with humans for 33 years and believing in their capacity for good, must stop Zod. To his credit, Snyder apparently used every cent of the $225 million budget, as the action scenes are fast and effective. Highlights include saving Lois from a fall (of course), a knock down, drag-out fight with Zod and Faora-Ul (Antje Traue) in a small town, and the conclu-sion, which almost completely destroys Metropolis. If youre hoping this will pay respectful homage to prior SupermanŽ movies, think again. This is a total reboot, and although youll see signs for Small-villeŽ and note that a truck has a Lex-CorpŽ logo, dont expect much else taken directly from the Christopher Reeve movies or Bryan Singers 2006 misfire, Superman Returns.Ž Also, John Williams memorable score has been replaced by Hans Zimmers overbearing orchestrations, and for those who care, Im told the story strays pretty far from its comic book origins. And no, theres no kneel before ZodŽ either. Man of SteelŽ didnt have to include these ele-ments, but its overall ineffectiveness leads us to think of what it couldve done to be better. One more thing: Dont stay for the end credits. Though its long been speculated that Man of SteelŽ is Warner Bros. and DC Comics first step toward a Jus-tice LeagueŽ movie (which would include Batman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman), a la Marvels The Avengers,Ž there is no indication of it here.

PUZZLE ANSWERS FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 20-26, 2013 A31 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarMax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia — dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 1351 S. Killian Drive location in Lake Park. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the con-sumer and so we set up a website.” A car buyer can log on to automax and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “ It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges con-sumers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250. “I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you don’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

The Chinese-style hot and sour soup included with lunch with packed with nice, meaty slices of tofu in a savory broth.

Q „ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE When you hear the word lazy, you may think of indolence and sluggish-ness, but for Brian and Jennifer Wilson, the word lazyŽ is synonymous for deli-cious food. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, owners of the Lazy Loggerhead Cafe, met at the Culi-nary Institute of America, where they both shared a passion for food and family. While Mr. Wilson was born and raised in South Florida, Mrs. Wilson is originally from Bridgehampton, N.Y., but she says she always visited South Florida on winter vacations with her family. It was a funny coincidence that we met at cooking school and he was from Juno Beach,Ž says Mrs. Wilson. I always considered Florida as my second home, so it made sense for us to be here together and ultimately start our lives here.Ž Growing up on a farm, Mrs. Wilson says that her passion for the culinary industry sparked at a very young age. Though the recipes she started with were simple, she says that her fascina-tion grew deeper with each thing she made. I remember cooking with my mom all the time and I can even remember one of the first things I made,Ž she says. I was maybe 7 or 8 years old and I used to put brown sugar on grapefruit, and then broil it in the oven. I thought it was so cool that the sugar turned crispy and crunchy ... It was just like magic to me.Ž After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, the couple experienced two different areas of the industry. While Mrs. Wilson explored catering sales, Mr. Wilson opened the Lazy Loggerhead Cafe with a partner. However, Mrs. Wilson did not stay away from the Lazy Loggerhead for long, and she soon entered the partnership with her husband. Celebrating its 15-year anniversary in September, the Lazy Loggerhead is not only geared toward locals, but also has a strong following from out-of-town visi-tors. With the beach in the restaurants backyard, customers are welcome to dine in and indulge in anything from eggs Benedict, ginger French toast, to the Portobello salad, or they may order take-out and enjoy a day in the sand. We work really hard to make delicious foods that look beautiful, and we have fun,Ž she says. Ultimately, were driving up and down the beach to come to work, you really cant beat that.Ž Name: Jennifer Wilson Age: 42 Original hometown: Bridgehampton, N.Y. Restaurant: Lazy Loggerhead Cafe, 400 State Road A1A, Carlin Park, Jupi-ter; open 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily; 747-1134 Mission: What we enjoy doing is having fun while cooking fresh, ripe and beautiful food with local ingredients that have flavors and tastes that we love. We tend to cook the way that we like to eat.Ž Cuisine: American fare serving breakfast and lunch Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Brian and I both wear clogs „ we love them! When youre standing up for 12 to 15 hours a day, our feet are so comfortable in clogs.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Truffled French fries! I usually get them at The Breakers, but my hus-band also makes them for me at home, and his are even better!Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef or restaurateur? Well, I dont think there is anything more eye opening than per-sonal experience. I believe its impor-tant to let someone mentor you and experience what they do because I think a lot of people think this industry is glamorous, and its not. It has its glam-orous moments, but it is hard work. I think that if you like cooking and you like what you do, then youre going to have a more gratifying experience.Ž Q In the kitchen with...Jennifer Wilson, Lazy Loggerhead Cafe BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus PGA Commons hosts summer dining specialsSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Jennifer Wilson owns the Lazy Loggerhead Cafe at Carlin Park in Jupiter with her husband, Brian Wilson.
