You want to share what you see and know (or think you know) with your readers, whom you count as friends. Consequently, self-indulgence is a danger. But let me risk it here by laying down some thoughts about the cattle ranch my family built in Colorado start-ing almost a century ago. My grandfather, Walter Nash, homesteaded west of PikeÂs Peak, then mar-ried in 1914, having arrived from Mis-souri in 1898 as a boy of 14 to work on the big Stirrup Ranch. His pay was room, board and one cow every six months. He later raised seven children in the mountains with my Kentucky-born grandmother, Elizabeth. One of those is my mother, Ellen Jean. Together and with their two sons, Walter and Elizabeth created one of the larger cattle operations in the Colorado Rockies. I spent significant portions of my youth on the Nash ranch, and like many Americans still do, I identified with the cowboy way, at least as I understood its practice in my family. (When it came to the ethic IÂm about to describe, my father, who arrived from Albany, N.Y., in the late 1940s to meet my mother, was just as ÂcowboyÂŽ and just as tough as any who ever saddled a cow horse by upbringing.) It goes something like this: Try hard, harder than anybody else. Never whine, never give up, never allow pain or dis-comfort to stop you from reaching a goal. Remain cheerful in all weathers. Think for yourself. Adapt to circum-stances. Keep your word. In fence build-ing over 9,000 feet or in life, either one, Âjust put both hands on it and give it hell,ÂŽ as my Uncle Franklin once instructed my brother. Tolerance is part of the cowboy way, too Â„ the notion that other people can make up their own minds about politics, religion or lifestyle without interference from you, as long as they donÂt decide to interfere with your choices. And finally, the cowboy way insists on a chivalry of sorts: You help those in need who cross your trail, if the chance arises. But none of that is enough, nowadays Â„ and not because life is more compli-cated in the 21st century. There were complications then and there are com-plications now, for individuals. Instead, the cowboy way is not enough because it fails to take into account what we did, and therefore who we really are, both as Nashes or Williamses, in my case, or as Americans, in my case and yours, together. I realized this last week when I took my youngest son, Nash, into the Colo-rado mountains where I still have some property with my mother and sister. Only a generation or two before my grandfather, the Ute Indians kept a sum-mer hunting camp up in that country. As a boy, I routinely found their arrow-heads and grinders on ÂFlint Hill,ÂŽ a quarter-mile from the cabin and corrals where the Nashes later headquartered. My family inherited land the nation took from them by force. And we con-tinue to participate in a tradition that begins with that taking. People like us embraced the same history in Florida, too Â„ here where the United States did its level best to commit genocide by wiping out the men, women and children of the Seminole tribe so we could support our contem-porary lifestyles, from agricultural to urban. The other part of the cowboy way, therefore Â„ the part I havenÂt men-tioned yet Â„ is both unethical and immoral: If you can take it, if you can make it yours through muscle and grit alone, it should be yours. Some called that Âmanifest destiny.ÂŽ IÂve accepted its harvest blithely, because IÂm too selfish to give back what my forbears took. I could; I could find the remaining Utes and hand them a few acres of high range in a personal symbolic gesture that might effectively revitalize the cowboy way for me and for my children. But since IÂm not going to do that, and others like me arenÂt either, the cowboy way is in danger of losing a pulse, per-manently. What I hope to teach my son, Nash, therefore, is a new-model cowboy way, one that includes the courage to look in a mirror not tricked out to hide warts. I figure thatÂs the only way to survive honorably as the 21st century unfolds Â„ the only way to avoid hanging up the saddle and marking the grave of an American temperament that remains as good or better than any, at its best. And not good enough, otherwise.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONSuicide by government amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The case of the city of Detroit isnÂt much of a murder mystery. Various sus-pects have been fingered in its demise: The global economy. The fall of the auto industry. The decline of manufactur-ing generally. But itÂs simpler than that. Detroit died of its own hand. The city undertook a controlled experiment in what happens if you are governed by a toxic combination of Great Society big spenders, race hus-tlers, crooks, public-sector unions and ineffectual reformers. It spent and mis-governed itself into the ground. Detroit discovered that all the social spending in the world doesnÂt deliver order, fam-ily stability, education, economic dyna-mism or effective governance. The cityÂs downfall started long before anyone imagined that the Big Three would ever be anything but over-whelmingly dominant. Hardly anyone had heard of Toyota in 1967 when riots ripped the city and a long crime wave began that made it unlivable. According to Henry Payne of The Detroit News, the murder rate climbed from 13 per 100,000 residents in 1966 to 51 per 100,000 by 1976. It was the cityÂs dysfunction that made it unappealing to the auto compa-nies rather than the diminished state of the auto companies that made the city dysfunctional. The cityÂs mayor for 20 years, Coleman Young, was an ethically challenged black nationalist who hated the suburbs. Under Young, journalist Zev Chafets writes, Detroit had Âall the trappings of a third world city Â„ the showcase projects, an external enemy and the cult of personality.ÂŽ And this was in the good old days of the 1970s and 1980s. By this point, Detroit had already reached terminal velocity on its own. GM had nothing to do with the City Council promising benefits to retirees that it couldnÂt possibly pay. Chrys-ler didnÂt disgracefully mismanage city agencies. Ford didnÂt disastrously degrade the cityÂs human capital. Detroit is a city that has celebrated and feasted on government for decades and yet is incapable of the most basic function of government. Crimes basi-cally arenÂt solved. The clearance rate is 8.7 percent. This in a city that needs a first-rate police force. Its crime rate is five times the national average. Henry Payne notes that 80 percent of the cityÂs children grow up fatherless, and that of the 50 percent of black men who are high-school dropouts, more than 70 percent donÂt have a job, and 60 percent have done time. The city rewards anyone who canÂt escape its boundaries Â„ more than a million people have since 1950, when it had 1.8 million residents Â„ with stifling taxes in a futile attempt to keep up with spending. It has the highest per capita tax burden in Michigan, despite the low per capita income of its residents. None of this is the product of the Âcreative destructionÂŽ of capitalism. Despite globalization, urban America is alive and well outside of Detroit. Pittsburgh experienced similar economic disloca-tion when the steel industry collapsed, but hasnÂt descended into an urban dystopia. Cities in the South like Hous-ton and Raleigh, N.C., are economically vibrant and attractive to new residents. The way Detroit was once, a very long time ago. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Bradley ManningÂ’s convictionsÂWhat a dangerous edifice War is, how easily it may fall to pieces and bury us in its ruins,ÂŽ wrote Carl von Clause-witz, the 19th-century Prussian general and military theorist, in his seminal text ÂOn War,ÂŽ close to 200 years ago. These lines came from the chapter ÂInforma-tion in War,ÂŽ a topic that resonates today, from Fort Meade, Md., where Pfc. Brad-ley Manning has just been convicted of espionage in a military court, to the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has lived for more than a year, having been granted political asylum to avoid politi-cal persecution by the United States, to Russia, where National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden has been granted temporary asylum. ManningÂs conviction sparked momentary interest among members of the elite media in the U.S., who spent scant time at the two-month court-martial, located just miles north of Washington, D.C. ManningÂs supporters expressed relief that he was found not guilty of the most serious charge, aid-ing the enemy, which would likely have carried a sentence of life in prison. He was convicted on 20 of 22 charges, and could face up to 136 years in prison. The sentencing hearing is under way. ÂBradley ManningÂs alleged disclosures have exposed war crimes, sparked revolutions and induced democratic reforms,ÂŽ Assange said from the embas-sy. ÂHe is the quintessential whistle-blower.ÂŽ Interestingly, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates wrote about the leaks to Sen. Carl Levin in 2010, saying, ÂThe review to date has not revealed any sensitive intelligence sources and methods compromised by this disclo-sure.ÂŽ Manning made a statement at the start of the court-martial, wherein he took responsibility for the leaks, but, importantly, expressed his moti-vation. He commented specifically on the Apache attack helicopter video that recorded the slaughter of a dozen civil-ians in Baghdad on July 12, 2007. Two of those killed worked for the Reuters news agency, cameraman Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and his driver, Saeed Chmagh, a father of four. We can listen to Manning in his own words, thanks to an unauthorized audio recording of his statement, anonymous-ly leaked. He said: ÂThe most alarm-ing aspect of the video to me was the seeming delightful blood-lust the aerial weapons team seemed to have. They dehumanized the individuals they were engaging and seemed to not value human life, and referred to them as quote-unquote Âdead bastards,Â and con-gratulated each other on their ability to kill in large numbers. ... For me, this seemed similar to a child torturing ants with a magnifying glass.ÂŽ One of the charges for which Manning was found guilty was Âwanton pub-lication.ÂŽ ItÂs unprecedented in military law. ManningÂs lawyer called it a made-up offense. The real offense, for which no one has been charged, is the wanton disregard for human life that Manning exposed. ManningÂs leak gave Reuters, and the world, a graphic view of the horror of modern war, of the violent death of two media workers in the line of duty. As the young soldier also said in his eloquent statement, ÂI believed that if the general public, especially the Ameri-can public, had access to the information contained [in the leaks], it could spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign policy in general as it related to Iraq and Afghani-stan.ÂŽ Indeed, he did spark such a debate. The latest wave of disclosures, from Edward Snowden, has only intensi-fied the debate, with a rare bipartisan coalition in Congress growing to clamp down on what many see as a runaway national-security state. While a legisla-tive amendment by Republican Justin Amash and Democrat John Conyers in the U.S. House of Representatives was narr owly defeated last week, the two have authored a stand-alone bill, H.R. 2399, that will do the same. Carl von Clausewitz wrote, ÂThe great uncertainty of all data in War is a peculiar difficulty, because all action must, to a certain extent, be planned in a mere twilight.ÂŽ Manning took incredibly courageous actions to release data, to pierce the fog of war, to make public the machinations of modern American war-making. Edward Snowden has exposed the sophistication and extraordinary reach of the U.S. surveillance state, cracking down on those who would dare to release information. And Julian Assange sits within the four walls of his embassy redoubt, persecuted for the crime of publishing. Yet those who planned the wars, those who committed war crimes, those who conduct illegal spying, for now, walk free. Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESIn your handsThe No. 1 thing that will give your pet a better life while saving you money? Weight loss BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhenever I write about veterinary medicine, no matter if itÂs basic preven-tive care tests or cutting-edge specialty or emergency procedures, itÂs inevitable that IÂll hear from readers whoÂll use the topic as a reason to complain about the cost of care. Although I understand why people feel that way, I think itÂs often unfair. Veteri-narians perform similar and often identi-cal procedures to those of doctors, but at a fraction of the cost of human medicine. Yet I realize that pointing out that the $3,000 procedure that will save a petÂs life would be 10 times that cost in human medicine doesnÂt help a bit if you donÂt have one-tenth of that amount available anyway. I canÂt fix that situation, and neither can the veterinarians I know. They have to pay all the costs of doing business, and theyÂve struggled to get by right along with everyone else as the economy has staggered along. Pet health insurance can help, as can third-party credit plans Â„ and I recommend looking into them both before youÂre faced with hard decisions. But what frustrates me Â„ and so many veterinarians I know Â„ is the way that so many pet lovers overlook, downplay or completely ignore the No. 1 thing that will keep their pets healthier, longer-lived and out of veterinary offices. Even more astonishing, this not-so-secret way to save money on veterinary care can be absolutely free. What is it? Take excess weight off your pet. ThereÂs a better than 50 percent chance that if youÂre reading this and have a pet, this topic concerns you and your pet. ThatÂs because more than half of all pets in the United States are overweight Â„ many of them desperately so. Veteri-narians say that we have gotten so used to seeing fat pets that we have come to think itÂs normal. WeÂre often not even able to recognize that our own pets are overweight. If you cannot see a tuck in (from above) or up (from the side) behind your petÂs rib cage, and cannot see just a hint of rib under a little bit of padding, your pet is fat. IÂm not saying that to make you feel guilty. IÂm saying that as a nonjudgmental statement of fact. I long ago came to terms with the idea that the subject of obesity in people is complicated and charged with emotions Â„ but in pets, it shouldnÂt be. Pets cannot feed themselves, and they cannot overeat unless you overfeed them. Even if you and your pets lead sedentary lives, you can adjust your petsÂ daily portions accord-ingly. TheyÂll even learn to stop begging if you stop rewarding that behavior. Slow, steady weight loss is what youÂre going for, especially for cats. ThatÂs because crash diets in fat cats can trigger a deadly condition known as Âfatty liver disease.ÂŽ If youÂre free-feeding, stop, and if youÂre not measuring, start. You can buy a ÂdietÂŽ food or you can reduce por-tions and add ÂemptyÂŽ bulk to the kibble you already use by adding green beans or pumpkin to smaller amounts. Wet food is another good strategy, since the water content makes pets feel more full. ItÂs an especially good strategy for cats, many of whom are chronically dehydrated. Your veterinarian can tailor a weightloss plan, or you can use an app such as my friend Dr. Patty KhulyÂs ÂThe Fat Dog DietÂŽ (free from thefatdogdiet.com), which shows you how to figure out if your dog is fat, by how much, and advises how much to feed to get results from almost every brand of kibble sold. (Pet food labels are often notoriously generous with their recommended portions.) Do what you can, but do something, please. I see pets every day whose lives are miserable, and whose owners seem oblivious. If you do nothing else today, take an honest look at your pet, and put your hands underneath that lovely coat. If you find heÂs more fat than fluff, you need to make changes Â„ the sooner, the better. HereÂs my bottom line: If you have an obese pet, you have no business com-plaining about the costs of treating condi-tions caused by or made worse by your petÂs weight. Taking weight off will make everyone feel better: you, your veterinarian and especially your pet. ThereÂs so much to lose Â„ and so much to gain by doing so.

The horrific attack has left an imprint on our souls of the sacred freedom that our country was founded on Â„ the freedom to speak, to come and go as we please, the freedom to be. Americans stood strong with great resolve. People reached out to one another, displayed their flags and joined together as a united front. When the chips were down, we were all one. Doctors, Nurses, clergy, friends, neighbors, caregivers, and everyone that could, volunteered their time and energy to assist, rebuild and renew the faith. We were proud to be Americans. In keeping with that patriotic spirit, the Town of Juno Beach envisioned a place in our community where people could reflect on our nationÂs strength, resolve and unity. We will never forget. Artist Mark Fuller has designed a monument with the intent to express compas-sion and an image of peace and tranquil-ity. The graphic imagery and materials are visually inviting, positive and welcoming. In his words, the heart form was selected as the primary image for the broad emo-tional symbolic language it speaks in terms of spirituality, devotion and compassion. The four birds silhouetted against the heart can be literally interpreted as a tranquil image of the outdoor nature of Juno Beach but are symbolic reference to the four deadly planes of 9/11. The arrangement of the birds is intentionally done in a way that, as a group, they visually break the heart: a metaphor for the emotional impact of 9/11 on us all. The split leg detail that makes up the base support is a direct translation of the distinctive architectural Tri-dent columns that extended up the first seven floors of the World Trade Center buildings 1 and 2. The overlaid surface is done in stainless steel and is relevant to the material of the World Trade Center and that of the aircraft. These elements are not only symbolic images essential to the intent of the memo-rial but they also serve to reflect the his-tory, culture, and essence of Juno Beach as a tight-knit community Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani said, ÂThe attacks of September 11 were intended to break our spirit. Instead, we have emerged stronger and more uni-fied. We feel renewed devotion to the prin-ciples of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYere are a few definitions people made up this sum-mer. ÂFood herp,ÂŽ the spreading of a desire for a specif-ic food or restaurant from person to person. ÂBropocalypse,ÂŽ when a group of guys get wasted. And Âbook hangover,ÂŽ when you finish a book and the real world feels incomplete or surreal because youÂre still living in the world of the book. These were posted on Urban Dictionary, a website where people are free to define things more or less how-ever they want to. The terminology ranges from brilliant to revolting, but high school cafeterias everywhere have probably heard worse. The site is full of sophomoric silliness and an anarchic spirit (thereÂs also mean spiritedness, bigotry, the usual suspects), but itÂs also a living thing, churning with words, phrases and acro-nyms as they evolve in the culture. A new definition is added every 30 sec-onds, the websiteÂs creator says. There are more than seven million of them, including many variations on one word, going back to 1999. ÂLifeÂŽ is defined hundreds of times, for instance. And new acronyms, often used in text messages like ROLF (rolling on the floor laughing) might also mean, ÂTo eat huge portions of food,ÂŽ according to one Urban Dictionary posting; as in ÂI ROLFed an entire large pizza.ÂŽ Jacqueline Whitmore, a nationally known etiquette expert and found-er of The Proto-col School of Palm Beach, warns that such Âtext speakÂŽ has shifting meanings that could lead to misunderstandings. It might all work out fine with a friend, but a boss, co-worker or client who saw ROLF could think you were suggest-ing they are piggish eaters, instead of funny. ÂI donÂt think (text-speak) is appropriate unless you know someone extremely well,ÂŽ said Ms. Whitmore. She has long used language professionally, as a public speaker and author, most recently in her new book, ÂPoised for Success: Mastering the Four Quali-ties That Distinguish Outstanding Pro-fessionals.ÂŽ At the same time, texting has become a way of life and for her that has meant Âretraining my mind.ÂŽ ÂIÂm learning to be a little bit more brief and conversational and not so for-mal,ÂŽ she said. English is a game that moves as you play; and five centuries after its most famous architect considered whether Âto be or not to be,ÂŽ its rules and regu-lations are still up for grabs in novels, on iPhone screens, and in lunchhalls. Keeping up with it all can take constant vigilance. If youÂre not cool, for exam-ple, then you might be hot. If youÂre not hot then youÂre sick, or dope, rad or glad, even bad to bone. But itÂs all good Â„ whatever. We know what we mean. ÂCool became hot which became cool again,ÂŽ explains Bob Massey, a freelance writer and Florida Weekly contributor. Clear enough?If not, Tom DeMarchi, who directs the Sanibel Island WriterÂs Conference and is an instructor at Florida Gulf Coast University, is here to help. In this edition, in a nice, long interview, he covers a wide range of topics including the contributions of novelists, poets, tweeters, and texting, as well as Urban Dictionary, ÂVerbal Darwinism,ÂŽ and the future. Youthful voices are still at the forefront of defining the world in words, he says. Bryn Parsons, a teenager who was having breakfast with her mom at a Starbucks in Fort Myers on a Thursday at the end of July, sometimes uses the phrase, ÂYouÂre on that grizzly.ÂŽ It means ÂyouÂre on top of that game,ÂŽ she said, or you have command of the situation. Her sister and her sisterÂs boyfriend made up the phrase at a music festival, but the precise meaning and origin of ÂgrizzlyÂŽ in this context is unclear Â„ perhaps a reference to being in control of something ferocious, such as grizzly bear. Ms. ParsonsÂ mom, Dana Parsons, is familiar if not friendly with Urban Dictionary. ÂI have to say itÂs explained some stuff to me,ÂŽ she said in a quiet but pointed way which seemed to suggest that whatever had been ÂexplainedÂŽ for her on the website was in bad if not ter-rible taste. While some words disappear into historyÂs back lot, others are dragged out and put back into service. ÂIÂm trying to bring back old-time words and phrases Â„ Âdiddling aroundÂ and the oh-so English and proper ÂbumÂ instead of butt,ÂŽ wrote freelance writer and Florida Weekly contributor Nanci Theoret. While we get back to working on that and other things, enjoy the definitions from Urban Dictionary and provided also by people interviewed for this article, on the next page. Q New words popping up at Internet-speed Reinventing EnglishHBY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@Â” oridaweekly.com Tom DeMarchi is an instructor in the Department of Language & Literature at Florida Gulf Coast University and direc-tor of the Sanibel Island Writers Con-ference. He answered some questions about through e-mail about language in popular culture. Q: What are a few of your favorite new words and where are you hear-ing them?A: IÂm so unhip that by the time I hear a new word (ÂtruthinessÂŽ) or become aware of the repurposing/branding of an existing word (ÂtweetÂŽ), itÂs probably already totally mainstream or fallen into disuse. Like many people, I look up unfa-miliar words just so I can follow what people are saying. This happens on Face-book and Twitter a lot. ThereÂs an ever-expanding social network vocabulary made up of abbreviations (ÂadorbsÂŽ), acronyms (ÂIIRCÂŽ), hyphenates (Âphoto-bombÂŽ), and hybrids to describe new tech-dependent behaviors (ÂsextingÂŽ). Then there are the double duty words that have become so much a part of our daily lives that theyÂre both proper nouns and verbs (ÂTiVo,ÂŽ ÂGoogleÂŽ and ÂFacebookÂŽ being the most obvious). If you want to hear where the language is going, for better or worse, eavesdrop on a conversation in any high school cafete-ria. YouÂll overhear an endless stream of neologistic dexterity and butchery, often in the same sentence. Q: Are novelists, screenwriters, poets, Tweeters, or someone else playing the largest role in evolving English?A: YouÂd have to put yourself in a sensory deprivation chamber to avoid the sources of all the new words and phras-es that are transforming English: TV, the Internet, movies, music, conversations, books and magazines and newspapers, medicine, science, politics, academia, pop culture, technology, and advertise-ments. ThatÂs not to say that all sources wield equal influence. For novelists and poets to lead the way in language evolution, they would have to play a dominant role in our culture, and thatÂs not the case any-more, if it ever was. They might play a prominent role, but not a dominant one. Occasionally youÂll get an author like J.K. Rowling whoÂs so popular and inventive that you have an entire gener-ation fluent in Potterese. But remember that RowlingÂs influence increased expo-nentially thanks to the film adaptations. Millions of people saw the Harry Potter movies and learned about muggles and quidditch and mudbloods without ever having read a single sentence from Row-ling. [Full disclosure: IÂm typing these answers in a cafe and had to ask four college-age women at an adjacent table for examples of certain popular Harry Potter vocabulary words. Not only did they check my spelling, but they also informed me that an earthbound version of quidditch is played at the University of Vermont by students holding broom-sticks between their legs as they hurl dodge balls through hula hoops.] Television, movies, and the Internet dominate when it comes to language evolution, simply because they have the largest audiences, and said audiences are constantly tuned in and logged on. Language is really being democratized in a very exciting way. Anyone can coin a new term, create a new word, and if it gets traction it goes viral and assimi-lates into public discourse. As technol-ogy develops, we have to develop the language to accommodate it. Plus, as we become more and more connected to people in different locations from different cultures, cross pollination and verbal inventiveness are inevitable and necessary if we want to communicate effectively. Q: What are we gaining and what are we losing language-wise in the Internet era?A: A few years ago I read a study that said a new word is created, on average, every 100 minutes. That means that every year over 5,000 new words are added to the approximately 1,000,000 existing English words. The same study estimated that the average person with a functioning brain and a college edu-cation knows about 50,000 to 75,000 words. The estimate for someone with-out a college education is around 35,000 to 50,000. A hyper-educated, bibliophil-ic verbivore (i.e., a word nerd) knows about 100,000, give or take a few nouns. My point is itÂs tough if not impossible to keep current with every new word that enters the lexicon, but, unlike any other time in history, we have instant access to them, thanks to the Internet. So weÂre gaining a lot in terms of sheer volume of the new terminology to pro-cess and understand an ever-changing, integrated world. I think this is a good thing. We can handle it. The human brain has evolved into a highly efficient language assimilation machine, and the English language, like the human brain, is exciting and dynamic Â„ and will most likely survive Â„ because of its open borders and ability to adapt to changing circumstances. As a teacher, the only thing IÂm evangelical about is thoughtful, critical read-ing and writing. (If this were Facebook I might try to be clever and say IÂm elangelical.) So the only thing IÂm con-cerned about losing is an appreciation for and love of language. More than that, I worry about language becoming deval-ued and eclipsed by images. But IÂm not worried about new words replacing the old, or the odd usage or grammar rule becoming obsolete. There are linguistic purists (aka prescriptivists) who are committed to pre-serving certain standardized grammar and usage rules. The most dogmatic prescriptivists are deeply suspicious of new, unfamiliar words, and are often-times reluctant to acknowledge or use them. Had prescriptivists been in charge 1000 years ago, the language would have calcified and weÂd all be speaking like Beowulf. Q: What authorÂs work is the most daring linguistically?A: I have no idea. I read a lot of contemporary authors, but even if I read all day every day, which I donÂt, IÂd get to only a small percentage of the books being published, and I probably wouldnÂt read a book if its biggest sell-ing point was a daring linguistic style. I want a story, and the language best suited to tell the story. The language is daring if itÂs exploring an uncomfort-able truth, not because itÂs piling on the When good words rise to the top Visit these websites for more words and de nitions>> www.urbandictionary.com >> www.wordspy.com >> www.knowyourmeme.com WHITMORE

While I enjoy playful lan-guage and cleverness, to a degree, a book full of nothing but verbal gymnastics is like listening to an album of nothing but guitar solos. It might be technically bril-liant and compositionally groundbreak-ing, but not very interesting in the long term Â„ not if youÂre interested in story-telling or songs. All that being said, IÂm in awe of writers who can write beauti-ful sentences that move a story forward or develop a character. Nabokov did that. So did Austen, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Bellow, Woolf, and Updike. Some con-temporary examples include Toni Mor-rison, Junot Diaz, Cheryl Strayed, Rox-ane Gay, Steve Almond, Alice Munro, Jeffrey Eugenides, Lorrie Moore, Sam Lipsyte, Jennifer Egan, Michael Chabon, Nick Hornby, Denis Johnson, Karen Rus-sell, Tom Bissell, David Foster Wallace, George Saunders, Richard Russo, Chris Adrian, Joan Didion, Dave Eggers, Rich-ard Ford, Cormack McCarthy, Julianna Baggott, William Giraldi, Zadie Smith, Roddy Doyle, etc. etc. Q: Who is todayÂs Shakespeare?A: I donÂt know, but whoever it is has an Internet connection, a comprehensive cable package, a well-worn library card, and has read Shakespeare. Q: What do you make of Urban Dictionary and its huge database of linguistic invention...crude? inspir-ing? good for language? bad? A: Honestly, I wasnÂt familiar with the site until you asked me this question. I checked it out, and thereÂs a whole range of words and definitions that could be categorized as brilliant or silly or crude or useless. I think anything that pro-motes inventive, playful use of the lan-guage is generally good, though I can see why some people might be offended by some of the terms and definitions. My feeling about Urban Dictionary is this: if you donÂt like certain words, donÂt use them. If theyÂre truly hurtful or vile or demeaning, discourage others from using them, and explain why. DonÂt yell. Since this whole interview has been about the evolution of English, letÂs assume that in the long run, the strongest, fittest, most useful words will survive, and the weak ones will be weeded out. Natural selection doesnÂt just occur in nature. It happens in print and in conversation, too. ItÂs verbal Darwinism.

Thus, ProPublicaÂs Freedom of Information Act demand for a seemingly simple all-hands search was turned down in July with the NSA informing Pro-Publica that the best it could do would be to go one-by-one through the emails of each of the agencyÂs 30,000 employees Â„ which would be prohibitively expensive. (ProPublica reported that companywide searches are ÂcommonÂŽ for large corpo-rations, which must respond to judicial subpoenas and provide information for their own internal investigations.) Q Recurring themesQ To commemorate its 500th Âdeep brain stimulationÂŽ surgery in May, UCLA Medical Center live-Tweeted its opera-tion on musician Brad Carter, 39, dur-ing which he was required to strum his guitar and sing so that surgeons would know where in his brain to plant the electrical stimulator that would relieve his ParkinsonÂs disease symptoms. Mr. Carter had developed hand tremors in 2006, but the stimulator, once it is prop-erly programed and the surgery healed, is expected to reduce his symptoms, restore some guitar-playing ability, and reduce his medication need. (And, yes, patients normally remain conscious during the surgery.)Q Firefighters are not infrequently called on to extricate adventurous men from sex toys, but one Âarmor-plat(ed)ÂŽ device, six inches in diam-eter, into which the 51-year-old Ger-man entrapped himself in July in Ibiza, Mallorca, was especially challenging, according to the Diario de Mallorca newspaper, and took two hours and a dose of anesthesia toward the end. The saw blade the emergency workers used wore out during the rescue and had to be replaced, along with two sets of bat-teries. The man was kept overnight at Can Misses hospital, but was otherwise OK.Q Americans stage dog shows, and Middle-Easterners stage camel beauty contests, and in June, the annual Ger-man Holstein Show took over the city of Oldenburg, with the two-day event won by ÂLoh Nastygirl,ÂŽ topping bovine beauties from Germany, Luxembourg and Austria. The event is also a show-case for the cow hairdressers, who trim cowsÂ leg and belly hair (to better dis-play their veins). Said one dresser, ÂIt is just like with us people Â„ primping helps.ÂŽ Groomed or not, cows with pow-erful legs, bulging udders and a strong bone structure are the favorites.Q Fruit of any kind retails for outlandish prices in Japan, but some, such as Yubari cantaloupes, are so prestigious that they are often presented as gifts to friends or colleagues, and it was only mildly surprising that a pair of the mel-ons sold in May for the equivalent of about $15,700 at auction at the Sapporo Central Wholesale Market. The melons appeared to be perfect specimens, with their T-shaped stalk still attached. The record melon-pair price, set in 2008, is about $24,500 measured at todayÂs exchange rate.Q Some crime-scene investigative techniques seem far-fetched, as News of the Weird has reported, but police use of Âear printsÂŽ might be approaching the mainstream. Britain convicted its first burglar based on an ear print in 1998, and in May 2013, investigators in Lyon, France, tied a 26-year-old man from the Republic of Georgia to a string of about 80 burglaries Â„ by taking prints from doors the man had leaned against while listening for activity inside the home.Q It is not quite to the level of the $15,700 Japanese melons, but the behav-ior of women descending upon New York City stores in June for the annual ÂsaleÂŽ on designer shoes is nonethe-less a spectacle. The event makes the cityÂs upscale commercial district look like Âan insane asylum of very well-dressed women,ÂŽ reported The New York Times. The shoesÂ everyday prices require, wrote the Times, Âthe willful suspension of rational thinking.ÂŽ The average transaction at Barneys is $850, still far below, for example, a pair of wicker-basket-like sandals ($1,995 by Charlotte Olympia) or a certain Chris-tian Louboutin pump ($1,595 Â„ $4,645 if in crocodile). Prices are so unhinged, according to the Times, that standards from the iconic ÂSex and the CityÂŽ designer Manolo Blahnik are now low-price leaders, holding at about $595. Q Zero-tolerance Q Second-grader Josh WelchÂs twoday suspension in March was upheld on appeal in June by Park Elementary School officials of Anne Arundel Coun-ty, Md., even though his offense was that he had nibbled a pastry into the shape of a gun, which he then waved around. Said JoshÂs attorney: ÂIf this (school sys-tem) canÂt educate a 7-year-old without putting him out of school, how are they going to deal with 17-year-olds?ÂŽQ Briar MacLean, 13, of Calgary, Alberta, was reprimanded by school officials in May (and then also lost an appeal) after he stepped between two students because one, holding a knife, was bullying the other. The vice princi-pal appeared to regard Mr. BriarÂs action as equal to that of the bully, telling Mr. BriarÂs mother later that the school does not Âcondone heroics,ÂŽ and that it was Âbeside the pointÂŽ that Mr. Briar might well have prevented a slashing (which could have occurred if he had left the boys behind to go find a teacher). Q UpdatesQ It took a year and a half of legal wrangling over a technicality, but Mar-shall University was finally dropped in June as one of the defendants in Louis Helmburg IIIÂs lawsuit for his injuries when fellow party-goer Travis Hughes shot bottle rockets out of his posterior in 2011. Mr. Helmburg, some will recall, was so startled by Mr. HughesÂ stunt that he fell off the rail-less deck at a frater-nity party staged by Alpha Tau Omega of Marshall University. Mr. Hughes and the fraternity remain as defendants in the January 2012 lawsuit. Q

How can I look like that?Answer: IÂ’m getting close to the big Â“Five-OÂ” myself, and I recommend invest-ing in porcelain veneers. I did it 14 years ago and, like my patients say, it is Â“the best thing I ever did for myself.Â” Although a significant investment at $1,400 per tooth, 10 upper porcelain veneers will permanently change the color and shape of your teeth. Many patients opt to have veneers to create straight teeth versus brac-es. They donÂ’t stain and, with proper care, can last a very long time. Some of my patients have the same veneers I placed 20 years ago with no need to re-do them. Veneers are not crowns. The teeth are not drilled down to stumps or Â“spikes.Â” We just remove .8 millimeters of enamel off the face of the teeth to allow thin facings of porcelain to be permanently affixed to the toothÂ’s surface. Usually, patients are given local anesthesia to numb the teeth for this process, which can take two to three visits. Studies show the first body part that someone notices upon meeting someone for the first time is the smile. Nothing shows age more than teeth. Veneers cost as much as used car, but will not depreciate, never fade and could, perhaps, last a life time.

Question: How Can I Permanently Erase Fine Wrinkles and Repair Sun Damaged Skin without surgery?Answer: Â“To understand the solution, one must understand the causeÂ”...anony-mous Fine wrinkles under the eyes, around the mouth, and then over time throughout our face develop because our skin loses the natural elastic fibers that snap our skin back to smooth after animating. In addition, the sun Â“cooksÂ” the collagen fibers that hold the cells tightly together and they fragment and break up creating lines and creases. Add to this insult a stimulation of our pig-ment cells in the deeper layers by UV light from the sun and now we get those annoy-ing sun spots that give our age away. (Ever envy the tourist from Nebraska with that virgin white skin?....the lack of sun is the reason). Once we have these tell tale signs of aging, a simple, permanent, non surgical treatment that takes about an hour will erase and rejuvenate our skin to that of a baby. It is called the Exoderm lift. Basically it is a deep peel (done only by physicians) that lifts the pigment out of the skin, stimulates collagen formation to build a new founda-tion and tightens the skin in the process. It takes a week to recover and see this baby smooth skin that looks like a light sun burn. Over the next month it lightens and one can use makeup to accentuate the new face in as little as 7 days.

GIBBONS, DO, FAMILY MEDICINEMedical Director, Jupiter Medical CenterÂs Urgent Care CenterNo matter what grade your child is about to enter, thereÂs always the yearly back-to-school checklist of todos: shopping for school supplies, filling out per-mission forms Â„ and the pediatric check-up. While it may not seem as cru-cial, a yearly physical exami-nation is a very important part of your childÂs healthcare. The back-to-school season is a convenient time for putting the exam on your familyÂs schedule. Additionally, children involved in school athletic programs should receive a sports-specific exam, which is good at screening for potential athletic health problems. Both school and sports physical exams provide an opportunity for healthcare providers to discuss important health issues with both guardians and children, and to ensure that the individual is healthy and physically prepared to per-form in school and on the playing field. Physical examinations also provide an opportunity to review the childÂs complete health history and ensure that he or she is up-to-date with current immunization recommendations for their age. At Jupiter Medical CenterÂs Urgent Care Center, we are offer both school and sports physicals. Our Urgent Care Center provides fast and affordable walk-in service in a convenient location. Jupiter Medical CenterÂs Urgent Care Center is located at 5430 Military Trail, Suite 64 in Jupiter (corner of Military Trail and Donald Ross Road in the Aba-coa Shopping Center). Hours are Mon-dayÂ…Saturday, 8 a.m.Â…8 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m.Â…6 p.m. For more information, see jupitermed.com/urgentcare or call 263-7010. Q Palm Beach Children's Hospital joins childrenÂ’s hospital group SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St. MaryÂs Medical Center has attained membership into the Chil-drenÂs Hospital Association Â„ the voice for more than 220 childrenÂs hospi-tals nationwide, the hospital said in a prepared statement. As champions for childrenÂs health, the association builds awareness of child health issues and advances public policy, enabling hospi-tals to better serve children. ÂBy participating in the ChildrenÂs Hospital Association, we now have broader access to a network of institu-tions and people who understand the health care needs of children,ÂŽ said Davide M. Carbone, chief executive offi-cer of Palm Beach ChildrenÂs Hospital at St. MaryÂs Medical Center, in the state-met. ÂWe are excited to collaborate with our peers and serve as an advocate on behalf of all children.ÂŽ The mission of the Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St. MaryÂs Medical Center is to deliver safe, cost-effective care to its patients and the community. Throughout the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast, the Palm Beach Chil-drenÂs Hospital is the only hospital devoted exclusively to children and their unique needs, the statement said. The hospital offers a full range of pedi-atric care from emergencies to specialty services to complex surgical care. ÂWe are pleased to welcome the Palm Beach Children's Hospital and look for-ward to its active involvement,ÂŽ said Mark Wietecha, ChildrenÂs Hospital Association president and CEO, in the statement. ÂOur hospital members are the backbone of the nationÂs pediatric health care infrastructure. Together, we are committed to providing the highest quality care and developing innovative solutions to impact the future of chil-drenÂs health and health care.ÂŽ ChildrenÂs hospitals represent less than 5 percent of all hospitals and pro-vide a disproportionately large share of the nationÂs pediatric acute clinical care. ChildrenÂs hospitals are also vital centers of primary and specialty pediatric medical education and are leaders in pediatric research. Q
HEALTHY LIVINGState-of-the-art robotic surgery offered at Palm Beach Gardens Medical CenterRobotic surgery is not just science fiction. Robotic surgery is a technique that allows a physician to perform an opera-tion using a computer that remotely controls tiny instruments attached to a robot. While it is still considered to be in its infancy, robotic surgery has a very exciting and promising future. Robotic surgery is available at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is active-ly using the da Vinci Surgical System, a state-of-the-art technology designed to offer greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas. The da Vinci Surgical System allows extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Potential benefits of robotic assisted surgeries may include:Q Significantly less pain.Q Less blood loss.Q Less scarring.Q Fewer complications.Q Shorter hospital stay.Q Shorter recovery time.Q Faster return to normal daily activities.Q Better clinical o utcomes in many cases.During this type of surgery, the physician sits at a computer station and directs the robotic movements. Small instruments attached to the robotÂs arms that have been inserted into the patient through small cuts match the doctorÂs hand move-ments. The physician can see highly mag-nified, three-dimensional images of the body shown on a monitor by using a camera attached to the end of a thin tube. Robotic surgery is similar to laparoscopic surgery, during which instru-ments are inserted through small inci-sions and the physician can view images on a two-dimensional video monitor. However, laparoscopic surgery is chal-lenging because the physician must look at the monitor and move the instru-ments at the same time. Current instru-ments have only a four-degree range of motion, and there is a decreased sense of touch. During robotic sur-gery, the physician has a better view of the area being operated on, sits in a more comfortable position, and can move in a more natural way with seven degrees of motion like the human wrist and hand. There are several benefits associated with robotic surgery. The robot can reduce the physicianÂs movements, moving half an inch for every one inch moved by the doctor, and lessen the effect of any hand tremors that could make a surgery less precise. Robotic instruments also can be used to access hard-to-reach areas of the body more readily through smaller incisions versus traditional open or laparoscopic surgery. Robotic surgery cannot be used for certain procedures that are especially complex. However, it has been success-fully used in a variety of different operations, including coronary artery bypass, knee surgery, hip replace-ment, kidney removal, hysterectomy, mitral valve repair, fundoplication, gall-bladder removal, radical prostatectomy and tubal ligation.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com Constructive criticism or bullying? Either way, keep your coolLaurie fought back tears as she read the email: ÂLaurie, IÂm confused by the latest memo you sent me for review. I re-read it twice, and not only doesnÂt it answer the clientÂs question, it just doesnÂt make sense. Please revise it immediately because we certainly canÂt send it out as is.ÂŽ Marcy, LaurieÂs immediate supervisor, never minced words. Laurie had been at the firm for two years, and she knew that for the most part, she had a good reputation. Both Laurie and Marcy reported to George, the director of their team, and George regularly complimented Laurie for her contributions. However, Marcy had a way of making Laurie doubt herself all the time. For whatever reason, Marcy had had it in for Laurie from the start. Marcy never lost an opportunity to point out LaurieÂs gaffes Â„ in fact she seemed to relish tripping her up. Laurie struggled to understand why she let Marcy get to her so. But, if truth be told, this kind of upset wasnÂt new. The same thing had happened to Laurie at her last job. One former colleague used to delight in putting her down, and Laurie was utterly unable to stand up for herself or dismiss the criticism. It seemed that whenever another person was critical of her (or, more importantly, she perceived that another person was being critical), she would become tongue-tied and intimidated.Understandably, it never feels good to hear criticism. WeÂve all faced that hor-rible feeling in the pit of our stomachs: Another person has questioned our per-formance, and we feel attacked. When caught off-guard, itÂs not uncommon to react defensively, protesting the verac-ity of the message, or hotly rebutting our critic. ÂHow dare this person say such things? Who are they to questions our abilities?ÂŽ Unfortunately, this only escalates the negativity. In the workplace, and academic environments, the ability to accept difficult feedback, process it, and use it for a vehicle of growth is an important part of oneÂs personal and career development. ThereÂs always a learning curve in any position we take on. Making mistakes is part of the process. When weÂre able to take these missteps in stride, and maintain our equilibrium, weÂll best be able to think clearly and creatively. If weÂve been in the unpleasant position of being chastised by a colleague or superior, we may understandably react with strong emotions. However, itÂs on occasions like these that itÂs advisable to take a deep breath and step back to review whatÂs happened and ratio-nally consider whether thereÂs any merit to the charges. If we repeatedly hear common themes critiquing our perfor-mance, thereÂs likely some substance to the concerns. If we conclude that, in fact weÂve fallen short, corrective action is in order. Requesting guidance and asking key questions for clarification demonstrates a willingness to accept constructive feedback Â„ both negative and positive. If we aggressively attempt to prove the other person wrong or dispute their allegations, we may unwit-tingly substantiate their doubts. When weÂve borne the brunt of hostile focus, thereÂs a risk weÂll take the criticism so much to heart, weÂll become dejected and doubt ourselves. Ruminat-ing endlessly about what weÂve done wrong and worrying that things will never improve may begin a cascade of self-defeating doubts. ItÂs important to put the negativity into a broader con-text, and to remember our strengths and talents. We are not just the product of our failures. ItÂs important that we take care not to assume a ÂvictimÂŽ mentality, believing we are being falsely accused. When we carry a chip on our shoulders we often shut ourselves off from valuable oppor-tunities to improve our performance and to eventually repair the negative impressions people have of us. ItÂs very important to consider the source of the criticism. If weÂve heard from a person we respect thereÂs prob-ably value to their comments. They may actually believe theyÂre offering constructive support. If we can push through the defensive, heartsick feel-ings sufficiently to process what theyÂre saying, and express a desire to add a valuable contribution to the team, we may actually learn a great deal. And, in the process, we may command a greater respect, and might even deepen the bond with the critic. However, weÂve all interfaced with negative, mean-spirited types who relish the power of intimidating others. There are bullies in every arena, and there are always those build themselves up by targeting weaker links. If weÂre the lat-est victims, itÂs clearly in our interest to take the critique in context. Recognizing that this person is not likely to willingly change, places us in the unenviable position of coming up with a long-term strategy to protect our position within the company. Obviously, toughing out a strategy to either ignore or minimize the sting of the other personÂs behavior is best. In addition, developing strate-gic alliances with well-positioned col-leagues may help bolster our positions. But there are some unfortunate occasions where the best laid plans are still ineffective and the other personÂs offens-es are intolerable. It may then be neces-sary to confer with the human resource personnel or the next in command. We may ultimately consider transferring within the company or even beginning to hone our resumes in preparation for a job search. We can never control the hostile or offensive behavior of other people, but we certainly can take charge of our own emotions and reactions. We can use humiliating setbacks as a springboard for new possibilities. Learning to hold our own in the face of negative feedback is an important skill that will greatly impact our ability to navigate lifeÂs chal-lenges.

D ear Kelly, IÂve gone on a handful of dates with a man I met at an Âon-line relatedÂŽ singles meet group. He has (conveniently) forgotten his wal-let a couple of times when dining out. What should I do? W ell, that doesnÂt sound very good at all. It reminds me of the old: ÂIÂve got to go to the restroom trick around the time the bill comes.ÂŽ My Â“ rst instinct is to tell you to Dump Him...but I donÂt like to be cruel without know-ing the whole story. So I ask you: ÂWhat other signs does he show of Â“ nancial Insecurity or dishonesty?ÂŽ Does he have a job? How old is he--and how old are you? (I.E. if you are in col-lege this may not matter at all!) Where and how does he live? Does he seem mentally sound otherwise? If there are a few signs that he is ÂoffÂŽ mentally or Â“ nancially then he is NOT ready for love! You canÂt be READY FOR LOVE if you are in any kind of crisis...albeit Â“ nancial or otherwise. ItÂs just not promising to start a healthy long-term relationship if you are stand-ing on one foot (so to speak). My goal is to represent men (and women) who are secure in many ways...and who donÂt ÂneedÂŽ a romantic partner to save them. It is best to date from a pool of people who are happy with their life but there is one thing missing...YOU. If you feel you are dating a man who is in Â“ nancial jeopardy (and/or is dishonest about it)...then you should consider looking for better candidates! ItÂs all about where you are looking. If you are looking to meet men at a local bar or free or cheap online meet greet group then you may be asking for a wide variety of disaster. In many cases, you get what you pay for...and it seems as though you are paying for it too...i.e. din-ner is on you! DonÂt worry though...the fact that you came to me for help tells me you are on the road to happiness...so do stay on this road. BIOGRAPHICAL Kelly Leary is the Co-Founder of Precision Dating.

Q A22 WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013
BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14 2013 A23 Seniors nationwide are reporting scam phone calls informing them that a new Medicare card is in the mail, the Better Business Bureau reports. The BBB says: Hang up on suspicious callers and donÂt fall for this attempt to obtain your per-sonal information. How the scam works: You answer the phone, and the unknown caller, often with an accent, claims to be with Medicare or another government office. He informs you that your new Medi-care card is in the mail, and you will receive it in a few days. In the meantime, you need to set up your direct deposit so your Medicare funds can be deposited into your bank account. To do this, you just need to tell the caller your bank-ing information. He/she will take care of the rest. Of course, there is no new card and no direct deposit. The caller just wants you to share your bank-ing information so he/she can steal from your account. A twist on the Medicare card scam: This is just one twist on the Medicare card scam. Scammers may also ask you to verify your identity in order to receive the new card. They will ask for your Medicare card number, which is the same as your Social Security number, as well as other per-sonal information. With that info, a scammer can easily steal your identity. How to avoid Medicare Card identity theft: Protect yourself from scammers by following these tips: Â€ DonÂt carry your Medicare card around in your wallet. If the card is lost or stolen, a scammer can use information to commit identity theft. Â€ DonÂt give your information out over the Internet, over the phone, or to anyone who comes to your home uninvited. Only give person-al information to doctors or other providers approved by Medicare. If you suspect identity theft, or feel like you gave your per-sonal information to someone you shouldnÂt have, call the Federal Trade CommissionÂs ID Theft Hot-line at 1-877-438-4338. See Medicare.gov for more information about Medicare fraud, ID theft and other issues. For advice on preventing these crimes, to find out more about scams, to check the reliability of a company and find trustworthy businesses, see BBB.org. As the leader in advancing marketplace trust for 100 years, Better Business Bureau is an unbiased non-profit organization that sets and upholds high standards for fair and honest business behavior.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYMoney beliefs rooted in childhood experiencesPositive behaviors dealing with money are a critical element in forming healthy relationships with our spouses, loved ones, children and even the rela-tionship with ourselves. Conversely, negative money behaviors can wreak havoc in any relation-ship. As noted previously in this col-umn, money issues are the number one reason for divorce. Obviously, a coupleÂs incompatibility in their spend-ing and saving habits can be a core problem in their relationship. Often other money issues can be just as damaging and prevalent in a marriage or other form of relationship, including loving money more than a spouse or loved one; staying in a mar-riage or other form of relationship that once began as love, yet now has dissipated into merely a contract/com-mitment; growing and maintaining a relationship so as to accrue financial benefit. These examples are so old that you can find many of these themes in the book of Genesis. Too often, couples enter into marriage before even identifying their respective money behaviors. Others do run a mental note about their part-nerÂs behaviors, but then labeled them as needing to be changed in the future. But possibly more important than pin-pointing differences in money behaviors is identifying the money beliefs behind those behaviors. Those beliefs are likely entrenched and not easily changed, negotiated or recast. A couple having matured beyond infatuation and considering a meaning-ful future should identify differences in money behaviors. A common problem is that one likes to save for the future and the other wants to build the biggest house, taking on moderate leverage. Discussions might lead to a dead end or it might turn into an argument. The couple becomes wrongly focused on what is the ÂrightÂŽ money behavior. The couple might want to understand that they are acting out their personalized Âmoney scripts,ÂŽ a term coined by two psychologists who have studied core beliefs about money that drive adult financial behaviors. ÂMoney scripts are typically unconscious behaviors, developed in childhood, passed down from generation to gen-eration within families and cultures, contextually bound, and often only par-tial truthsÂŽ (Klontz and Klontz 2009). Sometimes the scripts were developed in response to financial traumaÂƒ played out in a specific, short-lived crisis or an ongoing financial drama. ÂMoney scripts can become resistant to change, even when they are self-destructiveÂŽ (Klontz and Klontz 2009). Researchers Brad and Ted Klonz identified four categories of money behavior; three are negative and one is positive. The three negative money beliefs are: money avoidance (e.g., believing that money is bad, the rich are greedy or donÂt deserve money); money status (e.g., believing that their self-worth is tied to their net worth/possessions); and money worship (e.g., believing that money brings happi-ness and solves all problems) Collec-tively, these belief patterns are associ-ated with lower levels of net worth, lower income and higher amounts of revolving credit. Unfortunately, many of these beliefs are well accepted and not shunned. Also, unfortunately, the one money belief that creates good money behav-ior is often labeled as an unattractive personality trait. Money vigilance is manifested in: Âfrugality, discreetness, and anxiety about money.ÂŽ These traits appear to be Âprotective factors against poor financial health and destructive financial behaviors.ÂŽ However, caution needs to be taken to avoid excessive frugality, wariness and anxiety that might prevent someone from enjoying his lifeÂƒ and forming new relationships as he might view the relationship as a money risk; undertaking new business ventures as they might be too risky; and allocating time away from the task of wealth creation for leisure, for good health or for good relationships. The study found that money scripts have a common thread: how a person remembers a childhood financial trau-ma. For instance, if an event happens in childhood in which the family was ÂsavedÂŽ from a financial disaster, the adult might remember it as an example that money solves everything and there is nothing about which to worry. If the family narr owly escaped calamity, then the adult might have an attitude of vigi-lance. Gender, race and education are factors irrelevant to the money script; what counts is the emotional reaction to the childhood trauma. Of what practical value is the information from this study? It would seem that if you want healthy money behaviors, then you want to be money vigilant; that you will want to have relationships with like-minded adults; and that you will want to raise children who are money vigilant. Most couples find themselves in a relationship with a person with dif-fering money behaviors and should try to spend more time to understand the beliefs behind their behavior. For instance, a spouse trying to get the other person to be vigilant with her finances might face an impossible task if the other person experienced child-hood traumas that resulted in dislike of money (and she canÂt talk about money or its importance) or that resulted in money filling a need for status (as she must own big houses, fancy cars and designer clothes.) But before you jump the gun and label someoneÂs money behaviors as bad, take some time and consider his or her childhood experiences and the belief system that these experiences engendered. Furthermore, financial advisors might consider getting to know their clientsÂ money beliefs as such beliefs will determine an invest-ment planÂs suitability in relation to the clientÂs psyche.

Ministries offers spiritual abundance in helping feed the poorMississippi is a southern state whose name inspires an avalanche of images that tend to repel rather than incite oneÂs interest. Most of us think we know too much already; and what we think we know did not leave a good impression. Efforts to promote the state must overcome a negative bias, fairly earned or not, that puts Mississippi generally nowhere near the top of almost anyoneÂs bucket list. State marketers at one time deter-mined fear was the biggest deterrent to the stateÂs tourism. The wariness produced by the stateÂs history is more than justified. In the worst of times, those seeking racial justice had a bullÂs eye on their back. Expecting economic opportunity is pretty much a dead letter, too. Missis-sippi often ranks last when compared to measures of well-being and per capita income among states overall; and the poverty of especially African-American residents is brutal, the kind that stands your hair on end. Putting casinos in the cotton fields in the late Â90Âs was supposed to change all that. Of course, it did not. With this history of cathartic gloom, doom and racial turmoil, it makes perfect sense that the Mississippi Delta would be the birthplace of the blues. My thinking about all this was prompted by a recent visit to C.R.O.S. Ministries. The agencyÂs devotion to its charitable cause is a reminder that hope in desperate circumstances often comes from a deeply spiritual place. C.R.O.S. is an interfaith min-istries serving Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. Having lived and worked in Mississippi for almost decade, I developed a keen sense of appreciation for the churches and congregations that mobilized faith-based initiatives to address issues of poverty and racial injustice. It is hard to imagine any upside toward progress in Mississippi without the leadership and commitment of the African-American church and other communities of faith. Today, faith-based initiatives are an important source of leadership promoting posi-tive change in diverse communities found throughout the South, includ-ing Florida and Palm Beach County. The term Âfaith-basedÂŽ commonly refers to religious organizations that join together to provide services in support of the public good, such as helping the elderly, providing shelter to the homeless, feeding the hungry, and advocacy to right the wrongs suffered by those marginalized in our society. The theologies that distin-guish systems of religious belief are a lens through which congregants can interpret teachings in relation to human rights, poverty and social justice. This reflective soul-search-ing inspires a moral reaction to the poverty in the secular world caused by social injustice; oneÂs faith calls forth acts of service on behalf of the poor and oppressed in witness to the love of God that is at the core of the spiritual self. C.R.O.S. Ministries has, for 35 years, tapped into this well of spiri-tual abundance by working across different faiths and organizations, Âto create solutions to the unmet needs of people in our community.ÂŽ The organization seeks to accomplish its vision by working directly with con-gregants; intercession and advocacy with public and private agencies; and ministries that provide direct servic-es to individuals, families, and chil-dren. The organizationÂs Harvest for Hope program has sought to address the dramatic rise in hunger and food security issues in Palm Beach Coun-ty by expanding its food gleaning and distributions through the one hundred or so community food pan-tries and feeding programs scattered throughout the county. C.R.O.S works with congregations, groups, and individuals countywide to collect nonperishable food items and takes them to the closest food pantry. The agency has also undertak-en gleaning initiatives involving vol-unteers picking produce left behind by commercial harvesting. The Vil-lage Baptist Church and the Palm Beach County Food Bank distributes the food to local agencies that feed the hungry through the Food Recov-ery Program. This past gleaning sea-son, volunteers of C.R.O.S. Ministries gleaned 346,680 pounds of produce. These and other C.R.O.S programs support children and families and encourage self-sufficiency among those in need. Hunger and poverty in Palm Beach County are the ghosts of MississippiÂs worst. Over 12 percent of PBC fami-lies live below the federal poverty level ($21, 200 for a family of four); and one in three households with income of $35,000 or less annually run out of food before a check comes in to buy more. In the richest nation in the world, in a region hosting some of the most affluent zip codes in the country, these issues should call us to prayer. At C.R.O.S Ministries, it already has.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 REAL ESTATE A25 Old chair features innovative space-saving designSome old pieces of dual-purpose furniture are so useful they should inspire new designs. One such famous design is a convertible Âdesk and chairÂŽ originally designed by Stephen Hedges of New York City in about 1854. The desk has an oval top and four legs. It opens and a chair with a rounded back swings out so it can be used to write at the half-round desk. It has drawers, a leather writing surface and casters on its legs. When not in use, the desk could be put back together and used as a plain table about 35 by 29 inches. The desk-chair was pat-ented, but not for the design Â„ just for the hinge mechanism.About 17 of these desks are known, and several of them are in museums. But 19th-century ÂbrownÂŽ furniture is not selling well to average collectors. One of these desks sold at a 1998 ChristieÂs auction for $29,900. Neal Auction Co. of New Orleans sold one for just $4,481 in November 2012.Q: I have several crockery jars about 6 inches tall stamped ÂWeymanÂs Snuff.ÂŽ Can you tell me when they were made and what theyÂre worth?A: George Weyman opened a tobacco shop in Pittsburgh in 1822. He was the inventor of Copenhagen snuff. The com-pany became Weyman & Bros. in 1870, so your jar was probably made before then. There were several changes in name and ownership until it became the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. in 2001. That company still is in business. Your WeymanÂs Snuff jar is worth about $25.Q: My son inherited a cast-iron mechanical bank that has been in the family for five or six generations. I think itÂs called a ÂHoover bank.ÂŽ ItÂs in the form of a man sitting in an office chair with one hand extended. When you put a coin in his hand, he puts it in his jacket pocket and nods his head. The bank has its origi-nal paint and has never been refurbished. We are curious about its value.A: The design for your sonÂs mechanical bank, known as the ÂTammany Bank,ÂŽ was patented by John Hall of Watertown, Mass., in 1873. It also has been known as ÂLittle Fat Man BankÂŽ and ÂBoss Tweed.ÂŽ Tammany Hall was a New York City political organization, and William ÂBossÂŽ Tweed was its corrupt leader. He was jailed for embezzlement in 1873. J. & E. Stevens Co. of Cromwell, Conn., introduced the bank in 1875 and contin-ued making it for about 45 years. Early versions of the bank did not include its name, but later banks were labeled ÂTam-many BankÂŽ on the side of the chair. Both 1873 and 1875 patent dates can be found on the bank. In most versions, the man is wearing gray pants. A rare version with brown pants sells for the highest price, $500 to $600. The bank is very popular and has been reproduced.Q: I would like some information about a TV lamp that has been in my family since the 1950s. ItÂs a figural leop-ard designed by Leland Claes in 1956. If I decided to sell it, what would a fair price be?A: Figural TV lamps were popular for one decade, the 1950s. Television sets were being purchased by families across the country, and many people thought watching TV sets without indirect light-ing could harm their eyes. Leland Claes (1916-2000) of Turlock, Calif., designed a lot of TV lamps shaped like cats or dogs. The majority of Claes lamps were manu-factured by William H. Hirsch Manufac-turing Co. of Los Angeles. The lamp sat on top of a TV set and shed light through the animalÂs eyes or open back. Most Claes TV lamps sell for under $100, but yours is extremely rare and could bring 10 times that if itÂs in perfect condition.Q: I own a white linen tablecloth with 12 matching napkins. The table-cloth is rectangular and measures 80 by 64 inches. The napkins are 21 inches square. The set is in its original box and has never been used. The box is labeled ÂTrousseau Linen Outfitters, Inc., Origi-nators of the Famous Trousseau Linen Outfit, 187 No. LaSalle St., Chicago 1, Ill.ÂŽ I have been told linen tablecloths are no longer made. Please tell me how old the set is and what itÂs worth.A: A big clue to the age of your set is the address. The use of a single-digit postal code means your set was made between 1943 and 1963. It probably dates from the 1940s or early 1950s. Linen tablecloths and napkins are still made both here and around the world. They have to be ironed once theyÂre laun-dered, which makes them less appealing to many people. Plain white linen table-cloth and napkin sets the age of yours sell for about $50.Tip: DonÂt lean back on your bedÂs headboard if you have wet or oily hair. You will damage the headboardÂs fin-ish.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES n t T W m f terry KOVELnews@floridaweekly.com This piece of furniture can turn into a table or remain a rounded desk and chair. It sold for $4,481 at a Neal Auction Co. sale last November. It was made by a New York City furniture craftsman in about 1854. Seasonal rentals for 2014 are moving fast in the Palm BeachesOver the last several weeks, I have been writing about all the recent sales activity and reduc-tions in active property listings, but I have also been busy search-ing for seasonal rentals for many buyers this summer. Seasonal renters usually begin their search a year ahead of time when they are getting ready to head back North or to their main residence. They want to make sure they have somewhere to come back to the following year, so many clients lock in their rental rate and location by May of the year prior. I have been particularly busy with seasonal rentals for 2014 this summer because I have three or four clients who did not find the home they were looking for, and then another two clients who want to experience the area and amenities before making a decision to purchase. Each day I receive requests from other realtors from the multiple listing service, request-ing a rental for a family Â„ a rental that may not be listed in the multiple listing service. This means I am not alone in this search for good rentals in the location my clients are requesting. I am one of many realtors searching for the same type of rental. One family of clients I am working with has joined a country club and they are very specific in their location and price point where they would like to rent. They want to try living outside the club next year and experience all the amenities of beachfront living. I have been searching for a rental for the last six weeks and have sent several options to them; some fit their needs and some that could be acceptable. A few are higher in price then they want to spend and a few are not in the right location. I have also set them up on an automatic email alert system that alerts them each time a rental comes on the market that could fit their criteria. Nothing seems to fit yet, but I am very clear that when something does fit their needs, they may not have the time to fly down to the area and view the rental prior to signing an agreement. I let them know that they have to trust my judgment based on what I know about the location and the rental itself. I am willing to view the rental for them to make sure it meets their criteria so they do not lose the opportunity. This is not typical in other areas, so my clients are still struggling with the fact that they may not have the time to see the property prior to making a com-mitment, especially when three months rent will cost $30,000 to $40,000; all of which has to be paid up front. But as they are seeing the rentals that do come on the mar-ket go under contract in a few days, they are certainly warming up to the idea that they may not have the time to come to the area. By the time they actually get a flight, come down and view the property, there may be several changes. New properties may become available, while the proper-ties they wanted to view are already rented. We are fortunate to be in this position and it is becom-ing even more of a challenge, because now there are buy-ers who are looking to rent since the inventory is so low for active home listings for sale. If you are a property owner and are considering renting for the 2013-2014 sea-son, now is the time to put it on the market for rent. You most likely will get full ask-ing price or very close to it and the quality of the renters will most likely be A+!

He was directing workers from the fairgrounds as they wired speakers for a stereo system so visitors could listen to LPs of big band recordings, that music that he loved so much. He came by his love of the music honestly. Mr. Grisafi started playing at age 15 in bands in New York. In 1951, he was drafted into the Army and assigned to the Dixie Division Army Band. After he was discharged in 1953, Mr. Grisafi owned a jewelry business in New York. He also played that sweet soprano sax with a combo for wed-dings, club dates and such. During that time he raised four children. He and his wife, Yvette, came to Palm Beach Gardens. In South Florida, he continued to play.Palm Beach Gardens man delivers music and a legacy to rememberBY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@Â” oridaweekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY FILE PHOTO/SCOTT SIMMONS Ben Grisafi in 2012 at the Sally Bennett Big Band Hall of Fame.SEE GRISAFI, A30 X
ItÂs a different story with ÂCompany.ÂŽÂÂCompanyÂ is kind of now the great experiment. IÂve done two classic musi-cals,ÂŽ said William Hayes, producing artistic director. ÂÂCompanyÂ is by com-parison more contemporary.ÂŽ The score includes ÂBeing Alive,ÂŽ ÂSide by Side by Side,ÂŽ ÂThe Ladies Who LunchÂŽ and the title song, but itÂs not as well known as ÂCamelotÂŽ or ÂLa Mancha.ÂŽ So why do it? ÂThe intellectual nature of it, the complexity of it, the difficulty of sing-ing it, the heart and soul of the music,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said, himself a classically trained vocalist. ÂItÂs a symphony. Other than opera, itÂs the most chal-lenging music to sing.ÂŽ For ÂLa Mancha,ÂŽ Mr. Cholerton and Mr. Hayes cast Broadway powerhouse William Michals as their Don Quixote. For ÂCompany,ÂŽ they have tapped Quinn VanAntwerp, who made his Broadway debut in 2011 as Bob Gaudio in ÂJersey BoysÂŽ after performing the role on the road for three years. ÂQuinn was someone who came in for auditions,ÂŽ Mr. Cholerton said. ÂI saw an unbelievable talent when I went to New York to do auditions.ÂŽ He thought Mr. VanAntwerp would make a believable Bobby. ÂWhat I wanted in my Bobby was someone you wanted to hang with at a party,ÂŽ he said. But the musical is about how interested Bobby is in the people who surround him. For that, Mr. VanAntwerp fit the bill.ÂOh, yeah. And he has an unbelievable voice,ÂŽ Mr. Cholerton said. ItÂs actually the perfect vehicle in a way for Dramaworks, which has one other Sondheim show to its credit, ÂSide By Side By Sondheim,ÂŽ in 2004. Perhaps Mr. Sondheim, known for his complex lyrics, is the Edward Albee of musical theater. ÂBecause weÂre still Dramaworks, itÂs still going to be more about telling the story than the music,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. And telling the story is something the company always has done well. ÂThis year has been a stellar season. ÂA Delicate BalanceÂ broke box office records, as did ÂA Raisin in the Sun,ÂÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. Hence a work by Sondheim.ÂI specifically did ÂCamelotÂ in season because again that was a classic musi-cal and that has the name recognition and a substantial story to it about love and betrayal,ÂŽ he said. That explains ÂLa Mancha.ÂŽÂI want as many people as possible to see these and get them to come back. ÂCompanyÂ is kind of now the great experiment. IÂve done two classic musi-cals. ÂCompanyÂ is by comparison more contemporary. IÂm also hoping thatÂs going to attract a younger audience,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. Arts executives everywhere are courting that next generation. ÂWe had lots of families at ÂLa Mancha.Â I hope thatÂs going to be the same at ÂCompany.Â ItÂs parents and grandpar-ents giving Âtheir kids an experience that they had as a kid.ÂŽ And hereÂs where the concert version of a musical can help. ÂDoing it in this style costs me a fraction of what it costs to mount a full musical. Tickets are $35 as opposed to $60, so it makes it affordable for fami-lies to go out, plus we have the student tickets for $10,ÂŽ he said. ÂÂCompanyÂ is another limited run, but that could change. I could have extended ÂMan of La ManchaÂ a few more weeks. The only reason I didnÂt was because we had ÂCompanyÂ coming in.ÂŽ It could be a tradition.ÂThe trend here is that this is going to be our summer thing to do con-certs,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. ÂEven the pre-sales for ÂCompanyÂ in August are high-er even than when ÂLa ManchaÂ started. IÂve already broken even on ÂCompanyÂ before it started.ÂŽ The enthusiasm is infectious.ÂItÂs just such a wonderful treat and gift,ÂŽ said Mr. Cholerton, adding, ÂPar-ticularly having the ability to do it at Dramaworks, where everything is done first rate, top notch.ÂŽ Q Â“COMPANYÂ”From page 29 >>What: Steven SondheimÂ’s Â“CompanyÂ” >>When: Through Aug. 18 >>Where: Palm Beach Dramaworks Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach>>Cost: $35 >>Info: 514-4042 or www.palmbeach dramaworks.org in the know COURTESY PHOTO/NANIQUE GHERIDIAN Paul Reekie (piano), Quinn Van Antwerp, Laura Hodos, Alex Hale, Wayne LeGette and Nick Duckart rehearse for Palm Beach Dra-maworksÂ’ production of Â“Company.Â”Last fall, Mr. Grisafi stepped into a recording studio with The Sally Bennett Big Band to record ÂMagic Moments.ÂŽ This spring, he again returned to the studio to record ÂBig Band Bash.ÂŽ The effort seemed to be what kept Mr. Grisafi going. ÂHere is an opportunity for lovers of big band music around the globe to get a taste of what we have in Palm Beach County,ÂŽ he said earlier this year. The title track of that first CD, ÂMagic Moments,ÂŽ was composed by the museumÂs founder, Sally Bennett. ÂI think of it as a lasting legacy to give the hall of fame a big band of its own,ÂŽ Mr. Grisafi said. Of special significance, Mr. Grisafi made the arrangements for every song featured on both CDs. He had wanted to build an audience for the museum and its orches-tra. Hopefully those recordings will secure a legacy for that museum Â„ and for Mr. Grisafi. His hard work and his passion deserve to be remembered. As does that wonderful music.All proceeds from sales of the CDs benefit The Sally Bennett Big Band Hall of Fame Museum and Yester-year Village. The museum is at Yes-teryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds in suburban West Palm Beach. It is open during the fair, cer-tain events and by appointment. See southfloridafair.com.

Q GRISAFIFrom page 29 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 Â— 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 Â“get him out of the houseÂ” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. Â“IÂ’ve always been a car guy,Â” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturerÂ’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 Â— dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlinÂ’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 Â“AutoMax doesnÂ’t look like your typical car lot,Â” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. Â“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.Â” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. Â“I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,Â” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. Â“There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldnÂ’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. Â“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.Â“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,Â” Mr. McLaughlin said. Â“I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealerÂ’s fees.Â” 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. Â“I donÂ’t make any money on those cars,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People donÂ’t realize how much work goes into what we do.Â” Mr. McLaughlinÂ’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 Â— BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus Â— can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you donÂ’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

A34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYLike their humans used to, they sit on the front porch and watch the world pass by. With her camera, Ms. Dickerson has captured canines in their natural environment and assembled them in her book ÂPorch DogsÂŽ ($29.95, John F. Blair, Publisher). ÂThere are a lot of dog books out there,ÂŽ she acknowledges, Âbut this one is special. Most dog books are photos of dogs in a studio, a human-ized portrait of a dog. But mine are environmental portraits of dogs, cap-turing the dog on the dogÂs terms.ÂŽ In the photos the dogs sit in red wagons or on white wicker furniture or peer out from behind majestic white pillars. Many look as if theyÂre one second away from wagging their tails in welcome. (And the homes Â„ many from the 1800s and 1700s Â„ look equally inviting.) Besides dogs on porches, Ms. DickersonÂs photos also include dogs on docks, dogs in yards, dogs in front of shops, dogs on benches and swings and dogs underneath porches. ÂThe premise is, a dog will make a porch out of anything,ÂŽ she says. ÂItÂs an architectural term to us. To a dog, it represents a place of sanctuary and home. ItÂs a territorial imperative. A dog will make a porch out of any-thing.ÂŽ ThereÂs even a photo of a dog lounging on a miniature sofa in an art gal-lery in Natchez, Miss., the galleryÂs glass walls making Butter s, a six-yearold mixed breed, look as if heÂs living in a modern glass house designed by Philip Johnson. Her photos, Ms. Dickerson says, tell a story. ÂWeÂre Southerners, we communicate through stories,ÂŽ she says. ÂThese pictures are manifestations of those stories. What informs my work is the preservation of Southern culture, thatÂs the underlying theme.ÂŽ She worked on this book while working on her previous one, published in 2011: ÂGone: A Photographic Plea for Preservation.ÂŽ ÂGone,ÂŽ which includes a story by the late Shelby Foote, her cousin by marriage, high-lights her photos of neglected and abandoned antebellum homes in the South. Her dog photos were a combination of scheduled shoots and Âran-dom drive-bys,ÂŽ as she puts it. She estimates she drove more than 35,000 miles, hitting every state in the South-east. ÂIÂd be out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, drive by, see a fabulous porch, and thereÂd usually be a fabu-lous dog with it,ÂŽ she says. SheÂd stop her car and approach the owner, carrying her Yorkshire terrier, Teeny Baby, Âa sweet, little non-threat-ening dogÂŽ in her arms. SheÂd show the owner some of her photos on her iPad. ÂIf they didnÂt shoot me, IÂd explain what I was doing,ÂŽ she says. ÂTypically they lived in a historical home. People love to have their dog talked about: ÂOh, what a fabulous dog, so perfect for the book IÂm doing.Â ÂAnd IÂd talk about their house. People who live in historical homes are a special breed of people, theyÂre committed to history, and the preser-vation of something oldÂƒ Usually once I showed them the photos, theyÂd go, ÂOK,Â and let me photograph the dog. Everyone signed a release.ÂŽ Ms. Dickerson, whose work has appeared in online photo essays for The New York Times and Garden & Gun magazine, has had her dog por-traits exhibited at Slow Exposures gal-lery in Georgia and the Ogden Muse-um of Southern Art in New Orleans. She has a BA in anthropology, a BFA in film and a masterÂs in architecture. While her biography says that sheÂs Âmaintained a parallel career working on feature films in animation, light-ing, art direction and set design,ÂŽ her photography incorporates all her areas of interest. ÂI am a registered architect, and have worked as a preservation archi-tect,ÂŽ she says, Âand my first degree was in anthropology. That includes ethnographic photography, which is photography of living people, typically, but in my case, it was using dogs to capture a living culture.ÂŽ SheÂs very keen on preservation.ÂDonÂt forget your own history, whether itÂs speaking Navajo or liv-ing in the South or coming from Rus-sia. Whoever you are, donÂt disregard your own history, your own culture, the ancestors who define who you are today.ÂŽ Eastern cultures honor their ancestors while those in western culture try to forget who they are, she says. ÂSomeone came over on the boat, that first generation wanted to blend in,ÂŽ she says. ÂDonÂt do that. Honor your ancestors, honor your parents, preserve your past. DonÂt forget where you came from. And by all means, pass it on to the next generation. Become your own archivist.ÂŽ Included in ÂPorch DogsÂŽ is a photo she took in 1976. Shot on her grandparentsÂ farm in the Mississippi Delta, it shows five sisters sitting in front of a green build-ing. And on the porch, to the left, sits a dog. ÂThatÂs when it all began,ÂŽ she says. It wasnÂt an intentional dog-on-aporch shot, she says. ÂIt was just part of the integral unit of that family. ÂThereÂs always a dog on the porch in the South.ÂŽ Q PORCHFrom page 29Photographing a dog is easy.All you need is patience and the willingness to enter their world, says pho-tographer Nell Dickerson. She shares three tips to shooting good pictures of dogs. First of all, always get down on the dogÂs level. ÂIf itÂs an itty-bitty dog, then you have to get on your belly,ÂŽ she says. Your eye, and the camera lens, need to be at the dogÂs eye-level. ÂThatÂs the secret of a good dog portrait,ÂŽ she says. Second, if youÂre shooting an outdoor photo in August, in the south, your dog will likely be showing his or her tongue. ÂTheir tongues are just going to be hanging out,ÂŽ she warns. ÂYou have to work with that.ÂŽ To avoid that, most of the photos she took for her book, ÂPorch Dogs,ÂŽ were shot in the spring or fall, she reveals. Third, have patience.ÂThe best photos are the ones where the dog doesnÂt even know youÂre there,ÂŽ she says. ÂYouÂre just a chew toy on the porch.ÂŽ ThatÂs the way to get good candid shots. ÂThe best portraits (happen) when I hang out on the porch, hang out with the dog. The dog sniffs my camera bag, sniffs me, and eventually ignores me. ThatÂs when I have permission from the dog to be part of its world, and thatÂs when I get the best pictures,ÂŽ she says. ÂThey just hang out in their own universe.ÂŽ Taking a more formal portrait, with the dog posing, is another story. ÂSome well-trained hunting dogs, if you tell them to sit, they will, theyÂll hold a pose for you,ÂŽ Ms. Dickerson says. ÂBut you have to get their ears to stand up. Some dogs just have to have their ears up, because that shows intel-ligence in the dogÂs face, that itÂs alert.ÂŽ A person standing directly behind the photographerÂs head can help; they can squeeze a squeak toy, or clap once, to get the dogÂs attention. (Clap twice, and theyÂll come to you, she says.) ÂDo something totally out of context to surprise the dog,ÂŽ she suggests. ÂSome-times I let out this primeval animal scream. That ticks the dogÂs ears up!ÂŽ But be ready to capture the moment, because itÂs only novel the first time. ÂUsually, it only works once,ÂŽ she says.

A38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some emerging matters could impede the LionÂs progress in completing an impor-tant project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays.Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career m ove, and taking an out-of-town job could be a good way to do it.Q LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for Â„ no, demand Â„ help with this problem.Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circum-stance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action.Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) DonÂt lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas wonÂt work.Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unset-tling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward.Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) ThereÂs welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you.Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities.Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who donÂt keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results.Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a col-league could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. YouÂll soon find the situation shifting in your favor.Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadnÂt considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose.Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal con-flict while thereÂs still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate.Q BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of whatÂs right can inspire others if you remember not to push too hard to make your case.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 8-14, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A39FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Life has changed a lot for Jim Leiken in the two years since he came to Flori-da from New York to be executive chef at Caf Boulud in Palm Beach. Yes, he has stayed the course with the cuisine at the quintessentially French restaurant that has touches from Asia and the Mediterranean. But since moving to Florida from New York, he and his wife, Candace Chia, have become the parents of twins. That means they donÂt get out to dine as much as they might. ÂWe donÂt get out a lot. With the kids, weÂre kind of grounded. I actually do a good bit of cooking at home. The nice thing about being in Florida is that you can trot out the grill every day,ÂŽ he said. He and his wife have a small vegetable garden in their West Palm Beach backyard. ÂYou have real farm-to-table,ÂŽ he said, adding his garden has tomatoes, egg-plant and such. ÂIt has been interesting learning what works in what season.ÂŽ That same detail applies to his work at Caf Boulud. He has been with the Boulud group since 2001. He first worked at Daniel in New York City. He moved on to become sous chef at db Bistro ModerneÂs kitchen in Mid-town Manhattan, and opened DBGB Kitchen and Bar as executive chef in 2009. So how does Palm Beach differ from Manhattan? ÂPeople want to see things with a lighter touch down here. ItÂs not just cooking techniques, but more fish, olive oil, more Mediterranean,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe seasons are a little bit backward compared to what I was used to in New York. Even though it might be Decem-ber you donÂt want to put a cassoulet on the menu. Generally things that are lighter tend to fare pretty well here.ÂŽ One of his favorite recipes this summer is his green gazpacho. ÂEverybody and their cousin does a gazpacho in the summertime,ÂŽ he said, laughing. ÂThereÂs always a red, tomato-based one and a white one with bread and almonds and milk. But this one has green grapes and green tomatoes as the base of it.ÂŽ It also has almonds and Âa little bit of heat from the poblanos,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂm very happy with the combination.ÂŽ That heat is a mellow one; after all, part of his job is knowing his customers, and their palates. ÂNot everybody responds to the same thing. What works in Santa Fe may not work in Palm Beach. People want things that are flavorful but not overwhelm-ing,ÂŽ he said.Name: Jim LeikenAge: 38Original Hometown: Scarsdale, N.Y.Restaurant: Caf Boulud Palm BeachMission: Exceed the expectations of our guests, and pass on what IÂve learned to my cooksCuisine: Modern FrenchTraining: 12 years working for Daniel BouludWhatÂs your footwear of choice in the kitchen?

There are no shortcuts to becoming a great chef Â„ if you donÂt pay your dues and master your fundamentals, you will never have a strong base to build on. This is an all-or-nothing profession Â„ you will find out pretty quickly if you love it or you hate it; if itÂs the latter, get out and find an easier way to make a living; if itÂs the former, it will take over your whole life, but you will be hard-pressed to notice or care. Q In the kitchen with...Jim Leiken, Caf Boulud, Palm Beach BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Dish: Shrimp Burrito The Place: Tin Fish, 118 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 223-2497 or tinfishclematis.comThe Price: $10.95The Details: This casual dining spot offers affordable fare thatÂs well prepared, plain and simple. The marble table and countertops are elegant, but thereÂs nothing highfalutin about the seafood at Tin Fish. The menu includes a raw bar, traditional garlic pots of mussels, clams and shrimp and crab cakes, as well as chicken tenders, burgers and such for landlubbers. There also is a menu of seafood tacos and burritos. This shrimp burrito was filled with perfectly cooked medium shrimp, plenty of rice and fresh greens. Also available: bur-ritos stuffed with fried cod, salmon, mahi, calamari, fried lobster or scallops. The coleslaw lent a tangy touch, and those waffle fries had just the right crispy, salty combination of flavors that only whet our appetites for more.
