The paper racked up 27 journal-ism awards at the 2013 Southeastern Press Convention in Orlando. Florida Weekly also earned two awards at the Society of Profes-sional Journal-isms Sunshine State Awards in Miami, includ-ing a first place award for Nancy Stetsons arts reporting, beating out the Orlando Sentinel and The News-Press. In addition to the top FPA award for weekly news-papers with circulation above 15,000, Florida Weekly writers, designers and editors won 14 first place, 10 second place and three third place awards. The team of Roger Williams and Osval-do Padilla won the prestigious Clau-dia Ross Memorial Award for Investiga-tive Reporting.

But that is set to change Aug. 26 as the 56,000-squarefoot Mandel Jewish Community Center opens to wel-come a public that stretches far beyond religious and ethnic borders. We want them to come here and feel that this is the place called home for families, for children, for adults, for everybody to feel like this is a place to just come,Ž said Michelle Wasch Lobovits, executive director of the Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches, the agency that oversees the Ross JCC in Boynton Beach and will oversee the Mandel JCC. The Mandel JCC also will be home to the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy once the school is con-structed on the north side of the 16-acre campus, on Hood Road just east of Floridas Turnpike in Palm Beach Gardens. I think in some ways its a dream come true given the fact that this was only a concept a year and a half ago,Ž Gary Krieger, chair of the JCC Advisory Committee, and a Palm Beach Gardens resident, said by phone. It has progressed rapidly.Ms. Wasch Lobovits points out a gallery here, a passageway there as she leads a construction tour of the project.

COMMENTARYRoad map: Finding the real politic on a country afternoonTommy Lee Cooks Kingdom of Conservative Values bisects my Land of Liberal Lessons way down at the cross-roads of American Political Expressions, which perfectly defines the breathtak-ing artistry in his novel Buckingham restaurant, The Hut. Its an American Political Expression if there ever was one, at least as I define it. Three hundred and sixty degrees of vibrant new murals depict the Ever-glades in one of the biggest dining rooms, painted from photos Mr. Cook took in wild places. Archival images of proud and smiling Miccosukee Indians grace the walls of another room „ those come from Mr. Cooks friend, Woody Hanson, whose grandfather, W. Stanley Hanson, took the rare pictures many decades ago, before air conditioning, before mosquito control, before casinos, and before most Yankees. So pick an afternoon and forget, for a minute, all the political chatter for a bit. Travel out to Buckingham and sample the real politic: fried green tomatoes grown next door, or free-range pecan chicken or shrimp Diane or blackened grouper or roast pork or a back-strap filet with sandy grits and blackberry cobbler. From I-75, travel east on State Road 80 to the corner of Buckingham Road. Turn south and drive past Orange River Boulevard to the restaurant. If you go too far, you can pull into Mr. Cooks other venture, the World Famous Buckingham Blues Bar and Grill, from which he and his blues band let fly from time to time. Mr. Cook was born and raised, more or less, way down in the southern mountains of Virginia, after his adop-tion at one month of age. He introduc-es this shooting star of a biographical fact while casually suggesting that all women have a choice, but hes glad the woman who was his mother made the right one „ hence, he can offer both a personal and a political observation while touting the vibrant cuisine. This is why I like Mr. Cook „ because he takes everything personally, includ-ing politics, just like I do. All politics is local, we all know that. But did you know that it is also full-flavored, with hints of nectarine and a brilliant pale golden color laced with crisp, citrus aromas and floral notes „ a Maso CanaliŽ pinot grigio, perhaps? Or its the aromas of sweet red cherries, orange peel and cinnamon imbued with the sensory liquidity of strawberry and nutmeg (a Casa VivaŽ pinot noir, lets say)? My politics, of course, are a little more pedestrian, leaning too often to an ice-cold can of PBR or a bottomless glass of sweet tea, but theyre just as personal. Like Mr. Cook, I take the meaning of the word politics in its Greek sense, meaning anything related to the polis: to the center of society, the pole, the anchor in our shared lives. For him, that means Fresh-and-Florida without the sell-out comfort of franchis-ing and pre-packed distribution. Thats why back in the kitchen of the new Hut there are no freezers. Every dish delivered to table or bar „ to the more formal or less formal dining areas both inside and outside „ is fresh. Some of it is also local, food grown 100 yards down the road. Of course, if you want a conversation about contemporary politics, Mr. Cook will give you that, too, without hesita-tion. When you go in, just ask him: Hes the late-50s dude with the pickle-barrel chest over narrow hips, his hair pulled back tightly into a jaunty little ponytail, his navy shirt with tiny stars tucked into his clean denim, his needle-nosed cowboy boots a dancers dream seem-ingly designed for a Saturday night soi-ree, especially on feet that skip forward when he walks in light prancing steps, like those of a man about to jump over the moon and come up smiling. Which is what he just did, by investing (with a co-partner) about $2 million and a years worth of hard work in a top-to-bottom redesign of the old place. For him, Fresh-and-Florida meant not only creating a menu of foods that fit such a characterization, but delivering a living museum of spacious dining rooms adorned with bracelets of long windows and mural art that takes diners or drinkers straight into the southern Everglades. There are sprawling decks outside, overlooking verdant grounds imbued with pools, ponds, fountains and live oaks, all of it designed for parties and weddings as well as casual, real-politic afternoons. The native flora and fauna seem to extend to the images inside, where bro-meliads bloom in spiky red tongues of color from the trunks of cypress trees, otters fish and frolic, and looky there „ a couple of guys fish from an airboat near a swamp cottage outside of which lie, in the shade of the those bald ancient trees, several cob-sealed jugs of shine. Just how accurate is this depiction of Mr. Cooks own camp, sequestered so deep in the Glades that when he and Woody Hansen sunk his airboat a few years ago, they had to walk more than 20 miles along a night-shrouded levy to get out? Id say spot on. Thats the real politic for you. Q „ A version of this column originally ran on Sept. 5, 2012. g f c 8 T B roger A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe national conversation amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Lets take the advice of the attorney general of the United States. Lets have a national conversation about race in the wake of the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. Lets make it a painfully honest conversation „ except about all the things that are painful for us to admit. Lets take a tragedy and make it a racial crime. Lets not acknowledge the evidence suggesting that Trayvon Mar-tin was beating George Zimmerman. Lets never, ever admit that if Martin hadnt hit Zimmerman, he would almost certainly be alive today. Lets act as if the main threat to young black men in America is over-zealous neighborhood-watch volunteers who erroneously consider them suspi-cious, call the police and follow them, then shoot them in self-defense after a violent altercation in confusing circum-stances that will never be entirely dis-entangled. Lets pretend that this hap-pens all the time. Lets send down the memory hole reports of burglaries and attempted break-ins in Zimmermans community that, according to a Reuters report, had created an atmosphere of growing fear in the neighborhood.Ž Lets ignore that Zimmerman is from a mixed-race household. Lets forget that he initially didnt mention Martins race on his 911 call and said he looks blackŽ only when prompted by the oper-ator. Lets disregard testimony about his good character, lest it get in the way of the national dialogue about how hes a racist murderer who got away with it. Lets say the trial was about race in America or about whether black men can walk home from the store or any other insipid, racially charged nonsense to fill the air or the column inches. The national conversation cannot afford to get mired down in legal niceties like what constitutes lawful self-defense, let alone reasonable doubt. Lets call people we disagree with racists. Dissenting voices must be swift-ly condemned and, ideally, silenced. Lets not talk about the 90 percent of black murder victims killed by other blacks. For national conversation pur-poses, not all killings are equal. Lets blast New York Citys stop-andfrisk policy as the worst kind of racial inequity. Lets not bother to note that New York City once had 2,200 murders a year and now has 400, nor that many of the thousands of lives saved are those of black men. Lets focus on the impor-tant thing „ condemning the policy that contributes to saving those lives as heinously racist. Lets listen to the attorney general inveigh against stand your groundŽ laws and make believe that he knows what the hell hes talking about. Lets ignore that the stand your groundŽ law wasnt the reason the Sanford, Fla., police initially didnt arrest Zimmer-man, and that it really had nothing to do with the trial. In short, lets take a terrible event and make it a festival for all our ideological and racial ax-grinding and a showcase for our inability or unwillingness to reason clearly. Lets do it in perpetu-ally high dudgeon while simultaneously patting ourselves on the back about our fearlessness and honesty. Yes, Mr. Attorney General, you are right. This is exactly the conversation that the country needs. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The NSA’s spying on the prizeAs the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington approaches, com-memorating that historic gathering where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous I Have a DreamŽ speech, it is important to recall the extent to which King was targeted by the governments domes-tic spying apparatus. The FBI operation against King is one of the most shame-ful episodes in the long history of our governments persecution of dissenters. Fifty years later, Edward Snowden, who has just received permission to reside in Russia (at least for a year), took enor-mous personal risk to expose the global reach of surveillance programs overseen by President Barack Obama. His revelations continue to provoke worldwide condemnation of the U.S. In a heavily redacted, classified FBI memo dated Jan. 4, 1956 „ just a little over a month after Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger „ the Mobile, Ala., FBI office stated that an agent had been assigned by (redacted) to find out all he could about Reverend MARTIN L. KING, colored minister in Montgomery and leader in the bus boycott ... to uncover all the derogatory information he could about KING.Ž The FBI at that time was run by its founding director, J. Edgar Hoover, who was deploying the vast resources he controlled against any and all perceived critics of the United States. The far-reaching clandestine surveillance, infil-tration and disruption operation Hoover ran was dubbed COINTELPRO,Ž for counterintelligence program. The FBIs COINTELPRO activities, along with illegal operations by agencies like the CIA, were thoroughly investigated in 1975 by the Church Committee, chaired by the Democratic U.S. senator from Idaho, Frank Church. The Church Committee reported that the FBI con-ducted a sophisticated vigilante opera-tion aimed squarely at preventing the exercise of First Amendment rights of speech and association.Ž Among COIN-TELPROs perverse activities was an FBI effort to threaten Martin Luther King Jr. with exposure of an alleged extramarital affair, including the sugges-tion, made by the FBI to King, that he avoid embarrassment by killing himself. Following the Church Committee, Congress imposed serious limitations on the FBI and other agencies, restrict-ing domestic spying. Among the changes was the passage into law of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). FISA compelled the FBI and others in the government to go to a secret court, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, in order to engage in domestic wiretapping. Then came Sept. 11, and the swift passage of the Patriot Act, granting broad, new powers of surveillance to intelligence agencies, including the FBI. Section 215 of that act is widely criti-cized, first for allowing the FBI to obtain records of what books people are sign-ing out of the library. But now, more than 10 years later, and thanks to the revelations that have come from the Snowden leaks, we see that the gov-ernment has used this law to perform dragnet surveillance on all electronic communications, including telephone metadata,Ž which can be analyzed to reveal intimate details of our lives, legal-izing a truly Orwellian system of total surveillance. In what is considered to be a litmus test of the potential to roll back the Obama administrations domestic spy programs, a bipartisan coalition of lib-ertarian Republicans and progressive Democrats put forth an amendment to the latest defense authorization bill. Justin Amash, a Republican, and John Conyers, a Democrat, both of Michigan, co-sponsored the amendment, which would deny funding to the NSA to col-lect phone and data records of people who are not subjects of an investigation. The White House took seriously the potential that its power to spy might get trimmed by Congress. On the eve of the debate on the Amash/Conyers amend-ment, House members were lobbied by NSA Director Gen. Keith B. Alexander, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, as well as by hawkish members of the Congressional intelligence com-mittees. The amendment was narr owly defeated. A full bill that would similarly shut down the NSA program is currently in committee. Thanks to Edward Snowden, and the journalists who are writing stories based on his whistle-blowing, we now know that the Obama administration is collecting oceans of our data. Martin Luther King Jr. was a dissident, an orga-nizer, a critic of U.S. wars abroad and poverty and racism at home. He was spied on, and his work was disrupted by the federal government. The golden anniversary of the March on Washington is Aug. 28. Deeply con-cerned about the crackdown on dissent happening under Obama, scholar Cornel West, professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York, wondered if Brother Martin (King) would not be invited to the very march in his name.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.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickKittens can be so cute „ they make us gasp in delight, and every shelter and rescue group has plenty to choose from at this time of year „ colors, coat lengths and markings galore. But how do you know youre picking a healthy baby?General impressions are important. You should get a sense of good health and vitality from the kitten youre consider-ing adopting. The baby should feel good in your arms: neither too thin nor too fat, well put-together, sleek and solid. If his ribs are showing or if hes potbellied, the kitten may be suffering from malnutrition or worms. Both are fixable, but signs of neglect may indicate deeper problems with socialization or general health.With soothing words and gentle caresses, go over each kitten youre con-sidering from nose to tail, paying special attention to the following areas: Q Fur and skin. Skin should be clean and unbroken, covered thickly with a glossy coat of hair. Part the hairs and look for signs of fleas: The parasites themselves may be too small and fast for you to spot, but their droppings remain behind. You shouldnt count a cat out because of a few fleas, but a severe infestation could mean an anemic kitten, which could be a prob-lem if youre not ready to care for a sick youngster right off the bat. Q Ears. Ears should be clean inside or, perhaps, have a little bit of wax only. Filthy ears and head-shaking are signs of ear mites, which can require a pro-longed period of consistent medication to eradicate. Again, its fixable, but you need to be willing to work at it. Q Eyes. Eyes should look clear and bright. Runny eyes or other discharge may be a sign of illness. The third eye-lid, a semitransparent protective sheath that folds away into the corners of the eyes nearest the nose (also called a hawŽ), should not be visible. Q Nose. As with eyes, there should be no discharge. The nose should be clean and slightly moist. A kitten who has difficulty breathing or is coughing or sneezing may be seriously ill.Q Mouth. Gums should be rosy pink, not pale, and with no signs of inflamma-tion at the base of the teeth. The teeth should be white and clear of tartar buildup.Q Tail area. Clean and dry. Dampness or the presence of fecal matter may suggest illness.Of course, even a healthy kitten will need your veterinarians help to stay that way. Schedule a new-kitten exam and pre-ventive-care consultation as soon as you get your new family member adopted.Remember that health is only part of the picture when it comes to raising a kit-ten. Always keep in mind the cat you want your kitten to be, and create a socialization checklist that gives you homework for shap-ing your kittens personality and perspective on life one day and one baby step at a time.Look for every opportunity to shape your kitten into a relaxed, confident, friendly, affectionate and well-behaved member of your family. Hand-feed your kitten before and in between meals. When your kitten is already relaxed, use special treats to introduce new experi-ences such as gentle handling, wearing collars, harnesses or getting one nail trimmed. Think of teeny-tiny baby steps and of creating a positive first impres-sion. Provide your kittens favorite treats and finger-scratch your kitten in favorite places to help offset small amounts of stress. Help your kitten recover and relax by going sl owly, without using any force.Finally, ask your veterinarian for tips on how to raise a kitten who tolerates „ and preferably likes „ going in for wellness care. Too many pet owners say they dont provide this essential care for their cats because their pets hate the carrier, the car and the veterinary exam room. It doesnt have to be that way, so lay a solid founda-tion now for a lifetime of good care. Q Kittens comes in all colors and patterns, long hair and short.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYInside, a swooping soffit helps guide the eye and the visitor through the space into a vast living room that overlooks the aquatic center and the site of the Jewish academy beyond. When the site is done, its going to look like one gorgeous continuous campus,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. It is the stuff of dreams.You walk through and see how grand the space is and how useful it will be to the community and it brings joy to my heart,Ž said Mr. Krieg-er, who had toured the site a few days before. Inside, a caf will offer smoothies, baked goods and other pre-made treats. The caf will be for those who are just running through here and need some-thing before or after a class,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. There will be a snack bar near the pool. Outside will be a little more serious. Hot dogs, hamburg-ers,Ž said Jerry Rap-paport, construction manager of the site. The meat will be kosher, of course. That will feed the stomach. For the rest of the body, the 2,500-square-foot little gymŽ will offer gymnastics for kids and functional fit-nessŽ for adults. Functional fitness means youre not going to see and hear a whole bunch of Nautilus equipment. Whats going to be in here are balls, bands, weights and well-ness people who we have now contracted or hired to create a program for holistic wellness „ mind, body and spirit,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. So the wellness program is not only about pumping iron. Its about yoga and meditation. Its more on the nature of cross-fit and that kind of thing, and its not so much about pumping iron or getting on a machine and rowing.Ž The smaller gym is painted a soothing blue color called Light Rain.Ž The floors in the group fitness training room and the gym are covered in padded wood-grain sports flooring to give a slight bounce. Thats easier on joints.In the 12,000-square-foot gym, which has basketball hoops, that sports flooring mimics the rebound of wood. There are bleachers for basketball games, and the space is large enough for indoor soccer games and multiple sports activities. In addition, this is the place where were going to have huge community fairs, the health fair, the art fair, the grand open-ing will take place in here,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. She said she hoped the material would be durable. Ive taken a piece of the material and laid it out in the parking lot for everybody to drive over and its wiped up just like the commercials,Ž said Mr. Rappaport. Other floors are covered in an elaborately pat-terned terrazzo. The gym can accommodate 1,500-2,200 people. This is the glue that binds us,Ž she said of the space. Community is part of the JCCs name, and planners have addressed the com-munitys needs by adding such touches as a prep kitchen for catered events, eight preschool classrooms that open onto a courtyard and an indoor playground. Our playgrounds are not just swings and monkey bars. The philosophy of our playgrounds is called Reggio Emilia. What it means its sort of a like a Montes-sori concept. Children learn through the exploration of their spaces. We have a lot of spaces for them to learn,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. There will be sandboxes and water features created by a company called Nature Explorer. What weve done outside with the Nature Explorer, is kind of like we had when we were growing up where you didnt have these things you could go out and buy. Weve got blocks of wood they can build with. Weve got water features that they can play with and create their own kind of dimension. Touchy-feely kind of things that are more educational than play, but the kid doesnt know the differ-ence; to them, its all play,Ž Mr. Rappaport said. Kids can learn to cook in a teaching kitchen, and representatives from the Culinary Institute of America will be on hand to offer lessons in cooking. There also will be vegetable gardens so kids can learn about where their food comes from.Finding supportThe Mandel JCC takes its name from The Jack and Joseph and Morton Man-del Foundation, which donated $5 million to build the $20 million project. Morton Mandel also named the West Palm Beach Public Library, and the family foundation has been a major supporter of the JCC near Cleveland. But others have stepped up to the plate as well. In March, the JCC announced that Doris Rothman Browning would donate $1 mil-lion to name the 16-acre campus aquat-ic center after her father, philanthropist George Rothman. And in May, Beryl and Robert Schneider of Palm Beach Gardens announced a $2 million gift; the gym will be named in their honor. He asked me two questions. Is the project going up? And is the money in escrow,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said of Mr. Schneider. The Schneiders happened upon the project by accident after seeing displays for the JCC during the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival at Downtown at the Gardens. We were going to a movie, they were sitting having the film festival. Michelle still cant get over that. Thats going to be a story she says shell always tell,Ž Mrs. Schneider said. Very often the sponsor will call the donor. Its very unusual for the donor to call,Ž Mr. Schneider said. Im being hon-est with you. Nobody would ever call us for that kind of donation.Ž The couple, who met in New York at age 11, are unassuming. He served as a partner in an accounting firm, and she worked at an advertising agency on Park Avenue before working with a nonprofit. They married and later moved to South Carolina, where he established an office for the company in South Carolina. He founded Schneider Management, which operated, developed and managed hotels in South Carolina. In 1982, he founded American Properties Management, which managed apartment complexes. He still works three days a month in South Caro-lina. The couple, who have two children and one granddaughter, lived in Hollywood for 21 years before moving to Palm Beach Gardens nine years ago. But they came to Florida on a quest for a Jewish community. That community was minuscule in South Carolina. One of the hotels that I had, the rabbi used to have Friday night dinner. We used to let him use the kitchen for cooking, and sometimes during the holidays, they would have holiday dinners at the hotel because they didnt have any cooking facilities,Ž Mr. Schneider said of life in South Carolina. I made a bar mitzvah there, and I had to bring everything from New York. Thats how un-Jewish everything was. They didnt know what a bar mitzvah was, and people of a different faith at the bar mitzvah couldnt believe you could drink in the synagogue,Ž Mrs. Schneider said. Jewish life continues to grow in northern Palm Beach County. They point to the various chabads that have sprung up and the thriving synagogues of Palm Beach Gardens. Palm Beach Countys Jewish population has been estimated at about 265,000, or about 20 percent of the countys 1.36 mil-lion residents. Its changing a lot, and thats why I thought this would help,Ž Mrs. Schneider said. The Schneiders will serve as co-chairs MANDELFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSWorkers paint the ceiling of the Mandel JCC’s front entrance in anticipation of its opening.

Mr. Schneider helped negotiate the purchase of furnishings and other fittings for the JCC, including that very sturdy gym flooring. Weve been very lucky. We started out with nothing and nobody helped us,Ž Mrs. Schneider said. So you have to pay it forward.ŽBringing the community togetherNorthern and central Palm Beach County have been without a full-fledged Jewish community center since the 100,000-square-foot Kaplan branch on Military Trail in West Palm Beach closed in 2008. Studies showed that Jewish fami-lies were moving north. The former Kaplan JCC space now is home to billionaire Bill Kochs Oxbridge Academy. The Meyer Jewish Academy still has its campus on the site, but is expected to open immediately north of the JCC in time to begin the 2014-2015 school year. The JCCs temporary quarters in Midtown have about 5,400 square feet, and offer a range of activities for youngsters and adults. The activity in that small space at Midtown clearly has amazed Ms. Wasch Lobo-vits, who has worked for the JCC since 1990. One recent weekday morning, toddlers and parents created a happy din while singing folk songs. A stream of visitors moves through the office. Bridge classes for adults are later in the day. For the JCC staff, it shows the potential for the new campus. We put together a very thoughtful business model to be able to use this space to its maximum,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said during the construction tour. Organizers already are seeing results.Weve got 102 kids are signed up for preschool, which means that 102 kids parents are going to be coming to cam-pus every day, theyre all going to walk through here,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said, gesturing to the great hall of the new cam-pus. We have a bridge program at Mid-town that has at the height of the season over 250 people coming to play bridge, so were going to have so many more things that we can offer them.Ž Bridge is what brought Mr. Rappaport on board. I originally joined the J here at Midtown to join Sam Brams bridge classes. Sam and I kind of hit it off because we both were in construction,Ž he said. Mr. Brams introduced Mr. Rappaport to Paul Gross, president of the JCC. Paul and I talked a bit and he asked me to send down my rsum and I did, and then he asked me to go to a design meeting two weeks later. Thats how I got involved, and its been a wild ride since.Ž Mr. Rappaport has worked on mammoth projects, serving as owners rep for a national distribution center for Saks Fifth Avenue in Maryland, the Revlon headquarters in New Jersey and he over-saw additions to the Saks store on Worth Avenue, as well as initial phases of con-struction on the Saks store in Boca Raton. Jerry is a volunteer owners rep. You think about volunteers like little ladies who are half-paying attention. This is the most amazing feat,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. She hopes that volunteer spirit is infectious. Its for the children of the future,Ž Mr. Schneider said. After all, the center is a celebration of Jewish culture. You can come in here and the only thing Jewish you might want to do here is nothing. You might be coming here to play basketball, and thats great. You may not be Jewish and you might be coming here to play basketball, and thats great,Ž she said. But the mezuzahs will be on every door, every holiday youll know its here. Youll know youre coming to a Jew-ish space.Ž Its a notion that goes beyond religion and beyond ethnic identity. The kind of community were trying to build is for kind, caring people who want to come together and hang out and have a good time,Ž Ms. Wasch Lobovits said. No rules, no judgment, no anything about how to be Jewish or whether youre Jewish.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVING3D technology provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for dental implant surgeryIn the past, placing dental implants involved a lot of guesswork. Dentists used to rely on traditional blackand-white X-rays, which displayed only two-dimensional images, inac-curate in size and detail. The dentist could not see the bone, soft tissues or surrounding vital structures beneath the gums, so he would have to approximate the location of surgical implant placement. X-rays are fine for finding decay in teeth, but for dental implant surgery, 3D CT scans are now considered the standard of careŽ in modern dentistry. A CT scan is a volumetric image of your teeth, jaws, and surrounding vital structures. It shows, in high resolution and unparalleled detail, structures not visible with traditional X-rays. 3D CT scans provide both three-dimensional and cross-section views that are much more accurate than traditional two-dimensional X-rays. These 3D computerized images provide detailed views of the facial structures that enable a qualified dentist to determine the quantity and quality of bone as well as bone density where the implants will be placed. Vital structures such as nerves and sinuses are precisely located to add a great mea-sure of safety not offered with traditional X-rays. With a 3D CT scan, the doctor can properly assess your specific case to deter-mine if youre eligible for dental implants, whether bone grafting is necessary and plan precisely where to place the implants With this information, the dentist can determine the prop-er treatment approach for each individual patient, including the correct implant type, size and position for optimal implant placement. These scans make implant placement more efficient and predictable while dramatical-ly reducing the time a patient spends in the dental chair. Cone beam CT technology emits very small amounts of radiation for the CT scan. In fact, the imaging requires less radia-tion than a traditional X-ray and the cone beam technology emits 80 to 100 times less radiation than a traditional medical grade CT scan of the same area.You are seated in an open area unlike an MRI scan-and the CT scanner moves around your head. The scan will take place in the dentists office and takes only 19 seconds.„ Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care designated Good Samaritan Medical Center as a Chest Pain Clinic. The SCPC is an international non-profit organization that focuses on transform-ing cardiovascular care by assisting facilities in their effort to create com-munities of excellence, according to a prepared statement from the hospital. Hospitals that have received SCPC accreditation are capable of rapidly diagnosing and treating heart attacks. They emphasize the importance of standard-ized diagnostic and treatment programs that provide more efficient and effective evaluation as well as more appropriate and rapid treatment of patients with chest pain and other heart attack symp-toms. They also serve as a point of entry into the healthcare system to evaluate and treat other medical problems, and they help to promote a healthier life-style in an attempt to reduce the risk factors for heart attack. Our team at the Cardiac and Vascular Institute engaged in rigorous evalu-ation by SCPC for its ability to assess, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack,Ž said Mark Nosacka, chief executive officer, in the statement. This accreditation reinforc-es our commitment to raising the stan-dards of cardiac care in the community.Ž To the community served by Good Samaritan Medical Center, this means that processes are in place that meet strict criteria aimed at: € Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment. € Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved. € Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital. Good Samaritan Medical Centers cardiac and vascular services encom-passes the entire continuum of care for the heart patient and includes such focal points as dispatch, Emergency Medical System, emergency depart-ment, cath lab, quality assurance plan and a community outreach program. By becoming an Accredited Chest Pain Center, Good Samaritan Medical Cen-ter has demonstrated its commitment to higher standards, according to the statement.

Max Planck Florida Institute scientist awarded $2.4 million NIH grant SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDr. Ryohei Yasuda of the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience has been awarded a $2.4 million research grant over five years by the National institute of Mental Health at the Nation-al Institutes for Health, the Jupiter insti-tute said in a press statement. Dr. Yasuda is a scientific director at the institute and leads the Neuronal Sig-nal Translation research group focusing on the biochemical reactions that occur around neuronal signaling. His group looks at behaviors of proteins involved in synaptic plasticity within dendritic spines „ small bristles on the surface of neurons that receive synaptic signals. Synaptic plasticity is the ability of the connection, or syn-apse, between two neurons to change in strength in response to either use or disuse of transmission over synaptic pathways. In dendritic spines, a number of proteins play roles in triggering the chain of biochemical reactions necessary for changing the strength of the synaptic connections. In a prepared statement from Max Planck, Dr. Yasuda describes the work in simple terms, We are trying to under-stand the basic mechanism of memory formation.Ž In the NIH grant, he said, the focus is on a protein molecule, Ras, important for memory formation. Abnormal Ras signaling has been implicated in a lot of diseases and conditions, including men-tal retardation and Alzheimers. There are a lot of reasons to believe the molecule is important,Ž said Dr. Yasuda. And understanding the mecha-nism of how it works should provide us insights into new therapeutics for these diseases.Ž An enabling key to the research, he said, are the advancements in imaging technologies. Some of those advances, including the technology to visualize and record biochemical reactions dur-ing actual memory formation, were developed by Yasuda and his group. Before that technology, we didnt have any idea about how the molecule was activated, the timing of the activa-tion or where the molecule was acti-vated. Now we can monitor the location and timing of biochemical reactions.Ž For more information about the research being done by Dr. Yasudas team, see Q Don’t make assumptions, or hurtful comments, about non-parentsI know you mean well, Beth, but please dont tell me how I should discipline my children. Its just I dont think you could possibly understand. I mean, if you havent had children of your own, well, you wouldnt know what it feels like when I have to send Jeffrey to his room for misbehaving. When he cries and begs me to give him another chance, I feel so awful. I know you tell me not to give in, but, its not nearly so simple as you imply.Ž Then, adding insult to injury, Sherry turned to the other women at the table (all of them mothers, of course), and said: Dont you girls agree?Ž They shook their heads in agreement, nodding knowingly to each other. And, wouldnt you know it? Jocelyn piped in and giggled: Beth, youre so lucky! What I wouldnt give to be able to sleep in on Sunday mornings. I havent had a full nights sleep since before the twins were born.Ž Beth was sure Jocelyn didnt think Beth was lucky at all. She knew that Jocelyn wouldnt trade places with Beth in a heartbeat. Beth hated the way her friends patronized her at times, feigning envy for her supposed freedom.ŽIt hurt that these women, who had known her for a lifetime, were so insensitive and never filtered their comments when they spoke. She was still reeling from the sting of Jocelyns remark last year „ that non-parents were missing out on lifes greatest joy. They had to know that Beth had worked hard to push through some difficult disappointments, and had finally reached a place of selfsatisfaction with her current life situation.The decision whether to have a child is understandably quite personal, and in many instances, quite complicated. The responsibility is enormous, and every aspect of ones life is forever changed. Most people who assume this responsi-bility do so with great anticipation. They welcome these changes and look forward to an exciting new chapter in their lives.Understandably, the birth of a child can be an awesome, life-altering experience. New parents may be so overcome by the magnitude of their feelings they may not consider that their behavior could become overbearing or offensive to others.They must remember that theirs is not the only reality; nor is it the only meaningful direction for one to take. There are countless individuals who have CHOSEN not to have children. They may have decided that their lives are purposeful and full; having a child is not the direction they wish to follow. For many, there are complex factors that must be seriously considered before committing to parenthood. If their marriages are not secure, their finances shaky, or there are emotional or health issues, or an unstable family legacy, one or both members of the cou-ple might understandably have reserva-tions or fears. Potential complications, such as these, can become so stressful that the decision is far from clear-cut. There are some who carry the excruciating pain of desperately wanting to become a parent but whose lifes cir-cumstances have prevented this possi-bility. There may be highly personal rea-sons „ infertility, medical restrictions, traumatic family or social histories „ or not having found a compatible life part-ner. Its not uncommon for a sensitive individual to be concerned that bringing a child into his life would be unwise. These individuals may not volunteer their very personal business to others. They may not voice their upset, espe-cially if they are grieving or angry that life has not been kind to them. Some people make wrongful assumptions about childless couples. They may harbor prejudices, and judge others life choices with little knowledge of whats truly going on. Their attitudes may imply that non-parents are self-absorbed and will ultimately have a less rewarding existence. Sometimes, even benign or well-intentioned words may be misperceived, triggering resentment or hurt. The non-parents may now be on the defensive, feeling pressured to act unconcerned or to justify their very personal choices. The internet is replete with blogs that chronicle rivalries between those who have children, and those who dont. There is always the risk that each side may become quite self-righteous and accusatory. On occasion, these conver-sations become quite heated. Some of those who have not had children resent the child-friendly policies in the workplace and indignantly report they have been discriminated against by policies that favor parents. They may resent the expectations that they cover for working parents, or when accom-modations offered to families are not offered to them in a comparable way. For many people, the above topics trigger a sore nerve. As we all know, were not always privy to what goes on in another persons life. We should hold back from making assumptions. Ulti-mately, knowing our audience when we speak and showing sensitivity can spare a lot of hurt feelings.

I heard they are better than my tooth. Answer: Dental implants are a great tooth-replacement device. Of all the tooth-replacement options, these dental prosthesis best mimic a natural tooth and stimulate the jawbone to maintain its density and volume. The key word here is replacement — not substitution. Root form implants have been in the development since the early 1980s. Teeth have been in development for billions of years. There are no substitutes for natural teeth but your natural teeth. If you have a tooth that is broken down and cannot be saved, the best replacement is a dental-implant-supported crown. If you had periodontal disease and you are trying to get the last bit of life out of those teeth, at the expense of losing your jawbone, then at this point, you would be advised to extract those teeth, preserve the remaining bone, and place implant-supported restorations. The dental implant would make better use of the remaining bone and help preserve it rather than destroy it. So, if you have teeth that can be viable with some dental intervention, keep them. If the teeth that are compromised are more of a negative than a positive, your dental-treat-ment dollars will be better used on replacing these teeth with dental-implant restorations.

Reversing facial aging often involves repositioning or restoring volume to key areas of the face. While facial fillers are a good option for some cases, they cannot compare to the results of a facelift. Patients I see who have had a facelift, even years ago, have an unparalleled rejuvenation of the lower face. A strong jaw-line, tight neck and high cheeks, provide a subtle but powerful portrayal of youth. Facelift surgery has evolved significantly over the last 100 years. The greatest advance was to address deeper and stronger connec-tive tissues separately from the overlying skin. In contrast, less invasive variations with a shorter scar have been marketed heavily in recent years. This is an excellent option in cer-tain patients, but in patients with a significant amount of loose skin, a traditional facelift will have better results. Consultations are meant to ensure that a facelift is the right procedure for you. The planned incisions, risks of surgery and post-operative course are reviewed. The surgery itself takes a few hours and a 24 hour dress-ing is used to protect the face. Sutures are removed the following week. Most patients are able to return to normal activity between 10-14 days when most bruising and swell-ing have resolved.

Komen South Florida will distribute more than $797,000 in grants to provide breast cancer screening, treat-ment and education. More than two-thirds of the money will be awarded to non-profit healthcare providers to fund breast cancer treatment and breast cancer screening, like mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women, the Komen affiliate said in a press release. The remainder will be awarded to nonprofits providing breast health edu-cation and patient navigation assistance to women diagnosed with breast cancer. The affiliate received 38 percent less in donations compared to last fiscal year, the statement said, so fewer peo-ple will be helped. The national organi-zations affiliates have reported varying losses following a controversy involving Planned Parenthood. We received 22 applications from nonprofits seeking $2.5 million to serve residents in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties,Ž said Dayve Gabbard, executive director of Komen South Florida, in the statement. But because we were only able to grant out a portion of those requested funds, many local women and men will not get the life-saving support they desperately need.Ž Every four years, Komen South Florida collaborates with local healthcare professionals and community leaders to develop a community profile to ensure that the distribution of funds is closely aligned with local needs. Continued economic challenges leave women and men in greater need of breast health services in our ser-vice area,Ž said Lisa Hartstein, director of mission initiatives at Komen South Florida. The less we are able to grant each year, the greater the burden on local grantees who simply dont have the money they need.Ž Ms. Gabbard said, What makes us unique is that, while 25 percent of the funds raised here go to the national Komen Grants Program for ground-breaking research, the other 75 percent stays in our local community to provide patient care and breast health educa-tion. Supporting Komen South Florida saves lives, and its never too late to donate, volunteer, or organize a fund-raising event.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 A20 In the just-completed July 2013 ratings period, WPBF 25 maintained its momentum as the No. 2 station for both news and sign-on to sign-off in the West Palm Beach-Ft. Pierce televi-sion market and continued to close the gap with competitor WPTV. WPBF 25 earned the No. 1 position for its noon newscast and five hours of entertainment programming, the sta-tion said in a prepared statement. WPBF 25 News Mornings (Mon.-Fri. 4:30-7 a.m.) topped competitor WPEC by 25 percent. Morning news viewers stayed with WPBF 25 as Good Morn-ing America (7-9 a.m.) nearly tripled CBS This Mornings HH rating. During weekend mornings, WPBF 25 News also ranked No. 2 overall. WPBF 25 News at Noon became the No. 1 newscast, beating WPTV and WPEC. Both WPBF 25 News at 5 p.m. and WPBF 25 News at 6 p.m. (Mon.-Fri.) held their No. 2 HH rank, with a 15 percent advantage at 5-6 p.m. and 33 percent lead at 6 p.m. over WPEC. WPBF 25 News at 11 p.m. was also a solid No. 2 with a 29 percent advan-tage over WPEC. WPBF 25 was the only station in the market to grow its 11 p.m. number, posting an 11 percent year-to-year increase. WPBF 25 embraces our leadership role throughout all the communi-ties we serve,Ž said WPBF 25 Presi-dent and General Manager Caroline Taplett, in the statement. Our live, local, late-breaking news and weather coverage conveys a sense of urgency and real-time reporting that is reso-nating with our audience.

Q WPBF maintains momentum for ratings climb SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ Diversify and shop around for your advisors Many financial advisors feel that it is necessary to have only one finan-cial adviser. Yes, this works for many investors and generally works best for the financial advisor. Any competent financial advisors goal is to get a good client and to keep him/her in such a way that the adviser gets as many fees as possible. A banker does not say to you, Dont give us all your CD money; spread it around with several other banks.Ž Bankers say, We want to be your banker and service all your needs.Ž ( ƒ. And get all your money). As long as you are within FDIC insurance lim-its, that concentration might not be such a bad idea. Insured money within the FDIC limits is risk-free and all you are doing is comparing rates and maturities and a few other features. The more conservative an investor you are, the more limited your choices and the more probable that counsel from one or two sources will be suf-ficient. But not so with financial advisors. They are not offering insuredŽ prod-ucts „ at least not solely „ and they frequently are pre-disposed and economically motivated to get you to take interest in their particular products or services. Of course, there are duties to you but their perspective of what is best for you are tainted by what they can sell to you. This is the nature of the beast. It is not intended to be disparaging to the profession; it is just realistic to recognize these facts and their inherent limitations. Besides being at least somewhat partial to their product offerings or investment advice, advisors can also have another limitation: how can one person be an expert in the enormously wide arena of financial products and services? What is out there is truly mind-boggling. There are thousands of stocks and thousands of mutual funds and gazillions of insurance quotes. Even if you are a financial expert, the array of choices is dizzying. And again, the advisors are pre-disposed to limit what they can represent effectively. How do you choose whose plan and/or which products are right for you? And what else might you con-sider besides that? Well, in a world of specialization, it is best to find a specialist who focuses on a narrower base of products versus a shotgun approach where one advi-sor purports to provide all things to all people. It would not be normal to expect an insurance agent to special-ize in equities, but it could be that his or her broker dealer has such exper-tise. If you get a referral to a stock picker at a brokerage firm, it might not be best to have the same person choose your mutual funds. If someone wants to do everything for you, you need to be sure that he or she has the background to really give good coun-sel in everything „ different from being able to sell everything. There is value in visiting with various financial advisors and finding out what they think they do best and how well you think they do it. There is no harm in ignorance. There is harm in not asking questions and admitting that you simply do not understand something. Perhaps the number one objective is to find someone to whom you can talk openly and as an equal „ not being shuffled through their maze of pamphlets and data, which cannot be absorbed in a single sitting. Yes, to interview a variety of advisors would be time consuming. But lets compare it to the time spent look-ing for a car. I seem to find that people will spend far, far more time searching car lots for the best car and price than they will spend visiting with various investment professionals. An average car may cost $25,000 to $50,000 and wears out in time, yet the portfolios and asset bases owned by the person behind the wheel are often many mul-tiples of the cost of the car and actu-ally far more important in the end. First, start with professionals you already know and trust, such as your banker, life insurance agent and/or lawyer. Second, get other referrals. You can always check their creden-tials. And you can start sl owly with them and if they do well, you can do more over time. Never do anything if you are uncomfortable. If you have three advisors, you have a good chance of getting a good perspective on your performance and your choices. A few other ideas: Try to keep things simple. Many little things force lots of little accountings and little decisions. It is better to see the forest than all the little trees. Assume the worst for high-risk investments and assume poor per-formance for low-risk investments and see if you can live with it; if you cant, then dont do it. Understand that high risk means exactly that. People used to think high risk meant high volatil-ity but surely they could make their money back. Not so. If you want to do high-risk investing, then you must be able to afford to lose it all; for most, the potential, incremental gains are not worth the risk.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 BUSINESS A21Its sea turtle nesting time and the first of the hatchlings are starting to emerge. Loggerhead Marinelife Center already has received its first batch, with up to 2,000 expected to follow. Under ordinary circumstances, the baby sea turtles hatch then head for the ocean. But many do not for a variety of reasons, including disorientation, entanglement, predation injuries and weakness. And thats where the Marinelife Center can help. The hatchlings frequently get spotted by Marinelife Center biologists doing their daily beach surveys or by local beach walkers, who bring them to the center, where they are examined. If the hatchlings are strong, or are leatherbacks, they may be released from the beach the next morning; weak, injured or debilitated hatchlings remain in the hospital for treatment. Once they are strong enough to swim, they live in an outside tank at the center until they can be released into the weed line, or sargassum, 5 to 15 nautical miles from the shore. That will be their home for the next several years. Here are some dos and donts for helping sea turtles:Do’sQ Throw away foreign objects and debris left behind on the beach Q Fill in holes in the sand that may obstruct a sea turtles path to and from the ocean Q Observe a nesting sea turtle from a distance from behind Q Look out for disoriented hatchlings on trails and roads near the beach Q Turn off outside lighting near the beach or install sea turtle-friendly light-ing Q Bring weak or confused hatchlings to the Marinelife Center, at 14200 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach Don’tsQ Dont interact with or disrupt a nesting sea turtle Q Dont use lighting on the beach at night, including flash photography Q Dont touch hatchlings on their way to the ocean Q Dont take any action for empty eggshells, or exposed, un-hatched eggs Q Dont harm or harass sea turtles, their nests or hatchlings Q Dont use shovels to dig on the beach during nesting season Remember: It is illegal to harm or harass sea turtles, their nests or hatch-lings. For more information, visit www. or call 627-8280. Q Be on the lookout for sea turtle hatchlingsCollaborative fundraising can be like a marriageIf you have written a proposal for funding, you know it is not an easy sell, no matter how wonderful are the programs you seek to support. For starters, grant writing is a highly competitive process, made more so by the proprietary label-ing given the intelligence gathered by an organization about its prospect list and funding strategies to support specific programs. Development staff members hold funding cards close to the chest as if they were state secrets; and the direc-tors of most charitable organizations do no typically share with other nonprofit leadership their assessment of funding opportunities nor their knowledge of the funders themselves. So expecting to find examples of collaborative fundrais-ing in the charitable sector is like the search for a white buffalo amongst the thundering herd, a likelihood made rare by its exception. That is too bad. By comparison, funders have little hesitation to share with colleagues what they know about their grantees and organizations that apply for grants. When there is competition among grant makers, it is sometimes over the issue of turf or who deserves the most credit. Those exorcised over these issues do not get to the finish line. That is too bad, too. However, funders do have incentives to stay the course. Participa-tion creates a shared body of knowledge about charities accessible to the funding community. This insiderŽ asset advanc-es a practice of more informed grant making among individual grant makers; and creates a broader understanding of the charitable ecosystem within which grant makers function independently and together. Nonprofits sharing information about funders also gain advantages. Collab-orative fundraising leverages new and increased sources of dollars to accom-plish things that organizations cant achieve alone. This is not an exercise in creating a paper alliance. Collaborative fundraising efforts fail that sew every organizational want into a single pro-posal, a patchwork of mismatched ideas with edges clipped off to fit. Collaborative fundraising is a genuine reflection: If we combine our collec-tive strengths to overcome the limita-tions of individual organizations, can we improve our own results and also accomplish a bigger, more audacious goal? This conversation isnt only about funding. Savvy grant makers know it takes more than money to be an effective agent of change. Most nonprofits would agree. It is the more than moneyŽ part of the conversation that needs tilling if nonprofits are to leverage the benefits of collaborative fundraising. Grant mak-ers are predisposed to explore such proposals because they have more than money to give. A recent article by Max Rose, a program associate at MDC, describes how to think about the more than the moneyŽ question. MDC is a nonprofit in Durham, N.C., that helps people and their communities overcome the barriers to educational and economic opportunity.Ž Rose draws lessons learned from MDCs Passing Gear Philanthropy programs to help grant makers be smarter and more effective in using all their forms of capi-tal „ social, reputational, moral, intel-lectual and financial „ to advance their charitable causes. The focus of Roses article is rural philanthropy, but its takeaways are not limited to that universe. He writes ƒphilanthropy can take stands, create coalitions, and break down racial barriers that other institu-tions avoid. Philanthropy plays the role of professor, listener, pulse reader, dream interpreter, and community orga-nizer.Ž One example given describes how the Black Belt Community Founda-tion in Alabama employs its financial capital as a resource to convene unlikely allies; its reputation as social capital to build relationships; and its leadership as moral capital to support community-wide racial equity. Like the grant makers of Roses article, nonprofits that share a geographic service area or address similar needs in a community, are well-positioned to partner and pursue together long term change. A collaboration that leverages and exerts all the forms of capital it rep-resents is compelling because it creates opportunities that add up to more than the sum of its parts. Few grants makers can resist a higher prize inclusive of long-term change, made possible by a consolidation of community effort; and most would rec-ognize the price of admission is a com-mitment of all the forms of capital funders can each bring to the table in support of the efforts success, including more money. Collaborative fundraising is a high water mark indicative of nonprofits grown more mature and sophisticated in their efforts to make change; and strategic philanthropy is the high water-mark for grantmakers that utilize all the forms of capital available to them to support efforts to find long-term solu-tions. These are marriages of mutual interests in wait of inspired proposals.

But her sentiment stayed with me long after she had returned home, and I starting thinking: Am I the kind of woman who could take a lover? Then the next group of writers arrived with an older, wealthy Belgian among them, and I thought, why not? On a lazy Saturday morning the Belgian invited me for lunch in a nearby village, and it occurred to me that this might be the perfect opportunity to evaluate his potential lover qualities. I put on a new outfit, a pair of silver earrings, and the perfume I thought made me smell pretty. The Belgian drove us down through the mountain roads and across flat spaces where vineyards stretched into the distance. We stopped at a winery on the way, a small affair whose owners the Belgian knew. They greeted us warmly and opened two bottles of wine for us to try. The Belgian, in pressed linen pants and a crisp white shirt, ordered a case of each. I thought, Yes, here is a man who could be my lover. But then on the drive to the village I commented on the lovely platanes that arched over the road, those large-leafed trees with the mottled bark you see all over the South of France. The Belgian shrugged an indifferent shoulder. They cause car accidents,Ž he said. A lot of the villages have been chop-ping them down.Ž I gasped. Thats terrible.Ž Its necessary,Ž he said. And practical.Ž I thought, Not a lover. Still, the afternoon was warm and sunny and it was hard not to feel generous. We finally arrived at the vil-lage, an old place with stone archways and winding medieval streets. We had lunch in an outdoor restaurant and shared a pitcher of good ros. I could feel my ambivalence melting. After lunch we walked to an old abbey that sat just across the river from the vil-lage. The stone rooms were cool even in the heat of the day and I thought perhaps this whole lover business was not so bad. Before we headed back to the car for the long drive up the mountain, we stopped for a coffee in a gar-den caf. Perhaps it was the lingering effects of the wine, perhaps it was the meander through the crumbling abbey, but I confessed to the Belgian that I dreamed of moving to the South of France. And all of your lovers would come visit you there?Ž he said with a grin. I smiled. Should I pencil you in?ŽHe sat back in his chair, suddenly serious. Oh, no,Ž he said. You are too old for me.Ž So not a lover, after all. Q SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artis

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 A27 CONTRACT BRIDGEThe partscore syndrome BY STEVE BECKERPartscore deals lack the dramatic interest of game and slam hands, but there is often more room for good play on each side than there is in the higher-level contracts. Considering that about half the deals in bridge contain no game for either side, lackadaisical play in such deals can prove very costly over the long haul. Take this case where South, playing rubber bridge, is in three spades. If he makes the contract, he scores 90 below the line, which puts him in position to win the rubber on the next or a subse-quent deal. This advantage is estimated to be worth about 200 points with both sides vulnerable. But if he goes down one, South not only loses 100 points, but also loses the 90 as well as the hidden value of the partscore. So about 400 points are at stake, and such a substantial amount should not be taken lightly. Good defense can defeat three spades. West leads the K-A of clubs, then shifts to the six of diamonds. Declarer plays the ten from dummy, and East must rise to the occasion by playing the queen on the ten! Observe what happens if East plays the ace instead. He then cannot afford a diamond continuation because of dum-mys jack. Whatever else he returns, declarer draws trumps as soon as he gains the lead, concedes a heart to the ace and later discards his third diamond on dummys fourth heart to make the contract. But if East plays the diamond queen on dummys ten, the contract cannot be made. South wins with the king, but when West later takes the lead with the ace of hearts, he returns a second dia-mond. This allows East to score two dia-mond tricks, and South goes down one. It might not look important, but East is actually about 400 points better off because of his careful defensive play. Q

and national micro brews, along with a minor league game between the Port Charlotte Stone Crabs and Jupiter Hammerheads. What better place to try beer when you can complement it with your favor-ite baseball snacks? Primarily a concession-based stadium, Roger Dean brings in a third-party company, Delaware North Companies Florida Sportservice, to handle the concessions which include providing everything from food service to even ice sculptures for the suites. DNC, a hospitality management company, serves 50 stadiums, arenas and enter-tainment complexes throughout North America. The Sportservice company partners with the National Football League, National Hockey League, and Major League baseball, where Roger Dean Stadium is among the list of ven-ues to provide lip smacking food and beverages.Ž With the stadium being home to four minor league baseball teams and the annual spring training venue for the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardi-nals, Mr. Bauer says that it is important to bring a taste of each city to the sta-dium. About two years ago, we sat down with DNC Sportservice and decided that we needed to come up with a fla-vor from Miami and a flavor from St. Louis. Were always trying to do some-thing new,Ž he says. When people from out of town come to the ballgames each year, we want them to be able to say hey, this is new! Lets try it!Ž The Cub Hater Dog, fried ravioli, barbecue pork nachos, the fish sand-wich, aka the BillyŽ sandwich, the Miami dog and the Caribbean roasted pork sandwich are the big hits among the Miami and St. Louis natives. The Cub Hater Dog, named after St. Louis biggest rival, is the top seller, and includes pickle spears, onions, celery salt and tomatoes on top of a perfectly grilled dog. Although it is a fan favorite, Daniel Stock, the general manager of DNC Florida Sportservice, says that his favorite dog would be the Barbecue Pork Dog. Not only does the Barbecue Pork Dog include diced toma-toes, pulled barbecue pork, and onions on top, but it also includes bacon „ thats right, bacon wrapped around the hot dog. So many people visit our stadium from different cities, and its important to provide food that they can relate to,Ž says Mr. Stock. We want everyone to have the best experience.Ž Its a mix of technology and tradition.The stadium has introduced GeeBo, a new service that allows fans to dodge the concession lines. Ordering food electronically through a smart phone or a virtual concierge machine is open to baseball fans who want to indulge in their favorite baseball snacks, but do not want to miss a single crack of the bat during the game. Although the food is the talk of the stadium, it isnt the only item that the stadium has to offer. We have margaritas, pia coladas, strawberry daiquiris, draft beer, bottled beer, wine, and so much more,Ž says Mr. Stock. It helps wash down those Roger Dean classics. Our food is grab and go, but it really is delicious,Ž says Mr. Bauer. When people come to the ball park, this is the food that they want, this is what they expect.Ž Q STADIUMFrom page A25 in the know >>What: Baseball & Brews, with more than 50 micro and regional beers>>When: Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 3.

Q Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax 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 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.” 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 consum-ers 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.

Lenci dolls were first made by Elena Konig Scavini (1886-1974). She ran away from home when she was 14 and joined a circus. A few years later, she started making dolls. In the early 1900s, she married Enrico Scavini, and by 1919 she had established the Scavini company to make dolls. By 1922 the company was listed as Lenci di E. Scavini. LenciŽ may have been a pet name for Elena. Her felt dolls were carefully made, with pouty mouths, googly eyes and elaborate felt costumes. They were expensive. The sin-gle word LenciŽ was used as a trademark as early as 1925. The company later had financial trouble and was sold in 1939. It closed in 2002. Lenci dolls are very popular with collectors, but few know about the com-panys line of fetish dolls.Ž They were shaped like vegetables or flowers or imag-inary creatures. Fetish dolls were intro-duced in 1926. A later group was made in the 1960s. One rare fetish doll is a grass-hopper wearing a top hat. A collector paid $336 for it at an important Theriaults doll auction in November 2012.Q: About 10 years ago, I rescued an old stove from a land dump. Its 31 inch-es tall and 15 inches in diameter. A metal plate on it read: Wetters EmeraldŽ and 211.Ž Can you tell me something about this stove? A: H. Wetter & Co. was in business in Memphis, Tenn., before 1883. The com-pany was listed that year as jobbers, agents and dealers in stoves, tinware, hardware, etc.Ž The factory in Memphis burned down in 1902, and the com-pany moved production to an old stove factory in South Pittsburg, Tenn. The company was reorganized in about 1931 and became the United States Stove Co. The South Pittsburg factory was razed in 2003, but the United States Stove Co. still is in business, with facilities in Richard City, Tenn., and Bridgeport, Ala. Q: My old copper bowl is so tarnished that I cant get it clean. Any suggestions? A: First, make sure your bowl is not from a famous maker. Check the bottom for a mark. If you find a mark, you may want to think twice about cleaning it. The patina that builds up through the years protects copper from corrosion, and some collectors dont want the pati-na removed. But if the bowl is not valu-able, you can buy a commercial cleaner at a hardware store or try a couple of home remedies. If the bowl is small, fill a zinc-free pot with enough water to cover the bowl. Add a tablespoon of salt and a cup of vinegar. Put the bowl in the pot, bring the water to a boil and let it boil for several hours. Take the bowl out, let it cool, wash it with liquid dish-washing soap, rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Tarnish often can be removed by using a mixture of vinegar, salt and a bit of flour and water. Or try tomato paste or a mixture of salt and lemon juice. Do not use abrasive cleaners or steel wool. Q: After my husband died, I was going through his things and found a dollar silver certificateŽ autographed by actress Ingrid Bergman. The bill is from Series 1935AŽ and is signed by Secretary of the Treasury Henry Mor-genthau Jr. My husband never said anything about the bills history. What is it worth, and how I can sell it? A: Silver certificates were issued from 1878 to 1964 and could be redeemed for silver dollars or silver bullion. After a certificate was redeemed, it was destroyed and not recirculated. Early silver certificates were larger than todays dollar bill, and are worth more than face value. Small certificates like those in your series were first issued in 1928. The government stopped redeem-ing the certificates for silver in June 1968, but the certificates still can be used as legal tenderŽ at face value. Your certificate without Ingrid Berg-mans autograph would be worth just $1, but her autograph on a 3-by-5-inch card sold at auction for $100 last year. So your certificate probably is worth about that much if the autograph is genuine. Q: My mother was given a 1967 Wurlitzer Model 3100 jukebox. Where is the best place to sell it, and what is it worth? A: The Rudolph Wurlitzer Co. was in business in Cincinnati from 1853 to 1988. It sold pianos made abroad before starting to manufacture its own coin-operated pianos in the 1880s. The company eventually made other musi-cal instruments and manufactured jukeboxes from 1934 to 1974. Your late model is not worth as much as earlier ones, but if it works, it could sell for about $700. You will find websites that post jukeboxes for sale, but you also could try a live auction that specializes in coin-operated machines. You can find those online, too. Tip: Keep old, worn, vintage doll accessories. Even if you substitute new accessories, save the old ones. They add value. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

VINOCool white sangria takes the edge off summer heatNational Sangria Day (as declared by might be Dec. 20 for most of the world, but in Florida, the soul-wrenching heat of summer screams out for the relief of this heavenly combination of chilled fruit and wine. Although its quintessentially Spanish and has been around for hundreds of years, sangria has been well known in the United States ever since it was introduced to this country during the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York. There are as many ways to make sangria as there are people who love it. The only ingredients you need are wine, fresh fruit, spirits, simple syrup and your imagi-nation. Sangre is Spanish for blood, and many sangrias are red. But down here where the sun blazes most of the year, sangria blanca, or white sangria, is a light and refreshing alternative to the traditional red variety. You can also make it with sparkling wine or ros. Good sangria does not call for expensive wine, but the wine does matter, as its the base of the mix. Avoid those with oaky flavors or discernible tannins that will throw off the taste. Selecting fruit is easy: Pick three or four that complement one another. Sliced fruit works better than whole fruit, because the whole fruit skins keep the flavors from mixing well. I prefer making sangria from scratch with fresh fruits, but frozen or canned fruits can work as well. The flavor will be a little different, but the results can be just as satisfying. Fruit juice is a good addition, too, and herbs and spices can also add interesting flavor dimensions. The addition of liquor „ brandy is a traditional choice, but anything goes with sangria „ brings the concoctions strength back up to normal alcohol con-tent for wine. On the other hand, you can make any sangria non-alcoholic by substi-tuting juices for the liquor and wine. If you use sparkling water, soda or sparkling wine in your recipe, dont add it until just before serving. Prepare the juices, fruit and liquor ahead of time, and then add the sparkle to the top of each glass as you pour them. Whatever recipe you use or invent, let the ingredients marry or meld for a while, to allow the fruits to fully flavor the liq-uid. Here are two simple recipes Ive recently tried. Both were delicious and fruity, although I wouldnt use as much sweetener the next time around.Sparkling Golden SangriaRecipe courtesy 8 servings Prep time: 20 minutes, then chill for at least an hourFor the orange liqueur I used triple sec, and for the sparkling wine, a crisp Span-ish cava. I used fresh fruits, not frozen.Ingredients Q 3 cups white grape juice, chilled Q 1/2 cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau Q 1/4 cup superfine or granulated sugar Q 3 TBS honey Q 1 medium nectarine, pitted and chopped Q 1 navel orange, quartered and thinly sliced lengthwise Q 3/4 cup fresh or frozen sweet cherries, pitted and halved Q 3/4 cup fresh golden or red raspberries Q 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves Q 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves Q 1 750-milliliter bottle sparkling white wine, chilled (dry works best with this recipe) Q Ice DirectionsIn a large pitcher or glass jar, combine grape juice, orange liqueur, sugar and honey, stirring until sugar and honey dissolve. Stir in nectarine, orange, cher-ries, raspberries, basil and mint. Chill for up to 24 hours, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, add sparkling wine. Serve over ice.Peach Mango PineappleWhite SangriaRecipe courtesy 8 servingsPrep time: 20-40 minutes, depending on if you use fresh or frozen fruit, then chill at least 1 hour. I used a Washington State chardonnay and agave for the sweet-ener, and all fresh fruits for peak flavors.Ingredients Q 1 bottle white wine (chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, or similar) Q 1/3 cup peach schnapps Q 1/4 cup sugar, or to taste (or stevia, agave or another sweetener) Q 3/4 cup mango chunks, frozen (you could use fresh, but save money and buy frozen, plus they act as ice cubes) Q 3/4 cup pineapple chunks, canned Q 1/3 cup pineapple juice (use whatever is in the can) DirectionsCombine first three ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until sweetener dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, stir and refrigerate until chilled. Cheers!

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 1-7, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE My favorite hot dog is a chili dog with Cheez Whiz and mustard,Ž says Jeret Schroeder. Mr. Schroeder, one of the owners of Das Dog, is originally from Vineland, N.J., where he says he was always surrounded by the restaurant business. Growing up, my dad was in food retail, wholesale and production,Ž he says. I fol-lowed suit until I started car racing.Ž While attending Delaware Valley College for food ser-vice management and food service science, Mr. Schroed-er says that he found a need for speed. Car racing became a passion he not only decided to pursue, he also become a professional. Mr. Schroeder became a driver in the Indy Racing League, where he raced in the India-napolis 500 and placed fourth at the 2000 Vegas Indy 300. Although his racing career had taken off, he says that he finished college, earning a degree in business at a community college in Cumberland County. After retiring from a life in the fast lane, Mr. Schroeder decided to follow his family to Florida. When Mr. Schroeders brother, David, opened the first Das Dog in Abacoa, Jeret was working in restaurants in Miami, where he became a manager for a bakery that focused on artisan bread. But it wasnt long before the Schroeder brothers became partners at Das Dog. My brother created this awesome concept with all different kinds of gourmet hotdogs,Ž he says. I invested in Das Dog, and I wanted to be where my investment was.Ž Mr. Schroeder says that he helped open the Juno Beach location in 2012. And, when you look on the menu, his need for speed is still apparent, from a hotdog with sauted onions, whiz, bacon and tomato, otherwise known as the Das 500. While Mr. Schroeder runs the Juno location, his brother David closed Das Dog in Abacoa and opened Das Biergarten a couple doors down from its original location. With the colors yellow and red encompassing the restaurant, you may think that ketchup and mustard are the only toppings available. But, at Das Dog, toppings include anything from mac and cheese and nachos to Fritos. All of our hot dogs are national deli brand,Ž says Mr. Schroeder. We have great food, great service, and we want to make Das Dog a well-known name in the area.Ž Name: Jeret Schroeder Age: 43 Original hometown: Vineland, N.J.

I like mostly shellfish.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be in the restaurant business? Anything in the restaurant business is a time consuming commitment, and you really have to want it whole heartedly. You need to be hands-on and attentive to what is going on in your business. But, ultimately, it is about making your customers happy because unhappy customers will never come back.Ž Q In the kitchen with...Jeret Schroeder, Das Dog BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus We at Florida Weeklys Cuisine Department still are asking ourselves when season ended because it does not seem to have stopped for summer.
